I haven't posted for a while in this, and when I do, it seems to generally be fic or other fan contributions, but just in case that anyone still wants to follow me...

I have moved to hughes @ Dreamwidth!

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD ME ON DW! After getting amped up for Dreamwidth in the light of LJ's idiocy, I'm actually aiming to post a bit more to my journal, so, um... yes! It'll probably still be as incoherent as it was in the good ol' days, but there you go!

I'll also still be crossposting everything to Livejournal for the sake of ease -- fic and fan contributions included, so LJ users, never fear! You won't miss out on anything from my... all-important... self. Um.

On an added note, you can also find me on hughes @ tumblr 24/7, so feel free to add me there too if... you don't mind gratuitous postings of Dean/Cas Supernatural and Sam/Gene Life on Mars.

...Hughes is my new thang now. Idk. IS IT A DECENT HANDLE? At least now people won't confuse La Cidiana as Laci Diana, right dsgsalihdg

Laziest. Layout change. Ever. EEEEE. Can't quite bring myself to get rid of the Nathan moodset, though. ;A;

Oh, also, totally behind on schoolwork, as per usual. And I (somehow) got an internship at the writing department for a scripted show.

wow I haven't posted to my LJ in ages but finally... FINALLY, I found something worth posting.


seriously I am. I expected. so bad but this. is just. .....sob.

UHHH IN OTHER NEWS. MY LIFE RIGHT NOW. UM. Basically, just started going back to school at LMU, still super into Heroes despite my soul hurting and also... sort of... GETTING INTO DOCTOR WHO? Been watching a ton of it and I kind of want to musebox Ten somewhere even though I feel like a supaposer. ;A; ALSO I recently reworked my resume and submitted it for an internship I was v. interested in and... THEY GOT BACK TO ME THE NEXT DAY? WOOHOO. I feel like an idiot since they called in the morning and I didn't wake up until... 4, so when I called them back the day was already over even though they'd said today would be ideal for an interview so. Sob. Hope I didn't just screw myself over. D8 They said they'd call back this week to schedule an interview for next week but. YOU NEVER KNOW. I'll definitely be following up on this. :|a ...and I also hope I didn't come off as an idiot over the phone. Ggghhhhdkfjs ...although on the bright side, the extra time will give me a chance to get some... decent interview clothes, of which I recently realized I have none. :|

ANYWAY YES. LJ POST. CAN CHOOSE A MOOD AGAIN. AND DO THINGS. AAAAA. Also, right, another update: apped BUZZ LIGHTYEAR to [ profile] damned. And got in. [ profile] nest will be my Woody. This is going to be glorious.

BUT FIRST I need to post to Elle&L and, you know, prove I can multitask and stuff. ...which I think time has proven I can't BUT YOU NEVER KNOW UNLESS YOU WORK ON IT. OR something. I am incoherent.

I CHANGED MY LAYOUT. Well, not really – just the header and the colors. And the original layout isn't even my making so. Um. Yeah. I'm lazy.

But it does have Nathan on it, so. That's cool. :)

SPEAKING OF NATHAN OGOD HEROES TOMORROW. sldhaksjfasfasf Although some vague spoiler synopsis sentence has killed much of my expectation for What I Want More Than the Second Coming of Christ, I WILL STILL HOPE. BECAUSE I AM A MASOCHIST APPARENTLY AND THIS SHOW CONTINUES TO BE MY READILY ABUSIVE BOYFRIEND.

but no seriously i can't physically stop hoping for this ;; fuckfuckfuck

BUT EITHER WAY I am excited despite all reason and the fact that the rest of me is full of anxiety. D8 Baw, self. Baw.

In other news, holy shit I need to get letters of rec and the rest of my LMU application together and study/read for a Latin America History quiz on Tuesday auuuuggghh faaaaaaaaack.

Nearing the end of spring break, buuuuuuut I am ahead of Court in apps (even though I need to read way more and I'm also so so so behind on posts everywhere ahkajshfdkasjhfkajhsfka BUT) and I've been drawing more! 8D Some of this is thanks to the fact that I'm being SWIFTLY PULLED BACK INTO FMA FANGIRLING, and the fact that [ profile] loreamara finally posted the first chunk of her Hughes/Roy homunculus fic that I feel practically like a godmother to at this point is only helping me along into this, d'aaaawww MAI FMA BOYYYZ. <333

Of course, MY NATHAN HEROES LOVE CANNOT BE VANQUISHED YET, as proven by this new moodtheme that [ profile] laverinth oh-so-thoughtfullycruelly alerted me to. :( I COULD NOT RESIST.

