It's because it's hard to update with RL stuff when RL is Not Very Exciting. BUT I guess I've accumulated enough things to make a passable attempt at an update, so here we go!

FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, I have a job interview this coming Wednesday! I've been trying to get a full-time job in the library system for a while now and haven't even gotten called for an interview, but my boss called the people this time and put in a good word for me, which was cool of her. The job is at the Main library downtown, so driving to work every day would be...an adventure, but it doesn't really matter because 1) I REALLY need a full time job and it would probably take less time to get there than it does to get to my current job and 2) I really doubt I'll get the position anyway, so the point is moot. STILL, I CAN DREAM, AND YOU CAN BET I'LL DO MY BEST TO MAKE THEM WANT ME. Ahaha, that sounds so wrong, but then again so does the "DO YOUR BEST TO SELL YOURSELF" line interview guides tend to throw out. Anyway, unless I make an entry spazzing out about my new job, assume I didn't get it. :]

In other less important news, I went shopping at the mall with Mutti last week, something I've not done for...a very very long while, and which prompted me to wonder just how old I looked just then. I'm fairly certain everyone who saw me assumed I was a high school student. Does that make me a trap? |D Anyway, thanks to this trip to the mall, for the first time I own underwear that, should I ever be subjected to a strip-search in the middle of a busy airport, I would not die of mortification for having been seen in. I've never owned anything from Victoria's Secret before, but now I can see why it's so popular.

Also, I now have a very nice pair of pinstripe pants, a cute new button-down shirt to wear to work, and a loligoth-esque top that I got from Hot Topic. And the funny thing is, if my mum hadn't been with me, I wouldn't have bought the shirt from HT--she basically MADE me go back into the store and try it on when I told her I'd seen something I liked, and she doesn't even really like the fact that I like that style of clothing. Mixed signals much? Anyway, I'll take/post some pictures of those items if I feel like it sometime that's not 3 in the morning.

Oh, but my mum is hilarious. When I was playing TotA like a frickin' ZOMBIE a couple weeks ago, she managed to catch me at JUST the wrong moment, and I totally fangirled at her about my new fake boyfriend for probably about ten minutes. And she listened to the whole thing, and then just went, "...Hmmmmm...does this mean you'll stop being so obsessed with that girly-looking one?" (By which she meant Deidara, I'm sure.) And I assured her that oh yes, Guy was much more wonderful than Deidara in ALL ways and showed her the above picture. And she INSTANTLY brightened and went, "Oh, yes! He's handsome! 8DDD ......UH! But you *do* know he's pretend, right?" (*eyeroll* Yes, mother, I'm fully aware of that, which is why I called him my FAKE boyfriend. And kudos for trying to hide your own brief flicker of fangirlishness.)

...Oh, but it gets better...

She watched me play for a little bit, and I showed her the alternate costume I'd just gotten for Guy (the one you get for that VERY ANNOYING sidequest where you help Frings and Cecille pass notes in study hall), and said that I didn't really care for it because I liked Guy's original pants better. And she caught me, and was all "Oh, because they're tighter, right?"

Me: "...Y-yeah..." ^^;;

AND THEN SHE TOOK IT A STEP FARTHER, AND ACTUALLY SAID, "...Put those pants back on him--now turn him sideways, let's see--can you see the bulge?" AND SHE WAS ACTUALLY INTERESTED/CURIOUS/SEMI-EAGER TO SEE.

I SWEAR MY FACE WAS LIKE
O.O

LOL WTF, MUTTI.


So yeah, Tales of the Abyss > Naruto. For so many reasons that I won't go into here. BUT~ I wrote my first TotA drabble/fic today! It's SHORT genfic with some angst, and THERE ARE SPOILERS, but if you don't know the game at all, it probably won't make enough sense for you to really be spoiled. It also focuses on my two favourite characters, Guy and Anise. I'm the first person to post a fic on FF.net with those two as the main characters. I can't decide between being intensely proud of myself and succumbing to melodramatic tears of frustration. COME ON GUYS, THEY'RE HILARIOUS TOGETHER.

