I've always been interested in interesting China pairs... but only then did I go search on Tumblr and discovered the awesomeness of ROME/CHINA.

Heard that? Rome/China. Probably my favorite obsession since the discovery of USUK and TurGre. I mean, I like RoChu as well, it is a great pair given their history and... interesting times, but Rome/China is like an exotic fruit I have yet to taste, haha. I mean, although they never did directly meet with each other, they were like the East and West of the world- I can just imagine Rome being the Sun and China being the moon. Ahahaha.

They can have an urequited love for each other! Maybe even be China's first true love and Rome's true love out... of his many... loves. But, of course, all this was ruined when SPQR collapsed, leaving only the two Italies. Maybe, maybe China closed off his heart after that and watched the Italies from far away and gave them his goods (silk, spices, etc) when they wanted it.

Oh, God. You see this picture?

Maybe Rome was a child then when he first met China and then years later he met China again as a young man (a crush from his adolescent turned into full-out love for her him)


don't get me wrong i think china still loves russia but rome was his first love and he never truly got over it. if rome came back china's heart would probably be torn in half. because rome never finished the love affair with china- he simply just... disappeared.

Lol, made a bet with my friend; if I read 5000 pages in this week, he'll have to man up and kiss his girlfriend on the lips instead of on the cheek lolz. IT'S FINALLY THE TIME FOR DEAR! TIME TO GO TO THE LIBRARY AND READ MY ASS OFF. <3

Okay, so on Zerochan I found a really beautiful artwork that's actually a fanart of Cantarella. It's so beautiful, it's even made into one of the front page of Zerochan. And someone down there mentioned that it kind of looks like CC and Lelouch. But I don't like that pairing much, so I skimmed around and found that someone had photoshopped it to make it look black and white and now Miku/CC looks like Luluko/Leloucia now. O_O I'm thinking of drawing it. :D But I already have one project I'm thinking of starting on, so...

Aside from that, the Code Geass: Knight mangas I ordered came today, in English! I have currently 1, 2, 3 out of 1, 2, 3, 5. I'm planning on getting Volume 4, but that needs to be done next week. xD The doujins I ordered also came. xD I'm happy- now all I want is a trench coat that looks beautiful. ;u; But it kinda cost money. Like, $35+shipping.

But. Life shouldn't be about wants, eh?

PS the GA I attended also notified me that the package arrived. Hopefully she'll ship out the book soon. :3

PSS Also read that Alaska is losing it's snow, so much that the Iditarod must be postponed. O_O God, global warming... please, please, don't let us humans ruin this earth. Send someone worthy! D:
Gack, posting at 11:30 at night, but whatever. :3 Gosh, still can't believe I'm getting a 230 page CG anthology and the England + Prussia strap, along with a France pillow all under 80 bucks! Especially since that Circle is actually quite popular in that fandom... it's already selling fast after its Comiket release on 12/29. o_o It's like on par with Hakoniwa from Hetalia. The artwork is so beautifullll, like Hakoniwa's too. :3

Prussia + England straps... holy cows I don't even want to know how rare those two are. >.<

Also got the custom head for free. :D Until 2014!!!

Some News~

pennilee: (hello?)
Holy cows, I just sent my payment for the Prussia + England straps along with a France Flag Pillow. :3 All for $27 shipped! Wow, I'm surprised no one lay claims to it until days after the seller posted the sale. :O However, I've noticed that the seller is a bit... unresponsive to her sales post. I'm not too worried, but I hope she can reply fast to the cash I've sent once she gets her hands on it. 

