gnine: (All about the cuddles)

So, it has once more been ages since I've updated. I try, I really do...I just fail SPECTACULARLY!! :-P I was considering doing this as several different posts, but then figured that the odds of them all actually getting done, what with my track record, was low, so, one big post it is...

So first, in terms of RL, after 8 months in New Zealand, followed by 8 months in Australia, I returned to the States in February. Hanging with the sibs & co, which is always a blast. I had such an amazing time down under, and met so sooo many fantastic people! *waves* I miss you guys!!

Also saw so much great stuff. Got to take several great trips out of Sydney, down to Melbourne and the Southern Coast with my best friend and her husband and up to Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef (HOMG sooooooo amazing!! We only did one day of snorkeling, and we all regretted not doing more!) with the sibs plus their two housemates (who got married while we were up there, super fun!). (Links lead to my picasa albums)

Leaving during one of the hottest summers on record in Australia, with heat and sun and palm trees!! to arrive in the midst of one of Seattle's normal dark, dreary, rainy GRAY winters was HARD!...but at least we're not getting slammed with the snow the East coast has gotten. That's something at least. :-p

I'm currently looking for temporary work as I intend to head abroad again sometime in the fall. In the meantime I'm chilling...and having lots of time to fan, which brings me to...


Which I've been doing in SPADES! After a three year drought with nary a real obsession, in the last 8 months I've had a torrential downpour. Since I last posted in...*goes and checks* SEPTEMBER! OOPS! I was still in my Loki craze. Shortly there after, due to CHEATING (by means of being an EVOL h/c temptress) on [ profile] takadainmate's part, I succumbed to even more comic fanning.

This time it was DC and Nightwing. Now, I've always been fond of the first Robin, because, well, he rocks! But I'd never read the comics. Now I have...ALL of them. I have read pretty much every issue of every comic Dick Grayson has appeared in since 1986/post-crisis, as well as a few from before that. Um...OOPS? I also managed to read these 1000+ issues in under a, double oops? 29 years, I've avoided comics. The comic-adjacent? Sure! Love the Batman cartoons, and the X-men ones and all the films, tv shows, etc. But comics, nooooo. Steered clear of that clusterf**k. And then in the span of 3 months, I'm reading copious amounts of both Marvel AND DC! There is just not enough *headdesk*. Truly :-p

And then shortly following that, I dabbled a bit in the Young Avengers comics, cause, really, once you start down the dark path...*shrug* why the hell not?

Next there was Teen Wolf. Now, I watched the first season back in June, and then second season as it aired, but I'd been avoiding the actual fic/fandom until I could fan with my sister. So when they visited at Christmas, our whole group watched it together (snorkeling, site-seeing, koala-holding, etc. by day, hilarious werewolf hijinks by night, good times ^^) So then I spent most of Jan & Feb catching up on all the glorious fic that had been accumulating \o/. And now less than 2 months till season three starts, w00t

And now most recently, in just the past two weeks, neechan and I have succumbed utterly and completely to Person of Interest. Been seeing stuff on it for a while and been curious, but the squee levels on my twitter and tumblr skyrocketed in the last month, enough to finally motivate us to sit down and watch it. And it was GLORIOUS! It feels so much like a classic old skool fandom. Keep having Sentinel flashbacks. Ah, natsukashii! Loving it! Finch! Reese! Beeeear! So much repressed feelings with far too short, but all the more precious for the lack, friendship moments! The season two premier especially!!

Sadly, there is not enough fic for it, especially long stuff. *siiiiiiigh* But, the fandom does seem to be growing rapidly, so...*fingers crossed*. And neechan is writing for it, she's already finished two fics, w00t! In the mean time, I'm cranking out the chibis, three done in the past week. I just can't help it, they're too adorable! Annnnd, that segues nicely into...


I've actually been remarkably productive in the past 6 months, art-wise, though all but one of them are chibis...oops? But in various styles; I've been experimenting as I'm just not ever completely happy with them, especially my line work, which has never been one of my strengths :-p

Avengers...and by that I mostly mean Loki!

I did a whole series of the Avengers with Loki's mythical kids cause um...drawing monster children in chibi form is waaaay too much fun! ^^
