Maybe it's partly because it prominently features the crew and I know they'll all be back soon, but I have an instant love of this new opening. :
That is all.

Right, so…I’m gonna talk about Young Justice a little. :
This was a show I initially was only peripherally aware of; I heard it was a thing that was going to exist, and while at first I was like “… :D!” when I heard it was A) like an AU re-imagining with B) NO BART ALLEN, my interest waned. Cut to several months later, after it’s begun airing, and word of mouth is good! Now I am intrigued again. However, it was finding out Greg Weisman was involved (I only found this out like…a week or two ago, haha) that sold me on definitely watching it. It all goes back to Gargoyles being my first fandom, man. There’s a lot of great things I can say about Greg, but we’ll just leave it at: I know he has respect for intelligent/sophisticated storytelling, for strong female characters, and for the DC canon in general. So yeah. When I found out he was producing, I knew I was going to start watching.
I’ve been watching since…Monday, I think? (took me longer than intended, because I kept passing out early the last couple nights, so wouldn’t even make it through an entire episode sometimes, oops) Anyway, just last night I finished catching up, watching the last two episodes that’ve aired. For one, I wanted to be ready for the new one tonight. Now, though, I have some Thoughts that have been rattling around in my brain, and since, you know, I’ve been wanting to actually USE my LJ again, throwing them all up here seems like a good idea. Plus I’m hoping to get some discussion. I haven’t really looked at the general fandom at ALL yet, (besides a quick glance at the anon fic meme), nor have I looked at spoilers for upcoming episodes. Basically, some of this may be old news/rehashed in the general fandom, but it’s new to me.
First, some general thoughts, bullet point style!
So one of the things I have been turning around and around in my brain since last night when I watched the episode and would really love to discuss with people… ( and here there be spoilers...Collapse )
But, yes, these are just some possibilities I’ve been thinking about and I would love to hear other people’s thoughts!
(Incidentally, I’m writing this at work, so while I can post it, any replies to comments will probably come later. I’ll try to reply as soon as I can, but work stuff has priority, so…)

I have been meaning to post for...well. Since my birthday. Which was back at the beginning of November. Whoops. Better late than never? I'll get the hang of using my LJ again, honest. I refuse to give this place up. :

Meme the First
Reply to this post, and I'll tell you at least one reason why I like you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.
Meme the Second
There's this Female Character Flowchart out there that I'm sure most of you have heard of already. If you haven't, let me sum it up for you: basically, all fictional female characters fall into stereotypes and aren't "realistic." Also, this flowchart is done in a way that basically anyone can be crammed into one of their categories, as long as you ignore the more three-dimensional aspects of her characterization and focus on the most two-dimensional details available.
( the ladies~Collapse )
I'm gonna try and use my LJ again for reals, you guys.
29th March, 2010
Yeah, been forever again, I know. Still working on that. For now, another meme, stolen/modified from : puffs:
The first five people to comment in this post may request a character/pairing of their choosing, and I will produce a fanwork (drabble/sketch/icon/etc) featuring the character/pairing.
1. indefiance - Rukia/Byakuya
2. faemous - girl!Luffy/boy!Nami
3. hallowd - Chad
4. danbi - Yoshimori/Hiura
5. the_firefly Gray/Lluvia
So, yeah. This is me, trying to be productive again. I don't think I've written anything at all since January, haven't drawn in...forever. We shall see what this results in.

Have a random meme. I need to post in here more often again. :
This is a good multishipper meme, though.
Give me a character and I will tell you:
+ Favorite pairing for them.
+ Runner-up pairing.
+ Honorable mention(s).
+ Crack pairing(s).
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't.

What's up? :
I never post any more, partly because I feel like when I do it should be ~worthy~ or something, since it's been so long. Which is dumb.
However. This prompted a post out of me, because it filled me with impossible glee. I mean. What could possibly make One Piece even more amazing that it already is?
( How about...Collapse )
People who were on AIM last night before I went to bed already witnessed my spazzing, but THIS IS JUST SO GREAT, YOU GUYS.
I expect lots of art on Pixiv based on this too. DON'T DISAPPOINT ME, JAPAN.
ETA: Now the picture isn't showing up. IS THIS TOO EPIC FOR LJ?? *re-ups somewhere else*

