Everybody seems to be going crazy about the weather at the moment, so here's my little piece on it.

Crazy-ass icicle
It's all snowy.
Also, it hails occasionally.
Right now, it's a bit windy.

Earlier, I shovelled the ice and snow from our drive with my dad so he can get his car out tomorrow. Looking out the window now, the de-snowed part seems like it's all slippery from the weather that happened between earlier and this particular moment in time.

College was closed today, which was damn good 'cause it meant that I didn't have to think up a reason to skive.
However, the trip to London has been cancelled. No WestEndVenture! for me this year....

The ever lovely Jester of Misfortune
This is the bit where you all realise that I'm a freak.


I have dreams/daydreams about alternate versions of myself, from different dimensions or something There are only 5, but to me, it feels like there are lots, as one of them kept getting killed and reborn.

1. The Jester of Misfortune
I don't really know too much about this one. The Jester is from a dark, dark world that looks like it was made by Tim Burton. She brings misfortune not only to others, but herself too. My jester outfit from the EA gigs back in March is based off of this one.  Of course, that was the Jester with a bit of Victoriandustrial thrown in. The actual Jester wouldn't wear a corset (except maybe when she wanted to look particularly 'formal'). You just can't jest around the place while wearing a corset.

2. Sky Pirate Antella
Just because everybody needs a steampunk alter-ego, probably.

3. Unnamed Gargoyle Girl
Basically, a gargoyle who got magicked into being alive, losing most of the gargoyle-like appearance in the process. Possibly the Jester, who had the misfortune of getting turned into a stone creature at the top of some building. I'm not sure. They seem somewhat similar, only this one seems to be a bit more sinister and lacking in most emotions (but then, I'm sure you would after being turned into a gargoyle). Also, she has crazy acrobatic/climbing skills and could rip you apart in seconds.
Unnamed Gargoyle Girl didn't last long, however, as she was, against her will, merged with...

4. Araellus
Now, Araellus is a tricky one.
Arae is some kind of high-ranking battle mage from the Army of Chaos which was, at some point, taken over by the dark witch Magravine, who probably used her freaky mind-control powers to get it on her side.
Magravine and her minions were at war with Xarxes, who was the guy who was in charge of 'Light'. He was crazy powerful and had his own army of followers and his elite fighters known as The Guard. The legions of Order sided with Xarxes, just to balance things out, I imagine.
The two opposing sides, Light/Order and Dark/Chaos, would clash and have epic battles in which poor little Arae would end up getting killed trying to protect her mistress.
This is where is gets a bit tricky.
Araellus has had, so far, has had quite a few lives (I cannot remember how many, the exact number escapes me at the moment. 14, maybe?), but I'm not fully aware of all of them.
The first life of Araellus wasn't sided with anyone, just Chaos. Xarxes tried to get her on his side after telling her about her alignment with Chaos, but she told him to sod off and got stabbed to bits by the Guard ('cause she'd be a threat otherwise).
The second life got approached by Magravine, who got her to join the side of the Dark using her freaky mind control powers.
The fourth life was a man for some reason, perhaps because the third committed suicide. I forget.
The seventh had a fling with Morgan le Fae, which carried over to the eighth and ninth.
The ninth is the one I'm most aware of (apart from the epic battle of the last one). This one was probably the most powerful, rising to be the head of the Army of Chaos and Magravine's second in command. This is also the one that got merged with Unnamed Gargoyle Girl. At some point, she got sent on a mission to somewhere snowy (the place now called Alaska, I've been told), and got hunted down for what seemed like months (When it's dark and snowy and I'm on my own, I have images of standing on my own, my blood dripping into the snow. Consequently, I have issues with snow). This one died because she got turned into stone just before she would have struck down Xarxes with a fatal blow.
The last one (I forget the number), traded in her knowledge to a demon called Azaris to get a super-powered sword in a last-ditch attempt to kill that Xarxes fellow. needless to say, it didn't exactly work. Arae got killed yet again, but she took out most of the Guard (and a fair chunk of the underlings) before she went. I'm pretty sure that Azaris was a sneaky bastard and took knowledge from everyone, rather than just Araellus.

That brings us to me, being the **th life of this chaos battle mage, having no power whatsoever because a demon took away my knowledge of how to do anything.
'Xarxes' is one of my good friends. 'Magravine' is my ex, who turned out to be an evil, manipulative bitch (see how that fits just perfectly?). I imagine that there is a head of the Legions of Order, but I have no idea who that is.

