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. ♥

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
vethica: (Default)
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:
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 [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)
I decided to try and come up with human names the ponies would have if they were humans and not ponies.

Twilight Sparkle: Twila Sparks (easy)
Rainbow Dash: Rain/Raine/Rainbow(? parents must have been hippies) Dashell
Pinkie Pie: Wilhelmina Diane Pine (still goes by Pinkie, because she has pink hair and likes pink and, I mean, Wilhelmina)
Applejack: Jacklyn (aka Jackie, Jack) Apple (Applebaum? Appleton? Applesomething?) Her siblings stay Macintosh and Bloom, of course.
I do not know about Rarity and Fluttershy, though in the latter's case I think her last name should be Cheyenne or something. Maybe she is part Albanian and her first name is Flutura. :|a (Thanks, behindthename!) Okay, maybe I just don't know about Rarity.

Oh, also I went to Connecticon this weekend. Quick con report maybe?

Quick con report maybe! (not actually that quick) (really long actually) )

...And, yeah, that was in fact really long actually, but that's about it. So yes. I had fun. :D And if there was anything I forgot I'll mention it in a later post.

Also I will skip the Digimon meme this post, sorry. This is never going to get posted otherwise. Next time, y'all.
vethica: (Default)
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:

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. ♥
vethica: (Default)
Well, this updating daily thing is working out so far. \o/

Recently ordered the Kim Possible soundtrack from Amazon as the result of a fandom secret. It came in today, so I've been listening to it. Not quite as nostalgic as I had hoped, but hey, I have the Naked Mole Rap on my computer now. That can't be a bad thing. Also it made me want to rewatch A Sitch in Time, which will always be the superior Kim Possible movie, if only for the adorableness that is babby!Monkey Fist. (And oh gosh they have it on YouTube. Looks like that'll be something to keep in mind for one of these upcoming summer days.)

Also tried to apply for a job today, got depressed by own inadequacies. Maybe tomorrow.

Day 05: Favourite crest. )

"Canada tops, but America can't see him. He just thinks there's a bear floating above him while he feels things in the butt." - [livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64

Since HG's been getting after me to post that quote up there, I guess I might as well make an actual post. So, sorry for up and disappearing for a week like that. Finals pretty much took over my life, which I gather is a thing that happens to a lot of people, but it is still something I should apologize for. But anyway, they are over now. Turned in the last one, in true me fashion, three minutes before the 11:55 due date. :B

So I've been home for a couple days. Haven't done too much except go to club, see Yuki, and play Pokémon TCG. I've finally built (with some help, of course ♥) a deck that actually has a strategy behind it and that I can actually win with. :O The only problem is there's never anyone on Lackey who plays, so if any of you guys are into the Pokémon TCG, let me know! I need new battle partners. :B

Also, I realize this should be common sense, but if you have a Mac, do not get the trackpad wet. Seriously. I got mine wet the other day and it spazzed out at me intermittently for like an hour. And if you do happen to get it wet, the option to disable it is under System Preferences > Universal Access, not System Preferences > Trackpad. :|

Better finish up that song meme.

DAY 22: A song that someone has sung to you. )

DAY 23: A song that you cannot stand to listen to. )

DAY 24: A song that you have danced to with your best friend. )

DAY 25: A song you could listen to all day without getting tired. )

Well, we can all see how well that worked at getting me to post every day. So now I will start another one~! Yeah, yeah, I know, but hopefully without school I'll actually be able to keep up with it this time. Besides, I need to convince [livejournal.com profile] birdboy2000 to do it. So here everyone, have a Digimon meme! :D

Day 01: How old were you when you first discovered Digimon? )
(List of days is here.)

Also, expect an AB con report to come... sometime. Whenever I can actually get myself to do anything. :(
vethica: (Default)
Wow, dang I missed a lot of days. I was planning on catching up on Thursday, but Anime Boston ate my entire weekend. Whoops. AB was pretty spectacular, though. I had a lot of fun. Will hopefully post a con report within the next couple weeks. :D Also Passover ends in a few hours and classes end in a few days so I am feeling pretty okay right now. Just have to get through these last couple homeworks and then finals. Yosh~

I also started watching Madoka today. Yes, finally. It is good so far, but would probably be better if I did not know so many spoilers. :( Still, I like it. The characters seem pretty cool and I love the art style and I want Madoka's house. Kyubey's voice is annoying though.

