Well I guess it is just about time for another one of these! Four episodes in this one.

All warnings from the previous two posts apply. Happy reading, yo.

Especially the one about possession. )

Started season 2! I figured I'd start posting this liveblog in chunks, instead of waiting till the end of the season to make a huge post. Season 2 is very long, after all, and this way the feels stay fresher! Doing it a few episodes at a time is probably easier to read for you guys as well. c: But let me know if this is too few episodes for one post. I'll adjust the future ones accordingly.

All warnings from the previous post apply, this time also including fetishization of possession. (hi my name is Veth and I have a huge possession kink) (hi veth) So, you know. You've been warned. :B

Liveblogging follows! )

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3!

So, hey guys. I know I haven't posted in about seven months. I'm sorry if anyone was worried about me (although I don't think anyone was, because I've been very active on tumblr and AIM and elsewhere during that time, but you never know). The reason for this absence is, well, kind of embarrassing. It is simply that I just couldn't write the next 100 things post. After taking so long since the last one, I didn't want to make a new post without having it be an 100 things one. But I kept staring at the compose draft page and nothing very interesting was coming out. So I kind of... dropped off the face of Dreamwidth and LJ altogether. (Well, except for [community profile] fandomsecrets.) It's been long enough, though. So I guess this is a notice that my 100 things is on hiatus until I can bang out a post that's reasonably good. Sorry about that, y'all.

Now I've got to give an explanation for this post I'm making now. I have, as some do, a paper journal, in which I chronicle those of my thoughts that are too embarrassing, ridiculous, or personal for the outside world. A fair bit of fandom stuff makes its way in there too, and so as I've been rewatching JCA recently, I ended up writing down my thoughts on the episodes in said journal, in something of a livebloggy fashion. I just finished season 1 yesterday, and while looking over the notes I'd been taking, I realized that there was nothing too too personal in there, and that they contained a lot of thoughts I wouldn't mind sharing. I've recently been connecting with a bunch of JCA fans on tumblr (active JCA fans exist!! And they are cool people!!! ♥), and so I thought hey, if I typed up this liveblogging I did, there might be people around who'd want to read it. So I did, and maybe there are! (I should probably tell you now that it's missing four episodes, so you hopefully won't be too disappointed if you were expecting all 13. I watched them; I just didn't write about them. ._.;; Also, just so you're aware, it's quite long! But it's all bullet points, so hopefully it's not too much of a pain to read. c:)

Warnings: This liveblog wasn't written with anyone in mind except myself. The following has therefore been slightly modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit your screen, and also with the intent of excising irrelevant stuff and making me seem like slightly less of a creeper. It still contains some NSFW talk (though nothing graphic), discussion of a pretty pedo ship, fetishization of vulnerability, fangirling in amounts that are possibly unhealthy and definitely embarrassing, and a higher-than-usual incidence of the letter V. If any of that bothers you, you should turn around now.

Now it is JCA liveblog time! )

Okay, so I haven't posted since mid-July. Is there a reason for this? Well, sort of. I got caught up in work for my internship, and when I was done working for the day I was generally too burnt out to make a post. And when I wasn't I was probably playing Pokémon Conquest or something. :P And about a week after that ended, I left for Japan. So here I am, about a month into Japan and finally feeling like I have things together somewhat, so I decided maybe I ought to post! Besides, LJ has once again decided it would be a good idea to make a completely unnecessary and unwanted change, this time to the posting page, so I should enjoy this one that actually works while I can. :B

So I guess I'll just post some things from my life I've been thinking about. Starting with stuff about Japan.

Stuff about Japan! )

I think that is it about Japan, but let me know if you guys have any questions, or if you want me to get you anything! I will do it. I will get you things. You may have to pay for them depending on the price though. :P

And now on to some fandomy stuff!

new best fandom = Kokoro Connect )

And a dream I had (+new weird crush!) )

my life everyone. Well I think that is quite enough for one post! Don't worry, though; for anyone who's been waiting with bated breath for my next 100 things post, I'll try to get it up soon. C: (that's what he said)

EDIT: Wow I almost forgot. You guys remember the dakimakura case I mentioned commissioning from [livejournal.com profile] soltian a few months ago? Well, here's the finished product! Yes, it's Valmont. Did you guys expect anything else from me. c: Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh it's perfect though and I'm really sad I'm in Japan and not at home where I can hug my new dakimakura. I urge you guys to commission your own ones when she opens commissions up again next month or so! Because seriously. ♥

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:

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)
Okay, my current massive amount of homework is out of the way. Mostly. I still have a Japanese oral tomorrow but I am not thinking about that. D: The homework would probably not have been so bad if I had not been staying up late wasting my time on the internet instead of just doing it, but apparently that is how I roll.

Man, I hate how I roll.

