I must be insane, but I am going to be trying to claim Robin Hood and Lady Marian from the 2006 BBC version of Robin Hood for the 7 Deadly Sins challenge!

1. Greed. 2. Gluttony. 3. Wrath.
4. Sloth. 5. Envy. 6. Lust.
7. Pride.

Okay, I'm freaking out more than a little right now. First of all, this is one of, if not the, most deeply personal stories I've ever penned and decided to share. It's also my very first foray into the wonderful world of True Blood, after hours upon hours of watching the show and videos as well as reading the books and many, many wonderful stories. So please, let me know what you think if you stumble upon this! Constructive criticism is very much welcome!

"Twenty years ago, she had fallen deeply in love with the thousand year old Viking vampire. Many things had changed since that wonderful night in the cubby, but the love she felt for Eric Northman and the regret she felt over her actions afterwards had never wavered."Collapse )

Okay, so tonight I got drunk. (I think I deserved it after the past couple of months!) But anyway. I got really curious about what my writing would look like drunk (and my muse has been kind of playing hide and seek with me lately) so I decided to take a 15 minute ficlet challenge and find out.

Now, I am following the rules to the letter and not editing it or anything. I am also choosing to post it while still drunk because I know that if I don't, I might not. (One of those "might seem like a bad idea in the morning" kind of things.)

So without further ado, here is my drunken 15minuteficlets (challenge 194) for Robin Hood BBC

Okay, so it's been a while... Ilex and I did not end up getting married but we are still together. :) I've been on the truck with hom for around six months or so and our third anniversary is in November.

 

I don't really like being on the truck though. It might be different if we could pull into places and sightsee but the tourist-y places generally aren't truck friendly so we can't. It is pretty cool to see new things from the truck though.

 

But in a month or two I will be back home and hopefully starting college soon! He is going to team so that I can go back to school, something I've always wanted to do. I'm going to miss him a lot but I'm excited at the same time.

 

My friend is pretty excited too. She's missed me a lot while I've been gone and I missed her too. Ilex doesn't get it because he's a guy. Girls know exactly what I'm talking about.

 

In other news, I'm looking forward to maybe working with kids again soon too. I was hired through Care.com shortly before I got on the truck and I was reminded of how much I love kids. I'm hoping to either find semi-regular work as a babysitter or work at the local daycare again. I'll be going to school online so it should work out. :)

 

Well... That's all I have for now!

Okay so it's been quite a while since I posted over here. So, what's new with me? Not just a whole lot, honestly.

I'm no longer working at Pizza Hut (or anywhere at the moment) and I'm engaged to be married on April 12! :) He drives a truck over the road and it's hard sometimes but I thank God every day that the Work Force gave him the chance to expand his education and learn to do something that he enjoys. I can't wait to marry this man!

Ooh, and I'm reconnecting with my long-lost best buddy Mandy!!!

That's really about it unless I start gushing about my new fandom loves (Robin Hood BBC and Merlin!)... Oh, wait, I guess I can do that!!!

I stole this from southrnbygrace

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2. Once Upon a Time
3. Robin Hood (BBC, 2006)
4. Merlin
5. The OC

I'm rather on the bored side so I've decided to have fun looking up my name on Urban Dictionary and doing Google searches for "(myalias) looks like" on Google. Fun Friday/pre-birthday night, right???

Here goes!

Urban Dictionary:

A women named Amanda is typically very beautiful with an incredible body and nice eyes. They are known to be very loveable. Amandas are envied by other women.
1. Damnnn, Amanda's lookin' fine today, as usual.
2. I wish I was Amanda, shes so pretty and nice!

a woman who doesn't take shit from anyone, even her own parents. She does things her way when she wants where she wants how she wants with who she wants
i love lucy's attitude. it's an amanda attitude.

A shorter version of 'Amanda,' Mandas are typically very pretty girls who wear cute clothes and talk a lot about sex. They are much friendlier than Amandas.
"Amanda is such a bitch."
"Luckily, Manda was there to save the day. What a sweetheart!"

Okay, so I am now a HUGE fan of Urban Dictionary. They have very accurate definitions. :-D

"____ looks like"

I think Amanda looks like a dark haired Janelle, anybody else ...
Amanda looks like she is pouting here. I really don't remember ...
Amanda looks like the girl Katie White from the ting tings! | Facebook

Okay... That was strange. But the UD one was fun, even if it didn't kill much time. Meh. I promise to do a real update just as soon as I have something interesting to talk about besides "I sit at home surfing want ads, hang out with my boyfriend and best friend, and go fill out job applications". Who wants to listen to that?

So I just wrote my first Flowers in the Attic ficlet! It's based on a 15 minute word prompt, so allow me to LJ-cut it. I am really nervous so please review! Let me know what you think :)

I want to go back to believing in everything and knowing nothing at all...Collapse )

So I have updated my profile and changed my header and many of my icons! Check it out! scars_proach 

Long ago I was introduced to the sordid world of the Dresden Dolls, also known as the Dollangangers, and I have been slowly falling back in love over the past week or so. VC Andrews wrote amazing gothic horror that truly leaves you feeling just a little dirty afterwards... and I love it!

In case I've confused you, my journal is now totally "Flowers in the Attic". :) And if you don't know what Flowers in the Attic is, allow me to explain!

It's the 1979 book that tells the story of four children--Chris Jr, Cathy, and the twins Cory and Carrie--who have lived a charmed life up until their father's 36th birthday, when they lose their beloved father. Corrine, their mother, is penniless without him so they go to live with her parents... But what the children don't know is the horror that awaits them in the foreboding Foxworth mansion.

I don't want to give away much more than that, but if you haven't read this series I definitely recommend that you pick it up.

Um, but anyways. I would update this thing a lot more if I had a more exciting life but mostly I'm hanging out with my boyfriend, my best friend, filling out job applications, or sitting around the house. Not really all that much to update about, you know? But I'll try harder to live a more exciting life.

But till then, I'm gone.

So, I was sitting at Lowes today waiting for the boyfriend to get off work when what do I happen to see sitting across the parking lot from me? A Carter BloodCare donation 'coach'.

Now I am a self-professed 'I-B Positive'* person, but I manage to overcome my condition when it comes to something this important. And I often get asked why I like to give blood. Now I'm gonna go with the short answer, so don't quit reading yet.

The short answer is because of the cool shirts. ;-) No, actually it just feels really good to know that one pint of my blood is enough to potentially save three people's lives. Selfish? Maybe. But who hasn't seen the episode of Friends where Phoebe tries to disprove Joey's position that every good deed is a ultimately a selfish act?

So go give blood already!!!

*I-B Positive is from Bruce Almighty--"I-B positive they ain't sticking me with no needles!"
