Greetings, and welcome to dream land. What is dream land, exactly? Its actually just where I post what kind of stuff I'm drawing/working on. ^^ I also post recent submissions and such. .3. Why is it called dream land, you ask? Well, cos my username is moonlit dream... and that has the word dream in it.... and this is my world... -_-;; yea. The world name is unimportant. x3
Currently working on: NAH-THING. I've been so unproductive...
Hey, I forgot my blog existed... Well, not really. I just feel like nothing interesting goes on in my life, so I haven't had to post lately. xD I wonder if I should post here more often?
Anyways, I recently made a new character! Sort of. He's actually been a character in my mind for a long time, but he never had a face or character so much as a reference to existing. His name's Noland Strong, and you can read a short-ish profile on my charahub. (Also, I have a charahub! I don't think I'll use it often, but now that it has a searchbar I might use it more often. It's a bit difficult to find users, though...)
So. Noland. He's Stefan's ex-boyfriend from college. I don't know if I've ever talked about Stefan's backstory with you, but back in college Stefan had a girlfriend and later a boyfriend--both of which ended up breaking up with him. The point of Noland in Stefan's backstory is that he cheats on Stefan, which influences Stefan into becoming disillusioned with love for the next 8 years. I've always known that Noland exists in the back of my mind, but he never really had a name or a design or anything definite until just a couple days ago. For a while, he was a cool and mysterious foreign guy. (???!??!?! so vague!) Then he was a bi-curious generic sporty boy guy. (Why?) Now he's a kind of bashful intelligent guy with an air about him similar to Dean Johnson, which seems more like the kind of person Stefan would associate with in college. I'll talk more about him in Various Planning some other time when I scan my sketches of him.
What's useful about Noland is that I can use him for a different story I've been thinking about for a while. :V HOORAY. It's about Teacher Noland and a student of his named Chrystal/Chrys, with little to no real storyline like most of the stuff I come up with......... But I'll talk about that too when I post those pictures. The chances of me actually writing or drawing any sort of story about Noland are slim, but you know. At least it exists. 8D
I secretly like to make my real world stories connected to each other. OFAV and RB:SI/A Life LIke This are in the same universe, but in different parts of the world. Foreigner might also be in the same universe, but the fact that Kor is an alien kind of ruins the whole "real world" thing so... probably not. But anyways, an example is that I want Stefan's ex-girlfriend to appear briefly in A Life Like This (it never comes up explicitly that she dated Stefan), and I planned an OFAV-RB:SI crossover when Something Impossible goes to Europe. I think if I made Noland's story, it'd be another one of those stories in that same universe with a specific connection to OFAV. It's completely unrelated to OFAV besides Noland and Stefan's past, so idk if it really counts as a spin-off of OFAV...
But anyways, I'm rambling. I'll talk more about that in a different post.
As far as life goes, prom is next week. GUH. Idk how well I'll fare since I don't really like dancing or loudness, but hopefully I'll have fun with my friends. Aside from that, I'm almost done with the school year! :V Just final exams. AP's seemed pretty okay, except my horrendous AP Physics C test. orz I think I got a 3 on both the mechanics and E&M section. AAaaaagh. ;m; I wanted to get a 4! I've only gotten an A on one of the tests in that class this year, so I don't think I did too well. orz PHYSICS, YOU WERE SO EASY LAST YEAR. WHY WERE YOU SO HARD THIS YEAR.
And um... yeah. Graduating soon. orz I'm kind of sad, because time passes by so quickly. Hopefully college will be a good experience, though. :D;
...That's about it, I guess. Yay!
Happy Memorial Day weekend, folks! :V
I just realized that Stefan is lying in the first page of OFAV. He claims that he's the contradiction to Tomato's statement of "everyone loves me," but in reality Stefan has a crush on Tomato, too.
