So, I'm still trying to get back into the hang of this "posting regularly" thing. I'm not quite sure I've mastered it yet, but hey, anything more than one post every 3 months is progress for me. :B I was actually going to post yesterday as well, but I wasn't feeling so good and also I had to work on my final for my Fairy Tales and Gender class (a retelling of The Snow Queen with lesbians, woooo). But I am done with that now (the draft, anyway), and also I'm planning to start something that will hopefully get me posting a lot more from now on! But before I can tell you that story, I have to tell you this story.

this story is the Anime Boston con report btw )

Wow that was horrendously long. Kudos to you if you read all of it. Anyway, here is that thing I was talking about that will hopefully revolutionize my posting habits (i.e., make them existent)! :D



{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


I know I don't normally do stuff like this, but I saw [livejournal.com profile] burningqueen doing it and I was inspired. :D My topic is going to be 100 of my fandoms. It would probably sound better as something like "100 fandoms I am or have been in", but I never really leave a fandom, just kind of drift away from it for a while (which is what led me to think of the topic in the first place). I'm going to be posting them in alphabetical order, and I wanted to get the first one up tonight, but we'll see how much energy I have after writing this big long post. But if this works out, prepare yourselves for a whole lot more entries from me. I think you're going to like them. c:
vethica: (Default)
They don't tell you how hard it is to get back into posting on Livejournal after month-long hiatuses (hiatūs?). They should, but they don't. And the fact that I have things like Tumblr, Gaia, Lang-8, Sims, and, of course, schoolwork to take my mind away from it doesn't help matters.

If it makes you feel any better, my life hasn't been all that interesting. I've been in school, studying basically the same things I was studying last year. I'm now a linguistics minor in addition to a Japanese major, so there's that. Also, there is the fact that I will be studying abroad in Japan next year. Which, ngl, is pretty awesome. :D

I haven't really gotten into any new fandoms either. Except ASoIaF/Game of Thrones and Gankutsuou, which both happened this summer... yeesh, it's been that long. (e: OH WAIT I FORGOT LYCHEE LIGHT CLUB wow I suck. Yeah, Lychee Light Club too. Also that reminds me to say hello to my new f!s friending meme friends [livejournal.com profile] astrokittie and [livejournal.com profile] tasogare_n_hime. Hi! c:) I haven't left any of my old fandoms either, and I just got bit bad by the Baccano! bug so if I start posting regularly on here again it will probably involve a lot of squeeing about that show. Just like old times. :D

Which I suppose is as good a segue as any. I'd originally planned to make a post a couple weeks ago to tell y'all to go vote in [livejournal.com profile] animetournament, but then I never did and by now we're down to the top 12 and my boy Jacuzzi got knocked out of the running so it's a bit late to make any exhortations to that effect. You can still vote though if you want to. :B No, the main reason for my post right now is this: who all is going to Anime Boston? Because I know some of you live around here or at least make it here for cons, and let's face it, we need to meet up. The really cool thing is I'll be cohosting a panel this year ("How Is This Con Different From All Other Cons? An Otaku Passover"), so if you want to stop by and say hi, I will be the one up there who doesn't have facial hair. Or if you just see me around the con, I'll probably be cosplaying Graham Specter all three days, and if you don't know who that is, look for the giant wrench. :B

So there is that, and also, I guess, what is going on in your lives even if you are not going to AB. I HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO END LJ POSTS
vethica: (Default)
I decided to try and come up with human names the ponies would have if they were humans and not ponies.

Twilight Sparkle: Twila Sparks (easy)
Rainbow Dash: Rain/Raine/Rainbow(? parents must have been hippies) Dashell
Pinkie Pie: Wilhelmina Diane Pine (still goes by Pinkie, because she has pink hair and likes pink and, I mean, Wilhelmina)
Applejack: Jacklyn (aka Jackie, Jack) Apple (Applebaum? Appleton? Applesomething?) Her siblings stay Macintosh and Bloom, of course.
I do not know about Rarity and Fluttershy, though in the latter's case I think her last name should be Cheyenne or something. Maybe she is part Albanian and her first name is Flutura. :|a (Thanks, behindthename!) Okay, maybe I just don't know about Rarity.

Oh, also I went to Connecticon this weekend. Quick con report maybe?

