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
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)
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
So apparently, April 9th's new SnK OVA...... is about Jean. That is, if I'm not horribly mistaken. This is looking at the post that was recently posted in tumblr and judging by the screenshots included and the fact that Jean's the central character on the DVD case and the disk itself. From what I can see, the little side story is set to take place in Trost, in the year before the invasion. Pixis is involved. Marco is still alive! Also, one of the screens seem to allude to walk-in incident with Jean's mom. XD Holy shit.
Needless to say, I'm looking forward to seeing more of Jean now that it's been a while since the anime's finished. XD I have a feeling that the story will be comedic in nature, but we'll see how it goes. If there's more Jean and Marco, there might possibly be more material for me to write on in the Just Be series. XD And as always, I'll find a way to reconcil
Fanart, Food and... Heichou? Is that you?!Hey guys, hope you're all doing well! To my Just Be readers, we're about to really kick off into Liberation Arc, so let's all get hyped! In the meantime though, I do have a few shorter works planned. Some of them are related to the Just Be series. And yes, I am aware that demand is high for the continuation of the Yandere!Levi fic. XD I'll do my best to try and cook up something for that. But before I announce ANYTHING else...
I would like to draw everyone's attention to the recently created READERS' FANART SECTION located right below my featured deviations!! I am just overwhelmed by the amount of love my fics are getting, to the point that people are actually going through the time and effort to create FANART for my fanworks @_@ Seriously guys, you NEED to take a look and give these works your love, they are awesome, seriously. And it seems like Firefly-chan has been a fav
Move aside, Eren!Horseface is taking charge now. >D
Bonus: Baby Pictures of Jean Chubbycheeks
Just as I thought, it looks like he had a normal, happy childhood after all, with both parents.
The shit I do when I should be doing tax returns. On another note, I just found out that my manager says "HAH?" exactly like Jean. He said that to me in response to a question I asked, and I just stood there gobsmacked.
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.
Vic Birthday PICTURE BOOK PROJECT CONCLUDED YO! This is now closed! Thank you everyone who participated! It was a fun project to work on! I will start a donation pool right away!
So here goes. This is The Picture Book Project! We plan on taking these months to compile a book of pictures of you Rangers with birthday cards for Vic and send the huge old book to him for his birthday!!
The Book will have a few Rangers per page, with a little note from their Rangers about 300 words in length, the picture itself will be a picture of one of you guys/or a whole group of you guys if you have Ranger friends, holding a big Birthday Card in front for Vic that says “Happy Birthday Vic!” which you guys will custom make.
The great thing about this is that Vic gets to see all of you guys as well as your card, even though many of you live in different countries and places all over the globe. As long as you have a camera, you guys can participate in this. It’s our goal to get as many o

DO NOT COMMENT ON THE JOURNAL, PEOPLENo drama in the chat.
This is applied to both personal drama and outside drama. We don't want that in our chat, continuing to do so after a warning will result in an insta-ban. No kicks need be given.
Examples of this in the past have been people bringing in bad feelings from another chat, starting fights and not respecting other people's opinions.
Which brings me to the second rule.
Respect other people's opinions.
I realize that you all have your own opinions, you are all different people and your uniqueness is a good thing. But not when it gets in the way of a pleasant atmosphere in the chat. Picking fights or slandering someone else because they think differently about a certain subject than you do will be punishable with a kick/warning, and then if the matter is pursued, a ban. Please refrain from blatantly attacking people's opinions, everyone is entitled to their own.
Do not spam in the chat.
Oh, my family...After making wontons, my brother suddenly came out of the bathroom saying, "Hey, did you know if you flick your nipple once it'll become aroused after ten seconds? It works. I just tried it."
My mom and I were like, "What? Where'd you learn that?"
Brother: Internet. It becomes hard.
(Of course he would try it.)
Mom: Like, ***** hard?
Brother and me: No! Not that kind of hard!
Mom: Hey, maybe when Daddy comes home, you should try it on him and see if the same thing happens.
Me: Heck no. Oh man. Maybe I should make a comic about this.
Maybe I should make a comic about this. -v- I have a weird family.
Marco's English Voice Actor...... is strange and adorable, especially when he goes through an existential crisis during a layover at an airport.
...I wonder. Is THIS how Marco would contemplate birth, death, and the journey of life? XD;; Either way, I look forward to Austin Tindle's performance as Marco in SnK.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
