unlocked fandom babble? say it's not so :O  
The past few days, I haven’t been sleeping. Haven’t been able to, really. And the number of hours I’d get would just keep dwindling and dwindling, from 5 to 3 to…so on. I was never tired or exhausted – couldn’t nap or even fall asleep during car rides – but the random headaches were worst. Even if my eyes were closing on me at my desk, once I got to bed I was wide awake again. Not even thinking about anything, but I was awake all the same. So I eventually gave up.

My parents aren’t panicking any more, at least. Though mom keeps pushing her “you just have to stop thinking so much” thing at me, like how she pushed the “you can’t do this! You’re young, you should be happy, you have lots of time ahead of you,” at that friend. I shouldn’t get bitter at her for that, though, because it’s what all people without the experience or training say. Sadly. No excuse for ignorance.

I’m a pretty sad person, sigh. Either way, I seem to finally be tiring myself out, so whatever.

We went out to see Hancock here, but I forgot that as it was a global release, that meant that they'd probably done the dub in time for it...and since we went to a smaller theater, not the one that does show English movies undubbed because of the expatriates...sob. We didn't know it was a Chinese dub until the movie started, and then me and my brother basically went "...oh, fuck." My parents asked if we wanted to leave, but whatever, we stuck it out. I mean, I could understand all of the main stuff, just none of the subtleties and only 40-50% of the jokes. The whole experience was irritating. And this makes me think that all Chinese female VAs/actresses' voices suck miserably, from everything I've heard so far. Is the flitty, flute-y, freaking annoying voice just that popular?! D: Sigh, otherwise. Dad was all "see that helped you practice your Chinese!" but lakdjg. It seemed pretty good from what I saw though, and holllllly shit Charlize Theron, but yeah, I have to go find an English version now. -_-

Yes, I’ve finished quite a few series over the past 1.5 months. Well, quite a few for me, at any rate, considering I don’t get into a lot. I watched La Corda d’Oro a while ago - shut up, Dex 8D - because damn, if Japanese dating sims aren’t the funniest things in the world. I played Tokimemo with Rika a while back just so we could laugh uproariously at everything. XD Dear god, all of the romance situations…ahahahaha, these writers must be on crack. I’m so glad these situations just can’t happen in real life. A-and dolphin…whispering. With a violin. Ahahahaha playing music to soothe a stressed dolphin reminds me of the more expensive beef which is supposed to be more tender due to how the cows were brought up on quality organic greens and, er, Mozart. 8D;;;; When Rika saw that scene, she bemoaned to me, “I don’t know what’s wrong with my country.” XD

But I really like Kahoko a lot, way more than I thought I would. Er, same with Hihara, which surprised me because I normally don’t like guys like him. He's probably my favorite of the five, actually. O_o I also don’t get why people dislike Tsuchiura or think he’s oddly perfect – so he can play soccer and piano well. I can play piano and swim well, amongst other things, so? Yunoki’s a bastard. I just don't go for 'dual' popular characters like that, those ones with a hidden face. Yunoki reminds me an awful lot of...hm, Zelos, in a subtle way, and while I know fangirls love him for his 'complexity' I could never like him either. (imo, simply being dual doesn't make you complex.) So, eh, dunno. I strongly disliked Tsukimori for a good half of the series and kept calling him a jerk, whether he's emotionally retarded or no. Shimizu makes me think that Fukuyama Jun is the scariest VA ever because…Lelouch = Sakaki (WHR) = Shimizu? Uhmmmmm. He’s…scary. ._.

The other thing about the series was the music. For the most part they picked nice enough classical selections, so that was nice, but...some of it was a bit unrealistic. So I've heard that what Tsukimori's capable of playing really does make him a very, very talented kid, but the piano selections don't impress me. Chopin's Fantasie/Impromptu 4 is within my playing capacity, if I'd learned it before I stopped three years ago. The fact that Tsuchiura learned that one Waltz when he was in elementary and then could play the Fantasie only years later is kind of strange. And then so on and so forth. Dunno. I'm going to show a few eps to that friend who's here, but from what I've mentioned already she agrees with that element of inconsistency. Rika was surprised at the music selection also, because there are more than enough children drilled in one form of music or another as their extracurricular, so it wouldn't have been unreasonable to assume that the writers would pick songs that fit advanced, advanced playing levels. But ah well, I guess most people wouldn't know these things so it worked out.

