Between the hack of Gumi, and the bazillion-hour downtime, and now 23645237846 purported documents having been leaked so far (with some damned interesting shite in them, let's see if half of it comes true even), and etc etc ...

And of course the FFBE showing at Tokyo Game Show, which drove home a few different things:

- There is another artbook coming asdhasdjksfksddfgjkfgkkl I hope I manage to finangle this one also

- That special Rain in conjunction with said book + the Akibahara Festa just totally destroyed me

- I now have disgustingly cute chibis from the site for said Festa ~

- Damnit people stop teasing me with a release of Nichol's S2 render and a grainy picture showing one for Lid and Citra (and while we're at it, goddamn that new Amano art give me renders for all the Veritas plz) just give me more renders

- Oh jeezus that new key art ...


Welp, I have stuff to chew on anyway?

Fire Emblem Heroes wishlist

Because I 1) am working on climbing out of the hole, 2) was randomly pondering it while nuking the Black Knight with Genny and other antics, 3) feel like it, here is a totally not at all feasible wishlist of units I really badly want in FEH one of these days ~


- GIVE ME JUGDRALI DAMNIT. Seriously I want more Jugdrali and yes I am all towards Genealogy here because while that one gives me map agonies ahahahaa Thracia 776 ahahahaha ~

In no particular order: Sigurd, Dierdre, Arvis, Midayle, Edain, Quan, Ethlyn, Leif, Ayra, Altena, Travant, Arion, Ares, Finn, Julius (ahahaha), Erinyes, Nanna ...

Hell I want piles. Gimme Jugdrali.


- Why am I missing Important Bodies from Awakening?! Not faaaiiiir DX

Including but not limited to: Sumia (omfg), Owain (I don't care that Odin's in the game), Priam, Libra, Say'ri, Cynthia ...


- I don't know how actually viable it is on account of the Atlus factor, but I would die of lolsquee if FEH picked up units from Tokyo Mirage Sessions. Especially if, say, there was a banner for the modern-world nobs and a banner for Mirages. Yes please I would like Mirage Chrom and Mirage Virion yes yes 83

Got two drabbles done last night -- I haven't given up on StoryADay yet, and I started pecking at my prompt tables for [community profile] serendipityclaims, whee ~

Also I actually managed drafts for two locations for the gazetteer in the Black Hack hack omfg 83~

So, progress! Little progress but still progress!

On top of this stuff, I have my prompts for [personal profile] spook_me (let's go, not-at-all-cute Genealogy fic ~~), and -- all things being equal -- it just might be time to think about buckling down and dead tree'ing Equinox after all. Lol.

*tiny eee*

I have now hit the 100 Orb point in FEH and I still have maps left to go.

This will be very, very useful if that rumour about next month pans out --

lalalala it's a Fire Emblem meme ~

Continuing on the quest to climb out of a fandom hole, I decided to hunt up a Fire Emblem questionnaire meme!

... And then promptly gutted it of all the ridiculously over-specific questions, and tweaked a few others. You know, like one does with memes ~

That said, this is still 25 questions about FE, and that's kind of a lot.
So, this is now an Ask And Answer Meme! 83

Comment with the number or numbers of the questions you'd like me to answer, and I'll respond back. (no asking for every single one in a clot, that's just mean.)

It looks as official as it gets:

Harmony Gold's Macross, Mospeada, Southern Cross Licenses Still Expire in 2021

-- so this is the part where Harmony Gold needs to either get ready for a final winding down (unless things do actually wind up getting renewed after all, and I don't know how likely I find that), or (and I bet you can guess which option I favour at least trying) use the creations it has and build a proper 'new' Robotech.

I'd like to think that the new comic is an intermediary step -- changing up events and character details and such while retaining, for the moment, familiar trappings -- but somehow I don't know that I'd be so lucky.


Also, the bit in the article about "Harmony Gold owns the title Robotech in perpetuity, but when its license expires it will no longer be able to use or exploit works that are derivative of the three anime titles" is so disingenous I could chew up swords and spit out tacknails.

But I really shouldn't be surprised that the anime news site does its best to passive foster the continuing bullshit misinformation that Robotech has nothing of its own addition and creation, right? *snort*

For various reasons -- most online, but not all of them -- over the last several months my attachment to Fire Emblem (or chunks thereof) degraded from 'omnipresent part of fannish multitasking, several years consecutively' to 'get thee behind me, satan'.

This is, frankly, depressing as hell and I'd like to get my groove back. There are critters I do miss.

I'm open to thoughts on the subject?

Wonder Woman Co-Writer Jason Fuchs to Pen Live-Action Robotech's New Script

"Robotech was Harmony Gold's edited and rewritten 1985 adaptation of three separate anime science-fiction series: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, The Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada. The producers have yet to announce which, if any, of the three anime that the proposed live-action project will most follow, or how it will deal with the copyright issues between Harmony Gold's partner Tatsunoko Production and the creators of Macross (the most popular of the three anime)."

In a perfect world?

Hit the ground with "Zor's ship is sent out of his Masters' clutches, crashes on Earth with the pursuit hot on its tail space-travelingly-speaking, dude check out this alien tech and the whacked-out shit that powers it" -- and then run from there.

Make the fucking thing Robotech and shear as much of the borrowed details off as fucking possible. Keep what Macek wrote and others have elaborated on. Season with mecha to taste.

Of course I suppose that's easy for me to say because my own two most beloveds can skate through a purge like that untouched, but I don't care. I want it and would want it anyway.

Cut off the limb to save the body, it's already on fucking life support.
