  • My mom had a hip replacement 6 weeks or so ago. She’s doing really well, and I’ve learned a bunch of new things (like How to Find the Mailboxes, because we need a new Netflix movie)

  • Being into doing housework and learning lots of new life skills means it’s really hard to sit down and write—which wouldn’t be so bad except for the game review I should probably get done.

  • Said game I should be reviewing is Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness. Naturally, I jumped down the Rabbit Hole of Procrastination and Party Collecting that is the Disgaea-verse postgame. (Then again, I’m still playing it after 130+ hours, so…thumbs up?)

  • All this video game playing means I’ve listened to a lot of Welcome to Night Vale.

  • I’d really like to get this review written, though, because [community profile] festivids opens for signups soon! I am excited! (Too excited. I started clipping already.)

  • I have my own credit card now. It’s exciting and scary at the same time. Just now—as in, five seconds ago—I pre-ordered Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness. I’ve never pre-ordered anything before.

  • Relatedly, I gave up on reading library copies of A Song of Ice and Fire. So I’m just buying them. I am re-reading A Game of Thrones, partly because it was so long between the first time I checked it out and the second that I forgot, like, half of the book.

  • I got a pre-release copy of a video game for review and actually finished the game before it comes out! (Release date is July 16.) This never happens! Some of it is, I play a lot of 50-hour role-playing games and a lot of publishers don’t send us copies a month and a half in advance. Some of it is because my gaming skills are pretty average. (What I lack in skill I make up for in repetition. Level-grinding is fun.) Some of it is I get anxious when I’m stuck and will avoid things—WHICH I DID NOT DO THIS TIME. Go, me!

  • I still have to write the review, though, which is always the hard part :( For the last couple of days I did some freewriting at restaurants. It’s hard to balance “I’m really in no hurry to finish this” with “If I avoid doing it, it just gets easier to avoid.”

  • I’m feeling very social today! Maybe I can take advantage of this and e-mail my editor.

  • I don't want to clean the house today.

  • My dog is barky, even though I took him for a long walk.

Hi! *waves*

I borrowed this idea from [personal profile] glass_icarus. (Who am I kidding? I'm not giving it back.)

Hi, new people and not-so-new people! Ask me anything you want, fannish or otherwise. (Although, some of the answers may be boring. Or scary.)

One of the perks of my new house is the uber-cheap movie theater within walking distance. I invited my cousin and her kids to see Ice Age 4: Continental Drift yesterday, and for Halloween I'm planning on seeing Resident Evil: Retribution. I will let y'all know how that works out!

Have a meme, stolen from [personal profile] recessional again:

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.).

 We're getting more and more moved into our new house! Although one day my mom had to work and I had no  cable or video games, so I watched lots of Revolutionary Girl Utena as I put books away. This was an excellent use of my time and I have lots of Feelings, which I can only express as "WOAH." I, um, think Anthy is kind of my favorite?

Hey, wait! Here's something I can sort of put into words!

spoilers! )

Have a Tumblr meme!:

Give me a fandom, character or pairing and I will write you a drabble! (Utena prompts are indeed welcome!)

  •  A new house! We bought a house, which we should  be able to move into by September 30.
  • A new and highly-accessible-to-me neighborhood! There's a mall within walking distance of the house, as well as two movie theaters. One is even super-cheap ($3 after 6:00 PM!) And...
  • A bookstore that will take ALL MY MONEY, for serious. I found Vol. 1 of Ranma 1/2 the last time I was there, and today when I took a bunch of books/DVDs/video games in I left with:
  • Soul Eater Vol. 1, Vol. 2 of Ranma 1/2, some cheap headphones for my Walkman and some magazines about John and Robert Kennedy from 1965. (My mother was like: "Didn't we just get rid of your stuff?" ALL. MY. MONEY.)
  • A lovely compliment about my fic! But...
  • Uncertainty about/lack of motivation for writing anything, and no problem whatever inflicting drawings on you all.
  • An "electricity" square and a "foot fetish" square in my characters-with-disabilities line for [community profile] kink_bingo 
  • A newly-acquired love of Avengers fanart, especially when they are doing semi-mundane things like making dinner or punking humans or annoying Director Fury with their shenanigans.
  • No more iced coffee. :(

Stuff!

terajk: Blair in humanish form, swiping a hand like a paw. (blair-chan: nya!)

  1. So, there's this new coffee shop opening up (COFFEE!) and I know how to walk there! It's owned by/part of a church, and the church is looking for volunteers to help out for an hour a week, doing drywall or vacuuming and doing windows. Yesterday I actually talked to the pastor and was supposed to come in today, but there were storms! I did actually call to let him know I wouldn't be in (sort of a big deal for me,) but I still feel bad. Even though, like, there was supposed to be a parade today and it got postponed/cancelled.

  2. TERRIBLE horror movie I saw today! Fatphobia and ableism )

  3. Speaking of feeling bad, I defaulted on my first fic exchange D: But! While writing 1k is sort-of-overwhelming for me right now, I can still make treats? Which are shorter? And which don't have to be fic?


