So You Said You Were Coming Back From A Hiatus And Then You Didn’t Post Anything: An Autobiography

Heh heh. Remember when I made a big old post about how I was determined to start writing and posting more often, and then I didn’t make a post for a month? Woopsies daisies! I tend to do that a lot, huh. Well, in my defense, it’s been a bit of a messy month. Let me get on my knees and beg for forgiveness explain.

Welcome (Back) To Hell Zone!

Hi! I’m back, potentially, hopefully, possibly, maybe. It’s been a rough few months. Have I mentioned that in every single blog post I’ve made in the past few months? Probably.

Stuff has just been sucking. I haven’t really felt motivated to do…anything. The depression is here in full force, and even though I’ve wanted to write and wanted draw or study or do literally anything, I just haven’t been able to. There’s been some severe executive dysfunction lately. Like, I’ll get home from work and I won’t even have the energy to dedicate to watching anime or playing a video game. I just flip through things on my phone for hours until I fall asleep.

Create-A-Story Tag: Flex Your Creative Muscles, Y’all!

Here I am, a little late to the party, with my Create-A-Story tag. There was a time limit on this but I think I passed it…not because I spent time overthinking, but just because I’ve been a bit unplugged lately. I’ve been busy trying to look into apartments and shtuff, so blogging took a little back seat. But now, I’m ready to write!

I’m really happy to have been nominated by the lovely Keiko, whose short story was really, really good. She did the tanka anime tag, too, and those turned out just well, so check those out while you’re at it!

The T.A.P. Tag – Come Read My Fancy Anime Poetry, and Then Write Some Yourself!

The Luminous Mongoose came up with a really neat idea for a tag – it’s the tanka tag! It’s a really unique way to flex your creative poetry muscles, and gives everyone a great excuse to recommend their favorite anime, too. Thank you so much for tagging me in the first round, and make sure you all check out his poems – they’re really quite beautiful (and quite intimidating …I don’t know if I can match them!!).

Rules of the tag:

  1. Headline your post with “The T.A.P. Tag!” and put “tanka” as one of your tags.
  2. Make sure to link back to the original post that started the tag (this post!).
  3. Make sure to mention the person who forced introduced the tag to you!
  4. Pick 1-3 of your favorite anime.
  5. Write your tanka about the anime you’ve chosen. It’s fine if you decide to do only one or two if the schedule is tight.
  6. Tag at least 3 or more bloggers you know, and get their creative muscles flowing.

Build A Harem Tag: My beautiful harem of angry anime girls

I’ve returned, refreshed and renewed! The two weeks off from blogging was nice – I wrote a bit while I was away anyways, but it felt nice to be free from arbitrary deadlines and worrying about stats. I spent some time with friends, caught up with some things on the home-front, and now I’m good to go! I even have a little backlog of posts queued up, so that I can have more wiggle room to relax. Yay!

So the first thing on the menu was to finally do this harem tag that Cactus Matt came up with! Thank you for the tag! I’ve seen quite a few other people do this, too, and the results have all been really fun. Matt’s harem was top-tier, so there’s a ton of totally no pressure to come up with a good harem.

Here are the rules!

The ‘Build A Harem’ Tag Rules:

  1. Link back to the original post on Anime QandA so they can check out everyone’s picks!
  2. Use the ‘Build A Harem’ logo somewhere in the post.
  3. Make sure to mention the person who nominated you too!
  4. Pick 5 Anime Characters (any show & any gender) that would be in your ideal harem if you were the main character of a harem anime, explain a little bit as to why they are your picks (if you want).
  5. Make sure each character you pick falls into some of the following harem character types: Childhood friend, tom boy/girl, genki girl/boy, loli/shota, tsundere, yandere, kuudere, dandere, etc. (If there’s a character you’ve picked that doesn’t specifically fall into one of these types or falls into multiple types that’s fine too!)
  6. Nominate 5 people to participate in this tag!

I…well, I’m almost afraid what my harem building will bring, because I know I have a Type, and that Type is mean girls. I’m like, the tsundere queen. If she scowls, I’m in. If she’s a bully, I’m in. If she’s killed thousands of people, I’m in. To give a non-anime example to put this in perspective – when I played Life is Strange, I skipped right over Chloe and shipped Max with Victoria. Oh, I totally had a crush on this girl who lightly bullied me in high school. Maybe there’s some psycho-analyzing that needs to be done here…

So here it is, my harem of angry anime girls. They’re all some level of tsundere, I think, so they totally fit into the archetype of harems, right? I just, uh, cheated a bit because that’s pretty much the only type of anime character I included. But, they’re different kinds of tsundere angry! So, like, there’s variety-ish!

(once again, I’m a scrub and I’m using the Western name order, because I confuse myself if I don’t)
