So, here's a little reaction drabble for Ao no/Blue Exorcist's Chapter 109. It's my guess/hope for the next chapter and how to explain how the Rin we know came about.

Define (Ao no/Blue Exorcist) )
kristensk: Blue Exorcist - unsheathing sword (ane rin unleash)
I haven't gabbled about Ao no/Blue Exorcist recently, so I'm going to do it now.

Starting with this awesome Rin and Yukio wallpaper [personal profile] jordannamorgan made for me as a gift. The text is lyrics from the song "Fighters" by Ravenface, which is oddly fighting for the twins.

And, now for some manga gabble. Click for rambling gabble )

And, my final [community profile] fandom_stocking drabble, written for [personal profile] enemytosleep

Greed? (FMA manga) )
kristensk: smile (fma brothers happy)
This is a continuation of another FMA:B/mangaverse drabble I wrote last year called Challenge. Written for [community profile] fandom_stocking for [personal profile] cornerofmadness

Vacation (FMA manga) )
kristensk: smirk (ane rin smirk)
I've done far too few icons of the Ao no/Blue Exorcist cast not named Rin, Yukio, Shiro, and Shiemi. So, here are a few of Bon and Izumo taken from the animated Kyoto Arc and Kazue Kato's original art.

...Now I just need to do some of Konekonmaru, who is the hardest because he just doesn't make as many entertaining faces.

Sometimes, Maes Hughes' curiosity got the best of him.

Welp, it's time to start posting the fanfic I wrote for [community profile] fandom_stocking. This one was for [personal profile] snax0 and comes out of the immediate reaction texts I traded with [ profile] mintysage after seeing the December trailer for "Avengers: Endgame" with Tony adrift in space.

On the Off Chance (MCU) )
kristensk: snow-covered trees (let it snow)
So, as usual, the end of Fandom Stocking marks the last of the holiday season. *sniffle* All the decorations are down, and everyone's gone home. But, it was a good time. I got into my cooking groove again, making gingersnaps, two batches of peanut butter fudge (one for giving away), and my first solo batch of regular marshmallow cream fudge. The part where it had to boil for some minutes while I had stirred frantically was nerve-wracking, but the results were delicious. And, besides the food, I received many awesome presents.

My fandom stocking was stuffed with many lovely things, including greetings, images, icons, and so many nummy-sounding Italian recipes. I look forward to trying them out! There was also this gem of a fanfic gift from [personal profile] enemytosleep set in the FMA mangaverse with more of Team Greedling's antics while they were on the lam, something I never get tired of.

Otherwise, I now have a load of movies to watch and re-watch. This was the year of nostalgia as I got a copy of "The Neverending Story", which I haven't seen since I lost my VHS copy, and the lovely 30th anniversary edition of "Transformers: The Movie" on blu-ray. Besides those, [ profile] mintysage hooked me up with the Voltron: From Days of Long Ago thirtieth anniversary book. And then, for a bit of more recent nostalgia, [personal profile] jordannamorgan found me this in the box. ...I confess I left it in the box for quite a while just to savor probably the last bit of Inuyasha merchandise I'll ever get to unbox. Especially as I had no idea these little statuettes existed despite, obviously if you look at the photo, collecting the Toynami figures.

So, thank you so much to everyone!

Just a little pre-series drabble for Rin and Yukio's birthday.

Merry Christmas!

So, I was early with my Christmas image last year. Naturally, that means I'm insanely late this year. But, it's finally finished, so here it is.

And, as it's also become a Christmas tradition of mine, I'll share an image of my annual peppermint stash. Many thanks to my aunt and [personal profile] jordannamorgan, who were my chief enablers. And, not even pictured is the peppermint ice cream my aunt found!

I'll be back with some additional holiday commentary when I'm not quite so exhausted. Happily exhausted, mind you.
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
And now, the SWAT Kats Fan Art Page has also been updated with four new pieces from artist Cody.
kristensk: SWAT Kats rushing to action (sk let's rock)
Yes, after a year, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has finally been updated! My apologies to everyone that it's taken so long. ...At least it's a big update? There are three new stories and one new chapter to an existing story from Bill Hiers as well as five new stories from Sage. Plus an edit to "Duck Disturbances" by Mikazo, and I posted my latest shorts.

Now, it's on to the SK Fan Art Archive...

It lives! Yes, there's finally more dragon!Roy.

Yes, it's been forever, but I actually have eked out a couple of quick color pieces based on older sketches.

First, a glorified sketch of Callie braving the rain.

Then, a quick Rin for Halloween. One of these days I really need to draw Rin in one of those classic red devil suits for Halloween. ...And, maybe Yukio freaking out in response.
kristensk: SWAT Kats rushing to action (sk let's rock)
Just a couple of utterly random SWAT Kat drabbles. The first was written for [ profile] mintysage's birthday. The second came out of a conversation with her after looking at the recently released list of missile names that were suggested for the series. ...Yes, all of the ones I mention were on the list.

kristensk: Blue Exorcist - Shiro (ane shiro)
This is a quick little drabble coughed up in response to the latest Ao no/Blue Exorcist manga chapter, Chapter 102, and all the revelations we're getting on young Yuri and Shiro. Inspired by a conversation with [ profile] mintysage.

Persistence (AnE) )
kristensk: smile (Default)
So, I've now finished the 80's/90's Heisei Godzilla series.

I'm sad to see it end. The movies aren't likely to crack my top ten list of most re-watchable movies and I think the 90's Gamera Trilogy still wins for my favorite kaiju movies, but I wholly enjoyed this series. Random comments:

--I loved the old-school suits, models, and other practical effects. While a lot of the green-screen work was shaky and the limits of the budget show in a few street scenes where it's obvious some people aren't part of the movie... and thus aren't reacting to Godzilla rampaging just two blocks behind them, the practical effects were usually incredibly detailed. This era's Mechagodzilla was a special favorite, and the models and suits used to bring it to life were great.

--I've gotten the impression that the human castmembers are usually considered nothing but plot devices in these movies while the monsters are the real draw. But, I actually liked the protagonists of most of the movies and was solidly rooting for them against Godzilla. Particular standouts were Kazuma from "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II" and Miki, who is the only regular across the movies to have a story arc.

--Despite the above point, I do confess to a sniffle when Godzilla died at the end of "Godzilla vs. Destoroyah". He was the antagonist, but given his last acts were just trying to see his son - the only other of his kind - one last time, well...

--Little Godzilla is adorable, and I rather wish he'd gotten a movie of his own after aging up to Godzilla Junior.

Well, I guess it's on to the 2000's era movies now. Though there are only six of them. But, I do mean to get to the older movies too. I've already randomly watched the non-Godzilla "Space Amoeba" from the same company just because this movie poster looked at a glance like Gamera photobombing his rival company's movie.
kristensk: smirk (ane rin smirk)
I recently watched the second OVA attached to Ao no/Blue Exorcist's Kyoto Arc, and it had so many amazing expressions I had to make icons. Especially of Rin, who was absolutely adorable in his brief scene.

Background textures on the Rin icons are from [community profile] wolfbane_icons' gorgeous Blue Heaven and Sea of Japan texture sets.
kristensk: Blue Exorcist - Shiro (ane shiro)
This is just a little snippet of silliness inspired by a fan-translated summary of the third Ao no/Blue Exorcist light novel, "Bloody Fairytale".

The summary went as follows: "Maria is an exorcist in a little village in South America, and she's experimenting on villagers to try and create the ultimate Naberius out of them. Then her plans get interrupted by a pair of travelers who call themselves Shiro and Johan."

Sounds like a fun adventure, but I can only imagine it ending something like this:
