100 of My Fandoms
12. Bleach

Kurosaki-kuuuuun! )

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

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! )


Also! If any of you guys have an OC that you want icons of, [ 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

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.

No, wait, I got something. Okay, so, Usa-chan came up with that in the giant Bleach live-action movie that is totally something that exists, Orlando Bloom plays Nemu. Think about it: guy with no facial expressions plays girl with no emotions. Also, hits on a guy. Discuss.

(also this is a cool website)

What a week, what a week. Within the space of five days, the threesome 4/6/8 (Cubone/Jaromír Jágr/SPHWFLKaiB - that's Ulquiorra/Grimmjow/Szayel (from Bleach) to you) was created and shot down. Everyone seems to think it doesn't make any sense. Even Usa-chan, its creator, seems to have abandoned it in favor of 4/6, and I am left shipping it all alone. And it's not just my insane fangirlness for SPHWFLKaiB (which, incidentally, stands for "Sexy Pink-Haired Fellow Who Licks Knives and is Bespectacled") talking - I actually think it does work better than any of its permutations on their own. Or maybe it's just hotter. Of course, given my unfamiliarity with most of Bleach, my friends are probably right. Oh well, whatever.

Okay, guess how many amounts of homework I have this weekend. Okay? Ready? None, sucker! *booyah*

What is it with me and missing my LJ-versary? Sheesh. Just pretend it was today.

Tyma had the idea that I should type up this old Star Wars fic I wrote forever ago for a homework assignment. She said I should post it on, but since I don't have an account there, maybe when I'm done I'll post it here. Possibly.

The official video for my favorite T.M. Revolution song (out of the ones I know, which is one), "madan ~Der Freischutz~", got taken down from YouTube. *sad face* Well, at least there are still a couple live ones and AMVs I can watch. On the plus side, I realized that the Cotton-Eye Joe dance fits that song really well. A bit too well, maybe.

Now that I have finished the "why I love you" meme from a frillion years ago, I am able to post another commenting meme (stolen once again from HG). And it goes like this:

Comment and I'll...

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LJ.

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along. Just tell me if you want me to question your interests.

animutations - Weird Flash animations that often contain mondegreens and Colin Mochrie. Invented by the ever-irrepressible Neil Cicierega.
bob - is the best name ever. Think about it - it's so all-purpose. Bob is also the deity of Bobism, which [ profile] akasunano_usagi and I made up.
darth maul - A Sith Lord from Star Wars, whose first and only appearance was in The Phantom Menace. He has red and black tattoos all over. He wields a double-ended lightsaber. He's pretty sick.
genderswap - Something that occasionally occurs in fanfiction. Actually, there are two kinds: when characters suddenly change gender or when it's an AU where they've been the opposite gender for their whole life. In the first, I like to see how they react to suddely being the opposite gender. (I like when weird-type stuff happens to characters. :\) The second type can be great if the author plans it out well. Unfortunately, I have yet to read such a one.
host club - This comes from Ouran High School Host Club, an anime. (I would have put "ouran high school host club" as an interest, but it has five words. D: ) The Host Club is a group of attractive boys the sole purpose of which is to charm girls. I.e., fangirl heaven.
sock puppets - Not the kind you use when you troll, but actual puppets made from socks. This is a long-running inside joke between myself and [ profile] akasunano_usagi. When I found out that Sasori from Naruto was a puppet, I asked if he was a sock puppet. She claimed that he was a marionette. Now we constantly argue over which is better.
your mom - I say it a lot, generally in nonsensical contexts. It's probably a bad habit. [ profile] tymaporer has picked up on this habit, and now it's a bit of a running joke between us as well. Same with "your face".

vethica: (Default)
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. [ profile] littleyuzu, she of [ 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:)

O.A., Usa-chan, and I have decided that Phoenix Wright got his name the same way Fenchurch from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy did hers. Also, Mr. Kimura from Azumanga Daioh is Phoenix's dad. ...Or something. (O.A., you can make your objections here.)

Any Star Wars and/or Avenue Q fans may want to watch this video, set to "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist"; it is almost the perfect-est video ever. Warnings: racism (which oughtta go without saying) and one instance of profanity. And, in the video, a very odd couple. XD

And a plea: Does anyone still have their old Pokémon "2BA Master" CD? I've discovered that mine's got a big scratch right down the end of track 3 and the beginning of track 4, so I was wondering if I could copy those off someone else's CD. Thanks. ^_^
vethica: (jack)
sat down and I wrote this song, I couldn't tell you that you were right, so instead I looked in the mirror, watched TV, laid awake all night...

Idol last night. Geez. I absolutely agree with Antonella's elimination - about time. I'm sad about Jared - he was a good singer - but I guess he just didn't have the personality or something. Sundance...I'd have rather have had Sanjaya out, but I didn't like Sundance too much either, and if there is any justice in the world we can send Sanjaya home next week. But Sabrina. SABRINA. WHUT. For Haley (sp?)? No. Just NO, America. What on earth you were thinking. DDD:

(No, I don't know why I bold their names. STHU.)

I had the best conversation about Naruto with my Spanish teacher at the end of class, and she's like, "I know about Naruto now. I'm cool." ^_^

Well, off to Usa-chan's to rehearse for the talent show, where I am sure I will drag the whole group down with my absence of talent. Oy.

Also my Jack keychain broke.


EDIT: Talent show updatey )

So I guess the lesson here is, memes need to be their own post. (O.A., I'm surprised you didn't get #5. Or #2, for that matter.)

Hanataro (from Bleach) is "Dr. Mario". Byakuya (from same) is "Corrugated Cardboard Head". Itachi is "Poke Man". And Usa-chan is Naruto's mom. Confused yet?

Also, everyone can be connected to Edward Elric in six easy steps.

Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? )

Quick American Idol opinions: I really like Sanjaya's hair, but he either needs to pick it up (a LOT) or get voted out. I like the two Chris's, too. Phil, like the similarly bald Chris Daughtry, seems destined to be a fan favorite. And Blake is just amazing.
vethica: (Default)
@Tyma: I'll post the quotes when I can remember more than one of them.

All Naruto fans who read this LJ, THIS FANFIC. Read it. Yes, it's a high school AU, but it's a super well-done one. Here's a taste of what's inside: Naruto's the new kid, Yondaime's his father, Sasuke's an emo, Gaara's a British goth, Kimimaro's a Rastafarian, Zabuza's a gangster, and Orochimaru is the chorus teacher. And that's just the surface. It deals with some pretty sensitive subjects, too. Yeah. Read it.

O.A. and Usagi-chan need to stop giving me plotbunnies. How awesome is all the people with one normal eye and one magical eye teaming up? Pegasus, Kakashi and Moody? That would be a heckuva crossover! Ooh - maybe Ragetti can join too! Seriously, though, stop that.

I also got deviantART to upload some of my pictures. Checkitout cetera.

So apparently I now kind of have a ginormous crush on Coach Z. I blame Gryphowizardgirl. Entirely.

The only reason the rest of this entry is not filled with whining about my (lack of) work and sleep habits is becuase I'm too lazy to write it.
vethica: (Default)
Forget Steve/Sauron, my new OTP is Mello/Remus. SRSLY. I shall call it...HMS...something about chocolate.

On the subject of crossover pairings, the more I thnk about Sohma Kagura/Hibiki Ryoga, the more it makes sense. Anyone else thinks this way?

And O.A. and Usagi-chan and I were talking about Gaia this morning, and I realized that Gaia sounds like a portmanteau ship name for Gai/Gaara. o_O
vethica: (Default)
I would like to apologize for not posting the birthdays of, among others, David Wenham (41 on September 21st), Tom Felton (19 on September 22nd), and Mark Hamill (55 on September 25th). I've been getting around to posting this for a while, so...yeah.

Meme )

vethica: (Default)
Or, in other words, this is my 50th post. W00t. Coincidentally, the other Sir Ian, Sir Ian Holm, turns 75 today. The big three-quarter-century. Happy birthday.

So apparently Satoshi Tajiri (the creator of Pokémon) is an Aspie. Good news for us, eh?

So there is like some French company called Vethica, but with an accent mark on the e - don't you start, Freeglader - which I did not know about when I came up with this name. So is this like copyright infringement or something? Do I need to change my name? Am I gonna get sued or whatever?

