In a way, it's kind of funny, because I've been sitting at 999 entries on this LJ for several years… So here's number 1,000, which is the one where I'm finally jumping ship.

I'm sure most of you have heard about the ToS scare unfolding around these parts, and I am way too protective of the hundreds of thousands of words of Gays that I've shared here to risk seeing ten years of history get deleted without a trace, so – Dreamwidth it is! Same username and stuff over there.  Probably won't be posting any more over there than I have here, but will definitely be archiving like a mofo. [livejournal.com profile] tierfallen is coming, too, of course; that's most of the point.

In any case, I've been meaning to make a post like this for a very, very long time, because occasionally someone contacts me here, and I'm too much failsauce incarnate to respond, and it's all bad news. >____<  Here are the places where I'm much more active!

  • Instagram – cicinettle (Instagram, for all of its hipster rep, gives me the closest to the LJ feeling of any site I've been on in ages; the combination of fandom stuff and peeks at people's real lives is almost comparable… that said, I primarily use mine for cosplay miscellanea)

  • Tumblr – tierfal (mostly fanart and fic-related stuff, because you mustn't have Opinions on Tumblr unless you want to get yelled at)

  • Twitter – tierfal (here I periodically complain and make jokes that I think are very funny; occasionally I howl about fanfic)

  • Facebook – Tierfal Jellyfish is my largely-public cosplay account; I don't share a whole lot, but I do check it regularly.  Shoot me a message in any of these places if you'd like my personal FB (where I also don't share a whole lot XD)!

If I don't friend/follow you back in any of those spots, it's not because I don't like you; it's because I don't know who you are. X'D  Just drop me a line to let me know!

Anyway… hope you're all well.  Miss you guys; miss the sense of community; miss the way trust and camaraderie worked here; wish the internet hadn't evolved the way it did.  The very brief rundown on me is that I'm still just sort of writing feverishly all the time, only now I also hurl myself at cosplay at inadvisable speeds as another desperate form of survivalist escapism. :D  Gosh, adulthood blows!  Oh, well.

…I no longer remember how I used to use any of my tags, so I'm just going to leave this post naked. :x

[livejournal.com profile] eltea is so goooood to meeeeeeeeee.

MAJOR spoilers for Brotherhood. The song is "River Town" by Live, which I requested, and which [livejournal.com profile] eltea illustrated absolutely brilliantly.


FMA - River Town from Eltea on Vimeo.

…crap.

So this is happening.

Dark Monthprompt here



And this happened.

NO SOUL SAM



…oh my freaking Gawd, I was going to get so much done on my dissertation today.

tierfal: (Roy - This is my ass-kicking hat.)
It's ficcing ridiculous!

Fic my life!

For fic's sake!



…I'll be here all week.

HAAAAAAAALP

So… [livejournal.com profile] eltea and I were having a pretty good time with Supernatural Season 6 until it ended in a giant pile of RADIOACTIVE SUCK. S7 isn't streaming on Neflix, so it'd be more difficult for us to find, and we're not terribly impressed by the sound of it.

SPN FANS, WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE.


[Poll #1857678]


I will, uh, actually post about my life and stuff sometime later this week.

tierfal: (Roy & Hawkeye - Weapons of Choice)
Danny Butterman of Hot Fuzz: Have you ever fired two guns whilst jumping through the air?
Riza Hawkeye of FMA: …bitch, please.




But she only does it on days that end in Y.

And now back to my regularly-scheduled program of trying to write a sci-fi-y future!London and doing an unbelievably crap job.

tierfal: (Roy & Ed - Workin' Those Coats Like Whoa)
Winter is coming Click the banner for the first chapter of the Evil Fic. XD





Bonus: Bad Pun Miles is now on Tumblr. There are spoilers for the entirety of both series, I'm afraid. Also, soul-killing puns. SO MUCH SOUL DEATH AL WOULD FLIP.

tierfal: (Ed - Is an artist)
Today I'd just like to share a little experience relating to a disease I have called FOOT-IN-MOUTH SYNDROME.

…what do you mean is it FMA of course it's FMA. But it sort of applies to fandom in general; the same thing happened to me in Death Note once upon a time, which is why I should NEVER have been stupid enough to talk like this in the first place. XD

Embark with me, won't you? )

And now, back to writing crackfic and lamenting/enjoying the sheer ludicrousness of my existence. XD''

tierfal: (Tamaki & Twins - DADDY IS ANGRY)
Once upon a time (September 2011), I received a Fanfiction.net private message that I didn't really know how to respond to. Some of you may remember that this was not exactly the most fantastic period of my life, so I eventually replied trying to sidestep the problem, although I like to think the alternative solution I offered was not entirely ungenerous.

But I kind of always wanted to say more. And I'm kind of a bitch. So today I went back and picked out all the things that really bothered me about that note. If you have any illusions that I'm a nice person, and you'd like to keep them, you should probably stop reading now. ♥

No, really, it's 'a lot'. It's always going to be 'a lot'. It can never be anything except 'a lot'. ('Alright' isn't a word either.) )

NOW YOU'RE TOTALLY WISHING THIS WAS AN FMA-RELATED CRACKPOST, AREN'T YOU? AREN'T YOU? :'D

tierfal: (Roy - 'Nuff Said)
Spoilers unless you know what scene the icon's from, haha. XD

A LOL MACRO + COMMENTARY. …yeah, that's it. )

It's okay, guys. Roy knows I love him because I keep writing porn about him. That's pretty much the definition of the word "love" as far as fandom is concerned.

I AM DYING.

tierfal: (Al - HELL TO THE YES)
This could not be more my fault – as [livejournal.com profile] eltea put it upon presenting this unrivaled beauty to me, I "have magical powers of crackbunnying." But since I actually cried laughing, I feel absolutely no remorse. :'D

SPOILERS for FMA: Brotherhood! Also, HIGH-QUALITY COCAINE!

tierfal: (Izumi - Time to DIE. <3)
[livejournal.com profile] eltea and I were commiserating/despairing yesterday about how Katniss in The Hunger Games takes a turn for the Bella Swan-ish in Catching Fire – apparently having forgotten that she spent the duration of the first book being awesome. Evidently a whole book of female empowerment was exhausting, so it was high time for some boyfriend-related wangst.

Uh, what the hell, culture? Can we please find a way of expressing femininity that involves neither (a) Katy Perry destroying my childhood by turning Candyland into a brothel; nor (b) insecure young women being ordered to prostrate themselves on the altar of man-worship? Related: Fuck you, Katy Perry; learn to spell.

Well, I quit. FUCK THAT NOISE, as Dana from Reasoning with Vampires would say (and often does). I'm going to be an FMA girl. Henceforth will I kick all of the asses and look good. Note: I'm not as concerned about the looking good part; I'd rather have an opponent's blood on my face than makeup.

So here are my FMA ladies and the reasons that they make me proud to bear a second X chromosome.

Mild spoilers. But mostly just love. )

Sometime I might say more about the way male-female relationships manifest in FMA, and why those, too, make me weep for JOY rather than for BOY. In the meantime, if I've missed any ladies from FMA, or if you'd like to add a tribute to your own personal favorite female badass in the comments, please sing her praises below. ♥

tierfal: (Elrics - Represent Resembool)
Hi, I'm [livejournal.com profile] tierfal. This journal is, with occasional exceptions, friends-locked. Or, if you prefer:




If you'd like to be my pal, comment to this entry and let me know who you are, what you like, and why you're cool. :D (First, take a glance at my fake profile to find out who I am, what I like, and why I'm so totally not. XD)

If you're looking for writing of the fanfic or the o-fic variety, that's at [livejournal.com profile] tierfallen, and you're better off subscribing there. ♥

tierfal: (FMA Linguistics)
This one is totally [livejournal.com profile] icequeenrex's fault, although she didn't do it on purpose. ♥ XDDD





…if you know what I mean.

For a tiny bit of something awesome that isn't FMA (blasphemy!): Murray Gold playing the Eleventh Doctor's theme on the piano~ …is it wrong that this is the most I've wanted to watch Series 6 since being bored to tears with most of Series 5? >____>

Also, I'm not allowed to do any more ludicrously useless Photoshop projects for at least a week, because my neck hurts like a BITCH, omg. XD

**EDIT** In a beautiful, cocaine-y circle of fandommy un-productivity, [livejournal.com profile] eltea spent fifteen minutes of her life that she'll never get back making pretty much the best thing ever. And that one was MY fault. XDDDD

tierfal: (Armstrong - SPARKLING IS A SKILL…)




Related: FUCK, as of yesterday I ship Heiderich and Ed so hard. And I wrote the first thousand words of a Russell/Ed fic. Somebody put me out of my misery BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

tierfal: (Roy - 'Nuff Said)
Apparently, when it rains useless, annoying posts from [livejournal.com profile] tierfal, it POURS.

As usual, this probably won't be terribly funny to anyone who's not at least a little familiar with FMA. Okay, maybe it would be anyway. Who am I to speculate on these things? )

And now back to beating my head against a short story about a kid in one of the London Underground bomb shelters during the Blitz.

WHAT. WHAT. WHAT AM I DOING.

tierfal: (Blue Rose)
My iPod alarm woke me up this morning, and it was on my six-year-old PowerBook, of which I am the third proud owner, that I saw the news.

I don't observe nearly as many passings here as perhaps I should, but this is a computer-based community, and everyone who owns a computer owes Steve Jobs a debt of gratitude. Petty PC/Mac battles aside, in turning Apple into an explosively productive market behemoth, he forced the competition to step up their game in order to keep pace. This was a human being of extraordinary brilliance – and not the kind who produces one magnum opus and then moves on; the kind who had a purely symbolic salary as CEO because he just liked building things, and he was amazing at it. I think we can all take some inspiration away from that: Steve Jobs gave us groundbreaking products because he wanted to make things, and he wanted to make things better. He was out to prove that ambitious creativity and revolutionary innovation were not just alive and well; they were the wave of the future. And he surfed that wave like a proper Californian.

My hat's off to you, Mr. Jobs. Thank you for everything.

FABULOUS.

For those of you to whose interests it is relevant…

Chris Colfer made the TIME 100. You know. Their annual list of the world's most influential and/or pretty people. (And his blurb was written by Dianna Agron.)

brb, flailing more—

tierfal: (Red or Blue?)
This is my Make a Date entry for [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions, but since many of Vincent's biggest fans aren't subscribed there, I figured I should post it share-ably.

I would like to thank the Academy [livejournal.com profile] eltea, for convincing me to do this, fixing the mechanical pencil every time I broke it, plying me with Pop Tarts, coming up with September and October, and listening to me bitch about my job literally the entire time. Seriously. It was like three hours last night. I'm obnoxious.

Aaaand… please forgive the utter crappiness that is my "art." XD If I even knew the meaning of the word "motivation," I might have tried to pretend I understand perspective, but… nahhhhh.

Twelve months of vampire bromance~ )
