Luluko of the Rebellion by SapphireFoxx

Call me easily amused, but this is the best drawn genderbent version of Lelouch I've seen. In fact I like how the art style easily mimi...

Journal History

  • Mood: Thrilled
Hey folks, got some exciting news.

I FINISHED THE FIRST DRAFT OF MY NOVEL!

:party:

I told you all I would finish it before year's end. Hell, It's still 10 days before the new year. I might be able to get some editing done in that time. 

The current count is: 407 pages and 186,650 words. 

Here's what still has to get done for those curious:

* First round of editing done by me to re-craft words, spell check and make minor changes (hoping to go at least 10 pages of this a day, so this should take me to February at the most)
* Second round of editing done by me again to make sure everything is consistent in its internal logic (should only take only so long as I intend to take notes with first round of editing)
* Third round of editing done by my mother for full grammatical checking (should also be fairly long)
* Test reading of the first three chapters done by some very close friends. They know who they are. 
* Check criticism of this test run--if any--against the book itself (might take me a couple weeks)


And then, FINALLY I will be pushing for publication.

If all goes according to plan, I should have this series out on the market by May 2015. This is, of course, assuming the first few publishing companies I hand it to like it. Otherwise, it'll take longer.
But
May 2015, pushing for that being the release date and we'll see what happens.

This is now a THING folks. There is NO turning back. 


Production of Fairy Without Wings should return by January 7th. I hope to have some chapters out by January 17th. 
For those wondering about the time frame beyond that, do note that if you see a review of the Ah My Goddess manga, it means production will begin the day after and the chapter should be released a week after that. 

I also am hoping to have the next two installments of who would win done before New Years.


This is it, folks. 
And just to spit in Murphy's Law's face, I have TWO backup copies of the book. 

Ja ne!
  • Mood: Joy
So while I wait for :iconvogoshinki: to finish watching Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night, rather than get heavily invested in the final chapter of my novel only to risk being interrupted at a crucial point, I've decided to bang this sucker out that I've been sitting on for a while. 

Many of you may recall this:  Top 20 Favorite Fictional Females of 2014If you recall last year for mother's day I did a list of my favorite fictional female characters: http://draconichero18.deviantart.com/journal/Top-20-Favorite-Female-Fictional-Characters-368482968
I have decided to turn that into an annual thing.
Every year for mother's day I intend to write out who I think my favorite female characters are in the history of fiction. They could be from a videogame, comic book, movie or anime and I'm here to countdown my 20 favorites.
Please note: this is not who I think is super hot or who I think is the most badass this is a list of my favorite characters who just so happen to also not contain a Y chromosome. Ladies of fiction, this is for you.
Oh and as per the usual, one character per franchise. Otherwise this list would be unending. Other candidates from the same series (if there are any) will be listed when the character is announced.
This was the absolutely HARDEST list I had to put together, even now I feel my top 2 could be contested with


which I did in light of mother's day. However, you may also remember that many of those characters, while my favorites, DEFINITELY are less than stellar for role models. Yuno Gasai immediately comes to mind.


So,
I decided to compile a short list of characters I find even some low-end straw feminists could agree are worth emulating. 

As always, I restrict myself to the "one per franchise rule".

That said, let's begin



NUMBER 10

Applejack Ready For Anything by Fureox
Applejack from My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic

Starting off the list and I've definitely had a few of you click the red X in the top right hand corner. Still, for all intents and purposes, were Apple Jack human and not a pony--which is what hurts her placement on the list--she definitely is somepony a girl could look up to. Apple Jack is hardworking, honest, deeply cares about her family, and while she has a stubborn streak, that's probably the LEAST critical flaw a person could have if you have to compare it to: crippling shyness (Fluttershy), arrogance (Rainbow Dash), being plain annoying (Pinkie Pie), grumpiness (Twilight), and being a total drama queen (Rarity). Many people might disagree with this decision, ultimately believing Celestia and Twilight to be better role models. I argue that Celestia's less than stellar reputation amongst fans has some precedent and Twilight, while arguably only as flawed as Applejack, misses the hard-working--by comparison--and having deep connections with their family--seriously when was the last time Twilight wrote a letter to her folks? And need I remind anyone Shining Armor was almost invented for the Season 2 finale.
And before anyone gets on my case about the whole "deep south" thing, need I remind everyone that while the accent is stereotyped, none of the really harsh traits that should apply from this are drilled into the character. Applejack is still fairly intelligent, doesn't have buck teeth and while yes she lives on a farm, hey it's a career and she loves it. And there ain't no shame in that.









NUMBER 9
Teresa by Vesaka
Teresa from Claymore

A shock to many, I'm sure given my oh so wonderful love for the character. But, if I'm being frank, Teresa's connection to Clare is the only thing making this list. Other than that she is rude, enjoys terrifying others and somewhat lawless. That said, if I were to say that "Maternal instinct is something every woman should employ" that'd sound wrong phrasing it that way. And, as I already said, there is almost nothing good--aside from the badassery--to Teresa's character in terms of being a role model. Aside from being a Mama Bear and a badass, Teresa has very little going for her. And...yeah...that's it...next number.









NUMBER 8
Erza Scarlet by ioshik
Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail

As far as being on this list is concerned, Erza is a mixed bag. While Mashima DOES use her for cheap fanservice, that's more an author thing than it is a "character" thing. And if we really get into the finer points of what's character-driven and done for the sake of "sex appeal" there's a wide berth for arguing and a lot of it, I feel, is in Erza's favor. That said, when your character revolves around being in touch with your feminine side--and I mean REALLY being in touch with it i.e no modesty--you tend to lose SOME fans. Personally, I'm fine with this. Erza being openly okay with being in the nude is perfectly all right since it's HER decision. She also has one of the most heartrending backstories I know of and manages to pick herself up and be awesome after that period in time. 
What hurts Erza on this list is ONE THING.
*flame shield up*
Her relationship with Jellal. BY ITSELF that relationship turns Erza--regardless of how you perceive it--from a self-independent woman to a woman who "needs a man in her life" and the uses OF Jellal and their interactions do not portray Erza as being the one in control of that relationship. I get that they used to be friends and all that, but it's just done BADLY. If you want to make it believable that Erza and Jellal can work without detracting from Erza's independence or making it a "sexual thing" you might want to take cues from the NEXT person on this list.









NUMBER 7
Mikasa by oceantann
Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan


Mikasa is everything pre-character development Erza was without overdoing it. Mikasa is a nightmare to her foes, but it's clear she's still a loyal soldier with some care if her comrades die. It's just that Mikasa has a firm heart of steel and a drive towards victory. Where she deviates from Erza is in a few categories. 1. While Erza's outfits being stripperific are a character choice, the objectification of Erza by the author DOES hurt her by comparison to the much flatter, modestly dressed Mikasa. 2. Mikasa is a much more NORMAL person than Erza and while normalcy =/= better writing, it certainly helps Mikasa's case and makes her a much more believable character. 3. Mikasa's relationship with Eren can be gender flipped on either party and I'd still find it just as believable and not squicky in the slightest. (I.e if Mikasa was a guy the yaoi wouldn't bother me). This is because Eren is responsible for being an "emotional living crutch" to Mikasa, much in the same way Homura is obsessed with Madoka and Yuno is obsessed with Yukiteru. The thing is, Mikasa never crosses to Yandere territory, which is a VERY good thing. 
The reason Mikasa suffers on this list though is because that Heart of Steel came at a HUGE price and I would never want to suggest that a character should be emotionally dead inside in order to be a good role model for women. A lot of characters higher up manage to be badass without needing aforementioned emotional crutch or even having emotional scars. Still, with everything that she is, Mikasa is worth looking up to if you happen to be a teenage girl. 









NUMBER 6

Cornelia li Britannia from Code Geass

Egads, another shocker I'm sure given Cornelia of the Defection. However, I must remind myself to separate canon from fanon. Cornelia is a ruthless military commander who, much like Applejack, deeply cares about her family. Cornelia's concern for Euphemia is staggering when she'll betray country and kin just to clear her name. She also achieves a rank I'd feel most women would be hard pressed to replicate, but its certainly an admirable goal if you happen to want to break out of traditional cultural values, becoming the Five-star general of a military branch is impressive. That said, when you lend yourself to being a ruler in a fascist society, possibly having a bodyguard crush--again the Erza thing, but at least here it's clear the two are on equal footing--and having a distracting chest size...yeah points taken off if I can be petty (I kind of have to be at this point). Still, Cornelia is definitely a woman deserving of respect and admiration, but there are still 5 characters I can think of that make better role models.









NUMBER 5
Saber by ofSkySociety
Saber aka Arturia Pendragon from the Fate Series

Saber is the King of Britain. That should say it all really, but I'll elaborate. In a time period long before women were seen as equal class citizens, the fact that Saber can not only live, but rule in such a world is jaw dropping. Her regal appearance and her modest chest size certainly DO help this. Furthermore, Saber has an ideology I can feel comfortable agreeing with when it comes to Lawful Good characters. She's not Suzaku levels of stupid and while Alexander calls her naive, Saber is at least strong in her convictions and doesn't let it bother her until someone of equal ideology lets her see the error of her ways--and it could've just as easily been Rin and not Shirou. Hell, Saber is actually resistant to warming up to Shirou in the original given the "insults to her honor". Hell the one moment that really stands out to me from the anime--when Shirou kisses Saber--still has her stand rigid against such a thing. While it's clear her feelings by the end, it's a lot more believable of a relationship than Erza/Jellal. Furthermore, it's not NECESSARY for her to even get involved in the romance depending on the route you take for the VN. So, if we're talking UBW or HF, Saber remains a strong independent woman that don't need no man.









