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 [livejournal.com 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. Updated my list of recommended fanfiction recently! I'm always looking to update it, so if anyone has any stories, let me know because I'd love to read them when I have the chance.

2. I posted a playlist for one of my RPG characters, Lightning, over here, if anyone wants some music. It was fun putting this one together!

3. Also, I was thinking of putting together playlists for different ships as mini Christmas gifts, for those of you who can't send out cards/aren't comfortable with that. Is anyone interested?

4. I-I am currently busy building a personal playlist for Barret/Tifa from FFVII. I have playlists for Cloud/Tifa and Vincent/Yuffie too, but Barret/Tifa's the personal favorite right now. And it's bigger.

That's about it! Now if you excuse me, I'm going back to panicking about completing two papers that are due this Thursday, and trying to get some sleep in between the panic attacks.

day 06 | a quote
day 07 | whatever tickles your fancy


Since I've been behind on my books, I'll recommend a fanfic instead.

This time, it's Princess Tutu, a Rue and Mytho/Rue story. It's not only a beautifully written story, but it comes with songs to listen to as you read. The One Who Causes Darkness by [livejournal.com profile] allira_dream. Here's a snippet from the short story:

Randomly, two Beluga whales are pregnant at the Shedd Aquarium! They're both expected to give birth this fall. How awesome is that? I want to go see the babies after they arrive, if that's possible.

The answers to the Top 5 Meme are nearly finished! I have one list to complete - top 5 fanon ships, fuck yeah! - and the lists are ready to go.

In the meantime, allow me to pimp a few stories out to you! I've been searching for Final Fantasy fanfiction, and I'm looking for rare ships that I've never thought about before. There's a Kingdom Hearts story in the list, but it's still related to Final Fantasy. Each story rec will come with a snippet from the story.

Three fics: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, and Kindom Hearts. )

Anyone on my flist:

I need help finding songs relating to the themes in the following songs: I Think I'm Paranoid, Garbage. Lucifer's Angel, The Rasmus. Psycho Killer, Talking Heads. Then Go, Damien Rice. Untouchable, Garbage.

The reason why is because I may or may not have a muse that needs some stimulating music to get the creative juices going. Please and thank you if you do help. <3

A post on my flist got me thinking.

Does anyone have any anime/manga recommendations?

It's been awhile since I've gotten into a series or a new fandom. Like, I tried to go back and read past manga that I've looked at before, but I can't get into like. Like Negima!, for instance. Too many panty shots and too many "innocent boy gets smacked by overreacting naughty girls" cliches that bother me. Anything like that, if it's every other page, I'm not interested.

Help a girl out, people. Please? D:
