Who is your oldest friend (i.e., the friend you have known the longest)? How often do you see or talk to each other? Do your close friends tend to stay the same year after year or change over time?

I've got a few people who I consider BFFs and I'm actually proud of that.

The person I've known the longest is Nicole, who's my strictly RL bff. We've known each other almost 10 years now. We first met back when I was in the 8th grade and she was in 9th. We were both friends with this girl Melissa, who also lived across the street from me. The day Nicole and I met, she was over at Melissa's and I went over there to see if she wanted to walk down to the corner store with me. Then when I started HS, Nicole and I were both on the yearbook staff and we sat together and mostly talked during class and after I'd go have lunch with her and her friends. Good times, yo.

Then we have my idk, bff doctorfumbles (private joke). Since she's back east most of the year for school, she's my online/RL bff. We've known each other for almost three years and I talk to her like literally everyday, even if it's just for five minutes or through twitter. The last time we hung out was on my birthday when she came up. It was such an awesome day. She's threatening not to come up this summer when she's home, since I've made her the past three summers. Guess I'll have to start looking up bus/train prices eventually. ;D

Next we have another online/RL bff, this time it's afteriwake. We've known each other, three or four years now? I think it's going to be four, but I'm not entirely sure since I met her before I met doctorfumbles. We met for the first time this past summer at Comic Con. We hung out for a couple of hours almost everyday that I went and it was fantastic. Still totally jealous that she met Alimi Ballard (aka David Sinclair from Numb3rs).

My (unfortunately) only strictly online bff is my mei mei, ethergirl88. We've known each other for about six or seven years now. We first met when I made a layout for someone who was a friend of hers and passed along my info. She asked for a Labyrinth layout, which I ended up making. After that we've been inseparable.

And lastly, but most certainly not least, is my gf/bff proudduckling. About five years ago, I stalked her for about a month because she had made an icon I loved, but lost and couldn't find again. It took me a little over a month to get the courage to finally IM her and I did. We didn't really talk much that day, but a while later we did. I remember the first time we ever had a real conversation. It was during the summer, late night/very early morning. I had stayed up all night and was watching Wild Wild West when she got online. We talked for a few hours until she had to go to work. After that, well it's pretty obvious where we ended up ♥

And I turned to see her weep

More memes, because really, what else is there to do with my life? Both from afteriwake

My username is: thiscanbegin, comes from the Something Corporate song "Punk Rock Princess". The whole line goes maybe when I'm done with endings this can begin. Doesn't matter how many times I listen to that song, that one line always sticks out above the rest. I've sort of adopted it as my motto. Everything has to end at some point, but at the same time, everything has a beginning. So just because something has ended, doesn't mean you can't begin again. Never knew I could be so deep, huh?

My journal name is: "you can see her lying naked in your arms", another lyric (all my titles are, actually) from the song "Sometime Around Midnight" the The Airborne Toxic Event.

My title is: "tattoo your name across my heart", from Beyonce's "Sweet Dreams". I picked this because it goes good with my subtitle.

My subtitle is: "this is relationship suicide", from The Script's "Talk You Down". Another line that just stands out for me.

My friends page is called: "when you start the day just to close the curtains", from Jack Mannequin's "Mixed Tape". Not really much to say about this one, I just never bothered to change it form when all the others are Jack's Mannequin/Something Corporate themed.

My default userpic is:
bsg - kara "starbuck" thrace [fly] by thiscanbegin, for the longest time my default was some way related to President Obama. Then within the last few months I decided to change it and now it's been Starbuck from BSG three times.

- - -

Now, more icons.

whoinverse - david/john by sequanne_art - I have a love/hate relationship with this icon. Love, because obviously, David Tennant and John Barrowman kissing, but hate because I could have seen this happen in RL at this past Comic Con, but I was in another panel. Unfair, yo. Even though the Mythbusters were totally worth it.

the restCollapse )

Oh, and I totally forgot about the seven days one. I should be on day 6 right now, so I'm just going to play catch up.

day 01 | a song - "Ring of Fire" by Adam Lambert.
day 02 | a picture - My absolutely favourite picture of proudduckling (if not obvious by my icon).
day 03 | a book/ebook/fanfic - Some fanfic recs. doctorfumbles writes this amazing Doctor Who/Original series called Government Bribes. It's about this Time Agent named Charlie who's been watching after this girl named Lily, after she met The Doctor when she was a child. Now Lily is grown up and she and Charlie are realizing their feelings for one another and finally starting to act on them. It hasn't been updated in a while, but she's promised me 5,000 for meeting my crossbigbang deadline.

afteriwake writes this amazing The Mentalist AU that focuses on Wayne Rigsby and Grace van Pelt and their relationship, called keepasecret_fic. Basically they're together, but because of their jobs, no one can know that they're a couple. She's told me some of her ideas as to where she wants to go with the series and I'm excited!

