School is fun. But hard. But fun. Basically here's how life has been for the past month or so:

-Classes started about a week ago. What am I taking?

-German 200
-Japanese 101
-Hungarian 101
-Interior Design lab (1st level)
-Oceanography
-Ballroom dancing

Yes this is ridiculous and an excessive amount of foreign languages. No I do not care. Also holy shit so glad I'm taking Hungarian. This class is so fun, and I love this language. I. think I may even like it more than German. Obviously my heart belongs to Germany still and there won't be any alterations in my moving plans, but as a language, Hungarian just. Has me.

Also I'm addicted to Weiß Schwarz. It's a trading card game based on anime. Various different anime. I play from Madoka Magica. My deck was originally 2 trial decks merged, but I went crazy and bought a whole booster box recently, so that deck split in two. What I'm using right now is a green/yellow Madoka/Mami deck. I plan on also making a red/blue Kyoko/Sayaka deck, but there are some cards I need that I don't have but can't really make a strong deck with those two without. The Mami/Madoka deck is pretty boss, though. I playtested it with Korey and devastated him twice. Feeling good about this deck, and it's not even 100% done.

...Speaking of going crazy and spending excessive money, I also bought a hitachi at last! It's. SO GOOD. I also got an attachment for it (because tbh as awesome as they are it's a bit hard to get the vibrations where you want them without an attachment), a Wartenburg pinwheel, and a copy of a Swedish lesbian film that I can't recommend highly enough called Kiss Me. Yeah. I'm responsible with money. To be fair when I bought the hitachi it was when Korey and I were out in Chicago taking Katie home and having our last hurrah of the summer. She took us to what was...basically the gay district. And there were a bunch of sex shops. So I couldn't resist.

Oh yeah I was doing a 30 days meme wasn't I? Let's continue that.

no one cares do they )
nachtmusik: (biergarten)
So my birthday was pretty fucking awesome. It involved getting a copy of the Mass Effect trilogy for PS3 from Korey and a digital SLR camera from my parents, for one thing. Though I actually got the camera the day after so I didn't have it when Korey and I went to the botanical garden in Fort Wayne. I did still get some awesome butterfly pictures with my phone, though. Dinner at Takaoka was excellent as always, and then the highlight of the night was Korey taking me to a strip club. That was so awesome. I...actually got a stripper's number how the fuck did that even happen. We've been texting each other and just. Yeah. * ^ *. My life is pretty awesome.

Then yesterday was JAFAX. It was a good time as always, given it's a fairly short drive and a free event. It was me, Korey, and DJ this time. Cody spent all his money at ACen so he didn't come. I bought the first set of Tanto Cuore and a pair of stegosaurus hairclips. I of course spent most of my time hanging out with Betsy, since that's why I even go to JAFAX. We mostly wandered around, but we went to 3 panels. The first was the Lily Girls yuri panel. I'm actually on the team that presents this, but I've yet to officially present it. I mostly just end up basically turning into a copanelist when I show up, though I WILL officially run it. It's always a good time. My friend Katelyn runs it. It was good to see her. I also met Madison, one of the other 3 people on the team besides me. She's super cute omg.

The second one we went to was easily the best. It was a hentai panel. Specifically a panel of audience participation in which the purpose was dramatic readings of hentai manga. It. was. hilarious. I read one, and DJ also got to read one. DJ was....perfect. He was doing the male part in a mother/son incest futanari manga. And he read it in this fucking hilarious monotone voice that was just. omg. I couldn't stop laughing, nor could anyone else.

The third was "are you the cancer killing your fandom?", which is a panel I've wanted to go to for years since it's hosted at ACen a lot but I've just never made it. I was expecting something more negative and less serious, I think. Like the weebstories tumblr. But I liked what it actually was a lot better. It was more calling out the really extreme things that happen as crazy and encouraging the audience to not be like that. It was funny and well presented and generally enjoyable.

That was basically my time at JAFAX. Pretty fun.

Anyway let's do that meme again.

sick of it yet? )
nachtmusik: (otaku Lizzy)
My favorite time of the year! I'll be going to Chicago Thursday morning like usual. My group this year is almost entirely ACen newbies, too. I have Katie, but aside from her? It's Korey, DJ, Cody, and Cody's girlfriend. Should be a fun time. I'm cosplaying Rin Tohsaka from Fate/Stay Night, Rarity from MLP, and maybe Applejack from MLP and/or fem!England from Hetalia. Rin's particularly exciting. This is the first costume where I've actually sewn any of it myself. I made the skirt from scratch.

