I'm Neverjay on Tumblr, DA, and @strayjay on twitter. My art/sketch blog is over here.

This journal is dedicated to joy, unrepentant fangirling, storytelling meta, webcomics, fun, and a whole lot of Pacific Rim.

Do you like heist films?

Robin Hood-esque shenanigans?

Stealing improbable objects up to, and including: money, art, planes, a bank teller, a supermarket, christmas, and the entire concept of freedom?

Found families? Adorable badasses? Witty banter? Goofy shenanigans? Excellent and consistent characterization?

Go watch Leverage.

 Every episode is like the perfect heist film. Forget White Collar (get your gross nazi-romanticism out of my art thievery, eck) Leverage has everything you need. An awesome fandom, a perfect ending, and hell, it's even available on Netflix. Go watch Leverage.

 Zootopia was such an excellent movie and a such a joy to watch that I'm still reeling from it --WHAT A RUSH!! I'm going to rock out to "Try Everything" for the next week. Not only am I impressed with the ambition of Zootopia's themes (this movie could have gone to a bad/awkward place veeeeery quickly) so I give kudos to the story team who made an easily accessible film that also acknowledged the difficulty of trying to achieve your dreams in a world that likes neatly defined boxes. Great film, go see it (I hear it actually beat Frozen?) I'm probably going to draw more fan art haha.

SMALL SPOILER: I really like that there are no dogs or cats in Zootopia, only wolves and various wild cats, which makes so much evolutionary sense considering humans don't exist in this world. Like, looking back at it now, I'm so impressed that they kept things as zoologically accurate as possible. THANK YOU, DISNEY.

Hello Listeners....and welcome to Fic Rec Friday!

Welcome to Night Vale fandom has come out with some of the best fic and best fic AU's that I've seen from fandom in a long time. Most of these are longer reads so pack up, bring a snack, and enjoy some fic.

....Huh. Looks like I have a lot to do.

 New Night Vale today! It was good to hear from the glow cloud again (all hail) and the baby glow cloud. Who apparently goes to high school now. (They grow up so fast?) Cecil is not dealing with Carlos' absence very well. His loss of the watercolor painting (and his consent, his identity, his personhood, his mother, his sister, his mysterious brother) like, Cecil's grasp on reality is slim at best. His very realness is at stake. It's a really cool character arc to go through.

The last season was all about external threats. Now, it's all about internal ones. C spoke about how emotional realities and physical realities are equally valid and important. They can differ wildly and can even be at odds with one another. I think June-ish is when each season 'ends' and I'm curious (and terrified) about what the showdown will be. After all, the universe is still unraveling and being eaten at by a bright light.

People are always desperate to give what they wish others would give them.

The worst suffering anyone can experience is suffering alone.

Hoard as many good memories and experiences as you can. Be wealthy in laughter and smiles. It's currency for when shit happens.

Emotions are the symptoms of your experiences, in the same way swearing hysterically when you stub your toe.

Emotions are like water. It can be carried. It can be drunk to nourish you. It can clean you. It can also drown you. Water is a force of nature and there is an ocean inside of you.

The people you choose to hang around are reflections of who you are. The people you choose to have around you are the people you think you deserve.

Money makes things a contract. Always honor your contracts, but be careful not to sell your heart. If you do, though, it's all right. Hearts grow back. It can take a while, like trees.

If anyone gets offended because you are having a hard time, don't talk to them until they apologize. You may get an apology or you may never talk to them again. Either one is a victory.

People are summaries of the lessons they learned.

Progress is often invisible in the present. Consider the future version of yourself you strive to be is as much of a stranger as the version of yourself you outgrew.

Seem to have my focus this week. Renders have started, queue is set up, projects are in development, room is clean. Files are clean. It's a WIP but we are getting to where we need to be.

SO GOOD. SO GOOD, GUYS.Where is my animated series and serialized merchandise. I need a tiny Gipsy Danger (with an even tinier Raleigh and Mako? Pretty please? Or Cherno Alpha?) And I heavily approve of all the AoT and Pacific Rim crossovers. (SEIN IHR DAS ESSEN? NEIN, WIR SIND DER JAEGAR!) <dfn class="dictionary-of-numbers">Five out of five </dfn>stars to all those talented fan artists out there. The stuff is ~gold~
Keeping mum on spoilers in the journal because some people (one person) haven't seen it yet (it's not out yet where they are) and therefore I cannot muppet-flail as my blood demandsMy muppetry is being denied. However, I make no guarantees about the comments! So if you saw it this weekend, what did you think? Amazing? Somehow not-amazing? (I don't believe you)
In other news, art is in production! We're finishing up the last few pages of CurioCity Cats which is nearing the end of it's first chapter [Bravo team!] so expect to see more fan art/completed fan art soon (and some original art as well--I mean whoops...) and maybe ...some other stuff. We'll see.

 KH: Dream Drop Distance I just... love it... so much??? Me loving a Kingdom Hearts game, yeah I know, everyone's surprised. But the gameplay elements were really fun, I loved playing with all the goofy Dream Eaters. (I still have not managed to get the T-Rex one but I am calmly determined) and of course, the twewy crew was there and oh god my heart. Everything I ever wanted. And by the time you get to the last three worlds? Fan-tas-tic. <3

Riders of Berk: I was really expecting this to be like Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and I was so glad this was not the case. The show focuses more on the dragons and bonding and how they integrate into Viking society after being sworn enemies for hundreds of years?? Anyway what am I saying: Go watch it. If you need incentive: more Toothless. There. Done.

Legend of Korra: (I keep meaning to finish my fan art for this whoops) PURE AWESOMENESS. Fumbles a little in the pacing story-wise but still PURE AWESOME. I'm actually way, way more excited for the next season when we finally get into spirit world shenanigans and world-building and ahhhhh *o*

Teen Wolf: I...cannot actually watch this show?? The second-hand embarrassment I get from characters is too great. Yet, I love it anyway. Stiles is the greatest. Scott is a potato. I spend too much time making fun of the misery that is Derek Hale's life. We've almost reached Supernatural levels of angst here.

aaaaand finally Doctor Who! Dinosaurs. on. Spaceships. I've been waiting for television to give that to me since I first saw Jurassic Park. <3 Waiting for the latest episode tonight. Avoiding tumblr for the same reason.

 Tell everybody I'm on my way,
new places and people to see...

Since I've arrived in Florida, it's been foggy, rainy and I've caught a cold. I've woken up at 4AM to catch the bus and I got to say…I AM LOVING EVERY SECOND. Training has been a blast, I got to see the underground for the first time and even engineered my own Magic Moment. It's been a rush-- learning to live on my own. I feel like my head is sloshing with all the new information I've gained. There is so much to know! I hope I find someone else who is playing Re:coded, I haven't played Tag Mode yet and I really want to see it.

I miss my friends and family (especially my little sister)...but I think I can be really happy here, too, because, little by little, I am making dreams come true. :3

the future doesn't scare me at all
nothing is like before...
neverjay: (Default)
 The whole idea of it makes me feel
like I'm coming down with something,
something worse than any stomach ache
or the headaches I get from reading in bad light--
a kind of measles of the spirit,
a mumps of the psyche,
a disfiguring chicken pox of the soul.

You tell me it is too early to be looking back,
but that is because you have forgotten
the perfect simplicity of being one
and the beautiful complexity introduced by two.
But I can lie on my bed and remember every digit.
At four I was an Arabian wizard.
I could make myself invisible
by drinking a glass of milk a certain way.
At seven I was a soldier, at nine a prince.

But now I am mostly at the window
watching the late afternoon light.
Back then it never fell so solemnly
against the side of my tree house,
and my bicycle never leaned against the garage
as it does today,
all the dark blue speed drained out of it.

This is the beginning of sadness, I say to myself,
as I walk through the universe in my sneakers.
It is time to say good-bye to my imaginary friends,
time to turn the first big number.

It seems only yesterday I used to believe
there was nothing under my skin but light.
If you cut me I could shine.
But now when I fall upon the sidewalks of life,
I skin my knees. I bleed.

Kinda how I felt after picking out classes.

 School has come yet again, and--I never thought I would say this but-- I can't wait to get started!  So much is happening this semester: I'm applying for the Disney College Program, (Wish me luck, everyone!) and it feels like I'm being bombarded by butterflies I'm so nervous, I have a full load of animation courses this semester which makes me grin like a loon because I have been wanting to do this for FOREVER AGO. Drawing will be my homework. o/ 

I got to be goofy with my friends all summer (THE BEST) and while it will be sad that we won't be able to see much of each other during school time, I know that we are all trying our best to get where each of us want to be. It might just be me, but I think those dreams of yours are pretty cool, guys. I'm wishing you luck as well.

Later days!

 ..even though it was a couple of days ago!

First off, to my best friend LostFayt (everyone go poke her!) She is amazing and wonderful even though her puns deserve a beating. ( ILU, bro!)and deserves the very happiest of Birthdays--which I think we accomplished through viewing Iron Man 2. HOW MANY EXPLOSIONS?! SO MANY EXPLOSIONS.

Second, happy birthday to me! ...I really don't have as much to say on that. (yay for me?) I am gearing up for Fanime (I'm almost done sewing! ) and I am so glad that it is now summer~ I have so many drawings in the works, that I think you all will be pleased. <3

(Now give me llamas)

 I won first place in my animation class yesterday--okay, it was just for getting my project done the fastest and boy, it was smooooth. It feels a little silly to get all excited about animating something as small as a step to the right--not even a big step--but it means I'm finally getting somewhere, you know? And that is a good feeling.

Also, the Fables: Crosssover came out (I'm sure you could hear the fan yay three buildings away) and man, I so did not expect to fall for an American comic as hard as I did ha ha ha. It's glorious.

Speaking of books, I raided a used bookstore the other day. Bought seven books and I've already read them all. Considering going back. *resists urge*

Enjoyed cosplaying with friends(you know who you are!) and have determined that Shield Maiden Hungary and MANgary are my Favorite. Cosplays. Ever. Genderbent! Valentines was a really fun event and I hope we do something similar next year. :3

~Knowwii out!

You guys...

 I drew for six hours yesterday.


Work + uninterrupted internet = lots and lots of doodles.

...My eyes still hurt.
