SO TWO THINGS
First of all I can't see journal styles or anything anymore on JF, why is this. Everything is just unstyled white and black and weird formatting :(
MORE IMPORTANTLY THOUGH, if I wanted to post or submit wank
about someone manufacturing a panther dildo based on his Fursona and naming it after said Fursona, after a poll in which people overwhelmingly vote for a different name, and his Fursona is named after a Tolkien elven character or something and people start expressing concerns (on page 11) about copyright and appropriateness, and it devolves into wank and ends when the creator goes on a fucking tirade:But for those who are romantic, who bought this not just as a sex toy but as a novelty and a work of art, know this: Bagheera’s passion awaits, but it needs to be earned; just like trust, just like understanding. The more you learn about him, the more the name “Fruit of Lorien” WILL make sense. I am hoping, that amongst BD’s customers, there will be at least some people who will appreciate this project to this extent.
IF I WANTED TO WANK THAT SOMEWHERE, WHAT WOULD BE THE APPROPRIATE COMMUNITY FOR SUCH THINGS.ETA
I FIXED THE STYLE THING.
Also someone funnier than I should wank the dildo thing.

REPOASTED FROM LJ
LOLOL GUYS. MOAR DGM KINK MEME FUN. This time with actual stuff not having been deleted. Oh wow.
Okay, so. AS I'VE MENTIONED BEFORE. There's a D.Gray-man Kink Meme
! And to stave off wanky discussion that was popping up in the meme, there's also a DGM Kink Meme Discussion Journal
. Because we take our Allen/Kanda/two Exorcists one Innocence porn very seriously.
There's this guy, yakaji
, who has just generally been making himself hilarious over on the discussion journal. No wanksplosions exactly, since the maintainer of that journal is incredibly freeze-happy and delete-happy and is kind of a hilarious choice for running a DISCUSSION JOURNAL. But Yakaji has managed to make himself stand out anyway!
First off, there's the thread about whether or not Kanda is an uke
, which started off
as wanky in an entirely different way but soon devolved into Yakaji making comments like this:Re earlier discussion thread on uke and seme.
Terms are less an indication of physical location, more an indication of dominance relationship.
Honestly, if your idea of "relationship dynamics" is nothing more or less than who's on the receiving end of the stick.... Well...
Shikata ga nai, na...
And then when an anon wonders what the fuck he's talking about, due to his random use of fanboy Japanese, he launches into a huge fucking spiel about the SEME/UKE DYNAMIC and the origin of the words. When someone points out that we don't all speak Japanese, he replies withMaybe I'm expecting too much when I think people who bandy about Japanese words UNDERSTAND them. I didn't think it was that difficult.
with regards to words like. HISSHI. Which isn't a COMMON FANDOM WORD. But he thought we'd be able to pick it up from context, really, why couldn't we do that!?
He gets warned for that, and then a few weeks later, he decides to come back and inform us all
that the "Please make these characters 18 or over only!" disclaimer on the kink meme isn't necessary because HE HAS DONE INTERNET RESEARCH! ON AMERICAN LAWS! AND WE ARE ALL TOTALLY SAFE! BECAUSE THE INTERNET IS AMERICA!Turns out, in the US at least, and probably in most countries, child pornography laws exist almost entirely to prevent the sexual abuse of minors. Or at least, that's how they're on the books - I'm sure there are conservative parties out there who think any depiction of minors in sexual situations is so inherently WRONG that anyone who would read/write such filth should be locked up.
Oh gosh! Ya think? Why, that means we're all completely safe! Especially on good old LIVEJOURNAL! Nothing bad ever happens on LIVEJOURNAL!
That gets frozen right away, obviously.
I also got some lulz from this thread
, which basically consists of "Hey, I liked your fic." "NAAAAH, CHECK OUT THIS OTHER, TOTALLY UNRELATED THING I WROTE, ARCHIVED HERE AND HERE, IT'S AWESOME!" We won't even go into the fic itself.The hand fell lower, lower, past the tangle of curly hair where their bodies met, lower until he found that hard knob of flesh that caused Lenalee so much pleasure. He rested two fingers on top of it, and felt them squeezed hard as he pushed forward inside of her once again.
Lenalee’s breath stopped as she felt the increased pressure. Lavi watched as her eyes tightened and her lips curved into a circle. He raised his hips, drawing himself out of her, and then thrust forward powerfully. The two fingers crunched together, crunched with his pubic bone and hers.
Ha ha ha, I lied. :(
In any case, the DGM kink meme is nearing 5000 comments now and the original creator appears to "not be paying attention" (which may well be the case, but I know discussions have been deleted semi-recently, and I wonder if anyone even tried to contact her). CLEARLY A NEW MEME IS NEEDED! And Yakaji has volunteered to take on the staggering responsibility of posting and maintaining it! OH I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS.
The new meme has no comments yet, but it can be found here
. Take a look at that introduction. Christ. DO YOU EVER FUCKING STOP TALKING. Look, I know this is an issue I have too. But honestly.Fills don't necessarily have to be sexual in nature. Personally, my genre of choice tends to be crackish humor. But if a requester has asked for really hot, steamy, ultrakinkish action, please do your best to make their eyes bleed.
Yeah thanks, I really needed to know what you like, Kinkmaster. Is this a kink meme or a kiddy coaster?Don't worry about making your characters 18 or anything. Child pornography laws require that actual children be exploited. This is just a friendly ANONYMOUS community of people with... eclectic tastes. Everything is fair play.
HA HA HA, OH OKAY, I GUESS THAT ANSWERS THAT!

