No pathetic attempts at clever intros today; my brain is fresh out, and anyway, why waste valuable time writing pre-cut text when I could be reading about Enma and Tsuna being fabulous teamworky boyfriends and winning all the things?

In this chapter I hope someone punches Daemon in the face again! )

That's 11 times 29!

And it's also the number of the latest KHR chapter! How weird is that? )

On a separate note, it's still a couple of weeks till New Year's but I've already decided that I'm going to make it one of my resolutions to be more consistent about comment replies. I've gotten so bad in the past few months, it's ridiculous. I just let everything pile up and then I get all discouraged whenever I log in because there's so much to get to and I don't have the energy to do it all but then I feel like an ass for just ignoring people, especially since you guys are all so awesome and leave detailed comments that point out stuff I hadn't noticed and raise really interesting points that I want to discuss. But I just get lazy and intimidated. ;;

So my new goal is to get to at least 3 comments a day, since I figure even someone as lazy as I am can't possible be intimidated by that many! START SMALL AND WORK MY WAY UP. That's the new plan. XDb

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, [ 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 [ 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 [ profile] aroundight:

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

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.

Just a quick side note before I jump in here--I'm heading up to Lake George tomorrow to go camping for the weekend, so in all likelihood I'll be MIA until Sunday night at the earliest. There is supposedly Wi-Fi access in select parts of the campground I'm staying at, but even if I do manage to get online at some point, I probably won't have much time for LJ antics. So have a good weekend, everyone. ♥

--oh, right. The chapter. XD

Silly me. )

And since I won't be around tomorrow, as mentioned, Happy Birthday, [ profile] mecomptane! PEACE, ALL.

I've been struggling with Writer's Block recently, so I figured I'd take a break from the angsty stuff I was working on and cleanse my soul with some refreshing crack.

So I wrote a bunch of really stupid fics.

Title: Twins
Rating: PG-13 (really it's pretty much G with some swearing)
Characters: Ganauche III and Coyote Nougat
Notes/Warnings: Spoilers for the newest arc, I guess? Also warning for general stupidity.
Summary: It's not that the Nonos are completely useless; it's just that they don't really give a damn.

'I said, someone kidnapped the boss.' )

Title: Mi Casa es Su Casa
Rating: PG-13 (again, for language only)
Characters: Primos!
Notes/Warnings: Spoilers through chapter 299, as well as for the Primo Arc in the anime. Further warnings for "god why would someone write this."
Summary: After spoilers happen, Primo and several of his guardians find themselves temporarily homeless.

'You guys, it’s really cramped in here,' Ugetsu de gozarued unhappily. )

Title: Tornado Punch
Rating: PG
Characters: Gokudera and Yamamoto
Notes/Warnings: May contain some butchering of your childhood.
Summary: In which Gokudera and Yamamoto have a Pokemon battle, because they can.

'Jirou! I choose you!' )
makeste: (Car wreck kids)
By now everyone's probably heard about OneManga shutting down. I'M NOT REALLY WORRIED, since scanlators have been doing their thing since way before OM and its ilk became popular (even in the worst case scenario, they could just go back to distributing new chapters over IRC like in the olden days), buuuut I am kind of ORZ WHYYYY about it because I'm going to have to edit out all the links in my old chapter write-ups. And then the odds are good that whatever links I edit in will eventually go down as well. SO IT BEGINS... THE GREAT BATTLE OF OUR TIME.

Really, I'm just waiting for the manga industry to finally catch on to the fact that online scans are THE WAY OF THE FUTURE!, and set up a subscription or ad-supported site (or maybe like an iTunes sort of thing) where fans could read new chapters legally without having to wait months for them to be released in their own countries (if the series are even licensed where they live in the first place). Until then, whatever.

ANYWAY, I SHOULD SHUT UP AND START BABBLING ABOUT KHR 299 NOW. Ignore the contradiction there.

Just one more week until the big three-double-oh. )

KHR 296!

I kind of wonder what Amano is going to do when number 300 rolls around in just a few more weeks, because frankly the last few chapters have set the bar awfully high.

This is the kind of epic that's really hard to top. )
makeste: (Car wreck kids)
You see, after being spoiled for the biggest shocker so far in this arc last week, I resolved to stay away from spoilers this time, so you'll all get to read my pure and honest reactions in this post today. Hooray!

Everyone, please accept my sincere feelings! )

ETA: Also before I get completely caught up in this whirlwind of narrative excitement, Happy Belated Birthday to [ profile] rinkhals! ♥

ITP: Plot.

May. 28th, 2010 12:23 pm
makeste: (I'm not the next of them)
Yes, this arc of awesome daily life and vegetables and Shitt P actually has a plot! I'm excited. Are you excited? I HOPE SO.

In any case, let the rambling commence! )
makeste: (I'M A SHAAAAAARK)
I think it was something like "KHR", but it's just been SO LONG, you know?

It does seem familiar, though... )

And in the likely event that I don't get around to making another post to mention it tomorrow, Happy Birthday, [ profile] phppsmss! And Happy Birthday to [ profile] escherichiacola too! ♥ ETA: AND ALSO [ profile] teruame. ♥ ♥
