Character Journals - Reference List

here there be names... AND THEY'RE ALL MINE. haha )

Dec. 12th, 2017

Okay so I'm terrible when it comes to advertising games/wanting characters, and I know some of you might already be stocked up on games/characters but i gotta try... but these three are ones I would lovelovelovelovelove to have at [info]thegoldenneep!

I'm not great with making things sound fun so I'm just gonna link to [info]sassylime's posts on it.... Firstly there's Morven Oglethorpe, the amazing badass mum of my character Dunbar Oglethorpe. She also has some great plot open to her as well!

Then there's Dunbar's younger (much younger) twin sisters Iona and Máiri! They've recently finished at Hogwarts, and would be some much needed young faces for David Urquhart who is sadly lacking in same-age/year friends/people in general. So the interns at opposing teams would be amazing to see (and I'm definitely for them being identical for the lols and fun times). That said, it looks like the position for Montrose Reserve Seeker could be open as well (will update once hear more on that) - which considering the family's position of being die hard Pride fans would be hilarious. Especially since Morven is already >:| at Montrose for having her son for a few years.

Anyway there would be lots of love for fivever if you happen to pick any of them up, but especially Morven.

*waves* i'm still alive, i just forget this exists most of the time.

so the subject of making icons came up in a group chat and that ended up prompting me to change the layout of my icon journal. which i did after finding a layout at [info]tessisamess that i just loved, and it turned out rather well - much more light and cheery rather than drab and grey. although it did remind me if i want to still, on occasion, post icons (like a future set of jason momoa gif icons i've slowly been adding to) i need to find somewhere to host them (and the ones i've already got).

also love to all the golden neep folk! loving this game and everyone in it!

so i'm currently keeping an eye for icons of male PBs for future use. have had a little luck.

but now i've just gone and watched the first ep of Newton's Law and even though i currently have no use for him I reeeally want to to icon Toby Schmitz from the show.

alas will have to wait until it comes out on disc.

Feb. 8th, 2017

so after christmas i did some dyeing with my niece and finally dyed a piece of silk i've had for fivever.

excuse the terrible picture - it looks a lot better in person )

i used the arashi shibori method, which i learnt yeeeears back in high school and i'd always wanted to do it again... except silly me forgot to coat the twine in wax first so that there's better resist - though it does look pretty.

i want to do more, and i have everything i need except the wax for coating the twine (which i know i can get) and the scarves... and i want to have white natural silk (or cotton) scarves and/or wraps that are already hemmed etc - because i am terrible at cutting/sewing straight. so y'know take one less step out of the equation. only it's not easy trying to find what i'm after in bulk for a relatively inexpensive price; and i know i wouldn't find any in town unfortunately. tried searching on ebay but my goodness what a minefield.

so yeah i'd like to do more for gifts for family/friends but alas seems it's not to be at the moment.

ps: oh yes, i'm also still alive. *waves*

Jun. 5th, 2016

so i'm still alive.

and still super bad at updating this.

like the worst.

so, hi everyone.

Jan. 1st, 2016

that moment where you and another player haven't decided on the names of the character[s] parents and your history is full of [MOTHER name] [FATHER name] [UNCLE name] - because otherwise you know you'd just get confused as to which one you're referencing.

on the bright side finally getting through the history of this app so yay!

i s2g if this umpteenth try at getting icons to upload with JournalWatcher's thing doesn't work i'm going to scream.

Dec. 11th, 2015

omg what is it with online courses and the way they word questions?

i can read the words, understand what the words mean but the questions still leaves me going 'huh?'

edit: example there's this question "Explain what you can look for in the workplace to assist and accommodate individuals from other cultures to promote sensitivity to diversity. For example, what would you look for if you were conducting a diversity audit?"

...I understand what the words mean but the question is just baffling me.

Dec. 2nd, 2015

since its December I've gone and changed my default to one of my holiday icons... because I've hardly used them or any of my other icons - which is kind of bad when I have 289 of them.

