Don't worry guys, I'm on top of my work, really. I've actually got most of said essay done. This is just for de-stressing. :D

Anyways, anyone who's been a friend of mine for anything remotely resembling any period of time will probably know that if there's anything I post about other than YGO, it's probably Megaman Star Force. Because I am a childish little obsessive gamer.

I ended up replaying all three games over the span of a few months just for some fun, and it turned out I never actually finished the aftergame story for Star Force 3 the first time I played through it. I had needed to get all 150 Standard Battle Cards, and I was short one. So I did it properly this time and got all 150, an' played through the aftergame story.

Part of me wishes I hadn't, the rest of me wishes that I had done this ages ago.
cut for spoilers obviously )

I draw stuff on the back of receipt paper. No seriously. The first two hours of the day are reaaaaally slow, and I have to look busy to make a good impression on customers and/or bosses. Usually the drawings get lost or are unfinished or get messed up, but I have managed to rediscover four old ones (I think one of the papers is actually starting to yellow a little) of none other than the little chibi EvilGods!Satisfaction verse. The work isn't my best, considering all I had was a ball-ink pen and so everything is a bit sketchy and skewed. Usually I draw stuff in pencil first XD. But they're cute enough to warrant a distraction.

oh hai so I'm actually doing a writer's block wat

It's a contest between two.


"Happy families are all alike, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

-Anna Karenina

It's a statement that I find rather intriguing, it reflects a fascination with the morbid, and something I personally find reflected in my writing habits. It's just so much easier to write unhappy things because there's so many directions one can go with it and so many vague possibilities around the corner, which at the best, can merely end bittersweet. Happy things, while, they can be fun in their own way, generally end with "and they lived happily ever after, The End." And that's nice and all. But misery loves company and I love misery for company. At least when I'm writing. Misery can leave me alone when I'm off doing work.


"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of good fortune must be in want of a wife."

-Pride and Prejudice

To be honest? I just find this line absolutely hilarious. I mean. It's a great example of Austen's social commentary of the times, and it just exudes humor and wit. It's a line that never fails to make me smile and what keeps bringing me back to my now battered and dog-eared little copy. I almost regret giving said copy to a young friend I'm kind of sort of mentoring aaaaa but she should know this wonderful work :V

Thanks to this thread of stupid cute, [ profile] immicolia and I ended up making some kind of ridiculous verse in which all of Team Satisfaction ended up falling to some evil force one or the other and they all end up being evil gods together, with pics, fics, and all. And for some reason they're about six inches tall. No, I can't explain that bit.

So yeah, of course I'd draw more of them. Mostly because I'm tempted to play one or two of them and so having stuff to icon from would be nice if I did get around to that. 8U

So yeah, that link has the pics and fics mentioned before, so I ain't posting those again. TOO LAZY. 8U

yeah I said I would draw other things beside faibu deezus BUT WHATEVER )

Generally they do this once a year, people come around in the morning and afternoon and the local community cooks up their best dishes and sell them to raise money for the temple. Lots of people who normally wouldn't stop by do, and we occasionally get people who catch what's going on as they pass by and stop in for a snack. It's been getting more and more popular and active every year.

This year it's gotten so popular that they decided to do one in the evening. To make it more appealing, they've even managed to set up a pretty decent looking stage (that we've used for maybe a year now, it's still so new lD) outside, and local kids and adults set up their own little dancing groups, do some traditional dances that occur every now and then in the middle of the auction. Littlest bro's in the children dancing group, and he's one of the best they have, good enough to get a solo dance (with three other kids that were pretty much acting and not really dancing, just moving props, but yeah), and mom's pretty much convinced that now that the dancing group is permanent, she's gonna keep him in that group since he's the only one out of the kids who doesn't have some sort of artistic release. =B

Now, I've always been popular with the younger kids there, but I haven't been going to the temple regularly for a while now since I have to pick up the autistic bro and do schoolwork, so some of the younger kids who barely know me don't really pay me much attention.

Until they found me doodling a pictar of [ profile] kizunaprotector. SUDDENLY I AM POPULAR AGAIN.

So they go on to be impressed with my subpar drawing skills and constantly ask me if I know how to draw other things (to which my response to all of them were: I probably need a reference 8U), and I eventually promised the doodle to one of the kids who was a particularly big fan of 5D's. I had to keep correcting myself all the time because I was always using Japanese names instead of dub names, BUT I LIKE WATCHING THE DUB SO YEAH, GOOD THING I KNEW.

So yeah, I told them I was gonna scan it and then they could have it.

I'm hoping they don't start flooding me with requests the next time I end up there. BV

and now with this post I realize I should probably make an art post today or tomorrow, I have quite the backlog. 8U
