"Go look at your blog journal. Find the last fandom-related thing you posted. The characters in that post are now your teammates in the Zombie Apocalypse. How fucked are you?"

... by chance, my last fandom post was lamenting the terrible series I had recently subjected myself to.  So I've got Byakuran, Xanxus, and Tsuna from KHR; and Viral from Gurren Lagann.  As I said in the post, the pig has more agency than Viral, but this leaves me in a pretty good position for the zombie apocalyse, assuming Byakuran/Xanxus do not just feed me to the zombies on a whim, which could happen.

I gave blood today!  Unlike jokersama[info - personal]manticoresome people. :p


It is Day 3 After the Flood (you know the one) and my... thingy... the Red Cross measured was 14.3—whatever this was, my impression was that the cut-off was 12, and when my reaction was \O/ the Red Cross person was like "yeah, I guess you just have really high blood iron" and I was like "uh...."  (The last time I tried to donate was during the latter stage of my period, and it was 11.5 or something infuriating like that, but in any case I am thinking this theory is not correct.)  But actually I haven't eating been lots of leafy greens or red meat lately and I've been drinking (mostly green) tea like it's water, so, who knows?  (Though I had some sausage and de-leaved mustard greens with pasta this morning... last night was a "need to cook before all the stuff in my fridge rots" kind of night.)  So afterwards I had oatmeal raisin cookies and cranberry cocktail and water, and then I went to work.  Uh, I worry a little about work, because we handle the blood of HIV patients there (although I haven't personally done so?), and I will be personally handling the blood of primates infected with SIV (or SHIV?) so I wonder if I will be voiding my eligibility to donate by continuing on in HIV labs? ^^;;;



I may follow this up with a lame unboxing post!  Depends on when the sucker gets named, I guess. :D

For some reason my dad had a 4gb nano, so he gave it to me.  I received it with mixed feelings, since I hate iTunes, but I've since discovered that I can use it with winamp, so all is well with the universe. :D

Spent a few hours culling from 44gb of music, though I still have some space left, which is good, surely.  There's quite a lot of utena music on it, but very little final fantasy—too hard to figure out what is what (whereas utena merely has 8 albums to sort through! :D;;;)

I had a weird moment when I reacquainted myself with mitsumune shinkichi - hana no nai bara, but when I relistened to kajiura yuki, emily bindiger - aura they didn't seem so similar in retrospect?

Also, I was talking to sub_divided about mgmt - kids earlier, and I said I thought it was about environmentalism.  It was mostly due to the chorus

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting to be haunted

and not so much the verses.  Also, "kids" in the sense of "think of the children! and how we must preserve the environment for their future!"

This was kind of an off-the-cuff impression though, and not something I've actually reasoned out. XD  subdee thinks it's giving the band too much credit to be singing about a cause, but I don't consider it very much credit at all?  I guess I just kind of associate indie-style bands with college students, who are usually kind of casually liberal.  It blew my mind that some music blogger interpreted arcade fire - my body is a cage as a tract on how people have been corrupted by the superficialities of the world today and how they should embrace spirituality and God and reject the evils of gay marriage.  Or something along those lines. o.O

(... if arcade fire actually were <left blank as an exercise for the reader>, that would be, er, even more disturbing.)

Bonus: sara lov [arcade fire] - my body is a cage

Oh, so I saw the wrens and amazing baby last night; amazing baby (who I'd at least heard of before) were pretty meh, but the wrens were better, and the company was excellent. ♥

So, supplanter, your LiveJournal reveals...



You are... 16% unique (blame, for example, your interest in 空�承太郎) and 2% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy slash). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is intellectual.

Your overall weirdness is: 91

Ok, so on reading Issola I was shipping Vlad/Lady Teldra probably by the time she called him her friend and he was caught off-gaurd by it, but then in the homestretch THAT THING happened and I was like ARGH.  And then the next thing happened, which kind of made up for it, but let me tell you I am very pleased the next book is a direct sequel rather than spiraling off somewhere else in the timeline, which I suppose means we'll be seeing Cawti again, sigh.  I admit, I liked Cawti when she was kind of the female version of Vlad, but then she became ForGreatSocialJustice!Cawti or something and their marriage fell apart and I have been feeling kind of put-out by that, and also because I imagine she has been keeping a major secret from Vlad and I dunno how I feel about that, but it is probably also put-out and perhaps a touch scornful. :|

</random>

(That is, worldserpent isn't online for me to babble at right now, so a context-free blog-grenade will have to do.)

EDIT (there may be a lot of these; I'm sure you're riveted): SO MUCH PAYOFF and I'm still in the prologue.  Hm.  Structure may come up and bite me in the ass, or something.

EDIT: I find the world-building pretty amazingly consistent—I mean, there is a bit of ret-conning, but it all holds together.  The only actual inconsistency I think I've seen is that, early on (in Jhereg?) Kiera refers to the Right Hand of the Jhereg as naturally as to the Left Hand of the Jhereg, but then in some later book (though possibly earlier in the timeline) Vlad implies or even states outright that "Right Hand" isn't as established a nickname as its counterpart.  But by Dzur it's back to common use.  I find that a little curious, unless I misinterpreted Vlad somehow on that second point.

The anime continues to be kind of boring, in instrumentation and pacing and I guess general direction-y terms (even the eyecatch drains a little bit of my will to live, every time I see it), but I'm watching because I have run out of the manga and I wanted to pick up on the gaps, having missed Gau's entire intro and his and Raikou's climactic moment.  And I see so much fanart of them on /cm/, so one can't help but try to find why they have so much appeal.  I'm on ep11 now.

Well, fanboy!Gau is very gay for Raikou... also very annoying.  Raikou is also not that interesting; his personal tragedy and reasoning for keeping Raimei in the dark is even more off the wall than Itachi's, and he's a much more selfish and less useful person than Itachi, it seems.  I'd like to know where abandoning your kid sister for 5 years equals "take care of her now that your uncle has killed your parents", or why he didn't tell her the truth to start with.  I'm sure it's so much worse to believe that your now-dead uncle was a murderous bastard; it's so much better to believe your one surviving relative is the murderous bastard instead!  He doesn't even have the excuse Itachi did, in wanting to preserve the honor of their clan in Raimei's eyes, because the crazy uncle != actually everyone is in a conspiracy to overthrow the village.  I am kind of suspicious, like maybe it actually took him 5 years to think up this excuse which is why he left it for so long.  In any case, where does he get off calling her naive and stubborn for not wanting to hear what he has to say about it when he's left it for so long?  Not, it seems, that he was going to tell her anyway.  He seemed to want her to forgive him on the strength of his telling her she's a dumbass. >.>

I'm glad Miharu spoke up to Thobari-sensei in ep10; it's good that they all know where they stand.  The anime certainly reinforces the miharu/yoite love.  I guess I like Aizawa and Raimei and some of the other Fuuma ninjas (not leader-san, though).  Otherwise, I can take or leave most of the rest of the cast.  I do wonder if I might like Gau and Raikou more in the manga?  I am doubtful, since manga!Thobari still manages to piss me off.

(I dunno how much the anime deviates; I'm assuming not too much, at least not yet, but who knows.  Loveless deviated quite a bit, and even if there's more nabari manga out now than loveless manga at the time, it's all still wip... also, nabari seems to be going for twice as many episodes, at least.  Dunno if they're gonna wrap it up or try to be faithful....)

I dunno if kamatani yuki is that much better a writer than kishimoto, but at least she's more consistent and non-reliant on powerups and the story has a lot more direction.  I like the bits of humor in the manga, too.  Speaking of, I feel like the anime has excised most of the parts where Miharu literally kicks ass, even if drawing on the Shinrabanshou, in favor of his "little devil" guilt-trips.  This is very annoying.

I do want to say that everyone's strategy to find a way to do whatever it is they want with the hijutsu (ie. gathering up all the forbidden scrolls and researching for a solution) is kind of lulzy, all your eggs in one basket.  If you collect them all, it will come!

Ok, I'll admit it.  Now that bleach is no longer focused on ichigo's powerups, I've really enjoyed the last couple of chapters and am probably not going to be too annoyed at the outcomes of the fights.  320 had a nice bit of fanservice for ginkira, and charlotte coolhorn is, as expected, really traumatizing.  Who knew szayel aporro grantz was just a warmup?  yumichika, I salute you.

