Decided to just answer every single question of the book meme I posted an entry back. I'll leave that up so that the questions are there for people if they want it. I've put the majority of questions under a cut because this is LONG, people. There's 50 questions. So, get a cup of tea and let's get started!

1. What is your favourite book and/or book series of all time? This is actually a really hard question to answer because so many come to mind at once. Uh. I guess if I had to pick just one, I'd go with Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. No matter how many times I read that, I always find something new to laugh at, something new to amaze me, and just always have the same level of enjoyment in reading the story.

I need to use this more often. I know, I know, I keep saying it but nothing happens, but it will! I promise! I suppose I should give you an update on what's been happening in my life now that I'm here. The short answer is... nothing much. I'm still going to the doctor's on a regular basis to deal with the severe anxiety and depression issues and I'm waiting to see the gastric doctor about the excess of acid in my stomach but other than that it's mostly just trying to do stuff at home because... yeah.

Um... I started a review blog. Mostly dolls, toys, and basically whatever I can think of but that's there.

I'm thinking of starting up The Life of Action Figures again. I miss writing out those little stories, and I have more figures to work with now, so it would be interesting to see how it would all work now. That and it was just fun to write these stories where I interacted with the action figures. I've tried doing doll based photostories and while they're fun, I just... I dunno, I miss working with the figures.

Anything else... Been getting back into anime. I've been watching Fate/Stay Night recently, and have had Fate/Zero recommended to me as well. I also - thanks to a couple of conventions - managed to get Death Note and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood DVD boxsets for a great price, so I'm looking forward to when I've got the time to sit and marathon them.

Erm... Oh! I've been rewatching Robin Hood - the bbc series. I forgot how fun it was. And, it goes without saying, I'm keeping up with Doctor Who. Last week's episode was definitely interesting.

That's all for now. I will have more later, I promise. Hopefully I will even have an action figure story for you all!

Meme Time!

So, since I've been consinged to my room lately, I thought we'd check in with the action figures. They've been kind of quiet as of late - Sylar's sulking around making plans with the Master; the Doctors are all busy trying to make something that will clean my room automatically, Draco got into a fight with Kevin again... the usual. But yeah, they've still been quiet. Of course, I tend to think this has something to do with Saba.

So, this one will be a little odder compared to a lot of my memes, cause this one is simpler. What influences you? Now, as a lot of you will know, I am a fantasy and sci fi geek, but there were a lot of influences on my life that led to my current tastes and styles so ... let's evaluate, shall we?

... I actually can't think what else to add right now. But there you go, some of what makes up my many influences. I'll probably add to this if anymore come to me.

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it! Let's see who has what!

Doing it in alphabetical order. And yes,there is a lot of dvds on this list. Why? Well, I get given some as presents, some are randomly picked up at the supermarket when doing shopping, and some are just found cheaply. Before you know it, you've got a sizeable collection. I tend to have a dvd clean out every so often.

So, erm, yeah.

It all kicked off today. I came in from university (having to walk back two bus stops because the driver BLOODY IGNORED ME AND DROVE PAST MY STOP EVEN THOUGH I PRESSED THE BUTTON) quite happy because the copy of Batgirl #40 and Blue Beetle: Boundaries showed up today (I love ebay, it gives me bargain comics) and I was looking forward to just sitting reading them when I enter to ... well, basically chaos. Sylar was, well, encaged is the only way to describe it, with some dvd cases, with Trips, Shawn. Bobbin, Guido, Mazza, ... there were a surprisingly large number of guards. A lot of voices started talking to me at once

"My Lady!"

"Sylar did..."

"There was a lot of screaming..."

"Almost got found out by your mother..."

It got to be a lot of chatting at me.It was very confusing. "ALRIGHT!" I ended up yelling. "One of you, just the ONE please tell me what happened?" There was a lot of looking amongst themselves, apparently they all thought themselves the right person to tell me and didn't want to seem arrogant by putting themselves forward. Or something like that. I was very tired at this point, it was like four in the afternoon and I'd been up since six that morning.

"A race of people who all they can do is talk, and suddenly now is when you lose your voices?" Okay ... that voice was fairly new, and yet, so familiar to me. 



... .... ....

(brb - the nine year old me is going into happy dance mode.)

