Double post, but it's worth it. So I got into a chat with [livejournal.com profile] clover_magic, and we wound up going off on a tangent about the dub-names in DC/MK. And the results...well, it's long, but they were just too much fun to NOT share.

Momo isn't allowed to make puns anymore. )

And for those who find this all teal-deer, here's our condensed list of Bad Dub Names.

And the Razzie goes to... )

Why yes, we did have a very long discussion about this. WE ARE COMMITTED TO TALKING ABOUT THESE THINGS SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO! \o/ Or something...
candyland: (mouth)
[livejournal.com profile] magicbulletgirl posted it a little bit ago. I read it (read that as "looked at the pretty pictures") and had a few thoughts...

Spoooooilers! And also weirdness! )

I feel a little better now. Still stressing about stuff, but...that did cheer me up XD
candyland: (jack)
Okay, in Conan file 614...did anyone else notice that we finally have mention of Kazuha's MOTHER?? [livejournal.com profile] cherelle_holmes isolated the panel in question on her LJ (that's where the linkie goes). I have faith in our loverly translators, so...

ZOMG DA SPOILERIES ARE UNDER DA CUT!! )

ETA: Okay, this meme was just too much fun to pass up. Soooo...ganked from [livejournal.com profile] defnight...

F-lists are the quickest way to spread obsessions. Time to thank/blame your friends for getting into fandoms. You can blame more than one for a single fandom, or a single person for more fandoms. Tag as many as you list, or a minimum of three.

♥ I THANK/BLAME [livejournal.com profile] bishonen_girl for getting me into Fruits Basket, which started my complete downhill slide in hopeless otaku-dom
♥ I THANK/BLAME [livejournal.com profile] rachel_bussan (who never updates anymore *sadface) for getting me into Azumanga Daioh.
♥ I THANK/BLAME [livejournal.com profile] kaitodoushi for getting me into Inuyasha...and Detective Conan, back when we only knew it as Case Closed. (YES, IT'S HER FAULT! BLAME HER!)

And for ships...I really only have one.

♥ I THANK/BLAME [livejournal.com profile] ickaimp for getting me into Kaito/Hakuba.

...actually...

♥ I THANK/BLAME THE ENTIRE DETECTIVE CONAN/MAGIC KAITOU FANDOM FOR GETTING ME INTO YAOI AND SMUT!! BECAUSE I NEVER WROTE SMUT BEFORE I GOT INTO THIS FANDOM, AND NOW IT'S EVERYWHERE AND I LIKE IT!!! *shakes fist at the general populace*

And I tag...anyone who wants to do this.

[livejournal.com profile] candyfics: Fanfic100: Sweet (featuring Heiji, Kazuha, and fruit)
candyland: (surprised)
So, remember how I was sort of bemoaning the fact that my last fic for [livejournal.com profile] 30_hugs was mutating liek whoa? Well...I finally beat it into submission.

Read that as "I finished the damn fic." All fourteen pages and 11,095 words of it!

So my claim for [livejournal.com profile] 30_hugs is done. The last fic can be found over here on [livejournal.com profile] candyfics.

Oh, and while I'm at it, did everyone get to see the video version of the Fandom Squee Heard 'Round the World? If not, there it is. Subbed and everything. I still think Toichi looks like a pirate. Or Zorro. It's the moustache that does it, really. Or maybe he's a Zorro-pirate.

Which brings up the question of who would win in combat: a Zorro-pirate or a ninja-pirate?

Also, [livejournal.com profile] msbbt and I had a philosophical discussion today. We live in Iowa, and we were trying to figure out if the towns are between the cornfields, or the cornfields are between the towns. For some reason, I found this to be hilarious.

Enjoy! :D *falls over sideways*
candyland: (lurker)
Is anyone else familiar with the fanarts of Cherelle Holmes? If you're not, you really need to go look at them, because they are absolutely GORGEOUS. Also, if you're in the mood for something a bit risque, check out her doujin. Even if you don't speak German, the pictures are prettiful ♥ And that one pictures of hers, with baby!Shinichi approaching baby!Ran while she's holding a stuffed bunny rabbit? Yeah--that was the one that inspired one of my 30 Kisses.

...I don't suppose anyone on my LJ here speaks German or maybe has access to her email address? I want to email her and tell her I really like her stuff *feels stalkerish* Pleez and thanks!

Oh, and for those I hadn't told...I had a plunnie for [livejournal.com profile] 30_hugs for the last fic for it, right? Right. And I started writing it. And it mutated. And the plunnies kept whispering that I needed to put this scene in and this scene in and that other thing...it's going to be about fifty times longer than I'd thought it would be. Which means it is going to take forever to finish ^^;;
candyland: (fangirlgasm)
It was a teacher work-day today. Elementary Teacher and I spent the whole day working on program stuff, and we got a TON done. I think I can sum up my favorite part of the day in two words:

POODLE. SKIRTS :D

Mine's pink :3 Still need to get a few things...

