Day 4: What is your most prized possession? Why do you value it? How did you come across it?

My most prized possession tends to change from time to time; for the longest time, for years, my journal was my most prized possession, because there was so much of me in it. And then, my computer was my most prized possession, because at the time, fanfiction was becoming an important part of my life and I had all of my favourites saved to my computer. And now, my most prized possession is my phone, for a combination of every reason.

I don't really do much paper journaling anymore, because typing is so much faster and easier to accomplish. I don't read much fanfiction at home anymore, not with it so readily available on my phone to be read anytime I'm out of the house and in a situation where the escape is most welcome. It holds my own personal fanfic, my journal, my social media outlets, music (not so much of it on my phone, due to space issues; I have my music loaded onto my ipod which is a very important possession but less so, considering that music is all I really use it for these days) and recorded videos.

I came across it in much the same way that anyone does, catching up with the times and such. It cost me a lot of money, but do I regret it? Not a chance.

Day 3: History. What stories do you know about your ancestors? What traits do you admire in them? What do you want future generations to remember about you? What do you want to be known for when you leave the world?

Okay, so obviously, I have not kept up with this daily challenge. I am terrible at this kind of stuff, and I think the longest I have ever kept up with a daily challenge has been, like, five or six days. I am going to try and get back into doing this regularly, on a daily, or even every other day, basis. I will not conquer this creative block if I don't get out there and, you know, fucking create.

On another note, I did manage to plow through several hundred words (I didn't count, but my guess is 400-600) the other day. Was I writing fanfic? No. But I did get some world-building done with my Love Bites au (also how hard is it for me to write Axel and Saïx in a healthy fucking relationship?????).

Anyway, onto the challenge.

Most of what I know about my ancestors are just anecdotes and random little stories, and only from the ancestors that are still alive. I don't believe I have any ancestors that are famous or truly remarkable other than just, you know, existing and doing their own thing. I do have an uncle however; an uncle who for the longest time wrote for Sports Illustrated, and eventually published a novel. A piece of "fiction" with basis from his childhood.

One story in particular that I remember hearing about as a kid was the time that my grandpa found a praying mantis cocoon and brought it to the church, where it then proceeded to hatch.

I honestly though that was the jist of it. They brought it to the church and it hatched, releasing hundreds of baby praying mantises in the church. I did not know that this happened, however, during sunday mass.

I'm just going to include the screenshots I took of this particular anecdote from my uncle's book.
screenshot dump )

I really don't admire anyone's traits, simply because I don't know enough of my ancestors/relatives to really see any defining traits. I see them occasionally on holidays and that's really about it.

As for future generations? I know it sounds odd, but I'm not sure I really want to be remembered, not for anything great anyway. I'm not sure there's really anything that great about me to be remembered for. I'll be remembered as a sort of internet presence and that's really about all I have to offer. Maybe write some stories and draw some art that get recognized, but other than that? I can't really say.

Day 2: Happiness. What is your own secret for happiness? If you had to sum up your ideas, what one word would you use to describe how to be truly happy?

There is no secret to my happiness because I don't think I've ever been truly happy. I've been content, but that contentness has always been undershadowed by other issues; poverty, mental instability, and other things.

The secret to my contentness has been, well, just doing what I do best, I guess. Writing and drawing and losing myself in the fictional worlds of video games and tv shows.

I really can't elaborate on this further.

Day 1: Branding. What single word describes your personality? How does it affect you as a writer? Are you whimsical, gregarious, or fierce?


So this is a thirty-day writing challenge, but I was only able to find the first ten days so this is going to be a ten day writing challenge I guess?

I can't seem to find the motivation to write every day on my own so I've saved several writing challenges that will hopefully get me going with enough steam to get back into the writing habits I used to have.

It seems almost unfair to ask me to pick just one single word to describe my personality. Am I whimsical? Yes, to an extent. I like whimsy and happiness, but I also have a rather prevalent dark side. Am I fierce? To an extent. I am also a pushover; if a pushy person tries to shove their way into the spotlight I will almost definitely let them. I am a complex being and trying to confine myself to one trait and one trait alone is an impossible task.

However, since this is a writing challenge, and the question asks specifically how this trait affects my writing style, I will say that a prevalent trait is that I am... predictably unpredictable.

Yes, that is two words, but it is what I am going with.

This does describe me as a person as well as my writing style; "random" seems too teenage scene kid of a descriptor, so predictably unpredictable seems to be the closest thing I can come to in order to whittle my personality down to a single trait.

I'm unpredictable in the sense that I'm probably going to make a joke of a situation or say something that nobody is going to expect, but predictable in the sense that, most people have come to know this unpredictability? To the point that I'll crack a joke and someone will pause beforehand and go "I knew you were going to do that," after I do it. Does that even make sense?

It affects my writing similarly, in that I don't write your typical fanfic. I like writing things that turn up on their asses, where you're either laughing your ass off or just sitting there like "what the fuck did I just read???" And like, people have come to expect this kind of thing from me? They know beforehand the kind of thing they could probably get before they even click the readmore.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 7 -Cosplaying.

Team Rocket AkuRoku

This was supposed to be a but more humerous, but I still feel sick enough to not really give a fuck.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 6 -Wearing each other’s clothes.

I probably could have made more of an effort on this one, but my materials were a little limited, so, yeah.

This is the last one for a few days because I have like eight or nine more doodles already done, but they’re all out of order and I want to do a few more of the missing ones before posting anymore.

Which won’t happen for a few days because Dream Drop Distance.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 4 -On a date.

Axel’s head looks weird.

ALSO LET ME GO AHEAD AND POST THIS EARLY BECAUSE TUMBLR ALREADY DID IT FOR ME. FUCKING YESTERDAY.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 3 -Gaming/watching a movie

Wow, this turned out way cartoony.

GODDAMMIT ROXAS THAT SHIRT IS IMPOSSIBLE WHOEVER DESIGNED IT NEEDS TO BE SHOT.

Anyway, I think too many people overlook the friendship aspect of AkuRoku so this one is a little less kissy-kissy and a bit more friendship oriented.

Of course though, the loser has to bottom for a week.

Cross-posted into a cut on my sticky post (and to deviantART of course), just so I don't have to go searching through my journal or tags to find these lists.

A few months ago (before I killed my computer), I took up the 100 themes challenge on deviantART with the intention of doing half as drawings and half as fan fiction one-shots. But as I've been doing this, I've noticed a trend where I'm incorporating the themes from certain songs into the drawings as well. So in addition to 100 themes, I'm also doing a 100 songs challenge, which is basically just 100 random (and not-so-random) songs from my playlist. Some of the themes and songs so far have been incorporated with each other, while others are standing alone, but the themes and songs that I have completed are crossed out (but only on the sticky post); I'm just not saying which ones have been incorporated with eachother.

Day 2: Your first love, in great detail

Since there isn't really a person that can take that title, I figure I'll take about my art, since that's my first love.

It all started when I was just a little mini Spoony. I can't tell when exactly I started drawing, but I do remember hiding behind the recliner, peeling crayons and doodling on random pieces of construction paper. After a while, I was given scissors and tape, and the doodling soon turned into twelve-foot rainbow dinosaur tails and three-dimentional horses and dinosaurs (I had a fascination with dinosaurs).

As I grew, my drawings grew with me; most of my art involved animals and dinosaurs and as I started middle school, I discovered anime.

I have always watched anime, ever since I was a wee little Spoony Monster, but it was before the word "anime" ever made its way into my vocabulary. My favorite shows, that I absolutely could not miss, were Speed Racer, G-Force, and Voltron, but as I went through sixth grade, Cartoon Network started playing Sailor Moon and Dragonball Z and Tenchi Muyo and that's when I started to incorporate the anime style into my artwork.

I got into Pokemon in the seventh grade, and that's when my art turned into exclusively anime. Or maybe I should say exclusively Pokemon -sweatdrop- Until this point, I had mostly drawn animals, and I even drew anthro for a while (this was before the word "furry" was in my dictionary, and I'm not particularly fond of furry right now at the moment), but at this point, I started drawing people a lot more (after all, all the Pokemon I drew had to have trainers, right?).

There's not much more to say about that time p[eriod, so I'll skip forward a few years.

In high school, I got into the whole "goth" thing (naively, and completely cluelessly), and like any self respected "goth" I found Jhonen Vasquez.

By this point, I had created my very first original character that stayed with me (and he still has), and though the first style I drew Bradley in was very simple, by the time I had re-vamped him the first time, he had gained a very JTHM appearance, and that's how he was drawn for a while; as a JTHM copycat.

But when I moved back to Ohio after graduating, I lost any and all access to the internet which is where I got most of my reference images, and due to the lack of money needed to obtain the internet (or a decent computer that could connect) and comic books, I spent most of my time doodling and drawing. many more oc's came into existence (such as Penny Zombie) and my art style started to go into its own direction. Charaters became less skin and bone and more fleshed out, and my poses started to become less flat.

After a while, I started to revert back to anime, I think right around the time that I got obsessive over video games. Money was becoming less of an issue, so I was able to buy more comics, manga and magazines so I had more reference images to work with, and again, I began copying styles when I doodled random fan art in random sketchbooks and notebooks. It all started to blend together again into my own manga style.

Then I went without drawing for a while. I don't know why, I just knew I stopped drawing. Art block maybe? I don't know.

But I picked up my pencil again, I think it was AkuRoku Day last year (2009) when I drew this picture.

And the rest of the story can be told under the cut (but mostly because it took me two days to write this stupid thing and to upload the images into my scrapbook so I could finish this stupid meme, and I don't feel like writing anymore).

Day One: Introduce Yourself in Great Detail

I don't know if it can get any more detailed than what my sticky post says, but to avoid just copying and pasting my sticky post, which I would otherwise just do; I guess I'll just try and write a paragraph or two, just for the purposes of this meme.

Hi. I'm spoony monster. Yes, that's lower-cased, because I'm lazy and reaching my finger over to press in the SHIFT button just seems like too much work. I am a grammar nazi, and I have way too many typos in my own work, mainly because I suck at typing, and I'm too lazy to go back and fix them. Oh,did I mention I was lazy? I spend too much time on the internet, usually here on LiveJournal and deviantART, but I won't bother with sneaking the links into this post because, again, you can find them at the top of my sticky post.

I'm just another pervy fangirl, who likes to spend all her time writing and drawing her favorite characters macking on eachother, as you can very well see if you search through my journal.

I work at a job I hate (I don't really hate it, but it still irks me), and I've been there for five years now.

I don't really know what else to write in here, so I'll leave it here for now. Ad that's who I am in (not-so) great detail.
