Was tagged a while back on this by [ profile] ran_dezvous...

Post the rules:

1. Each blogger starts with ten random facts/ habits about themselves.
2. Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their ten things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose ten people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Ten random things about me... )

I tag...I dunno. Anyone who wants to do this XD

I can't WAIT for [ profile] summerwrite to start! I'm really determined to try and beat this challenge. I know I can do it. And if I do, the result will actually be taking a load off my plate in terms of unfinished projects. Just gotta stick with it and be tough! And have people poke me. Oh, and there is actually a Yahoo group where you try to write ten thousand five hours. That's thirty-four words a minute, non-stop. Anyone else think that sounds like fun insanity?

There should hopefully be some ficcage up later. I've got a few things done that I want to post before I dive into [ profile] summerwrite. We'll see if I can get it typed up and everything in time.

Meme time~

All right, I was charged with this one by [ profile] kaitodoushi, and so I do it. I feel sort of bad because it only says ten people. If I didn't pick you, pleeeeeease to not be holding it against me.

Pick 10 people and give them the "You Make My Day" award. If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own (please don't feel obligated to add me to your list if you do it).

In alphabetical order~ )

...I might need to do a part two of this because I have a lot more people than ten to write nice stuff about ;o;

Latest on [ profile] 31_days: Feb. 22: "My heart is hardn'd, I cannot repent." [Unapologetic]
candyland: (penguin)
Because eeeeeeveryone else was doing it, and goodness knows I follow the crowd, here's that Year In Review meme, where you post the first sentence or three from each month of the year. Let's take a look-see...

January: Hey, all--Ryann's here tonight, so I won't be online tonight.

February: Today was...interesting. I saw something I've never seen happen before in a classroom, and I learned something very important. That's all I will say about it.

March: I remembered what I was going to post about!

April: Okay, I've really been thinking this over lately. It's something I've been debating about with myself for a while...but I've finally come to a very difficult decision.

May: Well, as promised, today is the grand opening! There are five new fics up over on my fic-blog, [ profile] candyfics (I fail at original names, but that's okay!).

June: *looks out window* The sky is drooling!! :D *loves the rain*

July: Phone woke me up at seven-thirty. I'ma gonna kill Dad for putting the home phone as the number to call for selling the shed, because it has been ringing continually for the last several days. I want to stab the phone x_x

August: PINECONE!! n____n

September: Sorry for the double post, but I just have to ask this... (I went on to ask why everyone pictures me as a blonde.)

October: Had my first meeting with a parent today...bought myself a pretty new necklace...and am currently trying to make myself do SOMETHING, whether it's writing another fic or two, or getting going on the next Nancy Drew game.

November: Well, I'm at the middle school tonight for the second night of conferences. I am so nervous that I feel sick to my stomach.

December: the heck is it Sunday already? Wasn't yesterday Friday? Oh well...

...yeah. That's about all I've got at the moment. Cheers! *goes back to writing*
candyland: (plunnie)
We just finished cleaning up from our Thanksgiving meal. We had actually planned to sit down and eat around this time, but the turkey cooked a lot faster than we thought it would. So we ate early. stuffed...hope everyone else is having an awesomely awesome Turkey Day :D I was studying my current list for [ profile] 100fandomhell and my theme lists for [ profile] 30_evil_deeds and [ profile] fanfic100, and I decided the time was right to go ahead and put up a fic-request post.

Here are some fandoms that I would welcome plunnies for... )

These are the series I feel I know well enough to write something for at the present time. Name a series, a character, and a prompt (as usual), and if you have requests for more than one series, go for it! :D

In the meantime...I am full of turkey and its sleepy-making chemical (I think it's called melatonin), so I might go curl up with my fic notebook and write for a little bit and take a nap. Go to it!

New on [ profile] candyfics, a triple update as promised:
- After the Fact for [ profile] 30_friends
- Tripped Up for [ profile] 30_ways
- Keyed In for [ profile] 30_evil_deeds

Meme time!

First things first...[ profile] ickaimp!! Sorry I wasn't on when you poked me--my computer apparently signed me off and on a few times, so my away message went...away. But thank you for the linkage!! ~♥♥♥

Gods...everyone keeps me so well-supplied with anime and manga and stuff. I feel like I should do something in return. WHAT CAN I DO TO REPAY YOU ALL FOR BEING SO AWESOME AND GENEROUS TO MEEEEEEEEE????

Next we have...orientation!


Apparently they give all the teachers laptops because there's wireless internet and we do our grading and gradebooks and things via the internet. So it's pretty hard-core awesome! I didn't get to check to see what all sites are accessible, since schools usually have certain sites blocked (like Facebook and MySpace). But I filled out lots of paperwork and got to go sit in MY CLASSROOM!! That's so cool to classroom.

And now...ganked from [ profile] aishuu and [ profile] ickaimp...

How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something and you were really confused, but you didn't want to ask because you thought you should know? How many times have you felt 'guilty' asking an LJ friend a question that should be 'obvious'? Well, here's your chance. I'll answer nearly any questions (random or serious), even if you're curious about more than one thing or are new to my friends list.

Go ahead. Ask. I dare you >:D
candyland: (plunnie)
PINECONE!! n____n

Tag five people on your friends list to type Pinecone (or whatever you want) in their journals.

I was tagged by [ profile] djtifabal, and I now tag...[ profile] kaitodoushi, [ profile] jeva_chan, [ profile] articulation, [ profile] wolf_crossbreed, and [ profile] rjblum. Have fun!

And I also have an announcement to make. Namely...FIC-DUMP ON FRIDAY!! That's right, folks. In honor of the move and as a way to keep myself from freaking out too hard-core about all of this, I'm doing a fic-dump. I think it's going to be four stories, one for each of my challenges. Three are already written, and one is about halfway done.

In the meantime, check out [ profile] candyfics for another new ficlet: Vengeance: Movie Marathon.

And now...back to doing productive things! *scampers off*
candyland: (planets)
And now for something just for fun...


Go. Tell me who/what primate you think I look like. If you've seen the picture I posted that once...make something up? :3 I once had someone tell me that they've always pictured me as a blonde...should I take offense? ^.~ GO TO IT!
candyland: (jack)
Okay, in Conan file 614...did anyone else notice that we finally have mention of Kazuha's MOTHER?? [ profile] cherelle_holmes isolated the panel in question on her LJ (that's where the linkie goes). I have faith in our loverly translators, so...


ETA: Okay, this meme was just too much fun to pass up. Soooo...ganked from [ profile] defnight...

F-lists are the quickest way to spread obsessions. Time to thank/blame your friends for getting into fandoms. You can blame more than one for a single fandom, or a single person for more fandoms. Tag as many as you list, or a minimum of three.

♥ I THANK/BLAME [ profile] bishonen_girl for getting me into Fruits Basket, which started my complete downhill slide in hopeless otaku-dom
♥ I THANK/BLAME [ profile] rachel_bussan (who never updates anymore *sadface) for getting me into Azumanga Daioh.
♥ I THANK/BLAME [ profile] kaitodoushi for getting me into Inuyasha...and Detective Conan, back when we only knew it as Case Closed. (YES, IT'S HER FAULT! BLAME HER!)

And for ships...I really only have one.

♥ I THANK/BLAME [ profile] ickaimp for getting me into Kaito/Hakuba.



And I tag...anyone who wants to do this.

[ profile] candyfics: Fanfic100: Sweet (featuring Heiji, Kazuha, and fruit)
candyland: (thinking)
I'm trucking along with that first kiss meme. Seriously, I am on a writing KICK right now and it is teh awesome, so keep your eyes on [ profile] candyfics because stuff is going up there like crazy--like, right now actually.

Sooooo swiped from [ profile] memlu...

Name a character or pairing I am familiar with, from a fandom I am familiar with, and I will write one line of fic in response.

If you think that I will show restraint and that none of these will spring into full-length fics, please raise your hand. Why is no one raising their hand? YOU THINK I HAVE NO WILL POWER?? ...well, you're probably right ^^;;

My fandom list can be found here. Which reminds me...I need to update that list at some point 0.0

And while I'm at it...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOMMY!!!

EDIT: Two new fics up!

* Whoops! for [ profile] jeva_chan
* Finding Humanity for [ profile] ran_mouri82
candyland: (rent)
So I just discovered the opening theme to DNAngel. And I'm hopelessly in love with it. And it's making me think that I need some new tunes with which to amuse myself as I putter about the interwebs. And I'm a total nerd for anime/J-pop, especially ballads and uber-pretty slow songs (but fun, upbeat ones are good too!). I also have a soft spot for piano and instrumental works ♥

Sooooo, my dear f-list, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some awesome anime/J-pop tunes for lil' ol' me. Much appreciated and loved! :D

I was tagged by Alena... )
candyland: (bored)
Name any character I know and I'll tell you three reasons why s/he sucks.