ILU DGM FANDOM
I am so sad, you guys, I have been following mini-epic wank fun over LJ way, but it all keeps getting deleted. ;o;
HERE IS THE TALE:
So D.Gray-man has a kink meme
, as seen right there! Which is pretty . . . bad, big shock there. 31 pages of requests, very little gets filled, a lot of it is horrible, hilarious wank in some of the comments.
did not think this was enough! Despite the fact that like 75% of the requests on the HUGE-ASS ORIGINAL MEME are yaoi requests, she decided to make a YAOI ONLY kink meme for DGM. Fair enough, do what you gotta do. But then an anonymous, who was TOTALLY NOT HER YOU GUYS, posted an advertisement in the original kink meme. People jumped on it to lol, other people jumped on THOSE people to say fuck off. The "advertiser" WHO WAS TOTALLY NOT VAMPYREICE! came back to leave long-winded comments about how we could all fuck off and stop replying to her because it was against the rules of the meme to talk to her. People point out that advertising another kink meme is ALSO against the rules of the meme.
Anyway, this all got deleted, sadly, and I don't have the comments in my logs. It's sad because I'd love to share an example of the "anon advertiser's" comments; the style is VERY VERY UNIQUE, with a lot of bitchy long-winded passive-aggressiveness and, most importantly, the constant
use of bold tags to emphasize
So people take the discussion
to the Kink Meme Discussion Community, dgmkink_disc
. The mod of that comm points out that she was pissed at Vampyre using HER discussion comm without asking, and Vampyre shows up, sounding strangely like the anonymous advertiser of her meme!First of all when I linked to you I didn't realise taht it would be a problem, if I had thought it would be than I most definitely would have asked. I just figured you wouldn't mind a little extra advertisment. Second of all, and I find it curious that you didn't mention this, was that when you asked me to take down the link... I did. Straight away.
The DGM Discussion mod freezes the thread and deletes some of her comments. Unfortunately. Because THE REASON I FELT THE NEED TO SHARE ALL THIS is how epic Vampyre was being in the comments that got deleted. For example, in defense against the anon who says she's just trying to avoid "icky het":As to the people saying that I made it because I didn't want to see "icky het", well, that would be a bit hypocritical of me, seeing as though I am in fact a heterosexual woman with an absolutely amazing boyfriend. I personally have nothing against het, in fact I quite enjoy reading it, I do however prefer yaoi. 'Cause let's face it, the things I read in het fanfics I could just do with my boyfriend and it would be a lot more gratifying.
HA HA HA HA HA. ♥ OH THAT IS FABULOUS.
Anyway then we got distracted by the kink meme itself."Please, stop." Tyki hated how he sounded so weak and pathetic as Allen lubricated his fingers. The exorcist smiled reassuringly at the older man, slipping his finger between the other's legs and gently pressing it into him.
The dark haired man whimpered as he felt something invade his body. No matter how many times it happened, he still hated it. Lenalee murmured soft nothings to him and Tyki was barely aware that Lavi and Kanda had gripped his forearms, preventing him from trashing.
Fuck you, fandom, fuck you for being so funny.

