The Sticky Introduction
Instead of being organized and having two separate journals for 'real life' and 'fandom life' I've only got this one. This means, essentially, that all of my real-life posts (of which there are few) are friends-locked, and all the fandom posts are public. I'm sporadic and inconsistent with these things, and I have no idea whether that will ever change. I'm unfortunately the same way with people I can talk to face to face >.>
It's something I'm trying to work on.

My fandoms include, but are not limited to: Doctor Who, Heroes, Life on Mars, Band of Brothers, Life, Dexter, Prince of Tennis, Merlin, Stargate Atlantis, Dead Like Me, Dragon Age 2 and all things Terry Pratchett. I've been known to occasionally revisit Harry Potter and Gundam Wing, and I read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy novels. I'm also interested in Cross-cultural studies (especially with Western and Eastern cultures), Japanese, Anthropology, History, Writing, Marketing, Graphic Design, herbalism, sustainability, food and travel.

Feel free to friend me (because I love making new friends), but I probably won't friend you back unless you've commented somewhere on here or I have some other reason to know who you are :D (this means "I like talking to the people I friend. I like talking to people in general. Can we chat?")

I have committed fanart...
And it`s fic-fanart :D

If any who fans out there haven`t yet read earlgreytea68 `s Chaosverse, then you should. It`s wonderful, the characterizations are gorgeous, and the stories themselves are warm and happy-inducing (if I can make up a word). This bit of drawing was inspired by the story "The Girl Scout Guide to Saving the Universe". My drawing skills are extremely rusty and it has literally been years since I tried to draw people, but I gave it a shot anyway.

Many thanks to studyofrunning and kahtyasofia for encouragement and beta-skills.

It was possible that introducing him to the open bar had been a mistake.Collapse )

Written for
:[info]apckrfan in the rare_heroes Sekrit Santa Exchange, with the prompts: 1) Would love to see why Sandra's still loyal to Noah and standing by him after finding out he'd altered her memories for a long while.  2) They clearly care for one another, I'd like to see that come through even if it's a gen fic.  3) And well, what would a fic involving Sandra be without involving Mr. Muggles.
Heroes and all its characters belong to Tim Kring, NBC, and their affiliates.

Possibly the best website ever:
So, it's been a really long time (again). But school ate my life and I really haven't had much to say that wasn't complaints about professors and classes. But! the semester is almost over and I've started writing again, so this journal is not dead yet ^^. In fact I'll probably be posting some recs in the next few days, but for now I just have one thing to say.

You should go to this website, and practice your vocabulary.

This is a website dedicated to ending world hunger: for every word you get right, it donates 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. Not only is this a fantastic cause, but it's fun too ^^.  And slightly addictive, last night, I got up to 2,000. It's a simple way to make the world just a little bit better in your free time, and they have some really interesting words too!  :D

41 Heroes Icons

A lot of image repeats- I was mostly experimenting with different tools and spacings. Six pictures for 41 icons. I need to do something more productive.
