Pffffft. We all know I've been playing SS in all my spare time.
Seriously though, it has been rather busy. Monday I don't even remember, Tuesday we went to Toco Hills to finish buying stuff for Passover (OMB We're less than 2 weeks away!) and got me some scrub pants to go with the outfit, Wednesday was my Psych appointment and I was scrambling to finish my work, Thursday we finished shopping for my stuff, and today has been insane business.
OMB SS IS THE GREATEST GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED IN MY LIFE!
THERE'S THIS TRAINER...*shot*
[/channeling Chester A. Bum)
I am surprised it is this good, though.
And I haven't even gotten to Bugsy. Haha.
I think one of my favorite things about the new games is the Wifi. I've done, like, three trades in the last few days. Got a Jirachi and special!Pichu from a friend on DA, and people on pokewifi literally give away eggs. So I have a bunch of stuff from DPP...
Now, for today's report:
Today keeps shifting between comedy of errors and good. On the one hand, I didn't need to go to math class today (Midterm study) but I wouldn't have heard a really funny joke if I hadn't. I also wouldn't have gotten my hair dye for my costume (well, more dye) or some knee highs for the shoes I got (the shoes are kind of small...).
On the other hand, I tripped carrying Matzo/Matzah/however you wanna spell it into synagogue and hurt myself. It didn't scrape up my elbow too bad, but my entire right arm hurts like hell now. Seriously, all the way up to my shoulder and down to my hand. D: What the heck did that fall do!?
And I now have a Matzah box corner shaped bruise on my face from where I fell on one DX
But I did find out Pokewalkers are amazingly resilent. Considering I fell on the side where it was...
It was seriously the first thing I checked. It's like "Please be okay Jigglypuff!" XD
And speaking of Pokemans...
I got THIS:
I found it at my local Walmart on the bottom of the case. It's the same price there as the game by itself.
Hell yeah I bought it.
I owe my parents a little money now, but that's okay. I'll pay them back when Mike hands me the cash for doing his cover tomorrow night.
Nice case, too. Has room for the DS and three games. So, HG, SS, and Pt. ^_^
Also, the figure rocks so hard. I have it being flanked by the legendary bird figures!
I need to take pics of my collection now... :)
I didn't even realize I was starting a figure collection back up until just now, but I really like collecting them. Next week I should have a Fearow figure and a Pachirisu plushie coming in.
I'm such a dork... >_>
But a happy one! ^_^
BTW, if anyone wants one of the special sets like the pic above, lemme know, and I can try to get it for you. You'll have to send the money, but...
Anyway, I need to go eat with the family now. Post later!
I currently have SoulSilver in my DS...it's SHINY.
Also, I barely got a figurine. Apparently Nintendo didn't send out enough for the preorders (O_o), and they had run out. Originally, the girl said "Um, we're out of Lugias... would you like 2 Ho-ohs?"
My heart dropped.
Me: No lugia?
Girl: No, sorry...*talks to associate* Oh, we're out of Ho-ohs too...
Me: o_o *looks like you just kicked her puppy*
Girl: Hm... *to associate: Hey, can she have these ones on the monitors? Okay* Alright, here ya go! ^.^
Me: ^_^ Thank you so much!
So Gamestop in Loganville, GA wins major points, IMO.
Nintendo distribution center, however, loses points for not being smart enough to ship out enough.
Going to go by later this week and see if they still need those posters and big boxes... :-)
I should have a package coming in from japax early this week, so I'll do a collection post on pkmncollectors soon.
Oh, and this is the first DS Gen games I've bought ever...
I have so much to learn...
That's how long making Michael Bugg's cover took me...
The final product:
Considering this is the first cover I've ever done, I'd say it looks pretty damn good, IMHO.
Went to the mall today to swap out my shirt (it had some pulls in the silk), and to get Andy a shirt as well. His is a silver version of mine, more or less, and he looks ADORABLE. Gah, too bad men aren't usually attracted to older sisters with their cute baby brothers hanging around :P (I'll post pictures when we get the costumes together!)
Looking online to try to see if I can find a Ryoga piggy ("P-chan") plushie. Thankfully they're not too expensive.
But slacks are hard to find for me... x_x, and we still need shoes...
OH! And we bought hair dye for Shrimpie and me. Got him some temp black, so we can spray it in. Hope he looks better with it than I do XD
I got some sort of temp red to make my red hair brighter/more RED red.
We're going to look Effin' adorable...
BTW, I also picked up some cheap copies of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I've actually read part of PP before, so the difference is noticeable. But Seth Grahame-Smith does an amazing job of using the language Austen uses, writing like her, etc. I could barely put it down to work on the cover! XD
SGS just came out with another book as well:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
I kid you not!
I looked through it, though, and I will definitely pick it up when I have money.
I'm going to try to post some icons from a Pokemon comic I've been reading on DA soon, but I haven't even had a chance to batch edit yet x_x (Sorry hon, I'll get it up as soon as I can. Probably Saturday evening at the earliest.)
And of course...
2 DAYS TO LIFTOFF!
Alright, I'm taking a shower, then reading before passing out and getting barely enough sleep before Math Class tomorrow morning. *sob* I have math midterms coming up soon...
P.s. Welcome, very_bookish !
So I can't find the fedora or trenchcoat for the Cool trainer... which means I'm probabaly going as Silver. If that doesn't work, I'll have to go as my OC Hadassah...in other words, myself :P
My problem is I just realized that Silver's pants are... kind of light blue, and...are they cargo pants or jeans? Any ideas folks on what would be better?
I had been under the impression they were black... boy, my memory recieves an F...
9 DAYS UNTIL HGSS!!! =D
You may continue with your normal programming.
Oh em gee, it's almost 3:30...Ruggles needs her sleep.
Anyway, letting me know about what sort of pants would be best would be of great benefit... I need to find some...
Here's the links to pics:
They kind of look like cargoes, but...blue cargoes?
P.s. I'll post a pic of my shirt soon...hopefully. :)
In fact, I felt downright shitty and bitter today.
I guess it has to do with last night and thinking about my childhood and talking about it with blackjackrocket . Then I was at the store,
So yeah. Cue bitterness.
EDIT: Damn, I just realized I've kind of been selfish and a bitch today... *apologies to EVERYONE*
So, while I'm posting a story, it's...well, it technically a romance, but mostly a drama/angst.
I've actually been meaning to refer to this event at some point...
It isn't very well written, IMHO, but hopefully you'll like it a little.
So, here's the story:
Title: Letting go
Characters: Gavriel and Dvorah Awres, Seren, Giovanni, G&S's kids
Notes: Actually goes along with the VDay fic I'll post later, when I can manage it
Mia Stella- "My star" in Italian
Neshama- "My soul" in Hebrew
Ema- "mother" in Hebrew, but also can indicate a grandmother or mother-figure
Summary: An extremely shortened version of two people dealing with pain.
Happens between Madame Boss’s sentencing in Bare, and his taking over Team Rocket in the same story.
Part two occurs a few years in the future (so they’re in their early 40s, probably 42 to be exact)
( "Have you ever considered just...letting go?" )
( Story notes )
And now that that's posted, I'm going to go eat something, now that I feel better.
Hope you like!
- Holy crap, six minutes of playing scenes from the first movie...
- I prefer Dan Green to Mewtwo's Japanese actor. But that's because it's DAN GREEN!
- Giovanni's voice actor... he sounds pretty good, but I enjoy listening to him played by Ted Lewis/Ed Paul more. Sexy voice... :3
- Japanese Narrator kick the dub's ass.
- Also, Domino is voiced by Usagi Tsukino's VA. AKA MOTHEREFFIN SAILOR MOON. So, Domino=Sailor Moon?
Which is actually kind of awesome.
Man, throw back to my childhood much?
Also, I can't be the only one who has noticed that Dan Green and Ted Lewis have played opposite of each other in at least two anime dubs. Here, it's Mewtwo/Giovanni, and in Yu-Gi-Oh, it's Yugi/Yami-Yugi and Bakura/Yami-Bakura.
Which makes it funny if you take clips of them talking to each other and put it in the opposite anime... (don't laugh, it's been done)
And whenever they do, the awesome quotient explodes.
And so far into part one, while the dub was pretty cool, the Japanese s kind of kicking it's ass. :-/
Update: Now that I finished the movie, I have concluded that the original is, for the most part, superior to the dub. The voice acting, the MUSIC (Oh my bob, the music is killer!), and the overall feel...
Hell, Domino actually came across as badass here, even with the SM voice XD (she just seemed kind of 'meh' to me before O_o)
But the Japanese don't have Dan Green or Ed Paul, so I must only give it a 9/10.... :/
Also, since today was the last day for the special, I went ahead and bought FRLG at GS when I was putting more money down on HGSS.
Man, now I am broke...
But it's worth it &hearts
Update 2: I FOUND MY DS! =D It was hiding in my room :-/ But now I can play FRLG!
Also, I updated my links so you can watch the Japanese Pokemon episodes. This makes me beyond happy to watch the originals. &hearts &hearts
I want the soundtrack so bad...
and upon them was written "receive a (Lugia/Ho'oh) figure on pick up". And verily did I paid the $10 to reserve them both....
And I art a geek to the max...
(Why the heck am I speaking like that?)
See I wasn't going to preorder them, but the figures kicked some manic thing off, and now I'm fangirling out....
Damn, I'm a nerd.
Off to go eat delicious sushi, and then maybe to Toco Hills with mom to pick up food for tonight.
