At work tonight... I saw she who must not be named lurking in the fabric section.... I didn't recognize her at first... But I could hear her talking on her cell phone and I got shiver-ies down my back and looked around the apparal fabric and she looked me dead in the eyes and THROUGH TO MY SOUL!!!!!!! I ran off; it freaked me out that much. XDDDDDDDDDDDDD

*needs hugs*

NO! You ran away? D: You should've did a devilish Holly smirk and flipped her the BIRD, TWIZ!!!!! XD
She takes the costume shop, and now she'll think twice before going into JoAnns super store? Maybe XD
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So that was an entry by Holly, commented by Momo, Holly, and Mandy, respectively. I mean, who knew we were in the middle of a gang war? We overtook the costume shop and now apparently they have posession of the Jo Ann super store? And whoever wins this battle gets to rule over AO? What the shit is this, elementary school? Really?

BROOKLYN RAGE!!!!11!!!one!!11!!eleventyone

Does anyone else occassionally have the problem where you'll be watching an anime on the net and something will happen near the end that prevents you watching the last few minutes? Or you at least have to wait a few extra minutes for it to download again?

I was watching Earl and Fairy on veoh. It's really cute, sad, and hilarious. The main male character looks and acts exactly like Tamaki. Except that this guy, Edgar, has killed people and has a Dark Past. The anime's kind of like someone put together Ouran, Code Geass, and Kuroshitsuji. The main girl character's name is Lydia and she's a fairy doctor, which means she can see and communicate with fairies. It also is funny to me that this anime takes place in Scotland/England and everyone's speaking Japanese XD

Anyways, so Edgar kind of kidnaps Lydia because he's the Blue Knight of Earl or something like that, which means he also has past of some sort with fairies. Unforunately, he can't see them and that's why he kidnaps Lydia. Lydia also has a magical talking fairy cat that follows her around. Oh yeah, and the best thing about Edgar, besides looking like Tamaki, is that he always sparkles. And I don't mean in a vampiric way. At one point, he was doing this frozen action pose and there was sparkles everywhere and he had the magical background and everything. And everytime he smiles, the infamous Bishie Sparkly Music goes off XD he cracks me up.

Then Edgar has a butler type dude kid that has a Geass eye. Not even kidding. When he fights, his eye glows green and leaves a glowing streak behind when he moves. I think there's also some sort of were/wolf character, but he's only cameoed in episode 2 so far, so I don't know what's going on there, but I want to know moar! Stupid slow computers and bed times!

I also ordered two YGO DVDs the other day along with two YGO shirts that I did not own. I ordered these things around Sunday and they were here on Tuesday. I was like, "holy **** on a ****** sandwich with ****** ***** on top and ****** on the side!"  one shirt is sky blue with three different shots of Yami, the other is red with the YGO kanji on it along with a small side profile of Yami XD Because who doesn't want Yami on their chest? The DVDs are the last two that were released for the Orichalchos season. I now own the episodes where Yugi's soul gets captured and Yami's all heartbroken and screaming to the Heavens and full of angst and Yugi!love. Mmm, Puzzleshipping. I got up to the part where evil!Mai is dueling Joey and she starts losing and having a panic attack because evil!Marik haunts her dreams and she "doesn't want to go back to that place" so stupid Valon jumps in and breaks the Orichalchos seal and saves Mai and is all, "ooh, Mai, she's not just some girl, she's one of us, I lurvs her, blah blah blah!" And then there was Duke XD He's bringing sexy back! What theme music?

For Jaime!

Why hello thar


As only a few people know, I recently cut my hair. It's pixie short now and I have bangs. I'm also getting a new pair of frames soon. They pretty much look like mine now, but they're only half lenses and they have aqua stripes. I've also been thinking about getting my ears pierced when I come back from Basic XD Man, I'm starting to turn all girly. Except that I thought that having my hair this short I wouldn't have to deal with straightening it and wouldn't have to care for it while I'm away and it didn't work. DX Stupid hair.

