As soon as this entry is posted, I am SO going to try and be part of this beta.

My god... Sanrio, I love you.

For all of you too cheap to get a real Spanish teacher or buy My Spanish Coach, allow me to present Spanish for Everyone!









rosejailmaiden: (sebastian statistics)
So, I've been screwing with my GBA Pokemon cartridges and went in the Rocket building on three island or whatever one it is in LG to revisit some good times... HOLY CRAP.

When you look at the computer, it mentions a research paper on the effects of magnetic waves on Pokemon evolution.  And who do we know of who did that kind of research? If I have to tell you, you don't belong on this journal, but what the heck, I get cookies whenever I mention his name, so...
SEBASTIAN!

Which, logically, means the researcher who asks if you're the boss's kid, or whatever, is Game!Sebastian. Hopefully. And I shouldn't have to point out all the Johto references in Emerald and DP (especially considering the Red Gyarados thing is the FIRST THING YOU SEE in DP, and I still can't get over the Seb fangirl squee that prompted in me.) And it gets me excited, because I keep thinking this is all pointing to a pair of GS remakes for the DS. I know, I know, this has been discussed on nearly EVERY Pokemon forum out there, and most people have said "it's not gonna happen", but come on. Unless Game Freak is evil and sadistic and only wants to make us cry, it's coming, guys, and you can take that to the bank with you. (And, best case scenario, that means the anime could go back to Johto and we'd get Domino and Sebastian and Wendy and the recruiter back, but sadly, it's doubtful we'd get the Johto WRITERS back, which could be sadness. I'm one of the few who doesn't think J&J are "ruined", but come on. It's IMPOSSIBLE to replicate writing of that quality.)  And Johto on DS=luv.


So, writer's strike. I'm really hoping it gets fixed in time for more Heroes (I was REALLY looking forward to Origins), and if the December episode really IS the Season Finale, I'm going to stop waiting till Christmas and get the first season set to get through my withdrawal. Tim Kring said he really didn't want it to come to that, but I sense once the ratings start going downhill because of all the crap reality shows, the networks and producers will come to. Otherwise, someone's going to have to start a SOH or something.
And is it a bad thing if you're hooked on Dancing With the Stars? I know, it's the last thing you'd think I'd watch, but the results show is so cool, what with the dancing and all the sweet costumes (I'd watch the main one too, if not for the fact I'm watching Chuck and Heroes those two hours. WATCH CHUCK, by the way. It keeps getting better and more adorable. And I can't say it enough... Sarah and Chuck= BRHQ Nekou and Mary in SO MANY ways.)

By the way, I was watching Heroes last night and thinking again about how Elle and Domino could be twin sisters if not for the blatant disconnect between worlds (and the fact that 4 Months Ago reveals her as being 25), and my mind went to the next logical tangent: Sebastian working with The Company. Considering how The Company treats powered individuals, it wouldn't be that hard to see them as a branch of Team Rocket. That, of course, would require treating the Pokemon world as a part of this world (which wouldn't be too hard, considering I already did for that R100 story with Linderman trying to get Giovanni involved with Primatech anyway).  So what I was thinking was doing a crossover Heroes-Pokemon fic where following Linderman's death, Gio decides what the heck, and joins TR with The Company, since within the canon I've come up with, the Pokemon world is a little like the wizarding world in Harry Potter, where everyone's keeping it very secret from our world, who they call Otherworlders. And basically, since Otherworlders are incapable of training Pokemon without total annihilation of life as we know it, control of powered individuals is the next best thing. (For the uninitiated, The Company does with powered humans what Team Rocket does with Pokemon. More or less.) And... yeah. Coolness and win. Except that I'm scared to death writing and posting it will only lead to flames and sadness, since crossover fanfiction tends to be looked down on, doesn't it? Even with a nifty backstory that explains away any inconsistencies and everything (though how the Otherworlders manage to get into the Pokemon World is still something I'm working out.)  So what do you guys think? Would you like to see if I could pull this off?

And I'm contemplating doing something for NaNoWriMo. Not a big masterpiece, but maybe just that Gio/Sebastian/Delia fanfiction I've been talking about for so long. I just don't know if I could hit the word count... or wonder if I'm squandering my writing potential with fanfic (like my creative writing teacher said once.) Hey, Tracey West gets paid to write BAD fanfiction....

Just so you all know... 

I'M NOT DEAD. 

There. Got that out of the way. 

Still haven't got Giovanni yet. Parents say I can't have him till my room's clean. Which is extortion if you ask me, but it beats NO laptop. Meh. So I've been cleaning a lot lately... and playing a LOT of Game Cube. I bought two games recently at Sears (clearance, woot!) that you ALL need to buy, those games being Viewtiful Joe and Chibi Robo.  The ironic thing is, the two titles couldn't be more different... Viewtiful Joe is, plain and simple, a game about the joys of beating the shit out of everyone and everything, in shiny, cell shaded graphics, while the whole idea of Chibi Robo is "you're a tiny robot. Now go and clean up things/fix your family's marital problems" (seriously. You can't make these things up.)  And they're both the best crack since I discovered mining in D/P.

Oddly enough, I've been on a bit of a break from Pearl.  I'm almost ready to battle the E4 (just need to level everyone up to at least 50, which is hard when Eric the Graveler has shitty Attack Stats and two HMs), and all of a sudden, I start feeling kinda guilty about abandoning my Animal Crossing town. So I've been spending the last two days in Viridian catching fish and whatnot. I've also got an Irish bunny who apparently moved in during my absence. 

And my dreams lately have all qualified for "seriously fucked up" status. Last week I had the world's weirdest Heroes-Pokemon crossover dream that still boggles my mind... long story short, Sylar wants to kill Giovanni because he needs to eat his brain to attain the power to communicate with cats (WTF #1) and Claire, Jessie, and Nekou drag me into this whole "stop Sylar" thing. Then it turns out that this whole time, Claire Bennet is acutally the identity Domino assumes when she's in Texas or New York (WTF #2), which is why she's so good despite her young age- thanks to her ability of regeneration, she can't be killed or injured. STUPID DREAMS. WHO TOLD YOU YOU COULD WRITE CRAPPY CROSSOVER FANFICTION?
And yeah. Had to get that out of my mind and into my LJ. Then there's the "ungodly union of Sebastian and Gio as my new Algebra teachers" (yes, I failed Algebra, as expected, but...) dream and the "I'm at GenCon and find a rare TR  figurine set where the hair colors are reversed but I don't have enough money to buy them because I blew it all on Pokemon plushies and Slayers DVDs" dream. Which was last night. And my books on dream interpretation have no entries on "weird fandom dreams." So I'm pretty sure I'm going insane now. Maybe.
