SnK Character QuizThis has been circulating around tumblr for a few days, but I'd like to draw your attention to the Shingeki no Kyojin Character Quiz on April's issue of Pash! ...A Japanese magazine on anime. Go nuts with it, have fun, and see what you get. I got Erwin Smith, which I was surprised to discover at first, but then I realized that it was actually quite fitting. (Excellent charisma. Hehehehehe... You can all call me Commander Cherrypai now. 8D )
However, I find that most interesting part of this quiz are the character descriptions. They are very concise yet on point, and I can see them being extremely helpful for serious fic-writers with regards to keeping characters...well, in character. That being said, I was really, REALLY happy when I read Jean's description in the quiz results. Here's why.

SnK English Voices - My Thoughts and OpinionsDecided to take a break from writing depressing stories to talk about the English Dub, which will be premiering at Anime Boston!
I guess I should start by acknowledging the opinion that when it comes to localized anime, the Original Japanese Voices tend to be more well-liked than English Dubbed Voices in light of being... well, the original, and also due to the fact that Japanese Seiyuu are often tried and true masters of the art of voice acting. Comparisons will always be made between Dubbed and Original, and there's no avoiding that. That said, Funimation has really worked hard to set the bar high for English Dubbing, and I know they have what it takes to do a worthy job dubbing SnK.
When watching dubbed anime, I always try to keep an open mind and not let preconceptions cultivated from the original Japanese voices hinder my enjoyment. Characters will sound different, and that's to be expected. They're being voiced by a different
Shingeki no Mulan (AMV Stuffs)So I just wanted to let you guys know that I also make AMVs! ... Granted, these projects tend to be so time consuming that I only manage to churn out once every year or so. XD;; Sad, huh? That said, earlier in the year, and during the earlier stages of the SnK craze, I decided to make a Shingeki no Kyojin amv of sorts. Using a Disney song. The results were interesting to say the least. XD I just remembered it while sifting through my youtube uploads, so I decided to show it off here.
Hope you guys enjoy. XD My youtube name is 'ladymakaze' but I've verified my other name as cherrypikkins on the video and my user description. There's a bunch of old stuffs in my uploads list, mostly amvs, a lot of shippy stuff, but not much SnK stuff....as of yet.
If I find time after the holidays, I might get back into amv-making for a bit and create something for you guys as a way of saying thanks for sticking around and following my writing stuffs. I do have to gif
SnK - OAV - Yeap, I was right.UPDATE Apr 10th: More Jean baby pics, guys. OMG. Hopefully I'll get a lead on that OVA when I get back home from work today. Look at those tubby lil cheeks! Wanna pinch em...!
Jean is the main character of the canon series now. Poor Eren gets relegated to background duties. Somebody upstairs must really like this guy. XD I guess it helps that Isayama did mention how fond he was of Jean.
A screenie of the baby horseface himself. Wow, looks like he lived pretty well as a kid. Look at how nice that house is. (All of a sudden, everything makes more sense if he was raised a spoiled brat XD)
...Apparently according to Isayama and
Hey look! Something fun!Rinmaru made an SnK Dress-up Game! And it's pretty freakin' awesome! Females only though. =/ Oh wells! XD It's still rather well-done, think I killed an hour or so messing with it. Hahaha.
I've actually been waiting for something like this to come out for a while, so naturally I went ahead and recreated my concept art of Firefly-chan. XD As a trainee, to avoid spoilers. Didn't find the exact hair option I had originally, but hey! It looks like her well enough. XD Naturally, this is the part where you guys go crazy and create your own version of Firefly-chan, your Reader Avatar from any SnK fic, or any OC you like. XD (And of course, if it has to do with any of my fics, I most definitely wanna see it. 8D)
So I promised you guys a lead on Baby!Jean.UPDATE: Entire episode can be viewed here!
Here it is. Bow to your queen. 8D
I'll upload more once I confirm that I've found all the material there is.
Gosh he's adorable. And he really was a good kid in the past after all. XD (Firefly-chan: "Yeah Right.")
Do enjoy and stay tuned. 8D
Back from Hell like Freckled Jesus himselfSurprise, bitch.
I bet you thought you'd seen the last of me.
Holy shit, it's been a while guys! I'd say this is the longest I've ever been from you guys since I started the Just Be series. Two weeks shouldn't be allowed to feel that long. T_T I missed you guys so much!!
To those of you who've been wondering what exactly happened to my account, I'll be happy to explain. Basically, it all started with the lemons and limes. They got deleted due to policy violation. So, being the classy genius that I am, I decided to reupload them on the alternate account 'lemonpikkins'. Needless to say, the staff were not pleased and put my account on suspension for two weeks. The rest from there is history. And of course, the lemons were deleted again, which means I'll probably reupload them onto my a03 account (My username is at a03 is also cherrypikkins. If you want to see the lemons and limes, follow me there! I'll be uploading them again this weekend)
Closing an Era, and Opening the NextUpdate: Still in the process of responding to comments from Part 41 ... XD;; Please bear with me if you're waiting for a response~
Hello everyone! ^^ Hope you guys are enjoying your summer vacation! ... Unless you're like me, and still happen to be stuck with classes and/or work and/or other obligations over the summer. If so, you have my most profound sympathies. Incidentally, I live on the West Coast of Canada, where the weather is gorgeous one day and dismal the next. Doubly so since my university is in the deep mountain wilderness where the weather tends to be a bit more extreme. But I digress.
As I'm sure a lot of you are aware, the main storyline of my ongoing project, the 'Just Be' series, has at last come to an end. Now that it's been a week since I posted the Finale chapter, I can't help but look back and think to myself ... holy shit, that's a lot of words. By my guess, I've managed to average around 8k-9k words a chapter, so that's li
How to tell if it's time to stop writing and sleepI found this amusing error while checking over the draft I've been working on so far from the Sun and Moon series.
I do my best to keep my work typo free, but as you might have noticed, the odd one tends to escape me. A lot. XD;;;; Just thought I'd share this with you guys while writing the next installment of that Eren x Reader fic. =3
How to Write a Good XReaderA lot of people really like my XReader stories and some people have even asked me to read their stories and to give advice on how to improve or asked me how I make such good XReader stories. So I decided to make this journal to give the few tips I can, I'm no expert and my stories are nowhere near perfection or anything of that sort. These are just the few tips I would give anyone who is interested in writing or does write XReader insert stories.
(THIS IS JUST MY OPINION)
1. Be descriptive. XReader stories are nice when they are short and cute. I will use a lousy salad comparison. When you write a story with the characters and make them fall in love, it is cute and like a salad. You just have what is needed but when you add in a lot of description- it is like adding salad dressing, tomatoes, and cucumbers. A salad is usually better when there is more in it, depending on a person's preferences. I usually like a story more when there is a lot of descriptio
Real-life DenmarkHe exists. In my chemistry lecture. Thank goodness he's only in my chemistry lecture.
You all know Denmark, right? The tall, loud-mouthed, to-the-point, arrogant, hot-headed, oblivious, and lovable Dane? Well, someone like that sits about five seats away from me every time I go to class. He has the same upright messy sandy blonde hair as Denmark, blue eyes, tall height, loud voice, and ideal facial structure like Denmark might if he was real. In short, his looks aren't bad, either.
The problem? He's just like Denmark. Oh, is he ever. He doesn't shut up. At all. He has weird friends, but thinks he's friends with everyone. He always makes sure he's around a group of girls because he thinks he can understand them. He doesn't realize he's being too loud for the people around him to hear what the professor's trying to say. He thinks he knows everything, but he's usually about halfway each time. He works hard, but he brags more than his actions carry him through the day. He's s
Wanna taste of Attack on Titan English dub?Holy crap this was way better than I thought it'd be. The only voice I'd change would be Hanji's, but that's about it.

I'VE BEEN SAYING MY NAME WRONG MY WHOLE LIFE WTF!?My life is a liiieeee!!
I have been thinking my whole life that my name is Christina Anastasia Hanlin. I have told everyone about that..... Everyone knows my name......
But you know what.....
That's apparently not my name.....
So the other night, I was having a mental breakdown about being adopted and I was going off like, "YOU COULD HAVE HAD A MORE INTELLIGENT DAUGHTER THAN ME YOU COULD HAVE PICKED SOMEONE SO MUCH PRETTIER I'VE FAILED YOU GUYS AS A DAUGHTER I WILL NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH NO ONE LIKES ME MY OWN MOM DIDN'T EVEN WANT ME WHO THE FUCK WOULD WANT A STUPID FATASS LIKE MEEEEEEE" and just my usual mental breakdown stuff. So I thought to make me feel better(or possibly worse) I would go take a peek at the letter my birth mother wrote about abandoning me. My parents never wanted me to read it. THEY NEVER WANT ME TO READ IT. So, of course, I want to read it.
I seriously go through every key I can find, trying to open that little suit-case-safe thing. I finally found the key an
