girlanachronism: an animated list of reason why I no longer have an appropriate icon (Default)
[personal profile] girlanachronism
As some of you may know, my laptop got broken over New Year, and I lost everything on it. I wasn't that bothered, really, because it was mostly uni stuff and since it's between years there was nothing on there I needed to save. But I was a bit sad about the fic bits and pieces.

Anyway, today I found an old back up drive, IDK, maybe a year old? I spent way to much time looking through all the old files. It was awesome :D all this stuff I'd forgotten starting, stuff I thought was lost, stuff I can't even identify as coherent sentences...

I'm kinda tempted to take some of them up again. But I haven't written much for ages now, I think I'd be even worse than when I started, if that was possible.

Besides, there's just so much! Seriously, whole piles of fakenews stuff; the first chapter of a sort of record-store au I started once, the first chapter of a film noir-ish mystery thing (which I had a sort of plot outline to at one point but I forgot it and it's not on the harddrive, so I too have no idea how it ends), a couple of random pieces of girl!Ollie and girl!Riggle, all sorts of stuff. And there's some random Good Omen-esque conversations I think I wrote before I even knew what fandom was. Little romantic Mighty Boosh fragments, too.

Oh, and for some reason roughly page long story about Howard Moon and Vince Noir buying a catapault (wtf, past-me?)

So, uh, there's is no point to this post, really, just my manic need to put my indecision into writing: on the one hand, I remember these ideas! Some of them were fun, and there are bits I still like!  On the other hand... writing is hard... and I fail at it. Really bad.

Maybe someone could adopt some of the ideas. Or something.

I might post the catapault thing for laughs, though. Gotta do something to distract myself from the fact that I broke up with my boyfriend right before fucking Valentines day *headdesk* I hate pink hearts very much right now.

I don't know who those people are, but that sounds amazing anyway.

They are characters played by these men:

... and the show is called the Mighty Boosh, and it is awesome. To be fair, buying a catapault would probably be the most sensible thing to happen in any episode... it's very much rock-and-roll whimsy on crack type humour.



HANA KIMI ICON :D :D

Those two look awesome. I'm gonna put that show on my list ;)

HANA KIMI! I just saw the special episode. I did not expect that dude to fall in love with Sano. ;)

I'm glad you're back on LJ! (Partly because almost no one is up when I am because they almost all live in the states and they're all in bed....)

I couldn't resist.

Oh, I haven't seen the special episode! Who falls in love with Sano? The rival guy? cos they totally kissed in that other episode...

My favourite character is that pretty one who says "I've graduated from redundancy!" in the last episode. I can never remember any on the names, I watched them all in one big go with some friends and we were too busy cracking up at the so-ridiculous-it's-awesome style of j-tv.

I don't remember who that was...I watched them all pretty much at once too.

And yes, it's the rival guy! It was really cute, he made lunch for Sano and was all nervous and then opened a box with some food made into a big heart. And he has flashbacks of the kiss and gets all giddy. Then Sano's like, "wtf" and the guy starts crying and says it was his first kiss and runs out of the room cursing Sano.

It's pretty awesome.

I know, great timing huh? I'm fine, though, I've got a Boosh marathon planned, and perhaps a little of that chocolatey horror you mentioned, with emphasis on the 'chocolate' part.

Thanks ♥