LOL JOURNALFEN LOL
NO ONE READS MY JF
I should rant on LJ but I'm paranoid it'll be found and also I'm a huge bitch. I mean I could just lock it, but I hate locking things. Also no one cares. :(
But my pain is funny.
So about three weeks ago I picked up Devit from D.Gray-man over at Camp Fuck You Die
, which has been hilarious and spectacular and this has nothing to do with that game.
I've only known DGM for like. Two months now. And I dove into stalking the fandom eagerly, mostly because it's a huge fucking train wreck. SERIOUSLY, it's absolutely awful, and I love awful fandoms. It's even worse than Reborn and Negima and possibly on a par with Death Note. IT'S AMAZING.
So one thing I like to do when I actually have a roleplay journal for a character is start stalking that fandom's Dressing Room, if it exists. I guess I shouldn't assume that everyone here knows what a Dressing Room is, EVEN THOUGH YOU TOTALLY DO! Basically it's a roleplay community where anyone can come fuck around without apping, doubles of characters are allowed, AU versions are allowed, etc. They are sometimes cesspools of wank and almost ALWAYS cesspools of horrible RP. And the DGM dressing room i-is. Almost the worst I've seen, ever. It's just post after post of the most bizarre AU characters you can think of. "Hay guyz this is my version of Kanda who is a pregnant cat from Discworld!" And so on. Okay so that's an exaggeration only in that I'm combining three DIFFERENT versions of characters, but still.
Anyway, I stalk this dressing room fearfully. I rarely play in it--I go into the Reborn one semi-often because while I don't like every style of RP that shows up there, there's plenty to do even if you avoid half the posts. But with the DGM one, I can wait like five days at a time before a single post pops up that I would even DREAM of getting anywhere near. Do I really want to throw canon!Devit at stupid female teacher Allen with huge tits? NOT REALLY. (And that one IS a real character.)
There aren't many Devits there. When I picked up the character, I'd only seen one, in a brief thread. But oddly enough, a few days after I really started stalking the room, a new one
showed up, and I was like "Oh hey! Another Devit, how about that! They should mee--OH GOD WHAT THE FUCK AAAAAAHH"
By which I mean that it was soon clear that this mun was AWFUL. Awwwwwwful. I don't judge roleplayers, okay--well I do, but not in public, hahaha! But no. I mean, if someone has a different take on a character? Yeah, it happens. If they like a style I don't? Eh! And I'm paranoid about my own play, it's true. So I feel wrong, most of the time, calling anyone a BAD roleplayer, even if I read their threads and go "Wow I don't think that character is like that, no sir." But in this case. No. THIS MUN IS BAD. I don't even MEAN her ICness; that's bad too, but that's SECONDARY to her badness. I mean that she does not understand how to roleplay. She's new to it, she says, but . . . I don't think there's any . . . excuse for some. Things. Such as using "LOL" in a thread outside of action tags.
I actually was not masochistic enough to play with her, and that's saying a lot. A LOT. Because I am a masochist. You know how in games people say "No one would comment to you if they didn't like you?" That's not true, because I exist! But even I was like. Wow no. I'm not subjecting myself to that, I would have no idea how to play off of it.
BUT THEN THE DECISION WAS MADE FOR ME! Other Devit jumped ME in a post I'd commented to, and I was like "Well gosh, what's done is done, I admit I've been morbidly curious, and obviously she needs some practice anyway and she seems like a nice person, just Doing It Wrong. Very wrong. What the hell, I'll thread with her a little, I don't want to just IGNORE her."NO words.
I think my favorite part other than the emoticons is where I do the double-comment thing and the first comment is in italics because he is screaming,
and she replies to both, with the reply to the first comment also in italics for absolutely no reason other than the fact that mine was. HOW DO YOU MISUNDERSTAND WHAT ITALICS MEAN. This isn't a matter of being new to roleplay, it's like, LITERACY sob sob.

