always, always / I wanted us to be (always, always you and me)  
Back in Shanghai. More to come later, 'cause I've been posting too much to get through everything lately and I'm sure you could all use a break from me. 8D Anyway, since I'm bored - if anyone has the time to look at this month's 31_days themes, if you see one that sounds cool -and- could fit with a fandom I know, please suggest (though please, nothing due before the 12th)? My writing's getting rusty. (Or, if you have any other requests in general, I completely don't mind. :D)

I have too many fandoms and yet none at all, but if you know I know something, try it. Otherwise, what are the current obsessions...Black Cat (still ;;;;;), Fairy Tail (though I have two unfinished oneshots for this that are just so...frustrating, 'cause - me and humor = bah), Lie to Me (though fic for it...hm I dunno), DOGS, Gurren Lagann, Fire Emblem always and forever. Otherwise...I dunno. Suzumiya Haruhi, Soul Eater, Ghost Hunt, Fate/stay night, P3? Etc etc etc?

...I wish I brought my PS3. Except I'd have never trusted the airplane with it but. but. but. I miss my Valkyria Chronicles and sob. ):

Personally, I vote you come back to the United States and visit me. Beat the jetlag!

But you know. Just my opinion. :D

Wellllllllllll there's nothing stopping you from visiting me, is there? ]:

(Also I have to discuss I Am The Messenger with you at some point and just. laksdjglskjdlkjdg. Oh my god. But as a side question to avoid spoilering everyone else, at the end, the young man who appears - is it something religious/faith/God? 'Cause that's all I can think of. Just wanted to be sure. Oh man that book, in a very good way.)
Alejandra (was here): bookwormthat_september on December 11th, 2009 04:41 am (UTC)
Ahhh, I'm so glad you liked it! We must IM soon. <3

The young man who appears is the author. I'm 99% sure.
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on December 11th, 2009 08:34 am (UTC)
Yes. :D

As in, Zusak himself? It'd make sense, but yeah, I'm just not quite sure. Totally need you to explain it to me sometime. 8D
Raerae00 on December 10th, 2009 10:11 pm (UTC)
I want all of them for Hei/Yin. :D ...after season 2. Gr, season 2.

Alternatively, anything FSN would be awesome.
a regular decorated emergency.: Train - 始まりはいつもそうdarkenedsakura on December 11th, 2009 12:49 am (UTC)
Wait, is season 2 done yet? I...uh, haven't gotten to seeing a single ep of it yet. 8D

You know, one of my stipulations was giving me one of the prompts. D8 They're all so wonderful this time but I just can't latch onto any of them like the usual. This is what happens when Black Cat's my major obsession. I hope I'm not all written out for FSN, though; we'll see?
Raerae00 on December 11th, 2009 03:36 am (UTC)
Nope, it's at 9 or 10, I think. I was about 6 eps behind before I started seriously following it...

XDDDDDDDDDDDD You say they're all wonderful every time. ...And you try to write them all. *sweatdrops* :D?
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on December 11th, 2009 08:35 am (UTC)
I'll get to it eventually. Should be 13 eps, so if they'll all get released soon and I can just download the batch torrent...

Pick a prompt for me damnit. Is what I think I was hinting at except it completely went over your head. ): -______-;;;;
Raerae00 on December 11th, 2009 09:13 am (UTC)

I got it. And ignored it. ;D
a regular decorated emergency.: Mitsurudarkenedsakura on December 11th, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
Though at this rate I probably should just consider downloading them individually. Meh. Which subs are good?

I too can be difficult. By not wrting. I'm playing DS games again, and I even studied a whole chapter of Japanese today. 8D 8D 8D 8D 8D
Raerae00 on December 11th, 2009 08:10 pm (UTC)
:D BSS is the fastest, as their name implies, and their subs tend to be good. I've been following them.

D: Which games?
a regular decorated emergency.: Rinslet - never the best of youdarkenedsakura on December 14th, 2009 02:57 am (UTC)
Hm, okay. I'll get on that eventually. I saw someone make icons of ep 10 and my first reactions were, "...wait, whyyyy Hei and Misaki. ...wait, wait, wait, Hei shaved?" Unless this wasn't season 2 ep 10, but. 8D

Oh you're going to laugh. One of the Pokemon mystery dungeon games to mindlessly while away time, actually (I really can't get these new Pokemon straight, too many of them and I'm an old school player D8), and my brother and I are going to play the Tales of Symphonia sequel together (though I already know the entire story, hahaha...). What do I call that anyway, Knights of Ratatosk or Dawn of the New World? ;;;
Raerae00 on December 14th, 2009 09:51 am (UTC)

...hahahaha. (I'd be right there with you except that I'm...not.)
Ah, I plan to play that eventually...maybe...why would you play a game you already know the plot of, anyway? XD;;
a regular decorated emergency.: CSI - Catherinedarkenedsakura on December 14th, 2009 12:29 pm (UTC)
Did he end up shaving after all, then? 8D And psh Hei/Misaki. I just...don't like her. And thus she's not cool enough for him, imo. ):

I never said I was a cool person. 8D (Ahaha. At least this game has a story?) I...wish I had other games to play, but I don't, so. And I was feeling a bit nostalgic. And have almost beaten the game in basically 2 days, so eh...

Wellllll, I wasn't planning on playing the game, see. But then I was at gamestop and it was their buy 2, get 1 sale and I realized I hadn't planned what games I was getting/they didn't have what I wanted, so... I always am wary of the "hey, those previous awesome good guys? Are BAD" plotline, but we'll see. The fighting system should be good enough at any rate...

