1: What did you do in 2016 that you’d never done before?

-I finished my first complete comics series. One that didn’t get dropped before the entire story was told. That was certainly a first.
-Oh yeah I joined a comics authors’ union (and it didn’t go too well, in the sense that I was pretty useless there)
-I tried to go vegetarian, or at least flexitarian. It’s not all completely going according to plan, but I’m making a lot of efforts. I cut off dairy products as well, more for digestion reasons than anything else, and that at least was a success.
-shotgun convention, where I made a fanzine, printed only a limited number of copies out, and sold everything in one day at a convention. It was the best idea ever.
-X-rayed my feet
-got sort of hit on in an onsen in Japan by a drunken lady ; it was really funny
-Also I obtained my 10-years immigration card !
-And there was a certain trip I went on but more on that below

2: Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

To tell the truth I kept none of them. One of them was : be more responsible, and I really don’t think I’ve achieved that. Also, « keep my bedroom clean as much as possible » and… hahaha. Yeah. No.

3: Did anyone close to you give birth?

OMG yes and it was the weirdest shit ever. Because it was a childhood friend to whom I can’t say I’m super close, exactly, but we get along really well, we’re somehow very alike and we’ve followed very similar paths in life… up to this point. So when her baby was born I was super weirded out, because it felt like it was something that had happened to me in an alternate universe, and on some level I felt sorry for me ? Like, the alternate universe me who had a baby ? Because I’m pretty sure it ruined her life as much as it would have ruined mine. Anyway. Super bizarre.

4: Did anyone close to you die?

No

5: What countries did you visit?

JAPAN. Trip of a lifetime. Felt a little weird at first because of all the expectations and fantasies I used to have about it. And when I arrived I didn’t take enough time to recover from jetlag so in the first few days I was kind of tired and depressed, but in retrospect it was a very good trip, even the times where I was off my tits with jetlag


I also went back to Mauritius in the summer but that’s not really the important part, that was just the usual with my family doing their best to get on my nerves.

6: What would you like to have in 2017 that you lacked in 2016?

Enough money to clear my debts… ? Also a published book, I didn’t have one this year.

7: What dates from 2016 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

18th of April, in Japan, where HunterxHunter was published in the Shônen Jump. It was very emotional for me.
And the few days I spent in Miyajima. It was so magical and out of this world.

8: What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Definitely completing my comics series Rhapsody, and also the third volume of Geek & Girly. It was huge for me. And that fanzine I managed to print and sell almost all by myself.

9: What was your biggest failure?

Completely failed to be more responsible as I said before
Haven’t sent my novel to a publisher, haven’t finished my other novel either. I haven’t lost hope or will to do so, I just need more time.

10: Did you suffer illness or injury?

In March I hurt my back pretty badly somehow, just before going to Japan which, if I hadn’t met the very best physiotherapist in Paris who completely cured me after only a few sessions, the whole trip would have been a real goddamn bitch, what with all the horrible futons I had to sleep on throughout the country.
In Miyajima I managed to hurt my knee while climbing down a mountain, which again would have been a bitch for the rest of my trip if I hadn’t gone to see a Japanese physical therapist who didn’t speak a word of English. The conversation in my shitty Japanese and gibberish will be something I’ll remember for the years to come (here’s another first : going to see the doctor in Japan)

Oh, yeah, and also, I finally got my ten-year French immigration card. No big. I've only toiled and suffered for more than six years (more than twelve, if I count my years of uni) to obtain it but it's fine (call me THE MOST PERSISTENT MOTHERFUCKER you know, humor me)

08/03/2014:

L'aveu d'Athos à d'Artagnan concernant l'exécution de son ex-femme (et la fleur de lis et tout le reste) est une scène horrible, awkward et poignante, ça m'a tué de feels; parce qu'Athos en parle d'abord en disant que c'est arrivé à un """"""ami""""""" à lui et c'est douloureusement transparent que c'est bien de lui qu'il s'agit ("Un de mes amis, un de mes amis, entendez-vous bien ! pas moi, dit Athos en s'interrompant avec un sourire sombre" ... oh, Athos :(((( ), sauf peut-être à d'Artagnan qui de prime abord ne remet pas cette prémisse en question... jusqu'à ce qu'Athos parle de l'accident où "l'ami" découvre la fleur de lis (ce qui se passe après est décrit en une seule phrase, et pour moi d'une brutalité infinie: "-Le comte était un grand seigneur, il avait sur ses terres droit de justice basse et haute, il acheva de déchirer les habits de la comtesse, il lui lia les mains derrière le dos et la pendit à un arbre"). Et là, l'échange qui m'a fait un coup au coeur:

"- Ciel ! Athos ! un meurtre ! s'écria d'Artagnan.
- Oui, un meurtre, pas davantage, dit Athos pâle comme la mort."

TEARS. TEARS EVERYWHERE. )

Title: We Can't Stop
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sevenswells
Artist/Song: "We Can't Stop" by Bastille (Miley Cyrus cover)
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Summary: Sherlock, John and Mary make my heart bleed. Although this vid is more about Sherlock and his relationship to John that's bound to change since John is marrying Mary; so it's sort of slashy and sort of angsty idek leave me alone
Rating: Gen
Spoilers: This is pretty much all of the Sign of Three that I crammed into one fanvid, it's even in chronological order
Notes: I sort of slap-dashed this fanvid together because I really, really wanted to make a fanvid about this glorious episode and I really, really wanted to use this particular Bastille gem with it
Made with Windows Live Movie Maker, it was the first time I used it and it was very limited so the editing is a bit basic -- but still, the song matches completely

Nevermind The Empty Hearse, wasn't The Sign of Three AN AWESOME EPISODE OR WHAT?????????

Hey LJ,

I miss you. This place sure looks abandoned, what with the advertisements and the same icon everywhere when I used to change it with each new post and the banner that hasn't been changed since forever either. It needs a bit of brushing-up, true.

Not that it's news or anything, but I'm working a lot. Not very good or fulfulling work, at that. Need the money to eat, et cetera. So I need to regroup a bit, center myself, and this is the place to do it, isn't it? Always been. Tumblr is fun and all, but my true heart belongs to you, LJ (sucks for you, I know, Tumblr gets the mindless fangirling and you get the long whining posts).

Hey, did you know I went to Italy for my holidays? For the first time, too. All on my own, fifteen days. Just came back. Naples, Rome, Florence, Lucca, and Venice. And I saw Pompeii. God, Pompeii is so fucking incredible. And so is Venice. Such gorgeous places, such impossibilities. I still haven't quite come down from that particular high yet I guess, I just hope I won't crash too hard when the inevitable return to earth will come.

Anyway. In an attempt to "center myself", I wanted to post pictures of the wall behind my desk, which basically serves as a mood/inspiration catalyst, and represents quite well my state of mind as well as my aesthetics. Sort of.

Cold night, strange dreams, memory stuck like glue )

I've turned 27 today (er, yesterday, as it's two in the morning of the 31st of october right now) and this birthday was the coolest thing ever since the last one.

As always, so spoiled, SO SPOILED OMG )

Thank you guys for all your gifts and vows ([livejournal.com profile] falling_voices, [livejournal.com profile] coloredink, I heart you my lovelies!), you made this birthday very, very special to me, and I think I'm going to carry a smile as big as Nine's for at least a whole month!

TOO MANY FEELS
TOO MANY FEELS IN ONE EPISODE
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THESE FEELS ARE DOING

It's like those characters being in a law firm is just a pretext for EVERYONE PUTTING THEIR EMOTIONS ON TRIAL AND TESTIFYING ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS IN COURT

IT'S LIKE...

A GIANT METAPHORICAL LAWSUIT AGAINST CARING AND IT'S A LOST CAUSE BUT SOMEHOW CARING IS GOING TO WIN
