...okay, so I admit it. I suck at going to the gym. I went one time, nearly passed out and then never went again. I'm cancelling my membership at the Y. From now on, I'm going to be working out at home.

I swear I will. I swear!

Is anyone on my flist a member of Gaia Online? I know [livejournal.com profile] maechi is, but I'm not sure about anyone else. I stay away from the forums because the majority of the members are preteens (or act like preteens), but it's a fun way to kill time when you're bored. I love dressing up my little character. My flist probably wants to kill me for changing my outfits every day. ^-^; If anyone is a member, please say so and I'll add you!

Currently my avi looks like this:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Inevitably, however, that will change. Probably tomorrow! But today it is Ninja Girl in honor of Shippuden.

SPEAKING OF SHIPPUDEN! Was I the only one who didn't love it? It seemed like the drawing wasn't the best, and I didn't like the character designs very much either. I thought since it was the first of the new series, they'd really try to wow people. As it is, I almost don't want to bother downloading the next episode when it comes out. I haven't really even been into Naruto lately and Shippuden didn't do much to get me back. Anyone have similar thoughts?
Huh... how long has the "current location" option been there? I just noticed it... hopefully it was just added and I haven't been blind for like, months. That would be something I'd do.

I really, really love this song. I heard it was the newest Naruto ending song, and since they did my favorite ending song, I downloaded it right away and I love it even more than "Wind." I think it's my new favorite song. I should probably look around for some more songs by Akeboshi. I'm also really looking forward to the new episodes to start airing. I stopped watching the anime when they started airing fillers, so I haven't watched a new episode of Naruto for over a year!

As suspected, my iPod is my new favorite toy. I adore it with every fiber of my being. It's kind of annoying in the car, just because most of the time I'm driving, I'm driving long distances and I keep having to search for new empty radio stations to broadcast through (I don't think that's the proper way to say it, but whatever, I'm not looking for the directions to the broadcasting stuff to check for the proper terminology). I really hate the static I get when I'm starting to go out of range.

I hope that made sense. ^_^;

Another thing I hate is that my internal clock is completely out of whack and it's totally my own fault. Every time I go home for the weekend, I stay up really, really late. Like, for example, 3am or later. Then when I come back to school, I can't get to sleep until 3am or later! That's... really not good. Today it finally seemed to hit me (probably because I've been holding a cold off for the past few months and it's been catching up to me the past few weeks) and I just couldn't get up today until 3 or 4. Yeah... that's pretty bad. I need to work on that. But my head was just killing me...

At home, at least I can usually sleep soundly. Here, I can't. It's too hot and too different and I'm still not really used to having another person sleeping in the same room as me, plus she gets up at 6 or 7am every day. Occasionally she wakes up as late as 8am, but it's rare. Gah!
I can't believe it, but I actually sat down and wrote for [livejournal.com profile] 3measures. Worked a couple hours, whined and grumped and was all-around critical, but I finished and it's posted. Whee! And [livejournal.com profile] naatz gets my first child for listening to me sulk, and then telling me what I screwed up on and how to fix it.

Title: The Expected Outcome
Rating: G
Theme: #1: camera obscura
Summary: "Occasionally on long missions, Team 7 gets to sleep indoors. Unfortunately for Team 7, they usually have to share a room. The problem with three teenagers sharing a room is that once they get past the awkwardness, all that's left is three teenagers sharing a room." [NaruSakuSasu]

So, I said I was going to work on a theme for [livejournal.com profile] 3measures. I completely failed! But I did manage to finish a drabble I'd started a few months ago, and it's Team 7. That's progress!

Span )

I know, it's not the greatest. But I like it. :D

I've got a new mood theme! And not only that, but a TEAM 7 mood theme! This is the best day ever, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hinata, who posted two very lovely themes in [livejournal.com profile] chuunin just a little while ago.

...and I'm only using this mood because it was the first one I found (checking randomly) that had all three members of the team. :D

Although I am hopeful that this will give me inspiration to work on one of the nine themes I need to write for [livejournal.com profile] 3measures. So far, I've only managed to write down some ideas for two of the themes. None of the ideas gave me the urge to write. They weren't very good ideas. I did get really frustrated that I couldn't reuse a fic I've already written, because Echoes would be just perfect for "unfinished trilogy." But no, I had to write that in July of 2004. Goddammit.

I can't decide if I'm insane, or just a masochist. There's a new theme community just for threesomes, and even though I know I shouldn't attempt it, I claimed NaruSasuSaku (Team 7). It's only nine themes, but I'm still insane. I probably won't be able to finish even one!

Still, I have to try. It helps that it can be about platonic or familial relationships, too. More options that way!

Oh, and I suppose I should pimp the comm, because everyone needs to claim a threesome to write. They are the best! [livejournal.com profile] 3measures is a great idea, everyone should go check it out. I looked over all the claims, and some people have picked the oddest ones. I can't wait to see what's going to be done with them!

