I realized today... I have a superiority complex. Not on a Kira level or anything, but... it's there. It's like, if I know you and I'm friends with you and all, and then I found out that you haven't gone to college/don't go to college/aren't going to go to college, then that's one thing. But if I barely know you, and then you tell me that you didn't try in high school, or that you didn't go/aren't going to college, I'll think less of you. I judge my peers here in New York based on what high schools they go to- I know of most of them, and... if you don't go to what I consider to be a "good" high school, I'll just assume that you're not as smart as I am...
I don't even know. It's not something I'm proud of or anything... it's not something I want to keep, and if I can get rid of it, I will. I just... I dunno. Like surrounding myself with people who are on my level intellectually. Meaning, for the most part, people who have/are going to get a college degree.
I don't mean any of you, by the way. This is entirely real life related... it's just something that came to me.
By the way? Walking around midtown Manhattan for two hours and at least three miles for a Halloween costume that only one store in a chain has, and that store won't exchange your smaller size for it, so you simply have to get a different costume? Yeah, that's not pleasant.
I'm going to have to go back and re-watch Heroes. All of it. And still find time to catch up on Glee. And watch House online, because some idiot at Fox decided that it would be a good idea to move House to Monday, at the exact same time Heroes is on. And to be honest, as much as I love House, if I have to choose between the two, I'm going to have to go with Heroes... but that's not the point.
My points (Non-spoilery here... you'll be able to infer things if you're intelligent, which you all are, but... they themselves aren't spoilery. Yay loopholes!) :
-Am I the only one who vaugely crack!ships Tracy/HRG after this?
-Claire is... in the debate over whether or not Claire is stupid, I don't take sides- I don't think she's stupid, but she's less than brilliant. But not stupid... but some of her moves in this episode were... less than stellar.
-Whoever made the decision to let Milo Ventimiglia grow out his hair in front again? GOOD JOB. THEY DESERVE A RAISE.
-TEENAGE HIRO IS SO CUTE.
-So is Ando/Kumiko.
-Matt? It's called ignore him.
-Oh, and ZACHARY QUINTO NEEDS TO STOP BEING SO DAMN SEXY. I MEAN, WHAT IS IT WITH HEROES AND MAKING ALL THIER VILLAINS SO GORGEOUS??? ...Not that I'm complaining or anything...
-...If Hiro's going back in time, will he go back and try to help Adam too?? Please??? PLEASE??????
Mmkay, this should be obvious, but... SPOILERS AHOY IN THE COMMENTS.
...Fandom is taking over my life in ways I never would have believed. People can't say "hold it" when they want me to wait for them anymore without me giggling, and asking them to present evidence if they've even heard of Ace Attorney. One of the answers in the crossword in todays New York Times crossword puzzle was "Eureka". I can't even flip on the light anymore without wondering "if I flip the switch, will it turn Light on?" and I'm always so happy when the answer is yes... I think I need more of a life. But this one is so fun!! XD
So, on a much more serious note, my great aunt's in the hospital. I mean, you would think that when a 94 year old woman is leaning on the open car door of a taxi while her 50-something year old relative is getting her walker out of the trunk (something that the cabbies are supposed to help with, by the way, which this guy was not), you would notice a) one of the doors on your cab is open, and b) A 94 YEAR OLD WOMAN IS LEANING ON IT, and you WOULDN'T START JUST DRIVING OFF AFTER YOUR TRUNK WAS CLOSED. Leaving my great aunt to fall to the ground, breaking her wrist so she has to stay in the hospital. For days, and at least one full one of those is without proper pain medication. Geez... I don't even know.
Hotmail is also being fucked up as I try to sign up for an account there, but I don't have the heart to complain about that too...
So instead I'll just end with how awesome it is that I have a friend coming in tomorrow from New Jersey so we can finally chill for the first time since AnimeNEXT, and we'll probably go see Avenue Q, assuming we can get the tickets. Which should be AMAZING, especially considering how we both already know the soundtrack~
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender/Heroes crossover fic
Characters: Azula, Mohinder, mentions of Sylar
Warnings: None, I think. I might've screwed up some Heroes canon, but... it's crossover fic anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
Author's Notes: I hope you enjoy it, kurasari!! And if anything is off with it (it is your crossover 'verse, after all), just let me know and I'll fix it. And just fyi... it really isn't as dark as the title makes it seem. Really. It isn't. :D
( Beginnings and Revenge )
-A.P. U.S. History exam was today by the way. Easy. Granted, I've been taking the one year course spread out over three years, but... easy.
-Saw Star Trek again today, just to see it with a proper theater audience, and to say I'd seen it on opening day. Still awesome. STILL GO SEE IT.
-Zachary Quinto is far too gorgeous for his own good. I'm even seeing him as SYLAR in a different light... a very, very good one. And all I can say is, in both of his major roles, albiet for different reasons, he loves me for my mind. XD
1) Post a list of up to 20-15 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/etc.
2) Have your f-list guess your favorite character from each item.
These... well, most of them should really be fairly easy to guess, actually... XD
Characters/Pairings: Adam or Kensei - whatever you want to call him here
Rating: PG, maybe a soft PG-13
Warnings: Kind of dark, but that's really it. Nothing too graphic
Author's Notes: Happy holidays kawaiispinel! Sorry I took so very long to post this, but I had to re-write it three times before I got an idea that was any good. Anywho, here you are, and I'll be posting your Tokka fic just as soon as I'm done with this! XD
So according to eljay, I haven't posted here in 5 days. And I have a perfectly good and legitimate reason for it too.
In cheerier news, I don't really have time to do full length posts about Avatar, Heroes and House, but I have a few little things (despide their smallness, they're all spoiltastic, so they're behind their repective LJ cuts):
Okay, and some other stuff too:
One, the Stephen Schwartz concert was AMAZING!! They had some really good people sing his best songs, and it was awesome, and then Stephen Schwartz himself came out and sang "For Good" from Wicked and I died from happiness. XD
b- DUMBLEGAY!!!! It was one of those things where I hadn't thought about it before, but once she said it, it made perfect sense!! And now, I see him so much better. :D
3rd, PREVIEW FOR "THE AVATAR AND THE FIRELORD"!!! Now I know that Zuko is in it too, wearing his outfit from the last episode and everything, and I is very happy!! XD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
Fourthly, Halloween is next week!! I'm wearing my Mai costume again, and I'll be at nature_gurl's apartment building, and it's going to rock, and I'll tell you more about it when it actually happens. XD
Okay, just one more thing, I wanted to practice my writing skills so:
The first fifteen people to comment on this post get to request a drabble from you. In return, they have to post this meme in their journal. Post all fandoms you’re willing to write for.
Fandoms I Can Definitely Write Are:
Avatar: the Last Airbender, House, Friends, Wicked, Harry Potter
Fandoms I Can Probably Manage Are:
Heroes, 30 Rock, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, RENT, The Phantom of the Opera
Prompts please! I'll probably be doing most of these during
30 Rock: TONIGHT!!
Tribute Concert to Stephen Schwartz: TOMORROW!!!!!!
Whenever I get to see Avatar: Maybe tomorrow, probably two days from now... :/
Heroes: 4 days!!
The Return of House: 5 days!!
I. have. the. world's. crappiest. and. slowest. and. just. generally. worst. internet. ever. GAH!!!
On the bright side, I have the Stephen Schwartz concert tomorrow (SQUEE!!!) and as soon as I get to see Avatar, there will be a SHIRTLESS ZUKO!!!! You will want to keep 50 feet away from me as I'm fangirling. Or at least 10 feet, because I assure you, you're not going to want to be in the middle of that. XD
So, since I don't really have anything else to talk about today, I'm finally going to post my cosplay pics from _loudnproud_and my party of two!! XD Just in case you can't tell, I'm supposed to be Mai, and _loudnproud_is Jun.
30 Rock: Tomorrow!!
Tribute concert for Stephen Schwartz: TWO DAYS!!!
Whenever I finally get to see Avatar: Three days... I think. Maybe less if I can get it earlier, but I am definately seeing it on Saturday no matter what.
Heroes: 5 days!!
The Return of House: 6 days!!
