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. )

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

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! )

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 [livejournal.com 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!
vethica: (Default)
So apparently in the Baccano! DS game you can make two of the dudes get married. Two dudes who are both psycho killers and also enemies. In 1930s America. And it's adorable. Here's the scene (WARNING: spoilers) and accompanying screenshot. Ffffff. And now I ship it.

Also I finished Baccano! yesterday (with [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom). Um. It's pretty amazing. The characters (so many characters). The train fights. The masterfully interlocking storylines. The heartwarming (yes, there is, actually, buckets of it.) The dub. Y'all definitely ought to watch it, if you haven't already. A few people to squee with wouldn't go amiss. :D

More miscellaneous/spoilery thoughts below. )

Anyway that is my excuse as to why I did not do the Digimon meme yesterday. Luckily, the next two days kind of go together, so I will do them as a unit.

Day 06: A couple you wish existed. )

Day 07: A couple you can’t stand. )
vethica: (Default)
Well, it's been a while. That is me for you.

Pokémon update:
Seymour
Lily
Kiri
Randy
Nikola
Neil
(lv. 35)

Had to cut this because it was getting long but you should definitely read my rambles about my pokémon also mustache dog )

So um. I will try to keep this brief because I know some people are sick of hearing me talk about it, but I am kind of hooked on ponies. FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC IS SO GOOD OKAY @_@ You know how I don't cry at most fictional things? This show has me tearing up like no one's business. It's not even sad, it's just... heartwarming, I guess. So much friendship ♥ My favorite is Rainbow Dash because she is awesome and Buttercup, but I also like Fluttershy because she is me and Applejack because dat personality and dem freckles. <3 Not that I don't love the other three too, of course. And Spike. I love Spike. He's adorable. Anyway I just thought I would let you know that I am now whatever the female version of a brony is. (A sisny?) *draws human ponies because that is what you do*

Also [livejournal.com profile] help_japan continues to have amazing artists and bidding is open until the end of the month so I encourage you again to buy some stuff and help out! As long as you don't outbid me. :P

(Okay one last thing. Saw my high school's production of My Fair Lady with Tyma the other night. Good music, good acting, terrible ending, and oh my god there was so much Higgins/Pickering slash potential. "Why can't a woman be like you?" indeed. :D Tyma also suggested Higgins/Pickering/Eliza OT3, which I quite approve of. Somehow Higgins/Eliza is more bearable in that context, especially if they still hate each other. :B

Also I saw Daniel Radcliffe in How To Succeed in Business last week. Sooo coool man *_*)
vethica: (Default)
This seems like as good a time as any to talk about Pokémon Black! :D So after a harrowing bus trip and a ridiculous amount of rain, I was finally able to sit down and play for a couple hours. I've only just beaten the first gym and caught my sixth Pokémon, so this is my team right now:

Seymour, lv. 11
Lily, lv. 10
Patrice, lv. 10
Zara, lv. 10
Salina, lv. 11
Miina, lv. 10

yes I know it is the most basic team you can have shut up. I'm mainly just amused by the fact that all of them except Seymour are girls. He's accumulating himself quite the harem. :P I wonder how long it will be until I catch another dude. He will be the gay option.

Thoughts on the game itself: I strongly dislike the translation. All the dialogue seems so awkward and forced. Bring back Nob Ogasawara please. ;_; Not a huge fan of the graphics either, though I suppose I'll get used to them eventually. But the whole 3D, dynamic camera thing just... doesn't feel like Pokémon to me. Also Poké Mart in Pokémon Center and reusable TMs wuuut ruined forever. But I'm aware I'm just whining, so, anyway. Time to get in another hour or so before bed. :B

EDIT: Oh man, they finally made the Pokémon's eyes close when they fall asleep. Coolness estimation revised slightly upward.
vethica: (Default)
And now we come to the other part of the new names: the Elite Four and Subway Bosses.

