Holiday Exchange?

Hey, guys! Who's up for a

~*~Creative Holiday Exchange~*~?

I know we probably all celebrate different stuff in different ways, but it seems like it might be fun to do a no-pressure, casual swap of creative energy. Whatever you like doing--drawing, writing, voice acting, crafting, whatever--, why not gift people with your awesomeness, and beg for cool stuff from them in return? No deadlines, no requirements, no hard-and-fast commitments, just offers to produce something as you can.

No need to use it, but I figured something like this might be appropriate:



Go nuts!

Charity Stuff~ <3

 I admit, I'm not very good at sales pitches. I really sucked at selling cookies for Girl Scouts, when I was still in it. XD;; So I'm not going to try and write this myself. Instead, I'll steal from a friend:

orin brought this project to my attention. A friend of hers is trying to raise $1600 for two charities with less than two weeks to go.



The charities involved are:

- NY chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
- Asha for Education (which supports educational programs for underprivileged kids in India).

All of the proceeds from this project go to these charities.


Yanking this shamelessly from aravist:

‘आशा = "asha" = "hope" in Hindi
hope of finding a cure
hope for treatment to make it more manageable
hope for a chance to learn and make it out of the destitute situation you were born into’


From orin:

MS has no cure. The degrees to which it takes a hold of people varies. But it is never easy, and the research going into it can change people's lives. And for me at least, it is personal. That is why I offer a personal take on it because I’m just one person but there are so many others out there who are dealing with it and worse.

More about Asha for Education:

1. To provide education to underprivileged children in India.
2. To encourage the formation of various local groups across the world to reach out to larger sections of the population.
3. To support and cooperate with persons and groups already engaged in similar activities.
4. To raise the required human and other resources to achieve the group objectives.
5. To provide opportunities to individuals living outside India who wish to participate in Asha activities in India.
6. To address, whenever possible, other issues affecting human life such as health care, environment, socio-economic aspects and women's issues.

(Via Asha for Education)


Privilege is something many of us are familiar with, in so many shapes and forms. Most of us finished high school or college, or are attending a university at the moment. Most of us had a choice, roofs over our heads, food and clean water, and clothes to wear. Most of us know the privilege of having control over our motor functions.

The money going to these two charities will help fund these two extremely important causes, and every dollar counts.

If the goal of $1600 is not reached by October 1st, the charities will get nothing (and those who pledge money will have their pledges returned).

We are so close to the goal -- only $368 away, and I am hoping that each of you are willing to show some support by pledging even just $1. And if you feel like you can't even give up a dollar, or don't have a means of payment online, (as is the case with me) then please spread the word by reposting this on your journal or link your friends to it.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS. Make this go viral. We need as much word of mouth and awareness as we can get on this project.

There are only two weeks left, and the money that will be raised to help these charities will go a very long way.

EDIT:
Another friend brought an also awesome charity thing to my attention, though this one is more long-term, and can help a ton of different causes at the individual level! Check out http://www.kiva.org to look at how you can deposit a little money and help a lot of people with it by turns.

Holy shit, an update?!

A tiny thing I wrote for a new friend, the hopefully soon-to-be Hidan-mun at kannagara_rpg. Untitled, Hidan-centric, mostly internal exposition, a surprisingly tame and tiny piece with absolutely nothing objectionable about it.... not even any swearing, seriously. Have fun with it! (And no, that cut-text is not a euphemism. I swear.)


........Look, I'm actually updating~! ♥



Hidan polished his pike.Collapse )

ANOTHER meme

So, sub_textual tagged me with ZETSU. Oh god, here we go:

1. Do you like this character?

I guess so! I mean, I think he's interesting, even though he's had like, all of five minutes of screen-time, max, and a grand total of like ONE character-developing/personality-revealing pieces of dialogue. I've only seen like one other person play him seriously, (though I'd love to see more) and I helped that muse get cultivated. XD I know I'm not doing him justice, but then again, canon AND fanon aren't, either. So at least I'm doing something with him, even if I'll have to potentially retcon the hell out of him later if he ever gets any development. It's kind of fun to try and reason shit out, even if I am totally off the mark.

2. What name(s) do you give this character?

.....ffffff XD Zetzet, Zetsy, Zesty, Plantman, Aloe Vera, Dumb Man, Pet/Lap Plant.... Or just Zetsu. All depends on what I feel like and who I'm talking to and what about and stuff like that. =P

3.What image/color do you associate your character with?

Green and red! And/or black and white. :3 And sunny paths winding through dark, twisted woods with creatures with creepy glowing eyes lurking in the shadows, watching.

4.What image/song do you associate with this character?

