Coscraft has been moved out of our flat into its own rented office! This means we get the master bedroom back. We've decided to stay in the smaller bedroom and use the master for bookcases and things like that. There has been a lot of moving things around (Coscraft was moved out with help from some wonderful friends) and now the flat is in chaos. But it'll be sorted... eventually... when that's done, it'll be time to look at getting (yet another) wardrobe. A fitted one, hopefully, although that seems to cost a freakish amount of money. We'll see.

The Fire Emblem: Awakening fandom has been very kind to me, I got really nice messages from people and OMG FANART and useful concrit. My fic is being severely overrated and I don't know why (jesus, it's pretty much mediocre compared to other things I've written in other fandoms). I'm still in a HOLY-SHITTO kind of state, more so because I'm literally a n00b so I'm just waiting for the day when I commit some faux pas or they discover I'm an imposter, and then be completely disowned.

My birthday had been celebrated last week! Saw friends and got lovely gifts, including Secret Codes & Battleships and We Are Smug. I prefer the former much more, I think, though I've only listened to the latter once so far so the jury's still out really. Storme is getting me Xenoblade Chronicles and the limited collector's edition of Drakengard 3. I also got a Monobear (D:), chocolates, baking equipment and things.

Lastly, I leave you with this: Bakumatsu Rock, a rhythm game with historical Japanese figures but set in modern Japan. In which Tokugawa Yoshinobu (and those who work for him, including the Shinsengumi) can sing the Heaven's Song, which brainwashes people, and that is how the Tokugawa government rules the country. Listening to music that is not Heaven's Song is punishable by death. Along comes Sakamoto Ryoma and his mates, who decide they will use rock music to free people's souls and revolutionise Japan. And so it becomes the Freedom Rockers (Sakamoto Ryoma, Katsura Kogoro and Takasugi Shinsaku) vs the Top Idols Shinsengumi (Hijikata Toshizo and Okita Souji) in battles of songs.

I shit you not.

And I'm so coplaying the hell out of this.

Congrats on getting your space back :D

Absolutely love Secret Codes and Battleships! Taken By The Sea is my favourite song on there, but I have a soft spot for most of them. Do you have This Delicate Thing We've Made?
Only listened to We Are Smug a few times before deciding it wasn't my thing, let me know if it grows on ya and I might give it another go.

Thanks! 8D

Yeah I do have that! I think I have most, if not all, of his albums. I like quite a few tracks on that one and then there are ones that make me cringe really hard...

We Are Smug feels too... experimental? I don't know. He can sing in the higher register but that album's got too much of it I think...

That's how I felt about it. If he'd weeded out the bad ones and kept it to just one disc it'd have been a really solid album.
"Words" was beautiful, for example, then you get to stuff like "Bombs up in my face" :|

I like how to build a time machine though, only because I love singing the "Oh my god it's me aged niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine!" part.

Ahahaha yes~ me too! I have a weird fondness for The Future Holds a Lion's Heart despite it being so squeaky, because of the lyrics. Overall there's a lot of really cool lyrics in that double album, but like you said, he could've ditched quite a few of those songs. DX

Still haven't tried We Are Smug again yet, though I think I can listen to Secret Codes and Battleships on repeat quite happily (wouldn't actually do it though because [ profile] storme gets bored of music really quickly........... >_>")

If you want to listen to it on repeat I don't mind, just don't be surprised if I disappear under headphones. ;)

Imposter syndrome, it must happen to everyone. But you know, even your mediocre fic is pretty great, entertaining stuff. =D But I'm happy you're getting so much positive feedback, that's always nice!

Happy belated birthday. I'm sorry I fail at birthdays D= Sounds like you had lots of fun, though!

I dunno, the fic is just full of woe and melodrama, I suppose that's what people like! XDDDD

Thank you <3
