makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (First word: Jail)
HI EVERYBODY HERE AT LIVEJOURNAL, HOW Y'ALL DOING.

Not going to spend a lot of time listing the new and improved methods of flaking out that I discovered during this most recent month, but needless to say yet again I am behind on KHR reviews, and this is mostly the fault of work, tumblr, and Skyward Sword (in that order). And to top it off I derped out on NaNoWriMo as well, though I did manage about 12,000 words of fic out of it, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Unfortunately the fic in question is long enough that it's still like maybe halfway done, if that. But I'm gonna try to get that finished in December anyway because I feel really weird not having posted at least one (non-crack) fic during this whole year. AND HEY WHAT DO YOU KNOW, THERE'S ONLY ONE MONTH LEFT OF SAID YEAR, WHAT IS EVEN UP WITH THAT ANYWAY.

But before that! I've been craving a good meme lately, but the thing about memes is that I keep derping out on them too. And I got to thinking that one of the main reasons for that is because when it comes to typical fandom memes, there are always parts of the meme that I LOVE, but also parts of the meme that FEEL LIKE HOMEWORK. Like for example, I will ramble on endlessly about my favorite characters, but with most fandoms I really do not have an OTP (because in a lot of fandoms I'm either PANSHIP...UAL, or I do have one or two favorite pairings but I'm not HARDCORE SHIP-IT-TILL-I-DIIEEEE enough to have any interesting insights or opinions regarding those ships), and I don't know enough about the online fandom to know what my unpopular opinion regarding the series is, and I don't remember enough about the canon to pick my favorite quote or top three scenes, etc.

So I was pondering all of this and then I thought WELL FUCK IT, THEN I'LL JUST MAKE UP MY OWN MEME. A MEME FILLED ONLY WITH QUESTIONS THAT I LIKE TO ANSWER! MANIACAL LAUGH, MANIACAL LAUGH.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS THAT MEME:

Comment with one of my favorite fandoms and I will tell you the following:

1. My favorite character.
2. ANOTHER favorite character!!
3. My favorite character relationship, and by "relationship" I don't necessarily mean pairing and certainly not OTP, but on the other hand, depending on the fandom MAYBE I DO!
4. The moment/character/THING/WHATEVER that first hooked me on the fandom.
5. One of my favorite moments.
6. A song or track that reminds me of this fandom.
7. One miscellaneous awesome thing about the fandom.
8. One completely random thought I have regarding this fandom.
9. One fic/essay rec, fanart, or fanvid that depending on the fandom I either had lovingly bookmarked or saved onto my hard drive, or only just now found during a two-minute Google search.


HMM, that seems like enough questions, I should probably just STOP NOW ALREADY. So anyways, please post some fandoms if you are so inclined and I will GET TO ANSWERING over the next few days or so. :)


P.S. Since I still did not get to the HS question on my last long-since-died-who-am-I-even-trying-to-kid-anymore meme, for this meme HOMESTUCK IS A GIVEN. Meaning YOU DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO ASK THAT, I am already typing out my Homestuck response to this meme as we speak, because lol THAT SHIT'S OVERDUE.

o/
makeste: (Science rules)
Or "listening to myself talk", more like. About fics, mostly, and what kind of things I most like to read and write. Pay me no mind.

Just a lot of babbling about angst and GAR and certain pairing combinations. )
makeste: (I am waiting for something to go wrong)
And another day of logging in and seeing this:



I have decided this is what I will be devoting my weekend to. I AM GOING TO DEMOLISH THAT NUMBER PIECE BY PIECE.

But in the meantime...

KHR 306, now with 50% more Naruto references! )

And happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] achiasa, [livejournal.com profile] masanami, and [livejournal.com profile] draconianangel! MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU. <3
makeste: (JOY JOY egao ga mitai kara)
It was awesome, even though it rained on the last day (we just packed up and headed to an indoor arcade to ride bumper cars and play laser tag instead). BUT ANYWAY, I AM BACK NOW, and in a post-ish mood. So have a post! With some memes and stuff.


1. Late as usual with this (though only a day late, which actually isn't that bad for me XD), but Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] windgoddess688!


2. Why oh whyyyy did I decide to finally catch up with the One Piece manga (I had stopped a few years ago shortly before the end of Thriller Bark, so I had a blast reading through the Impel Down and Marineford arcs) right when Oda is about to take a one-month break to prep for a timeskip? SOB SOB CRY. At least the timeskip in question sounds fucking awesome.


3. Meme! From [livejournal.com profile] smilypie:

Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

She gave me Avatar: The Last Airbender, Death Note, Durarara!!, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

So for once I won't be rambling about Gokudera in this entry! :O )


4. And since the previous meme put me in a character ranting mood, have one more, from [livejournal.com profile] aroundight:

Give me a character from any fandom I know at least fairly well, and I will tell you:

A) My OTP
B) The runner up
C) The anti-ship
D) My unpopular fannish opinion on said character
E) One person he/she never fell in love with, and why


I love this kind of meme. Possibly too much. XD


5. I swear I didn't forget about the other meme I was also in the progress of doing! I'll resume that tomorrow, promise. I JUST COULDN'T RESIST THESE. I'M SORRY.
makeste: (VICTOLY)
SPOILERS! IT'S THIS GUY!

NOW GUESS WHO'S TOTALLY THRILLED TO HEAR THIS NEWS.

SPOILERS! I AM.

:D

Anyway. Aside from that, I have some fanfic recs!

FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL ###-####, OR YOU COULD JUST CLICK THIS CUT. )

Memes!

Holy shit there's so many!!

From [livejournal.com profile] erisabesu:

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

She chose Stephen King, Hibari/zombie!Kusakabe, The Chronicles of Narnia, One Piece, NaruSasu, Theories, and Manga. )

And then [livejournal.com profile] cleartempest gave me KHR, Naruto, and Phoenix Wright for the three fandom meme that probably all of you are familiar with by this point. :P

Wait, all that rambling, and I'm still only a third of a way through this post? )

And [livejournal.com profile] cleartempest gave me this one too because I asked her because I am addicted to rambly memes:

Leave a comment saying, "I'M ON A HORSE" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

She gave me Radiohead, REBORN, black belt-ery, general geekery, and books you like, so I will type about those things.

Almost done now...! )

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST:

anon meme



Oh my god that took hours. XD Let me know if you want to do any of the memes. o/

ETA: OH WAIT I FORGOT TO WISH AN EXTREMELY BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] chuu AND A NOT-SO-BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] vaultedthewall. I APOLOGIZE FOR MY FAIL.

Idk guys.

ANON CRUSH MEME


I saw this popping up on my flist and was like, "SHINY."

And I am in a good mood because my sis got me a paid account for Christmas! (Thanks again for the coupon, [livejournal.com profile] thisiscyrene. ♥) ALL THESE PRETTY NEW FEATURES wheeeee. More icons and like A ZILLION NEW JOURNAL THEMES. I am going to change my theme like, every single week, guys. IT'S GOING TO BE SO OBNOXIOUS, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW. XD

Flist has also reminded me that I've gotten absolutely nothing done on my two [livejournal.com profile] khrfest fics as of yet. I really should get on that. XD I did manage to finally submit my [livejournal.com profile] khr_undercover guesses, though! I'm pretty sure they're all wrong! But the fun part will be seeing just how wrong they are. |D

Lastly, I did this meme just because.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In January I stole [livejournal.com profile] vazavati's purse (-30 points). Last Friday I punched [livejournal.com profile] theprerogative in the arm (-10 points). Last month I pulled over and changed [livejournal.com profile] valorously's flat tire (15 points). In November I ruled Iran as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). Last Monday I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points).

Overall, I've been nice (599 points). For Christmas I deserve a Lego set!

Sincerely,
makeste

Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:


Legos! Just the pick-me-up I needed after retiring from being a gang lord.
makeste: (Car wreck kids)
1. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] relaxsama AND ALSO [livejournal.com profile] o_melody_nelson! Damn, I am so on top of things. BUT I HOPE YOU GUYS HAD GOOD TIMES.


2. The fics for round 3 of [livejournal.com profile] khr_undercover have finally been posted! Mine is the one that is really, really obviously written by me. Seriously, it's the one where when you'll read it, you'll be like, "Could she really have made it this easy?" The answer is yes. XDD

Man, I'm excited to guess the rest, though. THIS TIME I'M TOTALLY DOING THAT GUESSING ROUND.


3. Okay, so for more than a while now I've been failing pretty epically at keeping up with my f-list in any capacity whatsoever. And I've been feeling bad about it for a long time, because I keep seeing things I want to respond to, fics and rants and memes and so forth, but I'm always either busy or distracted at the time, so I tell myself, "Okay, I'll come back and comment later." And predictably, I never do. FAAAAAAAILLLL. But I said that already, so yeah.

So, not that this will really make up for it, but here's an idea I had anyway: Comment to this post with a link to one of your posts, and I'll read and reply to it. It can be anything: fic, art, an essay, rant, review, meme, whatever. Think of this as sort of a feedback meme, I guess; you pimp something to me and I will comment on it.

Now, I'm not making any promises about the timeliness of my response, but I will get to everything eventually, even if it takes me a few days or God forbid, weeks (I say that because I know myself too well). XD Sooo, have at it.
makeste: (VICTOLY)
I DO, AS A MATTER OF FACT. |D I had a job interview today which went really well, much to my relief (particularly since I spent the entire week being stomachachingly, panic-attackingly nervous over it), and when I finally got home from that there was a nice new KHR chapter waiting for me. With more color pages. And various assorted epicness.

And also an absurd Japanese popularity poll. But other than that, it's all good. )
makeste: (I have just met you and I love you!)
I MUST CONTINUE TO PROCRASTINATE.

