elementalhero: lelouch in a fancy hat with a monocle (i am not prince hamlet nor was meant to)
Once upon a time, two years ago, Gramma Random promised someone she'd write them a drabble in a Christmas drabble meme. Of course, Gramma Random is full of it, and never wrote it in time for the 2009 season, or even 2010's. However, this year, she finally completed it - except it isn't really a drabble, which is probably why the dang thing took so long.

Without further ado...

"The Night Lelouch Stole Christmas"

Now, the Brits in Britannia loved Christmas a lot... )

Have a great holiday!

God, if I could just pick up everyone on my flist and drop them into GX fandom, I'd do it in a heartbeat. This show, I swear to god, is just so much fun to be a fan of. It's not even that the plot is stellar (which it isn't), or that the characters are amazing (which THEY ARE); it's just that talking about the wacky plot and the fantastic characters is just. It's just so much fun.

Like, I spent about two hours last night rescreening a couple of episodes from my favorite part of season three, and just raving with one of my plurk/RP/GX fandom buddies about them. There were gifs and screams and squeals. It made me feel a lot better after previously having an emo rant earlier in the evening. I mean, first it was the fact that the voice-acting in the subs is about 117% better than in the dubs, and then it was O'Brien's legendary gaydar, and then it was speculation on the nature of the world-building in season three and beyond, and then it was endless screaming upon finding out that the dub had neglected to mention some of the more horror-inducingly awful deeds that Our Protagonist commits in this season, and then. I just. oh my god you guys. I want to share this fandom with everyone in the world ;~~~~~~~~~;

But I know not everything is everyone else's thing, too, you know? Like, I've tried to get into fandoms that others on my flist will spend posts and posts raving about, and just not been interested, even though I want to be. I know it goes both ways. But still. ;;

Have you guys ever had a fandom like that? Where it isn't very popular, or very well-regarded, but it just grabs you in some way, and you want everyone to know about it the way you do?

I have been speed-watching all the Star Driver that I have neglected to watch, because the SERIES FINALE is tomorrow and I am way behind! I've gotten up to Episode 21, and unfortunately I have to stop because I have to get up super super early tomorrow (urge to murder Bio prof: rising). I am now caught up to Episode 21, meaning I have three left to watch before 25, which I will probably try to watch tomorrow.

Well, that was the most disappointing spring break ever. No RL friends, no movies I wanted to see (until Limitless came in on Friday, but then I was busy with family and couldn't go /rage), and no downloading all those subbed episodes of GX because the site went down five days before I could get home to my limit-free wireless (/RAGE).

On the plus side, I got to walk my dog four miles every day. And before you think that's my sarcasm talking, no, I actually took her that far on purpose, just to get out of my house. D'|

also, I counted up my GX icons and they outnumber my Star Driver icons. OH FFFUUUU I WAS GONNA CATCH UP ON STAR DRIVER THIS WEEK AND I NEVER DID DAMMIT.

But the week was not without nice things, I suppose, as I did get a lot of sleep and I beat Pokemon White (*o*) and I made a new friend (Welcome to my flist, [livejournal.com profile] aphotic!), and I got a haircut. My hair needed it.

...rereading this and wow, my life is boring.

Okay, so at least Star Driver has some dignity as an anime. Yeah, sure, it's a Magical Girl anime disguised as a mecha anime where the mechas are run by the users' sex drives and the main character saves his rival from predatory lolis with the power of his intense gayness, but you can actually read shit into it and stuff. There is at least the pretense of some sort of faint dignity buried underneath the sparkles and rainbows.

Which, of course, apparently Cannot Happen to me.

Which appears to be why I have suddenly become a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh GX.

Not the original series, mind (not that I'm not a casual fan anyway). That would be too dignified. I mean GX.

explained by several Plurk excerpts which are unfortunately difficult to read )

And then I just said "hell with it" and began planning out how long it would take me to watch the entire series.

elementalhero: NO PANTS (ξcg | what)
Welp, 2 out of 6 pages done for my paper.

After it's done, I'm watching the Star Driver eps I missed, going to bed, and then hitting Kannagara up again tomorrow after my classes.

I never actually hiatused because I didn't expect school to blindside me with an effing eighteen-wheeler of OH SHIT I FORGOT I REALLY SHOULD BE DOING THIS THING THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE SOON, and now I am literally two weeks behind and I fell behind in the middle of a major, game-wide event, right after someone joined with two new castmates. I AM THE WORST ROLEPLAYER EVER AND I DON'T DESERVE ALL THE LOVELY PEOPLE IN IT ;;

I don't even know how to explain wth Lulu's been doing, my choices are:
1. backdate a metric fuckton of shit and constantly have outdated threads running forever
2. handwave something vague and frustrating to my castmates
3. backlog him getting killed off
4. do nothing and cry in a corner
5. put the finishing touches on Ax's app and hope no one notices Lelouch's timeline plot holes during the ensuing squeefest with the Animorphs CR. MISDIRECTION FOR THE WIN.

hrrrrrrrrrrrgh social rules, I fail at them even on the internet.

edit: as of 1:45 am, I have 2 and a half pages down, the only reason being that my uterus is attempting to strangle me to death and I am in severe pain that precludes having any sort of attention span.

edit: 1:50 am. curled up on bed in whimpering huddle. debating struggling to three pages and then writing other three during Astronomy, which I do not actually have to attend tomorrow

fuck I really hate being a woman sometimes

that's just the terrible truth

Not talking about my story. I don't want to look at it for the next forty-eight hours.

