No, really, I am.

*Snigger*

Made a new journal.  For real.

deb_downer 

Planning to use it only for any new fandoms I'm writing, including Avatar the Last Airbender and Naruto as well as any new Arashi fic I write, though I have the twilit-tempest one for that...

............

I'm sorry.

Honestly.

Am planning on trying to use this one for any new Harry Potter and KH stuff, so no need to friend it, but if you're interested, thought I ought to mention it.

Love.

Decided I like this journal again.

Time away (and a lot of it) might have been what I needed.

Feeling motivated.

Officially back from hiatus.

Keep it on the DL for now.

So I don't know what it is or anything but truth be told, I hate this effing journal.  A lot.  And I don't know why but I'm at a loss of how to fix my feelings of annoyance with it so...

Yeah.  I started a new one in hopes of having a clean slate will make me feel better about LJ cause I've always like LJ, ya know.

My username is twilit_tempest  if anyone wants to head over and be friends with me again or anything.

As for CloudxRiku and RonxDraco...I don't know if I'm on hiatus or if I quit but I'm just not really...excited, I gues...anymore...

It doesn't help that there have been...reasons...for my lack of interest.

I guess the nice way to say it is there are just some...things...I can't stand about the fandom.  And after...I don't know how many years now...I just don't want to deal with it anymore.  Plus I'm totally in Arashi right now and I've always preferred RPS (real people slash for those who don't know) to fictitious fandoms anyway so I guess it's not much of a surprise.

I guess because it's more fun when you can watch television performances and listen to music by your ships and so on.  Or maybe because you can get pictures without hoping someone will draw your characters much less hope that the someone in question has any talent.

Let's not lie.  There's plenty of godawful fanart out there, right?

::sigh::

I really don't mean to be so negative about this.  But that's just how I feel about the whole thing right now.  Like I said, not sure if this is a hiatus or I'm quitting.  Regardless, the only place I'll be posting from here on out is at my new journal.  You can also feel free to contact me via email or something, I guess...

Anyway, it's nothing against anyone on here just to clarify.  I'm just frustrated.  So please don't hesitate to come visit me at my new LJ.  Once again, my username is now twilit_tempest .  Hope to see you there.

Signing off.

Exhibit A:

So I go find free hosting and it sounds all good enough for this little beginner site I'm putting up, right?

It even has three emails.

But I keep having email issues. Like I keep going through everything I can find to set up Outlook Express and finally...finally...after three freaking days...I finally get it so that when I send a message to my spiffy new email address, it appears in my Outlook inbox. I'm stoked. But then I can't send email. No matter how many FAQs I reference or help I look at I can't send mail. So finally I send a message to tech help.

Guess what they tell me? Free hosting does not allow you to send email. You can receive email, but you can't send it. To send email I need to upgrade to paid hosting for $35 a year or buy an email package.

1. After I learned this little catch, I went to look at my plan details again. All it says is that you receive 3 mailboxes. Nothing about not being able to send. In fact, all the paid hosting say the same thing--mailboxes. There is nothing to indicate these mailboxes are different.

2. How pointless is the email box that receives but doesn't send? Honestly...

3. The smallest email package is for 100 freaking mailboxes for $12 a year. And yeah, $12 isn't a lot, but couldn't they offer me, like, 50 for $6? What the hell am I going to do with 100 freaking mailboxes? If I'm paying for them, they're getting used, yo.

Not to sound like Reno there, but I totally just did.

So I decided everyone who writes a column/writing guides as site staff gets their own email. And that's how its going to be.

And then I'm giving them out to my friends and family and then strangers on the street.

Or something like that.

100 freaking emails. Are you kidding me?

This site is going to be the death of me.

I've taken a moment to write this entry because it needs to be explained.

What went from a simple, "Hey, I'm gonna go and archive CloudxRiku stories onto one site" turned into "Hey, I want to recreate the epic fun that was the Joshtin days" to "I didn't go to college for this shit, ya know."

It's also become a LeonxSora site, too. Because one pairing just wasn't good enough.

Did I mention there would be forums? We're starting forums. Yeah...