Oh, wow. I just spent over two hours studying for exams. This is a completely unprecidented event, and it needs to go down in the history books. Written in bold.

On the subject of the Naruto dub, this rant sums up my feelings, and it's really funny too. Plus, lots of cussing. I love me some swear words. <3

ETA: Okay, maybe not my feelings exactly, but I am in definite approval of any rant with lots of cussing, especially if I generally agree with it.
I'm trying to do more fandom related posts (more? Have I ever done any?), but bear with me because I think I'm rusty. *wince*

The trailer was... not too bad. That's really hard for me to say, because I hate dubs. I don't bash dubs, but I hate them just the same. I get too attached to the Japanese voices, and can't accept anyone else taking their place. It doesn't help that American voice actors are generally not as good as Japanese seiyuu.

I'm really happy about the way they pronounced the names. The thing that most anti-dub people complain about is name pronunciation, but the Naruto dubbers did an incredibly good job keeping as close to the Japanese pronunciation as is possible with an American accent. There were a lot of names I couldn't find any fault with at all, and that is something I have literally never said about a dub before.

Mostly, the only voice heard is the narrator, but if the actors can do half as well, I will be incredibly pleased.

Not that I'll watch more than one or two episodes.
I have four new userpics!

Not one of them is of Neji or Itachi or of the two of them together.

I do this because I care (and most certainly not because I'm the laziest girl to ever exist), and because I do not care that I've been disowned. I am so not upset about it. I did not cry myself to sleep last night.


Also, as an aside, what do breasts have to do with anything? o.o
...why is ItaNeji not canon? No, seriously. *WHIMPER*

Camp Fuck You Die is warping my brain.

And why don't I have either a Neji or an Itachi icon? I've got like half a dozen Naruto, but no Itachi? Shame on me.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] angels_requiem and [livejournal.com profile] cynic_in_charge just disowned me! ;_; Whyyyyyy?!

ETA 2: But [livejournal.com profile] naatz just said BAD JENNIE a few times. I win. :D
I need to go to the chiropractor again. I was fine for a week or so, but now my entire back is cramped up and I can't stand the pain. I wonder if it would have happened if I hadn't been doing all that kneeling and crouching to dust at work. I was used to 10 or 11 hours a week (I know, ridiculously little) and now I've been bumped up to 25 or 26 hours a week.

To make matters worse, this is the week that my new manager has decided to stick me back into the clothing departments. I haven't been in the clothing departments regularly since November, at least, so I'm going to be relearning everything, and I've only got a week and a half left before my last day of work. This is stress that I did not especially need right now.

I'm also excited because it's now absolutely certain that I'm going to have my new computer by the end of next week at the latest. Brian and Kiel ordered all the parts on Wednesday night, and they should have all arrived by Tuesday. Then it's just a matter of finding a day for the two of them to get together to build it. I'm really excited--Brian has assured me that it's a really awesome computer. He's actually a little jealous, he said, because they found some really good deals so I got better parts than I'd asked for. He's getting a really amazing laptop that I'm jealous of, though, so it all works out. Oh, and it is 90% certain that Dad is also getting me a flat-screen monitor. Kiel said Office Max has decent ones for $220, and sometimes there's a $50 rebate, so Dad's going to watch the ads this weekend and see what he can get.

On a more fandom front, I'm actually really getting back into Naruto. I think it wasn't a coincidence that I lost interest just as Sasuke vanished. It's not that I'm a particularly huge Sasuke fan, it's just that... well, it's not really interesting without him. Naruto needs a Sasuke. He just does. I'm not a huge Sasuke fan, like I said, but I am a huge Team 7 fan. I can stand them being apart just as long as it's temporary, but Sasuke hasn't been in the manga since like, what, going on a year now, with no hint that he'll be showing up anytime soon?

Um, anyway, clearly it isn't the manga that I've suddenly taken interest in again, because Sasuke is still vanished. I just realized the other day that I was starving for Sasuke and so I've been reading every Sasuke-centric, Team 7, and NaruSasu fic I can get my hands on. It's working for now... I'm completely into Naruto again. I just don't know how long I can keep it up!

Speaking of which, I'm still desperate for fic. Can anyone recommend a well-characterized fic either about Sasuke, or just having a lot of him in it?

I started a Sasuke-centric ficlet last night, finished the rough draft last night, and went over it and uploaded it this morning. Joy. I don't much like it, but I never like any of my fic, so we'll see what other people think, I guess. Hopefully it's not bad. XD; It's my OT3, I just couldn't resist...

Title: Work In Progress
Rating: PG-13 / T
Summary: He wasn't quite finished yet, but they were working on that. [NaruSasuSaku][threesome][oneshot]

As usual, I've completely ignored the whole barrel arc.

Now let's see if I can finish that stupid, nonsense Sakura ficlet I started just before I started this one... I'm not holding my breath on that.
ikarit: (Default)
( Dec. 1st, 2004 10:33 pm)
Finished up a Sasuke-centric oneshot that I've had mostly finished on my hard drive for a while. A little too dramatic, but I'm too sick of working on it to care.

