Live Action--Prince of Tennis

May. 22nd, 2010 | 03:38 pm

I'm used to suspending disbelief. I watched Prince of Tennis as an anime. I'm aware Konomi was mostly "lol, physics" with the whole thing.

But watching it in live action makes it all the more obvious. I just had to pause, watching the Golden Pair play against Jyousei Shounen (or the LA-PoT counterpart), and seeing this little guy job off the other's back. It's poorly shot, where it's pretty obvious they suspended him on cables, and it's hard to maintain that he got up there all by himself.

Oishi's Moon Volley effect was gorgeous though. So shiney. Totally makes up for everything. Do it again please.

Gamer Language.

May. 23rd, 2009 | 06:20 pm

I know this term is used all the time in gaming, when you've been killed by something and you never had a chance, but damn, it's still disturbing to here my eight-year-old nephew say the phrase:

"He raped me four times!!!"

I'd argue that the term is used like this because gaming is dominated by men, but all the girls I play with use it too. I think I've used it myself. I'm torn about what I think about the use of the term this way.

And I know I abused the word "term" in the post, but it's hard to form sentences when the eight-year-old is still chattering into your ear.

He's also fond of the term "filthy beggar". He's used it six times since I started typing this post.

It's Hot today.

Apr. 25th, 2009 | 12:04 pm

It's hot today, at least in the house. It's actually kinda cool outside. If only I had something to DO out there, I'd go and be in tuned with nature or something.

So my niece Lacey has a boyfriend. She's ten, so I doubt that means anything, but you never know with kids these days. Her cousin Trent is nearly nine and he told my sister not to worry because "he already talked to him" for her. LOL

Dad's outside spreading mulch and refuses any help offered. Corbin's outside with him "supervising" and trying to do half of it for him. Corbin doesn't take no for an answer, so they'll probably be at it for a while. Dad's all flushed, panting, and red, so hopefully he caves before he gives himself a heart attack.

It's nothing new that I have poor circulation, but I woke up at 4 in the morning in MASSIVE pain because apparently I rolled onto my arm and cut the circulation off to it somehow. It hurt for a while and it's still kinda numb in a rather strange way. Which means it's better now, but damn it was pretty scary to wake up to that. I could hardly move it and it hurt like hell to do it.

Megan's made it into the JET program! I'm massively excited for her and sad at the same time. I really wanted to do that, but I doubt I can get in, more so with this large gap of being unemployed that I'm sitting on. I'll just have to live vicariously through her.

There are No SPOILERS in this post.

Cut, even though there are no spoilers, because sometimes, people don't even want to know the reactions before they see something.

Just. Wow.

Dear Author review of Knight Moves by Jamaica Layne

Getting published if I ever crack down and actually finish something looks more and more possible all the time.

Complex Fic 2

Feb. 14th, 2009 | 11:00 pm

Fic: Untitled. "We Don't Do Dishes" maybe.
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Characters: Jackal and Marui (and Marui's little brothers)
Rating: PG-16 for subject matter and swearing. Lots of swearing.
Disclaimer: I don't own Prince of Tennis, nor The Complex AU.
Notes: Set in the_complex_au, but following it isn't necessary, I don't think. This is obviously AU in which Marui owns Jackal.
Notes 2: This isn't very long either, but it sets up the character dynamics. I named the Marui twins, and I don't think there are canon names for them anywhere.

We don't do dishes.Collapse )

Complex Fic

Feb. 14th, 2009 | 09:36 pm

Fic: Untitled, "Voodoo" tentative
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Characters: Jackal, Kirihara, and Marui (a little)
Rating: PG-13 for subject matter, see notes
Disclaimer: I do not own Prince of Tennis, nor do I own this particular AU idea.
Notes: This fic was written to fit into The Complex AU setting, started by atamagaitai and nozomi_chan and which can be read at the_complex_au. For those unfamiliar with the setting, The Complex is a place where people are bought and sold into slavery. That is the very gist of a summary. I encourage others to go there and read it for a better understanding.
Notes 2: This is part 1, and I'm posting another snippet right after. This deals with Jackal being acquired and then sold.

First, thanks to Tan for accidentally making me feel better by letting me talk fandom at her. I'm much calmer now after what happen below:

Cut, because it's long and it's more for me than other people anyway.Collapse )
