Hey guys. I know I've been dropping the ball on 100 things posting for the past few weeks, and I wanted to apologize to anyone who's been waiting eagerly for the next one (read: no one). Work's been eating my life, both my actual job and helping my dad move his stuff to his new office, and it's been creeping over onto the weekends, so I haven't had too much break time either. The bottom line is that I have been pretty burnt out and not really feeling like making posts. :( I'll hopefully get back to 100 thingsing in the next few days (maybe even tonight!), but to make up for it somewhat I'm going to talk about some miscellaneous things that I'd normally be posting about in the first place. :B

- I know this has been covered over and over in every corner of the internet, but the Korra finale was a thing that happened. And, well. It really was a hot mess. A couple spoilery gripes. ) Does anyone know where I can find fic of those two (preferably involving erotically applied bloodbending), btw? With each other or teaming up on a third party, either is good. :B

- Okay enough about Korra, let's talk about another cartoon show I've been watching! I've been watching Bleach ever since Toonami came back, and holy wow do I love the zanpakutou arc. I missed most of the part where the actual plot happens, but the episodes afterward with the Soul Reapers and their zanpakutous just hanging out have been the cutest things. I especially cannot express my love for Zabimaru's episode, and for Snake in particular. I would watch Bleach so hard if it were just the Snake and Karin show. why do I ship a pairing from a filler episode this hard idk no regrets. ♥

- I've also been watching some other shows on Toonami but those are topics for another post I think. :B

- Okay now it is time for the big exciting part of the post! First, some background: [ profile] soltian, who is an amazing person and artist, has been having some financial trouble lately, so I went to her store to see if I could buy anything to help her out. It was at about this point that I noticed she was selling CUSTOM DAKIMAKURA CASES. *____* So. I bought one. And now I am just waiting for her to begin working on it and I am so excited hjbvhbsjsfhbjfhj you don't even know. Especially after she posted the Thor and Loki dakimakuras she just finished. *_______* It looks like she just got some new ones in stock, so if you want anything from custom dakimakura cases to prints for $7, you should definitely check her store out! I know she'd appreciate it. :D (And no, I'm not telling you who the case I commissioned is of yet. I'm saving that one till I can show you the final product. c:)

- And finally, I know it's a little late, but happy Fourth of July, Americans on my flist! :D

Probably. I don't remember.

Saw Chicago (the movie) the other day. I knew I'd been missing out by not having seen it before. Amazing, amazing movie. I love the decision to have the songs all be dream sequences - it allows for some awesome elaborate staging, and the songs themselves have this hypnotic quality that fits with that and with the whole unsettling feel of it. Basically, really good movie. Also Queen Latifah is hot, my god. *straight, really*

Now it's time for me to make some observations I've picked up recently about characters and Japanese pronouns.
- these got long )
- And the thing that inspired me to look up a few of these was the Homestuck Japanese translation project. Sooooo coooool man. It's not very far along yet, but check out the character pages to see how their pronouns and typing quirks are being translated. A couple highlights: each of the kids uses a different one of the four basic pronouns; Terezi's 413 thing translates perfectly due to the Japanese love of numerical wordplay (and her laugh becomes 1111, or "hihihihi"); and Nepeta calls herself "Nepeta-chan", which is adorable. Seriously, check it out. :D

One day I will make a list of every character in my favorite Japanese media and the pronouns they all use. :|a

Day 15: A character you’d be best friends with. )

Day 16: A character you would not get along with. )

No picspams today either. :( Too many characters, sorry. Not sure how I would go about it. Though if you have an idea you can let me know.

Four days till Connecticon!

So it is a new year or something. :B To celebrate I have been sick. It's been... not fun. :( Well, supposedly I should be getting better soon. In the meantime, hanging out with my awesome friends is distracting me. Hi awesome friends!

So um. I guess this is what I miss when I stop paying attention to Bleach for months:


Of course, he doesn't stay back for very long ;_;. I did, however, make this icon in commemoration. Sadly, I don't have icon space, but you guys can use it if the fancy strikes you.

Also, as a result of keeping putting it off, I didn't end up applying to that RP before it opened. And it turns out that they closed the apps after opening. Looks like my experiment with RP was a failure. :( I know I would have probably idled out anyway, but it still hurts to think about what I missed out on being part of.

I might have been going to say something else, but I think it was just more whining so I'll end here. Hope you all are having a good year so far! :B

Characters meme, part 2! This time from [ profile] cykotyks, who went the Bleach route.

