chibi_trillian: (beep...beep...beep)
As I've been squeaking about on Twitter, I got a new computer Friday. As much as I loved my old laptop, it had gotten to the point where it was having a hard time handling the interwebs due to all the goddamn Flash. The new one's a desktop, and it's pretty sweet (going from a Celeron processor and 512K of memory to a triple-core processor with 4GB of memory was roughly equivalent to going from a paper airplane to an F-14). Transferring files from Mokona (my laptop) to Enkidu (my desktop) was a pain, though, mostly because Enkidu decided that Mokona didn't exist about halfway through the transfer. I blame Vista--it probably realized I was doing something useful and network-related that it could conceivably use to "encourage" me to buy Vista Pro. But two days and a 4GB thumb drive later, I finally have all my music, all my pictures, all my manga, all my doujinshi, and all my fanfic and just managed to beat Firefox into transferring my bookmarks and preferences. :D

I am, however, missing all my OP manga past Ch. 520, though, because OPHQ seems to have let their domain registration lapse and I usually get my OP scans from them. Hook a sister up with some downloads? I know I can read them online at onemanga.com, but I do like actually having the files.

Also, just finished watching Gurren Lagaan. I must admit I wibbled during Episode 26 and had to bite my lip to keep from crying.
chibi_trillian: (Mr. 2 Bon Clay)
Title: Fouetté
Series: One Piece
One Piece: Not mine.
Rating: PG-13.
Word Count: 1,195.
Summary: [livejournal.com profile] scribe_protra bought 1000 words of my writings for the Live Long 'n' Marry charity auction. She requested Crocodile/Bon Clay with a prompt of "sneakiness." There is sneakery and lechery afoot, but largely there is topping from the bottom, in a weird, backhanded way.
Notes: Slightly late, but I hope the extra words make up for it. My beta has been et alive by NaNoWriMo, so if you spot typos, please for to be pointing them out.

In which Bon Clay wins mostly by refusing to play the game. )
chibi_trillian: (Great God Ener is my homeboy)
I remain alive. Barely. I went to go see Kamelot playing with Edguy last night, and the show was way the hell down in Virginia. Then it started late, which was cool because I got there late (thank you Woodrow Wilson Bridge), but that also meant it ended late. Like at 1:30 in the morning. I got home at 3am, showered, hit bed at 4am, got up to go to work at 7am. SLEEP FAIL.

Slightly belated One Piece WIN. Spoilers through Ch. 517. )

OH MAN. I turn TWENTY-FIVE in two weeks. That's a quarter of a century. That's me leaving the 18-24 age demographic. That's...my car insurance rates going down. Well, maybe it's not all bad.
chibi_trillian: (Luffy's so smart)
Got caught up on One Piece through Chapter 517. I'm torn between "JESUS GOD NOOOOOOO" and "Dude, this is actually kind of cool."

Life crap.

Johari window personality thingee: Sadly, there is not an option to pick insane.

ETA: LAWL, NEVAR MIND. Here's the bitchy version. Too bad there's no "select all" option, eh?

VP Debate: Watched in on CNN.com with Tiff. I kind of wanted Joe Biden to use his Foreign Policy Eye Beams to vaporize Palin after she started talking to him like he was eight years old and had just put a baseball through her window. Other than that, I did most of my yelling and flailing IRL, so I'll save you guys from that.

Music: As people following me on Twitter know, my beloved Zen mp3 player, Mihawk, went missing last week. I've got no idea exactly when, where, or how, but he vanished from my purse sometime between Tuesday afternoon and Friday afternoon. ;_; I gave up on finding him and bought a new mp3 player Wednesday night. In accordance with my irrational hatred of iPods (or maybe not so irrational, as [livejournal.com profile] jacks_shadow recently became the third person I know who's had their iPod do a catastrophic dump and delete everything for no goddamn reason), I elected to pick up a Zune. I would have liked to stick with Creative, but it's impossible to find accessories or support for Zens nowadays. I am now the proud owner of a blue 8GB Zune named Getter 2.