Hopefully I don't end up having a moment where I wonder who the hell changed my icon when I forget that I had. >.>

Nov. 27th, 2015

it could be that it's late or i'm going cuckoo or something really has screwed up... buuuut i'm pretty sure prior to now that my journal layout did not have that gap up top or gaps between entries.

...except my memory is wonky at the best of times and now i'm wondering if it has been that way and i'm simply just not remembering correctly (which knowing me in the past with similar situations, is probably the case). so basically just wondering if anyone else uses generator for their journal layouts and have noticed anything wonky about them.

also this entry's icon is in honour of rewatching OUaT (and having just finished S1... onto s2 tomorrow... er later today)... or i could've just gone for my default which i haven't changed in forever.

Sep. 29th, 2015

so i was at EB Games buying in-game cash cards for this rpg i play (cause the aussie dollar is doing shit right now so works out 'cheaper' and still get same amount of game cash as i would if i paid through the game)... anyway i turned my head and well... i just couldn't resist the little guy!

Although I was very tempted (after it was pointed out to me) to buy the other dancing groot that had a holiday themed bow around the pot part. So now my bobble Stitch doll, that I bought from a Disney store yeeeeeears ago, finally has a friend.

Sep. 17th, 2015

so i've got three colouring books (2 are johanna basford's books.. Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest) that i'm slowly making my way through... anyway aside from the awesome (and pretty) gel pens i have, i also like to use the few tombow dual-tip brush markers i have - only issue is that i've not got a whole lot and although they're awesome to use they also happen to be terribly expensive (i mean the 95+blender pen set can be nearly $280 in australia).

so i'm just wondering if anyone might know of any sort of brush markers that are of decent quality, relatively inexpensive(at least maybe less than $100 or not much higher), good range of colours and not alcohol-based (that way leads me to getting migraines).

ps: why do the nice things always have to be so expensive? D:

Sep. 14th, 2015

computer update: have it back now and turns out that apparently nothing was wrong except using the wrong port for the monitor... which is silly since one had a cover that I could never get off so I only used the one. oh well, either way I have my computer back, it's working and only cost me $25 all up.

just running bunch of virus checker and doing full on proper defrag before actually using it... and fully intending on finally getting the extra RAM I've been meaning to get for years (my computer has been running on 2gb for years the poor thing) which I reckon will help it running better and ought to stop crashes I've been having in the mmorpg I play.

So I'll hopefully be active in my games again starting tomorrow! :D

Sep. 12th, 2015

computer update: still no computer yet, but according to the shop they tested it and apparently they managed to get a picture up on one of their monitors. so thankfully it doesn't necessarily seem to be a problem with the computer itself. so now i've dropped off my monitor and it's cords so they can test it with that. so fingers crossed I might have it back sometime next week.

Sep. 6th, 2015

so finally home... only to find that the video card in my PC has possibly died - my monitor won't see that the computer is on so yeah; and tried my monitor with my dad's computer and it works fine. sadly it's the weekend so I can't get it seen to until tomorrow and no idea how long it will take.

which is totally sucky, because it has all my character stuff, photo editing stuff and online game I play regularly on it... and okay I have my iPad and possibly my mum's laptop I can borrow... I know it sounds weird, but it doesn't feel the same as using my own computer. but I will definitely try to catch up on my games that I owe replies to - although will probably not be able to catch up on apps I need to finish.

Jun. 21st, 2015

8000+ screencaps later... weeding out the ones that don't have toby stephens in them... weeding out the blurry ones... weeding out all the slightly crappier ones cause the quality or lighting is bizarro that even layers won't do jack...

but huzzah! 444 icons... which meant slightly extra work since IJ has this nasty limit thing... :/

anyway the two entries are HERE and HERE at my icon journal.
pretty happy with how they turned out considering the various lighting schemes and some annoying soft focus shots. I'm particularly partial to the green vest+tea drinking ones.

Jun. 19th, 2015

that moment where you talk about possibly making period era icons if people ask about it, but then you end up screencapping to make the icons regardless.

such is the power of Toby Stephens it seems.

Jun. 15th, 2015

wow finally used up the last of the invite codes for my new character. finally get to hit that 'generate more codes' link now.