  4. My brain wants to write character sketches--I do this a lot, and it's an important part of my process. But right now my brain wants to tackle the Toph-Azula thing, (SPOILERS) and nothing good EVER comes of that. I've half-convinced myself that once I've worked out all the interpersonal conflicts and also FEELINGS, the actual plot will fall into place. And it won't require Toph's friends/Zuko and Iroh to come down with Plot-Induced Incompentence. Or convenient death.


  5. Relatedly! I could also work on things that have stuff in common with the Toph-Azula thing, but would be less hard/made of shame and foolishness. Like The Epic Story of That Time Shibusen was Undergoing Renovations and Kid and Miss Marie Were Like, "Eff this nonsense! Let's skip school!" Or The Epic Story of How Ranma Showed Ryoga Where the Cat Cafe Is, Maybe, and Akane Sprained Her Eyeballs from Rolling Them So Hard. Or The Epic Story of That Time Ryoga and Mousse Saved Nerima and by Extension, the Universe Together, although I need to read Journey to the West Or Blair doing things (including being a psychiatric service cat) because....BLAIR! (A lot of things we've found about service animals are about dogs. Blair would like to complain.)


  6. I still haven't figured out, like, a way to organize all these notes and research generally. Which means I can also waste time planning A System instead of writing or whatever. (Although I do totally need A System.)


  7. But again, I still feel BAD about not being able to write things, and 100 words is doable! And [personal profile] petra is running Porn Tag Calvinball! My thread is here. (ATLA, Ouran, Ranma 1/2, Soul Eater--also if anyone wants to prompt me with Azula/Toph I will not complain.

In our town, there's a bus for elderly and disabled people that picks you up at your house. Yesterday I took the bus to the movie theater to see Madagascar 3. (When I called to set everything up, the guy I was talking to...forgot who the bus was for? Because he was all,"How old are you?" and "This bus is only for the elderly.") I think I'm mostly in this series for the penguins and the lemurs. While I love the spin-off cartoon where the penguins are the main characters, I also love their dynamic in the movies, where they bust out of nowhere with a FUCKING COOL CAR and save the day.

Speaking of, back when I was like, "It annoys me how in a couple things I saw, paranoia was associated with the villain" I can't believe I FORGOT ABOUT SKIPPER. Okay, so he is more of an anti-hero (and also, a penguin) but still. Saved the day in a FUCKING COOL CAR.

And now I would like a fannish thing where Marty and Julien hang out/have an argument/come up with a (Master) Plan, etc, based solely on the fact that the "Afro Circus/I Like to Move It" mashup exists. (Sadly, I can't find the actual scene):



(Lyrics here.)

(When the trailers started, there was sound, but no picture. And I had no idea where I should go to tell somebody. Did I have to find the projectionist? Do I just tell someone taking tickets? WHERE DO I GO? I finally just went back out into the lobby, and this lady had already found someone in the lobby, who said they were working on it. So know I know what to do if/when such a snafu happens again.)

I AM SUCH AN ADULT. (I was wearing a Pikachu shirt, by the way.)

I have a lot of emotional hangups related to my experiences in school.

 This one stolen from [personal profile] rhivolution:

Is there anything you've always wanted to ask me? About my life, my views of the universe, my writing, anything?

Go ahead!

A meme I stole borrowed from [personal profile] lizbee, who originally got it from Tumblr and made it more accessible to us all:


Give me the most inaccurate description of me that you can think of. I will respond appropriately.


For example, "Tera hates video games, even though she is very good at them. She especially hates video games about a bunch of anti-hero demons.
terajk: Iroh and Toph dancing (iroh & toph: Dancing)
  1. We’re having a major heat wave this week. The heat index is 115 degrees Fahrenheit. I can’t go walking—boo.

  2. I went to the eye doctor today, and then Mom and I brought the PlayStation 3 upstairs (where it’s cooler) and hooked it up to a tiny!TV. I decided that if I was still stuck and frustrated after 15 minutes of playing that I would move on to something else. Then me and my tiny!TV and my dilated pupils beat the Teleporting Boss of Doom, because we are awesome. Now we have to beat the final boss, who doesn’t seem as hard. (It moves in a matchable pattern, rather than TELEPORTING ON TOP OF ME AT RANDOM). I am going to play some Disgaea 3,because I deserve it.

  3. [community profile] femslash_kink is open for fills! And there are such marvelous prompts! But I'm a total noob at writing kink—maybe spending time with Mao’s ego will give me the (over)confidence I need to fill some.
terajk: Ryoga, grabbing Ranma by his pajama-top and shouting: "Do you remember where my house is?!" (katara: looking up & slightly angry)
So! I am getting close to finished with the game I'm reviewing! But:

1. The boss does up to 700+ in damage.

2. She also teleports, which cuts into my very clever "run around while healing and use the AI partner as a meat shield" strategy. (The AI partner calls me on it).

3. I almost killed her once, but made the mistake of trying to revive my partner instead of just finishing her off.

4. Square-Enix is involved with this game. If I do kill this boss, she probably has four other forms. (Oh, self, how pessimistic of you. Square-Enix only published it).

5. Multiple forms aside, I don't think she is the final boss. The walkthrough--which I refuse to read, because I am awesome--says there's another quest after this.

6. This quest is called "Rebirth;" it may be the four other forms.
