samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (let's be more than this)
I heard there's this battle between Tumblr versus Livejournal now? Whatever, dudes. It sounds lame and it isn't worth the headache. Both are legitimate great forms of blogging in their own rights for different reasons.

Also, there's been this stupid chart circulating around Tumblr and Livejournal about female characters and grouping them into stereotypes to display how they aren't strong female characters. Nobody is an exception, not even Sailor Moon or Angelica Pickles or Yoko Ono. I can't really explain what's wrong with it as properly as I want to, so I'm going to link you to a few posts that sum everything I feel about this chart. There's much more, but those two are the main ones that pop into my brain right now.

Speaking of Tumblr!

A few months back I posted a series of fanart featuring ships I don't actually or actively ship. These were pictures that inspired me to check a ship out or the picture was so pretty that I couldn't help but love the ship for a short amount of time until I realized, "Oh, yeah, this does nothing for me in canon, my mistake."

I thought about it for a few days, before and after [ profile] analeisa started doing a fanart spam based on the idea in her own tumblr, and decided to feature some fanfiction that do the same thing for me. The featured stories focus on ships I don't really love nor do I really seek out on a regular basis. These stories do such a great job at convincing me (and possibly others) that the ship can work or displaying everything beneficial the ship has to offer to fans that I can't help but add them to my favorites and go back for constant rereads.

So, here's the list. There's only four of them, for now, but these four are some of my favorites to recommend.

Fandoms include Disney, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Kingdom Hearts... )

1. Well, is closing down. Which is fine with me, because I rarely ever read manga series anymore and when I do, it's because I've purchased the books from Borders. Still, it's a little sad to see it go since it was a great source for manga series that hadn't been licensed in America yet. Now I haven no idea how I'm going to read series like NANA if the artist ever picked it up again.

2. Thanks to [ profile] gemkazoni, I watched A Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I didn't expect to like it as much as I do, but it really was a good film! (I may or may not have tear bended twice.) So um. If anyone hasn't seen it yet, you should really check it out!

3. Avatar: The Legend of Korra! I'm so excited; I'm glad that the critical mess that is the godawful The Last Airbender doesn't seem to be effecting the progress of this show. And the new Avatar is a lady! (My younger sister was surprisingly excited about that. The first thing she wanted to know is if the new Avatar was going to be a girl. SO PROUD OF HER.)

Although I heard that the fandom is already being incredibly immature about the fact that Aang's son is going to appear in the series, and the strong possibility that he's also the son of Katara? To be honest, I'm so over the canon vs. fanon battle that I really don't care about either ships anymore. Both of them aren't worth the effort, in my opinion; I care but I don't care that much. I just want to put that aside, move onto the new show and welcome it as it is.

4. I'll work on meme prompts either tonight or tomorrow. I'm just so ... blah lately. I haven't been able to crawl out of my insomniac habits yet. :\ Real life is incredibly dull, too.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (there's been trials and tribulations)
I feel like shit. I've had these strange body aches and dull pain since Tuesday. First it just started with the ball of my right foot, and now the muscles in the back of my left thigh are sore and I'm starting to feel it in my hands. I don't know what I did. Maybe standing for five hours with cheap pairs of shoes are doing it to me, or I pinched a nerve? I felt fine on Monday, but as soon as early Tuesday morning rolled around, it hit me. :\

In other news, because I know a few people are going to want to hear about this or in case anybody's curious: The Last Airbender's getting critically panned by both professional critics and fans alike. So far it's got an astounding rating of 9% on Rotten Tomatoes. (That may or may not change since it's only been released this week.)

Personally I can't say I'm surprised. Even when you leave the casting decisions out of the reasons why you shouldn't see this, it just sounds like a disappointing film in every other aspect. I really hope nobody pays to see this, only because it doesn't seem to come anywhere close to the energy and spirit of the show.

(By the way, the rumors about the female characters' roles getting diminished or completely forgotten? Sorry to say, but given what's been said in reviews so far, it's true. Not only was Katara a weaker fighter, but she didn't even get to inspire the Earth Kingdom prisoners to fight back against the Fire Nation soldiers, or fight against Pakku, or even get the upper-hand in her one-on-one fight with Zuko. And the Kyoshi Warriors--plus Suki--were cut from the film completely.)

EDIT: Also, I've tried nutella for the first time ever. It's ridiculously delicious. (Sadly I'm the only one in the house who likes it. Too bad, there's going to be a jar in the house from now on.) I gobbled up two pieces of toast covered in nutella and I plan to do it again tomorrow when I wake up. I'm just sad I couldn't celebrate its goodness with bananas because we're all out. :(

[ profile] ssj10 explains the reasons why you shouldn't pay to see The Last Airbender or any merchandise related to it. It's a very heartfelt, moving entry that asks others to reconsider boycotting the film if they were planning on watching it.

[ profile] ivy_chan posted two entries about the extremely offensive Supernatural fanfiction using the recent tragedy of the Haitian people as a backdrop for their story and the reasons why it's offensive. If anyone's heard of the wank but isn't completely sure what happened, these posts sum it up, and they also explain why this story was offensive.

Nickelodeon Studios Staffing Up for New "Avatar the Last Airbender" Project

Nickelodeon has confirmed that the project is in production, adding that series co-creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are involved and that more information will be forthcoming at a later date.

(1) For those of you who follow [ profile] racebending or the news about the white washing in the live-action film of Avatar: The Last Airbender, apparently there's a graphic novel now. The second one, I don't have much of a problem with, because they do show Zuko with his scar, but the first one? Nooooo.

(2) I watched The Hunchback of Notre Dame because I was in a bad mood and I was looking for a pick-me-up. It has to be my second favorite Disney movie. I really wish Disney would release it on Blu Ray.

(3) As a quick note, I haven't forgotten about the fanmix meme! D: I'll get around to it.

(4) I got "Fool" by Christopher Moore on paperback. I've been going back and fourth between that and "House of Leaves," admittedly not far in either books since I Haven't been in the mood to read anything. Both books are really good so far, though.

LET'S DO THIS. Cut in particular because there is discussion about fandom and characters, and I'm not sure if anyone cares to read those.

Twitter... )

• I'm inspired to sign on for NaNoWriMo yet again. I should actually just wait to attempt it next year, or wait until the July challenge, but I have ideas in my head and I actually want to write them down. I love living under stress, don'tchaknow! Um, looking for anyone else who's thinking about doing this to suffer along with me.

• I finished most of the mini fanmixes! Here's the following complete so far: Beast Boy/Terra (Teen Titans), Mytho/Rue (Princess Tutu), Setsuna (Sailor Moon), Chibiusa/Hotaru (Sailor Moon), Sokka/Zuko (Avatar). I still have to complete Harold/Rhonda and Fakir/Ahiru. It turns out that while I ship these two ships, I don't know songs from the top of my head that fit these two. D: So ... I have to dig through my iTunes tomorrow. D: Feel free to download the songs! And if anyone still wants to make a request, feel free to spam me with more character and ships.

• I started on my path to watch K-ON once again! It's not the best anime ever, but it's cute and something light to watch!

• I-I have a Gopher icon. I don't even like him that much, but dammit, that face will forever haunt me. Also? Rainbows. (Um, Soul Eater fans, is there a reason why the fandom keeps calling him Waffles? O_o I'm very confused. When did he get this nickname?)
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ((ff7) got it memorized?)
Well, it's time for me to stop angsting, or try to. Right now I'm sore more than anything.

I finished that top 5 meme lists, with the exception of one. I still have the Top 5 Fanon Ships to do, but I'll post it later tonight or tomorrow. I might tweek the lists later. I don't know yet, we'll see.

Most of the fandoms include Sailor Moon, Nana, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and Avatar. I wanted to include more, but I'll think of something for the Top 5 Fanon Ships. If anyone still wishes to suggest something else, feel free!

Top 5 Rants Against Sailor Moon )
Top 5 Senshi )

Something about an update on the Avatar movie casting lingers under this cut. If you could care less or you're sick of hearing about it, don't read this. )

Real life issues are calmer, but then they're not. There's barely any pain in my left side now. My appetite was completely gone today. I forced myself to eat, though, so I'm good to go.

The only reason why I'm up this late, at this point? Video gaming. All of my characters are at levels 99. Time to face Sephiroth! That final battle will happen ... tomorrow, lulz. Totally not ready for this shit. D:

Edit: So I came to a few conclusions about FF7, when I actually remember my shipping preferences.

• So I discovered that I ship Barret/Tifa. Then I remember Cloud and feel guilty about it. Then I settle for an OT3 - Barret/Tifa/Cloud - so everyone can be happy. I know it's weird, but I can't imagine Tifa without Cloud and vice versa, or Barret without Tifa OR Cloud. It's my first OT3 ever.

• When I was younger, I shipped Reno/Yuffie. It's pretty much a fanon/crack pairing, if I'm right on this. I haven't seen anyone else show an interest in this. I don't know where the pairing came from, or why I thought about it, but I did. I think I had my ships figured out when I was ... ten or eleven years old, except Yuffie was left out and I felt bad, so I slapped her into a pairing with Reno. Looking at the pairing now ... it's totally hot and I hope I was the first one to think of it. My ten-year-old self knew what she was doing. XD;

I also shipped Sephiroth/Aeris I MEAN. You see nothing.

• No slash pairings. (Except the occasional Cid/Vincent, because it's fucking weird and I love it.) Not even the femmslash. I ship the ladies for the lulz, but never seriously, not even for a minute. I've been stuck in my ways about the characters, and none of them really strike me as gay or bi.

• I used to ship Vincent/Lucrecia, but ... obviously that changed a lot. Lucrecia as a character annoys me even more now. I feel bad for her, and then I think she knew exactly what she was doing and it's too late to regret those decisions. That, and I think Vincent needs to realize that Lucrecia wasn't perfect and that he should stop punishing himself for a situation he had no control over in the first place.

You know how Avatar fandom needs more awesome?

Here, have some awesome!

Lex, you got what you wanted! Zuko and Sokka get to have a sword fight, one against the other. :D

Sev, I totally get a Dude/San vibe from Sokka/Zuko in this video, it is scary. Except if San ever gets half as emo as Zuko, I'm getting anti!Cais on his ass.

Edit: Okay. This has to be the best coho bot I've had in ages.

PrudentCoho (2:17:24 AM): Hi, Billy Mays here with another fantastic coho.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (♥ dazzle)

Here, I'll start with this:
