Debating whether or not to re-watch Xiaolin Showdown- one of the best shows from my childhood.
I got lucky with my most recent cartoon re-watch, Sym-Bionic Titan, because it turned out I loved it even more now.
Dunno if Xiaolin Showdown would hold up though. As I've gotten older I might not like it anymore.

My crusade this whole year so far has been to change myself.
So far I've
-Gotten a new piercing (cartilage of left ear).
-Started dressing more like I want to.
-Made efforts to talk to people and not just speak sarcasm and movie quotes.
-Gotten used to the idea of having a career one day, in either music (*snort*) or social work. I've started studying social work and might be a camp counselor next summer.

'Aesthetics' are most definitely not my thing, okay? I don't devote time to making things pretty.
But...
There definitely is a metal aesthetic. It's different than punk or grunge, which are pretty cool themselves, but do you wanna know why I love the metal fashion/aesthetic (besides the fact it's part of the music scene I love)?
It's easy.
-grow your hair long and keep it long,
-paint your fingernails black (and not even all the time).
-have at least one piercing (I have two).
-wear band shirts.
-wear jeans.
-wear sneakers (I've only owned real Converse twice. The rip-offs will do just fine).
It's literally that easy, folks.

Started watching Static Shock last night. It's a cartoon from when I was younger and I'm sure I watched it at some point, but I don't remember it very well.

Good show with good art quality and a nice story. Superhero cartoons are finally starting to come back (Guardians of the Galaxy, Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble), so I'm watching a few classics like Static Shock, Spectacular Spider-Man, X-Men.
Might re-watch Teen Titans at some point but can't decide...

Writing update copied from my main journal. Next post will be the links you'll need.
All new readership is appreciated. Spread the word!

1st. New IICR chapters
These are the 'definitive' ones, I think. This is where everything is laid out in front of them, from both Matt and Ryan's perspectives, and everything gets decided. Staying or leaving, getting better or getting worse, they don't have any options but these... I'm excited. Revelations within families (ever wonder about Matt's father? You won't for long, because you're gonna meet him) and relationships (Eddie and Ty will soon be names you remember) are going to happen, shocking changes, feels.
Just... Feels.
God y'all are gonna hate me.

2nd. Dresdenverse one-shots.
Well, these are in temporary limbo. I might wait until I've read the next book in line, Changes, to finish them.
Kyraa's collection, Vitamin K, will be updated soon, though. Thomas's chapter is next.

3rd. The Rock Bottom series.
Rock Bottom is done and has been for months. Read it!
The second in the series, Power Chord, will be posted this week.
The third, High Note, is at an unknown status right now. I know what will happen, but I can't write actions in stories without cussing and starting over at least twice, so I don't know what to say about High Note or One Hit Wonder (the fourth in the series) as of right now.

4th The unnamed series featuring ftm transgender leads has been completed at two one-shots.

5th The DeviantArt Chronicles has been completed after five one-shots.

6th. Soldiers of Misfortune is being updated as we speak. Next chapter posted ASAP.

Thanks to all who read my writing :) Means the world.
You guys ROCK <3

Favorite animes (so far. I only started watching again about two years ago):
Parasyte: The Maxim (favorite forever).
Black Lagoon.
Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Space Dandy (these three will always be tied. Eternally. Deal with it).
Dimension W.
One-Punch Man.

Some I don't *love*, but still recommend:
Akame Ga Kill.
Michiko and Hatchin <--- amazing art!
Hunter X Hunter <--- Good story and characters but I don't like the art. It could move to favorites eventually, though.
Mobile Suit: Gundam <--- Pure nostalgia.
Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans <--- Confusing but i still like it.

Gundam: IBO pros:
Art is cool. Not especially amazing, but they have a nice, post-00's comic book color pallet.
Voice acting is on point.
Banter is good.
Strong female presence used for more than fanservice.
Theme song (Raise Your Flag by I'm not sure who) is good.

Gundam: IBO cons:
Doesn't throw back to the source materiel (Mobile Suit: Gundam) very well. Confusing as hell for new watchers or people like me, who watched the source materiel once, but a very long time ago.
Awkward interaction with authoritarian characters. Orga doesn't seem to interact very well with his crew, and Cudelia (TOTALLY spelling that wrong...) could stand up for herself more, but doesn't really seem comfortable with it.
Mikasuki looks like Astro-boy.
^ Not a legitimate con, I know, but it takes away every shred of heroism he has and makes me think of a shirtless, black and white cartoon boy with rockets coming out of his feet. >.>

All in all, halfway in, I'm enjoying it. I'm rusty on the source materiel, so it's more like watching a new show for me.
Recommended for people who are already Mobile Suit: Gundam fans.

Do you like Voltron (80's or Netflix reboot, either one)?
You'd like Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans, MSG fan or not. Not the exact same concept, but they have similar casts and themes.

Gundam: IBO, 7 1/2 of 10.
