First Fandom of 2011:  Star Driver I guess technically it didn't finish it's run until April.
Favorite Main Character of 2011: Tough pick. So now I have to decide between Artemis, Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, and Stephanie Brown as Batgirl.. wait no I don't. There I listed there. You can deal meme. 
Favorite Villain of 2011:  I don't really do favorite villains, because I'm a derpy female protag type and as a whole don't like the idea of idolizing bad behavior. Because I need even more shoujo protag tropes in my life, right?
Favorite Video Game Character of 2011: Do my Grey Wardens count? No? Then Alistair.
Favorite Game of 2011: Dragon Age: Origins
Favorite Het Couple of 2011: Artemis/-Insert male teammate here- from Young Justice. No I'm not picking one, because that wouldn't be fair.
Favorite Yuri Couple of 2011: Seven/Sice from Final Fantasy Type-0. Newer ship, but I already ship it like burning. And the game isn't even out in english yet ooops
Favorite Yaoi Couple of 2011:  Apollo/Midnighter from the Authority. No really. (Though Billy/Teddy from Young Avengers is a close second)
Fandom That You Never Expected To Get Into:  DC/Marvel/Comics in general
Fandom That Made An Unexpected Comeback: Soul Calibur. Did not see that love reviving so far and so hard.
Fandom That Inspired The Most Crack: Young Justice, by far. I regret nothing - not bb!Punzel as Wally and Artemis' daughter, not truth or dare leading to makeout lessons between Robin and Artemis, and not hot and gritty aphrodisiac fueled sex between Kaldur and Artemis either.
Last Fandom of 2011: Soul Calibur.

So, are you excited for the new year?:  Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes! COME ON 2012. LET'S GO!
What was your favorite thing about this past year?:  Moving back home again. It hasn't always been good, but hey I get regular meals and have AC/Heat now so I'll take what I can get.
Who was your best friend(s)?: Bubbles and Al and Khalily and Laura and a bunch of people. I love everybody. ;A; 
Did you fall in love this year?:  Since I categorize crushes and love separately, no. Platonically? That's another matter.
Did you get your heart broken?: Nope.
Did you get a new car?: Nope. 
Go somewhere exciting?: I don't call "moving back to Louisiana" as going somewhere exciting, meme.
Did you have a resolution for 2011?: To further fall in love with myself and to learn how to fully ignore haters. Especially people who just hate me for little things like the way that I limp or how my body looks.
Did you dye your hair in 2011?: I started the year with medium dark-ish blonde hair. It's now light blonde. You do the math. :3
Lose any friends in 2011?: I don't think so? I've drifted apart from some, but I wouldn't count that as losing them.
Make any?: [personal profile] serys I guess? We figured out we lived down the street from each other last year, but we never actually got together until this year. 
How much do you think you changed?: Not a whole lot I think? I'd like to think I'm a little happier, maybe a little more mellow. But that could be wishful thinking. I did learn to look to the present and future instead of dwelling on the past, so I guess there's that?
Did you grow any?: I'm still only 5'5". Did you have to rub that in? :(
What month was your birthday?: January. Same as last year and the year before that and the year before that and the... you get my point.
Was it special?: Nope. It was like any other day same as it always is. Oh wait! We went to the store and bought a cake from wal-mart. Does that count? ... There might have been ice cream involved too.
How were you in school?: Nope. I'm too poor and since I owe the one college I can't even get funding now. 
Do anything you regret a lot?: Physically messed around with people I wish I hadn't in retrospect and attempted a really patheti-sad relationship.
Anything you regret NOT doing?: I regret not turning in that job application on time. :(
Was it a leap year?: No.
What are you most thankful for this year?: 3 square meals, a roof over my head, air conditioning, heating, and my (for the most part) continued health as an unemployed, uninsured individual.
Did anyone you love die in 2011?:  No.
How many significant others did you have?: None?
Did you get in trouble a lot?: Nope.
Who are you going to kiss at midnight?: No one. I can kiss you if you want. I have a handy monitor screen here I can pucker up at.
Who do you WANT to kiss at midnight?: ...Sore wa himitsu desu. B/
Who's house are you going to party at?:  I have no idea. 
Going to watch the ball drop on TV?: No.
Will 2012 be better than 2011?: It has to be! Upwards and onwards! This year a new journal-site. Next year a new hometown! May 2012 be the year of new beginnings and new opportunities!

Anyone want some Jellybeans? I've still got 3 of them left.

Day 5 ~ Six Habits.

1. I bite my nails.
2. When I'm bored/thinking I tend to chew on my tongue
3. I pluck out hair constantly. Just lounging around with a pair of tweezers going away at my chin/face.
4. Not quite so bad now, but I used to do that annoying leg jiggling/toe tapping thing.
5. I tend to pick scabs, when I have them.
6. I tend to poke at sore things. If it stings to bend my finger a certain way, I tend to do it again out of spite just to see.

Same old story )

Oh! Meet my Dalish elf warden, Vel'ai. Who got an icon made just so I could derp around with [livejournal.com profile] obloguy on the dragon_age comm. She's kind of an arse, but I'm fond of her.

Yay meme spam! Sorry about that guys. I just didn't think putting both in the same post was bueno somehow.

I've actually gotten some sleep though. I feel much better and I'm ready to go be productive and climb my mountain of tags.

PS: Crit please? I'll take anything. Even if it's just "Watch your d's and r's!" or something. Just... something! Especially for Serah since she's still such a new muse for me. Advice! Advice! My kingdom for advice!

Day 02 - Your least favorite Final Fantasy game.



I actually like the characters in the game. I've just never really been able to get into the game for some reason. I've at least briefly tried my hand at most of the FF titles in existence and out of them all 7 is the one that I really have no desire to sit down and actually beat.

Give me a remake Square, with pretty new graphics and I'll try to slog my way through to see if the journey is really as awesome as everyone says it is.

AKHJLFADSFJ [livejournal.com profile] chosondragon I totally don't deserve these icons. Not that I'd ever turn them down. I like free stuff, you know? So fussing over my icons shall commence shortly.

Anyone got tips on finding new mood themes? I lost all the ones I had when my hard drive melted.

Also, roomie bought Supernatural season 1 for like 10 bucks today. Rejoice Mia soon I won't be completely clueless when you mention the series anymore. Just... mostly clueless. How many seasons are there of this show? Fuck.

oo1. comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional fandom characters.
oo2. decide of the 3 whom you would marry, do, and dump.
oo3. post this meme to your journal with your answers (pictures optional).
This is so awkward )

I've had the same layout/icons for a while now and it really felt like it was time for a change.

My layout is all new and sparkly clean. I wanted something light/bright after how dark the last one was. It's a nice change of pace, you know?

I've... put off the meme for a while now, but I guess I should actually see something through for once. So I'll go ahead and at least attempt to get back on track. I'm not doing all 14 days at once though, that'd be silly. So I'll just do day 2 for now and call it good.

Day 2 - One of your Favorite anime you’ve watched so far

Favorite anime out of everything I've ever watched ever? You don't want much from me, do you meme?

See, I find it nearly impossible to answer this question because I'm really more of a "which genre am I in the mood for?" type person. So my favorite depends on my mood and which genre I want to watch at that moment in time.

So ultimately to answer this question I looked at my still rather incomplete MAL anime list and went "Which one of these series would I watch over every other series on that list?" and that's how I came up with the answer.




Record of Lodoss War OVA

This is probably one of the first if not the first anime that I ever watched in it's entirety. After all, back in the day my parents didn't approve of anything animated that came from Japan and since I was a youngester it was harder to get around them to watch things. (my internet access wasn't so great then. Young people these days have it so easy!)

Slight cut for my nostalgia and stories of my childhood )

Anyways, onto the anime itself now that my nostalgia is out of the way. Record of Lodoss War is, ironically, based off of someone's DnD (or a game like it) campaign. So it's actually got a pretty typical party set up. You've got the young adventurer Parn who's a total green horn but has a good heart. The old, grumpy dwarf axeman who's really a softy if you can find the right spot. The well meaning cleric, the wizard/sorcerer who wants to fully master his craft, and the hot elf chic who's good with a rapier and can summon nature spirits too. The characters are enjoyable, there's not a single one of them that I dislike. The minor characters can be pretty amazing as well even some of the villains aren't bad. The plot's pretty standard for a campaign I suppose. It's got evil kings trying to conquer and unify areas of land, secret sects who want to revive ancient goddesses of destruction, and a rogue witch from an ancient civilization who watches over everything and moves the characters around like their pawns on her cheeseboard.

Otherwise known as it's bloody fantastic and you should all watch it. Not Chronicles of the Heroic knight, that's a totally different series and mutilates some of the characters. Not Crystania either, that's another unfortunate spin off.

So now onto finding a new mood theme and updating my icons. :D

Day 01: A song that you've kept on repeat lately


Marie Digby's music has really meshed with my Rinoa muse lately, so it's been easier to churn out tags for her with either this song or Feel on repeat.

I also might have cheated and wrote my own list of 30 to use instead. My bad.
