Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Discussing Tales of the Abyss with your siblings will give situations like THIS:

me: [discussing Eldrant]
Sibling: You know what Asch and Luke should have done? They should have built a MACHINE GUN.
Me: ... ... ...
Perhaps it is wise to say now that I come from an XBOX family.

Today I was having dinner with my family and my Dad asked what a particular dish was made of, and I... I...

I almost said buusagi. :(((((((( I AM NOT HAPPY. This is as bad as the time I was talking to my housemate about Harrogate (a very cold place up in the north of England where she used to go to school), and I was, "Oh, when you lived in -" VERY LONG PAUSE, because the next word was going to be KETELBURG.

This is also just like the time that Niisan and I were in the computer lab, and I asked her, "Are we going to be able to get -" VERY VERY LONG PAUSE, "... I was going to ask you whether we were going to get to the Abyss on time. I meant Forbidden Planet."



YESTERDAY WAS LOVE, THOUGH. It is good to be among people who are okay with you even if you are more than a bit... obsessed.

Seph-sama: [footballer's name]
Kaasan: I thought you said Tezuka.
Me: I thought you said replica.
Niisan: ... Freud would have a field day with the two of you.

Seph-sama: *looking at menu* ... Every time I see mushrooms, I -
Me: Think of a particular road. I know. Me too.
Seph-sama and me: :D :D :D

THE KING AND THE CLOWN MENTIONS AN ABYSS THREE TIMES, and every time the word appeared THERE WERE THREE PAIRS OF EYES LOOKING MY WAY. ♥



I was asking my MACHINE GUN ABYSS brother for book recommendations, and he was, "R.A. Salvatore", and brought me two books which were called The Promise of the Witch-King and The Paths of Darkness, but which I subsequently discovered should have been titled MUCH ADO ABOUT REPLICAS and MY LIFE IN THE ABYSS.

A brief summary of the plot of

MUCH ADO ABOUT REPLICAS, or 'The Promise of the Witch-King'.

Jarlaxle and Entrerei: *destroy a tower*
*NEW TOWER ARISES*
Jarlaxle and Entrerei: ... WHAT, AGAIN. HEY, IT LOOKS JUST THE SAME. OH NO, IT'S A REPLICA.
Stupid people who are the cause of the whole problem: THIS LOOKS LIKE A REPLICA OF THE OTHER TOWER.
Smarter people who have to fix the problem: WELL IT IS A REPLICA.

Jarlaxle: *CREATES A MAGICAL ABYSS pit in the ground by virtue of magic trick*
Halflings: *FALL INTO SAID PIT*
Halfling leader which did not fall into pit: WHAT IN THE 666 LAYERS OF THE ABYSS IS THIS.

*two suspicious individuals are wearing the same rings*
Jarlaxle: This is suspicious. *inspects individual #1* Hmm. This ring. THE OTHER ONE IS WEARING A REPLICA.

Jarlaxle: *steals Entrerei's original flute, makes replica, substitutes original, doesn't let Entrerei know.*
Entrerei: *plays flute* ... D8... SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE.
Jarlaxle AT THE END OF THE BOOK: *tosses the original back to Entrerei*
Entrerei: D8.... D8... D8.... =_____=



The Paths of Darkness, is about THIS GUY, who was IMPRISONED IN THE ABYSS for six years, and the introduction is all EMO EMO YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE IN THE ABYSS... Everywhere I go I am CONFRONTED by my MEMORIES OF THE ABYSS... The Abyss will NEVER leave me... Cue 8,00000000 flashbacks to MY LIFE IN THE ABYSS.



Also, you discover that Jarlaxle's idea of saying I love you appears to be stealing valuable objects, making replicas out of said originals and giving the replicas to Entrerei.



I was watching Hamlet with my brother, and we were analysing the film. There's the scene where we first see Hamlet, and I was, "Everyone else is wearing red and white. Hamlet stands out because he's the only one dressed all in black, because he is emo." That said, Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet is amazing. It's a four-hour movie, but it's worth it. We've been watching it one disc at a time, 'cause there's so much to absorb. Alan Rickman (!!!!!) and Keanu Reeves also played Hamlet.

And after Hamlet's murder of Polonius, he is in towering rage and confronting his erstwhile friends (who are being used by the King as spies), and he roars: "What replication should be made by the son of a king?"

And today I woke up to find (many thanks to sarah531, here! *grin*) that the Spider-man 3 trailer is up on the official site.








I dreamt that Lin and I were in Piccadilly Circus in London, having tea with Ian McKellen. TWO IAN MCKELLENS. There was a nice Ian McKellen (like the way he was when he was having tea in the Da Vinci Code) and a cranky Ian McKellen (who stood up towards the end of my dream and said he was going to get tea, because he could NOT go on with NO TEA). He went off down towards Leicester Square, and I stood up straightaway and said Okay! I'll go get cakes then! and went off in a TOTALLY OPPOSITE direction from him, and walked up Regent Street. I let Lin have alone time with Nice!Ian.


The moral of this story is, never read the Tales of the Abyss English translation before you go to bed. You will end up with dreams like that.

You are back! Ping me, damnit. I sent you a mail. Not sure if I got the email address right.
28th-Jun-2006 04:38 pm (UTC) - MY BAD T_T
*PINGS AWAY HAPPILY* You got the email address right! ARGH, MY APOLOGIES. *PINGS* I'm here, though for a while both my brothers were back, so I was with my family a lot. :D :D :D

28th-Jun-2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
...Twooooo Ian McKellens o_o Sounds like fun, I can imagine cranky!Ian quite easily. xP I have commented to my sister that her car runs like the Tartaros. >.> Hurrah for fandom crossing the boundary into daily life~ Like the time a friend and I giggled while reading the inferno, because of the Abyss between the 7th and 8th levels, or something. We also assigned Org members to each level based on their number. And then there was DNA/RNA Replication, and me silently whispering "repurikaaa!" to myself >.>

You should join us for our next paintchat. I wanna draw Spidervan. :D
28th-Jun-2006 04:43 pm (UTC) - *BEAMS AND WAVES*
I suspect it was the result of watching X-Men 3 and the Da Vinci code somewhat back-to-back. Cranky!Ian's brilliant, though, you want to sit there and cheer him on, even when he's being impossible, 'cause he's that good. *grin* That's for the Da Vinci Code.

*laughing!* It is wonderful when you have siblings you share a love for a series with, because you can see something and it will ping you both, and you get things other people wouldn't get.

; ) Dante talks about the Abyss too, eh? MAYBE I'LL LOOK INTO HIM NOW. I couldn't really get into the Divine Comedy, but then I didn't quite like his style of writing. I HAVE AN IMPETUS TO DO SO NOW, THOUGH. ; )

!!!!! DNA/RNA REPLICATION? NOW I WANT TO GO AND STUDY THAT. It was horrible when I was studying intellectual property law and the WHOLE THING was ORIGINALS BETTER THAN REPLICAS, YEAH. It was so soul-destroying. And trademark law in India actually explicitly states, "A mark doesn't have to be a perfect replica to infringe on the original." I was *staggers away from article, brain breaking*.

YOU SHOULD TOTALLY DRAW SPIDER-VAN. XDDDD I SAW THE LOGS. THEY WERE SO FUNNY. XDDDD BUT I CAN'T DRAW. I WILL JUST HAVE TO SIT THERE AND MAKE CRACK REMARKS. XD
28th-Jun-2006 04:39 pm (UTC)
I love the trailer. So so much ♥

And it's so nice to see you blogging again *hughug* :D
28th-Jun-2006 04:45 pm (UTC) - *BEAMS AND HUGS*
*HUGS YOU SO TIGHTLY TOO* Was eaten alive by exams. *ATTACHES SELF TO LJ*

I love the trailer too! When I saw it I was YELLS FOR SIBLING TO COME WATCH IT TOO. It's Venom, it's gonna be great. ♥ IT'S SUCH A PITY I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR TO SEE THIS MOVIE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE KEEPING ME HYPED UP FOR A YEAR?!?!?!

I NEED TO POST YOU STUFF. I AM THE WORST PROCRASTINATOR IN THE WORLD.
28th-Jun-2006 04:44 pm (UTC) - xD Hi! At mom's place, obsessively using her laptop. *ded*
YAY THERE IS NO LONGER A HUGE ASS LINK TO MY LJ ON TOP OF YOUR JOURNAL! *gaspshock* xD

.. At least you left me with the nice Ian. xD You know if you hadn't woken up, the dream would go on with YOU SLEEPING ON THE COUCH THAT NIGHT. *g*

There was an abyss!mention in the HP fic I was reading at home that made me go OMG TOA!! ... BUT YOU ARE SO MANY TIMES WORSE. My god, woman, you're OBSESSED. XD I LOVE EET. It is ALL YOUR FAULT that I started saying "mijn cheegle" to Paris. :P
28th-Jun-2006 04:51 pm (UTC) - YOU ARE AS BAD AS ME XD
BUT IT IS SYMBOLIC OF OUR CONNECTION. I DO NOT SEE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT HUGE-ASS LINK. MAYBE I SHOULD REPLICATE IT.

... *BURSTS OUT LAUGHING* You know, the couch is MY PERMANENT HOME or something when you're around.

OH MY GOD AT LUNCH THE OTHER DAY I was talking about you and my dad was: "So how did you meet Lin? On the Internet?"

And I was, "... yes."

And my dad was, "So when you meet on the Internet you can become such close friends, that is very good."

And I was... SO RELIEVED... my family took my meeting you on the Net quite well.

... HAHAHAHA my brother was trying to fix the screen when we were watching Hamlet, and his attempts to fix it kept making the screen go black, and I intoned, by way of protest, "SUDDENLY IN DARKNESS, AS IF ONE HAD FALLEN INTO AN ABYSS."

Brother: ... BE QUIET... .... *grudgingly* That was quite good, actually.

HAHAHAHA.

I AM SO SORRY FOR BEING OBSESSED BUT I JUST HAD TO SAY IT OR I WOULD EXPLODE. XD

BUT HE REALLY IS YOUR CHEEGLE.

EVEN DOWN TO THE SQUEAKING AND THE FLOPPY EARS.
28th-Jun-2006 04:55 pm (UTC)
Wow, you're alive O_O. Either that, or I missed a whole heap of filtered entries. But yes, Hamlet is emo boy wangst love <3 the original my life is woe and sorrow story~
28th-Jun-2006 05:39 pm (UTC) - *MAKES HOUSE LOOK UP AT WILSON YONDER*
I know I'm House/Chase but I'll House/Wilson for you. WE WILL SHIP THE SAME PAIRING ONE DAY. *HUGS*

I actually started watching House for House/Wilson. *hides*

I'm alive! *hugs tight!* XD Or rather, coming to life. *grin*

XD Anything that's filtered on this LJ, you'll see! ; )

XD HAMLET BRINGS EMO TO NEW HEIGHTS. XD Although what I loved about him was his RAGE!!!! I WILL HAVE MY VENGEANCE!!! - when he was thinking about vengeance and not wangst, that is. Hamlet's emo brought down Denmark, my heavens. ; )

*HUGS YOU TIGHT*
28th-Jun-2006 04:57 pm (UTC)
YOU'RE LJING AGAIN XD~

almost saying buusagi, omg...
that's as bad as when i almost called my dad a character i really liked XD

oh chris ;~; abyss is taking over your life
28th-Jun-2006 05:30 pm (UTC)
OH BTW
you're gonna kill me for this XD but i've been wondering about the words used in abyss

... like, i have no idea what kuzu means. D:

*bricked*
28th-Jun-2006 05:00 pm (UTC)
YOUR POST IS SO PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. :D

I am the same way with fandoms; select fandom words always seem to wiggle their ways into my sentences when they are NOT WANTED. Although they seem to ambush in the form of typos much more frequently. XD;

*perks at your "replica" dialog" I have a song entitled "Replica". It probably doesn't fit in context *laughs* but here are some of the lyrics, anyway. Maybe I can upload the song if it fits well enough? XD

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind
your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the
meaning of this all. Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of
what I used to be. It's easier if you don't see me
standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit
here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steel, the kind the bullets
cannot see

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

SPIDER-MAN 3 TRAILER. *FANGIRLS IT*

28th-Jun-2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
HI I AM NOT AS BAD AS CHRIS, don't listen to her! BUT OH GOD. YOU. NO WORDS.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...


<3333333 A REPLICA SONG!!

:D YOU WIN.

Who's it by? XD I'm totally getting this on iTunes later, if I can!

Oh, kuzu, if you're reading this.. What was that Ultraviolet song we were listening to in Forbidden Planet? I liked it. *hides*
28th-Jun-2006 05:06 pm (UTC)
Aahaha, relating Abyss to everything is so much fun.
But I must admit I was a little scared of myself when I wrote "...and Pompeii was covered in Asch..." by accident...xDD;
And some people in my dance class now say "Oh my Guy!" instead of "Oh my God!" when they're around me, because of the million times I had "GUY" written huge on my arm. 8D
And I agree with broken_melodie on the DNA replication thing, I was DYING SO DEAD during that unit.
28th-Jun-2006 05:42 pm (UTC) - ASCH SHOULD BE ALL OVER POMPEII. XD
ASCH IS THE WORD I MOST COMMONLY MISPELL, TOO. I can even typo SCHOOL to read ASCH, by hitting A before the SCH.

I think all of us can write a very, very comprehensive YOU KNOW YOU'RE OBSESSED WITH TOA WHEN guide.

I think it's really fun that the people in your dance class know what to say around you! *grin* I suddenly have the compulsion to take a marker and scribble - ... I must stop that thought right there. ;)

Isn't it the best when you're studying/going to school with people who get you? *grin* ♥
28th-Jun-2006 06:05 pm (UTC)
That was like the most entertaining relate-your-everyday-contacts-to-tota entry I've ever read LOL.
LIEK REALLY, WHAT'S UP WITH TEH ABYSS 8D?
Minus the fact that it creates a great story with multi-pairing crack, mwahaha 8D.

And thanks for the titles of those two books, I shall have a lot to do in the summer reading those two books, mwahahaha >D >D >D.
Yes, I am a slow reader when it comes to English, hahaha.
29th-Jun-2006 02:51 pm (UTC) - *GRIIIIN*
XDDDD THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm glad that my affliction with ToA has been of amusement! *grin* IT EATS MY MIND ALIVE, OTHERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO LAUGH AT IT. XD

I DON'T KNOW, MAN - DUDE, WHERE'S MY ABYSS? xD

I love Everybody X Luke, Luke X Everybody. That is the way to go. *evil grin*

*grin* No problem! ; ) Although the ABYSS book, Paths of Darkness, is really about other things as well. The guy who is LOST TO THE ABYSS is maybe about 30% of the story, although the others happily angst about him and the Abyss, too. Like OH NOES WHY COULD WE NOT SAVE HIM FROM THE ABYSS. xD

I'm a slow reader when it comes to Chinese. ; )
28th-Jun-2006 06:08 pm (UTC)
Well you really are very abyss obsessed XDDDD so... you already know all the story but haven't played the game? wow XD I couln't do that because i hate spoiling me thnigs >.> but I always end with a lot of spoilers of everything XD lol well keep having fun =P see you later!
29th-Jun-2006 02:53 pm (UTC) - Your icon makes me HAPPY. :D
*grin* I know all the story, and I've only played the game for about five hours. *laughter* I just found out everything I could about this game, and also I had a really good Abyss teacher. *grin*

Oops - I happen to adore spoilers, so I'll keep that in mind when writing. I usually put spoilers behind a cut - I was very strictly spoiler-warned when it came to this game. ; )

See you later, too! *smiles*
28th-Jun-2006 07:29 pm (UTC)
You better not be a replica.

Some LJ comm going by "Oh no they didn't" or something like that, posted some more Spidey photos about a couple of weeks ago. And someone was pointing out the spidey-bulge to me, because you know, it's fun to do that especially after Supes. But Spidey's looked normal to me. So I don't see the fuss.

*huggles*
29th-Jun-2006 02:55 pm (UTC) - *grin* When replying to this, the header on my LJ gave me the original. xD
I prefer the replica, for this game. *grin* But you know me, you'll know! *grin*

OH YES! ohnotheydidnt! ; ) The community everyone checks out for celebrity news. xD Actually, Superman's tights didn't look that terrifying to me, but perhaps I should have looked harder. ; )

At least Superman didn't have to stuff his pants with socks ; )

*hugs you too!* You'll be back soon! *smiles* I was just telling Isil that you'll be back and we can all go hang out together! *grin*

29th-Jun-2006 02:57 pm (UTC) - Jarlaxle/Entrerei FOR THE WIN
*hugs you so tightly and beams!* I had no idea you were into Jarlaxle and Entrerei! I was just reading this book and thinking, This could NOT be any more slashy than it already is. *grin*

Didn't know you read R A Salvatore too! His books fill me with a mixed sense of ARGH!! and YAY!!, because at times I think his writing style could seriously be improved, and at others, I can't help but admire his ideas.

*hugs tight*

28th-Jun-2006 11:59 pm (UTC) - L.A.E.B.I.K.
Let's all eat buusagi in Ketelburk.

.....

You know, I find that it's better to just say it instead of stifling yourself. I mean, either way you get weird looks. ::shrug.:: >_>

As for the machine gun thing, oh god. My brother is the same way. XD;;; I feel your pain.
29th-Jun-2006 12:09 am (UTC) - Re: L.A.E.B.I.K.
P.S. You should come to our next Pchat session (if it's possible for you), this upcoming Saturday evening/night!! I'd love for you to join in on the cracky Abyss fun. XDXD
29th-Jun-2006 12:04 am (UTC)
Yay this is the real Aefallen and not a replica! That Spidey trailer is *_*

I didn't think they'd introduce so many new characters, but it really looks like they've ramped up the budget.

Hope to catch you online soon, watch out for evil Ian McKellen replicas!
29th-Jun-2006 03:03 pm (UTC) - My icon = twin to your icon xD
HELLO MY PADAWAN. XD DOES THIS NOT REMIND YOU OF ATTACK OF THE CLONES. XD I MEAN, REPLICAS. XD

That Spider-man trailer is gorgeous. ; ) OH WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR FOR IT. WHYYYYY. XD

I didn't realise until you said so that they introduced a whole slew of new characters! I mean, they're gonna have Venom and Sandman and Gwen, and that's a whole lot, considering they're also dealing with Harry turning into the Hobgoblin. *whistles* I hope Gwen sticks around for a bit. Be such a shame to refrigerate her.

XDDDDD I HOPE SO TOO! XD DON'T WORRY, I'LL STAY AWAY FROM THE EVIL MCKELLENS AND STAY WITH THE NICE ONES! XD
29th-Jun-2006 12:40 am (UTC)
LOL
*hugs you* XD
CHRIS! *HEART*
29th-Jun-2006 03:17 pm (UTC) - HELLO DEAR XDDD
*HUGS YOU TIGHT TOO* HI, JEN! *BEAMS*

</b>♥</b>

*EMITS HEARTS AT YOU EVEN IF I AM ONLY A COMMONER* XDDDDDDDDD

SEE, THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD OR SHOULD NOT PLAY ABYSS, YOU END UP AS CRAZY AS ME, AND I DON'T EVEN OWN A PLAYSTATION. XD