5th November, 2009
Okay, people are leaving me happy birthday comments on the one and a half-month old meme that is the last thing I posted, so it's probably high time to actually update again. I've been distracted, what can I say. I have a new power cord again, yes. So that's good! Also, : autophanous arrived, crashed on my couch for a couple weeks, and now we've rented a bigger apartment together, in the same building (which reminds me...updated address, again--it's just a different apartment number). So as moves go, it was relatively easy, since it was just down the hall. Still, moving apartments twice in the span of like three months isn't exactly awesome, and I'll be glad not to have to do it again for (hopefully) a good long while. We JUST got the internet hooked up again here.
Ugh, and it's been such a while since I've updated, I feel like there is a lot to say, and yet nothing terribly important that warrants livejournaling. Or maybe it just feels like that because I tend to tweet about things while they happen, and then it feels like I've already talked about them, so I don't in LJ. Meh.
Right now I am trying to decide if I want to sign up for Yuletide this year, and kind of cursing that I didn't nominate fandoms, because a few of the ones I searched for aren't in there. Blast. Kekkaishi is, but so far that's the only one I'd really like to request in (though I'm still making my way through the list). And it occurs to me that the fandom I'd most like fic for is still One Piece, which wouldn't qualify for Yuletide in the first place, so...I may just opt out this year.
I am just kind of generally headachy and anxious-feeling and blah right now. My laptop wasn't starting up properly earlier and it took forever to get it to, and I still haven't figured out what's causing it. Today was really underwhelming in general, which is a little depressing. I dunno. I'm in kind of a funk, I guess.WHAT A GREAT TIME TO CHOOSE TO UPDATE.
Hm. Well. autophanous and I totally saw They Might Be Giants on Tuesday, so that was amazing and exciting. There are probably other things I could mention, but they all slip my mind just now, and TMBG is probably the most important thing anyway, so just focus on that.

22nd September, 2009
I have been having just the worst streak of luck lately, seems like. Nothing huge and earth-shattering, no, but just a bunch of lame stuff--some of it very minor--and just when I think my luck is starting to turn around, I find out it was just to lull me into a false sense of security! :
So, right now, I am updating this from my PS3, because...my laptop's charger/AC adapter cord just randomly stopped working. This may sound familiar. This cord is actually a replacement one I got just a few months ago when my last cord randomly died. That one...okay, it wasn't massively old, but I'd had it for a while, so though it annoyed me, I could accept it. This one was like...I believe I got it in June. Anyway, I contacted the place I got it from, and they are replacing it, but in the time it'll take for me to ship the faulty one back and wait for the replacement, I am effectively computerless again. I have the PS3, but it's very limited. In fact, I have to stop here because I'm out of space. sigh.

Once again, a month has slipped by without a post from me. Ugh. I kind of sort of have an excuse, as I was busy with moving and getting that stuff all lined up. Here are some bullet point highlights of the past month or so... :
That's a pretty half-assed update, but at least it's something. I miss using my LJ. Meh.
ANYWAY. Here's a random meme that looked appealing to me:
Give me the title and fandom of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it. In return I will tell you any of these from my never-written story: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

: autophanous, I got your letter yesterday! Expect one back. ♥
I'm bored, so have a meme! In fact, have two!
Meme the First:
Give me a number from 1 to 5026, and I will upload the corresponding picture from my fanart folder.
I am actually pretty new to saving much fanart to my hard drive, so I can say right now that the majority of it is One Piece (though Bleach makes a pretty good showing as well), but there is a good variety of my other fannish loves, albeit in smaller numbers.
and from the_firefly & tsundere,
Meme the Second:
Comment to this entry with any fandom. If I'm knowledgeable enough in the fandom to have ships, I'll tell you one non-canon ship I like, one canon ship I like, and one ship I really don't like (either canon OR fanon).
Feel free to ask for multiples on either one, especially the picture one. Like I said, I am bored.

my thread here
It somehow ended up being a month again since I last wrote in my LJ. Whoops.
Life has been...challenging lately. I'm trying to stay positive and get through it.
Anyway, I have some memes I intend to answer, but right now, the big order of business for this LJ entry is...
( suspense...Collapse )
That's it for now! Though if everything goes as planned, I will have pictures of niece #2 within a week or so.

This seemed like fun. :
1. Choose an episode of anime or television series you have on your computer. Make sure you're certain you want that one, you cannot change or mind once you skip this step. DO NOT TELL YOUR FLIST WHAT YOU CHOSE.
2. Make note of how long the episode is here -> 27:48
3. Ask your f-list to choose a time between 00:00 and whatever the length of your episode is. Be specific, (ie: 19:11, 21:09, 02:42)
4. Make them an icon using THAT FRAME ONLY no matter what it is. And remember, you can only use that ONE episode you chose previous, even if the person posting isn't familiar with it.

