A new home, Dragon Age, and a girlfriend! :)

 It's about time for my annual update (or so it seems to be about every time this year, lol. :) 

Good new, I have a fabulous girlfriend named Crystal. We went on our first date last Friday (Jan. 2nd) to Red Lobster and it was a smashing hit. :) 

Today we went to our first bogals group meeting (we play board/card games at Panera's for a few hours) and just before I left her place, I got my first kiss with her... which was fantastic! Her lips are really soft. ^////^

Anyway, she's basically the perfect girl for me, tbh. ♥ We're both into fandom, the same game, the same ships, etc. Sometimes when I spend the night, she games and I read fic or vice versa. We have a lot of fun together. <3 It's pretty much the perfect situation. We have plans to move in together in 6 months to a year (probably a year), though we had these plans to be room mates before we started dating. ^^

More good news, I finally got out of the abusive household I've been living in for years about 2-3 weeks ago. ♥ I'm living with Rei, Crystal's sister, and so far everything is great. The only problem right now is that I desperately need to get a job so I can pay my bills. ;__;

Finally, I've gotten the new Dragon Age: Inquisition game and it's pretty good! I'm on my third playthrough currently and it's been fun! I romanced Dorian first, as a qunari Inquisitor, then Sera as a human and now Solas as an elf (obviously). I enjoy the game, but I actually prefer DA2 to it. I'm not that big a fan of how open-world it is. 

Anyone else playing Dragon Age?

YAY! I've Got A NEW Job!!

Granted, my new job isn't as high paying as it'd been with AT&T... not that AT&T paid me a lot, but now I'm getting just about minimum wage and it's about $5 less an hour than I used to make. But, well, it's better than no money, I suppose, and I'm just glad I have a job!

Really really glad... because lately I've COMPLETELY run out of money and thus I've run out of food and have been surviving on old expired canned food and that's really not any fun at all!! O.O; Oh, the stomach aches. lol >.>;;

InfoCision also has the added benefit of being a much more professional/pleasant work enviroment and the whole first day I spent there today I was pretty much consistently wow-ed in all the best ways. ♥ I also get to warn and if that warning is ignored, hang up on people that sexually harass or threaten me on the phone! Which is awesome! So, very much yay! ♥

Today is mostly paperwork, so we'll see how it goes there. Everyone, wish me luck! I can tell I'm going to need it already.

P.S. As you can tell (if anyone is still there, aware of who I am and reading my LJ), I'm making more of an effort to be involved and update my journal (and even try to be more active in my fandoms!) lately. They might not be long entries or anything... but any effort is bettter than no effort, yeah?

podfic: Eminence, by Cerebal (Young/Rush)

Fanfic Title: Eminence
Fanfic Author: cerebel_fics
Pairing: Young/Rush preslash
Rating: PG-13
Fanfic Summary: "It's not leaving people behind that you have a problem with," Rush announces. "You seemed willing enough to send that shuttle away, didn't you? No, you only have a problem when you're not one of the people being left." Words coming rapid-fire, accusatory, now. "Suicidal, Colonel? I'm sure I could find an airlock to help you with that." Young tenses, and he can almost feel Rush's reaction. A physical flinch, as though anticipating a blow. A half-step back.

Fanfic Title: The Snowdens of Yesteryear
Fanfic Author: usataro_writing
Pairing: Shawn/Lassiter
Rating: PG-13/R for dark themes
Fanfic Summary: It was a tragedy. A tragedy. A tragedy. People tell you that, but you’re not sure if they’re right. And you’re not sure if they're wrong. So you trust them. And it was a tragedy. And deep down, you have to believe you’re sad about it.

Anyone want an invite to Archive of our Own? :)

I probably should have asked a long time ago, but it's only just occurred to me.

Does anyone want an invite to join Archive of Our Own? I have 5 to give out and I haven't used any of them yet:


P.S. Also, hi! Long time no see. Maybe some time soon I'll update and explain everything thing's going on. Cause, yeah, I'm still here even if I'm not actually updating... well, at all, basically, anymore.

You can always PM or email me or send a message to my website (info found on my profile) if you want to get a hold of me. ♥

P.P.S. After, like, 3 years I've finally gotten back into the Supernatural fandom! Well, sort of. I mean, I'm now reading fic for it like whoa, even if I'm not really writing fic for it anymore. BUT I'M THINKING ABOUT IT! :) I might yet in the future! :)

Someone broke into my house!! ...and I work at AT&T now.

[House Break In:] Someone broke into our house today. The back garage door was open, screens were ripped off the windows, and the back window was kicked in. It leads into the basement-- that's where I live. My room is in the basement! I feel violated and unsafe. ):

The strange thing is that nothing was taken that we can see. Drawers had been rummaged around in and pulled open, lights were on, doors were open that are never open (I have a compulsion about them), that cats has escaped into the basement... but nothing that we can see was taken (Thank God!).

The police say the break in makes no sense. They'd completely confounded. They keeps saying that something's off and not quite right-- that it isn't a normal break in, but no one can put their finger on what's off. This is really kind of scary. It seems like someone was looking for something specific. My laptop was out and easily within view and it was left untouched. ):

Inappropriately, the only thing that really comes to mind is a skit I once heard by Dane Cook (about 5 minutes in). He said that he once broke into someone's house, rummaged around, and took nothing. He said he couldn't help wondering what the family thought when they came home to find it. Dane Cook said if it were him, he'd never be able to stop wondering what had been taken since they were unable to identify anything. Then he gave impersonations of what their reactions would have been if it'd happened again.

