Musings on Anime Convention LARP


Though I've only done it twice, I found that I really enjoy it, when it's done well. From what I recconn, the group needs to be the right size (I'd cap groups off at 20 or so) and the system has to have the right mixture of seriousness and silliness to balance out.

 

Complaints and suggested repairsCollapse )
That doesn't address all the problems, but I think this is a good start--unless I'm overcomplicating things.

I do have that tendancy.

The Good things in life


Two fun things:

1) I made 40 dollars this weekend from finally turning in 15 years worth of Couch Change. Really!
2) Someone mentioned one of my fanfics in TVtrope's "Crowning Moment of Awesome: Fanfic."

No. Really. 
 

From the recently started fanfic Supernatural Taisen Anubis is bringing his fleet to Earth to conquer it, and makes his ultimatum to the President of the United States. Unfortunately for him, this fic is Super Robot Wars expanded beyond Humongous Mecha, and the sitting Commander-in-Chief is none other than David Xanatos:

Anubis: “I am Anubis,”
Xanatos “Sure you are.”
Anubis: “Are you the leader of this world?”
Xanatos: “For all intents and purposes, let us talk as though I were.”
Anubis: “Your leadership has come to an end. “Bow before your God, and I may grant you leniency.”
Xanatos (mentally removing plan b from consideration): “I’m a self-made billionaire who now leads the most powerful nation on the planet. Do you honestly think I’d accept handouts or being ranked second best?”
Anubis: “If you possessed weapons matching mine, you would have used them.”
Xanatos: “Despite our image, we know the meaning of restraint and patience.”
Anubis: “You will bring destruction upon yourselves.”
Xanatos: “In the last hundred years, we’ve been faced with 30 invasions like yours. What makes you think that yours will fare any differently from theirs?”
(Anubis' Hologram fades. Xanatos turns to Owen, who raises an eyebrow)
Xanatos: “Still, not as large of a ham as Sevarius.”

 
I feel so special now!

Super Natural Taisen


Title: Super Natural Taisen

Rating: PG-13

Fandom: Megacrossover. Told from the perspective of Stargate SG-1, but involves at least a dozen other series and several dozen more get commentary notes or cameo appearances. Think League of Extraordinary Gentlemen or Super Robot Wars (which is the direct inspiration for this).

Characters:  “Jack O’Neill is the PC for this game”

Disclaimer: This is me trying to write again. All references are to characters currently under copyright. The holder is not me.

Summary: After a hundred years of buildup, the world prepares for a massive Supernatural War. Alliances are made as the darkest of enemies rise to confront them.

Note: Because of the shared universe nature of the crossovers, and in homage to Super Robot Wars, the series actually have an effect on each other—in some cases, greatly. Sometimes, Everything You Know is Wrong (with comic book characters, it most certainly is). Other times, things remain rather the same, but please, assume nothing. Heck, I’m going to assume that no one knows anything about the series involved and go from there. The changes made are (usually) deliberate and serve a plot purpose, so please don’t complain about the changes unless you feel it threatens the very core of the concepts the series involves.

Political Stance


And yet, I'm pro-gun and think most democrats need the one thing I can say republican's have: a spine.

Now, if only republicans had a heart, brain and soul like they did before they were bought out by the Fundementalists.

You are a

Social Liberal
(70% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(28% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Democrat

The National Review tears Ben Stein a new Asshole

I've been annoyed at Ben Stein's latest pro-creationist piece of libel since it imposed draconian tacts wholey expected of a conservative christian institution back at its pre-screening.

Ignoring the fact that it commited fraud to get some of its footage.

The National Review (a rather Repubilcan leaning publication) put out a vitrolic article on the subject recently, bust I still find several Youtube videos more...entertaining.

That should tell you how bad the movie "Expelled" is. 

Hell, it has it's own site of innacuracies and frauds.
