Since you guys seemed more interested in learning Norse, we'll go focus on a bit of Norse too. So let's go with the beginning, literally the beginning. Creation myth!

Warnings and triggers: A bit of gore and gratuitous violence, sweaty armpits, and cows with a licking fetish.

The original Song of Ice and Fire )

First things first. I revamped my domain despite the fact I haven't worked in any sites forever. Mostly because it had been so long with the same layout and most images were broken and that's sad. So here it is, a little dull but at least it's clean and a fairly good practice to some CSS3.

If I ever get less lazier, I'll make the avatar-ish image in the sidebar a random image of fandoms I like. And maybe make skins in different colors. But so far it's enough as it is.

Fandom-wise, I haven't been up to a lot of stuff. I've kind of been really active on plurk but mostly because a lot of friends from the RP are over there. I've been limiting my time on Tumblr because it's a fucking black hole for visual magpies, but I still check the dash and update my blogs at least twice a day.

New anime season, other shit I've watched, me failing as gamer forever )

ETA: I did buy a HDD in the end. It's a 1TB electric blue WD which I named TARDIS.

In my eternal search for well-written mythology butchery fiction, I might have stumbled into what might possibly become this subgenre's very own Twilight. Just the description really, really, REALLY annoys me in several areas.

→ They paid HOW MUCH for this?! To a newbie, no less. Man, either this woman writes like a god, or it's very Meyer-esque with Romeo-and-Juliet shit they recognize it's automatic cash cow. I lean to the latter, knowing the YA industry.

→ The Iliad in High School. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN.

→ Making a novel about a reincarnation of Paris/Helen, which is just terrible in general.

This then begs the unfortunate question: should she be with the boy she loves even if it means endangering the rest of the world? LET ME GUESS, IT'S GOING TO BE THE CLAMP WAY, ISN'T IT? Instant resolve not to read this ever.

pitched it as "a Percy Jackson for teenage girls"

...........................there is SO much wrong in this sentence.

Noonononono. No, dammit. You know what is Percy Jackson for teenage girls? IT'S PERCY JACKSON ITSELF, YOU ASSHATS!! Titular boy aside, this series is filled with amazing and BAMF teen girls to look upon! And there's a balanced male-female hero ratio, so there are many to choose from. And even more amazing? Many of them get love lives too! So being in wars and dating isn't mutually exclusive, and they don't get to risk the world for Soulmate Hottie like this Helen chick who just sounds kinda psychotic if you ask me.

So, FMA chapter 104 camprip.

OH SHIT SON. WHAT.

I believe this chapter is better read with The End of Evangelion's Komm, Süsser Tod as BGM. Or maybe it's me being silly.

Coherent thoughts when there's a readable translation.

...after reading/watching a Let's Play of Persona 3 during a couple of slow days. Unpopular opinions 'R us!

Not bashing anything, but there's a lot of boggling thoughts. And some P3 spoilers. Watch SMT purists roll their eyes at me! :o )

Tomorrow I'll make a real post, I hope.

The following story happened in a fraction of a second. My uncle brought me to school on car, and as usual I was glancing at crap at the copilot's seat. Nothing odd right there.

Then my eyes wander to a tiny street crossing the one we were driving by, one I don't usually go through. I noticed that, in a wall, someone wrote "Joker" in black spray. That's not necessarily creepy.

No, the weird part was that this random guy was walking down the street, towards the large one we were in. The guy was young, with blond, curly hair -not too short.

From far away, that dude looked a bit like Heath Ledger.

...The coincidence is so creepy I'm not even sure I didn't hallucinate part of (or the entirety of) it.