Iiiiii actually haven't really found any serious songs that I associate with him. (XD Help? Suggestions? Please? ♥) But on the humorous side, I associate him with "Carrot Juice Is Murder" by The Arrogant Worms, seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kcKCYoTZF8&feature=related

It.... sort of seems to fit? XD He's sort of a plant/vegetable, he's in a terrorist group, and according to the anime, (if you read into the visuals a little) he fights for both "land" and "ideology". (I know officially people say just land, but he's shown half and half for this thing, part for each reason, and the anime focused in on the characters the reasons were relevant to.) He seems to me like he could very easily fit into a type of freedom fighter mold.

Not sure if this is humor or serious or somewhere in between, but I kinda like Out There from The Hunchback of Notre Dame for him, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DCALg2levk His looks aren't the most conventional sort, after all, and he's kind of a pawn even to those who take care of and accept him.

5. What blood type do you think he is?

I know his blood type is B! :3 I checked. ♥ And according to Japanese blood-type type stuff: "Result oriented and strong minded, type B people will start a job and continue until it is completed, and completed well. Type B people are the individualists of the blood groups and find their own way in life."

It sort of agrees with my conception, sort of doesn't. I'm frankly a little surprised that Kishimoto didn't pick AB, to emphasize his split: "Type AB people are the split personalities of the blood groups. They can be both outgoing and shy in the same time, confident and timid. They are usually responsible, but too much responsibility will cause problem. They are trustworthy and like to help others." That would've fit a bit better with my mental image. XD But whatever.

6. Of all the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?

I dunno, I'm kind of a panshipper, honestly. XD I like seeing things switched up. Pein and Madara (even though I do enjoy PeKo a lot) are probably my favorites to pair with him, just because he's so completely loyal to them that it does feel fitting that he would give his body and heart over to them as well as his services.

Deidara is fun too, because they're so incredibly different, and Zetsu might be a little dazzled by him, even as Deidara would probably see him as an exotic toy and a challenge. It'd be dysfunctional, but it might work, at least for a bit.

I think him and Kisame together would actually be a surprisingly healthy relationship. The way I view their temperaments, they would mesh well, and the otherness they both share could potentially be an attractor, not to mention help them accept and cope with their own. They'd understand each other, balance each other out, and just generally be a good thing with the potential for a lot of interesting dynamics.

I've never really considered him too much with any of the good guys.... But thinking about it a little, I think I actually might like to see how it went with him and either Tenten or Hinata on the female side, and Shino or Kiba on the male side. I know most people favor Sakura or Ino IF they ever do that sort of crossing over, just because of the flower connections.... still, that's kind of hard to see, for me. They're just too rooted in Konoha and loyal and sure of themselves and whatnot; I don't know. Hinata and Tenten are kind of marginalized and overlooked and distanced a lot of times, not with a firm identity of their own, and Shino and Kiba both have a fair bit of other to them as well, a connection to nature that a lot of characters lack.

For Sand kids, maybe Gaara, given the whole blood thing and split with pre and post-Shukaku personalities and whatnot.... Yeah, I don't know. That could be interesting, could not be.

7. What do you want to say to this character?

I'd tell him that he needs to stop defining himself so much through other people--and to accept who and what he is/needs/wants.

8. What do you want to do with this character?

I'd like to get him more comfortable in his own skin and with the idea that he can admit to needing to connect with people instead of trying to rely purely on himself. I'd like to see him maybe get past how socially retarded he can be and learn more how to cope with the outside world, but I'd still kind of like to explore his dependency on having other people guide/control/dictate his life for him. He really needs to either stop being so damned contradictory or embrace the contradictions. XD

Tagging 5 people: Uhhhh..... let's see.... maiiau with Deidara, sub_textual with Madara, helicopini and hieronymousb with their Pein and Konan, and toize with Mio~ ♥

*was totally conned into this*

Stolen from nikkis_musebox:

"The first five people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead."

Name your pairing, and any other relevant details such as a prompt. You can chose weird pairings or themes if you like. Your vignette may come in dialogue form or story form, who knows. It has to be something I've actually heard of, so no pulling random pairings out of your ass, if you please.


So yeah, my own muse-list is here. Fffffff dammit Nikki. XD

Memelet~

Blatantly stolen word-for-word from the lovely toize:

Give me a character I play and a question/topic about them and I will answer according to my own personal canon. This can range from their birthday, favorite color or even their earliest memory up to what they had last night for dinner.

So, this is just a good thing to have, I think. A structured means of writing about stuff in your life! I really like these; they help me a lot. But then again, I'm a psychology major; I'm strange like that. So.... yes. Putting this under a cut to spare people's F-lists. If I'm on any, that is. =P



 
This is for my use, and everyone else's--gank at will, people. If you want, you can credit me as Infinity at o0famous_amos0o. If not, fine. Not like I have a monopoly on this sort of thing; I just cobbled it together. Anyway, enjoy! ♥
