Super Alien Buds!

So I have been rewatching Power Rangers: R.P.M a lot recently, and honestly I don't think 'a lot' begins to explain it. I would have opened this with a Power Rangers related pic, but I don't know if I have a decent one in my flickr-stream at the moment so... Yeah, Super Alien Buds will do till I can take something relevant. What started this re-watch, I hear you ask?

I wanted to introduce a friend. Really, that's it. And I've been rewatching as they've been watching for the very first time and it's been a really fun experience. Though I have had a resurge of immense feels for the Dillon/Summer ship and flying Whale zord scene. That is all. I may even have fic, which amazes me beyond anything because wow, it's been a while.

Beyond there, there's not been much going on in life. I've spent the past week pretty much in bed because I have a sickness bug that may also have the flu tacked on to it. Fun times. Started to do the Christmas shopping and have managed to get most of the family stuff done, just the friend stuff to go. Not sure what I actually want myself... Some books would be cool.

Will hopefully check in again soon, either with an actual update or a Life in the Room type thing. We'll see.

Things are (slowly) getting back to normal around here. We're still planning to go down to London on May 7th, but we've (for the best) changed the method of transport. Going to take us a little longer now, but on the plus side we don't have to worry about baggage restrictions. And we can bring our own water on with us! 

I'm thinking I'll need to (well defintinely need to) do a bit of a collection clear out. Mum says I should try selling the dolls but, honestly? I've tried that stuff before and it never really seems to work all that well for me. People ignore me, or they don't leave feedback when I do sell to them, or they shy away because postage from the UK can be really bloody expensive. I'm wondering if trying gumtree or something might work in my favour. IDK. I'm sure I'll work something out. (My initial thought was to just hand them up to the charity shop, then I remembered I have birthdays and special occasions coming up so spare money is needed)

Erm.... can't really think of much else to say. Really enjoying Dino Charge which still remains as a surprise to me. Got some new books in - YA mostly, but eff it, YA books have some damn good stories at the moment.

...Think that's all. Hope you're all doing well!
werepuppyblack: (Default)
The answer? Nowhere, really.

Thing is, the whole depression thing has gotten really bad. There's been a lot of tears, and frustration, and way too much paranoia for my liking. So the doctor has completely changed my medication and we're seeing how that does for me. I'm also waiting on news of a hospital visit to find out what's going on with my stomach that it won't keep food in properly without me later rushing to evacuate it. And yes, that is the nicest way I could think of to word that. Sorry if it grossed anyone out, I promise it wasn't intentional.

In happier - or at least fandomy - related news.... Erm, I've been getting back into Digimon. Meaning I've actually be re-getting some old figures and stuff and even have the new Hikari G.E.M MegaHouse figure pre-ordered. I'll have the money together by the time it comes off my account - December is one of those months where you don't really know where half your money is going if you come from a big extended family,  like I do. Also got my presents all wrapped and boxed to be sent off, which is good. Shall do that tomorrow.

In doll related stuff... I don't know how to explain it. I've got a bag of EAH Royals ready to go up to the charity shop (among some other stuff) and, IDK, I just feel a little disillusioned with doll collecting at the moment. I still would really like to get River Styxx when she arrives in the UK, but otherwise... it's an eh. I seem to be looking more to figures again. I can't explain it properly.

Power Rangers Super Megaforce ... another big eh. After all that hype about the cameos, and most of them wouldn't even make a ten minute youtube video. Gokaiger did it better, guys. Clearly the older actors were willing to come back, and I bet most of them wouldn't have minded doing a proper episode to help the new team know the powers better... but what do I know? I don't work for the television networks, I'm just a fan who occasionally writes fic. I think I missed the sign ups for Alpha's Magical Fic Exchange, actually, and I'm kicking myself for that.

That's pretty much all I can think of right now. Hope to update again soon. Wishing you all a good holiday period, if I don't update before then.
werepuppyblack: (Default)
It's just that apart from the very frequent visits to the doctor to make sure my meds are working alright, there's not really all that much going on in my life at the moment.

Been keeping up with Super Megaforce and finding myself enjoying it. Sure, I think I have fonder feels for Gokaiger, actually I'm pretty sure of that, but all in all Super Megaforce could be far worse. So far, yeah, it's fun.

Looking forward to Sailor Moon's new anime starting in July, that'll be cool.

Could possibly maybe it looks like that I'll be going to LFCC this July. I'll get to meet BULK AND SKULL. (Yes, this is the biggest grin point for me)

Erm... Comic Mart this weekend maybe.

... Think that's about it, to be honest. I'll do my best to keep with at least once a week updates. I really need to get better at it.

An Update

Oct. 18th, 2013 02:00 am
werepuppyblack: (Power Rangers)
See, I'm getting a little better at my posting.

I wish I could say honestly that since I last posted, things have gotten better. On one hand, they have, and I am doing a bit better than I was. On the other, well it's after 2 in the morning, I'm sitting up with an aching stomach and I'm meant to be going out in about 7ish hours to go into town to pick up some necessary stuff.

Oh and also when I couldn't sleep last night, I did the impulse buying thing again. Wasn't even a gift for somone else. Just a selfish want. I feel like I'm being really selfish when my head makes me do the impulse buying thing. And yes, it is make because I generally don't  remember doing it until a few hours later when it's too late to cancel the order.

That being said, I don't want this to be a negative entry. For the first time, I am going to be able to enter Alpha's Magical Fic Exchange, and I'm realy excited about doing do. I know thaat one of my seasons will be RPM, and probably Dino Thunder for the funs, but I'm not sure what else. I've got a good idea for a gen fic, which could sort of be read as shipping, but I'd really love it as gen. Hm, haven't read much Mystic Force fic lately, might request that. Think my pairing fic will be Jaytonio; it's been the first ship in a long while that really got me all grinny and happy.

Sorry, that was a bit more rambly than I had intended that above paragraph to be. Just trying to think of something else positive to write... My psychologist wants me doing this more, focusing on the positive instead of the negative but it's really hard for my brain to do that because it's an evil little git, basically.

But yes, Alpha's Magical Fic Exchange, looking forward to it.
werepuppyblack: (Power Rangers)
Yeaaaah... I really do mean to post more often, I'm just getting caught up in all the real life stuff that comes with being in your last term at uni and trying to write a dissertation. Though; fun thing; one of my modules this term is Crime, Media, and Culture and it is totally allowing me to write an essay on Jack the Ripper conspiracy theories. I love it when stuff like that happens. 

Fandom wise, well, it's been quiet on most of my fandom fronts. I do a lot on my tumblr now, but then the other day new clips were released for Power Rangers MegaForce. All was Power Rangers and nothing hurt. Seriously. the new clips are making me very excited for this new series, but they also reminded me of two fics I wrote and I had the realisation very late last night/early this morning that I could probably put them both in the same verse and it'd work out ... Hm, maybe. Will put them on my AO3 anyway, so I've got them saved somewhere

What else? Erm ... not much really. Tiny update is tiny but at least it's an update. Speak to you again soon, folks

Been a while since we had one of these. Well, I'll bullet everything. Life has been oddly hetic as of late
  • London: As some may know, I got down to London at the beginning of the month. I had originally planned for this little holiday to take place during the September weekend, but it all got bumped back a week and ended up being very last minute but you know what? That made it all the more kick-ass. Loved hanging out with my dear siddymouche and hazeloakleigh and seriously, we need to plan for it to happen again for more epic Rock Band sessions
  • University: Ugh ... love my course, love what I'm learning, everything else can bugger off for all I care at the moment.
  • Power Rangers/Super Sentai: Origins ep of PRS this weekend. Will need to wait to see when I can check it out since the UK scheduling is basically just repeating the first 8 eps. ALL THE TIME. On the other hand, it looks like we're getting Luka, Ahim, and Don backstories soon in Gokaiger which I am ridiculously excited for. (I have this huge theory about how Marvelous shares Sam Vimes view on monarchy and I'd love to see what canon says about it)
  • YOUNG DRACULA: 31st October! Word of Joss Agnew himself! I cannot explain how ridiculously excited I am about this series starting back. 'Course, I do worry for international fans - like my friend C - who won't get it for a while. So far I hven't been able to find any way to help out; and if iplayer downloads lasted longers than a week I don't think there'd be a problem. Sigh. Something will luck up.
  • Going to see the THREE MUSKATEERS in the cinema tomorrow with the Dad. Will probably give a review
....That's it really.
werepuppyblack: (Power Rangers)
And I have no idea where I can watch it since most of the places I could look well ... things are happening, they're not good things but eh. And I don't know when the new eps will start over here.

Why, I hear you cry, is this such an issue?

Because it has been pretty much confirmed  ... hang on, putting this under a cut.