That'll be fun, though. Personally, I love forums. They are super awesome. Cause their like IM-ing and chatrooms without the annoyance. And you can post all sorts of fun things. Like fanart.

Yay for fanart.

And people better appreciate this when its all done because I'm working hard. And like it. And be active because it will be fun if it kills me. And it just might for so many reasons.

Because the last sentence I said had the word fuck in it five fucking times.

Because I've been doing nothing but designing layout on lined notebook paper and brainstorming for the past three or four days.

Because when my tax return comes I owe $20 to my roommate for registering me a domain name for the next year.

Did I mention there would be forums?

And that I searched for over eight hours for free hosting that would not force ads on my site? It will be ad-free.

And did I mention I freaking registered a domain name? A freaking domain name just so I could look all professional and shit. I even get my own effing email.

And my poor roommate is spending most of her waking time drawing/making graphics for this freaking thing just so it doesn't look boring/like shit.

We had a fight over colors. I'm not kidding. Over colors. A fight over what colors things should be.

On the plus side we've dragged a third friend into this for more, fun ideas on features that should be available so the site can be more interactive. Cause we want people to come have fun even if CloudxRiku or LeonxSora are only pairings they kind of like.

Like the forums. Oh! And we're doing the fun featured writer/artist thingy. And we're going to have contests and make shiny banners for winners and stuff. And we're going to have columns/write articles about things regarding fandom/KH/shipping/etc and write fanfic/fanart guides. That will be fun. We're also going to invite other people to apply for their own columns, because that should be fun, too. I just hope people will want to do columns and guides.

Why shouldn't they? It's a chance to bitch about everything people do wrong. I bet there's a fight over who gets to write the bitch!guide about the importance of prewriting. Or staying in character. Or the "Why your male characters are not emotionally female" guide.

And if there isn't a fight I'll start one because I'm not doing all this for nothing.

On the happy side of things (besides all the fun stuff I get to do), I've gotten my grubby little hands on a very old copy of Dreamweaver, so I'm gonna go check that out now.

Why are ambitious projects my MO?

It was all the Joshtin days fault. Making me think fun communities are the only way to fandom. Like having fandom friends/contests/shiny banners/fandom activies are super exciting/important or something...

EDIT: Forgot to mention Friday is my birthday. Aren't I a lucky son of a...

I'm so happy!  My dear chopstixchi  just made me my first CloudxRiku art after I've bugged her about it for years and years and it's my community!!!

I could just pee myself with glee!

So go see, go see at lovexwinter, yes?

She is the bestest!

It was my idea, too.  But she did super awesome pulling it off.

Now I just got to get her to get on that community art.

As its been so long since I've really blogged and I am unable to focus on writing at this moment, I would like to take the time to write about the wonder that is Arashi. Because I've become a huge Arashi fan within the past few months.

I fell for the Jun bait. It's true. And it was all Gokusen's fault though it did get worse when I watched Hana Yori Dango. But now I'm an Ohno fan.

Leader. :)

Like hardcore. Like if I'm not being obsessed with Gackt (whom I desperately love now) I'm listening to/watching videos of Arashi and anything subbed I can get hold of. And I Ohno obsess. I like everyone in the group (Aiba!) but Ohno is just...

*dies a little*

Told you. Hardcore. In my list with Gackt and Cloud.

And everyone knows how bad I am about Cloud.

And speaking of Gackt...

Yeah. I like him now. Like on a Cloud level. And I don't know how it happened but I blame Hyde and the crappy movie that was Moon Child.

I seriously like Moon Child, though. Like seriously.

Oh, and Dirge of Cerberus. Which is by extent Cloud's fault. Because I seriously liked Gackt's music enough that I could listen to it but no means was I going to buy it or anything. And I seriously thought he was pretty fucked up looking. And now I love him on the hardcore Cloud level which has become the trifecta of Cloud-Ohno-Gackt level.

Effing Japan.

This is a stupid entry. I'm going to post it anyway.

Obviously, because you're reading it.

See how I threw that direct line in to anyone reading it? Heh. Yeah. I'm clever like that.

My head hurts. I whacked it on a wall trying to look in my closet door.

I should go write. I'm so bad at sticking to one task.
