I fall in love with fictional characters and have at least a minor interest in anything that could be considered nerdy.

Love Letters to Literary Crushes

Sorry for two posts in one day! But I just found about about this: Love Letters to Literary Crushes Blogfest.
From Frankie's blog:
"Before you head out to see Eclipse, why not let your underappreciated literary crush know how much you love them. Tell them why they are so cute, adorable, sexy, caring, funny, and awesome that you wish they were real and not just living in some author's head. And even if they're not starring in a major movie at the end of this month, we still think they're all that and a bag of chips."
I just had to participate. You should too. Be sure to check out everyone elses letters!

I could not decide on just one character, so I picked a few. LOL.


Dear Severus Snape,

I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone when I was around seven or eight years old. I hated you back then, because you were the bad guy, and you aren't supposed to like the bad guy. Boy did I change my mind about that!
The books describe you as greasy and big-nosed, but I kinda have a thing for big noses, and well, as for the grease, I can deal with that. You're honestly one of the deepest, best-written, amazing characters I've ever read. You're not 'cute' or 'sweet' (except around Lily), but you're brave and in my mind at least, really hot.You're the only reason I bother to watch those god-awful movies anymore (don't worry, dear. It's not your fault they completely ignored you in Half-Blood Prince. But I won't go into that, because I can rant about the movies for hours and I don't want to subject you to that trauma. :]. [hey, maybe I'll post a blog about that rant one day.]). Being played by Alan Rickman helps a lot. Cause. Like. He/you is/are amazing.
Um. Anyway. Sometimes I just go through the books and just read all the scenes about you. Cause they're the best. I can't count how many times I re-read The Prince's Tale chapter in Deathly Hallows (in fact, that book is a bit too intense for me to re-read as much as I do the other books.) I cried for about a day and a half after reading that chapter for the first time. I want to bitchslap James for being such a...well, bitch. You deserve Lily way more than he ever did but that's okay because now I have you all to myself. If they screw up that scene in the next movie...BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN. Yes. Bad things.
I think if J.K. Rowling wrote a book all about you, I would die from sheer JOY. After I finish reading it, of course.
Harry Potter helped make me who I am today, and seeing as you've been my favorite character for a while, you made me who I am today. So. Thanks.
Love love love love lust love love,

Dear Roiben,

You swept me off my feet from the very first scene, just like you did Kaye. I could imagine you perfectly, and you were gorgeous even with an arrow sticking out of your chest. Who doesn't love a faerie with silver hair? In a lot of scenes, you're creepy as hell, but there's just as many or more scenes where you're absolutely adorable and sweet and sexy and I had to pause reading every few minutes to squeal like a retarded fangirl (oh wait, I am a retarded fangirl) before I could continue reading. Did I mention that Holly Black writes kissing scenes really well? Hot damn.
Ahem. Anyway. I really want them to make a movie of Tithe, but there's no way they could make you look as perfect as you do in my mind. So that would be sad. But I would love it anyway.



Dear Raistlin,

You're horrible, sick, twisted, occasionally disturbing, and goddamnit, you're one of my longest-lasting literary crushes. I hate Dragonlance. I hate nearly everything about it with a passion. But I can't stop reading them because YOU ARE SO DAMN AWESOME. So I kinda hate you for that. And I can't even get into all the reason's I love you so much because anyone who reads this would have me put into an asylum (slight exaggeration.) So we'll just leave it at this: WHAT THE HELL DUDE, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE. I mean, I'm pretty sure you come back to life later, but I am NOT digging through all the new books just to find out because reading about Caramon and Tanis is more torture than it's worth.. And why the hell is there no fanfiction about you where you're not paired with Dalamar? I mean, what the hell. Though I guess there's even more fanfiction pairing you with Crysania. Which is even worse. *gags*


Wow. I don't think I can get more nerdy than I am. And I know I have more than 3 crushes. I just can't think of them right now. Yeah. Oh, and I'm feeling a lot less angsty now than I was earlier. Maybe this helped. :].


Might as well go with the angsty blog first. My feelings at the moment can sorta be summed up by this song:

Manage me, I'm a mess
Turn a page, I'm a book
Half unread
I wanna be laughed at
Laughed with, just because

I wanna feel weightless
And that should be enough
But I'm stuck in this fucking rut
Waiting on a second hand pick me up
And I'm over, getting older
If I could just find the time
Then I would never let another day go by
I'm over, getting old

                       -- 'Weightless', All Time Low

Seventeen is a really awkward age. I don't like it. I still think of myself as 15 most of the time, which is weird, because I've always been pretty mature for my age, I think. But I feel stuck between being a kid and an adult, and I really just want to go backwards. Up till now I've been excited about being an adult and moving out someday and stuff, but now I'm really scared. I feel like time is speeding up and my teenage years are going to be over before I get a chance to do anything more with them. I haven't had time for anything since I got back from England. And I'm glad I got to go to England, but I hate that I was thrust right into my babysitting job as soon as I got home. I still don't feel like I've settled back down at all because the summer has been so busy so far. I haven't written or drawn a thing for months and I don't know how to get back into it.

