Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kandismon I discovered the BEAUTIFUL SEIYA/USAGI (AND IN GENERAL BSSMI FANARTS OF YOUKAI YUME and found out THAT THERE IS AN SEIYA/USAGI FANART GROUP ON DW! YESSYESSYESS!! One day I would like to write a SHIP MANIFESTO about them. They are one of my first OTPs after all ♥!

Fullmetal Alchemist X Suikoden 1
(And it's my favourite ending to boot!)

MADE MY MORNING!! I adore Billie Piper, her face, her smile, her hair... ♥! I found the video extremely funny and have I mentioned the gorgeouse Billie Piper already, you know she's....

And the grass it was a ticking
And the sun was on the rise
I never felt so wicked
As when I willed our love to die

And I was your silver lining
As the story goes
I was your silver lining
But now I’m gold

I am very much in love with Rilo Kiley/. I only discovered them as a band a few days ago, but I had a fierce catchy tune of Breaking Up when I worked at H&M. They played it all the time and you just HAD to sing along. (Quietly ;D)

From Yesterday:

THANK YOU SO MUCH, [personal profile] lir


They sent my book today and I can't wait for it to arrive...

I have a seminar called The Vampire in Anglophone Cultures – Transformations of a Monster at university this semester and th lecturer started her introduction with a video from College Humor to show that there have been many different kinds of vampire adaptations since the original Dracula. IT'S HILARIOUS WATCH IT! (Bill! And Edward and Dracula....AND EVEN COUNT COUNT ♥!)

The new Kate Nash album My Best Friend Is You is great! I just CAN'T stop listening to Do Wah Doo (& watch the video! Kate Nash is just so cute and funny.)

I'll just read a book instead.
I don't care if we're just friends.
I can hang out with myself
I'm old enough now to pretend.
I'll just read a book instead.

I want to share one of my mother's cabaret artist/comedian with you: Horst Evers! (German only, I'm afraid.)
Please watch THIS video. The 'bread from yesterday' is so incredible hilarious ♥ It is far at the end of the video, but if you have some time, please watch the whole thing. It is just THAT good.
(I would also strongly recommend: FETTER AUSDRUCK)

While rewatching Lucky Star, because it is glorious and also the best thing to watch when you want to relax and not thing about too much about coherent plotline(s), I came across MY FAVOURITE LUCKY STAR SCENE EVER!! (Which is a lie, because I love most every scene in that damn show... ♥!!) I found it incredibly hilarious, when I first saw it but this time I looked for the cm WHERE KONATA'S ANTICS COME FROM and think it's even more hilarious now :D

And on the radio
You hear November Rain
That solo's awful long
But it's a good refrain
You listen to it twice
'Cause the DJ is asleep

They had a tiny review on Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening this morning and since IT IS SO PRETTY I really, really want it.
(Nevermind that I don't have the stupid game for the XBox anyway....WOE IS ME.)

Last Friday I fell in love. Hard and fast and once again with a boy. When it comes to fiction it seems that I succumb to charming young lads extremely easy. (Genius, Edmund, Briar, Takeru,...) Cat Chant was able to make me love him in a matter of seconds and "Charmed Life" is a truly wonderful book, I enjoyed it very much.

I was keen to read Dianna Wynne Jones Chronicles of the Chrestomanci because I love [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz's fanarts. (I enjoyed Chrestomanci's clothes as much in the book as I do in the fanarts. He is such a fashion victimfancy dresser.)

And since I got permission from [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz to use this beautiful fanart to make icons, I might as well share them with you.

(If you use one of them, please credit [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz as the artist!)

It is certainly not a good idea to search at fanfiction.net for fanfiction, because even though there are many well-written pieces there's twice as much crap. Still what do you do when you crave Digimon in the middle of the night?

Why is the fandom dead? Scratch that, but why are there so few fanfictions? Good ones? And finished ones? And I am not even talking about good Daisuke/Takeru fic, there simply isn't any, but Taichi/Yamato...? DARN.


Especially the song with Timbaland has been running through my for days now... ♥

I'll never be the same if we ever meet again,
Won't let you get away if we ever meet again,
This freefall's got me sold kiss me all night don't ever let me go,
Ill never be the same if we ever meet again

If we ever meet again,
I'll have so much more to say,
If we ever meet again,
I won't let you go away

[subject: catchy tune, nothing more.]

Breath of Fire

Awww, they look just like a good band of adventurers, don’t they?

Ah, the nostalgia! The graphics, the music, the dragon shrines & most of all Ryu &hearts,!
It's fun although I have to say that I am lost here and there. The people in the various towns don't say much about where I should go sometimes, so searching the world map for possible destinations is part of the game. I absolutely adore that there's day and night and that you can hunt with Bo. The abilities of the different characters are nifty, too, but you have to figure out what you can do (and of course that there's something to do) on your own. Mum told that it took her ages to get into Agua tower, because she hadn't figured out Bo's ability... Breath of Fire is much fun and for a game 'that old' there are many features that are simply amazing! I was so happy that the character who are not in my current party still get their share of EXP and that there was no need to level up characters like Gobi, Ox or Bleu. I like them, but to have rather weak characters in your party is tedious.
What I extremely liked was one woman in Auria, I guess, actually said to me: "What are you doing in my house?" It made me so happy because when I was a child I always wondered why the hell people let me into their houses (and t steal stuff, too) and were so nice to feed me with vital information as to where to go next in order to save the world.
I wonder how the GBA version is different from the SNES one, if at all. But I don’t remember many details of the SNES version, after all it’s been a while and the last time I played the game on the SNES I didn’t finish it because I kept on putting off fishing. I hate fishing and had forgot that in BoF fishing is so easy and you do it in wells where you can get the items you’re fishing for with only one try most of the time.
And every game with a good bitch fight is just made of awesome. (Tunlan ♥!)
I’d love to have more character interaction to see Nina and Bleu argue more (“I’m not THAT obnoxious!”) and also because Karn and Bo are really cool and they’d deserve some more spotlight. (Ryu too, the almost silent protagonist that he is.)
The soundtrack is very nice too. Yoko Shimomura and all ♥!

Ryu and Nina I understand, but why the random character selection of Bo and Ox? What have they what the others don’t?

But I do listen to something other while playing at the moment and that would be the ‘new’ album of Regina Spektor, namely Far and it is made of awesome. (Who would have thought, huh?)

Blue lips, blue veins
Blue, the color of our planet
From far, far away
Blue lips, blue veins

From far, far away
