Thoughts on my Twitter Hiatus

So it has been a little over a month since I cut myself off of twitter. Here is what I have learned:

1. I haven't been spoiled on a show in over a month. I made a brief trip over to twitter tonight just to see what was going on and to see if I felt any nostalgia only to have a huge fat spoiler thrown into my face. Then I remembered the number 1 reason for wanting to leave twitter and that was that half the shows I might have wanted to watch (Dr. Who and Once Upon a Time for instance) had been completely and utterly spoiled for me to the point that it was rather useless to even care about them anymore. Now that I have a Hulu Plus subscription, and I'm catching up on shows, I want to stay surprised and stay away from spoilers as much as possible.

2. I know a lot less about some of you... but at the same time I don't because the content I was getting wasn't really about YOU per say. I miss seeing updates from marissameyer about her book progress as those were always fun to fangirl over. I miss seeing most of your faces pop up across my feed and know you are well but in the end I realized that most of what is spoken about are things that I'm just not into. I like some YA books (I love all genres) but that is not my main interest and it isn't my life. I'm not a Harry Potter fan. I have no aspirations to be an author myself... and many times I felt a bit left out of conversations because besides the TV shows you guys love to chat about together (and spoil XDDD can I mention that a few more times?) that is about the only content that I see. I can't really relate to that and it feels foreign to try honestly.

3. I love all of you. I miss you a lot. It has taught me how little I share of myself though because I was limiting myself to 140 characters and that just isn't me. I think for now I'll be staying here on LJ and facebook and trying my best to share more and more about my life. I want to be me (and not force myself into a square peg of discussions) and to care about all my friends and support you all. So for now I will keep to places that let me ramble and don't limit me so much. Maybe when I'm cleverer and can fit what I feel into fewer characters I'll come back. :)

I need your help!

I am trying to decide what couple I'd like to do icons for. I am going to try to enter an icon challenge for the otp20in20 

I have 3 couples I could go with. Help me decide!

1. Ichigo and Rukia from Bleach. The difficult for this one would be that I wouldn't be able to use the same 5 pictures everyone seems to want to use for them. This will require a lot of editing on my part.

2. Emma and William from Emma. My source material for these would mostly consist of colored manga pages or the anime. The anime though has this fuzzy soft effect on the picture and would take a lot of cleaning up to make it not have that soft lens effect.

3. Sarasa and Shuri from Basara. I have two artbooks and all the manga covers. I have plenty of source material for this. It isn't as well known but it is my favorite manga.



4. Shirayuki and Zen from Akagami no Shirayukihime. I loooove this manga. This will most likely consist all of colored images done by my boyfriend specifically for this. He did the one below (so you see how nicely they would look)


So based on the images above... what do you think? It doesn't matter so much if you like the series or not. It is mostly based on what you think will make the best icons. ^_^ Pick your top 2 choices!

Annual SML spam...

I do this every three months... Most of the people on this list who are going to join sailormoonland already have.

But in case you have been thinking about it...

1. We have a new status for people who just want to hang out with SM fans but don't have time for the challenges. You can request to be a social member and just join us for chats and watch parties. :)

2. It is a great place for any fan of Sailor Moon to have fun. You don't have to have a deep knowledge of the show to participate.

Plus you know I'm awesome and I'm there. *strut*

Anyway come on over today and when you sign up please tell them Jojo from Chaos sent you!