Springkink posted their new prompt list for this month. I loved a lot of them and I wish I could write for them, but they're all due in June and I won't be here. I also wanted to submit a prompt, but I couldn't figure out how that worked. They said to just post the prompt in the comment box, but when I scanned through the comment box I wouldn't see any prompts. Oh well. I might still write for the prompts I liked. I'll post the list and I'll find some way to differentiate between the ones I want to write and the ones I just simply look forward to seeing what other people do with. The special highlighted-in-some-way ones will be the ones I want to write.

There were also a ton of Final Fantasy prompts. I wish Basic would give me more time to write. I like to  think that while I'm doing fire guard or waiting for my laundry I can do it then, but I'd probably be so exhausted.

I forgot what I was going to write about next, but I'm mostly just goofing around on the internet looking for a Japanese PS2 that comes in sakura pink that isn't $200.

Upper Deck Enjoined From Selling Yu Gi Oh! Cards; Prescient Threats Of “Mutual Assured Destruction” In Counterclaims




Los Angeles, CA – In October of 2008, Konami sued Vintage Sports Cards, Inc. in the Central District of California for sales of allegedly counterfeit Yu-Gi-Oh! trading cards (details blogged here). The Court entered a permanent injunction against Vintage and, after taking expedited discovery, Konami discovered that Upper Deck – Konami’s exclusive distributor – was the alleged source of the infringing cards distributed by Vintage.
Upper Deck allegedly was the source of “at least 531,240 counterfeit Rare Cards” provided to Vintage. And in October of 2008, Konami’s attorneys discussed Upper Deck’s role in the distribution of allegedly infringing cards with Upper Deck’s lawyers. During counsels’ communications, Upper Deck’s lawyers allegedly threatened Konami with “mutual assured destruction” through litigation.
yu-gi-oh-konami-upper-deck-elemental-hero-aqua-neos.JPG
Konami then provided Upper Deck with access to the seized cards and subpoenaed records from Upper Deck to determine the scope of the alleged counterfeiting and infringement. One day before responses were due, Upper Deck refused to comply with the subpoena raising an objection of improper service on its California office.
On December 10, 2008, Upper Deck filed suit in the District of Nevada alleging Konami breached its agreements and committed fraud. The complaint also contained causes of action for slander and civil conspiracy arising from Konami’s communications to third parties that Upper Deck provided counterfeit cards to Vintage. In response, on the very next day, Konami terminated its distribution agreement with Upper Deck. Upper Deck then raised the stakes by filing suit in Amsterdam on December 16, “seeking an interim order requiring specific performance of the European version of the parties’ distribution agreement.” Konami then alleged that Upper Deck misrepresented the holdings of the Dutch proceedings in that “the five-page interim order did not decide any issue in this action,” despite Upper Deck’s assertion to the Central District of California.
Konami amended its complaint to add Upper Deck as a co-defendant and moved for preliminary injunction against Upper Deck, which motion was denied without prejudice (details blogged here). Konami then renewed its motion for preliminary injunction against Upper Deck (read here), which injunction was granted.
On February 26, 2009, the Central District of California granted Konami’s preliminary injunction application enjoining Upper Deck from manufacturing, advertising and distributing the Yu-Gi-Oh! cards (read order here). In response, Upper Deck filed suit, in the District of Nevada, against Konami alleging trademark infringement of its hologram mark, in addition to Nevada unfair competition and deceptive trade practices claims. (Ryan Gile blogged here)
And now, as the cherry bomb on top of the “mutual assured destruction” sundae, Upper Deck has filed its counterclaims in the Central District of California (copy available here), wherein it asserts eleven causes of action including breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, fraud, slander per se, and civil conspiracy. Updates to the fireworks are sure to follow. The case is Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. v. Vintage Sports Cards, Inc. et al., CV08-06630 VBF (C.D. Cal. 2008).
 

