In other news, [livejournal.com profile] jokersama is a filthy pornmonger who during her Australian vacation has managed to get me reading RPS fanfic. (That's "real person slash" to the uninitiated.)


(The pairing, for the curious, is Simon Amstell [of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and the dude mimsily drinking a pint in my icon] and Noel Fielding [of The Mighty Boosh]. Basically, Simon is a bitchy, acerbic game show host, and Noel is a silly comedian with fabulous hair who has been on Simon's show both as guest and as guest team leader. OMGTHEIRLUVISSOBRITISH.)

In yet other news, I just realized that my LJ has been around for over five years. It feels strange to have been posting for that long...I wonder how many words that would add up to. Anyway, now I feel sorry I didn't notice at the time, or I would have celebrated on my LJ.

Anyway, it's time for me to start preparing to teach. THEN THE WEEKEND, FINALLY...WATCH OUT ATELIER IRIS HERE I COME

...so, memeage.

This is one of those "assign a pairing to each number, then answer questions about each number" memes, so here's the list:

1. Tatsuya/Jun (Persona 2: Innocent Sin)
2. Doctor/Rose (Doctor Who)
3. Nathan/Peter (Heroes)
4. Buffy/Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
5. Angel/Cordelia (Angel)
6. Katsuya/Maya (Persona 2: Eternal Punishment)

7. Veronica/Logan (Veronica Mars)
8. Anya/Giles (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
9. Wesley/Lilah (Angel)

10. Tru/Harrison (Tru Calling)
11. Scott/Emma (X-Men)
12. Squall/Rinoa (Final Fantasy VIII)

13. Akihiko/Junpei (Persona 3)
14. Chase/Victor (Runaways)

(If you're planning on doing this meme, make your own list before you click on the cut and get spoiled for the questions.)

Questions and answers )

Ahahaha, this bit of fucked-upness (courtesy of Neil Gaiman) is worth a read, despite its author's wanky tone. I have to say, though, that I called the twist in this article on the first page - clearly I spend too much time on fandom_wank. XD

On the plus side I finally get to use this icon. :D

Also, the Heroes Slash Manual is kind of awesome, and I wish I had $8400 so I could buy the newly Vatican-released Knights Templar trial papers (from [livejournal.com profile] moonsheen).

And because I can't go an entire post without talking about videogames, Gamers was out of Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions. Weo. Also, I downloaded the demo of the new PS3 Conan game and it kinda sucks - I was hoping for something along the lines of Heavenly Sword with bigger thews, and it kind of is that but with worse control and uglier graphics. D:

Edit: Apparently I am indeed prescient - it just showed up ON fandom_wank, with a lot more details.

I had forgotten those four random zombies in part 1 of JoJo named Bonham, Page, Plant, and Jones. Led Zeppeli Zeppelin FTW!

Also, while I'm on the subject of JoJo (actually when am I ever not?), check out [livejournal.com profile] jokersama's post of music referenced in JoJo and [livejournal.com profile] angrybabble's post of more JoJo music. Even if you've already got all the music, this should give you a good idea of what a geeky music freak Hirohiko Araki is. XD

Also, I read most of Shakespeare's (and Fletcher's, I guess) Two Noble Kinsmen last night for class today. And wow, was it gay.

My thoughts )

...wow, wearing my Brokeback Chaucer shirt was incredibly appropriate for discussion of this play. :D

Today it literally took me about two minutes to do the People crossword. Seriously, SO EASY.

Also, in breaking news, I HATE BIRDS. I went downtown to pick up some bubble mailers (to send BPAL) and pop, and halfway home a bird crapped on my head. And I'd just taken a shower, too, which meant I had to wash my hair twice in two hours which I'm fairly certain means I will have split ends all to hell tomorrow.

I also drew a picture during my breaks from reading Aurora Leigh. If you're in the mood for some Persona fanart, look no further. (For once it doesn't look like ass!)

...Those of you who remember What is Silent Hill? (that I posted earlier) may enjoy this (for SH fans) and this (for JoJo fans).

And finally, something that managed to traumatize even me: a horrific Harry Potter slash fancomic (NOT WORKSAFE - from [livejournal.com profile] jokersama, who else?), featuring crossdressing!Harry, crossdressing!Snape, and voyeur!Lupin, AUGH.

