Yo! I'm back from Orlando! 8D
I forgot to mention I left to go to Florida for the weekend, but... yeah. We went to Universal Studios thing, mainly for the Harry Potter attractions. 8D I'm not really one for rides, but seeing all of the Harry Potter buildings and stuff was really neat!! But souvenirs were butt expensive. There were these Hogwarts house button down cardigans that were really cute, but also 80 DOLLARS. GHAHGHG. I should've bought like a Hufflepuff tie at least, though. :T They were like 30 dollars, which is actually about the same price as a normal tie...
Speaking of ties, I bought a 12 dollar tie from this random H&M that had a randomly huge men's section. I wish all H&Ms had HUGE MEN'S SECTIONS because their suit coats, ties, shirts and stuff are actually pretty decently priced for business clothing. >:V I've never actually tried on their jackets, but the collared shirts fit me pretty decently. THANKS, H&M, FOR HAVING CLOTHES FOR SMALL MEN THAT A SKINNY CHICK LIKE ME CAN FIT INTO.
Anyway, there's that random tangent. Idk if I've ever mentioned my interest in wearing business clothing, but yeah.
It's Stefan's fault, basically. 8D
BUT UH. YEP. I'm on winter break, now! I've started working on my Secret Santa drawing, so HOPEFULLY! THAT'LL BE UP SOON! I'll try not to get it on like the 30th, like I did last year;;; and I'm also doing the coloring digitally, so I won't have to deal with my grandma's hilarious scanner. -u-b I'm having a lot of fun with it so far, though! *U* Soon, my Santaling... you shall see your drawing from your Santa....
(note: Santaling = person who receives a gift from a secret Santa, I guess.)
Hm. Not sure what else to say here. I guess I'll mention that my grades for the semester are looking decent so far! 8D I've only gotten two, but whatever. My British Literature 1 class was an A-, which is great because that class was hard as a butt. :I BUT YEAH. NOW I NEVER HAVE TO ATTEMPT TO READ PARADISE LOST EVER AGAIN...
My other grade was a B+ in Natural Psychology, which is decent. I had this professor last semester, and I got a B+ in his class back then, too. MAN. I wanted to at least get an A- this time. ;u; BUT OH WELL. SO CLOSE.
And uh... yeah. I think that's about it. I'll be traveling on Christmas Eve and Christmas, so I might be a little silent those days. BUT! I'll try to be active and comment and stuff this break. *U* My backroom's getting pretty active b/c of all the secret Santa stuff, so I'm gonna go comment on some of that stuff now.
Happy holidays everyone, and have a nice break!!
Mood: study butts.
I want to make a new icon for myself, but idk what to make it of! >:M I've been using this Stefan one that king-sama made for me for quite a while... which I still like, but I THINK IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW. *-*
Idk what to make it of, though. Most likely one of my characters, but idk which on.
Speaking of characters, I made a list of my currently "active" characters, the other day. :m (Active meaning I think about them and their story.) ...I guess I'll just post the list here, 'cause WHY NOT. This is my world.
Character list (by story)
* = fairly active
# of girls: 2
# of boys: 5
# of other: 1
=My Dear Princess=
=Teach Me Something Good + the college timeline=
-Amelia (Stefan's girlfiend)
# of girls: 4
# of boys: 1
=Nerdy and Jock=
-Brodney's Girlfriend (no name yet)
# of girls: 3
# of boys: 4
=TWEWY (not all related story-wise)=
-Jun Oomiya (O. J's real name/normal self)
# of boys: 13
# of girls: 12
# of other: 1
Yeah. So if you've been subscribed to me for a while, you might've noticed that the A Life Like This and Rock Band characters are missing. I've basically given up on those two stories, because I can't find them particularly interesting, anymore... Dare might stick around, but I can't really think of any sort of story that I want to invest in regarding him. So I left him off the list, too. :c
I also didn't include the Dreams characters here, either, because as much as I would like to work on that story, fantasy stories just require too much of my time. orz ONE DAY, I'LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT FOR LULI, ALCOTT, MS. MARIGOLD, AND THAT WHOLE LOT...
So yep. There might be a couple characters you don't recognize in this list, but shmeh. I'll talk about them some other time. Or you can ask in the comments and I'll blab about my characters to you! 8D Hahaha.
