Altogether now:

outer senshi
The first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is out.

I teared up during the opening theme, I won't lie. If the Outer Senshi turn up at some point I'll turn into a blubbering mess.

I love the pastel shades and the cute clothes and the watercolour scenery and GAH, HOLD ME.

Fic: Almost Home

avengers: black widow sepia
Title: Almost Home
Author: sugar_fey
Remix Recipient: inkvoices
Pairing(s): Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
Rating: Teen
Warnings (or 'I choose not to warn'): non-explicit references to past childhood trauma
Author's Note: This is a remix of inkvoices ' wonderful fic, 'On Names.' It's a beautiful study of what names mean to Natasha. This gave me the idea for a study of what home means to Natasha and how her conception of home develops. Many thanks to enigma731 for thinky thoughts, to Shrike_Attack and alphaflyer for the beta, and of course to inkvoices for writing the original fic!
Fic I've Chosen To Remix (please include link): On Names

Summary: ‘Home’ is a word in a language not her own.  Natasha has never longed for home.

Would anyone be willing to beta my Clint/Natasha remix fic?

Supanova was a lot of fun. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get into the panels, which destroyed my "ask Stan Lee about a female-led Marvel film" plans, but my favourite part of Supanova has always been walking around the floor and having a look at everything.

The con was much bigger than last year, both in the number of stalls and the people attending. The crowds were MASSIVE. In fact, the crowds were so large that it was hard to get a good look at some of the stalls. I saw some great costumes. Fewer Avengers than last year, which I expected, but I didn't see as many X-Men as I expected considering that Days of Future Past came out recently. I did see about three Quicksilvers though. The fandoms that had the most cosplayers seemed to be Attack on Titan and Disney princesses. I saw a LOT of Frozen cosplays, which surprised me.

I gave into temptation and got this Black Widow statuette. I'll take some photos later. She's so pretty! She reminds me a lot of Phil Noto's Black Widow, but with more visible cleavage. Low zipper aside, I appreciate that this statuette is much less cheesecake-y than some Black Widow figurines I've seen.

I also got a chibi!Hawkeye bookmark from Artist's Alley. It's cute. I saw way more Sailor Moon merchandise than last year (which isn't surprising given that the reboot is not far away- so excited!), but unfortunately most of it was out of my price range.

First Cosplay?

Supanova is this weekend. It's Australia's biggest comic/sci fi/anime/geekery con. This is not saying much at all, given that we have maybe a handful of cons each year across the country, but still, yayness. This is my third year attending. I've always wanted to cosplay, but I've never had the time, skills or money to get a costume together, plus I'm still struggling with body image issues that make me baulk at wearing spandex. Also it's the middle of winter.

But then it hit me. I have a jacket. I have boots. I have eyeliner. I have long, dark hair.

Hastily cobbled together Sarah Manning cosplay here I come! Thanks, Orphan Black.

Hey guys, good news! If you click the question mark on the top right hand corner of the new LJ homepage, a dropdown menu emerges with the following wonderful words: "Switch to the old version."

Voila! Oh, old LJ layout, I didn't realise how much I appreciated you before...

I was going to make a LJ entry about how I'm nervous about starting work at the stables tomorrow (which I am), but I got distracted by UGLY NEW LIVEJOURNAL LAYOUT WHY.

Work News

I applied to work as a stable hand/floor manager/receptionist (yes, all of the above) at the local riding school. The pay isn't great (minimum wage), but it's a good temporary job while I look for something more well paid. I've been working with horses all my life, so it's something I know well. I have a trial run on Saturday and if that all goes well I'll probably start work next week. Yay, income!

Ugh sudden onset zombie death plague.

I brought it on myself, the weather is starting to get winter-y and yesterday I was sitting in front of an open window in a t-shirt and I didn't move even though I was shivering because I'm an idiot. I think my immune system went "dude, you're on your own."
