Welcome  
So yeah, this is mostly a fic journal. If you can't access an entry, it means that I haven't got round to finishing it yet and have locked it to me until I do.
Expect more crack pairings than you can shake a stick at. I'm always open to suggestions, just remember that I write slowly and get distracted easily.

Hi, Notepaddoodler!

Friends?
twitchytwitch on August 30th, 2009 04:16 pm (UTC)
Why ever the heck not? x3

(or maybe friend me on my writing journal, sewnonheart)
Laurel: Yamato // Hehelaurelsblue on August 30th, 2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
Or maybe both!
twitchytwitch on August 30th, 2009 04:27 pm (UTC)
Well, why not?

Yamato. xDD
Laurellaurelsblue on August 30th, 2009 04:32 pm (UTC)
Just to warn you, now that I realised you're from Saudi Arabia, I will have to ask you loads of questions about what it's like there and compare it with my memories of Morocco.

Yamato's funny. /nod
twitchytwitch on August 30th, 2009 05:05 pm (UTC)
Very, very different, from what I've seen when I was in Maroc myself. x3

Eh, ask away, but try to avoid culturally insensitive, moronic, and borderline racist questions, please. For example, no asking me if we ride camels to school (as awesome as that sounds, I take the bus, other girls/boys walk or have a personal driver and I've only ever seen a guy ride a horse through the neighborhood twice in my life) ^_^

Even though you appear much too smart to fall into the typical oblivious Westerner trap, just a forewarning!
Laurellaurelsblue on August 30th, 2009 05:21 pm (UTC)
You mean that you don't? /jk
Seriously though, do people actually ask you that?

My grandpa and his siblings used to have to catch a horse (literally) to get to school. That was an Australian farm in the 30s though.

I remember when I told some girls at my old school how couscous was traditionally eaten (in a central dish) and they said that was very unhygienic. It's a good job I didn't tell them about the normal toilets in Morocco...

I lived in Morocco for the best part of eight years so I like to consider myself more knowledgeable than the average Westerner. It helps that both my parents speak (Moroccan) Arabic and my dad knows classical as well.

Racism towards Arabs particularly annoys me. /nod
twitchytwitch on August 30th, 2009 05:57 pm (UTC)
Not often, but I do get dumb questions like that.

Sounds amusing, but yes, that's on a farm and in the past!

Are they squatters? Honestly, I find them a hell of a lot more hygenic than the chair-like ones.

If you actually know how to use it, no part of you touches anything, so you can get away clean!

Haha, we don't do the central dish thing much (well, NOW we do, but that's because my step-mother is from Maroc), but we do eat with our hands if we're going for a bedouin/desert nomad feel.

Classical Arabic is gorgeous.♥

Great! We'll get along swimmingly.
Laurellaurelsblue on August 30th, 2009 06:24 pm (UTC)
I've heard camels aren't particularly comfortable rides anyway.

Yeah, but they'd probably still consider it weird. Except your feet/shoes and the public ones can be pretty bad if people don't aim properly.

We don't mostly because not enough people eat at the same time to make it worthwhile. We used to more when I was younger though.
I'm curious, why do you call it Maroc?

I really wish I could actually speak Arabic. I know a few words of the Moroccan sort but that's it.

Yay!
twitchytwitch on August 30th, 2009 06:57 pm (UTC)
Y-you should see Saudi public squatter toilets. Outside of malls, they're all pretty horrifying. I WISH I could say that bad-aimers were the worst problem...

Moroccans mostly speak a merging of Arabic and English.
They never call it Morocco, only Maghreb/Maghrib (Arabic) and Maroc (French).

As for why I do it while speaking in English... personal preference and much less of a headache for me to figure out how to type considering I never call it Morocco! ^o^;

It's a beautiful language. ♥

Hee!
Laurellaurelsblue on August 30th, 2009 07:12 pm (UTC)
I see your Saudi public squatter toilets and raise you Moroccan long-distance train toilets shortly before cleaning. Bad-aimers are also not the worst problem there...

Really? I'd always thought that the French influence was heavier.
I know. I took French all the way through school and Morocco was my chosen GSCE oral topic.

Ah, it just seemed odd to me, especially considering that's the French name, not the Arabic one. Is that what your step-mother calls it as well?
twitchytwitch on August 30th, 2009 08:02 pm (UTC)
^^;;; Never had the need to use a toilet on the trains, so I won't argue! Sounds bad, though.

Nope, that's mostly in the urban areas. In the rural ones, some people might not even know more than a few words in French!

Not unless she's speaking French, she usually calls it Maghrib. It is odd, which I am, admittedly. xD;;;

...Where did the notif for this go?
I've seen that. *totally stalks that game*

Sure, I'd be happy to.

I noticed. :(

That's fine.

Hi there!

So I'm assuming you're the same laurelsblue who contacted me through FFN (I'm coincident there), and if so, that you're a fan of Shisui art. A friend and I have been trying to expand the fandom for the poor neglected guy, so she made a photobucket group for all the Itachi/Shisui art we've seen so far--I thought you might enjoy it, and also be able to use some for your RP'ing :)

Obviously there aren't a lot of pieces there right now...and most of them are mine (seriously, step it up, Shisui fandom!) but hopefully it'll clue people into the pairing's existence and pique their attention. And if you know any Itachi/Shisui art that's not there, feel free to add it!
Laurellaurelsblue on April 28th, 2010 09:32 pm (UTC)
Sorry this took so long.
Yeah. I'm rather lazy and uncreative so I use the name laurelsblue practically everywhere.

Actually my constant and obssessive browsing of the interwebs has provided me with plenty of iconable Shisui art for RP purposes.

I have a bunch of Shisui art linkshere and here actually. Not all of them include Itachi though.

Katsukat and darizard on Tegaki have both drawn some very pretty Shisuis. Here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Whew. It's just a matter of looking in the right place.

Umm... hey! I remember reading some fics of yours with Hana in them, and so, since it's been awhile since she was in the manga, I thought you might like to see this.

Just a panel, but I got pretty excited when I saw her. What do you think?
Laurellaurelsblue on November 4th, 2010 05:28 pm (UTC)
Oh, I saw that too! It surprised me that she was in the Special Ops division but I suppose they need trackers more than most of the others.
トマト。redasatomato on November 5th, 2010 02:38 am (UTC)
She would be a good candidate in that case--with the three Haimaru brothers she'd be able to cover more ground than some in a sense. My guess for having her there is to provide a bit more into the brother-sister dynamic between Hana and Kiba. I mean, Tsume was paired up with Kiba back when Pein attacked Konoha, so maybe Kishimoto's giving her a turn now?
Laurellaurelsblue on November 5th, 2010 05:21 pm (UTC)
I really hope so!
トマト。redasatomato on November 6th, 2010 01:28 am (UTC)
Same here--it would be so cool...
