Wishlist Meme~  
- Do an entry in your LJ. The post should have 10 Christmas Wishes.
- The wishes can be anything, like something simple and fan-like ("I'd like an Ron/Hermione icon only for me"), something really big ("I want a notebook, car, tv, house") or in between both ("I'd like a dvd") the important thing is that you're sure that you really want those things.
- If you want "real" things (not stories or icons) be sure of posting your e-mail or adress where the kings (You know, the biblical Magi, the ones who gave presents to Jesus) can contact with you.

- Check if anyone in your f-list has post this.
- And the most important: If you see a wish you can make true and you have all the intention of doing it, make that person's wish true.

Stole this from pocketbiscuit , in an attempt to start posting in my journal. ;; I mainly use my account for communities, but I should at least -try- to use it for personal stuff haha. I may steal ideas from her for this, though --- there really isn't much I can think of that I want, and I don't want to put anything too terribly expensive money-wise on here if I can help it. ;v; *guilty conscience*

1. 1680x1050 wallpapers from series I like. There are surprisingly very few online.
2. Fanart! Either from series I like or of my oc's. Since I don't really have a list of favs anywhere...Ace, Joker, and Gray from HnKnA; Shizuo, Celty, and Kida from DRRR!!; Kamina, Simon, Yoko, Viral and Kittan from Gurren; Nono and Larc from Diebuster; and Karasu from Noein, haha. ;; I'm very easy to please~
3. Postcards/cards in general! I'd love to be able to trade with people on here.
4. Links to good artists. I've been lacking inspiration, and I love to just look through pages of people who do amazing work~ (I also need to build my art collection back up, since I lost all of my HDD data recently). ;v;
5. HUGS. I suddenly desire hugs. Out of nowhere. And I don't normally like them.
6. More otome fans to talk with. <3
7. Turtle things. I've started collecting turtles (everyone in my family has to collect some animal thing....don't ask why) and I find anything related to them adorable~ Same with bats and bunnies. ;; Or anything remotely cute, really.
8. Music recommendations~ I'll listen to just about anything --- lately, Ive been listening to stuff as different as the Repo! soundtrack, Deadmau5, Vocaloid mixes, and chill indie music. But I really need some new stuff, heh.
9. HnKnA character manga and anthologies~ They're absolutely addicting. ;v;
10. For others to do this so I can give out lots of gifties this year!

Just as pocketbiscuit said in hers (heh;; ) I'd like to trade postcards/cards in general, but I need to go buy some first. ;; If people -want- to trade cards, I'd be more willing to go pick some up~ If you want my address, ask and I'll PM it to you!
Current Mood: restlessrestless
Current Music: Repo! OST

Your journal! It's alive! Hooray!

And I've set up a Christmas card post on my journal, meaning that I would love to trade some cards with you if you want C:

As for music ... my favorite band is Carbon Leaf, and I've been listening to a lot of Ingrid Michaelson lately as well. They're both pretty chill, although Carbon Leaf is much more upbeat in general, and they've got lovely lyrics ♥ Indian Summer is a pretty good album to start with if you're interested :D
partybat on November 27th, 2010 06:15 am (UTC)
Yeyyy~ (finally hurhur)

Awesome! 8D I'll definitely send you a PM tomorrow~ *too tired/lazy/distracted by Vocaloid rhythm games right now heh*

I'm listening to a song by Carbon Leaf right now...the singer's voice~ <3 This is definitely getting to the "voice-obsessed" side of me. xD It is very chill though, which is nice --- usually people with these sorts of voices have much heavier background music, so this is a nice change~ And now I'm listening to Ingrid Michaelson...her voice as well! Thank you for the recommendations --- this is the sot of music I was missing from my library. ;v;
fishandcheese on November 28th, 2010 03:54 am (UTC)
Haha, take your time! Sadly, I can't work on these until after school lets out anyway :(

