"Shut up" is not in my vocabulary kthnx  
Welcome to your daily overdose of me.

If you read all of this, you are either very brave or very bored.

Possibly BOTH. O_O

This post was written over the course of almost the entire day, in bits and pieces. Hopefully I've edit-ironed out most of the usual bizarre mood fluctuations. XD

SO, today I read about five pages of Ulysses, with ample pauses for fic contemplation. (I really need to get back to work on "Getting Away." I just need to figure out where it's getting away to. :P)

Then I read the entirety of Reader's Digest.

Predictable? ME? 8D

Aaannd... I luffs my house. ^____^

I also luffed sitting next to my stepdad on the couch last night, writing porn with eltea, and sitting next to my mother this afternoon, filling my search history with things like "How to shoot up heroin" for about three hours. XD

IT'S FOR A FRIEND.

...who happens to be fictional... XD

This commercial amused me a great deal, because I am a simple being. XD

Um, iChat. Greatest program ever.

So I changed my IM icon for the first time in literally years, and then I started raving about "Dancing with the Stars," because ABC (not your ABC, Aussies, lol ilu Jenny XD) was rerunning last week's.

And then this happened:


I LOL'D. 8D

And now a meme. I wuz tag'd by chococoffeekiss, who rocks my world in general. 8D

Leave me a comment and...

1. I’ll respond with something random about you (probably an inside joke of some kind).
2. I’ll challenge you to do/try something.
3. I’ll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I’ll tell you something I like about you.
5. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of.
6. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wanted to ask you.
7. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.

...allow me to forewarn you that I suck at insightful questions, in support of which claim I would like to point you back to that five questions each bit we did last time. XD

1. I always think of you when MCR is on the radio. Or when I see a silverfish. Odd, yeah?

Totally inexplicable. 8D

2. I challenge you to either write us another R/S slashy fic, or to eat a churro without laughing.

I don't think I could ever do the latter, not that I'd want to. 8D So I guess we'll just have to settle for this crap, which I threw together this evening. XD Forgive me if they look a bit more like James and Paolo than they should. :P Or a little like Arthur and Merlin, even. Pretty much I just SUCK. XD

And it's The Cars because the Marauders listen to The Cars. This is my canon, because that is how "The Hour of the Wolf" was written back when I didn't do slash. It kills me now to reread it -- all those beautifully UST opportunities I wasted...! XD

3. Black--the color of your journal, lol.

AND THE COLOR OF MY SOUL. ;_________;

I actually have a lot of black in my wardrobe, more because shirts that I like tend to be black than because I tend to like black shirts. XD

4. You have a stellar sense of humour, and a vocabulary to match. If there was a person on this earth that could literally kill me with a witticism, it would be you.

You are toooo sweeeeeet, my dear. ^^;;

But, you know, don't plz.

Oh, all RIGHT. 8D

5. I dunno! You don't remind me of animals, just of anime. lol. Maybe a bird of some sort.

Hahaha. XD I'm trying to think what kind of bird I'd be (something that doesn't stfu, y/y? 8D). I always go with cat when asked. Plz to be letting me lie in the sun being petted all day. XD

6. What is your most priceless possesion?

eltea Umm... I want to say my computer, but it's not the machine, really, that's important; it's the heinous quantity of files I've amassed on it. XD Ditto for my iPod, which keeps me sane more often than it should have to. XD Most of the things I'm most careful with are really just a means to an end, though I tend to endow them with sentimental value. XD

Then I got tagged by jenwryn for a very different sort of meme. XD

It's Mello-y and delicious! XD With spoilers for icing. :P

01; Do you like this character?

You know, I actually didn't at first. :P But now I think he's probably the single most fascinating character in the entire series, psychologically speaking, on top of being fucking hot and so on and so forth. XD I think part of my problem was that Mello is pretty much sex personified, and the androgyny speaks to that, and it took me a little while to get accustomed to all of it.

Like a whole chapter or two. :P

I glommed onto Near first, is why, because he's more immediately like L, and I really, really wanted L back. XD

02; What name/s do you call this character?