Maybe I'll just...watch anime or something. I do have Canaan, Clannad, and Kara no Kyoukai now? Or I can read my textbooks, which...er, I actually have been doing. 8D;;;
Raerae00 on December 14th, 2009 06:16 pm (UTC)
Yep. And yep. But he seems pretty focused on Yin, which is good. For now.


WATCH THOSE. And yeah, I should go read my CS textbook...
a regular decorated emergency.: FE10 - Elinciadarkenedsakura on December 15th, 2009 09:45 am (UTC)
Remember, what's the chance of a pairing I like ever working out? 8D

...and my brother still can't get his hands on a Wii remote. I really wanted to play it with him, but it looks like that isn't going to happen. Arrrrrrrgh that idiot I can't believe he fucking lost it. alkdjglkdjg.

...;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Well, I've watched 2 eps of Canaan so far and I definitely approve? The way the portrayed Shanghai is marvelous. Oh, and it's a very pretty anime. 8D

Haha, I've started reading psychopathology and Japanese. Basically I'm making myself go through at least one chapter of something every day. It's working out pretty well - didn't expect the psychopathology chapters to be so long/dense, but the book's really student friendly at the very least.
Raerae00 on December 15th, 2009 10:44 pm (UTC)


Yus. >D

Huh...You're doing much better than me. I've gotten through all of a few random sentences of the CS107 textbook.
Although I think my focus isn't going to be on studying the text, but on studying how I learn, because I really need to change that.
a regular decorated emergency.: Morita - skies fall darklydarkenedsakura on December 17th, 2009 02:56 am (UTC)
Just had to remind you. 8D (I mean, geez, the one pairing I suddenly Really Liked in Rave Master............well, two chapters after I realized I really liked it, one person died, so. Just goes to show.)

Maybe I should play the game without him...I mean, the Symphonia player CPU is awful, but as long as I'm not going into something like Nephilim (where I -did- get a friend to play 2nd player and that saved me dearly)...

Well, I haven't touched my textbooks except for Japanese in the past two days, so. Today I'll change that - had a dream about a psychopathology/some kind of psych class with my old psych prof for some reason. O_o; And eh, how you learn? How so? If you had a problem with that, wouldn't that have been something that you needed to resolve in high school?
(Anonymous) on December 17th, 2009 05:53 am (UTC)

Eh? I did fine in ToS with the CPU.

Nope. The problem was high school. The way high school worked, you had to skim stuff, and rely on what the teacher told you to figure out what you had to cram for the exam. There was just way too much material, and for eight classes.
College, it doesn't matter what they tell you will be on the exam; they test you on everything. Critically. So I need to learn to study as I go, because it's impossible to cram for that kind of test.
a regular decorated emergency.: House - Camerondarkenedsakura on December 17th, 2009 12:42 pm (UTC)

No, it was mostly fine. But I was having minor trouble the first time I tried going through Nephilim (cut it really close time-wise), and with another person playing one of the party members, it was just so much easier.

Eh? High school and university don't feel that much different to me, except for how you have to turn in fewer assignments. Then again, we never could just skim for IB, and we only had 6.5 classes, so. Hm. Besides, high school's easier, and you got away with taking 8 somehow (don't most people take 7?). I never did do the cramming thing much either way; I tended to give up the night before as often as I studied fruitlessly until 2 a.m. 8D

Ahh...Valkyria Chronicles. I haven't played it much, but oh man, that game is great so far. Have you watched the fansub of the series yet? Are you waiting for Valkyria Chronicles 2 on the PSP?
a regular decorated emergency.: FE10 - Miadarkenedsakura on December 14th, 2009 02:58 am (UTC)
Isn't it?? 8D I miss it so much ): Hm, I've heard about the anime but I haven't gotten my hands on it yet. Is it worth watching? (I'm just sad that Vyse isn't a member of the brigade in it. ): )

And alas, I don't have a PSP...but that's all they're releasing it for? Seriously? Mumble mumble grr.
Dustinfg_rogue on December 14th, 2009 05:05 am (UTC)
It surely is. I haven't gotten far in it, but it's nice to have a copy of it since it's a little hard to find now.

I think it's worth watching, but I don't know how it ends. I've only got 24 of the 26 episodes right now. Other groups have it finished, but I'm waiting for Doremi to put out the last two. Of course, it's been a few months since they put out 24. I've still got faith in them as they did a sweet job on Bamboo Blade. As for the show, it seems to stick close to the game, what I've played at least. I'm fairly sure it's like that for the most part.

As far as I know, VC2 is PSP only. It's supposed to come out in Japan next month and the US in Summer 2010.
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on December 15th, 2009 09:43 am (UTC)
Oh really? I bought a new copy for $20 at Gamestop, so I figured it wasn't too bad to find...huh.

Ooooh. In that case, thanks so much for the rec; I'll download that during the break. :D :D

...aw bummer. Well...hm. Guess I won't be able to play it, haha. Then again, there's a small chance they'll make it for another system, right, but ah well. I've got enough stuff on my to-get-to list as it is. XD
Dustin: Needs More Cowbellfg_rogue on December 15th, 2009 05:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, not very many places have it. I was reading on a forum that the chances of finding a copy are becoming scarce. I mean some places still have it, but where I got it, Best Buy, doesn't carry it anymore.

No problem. If you want to be able to finish it, I'd say go with Gleam Street's final episodes. The only reason why I haven't gone with them is because they started subbing around episode 8 when it was obvious Ayako wasn't putting it out. They didn't start from episode 1 like most subbers do.

There is a small chance, but I really don't think it'll happen honestly. It just means you'll have to invest some money in a PSP. Good thing you can take a PSP wherever you go. *hint hint* :)
