I just spent the last two hours chatting with [livejournal.com profile] herbeautifullie and skyping with [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer. Our conversations ranged from making fun of bad fic (buttery what?!) to waxing nostalgic about the fandom good old days. Much laughter occurred.

Thanks for making my night, ladies ♥

In other news, the new SPN big bang fic is a go. I got permission from the mods and the original prompter today. Sam/Jess/Dean, here I come *headdesk* Save me now.

As most of you probably remember, [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer came to visit me for a week earlier this month. We had an AWESOME time (as we always do :D).

My awesome vacation )

Took the GREs this morning. I wouldn't sat I bombed it, but I did not do well, or at least not as well as I'd hoped. I'm going to wait to decide whether or not I want to take it again (third time's the charm?) once my final scores come in the mail. I know I did well on the essays, at least (or at least I think I did, we'll see what those pesky scorers have to say about it) so I'm hoping that bumps my score up some.

Too bad the whole thing wasn't just essays. I'm pretty sure I would have rocked it then. Me and Standardized tests have never played well together. I'm talking ever, like since I was in grade school.

Sigh. Maybe I'll just go to a school in Vancouver, then I won't need GRE scores.

--

I ended up having some free time Sunday and met [livejournal.com profile] acoustics1220 downtown. We hung out at The Olive Tree (one of my favorite restaurants ever, [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer don't be surprised if I drag you there, too) and talked for a while. She is awesome :D I'll definitely come visit you in TX some time ♥

--

The Pride Parade was incredible on Sunday. I didn't even go, just passed it while I was walking down 34th Street getting some last minute shopping done for the coming weekend. I AM SO PROUD OF MY STATE ♥

--

Other than that, I worked until 7:30 tonight and while I am now exhausted, it was nice and quiet after 5, so I got a lot of work done.

AND THERE ARE ONLY FOUR DAYS UNTIL I VISIT MY BRAIN TWIN. I CAN'T WAIT.

I got a new phone today - my old battery would barely hold a charge, and I had a free upgrade.

I ended up getting the Samsung Fascinate, and my brother (aka The Wise Droid Samurai) told me he would show me some tricks.

When I gave him my phone, I was on the computer talking to Laura, but I was still logged in on the phone. So my brother saw the conversation. And decided he was going to get in on it.

The following conversation transpired (as transcribed by Laura):

Me: my brother is being mean
and my cat is being mushy
Laura: :(
well :( to the brother
Me: he wont teach me how to use my phone
Laura: HAHAH
Me: SHUT UP
LOL this conversation is is popping up on my phone
so my bro saw the frowny face XD
Laura: hehehe
LOL
yeaaahhh
sorry
Me: lol he doesnt care
Him: This it her brother
Hello
Laura: ...you call yourself an it?
Him: Id7
Is*
Laura: LOL
Him: It was a typo
Me: my bro is messaging you from the phone
just so you know
Laura: oh I know
Him: Wats up jacys friend?
Laura: LOL
The name is Laura
Him: Hi laura my name is mike(<--not the real name)
Him: Lol my name is ****
Laura: I knew from her talking about you before.
And apparently you're reading her email. Watch out for the porn.
Him: Wat kind?
Blond
Brunet
Role play
Lmao
Laura: She goes for the Edward Cullen look-a-likes, sparkles and all.
Him: Dam
I would rather some hermione action then bella
Lol
Laura: Bella is WAY too whiny
Hermione's too smart for her
Him: But hotter
Laura: If you want a decent female to pair with Hermione, choose Elena from Vampire Diaries. She looks like Bella but without the self-centered bitchiness.
Him: Nice
Laura: Thanks.
Him: U noe who else might be good just cause of her sexy/kinky dress? Bellatrix
Laura: And Bellatrix is just this side of psycho to go for it.
Although the whole "I hate Mudbloods" could be a problem.
Him: Shel get over it
Lol
Laura: only if Voldemort tells her to
Him: Lol
I have to go it was nice conversating have a good nite
Laura: night!