NUMBER 4
maya kumashiro sitting on a guy legcross reading by lynpiececraft
Maya Kumashiro from Occult Academy

The selected picture is not only a faithful representation of Maya's relationship with the series' supporting protagonist Bunmei, but a faithful representation of how I wish Erza would be with Jellal. (Sorry I know I'm harping, but that really DOES piss me off). While yes Maya and Bunmei's present self (watch the anime) shack up by series end, no point is every made of their relationship other than subtle hints and you can tell Maya has him pussy whipped GOOD. Furthermore, Maya is attractive without overdoing it. Her chest is large, but a reasonable size and despite her age, is able to embellish a power of fantasy of running a school--something I think all of us have indulged in at least once in our lives. While she has a fair bit of daddy issues, Maya is never betrayed as someone seeking her father's recognition, only hating the fact that he wasn't a better father and leaving it at that. Hell, Maya should, for all intents and purposes, be at the top of this list. However, a few things stop her: 1. Her attitude. Maya might be strong and independent, but good lord is she an ice queen. I'd like to think that women should be allowed to show their emotions without having to look so fierce. 2. While the romance is spades better than others on this list, it's still a romance. Maya didn't need it to be shackled to her character. 3. While her outfit is definitely modest without the slightest bit of cleavage, that doesn't stop the character from oozing sex appeal and aside from a school uniform she never wears anything else. "mature fanservice" but fanservice nonetheless. 4. It is Bunmei who ultimately saves the day in a moment that I'm STILL not sure if it's awesome or dumb. That said, Maya is increasingly growing on me as a favorite character. Expect to see her on my 2015 favorite females list. 









NUMBER 3

Integra Fairbrook Windgates Hellsing from Hellsing

Integra stands above Cornelia on a few factors. 1. The organization she runs is NOT part of a fascist state. 2. You actually see Integra being smarter and just as badass as the "men" around her. To quote Anderson from Abridged "By Jove, you fucking header of a woman! You're surrounded by fifty nazi vampires armed literally to the teeth, and what do you do?! You get out of your FUCKING car, pull out your sword, cut off one of their heads, "Come at me, you Kraut shits!" NO WONDER Alucard wants to plow that virgin soil! I'M THINKING ABOUT GROWIN' SOME FLOWERS MYSELF!" 3. Much more modest apparel and chest size (it matters at this point). Some might say that everything that Integra is--including being forced to remain a virgin to keep control of Alucard--automatically makes her qualified for the top of the list. I say: bollocks. There are two factors, for me, that prevent that. 1. and this is brought up many times, Integra looks like a man. Are we implying all women should be butch? 2. She smokes. It's been proven time and again that smoking is bad for your health. It's not cool and to have our kids look up to a smoker is a bad thing. For these two things alone, I cannot, in good faith, put Integra any higher than number 3. But, considering her competition, you'll probably understand WHY.









NUMBER 2
Olivier Armstrong by VioTanequil
Olivier Armstrong from Full Metal Alchemist

Olivier has all of the good points that Cornelia, Integra and Maya do and absolutely NONE of the drawbacks. There's not even a HINT of romance in her character. She is BAR NONE THE strongest female character in FMA as she's introduced long after Lust is dead and buried and manages to make the poster boy for Rated M For Manly, her brother, cry like a little bitch whenever they fight as she curbstomps him into submission. While I gave Maya a penalty for being a bitch and a hardass, it's befitting of Olivier's occupation. She stands tall as the leader of a very snowy outpost. Also, unlike Integra, Olivier could never be mistaken for a man given the lipstick and the way her hair is drawn. This woman SCARES me, which is more than I can say for pretty much anyone else on this list. However, even with all this said, even with Olivier being a strong independent woman that don't need no man, coming from a nice family, being a good family member and being an honest, hard working individual, if a bit rough around the edges, that icy personality is quite literally the ONLY thing keeping her from the top spot. Because while her competition certainly lacks being a badass, they are, ultimately, the better role model. Still, that doesn't stop Olivier from being worth looking up to. Hell, I think if most women followed her example when trying to find someone to look up to, they wouldn't be as cold as her unless they're a feminazi, but even then Olivier treats her soldiers with the respect they deserve. If Oliver was truly a radical, none of her soldiers would be men. She's in charge because she's awesome and they're her soldiers because she believes in their skills. 









So I bet a bunch of you are wondering who's left. 
Let me put the obvious question to rest and say no it is not a Bleach character.
And that leaves you all now with a big pickle. 
I've already used Teresa, Maya, Olivier, Integra, Mikasa and Erza, some of the FINEST women fiction have to offer.
Well folks, if you REALLY know me, you might see this coming.

Otherwise, get ready because

It's





NUMBER 1
Raine Sage by migs308
Raine Sage from Tales of Symphonia


I think I just lost almost everybody except the ToS fanbase. For all intents and purposes, Raine is DESERVING of this number one spot. She's not a favorite character. She's not a "badass" character, but HOT FUCKING DAMN ON A TIN PLATE does Raine DESERVE respect, admiration and, above all, is a PERFECT role model. 
Let's start with her backstory. Raine was abandoned as a child by her mother who wanted to give Raine a better chance at life. And what does Raine do about this? Well, she devotes her life to archaeology, searching for her mother and the ruins she was abandoned by. And, in the process, raises her baby brother Genis as if he was her own son. Raine is a half-elf, i.e the bottom of the caste. Despite this, she is a WELL-RESPECTED TEACHER AND SCHOLAR in her home country. Given the racial bigotry of half-elves, this speaks well for not only women but MINORITY GROUPS! So yes, regardless of your race, even in a country against your race, your hard work CAN pay off if you work hard enough. That is the message being sent here folks. 
Furthermore, the above picture is Raine's default outfit. It's modest. It's unrevealing and her chest size is AVERAGE. Another good point. 
Raine also is a healing expert, but she also is an expert in light magic. So she's not exactly helpless to say the least and in the OVAs actually smacks creatures in the face with her staff. Do not underestimate this woman in a fight. 
You might recall that I penalized Mikasa for being dead inside and having a tragic backstory. While Raine certainly suffers from a tragic past, her personality certainly doesn't let it show. Raine has more emotional depth to her than any character on this list. She's rolled with the punches and doesn't let it bother her in public. We can add strong-willed to her positive list of traits. 
But, of course, Raine is not perfect. She has a crippling fear of deep water--she nearly drowned as a child--and she suffers from "ruin mania". Basically, you take her to a museum, she squees like a fan girl. Also, if Genis is to believed, Raine sucks at laundry. Defying yet ANOTHER gender stereotype. 
...all right, all right, I'll stop avoiding the elephant in the room. Raine can't cook. Like, for all intents and purposes, her cooking can make you sick. Again, defying stereotype. 
And, to top it all off, unless you, the player, make Lloyd chase after her, Raine does not have a romance option CANONICALLY. There is certainly the portion of the fanbase that sees her well with Kratos or Regal, but canon has repeatedly taken pot shots at the latter and I really don't get the former. But that's another matter. 
And, if we go by the sequel, Raine is 24, well above the age most people would be playing the game and certainly still an achievable age for young girls. In the original, she's 22. 
And what does she do for a living? She's a teacher. Yup. She uses her extensive knowledge to teach others in order to pay the bills. She is a fair teacher that doesn't accept bullshit--often punishing the idiot hero Lloyd for his incompetence with chalk, buckets and sometimes physical abuse. She also is a mama bear to her students if Tales of Symphonia 2 taught me anything. To say Raine has mommy issues would be putting it mildly, but that only is obvious if you sidequest the shit out of the series. 

So, what have we learned to summarize? Raine is a strong-willed, independent woman with a tragic past that can't cook or do laundry, doesn't have a love life, has notable flaws of having a crippling phobia and a unhealthy obsession--something most real-life people have--and copes with it as a person. The subtext provided with her situation makes her a great role model for minorities as well. She's intelligent, she emotes, and she can both relieve damage AND repair it. 
Raine encompasses it all and to say she's anything less is defamation of character and pure bullshit. I respect this wonderful character and if you haven't played Tales of Symphonia you are doing yourself a disservice. The game was re-released on the PS3 at the start of this year and it deserves to be played. 


Now if you'll excuse me, I have a finale to finish. 



Ja ne!
NOTE: IF YOU WANT TO BE IN THE DARK AS TO WHO IS UP NEXT IN THE SERIES. DO NOT EVEN GLANCE AT THIS JOURNAL. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

So I've decided to split my who would win journal into 3 separate journals. Because Who Would Win will become an ever evolving force and will eventually exceed DA's file size for journals, I felt the need to separate things before it became an issue while I actually have the time. 

This journal is dedicated to listing all of the upcoming rounds of WWW. When a new round is complete it will be copypasted over from the "Future Rounds" entry.

Because I might re-use fighters from previous matchups and may actually SAY who won and who lost in each match-up you have been warned if you haven't seen the previous entries and, really, why wouldn't you?

From now on I will not be updating the original Who Would Win, just these three

Along with each future round there is also a "Reason for Doing" and my "Preliminary Predictions"

My "Reason for doing" explains why I want to do the fight and why it's a good matchup my "Preliminary Predictions" are who I think is going to win based on my initial findings. Whether or not I am correct or not will only be determined when I post the fight and my research is finished.

Do not use my "preliminary predictions" as an idea of who's going to win/lose. I have been WRONG a few times already with my preliminary predictions and other times I've thought that some victories would be a cakewalk and that usually winds up not being the case. 
However, my FINAL PRODUCTION is ALWAYS my choice and a choice I will stand FIRMLY behind. 

So without further ado:

COMING SOON TO WHO WOULD WIN!


24th Round: Non-lethal Girl Fight
Sakagami Tomoyo by KiteH4cK :iconvplz: :iconsplz: The ICE Witch by isshi
Tomoyo Sakagami                               Sen Yarizui

REASON FOR DOING: Both of these two women kick lots of ass and are a favorite from their respective canons

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Tomoyo has been stated to be on par with a boy whose strength and skill are on par with Ichigo BEFORE he ever got his powers. Sen has a spotty win/loss record. Until I rewatch their action scenes I'll let you do the math.


25th Round: The popular blonde gunslingers

Rushuna by G-Xek :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Vash the Stampede by DeEtta
Rushuna Tendo                             Vash the Stampede


REASON FOR FIGHTING: Rushuna is often referred to as "The Female Vash". So, which one is actually the better gunslinger?

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: To keep things safe, I am only using the anime variants of both characters. This will also be one of my non-lethal battles only because Rushuna hasn't killed before so we don't know how she would react to committing the act. However, she and Vash are so far against killing that because I'm not Death Battle, I will not, on good faith, do that to their character. Even with that said, even if this was a lethal showdown, the outcome wouldn't be any different. The winner of this showdown in my current opinion will be: Rushuna. For several reasons: quicker reload time, carries more ammunition on hand, more willing to return fire and--because she's up against Vash--she's a girl. Rushuna's objective will have her wind up getting close to Vash (physically) and wind up using her own looks to her advantage as she does several times in the anime. Vash, pervert that he is, will fall for it hook line and sinker because he always sees the good in people. 


26th Round: Rated M For Manly Fist Fight
Hero of Love and Justice by LynxKano :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Armstrong by Acid-Geass
Bang Shishigami                                  Alexander Armstrong

REASON FOR DOING: I hate Bang and Armstrong scares the piss out of me. They're both loud, they're both manly. If I have an excuse to see them pummeled, I'll take it.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: There's a reason Armstrong is considered a walking artillery. No amount of nails and theme music power ups will change that.

27th Round: Paladin Battle
Artix Wallpaper by SourPlacebo :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Cecil by Aurumis
Artix Von Krieger                                      Cecil Harvey

REASON FOR DOING: Two of my favorite paladins

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Even considering recent developments in AQ, Artix is simply overpowered by Cecil's birthright. No amount of bad puns will be saving him, though his auto-revive MIGHT help him win the day.

28th Round: Breaking the 4th Wall

Deadpool 05 by ReillyBrown :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Epic Richard by Kinotastic
Deadpool                                               Richard

REASON FOR DOING: These two would be the absolute best of buddies if they met because they have the same sense of humor, but there's one problem: Richard kills kids. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: My bets are currently on Deadpool because of his healing factor and teleport belt. Richard lacks both of these abilities.


29th Round: Shock and Awe
Fairy Tail Laxus Dreyar 286 - Colored by Darkraigirl94 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Negi Springfield by dra2k4
Laxus Dreyar                                     Negi Springfield

REASON FOR DOING: I needed a good lightning brawl

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Laxus can eat lightning. It matters only if Negi's other magic will help him overpower Laxus and his lightning used defensively.

30th Round: Playing with Fire
 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Dragneel by Kristallin-F
Portgas D. Ace                                    Natsu Dragneel

REASON FOR DOING: Same as above except for Fire.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Well Natsu isn't above eating other living beings if they're on fire and Ace is narcoleptic. That should say it all really.

31st Round: Super Brawler Fist Fight 
Synch the Tempest by Mutenroushi :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Grimmjow by NestorZeel
Sync the Tempest                   Grimmjow Jaegerjaques

REASON FOR DOING: I wanted an excuse to put Sync in one of these. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Sync might be quicker with his hands, but Grimmjow is tougher and can fly. 

32nd Round: Fight of Fans
Mai Shiranui by Kawa-V :iconvplz: :iconsplz: 
Mai Shiranui                                                 Due Flabellum

REASON FOR FIGHTING: SNK wasn't a part of Project X Zone (sadly) and when I think fan fighters, Mai immediately comes to mind. With the inclusion now of Due from aforementioned game, it's fire against wind. Due will either feed Mai's flames or snuff them out. Also, both of them are bouncy.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: I only know of Mai what Death Battle taught me. Due is only from one game entirely and without any cutscene feats all I can say is that Mai better wow me with her skill because Due is not only cunning but that is one goddamn big ass Tornado


33rd Round: Dark-skinned Speedsters

Yoruichi by Azley :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Saya by bunny15539
Yoruichi Shihoin                                  Saya


REASON FOR FIGHTING: Both are dark-skinned hot babes that love to tease the guys. Let's make them fight. They're also both older than they appear. MUCH older.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Yoruichi is not only out of practice, but Saya has her beat by several hundred years of experience. The woman not only has a gun, but also 3 katanas each with a different element. She can also poison people. Kubo better show us the upper limits of Yoruichi's skills or she may find herself on the wrong end of Saya, which is bladed and fully loaded.


34th Round: Splash Mountain

Fairy Tail: Juvia by Areelun :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Waterbender Katara by nargyle
Juvia Lockser                                           Katara

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Two high level water users. While many will think this is Juvia's fight to win because she can BECOME water or might actually BE water, that could be shooting herself in the foot because it would mean that no matter what she does, Katara could manipulate her whole being.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Katara's blood bending aside since I've yet to see it (only saw only so much of Avatar this fight will make me watch the whole series), while Katara will be able to bend anything Juvia can throw at her and visa versa, Juvia has an immunity to most of Katara's arsenal, but the same cannot be said for the water bender herself. Again, I need to watch all of Avatar, but nothing I know of or have heard of suggests that even though Katara can manipulate water that she herself is immune to it. 


35th Round: Summoning Circuit

Lucy Heartfilia by Shinoharaa:iconvplz: :iconsplz: Clumsy Assassin by chocographs
Lucy Heartfilia                       Sheena Fujibayashi

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Much more than Yuna (Final Fantasy X), I find this fight to be a lot fairer since Lucy and Sheena can both fight even WITHOUT the use of their summons. They're also both particularly attractive

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Sheena has more versatility, better CQC and more experience, plus her rogue's gallery is a lot tougher than that of Fairy Tail's


36th Round: Holy Battle

Ill-fated girl- Colette by Aselea :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Selvaria by HO4HOj-OXOTHUK
Colette Brunel                                  Selvaria Bles

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Both characters are considered to be descended from angels. However, their personalities couldn't be different. They both have superhuman strength and sensory and it's a fight to see who the gods truly favor....metaphorically speaking of course. Don't let Colette's cuteness fool you, there's a reason Selvaria is fighting her and not Riela.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: I did some research. I feel horrible for Colette. The ToS fans, myself included, are going to HATE me.


37th Round: Gargantuan Goliaths

Godzilla by GENZOMAN :iconvplz: :iconsplz: 
Godzilla                                           Lord Valoth

REASON FOR FIGHTING: When Mechquest ended I wanted to do something more with Valoth. I decided Godzilla would be a good adversary

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Five words: Hail to the king baby.


38th Round: Shooter Showdown

Project x zone Haken browning Render by Redchampiontrainer01 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Vincent Valentine by BrianFajardo
Haken Browning                            Vincent Valentine

REASON FOR FIGHTING: I wanted to do a fight with Haken. This was my decision

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While my research is far from finished, Haken's Longtomb is what's going to be his "Ace in the Hole". Haken was built with superior genes to be a super soldier so he's more than a match for the laboratory built Vincent. Haken's skills give him considerable accuracy from his home saga and his own natural born willpower is what keeps him healthy in his universe. Most characters use white magic to restore their health, Haken just uses his own natural willpower. Even considering Chaos and Death Penalty, I'll need to see more FFVII footage before I consider that I'm not just being an Endless Frontier fanboy.


39th Round: Battle Armor Brawl

Master Chief by utilizator2 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Samus Aran by VariaZim  
Master Chief                                           Samus Aran

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Time to end this debate once and for all.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: As of right now I am on Samus' side, but that's subject to change as I do more research. The reason I say this is because of Samus' altheticism and mobility as well as her superior shielding. Even considering the bubble shield, Samus' morph ball can help her lay traps in areas the Chief can't get to and her Hyper Mode from Metroid Prime (I will be using EVERYTHING in the arsenal of BOTH characters) will lay a serious beatdown. While the Chief has considerable luck and will have the ability to find any weapon he could need, the fact remains is that Samus doesn't have to worry about amunition, has a scanner that reads enemy weak points, an x-ray scanner to VIEW said weak points and her high frequency nova beams, ice beam and 255 missiles. The chief isn't going to be overpowered, he's just going to be outsupplied. 

40th Round: Gynoid Battle Royal

Nu-13 by Eroji:iconvplz: :iconsplz:  
 Nu 13                                                  Aschen Brodel

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Much like Haken, I wanted to put Aschen in one of these. This was my selection

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Preliminary only in that my research on Nu isn't finished as well as the SRW series where Aschen's program originated so I can find out what she's made from. However, given what I've seen this is the 2nd closest battle I've done. Right now the ball is in Aschen's court and only barely so. 