 


 

Back last fall Konami, who owns the original Yugioh card game, runs it officially (card packs, tournaments, etc...) in Japan and the rest of Asia, and licenses it for the rest of the word, sued a company called Vintage who repackages older booster packs together with rare cards in blister packs and distributes them for resale through various mass market stores like Toys-R-Us, Walmart, Target, Shopko, etc.  Konami found some of these blister packs that had genuine booster packs, but counterfeit rare cards, for sale in Toy-R-Us stores in the LA area.

In December, on the basis of info passed on to them from Vintage, Konami added Upper Deck to the lawsuit.  Upper Deck has the licensing for distribution and organized play (tournament) rights for North America and Europe -- I think also for South America.  I haven't a clue about Australia.  Upper Deck immediately countersued. 

Konami yanked all the rights and told Upper Deck to quit distributing product or running events -- that they, Konami, were going to do so from now on.  Upper Deck got a stay that let them continue to do so -- actually two stays, one in Nevada for the U.S. and one in the Netherlands for Europe.  Upper Deck has sponsored tournaments, distributed product, and generally done business as usual, including planning for upcoming tournaments, during December, January and early February.

Konami files more paperwork.  Upper Deck files more paperwork. 

And now a California court has upheld Konami's side, at least for the time being.  Last week Upper Deck canceled all planned organized play and support.  Yesterday and today they have been taking things off their webpage -- their official Yugioh TCG forums went down yesterday.  Earlier today the banned/limited card list and rule book was up, but by evening it was gone, and the last of their Yugioh pages seem to have followed shortly after.

I figured if Upper Deck was pulling things off the internet a court must have ruled against them, but the first news report I've seen confirming this has been only in the last couple of hours. 

Of course Upper Deck is saying they had nothing to do with the fake cards.  And this is all Konami's fault.  And it is the worst thing to possibly ever happen to the game.  Of course Konami is saying they are the best thing since sliced bread and it's all Upper Deck's fault. 

In the meantime Konami is planning its own organized play, seems to actually be getting things up and running fairly quickly without much delay, and seems to be scrambling to make this go as smoothly as possible.  The lawyers on both sides will no doubt be kept busy for months, or years, to come though.

And those packs of fake cards?  I probably bought one here in South Dakota, over a thousand miles away from LA, in our local Toys-R-Us. Oddly, one of the cards is almost certainly fake, the other may very well not be....

Edited:  Actually, upon further searching, I have three cards that are almost certainly fakes.  I thought I had gotten a good one, but no -- I actually own two copies of that card.  One, the one I looked at first, is genuine -- I pulled it from a pack during the McDonald's Happy Meal promotion a couple of years ago.   But going through my cards, I have another copy -- and that one is most probably a dud.  I thought the packs here in Rapid only had two rares included, but my friend's daughter said they had three and remembered what the third card was -- and by golly, I have two copies of it also, one good and one bad.  Good Grief....

Wizard Entertainment Confirms End of 'Anime Insider'

By Michael Doran
posted: 26 March 2009 05:19 pm ET
 

Wizard Entertainment Editor-in-Chief Scott Gramling has been informing the press Thursday that their magazine Anime Insider is ceasing publication as of its upcoming 67th issue.

In an email to Newsarama, Gramling writes, "...after several years of producing Anime Insider magazine, Wizard Entertainment has decided to discontinue its publication. The last issue will be Anime Insider #67. We thank our dedicated staffers for all of their hard work, and we thank our readership for their loyal support."

The magazine's staff has reportedly been laid off.
 

Originally launched as a series of quarterly specials called "Anime Invasion" in Fall 2001, the publication went bi-monthly in late 2002, and was renamed Anime Insider in the Spring of 2003. In 2005 it became monthly.

The news is just the latest in a series of moves by the company over the last several years to reduce staff and operations across its various arms. Most recently the company confirmed the "postponement" of their WizardWorld Los Angeles convention and the cancellation of their November 2009 Texas show, and later confirmed a round of lay-offs which included long-time employee/Senior Vice President - Operations Joe Yanarella.

