"I'm not afraid to die, I'm already dead."


"But this is different; being blown up isn't walking around and drinking with your buddies dead, it's little bits being swept up by a janitor dead and I don't think you're ready for that."


"Are you?"

Thanks to [info]tessisamess Making a beautiful layout for icon journals, I'm going to restructure how the tags are done and put a bunch of stuff up!

The CW has forsaken me!

Usually, I'm pretty okay but now both my sunshines Ray Palmer and Nora Darhk are leaving Legends and I tell you, I'm angry.

And another one!

For reals, I'm just gonna make posts that point out tumblr graphics style choices from now on because what in the fresh hell is this:



The other end of the spectrum, eesh.

Well I feel the need to reupload some of my old icons and do some new ones. So keep an eye out for those!

Today on what I hate about Tumblr...

Gather round kids, let me tell you a story. In the old days, the days when LiveJournal was in its prime, I had this friend who used to make icons which were always very...let's say gritty; you know the type that like only focuses on one colour and dulls everything else? It's never been a look I was fond of, in fact, I started making deliberately bright icons to combat that ugliness but on tumblr, there has been a disturbing resurgence of that trend. Let us, for example, take a look at this:



Just...why?

And everybody makes graphics like this nowadays. Am I just old? Is that it?

Yoo [info]iseethelight, I need a second opinion? At first, I was going to skip the wall scene because of all the white but Michael's. Faces. So I did them and ??? I think this looks nice? Help?



Yes/No? Do you hear a choir of angels sing?

A friend told my yesterday that I wasn't as good a writer as I had been the last time we wrote together (Which was about four years ago) and it made me wonder, has the fact that I've been rping on Tumblr made me a worse writer? People certainly have lower expectations there and I don't feel like I have to try as much and when you do try, it goes largely unnoticed. I miss the structure of journal-based rp.

Deleting a lot of my old journal entries here because they're just cringey now, planning on actually dedicating my character development journal to you know, character development. Hopefully it'll help me find a nice game or two in the process.

It's been a while since I've seen a meltdown like this on IJ, it's really quite fascinating.

Happy New Year Peeps! So because of photobucket's dicketry, I've had to find somewhere else to host my icons, luckily I have found a place and I shall be uploading all my things again! -suck it photobucket and your uggo watermarks, ain't no one got time for that-

If you're out there and you're wanting icons, now is a good time to ask!

So Photobucket sucks now and has put it's uggo watermark on all of my icons which ick, I can't stand. I'll have to reupload them I guess? I just don't know where to, imgur I guess but because they don't do concurrent filenames, it's going to take a damn long while. Any suggestions?

The State of Tumblr

Tumblr is collapsing you guys, the staff came out and said 'we want to build a better, more positive Tumblr' So they're going to be removing all the porns! oh noo. It's kind of funny, I can see it being something that will break a lot of people.

A Reintroduction of Sorts

Who the hell are you?: Well hi, if you've friended this journal that means we've met at some point. Let me give you a reminder! I'm Ally, I'm Australian, old as cheese and I've been RPIng for a long time now, my goodness.

Ally! Where have you been?: Tumblr mostly, after some unpleasantness drove me away from this site back in the day (and in the dying days of livejournal) I found the place to be for RP was Tumblr! It was an adjustment to say the least but I survived pretty well there for a while but nowdays I somewhat tire of it; it's crowded, you get ignored, people are hella cliquey and as always, timezones are quite a problem so...but hey it's fine! My personal blog is rocking, I get to post all my edits and I follow awesome people who post about their ships and cats! Gotta love cats. If you ever want to go by and secretly spy on me, feel free to do so here.

Say, didn't you make icons?: I did, I still do. My icon comm on here was [info]quieticons which I've let fall by the wayside tbh, mostly because I had everything hosted on Photobucket and gosh isn't that lame now? If you're looking for new icons, best place to find them is on my icon tumblr quietxicons

What fandoms are you even in nowdays?: For a while I was heavily into Once Upon a Time, really longer than I should have been, I could see the cracks starting to show and it went downhill so fast. Let me talk to you for a year about what happened to OUAT. It's a trip. Other things include:

    The Flash: Is good, the second half of last season not so much but it's picked up again.
    DC'S Legends of Tomorrow: Um, my baes! Seriously the best show I watch right now.
    Gilmore Girls: Fun fact! I never actually saw Gilmore Girls until last year? It was just never on TV here but now I adore it.
    Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Heroes of Olympus: Years later I'm still reading these books, doesn't help the fact that Rick Riordan decides to put out one a year. I'm almost done the series thank goodness.
    iZombie: My beautiful Zombaes, the only zombie related thing I will watch tbh, I love me some sassy David Anders and Rose is my treasure <3
    Marvel: Well duh, it's Marvel. Such a good time to be in it now days too.
    Tangled: The Series: Have you guys seen Tangled the series though? It's so good!
    Overwatch: Not a tv show but I'm very into the lore at least, plus I play Overwatch...terribly...
    Doctor Who: Is good again? Not that I had a problem with Peter Capaldi, far from it but oi, did I have a problem with Clara. I had stopped caring because of her.


And who do you play?: I've always been a bit of an RP chameleon, I can adapt to a lot of different shows if I know them. I tend to stick to canon more than OC characters nowdays, I'm not creative enough to make people with elaborate backstories anymore, I need a base to work with.

What can IJ do for you?: Help me get back to RPing, I consistently played characters for long stretches who get constantly forgotten by the fandoms they are in and if you don't put out (seriously everyone is sex obsessed) then you get forgotten about. I love actual structure, and stories and character building.

What will I find here?: Me ranting about stuff probably? Metas on my old characters (the ones I can remember anyway, my brain is not good) And a bunch of other things I'm sure.

Thank you for reading! I hope you have a nice day!

My icon journal is so messy, I wish I could just start over with it, I don't mind the effort but I know it would mess up [info]wikicon's tracking if I did that. Guess I'll have to do it the old fashioned way.

Part of me is like I should update my icon comm again, yeah! But then I realize how much that truly is and I'm like oh...oh wow that's a lot. I'd probably end up flooding the pb updates comm for days on end.

Well I'll tell you, it's been a long time since I've been back here boy howdy but with Once's series finale tonight (A merciful death tbh) I find myself wanting to go back to my old ways, I miss journal rping. Perhaps I will hang around, see what's good.

First things first, a good ol' spring cleaning.

Timezones and You

Lets talk about timezones! Now when I join a game, I list my timezone as UTC +9, but what the hell does that mean exactly? I have a little dealy on my firefox that shows me the timezones of my friends overseas, I know where you live ~oooooo~

For example timezones in America right now are:

Pacific: Thursday 10:35 pm
Central: Friday 00:35 am
Eastern: Friday 1:35 am

And my timezone right now, right nooow is well it's Friday, 3pm. I bet you all get your rping done in the daylight hours, don't you? It can really be rather inconvenient. I still love you! I just...well I need to sleep sometimes.

Sometimes on the weekend I do get up early to watch the video game show I like which if you have a limited window, that is the best time to catch me!

This has been a public service announcement.
