mikaristar: Xellos, mace, Slayers (Sadist)
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 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

June 16

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.

mikaristar: Peachy, Pikachu, Pokemon (Rules)
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".

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 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.

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.

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

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. ^_^

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;;
