EnglishSpeaking! Shampoo from Ranma 1/2, honestly.

She's portrayed as energetic, flirtatious, and posessing of the weird mix of clingy and poly that I can deal with.

Also, as being rather sensual and catlike, in a good way. Not just in terms of, well, I'd tell you to get your minds out the the gutter IF I weren't a hypocrite; but also she's PORTRAYED as foodie with a fondness for touching, being touched, perfume and the like.


Tomorrow on www.loveismyweapon.com is Random Fandom Wednesday.

Be very afraid, Bliss Stage fans.

I go on something resembling a Date today. Wish me luck.

And good afternoon.
l_the_fangirl: (Authority Figure)
Chessy asked me to write something about being a Bliss Stage Authority Figure. (Icon related).

So I thought about it, and here's what I wrote.

Write something in the Bliss Stage... universe is too strong; symbol set and situation?... about being the Authority, the last waking adult in the world, leading children and teenagers to war against literal Nightmares with love as their weapon. Then ask me to write a story, about whatever you want, and I will reciprocate.

Only What Is Freely Offered
Fandom: Bliss Stage
Pairings: LOLWHUT. Original characters, you wouldn't care.
Tags: Sex, Dreams, Mania
Warnings: Depicts mania and implies a sexual relationship between me, at 24, and and someone else, at 17. Iffn ya'll care. That person exists. I don't think she'd mind being in this, but... names changed to protect the Innocent Sweetheart.

Suuchan? I... think I'm coming down... )
l_the_fangirl: (You're Idiots But I Love You)

I blame http://tigerbunny-db.livejournal.com/41783.html - he blames me.


You wanna play? Here are the rules. )

Haruhi Fujioka

Pilot - Rising Hero
From Ouran High School Host Club
Honest without realizing how honest she is, kind without realizing how kind she is, oblivious to how much she is loved and cherished (for many different values of loved), Haruhi (no, not THAT Haruhi) was the emotional center of the Host Club and would likewise be the heroic heart of a Bliss Stage game.

("I'm just doing what any decent person would do," Haruhi said.
Derek blinked. "Do you know how rare decent people are, post-Bliss?")

Age: 16. Taking her from her first appearance.

Ryouga Hibiki

Anchor - Comforting, or possibly Driven
From Ranma Nibun No Ichi 1/2
Always more than willing to help his unrequited love (in Akane)... and more than willing to bury his misgivings about his rival (in Ranma) if he feels or his love convinces him that it's in her best interest. Always there with a comforting word, with training, with re-assurances, Ryoga will sacrifice all of himself for his love... if you can't stop him from doing so.

And don't get him mad. Ever.

("I... I can't do it!" Sara wailed. "My... my rapier can't deflect it, I... I can't..."
Privately, Ryouga thought, FUCK Keenan and FUCK the Witty Rapier, but only for a second. He sighed, and with a crank of a dial, reinforced the signal. "You can do it, Sara," he said, only a little sadly. "I l... Keenan loves you, and I trust you.")

Age: Not given, but likely 15-16. From the beginning of his story arc.

Alexander Luthor

Authority Figure
From Justice League (Unlimited)
The aliens... interrupted his business, to be sure, but he wasn't exactly SURPRISED by the invasion, just... by the tactics involved. Lex was always a believer in the power of the human spirit, and rather suspicious of anything Other. He's broadminded enough when it comes to non-Americans - he is, after all, originally of African decent (at least the JL/U version), but he has ISSUES with things not Human. Not to mention a Crazy Prepared paranoid streak. When the Bliss hit, his reaction was "Ah, attack through fatigue and/or dreams. Solution; my stasis/rejeuvenation chamber." When he had an alien brain, his reaction, likewise, was "Perhaps my dream scanning equipment would work well with this." It's good to be the CEO.

Age: Middle aged. Prior to meeting Superman, as he doesn't exist in this setting.

Hanako Ikezawa

Supporting Staff
From Katawa Shoujo
Horribly burned in an alien attack (Noxious Smokes and Fiery Rays, doncha know) that took out what family she had left - an attack that, perversely, she blames herself for - poor Hanako has managed to convince herself that she is an ugly person and a victim of circumstance, that no one would ever love her, and so she quietly cooks, cleans, and sorts through files, her head held low.

She is mistaken, of course. She is beautiful, and kind, and good, and the burns on her face are nowhere near as ugly as the rest of the world, let alone the aliens. If you could bring her out of her shell, then any kindness you could show her - kindness she needs - she would reward you for a thousandfold.

Age: High School age, and apparently a sophomore in the Japanese system. 15-16 is my guess. Prior to meeting Hisao.
l_the_fangirl: (Default)
"You may not all be aware of how the war started - although you are all bright lads, let me reassure you, and I know that young Kent already surmised what I am about to tell you - but it began when those green crystals began to grow on our planet.

Naturally, my corporation - my company, excuse me - decided to analyze the crystals. We were, after all, specialists in cutting edge technology of all kinds, and this unique new mineral had some intriguing properties.

Which saved me, and possibly the rest of us, because we had the first warning of what the Bliss was when an ENTIRE LexCorp high energy physics lab fell asleep on their feet. Someone ran a current through the damn things while they were in a liquid solution, and a wave of energy overwhelmed their minds.

You have all had parents Bliss. It's not a pretty sight, I must admit. But I took it in stride, and realized these crystals for what they were; an attack, and a subtle one, playing on the greed of humanity - greed I nearly succumbed to myself. So I was ready.

I had a stasis device, prepared for such an emergency... ah, yes, Wayne, I see by your expression you approve. And when the aliens landed after their alpha strike, I stole the parts I needed to counter-attack, with the help of some of you who are still here... and some that died or Blissed so that we would continue.

I realized that I could not use our weapon - the Numina Inverter - myself, as it required it's, ah, pilot to sleep; so I did my best to secure the aid of the... most worthy. The strongest child survivors, in body and mind and most of all in spirit.

Our first pilots were Bruce Wayne, Kyle Rayner, and Oliver Queen. Of them, Bruce is still fighting, Kyle has stepped down to advise and Anchor Stewart, and... Queen did what he had to for the rest of us. They were the first League.

The machine - the Numina Inversion Device - the ALIEN Numina Inversion Machine - translates you into the realm where the aliens are from, where they are more vulnerable to attack. By calling on the dream imagery you associate with those you love, you can fashion weaponry. Love is, literally, your weapon. And Trust - specifically trust in your Anchors, your navigators and often your lovers (oh, don't give me that look, Miss Anders, we ALL know how you feel about Dick even if you don't) is your armor.

Though even I was a little stunned to see Wayne, Rayner and Queen literally become superheroes - the Batman, the Green Lantern, and the Green Arrow.

This is how it stands. We are fighting a war for humanity.

Clark, you will be anchored by Lois. John, you will become the new Green Lantern as Rayner Anchors you. Wally, of the people in whom you've shown interest, Linda is the most level-headed. Coraline, you and Grayson will be paired. Diana - your rapport with Minnie is cause for her to Anchor.

You will become our superheroes.

Love is your weapon.
Trust is your armor.
And against these nightmares?
Alexander Luthor will. Not. Sleep."

Discuss. :D

KaTAwa, not KaWAta. KaTAwa.

Played to all of the Good Endings in act 1, and am now adding Shizune to the list of people I instantly fell in love with in this game, not to say that I disLIKE any of the others.

...I have been thinking entirely too hard about this, and, well, triggery cut-rant is triggery.

TL;DR is that this game is awesum!!1! and thought-provoking and you should play it. )

Off to class. More about internet software applications and thier limitations today. I'll be online.
l_the_fangirl: (awww)
Kawata is apparently not a nice word in Japanese - something like "Cripple" or "Retard" or both. Meaning that Kawata Shoujo doesn't have the nice translation of "Disabled Girls" provided with it - it means something more like "Gimped Chicks." With a name like that, and the fact that it's by Anonymous 4-Chan Four Leaf Studios, you might be forgiven for running away on a pogo stick.

Kawata Shoujo turned out, however, to be a wonderful, beautiful game about coming to terms with disabilities and young love.

I fell in love with Rin, a mercurial, probably aspie, artist. Did I mention she has no arms, and painted a mural with her feet?

I did, not just my character. Play this. It's sensitive, well written, and highly recommended.


In less OMGsqueee~ news, hexadecamal math in class today, oy gevalt... still a lot simpler then advanced Algebra, and managable, and interesting.
l_the_fangirl: (Default)
Pic unrelated. Sort of.

Veronica called me. Very nice convo - she's calling me tonight. Hoping to see her in the week she's recovering, it being my spring break and all. I'll see if she can pledge some financial assistance in that: I'm saving up myself.

I do rather like St. Valentine's day (and the story of St. Valentine), so long as you remember not to make it more serious or complicated than it is. Just a day to honor romantic love - not OMG MUST BUY CHOCOLATES AND ROSES AS DRAGONFODDER. I understand the reason why it's such a hated holiday, though - my friend Li-Chi calls it Singles Awareness Day for a reason, and the commercialism made of it makes me gag. But I like the reminder to connect and re-connect the holiday provides.