(Seriously DCAU figures on a job lot on ebay ... have I mentioned how much I love that place?)

"The guy in black, Sylar I think he's called," Terry said, looking at me with a serious face. Terry, don't go all serious mode on me. It's not as fun. "He attacked Blue Beetle today." Wait. WHAT? "I showed up and stopped him, obviously, but he still..." 

"Bring him to me, now."

And so Sylar was frogmarched along to me. I had kinda found Jaime by this point (he was hiding under my cover, muttering about how he's meant to be a hero, and how Ted Kord would have fought back, poor sweetheart) and I wasn't best pleased at Sylar. "Do you even have an explanation for this? I mean, it's come out of nowhere. Just gonna blame it on the hunger?" He didn't even try to stick up for himself. "Sy, I let you guys get away with a lot here, probably more than I should, but attacking Blue? Not on." 

Annnnnd then there was a creepy sadistic grin. I had to get Trips and Shawn to get rid of him very quickly. (Those two are interesting; Jaime told me that one minute he saw them mucking around with the X-Box, and then when Sylar attacked him, they were there, pulling the guy off him and giving Sy a well deserved Smackdown. I asked if there was theme music - there was)

So, erm, yeah, there's a lot of people here crying for just. Aragorn got all King of Gondor-y and decreed that he should be the one to reside over the trail, being a King an' all. That annoyed the Doctors, who all began yelling over each other about how they should be the one to do it. Apart from Nine. He just went "bugger that" and wandered off... somewhere, I'm not quite sure /where/ but he'll turn up. Terry kinda stared at them all like they were something... okay, not going to continue that analogy but you get what I mean, and went over to talk to Jaime

(Yes, Claire was there 'comforting' him. No, I don't think it was a good idea, considering.)

"Hey man, sorry." 

"Not your fault." 

"Shoulda got there earlier. He woulda got there earlier." 

"Yeah? The Blue Beetle before me wouldn't have let it happen." 

"Living in people's shadows suck." 

And there, dear people, a friendship began.

Sylar, however, did not like this glowing display of friendship, especially not when Claire kept snuggling up to Jaime (who, seriously, I don't think is interested in her - at the moment at least - but he's too nice to shove a girl away). He got a very dark look in his eyes. And... Hey, I just realised, I've no idea where the Master is, or what he got up to while all of this was going on.

... I'm a little more than worried you guys ...


 


werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)
So the room got tidied ... eventually. There were a lot of fights about it all, and Jack died a few times due to the Master's frustration at being made to dust things. He doesn't like being made to do domestic style chores. Scarily enough, I sorta agree with him on that. S'why I made them do it instead.

"Evil taskmaster, I'm impressed." Yes, once he realised how evil I was being, the Master suddenly decided I was worthy of his time, and he's going to listen to me more now. I don't know whether to be pleased with this turn of events, or annoyed with it.

Speaking of annoyed ... apparently Draco and Gizzers are not getting along. Gizzers keeps threatening Draco with running him through, and Draco keeps turning Gizzers into a mouse.

"The boy is a menace," Gizzers snarled at me. I'd sent Draco over to help Sarah Jane out with whatever it is she needed help with. (The woman's a genius, she always finds things to busy people with). "He refuses to listen to any advice I attempt to give, stating that I am a 'muggle' and only fit to be ground into the dirt," there's a snarling looking on Gizzer's face. He's getting all hoity toity again.

"Giz, you're the only one who's willing to watch over him," I remind him.

"Not so, I will watch the child." Bwah ... Oh yeah ... Arwen. Forgot I had LotR actions figures for a bit there. "Indeed," she sniffs slightly. "I will watch the boy. He is a child of magic, and only elf magic shall help him." ... When did Arwen get so prentenious? Oh wait ... it could be to do with the look Gizzers is giving her...

"We will watch the boy," and there's Aragorn, right on time. Possessive man, but at the same time not really. It's hard to explain. "Do you consent?" he asks me.

"Not up to me, up to the kid," I say, calling Draco over. The sitaution is explained to him, and he looks like he's giving it serious thought. Getting 'watched' by the King of Gondor, and his Queen, who also happens to be the equivalent of an Eleven Princess? 