DEAR CAMPFUCKUDIE PLZ TO BE MAILING ACCEPTANCE LETTER NOW.
SEKRIT MESSAGE FOR SNACKY:
Nicodemus always knows what pushes my buttons! The other day he came up behind me as I was reading some choice Malfoycest rimming and I knew just what he had in mind! Unfortunately he had just been exposed to a bottle of Lysol and I broke out in a hideous rash just as he climaxed. I hadn't even known he was in yet.

So I'm doing a big poll about dream experience over on my LJ. It's 12 questions, goes pretty quickly and my friend and I would really like as many answers as possible, so I'm pimping it here.So go here and do it, hors!
We'd both really appreciate it if you did. Besides, we know everyone sekritly loves to talk about their dreams even if nobody else wants to listen. WELL I WANT TO. Do the poll, comment with, uh, commentary, or funny dream stories if you like. Just do it!
If any wacky BNF friends of mine *coff coff* out there want to pimp it too, I'd be most grateful. My LJ doesn't get a lot of readership at all so I need all the help I can get. A girl can only do so much! Sob!

OH DUDE another Marcus Madison column went up! This guy's gibberish is downright addictive, I swear.
The way some things change they change the way they have a tendency to stay the same. This tends to be the sentiment when it comes to writers for the WWE recently. In fact things have been so similar in fact that both brands are offering the same feud on both programs.
I'm honestly not sure, dude.
hit with a chair shot to the head that was comparable to that of a potato gun going off in someones groin.
Throughout the entire match all that could be heard from Heidenreich were grunts. It was reminiscent of Heidenreichs not so decent proposition for Michael Cole.
I don't think he meant for that to come out the way it did . . .
The whole idea of the throwaway feud is that does nothing for anyone involved but what it do was changed who both a heel and face approach things with a whole new outlook. Unlike gravity, this managed to have a completely different affect in that what was meant to come down could only go up.
NO SERIOUSLY YOU NEED TO REREAD WHAT YOU'VE WRITTEN BEFORE SUBMITTING IT.
Shackle less chains
That's just the title of one of the "sections" of his column. Oookay then.
Oh and here's how he signs off:
The Truth beyond the Equinox
I should really e-mail him sometime and explain to him that he needs an editor, but where would the fun in that be?

I love this Marcus Madison guy on The Oratory (wrestling column website). He writes this unbearably pretentious and loooong column called Solstice Scriptures, and sometimes he likes to pepper them with equally pretentious quotes to illustrate his ELITENESS, but what he actually writes makes no sense at all. It's just like a bunch of words thrown together in something not quite touching the right order--I've never seen anything like it. If you skim it it almost looks like English, but it seriously is just word salad. Ob-zur-ov:
Much like the monster in the picture there was a need for there to be someone was more then picture of someone that looked the part but didnt fit the part. When he first began his start in the professional wrestling industry he needed to be molded by finding someone that would help to sculpt him from mere mass to a masterpiece. It was oddly enough someone that was his character.
That's just gibberish, though! "There was a need for there to be someone was more then picture of someone that looked the part but didnt fit the part." Come on!
In Ohio Valley Wrestling for as successful as he was Dave still was missing something. While with the company he underwent another transformation. At 6-foot-5, 317 ibs he apparently needed to strike more fear then any creature mythical or otherwise would be in fear of.
What we see now is someone whose patience appears to where thin and when his blows it as though he has taken all he can take and will not take anymore.

