I love compliments, but I can’t take them very well – I get uncomfortable and think that they’re not sincere even though they most likely are.

I can take constructive criticism – it makes me grow and come at things from new angles, but I can take non-constructive criticism and get sadistically vindictive when people condemn my work.

I know I should work on getting my emotions of my sleeves, but that’s harder said than done.

I procrastinate too much. I got an art deadline at Sunday by midnight (for an IAACSC) and I'm still only working on the line art - it's been four hours since I did any work on it (I've been reading in the capslock_naruto comm on LJ instead)...

By the way, why is my LJ friends page overrun with Hetalia fanart? I mean it's cute, witty and all that, but the situation is starting to get insane!

I’ve been pushing things so hard, so really hard that I now feel like I’m in a corner with only tiny windows of escape... Fuck! This is an awful feeling.

I’m reminded of that Pulp song, Common People– I’m so screwed.

Stuff usually works out in the end, but right now... neee I’ll figure it out.

People who add stuff to their favourites on devART without commenting.

I'm serious people - it doesn't have to be elaborate - it's not so hard writing a "good", "nice", "a-ok" or simply putting in a smile [:) :D :P :3 ;) ;D ;P] of some kind before hitting the send button, but it makes the artist so very happy!

Make me feel welcome and happy - go comment on my crap :D

I’m at the uni library - and will have to stay for another hour yet - and I seriously don’t want to read or write pr0n when logged on the computer terminal with my own student account... I so need my weekly fanfic fix, but I know I will have to work tomorrow and the weekend will be filled with essay writing (and I seriously need to work on my thesis - I’m waaaay behind...)

It’s not as if I’m only reading or writing pr0n, but reading Tenzsaku is just as bad even if it’s just PG-rated, isn’t it? Still, Buffy was a major series and it did depict the romantic relationship between a teenage girl and an immortal three hundred-something year old - fifteen versus twenty-seven isn’t that big an age gap when the most serious offence is a peck on the cheek - I had girlfriends when I was at upper secondary school (about fourteen or fifteen) who had twenty-something year old boyfriends (I always considered those blokes suckers though, who could only pick up underage girls...), but still...

And let’s take a moment to consider Nabokov’s Lolita! Or, maybe we shouldn’t do that...

Perhaps I really need to stop rambling and get actual work done?

What Do Naruto Characters Think of You(For Girls)(With Detailed Explanations + your love life)(updated) by HajimeNoOwari
Enter Your Name
Your Age
Narutothinks you are an awesome person and a strong ninja (you always used to stick up for him like a sister)
Sasukethinks you are hot but he would rather die than admit it
Saican't get rid of you. You made it your mission to make him feel. You have succeeded more than several times but Sai doesn't let you know. Either because he doesn't want to admit he can feel or because he knows you would leave if he told you...
Gaaralusts for you but is afraid that those feelings are Shukaku's lust for blood
Nejibelieves you are his and his alone, any male to touch you will have to face his wrath
Shikamarudaydreams about you and him and his bed at midnight
Kibais your best friend. He likes you very much just as Akamaru does but is always joking around saying that you are using him just to get to Akamaru.
Shinohas you on his black list after you stole his glasses, filmed him laughing, and gave Chouji his bug collection for dessert (it was actually sugary and crispy as Chouji claims)
Kakashithinks of you as his little sister, he always looks after you, kicks Naruto's but when he insults you, scares away the male population, he even lends you his Icha Icha paradise books
Kabutothinks you are sexy and wants to have you but is afraid Orochimaru would kill him if he "damaged" his new container
Orochimaruwants your body, fuck Sasuke!
Itachiis in love with you, you are guttsy, hot, strong, calm, smart, a good kisser and much more. Keep it up, he is a little to obsessive but that just his way of saying he cares. And don't make him jealous because he will not hesitate to kill the guy.
Kisameis afraid of you ever since you tried to make a stew out of him while he was asleep
Deidaralearned not to mess with you after you replaced his bird collection with rather large collection of naked figures doing nasty stuff and than burned down his room frying all of his clay supplies
Sasoriwants to be with you. You refuse each time telling him he should have asked before he made himself into a puppet
Your Splecial Traitscold, silent, sarcastic, deadly
Your SoulmateNaruto, you are both hyper
Who You End Up With And How You MetKabuto - Orochimaru assigned him to find as much information about you as he could
How You DieYou steal Chouji's lunch

a few more [rather image heavy] )

Oh my, oh my... The only keyboard configurations installed on the university computers are Swedish and US English – fail times a million. I had to go around that by finding an online romaji to kanji and hiragana converter, which is just wrong and it won’t help me with the fact my brain is wired to the UK English keyboard layout (I hate to have to look down at my fingers when I write), but at least it’s something.

Yes the inconveniences one encounter in MDC:s are mind-boggling ^^;;

Procrastination is my ninja way! [

[ music | Live: The Distance ]

I have things I should do – that I really should do, but instead I work on fan fiction... Naruto fan fiction <.<       > >

Tomorrow I’ll e-mail my teacher and go to the library – without my laptop and just get it done - or mostly done.

Good thing is I now know I don’t have time for NaNo and can just ignore it. 5216 words is enough more than enough for me to fail with. Go me ^^;;

Can’t we just line up all the idiots who code and make spam stuff and just shoot them?

I’m serious.

I just went through and sorted away about a hundred spam accounts from the JediGirl forums – some of them pointed to servers with children’s pornography.

I’m totally and utterly disgusted.

I almost feel like I never want to step foot on the Internet again.

I must appear to be a very confident university student who knows everything because people always come up to me and ask about stuff like where the library printers are or how to lock the computer when you have to leave – or I might look like a university librarian who just happens to study intellectual history... Of course, the piercing and punk-like hairstyle isn’t archetypal of librarians and kind of shatters that illusion some. I must just look like a really cool and informative person – or a library nerd – I do have a myriad of books, notes and pencils about my all the time. The punk-ish look still kind of destroys that nerd illusion – even with the yellow “Scout Sweden” t-shirt I think.

It’s a mystery.

Oh, and I’m stuck here ‘till eight-ish without my trusted iPod (which I forget at home next to my computer) – oh the pain.

There was a discussion on the [Kakairu @ lj] community about fan fictions that don’t get recommended even though they’re great, while other fan fictions, albeit great as well, get recommended over and over again. The interesting question to this problem is of course: why is that?

In all fandoms there are fan fictions that are considered to be classics, of a sort, and they are “always” rec-ed even though they are year old, while other fan fictions – some old and some new – are just as brilliant, if not more, yet are “never” rec-ed.

In every fandom there are fan fictions that make up the core of the fanon and “everyone” knows of them, bases their own character and canon interpretations on them, as well as generally completes the circle by recommending it to the next generation of fans.

Why’s that?

The simplest answer I have is that a BNF comes across the fan fiction, likes it, and recommends it – the BNF’s “fans” then decide they like it, because their messiah liked it, and recommends it – the circle goes on.

「悲しい出来事は忘れなさい」- it's fandom.
