Is that your ghost or are you really there? )

a/n: Man, I suck. I was supposed to work on Trying, but I got um…. sidetracked? Whatever, I’ve been playing around with an idea like this for a while now. I was planning on making a one-shot Harold/Rhonda set in my Darkverse. Instead, I think this is going to be a 3-5 chapter fic that’s Harold/Rhonda in the Darkverse, but with an emphasis on Rhonda and love and death and love/life after death and teamwork and sex and distant hopes and just… whatever I think fits in, basically.

I will go back to Trying soon! Like, I’m not going to try and finish this first or anything silly like that.

Also, the timeline of this is gonna be weird. Next chapter is gonna be what was happening two years ago. And the one following that should be from the present. At least in theory.

I actually didn't plan for Harold to be dead when I started this. It just sort of happened that way. :(

Fandom: Hey Arnold!
Character(s): Rhonda, Harold

So tired... )

a/n: I don't really know why I've been all Rhonda/Harold happy lately. I just love them.

I've also been meaning to put up a journal on DA about my thoughts on Rhonda/Harold-Eugene/Curly-Curly/Rhonda-Patty/Harold. For funsies.

Also, I once had someone basically say to me that Harold/Rhonda was gross because Harold was gross and didn't deserve her and it was the worst ever, because I love Harold SO MUCH and so it was pretty much the most worthless conversation ever. Also Harold being fat was brought into the discussion and I wanted to e-punch someone, because FAT PEOPLE EXIST AND DESERVE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED JUST AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE DOI! Beh.

I dunno, I just really relate to Harold on some level. I mean, I'm not really like him all that much, but there's some core part of his character that gets to me. It's got something to do with how he's cowardly and stupid and fat and he fucks up a lot, but he almost always comes through in the end. And when he does something wrong and knows it he usually feels SO GUILTY and just... he's big and dumb and sometimes a bully, but he's a good person.

Anyway, I love him.

You know the lies they always told you and the love you never knew... )

a/n: Also! I kind of want to do like a practice comic to see if I'll really be able to help out with the Hey Arnold!: Sixth Season Project. Basically this is a call for anyone who would be up to writing some sort of Hey Arnold! drabble/small dialogue to post it in a comment below and it might end up in comic format so that's kind of neat. No one has to, of course, but if you think it'd be neat to see something you wrote maybe become a comic then go ahead and write away.

a/n: Fun! Also, I don't write drabbles. It is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE for me to write drabbles. Or something. That Curly/Eugene one? 800+ words more than a drabble should be! :(

Also, OMG NEW ICONS/MOOD THEME. I love them all so much. My mood theme is ANIMATED SOUL EATER MOODS FUCK YEAH. Seriously, fucking awesome show/manga (I've read through all the manga, but have so far only seen the first episode of the anime, but SO PRETTY OMG). Death the Kid is totally my favorite and it's so obvious that he would be, because he is obsessed with SYMMETRY and IS A BADASS and HAS MAN RINGS XLKJLFKJDSLKFJSDLFKSJFLSDFJL. The mood set does not have enough Tsubaki though. I love her. SO MUCH.

Uh, anyway. You can still request drabbles and do all the other meme things if'n you want. They're in the last post. Oh, but don't request Soul Eater drabbles yet because I would fail so bad at them. I would.

Episode: The Journal

Notes: Okay, so if you're reading Trying you might be noticing that there seem to be a lot of clues and things referencing an episode of Hey Arnold! that you never got to see. That's okay! I am here with a picspam from the Journal that will basically cover the episode's basics (plus some things that I thought were just funny or cute). Hopefully you find this useful!

The pictures are rather low quality, but I did the best I could. )

a/n: So what happens next?

We still don't know. Some shit went down between Nick and Craig Bartlett (the creator of HA!) and they pulled the plug on the whole thing. We were supposed to get a movie about Arnold going off to find them, but so far it's a no go. So the series ends on the BIGGEST CLIFFHANGER EVER.

a/n: Those like first three mini flashbacks? Yeah, he doesn't tell her those - they're just his own vague thoughts as he tries to pull the story together. I don't think I made that all too clear.

LOL, did you like my little Strangetown reference? An asshole named Buzz. It's not a super obvious connection or anything, but I needed a name for the guy and that's what sprang to mind.

Haha, got questions? ASK AWAY. I know the flashback stuff was a little bit vague in some parts. I can't promise I'll answer everything, but don't be afraid to ask anyway!

Also, WOLFGANG! I have a really weird affection for him. And if you're worried that he's being too nice here - don't worry! He's still kind of a dick. You'll see. XD

a/n: I'm actually done with Chapter Seven of Trying. Y'see I do this crazy thing where I don't write for like ever and then one day I sit down and spout out OVER 5000 WORDS in the course of two days. *cries*

Seriously, I have like no sense of pacing.