*brother hands back phone*

Me: "You need to show me how to use my phone"
Brother: "I did"
Me: "no you didnt, you stopped to talk to Laura"
Brother: "I got distracted by the idea of naked Hermione and the crazy chick. really gets me going. I'll give her a love potion. or two..."

XD XD XD

FIC REC

jacyevans: (buffy // choice)
My darling [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer has posted her fic for [livejournal.com profile] vampirebigbang. It is a Buffy/Twilight crossover featuring Buffy, Dawn, and most of the "Twilight" cast. If you've read "Twilight" and have ever made a sparkly vampire joke, then this fic is for you - Buffy and Dawn's token biting wit shines through, saying everything you thought while you were reading. ([livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey, I think you would particularly enjoy the conversation between Buffy and Bella about vampire boyfriends.) An original concept with everyone refreshingly in character, and Laura has a way with Buffy's dialogue that makes you swear you were watching an episode from the show - try to read the scene between she and Sam without giggling. I dare you. She also writes twists like few other writers I know are able - ones I wouldn't dream of spoiling (ones she would shoot me for daring to speak of.)

If you are even just slightly familiar with one or both of these fandoms, give this fic a shot. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Displaced
Author's Summary: When Seers in a coven associated with the new Watcher’s Council sense high supernatural activity in Forks, Washington, Buffy and Dawn are sent to determine the cause, which turns out to be more than the garden variety Hellmouth: an entirely new breed of wolf shapeshifters and vampires with superpowers, one who has a human girlfriend with a story dangerously similar to her own. Buffy is set on protecting Bella - both from ravenous, nomad vampires and from the mistake of falling in love with Edward.

But protecting Bella is harder than she thought it would be, especially when Buffy has promises and secrets of her own to keep.

  • First off, *MASSIVE HUGS* to my darling [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer. This is most definitely not a brain twin win, bb. Not in the least. Much love to you, and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers ♥ ♥ ♥

  • I have a new layout that I love and adore - [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans - and a new profile layout as well. Woot for kick-ass women. Also, I think my banner lyric may be my new favorite lyric from a song ever.

  • I signed up for driver's ed today. Well... okay, I'm lying. I looked into it. I priced classes so that when I have the money, I can sign up. I also need to get the correct prescription on the lenses for my glasses and get my permit renewed in the interim. My brother said he would take me driving (in my father's car - HAH!). But I have to take at least 5 classes before Dad will let me behind the wheel. It's cool. At least it won't cost me $650 *winces*

  • I did sign up for a few yoga classes, something I have wanted to do for a while but never got around to doing (aka I was too lazy). Eventually, I need to look into swimming lessons so I can get SCUBA certified, but that will be later. I know a few of the local YMCAs have private lessons. We'll see what happens down the road. I need to make sure to put some money into savings. I haven't since before last Christmas, and it's almost September. And I need to not be broke when I go to Arkansas next month. And I have my quarterly loan coming up, too...

  • Ugh. I hate money. But I'm going to be under a strict budget as soon as I get back from AR. I already worked everything out so I know exactly how much I have to play with. It's not much - but I figure if I know in advance and start saving and stop spending on crap I don't need, maybe I'll actually start seeing a change in my account balance that isn't ten bucks/in the red.

  • As an addendum to this, does anyone know of any cheap(ish) health insurance that I can look into? Apparently, I am not eligible for medicaid (let's not even go there) or a lot of the cheaper city plans here in NY. And I just can't afford what I'm paying my Dad right now to reimburse him for mine.

  • This makes me sad. And really, really angry. I try not to let my political show on this journal, but I saw this and found myself fuming.

  • I started a new fic (hahaha, a new fic, that's funny...) last week. It was spurred on by an idea I had re-watching "Salvation", and sort of took off when I wasn't expecting it to in a completely different direction than I originally intended when I typed up the first few plot points. It's a style I've wanting to try for a while but never really had the right idea to put it into action. It's a Supernatural fic (shocker), seven years post-Season 5, mostly gen, and sort of different from what I usually write, but I'm really excited about it. I'm just hoping I can execute it the way I see it in my head.