Characters: Tommy Oliver, mentions of Adam Park, unnamed mooks and monster
Summary: There is an evil empire taking over every planet in the universe. No one has been able to stop them so far. Their next stop is this insignficiant little planet in the middle of nowhere ... This should be easy.
Notes: This... yeah, I don't know where this came from if I'm honest. I sat down and wrote and I've done my best to spell check and look over and here it is. This one - unlike Colour Calling - actually has more of a plan to it, so it might actually get written. If I have to sum it up in a sentence - the great power ranger battle

Tommy Oliver sat bolt upright in the bed, looking around. His hand had unconsciously curled into a fist, and his heart was pounding. His ears strained, listening but... nothing. He sighed, leaning back against the pillow, his hand uncurling as his heartbeat returned to normal. It was nothing. Just what his mother would have called the noise of the house settling. He closed his eyes, trying to settle down again.
Thump. Thump.
He was bolt upright, and out of the bed this time. He hadn't been hearing things.
Thump. Thump. Crash. Bang.
Someone was in his house. Tommy listened closer. More than one someone. People were in his house and by the sounds of it, they were trying to find something. Was he being robbed? The thought froze him in his place for a moment. It was something so mundane compared to the evils that he was more used to facing.
Crash. “SILENCE. Fool! You will wake him! We find what we need and we leave.
The voice was low, and guttural, and very obviously not of this world. Okay. Probably not so mundane then. Tommy made his way down the hallway, careful not to make any noise. He needed to get down to the lab, to the computers. If this was some alien menace – and considering the threat the voice had held he would place good money on it – he needed to contact someone, anyone.
I said silence! If we wake the fool, we risk alerting all Rangers!
So they wanted to avoid the Rangers … well that was more of a reason for Tommy to try to contact someone. He held his breath, and moved quickly.
He wasn't quick enough. A silver creature – it looked like it had a bucket on his head – stepped in his way, letting out some sort of high pitched noise, calling forth a squad of them. Tommy let out an audible groan, as the silver creatures rushed forward. He hated Mook fights. He fought back though, kicking and punching and attacking where he could, pushing his way forward to get down to the lab.
He stopped, looking around. “You know, hiding in the shadows went out of style with the 90s anti-hero,” he called loudly. No reply, unless you call a vicious snarl a reply. “Yeah, good idea Tommy, insult the guy who managed to get past the shields,” he muttered to himself, backhanding another of the silver creatures – a sudden flash of memory of the Putties coming to mind as he did so. He pushed forward again, turning and kicking a couple back into the group, giving him enough time to get down into the lab. Of course, before doing so he made sure to set off a couple of gas cannisters that Adam had given him – it would disguise where the lab opening actually was. … And no, he didn't want to think where Adam got the cannisters, he was just careful that the guy flung a couple his way. He ran down into the lab, he didn't have a lot of time.
“Yeah, I've heard that one before,” Tommy muttered under his breath, before hitting a button on the console. A red light blinked on – he was being reordered. He jumped when he heard crashing coming from above him – seriously, he didn't have a lot of time.
“This is Tommy Oliver, calling all Rangers. We have a … man, I don't know what to call it but there is something serious going on here,” the floor beneath his feet began to shake, and Tommy grabbed on to the worktop surface to keep his balance. “It's an invasion or something, I don't know what but all Rangers need to be on alert. I repeat, all Ranger--”
Tommy made to hit the button to send.
Something hit the back of his head.
Then the delete button was pressed.
It always ends with the transmission never being sent.

So my 21st is in five weeks. Yes, I am keeeping count of when this is because, frankly, I don't have much else to do at the moment. Which is actually the reason I'm sitting trying to plan out a trip to London over the September weekend. Well, I say plan out, it's actually been on the cards since early this year, we've just done bugger all due to the 21st party coming up and it being tthe bigger priority atm.

Hoping this planning actually plans out because Gods know I need a damn holiday. And yes, I am well aware my uni will likely be in session then but at the moment, all I care about is getting a holiday so I don't go insane over this term. Can I afford this holiday? ... Ask in five weeks.

No, but seriously, it'd be chill to get a well  needed time away from Glasgow and down to where I can hang out with some great friends and hit up a couple of places I haven't been yet/been to in a while. I haven't actually had a holiday since I started at the uni. I don't actually know how I've managed to keep relatively sane in all of this. And yess, this insane giggling fandom mess you see is relatively sane.

If anything a holiday is likely to stop the depressing thoughts my mind keeps throwing at me.

In other news - I have the beginnings of a PR fanfic. Should I post it? Please note, I have no idea whether or not I can finish this fic, and it was based off a ... semi-cracky idea and my writing is semi-terrible but... yeah. Opinions?

Also - please check out twomusicalfangirls! It's random musical fangirling fun.

Yeah, I've got two things I wanna chat about and quite frankly I don't really feel like making the two seperate posts about them - on a random side note this blog is becoming more of an editiorial type thing for me, which is cool. Right, so let's not preamble much longer, and get straight into what I wanna chat about.

