What's up everyone!
You know, I just happened to look at my past journals, and I realized that it's been a YEAR since I've joined Deviant Art? Can you believe it?
Where did the time go? Well, anyway, I'm glad for my time here. I really believe that since joining, I've learned so much about about writing and editing, and I've made such awesome friends.
Speaking of friends....I also wanted to say that since my last journal..where I talked about how worried and disappointed I was in not having much readers...I've gotten so much support from kind people here on Deviant Art. You all gave me such encouragement and something to strive for. Thanks for being there, and thanks for not letting me give up. It really helped.
You guys know who you are.
As for updates, I got a cute new pic up in the gallery courtesy of
Caramel Kitteh.</A> Thanks so much love!
I've also went over ALL my writings...from Sailor Sirius to Dark Fires not once, but TWICE, and fixed up all the typos and mistakes I could find. At least, I hope I did.
I've worked on the editing and correction for about two weeks now, so hopefully my writings are much better to read and understand. Please give them another chance. If any of you find any typos and mistakes, please let me know and I'll fix it right away. I would really appreciate it.
Okay, some movie reviews: I got to see WALL-E, and that was one of the cutest Disney movies I've seen in a LOOOONG time! WALL-E is such a unique and engaging character. I immediately felt a connection to him...even though he's a robot.
I also liked the message the movie was trying to bring....that if humanity keeps going as it is, then our world is doomed A heavy message for Disney, yes, but I'm glad they brought it in a way that everyone...including children, will understand.
I also got to see Batman: The Dark Knight. Wow, the word "amazing" doesn't even begin to describe how good it was!
All the characters did an amazing job bring their characters to life, including the late Heath Ledger. This movie brought the whole Batman franchise to a whole new level. It wasn't so much an action adventure as it was a psychological ride. The movie certain brings to light the age-old question...what really defines good and evil, and are they so easily defined? What makes a person truly evil, and truly good? Where does a person stop being good, and start being evil? Is the line between good and evil as thick as everyone thinks? Who knows, but this movie certain brings it up. Definitely go see it.
I know I said last time I'd see The Happening, but frankly...I didn't have the time, thanks to my job and my sister STILL hogging the damn computer!!
Plus...it didn't really do well, so I'll wait until it comes out on DVD.
As some of you may also know, the manga of Inuyasha has also come to an end. While I did like the anime and Inuyasha himself...sort of...I just couldn't get myself to like and accept Kagome. I'm sorry Kagome fans, I FORCED myself to try and like her as I watched the anime...I kept telling myself she's actually the reincarnation of Kikyo, so it kind of makes sense that she and Inuyasha end up together, because she was essentially his first love, but...I just couldn't connect with her. She was just too....annoying, whiney, (which didn't change much throughout the anime or manga)and a bit over-obscessed with him. I cringed whenever she yelled out "INUYASHA!" in the anime...and she did that about every five FREAKING seconds!
It's not like I HATED Kagome and the manga ending...it just didn't really fit with me and seemed...forced, unrealistic.
Sorry. But I was excited that my favorite couple in the anime and manga, Sango and Miroku, ended up together.
Okies, now that's done with, it'll be exciting to see what else Rumiko will come up with. Hopefully not another clone of Inuyasha. *shudders*
Oh, and I've some up with some ideas as to why there is such low readership of my Sailor Sirius fanfictions, and hopefully I've come up with some solutions;
First, the Sailor Sirius fanfictions takes place in the Sailor Stars Season, and not alot of American and English-speaking Sailor Moon fans are familiar with the final season, nor know who the villians and the Sailor Starlights are. So to help out, I found a site that goes into great details on the Stars Season. Check it out here:[link]
I'm sure it'll be very informative to you.
Another reason would be that I've used the original Japanese names of the characters, and you guys might not be familiar with that either. So I made up a list of the names of the most known Sailor Moon characters:
Nishimura Reika=Rita, Motoki's girlfriend
So, hopefully that'll help too.
Well, that's about it with me. Thanks again for dropping by guys. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
