At Least There’s Some Beauty in That (a reflection, with premise)

I don't even know what I'm doing. I should be writing a challenge piece. I don't even know. This reflection came about because Keiko nominated me for a "One Lovely Blogger" Award; it got me thinking about things my audience may not know about me (for purposes of fulfilling the challenge requirements). I love having … Continue reading At Least There’s Some Beauty in That (a reflection, with premise)

Feat. a Character with the Best Quotes (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 12)

I was kidnapped yesterday, my friend Ginger bought a wedding dress, I'm eating onigiri over my lunch break, and this challenge post is late. I blame Attack on Titan. But wait, you say. I finished AoT two days ago? Yes, you're right, but it is what it is. Allow me to explain, dear readers. I … Continue reading Feat. a Character with the Best Quotes (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 12)

Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Love (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 11)

Yuri Katsuki taught me that love doesn't need a label to be meaningful, to be beautiful. I've written an expose on the relationship between Victor and Yuri in the past*, but I'll reiterate that this show moved me because of its ambiguity. Yuri's passion for the ice as a manifestation of his love for Victor doesn't … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Love (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 11)

Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Life (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 10)

Enter... Eren Jaeger, who taught me about the nature of humanity.   He taught me that perseverance, determination, nerve, and grit mean just as much as inborn ability. He taught me that even the best of us fail under pressure. He taught me that it is possible to loose yourself in the heat of the moment … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Life (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 10)

Feat. a Character that Would Be Your Best Friend (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 9)

The difficulty in this particular challenge piece is establishing what exactly I should here consider; do I choose a best friend based on compatibility or simply on the interest that I have in said character? For example, I feel like Yurio (Yuri!!! On Ice) and I would have quite the interesting dynamic, and I'd be … Continue reading Feat. a Character that Would Be Your Best Friend (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 9)

Feat. the Most Annoying Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 6)

I mean... there are characters who get on my nerves, after all. Enter Juri! If you've seen Brother's Conflict, you'll know of the small and fluffy grey squirrel named Juri who follows the main character, Hinata Ema, and obnoxiously inserts himself into every facet of her young life. To be quite honest, I don't mind … Continue reading Feat. the Most Annoying Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 6)

Feat. a Group of Characters Most Like Your Friend Group (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 5)

I'm keeping all of these challenge entries within an anime frame of reference for purposes of the blog. Just thought that I'd throw that out there in case I wasn't explicit about it before. Moving on... Enter... The SOS Brigade! Because this topic (like so many others) deserves a post of its own accord, I … Continue reading Feat. a Group of Characters Most Like Your Friend Group (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 5)

Feat. a Character Who Acts Like You (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 4)

Enter Tamaki Suoh! My best friend, Ginger, watched Ouran with me a few times... Do you remember that? (I apologize if you remember that... though my podcasts probably aren't much better. Maybe. I dunno. Anyway...) Regardless, she will tell you straight up (and I will proudly agree!!) that I am basically Tamaki Suoh from Ouran … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Acts Like You (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 4)
