Okay, seriously, Digimon fandom? This shit still matters? Really?

Besides, we all know that the true OTP of Adventure was Taichi/Yamato. The epilogue and any discussion around het pairings are all part of an elaborate cover-up, because the creators had to hide their true preference. And god knows we need the creators to state their intentions in order to validate our ships! Amirite?

In random other news, I'm thinking of maybe getting a tumblr. Anyone else active over there?

So, yesterday I watched an episode of Digimon Xros Wars and an episode of Heroic Age.

Digimon... back to the old character design style, back to a younger group of protagonists, and so far I'm entertained. But, holy crap, are there enough references to Gurren Lagann in there? It just can't be ignored! I mean, the little star guy has Kamina sunglasses and everything!

Anyway, I like it so far and will probably watch more. The main characters are interesting. Right now we've got some character stereotypes with hints of issues, which I'm sure will come out when they do the various character arcs and development. That always happens in Digimon. But I wonder if this one will really catch my interest. The last season to do that was Tamers, although Frontier kinda came close.

We'll see, I guess.

Heroic Age was kind of cool. The character designs are obviously done by the same people who did Gundam Seed. Unlike with GS, I am so far not having any trouble keeping track of the characters. That may change, though. One thing I like - which happens pretty rarely, if ever, in serious mecha series - is the fact that the main protagonist seems like a goofball. He's perky and happy. Of course, near the end of the episode he stops being perky and happy and turns into complete and utter freaky, but I'm hoping some of that perky and happy will come back rather than OMG ANGST because the series is about war (what mecha series isn't?) and having a goofy main character would be a nice way to give me a break from all the serious.

The animation is gorgeous, the music is nice, and the action sequences are lovely. The mecha design for Age is pretty cool, too. I'm also enjoying the plot, but we'll see where that goes and how the characters are handled.

Anyway, I came out of that with two new series to watch while working out, so I'm pretty happy about that. There are 26 episodes in Heroic Age, 9 (so far) in Digimon Xros Wars, and the third Tales of Symphonia OVA episode comes out on Sept 23rd.

So yeah, I'm doing pretty good for now.

Ever take a moment to watch through the Digimon season 1 dub and notice how many things Izzy says that are supposed to sound intelligent, but... aren't?

This person did.

I'm highly amused. Izzy is just awesome. But yeah.
silverthunder: (Sokka - Stop looking at me!)
The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Fandoms I'm willing to write for:

Avatar: The Last Airbender
Hunter X Hunter
Hikaru no Go
Uninhabited Planet Survive
... uh. Maybe some others. Ask and find out. Those ones for sure, though.

I also reserve the right to write the couple you picked in a platonic way if I REALLY don't like the pairing. 'Cause I'm totally unfair like that.

Here's some interesting food for thought for Digimon fans who happen to be familiar with Evangelion (copied from Wiki):

The anime Digimon Tamers reuses many elements of Evangelion; the "Tamers" of Digimon parallel each of the Eva pilots in personality and appearance, and the relationship between the Tamer and their Digimon is almost the same as that of a pilot and their Eva. Unlike the pilots, however, the Tamers do not have such crippling emotional problems; though the depression that Jeri goes through at the loss of her partner is used to power the final antagonist. Like the Angels, Wild Digimon originate in a matterless universe and most create false bodies in order to materialize on Earth. The design asthetics of many of the Digimon parallel those in Evangelion as well. One of the evolutions of the main character's Digimon, WarGrowlmon has the jaw of Unit 01, and seemingly pointless cord on its back which is identical in appearance to the EVA's umbilical cord. Furthermore, the true antagonist of the series, the D-Reaper is heavily based on Rei/Lilith fusion, and seeks to absorb the world in order to eradicate humanity's illogical emotions and negative feelings; the mask of its final form, "Mother D-Reaper, is even based on that of Lilith, and at one point it materializes a giant replica of Jeri's head to attack while the real Jeri is held inside of it, similar to how the Rei/Lilith fusion's mask falls off to reveal Rei's face.

Kind of neat, huh?

So, since Geocities is closing in October, I took the time to move Kensuke Central (even though I haven't updated it since 2002 and probably never will again) over to my current webspace. I also changed the old website so the pages on it are all mostly warnings to change your bookmarks (for anyone who might still visit the place).

Anyway, the new address is http://kendailove.hiddenlegacy.net. It's got the exact same content as before, just in a new location. I'm too lazy and don't care enough to redo the site, even though I think it probably needs it.

