my personal life is the definition of "not exciting" so let's talk fandom instead


for lack of coherent commentary, here are my captains and vice captains being adorable. XP

Also, New Yorkers? Legends/The Football Factory (on 34th street, off of 6th Avenue) is a pretty damn great place to watch a footie game, doubly so if the relevant supporter's club is there (in my case New York Blues). They've bought me drinks and given me sweet Chelsea crest pins! But even beyond that, holy crap, I've actually started learning some of the fan chants because that crowd is just so awesomely intense. I probably need to cut down on the drinking afterwards late into the night part, but the rest is pretty great. (I really need to find a Bayern equivalent though; there are a few fans at Legends, mostly Munich expats, but it's hardly anything compared to NYB.) One thing I can appreciate is that if you're not in the mood for the overpriced food the main K-town strip is the next block over for cheap mandoo, bowls of noodles in the food court, and pastry shops.

though if we draw each other i'm gonna curl up in a ball and cry

* how have I never posted that Transformation (the Application of the Scientific Method sequel) is published? Also my gift to [ profile] louis_quatorze at [ profile] valentinesplay was Break and it's kind of gratuitously smutty but I like it anyway, and hey it's on [ profile] meretricula's rec list, woo! I'm clearly terrible at this fic thing, lol. also uh I haven't posted any of them on [ profile] footballslash or on the AO3, because I'm feeling lazy about tagging. Clearly I'm a terrible person.

* I doubt anyone cares but I've been at [community profile] fic_promptly doing a lot of prompting and the occasional schmoopy ridiculous fill. (First one is footie gen, the others are Ghost in the Shell SAC, because I'm shameless like that; uh, I hope you like Batou/Motoko as much as I do).

* And the rest from here on out is spoilers to a whole bunch of anime I've (re)watched lately and all of my feelings. Actually, would anyone like me to write a detailed anime/manga rec list thing? Stuff like "how I learned about Japanese history through historical fiction anime/manga" or "what to do after watching Ghost in the Shell and craving human-focused cyberpunk" or "mecha that make Kawa swoon"? Show of hands?

pretty much every incarnation of Appleseed other than the new TV series )

****Steins;Gate 'episode 25' OVA )

****Mirai Nikki up to ep 21 )

...i have no good way to end this post >.>

So! Application of the Scientific Method has finally been released as part of [ profile] cornerflag's Issue 8. It's something I've been looking forward to for a very long time and I'm glad it's been recieved well! Check out the comments too for information on what sort of drove me to write it.

The other cornerflag fics has been excellent too! I haven't gotten through them all yet, though I plan to do so. I realize I'm usually a fairly strict my-clubs-or-the-highway kind of person, but I'd like to start changing that a bit, especially with the quality cornerflag tends to produce. But a number of them are great fics! Really, it's been a delight participating.

I'm planning to write some form of continuation of "Application" for [ profile] footie_bang. It should be fun and pretty fascinating! It's already going in unexpected directions, to say the least, which is a strange and thrilling feeling.

I've gotten my assignment for [ profile] valentinesplay and it should be exciting! Maybe! Perhaps. XD

I am, uh, not going to talk about results. Considering how it's gone the last few games I hope that's understandable. >.>

In non-football news, I've finished Math Girls, which is excellent. The math can be dizzying even for a seasoned mathematician, but the romance is very sweet, and the two tie into each other very neatly. Seriously, anyone who can describe a dance with a discussion of the unit circle and make it work gets major kudos in my book. It's as much a book about exploration and proof and the joy of learning as much as it is about Taylor series and generating functions, which I also highly appreciate. I really hope they translate the rest of the series!

Bento Books is actually doing a thinly veiled fanfic contest - writers present math topics at the appropriate level, using the characters and style of the book, and the best entries will win a copy of Wolfram Mathematica 8. I'm planning something involving moment generating functions. It should be fun. ;)

Also, I've been playing a lot of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup lately. I am still a sucker for roguelikes after all this time. You can catch me at CAO playing (and by that I mean dying) under the name 'kawatan', and sometimes I'm at ##crawl on with the same name, because I am a big ol' nerd.

My post on the place you call home is still open for discussion, btw.
