A young woman stands in her bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, is this young woman's birthday. Though it was thirteen years ago she was given life, it is only today she will be given a name!

What will the name of this young woman be?

> Jade Egbert

Hey, not bad. You kinda like that name. Okay. Jade it is!

Your name is JADE, and today is your BIRTHDAY. Your doting father has baked you SEVERAL DELICIOUS CAKES, which are scattered around your room. You have a variety of INTERESTS. You have a passion for REALLY GOOD MUSICALS. You like to investigate things and pretend you’re a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR, but you are NOT VERY GOOD AT IT. You also have a fondness for FILM NOIR. You like to play video games from time to time, and SECRETLY kind of like to GARDEN but don’t think it fits with your TOTALLY HARDBOILED PERSONALITY.

when you talk to your friends you
show how TOTALLY hardboiled you are with LOTS OF EXCITED PUNCTUATION and CAPS and EMOTICONS! 8D, and you use the name giddyGumshoe.

What will you do?

> First, be the AU. Second, play SBURB.

After a series of CONVOLUTED AND COMPLETELY HILARIOUS ANTICS INVOLVING DAD, CAKE, AND SERIOUS FEDORAS, you manage to install the SBURB BETA client, with the help of your server player, ectoBaubles. EB is suuuuuuch a great guy! :D

aranamitouma: (11:50:37 AM) "The reason why they didn’t out Richie in the series is because they couldn’t less they lose their Y7 rating (which is the most adult rating a children’s cartoon can get here in the states). That’s right here in the states, YOU CAN’T BE GAY ON A KIDS SHOW. They would’ve lost that rating and there would’ve been no Static Shock."
aranamitouma: (11:50:39 AM) ... I

squidsonajet: (11:50:48 AM) Read further. It's beautiful, makes you cry.

aranamitouma: (11:50:48 AM) never realized

squidsonajet: (11:50:54 AM) ...you didn't know RIchie was gay?

aranamitouma: (11:50:59 AM) No I knew that!
aranamitouma: (11:51:11 AM) God and I ship it foreeeeeever.
aranamitouma: (11:51:14 AM) The rating thing.

squidsonajet: (11:51:33 AM) Keep reading, he does an amazing analysis on why Richie still counts goddamnit. And Montoya.

aranamitouma: (11:52:10 AM) There are a ton of characters that I've read as clearly gay in superhero stuff-- and are gay like Montoya, yeah-- but I had never realized actually saying that would bump up the rating.

squidsonajet: (11:52:18 AM) Welcome to America.

aranamitouma: (11:55:29 AM) bluuuuuuuh
aranamitouma: (11:55:36 AM) let's start a new country
aranamitouma: (11:56:02 AM) it can be Queeristan

squidsonajet: (11:56:06 AM) *sporfle*
squidsonajet: (11:56:17 AM) Our national flag is the rainbow.

aranamitouma: (11:56:21 AM) but all the oppressed people are welcome <3

squidsonajet: (11:56:40 AM) And our national bird is...I don't know, what kind of bird is very gay?

aranamitouma: (11:56:46 AM) hmmmm
aranamitouma: (11:56:54 AM) Bird of Paradise?

squidsonajet: (11:57:05 AM) ...the penguin!

aranamitouma: (11:57:07 AM) They are flashy and awesome and hilarious to watch dance--
aranamitouma: (11:57:10 AM) YES
aranamitouma: (11:57:14 AM) MUCH BETTER
aranamitouma: (11:58:21 AM) and we will have cartoons where Richie is allowed to be gay, possibly all over Static because uuuunf, and so are Lexington and Eddie Brock and Renee and Brainiac 5 <3

squidsonajet: (11:58:36 AM) Yes!
squidsonajet: (11:58:41 AM) ...Eddie Brock? What, Venom?

aranamitouma: (11:58:51 AM) HE ONLY LOVES ME FOR THE HATE

squidsonajet: (11:58:56 AM) I thought that was just FoYay.

aranamitouma: (11:59:05 AM) [/direct quote!]

squidsonajet: (11:59:15 AM) that's different. He's not gay. He's just gay for Spidey.

aranamitouma: (11:59:20 AM) Okay, okay
aranamitouma: (11:59:23 AM) Well
aranamitouma: (11:59:37 AM) how about the Symbiote itself?

squidsonajet: (11:59:49 AM) It is also gay for Spidey.

