a book report by atma: age 5

So people keep asking me "Atma, how does I watch Queen's Blade?" and while my first response is usually "ARE YOU SURE I MEAN THIS IS BOOBS WE'RE SPEAKING OF" I usually point them to some torrents. But why not have just a dedicated post for this I can point anyone to?

Recently celebrated two years together with [personal profile] catzero and feel great. Love ya, dear.

I re-did all my personal journal icons and think I'll take up iconning more often. I made a comm to dump them in at [community profile] shaifang if only because I work too damn hard on my RP icons and want to share, as well as start doing whatever catches my eye. Maybe I'll do icon sets for characters that nobody else icons, like Queen's Blade anything. Oddly proud of my own work for once.

Queen's Blade: Rebellion started airing on Tuesday. It'll be subbed by a reliable group that did the original series. Maybe I'll collect links to them as they're subbed and make just one big QB download resource post. People have been asking for one for a while. I saw the RAW, it's really good so far. It's definitely itself, even in sequel/new cast land, which is a good thing. This will be the main show I'm following this season, of course.

I've been playing this translation of an old, obscure SNES JRPG called Mystic Ark. It's a pseudo-sequel to the game The 7th Saga, if you've ever played that mess. It's really good and quite surreal so far. First I helped cat pirates, then people who lived in produce, then a kingdom of kids, and now I'm almost done helping a world that's 1/3 without sound and 1/3 without color and 1/3 rapidly aging. No idea what will happen next but it's all pretty amusing to watch unfold and has some great dialogue.

I'm probably going to help my school perform at a Japanese festival at the end of the month, which means demonstrating martial arts and swords in public. I hope I can do this. Sword classes also increase to twice a week next month.

About ready to start my own self-employment career of choice. Some of you already know what it is, and once I start, I'll make a locked post about it. I'd prefer all talk about it be done in private for personal reasons. If I can just make enough money for equipment and supplementary classes and maybe a treat like a fancy beer now and again, I'd be happy until I found steady work.

Not much has been going on recently. Which is good, slow and easy is always nice.

-Pretty sure I passed a surprise yellow belt test last week in karate. Should be getting it next week. Only one who passed, too.

-Finally ordering an iaito today or tomorrow. It will be that nice red one.

-Learned how to meditate properly in karate, brushed up on my warrior philosophy, and practiced my execution orders in swordsmanship. Way too many ways to split someone in twain.

-I may be doing a weekend of intensive training by April. Teacher just said he does this a couple times a year and will flesh out details whenever everyone attends again (class was small this week) and it'll be a weekend of 8 hours each of intense martial arts and sword work along with weapons maintenance work and such. Only breaking for food type deal. Get sunburned and pushed to your limit. Sounds like heaven to me. Hope I can get the money.

-Been slowly watching My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. It's not bad at all. Only up through like episode 11 of season 1 but Applejack pretty much owns.

-Also been replaying Dragon Quest 8. I never actually have beat it and just now got past the furthest point I've been, which is getting to the Godbird Isle/Empycchu. In Dark Empycchu now. Making sure to keep my mini medals up and I abused the fuck outta Baccarat's casino for a Gringham Whip and 4 Liquid Metal Armors. See also: Atma's huge dumb crush on Jessica, she's pretty much perfect, marry me already you vaguely Birtish and saucy sorceress. I love how witty and take no shit she is. Average party level is 36.

-I want to write a bunch of small fics. Mostly shameless femmeslash, but some more angst/serious. I have an idea for a fic about Alleyne and Aradia talking about life and death. One's a girl dead too many times and the other is technically immortal. Should be good and sad. I should probably do this.

My quest for an iaito (unsharpened metal katana used in swordsmanship practice) continues. Turns out my small size means regulation blades that sensei usually recommends are a tad too much for me to use; I can do everything with it just fine save for re-sheathing it. My small size means I often have to do a bit extra work and steps in all my classes to make up for how fucking short and skinny I am. We may have found one at last, and I hope I can use it. He knows sword quality and is pretty much on the mark with judging how I can adjust my techniques/use equipment to better suit my size but still wants me to try an adjustable wooden sword with scabbard first and see if I can manage an inch shorter than regulation; he's sure that's all I need and could use a 27inch blade with a bit of extra training just fine. I don't have this problem with basic bokken and suburito regardless of size because lol what scabbard.

Anyways. I hope I can use this sword. I mean come on, one of the two he picked out for me in this size is red. Look at it. Unf. It was made for me. Here's hoping. I'll find out during class tomorrow.

In other news, I made char siu broiled pork ribs for dinner tonight. Was my first attempt. Turned out pretty good, though I think mixing up the base sauce would make it even better. You can see some shots of my food here. Miyamoto Musashi himself advocated warriors being more well-rounded skill wise, including things like writing, the arts, appreciating tea, so this is one way I can round myself out as a knight/samurai is by providing others with food. Only Atma would relate cooking to warrior philosophy.

Last but not least, Queen's Blade: Rebellion is getting an anime adaptation this year, which means I'll probably app one of them somewhere eventually in RP, or at least meme them. Most likely Inquisitor Siggy, dominant women seem to be my type. That and I already made a journal for her; I just know she'll mesh well with me.

This post sums up my life pretty well; swords, food, boobs. Such is my existence. See also: being unashamed.
