You are a fantastic person, and I can't wait to get started!

Just a reminder, for anyone interested, or anyone who maybe didn't see my post before.

I'm auctioning 10,000 words of DC fanfic for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan . The bidding is currently up to $150



I'm thrilled and flattered XD. I didn't expect the bid to go so high! (I was kind of scared that no-one would bid at all, actually.)

The bidding closes on the 31st, just in case anyone's looking to challenge the current bid-holder...

*flails around a little*


iesika: (jason is skeptical)
Quick, someone tell me I'm not insane.

I've been meaning to post to [livejournal.com profile] help_japan, and didn't get around to it until just now. In a moment of bravado... I offered 10,000 words of DC fanfiction for auction.

That's right, folks. I am offering 10,000 (up to 15,000!) words. I would much, much appreciate it if, if you're not personally interested in placing a bid, you help me get the word around to those you think might be.

I talk about T a lot, and I'm not sure who, outside me closest internet friends, knows who she is. T's my primary client as a caregiver - a 15 year old girl with Downs Syndrome (and probably undiagnosed autism). She's a complete and total handful - she hasn't gotten a lot of the care, attention, therapy, and basic life skills training she should have, by this point in her life, and every day is like a crash course, trying to a) keep her from doing anything *too* socially unacceptable in public and b) catch her up. She still doesn't understand concepts like money (other than she can trade a dollar bill for an icee at the place we go sometimes), or the days of the week. 

I am going to miss her terribly when I move.

When I picked her up from school today, she and her teacher came out to the car, and she gave me a pair of earrings. They're very simple - red and blue glass beads on one of those pin set-ups you can buy at the craft store. She told me they were for me. Her teacher told me that they were supposed to make jewelry for their mothers today, but T kept insisting they were for me. And had been talking all day about how she was going to give them to me.

I thanked her and hugged her and took them out of the bag to look at them, and asked if she'd picked out the beads herself. She leaned over in the car, touched the red bead and said "Red!" and sat back looking pleased (red is her favorite color) and just as I was translating from T speak that she had in fact picked out the beads, she leaned back over, touched the blue bead, touched my arm, and said "Blue!" (The bead was just my favorite shade of blue.)

And then she was very confused because I started crying. I had to unbuckle to squeeze her properly XD. I'm going to miss her so much. And now I've got something she made me that I can keep. I've got pictures she's drawn and cards and things, Christmas ornaments we made together. She made these for me by herself, though, and picked the pieces out special and... I'm tearing up again. ;_;
iesika: (aw yeah)
I was chatting with someone last night and realized I hadn't made a post about this...

I'm moved into my new apartment (which is a total lemon. I've had to call maintenance over and over), but I'm already looking at another move... Across the country.

When I was out in California last year, visiting [livejournal.com profile] kirax2 , I got a job offer in San Diego, which came with the offer of very reasonably priced living space. Just recently, I finally gave an official "yes". So, sometime this summer, probably at the end of June, I'm going to be packing up and moving all the way across the country, to a city I've visited twice, over a thousand miles from my family and the place I've lived me whole life.

I'm excited as all hell, and I keep having panic attacks and crazy mood swings (sorry,[livejournal.com profile] faile_neume ) and this is the biggest thing I've ever done. I haven't told my family I took the job. I think I'm going to do it on Friday, and that's giving me a whole 'nother set of issues.

I want to keysmash forever. That's not very productive, though.

On the plus side, this means I'll be 1.3 miles from Comicon. Not that I have tickets or anything, because I'm afraid to spend a discretionary cent because this move is going to be expensive, and I'll be paying double rent for a few months, too.

I keep deleting keysmashes. My head is about to explode.

The lovely lady this is for totally knows who she is. <3



Yeah, okay, I know it's weird. But I was looking at Unfortunate Valentines, and this just... LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSIONS. And he's got a mustache. I had to.

Haaaad tooooo!

Wallpapers




Free for the taking, though please don't repost without asking. A few of these are simple crops, but most of them took a lot of time and modification.

If your monitor doesn't fit any of the ratios offered here, and you're interested in wallpapers by me, let me know in the comments, maybe along with your favorite characters. I won't promise anything, but when I get bored and want to do something visual, I do go looking for ideas based on what my friends want to see. <3


reaaaaallly image heavy )

Okay, so. I get my keys tomorrow and start moving the little things. Furniture help will be Saturday. After that, I have to unpack and put away and buy all the things I need to buy. So I'll be not around too much for the next few days. I'm only taking a short break right now because I've been loading my trunk with stuff and the last few boxes were HEAVY.

So, of course, I have an overwhelming urge to write.

...which will probably be gone next week, because that's how I apparently roll.







Godfuckingdamnit. I hate strenuous physical activity SO MUCH! (yes, I know, lazy. DISHES ARE HEAVY!)

Title: Not Quite a Nightmare.
Author:[livejournal.com profile] iesika 
Summary: Bruce's subconscious is a scary place. But you knew that.
Warnings: This story may or may not contain dubious consent. It's possible Bruce is just crazy.
Pairing/Characters: Bruce/Jason. Maybe.
Notes: No, I'm not quite sure, either. Written for [livejournal.com profile] pornday .

