...LOL OH GOSH, GUYS, I am SUCH a geek--look--look at what I did today:

...I made a few more Aangs, but the rest of the batch came out shaped as...stars, kitties, and elephants. The latter of which shall be frosted pink. |D ...And, no attention to the shot of my foot in the corner...

That said, I have NOT seen the A:TLA movie yet, so...I can't say anything RE: that yet. But soon...!

I downloaded this huge-ass file of screen caps of Tales of Vesperia ~First Strike~ and I’m not even very far into them yet but HOLY BACKFLIPPING ELIJAHBUGS I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY HOT LITTLE HANDS ON THIS MOVIE. There’s already been some Back to Back Badassery from our boys, and at the point where I’m at there’s what looks to be a BAR FIGHT, which Yuri seems to have started (OF COURSE, because he is one Grade-A instigator |D) and Flynn QUITE FIRMLY finishes and alsdkfjALKJFLSKDJF; AHAHAHAHA I LOVE IT ALREADY. X’DDDDD

…Also, Yuri is insanely cute/pretty/hot/moé. But I knew this already. |D

…And this talk of ToV reminds me of this, which I KNOW I mentioned and meant to post…forever ago actually, but. I don’t have ALL the quotes I want for it yet, but I do have some. I’ll get the rest on my second play-through. |D;

...SO, I’ve decided that really, Tales of Vesperia is all about ALIGNMENTS.

D&D Alignments as seen in Tales of Vesperia! )

EDIT: I have it from reliable sources (a couple of them, actually) that the movie...sort of RUINS EVERYTHING and pays NO attention to all sorts of canon things and just...all-around FAILS, REALLY, so...IDK if I'm gonna watch it anymore....though the BAR FIGHT thing still totally cracks me up and YEAH I'll...probably end up watching it anyway and then HATING MYSELF AND THE PRODUCERS/SCREENWRITER(S) AND JUST THE WORLD IN GENERAL for a while afterward...

Though, my one issue is...perhaps predictably, The Romances. TEAL DEER RAMBLING~ )

ALSO Library Story of the Day is from yesterday, and it was basically just a WTF. I had to play 20 Questions with a patron after I found him his book. As I was turning to go, he got all quietly intense, and was all, "So how long have you been working here? Do you work here full-time? Are you looking for another part-time job, then? Do you have a degree in library-work? Where did you go to college? Where's that?" And introduced himself and went for the handshake which I HATE I FREAKING HATE SHAKING RANDOM PEOPLES' HANDS, AUGH. And I just sort of...answered his questions quickly but politely and FLED back to the desk, because he was at least my dad's age and sorta creepy and. I wanted the desk between us. And George nearby, just in case he was some sort of crazy. Because WTF I DON'T KNOW YOU STOP BEING NOSY MY LIFE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS AND 'NOT INTERESTED' DOES NOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE MY FEELINGS ON THIS SITUATION. But he wasn't done yet--when he got up to the desk to check out his book, there was another flurry of questions. ("So have you lived in Charlotte long? Where are you going when you go back to library school? Do your parents live down here? Do you have a roommate, then?") And once again I answered as vaguely but politely as I could and checked his book out VERY fast and tried not to give in and just SNAP at him. And I'm not blonde anymore, so that isn't an excuse. But. Maybe I really DO have to stop wearing the shirt I wore yesterday...because whenever I do, this sort of thing tends to happen, which I still do not understand because my chest is Really Not Very Impressive. -_-;;;

So here's the deal.

I've been on such a comic book kick lately, I decided that REALLY want to cosplay SOMEONE for one of them, and since I'm currently blonde, it's prettymuch either Emma Frost or Super Girl, or Wonder Girl I guess, since Black Canary, Layla Miller, and Boom Boom are sorta obscure and I hate Ms. Marvel's costume. I guess there's Enchantress too, but again, probably too obscure, plus her hair would be a PAIN. OH there's Power Girl too, but...I am not really a fan of the "swimsuit bottomed" costumes, and my hair's too long anyway. Though the LOL BOOBWINDOW would ALMOST be worth it. |D BUT ANYWAY that bitch Emma Frost is probably my favourite of these anyway SO. Having an excuse to be a bitch and wear silver/white lipstick FTW. :Db

And while "crossplay" works just fine for plenty of anime characters since a lot of the guys are pretty girly-looking anyway, it doesn't work so well in the DC/Marvel comicsverses, since almost ALL the dudes are Very Muscular Manly-Looking Men, which I could not and certainly do not want to pass for. :|

...But then I thought, oh hey, I could be girl!Robin (a la Stephanie Brown, not Carrie Kelly), though she's a little obscure too. So yeah, I'm not sure anymore, since Batman is my fave superhero aside from Deadpool and there'd be no midriff-baring required and I could quite possibly make it myself which = more awesome points (since it'd be accurate) & LOADS more fun. =\ ...But Emma Frost is WAY more badass...

WELL CLEARLY there is only one possible thing to do here--SEEK THE ADVICE OF MY FRIENDS. |D F-LIST (and other people) DON'T FAIL ME NOW.

[Poll #1463651]

...I guess a big part of what it comes down to is The Classic Question: Marvel or DC?

...It really was late, and I kinda thought it needed to be done.

…And this drabble shows quite clearly just how much of a geek I am. Yay, science! XD

...Might be a bit disjointed. I have a headache.

What's Between Us )

I'm counting on you guys to let me know if I screwed up with this. XD Headache --> not as thorough of a proofread as I usually do.