Fandom: [livejournal.com profile] proletariat_x has been exposing me to an assortment of giant robot shows, as giant robots are relevant to both of our interests. In finally watching something non-pirate-related for the first time in years, I've discovered that One Piece in general and Luffy in particular have conditioned me to prefer shows with violent, intellectually-impaired leads. "So we just have to beat them up, right?" = solution to all life's problems, thank you Luffy.
chibi_trillian: (Sogeking!)
I'm officially on vacation THANK GOD. I've had a rough few days at work and the thought of not having to be back there for seven days is wonderful. My headache is FINALLY gone and I woke up without feeling like I was going to puke for the first time in a week. O_o;

I fly out on Thursday night for four days of PURE AWESOME at Dragon*Con. I will NOT be taking my laptop with me. If you need to get a hold of me, I am eternally AIMable thanks to my phone. If you just want to know what I'm up to, follow my Twitter. :B

In doll news, I got to see a Soom Sard in person last night. HOLY HELL. Big stompy hooves and a two-foot wingspan. He's about the same size, height-wise, as my Hound Lassa.

In OP news, ZOROOOOOO. ;_; Gah. I hope OPHQ comes out with 512 before I leave because the suspense is mindboggling. I don't want to speculate about Rayleigh or Sentoumaru or Borsalino or anything until I read it. I will say that I'm disappointed that the Light Logia fruit is actually useful and controllable, since I totally wanted to feed it to Mary Sues and have them end up a few million miles out in space the first time they took full Logia form.

509!

"A beam is a shining ray of light and represents the dreams of men in weapon form!"

Truer words were never spoken. Thank you, Franky.

ALSO: Dinosaur zoan, pimpin' ex-Marines, and Apoo giving a new meaning to "Doing it with a DON!" I love you, One Piece. Never change.

Off to con.
chibi_trillian: (Zoro isn't a team player)
Accomplishments for the week:
~Raise get.
~Haircut get.
~Survived first week of my boss' vacation.
~Finally got my newest BJD hair and a shirt, yeay.
~Watched Six-String Samurai, was suitably weirded out.
~Read OP Ch. 507, was suitably delighted. (Rayleigh: "Hi, I'm Exposition Man. Would you like some exposition?")
~Fell in love with a new band (Code 64: Come for the Metroid samples, stay for the trippy sci-fi lyrics and retro-synth sound).
~Bought pass and plane tickets for Dragon-Con, thanks to the immense kindness of [livejournal.com profile] proletariat_x and [livejournal.com profile] mettathron.
~Gave up on getting comp admission to Otakon, admitted that I'll have to buy a Saturday door pass.
~Discovered that, through the magic of teamwork and excessive buffing, it's possible for my Wednesday gaming group to boost our strongest fighter up to a +42 attack bonus.
~Discovered that, through the magic of bullshittery, it's possible for my Sunday gaming group to successfully outwit a blood demon by dressing one of our party up as the Pope.

HALP.

I'd been saving up the most recent chapters of OP for a rainy day when I really needed something to cheer me up. Said rainy day was Friday, and it got rainier when I discovered my download of Chapter 499 was corrupted! OP HQ's 499 download is empty and I do not feel like weedwhacking my way through MangaHelpers to try and find a download link that works, so can somebody hook me up with some sweet 499 love?

Natterings on 497 and 498 (yes, I am that far behind. SHUT UP, I'D BEEN HAVING A GOOD COUPLE OF MONTHS). )
chibi_trillian: (Great Captain Usopp)
HOLY HELL.

I haven't done a four-hour autograph line camping trip at Otakon since Yasuhiro Nightow in 2003, but for Kappei Yamaguchi I will show up the goddamn night before with a sleeping bag and my Usopp plushie.

In infinitely less exciting news, Arthur, Justin, and I did apply to do our fanfic panel at Otakon yet again. Here's hoping we get approved--the only thing better than Kappei Yamaguchi is Kappei Yamaguchi for free.
chibi_trillian: (ohhh Kaja...)
[livejournal.com profile] mettathron has been sucking me into one of her fandoms as of late, namely JLA. I'm usually a Marvel (and specifically X-Men) fan, but I've had a soft spot for the Flash since I read the novelization of Kingdom Come about a million years ago. That soft spot has since evolved into full-fledged ♥--the JLA version of the Flash reminds me very vaguely of Luffy and Sanji's lovechild on about a metric ton of crack. I did do some research so I wouldn't be a completely tardtacular fangirl, and found out a very small bit about the Speed Force and the speed barrier.

