Went on a shopping spree this morning and since I had promise to show [ profile] gokuma my goodies, here they are:

Image heavy and I should get paid for all the free advert there's in this post )
marinliliz: (X-mas)
Nothing damps my Christmas spirit like decorations in shop windows up in early October when it's still 25ºC (77ºF) out there - I actually saw chocolate Santa's on sale in late September (probably last years stock); tons of X-mas adds on TV, Radio, Billboards for months before X-mas. So I try to ignore it all until I feel "Christmas-y" 

"Christmas-y" for me is cold December days, nightfall around 5pm, city streets all lit up with decorations, a Harry Potter movie (I hate it when it premiers on Summer), a warm cappuccino and lemon pie after a hectic X-mas shopping spree and the anticipation of spending the 24th and 25th with family, lots of food, sweets and presents.

So with 17 days to go I thought it was time to get in the season's spirit and nothing does that better for me than setting up my tree. 
Oh the weather outside is frightful... )

Step 1: Put your MP3 player on random
Step 2: Post the first line or so from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly. (Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!)

Hi, f-list, long time no see:P

Emerging from my lurking mode to bring you a meme ganked from [info]bosska_ak 

1. Post a list of up to 25 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/bands [fannish etc.] that you've had an obsessive fannish love or interest in at some time in your life.
2. Have your f-list guess your favourite character/member from each item (some have might more than one character)
3. When someone guesses correctly, strike-through the item and put the name
Guess... )

Here's a few pictures I took yesterday of some of the many illuminations in the city  of Lisboa, just to wish you all the happiest of Holidays.
X-mas in Lisboa )

marinliliz: (X-mas)

And now I've a new computer (this one) much sooner than I had planned. It was a joint effort and I still have to buy a new monitor (cos these days computers aren't sold with monitors, probably cos there's monitors that cost as much, if not more than a desktop) but until then I've a brand new computer. *dances*
marinliliz: (X-mas)
So I really am computerless! T___T

The techs couldn't do anything to my poor machine; the CPU was fried. There was no way to fix it, only replacing the part but because my computer is so old to replace it they would've to replace most parts 'cos what's out there these days is not compatible with the hardware of my machine. The cost is nearly that of a new computer and with less quality to what's available.

So I'm gonna have to buy a new machine; thankfully Christmas is just around the corner and my birthday is in January, so some extra money will be coming in but still it is going to be an unexpected expense.

In the mean time I'll be using my friend's laptop when he doesn't need it. I got it till next week. Lets see if I can finish and post some fics while I have it.
marinliliz: (X-mas)
So my old computer has died down. Still have to see what the techs say, but there were rumors about it being something to do with the motherboard so I'm not very hopeful:( It's a quite old machine (from 2000) and the only thing I added to it was memory, it was bound to happen someday.T__T

In the mean time I've borrowed a laptop from a friend and will be using it whenever he doesn't need it; for now I have it until friday then he'll need it in the weekend and then I'll have it again all of next week.

I'll be working on the Mistletoe Kisses and maybe some Sandbox Society things and post whenever I have the time and the computer with me.

Not related to this but it'll probably be affect by it, I'm going to postpone any updating of Building from the Ashes until some time in January, I hit a plot-block and have plans to do some things for X-mas and now with this it will take a while to get back on track with BftA.

I'll keep you updated. See ya.

Marin out!

Just taking a bit of my Christmas Eve hectic schedule to wish you all a very

marinliliz: ([Bleach]- ByaRen dirty)

...than bother people with idiotic messages?

I got this PM and then a mail from a or britbrit08 on and apparently I wasn't the only one, she's been sending it through to some Bleach slash writers. See this post of [profile] bababanaba  for more reactions.

What's funny is that now her mail isn't accepting replies. I'm guessing she got more than what she bargained for and people started spamming her inbox with not so kind replies to her 'pleas':

I was kind and polite and didn't even go into the 'sick' business, I don't think it was worth it . It just amazes me what people trouble themselves with. Did she really think that her mail would make me (or any of the other writers) stop playing with the characters and having them involved in hot, smexy gay sex just because she asked?!

I think that it might just have the opposite reaction, at least for me. I have been in a writing slump for a few months but this really is spiking things and giving me a need to write I haven't had for awhile now. It serves her right!

*off to write Byakuya in hot, sweaty, buttsex with two other MALE partners*
marinliliz: ([FFVII]- Zack & Cloud)
In March I entered a friend's contest in Y!gallery; he wanted people to draw or write something with Zack and Cloud from Final Fantasy VII under the theme of Winter.

So I did and wrote Six Winters, which ended up snatching the third place in the overall contest and the first in the writing contest (there we were only two participants in the writing category, thoughXD). -- If you have an account over at y!Gallery you can see the other entries to the contest, and even if you don't, three of the entries are still viewable.

Anyway, my third place entitled me to a prize/reward: a drawing by SpookyDeadalus, which is a real gift cos he's such an amazing artist.

Details settled he drew a scene from the second part of the fic and let me share it with you.

Unconsciously, Zack raised a hand to the tormented lip, rescuing it from the assaulting white teeth. Soothing the afflicted area with his thumb )
marinliliz: ([Bleach] - Aizen-sama)
I'm writing this Bleach ficlet, set roughly about 50 years before the current timeline of the series; with Byakuya, Kaien and Ukitake as the main characters. And I've been wanting to know more of  their interactions. Things like how they knew each other, who was first to obtain a seated position on a division, their family background , you know, more detailed information.

So today I went and read the latest chapter (chapter -105) and it's like Kubo-sensei has read my mind, there's enough material  to work on and then there's young Byakuya that had me squealing like mad. He is the cutest thing ever (see pic below). *KYAAAAA*

And on another (but related)  topic, can anyone from my OH WISE, FLIST, tell me if Rukia's last name (before she was adopted into the Kuchiki family)  was ever disclosed? I've been searching and found nothing.

The thing is I'm writing another fic, a AU ByaRen set in the present days; it involves hotels, hotel rooms, steamy smex in hotel bathrooms, I think you can see where this is going.XD And Rukia has a part in it all but is not, initially, attached to the Kuchiki clan, so I was wondering if her name had been used. If not could you suggest names for her, something tha goes well with Rukia. Thank you in advance;]

Hi there, still alive here; barely, had the worse case of flu since I can remember and still haven't got ridden of a nasty cough, but other than that, all is cool.

I saw this in someone's journal at Y!Gallery and thought it would be fun to do. Her names  were much cooler, somehow Portuguese names  don't make this work so well. My favorite one is my gangsta name.

See ya^_^

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Live Journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

This was harder than I thought and yeah, I'm completely into Anime OSTs these days:

1. The Cure - "Let's Go to Bed"
2. Fiona Apple - "Criminal"
3. YUI - "Life"
4. 30 Seconds to Mars - "Savior"
5. Yoko Kanno - "Strangers"
6. Mai Yamane - "Gotta Knock a Little Harder"
7. Steve Conte - "No Reply"

Seen it in a number of journals but officially mooched from [profile] annieroo2 .

It was surprising to say the least, but some things do sound right. And after careful consideration, I realized that I like it.

Now you know who's in charge. >.<

You're Yamamoto Genryuusai, Captain of the First Division! You're the one in charge, and you make a lot of decisions. People respect you highly and listen when you give advice or direction. You might seem to be a non-agressive type, but watch out when someone drives you to the point of fighting!

So I went to my dermatologist appointment, as I do every six months, cos I have this hair problem. Nothing much about it, I've doing this for 8 years now and it seems I'll have to do it for the rest of my life, or so claims the doctor, course he could be just trying to keep me as a costumer, I mean patient.
I did the usual nitrogen treatment, so far so good, the normal prickles as the nitro reactivates the blood vessels so my hair will grow a bit more. Back to the room where he writes the prescriptions and the first question kinda stuns me: "So any babies planned or on the way ?" WTF, hell no, do I look like someone who's going to have a baby?o_O Now that I think about he was probably asking because maybe some medicine he prescribed might be harmful to a fetus, but at the time all I could think was I'm still only 25, I don't want any kids just yet, HEEELLLPP!!!
So after that the doctor starts this soliloquy about how the weather has been completely of track, summer from late April to mid October (here it should start in mid June and end in mid September) and how that unbalances the body, especially in my case cos the hair cycle follows the weather and if the weather's off so is the hair, and how the problem with my hair is not what falls but what doesn't grow.
Suddenly he's stars talking about the desertification of the interior regions and the aging population
of the country, saying that people used to have loads of kids and now have only one or two making us an aging country and as old people die the ones left aren't enough to replace the ones that are gone. Ok, a "nice" and accurate sociological view of western world societies, so what does that has to do with anything?!? As if he read my mind, he pointed to my head and said your hair is like this, the old ones die and fall, as they should, but the new ones aren't enough to replace them. And he went back to the prescription saying that because of all this he'll have to reinforce my meds, wished me a merry xmas and a happy new year (cos we wont be seeing each other again for 6 months) .Dumbfounded I left his office with the feeling that that was the weirdest appointment I had ever had.