Last one is a sort of self-pimp but not really because I co-write it. motion_fic is an AU based off my original CSI series (csi_no, that I co-write with doctorfumbles). I'm only pimping this is because, it's become more of a merger between my series and afteriwake's series "Searching For Peace of Mind". I've decided to start writing it again, even though I have to start from scratch since 95% of my fics were lost.

day 04 | a site - http://twitter.com/ I couldn't think of anything else.
day 05 | a youtube clip - The Mean Kitty Song. I can't tell you how many times I've watched/listened to this.
day 06 | a quote - When did society decide that we had to change and wash a tee shirt after every individual use: If it's not dirty, I'm gonna wear it - a lyric from "I'm Ready" by Jack's Mannequin.
day 07 | whatever tickles your fancy

My life has become a boring pop song

Because I'm weird, I have a habit of assigning real life people (actors/actresses/etc...) to play my fictional characters. So here are the characters of Standing on the Edge of Morning.

Big thanks to doctorfumbles for putting up with my crazy and helping me come up with a list of people to use. She claims to just have googgled what I asked for, but I know that she came up with awesome people because she's awesome herself ♥.

Darcy is the only character in this story who is actually featured on Degrassi:TNG. Everyone else is an original character and belongs to me.

Writing meme I stole from doctorfumbles.

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!.

I know it says single sentence, but for quotes I'm going to include the whole bit.

01. "It wasn't very different from high school. Classes and murders."
02. Kara couldn't help the smirk that slowly spread across her face as she thought up a clever joke.
03. "Don't talk, just listen. We need your help and this is serious. Lives are at stake, all of Cardiff, which includes her. Will you help?"
04. Rodney looked at him with another 'seriously?' look.
05. "Breathing, Ronon. Kind of an issue," John gasped as Ronon's massive arms crushed the breath out of him.
06. Buffy does not like Faith and Spike being so comfortable together.
07. Jack nodded, but he could tell it did little to comfort her.
08. "When I first met Kevin, he could only drain energy, is that part of your powers too?" Ben asked.
09. Didn't I buy you a trunk for your-" Giles lowered his voice as a group of people walked by, "weapons, so you could keep them inconspicuous?"
10. "Why do you guys have to be such pigs all the time?"
11. "Really? That's weird cause I've heard somethings about you and..."
12. I'm about to turn around and yell at the driver that he took me to the wrong place, when the door opens and my mother comes running out screaming.
13. "Vampires who don't find pleasure in the hunt or taking a life."
14. "Oh that's it, Messer."
15. "You know how Mac is," Stella said.

A few days ago, doctorfumbles and I, decided to have an impromptu "icon battle". We worked together to come up with a list of fifteen fandoms and then on our own, picked out two caps each per fandom.

Since it added up to being sixty icons each, doctorfumbles had the bright idea to split the icons up into the caps I picked and the caps she picked, and we each post them at our journals.

So without further ado, the caps I picked.

- - -
01-60 Multifandom icons (fandoms listed with each icon set)

01. I did a bunch of alternates, so I'm going to post those in a new entry since there were so many.

afteriwake has been compiling a list of hot guys for about a month and a half now and she finally has enough guys to post. So tonight, I collected all the pictures, organized them, put them into Photobucket and then made up a post in Word with all the HTML. And it only took about 5 hours!

Since I worked so hard (and contributed a fair amount of guys), I'm going to post the lists here too. Yes, I said lists. There were just so many guys and so many pictures, that I had to break it down into categories; tv, movies, music and sports. Even there was only one picture for each guy, it still probably would've taken at least two posts. This way it's just more organized, I think.

Okay, enough explaining. I'm tired and my ass hurts from sitting here so long and I want to go to bed. Without further ado, here are the hot guys.

- - -

There are 123 clickable thumbnails (that a pretty small) of sexy guys, organized in alphabetical order by fandom (or general fandom, as is the case with CSIverse, Jossverse and Whoverse) and by guy.

!!!WARNING!!! The third Jamie Bamber picture is extremely not work safe. The rest of the pictures are pretty tame, just the occasional shirtless guy.

Hot guys of televisionCollapse )

The ones with an * by there name are the ones I picked. I've also realized from doing this, that I tend to like guys with beards/stubble and who have lighter eyes (green, blue, light hazel).
