Thank you all, my lovelies, for the b-day wishes! You are a basket of awesome and sparkles and I am so very grateful for having you around *squishes all of you* This has been the best birthday ever, no lie! I had a lovely dinner with a bunch of friends yesterday evening and we had all the laughs and tasty food (and delish sparkling wine at midnight :9) and then today there was an avalance of birthday wishes and my sister gave me her present and it's the Escaflowne boxset, I have been pining after it for years! And my parents got me a kindle omg brb downloading all of AO3 and some sent me v-gifts (of a "tied up Andrew Garfield who is slightly unattractive" and I know who you are, dear anon!) and then chaoticallyclev
made me stupily adorable icons (say hi to my new default one! It's a wombat! That clutches at flowers like I clutch at feelings!) and angelgazing
got me paid time and delires
wrote me the most charming and precious ficlet
and I almost feel guilty with the aumount of love I received today.... ILU ALL LIKE CRAZY! I wish I could teleport all over the places and offer you cake and hugs and kisses <3333
In news unrelated to my birthday, I went to see Hugo with my sister last week and I still have to come to terms with the fact that I cried like a baby for half of the movie (which is something that only ever happens with cartoons). I would fire you all for not telling me how beautiful this film is, but I'm too busy looking for the fandom at the moment... where is it?
Been listening to a lot of Fun. and Ed Sheran, been humming along all the while. I am in the middle of finishing up the last of the doodles from the Valentine Fest so expect them to pop up soon :) Also also! I just found out that apparently i_reversebang
is going to run again this year! It's like the universe decided to hand me over all the good things today \o/
And now a meme from angelgazing
because it's been a while :DThe iPod Shuffle Meme!
No, not that one. Let's be honest, when we need inspiration, the first place we go is our music library. So let's try something a little bit different. My music library is no help to me, but maybe it can be for someone else. Here's how this thing works:
1) Comment to this post, and I'll give you a prompt in the form of whatever song shuffles up next on whatever music player I've got going at the time.
2) Turn on the music player of your choice to shuffle, post this to your own journal and dole out prompts. No, you can't hide your shameful music. If it shuffles up, that's the gig.
3) Write/draw/whatever way you create for the prompt you've been given: post it. Again, no hiding the shame. Even if you think it's awful, post it.
4) Link your finished product to the prompt comment, because it's always lovely to see the results. ♥
