Supernatural - No Dude I Love YOU more
I have been WELL AND TRULY PUNISHED for the Gods of Fandom for the whole YGO thing. (That, or blessed, in a rather unique way) For today, WHAT DID I FIND when I opened up the long questions for my Civil Procedure paper but a VERY LONG QUESTION on, guess what, the outcome of a legal suit against a company producing playing cards. There was even one real special question about how said company produces extremely valuable playing cards and how they're all lying in this factory, asking you how you get your hands on them! Legally, of course. So there I was writing about seizing playing cards for a practical law examination.

And as I sat through the three-hour long exam, I couldn't help but wonder how that "screw the money" adage simply doesn't apply to law. Let me explain. Civil procedure is governed by the Rules of Court, which consist of approximately ninety-seven Orders. Each order has roughly ten rules. Some have twenty, some have nine - it averages out to about ten. That makes over a thousand rules in the Rules of Court. So you see: when it comes to law - the rules screw you.

But after-that made up for it, though: Went for lunch with velithya, reisha and elvaron, which was fabulous and great and all kinds of wonderful. Also! I have located the Sam screenshot of LAWTASTIC GOODNESS! In What Was And What Should Not Be, Sam Winchester is reading Criminal Law and Procedure. WHEN TWO LOVES COLLIDE ♥)

The only thing that made me :((( was that El had to go after, but it was so fun having lunch with people when your minds all come from the same wonderful place. ♥ Then reisha took us to the Sony store, where we went and admired the promos for Devil May Cry 4, and this fascinating new game which reisha introduced to me: The Eye of Judgment. Which I thought was INCREDIBLY COOL.

What it is can best be described by the conversation between my brother and I:

Me: *describes*
Sibling: It's like Fushigi Yuugi!
Me: ... D:
Sibling: No! I mean, Yu-Gi-Oh!
Me: ... yeah, kinda.

EXCEPT IT IS 3-D AND SO COOL. Extensive (and objective) review here. Says that it was created with help from the people behind Wizards of the Coast - in other words, those evil people behind Magic: The Gathering. llamrei tells me that the YGO card game was indeed based on that, which EXPLAINS why I found the game so familiar and so easy to take to.

Both siblings and I were into Magic: The Gathering when we were younger. Family obsessions are always the best: the nearest fan is just right next to you. XD The sibling got me into it, and then all three of us were into it. The youngest had the best cards, and I think I didn't love the game quite so much as to want to spend much money on it, so I made do with the cards my brothers didn't want or those that they gave me. But it was fun. I'm not good at games: I want to win too much, and I tend not to enjoy myself - and I'm not that great a player. But it did make my occasional win all the sweeter. A conventional magic game would start off with us at 40 life each - which meant that the game could go ON AND ON FOR HOURS. AND DID. Lucky we were all at home, so there was no question of needing to be back at a certain time! XD When we wanted a quick game we'd start at 20 life.

Just reading YGO has been giving me all these happy memories back, so I'll always be grateful to it for that. XD Except that the game in YGO IS SO MUCH EASIER because it HAD NO LANDS AND MANA REQUIREMENTS TO SUMMON CREATURES ARGHHH THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW LUCKY THEY ARE. < / ex-Magic geek >

Amusingly, the song playing in : this trailer is Stone Sour's Reborn. Which leads me on to:

reisha. ALSO. introduced me to this video, which I feel is my DUTY to share with the world. Have the REBORN OURAN HOST CLUB VIDEO. OH MY GOD. *falls in love!* And then reisha introduced V and me to EVEN MORE REBORN CRACK, which included, among other things, me reading my first chapter of the Reborn manga, her breaking our brains on THIS COMMUNITY: reborn_caps: especially THIS and THIS wtf NOT BRAINSAFE AT ALL BUT SO FUNNY! Have decided I like Squalo, he's adorable! He's visually a combination of Kanda and Sephiroth - except with EVEN MORE BATSHIT CRAZY AND ON CRACK!

velithya showed us THIS MOST AMAZING SUPERNATURAL/AMERICAN GODS FIC, which you simply must read. GO GO GO READ IT NOW. ♥

AND THEN she showed us the WinCon American Fic Idol BadFic contest. Spectacularly and intentionally bad Supernatural fic. I'd actually already read missyjack's Welcome to the Winchester's Black Parade, but if you like, you may also have the leopard pr0n and Impala!preg fic. I could go on forever, but to sum it up: FABULOUS, FABULOUS EXPERIENCE, WOULD DO AGAIN, LAUGHED SO HARD. Favourite part of the readings? The totally deadpan and absolutely fabulous lady who read all this badfic out loud in a room of some nearly 200 people, and never once lost her cool.

And my brain is now broken in more places than I realised it even had. ♥!

In pursuance of our conversation about fic today, have the following links:
Kingdom Hearts
That merman!RikuXSora fic was by karmacitadelfic, but it is sadly locked! In recompense, have One-sentence Sora X Donald Duck, Demyx x Sitar, and my personal favourite, one-sentence Cactuar X Sephiroth. And Axel/Sora: Stand In, Axel/Sora one-sentence (yes, I take what I can get!).

Supernatural fic
That fic about the flushing toilet!ghost. Comes with very pretty fic-related photos (not of toilets)! Also have that time Dean turned into a cat.

Only Kaiba can do the rule screwing around here!

And OMG I saw that Eye of Judgement game and was pretty stoked...even if I suck at card games! D: First thing I did was turn to my co-worker and say, "All we need is a Yugioh version of this and it'll be JUST like the show!"
1st-Dec-2007 05:36 pm (UTC)
XDDDD TRUE THAT. XD Though in my head Kaiba pays his lawyers to screw the rules on his behalf! He has too much money to bother screwing them himself! XDDDD

You too? *griiin* I'm so glad to hear I'm not alone on this one! I suck at card games too, so you aren't alone there, either! XDDD

THAT IS SO TRUE. It will be EXACTLY LIKE THE SHOW - EXCEPT IN REAL LIFE. I feel so happy to come into contact with both series virtually simultaneously at this point in gaming history!

spn_gaiman. If you're into that sort of thing. ;)
1st-Dec-2007 05:38 pm (UTC)
! I didn't know it existed, actually! Thank you for the link! *beams* I seem to be finding it a little difficult to find actual links to the stories for the ficathon, but I'm sure if I keep at it I will find them!

Whuuuuut? I thought normal lives were just 20 points not 40? Hahahah if you had versus me back then it'll take at least a DAY then since I like to increase lives with white creatures and do healing.

Sibling: It's like Fushigi Yuugi!


Ahahaha I ljed about EOJ before, sadly, I have no PS3 and if I want to play it, I hope cineleisure gets the machine and all since it's funner to play with random people and bring your cards etc, like them random fights in cartoons.

(Random note: on the NDS lite, the Yu-Gi-Oh game is around and you can versus anyone else who has an NDS too.)

w-what did I just read *traumatized*
1st-Dec-2007 03:23 pm (UTC) - XD!
By the time you read this, you're probably safely back home! Hope you had a great flight! ;)

... What did you just read? XD The reaction is making me curious. ;)
1st-Dec-2007 05:45 am (UTC)
I need a PS3. But where got time to play? ._. Used to be rather into Magic as well, but the need to get new cards every couple of months to stay competitive gradually took a toll on me, so me and my friends just slowly withdrew from it.

There was a Sony media event some time ago where they demoed Eye of Judgement - I even had the chance for some hands-on. Didn't like its sloppy recognition, but I hope it's much improved in the retail version.
1st-Dec-2007 05:46 am (UTC)
And please do share more about this Supernatural TV show. =DDD Wiki doesn't sound that compelling.
1st-Dec-2007 02:06 pm (UTC)
chris! you played magic! and probably more than me too ;___; only i inherited cards from a cousin and not a brother; i'm still trying to sell off his necropotence, ahaha. OTL

eye of judgement - that's the game played with a camera pointed at the board, right? i remember reading about it on gaygamer before it came out, but wow, it's been some time already >___<

reisha could probably take over the world ;____; she tried to get me into reborn, but faled, but now that it has been verified to be the Real Crack, i shall make a pass at it after i'm done catching up with ouran, hee. (also that video is heinously appropriate D: D: D: writing about it after i finish commenting here and there)

and, at least your exams are, um, fulfilling? that question would've killed me, ahahaha. XDDDD
1st-Dec-2007 02:23 pm (UTC) - HELLO THERE YOU! *HUGS YOU TIIIIGHT* (omg and when is your last paper over?)
I did! YOU PLAYED MAGIC TOO? ♥ We probably played about the same amount: I must have only played about ten-to-twenty games, give or take, my entire life? A proper magic game is such an exhausting thing!

omg and hi and before I forget, when is your last paper over? My aunt is depositing her corgi at my house while she's on holiday, and he'll be here from the 3rd to the 10th of December! So if/when you're free, come over and play with him? ♥ I know elvaron and reisha will be coming over soon as our papers are out of the way, so if you're free then, you're always welcome to come, too! ♥ I promise to try not to force YGO on all of you (although I do not have to force it on reisha, seeing as how she reads it already... SEE IT'S A GOOD THING! JOIN US? XD)!

Yes, Eye of Judgment is that game that's played with the camera at the board! I'm so happy you've heard about it already! I knew gaygamer was awesome from what you told me about it, but wow it IS awesome.


XDDD The question killed me as it was! XD Both legally and fandomically speaking! XDXDXD

1st-Dec-2007 04:49 pm (UTC) - I have to show you the most HORRIFIC YGO-appropriate spam EVER
XDXDXD TRUE story NO LIES! Seriously, it broke my brain. Well, what was left of it!

Also, as said, the most HORRIFIC YGO-appropriate spam EVER. The original if you need it for nefarious purposes.
5th-Dec-2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
... I totally need to say that you recommend the best fics. ;______; I had so much fun reading that time Dean turned into a cat, and the flushing toilet!ghost one. XDDD

I'm glad I won't be having my brainwaves taken tomorrow, because they would all be BLEH for results, but YAY for high. XD

How've exams been for you? Are they over yet?
Exams feel like they're taking forever to END THEMSELVES. ;) Not over yet - I'll be done this Friday. ;)

AHAHAHAHA FOR YAY FOR HIGH. I am so glad you enjoyed the stories! I found them amusing, someone else might one day do so too!

OH I MUST REC ANOTHER: Journey to the West Supernatural fic, Sam/Dean. AMAZING.
