I'm cleaning things up a bit... left Virtuadopt because I never got into it anyway. Left Start io (or oi?) because I had no use for it. I'm also abandoning Dream Width because I also have no use for it. There are many site that have content plus a blog, so a blog centric site seems pretty insignificant when a blog is a mere side feature these days. I'll be keeping Live Journal because of cooms and to comment on people's blogs and while I'm at it, I'll still post as usual there... like I do in every other site's blog feature. But really, I'm not in any Dream Width comms and everyone has an LJ or both a DW and an LJ so I won't be losing contact with anyone. That's it... Goodbye Dream Width, can't say I'll miss you.

For links to all the sites I'm still active at go here:

July 13 - Some bigshot will be here next week so we have to act all lame and uncool (aka professional). Everything will be done by the book and it's going to suck. It means that until the big shot is gone I can't text, watch anime or go online while on the job. It also means that we'll have to postpone the birthday we had planned to celebrate for one of our coworkers that week since the office will go from an amusing place to boredomville for the week. I'm glad I have my days off in the middle of the week, so I'll only actually have to put up with the act for 3 days. That aside, when doom week is over, you guys who live in the US can text me on the job again, well you can text me anyway, except I won't be able to reply during those 3 days. I still have the 200 text a month plan and there are plenty left that I can use before the month ends, as I can't keep them for next month anyway.

July 14 - Since I don't know how much time I'll have during doom week I decided to post the B-day gifts early. I also have a 12 hour shift on the 29th... 4 for the flight and 8 filling in at the Jet Center... which means I'll probably finish playing Gurumin then. :D I love that airplane gas station, easiest job in the world. Write down people's IDs as the go in and out every few hours, answer the phone and radio even less often and play games most of the time! I wonder what movie they'll play that night. Last time it was Up and before that Incredibles. I'll also probably catch an episode of Nikita if it's airing that day. ^_^

July 15 - Happy birthday Alicia! Last night I saw someone at work playing Bust a Move and decided to be a copycat and get it for Xellos. I must get an app store card at some point in the future. Poor Xellos is broke. At least Reno has a little money for the PSN. Gotta make a note of getting that card... later since I'm lazy when it comes to going to the mall... or anywhere really. At least I have the sample Bust a Move games. XD I hung out playing for like half an hour after they said we could leave. ^^;;

July 16 - Doom week was pushed back and it'll be from today until Saturday... Yay for being off today and tomorrow! Though I thought I would get 1 doom day, then my days off, then 2, now it's all 3 in a row. At least I'll know what to expect from those who work today. The Amassment forum is up and running! The first 10 members get free coins! http://board.amassment.org/index.php I listened to the 11th Slayers novel, Crimson Obsession while posting. It's actiony. :D

July 17 - Yesterday Inspector Doom didn't show... Don't know if he'll be there today. I'll text someone and ask later. I hope he's not there tomorrow when I go back to work.

July 21 - Happy Birthday Neptune Butterfly!

June 27 - I was in the Amassment chat yesterday. Shrine timelines, upcoming shrines, internet memories, website reviews and recommendations, Amassment plans, celebrities, computers, time zones, temperature, transportation and randomness. XD It was fun. While I was there I made an orange Ashram layout for Fantasy Bit far too early for October. ^^;;

June 29 - There was a bit of a blackout today. I played Gurumon for a while. It doesn't have much of a story, but it's so cute! It's like Atomic Betty + Summon Night + Ratchet & Clank. So cute! I just got through the third forest stage and I'm heading over to the lake towards the east.

June 30 - Afternoon... I'm on episode 21 of Lost Universe. ^^ Also played a little more of Gurumin today. Such a cute game. Parin's fighting style reminds me of Ark from Terranigma. :D I had not been keeping up with Korra since episode 1 so I'm watching more episodes now, currently watching 2. The probending arena looks like a Pokemon stadium! XD It's even white and red! XD Episode 3... yes Korra, mornings are evil! The Fire ferret mascot is sooo cute!!! Later... Watching episode 4... I wonder if the girl on the bike is related to Zuko or Toph. Looks like she's not... lol Aang's middle granddaughter is hilarious. She reminds me of Tai Lee. XD I want to see Tai Lee's descendants, they would be so fun! Night... Lol Korra! Watching episode 5, it's like fanservice city bring on the shipping wars. XD I'm not taking sides, at least not yet. Why does Korra call the wolf bat water leader pretty boy... He's not pretty. Lol at the announcer and not pretty boy on episode 6. Episode 7 lol at the new cabbage man! XD

July 1 - Watching the finale of Korra season 1. I was amused when the guy with Zuku's voice came up. It's pretty clear he's Zuko's descendant, I mean really, he's even named Iroh. lol at the wise hobo too. XD I like the humor in this series. I don't like the old tech. I love tech, but I don't like the in-between of modern and near-medieval. One or the other, magic or tech, hi tech no magic, no low tech, not a fan of prototypes. I liked the mechas, but not the old looking airplanes. I guess it's because I don't like too many similarities with Earth unless it's modern Earth, but Earth in itself is boring and so is the past. I prefer high fantasy, which this is given the fauna, but I don't like too many references to historical real Earth. Modern Earth can be fun and so can future Earth, but those historical-like portrayals give it a hint of anti-climax. None the less, the fantasy elements and the fast action balances it out.