5. Charlotte Lusk
This is the last one. A girl who got sent to an asylum for befriending the wrong person (a woman by the name of Elisa Emerson), who decided to try and have her way with the poor thing. When Charlotte refused and rejected her, Elisa had her sent away in fear that she would ruin her reputation.
Charlotte may or may not be a bit mad, however, as she strongly believed that the other 4 alts were actually her past lives.

Ok, that's a photo from last week, but I didn't
take any this time.
Last night, I was at Sumo.
No, there were not large Japanese men pushing each other around.
To quote Facebook:

* Middlesbrough Empire.
* Every Friday.

5 Rooms!


So, there you go.
Last night was Jagerfest. Various Jager + mixer concoctions including Jager and Fanta (ooh, fruity!) and Jager and Tonic (this is what I drank across the Christmas holiday last year, omnomnom.).

Me and Stacey danced around like drunken fools. It was fun as we weren't properly drunk. Just enough alcohol to not be self-concious. However...
a) It's a well-known fact that I don't dance. At all. Or, at least I didn't dance until October 28th, so I have very little dancing skill.
b) Stacey likes to use me to make her girl-ex jealous. But, you know, whatever. It's fun.
c) Our 'dirty dancing', as Stacey dubs it, attracts creeper men. The kind that try to get you to make out in front of them. And then hit on you. Fucking creepers....
    c.i) However, it makes some people go away. Outside Empire, some guy came up to us, eyeing up Stacey and saying that his friend liked me. Without even blinking, Stacey replied with a simple "We're lesbians." He said we didn't look like lesbians, to which I got pulled into a smooch in reply. That seemed to satisfy him that he wasn't going to get anywhere, and the pair of them buggered off.

I kept attracting men last night. I suppose it's what most girls would want, but... You know...
There were the creeper guys, the creepy-looking guys, those two from outside and this other guy outside who grabbed my stomach as he walked past, saying "Had a good night, gorgeous?"

I think I need shorter hair.
Or bigger boots.

The List

It occurred to me that the only place I have my 'Things to do before I'm 30' list was over on my defunct Tumblr.
  1. Get a degree in Entertainment Design Crafts
  2. Join the circus / Form my own troupe
  3. Follow a band/musician around the country
  4. Go to a music festival
  5. Visit America
  6. Go on a road trip
  7. See Insects vs. Robots 
  8. Become well known for something
  9. Perform on stage
  10. Have an unusual pet
  11. Travel the world
  12. Go to Burning Man
  13. See 50 films at the cinema in a year
  14. Be in a photoshoot
  15. Be an extra in something
  16. Get a job
  17. Move out of parents house
  18. Be in a Nerf War
  19. Sell something I’ve made
  20. Climb a mountain

I've changed #2 slightly to include 'Form my own troupe' as an alternative because it seems like it'd be bloody hard to actually get into a circus, and I've changed #18 from "Finish Final Fantasy X" because I really only put that there as a joke because I couldn't think of anything else.


Dear Blog,
Did you know that the universe hates me?
You didn't?

I bet you did and you're just lying.

Or maybe it's that I hate the universe and I'm just blaming it for other people being stupid.

Care to tell me which it is?

I checked my calendar.

Me, looking nice and short next to the one other
person who turned up to the WGW meet.
Wolfeyland seems most.... Well, 'typical' at the moment.

- Tutors are telling me that I have loads of talent, but I'm not doing nearly enough work.
- I spent a fair bit of time spazzing over somebody, but not having the guts to say anything to them.
- I spent the afternoon hitting a pair of boots with a hammer.
- I searched through god knows how many photos from Goth Weekend trying to find some of me. Shockingly enough, this time, some actually showed up.

Yes, the third one on there is something that happens fairy often.
Speaking of those boots, I quite fancy drawing/painting something on them. I don't really need two pairs of plain black DMs.

Anyway, I'm just blogging because I feel like I've not blogged in a while. Nothing much has occurred, really.
Except that Edgar is sick. Maybe. I'm not sure.
For those of you who don't know, Lord Edgar is my pet rat. I've had him for two and a half years now and, well... He's showing his age. Yesterday, he lost the use of his back legs. He was just dragging himself around his cage with his front feet, flopping down every so often when it got too much for him. He's looking better today - he's been walking normally again, but he's still pretty wobbly. In fact, at the moment, he's flopped down on the floor again.
I'm worried. I don't want to lose him.
Not counting any fish I have had (Oh, Howard! you little fishy murderer!), Edgar has been my first pet. I've not had to go through anything like this before...
