...SO HAVE MY ATTEMPT AT TRANSLATION A LES MIS SONG IN SPANISH. Input would be greatly appreciated!

Song: Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
Musical: Les Miserables
Sung by: Marius
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken.
There’s a pain goes on and on.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone.
Here they talked of revolution.
Here it was they lit the flame.
Here they sang about tomorrow
And tomorrow never came.
From the table in the corner
They could see a world reborn
And they rose with voices ringing
And I can hear them now!
The very words that they had sung
Became their last communion
On this lonely barricade at dawn.
Oh my friends, my friends forgive me
That I live and you are gone.
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken.
There’s a pain goes on and on.
Phantom faces at the windows.
Phantom shadows on the floor.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more.
Oh my friends, my friends, don’t ask me
What your sacrifice was for
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will sing no more

Sillas Abandonadas )
Translator: Alkonost Storm
Hay una pena de cual no hablo
Un dolor que sigue eterno
En estas sillas abandonadas
Mis amigos no seran jamas.
Aqui hablaron de desafio
Aqui fue donde el fuego prendio
Aqui cantaron del manana
Y manana nunca existio.
Desde la mesa en el rincon
Imaginaban un nuevo mundo
Y cantaban en son alto
Aun los oigo ya!
El himno que cantaron
Fue su ultima communion
En esta barricada al amanecer.
Companeros, perdonen
Que yo viva y ustedes no
Hay una pena de cual no hablo
Un dolor que sigue eterno.
Fantasmas en las ventanas
Y fantasmas sobre el suelo
En estas sillas abandonadas
Donde no reuniran jamas.
Oh amigos no me pidan
Que justifique tu sacrificio
En estas sillas abandonadas
Donde no cantaran jamas.

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

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.

You are a Badass Uke!

Other uke admire you, some seme fear you. Despite your sometimes flaming appearance, you can even fool other people into thinking you are seme with your mischievous, manipulative attitude, but when push comes to shove, your true submissive nature emerges. It takes a seme with enough intensity to challenge you and keep you satisfied, and your perfect match, the Don't Fuck With Me Seme, knows that all that naughty teasing just means you want the punishment.

I gained a level! 8D

Dear Warrior of Light Siegfried:

You will not win. I will make sure of that. Even in this prison, with what powers that are available to me, I will not stop until I have taken all you hold dear and broken you utterly.

Dear Shantotto:

Well played. However, some would call your stratagem 'running away.'

Dear Bahamut:

Your caves are most spacious and vast. Your hoard is mine now, by the way.

Dear Cid Lufaine:

Enjoy your new corporeal form.

Dear (Past) Me:

Sealing up those aspects was probably the best plan regarding Cosmos and Chaos.

Dear (Future) Me:

Be wary of the gods you made. Even tools can turn on their wielder.

Dear Bartandelus:

Your L'cie remembers his name. If you know what's good for you you'll fix that.

Dear Marilith:

Your scales are so lustruous and are most becoming on you. Your skin contrasts with your hair in a way that is most attractive. If you ever tire of the company of your cohorts, I would have no objections in showing you the size of my...hoard.

Dear Kraken:

I'm collecting on that favor you owe me. That L'cie toy of Bartandelus is a formidable opponent and a font of courage for the Warrior of Light. Break her...however you see fit.

Dear Claire:

To defy your master is to defy me. Holding such sway over him...You will regret this.

[Notes: A lot of this is based off of a DDFF rp me and Railenthe are doing while other parts are lifted from the game. While the bit with Marilith does have some basis in the rp as well, the idea of Shinryu/Marilith is very much crack. The mention of Shantotto is a reference to her DLC in the Japanese version, where she pretty much finds a way to escape the cycles. Also, the prompts aren't in order, and there's obvious mentions of WoL/Lightning.]

Tried it out with my Bayonetta OC. It's ridiculously fun to fill out. I might use it more to keep track of my OCs.

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)


  • 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):

She is very partial to spider-morphs but occasionally seeks out the company of hellhounds and minotaurs.

You start trying to cross it over with ANYTHING. I swear, I think there's a plotbunny infestation here!

Latest plotbunny?

YuGiOh: Duellistes du Vodoun

The premise: Yugioh in a possible alternate setting, with overtones of Vodoun. Several cult factions use vodoun magic against one another, their main objective being to bring their particular Loa into more prominence. The struggle between the Petro Iwa faction and the Ghede Iwa faction is particularly heated.

The inspiration: Dr. Facilier Baron Samedi!Kaiba. Want. Someone draw this please?

