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

Got asked today... well yesterday now but w/e, about if I had a Plurk and after feeling dumb for going "what is that exactly? D:" I realized I'd looked at it once before and then written it off. rofl

However in the interest of following the crowd and being a good little lemming (and figuring out why plurk), I bring you this...

Edit: So apparently LJ doesn't like the plurk widget thing. Who knew? Much less witty, but here have a link.

Also, that one meme is boring. I think I'm going to drop it in interest of actually finding things to talk about. /le gasp

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 )

Below the cut, I'm going to list a total of 20 characters (10 male, 10 female). Your job, if you choose to accept it, is to pick any two of the characters and give me a line of dialogue/song/quote. I will attempt to write something for those two characters interacting.

... I need to get more guy muses and the like seriously )

Long time no see. Just haven't had anything to post lately I guess. Still don't but I figured I ought to at least make up something in the least.

Still jobless, still looking, and all that stuff. Hard to look when you're carless and can't really walk to anywhere because of the fact that you've got a crappy leg that'd probably try giving out before I got to the stores and places to apply there.

Still haven't heard anything from that group interview, so I'm going to say that's a no go considering it's been at least two weeks. Put in an application yesterday for this at home customer service gig that sounded promising. A local friend of mine started her training for it today which is how I heard about it. Yes I'm being petty but I don't see how I can't get it if she can get hired there as my techie stats are quite a bit higher than hers last I knew. Not that I'm going to tell her that.

So.. let's talk rp since that's mainly what I spend my time doing right now.

[livejournal.com profile] xi_rpg . Words can't even express how I feel about this place man, I can't even... the level of amazing I've had here in the last almost two weeks is just mind blowing. I still miss [livejournal.com profile] theoregontrail but not half as much as I used to. Now it's more just because I miss the CR I had at TOT. Otherwise XI's already given me more than TOT ever did. I imagine it's more like TOT could have been if it was active and had the player base. I can't wait for applications to open up next. I'm still not sure who exactly I want to app. I keep flip flopping about who I really want to play. I've only got 6 slots after all and I've already filled two of them. That means I've only got 4 more characters and there's so many people I want to play!

Characters I've been considering apping:snip snip snip )

See? I've got 4 slots but so many ideas! I don't even know what my head's thinking right now. Gah. Also? Anita would definitely be from early book canon. No way I'm putting a succubus into a school.

[livejournal.com profile] mayfield_rpg . I'm beginning to think that putting Hachi Nana there was a considerable error in my judgment. One I'll just have to live with for now since things seem to be balancing out for the most part. Not to mention things in her house are finally starting to get interesting.

Characters I might be apping here: Rin Tohsaka (Fate/Stay Night) or Tomoyo Sakagami (Clannad)

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!

Really, I'll answer honestly and everything! You can ask whatever you want and as many questions as you want. (I do ,however,reserve the right to kick your ass if you're being a pain. This only applies to two specific people. Everyone else can ignore this. I'm looking at you Jagged and Jackk.)

Going to make this public so that everyone can ask questions. Might be opening a bad kettle of fish but we'll see.

Also, anyone who uses it feel free to stalk me on ColourLovers.

Ffff. I like that palette. I'm tempted to see about making a layout here with it.