aranamitouma: (11:59:55 AM) If we gender it male (which... it maybe is?)-- yes.

squidsonajet: (12:00:02 PM) In fact I think it is what makes Eddie gay for Spidey.

aranamitouma: (12:00:12 PM) psssssh
aranamitouma: (12:00:23 PM) look there is totally enough gay in there to signify

squidsonajet: (12:00:32 PM) I think it's gay enough as it is.
squidsonajet: (12:00:37 PM) Let's just have more normal gay.
squidsonajet: (12:00:46 PM) (And l and t and q and so on.)
squidsonajet: (12:01:01 PM) Also we will invite the writers of Huge and make them make more seasons of Huge.

aranamitouma: (12:01:07 PM) so let's get some venom*spidey smoochin' onscreen because hot damn sentient alien suit with tentacles
aranamitouma: (12:01:16 PM) ot3ot3ot3ot3ot3
aranamitouma: (12:01:27 PM) <3333

squidsonajet: (12:01:29 PM) Dear, we can't just have a cartoon cater to your particular kinks just because we run the country...no, wait, we can.
squidsonajet: (12:01:32 PM) That works.

aranamitouma: (12:01:34 PM) \o/
aranamitouma: (12:01:48 PM) Ooooh, and Transformers!
aranamitouma: (12:02:03 PM) Get their canon gay all animated and awesome!
aranamitouma: (12:02:22 PM) UT!MIRAGE, SUNSTREAKER, YOU GET OVER HERE RIGHT NOW

squidsonajet: (12:02:30 PM) Sunstreaker was creepy, tho.
squidsonajet: (12:03:20 PM) (Also I think I should go show off my progress to nice lady who does resume stuff, brb.)

aranamitouma: (12:03:26 PM) (Okay!)
aranamitouma: (12:03:51 PM) And that is why we run the country, Sunstreaker will now not suck and be one of my least favorite characters!

---

Small correction: Eddie Brock CLEARLY is angling for a black romance with Peter Parker. He is so fucking spades it makes me want to re-fill the Homestuck quadrant meme with non-HS characters. (<> can be Woody and Buzz Lightyear! :D ) But Seiber does not care about Homestuck so I let that slide. XD

It's a cool spring evening, and you've just stepped into an alleyway. The streets are brightly lit behind you, yellow storefronts and golden streetlamps pouring their buttery light over the cold white glare of headlights and screens.

In the alleyway, the artificial noon-brightness fades into the softening blue of evening. The buildings dull the noise of the city, and you take a deep breath of air tinged with gasoline, dust, and fried food.



What is your name?

1/13/11 10:58 am - THIS WEEK

oh god this week.

oh god, this week.

(Well at this point it is more "these last two weeks" but still!)

In the past two weeks:

- My mac's hard drive fried. Everything was lost, including the high-res/PSDs of all my art since November, chat logs, writing, and my next app for Damned.
- My new car's check engine light came on three times.
- My car's gas cap wouldn't open at a gas station, stranding me for an hour, in the cold, before someone managed to pry it open for me.
- I moved to college and was issued a school laptop!
- THE SCHOOL LAPTOP DIED IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS.
- The tech dude from my dorm has not gotten back to me yet!

Also a million tiny things, like it being bitterly cold in Maryville, and school stress, and being lonely, and now I am bursting into tears at the slightest provocation. Like typing about bursting into tears is making me teary. Also, listening to Sondheim. "Being Alive" is an awesome song it should not make me weep gently into the horn pile dammit.

God damn this week. ;_;

About A BAJILLION bits of art under the cut. Starcon2, Metal Gear Ac!d/2, and silly Homestuck (MSPA)/Phoenix Wright crossoverfusion things.

THERE IS LOTS

not all exactly sfw. The SC2 are sexy, mostly naked aliens. The Homestuck/PW has a very silly comic that ends in a boy getting kissed by another boy (but the art is so doofy you might get away with it XD )

I lovelovelove "Within You Without You". Also "I Want You (She's So Heavy)".

The one that might be the most fun to sing along to, though, is "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". BANG BANG MAXWELL'S SILER HAMMER CAME DOWN UPON HIS HEAD~ CLANG CLANG MAXWELL'S SILVER HAMMER MADE SURE THAT HE WAS DEAD~

ETA: Also, sure, why not?

