25th Birthday

Sooooo, I'm 25 today. That's...kind of a terrifying thought. Um. Anyway.

Seems like I should post some kind of retrospective or something. Well, it'll be a little hard considering I've been in serious hikikomori mode for more than 2 years (yeah let's not talk about that right now, okay? okay.) but I'll do what I can.

Productive or Self-Improving Things I Have Done Since I Dropped Off The Face Of The Earth A While Back:
1) Had A Job (the tutoring job I did mention a while back; it was enjoyable and intellectually stimulating and I would definitely be willing to do it again)
2) Taken Japanese Classes (Beginner 1 and Beginner 2 extramural classes offered by the Linguistics department; hoping to continue to Intermediate 1 at some point)
3) Taken Kulintang Playing Classes (more extramural classes, offered by the College of Music)
4) Gone To The Library Of Congress And Gotten An ID Card So I Could Sit And Read In The Main Reading Room For One Afternoon (...self-explanatory)


I had a surprisingly respectable fannish output for the year 2012.

for marvel_bang I illustrated harborshore's great Natasha-and-Bucky (pairings: Natasha/Clint/Coulson, Bucky/Steve) story:

ART for "This Time It Wasn't The End" by harborshore (two pictures, one Natasha&Bucky, one Natasha/Clint/Coulson and Steve/Bucky)

---

for Kaleidoscope, I created three things:

My Teacher is a Gangster (Gokusen, OMCs, background Shin/Yankumi, 1105 words)
Kuraki Akito was convinced that his teacher was a yakuza.

Writing South (Eighteen Songs of a Nomad Flute, Cai Wenji's older son, 1246 words)
Once having turned away, forever there shall be no news from my children.

fanmix: Whistle Down The Wind (Kaze Hikaru, Sei/Soji and ensemble, 14 songs)
every signal that you send / until the very end / i will not abandon you, my precious friend

---

I wrote a few ACD Holmes ficlets at sherlock60; I'd like to rejoin and write some more in the coming year:
5 ficlets of 60 words each (some Holmes/Watson and some gen, 60x5=300)

---

for the kakairu_fest Autumn drabble round I created a lot of little things; not the most impressive stuff but at least I was using my creative muscles at all...

Babysitting (104 words)
Underneath (313 words)
Two short and mildly nonsensical ficlets.

Hero (500 words)
This one I actually like quite a bit. I have the ambition to expand it into a longer story but...well...this is me we're talking about.

three semi-educational(?) chibi pencil sketches...
カカシは上忍です
イルカは中忍です
ナルトはまだ下忍です
(remember the part about the beginner Japanese classes? Yeah, this is actually part of how I remember 上/中/下. Shoot me now, please?)

my dream goes wandering
Like the ficlet I actually like, this drawing I actually rather like; it's not bad for a quick experiment in digital art. My parents got an iPad several months ago and I've been occasionally stealing it to practice digital art. And, y'know, to play games... >_>


and now after all the awkward retrospective stuff:
GUESS WHAT MY BIRTHDAY MOVIE TREAT IS
It was going to be The Hobbit but then while looking up what time it was showing I ran into a banner ad for the RUROUNI KENSHIN LIVE ACTION MOVIE and nearly died of shock because I had been resigned to waiting for the DVD release but NO, IT IS ACTUALLY SHOWING IN SM CINEMAS RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

BEST UNEXPECTED BIRTHDAY TREAT EVER.