Otherwise, it was a hilarious series. Sure, I laughed at everything I probably wasn't meant to laugh at and what others would've swooned over, but oh hahahahaha, that was just plain hilarious. And Rika wants to get the game just to laugh at it, considering the anime was this funny XD Pairings-wise, I might like Hihara more, but the series has a definite Tsukimori/Kahoko slant, which I don't mind. While fic-searching I did find one that really captures the essence of what I laughed at when watching the series, which was great. XD And some of the oneshots aren't so bad. Otherwise...sappy cliches that I will just avoid, thankyouverymuch.



Finished watching all of the Evangelion stuff out there except the Rebirth recaps, and eh. I mean, yay Hayashibara Megumi’s voice, but…yeah, the manga’s so much better. Much, much better, especially manga!Kaworu. He was a multifaceted semi-bastard who I really liked there (introducing him earlier and allowing him to meet Rei was a smart decision), but in the anime, it was simply an Ishida Akira drive-by. D: Not that I didn’t appreciate that, but…I dunno, the Shinji-Kaworu interaction/semi-pairing in the anime was just weird. The manga gave it four dimensions. Then again, the manga leaned much more strongly towards Shinji/Rei also, but hm. Ponder ponder. 8D Anime definitely had more hints about Ritsuko, though, which I wish the manga had. And for some reason a lot of the Angel battles changed considerably. Also the character deaths…okay, so I liked the anime more in that regard, not counting the End movie. But the manga's take did make things darker. Hm.

Then again, Kaji’s character underwent the largest changes, I thought. The manga actually gave him a damn story, whereas in the anime he was just an accessory to Misato. Who honestly had more going for her in the manga as well. And, er, the anime’s sometimes Shinji/Misato slant was honestly just creepy. I wonder if there’ll be the Shinji/Asuka ending in the manga, though, seeing as it’s already incorporating End of Evangelion into its storyline? Damnit, I hope more chapters come out soon. Sob. Judging from what the manga's done so far, I think its End version will be less...jumpy? spontaneous? than the anime/movie. Well, I hope. It hasn't let me down so far.

But yes, eh the anime. And oh yeah, why did the end theme keep changing? Not the theme itself, but whichever version of the song they played. Different verses, remixes, different singers, duets, trios, etc etc. I thought that was highly odd. But ah well. Shinji’s still my favorite – he was more wimpy in the anime, I thought, but not too bad. I dunno, he just…seems real to me. Maybe because I’m a wimp as well. Dunno. Knowing that he's voiced by the same guy who voiced Yukito from CCS cracks me up, at least. XD



Dex was very excited, because I finally watched the Ghost Hunt eps I downloaded whilst in Japan. And ran through all of them in one day. 8D (Hey, I had 2 hours of CSI also, so.) And okay okay, that was a great recommendation, I admit it. Just rec me more atypical or non-shoujo and we’ll be great. 8D But oh yeah, it’s been so long since I’ve seem something truly mystery-themed and damned good at what it does. I mean, yeah, wow, the series is effective. What’s creepy is just plain creepy, the suspense keeps grabbing at me, etc. But that one huge maze house arc completely creeped me out. Anyone who I’ve talked to about Supernatural knows that the two episodes that got me the most were The Benders and Asylum. The Benders, which was ironic because the ‘monster of the week’ was actually a human factor, and Asylum because it was set in a real supposedly haunted asylum and…okay, I’m not comfortable with those scenes of the tiled room with the straps on the table and humans torturing humans and performing medical experiments on them and everything, like in Rose Red and with the Nazi party and everything. And while that arc didn’t get that full-blown, still. D8 But all of the cases and plotlines are written so well and escalate nicely.

Anyway, yeah, the series is good. At first it was kind of surprising that it just launched into the realm of ghosts, spirits, monsters, and the psychic, as an almost accepted sort of…science, even? I mean, even Mai, who wasn’t part of the whole group at first, wasn’t...well, she was surprised, but never, “oh my god, I didn’t think spirits actually existed!” Actually, all of the clients as well. Compared to them, the number of doubters was quite small. Which makes me wonder how much this has been set into the future, because it said that paranormal researchers accepted the existence of so and so, but when I had to research psychic phenomenon for English, it was a bit more ambiguous. So hm. Either way, though.