12/10/10 01:50 pm

Haha, and thats a problem inside its self a person who feels the need to write a "fanfiction" taking something into a perverted context from a children's cartoon. Doesnt speak well of the person doing such thing. Pretty sad that people have to take things from a children's cartoon into a perverted light. Then again like I said its funny how they call things like that "creepy", when there honestly the "creepy" ones for thinking that much into it. I think it falls in between being a creeper, and being a pedophile.

w-what is this I don't even

12/3/10 02:48 pm - Univerity!

Omg, I am registered for classes at Northwest Univerity.

So far, I am totally registered for:
Concepts of Mathematics (oh thank god it is not another algebra class I can fail @_@ it seems to be more of a class ABOUT math than one where I have to DO math.)
Modern & Contemporary Literature (diversity credit! also do want <3 )
Multimedia A/V Production (again: do want! It's one of the electives.)
Intro to American Government & Politics (eh whatever.)

And my academic adviser is going to try and get me into ceramics, which will be fun! And also my only art class, since ALL THE OTHER ONES WERE FULL. ALL OF THEM. JEEZE. But that is okay. <3 Also, possibly drawing? I have sort of taken most of the entry level art classes already, but they want me to pull together a portfolio so they can judge whether or not the work I've done is passing-level for their art program here.

11/28/10 11:29 am - i am a feminist, this is a feminist post

DEAR FRIENDSLIST:

It's not okay to use misogynistic language and slurs. >: Please stop, it makes me sad.

(It is also not okay to use other hurtful slurs in hurtful ways. But I see the sexist ones more often.)

This includes calling anyone who is not a female dog a bitch, calling a woman with a sex drive a slut or whore, and implying that women who are irritated or angry are menstruating.

There are exceptions, but not many.

STILL LOVING YOU,

11/8/10 12:07 am - the fuck

So someone posts to queer_rage about something, people are appropriately outraged on their behalf, including me:

Nthing that this is totally worth getting rage over.

Mod replies,

I'm trying to decide if this comment is supportive or just bad grammar and spelling.

Either way, supportive comments only, otherwise you'll be promptly booted from this comm under suspicion of being a troll, since you couldn't be bothered with very basic mechanics - which would have made your intention clear.


I am wat because wat, and I immediately PM them, because wat I am not a troll why would you even!:

W-what? How was that not clearly supportive? D: I was agreeing with the rest of the commenters that having your identity erased is totally worth getting annoyed over....

But PMing is against the rules! Um:

I will not justify this PM, with further response regarding your actual inquiries.

You need to read the rules and review what you have done wrong and then you can contact the mods in an appropiate manner, NOT THROUGH PM.

- jesse


Whoops. It's like the last rule on the profile, I missed it entirely, I take my request over to e-mail:

Sorry about the PM, I forgot that there was a rule to e-mail. >.>;;

But I'm still confused as to what I did wrong... I know I used some rather colloquial grammar, but I thought my support of the OP was still clear? D: And I didn't misspell anything that I can see...

(I'm referring to this: http://community.livejournal.com/queer_rage/1545261.html?thread=17432877#t17432877 )


At this point, a friend informs me that there has been a post regarding this to the comm. I refresh, and cannot see it because!:

"Nthing" is mis-spelled and you use a confusing double negative, both of which undermine ANY clarity in that comment.

Some of the members are not native English writers or speakers. You need to be clear and precise with your wording as you can.

There are no excuses for not knowing the rules. If you don't remember them, re-read them to be sure. You have had your posting privileges revoked because you did not follow the correct guidelines for contacting the mods. I'm sorry to be a bit anal about that, but grammar and spelling and following the rules are baseline expectations for this community.

- jesse


the fuck

NOW I WOULD LIKE TO CLARIFY that nth is a real word, and nthing is real slang! The n is any integer; I use nthing all the time where there are a chain of "seconding!" and "thirdings!" and I do not wish to count up to what number I should be using. AS I SAY TO THE MOD:

... no, it's not. Nth is a valid word-- it's an unspecified number. Nthing is the same as seconding or thirding or fifthing, and may be slang, but there's no rule against slang that I can see. (The first google hit is http://metatalk.metafilter.com/15612/Nothing-and-Nthing ...)

I'm sorry about the PMing, it's a very unusual rule and I didn't even think to check in my confusion over getting a mod note.


I don't think I am being unreasonable, am I? :\

If you'd like to be banned, keep arguing. This discussion is done.

- jesse


Apparently, though, I am. Um. 8|;;
