To those it may concern:

I've found some free webhosting and am in the process of reuploading my Tokyo Mew Mew fansite as it was in 2008/2009/2010. I am making ABSOLUTELY NO PROMISES about any new content, but I may fix up some loose ends if I'm inclined to do so at a later date. (We'll see what happens.)

I had started uploading pages to livejournal, but that was just way too tedious, and this host actually allows FTP/PHP so it's just a matter of drag-and-dropping all the content from a folder on my laptop onto the site server.

I'll post the link as soon as the site's presentable.

That's it. Thanks!

So my mom and I went to see Sherlock Holmes in the new theater.

I feel bad for her because I know she's not really into action stuff (she likes romance/rom-com), and even I thought the part with the corpse and the part with the frogs... and the part with the pigs were kinda gruesome. Okay, so the pigs were really gruesome. *wince* But I liked the dynamics between Watson and Sherlock Holmes a lot. Watson so awesome. And the way they showed how Sherlock figured everything out was pretty cool, also.

And I canceled my domain yesterday. (MewProject.net) I saved all the files from Pocky's Pai site on my hard drive, so I should still have everything. I'm kind of not sure how this is going down, since I got an invoice a few days ago for the next 6 months, but they deleted the site yesterday/today, and they don't actually deduct the money for 7 days, so I'm not sure if I'm paying for the next 6 months or not. If that had been the case, I would have rather kept it online until July. I actually meant to cancel sooner but I kept putting it off and meh... But the cancellation has gone through. I will probably upload some of the information and scans somewhere or donate them to other websites since I did spend a ton of time on everything. I do regret not finishing it, but, I don't have the time or desire to be updating it frequently anymore, and I hate leaving it in limbo like that. This site has been a big part of my life and I think it taught me quite a bit, and so many people offered me support. I will never forget that.

But there has been a slight update with TMM in my life. I went to Barnes & Noble and actually found Mia Ikumi's "Only One Wish" one-shot. And I finished it already. It was okay... about on par with "Koi Cupid". My main complaint is that all of her character designs look the same - especially with the boys. Half of them looked like Ryou. But I did like that they had some nods at TMM in there. The first story had "Petit Mew Mew" manga and the second story had a Mew Ichigo mask. The end also has a short story where Zakuro gets cast in a "Wish" drama as the dark angel and they cast kitty!Ichigo as her black cat. They also have Berry turn into a rabbit (with a cat tail). They mention Zakuro "co-starring with a rabbit", she sneezes, and then she poofs. O_o; Hmm? Also, since this is Del Rey, Pudding keeps her "noda", Mint uses "oneesama", Ichigo uses "meow" and (incorrectly, unless this is a half-and-half translation?) "mya". And Berry uses "mya".

And Pudding breaks the fourth wall.

This week sucked. I could write a book on all the miniature disasters which made it that way. Can only hope a weekend of "me" time will make me feel better.

Started "Light On Snow". The writing style is really simple, and it makes it a little choppy and difficult to read after what I'm used to. (I think it's trying to stay neat and simple because it's written in first person and the girl is twelve at the time.) But it's fairly interesting so far, I guess.

Someone bought the used manga I was finally gonna get, though. And it'd been there for months and no one touched it before. ;-; orz

I.... didn't do it on purpose. REALLY.
Because normally I hate crack and I hate cross-overs, but, when I discovered my Mew Mew figures also have ball joints in their necks... yeah.

Oh, and Nadeshiko only took a few minutes to put together because I finally realized the heads just pop on. Utau's just really difficult to take apart/put together for some reason.

Ichigo looks so cute in black. Eee.

Now hurry up and make Rima, Kairi, Kukai, Nagihiko, and Amulet Spade figurines.
Ikuto would be dreamy too. Bah.

And on the figurine note, ANN's having a fanart contest for a Hatsune Miku. I am so there. She's really pretty.
ellana: (Kitty Friend)
Oh gosh, what do I take a picture of today? I don't want them all to be anime stuff - which would have been easy today. Hm...

How about Jake?

...well, I ended up getting some horribly amusing shots of my horribly annoyed kitty. He didn't like the flash at all, nor did he like being catnapped and forced to pose.

So I'm giving you the silliest one.

I listened to Abba songs all day... And my thoughts amused me greatly.

