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 [ 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. ♥
vethica: (Default)
So while the last post is still fresh I figured this was a good a time as any to let off a little steam over the Homestuck updates. Steam under cut. )

And on to Digimon!

I decided to do some montages for these moments, to make it more interesting and whatnot. These are my first ever montages of this kind so please let me know if they are any good, as I spent a long time on them. ._.

Day 19: A moment that made you happy. (contains picspam) )

Day 20: A moment that made you sad. (contains picspam) )

Day 21: A moment that made you angry. (contains picspam) )

Also I stole this meme from [ profile] wraithi.

Comment with a fandom and I'll tell you:

❤ male:
❤ female:
✖ least favorite:
✔ who resembles me:
❤ most attractive:
❤ three more characters that I like:

Fandoms: Homestuck, Baccano!, Digimon, Madoka, Pokémon, My Little Pony, Jackie Chan Adventures, pretty much everything I've ever posted about on here is fair game!

So it's been a long time since I posted. I'm not going to count exactly how long right now since that will just make me depressed, but I know it's been over a month. I kept having these things I wanted to talk about, and there kept being more building up and then I just... didn't. You know how it is, I think. :( Haven't been commenting much either, though I've been a little better about that. So yes, I am not dead. I do not think anyone was worried that I was but you never know.

What I have been doing during this time is being in California for eight days, the Berkshires for six and Florida for five (not all of these were at once). Just got back from the last today. It was a lot of fun except for when I got sick a few days ago. I am still sick now, so, that is not great. But I had a lot of fun seeing my extended family and everything. Just hope I didn't give them my cold.

Haven't been doing much else apart from that. Playing Sims 3, mostly. I have a decent legacy going and everything. I may picspam you guys with it later. :B I did not get the latest job I applied for, surprising no one, and I think it is too late to learn to drive, so my chances of accomplishing anything this summer are pretty well down there. I did, however, have an idea for what I can do next summer, jobwise, that I thought was a pretty good one: I can learn stenography. I bet I would be pretty good at picking it up, and if I can do that and bring up my typing speed 5 more wpm or so, I might be able to break into the closed-captioning field. And if I get good enough at that, I might be able to eventually get a job subbing things. :D Fansubbing would also be a good place to start with that one. But, um, let's give my Japanese another couple years, shall we.

More miscellany:
- Saw the perfect production of As You Like It over at Shakespeare and Company, and a few days later, entirely by chance, wound up with front-row seats to the opening night of the Williamstown Theater Festival's production of She Stoops To Conquer. I had not read the latter, but it was very funny and had a great cast. I suspect it would come across as pretty dry if you just read the play, so if you can, you should see a good production of it like that one. :D
- Some bitterness toward the recent Homestuck updates, but this post is long enough as is so I guess I'll discuss that later.
- Click for the rest, as this got long. You should read them as there are recs and cool things and stuff! )

Maybe if I take the Digimon meme a couple answers at a time I can finish in the next three weeks. At least these two are fun ones. :D

Day 17: Best dressed character. )

Day 18: Worst dressed character. )

Oh my god those got rambly. I'm so sorry.

Now, since I've been somehow inspired again, I'm off to try and write some of that ridiculous Ladd/Claire I've had banging around in my head for a couple months. Wish me luck~
vethica: (Default)
Happy Fourth of July and belated Canada Day, everyone! :D

[Error: unknown template qotd]
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!

Well, I finally beat the Elite Four in Pokémon Black, which I think is a pretty good reason for GETTING OFF MY BUTT AND POSTING EVER. Team:

lv. 52
lv. 51
lv. 51
lv. 52
lv. 51
lv. 50

with special guest member

lv. 51

I hope there is enough stuff to do afterward to keep me occupied for a while. As for the story, I don't want to spoil anything, but I did end up getting attached to N. He's not such a bad kid, all things considered. And no, I'm not just saying that because of how much I like the Black/White/N threesome. Ash/Iris/Cilan is better anyway.

My life otherwise is exceedingly uninteresting lately. Found out today I had an ear infection, which is about as exciting as it's been. No luck in the job search so far, though admittedly I haven't found very many places I can apply to. Otherwise, I've mostly just been reading TV Tropes and playing Pokémon for the past few days. Haven't even been checking tumblr. That's when you know things are boring.

I have, however, become quite obsessed with fanmixes recently. At some point it hit me that I can download the darn things, since I don't have to be afraid of downloading things from the internet anymore. And so I have been. A few to recommend, if I may:
Names - Homestuck, Dave/John (companion to the beautiful fic You Are Dave Strider and the sequel thereto)
Our Summer Skin - Hetalia, Spain/Belgium (very soft and summery and pretty and oh look also it is one of my hetalia otps)
Don't Be Afraid - Baccano, Jacuzzi Splot (jacccccuuuuuuuuuzzzzzzziiiii)

And I'll be lucky if I finish this meme before this month's out. :|

Day 08: Favourite couple. (WARNING: image-heavy) )

[ profile] theditz, keep an eye out - I found some more Ladd/Claire where I found some of these, and shall be updating my folder soon.