41st Round: Battle of the Boobs


Satellizer el Bridget ~ Freezing by evitacarla  :iconvplz: :iconsplz:  Matsumoto Rangiku - 10th Squad by kurotsuchi-666
Satellizer el Bridget                                   Rangiku Matsumoto

REASON FOR FIGHTING: These blondes have the biggest busts in anime I know. This will define the term "Boobs of Steel" properly.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Satellizer is known as the untouchable queen and has a determination that is incorruptable. She has survived getting a leg chopped off and taken damage similar to what the Bleach cast has handled. Accel Turn will even keep her on par with Rangiku's Shunpo. That said, even all that considered, Rangiku is a professional with way more experience than Satellizer. Also, the Bleach universe law of reiatsu will minimize the damage Rangiku will take from Satellizer. Also, Rangiku is a vice-captain, she's so strong that at her full power she would negatively affect the living world. Satellizer will put up a good fight and her determination and willpower will keep her in for much longer, but Rangiku will get her to stay down. That's my current opinion.



42nd Round: Battle of the Brats


Annie and Tibbers [League of Legends] by pskibobby :iconvplz: :iconsplz: +Anise - AT+ by Sheena-X-Zelos
Annie & Tibbers                                   Anise Tatlin & Tokunaga


REASON FOR FIGHTING: Two pre-pubescent girls with giant plushies as partners. I can't stand either one of them. Let's make them beat the shit out of each other.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While Anise is at least twice Annie's age, Annie is a child prodigy, having obtained Tibbers when she was 2. Furthermore, Annie can summon Tibbers as much as she likes. If Anise loses Tokunaga he can't come back. Furthermore, Anise has no skill in combat without Tokunaga while Annie has no problem going solo. 


43rd Round: Plant People


poison ivy by Jericho0fox :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Zyra, Rise of Thorns by Kittrix
Pamela Isley (Poison Ivy)                       Zyra, Rise of the Thorns

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Zyra borrows her inspiration from Poison Ivy, but can she beat her?

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: None at the moment. My research on Ivy is stunted and for me to say anything right now would only be me talking as a biased fanboy of my favorite League of Legends female that I want to do naughty things to. It all hinges on whether or not Ivy has better control over plant-life than Zyra. Barring that, Zyra will take home the victory


44th Round: League of Ebil

Zorbak Picture 2 by Kabroz :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Veigar by alben
Zorbak                                                   Veigar


REASON FOR FIGHTING: Zorbak is Ebil and Veigar isn't taken seriously. Do not let that picture fool you. This will be certainly one of the most comedic battles I've done

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While Zorbak certainly can summon the legion of the dead, that's just farming for Veigar, which every leaguer knows you do NOT want to do. Once Baleful strike is powered up, Veigar can do a lot of damage to Zorbak. While the blue rat can heal himself, he also has a high intellect, which makes him vulnerable to Veigar's Primordial Burst. For once, Veigar will have a legitimate victory. It's unfortunate that victory will be over the Team Rocket equivalent of the AQ universe.


45th Round: Guns of Light

ToA Legretta by Sylph92 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: League of Legends Lucian Render by RikkuTenjouSs
Legretta the Quick                            Lucian

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Legretta is a light-based fighter with dual handguns that fire fragments of light. She is quick on her feet and one of the best fighters in the Six-god Generals. Lucian fires laser blasts from his handguns and has much the same fighting style as Legretta.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Without knowing what Legretta's skills are (not that she could have many being an antagonist) Lucian's guns are much more powerful than hers and his "The Culling" is more than a match for Legretta's "Prism Ballet". It only matters now who the quicker shot is and which one of them can move faster and which one of them can take hits better. Also, Lucian's attacks consume mana while Legretta never seems to run out of ammo. This is also a factor to be considered.


46th Round: World devouring abominations

Frieza by Smoker1988 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Cho'gath Render by SilentLipz
Frieza                                              Cho'Gath

REASON FOR FIGHTING: I wanted an excuse to use Cho'Gath. Apparently his Feral Scream's output at full power is reason enough to let him fight this MOFO.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Cho'Gath's Feral Scream, according to his Battlecast prime skin, reaches Exotons of force. While all leaguers have some limitations or another while fighting, Cho'Gath not only has been willfully limited for his own amusement, but he also isn't taking the fighting seriously. the league THINKS they have him under lock and key, but he will kill them all if they do not prove entertaining. Like all void creatures--and like Kirby--Cho'Gath adapts to whatever he can consume, a bit of munching on Frieza's flesh and Cho'Gath can adapt better to Frieza's attacks. Since Cho'Gath will already be at full power from the onset, it's only a matter of time before the world conqueror is feeling the hurt. Sadly, Frieza can blow up planets willingly and even though Cho'Gath can live in a boundary between dimensions (which means he can breathe in space), all the power in the world won't stop this world devouring abomination from complete and total disintegration. 


47th Round: Lunacy

Princess Luna by Isegrim87 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Diana by justduet
Princess Luna                                           Diana

REASON FOR FIGHTING: I had Celestia fight before, people have asked me to use Luna. I want the Scion of the Moon to fight it's Equestrian ruler. When Diana sees what Luna is, she'll freak.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Like with Celestia, it's obvious Luna will have high level magic like beams, temperature control with an eclipse, and also dark magic with her nightmare moon form. There's also her own hindquarters and her ability to fly to consider as well. Diana, being just a normal human with considerable power will be hard pressed to fight a magic-using flying horse...er pony. However, I predict that this will wind up turning out like Bison Vs Shao Khan. Diana, using moon magic isn't exactly the best idea against the one who manipulates the celestial body itself.


48th Round: Machinations

AE IOTW Carl Clover by Gemini-kun :iconvplz: :iconsplz: orianna by justduet
Carl Clover                                              Orianna

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Both Orianna and Nirvana have similar connections to the humans they're based from. Ball and Carl are just add-ons even though Carl will be doing most of the fighting

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While Orianna certainly has free reign while Nirvana follows Carl's orders. Because Ball is just an object and not a living being, Orianna can get two-pronged while Carl and Nirvana have teamwork on their side.


49th Round: Mad Science

Mayuri Kurotsuchi by StormFedeR :iconvplz: :iconsplz: mundo to strong for you by jouste
Mayuri Kurotsuchi                             Doctor Mundo

REASON FOR FIGHTING: These twisted sons of bitches see all the world as a lab experiment, including themselves

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: .....................I want Mundo to win. I really want Mundo to win, but he doesn't have the proper tools for dealing with Mayuri's arsenal. Sadistic fuck though he is, Mundo doesn't have any drugs to counter Mayuri's Ashisogi Jizou to get his limbs working again and Konjiki Ashisogi Jizou will just make things even worse for poor Mundo. Even considering Burning Agony, Mayuri never fights at close range and always uses trick after deception to win. If he doesn't outright kill the sadomasochistic fuck he'll take him as a lab experiment.........at Mundo's own request. 

50th Round: Master of the Sword
Erza Scarlet - Heaven's Wheel by zakilliet :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Roronoa Zoro by Nouin
Erza Scarlet                                        Roronora Zoro

REASON FOR DOING: Time to shut the fandom up once and for all. With Mashima taking inspiration from One Piece and Oda being his idol and all, has the student bested the master or is the king of storytelling also the king of character creation?

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: At present the ball is in Erza's court. I need to see what Zoro's upper limits are before I render a final verdict. To make things fair I will ONLY be using manga abilities. The anime will only be used to verify a character's skill, but will not be used to determine it.


51st Round: Personal Nostalgic Battle

Danny Phantom by PinkyPhantom :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Starfire by 0XsarachanX0
Danny Phantom                            Starfire

REASON FOR FIGHTING: I have wanted to do this one ever since I thought of it just because of the nostalgic value it holds to me

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: So that Danny does not become one with the other side in record time, I'll only be using Starfire from the cartoon series that aired on Cartoon Network. THE GOOD ONE! Even with that said, the poor ghost boy, I don't think, stands a chance. Danny's intangibility and invisibility will certainly keep Star at bay for a while and his body merging powers might help him make Star self-destruct, but Starfire is a lot faster than Danny, has more than enough in her arsenal to keep HIM at bay. Plus, Star's stamina is a lot better than his. Although her Tamaranian strength will avail her little given Danny's intangibility, it's her alien durability and control over her powers that will win her the day. Danny, even by series end, still struggles to maintain in his ghost form (Just look at the movie with Freakshow where he transforms in front of his entire school). Danny's Ghostly Wail, though a powerful last resort, is non-lethal even to his own enemies so it's likely it won't be enough to kill or incapacitate Starfire for long. Even if he could take over Starfire's body, her willpower wouldn't allow him to stay in it long enough to do any real self-damage. Still, the fight is going to be worth it JUST to see Danny take over yet another girl's body on purpose. 


