      Well then. I'm back, kinda. Ish. Mostly on tumblr nowadays.

      I've been thinking about this place a lot lately. In February I'll have been a member here for 10 years. Holy shit. That's...kind of amazing to me. I remember very clearly (for a given value of clearly, what with human memory being what it is) when I first watched RvB. I mean, my signup date is, quite clearly, Feb. 15, 2005. That's crazy to me.

      It's been on and off here a lot over the last few years. Real life is crazy and I've moved from the US to Sweden to the US and now back to Sweden again, hopefully for the last time. I have a big girl job. We're saving up for a house. Thinking about starting a family soon. It's great. I think I'm going to be lingering and lurking around here a bit more, whenever I can. Not the constant thing it was when I was in college, but whatever I can get. Maybe try and get back into the community a bit more. That'd be fun.

      Um. I haven't ever really stopped writing, if anyone's interested in taking a look. Working on RvB giftfic for a friend right now - I got her to watch the show and now she's just as lost on it as I am. :D

      Thanks to those of you who haven't unfriended me over the years of inactivity. I'm going to keep listening to the new soundtrack and maybe get some work done. <3

    • A challenge

      7 years ago

      Artemischan

      My husband issued me a challenge last night: to write a Red vs. Blue children's book.

      This evolved out of a discussion on how fandom is frightening, I'm passively supporting it by reading fanfics, and that I should get a children's book published (based on the fact that I work with kids and have apparently read every kids' book under the sun, supported by my reciting Chicka Chicka Boom Boom from memory with no visual cues).

      So, I'm gonna give this a shot. I just need some ideas for what stories to take from RvB and turn into something more kid-friendly. I have confidence in my ability to make it kid-friendly, don't worry about that. So, thoughts?



      Maybe I'll eventually compile this into something with screenshots, since I'm no artist.

    • Please tell me it's not my fault

      7 years ago

      Artemischan

      So, I've been reading the TVTropes pages for RvB, and on the character sheet for Simmons it says this:

      Vitriolic Best Buds: With Grif.
      According to Rooster Teeth, they're more than just Vitriolic Best Buds. No. Seriously. There was a question at a panel with RT where they got asked what Grif and Simmons were doing in the shade for two hours. Apparently, they'd read a slash fanfic earlier. And they called back a reference to that. So.. take that how you will.


      Umm...I think I wrote that fic. Like, 6 years ago. And posted it on this very site, on this very journal. I titled it "I Can Tell You What We Weren't Doing", and it was the first and only Grif/Simmons fic I've ever written. Can anyone verify the info on the TVTropes page? Is this what really happened? And was it my fic? I'm just afraid to ask any of them straight up.

      Have utterly caught up on everything I can, in prep for Season 10. I'm sad I wasn't part of it all for the actual release, but hey! Now that RoosterTumblr has invaded my life, odds are that I'm not going to get out of it any time soon. :)

      Holy crap, I'm back. I've signed in for the first time in waaaaaay too long. Just letting you all know that I'm alive and well and still horribly behind on RvB. Will endeavor to catch up soon. :)

      Guess who's 24 today? It's a scary thought.

      Some news, otherwise:

      -Failed the speaking portion of my Swedish test, so I'll have to retake that come May.
      -Moved into a new apartment, right in the student/immigrant section of town by the university.
      -Burned my arm on the oven last night.
      -Looking more likely that we'll be moving back stateside this summer.

      And now, I'm off to exercise! smiley0.gif

    • The Wedding Dress

      9 years ago

      Artemischan

      Okay, so the story of my dress. The day before I was to leave the States (this is the 28th for those keeping track), I went out with my sister H and my good friend L (the one whose wedding I went back to be maid-of-honor in) to go browsing for wedding dresses. We went up to the store where L had bought her dress, though it was a different bridal boutique at the time.

      The ladies in there were very nice and let us browse through the dresses ourselves. I'd told H and L what I was thinking of, and we pulled 4 dresses for me to try on. Dress number 3 was the one. It's a sample dress, so I got to take it home with me, and it's too long and big in the bust, but otherwise, it's great. Originally priced at $1060, I bought it with a price tag (including tax) of $138, of which H and L helped me pay $90. I wasn't planning on buying a dress, and they're fabulous for it!

      The dress is back at my parents' house in PA. There was no way I was going to be able to take it with me on the plane.

      Wow, I go forever without posting here. Hmm...

      Fun things:

      -Went back to the States for 6 weeks over the holidays. It was quite fun!

      -Was maid-of-honor in my friend's wedding while I was home. I got to ride on the back of a fire engine to the reception.

      -I bought a wedding dress! The full story of it is amazing.

    • Not what I was expecting to see

      9 years ago

      Artemischan

      So, on Tuesday I had an "auskultation," where I go and sit in on a class that's taught in Swedish and take notes and write a report on what happened, to show how much I understand. Well, I was at one (Children's Lit in Swedish) with my friend Maria when we got our usual 15 minute break in the middle of class. (As a side note, classes are usually 2 hours long, but you start 15 minutes after the listed start time and you get a 15 minute break in the middle, so you only sit for about 45 minute stretches.) So Maria and I headed over to the convenience store-type shop in the next building so that she couldget a hot chocolate.

      As we walked in, I saw a group of Swedish students standing over by the other door. Now, I wouldn't have noticed anything odd, but one guy's shirt caught my eye. It was the "That's right. I'm a gay robot." shirt! I know I couldn't stop staring at him, but of course he didn't notice me. Still, it was amusing. smiley0.gif

    • Happy time?

      9 years ago

      Artemischan

      I really, really need some time to just sit back and watch a ridiculously happy movie (i.e. Enchanted or Mamma Mia!) and not think about everything I have going on right now. Between the spex, school, and my now TWO jobs, I'm gonna break down. I almost did last night.

      Happy thoughts?

      We're both very elusive these days, ha ha... I've missed you as well, old friend. :] Hopefully I can get in touch with you on Tumblr, as I see you've left your name in your latest journal entry, but by chance that doesn't pan out and you return some day, I'll drop my contact information here, that way we definitely lose track of one another again. ^_^

      Facebook: www.facebook.com/daniel.melchiorre.7 (I only check this once in a blue moon, so it's the dark sheep of how I'd be at all contacted)

      Hopefully that does the trick! Glad to hear you're still writing as well, I remember we used to have a lot of discussions since we were both into writing, way back when- and still are now for that matter of fact. :]

      Yeah, the interactions are amazing. Germany and Italy have some of the best interactions along with America and England.

      I wish it would come out in America like whoa. Yeah, I think I saw some fanart of Sweden, Finland, and Switzerland or something. That's what got me into it.

      And I totally love Germany. I don't know why--just do.