Title: Like Glass
Rating: PG-13
Summary: His family is dead, his brother is a murderer, his heart is missing. They call him a genius. [oneshot]

Sasuke's tantrum taken from my own experiences. In the sense that I used to have rage issues and was very good at showing my feelings.
ikarit: (Default)
( Dec. 1st, 2004 03:52 pm)
So, um... Eve, remember when I promised you a fic? And then never mentioned it again?

Yeah, well... it didn't quite work out. But I did finish SOMETHING for you! Don't laugh too hard.

Title: Routine
Rating: G
Pairings: InoLee
Summary: She hated their routine, so she decided to change it. It didn't quite go as planned. [oneshot]

There. You got the InoLee I never wanted to write.
ikarit: (gaara/ in the valley of fallen stars)
( Oct. 19th, 2004 02:21 am)
Erk, so why does Eve tend to be the one who makes me feel like writing? Why? It's not necessarily a BAD thing, but I usually never finish anything. XD;;

So it was mere luck that tonight I did a drabble. Who doesn't finish drabbles? (Well, me, actually. I've got a couple of unfinished ones...)

*coughs* Anyway, here it is. Gaara drabble, 100 words exactly. I don't really like it. At all. Might rewrite it later.

Colors )
Another fic. Eheh. As I said to several people, this is really kinda sad. Two and a half years of writing Inuyasha fanfics, and I only have three finished fics and one unfinished (probably never to be finished) fic. One week of writing Naruto fics, and I have four finished fics.

This one I'm not actually very proud of at all. *sulks* I had the idea, and I really liked it, but once I sat down to type it out, it just... sucked. Went flat. Was... sucky. Look, it's even making me redundant! Anyway, yeah.

Title: Extraordinary
Rating: G
Summary: She was the first person to believe in his dream. He just doesn't know it. [one-sided NaruHina] [oneshot]

I wonder if I should even put the notice of NaruHina... they're seven years old, and just passing on the street. Hm. Doesn't even mention her crush on him... I guess it's fine, though.
ikarit: (Default)
( Jul. 15th, 2004 02:18 pm)
Eheh. Eheheheheh. Another Naruto ficlet. ^_^; I have no idea where they're coming from. The first one I had to force myself to write, the second came completely out of nowhere and wouldn't shut up, and this one... was much the same.

Title: Pineapple Metaphors
Rating: G
Pairings: None, unless you consider irritation for a person a romantic attachment
Summary: Shikamaru is too lazy to fit into a proper metaphor, and Ino despairs. [oneshot]

Speaking of my recent fic-writing explosion, Echoes has got ten reviews already, and most of them are really, really good. I'm kind of in shock... they're all coherent, detailed reviews. I was really embarrassed this morning when I woke up and saw them. There was actually only eight two hours ago, but now there are ten. I can't see the latest two, though. I'm really happy, because they're the best reviews for a fic I've written, ever.

So, if anyone who reviewed reads this, thank you so much. It made my day... heck, my week!

About two and a half hours ago, I got another fic idea, and it wouldn't let go. First time in years I've felt so compelled to write down an idea, right then. Got it all out in about two hours (with a break for dinner), and voila!

Title: Echoes
Rating: PG-13, for serious subject matter
Summary: It will be Sakura's first real solo mission without her teammates. She regrets that she ever looked forward to it. [oneshot]

No real romance or anything, really, though there is some SasuSaku interaction that could possibly be construed as that... though it's not even close... *coughs* It's a weird, weird ficlet. WEIRD.

Don't ask me how my twisted mind came up with the idea. I have no idea.
ikarit: (Default)
( Jul. 13th, 2004 11:45 pm)
Well, I just mostly gave up on that Naruto ficlet I wrote the other night, and posted it to FF.N after very slight editing and additions. It's probably crap, but I can't get into writing any more of it, even just editing.

Title: Lambency
[an appearance of reflected light]
Rating: PG-13, for implied sexual relationships
Spoilers: None really, as it's blatantly ignoring latest manga arc
Summary: The differences didn't matter, because even if she loved the two of them in different ways, the three of them loved each other in all the same. [SasuSakuNaru]

So, there it is if anyone wants to read it. Like I said, it's probably crap, but... I'm just happy I wrote something at all! Plus, for the first time in... ah... God, it'll be three years this Thursday... since I've written anything but Inuyasha fic. Even if it is just a short, roughly 500-words ficlet.

Oh, and I wore one of Bri's t-shirts today. It was really amusing, because Mom put it in my closet by accident, and I thought it was nice, so I wore it. Bri stared at me for a second when she saw me, but then just shrugged. He doesn't care about anything, the apathetic boy. Hrmph. Anyway, it's comfy. It says a lot about our respective body types, as it's sort of tight on me (especially around the chest), but loose on Bri. I suppose that would have to do with me weighing more than him... and having E-cups... which he does not. Thank God, that would be disturbing.