"I suppose it wouldn't be too bad."

werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)
So, during the summer I always take the time to fully clean out my room - to gut it. However this is a big job, and I wasn't going to do it on my own

"Piss. Off" Ever the helpful one there Master.  "I do not help clean." ... I have many thoughts about forms of torture for you Master, and right now, I'm in the mood to try the one topping the list: fire. "... Still not helping."

"Ignore him. We shall help!" Ah Four, ever the loud mouthed optimist. "Just direct us, and we shall clean!" The Doctors murmur their assesent to this - though in Six and Nine's cases its definitely grudging. We get them armed with plastic bin bags, brushes, the vacum, etc, etc. Luna offered to cast a weightless spell on my wardrobe, but I think it's too big for the charm to be effective. Bless her for asking though

Giz and Bobbin have grabbed the dusters and, with all due respect to Bobbin, Giz is better at this. The Trekkers are sorting through my books, Sylar's ... pissed off somewhere, and Claire's helping Sarah Jane's little team. All in all, we've got a good team here for the tiding up process

... All right ... better get to work.

werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)
So, my other HP figure arrived today. Kind of figures he'd be late.

"I was not late," he sneered, when I mentioned this, "I arrived at precisely the right time for me to arrive at. You incorrectly assumed I choose to arrive earlier." Oy. "So, this place is ..." there's a pause as he looks round "...acceptable." 

"Bloody better be you little..." 

"Hello Draco, how are you?" Luna calls over pleasantly. Huh, guess she really will be nice to anyone. "It is nice to see you," she told him, smiling in her own dreamy way.

Oh yeah, and then she hugged him.

"How dare you touch me, you flithly little..." There was the sound of a gun cocking.

"If I were you, not only would you be better looking, but you wouldn't be finishing that sentence." Now, this was a turn up for the books I didn't really expect. I did mention, didn't I, that John's decided to adopt a sort of big brother role for Luna? No? Well, yeah, John's playing big brother to Luna. "An' I'd apologise to the little bit here." 

Draco scowled in return, muttering an apology before sulking off to one of the shelves, out of the road. Okay, so maybe I feel a bit on the sorry side for the kid. It's not easy, getting threatened with a gun.

"Giz, hey, Gizzers!" I call on Guy, who comes over quickly. He's reliable, dear Gizzers, I'll give him that.

"Yes, my Lady?" 

"Keep an eye on Malfoy. I figure you two might have stuff in common, with the whole default evil thing," he nods in return to me.

"I will watch out for the boy, my Lady," he assures me. Good on ya Gizzers. 

Now ... as long as we can keep the witch and the wizard away from Sylar and the Master, we'll be doing good.

... I've just jinxed myself, haven't I?

werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)

"...So, stalking is a bad thing?" I hear Sylar asking slowly.

"Generally considered to be, yeah," Donna replied as though she were talking to a five year old.

"What about kill their parents?" ... Donna threw me a horrified look. YeahIt's been that sort of a weekend here. Donna, on noticing Sylar stalking Claire - who is still refusing to give up the hat btw - decided that he needed lessons on how to approach people. We had quickly axed Jack's suggestion of just letting the pair get drunk - it was not the best idea in the universe, no matter what he claims.

"Oh, it so was," he grins. Shut up Jack. "You know you love me really." I am so going to let Gizzers stab you. "Tall, dark, and broody? I'd be glad to be stabbed by him." ... Why do I even let Captain of the Inneundo Squad talk? Seriously.

"I could have his tongue taken out if you wish it," Gizzers (Guy of Gisbourne: long story short; he, Robin, and Marian were on sale in the small Factory Shop [yes, thats what its called] near the doctor's when I was down during the week. It was too good a price to resist) asked me.

Yeah, thanks, but no thanks Gizzers. I'm pretty sure he'd just grow another one. "The offer is there, my Lady." Y'know, I gotta admit, him with his manners, it's nice. Sort of.

"Surely you cannot stand for his cruelty?" Oh shut up Bobbin. "It's Robin." I'l call you what I want to call you and you'll shut up and like it. "You may stand for his cruelty but I, for one, will not." 

"Robin, dear?" 

"Yes, Marian my love?" 

"Shut up." 

"Yes, Marian my love." 

Mazza, I do believe I love you.
