Listening The Breaking of the Fellowship
Well, the Slytherin layout didnít last long, ne? *sweatdrop* See, thatís why I donít usually make black lays, I get tired of them very (very) easily. Oh, well. This one messes up the blog crews, and anywhere else where there are parenthesis, but thatís what you get when you put the scroll bar on the left I guess.
The Gravi lay (yes, another one, I *know*) is for celebrating that the first book itís going to be released next week in Spain, and I couldnít be more happy than to have Yami no Matsuei, Gohou Drug, Tokyo Babylon AND Gravitation all together, in Spanish, for my personal pleasure. Complains? Theyíre expensive, and Iím only a poor student. Poor poor Dashka. And my parents donít understand my sorta obsession with manga/anime, which they insist on calling it comics, much to my chagrin. "Oh, youíre reading those comics again?" "You spends WHAT in a comic? Wasnít it finished already?" so they wonít lend me any money.
Honestly, when he was young my father used to (and still does, when he thinks no ones looking) buy and devour spanish comics "El CapitŠn Trueno", a long series of stories about a bunch of men and a woman (whoís always getting into trouble, but I wonít comment on THAT) living adventures and such, spanish way. And his parents didnít tell him anything, because it was what he liked. And Iím sure my mother had another collecting thingy going on when she was my age, she just doesnít tell anyone.

So... I finished my exams. Passed statistics and maths II, which are good things since those were the worst, aka most-dificult-to-pass, subjects from all the course (along with Automatons and Formal Languages I, but I donít have that until next year thanks God) so now I can feel quiet and peace (and free time!) until summer. Which I plan NOT to spend studying for September, Iíve vowed that to myself. Letís see how it goes.
Iíve been updating flís and making lays for Bushounen Lair, and indulging myself some time away from it all, enjoying the I-have-nothing-to-do moments, when I can be curled up in the sofa doing virtually nothing (cause watching TV does not count) and donít feeling guilty for it. Iíve been reading. Lord of the rings all over again; my, reading them after watching the movies certainly gives you a different perspective, if only for having Elijah Woodís eyes in your mind every time you read Frodo. But Iíll comment on lotr another time, itís going to be a looooong post, lol.
Iíve also read 362 Belisle St, by Susie Moloney. Basically, itís about a house, duh, which is sold several times to different people who always end up selling it because estrange things happens in there. I said, great! Itís like watching a haunted house movie on the TV, only that you read it. And it was good for the first hundred of pages. But then it started to degenerate, and it was not longer about the mystery behind the apparitions in the house, of making the lector feel uneasy about them; it became a character portrait of whoever happened to be the current inhabitant of the house. A divorced woman, a fat kid who gets picked up at school, a alcoholic writer... and I say what?? What about the pale woman in the attic? Or the sounds of steps in the second floor? Hello? Is this a ghost story or what? The end was beyond disappointing, and I still donít know where that pale woman came from. So great writing skills, but zero plot development.
Now I have a LJ account (itís my luck that when I finally find someone who has a code and is wiling to send it to me, lj stops needing a code to create a new account. The world is against me or what?), but I havenít posted anything yet, so Iím not gonna give the address. I need to figure it out how to make lays and befriend and cut the posts, and post for that matter.

Listening My Immortal, Evanescence
I have done nothing profitable today, which of course means no real study done, which of course itís bad. But my head ached like a trunk has just passed over it and I couldnít concentrate on what I was doing and ... oh, well, I hate statistics. Any excuse is good as longs as I can avoid studying it. In my defence I can say that I finished reading and sending mails, updating pages and tagging people. Thatís something.
So todayís just a quiz and a rec, because one can never have too much H/D slash recs. The Goodness of Their Hearts' by Taratext is a wonderfully written post-Hogwarts novel-length ĖI donít know why itís on TheDarkArts when Schoogle would be more suitable- that explores the H/D relations from a different point of view. Draco Malfoy, who long ago defected from Voldemort's side, has set up a successful security agency. He's also just been handed the case of a certain Harry Potter, who is receiving death threats from a stalker but doesn't seem to be particularly concerned about them. The best? Itís seventeen chapters long AND already finished. Go read it.
This have made me stupidly happy.
Oh, and tonight was the Big Brother five final. Nuriaís banshee screams when she was announced winner are still echoing in my mind and I think I could have gone temporally deaf. Long life stupid TV shows.
And plugging Aya, Omi, Len

Listening Andurill, Lotr OST
Iím so terribly sorry for the lack of updates. I know I should have put one of those hiatus signs, but I didnít have the motivation even for that. Lots of things were happening at the same and I couldnít handle it all anymore. My computer broke beyond repair and I had to settle with using one of the lab, and those are so stupidly slow I had barely time to do the practises for my subjects, let alone update anything; then my mobile got jealous and went kapoo too, and I had to call home from a phone box every two days. My grandmother fell down the stairs and she had to go thought surgery. Sheís all right now, but she has to be careful when moving and with my granpa also ill, my mom had to go everyday to their house to make the meals and such, and I felt so helpless! I couldnít stay long with them because I had tons of work pending to be done here, and I couldnít postpone that.
So I didnít feel able to keep up updating the log, the Fls and those things. I didnít see the point anymore, and I needed a break from it all. Then Christmas came and we had a great time, I could see that they are much, much better. And an aunt of mine has installed with in their house, she looks over them so that my mom can rest a little too. Little by little, I started checking my mail (you have no idea just how much spam you can get! grr) and surfing here and there, d/ling past scantranslations I didnít have, playing ravenblack again (I just got the power of Surprise, lol).
Then, I found my path again. I was just looking for some information about the 5 book of Harry Potter when I came across HOL (Virtual Hogwarts), which is a Hogwarts-like online school, you get sorted and receive points for you house for the homework you send in of classes offered my other people who act like teachers. Once you get involve with it, you forget how it was without it. There Iím Mia Mayfair, a Slytherin First Year who wants to become a teacher next term, aspiring prefect, and class member of History of Alquemy and Charms and , among others. It maybe sound somewhat childish on the outside, but when you receive you HOL id, sing up for you first class and visit you common room, believe it doesnít matter how old you are. :)
So now Iím back for good, I hope. I have my mid-term exams in two weeks, so donít expect long intellectual posts for a while, ok? xDD
Aya, honey, Iím sorry I hadnít keep in touch with you for so long, but I hope you can forgive. Iíll try to be online from now on at evenings, and we can talk and discuss the changing servers you have motioned. God knows I need to move my ass and start updating the fls.
Marrek, Ranchi, Arwen, Len ... I missed you too girls. I hope you had a great Christmas and got lots of presents! Iíll try to read your bloggies this weekend. Len, if you still have that lj code, could you give it to me? I'd like to have one ^_^
Well, even if it is a little much late now... Happy New Year for all of you! Oh, and from now on Iíll plug to everyone who comments, either on the comment link or the tag, so... go comment!
Ah, itís good to be back.
