Feature a Fantasy Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 21)

It's a lot easier to choose a fantasy character that I like than to choose a sci-fi character of whom I'm fond. I think I'll keep it chill today with my selection, which may have been predictable but is no less worthy of feature. Sebastian (Black Butler) is a fantastic fantasy character. He's temptation personified, … Continue reading Feature a Fantasy Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 21)

From the Heart of a Dying Man (or, "In Sickness and in Health") -- Souji's Journal, Preface Shoujothoughts Summary: No, that sounds stupid.

“Band of Brothers: This is going to take me like 17 years.” (Or, A Sane Person’s Commentary on “Brothers Conflict” – dub)

Enjoying this title should probably be considered shameful if the number of times I shouted, "WHY ARe yoU DoING THat ShE's YOuR SisTER!?!" is any indication. In Brother's Conflict (hereafter referred to as BroCon), protagonist Ema (also referred to as "Chi") is thrust into a new family dynamic when her father gets remarried after many years of … Continue reading “Band of Brothers: This is going to take me like 17 years.” (Or, A Sane Person’s Commentary on “Brothers Conflict” – dub)

I herniated my spine, but because I am a woman, the doctor refused to get me proper treatment. (or, more positively, “I’m salty but so thankful and I’m gonna be okay, guys. <3 <3 <3")

Doctors don't take women's pain seriously. Don't believe me? See Professor Google. Better yet, here: educate yourselves. I never knew this was a widespread phenomenon until it happened to me. But after months of steadily increasing pain, after all the doctor's instances that I was just experiencing !!!muscle aches!!!???, after reaching an inability to work, all … Continue reading I herniated my spine, but because I am a woman, the doctor refused to get me proper treatment.

“Somebody make me feel alive.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (10/20/17)

Let's be real: I have no idea what I'm doing with this. Maybe it sounds ridiculous, but I like Nighcore, the Hakuouki characters, and the song "Shatter Me" by Lindsey Sterling and Lizzy Hale. Combine them and I don't have a choice but to feature it, you see? https://youtu.be/dP_GoPG9ceQ I won't pretend that this AMV by Mitsu … Continue reading “Somebody make me feel alive.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (10/20/17)

I tell him that I am magic, but that's … Continue reading “I second that spit take.” Watch Along- Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 6

“In Spite of How I Truly Feel Inside” -_ midpoint impressions of “Banana Fish” (sub)

[Author's Note: This is not a full review, but an impression post. A review will come after I finish the series.] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwXSqv63iUA&t=8s I first heard of Banana Fish through---surprise, surprise---Twitter.