I have more bleach recs! :D

You may as well go on and read everything by frozen shattered roses (whatever warning bells the username has set off, ignore them).  I first read inferno, which is about zaraki and his bankai and caused me to look up all the other fics.  The epic is after the fairy tale ends, which is a more serious (but still humorous) story than most of the others.  She does an interesting first person pov.  (inferno cries out for fanart, btw, but if the author's received any she hasn't linked them.)

I also rec vathara, who you might know from any number of other fandoms, because this is crossover central, here.  It's a very aggressive process, which, admittedly, may leave one confused about what is unfamiliar canon and what is original worldbuilding.  I actually first encountered this author through ygo xovers as much as 4 years ago.  As far as bleach goes, so far there is project tatterdemalion (not an xover, just a scifi au), and lone flower and petals in the wind, which are bleach-btvs.

EDIT: er, actually I was hoping someone could help me find a fic.  I haven't actually read it so I can't say anything about its quality; I read the summary (just yesterday?!?!) but can't find it again.  It's probably on ffn, no idea on its length, status, or genres, but basically both ichigo's parents die (together?  In a car accident or something?) when he's rather young, so he (and the twins?) are raised by Urahara.  And that's all I know.

EDIT2: fic being sought is actually a "forthcoming" project someone wrote a summary for on their ffn profile, so am not going crazy.  Great.  Good to know.

And by the way, I don't appreciate all the red herrings on the vasto lorde-class arrancars.  Back in c197 Hitsugaya said that if Aizen had more than 10 vasto lorde-class arrancars, they were all fucked.  We then cut to Aizen telling Ulquiorra to show his 20 brothers his nifty eyeball trick.  But Grimmjow isn't even vasto lord, and if he wasn't just shooting his mouth off regarding Ulquiorra not fighting him because it would be too costly even if he won, I kind of doubt Ulquiorra is, either.  Especially since Ulquiorra rates Ichigo's top power level higher than his own.  (Of course, Ulquiorra's considering Ichigo's released state, which he fared decently against in his own un-released state, so maybe not.)  Of course, it's the prerogative of the shounen manga hero to be more powerful than anyone else, so, siiiiiiigh, whatever.

Anyway, what was with Aizen throwing the number 20 out there?  It seemed so awkward (as far as dialogue goes, even in japanese? I mean, couldn't kubotite just illustrate a large number of shadowy profiles that the reader can count for themselves?) and he must be cooking up new arrancar all the time (or maybe not, if Luppi is the only Espada-class convert he acquired in all this time—and how convenient for him to be ranked 6th just when there happens to be an opening!  Srsly).  Consider, there are 10 espada.  Then Barragan has at least 4 capable fraccions (and did he send out another 4 to die initially?), Halibel has 3, Stark has Lilinette, Grimmjow "had" 5 cronies, Nnoitra had Tesla.  I'd assume that all of these guys should be at least adjuchas-class, because the gillians are fairly pathetic, but I don't feel like most of the fraccions should be newly-made, so already this is way more than 20.  And shouldn't there be some unaffiliated numeros?  Then there's the timing.  Does time pass quicker in Las Noches than the real world?  Nel was made with the Hyougoku, right?  So how long has she been out of commission, not years (c292), surely?

It's so evident that Aizen does not, cannot have 10 vasto lorde arrancars, much less 20, that it's just become really irritating.  It's like tenipuri.  We already know the home team will win, so you can't fuck up the execution.  Except kubotite's fucking it up left and right. >.>

It feels like kubotite's buying himself some time for the ulquiorra/ichigo showdown, but the only fight I'm interested in of the four is yumichika's, hurhur.  Too bad he'll probably have to resort to his bankai; he'll be hated by his division!  Weo.

In other news, I wish hunterxhunter would resume soon, even if togashi's kind of lost the plot as well.  I think he does it better.  I miss hisoka and his creepy pedophile ways, too. D:  (What is up with japan and freaky pierrot types, anyway?  Is yakitate's Pierrot at all a parody of hisoka?)

Anyway, I'm caught up on nearly everything... 'cept for reborn, I guess.  But I need something new to read (yet again....)  'Cause I don't really feel like reading ippo or the second half of kenshin right now.  I think I might actually be in the mood for shoujo as well. orz

EDIT: Do I need to be reading One Piece now?  Is there any other path left to me? ._.

