I think it would be in supremely poor taste to complain about the awards I’ve been nominated for, because all you lovely people were kind enough to nominate me! What I can complain about is my lack of time and seeming rudeness is not getting to them until months later, but that’s really just me berating myself, and really shouldn’t be considered a complaint per se. Regardless, I’m trying to catch up albeit lately, so here I go!
I was nominated for The Mystery Blogger Award by Pokeninja of the blog Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. She is pretty much an anime and otome expert, and though I haven’t been in the former’s world (alas for time!) nor have I ever really explored the latter’s (though there are now a few games I’d like to look into), I enjoy her site greatly, especially her Melanin Monday feature, which started during Black History Month, but due to popular demand, she continues on a biweekly basis. Her blog set up is so neat and organized, and she does wrap up posts every week in case you miss something. If you’re into anime, otome games, and awesomeness, I suggest you check her out!

What is the Mystery Blogger Award?
*The award was created by Okoto Enigma*
“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.
1. Who is your favorite Power Ranger? (from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers only)
Hm, this is something I’ve never really thought about! I watched the show when it was first on, and I don’t think I really had a favorite. I haven’t seen the new movie yet, so I’ll have to put a rain check on this question and get back to you.
2. What’s one item you regret purchasing?
I once commissioned a painting of Aeris and Sephiroth, my favorite ship. It was the very first time I’d ever commissioned an artist, and I gave very specific details about what I wanted in the picture even providing several images to give them an idea of what I was looking for. I had to specifically email her looking for updates twice, and when I received the picture, she hadn’t done the major thing I was looking for. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement, but I didn’t want to be a bitch or be blacklisted from the online artist/commission community, so I paid her and was civil though I did expressed my dissatisfaction. She said that she would work on correcting the issue, but it’s been over six months, and I haven’t heard anything from her.
I second guess myself though, and wonder if I didn’t make it clear how important that specific thing was, because it was really important. I wanted to make sure she made their height differential correctly, and she made Aeris way too tall. Like I have figurines of them, and Sephiroth is at least a foot taller than her, but in the picture, he was two, maybe, three inches taller? I was uber disappointed, because one of the things I love about them as my OTP is the height differential, and yeah, I know it sounds super petty, but it didn’t fit my mental image of the painting. It further confirmed my cynical belief that you should never get excited about anything, because I was so excited that I’d found an artist who drew in a style I loved and who was taking commissions. I could finally get a specific image of my favorite couple. It’s also spoiled me for taking commissions unless I know I can get a sketch of it first before I spend a single penny. I paid $150 for a painting I don’t like and haven’t looked at since (it’s just sitting a folder on my computer). I’m pretty bummed, and I definitely regret it.
3. What’s one show that never gets old no matter how many times you watch it?
I have quite a few go-to shows! Futurama (which I’m watching right now), American Dad!, Bob’s Burgers. Yup, they’re all cartoons. For a non-cartoon Star Trek: TNG. I love Sir Patrick ♥♥♥
4. Zombies are about to break down your door, you have to defend yourself, the closest item to you is your weapon. What is it and how screwed are you? (the weird question)
Looks like I’m swinging my purse like a champ. I also have some hand soap. If those bitches still have eyes, they’re getting foamy soap in them. I can also call for backup on my iPhone.
5. Who is your favorite megane character?
I’ll admit it: I had to google this term.
Does he count?
He’s technically wearing glasses, but he doesn’t technically need glasses, because he’s perfect; his eyesight is perfect, and he can see in the dark *swoon* Hrm…trying to think of a bishie who typically wears glasses. Oh! Vash from Trigun!
Omg I need to finish watching this anime. I have no excuse now that Kisscartoon (and it’s backup 9Cartoon) currently exist. I had a fangirl crush on Vash even though he’s not my normal type (see prior picture), especially when shit got real with him. There’s something about a typically goofball character turning serious/getting pissed that is so swoonworthy.
My Best Post…
Best post as in how many views? Best post as in how many shares? Best post as in the one that stirred up the most comments/discussion? Per my stats, the post with the most views at 1150 is Cosplay Confessional – Rose Quartz (Steven Universe), which I find really surprising, but my favorite post at 707 views would have to be my Heart of Darkness, Angel of Light – The Defense of Sephiroth. That essay was a decade in the making, and I poured so much into writing it. It could possibly be considered a horcrux, since I put a piece of my soul into it. I didn’t kill anybody though, hm.
I’m going to try to nominate people I haven’t nominated before. Maybe I should start keeping track of these things…
- The Dragon’s Tea Party
- Entertain Me!
- Orchid’s Lantern
- Falcon Game Reviews
- Boba and Games
- Forged from Reverie
- The Doctor shows up in the tardis. Are you going to the future or the past? How far would you go in either direction?
- Barring black or white, if you had to wear one color for the rest of your life, what color would that be?
- Tea or coffee?
- Do you prefer urban, rural, or suburban?
- What do you think there should be a wiki for that there isn’t already (I guess this is the weird question)?
Thanks again to Pokeninja for nominating me!
