    Hey! Yeah, it was fun meeting you too. Con was pretty cool, as it usually is. I got most of the DVDs I was looking for (especially Spice and Wolf). The AMV contest was all right, not as entertaining as last years... It felt like everyone was suffering through all the drama, sentimental, action and upbeat categories just so they could watch the comedy. Made me think for the first time maybe AMV artists should go for less flash and more substance in their amv making to keep people's attention.

    Son of Oro... I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. The thought of any woman consciously consenting to breed with that... man... makes my toes curl.

    I stay away from the FC now because they don't allow dissenting opinions, even if the poster in spirit and/or principle supports SS. Nope, you've got to be completely okay with anything and everything in canon or it's the door - it's at least the feeling I get. In retrospect, the forehead poke does look better in comparison to what came after, so you're not alone in that consideration.

    Gaiden is a joke. And it's not real to me, like I've said.

    I hope the movie is decent, at least. I haven't watched a Naruto movie since the first one that was made. I was serious when I said I'm just here for Sasuke and since Sasuke is MIA in all the other movies that came after, I've no reason to watch them. At least the Inuyasha movies knew what was up and factored Sesshomaru into the plot whenever possible.

    Damn, now I want another Inuyasha movie. But with Sesshomaru. And Rin, all grown up. It could be all Thorn Birds-like and stuff and really be a heart warmer tear jerker. Make it happen, life!

    Oh, good, I'm glad you were able to see it. I was talking to my husband about meeting places, would you like to meet at the California Tortilla? If not, is there somewhere else you would prefer? Let me know in a PM.

    All right, I finally got something to show you!

    It's just one pic right now. I may or may not put up more.

    I just tried it again today and it's still not working. I uploaded one pic to deviantart this morning but it doesn't show up in search results yet. I think it takes 24 hours to post so I won't worry until it makes sense to.

    My husband is eager to wear our outfits again. I think it's just cause he likes me in that dress. XD
    I do too... I think my seamstress did an excellent job.

    I would expect after attending something as epic as SDCC you'd be done with conventions for a while so I'm not surprised you'd be reluctant to do another con again so soon, especially with all that's going on in your life. I hear you about friends not going anymore. Guess it's just something that happens when you "grow up" and life keeps horning in on "play time." Since we don't plan to have kids, nor want them, Otakon may continue to be a regular thing for us. I've been going since 2008 - save for 2011, when I didn't go because I had no one to go with. If I continue to cosplay in the future, I'm going to keep going as either Tifa and Rinoa. The outfits are simple and comfortable and I don't really need to do anything with my hair. Costumes are expensive after all.

    Rant away. I don't mind. I think I rant enough at you as it is, lol. I try to rant at my husband and he winds up interrupting me because he wants kisses. XD

    LOL, I don't have a smartphone either. I have a military grade flip phone that doesn't do very much. (I'm so old school it hurts... I seriously stopped social networking and getting with it a long time ago). I think I'll just PM you my mobile number and you can text me. If that's not ok, just delete the PM.

    Hmm, I can't say there's a place at the harbor I'm partial to, but so long as it's nearby the convention center, I might be able to get there. My tech savvy husband has a smart phone and a GPS so finding wherever you want to meet at shouldn't be an issue. I'd like to know how Peebs took Gaiden. It was just painful hearing about it from you, I'd like to hear another firsthand account!

    No, it's not because we're not friended. Those are pictures are set to be public, so anyone can see them. I deleted and then reuploaded the images after resizing them, thinking their size was the issue, and then logged out, and it still won't show them. LJ is obviously having issues. Try back later. If I can get it to work later, I'll send the link again.

    I don't have a facebook. Haven't had much of a need for it, since just about everyone who matters is a phone call or text away, and if not I can just hop in the car for a five minute drive. Yeah, not having one often kills me for new connections, but it's been less of an issue than not most of the time.

    I remember Phoenixblood, she was pretty cool when she ran the SS FC.

    I most likely won't be making it to the con on Friday. My husband is usually too whooped from work to make an extra drive out to Baltimore, so unless our roommates decide to randomly go that day, I won't be in attendance (unless the off chance the hubby finds out there's something in the evening he wants to see). Saturday is a definitely yes. If you're going to be free at 12-2:15, where would you be hanging out? Will you be wearing a staff t shirt? My husband and I will be in the outfits we wore to our wedding so we'll be easy to spot, as most FF8 Squall/Rinoa cosplays usually wear their regular in game outfits, we'll stand out wearing their formal wear (which I realize isn't cosplayed often because the white dress Rinoa's isn't mass produced and I had a hard time finding Squall's outfit). If not, I'll make sure to attend one or some of the contests, we usually do when we go on Saturday.

    I'm thinking about putting one of the wedding pics on deviantart, since I do have an account there. If I do, I'll post that link too.

    It's so great you had a good time at SDCC! SDCC is a pipe dream for me atm (not that I want to be anywhere else right now: I'm thoroughly enjoying my new home). This year's Otakon looks to be interesting. We received our badges through the mail and we're all set. I am looking forward to adding some new DVDs to my anime collection. It's a hobby of mine and lo an expensive one but I love my little growing collection. The local video outlets don't sell them the way they used to. I nearly died of shock when I saw Noragami at Best Buy (yes I bought it).