So! Here is some stuff I wrote in the past six months or so (it is mostly One Piece): :
I had a question, but now I can't remember what--oh wait, never mind. I just remembered. Does anyone know if there is a One Piece daily digest comm on LJ, similar to bleach_news or atla_press?
...It's painfully obvious that One Piece has taken over my brain, isn't it? It's nice, though. I haven't felt this excited about a fandom since I first started getting really into Bleach.
I kind of feel like writing right now actually, so...I'm gonna go with that urge.

I linked this in Twitter already, so some of you will have already seen it, but basically...I'd love for all and sundry to spam me with prompts over at my writing journal. I know when I take requests I rarely end up finishing them all, even though I try...but this is a little different. I'm hoping to find inspiration, but I'm making no guarantees on writing everything. Because of this, I'd actually prefer you leave a lot of prompts, because it'll give me more to work with. Think of it as doing me a small favor. Anything goes! :

First things first: I have a Dreamwidth account. Predictably enough (since I like having the same username everywhere), I'm : prpl_pen @ DW; add me if you've got one! No, I'm not migrating or leaving LJ, I don't even know if I'll even use it at all, but I was kind of planning to at least archive and crosspost fic there? We shall see, I guess.
Then, speaking of fic, I have a bunch of ones I've been meaning to link. A lot of it is gift!fic (and art) from Secret Santas, so...yes, it's been a long time since I meant to link.
( That actually took up more room than I though it would, so...*cuts*Collapse )
Meh. I should redo & better organize my LJ tags one of these soon days.
I've been watching the One Piece anime pretty hardcore the past few weeks. I think I will actually catch up soon if I keep at it. I just finished some really "ugh" filler after the big Water 7/Enies Lobby arc, and I think it's going into Thriller Bark now? Yay, Brook! I know he has the same seiyuu as did Jaken, and he was constantly hilarious, so I'm interested in seeing what he does with Brook.
That's about it. ...For NOW.

23rd April, 2009
I am long, long overdue for an actual journal entry. I keep putting it off, though. Partly, I think, I've just been in hiding. Things have not been the greatest lately, and I haven't been in the best mood or frame of mind, and...okay, I know I can write about whatever I darn well please in my own journal, but I like to think of it as my happy place, as my fandom place, and keep the personal whining/ranting/whatever to a minimum. It's not even as much for other people's benefit as for my own right now. So...maybe at some point in the future I'll feel comfortable writing up a long entry about my ~trials and tribulations~, but now is not that time. Right now I mostly just realized that I MISS LJ, and I miss the people here, and I miss commenting and all that. I miss : you all.
For a good long while there I was still faithfully reading my flist, even though I rarely commented, but I admit in the past few weeks I have gotten mostly lax even about reading people's entries half the time. And, yeah, I miss it. I don't want to just hide away and forget people and be forgotten because of it. I miss a lot of people and it is no one's fault but my own that I haven't been reaching out like I used to. And the longer I went without posting, the bigger a deal writing a new entry seemed to me. It's not like I even write much about my personal life in here to begin with, and I don't think I really expected to have to write a really detailed personal entry, but it was more what it represented to me, you know?
...Haha, this entry makes no sense and is probably somewhat melodramatic anyway. Whoops. It's a start, though. I feel like the seal has been broken. It should get easier again from here, I hope. Baby steps.
Aaand I was planning on segueing into some fandom/writing stuff from here so this entry would have a little more measurable content, but you know? I think I'm fine just leaving it as is.

I don't even know. Apparently it's been almost a month since I last wrote in here so...oops? Things have been busy, but in a slippery way where I didn't really feel busy, or rushed, but was just preoccupied enough with various tasks that I'd look back at the end of the day and go, "Whoa, where did the time go?" This has resulted in me being extremely neglectful of my LJ, my flist and commenting (as well as RP), not to mention various other things. :
Holiday cards, for one. They are still going out, but a lot later than planned. In years past, they would have long since arrived for everyone by now, excepting maybe a few overseas people. This year, not so much. They'll probably not be in the mail till Friday, so most domestic people should get them before New Years, at least. I hope. There are a few of you also getting packages (you probably know who you are), and those won't be going out till sometime in January, but I'll send your cards with the rest so you'll at least get those sooner. I'm sure it's not even a big deal to most people, but I wanted to give a status update, because I feel bad for being so very not-on-the-ball.
And while we're on the subject of cards...ariyanaforever, dawnrune, feenekks, fightfair, lintsister, and the_firefly: I got your cards/packages! ♥

Have a good Thanksgiving tomorrow, those of you who celebrate it! Please enjoy this video.
I'll be going to my family's for Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I probably won't be around online much for the next couple days. Now I have to try to fall asleep at a semi-decent hour tonight so I can wake up early enough to drive there in time for dinner. Shh. It COULD happen.
