All right. Silvermask started talking to me today about his icons, and goshdarnit, I couldn't help but changing all ten of my own. ^^;;
We've got some NieA_7 ... some FLCL ... some Rurouni Kenshin ... some Five Star Stories ... some Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne. I wanted to use one of the pretty Gackt icons that Bara made me for my birthday, but I ran out of space. o_o
Sho, you have all the RK manga, right? Could you help me? ::big sparkly shoujo eyes:: The Kaoru image that I used is really the only one on the Internet I could find that even remotely matched the "confused, eheh, sweatdrop" that I wanted ... I kind of wanted one of her weirder super-deformed/spaz moments, if you know what I mean, but couldn't locate a single thing beyond this one. It isn't my dream icon. TT
I couldn't help but stick in the "conversational norwegian" Freakazoid icon ... I loved that show. ^^;;;
I posted this at a group blog. I'm posting it again here, because I'm feeling it over and over and over lately. I know I've been really moody recently with recent events and subsequent entries, but I've been trying to get out of the funk. I want to.
"I'm getting really frickin' sick of dealing with depressed people. I hate all the sighs and the silences, am tired of the endless nothingness that they seem to think their existence to be. I'm beginning to despise the freaking fatalism that I guess accompanies depression, and I'm tired of hearing how they can't control this or that, or that it's not up to them, or that they're just blown in the wind. I'm REALLY sick of them shooting down every damn one of my suggestions when I try to help, and I'm exasperated when they sigh again and can't come up with any on their own. I am nauseated by how they feel things will never change, how they cannot change. I hate the one word responses I get to typing out all my adventures. I hate trying to be cheery when I really want to scream and cry at them, I hate trying to be nice when all that some of them need is a good solid kick in the pants.
I WANT TO BE HAPPY.
I'm trying so damn hard to be a happier person. I really am. I feel like they're dragging me back down to where I was, and I don't want to go there again. I want to be happy, but I want to be a good friend - but I can't be a good friend if they NEVER CHANGE."
And now I'm going to proceed to talk about Rurouni Kenshin, and spoil some things, so tread with caution if you care. I got the next RK TV series DVD, which I think is the beginning of the Kyoto Arc, so I can't help but comment on it.
Ohmygosh! It makes perfect sense now! I had always wondered who the shadow assassin at the end of the RK OAVs was, the one who took Kenshin's place ... I had figured out all the rest of the people that would later come back and play a part again in Kenshin's life, but I never figured out who that was. But now I know! It's Shishio!! Right? I'm pretty darn sure. o_o
OMG. I'm now in love with Rurouni Kenshin's tv series. I was really not enjoying it too much except for every now and then at the beginning, but damn, this was one great DVD. The animation has picked up in quality and that quality has picked up in consistency, it's edgier, and wheee, Saitou-sama!!!
I'm beginning to like Kaoru more (I can accept her being with Kenshin and not Tomoe, heh), and I've decided that I share similarities with her. When Kenshin ... when he left (T_T), she pretty much did exactly what I would do. ^_^; Start crying!
Ok, so that wasn't as coherent as I had hoped, but oh well. /SPOILER TALK
I've made major decisions in RO as of late. ^_^ I've put Poppy's stuff in storage and deleted her (she was a sad thief ... she was only starting to get good at level 14/something, and then came the rollback which took her all the way down to 11/something, and I couldn't bear to go back that far), replacing her with Jonquil. Jonquil's going to be a merchant, I think. ^_^
I'm going to spend a lot of time leveling up kowaiyo. ^_^ I'm going to be a warp acolyte! I only wish I hadn't leveled up the undead defenses so much, but oh well - at least I'll have some protection against them, which is good, because I don't like the undead. o_o
Cecily's got a cat headband now, thanks to Shoten. ^^ She looks so cute! Now to get one for Estelle, somehow ...
