Delicious Vanilla

A man[or a woman] doesn't understand delicious vanilla.

In other news, dear people in the library, don't tear out the pages of the Megatokyo comic books. I was enjoying that! I was flashing back to my charming college days! I was certainly not expecting you to tear out 5 whole pages! So don't do that kids!

Ha Ha Ha, No!

The reason why we can't 'tolerate diverse stories' is that basing a fic off your real life because THE MAIN CHARACTER IS OMG, SO MUCH LYKE ME! is just asking for Mary Suedom. The reason people don't like that sort of story is that if you have to say 'it's based off of my real life', it's crap. If you can't justify your plot internal to the story or at least from canon, do a rewrite. If we can't tell, you've succeeded. But for god's sake, I don't care HOW funny your little friends at school are. Really!

In other news, the central library in Memphis is where they keep their manga. They seem to have at least 20 volumes of Prince of Tennis. I'll start on that. I already checked out Megatokyo. Very, very, pleased. I'm still working my way through Full Metal Alchemist, and hope to write up some ship manifestos some day.

Yandere Battle?

This Yandere battle is weak weak sauce. What about Kyoko in Skip Beat? She went from 'Sho is this world's miracle!' to flinging supernatural energy at people within one volume. Now that's epic. Tsubasa in Kare Kano could also do some damage. Notice her fight with Yukino in the beginning? It could have certainly escalated. And of course, Akito goes without saying. Yukari from Persona 3 totally cracks in the Answer, so she also has the potential. I just thought up FOUR women who are totally awesome yanderes instead of their weak weak moe moe sauce they have there.

I'm begging you please!

Warn for AU. I like fanfiction, but I'm not a 14 year old girl, so the idea SO LYKE, EVERYONE IS IN HIGHSCHOOL!!! AND LYKE, THEY ARE ALL VAMPIRES!!! does not strike me as something that I would like to click on unaware.

Romance lovers whine because someone wants more gen. It's not like one person wanting more gen is going to stop romance fics from being written. And also, I get that person's point. Twu wuv is not the only thing to write about. Heck, for many characters friendship or family might be more important to them. Maybe they are driven by a mission. Maybe they are worried about aliens blowing up Chicago more than their love lives. It *could* happen.

Game Fail!

From gamers of color, we find this stupid game. The creators thereof seem to believe that depicting people of color as savage cannibals is a great idea. I love board games, but it seems that people of color are either erased or put off to the side. And people complain that board gaming isn't as popular as they want it to be. Knock off the eurocentrism and kick these asshats out and we'll be all good.

Coastal Strikes Again

For heaven's sake

I wish folks would lighten up on fanficrants. Really, not all of us live in sparkly poo land in which all dudes wear enough makeup to kill a horse, who can take a 12 inch dildo with no pain and who deep throat on first try and whose penises ejaculate ice cream instead of semen. If you live in sparkly poo land, that's fine, but really, in most canons, people don't live in sparkly poo land. Blushing schoolboys who get all embarrassed about kissing are not likely sex gods, military men who live in the trenches probably wait til after battle to get the mascara and blush out, and yes, most people *would* notice if your average office worker sprouted wings. Really.

And by the way? I don't care about your kink. If you can't sell your kink to me, make me believe that this situation is plausible, well, suck it up and learn to write.

Red State Americans!

My favorite part of this writeup is the red state americans on their DS' bit. Gaming is bursting out of the narrow niche of sweaty boys, and exploding onto mom's computer screen with online Scrabble and of course, the amazing DS! But the problem with games is that there have to be a lot of remakes of the classics as older systems become obsolete.

Best Trope Ever

Comic Needed!

Now. Also needed, more Templar Arizona. Is it me or do my hobbies always outpace my pocket book?

Full Metal Rambling

This is an awesome fanart. My writer's block has intensified, but I'm enjoying a marathon of Full Metal Alchemist. I have started to ship Ed/Winry, but still don't understand Ed/Roy. I guess it's because I tend to think of fictional characters as in the ball park of the age they usually are. So I'm thinking of Ed as a teen and Roy being at least 30. Maybe I'm just not much of a shota fan...

You know...

I was thinking about Persona 3. Video games are so relaxing. Anyway, my musings are full of spoilers. I was thinking that that theme that plays sometimes, such as when you're walking Koromaru sounds like a poppy version of Kimi no Kioku or whatever the ending theme is called. I also thought that Fuuka and Junpei's powers are interesting. Fuuka says in game that her power connects her to others, and it's obvious that Junpei wants to be a cool hero instead of a zero. Everyone else is to protect someone, or find out the truth, I guess.

About know, if I was the appriser of death, I wouldn't go around macking on every girl I saw... But that's just me!

Anime is Silly!

Some guy gets a free toy and starts thinking about how anime is really silly. Yep, it's silly, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I like plucky 15 year old girls saving the world three times over! Bring on the hot boys, the unplanned pregnancies, and throw in the after school demon fighting team too! It's not that I don't like non silly entertainment, but on the other hand, no need to worry about looking cool.

I turn 25 this week. I'm a bit old for that.

Ouran Host Club 12

I find that I like manga better when they get more serious. In this volume, Kyoya shows the depth of his friendship for Tamaki, Tamaki becomes an adult, and Hikaru and Kaoru come to the end of their egg metaphor. Although I didn't notice before that the egg metaphor was because they are identical twins. I feel so stupid! But I'm certainly preordering the next volume.

I guess I prefer drama to hijinks. I can read hijinks and enjoy them, but my fannish enthusiasm isn't turned on until I get some emotional moments!
