Alright, I know I’m rather late to the party so to speak, but episode 18/19 of YGO 5Ds poises some very interesting questions for me, all involving the spirit world of course.

Mostly, where were Johan and Juudai during all of this? Since Ushio is present (and Word of God confirms that) it can’t be that far into the future that they’re not around anymore and if something was happening to the Spirit World surely at least one of them would have noticed; especially if it were happening for a while as it evidently was. Clearly, I need to see more 5Ds so that I may plot properly, and now that I have a way to download more than eight episodes of anything a month I finally can. ^^ But the point of this mini tangent is that I foresee some fanfiction stemming from this but it might be a good idea to learn some more about Rua’s Spirit World first before I dive in. Clearly Johan and Juudai were doing something during this time, and it may be that for some reason they couldn’t interfere, something about the five dragons stopping them and relying instead on the Signers. Or some other interference or rule of some kind. However I am certain they would have noticed <i>something</i> and that is something I will certainly look into in the future. Also Rua using Sunlight Unicorn did nothing to stop me wondering about Johan an the Gem Beasts, Sapphire Pegasus in particular. But that’s my Johan bias shinning through as Juudai’s Herald powers as just as likely to detect an anomaly.

I love all the Alternate and Spirit world stuff. It’s brilliant and I can’t wait to see more of it! Ah YGO, you never let me down do you. ^^


Ok, now that I have my 5Ds ramble out of the way, Speaky, I know I promised you a fic and I know I said it should be here before uni, which I have now started again. That was certainly the plan but I was sick pretty much all of last week and while that may work to my advantage it didn’t speed the process up. ^^; I’m really sorry and I really need to get my lazy butt into gear but now that I am at uni the bunnies will probably hit again as they hate to be convenient. And it is the weekend now so I really have no excuse besides work...
My drabble will also be up soon yllimilly. And it shouldn't be a problem either, I think I've hung around the Pairing Comp long enough to be able to pull it off. ^^ Hopefully vaguely in cannon too, but that's my defult setting anyway.


Speaking of uni my geo lectures are going to be super special awesome this semester, not just super awesome. Why? Well besides it being geo, which is awesome in itself, I noticed today that my lecturer has an accent. Well I noticed it in the first one but today it hit me what it was. It’s Daitokuji-sensei’s dub voice, well Professor Banner. That’s right, Banner is pretty much teaching me geo. It is amazing I must say. I can see where alchemy and geology vaguely connect too, if you twist your head an squint. But it’s good enough for me. ^^ There are times where the accent really shines through too an I can Banner clear as day, I’m going to have to find a plushy Pharaoh now, just in case. ^_~

Looks like Fluffy, our pet dinosaur from last year is going to be replaced. But that’s alright as Fluffy belonged to one of my friends who isn’t doing geo anymore. She’s a bio major anyway but I love the fact that her mascot is a dinosaur while my geo one is a ‘living’ cat. ^^

And as a little side note, my laptop seems to have taken a violent dislike to the 'd' button and it really needs to be encouraged for it to work. I have read through this but if any 'd's are missing, or a word looks out of place ue to a missing one I apologise. But that's why it's missing. Really, whenever you encouter one abouve you can almost be sure it was issing the first time. ^^;
It should pass,it was 'q' before but now my laptop and it seem to be friends again. I hope it makes up with 'd' soon, I use that a lot more.

Eheheh, this fic is obviously proving quite difficult for you to write. If you want to drop it that's okay with me. I was really looking forward to it, but I don't want it to be like pulling teeth for you. I know sometimes certain things are just really difficult to write for whatever reason. Life gets in the way and inspiration doesn't always bite. I'm sorry you got sick, and I hope uni goes well for you! ♥ Anyway yeah, if you do finish I'll be thrilled of course, but don't feel like you absolutely must. ^^;; *kind of feels like a jerk now*

With the keyboard thing, that usually means that the key itself is sticking out in some odd way, possibly because there's something stuck under it. That happened a lot with random keys on my old laptop, in no small part because of my cats getting their fur stuck in the keys. Does the D key feel like it's stuck, or does it go down fine and just not register? Well, hopefully it'll work again.

Also, I need to see 5ds. I am halfway through DM now, my plan is to start on 5Ds when I'm done. Augh, and now a new one is going to come out! I am so behind. XD;;

Oh it's not all that diffucult anymore, I sorted thorugh tha. The main problem now is the lack of time and how tired I've been lately. Actually, that's why I haven't been all too active lately. ^^; Thanks body,thanks a whole lot. Anyway, all it needs now is some fixing up now and as soon as my keyboard loves me again (ah uni library, how I love you) so don't feel bad. If anyone should it should be me but IT WILL BE FINISHED! If anything I want to see it done too. Though I am sorry it's taking so long!

