Just got back from the cinema with K and I'm still in a bit of awe over seeing the new "Hobbit" film. Having noted that...

SPOILERS/OPINIONS AHEAD! )

RATING: Four Stars!
miracleshining: Kirk Lazarus 2 (Trial)
It was definitely not what I was expecting. Quite honestly, I wasn't even sure what I was expecting.

But I really did like it. I saw it in 3D and it was a bit intense to begin with but my eyes did adjust.

As usual, I had TONS of ThorKi feels but that is general with me.

But a couple moments in there made me think if they had replaced Jane with Tony Stark, the hitherto unknown yet uber sexy pairing of ThunderIron would be witnessed.

Plus, there was one very funny sequence that I want to turn into a fan art featuring those two and maybe Jarvis in the back.

Overall, a rollicking good time!
miracleshining: Bard 1 (Hand)
Yup, my Inner Fangirl literally screamed not when I saw Smaug, not when I saw Thorin covered in spider webs, not when I saw Bilbo pop out from the top of the trees.

Not even when Legolas and Thrandruil were on the screen together as father and son.

Nope, I FANGIRLED the moment that Bard was visible for those couple scenes.

To make a long story short, Bard was one of my favorite characters in both the book and the cartoon despite the fact that he's in it for such a short time.

That and the actor that plays him literally looks like Will Turner with a mullet.

That aside, I am super excited to see the next portion of The Hobbit.

Other news, LNchan and I found out we are officially not alone in the RDJude fandom of Sherlock Holmes. There are more of us out there! Huzzah!
miracleshining: Kaede 1 (Kaede)
I admit it without shame.

I am an "Aikatsu" addict.

Yes, it is meant for girls (and boys) between the ages of 8-12. Yes, it has simple themes, is brightly colored and about as sugar coated as it gets.

BUT I LOOOOOOVE IT.

Each episode is as entertaining as the last and now that they (FINALLY) introduced my favorite character, America's Super Idol Kaede Ichinose into the series, I am extremely happy.

So much that I want to cosplay as her.

Everyone says I look like her when I wear my pink contact lenses. I'm thinking its the short hair.

I'm just a bit sad no one else cares for the series in my local friends group.

That's okay though, I still love it!

And on another note, LNchan is in the midst of writing me a Jarvis/Tony-ish fic if her muses will cooperate! ::dangles chocolate and sweet cream tea in front of muses.)

That's it for today, minnasan, ja ne! =~.^=V
miracleshining: Johnny Bepp 2 (Baby)
And it's been a pretty decent one. Mum and Pop gave me a card and $50. My work gave me a couple cards and a small piece of cake.

I got lots of well wishes from everyone and that meant a lot to me.

What would have made this day better?

If I hadn't been up the whole previous night with the stomach flu.

Needless to say my traditional birthday dinner has been put off until Thursday.

But on the bright side, in least it's not raining!

Thanks to everyone for the wishes, it means the world to me!

Fortunately it seems that the leak I had in my roof has been taken care of. I'm actually staying at my 'rents house tonight as I'm housesitting since they're still in Colorado until tomorrow afternoon.

I've gotten a nice reaction to the whole "Satan's Alley" doujinshi. I didn't realize how many peeps want the storyline expanded. I'm contemplating about using the idea of the "torn back/scars" that LNchan and I have discussed and formulating that into a secondary story idea. It would once again have limited speaking, mostly from Connell, but I would be able to finally give O'Malley more dialogue including a small speaking role like it was in the first story.

Rambling aside, I feel like I'm at a bit of a crossroads at the moment. Everyone has been showing me new anime and manga and nothing has interested me. I still watch "Aikatsu" simply because I think it's cute and that's about it. Alot of yaoi pairings have lost all interest to me and if I have one more person push "Homestuck" on me, I think I will leave Tumblr permanently. That being said, I downloaded the Tumblr Savior on my home PC which now thankfully blocks out about 90% of Homestuck related posts. =-.-= One can only stand so much about a pixelated 8-bit comic world without getting a little nauseous thinking about it.

