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.

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

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.

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" ([livejournal.com profile] estirose) to some elaborate crossover scenario requiring Plot Devices to even get the characters in the same millennium (...[livejournal.com 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.

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 [livejournal.com profile] viridian_blue5, who requested "Hiroto, Chocolate." It's only kind of related, but *shrugs* SPECIAL THANKS TO [personal profile] defeatedbyabridge and [livejournal.com 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 )
capncosmo: Masumi being exploded (Masumi Explodes)
In case you hadn't heard, the Japanese government has just made the decision to include 196* new characters in the the standard Everyday Use (常用) Kanji List. Before you go off crying about how horrible they are, however, let me tell you that this is not as bad as it sounds. Why? Because everyone uses all of these kanji anyway. The only things bound by the Joyo kanji are the government and NHK, so this will actually help you in interacting with the real world.

"But but," you say, "how on Earth am I going to get through all these?" Simple: you're going to do 2 a day, 14 a week, for 14 weeks. With me, until early October, at which point we will dance a dance of joy and exclaim our mastery. To give you an idea of easy we will actually be taking it: I do 8 or 16 kanji a day 5 days a week now. Which is why I am only adding 2 more :D

What will be here:

  1. That day's kanji - radical, stroke order, meaning, all that jazz

  2. Jukugo - words that day's kanji appears in

  3. Mini-quiz - on the previous day's kanji

  4. Sunday every other week: One of the 7 new ateji

  5. Saturday: Quiz on that week's kanji



What you need to do:

  1. Set aside 10 minutes to read through the post.

  2. Take the mini-quiz (answers will be available)

  3. Practice that day's kanji



How much practice? Up to you. I usually do 10x for each reading and add more later for the readings that didn't stick. You can find kanji practice paper here, or you could use graph paper, or you could make your own, or you could care less about the little boxes.

Simple! I am going to do all the prep work for you, so you just need to put it in your brain! And since there are only two a day, if you miss a day you can do 4 the next day easily.


So, if you're interested, meet me back here tomorrow for week 1! Tell all your friends! And pwn the new characters come this October :D


*-ish. There are also 7 new ateji, plus several kanji with readings be added. But 5 are being deleted!

I am now going to be better at writing about things right after I see/read them. Because I usually have a lot more to say then. And I want to write things, just... Like, I tried to write a Hurricanger fic but it died a horrible death, and I'm not typing my Shinken stuff just to have it sit there unloved, so. If I have to talk into the vacuum, about books no one else has read/cares about it shall be!

Hi, V6 friends! I bet a lot of you wonder why you keep me on your friends lists. Maybe this could be part of the reason? I'm working on all of "READY?," but first I have to handle the singles, so. (Except "way of life"? I don't have that single, so.)

A third post!? And at a time when I am super busy and therefore should probably not be nudging this particular nugget of Cesium with my wet hands? Well, I'm kind of upset and antsy at the moment, and as I've said before, do your worst! And hey, even I'm not always right, so :D

THIS ESSAY IS NOT ABOUT HOW SEXIST I THINK SHINKENGER IS AND HOW IF YOU LIKE MAKO YOU SHOULD JUST GO FIND AN ABUSIVE HUSBAND AND BE BAREFOOT IN THE KITCHEN WHILE HE BEATS YOU. OR WHATEVER PEOPLE THINK I HAVE WISHED UPON THEM IN THE PAST. In fact, this essay isn't really even *about* Mako, except how it is.

I also watched Mulan in Mandarin in this weekend, and dudes! I could understand very short sentences!! I guess I am not completely hopeless in Chinese after all :Db

I also WILL at SOME POINT type up all the V6 lyrics translations I've been doing in preparation for READY?. So, you know, hold me to that.

In other news, have been thinking about moving to DW... we'll see.

EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] megthelegend wrote me a really awesome and hilarious Carranger fic! Go read it!!
capncosmo: Clueless (Default)
Lisa really wanted to see this, and I did too, so.

I'm warning you, though, you'll probably be disappointed. )


In other news, I very much enjoyed Arashi on Utaban tonight. Not least because:

Palm reader guy: Sakurai-san, Ninomiya-san, you have this one line (blah blah). What's odd is that I mostly see this in the 2-choume crowd, like Haruna Ai, Ikko, and Osugi and Piko.
Nakai: Now that you mention it...
Nino and Sho: No no no no no.

If even Nakai is shipping you, you guys....


And I suppose I will end with this.

Me: *finishes book cover for yaoi doujin* Yay!
Takano-sensei: What's that you've got there. Oh wow, that's pretty.
Me: Thank you. I made it from a misprinted worksheet.
Takano-sensei: What kind of book is that?
Me: ...
Takano-sensei: Is it an English book?
Me: No, it's in Japanese.
Takano-sensei: Wow, you're so awesome.
Me: No, no, I run into kanji I can't read a lot.
Me (in my head): SAFE.

Two pictures!

Naturally, it was kind of awkward when my co-worker asked to see my drawings and I realized I only had pictures of poly wedding ceremonies. I HOPE YOU APPRECIATE IT, YOU GUYS.

Dear Toei,

You couldn't release the Shinkenger movie on DVD two weeks earlier? It's really cruel of you to leave us in limbo like this :/

No love,

So in conclusion:

Sensei: ???
Lisa: You don't have to tell her I said that.

I also went to Nagano this weekend, which means ONE PREFECTURE LEFT. I'm excited. Especially because I will get to LOOK UP AND SEE MOUNT FUJI.

And ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Oh, yeah, I bought the Shinken photobook/Double Character book because I am WEAK. (More because I want Hero/Heroine Vision and I can never find it so I buy other things to pull me out of my depression). Does anyone know if they've been translated? Because man, there are some short interviews at the back that would take me ten second and would bring the lolz. (Although, Shogo's handwriting is kind of illegible maybe I should reconsider that)


Yay Asexual fandom!


And Hello, New V6 friends! I would make cheesy V6 jokes since I just went to Nagano, but I kind of used them all while I was up there (^^;)

I want you to know, this totally counts for 2009, I was just momentarily distracted from *posting* it by all the sequins. Then again, it just barely counts, so that's why it's all so short and lame I am never asking for interesting prompts again *weeps*

Summary: Ryuunosuke makes sure Takeru evacuates Hoth
Author's Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] kades905, who requested "Ryuunosuke from Shinkenger has to escape Echo Base when the Empire attacks.." Clearly he forgot to take into account that it's called Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. Like, can a prompt *be* any easier?

And finally, for [livejournal.com profile] beckerbell... This is one of those things that is a great *concept* but not such a great fic. Here's a snippet anyway:

Those stories where you have to be really careful what you ask for, else the Genie/Giant Fish/etc. follows the letter of your wish, not the spirit of it.

For [livejournal.com profile] itsbuttery, who requested "The two numbers brave the minefield once again only to encounter yet another minefield... in-laws.." I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY *weeps*