Quick con report maybe! (not actually that quick) (really long actually) )

...And, yeah, that was in fact really long actually, but that's about it. So yes. I had fun. :D And if there was anything I forgot I'll mention it in a later post.

Also I will skip the Digimon meme this post, sorry. This is never going to get posted otherwise. Next time, y'all.
vethica: (Default)
So in an awesome stroke of coincidence, my Graham wig and coveralls both arrived yesterday! This is especially awesome because the wig was being shipped from Hong Kong and wasn't scheduled to get here until tomorrow at the earliest (and the Wednesday after the con at the latest). Now I'm really glad I didn't pay for that expedited shipping. :P So now all I have to do is finish the wrench, pin the coveralls (which are way too big), and find some boots. And Connecticon is only 10 days from now! I'm excited. :D

Also, Wandering Son has supposedly finally shipped! Which... is a pretty big deal, considering I'd been waiting for it for almost six months. :| Of course, I can't celebrate just yet, seeing as I was an idiot and accidentally had it shipped to my school address instead of my home one. Luckily, I can pick it up when we're in the area this summer, but still, that was pretty dumb. Even for me. (In my defense, would you have expected it to actually ship before the end of the summer?)

On another note, Genkaku Picasso is an amazing manga. I've just finished the series (only 3 volumes!) and oh man, so good. In one chapter a yaoi fangirl learns that it's totally okay to be a yaoi fangirl, as long as you don't let your fantasies get in the way of your real life (and spoilers for the chapter )). More significantly, in another chapter there's a trans character who is judged at first, but once her classmates learn about her situation, they're totally okay with her and don't have a problem referring to her by her preferred name and gender from then on. Maybe that's on the unrealistic side, but it's always nice to see nuanced trans characters in Japanese media, and also it's really sweet. Heck, the whole series is sweet like that; it's one of those heartwarming weird-outsider-kid-ends-up-gathering-a-bunch-of-friends-who-accept-and-like-them affairs that I'm a sucker for (see: Kimi ni Todoke, 7 Billion Needles). Heartwarming wrapped up in occasional disturbing, true, but with Usamaru Furuya, really, what can you expect. :P BASICALLY YOU GUYS SHOULD READ IT okay.

I've also been playing a lot of Sims 3 lately - or at least trying to, since it turns my computer into a slow piece of crap half the time. Finally started a legacy, which is something I've been wanting to do since forever. At some point I'll have to install a mod so I can get more than 8 people in the house, which... I have no idea how to do and am somewhat worried about. @_@ But my founder and his girlfriend only just got married, so I figure there's time yet.

Now I'm going to knock out a couple days on this meme, since at the rate I've been posting I'll be lucky to finish this before school starts again. x_x No picspams today, sorry, considering the nature of the questions.

Day 12: Least favourite digital monster. )

Day 13: Least favourite character. )

Day 14: Least favourite season. )

Oh, also I have a job interview on Thursday, which is pretty cool. I doubt I'll get in, but I will try~!
vethica: (Default)
Wow, dang I missed a lot of days. I was planning on catching up on Thursday, but Anime Boston ate my entire weekend. Whoops. AB was pretty spectacular, though. I had a lot of fun. Will hopefully post a con report within the next couple weeks. :D Also Passover ends in a few hours and classes end in a few days so I am feeling pretty okay right now. Just have to get through these last couple homeworks and then finals. Yosh~

I also started watching Madoka today. Yes, finally. It is good so far, but would probably be better if I did not know so many spoilers. :( Still, I like it. The characters seem pretty cool and I love the art style and I want Madoka's house. Kyubey's voice is annoying though.

*deep breath*

DAY 09: A song that makes you hopeful. )

DAY 10: A song by your favorite band. )

DAY 11: A song on the soundtrack of your favorite movie. )

DAY 12: The last song you heard. )

DAY 13: A song that reminds you of a former friend. )

DAY 14: A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend. )
vethica: (Default)
Whoa, sorry about not updating for the past few days. On Sunday I had to catch up on all my homework that I didn't do while doing the play, and then yesterday I went home for the first night of Passover. Apparently my school has actual good Passover food, so I may starve less than usual! This is exciting. :D

