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.

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) )

Title: Heartbreaker
Fandom: Enjin Sentai Go-Onger
Characters: Everyone
Word Count: 1,241

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

Hi! I'm back from Australia, but in general very busy and also feeling like a slug. So, to all my kanjipocalypse peeps: I'M SORRY FOR LETTING YOU DOWN. This week I will start putting them up again, okay? PLEASE FORGIVE ME. I just... need some time to be a slug, it seems.

Also! I went to see the KR/Gosei movie, which was awesome, and I ended up taking 14 pages of notes! I tried to write (in colored pen) when something was illegible what I had meant, but... well, you know. Comprehensive thoughts are on the last page. Spoilers, obviously, and image-heavy. )

Woo, all Hesiei Riders: watched! I feel... well actually, like a bit of a layabout, but thank you for asking. And, in accordance with Fandom Law, I have drawn my commemorative picture featuring all the riders. I have received glowing praise such as "his head is really big" and "he's kind of lopsided"! Coming soon to a pixiv near you.

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!

As for the KanKen... I'm honestly not sure. I'm getting like 80s and 90s in certain sections and 50s in others (you need a 70 to pass), and of course the most important section is the hardest/my worst. We shall see how it goes. And then afterward we will go see Iron Man 2 :D

In other kanji news, I've decided to do a project for the Kanjipocalypse, so, watch this space!

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!

Title: Zankan (残寒)
Fandom: Yamada Tarou Monogatari (JDrama)
Characters: Mimura Takuya, Yamada Tarou, Ikegami Takako, Mimura Seiichi, Isogai, Various Yamadas, OFC
Word Count: 1,279
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: YamaTaro belongs to TBS and Ai Morinaga, not me.
Summary: It's right, or it's wrong, or maybe it's both or neither. Tarou/Takuya, Takuya/OFC
Author's Notes: I've had this written for at least 6 months, but I haven't posted it because I really have no idea if this makes any sense at all, particularly due to my apparent inability to tell a story in a linear fashion. [livejournal.com profile] vintage_belle suggests it may need a "sequel" from Tarou's point of view, but, I guess we'll see.
