...it's probably a bad idea to be waiting for a DGM release every month, isn't it.

I suddenly find myself with a massive new appreciation for Pandora Hearts. xD
ceitean: (reborn)
I really, really, really need to get back in the habit of posting again. orz

So hi~! :D :D :D Here, have a checklist.

Things I Have Been Doing:
  • Reading Natsume Yuujinchou! Parts of this series make me very nostalgic for old school Holic. ): But that's okay, really, because I liked old school Holic! The whole thing is very...soothing? Yes. Normally I love stories that I can sink my analytical teeth into (yes, my teeth are analytical, don't hate), but NY has this nice, chill, otherworldly vibe to it that's very relaxing. I think I have to be in the mood to read/watch it, though.
  • The last Holic OAV. ...no, you know what? I'm not even gonna go there. If I do I'll just spend (another) an hour tearing my hair out and blubbering. (alksdfjasfd, DOUMEKI. D:)
  • D. Gray-Man! I just started this series a little while ago and am now all caught up on the latest chapters and making my way through the anime. (Have noticed quite a bit of filler, heh.) Overall I really, really  like it. Lavi's my favorite, not gonna lie. And I've got a soft spot in my heart for poor emo Crowley. xD I hear there's been some massively long hiatuses for this series which I, for one, am glad to have missed. Still, I can see where the breaks in narrative occurred. I'm not sure how I feel about the new art (I LOVED how the characters were drawn in the Ark arc) and the action leading to the last Big Flashback Sequence was a bit messy and rushed, imo, but I'm still really interested to see where this all goes.
  • Pandora Hearts. I...I'm not sure I can say anything without breaking into AJSDFA'KSLD*OMG*JFA'SKLDJFASKJDF*SPOILER*ASLKDFALKSDFJ*SOB*ASKDJF;ASJDFASFD. I've decided to do a reread of PH starting very soon, though. :D There are still a lot of plot threads left dangling and I want to see if I can find them all.
  • (PH continued) oh, and considering the events of the last chapter...does this mean ::spoiler:: will become a Duke? Yeah. Think about that. I'm not sure it would really be allowed to happen, all things considered, but...it's possible. And that's pretty mindblowing.
  • Avatar the Last Airbender. I've been rewatching the series along with the Mark Reads/Watches site which has been great fun so far. The episode-a-day schedule is a bit slow, but worth it in the end. He starts Book 2 next week. *excited*
  • Oofuri. I need to get caught back up. orz
  • Reborn! *gigglesnort* Ah, KHR. Never change. Oh! Before I forget - What We Fought For by Metisket. Go read this right now. Run, do not walk. This fic is amazing. It's long, plotty, with great characterization and it has research notes. <3 The author calls it a real!mafia AU. I call it a freaking masterpiece. The story takes place just after Tsuna and Co return from the future. As the kids grow up, they find out that the mafia world, largely due to the Vongola's own growing power, has taken a step back from the flashy tactics of old. The Italian mafia no longer relies on flames, or rings, or high stakes battles - it has turned into the real world of Camorra clans. How does Tsuna deal with the real!mafia while still trying to protect his family? Seriously, this fic is amazing, check it out. And while you're at it, check out the author's other fics, too. She's amazing.
Quote from the fic, after Tsuna comes up with his Big Plan To Fix The Mafia and has to explain it to his Guardians:
Lambo had initially burst into tears, but Tsuna won him over by promising that no Bovinos would be shot. Ryouhei is game for anything extreme. Gokudera required a knock-down, drag-out argument and Yamamoto required two hours of careful explanation, but they’re both behind him now. Hibari finds the discipline in Southern Italy to be utterly lacking, and has threatened to fix it before. The prospect of a mafia family breaking the back of mafia power in Italy, meanwhile, delights Mukuro down to the bottom of his twisted soul. And finally, there’s Chrome, who has a higher opinion of Tsuna’s intelligence than she ought to, and is largely indifferent to the fate of anyone who isn’t Vongola. She sees nothing wrong with Tsuna’s plan.

So yeah! How've you all been lately? :D

Even if you have NO IDEA what Pandora Hearts is (actually, especially if you have no idea what it is) - you should watch this. Watch it right now. *glee*

edit: l-lmao, I didn't know it would be that big. Um. sorry for breaking your flists? orz I swear I'll fix it tomorrow tonight~.

HELLO~  ♥ ♥ ♥

Hi. Wow. Been way, way, way too long. /o\ But I'm back~ And I have massive catching up to do!

Er, apparently Raw Paradise and OneManga shut down? And the internet semiexploded? But hey, it's not like there aren't a ton of other aggregate sites out there and at least the scanlation teams weren't targeted. Links break, but the internet moves on. So is life.

I have been doing the job thing, and by 'doing' I mean 'failing', so I am in the process of trying the job thing again. Family drama continues, but I have managed to extricate myself from it, thank god. I have been studying for the LSAT because I really can't avoid that much longer. I managed to loose my freaking driver's permit because it expired, how sad it that. It took a freaking MONTH to get a new one. (it is now official, I hate the DMV with a truly unholy passion. they made us wait outside for hours then told people to go home and come back tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow and ARGH! it's summer! in florida!i still get twitches thinking about it.)

Have discovered Florence & the Machine. This should be interesting. Turns out it's good writing music.

