So. :|a

I reacted, let us say, Not Well to the Zoro section of OP 597, and it's only been through much ranting to [livejournal.com profile] whiteadelphi and soul-searching and awesome conversation that I've been mostly reconciled to it. Not entirely! There remain issues, but at least I'm not making lineface every time I think about it, now. Instead of reiterating, I'm just going to link to the post WA made that contains basically our whole IM conversation on the topic.

To clarify before we even start, my problem wasn't at all to do with the plain fact that Zoro asked Mihawk to train him and humbled himself terribly in the process. In fact, that hardly comes up in our massive combined tl;dr AIM conversation, and I'm surprised that a lot of people seem to have issues with it. Not like he hasn't shown that he'll sacrifice his dream for Luffy at this point, after all. And yeah, it's painful and shaming and he had to throw away his pride to do it, and he doesn't care, he'll get on his hands and knees and press his forehead to the floor and hold there, bleeding all over Mihawk's carpet until the man agrees to train him, and then look so thrilled and happy when he finally does (>.> socute). I thought that was awesome, actually, it hammers in just how far he'll go—he won't just die to protect Luffy and his dream and the rest of his crew, he'll humiliate himself in front of his ultimate rival and live and get stronger in order to better support him, too.

...Which is the thought which sparks my ACTUAL problem. >_____> So here are the links.

Links and more stuff under the cut )

Edit: Now with links actually added, derp.

Sneaking online at lunchtime to throw up this quick post of character notes for an AU event at [livejournal.com profile] luceti. This is a bit incoherent and sketchy and mostly for my rp buddies, but anyone's welcome to say what they think!

So I'm going with genderbending for this AU. Girl!Zoro is from a universe where the Straw Hats (and possibly some other people) are and always have been the opposite sex. Key persons such as Gold Roger and Hawk-eyes Mihawk are not switched. Neither, I've decided, is anyone else in Zoro's background. Her sensei is still a man, and her rival and sensei's daughter Kuina was still that—a daughter.

The following is an insanely long ZoSan meme for the [livejournal.com profile] zosan community which I couldn't resist tl;dr-ing in. :)a So if you're on my flist and don't like the pairing, just skip this~

Hi to all my new friends from the One Piece friending meme, HI HI~! [waves] Glad to have you all!

Sooo, I've been working on a reaction post to One Piece 592, but I keep getting stuck on the Zoro section and fall permanently into setting: FLAAAAAIL. >.> So we'll see when I get that up. IN THE MEANTIME, I stole this meme from [livejournal.com profile] featheredtips . :Db It's one of those "name twelve characters and answer questions based on the numbers you assigned them" dealies, and I had possibly-illegal amounts of fun with it. \o/

Be warned that in places this does have distinct shadings of my shipping preferences in it. :)b

Twelve Characters I Love

1. Zoro
2. Ace
3. Luffy
4. Shanks
5. Nami
6. Mihawk
7. Sanji
8. Kaku
9. Robin
10. Usopp
11. Brook
12. Law

Thiiis was soooo much fuuuuun. XDDDD Sorry for inflicting it on all of you~

This is just—a bit of something silly and experimental I've been doing off-and-on for fun. XD Playing around on my own with Zoro's voice and point of view, coming up with silly mini-adventures in the One Piece world whenever the heck something comes to me, etc. I've got an idea for a fic swirling around that will eventually—that is, could eventually—incorporate a lot of what I've been scribbling so far, but we'll see. :)a

Something for fooling around with in spare minutes...

Vil—while on exams hiatus!—drew a short MallowMateys Straw Hat doujin featuring Michiko and Zoro that I've been meaning to flail about for days. I will also take this opportunity to flail about Zoro+Michiko in general, as a warning, haha.

I got permission to post the doujin here, too, in order to better facilitate flailing. And also so I can just have it on here forever. :D It's read right-to-left, Japanese-style. (...Vil is the person who plays Michiko, btw, haha)

Nothing interesting here, just me talking to myself, move along. >.> )

It was raining while sunny again today. I would've been more appreciative of the effect if I'd remembered to bring my umbrella with me, but, y'know. Sunshine. The thought, it did not occur.

