ZeldaQueen: When we last left off, Shannon and her centaur husband, ClanFintan, got hitched in their year-long handfast, with no witnesses and pretty much nothing to indicate that this was the uber-important event it was built up to be.

I apologize if any of that sentence caused anyone headaches.

Let's Spend A Chapter Reflecting On How A Hot Dancer Looks Like A Character We Never Met! )

ZeldaQueen: Whew! Sorry about the delay, folks! Because I'm so behind and because things are going to be slow-moving for awhile, I'm going to try to keep to a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule. For now, I think it's high time we had a little more of Shannon Sue and her Amazing Dimension-Hopping. From this point onward, we'll be in the magical Sue-land, where we get to see PC make hash of Celtic folklore and pretty much anything else she likes. Enjoy!

How Is A Dimension Shift So Boring? )

ZeldaQueen: In our last chapter, we had remarkably little happen, besides baseball and Evil!Marcie.

Ket: And Patch talking into Nora’s head. Don’t forget that.

ZeldaQueen: Of course.

ZeldaQueen: When we last left off, Nora and Vee faked a bomb threat for the noble goal of reading Patch’s student records, which we found out were nonexistent. Also, Patch is a creepy mofo, but we already knew that.

Ket: I know it’s spring, but I’m cold. So let’s deal with Asshole and Moron, so I can climb under a pile of blankets.

Why Is This Chapter A Thing? )
zelda_queen: (Spork)
ZeldaQueen: Before we begin, I want to apologize for the bizarre update schedule. I accidentally posted Chapter 9 here instead of at das_sporking and then took forever and a day to get it cleaned up. So to anyone confused by that, I'm very sorry. I'm going to knuckle down and catch up on updating over here.

Projection Room Voices: Starting Media in 3...2...1...

ZeldaQueen: So! When we last left off, Vee decided that somehow, breaking in to see Patch’s private records would be beneficial to Nora. Any takers on whether or not Nora acts sensibly over all of this?

Ket: That’s a sucker’s bet. We also got Chinese food instead of the usual booze and ice cream. *Offers Zelda fried wontons*.

ZeldaQueen: Ah, thank you kindly but I conjured a pepperoni pizza out of my hat. Mmmm...cheesy. And in a good way!

ZeldaQueen: We last left off with Zoey packing very inadequately to leave home forever and hearing her stepfather calling for her. Want to guess how this is going to turn out?

ZeldaQueen: I think you’re being optimistic. Although that comparison will be biting our asses later.

Hey, everyone! ZeldaQueen, checking in with you all. Originally this post was meant to be very different, but then it got deleted because such is life.

Long story short, I kind of fell behind on a bunch of stuff because last weekend was Tekkoshocon, Pittsburgh's own anime convention! I had a ton of fun with everyone and was planning to give a very detailed account of what all happened. Given that I was hit with a few more things to address here though, I decided to make this post an update on things in general. So! *claps hands* What's going on!

In Regards To My Current Sporkings... )

Highlights For Tekkoshocon! )

Goodbye, Puppy Girl )

To make up for that mood whiplash, I'm going to conclude this post with a story from Tekkoshocon which I swear is 100% true and in no way embellished. Because my panel had run over its allotted time and hit the point where the convention center rooms were supposed to be locked up and I still had one last fanfiction to have read, I told everyone present that if they wanted to have an unofficial reading of the final scene, we could meet at the roof of the convention center at noon the next day (this would be Sunday, the last day of the convention). The reading was the sex scene written for Sword Art Online in its original light novel format (sporked by Raxis on the comm, for anyone interested) and the turn-out was respectable. We were all having a fine time, reading away and pausing for rants like "WHY WOULD A VIRTUAL VIDEO GAME PROGRAM FOR BODILY FLUIDS TO DISAPPEAR IN BEADS OF LIGHT?" We were about halfway through and things were really getting uh...steamy, so to speak, when something happened that could not have been more perfect if it was scripted.

Two cosplayers - a boy and a girl - stopped by on the roof.

They were dressed as Kirito and Asuna, the leads of Sword Art Online and the subjects of our reading.

They were far enough away that they couldn't hear us, but we could all see them and freaked. This was the most hilarious thing we could think of, and nobody could decide what to do. Call them over? Say something? Ignore them? Read louder?