July 2 - It seems that I always have more plans than the day has hours. XD There are many things I want to write and many pixels I want to make...

June 25 - Still listening to Gone with the Wind. In its favor I can say it has many events. Unlike some novels that stretch out a few events, this one cannot be summarized properly in a few words, because a lot of stuff does happen. When I see stories where few things happen in comparison to the amount of words it takes for those things to happen I don't like it, they're too slow. Couldn't the author think of more events? More twists and turns? This one is amusing in that. Although I must say, that though Butler did amuse me in the beginning I ended up not liking him later and...

I'm going to talk spoilers now. It's not even his treatment of Scarlet or his dealings with Belle. I don't like him because he's so pathetically attached to Bonnie. It was sweet when he was with Wade because he showed affection for the child without going overboard. Bonnie is his own child, yes, but his change was too abrupt and it ruined his character. There's just something terribly unattractive about a man obsessed with his kid to the point of loving it more than his lover and leaving all adventures behind. I truly dislike fluffy family men and the charm of his "improper" character died... and he turned boring even if he had been ever so amusing a character before. Now he feels hypocritical, sheltering Bonnie and dealing with Belle. Then being with Belle and playing the victim for Scarlet at the end. She's far more loyal than him that's for sure. It was balanced before when he was brutally honest, it fit him much better. Scarlet is still a brat, even if she has become braver and stronger I'm glad she didn't change after all. I like bratty characters, they're ever so amusing in stories!

Later... finished listening... that "my dear" quote at the end... I've heard it before and didn't know where it was from... now I do. But for all it's eventfulness the ending was left hanging and inconclusive, which is a disappointment. I do like Scarlet's procrastination, but the inconclusiveness sucks. Oh well, I'd cheer for her because she's an amusing character.

June 26 - Afternoon... Played a bit of Gurumin last night. The story is simple and not at all interesting, but the gameplay itself is super fun! It's an action RPG with game play somewhat similar to Ratchet & Clank and such types of 3D platforming games. Basically, a girl named Parin, armed with a legendary drill, must go around a magical world rescuing monsters. Pretty simple, but pretty fun. I only just got started and I'm in the forest stage.

Night... Played a bit more Hakuoki and unlocked the last ending I was missing. I got them all! The Chizuru end, all the Shinsengumi boys and Kazama. I'm still missing some gallery pics and definitions, but I'm not going to get them. I just wanted the endings. I think I'll take off Hakuoki from my mem-stick to make room for others. I also played a little bit of Zenonia this afternoon. It's so cute and it was cheap since it's from the mini section.

I finished Hakuoki while I should have been chatting with everyone at Amassment, but my stupid parents had an argument and dragged me into playing adviser. Again mother says she's leaving, I hope she goes through with it this time because dad and I, logical creatures with no patience for emo outbursts, are sick of her. I do wish she's see a counselor but she thinks it's only for clinically insane people and going would be like saying everything she stands for it's wrong. I know counseling isn't like that, though not from personal experience, I know people who have gone. then she can rant to someone who actually gets paid to listen to her stupidity.

I think Hakuoki made me feel better now, I'll log in and see if there's anyone still chatting even if I'm like an hour late, or more if my interpretation of time zones is incorrect.

A few minutes later... people are still chatting! yay! :D I'm glad I didn't miss it. Though drama is still happening in the background, I can ignore it.

June 19 - For those who were using my notes as a reference, I put all the files related to them in their own folder. They are not gone! They are here: http://piratesboard.net/mikari/fantasy/azure/notes.html I revamped the old Lina and Gourry layouts to make the pictures stay on the screen while the text scrolls. Instead the text fades away as it reached the top image. There is a new layout too. It features Miku from Vocaloids.

June 20 - Joined another art archive http://mikaristar.sheezyart.com Someone at Beloved Enemy http://z3.invisionfree.com/Beloved_Enemy/index.php?&act=site Neptune I think... mentioned The character of Gone with the Wind being like Xellos and Filia. I needed something to listen to while I uploaded fanworks to yet another archive, so I went through posting 75 stories at Your Fiction http://yourfanfiction.com/viewuser.php?uid=3118 and now I'm posting a bunch of fanarts at Sheezy Art, all while listening to the story. Though the characters are not exactly like them, I do see strong similarities. The only big difference is Scarlet being flirty and selfish, which Filia is the opposite, but they have similar tempers and interactions. Butler also has a lot of personality traits that are indeed quite similar to Xellos and everything I notice something about them it makes me laugh in amusement. I would so have liked to see them in a modern day setting as I don't like stories of the past, but the characters are fun, so they make up for the boring setting.

I like Butler's sincerity, kind of reminds me of myself, seeing the world for its usefulness, but I'm more like Scarlet in that it's usefulness goes as far as its entertainment. While I'm definitely not a flirt, all the opposite, I can be rather cold. I do appreciate Scarlet's simple self-centered nature as I identify with it. I can watch the world fall apart but if I am amused, it's all good. If I'm not amused, who cares about anything? I also share Scarlet's disregard for more people, lack of patience and general dislike for children and their responsibilities. Except I figured that out before getting married, while for her, she realized that freedom is better than marriage all too late, though she may recover still. I think I'm about half way through listening to this. I don't like the overly long setting descriptions that appear at times or the setting itself, but like I said, the fun characters make it amusing enough. Butler's overly-honest practicality is very amusing, though he's look much better in my imagination if he'd shave, because the narrative has reminded me of his mustache several times and I don't like mustaches or any sort of facial hair.

June 22 - I'm on Lost Universe episode 10. :) Gone with the Wind is turning boring. Scarlet is turning too responsible. I like adventurous carefree character that throw responsibilities to the wind and go off adventuring leaving the rest of the world to fend for itself! Oh well... I'll still finish listening to it.

June 23 - We had a super delay due to thunder storms and then when the airplane did arrive, it had a worn tire which the mechanic needed to take care of, so that added more to the delay. So instead of a round trip that takes 3 hour to process between receiving passengers, checking in the ones that are leaving, loading, clean up and boarding, it took 8 hours for the process, most of which were spent waiting for the airplane to arrive. I watched episode 11 of Lost Universe on my iPod at the office, then wrote a little for my X-Men: Evolution fanfic after I had to go from the office to the gate where the office wireless doesn't reach. Xellos (my iPod's name) even if you might be Lina's useful item number four, you're turning into my useful item number one!

Naturally, cranky passengers with, literally, red eyes were more abundant than ever before. I was very sleepy as the sun had come up and I'm using to going home hours before that. It was eight in the morning! I haven't been awake at eight in the morning for years! On the bright side, I did get some nice pictures. I think my favorites are the one with sunrise over the airplane parking lot between the airport building and the runway and the control tower.

While waiting for the tire process, a few flight attendants and airport employees were at the back stairs. We heard a bird and wee all like "someone's cell phone is ringing." We kept looking at each other because no one was answering their phone and realized that none of us had a bird ring tone for calls. Then after a few minutes of confusion and putting our ears to the cellphone, iPods and various hand-held electronics, we looked up. There on the tail of the airplane there was a bird singing more cheerfully that anyone should at that tired early hour. We laughed because none of us expected bird sounds to come from an actual bird. I posted a bunch of airport pics at Deviant art, go take a look! http://mikaristar.deviantart.com

Kain from Lost Universe looks like Comet! O.O Kain did exist long before I created Comet, but I didn't see him until recently so I can assure that Comet was in no way based on Kain. I wasn't even that much into the Slayers series when I wrote Don't Give Me Diamonds (Pokemon) and it was because I later watched Slayers and after writing Slayers: Alive that I decided to look up Lost Universe because it's by the same author. I'm still on episode 1, watching bits and pieces during breaks at work. It makes sense that Kain is somewhat similar to Lina as they are the protagonists of anime by the same author, but the comet thing is totally random. XD Just go to Google image and type Lost Universe Kain and you'll see what I mean.

June 18

Yesterday I filled in on the afternoon shift of the airplane gas station near the airport. I'm only there as a backup and still do my usual night flight shift. I do wish I had the gas station as my regular shift. It's so good to spend two thirds of the time watching videos and playing PSP only occasionally actually having to work. Then it's easy work anyway, write down IDs, give out contractor badges and keep records of them, answer the phone and radio and scan credit cards when someone needs to pay for fuel. Customers are few since the regular cargo flights are not that many and only so many people own aircrafts. I haven't seen any helicopters yet, though they do service them. I did see a very pretty small private jet yesterday and posted a picture of it at DA, along with a few other random pics. The passenger airline pics (night) are from the airport and the pics that are by the window (day) are from a different runway that's next to the gas station, but the runways are connected, though it's like 5 minutes in a car from the airport to the gas station.

I've been watching some more episode of Lost Universe. It reminds me of Outlaw Star with Kain and Gene as the redhead protagonist and Melphina and Canal as the living ship control, albeit Canal is so much better than Melphina.

I had a weird dream, but didn't have time to blog about it. I was in the Fate/Extra universe with Zelas as my "servant" except she claimed to be the master who fought battles because she didn't need help from her servant who was supposed to be me. I was in the elevator set to fight against Rin, who had Milgazia as her servant. Then this happened:

Zelas: "Milgzia..."

Rin: "So you know who he is... then you should know that a golden dragon elder will not be defeated."

Mikari: "My ser- I mean... Beast Master Zelas, eats golden dragons..."

Rin: "..."

Milgazia: "...she does hunt my kind for dragon cuisine occasionally..."

Rin: "..."

The elevator reaches the arena and the fight starts.

Zelas: *kills Rin* (Note that I don't hate rin, this is just how the dream went!)

Milgazia: "You were supposed to fight me!"

Zelas: "These fights are too easy, take me lace and struggle by this girl's side." *disappears*

Milgazia: "...I guess this means you're my new master..."

Later we come out of the elevator and find Rani with her servant Xellos.

Xellos: "It looks like you won, but Beast Master has abandoned you..."

Later when we go to see who we'll fight in the next round the name had been erased and instead someone wrote "that is a secret" but that in itself made it pretty obvious I was up against Rani and Xellos. Then I woke up. Lucky for Milgazia because I had considered dressing him up as Filia in desperate effort to trick the trickster and win. XD

There is yet another fanfic archive that I joined... O.o;; http://yourfanfiction.com/viewuser.php?uid=3118 I only recently joined so I haven't posted all my stories yet.

I finally downloaded Gurumin from the PSN, though I bought it some time ago. I also got a PSN mini that looked like Cloud pretending to be Link. It's called Zenonia. I haven't actually played them yet, but I'll get to it as soon as I do some stuff online. XD Whenever I get around to play them, as usual I'll blog about it.

June 10 - I'm fighting the assassin next. He's strong. I need more defense, but I'm so done grinding. In this game you only get a certain amount of chances to grind and after you're done that's it, if you want more levels you have to load an old save. That's what I don't like about it. There's an anti grind system that changes the exp to make grinding easier, but at times it also makes it harder because you get less exp the higher your level is. That aside it's a fun game, that and the introduction were the only things I didn't like. Otherwise I've been playing it a lot. I'll try that assassin fight again... Apparently there are different plots if you save Rin or Rani? I choose to save Rani, though Rin also survives. Makes me wonder if adding the girl character was a last minute decision as it doesn't seem like the narration was made specifically for her. Is there even a different version or is it just a generic narration for the guy and the girl?

June 11 - By now it's pretty obvious that they didn't revise the script much for the girl character. Archer "that was a dick move master" *rants about how one should eat the food a woman has cooked for them* Um... Archer... your master's a girl, how dense could you be? If you want her to be all lovey about a home cooked meal go cook for her yourself, stupid. lol at Rani stealing Xellos' quote http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo69/mikaristar/extra/fateextra2.png it's funnier that she also has purple hair and eyes. XD

June 12 - I had to use one of my elixirs to beat Rin because her Lancer had an instant kill. It's not like the "near-dead will die in next hit" ability of Julius' Assassin, I could just heal Archer after that. This was an "always dies" sort of ability... unless I nullified it, but I couldn't do that if I didn't know when he was going to do it. My strategy was to not fight. I didn't fight, I killed him. I went all out, turn 1 power boots, turns 2 and 3 attack, attack, attack, then the Lancer was dead. No real strategy, no exchange of attacks, just desperate kill mode, the RPG equivalent of button mashing. Now I need to fight Leo... but Julius' ghost is lurking around too.

June 13 - Just a little more training and I'll be ready to take on Leo. Just got Archer's matrix to E level and learned his story. His old philosophy sucked, loyalty over justice! At least he's not that stupid hero of justice anymore and has now become cool. I still like him best out of all the characters in this game. Lancer (Rin's) is cool too.

June 14 - I need one more level to feel ready to face Leo in Fate Extra. I got Archer's defense up to survive the Julius fight but now he's in need of agility and attack power. I want to get those stats up so I can do a fast kill on Leo before he has the chance to do much. It seems that in these last few fights, Rin and beyond, fighting is not actually an option, berserk kill mode is the only means of survival. No strategy, just sadism... works for me. There are quite a few Fate games, I'll have to check the PSN and see what they have for the PSP. I also have Gurumin already purchased that I need to download. Unfortunately I can't get Reno (PSP) to connect from work, though I know the password is fine because Xellos (iPod) connects without even having to be told to do so. Maybe Reno is simply old... he is a 3000... but he connects from home where my data is limited because after dealing with crappy internet I just have to get the expensive one... Oh well, I'll just have to pay the fee if I go over this month. I did last month but instead of asking for a fee they passed the data to this month which is cheaper, but let's face it, I'll probably go over and end up paying the fee anyway, which I don't mind, I just want my data consumption to stabilize. It's not like I asked for "second chance" not to go over. Back to Fate Extra it's funny how in some parts it says "her" and the character actually sounds like a girl, such as her "enchantment" with Julius. Then in other parts they didn't modify the script such as Archer calling her a "d*ck" and admitting "that took balls to say".

June 5 - I'm on round 4 of Fate Extra. I played a lot today. So far I think Archer (the player's partner) is my fav character.

June 6 - There's a part in Fate Extra where you have to fight a vampire. I'm semi-stuck as I need more levels before I can beat her, but that's not what this blog is about. If you have your character check out the library this is found: http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo69/mikaristar/extra/fateextra1.png Yes, it's an actual photo of the screen. XD

June 8 - On episode 4 of Uta no Prince. It's okay, not super amusing, but it has nice art. I'm training to beat Julius on Fate Extra. Need more levels, especially if his servant is stronger than that vampire girl.

June 9 - Been watching Uta no Prince during break at work. Xellos (my iPod) takes really good screen shots. XD Hyuga is cool. It was amusing seeing him in a scene like the start of Mission Impossible 2. XD I think episode 5 has been the most amusing so far.

June 4 - 2 days ago I started watching Uta no Prince. It's a short series. It's subbed but it's noisy in the office so I would need subs anyway. I turn off the sound or keep it real low since there are no words to listen to anyway. Been watching it on Xellos. I've only seen 2 episodes so far. Yesterday it was my super long shift, but it was easy. Barely any airplanes came since it was a Sunday. There was a different guard this time and she was far quieter than the dude that was there before, good because I could focus on my game. I played a lot of Fate Extra. I wish I had taken the charger. I drained all of one battery and most of the other.

Then I decided to go online for a while to save some battery for later. Had some snacks, doodled, wrote a drabble and watched The Incredibles on the office TV. XD Then I played some more and then it was time to work on the night's flight so I closed up and left. For a second I thought I trapped myself in the office but managed to find a way out via the emergency exit, which I later remembered I was supposed to take anyway since I was supposed to close everything else. now I'm finally back to 2 days off, yay! Maybe I'll get 3 when the low season hits, we'll see. The new girl started at the office today, it looks like some people already knew her and she seems to get along well enough with everyone.

As for my play time with Fate Extra, I'm having fun so far. I thought the training days would be just for training, but I've had special events alongside the side quests every game day. Shinji is such a little cheater! For those who missed my last post, I'm playing as the girl with Archer as my partner. I'm on the last preparation day before the first official round. The intro was indeed pointless and long, but the game itself is fun. Don't let the intro gameplay discourage you, this is a fun game.

June 1 - Feeling better, my throat still bothers me a bit, but it's nothing big. My schedule finally changed when the return of the people who were temporarily out for various reasons including the army, a baby and a surgery. I'll have 2 days off again starting next week! This Sunday I have a 12 hour shift though, but it'll be easy because 8 of those hours will be playing receptionist at an airplane gas station and that was super easy when I did it before. I'll take Reno along and play Fate Extra the majority of the time. There's also wifi and a TV.

As for the other 4 hours, it's the usual commercial flight, so unless there are delay I should be done there in 2 or 3 hours rather than the whole 4 and I'll still get paid for the 4. Then I can rest on Monday. The whole receptionist thing is something I do when someone is absent, but I wouldn't mind doing that job all the time with how easy it is. As for the flight, someone new is coming to the office. We know her name but no one knows what she's like. As usual there's uneasiness because we wonder if she'll be pleasant to have around or not. The same thing happened with the last girl that joined and things turned out alright, let's hope it's the same now.

May 28 - Got Gurumin too, but I haven't saved it from the PSN yet. Fate Extra finished being saved. Haven't tried it out yet. Random thought: mice will one day be extinct... as in computer mice, really, touch screen will replace them and voice commands will replace that. One day laptops will look like iPads except they'll actually work like laptops unlike the iPads which do very little for their size.

May 29 - WTF?! That's not my data consumption! Did they pass last cycles data to this? I was going to buy the extra GB, I didn't want it passed on! I know Xellos connected by himself but I turn him off again and I'm sure he couldn't have drained this much data in such a short time.

May 30 - I'm not fond of water. I'm drinking it to try to keep myself decently hydrated, but it makes me feel like puking, although that is something I haven't done since I was little. None the less the nauseous feeling is still unpleasant even if I'm pretty sure I can withstand it. Drinking a lot of water also make me feel colder. D: Started playing Fate Extra, haven't even reached the first battle yet. So far it's like Persona 3, the main character run around school talking to people and doing assignments. I haven't seen the battle style yet. It's also way too early to pick a fav character.

May 31 - Fate Extra is... odd. It's like the Matrix in high school. The introduction is long and pointless. I played for like half an hour before the first battle. Then it turns out it was an impossible win, the boy got killed and then I got to start over with my actually character for the game. Why not play as my character from the start? I guess they wanted the emphasize the generic repetition of the virtual world but still... As for the actual battles, they are rock, paper, scissors style with attack, break and guard. I'm playing as the girl with Archer as my partner. It's fun so far, even with that unneeded intro. The game warns that there are dead ends... I reached one of those dead ends when I tried to make the generic guy from the intro leave the school and that game me a game over without warning. Needless to say, I'll be saving a lot.

June 1 - I hope they change my schedule soon... They better. "I fell in love with your smile and with your stupid malice" That song is so XelFi it's hilarious. To top it all up, the singer kind of sounds like Filia. XD

May 25 - I already named my PSP Reno and my cell Axel. So what should I call my iPod? Maybe Xellos... He's cute and all, black with a blue cover, but he doesn't respond to being stabbed. I have to touch him with my finger rather than my nails and that's uncomfortable. I'm still getting used to typing with my pinkie. I'll take him to work and play with him while I'm on break. I'm not even done setting him up yet, but that trip to the mall drained me so I'll do that later. Got some pretty earrings too, I really like earrings.

May 26 - Happy birthday Jess!

May 27 - Some annoying relatives were supposed to be coming over. They haven't arrived, I hope they don't come! My throat kind of hurts. :(

May 28 - Afternoon... My throat still hurts and I'm more light headed than yesterday... I think I'm going to call in sick today. I'm cold and can't think much... Night... Naturally, I started feeling better after night fell, the sun makes me sleepy and the dark makes me feel awake. Go figure, I mean, I sleep in a dark room even if it's day time. Anyway, I'm still light headed with cold medication and I'm constantly eating mints for my throat. I'm taking a sick day tonight and tomorrow I'm off so I should have time to recover. I heard some annoying relatives are coming over and want me to tag along to dinner. Maybe this cold is for the best, then I can say I can't go because I'm sick. Waiting for Fate/Extra to finish downloading from the PSN store then I'll go play.

May 14 - I had some really weird dreams last night... One was about sitting in front of a TV watching an odd movie. It was sort of a high school theme with some girl that looked a bit like Moni from TWTYH and some asian guy. I think they triggered the dream, except Aki didn't have his hair dyed and their backgrounds were different as they both went to school in America. There was something about some evil sorcerer they had to stop. Odd... The other dream followed the same theme, except I was also a student of the same school and for some reason I was there when the evil wizard was trying to sacrifice the students. The protagonists should have been just outside the gates at that time. I was trying to escape, though a statue carved into a tree tried to prevent it. I fought it and reached the school gates anyway. Sure enough, the protagonists were there, arriving for the finale of the movie, but then I woke up. It's like I had a dream about watching a movie, then I had a dream about dreaming about the movie I just dreamed about. Weird. XD

May 17 - Horrible weather for most of the afternoon. It just stopped storming and I finally got online. Stupid bad weather affecting the electricity and getting in my way.

May 18 - The weather isn't cooperating these days, but I'm making progress with my upcoming fansite. I should have it done in a week or so. Most of the information is all typed up. I just need to go over it for any corrections, organize everything and finish the visuals. I actually started with the writing just to see how much I could write about such a minor character. I think around 8,000 words of information makes for a decent fansite, yes? I'll have lots of pretty graphics too, I just need to make them. I'll be focusing on that so I'll probably only update Slayers: Alive until this is done, then I'll get back into updating Loyalty (Pokemon) and Slayers: Days. Once Loyalty is done I'll get started on the Golden Phoenix revamp since I'll only have Days to update then, so I'll have some extra time. I have the full outline for Loyalty done and the outline for several upcoming chapters of Days. I also have part of Loyalty chapter 14 written (it'll have 15 chapters in total) so rest assured, I fully intend to finish all these stories.

May 21 - I'm making progress with the upcoming site. Been listening to the ending chapters of Blessed Defiance. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6302466/1/Blessed_Defiance

May 23 - The upcoming fan site (those who follow me on Deviant Art already know what it's about) is coming along nicely. It's taking longer than I thought, but I'm getting somewhere! I've been focused on that for the last few days and have only been updating Slayers: Alive. As soon as this is done, I'll make a few small changes to Golden Phoenix and dub my collective revamped. I'll still be updating Slayers: Alive the whole time. I'll get back to Loyalty (Pokemon) and some more cursor and icons for TWTYH and Slayers. Next up is Slayers: Days, then my new Mario story.

May 10 - Just started chapter 4 of Hakuoki. Heisuke (is that the name of the one with the ponytail?) is a zombie thing, the others are still human. When I first saw Sanan I was like O.O he looks like Sakuro! But his personality is totally different, so not the hilarious and adorable Sakuro. I'm still constantly changing my mind about who I like best, Toshi, Saito or Sano...

May 11 - It sounds like a storm, which means the comp needs to be off in case the electricity goes unstable... I could play Hakuoki, but I have so much I want to write. D:

The storm has passed. I played Hakuoki and finished... Got the bad ending, everyone died. D: I'm playing again stalking different bishounen to get a better endings.

Meme! (same as in the last post)

Meme
1. Leave a comment to this post!
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each.

Snow gave me B http://snow-rayjah.livejournal.com/547598.html

1- Biggs from Final Fantasy VII - He along with Wedge and Jessie don't get a lot of screen time, but I think they were okay fillers. I wish there was more character development though...

2- Biggs Darklighter from Star Wars - he piloted an Xwing which I think is cool. He was Luke's friends and it sounded like they used to get into mischief together back in Tatooine. It would have been fun to see that.

3- Brock from Pokemon - A classic amusing character. I miss the original trio of Ash, Misty and Brock. He was funny, though it was basically the same joke every episode, it was somehow still amusing.

4- Bulbasaur from Pokemon - specifically Ash's Bulbasaur. I like the rebellious side of him how he refused to evolve even if everyone else was doing it. Unevolved pokemon are generally cuter with very few exceptions and Bulbasaur's evolution line is not one of them.

5- Bekko from Zombie Loan - I think he's cool, I like how he's so plotting and sneaky! :D

6- Beast Master Zelas Metallium from Slayers - She's surrounded by mystery as she only appears in the background in one of the Slayers openings (Next) and only her arm, shoulder and hair are seen. Her legs are seen in the last episode's special closing theme in Try. In the manga she has only one scene. So mysterious but so fun to theorize about. The fandom has filled in the gaps nicely and she's quite the interesting character by my interpretation. She's a monster lord and thus "evil" but I think she enjoys chaos more than destruction, pain more than death, she's a sadist and a really cool one.

7- Betty from Atomic Betty - A fun Star Wars / Star Trek style character. She's pretty amusing and has a cute chibi style. I find it funny how in the theme songs she claims not to like pink but wears pink in her Galactic Guardian uniform, albeit the uniforms have been seen available in a variety of colors.

May 8 - Since I finished my latest revamp and decided to take a break before going into the next one... I'm not sure what to do. I'm not exactly jumping on my PSP just because it's my day off. I play during my break at work every other day. I have fics to write, but after typing up a chapter or two a day I feel pretty drained, at least until the next day. I want to finish Loyalty before revamping my other sites and I'm also updating Days alongside it. I guess I'll get started on a new layout or something. I already visited every site I usually visit today anyway. Aha! I found a good fic to listen to! I don't like making layouts in silence so this is very good.

May 9 - I enjoyed listening Snow's fanfiction last night, left some reviews too. I put the finishing touches on the Zenki layout I was making today and put it up. It looks like Fanart Central is having technical difficulties... At least Deviant Art is still working. Due to the 5 pics per day limit on FC I'm still uploading old pics. It'll be a while before I start to post the new stuff there. I also just realized that thanks to Cherri I accomplished my monthly goal challenge on VDex! :D The ponyta is so cute! Thank you! I'm on chapter 3 of Hakuoki... no Saito! don't go! You're like one of my favs! Toshi is my other fave and Sano my other-other fav.

To Do List:
- Finish uploading fanworks to Fanart Central
- Loyalty (Pokemon chaptered fic)
- Pokemon one shot (title pending)
- Finish the Fantasy Bit notes page.
- Slayers: Days (writing challenge collection)
- Write hero's journey for Layla (rewatch Kaleido Star)
- Revamp Golden Phoenix Layla (Kaleido Star) fansite
- Write and post as of yet untitled Dekar-centric Estpolis fanfic
- Make a ton of pixels!

May 7 - Meme!

1. Leave a comment to this post!
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each.

Todd gave me the letter I http://yeerk.livejournal.com/56234.html

1- Iris from Lufia II... Technically her true name is Erim, but Iris she goes by Iris for most of the game. An interesting sneaky character that put up a convincing act. She helps the hero along his journey though she is technically supposed to be an antagonist. I like how the line is blurred for her.

2- Idura from Lufia II... Not a particularly interesting character, but he serves his purpose as a mid-boss.

3- Itachi from Naruto... Bishounen... he was cooler when he was evil, mostly because his "tragic" logic is so flawed that I see him more as an idiot than a martyr now.

4- Impa from Zelda... The mysterious warrior is pretty cool. There have been many different version of her over time, which ironically when from old to young, rather than the other way around.

5- Invader Zim... He's funny adorable, cute, love him!

6- Indiana Jones... Technically called Henry, but few remember that anyway. I like the original trilogy best. Fun action hero with a whip FTW.

7- IG-88 from Star Wars... I thought the design was funny, he's supposed to be a scary human hunter but he just doesn't look it. XD

May 8 - I finally finished revamping my Summon Night site yeaterday. I didn't even remember today was my day off. I guess I'm getting used to the 6 days slavery, it's so sad. At least I have tonight off. I'm planning to write fanfics tonight and stick with that until Loyalty is done. I'll still update Days while I'm at it. After that I'll revamp my Kaleido Star site while I continue with Days and I'll keep going with the revamps alongside Days until they're all done.

To Do List:
- Finish uploading fanworks to Fanart Central
- Loyalty (Pokemon chaptered fic)
- Pokemon one shot (title pending)
- Slayers: Days (writing challenge collection)
- Revamp Fantasy Bit
- Revamp RED Reno (Final Fantasy VII) fansite
- Write hero's journey for Layla (rewatch Kaleido Star)
- Revamp Golden Phoenix Layla (Kaleido Star) fansite
- Write and post as of yet untitled Dekar-centric Estpolis fanfic

May 1 - Left work an hour and a half early so I could get some sleep since I had training to attend at 8:30am. I did finish working with the flight, but was allowed to skip the after flight office stuff. At least I got the training out of the way... until next year. We all need to take a yearly security training about procedures, safety tips symbol interpretation. Last year it was just for the airport facilities and this year it was that plus the runway. Never mind that I have no need to get a runway driver permit since I don't drive anything out there, but I still had to get the basics.

May 2 - Airport low season please come soon!

May 3 - I don't like how you have to enter the capcha at Fanfiction Net even if you're logging in for the first time that day. It only used to pop up if you mistyped something and had to try again, or logged off and logged back in soon after. Last night I stayed in the airport so I could get my ID pic taken and scan my finger prints. The flight was gone around 2am and the office opened at 5am. I hung around the cafeteria and talked to coworkers that where also staying late for various reasons. We talked about games and anime. Not all of them are into it, but a few are, so we swapped recommendations and talked about the kinds of games we like. By 4am they were all gone though so I stayed in the cafeteria had a chocolate donut with Pepsi for a super early breakfast and played Hakuoki until 5am. I could have gone home, but I knew all that I would do would be to play Hakuoki anyway, so I figured I should save myself the trip and just stay at the airport and play there.

I like the variety of bishounen in Hakuoki, though I'm not so great at remembering their names. I'm glad games like this are being translated, but I really wish they would record the voice acting in English too. I don't think I've read anything whole in my life, school texts, videogames, manga, subtitles, fanfiction I always skipped words out of impatience and my dislike for reading. Now I listen to fanfics whole because I have my computer reach to them me, so I just put on my headphones and click around the Internet while I listen. I even have Zim (my computer) read RP posts to me and help me proofread my own stories. I tend to look at words quickly and come up with what they are, so proof reading without audio wasn't very effective as I would often auto-correct it in my head and miss things that I easily catch in the audio. So yeah, I'm skipping around and really there's way too much text, but I have the general idea of things. I still haven't picked a favorite bishounen yet. As a random note I returned to backloggery, same profile as before http://backloggery.com/mikari

April 24 - Freedom of Speech Fanfiction is alive again? No, not really, it's only back to agonizing mode. Although, the new owners have only recently acquired it so there's plenty to fix before it's in decent working conditions on the server side.

April 26 - I thought I would be late at work yesterday. I was ready to sit at the office playing Yugioh waiting for the tire change, as my job was done at the time, but I would still have to wait for the plane to leave. Then the captain decided to leave with the tire as it was since it passed inspection, though they would still need to change it when they landed. So I didn't leave as late as I thought.

I'm watching episode 1 of Legend of Korra. I'm not into older non-adventurer versions of heroes, but this seems to fit quite well. Korra is amusing. Lol at how one of the kids asked about Zuko's mom and was interrupted before Katara could reveal the secret. That's been one of the questions everyone's been wondering about since the end of the first series. Looking forward to the next episode whenever that is. I'm really going to miss Iroh and his jokes. Who is the old man in red with the weird magikarp mustache? I don't think he had a scar, so not Zuko.