Robert Downey Jr., Kirk Lazarus and Jude Law. Let's make this a smutty, angsty, painful, beautiful thing, ne? Now THERE'S a comic idea!
miracleshining: Aragorn/Faramir 1 (Here)
So I just read a post from TheOneRing.net, and apparently Viggo may or may not be reprising his role as Aragorn (in this case as Strider) when they do some shots in Bree shortly before he has his small adventure hunting for Gollum.

It is potentially going to be done to interlock The Hobbit series with The Lord of the Rings series which would make Aragorn in his early twenties. But most peeps wouldn't probably know that and if they slip it in that he's hunting for Gollum, that would put him at the age he is during the first LotR movie.

If this is true, I will have to stick a shirt hem in my mouth to keep from squealing at the movie.

Add that to the fact that a portion of Thor 2 is occurring in Greenwich Village and a certain Doctor Stephen Strange lives in said Village and the rumors have been flying that Mr. Mortenson is up for that role, I may die an extremely happy fangirl by the end of this year.

Randomly, haven't decided if I want to do a Sherlock/Watson story or a Tony/Jarvis story. But now I want to work on a new LotR doujinshi!
miracleshining: Aragorn Alone 1 (Alone)
Because today was tiring and I am tired and am SO happy to not go to work until Monday afternoon. Then three days off because I took vacation to watch my 'rents house and mine while the 'rents are off seeing my cousin graduate in Colorado. (It will be the first time Pop has seen his sister in 27 years, they're both very excited.)

So because I'm working on the next RDJ story and don't quite have the oomph to ink in the two omake komas, I drew a couple of my version of Captain Hook at work today. Enjoy!

Captain Hook )
miracleshining: Kirk Lazarus 2 (Trial)
So today after a trying day of my work's computer system deciding that it was going to work when it darn well felt like it, I came home feeling restless.

This often results in me being super busy or very inspired.

Actually, both happened today.

I cut out my kimono pattern for Sei's outfit today and my wig arrived in the mail, so my cosplay is officially off and running! Woot!

And, the big news is that I finished the last page of the "Satan's Alley" doujinshi. I'm very proud of this being that the only two truly spoken lines occur on page 8 and page 9. Now to work on my Omake koma panel comic to go with it. Can't decide what I want the next story for the RDJ book to be, I'll have to think on it for a while. Oh, and I'm going to post at the bottom and extra SA doodle and a random pic I did of Captain Hook because I like it.

Enjoy!

Whispers by the Sea (Pages 8-10) )

I'm happy to say though I was more than grateful and glad to stay at my 'rents house, I am back in my own place with almost everything I need moved into my brand new master bedroom. The room used to be the family den so it's double the size of my "old" master bedroom which used to be my parents' room.

I'm so ridiculously excited to actually have room to stand in the middle of the floor and not trip over a bookshelf or misplaced binder. =^^=;;

Plus, I got two koma strips printed out on my store computer to place in between doujinshi stories. It's a joke about Robert and Tobey finding out about "Satan's Alley" fan fiction. I'll be doing those with chibi/SD styled charas of them. And yiss, looks like I'll have enough stories to put together a whole RDJ mini fanbook that I hope I can manage to figure out how to get printed on my printer. We'll see, ne?

That's all for tonight! I best be heading off to my new room and start putting books on the shelves! Woot!
miracleshining: Sherlock Watson 6 (Fangirls)
Absolutely loved watching Iron Man 3 last night. Because of some miscommunication with our theatre's website, when K and I got there, we thought there was only seats available for the 2D showing. Low and behold, they didn't publish the fact that the 3D had WAY more space available, so we got to see it in 3D with a limited amount of other peeps.

Overall, loved, loved, LOVED the film. Smartly written, fast paced, EXCELLENT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, and still holding to the initial IM charm.

Now, as LNchan stated, Haters are going to Hate. Because of these particular individuals, it has become harder and harder for me to even want to go to conventions or step foot into the comic book store. It annoys me so much in fact that I often send Nick in and then when I visit Rapid, I get it then.