Giovanni, Seren, Domino, Junior (G&S's oldest son, Domino's hubby), Silver, Rosa-Bree (G&S's oldest daughter, the adorable one from Bare), Jessie, James, Meowth, Alden Rochat (Giovanni's father), Mondo, &
I'll add more characters later, but let's stick with the ones that have made appearances (cameo or otherwise) thus far.
Basially, this is for me to flesh out things, so it'd be great if you all would help.
The Which Do You Prefer section:
I'm coming up with nicknames for some Pokemon, and I need a little help...
It's a male umbreon, and so far, the nicknames I'm choosing between are:
Laila (LIE-luh; "Night")
Erev (Eh-rev; "Evening")
Considering its countrpart, Espeon, is nicknamed "Ora" (OR-rah; "Light"), I'm thinking Laila, but since it's male...
Some of the Pokemon in the group have nicknames already:
Fearow (M): Ayah ("Cormorant")
Dragonair (F): Tani ("Dragon")
Persian (F): Persia (LOL)
Cleffa (F): No nickname yet, working on that
I'm so very creative with nicknames aren't I...
Also, This is so freaking sweet. And take a look at the pics of the voice actors (and from what I've heard of the voice acting, it's awesome). It's official, Israelis are hot. Though I'm sad it doesn't list Sakaki-sama's voice actor...
(And am I the only one who thinks Dawn Lanny-Gabay (the last pic on the page) would make a delicious Seren? It think I've developed a grl-crush...soooo pretty =P)
Anyway, fire those questions away and lt me know your preferene on that nickname, please!
Thank you guys in advance! <3 (What the crap, the heart html doesn't work...)
Notes: Sometime close in the future, the world has started to fall apart. A mysterious group of bounty hunters has emerged in the chaos to clean up the mess, but will their own pasts catch up with them? .
( REDONE Wanted preview [you know you want to read it] )
*sigh* and that's all I've got for know, sorry for it cutting off like that. I promise to continue working on it...
Hope this version makes more sense...You know, for a preview...
In other news, I did my alloted 30 minutes of WiiFit today. Let's hope I can keep this up...
Dammit, my stomach is sore from one of the yoga poses... >_<
And I also have bloodwork in the morning... *gets in hot chocolate and some sweets before midnight*
That story is DEFINITELY a longfic...
Warning: Violence, and a bit of silly melodrama from the SR... >_< *isn't sure whether to take that out or not*
Also, SPOILERS for the SR's identity!! You have been warned...(Not that most of you hadn't figured it out by now... :P)
Takes place in their 20s
( Sinful Rose Opening )
Here's the preview for when Seren's being tortured in Crimson King...
Warning: Contains violence, not suitable for anyone under 14.
Takes place about a year and a half ago (August 2008), so they're about 43
( Crimson King preview 1 )
And finally, part of my wanted prompt:
EDIT: Don't read that one, read the one I just posted above, please.
Let me know what you think, por favor! Thank you!
Okay, let me get back on track...
Anyway, I was wondering what to name Giovanni/Seren... So far, I've come up with...
Earthstar-shipping (Do you need me to explain this??)
Sakashi (Sakaki + HoSHIko, the Japanese version of Seren)
I personally like Earthstar...
I dunno, what do you folks think??? Any ideas?
In retrospect, I like Wordsnatcher's Second-in-Commandshipping (heh heh heh)...she originally put it as Domino/Junior, but since Seren's the
AHA, I know! Domino/junior is Heirshipping! ^.^ Woohoo! *lists in interests*
lemme know what you think works! <3
Also, what the hell is up with the random shakes I'm getting? I thought it might be from getting cold, but I'm not feeling cold necessarily when it happens... WebMD says "acute stress reaction", but that doesn't make sense. Hm...
And I forgot how AWESOME Ratatouille is! That movie makes me smile so hard... :-D
I also seem to have a cold for the 3rd time this year...good bob!
So, after reading Wordsnatcher's fic, I was inspired to finally sit down and finish a prompt I had start a million times over, but never completed. W00t! Enjoy!
Characters: Giovanni, Seren, Madame Boss
Notes: How far would you go for a loved one?
( 18. Bare )
As I am using these prompts to help me flesh out a fanfic I am writing, They may be a little long. Just to warn you.
I figured starting with the Beginning prompt would be helpful, and fun. My continuity will almost always be the show, but I’ll be throwing in tidbits from the manga every now in then. Sorry, folks, Silver may not be making an appearance, despite his badassery.
Speaking of which, this particular prompt is rated G, and takes place shortly after the Persian story in How I Became a Pokémon Card. Yeah, I consider that canon to the anime. Hush. :P
I've also had people ask wht the girls dislike her. The answer? They simply do. Considering I've been under the same thing as Seren in this one, I know all too well that little kids can be jerks.
