If you would like to be my friend, comment here and say where ya know me from and/or what we have in common. I'm pretty easy going about it, so it is likely I will friend ya back.

I'm not really into the whole having 'friends I don't talk to' thing, so if you never comment or post & after a few months I look at your user name & can't figure out who you are... it's likely you'll get cut. I find the lurker thing a little creepy... but I might make exceptions if you introduce yourself at the very least :)

"I know that if I ever meet someone else it will be a different relationship because we are soulmates."

the words resonates through me, tumbling through my mind, unending.

it is what I wanted.  so much so.  and yet the echoes feel like taunting.

i am a child who wants what she was promised.  a prince on a horse.

i should know better.  i am independent.  strong.  life never is ever after.

i want my movie ending.  but that feels wrong.  this is beautiful and wonderful.  should be cherished not railed against.

what is the physical? and why is it so necessary to have both in one place?

soulmates.  a gift.

I've always loved that line in the song.  So vivid and true.  Ok.  So I drank an entire bottle of wine tonight.  I was watching House of Cards & it was fabulous.  Internet.  I'm worried I'm in love with my best friend.  I think in it's entirely awful of my heart to
do this to me.  But I suppose it was unavoidable.  He understands me as no one else does...
And if he was female this wouldn't be a thing.  But it is and I hate it.

Also.  I miss you LJ.  I dunno who will read this, but i miss you & the community we created here.

Melodrama suits my mood. IM THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD
I know, just know
from the tips of my toes to the crown of my head
that if I could just write the words would flow

They would change the world.  As we knew it.  Or as I knew it.  (the difference mute)

But this pen is cheap & broken.  Fate is telling me I'm not ready
As Destiny laughs in the corner (fickle bitch that she is)

...and I wonder why I ask them at all.

I love Doctor Who.  I've loved Doctor Who for years... but I have to say, I was looking forward to Moffat's take (I love Blink, Girl in the fireplace & Silence in the Library) & am terribly disappointed.  I love love loooooved The Doctor's Wife (and while I might be forgetting an episode), I think that's the only one I adored.

there be SPOILERS hereCollapse )
I miss Ten.  And Donna.

My comic knowledge is pretty pathetic.  I've read quite a few Alan Moore graphic novels, enjoyed Y- The Last Man, and Unwritten, adore Fables... but the mainstream hero-based comics have always intimidated me.  I didn't know where to start, and the idea of 50 plus years of stories to catch up on, overwhelmed me, and I'm just not the type who likes to start in the middle... so I just never have.  Until recently.

I have a friend who loves and collects a plethora of comics. She overheard me complaining to a friend that there aren't really in female characters in wheelchairs to cosplay as, and she said, "Yes there is!  Oracle!  And she's seriously bad ass!"  Oracle (for the people like me who had no idea) is Barbara Gordon (original Batgirl) who gets shot by the Joker paralyzing her.  Instead of giving up, she becomes Oracle computer expert, and information broker for all of the masked vigilante underground (notably the bat crew), and leads the female super hero group Birds of Prey.  To say I was EXCITED about this would be a huge understatement.  I almost couldn't believe that there was such a character!!!!  Not only a female in a wheelchair, but one that was respected, intelligent, independent, AND held her own in a world of supers.

I've complained from time to time about the lack of disabled characters in mainstream entertainment.  The vast majority of whom are on Lifetime movie channel stories about miracles, or comic relief (see: Mean Girls).  I definitely give props to Glee for Artie.  He's the first main character in a popular tv show in a wheelchair that I can ever recall.  And from what I've seen of Glee, they treat his disability well.  

SO.  I jumped on it.  I've read 70 issues in the past couple weeks.  And I LOVE HER.  I'm actually surprised about how much it means to me to read about such a character.  She's fierce, intelligent, and absolutely vital to the happenings in Gotham and beyond.  And while she spends most of her time in a darkened room wtih computers, she still manages to be compelling.  But when she needs to, she kicks ASS with what she has.  

The DC reboot that I'm sure most of you have heard of, starts in a day or so.  I was excited to learn they'd be rebooting Birds of Prey... but... then I read that the Batgirl reboot was going to Barbara Gordon.  Walking Barbara Gordon.  I was really sad.  I understand that she was one of the more icon Batgirls, and why they would want her back in the role.  But it saddens me to lose the only strong female parapelgic character in mainstream entertainment that there is.  I have a lot of ~feelings about it.  Mostly disappointed, and sad ones.  I'm surprised at the depth of them considering I'm a relatively very new fan.  She was the only one, ya know?  Just sucks that I just discovered it, and it's over.  Not that I won't enjoy reading the 60 or so issues I have left!  And who knows?  Maybe the reboot will put her in the chair again.

Anyhoo this article is much more articulate, and states everything better than I can: Give Batgirl the Chair  & the rebuttal Batgirl and the Legion of Sadistic Disability Fetishists

2. Post your photographs in an entry at the end of that day, sometime after the last picture is taken.
3. Add a title only. Do not explain the photos unless prompted.
4. It will be fantastic.

Inspired by teaberryblue I made Wordles of my hogwarts_elite applications. This is the first one:
Wordle: Untitled

And my most recent re-sort:

Wordle: Untitled

I think it's interesting that THINK is the most prominent in both. And that GET, THINGS, WAY is also prominent. hahaha. I'm hoping LIKE isn't due to my very conversational style writing. My Valley Girl is showing through. Yay for LOVE and UNDERSTAND.

I actually re-did them both because I was afraid I didn't copy/paste properly since they are so similar. Apparently I'm pretty much the same!