  • I am halfway tempted to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] harrypotterbang. Somebody stop me.

  • Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar: Ask me my Top Five Whatevers - fannish or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post. Possibly with pictures.

  • I may have had a bit too much to drink tonight. Mike's Hard Pomegranate Punch=Yummy.

  • The weather outside is gorgeous. It may be raining, but it's in the 70s and windy and cool and I love it. It needs to be like this all the time.

THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE I WILL BE VISITING [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer IN AUGUST! THIS DESERVES JOY AND SNOOPY DANCES AND STREAMERS AND CONFETTI AND RAINBOWS AND PUPPIES AND SAM WINCHESTER NAKED (INSIDE JOKE!) AND LOTS OF OTHER HAPPY-MAKING THINGS! *KLINGS*

I can't remember the last time I was on vacation - not just a weekend getaway, but a real-live, here's my slip, I need permission because I'm taking the week off VACATION. I know I was still in college, because I haven't taken one since I graduated. It might have been my Spring Break trip to Florida... God, my Sophomore year. Jesus, has it really been that long? I could never afford that many days off before - still can't, really - but I need them, and Laura and I were talking, and she said "You could always come here," and it was funny, because I was already seriously considering it... and it all sort of snowballed from there.

So, keep your fingers crossed for me. And find me some Xanax and/or some Dramamine for the plane. Because ya'll know how well I do with flying...

My body has decided that the ass-crack of dawn (literally) is an AWESOME time to be waking up. Without fail, I've been waking up around 4:45 every morning this week. Now, this made sense Monday and Tuesday - my body has been on a pretty regular 4 or 7-hour clock since my last year of college, and I was passing out at 9:30. Yesterday, I was up until 11.

My thoughts: "Hey, I can set my alarm for 6, I'll be up before it anyway, but no way will I be up before 5!"

My body: "Hahahahaha!"

...yeah. 4:30 -_- Not on, brain. Not. On. I forced myself to fall back to sleep, but I know better and should have just rolled out of bed. I felt over-exhausted and miserable when I woke up again at 5:45. Days like this I wish I could down a shot of expresso and not have to worry about migraine backlash and caffiene withdrawal headaches. *sighs*

My [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang is... coming. Slowly. I'm honestly trying to figure out how the hell I managed to finish the damn thing last year between work and whatever the hell else I had to do. And this year, I have even less time before my posting date, and I'll be honest - I'm less motivated. It's not that I don't love the story, because I do, or that I think it's not original - because I do - I just feel like it's overwhelming me. The story, the changes I have to make. Everything. And with less than three weeks before my posting date, that's not a place I should or need to be right now.

I need a swift kick in the ass.

30 Day TV and Music Meme

Day 04 → Your favorite show ever

*snorts* Like this even requires an ounce of thought. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I pretty much grew up with that show - when it first aired, my mom thought I was too young to watch, so I would sneak over to a friend's house to watch the re-runs that aired on the weekends. By Season 2, she just told me to watch it on the TV in the basement because she didn't want to watch it. By Season 5 I had her hooked. I marked a lot of my life milestones with Buffy, as silly as that may sound - when she graduated, so did I (from grade school, but still...) When the show ended, I graduated high school. And the show definitely got me through a lot of personal rough patches. Plus, it was one half of my first fandom (the other half being Harry Potter) and without it I wouldn't have met [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer. And THEN where would I be!

Day 04 → A song that makes you sad

By Season 2, she just told me to watch it on the TV in the basement because she didn't want to watch it. By Season 5 I had her hooked. I marked a lot of my life milestones with Buffy, as silly as that may sound - when she graduated, so did I (from grade school, but still...) When the show ended, I graduated high school. And the show definitely got me through a lot of personal rough patches. Plus, it was one half of my first fandom (the other half being Harry Potter) and without it I wouldn't have met [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer. And THEN where would I be!
