I'm bored and haven't updated in a while, so I decided to post a few thoughts on random cartoons. As you might've noticed, I have a soft spot for all animation, whether it be anime, CGI, or just cartoons in general... (Be forewarned, I do get rather ranty in these.)

Rivalries in Pokemon Black & White )

Women in G.I. Joes: Renegades )

( My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic )

I have to admit it, I watched the new MLP to see what the fuss was a all about. Of course, the first episode I watched had ponies having slumber parties and makeovers, which was enough to make me want to change the channel after 30 seconds. ;P

But I gave it a second chance, and I must say, it is a refreshing change to see female cartoon characters who are female AND characters. (My favourite ponies? Applejack, Rarity and Fluttershy. ;D) Oh, and Twilight Sparkle reminds me a bit of FE8's Lute...

Having posted my FE Contest entry, I'm now stuck in one of stages I'm usually in after writing something...

Avi's 3 stages of post-writing )

So I'm currently at Stage 2, self-loathing. XP Oddly enough, I still feel like writing at the moment, but nothing Fire Emblem-related (except maybe the Mary Sue challenge, and that isn't due for a while).

Story ideas: Dragon Age, Pokemon, Total Drama )

On the subject of Canadian fandoms, I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World a couple of weeks ago. A movie filmed in Toronto that's also set in Toronto? Yeah baby! (I didn't even realize that the movie was based on a Canadian comic, until later... So out of touch with my home country since I moved to the US, sigh.)

Very mild spoilers for Scott Pilgrim )

So yeah, I would recommend Scott Pilgrim to any video gamer, but you would have to keep in mind that the movie is indeed an odd mix of half indy-teen-romantic-comedy, and half video game hijinx. Still enjoyable, for what it's worth. ;)

...when this is what comes to mind when the cat jumps up on the counter when it's not supposed to:

A wild TYLOR appeared!

AVI used Water Gun.

It's super effective!

TYLOR fled the battle.

(For the record, I didn't actually squirt the cat; the noise from pulling out the water sprayer out of the sink is usually enough to scare him off. :P)

On a related topic, am I crazy in thinking that Lyra's design was sort of inspired by Strawberry Shortcake? >.> (Seriously, that hat... And now I kind of want to find a Skitty and name it Custard. ;P)

*watches new Pokemon anime opening* Wow, looks like Conway might (keyword: might) end up battling in the Sinnoh League championships? O_o Apparently, I wasn't aware how popular Conway was... And here I thought I was weird for liking him.

I haven't liked a Pokemon character this much in like... Ever. Well, I liked James well enough, but he's gotten a little more emo in the recent series (don't get me wrong, I like sensitive James, but I miss flaming gay silly crossdressing James as well ;). And I do like Conway a lot, despite the whole creepy underwater stalker moment (which almost crossed the line for me, but it only happened once, so I'm willing to ignore it XP).

Now I'm beginning to worry about my affinity for nerdy, stalkerish characters *cough*Lute*cough*... It probably says something about my own personality, as well. :P

On another Pokemon-related note, I have a sudden urge to look for Roark/Riley slash... Gah. -_-;

I wrote Pokemon fanfic. (That came out of nowhere, huh? ;)

I think I've mentioned before that I have a soft spot for Conway (although in the Pokemon Summer Academy episodes, he did get a little too "OMG creepy stalker" for my taste). Still, I could see him reasoning out why he would follow Dawn around so much... Hence, this 'fic.

So here's some Onesided!Conway/Dawn (or HeatTagShipping - dang weird Pokemon shipping names). And yes, I have a glasses fetish, shut up...

Pokemon: Through Horn-Rimmed Glasses )
