So, in the interest of preserving the cultural record or what-have-you, I created a Dreamwidth account (username is tomatocages). Time will tell w/r/t usage, but for now: testing, t-e-s-t-i-n-g 1,2,3.

A lot of stuff is happening and I have a lot of feelings, so! In no particular order:

+ My sister got engaged! She says I am her maid of honor and I can wear whatever I want. So that's cool. 

+ I am officially applying for the PhD, so between that and finals for the semester (due date for the app and exams are AT THE SAME TIME), I shouldn't be on el-jay at all, but probably will be anyway. Naturally I want to write ALL THE FIC about Young Justice, which brings me to ---->

+YOUNG JUSTICE apparently wants to make me regret that I'm not a robot. Everyone who's anyone has already talked about how <i>Failsafe</i> is devastating, so I won't add my thoughts to the mess. But in case you haven't made up your mind about this show (seriously, it's 20 minutes long and amazing, please watch it), [livejournal.com profile] memlu has a new comix blog AND a review of Friday's episode (see A Speeding Bullet for the deets). 

+ Yes, I know no one reads this, but whatever. 

+ I mentioned this to [livejournal.com profile] torigates already, but just so everyone knows: I had to read the 1930s Superman comix for class, and Clark Kent/Superman is just  not toward. Lois Lane can do better, you guys!

I got nothing else.

Do people still do introductory posts? (Do I really need to do one?) I dunno, but I guess I’ll take a stab at it.

That seems like as good a place as any to stop. I’m happy to answer any questions you have, to the best of my ability.

Because I have no self control and also wasn't allowed to watch TV when I was little*, I started listening to [livejournal.com profile] mekosuchinae when she talked about Young Justice. And then I watched a couple episodes of Young Justice.

You guys. This show is the best show.

Also, the three people who I've noticed like the show all say the same thing, which is that the fandom for it is terrible, and full of lady-haters. And it's true! I'm so upset about it! But I'm clearly the kind of person who imprints on M'Gann as soon as she appears on screen, because she is made of magic and wears a cardigan. But the show is better even than M'gann, because even the dudes are hilarious, in the way that fifteen-year-olds are dweeby and hilarious! I can find this behavior cute because I have never talked to a fifteen-year-old boy.

It's so awkward and endearing that even my terrible second-hand embarrassment syndrome is vanquished. I'm in love.

*I'm actually not upset about not watching TV when I was small, I wouldn't have appreciated it the way I do now.

 So I’m back, I suppose, which is funny because six years ago I thought, this is a pretty small thing to give up. And then my life fell apart (as it has a way of doing) and I spent some time picking up the pieces, and then I decided I wasn’t too embarrassed about coming back, which is, I suppose, a sign of real personal growth. Or something.


These things take time, and right now I live with way too many people, but there’s something nice about continuity. Fifteen dollars worth of nice, in this case, but that’s about what I got from my tax return and I’m not paying rent, so I took it as a sign.

Six years is a pretty long time—it is, literally, a quarter of my life—and there’s a lot of stuff I don’t remember from the (epic?) 2003-2006-ish era. But here’s the plan, for the here and now: I need to write again, and I need to ramble on about things, if only for the sake of personal therapy, and perhaps the sake of having a record for when I got to confession. So this is gonna be fairly heavily locked down, for the sake of my perceived privacy, though commentary is, frankly, kind of welcome. I’m working on setting up a fic journal in the next week or so, so I think you can pretty safely bypass this if you’re of a mind to.
