It's been a while, since I moved to Plurk wholesale several months ago and only use LJ for RP and commenting on my LJ-exclusive friends' journals. This post is a heads-up that I'm going to be decluttering my flist immediately after posting this entry, and if you receive or have recently received a "starsandtildes has removed you from their Friends List" notification, it's nothing against you, we just haven't been in contact in nearly a year and didn't have a strong enough connection for us to maintain the relationship after my move. I rarely make friends-cut posts, in any case, so you're not missing anything new.

If you'd like to start following me again and have a Plurk account, please add juchecouture!

1 ★ Create a graphic (200 x 200 max size) to represent your personal "candy". It should have your username on it, but otherwise can feature whatever you want. Make it something special since it's self-representative.

2 ★ Make a post with the subject "trick or treat?". Put your "candy" somewhere in it, and be sure to repost these instructions.

3 ★ Then, go around other people's LJs and reply to them with either "trick" or "treat". If you reply with "trick", they will give you an LJ dare that you have to perform before taking their candy. If you're too wimpy for that, simply say "treat" and take their candy.

4 ★ List all your collected candies in your original "trick or treat?" post to show off your collection!

"What in the hell makes a girl think that letting the man who she first met when he came to kill her control the situation is the safest decision? I think that despite her own ability, she has a deep-seated need for protection coming from having been forced to be self-reliant. She doesn’t have to be constantly nervous and on her guard, and while she does believe in Ladd’s promise to kill her (he’s kept every other one he's made), that's a remote threat to her. And she’s more than all right with him keeping this promise. He’s been so good to her, and it’s the one thing he wants from her in return, so it’s what he deserves.

She operates on a similar principle towards the rest of the world. She doesn’t believe there’s any such thing as a free lunch (there never has been, in her life), and she has to pay back any favors she receives.

what is this headspace. what is my life.

You know, I really want to write a ship manifesto for tl;dr and discussion, but everything I really like these days is actually canon. :( Maybe I should write one for someone else's otp to practice my argument skills. Any requests~?



what the fuck was this manga and why did the artist Dengeki Bunko commissioned think it was a good idea to make Ladd Russo look like Battler Ushiromiya.

I will admit the fangirl in me had an internal Renge moment in the last ten pages of the chapter during a scene they added after "Oh, I couldn't kill you, uncle! It's not even loaded~", before Ladd's gang gets on the train to murderville.

Ladd: /preening hey Lua I look awesome in this white suit right
Lua: it doesn't suit you.
Ladd: wait what ._.
Lua: /fixing his tie and lapels why didn't you kill him?
Ladd: oh you're talking about me being merciful ahaha, I thought you were talking about the outfit
Placido: /raging
Ladd: /comes out of nowhere, shoots like three guys
Placido: oh fuck
Ladd: /aims, the trigger clicks like four times while Placido is ~shaking and crying~ ... "let's starve a little more before the feast!"
Lua: you're mean.
Ladd: u mad bby
Lua: |D

It was sick but it was too adorable to function. then again everything they do is what Neb calls "a family dinner with cannibals": ridiculously cute if you don't see the fucked up context (in their case, the gurotastic folie a deux and his reasons for jumping off the train to rescue her).

I'm not sure if I've done this meme this year?

Canon ship:
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" ship:
"You are one sick bastard" ship:
"I dabble a little" ship:
"It's like a car crash" ship:
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" ship:
"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" ship:
"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" ship:

Fandoms are anything you think I know, listed in my interests, or you've seen me keysmash about on Plurk. The only one I won't answer for is Hero Tales because I find the cast totally unshippable except for maybe Ryuko being tsundere for Rinmei and that's canon.

why do i not have a pairing icon for this yet

Aug. 27th, 2010 | 07:59 pm

I fucking love being in a fandom where I actually get all the fic I want for my pairings. I don't care that half the fic in it is for a pairing I hate, or that a lot of the fic for my pairings is prettytentious, because enough good shit gets put out and prettytentious doesn't mean bad, just means a particular style that isn't my favorite. (Actually, I do care a little in a tsundere way, but nothing's perfect and this is less not perfect than most things.)

But I especially don't care because this fusion exists. (all you need to know about Soul Eater is "some people can turn into magical weapons")

It perverts the entire point of the show it's set in while still somehow to perfectly fit into the universe, which is totally sick and I love it. I'm like in literal fandom nirvana I can't even.

i just i can't even rn

Give me a character from any fandom I know at least fairly well, and I will tell you:

B) The runner up
C) The anti-ship
D) My unpopular fannish opinion on said character
E) One person he/she never fell in love with, and why

I love having a friend who when told "oh hay I hate my life rn and wish I had this one character's, though it's objectively worse than mine", will, instead of going LOL SOULBONDER, tell me what it is that's the issue and explain with examples from canon why I wish I had that life instead.

