Happy holidays, me hearties!

...Damn, I need to update this freaking thing more often.

Leave a request and I'll write something for you here! :3 I need to get back into that. :/ I'll try to have something meaty around the New Year's!
I bought a laser pointer today because it was cheap and my brain blipped on the cute kitten picture on the back. Seminars my ass. So I bring it home and within 30 seconds I've got my one dollar's worth of entertainment in playing with the cat. Flick, flick, flick! I'm sitting here giggling like an idiot and the cat is just quietly spazzing in hunter mode going, "Intruder, intruder, intruder! Where'd it go?"

Seriously, she's sniffing around for it.

On the blank wall.

My cat's name is Box Cat. Seriously. She was a tiny kitten thing about... three years ago. She was a guilt gift to my parents who took her in because her current owner was a drugged out douche who, for some reason, was a friend of the family. The kitten was being sequestered in a tiny box so the pet ferret could roam about. -_o;; Mom and Dad were moving at the time, however, and it would have been a very stressful time for the kitten. Mom asked me (...okay, I was cuddling the kitten and squeeing and making 'gimme' eyes at her) to watch the kitten until they were done moving. I called her Box Cat so I wouldn't get attached.

I think we know the punchline.

This is all over and I forget who I copy/pasted from. XD;;

tl;dr - Post a wish list, look for a wish list, grant a wish if ya can.

STEP ONE

Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!

Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO

Surf around your friends list (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part...

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes one person's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


THE LIST

1) Ganju/Hanatarou fics and art. Or douji where Hana doesn't look like a five-year old. :<

2) Books that read like slash fics. I know there's lots of gay-themed novels out there, but there's a difference.

3) A Hanatarou plushie. ... Don't judge me.

4) Car. Just. Fuck.

5) Hanatarou and Ganju showing up in the anime. Or a game. Or... anything.

6) Packs of apple cider mix.

7) A rec for a manga/anime series with magical girls and genderbender and... stuff. I have issues, I know.

8) Outlaw Star fics or art. Gene/Fred remains one of my first OTP.

9) RPG Maker VX. Although I could prolly just download it myself somewhere...

10) Gumption and patience and determination. I have some stuff I need to start. :

No, I don't know why I'm up.

I've got it in my stupid head to start an lj com again, kinda like Amity Slash, but... Less... erm... Amity Slash, if that makes any sense. It was fun, but kinda devolved into a clusterfuck towards the end.

So! To avoid that should my little OCD goldfish brain keep clinging to this idea... What sort of things do you guys enjoy in your current rps? Stuff like structure, organization, mod involvement? What about plots? How to thread together panfandom rps? Or failing all of that, can anybody rec panfandom rps they're already in that would make for good inspiration or examples of how it's done right?

Won't be online for a bit longer as I am going to pound my head onto my computer until words come out. Cripes.

Also, why is it so hard to think of a bankai for Hanatarou of all people?
Translation of the spoiler for the latest Bleach chapter, taken from here.


Chapter Begins as Yammi has captured Rukia . Chad and Renji are already down on their knees .

Yammi and Rukia have an exchange and he's about to pound her into the ground .

When Ichigo saves her and says he's going to hurry up and finish this trivial battle .

Rukia: Why are his eyes...not of someone who won in the battle above?

Rukia says something like: "That guy's rank...isn't the same as the rank of the guy you defeated."

The 3 go off and watch the fight from a distance. It doesn't appear they will be involved .

Ichigo says he's going to quickly defeat him . Then go to the real world and dons his mask .

Looks like Ichigo's mask has a horn. And Chapter Ends


Ahem.

WHAT THE HELL?!

I wrote this in reply to a post on a messageboard and I'm not sure of the replies I'll get there, but I think it's shiny, so I'll post it here. XD;; This was in response to a thread asking if Ganju were a shinigami and if his sword were a zanpakuto.

(Here's the original thread.)

And here's my long ass reply. )
Pfffffft. Hana, what the hell? Why won't you sit still in my head long enough for me to think of an appropriate zanpa spirit for you? I've got the little hyotan-kozo fella for the private rp, with the option for spiffy monk with straw hat and gourd hanging from his staff upgrade if Hana ever gets off his ass to master his shikai and zanpakuto properly.

But I have no idea what in the hell to use for the Checkmate rpg. Vine-based bird or turtle? Or something humanoid? No idea! Blargh. [headdesk]
Dear Bleach Animation Studios:

I've been loosely following the recent manga chapters and the recent anime episodes and realize that one is about to fall behind the other. In the past, this has resulted in anime-only filler arcs being shown instead of pulling the current manga story arc out of Kubo's ass. This has resulted in two major filler arcs so far, mostly referred to as the Bount arc and the New Captain arc, along with a few smaller two or three episode arcs that have also appeared. The anime is rapidly approaching the manga and soon it will be time for a new arc.