The second performance went okay. We had a tougher audience and some more lines got messed up, but it was still pretty good. I just wish more people had come. :( There was, however, more concrete talk of doing this again next year, which would be so awesome. We're discussing doing As You Like It or maybe Shrew, but I'm still holding out hope for Twelfth Night. >_>

DAY 06: A song that reminds you of a best friend. )

DAY 07: A song that reminds you of the past summer. )

DAY 08: A song that reminds you of your "first love." )

And also it is getting to be about that time, so I figured I should ask you guys. Anyone else going to Anime Boston? :D
vethica: (Default)
Wow I haven't been on LJ since forever, by which I mean like a week. You know when I said I was done with my buttload of homework? I got more. =_=;; I haven't been responding to posts, or basically anything, and I'm sorry.

So! NEWW was really fun. )

Umm. I got back into Phoenix Wright: The Musical pretty recently, and I've been listening the crap out of it. It turns out that apparently it has been licensed homaguh. Like, for real, by Capcom. If there was any fan project that deserved to become official, it was this one. Congratulations to the people working on it! :B Also if any of you guys have not listened to it by now, you really should. You will like it. Some of the songs are on the website and the rest are on YouTube. :D

Also... I want to RP. Following [livejournal.com profile] rpanoncomm and having a lot of cool LJ friends who RP and a boyfriend who mods one can do things to your mind. This wouldn't be a problem if I knew how to do characterization for any character, ever. Or if I could trust myself not to idle out. =_=;;;; I've been getting back into Kingdom Hearts in a big way (mentally, anyway*) and I want to replay Days soon, so I'll probably have that floating around my brain when I do. I really don't think it will go anywhere, but... a girl can dream.

* By which I mean mostly thinking about Axel/Roxas/Xion with some Sora on the side. Hey everything is better with foursomes amirite.

And a meme! Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] wraithi.

Reply with a fandom and I'll tell you the following:
› favorite character
› least favorite character
› prettiest character
› character I wanna marry
› favorite pairing
› favorite episode/moment
› unpopular opinion


aww yeah
vethica: (Default)
Hey guise. I've had craploads of homework recently, which is why I haven't been updating for the past couple weeks. :( But now that it has let up a bit I am posting! yaaaay

Here are the latest books I've been reading. )

Halloween and troll transvestism. )

Also this weekend Yuki and I are going to New England Webcomics Weekend! (Hopefully, anyway.) Oh man look at that guest list. Andrew Hussie + Kate Beaton + Anthony Clark + Jeph Jacques + Jess Fink + ???? = !!!! If anyone else is going on Saturday I will be the one in the Gamzee shirt with the Grell glasses chain, so say hi! :D

(And you know that Shakespeare extra-credit project I was doing? The teacher just upgraded it to a regular credit project that will replace our final essay. :D :D :D Such a load off my mind I don't even. High school AU, awaaaaay~!)

</so boring>
vethica: (awesome)
Otakon report! (WARNING: LONG) )

So all in all, Otakon was pretty awesome. ^_^

Loot! )

A meme! (LESS LONG) )

I think this entry has set the record for most tags in a post on my LJ.
vethica: (Default)
Back from Otakon! Con report coming later, possibly today. I just wanted to get this out of the way first.

20. Character you wouldn’t mind having as your butler/maid )

21. Character you’d have in your party if you were in a RPG )

22. Another OTP of yours )

23. Your favorite character of the opposite gender of #1 )

ALSO! A really cool person drew a really cool companion piece to one of my pictures! And it's super good! This is basically the greatest feeling ever you guys hrnnnnngh

And while I'm down here, I should plug [livejournal.com profile] gulf_aid_now again as they're just starting their third round of auctions. I just recently got back my commission from [livejournal.com profile] merlynster (who is awesome) from last round and it is really good. You could get a good thing too!

Day 19

Jul. 28th, 2010 01:25 pm
vethica: (Default)
19. Character you’d like to go karaoke with )

This'll probably be my last post for a few days, on account of I'll be at Otakon. :D Anyone who's going, if you see a Tenho (the one in red) or Kiri Komori, odds are it's me. Say hi. :D

Day 16

Jul. 25th, 2010 02:51 pm
vethica: (Default)
16. Character you wouldn’t mind prancing naked for you )

I shouldn't have made the mistake of browsing cosplay forums the other day. Now I'm all excited for Otakon and it's still several days away. D: *tries to distract self with Finnish*
vethica: (awesome)
HEY GUISE

WHAT HAS TWO THUMBS AND IS GOING TO OTAKON

~THIS GUY~

...okay it works better if you can see me pointing to myself with my thumbs. Just imagine I am doing that okay.