As we were deciding, my boyfriend just decided to take matters into his own hands (he does this often) and walked across the roof to them. We could see him saying something to them, which none of us could actually hear. We could all probably guess though, because a split second later, Asuna whipped around to face us and shouted, "YOU'RE READING WHAT?!?"

She then came running over, Kirito in tow, and grabbed the chapter we were reading. I asked her if she wanted to read along with us. She gave it a shot, but only managed to get out one sentence. After that, she quickly left the roof, laughing hysterically and followed by Kirito.

The rest of the reading passed by relatively uneventful. We saw two other different Kirito cosplayers, but none of them ended up interacting with us like that. The whole thing was just brilliant.

I think I'll bring that particular chapter back to read at the panel proper, assuming I'm approved for Round Three next year.

So, that's about all the news from my end. If there are any thoughts, questions, concerns, or observations related to any of this or anything I should have addressed but didn't, please drop me a comment! This is my moment for catching up, so if there's a sporking you'd like to see taking higher priority or something you'd like me to deal with or take care of, now's an excellent time to say so. I promise, unless you're insulting me directly or whatever, I will not be angry. Hell, if you're creative enough with your insults, it's possible even then that I'd be impressed. I'd rather you didn't, but still.

So, yeah. Tell me what is on your mind, hope to pick things up soon! Have a wonderful Sunday evening!

Greetings, everyone! Bit of a break from sporking right now, to bring up something a little different.

I've mentioned before how I'm involved with the Ghost Trick Musical Project. Well, fellow LJ member [livejournal.com profile] helenvondrama is as well! Besides being a massive Ace Attorney fan, she is also working to make her way as a professional actress and singer. Her latest project was an English cover of "Mune Ga Doki Doki", which fans of Detective Conan will recognize as the J-Rock song used as the opening theme!

You're probably scratching your head, wondering why I'm bringing so much attention to this one cover in particular. Well... this one's kind of special to me. You see, after some time dithering around, I've finally had a chance to finish something I've really been wanting to do - put together an English translation of one of the many J-Rock songs I'm fond of.

That's right, folks. The English cover in that video? I did the lyrics! :D

For those who know the opening of the dub of Case Closed, I didn't use any of those lyrics. I looked at a literal translation and put it together in a way that I hope is pleasing and makes sense. I myself knew I'd be no good at singing it, but fortunately the awesome Helen was happy to give it a shot. And what a job she did on it!

So yeah, please take a listen! And if you like Helen's singing, please listen to her other covers (she's done a good many fandubs of songs from Studio Ghibli films - this was her first foray into rock!), give her feedback, spread word of her YouTube channel to other folks, and all that fun stuff. :)

Anywho, that's my announcement for today! Take a listen, tell us what you think, and stick around for some more music and sporkings. Hope you enjoy!

So, the last few days haven't exactly been what I'd call busy, but they just felt cramped. I joined a gym recently and have been giving myself Tuesdays and Thursdays after work to go there. Add in that an upcoming Valentine's Day meant (A) getting a bunch of cookies and candies ready for work and (B) preparing for my date with my boyfriend and I didn't really have a lot of time to do much. I've been getting some sporking done and
trying to keep on top of the dishes (of which there seem to be too many in the sink at any given time), but I haven't had much chance to do things like keep track of the antics of my toys. And by "antics" specifically, I mean that I haven't had a chance to open up the Ocarina of Time figurines, as I had promised Figma Link I would do.

For anyone curious as to how things turned out, Link had spent the night on my mousepad and slept in most of the morning (as he does). I just sort of ran the mouse around him, thankful it was wireless, and let him be. Hey,
I'm not going to demand anyone be up and at 'em before noon on a Sunday, especially since I myself tend to be pretty lazy on weekend mornings.

When he did wake up, he just sort of quietly chilled by my laptop, practicing his sword work and such. By  mid-afternoon he told me he was ready to head back to the window sill, so I helped him get his sword and
shield in hand and his sheath strapped back on him and gave him a lift up there. He was really quiet the whole time. Like, I know Links as a whole tend to be a quiet lot, but he just had this air about him. I got the feeling. I know there are times when a person just needs to get away from their usual places and have some quiet time until they feel recharged enough to get back. But still, I'm a little worried about him.

