HAPPY KINGDOM HEARTS 3!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay okay I'm a day late on saying that, but I've been playing basically nonstop since it launched!!!! I'm currently at work because I couldn't afford to take more time off, but it's been an amazingly wild ride so far ;w;


Pat made us sea salt ice cream for release day and I feel like this was just a very wholesome moment ♥

I'll have more thoughts later I'm just.....full of feelings but also sleep deprived XD

IT'S ALMOST KH3 TIME!!!!!

I know, I've been playing the Japanese edition since launch, but I'm so fucking excited to be able to understand everything properly!!!! Despite how negatively I usually feel about GameStop, I am pleased that they're doing a 9 pm launch tonight :D Getting it a few hours early~~~~

We didn't quite get to the end of the Japanese version, but we got SO close!! I just don't wanna miss picking it up in English. So Liz, Pat, and I are just sorta...sitting on the couch...waiting..........

Kingdom Hearts 3 Liveblogging: Part 2

I actually took some more pictures of the upcoming worlds!! This liveblog continues to be very spoiler heavy, in both text and visual ways, so click the cut at your own risk!

It's also still in Japanese (obviously...), but I will probably continue this once I get my hands on my English copy on Monday night.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Liveblogging: Part 1

As promised, all spoilers will be under a cut! My understanding of Japanese is very limited, but even with that in mind, there will be plenty of gameplay spoilers and some plot summaries.

For now, all "screencaps" are taken with my phone, since I don't wanna spam my PSN friends with spoilers >< Sorry for the low quality shots!

KINGDOM HEARTS 3

Hey so, it's actually really easy to get a Japanese PSN account and buy stuff from the jp PSN store, so uhhhhhhh....

kh3 on my tv


Anyway, that's what I've been doing for the past day (though unfortunately I'm currently at work, wishing I was at home). I'll be keeping any spoilers under cuts, though don't expect too much from me. I've been the one manning the controller while Liz and Pat watch :D

Also, I haven't been saving most screenshots to my PS4 on the off chance that I accidentally share them with my feed, because I don't want to spoil any of my friends. So I've just been taking pictures.....like it's 2006 all over again, I guess XD

Fandom Snowflake Challenge | Day 14

Day 14 | In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom.

I like to think of myself as an optimistic person, but also a realistic one. I've been on the internet long enough that Anime Web Turnpike was where I found all the hot new websites for my favorite fandoms. So I've seen a lot of ups and downs, migrations, etc.

I worry that with the great Tumblr mess that is going on presently, fandom is becoming disjointed and spread thin. I worry that spaces are becoming less accessible and more restrictive, and that there's no good place for anyone to settle right now. I'm loving Dreamwidth, but I know that it's a hard sell to most people who are used to the simple, fast-paced feeds of tumblr and twitter. I think that pillowfort could be a good alternative, but it's still far too much in beta.

After tumblr banned adult content, I made the decision to quit entirely, keeping my blog up but only using it to occasionally reblog a post with all my contact info on other sites. But now that I'm helping run a big bang, it would be stupid to ignore the huge amount of people who use tumblr as their primary fandom website. So I've resigned myself to going back there at least for that. I hate it, because I hate the policies they have enacted.

But I do have hope that someday fandom has a place online that most everyone can agree on, with policies that don't stifle and lock people out. For me right now, it's Dreamwidth, and I'd love for it to be for awhile. All I know is that I'm willing to try out new places as they show up, with a hope for a brighter fandom future :D

Fandom Snowflake Challenge | Day 13

Day 13 | In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

I've been doing daily and weekly goals so far this year (by...writing them on paper, because I'm an old person), but I do wanna take the time to make a proper list of goals for the entirety of 2019.

  • Write more: I joined [community profile] getyourwordsout and pledged to do 200k words, which sounds like a lot, but I'm pretty confident that I can do it. I do 50k+ during NaNoWriMo, so that's just....150k for the rest of the year... I have some specific goals for writing, too :D

    • Finish A Bit of Blackened Fate. This is my longest fanfic ever and I have th entire thing planned out, I just need to sit down and finish it. I've never finished a chaptered fic before!! I gotta do it!

    • Finish and edit what I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2018. I wrote a decent chunk of an original novel, and I'd like to see that finished. So I guess I gotta make it happen myself XD

    • Open up drabble/one shot requests again, either here or on...tumblr :T I love doing things for others, and some of my best Magi fics were written from prompts/requests.

  • Join more fandom spaces: I've felt a disconnect from fandom over the past year or so, partially because I pulled back from being on tumblr as much and partially because I've been busy with IRL stuff. I miss meeting new people and having fandom discussions! I miss the community of it!! So it's time to rejoin that world XD

  • Make graphics again: A huge part of my early fandom contributions was icons and graphics. Fanfiction was the other part and I've kept up with that, but I don't make icons the way I used to. I already set up a graphics community here on DW, and I plan on updating it at least once or twice a month.

  • Keep my living space cleaner: Can't write shit if there's nowhere to sit down!! Staying organized is an uphill battle for me, but I still want to try. I always feel better when the apartment is cleaner. I currently get most of my writing done at work because it's easier to focus there, and a lot of that stems from how clean it is there compared to at home.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge | Day 12

Day 12 | In your own space, create your own challenge.

So, this one is kind of a double success?? I originally just had plans to start up a 100 icon challenge (similar to iconfiend100) but then my wife decided to run another Magi Big Bang...and of course I'm helping with that!! So here are the challenges I've decided to create/run/whatever:


[community profile] icon100


[community profile] magibigbang


They're in various stages of being set up, but I'm excited!!! I love events...they're stressful to run but also very satisfying, and I love watching everyone have a good time :D I definitely need to do a lot of work on the icon challenge on but like, I did it!! I'm workin!!!

why am I like this

Doing some housekeeping/organization, which means updating my doujin collection spreadsheet, and I'm just like..............why am I like this. Why do I have so many???? I haven't finished updated the exact counts yet because I'm still working on things, but I'm definitely at the 400+ mark now...

There are just a lot of good Magi doujins okay.....

Related, Liz got me some KH doujins for my birthday, and after being delayed for ages, they have finally arrived!!!! :D