Hahaha, I think I have a new favorite character now. Though to be honest…when I first saw Naru, I was just thinking, “please, tell me he’s only here for this arc. Make him goooo awayyyyyyyy.” Uhm, yes, that was a great knee-jerk reaction of mine. XDDD And then I was confused because his name is Shibuya Kazuya, but I knew one of the main characters was Naru and he seemed like what I’d heard about him from Dex, but…Shibuya Kazuya? And then I got the Shibuya Kazuya = narcissist = Naru-chan = Naru, and he’s too damn good looking, and that sort of sealed the deal. 8D Shallow shallow. But hm, now I’m reading the manga, since the anime only got to clarifying just one of the many mysteries surrounding him. Read the canon info page though, and…wow, the author really got it all good and figured out. I’m still hmmmmm at the ending regarding Mai and Naru, though, and how the 2nd novel series from what I've heard so far didn't address the ramifications of their final talk beforehand. I mean, eh. Ehhhh. Dex help, there must be more canon info out there than that. D:

I like Mai a lot more than I thought I would, actually. She’s along the same vein as Kyouko (Skip Beat!) or even Kahoko (La Corda), honestly, and I do like them. Er, probably Kahoko more because she’s a bit…not as prone to jumping around, but Mai’s got her own charm. I found it interesting that she told Naru that she assumed he fit the description of ‘handsome’ because of how her classmates reacted to him, but unlike other heroines, she eventually realized that she liked him and just ran with it. Points to her for that. But then there was that...other problem in the novels, though I wouldn't attribute it to any kind of heroine density. Etc etc. Yeah, I'm talking about the thing with Gene, if you know.

Yes, Dex, I do like Bou-san…though I was horribly confused at first because you kept telling me that I have to like him no matter what but no one’s name was Bou and, yeah, lost…until I realized that meant monk and ohhhhhhh. 8D Hahaha. Ha. I mean, eh, the whole ensemble’s nice – Yasuhara is excellent, telling stories like that with such straight faces XDDDD – but yeah, Naru and Mai (and yes Bou-san, backup band bass-playing monk and all 8D) are way ahead of the rest of the bunch.

This has the most blatant main pairing ever. I mean, honestly, ff.net has almost no slash or alternate pairings. It’s quite amazing. (Though, as about 87% of the fic is Naru/Mai, and most of that 87% is bad, I’m…done with pairings for the day. -_-) I have never seen this, ever. :O :O :O I mean, even with other atypical shoujo series...for example, Gakuen Alice does lean heavily towards Natsume/Mikan, but you still get the odd Ruka/Mikan fan here and there.



But yes, after all of those series. Mmmmmn Naru. See, there’s an emotionally retarded character that I like. I dunno – Dex was baffled when I said I didn’t like Tsukimori (initially; yes, blasphemy, whatever) or Yunoki or a bunch of characters who again are supposed to be my favorites. Everyone should just give up on pegging me because what I watch and who I like, I have discovered, are entirely unpredictable. :D Ouran’s still the biggest case of that. There wasn’t a single person who didn’t think that Kyouya would have been my favorite, but he doesn’t even rank up there for me ._.

Eh, though, okay, yeah, sometimes who I don’t like surprises me as well. I actually thought I’d like Tsukimori a lot more. Naru didn’t surprise me. XD I didn’t think I’d like Kahoko, nor Mai. Then again, I’ve realized that most of the characters whom I absolutely love and adore…are ones who I’d absolutely hate, loathe, and detest in real life. If I met a real Hei, I’d probably run far and wide. I would probably have glaring matches with Naru. Fill in every other favorite character of mine in those blanks as well. Even the girls…well, it wouldn’t be that problematic, and I think I’d get along nicely with Haibara, but I think I’d see them like the second lunch table next to us. That’s all. I dunno, is this strange? 8D What can I say…characters whom I don’t have to interact with are one thing, but I won’t deal with them in real life.

Oops, haven’t effectively studied Japanese or Chinese all week. I guess that goal of getting fluent in Chinese over the summer is definitely going to go straight out the window…*headdesk x 100*

I should also probably stop being depressed and an insomniac. Though I’ll never take that suggestion of antidepressants and sleeping pills. Ever.