The Big ReadSome entirely random person thinks the average adult has only read six of the top 100 books they've"World Book Day Top 100 Books As Voted on by Popular Survey of 2000 Visitors To the World Book Day Website", printed below.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read/read part of but never finished.
3) Underline the books you LOVEpretty much enjoyed.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them (but you know, maybe not these books, srsly).

Extra rule: strike out the ones you disliked. >.> Read more...Collapse )

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

petronia gave me C, which was kind of a hard letter.  I was beginning to think it was underrepresented in song titles, but in the end I had ~310 C songs out of 6599 (not including the vast majority of the final fantasy or kingdom hearts music) so I guess not!  But I still think things picked up after I hit kylie minogue.

1. caramell - caramelldansen [speedycake remix]
hurhurhur... >.> <.< >.>

2. koda kumi [maekawa yoko] - cutie honey
I feel a certain obligation to put this up.  Karaoke tiem! :DDD

3. kylie minogue - come into my world [fever version]
I actually like the album version more than the fischerspooner remix; it's warmer.  This won out of "chocolate", "can't get you out of my head", and two other artists' covers of "confide in me" (I haven't heard the original....)

4. snow patrol [beyonce] - crazy in love
Not actually the only snow patrol song I have, but the only one that really registers. ^^;

5. röyksopp - circuit breaker
Good for exercising one's range... if you start two octaves up, even better! 8D

No one said to post your favorite songs starting with the letter you got—though considering what got the first two slots, I doubt anyone trusts my song selection anyway. XD;;  Well, ppl have probably already been tagged by petronia or jokersama, but if anyone wants to play~ ♥

... well, I thought it was really good? XD  I didn't realize it was the Wachowski Bros till way after, but I liked it way more than the matrix.  And it's not like I have nostalgia to draw on, because I don't remember any of the episodes I've seen, and only sort of remembered the theme song (which isn't so easy to forget, in any case. >.>)  Basically, I mean I'm looking forward to whatever karose and hane come up with. ^^;;

My laptop has a bad drive, so it's getting replaced, and then I have to reinstall everything. >.>  At least it's pretty much all backed up already, except for my current session of opera and some anime I wasn't *too* attached to yet.  Well, I think if I pop it in an enclosure I'll be able to access it long enough to grab those series (moyashimon, zetsubou-sensei, that one harem series yachinami actually liked, and probably some others I can't remember).

One time I won't disable auto-format, sigh.

Ganked from youkofujima.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
I opened my "audio" directory, sorted by type, selected all, individually deselected the 294 playlist files at the end and the two folders in the beginning, dropped them all into winamp, hit S, and let it rip. Without including ~6Gb of unsorted songs, this left me with 5284 entries on the list.

Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Well, I'm not too embarrassed by any of this, but deciding when something started was a bit hard. Sometimes there's rap, or talking, and I might not properly consider it the beginning of the song, or I might arbitrarity decide it is. I also arbitrarily decided when some lines ended. Oh well. AND some songs are unintelligible and ungoogleable. I left them in line, but tossed on extra songs at the end to make up for them.

Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.

Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly. Whoever gets it first gets their name next to it.

Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

SO.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT ASSBABIES.

SEMI-DIVINE ASSBABIES.

... just so we're clear.

A couple months back I randomly hit a patch where I felt like reading some hercules: the legendary journeys slash-fic and found myself at the ksa archive (although I have not watched the show in forever; preferred xena: warrior princess when I had been watching; and wasn't familiar with half of the male cast, as in couldn't actually recall ever seeing them or anything—look, it happens, I never knew more of wk than fan-translations of the first two manga volumes (chapters?) and I only ever picture-read rk (mostly in korean!) and it was the longest time before I saw/read any actual yyh—LOOK, DON'T GIVE ME ANY LIP, Y'HEAR?) but eventually I ran into a certain fic by thamiris (bless her).  It's called immortal with a kiss (er, should I not direct-link? or are we past the statute of limitations? :\) and I've probably given it away but OVARY-PUNCH!spoilers here....Collapse )


....

For some reason, I feel this distraction has not really been successful. ._.

(... yes, I am picking out songs after-the-fact, but I am listening to these songs at actual time of postage, so.)

