re: the latest Naruto chapter
Oh, WHATEVER. What. the fuck. ever. I might take a break from canon for a while and devote myself to writing awesome character studies about awesome people like Temari instead.
BUT I am finding it hard to maintain my disgust at stupid character retconning because of a lot of cool things, namely:
+ My prototype-Sakura outfit at the party last night went down well! Pink hair looks weirdly good on me; consequently, I am rethinking my dislike of the colour. Anyway, it was a great party and lots of hilarious pictures were taken of pirates fighting ninjas and ninjas posing with fans and pirates posing with pirate wenches etc. etc.
+ I am at hooooome! Having coffee with some friends this afternoon, going out to dinner with family tonight, generally pretending that I'm going to study but actually sitting around plotting fics and surfing LJ and obtaining TOTALLY AWESOME things like...
+ ...the first episode of the Sick Fish Avatar
podcast, which is a hilarious and intelligent and highly entertaining little show produced by -- among others -- the lovely rawles
. They talk about early S3 episodes and how adorable Aang is and delicious meta about character parallels and imperialism, and then Rawles RECS MY MAI FIC (<3!!) and provides a permanent public record of the fact that I promised her epic futurefic, which was a very sneaky way of ensuring that I could never, ever avoid writing it now. Anyway. sickfishpodcast
. It's definitely worth a listen.