Oh my goodness, yes, I LOVE the guy's voice. I admit to knowing next to nothing about the band other than I like their music XD But yay, I'm glad you liked both of 'em!
partybat on November 29th, 2010 05:01 pm (UTC)
Well good luck with the remainder of the semester! ;v; It's almost overrrrr~

Gah yes~ Pff, I can't say I'm any better --- the only bands I know anything about are my domgfavorite ones, and even then I don't really know that much about them. ;; Thanks again~
pocketbiscuit on November 22nd, 2010 11:58 pm (UTC)
//gives virtual hug 8D

are you looking for art for any fandom in particular? there's a quinrose search engine if you are interested in looking there >w< (http://ashrose.eek.jp/quinrose/) i haven't been stalking alice fanart lately~ my collection is too small. ;w;

i may be able to fulfill some wishes for you! if you don't mind that i can't draw well and i'll get back to you for your address soon too. 8D
partybat on November 27th, 2010 06:24 am (UTC)
;v; *hugglesniggle*

Ah! Yes, I've gotten a lot of stuff from there before! Thanks for reminding me about it though --- I figured out that the harddrive I was worried about is officially dead, so I'm having to rebuild my "collection" of downloaded stuff. =v=

Pffft! I saw your Gintama piece! Don't sell yourself short. ;v; This'll probably just end up being a fanart trade huhu~ *excitement* Awesome --- now I have even more reason to get off my lazy butt and go pick up some postcards. xD
auburn_leaves on November 23rd, 2010 09:06 am (UTC)
*hugs you* 8D >w<

I can't really help you in the fanart department, because 1. I don't draw and 2. a certain ninja provides me with all the fanart 8D There's this Japanese site with lots of fanart from all kinds of series, and sometimes you can see some really awesome things there *___* Maybe you already know it, but here's the address just in case 8D www.pixiv.net

I will try to do something about a postcard though 8D It's about time I went to buy some >.< *is lazy* I'll look for something nice for you :3

Hmm, point 8 is tough xD I'm not sure if you like old music? Like the bands from the '80s and the like? I'd recommend Falco, OMD, Alphaville, Sandra. Then there's this whole "gothic" type of music, with my fav bands being Nightwish and Within Temptation. For something Japanese, do you know a band called Kelun? They did an ending for Gintama, and I really love their songs <33333 If you'd be interested, I can provide you with some links 8D It's really hard to give recommendations, because I listen to all kinds of music, and I don't know which artists do you know already xD If I think of anything else, I'll let you know ^^

PS. For your LJ, you can always spam it with memes of all kind 8D Those are fun to do and to read xD it's pretty much the only thing I'm doing at my journal *bricked*
Anyway, looking forward to reading more of your entries 8DD
partybat on November 27th, 2010 06:07 am (UTC)
*huggles~* >v<

Gah, I love pixiv~ I used to have tooooons of fanart from there, but my harddrive got totaled by my roommate so I'm going to have to go back and resave all of that...at least it means getting to see all of the pretty arts again. ;v;

*is lazy too xD* I need to go out an buy some for people as well...when I do, I'll be sure to send you a message!

I love older music. 0A0 I just don't have much of it, haha. I just started to listening to stuff by Falco and I really like it~ I'm definitely going to have to check out the rest of their stuff, along with the others you listed --- I officially trust your taste in music. xD Especially with the fact that you listed Nightwish and Within Temptation hahaha. I'm listening to the Gintama ending Kelun did...I like the singer's voice. @A@ Bah, we have such similar tastes~ Definitely be sure to let me know --- trust me, I listen to just about everything as well. Heck, I listen to stuff as different as Chopin, Metric, and Killswitch Engage. ;;

I'm definitely going to start doing stuff like that. xD I guess I've been hesitant to do that because I've been conditioned not to do so after being on deviantart for so many years...I'm hoping that this can become my "do stuff for the heck of it, let loose" place hurhur~
auburn_leaves on December 3rd, 2010 02:05 pm (UTC)
Once again sorry for the late reply ;w;

Wow, that's cool xDD <3333 *is touched for some reason* But yeah, I also listen to all kinds of music - as long as I like a song, it doesn't matter what genre it is xD Though my love for older music must come from my parents xD I'll be sure to send you a PM if I come up with some other bands ;3
Here's the link to where you can find all of Kelun's songs so far ^^ http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php?t=93585&page=1 I hope you'll enjoy <3333 I'm pretty much addicted to it right now, lol >w<

Yessss, don't hesitate to let loose here 8DDD I'm sure everyone here just love random entries xDD /o/ I know I do >w< and nothing can be worse than me finding a way to fangirl about Sugita no matter what I'm writing about, haha ^^;;; *bricked*
partybat on December 9th, 2010 02:02 am (UTC)
No problem no problem~~~ ;v;

Hehehe awww. ;v; Exactly. There's always something for someone in every genre. The type shouldn't matter as long as you enjoy it~ I'm the same way with older music --- my mom has played a lot of old stuff since I was little so I've become accustomed and, in a a way, addicted to it. Definitely do!! ;3; Your taste in music is amaaazing and I'm always looking for new stuff <3
nalksnfajsfnthankyou ;A; I'm going to have so much new music~~ And I will be forever happy huhuhu. I can understand why you'd be addicted --- they're really good!!

*snort* I'll be sure to do so! I need someplace to rant and dork out. xD I've noticed lol. But it's not bad and it's entertaining to see what you can connect to him hurhur. Aaaand I'm pretty sure I'll be doing similar stuff once I get used to writing on here. ;vvvv;

LJ lead me to this post of yours while doing a Quinrose search. I know I've seen you around the Heart no Kuni no Alice community, and you sometimes come by my LJ.

Anyway, you're looking for Alice manga and anthologies right? I've got some stuff that isn't available to the public on my LJ. If you don't mind raws then just let me know if you want to join my custom friends group. I've seen you on MNR and the mangafox forums and you've been good about not spreading any of my links around from the Alice chapters, so I trust you'll do fine if you want to see the other stuff too. I also like when people talk about what they thought of chapters and stuff, and you seem to do that. It's fun talking with fellow fans!
partybat on November 29th, 2010 08:21 pm (UTC)
Waaah. That would be amazing! T-thank you! I've been wanting to discuss anthology stuff with people, but it seems like very few people have actually gotten or read any of them. I'm planning to scan some of mine when they arrive, so if you don't have any of them I'd be glad to share some of those here.

You can trust me when I say I don't like spreading that sort of stuff to others --- it's made me sick to see the attitudes of leechers and those who do pass things around. I hadn't noticed before how bad it really is...it makes me that much more appreciative of groups of fans like this that help each other out and don't demand anything in return. *sigh*
harroe on November 29th, 2010 09:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, most people have only read the official manga. I wish the anthologies and official Clover doujinshi were translated too. I don't care if TokyoPop does it or not, as long as they get translated. If you're scanning some I'd definitely take a look. The stuff I have is released by chapter because it takes so long to scan a whole book. I'll be releasing more soon since I've got a lot of spare time in the winter.

The mentality of leechers never ceases to amaze me. I've been having some struggles recently with my raw chp. 35 getting around, even though I've warned people that I don't want them sharing my links or re-uploading my files. Are they trying to get me in trouble?! All I can figure is that they don't care, or they really don't understand how deeply their actions can affect people. Thankfully the people I've spoken with have been reasonable. Often if I keep my cool, so will the other person.

Anyway, I've added you to the custom friends group so you should have access to everything I have.
partybat on November 30th, 2010 03:15 am (UTC)
It really is a shame they aren't translated --- they're so much more interesting than the official manga. *and they don't butcher all of the characters haha* I actually have some scans of "Prospect is often better than possession" if you haven't seen that already. The only other one I have to scan right now is the Ace manga, but I think I saw that you already have that soooo~~ I'll be getting "Easier said than done" and "Every bird likes its own nest best", along with the new Elliot manga, in the mail sometime soon if you haven't seen any of those yet.