Mello and Mel, mostly. It took me a few fics to get accustomed to "Mel," and I only ever let Matt do it. XD Mello-kun if it's TEIN L. 8D (Because not only Light should get honorifics; it would've sounded weird. :P) Eh, and Mihael obviously, though I try to use that one sparingly and to ideal effect, 'cause the names are so damn important in Death Note.

03; What image/colour do you associate with the character?

Red and black. And yellow. Pretty obvious, but hey. :P And electric blue -- even though I often make his eyes green; Mello is not green. XD And... fire, guns, scars, rosaries... I'm so deep. XD

04; What image-song do you associate with this character?

I have... a really long list, as it were, in my head, which I'm rapidly forgetting now that I'm called upon to generate them, but Fallen Leaves by Billy Talent (and Red Flag if you fancy), Paralyzer by Finger Eleven (first finished DN fic, anyone? 8D)... Thnks Fr Th Mmrs by Fall Out Boy was behind Recorded History... Definitely Riot, by Three Days Grace... The Bird and the Worm, by the Used, to some extent... You're Gonna Go Far, Kid by the Offspring is the entire basis for that "Far" fic I need to finish...

But the song that was written for Mello without the artist even presumably knowing Mello existed is Los Angeles, by Sugarcult. Like, holy hell. XD I definitely associate L.A. with Mello anyway, at a really deep, basic level. He is that city to me. Which I can say with a little bit of authority, because I've actually been there, more than once even. XD

And the Sick Puppies song All the Same is my Matt/Mello/Near music. ♥

05; What blood-type do you think this character is?

Could look it up for you; I wisely elected to bring #13 home with me. XD But idk, whichever the crazy-aggressive one is. :P It's funny, 'cause Mello's SUCH a girl, but he's also kind of an alpha male, or at least he thinks he is. XD

06; Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?

Matt/Mello is my OTP. Not in the unbreakable, kill-you-if-you-ship-otherwise-OTP way I see a lot, but... it's practically canon in my mind, and... if I put Matt and Mello in a room together, they're basically soul-bonded. There's never a question of that in my mind.

Probably because they're a lot like me and eltea in a lot of ways. 8D And that's kind of the way I write/love Light/L, too, when it's just this connection and understanding that transcends everything and everyone else around them. Those are the pairings that really work for me.

I also do Mello/Near, Mello/Light or Light/Mello or whatever the hell you like, and lately bits and pieces of L/Mello, even though that ship still doesn't entirely make sense in my mind and does funny things to my soul. For some reason I keep writing it anyway and finding it strangely fascinating. XD Ehh, and I, uh, may have started a fic about Mello and Matsuda once upon a time, which I someday intend to finish. :P Basically, Mello made me into an omnishipper, because anything that sexy should be shipped with everything that moves. XD

07; What would you want to say to this character?

...put the gun down. ...please?

I would also like to ask him why in the name of God he wants to kidnap Takada, which is the hole-iest of all plot devices in a rather Swiss arrangement. :P He has no motive. None. XD Like, NONE. XD He doesn't know what Near knows, so there is no reason for that to have happened except as a plot device to prevent Near from epic phailing liek whoa. :P It's all very silly, but oh well. XD

08; What do you want to do with this character:

Put it this way: Mello makes me understand the appeal of casual sex. XD

09; Please choose 5 friends with your choice of character. (Optional!!!)

Optional? GOOD. 8D

If you really desperately want to do it, ask, and I'll throw you a character. :) And let me know if you've already been tagged by someone else, so that I can pick a different one than they picked. :D

So this was my day... Life Vendor, where are you when I need you? XD

Aw, hell, it's Spring Break; I can do whatever I want, and apparently this is it. 8D

3. GREEN.
4. Does "everything" count as "something"?
5. Hmmm. You fall between cat and puppy in my mind. Tending often towards the latter. 8D
6. WHAT... IS THE AIRSPEED VELOCITY OF AN UNLADEN SWALLOW?

