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

Fate Extra

Jun. 5th, 2012 02:06 am
mikaristar: Peachy, Pikachu, Pokemon (Cheers)
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.

Fate Extra

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 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!

Mar 18 - I've been so busy working on my Slayers fanfic that I haven't even finished Jeanne D'Arc. Last month I was going through all the stages in case I missed something and for training. I think they're ready, though I want to finish going around the map. I'll do that as soon as I'm done with my fics, since that's what's calling me the most right now. XD I still have Wild Arms XF to play.

Mar 19 - I feel accomplished. XD I learned how to properly use php email forms that don't depend on an email program from the computer or on an email form service. It's all done by the server side includes. It feels like I'm Snow's classmate because I'm learning stuff too.

Mar 20 - I really need to organize my notes page on Fantasy Bit. It's getting so long I might make it in it's own page along with the mini games. That would make things organized. I'll work on that later, after I'm done with the Slayers fanfic. I also want to redo one of the skins for that site.

Mar 21 - Yesterday I watched Dragon Ball Z. I had watched Kai before but it only goes to the Cell saga. I'm watching the rest of the episodes from Z. I've watched this series many times already, but it's always fun. I just watched the fight between Trunks and Goten. Chibi Trunks and Goten are adorable! They're disguised as Mighty Mask now.

Mar 22 - The "weekend" went by fast, but it was very productive. ^_^

Mar 7 - Took my lab tests to the doc... I am miraculously healthy! :o My blood level was indeed a bit low, but it was minimal, I got some vitamins to fix it and everything else is good. I thought I would be worse off than that, given how I don't eat healthy, but I'm blessed with good health, I can only call it a miracle and be thankful. XD

Mar 8 - Today is women's day, I didn't remember until I got a happy women's day text. Then the Google title banner made sense. XD So yeah, cheers to all the girls reading this. :)

Mar 13 - I decided that I'm going to merge the two Slayers stories after all so I'll put up the plot lines I had planned for the sequel as part of the current story. I will also post another story which will be a collection of one shots where I'll take requests. My upcoming Pokemon story will be opened as a round robin so that will be fun. It was supposed to be a surprise, but yeah... I couldn't resist. Most of the first chapter is actually written, I just need to revise it. At some point in the future I'll also do a final revision of Diamonds and insert that little flash back scene with Comet I had been meaning to put somewhere. Back to the topic of Slayers fanfiction I need to rearrange the chapters of the story to insert certain plot lines in the middle because I don't want to put them after the big boss fight as they would seem anti-climatic by comparison, I'm going over everything to ensure a smooth transition. So yeah... the crazy humor saga with brass rackets will be the last "season" of the story before the dramatic finale! I'm still working on those revisions so it'll be a while, but I'll get there. I also need to read up the Epic Hero info for my other web-design plans. 2012 is being productive!

Mar 14 - That job application that I change my mind about every single day... I got a reply. I don't know how to feel about it. I guess that's because I don't have the slightest idea what it's really like. I fear being burned out with work if I pass and take it, but at the same time it's a great opportunity... just not now. I'm good now, I'll need this eventually, but not this year. Yet leaving it for later could mean forever losing it. I should have just waited to apply when I was sure, but alas I did it on a whim and too many people are more than willing to help me. I don't know if I should say life is handing me a treasure on a silver platter or ruin in the same way. I don't know if I would like it (if I pass and that's a big if) or if I can even get to the interview (I need to get there on an airplane so yeah it's that far). Meh... I just don't know, it's where the money and independence is, but I'm so comfy being a lazy brat at my parents' house I'm not even sure I want it.

Finished watching all 51 episodes of Zenki in English. It looks like the OVA Zenki Gaiden wasn't dubbed. It's just one episode so I survived watching it subbed. There are no seeds in it, he style is a more serious exorcism kind of story. It was good, except for he unnecessary bath-service (though I wouldn't complain if it had been grown up Zenki instead of Chiaki and the girls.) I missed the humor from the series, but I liked that it wasn't all about the evil seeds this time. Chiaki looks older. She says she's 17, was she 15 in the series? I don't remember if they ever said it. She didn't do her poses for spell-casting and she had her bracelet, didn't that break? Though its silhouette did appear at the end so maybe another one was formed. Zenki is also quieter and sneakier in this. He actually sneak around and quietly follows Chiaki, hiding in the shadows rather than being stuffed into her luggage like in the series. In short, Zenki got cooler. The fight scene was much better too and had more blood effects.

Chiaki's outfit is slightly different, the skirt seems inconvenient, like she should have kept the old one, but the top looks better. Really only Zelas (from Slayers) could go to battle in a skirt like that and show only exactly what she wants to, but that's just because the dress is also made of her energy). Going back to Chiaki, the sleeves are still huge, but she has to keep her paper charms somewhere I guess. The story was short and predictable, but it was still good seeing this more serious side to Zenki and Chiaki and catching a glimpse at their future career as exorcists after the whole box of seeds thing was solved. Good to see Zenki wasn't sealed after all, though it looks like Goki doesn't follow Chiaki around as much, but he has his human alternate life to live, while Zenki is completely a guardian spirit. (I think he's an oni in the Japanese version though.) None the less Chiaki is able to transform zenki to his ultimate form without doing the star sign and without assistance from Goki. It is said that she would surpass Ozzuno... Lupapa wasn't there, I'm guessing he/she/it stayed home. There's no golden axe either... but Zenki's got new powers. I supposed that to avoid time paradoxes the dragon had to return to its slumber eventually, it can time travel so as long as it eventually goes back it's okay.

I finally ge to role play Eonix at Regnoran http://www.regnoran.proboards.com She's a loud mouth, explosive wielding, obsessive brat with as much regard for danger as a kamikaze. She's got Fuzen's temper, but she actually has a brain and that's an dangerous combination. Thank Kee she's only a medium Zarkavian, though she is very close to large, if she had been a real large... Just imagine a female Fuzen with the ability to think stomping around, that would be dangerous.

I went through my old files and did a clean up. I have a ton of old stuff to post at Deviant Art. O.o;;

----- News -----

January 24 - My scanner died of old age. It makes me sad. It still turns out and tries to scan, but the image is stretched. ;_;

January 25 - My scanner revived! It's still agonizing, but alive. The poor dear is like 12 years old. I just beat Fubuki on Disgaea 2. I also trained more mages. I have them on level forty something and they're super strong. High damage multiple target long rage attacks that don't miss? Yes! I have four mage characters blue mage (leaned star magic), star mage (leaned healing magic), star skull and red skull. The others are Adell, Rozalin and a warrior boy. I have Yukimaru for backup, but those are my main 7.
