What free time I have these days is divided between Supernatural and FFXII. I'd write about work, only listing everything I have to do and have done tends to make me feel tired. *laughing* Scored an A on my International Commercial Litigation assignment, though, to my deep shock: I completed that assignment on no sleep, surviving on hot water and Supernatural fic. Also attended an utterly fascinating lecture with elvaron
on intellectual property in Japan: the lecturer gave us this great link for translated Japanese legislation: I'll hunt it up and put it here one day, it's great stuff. I think I shall go and read the Japanese penal statute for fun!
I love watching Supernatural
with the brothers, but the one thing we are divided upon are the chick-flick moments. I love them, and my brothers want to adamantly fast-forward through them. When one turns up my brothers groan "CHICK-FLICK MOMENT" D< before Dean can even open his mouth, whereas I'm emitting hearts at the screen. Kinda reminds me of the way raethes
describes me when I light up about fandom: "The entire background went pink."
And because raethes
and I thought this should be shared with all of you: the REAL reason YSI accounts get exceeded for downloading
aefallen: MY YSI DOWNLOAD LIMIT HAS EXCEEDED
OPS OMG SORRY
aefallen: there goes my dreams of scanning the original ion + arietta booklet!!
at least until the end of this week, or something.
sharing abyss downloads always seems to break my ysi account 0_0
BOTH YSI ACCOUNTS, AT THAT
OOPS OMG SORRY. THIS YSI ACCOUNT HAS BEEN ALL KUZU'D OUT.
Raethes: "HAY WASSUP. THIS YSI ACCOUNT HAS BEEN CHOUSHINDOU'D. BAI ^_^"
aefallen: this account now belongs to LORELAI
THIS ACCOUNT HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN
IT HAS BEEN REPLICATING TOO MANY COPIES OF THE FILE YOU UPLOADED
THE ORIGINAL IS VERY ANGRY
Raethes: Poor original
Raethes: His replicas are getting out of hand?!
Raethes: ORIGINAL RAR: KUZU REPLICAS
Raethes: REPLICA ZIP: JUST BECAUSE I'M A ZIP FILE DOESN'T MEAN I'M LESS SPECIAL THAN YOU ARE!
aefallen: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *BURSTS OUT LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY*
RAR: YOU ARE ONLY A DETERIORATING COPY
ZIP: AT LEAST EVERYONE CAN GET ACCESS TO ME
replica: I AM JUST THE SAME AS YOU
original: YOU ARE NOT AT ALL THE SAME AS ME
Raethes: OH MAN
Raethes: THIS LOG MUST BE POSTED TO LJ
Raethes: UH THE RAR/ZIP PART
says, Just because I'm a zip file doesn't mean I'm less special than you are. D< HOW TRUE.
Also, have some Abyss Anthology scans
(sendspace). This is from one of the original anthologies - I chose this one based on Maximum Mieu content. I scanned them last year and never did get around to uploading them til now.
and I were discussing, and we came up with:
This happened when I told El that I'd come stalk her and write her Mary Sues if she didn't eat her dinner, and this happened: elvaron
: Asch says that Luke is his Mary Sue.aefallen
Luke: I will sacrifice myself to save you!
Luke: And sacrifice myself to save the world!
Luke: And everybody in my party LOVES me! Even if they didn't love me at first, they all love me in the end!
Asch: [is beyond expressing opinions]
Luke: I have an inferiority complex and need a good kick sometimes!
Luke: And I'm a redhead!
Asch: MARY SUE DRECK.
El: You forgot the whole ANGSTY PAST THING.
And the AMNESIA.
And the obligatory cute but useless sidekick!harajukufuuri
: ohshit, Truth.
FFXII-wise, we just hit the Fon Coast two nights ago. Was looking forward to the Moogle Quest (basically, nine moogles are off slacking in the forest, and to advance the game, you need to find all nine. To my great annoyance, you do not have to find the nine individually! They are found in groups in four locations! I wanted nine locations! But there were lots and lots of moogles, so, not very much to complain about)
Balthier cutscene with Ashe once we hit the Fon Coast, where Balthier talks about his father. Amazing
. I didn't have much feeling for Balthier to begin with, but man, that scene could mean a change of heart sometime soon. It was very well done.
Raced down to Kino to pick up the 6th Abyss novel today, I should scan it sometime soon! sistaofpeace1
has the colour scans up here
for the first time yesterday, AND!! finally caught up with harajukufuuri
! ♥ (We will certainly meet for much longer next time, sensei
. ♥ We're going to watch Play: A Videogame Symphony
. There's gonna be Final Fantasy and World of Warcraft music! Come with, if you like, all of us are gonna be there, along with elvaron
! SISTIC booking procedures are utter dreck, although it wasn't the fault of the staff. baka_neko
had to leave (I hope you're feeling better soon!), but I, harajukufuuri
hung out for dinner and it was great! *grin* Went over to reisha
's house later, and had an amazing time! We were in the middle of talking about an AU Abyss fanfic in Japanese about replica!Guy when we got to here place and I was overwhelmed by her lovely dogs. Also she gave me this amazing education about all the AU Abyss fanfiction that can be found in Japanese, my favourite of which was
girl!Rokujinshou!Luke, which goes along the lines of:
Fomicry: *GOES WRONG*
Fontechs: "... well, you have a lovely girl."
Van: "I can't return him to the Fabre household like this, can I?"
So the rightful Luke gets returned, and the personality we know as Luke stays in Malkuth. As a girl. Who later becomes part of the Rokujinshou.
♥ I LOVE THIS STUFF, MAN. reisha
's also pretty darn good at Abyss sites. *grin*
Abyss fans are welcome at my home anytime. ♥ Non-Abyss fans
will be forcibly abducted
are also welcome! ♥
