[sticky post] How's Life?

Welcome to my journal! I'm more of a lurker than anything, so this welcome post is mainly for show (and because I felt obligated to make one on the off-chance I decide to post anything noteworthy.)

I have other accounts on other websites. Most of them are just as bare as this one.

So...yeah. That's about it.

Solitude

...



Both photos were taken with my crappy phone camera (and I'm not the best photographer by any means.) The one on top was taken in early April. The one on the bottom was taken today.

....Basically, I just realized how much I'm going to miss this place come September, when I leave for New York.

Dear Writer

Note: I'm a little early, but I kind of had this thing prepped ahead of time (once I discovered I could write a little message to the author who got stuck with my prompts.) Consider this an apology and an explanation.

Dear Writer,

  First of all…I'm sorry some of my prompts seemed kind of specific (or maybe I'm just being paranoid? I never wrote down the prompts I created and I was exhausted when I came up with them, so I don't remember everything. I mean, I know the general idea of my prompts, but not the "exact" prompt. And I may be forgetting one or two, which probably doesn't reassure you in the slightest.) Anyway,  I didn't really know what I was doing when I signed up for Summergen (I kind of panicked) and added random suggestions for genres when I prompted—again, I had no idea what I was doing and I'm kind of rambling at this point—so…yeah.  Ignore the genre stuff. You probably know what I mean.

  Anyway, really…be as creative as possible. I want to see what you make of the prompts, and what you're willing to do with them. I don't care how you take them. I'm just excited that someone gets to write for me. It's like Christmas in July.

Stuff I like…

  I'm a Sam girl (if only because it seems that everyone in the fandom hates him, and that makes me sad) but it pisses me off to no end when Dean is portrayed as a complete asshole for the sake of Sam. It's a point of contention for me having to witness Sam's character suffer a lot in most stories (YMMV about how he's treated in the show) when Dean is the "object-of-interest." Basically, please respect and love both brothers (and Castiel. My little sister is such a big fan of him; I'd feel bad if he was mistreated.)

  If you choose to write about one of the side-character prompts, neither Sam nor Dean have to be featured in the story. Minor characters can operate separately from the leads. They're cool enough.

I don't care which tense you write in. I'm usually not fond of 2nd person, but...meh. I've seen enough of them done right, and if it floats your boat, go right ahead.

  But…yeah. You can make the story AU, darkfic, deathfic, End!verse, post-apocalyptic, chock full of humor, some weird sort of crossover, hurt/comfort, fluff, sad, happy, etc (I only put in the stupid genres when I wrote the prompts because, again, I had no friggin' clue what I was doing.) I don't mind foul language, unless you completely overdo it.

  Feel free to be as gory, violent, and descriptive as you would like. :D I like that kind of stuff.

What I don't like...

  Character bashing (a given,) heavy sexual situations and/or non-con and rape (while this is gen challenge, I'm paranoid.) I'm not a big fan of cancer/sic fics, which I don't think is a problem here, but I feel the need to mention it.

   So…sorry if my prompts kind of sucked. And if this post didn't clear anything up for you. Since I've never gotten involved in Summergen (or anything quite like it) before, I kind of just want to see what happens.  I'm psyched, nervous, happy, and I feel like I'm gonna throw up, all at once.

  So…yeah…

So....

I just made it through Season 9 of Supernatural: the first season I've watched air live. My only coherent thought?

AUGH.

Voice Meme Thingy

tebtosca is having a Voice Meme thingy, and although I'm new and don't really use this except to read fic, I thought, Why not?

As a result, here is about eight-ish minutes of me rambling about stuff. I mean, it doesn't actually matter what I say because no one cares, but meh. Whatever. It's motion without actually moving. The illusion of progress. Deep stuff, obviously.