This is this movie I saw in Taiwan this spring!  Well, I started watching in the middle of the final cook-off.  There were proper English subtitles on it, so I didn't have to rely on my mandarin-fu, which is weak.  I should hunt it down now that I'm taking Chinese class and going to Chinese Conversation Corner and shit; it was pretty awesome. 8D

... huh.  When R was here last semester, he somehow found out about "pissing" shrimp (after we'd bought a specimen of some other crustacean whose name I've long forgotten (both species name and the name we gave him; it might have been George, but for some reason I think it began with a B) for the gumbo we were going to make) and a long evening was spent researching the little buggers.  Mantis shrimp are pretty badass, if neither mantis nor shrimp.

So I was regaling tongari with the wonders of ikkitousen (prompted by a post on koutetsu sangokushi which I am too weak of heart to attempt) and she was, I think quite against her will, intrigued by my descriptions of some of the characters. orz orz orz

Even though I started ikkitousen before ravages, ravages is how I see them by default, so.

I nearly had a heart attack when I realized who 'Hakufu' was. orzCollapse )

Moving on to non-allied characters...Collapse )

Speak of Cao Cao, and he will appear... shortly.Collapse )

Finally, Shu, but not much of it.Collapse )

None of this should in any way be considered an exhortation to read ikkitousen.  Just... no.  BUT, y'all should be reading Ravages of Time!  When the scanlations run out and you're inevitably desperate for moar, go here for raws and here for scripts!  ESPECIALLY READ THIS IF YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING KOUTETSU SANGOKUSHI.  IT WILL EASE YOUR PAIN.  (I'll just assume I'm the only freak here that's been reading ikkitousen. orz)

So, in the middletowards the end of my recent 26-hour period of wakefulness, I had a revelation.  Jolyne's belt buckle on the cover of SO17, Jo280 (which I pay particular attention to as the sole source image of the specific outfit I want to cosplay), is not a stylized snail, as (I) previously assumed.  Rather, it is a 6 on its side.

orz orz orz

Sometimes Jo2 makes me feel incredibly stupid.  I ameliorate the blows to my ego by telling myself that IT IS JOJO THAT'S STUPID, DAMN IT.

Also, I finally know what Jump Remix is, since I saw what looked to be the last Jump Remix for part 5 (probably for Jo2 overall, considering the regard SO gets) in a conbini.  My RA was like "oh, Jo2 is a legendary series, did you know?"  I was like "AHA.  THIS IS A THING I AM KNOWING.知っている! ^___________________^"

ok, actually now that I'm more lucid I have my doubts about the 6 again, BUT ONE MUST TAKE A STAND SOMEWHERE.

Peace!

Tried the media center's scanner today; huge bed, quite easy to use.  I didn't want to spend much time messing with contrast and stuff, so I just upped the brightness by 10 for everything I scanned today.  I might go back and try again later, but I have lots of things I need to do today, and I already wasted enough time (and money) on the goddamn bank earlier, so this is just for fun and because I haven't posted for a while, yet again.  Oh hey, first post of the year.  Took me long enough. orz

This is the first time I've seen the update page in a while.  Nothing too scarring has happened to it, by my standards, I guess.

Anyway, richestgrave has just been winning all over the place.  Delicious shinsena, mysteriously scarce in efandom, and then koutarouakaba in the good way—I know their canon, I think it's great, but it almost makes it too easy, which leads to kind of boring fanproduct.  Not like this, in any case.  This I like, obviously.

So y'all should be reading es21 ka.  And of course you all should be reading jojo.  Incidently, finally managed to complete an item of fanwork for that, huzzah.

this is too color-coordinated D:Collapse )

So I need to learn how to use my graphics program.  Also, I need to either hunt up more photoshoots or just find some Playboy.  I mean, if it's good enough for the mantrain, etc. orz

As a final note, I ♥ rasputina. :D

Oh, Mr. Romberg
I have taken 14 of your classes
I carved your name into my hand
Romberg
R-o-m-b-e-r-g
You look very frightened
In a handsome way, I , I wanna say
I love
you
Mr. Romberg

This could be Koichi and Yukako!  Except it isn't.  So close, but so far!  But if Jotaro ever had to TA while he was getting his degrees, I'm sure he would have gotten one of these in his fangirl horde.


ETA: I think I'm mentally impaired when it comes to receiving compliments.  In my head, it processes as my thinking the compliment isn't due, but it comes out as my not acknowledging that I was given a compliment and kind of glossing past it. >.>  Does this count as a verbal tic?