1. The American Idiot musical has been confirmed as being turned into a movie - yeah, this is fairly cool news. I will admit, I'm more excited to hear stuff about the Les Misérables musical movie at the moment, if I'm completely honest about it. It's not that I don't think an American Idiot movie will be cool - although they'll need to beef up the narrative or bill it as an opera - it's just that well. Okay, honestly? I only care about one piece of casting: St. Jimmy. Who do I want in the role? Tony Vincent. Simple as. He's got this presence about him and it fits the role perfectly, so if he gets cast I will be extraordinarily happy. If he doesn't ... well ... I'm sure it'll still be cool.

2. Kazioku Sentai Gokaiger - Right, I know I have made no secret of the fact that I don't like seeing the original sentaI because I love Power Rangers and frankly, I don't want anything to spoil that love. Well, that's still completely and utterly true, but lately I've felt like I should at least have a check at some of the sentai. So, I decided to look at the one that's currently airing as the premise alone - Space Pirates! - seemed ridiculously cool to me.

I'm currently four episodes in and... yeah, I'm still sticking with the ridiculously cool frame of mind here. I don't know if it's just because it's my 'first' sentai, but I'm finding Gokaiger to be a brilliant sentai, with a so-far well executed story. To keep it short - because I probably will write up a better review once I've seen all the currently out episodes -  Captain Marvelous has surplanted Jack Sparrow as coolest pirate ever in my mind. ... Okay, so Jack was second place to the Dread Pirate Roberts anyway, but still! For something I'm only just starting to watch?  That's pretty damn impressive. And yes, Marvelous is probably my favourite, or maybe Doc. Doc would be typical of me - I quite like the quirky funny characters - but Marvelous is odd. I hardly ever like the Red Rangers. 

As for adapting this one to PR... I'd love to see it done but I think the premise might raise too many expenses, something which I don't think Saban is going to want tbh. But like I said, I'd love to see it done and if it does happen I know I'd be watching avidly. It's just that cost wise, I don't think I can see it happening. I hope I'm wrong

3. Digimon Adventure/Digimon Adventure Zero Two Rewatch
- I'm calling this one my summer project. I'm considering rewatching - well I say rewatching, I'm thinking of using the subs for this so technically for many episodes it will be first watch - Digimon Adventure and Adventure Zero Two and writing up my thoughts on each. It's 'considering' as I'd like to hear if anyone is actually interested in reading my thoughts on it before I do so. Ideally I'd probably post them on this blog, though I can see me signing up for wordpress or something for it. Any thoughts?

And... yup, that's it. Now to try to work out what the hell to get my Mum for her birthday. Adios, amigos.
werepuppyblack: (Power Rangers)
Okay, so I just completed that quiz, and I'll post my results here before going into a description of what it means. And saying it now, while I cam going to be critical of this quiz in relation to myself - THAT DOES NOT MEAN FOR A SECOND I DO NOT FIND IT AWESOME. No, seriously, this is a brilliant quiz and I highly support people going and looking at it. It can be found here

Shade: Light
Level: Ninja (Soul)
Color: Green
Archetype: The Paladin
Traits: Dominant Negative Masculine

You are on the side of Light; you would be a Green Ranger. Your animal is the Panther (DNM).

And yes, that's as far as I'm posting because while the other stuff is interesting, it would take up a helluva lot of room before I can get into my description. But yes, I will be looking to it as I get into my description. And yes, I will be focusing on whether or not it applies to me before I actually get on to the actual colour theory stuff. So be warned of rambling.  Side note: the colour theory is part of what makes me wish I could use Fandom in my media analysis portfolio (due May 3rd, and still not really started properly yet... Yeah, I know, bad of me but I just can't get properly focuses on it).
Read more... )

But this leads me into how I'm going to round off this rambling entry. What do I think of the colour theory? Well, like I said, it's one of the many reasons I'd love to be able to use fandom related things n my media portfolio, but on the whole I do think Ellen Brand latched on to something very true when she created it, even if I'm sure there's a lot more subsections to each colour than we necessarily pay attention to, and even if I'm sure Sixth Rangers pretty much mess the average. In connection with me however, well... okay, so it was more near the mark than I'd have liked it to be.

... So when do I get my morpher then?
werepuppyblack: (Power Rangers)

Which leads me nicely into my little segeway about the happenings in Power Rangers Samurai - admitedly I am a least a week or two behind due to EVIL DEADLINES OF EVIL but I caught Forest for the Trees. I'll put this under an LJ cut for anyone who hasn't managed to catch it yet.

Hopefully I'll catch up with all the episodes soon. Tell me if there's anything I need to see!