The sucky thing about having people visit when you're finally used to living on your own? Because then you get used to having other people around again, and then they leave and you're all, "well, GREAT. Now I'm lonely. >_<"

Anyway, my folks left today. In order to distract myself, I gave the "twelve characters" meme another try (LJ ate the first one). So, here goes.

First, write down the names of 12 characters. Then read and answer the questions.
You can't look at the questions (or click on the cut) until you write down the 12 characters you're going to use.

My picks:
1. Cliff Fittir (Star Ocean Till the End of Time)
2. Ginji Amano (GetBackers)
3. Tatsuya Suou (Persona 2)
4. Flonne (Disgaea)
5. Maya Amano (Persona 2)
6. Anya (Buffy)
7. Jun Kurosu (Persona 2)
8. Katsuya Suou (Persona 2)
9. Jack Russell (Radiata Stories)
10. Cordelia Chase (Buffy/Angel)
11. Lilah Morgan (Angel)
12. Ban Mido (GetBackers)

And my answers )

In other retarded fannish news, I finally watched Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Goddammit, Squeenix, you should have at least bought me dinner first so that I could respect myself in the morning. I feel so...used.

More specific impressions, with spoilers )

Anyway, some links that are appropriate to go along with the above review - a delightful movie poster for Advent Children, and a set of parody subtitles for AC as well. (Both are from the delightful [livejournal.com profile] jokersama.)

Welp, today was kind of a wash academically. For my Romantic Lit class this morning, we had to read Northanger Abbey, Blue-Beard (a Gothic play), both versions of Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", and Coleridge's "Christabel". I got through all of it but Christabel, because I ran out of time and I'd read it and "Mariner" before (I wanted to focus on the ones that I hadn't read before). But guess what the professor decided to spend quite a bit of time talking about, followed by calling on those who hadn't contributed? So I pulled some BS out of my ass and hope that it sounded halfway intelligible (I think she bought it). Still, I worry.

On the other hand, in my Chaucer class today I was not only fully prepared, having done all the reading, but actually spoke in class! Several times! (Wooo, go me!) And the things I said were even marginally insightful! Of course, it helped that for a large portion of that time we were talking about homoerotic subtext in the Knight's Tale, because (as befitting someone who lists "literary slash" as an LJ interest) I can find gay subtext in everything from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie.

(And yes, Poirot and Hastings are totally getting it on, as distasteful as I find the concept of Poirot getting it on with ANYONE.)

More about Radiata Stories, if I haven't bored the hell out of you yet - mild spoilers when talking about story characters )

Let's Positive Linking!
- You can't catch me, I'm the Ninjabread Man! (From [livejournal.com profile] shinkun.) OMG MUST GET
- Nightmare City. ...I have no words.
- I thought spending the last couple of days on GameFAQs message boards had taken away all my faith in humanity. But no, then I had to go on the IMDb message board for The Constant Gardener and read arguments about why Rachel Weisz flossed her ass with a towel in a five-second scene. XD
- Some AWESOME street art. (From [livejournal.com profile] jantalaimon [livejournal.com profile] firestorm717. It's not my fault, they both have Crane icons!)
- Digital Devil Saga 2 has a soundtrack as a preorder bonus. DAMN J00 ATLUS T_T

Also, a news article from here; the IMDb news rotates daily, so I'm posting a copy of the article in the cut.

Just finished watching the Rhapsodia trailer at Suikox.com. And all I have to say is...holy shit, this looks like it might be the best Suikoden game EVAR. With a shit-ton of returning characters, SRPG gameplay and even goat-people, how can this game not be good? (Now let's just hope it has the Iron Chef cooking contest from SuikoII!)

And dude, the trailer ends with Brandeau, Kika and Edgar getting ready for the big fight in which Edgar dies and passes on the Rune of Punishment to Brandeau. :D :D :D

Also, Suikoden V has been announced. With an astonishingly feminine-looking male protagonist, dressed in an off-the-shoulders outfit. Quelle surprise. Ah, Konami, it's nice to know there are constants in life: water will always be wet, the IRS will always insist on its pound of flesh, and Suikoden protagonists will always be gay.

Edit: And, in case you've forgotten, Serenity (aka The Firefly Movie) is coming out at the end of the month. And I know you're all going to see it, right? RIGHT? T_T
