Prompt:

Levi + Mikasa: Passing the Mantle/There can only be the one


So...one of my friends strongly believes that Mikasa is gradually building up to be Levi's replacement in the story and that Levi will be killed off at some point. Anons, I want to see a heartwrenching scene where Levi passes on his title as Humanity's Strongest Soldier to Mikasa while he lays dying on the battlefield.

Bonus points for:
-Hints of Levi/Mikasa
-Levi having faith in her capabilities.

C'MON ANONS, GIVE ME FEELS.

This is my favorite character hierarchy for Attack on Titan. After three tries, I just decided to get rid of the ones that didn't interest me that much.

SPEAKING OF ATTACK ON TITAN...

Kaiba.Seto.full.1507164

My day. It is made.
alkonost_storm: (Fang)

It showed in the Atlanta Symphony hall for the seventh and the eighth of June. I went on the eighth.

It. Was. Amazing. Beyond. Words. It was awesome being surrounded by so many Final Fantasy fans (me and Monique even chatted with three sitting in front of us)--some were even cosplaying or had brought merc of the series. Alas I didn't buy anything because the merc at the concert was too pricy for what I had on me at the time.

One of the highlights of the evening was definitely hearing Susan Calloway sing. At first I was a little bothered by the fact that she took deep breaths through her mouth rather than her nose (a sign she hasn't been properly trained) but her powerful voice quickly won me over, especially in her cover of Eyes on Me. MIND. BLOWN. Another song she covered was Suteki da ne which was just as beautiful (though I still prefer Erutan's cover of it).

6/8/2013 Program:


  • Final Fantasy Series: Main theme (Is it bad I was quoting Brentalfloss' cover on it?)

  • Final Fantsy I-III: Medley 2002

  • Final Fantasy VIII: Eyes on Me (Her best performance of the night. But then I'm biased towards VIII)

  • Final Fantasy IV: Battle with the Four Fiends (Is it bad I was hearing this while picturing Hyadain's version?)

  • Final Fantasy V: Main theme

  • Final Fantasy X: Zanarkand (One of my favorite compositions in the FFX OST)

  • Final Fantasy XI: Distant Worlds

  • Final Fantasy VIII: Don't be afraid (at one point they showed the Dollet sequence in the screen and I kept quoting "Chicken wuss!" at seeing Zell get all pissy towards Seifer. There was also one bit where I wondered if someone was playing the game backstage at that very moment XD)

  • Final Fantasy Series: Chocobo Medley 2012 (Definitely one of the more animated moments. Especially when they switched to Mambo de Chocobo from V)

INTERMISSION (where much fangirling/boying was had)


  • Final Fantasy VII: Opening--Bombing Mission

  • Final Fantasy XIII: Blinded by the Light

  • Final Fantasy VI: Phantom Forest

  • Final Fantasy IX: You're Not Alone (One of the highlights of the evening for me. I was even quoting Erutan's cover on it!)

  • Final Fantasy X: Suteki da ne (While I didn't know the lyrics, I did enjoy Susan Calloway's cover)

  • Final Fantasy XI: Vana'diel March

  • Final Fantasy VII: Aerith's Theme (Again, started quoting Erutan)

  • Final Fantasy Series: Battle/Victory Theme Medley

  • Final Fantasy VI: Terra's Theme (I love Terra's theme so inwardly I squeed XD)

ENCORE


  • One Winged Angel (Not only that but the audience got to sing along! I felt we all sounded a bit shy at first but quickly gained more confidence throughout. IT WAS AWESOME.)


Overall, it was a wonderful experience and well worth the money spent in getting the tickets. Hopefully there will be a repeat experience in the future.

On another unrelated note, have a Seto Kaiba AMV with You Know My Name (I'VE BEEN LOOKING EVERYWHERE FOR AN AMV OF SETO KAIBA WITH A JAMES BOND THEME XD):

It's back to Season 4 of YuGiOh!

Mainly for research purposes. Because me and PercentiledOne are at that point in the storyline.

It's a filler season. Normally I hate those.

