Storm's a-brewin' so this is gonna be quick, but I finally got around to watching Descendants 2. Um, that Mal/Evie song. Am I not supposed to take that as a total 'ship thing? Because uh...

Seriously.

Also, the Mal/Jay little friendship moments thrown in here and there were fantastic and made me happy. I should really get off my ass and read the other books, huh?

Welp, storm's here so I'm gonna go and spare you all... for now.

Monday, Monday, so good to me. That's what the song says, anyway. What have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Today's question: Do you post any of your writing anonymously? (Goodness knows I do.)

40 Day Anime Meme - Day 12

12 -- what is your favorite romance anime?

Wow, this is one of those questions where I'm stumped when it comes to anime, but I'll have trouble narrowing it down in regards to manga if I end up doing the meme again with the subject swapped.

So...

Actual Anime With A Lot of Romance In It Even If It Isn't A 'Romance' Anime - Vandread. Which isn't terribly romantic at all, but does have a lot of developing/established romantic subplots worth rooting for/enjoying. ^_^

Terrible Anime Based On Good Romance Manga - Alice in the Country of Hearts. The anime isn't worth watching, but the manga/games its based on are enjoyable and filled with gorgeous boys and it's fun to watch Alice's interactions with all of them (especially her love interest in each path). But the animated movie version just isn't worth it. Or only worth it if you're already a fan.

I do have some BL series like Gakuen Heaven, Sukisyo, etc. but I don't think I could list those as 'favorites'. I like Gakuen Heaven but think the main couple's romance is boring. ^^;;

Oh SDCC roundup time

Jul. 24th, 2017 12:05 pm
impy: (minako: freakout good)
[personal profile] impy
Let's talk about toys, shall we?

So. SDCC was a thing that happened, eh? And new shiny things appeared and I am going to need a cheat sheet because fandom is so scattered for me at the moment that I've got nothin'. I miss a more concentrated fandom but I don't really care enough to seek out wherever they've gone to hang out so instead I'll sit here and blather.

Because there are pictures, we shall cut. )

In non-SDCC doll news, AG seems to have pushed their Create Your Own line back due to either not wanting people to be able to use their 20% off coupons OR not being able to hire people who can update a website without borking everything all to hell. Or both, really. I'd say it doesn't really do much to me only apparently I have birthday money and could have, in theory, used it most unwisely. You snooze, you loose, AG. Also, I really wanted to play with however they'd have the site set up for making your own. I had plans, company, and you borked them. Woe.

Ohgod. Their commercial is... I have no words. You'd think they would have found a way to make their dollmaker thing better than it was, what, five years ago? But no. And this time there's more than $200 riding on how accurate it is each time. Oh, AG. OH.


Oh. I really did have plans but Mums seems to have said no, nope, not doing the plans she set into motion. Bets on whether the boy drops by to give me my gift?

Less fluffy

[personal profile] impy
Dear caffeine, please hit my system soon so I'm less cranky and whiny and basically less of a brat. Or, if that's not possible, could I at least not realize how much of a brat I am? I could be blissfully unaware and that could be fun, too.

Let's see. This is going to basically jump around as my interest comes in waves and also I'm in a mood.

The less fluffy stuff first, I suppose.
Cousin stuff. )

Went out yesterday with Ari & D. We hit the mall and stopped at the foodcourt so she could eat and we chatted and it was nice and weird all at the same time, as all things with Ari will probably be until the end of forever. I think I caught her on a not so great day (not bad, just not... great?) but I don't know for sure. I hadn't seen her in forever for a variety of reasons (namely, I'm 92% sure her uncle, who had a stroke sometime within the last year, moved in with them and things have been extra chaotic and also I am very good at flaking on things but so are they) so I did not flake this time. She put her head on my shoulder at lunch which was nice because hey, sweet and also weird because pre-Incident Ari wouldn't have done so unless she was dead tired or hiding from something in a scary movie. But a new normal is to be expected, so you roll with it and as far as things go, it's a nice change.

Wandered around FYE while D did an exchange and I debated buying all kinds of useless stuff I don't need but decided to save my money in case we hit another store with more interesting useless stuff for cheaper. We did not, so I didn't spend my money. Huzzah.

Then we went back to their house and basically watched movies. Watched You've Got Mail which I know I watched way back when and fucking hated but I don't remember if Ari and I watched it together or if it was one where we both saw it, but not together. In any case, I figured I might as well give it another shot. Sometimes you change enough to appreciate movies you previously disliked.

NOPE. I'd forgotten it opened with them blatantly emotionally cheating on their SOs and basically coasting on, "hey, you liked Sleepless in Seattle, right?" to gloss over that. Sigh. On the plus side, at least D was just as outraged by the ending as I was when I first saw it. FINALLY. I swear, when it first came out people would get really upset if you said you didn't like it, especially if you were at all computer friendly. "B-but you should love this movie!" No. I shouldn't. Because it is AWFUL. So vindication at last!
And I blather because why not. )

That went and got long. Not sure if I feel better having vented or if the caffeine finally kicked in but I'll take it either way.

I think I'll put the fluffier stuff in its own post and leave this as just needing to ramble.

40 Day Anime Meme - Day 11

[personal profile] kalloway
11 -- what is your favorite drama anime?

This was a hard one, because most mecha anime qualifies as drama. While I don't know all the questions on this meme, I know there are a couple of mecha ones coming up. A lot of what I thought of that is very dramatic is also more romance or mecha or action or... whatever. So a straight-up 'first thought for this is drama' was really hard.

So here are two:

Planetes, which is a wonderful story about space-debris collectors. Both it and the manga made me cry so many times.

Starship Operators, about a warship of trainees basically financing their battles by being broadcast 24/7. As soon as anyone gets a name and any sort of subplot, expect them to die.

Both shows play space incredibly straight and while Planetes is the harder sci-fi, Starship Operators is the more brutal.

They are both very, very good.

Every time we talk about trapping our nipples in the fold out bit we focus on accordions and neglect the dangers of other bellows-based instruments and I. Have. Had. Enough.

Crossovering 2017

[personal profile] isabelquinn

Hello! Thank you so much for creating something for me – crossovers are one of my favourite things to read and write, this is one of my favourite exchanges, and I am very excited to receive any of the combinations in my signup.

This crazy monolith letter is hopefully going to be helpful? The main thing to keep in mind is that these are just ideas and jumping-off points. The great thing about crossovers is that there are so many amazing ideas out there that would never occur to me in a million years. Don’t be restricted by what I’ve written here! If you think of something completely different, go for it! Or if you start with one of my prompts but end up somewhere you didn’t expect, that’s cool too! I hope you have fun writing! <3

I’ve split this letter into three sections:
General Likes/DNWs
Fandom-Specific Likes/DNWs
Crossover-Specific Prompts.

Thank you!