Oh right, also a thing I did was I had an anniversary on Monday. That was pretty cool I guess. ♥
vethica: (Default)
For whatever reason, I've been really obsessed with "Master of the House" over the past day. Never been very taken with Les Miz, but that song is super catchy and lends itself well to Shalom Sesame parodies. Dang. Will probably get sick of it after it is stuck in my head for a few more days, but until then I will keep watching videos of it on YouTube. :B

DAY 16: A song that has made you cry. )

Well, now I'm depressed.

Also, I keep forgetting to mention this, but a couple of friends of mine are writing a Homestuck next-gen AU and I figured some of you might like to read that sort of thing. Yeah, next-gen, I know, but they are good writers and I love the characters and y'all know I don't rec things that aren't quality. :B It is called Learning the Hard Way and it is pretty short so far, so you should read it maybe! :D
vethica: (Default)
I bet you all thought you were done with seeing Pokémon rosters on your flists! >:D


Pokémon talk! )

Non-Pokémon things: I think it is Vethie Talks About Manga She Has Been Reading time again. Well okay, technically it is a manhwa but whatever. Basically I started reading Change Guy/Quantum Mistake a couple weeks ago and it is pretty amazing. Yes it is a bodyswap that is actually not most of the reason I like it okay. It is the characters, mainly, especially the protagonist. So adorkable. ♥ There are also some pretty dudes if that is your thing. It's pretty darn funny too, or at least, I think so. Went and bought a copy of the English version, because that is how I roll, and it was a very nice translation. I wish they'd done more volumes, or if they have, that I could find them anywhere. :x Basically, this is another thing you guys should read okay.

Speaking of translation, a couple quick bad translation things recs. I am making my way through a Let's Play of Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal and this thing needs a fandom or something, man, it is so great. It's also kind of refreshing to see the reckless way these guys play. I'm so used to rushing back to the Pokémon center at any sign of danger that it's an exciting change to see them powering through three trainers in a row with their Pokémon nearly fainted. Also Yu-Gi-Oh fans should follow this tumblr because it's hilarious.

Umm more stuff also. I am guessing the Homestickers on my flist have seen this already, but we have a stamping comm now: [ profile] homestamp. So if you weren't aware of it before, you are now. Go forth! Be stamped! Vote on me!
vethica: (Default)

You guyys I'm not sure I've ever mentioned how much I love this song, but I love this song so much. Lately I'm in one of those phases where I can't stop listening to it, it is ridiculous. Now if only I knew Greek so I could sing along. :|a

Found an awesome comic called Freakangels a few days ago (which I think I'd known about once and forgotten). Read through the archives in less than a day. Very British, very post-apocalyptic, very good. And of course, excellent characters. I want to try to draw them just because of how much they would not fit with my style. :P So what I'm saying is you guys should read it. (But when reading the episodes, don't forget about the individual pages. I did when I started reading and missed quite a bit of the story before I realized. :P)

I've also been playing online Dominion basically all the time in the past few days, because life what is that. If you haven't played Dominion, it is a very fun deck-building card game. More fun in person, probably, but the online one is good too. It's also quite easy to pick up, so let me know if you want to play sometime. I am always looking for more people to rope in opponents.

Also. Much less happy about the Homestuck update than everyone else seems to be. Short spoilers. )

And, uh, apparently Doug Walker gave a shout out to Atlantis in one of his latest videos. Yay. c:

I feel like this post is pretty boring but I have nothing else to really talk about, so.

e: also why am I getting so much spam and is it okay if I start to delete it instead of just screening it
because seriously

HI NEW FRIENDS PART 2: [ profile] lintwhite, [ profile] missmorrichan, [ profile] ocelotofdoom, and [ profile] vycey hiiiiii :3

Haven't had too much to talk about lately. Finally caught up on my homework and my sleep; let's see how long that lasts. I've also become a proper /vp/oreon in the past week or so. Posting to 4chan is addictive, let me tell you. I know, I never would have thought I'd be a 4channer either, but /vp/ is different. A good percentage of the time they are actually nice! :o Also the picspams.

And now (speaking of picspams) A PICTURE MEME THAT I STOLE FROM [ profile] t_funster! (see this is why having new friends is good) (also happy birthday [ profile] t_funster :D)

Pick a character from a fandom. Use any variety of pictures of that character that are already on your hard drive to answer the criteria.

Character: Grell Sutcliff
the grellest of sutcliffs )

Grell, you fine, fine woman. Stop being fictional already.