I probably won't post the next Chapter for another day or so to make it feel like I have a nifty little buffer. I also don't think I'll be writing too much for a little bit. Break time again!

a/n: I LIED. I said you'd get answers in this chapter. YOU DON'T. Aren't I the worst?

On the upside (or downside depending on the kind of person you are) the next chapter is probably going to be completely full of flashbacks! We shall relive the experience right there with Arnold. Huzzah!

Oh god, you don't know how badly I want to go through each and everyone of these chapters and point all the ridiculous canon throwbacks and symbolism, because I keep doing adding them! I DON'T EVEN TRY TO.

Also, I told you they'd changed. This story is mostly about them finding themselves again. Also, ADVENTURE! Seriously, there's so many awesome things that I've got planned for this story. I keep sort of going 'round in circles about some of the plottier details though. I'll figure it out soon though.

Oh and here's a little reference thing mostly for myself, but you guys might enjoy it too. What's in Helga and Arnold's pockets?!


- $20 bill (gone now)
- Gum
- Cellphone
- Chapstick
- Beeper (on her belt - perks of being big bob's daughter)
- 2 pens
- Small notebook for taking orders

ETA: - A flier for Rhonda's party


- Pocket Knife type thing (has a screwdriver, a knife and maybe something else small, but useful?)
- Driver's License (expired)
- One 20 dollar bill, one 10 and three 5's ($45 total)
- Pocket watch (his grandpa's (The Sewer King))
- Journal (he has big side pockets and he'll eventually stick the journal in one of them)

ETA: - A flier for Rhonda's party and a small newspaper clipping

Hey everyone, I go on break tomorrow so my internet access will be limited for about a week. We have it at home, but I'll probably be busy with other things (i hope so at least - though neither of my BFFs are off...). But there definitely won't be fic/art for a week (i think, lol). Haha, it really doesn't sound like I'm going to gone that much, huh? Well, if I seem to be scarce next week that's why. But if it seems like business as usual, then okay too.

Anyway, some art and junk under here! )

a/n: I'm also totally planning to eventually do a post explaining what we know about La Corazon/the Journal/La Sombra in order to help people who haven't seen The Journal understand things a little better.

Also, [ profile] poisonivory hooked me up with Look Up and the Haunted Train mp3s recently and they are AWESOME. Look Up is so much fun. And now you can listen too!

Also, I'm totally dancing around on the Beau/Franny side of things these days, but I wanted to see if this one technique worked on the sims pics and I had that cap available so that's why there's one random Tank/Frances icon. XD

ETA: Okay, this is going to probably sound really random to most of you, but do you guys know what Fausnaughts are? Without looking them up that is.

Because I TOTALLY just realized that it must be a PA Dutch thing. D: But still - HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW WHAT FAUSNAUGHTS ARE?

Chapters: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

In which Helga receives an invitation and Arnold runs into some trouble... )

a/n: Hee, hopefully there's some nice surprises in this chapter. Yes, we are going to get to see quite a few of the old gang. None of them are terribly plot important, but they'll be helping out a lot.

And La Corazon! <33333 Yes I am totally writing a TJM-ish story at a totally non-TJM time. Or well, TJM happened in this story, but Arnold didn't find ANYTHING. No evidence that his parents are alive or dead or had ever existed at all. And this is sort of the end result of that. It's an Arnold who lost his hope and a Helga who got her life stuck in Arnold's leaving. They're both very stunted emotionally. Arnold gave up on a lot of things and Helga hasn't really formed her own identity. But they'll get there!

And the next chapter includes some answers! They're on a road trip after all - time for Arnold to explain some things.

The urban legend was totally spur of the moment and basically added because of this.

Little bit weaker than you used to be. )

notes: Helga in my own sort of style and looking purty and older and a fun Phi drawing? Ugh, I know they are not very interesting. :(

I drew you guys something now give me love. I'm like seriously stressed out about the stupidest thing right now and I'm making myself sick and it's so dumb and argh. Seriously, gimme crazy comments, half-assed fic, silly pictures of your toes - ANYTHING. I just want to stop being a miserable grump.

warning: this post is extremely image heavy (80+ caps)

You tell me that you love me, but you never want to see me again. )

notes: Once again, all of these images are fine to use for any sort of icons/graphics/etc. This isn't as funny as the last one, because this is all the gushy emotional stuff and I COULD NOT MOCK THAT.

I hope you enjoy it!

Also, this is the song that I used for the song lyrics in each LJ-cut:

warning: this post is extremely image heavy (70+ caps).

I see you, you see me - differently. )

notes: Once again, all of these images are fine to use for any sort of icons/graphics/etc. I ended up taking WAY too many caps for the second half of this episode, so I split it into two different parts. There's a lot of similar shots, but no complete duplicates. I just really loved a lot of the faces that they pull throughout this episode - Helga's the best at making hilarious faces.
