How's Everyone Holding Up?

1) Don't let the FUCKING GARBAGE fire let you down. We're gonna be okay! (I hope!) Fight! Fight! Remember, here's some songs to bolster you in your time of need! Read articles like this, which is the funniest thing I've seen all year, holy fuck. Strike or wear red in solidarity on March 8th! Also, get involved and call your senators and congresspeople (if you're American). 5calls.org is a super helpful site that tells you exactly who to call and what to say about all the different issues currently facing us. I'm doing my best to call or email every night! \o/

2) We're getting our first glimpses of the super-whitewashed Ghost in the Shell and Iron First, to which I have to say - [x]. Also, if you want extra fictional things to be angry about, the dickwad who wrote Captain America as a Nazi has apparently also written Magneto - Jewish Holocaust survivor Magneto - as a Nazi collaborator. Soooo. Yeah.

3) I know it's been about ten billion years since I actively engaged in Naruto fandom, but at the end of this month (if all goes well) I'm actually going to San Francisco to meet up in person for the first time ever with questofdreams, atanih88, audreytiphaine, and akalillyn as a group. (nilladriel and maybe aamyra were also supposed to be there, but due to an illness in the family, money, and Fuckface Von Clownstick, they can't come. ;_; I am so mad and sad.) We've known each other, Skyped, and IMed for about eight years now, but while a few of us have met up in pairs, we've never all converged together in the same spot. I am beyond excited. We've been planning this (and saving money, lol) for literally like the last two years. I hope everything goes as planned. Fingers crossed.

4) Me and paranye finished the first segement of our drunken Snape argument. It lasted six hours, included nine straight shots of rum or vodka each (???!!!), and ended with me literally face-down on the bed asleep as she rambled philosophically at my unconscious, unmoving body. So... I'll be editing that down? And then we'll be doing it again to wrap up. >.>;

4.5) We made a Friendship Test with x_dark_siren_x when we were in Scotland and I've kind of finally made it into an actual, doable quiz. >.>;

5) How's everyone doing? :)

6) FUCK TRUMP! \o/

Amaaaazing, oh gods!

I'm so so so happy for all of you, seriously.

Also, fight. Fight to the very end, and there will be NO bloody end, because you'll be okay and that murderous clown will be exorcised.

I'm sitting here, every day, hoping for the best.

*hugs tightly*

YOU WILL MAKE IT!

Fucking hells, I'd give _everything_ to meet you guys. Gah. I just... really really miss everyone, I think. It's so quiet here nowadays, as Tumblr isn't really great for my social skills.

Also, just got out of an extremely toxic and /bad/ friend-relationship, and here I've been spending 3 fucking years of my time, love, and strength for a person who turned out to be SATAN, if Satan wasn't an angel questioning things.

Ugh.

Anyhow!

Take pics, aaah. Take ALL the pics <3 <3 <3

(and stay safe, and kick the Orange fucktards in the face <3)

ARGH WHY ARE YOU SO FAR AWAY???

I miss the LJ community too - Tumblr doesn't encourage the same kind of group discussion and fandom. :(

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. O_O My God. But that's absolutely amazing for you that you left and can now move on to better things! Things that are better than Satan. :(

WE'LL TAKE SO MANY PICS!!!

*beaming*

SATAN WAS DEFEATED-

but now they are vagueblogging about me instead. *snorts* It's quite hurtful, but I've banned me from that shit, because I'm done with the poison, yesyes.

Also, gods.

I need to get my stuff published, get rich and drag my kiddo off to Japan so he can fall in love with that country just a little bit more. Heh. Also, ugh. Tumblr.

But, I hope you guys enjoy your trip so so so much <3 !

Justin Trudeau is not having any of Fuckface's shit. It's. Awesome.

I saw the trailer for GitS last night. I htg thought it was another MCU movie starring Scarlett :/ Just. NO. Someone wrote Cap as a Nazi! What the actual fuck?! I'm glad I never got into comics; I don't know enough about actual story lines to be totally enraged by movies getting things wrong.

Fangirl meet ups ftw \o/ But >:( that Fuckface's bullshit makes it difficult for some to travel.

I'm finally recovered (physically if not mentally) from the two month illness of last fall. The depression was exacerbated by the loss of our two youngest cats a few months apart; and the recent discovery that another has lung cancer. Lung cancer. In. A. Cat. /o\ I've been reading books about presidential history. It's been enlightening...and depressing. Things have been getting steadily more shitty since Nixon.

UM NO. The thought gives me nightmares. :D
Seriously though, I can't watch or listen to him talk without wanting to punch things...and the ignorant people who hang on and believe his every word. Have you ever noticed how his mouth looks like an asshole? It's unsettling.

Have fun on your fangirl travels!

I hope that from now on, all politicians follow his example. They definitely had legit strategy meetings about how to counter the Handshake, lmao. It's the funniest thing I've read since the election.

I'm so glad you're feeling better, omg. I'm around to talk if you ever need it! Also, pets dying is the literal worst. :( I've owned pets since I was a very small child, and it never gets any fucking easier. I'm so, so sorry. :(

Have you ever noticed how his mouth looks like an asshole?

THAT WAS NOT A THING I NEEDED IN MY LIFE THANK YOU *RUNS AWAY*

the Great Gathering sounds amazing!! I'm so happy for you all. :D

Thanks much for that 5calls site, I've been getting really bogged down mentally with all the shit going on because there's.....so much?? And it feels like an impossible tidal wave of horrific shit and I don't even know where to begin trying to help fight it anymore, so yeah. That should be helpful.

Other than the world ending tho I'm doing okay! I'm graduating soon, after I get back from a monthlong study abroad trip in London and Canterbury that I'm simultaneously nervous and out of my mind excited for. So that will be fun, I hope!

I'M SO EXCITED I HOPE EVERYTHING WORKS OUT. WE'LL POST PICTURES! :D

I totally understand. :( It's been a landslide of shit, and we all have to stay afloat, especially if we want to keep helping. *hugs*

OMG LONDON THAT SOUNDS SO EXCITING. What will you be doing there? :D

Yessss pictures! :D

So the class is on ~the literature and culture of London~ and each week's focus is a different century, our itinerary is SO PACKED but mostly I'm excited for seeing Anne Boleyn's childhood home (I will cry) and seeing David Tennant in Don Juan, which my school pulled some serious sorcery for! It's gonna be a wild ride that will hopefully inspire me to post more on LJ, haha!