It's ridiculous! I've seen so many repostings it's ridiculous. What makes matters worse is that they seem to magically not notice your bright red "DO NOT REPOST" message. And not only that, they argue that "it's on the internet, so it's everyone's for the taking". I'm honestly hoping it's an age thing and that they're young un's who haven't learned internet etiquette just yet. I'm thinking this may be the case, considering the average age of the english-speaking HnK fanbase. ;;

T-thank you so much~ *bow bow* I took a peek and you have uploaded so much stuff! I can definitely see why you'd want your posts to be protected.
harroe on November 30th, 2010 03:37 am (UTC)
Aside from the Ace manga, I don't have any of the other ones you mentioned. I've been wanting to get "Live and Let Live" along with "Easier Said Than Done" for a while now. Every time I try, Quinrose comes out with all these limited offers that I have to get while they're available. Where is all the money going?!

Oh, I'd love to see the "Prospect is Often Better Than Possession" scans. Do you have them on your journal, or do I need a link?

That's why my chp.35 post has been changed to members only on the HnKnA community, and is now password protected. Now if people want it they have to jump through hoops. I hate doing that, but I don't want to have this stuff spread around so much that I end up getting caught and having to remove it. That's not fair to the other fans that wanted to read it. And yeah, I assume most of the people with that negative attitude are probably kids that don't know anything about real life. It's the only way to remain calm, so I hope I'm right. But honestly, those kids piss off everyone who is willing to do them a favor. That's why all my other uploaded goodies remain hidden from them. If I end up having to remove my raw scans of the official manga, there will still be an english translation eventually. That is the only reason I made it more readily available. It's disappointing though that I have to be so careful about who I share my stuff with. I mean, I'm a fan too. I know how everyone else feels. There are probably a lot of decent people I don't know about who can't see this stuff because it's too hard to sift through everyone.

partybat on December 2nd, 2010 05:32 am (UTC)
I know exactly how you feel! I've been planning to buy more anthologies, but Quinrose keeps releasing more stuff! Like the new Nightmare manga (a Joker setting? Yessss~) and the Mafia manga.....bahhhhquinrosestoppitineedmoney.

I can go ahead and PM the link and password to you! ovo I've been keeping my stuff private as well hahaha.

I'ev started to do stuff like that as well, after seeing what happened to all of your scans. People have been asking me to give them scans or CGs...but it's difficult to tell who genuinely just wants them to look at or who will redistribute them or the links to others. It's really sad that fans can't all just learn to be thankful to other fans who provide stuff to them. I mean, heck, look at what happened to the HnK scanlations --- the fans all wanted sans -NOW-, and didn't appreciate the fact that people were scanning, cleaning, translating, and typesetting every single page of the manga that they read. Demand, demand, demand....it's all they seem to know to do now. That's why I tend to stay away from the mangafox forums for he most part now, besides the -obvious- game-fans threads...it seems like those who have played are the more sane, logic ones of the fandom. *sigh*
harroe on December 2nd, 2010 09:01 pm (UTC)
Private is the way to go it seems. Sometimes I think it would be cool to make an 'invitation only', post locked community. That way people could post all their stuff to share without worrying about it being spread all over, but those never work out. Eventually someone will be let in who breaks the rules. And it also looks snobby to all the decent people that never get an invitation.

Nothing on the internet is a secret...
partybat on December 6th, 2010 05:39 am (UTC)
Definitely. Again, it's the whole "the few ruin things for the many" idea, just a bit more contained. If only people on the internet had a bit more decency, it wouldn't come to stuff like that in the first place. And then good fans who just want to join in wouldn't be shut out etcetcetc. And it's only getting worse as the general internet populace becomes younger and younger and more immature as time passes. Those of us who find welcome, helpful, caring fans just have to cling to each other at this point. ;;
