First off - a belated welcome back to [livejournal.com profile] levels  and a very happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] mairenn_k ! ♥ ♥ ♥

Heh, I love how half the entire PH fandom came out to thank the person who gave us early raws. XD

the very lengthy Pandora Hearts spoilers want you to know that they loves Ada, yes, they do  )

o-omg, guys, i just opened my friends list and nearly had a HEART ATTACK and was all D: D: D: for a good five minutes at all the random hate posts. /o\

HEART ATTACK, i tell you. ):

(but it's so hilarious XD)
ceitean: (i saw that)
I...don't actually think this is relevant to people on my flist (which is why I never posted it before), but I just spelled it out in comments over on a post in dreamwidth, so I figured I may as well bring it up here.

Read only if you know both Stargate Atlantis and N. Novik's Temeraire series. Otherwise it won't make sense. XD )

Ain't it a small world? XD
ceitean: (break and gil)
- I...have five extra icons spaces? o_o How'd that happen?

- This song, I Know Things Now, should be one of Ada's theme songs. XD It's from Into the Woods and is sung from the perspective of Little Red Riding Hood. '...but he seemed so nice.' >D

- more Nightray rambling, I know, you're shocked )

- and I thought this was a metaphor, but maybe not? )

- one last thing. About the Alices... )

Also, because I just realized - today is my journal's first anniversary! :D

Of the happy-making: new Pandora Hearts! And Holic! And also, I finally got caught up with FMA! Just in time, too. :D

I've got stuff to say about all 'em. (Mostly along the lines of, 'Madame Christmas? HAHAHA,' and 'I knew eeeeeet! And it explains his anger so much, ' and 'So I guess he's the shop's new bitch errand boy, eh?'

More later!

eta: Supreme Court Rolls Back Campaign Finance Restrictions, is what started the rage. This is a PDF of the full decision, with dissenting remarks by Judge Stevens.

I’m working on a (much longer) post about the US Supreme Court’s recent decision to abolish political campaign spending limitations for corporations, on the basis that the previous laws were violating the First Amendment (free speech) rights of said corporations. I think I’m going to title it:

I have not hated the Supreme Court this much since the mid- to late 1800s, or, DO NOT GIVE ME THAT 'FREEDOM OF SPEECH' BULLSHIT; PIECES OF PAPER DO NOT HAVE VOCAL CORDS, I AM QUITE SURE. )

one of my oldest friends got married!

Any comm they were apart of [even if they were not the only mod of the community] has been suspended without any explanation or notice." - here via [livejournal.com profile] murdering

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer.

EDIT: When people talk about gender fail, the hypocrisy around yaoi, and Orientalism/exoticizing the Other in animanga, they are talking about a very specific and very large group of young, female, white fans. This post is about those fans.

For further background on the many issues surrounding the broader discussion of animanga, race, gender, and privilege, please see these posts:

This post is in response to [personal profile] branchandroot 's entry on The Difference Between Manga and Comics and the ongoing discussion about meta in animanga fandom:

In this post, I'm mainly speaking about the bulk of animanga fandom -- these are not the experiences of every fan. I'm generalizing here, but I'm doing it based off of 12 years of observation and participation in various anime and manga fandoms. Also, I'm not trying to invalidate anyone's fannish experience. I <i>know</i> that not all anime fans are teenaged girls. This post is in reference to the many who are and their significance to animanga fandom as it stands today. )

Dear fandom,
