Awe, thank you. Should I copy my reply and post it here? :3 Also, I totally love the name Tenchi-Mouse. Might use it and get a DW/LJ account or something with it.

Owls are cool! I think I may end up using it for an LJ/DW account. Just get around to creating it! Owls are such beautiful birds, aren't they?

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm still around. Had a rough day yesterday and I'm emotionally exhausted because of it. I'm also reading through fic before I rec them, so I'm not yet yet ready to reply to your last reply down there. Decided to say this up here so as not to crowd our discussion lower down. :3

So yeah, just wanted you to know that I've not disappeared on you. Hopefully I'll be able to reply to you soon. Yeah, I know you said that I could take my time, but I felt a bit bad for not letting you know why I haven't yet. I hope to be back with a lot of recs for you! And I hope you're enjoying the KakaGai fic, I recced. Would love to hear your thoughts on them when we resume our discussion. Hope you're doing well. Bye for now!

They really are! :3

Yeah, it's can be a bit stressful for me when it comes to writing so much or responding in general. I can get a bit frustrated about my wording or if I don't know what to say. I also tend to worry about what I've said and how it will be taken by whoever I'm replying to. I tend to worry a lot.

I hope that you're enjoying them! I can't wait to hear your thoughts about them in our next chat! It will be fun to have someone to discuss fics with. Hopefully I'll be able to respond and continue our conversation soon, so we can fangirl and squee over those KakaGai fics. :3

I'm sorry that I've not gotten around to replying yet. My internet is being incredibly wonky as of late and there was a lot going on this past week. Just letting you know that I'm still around! Haven't disappeared.

I'll probably have to end up calling my ISP and see if they'll send a tech down. I can't believe it's been ten days since this reply. Just dropping by to let you know that I'm still around. And I plan on continuing our conversation soon~! So look forward to it. If you're still interested in doing so, that is.

I know that I keep saying that, but these past couple of weeks have been extremely hectic, especially with regards to my family. I hope that you'll understand. Because of that I've not had time to read any of your recs, let alone begin working on my reply. I'm going to start on my reply now that I have time to do so. So we should be able to continue our conversation this week.

Oh my goodness, I'm sorry that it's been so long and that I've not given you any updates. Must have seemed like I disappeared on you, and I kinda of did, but I'm back. It's just been hectic and so much has been going on. I hope to reply to you soon. That is, if you're still interested in chatting.

I'm really, really sorry. Hope to continue our conversation soon.

I'm on my phone atm and don't have my computer but when I do get it back, I'd totally love to continue our conversation. That is if you want to, considering it's been so long. I'm so sorry for that, but it has been a bad year for me and these last several months have been an emotional rollercoaster.

I thought I'd let you know that I'm alright. Hope you had a good holiday.

I'm sorry for leaving you hanging yet again. I thought the new year would be better but so far, it is just as terrible. I won't go into many details but will say that last month was brutal with and I'm not sure when we will be able to chat.

I hope that you're doing well and that hopefully things will settle down enough and get better so I can get back into the groove of things. I hope that you'll still want to chat. We could start fresh whenever I get the time, since I'm not sure how keen you are on continuing months-old conversations.

Several of my ships and OTPs are rare. I'll list them towards the end of my reply. Oh, if you don't mind, then I'd love that! Exchanging fic s, and other stuff would be great and it's something that I'd love to do! I don't get to do it very often, since I've not active that in fandom.

More of a lurker than a participant, even though I'd love to participate! I'm just too shy and anxious to do so. Don't know how to get involved. I do have one friend in fandom though and we exchanged fics and such. It would be great if we could become friends! :3

I'm ashamed to admit that I have not seen The Room! I want to, but I've just never had the chance.

Mysterious Night is fantastic. Such a wonderful song, it almost makes me want to learn how to drive, so I can take a midnight ride on a motorcycle while listening to it.