Thinking about them reminds me of one of my favorite little WTF-was-Oda-smoking things in One Piece: Foxy's devil fruit powers. If Foxy's a Logia user, he's a very unusual one, as he can't take a full Logia form. Then again, as Foxy apparently locally alters the speed of light and then sends out pulses of this "slow" light to put his enemies into a time warp, assuming his Logia form (if his Logia form is made of slow light) might be combatively disadvantageous. And his attacks don't slow down the perception of time--Foxy, to his slowed-down enemies, does not appear to be travelling hyper-fast, and his enemies do realize that they have been slowed down--but they do alter the effects of forces over time on an object, as falling objects take longer to reach the ground and thrown objects slow down in flight.

All this makes me wonder what would happen if Foxy shot the Flash with his abilties. Would Wally be unaffected thanks to the bubble of the Speed Force that surrounds him when he runs and keeps other physics-type problems, like friction and air resistance, from messing with him? Would it affect him in a straightfoward manner, causing him to merely be somewhat quick as opposed to really fast? Would being shot with a bubble of slow light allow Wally to accidentally overshoot the speed barrier (i.e. the speed of light) in that area? Would the two forces asplode violently in a gigantic clusterfuck of psuedophysics? Can we just take it for granted that Foxy would miss, because Wally's awesome? Or can we also just take it for granted that Wally values his skin and will never touch that thing Batman told him not to touch and wind up in a different dimension, thus avoiding the whole fight?

I'm thinking too much about this, aren't I? And I could very well be completely off and the whole thing was explained in The Flash #6549-b, page 15. Must watch more JLA do more research when I get home... *_*

I will not write another X-Over-type fic, dammit. Wolverine winding up in OP-verse was bad enough, and I do NOT want to see Wally vs. Luffy over the last chicken wing.

Holy crap!

Chapter 491. )
chibi_trillian: (oretachi wa FAMILY!)
In retrospect, maybe watching four hours of Thai horror movies about witchcraft and then following it up with finishing Wyrd Sisters right before going to bed was not such a hot idea. Granny Weatherwax + Art of the Devil = NOES.

Also: changed my LJ layout to something with more robots. ROBOTS!

Semi-incoherent One Piece nurbling re: recent chapters. )

Yay!

chibi_trillian: (Zoro is a pimp)
Happy birthday, Zoro!

And happy two-year fanniversary, me. I posted my first One Piece fic two years ago today (sharing it with Zoro and all means I never forget it) and I'm thankful I did. I've met more wonderful people and made more friends thanks to cracky, crazy pirates than I ever expected. I love this fandom. ♥
chibi_trillian: (THAT'S HOT.)
YES, USOPP. YOU GO RESCUE YOUR MAN. *dances* Usoppppppp, why are you so awesome in this chapter? ♥
chibi_trillian: (Zoro is a pimp)
Title: Ten Incorrect Ways to Use a Sword, by Johnny and Yosaku

In which we discover why Johnny and Yosaku love bricks on sticks. )
chibi_trillian: (Default)
Because I haven't done one in like a year and I need to stop being freaking lazy and stretch my writer-muscles: Drabble request meme. Anything you want, preferably from the OP fandom since I'm rather rusty with most of my other fandoms except for Harvey Birdman and Metalocalypse but you don't need to know that. Gimme character/pairing and prompt and I will sincerely attempt to write you something.
chibi_trillian: (Look!  The back of Sanji's head!)
For [livejournal.com profile] dancingjadedrag for her (slightly belated) birthday. I tried to get the porn mojo going, but it refused to work. Apologies. You get future!fic instead.

Title: Beauty Lies Within
Series: One Piece.
One Piece: Not mine.
Rating: PG-13 for violence.
Summary: Zoro/Sanji, future!fic. One last fight.

You can't save me, I can't save you. )
chibi_trillian: (Zoro loves his swords)
Not dead yet, and actually doing a bit better lately. Hopefully it's a trend y/n?

Someday, I will stop using so many extended metaphors of FAIL, because I'm sure everyone's quite sick of them by now.

Title: Arachnophobia
Series: One Piece.
One Piece: Not mine.
Rating: PG-13.
Summary: Sanji/Zoro, Sanji/Robin. Random drabble written for [livejournal.com profile] jadeprince a few days ago on a prompt of "Sanji and Robin with jealous Zoro." Takes place considerably before Water 7 and Enies Lobby.