Dancing King


Friday night and the lights are low

Looking out for a place to go

Where they play the right music, getting in the swing

You come in to look for a king

 

Yugi flopped down onto his bed with a sigh. It had been a long week at school. Spring was finally coming to Domino City: the sakura trees were in bloom with gorgeous pink petals and the sun was beginning to warm the world once again. It was frustrating to be stuck in the classroom all day.

Not only was the weather beautiful, but the week had also been devoted to finals and the end of the spring semester. Yugi had played the part of the good student for the past few weeks, always studying late into the evenings. He wasn’t the brightest student, but he had received decent scores. Grandpa Muto had told Yugi how proud he was with a congratulatory thump on the back that had almost sent the slight teen sprawling.

To celebrate, Joey was coming over in a short while and the two boys were going out on the town. That thought made Yugi rouse himself from the bed and he made his way over to the closet. Joey always complained that it was no wonder Yugi was gay since he took longer than a girl to get dressed. He figured if he started now, he would be fully dressed by the time his friend came.

The spiky haired teen laid a few potential outfits out on the bed. In the span of fourty-five minutes he tried on five outfits three times. Yugi had settled on an outfit at one point, but after wearing it around the house for just a few minutes, it didn’t feel right. Finally, right as Yugi heard his grandpa letting Joey in, he had settled on a black tank top with a giant blue star on the front that clung to his frame, faux-leather pants with two belts, his boots with top and back straps, and two leather bands on his wrists.

A knock came from his door as Joey walked in. He was wearing his normal white shirt with the big sky-blue line through it, jeans, and sneakers. Obviously, he didn’t care about looking nice tonight, though Yugi did pick up on the cologne cloud that followed him.

“You know, you’re supposed to wait for someone to say ‘come in’ before you open the door?” Yugi fixed Joey with a level stare.

“Yeah, yeah,” Joey waved his hand, dismissing the annoyed look from Yugi’s amethyst eyes. “You ready?”

“Yep.” Joey left his room as quickly as he left it, making room for Yugi to follow behind him. At the last moment, Yugi caught something gold shine out of the corner of his eye. He spotted an eye of Wadjet necklace on his desk. It had been a birthday present from his grandpa almost a year ago now. Suddenly, he felt compelled to wear it. Yugi ran over to his desk to grab it and quickly threw it over his hair, bounding down the stairs to catch up with Joey.

The two wandered around downtown Domino for a while, not really sure where to go. They went to the arcade first, but for some unknown reason, Yugi’s attention just couldn’t be held by games tonight. There was a need in him tonight, a need to move and just lose himself in a crowd. The two friends left the arcade, walking a few blocks before they came across a night club.

Joey commented on it, saying he remembered hearing that an underage dance club had opened a few weeks ago. Joey offered if Yugi wanted to check it out and without hesitation, he agreed. A gut feeling told him that this was exactly what he needed.

 

Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

 

The two had to wait in a line where they paid to get in. They had their hands stamped to show they weren’t allowed to have any alcohol. The club actually went down into a basement once they entered. When the two finally made it down to the dance floor, Yugi was practically shaking. He felt as if something great was waiting for him in here, something strange and exotic.

The whole place thrummed with bass. Even though it was the basement, metal catwalks had been installed around the place, making the basement two stories. Many people occupied the dance floor, some with glow sticks hanging around their necks, but it didn’t seem overcrowded. Techno music kept them all moving, some writhing sensually around a partner, or just simply swinging their hips back and forth.

It wasn’t long before Yugi lost his friend as he entered the crowd and started dancing. As one song blended into another, he felt himself relax and all the worries from the past few months disappeared with every step, every swing of his hips, every arm movement. Soon, Yugi had lost sight of himself entirely and he was just another person in the crowd.

 

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

 

It wasn’t long before word spread among the regulars that a new kid had come, one with strange, spiky hair, that was holding his own on the dance floor. Eventually, this news reached the ears of a group of four people. They were sequestered away in the shadows on the catwalk, sitting around a small table on four tall benches. The four went unnoticed as a boy and a girl walked by.

“No, I haven’t seen him before. But he’s got some excellent moves,” the girl said. She had short brown hair kept back in a ponytail. She wore a light pink tube top and short shorts.

“Maybe he’ll become start coming here more often,” the male commented with a shrug. He had short black hair and wore a baggy shirt and jeans. A green glow stick hung around his neck. “We always need more people here to spread the word about this place.” The two moved on, continuing their conversation.

All the people around the table the two passed had olive skin. One was female, with long black hair and expressive blue eyes. She wore an elegant silk cream top that shimmered in the half light and white jeans. Next to her sat a man with a shaved head, save for a black ponytail at the back. One side of his face was tattooed with hieroglyphs. He wore a long purple turtleneck and black pants. He kept watching the two teens next to him. One had lavender eyes and spiked straw blond hair. He wore a simple black tanktop and cargo pants. Gold bands adorned his arms. His leg bounced up and down anxiously, saying that it wanted out on the dance floor, but for some reason it was being held back, like a dog on a short leash.

“Would you calm yourself, Marik?” the final teen said. “Your twitch is going to cause the whole catwalk to collapse.” The speaker had giant spikes of black tinged with red. Yellow gold bangs defied gravity, following the spikes and also framing his face in lighting bolt fashion. He was adorned in a black slinky long sleeved dress shirt, three buttons undone at the top to tease whoever deigned to look upon him. A golden ankh pendant showed itself in the parted material. Black dress pants and shiny black shoes finished his outfit. Amethyst eyes with hints of crimson observed the dance floor below, but the view was limited by the angle their table was at.

The one he addressed as Marik stilled his leg. “I’m sorry, Atem. I just want to be out there already. How much longer do we have to wait, sister?”

“Patience, my brother. When Odeon hears from the guards to make sure the place is safe, you can go.”

“We’ve come here every night for the past week, though! No one cares that a price from Egypt and his ambassadors are here in Japan on vacation,” Marik complained.

“Hush!” Ishizu scolded him. “We don’t want people to start knowing that now.”

As if on cue, Odeon’s head piece crackled with static and Marik looked to him hopefully while the prince just watched him out of the corner of his eyes. He only had to give a slight nod before Marik had bolted for the stairs.

Ishizu gave an exasperated sigh while Atem just chuckled. He stood slowly, stretching languidly, in no hurry to go down. A few girls nearby giggled and eyed him. Atem raised an eyebrow before flashing a smile. The girls just giggled harder.

 

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

 

Atem enjoyed flirting with others. Who it was didn’t make a difference to him: single, taken, male, or female, the game was just too easy to play. With a coy smile and a sultry voice, he had anyone he chose under his command. After all, that’s what made him the perfect prince. His father, Ankhnankanen, didn’t think so, though. That’s why Atem was in Japan now: his father thought that maybe a break from Egyptian royal life would be good. Atem just rolled his eyes at the thought.  

For the moment, he was surrounded by admirers. One girl commented on his dark skin while another admired his hair. A third brought him a drink while a fourth just ogled at him. Atem allowed himself to relish the feeling of power he had right now. He had been feeling strange all night. At first, he had attributed it to nerves, even though he found it strange that he would get nervous tonight. Then he thought he might be coming down with something, but he hadn’t felt warm. It was just a feeling, like something was calling out to him and he had to answer soon or something precious would be lost.

The feeling suddenly swelled and his eyes scanned the dance floor. Quickly enough, he spotted someone he assumed was the person the two people had been talking about earlier.

A small space existed around this person, as if everyone else was afraid to join him for fear of disturbing him, which was rare in this club. He seemed content enough to be by himself, though. As Atem watched longer, he had the strongest urge to go and join the boy. He resisted for a while, enjoying his time with his gaggle of worshippers. It wasn’t until he saw the boy’s eyes open that he gasped.

