BANNER COURTESY OF glitterysuicide.

This journal is not friends only. I'm an open book, and thus all my entries (including the earlier, fic ones) are open to all. If you want to friend me, though, go ahead and comment on this post.

This will also serve as an all-purpose plotting/HMD/fic-request post. Go ahead!

I'm moving.

Yep. So long as LJ keeps screwing up, I might as well pack up my bags and move. I'll still be around, yeah, posting to the T&B community for random things as well as role-playing, but otherwise you can find me at DW like the rest of LJ. I'll be backing up my muses' accounts on there as well, just because.

So, LJ, if you're reading this? This song's for you. Thanks for ruining the holidays, you dumbasses.

I'm...currently on a Tiger and Bunny kick.

Not much of a surprise, really, considering that I've been somewhat interested in superheroes these days. I didn't quite expect the level I'd be obsessed with this anime, though, or the fact that I would be very tempted to make an account for one of the Heroes.

Doesn't help that the Maos are encouraging me, for once. I think it's so that they can have a new test subject, although if I do pick someone up from that series and they try anything on them I'll probably get Harry to approach their lab and see if something blows up.

...and it also doesn't help that I ship the protagonists like burning. sfsdadasfa TIGER/BUNNY: NEW OTP. It's the princess carries, I swear. And their chemistry. And the fact that Barnaby acts all tsun towards Kotetsu in the first half and deres it up in the second. I happen to find it endearing and rather cute, unlike some other fangirls.

Now if only I can stop waffling over Kotetsu and Barnaby...jeez Maos calm down you'll get your wishes yet.

Oh my god, how long has it been since I last posted in this thing? Just goes to show, I'm being swallowed up in role-play accounts. Again.

Anyway, since I last posted here, I've found myself a new fandom: Disgaea. No, seriously. I've even got myself three RP accounts, two of Mao from the third game and one of Laharl from the first. I've even started shipping crack pairings made up on a whim and have now called Etna/Laharl/Flonne my newest OT3, second only to Mao/Valvatorez/whoever else and tied with Valvatorez/Vulcanus/Fenrich. As you can tell, I have a thing for threesomes, and it's emerged in full bloom in this fandom.

But anyway, enough about shipping. I've already fallen head over heels in love with it. I mean, where else can you find explosions, tsundere noble demons, explosions, fragile fourth walls, explosions, references to various other series, explosions and did I mention explosions? And exploding penguin mascots of DOOOOM, too! I've started writing fics about it already, which is a sign that I've been bitten, and bad.

And I'm starting to crush on all the main protagonists. I think. Is putting one of them through all sorts of torture in some stray ideas of mine a crush?

...Enough about Disgaea, though. Onto my next topic: Toyota. Specifically, the Corolla ads featuring Miku.

I was, at worst, ambivalent about it at first, and actually sort of optimistic at best. I mean, look at it, that was one way to bring something as awesome as Miku to America and make her known to the general public, and not just hardcore American otakus who have no life whatsoever to speak of. I didn't really care about cars, but I am a fan of Miku--the fact that I have a whole playlist of videos featuring her and that I have quite a few RP accounts for quite a few versions of her can attest to that. I even liked the one with the mustache.

The problem hit, though, when I watched the latest two videos. All I can say is gdi Toyota what are you doing to Miku. I don't remember her ever having a thing for bacon-wrapped hotdogs (really?), and to paraphrase somebody on YouTube, virtual divas and hotdog mascots just do not mix. They. Just. Don't. GAH.

Okay, I'm done. I think. Sigh.

Do you remember your first crush? Did you ever tell that person about your feelings?

My first non-fictional crush (I had, and still have, a ton of crushes on fictional people) was...all the way in Grade 2. It's fuzzy now, but I do remember that we dated, or as much as kids in Grade 2 knew how to date. We broke up months after.

Also, there was one time in Grade 6 when I asked someone out. Not much, really, just asked him if he wanted a crepe and all. No one's letting me live that one down, and I believe they'll never stop bringing it up every so often. Like:

Mom: "Oh, hey, remember that time when you--"
Me: "Please shut up."

...I think I can classify this day as one of those days where I should've just stayed in bed, seeing as my Macbook (the one with, oh, my stories and all those really awesome icons that I've been saving in case I ever got a paid account) got water spilled on it by pure accident and now won't turn on, despite how much force I put into pressing the power button.

Obviously, I'm not happy about this development. Who wouldn't? That laptop has years' worth of memories, sentiments and stories squirreled away in its memory, and if I open it again to find that all of it's gone, I just might BSOD. Now that I've said that it probably will, won't it?

All in all: I hope I reach legal age soon, because I need something to drown my sorrows in besides ice cream and Vocaloid videos.

So, I have like a ton of icons on my computer. I know I have to clean them out someday, but I can't help myself. I just can't stop myself from collecting icons when I just know I won't find a use for them in a long time. Not only that, but apparently, when I go nuts and start snagging icons of people I'm sure I'll never roleplay (at least without a good canon review), it's a sure sign that I've fallen in love with the fandom, besides being a creepy stalker and stalking the tag on D_M.

Take Umineko, for example. I've just recently discovered it, and already the laptop's stuffed full of Battler and Beatrice icons. And let's not get started on the icons I have in storage of a bunch of Pokemon characters, as well as Miku, Rin, Sailor Moon/Usagi, Sailor Venus, Sailor Mars, Scott and Ramona. And Panty and Stocking, too. All in one little folder bursting to the seams with things that I've collected over the past few years.

I'm pretty sure some people do this as well. I'd hate to think I'm the only one in the world who does that, because really, it'd be depressing.

One day. One day I'm going to fix up my muselist and actually start being more active with my personal journal, as well as write more fics.

For now, I'm going to settle for role-playing late into the night. It's Friday, I can do what I want.

Just wrote a TVTropes page for Pokedressing here. As you can see, it's badly in need of examples and padding out, so come on! Let's expand our page on TVTropes, people.

Writing this in my personal journal because I am not about to spam the OOC Community.

So, it's done. My first roleplay ended.

To be honest, I dropped from the Elegante months ago. But it has a special place in my heart, since it was my first real game on LJ. And I couldn't have picked a better one.

It was a coincidence that I apped there, actually. I had just come fresh off of a rejection, and was just clicking on random spots in D_M when I saw it. I was curious, to say the least, and decided to app there.

Like I said, I couldn't have picked a better game. You guys made me feel like I was a part of the family, and I've always wondered about what would have happened if I hadn't dropped. There were bad times, of course, as no game is without them, but they pale in comparison to the good memories I have of the failboat.

Not only that, but the Elegante helped in shaping my style of role-playing. I'm still learning, of course, but I guess you could say it all started with a derpy angel, an awesome playerbase, and the most Crazy Awesome failboat to have ever set sail.

Rest in peace, failboat. I miss you, and thanks for all the fish.