I actually am really tempted to explore this further by writing a fic but I'm already caught up with several projects (including that Persona/Borderlands 2 fic, which I need to get a move on). Also I'm worried that despite whatever research I do, I might offend someone if my attempts turn out too 'Hollywood Voodoo'.

Personal headcanon for this: Due to the mental image of Baron Samedi!Kaiba, I posit that he leads the cult faction worshipping the Ghede Iwa. Also, headcanon insists that he serves as the horse for Baron Samedi. Said headcanon also maintains that if ships here include Kaiba/OC, then Theoris serves as Maman Brigitte's horse./shotdeadtrampled

As for the leader of the Petro Iwa cult faction...Obviously it's Yugi, dur. Or maybe Joey. That seems closer if only because red and black are part of his color motif thanks to Red Eyes. Of course going by that logic, Yugi should be in charge of the Ghede Iwa cult faction because his color motifs are black and purple....SCREW THE MOTIFS WE HAVE BARON SAMEDI!KAIBA.

alkonost_storm: (Trustshipping)
Is it just me or does that sound like the title to one of those smut novels?/shot


So last night during a particularly steamy scene, PercentiledOne posted this gem:

Where's the quote feature LJ!? )

Cannot unsee Older!Kaiba having an awkward conversation about reach and flexibility with his child now. Head!canon insists it would be the second child with Theoris, if they have another (besides Hanae K. Kaiba anyway), and it'd be a boy. :=D:

Yes I'm aware they're not even at the point where they'd look into having a family, if they ever do that. Headcanon likes to overplan

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.

You can tell where most of my attention was focused on in this episode.

Where Avion wonders what the fuck he's been summoned into
What the flying fuck he was summoned into.

Where GX shows Cartoon Physics
By manipulating the splitscreen! Then again, he is half-dinosaur...(?)

Sweatdropping Sign
Jaden's sense of direction can apparently give Ryoga's a run for its money.

Dino eye
It's never a good thing when THAT shows itself...

Of Avion's sweatdrop!

The moment I see this screencap? Slashed. FOREVER. ABYDOS/JUDAI IS CRACK OTP

Even Zane finds this silly
When even Zane is sweatdropping, you know things have gotten too silly.

Title: Bragging Contest
Fandom: Dissidia Final Fantasy
Characters: Warrior of Light, Shinryu
Words: 82
Rating: K
Summary: Before the final battle, the Warrior of Light exchanges words with his most formidable opponent.Very short piece, heavily inspired by Bilbo's confrontation with Smaug the Terrible in The Hobbit.

"My teeth and claws, the sharpest swords.
My scales, the most enduring armor.
My magic is an oncoming storm, thou cannot hope to outrun it.
My breath shall be your end."

"The sharper the sword, the more brittle the blade.
Strike it enough times, and even the strongest armor will give way to my sword.
I'm no good at magic but my comrades will pick up the slack.
As for your breath, today will be the last day you ever draw any."

The Issue

A fire has recently ripped through Storm's End, destroying homes and businesses alike. Now the debate rages as to who should receive the bulk of the relief fund.
The Debate

  1. "The fire burned thousands of ordinary people out of house and home!" wails Roger Cruz, an affected resident, "If the government doesn't help the average Joe, then what good is it at all? We need that relief fund to repair the damages! I'm sure the fat cats in the commercial district will pitch a fit, but they're the only ones who could afford enough insurance coverage."

  2. "Oh, the wasted money!" moans Gertie James, owner of Basket-case for Baskets. "It was storefronts and restaurants that bore the brunt of the fire, and they're the ones that need help now! Do you have any idea how flammable baskets are? If we don't get the relief we're entitled to, the economy is going to sink. And then where will these citizens be? In a rebuilt house without a job, that's where!"

  3. Chris Hamilton, a noted anarchist, is appalled at the whole debate. "Relief fund? Giving money?! Now the government has to choose which social class to favor, and here's the big punch line, there is no right choice! We need to do away with the relief fund altogether, slash taxes and leave the people and businesses to rebuild without government meddling. Yes, there will be some 'I don't have any money' sob stories. Boo-freaking-hoo. It's not the government's job to bail them out because they failed to prepare."

  4. "I always said there's an opportunity in every disaster," councils Randy Goethe, your Minister of Underhanded Affairs. "We're not doing so hot in the polls right now. This fire is only going to put more of a strain on us. Now as I remember, the good ol' Minority Leader is head of the Storm's End Oversight Committee. Let's shift the focus onto it being his screw up, have a trial by media and he'll be indicted by next week. The public will burn him at the stake instead of us!"

The Government Position

The government has yet to formalize a position on this issue.

I have a ministry to cover just about every political scenario. Figures. XD