And tonight was Kingdom Hearts night--I scrapbooked while [livejournal.com profile] msbbt played and [livejournal.com profile] bishonen_girl fell asleep. FOR ONCE IT WASN'T ME!!! :D :D :D I think our goal for next week is to BEAT URSULA D: We did play some of the Pooh games. Best thing EVER was when [livejournal.com profile] msbbt started pulling vegetables out of Rabbit's garden, and we all started shouting "MY CABBAGES!!" a la Avatar ♥

I have Detective Conan/Case Closed volume sixteen. We stopped at B&N on our way to my house so we could get it. And lo, Kat and I did fangirl squee like crazy in the middle of the manga aisle. And then Kat took home the award for the best line of the night:

Kat: *points to Conan face on the spine* Conan has hearts in his eyes. He must've seen Kaitou Kid on the back cover, too!

Also, Little Sister is home for a week for spring break ^__^;;
candyland: (squee mayura)
I bounce over to [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses every once in a while to see what's new on the List o' Claims and whatnot. And guess what? [livejournal.com profile] ivory_petals has claimed Shinichi and Ran.

...YAY! Now I have TWO sets of Shin/Ran smoochies to read, one for [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses and one for [livejournal.com profile] 30kisses. :3 *pokes [livejournal.com profile] ran_mouri82* And hopefully soon more Satou/Takagi love from [livejournal.com profile] magic_truth, yes?

I'm not gonna poke [livejournal.com profile] fyliwionvilyaer about ficcies, though. Poor girl's got pneumonia, and I hope she feels better soon!

...end rambling :3

I just got out of an inservice, so I'm sort of hanging out while waiting for my coop to get back from another meeting (one that I am not privy to for various reasons). So yeah. Whoo.

HAPPY TURKEY DAY, EVERYONE!!


Every year, Jerry the Band Director dismisses us from our last rehearsal before Thanksgiving break with the instructions, "Go home, rest, and come back having gained at least five pounds." I'm pretty I did =D Mommy outdid herself this year--it was DELICIOUS! So much food...so much wonderful, wonderful food!

We ate at about two o'clock this afternoon. It's now twenty to nine. I'm thinking I might go make myself a turkey sandwich. WHY AM I HUNGRY AGAIN?? *stabs stomach and dies*

Oh oh oh, and I finally got to see the Conan live-action drama. I've had it for a few days, but I haven't had time to actually watch it. Pretty sure I was fangirling like crazy over the Shin/Ran moments. Utter, utter sweetness ♥ A few things were kind of dumb, but overall? Pretty pleased =D

And it's official--I've been plagiarized from. An author named Li Ping on ff-dot-net has been taking fics (mostly from [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses, but also from a couple of other comms, it looks like), translating them into German, and posting them without A) the permission of the original authors, and B) credit given to the original authors. At present, this person has taken two of my Kisses stories--"Wild Goose Chase" and "The View." "Wild Goose Chase" really makes me mad because I wrote that for [livejournal.com profile] magic_truth.

The dumb thing is that it wouldn't have bothered me so much if they'd even just slapped my name on there as the original author. I've had people ask if they can translate a few of my stories, and I always say yes with two conditions: A) credit me as the original author, and B) send me a link to where you post them so I can see what they look like in a different language. I just think it's kinda cool. This...gah. RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION!

*bows* That is all...for now. *goes to make a sandwich*
candyland: (fear)
First things first.

Meningitis Update )

And now I'm currently trying to figure out what the hell my director's doing--she just emailed out and said that we're splitting men and women today. But when we talked about it on Monday, she said that was happening on Thursday. WTF?? Please to be emailing me back, PK, I'd really like to know what's going on--especially because we haven't finalized a women's piece yet. We were supposed to be doing that today. Raaaaaaaar...

Two days 'till RENT!! *Happy Dances of Evil* Twelve days 'till my birthday! *floats* AND I'LL HAVE MY CONAN MOVIE TODAY!! *happy happy backflip*

And finally...

It's snowing.

WHY IS IT SNOWING??

Oh well, at least it isn't sticking...yet...thirty-six degrees is still a little too warm for the snow to be sticking and piling up--but there's a seventy percent chance of snow on Saturday. When I'm stuck here on campus for fall break. Whoopie *hides head in the sand*
candyland: (plunnie)
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo want to be friends? I'm on there as Candyland, because I am woefully uncreative like that *laugh* Pleez to be making friends, yes? *luvs on everyone*

We should do a support group for it--I'd host it right here. That'd be fun--see how far along everyone is, how frustrated, what plot-hole has just been discovered, the great idea that just bit, and how many keyboards have been destroyed by repeated headdesking again them. Although if someone has actually smashed their head into their keyboard enough to break it, we're going to need a different type of support group ^^;;

But anyway, I have my initial idea for my novel. I just have to develop it into a full, comprehensive plot. So this month's project is to get ahead on fics and get some sort of an outline together--fortunately, I have fall break duty, so I'll have a few days with absolutely NOTHING to do, sitting around on campus ^_______^ Here's hoping for the best!

Oh, and I preordered the dub release of the first Conan movie, right? Well, when I checked it on Monday, it said I was on backorder *sigh* Then I checked it again yesterday, and it said it was "Reserved for my order." @_@ I just want it to get here soon!! *flails*