Also, [ profile] loreamara set up a personal oekaki board for me, eeeeeeee. <3333 8DDD WILL HELP WITH RANDOM DOODLING. Also, got my passport stuff turned in annnnd I got like an hour of sleep last night and then napped. D8 I keep on wanting to do things and losing time and then realizing it's way too early in the morning when I can finally work on stuff with Court and jshfkajshfk T___T.... anyway, speaking of which, I should sleep now XD

Also, this FMA: Brotherhood opening is officially my fourth most-played song on iTunes. I have had the same iTunes library since around 2003. .......Man. :(

The timed icon meme (ganked from IM):

01. Choose an episode of anime or television series you have on your computer. Make sure you're certain you want that one, you cannot change your mind once you complete this step. DO NOT TELL YOUR FLIST WHAT YOU CHOSE.
02. Make note of how long the episode is.
03. Ask your flist to choose a time between 00:00 and whatever the length of your episode is. Be specific, (ie: 19:11, 21:09, 02:42)
04. Make them an icon using THAT FRAME ONLY no matter what it is. And remember, you can only use that ONE episode you chose previously, even if the person posting isn't familiar with it.

I'm going to try a few episodes from a few different shows... some of which may not be so predictable. >D Choose up to three timestamps from whichever episodes. (You can do the same show someone else picked, if you want.)

1. 24:09
2. 42:25
3. 41:27
4. 22:12
5. 44:31
6. 52:59

Okay, this is mainly just an excuse to use this new icon. UM.

The Mustang's brakes got fixed (sorta; they still squeak like hell) so I've been driving it lately. \o/ FUN. Today, me, Court, Andrew, and Jenny all went to Bay Cities, got food, and then came back here and hung out. And played board games. And we had an awesome time. Driving in a convertible on the freeway with your best buds on a nice day... one of moments in life when you're like "man, this is perfect."

Parents are out of town and so's my brother, so... I got the house to myself! I've been letting it become a mess more just because than out of laziness, and I cleaned up some of it with Jenny today. Need to get up early tomorrow to water all of Mom's plants and then... go back to sleep. Or maybe stay up until the sun rises and water them. And then sleep.

Watched some Batman: TAS tonight and then finished rewatching Batman Begins and taking notes. Also am practicing writing Bruce in a one-on-one RP with Court. Gonna be bringing Liquid back into Conscripted tomorrow, and hopefully bringing Sylar into dayshift at Damned. Annnnnd stuff.

...Also, I have never in all my years figured out a proper way to list video game remixes in the damn current music field. D:

Okay, serious bizness: I would really, really appreciate it if you guys helped out with a paper I'm doing for a class. What kind of paper? Well, it's for a Linguistic Anthropology course, and I'm looking at the internet (naturally) and what kinds of social cues, linguistic devices, and levels of interaction we have, etc., and what it reflects about its users. My angle is that people usually look at Facebook or MySpace when they talk about how the internet has changed the way people use language, but I'd like to look at the RP, LJ, and more-or-less well-spoken subculture on this side of the internet, possibly with an emphasis on fandom/RP depending on what kind of info I get. (You'll see what I mean in the questions.)

I'd say what my ideas are, but um, wanna wait until I get evidence and all that. 8D (Also, I know there's an intense statistical bias, considering where I'm posting this to, but since the paper is supposed to be in a half-research, half-observation ethnographic format, I think it's okay. Plus, I just need to get this done. D8)

ANYWAY! If you guys could please, please fill out this survey and reply here (comments are screened so you don't have to censor yourselves as much) I would LOVE YOU FOREVER! I'd offer something in return, but I dunno what to offer. THE FASTER I GET THIS PAPER DONE, THE FASTER I GET BACK TO RPING? 8D;;


Again, thank you sososososo much if you reply.

Oh, LJ, as much as I'd love to throw oodles of money at you, your poor business decisions continue to make it so very, very difficult. :( So back to six icons, BAAAW. My account always has the worst timing with running out.

In other news, I really need to finish that Sylar app. And um. I'm wondering whether I should try to sleep for a couple of hours before my class or just stay up the whole night and sleep after I return from my class. I think I'll sleep, since then I'll have to sleep less in the afternoon, which means more time in the evening to (possibly) hang out with an LA-returning Court!

Didn't get to play much Brawl today. BUT I THINK I WILL TOMORROW. I need to set up dates with you guys on the wifi~ <3 Also, I'm ttly downloading Star Fox 64 once I have a Gamecube controller and once my Wii accepts my credit card number as valid. D8

But yeah. Naptime now.

So latelatelate last night (technically this morning) I realized HO SHIT I HAVE FIGURE DRAWING TOMORROW/TODAY. D: So I went to bed, got up after four/five hours of sleep annnnd then when I was about to leave I realized I had no cash/proper brand credit card for parking. So I called my mom to see where she keeps her cash stash except she didn't answer and failed to respond to the message I left for over two hours and kjsdfhsl so I missed the last session of my figure drawing class. D: PRETTY PATHETIC, HUH? I NEED TO GET OFF MY ASS and get A JOB (and get over my fear of phones so I can do that ughughugh ;__;) OH WELL.

