  1. ...Game froze right when I was decorating my house. I refreshed, only to find myself back in Alhira with all my progress lost. I'm NOT going to spend two hours just to get that progress back - the lag is so terrible, it takes me a minute or two just to get past a single screen. ...Oh, right, this game eats 1 million RAM on my laptop. WHAT?

    I'm not going to play this game until all the glitches and lag are fixed. Seriously, I'm about ready to punch the next person who comes to my room to ask me why I'm swearing.


  2. It appears one of my Prize donations seems to be stuck in limbo? It didn't make it into the raffle for some reason.

     

    ...If it hasn't been raffled off to anyone, I might end up dumping it in the Departures thread. xd.png


  3. From what I've seen on this thread so far, I've fallen for Purple Nebula x female Witchlight, Nhiostrife x Witchlight, Silver Lunar Herald x Witchlight and male Purple x female Witchlight.

     

    ...I kinda want to see how Witchlights would look with Frostbites, blue Undines, all different Valentines (especially Rosebuds) and Waterhorses. Chose the latter two because Rosebud x Waterhorse is one of my favorite lineages. xd.png I need to see if either of them works with anything else...


  4. I think I joined back in 2008, but I can't remember my number anymore. xd.png I don't even have the confirmation email since I seem to have deleted everything pre-2010...

     

    EDIT: OK, just used the guide above and it seems my number is 150521.


  5. Manga

    I just started reading my Finnish copies of Magic Knight Rayearth. I've been avoiding CLAMP franchises like the plague since I dislike their art style - I also saw a few episodes of the English-dubbed anime back in 2000. I can't remember much, only that I went "...Why do their eyes take half of their face...?". Let's just say... the art is growing on me this time. The eyes still look huge, but at least the men and adult women seem more normal.

     

    Book

    I bought Rick Riordan's "The Sword of Summer" a few months ago. I'm only a few chapters in, but loving it just as much as the Percy Jackson series. I'm probably going to read all myth-based books he writes since I've been a mythology fangirl for as long as I remember. I know a great deal about different mythologies - Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Norse, Celtic, Finnish, Japanese, Hindu, Mesopotamian, Zoroastrian... I love anything dealing with myths and I'm REALLY hoping Riordan does a Celtic myth series next. Preferably with Gwydion and Gilfaethwy in it. ...I just want a reference about their little punishment by Math... :P


  6. There's one called Black Widow by Dolores O'riordan. I find the tone unsettling, like a song that's been extracted from some dark fairytale. I can't remember the lyrics with precision at all, I just don't like the song as a whole.

    ...The title of that song immediately made me remember a Finnish song called "Tumma nainen" or "Dark Woman". The story in that is pretty dark, even though the music isn't. xd.png These are the lyrics (they look a little clunky since I translated them from Finnish in a hurry... they'd look better if I put more effort into it).

     

    She didn't get out of her car

    Just pet the cat on her lap

    She pointed for me to follow

    When she did, I knew I would

     

    She drew a dim sign on the window

    And the carriage began to move

    The road ended on a shady yard

    She took me in and said it wouldn't take long

     

    *Refrain

    That dark woman conjured my fate for me

    In a black bowl she brewed a bewitched drink

    That dark woman danced like a blazing fire

    She told me my tomorrow unhappy would be

     

    From her cards she got a soldier

    And mumbled the strangest things

    You think that man is yours only

    But in my cards I see another woman

     

    You have to forget that man

    And mustn't visit him anymore

    I wondered about the strange advice

    As I left, I wondered what was wrong

     

    *Refrain

     

    I threw myself onto my bed

    Didn't cry, but stood up again

    I remembered the herbs of that drink

    After smelling them in my room

     

    I sneaked back to that house

    Heard the laughs and couldn't take it

    After throwing away the gun

    I left my lover in the witch's arms

     

    *Refrain


  7. I love all songs by Poets of the Fall, but their music videos are creepy. xd.png I can't listen to "Carnival of Rust" without thinking of worn-down funfairs and decaying clowns anymore. This is PotF's official channel. ...Have fun.

     

    ..Then there's all sorts of video game bgm, like "Damnation" from 2nd Super Robot Wars OG.


  8. Updated the available breeds list with the Aeon Wyvern, Almerald, Dark Lumina and Kingcrowne.

     

    PM me if you're missing a ticket to Nicosia or Torshavn. The blue line in my sig still applies, though I can get you one for free if you want~ (Also, if you already have/had a ticket, I don't mind giving you a second one.)


  9. Ticket to Baghdad available.

     

    Note the blue line - I take dummies. Just let me know about it by PM~

     

    EDIT: Just updated my passport and it appears one of my 2Gs died on me... I was tired from work and forgot all about it. ._. Welp. Anywho, I'm only three 2Gs away from my second city! If a native 2nd gen counts toward the 10 dragon limit, that is? (Samarkand, here I come~)


  10. I shall fly all night

     

    ...Thinking of vampires now. Yeek.

     

    (Tokisada is a villain in an anime series, so he IS kind of scary. ...And then you see his armor. His "Deathwatch" is a staff that looks like a clock and really kind of comical... then again, his voice is deep as the pit. No wonder his voice actor played Lucifer at one point.)


  11. "The power to change the direction of the gears of fate... that is the Force of Passion!"

     

    i.e. "180 Degrees ~Force of Passion~", the duet of Oscar and Arios (Kenyuu Horiuchi and Ken Narita) from Angelique. 8D I own the entire Angelique Vocal Complete Box which means 152 songs worth of music! <3

     

    ////////

     

    "Vienne ~Wien no Mori no Monogatari~", the duet of Shinobu Ousaki and Yusuke Fudou (Katsuyuki Konishi and Makoto Yasumura) from Kiniro no Corda. It's so pretty I just HAD to translate part of the song into English~ <3

     

    "Ousaki: The wind blows in gently, following the green hills

    Yusuke: The sunlight is shining down, arching through the trees

     

    Ousaki: The calm

    Yusuke: Scenery too

    Ousaki: Your visit

    Yusuke: Seems to make it happy

    Ousaki: With always more

    Yusuke: Of a shine

     

    Both: If you strain your ears within this forest

    You can hear the beat going back and forth

    The feelings that go along hand in hand

    Become one in this eternal place"


  12. Fire Emblem Fates: Special Edition - got mobbed by ninja, spearmen and guys with axes. All at the same time.

     

    I hate thee, Conquest Chapter 15. I'd much rather fight Faceless than do that Chapter again.