Guy + Anise. 'Proxime Accessit.'

...This was NOT what I was supposed to be working on today. -_-x


Title: Afterimage.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen.
Rating: T.
Pairing: None. Technically.
Characters Featured: Deidara. Sasori, after a fashion. Mentions of Sakura.
Summary: One-shot drabble. Deidara goes to pay his final respects to Sasori. Strange how it comes out sounding more like “I told you so.”

GUYS HEY GUYS, TRUE STORY.

To understand how funny this is, you have to know that my family is VERY right-wing conservative, which means among other things that swearing = OMG BAD. My mum (half-jokingly, but still) reprimands me for saying 'crap', so you get the idea of how uptight she is about this. Anyway, the other day we were watching that Adam Sandler movie The Longest Yard, which I'd borrowed from the library and which my mum had never seen, when suddenly the disc started skipping and then refused to play, which lead to this priceless event:

Me: "...Aw man, I guess it's too scratched..."

Mum: "No! Go find that...whatchamadick!"

Me, my dad, and my brother: o_O o_o O_O "......."

Mum: "...I mean, the CD cleaner...!"


...Yeah, we just about laughed her out of the room. :3


Nothing much to report otherwise. The library is INSANE lately what with all the early voting, and it's going to be that way until November 1st, so that's just wonderful. I have never been asked so many ridiculous questions or had to put up with so much inane bullshit in my life. To all you middle-aged men standing in line next to the desk: it was not funny when the first person like you chuckled and then made the tiresomely obvious comment that "Wow, this is a pretty long line, isn't it!", apparently expecting me to be impressed by your exceptional skills of observation and laugh at how clever you were to point it out to me, who has been sitting at the desk and watching people slowly filing past for the past five hours. It is not any more funny the 30th time.

[livejournal.com profile] laura_writes sent me the first two seasons of Veronica Mars, which I'd heard was good but had never seen, and after just the first two episodes, I'm already in love with it. I adore her hair. It makes me want to cut mine short again. Not...that I didn't want to do that already, heh.


ALSO, THERE IS FIC.

Title: Remnants.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon.
Genre: Gen, slight angst.
Rating: PG.
Pairing: Slight Kakashi/Rin implications, though technically none, since they're still 13/14 in this fic. So definitely no smut, or ANYTHING like that.
Summary: One-shot. Some introspective drabbling on Kakashi and Rin's relationship after Obito's death.

...I really need to make a post, and I've been meaning to write an entry about some stuff, but it's five in the morning and I have to be up at eight, so for now, all I can say is here, KakaSaku drabble. Enjoy~

...Finally managed to actually FINISH something for this couple. It's about effin' time. -_-x


Title: Embers.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon.
Rating: T
Word Count: 772
Pairing: DeiSaku STFU I KNOW IT'S CRACK, I CAN LIKE IT IF I WANT. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!

For [livejournal.com profile] stereotype_vamp. <3

There’s no doubt in his mind, and likely in her mind as well, that the thing he wants most is to blow them both sky high. Because they, together, are just that beautiful in his eyes.

Title: Close Enough.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Pairing: Kakashi/Sakura. Though technically not really, I suppose.
Rating: T, edging towards M, for an adult situation. i.e. probably not for you, David. XD;



I don't think I can properly express just how much I love writing things in one sitting. I would get SO much more written if I just did that all the time instead of allowing myself to put it away for later.

…And this drabble shows quite clearly just how much of a geek I am. Yay, science! XD

...Might be a bit disjointed. I have a headache.

What's Between Us )

I'm counting on you guys to let me know if I screwed up with this. XD Headache --> not as thorough of a proofread as I usually do.

Another drabble! ...Yays? I took a quite a bit of liberty with the prompt for this one.

...All I have to say is...CATFIGHT NO JUTSU AHHAHA!!!! XDDD

More SasuSaku angst.

Posted here because I'm particularly fond of it, even though Sasuke's a real jerk in this one. XD

The Taste of Wonder )

I'll probably post another one tonight. =D Oh, the tortures those of you on my f-list must endure... XDDD
