I know I don't need to apologize for the unexplained week-long breaks from 100 things posting, but I'm sorry anyway. I've had finals for the past week or so, and then the past two days I couldn't get myself back into the swing of writing the next one. Hopefully I'll be motivated enough to get it up tonight (that's what she said), but in the meantime, have this post as a short breather. :B Also, this is a good opportunity to say hi to [livejournal.com profile] captainporridge, fellow Ladd/Claire shipper and also a cool person, from the regrettably tiny Baccano! friending meme. Hey there, Cap! :B

While I'm here, a brief update on two new fandom things, which both start with A and as such are regrettably ineligible for retroactive addition to my 100 things. The first is Assassins, which Yuki and I got the chance to see a production of on Thursday. Yes, okay, we'd both been huge fans of the songs already, but this was the first time either of us had seen it performed and it was awesome and amazing and nearly-perfect, hnnnng. The only actors I had a problem with were the Balladeer/Oswald and (partially) Zangara. Everyone else was excellent; major props to Booth, Guiteau and the Proprietor especially. And I now feel qualified to consider it a fandom because of all the shipping I came out of it doing. I realize I am probably going to Hell for all this, but dang it, there was so much touching among them! And I am a sucker for crossover pairings, and even though they all appear in the same work they are from different parts of history and never met so it counts. Booth/Oswald OTP man. ;___; Still, this is the only thing I can think of where I actually feel uncomfortable shipping from it. Doesn't stop me, obviously, but still. Thanks, Mr. Sondheim. I think.

Okay yes I said there were two things. The second is Avengers, which I saw with my dad today. Not going to say too much about this one because spoilers, but it was definitely an awesome movie. Perfect dialogue (Joss Whedon ilu ♥), action scenes that actually drew me in (I'm normally pretty indifferent on them), and Loki being a serious cutie. That hair, unf. Ships in that one were Tony/Bruce and Thor/Loki (it is okay because gods are all up ons the whole incest thing). HG also suggested Steve/Thor, ship name: Captain Hammer. I'm down. c:

Okay, that is basically all I have to talk about now because my life is boring. But in case I do not write the next 100 things post tonight, or even if I do, I leave you with this meme that I stole from [livejournal.com profile] mireia_antonina: Give me a fandom/pairing/character... ) Go for it. :D
vethica: (Default)
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:

"Canada tops, but America can't see him. He just thinks there's a bear floating above him while he feels things in the butt." - [livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64

Since HG's been getting after me to post that quote up there, I guess I might as well make an actual post. So, sorry for up and disappearing for a week like that. Finals pretty much took over my life, which I gather is a thing that happens to a lot of people, but it is still something I should apologize for. But anyway, they are over now. Turned in the last one, in true me fashion, three minutes before the 11:55 due date. :B

So I've been home for a couple days. Haven't done too much except go to club, see Yuki, and play Pokémon TCG. I've finally built (with some help, of course ♥) a deck that actually has a strategy behind it and that I can actually win with. :O The only problem is there's never anyone on Lackey who plays, so if any of you guys are into the Pokémon TCG, let me know! I need new battle partners. :B

Also, I realize this should be common sense, but if you have a Mac, do not get the trackpad wet. Seriously. I got mine wet the other day and it spazzed out at me intermittently for like an hour. And if you do happen to get it wet, the option to disable it is under System Preferences > Universal Access, not System Preferences > Trackpad. :|

Better finish up that song meme.

DAY 22: A song that someone has sung to you. )

DAY 23: A song that you cannot stand to listen to. )

DAY 24: A song that you have danced to with your best friend. )

DAY 25: A song you could listen to all day without getting tired. )

Well, we can all see how well that worked at getting me to post every day. So now I will start another one~! Yeah, yeah, I know, but hopefully without school I'll actually be able to keep up with it this time. Besides, I need to convince [livejournal.com profile] birdboy2000 to do it. So here everyone, have a Digimon meme! :D

Day 01: How old were you when you first discovered Digimon? )
(List of days is here.)

Also, expect an AB con report to come... sometime. Whenever I can actually get myself to do anything. :(

Saw two awesome movies in the past few days. The first was Summer Wars, which was amazing and touching (I actually cried, which... doesn't happen often). Despite what people say, it really isn't all that similar to Our War Game, apart from the ideas of a rogue AI and impending missiles. It came off as more of a homage than anything. I'm actually planning to get the DVD (and I don't own many DVDs either), if only to see how the dub came out. In conclusion, watch this movie. :B

The second was Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which I've been meaning to watch for forever. It turned out to be another one of those that I should have seen back when it came out, because I found myself being very fond of it. The characters! ♥ I found I could ignore the plot holes, but I did come out thinking that it should have been longer for the sake of character development. If we got to see more of the characters' interactions and growing friendships, I think it would have been a lot more powerful. And Milo should have totally gotten with Audrey. (Also, yeah, huge crush on Milo. He's not the trope picture for Adorkable for nothing. A socially awkward linguist with the voice of Marty McFly, come on, that's not fair.)