My list of shit I want to do is crazy long so I'm not even going to try to list it all out here. My schedule on the guidebook app is absurd and has conflicts that I intentionally left in so I have a backup option listed on my phone if something I want to do is full or something. A few guaranteed things, though:

Kalafina concert
at least one of the raves
visual novel and doujin panels
stuff Helen McCarthy and Yuu Asakawa are doing
yuri panels


So. much. to. do.

Also, re; college, SO FUCKING GLAD I'M HOME. My GPA kinda got shot in the face because fuck finite, but I did pretty okay in everything else and holy shit I love not being in dorms. My schedule for fall is far more appealing, too.

oh hey that one meme where I talk about myself )
nachtmusik: (Default)
So. Life punched me in the face over the past couple weeks. I don't really want to talk about it but I've been stressed like crazy, ugh.

In brighter news, Korey and I had a nice Valentine's Day. We went to an Irish restaurant and a Harry and the Potters concert.

Now how about another post of that meme?

Day 02 – Your first love )

the rest of the days )
nachtmusik: (demonic yuri)
So, a few things have happened since Korey and I celebrated our anniversary. Mostly good things. I did break up with my girlfriend, though. It just wasn't working out romantically anymore, there's no animosity between us. Aside from that, I've been busy with classes and with events and the like. My friend Rob had me and some other people over to marathon all 3 of the extended versions of the Lord of the Rings movies, which was fucking awesome. I made a new friend while I was there, too. Then, a couple weeks ago mom and Korey both came to visit and we all went to see Joshua Bell and the Cleveland Orchestra in concert. It was, of course, incredible. Then this weekend has been fucking great. There's an annual PRIDE film festival going on. I worked as an usher for it on Thursday and Friday night, which got me into the films free (not that it mattered since I also bought a pass) and a free shirt (which is extremely cool). Whoever designed the shirts is awesome because the deal is that it has the film festival's logo on the back, and the front is blank. At the festival, though, there was an iron on station where you could pick which icons you wanted. Mine has three bi icons in a diagonal line and it looks really cool. I made new friends at the festival, too. Also, unfortunately technical difficulties forced them to stop the movie before it was done, but the Swedish film Kyss Mig is extremely impressive. One of the main characters is actually bi and it's actually handled really well.

Last night was particularly interesting. First I went and got my hair done because it was a fucking disaster and my neck desperately needed shaved. I've been going to the hair salon in the union building, but they fucked up so badly last time that I said hell no and found a new place (though the union salon is closed on Saturdays anyway). I wandered into a nice little place by a couple bars and got a really fucking cute haircut that I love, and also on a whim put some color in it. It's a mixture of blue and violet that came out as this really sexy purple-ish dark blue. It's just a streak on the right side. This caused me to be 5 minutes late for the opera, but it was worth it. I was dressed for a rave while at the opera, also. The show was Xerxes, and it was excellent. Worth skipping yesterday's films at PRIDE for (I already had my Xerxes ticket way in advance). Also, both my night and the other nights' performer for Xerxes were actually women so I really couldn't unsee him as a butch lesbian. Oops. It didn't help that the woman he ends up with has super short hair for most of the opera.

After the opera I went straight back to the Buskirk-Chumley where the festival is for the dance party. It was so fun omfg. For one thing, I got to see Ali again for the first time since her class ended, and I hung out with her and her friends for most of the night. Also I kinda sorta made out with three different women. Oh yes. That was nice.

Oh also a couple things I'm late to mention:

1. This is my class schedule for this semester:
German: G150
Italian: FRIT-M 100
Finite matematics (shoot me in the face oh my god)

Then I have a Lord of the Rings linguistics class that doesn't start until the 2nd 8 weeks.

2. Korey and I found and leased an apartment. It's a 1 bedroom near the stadium and we can have my puppy. <3

Anyway, 30 Days of Me meme!

because I am a narcissist )


the rest of the days )
nachtmusik: (pocky game [Kyoko/Sayaka])
First I'd like to remind you all that I'm possibly offering Christmas cards but I'll need your addresses if you want one.

Also I'm doing that holiday wishes meme again because why not. I throw it up every year.

STEP ONE
Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!
Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ/Dreamwidth so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
Surf around your friends list (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part...

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes one person's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


1. German language practice partners. I have skype, and just writing back and forth in German works, too, but I need practice.

2. A donation to The ASPCA in my name

3. Adopt an endangered species from The World Wildlife Federation for me. Any animal would be appreciated, but I'd particularly like it to go to a tiger, gray wolf, snow leopard, arctic fox, Darwin's fox, red fox, or anaconda. Honestly, any of the foxes in particular would be preferable.

4. f!Hawke/Merrill, Isabela/Bethany, and Zevran/Wynne fanworks (Dragon Age 2 and Origins). I'd especially love it if you used my custom Hawke. If anyone wants to do that I'll upload a picture of her. Default Hawke is fine too though.