Hm, I feel like changing my tags system. It's horribly and unnecessarily convoluted. I really am meticulous, to have a numbering system in there. -____-

There's plenty of Shinji/Kaworu in the manga, but the difference is it's all one-sided. If I remember correctly, which, yeah.

Oh...Yeah, I kind of remember seeing the first few eps of Ghost Hunt. And, uh, how'd you miss his nickname? She even tells him what it means when she first calls him that...But I think I actually dropped Ghost Hunt, instead of just not watching it like I thought. Hm. The series I was thinking of must've been a different one...not that I know which.

*shrugs*

Ahahahaha. Haibara and I would smirk at each other once, and never see each other again. The rest, I dunno.
a regular decorated emergency.: Inaradarkenedsakura on July 18th, 2008 02:41 pm (UTC)
Nah, I don't think so. Remember after Kaworu's exit, Shinji admitted to Misato that he was attracted to him on some level? The difference was that their relationship wasn't so........spontaneous. The anime's version honestly startled me in that aspect. But then the manga didn't do that, and gave Kaworu a personality, so. Plus the Kaworu-Rei interaction I thought was a very nice addition.

It wasn't until the mid-end that she decided on calling him Naru, I think, so it wasn't until then that it clicked. And yeah, hahaha...I was going to say, er, no slash hintings in GH at all, what were you on, etc. XD Either way. Though looking at various novel snippets...I wish my kanji skills were good enough to allow me to read those. Damnit, I utterly hate kanji. ksgjdk.

XD I dunno, I just don't see how girls can utterly swoon over guys like that in real life. I mean, the fact that those dating sims are marketed for people who actually like that kind of stuff, not towards people who treat them as parodies like me. Yeah, I dunno; I'll never be able to understand people. 8D And no matter how much of an emotional retard I am and how interesting those characters are, having to actually deal with them...urrrrk. Pass. I know how difficult I am, let alone other people.
Raerae00 on July 20th, 2008 11:36 pm (UTC)
The most recent chapters I read pretty much had Shinji cold-shouldering him, so I don't think so. But I agree with the rest of it...not that there was much Kaworu-Rei interaction, unfortunately. >_>

Huh? Like I said, I only saw the first couple eps. I'm pretty sure it happened within there, or I wouldn't have a clue what you were talking about. Unless I finished it and had a serious memory failure? O_o .........It's not on the list. Anywhere. That's odd. o_O Oh well. Must've dropped it before I made the dropped list and then forgot about it to add it. Mm. Did you look for translations?

Ahahahahahahaha. I'd just be amused at them in real life, as you are in game. Unless they hurt me or mine, and then I would be less-than-amused. But that's true of any type of person.
a regular decorated emergency.: GS - Athrun/Cagallidarkenedsakura on July 22nd, 2008 06:47 pm (UTC)
No, he does cold shoulder him, but he still admitted the attraction thing to Misato after Kaworu died, which went into that whole conversation about how humans need humans and I guess some sort of reflection on the flip side of instrumentality. And hahaha, what was there was still good, so I'm not complaining. With Asuka as well, so.

It happened in the middle of the first ep. I watched it again today as I showed it to Rika, so I'm pretty sure. 8D ...Oh, sorry, I didn't mean mid-end of the series. My baddddd. And there are no translations - baka-tsuki has one chapter of one novel done for some reason, I guess as testing? But Rika said that if she can find the novels, she'd completely translate the last two novels for me which I'd need for uh writing purposes so I'm happy 8D

I'm strange, what can I say :D The people who tend to hurt me are people that are...far more banal, or just..........overly complicated. One day I will get over this, I swear.
Raerae00 on July 22nd, 2008 08:40 pm (UTC)
I'll take your word for that part...*doesn't remember* And yeah, true.

Blaaaaah, one volume in Baka-Tsuki. Don't remind me of single-volume stories in Baka-Tsuki. Where is my Fate/Zeeeerrrooooo...T_T

Mmph. Naw, I'm probably the strange one. 8D Hurt you how?
a regular decorated emergency.: Sam - :|darkenedsakura on July 23rd, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
XD Is the manga on a hiatus or something? It seems to have been a while. D:

Ahahaha. Sigh, I just want the next SH volume to come out.

