Ok, so the NEW Mario & Luigi game has FINALLY been released in Japan, AND GUESS WHAT!!! FAWFUL IS THE MAIN ANTAGONIST!!!
ever since the new game was announced, there's been TONS of fan speculation about whether or not Fawful would be in it. at first, it was just like: "if you look closely at this reeeeeally blurry zoomed in screenshot, you can see a red and green blur flying across the sky. could this be fawful!?!?
but now that it's been released in Japan, IT'S BEEN confirmed!!!!
sigh... i've been playing Mario & Luigi: SuperStar Saga all morning now. stopping only to draw fanart...
hey liv, do you know when the games being released here in america?
yo! i exist! well, i do, just not so much on this site. sorry about that...
anyway, this is what i've been up to!
StarTrek and Neopets!
okie day, about the Star Trek part... ok, so me and my sister are avid Sci-fi FANATICS!! seriously! but we recently realized that we hadn't watched the original series of StarTrek! how sinful! here we are, CLAIMING to be sci-fi fangirls, when we hadn't even watched the show that started the entire genre! come on! but the REALLY funny thing, is that StarTrek started practically EVERYTHING! not just Sci-fi!
ok, get this: the first slash fanfic to EVER be published was Kirk/Spock. i am NOT a slash fan! don't get me wrong! i HATE it the passion of a thousand suns! but, come on, that's hilarious! the slash term came about with StarTrek too! oi!
another thing that StarTrek started, was the plague many have come to know as "Mary Sues." that was another thing! the term "mary sue" was dubbed for the stereo-typical, perfect, beautiful, 15 year old, female OC's found in Trek fanfiction!
anyway, the second part of this blog post is to say that i have recently become re-addicted to Neopets! i used to get on Neopets when i was littler, but after a while, i just sort of stopped. now, who knows how many years later, i've gotten back to it! i started a new account -- i had NO idea what my old one was -- and accidently adopted twins! don't ask.
but it's true! i have TWINS! they're both boys, and they're AMAZING! they're names are Ayushin and Ayumouro. i love them so much! the picture i just posted in the FanArt section is off Ayushin.
anyway, that's all for now!
for one, yes! i do exist!
anyway... i come to you today to inform you that.... stargate atlantis has.... died. not only because this is the last season... but because the writing has TANKED.
AND IT'S ALL DR. JENNIFER KELLER'S FAULT!!!! ALL HER FAULT!!!! I SEE HER, AND I AM FILLED WITH HATRED AND DESPAIR!!!!!!! I HATE HER!!!!
i have NEVER!!! NEVER!!!! hated someone as much as HER!!! she... is.... EVIL!!
*deep breath* okay... Unlike Stargate SG-1 (who came before Stargate Atlantis), Atlantis is DIEING. SG-1 ran for TEN YEARS. and was filled with epic epic epic. and even after the show, they end the series with two, awesom, kick-butt movies! in other words, SG-1 went out with a BANG.
Stargate Atlantis on the other hand... is crawling off into a ditch and slowly dieing. this makes me so sad. I don't know why, but i have ALWAYS loved Atlantis more than SG-1. perhaps it's because i've been watching it from the very beginning... five year ago... i've seen the characters develop into who they are now. i've SEEN the arrogant, egotistical, Dr.Rodney McKay step up to the plate for the lives of his team.
and Dr. Keller is ruining everything.
When Dr. Carson Beckett was killed in an explosion, Jennifer Keller replaced him as Chied Medical Officer. i CRIED when Carson died. he was the best doctor the Stargate franchise had ever had (except for maybe Dr. Fraiser *takes off hat* God rest her soul. she died too). and when Keller took over... she ruined the show for me, my sister, and my entire family.
first off: unlike the other characters in SGA, she has ZERO depth. all she EVER does is complain about how inadequate she is. "oh rodney... how do you guys do it? i'm just not cut out for this..."
that's another thing. she's going out with Rodney. RODNEY. the "hopeless bachelor." normally, i would NOT get angry about this. but she is RUINING him . ALONG WITH EVERYTHING ELSE.
Rodney is an egostitical, petty, aroogant, S.O.B.!!! he is a JERK!!
but Keller is making him LIKEABLE. he is the guy we love to hate! now, i GUESS you could say that she is changing him for the better, but she's NOT! the writers are writing a nice rodney WRONG!!! and just because he's datiing someone would NOT magically make him a perfect person!!! it's as if ALL of his characters faults have DISAPPEARED. it's wrong.
