Zelda: Is our new home not amazing?

 

Sheena: Yeah! The high speed internet! No cows in the backyard! The city!

 

 

As my time was winding down at my factory job, I was starting to spend weekends and occasional nights at my apartment to get the feel of what it’d be like living there. This was one of those times. While plodding away at the computer, randomly decided to pose my Sheena and Zelda figurines together and snap this.

Some more bagging of fan merchandise while scrounging eBay. This is the version of Ruri from the Prince of Darkness movie, and I really liked it because she had this mature, collected version of herself. But at the same time, she had that sliver of curiosity and longing for her friends that she had from the first anime.

 

I know about the character a bit, to say the least. She’ll definitely be heading off with the rest of my stuff in my final move to ETSU.

Thanks to a tad bit of surplus with my new job, I decided to hunt down some fan merchandise on my favorite anime besides Gundam, Martian Battleship Nadesico! I had found this silk-screen poster about a week ago, and was just surprised that someone in the US had it (most of the Nadesico stuff I see is overseas). Ruri-chan arrived in one piece and now sits on my bedroom wall, and belongs quite nicely to the decor!

 

I also was excited about this a bit, as this was my first silk screen poster at all. So go me, I guess.

This was a silly comic I doodled on my physics teacher’s markerboard in his office. As I’m getting ready for my group Tales of Symphonia cosplay at Animazement this year, our Raine from our group tends to be a little silly at times.

 

Here, I make fun of her casting Photon on a random passerby who doesn’t believe that “she has magic.” She would often talk in the “cheezeburger” speak, hence the “I can haz” type of language that’s going on.

This was something silly I did with my newfound Zelda figurine I got from Animazement earlier this year. I found that if I was careful, I could have her mount Link’s shied on her arm, and kind of pose with the Master Sword with the other. I didn’t have the other camera to snap a photo, so I just used my flip phone to grab the shot.

I had been a fan of the game DarkStar One for quite awhile, especially since when I nabbed it as a Christmas gift one year ago. With my new computer, it’s a lot easier to play it, and I’ve progressed well, glad to say!

 

During this day, I decided to draw the decked out version of the ship on my teacher’s markerboard. Most of the people in the class got a kick out of it, and when another student tried to draw something else we all joked how it wasn’t a “work of art” as the other thing. Eventually my professor erased it, but it was a funny class representation.

This caught my eye; apparently one of my chemistry classmates drives a yellow Ford Focus, and has the Rebel Alliance symbol plastered near her driver’s door. I’m usually late for class and it’s a bit darker out, but I did want to grab a photo of it; to be honest, that’s the first time I’ve seen anyone have any sort of fandom on their car of this nature.

Act 26

Gate of Karnak, Habados System, Kalkuth Sector

Movers swam through the cloud of dark debris. Not long before the dark debris was two of the most powerful ships of the Galaxy, the Tartarus and the Sajuuk. Now, the Movers sift through the debris with their scanners, looking for useful material they could still salvage, pieces of technology that they would not want to share with undeserving races.

But besides those, there was something else they were looking for. One Mover signaled its discovery to the rest of its squadron. Not long after, another Mover found the other one. Both were capsules, made from a metal forged in the cores of dead stars, with a dark colored sheen that was reflected the sun and the stars about them. The Movers hoped that the two capsules would have survived the disintegration of the dreadnaught and the mothership. And inside the capsules lay something ancient, something that harks back to the beginnings of their race.

Act 25

Aboard the Pride of Hiigara

The repairs were quick and the Hiigaran mothership have graduated from critical to serious status, although the great Mothership remained under constant attack. It was a testimony to the unceasing efforts of the ship’s inboard crew and the Collectors to save the Mothership from the brink of destruction. It has been a while since Karan was on the Pride of Hiigara, but the familiarity stored in her memories and nerve synapses quickly switched in, and it felt like no day has passed since time they battled Makaan for control of the Sajuuk.

Act 24

Aboard the Pride of Hiigara

A last minute short jump saved the Hiigaran mothership from further damage. Karan wondered about the ships they had to leave behind, which had gathered around the Sajuuk to protect it. Something distracted the P3 attack on the Sajuuk, which allowed the dreadnaught to survive. Yes, she could still sense the presence of Sajuuk. Karan had inquired the status of the Kun-Laan 2 through direct communications from her own newly added links to the Pride of Hiigara. She was relieved that the Somtaaw mining ship was safe. But the Kun-Laan 2 had lost almost all her escorts in sacrifice, and her captain was wounded. The ship was heavily damaged, with several critical modules destroyed. There was no word on her Kun-Laan 2’s strike craft, consisting mainly of the improvised Super Acolytes. But their numbers have dwindled, and the survivors have gone on to protect the straggling Sajuuk along with the Hiigaran regular strike craft. With the Kun-Laan 2 incapacitated, the Somtaaw squadrons would have to dock on Hiigaran carriers for repairs.