BUT THIS IS SUCH GOOD FILLER THAT I DON'T MIND ITS EXISTENCE.

WHY...

Turbo Duelist Kaiba

ISN'T THIS A [OFFICIAL] THING!?

Story behind the screencap: someone edited the 5Ds opening to feature the original YGO cast in place of the 5Ds one. As you can see, it works ludicrously well (and Kaiba is wearing the hell out of Jack Atlas' outfit there).

So naturally I'm torn: Psyched because OMG I'M NOT THE ONLY WHO'S CONSIDERED THE WHAT-IF OF YGO DM CAST IN 5DS. But also DESPAIRING FOREVER BECAUSE IT IS NOT OFFICIAL. D=

Yu-Gi-Oh = Yolgrahod (Fire Battle Snow)

Seto Kaiba = Soskest (Blood Tempest)

Katsuya Jonouchi/Joey Wheeler = Kriljot (Brave Maw)/Junwerid (King Praise)

Anzu Mazaki/Tea Gardner = Almoar (Destroyer Terror)/Tiidgolz (Time Stone)

Wanted to see how some of the names would translate into the dragontongue. Went one further with Kaiba's name by giving him a middle name and ending up with this:

Sosreinkest (Blood Roar Tempest)

On a side note, Theoris' initials end up giving her the name of Tiidthur (Time Overlord)... XD

Actually, not really... But that's what happens when I've saved up a 300+ page transcript of my message history with PercentiledOne over the now-expired MSN Messenger onto Word and decide to polish it up a bit. The copy-pasting CAN be done, once you open the message history on IE; the problem was that it copy-pasted the table onto Word as well. So. Tedious.

In the meantime, have some pics:

Given what sort of power corporations have in YGO, I could actually see a crossover with Tiger & Bunny being quite viable. Granted a lot of things would have to be worked out first...

Introducing the adorableness that is the Seto!Pileup. I want to take all these chibis home with me; sure they'd cause trouble, and there would likely be times I'll want to punch them but YE GODS THE ADORABLE IS ENOUGH TO INDUCE CAVITIES.

Found this pic while trying to find a bellydance costume reference for a later scene. Thought it was cute and could picture Theoris wearing this.

Mmm...dat uniform...

...*cough*

Let's ignore the fact that the thought that brought about this idea in the first place was the mental image itself mmmkay?

His name would be Demian Kaiser. He'd be the leader of a tank team (with Noa and Mokuba's incarnations as teammates. SURPRISINGLY NO ONE IS RELATED TO ONE ANOTHER. For the record, Nazi!Noa is the spotter and Nazi!Mokuba is the mechanic. Demian handles both driving and shooting) and his tank would bear the affectionate nickname of "Fraulein Blitz." It may or may not have a BEWD decal on the side. Allied!Yugi would be his rival (DUR) and lead a tank team of his own. HIS tank bears the epithet of Dark Maiden and probably has a DMG decal on its side.

I mostly embellished but the credit for this incarnation goes to PercentiledOne. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE'RE OVERTHINKING THINGS A BIT.

It would be with Ishizu and Yami.

I'm not big on pairing Yami and Kaiba but I do like Trustshipping (Seto/Ishizu). And now I seriously want to play around with this OT3 and make it work.

Problem is, I need prompts. It would be ideal to get a prompt from LK himself but considering he didn't seem to know what I meant by prompt when I asked...XD

HELP ME OUT GUYS!

By happy accident I found episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Season 0 uploaded on Youtube. And now I totally get why Toff was going ga-ga over Season 0!Yami Yugi HNNNNG DAT VOICE I'm nearly done with the season and now want to watch the rest so I can make comparisons with the 4Kids dub. Anyone know where I can find them? Also I've gotten used to Season 0!Kaiba...except when he's trying to act nice because then he's just a total creeper and the trope of "WE WANT OUR JERK BACK" starts blaring in my head...

So, I reiterate:

Anyone know where I can find the Japanese dub for the rest of the show? Preferably with English subtitles.

