Another new AMV! ^^ This one's a crazy comedy using footage from Azumanga Daioh. It's my best video yet, and it got me my first wins in an AMV contest at a convention! Look for it on the AMVs page. :)

After four years, I've finally finished remaking my first AMV, "Avada Kedavra." Some scenes have been removed and others have been added, and all the footage is now from a high-quality subs-free DVD source. A new link to download the video has been added to the AMVs page. Enjoy.

I've finished a new AMV featuring Vash the Stampede from Trigun. It's short, fast, and funny (I hope!). You can find it on the AMVs page. Also, at long last I've almost finished remaking my very first AMV, "Avada Kedavra," the sad death scenes video! Look for that one to be added before the end of the month!

I started to work on "Schism" tonight...but then I lazed out and decided to mess with my LJ instead. I've updated my whole LJ to use the layout of my old weblog page on Instead of the split thing I was doing, where the main page was on and had an iframe that displayed my LJ in the middle, the whole thing is now one page using div layers and it's all on LiveJournal. It's kind of obnoxious to navigate, but since most of you read it through your friends pages anyway it shouldn't make any difference to you. I'll get used to it soon enough, and it looks much nicer and works much smoother.

Had to ditch the shoutbox, though, which is a pity. :\

Yaaaay, my LJ isn't boring and plain anymore!

Oh, I also filled up my userinfo with actual information about me, finally, and re-uploaded this Chibiusa/ChibiChibi icon to escape the mistake icon once and for all. Much better all around.

Oh, and so far, my eyes are pain-free! Whee!

After a long hiatus, I'm finally writing fanfiction again! The Writing section of this site has been brought up to date with the addition of my three newest fanfics. A further two new stories will be added later this month. I hope you enjoy them.

Well, it's my birthday, which means it's also the first anniversary of DSP has now been its own domain for a full year. For this occasion, I thought a layout change was in order. The base image is one of my drawings of Sailor Infinity, the original Sailor Senshi I created back in 1996 that really got me rolling in the fandom and paved the way for what DSP is today.
dejana: (Pluto - Lonely)
I've completed a new AMV, which can be found on the "AMVs" page. It's a sentimental music video focusing on the breakup between Usagi and Mamoru that takes place in the Sailormoon R season.
dejana: (Makoto - Kind of Person)
Okay, now that I've got my head back on straight after last night's insanity...a real update. I overslept and was late for work today. But it was still worth it. ;D

I finally finished my new AMV, the Sailormoon R-breakup video, and I'm very happy with how it turned out. It could still use some tweaking but there comes a point where you just have to say, "ENOUGH! I'm sick of working on this!" And I am.

Anyway, it'll be properly linked to my website AMV page and probably tonight or tomorrow. In the meantime, there's a thread about it on ASMR if you just can't wait.

Now that I've finished my new one-shot I'm not sure what to do next. I don't have any new inspirations and I don't feel like working on any of my in-process fics.

And ASMR has just reminded me that NaNoWriMo is just around the corner. Decisions, decisions...

Aaaaand it's done! Still a few quirks to work out, but I've replaced my WordPress blog with a LiveJournal. My LJ is now best viewed on my website at this link.

Does anyone know if it's possible to customize the standard LJ links (friends, info, etc)? My new blog page is using iframes and if you click on some of the links you end up with strange pages trapped inside the frame. -_-

Yay for LJ! ^^

Caving In?

You know, I'm starting to wonder if it might be better to get a paid LiveJournal account and set it up to be embedded into my website instead of using my WordPress blog.

Another day, another long day shift.

The title of this entry is a rather large lie, since as an IT worker I know full well how often inexplicable things can happen, but it’s the song in my head at the moment. ^^;;

Today I should be working on AAO11 but I’m being lazy and neglectful, as usual, and writing manga summaries for the Votary instead. Bad bad me. I’m hoping to finish up this other one-shot I’ve been working on sometime this week, so it can be posted by the time my name comes up in Yumeko’s “Ask the Author” thread on ASMR. My writing history is pathetically short compared to that of most of the authors participating in that thread. x_x Must…write…more…fics!

Yet, here’s AAO sitting here begging to be written and I’m ignoring it. I need to get my rear in gear and finish this thing before Chaos-sama’s new story comes out, which is also Silver Millenium based. If there’s anyone in the world I don’t want to be competing with for readers, it’s him! ^^;; I got to read a teaser for his story today, which was fun. It helps to befriend favorite writers. xD

Beyond that, there isn’t really much going on since yesterday since all I’ve done is work and sleep and surf ASMR. So many things I could be doing…and I’m ignoring them all…

On the positive side, I think I might know how to fix that pesky space that keeps coming up between the pieces of this layout in the upper left corner. I just have to find enough spare time at home to try it out.

With Aphrael's permission, I've created a website to house the contents of the fanfiction "Highlights" threads she writes for ASMR. As a companion site to the Gold Collection, the Silver Anthology is a listing of the best Sailormoon fanfiction currently being posted on ASMR, and will be periodically updated as long as Aph keeps writing threads.

Happy New Year! I’ve finally reformatted my most popular fanfiction, “Against All Odds,” and added it to the Writing page. It is incomplete, but there are nine chapters available to read right now. From now on, new chapters will be added to this site on the same day I upload them to the various fanfiction archives I belong to.
dejana: (Pluto - Lonely)
I’ve added my newest fanfiction, just completed two days ago, “Misconception.” It is linked to the Writing page. I also uploaded some fanart I made in response to a new fanfiction by a favorite author, which is on the Artwork page, and added a Links page.
dejana: (Pluto - Lonely)
After two years of other hobbies I’ve returned to making AMVs. I’ve just completed my newest one, an Escaflowne video set to “Angel” by Aerosmith. You can find the video available for download on the AMV page.

Hellooooo, it’s a long-overdue blog entry! It’s been cold lately and I’m losing my summer tan. Boo.

In actual interesting news, at least as far as is concerned, I’ve been doing more work on the upcoming subsite “Tears of Pearls” over the past few days. This site involves a lot, and I mean a LOT, of manga scans so it could be a while before anyone gets to see it - except for whatever online friends I happen to be chatting with while working on it, that is. ^.~

Of course, I’m going to be distracted from the site for a while because I FINALLY found my video capture card! AT LAST! I no longer have to bravely resist the growing compulsion to make new AMVs! And now, unlike my previous period of AMV madness, I have DVDs to capture beautiful clean footage from! Thank you, 40%-off sales at! I’ve already started my first new AMV after this long hiatus. If you look at the title of this entry you might be able to guess the theme.

In other news, I’ve decided, for absolute certain, that I’m going to Otakon 2005 next summer. Definately. No going back. This will be my first time at an anime convention. I AM SO EXCITED it’s not even funny, especially because it’s TEN MONTHS AWAY. Argh. I’ve been watching the Otakon site like a hawk, since it sounds like they will be announcing the con dates soon and hotels filled up really fast last year. I want to make sure I get a good room.

On a side note, I was hoping to go to the local Sandman convention happening in my area next month, “Fiddler’s Green.” Neil Gaiman is going to be there. Yes, the man himself. *_* But, I don’t want to go alone, my dad might not be able to get the days off work, and I don’t know anyone else in my area who’s a Sandman fan. The only two people I know personally who would die to go are in England and Arizona. Boo.

Can’t have it all, I guess.

Website To-Do List:
-Get rid of scrollbars in blank frames on “Gold Collection” site
-Credit Gainax for FLCL avatars
-Add artwork and layout credits to “About” page
-Tweak the Guestbook code to better fit layout
-Make a better site link button, ‘cuz, ugh.
-Make link buttons for subsites
dejana: (Pluto - Lonely)
Site News: I fixed the problems with the weblog layout, so this page should be all finished now. I also made a layout for the guestbook and got it working; there’s a link button on the main page. The guestbook needs some tweaking to make it look the way I want, but that can wait until later. With the guestbook finished, the basic mechanics of the site are complete. Now I can concentrate on adding content to the subsites I’m working on and get those going as well.

Personal: Today is a good day.

The problems with my car were just the battery dying. I had that replaced, and although it was expensive because I went to a mechanic, they ran tests to make sure the starter and alternator were okay and gave me peace of mind. So, now I can lunge headlong into my weekend plans without fear! I’m pumped anew for the Renaissance Festival on Saturday. I have less money than I’d planned thanks to the car trouble, but I’m still looking forward to it.

Today just…feels good, for some reason. If today was a person, it would have really good karma. ^^ I’ve started working on “Against All Odds” again, which is GREAT, I was really afraid my motivation wouldn’t come back. I’m even in the mood to get some cleaning done tonight, so I’ll actually be able to get the place straightened up before my friends visit! Being in the mood to clean is REALLY odd for me. I hope it lasts until I actually get home, because I have TONS of stuff to do and only tonight to do it all in. >

Site News: I got my weblog working with the layout I wanted, but now that I’ve written this long entry it looks like the background isn’t quite working the way it’s supposed to. I’ll have to do some more tweaking to see if I can get it fixed. The shoutbox is installed and working as well, but I didn’t have enough time last night to customize it to fit with the page. I’ll be modifying it tonight so it fits in a bit better. EDIT: I fixed most of the problems with the layout, except for the piece of the Kotori image that should be above the shoutbox. I’ll have to wait until I get home to my image editing software to fix that. Also on the schedule for tonight is making a layout for my guestbook so I can get that working.

Personal: Yesterday was my birthday, and it was a really great day!

I got to work on time, and I brought some brownies to share that I had made the night before. I got lots of “happy birthday”s from my coworkers, and everyone loved my brownies. Yay! My best friend called me at work to wish me a happy birthday, and I got a card from my grandma in my hometown. My local grandparents took me out to lunch and gave me some cute Halloween stuff for my apartment.

After work, I got some presents from my local relatives, and then my dad took me out to this amazing restaurant for dinner. It was a really expensive and fancy place, sort of an old-fashioned English kind of setup. It was the kind with dim lights and high black seats in the booths, where you could picture middle-aged men kicking back with cigars after their meal. A very impressive atmosphere. The food was amazing. I had fillet mignon with a side of fettucini alfredo and it was awesome. Plus, since it was my birthday there were balloons on the table and I got a little chocolate cake with a candle in it for dessert. Mmmmmm!

So, I had a great birthday. Today, however, is not so good. The weather is really dismal and rainy, and I have a headache. Plus, my car is sick. Since yesterday I’ve been having trouble starting it and I’m scared to death I won’t be able to get home after work. At first I thought it was just the battery, but now I think there might be a real problem with the starter or the engine. If I can start it after work I’m going to go straight to a mechanic, but the timing on this couldn’t be worse. I don’t have a lot of money right now and I’m supposed to drive north on Friday to get my friends and bring them back here for the Renaissance Festival, which has become our traditional annual trip around my birthday. I’m starting to think the trip is cursed this year. Originally we were supposed to go last weekend but I got really sick and my friend’s mom couldn’t babysit that weekend. For this weekend, people keep cancelling on us and the group is shrinking, and now my car might die. I’m really worried.

At long last, I’ve purchased my own domain name. This is something I’ve dreamed of for a number of years now, and I’ve finally been able to make it a reality. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to leave consistent redirects behind me as DSP moved from host to host over the years, so it’s unlikely that anyone who frequented this site in the past is reading it now. I’m hoping that, with some new sites, projects, and ideas, I will be able to reintroduce the web world to my little piece of the Internet now that DSP has a permanent home. Thank you for visiting.