52nd Round: An idea half-owed to :iconsirarchibaldmapsalot: 

Mikasa by oceantann :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Simon Blackquill by SpiderZed
Mikasa Ackerman                        Simon Blackquill

REASON FOR FIGHTING: This fight was suggested to me.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: I'm going to rewatch a little of Attack on Titan and research Iajitsu, but this is going to be a case of losing the battle to win the war. Or, to put it another way, letting go of the early game, to turn the tide at the very end. Mikasa is going to dominate the battlefield right at the very start. Her maneuver gear will let her zip around the battlefield with ease, taking potshots at Simon as she zips right by him. However, Simon is said to be a proper wielder with a katana and so it wouldn't be a stretch to say he knows how to properly dodge an incoming attack. The man has reflexes enough to precisely slice a falling feather out of the air from halfway across a courtroom with his BARE HANDS! The real question isn't can he hold a candle to Mikasa's maneuver gear, but whether or not he can survive its advantage before he either cuts the cable or Mikasa runs out of gas. If it was Levi he was up against, the fight would be over faster than Simon could blink given Levi's experience. With Mikasa though, the girl is still a trained soldier, but also more on Simon's level. Her level however happens to be just a little too underleveled to actually pull off a victory. Mikasa is trained to fight 15-meter tall titans, not other humans. While Levi has the preciseness to properly cut down his own kin while moving at high speeds, there's nothing to suggest that Mikasa has the same. It's her inexperience and lack of tactical knowledge that will lose her the fight, but she will put up a good one to be sure.


53rd Round: Dark Magic

Syndra by Tropic02 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Rest by Shiso
Syndra, the Dark Sovereign                       Aversa

REASON FOR FIGHTING: These two have a LOT in common. They're both dark magic users, plucked from a village where they both were said to be considerably gifted in the ways of magic. Both of them also have white hair and a nice rack while wearing lots of leather. However, the core of their character is considerably different. Aversa (MAJOR SPOILER) seeks to atone for the things she's done while Syndra continues to chase ultimate power even to this day and will kill anyone who gets in her way. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Aversa might have command over Goetia, Mire, and her own specialty Aversa's Night, but Syndra has the telekinetic power to lift an entire castle. Furthermore, Syndra has the better accuracy game, could use Aversa's own mount against her and is the only one of the two with any ability to stun the other. 


54th Round: Dragons Again

Grima-the fell dragon by HunterandLoki :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Acnologia is screaming by diabolumberto
Grima, the Fell Dragon                               Acnologia


REASON FOR FIGHTING: Ever since Alduin Vs the Archdemon, a few people have asked me to use Acnologia. Well, I hope you're not disappointed.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While we still haven't seen what Acnologia is truly capable of, like with Due, Grima only comes from one game and I've analyzed the shit out of him already. Acnologia, like Godzilla, is considerably lacking in size against his opponent, but we saw how well that worked out for the Archdemon now didn't we? However, Grima's massive size isn't the only thing he has over Acnologia. He has the mind of the game's best tactician and dark magic that spews 10 feet high and 25-30 feet forward. He also has his dragonskin to reduce damage and his forboding aura to nullify automatic counter attacks. Even the Divine Dragon power of Tiki is not ultra effective against this monster. Acnologia has MORE than the power to combat this behemoth, the real question is whether or not he has the other stats to match. 


55th Round: Armored and Cloaked Emperors

Doom by EspenG :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Darth Vader by 6kart
Doctor Doom                                   Darth Vader

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Both Doom and Vader have horrible burns and were forced to cover their faces. They also have similar histories. They are both high ranking villians. Doom is the ruler of Latveria and Vader is the leader of Emperor Palpatine's forces. Both wear a cape and both wear a helmet. And both have similar secondary powers outside Doom's doom bots and Vader's light saber

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Vader's lightsaber is more than capable of slicing through Doctor Doom without effort. However, that's only if he gets the chance. Considering Doom's affinity for Doom bots and higher strategic mind there's not a high chance of Vader surviving long enough to make sure that his lightsaber kills the real doom. Vader's force powers will only avail him enough to keep Doom at bay, which is more than can be said for a lot of people that you could put up against Doctor Doom. 


56th Round: Spider People

Elise The Spider Queen by BenJi-XD :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Spiderman by Alentrix
Elise, the Spider Queen                            Peter Parker, the Spiderman

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Elise is just like Spiderman only female...except she's more of a spider than he is. She's also a mage and she can use's a spider's toxin and even BECOME a giant black widow spider. Also, since Spidey's spider sense is apparently inherent from actual spiders then it stands to reason that Elise would have one too. This would make her one of the toughest enemies that Spidey has ever faced and he's getting NO prep time.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Although Elise has more tricks up her sleeve, her durability leaves something to be desired. I need to do more research on neurotoxin and spider venom and Spidey's resistance to such things, but right now my money is on the web head for hand-to-hand advantages and so much durability it makes Elise look like a poppable balloon.



57th Round: Stoic badassery (requested by :icongreatkingrat88:)

Byakuya Kuchiki by Nouin :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Sesshomaru by SatoshisDarkchan
Byakuya Kuchiki                                       Sesshomaru

REASON FOR FIGHTING: 
:icongreatkingrat88: :iconsays3plz: Hei d00d, these two gais are so similar to each other. I want to see them fight. 
:icondraconichero18: :iconsays3plz: Holy crap they are. And you know...this fight looks pretty even. This is totally worth doing.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: It'll take me a while to comb back through Bleach and then spend time wagering tactics and X-factors (especially where Tenseiga is concerned) but right now I'd say Byakuya has an advantage. Sesshomaru's best weapon, Bakusaiga, won't work tremendously effectively against something like Byakuya's Senbonzakura Kageyoshi since they aren't part of Byakuya's body and are just a bunch of tiny blades. In Shikai, Byakuya will never be able to handle Sesshoumaru. He'll need Bankai. The problem is Byakuya has range and versatility and when you have options, you have a victory. Even if I allowed Sesshomaru to have Meidou Zangetsuha for this fight, I don't doubt the outcome will be any different. Sesshoumaru has always been superior, never before has he fought an opponent he didn't consider beneath him. Byakuya was not only humbled by Ichigo but in recent times was shredded by his own weapon. Byakuya's best chance to kill Sesshomaru will be his Gokei Senbonzakura Kageyoshi. Of course, Sesshomaru has his own advantages as well. If he can get into close range--which Byakuya has admitted is Senbonzakura's weakness--he can easily win the fight since any of his deadliest attacks are instant kills if they land direct hits upon Byakuya and even he can't sustain his body with a giant dog yokai bite in his shoulder that is probably poisonous. Ultimately this battle might not even be decided by swords. And those are my current thoughts. 


58th Round: 

Ryuko Matoi by ComplexWish :iconvplz: :iconsplz: InuYasha Wallpaper by Arehina
Ryuko Matoi                                            Inuyasha

REASON FOR FIGHTING: Because I've wanted to put Ryuko in a fight for the longest time now ever since I saw Kill la Kill. I decided that Inuyasha would be her best opponent in terms of someone "on her level"

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: One thing worth noting is that Ryuko's scissor blade will easily be able to cut through Inuyasha protective robe just because of what it is. Ryuko's greatest strength is her ungodly durability (people who have seen the show will understand what I mean). Inuyasha's greatest weapon against Ryuko is the Meidou Zangetsuha and the diamond attack (forgot the exact spelling). The Dragon Scaled Tessaiga could also be a prominent factor since it's possible it might be able to absorb Ryuko's life fibers directly. Ryuko's other big advantage is speed since she can fly with the speed of what appears to be a jet engine and she can cover herself in spikes. Her battle with Inuyasha will no doubt be the toughest she's gone up against. For Inuyasha it will simply be a case of "Why won't you die?" This is probably going to be my favorite battle to write since, after doing my preliminary predictions Ryuko only BARELY WINS. Like we're talking Link Vs Cloud levels of BARELY WINS. Inuyasha might not be as strong, durable or fast as her, but anything he has in his arsenal can properly counter Ryuko's advantages, especially the Meidou Zangetsuha. Still, I have much research to do on this fight and I am definitely looking forward to it. 



59th Round: Overly Large Swords

Nightmare Soul Calibur 5 ill.. by Bride-Of-Nightmare :iconvplz: :iconsplz: 
Nightmare                                        Guts

REASON FOR DOING: I hear this one is a rather popular debate. I'm all for ending popular debates about characters I know.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: There's one important thing we have to remember about this fight: only one of our combatants is human. Nightmare is just a soul in a suit of armor...for the most part. Furthermore, Guts fights abominations like Nightmare all the time, but with the abominable power that is Soul Edge, could Guts' equipment actually trump one of the most powerful entities in the SC canon? Even if :iconbrickbreaker2222: will disagree with me (he's my co-researcher/writer) I say Guts could actually take this. Nightmare's only real advantage over Guts is the fact that his sword is sharper. Guts has every bit of extra strength than Nightmare, plus there's his literal hand cannon. Also, if Guts managed to defeat Nightmare's body, the chances of him getting possessed by Soul Edge are low since he repels demons and the like from his body on a regular basis. True, Soul Edge is on a whole different level, but the chances are significantly lowered. Furthermore, Guts' tactics are a lot wiser than Nightmare's who is pretty much a lot less intelligent than many of Guts' former enemies. And that's not even considering Guts having a pyrric victory by using the power of his Berserk Armor. Ultimately though I need to do more research on Nightmare, but I'm currently under the impression that Guts has what it takes to win. 



60th Round: Aliens Among Us

Xenomorph by RoyDante :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Kha'Zix, the Voidreaver by LeFreaks
Xenomorph                                 Kha'Zix

REASON FOR DOING: Kha'zix is an expy of the Xenomorph. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Before anyone asks: no, I don't intend to do a battle between Rengar and the Predator. The Predator is wearing futuristic armor, has superior weaponry and superior range. Rengar's only ranged weapon is a bola. The furry hunter is SCREWED. On the flip side though, Kha'zix, while better armed than the Xenomorph at a glance, struggled to actually defeat Rengar, a point against the void creature. And, as we all know, good old acid for blood is NOT to be trifled with. That said, I'm presently giving this to the Xenomorph. I need to do more research sure, but that thing is NOT nice.


