i went to king's cross today (september 1st, 2017) aka the exact day the epilogue took place.

sadly i did not see albus severus or scorpius or victoire and teddy snogging but the next-gen-RPer in me is v satisfied.

but anyway, i'm safe and sound in london! annnnd now i'm going to tag logs, finish memes, and defeat jetlag. WISH ME LUCK. and have a restful labor day weekend for all my american friends. ♥

also, because i could not resist, i made bitmojis of my [info]acheron characters (edit: it got a lil' PG-13 in the comments, so heed with caution :)):

cut for length and lols )

cindy's [info]taleless postmortem of doom, part ii.

1. So. I think I might have gotten ~ideas~ for [info]acheron. 👀 More on this later.

2. I also think I might be coming down with a cold. Say it ain't so.

3. BUT ANYWAY, the real reason why I'm posting right now so I can dump the second and final part of my [info]taleless postmortem/tl;dr/author notes onto IJ.

Again, this is long as fuck, probably riddled with typos, and a goddamn tome of stuff, but

HERE WE GO. /cracks knuckles

PART TWO: Noel, Pilar, Samar, Tyler, and me. )

where went that cheeky friend of mine?

1. I have an icon journal! [info]licorice! I mean, technically, I've had that journal for a while (it used to be ~cottage) but I never really pimped it out much and after dusting it up due to That Photo Hosting Service That Shall Not Be Named, I decided it was in major need of a facelift and a rename token. So, yeah, if any of y'all want to affiliate, let me know.

2. I haaaave a lot of [info]taleless postmortems for my characters and I ended up with a novel of encyclopedic proportions that might need to get split into several posts. LIKE A FUCKING HORCRUX. Whoops. I'll get those posted soon, as well as the narratives I have left. /flops

3. As for RP stuff, I'm -- man. There are so many cool new game premises out there, especially now that I'm going to be short eight characters. Buuuut I think I'm really, really going to have to recalibrate, RP-wise.

Especially when RL is like, HELLO YOU HAVE GRAD SCHOOL IN EIGHT WEEKS, BITCH. I'm registering for my classes (!!!) and I've fallen into a weird pit of "omg this is a real thing that is real?". My schedule is already fucking strange as is, and I'm not sure how long it'll be before I fall into a new normal and figure out how much capacity I actually have for RP. I think my main priority, post Taleless stuff, is getting my [info]frontlines characters into the swing of things and maybepossiblyfinally apping my third. We'll see. The FOMO is too real, man.

4. That said, I'm leaving in 3 hours for BRAZIL. I'll be back in a week. :*

I'm so out of it right now but I'm stateside againnnn

Characters can be past/present, hmu:

1. Comment below and I will tell you which of your characters that I've played against are my favorites and why I love them, as well as my favorite of the lines we've had. Alternatively, I will just tell you what I love most about your writing.

2. Give me the name of one of my characters, and I will tell you three reasons why it would be terrible to date them, have sex with them, and/or be in a long-term relationship with them.

3. Give me a character and something you want their thoughts/feelings on.

4. Give me one of my characters and one of yours and I will give you 1-3 things that remind mine of yours.

5. Give me one of my characters and one of yours and I’ll (do my best to) tell you about one time they kiss.

apartments of cigarette ash

- Hi! I'm in Milan(o), Italy, and I'm having a swell time! I've mostly been eating my weight in gelato and ogling over beautiful but horrifically expensive Miu Miu heels. Morocco was fun, but MAN, the desert heat (110˚ F!!!) and dust storms were so insane that I had fucking Sandstorm stuck in my head during the trip inland. Plus side: I got to ride a camel. Minus: camping out in the Sahara means sleeping in sand full of camel turds.

- I'll be back in NY by Friday and then come August 4th, I'm off to Brazil!

- Speaking of August, I GOT SUMMONED FOR JURY DUTY. IN SAN FRANCISCO. L M A O. Which -- yeah, I'm definitely going to have to postpone.

- RP-wise, I have so much stuff I need to knock out. Like this Nika post-kidnapping narrative that's been brewing in my head. And a Carey (backstory) narrative that I've been meaning to bang out, because I've kind of left her at the wayside of my headspace. I really just want to do more stuff with my [info]frontlines characters, period. Not to mention all the [info]taleless stuff to wrap up.

- I also got an email about class registration, which is opening up at the start of August, and ksadflk;wer school feels so soon already, ahhhh.

- Okay, I'm going to do the Polyvore meme (ty [info]andraste/[info]fjords/[info]stillskies/[info]hallow for inspiration!!!) because I have a metric fuckton of fashion-related headcanon for RP characters (but lbr, I'm a complete clotheshorse irl that it's embarrassing). Since I've had slow Internet for this leg of my trip, I'm doing my [info]frontlines characters first:

RL STATUS: I have officially been to all 50 states! 🙌 🙌 🙌 I'm currently in Boston because my passport got renewed much sooner than I'd anticipated and I'm now driving further ... into Canada (aka New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island!).

In other news, I have an official Bitmoji Problem™. And last night was the worst of it when I decided to make Bitmoji versions of all my current RP characters at [info]frontlines and [info]taleless.

without further ado, all my current characters in Bitmoji form~ )

UHHHH. Since I have all of these loaded onto my computer now, I'm just going to make a meme on the fly. Comment with one of your characters and one of my (current) characters, and I'll give you 1-3 Bitmoji that my character would send to yours.

soundtrack: la llorona + the shadow.

So yesterday sucked because we had a power outage in San Francisco that left us without power (including phone reception) for the entire day. And for somebody who doesn't have a car on hand or money (in the sense that none of the ATMs or credit card readers are going to work...), it was a mega yikes alert!

Anyway, randomness aside, I'm posting a [info]taleless playlist for one of the trashiest of trashships: the Shadow and La Llorona (not!Pilar and not!Enzo). Because this one got away from me and this might be the most melancholy mix I've made? YAY FOR TRAGICOMIC TRASHSHIPS.

silver springs; a soundtrack for the weeping woman and the shadow. )

state of the cindy.

Soooo today was my last day at work. I couldn't have asked for a better exit, but I have a feeling that a few days from now (or maybe a few hours, once this alcohol tapers off ha ha ha ha ha) I am going to be verklempt af.

Anyway. It's ten days of packing, and then a ridiculous series of traveling. It doesn't feel real in the slightest.

Apr. 15th, 2017

if it's fraud or art, they'll pay you to believe

I don't wanna pack, so.

Comment here with one of our pairings (past, present, pending or psl — romantic, friendly, family, or anything), and I will write you a drabble in six words. It will either be six words exactly, or several six-word lines.

this entry brought to you by the letter J for JETLAG.

HELLO NEWLY READDED FRIENDS. i've gone ahead and deleted/re-added everybody in the throes of the IJ dustup, but in case i've made an oversight, please give me a heads-up (comments are screened on this entry!).

irl stuff has been CRAZY GOOD, and when i say that, i mean that irl has been both crazy and good, as i received a bit of really good news that i'm still pinching myself over and will deserve its own update! in more immediate news, i've just returned from brazil, which was uh-mazing. my friend had a beautiful wedding, i got to partake in carnaval festivities, i ate my weight in food, and i drank a heck lot of caipirinhas. all in all, a wonderful week.

i'm going to tag rp stuff and my logs (SORRY!!!) later this week. i've just been so exhausted and on top of that, there's a lot of rl stuff i need to tackle, including this jet lag from flying for 17 hours ah ha ha. ♥

Feb. 23rd, 2017


Ahhhhh I got my Brazilian visa today, and it's so weird thinking that in less than two days, I'll be on a plane? To Carnaval? LIKE WHAT?

Anyway, because I'm a big ol' nerd and I was having this conversation with a friend irl over the weekend about MBTI, I decided to do the Myers-Briggs typecasting with my characters, starting with my [info]taleless cast. It's been a while since I've done this, but yeah! I used the descriptions and strengths/weaknesses from 16 Personalities, underlined traits where I was like, awww yeahhhh das my character, and e-scribbled a couple notes. It's mostly for my general geekery/tl;dr and figuring out where my characters usually stand (I guess I prefer playing extroverts over introverts, thinkers over feelers, judgers over prospectors -- aka, the exact opposite of myself), but yay tl;dr!

MBTI tl;dr / cut for MUCH LENGTH )

the things i do for nostalgia.

...did IJ just delete a bunch of my accounts without telling me?

aka guess what I'm going to be doing for the next hour-or-so. -_-

edit: yo, um. so there was a purge, but due to a bug, you might not have received email notifications for your accounts. and if the email address attached to the account isn't validated, it's an auto-purge. check your accounts, fo sho!

(also lmao hi my flight got delayed by this freakstorm in california, which means i would definitely have missed my connecting flight, so i'm stuck at home for another night. i'm gonna try and get starters & tags to people!!!)

Feb. 14th, 2017

Happy heart day! ♥

I swear I'll get around to my logs soon (!), but for the meantime, have some memes:

1. HYPOTHETICALS: Pose a hypothetical question about one of my characters (past/present) and I will babble on about what that would have been like.

2. PROPOSALS: Give me one of your characters, and one of mine, and I'll tell you how mine would propose, and when, and why, in this AU universe where they would propose.

3. AGES: Give me a character and a number that's smaller than their age and I'll give you a corresponding headcanon! Basically my idea of what they were like at that age.

All three memes are susceptible to drabble-like answers. :)

I'm going to elevator pitch my [info]taleless wants REAL QUICK

[info]kurios: The March Hare, Tweedledee+dum, the Caterpillar, the Dormouse! Maybe her father? :)
[info]pinolo: Tyler's biological momma! You'd get plot with Dee's latest, as he's the babydaddy.
[info]taigar: Jungle Book tales! Where's Kaa, yo.
[info]trepak: Wife and daughters! Join the Pukhov(a)s! Nutcracker tales (Mouse King, Marie, Pirlipat)!
[info]pranto: everything. She's a noob. I'll have an app up soon.

Magda and Noel are kinda good with regards to character wants, but it's not like I'm going to say no to more plot. I also made a wanted post before holds had closed a few weeks ago that has some more specifics here if you want a looksie. ♥

soundtrack: samar bansal

IT'S PLAYLIST TIME. Part 2 of 6 of my [info]taleless soundtracks! I'm pouring this one out for Samar Bansal, the tiger in man's clothing (or vice versa), who is going to get a tl;dr soon (!!!). Fun fact: this is also what happens when I search "tiger" and "fire" in my music library.

red crystals; a soundtrack for samar bansal. )