You ready for this? )

On another note, I know the dub's been out since forever, but I just found these clips of Grell's dub voice the other day. Swooooon. Love it, perfect, amazing, et cetera. Not too crazy about "Bassy" (né Sebby) but the rest is spot-on. Also love all the added Romeo and Juliet paraphrasing (at least, I don't think all that was in the original). I need to get my hands on these DVDs... in a couple of years once the price goes down. x_x
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
vethica: (Default)
I continue to be caught up with most of my responsibilities. It is a ridiculous feeling. I am taking this chance while I still have some homework for tomorrow to procrastinate and LJ post. Can't let myself get too complacent.

So now I will talk about a topic very near and dear to my heart: gym leader names. As many of you know, the English names of the Gen V gym leaders (and a couple other characters) were recently released and confirmed by several reputable sources. Although Bulbapedia, the be all and end all, has not yet confirmed them, they're looking pretty official. Personally, I have mixed feelings, but mainly negative ones, which I will elaborate upon in this very journal!

Cut for those who want to be surprised when the games come out. )

In conclusion, stupid new translation company.

Speaking of Pokémon, I'm almost done with the requests from last post. Sure were a lot of Electric Pokémon. :B Requests are still open if anyone wants one! Just putting that out there.

Okay now I will do homework. Or eat, or something.
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: (Default)
I know I haven't been posting in forever. I'm sorry. It's like I don't even know what to say anymore. I haven't been doing much fandom stuff at all (except reading Shakespeare :B), so the only thing I can really talk about is my life. And my life right now is college. So you get to hear about college.

cut for life and college )

Oh hey! Here is a meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] amael_elen. I don't normally do this kind of meme but what the heck. Fill it out shite kudasai? (YEAH I AM ACING JAPANESE II)

YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST!:
I want to know 28 things about you. I don't care if we've never talked, never really clicked, or if we already know everything about each other. I really don't. You are obviously on my flist, so let me know with whom I'm friends!

DO YOU WANT TO HEAR ME BEING SUPER LATE TO THE PARTY AGAIN AS USUAL

SURE YOU DO

So I spent today, after sleeping in really late and only waking up in time for anime club, watching children's cartoon shows that I wish had been around when I routinely watched children's cartoon shows. Which would of course be Phineas and Ferb and Adventure Time. The former is clever and full of musical numbers (and makes me ship het >:|), and the latter is delightfully surreal and unironic. And has Bender in it. I know everyone already loves those two shows, but if you do not, then you should watch them and you will. Promise.

Also the reason I was so tired in the first place was because I spent all Monday night not getting any sleep at the post-graduation party. Graduation was exciting and depressing, which I guess is how things like that usually are. The party was basically just loud and reminded me that I am never staying up all night again, but they did play "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" at the end, which was so not fair. ;_; I WILL MISS EVERYONE.

Also while we are at it club reminded me that I miss Toonami. ;_;

*begins wasting the rest of her summer*
vethica: (Default)
Okay first I want to say hi to everyone from the F!S friending meme, because this is the most friends I've ever made on one meme. So hey there, [livejournal.com profile] altarii, [livejournal.com profile] demiincarnate, [livejournal.com profile] luzerna, [livejournal.com profile] mireia_antonina, [livejournal.com profile] pana, [livejournal.com profile] sexyblack, and [livejournal.com profile] wraithi. You're pretty cool. :D

Next, thoughts on Pokémon Gen V stuff, which is totally not several days old what are you talking about.

Starters: The green one is amazing. I love its snooty little snout and those lidded eyes. So cute. The pig is crazy adorable too; I'd totally start with that if the green one hadn't stolen my heart. I dunno about the otter; I love the freckles, but not the nose. So yeah.
(Also I don't care if they have names. They are "the pig", "the otter", and "the green one" until I say different. :|)

Trainers: Their hair! ♥ It's about time we got some player characters with poofy hair. I especially love the girl's ponytail and how it fans out behind her when she runs. But really, they're both majorly cute. I'd have trouble choosing if I didn't always play as the girl. :P

If Gen V continues in this vein I think I'm going to like it. :D
vethica: (Default)
Hyvää ruotsalaisuuden päivää! :D

So I've been playing Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days over the past few days, and I'm officially in love with Organization XIII. They're such a big screwy family, it's kind of adorable. E... except for when SPOILERS )

On a somewhat related note, cut for lameness of plotbunny ).

