So we're having a warm spell (typical of March--though whether it'll stay warm is anyone's guess sdfgjkhsdf) and all the snowdrops and crocuses and jacinths and stuff are poking their little green pointy selves out of the ground! Some of the more daring trees are budding, too. Green is happening! ERMAGERD! ABRUPT AND UNEXPECTED VERDANCY!

(Also evidence of how few people in this neighbourhood clean up after their canines. The local park is very much studded with--yeah.)

The ubiquitous random-ass Toronto moss that pops up in pointless places never actually died, so it's still green, but it's always thus, so it doesn't count as ABRUPT AND UNEXPECTED VERDANCY.

Ah, yes. Snow is melting, cardinals are loud, blue jays are loud, sparrows are--still fat, pigeons still look stunned, and today I witnessed, at close range, a crow divebombing into a puddle for no reason except that he could and the little punkass splashed me on the way out.

It's March Break, so the high school across the road is quiet; they're re-doing the roof on it, ans thus every so often a mixture of miscellaneous wood, gravel, paper, junk, WTF, and assorted smithereens rains down out of the junk chute and into the dumpster below. I have no idea why this is as funny as it is. I blame my lack of sleep.

...Cardinals are really loud when they sing right outside a window, by the way. Usually they're just all up in the trees and bushes by my building, but this morning one of them decided he liked the acoustics of my balcony and sang at the top of his avian lungs for an hour around six.

Then at seven there was a sparrow fight.

Then at eight I had to get up, and there was still a sparrow fight...

They stopped when I opened the balcony door and sternfaced at them.


...I am so caffeinated right now. A medium coffee does THIS to me. XD But, really, I didn't have much other choice. It was this, or being mostly dead.

So hi. :D

SO I'm poking at this afain in spite of my scattershot knowledge of Japanese. I WILL FIGURE OUT WERT DER FERK THEY ARE ALL ON ABOUT



In the meantime I'll just sit here snickering immaturely at Dyluck going 'uguu'. And at Thanatos being the most condescending trolly bastard ever. And Popoie being a little punkass.

(And yes, stupid fanonkiddie who farted out nonsense all over TvTropes, that's how the kid's name is blasted well written in multiple places. Futher, 'Purim' is not and never was short for Primrose. Her name's written プリム. Randi's is ランディ. Popoie's is ポポイ. Your weeaboo nattering about ~overly literal~ transliterations is balls; you clearly have no damn idea how katakana even works. Furthermore, your personal fanon is not canon. Wiki-type databases are bad enough without pratty swaggerkids stanking them up with bad info, weeabunkum and fanon-craps.

I have my own damn fanon but I'm not going to go to TvTropes claiming Thanatos is an actual death god with a soft spot for cats and an undying love of goddamn vanilla ice cream. MINE is but in-game he's just mauve. Jesus hell, there's a time and place for that kind of a thing, and wiki databases are neither. A wiki is not your personal fanfic repository unless it is YOUR FANFIC REPOSITORY WIKI kthx bai.)

Hey look, Zalera shenanigans!

1) Oh check it, the shamaness laughs too in this, and not necessarily at the same time Zal himself does. She has a little giggle herself (into his shoulder XD) before they both LOL. Hmm. XD This kind of lends some weight to my theory that there's something more going on there than the traditional Ivalese idea of their relationship.

2) That lvl 1 death thing that does in Balthier - check out the rood inverse on the onryou-type skull. XD

3) Aww, look at their exeunt omnes pose. XD SO MUCH DRAMA QUEENING. But on the 'ooh' side - they both react. Not at the same time either. Zalera's waaaargh happens before the shamaness's. And she hugs him when she's sniffling and he pats her hair. Zalera, how the hell do you manage to be cute, you're a deathy thing. XD But oh god the scenery chewing "LA, I DIE" - hee.

Zalera, stop somehow managing to be cute. XD

Hahaha YAY THINGS THAT SUPPORT TENEBROUS'S CRACK I am such a nerd, oh, such a nerd. But goddamn, this keeps on happening XD; Their relationship does NOT look like how the game's common lore describes it. She pretty clearly has her own will and voice and Zalera doesn't just see her as a weapon. This isn't out of character for an Ivalice Alliance game, since disinformation and obfuscation and the search for the actual truth is a pretty big part of those games' plotlines.

...Pretzeltown, I can't find the entry I made when I talked about the dang Ladies. XD

ETA: And someone in my head just said the shamaness (Korone in Tenebrous) is one of the Dark Lady's daughters or granddaughters. I wouldn't be totally surprised.

ETA 2: GODDAMN IT MATEUS IS THE SAME WAY! Seriously, if the goddess is supposed to be a @_@ thrall, WHY does she chant the spell (silently, but still - and it's ENTHUSED chanting) of one of the bigass attacks Mateus does, and why does she 'ohoho' LAUGH when the attack goes off, and why does she have an AH GODDAMN IT scream when the battle ends? There are two voices there, in the laugh and the defeated yell. Mateus-the-armour's underlays Mateus-the-goddess's.

I shouldn't be surprised that Ivalice's in-game lore is whacked out, but...STILL!

I do not understand people who will jump into a conversation about learning disabilities and announce that they don't believe in AD(H)D/Asperger's Syndrome/Dyslexia/massive brain eating chronic anxiety/et cetera/et cetera/and so forth.

Like - my dear Speciallest of Snowflakes? WTF R U DOIN? You're not trolling, you got defensive like dang when we asked you not to troll. So - was there a point to that malarkey besides trying to make yourself feel special and awesome whilst annoying the living schpadoinkle out of us all?

Look, brain-trust, until you are a physician of some sort and until you know what neurochemistry IS, sit down and shut up kthxbai. You are critically undereducated and not interested in getting educated, so you've waived your right to open your beak. It's not hard to find material about this stuff. Learn you some Google and THEN come back and beak at us, or else STFU.

Whether or not you 'believe in' non-neurotypical brain business has zero bearing on our lives. Your skepticism is not making my slackoff serotonin production get better. XD I know that may be news to a solipsist like you but - there you go and there you are. This isn't episode 26 of Evangelion, bud.

You don't sound cynical and worldly, you sound like what you are: a hipster trying frantically to be cool and falling short in a tragic, tragic way.

Either Google you some shit, Speciallest of Snowflakes, or shush while people with manners are talking. It's possible to express an opposing POV without being a little douche-kayak, you know. Indeed other people did that in the very same place and no one et their head because they were respectful.

It's all about the respect, Snowflake. If you moonwalk in here and make a point to backhandedly call people lazy manipulative liars, don't expect them to be cordial.

I've become a snob about ice cream.

...Well I was always PICKY about it but now it's just like - Chapman's can go to hell and suck THERE. XD; It tastes GRITTY.

Kawartha Dairy is the love of my life still but since I can't get that here right now fuck it HAAGEN DAZS IT IS!

Icon injoke nurr hurr. XD
