This is more for my reference, but if anyone out there is curious as to which journals on dear_mun are actually me, this is pretty much the all inclusive listing of all my journals and where they are or have been played (or the ones I'll admit to at least).

Warning, it's a long list.

Cut for work related rantingCollapse )

Anyway, I'm wanting to try out some new coloring techniques on some manga panels so I'm taking requests. Just give me a link to a manga panel, and if you aren't sure if I know the canon, references would be awesome! I'll try to get one panel colored per person, but may do more if I have time and will try to icon each one too.

Day 2 - Your favorite character.

And considering how many games I've played and how many characters I've been exposed to, damn this is hard.

So I'll just try and narrow it down to 5 characters which is hard enough! Characters are in no particular order:

Yuber (Suikoden I-III) - He'll probably always be my favorite in the Suikoden series just because I tend to love villains, and he's a very interesting one. He seems like the typical out to destroy and kill everyone sort of villain, but we get enough hintings that there may be more to him than that.

I just wish we'd get more damn it. One thing that would totally convince me to buy a PS3 would be an announcement of Suikoden VI coming to the US on PS3 and it has Yuber in it. Yes, I'd totally buy the PS3 just for that.

Yuri Hyuga (Shadow Hearts and Shadow Hearts: Covenant) - Best video game protagonist ever! He's just hilariously funny, kind of an idiot at times, but has a heart of gold for all of his assholish tendencies. In my eyes, he's what makes those two games awesome and the fact that he's not in the third game is a major reason why I dislike it.

Dekar (Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals & Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals) - Never seen a character like him. He's meant to be the idiot of the party, but really that's more Guy's role. No, Dekar really just doesn't fit into any typical category for party members and he's both a comic relief type character, and the insightful one. He just goes between being a total moron and actually being really insightful, and yet it works for him. And seriously, some of the craziest things come out of that boy's mouth (like his comment with a completely serious face about how tiny his bikini is)

Meis Triumph (Thousand Arms) - Another absolutely hilarious protagonist. He's a big part of what makes that game totally awesome. It's not often that the womanizer is the main, but it works in this game.

Erim (Lufia series) - And the only female who is going to be among my favorites. She's actually a very well written female character and is just amazing even for this time period, and especially so considering the Lufia games were originally created in the SNES era where characters like her just didn't exist. I'd say more, but it gets into huge spoilers for the series and I know a few people here will be playing it for the first time with the new DS release.

Figured I'll try the 30 video game meme that has been going around my flist, because I need to post more.

Day 1 - Very first videogame.

You know, I actually do not remember the name of the game, or even enough to really describe it much. I remember my brother had an Atari 2600 that I got to play from time to time (he hogged it quite a bit) and I played some games on there, but beats me what I actually played. I'm pretty sure Mario Bros and Donkey Kong were among them (realize, I was 4 or 5 at this time, my memory isn't that wonderful)

So I'll go with what I remember. If PC games count, then it was some lemonade stand game on the Apple IIe when I was 6. Don't know the name of it, but I remember it was basically a simulation of being a kid and running a lemonade stand and you had to try and make a profit from it despite crappy weather and stuff like that. Was fun for a kid. We actually had a ton of games for the IIe, so it was definitely fun for a kid because I had more games than I had time to finish.

If we're counting console games that I remember, Super Mario Bros then. Played that at a friend's house and thought it was fun so I begged my mom to buy an NES. Took some convincing, but me and my brother eventually did convince her. We had to share it, but he couldn't hog it by having it in his room. I eventually bought out his share of it and got ownership of all his games for $50 (same happened later with his Genesis, both times it was a great deal, he stopped caring after that so future consoles were completely mine)

And now on to RL stuff. Been busy with work and playing new games, working a "normal" schedule is most definitely overrated. I'd go to a weird late night schedule, but working from home requires no background noise. I have roommates, I can't guarantee no background noise after 5pm. I have tried talking to the roommates and explaining this, they don't get it, so I'll be continuing to work 8-4:30 shifts.

And I do recommend to anyone here who has a DS, go get Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals. Very good game, definitely among my favorites for the DS now.

But in good news, looks like if I get my normal amount of birthday money, I'll be able to finally afford to get my own xbox 360. And considering who I work for now, I can count it as a tax write off for my home office (no, I seriously can, having my own will be helpful for my job). I can do the same for my new laptop (because most of why I needed new laptop was because old one didn't run work programs very well).