I made about a bajillion new icons, and by "bajillion" I mean... 8. What can I say, last night's episode was bad ass and (highlight for spoilers) I needed to comfort myself after that ending oh jesus ;___; I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE MY HORRIBLE PARANOID WEEK-LONG PREDICTION WAS COMPLETELY RIGHT whyyyy

SPEAKING OF THE END OF HEROES Court and I are FINALLY beginning to brainstorm our Supernatural/Heroes epic crossover YAAAAAY. We realize pretty much everything we come up with is going to be contradicted by what actually happens when it comes back, but then again, WHO KNOWS WHEN IT'S GOING TO COME BACK, RIGHT? oh man oh man still so excited about being into new and shiny things EVEN IF I'M A NEWB <333

And speaking of NEWB, I should get back to working on the djinnfic. I am determined to be PRODUCTIVEPRODUCTIVE. I hope.

Since a kind, kind Anonymous has gifted me with a paid account, I should make good use of it and do the voice meme everyone and their mother has posted! I realize I vowed to no longer directly support LJ financially, but it'd be in bad taste to not honor someone else's generosity, YEAH? D: In any case, no matter how much I might whine about being a PLEB, you kind, kind, people, don't worry about giving the gift of love paid time. <3 SINCE I TOTALLY APPRECIATE IT AND LOVE YOU FOR IT, DON'T GET ME WRONG <3333 but I feel bad in the end for going back on my word. D:

Voice posts are fun, right? You get to hear funny accents if your friends are from far, far away. All we really want is to hear your voice, we don't care what you're saying. So here's a list of typical meme questions that would otherwise be boring, but when communicated aloud - well, it's entertaining. Answer these questions in your post, and encourage others with voice-posting abilities to do the same.

1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What's the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

IT CUT ME OFF LIKE IT DID WITH COURT. ;[ So you guys don't get to hear my accent ramble. Oh, well. ALSO, MY READING WAS ALL MUFFLED, DUNNO WHY. I was muffled in general.

My Firefox is being really weird--not loading random images and making pages weirdly formatted and stuff. DUNNO WHY, though I'm certainly saddened that with only 6 icons and two new fandoms in my life, I keep on having to delete older ones and rotating in progressively newer ones. ;_; I FEEL LIKE A TRAITOR.

In other news, I'm all caught up with Heroes and I've got Court caught up to the end of S2 of Supernatural. WOOO.


Shocking, I know, but don't worry; we're still managing to have matching layouts and we're currently co-planning a Heroes/Supernatural crossover of EPIC proportions to right this horrible imbalance in the universe. IN FACT, it's actually made us excited for the upcoming hiatus of both shows, since it'll give us a chance to take all the info we have and turn it into a decently meshed plot. SO EVERYONE WINS.

On the fourth case of PW3. Omg... young... EVERYONE! (ALSO, I HAD TO DELETE TOASTERFACE. ::CRIES::)

Back from Palm Desert. I got a TON of new clothes and stuff from the outlets there; I'll finally stop looking like a little ragamuffin with ratty t-shirts! Also got a new laptop bag (since lord knows how much my laptop got knocked around in my old messenger bag) as well as a cute purple handbag thing for when I'm out and about.

WHILE I WAS THERE, I BEAT TWILIGHT PRINCESS. I was kinda in a rush, though, so I want to go back and do all the sidequests/heartpiece-getting I missed.

ALSO, I HAVE READ FOUR VOLUMES OF BLEACH. YOU HAPPY, [ profile] katsudon AND CO? I would read more now, except I am weirdly nauseous and tired from a lack of sleep and excessive staying awake these past couple of days, and I should get to bed early (for once).

Not having a paid account is proving to be more trouble than I had previously considered. DAMNZ.

.....IT WAS SO HARD OH GOD But I'm going to be strong and not contribute direct payments to LJ any longer. :[ The last post by them seems to be a step in the right direction, but given the confusion and miscommunication last time, whereupon they had made many of the same promises and broke them, I'll wait on renewing my paid account until the company puts their money where their mouth is. Honestly, it's not even the child porn issue that bugs me, as I can see the obvious issue in that (I'm into 20+ guy characters anyway and I've never really gotten the appeal of teenage boys) but what does bug me is the lack of respect LJ showed to the fandom community's concerns. They're doing much better now, but... ehh, we'll see.

In other news, I've been playing Twilight Princess. FUNFUNFUN. OH, AND HOW HAVE I BEEN PLAYING IT?