I basically only spent time working on this project at times when I didn't feel like packing. Strange how I'm only productive on something if I'm procrastinating on something else...

Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

Guh. I dunno if these are the actual FAVORITES. These happen to be the ones I'm particularly fond of at the moment. This could potentially change tomorrow. Oh well... here, in no particular order:

1. Ken x Daisuke - Digimon (okay, this one really is probably always going to be on the list)
2. Syaoran x Sakura - Card Captor Sakura
3. Yamato x Taichi - Digimon
4. Koushiro x Mimi - Digimon
5. Akira x Hikaru - Hikaru no Go
6. Simon x Nia - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
7. Takeru x Hikari - Digimon
8. Sinbad x Jeanne - Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne
9. Kaoru x Luna - Mujin Wakusei Survive
10. Durnik x Polgara - Belgariad series by David Eddings

Guess which anime I've been into lately. Go on - guess.

Y'know, there are seven het pairings on there, but only three yaoi. Blasphemy or some such. I guess my tastes have changed a little. Not completely, but yeah, a little.

Writer's Meme: it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same. And by five, we apparently mean three.

... And by five people, it means 'tag no one and whoever wants to can do it'.

1. Piece of a Legend (Original - slash) - My masterpiece. I really love the story I decided on. This is probably my favorite out of everything I've written. I realize the 'coming of age' theme has been done many many times, but I never get tired of it and I wasn't really as overt as I could've been with it. There's a lot going on in this story, anyway. It's one of my few attempts at hidden meaning, and I think it's shaped up pretty good (though not totally completed yet and not posted on my site or Fiction Press). LINK

2. Believe It or Not (Digimon - Ken/Daisuke, Takeru/Hikari, Taichi/Yamato) - This one was never all that popular, but I love it. It's an AU fic (I wrote a LOT of those) based on certain fairy lore, which I am a sucker for. I love fairies and all Irish legends about them. The plot was very loosely based on 'The Hunter's Moon' by O.R. Melling, which I was a big fan of for a long time. I think everything turned out as I wanted it, and I can re-read it with pleasure. LINK

3. Going Under (Hikaru no Go - Akira/Hikaru) - The idea was just SO there. I wanted to play with it. I sometimes think the romantic interaction was iffy in this one, but the plot was everything I wanted it to be. I managed to actually tie it together pretty good. I wrote the thing, and it still gives me shivers sometimes, too. LINK

4. Howard, again (Uninhabited Planet Survive - no pairings, spoilers up to episode 43) - This one is so short, and SO simple, but there's something about it I like. It's the first ficlet I wrote for this series, a character exploration, but I think it captured what I wanted it to capture. I snuck a couple of things in there that some people might not notice, but that's okay. I was completely satisfied with it. LINK

5. Switch (Digimon Tamers - Jenrya/Takato, Hirokazu/Kenta, Ryo/Ruki) - It was just fun. I enjoyed every second of writing this fic, and I enjoy re-reading it. I think I did fairly well with the characterizations, and it more or less came out how I wanted it to. The interactions were a lot of fun, and everyone got to be fantastically confused by being stuck in the wrong bodies. I love it. LINK

One more, because it's a collab so it doesn't really fit in the above section:

6. Ground Level (Digimon - co-authored with [livejournal.com profile] girl_starfish - Taichi/Yamato, Ken/Daisuke, others) - It worked out so perfectly. I still like to read this one over again (though I mostly read Louise's parts). It was just so much fun to write, and the premise was so cool! I love everything we came up with for this, and just wish we'd both had time and inspiration to do the sequels we wanted to. LINK

I was thinking about scanning some of my doujinshi and putting up a page on my website where people can either download zip files or view pictures (if anyone has thoughts on which of these options is better, let me know). I want to know if anyone's interested, though... and what they'd be most interested in, since it will take a long time to scan most of these (my scanner kinda sucks).

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] sailormac: Summarize 10 of your fandoms in one sentence, then see who on your friend's list can guess each fandom.

I decided to screen comments for this one, so only I can see people's replies (and no one can cheat by looking at guesses made by someone else). I'll provide the answers next week some time. I think they'll be fairly easy, though.

silverthunder: (Duo - Heh)
Grabbed this one from [livejournal.com profile] illianaka, although I've seen it all over the place.

1. Comment with any ship from a fandom that you know I like, loathe entirely, or at least have some knowledge about. (If you don't know any of the series I like, just check out my bio.)

2. I will ramble for (at least) 100 words about aforementioned ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on what it is.

3. Put this on your LJ, if you are so inclined.
