It's Been Fucking Forever

since I last posted. Shiiiiiitttt. Life happened. Lots of it.

I've been so busy living in the real world, I've neglected my digital life, but this is good news. XD

I shall become more active again, once I figure out my focus for my other blogs and web adventures.

So it goes.


CHANGE - pronounced "Ch-anh-hey"

Planning on getting rid of a bunch of my old icons and switching them with newer ones, seeing as I have a huge folder on my computer that's nothing but icons that will probably never see the light of the Internet, so I figure I should rotate them like tires.

On top of that: writing more fanfiction lately, as well as working on my second fanmix and tweaking my first one. Huzzah! Something I've never done before, so, um.. how do you do it? How do I package the playlist and song files together so people can play them no matter what media thing they use?

Also, I recruited five of my friends to do NaNoWriMo with me this year. Whether they finish or not, doesn't matter. I'm just glad to have friends in real-life doing it with me. XD

And what's the deal with all this LiveJournal/Dream Width drama? What's going on with that?


The complications got complicated.

In short, some things happened.

In shorter-short, Myspace is so buggy and slow, I can't stomach it anymore.  I'm on Facebook mostly, so if you wanna add me, g'on. Sarah Ann Heath.

Thinking about asking one of the mods from cap_ironman  for an invitation to DreamWidth, just to have one. Mmm.  Not leaving LJ. Too much precious things. 

For some reason, I seem to be stuck talking in short sentences. Oh well. So it goes. Stuck in this style because of short story I wrote. Strong narrative character, stronger vibe from the words.

Need some more sleep, should be sleeping now. School tomorrow. Matters, but it doesn't. Writing again. Feels good. Tired.

Need sleep.

I'm going now.




I absolutely love it when my brain's all a-flutter with several fandoms and pairings all at once. :D Makes me feel productive because I'm spitting out story ideas like some people do watermelon seeds in the summer.

Also, I'm over at the Gulf Coast Community College library again, not because I'm waiting for Jake. Nope!  I just got done printing up my report for English, which is my first class of the day and I haven't had any time to do that before hand. XD  

Oh, that reminds me. I need to ask Ms. Hendrix if Iron Chef is a good enough reality t.v. show for our formal assignment. 

Anyway, I'm off today from work. Obviously playing the hell out of Birth By Sleep - it's a completionist's dream come true - with some possible fanfic-writing in there somewhere and maybe I'll hang out with the boyfriend-person. I don't know yet. Whatever.

Okay, I'm done here. I'm getting hungry. Time to go scrounge around the cafeteria and see what terribly unhealthy thing I can cram into my mouth and satisfy my hunger pangs.




In response to today's earlier post...

BOOM, BABY. 50 sentence-drabbles of Borderlands' slashy-het-femmeslashy goodness!

Read it and weep it here @ my writing journal, effingshisno .

Seriously, dude? SERIOUSLY?

There's no Borderlands slash on the 'net? 


Also --

I'm generally displeased with the fan fiction offerings already in existence for Borderlands.

I see plenty of het with Lilith/Mordecai as the main pairing, and even a little bit of femmeslash with Lilith/Mad Moxxie. But no Roland/Lilith? Why, because he's black? >:c I freaking love me some Roland!  And no Lilith/Brick, either. Damn.  That's my OTP for Borderlands.

As for the lack of slash, I'm pleased to say it looks like I'm the first to write it for Roland/Mordecai, Dr.Zed/Mordecai, Dr.Zed/Roland, and Brick/Mordecai.  I've also written Roland/Lilith and Lilith/Brick snippets, with implied Lilith/Mad Moxxie and Mad Moxxie/Mordecai, along with gen-fic and friendship pieces.

Seriously, man, SERIOUSLY?

And where do I post these when I'm done?  There's no Borderlands_slash or Borderlands_fans or borderlands_fic comms around here.  I'd make one for the sake of its existence, but I really don't want the responsiblity of being a mod. There's a section on FF.Net, but I don't know if I wanna even touch that.

Is this a fandom that hasn't been saturated by fans?  Is it a "rare" fandom, as Yuletide would call it? Sure, it's not quite overrun with OCs yet.... but for every badfic, there's always a gem right?




While this guy has some good points when it comes to writing, he really needs to find the spell check feature on his blog.  Dad says he might have to manually install one.  I'm quite worried about him.  He misspelled "thoughts of a writer" as "Thoughs[sic] of a writer."

Maybe I shouldn't take any merit in what he says.

Then again, I'm not the best when it comes to spelling, either.  I have a tendency to drop words in my sentences when I'm typing too fast.  Some scientists think that's my brain's way of trying to match the speed of my fingers. Or something like that.

Anyway, you be the judge.





In fact, it's probably something hardly anybody knows - I mean, I just told my best friend of 14 years and she didn't know until freaking today - but I'm telling you now: I LOVE FRANK SINATRA.  You didn't know that, did you?  His music, his lyrics, and oh god that voice... I could listen to him all the time.  In fact, I do, pretty much.

"My Way" is my favorite Frank Sinatra song of ALL TIME.

Just so you know.

A note on Fandoms:

They make my world round.  No, they don't make it go 'round.  They make it round.

They're that awesome. 

I spend most of time in at least one fandom, if not multiples all at once. I know what it's like to be absolutely obessed with a pairing, a character, a plot line.  It's amazing, and it can do equally amazing things to your own creativity.  You'll start off as just a fan girl/fan boy, and through idolizing your fandoms, you grow as a writer.  You take what you like, and you implement in your story whether you do it consciously or not.

And your  soul grows every time you create something that didn't exist before you made it yourself, even if it's some cracky porn fic you're writing for a kinkmeme - your soul still expanded, at least a teensy bit. 

I wish my writing could change lives like that.  I wish my characters would have other obsessive fans besides me.  I don't count.  I'm the one who created them - I'm biased.

As a wish, I release this into the universe:  I would like my Some Idiots storyline and characters to one day develop a fandom and fannish following all its own.  I'd love to read someone's fanfiction with my own characters -- in theory. (Just because I'd like to see it, doesn't mean I'll like reading it. Even if they're my characters, bad writing is bad writing.)  I'd love to find that there's a fanart community surrouding the lovely details of Walt's ever-changingly colorful boxer shorts, or that someone started a someidiots_slash comm on LJ, one not created by me and run by fans of my work.

THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.  And then I'd hang out with my fans in stealth, pretending to be a fan girl amongst them while secretly glowing with my wonderful success, reading their theories and explainations on the fandom and wondering where they hell they think of this stuff.

Yeah, I know that's extremely selfish, and it's making a major assumptaion as to whether my material actually strikes any cord with readers... Assumign that I ever finish editing and publish the damn thing.

Okay, even I'll say that this will probably, in all likeliness, NEVER HAPPEN, and if breaks some sort of natural law and then by accident HAPPENS, it's not happening for at least another twenty years, give or take.

And I'm totally fine with that. <3