61st Round: Demon Hunters
DANTE by BADCOMPZERO :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Lady in Red by simplicitybc2000
Dante                                                    Mana Tatsumiya

REASON FOR DOING: I wanted to give Dante a chance to redeem himself. I felt Mirajane would be the opponent best suited for him. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Based on what I know about both combatants, Mirajane has the close quarter's combat won out. I need to refresh myself to her limitations because if she can survive rockets she'll have an advantage. However, I need to do research on Dante's Majin form and how much of an advantage it would give him. Until such a time as I have finished my research, I'm throwing my hat into the ring for Mirajane. 


62nd Round: Red Head Assassin
Katarina by LeeJJ :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Black Widow - Natasha Romanov by Mazarinem
Katarina                                                               Black Widow

REASON FOR DOING: Both of these characters are assassins of the highest caliber in their respective organizations. They are also known for wearing black, skin tight outfits, and they have red hair. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: There's a reason Natasha Romanov aka Black Widow is known as "The Human Pretzel" amongst some fans. She's a contortionist and also adept enough in combat to consistently beat Captain America. While Katarina also contends with a large, muscled, dim-witted soldier, Natasha also has a larger bag of tricks and she has MUCH more fighting experience, not to mention early career efficiency. I mean there's a reason Katarina got that scar after all. While Katarina has SOME things going for her like the speed advantage, I think Natasha simply has her outgunned, quite literally in fact, but we'll see what my full research procures.



63rd Round: Swords and Sorcery

 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Robin - Fire Emblem Awakening by ricecakepanda
Luke fan Fabre                               Robin

REASON FOR DOING: While Luke technically doesn't have sorcery, he still has Fonic Artes, which, if Robin were to miss with his spells, will create fields of fonons during the battle, making this fight rather interesting. Also, Robin uses a magic sword while Luke's, though magically crafted possibly, has no range potential. Still, I really want to use Luke and this was the best I came up with. I originally thought Meta Knight, but since we know "he's a Kirby" it's really not fair...to Luke. No. Seriously. Go look up Death Analysis Kirby and you'll see just how much of a pummeling the puffball species can take. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Luke. While Robin DOES have magic and range potential on his side, Luke is just far more durable when you consider their respective canons. Even with Ignis, while I think Robin will put up a decent fight, I just feel Luke has a MUCH higher chance of winning one on one since almost all of FEA was centered around team efforts. Also, while I don't know if I'll be settling on male or female Robin it will hardly matter in the long run. Whatever helps me tell a story better will be what I settle on. Who knows, I might not even use the standard appearance for the character. 


64th Round: Back From the Dead

Aizen Sousuke by Tru-Colorz :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Terumi Hazama by Hellknight10
Sosuke Aizen                                   Yuuki Terumi

REASON FOR DOING: I think Aizen deserves a fair shake after he was obliterated by Dormammu. Terumi, for all intents and purposes I actually thought was going to WIN against Alucard until I did some research. So, since a few of my friends voted on it, here it is, a fight between two absolute assholes of equal caliber....oh who am I kidding, Terumi is far more entertaining and infuriating. But is he more powerful? Well, that's why we're here.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Terumi has no ready counter for Aizen's illusions. However, I don't think that should count him out of the fight immediately. After all, Aizen has to ACTUALLY GET TERUMI TO SEE HIS RELEASE to get Terumi to even by affected by Kyoka Suigetsu and I believe Aizen will have his hands full until the fight gets to that point. Even when it does, I still have to do a fair bit of research on Terumi because it's possible he could actually turn the tide despite Kyoka Suigetsu, but I'll have to see. Aizen's certainly no Alucard and Terumi is certainly no Dorm. However, in the end, both of these assholes deserve worse than the pain and suffering they'll be doling out to each other. Still, since I have to pick the best of the worst, as I already said: Aizen since Terumi has no readily known counter for Kyoka Suigetsu.


65th Round: Boss Rage

Tabuu by Lock-Wolf :iconvplz: :iconsplz: 
Tabuu                                                        Master Core

REASON FOR DOING: Tabuu was the Final Boss of the Subspace Emissary in Brawl. Master Core is the unique boss you face on intensity 5.1 or higher in Classic mode Smash Bros 4. As both characters are unique to the series and unless Smash Bros 5 includes both of them, it's likely they will never encounter each other. So that begs the question: which of these absolute cheap ass final bosses is stronger and more deadly?

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Tabuu has a lot more in his arsenal than Master Core and actually single handedly put down Master Hand. Master CORE is birthed from Master Hand or...something like that, I don't know. So, despite being newer, I don't think this cheaper boss is going to be able to party like its 2008. After all, there's a REASON you get 6 lives to beat Tabuu and only 2 to defeat MC. 


66th Round: Puzzle solving

Pf Layton and the D.Box by Katikut :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Kaito "Einstein" Daimon by Toshiharu
Professor Layton                                Kaito Daimon

REASON FOR DOING: After completing the Professor Layton crossover with Phoenix Wright I decided to have Professor Layton take a stand against a rival who is his equal in puzzle solving: Daimon Kaito from Phi Brain. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Since, obviously, neither character would kill the other and this is a "puzzle battle", the idea is that Kaito and Layton will have to compete against each other FOR THEIR LIVES! In short, some cartoonishly evil villain from the Phi Brain universe tricks Kaito and Layton in competing against each other in a Fool's Puzzle. For non-Phi Brain fans this means a puzzle in which the only reward for solving it is your life and failure to do so means death. The winner will be determined by "Who is better under pressure" "who is intellectually superior" "who has more experience solving puzzles" "the hardest puzzle both have solved" "the average difficulty of the puzzles both have solved" "who is more athletic". Even with my limited knowledge of Layton, I have no doubt that he'll actually manage to stay half a step ahead of Kaito. He's older, has more experience and MUCH calmer under pressure than Kaito. Of course, I've yet to see the professor in a life or death situation so this is subject to change. But, for Layton fans, this is a good sign if the limited knowledge I have of the character is superior to a character I'm more familiar with. It shows a lack of bias. 


67th Round: Hunter/Titans

Shingeki no kyojin by MicehellWDomination :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Gnar! by wolfpup026
Eren Jaeger                                    Gnar

REASON FOR DOING: Eren and Gnar both are hunters in their smaller state. In their transformed states, both of them lose all reasoning and logic and become mindless beasts hellbent on destruction.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Although Gnar is a resourceful hunter and has the strength to break True Ice, I don't think he has what it takes to defeat Eren. While he has range over Eren at the start with his boomerang, Eren has much more maneuverability with his 3D maneuver gear. The proper location for battle would be a forest, plenty of use for the gear and home field advantage for Gnar. In a close range battle, Eren, as a human, towers over poor Gnar and could punt the little thing if it got too annoying. Mega Gnar will certainly put up a hell of a fight as it tries to maul Eren's face off, but Eren's titan form is FIFTEEN METERS TALL. I'm PRETTY sure Mega Gnar is barely 4 meters. Eren has defeated titans of similar sizes without breaking a sweat. Also, Eren's titan form only has one weakness, which I'm not sure Gnar could hope to figure out. However, Eren is not a complete titan, so Gnar will definitely slow him down a bit given how savage and relentless he is. However, the biggest point AGAINST Gnar is that his transformation is temporary and comes in waves. Once Eren goes into titan form there isn't much that can stop him. It's kill or be killed. Score one for the human race in my opinion, but that remains to be seen. 


68th Round: Princess Grudge Match

:iconvplz: :iconsplz: :Rosalina: by Daniel-Link
Princess Daisy                              Rosalina

REASON FOR DOING: For those of you unfamiliar with Nintendo's history. A long time ago, Super Mario Land was released for the Game Boy. It introduced a new Princess into the mix Princess Daisy. She was later defined as "The Tomboy Princess" making her first console appearance on the N64 in Mario Party 3 as a playable character. She would later appear in many sports games and was even a palette swap for Peach in Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl. THEN, Super Mario Galaxy was released and introduced the lovely dame on the right, Rosalina. Since then, for reasons I'm not yet certain about--though I can kind of guess--Rosalina took the Mario fanbase by STORM. Rosalina has appeared in almost every Mario game since her release including Super Mario 3D world, Mario Kart Wii and the 3DS Mario Golf. And yet, Daisy is left hung out to dry in the more mainstream Mario titles, left to sit on the sidelines except in sports. Also, given a few of :icongabasonian:'s comics
this one: Forgetting Someone? by Gabasonian
and this one: Let's Smash Bros. by Gabasonian
You'd start to think that perhaps Daisy isn't too happy about this new female character who hasn't even been around for 10 years in the Mario fandom getting more attention that she deserves. It feels like Nintendo is neglecting the tomboy princess either by accident or on purpose. And, if the latter, I think it's high time this unknown rivalry came to head. This is a battle that MUST happen.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Since obviously Rosalina will be without her Luma aid for this bout, I can only take into consideration what she is capable of doing on her own. Well for one she can levitate and protect minature galaxies with that little wand of hers. And apparently she's fitting an entirely galaxy up her dress. (Don't ask). Still, Daisy still has years of experience with Tennis, Baseball, Mario Party and, most importantly of all, Soccer. Being a fan of both characters--albeit finding Rosalina far more attractive--I'm going to have to give the initial advantage to Daisy for simply being around longer. However, for all I know once my research is complete, Rosalina could prove too much for this grudge holding tomboy. However, even if this is a bigger power gap than Raiden and Thor, this is a spectacle to be sure. REGARDLESS of the outcome you can bet your asses I am going to do this.......unless Death Battle beats me to it.