I also included a male-to-female ratio here because idk, I was just interested in seeing how many girl characters I have. I'm actually surprised that it's this even. :U It's mostly Teach Me Something Good that's keeping it balanced, because Noland is like the only male character. (WHICH BOTHERS ME A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE IT CAN SEEM LIKE A HAREM STORY AT FIRST GLANCE, OR SOMETHING...!!!) There's actually one other male character (Chrystal's art teacher), but he doesn't have a design yet. I imagine him as this crusty old man who's in love with his cat. (??? this probably doesn't make any sense.)
...Anyway, I'm not really talking about anything anymore. GOTTA GO STUDY! Have a swell week, my friends.
Mood: In need of sleep
Heyooooo. :V Just wanted to let you guys know that I started scanning the last 5 pages of Good Morning, Good Morning, so I should have those up sometime this week. ;o Maybe even tomorrow, who knows! WHO KNOWS!!
Just thought I'd put up a little update for no particular reason. :^D LET'S HAVE A GREAT WEEK, Y'ALL.
ALRIGHT. WISHLIST TIME! This is for this year's Fan Art Secret Santa. :^D Exciting!
Anyway, here's the stuff I want, in order of interest. (Note: probably... a lot of boys love... S-SORRY IF YOU'RE NOT INTO THAT;;;)
1) Art of my characters! My favorite characters individually are:
BUT! If you choose to draw a couple (WHICH I WOULD LOVE SO MUCH♥♥♥), my favorite couple is Stefan and Gabe, who I linked to above. You can browse art of them together here, if you want to get an idea of how they interact. :V
Other couple-y stuff of my characters that I'm interested in getting art of are Noland (linked above) with Prue (though they're more of a close friendship than an actual couple); and Ned and Jack (who have a sort of comic series here that you can read to acquaint yourself with them).
Also, if you want to design your own outfit for them, that's TOTALLY COOL WITH ME! *u*b
2) Kotetsu and Barnaby from Tiger and Bunny! (idk I'm having trouble finding normal ref images, aha;;;)
If you draw one of them individually, I'd probably prefer to see Barnaby. ;o But I'd love if you drew both of them together!! *u* And it doesn't even have to be romantic, I really love seeing art of the two of them just being buddies. :,D (I do ship them, though, so if you want to go the romance route, then go for it. Haha.)
3) Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4! I love tough punk guys who are actually really cute babies. If you were to draw a cute blushing Kanji, that would be great. I mean it. I MEAN IT.
4) Spock, Kirk, and McCoy from Star Trek! I would love seeing all three of them together, but since I know that's pretty tough, you can draw any of them individually. (Also, I'm more used to the TOS actors than the reboot actors, so if you choose to draw any of them, I'd like it if you went off of the original actors as reference! *u*)
5) And lastly, the obligatory Marth and Roy option. (I-i just can't bear to take them off the list, after all these years... ;u;) If you choose to draw both of them or one of them, I'd love to see them in cute winter fashion! *u* With earmuffs and scarves and stuff. You don't have to do that, but it would be fantastic if you did. xD
Hope this isn't too much to choose from! ;u; Sorry for the lack of girl options, I tend to like guy characters more than girl characters;;; Anyway, thank you in advance, Secret Santa!! :D ♥
This feels like it should be in my Various Planning world, but TOO BAD.
I made a character over the summer named Charlotte Han, as part of the Nerdy and Jock cast. I used the name because I didn't think I had a character with the name Charlotte, yet...
BUT ACTUALLY, I DID...!!!
This lady, from 2009:
I TOTALLY FORGOT HER NAME WAS CHARLOTTE! I knew she was a character of mine because I occasionally remember the characters from her story (Isaac, Falorin, Hrafn...) but HER NAME! HER NAME IS CHARLOTTE! HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN...!
Part of the reason I forgot her name was Charlotte is because at the time I made her, I had a friend named Charlotte. It's weird for me to think that I named a character the same name as one of my friends... although, I did sort of name Tim after someone I sort of knew. Except he wasn't really my friend, just an acquaintance.
Anyway, if I ever keep up with the My Dear Princess story (which I probably won't, because I have trouble with fantasy stories), I'll probably change Older Charlotte's name.
Also, I drew a picture of Nerdy and Jock Charlotte, today! >:V
These kinds of outfits are ridiculous, but extremely fun. I tried sketching with the brush tool this time, and I really like the outcome. I might do sketches like this more often! :V
Yeah. I'm really behind on posting pictures to theO from my tumblr, but I'll get around to it soon. -u-b HAVE A NICE EVENING, Y'ALL!
