So please come and leave your amazing prompts!
All pairings, all characters, all verses!
Also please note: the Angst- thing is just a hook for the com (it does welcome dark-fic) but the general definition that is applied for Angst is a moment of tension and each story needs that, right?

Also please if you feel so inclined help spread the word- me as a slash - trio-era writer, mostly has no clue about where to find the het- not-trio-ear people hanging out!

i was researching something and trying to find a good character look that fits the image in my head and then i found these two amazing gems:

marauders )
smirkingcat: (not end well)
so i read that a lot of people are more comfortable over at dreamwidth-
sadly i have to say i'm not one of them.
here is the stuff i wonder about- and maybe some folks on my f-list can sent me tips where i can get my information from over? that would be really awesome.

what this cat needs from dreamwidth to maybe come to like it )

all the tips will be highly appreciated from me!
thank you so much!

ok so this one has a bit of a story, and i know i told it before, but just to catch you up- if you are interested:

why i had to watch twilight *sigh* )

so to survive watching all of these movies i made a list as i watched them about all that annoys me!
be aware if you are a fan of those movies- then this is not for you to read. i don't enjoy romance movies at all (star was is something special). from the get go these movies didn't really stand a chance with me.
what i will grant them - fair is fair - the wolves animations are pretty neat and nice to look at!

135 reasons why twilight sucked )
that is all i'm ever going to say about those movies ever again!
smirkingcat: (standard)
so before i go into this, and show you my nice list that i have, let me make one thing perfectly clear: i compare anime to anime! so the manga has nothing to do with it.
i'm also a huge, sailor moon fan! like i watch all the old episodes 200 of them nearly on a yearly basis! and i read the manga way to often because it is that beautiful and i like it that much.
so yes i am not easy to please...

my list - spoilers and opinion included! )

i really believe that a chance was missed here by first wanting to put too much into too little episodes and by saying "ok we only stick to the manga now and leave the old animation behind". from a marketing point of view i can see why they chose that route, but most of the fans who liked the first anime so much and watched it over and over and shared it with they kids were disappointed or simply though of it as hilarious but not that good. in the end it did not pay of well for them... but these stunts rarely do.

i struggle with this review- a lot
because even after 2 weeks my mind is not yet made up.
overall the movie wasn't that bad. but even sitting in the best places the cinema had to offer, and being excited about it- honestly i was bored a lot during the movie

read with being aware it holds spoilers- because i have no clue what spoilers are, and my own opinion- and boy this cat is opinionated )

and yes i know i still have to watch episode 7 *headdesks*
but i figure i will wait for it to be close for the release of episode 8 so that i have it fresh in mind.
smirkingcat: (standard)
sit back and enjoy the ride!
this one simply takes you on it for sure.
BUT first: you have to accept it is GRAPHIC VIOLENCE and there is a shitton of blood in it- good, well animated blood that has meaning and sometimes it doesnt. also it's a non-linare sorta but not really kind of story, but if you can accept that, and in fact enjoy animated blood (because the animation of the blood really tells you a lot about how good the anime will be and this one - oh boy this one has it all!
they used very different styles on animations- they really went out of their way to mix it up, and that just glued my eyes to the screen!
i also like the different body style- while one can already see the - what i call "beautiful, flat and mass-produced" style - think of Vampire Knight, Ouran High School Host Club, Uragiri Boku no name shitteru etc - they all have the same style of faces and bodies, that's the style i mean-
and kurozuka is not in that style which i really find refreshing!

first things first kurozuka is pretty much a love story- with all the drama and politics around them (well in fact it has some star wars kind of element to it.
the characters are amazing- not just the animation but their actual development is just fascinating
and kuro is really an amazing character to have his story told.
the end is not that surprising if you are familiar with japanese story-telling but the way you go there makes it worth for
and the richness of the animation!
also my most favorite and sadly long gone Shiozawa Kaneto is doing a great job just as usual! and i so admire his voice- he could talk all to me the time - though that might make me unable to do anything but you know being horny *blushes*

please give it a try- it deserves your attention!

so wolf guy is an anime from 1992/1993 and based on the novels and mangas with the same name.
i personally only know about the mangas though and they are amazing, so yes i will be the first to say that i had high expectations and as far as story goes i was not disappointed- it is a good spinoff of the original.
however, and i have to speak bluntly- 20 minutes never felt this long.
and i'm not able to say why - which simply baffles me
the animation, given the time it was made is not bad; maybe i should have watched it with more focus? i don't know.
what i am amazed of is how you can see the ground works for wolf's rain in that anime.
what i really enjoyed was the variations of love they showed, and it can manifest in all it's different ways- and loyalty and how it manifests in us.
over all it's not a bad OVA- but even if it's not that long, it still takes time to watch it- it is not watched easily!

