mood: wtf.

Not much is sacred to me and I'll find a way to slash the straightest of characters, but this reminds me why I resisted watching Supernatural for so long.  Suppose I just don't understand why some fans are so deadly serious about their OTPs.  o.O

Yes we are, but at least I content myself with the characters and leave the poor actors alone. (Wincest for the win!) ^_^

On a completely unrelated note, in E'sT, do the SOLDIER prep cadets wear the same outfit as the infantryman uniform we see in Crisis Core or something different?
I've starting to put the Cloud plushie schematics onto paper and an still torn about what he's going to be wearing. In other words, do you want him to be post AC, in game, CCed or something else (I'm guessing whatever uniform you have in mind for the cadets). Any details on what you want (along with a specific colour) would be great as I'm planning to buy the fabric soon.
Also, do you want realistic wings or a simplistic cute cartoon style? Feathers or fabric? They'll be set on a padded wire frame regardless and not too large as to make Cloud unhuggable. <3
Sorry for all the rambling questions but I work much better if I have some sort of brief and the important thing is that you like it in the end, not be completely taken aback by the direction I've taken it in.

On yet another note, I'm kind of glad you're not in Edinburgh until next year. Prince's Street is like a claustrophobic rat run and the end of the tram works is nowhere in sight. I've started walking to uni (on the other side of town) because it's faster than taking the bus through that area. Hopefully by the time you get back here that'll be somewhat sorted.

WINCEST FTW. (According to a wiki, wincest accounts for 40% of the fic fandom. DUDE.)

Um, yeah, the cadets wear what the Regulars do in CC, or so I figured. Personally I prefer Cloud's AC outfit, especially as the black would set off well against white wings. I like the idea of feathered wings, but the shape and style and everything is entirely up to you.

And darling, I don't think I could be taken aback by anything you do except for the simple fact that you're even willing to make something like this. So don't go all insecure on me. (I can be quite the pain in the ass when I want to be. :3)

I'd rather be in Edinburgh right now even if the streets were running red with blood. I'm American and always will be, but damn if coming back before I was ready isn't killing me slowly. *gnaws on the chain of her senior year*

:3 And another 40% is wee!winchesters pre-slash that isn't included in the wiki survey for obvious reasons... I swear so little of it has any het. Poor actors. .____.

Oooooh, yesssss, the black/white image is lovely and it means I'll just have to go buy AC:C now (they've always had it out of stock, damn you HMV!). Yes, lots of watching mandatory. >_> *Amazons* Black linen would be closest, think I've got some spare, and I might be able to bastardise a key chain for Fenrir... *scribbles*

Hmm, realistic(ish) shape but chibi sized wings? I'll do my best with the feathers. *Adopts 'nice guy pose' sans sparkles*

The streets do occasionally run red with blood. Just wait 'till Saturday night around closing time on the Cowgate when they're doing shots a pound each (mmm, apple shots and violence...).

I have to admit that I'm not exactly sure what they were saying in that post. I know they were excited about it, whatever it was. Maybe it would help if I actually watched the show but somehow I doubt it.

On a side note, My British slang may be outdated (since I'm Canadian) but I thought a 'wank' was a bad thing? They seem to be anticipating/looking for it...

Wank means masturbation, and they're using it in reference to people who are so self-important that they create circlejerks of drama because they take themselves/their fandom/whatever so seriously that it's scary. Fandom_Wank is a mockery community in which the members keep an eye out for explosion of internet-drama and self-aggrandizement and then write up reports that let everyone else sit back and watch the fireworks. If you check out the FW Wiki, you'll find loads of past 'wank reports', the most famous of which includes fangirls who think they've married Snape on the astral plane and a BNF who manipulated her own fans into buying her a new laptop.

In this case, the wank had nothing to do with the show but the actors. It was yet another case of fangirls hating on the actual actors' girlfriends because they're convinced that the two men HAVE TO BE GAY TOGETHER OR IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD. Or something. And obviously their girlfriends are slutty fucking whores for getting in the way of the boys' twu luv.

I like mice. They're cute.

Ahhh yes! I see now.

They are akin to the trek!geeks of my youth... but with sex. I can remember many conversations where I thought, 'No, I don't want to hear your comparison of deflectors vs shields'. Maybe I would have... if there'd been sex.

I just focus on the fanfics and ignore (most of) the fans. *shrugs* I'm kinda disturbed how deeply people tend to get involved in stars' lives, anyway. Magazines like Star and such? They freak me out more than...I actually can't think of a way to end that. But you get my point.

Of course, considering I'm positive canon!Zack spent a good chunk of his time planning the perfect foursome, I can't say too much. *coughs*