    About SS. I'm saddened by how so very little I got for my time (I'm 31 now), because that rarely happens when I personally invest in a series. I get my pay offs and I am usually satisfied with them on some level or time makes the heat grow fonder. I have made my peace with never getting what I want with SS... I'll keep half an eye for news on Naruto always, but that will only be in happenstance if it pops on ANN during my daily perusals of the site.

    1. It is... and I love that guy no matter what he does. And this is a guy who started out as a villain and usually still spends most of his days acting like an amoral a-hole until someone threatens the wife and kids and he is like 'Oh hell no you don't get to hurt them I'm gonna kill you!' XD

    2. Completely agree.

    3. He can't or he won't?

    *sighs happily* There so are so many better stories and ships. I could list so many. I look at SS in context of what to tell other writers of how not to write a romance. Basically just point at it and say "See this couple right here? Don't do this. All the opposite of this."

    I finally got the DVD of photos from our wedding photographer. I have yet to get my husband to sit down to look at it with me (I looked through about half of it myself already) but once that's done I'm going to post a few photos on my LJ. I'll let you know when I do that. My father told me I look happy in them and he's usually a wet blanket about offering positive opinions.

    I read your post in Arinna's page and even though I don't exactly relate to 100% of what you said, I really and sincerely feel you. I think Kishi did a very honest mistake going through this absent-Sasuke path. I don't know why he did it. I don't know if he did it for the same reasons he made Sasuke stay armless, or just because Jap will be Jap.

    Even though its clear Kishi based most of his manga in Japanese traditional ways, I think he should have taken into account that he also has a large amount of Western fanbase, that also made him what he today. And the truth is there is a gap between Japanese and the western cultures. He said once that becoming a father changed a some of the aspects in the manga's ending...Really Kishi? And I also remember reading that one of the VA (Sasuke's I think) thought Sasuke would always be travelling. And that didn't troubled him, even though he knew Sasuke had a wife a daughter. Well, Kishi did go this route, and from what I'm seeing, Japanese fans seem perfectly fine with this.

    I don't think Sasuke stayed away for 12 years, most probably less (and I suspect he met with Sakura and Naruto in the meantime more than once) but it still leaves a bad taste in the mouth especially when Kishi makes it sound like Sasuke didn't even find meaningful clues. I'm still waiting to find out if Sasuke comes back at the end of Boruto's movie. Because I can't find a single reason as to why he wouldn't come back then.

    At the end of the day I will never stop supporting SS. There were so many memorable and legendary moments to the ship, so many years, so many feelings, the fact that Sasuke was able to overcome his hatred and open himself to the girl that always loved him, that I won’t let a badly handled ending screw it up. And I know that even though Kishi made a bad job delivering some crucial moments, his intentions were good, still. Sasuke loves Sakura and vice-versa. Sakura understands what he has to do, and is ok with it. Same as Sarada. Love is what prevails. Many messed up non-pairing-related-things happened in the manga, and we learned to cope with them, perhaps because we were able separate fiction from reality. I think that’s also why I’ve been able to handle SS.

    After seeing CinemaSins' dissection of Magic Mike, I decided no matter how much gorgeous bare male pecs/abs/ass there is on screen, you couldn't pay me enough to see that. I did see the Honest Trailer for T2. I watch all of Screen Junkies honest trailers, they're so much fun.

    Now I did see Terminator: Genisys yesterday. As a lifelong Terminator fan, I went into the movie expecting total crap. I walked out of it feeling quite surprised by it. In fact, I'd liked it. Granted I was right in assuming it isn't even close to on par with the first two films... but at least this movie looked like the producers had watched the originals and put effort into reproducing some of the scenes from the beginning of the 1984 film shot for shot (I've seen the first film dozens of times so I have the whole thing memorized). The actors playing Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor do their best to channel the personalities of the characters from the '84 film (and I especially like how Emilia Clarke attempts to incorporate and merge the Sarah from both the '84 and '92 movies). John Connor's portrayal is whatever to me... his adult self has been played by so many different actors, I just shrug now. Everyone knows him best as Edward Furlong's ten (ahem more like 12 if you ask me) year old self. And Arnold is Arnold. That guy never disappoints me, lol. That all aside, I find this "sequel" more rewatchable than T3 or T4. To be honest, I thought this while watching it: "So this is what it looks like when a fan fiction writer gets a billion something dollars to make his dreams come true!" It's not a sequel, it's not a prequel, it's an alternate telling of the stories we already know. The time travel aspect of the series is what makes it so endlessly interesting: in theory, all of these scenarios happened, so it's a question of your preference. Kyle and Sarah get the happy ending they never got in the '84 film in this timeline... and I don't want to knock that.

    SS is definitely gone the way of the dinosaur in the way of OTPs for me. I'm like you, I always want better for them, because they're better characters than what their creator gave them. Maybe someday someone else will tell a story about them we will like, maybe not. I'm not holding my breath.

    1. She is the only one putting any effort because she's in love and alone. I'm sorry, but it's how I see it now. I am convinced Sasuke just married her to make up for the three years he was gone... which it doesn't so he's done to her the cruelest thing a man could do to a woman. Vegeta can't even top this shit.

    2. I always hated willingly absentee fathers in fiction. Why the fuck did you have kids, Sasuke, seriously! WHY ANY OF THIS.

    3. Kishimoto does more tell than show. He doesn't seem to understand that one basic tenet of storytelling and that is why his work, and his characters, suffers. He could save himself a lot of exposition by simply showing Sasuke kissing his wife. I wouldn't need a single line of dialogue to be convinced he loves her then.

    I looked at the link. Ugh. Horrible.
