Gas Mask Nun

[sticky post] Hello again, and for some of you, goodbye.

Six years have passed, and I just remembered I have a livejournal when I was directed to an active community on here. I was shocked that livejournal is still semi-active in 2016. I guess I'm back then.

For anyone on my friend list who gets notified of this post: Now is the time to unfriend or block or whatever if you don't want to be notified of any updates I make. All of you are long-inactive, but I don't know if LJ still sends you the occasional email, so if you get notified of this: "Hi, I'm using this account again. React accordingly. I hope you're having a good day, and that you have a nice life too."

I wonder how long it will take for me to forget about this site again.

(no subject)

First Fanart in years. I watched a few episodes of Chromartie High School today, and was struck by the urge to draw my favorite wiggly-haired delinquent.

Just a sketch right now. I'll ink it later.

Once upon a time, there was a character named Archer (who was an existing character in disguise for a portion of the story).
My co-creator at the time thought it best not to include her in our plot, so I repurposed her and sent her off to become Tom in K.o.a.D., where she was made into a boy to prevent similarities to one of my co-creator's characters.

Now that I'm on my own, and have a rewrite of the original story (tentatively titled "Owl Coffee")underway, Archer is allowed back to her ancestral universe.
(I just need to work out a change of Tom's last name, or deal with having two red-heads named Archer)
And she's gained a main role! So I've been thinking about her, and wound up doing two drawings involving her.

Good lord, it's art!

I deign to call this a sketch blog, but post nothing of the sort here.

That changes now.


These are both doodles of Tom, from my story temporarily titled "Kingdom of a Dream."

He was raised as female because he was a flaw born into a tradition that had never before been broken...Collapse )

Whee, lot's of back story on Tom there! And now for the doodles:

Girl Tom

   Angry Tom

Anti-Biotics: Sickness Encapsulated

It's been a while, LJ!

I've been absent for some time due to a non-functional computer, and the beginning of fall classes.

As of today, however, I now have a lovely new computer courtesy of my humorous and much-liked electrician. The machine is faster than I could have imagined, and I look forward to doing all that I could not before. The only thing that could possibly make it better would be an external casing suiting my Steampunk tastes.

Speaking of Steampunk, I'm in the Guiness Book of World Records! At San Diego Comic-Con this past July, I took part in a Steampunk gathering and photo-shoot which received the record for being the largest ever. I can only hope they include the photo, so I might point out my visage among the many and take pride in having been part of it. While there, I also met some lovely new Steampunk friends from different parts of the country.

And now, before this fever overtakes my senses, on to the subject for which this entry was named!

Last Thursday, I noticed an odd swelling on my leg the size of half of a small grapefruit! It hadn't been there the night before, so I was dully concerned. I skipped classes that day to go to the hospital, and after a quick and only mildly-painful outpatient procedure, and a prescription in hand, I was on my way. Said prescription was for a course of anti-biotics to be taken over the following ten days.

Now, on the day of the procedure, I was suffering from a migraine caused by the infection, so I paid no mind to the headaches that were to plague me for the next few days, simply writing it off as a symptom of the infection I was set to cure.

Upon taking the first three doses of the anti-biotic, I noticed I was having heart palpitations, but ignored them, determined to see if they continued and were truly related to the pills or not.

As of Monday, I began to feel much worse.

Tuesday, I was light-headed, head-achey, exhausted, and suffering from what I thought was an allergy attack brought on by a very sudden shift in the weather (from the low 60°F to the high 80°F in the span of three hours). Tuesday night, however, I began to experience chills alike those that plague victims of the flu.

At 5:30am Wednesday (today), I had a 101.5°F fever, extreme weakness, and difficulty breathing/chest tightness. It seems I've been having a severe negative reaction to the anti-biotics.

I was prescribed a different sort of anti-biotic today, so hopefully these new pills do the job without sacrificing my general health again.

For now, though, the fever is still present. Methinks it's time for some fever-reducing medication.

Writer's Block: Acquired taste

What is your favorite weird food combination? Have your friends ever tried it or do you only eat it in private?

Flaming Hot Cheetos dipped sparingly in vanilla yogurt, or eaten with a small bite of milk chocolate. There's something about the combination of sweet and spicy and slightly savory that I like.

Similarly, there is a type of senbei (Japanese rice cracker) shaped like sickle moons and flavored with soy sauce and chiles that I like. When possible, I love to toss a few of those in my mouth and take a swig of lemon-lime Gatorade before chewing. Something about that flavor of Gatorade really intensifies the flavor of the senbei, to the point where I like eating the combination more than I do the separate items.

Everyone who sees me eat the combinations think they're disgusting, but I like them.

Writer's Block: Weekend wish list

What's your idea of the perfect weekend? Do you generally prefer unstructured time or a busy social calendar?

I'd love open, free time. Absolutely nothing to do, with the world at my disposal.

Why? I normally work weekends. I can't do anything Friday or Saturday because of work, so it kills my social life during the school year. I'd love to have a weekend completely free (without having to be sick or injured to get it) to do whatever I want.

I'd throw a party, or go on a trip, or drive up to Disneyland, or go on dates, or draw something, or read a book. Or all of the above. ...Or waste my time on LJ, haha!

Writer's Block: Sins of c/ommission

Which do you tend to regret more: things you wish you hadn't said or done or things you wish you had?

I tend to regret and wish to undo things I have said and done, rather than things I've not. There's no way to predict what would have happened if I HAD said or done certain things, so I'm content not to change that. However, there are things I wish I HADN'T ever said or done, because they cause me great embarrassment. I won't even attempt to think of any examples now, to spare myself reliving humiliation, but I know there are a handful.

Writer's Block: Rescue mission

If someone intentionally set fire to your home and you had ten minutes to get out, would you try to save the arsonist or your belongings?

If someone INTENTIONALLY started the fire, they'd be the last thing I save. I have 2 cats, 3 dogs, a chinchilla, a tortoise, and irreplaceable original art to worry about. Save the life of one evil person? Or save the lives of 7 innocent animals, and my life's work. I'll save the latter. Sparing the 1 life of someone who committed a cruel act against me and my family is not worth taking 7 innocent lives. Screw that. If I could get all my animals and art out before the 10 minutes are up, I'd go back in for the bastard, but if not... They set the fire on purpose, so they can deal with the consequences.