And... hmm, I think you should do L. :D

I've always wanted to try churros. Why do they make you laugh? XD

Matt/Mello is absolutely fabulous, uh huh. *nods firmly*

I totally get the laptop thing. If this thing died I'd... I'd die. :( THIS HAS MY LIFE ON IT. <3
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on March 23rd, 2009 03:52 am (UTC)
Personally, I love them, but the other day, chococoffeekiss was mentioning how over-doughy and, more importantly, incredibly phallic they are, and... now they make me laugh. :P

I'M JUST THAT MATURE. 8D

It makes my fangirl vry happy. :3

PRECISELY. Computers must be protected with lives. XD If my house was on fire, I would take the damn thing in a second. XD

Mmkay, lessee... XD

1. I KILLED YOUR NOT-BROTHER IN A FIC. XD
2. I challenge you to... write a single-sentence fic of a pairing you've never written. (If one still exists... 8D)
3. Generally a really rich, earthy kind of Australian red-brown. :D Lately, also pink, a.k.a. your aura color! ^^;
4. I love a looooot of things about you, clearly...!! ^^ Specifically, I love just how much you're willing to give to help others, and just how much love you have to give. ♥
5. Do I get shot if I say "kangaroo"? 8D No, not really. :P I'm going to have to go with a dog for this one -- not quite like Jack, but with his same sort of very clear capital-P Personality and bright curiousness. ^^
6. When exactly did your family first start going around in the caravan? What was that like to get used to? Details and so on? 8D

^^ ♥!
I MUST: Emily the Strangesabriel75 on March 22nd, 2009 01:43 pm (UTC)
Egh... will get back to you...

Life Vendor! Nice one... that's a lovely thought, isn't it or is it?

Yay! Spring Break for you. Mine's not until next week :) But you have fun and relax.

chococoffeekiss: Wolfchococoffeekiss on March 22nd, 2009 03:41 pm (UTC)
Ah, the Abe Lincoln Mountain Dew Commercial.I laughed so hard my ribs were sore.

And it's The Cars because the Marauders listen to The Cars.

Yes, yes they do. And they can listen with us anytime.
I liked the fic, it was perfect perfect perfect and Sirius was hot and Remus was bookish and adorably funny and I love you.

3. Black--the color of your journal, lol.

AND THE COLOR OF MY SOUL. ;_________;


Totally set that one up for you! And I am not disappointed! XD

You'd make a good cat, I'd keep you. But you'd have to be an inside cat, because Boy has run over the outside cats several times. And they still ALLOW HIM TO LIVE which is what's so surprising.

Hmm, I'm the same way about my computer. And my iPod. People wonder when the headphones will grow to my head.

AH! I'll do your character meme. Give me a good one!

Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on March 23rd, 2009 04:06 am (UTC)
I stared for a second and then totally busted up. XD

YAY!! ^^ I had fun with it; library slash plz. >3

Hahahaha, we understand each other! 8D

I'd probably be way too lazy to be an outside cat, so that would probably work out fine! XD Boy must be very charismatic indeed. :P Or maybe they can tell that he's secretly a werewolf. :O

I've worn out about a billion pairs of headphones over the years... XD They are necessary for survival! XD

Oooh, lessee... Well, the amazingly obvious choice is Remus, but I think he's amazingly obvious because he's the RIGHT choice. 8D

Plus I'd like to know what you'd ask him. :D

I never get tired of you, luv.

I love those commercials, too.XD
Send me one of these things!!


Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on March 23rd, 2009 04:10 am (UTC)
Aww, I'm glad!! ^^ ♥

Good commercials are like free awesome. And make waiting for your show to start again suck way less. XD

Which meme would you prefer -- or both? :D

Oh the things we google for fic. How to shoot heroin, the chemical properties of potassium, what badly burned corpses really look like... *cough*

Anything involving Lincoln is funny to me. I think our next 10 hour film fest entry is gonna be a horror piece about Evil Lincoln. *gigglesnarfs*

I wanna do the second meme~! 8D (I'd do the first too if you wanted, but you prolly don't know me well enough to come up with much. >_>;)
Vitamin C: Matt - Bangtierfal on March 23rd, 2009 04:16 am (UTC)
I look up guns a lot. And car models. XD