I rather enjoyed the wrap-up of the movie and for those who don't know, yes Tony does get his Arc Reactor back in the later serials. However, I really enjoyed how RDJ played it out. Will he be back? Who knows but recently he was interviewed commenting that he would be thrilled if he and his fellow actors could make 17 IM movies. I know right now though he wants to get back to working with Jude Law and make a new Sherlock film, which I give the massive high five too!

And of course, let us not forget the love that is Science Boyfriends at the very, very end. Mark Ruffalo and RDJ together are a squishy, cuddly, self contained and confused adorable mess of a duo.

And I still think one of them should have been eating gummy worms.
miracleshining: Aragorn Alone 1 (Alone)
So in a nutshell I've just finished inking the fourth page of the doujinshi. Like I said, in the beginning this was a joke. But now I'm really digging the small storyline I've set up. Since we know nothing of the film because it never existed, this is a bit fun to work with because in all essence it is a blank canvas.

The fourth page is the first time there is any spoken dialect and only one word is said. After all, they are supposed to be monks sworn to silence. I tried to make that obvious in just their facial expressions in the first three pages. As I continue, there will still be limited dialogue. Makes me wish seriously this was a real film because there could be such incredible acting done in it.

Alas, we'll just have to run with this storyline for now. XD

Also, I'm planning to sell a portion of my lolita wardrobe. Some of the items I haven't worn in years and some I just don't care for any more. I'm converting to a more Otome Kei style and the huge petticoat required dresses just aren't my digs any more.

Until next time, ja ne! =~.^=V

At first I was semi-joking about making the whole "Satan's Alley" doujinshi, but then I was playing around with some panels and text styles on my work's computer and randomly came up with the first three panels of page one. Then I drew in the first three panels. Then I set up the next three pages panels, including one containing minimal spoken text without any current illustrations.

What kind of hole have I fallen into? =^^=;;

Anyhoo, here's the page that I have. It's quite a bit smaller than the original copy and I do have the ability to do computer generated shading but I'm just not feeling it at the moment. Maybe in the future, ne?

Dah Doujinshi Page! )
miracleshining: Sherlock Watson 6 (Fangirls)
And I have no shame about it.

I am in the midst of working on the first page of a doujinshi about a fictional movie. 'Cuz I mean, c'mon! When are we ever going to get something as searing and hot as the fake "Satan's Alley?" It just isn't going to happen!

So I'm going to pretend it did and use free writer and art skills and make a short doujinshi. Because I can.

HUZZAH FANDOM!
miracleshining: Jack Sparrow 1 (Breathe)
I wasn't a bit fan of the first G.I. Joe, having only seen bits and pieces but I really liked the cartoon, my fave two being Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Both were main characters in this movie. (And might I add that Storm was portrayed by one of my favorite actors, Lee Byunghun?)

That being said, it was a pretty rollicking good movie with lots of explosions, a really awesomely strong female characters and The Rock, which is always a bonus.

Random note, I am not ashamed to admit I ship Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Hell, I think I did that when I was like eight! XD

I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter! =^^= Ours was very quiet as we celebrated with my family yesterday. So today after we attended church, we went out for a light lunch. Which unfortunately did not agree with my recently overly sensitive stomach, so I went without supper tonight because I just couldn't handle the idea of trying to eat anything else. Blech. This is what happens when you don't eat fast food often and then go to KFC. =^^=;;

Other random things, apparently a private group has almost finished translating "DRAMATICAL Murder," which is a BL game that has all the Tumblr girls in a tizzy right now. Though it looks really interesting, why is it that the games that I want to play never get translated? Oh that's right, its because I like the games featuring older gents or guys with facial hair. XD

LNchan and I will randomly start piecing together an SH project using our respective characters. I'm looking forward to it, I think it will be a lot of fun and give me a chance to flex my muscles. Her and I work really well together and it makes for easy and fun writing.

That's all for tonight, hoping to have something more interesting to post. Oh, I should also add that today I met a young man named Aaron who just moved into a town about ten miles away from me and attends my church. He looks like a cross between Johnny Depp and Viggo Mortenson. He wants to take me out next Friday. =^^=;; Ja ne!

