Art and Angst and Art-Angst  
This icon always distracts me... I end up watching it a bunch of times.

Today I (think I) kicked the mythology test's sorry, lined-papered butt halfway to Hades.  I also participated in the discussion of Frankenstein, which I haven't finished reading.  I now need to write an essay on it, or perhaps a Romantic poet in our reader.  I mostly just want to write "No hable inglés" on a piece of paper and turn it in, but in addition to dooming my grade, that would be highly offensive, as my TA is Hispanic.

Damn.

So everything went well until last night's two-in-the-morning bedtime, complete with lots of tossing and turning afterwards, caught up with me, and then I got all emo, per my tiredness pattern.  I've been so emo over the last month or two that I expect my wrists to start bleeding spontaneously.  Fer serious.  I need to get myself a My Chemical Romance T-shirt and move along.  (Amusingly/incidentally, [info]eltea went to an MCR concert last night with her brother.  Apparently it was pretty sweet.)  I will not, however, be dying my hair black.  As I discovered in a Photoshop project or two last year, I would look like hell warmed over with black hair.  Must be the pale-as-death complexion.  And the freckles.

Emo is the new awesome.

Or not.

I have been Audioslavering a lot lately, which may be why I staved off the Emo Tides of Crimson Doom until today.  I happened upon the revelation that Audioslave actually has some really interesting lyrics on top of the extremely tortured guitars.  I hadn't really noticed that for whatever reason...

I should be hearts-stars-and-horseshoes happy; it's frigging FRIDAY.  But I have chocolate milk now, so it's getting better.

Anyhoo, I lied to you.

Not to you guys in particular, but to everyone who has clicked on my FF.net profile lately.  Because, you see, I claimed that I was going on hiatus.

Much of the reason is Script Frenzy.  I actually got eleven and a half pages in by Tuesday, and since I need 3.333 pages a day, I'm still breaking even.  And I thought of a little bit of stuff on my way to dinner, as I just recalled.  It's coming along pretty well, though I don't think I've hit a vein of Oscar gold here.  Though given what they're givin' out Oscars for nowadays...

/editorial

Anyway, I said I was going on hiatus, then promptly went back to work on an emo Lupin/Tonks fic I started like a week ago, and then proceeded yesterday to commence work on an emo Draco/Hermione fic.

Are we seeing a pattern here?

Probably doesn't help my Emo Problem that I was looking at more fantasmic slash fanart today, and that last night/this morning and today, [info]eltea and I have been writing another of many, many, many Matt and Brian scenes.  There's so much viable emotion in that stuff.  I don't know what it is.  The built-in social tension fascinates me, as does the potential, depending on the character and the situation, for doubt, for denial, and for venomous self-loathing.  It's so rich and complex and beautiful and heartbreaking and amazing, and I am addicted to the vast emotional possibilities of it.

On a different subject altogether, you know what I hate?  I hate people who favorite something, and then, when I click on their profile, they proclaim that they've joined that Review Revolution.  Nice policy.  Wonderful idea.  The specimen of FF.net denizen that I encountered today even posted the pledge in a bunch of her stories.  Lovely concept.

Yeah, she didn't review.

Hypocrisy is annoying as hell.

*drowns self in chocolate milk, weeping crimson tears encapsulating the midnight mist of misery*

Huh, this actually woke me up a little, which bodes well for my mood.  Plus my roommate's often gone doing Bible study-ish things until midnight on Fridays.  FTW.  \o/

That icon distracts me too...

I wrote an essay on Frankenstein last term. It was eight pages and written under the effects of vertigo and motion sickness medicine. Write something about original sin and feminism--your teacher will probably love it.

Original sin is pretty much always a winner, especially here... we def discussed it in class and stuff. Feminism is also always promising. :O

On the remote off-chance that I read the remaining hundred and fifty pages, I might just have to do that. ^_^ Otherwise, it'll be Wordsworth all the way. Though I think I can write on Frankie for the final paper as well, when that sucker rolls around...

That icon kicks BUTT! I love chocolate milk...maybe I'll go get me some now...

I'm glad the script isn't eating you alive and that you are keeping afloat...those things can be scary.

I'm uber happy that I review your story every chapter, of course the review might not have anything to do with the story, but I review!

The chocolate milk improved my mood so fast I think it should be illegal. O_o

In the throes of my vast brilliance, I managed to forget to write the snippet I'd thought of last night. But I'm pretty sure I remember how it went...

Reviews bring joy to my soul, and yours rock in particular. ^_^