...am I right in assuming that "10 hour film fest" means that you have to make the film in ten hours? :O

lol, I can make it up! XD

1. Fucking people who can't write movies for shit. XD
2. Umm, I think you should draw the people in your novel, or a couple of them. If you haven't. And you don't have to show us or anything; just for fun! :D
3. Kind of a peachy-yellow, lamely enough on my part, because of the color of your journal and the focal points of your default icon. XD
4. I really admire your dedication to projects big, small, school-y, and fiction-y. :D
5. I'm thinking cat. ^^
6. What got you into computer science? Do you identify yourself, personally, more as a computer scientist or as a writer? (Jesus, I sound like that paper I wrote for my American Cultures class. XD)

Aaaand... Matt. ^^ Obvious, but hey. XD

I MUSTsabriel75 on March 22nd, 2009 06:15 pm (UTC)
So I'll do both memes... character please?

And must I post the meme to get you to respond or how does this work? The first one, seven questions... want to do it, but you'll have talk me through it. I haven't the brain power to work out what exactly needs to be done :)

Spring Break, where o where art thou?!
Vitamin C: Matsudatierfal on March 23rd, 2009 04:25 am (UTC)
I'd like to hear your thoughts on Near! :D

Basically I just reply seven things that correspond to the meme rules, and then you post them and elaborate on them/answer them/whatever. ^^ Soooo... 8D

1. Your kitty is adorable! ^^ (Random and TRUE! XD)
2. I challenge you... to try, with no penalties, to do something I know I can't, which is to go through an entire day doing your very best not to second-guess anything. :)
3. Dark blue and dark green... Ocean-y colors, I think. ^^ The amazing hell-in-a-handbasket icon I've been staring at didn't hurt either. XD
4. I love how down-to-earth you are. I can always count on you to understand where I'm coming from and give me really rock-solid, practical advice. :)
5. Definitely a cat. :D
6. Where did you grow up? If it wasn't where you are now (no friend lock on this post = ambiguity XD), what made you decide to raise your family there? :)

Spring Break is an elusive being! XD

CHAMYL!: Mello x Nearchamyl on March 22nd, 2009 11:21 pm (UTC)
If you write your posts during the day, you could try Semagic! It's a cool little program that runs in the bg of the pc, so if you suddenly like, remember something you want to write, you just click on the little icon and write- and that explains the randomness of my posts XD

Also
Probably because they're a lot like me and eltea in a lot of ways. 8D
Are you kidding I totally ship Tierfallina/Eltea!!! :D

HE KIDNAPS TAKADA because he wants to save Near!!!
/in my head
No seriously, in the italian translation of Death Note, he talks with Halle and says "So he [Near] is going to have his name written in the Death Note? Then only I can do it" --something like that.
WE HAVE CANON MELLONEAR; WHAT? :DDD
Vitamin C: Neartierfal on March 23rd, 2009 04:30 am (UTC)
Oooh! That'd probably be more fun that the little WordPad document I was using! XD

MY OTP. ♥ 8D

Well, that's how it's played, and I like that a lot!, but... it doesn't make sense. XD Why not just tell Near what he knows -- or tell Halle and get her to tell Near? Mello doesn't like teamwork, but I think he likes it better than DEATH. XD And just... what does he stand to gain from kidnapping Takada? How does that prevent anybody from writing Near's name down? XD I don't get it.... XD

I definitely take the "Dear Mello" on the picture to be canon Mello/Near, though, >3

Vitamin C: Matsudatierfal on March 24th, 2009 01:21 am (UTC)

Sure! ^^

1. THE CHEESE BOAT PLZ?
2. I challenge you... to sail the Pacific on a cheese boat to write something -- anything -- shortish. Just to sit down and go until it's done. :D
3. BLUE. :D Because you wear it a lot, your eyes are, sapphire is your birthstone, etc. ^^
4. You're incredibly easy to talk to about pretty much everything. ♥
5. Definitely a dog! :D
6. When/why did you decided that biology was What You Wanted to Do? :)

Aaand... tell me about Matsuda! :D