1. Welcome, [livejournal.com profile] draconianangel! ♥

2. As a general f-list note, I just want to apologize for being even flakier than usual at keeping up with other people's journals lately. I know I don't comment all that often (definitely not as often as I ought to), and I feel guilty. So, yeah... sorry. XD *fail*

3. In case I don't get to say it on the first (because who even knows), Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] tenchi_no_takai! (And [livejournal.com profile] rikasaurus, I'm totally gonna finish that Ryohei drabble soon. IT WILL BE FUN TO WRITE. |D)

4. Meme! Two memes, actually. Both snagged from [livejournal.com profile] part_b:

"Has my portrayal of a character(s) changed the way you think of him/her?"

and:

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you...

OTP:
Runner-up:
Honorable mention(s):
Crack pairing(s):
Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't:


LET'S DO THIS.
makeste: (I don't care what Jim says.)
Not going to bother with any more rambling about KHR 255, both because I think I've gushed enough, and because this recap at [livejournal.com profile] capslock_khr says it all, really.

Instead, I have a very relevant and important question to ask:

[Poll #1450641]

Since I have a feeling I will be needing one of these within the next few days. XD

And now I leave you all with one of the many good things to come from the latest chapter (and possibly the best thing): shark fight. Actually, I should be more specific: FLOATING shark fight. Awesome floating shark fight.

ETA: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS DONE. Thank you for your participation. ♥
makeste: (I have just met you and I love you!)
1. Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] kat8cha! MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS AND WISHES COME TRUE.


2. I feel like I am betraying my ignorance, but guys, what the hell is 6927 Fanday and why is it like the only thing on my flist today? XD I GET THAT IT'S THE 27TH DAY OF AUGUST, BUT 827 = 6927... DOES NOT COMPUTE. HUH??

Do all of the KHR pairings have a fanday? Can they just be arbitrarily declared or something? CAN I MAKE A YAMA/WALL FANDAY? This is extremely important.


3. Cut for spoiler )


4. I stole this meme from [livejournal.com profile] ekmisao and [livejournal.com profile] charpieinuse:

The rules:

If you have time to do this meme, then please link to my original, then link to three to five other bloggers and pass it on, asking them to answer your questions and link to you. [I feel this goes against the spirit of 6927 Fanday, which is to say I'm too lazy to tag people.] You can add, remove or change one question as you go. You absolutely do not have to be what you may think of as a "published" or "successful" writer to respond to this meme, I hope people can take the time to reflect on what their blogging has brought them and how it has been useful to others.


hmm hmm hmm )
makeste: (JOY JOY egao ga mitai kara)
The best day! Well. One of the days!

Anyway, I have a meme.

Ask me about a fandom of mine, and I'll tell you:

1. The first character I fell in love with:
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t:
4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
5. The character I would shag anytime:
6. The character I'd want to be like:
7. The character I'd slap:
8. A pairing that I love:
9. A pairing that I despise:
10. Favorite character:
11. What are my three favorite things about the fandom:
12. What are my three least favorite things about the fandom:
13. Who are my three favorite characters:
14. Who are my three least favorite characters:
15. What are my three favorite pairings:
16. What are my three least favorite pairings:
17. Which character I am most like:
18. What is my deep, dark fandom secret:


We must do this meme in the name of science.

(Also, happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] vazavati! Hope you had fun. <3)
makeste: (Car wreck kids)
How shocking!

Took both of these from [livejournal.com profile] rikasaurus. ♥

Leave me a comment and I will give you a letter.
Then, write 10 things that you love starting with that letter.
Post the list in your journal.
Give out letters to your commenters in return.


She gave me the letter G. 8D

GEE I WONDER WHAT THE FIRST THING ON THIS LIST IS. )

Aaaand...

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

My words: )

I'm probably too zonked to think of words to give out to everyone, but I'll be more than happy to give out letters.

Also, on a completely unrelated note: how is it that stuff like this is still happening in Iran and yet all the front page of CNN cares about is Michael Jackson? Seriously, enough already. :|
makeste: (One deadly and unpredictable midget)
GET IN THE CAR.

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] sandrock because it looked like fun! And also because I have nothing to do today sob.

Journal Meme )
makeste: (That's a nice story Grandpa)
I did this about three months ago, and last night I looked back at it and realized it was kinda out of date. XD So!

What this is: A list of all the fandom projects I'm currently working on, and their nearness to completion (mostly for my own reference XD). Disclaimer: Odds are good that several of the things listed here won't ever see the light of day because sometimes I just drop things for no reason and never pick them back up. And there's also a good chance that I might turn around tomorrow and write/post something that isn't even on this list, because inspiration is weird like that. Anyway.

List )
makeste: (Car wreck kids)
1. Happy (belated!) Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] teapoit and Happy (almost!) Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] hitsuuji! ♥

2. lol @ the utter contrast between the [livejournal.com profile] anon_reborn meme and the [livejournal.com profile] khrlove_meme. THE MORAL OF THIS STORY: NEVER TELL PEOPLE THEY CAN BE ANON AND "ANYTHING GOES" ON THE INTERNET. XD On the plus side, the latter meme put me in quite a good mood.

3. These two posts are awesome and caused me to spend a good chunk of time today musing about recent KHR plot developments and revelations. Will probably post more about this later. I love this damn arc.

4. ahahaha minibang what minibang? XDDD

TL;DR

It's gonna get lengthy up in here. )
