“Yes, the Bechdel Test. It’s named for Alison Bechdel, who is a comic book creator. The test is, are there two named women in the film? Do they talk to each other? And is it about something other than a man? I actually think the Bechdel Test is a little advanced for us sometimes. I have one called the Sexy Lamp Test, which is, if you can remove a female character from your plot and replace her with a sexy lamp and your story still works, you’re a hack.”—Comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Avengers Assemble)
I’ve been meaning to post this link up here forever now. I’ve been pretty distracted and busy, though. Whenever I remember to, I’m in the middle of something else or my mind is just too preoccupied. I don’t even know. But yes.
I made a new personal mainly to actually attempt to be organized with my tagging system. But I’m still in the process of actually finishing my tags page. :| It will be done………
In the meantime, it’ll just be dumb text posts for the most part. I won’t even think to set up a queue or some such till I actually finish organizing things :l
In Ken Akamatsu’s acclaimed manga, Love Hina, Squall and Rinoa make a guest appearance in Volume 3, page 33, frame 6. The pair are seen walking out of a gaming plaza as Keitaro, the protagonist of the series, and Naru, the love interest, careen into a stack of plush mascot toys possibly meant for delivery to said gaming plaza. They proceed to regard the two and the devastation with bewildering astonishment.
*Nods knowingly* I admit, I was into Pokemon when it first came out. It was my first real fandom before I knew what fandoms were. I made my first OC— the “Terazue” name I always go by is the name I created then as a Pokemon Trainer. I still use it for websites, emails, etc. It’s essentially been my secondary last name since I was— pfft. Nine? Ten? *Shrugs* But no matter when you get into Pokemon, it’s always nice to meet people that can come in at any point and still just say, “That Pokemon’s the one I like best. If I was into Pokemon, that one would be my main.”
But GPX+ seems like one of the best sites I’ve seen centered around Pokemon. And it’s nice that it’s so easy to use and not time consuming for those that can’t always be around for it.
Hah, I probably would have gotten into it very early on if things had be different with my family. Financial reasons kept me from getting into video games entirely too far till late into high school. Final Fantasy VII and VIII were the only two rpgs I had ever played till my friends took pity on me, essentially. |: But, whatever video games had happened to land into my lap, I played so thoroughly and loved so much…
[sighs] It was a bittersweet time. Even now, I can’t thank my friends enough for everything they have exposed me to. :|
I’ll agree, though— GPX+ is definitely one of the best I’ve found like it. It’s very easy to get into, haha~