[AT&T:] I'm starting my fourth week of training (out of seven) at AT&T as a Customer Service Representative. We started taking phone calls yesterday-- billing calls, the easiest kind. I've had to raise my hand for help with practically every call because even though they chose the billing option, at least half of them really wanted help with troubleshooting their phone or something else I haven't been trained with to help them with.

Yesterday I got a drunk call. The dude was not only drunk, but he was also drinking while on the phone with me! D: D: D: He claimed that he'd ordered a phone 4-5 months ago and had never received it! Why would he have waited this long to call about it?! Anyway, he said he thought his phone had come in the mail and so he'd attempted to activate it... but them his neighbor took the phone from him and said it was his own. So he called the cops and the police told him that if he didn't give his neighbor the phone, they'd arrest him? ...? What? That doesn't make sense!

[X-Box 360:] On the plus side, with the money I get from my new job, I bought myself an X-Box 360 and Mass Effect! I can't wait for Mass Effect 3 to come out! Have you heard that you'll be able to have gay relations in it now? I can't wait! I hope I love it like I do Dragon Age.

Long Time No See (A.K.A. I'm a Lurker!)

[Delayed Response:] Wow, I can't believe it's been something like four months since I last posted on my livejournal. o.o; I mean, I know I'm lazy, but really! *face palm* Feel free to smack me around in revenge if you like. :)

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive, still around (always, even if I'm mostly lurking now), and always available if you need to contact me or something. You can reach me through email (recommended), twitter, private messages, tumblr, instant messaging, and much more.

[Epic Recs:] For a long time I've been using the awesome reccing community http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/739/communityb.gif epic_recs whenever I was in the mood for awesome fic and was too lazy to look for it myself. Now, years later, I'm actually a part of the community (I'll link you to my tag when I get one)! ♥ Starting today, you'll be able to see me reccing fic there every Tuesday! I rec Stargate: Atlantis, Supernatural (Sam/Dean, possibly Jared/Jensen), Harry Potter (Snape/Harry) and possible some small fandoms.

[Fandom Tattoos:] Here's some old-ish, but significant news: I got my first tattoo (see image below) not too far back and it was a fandom related one-- Harry Potter to be exact. I got it on my foot and let me tell you that hurt like HELL. XD No fat or muscle, just skin and bone? Ouch! On that note, I'm proud to report that I didn't cry and apparently did really good-- though, my leg kept twitching so if the lines look shaky, that's my fault.

One a slightly more depressing note, my foot proceeded to immediately become infected thereafter and thus began a long, swollen, painful process of healing the damn thing. Now that everything is said and done, however, I must admit that I'm quite proud of it and it's now my favorite part of my body. I'm already considering what I'm gonna get next!

For my second tattoo... hm, I'm not sure. I know I've going to get a stargate on my stomach (to cover the scar from surgery) eventually. I want to get a Dragon Age tattoo on the back of my neck. I'd like to get a really elegant Dumbledore quote, but I think it's too long... ;__; I'm planning on a Star Trek one eventually... Geez, look at me! One tattoo and already I want more, more, more! So greedy! xD

[Life/Career:] These days I'm volunteering for GLO (a re-entry program that helps ex-convicts back into society) until they become stabilized enough with the medicare and medicaid that they're able to pay me-- I've already signed a contract.

In the meantime I've not been doing much else that's particularly relevant. I had a nasty reaction to some medication (damn doctor, he KNEW how I'd react-- it's the last straw! I will NEVER being going back there) and ended up in the hospital for about a week, but other than that I've been reading fic, reccing fic, playing video games, contemplating NaNoWriMo (I signed up, but I don't think I'll be able to finish on time), and watching stuff (I really like ABC's new Once Upon A Time!).
Harry: Pity Those Without Love

Now the battle awaits us. Na via lerno victoria. 'Only the living know victory.' Fight well.

Hey everyone. Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. It's been... well, depressing. I've been busy looking for a job, but economy sucks. In between that (and hanging with Mama), I've been obsessively playing Dragon Age and immersing myself entire in the game.

So much so, in fact, that I've begun commissioning artwork for it! ♥ I'll post links to them when I get the final versions. :) Fenris and Zevran, my boys! ♥

Note: In both Dragon Age 1 and 2, you can romance other characters regardless of most sexual orientations-- yes, that means gay, straight, and lesbian. --There's even a chaste (sexless) relationship in Dragon Age 2. ♥

Opening Summary about Dragon Age (Origins): The Chantry teaches us that it is the hubris of men which brought the darkspawn into our world. The mages had sought to usurp Heaven. But instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption. They returned as monsters, the first of the darkspawn. They became a blight upon the lands, unstoppable and relentless. The dwarven kingdoms were the first to fall. And from the deep roads, the darkspawn drove at us again and again, until finally we neared annihilation... until the Grey Wardens came. Men and women from every race, warriors and mages, barbarians and kings, the Grey Wardens sacrificed everything to stem the tide of darkness, and prevailed. It has been four centuries since that victory, and we have kept our vigil. We have watched and waited for the darkspawn to return. But those, who once called us heroes, have forgotten. We are few now, and our warnings have been ignored for too long. It may even be too late, for I have seen with my own eyes what lies upon the horizon. Maker help us all.