So I had the pleasure of taking the PSAT's today. It was wierd... I usually do really well in Math, and totally screw up anything having to do with English on these kinds of things. Today though I did really well in English, answering every question with time to spare on each English section so I got to doodle in the margins of the test booklet, but I died in Math, not getting the chance to answer 3 questions in both Math sections. Ugh... and then because the test went on for so long, and we have ridiculously early lunch periods, I missed 20 minutes of lunch. But then, last period, I had a U.S. HISTORY TEST!!! And on top of that, the U.S. test was so long I had to stay for a little while after school was over to finish it, which meant that I missed my school bus and had to take the subway home. Fun. And now I get to babysit two little kids (aged 5 and 8 ish?), although that actually shouldn't be too bad, I start at 7 and they go to bed at 8, so then I just watch TV until 10 when their mother comes home. Still though, it's just the whole mentality.
Oh, and I'll post my extrordinarily late cosplay pics up tomorrow, I just want to Photoshop them some so they don't look really bad...
My PSATs: tomorrow *gleep*
30 Rock: 2 days!!
Tribute to Stephen Schwartz Concert: 3 DAYS!!!
Avatar the Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 5 (which I conveniently don't know the title to, but has Zuko shirtless, which makes anything and everything awesome): Technically 3 days, but 4 for me, since the Stephen Schwartz concert is on Friday, but still, awesome!!!
Heroes: 6 days!!
The Return of House: One week!!
So I return to Livejournal!! I'm sure you're all thrilled. XD I'm sorry I was gone for so long, but I have the World's Crappiest Internet. It literally didn't connect at all all weekend, and yesterday I was just trying to catch up on my fpage. I didn't even catch up all the way...
Anywho, onto other news, _loudnproud_, you are awesome. The fanmix is fantastic, and YOU PUT EMO KID ON THE CD TOO!!! XD You are so officially awesome to me, it's... awesome. XD
So, news of this weekend:
I went to go see Elizabeth: The Golden Age with nature_gurl, which was alright. It probably would have been better as a movie if you had rented the DVD, or at least it will be better like that when the DVD comes out. Basically, the movie was fine, and Cate Blanchett is one of my goddesses of acting
Not much happened, I did my homework and all that kind of stuff, but one awesome thing did happen: I got an awesome, shiny, new cell phone!! Really, I got the Verizon EnV, and it's awesome and I love it and it's fantastic. I'll probably actually post a pic
Well, Mondays generally suck, but Heroes was yesterday so:
OMG I miss my House!! Really, why aren't they showing the episode this week? I asked my parents, but got a complete non-answer from them so...
Okay, PSATs tomorrow... it doesn't actually matter, since it doesn't actually mean anything, but I still have to do really well. There's this National Merit Scholarship thing, and they only accept people to be even semi-finalists for it if they are in the 98th percentile of the PSATs or above, and now it turns out that BOTH MY PARENTS WERE SEMI-FINALISTS WHEN THEY TOOK IT, which means that now I have to be too. They say that it's okay if I'm not, and that it's not mandatory or whatever, but then they also said that they know I can be one if I really want to be, which in English means I have to be at least a semi-finalist for it. GAH. But why be sad? The PSATs mean that I miss most of my classes tomorrow, so... um.... I miss most of my classes tomorrow!!
The last thing, I promise: I've decided to start making things for my kinda-newly formed deviantart account, but I'm not sure what I want to draw... I'm thinking I'll do the Zuko/honor comic (you know which one I'm talking about _loudnproud_), but if you guys have any requests, so long as they're not shipping Zuko with anyone, I'll attempt to do it! XD
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 4 Sokka's Master: TONIGHT!!!
Movies with nature_gurl: Tomorrow!!
Heroes: 3 days!!
House: 4 days!!
30 Rock: 5 days!!
Tribute to Stephen Schwartz: 7 days!!
My friends are so annoying... we had two whole class periods to work on a project that we were doing together, and what it is is that we have to make part of a newspaper on a certain topic during the Antebellum period of U.S. History (about 1800-1860), and so we're doing the role of women. Anywho, during those class periods, I was working on my part of our project- the political cartoon, and I was carefully drawing and writing and everything, and they were using the computers to go on Facebook.
And on a completely unrelated note, I
Yeah, that's really basically it for now... and now I really have to go get our foodstuffs... XD
Gotham Kids 'n' Comedy Workshop: Tomorrow!!
Yankees vs. Indians Playoff game: Also tomorrow!! (YEAH YANKEES!!!)
Heroes: 2 days
House: 3 days
30 Rock: 5 days
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 4 (seriously peoples, does anyone know the name of next week's episode??): 6 days
So as I suppose you can guess, I was just watching Gone With The Wind. It's absolutely gorgeous, and Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara is amazing...