Seriously, all last winter break, I got up at seven in the morning to stand in line at the local EB and wait for Wiis. The one time they got them shipped in was the one time that we weren't first in line. And then the other day we go in for a completely different reason in the middle of the day and VOILÁ. WIIS.

Yanked from [ profile] murasakiiro.

When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

The old, the new, and the ugly. )


Annnnd that's about it for now even though I want to post more, because I need to get those excerpts out of my LJ-entry box and move on to semi-important matters. So!

In the same vein as [ profile] burningvigor's recent post, I have made a GreatestJournal (lacidiana, as usual), to keep track of friends and fandom that might move there. ADD ME PLZ. :D I don't plan on moving, but the fact that I back-posted everything from my LJ to my GJ and will from now on mirror my posts to both of them tells you just how peeved the current events have me.

From what I've read, I feel that though the porn-banhammer is a real pisser and that the "artistic-merit" standard is completely subjective and thus completely stupid, what bothers me the most is that they freely used said hammer when the ToS in regards to fanart was still very, very murky, and though they're publicly asking for tips on how to communicate better, their most recent post seemed more staunchly believing that they have done nothing wrong and unapologetic than anything else. (Not going to talk about child pornography stuff here since that's an understandably touchy subject and it seems like that wasn't even the issue in the first place; the porn factor was.) What further bothers me is that in that most recent and most infamous post in [ profile] lj_biz, the little disclaimer about written works seems to have the same murkiness as the fanart guidelines from last "Strikethrough."

"Written material -- fictional or not –- is also subject to Federal laws. But as we stated in a previous post, over the years we've looked at thousands of reported journals and communities and we rarely have come across a case of creative fiction or fanfic text that warrants review." Looked at critically, half of that statement is an empty recollection to what has happened in the past, not what will happen in the future or what the standards of "warranting review" actually are in regards to written works. Granted, fanfiction is far safer than fanart for the fact that it's easy to glance over a picture and make a quick--if arguable--judgment, while stamping a fanfiction as BAN'D would mean some poor sod on the LJ Abuse team might have to drudge through pages of sap to find flowery euphemisms of "member" and "manhood."

I'll stop now, since there have been plenty of rants on the subject, but my bottom line is this: LJ hasn't yet driven me out, but I--a member of five years, most of the time of which has been paid--will not be renewing my paid account when it runs out in 10 days, and I'll be downgrading to a basic account rather than a supported one when that time does come. I'll be keeping my character journals as supported, but since I block all the ads as is, I don't feel so bad about it. ;)

Still, going to make this one a basic. It's the principle of the matter! The only real issues I see are the lack of poll-making and the lack of userpics, but I can do polls at [ profile] damned_lounge with my character journals anyway, and with my loyalty userpics (hurrhurr), I'll have 20 in total.

...Going down to 20 after having 100+ for more months than I can count. God help my spoiled ass. T_T

And speaking of polls, here's one last one before my time expires! Not LJ-cut because I really want to know this stuff so I can keep track of all of you. D:

[Poll #1035509]

You know, last time, during the big "Strikethrough," I felt everyone was overreacting and it was one of those one-time things where every internet company has a big screw-up that they immediately apologize over and never repeat again. Whatever, fandom, you guys are crazy.

This time, though... yeah. D:

ETA: Because some of you probably still might not know what's going on, especially if you aren't heavily involved in fandom, here's what's happened to start all this:

The wank, the porn, and the LJ Abuse. )

Before it's past midnight--

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [ profile] loreamara!!! :DDDD

Man, I'm so bad about remembering birthdays, though. I keep on trying to set LJ to notify me through e-mail when your guys' birthdays are coming up, and I always forget/it doesn't work. =_=; I think I missed [ profile] elendraug's for that reason even though I was keeping an eye on it. T_T DID I? I'M SO CONFUSED.

In other news, I stayed up 'till 7 AM this morning playing Flyff and then reading apps (I wanted to get you Gundam people done! ::shakefist::) but since I figured I could sleep in and still have time to do some work for my screenwriting class at 7 PM, I figured I was okay.

....Except not, since my mom woke me up at 10:30 AM for a dentist's appointment at 12 DDDX Had Japanese food from my favorite restaurant after that and then got back home around 2 PM and PASSED OUT until I woke up again around 6:15 PM and it was time to leave for my class. XD;;; I figured "fuck it" and took a shower and got there a fashionable hour late. But whatev. I ain't taking it for a grade, and we were doing fun stuff today anyway.

Also, my paid icons ran out, and though it's tempting to just reupload my very favorites instead of re-buying the extra space (since I have 43 spaces left anyway).... but I know I won't. D: WELL, maybe I will since I'm broke, but... yeah. XDDDD's after midnight now since I was doing modstuff and forgot I hadn't posted this yet but WHUTEV I WROTE IT BEFORE THEN. <333