i guess you could say she was a sex fiend
What is it about FW and my sex life? Last New Year's Eve I go off for a lovely all-nighter at her place and miss that big wank where the girl was trolling herself and got called on it, and last night I go off and then I come back today and in the 24 hours I've been gone shagging fandom_wank
has been killed and revived and there's a new one and my flist is 5 pages long and shit like that. Meh--looks like it was fun while it lasted and I missed every last bit of it but on the other hand I got really good sex and vintage Nintendo games and Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Coldstone Creamery so I'm not complaining. I do however like to think I am the last one on any of your flists to have noticed that it was gone at all.
That said, you guys, deoridhe
SO did it. Nyahahah!
Speaking of Deo-chan and my girlfriend--heh. Deo and I were having a great conversation about Gundam Wing fandom somewhere and she mentioned that her and some friends had roleplayed the characters. It got me to thinking about the silly, private roleplay my GF and I had going when we first became friends. It was the stuff of Bad RPer, horrible Mary Sue, Canon Rape mock communities but damn if it wasn't hilarious and a blast to do.
Basically, we decided to do a send-up of the horrible fanons of every anime we were into, because we'd been reading fic (some by our own friends--ouch) and were horrified by what we had seen. So the premise was that she and I were these all-powerful Goddesses who had taken twisted, bastardized fanon versions of every male anime character we liked and thrown them into a parallel universe where they were all forced to live together under one roof, where we watched their antics (read: slash relationships) while never getting involved, which I like to think stopped the blatant self-insertion from being annoying as all hell. I might mention that this was before shows like Big Brother existed (although The Real World was a definite precedent).
It started out as all anime and gaming fandoms (and some comics too, Sandman chief among them) but it soon became obvious that above all else this was The Gundam Wing and Sorcerer Hunters Show
, along with Fisheye from Sailor Moon. Other characters would pop in and out but we felt the most comfortable writing these guys, probably because the Gundam Wing fanon is so uniform at times that it's almost like a canon in and of itself and the same is true of SH. And yes, our parody was horrible and gratuitous and in script format and like something you'd find on FF.net along with the excuse "I WUZ ON SUGER HI!" but I miss writing it, because it's fun to just let that fannish stuff out of you once in awhile. And I still think of of the one-liners were funny as hell, I really do.
So in our version of Gundam Wing, Treize is a multi-billionaire sugar daddy and Zechs is his prissy trophy wife, although Treize continually "tricks" Wufei into sleeping with him ("Curse you, Khushrenada! Fool me once, shame on you, fool me 34 times . . . "). This only vaguely upsets Zechs who finds solace in the arms of his own lover Char (who is from another Gundam series I've never seen) until Treize buys him fancy jewelry to placate him.
Meanwhile, Quatre clings desperately to his lover Trowa, who never speaks a word (" . . . ") and isn't that interested in him but uses him for sex. We don't know what Quatre is using Trowa for because Quatre can get sex from anyone else in the house and often does so, before running back to Trowa wailing effeminately and blathering on about their One True Love.
Duo and Heero of course are a couple and Duo is a violent and jealous boyfriend who assumes everyone is hitting on Heero if they do so much as say his name. Of course nobody is ever hitting on Heero, who also doesn't speak (" . . . "), but Duo beats them up anyway. Heero ignores him and, in the dead of night, sneaks down to the kitchens clad in an apron and a mask and nothing else and becomes the MASKED CHEF! who cooks for the entire house of bishounen. Somehow nobody ever discovers who is behind the mask.
Fisheye and Mille Feuille (from Sorcerer Hunters) videotape everything and sell it on PPV to anyone in the house who hasn't been getting laid recently, most notably Gateau, whose penchant for making all his lovers dress like Marron tends to turn people off. Fisheye also teaches a sexual education class which Quatre does unreasonably well in.
We thought we had made up the Slutty Quatre fanon, but it turns out there are doujinshi all over Japan where Quatre fucks everyone, because apparently it's a stereotype of the Japanese that Arabic men are sluts. Interesting, eh?
Anyway, I was just reminiscing and thought I'd share. I ended up borrowing the series--well, most of it, discs 1-6, 9 and Endless Waltz--from Kayleigh (much-aforementioned girlfriend) when I saw her last night so I need to have a marathon. I have a friend named Ruth (not wizzard
) who has a tradition where once a year she and a friend get together and stay up all night and watch the whole damn thing, right in a row. That scares me.
I have a wallpaper I made while fiddling in PS and thinking about all that the other day, but Brinkster is being a fucking wanker to me right now. I'll try uploading again tomorrow.
It's nice to use this journal sometimes. I don't think this is the kind of thing I would post over on LJ just because a lot of my flist over there either already knows it or is totally uninterested. Very different crowd over here.

Oh Barbara you hoor!
Remember that contest I mentioned way back when where the woman was offering people a phone call from her as the prize?She's finally posted the contest
, if anyone's amused by that kind of thing. It's not an essay this time around but unsurprisingly it's all about HER and things nobody could ever possibly know about HER but she wants to create artificial interest in anyway.
Honestly, is it just me or does this whole thing boil down to "the more you talk to me, the better your chances of talking to me?"

Have gone on minor friending spree because I was fiddling with settings yesterday and realized there were a few of you I have been meaning to friend for a really long time but had forgotten (or one of you I thought I already had friended and apparently hadn't). So, if you've been friended suddenly, it's because I wuuuuv you!

Where are people getting the pictures of the girl who plays Pansy Parkinson in the HP movies? I'd really like to see a bigger version than the one in the icon that get used around FW once in awhile.
she looks cute
Google image search was no help. I'll have my icon hor take to her!
Ehehehe, a few months ago I read an X-Men Evo. fic where the author needed help thinking of a title, and I suggested one which she ended up choosing. To thank me she is gifting me with a fic of my choice, and since I am a sick hor (and apparently like torturing innocent authors) I asked for a Magneto/Pietro story. Must scar hoorofcrowley
with it when it's done.

cross-posted to my LJ
Because it's IMPORTANT OMG!
Well, I'm on the Internet, which is a huge surprise to me. We've spent something like 7 hours today trying to get our DSL hooked up to Gateau, and it's so not happening. The tech support people don't know what's wrong, but they suggest all our problems would vanish if we use Gateau's Ethernet port instead of the USB port--only Gateau doesn't HAVE an Ethernet port. So there goes that, and possibly everything else. If they make us pay the $200 "you backed out of our one-year agreement" fee when their shit doesn't work like it's supposed to, I think we all will have some screaming to do.
But I'm not on Compuserve either, because one of the things tech support made us do while trying to get the DSL to work is reinstall Windows. Which means Gateau has lost everything, including CS. EVERYTHING. Like, oh, Photoshop. Remiel still has PS, so I guess I will be doing all my manipping on him now. Also lost--everything I've ever DONE in Photoshop on Gateau. Every single wallpaper (except that last Mamimi which I did on Remiel, and an extremely bad version of Rikku which is up on Photobucket, and thankfully my favorite Goku wallpaper which is still uploaded to Brinkster AFAIK). So people, if you have any of my files saved to your hard drive--I'm looking at Chere and Cheeks especially since they get IMed the "good" versions before I upload them--let me know, and for the love of Krishna DON'T DELETE THEM! Sniffle. I want my stuff, dammit.
So where am I? On Remiel--after my brother stormed out of the house after his 7 hours of frustration (I almost forgive him for throwing the phone at my arm earlier, he tried so very hard), I snuck off to my room with the equipment, and of course everything works just dandy in here. Remiel does have an Ethernet port, but I think it'd work fine even if it didn't. I have the feeling Gateau, and not SBC or the location of our house or our phone lines, is to blame for nothing working. He's just too old and slow, and Windows 98 isn't cutting it anymore, but he doesn't have enough memory for XP. I wonder if buying him some more and installing XP would help anything.
It feels so weird to be on the laptop . . .
Anyway. So. I don't know what's going on. I don't think I'll be able to keep Remiel online, unless by some miracle we can either hook up Gateau OR wirelessly connect him to Remiel. Keeping Remiel and Gateau online on separate ISPs would mean an extra $25 a month, which I don't think we can afford. I would be on Gateau right now only CS has been uninstalled, and I'm not sure where the installation CD is or even if we HAVE one for the latest version--I have a sneaking suspicion we don't. Of course until the end of the month we're still contracted to CS, so they can and would have to send us a new CD, but I don't know how long that will take.
Which means this might be radio midnight for a few days. Then again, it might not--things might work out with SBC, or we might find the CS installer, etc., etc. I could be online in, like, half an hour for all I know--or it could be a few days, if CS has to send us something or anything like that, or if it turns out we can use the DSL service but need to install something else/buy more shit/have someone come out and hook something up/promise my firstborn child to Satan. My CS address should be active through the end of the month, so continue using that, because I'm not sure whether the SBC address (email@example.com, FWIW) is sticking around for any longer than tonight. And hopefully I'll see you all soon.
*will feel silly if everything works out tonight, heh*
Oh, BTW--my birthday's actually on Sunday, not Saturday. I'm such an ass, I gave the wrong day in my comments, hee. So happy birthday to me! Er, kinda, maybe.

