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! )

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! )

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

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~

Kirk. Get all the babes. And the Spocks.

So, what I was saying last time about the pictures. Y'all know how I've often despaired about Danbooru's almost exclusively catering towards the male gaze? Friends, meet Bishibooru! You will never go hungry (for pictures of hot guys or hot guys making out with other hot guys) again. :B That's where I got some of the Taito pictures from last post, and also a good chunk of the stuff in my Ladd/Claire folder (which I've updated since then, so [livejournal.com profile] theditz even if you checked it out last time you should check it out again. :B). I believe that said folder now contains the majority of Ladd/Claire art available on the internet, but if anyone knows of any I've missed, send them my way~!

(I love Ladd/Claire so much btw. whoops I guess somehow I acquired a new OTP)

Day 09: Favourite friendship. (WARNING: more images) )

And, uh, something less good. I was checking up on Hourou Musuko/Wandering Son on Amazon (volume 1 comes out next month, hopefully!) and noticed this charming sentence in the description of volume 2:
The “woman” who showed so much interest in Yoshino (when she was wearing a boy’s school uniform) in volume one reappears with “her” boyfriend, and becomes a mentor and friend to the two children.

...Um. I know people can get kind of fluid with the pronouns for the kids, so I'll let the "she" for Takatsuki go, but... I'm pretty sure the series has very clearly established Yuki-san's gender identity. There is absolutely no need for the scare quotes around "woman" and "her". That's kind of disgusting. Does anyone know who one would complain to about something like this? Should I just post in the product discussion forum? D:<

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) )

[livejournal.com 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. ♥