Also, sent out my payment for the group order payment for this baby ($52, and that's the total ;w;)... I definitely won't be buying any doujinshis/anthos for a while... only buying if I see something ultra-catchy. Ugh, and I've just noticed that k-books is selling it for around $5 cheaper... but the group-order host will not allow k-books order to be anything under 10,000 yen, so... I guess I can take that extra $5. :P

Another thing- I canceled my Paypal- (legasp) not that I have been using it much anyway. :p So for that box of rubber straps, I'll be using credit-card through Paypal, so it seems... :p Also, if I do get that England strap, I'll be selling my England strap then. xD (o_o I guess I'll create a blank PP account for receiving the money then... then transfer it. xD)
pennilee: (awesome!)
Happy Christmas and a happy New Years! And yes, I did sing Marukaite Chikyuu when it turned exactly 12 AM on December 25th. :3

Just pretty much finished Code Geass... didn't want to continue watching to R2, so I read the summary and am planning to get a couple manga for them probably not, but anyway xD ut either way, I've watched all of the R2 until episode 20. I know what'll happen afterwards, and I don't really like those five eps, so... even though I watched the scene in which Lelouch dies. :p Eh, I have mixed feelings about the death, it didn't really make sense to me on its concept of how the cause of his death will calm everyone else- well, theoretically speaking, that has some sense, but couldn't he have just atoned his sins by doing good? I mean, he had the power of an emperor- as long as he's not corrupted by it... he can do greater justice to this world. But then again, idk, didn't watch the last five episodes, so... but either way, I'm, in a sense, a witness- if that's his final choice, what can I do? :p


 The thing I love about them is the fact that none of the characters are seemingly all good or all evil. It's not a classical evil/good fight, but rather, humans that are more than down-to-earth and fall easily to greed or power, even Lelouch, who is actually a bit ruthless and heartless... But I guess his loyalty and love to his family kind of makes up for that flaw. However, that's what makes the characters so much the more memorable- because we are thinking, along with them, their actions and their future. :)

Either way, it's hard to judge them because they're on the battlefield, and all of their beliefs, while selfish, is for their personal happiness/their family's happiness. Not even can you judge Charles + Marianne, since yes, even though they have abandoned their children, they dreamt of a world in which there would be eternal peace. They also loved themselves more, but... if you compare them seriously to any other cast of Code Geass, are they really any worse or evil than others? If, let's say, Lelouch, was in Charles' position, would he have done the same thing? I might never know, since Lelouch does not have a stable heart and he constantly changes his beliefs. But then again, that's human nature, isn't it? :)

... Another thing about the anime that I found quite ironic is that England was actually one of the first to come up with a parliamentary system in Europe/the world, even though it was quite limited in terms... That means England must have never been conquered by the Roman Empire or threw it out since the Roman Empire had significant influence on individualism and republicanism in England. o_o And that would also mean that either the American Revolution failed or never occurred in the first place, since the Holy Britannian Empire is located in the Americas... that means there is a possibility in no Alfred. T________T

So ya. History is wayyyy different in that timeline, and a little bit illogical, but either way the anime itself is very interesting. :3 I can't bear to watch the rest, but I love the idea and the characters in geneal. (especially Luluko + Luluko/Suzaku. //shot) 

Favorite pairings- Lelouch/Suzaku, Lelouch/Schneizel, Luluko/Suzaku, Luluko/Schneizel. I am pretty much willing to pair Luluko(Leloucia) with anyone. xD Except the girls. I don't really like yuri much, but I sometimes make exceptions... :p

I have so many books to read! I finished Gone with the Wind sometime ago (what a great book!) and am jumping into Les Miserables. I've always wanted to read the book, but the 1500+ pages scared me for a while, making me think I have no time for it. :p But now, since the movie's almost being released, I thought- what a good time to dive in! So I went to the local library and checked out a copy of it. It was the Norman Denny Penguin classics one. The Signet one wqas pretty much unreadable for me, and the Modern Library by Julie Rose was too modern- heard she tried making it more appealing to modern time people by cutting out entire passages of Les Miserables and replaced it with what she thought was more readable. 

So yeah. Denny's edition sounded pretty good to me. And so I opened the book, taking note of the crinkled cover and taped binding. I took a deep breath and flipped the pages, reading the introduction and then going on to the first page of the book. \

I'm around 200+ pages in right now, and it's looking pretty good- drama's going to come, and hit me like a train. I especially love the way Valjean is contemplating on his morals right now, between staying as Madeleine or going in to take the place of Champathieu. Such an interesting character he is! 