EDIT: Possible AWE spoilers )
vethica: (jack)
Since I was a really lazy non-posting person this past month, there were two birthdays I didn't acknowledge. My apologies to John Noble (who turned 58 on the 20th) and Billy Boyd (who turned 38 on the 28th).

What did I say I was going to talk about? Pirates and pie...Well, um, Pirates kinda starts with the word pie, so...actually, I've been putting off making a proper post for so long that I've completely forgotten everything I was going to say. Sorry. School's starting soon. Bleah. Oh - Freeglader, if you're reading this, I read Dune. I guess your fanfic did something after all.

My computer's in the shop right now, so if you were trying to email me, you can't. This is being posted from the library computer, but I don't like checking my email on public computers. So.

A website to check out: Guess the Character (shown to me by Tyma). Like a more-than-20-questions game of 20 questions, this game guesses right a lot. And if it doesn't, you can input your character into the game so it will guess it next time!

Interesting stuff I've friended:

[ profile] bri_chan - Check out her deviantART page. She does Pirates stuff. She does LotR stuff. She does Disney stuff. She's cool.
[ profile] fanart100 - A fanart challenge comm. Artists pick subjects and then have to make 100 arts based on a prompt table. They've got fanart from pretty much everything you can think of.
[ profile] fandom_puffs - If you liked [ profile] potterpuffs, you'll love this. Puffs from all sorts of fandoms. She even takes requests. And I got this icon from there. ^_^
[ profile] gay_fanart - Just what the name says. A gay fanart comm, headed by the irreplaceable [ profile] theonemonaghan, who draws lovely Domlijah. Be warned - not everything in there is clean.
[ profile] jackwill - Again, just what the name says. A Jack/Will community. This also has some...not good stuff in it.
[ profile] lost_challenge - Remember I mentioned this one a few posts back? Well, I've caught up to where they are now.
[ profile] potc_100icons - A Pirates icon challenge comm. Though there have been no icons posted as yet, it looks interesting.
[ profile] potc_art - Pirates art of all kinds. I just typoed "kinds" as "knids". VERMICIOUS KNIDS!
[ profile] turrowton - What's the only thing hotter than Jack/Will? Jack/Will/James! Actually, that's debatable, but still. It's hot. Also has some not < PG-13 rated stuff in it.

And if you're looking for the tongue twister, it's in the subject line.
vethica: (Default)
I did some stuff this weekend but I waited too long so now I don't remember it too well so I can't talk about it. x_x And I friended [ profile] abc_icons because I wanted to feel like I had more friends. And because it's a cool community. I had friended [ profile] 10variations, but I had to unfriend it becuase all the posts were clogging my friendslist and the big pictures were murder on my dial-up. Still a good comm though.

Everyone was going off on me today at school because I drew a Gaara/Lee picture. Shad and Raven hated the thought of Gaara with anyone else, O.A. just can't imagine Lee with anybody (except me, apparently), and I'm not sure why Maddog didn't like it, but she didn't. Then there were the homophobes who were just "EWW BOYS KISSING." To quote HG, stupid homophobes. I dunno why everyone hates the ship. It's so dang cute! I think I've found a new OTP. (Yes, I'm aware that that makes three OTPs. Shut up.)

Relatedly, I think I need a Naruto guy. I mean, Shad has Gaara, Raven has Sasuke and Gaara, Maddog has Kakashi, Freeglader has Sasori, Rekka has Orochimaru, and O.A. has that Kimimario guy. (She used to have Kabuto, but Rekka made her give him up so she could kill him. Everyone seems to hate the poor helmet-head for some reason.) But I've never really felt strongly about any of them. O.A. thinks I like Lee, but I'm just not sure. He's adorable and all, but I don't know if he's the type of guy I want to spend the rest of my life with. Maybe I should listen to Rekka and define my parameters, but it really depends on the guy, dunnit.

In happier news, we got a printer. And I was in fact able to watch "Reality Trip", albeit a rerun. Most of it was pretty good, but dude, dei ex machinis are not your friend. Well, off to study some more. Or not.