I'm also really scared that when summer is over, my boyfriend will go off to college [obviously I want him to go to college, but I'm feeling selfish right now.] and I'll never get to see him again.

Being depressed scares the shit out of me, especially because I've been generally happy for the last six months. I don't know what to do about it. :(

Another [not-so-important] issue I'm having right now is that I don't know what I want to write for NaNoWriMo. Which sounds ridiculous, as it's still 5 months away [practically next week, right?], but it matters because it affects what I want to write now. I had been planning on writing this one story [inspired by the song Inside the Fire by DISTURBED], but I suddenly got the idea to rewrite an old story that I never was able to finish. I was always planning on re-writing it anyway, but I got the idea to do it for NaNoWriMo. So I can't decide which one to do, which means I can't decide which one to write now, which means I can't write, which is what I want to be doing. So that's a problem.

And my laptop died. Again.
And my iPod won't update.
So I'm pretty pissed off and sad.

I'm sorry for all my complaining. I sound really pathetic. Which I am.


Happy blog:

So I got all 4 seasons of Doctor Who on DVD. This is an amazing thing. I spent all of last week watching it [and got my two best friends totally hooked on it, and now we can't seem to talk about anything but Doctor Who] and got through season 1 and up to the Rise of the Cybermen episode of season 2. I'm on the last disk of season 2 now, which means shit is about to go DOWN. I've already seen the last couple of episodes, so I know what happens, and I was crying for hours after watching it the first time around, because I'm that pathetic. But yeah, anyway, it is saddening. Rose is incredibly whiny, and you can predict when she's about to do something retarded in every episode, but damnit, SHE IS AWESOME D: At least I have fanfiction, I guess...

Speaking of Doctor Who fanfiction, I got an idea for a fanfic after the scene in Fear Her where the Doctor says "I was a dad once." I was like, WHOA WAIT WHAT and then they never mentioned it again. So my idea was to write something involving his kid. Except I bet a bazillion of people have already done that, plus I don't know if he ever actually had a kid in the old series, seeing as I haven't watched it - if I did write it, it would be AU [alternate-universe] from the old series just so I wouldn't make some big mistake like that. So I don't know. Thoughts, opinions? I'm no good at fanfiction anyway, so who knows if it would happen.

It's kinda funny. I like Matt Smith [the new Doctor] a lot, even if he does look incredibly awkward, but when I first started watching Doctor Who, David Tennant was always my favorite Doctor. And then I watched season 1. And OHMYGOD I LOVE CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON. He was frackin' amazing. And I miss him. So I can't decide between him and David Tennant now. ANGST.

Um, yeah, I'm obsessing over Doctor Who because it is what's keeping me happy at the moment. XD

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

In which Brigid finds a lot of memes and decides to put them all in one post.

Yes, I am obsessive.
Stole this from Kerry :)

What's your name? Brigid

What do people call you? My family and some of my oldest friends call me Bri. It's usually just Brigid.

Were you named after anything? A Celtic goddess of fire and creativity/inspiration, I think.

If you were born the opposite sex what would your name be? I guess it would be Rowan, since that's my twin brother's name. LOL

If you could change your name what would you change it to? I don't think I would

Single? Nope

Who are you with/who do you want to be with? Right at this moment, I'm okay with being alone, but I wish my boyfriend was around more often.

Are you in love? I'm not really sure how to tell. But I think so maybe.

Have you ever been in love, if so how many times? Once before this, for sure.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Nope, I believe in lust and infatuation which can develop into love <--- What Kerry said.

Is it possible to be faithful to one person forever? Of course.

Do you want to get married? If I find someone who I know I can be with forever.

Do you want to have kids? I think so. A long time from now.

How many? One.

What sex? I'd prefer a girl

Names? I really love the name Elena. or Gaia.

Do you believe in divorce? I don't know what to think about it.

Do you believe in true love? Absolutely

Do you consider love a mistake? I don't know what you mean by that? I guess there are people out there that are a mistake to fall in love with, but I don't think love in general is ever a bad thing.

Turn ons? Really great smile. The kind that makes you melt. :)

Turn offs? Immaturity and chest/back hair. XD

What is the best thing about the opposite sex? Lots of things.

What is the worst thing about the opposite sex? Most of them never grow up and stop acting like immature 12 year olds.

Are you a virgin? Yes

Do you believe you should be in love to have sex? Yes, I do. But whatever people choose to do is up to them.

Do you smoke? No

Have you tried it? No, and don't plan on it.

Do you drink alcohol? Yeah, but not too often.