Matsumoto, Unohana, and Hanatarou )

You guys can still feel free to request ones or whatever.

So, an update on this whole thing with me and wanting to RP. I came across this game called [ profile] cluster_fsk last week, and it looked like somewhere I could actually play at! All OCs (so I don't have to worry as much about characterization), small, and pretty casual. So I went ahead and made my first RP account ever: [ profile] stellacious. I've been nervously tagging around [ profile] dear_mun over the past few days, and once I feel comfortable with it I'll probably app to cluster_fsk. So, nervous, excited. Mostly nervous.

Hey why not have another meme that is going around.


1) Make an entry with the filled out form
2) Have your f-list describe in the comments how they pronounce your username, what they originally thought it said/meant

✩ vethica


Way back before I had an established internet identity, one day I needed a username to join the PPT forums under. So I came up with Vethica. I tried out a couple others since then, but this is the one that stuck. No idea where the actual name came from, though - I make up names sometimes, and I guess this was one of them.

Etymology: ?????

I think this entry has set the record for most tags in a post on my LJ.

13. Character you’d go camping with )

I am loving the fact that the English release of Bleach changed Fornicarás' name. It's not even in English in the first place. No one is going to care. :P Also it is very sad about scanlation sites dying. ;_;
vethica: (awesome)
I suppose I should do some kind of year-end post. All the cool kids are doing it. Um, I liked 2009 a lot. It was probably one of my favorite years that happened to me. So let's hope 2010 will be even better! :D

Fandom year-end meme )

And of course I start watching Bleach again the week after the last Szayel episode before the filler arc. :| I watched it anyway, but mainly for Halibel and her hot Fracción. Mira Rose's voice is a thing of beauty. *_* Now, off to find the Szayel episodes on YouTube.

Yes, I know it's "Mila Rose". It's also "Harribel". (And "Sanderwicci".) Don't make me give up on my dreams, okay? D:

Also, I didn't think it was possible, but I may have found a Disney dub to rival Norwegian Tarzan: European Spanish Nightmare Before Christmas. I am seriously considering buying this CD. I haven't even seen the whole thing in English yet. :|

While we're on the subject, had an incredibly trippy Kingdom Hearts dream last night. I really need to lay off that game for a while.

I was tagged for this meme like a month ago and then I forgot about it, I am so sorry .___.;;

Respond to this post with "JEFF" and I will give you five questions to get to know you better. Repost and answer them in your journal. Pass it on, etc.
Questions y'all )
Hopefully I will not take another month to get back to you guys. But I might! :D

Also. Here is another meme I ganked from [ profile] ibbsc. Because I am cool like that.
You are in this meme. Yes, you. )

And you know what, let's just throw in another meme for the heck of it.


vethica: (Default)




On the bright side, the voices are perfect, especially Dondochakka's. Well, I'm still not in love with Grimmjow's, or the fact that his name is pronounced "Greemjow", and Nel's voice sounds a little too old for her, but whatever. At least we finally got to hear Szayel, whose voice I am going to marry, kthx. :B

Apparently I have some internet on this vacation. I must use these powers for good!

...And by good I apparently mean whining about Shonen Jump. Eh, close enough.

So, SPHFWLKaiB finally showed up in Bleach. You can probably imagine my reaction. But. Butbutbut. They spelled his name as one word - Szayelaporro, like that. I know that's probably closer to the original, and since the speech bubbles are so narrow it shows up as hyphenated anyway, which is almost like two words. So I really have no reason to be upset about this. But idk, man, I just think it looks dumb. Some other spellings they have that bug me are "Nnoitora" (I know it's not that different, but still) and (are you ready for this one?) "Cirucci Sanderwicci". Sanderwicci? What is she, a BLT? Dude, "Thunderwitch" is possibly the coolest last name ever. You can't screw that up. D: You know what, I think I am just going to be one of those people I hate who ignores canon and spells people's names however she darn well pleases. Like heck I'm giving up "Thunderwitch".

While I'm here, I suppose I should say something briefly about the other mangas in Shonen Jump. Because I can.

Naruto: I really like how Naruto calls Yondaime "Pa". They could have gone with "Dad" so easily, but I like "Pa" better. It gives him character. And it's cute. Pain was a cute kid.

One Piece: Nami/Vivi is so canon. Mr. 2 Bon-chan is amazing.

Ultimo: O.A. must love this series. There is no way Jealousy is a boy.

Yu Yu Hakusho: Natsume is surprisingly attractive. I like seeing all those people from forever ago.

