Character Expression Icon Meme )

Man, that was harder than I thought it would be, XD. So many expressive icons to love~! ...I wish I had another hundred spaces to use. u_u Also, nothing I do seems to get rid of that damn white space above the icon table. >:\

On a slightly different note.

Wow, I haven't put anything up here in a while. Anyway, here are some RP memes that I've seen around everywhere, because my online life basically consists of RP these days. I always, ALWAYS tl;dr on memes, so this is insanely long, but it was fun to do, a great procrastination tool at 2:00 AM last night, and hopefully it's at least a little interesting to someone, so uh. Yeah, sorry, haha.

I walked home from class in the rain and cold today. Most of the sky—certainly the part dripping sullenly on me—was ash gray, with charcoal whorls that seemed inclined to just sit in place; heavy, unmoving, implacable. But off to the west, the clouds abruptly lightened and faded in trailing white tails, leaving much of the sky visible from beneath my black umbrella a pure, arching blue.

It was beautiful. :)

Of course, my enchantment with it might have had something to do with the fact that I'd not seen blue sky in three or four days, which is downright traumatic for a born and bred southern Californian. Especially when one is still in California, albeit the northern half.

...Now, in return for tolerating my rambling, have a little Ace drabble. :D

Title: Name
Pairing/Characters: Ace, mentions of Dadan, Garp, and Luffy
Word Count: 469

Ah, thank you so much for the gift, [livejournal.com profile] fashi0n_mistake!!

...I just typed out this HUUUUGE, point by point reaction post to One Piece Chapter 0, and this week's White Collar, and Glee, and then accidentally went to another page and it was GONE. X_____X. ASKJL;LDK.

I'm not doing that all over again, DAMMITALL, SO. Highlights.

Goddammit, Maine. Not you, too! You're in New England, ffs!

God, I had such high hopes since it was passed by the legislature and a Catholic governor...Why is my country just slightly more than halfway filled with bigots who want to stick their nose in everyone else's business and champion inequality and stomp on love?


...Still think we're going to get over this eventually, everywhere. Just have to look at the trends and outlook of the young generations to see how it's going to be in the future. But that's too far away, dammit, people should stop being stupid now. (massive tantrum of heartbreak and reaction to injustice)

Title: Tied
Characters: Marco, Ace, Whitebeard Pirates (gen)
Word Count: 1072
A/N: Set after my ficlets Worth It and Ours that I posted to [info]onepiece_300, but I think it could be read without knowing them. They're very short, though! :D Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] one_piece, because this one got too long, >_>. Crap, does this mean this is a 'verse, now? Probably too short for that, but...Nuisance-verse, I guess?

It was only understandable, after that whole hellish mess. )

Title: Captain, My Captain

(Rayleigh sat down with a hard thump.)

Holy crap, that's two drabbles that I really actually like in one night. 0_0
zhadrani: (smiley ace)
Um, all non-One Piece folks, ignore meeeeeee.

So, apparently I'm writing fic(lets) in the One Piece fandom. >_> This feels strange after 7+ years of fic-abstinence, but I'm going with it for now. I wanted to keep track of them on my own journal, so APOLOGIES for the repeats and cross-posting if you've friended both me and the challenge comms I've posted to.

Title: Worth It

("What's with all the abuse?")

Title: Round and Round, Four Seasons Bound
Word Count: 300
Pairing: ZoSan
Notes: Prompt: Season. Ugh, ugh, ugh, it was harder and took longer to cut this down to 300 words than it did to write it out. Thanks for the help with edits, Tony! Sorry for the pretentious title, I suck at titles, >_>. Rated G, cross-posted to [info]onepieceyaoi100.

(That was when Zoro finally caught a clue.)

Y'know, I really liked the pilot ep way back, but the second one bored me and I stopped watching. In a fit of crazed procrastination I caught up recently, and I kinda...well, it's kinda entertaining, XD.

NOT the parts that most people seem to like, though. I mean, I don't know what everybody else is smoking, but I find pretty much all of the main (white, straight, able-bodied) characters boring as hell and/or complete assholes. Um, yeah, even the vaunted Mr. Schu, I think he's a fucking jerk for continuing to lead Emma on, and despite good intentions he screws up a lot with the Glee kids. Finn, Quinn, Rachel, Puck, Terri, all no-goes for me. Pretty much the only "main" characters I like are Emma--guh, Jayma Mays with the Bambi eyes and red bob and germ phobia, she is adorable--and Sue Sylvester, Jane Lynch is freaking hilarious in her utter evil.

But...but the side characters are awesome. I mean, my favorite of the whole bunch is the precious, dorktastic, "Other Asian" pop'n'lockin' football player Mike Chang, who has so far had one line and some kickass dance solos, and whose every scene I have re-watched far too many times (HOTTEST CHARACTER ON THE SHOW, ZOMG).

But all of those crazy side-characters are great, from Asian Tina (whose stutter is totally not believable, LOL) with the gorgeous voice and far too little screentime to Artie with his guitar and his one-liners (and much better voice than Finn, haha), to Mercedes with her take-no-shit attitude and adorable relationship with Kurt and rockin' pipes, to Kurt himself, that brave, adorable, fabulous boy, even through Matt Rutherford (still no lines?!), Santana Lopez, and Brittany.

Man, I think it's that I didn't really do the whole high school angst and drama thing when I was in high school, I just had a really tight, diverse group of friends that had a blast, and I think that the side-characters could be that kind of awesome group of friends. I would totally watch an entire show devoted to those friends and their glee-club shenanigans! I REALLY hope we get to see more of them, later, and they get better development!!

Otherwise I will be continuing to fast-forward through a lot of this show. >_>

...OK, so some of the musical numbers are awesome. I repeat, some! More than a few suck. But the ones that are awesome...whoa, mindblowing! 0_0 Kristin Chenoweth ep for the musical win! \o/

With the blinds down, the rush of wind and rain outside sounds amazingly like ocean waves thrumming. How nostalgic, and surprisingly soothing, considering that I was biking around in that torrent not a half hour ago.

I have no words. I just wanted to jot my initial reaction down quick before I check my flist and other people's reactions inevitably harsh my squee, but SPN 5x04 )

More coherent thoughts later, maybe.

Had alcohol for the first time tonight. Legally, since it's six months past my 21st birthday, because I am such a straight-laced white hat on the issue. Just a half a glass of champagne, which was both better and worse than I thought it would be. Didn't taste particularly good (no surprise), but I finally understand the phraseology I've always heard/read used with regard to alcohol--that it goes down warm. Because it does, even though the bottle was cold, and isn't that an odd sensation to feel down your throat. Friend remarked that this was why she ended up drinking vodka at 6 AM in the freezing morning in Russia this past year, XD.

I think the resulting good feeling and ease of conversation was due to good company and fun circumstances, and perhaps the placebo effect, because I don't think even a first-timer like me can be much affected by half a glass of champagne, but all around it was a very enjoyable night.

On Supernatural 5x03, I could say more, but I'll (try to) be brief.

SPN 5x03! )

This is a fanart image by [livejournal.com profile] aesc that I fell in love with right after seeing it, and which has been my desktop image ever since. I love the wings, and the quote! "Draw me from the pit of destruction, that I go not down to hell." I'm multifandom and I collect pretty images, so I usually bounce between backgrounds and fandoms a lot, but this one has stuck with me for quite a while.