Mmm, that is very possible, in fact given how raised it is I'm certain there are things stuck there. The problem now is removing the small things trapped there. -_-;

I know how you feel. I want to be on top of 5Ds before the new one comes out but I doubt that will happen. So now I want to catch up so I can watch the movie. It kills me to have the link for it and not be watching it but I do want to finish the arc first so it will be worth it in the end.
It will also be exciting to watch the new series along with everyone for the first time. GX and 5Ds I was obviously late for and DM is a different anyway so this one should be good.

Well, I'm glad you're not finding it horribly difficult anymore! I didn't want this to be so troublesome for you. I really appreciate all the effort. ♥ I'm sure the end result will be amazing, and it's completely fine that it's taking the time it's's not like you're obligated to write fic for me, and it's very sweet of you to want to do it. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it, and I'm glad it's still in progress. ♥ Thank you so much.

My advice about the key--either use something small, like a paper clip or a pen, to try and dislodge whatever's stuck there. Don't push too hard because you could end up pulling off the depends on how much space there is beneath the key, really. You can feel it out. Also, you can use one of those air horn things that you buy in computer shops to clean out the keyboard. Those work nicely. Failing that, you can press down hard on the key, which might jam it back into place and get it working again. This happened all the time with my old laptop, so I was always having to do things like this.

Yeah, I want to be on top of it too, but I haven't even started yet and I'm on...episode 146 of DM. I don't see myself finishing up any time soon, since I'm watching with my sister and so we can only watch it when we both have time. It's hard to find said time. I do want to see the movie though, it'll be okay to do so once I've seen even one episode of 5Ds. And I want to see Zexal even though it looks not-promising. If I've learned anything from Yu-Gi-Oh it's that things that look shitty and dumb to me at first glance oftentimes end up being excellent. XD;

You say you have a link to see the movie? Any chance you could share it? I meant to see it in theaters but the only weekend it was out ended up being super-busy, and anyway I hadn't seen ANY 5Ds at that point. Still haven't, but if I have a link I can watch at my leisure.

Yes, hopefully I'll be able to this weekend but I will take my laptop to uni over the next few days so I can work on it then. I hope you like it. ^^

Luckily, or really unluckily, my keyboard has quite big gaps between the keys and they are kind of, elevated, so it's easy for things to get inside. Especially when I sit outside as I have been as the weather has been so nice and I generally like being outside anyway.

DM can be long at times though. Especially some of the duels. ^^; (Kaiba and Yugi's tag duel tha went ffor four or so episodes comes to mind. I liked it in the manga, but the anime version of that drags on will admit.) What season are you up too? I only good with the GX numbers. ^^; And I agree with you on Zeaxl and the statment on YGO as a whole. Cards games on motercycles? Though I am curious to find out how they'll top that.
And I understand about the time. I'm still only up too ep 22 of 5Ds. I guess it's just not as compelling as GX was. I watched that rather quickly.

Yes, Rhodanum posted it a while back, and she got it from Aphotic. I've only seen the first 30 seconds and already the quality was dodgy but it's better then nothing. And I'm sorry you missed out on seeing it! It's one thing to have no hope of getting to it, but another to have the opertunity and not be able too.
Although, the wonderful Anime club at uni has solved hat problem for me. I asked very nicely and they said once it's out on DVD they screen it at the uni cinema. XD Huzzah! Although I will have seen it by then I'm sure.

Okay, fantastic. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm sure it'll be excellent, and I really appreciate all your efforts.

DM can be rather long. Some duels are pointless, and others have a point but go on way, way too long. I haven't read the manga yet, and I'm told it isn't as draggy, but the anime definitely gets that way. There have been episodes that I only sort-of watched and instead focused on bitching with my sister about the low art quality or the pointlessness of the duel or about some random character analysis or whatever. Other episodes are so amazing you can't look away. DM is really a mixed bag. Anyway, I've just started the Doma Oreikhalkos arc...which so far seems to be about going to the Digital World to fight the eye of Sauron. XD; But I've only just started it, I'm sure it'll all come together in the end somehow.

I have seen absolutely no 5Ds. I keep meaning to, I've heard good things, but I hardly have time to watch DM, and that's my YGO-related priority for the moment. I don't know enough about it to know whether or not I'd find it compelling. I'm still not sure why I love GX so much. DM is great in many ways, but I feel like GX was more consistently high-quality...they used the same art team the whole time instead of switching from amazing art to shit art within the same episode. Oh, and there's the characters. I love almost everyone in GX, and I'm hard-pressed to name a character I truly LOVE in DM. 5Ds I don't know. We'll see!

Yeah it was a little frustrating, but it was okay. I did other things that weekend, I was mostly busy with my friend's birthday, and also doing some things to secure my new job. Thank you very much for the link, I'll definitely watch it once I've seen an episode or so of 5Ds.

I don't mean to be a nag, but since you did say it was more or less done, I was wondering if the fic is still in progress? ^^; If you feel like you won't be able to finish, I'd love to just see what you've got so far. Or something. Sorry, it's just you've brought it up so many times, I'm really curious about it now.