If I could do a cosplay skit. Ichigo and the girls at the cafe singing "Money Money Money" with Ryou looking bored. With dance moves and air-brooming and picket signs to protest overworked and not enough pay. That and Liz belting out chipper 80's tunes was enough to make me giggle at least once.
ellana: (Dancing Queen)
Agh. I am so ronery it is killing me. =_=
I have no right to say so, however, since I don't talk much when I actually have someone willing to talk to me. I'm like a cat, I guess. Meagan called me a cat. (She was a wolf. It worked.)

So I got to work. Same old, same old.

My mom sent me flowers (I had joked about her doing that for my birthday) at work and gave me an embarassing card. I think the flowers were paid more mind than I have in the three months I have been down there. It wasn't until AFTER they were delivered that people even asked me about my birthday. I wore my necklace to work, too.

The strawberries are a pillowcase my mom made for me during college. I have another one with kitties on it and some with geishas. My mom is very talented with a sewing machine. =3

As for work at work, it was dead today. Very, very dead. I think I know most everything going on in the world that interests me. Oh, and by the way, gray wolves in the Northern Rockies are going back to endangered status a mere seven months after they were removed from the list.

Got home and found Arcia's letter and entry for my Ichigo contest and my DVD from SMJ, so I got to watch episode 36 in Japanese, on an official Japanese DVD. It was kinda cool. But I liked the letter better. =D

And I will be writing you back as soon as I can. Isn't the envelope adorable? ^^

The case was cracked so I switched it into another case, but the DVD itself was new and sealed. For anyone curious, vol. 6 has episodes 31-36 and no extras to speak of except for really nice printing on the package art. Oh, and there's an insert with prices and release dates for DVDs and CDs, but that's about it. The menu's pretty basic as well, and when you select a specific episode from the main menu, the clip will play in the sub menu, otherwise it's a still image. In the case of episode 36, the still image is Ryou's showerhead and the clip is of Ryou taking a shower and Keiichiro talking with Ichigo about Ryou's "style".

Main menu

I've also been working on researching for my TMM prequel (aka my Shirogane-tachi AU), and I even got my mom to help. I am trying to find a good song for each year and each chapter will represent a year starting from Professor Shirogane (still Jishou in this because I'd feel bad renaming him) comes to America (still New York =P) until whenever I end up stopping it due to lack of interest on my part or that of whoever will actually read it. Going by the manga timeline, I figured Ryou would be born around 1985, and I'm starting the fanfic in 1970. The 80's is full of great music, but the 70's are a little harder for me. So far I have "Your Song" for 1970 and "Time in a Bottle" for 1973. =) Anyway, I'll definitely be learning while I write this. I'm just stuck because I'm not sure what kind of a person Ilan is. Well, in this he is a stock broker. I'm obviously influenced by the news, huh?

Art preview? =D


I have more started, this is just the most recent.

If I finish Lemon and Lentil and then draw and color Tiramisu, I get a break from drawing Mew Mews. =D

Oh, and the secret is revealed. My mom sent my dad back to buy the necklace while we were in the restroom and they kept it a secret all this time and were going to save it until Christmas. Sneaky.

Sky Jack. =P

My auction came in the mail today but half of the contents are missing.
I hope SMJ can find them.

ellana: (Saint Tail :3)
Don't let me go shopping anymore! @-@

Well, first we went to the art show. Some of the work was really awesome and it really made me want to try experimenting with my camera and finish some paintings I had started. I want to paint landscapes/animals again. ^^;;

Then we ate Arbys. Yay~ --man, why do the neighbors have to ride a 4-wheeler through the woods every single afternoon? It's so distracting. I hate it. People mow at the worst times, too. At least the deer aren't scared of it. Lawl.

Then we went to the used bookstore. Looked around and finally found a small stack of manga. (Lawl they had TMM 4). Anyway, they were only $1.50 each! Ahh! So I grabbed the ones I was interested in - they had Dream Saga 2 & 3 (never bought them and now you can't find them), Cyber Idol Mink 1 (I've been wanting to read this for a while thanks to Satou-chan) and Card Captor Sakura 6 (I don't have any CCS manga anymore, but they're the nice versions with the color art and it's the end/SyaoranxSakura confession~ *heart*).

Then we went to Barnes & Noble where I was determined to snatch up Shugo Chara! 4 once and for all. I also got S.A. 1.

