Time for an update!

I am totally deleting all the crap I just wrote about blah feelings. Let's talk about ANIME!

So, I just recently watched the first season of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Spoilers )

I did actually immediately start loading the second season after that, but I had watched episodes 9-13 in one evening and decided my heart couldn't take anymore wonderful right then. So I'll be getting back into it very soon XD

Also I needed to flail properly! Before I could go on this season had to get a moment of appreciation first! I think that's only fair!

I might even try and get back into proper flailposts when I watch things. Anime isn't the best medium for that because the episodes are pretty short, but it isn't impossible! And after falling utterly in love with Firefly (yeah I kind of regret not having flailposts for that but I was WAY TOO BUSY FLAILING TO WRITE DOWN WORDS) I will definitely be making a proper post when I watch the movie Serenity (hi Bhex 8D)

emothy: (massu; oiran photoshoot)
I have two words to begin this post with.


Now, let's discuss that: )

I also have suggestions for the next photobook, because these things are important and should be thought about properly.
- Cop (Think the Etude outfit but with a shoulder holster, brandishing a gun, probably some blood *_*)
- At the Beach/Learning to Surf (if you already know how, Massu, I seriously don't care, PRETEND OTHERWISE. We want half-naked, wet and drippy dorkiness with lots of falling off the board and laughing about it. The ONE problem with this photobook is not enough smiling! Also, not enough long hair, UNF.).
- Samurai/Shinsengumi officer just go push Hamao out of PMK already omfg
- Motobike. Just get in denim and leather and get on a fricking motobike and let me die happy. The end <3

In other news (yes there is other news, reluctantly XD), tomorrow mum and I have a day off together for the first time since my birthday (which does not count because we spent the day with my grandparents too who did their best to bitch and moan about everything they felt like. We both love them, but SERIOUSLY. HARD. WORK. I love them, I love them /repeat). So tomorrow we are going to be living in the cinema! Mum wants to see the new POTC film, I want to see the new X-Men, so it's a trade ;) And we'll have a nice meal out too probably :)

We don't have Sky TV anymore, we have this BT Vision thing wherein they buy/rent/whatever seasons of TV shows and documentaries and stuff and you can watch them anytime. So I may have been mainlining seasons 2-4 of How I Met Your Mother (no they did not have season one! But I saw an episode while in Australia and it was you know, FUNNY, so I gave it a try nonetheless). I think Barney Stinson is my not-so-twin. We both go around talking about how AWESOME we are all the time <3333

This post would not be relevant without an oniikuma:

emothy: (story of a man)
Does anyone have a post or know of other people's posts about their "Top Ten Dramas"? (Or it might be top five/twenty/J-Dramas/K-Dramas... you get my point)

I was browsing idly, as I do, and saw someone make an idle listing. Since right now I'm watching Joseon X-Files [aka Special Investigation Record] which doesn't lend itself to the liveblogging so much I've been thinking about other ways to keep updating my drama-centric DW account, in case other things I watch end up this way, because I don't want the journal to just go dead at those times.

As one option, I went back to [livejournal.com profile] drama_hunt to check out the tags and see which of my favourite dramas I could picspam for, and I've done two of those so far:

Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (The Legend) - Various Episodes: Sujini + alcohol = OTP!

My Prince - Episode 3: Piggyback Ride of Love!

But I thought a Top Ten Favourite Dramas post might also be fun, or one that rates everything you've watched; I find those kind of things really interesting when considering what to watch next. And of course we all like different things for different reasons. I did try to keep a rating system in a document once, up to five stars sort of thing, but I'm sure I deleted it because I am silly.

So I'd kind of like to compile a few and see what other people have done and how they've formatted them - I definitely like the way they do it on the Dramabeans website, giving a rating for quality as well as personal enjoyment (there are things I enjoyed 100% but know they are not a good example of quality XD), but since that is a collection of everything they've ever watched it's obviously done with the intent to be short but informative enough for people browsing. It's not much use to me since I've watched a lot less dramas, and couldn't call myself an authority on them so I'd need to explain myself a lot more!

So, do you have a listing? Or know someone who does? I am going to go on my own travels and search but if you have any to share, please do! Thank you, you drama crazy people <3

[P.s - this seems like a silly thing to note, but how else would anyone know? I've been posting under friendslock more often these days - paranoia or something! - but if there was anyone who happened to follow me who can't see those entires, and wanted on the friendslist, by all means let me know! ...Not that I am assuming, I'm just pointing it out before I forget again :D]

Quoting a fic )

Stupidly, now that I'm home where I wanted to be I'm feeling the need to avoid everyone. I'm going to blame periods on messed up emotions.
emothy: (Default)
I forget sometimes how quiet it can get on LJ at the weekends XD I've been logged into my fic journal since sometime last night and I've come back to the check my flist here and there's only about five new posts. At least I wasn't missing anything!

Except the US Open Final line-up post - I opened it hoping to see Nadal's name and then just gaped when I didn't see Federer! I'm utterly a Nadal girl and would've been rooting for him, but I do so love to see them play one another. I'll never forget Wimbledon 2008. And I think it really would've proven something should Nadal have gotten to face Federer and than beaten him on the hardcourt. I don't dislike Djokovic; I don't anything him XD I just want Rafa to complete his Slam collection with a US Open. VAMOS RAFA. I want this to be his time.

So, fic-journal, I spent hours and hours and hours and HOURS (I eventually went to bed at 2:30am with more to do upon waking again) re-titling the posts. Why the hell did I do the numbered thing on a fic journal anyway? Being pretentious? I mean even I didn't know what the post was from the title! And I put a new layout up so I'd have the tags list on my layout; for my ease of access when I want to find stuff. I've also posted and backdated a bunch of things that were strewn across other journals and communities in an attempt to get everything centralized. I'm happy; I just wish I didn't have such a huge Prince of Tennis fic masterlist in a way because it's getting unwieldy and too much to look at. Although I realise it doesn't seem so much because some of it is locked to only me or only me and Cyn! (We have little universes we play in that nobody else would be interested in XD). I have posted lots this year though, I know it if nobody else does ;D

I also worked out a week or so ago what to use my Dreamwidth journal for; I've posted up a list of (Asian) dramas, animes and movies I've seen and am using it for liveblogging. Wang Qiu Wang Zi Season Two currently. And my allegiance is firmly with Li Hai Da (Rikkai) because I adore them, and it's going to be difficult to watch the end! (It's been hard enough already! XD). I love liveblogging; all the ridiculous instant reactions and capslocking I do is insane, but fun :D

I'm also working on a fic at the moment which is going to be the longest one-shot I've ever managed to finish (and I'm damn confident at this point that I am going to finish it!). It's over 15K right now, and that's a lot for me. That's probably twice what I've ever managed before now. So I'm proud of myself ...Even if it is a hooker!au XD

Almost only two weeks til holiday too! Wow I'm chirpy today ;)

I had convinced myself I didn' have to post about this week's ep. And then this huge ramble happened!

Spoilers for CM in general - everything up until now )

I love rewatching things. Especially things I already love.

In rewatching Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi I am overwhelmed by just how kickass the women are, constantly. How many of them are in positions of power, influence, how every woman has intelligence and strength, and a great many proficient with a weapon (except, for example, the Oracle who is THE high priestess and I doubt anyone would ever think she would have any need for a weapon). There definitely needs to a be kickass women picspam of them all. Right from Saeoh and Kajin, to Sujini and Kiha, to Ba-Son (the best blacksmith, now there's a great job for a woman!) and Dalbi. Gak Dan and her second-in-command, the Oracle and her second-in-command (she tries to be kickass, she does try. Just like Dalbi). And there are so many scenes with women in, too. Only the women. They are great players in the game, the politics, and the spread of power in the show.

I totally love this show beyond words. I am really so glad it wasn't something taken from a book and made because I think if it had been, the book(s) would've been better - they always are! - and I would have liked the show less for it. BUT IT ISN'T!

And the parallels I'm noticing, and the little tiny details that I didn't think of before. Even OBVIOUS things I really should've seen! Or the emotions running across a persons face, and now that you know what is coming next, you can SEE it on their face, what they are thinking in that moment. The moment they lose all hope, or spot an opening.

The love I have for this show is overwhelming. I've almost cried three times now, and I KNOW WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. It doesn't stop me!

Seriously, seriously kickass women. Love it.

Okay, I want to talk about Criminal Minds. Specifically, what could happen at the start of season five.

Therefore, cut for speculation and SPOILERS! )

I'd just like to take a moment to gush a little about Stephen Fry. I love Stephen Fry. I knew a long time ago that I loved Stephen Fry, but reading his autobiography makes me want to squish him up and carry him around in my pocket love him. (Mostly so I can pluck him out now and then to cheer me up).

He has actually reminded me how wonderful it felt to be in love for the first time, no matter how awful the fall-out was, or the shittiness of unrequited love, whatever. Whatever the ending, the beginning, the sheer act of living and experiencing it... I suppose I can't say I regret that. Feeling on a high all the time, being completely aware of how obvious I was, how obsessed, head-over-heels and chastising myself every minute of every day for having to glance in his direction every few seconds, or check the classroom door to see if it was him walking in.

There are a few things in there that make me feel not so alone in the way my mind works, or perhaps the guilt I feel at having certain opinions or emotions.

And goddamned if I never would've guessed that MEN could sit and do something like imagine what lovely name that boy they'd just fallen for at first sight might have, the word that would match the beauty. Running through the alphabet, picking and choosing.

Can't say I've ever done it personally, but there are similar sorts of things I suppose I think of as being part of a woman's imagination? ;D Not in a way that demeans either gender.

I have fifty pages to go, and though I usually go to bed at eleven on a night before a working day, I think I'll be pressing on to finish this before I lay down tonight.

-a reason, or a meme, I just love my Cinnamon


There are so many things at work worth laughing about considering how pathetic they (the girls) are, but I will keep this post all happy-lovey-vibed.