69th Round: Boy geniuses 

DSC Dexter by PioPauloSantana :iconvplz: :iconsplz: 
Dexter                                                    Jimmy Neutron

REASON FOR DOING: These two are the biggest child geniuses of my childhood. Forget Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour. This is where the real action is.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Dexter. His shit actually works. 


70th Round: Fictional Fictional Heroes

 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Crimson Chin by RiddlerPower
Major Glory                                            Crimson Chin

REASON FOR DOING: I saw someone post this on DeviantART. If Death Battle doesn't do it, I certainly will.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: The Crimson Chin actually has experience fighting and defeating criminals on a regular basis and is an actual comic book character. Major Glory--while awesome in his own right--is a parody. Blatant hostess fruit pies ripoff much?


71st Round: Combat Sadism
Juri Han by KevinRaganit :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Minerva Sabertooth - Fairy Tail by linkzerx9
Juri Han                                          Minerva Orlando

REASON FOR DOING: Let's just say that after the rough treatment Juri got in One Minute Melee I wanted to use her for one of these now more than ever. Minerva is similar to Juri in terms of combat sadism and all around bitchy personality and if you stop and examine them they look just a TAD similar--though Minerva clearly has the bigger bust.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: That said, I feel I might just wind up making things even worse for Juri ^^;. Minerva's territory magic is no joke and will give her considerable control over the battlefield. That said, Minerva's territory magic requires line of sight and this being Juri, she'd go the extra mile to blind Minerva by digging her fingernails into her eye sockets. Juri's batshit craziness and more experience might give her the win, especially given her amazing track record of ass kicking. That said, until I do more research, I'm currently giving the edge to Miss Orlando.


72nd Round: Sword and Shield

 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: League of Legends: Leona by ClandestineKnight
Sir Tathlin                                 Leona

REASON FOR DOING: While Artix is much more the "paladin" type when compared to Leona, both Tathlin and Leona have similar movesets with shield bashing and solar rays and each is a respectable character in their own right with a history of another faction of creatures--demons for Tathlin, the Lunari for Leona--standing in their way with their own merits. Where they differ is that Tathlin is racist while Leona seems to act only because Diana won't listen to reason. A clash such as theirs would be a spectacle to see to say the least. One thing I CAN'T say about Tathlin is that he's sexist towards women.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Based on what I know about both characters, I think Tathlin has this simply for the more effective armor and movepool. 


73rd Round: Iron Maiden
Kagura Mikazuchi by onhy3 :iconvplz::iconsplz: Saber by ofSkySociety
Kagura Mikazuchi                          Arturia Pendragon

REASON FOR DOING: Before I begin let me say that since Fate/Zero made no effort to hide that Saber = Genderbent King Arthur and it's now more popular than the original 2006 Fate/Stay Night will ever be, I'm calling Saber as she is for announcement purposes, but I'll refer to her as Saber for the sake of ease. That said, Saber and Kagura are both stoic badass women of basically a showdown between the fantastical version of a Samurai and the fantastical version of a knight, the KING of knights to be exact. It's not a popular matchup sure, but the moment I thought of it, I felt it was too good an opportunity to pass up.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Kagura's gravity magic is going to make life HELL for Saber, but Saber is naturally tougher and faster than Kagura so she's going to need a handicap. Saber's Excalibur is also the perfect FOIL to Kagura's Archenemy as both are of comparable power. That said, I see the king of knights taking this bout simply because it's freaking Saber! 


74th Round: Need for Speed
Sonic by TheWax :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Rainbow Dash by BlackGryph0n
Sonic the Hedgehog                          Rainbow Dash

REASON FOR DOING: Because people won't shut up about this idea. 

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Do I REALLY need to say it? I love RD, she's my favorite member of the mane six, but there is NO WAY! IN HELL! that she is going to stand up to the almighty Super Sonic. Barring that transformation this fight is relatively fair since each combatant brings some unique abilities to the table like Rainbow Dash's trademark Sonic RainNuke, but Good LORD, is she screwed the minute Sonic ups the ante with the Chaos Emeralds. 

75th Round: The Chessmaster
 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: Yagami Raito by Hani7
Zero (Lelouch vi Britannia)                        Kira (Light Yagami)

REASON FOR DOING: There have been so many fanfics out there constructing a plot to pit these two anti-heroes against each other. Many people pick their favorite to win, many people sometimes make one or both act out of character in order to make ends meet for a victory by one or both that is purely plot constructed. But between both of these two masters of "all according to plan" which one is deadliest? Which one has the capacity to completely psych out the other and ultimately bring about the downfall of what many consider their greatest adversary.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: In a gladiatorial style matchup, Light stands no chance in hell. But what about a more underhanded matchup? These two are chessmasters, so it's better if we have them planning against each other than just standing in a field zero prep time. It basically forces me to ask who is the better researcher, the better critical thinker and who has the better chance of gambitting the other person into a corner and ultimately offing them. If we give the characters their whole arsenal at their disposal, I.e Lelouch has the black knights and Light is in with the police force (which he was after a certain time), it then falls on both protagonists to identify the true nature of the enemy culprit and then manage to corner and kill them. While this has the potential to swing in the favor of either protagonist, both of which having creative ways of ending the other, I'm still going to toss my hat into the ring with Lelouch simply due to the fact that Light really does have a 50% shot of killing Lelouch unless he figures out both names and while both have to unmask the other, if they have some way of narrowing their search, they could mow down the area and Light only has a small police force at his disposal, while Lelouch has an entire army with which to crush Kira. True, there are other factors I have to examine: which one is easier to unmask? When in continuity should this take place (since it will change the playing field considerably if Suzaku is Lelouch's enemy, L is skulking about and/or Misa is still the 2nd Kira or if Mikami is). And that's what makes it interesting. Could my favorite character of all time be outmatched? Let us see what fate foretells.


76th Round: Winner's Rematch

 :iconvplz: :iconsplz: 
Alucard                                                  Evangeline McDowell

REASON FOR DOING: :iconsephiroth12285: said this would be interesting to see. I agreed.

PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Let me start by saying that I DID say this was a "Winner's Rematch". Both Alucard and Eva won their respective battles and since both are vampires of the highest caliber they deserve to try and see which one is dominant. However, while it's true that Alucard beat Terumi, there's nothing I can think of to suggest that Eva wouldn't be able to do the same given her wide variety of abilities, so this fight is, in fact, fair. For me, this fight is going to boil down to firepower, something Alucard isn't exactly packing by comparison to Evangeline. Also, while he can't exactly be "killed" nothing says he can't be perpetually cased in ice. Depending on how the fight goes, I'd say Eva certainly has the larger bag of advantages, but I will definitely be hoping to make it as close as possible for Alley. Hell, I might even keep up the continuity from previous battles for the sake of a joke. Still, regardless of the outcome, this is the start of Season 4 and it's gonna be red hot. 


And that's currently all I have for now. At this moment in time I am currently taking no future suggestions until I've freed up some space in the queue. This journal is so large it almost hits DA's 60KB limit. So until then, keep an eye on the completed rounds to get your WWW fuel.
  • Mood: Pissed Off
Or alternatively Fate/Stay Night: Wheel of Fortune because the character limit for journals is too short to get the title AND that this is a fanfic brainstorm. 

ANYWAY

before I get into this, let me start by saying that I've read up on my Nasu lore and I some of it makes me want to DRY HEAVE!

Egads somebody was in a dark place when they made this series. This is Shonen? You're sure. 
My thanks to the 3 or so people who understand why I say that.

Anyway, in light of some rather agonizing facts about the Fate series and that it seems Type Moon isn't going to deliver what I was led to believe they promised: A Fate/Stay Night sequel that more closely follows the events of Fate/Zero. 

Hell, of all 3 routes of Fate, UBW and Heaven's Feel, I'd go out on a limb and say the selected route UBW is the LEAST connected to Fate/Zero most of all. Granted, it spends the most time diving into how Archer turned out just like Kiritsugu and is the ONLY route by which it's confirmed that Archer is future Shirou, but that alone is not important. 

What is important is Archer's grand stand against Berserker
Saber's final stand against Berserker and her destruction of Rider. 
and, of course, some finer points in dealing with Gilgamesh. 

And from what I understand, Heaven's Feel is even WORSE

While Rider winds up being the heroine given that she's under the employ of Sakura instead of Shinji, this changes the ball game completely since in UBW and Fate, Rider belongs to shitbag mcdouchenozzle. Furthermore I DON'T WANT TO SEE IT

EVER!

From what I've read Heaven's Feel's backhistory is that


Warning, the following few paragraphs may induce dry heaving from voluminous hatred of sensitive subjects. Reader discretion is advised


So we all remember Sakura's douchebag grandfather right? Well, apparently he lets Shinji rape her regularly and also abuses her so that Sakura can become a "false grail" and basically "take over the world"

Of--

NO!
NOOOOO!
We're are NOT making fun of this. 

So from what I've been reading Sakura goes from the moe, Shrinking Violet archetype to basically Stoic McBadass Yandere and apparently THIS IS CANON FOR ALL THREE ROUTES


WHAT IS EVEN THE HELL?
So, for two routes entirely Sakura has to live with these feelings of want that she is too meek to come out and do anything about because her grandfather and her adoptive brother are douchebags? (Oh and by the way I read that Shinji also rapes Rider. What is even the hell?)
AND NOTHING IS DONE ABOUT IT!




BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLSHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!


I call a large case of BULLSHIT!

I will NOT stand for injustice of this caliber. That is a big case of what the fuckness. 

The people at Type Moon who made the fate saga are sickos. Though that was evident enough with Blue Beard. 
THIS is why we need an amalgamation of all three routes, which, from what I've been reading regarding the fanfic Fate/Black Reflection, it's attempting to do. Kudos to that. 


Still, I can't let this stand alone. 

If not to write the actual story, I DO need to vent and propose an amalgamation.


And because this is me it's a crossover :D

With the Street Fighter Universe


ABABA

The Street Fighter UNIVERSE, not Street Fighter. I.e





I think it's time someone called in the "Heavy mystical support" don't you?

I haven't decided if the "master" is going to be Reiji or Xiaomu--because there's enough reasoning for it to be either one--but I know I'm giving them Rider because she constantly gets the shaft, which is why I'm happy to see her getting paired with Ichigo in FBR. Paired as in Master/Servant...not the other thing...though that would be nice too.



Of course, if Reiji and Xiaomu are involved, that also means that Saya has to get involved. She'll have Caster...sort of...or maybe completely.

Of course, given this is the street fighter universe and given a certain someone else ALSO lives in the street fighter universe or rather he EXISTED and we ARE taking heroes from HISTORY

Well...I like Hercules, but just imagine the dynamic between Ilya and this guy:

Asura by sandara

You may darken your pants now.




Anyway, the setup will look like this (thus far):


Saber (Arturia) / Shirou
Archer / Rin
Berserker / Ilya
Caster (Medea) / Saya
Rider (Medusa) / Reiji or Xiaomu
Lancer (Cu Cthulian) [probably botched the spelling there] / Shinji 
Gilgamesh / Kirie Kotomine

That just leaves Assassin. 
Since Caster has a proper master--Saya of all people--she would have no reason to break the rules and summon her own Assassin. 

Now, I could go with Hassan-i-Sabah, but I'm not for two reasons:

1. The guy was already in Zero and his Noble Phantasm was completely different. Consistency writers, please. 
2. His Noble Phantasm in Stay Night is far too broken.


So, that means I gotta come up with someone new to give Assassin to. 

Now, I could give it to Zouken the dirtbag, but I'm going to have Zouken break the rules himself. There are already two Archers what with Gilgamesh and Archer present. There's been two assassins before in previous series. The matous had Berserker last time. 
so, if I want to keep things fresh and new that means a new Caster, Rider, Saber or Lancer. 

However, since Zouken's a douchebag, I say we give him someone equally as much of a prick.


:iconlinkaraplz: :iconsaysplz: Hey if you're looking for evil I say there's not greater evil than the original evil. ANCIENT EGYPT!

*imperial march plays*

You know what, yes, I was thinking that exactly.




Behold Apophis, sometimes called Apep, the Egyptian god of darkness and chaos. A second caster per this fic and more than a match for Asura in my opinion given Asura has to be nerfed.


But back to the matter at hand, Assassin.

Obviously, he--or she--is going to Sakura. And for added fun, I'm even going to have it that someone took Sakura AWAY from her grandfather. 

:iconvogoshinki: if you've been reading this you can thank me later.



Now, granted, Chun-li isn't Sakura's caretaker--though that'd be awesome too--she simply brought Sakura elsewhere. 

Since mages apparently have something similar to diplomatic immunity, Chun-li brought Sakura to a house that's a little more moral than the Matou family.

Sakura, meet your new sister:



What?
You really can't classify the secrets of the Kouryuuji family as anything other than magic. 

And, to boot, Mii is still in high school, so I'm well within my rights to alter history a little--or give her a transfer--so that she can keep an eye on her little imouto. 

As for Sakura's servant, Assassin. 

Now I've put a bit of thought into things and I've come up with ideas, but ultimately I'll need help from my good friend :iconbrickbreaker2222: before I make an ultimate decision.

If I want to go for "an assassin with good intentions" then the best example I can think of is Marcus Junius Brutus.
However, if we want to go DARK and really fuck with some heads and show Sakura's instability: Jack the Ripper

Of course, I'm sure there are many noteworthy ancient serial killers and assassins just waiting to be plucked. 


Of course, while it was a noble gesture on Chun-lis part to bring Sakura to Mii......damage already done. Obviously Sakura would've been given the crest worm before the first Fuyuki fire ten years ago, so Chun-li would've only been able to get to Sakura after that, possibly recently. 


I would do my best to play up THIS version of the series in a similar manner to Fate/Zero: equal screen time for all characters and showing the motivations and desires of each servant, master and bystander. 
Hell, with some of the things I've set in motion it would be a really good fanfic. 

Just wish I had time to do it.


anyway, I have wasted enough time today. I need to be doing some actual writing for my book, which I hope you will all read and then call me a magnificent bastard XD


Ja ne!
I am both terrified and pissed off right now. 

Let's start with the latter. 

Oh by the way spoilers if you haven't seen Fate/Stay Night yet as this is going to spoil the entire episode and it's a really BIG shocker, which is why I'm that pissed. 


In the original Fate/Stay Night, the fight between Saber and Rider ultimately ending in Saber's use of Excalibur to destroy Rider and her noble phantasm utterly. Here, not only was Rider off-screened by episode 8, but she didn't even get to do much of anything, much less use her noble phantasm. 

I'm freaking mad! You RUINED one of the iconic scenes that made me love the original for shock death. 

That's just :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz: 


However, I'm also crapping my pants. 


The extent to which Rider's body was utterly mutilated is astonishing. The only person I know capable of such a feat is Berserker, but Ilya couldn't have been at the school. 

Everything suggests Caster to be the culprit, but the bodies of her victims aren't THAT mangled. Also, Shirou notes that she never left Ryuudo Temple. 

Furthermore, Shirou carrying Sakura out of the classroom would suggest that we aren't going down THAT route--I HOPE. Sakura could've just been faking it for all I know, but then I wonder how she could've teleported back to class.

Also, Shinji is pissing his pants. I...I don't know what to say to that. 
In the original, while Shinji acted like a scared little Smug Snake, his attitude was more whiny than anything. Here he's about as panicked as Doctor Light after Raven smoked him in the cartoon...or Luke Valentine facing down Alucard. 

And considering the extent of the damage a crossover seems more likely than anything I know about the show. 



*goes to read tropes*

OH YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

NO!
NO!

COME ON! REALLY?

UGH!
I suspected this too, but REALLY?


That's it FSN you just lost some coolness points. 
........not enough to make AoT superior to you, but...well there goes your spotless record.


I mean, okay, technically Caster is still responsible, but MUST it have been off-screen in favor of the awesomeness that was Saber Vs Rider. I mean, even in the MOVIE, Saber is still the one who defeats Rider. 

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!


I'm going to go do some writing and act like this didn't happen until next week.

Ja ne!
  • Mood: Anger
  • Mood: Thrilled
Hey folks, got some exciting news.

I FINISHED THE FIRST DRAFT OF MY NOVEL!

:party:

I told you all I would finish it before year's end. Hell, It's still 10 days before the new year. I might be able to get some editing done in that time. 

The current count is: 407 pages and 186,650 words. 

Here's what still has to get done for those curious:

* First round of editing done by me to re-craft words, spell check and make minor changes (hoping to go at least 10 pages of this a day, so this should take me to February at the most)
* Second round of editing done by me again to make sure everything is consistent in its internal logic (should only take only so long as I intend to take notes with first round of editing)
* Third round of editing done by my mother for full grammatical checking (should also be fairly long)
* Test reading of the first three chapters done by some very close friends. They know who they are. 
* Check criticism of this test run--if any--against the book itself (might take me a couple weeks)


And then, FINALLY I will be pushing for publication.

If all goes according to plan, I should have this series out on the market by May 2015. This is, of course, assuming the first few publishing companies I hand it to like it. Otherwise, it'll take longer.
But
May 2015, pushing for that being the release date and we'll see what happens.

This is now a THING folks. There is NO turning back. 


Production of Fairy Without Wings should return by January 7th. I hope to have some chapters out by January 17th. 
For those wondering about the time frame beyond that, do note that if you see a review of the Ah My Goddess manga, it means production will begin the day after and the chapter should be released a week after that. 

I also am hoping to have the next two installments of who would win done before New Years.


This is it, folks. 
And just to spit in Murphy's Law's face, I have TWO backup copies of the book. 

Ja ne!

The first scene of fate zero episode 22....Made me realize something.

The bad stuff in fate zero is bad ok? Its really REALLY bad. Some of the worst ive ever seen. I HATE them. Plain and simple.

But....I have to say....Its the same with the goods scenes as well. That bit where Weaver, riders master, talks to  his grandfather....Who KNOWS he was not really his grandson...and they talked......And the command seals he used on Rider and everything those two did after that...It was....Brilliant.

Absolutely Brilliant. Perfect really.

I just wish....The show had more moments like those. If it did....It would easily rank much higher. It HAS the talent and Potential for it.

When the battle came out my best friend who is like #1 Deadpool fan in the world couldn't see it until several hours later. I promised him I would not spoil anything for him and did not want to take the risk that my enthusiasm would spoil the victor. 

By the time he did see it, I was at hype burnout and couldn't find the gusto to write a full journal. I've thought about tweeting that "Deadpool wins" or something to that effect, but meh. 

Depending on how Kirby/Buu turns out I might do a double feature.
