Hi f-list, have we met? orz I really need to get back to like. Updating every now and then. Eh-heh.

Been pondering doing those daily memes that people have been doing. At the very least it would keep me connected and such. If only I didn't suck at answering them, sob.

fontech: (asch-OH THE DRAMA)
I have a question for the TotA doujinshi collectors on my friends list :|

So uh. Ever since it was released on [ profile] rejectlogic, I've been totally itching to get my hands on the Last Distance series by Irohabako. You know, this pretty series here. FINALLY I found it on Yahoo!Japan - the first two books, anyway. I've sent a request to Celga to purchase them and a few anthologies, all from the same seller. Due to the batch sale, they're giving me a discount on the middleman fee. ALL SEEMS WELL.

And just today, I found the full released set of four on sale, ending a day after my other auctions. And I'm like jkhsfsjdhfjdss fuuuuuuuck.

So here are my options, dear friends. Do I:

a) follow through with my current auctions, and hope to track down the other two books at a later date. This... errrrrrm. Considering how long it's taken me to find the first two? >_>;

b) cancel the current auction (no bids have been placed right now) and switch my auction choice to the set of four. I don't desperately need the anthologies, so this would save money in the end, though it's nice to have a batch of doujin to make EMS shipping to me worthwhile. The downside is there's no guarantee I'll win the second auction, so I could end up losing out on all of them. This would unfortunately mean either cancelling the anthology auctions as well, or paying double shipping, double bank fees, and probably the full Celga fee as well.

c) order everything and sell the extra Last Distance books. There's no guarantee they would sell, but I've been thinking of letting go of some of my TotA doujin (particularly my bigass Guy/Luke collection) so I could add the first two Last Distance books to the roster. Sadly this means, again, double bank and shipping fees in Japan. I could keep the Celga discount though.

I am so freaking exhausted you have no idea nnngh.

Ahaha so you know all those questions you guys asked on my last entry? I'M STILL WRITING SHIT FOR THEM. God I suck. My motivation has been complete fail lately; I've barely done anything but lounge around and RP, and even that's something I've been completely bombing. I have a growing list of backtags and I keep staring at them and going "....derp, can't touch this" and flopping somewhere. Or playing a game, that's helped me somewhat. I started playing SO1 a few weeks ago, and I've been really enjoying it. Would've played more at the cottage this weekend, but my PSP charger decided to completely die on me, so I was screwed until I got home to my backup. Stupid USB cable. Also have been playing Abyss again; Nebilim completely slaughtered my party on Unknown mode. Stupid bitch B| Looks like I have some leveling up to do.

Probably gonna be dropping from RS soon. Which makes me feel like a complete ass for joining, introing, and then completely failing to get into things, because I hate hate hate when people do that in Luceti. But it's occurred to me that I really can't stretch myself too thin right now. It was fine in the summer when I had nothing but free time to kill, but now that classes have started, I'll have fewer hours in the day to devote to my hobbies. I'm already behind on everything else, including mod duties, and I know RS will always be getting the back burner. Honestly I'm lucky I haven't been able to get things started at [ profile] damned yet, or I'd be completely burned out already. And I'm on day 2 of classes. The profs are not making this semester look good at all.

Guh. Guys why am I so pathetic ;_;

On the flip side, this means I'll be bringing him back to Luceti during the next app cycle. Honestly? I think half the problem is not recognizing many people, or the characters they play. In Luceti, the characters are way more familiar, Zack had a very developed CR, and even if I reset him, he'd easily slip back into his little social niche. I just see a whole not more potential for me staying active there, if only because I'd just have one f-list to check, RP-wise.

This also means I have some thinking to do. ...Crikey, as if I don't have enough going on already. 8|

OH AND DID I MENTION I HAVE BRONCHITIS AND IT FUCKING SUCKS. I will never take regular breathing for granted ever again.

lol so now that I've wasted your time with my bitching, I must get to class. Hopefully I'll have some better news later on.

Some memes I've seen circulating:

1) Meme time! Ask me to blog about any topic and I'll include it in my next entry.


2) Ask me anything RP-related. What my character feels about yours, what makes a particular character fun, my top five RP vices, why I picked a particular username, anything. I will answer to the best of my ability.


