That's at London Film and Comic Con 2007. Like I said, Milo Ventimiglia really is tiny. And they were there for Heroes, I think, which is why Adrian Pasdar is in the picture. Who is also not a giant, like, he totally looks taller on TV? I mean, I'm 1.72m which is like . . . 5'8"-ish according to Google? Just to give you an idea. BUT ANYWAY from a less height-obsessed perspective, yes, I have photographic evidence that I did indeed meet Jess from Gilmore Girls. \o/ (Also, I totally forgot that I used to wear contacts nine years ago. Huh.)

Ugh I want to go to another convention. That one was so much fun, I can't believe that was almost a decade ago? We also saw Nana Visitor and hung out with the Wraith Queen from Stargate Atlantis! Ahh, yes. Good times! :)

I just feel the need to leave *hugs* here. Big queer hugs, and the hope that maybe one day all our differences will do is make us eager to learn from each other. What a beautiful world that would be.

I hope you're all doing okay. <3 Let's all keep making beautiful things and spreading love.

I forgot how much I hate listening to recordings of my own voice. I made myself listen to the Todaydreambelievers Glee podcast I did and OMG that is NOT how I usually sound like I DO NOT ALWAYS SOUND LIKE I HAVE A COLD and I also don't always sound like a complete moron and okay yes the accent is real, I do have a horrible German accent. Good thing I signed up for like three more of those, haha. I am looking forward to recording them, but HOLY CRAP what is my voice. But I don't get many chances to *speak* English so YAY I'm not going to pass up this opportunity!

On a less awkward topic, I hope you're all having a good weekend!

writing. My side characters are trying to take over the story. I can't pin down my two main characters at all - I'm not quite sure why. But this is annoying. Especially since I'm almost 20k into the story. Another 30-40k and I should have finished the first draft. And I still don't really know who they are. I have four side characters who I can see quite clearly in my mind. But the two main characters - nope.

writing II. I'm considering signing up for the Check, Please! Big Bang. Somebody talk me out of this. But it's only 10k and I love big bangs and IT'S ONLY 10K and oh who am I kidding of course I'm signing up. Maybe.

reading. How soon after finishing a book series is too soon to reread? I mean, I am a rereader. I reread things. But I still have a massive TBR pile to get through and ugh idk HOW SOON IS TOO SOON.

and also. Do you ever remember really old arguments and still get inexplicably angry because YOU WERE RIGHT DAMMIT.
. . . I need a cup of coffee.

Also I can't believe it's only Thursday. How much longer until the weekend???

I found a really old fic in my drafts folder; a bounty hunter AU I never finished apparently. It's already over 30k and I'm really thinking about finishing it. Here's an excerpt because it's actually not as bad as I thought and I was kind of amused by this.

Idk man, I really kind of do want to finish this stupid thing, but there are still some pretty big gaps in the plot. Also I suck at writing crime stuff. I'd have to find a brainstorming buddy. But I'm really really tempted to actually work on this again.

Sometimes I wish Tumblr had a way to turn off Likes for specific posts. Or that there was a "Bookmark" button and a "Like" button.

I don't want Likes on my fic. I seriously just don't want them. What the fuck does a Like tell me? NOTHING, that's what. Did you Like it because you're saving it for later? Did you Like it because you thought it was good? But not quite good enough to reblog?

Idk man. Tumblr is moving so fucking fast, people who create things kind of rely on reblogs for their stuff to get it seen at all. If nobody reblogs, things just get lost in the flood of posts. And especially for writers and artists who spent hours/days/weeks/months working on their stuff, that can really suck.

And yeah, this has been brought on by my last fic getting barely any reblogs other than my own. Doesn't make it any less true.

I know I haven't always been very good about reblogging either. I also sometimes put stuff in my Likes to read later and then I don't have time to go back to it until much, much later. But maybe that's a thing to work on.

No idea why I'm even posting this to LJ. Completely wrong platform. I know. I just kind of need to think out loud here and get out some of my frustration at the same time.

Okay, time to go be frustrated somewhere else. I'm ready for this week to be over, honestly.

I'm working on an actual post with actual Things to talk about, but right now Things are still kind of weird so in the meantime some happy things because we all need those:

1.) Klaine people: check out this shiny new fic blog! There's gonna be old fic and new fic and you can become a member and reblog WHATEVER YOU WANT YAY (well, not whatever - I mean, it's a Klaine fic blog, so maybe no crochet patterns and/or beer tasting reviews), and there are gonna be events and challenges and it's gonna be fun.

2.) Everyone: if you're not reading this webcomic (Check, Please!) you're doing it wrong because it's the most adorable thing EVER and I did not even want to get sucked into a new fandom but here I am having SO MANY FEELINGS and basically it's the Best Thing Ever and a source for much happiness that has significantly brightened the past days for me.

I hope you're all having a good weekend and I'm hugging all of your faces and I'm gonna be around more again soon-ish, I promise! <3

I'm back home but I might not be around much for a little while longer because my grandmother died this morning.

Hugs for everyone!

Just a quick update to say I have decided that I like being on holiday. I'm getting so much reading done! And walking. We're lucky with the weather so far.

Photographic evidenceCollapse )

I'll probably be hanging out on Twitter and Instagram the next few weeks (in case anyone wants to be friends over there).

Okay, I have to go do some more walking now. Hope you're all having a nice week!
