So for my Po icon, it was "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden, for this Dipsy icon, it's "Hot in Here" by Nelly.

It's funny that I make the best Cloud icon ever, and since I really don't. like. cloud; I'm never ever going to use it. I will post it on [community profile] hiraethe when I get around to updating with the monster FFVII post (really, it is a monster-- truth)

Also.. next project after I get done with my icon challenges will be a fammix.. got the best idea in the car on the way to work

Watching episodes of Teletubbies in order to screencap Po for the icon challenge.

Oh. My. God. I am just dead.

But I have a lot of good fodder for icons now.

Yep, I'm nuts. (this probably isn't healthy)

For anyone who doesn't want to click the cut-text, how are y'all? Any special projects you are working on?

So the next [community profile] lands_of_magic challenge is called "Love Letters", potential for 80 points-- each letter is approximately 20 points each. Now, I haven't written fic in a while so I'm a bit rusty however I have an idea and it's a wonderful way of sort of remembering a fandom that I really did love with my whole heart (I'm looking at you-- Xenogears)

Ahahahah-- fic, this is so amusing! (have the first one almost finished)

So yesterday I read an article (and posted my rage on facebook) about the 30 most useless playable characters in video games. One of them happened to me my first ever video game love of all time? "Who is this?" you inquire. WELL I WILL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, It is Magus Zeal from Chrono Trigger. Alot of people who have gone the distance with me are probably thinking/saying, I thought that was Citan Uzuki from Xenogears. Nope, Citan was my college crush-- Magus happened when I was a sophmore/junior in high school (he happened the same year that Setzer Gabbiani also happened to me, yet another love of mine).

And Magus? Totally not useless. I mean here was the option in the game, either get Magus in your party and have a killer awesome spell called "DARK MATTER" -or- you can shun him and then Frog becomes a human AT THE VERY END OF THE GAME, POST CREDITS- To me the choice was completely without a doubt natural. Fuck yeah, give me Magus-- yeah, I understand if you are a DIE HARD FROG fangirl-- but sorry, gotta take the extra Deeps to my party.. and when he casts spells, it looks like he was doing some awesome vogue-movement.

But this also hurt my soul a little bit because while I may have RP'd Citan Uzuki more, I think that as far as characters go, Magus has the one-up because I've had a fanfic writing in my head, think pure Butterfly Effect involving Magus and an original character (before y'all scream Mary Sue at me, this character has faults and isn't a self insert and I'm not even apologizing. Y'all don't have to read this fic in my mind, so LET ME HAVE THIS). But the characters have this personality within my brain scape, and of course it's a crossover with another game (actually two games ever since I decideded to give Schala a boyfriend named Cid (*shifts eyes away from FFXIV and feigns innocence*). Let's just say the emotional attachment is there.

My other ship with Magus if I took away my fanfic-verse would be a trifle problematic-- so I don't think about it too much, except it only makes sense in a deep flowers in the attic sort of way that only being a child of Queen Zeal would warrent. (y'all are good at guessing, bet y'all can figure out that ship)

Now for a list-- so you can see exactly where the characters fall in their own. Going to do this with video game male characters only, I will do my top 10 female characters at a later date.

10. Cecil (FFIV)
9. Jin (Xenosaga)
8. Cid (FFXIV)
7. Asbel Lhant (ToG)
6. Schawnn/Raven (ToV)
5. Zack Faire (FFVII)
4. Laguna Loire (FFVIII)
3. Setzer Gabbiani (FFVI)
2. Citan Uzuki/Hyuga Ricdeau (Xenogears)
1. Magus Zeal (Chrono Trigger)

So--- tell me about your favorite male video game characters and why you love them!

Sooooo.... I've been picking away at this for a little bit now, and I figured it was finally time to start posting, lol. Are band aus cliche? Yeah, probably. Do I give a fuck? Noooope! 8D I'm having fun~

*depresses the caps lock* Alrighty, then.

First item of note: I would just like to say how very very very very happy I am that VIC MIGNOGNA is FINALLY getting held accountable for his actions. As someone who has a friend that was sexually assaulted by him, and my best friend ALSO has a friend that was sexually harassed by him as well-- it's a long time coming. (for those of you who do not know who Vic is, he is/was a popular voice actor that is known for his voice as Edward Elric among other things. It's about time that he's being held accountable for his actions-- and getting tossed out of big name projects (looking at you RWBY) because now is not the time to let trash get away with shit-- the even worse things that he was sexually harassing girls (and some guys) and all the while he was also using his VA platform to Proselyte about Christ. Sorry Vic, but loving Jesus and wanting to see others love Jesus doesn't excuse you from 'decent behavior'. My heart also goes out to all the people that were inappropriately touched by that jackass as well.

I have been slacking on the icons thing, as well as a few other things-- probably because of VESPERIA~ (added note: I've seen everyone post their ADVENTURES IN KINGDOM HEART LAND and now I want to play the game-- never finished the first game, but I definitely can see myself playing the game-- maybe when I get (hopefully) my taxes back.

So now I am gonna sit my arse down and do some icons! I have a queue which I am gonna vigorously attack~ Woohoo! Hopefully I will not be detracted by season 2 of Harlots on Hulu. *crosses fingers*


Unlock my keyhole, baby~ ;3

It's been a busy little stretch of time since my last post! I still want to write up my thoughts on the rest of KH3 (since we've now.... beaten it twice a;lsdkjfs;lfdsjdklaslfkj), but since we were going too fast for me to be able to type it up as we went along I have to basically.... write the whole thing wholesale oops.... X0

Plus we're now heading into Katsucrunch, I'm still wrapping up my assignment for Chocolate Box, and I'm STILL dealing with brain fog... There's a lot going on!!!! I'm doing my best but there's just a lot!!! And that's to say nothing of how busy work has been and how much I've had to deal with people suddenly calling off...

We'll get there though. Killian and I are gonna be casual Axel and Saix for Katsu, and Pat's bringing his inimitable Roxas cosplay too! We made out like bandits on the wigs too... shop local, kids, you never know when you might snag 2 wigs + extra wefts for under $65~ Pat sewed all the extra wefts into Axel already, but we still need to manhandle Saix and figure out where we wanna put his/how many we're putting in. We also discovered that a different local place has ALL THE SHIT for handwefting wigs from scratch at REALLY good prices... we're probably going to snag some lace fronting pieces at some point for Axel and Saix (and Xigbarrrrrrr for when I eventually do my super trash son), but I don't think we're gonna have time before Katsu.

I am done with icon making--

I made this icon-- good game everyone, time to go home; I can't possibly top Po!

Actually can't go home just yet, still have to make my teletubbies sig tag for [community profile] lands_of_magic, then it will be time to go home.

Thursday night I rediscovered how much I think the teletubbies are cute (and Po.. PO!) and all the while I was giggling, my husband was shaking his head and going 'jesus...what did I marry?"

I need a good song for this icon-- why is black hole sun playing? why? is this a sign? I AM A TERRIBLE PERSON!

A fun game I play is imagining the icons sitting side by side on my icons page to have little bits of dialogue-- I am imagining the conversation that Zack Fair and Po are having right now-- I am sure that is super productive!