We're strange in our own ways? 8D Dunno. Probably just psychologically and emotionally. I can take care of myself as I don't pull punches, on the physical front, so it's not that.
Raerae00 on July 23rd, 2008 07:20 pm (UTC)
Eh, the manga-ka just takes forever. I think there was a year's wait between the most recent volume and the one before that.

Fate/Zeeerrrrrrrrroooooooooo. T_T

That works. 8D Physical aside - you have no defense mechanisms? Or they get through them, but how? o_o
a regular decorated emergency.: Ouran - Hikarudarkenedsakura on July 25th, 2008 04:17 am (UTC)
...Damnit. D: Then again, Ghost Hunt recently got the same way - the mangaka stopped serializing in favor of releasing directly as tankoubon, but promised two volumes every year. Then the last publication date announcement got rescinded. ;_;

XD

It's to be expected of us, though, really. XD Defense mechanisms of what sort? I mean, I have to fight my depression as well, so I don't have a ton of walls left for anything else. And you know me, I'm guarded, and I never let people know anything, or they can never see through my flimsy acting. Sometimes I can pull the really angry stunt and they'll leave me alone. Sometimes I retreat and go somewhere else for break or lunch. Dunno really what you mean by defense mechanisms.
Raerae00 on July 25th, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
Yep. I think they release individual chapters in...some sort of form, though, so I guess all is not lost.

T_T

Wouldn't have it any other way. 8D So stop fighting it. That's basically what I did. Drown in it long enough that you get truly sick of it, shove it away as hard as you can, and if it sticks then accept that it's there, that it probably will be for a while, and move on. It can be useful, you know, if you learn to use it instead of letting it use you.

Mm...Sounds about right. I'd have to see this so-called "flimsy" acting for myself to know what you mean by it, though.
a regular decorated emergency.: Luke - sadness of timedarkenedsakura on July 26th, 2008 06:15 pm (UTC)
...But none of those have come out lately eitherrrr. 8D

XD;;;;

...Okay, I guess you have a point. :\ It's a bit hard. If I stopped fighting it, I'd honestly start to worry about my physical well-being. As in, if I ended up doing something to myself, or gave in one day to the idea of offing myself. On some of the really bad days when I'm really despondent, that thought repeats in my head, so...yeah, if I don't fight it, well. I've accepted that it'll be here for a while, but...you know how I am with accepting things. I can't seem to move on, either. Again, you know this. :P And how the hell can I -use- my depression?

Well, since I guess you'll never see it...no idea. I dunno, to me it's flimsy, but maybe I can see through myself easily. I honestly don't know, and I never really asked people like Blair or Rika what they saw in my gestures.
Raerae00 on July 27th, 2008 12:34 am (UTC)
Never mind that where's all the Fate/Zerrooooo? T_T

XDD Mm. But of course we're different enough that you'd have to find your own way...should've known that. >_> Oh well, never mind.

Mmph. I'd sure hope you can see through yourself. Can you...use others as funny-house mirrors? I mean, can you tell, by how they react, how they see you?
a regular decorated emergency.: Dean - I love kidsdarkenedsakura on July 27th, 2008 02:02 pm (UTC)
........XD;;;;;

... 8D

Nope. Well, it was obvious that some thought I was aloof or arrogant or threatening, but again, you know how the people who seemed to be nice to me turned out. The people were too complicated and complicating over here, I guess.
Raerae00 on July 28th, 2008 12:42 am (UTC)
T_T

8D

Mm...Or the web was more tangled or something. The people I had to deal with, I knew only from one angle; and ditto them for me. It's pretty easy to know what they think of you, when you know that one angle.
a regular decorated emergency.: (D)aisukedarkenedsakura on July 28th, 2008 07:37 pm (UTC)
I'll just...go back to my Suzuimya Haruhi and Ghost Hunt, then. 8D But I will get you into Ghost Hunt one day, so, yeah. I'm sure you could help me think of plausible supernatural plot elements/deaths/etc.

I make everything more difficult. What can I say?

Well I only knew them from one angle; the school one, right? The one where I was pedestaled and dehumanized. Only 3-4 people ever saw anything more, so I'm not sure what you mean.
Raerae00 on July 30th, 2008 03:07 am (UTC)
Mmph. Such confidence...No, you're not going to get me into Ghost Hunt. Not unless I seriously run out of things to do between now and mid-September...and have you seen my newly updated Currently Watching list? XD;;

...8D

Hmm. Then I don't know. Though, who were those 3-4 people? XD;
a regular decorated emergency.: House - Camerondarkenedsakura on July 30th, 2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
It's not confidence; I just think that you could help me figure out said plot things. Though I suppose that if I take up this project, I'd have to actually...do research. Ehhhh. I mean, I've had to look up things on gun models before, but...I hate research.

Though some people refuse to accept it and then keep pushing at me to do shit...well, anyway.

Uhmmm. Alex, Rika, Vuyo, Renee a tiny bit, maybe Bert and Natalie - but the last three are kind of eh who knows. And then Blair, Rosen, Kemsley, and Edmunds, but teachers don't count. I would expect them to be a little smarter and more mature. I know, bad expectation, but.
Raerae00 on July 30th, 2008 07:40 pm (UTC)
De, confidence. Hahaha, research. Anyone who's done research for a fanfic either is interested in the subject anyway or hasn't got enough to do.

Mm. >_>

...Hmm. Yeah, probably not a good expectation to have.
a regular decorated emergency.: CSI - Nick Stokesdarkenedsakura on July 31st, 2008 10:36 am (UTC)
Eh, I've seen people look up things like mythology, etc, and I think that's a smart and valid thing to do. This might be because I know enough that if they get a detail -wrong-, it'll nag me for the rest of the fic. So yeah, I gotta look up...what would it be called. Folklore? About humans controlling spirits and all that.

Of course, I suppose you could just say I don't have enough to do. *shrug*

Totally not directed at anyone in particular, this one. Mmnhmm.

Case in point: idiot math teacher. Oh well! 8D Our expectations of most of them hit the mark more or less, anyway. Otherwise I'd have lost a lot more faith back then.
Raerae00 on August 1st, 2008 09:30 pm (UTC)
*shrugs* They probably had an interest in it anyway, or why write about it? I'm sticking to my original theory. And of course you don't have enough to do. -roll

Mmnhmm...

XD;;; Mm...as opposed to losing a lot more now? XD;
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on August 2nd, 2008 04:29 am (UTC)
Yeah, I don't really have an interest in the supernatural/folklore, so...sigh. Plus, it's really hard to find info on this stuff here. Blagh. And nope, you know how I flit from thing to thing.

8D

Back then meaning during the...thing. And hey, I've lost almost all my faith in almost everyone involved. Goooooood stuff.
Raerae00 on August 3rd, 2008 05:11 am (UTC)
XDD ...Ha, still not nearly as bad as me - just check how many anime each of us has watched. 8D

TSUKIMORI LEN DOLPHIN WHISPERER
...I still maintain that was the greatest thing ever in the history of cliched shoujo harem anime. I will NEVER stop laughing. EVER.

Also I need a Dolphin Whisperer icon, do you think you could oblige? :P

YAY to unlocked fandom squee posts! I'm glad you're coming out of your cage/and you're doing just fine trying new things and I'm especially glad about the whole Ghost Hunt thing, as you know. I'm honestly thrilled that you enjoyed the series as much as you do and I hope we can help each other out on the whole fic-writing front. And I'm stoked that you liked Naru, he's just awesome and definitely deserves the love.

Boo to liking Hihara and Tsuchiura, I can't believe we have exact opposite feelings in regards to the La Corda men. When did your fandom tastes change so much?! It used to be I could predict stuff, but now, not so much. Oh well. :D
a regular decorated emergency.: Swift like ninjadarkenedsakura on July 18th, 2008 03:04 pm (UTC)
Re: TSUKIMORI LEN DOLPHIN WHISPERER
I can't say that I will, either. Crack, utter crack. XDDDDD

Hmmmmmm. Give me a few more details/requirements/images and we'll see. ;)

Haha you're quite funny aren't you Yes, yes, though I'm telling you it won't change a thing. XD And nope, it'll completely be me waiting for fic from you, not really the other way around. Sorry 8D;;;;;;

:( And I still find it funny that you thought Yunoki would completely be my favorite, too. But hey, hey, we're not total opposites - I eventually liked Tsukimori, remember? 8D A-and I dunno. I don't feel like I've changed, I just...don't fit predictable molds? D8 8D

Hm, now I really -do- need icons from all three of these series. Hahahahaha. sadly I'd probably just make all of them too, sigh 8D
