Here I go again....
Damn, it always happens! I see or hear the wrong thing, and BANG!!! The next thing I know, I'm weebling back and forth between multiple creative obsessions!

To show you what I mean, here's the last two weeks inside my imagination....



It starts out with me still being on my YuGiOh kick (all because of the Ancient Egypt story arc in the anime). I start obsessively working on a new YuGiOh! fic involving Kaiba and flying, which was inspired by the music from a certain Tom Cruise movie (playing non-stop on my iPod). Oh, and I jolt down ideas and snippets for two more YuGiOh stories on the side. ^_^;;;

So, I'm about 80% finished with the flying fic when I make the mistake -- why did I do it? -- of developing a renewed interest in Devil May Cry -- all because a certain nameless acquaintance of mine points me to the latest Devil May Cry 3 trailer. I spend the next three days trying to puzzle out the lyrics of the terrific DMC3 trailer song and drooling over Dante.

And because I'm now in a Devil May Cry mood, I finally break down and get a new PS2 (because the laser on my old one was totally out of whack and giving me endless DREs (aka, the dreaded 'Disk Read Error'). So now that I've got a new PS2, all my cheat devices (Gameshark, Codebreaker, Action Replay Max) work! Yippie! So I spend a night or three replaying Devil May Cry, cheating outrageously, of course. Thank god for INFINITE HEALTH and similar cheats!

Well, my brain's thoroughly in a PS2 game mode, so I make the mistake of picking up Resident Evil: Outbreak (REO) for the PS2. This game turns out to be a rather entertaining game to play (when one plays on EASY mode, with the INFINITE HEALTH, INFINITE AMMO, ZERO VIRUS GAUGE, and ZOMBIES DON'T MOVE cheats running) in single-player mode (offline, of course). Yes, I need all those cheats simply in order to have the slightest hope of survival. This should give you some indicating of the true pathetic state of my hand-eye coordination. I do not understand how people manage to play this game on Very Hard with no cheats and no saves, considering that those pesky zombies keep popping up every two or three seconds. Really, I don't!

So I spend the next few days jogging along spooky hallways, blasting zombies. And the next thing I know, the Evil Plot Bunnies(tm) start playing their voodoo drums. I began getting vague ficcy impulses about a few of the REO characters (e.g., David and Kevin). Not as a couple, mind you, but on second thought.... So there I was, happily (if rather imcompetently) blasting anything that moves -- lucky for me, there's no friendly fire in offline games -- but at the same time feeling seriously guilty for neglecting my nearly finished Kaiba fic.

So even as I'm wavering between writing and gaming, I go and make the situation even worse by visiting www.adventchildren.net to take a look around -- something that I've been semi-consciously avoiding, probably because I was afraid that something like this would happen. -_-

Argh! That damn FF7 music gets me every single time! To say nothing of the hordes of gorgeous bishies in FF7: Advent Children (e.g., the Silver Haired guys, etc.) And I've heard rumors that Zack's floating around somewhere, too. I want FF7:AC right NOW!!!! ::loud whine:



So now I've got THREE things vying for my attention -- YuGiOh, Resident Evil, and now FF7 (and naturally by extension, COI).

My imagination has absolutely NO sense of discipline!!!!

::banging head against brick wall::

Current Mood: cranky cranky
Current Music: Top Gun <-> Devil May Cry songs <-> FF7

16 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

I could deal with getting whapped by ONE obsession demon. It's trying to handle 3 (possibly 4, if you count the DMC-related one, but it's small) that's a bit much. @_@

Want some liquor? ::offers::

Damn nice to see you around again though. ^-^ Sounds like you're doing well, which is great. :D ♥

BAH! There's no such thing as disciplined imagination!

...and my hand-eye coordination sucks, too.
If it wasn't for easy mode and lock on, I'd never have (finally) beaten Seph on my millionth try in KH.

Waah, it must be awesome (though probably very tiring) to be so inspired! Heheh, as entertaining as I find Yugioh, and your Yugioh fics, I hope Zack and Advent Children manage to push their way to the forefront... ^^ Looking at that gorgeous, CG Sephy with his eyes peacefully closed in the AC wallpaper, I think about how lovely SANE Sephiroth in COI is! Ahh, if only we could see his reaction when Cloud tells him all that he's been doing in the last 6 years, ne? ^____^ I hope the FF7/COI love/inspiration keeps growing! Good luck!

poor girl...

You know, COI wouldn't be attatched if you had posted an update in the last..4 years >.< BUT! i feel for you. i can't get one thing done without thinking about something else i want and need to be doing. Sad thing is, when i'm bored, none of these things come to mind...

So that means...

...that you've seen the Before Crisis website too? (http://www.square-enix.co.jp/mobile/bcff7.html) The nice one with Sephiroth and Zack and Trooper Cloud in the background picture?

It makes me happy. Too bad it's on a cell phone not in America.

I've been a fan of your GW fics for a long time and got excited when you started writing Kaiba fics. Can't wait for more of your stuff!

Steal a soul for a second chance
but you will never become a man
I just wonder what makes me stronger
in a life that craves the hunger
Fade away a quest for life
until the end judge me nice
Stepping forth a cure for souls demise
reap the tears of the victims cries
Yearning more to kill the suffer of a
'nother demon as I put it under
Kill before a time but kill them all
pass down the righteous law
Serving justice that dwells in me
nothing comes as far as the eyes can see
We are falling, the night is calling
tears inside me coming down
Bless me with a leaf off of the tree
For it I see the freedom reign
We are falling (The crowds cruelly demand for madness)
the night is calling (Upon a dream to head for sadness)
tears inside me (Come raise a life through truth of killing)
coming down (True father the blood is bleeding)
Midnight closing (A just treat for all to feel)
these sufferings of me (With menacing cries of victory squeals)
crown me with a (The goal before us seems to satisfy)
pure leaf (Which way the victim pacify)
Bless me with a (To see torture makes me stronger)
leaf off of the tree ( In a life that craves the hunger)
for it I see (I'll fade away a quest for life)
the freedom reign (Until the end, judge me nice)
Praise to my father (What footsteps will father follow)
Blessed by the water (If you imagine you live tomorrow)
Black night, dark sky (Steal his soul for a second chance)
The Devils Cry (But you will never become a man)


My interpretation for the lyrics to Devil May Cry 3

I don't think your lyrics are exactly accurate. Why don't you try out mine.
DMC3 - Intro
Steal a soul for a second chance
But you will never become a man
To just know you makes me stronger
In a life that craves the hunger
Fade away, a quest for life
Until the end, don’t judge me nice

Stepping forth, the cure for a soul's demise
Rip the tears of the victim's cries
Yearning more to keep the suffer of a
Brother demon as I put it under
Kill before a time that killed them all
Backstab the righteous law
Serving justice that dwells in me
Nothing comes as far as the eye can see
The eye can see
The eye can see
The eye can see


We are falling
The night is calling
Tears inside me
Calm me down

Bless me with a
Leaf off from a tree
All it, I see
The freedom reign

We are falling (The power’s perfect to end the madness)
The night is calling (Upon a chain to end the savage)
Tears inside of me (Don’t play so blind for truth of meaning)
Calm me down (True my father, the blood is bleeding)

Midnight, dawning (I just trade for all to feel)
Here softly, sobbing (With innocent cries and hatred squeals)
Ground me with (The goal people seems to satisfy)
Your relief (We’re slaying to make them pacified)

Bless me with a (A just intention makes me stronger)
Leaf off from a tree (In a life that craves the hunger)
All it, I see (I fade away in a quest for life)
The freedom reign (Until the end, don’t judge me nice)

Praised to my father (Watch the footsteps, but never follow)
Blessed by the water (If you want to live tomorrow)
Black night, dark sky (Steal a soul for a second chance)
The Devil’s cry (But you will never become a man)

thanks so much for this lyrics, i searched it for a long time
From: (Anonymous) Date: October 7th, 2004 10:18 am (UTC) (Link)
your both wrong >.> some parts are correct but others arnt so i took the correct parts from both of you and made the real lyrics

Steal the soul for a second chance
But you will never become a man
I just wonder what makes me stronger
In a life that craves the hunger
Fade away in a quest for life
Until the end, don’t judge me nice

Stepping forth, the cure for soul's demise
Rip the tears of the victim's cries
Yearnin’ more to keep the suffer of a
Brother demon as I put it under
Kill before a time that killed them all
Backstab the righteous law
Serving justice that dwells in me
Nothing comes as far as the eye can see
The eye can see (x3)

We are falling
The night is calling
Tears inside me
Calm me down

Bless me with a
Leaf off of the tree
On it, I see
The freedom reign

We are falling (The powers cruelly demand for madness)
The night is calling (Upon a ticket to end the savage)
Tears inside of me (Don’t raise a life through truth of killing)
Calm me down (True my father, the blood is bleeding)

Midnight, Passing(A just treat for all to feel)
Here softly, sobbing (With menacing cries and victory squeals)
Ground me with a (The goal before seems to satisfy)
Lonely need (Which way to make them pacify)

Bless me with a (I Just see torture, makes me stronger)
Leaf off of the tree (In a life that craves the hunger)
On it, I see (Ill fade away in a quest for life)
The freedom reign (Until the end, don’t judge me nice)

Praised to my father (Watch the footsteps, but never follow)
Blessed by the water (If you want to live tomorrow)
Black night, dark sky (Steal a soul for a second chance)
The Devil’s cry (But you will never become a man)


(Upon a "Ticket" is what it sounds like....doesnt make much sense)

Attention Suggestion

Three things vying for your attention? I suggest you limit to one: Conflicts of Interest. It's been almost a year since your last update and I'm dying to continue the story.

Happy Anniversary...?

^^;; I kind of prayed you'd use the November 17th marker as an opportunity to update again after a year... Is everything okay on your end? The online world is so weird, you could be dead and we'd never know... I'm sorry, that sounds horribly morbid, but in a twisted way, I'm trying to say that I hope you're well. Any little update (even to say "stop bothering me, you fools!") would at least let us all know you're alive and kicking. ^^; Sorry, it's just that it's been so long since we've heard anything--even on your blog. O genki?
