  1. 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...
  2. Hyliacloud Isn't Hylia a character from Zelda or something?
  3. ...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. 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
  4. I love all songs by Poets of the Fall, but their music videos are creepy. 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.
  5. 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.)
  6. 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~)
  7. Tickets to Nicosia and Torshavn available. Note the blue line - I take dummies. Just let me know about it by PM~ EDIT: Updated the list of available breeds. I've added Candelabra, Aria/Bright Pink and Frilled.
  8. ...Actually a bgm track and not a song, but... eh. I really wish my portable CD-player actually WORKED so I could listen to this album. Right now the player keeps skipping, distorting the sound and showing full batteries as empty...
  9. Sycamoreflight ...Given the other Canopies, this seems like a Pokémon reference?
  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. Flux Capacitor Ooo, time travel.
  12. I'm a little teacup ...Almost sounds like a changed version of "I'm a little teapot, short and stout~"...
  13. My Name is Jeff F LMW ...Because all I can think of is "Wake Up Jeff" and now IT'S PLAYING IN MY HEAD. "Dorothy the Dinosaur's munching on some roses~"
  14. IM BLUE DABADE CB M LMW *sings out set to the Blue Danube*
  15. "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"
  16. 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.
  17. ...These Hawk Drakes... http://dragcave.net/lineage/GOnOt http://dragcave.net/lineage/hHOme
  18. Hi I'm Acnologia ffff *pokes actual Acnologia with a stick*
  19. I sometimes have problems with Creedence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty. BAD MOON RISING Heard: "I've seen birth, quakes and lightnin'" Actual: "I've seen earthquakes and lightnin'." Heard: "Let's find and take your dad" Actual: "Well it's bound to take your life" Heard: "I hear the voice of racial ruin" Actual: "I hear the voice of rage and ruin"
  20. Do manga volumes count as books? If so, I've got Super Robot Wars OG: Divine Wars ~Record of ATX~, Pokémon Adventures, Are You Alice?, At Laz Meridian, Ginga Densetsu Weed, Magi, One Piece, Haikyuu and several "Alice in the Country of n/a" going at the same time. I also got the English volumes of B'tX recently so I'll be starting that one. Whenever I feel like it (and have time), I pick up an actual book - currently I've been obsessed with history and bought "The Edge of the World" by Michael Pye two days ago. It's about the evolution of sailing in Northern Europe, and how maritime exploration and trade shaped that area of the world (I'm from Finland myself so it's kind of exciting~). I've also got "Warfare in the Ancient World" and Enrico Ascalone's "Mesopotamia" waiting for me to continue reading them... I've loved Mesopotamian history and ancient warfare since I was a little girl.
  21. The Belgariad/Malloreon, Elenium/Tamuli, Althalus and Dreamers series by David Eddings. Though I'm pretty certain that will never happen. Dave was VERY clear that he will never allow anyone to film his books - he said that he was trying to teach kids to read while pulling them AWAY from TV screens, and filming his books would defeat that purpose altogether. And I love Dave for that~ ...Also Janny Wurts's The Wars of Light and Shadow. It's got some complicated English sometimes, but that would only make the series / movies more amazing.
  22. ...How exactly do you fight the sky, anyway? <--- Anyone who doesn't know who this guy is: Kyosuke Nanbu, mecha pilot extraordinaire. No matter how tough your armor, he has but to kick it. And his voice is strong enough to break a mic with a single scream (Toshiyuki Morikawa is infamous for this - he broke a recording mic while screaming "VOLTEKKA" at it, and later broke ANOTHER one with the same scream).
  23. This girl really isn't any more special to me than my other dragons, but it's the only one that actually grew up on my birthday. This one was born on my sister's 34th birthday (I didn't notice, btw), though she never actually saw the day since she died at 27.
  24. Pink Pokémon. Nuff said. And he's male, too. ...What's Kouichi Yamadera doing on my scroll?