Not all that much happened today, but it was still a pretty awesome day. We (my family and I) went into midtown, and we got tickets for this tribute to Stephen Schwartz concert, which should be awesome!!
Then, we went to the Museum of Television and Radio (technically it has this new name, it's supposed to be named after someone who bought it, or at least contributed a frillion dollars, but I don't really care...) and we saw a little bit of a documentary of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, and I got this very awesome Star Trek: TNG poster, which makes me happy. XD
Lastly, we went to the Broadway Comedy club to see this improv thing, which was absolutely amazing... the comedians there were fantastic, they thought so fast, and they were so good and everything... I was blown away. Now I'm trying to decide if I was discouraged by that, feeling like I'll never be that good, or if I was encouraged, and they've given me an aspiration to be as good as them.... I actually, honestly don't know.
Gotham Kids 'n' Comedy Workshop: 2 days!! XD
Yankees vs. Indians playoff game: 2 days!! LET'S GO YANKEES LET'S GO!!! *clap clap clap*
No School Because of Columbus Day: 3 days!!!
Heroes: 3 days!!
House: 4 days!!
30 Rock: 6 days!!
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 4: A week... :)
Yes, I have had the brilliant idea to, are you ready for this?, put non-TV related things on my countdowns!! *"El gasp!
And I feel like a total idiot, but I actually don't know the title to next week's episode of Avatar... someone help me? *hides under a rock in shame*
And I'm so happy I'm finally over my cold, so I could go catch another one screaming and fangirling over Avatar!!
Okay, I have a zillion fandoms to do, but I'm going to hold off on one of them until I finish it... there's 30 Rock which was yesterday, Avatar, and the fourth book in the Uglies Trilogy- Extras. Clearly, I'm waiting until I finish Extras. But to everyone out there, the whole series is absolutely fantastic, and if you get the chance, and you haven't already, you have to read it. XD
Now, onto the fangirlery!!
30 Rock: TOMORROWSQUEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar the Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 3 The Painted Lady: 2 DAYSTHANKGODISONEEDIT...
Heroes: 5 days
House: 6 days
So non-TV spoilery stuff first:
Not entirely over my cold yet, I still have a sore throat and everything... honestly today I was just well enough to go to school, so I completely crashed in last period American History. I nearly fell asleep and everything...
Also, my icons are up over at avatar_fans!! Here's the link for all you lovely people: http://community.livejournal.com/
I am such a Narcissus... and I know I probably spelt his name wrong.
Lastly, I was thinking of making a fanmix, but I don't have a particular focus yet... suggestions? It would probably be an Avatar fanmix, because Avatar screenshots are usually easier to photoshop for the cover, but I don't know. Any ideas are welcome, and will be credited!! XD
And now... what you've all been waiting for... Heroes and House
Heroes: TONIGHT!! YAY!!!
House: TOMORROW!!! AND APPARANTLY WE'LL SEE THE REAL MEMBERS OF THE TEAM!!!
30 Rock: 4 DAYS!!!
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 3 The Painted Lady: 5 DAYS... gah it needs to be now.
So today wasn't exactly the best day in the world for me. As I guess you can tell from my heading. If you can guess where it's from without Googling it though, you get a cookie!
So I'm full of angsty/emoness right now... if you can deal with it
Oh, but before I leave all you lovely people, I'm about to go post some icons onto avatar_fans, so go check them out! XD
Countdowns: (damn, there aren't very many of these now, are there?)
Bionic Woman: Tonight. XD
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 2 The Headband: 2 DAYS FANGIRLSQUEE!!
30 Rock: 8 DAYS YAY!!!
My apologies about not posting about these earlier, but my computer decided to hate me. I am probably so behind on my fpage, but I haven't even checked it yet...
And before I get into the fangirlery, I would like to mention how wierd my parents are. First they say that they're okay with my fangirling, but then they ask me not to squee during House last night. So then I said something along the lines of "But that's what fangirling is. So are you okay with me being a fangirl or not?" and they basically said that I can be a fangirl, but I can't squee, which basically means that I can't be a fangirl. They have clearly not adjusted to me being a nerd yet...
And now onto the fangirly fun!
Okay, my major reaction post is over. So today there's Bionic Woman, which should be pretty cool, and then Avatar as my whole awesome TV cycle picks up again!! XD