This is one of those semi-obligatory "I am still alive" posts. I've spent the last two months making gifts for the holidays during all my spare time, and, as soon as the party I got volunteered to co-host tonight is over, I have to start packing, because I'm moving from one apartment to another in less than a month. 

I'm having a bit of a slump, mood-wise. I think it's mostly stress, though there's family stuff going on I won't go into detail about here. It's subtle and passive aggressive and would take too long to try and explain. 

I'm taking a little break for a few minutes... I've been cooking and cleaning for two days, but I had to sit down for a minute, in the middle of scrubbing the bathroom, because my audiobook just finished and I had to transfer over the next one ASAP. Here, have a recommendation, via [livejournal.com profile] neopeius , who turned me onto the series: David Brin's Uplift books are fantastically amazingly wonderful. Because you want to read a murder mystery set inside the sun, You really do. It's harder to explain the delicious cat-and-mouse hunt under the oceans of a poisonous world, in the second book - more like The Enemy Below had a baby with the Lord of the Flies, but with space battles and atavistic dolphins.

I'm also going to share a recipe because it is to die for.

Microwave fudge: 

3 cups chocolate chips (or, in the case of my second batch, half chocolate and half peanut butter baking chips.)
1 can condensed milk
1/4 c butter

Microwave on half power for 3 minutes. Stir. If it's not all melted, give it another minute and stir again. Pour into a greased or plastic-wrap lined 8x8 pan and let cool. Cut into squares. TA DA. Proceed to make yourself sick.  (Fudge for breakfast =/= good idea)

Title: The Robin Wife
Characters: Bruce, Dick
Rating: This part pg-13 (non-explicit adult themes)
Summary: A lonely hermit's act of kindness earns him a devoted companion.
Notes: For au_bingo (prompt: Fantasy and Supernatural, Author's Choice). I went with animal bride folktale. This story was very much inspired by listening to The Decemberists Crane Wife, though it doesn't  follow the same plot as that Japanese folktale. Thanks as ever to [livejournal.com profile] kirax2  for reading it over for me, and to [livejournal.com profile] stalinglim  for reminding me this was in progress and needed to be finished, and to [livejournal.com profile] munnin_odanin  and her Latin-speaking-housemate for double-checking my use of the pluperfect <3.
Words: 1900

First part here.

Part 2 )

Title: Snap
Characters/Pairing: Tim, Dick
Rating: PG
Prompt: Tim(/author's choice), why Tim doesn't take photographs anymore.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] the_protagonist  on the anniversary of her birth. <3



Snap, snap, snap goes the shutter in Tim's brain )

PAR-TAY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] the_protagonist

Leave some prompts in the comments, hon, and we'll see what we can do for you on your special day! <3
iesika: (BatDick)
We were supposed to be doing a haunted house in our apartment tomorrow, but M unilaterally declared it canceled, a few hours ago (after I'd already spent a good bit of time working on biological and radioactive hazard signs, but thankfully I said something to her about it *before* I went and bought the dry ice)

So, no awesome mad-science themed haunted house.

I think I am going to say fuck them and set up a little table outside our door, and do wacky home mad science for the kiddies. Who wants glow in the dark slime? Because I've got enough ingredients to make a few buckets full.

It also doesn't help that there's a Halloween party tonight that I haven't been invited to. There is a possibility I was meant to be invited but P and M are just total flakes and never actually passed on the message. Considering the party is at some time tonight, and neither of them has told me what time the party is, I can only assume I'm not going. I don't think I want to, at this point. If they don't want me there, then fuck them all sideways anyway. B would want me there, but she's sick, so she won't be there either. I might go bring her soup or something instead, but frankly, I just want to rp a disturbing encounter with family-man-Bruce and finish the thread with the-jason-who-has-a-bar and maybe try and finish the shawl I'm making for my sister.

Oh. I should probably say something here. I made a new character, in [livejournal.com profile] dcu6wordstories . His name is [livejournal.com profile] king_jay . He's standing on a street corner over here.
iesika: (boot)


Fuck yeah I am awesome. I am so rad, I glow in the dark. Literally.

You can't really tell well from the picture... hopefully I will get some proper ones on Halloween itself (though I will have a different suit then) - but I am glowing in half a dozen places, my face is melted, I am covered in slime, and my suit says RADI-TEC WASTE REMOVAL (and the back is a huge radioactive warning symbol). Also, all my goop was black light reactive.

Anyway, I took 2nd place at our apartment complex's Halloween party, tonight (a wee bit bitter since the person who won 1st was dressed as a witch), and M got third for her "pirate booty", so between the two of us, we got $175 knocked off our rent for the month.

The suit is just painted coveralls, expertly modified with sharpie (everyone thought I'd bought it as was), and I was wearing clean booties, black rubber gloves, the melted face mask and respirator, and a ton of slime and paint. The slime was made out of borax and glue. There were glowsticks secreted all over my person.

It was motherfucking awesome.

But the coolest thing? My downstairs neighbor told me that for Halloween? He has an actual hazmat suit, and I am free to do whatever I like to it.

Sucked in

[livejournal.com profile] faile_neume  has been linking me to interesting threads in [livejournal.com profile] dcu6wordstories  for a few weeks now and I've been resisting joining the fray.

But.

Um.

Possibly [livejournal.com profile] kirax2  and I ended up talking about something we wrote a while ago and now we're RPing the Tim and Alfred of all DOOOOM.
