Yay! Finally got these. They've apparently been up for a while but LJ neglected to send me notices. *eyeroll*

Started The Silver Gryphon tonight. I don't really know if I'm going to like it; I honestly don't care about Skan and Drake's kids. They had like no personalities in the last book. (this would be why Bloodkin STARTS with Gabriel and why One Path's kids have actual roles in the story from a young age.) Anyway. *resolves to keep open mind*

I'm going to upload some textures and my icons on Flight of the Navigator; not sure if I'll post tonight or tomorrow.

These were done for [livejournal.com profile] jlu_stillness. Couple of them placed, I just can't remember which and when.

Yay, me. Isn't this banner GORGEOUS?

In other news, some of you may have read my recent post about my planned New Year's Eve icon marathon. Gotta do something while the rest of the country is out getting smashed, right?

Several people have offered suggestions/requests in different fandoms including episodes, actors, specific images, movies, and *cough* [livejournal.com profile] aruna7's vids. I don't know what I'll be doing, but I have been working on a bunch of new coloring techniques this week in preparation. For any of you who don't know, I use a nifty little feature called scripting which means thatafter I've done one icon a certain way, I can basically make however many more I want in one or two mouse clicks, then just go back and tweak any of the files that need adjusting. Hence the reason I'd even consider taking a challenge like this. (Yes, [livejournal.com profile] teddibear, my dear, I know the marathon was my idea. The number of icons, however, was someone else's...)

Anyway, there is one thing I haven't been able to do, either on my own or with the help of tutorials: red icon coloring. I was hoping to replicate the effect of the Pounded Like This icons without the benefit of the overlay effect Aruna used on the vid itself. I didn't think this would be so difficult, given that it was my textures that were used in the overlay, but somehow everything I've tried has come out WAY too red or, like, pink. I've tried color balance, both on the base and through an adjustment layer, same with curves, and I've tried gradient/texture overlays. Any ideas or tutorial recommendations would be greatly appreciated on this one.

Apologies to those folks waiting to read SG-Claus. It's going to be way too long for [livejournal.com profile] sg_challenges, and since we don't have a current challenge over on [livejournal.com profile] scifi_five I've held off. Fear not, the presents will be delivered. It's NOT going to be another debacle like Trust. (Darn you, Cake Scene! *shakes fist*)

KC RPers may be interested in knowing that the trailer made by [livejournal.com profile] aruna7 for her Shattered Fates vid series has won its first award. *GRIN*

So, I've been avoiding LJ like the plague lately in hopes of finishing my Nano story. The good news is, I hit 50k last night. The bad news is, I hit 50k because one of my characters became an aspiring writer and started writing her OWN stories in the middle of my novel... so I hit 50k and still don't have anything approaching a completed plot. Lovely. Anyway, having hit the mark, I decided to take a break this morning. Checked LJ and look what I found! Guess it was my week. Now I need to post these, along with about 50 Viggo Mortensen icons I made while my net was being insane before the sun was up this morning. (Yep, sleepless as usual. Go me.) Oh, and like an assortment of icons I made last week while procrastinating...forgot those...heh.

For the two hours of sleep I did get, I had some weird dream that all of the typoteers were helping SG-1 on a mission, but it was so strange I don't know if I can explain it. The funny thing is, the typoteers all appeared as one of their RP characters' actors, but I looked like someone I've never seen.

Nerca was Myr, Jess was Kayla, Jase was Jasyn from Andromeda, James was Kael, I think. Jo was Gigi, and Sarah was Coria. Oh, and Fate was Atra, for some reason, not one of her RP chars, I forgot that.

We were trying to go back in time and save Sha're, I think. Why Sam was okay with this, I have no idea but she wasn't saying anything about messing up the timeline or anything. I also don't know what season it was, because Jack was leading the team, but it was Jack the way he looks now, not like Jack the way he did back in the early seasons. Anyway, Tanith was there, and we were chasing him around a mothership for a while, and then Jacob said we had to put the ship on "stealth mode". So all of us typoteers were like, "What? There's no such thing as stealth mode on a mothership!"

So, Jacob goes, "Watch," and he pulls down some big lever that appears out of nowhere, and suddenly we're not on a spaceship, we're on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean and Jack is like "the captain". So, the reason we need to put the ship on steath mode is that there are Goa'uld pirates chasing us on jet-skis. Well, all the sudden there's like this forcefield around the ship, and it rolls over, so it's like bottom-up in the water, but somehow we're all still in it, and it's moving, so we're staring a the ocean floor going, "OMG, it's a submarine! That's so cool!" and then I woke up.

Anyway, I'll be starting to catch up on my flist over the rest of this week and next. I apologize if I've missed anything big while I've been hiding in my writer-hole.
Icons to follow.

Oh, I'm probably going to icon a couple of Aruna's Zhaan vids today. My brain seems to love Zhaan despite my never having actually watched a single episode of Farscape. *facepalm*

More banners. Yay.

Must. post. icons. today! Another huge icon post building...but I also need to write challenge fic responses. Maybe the insomnia isn't all bad?

Ok, so why is it that when I'm on at like 5AM, no one else gets on until like 1PM, but the day I don't get online until after noon, not only is everyone on, but they post? *sigh*

Silvan's got me stumped this time...suggestions from any Knight Command RPers would be appreciated on what's going on in the training rooms thread, since it seems the longest duel in RP history is fated to continue for another week. *huge sigh* I could be really lazy and just let him get the hit, I suppose... *ponders* Or have Kenobi reprimand him because his goal is supposed to be getting him off the mat, not trying to cut him in half... *ponders more*

Tammy apparently hung out with Ralph this weekend and I missed it again. *Sigh* We used to have so much fun...he's probably starting to think I don't exist anymore; I haven't seen him in like two years.

Icons later; textures too if I'm not lazy. I've finished my claim for [livejournal.com profile] iconic_ships but now I don't like about a third of them. I may have to make more...

Oh. A very pretty banner from [livejournal.com profile] swsaga100

[identity profile] so-out-of-ideas.livejournal.com
Well, I suppose nine rounds is pretty good. The funny thing is, several of these icons annoy me now, but the one I like is the one that got voted off.


Not much else to say, really. Although I did make a new claim on [livejournal.com profile] stargate_abcs Oh, and entered [livejournal.com profile] obiwanstillness this week. We'll see how that goes.
