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)

I am so SICK of myself sometimes jesus

I was stuck in a rut with work and out of nowhere there’s this Italian artist who came to me to ask if I could be her scriptwriter; I check out her work, it’s quite good

So we chatted, and I thought, I wanna do something with Mongols, and I could make them gay Mongols, but also let’s add a whole bunch of politics and conspiracies because I love that shit, right

So I imagine a first storyline that’s quite simple because I haven’t gotten down to reseach yet, and i try to explain it to her via Skype, and I don’t know if it’s a problem of language or what but she says she understands nothing

I tell her, it's okay, maybe you'll understand better once I've written it down

And now I'm stuck again and I have zero motivation to work on the fucking thing -- I also have zero motivation to work on the rest of the stuff I have to do

Why does everything have to be so hard

I need people who feel excited by the stories I invent for them, that's what motivates me, but if I have to fucking drag their weight around as well I just lose all will to do anything, give me SOMETHING to get fuel in my tank fucking hell, I NEED ENCOURAGEMENT I AM AN ARTISTBABY CHANGE ME MY ARTISTNAPPIES

Where's my Akaashi when I need him I want one get me one

There's a cute lil spider who has spun her web in front of my window and it's like a new roommate. I call her Arabella. I check on her from time to time; sometimes her web is destroyed by the rain or the wind, but she spins it again and again. Brave little thing.

Yeaaaaaah this is lazy and boring I know but my version of Window Movie Maker sucks ass and I can't do a lot of stuff with it, plus however much I lie to myself, I don't *actually* have time for this
Anyway
I just really wanted to do this because I'm currently reading the books in French and the Athos/d'Artagnan game is SO STRONG guys, you have no idea, they're so in love with each other and Dumas ships them about as much as I do which is A LOT
It's brilliant.
I love that French is my first language, I love The Musketeers, I love Dumas.
Hence, I can't stop with the fanvids.
Sorryyyyyyy no I'm not

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.

you are aqua
#00FFFF

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

What the fuck, sorry, I don't know how to graphics
And I accidentally a second attempt at something of a fanmix
I should get down to work for fuck's sake

So basically I was stuck on R.E.M.'s "Imitation of Life" as Q's character song, and I kind of built a fanmix around that song and the idea of virtuality and computers and the Internet and how the Self is lost in all that and such, they're kind of cliché songs for that particular subject I guess, but I regret nothing (most of the time)

The perfect couple!
They actually hate each other's guts, but in a sibling rivalry kind of way (and they're not actually a couple).
Sometimes they're stuck together during official events and they have to put up a good face... But they're not putting a lot of effort into it either.
Okay, okay, I'll admit, I just wanted to draw Anubis in a tux.

sevenswells: (PIMP Mycroft (Sherlock))
I just got this idea for a fic, a Mystrade fic
Inspired by the infamous Old Spice commercial
This is the prompt

"Anything is possible when you're on a date with the British Government and not a lady. Mycroft is on a horse."

More specifically, Mycroft takes Lestrade on the most epic date in the history of ever, with spies and diamonds and rescue squads and two tickets to that thing you love.

I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO WRITE IT. I WON'T HAVE THE TIME TO WRITE ANYTHING FIC UNTIL I DIE OF OLD AGE BECAUSE I JUST HAVE TOO FUCKING MUCH ON MY PLATE FOREVER.

But if someone on my f-list wants to write it, please drop me a line, I will make art for you and I will bear your children and forever love you.
sevenswells: (I just wanna tell stories)
This is a bit old but I've just found it; Charlie Brooker interviews TV writers who talk about their creative process, and there's Russell T. Davies and Graham Linehan among them.



(Here are the other parts: part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5 )
It's extremely interesting and also comforting to hear other writers going on about how difficult it is to write professionally and what kind of violence you have to do to yourself to get down to it, and what a brutal, horrifying process it is. I feel much better now that I've heard other people (especially Davies) describe how miserable they are when they're working on a script, and how much they hate writing but love "having written".

I also found a cool article written by Brooker for The Guardian that completely applies to me:
 http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/aug/16/charlie-brooker-writing-deadlines

And finally, this quote:

“All writers are vain, selfish, and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives there lies a mystery. Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” (George Orwell)
