For security reasons and so that I can be more open (not too open), but more so.
As it is, this journal is now Friends Only.
For those who aren't aware, please comment in this LJ post so I can add you as a friend.
So for Halloween this year I decided to be casual Tomoe Hotaru from Sailor Moon -- but for some reason I just couldn't be just casual Hotaru, I also needed Saturn's glaive. I mean, otherwise I'd just be a girl wearing all black and that's not very interesting.
Behind the cut is what I eventually looked like and the process I went through to make Sailor Saturn's Glaive from pvc piping, cardboard, insulation foam, masking tape, gems, and spray paint.

I love how January of 2012 I posted that I was going to try and get back into livejournal.
And then proceed to not post anything for 2 years.
O O P S.
Sorry, it's mostly because I don't produce anything remotely relevant for Livejournal so I'm just a complete failure. I haunt a lot of my old communities for when I feel like procrastinating and reading fic but it's mostly that. This is however my last semester of my undergraduate degree so maybe I'll get into doing more online stuff after that.
It's a 50-50 chance though, looking at my track record.
Hope everyone who's still watching me (for whatever odd reason) is doing well, and hope the new year has been good to you.
I've decided to try and get back in the swing of LJ. My account has mostly always been a personal blog but I've found myself being less personal with the influx of friends I've gathered.
So unfortunately, I'm going to do a bit of cleaning out - mostly to weed out a lot of those who I've sort of interacted with only a handful of times and haven't spoken to for a considerable amount of time.
I apologize in advance if I take you off my friends-list.
At this time, I would just like to be more private with my personal life and only wish to share significant details with a few others that I know best.

title | the theory of totems [an inception essay]
author | kitoky
summary | my thoughts in response to an inquiry about my opinion on the wedding ring theory as cobb's real totem. my response turned into a gigantic, long essay that is gigantic and long and possibly boring and has many, many typos. Thank you, Tumblr, for this glorious Inception Day. originally posted at my tumblr.
( what is cobb's totem? what is the answer to the controversy of the film?Collapse )
I actually found this on Tumblr, and found that it was obnoxiously long, so I'm transferring it over here because at least here I can do a lj-cut so I don't annoy the shit out of my followers/friends/people who stalk me.

"... it's a nightmare," says my brother. But it's not a nightmare. It's just a really, really weird dream.
It starts off in a very typical teenage girl's bedroom and I'm with there with a friend --- who went unnamed, but let's call her Ann for the sake of this retelling --- and it's obviously Ann's bedroom. We're rifting through her closet/wardrobe for some reason and she's telling me about this curse that she has and why she doesn't have close friends. Apparently there's a monster attached to her that detaches itself and wreaks havoc whenever necessary. There's a trigger to it, but I don't remember it. The dream was rather detailed, it's just that I'm starting to forget the them. She tells me some frightening stuff about the beast, and instances where it detaches and destroys things, kills people. Oddly enough, I'm so totally running away screaming, but I remember feeling slightly intimidated. But this being my friend and all, I'm not gonna running from her.
We drift away from her closet and start talking on her bed. After a bit more details and more unease, I'm suddenly propelled to the opposite wall. (Think practically any supernatural horror film where the force is literally invisible.) Slumping down the wall and to the floor, I hear Ann's screaming and I'm like, "Dude, calm down." Until I see that she's being dragged up the wall by her ankles and I'm like, "Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit."
( And that's when I ran away.Collapse )
