Be Careful, I'm Armed (with markers!) ^_^  
Ohio is a very, very confused state. *shakes head* It feels like autumn here-- and has for the past week. Record lows, evening highs in the fifties. Normally our Julys are sweltering, but our state gets mixed up easily. I think the other states laugh at it 'cause it's challenged. ^_^;;;

You know, I was actually going to type this entry yesterday on my hour lunch at work, because I knew I'd be too exhausted when I got home. But, when got to the computer room, someone had turned the AC up to the point where I expected to see small penguins doing drill routines in between the desks. It's cold in my department, but that was positively *frigid*. I promptly fled, for fear of frostbite. And, sure enough, I was completely exhausted when I got home-- I fell asleep on the couch. ^^; Eh.

But! (She exclaims, needlessly) Here I am, with general Rl and fandom comments, not to mention actual fanart. I know-- I'm shocked too. ^_~

First, fandom:

  • Eeee! I took my nieces to the midnight showing of HBP, and we had such a good time. There weren't a lot of people dressed up this time, but it was *packed*, and everyone was in a good mood. I thought the film itself was pretty good, aside from being the first one that couldn't really stand on its own. And, though there will never be enough Snape in any film for me, I *was* a little disappointed at his lack of screen time. Hello! Title character! *waves wildly* Less Ron and Lavander, more Half-Blood Prince, please!
    (But, as Amber and I have pointed out previously, bonus points for emo!Draco. On the train! In the bathroom! Convenient for *any* setting! *giggles*)
  • I also saw Transformers 2. I didn't think it was nearly as cute as the first. There were just too many jokes related to male organs. Though it is always deeply entertaining to see the next chapter in the saga of Megatron and Optimus' torrid, passionate and forbidden love affair. ^_~ (Or, come on, you know you see it too.) Also, Bumbleebee was as ever and made me want to pinch his little robot cheeks. And we heard Sam say, 'I love you, man' to Bee!
    (I actually 'ship Sam/bee. ... ... Well, I'm going to hell anyway. I suppose I shouldn't worry about going to the special one. ^_~)
  • TORCHWOOD SERIES THREE ON MONDAY WHOOOOOO!!!!. Alas, while I remain unspoiled, I am hearing vague rumblings from British fans that all may not end well. *frets* The promo images, however... Wow. Actual, pure and official Jack/Ianto. I don't want to hotlink, but search if you don't believe me. It's out there. ^_________^


I've actually decided to skip the RL news. It's not bad, just... eh, some other time.

Now the fanart! I have Transformers and The 4400. Thanks to Josh's stubborn demands to be included in my little work related comics, I've gotten more practice drawing men. (Some of this practice involves Leslie and I hitting him for being male, and thus difficult to draw. ^_^) I know the idea of holo!Bee isn't new, but I couldn't resist doing a little sketch of what I think Bee would look like disguised as a human, or as a hologram thereof. Here's A Boy Called Bee-- I did try my hand at his robot form, but I'm afraid it sucks mightily. *sigh* I erased my handwritten comments and typed them in, since my handwriting is attrocious.

Second, Amber recently rewatched The 4400 (thus subliminally prompting me to do the same ^_~), and reminded me of our Julian-verse. It's been a while since I've drawn them, but I did little concept sketches of Marco, Garrity, and Julian in hopes of maybe doing a short comic. I had a great time doing it! I hope you like, Amber-dear!

*bounces* Torchwood tomorrow!

I LOVE YOU.
I so need to write fic about these bad ass mothereffers. Eee.
I love the art so, so much. <3!

I like the Transformers art, too, of course, but I am like twirling about Garrity and the Pacellas.

EMO DRACO IS EMO. fyi. *giggles*
My mom and I had a whole conversation about Draco tonight. It was weird.

I LOVE YOU BACK! *twirls Amber around*

I so need to write fic about these bad ass mothereffers.
*grins* The transformers, or our boys and Julian? *wink* Seriously, if you want to write me a script for the comic, go ahead-- otherwise I'm gonna base it off our of the little scenes we dreamed up in our comment exchanges.

There's just something about transformers.... teenage human boy + giant alien robot = <3's OMG. ^_~

My mom and I had a whole conversation about Draco tonight. It was weird.
*nod, nod* Draco in that whole movie is weird. He's like a boy who knows his life is hurtling wildly out of control and, while terrified, is doing nothing at all to stop it. X_x;; Maybe he and Lex Luthor need a support group?

It will be a group for MISTREATED EMO BOYS WHO ARE VERY EMO.

I doubt I can come up with anything more awesome than what we invented that summer. :)

Mistreated emo boys!
Seriously, though, at one point in the final sequence Draco looked like he was ready to piss his pants and burst into tears. Which is understandable enough. He really looked like he'd have rather turned right back around and turned himself in rather than go with the mean man and the crazy woman who kept setting fires.

So... I've been rewatching the 4400 myself and have recently been re-reading many of my old favorite 4400 fanfics, of which your "We Were The More Deceived" was at the top of the list. Any plans to write more of it? Or at least post that second chapter that only needed two more paragraphs? *hopeful eyes* Figured it couldn't hurt to ask... ^_^
Meredith Bronwen Mallory: 4400garnettrees on July 22nd, 2009 05:24 am (UTC)
Wow-- I didn't think anyone remembered that fic! *blushes wildly* It never hurts to ask at all, especially since, in my rewatching, I did come up with a better ending for the story. Actually a little more hopeful, as I started writing it during the middle of the last season.
I'm getting in kind of a post-apocolyptic mood anyway. ^____^

*eyes her muse* I'll give it my best! Thank you so much for your kind comments!

*cheers* Yay! *_____* I will eagerly await anything you'd like to churn out. ^_^ Thanks for considering!