Have you tried it? Um, yeah?

Do you pray? No

Go to church? No. Just being in a church makes me really uncomfortable, like everyone there can see that I'm not one of them and don't belong there. LOL

Believe in God? Not really. And even though I'm pagan I wouldn't say I believe in a particular goddess, either.

Sleep with stuffed animals? No lol.

Take walks in the rain? When I'm in the mood

Dance in the rain? Occasionally

Do any sports? Nah

Lie a lot? I try my best not to

Steal? Never

Gamble? Sometimes mom and I play blackjack and bet M&Ms. XD

Have you ever kissed a stranger? Well. Er. I guess he wasn't really a stranger, technically. I don't want to talk about that.

Screamed so much you lost your voice? Well, I did get laryngitis once, and it probably wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't been at a party at the time and yelling at the top of my lungs anyway. XD

Laughed so much it was painful? All the time

Cried so much it was painful? Yes

Gone skinny dipping? Yeah, years ago

Had a medical emergency? Nope

Run away from home? No

Done something extremely unexpected? Probably?

Slept outside? Several times

Been onstage? Nope

What's your biggest fear? I don't really know what my biggest fear is... being scared, I guess. LOL. And people touching my feet freaks me out. And I have this weird fear that nobody actually likes me and is just pretending to. Not sure why.

What was your weirdest dream? I have so many weird dreams that I can't even keep track of them.

Scariest dream? The scariest one I remember (I don't have scary dreams often) was something involving me being pregnant, and all these little kids popping up and turning into demon kids and trying to tear open my belly with their teeth. It was fucked up.

Do you have a recurring dream? I sometimes have dreams that FEEL like reoccurring dreams, like I know exactly what is going to happen. Deja vu, I guess? I dunno. But the only dream that I remember that I know for SURE was reoccurring was one from when I was around 4 or 5. I was in this daycare (which I think was the daycare I stayed in for a day or two while my dad was in the hospital), but for some reason the daycare was/was on the Death Star, and then the Rebel Alliance blew up the Death Star. I don't remember it ever being a scary dream, though, which is interesting.

What was your best dream? Hmm. Don't know. I love all the dreams I remember, usually.

What is your dream? I want to write books and not be scared of people reading them. And I want to not get any older than 18, but that's obviously not happening.

Do you live in the moment? I live in my head.

What's your greatest strength? I think I'm pretty accepting of most peoples thoughts and feelings and opinions. I'm very liberal.

What's your greatest weakness? My physical strength is pathetic. I really need to exercise.

Do you have a motto you live by? "Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with stick like models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."- Gerard Way

I try to live by it, anyway. I don't always succeed.

Also: "If for one minute you think you're better than a sixteen-year-old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.” - Gerard Way. He inspires me a lot.

If your life were a movie what would it be called? I suck at titles! And no one would make a movie about me.

Do you have any bad habits? Laziness.

Do you have any secrets? Doesn't everyone?

Are you fake? Sometimes I think I'm not as honest with my real life friends as I am with my internet friends, because I'm not scared of my internet friends judging me. But I try to just be me...

What do you want to do in life? Write books and be successful at that.

Are you a daredevil? Ohhh no.

Are you predictable? I don't know?

Do you keep a journal/diary? I fail at it, but yeah.

If you could change one thing about you would you? Yeah. At the moment I feel like I would probably make myself younger. Or prettier. Or better at artistic things. I don't really know.

If you were somebody else would you be friends with yourself? I don't know.

Do you think you're a good person? Without sounding arrogant, yes.

Do you think you're emotionally strong? Not at all.

Do you regret anything? A bit, yeah.

Do you think your life has been good so far? In general, yes it has.

What do you like most about your body? At the moment I really hate all of it.

What do you like least about your body? My legs and my face and everything really..

Are you trust worthy? Yes

Are you gullible? A bit, yeah.

2. Tag 8 other characters.
3. Post their names with the creators avatars.
4. No tag backs :I

1) He is my muse, and thinks he can worm his way into every story or RPG I write. And thinks it's okay for him to have a different girlfriend in each one. XD

2) He was originally pretty much a mix of Drizzt and Jarlaxle (from R.A. Salvatore's The Legend of Drizzt series) because I was/still kinda am a fangirl. He's changed a lot since then, though (gosh, that was years ago. He was one of my first RPG characters. so I was like, twelve. Oh my.)

3) No matter how full-of-himself and confidant he acts, he really hates himself for a lot of the thing's he's done in the past.

4) He can control dreams.

5) He'll do anything to protect Tara -- anything.

6) He's about the closest thing there is to a scientist in his world. His favorite thing to do besides making out with Tara is studying magic and experimenting with it.

7) He wasn't originally supposed to get together with Tara in the very first version of his story, but then, he wasn't a major character back then either. The first character I paired him with was Whisper (called Nightsong back then.) Thank god I changed my mind on that, seeing as she hates his guts.

