makeste: (I'm not broke)
Because I have no patience for comment limits, and because my fingers apparently will just not stop typing words.

This is the response to [livejournal.com profile] misamiera’s request from this meme. The KHR request. Which would explain why, three questions in, the word count for the comment was at about 2,000 words.

Click here for 2k words of rambling about Gokudera, Tsuna, and Reborn! )

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.

makeste: (Shitt P Imma let you finish)
This is like, mind-boggling to me. o_O

FROM [livejournal.com profile] demoerin:

Pick a fandom and I'll tell you my...

- 3 favorite relationships
- 3 favorite characters
- 3 of my favorite moments
- 3 reasons I like/love that fandom


FANDOMS ARE LISTED IN MY PROFILE. PLEASE GIVE ME SOMETHING TO DO ON THIS TOO-RAINY THREE DAY WEEKEND. ♥ Besides work more on my Undercover fic, which I really should be doing given that the deadline is in two weeks, BUT SHUSH.
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (I am filled with solutions!)
From [livejournal.com profile] mikenno (who has the best fucking memes lately):

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas or concepts or factoids I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting him or her accurately. This includes original characters and characters about whom I write fanfic.

I WANT TO DO THIIIIIS

And also there is one from [livejournal.com profile] rikasaurus!

the "what icon do you associate with me?" meme!
• do not look at the comments.
• take a look at my userpics.
• post a comment with the icon of mine you associate with me. leave commentary if desired.
• repost with your default icon.


This one I'm just curious about, idk. And I didn't use my default icon for this post, but I used one of my newer ones that hasn't gotten around as much so I figure it's all right.

FIRST ONE OF THE NEW YEAR!

From [livejournal.com profile] mikenno: Post the 11th gif in your folder and that is how 2011 will turn out for you.



--OH MY GOD WHY?!?

Also I went and uploaded the 21st gif too because I was curious how KHR 321 was going to turn out (I'm pretty sure that's how it works, right?).



...huh.

ETA: I like how within two weeks of my posting this BOTH OF THESE THINGS CAME TRUE. WHAT THE HELL, MAN. That's eerie. You have to admit that is eerie!
makeste: (GENKISHI used WALL!)
WHY AM I DOING THIS oh my god. Stolen from a lot of people with more interesting/less obnoxious voices than my own:

Make a voice post with the following things so that your F-list can hear how you pronounce them (and laugh at you, of course):

01. Your name and/or username
02. Where you're from
03. The words "roof", "aunt", "direction", and "naturally"
04. Your favorite song
05. Your favorite character
06. A word in a different language




D:
makeste: (I just need one of those braindages.)
Trick or treat, kids! Let's do it!

STOLEN FROM EVERYONE:

1 ★ Create a graphic (200 x 200 max size) to represent your personal "candy". It should have your username on it, but otherwise can feature whatever you want. Make it something special since it's self-representative.

2 ★ Make a post with the subject "trick or treat?". Put your "candy" somewhere in it, and be sure to repost these instructions.

3 ★ Then, go around other people's LJs and reply to them with either "trick" or "treat". If you reply with "trick", they will give you an LJ dare that you have to perform before taking their candy. If you're too wimpy for that, simply say "treat" and take their candy.

4 ★ List all your collected candies in your original "trick or treat?" post to show off your collection!




Sweet, sweet candy )
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.

Memes!

So, makeste, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 16% unique (blame, for example, your interest in yamamoto's zombie brain), 10% peculiar, 26% interesting, 30% normal and 17% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy star trek). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 32

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 70% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!






Hey. Hey. "Yamamoto's zombie brain" is a totally normal and not-at-all-bizarre interest, okay.

And let's see if I can't boost that "herdlike" percentage by doing another meme!

the that's my favorite! meme
A FANFICTION PRAISE MEME


And one more!

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, thoughts on lima beans, favorite language, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

SEEING AS I'M KEEN TO PLEASE AND ALL, TELL ME WHAT TO POST ABOUT?


Leaving to see Scott Pilgrim in an hour; I'm so excited. :D
makeste: (Hello sexy world)
Since KHR is still annoyingly not out yet, I took a meme from [livejournal.com profile] amcw177!