5. Points for my crunchyroll account so renewing it isn't so expensive, or a 6 month or year subscription. My username is feuerwerke.

6. Hairclips. Cute hairclips make me super happy.

7. Healthy recipes that are also delicious

8. Music! Just make me a mixtape of songs you think I'd like, either by just giving me a mediafire link, or the old fashioned way, burning it onto a CD.

9. Volunteer at your local animal shelter. Just comment here to say you did it afterward. That'll make me smile.

10. A giftcard to Noodles & Co or Potbelly's. Hungry college student and all.

Just ask me for my address if you want to do anything you'd need it for.

1. My paid account and extra icon package expire soon here, sadly. I'd love for someone to renew it for me if they feel so inclined.
2. Austria/Hungary fic/art/any other sort of creative work! There's never enough of my OTP out there as far as I'm concerned.
3. Hairclips! I'm kind of addicted to them. Especially the bow-shaped kind.
4. Things that'll be useful for college next fall. Even just tips on good things to pack would work here as well as physical items, I'm kind of in over my head on this one! Though one thing (aside from a laptop) that I know I need but don't have yet is an umbrella.
5. Cute shirts, size L-2X. I'm trying not to do much clothes shopping for myself right now because of how rapid my weight loss is; within a few months things that fit perfect now will be too big (though I have a seamstress that can resize things for me, so it's not like it's a total waste, but still). However, most of the shirts in my closet are like. 3X and 4X and I'm swimming in them right now. So yeah shirts would be awesome.
6. Fic/Art/Etc of some of my rarer ships! Switzerland/Belgium, Prussia/Italy, Vietnam/Taiwan, Hungary/fem!Prussia, Monaco/Liechtenstein, etc. Ships from my other fandoms are loved, too! Like Komui/Miranda. Or hell, Kyoko/Sayaka would be appreciated, too, even though it's FAR from a rarepair. If you check my journal I have an intro post with most of my ships.
7. Adopt an endangered animal in my name! I'd really love for anyone to do this with any animal, but I'd especially appreciate arctic fox, kit fox, snow leopard, clouded leopard, and bat adoptions in particular.
8. Donate to the ASPCA for me!
9. Recipes! Any recipes for good, healthy meat, cheese, dairy, etc dishes. After my surgery I really need to make sure I'm eating a lot of protein, so I always need new ideas for things to make that have lots of protein.
10. People to practice my German with! Via text or verbally on Skype or both.
nachtmusik: (Default)
Let's start with the writing meme. For each letter of the alphabet, I'll take one request for a drabble. Give me a character or pairing, and a prompt that starts with the letter you choose. For example:

"A: Apples, America/Ukraine"

The fandoms I'm willing to write for include:

Hetalia, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, D. Gray-Man, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, Harry Potter, Princess Tutu, K-ON!, Drifters, Pokemon (first, second, and fifth gen gameverse or first season through Johto animeverse only), and Black Rock Shooter (I can only do Yomi/Mato or Dead Master/Black Rock Shooter, or those two characters though).

A - Apples - Kyoko/Sayaka ([livejournal.com profile] rosetteroulette)

icon meme~

Aug. 22nd, 2011 09:55 am
nachtmusik: (trolls trolling trolls)
1. Reply to this post with "nyan nyan nyan", and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

[livejournal.com profile] reaperangelique gave me these~

1.

Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon! He's so cute and I love him ;3;. Around the time of the Oscars I realized that I had no HTTYD icons whatsoever and sought to fix that, so I uploaded a few of Toothless. This is kind of a "what the fuck is this?"/surprised face when I use it.

2.

Chi~! God she's so cute. Chi's Sweet Home is one of the cutest shows ever, if not the cutest. I love it so much. 3 minute episodes of a cute kitten being cute? Hell yeah I'm watching that. I figured a Chi icon would be a good icon to have for when I'm talking about my cats, though I also need it when I just need a cute icon in general. Alternatively, my happy Houndour icon is useful for when talking about Berlitz, as well as my icons of Germany.

3.

I wanted an icon of Megurine Luka at one point but wasn't having much luck finding good ones on the Vocaloid communities. The first thing I ran across that I liked was this icon of Takoluka. She's so cute ;3; It's kind of a surprised face, too, and for when I mess something up.

4.

Komui Lee from D. Gray-man. He has a lovely habit of pretending to talk on the phone long after the other person has hung up in order to avoid work. I love him, he's a hilarious character. This icon is great for...various things.

5.

Nothing says "rage" quite like Madoka stuffing Kyubey into a toilet! When I started uploading Madoka icons, I wanted to have at least one of each of the main girls, and I really love this picture of Madoka l-lol. Also it gets Kyubey in there. This is one of my favorite icons, I should use it more often.
nachtmusik: (Hungarian titties~)
Here are the icons that people asked me about in that last post!