Also this meme's been kicking around the flist.

You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out. :)


My answers are here! )

FEEL FREE TO ASK FOR CLARIFICATION OR WHATEVER


Also! If any of you guys have an OC that you want icons of, [livejournal.com profile] djinni is doing an icon day again. The art's really cute and tipping is completely optional - and despite the fact that most people request animals, he draws humans just fine too. It closes tomorrow, so if you want to request, do it soon! :D
vethica: (italy bff)
Things that have made me ridiculously happy in the past 24 (more or less) hours:
- Hetalia Day 2009 with my dork friends
- Seeing the Astro Boy movie immediately afterward with said dork friends
- Szayel's dub voice fffffff
- The answer to the New York Times acrostic (if you've done it you'll know why)

Also, I have been playing Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia a whole lot lately. (And I still have to actually pay Momo for it at some point. ._.;;) I really like this game. It's not a "true" Pokémon game, sure, but it's gotten me to care about the storyline and characters more than any other Pokémon game's done. And the writing is hilarious. If any Pokémon fans out there are looking for something to occupy themselves while waiting for HG/SS, you could really do a lot worse.

Still don't have anything to post. I was going to craft a humorous writeup of our group's first D&D session a week ago, but then I remembered that I can't write. So the condensed version is, we had a cleric with no common sense (who ended up being the party's tank), a wizard who didn't know anything, a bard with terrible social skills (though at least she could find north), and a monk who didn't really do much of anything. And a DM who had to put up with our stupidity. Also we were fighting Missingno cultists. Which is kind of awesome.

Also, lol forever @ this question.

The rest of this entry is just going to be personality quizzes. )

Why do I not have a life.
vethica: (Default)
...So I haven't posted in two weeks, which is approximately forever in internet time. Sorry 'bout that. Homework's a butt. -_-;;

Obligatory leading-up-to-Anime Boston checklist )

...I think that's it. :D

On a related note: THREE DAYS *spaz*

For those of you who found yourselves wanting more after reading the Deathly Hallows epilogue and haven't found it: I've found an interview with Jo that explains a lot, including stuff from earlier books. [livejournal.com profile] littleyuzu, she of [livejournal.com profile] theofficepuffs, recapped it here, and there's also a link to the interview itself. Figured I'd put that out there.

In other news, the Hare Hare Yukai dancers for this year's talent show have been finalized: Raven, Usa-chan, HG, O.A., and myself as Haruhi, Yuki, Mikuru, Kyon, and Itsuki, respectively. So yeah, some crossplay (both kinds), some stuff, it's all cool. If anyone is around around March or whatever you may want to check it out. Of course, that's assuming I can learn the dance by then. :P

(Also, Tyma? I guess you were right. D:)
vethica: (Default)
yay.

(stoled from HG)

  • Messed with Photoshop

  • Did stuff with friends ^_^

  • Beat that part in my Yu-Gi-Oh! game I've been working on for months

  • Went to HG's party (and watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show for the first time)

  • Went to the library

  • Watched a bunch more of Digimon 01 subbed

  • Am going to see A Midsummer Night's Dream this afternoon

I'm fairly satisfied.

The Revenge of the Sith novelization is so Ani/Obi subtexty. "Obi-Wan opened his eyes to find himself staring at what he strongly suspected was Anakin's butt." ^_^ Also, I've been rereading Ah! My Goddess, and I only just got the "K1" thing. K-"ichi". I'm so unobservant. :P

New icon! Thank'ee Tyma! (Oh, come on. Don't tell me you've never thought it.) Tyma and I went trick-or-treating last night and it was fun. ^_^

Happy All Hallow's Day (not to be confused with Happy Hallow-Day), and to those of you who're NaNoing, good luck! And a happy 45th yesterbirthday to PJ.

So this movie Flushed Away that's coming out on Friday that HG's got me all excited about? It features (are you ready for this?) Sir Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, AND Bill Nighy. Now I really need to see it.

Oh, and is it me, or would Haseo from .hack//ROOTS, if he dyed his hair, be Sasuke?

Btw, I am currently in the magical land known as "vacation". So in case anyone wants to send me a letter or something. You can't. Hahah.