Aka the shipping label I've given to the Seto Kaiba/OC pairing in the rp I'm doing with my friend PercentiledOne (JW%). Participants: Seto Kaiba and my OC, Theoris Takeda.

Now, I'll start off by saying that Theoris turned out very different from her predecessors (OCs who were meant to be paired up with Kaiba but got remade again and again until scrapped altogether and Theoris was born), not just in looks but also in personality: the OCs that came before had incredibly powerful senses when it came to supernatural things and were strong believers of it, as well as being fairly competent in their use of InsertMillenniumItem here. They embraced their destiny.

Theoris on the other hand, is cut from a different cloth than these. Where the former embraced the destiny they were given, Theoris is actively fleeing hers and while bearing the Macguffin Item known as the Sacred Menat, she refuses to learn how to wield it simply because it's tied to Destiny. It's not until post-Battle City that she's finally motivated to start taking steps to mastering the use of the Menat. The reason: protecting Seto. If watching his back includes keeping an eye out for supernatural threats, so be it.

On to the ship itself.

From Seto's end of the pairing, his attraction stems from when he interviews Theoris for a job at Kaiba Corp (she's applying for a secretary position). She's given five minutes to prove why she should be hired and during those five minutes, he presents her with a chess puzzle where White is under threat of being checkmated. Of course, the way the puzzle is set up, there is no outcome where White comes out the victor: it is unwinnable.

It doesn't stop Theoris from trying to solve it all the same. Her first move is to move a knight to a position where it can intercept any of the pieces coming for the White King. This results in her getting six more turns to delay White's defeat. In her second and last move, she decides to be bold and aggressive by moving in a bishop to capture the Black King, as the path is clear. Of course, due to the puzzle being unwinnable she still loses...but it is enough to attract a certain CEO's interest.

For Theoris, her attraction is initially admiration and respect for Seto Kaiba. While not aware of the whole story, the way he took charge of his own fate strikes a chord within her and gives her hope that, even entrenched as she is in the fate she's running from, she can do the same. There's also the fact that he happens to be her type: arrogant, and capable of proving to the world why he's within his rights to be so while the Gods look away.

Now, both sides of the ship have a mutual attraction for one another...The frustrating part is that neither is the best at opening up about their feelings (though Theoris has an advantage over Seto due to having been in a relationship before) and both believe it's just a pipe dream. It takes a trip back in time to 1486 Germany (where they meet their DotR incarnations)--which Seto treats as a coma-induced dream throughout most of their stay--for the two to come clean about their feelings. Seto's treatment of the experience, in fact, is the source of origin for their shipping label: Dreamshipping.

As for why I'm writing about these two? Well, turns out rping their dynamic is a lot of fun, if at times frustrating (in part because PercentiledOne nails his portrayal of Seto Kaiba right on the head and Seto Kaiba has a tendency towards frustrating people). The vibe they give off as a pairing (and this includes their DotR incarnations) is also interesting: you get a sense that these two can be rather selfish in their love for one another yet still be considerate and caring. It's also fun to wax hypotheticals about their reactions to certain situations.

In short, this is a very fun pairing and I look forward to exploring them further. =)

BUT THEN I SAW THE HOBBIT FILM.

AND IT. WAS. GLORIOUS.

THEY DID NOT JUST STAY FAITHFUL TO THE BOOK THEY EXPANDED ON STUFF WE NEVER SEE.

AND THORIN. OH EM GEE THORIIIN.

I SUDDENLY FIND I DO NOT MIND BEARDS AS MUCH AS I DID BEFORE. 8DDD

Will be using my mom's pc until they find out exactly what's wrong with my router and if it will have to be repaired or not. Hopefully this resolves itself quickly ><

On a completely unrelated note....According to TV Tropes, Leon and Kain Highwind had a lovechild and he appears in FFXIII-2!

How, one may ask? Well, first off he's going to be voiced by Kain's VA from Duodecim. Second, one character designer said that his appearance had been inspired by Leon...Ergo, they had a lovechild! XD

Admittedly I blame the trailers for this but I already want to ship Caius and Lightning as a foe yay ship. That bad?
