First Fandom of 2012:  Looking at the anime list that was running at the time I'm going to say Aquarion EVOL more than likely was the first new fandom.
Favorite Main Character of 2012: Commander Shepard. The girl version because for me at least the idea of Shepard being a guy is just so weird.
Favorite Villain of 2012:  I don't really do favorite villains, because I'm a straight-laced twit 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? Same answer as last year, awwe yeah. Some things don't change.
Favorite Video Game Character of 2012: Am I allowed to answer Shepard here too? Or is that cheating? For a non-Shepard answer then I'd have to say.... Garrus maybe? I've been on a huge Garrus kick lately. Honorable mention to Kaiden who's also from Mass Effect and Noel from Final Fantasy XIII-2
Favorite Game of 2012: the Mass Effect trilogy.
Favorite Het Couple of 2012: Shepard/Garrus and Shepard/Kaidan. Going for a non-ME thing we'll say Natasha/Clint or Natasha/Coulson from Avengers.
Favorite Yuri Couple of 2012: I don't think I really have a specific one. Shepard/Liara maybe?
Favorite Yaoi Couple of 2012:  Hm.... Clint/Coulson, but does it count if I prefer it with a side of Natasha? Also I actually kind of ship James Vega/Steve Cortez in Mass Effect 3. Oops?
Fandom That You Never Expected To Get Into:  Mass Effect?
Fandom That Made An Unexpected Comeback: Mass Effect. I actually started the game near the beginning of the year and it was okay then, but later it just hit me really, really hard and now I can't get enough of it.
Fandom That Inspired The Most Crack: I'm not sure if I've done too much crack this year and most of what I have has been cross-canon. My bad?
Last Fandom of 2012: Mass Effect.

Here are the stamps I've collected over my stay at LJ. Some are new some are old. They're all here though and loved. Got suggestions for a rating community I should try. Just suggest it and I'll take a look.
Who is that girl they see is it really me? )

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

This has been crossposted to my plurk. :3

1. The Heavenly Handyman and the sister who makes magic in the kitchen Piper and Leo from Charmed
2. He finds people in the forest and she finds them in the city Grahama and Emma from Once upon a time
3. He's atoning a sin and she's hunting for a rebel
4. The guy with the fastest mouth and the girl who breaths fire
5. He can be whatever you want him to be and she likes lots of charm
6. He's a brat and she's a monster Syaoran and Sakura from Card Captor Sakura
7. He's a princess, and she's a queen Ranka and Alto from Macross Frontier
8. The dork with the money and the girl who likes steak Chie and Yosuke from Persona 4
9. He knows how to rock and she knows how to give life Will and Matt from W.I.T.C.H
10. He's a prince after all, and turns out she's actually a princess too Sky and Bloom from Winx Club
11. He doesn't talk much and he can talk all day Heero and Duo from Gundam Wing
12. Mr. Loner and Miss. Congeniality Squall and Rinoa from FFVIII
13. He mangles the English language and she speaks it backwards Robin and Zatanna from Young Justice
14. He's number two and she's number four
15. He never plans and she's mature for her age Snow and Serah from Final Fantasy XIII
16. The wind and the ocean Haruka and Michiru from Sailor Moon
17. He thinks too much and she thinks with her fist Tim and Steph from DC comics
18. He's got a lot of Hawaiian shirts and she can break him with her pinkie
19. He was the greatest and best and he was a dirty fighter who prized his face Kunzite and Zoicite from Sailor Moon
20. She's an alien and he is too... kind of. Superboy and M'gann from Young Justice

Some of these are easy, some of these might not be quite so easy. I tried to make them easy-ish though.

PS: Belated happy Turkey day to those into that sorta thing

So while I haven't read all 52 of the nu!52 titles DC has done for their relaunch I've read 36 of them. So let's have a nice chat shall we? 

This is... probably going to take a while. 36 titles is a lot to talk about.

Lots of text and lots of opinions. Some strong and some not so strong. )

Okay so I ran out of stream there with the last few as it probably shows. But oh well.

So if it's not obvious I actually buy: Supergirl and Teen Titans right now. I'll be adding Superboy and maybe Batman and/or Aquaman to this. Otherwise that's probably it and the only thing I buy is Young Justice which wasn't touched by the reboot

my thread here

I'm also offering graphics and fanfiction at [ profile] help_japan

Otherwise known a Colleen is going to have no life for the next few weeks what was she thinking?! That aid, it's a super good cause so if you have any cash to spare I'd strongly urge you to offer some support. If not from me then from someone. There' a lot of great people who've made offers at both places and the end results are totally worth the money. I wish I had some money to buy shiny stuff. :(

Took forever, but new mood theme is up. Still not 100% happy with it, but when am I ever?  I'll work on updating my icons and possibly yet another layout after I've had some sleep.

That's 5 episodes of Shiki I've sat through now Mia, don't think I'm letting you out on your promise. Man, this show totally isn't one of my preferred genres at all. It's not bad, just not the sort of thing I typically enjoy watching. The mystery to it's actually pretty cool so far. Guess that's to be expected from a Noitamina, right?

Goodnight livejournal.... zzzz

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 12 → Whatever tickles your fancy

First off, it's sad but my reaction to Day 13 was initially "Omg yay I get to make up a book!  8D" Until I realized that it meant a book that's fictional. Boo.
Actual details and stuff under here )

▮ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
▮ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
▮ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

1. Create a graphic (200 x 200 max size) to represent your personal "candy". It should have your username on it, but otherwise can feature whatever you want. Make it something special since it's self-representative.
2. Make a post with the subject "trick or treat?". Put your "candy" somewhere in it, and be sure to repost these instructions.
3. Then, go around other people's LJs and reply to them with either "trick" or "treat". If you reply with "trick", they will give you an LJ dare that you have to perform before taking their candy. If you're too wimpy for that, simply say "treat" and take their candy.
4. List all your collected candies in your original "trick or treat?" post to show off your collection, being sure not to direct-link!

Buh. Temporarily dropping the last chapters of Inuyasha for the sole reason that whoever subs them sucks and I can't read it half the time.

Pick ten fictional characters that you would sleep with and list them in your journal. (One of these is an odd one out)
What do you mean I'm predictable?! )