Keller has SUCKED out ALL of the joy i used to get from Stargate Atlantis. the way i acted at lunch sometimes... i could rat for HOURS on how much i loved McKay... but now all that i can rant about is how much keller is RUINING McKay.
the only joy i can get out of Stargate Atlantis, is by watching the old episodes. before keller came in.
and that truly depresses me.
anyway, obviously, this has been a depressed ranting. i don't have very many of those. but it needed to be said. so i've done my speel... how do you spell that word? spleal speal... oh well!
now i'm off to go grab my Stargate mug, coffee, and watch some of the good Stargate Atlantis episodes.
first of all, i would like to state that i thoroughly disgust myself.
ok, so me and a WHOLE bunch of school buddies went to go see Twilight yesterday!! TONS of people from my school were there! we filled up an entire row! it was great! i sat next to Livi, and Moolatte was sitting a couples seats past us. it was my second time going to go see it, but it seemed so much BETTER!!!! I love Carlisle so frikken much!!! HE'S SO SEXYGOURGEOUSHANDSOMEHAWT!!! I LOVE HIM!!!
I SQUEE FOR YOU CARLISLE!!! I SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
sigh... now that that's out of my system... i'm of to go steal some Turkey!
HAPPY TURKEY DAY EVERYBODY!!!
I started it this morning, skipped EVERY SINGLE ONE of my meals, and finished it this night!
I LOVE IT!!! i would like to thank my mom and moolatte for hounding me until i finally read the book!! and now i have a NEW fandom!!
....sigh.... i still can't believe i ACTUALLY read it... i disgust myself sometimes.... but hey! at least i'm hopped up on SQUEE!!
holy crap i'm hooked!
im sure ALL of you guys have heard of the movie coming out for the ever popular book series "Twilight"? yeah, well guess what. ALL the girls in my class are OBSESSED with it. But i was determined NOT to read it. why? because! i've NEVER been a big fan of romance novels! it practically goes against every fiber in my being!
but... i've succumbed... and NOT because of the girls in my class, BUT BECAUSE OF MY MOM. no joke! i'm dead serious! my mom has finished the first two books in about, oh, six days. she has been riding me and saying, "oh, but shannon, you'll love it! you're OBSESSED with werewolves and vampires!" Not so much vampires, just werewolvs. anyway, mom got to talking about Jacob Black, the werewolf in the series. and i absolutely fell in love with him! it's crazy! just hearing about HIM made me want to read the series! stupid right? anyway, so that same morning (this morning) i started the first book. AND I HAVEN'T PUT IT DOWN. it's insane! but i love it so much!! i just can't stop!!
GRR!! MOOLATTE!! HURRY UP AND LEAVE A COMMENT! I NEED TO RANT ABOUT IT TO A FELLOW FANGIRL!!!
yo my freaky darlings!
can't chat for long, but i finally managed to get some time on the computer!! hallelujah!!
i knows that theres a lot i need to do, but i REALLY needed to update my blog! zanna, i'll get to your new site as soon as i can!
but just to give you a quick update on how it is back home, it's all good! i just came back from my HS band concert (our WORST one yet) and cheer practices for my school have started! it REALLY throws a wrench into my Devil Ray schedule, but i want to cheer for my school for the sake of cheering for my school. and for those of you know what i'm talking about and why it's so bad: I CAN'T GO TO THE MOUNT PARON GAME!!! seriously! i have a Devil Ray competition over that game! so i have to miss it! but not only am i missing my FIRST high school mount paron game, im my sister's LAST mount paron game!! she's a senior now!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! it makes me so sad!!
and for those of you who don't know, the reason i haven't been able to get as frequently as i usually do, is because the interent on my laptop DIED!! so now i'm having to sneak on the family computer whenever my brother's not on it!! which is practically never. oh, and to make matters worse, MY ZUNE DIED (for you losers out there, a Zune is lika an I-Pod, but way cooler)!! i think it's because i got it when it FIRST came out, so it's having problems synching with all the uber updates that the zune software has gone through over the past few months. so not only do i not have internet, i don't have music!! and i like JUST fell on love with Onerepublic!! grr! and on that note: go to youtube and look up these songs by onerepublic:
-All Fall Down
-Mercy (this one makes me think of Roake and Daiyori, from Daiyori's POV)
and now my moms yelling at me to go to bed! i should probably do that!
but you guys HAVE to look up those songs! there's only three, and they're all on youtube! so go! be off! and fall in love with Onerep
Yo! and heeeeeello my cheeky darlings!
i just felt posting a random blog entry! yaaaaaaay random!!
.........................................what? were you actually expecting an actual update or something? pffsh... what morons...
Komasu: (holding multiple rolls of streamers) Where do i put these?
Durithyll: (going through boxes sitting on kitchen counter) just set 'em over there.
(The Apartment is filled with party supplies and decorations. Rolls of streamers and bags of confetti dot the floor and cover every available space on the furniture. Durithyll and Komasu are currently the only ones in the Apartment.)
Komasu: (stacks the rolls on the floor next to the bar stools.) when's Jacob getting back with the ---
KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK
Durithyll: that's probably him. get the door will ya?
Komasu: (walks over to the door)
BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM
Komasu: (covering her ears) i got it!! will you quit kicking the door!? (quickly opens the door with a slight vexed expression)
Jacob: (has his leg pulled back and ready for another kick) oh. sorry. wasn't sure if you heard.
Komasu: (sighs and moves out of the way, allowing Jacob to come in)
Jacob: special delivery! one cake for an Armless Nazi?
Durithyll: (smacks him in the back of the head) not on his birthday. (grabs the cake from him) oh!! i love it!! it's huge!
Jacob: exactly! which means there'll be more for me!
Jacob: i mean Daiyori...
Komasu: i'll put the cake in the fridge... (takes it from Durithyll) Is Zatannii going to show up?
Durithyll: yeah! he just has to come a bit - -
Jacob: WHAT!? YOU INVITED HIM!?! WHY!!
Durithyll: because he's a friend?
Jacob: WHAT!? HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT!? HE'S ZATANNII!! THE SADISTIC HOMICIDAL WHACK JOB!!!
Durithyll: (tosses a roll of streamers into Jacob's arms) put these someplace nice.
Jacob: (glares and mumbles as he stalks off to the closet to find the ladder) stupid computer...
Durithyll: (reaches into one of the boxes and pulls out two rolls of duct tape; tosses one to Komasu) here. we can go ahead and start on the streamers too.
Komasu: (fumbles the catch but doesn't drop it) o-ok.
Durithyll: (grabs a roll of streamers and flies up to the roof) i was thinking we could wrap it around the pole of the fan and then tape it the roof in intervals so it droops and stuff, and then just let it hang down the walls. sound good?
Komasu: sure. (flies up after Durithyll and starts wrapping the streamers around the pole)
Daiyori: what was the point of going to the grocery store? We just went a few days ago.
Roake: something about Jacob eating everything. wouldn't put it past him.
Daiyori: hmph. porker.
(Roake and Daiyori are just coming back from the grocery store, Roake carrying two bags in each hand.)
----------Back at the Apartment----------
(Everyone is almost done getting everything ready)
Jacob: (straightening up random furniture from when it got shifted during the preparations and such) you know, i really didn't think it would be that easy to get Daiyori out of the house. I figured we'd have to pretty much bribe him and end up spoiling the entire thing. i mean, come on! we didn't even have to ask him! All we had to do was ask Roake to go the grocery store and Daiyori just tagged along!
Durithyll: (smiles) just makes my job easier. i couldn't properly lie if my life depended on it.
Jacob: boy aint that the truth.
Jacob: sorry. i guess Daiyori's just a bad influence.
----------Inside the apartment complex----------
Roake: (punches the button for the elevator and waits for the doors to open)
Daiyori: (pokes his head in the bag to try and see what's inside)
Roake: (pulls the bag away quickly)
Daiyori: hmph. what was up with the tenderloin? isn't that a bit expensive?
Roake: (sends up a silent prayer as the doors open) come on.
Daiyori: (looks at him suspiciously but follows him inside the elevator)
Roake: ("There is no way he doesn't suspect a surprise birthday party... Durithyll's not very good at hiding her excitement. at all.) sigh (For someone whose so good at reading other people... he can be so oblivious...")
Daiyori: ("He's hiding something...")
(the Elevator doors slowly open to their floor)
------------Inside the Apartment----------
Komasu: i think i heard the elevator doors...
Durithyll: HIDE!! (runs to the light switch and flicks it off)
Jacob: hey! (stumbling around in the dark) couldn't you at least given me a chance to hide fir - -
Durithyll: (grabs his arm and pulls him behind the couch)
----------Right outside the Apartment door-----------
Roake: (rattles the keys inside the lock very loudly, trying to give Durithyll as much of a heads up a possible)
Daiyori: (glances over at Roake)
Roake: (turns the key and opens the door)
Daiyori: (pokes his head inside) hey... why are the lights off? (slithers inside)
Roake: (smiles, and step inside behind him)
Daiyori: hey! what's going--
Durithyll, Jacob, and Komasu: SURPRISE!!!
Daiyori: (completely taken back)
Roake: (pats him on the head) Happy Birthday Daiyori. From all of us.
Daiyori: what... wha...
Durithyll: (leaps over the back of the couch) you didn't think we'd have forgotten did you?
Daiyori: I'd almost forgotten... how did you find out anyway?
Durithyll: (looking very smug) well... i have my ways...
Jacob: she begged Boredom. a lot.
Daiyori: and she actually told you?
Durithyll: no... i had to ask Finale... but i still found out!!
Daiyori: i can't believe you guys did all this... i...
Jacob: don't get all mushy on us here. it'd be freaky.
Daiyori: hey! - -
Durithyll: yo! we're here to celebrate, remember!? lets get this party started!!
Zatannii: (walks in the still open door) without me?
Durithyll: Zatannii! i almost though you weren't---
Boredom: (slips in) and what about me?
----------A few hours later----------
After a few... interesting rounds of twister, Halo (which Zatannii was dominating at), and completely stuffing their faces full of food, the party began to wind down. It's now around 3:00 AM and everyone has completely crashed, except Daiyori.
Jacob is sprawled over the floor in between the coffee table and the couch. Durithyll is sleeping on her side facing the back of the couch; wings open and all over Komasu. Zatannii is sitting up and leaning against the wall, arms folded over his chest and legs splayed out in front of him, currently in an "inefficient form of recharge."
Boredom hadn't stayed the night. She had left a few hours prior, and while she would never admit it, had enjoyed herself. Especially when Zatannii brought out the karaoke machine.
Daiyori had sprawled himself over about two thirds of the couch, Roake neatly taking up the rest. Roake slept in a sitting position, his head resting on his fist, which was in turn being supported by the arm of the couch. Daiyori smirked to himself when he thought of the horrible crick Roake would have come morning.
Daiyori found the silence comforting. Surrounded by the people he loved, although he would never admit it, was nice. He honestly had forgotten his birthday. It just wasn't something that was really important with his tribe. Manhood wasn't determined by number of years, but by how well you flew.
Daiyori winced at the thought of flight, but didn't linger on it. Looking around at the people he was surrounded by, he let an honest smile grace his lips. It felt good to smile, not to smirk or smile condescendingly, but to smile out of sheer happiness.
That was what he was - - happy. For the first time, in a long time, he was truly happy. He felt that he could take anything fate could throw at them, so long as they were together.
Daiyori stretched to his full length, he tail resting on top of Roake's foot. Relaxing, he sunk down further into the couch, and allowed sleep to take him. He smiled, one more time, knowing full well that he'd have to be a jerk again come morning.
But it was alright. Because they understood. They were his friends. And they'd always be there.
ME AND MY SISTER WENT TO DRAGON*CON ON SATURDAY!!
Ok, for those of you who AREN'T pathetic little fangirls, or actually have lives, Dragon*Con is a geektastic convention!! it's a yearly thing, and only hits the BIGGEST cities, and only for THREE days. so if you can go, you gotta go!! It's the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US!! at least, thats what their site said. and i believe them!!
anyway, so we (me, Kanirou, mom, and dad) woke up at 5:00 in the morning, drove to Altanta, hoped on the closest MARTA train, and went to Dragon*Con!!
It was absolutely AMAZING!! We saw TONS of Clone Troopers, SG Personnel, Umbrella Corp., and some CRAZY others! but the BEST part... was actually MEETING THE STARGATE ACTORS!!! IT WAS AMAZING!!! I ACTUALLY SAW THEM, TALKED WITH THEM, POKED THEM!!! sigh... truly amazing... while, sadly, David Hewlett was not there, David Nykl, Cliff Simon, Beau Bridges, Tori Higginson, and Rainbow Sun Franks were!! While i would've LOVED to meet with all of them in the Autograph room, the top on my list was David Nykl and Cliff Simon! and i met and got my picture taken with BOTH of them!! they were both so nice, it was a truly amazing experience... SQUEE!!
I had so much fun there!! i also took TONS of pictures! obviously... and posted below, are SOME of my favourites! SQUEE!!!