Now, I could be a butt and claim that THE FORESHADOWING WAS MY INTENTION THE WHOLE TIME...! But it wasn't, that was just a coincidental choice of dialogue. At this point, I really can't remember if I was thinking about the fact that Stefan likes Tomato when I wrote that line. xD
By the way, I re-drew the first 4 pages of OFAV some months ago. I added the 1st page a while ago, and I want to add the rest of them sometime soon. So yep. Stay on the look out for that! :V Or don't, I'll probably just post when they're all up.
Just a quick update! :m I'm actually almost done with the next page, but I'm booked for the next couple weeks because of AP exams. "orz But hopefully an update isn't too far away.
And here's the re-drawn page, if you don't feel like going to my portfolio but still want to see it:
Hey guys! I'm back from Florida, in case you didn't gather that information from the title. I went to Universal Studios and Busch Gardens with the band and fellow orchestra students. :D I roomed with some friends with the trip, so I had a lot of fun.
I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, too. I'm not the biggest fan, but the movies are fun to watch. :D One of my friends is a huge fan, so she was really excited. She couldn't decide what to buy at the souvenir shop. xD They were selling "butter beer" there (which I is a drink from the movies/books), but DISAPPOINTMENT: it's just cream soda with whipped cream on top. I don't think my friends had ever had cream soda before, because they were quite baffled with the flavor.
Surprisingly, I went on some roller coasters. I hate roller coasters... and it's not unusual for me to just sit and wait for an entire trip at an amusement park, the while others ride the coasters. I didn't want to be a complete party pooper this time around, though... xD I didn't want to ride anything that was more than 20 feet tall, though. ._____. The scariest roller coaster I rode was the indoor roller coaster based on The Mummy movie. WEHHH. I needed to channel my fear of roller coasters into one of my characters after that...
So now Stefan has developed an inability to ride roller coasters. Sorry Stefan.
(??? Idk, it's what I do. ;u;)
The weirdest thing about the trip was the award ceremony, though. Since it was an band/orchestra trip, we had to play a concert for it to be approved by the school. We competed against about 10 other schools. But for some reason, the band managers (who were mostly in charge of the trip) told us not to cheer loudly or scream at the award ceremony. I don't normally scream in the first place, but I know it's fun for other students to do that; it seemed like the right environment to cheer loudly, too. So I found it extremely weird that they wanted us to just sit quietly and clap. I wasn't angry so much as confused, but some of the orchestra kids were ENRAGED. They ended up cheering loudly anyway, for the orchestra director.
I think the worst thing though is now there's just going to be more conflict with the band and orchestra. ;A; I don't know why there's so much rivalry.
But anyway, we won the grand prize, yo! 8D So that's good.
And that's about all I have time to say. I need to study. :M
Oh, I'm also going away again... xD on Thursday. I'll have internet access, but I might be busy.
Have a nice day everyone! Be good, and stay safe! :)
Hey, remember that wallpaper I made last year? The one with Wakusei Aoshi's awesome artwork and the lyrics that I wrote? Yep.
Well, I recorded a portion of the song JUST FOR YOU GUYS! Or because I'm bored and avoiding homework...
So yep. Have a listen, if you were ever wondering what the tune of that song was.
WARNING:: I can't sing and my microphone is horrible.
Takara wanted to see all the lyrics, so here they are (I sang from the chorus and the first verse):
Run-down, dirty, and grey.
It's kind of sad the way you're living.
I've got nowhere else to stay,
So I can stand this way of living.
I don't have to know,
I don't have to care,
I don't have to speak,
And I don't have to stare.
I know you think you're so obdurate;
You know, I agree.
I know you think I'm so insubordinate,
And I'd have to agree.
Hey, what's wrong?
I promise I can't say a single syllable.
Say what's wrong,
and I promise, I promise I'm not talking back to you.
Who cares what the higher ups will say?
[[words words words]]
What's wrong with a little direction?
[[more words, agh.]]
Waiting with my ear against the door.
And I'll think, "Finally! It's clicked inside her head."
But there's still bottles hanging 'round your bed.
[[change this part]]
Even when the solid glass stabs
The mess of tumbling feathers down your back,
Spread them out and cut the slack.
