Profile Picture

If you haven't noticed(and I really hope you have), I have Mara Jade for my profile picture.

Why? She's awesome.
Now, I'm not a huge Mara Jade fan, more of a Jaina Solo fan. But most Jaina Solo pictures really suck. How can Mara look prettier at 75 than Jaina at 31?
Mara at 75:

See? Awesomeness.

 Jaina at 31:

Well, to be fair, this is in "sepia" or whatever you call it. And artists' renditions of Jaina have so far edged on the less-than consistent side.

 This is Jaina:

This is Jaina....


This(???????) is Jaina:

 Or Tahiri with a hair job. Or Zekk. Heck, it could even be a Yuuzhan Vong.

Anyways, the point is, I feel like changing my profile pic. It'll most likely be another Mara...what do you think?
These are the ones I have done before.


The first picture is possibly my favorite Star Wars picture of all time.  

So what'll it be? And what is your criteria for your profile pic? Whatever you pick, remember it's your face to the world. 
These are the ones I'm considering.

Super cool, but kind of violent. And inaccurate. No one wears that many necklaces. And I always have to remember that my family, or maybe future boss(or husband????) might read this. This is for the world to see, baby. I don't want to project the wrong image, ya know?
And the artists are more accurate than Jaina, although maybe not much. At least they preserve the general hair color.
I love the one from the prelim Choices of One cover, though.
How about a straight, plain:
 Kinda weird...she's looking at you.
 Or should I just keep mine? I like it. Or should I do a Jaina? Purple-pink Jaina or blue Jaina?

Vote on the poll.



  1. I like the one you already have of Mara or the very last picture of Mara the best.

    -Leia <3

  2. I agree with Leia. I never really thought about it as your "face to the world" though. Funny, because now that I think about it, I do see my "internet friends" as their profile pics.

  3. How 'bout these?

    I always thought that that last one was the perfect Mara pic. She's wearing the clothes she typically wore as the Emperor's Hand and she's got the purple/pink lightsaber. It's just way too cool, and almost looks like it's coming straight out of one of the movies.

    Here's some cool Jaina pics.

    Wow, that was a lot of pictures...

    Oh and as far as the ones that you already mentioned, I think the best ones are blue Jaina, pink Jaina or the one that has the forest as Mara's background.

  4. Those pictures are really cool; I've been browsing to the ends of the earth for good Jaina/Mara pictures. But most of those, except that YJK one, aren't really serviceable as profile pictures?
    I forgot how cute Jaina looks in the YJK, like she's five years old or something. She's got that adorable Solo button nose! I can't wait to see an official picture of Allana!...but I digress.

  5. Hm, I'm not sure. Either the blue Jaina or the one you already have. But I'm not completely sure. And come to think of it, you're completely right about your profile pic being "your face to the world".

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