So recommendations on games? I'll probably have $125 to play with for buying games, so likely can afford 2 games, maybe a third if it's cheap. I only own Tales of Vesperia at the moment. I'm considering Infinite Undiscovery, but am open to suggestions. I'd prefer RPGs and nothing that requires online multiplayer to enjoy fully or a hard drive (I'm getting the 4GB model, I'm fully aware that games that require a hard drive like Halo Reach don't fully work on it).

Rest of the daysCollapse )

That D&D meme everyone on my flist is doingCollapse )

Well, may as well give an update on random life stuffs. Will be coming off hiatus soon at luceti and I very much am glad I took the break. It gave me a chance to get stuff together and focus more on getting used to my job and the hours. I was getting rather sick of spending too much time sleeping, but that seems to be fixed.

Really, I was feeling pretty crappy there a lot at the beginning of the month, and finally got over that. Amazingly, the problem fixed itself by me starting to take vitamin supplements. Seriously, for all that people tend to disregard them a lot, they made a huge difference. I'm getting less migraines, not feeling so tired all the time no matter how much I sleep. I'm honestly feeling better than I have the past few years, and it costs less than a dollar a day for the vitamins.

Finished off Suikoden V finally, and amusingly enough, I kind of want to play a character from it that I really didn't intend to want to play. Go figure, I'd still love to play Jeane, but have no confidence with her. I have confidence with who I am likely going to app, just worried about if I may run into a conflict of interest playing her and Yuber. It's unlikely, but still very possible. Argh, why do I have to be the only one left with a True Rune bearer now?

Yeah, may as well fess up if anyone besides Alisa watches dear_mun and the Suikoden tag. falenansun was me.

As far as my opinion on Suikoden V, I'll just say I prefer III. V is a good game, and I'll give it that it does indeed have a good ending, but there were many faults to it and it felt like it was trying too hard to be like II and falling short in almost every attempt which just really didn't help the game.

But now, I think I'm going to try and slowly go through my long list of games that I haven't finished yet. I decided to start with the PSX games since that has the largest amount of games that aren't remakes. Currently working on Thousand Arms, and I don't get why in the hell I didn't finish that game originally. It's absolutely hilarious, very unique overall even if the story is a bit cliche. The game just doesn't take itself seriously and I find myself laughing at some of the lines that you can choose for Meis (the main character). Definitely worth playing, and this time I will finish it off.

And it's a pretty easy game overall, so I'll take suggestions on what to play/finish next from the list. Just anything besides Vesperia, the NES games and Game Boy games (because I cannot play them due to not having the console and/or the games).

So yeah, probably dropping a few characters when I come back and going to have myself be at 3 characters once I app someone from Suikoden V. Still going to go through with the app for Dalamar at trans_9, just need to get off my ass and finish the sample already, and do something about his icons. Yeah, I'm glad to have the ones I have, but I know very well, I'll likely need more. Of course, good luck finding a good PB for a dark haired elf wizard.

And now I better shut up before I go over the character limit here or something.

Since I got talked into finally making an actual tutorial with the method I've used to color my recent icons, thought I'd be nice and share it with my flist since I know a bunch of you love coloring manga for whatever reason maybe it can help some of you guys learn some tricks to use in your own styles.

Yes, that's my icon community that I don't ever use because I don't tend to make icons except for personal use.

And a meme that I stole from meowzy_chan who stole it from eggstasy

01; Who are you?
02; Are we friends?
03; When and how did we meet?
04; Do you have a crush on me?
05; Would you kiss me?
06; Describe me in one word.
07; What was your first impression?
08; Do you still think that way about me now?
09; What reminds you of me?
10; If you could give me anything what would it be?
11; How well do you know me?
12; When's the last time you saw me?
13; Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
14; Are you going to put this on your LiveJournal and see what I say about you?

Just a few cute memes here, first one ganked from daathic

▮ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
▮ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
▮ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on

I'll just link it

As far as why I'm using it? Well, I felt I needed a change from the one I had been using for a few years that was for a fandom I don't care as much about anymore. The fanart I used is very pretty and it's size was very ideal to adjust to fit a 1280x800 resolution.

And well, it's the Destroyers drawn very well. Who can resist that? I wish I could color that nicely, seriously.

And then the meme that it seems most of the RPers on my flist have done:

Writer's Block: Yuber and Nu 4ever!

May 12th, 2010 (09:32 am)

Fanfiction: Do you love it or hate it, or are you totally indifferent? Why?

Feel free to giggle at my subject change there folks in Luceti

Well, considering how long I've been writing it, really can't hate it or be completely indifferent to it.

As a whole, I don't hate the idea of fanfiction. What I hate is certain fanfic writers and fans. I know I lost a lot of respect for some fans who told me that "realism doesn't matter" when justifying a pairing that if you think logically based on what the game's setting gave, makes no sense and would make the characters miserable. I hated the fans who would harass me to help them with their fanfiction after I already said I had no time and wasn't even interested in the fic.

But that's just fandom for you. You'll have the writers who don't put any effort into their writing, don't bother to keep the characters IC, and numerous other annoying habits. There are definitely some amazing fanfic writers that if they ever wrote something original and got it published, I'd likely buy their work in a heartbeat. I know that applies to most of my flist since a lot of you guys are really wonderful writers.

Help with finding art

May 3rd, 2010 (01:45 am)

I seem to be failing with my search of Pixiv here, so if any of you guys on my flist here who know good sources for Suikoden fanart could help it would be great, because I'm honestly surprised I'm not finding fanart for who I'm looking for.

Anyway, looking for some art of Jeane outside of her official art and the few panels in the Suikoden III manga (have the whole thing, will color those soon while I'm on a manga coloring kick). Seriously, why I can't find fanart for a character who is female and wears that little clothing is beyond my comphrehension, but it seems to be the case.

Yes Luceti folks, I'm highly considering her for when apps open, already have a journal for her even. Yes, this means I'm going to be playing Suikoden V now, not sure if I'm going to finish IV unless we get a cast, but might watch a playthrough of it at least since I just suck at the game.

March 31st, 2010 (10:47 pm)

Yoinked this from ivy_chan because it was too funny to resist:

1) First, make a list of fifteen characters. Keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?', 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?', 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?' 'Write a drabble in which three and eleven fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Have fun guys!

A few random RP memes

March 1st, 2010 (03:59 am)

Ganked from like half my flist it seems:

List your characters. Then pick a trait from each one that the two of you share and explain it. If you don't share a trait with any of them, put N/A.

Cut for icon images and allCollapse )

And another:

Ask me about any character I've played, and I'll let you know what drew me to them in the first place, what I like most about them, least about them, my favorite RP memory (if I can remember it!) and if I'm likely to ever write them again.

Complete muse list is here

And ganked from daathic

List any characters that you have considered roleplaying, but never have. Explain why you like the character, then explain what it is that keeps you from playing them, be it a lack of canon knowledge, lack of confidence, or too many people playing that character!

Cut for lengthCollapse )

To whomever renewed this account for another two months, thank you very much!

Random stuff and a meme

January 29th, 2010 (08:29 pm)

And this is tl;dr as usual for me when I actually write an entry that isn't all meme.

As usual, Walmart attempts to screw me over. I still haven't gotten my W-2 forms in the mail, then I remembered they have a website to view paystubs and all. So I was sneaky and got my W-2.

Did my tax return, have a $934 refund coming my way. It's sad, Walmart paid me so little that I actually qualified for Earned Income Credit this year (basically, you have to be making jack and squat to get this as a single person with no children). Yeah, fuck you Walmart, you won't be getting any more of my money unless I'm seriously desperate (they are the only place open 24 hours after all, but the other grocery stores are open til 1am).

So glad I quit that hellhole. Yeah, it sucks being broke because of being unemployed, but with those shitty hours, the lack of sleep, the sheer pain they were putting me in, I'm better off. Already have a job interview on Monday with a staffing agency that I'm told is pretty good about keeping their people working. Maybe I can actually get myself some office work that will actually use my skills rather than menial physical labor. I'm getting too old for jobs requiring physical labor, seriously.

And it seems my bank is being dumb. Last time I checked the balance, I had nearly $300, since then I got paid another $300, yet my debit card got declined today, bank must be having issues again. Oh well, will have to see what is going on by going to the bank tomorrow. I have a check from my parents for $200 that I've been meaning to cash for like oh, a month now. Thing is, I hate going to the bank with a serious passion.

But if I get myself a new job soon, I'm going to use that tax refund towards getting a new laptop (and the rest that is left to go towards paying back my roommate, I owe him far too much money and barely made a dent in it the past year, he's pretty understanding of the situation once I explained though, as long as I'm making an effort to find a job and make an effort to pay him back, we're cool). I also found out that through my bank's reward program, I have enough points saved up to get $225 in gift cards from Best Buy (or also Target). Hmm, not bad, I was willing to spend $500 for a laptop once I had the money saved, that will let me get a nice one.

Anyway, that's the RL stuff. RP wise, things are going well. Having loads of fun with the current event and got threads with all my characters pretty much during it. Still failing at a third person sample for the character I am going to app at sirenspull and my reserve runs out on the 31st. This sucks, I shouldn't be blanking this badly, but really this character is so not the type I normally play (damsel in distress type, too nice for her own good, can't fight her way out of a paper sack, etc. Yeah, basically the complete opposite of Yuber.) Oh well, will figure something out, I'm sure. Or just drop the idea entirely.

Erim is a blast to play though. I admit, sometimes I'm so sorely tempted to just drop everyone but Yuber, Flik, Folken and Erim at luceti. Those four are the ones I have the most fun with and people don't seem to gripe at me about them. I can keep up with seven, but it just seems that the ones who I'm struggling with, I ignore in favor of the ones I enjoy more.

Edit: Well, looks like I won't be apping at sirenspull, my castmate to be dropped and my character will not work in such a setting without someone to keep her out of trouble. Maybe if I ever do decide to drop someone at luceti I'll take her over there just because it would be so funny to play Yuber's complete opposite there too.

And now, a long winded meme where I rant and gush a lot about video games and really show my age a bit.

That video game meme going around my flistCollapse )

If anyone wants to comment there, I'd definitely appreciate it. Especially if anyone can tell me where in the hell anons are getting that the FFVI cast seems "bland" and "mediocre" because the constant bitching on the memes is not exactly easy to ignore and whoever is doing it sure doesn't seem willing to help when I would like to make Celes better if I can.

I honestly have no idea if it was an anon gift, if I did it in my sleep, or who did it because LJ decided to be major fail and not let me know and I just noticed today that my account should have been expired as of oh, three days ago?

And Happy New Year to everyone!

And welcome to the folks from luceti who friended me recently via the meme or on their own. Glad to have you as friends code_gal, herrjustice, fuckyeahfish, whiteadelphi, meowzy_chan, dynast_harmonia and luna_hoshino! This is definitely a momentous short entry for me :)

But for those who do RP if you haven't heard already, luceti is having our fourth wall weekend and I'd definitely love to have some friends come by and bug some of my characters.

I only have posts for three of the six so far, but as soon as I get the rest up, I'll link them here.

Yuber Flik Celes

Will eventually have up posts for Rune, Nephrite and Folken. Yuber's is worth reading though, there are definitely already some hilarious threads on there even if you don't know the canon. Yuber's basically a crazy demon who is interested only in bloodshed, chaos and destruction.

I can't believe one of the players actually asked Yuber if he needed a hug, damn his post is full of epic win.

Yay for cleaning being done!

May 10th, 2009 (01:53 am)

Finally finished cleaning up the old bedroom, well mostly. There are still a few things that need to be done, but that is mostly getting stuff into storage totes. No more having to deal with stuff like dead mice and mouse poop.

Yeah, mouse infestations are not nice at all.

In good news, I actually found a bunch of things I had been looking for. For instance, I had been looking for my copy of Tales of Phantasia so I could actually get around to finishing the game (um, yeah, I got to Dhaos' Castle and kinda stopped). Seems that and the Phantasy Star Collection feel behind my TV stand which is why they went missing all that time. So maybe I can also get around to beating one of those games besides Phantasy Star IV.

Though I admit, I'm not so sure I want to go and get my butt kicked by Dark Force in Phantasy Star II again. And though I recall having seen the guide for it somewhere while cleaning, not sure where I stuck it. It's probably on my bookshelf that still remains in my old bedroom (I know that's where the Phantasy Star III guide is).

So instead I'm replaying Tales of Phantasia first. I'm at the Catacombs and about to get my ass handed to me by Dhaos and get sent to the past. I admit, it's kinda a fun bit of nostalgia since ToP was actually my first Tales game (and yes, the GBA version too).

And I did giggle at the lame voice acting this time around. Still, I don't think it makes it a bad game or anything, it's just funny. I don't expect good quality voice acting for a GBA game, really I'm amazed it even has voice acting honestly.

And also, since the cat is already out of the bag, yes, silly me did app at somarium. Still waiting on a response to my app, but hopefully I get approved. It actually was a bit tricky to write an app for a character whose background is pretty much unknown except for a few facts, but I hope I did okay with that. And yes, I did end up apping Rune Walsh from Phantasy Star IV, but Yuri Hyuga from Shadow Hearts was also being considered, I just was too rusty on the canon to write a good app really, and well from what I remember, Shadow Hearts and Shadow Hearts: Covenant don't have a game script, Phantasy Star IV did.

Still craving a replay of PSIV, may just have to go dig out the Genesis from the box of really old game consoles. Of course, knowing me, I'll stop again at the Air Castle, because I hate that place with a passion (actually, more like I find the bosses to be pains in my butt).