Why am I so obsessed with icons )

nachtmusik: (Default)
I filled my 110 icon slots!

I'm proud of myself, there's a lot of variety in there. So let's celebrate with some icon memes! This one's something that [livejournal.com profile] abarero did in March, but I didn't do it then because I was attempting to do [livejournal.com profile] cloverbooks

Icon Meme
1. Pick an icon that is so very me.
2. Pick an icon that makes you laugh.
3. Pick an icon you don't understand.
4. Pick an icon you'd make out with.
5. Pick your favorite icon.
6. Pick an icon that you makes you curious.
7. Pick an icon that makes you :(
8. Pick an icon I should use more.
9. Pick an icon that makes you go "Aw!"
10. Pick any other icon you want for any reason

Also a paraphrased inversion of the classic 5 icons meme:
1. Pick 5 of my icons that you want me to talk about in detail. Why I'm using it, etc. Leave your choices in the comments
2. I will make a new post with my answers
3. copypaste these directions so you can do it too!

I know I'm not supposed to post memes given that I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] cloverbooks, but I missed a couple posts of it anyway and this is an RP meme so I'm doing it anyway.


【the CALL ME OUT meme】
a roleplay meme to inspire muses.

Come on in!

Muselist, rules, etc, in the post the above link leads to
nachtmusik: (Panty the crazy sexy blondie)
I asked a couple more people to do it because I'm a doofus, so



I love England/Japan no matter what, but I especially love it when it is yuri. So. Yeah. I needed this.



I adore Korea. He's needed in my icon arsenal.



Obligatory Christmas icon. Hungary is hot, I can never have too many icons of her.



Mugi from K-ON! She's a cutie and good for general good moods, also for feeling pretty because this is from a dress-up scene.



I'm...very partial to this Portugal design and I hope it's the canon Portugal in the end ;3;



This is from the best car commercial ever. They're cosplaying Oscar and Andre from Rose of Versailles. Actually, they're takurazuka actresses, but the point stands.



America being a superhero is too perfect to pass up! I just fell in love with this icon~



One of my newest icons, this is Kyoko from Puella Magi Madoka Magica! She just wanted to share an apple with you, Sayaka, no need to be a dick.



I am a Wickedfag and nothing is more inspirational to me than Defying Gravity. So this is a very useful icon~



...Would it really be me without an icon of Germany with tits?



This is from the Christmas bloodbath 2010, specifically where Germany is mentally processing how England has to fly all the way to America to hit him if he really wants to smack America. England preparing for travel is so so cute ;3;



Date Masamune from Sengoku Basara with the awesome face shooped onto him. I don't even know.
nachtmusik: (HE'S CLIMBIN' IN YO WINDOWS)
Apparently not. Meme from [livejournal.com profile] piratelicker

Reply to this entry with "MUKYUU" somewhere in your comment. Then I'll choose six of your icons for you to talk about in your own journal.

1.

Okay well to start this out I should probably say that, while I do take world events seriously, I also have a habit of being highly amused by various world leaders and their antics. Merkel is one of my favorites because of the facial expressions she makes. So one day a friend of mine linked me to this news article and the two of us, along with another friend, died laughing at it and at how, when taken out of context, pretty much every image used in the article could look like evidence of a ~forbidden love affair~. So I resisted the urge for a while, but finally I needed an icon of this.

2.

I went on a Panty and Stocking icon spree not too long ago, and I felt bad about leaving out certain characters. I scoured the icon posts for icons I liked of Scanty by herself, same with Panty. And I just couldn't leave out poor Garterbelt either. So now I have this oh so GAR icon.

3.

This is a picture of Denmark in a puffin head mask getting punched by the giant disembodied fist of what I presume to be one of Norway's trolls. What more needs to be said? Well I guess that he was terrorizing young Iceland in the original picture.

4.

This is an icon of Joan of Arc and Anastasia as they are portrayed in Drifters. As a yuri pairing (this isn't canon in Drifters btw, but it is canon that they are batshit insane). See why it's keyworded "blasphemy"?

5.

The music notes spell out F-A-C-E. I'm a silly who likes music puns.

6.

Chiaki and Nodame are cute and all, but my favorite Nodame couple was easily Kiyora and Mine. This scene amused me, so I screencapped and icon'd it. It's the scene where Mine is telling the for-fun orchestra that Chiaki put together of all of the changes that he'd made to it without telling anyone, like naming it "the Rising Star Orchestra", among other dorky things like that. So Kiyora, as his girlfriend, takes it upon herself as her responsibility to beat some sense into him.

boredom...

* Favorite quote or line they’ve said