I hope all you guys have a friend like that.

yeah so I haven't been around because my LJ entries are more appropriate for Plurk's format.

To get back into the swing of things, ask me a question!

Does anyone have a PSP, any model, they want to sell off? I really want to play Peace Walker and P3P. Comment or PM me with condition/age/model and an offer on the price.

"There comes an hour in the afternoon when the child is tired of 'pretending'; when he is weary of being a robber or a Red Indian. It is then that he torments the cat. There comes a time in the routine of an ordered civilisation when the man is tired at playing at mythology and pretending that a tree is a maiden or that the moon made love to a man. The effect of this staleness is the same everywhere; it is seen in all drug-taking and dram-drinking and every form of the tendency to increase the dose. Men seek stranger sins or more startling obscenities as stimulants to their jaded sense. They seek after mad oriental religions for the same reason. They try to stab their nerves to life, if it were with the knives of the priests of Baal. They are walking in their sleep and try to wake themselves up with nightmares."

man wtf does Hard Candy put in their lipstick, shit's delicious

also anyone have product recommendations/anecdotal evidence for dark circles, yellow eyeshadow doesn't do shit for me and neither does a layer of concealer :/ I have them even when I get enough sleep and it sucks because it means I can't use any extreme eyeshadow without looking like my nonexistent boyfriend punched me in the face twice. And I need to be able to pull that shit off, it's like being a skinny cook.

note to self: call Roseanne up and ask her what the biz is like; I feel guilty about "wasting" my intellect in hair and makeup but at the same time I'm bored no matter what I do so let's do something I like doing idk

Has anyone here not Neb or Molly read the Flashman books or seen Royal Flash?

Because I... really wanna play Harry Flashman. As like a diplomat from Kropmork or something. He'd be trying to get into Tear's and Lust's and Rangiku's pants (and maybe Yuuko's and Sodia's even) and bro-ing around with Link or Garibaldi and trying to pop Flynn's and Leo's stuffy bubbles and dragging Rou out to get laid to make him less uptight. He'd be a nice change from Isaac because even though they're both "in character" all the time, Isaac is totally sincere about everything he does and even though he's not the most reliable of narrators Flashman is probably faking it pretty much all the time. He is supposed to be a ~*~war hero~*~, but he gets all of his glory by lying a lot and running away from fights and fighting dirty when he is in them, and he's really good at disguise and spying and shit.

also he's a massive slut and it's funny.

I'm imagining his reaction to the host club

"You... really think this is what women want." /is confuse beyond all confusion, gets laid

also he would totally hit on Grell not realizing she was a transsexual and it would be amazing when he found out the truth

so because I wasn't patient enough to sit through 30 more episodes of soap operatic drama (I was at 11) I went and read the Wikipedia entries for Nana.

wtf is this baby and abusive boyfriend drama.

also Ren is as shitty as Sho from Skip-Beat but Sho is actually played as a douchebag and Ren is supposed to be a ~*~romantic shoujo hero~*~ when he's an abusive cock.

I'm done with this nonsense. Back to Skip-Beat I guess 8)

why don't I like shoujo, I'm a girl ;A;

so the best part of actively considering playing Lua Klein is that I did my thesis on 1890-1915 Chicago so I have a hell of a lot of stuff I can work with for background material.

so I'm watching this documentary about ancient Israel and it's making me want to find a retelling in a more modern literary manner of the story of Saul and David. You know, besides Kings, which got cancelled and is a corporate AU anyway.

I... no longer have friends into "Christian" literature because well. Friend group drift. But if on a long shot anyone has suggestions link me up. if you link me to Bibleslash I will cut you, if there's anything that makes me rage about "~*~edgy bullshit~*~" or "fan authors ignoring authorial intent" more than Bibleslash I can't remember.

fake edit so I don't spam flists: I've been watching the Soul Eater anime and I think it would be really fun to play Crona somewhere. I also know that Crona genderwank is even worse than Naoto genderwank (and oh boy, Naoto genderwank 8| ). So, Soul Eater fans, what would the likely outcome be if I played Crona as physically sexless (Medusa did it FOR SCIENCE) and referred to him/her with male pronouns like everyone does in the dub? To me, Crona vibes as either masculine or a genderless creature, and if Ohkubo later decides the character's female, oh well I'm playing from the anime XD

Do you have a street named after Martin Luther King in your town? If so, what part of town is it in?

a-also "The Ballad of Robert Moore and Betty Coltrane" is an incredible and intense experience with bullet headphones and right at your pain threshold. jsyk. and in case you were worried my hearing is already so damaged from childhood illnesses this isn't going to make it any worse :P