THEN we went to Big Lots and... they had some anime. First I saw an Angel Tales boxset... I do not know much about the series (I didn't get it), but then I saw the Galaxy Angel box set behind it for $10. It's special edition and has two mini clear boards and five mini figures and some pamphlets. So I slink over to my mom and I'm like "Look what I found...? =D" Well, I paid for my stuff. ^^; The only thing my mom bought me was I wanted a tear-off calendar for my desk for next year and I saw one advertized as "cute/adorable!!" with all these baby animal pictures and it was the last one. Come on, how can you resist a little baby red panda? So I asked her to get it for me for Christmas. ^^; I think staring at cute animals each day would put a smile on my face. ^^; I love cute things, okay? Who doesn't?

So that's my shopping excursion. e-e; Well, they were mostly bargains, so I spent like $40 in the end which isn't terrible... For six books and a boxset? Granted two of the books look like they've been sitting in a basement for a while, but still, that's doing okay, right? And I'm helping the economy!! (Not really but I can dream. ^^;)

Now to clean and paint. =D!
ellana: (Dancing Queen)
So I was "sick" again this morning until lunch. I didn't have Chinese food this time, so I'm not sure why I felt so bad, but it was pretty horrible. I almost asked to leave.

Well, there was not much to do, but I got my main real estate page done as much as I possibly could. I/we left early every day this week... eeh. e-e;

My sticker/stationery furoku came but nothing else has. e-e; And this I ordered most recently. Anyway, the stationery is too cute. The envelope and pages are styled like teabags/teabag packaging. It's supposed to be "Extra Quality Sweet Strawberry Tea". Lawl, go figure. I know we joke about strawberry cake, but apparently Ichigo actually makes strawberry tea. Let's all get our facts straight from now on. /joke

Tomorrow I'm going to an art show with my mom and to another used bookstore. Maybe I can finish "I, Coriander" tonight so I can start "Singer" over the weekend. I also need to record this weekend. Ran, Miwa, Masha... lots of screeching. Yeah.

Story Title: Heure de Départ

Rating: K+ for a kiss and a mention of child molesting (don't ask), and that's it.

Summary: Sometimes it's better when you don't take the train. That's when Ichigo meets Ryou who enlists her help in tracking wandering ghosts and settling a misunderstanding that goes beyond the grave.

...I never understood that superstition.

I decided to enter a RxI AU fanfic competition after one of the gals from FF.NET PMed me to tell me about it. I wasn't going to enter, and then I thought it might do me some good to enter something, and then I came up with a [debatably] really good idea. Unfortunately, the way I set it up, the story is a little cramped, and there's still no fluff halfway through it. ^^; I'm so awful... I even -like- fluff, but yanno, in fanfics some of the fluff ends up being generic and it all sounds the same. I know a lot of fanfics by new authors tend to have the same fluff when they read the same other fanfics by older authors. Not saying anyone copies me in that department, but I do remember a few things that got absorbed into the Ryou-centric fanfic community - mostly regarding his kitty side. XDD It's kind of funny and embarrassing at the same time.

Anyway, I will probably plug the fanfic when it gets finished. Feel free to read it if you're interested... it still has no fluff yet, so I'm iffy about forcing it in there at the end. I guess we'll see what happens. Anyway, it's similar to the original TMM universe, only Ryou enlists Ichigo's help to communicate with ghosts. [And yes, ghosts still scare the pee outta her.] Ryou's a scientist still, yeah, but he's researching urban myths like crop circles and ghosts, and other things that can't be explained. Why is he so set on having her track them down? Apparently he and his dad had a big fight before he was killed in an accident and Ryou is determined to let his dad's wandering spirit rest in peace. Yeah, I don't know either, but it was cool when it was in my head as a random idea. I blame Casper.
ellana: (larissa)
Please realize there are only about three characters I have a personal fanon for (the Shiroganes), and one's mostly borrowed from a collective fanon. Otherwise you'd probably be stuck with my RP characters or my original characters from alleyWAY, Ma.Gi.En., Shooting Star Prophecy, etc. I should do a proper list some day.

Victim I stole from: [livejournal.com profile] regalblaze

Name a character (or characters) from one of my fandoms and I'll give you:
(a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is awesomecakes
(d) five things that never happened to that character and/or
(e) five people that character never fell in love with and why

Proper List Beginning )
