I'm Stephanie. Hi.
Don't add me if:
-you don't wanna know horribly intimate details about me
-you won't respect my opinions or preferences
I grew up in San Diego and am currently working on my Bachelor's in 3D animation. My college life has been bumpy, but I'm on the right track now. I lost my part time job at a nearby women's gym, and I'm currently unemployed.
I'm passionate about my fandoms. I am a die-hard Sonic the Hedgehog fan and probably always will be. Many people know me because I've been drawing Yoshi and posting it on the internet for over 10 years. I've created my own original characters, but I haven't really done anything with them, partially because no one on the internet cares about OCs as much as they do fanart. I'm a hopeless romantic and a 'shipper, and I shamelessly 'ship The X-Files (MSR), E.R. (Carby, Mark/Susan), Harry Potter (Harmony), Sonic (Tails/Fiona), NCIS (Tiva, McAbby), Bones (Booth/Brennan), and Lie to Me* (Cal/Gillian). I'm also a gamer (if you couldn't tell) and a fan of games like Sonic Adventure DX, NiGHTS, Mario Kart 64/Wii, Smash Bros., Pokemon, and Lunar.
I use my journal primarily as an outlet when I'm depressed or excited. I suffer from social anxiety, so this can happen quite often. I don't usually post art unless I'm particularly proud of it. If peeps want to follow my art, they can watch me on DeviantArt. I'm no pro, but it's a lovely little hobby.

Where the flying hell did you get that username from?: Named half after my old parakeet, Luna (who was, incidentally, named after a Nickelodeon moon shoe that got stuck in the garage door on our way to buy her), and half after yoshi, the loveable dinosaur whom I was totally into when I first got the internet.
I make my own icons unless otherwise noted (in the keywords). The following sites provided brushes, fonts, and whatnot:
Nocturna.net | Insomniac Brushes | Lush Brushes | DaFONT | Nefarious LJ Icons (brushes) | yellow_dusk | Classic.tere-art.com | icon_tutorial | Evenstar Art | .:Daydreaming:. | VBrush | jadedicons | feikuai | creamuts
Things I can't stand: I'm actually very tame and don't "hate" things by default. I feel hate is a very extreme, self-destructive feeling, so I tend to steer towards avoidance and sorrow or pity. Though, there are things that I can't stand, so... beware:
- 'Ship wars. I'm starting to think 'shipping should be considered a religion, since certain 'ships make me lurch just as bad as some religious beliefs, traditions, and ideas.
- Religious fanatics. I'm Unitarian. I think everyone should believe what they want, you and me included. So--please respect me as I respect you and leave well enough alone, please. I can't STAND when people tell me I'm going to hell for not believing in Jesus.
- Bullies. Again with the 'leave well enough alone' thing. I don't pester you; I don't call you names, belittle you, humiliate you, so don't do so to me. Don't do it to others, either.
- Art thieves. I have alot of these. People will take my artwork and either trace it out-right or take the actual PIECE ITSELF, remove the name, and claim it as their own. DON'T DO THAT. For the love of Pete, I'm the one who put all that effort in, not you. Stop stealing what little glory I have.
- Thieves in general. Yeah, take something that belongs to someone else so you come out on top and the other person gets screwed over royally? SO HONORABLE!
- Mean customers. The ones who try to rip you off and throw hissy fits over the fifty cents you didn't get marked off an item. This is what happens when you work in retail.
Susan: "Oh my god, what is that? *points at humongous glasses he's handing her*"
Bartender: "Two 'sacrificial virgins.'"
Susan: "How much alcohol is in there?"
Bartender: "Enough to make you forget you're being hurled into a volcano."
Susan: "Ah, I get it. ..I think."
Dr. Morgenstern: "Listen, Carter, what's the difference between a Urethra and a garden hose? ......... Let me tell ya, there's a vas deferens."
Carter: "This place grows on you."
Abby: "So does foot fungus."
Susan (while plastering Carter's leg when he's asleep as a prank): "Why are we doing this?"
Mark: "Because putting his hand in a bucket of warm water would be juvenile."
Carter: "Yeah. I spend 23 hours a day wondering whether we're wrong for each other, wondering whether we've got the energy that we need to get through everything that we seem to get into, whether the baggage we both bring would sink a small ship, but, um, in the 24th hour, I realize I've been thinking about her for 23 hours, and I come back to there's something about her...that I can't stay away from. Something about her that makes me want to... (pauses, then chuckles) ...love her."
Joey: "It just seems so futile. All these women and...nothing. It's like I'm Superman without my powers. I have the cape, and yet I cannot fly."
Chandler: "Now you understand how I feel every single day. The whole world is my lesbian wedding."
Joey: "Man, this is weird. You ever realize Captain Crunch's eyebrows are actually on his hat?"
Chandler: "You think that's what's weird? Joey, the man's been captain of a cereal for the last 40 years."
Chandler "If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y’know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids will walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man," they'll shout!"
Chandler: (enters with food) "Men are here."
Joey: "We make fire. Cook meat."
Chandler: "Then put out fire by peeing, no get invited back."
Ross: "Look, I don't care-- it starts at eight, we can't be late."
Phoebe: [Rhyming] "We could not, would not, want to wait."
Melissa: "Why's it so dark in here?"
Mulder: "Because the lights aren't on."
Scully: "Mulder, I wouldn't put myself on the line for anybody but you."
Mulder: "If there's an iced tea in that bag, it could be love."
Scully: "Must be fate, Mulder. Root beer."
Scully: "I'm just constantly amazed by you. You're working down here in the basement, sifting through files and transmissions that any other agent would throw away in the garbage."
Mulder: "Well, that's why I'm in the basement, Scully."
Scully: "You're in the basement because they're afraid of you, of your relentlessness, and because they know that they could drop you in the middle of the desert and tell you the truth is out there and you would ask them for a shovel."
Mulder: "Is that what you think of me?"
Scully: "Well maybe not a shovel. Maybe a back hoe."
Mulder: (going through a suspect's fridge) "Hey Scully, check this out. Mango Kiwi Tropical Swirl. Now we know we're dealing with a madman."
TSA Agent in airport: "NCIS, is that anything like CSI?"
Tony: "Only if you're dyslexic."
(Business as usual for Tony)
McGee: "Blah blah blah computer stuff. ...Blah."
Ducky: *plops a folder on his desk* "Autopsy report."
Abby: "Words. There's so many... words. And things. And stuff. And emotions! Thanks for listening."
Painter: "You know what they say. When life gives you lemons..."
Lightman: "... chuck em' at people."
Clara Musso: "There seems to be a lot of chemistry there with your ex-wife."
Lightman: "Yeah, well there's a lot of chemistry in Chernobyl."
