Half-assed anniversary post (7 years on LJ wow!!!). Haven't actually posted for the whole year. Not a paid user anymore since December. I guess I have definitely abandonned LJ? But I do still read my flist and I haven't really picked up DW or tumblr, I just use them as utilities, not to meet other fans or have a community feeling. So have I grown out of fandom? It's not really that either, because I'm still pretty obsessed with fandomy stuff. So I don't know. I'm just a bigger lurker than ever.

Said fandomy stuff:
- Homestuck, still pretty strong. I'm starting to save less fanarts though? But I continue the translation. Damn proud to have at least converted someone to the fullest.
- Am eying toward Teen Wolf, because to my surprise I really enjoyed season 1 when it was on TV and it looks like a very dedicated fanbase, what with their shipping and rec lists! I can't bring myself to download anything though, so I'm too behind to fully embrace it. (Might be a more or less unconscious self-defense strategy.)
- I haven't watched any new anime. I still regularly buy manga, even new series, but that's pretty much it. Didn't go to Japan Expo this year because body reasons.
- Ah yeah, the only thing I downloaded of all year was the first season of Push Girls. It doesn't count for fandom.
- Am at the last boss (I think???) of KH 3D. Then I'll finish Cave Story, I am at the last boss too but I might replay it to get a better ending? Still haven't bought pkm B&W2 but I'm planning to. Instead I'm playing Alan Wake on PC, even if I already watched it all in let's play...

My health is reaching new lows so it is difficult for me to cheer up to the fullest. It's probably affecting my internet life too. LJ is doing its best to make everybody leave so I have no idea how next year's post will look like, if there's one. But I'm still glad to say hello to you, if you're still reading this :)

- New obsession of the year is Homestuck ahahah. It's pretty obvious.
- I kinda stopped watching anime (I was looking forward Natsume Yuujinchou new season and Ao no Exorcist, and didn't even watched the end of their series) and manga as well... I think there's only KHR I follow weekly now. And I haven't bought new manga volumes since May.
- Maybe the two points above are related.
- At any rate I've been working pretty hard on Homestuck-FR and it does takes a lot of time.
- So does tumblr. Stupid new site so convenient to get a ton of fanarts!
- KHR did survive well compared to what I was saying last year. I really like the Shimon after all :)
- LJ was not as much as a dick as usual I think? I don't remember particular scandals.
- I still don't post a lot, but hey I'm still here.

Watched the End of Act yesterday morning on Livestream before rushing to work, and saw it a few times yesterday evening when I came back. Wow. I have hardly read any analysis about it so I don't know if my thoughts are common or not, but here we go:

Did you check the new shirts and hoodies? The descriptions of the previous ones say things like "as worn by John, the Heir of Breath". But it is only "as worn by ???, the ??? of Mind" for the new ones. What if it is because we won’t see the other God Tier designs on previously introduced Heroes, but on new ones? What if Act 6 focused more on previous scratched sessions (the Ancestors, and maybe the kids’ Guardians as well) and some of them had made it God Tier? This is my biggest hope for Act 6 (besides everybody managing to survive).

[EDIT] :O

This is a first post about my holidays last week! Near the place I lived was a small town called Hunawihr where a “butterfly garden” was built. They have greenhouses with exotic butterflies and plants and participate in programs of species preservation. They receive chrysalises from all over the world and use controlled chambers to develop them. So in addition to being able to wander around free butterflies in the greenhouses, visitors can also witness their emergence from their chrysalis :D

I love flowers and butterflies so I adored this place and spent hours there.

Just learned about the Delicious redesign through ff_press. They’re taking it pretty badly and I can understand them! My Kingdom Heart rec list disappeared into thin air and I don’t know if it’s temporary or not. My general rec list, even if it’s not on such a large scale as ff_press, still lost most of its tags and of course all of its bundles. I would have to go through each link and check the tags one by one if I want to get my data coherent again.
Which is not going to happen anytime soon because the new navigation is buggy as hell! I keep getting errors or pages I did not requested.

And anyway, what’s the point of a rec list without tags and bundles? I could try to “stack” per fandom but it’s going to be a pain and a lot of fandoms are only featured once so… A stack of rare fandoms? I’ll have to edit it all the time when a fandom gets recced enough. Stack per genre? Bigger pain and completely useless. I don’t really know what to do besides see if the issues will be fixed (ahah yeah right the new owners openly said that they think the previous organization of the site sucked) or if a fandom bookmark site will appear. But I don’t want to depend on AO3 because I get 503 errors way too often…

First thing first, I’m going to look through the help if I can find how to ask them where my KH account is. Hope for success: below zero.

[EDIT] Could I have been stupid enough to import from Yahoo only one account and forget to transfer the second one to avos? It's possible, but that would be pretty dumb, even for me. And now I have no mean to check if I did, argh! *fumes*

Hi everyone, this is an update from my shiny netbook while I’m on holidays! I’m in the East of France, in the Vosges Mountains. For a week! I left on a whim, let’s just say that I didn’t do anything holiday-ish during the summer and then I realized that as next year will be extremely busy at work, if I don’t go now I’ll never go.
I’m extremely bad at organizing holidays, no idea why.

Anyway, the area is beautiful and it looks like the whole week is going to have a beautiful weather, so yay! I’m going to do nothing but read or stitch while looking at lakes and smelling pinales. And sleep. I even have wifi \o/ Life is glorious.

I didn’t say it yet, but I’m very very excited for KH3D. This crossover looks so shiny! I thought it would be forever stuck in the realm of fanfictions, and it’s going to be canon!! And my favorite world is back :3 I’m curious to see what else will be new, and which other Disneys we’ll get. B-but I’m still reluctant to buy a 3DS, so I don’t know what I’m going to do :( Maybe like I did with BBS, borrow the platform from someone and just buy the game. I just need to find someone owning a 3DS first...

The only other game that completely picked my interest lately is Bioshock Infinite. I don’t really like the voice they gave to the main character but the more I see about Elisabeth the more I love her. And overall, visually it’s breathtaking. I can’t wait!

I ordered a netbook :D I feel a little ashamed because it’s the first time I buy something that expensive *without really needing it*, I mean, my tower computer still works perfectly. But my old laptop is 7 years old now, and I did all I could to improve its speed yet it takes 15 minutes to start and even simply browsing the internet makes it regularly crash. Every time I had to use it, I was longing for a new one.

I had a lot of problems with my car during all summer, and initially it was supposed to cost me a little over 1000 euros, but in the end they managed to fix it (??? I’m not entirely convinced of it yet) for less than 200, so I have money. And HP was having an offer for customers buying a computer along with accessories… How could I resist? (I also bought a headset and I’m going to try using Skype! It’ll make playing Portal 2 with osakapowaa much easier ahah)

Now, how should I call it? If I name it accordingly to my newest fandom then there are several possibilities:

Here is my report of this year’s Japan-Expo! And it’s only one week late, ahah, I’m awesome. Picture heavy because osakapowaa helped me hunting down cosplays all four days even if I personally went only on Thursday.