BY THE WAY if anyone else has any more Grell pics (and I know some of you do), feel free to picspam me in comments! As you can tell, I've already exhausted Zerochan's supply. ._.;;

Also, after drawing my Nuzlocke team for a /vp/ thread, I've been wanting to draw more Pokémon lately. So! This is where you guys can request Pokémon pictures from me. They will look like this or this; it's not high art, but it's free and relatively cute. Get your team, get your favorites, get whatever, get requesting! :D

(Also for Homestuck fans who do not follow [ profile] whatpumpkin, I wrote a sonnet a few days ago. Maybe you would want to see it. :B)
vethica: (Default)
Folks from f!s friending meme ([ profile] digivolution, [ profile] t_funster, [ profile] tadashi_chan): HI NEW FRIENDS :B I'm planning on going back through and trying to add some more people, so expect a HI NEW FRIENDS PART 2 at some point later I guess, but I hope you guys can hang out while waiting for the rest of 'em to get here. So yes, this is an example of a typical post from me! Also I don't think I've posted it here before, but I'm vethica on AIM too if you or anyone else wants to message me. It's always nice to add people to my woefully small buddy list.

So, sorry for not having been updating. Haven't had too much to talk about, I guess. While I was home my life was being eaten by The Sims 3 (remind me to post pictures sometime), and now that I am at school it is being eaten by school. I'd forgotten how miserable I get when school happens. The night I got back I was just feeling too crappy and unmotivated to do any work, so I did not get any work done and stayed up till 5 anyway. \o/ So I'm not proud, but I'm working on doing better. Hopefully it will be a reminder of what not to do the rest of the semester. Hopefully.

On a Homestuck note: I don't have much to say about the latest updates, mainly because everything I wanted to say has probably been said by other people. Pretty much all I have is this: not much ) Buuuut I did go and translate the kids' and trolls' Sburb titles into Latin while I was supposed to be doing my actual homework. I think they look pretty cool! (Spoilers for Gamzee's title.)

I like how two of these are variations on 'equus.' )

This has the added bonus that now I will never forget any of their titles.

Also, reading about [ profile] hiimdaisy's hiatus, while sad, has inspired me to go back and reread the comics. I'd forgotten how funny they were. Seriously, the lady's a comedic genius. I also discovered that they have some amazing fandubs. (But on the downside now I will be sad if I ever play a Persona game because they could never live up to these versions.)

Finally: I am going to Webcomics on Ice* this weekend! HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE COOL and I can glare at Andrew Hussie for spoiler. :B
*disclaimer: no actual ice
vethica: (italy bff)
I know I have things to post and memes to answer, but since that will take a while I'm just going to leave this here for now: [ profile] anonchatmeme. You can anonymously talk to/ask embarrassing questions of/sexually harass your favorite characters! It is awesome and I've been addicted since last night. I figured some of you might be also interested. yeah the one who proposed to Grell was totally me

...also. I think I just realized I have a blackrom crush on Vriska. Whyyyy. 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 [ 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 [ 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

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>

I've started reading this new manga called 7 Billion Needles. It is excellent and I am glad I was talked into buying it. The protagonist is a girl who would get along really, really well with Neku from TWEWY. Or maybe they would not because they both hate people. But they have the exact same mindset and the headphones to go with it. I would tell you about the plot but I'm not sure how much I can describe or should spoil. It is part freaky and part sweet and part awesome though. The only problem is that there are three more volumes to buy and I am but a poor college student. :(

I have given up on the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG for the time being. I have, however, gotten a fair bit better at the Pokémon TCG and even formed a semi-decent deck. I've even beaten people. :B Hit me up if you want to play me on Lackey, anyone.

Okay that is enough words. Have a wallpaper meme! (stolen from [ profile] wraithi (again))
01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LJ.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.

Now that I am on a computer where I actually change my wallpaper... )

...wait that is not the kind of meme that people can participate in. HAVE THIS ONE TOO (stolen from [ profile] ludwig)

Leave a comment with the name of a series/fandom and I will tell you which people on my flist (including myself?) I'd choose to play the roles of the main characters. If there are a lot of main characters, tell me which groups/characters you'd prefer that I cast.


e: ALSO HI [ profile] cheshirecgrin YOU ARE MY FRIEND NOW
vethica: (Default)
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 [ 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: (Default)
Why is this song stuck in my heaaaaad
the quintessential cornerstone of carnal cordiality~

ALSO HI I am back from vacation. I survived apparently. Now I have some more genderswap to draw. Also I should eat.

vethica: (Default) I need to remember how to make posts that don't involve memes.

I started playing Heart Gold again. Goal is to beat the Elite Four, but I can't even get there because of how impossible it is to catch Ho-Oh. I tried everything. Even Down+A has failed me. Any advice?

Also, Hinata was cuter with short hair. Actually, everyone was cuter before the timeskip.* Actually, everything was better before the timeskip. Yeah, I remember when Naruto was actually good. Good times.

* Except Gaara. Mullet yesss.

*draws troll genderswap for [ profile] captchalogue*

Day 30

30. Character you’d want to cosplay as )

That was fun! Maybe I'll start another one soon.
