gothrockrulz: (genesis rhapsodos)
I've had a love-hate relationship with anime for a while now. Growing up, I scorned anything and everything but Pokemon. My brothers and I liked it because our cousins (super cool cousins) liked it, because their friends liked it, because their friends liked it . . . you get the drill. Ash was my first crush ever. (And now the hero of my WIP is named Ash. My Mom says that's funny--I say it's a coincidence I did not intend to happen.)

1. Comment on this post with I VOLUNTEER!
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your IJ/LJ/DW.

[livejournal.com profile] rhoda_rants gave me the letter G, so here we go!

First off, HOW IN THE WORLD AM I SUPPOSED TO PICK JUST FIVE CHARACTERS?! Arg. This is going to be tough.

1. GANDALF.

Photobucket

Also known as Mithrandir or Olorin. (I love saying Mithrandir aloud.) On the one hand, he's sensible and straightforward; on the other, he's elusive and mysterious. Oh, and also extremely powerful. Not every wizard can battle with a Balrog of Morgoth and live to remember it--much less come back as an ever more powerful Maia than before. Not everybody could refuse to take The One Ring when it was offered, either. I think what I like best about Gandalf is, for all his high knowledge and all his renown among Elves, Men, and wizards, he can still be completely at ease discussing the true meaning behind good morning with a Hobbit.

I am trying to devote my energy and my muse to my WIP, like a good little writer. Especially since for the last month, my discipline and inspiration has pretty much nose-dived.

But no matter how much I try to focus on the task at hand, I keep getting ideas for a Crisis Core fanfic about Sephiroth, Genesis, and Angeal. A fanfic that I've been putting off for weeks. Maybe months.

Stop it, boys, I have to work on my novel. Arg.

Okay, back to writing about killing vampires and other mythical beings . . .

I love malls and I hate malls at the same time. I hadn't been to one in forever, and when I finally went to one with a friend this afternoon, I ended up spending my tips (from hosting kiddie parties at a bowling alley) almost as soon as I got them.

I wrote this spoof earlier this year, just for my own amusement. Later, I played with the idea of sharing it with other fans, but ended up shrinking from it, thinking my incomplete understanding of the FF games might trigger well-deserved nerd rage from readers who actually DO know about everything going on. ;)

But, after reading the Crisis Core commentary by [livejournal.com profile] rhoda_rants and seeing how gracious other fans were toward us poor befuddled newbies, I decided to try my luck. Enjoy!

CUE: OBLIGATORY EPIC THEME MUSIC and PANORAMIC SHOTS of the MIDGAR AREA.

MARLENE: (V.O.) Hi. I'm adorable. Here's some pretty squiggly lines and an intro that will still leave non-gamers completely in the dark unless they study a Final Fantasy wiki for weeks on end.

[livejournal.com profile] rhoda_rants asked me how I achieved the background of this icon featuring Genesis Rhapsodos, so I thought I'd make a tutorial on it! Just be forewarned: it's very long and detailed, probably a little too overwhelming for beginners, though I've included a lot of extra explanation with beginners in mind. For those of you in a hurry, the essentials are in bold, so you can skip the rest. :)

On to the tutorial . . .  )