*deep breath*

DAY 09: A song that makes you hopeful. )

DAY 10: A song by your favorite band. )

DAY 11: A song on the soundtrack of your favorite movie. )

DAY 12: The last song you heard. )

DAY 13: A song that reminds you of a former friend. )

DAY 14: A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend. )

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! )

FEEL FREE TO ASK FOR CLARIFICATION OR WHATEVER


Also! If any of you guys have an OC that you want icons of, [livejournal.com 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
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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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
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: (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.
vethica: (awesome)
Flashing picture warning )

HEY GUYS

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN AS EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING AS THIS GUY IS ABOUT TAB

BECAUSE THAT IS HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT MS PAINT ADVENTURES (WHICH INCIDENTALLY HAS THE TAB GUY IN IT)

IT IS EPIC

yeah

Also I know Anime Boston was a month ago but chronological order is for chumps )

so

yeah

So I had a dream where Christopher Columbus and Sadako/Samara from The Ring were BFFs. I don't... I don't even know anymore. But then I had one about Rick Murray, so it was all good.

Didn't finish Genshiken in time for vacation to be over. I think I made a valiant effort, though. It's definitely the most episodes of one series I've seen under my own power. (Yes, I know how sad that is.) Also, continuing to make progress in Fire Emblem. I'm on chapter 12 and no one's died yet. ^_^ (Yes, that took entirely too many restarts.)

Pokémon fans on my flist: you might want to check out [livejournal.com profile] birdboy2000's recently completed fic, Love, War, and Pokemon Battles. And no, I'm not just reccing it because I'm biased. :P I've read the thing and it is epic and well-written and worldbuildy and long, and I don't think enough people will read it and that saddens me. So. Yes. Check it out maybe.

And, uh, Hetalia fans, you should watch SkadiPirate's videos. They are good and have good music.
vethica: (italy bff)
Things that have made me ridiculously happy in the past 24 (more or less) hours:
- Hetalia Day 2009 with my dork friends
- Seeing the Astro Boy movie immediately afterward with said dork friends
- Szayel's dub voice fffffff
- The answer to the New York Times acrostic (if you've done it you'll know why)

Also, I have been playing Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia a whole lot lately. (And I still have to actually pay Momo for it at some point. ._.;;) I really like this game. It's not a "true" Pokémon game, sure, but it's gotten me to care about the storyline and characters more than any other Pokémon game's done. And the writing is hilarious. If any Pokémon fans out there are looking for something to occupy themselves while waiting for HG/SS, you could really do a lot worse.
vethica: (Default)
Still don't have anything to post. I was going to craft a humorous writeup of our group's first D&D session a week ago, but then I remembered that I can't write. So the condensed version is, we had a cleric with no common sense (who ended up being the party's tank), a wizard who didn't know anything, a bard with terrible social skills (though at least she could find north), and a monk who didn't really do much of anything. And a DM who had to put up with our stupidity. Also we were fighting Missingno cultists. Which is kind of awesome.

Also, lol forever @ this question.

The rest of this entry is just going to be personality quizzes. )

Why do I not have a life.
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.

"In the Italian dub of Sailor Moon Sailor Stars, the Starlights' sex switching was not present. Instead the Sailor Starlights were said to be the twin sisters of the Three Lights. This explanation was added to the Italian dub after Vera Slepoj, a psychologist, claimed that Sailor Moon made young boys become homosexual."
(- WikiMoon)

WHAT. I don't even. If anything, you'd think they'd be straight for all those girls... Is this a Zoisite thing?

Also, apparently there is an actual attack called Star Gentle Uterus. Wow. Maybe I should be glad I never actually watched Sailor Moon.

In Pokémon news, if this were first-gen I'd've beat the game. As it is, 300 or so to go. (Maybe I should dig up my old Yellow and try it there? I bet it'd be a breeze in comparison.) Also got that second Trainer Card star, many thanks to Yuki.

Okay time for do homework now.