Isn't it though? I can't edit images, but if I could I'd edit that crease. How lucky you were! Damn, I wish I had a time machine or something so I could back and experience those fandoms.

A few of those are fandoms I'm currently reading for/lurking in. That's exactly how I got into Gundam Wing! I didn't watch it on Toonami for som reason. I wish that I'd been around for them. Though I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the shipping wars, heh. Maybe from afar? That's why I've taken to saving fic! That way if it disappears I'll have a copy! Do you save fic?

Most of my playlist is filled with anime songs, heh. There's a lot of fantastic anime music out there! Trying to expand my playlist though with newer bands. I don't really keep up with new music much anymore. I live under a rock, lol. I'm so slow when it comes to getting into things.

You're absolutely welcome! I'm glad to be of help. Tell me what you think of them! :)

I read Emma online and was enchanted by it that after reading, I went to look and see if it was licensed. Then I found out CMX manga closed down and was so disappointed. I've seen a few episodes of the anime version! It's good! The music in it is so good too! The opening and ending things are all instrumentals! Glad to hear it! I hope that you'll be able to finish the manga series that you were unable to pick up!

You do? I'm sorry to hear that. Um, I'm uncertain if I should press, but are you doing a bit better in regard to your depression? I'm sorry if that's too personal. Don't answer if you don't want to. Just want to know you're doing better. Losing interest is so damn terrible. And I'm starting to lose interest in the few things that still make me happy.

Any book recs you have would be helpful! I've been looking into YA books to read so recs for those would be much appreciated. :3 Reading fanfic makes me happy too, but it can be an exercise in frustration when trying to find fics for some of my ships.

I forgot to mention, that I watch Psych as well. There's probably a few other shows as well, but I'm tired atm and can't remember them, lol. Do you have any television series you can rec? Don't have Netflix/Itunes/Amazon, and money's tight, but I'll see what I can do about getting around and watching them. Alright! I'm going to finish up Buffy and Angel! I've seen Smile Time which is absolutely hilarious and You're Welcome, which is awesome, and heartbreaking towards the end. A solid episode which made me squee. That whole Connor/Cordelia and body possession is what puts me off the most of it. Just, why Joss, why?

Ah, thank you! You're not boring at all! :3

I don't browse tumblr too much even though I have one, lol. I'm not very active on it. I get a lot of my fanart from pixiv and deviantart though.

You're rather versatile when it comes to shipping, aren't you? That's great! I'm not. I usually have my favorite characters who I gravitate towards and ship them with damn near everyone and don't pay much attention to other ships. I'm openminded to other ships, but I'm usually so focused on my main ships, that I don't look into them. Don't worry, I'm a die for my ship kind of gal, so there won't be any shipping wars with me.

I'm afraid I don't know a lot of those shows/characters/ships. Like I said, live under a rock. I'm sorry for that, lol. I'll have to check some of them out!

Alright, here are my ships! There's probably more, but again, I'm tired.
Hope you aren't too disappointed with the lack of variety/fandomsships. I don't ship for every show I watch. in fact, I don't ship in most shows that I watch.

BTW, he ship I was talking about in my last reply was Heero Yuy/Chang Wufei. I could gush on and on about that ship, but I don't want to annoy you with my fangirling.

Angel/Cordelia (My Angel OTP. They just clicked for me.)
Cordelia/everyone. (She's so damn shippable!)



Doctor Who
The Doctor/Tardis

G Gundam

Gundam Wing
Heero Yuy/Chang Wufei, (My OTP of OTPs. Love it so much. So intense, so damn awesome together. So damn rare. )
Duo Maxewell/Chang Wufei,
Trowa Barton/Chang Wufei,
Quatre Winner/Chang Wufei

Gai/Kakashi (OTP)


Tenchi Muyo
Tenchi/Ryoko (OTP)

Yu Yu Hakusho
Kuwabara/Kurama (OTP for this fandom)

You're lucky in that regard. Some of my fandoms are small, lol.

