Miscellaneous is a fun word

It makes me think of people misusing cellophane.

Work has been kicking my ass lately, so my presence online has been both sporadic and fleeting (and mostly related to geeking out about every little tidbit to come out regarding Theatrhythm.)  But I've been super-busy!  Somehow kinda finished my SMASH! cosplay on the weekend (just in time! Though it's a little unpolished still), realised it won't fit in the little suitcase so have to drag out the big one.  :(  I need to stop making things involving helmets, apparently.

And managed to see Kung Fu Panda 2 on the weekend, which was awesome, and also the new Dr Zhivago musical!  Anthony Warlow was unfortunately sick for the performance I attended, but his stand-in still gave quite a good performance.  Really liked the music, but then, I do love the tragic dark ballads and the russian war choruses, it appealed very directly to my tastes.  And the set was amazing!  Kind of weak ending, but that's probably more the story's fault than anything...
Oh!  And this is quite late, but carzla on ff.net wrote a mini-sequel for The Fifth Act called Visitations, where Vincent takes Sephiroth to meet Lucrecia.  It was quite good!  I recommend giving it a read.

Along the lines of recs, lately my fanfic attention has been entirely captured by this amazing Harry Potter fic World In Pieces by Lomonaaeren. It's wonderfully written, quite dark, and is managing to scratch all of my alternate dimension travelling itches at once.  It's gen (though mentions past Harry/Draco relationship in the new dimension), featuring a mentor Snape, has great characterisation, and it's pretty much all of my favourite things in a Harry Potter fanfic.  Everyone should read it.
My own fiction efforts have become highly schizophrenic lately, where I am trying to work on five different longfic all at the same time.  That's even after throwing two out.  :|

And lastly, this.

Sometimes it feels like a joke was written just for you.  This is one of those times.  (Laughed especially hard at the alt text, because, so true.)

Dr Zhivago with Anthony Warlow? Sounds good =3

Will check out the rec, it's been awhile since I read Harry Potter fic.

It's definitely worth seeing! Maybe it'll make it over to Singapore, or you'll be able to catch it when you visit sometime? I haven't heard anything about a cast recording yet... :(

Hope you enjoy it! Might be a good appetiser for the last movie.

...I searched all over for the HP fic you rec'd before realising that you had a link for it. And a note, of interest, it would not pop up in any searches (even on ff.net), and a Google search for it just brought me back to this journal entry.

I will so suck at the FF game. I'm completely hopeless w/ rhythm games. T_T I completely sucked ass in the Little Mermaid world in KH2. D:

Ahaha, turns out I misspelled the author's pen name, that may have been the source of your troubles (I had all the right letters, just jumbled up). *facepalm* Why I shouldn't update when horribly sleep-deprived I guess.

I'm sure they'll have an easy mode! Square is pretty good at having options for people who just want to play through for the art and story.

lol so we're both a little fail then. <3

But I don't want easy mode b/c then I won't get to unlock special endings if there are any! Plus, I always feel slightly ashamed when I play something in easy mode, even if I'm the only person who actually knows that I'm doing it. lol

jhgsdjhaskd OH THAT AUTHOR ♥ I've been reading some of her works! Only the ones with a smaller number of chapters, though. Can't fit the longer ones into the short period of time that school and sleep does not occupy. ):

She's quite excellent, isn't she? *__* And amazingly prolific. I've read a couple of her gen and Snape/Harry ones too and they were all fantastic (if only I could bring myself to like Harry/Draco!)

Even my Sebastian costume wouldn't go in my "little" suitcase-- and it's just basically a tux. I get out a garment bag for most of my cosplay!

Ooh, a good review for Kung Fu Panda 2! Yay! I haven't heard any yet, and coming from a lapsed assistant karate instructor who LOVED the first (and Secrets of the Furious Five), that is fabulous news.

I definitely empathize on the schizophrenic fic writing problem-- I've been known to have over twelve going at once, and then not finish any of them.

Surprising, isn't it? I could understand if props were involved, but even just a suit-!

Yes indeed, if you liked the first Kung Fu panda you must definitely see this one. It's very cliche, but the good kind of cliche, like all great martial arts films.

Twelve! :O

[Dante says, "HI GENESIS" :D]
It's true. Like I said, I get out a garment bag for all my costumes now-- though I didn't have to with Cloud, because that was comfy enough to keep on all the way home too.

Yay~! That makes me really happy. (And if you like slightly-cliche-but-awesome martial arts films, go watch The Forbidden Kingdom. It's awesome. I saw it with an ex, and he bought it for me for my next birthday... and now I'll never date another guy... lol.)

Yup, twelve... I have something like 36 unfinished fanfictions that I haven't touched in a year or so. I'm terrible with keeping on schedule, I swear my muse Ailill is ADD. (Or, more likely, ADHD; he also keeps me up at all hours saying "WRITE THIS NOW OR YOU'LL FORGET IT BY MORNING".)
This is why I only ever write short-ish fics.

I haven't actually finished the books myself, either. ^_^; Only read the first five, but thanks to fanfiction, ehehe.....

Haha, I'm sure I'll be posting soon (tonight, hopefully!) And, urgh, I really do need to hop on chat sometime, sorry!