I haven't really told about the layout of my apartment yet, but long story short, I have this three-tiered plastic rack-thing that was in the room when I moved in. The bottom level holds the old Mario Kart 64 toys, along
with a handful of other Mario and Donkey Kong-related items.

The middle level has most of my Gashpon-ish items for Legend of Zelda, as well as a hodge-podge of other little figurines.

The top level holds my alarm clock and two item sets, Ganondorf/Phantom Ganondorf on his horse and Impa and Child Zelda on their horse, both of whom are guaranteed to get smacked most mornings as I sleepily try to turn off the alarm clock. I also banished Homicidal Epona there, after her little altercation with Figma Link.

So yeah, long story short, I have a lot of little items. Most of them don't interact with Figma Link, though. I'm not sure what it is, but the smaller LOZ figurines seem to keep to themselves. They have their own little area and look after themselves and while they don't seem to dislike Figma Link, he just isn't someone they seem to  concern themselves with too much. The same with the Mario Kart folks, although I think that's a bit less awkward for Link, seeing as they aren't from the same canon.

Figma Link currently shares a shelf with my S.H.Figuarts Sailor Moon and Luna and my Princess Sapphire figurine.

He seems to get along well enough with them, but...well, I get the sense that he wants someone a little more...relatable? I guess? He doesn't talk about it, but I think that's why he's so keen on getting the OOT figurines out and about.

Anyway, I've considered keeping him on my desk more often so he can at least watch whatever I do on my laptop, but that tends to freak out the two gashapon LOZ figurines that pretty much already live there.

Those two, a Deku Scrub and an Octorok, have been camped out on my laptop for my past few days of eBay trawling, trying to convince me to buy more enemies. This means there are frequently exchanges like the one going on now.

"It'll be great!" Deku Scrub squeals. "You like having us around, right?"

"You didn't cost thirty bucks apiece," I pointed out. "This stuff's coming over from Japan, you know. And it's a bit more rare than you guys were."

Yeah, that's the sucky thing. Most LOZ stuff isn't distributed in the United States, at least not figurine-wise. Oh, there used to be a few good things, but they're discontinued, which jacks up the price like woah. Try searching for any of the Majora's Mask toys and see how reasonably they're priced, if they're even around at all. Go on, I'll wait. A lot of the stuff, however, are gashapon items and thus only available in Japan. Thus, they tend to be a bit pricier than anything that is available over here.

"What about that bunch of stuff you were looking at?" Deku Scrub pointed out. That came with a Stalfos and a Lizlafos!"

Octorok made some sound like, "Blurble", which apparently meant, "Yeah!"

"I don't think you'd want me to do that," I said. "It comes with those two *and* two Links and a Zelda. Why would you want those guys around?" (I actually wouldn't have minded them. My hang-up was the shipping on the order. Eesh...)

Deku Scrub, however, seemed nonplussed. "Eh, we don't care. Just take away the shields."

"They look molded on. Those are older Link figurines. One of them is from the NES-era. They don't have a lot of removable bits, like Figma Link does."

"Right, right." Deku Scrub suddenly bristled. "Speaking of him, he's stabbing at the other Link."


Deku Scrub and Octorok trot off merrily while I scan the room.

I didn't have to look far. Figma Link, who clearly gives Solid Snake a run for the money in the stealthiness  department, had snuck onto my desk, found the still-wrapped OOT toys, and was standing over OOT Link with the Goddess Sword in hand.

"What the hell?!?" I shouted.

He glanced at me. "You promised," he said, the slightest hint of an accusatory tone in his voice.

Before I could come up with a response, he stabbed the sword down.

ZeldaQueen: After our opening chapter of fucking nothing at all, we open with Shannon berating herself for being creeped out. So yeah, this chapter is just directly continuing from the first. I see PC Cast plays as fast and loose with chapter breaks as James Patterson does.

ZeldaQueen: So yeah, this book is split into three parts, for some reason. I have nary a clue why. Technically the book resets the chapters after each part begins (so the first chapter in the second part is Chapter 1 instead of Chapter 5), but because that's needlessly confusing, I'll just be counting the chapters as they go.
