Clear - short story

Lots more doujinshi, so it's collection update time

Let's start with a completely random question! Do you take cold/cool or warm/hot showers?
Personally, I can't handle cold/cool showers at all. My temperatures in general seem somewhat coldblooded, so to take a freezing shower does not make me feel good. Warm showers all the way.


The forgotten package was specially delivered, finally! Although the main stuff that came is a secret for now, I did get a couple new doujinshi. However, I had been saving this update for a while, so there's a bit to share. Uh, but the odd part is that there isn't one large group at any point. This is going to be rather image-heavy, I'm afraid. BRACE YOURSELVES! This might be the last larger doujinshi bunch I'll have to share for a while.

Long update is long. OTL

Time for some gaming music fun

I'm still not sure what PC game I should attempt playing next. :( Instead of testing and trying, I have been listening to various fun PC game songs and thought I'd share!

Steal!
Opening song "True Eyes" full version

Exorcism of Maria
Opening song short version
Opening video with Uriel's narration version

Lucky Dog 1
Opening song "Don't Lose Luck" short version

Princess Nightmare
PC version opening song "Tokyo Diorama" CD single
PC version opening video
PS2 version opening video

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep demo rip samples
Castle of Dreams battle song
Enchanted Dominion battle song
Spinning Wheel battle song


Of the above links, I'm rather addicted to the opening songs for Steal! and The Exorcism of Maria. I'm extremely excited about KH:BBS, but it won't be released in Japan until January 9th, so it's just a waiting game all over again. It's also a matter of finding a place to order from.

After a long and fruitless search for the Exorcism of Maria soundtrack online, I went ahead and ordered it. The sample MP3s off the official site were very encouraging, so even if I never play the game seriously, the music is top notch. The problem with loving obscure games is that it takes so much effort, and usually money, to get the stuff you really want to get in relation to said games. :( *points to Princess Nightmare as an example*

Finally catching up to some of the more recent KH:BBS news, some things are pretty awesome while other tidbits are actually giving me strange reactions. It's nice knowing that Zack from FFVII is still popular enough that he'll be showing up in the game. While I'm glad that we'll be seeing what the first six members of Organization XIII were like when they were complete, some of them just plain confuse me.

1. I can't wait to see how the story will explain the inevitable situations for the three main protagonists, especially with Terra. Terra is instant love in my book.

2. Xigbar -> Braig looks a great deal younger, no scars, no pointy ears, and no eyepatch. He vaguely reminds me of a cowboy kind of officer.

3. Xaldin -> Dilan looks basically the same, except with his hair being more controlled/pulled back and with less crazy dreadlock action.

4. Vexen -> Even looks exactly the same, just with lighter hair.

5. Lexaeus -> Aeleus (corrected now) looks exactly the same.

6. Zexion -> Ienzo. This one somehow bugs me a bit. Ienzo looks like a little boy! D: I do realize that the game takes place roughly a decade before the original KH, but I was under the impression that Nobodies stopped aging from the original form's appearance once they came into being/nonexistence. Maybe I'm wrong?

Is this the newest trailer?

A-Are those little blips from the opening? I can't wait to see! My main complaint is that they still aren't using a new vocal song. D: I'd love to hear a brand new song, not "Hikari" for the fourth time (1st in KH, 2nd in KH:CoM, 3rd in KH:reCoM, and now 4th in KH:BBS). This isn't Sora's story, although it'll inevitably lead into how the main story began. Guess we'll have to wait for KH3 before we'll hear a new song.

Edit:
So I read that what were referred to as Unbirth are now called the Unversed? Okay, now I'm officially confused about these new entities in the KH universe. I think I'll stay away from early speculation, but I've been used to calling them the Unbirth for so long, it'll take a bit longer for me to get used to the name change, assuming it's accurate. If they're supposed to be the opposite of life or some part of it, wouldn't Unbirth make sense? Unversed sounds like someone who doesn't read, hahaha. We shall see!

Been a while!

Sorry for the long silence and lack of posting here during the past couple weeks. I don't even remember everything that happened in the time that passed. :(

Even though today was not the greatest day due to helping a relative set up for a garage sale (we were under the impression we'd be moving boxes, not heavy and bulky furniture), we had a moment of random sacrilege(?). D: You see, some other family member left this relative with some furniture, and inside one of the desk drawers were some extremely random items. One of the items was a bottle of holy water from Lourdes from who knows how long ago. So this relative jokingly played around with it and made jokes, finally opening up the bottle and attempting to bless us all via splashing us on the neck. I don't know at all, but it was admittedly hilarious.

In art news, I have several updates!
Inking Tutorial!
Here's what my muse, Michi, looks like!
Say hello to Vega, one of my oldest characters.
My Persona with Vicky's!
Morpheus in all his glory~!

Even though I have to be incredibly cautious with what I look at while on the computer, I still caved in and gave Lucky Dog 1 a try. I'll have to thank floweryinfinity sometime for the recommendation! Well, considering that the main artist is generally not my favorite, her style has definitely improved! Hey, I recognize some of those voice actors! :D My favorite characters thus far are Gian, Bernardo, and Giulio (Julio?). I-I guess I'll have to add doing some LD1 fanart to my artwork list. The soundtrack is quite nice, too!

I've been considering trying out Sweet Pool, but from what I've read, there are technically no real good endings? D:

The Joker seen in Batman: Arkham Asylum is possibly my favorite rendition of the Joker. ^o^ I'm so happy to hear Mark Hamill reprise the role, as he does a superb job. I rarely have time to play console games these days, though. ;_;

KH: 358/2 Days pretty much reinforces the whole "some Organization XIII members can be huge jerks" theme. Everyone seems to react to them differently, except for Larxene who is the absolute worst member ever. Most of the CoM members barely got any screentime, but that can't be helped. :( I'm not to the point of getting completely sick of seeing all the ice cream just yet, shockingly enough. If anything, it makes me want to have some popsicles. XD;