Maybe it's because the month of events at [ profile] luceti have been distracting me, or I'm too used to the simplicity of how the other RP works, or I am just really, really stupid or something, but... [ profile] realityshifted has me extremely confused ~_~; For some reason it's not clicking with me, and it's why it's taking so long to app. fff I feel dumb just admitting that, sob ;_; clearly I'm too used to my own niche.

Could one of you RS players on my f-list like... message me when you have some free time so I can ask questions? I think if it's explained by a player in simpler terms I'd understand.


Speaking of RPs, I was accepted into [ profile] damned /o/ It is a daunting prospect, but I'm genuinely excited. And the app really wasn't as horrifying as it initially seemed to be. I got permission to use [ profile] mirrorbirth as the main account, but to avoid mixing Luceti stuff with Damned stuff, I'm probably going to make myself a musebox and use it for RP info dumping. Still working out the details of it. I just really wanted to keep my icon set, derp.

I've been re-reading a lot of old threads at Luceti lately. I wonder if it's unhealthy to love an RP so much. :x But I can't be the only one.


So today I went shopping with my sister; hurray for spending money you don't have! /o/ Well, alright, that's not entirely accurate, but I probably should be more careful with my monies. I got Star Ocean 1 & 2 from Gamestop using a gift card, so I'll be trying those out sometime in the future. I'd been meaning to play them for a while but have been waiting for the price to go down (or for them to be used). Picked up some new jeans and shirts (which I needed BADLY, my clothes are in such rough shape) among other things. They were a bit long but I felt so snazzy to be in new clothes. Now I just need to replace my ratty shoes and I'll feel just like a high schooler ready for September |D

I guess Gamestop has some promotion deal going on, because I got free Axe samples with my games. My sister and I lol'd about that for a while; maybe they assumed I had a boyfriend to pass the stuff on to. The shampoo kinda smells nice, so I may try it, but the body wash is kind of weird and I never use hair gel. Still pretty funny, though.

Earlier this evening my mom called and said a family friend had a job for me: three days a week, 12 hours a day, for three weeks, wiring sound systems in schools before September. Sounds interesting, so I have to call him later. I'd have done it after I finished with mom, but I had one awful headache ~_~

...I have run out of things to say 8| /fails at ending entries
fontech: (atla - that's rough buddy)
Icon meme )

And for another:

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudocanon.

.....I actually don't have anything else to say. >_>; except that I'M HOME ALONE FOR THE NEXT THREE AND A HALF WEEKS 8D

I feel like a teenager again, d'awww.

/boycotts RPing for the rest of the night

Ahhhh I'm so happy these days for some reason. Despite being jobless. What the fuck is wrong with me, I need money. Someone kick my ass back to reality sometime soon, okay?

Stealing an RP meme from Eggy.

I have too many characters. )
fontech: (ed - sheepish blush)
So many memes these days o.o I was gonna do the 30 days of whatever/22 days of music buuuut. I don't update every day, lol. So I'll probably work on them bit by bit and upload them in chunks or something.

For now, a picture meme. Use any variety of pictures that are already on your hard drive to answer the criteria. They can be drawings, photographs, screen caps, anything you want.

Infinite Undiscovery - AKA pimping That One Artist who draws art for it )

Ahhhhh goddammit I need a job, getting stressed fffff WHY IS THE SUMMER SO GODDAMN SHORT

Guess what time it is, kids?

Eclipse is out, and it's time to snark once again! /o/

This time around, it's a little different. I decided to try an experiment:

1) Watch the new Airbender movie
2) Watch Eclipse immediately after
3) Decide whether or not watching utter shit beforehand makes Twilight good.

Results? Well, aside from the following tl;dr snarkfest, I... uh... sort of? It wasn't good, but it wasn't as godawful as... well.


So basically Airbender is what it took for me to lower my standards. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-

Let's start with The Last Airfilmer Shamalama Will Ever Make )


the most wretched hive of scum and villainy )

Haaaa that was bad. All of it, but especially Airbender, sob. I had to watch a few episodes of the Avatar animation to purify myself ;_; wryyyyy Shamalama. Why you do this. You know what was a better summary of the first season? EMBER FUCKING ISLAND PLAYERS. Hell yeah.

