Importing to Dreamwidth

Due to the server move to Russia, I'm importing over to Dreamwidth. Not that my page sees much activity here since fandom took off to tumblr anyways, but hopefully, I'll catch anyone who is still here over there.

So, I'm on Tumblr

Its more fun now that I get the format. I was hunting up memes from that new YuGiOh movie and got sucked in....the phone app blows, but eh, I can use the browser.

Also, why was I not onboard USS Prideship before now? Like, i legit missed all the subtext a decade ago regatding Kaiba and Yami but mostly Kaiba because everything in DSOD was like Hachi Komatsu from NANA-level of admiration and Beyonce's baby announcement level extra but OMG i loved it.

Anyone else on there?

Also, RIP Last Incarnation of GAFF

...which is originally what I was gonna post before finding out about Wada.

Anyway, the whygodwhy.org site it became after House of Badfic (the first post official GAFF board after the original shut down) went to piss is gone. Not that anyone bothered snarking fanfic anymore and even the news section dried up ages ago, but I guess it's an idea that is past its prime. There's not much that shocks many people in fan fiction anymore, and honestly? While there's more bad fan fiction out there, there's also a whole lot more good shit, too. AO3 seems to enjoy a higher quality than most places, and at the very minimum I haven't come across shipper related character bashing in any of the fics I've read there.

No point in lamenting the past....just be glad you were there to enjoy it.
OMG

Wada Koji

Holy shit! I had no idea he died a few months ago!

For anyone not familiar with the name, he was the guy who sang most of Digimon's opening themes including "Butterfly". I was pretty excited when he was brought on to re-record the music for Digimon Tri, the ending song for Part 2 being the last single released five days before his death from cancer.

Goddamn. I feel like I lost a bit of my childhood. It sucks harder than losing Leonard Nimoy, but he had lived to a ripe old age and achieved so much.

Fuck cancer.

Here's a link to the original theme, since LJ has updated and I don't remember how to embed into the post: https://youtu.be/6qtn_hu0CXk

That New Yu Gi Oh movie thou....

I'm seriously effing excited for it, despite being out the fandom for a really long time. They've taken the Digimon Adventure Tri approach to the animation and just on the trailer alone looks frigging awesome. Plus, without giving too much away, thIs reignited the Kaiba fan girl in me and reminded me why I got into the fandom to begin with.

Also, Mokuba's character design is totes adorable.

Anyway. Suffice it to say it would have been the one movie I would've seen in theaters if I were still stationed in Japan, language barrier and insanely expensive tickets aside.

So, Tumblr...

How do I use it?

No,I don't plan to leave LJ completely, but given that announcement that is all but bribing members to return (apparently, a lot of people got fucked over and left three years ago, but I don't know all the details), I would like another fandom-friendly place where I can post somewhere other than the FB page with my real name on it.

So far, it seems one can only post to their own account, and not to communities. God, this must be what my parents feel like every time they use a computer or buy a new cell phone. :(

ETA: I hope nenya85 sees this, as she's one of the few remaining folks on my feed that still posts here to use tumblr

RIP Leonard Nimoy



Although TOS!Trek isn't the series I was introduced to first (Enterprise) or my personal favorite (Deep Space Nine), his Spock character is one of the reasons TOS and Trek became what it is today. I really wished I'd had the chance to meet him.

RIP.
