The Scene of the Crime

and let's unveil your greatest alibi
as I watch you return to the scene of the crime
let's ask all your witnesses that will swear
that you were somewhere else that night
and I will stay awake and mine eyes won't rest,
I'll seek out the clues, may my efforts be blessed
I'll follow the trails till I find all the proof that I need
to relieve this ache from my chest

>> you can call me al!
yes, i know. no, i don't go around calling people betty in an indiscriminate manner. yes, i originally adopted it as a nickname because it's the chemical symbol for aluminium.

>> i'm from mexico; my first language is english but my native language is spanish, and so i tend to blame any and all mistakes in one on the other.
this journal is likely to be mostly or all english, though, since it's the language i do creative writing and fun things in. spanish is for work and school. sort of. it's complicated!

>> this is a personal journal! it is for posting personal things (oh my god al seriously tell me more, and other sarcasms), ranging from writing babble to personal life updates to keysmash rage and hide-under-a-table angst.
here's a ~filter poll~ so that you can choose which of these you actually want involvement with, if any!

>> my writing will be at [community profile] copreterito.
if you're familiar with my writing from before this reboot, most of what you know is probably still accurate; however i reserve the right to overwrite canon with little to no warning, which is basically what i was doing anyway i'm just keeping track of it now. in theory. if you are not in a position to subscribe to copretérito or even if you are i'm going to be doing a wrap-up post every month with links to what i've done! ...in. theory.

>> my fanfiction will be at [community profile] antepreterito.
yes, "bands with very few other people writing about them" is my main fandom. in retrospect, i mostly blame simon indelicate, because he's really easy to blame for stuff. c'mon, try it.  something goes wrong?  simon!

[more introductory things go here as i think of them, i suppose]

>> i pretty much never shut up, beware.
the things i never shut up about are 1) many, 2) varied, 3) the decemberists.

filters!

COMMENT WITH YOUR PICKS BECAUSE I HAVEN'T GOTTEN A PAID ACCOUNT YET BECAUSE MONEY ANGST MONEY MONEY ANGST ETC.

COMMENTS ARE SCREENED BECAUSE THAT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD THING TO DO

IF YOU HAVE NO PARTICULAR OPINION I WILL PROBABLY STICK YOU IN FILTERS WILLY-NILLY AND THAT SOUNDS LIKE IT MIGHT GET AWKWARD OKAY

filters you can be on:
*1 writing babble
*2 personal babble
*3 mental issues babble

there may be variants and overlap but that is okay i can figure that out!

and i think that about covers it.

hi!

this is a post mostly so that this journal is not so bleak and empty (if i'm not logged in as me, anyway; on LJ there are two private posts but one is the default LJ 'what are you doing here is things you can do hi' and one is an accidental crosspost of a layout test because i am good at this), so that you know who i am, however vaguely, other than "seems to like the colour red", and so that i can look back at this in two years, facepalming mightily at the fact that i started this as an inept nerd too.

ergo: i'm al (i will also answer to c, to my legal name if you're liza or marika, to "hey you!", to variations on aluminium, to variations on alexander, to pospretérito because it's my username, to... i'm easy, is what i'm saying), but you probably know me as c if you've known me for a while! that's cool, c's a good letter too. chemical symbol for carbon, but for once i wasn't actually thinking of that when i adopted it.

i used to be

[personal profile] lemniscate

on dreamwidth and

[livejournal.com profile] cofmanynames

on LJ. now i'm here!

add away (if you want).

things to do with this journal, like, today:
>> 'protocol' post ("this is what i'm doing, this is where i keep the things i'm doing, this is what you don't do or i will pull your nose")
>> post about new year's eve even though i don't have access to the videos i took or the good photos of my ridiculously boss attempts at eyeshadow / general journal post
>> excuse for a filter poll and i say excuse because i'm putting off getting a paid account so pretend-polls is all you get so far 0k


any questions?