Very little progress on NaNo. Maybe this weekend. Or maybe never! :D

WHY DO I ALWAYS MISS BLEACH WHEN THE GOOD THINGS HAPPEN

THE ESPADA DUBBED

NEL DUBBED

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

On the bright side, the voices are perfect, especially Dondochakka's. Well, I'm still not in love with Grimmjow's, or the fact that his name is pronounced "Greemjow", and Nel's voice sounds a little too old for her, but whatever. At least we finally got to hear Szayel, whose voice I am going to marry, kthx. :B
vethica: (Default)
Apparently I have some internet on this vacation. I must use these powers for good!

...And by good I apparently mean whining about Shonen Jump. Eh, close enough.

So, SPHFWLKaiB finally showed up in Bleach. You can probably imagine my reaction. But. Butbutbut. They spelled his name as one word - Szayelaporro, like that. I know that's probably closer to the original, and since the speech bubbles are so narrow it shows up as hyphenated anyway, which is almost like two words. So I really have no reason to be upset about this. But idk, man, I just think it looks dumb. Some other spellings they have that bug me are "Nnoitora" (I know it's not that different, but still) and (are you ready for this one?) "Cirucci Sanderwicci". Sanderwicci? What is she, a BLT? Dude, "Thunderwitch" is possibly the coolest last name ever. You can't screw that up. D: You know what, I think I am just going to be one of those people I hate who ignores canon and spells people's names however she darn well pleases. Like heck I'm giving up "Thunderwitch".

While I'm here, I suppose I should say something briefly about the other mangas in Shonen Jump. Because I can.

Naruto: I really like how Naruto calls Yondaime "Pa". They could have gone with "Dad" so easily, but I like "Pa" better. It gives him character. And it's cute. Pain was a cute kid.

One Piece: Nami/Vivi is so canon. Mr. 2 Bon-chan is amazing.

Ultimo: O.A. must love this series. There is no way Jealousy is a boy.

Yu Yu Hakusho: Natsume is surprisingly attractive. I like seeing all those people from forever ago.

Tegami Bachi: I would probably like this series better if the people didn't have such stupid names. Two words: Jiggy Pepper. Niche makes it worth reading, though. She's great. Also I like the term "Letter Bee". Reminds me of Smellerbee. Or Linda Ellerbee.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: I don't care.

Also I am going to see Wicked tonight yay.
vethica: (Default)
Speaking of Disney movies (we were doing that, right?): I know I'm a loser who only saw about four* of them during her childhood proper, and it's really sad that it took me until yesterday to watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame. But dang, that is a good movie. I think it just elbowed its way right in there under The Lion King as one of my favorite Disney movies. I mean, the music alone is excellent, but then you add in the characters and the plot and everything, and, wow. Suffice it to say that it's becoming my latest short-term obsession. And I need to acquire the soundtrack. OF COURSE I DON'T NEED TO TELL YOU GUYS THIS STUFF THOUGH BECAUSE YOU ALL HAD NORMAL CHILDHOODS. 8D (Although I have no idea how this movie got away with a G rating. IMO some of the stuff it deals with really isn't for kids. Which, y'know, is part of why I like it. But anyway.)

* Three if you don't count The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh as an actual movie.

Also, since I may not get a chance to post something later, I'm leaving again tomorrow for vacation. I'll be back next Tuesday. And then school starts. =_=

P.S. Apparently in Japanese, the @ sign is known as "naruto". This should not be so funny.
vethica: (Default)
It's recently come to my attention what an embarrassing percentage of my thoughts is spent on attractive fictional-type guys. Which maaay not be the best thing to write about now that I have an attractive real-type boyfriend who reads this thing. So, uh, let's see what else is floating around in my head.

Okay, how about some brief thoughts on Bleach 224? So brief they don't even warrant a cut. )

Stuff got long, so have cuts for the rest too. This one is about Bleach also. )

Hetalia shipping? In my TMBG? )

Aaand more Disgaea. ) Yeah, so I once again exhort you guys to play Disgaea. It even makes leveling fun. Plaaay iiit.
