I’ve read two interesting vampire novels lately. Actually, I’ve read a lot of novels lately, some absolute dreck, some not too bad. The winter vacation left me bored, as it always does, so I ferreted out a very comprehensive, very well-thought out and very long list of fantasy novel recommendations on the internet, and proceeded to read my way through it.

Anyhow, vampire novels. I’ll be honest, I love vampires. I love vampire novels, and I’ve been known to read utter trash if there’s a vampire in it (I read sixteen books of Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter, and am now compelled to gravely doubt my own sanity whenever I recall that fact). I even read Twilight, but shhhh, we shall not talk of Twilight. Fun as a good trashy urban fantasy novel of the read-and-throw type can be, at the end of the day most of them are, well, read-and-throw. It’s hard to find a vampire novel that actually has brains (and no, that’s not a zombie joke). Which makes these two books a pleasurable find.

I've been involved for a while now in a wonderful fantasy roleplay in the Literate Roleplaying Guild on Gaia - it's called The Crucible, and you should totally go and read it, because it is incredible. I'm playing alongside some of my oldest roleplaying buddies, all of whom are awesome writers, and I fall more in love with the plot and the characters with every new post. <3 I've even been inspired to do art!

Cut to artCollapse )

I've been rather terrible about updating lately, really, so there's a large pile of accumulated unreported news sitting on some metaphorical plane and glaring metaphorically at me with metaphorical eyes. Nonetheless, due to constraints of time, space, and (most importantly) patience, I shall proceed to rummage in said pile and fish out only the most important item of news - which is that our exams are over, as is our undergraduate life, and we are now (more or less) officially graduates!

Obviously, celebrations were in orderCollapse )

The good thing about the internet is that you often discover the most brilliant of gems in the most unlikely of places. I made one such discovery lately, and it's an album called Märchen, by a band called Sound Horizon. It's no exaggeration to say I was completely and totally swept off my feet, fell in love at first sight, and have been obsessively re-listening to it ever since.

The main purpose of this entry is to inveigle my friends into checking out something which might normally put them off with its foreignness and unfamiliarity, so I'll leave you with only the following vital information:

It's a little known fact that I've been playing The Sims 2 on and off in a desultory kind of fashion for the last three years or so. These last few months, however, I've discovered the miracles of custom content - and of course, there was no going back. I now have a host of exceedingly well-dressed Sims with thoroughly well-cluttered residences, and my Downloads folder is fit to burst with all the files I've stuffed into it.

So yesterday, I sat down armed with Gadwin and a host of freshly-downloaded poseboxes, and proceeded to subject my two current favourite Sims to an intensive photoshoot. These are some of the results. Image-heavy, but I can't help it, they're just so fun to photograph. <3

pretty boys galoreCollapse )

Just some squishy little renditions I did of myself and seven of my friends. More to come, hopefully!

The anime's out.

I found Episode 1 online.

So. Well, you know, I like to think that I form that percentage of any fanbase which comes under the label of reasonable. I respect the canon, don't make up my own pairings and then insist on their authenticity, don't heap abuse on characters I don't like, and would certainly never get into a silly argument over plot points, personal opinions, or squeal, giggle, squee and shriek in a manner both embarrassing and uncontrollable.

But this?

OHMYFUCKINGOD I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS SO LONG AHAHAHAHA GOODBYE AGTH AND ATLAS AND YOUR SCRAMBLED ENGRISH SO LONG! NANO AND SHIKI AND ASUFHOGUHGAKIBBLES AKIRA! RIN! MOTOMI! GUNJIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! 

BRB SQUEALING LIKE A MADWOMAN!