Related to that- I finished the actual series itself on Monday, and good god was it ever wonderful.

Happier blatherings about )

I was gonna do a meme but this entry is already too tl;dr, so maybe later. D|
fontech: (tidus vs jaws)
I feel like I'll be lynched for saying this, but so far I think season 3 is shit. >_>;

Thank god for Sokka and his redeeming awesome.

blah blah blah tidal wave )

I'm sure it'll get better - I'm expecting some seriously epic stuff from Iroh, considering the leading up they're working on bit by bit. Guh. He and Zuko are so fantastic. The two of them plus Sokka are probably my favourite characters- they never cease to be epic win. And episode 6 felt like they were getting right back on track (and it was a pretty awesome episode overall anyway). So here's hoping.

Also jskfhjdsfhsf the episode with Sokka's master, holy fuck. They need to show him in more fight scenes, seriously. Bending is cool and all, but nothing makes me flail harder than a badass swordfight. He needs more opportunities to be the badass instead of just comic relief all the time.

Where is Suki ;_;

I came home from the cottage to find RACISM threw up all over my friendslist!

As an absurdly priveleged Canadian who is as white as they come, I have absolutely nothing to say about the issue because I'll probably end up with foot-in-mouth. ...And also because I don't want to. |D I've seen some fascinating and bizarre arguments for and against it, though. It's a damn shame that the movie wound up so badly received, because over the course of the last couple of weeks (and this weekend, especially) I've been marathoning the animated series and I am in awe at how good it is. Crikey, why did I not watch this sooner? The potential for awesomeness in a movie was so great. Really is a damn shame.

Randomly I thought I would dislike Zuko, but I've been loving on him this past season. I think the little lisp in his voice made any attempt to be menacing just... not. lol. I'll probably be starting on season 3 once I get all the shit in my head sorted properly.

Speaking of which.

Akai's Deep Thought )


Seriously I am so goddamn tired of the sun B|

In other other news, thanks to Loupe's influence I started playing Sims 2, something I have never played. I spent most of the past evening boggling and laughing at Edward's attempts to woo Sigmund by talking about make-up, dresses, and high-heeled shoes. Even more hilarious is that it actually worked.

And then Sigmund tried to get laid and Edward said no fffff. Crackheads, the lot of them. (Except Sigmund convinced him five minutes later, ohoho.)

I now understand the appeal :| the ridiculousness of it is somewhat addictive.

I'm somewhat determined to make IU skins for it, if only because Loupe managed to put together this... nngh. I squee every time he gets his shirt off.

This is about as much of an apology that's ever going to happen. If you would like to take it at face value and leave it at that, because I am not open to discussing or altering what follows, then here it is: I am somewhat sorry.

However. )

I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who supported us, agreed with us, or attempted to cheer us up. I'm really grateful, and any support at all was fairly unexpected (which is sad, but what can I say). For me, it worked, and I am much happier and content with how things stand, as well as what this may or may not cause in the long run. This is pretty much just a follow-up PSA. And since it's my journal - you know, the one that I pay for? - Yeah.

tl;dr much.
fontech: (jin question)
Friends with laptops!

Give me recommendations |D Brands, types, sizes, blah blah blah. Tell me what you use, what you'd want, what works best, and why. I DEMAND IT OF YOU.

.....But no Macs allowed. :|

Back from the cottage! /o/ Aside from a few little disasters (the boat didn't start at first, I got a sunburn and a bazillion bug bites, there was a traffic jam D|) it was a nice, relaxing weekend. I slept for most of it; it was pretty sweet.

It occurred to me that I've never really posted good photos of the cottage and its area, so here it is: Akai's massive picspam! These photos are all of the island my family's cottage is on in Georgian Bay, Ontario.

I like to call this IRL Luceti )

That wasn't actually as long as I thought it would be, lol. If anybody wants something explained, idk, just ask? /didn't feel like tl;dring about the obvious

Oh man I have so much to catch up on.

Marbles did it and I was bored.

▮ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
▮ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
▮ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

image is kinda big. )

Also, for those who were interested: Asch's Character Survey of Doom. Didn't really want to flood the comm with more ooc stuff so I just tossed it with the rest of his tl;dr. >_>; Still working on everything else. This stuff seriously takes forever.