Toys R Us was having this very unique sale where if you subscribed to XBox Live Gold membership for 2 years for $14.99 a month, you could get an XBox and a Kinect for $99.00.

Thank heavens I went all the way to Rapid with my dad after work today because I got the last one that had the Kinect. I think the gal was really surprised I was so willing to go into the membership. It was based soley on the fact that I have a bank credit card that has to be used at least once a month to keep my credit rating up. Now, since once a month Xbox will charge that card, I can securely put it away and forget I have it for two years. Yatta!

Also made a reserve payment on the DISfinity game coming out in June. I admit, I only did it because I wanted to play as Captain Jack Sparrow and he is one of the first characters you get. =^^=;; My Sparrow love knows no bounds!

So in a nutshell I now am part of the XBox generation. In reality, I would have perferred a Wii, but for that price, I wasn't going to let it pass by!

Now back to my mad plot bunny involving a real!Kirk Lazarus/Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law mess that is dancing it's way all over my brain. XD
miracleshining: Kirk Lazarus 1 (Lost)
So last night I was dinking around on Tumblr (big surprise) looking for RDJ pics and stumbled across the actual Kirk Lazarus tag. So I clicked it and low and behold, tons of fantastic images of Downey with that wonderful golden hair and fantastic frightening blue eyes popped up.

And someone had made a suggestion that writing a Tony Stark/Kirk Lazarus fic would be cool since they were both of Downey's characters.

Cue PLOT BUNNY FROM HELL.

So here I'm sitting there going, "What if Kirk Lazarus was a real person and he and Robert ended up working on a film together where they played fraternal twins? Something like an erotic suspense thriller and Jude Law was cast as a doctor who they both end up getting obsessed with? But off set both Robert and Kirk are actually battling for Jude's affection/love. And the more intense their desires get, the more torn Jude becomes between his deep connection with Robert and his immediate attraction to Kirk. To make matters worse, Robert and Kirk are finding it difficult to deal with the building sexual tension between them."

And then I had to go to sleep before I started slamming down notes on my computer wordpad. This does not mean I may not write this. Hell, I'm on the verge already!

Well, after what seemed like an endless week, I'm getting ready for bed and looking forward to a 3-day weekend. Tomorrow a.m. my 'rents and I are picking up our first "Bountiful Baskets" order, which is a direct from farm to buyer produce program. For approximately $15.00, we get around $70.00 in produce for two weeks. Also bonus, I ordered the mixed bread basket. (I'm such a garden geek!)

With Mum's encouragement, I ordered an older "Angelic Pretty" dress from "Closet Child" today. I had to put a few things into Google Translate since the order form has changed since I used it last. I bought the OP (One-piece) of "Whipped Magic" in darker pink today. It was a design from 2008 that initially I didn't like but after a few years, it has really grown on me. It's been nicknamed "Toxic Cupcake" because of the use of brighter greens in some of their cupcakes on the print. I think its cute and will look adorable with my blonde and pink bob.

Also, fell completely in love with the anime "Aikatsu." It was a random link on the side of Youtube that I clicked a few days ago. Literally addicted. I normally am not fond of shoujo anime, especially ones geared at obviously tweens, but there is something really endearing about this. The female main characters are very likeable and instead of being catty when one succeeds, they're actually sincerely happy. Yes, it's about girls achieving their dreams to become Idol Singers/Actresses/Models, but it also makes a point of showing you have to do a lot of hard work to get there.

Another reason I love it? The above guy featured in my icon. His name is Johnny Bepp. And yes, he was designed after the actor Johnny Depp. He's the girls' choreographer and speaks quite often in Engrish. He's very cute, he's very funny and he has quite a few "Depp-isms" that are obvious to us hard core fans.

That's about it for today. I'm getting pretty excited to get back into lolita seriously again. I didn't realize how much I missed it. Oh, and I bought my "Sherlock" pinstripe pants last week. I found them at a second hand store for 4 bucks! What are the odds?

Ja ne for now! =~.^=V