In light of this, I propose that rather than introducing a slew of new anime-only characters that will likely never appear again or even mentioned, that the upcoming arc(s) be constructed to reveal more of the existing backstory of certain characters, or to flesh out the current stories of certain characters. Mr Kubo Tite has developed this rather distressing habit of creating somewhat interesting secondary characters that either have ties to major characters or ties amongst themselves and never really following through with them. This is an opportunity to take care of that. In fact, here are two concepts for possible filler arcs that I believe would be quite entertaining:

The Secret Forces are on a mission to discover just who's capturing Hollows alive and for what purpose, fearing that Aizen may be up to experiments yet again. What they discover is instead along distant ocean shores where ships are carrying an incredibly dangerous cargo and an underground gambling ring is forcing innocents and criminals alike to battle Hollows in a desperate bid for survival. A seal is placed upon all combatants to lock away any spiritual powers or zanpakuto, forcing them to rely on brute strength and fierce cunning to stay alive while spectators place bets on who will perish and who will emerge victorious. A covert group is sent to infiltrate both the betting ring and the fighters to discover who is behind it all and what goal they could possibly have. Along the way, the shinigami will have to learn who they can trust in an increasingly lethal game and just how desperate some people become to survive in the Rukongai.

BONUSES
: NINJAS, PIRATES, small scale epic battles, Hollows that can actually be scary, shirtless men, more NINJAS, and Ganju showing the shinigami how to brawl RUKONGAI style.
DRAWBACKS: None. There are NINJAS and PIRATES, so stfu.

The second basic concept:

The Captains and Vice-Captains are scattered across Heuco Mundo and the false Karakura Town in a fierce battle against Aizen. With her strongest fighters absent, the greatest threat to the Seireitei now might come from those the shinigami were sworn to protect. Tensions in the Rukongai run hot and vicious in the wake of Aizen's betrayal and even defeated, Kariya's words continue to poison and twist the ears and sympathies of many Rukongai citizens. With the strongest of the shinigami absent, who will protect the people of the Soul Society from the Hollows and Aizen's machinations? And who will protect them from themselves? An army starts to amass on either side of the Seiretei's walls, split between those in the Rukongai who wish to overthrow the Court Guards, and those within the Seireitei who wish to extend the control of those same Guards far past Yamamoto's original intent. It's a race against time for a small band with loyalties to both sides to fight and keep the peace and protect Seireitei and Rukongai alike from the threat that is emerging from the sleeping Karakura Town that could consume them all.

BONUSES
: Secondary characters can shine, reveal more of what actually happens in the Rukongai and the social structure, logical followup to the mess that was the Bount arc, room for backstories, and more Ganju showing the shinigami how to brawl RUKONGAI style.
DRAWBACKS: Captains and Vice-Captains missing is sort of a big deal and Kubo might actually have something planned for that.

Both of these proposals should be good for at least ten episodes and could possibly be extended to twenty or more, depending on the number of battles that can be crammed in. I wish to note, however, that extending episodes with the method used in the Bount Arc, for example with long, monotonous dialog and episode long flashbacks, may only serve to alienate your audience and there's nothing wrong with keeping it short and simple if you can't flesh it out with plot and proper action.

In addition, there are numerous unresolved plot lines or minor plot 'threads' that could be expanded to fill entire one or two part episodes, such as Renji's flashback episode to his and Rukia's childhood in the Rukongai. It would be highly recommended to touch upon these with close feedback from Mr Kubo Tite, as this could afford him the oppurtunity to delve further into backstories that he may or may not have an oppurtunity to address in the manga in the near future. These are listed in no particular order:

  • Kenpachi and the first Yachiro and why that name was bestowed with such reverance upon the second.
  • The Shiba clan. Specifically, what lead to the fall of the family from full noble status, Byakuya Kuchiki's past interactions with Kaien Shiba, Kukaku's use of a powerful kido spell, the origin of Kukaku's connection to former shinigami Yoruichi and Urahara, the form of kido or 'spells' that Kukaku and Ganju both use, why Ukitake didn't tell Kukaku and Ganju the truth himself and instead let the live however many decades hating the shinigami and believing Kaien as murdered in cold blood, and a possible fourth Shiba (There's a pattern to the names and each roughly translates as: Kaien Shiba - "Swallow of the Ocean," Kukaku Shiba - "Crane of the Sky," and Ganju Shiba - "Eagle of the Rock." Both Kaien and Ganju's names match their elemental ability, Kaien having a water-based zanpakuto and Ganju using some form of earth-based kido/spell. A bird of fire is still missing and no, Kaien's wife doesn't fit the pattern. More name information can be found here).
  • Spirit ribbons. Just... spirit ribbons. Oh, and the Gateway to Hell while we're at it. Listed mostly because while Kubo still might toss it back in when the current arc wraps up, it's been 200+ chapters.
  • The first shinigami that gave their powers to a human. If they made a law against it, either it had to have happened or something close enough to make them think, "Okay, um, yeah, maybe we should make this illegal guys?"
In conclusion, with the anime rapidly closing in on the current manga chapters, now's a good time to start thinking about this sort of stuff, although at this point in time the upcoming filler is probably already in post-production stage. Best of wishes, however, and please try to avoid the mistake in the Bount arc mentioned above.

PS: Yes, I am a Ganju fangirl as well as of the whole messed up family.

Hey! So, anyone on my flist interested in Bleach? Just curious, is all. XD;;
Okay, FC is not dead, just generally feeling like room-temperature shit. Cats knocked out my modem's plug last time I was online and it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out what the fuck was going on. I've been about passed out sleeping the rest of the time. :/

A couple weeks ago, almost a month, I had two... episodes? thingies? vision-go-bye-byes. Doctor said it was mostly harmless and family history backed up my own personal theory (that doc confirmed) that they were just migraine auras. Meaning, I got a couple of the symptoms of big badass migraines, but without the ballbusting headache part. What I got were gray fuzzy spots gnawing away at my peripheral vision until I could barely see anything that wasn't directly in front of me followed by "Wee, where's the merry go round?" type nausea every time I turned my head.

Doc put me on asprin and something called propo-whatsit. Eh, it's on the bottle. But it's supposed to loosen up blood vessels and such so nothing constricts to the point of giving me those lovely flashing spots or nasty tunnel vision. So far, so good. It took about a week after actually getting the medicine for me to start taking it, but I've been taking regularly for about a week now. No episodes or any of great grandmother's blind spots, but it's left me feeling very, very tired. I mean, I have been sleeping like a freaking rock for the past few nights upwards of 10+ hours, averaging damned close to 12 or 13. That's not good. Will be checking with doctor, of course. Even for me, sleeping that damned long and being that damned tired so long isn't normal.

Also, some good friends got me drunk for the first time last Saturday. Apparently, I am a very polite drunk. And I can't blame the Smirnoffs for the bad karaoke; I do that sober. XD;;

Matters of Etiquette
(a vocabulary list for young ladies)


It is a matter of vital importance and dignity for a young lady to remember and practice a proper vocabulary. Such a vocabulary assures her of a secure place in society and helps to educate others of her impeccable manners and mores. A young lady must always know her proper place; her choice of words can assure her peers and compatriots that she is aware of this role and is happy fulfilling it. So, in the continued interest of civilization, a sample vocabulary list is presented here for the proper young ladies of the twenty-first century, as compared to an identical list for young gentlemen.


A promiscuous young lady is called a slut.
(or alternatively: harlot, scarlet lady, whore, strumpet, loose)
A promiscuous young gentleman is called a big man on campus.

A young lady gets laid.
(or alternatively: gets her cherry popped.)
A young gentleman scores.

A young lady is daddy's little girl.
A young gentleman is daddy's little man.

A young lady who roughhouses is a tomboy.
(or alternatively: dyke.)
A young gentleman who roughhouses is one of the guys.

A young lady who speaks her mind is domineering.
(or alternatively: a bitch.)
A young gentleman who speaks his mind is assertive.

A young lady who asserts her authority is henpecking.
A young gentleman who asserts his authority is leading.

A young lady who emotes in public is hysterical.
A young gentleman who emotes in public is honest with his feelings.

A young lady who speaks loudly is shrill.
A young gentleman who speaks loudly is yelling.

A young lady who is expecting is knocked up.
A young gentleman who is expecting is a father to be.

A young lady screws her way to the top.
A young gentlemen climbs the corporate ladder.

A young lady is a member of mankind.
A young gentlemen is a member of the human race.

In conclusion, the proper young lady can, with proper vocabulary, proudly announce both her role and her satisfaction in fulfilling that role with a few choice words. Remember, it is vital for appearances and the continued betterment of mankind that a young lady both know her place and allow others to know it. Without such important knowledge, her otherwise understanding peers might assume of her such rude cultural violations as independence, confidence, and strength.
