The Darkest Hour

Oh, my god. This movie was amazing. Just... oooooh, the CGI made me melt, there was a surprising amount of humor, and it was just brilliant and perfect and damn interesting. As for the science, it actually seems legit. But that just may be me and my love of Faraday cages.

GO SEE IT. NOW. And check out the website and read the comic they have. It's actually really interesting.

Off to go immerse myself in more Sherlock fics.


My first post in ages, and it's this...

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Lo! Who is that, stalking out of the freeway! It is Freyathedark, hands clutching a sharpened screwdriver! And with a booming roar, her voice cometh:

"I'm seriously going to fuck you for such a long time, I will be high on life for years to come!"

Find out!

Yeah.  Stole it from amarissia .  This... god, this has so many things that could be done with it. 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go mend my broken heart by doing just this to Dagoth Ur.

This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.

This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.

It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

Looking for Fic

I'm looking for the fic "Deeper Understanding" by thestaci and I can't find it anywhere! I know she deleted her journal, but I'm hoping that somewhere out there, someone was able to save it before it went poof. Can anyone help me?

In other news, it's insanely hot here. My brain is pretty much melted, so I can't think of anything interesting to say here.

How Should I Format Game Restart: New Platform?

Just the story, release the prologue/epilogue seperately
The story, plus the two endings
The story with beginning and endings
I don't care
Other (please comment)

Because I can't really decide how I want to do it.  I was thinking of releasing it with the side stories as one file, but I don't know if some of you prefer having the side stories seperate.  I can do it multiple ways, I just thought I'd find out how most people would prefer it.

In other news, I'm officially having too much fun putting fics on my Kindle.  I now have around 97 fanfics on it - about 6 Roy/Ed, and most of the rest FF7 with a fair amount of Seifer/Squall tossed in.  So expect to see other fics from other authors coming as well, if I get off my ass and ask for permission to do so.

My new favorite ARG starts today!  I'm coordinating web support for Vegas and Chicago, it'll be tons of fun!  In the unlikely event that someone reading my journal lives in Denver, would you mind horribly registering and then following the instruction?  Let the people on Unfiction Forums know, it would be a huuuuge help!


Return from the Dead

It probably comes as a great shocker to some of you that I am, in fact, alive and posting. Real Life has been kicking my ass lately, and the fact that I'm now involved in quite a few Slendy-ARGs is not helping.

Namely, Marble Hornets, MLAndersen0, Dark Harvest, and a tentative intention to watch 5zer02. For those of you who have no idea what those are, GO FIND OUT. NOW! And, you know... be prepared to forever be terrified of bald white dudes in business suits.

Getting (sorta) back on track, the reason I'm posting is to give links!

A fantastic fanfic author named Sukunami gave me permission to convert her stories into Kindle and Nook format.  And I, being the perfectionist that I am, wanted covers for them.  So the amazing R. A., who has done some truly beautiful FF8 artwork, kindly made up a cover for me to use for the first story. 

Without further ado, here be fics (and accompanying links):

Game Restart, an FF8 yaoi fanfic starring Seifer and Squall

EPub format (Nook): 

MOBI format (Kindle):

Sukunami's Website and her LiveJournal: terrayndian

Now go forth, my sweets, and enjoy!

To All Morons With a Car

Dear Drivers,

It has recently come to my attention that a distressing number of you never managed to pick up the basics in Driver's Ed.

Namely, you're all too lazy to move your left pinky the inch it will take to let everyone know you're going to change lanes. I especially appreciate you, Anonymous Girl in a White Car, who not only attempted to crawl up the rear end of my car several times, but attempted to go 80 mph past me, in front of me, and around the car next to me without signaling. I really needed to give my heart a good workout. Nothing gets the old blood pumping like discovering there's a car where you were a mere second ago.

But I feel much better now, since I not only caught up to you, but passed you when you stopped your car so you were -mostly- off the road and dropped someone off.

So the lesson is: Don't speed. It's called a speed LIMIT for a reason, and if you break it, you might shave maybe a minute off your destination time. Or loose about half an hour when the cops pull you over.

Lesson Two: Use your turn signal. It'll save lives by letting other people know that you're going to be occupying the space in front of them shortly, and I'm sure they'll thank you for keeping their brakes in good working condition.

Love, Freya

Random Roleplay Question

Lately, I've found myself developing a Squall (FF8) muse. Is there anyone out there who wants to RP with me as Irvine, or Seifer, or... anyone?

Just thought I'd put that out there.


My Pride and Joy

Wow, two posts in a week? I must have more time on my hands than I know what to do with.

In honor of my new laptop and its built-in webcam, I decided to take some time to snap pics of the knitting projects I've finished so far. This was easier than it sounded, though, especially when it was time to take a picture of the back of my head -_-;; But in any case, I managed, so without further ado, have some pictures.



The sparkly blue armwarmer is part of a set that I made for a friend's Christmas present, as is the aviator hat.

I also just realized that you can totally see part of my Seph/Gen poster.  And my Dino poster.   *so not an otaku, nooooooo*

I'm working on an illusion scarf, a cat hat, and a shrug.  Pictures to come when I'm done <3333
