Naruto Shippuden Episode 135-136
THE START OF THE SASUKE/ITACHI FIGHT
please don't disappoint me, anime
( Maybe I'll be healed by the miraculous powers of Hideo Ishikawa's voice alone! )
I do feel better! Now to go do that app. \o/
I have this thing I like to call a fandom timer. Basically, every thirteen or fourteen months, I suddenly get sucked into a new fandom. I'd been thinking this year I'd skipped it, because I still love Naruto and even made it through my Code Geass rampage (which btw I still need to finish R2 ^^;;) without switching fandoms. However, I'm starting to get concerned about how much PokeSpe has sucked me in.
I'm concerned that Pokemon might be my new year-long fandom.
Yeah, that would probably be a bad thing.
In real news, I have become utterly addicted to Pokemon Special, and I'd like to share a picspam of fail with you! 8D
( LJ-CUT! I CHOOSE YOU! )
More picspams as I get farther into the manga! I HOPE LANCE SHOWS UP AGAIN AT SOME POINT ;_;
( THE HOLY SHIT QUOTIENT HAS BROKEN THE SOUND BARRIER, GUYS! )
Analysis of this chapter in more real depth comes tomorrow. I'm too jacked up right now. WITH AWESOME.
EDIT: YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS DESERVES DANCING TEAM HAWK!
And I can finally accomplish other things with my life--*passes out*
I tried to put it in my writing journal to save you guys the trouble of leaving LJ, but it was too large (which shouldn't be right but the HTML was going wacky because the Rich Text box is a bitch and is weird about copypastaing things from MS Word 2007 *shrug*). Sorry. So the fake cut below links to the story on my FF.net account.
Rating: OH GOD SO VERY M. And as a real warning, as in I'm dead serious, this fanfiction may contain triggering material.

[20:22] AcediaTheory: CERTAINLY!
[20:22] dishonor4honor: because I went to sleep thinking about my sasuke tag
[20:22] dishonor4honor: and i had reread sasuke and karin's last log
[20:22] dishonor4honor: and i guess i was thinking about disney buying out marvel
[20:22] dishonor4honor: because my dream was
[20:22] dishonor4honor: DISNEY BUYS OUT NARUTO
[20:22] dishonor4honor: AND MAKES A SASUKARIN MOVIE
( IN WHICH KARIN IS VELMA AND SUIGETSU FIRES HIS LAZORS )
Speculation is now closed until Friday's confirmations/negations/indifference to this insanity.
( Sasuke/Karin. I know, what the frig. )
Write 10 different categories of fic, in as few words as possible.
Ganked from redbrunja, this meme has been going around my flist, and I felt like writing tonight. I was all raring to write it to Itachi/Anko, but I changed my mind at the last minute to...
So I'm supposed to be writing several Creative Writing stories that I am way behind on, in addition to doing that term paper that is due A WEEK FROM TOMORROW, but I was instead thinking about frivolous things. So I felt like sharing.
( Ill-organized thinkythoughts on the Sannin and Sasuke )
I love it when people's words are thrown right back in their faces in that way. Love it. It's a trope that I adore.
( Tangent on tropes, Disney movies, and pseudo-father/son relationships )
And....wow. Okay. Nothing...much more to talk about here. I'm...going to go do some work or something. *sidles out*
They premiered a new one-hour special just now, entitled "iDate a Bad Boy." And I enjoyed it...until the primary conflict surfaced, namely that Carly's newfound "bad boy" (who wasn't even all that bad) collected "Pee-Wee Plushies" (or something equivalent to Beanie Babies).
And that was a BAD THING.
None of his characterization changed, just he was suddenly undesirable because he did something that was UnManly. He was still as hot (the main thing that made him desirable in the first place), still as artistic, his dialogue was still as amusing...but Carly could no longer stand him because he collected cute things. She even bought him a power drill, and reacted with disgust when he said he'd use it to make display shelves for his collection of cute things. This was played for laughs. And when he confronted her after overhearing her make fun of him behind his back, and asked her to give him a straight answer about breaking up, she zoned out imagining his cuddle buddies (or whatever they were) talking around his head. He had to say, "You know what, this isn't working," and walk out, because it was obvious she wasn't respecting him. He looked upset. And it was presented as the desirable end to the conflict. She didn't even care.
I, I don't know why I care so much, but that made me so very upset. Carly's usually a good, sympathetic character. I don't even know why they would present such an awful message like this.
Just perpetuate the double standard, Nickelodeon. Go right ahead.
(P.S. SPENCER WAS ALSO AMAZINGLY AWESOME. I only wish some of his best scenes ever weren't wasted on this upsetting special.)
Name a character from any of my fandoms, and I'll tell you every pairing I've ever written them in, read them in, or even just thought about.
Ganked from bellzooks.
I love crack pairings a lot, so don't be surprised with some of the things I come up with. (