This will be entertaining as I try to wrestle my muse back into submission to write the last Night and finish all those first kiss requests (I have the ideas!! WHY WON'T THEY WRITE THEMSELVES??) Also, I cannot guarantee that all answers will be in the most serious sense. Just so you know. I have a natural gravitation towards sarcasm ^.~
candyland: (college)
Ganked from my entire f-list...

Name a fandom and/or character I write/wrote for, and I will tell you something about my 'personal canon' for that fandom/character.

*slaps today with the award for Suckiest Morning Ever* )

Okay...I hate to ask this, but if you responded on the "first kiss" fic meme, could you please to be giving me a prompt of some kind? Because for whatever reason, I am coming up completely blank *hangs head in shame*
candyland: (star wars)
Ganked cheerfully from [ profile] defnight...

Comment with two characters I write, and I'll write you their first kiss. It may be just an idea, a sentence, or an entire fic.

And the usual disclaimer applies--that being I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO USE ANY FICS WRITTEN HERE FOR ANY CHALLENGES I ROPED MYSELF INTO WRITING AS I SEE FIT!! :D :D :D *puts on batting helmet and readies trusty mallet* Bring it on!
candyland: (year of the ox)
Ganked lovingly from [ profile] defnight...

ABC Meme! )

And now, for [ profile] axtar...MUSIC!! :D :D :D The only one I've got uploaded right now is Blue Eyes Blue, by Eric Clapton because the other ones are going to take a while. I'll do them later :3 Enjoy it well!
candyland: (who me?)
From other people posting this meme, I have the following questions...

From Manders... )

From bluewolfe... )
candyland: (thinking)
1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or, your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better. If I already know you well, expect the questions may be a little more intimate.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Questions a la Jeva )

candyland: (jack)
I'm kinda bored. Soooooo...MEME TIME!! :D :D :D Stolen from [ profile] djtifaheart

1. Comment in this post with a pairing, a character, or a threesome.
2. I shall write you back a paragraph explaining what I think about it (good, bad, indifferent) and why.
3. Let's discuss / argue / CAPSLOCK at each other about it! I only ask that you don't get insulted, angry, mean, or stupid.

I think you probably know most of my fandoms. If you're not sure, feel free to ask!

candyland: (ninja skills)
First off, a quick meme...

Ten Things I Like! )

Everyone who knows me should see my bedroom right now. It's...clean. Almost. Like, you can see ninety-five percent of my floor. And the tops of things. It's...weird. But I'm prepping to get my new bedroom furniture ^^;;

I went to town on my knitting. It's pretty much amazing so far--the thing's supposed to be eighteen inches long before I start forming the flap, and I'm at ten and a half. The pattern just takes a good fifteen minutes to do four rows. I feel sorry for my Mom, though--she found the pattern and she started first...but it looks like I'll finish first because she's had to start over twice and I've only had to start over once :(

Updated my link list, too :) POTTER PUPPET PALS FOR THE WIN!

Little Sister's home for Easter Break--so far, so good >.>

[ profile] magic_truth? I picked up that one book you mentioned, Nocturnes, and it looks awesome :D *loves creepy stuff* I might wait until it gets warmer to actually read it, though--I like to sit on the back porch and read when it's nice out. Right now it's...cold D:

I doubt I'll be online much/at all today. I'm going to go shower, clean out my car, and pick up a few more things in my room before I go grab [ profile] msbbt and meet [ profile] bishonen_girl and her cousin MK at Long John Silver's for lunch--I think Little Sister was going to join us, too. AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO PLAY KINGDOM HEARTS ALL DAY AND IT WILL BE UBER-AWESOME!! And hopefully [ profile] msbbt will feel a bit better--she's been having a Week of Crappy D:

And remember: With love, you can dance without any pants!
candyland: (praise)
Well, the program is over--thus ends the first half of my student teaching experience. I'll make a full post about it tomorrow, as well as finish replying to other comments. Right now, I'm just really worn out and sort of want to go cuddle with my teddy bear and go sleepy x_x

But I will say this--IT WAS FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!

In the meantime, you may all do as my icon says and praise me at will:

Think Positive Meme!

Pweez? *holds ego out with a sign that says "Pet Me"*

Meme time!
