HIATUS/ maybe goodbye?

This has been coming for a LONG time now.

I'm declaring a hiatus that might be indefinite and might not!


I thought I'd never turn into one of these LJ-abandoners and I always hated it when my friends left and couldn't understand why. But now it seems to have come to that. With university, my job and now actually having a damn social life, I haven't had much time for LJ and then when I do get time off I don't make the effort with LJ anymore. I just couldn't be bothered seeing is how I rarely get any comments, the majority of my friends have disappeared and pretty much all of my favourite communities are dead. It seems that what I needed LJ for has been filled by other stuff.

I've got my tumblr set up and y'all can find me at:
http://surreality-productions.tumblr.com/
I'm just posting my original fiction over there, but I do like posts and whatnot, so if you look me up, I'd love to follow you back :)



So ya,
smell ya later.

surreality series; Summer Moon Comes Into Full Phase

This is part three of six (so far) of my Surreality Series. These are stand-alone stories that see me pushing myself free of fandom or genre and simply exploring the boundaries of my artistic abilities. It’s a creative rebellion against the realistic world, diving into Surreality and enjoying the results without worrying of continuations/character development.
This particular piece is a little different from the others, because I feel it isn’t stand-alone. I can feel that there is more of it inside of me, but it’s just about having the patience, time and interest to write more down. I see it developing into a chaptered extravaganza with an amazing ending, but I’ve been distracted by other projects and so this is just the beginning of what could one day develop into an amazing love story, or might just rot away in the black waters of Surreality for forever.
The lyric in the title should give an indication of what it was inspired by. I was having a massive Lady Gaga binge-session in the lead-up to the release of the jaw-dropping G.U.Y. video. It was mostly inspired by the incredible Monster art of Daniel Fernández, he is a truly talented artist who always blows my mind with his depictions of Lady Gaga. Every piece carries such beauty and originality. This piece got everything started, I am so in love with this drawing, I want to hang it on my wall and gape at it for the rest of my life. It took me away and this (unfinished) story is the location.

surreality series; Barbequed Bitch

This is part two of six (so far) of my Surreality Series. These are stand-alone stories that see me pushing myself free of fandom or genre and simply exploring the boundaries of my artistic abilities. It’s a creative rebellion against the realistic world, diving into Surreality and enjoying the results without worrying of continuations/character development.
This one was inspired by my state of mind at the time and Lady Gaga’s performance at South by South-West, specifically the performance of Aura. Something about the image of her being barbequed spoke to me and the angst I was feeling. I needed to exorcise all of the poisonous thoughts inside of me and this story was it, my way of coping.

And I just found out that she has signed her contract and is officially going to be an opening act for Lady Gaga's artRAVE tour. I'm so excited for her, she deserves to be with an audience who will understand her and she deserves the kind of exposure being attached to the Lady Gaga circus will attract. She and Gaga are a perfect match, I can't wait to see how it all goes!

Meagan's List of Upcoming Excitement (aka how she spent all of her much-needed savings)

OMG y'all, so many amazing things coming up for me! At the moment I'm recovering from a cold that had me stuck in bed for three days, nothing too major, it slowed down my university work but I didn't miss any classes, now just trying to shake a persistent and annoying cough. Now that I'm getting better I'm able to fully appreciate all the awesome things awaiting me in these coming months!

June 16th: I finish my first semester of university! I'm hoping to go out on top and continue my streak of amazing grades with my final two assessments. So far I've gotten nothing but HD's (the highest grade possible) on all of my written assessments and I'd really love to get the same for my last two. I can't believe I made it through my first semester without any kind of breakdown or freakout. I've really enjoyed it but I am looking forward to the downtime to get some creative writing down (feeling some serious surreality lately, thanks to Milk) and my bestie and I are pondering going to Melbourne to visit some of our old friends. It's also exciting that this semester is wrapping up because I'm pretty sure that next semester I get to do an actual creative writing class, aka the reason I'm at university, woo!

August 26th: I am going to see QUEEN AND ADAM LAMBERT!
flanders
I am beside myself with excitement, this is a once in a lifetime kind of concert, Queen haven't toured Australia since the '80's. I love Queen so much, one of my all-time favourite bands and I have such a major crush on Adam Lambert, his music is infectious dirty-pop amazement and his voice is incredible and his talent is out of this world. Getting the chance to see both of these amazing acts in one show is mind-blowing. I got a seat in the fifth row so I'm gonna be able to see Adam Lambert so clearly. I can't comprehend the fact that I'm gonna be in the same room as the members of Queen, I'm gonna see Brian May's magnificent silver afro in real life, OMG!!!

August 30th: My second Lady Gaga concert with artRAVE, scored another great package which gives me early entry to the standing area. I cannot wait for all of my ARTPOP dreams to come true. I've been avoiding spoilers for the tour so far, I want to be shocked repeatedly through the whole night. I still don't have my costume yet, I have ideas but I'm going to wait until I get my tax return cheque and maybe shop in Melbourne with my artsy friends.

September 13th: Soda Party with the currently reigning queen of RuPaul's Drag Race Bianca Del Rio. My friends and I have a meet and greet package and I absolutely cannot wait to meet Bianca, she OWNED season six even before she won. She has my same dry sense of humour and all my friends agree that if I were a drag queen, I would be a Bianca doppelganger.


Lots and lots and lots to look forward to. This year has already been really amazing with all the opportunities I've had and I can't wait for the second half to be just as spectacular.

surreality series; I'm Your Disco Ball

This is part one of four (so far) of my Surreality Series. These are stand-alone stories that see me pushing myself free of fandom or genre and simply exploring the boundaries of my artistic abilities. It’s a creative rebellion against the realistic world, diving into Surreality and enjoying the results without worrying of continuations/character development.
This one was largely inspired by Sharon Needles, my nightmare girl; her lyric is used for the title. The story came from a vision I had of a drag queen using the disco ball in a new way, taking the iconic object and making it truly come to life. If the disco ball did come to life, what would it offer us? It features my obsession with death and the continuing plague of homophobia still poisoning our world.
So this is me, all rules gone, just having fun and writing for the love of the craft and for the love of being a weirdo.

LOST: ConMama - Schooling the Yanks

Title::..Schooling the Yanks
Rating::..G
Spoilers::..White Rabbit
Genre::..Fluff
Characters::..Claire and Sawyer
Author’s Note::..I can’t believe that I finally returned to ConMama after God knows how long and then it ended up being platonic ConMama, what on Earth is wrong with me? Despite it breaking all of my usual ConMama rules I think I pulled out a pretty cute fic.
All of the Aussie slang I have Claire use in this fic is 100% real, as an Australian viewer of Lost I was a little disappointed that Claire didn’t get to represent us more fully, the fact that she was Australian was only a kind of passing reference. So in this fic I shine a spotlight on that aspect of her character. If you’re having any trouble understanding any of the slang just leave me a comment and I’ll be happy to explain.
Summary::..Claire tests how much Australian slang Sawyer learnt during his stay in the country.
