when you tried to kiss me, I only bit your tongue

Do you know how much of Daria fanfiction is out of character? Practically all of it. I'm not even talking about the newer stuff, which firstly, I can't even believe still exists, but even the stuff that dates back to when the show was in it's second season. SO. MUCH. OF. IT. is out of character.

I read primarily exclusively Trent/Daria fic, which probably has a lot to do with it. The problem with Trent/Daria is it would never, ever, in a million years work unless you alter one of their characters slightly or drastically. Trent/Daria appeals to me in the sense that I just wish there had been a make out scene and a bunch of mistakes to at least let Daria get it out of her system, but I get it, not that show. Not meant to ship it (the creator haaaaates that people ship it, which, I don't know, maybe you should have introduced a better love interest for Daria post-Trent that wasn't major drip douchenozzle Tom Sloane.

But as a result, it is nearly twenty years since the show first premiered and I am actively shipping it and reading dramatically out of character fanfiction in hopes of finding something in character and awesome. I've honestly found maybe two? Maybe three, but that's pushing it. The well-written stuff always takes place post college, as it should, but always has Trent cleaning up his act and growing up and getting a job and no. Just give me a hundred fics where Daria comes home to Lawndale after college for break and she and Trent sleep together under some circumstances and it's all good and in character.

A hundred morning after fics, give me all of them and none of this Trent moves to Boston and gets a job as a guitar teacher or a grocery store clerk. None of this Mystik Sprial making it big. "My heart is an open wound/that reads the tea leaves of it's doom/Soothe me with redemptions love/like a heat proof kitchen glove." MYSTIK SPIRAL WOULD NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS MAKE IT BIG. EVER.

Okay, so I just did a friends cut and I deleted a good number of people. This was journals i don't recognize or ones that were old and never updated. It was not at all personal; we just never connected! If you feel you were wronged, or I deleted you by accident (I have done this...) feel free to leave a comment and I will gladly, without question add you back!

what is happening?

Really confused. Is there some sort of LJ notification glitch right now? Cause in the past week I've gotten two notifications that people from my former fandom have re-added my former LJ? I haven't used it in almost three years, so I really...don't get this.

Whaaaaaat.

a, b, x, y: A Sucker Punch Fanmix

So here is my Sucker Punch fanmix. if anything else, you have to admit that the music in the movie was bomb. I, of course, think everything was bomb, so maybe I am the wrong person to discuss it with cause idk I just thought it was awesome and fun and entertaining! I have been planning this mix for ages, too, so I am happy it finally got finished!

11 tracks, a mix that generally covers the themes of the movie both lyrically, but also i wanted to pick songs that fit the feel~ of the movie.

always forget how strange it is just to be alive at all

My mother has always maintained that life is not happy. She says that life is hard, life is long, and life can be sad, but life is not happy. Life, she says, is a bunch of short bursts of happiness. It is not meant to be easy, but it is those short bursts we have to look for and enjoy.

For as long as I can remember, I have fought to disprove this. I lead a life in which I completely try to avoid change as much as possible. I have lived in the same house, gone to the same schools, and had the same friends my entire life. Nothing ever really changes.

The problem with my mother's philosophy, in my eyes, is that I want to believe happiness is found in other people. And I want to believe that we can be happy and have those same people in our lives for a long time. A longer time than it would to experience just a few short bursts of happiness together.

I hate change. I hate sadness. And I hate that things can't stay the way I want them to.