I now have a writerly urge, and want to do comic book scripts for a lighthearted Action/Romance/Comedy thing I'm calling Neon Veda Bodhisattva, at the mo, because the basic idea in my head was "like Evangelion off crack."

If you don't care about Neon Veda, then why click the link? )

In other news, Dad is going to New Orleans tomorra night on Serious Business. I am envious. Chocolatefrapp, if you can reccommend him a good restaurant, please do.

And how was your St. Vals, everyone?
l_the_fangirl: (Harry/Ginny)
...in two weeks, and will be laid up a week after that in the hospital, recovering.

Major back surgery. Ouch.

I send her my love, of course (Veronica being, among other things, my girlfriend - for those tuning in late) and I'm going to do my best to get down to her neck of the woods in Encinitas afterwards.

Wish us luck...

Well crap.

... sacred cows killed. This is good.

I think I will have to watch this now.


Also: Bliss Stage = Fun. Exalted = Also Fun. Having Games to run = Very Fun.

I may be doing a "I Fixed Your Star Wars Setting" game with Fate 3.0 (with pulpy Stunts and Mysteries re-intepreted as The Force). In short, "Jedi Knights Han Solo and Malcom Reynolds must fight the Sith... and, regrettably, those in the Republic that would make it an Empire." (I steal from the best, The Tall Man.)
l_the_fangirl: (Default)
So, not a girlfriend. Still, Sharon was nice enough to say so without mortifying the both of us.

Bliss Stage tonight, IRL, Eudemonia. 5:00? That's when I show.

Actual play report.

Cut for Bliss Stage, naked Lloyd, and 'practical sex ed classes' )

Chessy ruled: Trauma relief for Lloyd. His personal problems, such as being a manipulative SOB, are going to bite him on the ass some day...

Manipulative, egotistic, arrogant, aggressive, near-megalomanical SOB, thank you very much . . . --SoylentWhite

That too. - EB

A letter from the Bliss Stage game I just played today.

Dear Jason,

You should have just been asked to tutor Jessica. Given that the only real alternative is Julian, I appeal to your sense to accept the task. If that fails, consider that I will bash your head in if you don't accept, and I'm sure the right choice will become clear. Abuse the trust I have given you, and I'll rip your balls off, so be polite and gentle, and make sure she *likes* it.


P.S. Not kidding about the 'balls' part. Seriously.
l_the_fangirl: (Bliss Stage)
Wonderful Bliss Stage game today, at www.toothycat.net/wiki/wiki.pl?BlissStage. We had to use the ToothyChat main channel, which I sincerely hope we WON'T have to do again - I just hope I can get the channel working on a Job Corps computer. Experimenting.

If you care about Bliss Stage, click the link. Otherwise, don't blame me. )

Hoping I'll get to talk with Acchan a little more today, too.

School again tomorrow. Sandwich portion of the curriculum, I think.

Class was fun today - we're starting a courseload on meat fabrication, prep and cookery. We made a cure for a pork loin, which is brining overnight as we speak.

Yesterday, took a personal day so I could do my catering gig @ a party in San Jose's museum of art. Mostly we assembled appetizers. ...I had to dot a coin-sized corn pudding with chili cream sauce and a little "cilantro pearl," an impractical beautiful ball of cilantro in a small sphere held together with savory jelly.

(Should Be A Movie) trailer script for Kare Kano below the cut.


She had a 'perfect' life... until he came along and taught her that perfection wasn't everything. )

This one is made all the sweeter with the existences of a secret very overt admirer at my school. Hee.

Try to guess next week's with only this tagline:

"Only he has the guts to woo beautiful monsters and endure terrible princesses."
l_the_fangirl: (Default)
Sweet fucking Christ being paradropped in on Captain Planet's back, watch WALL-e!

It smacks you in the face with it's message of good stewardship in the earth and the dangers of conformity, but Christ, they do it so well I don't care. And it needed to be said, in this way, anyway.

Saying that it's essentially a romance shouldn't, I hope, be a spoiler. EVE is a wonderful foil for WALL-e, and manages to be more expressive than most actors with a vocabulary limited to:

- "Directive!"
- "Classified."
- "Designation?"
- "EVE."
- "WALL-E!!"
- ...and a Big "NOOOO~!"

And, yes, EVE is the aforementioned tsundere with a BFG 9000.

Spoilers )

Wow, wow. Just wow. I cannot recommend this film highly enough. Okay, so it's about as subtle as a plasma cannon to the gonads, but it's handled very well.
l_the_fangirl: (Default)
What is it that you're really looking for?
Is trying to find it really such a chore?
It isn't in your desk and, it isn't in your bag and...
What on earth could you possibly be looking for?

Kare Kano ending theme, of course. More later when I find my notes.
