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.

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

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 29 - Does Dream Width have ads? I don't know because I block all ads anyway. Does the real blog http://mikaristar.dreamwidth.org look like this screen shot? http://mikaristar.deviantart.com/art/Dream-Width-276315520

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!
