Alrighty, well I've gots a new fic in the works. It's on its last few chapters and has already been sent to my beta. Anyways, I just wanted to post this to tell what it's about, really. Cause I'm excited about getting it started. It's different, I think, but I'm hoping it will get positvie reactions whenever I start to post it for real.

The idea for my new fic
 
Well, that's about it. We'll see.

Goodnight :)

Okay, so obviously, Robert Downey Jr. has made probably the biggest come back I have ever witnessed and has exploded back on the scene, better than ever. Being the fangirl that I am, I have definitely become... infatuated with this man, but there's a lot more to it. I think that, in addition to overcoming all that he has, he did it all in the spotlight and yet here he is now, back on top after having fell as hard as he did. And he jokes about it. I don't know, I just have so much respect for him. And it's been a long time coming.

The first time I ever saw him (or took notice of him) was in my theatre class when we watched "Chaplin." Being the threatre geek that I am, and given the amazing performance he gave, I fell in love with him. It didn't hurt that he was such a cutie, but it all came down to how much he impressed me. Chaplin's shoes are extremely hard to fill, and Downey Jr. nailed it. I was amazed. Then, years later, he's filling more shoes that are not only hard to fill, but ones that I never would have thought him to wear perfectly. And now that I've seen "Iron Man," I am thoroughly convinced that no one could have done a better job. Downey Jr. became Tony Stark. And I've never been one for comic books and the like. In fact, I'd never even heard of Iron Man up until this movie, and he is now my favorite super hero. 

Anyway, I just wanted to post this in admiration of a truly remarkable man in so many different ways. And yeah, he's made so many mistakes, but when it comes down to it, it's all about what you do with those mistakes. And he's done wonders. Having spent years trying to help a family member through drug addictions, including cocaine, I know it's a terribly difficult struggle, and like I said, RDJ did it all in the limelight. 

Definitely one of the best actors of his time, I cannot wait to see where all he takes us.

Okay, so this will be my first post on livejournal... 

Recently (March 24, 2008, to be exact) the world lost one of the good ones when Arjun Good was killed in a car accident. He was 16 years old, almost 17 (May 6) and probably one of the best role models out there. He went to a College Prep highschool and was in the toughest program around and got good grades, he was an outstanding athelete, good-looking, and one of the nicest people you'd ever find. And I truly mean that. Which is saying something because he had everything it took to be a stereotypical pretty-boy jock. But he so wasn't. 

He always found a reason to smile, even when no one else could find one. He had a way of making you feel so important and so loved whenever you were with him, even if you had just met him. All he had to do was smile, and you suddenly felt happy. And even if he wasn't having a great day, he would still do all he could to make the people around him happy. Honestly... he was so close to perfection. 

I loved having him in my life, although it was only for a short time. So, in memory of him, my mom made this video and... just take a look if you can and remember how short life is and how this young man, in his very short life, managed to touch the heart of everyone he met, and how he was able to make everyone so happy just through his radian smile.  

In Loving Memory of Arjun "Jawa" Good