Hm, fannish stuff. I watched BBC's Sherlock and I loved it to pieces. Or, alright, I loved the first and third episode to pieces, I kinda hit fast forward for most of the second. But the first and third were awesome! I read some Sherlock Holmes in middle school - Hound of the Baskervilles and a few short stories - so I was able to pick up on enough of the injokes for the show to be very amusing. ETA: aside from the slashyness, of course. :D  (And my ass is he a high functioning sociopath. They don't have a word for what he is, but it's not a sociopath. Yes, even if he exhibits some a disturbing number of the typical behaviors, there's a reason the DSM-IV is set up with a fluid diagnostic criteria - . /stops self before sidetracking into an Abnormal Psych rant.)

But yeah. Sherlock rocked. Ya'll should watch it.

Oh! And I read through the scanlations of Oofuri! I have lots to say about this!! ♥ (truthfully it's mostly along the lines of, 'oh god abe. ;_; i understand, bb, i do, but you can't do that. please stop doing that.' And what is this 'Kimobe' thing? And Meoto? And OH MY GOD WHY DID IT END THERE OH MY GOD. I think I will be needing some Oofuri icons. :D

The new PH chapter is out! And...so are all the other chapters I missed! orz Chapter recaps of those coming v. v. soon. And I think I'm gonna try reposting the faq, too, if for no other reason than to provide resource links now that OM is down.

Holic: ...you know, I'm feeling massively nostalgic for spazzy highschool!Watanuki. And Yuuko. And Himawari. Not that Watanuki isn't rocking the sexy outfits, but I miss the charm of how the series used to be. Still love it though. Damn you, CLAMP.
ceitean: (fandom= happy)
Thing that makes me sad: YENPRESS. Why you gotta take my fix away? Was that really necessary? D:

Thing that makes me happy!: It's my birthday and the world hasn't come crashing down yet. :D :D :D (no, really, I have such bad luck with birthdays, you have no idea)

Thing that makes me sad: My driver's permit runs out today. Yes, I'm already in my twenties. No, I don't know how to drive yet. Yes, this is getting ridiculous. /o\

Thing that makes me happy!: I might be going to Argentina in October! For like, a month! Or at least a few weeks. Part of my mom's family still lives there, so I'll be staying with my Aunt Gladys (tia gladys? idek) . One problem - my Spanish is...yeah, let's not talk about it. And I kind of don't feel like leaving my dog for so long (shaddup, he's old). But Argentina! I have to ponder this more.

Stuff About The Pro-Author Wank That's Making the Rounds )
ceitean: (i saw that)
Guys. Guys.

I know this is gonna sound crazy, but I think - I really do think -

I figured out who the Headhunter is.

It was in front of our faces the entire time. I almost can't believe it, but it has to be true. Everything points to her.

The Headhunter )
ceitean: (break and books)

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  )
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... )
ceitean: (sokka: i do not find that funny)
"Unfortunately an issue has arisen where a mod of the two comms was accused of hacking, their account was banned including my own ip address. 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

*ponders becoming a ph mod*
ceitean: (facepalm text)
Dear fandom,

Please don't call it Ozbert.
ceitean: (happyhappyHAPPY)
:D :D :D

1) I have snowflakes! ♥ ♥ ♥

Which is awesome, cuz those are probably the only snowflakes I'll get to see this year -- not much snow in south. XD

2) ahem. WHO DAT. 12-0, baby. <--doesn't even follow football, wtf.

3) ahahahahaha. Ha. Remember the whole 'why does Break look suspiciously like a fresco of the Virgin Mary' thing in the last chapter? Yeah, looks like that was done on purpose, according to Jun Mochizuki's blog. Also, I think she recommends people visit St Peter's Basilica at some point, but the translation's kinda funny.

(omg, I get that PH pulls from a quasi-Victorian age Europe, but why did she pick Break to draw in that pose? XD XD XD)

4) Drabbles! and drabbles that are not drabbles! They will be coming soon.

5) oh god, yuletide. And I just realized I lent out all of my relevant source material to a college friend. She lives in Houston. orz
ceitean: (Default)
Seals and Symbols! There are...only three? )

I think that's all of them. Has anyone else in the manga used a symbol like these? If so, tell me and I'll add!
ceitean: (... ph girls)
Hey, internets. *poke* Where's my PH chapter? The holic chapter was very nice (and early!), but PH is officially past due.

Also, I've decided that Pandora Hearts needs a slogan. )

Title: Why Is A Raven Like A Writing Desk?
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ceitean
Pairing: ...does innuendo count?
Spoilers: none
Words: 1022
Author Notes: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] orchida who was kind enough to beta and [livejournal.com profile] hervictory who helped me think of an appropriate punchline.

Summary: Wherein Sharon is scarred for life, Alice wants to get back to her meat, Gil has back pains, and Break is vastly entertained.

why is a Raven like a writing desk? )
ceitean: (insomnia)
And here we go!

image heavy, List Of Chains )

And there we have it - all Chains from the manga only. I still need to put Cheshire and that Rocking-Fly-Horse Plus Friend in there, but it's good for now.

Though...check out the Gryphon pictures, if you could. I'm...really not sure they're the same. o_o Could be an art thing, but...
ceitean: (i saw that)
A very brief thing about the latest Pandora chapter, and not about the obvious.

Why does Leo... )

oh! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY [profile] eire_endellion! ♥