Instead, manga updates!

I can't win )

And gdit, reading TV Tropes last night made me want to play BG2 again, so I reinstalled my game, downloaded some fun mods and added them (or re-added them, in Soulafein's case), and proceeded to beat the first dungeon. (Forgot to install the mod that lets you skip it before I started my game! D'OH.) But I made it through and got all the loot and pwned everyone, so yeah. New character, because I am sick of male, evil, and thief PCs, which BG!Sasuke definitely is. I decided I wanted a kick-ass lady, so I rolled up a female undead hunter paladin! She's going to have a lesbian hurt-comfort romance with Aerie and then totally bang the irritating right out of Anomen (mostly because I am like DO ALL THE ROMANCE SCRIPTS and I didn't have the patience to roll up a new character for each one, so I downloaded a romance cheat that ignores race and gender and allows you to have more than one romance at once. :V Plus I wanted to romance Aerie for once, but I really wanted a PC with ladyparts for a change).

tl;dr ancient PC RPG derpery

I recently found this blog which is a speculation/spoilers/analysis blog on Star Driver. I feel like I need to go back and rewatch some of this because HOLY SHIT there are characters whose names I have yet to memorize; more importantly, OH MY GOD PHOENICIAN LETTERS AND SEMITIC LANGUAGES USED AS THE SYMBOLIC MOTIF IN THE NAMING OF THE MECHAS AND THE PEOPLE WHO PILOT THEM OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD.

/dorks off into eternity

So I didn't actually need to go to my Astronomy class today because my prof is away and he's not taking attendance and they were just showing a thing in the visualization lab. I was whacked hard in the middle of my Creative Writing class with fresh inspiration for my workshop story, so I decided to go down to the comp lab and write instead. It's rough, I know I'm going to change shit, but at least I broke the 500-word barrier.

However, the assignment that's actually due next week lies unstarted next to me, I have an academic paper due the 13th, and this story won't be due until mid-November.

So in a fun series of computer shenanigans and Windows RAR-related adventures, I managed to get my hands on all the Season One Code Geass sound dramas.

They were all really good (I like the dub actors, so what, sue me), but I think the prize has to go to Stage 12.55, "Ticket of Dreams," in which Shirley agonizes over asking Lelouch out with her concert tickets, going through a series of more and more unlikely Imagine Spots, culminating in the absolute terror of Lelouch being engaged to marry every single member of the Student Council. I was in stitches; I had to muffle my laughter with my pillow because otherwise the entire floor would have thought I was crazy. (They probably do anyway e__e)

...I was going to use my Shirley/Lelouch icon for this entry but then I realized it was too heartbreaking. ;;;;;;;;;;;

I got four hours of sleep last night! 8D Sleeping with four slices of Pizza Hut on my stomach = not the best idea that has ever jumped into my head :/a But I don't regret it, as making a late night pizza date with my bffl was the only thing that kept me sane through a Saturday overtime shift. That and the thought of double-time pay. Sob.

Said bffl also gave me her old Sapphire cartridge! I CAN NOW PLAY A GEN III GAME FOR THE FIRST TIME AND EXPERIENCE THE PLOT OF THE GAMES THAT INSPIRED MY FAVORITE POKESPE ARC. Also, Ruby and Sapphire are OTP even in chibisprite form eeeeeeeeee~ :3 Also my Zigzagoon is named Crackoon and that alone proves I am a derp. (Plus it has the ability Pickup which for all intents and purposes literally makes him my crack mule.)

I accidentally left my Pokewalker in my shorts and it went through the wash and now it doesn't work and I am really sad about it. ;~~~~;

SO HI GUYS. I have been away forever due to hanging out with RL friends and playing the shit out of SoulSilver, so let's have some small updates.

Naruto chapter: I feel like I am letting my flist down by actually kind of enjoying this chapter and not having foaming rage. :/

probably because I ran out of digital tequila two chapters ago )

now I know why they call it Soul Silver! because it consumes your soul )

And also, have that Final Boss Meme that has been traversing my flist.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (Kingdom Hearts [Aqua])
I was going to review the Naruto chapter, but that's going to have to happen tomorrow, as LJ is acting strange for me and not letting me get at my flist, and I don't feel like actually going to google and retrieving the link the hard way. |D


cut for derpery )

I'll probably do daily game updates as we go? Or at least regular game updates. I'm grinding to face Falkner right now :|b