Ganked from sesame_seed: Vaguely implySummarize 10 of your fandoms in one sentence each, then see who on your friends' list can guess each fandom.

1.    no good can come of having this name, but your nickname is a tad demeaning.

2.    no good can come of having this name, but how to trade it in when that ass never tells you a thing?

3.    no good can come of having this name, but trading it in may cause the universe to implode.

4.    main character's name befits that of a trap.

5.    parents exhibit hive mind in naming their kids.

6.    playing with balls in the flower-strewn springtime of youth.

7.    playing with balls more than opposing teams in the short run.

8.    playing with balls is fine too, but step aerobics is not so fun: MOAR ELEVATORS.

9.    playing with balls is HORRIBLE; go play more with your sword—less work involved.

10.  YOU MUST PAY A HIGH PRICE FOR THE WATERMELON.

>.> <.< >.>

These are kind of cheap, but at the same time some of them are fairly obvious if you know the fandom... maybe? ^^;;;


CRAPPYCRAPPY HINTS: These are all animanga/game fandoms; no books or western shows.  As referenced, 8-10 are specifically non-manga, though they may have manga.  1-7 are all manga, though they may have anime.  I have read/watched/played a large chunk of all of these as available in the indicated format, so no mgs or kh2.  Tenipuri is not on the list, think I'll clear that up right now. XD;;;

MORE HINTS HERE. orz

(Retroactively screening guesses.)

Spent way to much time last night hunting down muse - supermassive black hole vs. britney spears - do something mashups (okay, first it was the muse vs. pussycat dolls - don't cha mashup).  After a not-so-brief detour into radiohead-vs.-muse-wank!land which I struggled mightily to extricate myself from, I found this charming whinge.  Funny how no one's popped up to defend the virtue of marilyn manson - mobscene.  It sounds like the mashups to me, anyway; if it doesn't actually sound like the two original songs I'll have to blame my ears going numb from listening to them repetitively.  Not that you heard me say that.

Ohgod, the team facing down the Taiyou Sphinx (chapters 200+) is dinosaur-themed.  I didn't really give a shit about Banba and his primadonna quarterback Harao the first time around, so on asking the question "Who would Dio cheer for?" I know who I'm rooting for!

Doburoku-sensei, you fool.

(That's the classic WRYYYYYYYYYYYY pose, too.  Ah, it's so beautiful!)


EDIT: Okay, Harao is kind of woobie.  He's going the Sakuraba track now, I guess, but eh.  DIONOSAURS! :DDDDD

So I had this wacky dream last night/this morning.  I was reading this long, good, smutty naruto/itachi fic.  Um, it was good in terms of the quality of the pron, not for characterization or plot or anything (or so was my assumption in the dream).  Naruto had wings or something.  Sakura came in somewhere early on, but was well out of it at the point that sticks in my mind.  For some reason I kept dithering about the actual reading of the fic/pron, and getting distracted in the dream, which is totally something that happens to me in real life.  Also, I think it was supposedly written by ashoka or rageprufrock or someone else on my dream!flist whose name begins with p that is probably not petronia, but then at some point my dream decided it was actually written by some guy in a band, possibly. uh. Fred Durst.  Dreams are weird you know. >.>

(Also, it was a kind of intermitent sleep so of course in the moments I was actually awake but not really in the real world I thought I'd be able to scroll down my flist and pull up the fic to read, but oh well.)

On the whole, bizarre, but kind of useless, no?  I'm not even interested in writing Naruto fic, and if I were, it wouldn't be winged!naruto naruto fic.  (I wonder if this is really a sort of subgenre; either I'm giving naruto fandom too much credit or too little, who knows.)

Note: IT IS REALLY WINDY TODAY, ON TOP OF OUR LITTLE MOUNTAIN.  I HAVE TO BRAVE THE OUTSIDE IN A COUPLE OF HOURS.  IT'S A GOOD THING I DON'T HAVE A HAIRSTYLE, IS ALL I'M SAYIN'.

Home again!  Backlog, yay!  Updated my interests and userpics—does anyone know of a cheapfree little user-friendly program I can make animated gifs in, btw?  I dunno what I made my default icon with, but whatever it was I have it no longer.

Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" can be so right, btw, but the line about the hat?  BLASPHEMY. :OOO