Tegami Bachi: I would probably like this series better if the people didn't have such stupid names. Two words: Jiggy Pepper. Niche makes it worth reading, though. She's great. Also I like the term "Letter Bee". Reminds me of Smellerbee. Or Linda Ellerbee.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: I don't care.

Also I am going to see Wicked tonight yay.

It's recently come to my attention what an embarrassing percentage of my thoughts is spent on attractive fictional-type guys. Which maaay not be the best thing to write about now that I have an attractive real-type boyfriend who reads this thing. So, uh, let's see what else is floating around in my head.

Okay, how about some brief thoughts on Bleach 224? So brief they don't even warrant a cut. )

Stuff got long, so have cuts for the rest too. This one is about Bleach also. )

Hetalia shipping? In my TMBG? )

Aaand more Disgaea. ) Yeah, so I once again exhort you guys to play Disgaea. It even makes leveling fun. Plaaay iiit.

I've had a lot of stuff to post and it was too much to post in one post so this post will only post part of it. And yes, I am trying to set a world record for the number of times saying "post" in one sentence. And the number of tags on this post.

First, a meme stolen from HG:

Make a list of 10 fandoms you are in/things you like and then have your friends list guess who you think is the most attractive/would date/sleep with/etc. Cross them off as they're guessed.

1. Bleach Szayel ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
2. Kuroshitsuji Grell ([ profile] alex_romao)
3. Lost
4. Hetalia
5. Nolanverse Batman
6. Sandman Dream ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
7. Phoenix Wright Jake Marshall ([ profile] alex_romao)
8. US presidents
9. Yu Yu Hakusho Kurama ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
10. Star Wars Obi-Wan (Episode II) ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)

And, like HG's, most of these'll be super easy. ~*~so predictable~*~

Cut for the rest. Anime Boston, Pokémon stuff. )

I am probably more excited than I should be that my limited knowledge of Japanese is now at the point where I can mangle certain YouTube Poop lines. ここに 地図が あります。どこに いきたいですか?FEAR IT, YO.

Have a meme I got from a place.
Pick six of your favorite fandoms and answer the questions (don't look at the questions before you choose the fandoms). For "favorite" read "current".

1. Bleach
2. Hetalia
3. The World Ends With You
4. Sandman
5. Lost
6. Kuroshitsuji

I bet you're really curious to see what happens. (Warning: contains fangirling.) )
vethica: (Default)
I beat TWEWY (the first playthrough, anyway). Just throwing that out there. Also everyone should get that game. It's good and awesome. Maybe a little short, but good and awesome.

(also ffff the soundtrack is on iTunes? Must acquire 10 dollars... *flat broke*)


(stolen from Sempai)
-Pick up to 10 OTPs.
-Describe them in less than 15 words.
-Have your flist guess the OTP.

Oh, man. This was a terrible week for homework. And sleep. The most sleep I got was six hours. And it doesn't look like this weekend will be much better. A long weekend and everything. D: D: D:

But somewhere in the middle of all this madness I did get to watch the first episode of the Ouran dub (yes, late Vethie is late orz). Now, normally I don't have quite as high standards for dubs as some people do, but even still I was very impressed. Holy crap this review is long. )

And speaking of dubs... (ALSO KOREA WHAT) )
vethica: (Default)
The reason I haven't been posting for a while is because I didn't want to post until I did that meme... and then... I didn't do that meme ._.;;; I WILL DO IT EVENTUALLY HONESTLY SOME OF THOSE QUESTIONS ARE HARD

Basically, I just... Bleach 200 came out the other day and... how wrong is it that I find Szayel's begging/pleading while he's waiting to die completely hot? Especially the "hayaku hayaku hayaku" bit. (Refer to this video if necessary.) Seriously? The guy's been waiting an infinite number of centuries to finally get stabbed in the heart, he's begging to hurry up and die already and all I can think is "man, that's hot?" That's just... messed up.

I just wish I knew what Mayuri was saying to him afterwards. From my limited knowledge of Japanese, I've gathered it's something about having multiple slow-motion sexy makeouts, but I could be wrong. ^^;;

... Is that blue stuff his hair?

Okay, let's talk about something else. So the other day I thought finally logging onto Gaia after a year and a half would be fun. It was not. It was lonely, mainly because I only have one friend who goes on anymore. I know some of you guys used to be on there - any lapsed Gaians willing to start up again? It'll be an ~*~adventure~*~!

Also I got Animal Crossing: City Folk, someone Wi-Fi with me sometime.

P.S. Happy (belated?) winter holiday ^_^
