capncosmo: Captain Janeway wants to know why you fail so hard (Janeway)
So, I had another nightmare last night. I think it has to do with the fact that there is a JERK on the INTERNET whom I don't want to link to because A) he will make you sad, and B) jerks don't deserve more internet traffic. So instead of being :/ at the jerk and my parent's insensitive comments; WELCOME HOME, I thought I would respond to this post instead (WARNING: The background gif is kind of disturbing; I will try to include all relevant parts of the question in my response, so hopefully you won't have to go there if you don't want to), because I always love meta about asexuality and writing and writing asexuality.

Describing the Elephant: How I handle character's sexualities when I write )

And now, I will go back to be anti-social/borderline sick/depressed/useless :Db

...but I am serious about my SP.

Soon, tonight's SP special will appear on the internet. DO NOT WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE FIRST MOVIE AND DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED. It completely spoils the whole thing, and we're only 30 minutes in.

In other news, I recently rewatched Kabuto, and I actually have no new thoughts on it. Deka, on the other hand... I'm pining for Tetsu, you guys. (We're actually stopped on the episode before he gets introduced.) This is not cool.

As sort of an addendum to yesterday's post, let's talk about kanji on a more philosophical level. I mean, why should you even need kanji at all, right? I ran across this Tofugu article about kanji learning, and I realized not everyone in the world is as convinced as I am about the value of kanji.

Why is it important you learn kanji? )

Or, how I learned 900 kanji in less than a year.

So! Today we are going to talk about the thing I've devoted the last ~9 mo. to AND SO CAN YOU: The Japan Kanji Aptitude Test, or Kanji Kentei (日本漢字能力検定)

Wait! Don't run away! Just because it's a kanji test doesn't make it really scary! I promise.

In conclusion, I hope this will be helpful to all of you out there studying Japanese! Please tell me if there's anything I've forgotten in the comments :D

2011 Prompt Post

Open to any persons, friended or not, as many prompts as they'd like, for the entire year of 2011.

Please provide a fandom and a prompt. Help with my fandoms is here, and help with prompts is... um... Well, they can be anything from "Ryoutarou, chocolate" ([ profile] estirose) to some elaborate crossover scenario requiring Plot Devices to even get the characters in the same millennium (...[ profile] kades905).

There is no limit on the number of requests.

I do reserve the right to refuse prompts at my discretion. Although I usually don't.

The List )

There are too many music programs on today, but I don't mind :D

Title: Unadorned (素)
Fandom: Kamen Rider W
Characters: Hidari Shoutarou, Philip, Narumi Akiko, bits of Terui Ryuu and the Fuuto Irregulars
Word Count: 2,278
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Kamen Rider W belongs to Toei. This is a not-for-profit derivative work with no connection to Toei, and no infringement is intended.
Summary: Shoutarou would be anyone for Philip, but who he wants to be most is himself.
Warnings: SPOILERS for the end/epilogue of W, and, kind of, the new movie(?) (If you haven't seen the movie, you wouldn't even notice them). Contains characters expressing mild homophobia, mild violence (Akiko), manhandling, sexual themes(?).
Author's Notes: Set not long after the epilogue, but before the movie. When I write, I can sort of see it in the TV of my head, and this is written in a spare sort of style (I'd rather it be a doujin, but I can't draw), so I'd advise you to do the same. Shoutarou always sits on the left because dude's friggin' name is "left" for pete's sake.

Unadorned (素) )
capncosmo: Well this is awkward (Awkward)
Title: Heartbreaker
Fandom: Enjin Sentai Go-Onger
Characters: Everyone
Word Count: 1,241
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Go-Onger belongs to Toei, so don't look at me.
Summary: Heartbanki is out to ruin Valentine's Day, but there's no way the Go-Ongers would allow that!
Author's Notes: For [ profile] viridian_blue5, who requested "Hiroto, Chocolate." It's only kind of related, but *shrugs* SPECIAL THANKS TO [personal profile] defeatedbyabridge and [ profile] vintage_belle for looking this over and catching all my stupid typos. Oh, and also for not making me feel like a horrible writer :Db

Heartbreaker )
