Okay, so, IJ has been down for a while, so this post now has 80% less chit-chat and 120% more important stuff that the public needs to know.( THEREFORE, SHEIK. )
There was also this terrible idea involving Sanga and Mudkips
that should never have seen the light of day, but is made ever more hilarious that I named my trainer/rival in Pokemon Sapphire Hiru and Sanga respectively, and that Rival!Sanga owns a Mudkip. :(
Things found while trying not to think about the fact that IJ is down:
"Adam Baldwin speculated in the Firefly
Official Companion Vol. 2 that Joss was trying to create Ho Yay
subtext between Simon and Jayne, and it probably would have been more thoroughly explored if the show hadn't been abruptly cancelled
."(Also, because I can and because you know it to be true:
"Berserk, in both the manga and the anime adaptation. Oh my god, I don't even know where to begin with this one. Griffith's penchant for declaiming long, soulful speeches to Guts while completely naked for no real reason is probably a good place to start. Or just relies on the phrase, "Naked water fight.""
AND THIS JDSFGKSDHF HAKFJHD DSHKSDHF I CANNOT EVEN EXPRESS HOW TRUE THIS IS:
"Amazingly, you'll find this in Ocarina of Time, not with Link and Sheik like most people assume, but with Link and the Poe Collector. Seriously, read his lines sometime. Somebody seriously wants to bone Link.")
Although, that may just be a law of Hyrule: Everyone Wants to Bone Link. (Combine this with Sheik's Milkshake and my OTP is unstoppable, Y/Y.)
I am appalled that it took until week seven for Interactive Writing to even mention
The Legend of Zelda, by the way. APPALLED. (And of all the bosses to screenshot, Truna screenshots Barinade. WTF. I mean, sure, I shrieked out its name from the back of the room like the OOT freak I am, but she could at least have screenshotted something awesome
like Ganondorf. Or Volvagia. Or Gohma. ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN BARINADE. Although admittedly, anything is also less terrifying than Barinade, Bongo-Bongo aside, which was probably the point, since we were discussing bosses at the time, and I will admit that Barinade is an excellent boss.)
For the record, dialogue is a bitch. At least Malus is cooperative. ...in, you know, a Malus kind of way. *hopes Sanga doesn't kill the kid
before he can have a passionate love affair with Auberon
No, really. Dialogue is a bitch. ...actually, exercises focusing purely on technique are a bitch, because writing about generic people is hard and I don't need another universe, kthxCraig, so I've gotta work with what I have, and most of the conversations that my characters tend towards having are a) ridiculous, b) wayyyyy too complicated to interpret out-of-context, or c) about getting into each other's pants. ...which I guess speaks for 80% of conversations, anyway, but some inanity couldn't hurt, guys, srsly.
I could sleep for weeks
. I think, when I go to dad's to babysit on Saturday, that I will go to bed at the same time as the kids do. |D; I'm so tired I can hardly type straight any more, and it continues all the way through the day. Not good at all. I have a katakana test in the morning, and with any luck I won't write things backward out of sheer exhaustion. Stupid sleep patterns. *shakes fist*
I'm pretty sure I would buy a Wii for this
. :3 What an interesting concept!
I had a dream last night that Luke bought me an Asus EeePC for $220 because he knows the chick who manages the HN across the road. XD It was black and thin and shiny and I was very excited, so it's sort of disappointing to wake up and have it gone. Luke would never do this, but still. Oh, fuck, that's what I'm doing on Sunday morning.
FUCK. Well, I'll just drop in on the way home from hanging out with Wyrren. I have not seen her or really spoken to her since Supanova and it is making me crazy.( HOLiC 155 has finally given us that scene we've all been waiting for. )
The exam was fine, though my stomach is being a total bitch today, and I had lunch with Rage because I thought food might help, which it did not. Still, stretching out to write this presentation can only make things better in a multitude of ways, so that is what I am going to do. I also managed to preorder both Crisis Core
and Apollo Justice
today, so I'm back to being excited about them both, despite my fury at the CC materia system. (Seriously, what the fuck is this FIRA MATERIA BULLSHIT, SQUARE, YOU HAD BETTER BE JOKING.)
In any case, since IJ is back up, more or less, have a small compilation of spam from the last two days and wish Squeaky luck in getting things back together; he was saying that he requires in the thousands to get everything sorted out, but given that there are already over one hundred thousand of us, I think we'll be able to provide. Right, guys?
