Only fandom stuff is really public. My pseudo-essays, life updates, miscellaneous ramblings, a minority of my fandom-gushing, and the majority of memes (because those are usually tacked on to the end of unrelated posts) are still friends-only. You're not really missing anything, though.


SO APPARENTLY I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED THIS...SOMEHOW? I'm so, so sorry. If I could get backdating to work without glitching on me horribly I would definitely be doing that, but I can't, it hates me. It hates formatting. It hates everything. I'm sorry.

The dangers of manga and anime, illustrated.Collapse )

Also, here, since most of you probably don't care as much 8D:

Name a character from a series you know I like and I will tell you:

(a) three facts about them from my personal canon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is awesome
(d) five things that never happened to that character and/or
(e) five people that character never fell in love with and why

Comment with any relationship (romantic or platonic or crack incarnate) from a fandom that you know I have some knowledge about, and I will rant about aforementioned relationship. This may be incoherent gushing, rambling validation, or exclamations of disgust, depending on your ship of choice.

Not that I expect there to be a rush or anything, but one relationship at a time, please. This is so I can make sure to get around to it.

EXCEPTION BEING, for Transformers people, that the Constructors are freebies and you can ask about them along with whoever you might have wanted to ask about really. This is because I'm writing about how I think their particular team works within Decepticon society - and, really, defining Decepticon society for myself - but I keep sidetracking into in-depth discussions about their dynamics and, while I have fun doing it, it doesn't really help me get around to writing what I was intending to hash out in the first place. Help me get it out of my system, I beg of you.

(This meme is brought to you by Deep Thoughts Ricky Has Been Having Like Plague When She Tries To Go To Sleep At God-Awful-O'-Clock In The Morning and my attempt to spare you lot from having them show upon your f-list. Because I care.)

My hands and feet are very cold. At least the dog's warm, though. He's got the whole blanket tangled up around him and I can't even curl up because he's stolen my lap. Oh, puppy. If only your face wasn't so cute I could boot you off and reclaim what is rightfully mine with the power of thumbs and evolutionary favoritism.

Also: Apparently I have a Tumblr.


I have no idea how to feel about this yet, though the fact that it actually has a Rescue Bots mini-fandom over there is quite the bonus. APPARENTLY PEOPLE SHIP CHASE/BLADES? I don't quite see it, but you know you have a fandom when you have already have a generally accepted OTP.

In all likelihood, I will probably fill my Tumblr up with pictures of robots that I like and random quotes until I get bored and forget it exists. None of you are missing anything.

Side news: MEME because I have been remiss of my meme-spamming duties.

If you like, go to 31_days and pick a theme from anywhere, and give me a character or two to go along with it.

I WAS EXTREMELY TORN ABOUT WHAT I WANTED TO POST. Because I have, like, three things I want to do. The first was writing up a dream I had last night about a zombie apocalypse including vampires and chickens and solar batteries. The second was to start a 30 day meme (which I've been wanting to do forever but never found one I liked enough, also posting every day makes me feel all nervous and stuff). And the third was my reaction to the HUB's new-ish show Rescue Bots, which I never bothered to look into because it's for preschoolers and I thought I wouldn't be interested.

I was wrong.

So I'm going to be talking about that. Because I watched those two episodes they released back in 2011 and I have ~*~thoughts~*~. Zombie/Vampire Apocalypse will have to wait.


dawwwwwCollapse )

AND...I think that's it for now. Because I'm tired and I'm pretty sure I've mangled everything I wanted to say well enough already |D I'll probably look at this tomorrow and wonder what the heck I was thinking, but for now:

I like this show more than I thought possible. It's amazing. Also, I can't help but think of how it would feel to wake up to the knowledge that your planet is dead and all your colleagues and possibly friends were dead (which...okay, is really bad and depressing of me, but I keep imagining the Protectobots as one of those Rescue Squads that are now extinct and...yeah. Going to stop now), but that comment one of the 'bots made about how they weren't able to be there for their own planet so they're not going to let Earth go...if this were a darker show I'd be side-eyeing that statement so hard my head might actually spin.

And I wanted to see if this cross-posting to LJ thing actually worked for me. Crossed fingers!



...*stares at Cody*

...so who wants to bet they get a young 'bot showing up at some point who's too young to do emergency things yet but is obviously intended for emergency medicine when he "grows up" (because this IS a show for six-year-olds) and JUST SO HAPPENS to bond with Cody? Cody doesn't have his own robot yet. I demand this happen.

Okay, I lied. Here's another commentary. playswithworms asked me about it <3

Commentary in boldCollapse )

DVD Commentary "It's Good Enough"

I'm only doing this one like this because it's so long. The others will be done in comments.

I'm not kidding. It's huge.Collapse )

DVD Bandwagon Ahoy and NaNo

So, that DVD commentary thing. I'm not sure if there's anything anyone would be interested in hearing about, but hey. Pretty much everything is over at stepsandstones or at my ff.net account.

Leave a comment if you'd like with a fic you want commentary on and I will do my best.


November countdown!Collapse )
Hi! I'm back a day and a half ago. And poking my grubby fingers around otana 's journal and stealing all her valuables. Like this one:

Do any of you know where I might be able to find information about Icelandic history and culture? Websites, credible books, anything like that? No specific time period. I just need somewhere to start and wikipedia resources/my town's public library are failing me.
