    On a report I saw about this vile bill being passed they mentioned the fact that even if members of the LGBT community leave Uganda to find a place in the world where they won't be prosecuted if they're "reported" as such the government will try to get them extradited back to Uganda to face punishment.

    I don't know how true that is, but if it is I can't imagine too many countries co-operating.

    I've never finished a Final Fantasy... Ever. :c
    I always get so wrapped up in the plot I rush between places and don't level enough, get half way on pure luck and can't get further without about 6 hours of grinding xp and give up because I get bored. XD

    First game I ever played was XII though. And I do love it, a lot. Despite the fact everyone always seems to want to hurt me because it's my favourite. I just like the look of it, and I like the world-story. Not so much the storyline, but I love the background story.

    I spend most of my time worried I'll come across as one of /those/ girl gamers when I try to make conversation about video games. :c

    I love Larxene /because/ she's a bossy, grumpy, maniacal, sadistic old b*tch. It makes her a fun character to watch. And in all honesty with all the egos floating around in the Organization she probably needs to be as bossy as she is otherwise she'd never get anything she wanted.

    Personally I dislike Axel (super unpopular opinion I know). I'm not sure why I dislike him so much, because I used to like him, but something about him just really gets under my skin. I think it's the cockiness, arrogance I can handle, but cocky just winds me up. XD

    Dearly Beloved is certainly my favourite, it immedeatly triggers off memories of the first time I play the games. So the first few notes deliver a nice dose of endorphin. c:

    Saix was most definitely my favourite. Although I may be slightly slanted there as he's my favourite from the Organization anyway. XD

    I like how they actually bothered to make his appearance change when he's in Beserker mode, because they quite easily could have not bothered and no one would have noticed.

    I don't like the Darkballs, they really freaked me out when I first played. And the fact I had one of those and a Defender come straight at me when I arrived at the front of Hollow Bastion's castle was enough to make me quit the game for a couple of days (yeah, I was a big baby over that XD ).

    And Neo-Shadows, they don't scare me so much as they creep me the hell out when they're in the HQ Another Side/Another Story cutscene. The veins and stuff just really unsettle me.

    That is one of the biggest over-reactions I have ever heard of from the police. Why does an upset, drunken teenage boy with a handgun warrant a small army of SWAT personnel? Surely one appropriately trained officer is enough to handle the situation?

    They certainly deserve compensation of some sort, although I expect that will never make them feel any better for having lost their son over something as small as a poor grade. Although I imagine there must be some sort of underlying issue that wasn't mentioned, because I cannot imagine anyone seriously wanting to die over flunking a subject as that can be so easily rectified.

    So I'm living in a student house at the moment, and ever since leaving home it's become horribly apparent that I cannot cook worth a damn. In fact today I had to ask my housemates how to tell when a potato was boiled enough to mash. So it's just getting humiliating at this point. :c

    Anybody here know any simple, reasonably priced recipes? Big meals or single portions are equally as good, seeing as my house do occasionally make dinner as a group. c:

    When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

    I find this quote helps me when I'm wondering if I'm "too old" for something. I left this site a long time ago because I felt as though I was too grown up, being about 15 at the time. Now I'm 20 and I'm back, and actually enjoying it more as an adult than I did as a child because I'm not trying to be a grown up anymore. I'm here to have fun, and that should be why we're all here.

    I'd like to say I'm capable of being the bigger person and getting over grudges, but I'm really not.

    It's not that I hold grudges exactly, I don't stay angry for a long time. It's usually that, because I dislike confrontation, I'll hide from people so the conflict never gets resolved. And as the people I tend to fall out with my only communication is online I rarely have to see them again, but as I'm a cosplayer and they're cosplayers we end up in the same places a LOT which results in a lot of awkward looks being exchanged and makes making friends difficult as I do my best to avoid them.
    But I only avoid them because I know I can be downright horrible when I'm angry, and I don't want to totally offend them and make pure enemies. I'd rather just people I'd rather not have to talk to. I don't like being hated, and I don't ever hate people. I just get scared of what they might do to me.

    Although I do think they shouldn't really make a new film, it's been a long time since the last one and revivals seldom go well, I don't think it's the certain catastrophe people are making it out to be. I mean Disney are behind all the recent Marvel films, and I've thoroughly enjoyed all of the ones I've seen and heard nothing but good stuff about the ones I haven't.

    So I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt here, just because Disney own it doesn't mean the Death Star will suddenly grow Mickey Mouse ears. c:
    In fact with the budgets and resources Disney have, these new films /could/ be amazing.

    There were a few "favourite/least favourite" threads and I couldn't find one for sidekicks.

    My favourite is Mushu from Mulan. Some of the lines he comes out with make me fall into hysterics every time, and I don't normally laugh at films. My favourite being "DISHONOR ON YOU! DISHONOR ON YOUR COW!". XDD

    My least favourite is Pascal from Tangled. He doesn't seem to do much throughout the film other than be there and look grumpy, apart from when he suddenly decides to trip Gothel out of the tower which I felt was completely unneeded. Although I do love Gothel, so that may be where my dislike for him stems from. Also the fact he's a chameleon makes me think it was decided a 3am "what haven't we used as a sidekick?" meeting at Disney HQ.

    What about you guys? c:
