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.

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;;

January 3 - Yay for days off! I have today and tomorrow this week. I'll write fics and play games. ^_^ I'm slowly watching Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds again, I'm on episode 61. I stopped watching Inuyasha: Final Act on episode 4 because I couldn't find the dub of 5. I'll get back to that. I'm still playing Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds Tag Force 4 (PSP) I have tons of event duels left to unlock.

January 4 - I copied and pasted this from the Amassment resolution meme. http://amassment.livejournal.com/150576.html

With every passing year my "Resolutions" turn into more of a "To Do List" but I'm getting better at doing everything on the list so that's still good. XD Most of my plans are fandom related, but I do have some shrine related things I want to do when I get the fics done...

- Finish writing my Slayers fanfic "To Live Another Day" (expected to be over 50 chapters)

- Outline the plot and then write "Loyalty" (Pokemon fanfic) (expected to be about 10 chapters)

- Practice writing in different ways... Explanation: The plot outline of "Don't Give Me Diamonds" (Pokemon) developed little by little staying a few chapters ahead of the writing. The outline of "To Live Another Day" was done before the writing started although not in detail and it had changed a lot, although it had already reach the (possibly) final version. For "Loyalty" (Pokemon) I plan to have a full outline first. For "Reintegration" (Final Fantasy VII) I had a plan in my head, though not a written outline. For "Wrong Place, Wrong Time" (Summon Night) I had no plan what so ever and made it up as I went along, I didn't even have an ending in mind, though people think it turned out well. Since "To Live Another Day" (Slayers) and the upcoming "Loyalty" (Pokemon) are both so reliant on a solid preplanned outline, I want the one to come after that to be free writing (I have a concept and an ending in mind already, but nothing in the middle). I want to be able to follow a plan and be able to improvise. That story will be related to Valkyria Chronicles II.

- Summary: Work on these fanfics... one at the time so I can fully focus on them:
- "To Live Another Day" (Slayers)
- "Loyalty" (Pokemon)
- Untitled (Valkyria Chrinicles II)

- Finally, when I get all of that done, I intend to do something web-design related... A mini-shrine to a somewhat unusual subject and possibly invite others to shrine subjects of similar themes, as there are very few such shrines out there... I might move this up on the list to right after finishing "To Live Another Day" (Slayers)... probably... I know it's not too specific, but I would rather not spoil it (that and though I have the theme I don't have a final choice on the subject yet so I couldn't tell you anyway) ^^;;

- This one is less of a to do thing and more of a "constant" thing. Give my collective http://piratesboard.net/mikari/ a new layout every now and then, like say once a month.

- Make some more graphics for Surreptitious http://piratesboard.net/mikari/summon/night.php I mean really 15+ information sections and only 2 media sections? I need to add more shinies to make it more "me" XD Although I'll probably add some more information too.

- Add some more info to Golden Phoenix (possibly) I would have to rewatch the series or find some good episode summaries to refresh my memory... I'll probably rewatch since the information I need is mostly in the first part of the series and that's just 26 episodes, plus I can take screen shots. This will take a while, as I plan to do a character study with the hero monomyth inspired by Snow's awesome Aya Brea site Liberation http://piratesboard.net/ss/aya/ and I know little about it, so I'll have to study up. I also need to revise the similarities page and read (listen to my computer reading) the whole site once I'm done with the ambitious project to make sure it all fits in nicely.

Is a year even enough? O.o;; Maybe I should make this my resolution list for the next decade. XD lol, just kidding, it shouldn't take more than a year or two.

December 30 - Happy Birthday Hikou!

December 31 - I had fun yesterday. ^_^ I slept in late, had a nice take out lunch, played around on online forums and comm while listening to a bible chapter (not getting confused). Watched anime, played video games, wrote fanfiction, drew fanart and had a good day at work. The system was down, the flight was oversold, it was deliciously chaotic! (Did I just say deliciously chaotic? Oh yeah, I would definitely be a monster in the Slayers world. XD) The most amazing part was that I actually did all of that, giving a good amount of time to each activity without feeling rushed or overloaded. Was it that yesterday had more than 24 hours? Technically it was half of yesterday and half of today, but my days start in the afternoon so it balances into a single day so to speak.

As for today, the day is not so great because it's new years and I have to work, which is not a problem as I'm sure I'll be endlessly amused watching my coworker pathetically cry like idiots (oh yeah definitely of the monster race in the Slayers-verse XD). But you know parents get idiotic because boo-hoo I'm going to be a whole fifteen minutes away. Phff! Still, I'm going to leave their idiotic overly emotional junk behind and have a blast handling another chaotic flight. :D My coworkers are starting to think I'm crazy because I enjoy chaos so much. ^_^

January 1 - Happy New Year Everyone! Today was more chaotic than yesterday because it had all the same things plus a broken baggage conveyor belt. I sent out a whole bunch of texts and it looks like most if not all of them got to where they were going. Snow, Cherri, do you have the same numbers with the new phones, email me. I was surprised that a few people still have the same numbers, it's been forever since the last time I messaged them.

I'm slowly making progress through my Slayers fanfic novel. After that it's that Pokemon story "Loyalty" which will be maybe about 25k-30k words? I don't know yet, I haven't even done the outline yet and lately I've been using lists of events to make chaptered stories esier to keep up with in the writing process and to make sure I don't forget any important details. I'll do all that after I'm done with "To Live Another Day" I still have plenty of events in my outline for that one. After that I would like to write something Valkyria Chronicles II related, possibly a short reader insert, but in first person instead of second so I can post it at Fanfiction net too. After that I have an idea for something web-design related... talk about having a ton of busy plans and they're all quite time consuming so it'll be a while. As for my resolutions... I have only a to do list really and I just detailed it. XD Overall, I had a great year! Some of the most notable events were my new job and learning a lot about writing thanks to practicing with long fanfiction.

January 2 - Happy Birthday Matt!