Those eyes were so much like his own, and at the same time they weren’t. They were wide, shining with an inner light and held an amazing innocence that was simply adorable. Without realizing what he was doing, the prince started to make his way over to the boy.

The crowd parted for him like the Red Sea. Even though he had only been coming here for a week, everyone could sense something majestic about him. In that short time, though no one knew about his Egyptian heritage, he had become known as the prince of the club. Not just for all the people that hung off of him, but because when he had been on the dance floor, he had shocked everyone with what he could do.

 

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the Dancing Queen

 

Yugi was so into the music that he didn’t see the approaching figure or the parting crowd. It was the change in temperature that alerted him something had changed. He looked around to find that the press of bodies was gone, which had lowered the temperature around his heated skin.

“Excuse me,” a voice said behind him. Yugi jumped, and turned to face the speaker. He gasped. The stranger was devastatingly handsome. He had a regal air about him wrapped in mystique and sensuality. And he looked so much like Yugi. Whatever gods had a sick sense of humor must have enjoyed making a parallel version of the two.

When Yugi had been little, he had once asked his grandpa if he had had a twin at birth. His grandpa had given him a strange look and laughed, telling him that if there had been two Yugi’s, Solomon would have lost his mind.

“I couldn’t help but notice you, and well-” the stranger cleared his throat and offered his hand. “Would you care to dance with me?” Having the boy facing him now, Atem’s eyes flicked down to notice an eye of Wadjet charm hanging from the boy’s neck. He didn’t let this new piece of information show on his face as he nudged his hand a little higher for a response.

Yugi eyed the proffered hand before putting his hand in it. An electric jolt passed through their hands, though not an unpleasant feeling. Yugi and Atem’s eyes widened as they looked at each other. Atem instinctively pulled Yugi closer. Two hearts beat in rhythm, fast and quick, as if they were two friends that had reunited and were trying to tell each other what had passed since they had last been together. Both boys decided that they liked this feeling.

“I’m sorry. I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Atem.”

“Y-Yugi,” he responded.

Atem’s eyes danced with merriment. “Yugi,” he said aloud, trying the name out on his tongue. Chills ran down Yugi’s spin to hear that masculine voice say his name.

Atem smiled and, taking Yugi’s other hand, soon led him further onto the dance floor.

Dusk entry

To further mock Twilight, my short story will be called "Dusk." Yeah, it just keeps getting better.

"Close your eyes," he said. "What do you hear?"
I did as he said. I tried to focus on the world around me. Eventually I told him, "birds, up in the trees. The wind. Not a lot."
He chuckles and I feel him lean over me, his silken hair falling over my bare shoulder. "You want to know what I hear?" He must be leaning pretty far over me, because I feel his fox ear twitch right next to mine.
I haven't opened my eyes yet. I smile in response.
"I hear two squirrels chasing each other a few meters away; I hear the different pitches of the wind whistling through the canopy; I hear a river, a few miles away; I hear the trees growing; if you've ever heard a tree fall, it's like that noise, but slower, as if the tree is stretching." He smirks down at me and I feel his breath next to my ear. "I hear the very music of nature. But all of that pales in comparison to what I hear right next to me. I hear you breathe, slowly, relaxed. It's truly amazing you trust me this much. Even more important, I hear your heartbeat. And what a glorious sound that is."
I frown then and open my eyes.
"How come I've never heard your heart beat?" I ask him.
He places a hand over his heart...or at least, where a heart should be.

Man, I wanna write more to this, but I gotta go. Chris is coming in in an hour and I gotta drive over to his house! But I will definitely expand on this later!

The greatest vampire ever

So I have invented the greatest vampire ever.

See, the way that people become vampires is that they eat poisonous Japanese blowfish. The poison makes their heart stop, but they still live. And what they have to do is they have to go swimming in the ocean and suck the blood of the blowfish to survive. So they're like merpeople/vampires. Fuck yes. Shut up, you know it's hilarious.