Also it works better if I am a guy.

...Uh. Is anyone else going? :D
vethica: (awesome)
Flashing picture warning )

HEY GUYS

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN AS EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING AS THIS GUY IS ABOUT TAB

BECAUSE THAT IS HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT MS PAINT ADVENTURES (WHICH INCIDENTALLY HAS THE TAB GUY IN IT)

IT IS EPIC

yeah

Also I know Anime Boston was a month ago but chronological order is for chumps )

so

yeah
vethica: (Default)
Today was a lousy day. Kinda had a breakdown. I hate lousy days. x_x

At least it's almost time for Anime Boston. Maybe our costumes will even be done. *goes to plan schedule*

hot things

Mar. 25th, 2010 10:49 pm
vethica: (Default)
Tuesday's episode of Lost was very relevant to my interests. By which I mean Richard + beard + long hair + speaking Spanish = unf. Too bad we will probably never see that version of him again. Why do all the hot guys in Lost either die or shave. :(

Also, speaking of interests relevance, Grell. Just... Grell. And the other guys too in that picture but fffff. GRELL I WILL MARRY YOU OKAY.

In not incoherent fangirl news, Anime Boston's in a week. All I still have to do costume-wise is finish my pants, make my shirt, make a hair ribbon, figure out how to do my hair, get some shoes, get a non-moth-eaten blanket, get a white T-shirt that is smaller than an XL, and like get some flip-flops too or something. And find my camera. Other than that I am good right? :B

Oh wait I lied more incoherent fangirling
JCA SECRET IN F!S :D :D :D
</fangirling>

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

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

Cut for the rest. Anime Boston, Pokémon stuff. )
vethica: (Default)
First of all, LESS THAN 24 HOURS TILL AB. *hyperventilates* Although I'm not really the most excited right now 'cause I realized I spent a fair amount of time/money on my costumes and they're pretty crappy. Oh well. Costumes are done except Light's shoes, btw. On the plus side, there'll be another Death Note photoshoot on Sunday (although... it may be during Cosplay Chess), and we have a team for Hyakunin Kuizu, which I've never done before, so if we get in, that should be cool. :B

Okay, something else. I just found out that Jian Ghomeshi (formerly of Moxy Früvous (which is a good band, btw; check them out if you like Barenaked Ladies)) is such a cutie. I mean, look at the guy. He's like Zach Braff if someone injected cuteness into him. Also, you know who else famous person is attractive? Johannes Brahms. For serious. (When he was younger, anyway.) Stop being so cute, famous dead composers. :|

Also, I just found out that Ash Ketchum's name in French is Sacha. For some reason that's really cute.
vethica: (Default)
Okay, I know I have been outraged about a lot of stuff in here lately. But this one is seriously legitimate: the girl player character in HG/SS will not be the one from Crystal. I - what? Seriously? No. I dunno if it's just because she was the first girl or what, but the Crystal girl is my favorite out of every player character. They're not replacing the guy (although imo his new design is pretty terrible), so why replace her? Plus, I really, really dislike the new one's design as well. Look at those overalls. She looks like Mario! And what's with that hat? Fffffff I know I shouldn't get so worked up about something like this, but I'm really crushed here. I guess if I can't get used to her in the end I'll just play as the guy, new design notwithstanding. :\

Plus the Death Note photoshoot's been moved to 12 on Friday, so we won't be able to even catch the tail end. And Vaarsuvius from Order of the Stick stopped being hot. And I'm tired. So yeah, pretty bad times all around.
vethica: (Default)
I was going to make this part of a larger post, because I'm pretty sure no one cares, but then I realized that I had nothing else to post. So, uh, Lucas is out for AB and Tenho is in. Lucas's shirt was pretty impossible to find anyway (somehow ;A;), so this is probably for the best. I can find all Tenho's stuff on Amazon or probably in a store and he doesn't even need a wig. ~*~*~LAZY COSPLAY~*~*~

Ummm. So yeah.

EDIT: More TWEWY bidness (spoilers for Another Day?) )
