So...I guess I should do something with this. I really didn't intend to just dump it all and wander off, but that's what happens when you're fleeing on a moment's notice and then your computer goes down for four months.

Those who know me will know that is a more common occurance than it should be.

But that's the thing: nobody knows me here. I literally don't have any friends on this journal yet. But it feels like my old Livejournal, my old internet home-base that I've had since 2003. But it's not. There's a part of me that feels like this should be an official Introduction Post, while another part of me is thinking, "That's ridiculous. This is your place. Your entire history is here."

It doesn't help that I wasn't planning on adding anymore people to my LJ, either. I had more or less accepted the fact that LJ was dead, but I was content to be there, safe being a Friends Lock, where I could post my private thoughts and writing snippets and the only people who would see it were those who'd known me for years and years. But now that I've decided that I'm not okay with this gathering dust, I'm also not okay with being alone.

So. Wanna be friends?

What we can expect here: Well, towards the end of LJ I was posting a lot of week-in-review posts just to keep it going, so I'll probably be doing some version of that. (It might not be exactly once a week, though, since my routine has changed.) I also post a lot through Camp NaNo in March/April and NaNoWriMo in October/November, so you'll see a lot of my writing stuff then. (That's the main reason the place is Friends Locked.) There will also be snippets of my regular life, updates on my beloeved Memphis Grizzlies and probably a lot of politics talk, since that's what's taken over my Twitter in the last 8 months. (Super liberal Democrat/SJW here, but I'm not looking for a fight.)

If that's a ride you wanna come on, then comment below.

I finally finished my first batch of character profiles! Here are my six main-main characters, River City's rookie heroes.
(Note: the Aliases and Affiliations happen in-story, while the histories stop before the start of the story.)
ETA: Okay, apparently LJ can't handle all this awesomeness in one post, so here are the first five, and the last will follow shortly.

For being on a deserted island, Gilligan and the other castaways sure got a lot of visitors. Some of them arrived by accident, while others didn't. Some were friendly, while others weren't. But many of them were memorable.

Who's got two thumbs and got all her Spring Cleaning done in one day? THIS GIRL. Okay, I confess, it was just my room, but considering how long it's been since I did a good clean, it's still pretty impressive.

So now I have some time to finally post these icons I made a few days ago.

So I made an icon journal! Two, actually. There's one on InsaneJournal (here) and one on DreamWidth (here). They're already on my sidebar, too. I didn't make one on LJ because LJ is so dead, and I'm gonna keep posting them here anyway.

So. I'm gonna go try to catch up on "Welcome to NightVale" because everybody's talking about it, so I wanna give it a shot.

Icons! Keep in mind that these are the first ones I've made on the PC instead of making them on my laptop and transferring over. So if they're a bit off from my previous work, that's probably due to the monitor making things look different on this computer. (In particular, I don't think the You've Got Mail icons are my best, but that could also be due to the limited pictures I had to work with.)

1-8: You've Got Mail
9-17: Wimbledon
18-32: Zombieland
33-57: The Hunger Games

So...there's a new update page. I...I think I like it. I like that there's a formatting button for colors, and now apparently you can do Spoilers without using a cut, which is awesome. And you can post pics straight from your computer? That's cool. And being able to see your icons in a drop-down is nice, but not really necessary. (I don't like not being able to see my mood icons. That's not cool.)

And...apparently you can Select tags from an alphabetized drop-down menu. Holy crap.

Guys...this might not suck. This might be good. I don't know how I feel about that. It's...surprising.
