This precious boy, Mutsumi Asuma, is one of my favorite characters, and I wanted to fangirl a little bit about him. Dev [personal profile] fandom_fmp suggested that I call these my Fangirl Friday posts, which I kinda like. :)

Anime Mutsumi

Warning: this post contains spoilers for Watashi Ga Motete Dousunda (titled Kiss Him, Not Me in English). If you've seen the anime, you should be pretty much okay. I used a lot of images from the manga, but mostly from chapters that the anime also covered.

For the past few days I have been trying to spend at least half an hour with Photoshop every evening, but why is tablet, what,, is layers

A friend of mine on Tumblr tried to explain that learning to use a tablet is sort of like learning to ride a bicycle in that it takes a surprising amount of time to develop a specific set of muscles and sense of balance, but that is unacceptable. I want to be instantly good at this thing with no work whatsoever, is that too much to ask.

I had a strange experience recently, and it's making me feel weird.

There's a guy I recently blocked on Twitter and Tumblr for the normal reasons – he was bothering me and I wanted him to leave me alone. (I wrote about this a bit earlier.)

He sent me some emails in response, but I deleted them unread for, again, the normal reasons – he was bothering me and I didn't want to deal with him.

So then he starts leaving long comments on my fic on AO3.

I felt really attacked. They weren't mean comments, exactly, but...

...but they kind of were. There were a few things he said about my writing that could have been interpreted as positive if they had been coming from a friend but which felt extremely passive-aggressive when coming from someone whose goodwill I don't trust. Also, even if these comments had been entirely positive, it's still emotionally manipulative to try to use public compliments to demand the attention of someone who clearly doesn't want to interact with you.

Now here's the problem – there has always been anxiety at the back of my mind that I'm bothering people by leaving comments on their fic or reblogging their posts with commentary in the tags. It's one thing if I'm throwing love at a stranger, but things start to get awkward if a relationship forms and then becomes one sided. At what point does it become the more respectful and compassionate thing to do to just leave someone alone?

Anyway, I deleted the guy's comments on AO3 and sent him a very short email asking him to fuck off. Of course he sent several emails in response, which I deleted unread because I have no patience for what was undoubtedly sad puppy bullshit, but hopefully this will be the end of it.

Petty annoyance: Tesco sells store-branded swing bins in two sizes - 25L and 50L.

They only sell store-branded swing bin liners in one size - 50L.

As the date for closing on the house rapidly approaches (still on track, monday!) the realtor and the loan officer and I are all starting to use increasingly short, emoji and exclamation point filled emails back and forth.

"Hi! Please sign and return this page as soon as possible!! [happy emoji]"
"Page attached!! [excited emoji]"
"Got it, thank you!!!"

I think we're all a little delirious at this point. We might be down to nothing but emojis and strings of !!!!!!!!! by monday.

I really want this shirt (Amazon link). Only not with what is obviously a warrior tank, because my main is a brewmaster and proud of it.

How hard do we think it would be for me to bribe [personal profile] darthneko into designing me an appropriately Pandaren shirt for my birthday?

(Someday, I will get up the nerve to try tanking in a group, instead of swapping to windwalker in raids and dungeons. Because I like being able to take a hit - I really love the stagger/purify mechanic brewmasters have - and also, having a healer glued to my ass makes me feel like a GOD. A GOD I SAY. Sadly, I fear messing up mechanics and causing a group wipe.)

I need an icon of my tank looking tanky.

I'm not generally a big fan of the Jane Austen fanfic genre that's emerged since Pride and Prejudice and Zombies came out, but this...THIS I MUST OWN. Heartstone by Elle Katharine White. (Amazon link)

- I posted the second chapter of The Price of Wisdom.

- I translated another page of Hyrule Encyclopedia.

- I wrote some self-righteous Zelda meta like a nerd.

- I wrote another stupid Wind Waker shitpost. I worked really hard on this one.

- I drew a shitty illustration based on a fic that someone gifted to me about two years ago. It's so bad that I actually lost count of the number of mistakes I made, but my goal was to create something as quickly as it came into my mind, and in that I succeeded.

- I drew another shitty illustration in response to a mutual's shitpost. Honestly I don't care if she likes it, because I'm still trying to get back at her for the porn she drew in response to one of my own shitposts.

- I signed up for digital art classes with the Oatley Academy because I want my illustrations to be less shitty.

- My ultimate goal is for people to be happy when I draw something for them, like this Ganondorf saltycatfish drew for me, which literally made me weep with joy.

Final Fantasy XII, Part Four

As I play Final Fantasy XII, the outfits of the female characters have been driving me a bit crazy. What I was able to accept in 2007 isn't really flying with me anymore, and I feel a burning desire to fix the stupid designs, or at least try to imagine alternatives.

The worst offender is Fran, who is from a tribe called the Viera. The Viera are basically forest bunny versions of the Gerudo from the Zelda series (link) in that they're an isolated society of warrior women whose "otherness" is marked by brown skin, while they are made less threatening to the ostensibly straight male player through their sexualized clothing. As is the case with the Gerudo, the elements of "male-oriented exoticism" are unfortunate, because the Viera have an interesting culture. Likewise, Fran is a fascinating character, but... I don't really need to watch the black leather of her thong disappear into her bare butt as she runs through the desert, you know?

This is Fran's official design (link), and here is some concept art (link). I would be interested in keeping the character's features the same while designing a battlemage adventure outfit that's a bit more practical. I was thinking about actually commissioning someone in the Final Fantasy fandom, but no one jumps to mind. I'd love to see Kashuan do something like this, but...

A lot of Final Fantasy artists have moved on (typically to the Dragon Age fandom), and the ones that are still around really intimidate me. They didn't talk to me when I was a baby fan on DeviantArt, and they sure as hell aren't going to talk to me now that I'm a slightly less baby fan on Tumblr. So maybe this is something that I should try to do myself?