Either way, after this story, I'm going to finish the long-on-gold book of The Storm of Swords- haven't been reading it since September when I borrowed it from the library and lost it, needing to pay $27 in fines, since there's a $10 "processing fee". I'm seriously thinking it was just to warn me of the consequences. xD 

So yup- listening to Les Mis' music (I Dreamed a Dream or Do You Hear the People Sing) and Game of Thrones' theme song is awesome. Especially in this cold weather, curled up, covered in blankets, drinking hot cocca, with rain, and with the book in my hand. :D 

I had to purchase the Storm of Swords + A Feast for Crows since I'm afraid of losing the book again. xD But I got them both used in acceptable condition for $7.5 shipped! And I love used books. :3 It is all good- those two books are going to keep me busy for a while. xD

Can't wait to see the movie! Going on premiere day, which is on Christmas, awesome, great day to appreciate life! You going? :D
pennilee: (agreed)
So... has anyone heard of the music genre darkwave neoclassic?

I'm guessing no. It's a very small genre, sort of combining folk, classic, and chamber orchestra all together. Idk, but it's something like that. Anyway, I love all of those genres I pointed out. Folk, classic, chamber orch, and darkwave neoclassical. :3 Especially Two Steps from Hell, Akiko Shikata (her voice is from heaven, I swear), and Globus. These three are my absolute favorite bands.

Globus is the band I listen to whenever it is raining outside. xD Not just for rains, but for other stuff too, like the soldier/dark side of Hetalia. Their Crusaders of the Light is heavenly. Gives me the chills whenever I listen to it. :3 Also when I feel remorse or moody I listen to them to fit my mood. :3 Playing Toontown also fits with this sometimes, especially when fighting the bosses. 

Two Steps from Hell (I only like their two albums- Invincible and Archangel; I swear, when I save up for them I'll buy Invincible.) is for getting up in the morning and doing work or rushing to get something done. They help me so much, and make my actions sound like I'm rescuing the world. :D The two I listen to the most from them is To Glory and Archangel. God, Akiko Shikata's Katayoku no Tori and Archangel fits together so much. :D I also listen to them whenever I'm playing Toontown. 

Akiko Shikata, my favorite singer... what can I say about you? Your voice is from heaven, and your music is unearthly. In a good way, of course. But anyway... I need to get your albums, but sadly, they're so rare that each of them is well above $30. ;u; Pantalea and Katayoku no Tori are my favorites from her. Those are the first two songs I've heard from her after someone on DeviantArt mentioned her in the comments. YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE. //not really, but still I listen to her the most whenever doing anything, and I can't find any new interesing songs. :3

So there it is- my three favorite singers/bands of all time. :D Sometimes I listen to a mainstream song obsessively (etc. Some Nights and We are Young by Fun, and they're actually liked by me too), but other than that, those three are my mains. :3

(:p had to stay home because of stomach flu... oh, I'm scared to see how much work is going to be for me when I return tomorrow ;u;)

Holy! I received the Canon camera just today! And after I've posted about it yesterday! Talk about fast shipping. :3 Well, now in case I'm going to sell my stuff and I need to provide photos, that cam's going to come into handy. :3 That baby looks good, and the flash drive is no problem- just gotta pull it up beforehand taking pics. :D It's so awesome! The cam is for semiprofessionals, and since I'm in the yearbook club, it's great! :D God, I love it. :3 //squee

Woot, purchased a used Canon Rebel EOS XTi SLR cam 10.1 MP w/18mm-55mm lens on eBay! It comes with case, USB cord, charger, battery, lens caps, manual, a 2GB memory card, and some other stuff. However, it's flash drive must be propped up manually or else it will come with an error message, and I must turn it off and on. Otherwise all is good- I can't wait to be receiving it! Talk about a good Christmas present! Such a bargain too! @237.50! :D //dances

Can't wait for it to come! //btw, he said he would ship it priority but there's no tracking... D: Oh well, it just needs to arrive within the time frame. :)