Which reminds me, I wanted to make a weather-and-natural-phenomena-related list.

zhadrani: (leave a message)
*bangs head against wall* Oh. God. I. Hate. Writing. Apps. NNnnghhhfjg. Why do I fail so hard, ffffff.

And also *flails wildly* I went to watch my favorite Zoro AMV for inspiration, and it was taken down from Youtube for copyright violation or something! D: OTL!! Luckily, after panicking for a while I managed to find it on Tudou, but I can't figure out how to embed that here and it's lower quality, so I'm just putting up a link.  Hopefully the creator will put it up again somewhere in HQ. Anyway, watching it still broke my little Zoro-loving heart all over again, I ♥ it so. Here we go!

A Lost Dream, by Seren278.

ETA: Okay, that's it, I can't fiddle with it anymore, I'm gonna post it now. *writhes at how horrible it is* Oh god, so long and rambly and incoherent and badly organized and I don't talk about nakama relations enough and I'm sure I forgot ten different things I should've mentioned and left in twelve other things I should've cut out, but holy shmoo I'm tired and I've read it too many times and fksdkfj. ...Yeah, I'm done.

ETA2: ...Oh. That's...just great. ... ... ... ...Frick.
zhadrani: (AGH OH NO Shanks)
So. I've said a few times in the past that I didn't know if I'd keep reading OP after Ace's death. And I still haven't read that chapter, nor do I ever anticipate doing so. Thinking about Ace being dead still makes me feel sick to my stomach and my heart hurt, so. I just avoid thinking about it.

That said, I've found myself continuing to read. Because as much as I still love Ace, there are other people in One Piece whose fates I'm pretty damn invested in as well. People who we haven't seen in a while, and whom I yearn to see again, as well as people who are on the battlefield right now, fighting for their lives. Not to mention the mysteries whose answers are being dangled before us.

So. Onto this week's chapter.

Character Expression Icon Meme )

Man, that was harder than I thought it would be, XD. So many expressive icons to love~! ...I wish I had another hundred spaces to use. u_u Also, nothing I do seems to get rid of that damn white space above the icon table. >:\

On a slightly different note.

zhadrani: (zoro+sanji || yeah we're fucking badass)

Wow, I haven't put anything up here in a while. Anyway, here are some RP memes that I've seen around everywhere, because my online life basically consists of RP these days. I always, ALWAYS tl;dr on memes, so this is insanely long, but it was fun to do, a great procrastination tool at 2:00 AM last night, and hopefully it's at least a little interesting to someone, so uh. Yeah, sorry, haha.

I walked home from class in the rain and cold today. Most of the sky—certainly the part dripping sullenly on me—was ash gray, with charcoal whorls that seemed inclined to just sit in place; heavy, unmoving, implacable. But off to the west, the clouds abruptly lightened and faded in trailing white tails, leaving much of the sky visible from beneath my black umbrella a pure, arching blue.

It was beautiful. :)

Of course, my enchantment with it might have had something to do with the fact that I'd not seen blue sky in three or four days, which is downright traumatic for a born and bred southern Californian. Especially when one is still in California, albeit the northern half.

...Now, in return for tolerating my rambling, have a little Ace drabble. :D

Ah, thank you so much for the gift, [livejournal.com profile] fashi0n_mistake!!

...I just typed out this HUUUUGE, point by point reaction post to One Piece Chapter 0, and this week's White Collar, and Glee, and then accidentally went to another page and it was GONE. X_____X. ASKJL;LDK.

I'm not doing that all over again, DAMMITALL, SO. Highlights.

They're very short, though! :D Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] one_piece, because this one got too long, >_>. Crap, does this mean this is a 'verse, now? Probably too short for that, but...Nuisance-verse, I guess?

It was only understandable, after that whole hellish mess. )