They've turned to threads, turned to threads, turned to threads.
I stayed as long as I could.
He may have looked the way that I do.
More than I should.
He's why I look the way that I do.
But you don't have to look.
You don't have to care.
You don't have to see.
You don't have to stare.
Hey, what's wrong?
I promise I can't say a single syllable.
Say what's wrong,
And I promise, I promise I'm not talking back to you.
I want to see you,
Want to see you.
Move the bangs out from your eyes so I can--
I can see you,
And your frowning face again.
You're all the way gone--not yet.
All the way gone--not yet.
All the way gone--not yet.
Almost gone, but not yet.
Almost gone, but not yet.
Kind of ridiculously long because I DON'T KNOW WHEN TO STOP...! There are lines that annoy me which I want to change. Boo yah. I never actually finished the lyrics all the way... but I almost did! HAHAHA. Maybe one day they'll be finished................... The song is actually about Tim and his mom, not Tim and Rick. But you know. WHATEVZ!
I also have an unfinished song about Stef and Gabe lying around somewhere, but the tune is goofy and the lyrics are weird, so I don't like it as much. :V But who knows, maybe that one will surface onto theO some day, too...!
And yep. I have a picture to upload, but I don't feel like scanning right now. ;u; Sorry. I'll upload it soon, though!
Oh, and I'm going to Florida from Thursday until Monday on an orchestra trip. So... yeah. Won't be online, then. :M;
Also, my birthday's this month. ;D *hint hint*
(jk about the hint hint-ing. But it is my birthday this month.)
Hey guys! I'm on spring break! :D YEAH. Now I can act like I'm going to accomplish something, and just blow everything off in reality. -u-
I think I'll do a big long post today since I haven't posted in here in forever. :D
I'm going prom dress shopping today. .u. Did you know my friends are forcing me to go to prom? ... Yeah, they are. I don't think it'll be too bad, but the reasons I don't really want to go to prom are:
I don't know how to dance
I don't like pop music
I don't know how to dance to pop music even less than I don't know how to dance in general
I am paranoid about people spiking the punch or something. (IT'S SCARY, OKAY...)
My friends wanted me to go to all night grad party as well as prom, but I compromised with them and got away with just going to prom. -u-b I would probably like prom better if they got a live band to play the pop music or something, but Takara says our school always gets DJs. When she went to prom last year, the only slow song they played was Halo by Beyonce. (How do you slow dance to that? xD;)
Not that slow dancing is something I'm looking forward to. I'm just going with my friends.
As far as dresses go, I kind of want a short dress... because in general, I just like short dresses more than long dresses. And they're usually cheaper. So I might be a rebel, and wear a short dress to prom. (People will think I'm a junior or something... ;u;)
So... yep. That's what's going on with that.
In other news (?), my teacher liked my poem about Stefan and is submitting it to this book that publishes poems from high school students. (She chose 10 poems total.) SO YEAH, I might be published possibly...! I actually haven't told anyone yet, because I kept forgetting. It might be weird to randomly bring it up now, though, because she told me nearly a month ago. xD
I made a cheesecake yesterday! :D For Japanese class. I had to translate a recipe into Japanese, and bring in some for the class. I chose cheesecake, because it's one of the few things I can make. xD The people who ate it seemed like they liked it, so that's good. One guy told me he loved me. Aw, yeah. Power of cheesecake.
Everyone else made really good food too, but we only had half an hour to eat and no drinks... so I felt really nauseous trying to eat everyone's food. "orz I wish Sensei would have given us more time, so I could have enjoyed it. ;u;
For some reason, I really want to sing this song. If I ever have a moment by myself in the house, I'll record myself trying to learn the lyrics (which are not in Japanese) and sing to you in my fairy voice. (??)
And... yep. That's pretty much it. I might want to type up some more character profiles today, so you might get a couple of those in your backroom. :D So... sorry. Or yay. You choose.
I have to use the bathroom now! :V See ya, and have a nice weekend~ :)