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] digthewriter"
i wish you all the best, lots of health, fun, luck, laughter and cake in your future!
thank you for the amazing you that you are, and for all that you do for us to make life great for us too!
and thank you for showing me what real attitude looks like- i learned very much by simply reading some of your posts





Your small gift )
smirkingcat: (wound tight)
and too much on my mind.
also i should be writing but head ache is making it difficult so i try to ease my way in, it's to late here to take a nap right now *sigh*
so here we go with some things that are on my mind again
i want to spam you a little, not all the time ;) )

wish you all a nice sunday ahead!!!
have a great time
smirkingcat: (stumped)
my parents gave me for christmas a cinema trip, and i could decide which movie to go.
i chose assassins creed for 2 reasons: 1.i fucking adore the vid-games, like i play all of them over and over and over (i still need to get part 3 and 4 though and i'm not so sure if i like the american world with my assassins creed that much really)
2. michael fassbender! ever since 'shame' he simply convinced me that he is a great actor and while there are some projects he did, which i am not that fond of, most of his work is awesome
so at first i was very, very excited to go
yesterday night before the movie i had a break-down into worry-land. what if it was bad? what if it wasn't like in the games, what if fassbender did it wrong?
well, here is me after the movie and long version short: i'm still conflicted!

long version - there might be spoilers, depending on what you think is a spoiler so read with caution )

if you have seen it, or are going to see it- tell me later what you think/thought about it, i would be interested in hearing about it!

honest time

smirkingcat: (blow me)
after i now posted nearly daily for two months, it feels strange not to post, and clutter your feed...
so here i am with some randomness that i was thinking about yesterday and today


  • i can't write fanfic of the pairing i just read - this mostly is true for h/d because i lose myself so much in the story i'm reading that when i get back to my story i lost sight of the points i wanted to make - and no, plotting does not help in that regard, because even staring at my notes did not bring me back the story i intended to write with this draft, i have to wait for it to come back to me, i know what now is in my mind is wrong *sigh*

  • today i have to sit down and write because gywo-challenge and i have not written a word of fanfiction/thesis yet
    - and for those of you who are interested and know: yes i do story writing rpgs, but i consider them 'away time' or 'free time', and so the time and words that go into them do not count (truthfully this might be for the better, as otherwise my rpgs alone would get my OUT of writing


  • i need to edit huge-ass podfic, but i'm so sick of my voice - i believe it's giving me a headache, mybe my voice is possessed by the damn?


  • i have nearly beaten my cold into submission! that is something right? can i get a gold star for that? *this cat wants a gold star so bad*


  • i also really want to change my lj-page layout... but i honestly have not the time for it, and i dont know into what i would like to change it- does that even compute?



now i feel better- like my mind is decluttered now that the most stupid observations are gone XD
have a great day !
smirkingcat: (energy)
so my 2016- fandom recap:

  1. i was a good girl and stayed away from fests! it was sooo hard, but it was also necessary!


  2. 2016 was for certain a podfic year for me- [livejournal.com profile] podfic_bingo was a fantastic help and THANK YOU to all those who left so nice comments on my podfics - i still feel i do way to much podfic for a non-native but sadly i have to much fun doing it so i will continue! i have some real gems on my list this year!


  3. my biggest podfic yet needs lots, and lots of editing and therefore has ruined all my plans - but 2017 will see it!


  4. i tried for the monthly challenges but after 2 months i just noticed that words were failing me so hard- i hope they are back for this year though


  5. i failed at finishing any of my old wips and got lots of new ones + ideas- my work for this year!


  6. i noticed that reading and writing do not go well together for me as i then loose sight of the story i want to tell- need to work on a strategy there


  7. all in all i'm rather satisfied with this year still- yes i failed at words, but i think i improved a lot on the podfic front and i had a blast doing so!



let the pictures talk )

so that was 2016- now let 2017 begin!

plan for 2017:

  1. work on wips!!!


  2. work on podfics that are on my list - i cant show you list, but there are surprises on it


  3. [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout not failing on my 150k pledge!!!


  4. having fun!

  5. having attitude! - this one applies more to rl then anything else, but i think i really should man up a little, and not worry so much and be such a control freak...




also, if you could please spare me 5 min of your time and check out this poll over at SOA i would be very greatful! thank you!
smirkingcat: (ryoukai)
dearf-list! i wish you all a happy new year with lots of health, laughter, fun and cake for you and your dear ones and your family!!!
may this year treat you kindly.

and then i have some announcements to make!
annauncements )
thanks for your attention! have a great year too!
and i'll be interested to read all your recaps of 2016 and all your intentions for 2017 too!