Likewise! I'd love it if you shared recs with me too! Alright, I'd be happy to rec you some stuff. I'm going to head to bed, so I won't go digging for fic recs right now. I've found some absolutely gorgeous Princes Tutu art, which I'm sure you've probably seen before, but I hope you haven't. Will share it with you later today!

Sorry my reply took so long. Stray cat having kittens, and it's cold and snowing outside so I had to bring her in.

Argh, so many typos! I meant to say that I'm not a die for my ship kind of gal. So yeah. No shipping wars from me or other annoying behavior concerning my ships.

That was such a bad typo to make!

I tend to be the one reccing stuff to my friend, heh. Haven't really got any recs from them yet. I've been conversing with them for a year, but I can sometimes take months to reply, because of depression and such, so we've not exchanged many emails. So I'll be grateful for any recs you can give me. How often does F!S have general fic rec threads? I've thought about starting a thread searching to see if some has any copies of an author's GW fanfics that they took down, but I'm hesitant to do so. I don't know where else to really ask if anyone has any copies of those fics and tbh, I'm not sure if anyone has them. They were taken down in 2010, a few months before I got into the Gundam Wing. It does seem like we have a few ships in common, so I'm happy for that! :3

I've got a bit of fic saved, mostly GW fic, but I've got a few others. FanfictionDownloader is a godsend and so is AO3's option to download fic! Waybackmachine is another godsend, but it's frustrating when it doesn't have the page archived or the server hosting those webpages is down.

I can't think of any of GW fic that I've come across with a green background, but I do know of when with a hideous layout with a blue background that's still up and running. It's called Deb's Dragon Gundam Wing Diaries. Oh yeah, I've come across the Relena hate, but not as much as you did because I mostly stick to those four GW pairings I listed. I was pretty indifferent to her, but she's growing on me. If you saw my Gundam Wing folder, you'd think I shipped 1xR because I've been building up quite a folder for it. It's got some pretty fanart! I'm uncertain about my feelings on the pairing though.

Oh, I'm spoiled too because of FanfictionDownloader and AO3's neat little option where you can download fic. It can be a bit annoying to save fic off DW/LJ manually, especially if they're longer fic.

I'm not just out of the loop when it comes to music. TV shows, movies, books, etc. You name it and I'm probably out of the loop for it. One catchy song that I've been listening to almost nonstop for the past few weeks is Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men. Oh my goodness, it's so absolutely fantastic. And I can't get it out of my head. I tend to listen to a song until I get tired of and then give it a little while before listening to it again. And when I do, it's just as fantastic as the first time I've heard it. Though sometimes I don't get tired of it at all.

Isn't it though? Love Golden Time Lover! Those covers are actually pretty good! Thank you so much for sharing! :3 Here's an English cover of The Real Folk Blues! I think it's great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYUk-ISUTcI

Oh, I meant music recs in general, lol. Stuff from any country, heh. I enjoy all of those bands too! T.M. Revolution especially! Heart of Sword and Invoke are too of my favorites. As for bands, I really like Orange Pekoe, Porno Graffiti, Suga Shikao, Kalafina, Yuki Kajiura, and Akino Arai just to name a few. Check out Porno Graffiti's Koyoi, Tsuki ga Miezutomo. So damn catchy.

I know! I was hoping that someone would pick up Emma and release it again. Yen Press is publishing Otoyomegatari, so I'm kind of hoping they'll pick up Emma.

Alright, I was worried that I may have overstepped my boundaries or made you uncomfortable. Talking helps, huh? I feel like a burden whenever I talk about my depression. I'm thankful that you were able to get help and therapy. What medication are you on? And how much does it help? Battling depression is indeed a constant uphill battle, one that I know very well. It's good that it's working out for you and you're able to start to enjoy life as well as enjoying stuff that you had grown apathetic about. :3 It's a bit hard for me to describe my depression atm, but maybe I'll be able to put it into words later today. I'm currently in that phase, where I don't even want to get up or wake up. All I want to do is sleep. I'm also a bit uncomfortable talking about it, but because of decisions I've made and my current situation which is why I'm unable to get help.

Thank you for all of the book recs! I'll google them later and see if any catch my interest. If any of them do, I'll try to go to the library and see if they have nay of them. I live in a small, rural town, and the library's small so there's a chance they may not have any of these. I've heard of Tamora Pierce, but I've never read any of her stuff. Heard she's a fantastic writer though. Hoor for strong, fleshed out, female protags! I'm absolutely glad to hear that the love interests are decent and that the romance doesn't overshadow the plot. Far to often the plot and character development take a backseat to the romance.

Joss totally enjoys seeing his characters suffer, doesn't he? I've heard that they had to rewrite season four because of Charisma's pregnancy and I've heard that Joss wasn't too happy that she was pregnant. Not sure how much truth is in that though. You're talking about the Jasmine thing, right? Yeah, I've been spoiled on that.

Psych's pretty good! The theme song's catchy as hell and fits the series perfectly. There's so many versions of the them song that I can't decide which is my favorite! It's a tossup between the original, the Spanish version, and the a Capella version. Shawn's very privileged and quite an asshole, but I can't stop watching the series. Veronica Mars? Isn't that getting getting a film? It's being funded through Kickstarter, I think. Will check it out! Seems right up my alley. Farscape sounds like my kind of series too. I enjoy Sci-Fi, so thanks! Sparatcus has a lot of hot, sweaty, bloody men brawling in it, right? please say yes... Lol. :3 Thank you for the rest of the recs as well. I must confess that I enjoy melodrama to a certain extent, so totally looking forward to trying out those soap opera-ish shows if I can.

I sign into my tumblr every few months, but other than that, I don't really browse it unless I get an urge out of the blue. It's a bit intimidating, isn't it? It is for me, at least.

You seem to be pretty versatile! You've got a couple of series where you ship everyone with everyone else, so you've got a lot of variety when it comes to ships. Not so much, for me. For most of my OTPs as you can see, I can ship them with other people. Snape/Harry, huh? Why do you like the pairing? Feel free to gush, I don't mind. I'm trying to see the appeal of it and be open-minded. I wasn't a huge Snape fan, tbh. I liked him okay, but I wasn't that into him. I guess the same could be said for all of the Harry Potter characters. I loved the books, but for some reason, looking back on it, I really didn't have a favorite character or one that I absolutely adored. Maybe I should pick up the books again and read them. Kind of went of on a tangent there, lol.

I ship Gai/Kakashi so damn hard. Like you wouldn't believe! These two, oh my god, these two are fucking perfect for each other. Seriously, while Kakashi acts like he's annoyed by Gai, (and to be honest he probably is) and doesn't care about him; you can just tell that he considers Gai his friend. His best friend, even. No one's as close to Kakashi as Gai is and for that reason, if Kakashi were to be in any sort of relationship, it would be him. I've never been too good at expressing myself in words, (though I'm trying my hardest and making a little progress in that area) particularly when it concerns something I absolutely adore, so I'll just leave you with some recs that hopefully convey why I love this pairing so damn much. Why do you like it? Maybe you can put it into words better than I can.

This following fic is gen, but it really shows how Gai is able to help pull Kakashi out of rut.
Another gen frienship fic, that's short and really shows how Gai is attune to Kakashi.

I absolutely recommend everything by this author. Most of their stuff is on FF.net, but I'll also link their AO3 account. They run a community on FF.net that has good Gai/Kakashi fics in it, so check it out too. They seem to be in fandom limbo because of real-life issues, but I do hope everything turns out well and the return and continue to bless us with their awesome writing. Selfish, I know but their writing is so good. And KakaGai doesn't have much fic for it. I hope you enjoy these fic! Tell me what you think about them.