FunImation will finally be releasing uncut versions of Shaman King and Yu-Gi-Oh!
The Shaman King DVDs will apparently have both subbed and dubbed versions, but the dub will still have the names from the American version. Not sure if the Yu-Gi-Oh DVDs will include a dubbed version.
The first of these uncut DVDs are due out October 19 and will contain three episodes each from about $19.98 USD. The release schedule will be dependant on sales.
This is great news for all you Yu-Gi-Oh and Shaman King fans. Both series lacked an official release of the Japanese version, which made fans wary to buy the dubbed DVDs. This finally gives many fans a chance to even see the Japanese version, since the dub was all that was available.
OMG such a geek. I cheered, heh. Although I bet I will still buy the bootleg boxsets because--$20 for 3 eps? Pfft. It's better than FLCL but still, that's getting a bit up there. Especially since the series is what, 5 billion episodes long.
Unfortunately the person who posted this particular article only credited it as "from a site" (wtf?), but I've seen it confirmed in a few other places since then and supposedly Yugi's voice actor has also claimed it was true. Grain of salt I guess.
My lovely girl, who will have a Journalfen as soon as we get a code for her, decided that for my birthday I needed some really scarring fanfiction, written by her! It's ATHF smut no less, and it is the most horrifying thing I've ever read. It's one of those stories that is a lot worse because it's actually well-written. It'd just be too EASY to write something like "lolz so liek meatwod wuz hornee 1 night he go 2 frylocke's rum" and she didn't cop out by doing that which makes me ph33r her! If she posts it anywhere, which I think she will tonight, I'll link it here. It's hilariously wrong.
Speaking of hilariously wrong, last night I finally read the story Todd McFarlane wrote to accompany those horrific Twisted Wizard of Oz figures he designed. Ugh. Talk about sick-ass masturbatory fodder.

and I have been posting random comments to each other around FW about eating turkey and shit like that, heh.
I'm thinking of posting to fandom_rant or something--I wouldn't post it to FW because I have nothing to link to, and we're probably overreacting about it, but there's this person on a Buffy message board called The Alt Bronze (which is a fucking wanky place in and of itself) whom we both think is the most stuck-up egotistical twit we have ever met, and it's her we're making fun of.
This woman goes by several names but the two I can think of right now are Barbara and Phaedra. The other one is Milksop or something, it's from Watership Down
. She's having a Bronze-wide contest, you see. You have to write an essay for her. And the prize? Is a long-distance phone call from her. And no, she won't be paying the charges, you're just winning the PRIVILEGE of talking to her.
So that's not so wanky, but that's not all this woman does. She's also had a Thanksgiving contest for the past two years running where you, yet again, have to write her an essay. And the prize is flying out to eat Thanksgiving dinner with her and her family. Only, no, she's not paying for your plane ticket. And you can't stay at her house, especially not if you're male. She doesn't pay for anything. What you "win" is the PRIVILEGE of spending hundreds of dollars on tickets and room and board so you can eat Thanksgiving dinner with this random lady instead of your family. Okay then.
That's not even all. Last year, someone actually won the Thanksgiving contest, and they bought their tickets and hotel room and everything. And then she canceled on him at the last minute! She said he couldn't come visit her on Thanksgiving, and the tickets were non-refundable, and she didn't offer to reimburse him or anything like that.
So when she recently announced this "win the privilege of hearing my melodious voice, all expenses unpaid" contest, Cheeks (hoorofcrowley) and I had a wanky giggling fit at HER expense, and now we can't stop making jokes about it. Because honestly, dude. People have expressed interest in the contests too and I don't know who's stupider, someone who would create an essay contest with a prize the "winner" actually had to PAY for, or someone who would actually submit an essay. Jesus.
(Oh, and the first year of the Thanksgiving contest, Barbara's internet boyfriend won and came to eat with her, having to fly overseas to do so--but AFAIK he still wasn't allowed to stay in her house.)