Man, end of May is always so busy. Cottage this weekend, Anime North the next. And I still need a job, bleh ;_;

Guys what video games are you playing these days, I need something to waste time with besides Pokemon grinding D|

fontech: (asch's great disguise)
Welp. Got myself a Dreamwidth account, forever and a day after everyone else did, lol. I honestly have no idea what (if anything) I'll do with it, but hey, it's nice to have it, since if LJ ever explodes or outrages everyone, there's somewhere else to go.

I've been doing a lot of character analysis lately ._.; Currently as WIPs I have:

-the huge character surveys for Edward, Asch, and Zack
-a full-sized application for Asch and Zack (not for a game; more of a character sheet using the Luceti app style); doing this because the apps I wrote to get them in originally are shit
-an analysis/detailing of Asch's abilities OC app for John (JUST SO I CAN GET MY FACTS STRAIGHT OKAY)

On top of some mod stuff I have on the go, like map editing and more fussing with the Nitpicker's Guide (which I sort of forgot about lol)... whew, RP is keeping me busy. (Speaking of busy I have tags to do, oi) It's a nice sort of busy, though, as opposed to drowning in schoolwork. I think it'll be a nice summer. Better once I get a job (though more boring), but hey, a money flow is always good.

Oh, and in case anyone was curious I passed all my courses and got an overall of 85%, so I'm cool where school is concerned.


I kept thinking I ought to post something with substance but I have jack-all to say. Awesome.

ANIME NORTH IN TWO WEEKS (almost). Cottage in one /o/ Looking forward to opening that bitch up and getting some nice R&R. I'll have to take some RP-related stuff with me (or at the very least a bunch of paper for writing) so I can do the usual "hide in the woods and write" thing. That worked well last year.
fontech: (zack/cloud - they don't do this ever)

Hola, I haven't posted here in ages. I suck.

I finished exams last week and I think I did okay with them |D Time shall tell, however. Still looking for a co-op job, but I can't do much more about that than just... like... apply for shit. THOUGH YOU KNOW WHAT I am so annoyed at the posters, it'd be nice if they, you know, STATED THE LOCATION OF THE CO-OPS? I'm tired of Googling the company name and getting shit for results. I can't work in Toronto or Brampton or Guelph, gaiz :c

Otherwise, suddenly I find myself with far too much free time. Luckily there's plenty that could keep me occupied at the mo...

Anyway, meme. DOIN' IT 'CAUSE I'M COOL LIKE THAT also everyone else is doing it

meme thing )
fontech: (simon- commander fabulous)
Guh. Yesterday could've gone better. Crappy week is crappy.

In regards to my last post, Akela was my brother's old husky; we got him when he was 2, then when my brother moved out he went to live on a husky breeding farm, where my brother visited him often. He was there when Akela died, and he died quietly in his sleep at age 13. For me, it's sort of like losing a relative you haven't seen for a long time, so I'm okay. I just wanted some sort of memorial for him, I guess. Anyway.

In a fit of boredom between studying I watched the Gurren Lagann Movie, and FFFFFF. They didn't change much during the Kamina half (which was expected), but afterwards? DAMN. Nia wasn't... really that annoying for me. It was like the Twilight Zone, I actually kind of liked her in it. Kind of. Probably because the whole part where the Gurren Brigade turned into her fangirls was bypassed in favour of a really sweet, somewhat altered scene with her, Simon, and Yoko, right before the big attack. And Simon was supremely badass (he tried to take on Cytomander IN THE AIR WITHOUT LAGANN, seriously Simon those are some balls), and the Yoko/Adiane fight was as fanservicey as I expected but fff it was also badass enough for me to not care. At all. Apparently the secret to Yoko's power is to take her tits out. Go fig.

Pretty much the whole finale was glorious and I want to watch it again. Nnf. I think Kamina would've been very proud of the Dai-Gurren Shoot. |Db Will be downloading that later.

Little critique: Simon's rise to glory wasn't as good for me, but that's one of my favourite bits in the entire series, so I wasn't expecting it to top that. And they totally could've done more with Kamina. Gdit.

And now a cut in which I tl;dr about Pokemon )

and now an old RP meme )