Particular fics of theirs that I'm fond of are:

Before is an ongoing fic, that I really hope doesn't get abandoned because it's premise is great and it's got so much potential.

Gai is so damn shippable and so is Lee! I'm glad that you approve of my Naruto pairings! And I'm glad that you ship them as well, especially Gai/Kakashi, It's such a criminally underrated pairing.

I was going to rec you some Cordelia/Angel fic in my last response, but I wasn't sure if you shipped them! :3 I'll have to reread it though and go through what Cordy/Angel fic I have bookmarked so I can rec you some awesome fic! I also have a Spike/Cordelia/Angel fic to rec you! Spike/Cordy is my second favorite Cordy pairing. Can you imagine the snark? It would be fantastic! You're right, it was so damn adorable. Especially of them taking care of Connor together! The whole gang was like a big family during that, even more so than normal, and gave me such feels! Gunn/Fred was dorky and adorable and oh my god, so damn good. Wasn't that big on Wes/Fred though, for some reason.

I can't seem to ship Aang with anyone, I just can't. I have no idea why, however if you have any Aang/Katara or Zuko/Aang recs, I'll gladly try them out. Sokka/Suki is good, but I must admit my favorite Sokka ship is Sokka/Toph with my second favorite being Sokka/Yue. Not much fic for for that, sadly.

I'm not sure why I keep up with Bleach anymore. I watched the anime on Adult Swim, but forgot about it and only started reading the manga a few years ago. It's really, really gone downhill and no I idea why I read it anymore. For the characters, I suppose. Especially Orihime. I managed to catch Martha's season of Doctor Who before I saw any of the other series, and I immediately loved her. Ten was a bit of an asshole to her and there's some issues I take with how she was written, but I love her. And I fucking love her with Ten. They had a lot of chemistry, imo, when he wasn't being all mopey. I'll dig up some Doctor Who recs for ya! I'll try to keep in him mind that you don't ship him sexually with any of the companions while reccing fic. Donna's awesome too and it was such a shame what happened to her. Absolutely heartbreaking.

Tbh, I never really cared for 1x2, 3x4, or 5x13 because, I, well, found them boring, among other reasons. And I don't particularly care for Treize that much. I mean there's some awesome fic for those pairings, but they're not my cup of tea. I'm such a huge Wufei fangirl and he's easily my favorite character in almost anything ever. He gets a lot of flack in fandom, and is vastly underappreciated imo. I could gush on and on about him, but I don't wish to annoy you. I've mostly stuck to Wufei pairings, other than venturing out, and trying to see what all the fuss was over the pairings you mentioned since the first two are quite big in the fandom. I'm trying to be more open-minded and try out the other alternate ships in GW, like 1x3, 2x3, 1x4, etc. I've got some GW recs if you want them. All of them Wufei pairings, lol.

Ryoko/Ayeka! <3 It's love. Just absolute love. :3

I never really shipped Hiei/Kurama. Just didn't click for me, for some reason. I think I've got an aversion to a lot of the really popular ships that fandoms go gaga over, heh :3 Yusuke/Kuwabara could practically be canon. They acted much more like bickering boyfriends than rivals. I've got a few Kuwabara/Kurama recs, I think.

Take your time! I'm in no hurry! I'd like to try out some Dean/Castiel fics. What is it that you like about the pairing? Go ahead and gush! Looking forward to any recs you give me!

Here's the Princess Tutu fanart! They're all so damn good.

I absolutely love their outfits!
This one's great for an icon! Or so I think it would be.
This one's gorgeous! I absolutely love it!
This next one is peferct for a icon. You wouldn't even need to add anything to it, unless you wanted to, of course. Just have to resize it.
So very cute!
I really like this one and it's hard to put into words why. It's got a sort of tragic beauty feel to it, I think?

Alright then, thank you. The cat is doing wonderful and she's got four kittens. I've officially got two cats and several strays. I wish I could take them all in, but I can't.