I. Pick 30 of your favorite movies
II. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
III. Post them here for everyone to guess.
IV. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
V. No Googling/using IMDb search or other search functions. In other words, NO CHEATING. D<


As I happen to love both movies and quoting them, I enjoyed this. )

ETA: sob it took me more than two hours to notice that there was a really obvious typo in the first sentence of this post. SO EMBARRASSED AHHHHH.

ETA 2: Well, that's pretty much all of them. |D

ICON MEME

makeste: (I just need one of those braindages.)
From [livejournal.com profile] chesauroshin! It's been like a year and a half since I did this one last, so.

* reply to this post with the word MEME and I will pick six of your icons.
* make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
* other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
* this will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.


Guess what's behind this cut! YES, ICONS! How did you guess? )


Anyway, now that that meme is done with, I think this is a good opportunity for me to wish [livejournal.com profile] part_b a very happy birthday, and to also pass along considerably less timely but no less heartfelt birthday wishes to [livejournal.com profile] circles9, [livejournal.com profile] smilypie, and [livejournal.com profile] morgrix as well. ♥ One day I'll stop failing at life. XD
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (Love doesn't come in perfect packages)
Taken from [livejournal.com profile] ekmisao and several others!


I write like
J. K. Rowling

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




I used Down the Stairs to start out with, since it was one of my more recent(...ish) fics, and the longest one I've done. I AM INCREDIBLY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS. I freaking love Rowling, okay.

So then I fed it some more fics just for kicks and I got hilariously varied results that included H.P. Lovecraft, Margaret Atwood, Chuck Palahniuk (twice), Douglas Adams, and James Joyce.

But by far the best result was when I tried First Impressions, my GokuHaru fic. And got this.


I write like
Edgar Allan Poe

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




XDDDDDD

THIS MEME MAKES ME WANT TO WRITE MORE THINGS, I THINK I WILL GO TRY THAT.
makeste: (Hello sexy world)
...okay, I probably deserve to be shot for that one. Still, I AM EVER SO CURIOUS, so, y'know, if you guys feel like it... 8D?

WHAT'S MY FLAME?
makeste: (I'm the next act)
...I will do... something. I don't even know what. But it will be REALLY IMMATURE and DISGRUNTLED and probably embarrassing.

Aside from that, I am in a fanfic conundrum! I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] khrminibang because HELL YEAH, but now as the first deadline approaches, I'm starting to have second thoughts. Because the one decent idea I had, I'm not sure if I can pull off (my inspiration is waning), and I don't want to use any of my other ideas because I'm afraid they'll all be retconned by the time the fics are posted in September (DAMN YOU SHOUICHI, YOU SCARRED ME FOR LIFE). And also it would take time away from working on the sequel to Down the Stairs, which is already way behind schedule because I lost the flashdrive that had the fic on it a couple months ago, and after weeks of searching I finally gave it up for lost and started over, only to finally find the flashdrive again just a couple days ago, which arrrrrrgggh. Rube Goldberg would be proud of the way my progress on this fic is going.

Anyway. So I have a few more days to decide if I'm going to stick with minibang or not, I guess. MAYBE NEW INSPIRATION WILL STRIKE ALL OF A SUDDEN; stranger things have happened.

In the meantime, nothing like using up the free time that should be devoted to fic by posting a meme, I always say! From [livejournal.com profile] tsunayoshi:

Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

ETA: ALSO! Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] thisiscyrene and [livejournal.com profile] krillia! I think at least half the people I know both online and in RL were born in May, lol. Anyway, I hope you both have an awesome day. ♥
makeste: (Fly casual)

While there is a risk that disobeying this part of the meme will result in CRIPPLING GUILT, it's a chance I'm willing to take.

I HEREBY TAG ANYONE WHO FEELS LIKE GETTIN' TAGGED. )

Haha, let's do this. )

The Meme:

♠ If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new question.
♠ Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.
Haha that's not going to happen. XD BUT ANYWAY.

Lastly, I took this meme because everyone was doing it.

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.