Brief cut for holiday sadness )

Um. On a happier note, I'm still on a huge Sondheim kick from reading his book/watching the birthday concert last week (also amazing, btw). I've been checking out some of his plays that I didn't know previously, currently Pacific Overtures because it is educational and has some very catchy music. Also, Sab Shimono (Uncle from JCA) was in the OBC! :D He's the one in the striped shirt. (The whole thing's on YouTube, but I haven't had the time to sit down and watch it. Also it is not that great quality.)

By far my favorite song is this one. It is practically begging for a Hetalia AMV but there are a lot of reasons why that would not happen, not least being the Netherlands has like no screen time. So I'll probably just draw a picture for it or something.

Will post some memes or something next time. Maybe work on the ones I still owe. Sorry, again.

Also:
THE TIME CAPSULE MEME

Even if you don't know me that well I'd still like it if you posted something. :)

Translation of last post. )

So now I will talk about manga.

Seven Days volume 1 came in the mail yesterday. I ordered it back in August, on the recommendation of... someone on f!s, I think. That is basically where I get all my stuff to read. ._. Anyway, I wasn't disappointed. It's a shounen-ai with a sweet story, realistic characters and an incredibly cute art style. Nothing earth-shattering, but cute. I pass along the recommendation.

Now, of course, I need something else to wait for. So I ordered the first volume of Futaba-kun Change after reading a few chapters online. I'm now seven volumes in and really liking this manga. Yes, it's a gender-bender with kind of an ecchi premise (guy turns into a girl when he's aroused), but it's really not as bad as it sounds. It ends up being more of a character-driven comedy. What I'm trying to say is, if I wasn't put off by it, you probably won't be either. :P And it's cute. The whole thing's online here if you want to check it out. (Warning: a fair bit of toplessness.)

Also rereading Saint Young Men again, because, well, it's Saint Young Men. I just wish more of it would hurry up and get translated. D: If any of you haven't read/don't know of it: Jesus. Buddha. Roommates. If that's not enough to get you to read, it's also really funny. I've read it twice before and it still makes me laugh. I'd be remiss not to provide a link I guess.

Wow, all my posts talking about things I read turn into rec posts, don't they. Anyway, to close on a different note, Hourou Musuko's English release date got pushed back two more months. Why am I not surprised. =_=;; The current prospective release is in April, but don't get too attached to that one either. I just wish I knew what was the reason for all the delay. I WANT MY WANDERING SON DANG IT.

I realized that I'm really bad at making friends. It's hard for me to do it in real life and next to impossible online. I'm not sure I've ever done the latter, except for those guys on Neopets back in the day. LJ friends, I love you guys, but most of us aren't that close, right? I am so bad at talking to people. I hate being like that. x_x

Also I wish there were people to play me in online Yu-Gi-Oh/Pokémon TCG. I need to improve my decks. :(

And, because no post is complete without a meme, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] wraithi:
Character Guessing Meme :B )

Mix of old and new fandoms, but mostly old because my newer ones would probably be too obvious. With the end result that most of these ended up terribly bland, but then I am a bland person. I think I've been obsessive about all of these at one point or another, though. Also I tried to pick ones where my favorite character and the character I have a crush on were not the same, but some of those got through. Whoops.

I also hate not having anything to post anymore.
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.

Are cartoon shows an object?

Also hey have a meme

IT'S BETTER THAN IT SOUNDS!
Pick 20 titles from any media (movies, video games, literary works, etc.) and find their summaries on Better than it Sounds. Have your friends guess without cheating.


Meme goes here )

I have noticed that most of the descriptions on that page actually sound pretty awesome. :|

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>

...why does this make so much sense. It's not exactly what I was looking for, but dang. Who knew that Hetalia and JCA were two great tastes that went great together?

(Maybe I will stop making a million posts about JCA sometime ever. But don't count on it.)
vethica: (Default)
Is it so hard to find one JCA fic that's in character, well-written and not about OCs?

...I guess it is. :\

(It doesn't help that all the pairings I ship are incredibly wrong and thus even harder to find goodfic of. But I'm really not picky at this point.)

Also some kind of anime archetype meme )
Somehow my results don't surprise me.

Also, Kimi ni Todoke is basically the most uplifting manga I've ever read. Like, it should be illegal to be that heartwarming. Fffffff.
vethica: (Default)
Watching Slayers (the dub, anyway) is such a surreal experience because the male lead has Brock's voice. Like, exactly Brock's voice. But that just makes it that much better. I can't believe I never watched this show before, it's super fun. I really have to watch the rest sometime.

Also, even after so many years, I would still totally marry JCA. (The first two seasons, at least.) I don't even care that marriage between humans and cartoon shows is probably illegal everywhere (except maybe Guam). That show. <3

...I think I'm joking. Maybe. I hope.
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