8) I really hate his name. I originally just took the name Damien and added some extra letters. But of course, it stuck, and now I can't change it. Sigh.

9) The villain of this story was his best friend for most of his life.

I tag:
YOU. :]

I like to take pictures.

In other news... I HAVE A LAPTOP! It's an old one that my aunt gave me cause it was broken. Mom's computer fixer guy wiped the harddrived and reinstalled Windows XP. It works now. I have a laptop an it only costs $45. FUCK YES. This will be so awesome for NaNoWriMo!

Neil Gaiman, the most amazing writer in the world, is writing a Doctor
Who episode! It will be the best episode ever. And Gaiman is a Doctor
Who fanboy, too. LOL.

He's also writing another Sandman book. Sandman (
) is the best series of graphic novels ever written. This is a fact.
Like, the end of Season of Mists made me cry, it was so good. I AM
Preludes & Nocturnes, The Dolls House, and Dream Country, which are
some other books in the series. I might be able to buy them. Which is
great, because they're pretty old and very rare. SQUEE.

This is all happening in the fall, by the way. Sounds like lots of
stuff is happening in the fall, or sometime around then. DISTURBED is
coming out with a new album in August, and Evanescense is working on a
new album (don't know when it's coming out), and so is My Chemical
Romance. Although, they said it was going tone released LAST fall, so
god knows what's going on with them. They must have enough songs for
three albums by now. Plus the MCRmy site just vanished, which is
EXTREMELY nervewracking. I know the old site was a bit obsolete, but
still...I loved it.

Anyway. Didn't mean to start rambling. Go here:

She is awesomefull. Especially if you like the movie Labyrinth (yay
for glittery!David Bowie and puppet!goblins) or Phantom of the Opera
or most really good fandoms, really. :) Also check out her
page, cause she's a brilliant writer as well as a brilliant artist.
I'm jealous.

Hello, three followers! Thank you for being interested in my rambling!

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

I was killin' before killin' was cool

First of all: Photos from my trip to England! Not all of them are up yet, because Facebook is being a bitch right now. So. There will be more up soon.

Second of all: Alice in Wonderland. Love/hate? I think it would have been better if not for the 3D aspect. It needed to be longer and the ending was stupid. And I didn't like how they gave all the Wonderland characters real names for some reason. XD But the Mad Hatter was epic, so that's okay. First time I've been excited about Johnny Depp in a while. I wonder if the DVD will have deleted scenes. :D

Third of all: LOLWUT?

Fourth of all: AUGH. I have to babysit. All. Week. Long. Actually, ALL. SUMMER. LONG. And I just got finished with babysitting for a month, because that was the whole reason I got to go to England in the first place XD. THIS IS NOT MAKING ME HAPPY. RAHH.
I don't know when I'm gonna find the time to write or draw D:

...buuut I am getting paid moniez. which I can use to buy concert tickets and doctor who DVDs. sooo I guess it's okay in the long run.

Fifth of all: I really love Alan Rickman. Oh so much. :].
Yay for pointless posts!

Sunday, June 6, 2010

Salutations, greetings, hola, pleased to meet you, hey there, hi.

Awkward first post is awkward. :]

I am Brigid, and I am awesome. Don't you forget it.
...naw, that's a lie.

I had a blog over at Wordpress, but I randomly decided I hate that site. Plus all the blogs I follow are on this site anyway. And I feel like I can take this blog less seriously and actually post shit. So. HI THERE. Hopefully I can keep this up. XD

So. Um. About me.
I like:
Writing stories
Drawing pictures
Good music (iTunes labels everything I listen to as Alternative, whatever that means.)
Good food
Good people
Pretty boys
and rainbows.

I dislike:
Homophobic/racist/creepy/mean people ("Intolerant people should be taken out into the street and shot!")
Indiana weather
Miley Cyrus
3D movies
...that's about it. I'm easily pleased.

UM. I don't know what else to say about myselllfff. OH WAIT.
 Just got this yesterday. AND IT IS EXCITING. See, for National Novel Writing Month (write a 50,000 word novel in one month) the prize, if you can call it that, is a free 'proof copy' of your novel. I have won twice, so I just stuck both books into one. It's hugenormous. XD

 Holding a real copy of my own book, seeing it in print = best feeling evarr.


(Book #1 is a really weird paranormal romance sort of thing. Book #2 is epic fantasy. LULZ.)
Soo. Do NaNoWriMo. It's insane (you have to be insane to even try it) but it's SO WORTH IT. I dunnoes if I would have ever gotten those two stories written without it (actually, I KNOW I wouldn't have written the second one.)

Aand now I REALLY don't know what else to say. So I guess I'll stop here. One more thing, though: Go read Audrey's blog instead of this one. She is epic and awesome and she makes me smile. :]