Star Wars meme )

Yesterday, after much deliberation, my family decided that Captain Jack Sparrow would pop out at us on the Indiana Jones ride, singing "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah." This, much to our disappointment, did not happen. Speaking of Captain Jack, I seem to have developed a disquieting interest in the [INSERT APPROPRIATE ADJECTIVE THAT IS ALLITERATIVE WITH THE FOLLOWING WORD] [INSERT SYNONYM FOR "PIRATE"]. For all our sakes, I hope this is simply fleeting.

The day before yesterday, we went to see Othello. You know, the Shakespeare play? Anyway, our Iago (the bad guy) seemed to be very, um, "hands-on" with the other characters, especially Roderigo. And the thing at the end with the chain? Hmm. ;) Also, no one ever seemed to call Othello "Othello"; it was always "Moor" (even when it was "noble Moor"). No one ever said, "Whassup, Othello?" They always said "Whassup, Moor?" Actually, they didn't even say that, becasue the word "Whassup" hadn't been invented yet. But still. Grr.

The night before the day before yesterday, I had a dream (vacation seams to be conducive to weird dreams; I've had one every night since we got here, including one where I met "Weird Al" Yankovic and one where it was snowing (I'm still in the Northern hemisphere, so.)) that HG was having a party (at my house, for some reason) and I was Kabuto (for some reason) and so I was annoying all of my friends who don't like him. On purpose. >:)

Also, one night I was really bored (you know that spells trouble) and so I decided to cast Naruto characters in The Ultimate Showdown. (I WAS REALLY REALLY BORED, OKAY? T_T) Here's what I came up with (in order of appearance):

Godzilla = Naruto (because Naruto would love to stomp around and smash stuff)
Batman = Shino (he's got that mysterious vibe going on, and those sunglasses are clearly to hide his secret identity)
Shaq = Neji (well, he is the second tallest, and I couldn't use Lee for resons you'll see later)
Aaron Carter = Sasuke (a pretty-boy with hundreds of swooning fans? Huh, I wonder)
The Batmobile = Kabuto (he's a car! hehe!)
Abraham Lincoln = Ino (picture Ino with a fake beard! IT'D BE AWESOME!)
Optimus Prime = Kankurou (I...don't...know)
Jackie Chan = Lee (DUH.)
Indiana Jones = Kiba (he's got that kind of rugged, Harrison Ford air about him; other than that, I haven't a clue)
Care Bear = Sakura (I DON'T KNOW T_T)
Chuck Norris = Gaara (because Gaara is just the awesomest)
Mr. Rogers = Shikamaru (wth? I DON'T KNOW!)

I was going to cast Gandalf the Grey, Gandaf the White, Monty Python and the Holy Grail's Black Knight, Benito Mussolini, the Blue Meanie, Cowboy Curtis, Jambi the Genie, Robocop, the Terminator, Captain Kirk, Darth Vader, Lo Pan, Superman, every single Power Ranger, Bill S. Preston, Theodore Logan, Spock, the Rock, Doc Ock, and Hulk Hogan, but I ran out of people. Any suggestions?

Tyma: The "I mean boss, I mean poobah!" quote was from the karate (or should I say, karatay!) episode of Sponge Bob. Also, are you an Obi/Qui shipper?

Film review next post. If I finish it.

OMG 40th post! And you know what that means! Well, actually, it doesn't mean anything. But I'm going to do another quiz post because I feel like it.

Loose end, loose end cut cut )

Yeah, it started out as being just Danny Phantom quizzes, but I couldn't find enough of those. ^^;;

Oh, and I also got a deviantART account, but don't bother checking it out - it's got nothing on it since my STUPID COMPUTER won't let me upload any of my pictures. *glowers*

EDIT: I had to post this meme (stolen from Lynx).

that [CENSORED] [livejournal.com profile] enders_girl gone and said that they saw me talking to [livejournal.com profile] kazekageshad and talking crap about [livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64. Don't let me hear about that again or I'm going 2 whup [CENSORED]!

Oh and this afternoon was my birthday and nobody noticed or gave me presents or wished me happy birthday :-(.

What sucks is that [livejournal.com profile] tymaporer said they wanted to play Grand Theft Auto but they didn't show up :-(.

And also Why does [livejournal.com profile] iharthdarth keep posting images in their journal?! I keep telling them I'm on a modem! I'm going to unfriend them to teach them a lesson!!!!!!!!!!

This entry automatically generated by the LJ Drama Generator!

Ender you bad person. :P This afternoon was not actually my birthday, so that part's not surprising. Why would Tyma want to play GTA? And iharthdarth posts images in their journal becuase it's a comic, duh. *eyeroll*

This is the third time I've typoed "because" in this journal.
