Ah... hello.

I'm new to this community, and I'm a little overwhelmed. Although I've been in anime fandoms before, I don't think I've ever been deeply involved in one that's still just coming out. When looking through people's posts on the community, I saw that some people were screencapping and discussing episode 44, which was just now coming out in Japan! @_@ Now that's up-to-date! I've only seen up to episode 38. I feel so behind.

On the other hand, I also saw at least one person posting who hasn't seen much of the show at all, so maybe I'm not the slowest person here.

Would it be considered rude if I joined, and posted comments or fics or cosplay pics on the lj comm, but didn't read or comment on all the other entries? It seems to be a *very* energetic community, with a lot of entries all at once, and I think I'd get a little lost. On the other hand, my fangirlish passion for FMA is enough that I might yet keep up.

So... what's all right to post? I have a bunch of random small fics that I've written, and am in the process of writing more. (I haven't been so inspired to write for at least two years. Wow!) I have a bunch of cosplay pictures from Otakon (as though you hadn't seen enough of those!) Other than that, I just have a lot of babble. :)

Reading back over this post, I sound exceedingly boring and shy. I promise that when you get to know me, I'm a real party animal. >_> Just ask about the silver clocks. Or maybe you'd better not.

Silver clocks, eh? xD
Welcome to the community *^_^* Rude? ^_^ Nah, I don't think so. Heh. Post your stuff -- especially the fics! :D Energetic new people are a good thing ^_^

Re: Silver clocks, eh? xD
Okay! ^_^ Thanks for the welcome. I'll post soon, though I'll try not to overwhelm the community by posting too much stuff at once. ;)

Silver clocks goes like this:

Watching episode 26. There's a line in there where Winry tells Ed, "Ed, pull out your silver clock so I can look at it."

My first thought: WHOA! I thought this was a family-friendly show!

My second thought: Wow, I didn't think she had replaced THAT for him, too.

My third thought: Oh, wait, she meant his watch.

Don't feel bad about being behind.


elanivalaeelanivalae on August 7th, 2004 10:30 pm (UTC)
I'm a few episodes behind, myself >_< Damned dialup... -_-;

But..but...it owned!

I haven't seen episode 41..so *shrugs*
mikkeneko on August 7th, 2004 10:57 pm (UTC)
I don't even have the excuse of dialup, but we (my sister and I are watching together) are behind anyway... >_>;; mostly because we can't use IRC, so we must wait for the torrent tracker sites to catch up.
Courtney: windypixelspaniel on August 7th, 2004 11:11 pm (UTC)
I stopped using mIRC loooong time ago, and to this day, I rely on getting all my episodes off of either KaZaA or WinMX. It's just less of a hassle than dealing/waiting with torrents and such.

Mah op tho.
mikkeneko on August 7th, 2004 11:23 pm (UTC)
Ah, well, we're a Mac family, so KaZaa isn't really an option for us. ^^;

...i know you.....i just don't remember from where. hmm...a puzzle...

oh yeah..the actual post. I only reply to things when I can. That's all anyone can do. This fandom is more active than most I've seen....go for it.
mikkeneko on August 7th, 2004 10:54 pm (UTC)
Same mikkeneko of GW fandom?

Ahhh... yes. :) I just recently created this livejournal so I could put my fandom stuff somewhere my family wouldn't read it. >_>;

Same mikkeneko who is writing "Spoils of War?"

Umm.... >_> ostensibly, yes. I'm bad, I'm really bad. I know.

And yes, I recognize you. :) It's good to see people I know in this community. I know girl_starfish posts in here, too, but she's busy nowadays.

My biggest problem is that my beta wandered away and I never got a new one. -_-; That's slowed down writing a lot.

How's this for a deal: For your kind welcome to the community, I'll get the next chapter of SW out by the end of August.

That's a very good offer. :3 I may take you up on it.

Awesome! You're going to write FMA ficcage? I would love to read stuff written by you. I'm not much for the FMA fiction but I will read authors I know and like.

And Kitsune is here too? Man, this anime has amassed a large chunk of the Net. *loves her FMA*
mikkeneko on August 8th, 2004 05:50 pm (UTC)
>_> and Girl Starfish is lurking around here somewhere, if you know that name.

Wow, I'm more behind than you. *giggles* I'm on episode 34 or something.

And you can post just about anything FMA. They are some communities that are just for a certain thing though. :)
mikkeneko on August 7th, 2004 11:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the welcome! *grin*

This comm seems to be pretty general, isn't it? I don't really know my way around the FMA fandom at the moment, so if there are specific fic-communities or pic-communities, I'm not sure where they are.
ジェニイ 「Jenny」: Ed and Winry [ushitora_icons]kirchu on August 7th, 2004 11:32 pm (UTC)

Ah, no problem with that. People often post their own stuff and then might have this thing called "crossposted on (some other site)". And the "(some other site)" is replaced with the other FMA community that's suitable for just that one thing!

...@_@ Whoa. I hope that that didn't sound confusing for you, lol.
mikkeneko on August 7th, 2004 11:46 pm (UTC)
Nope, I get the gist of it. :3

Everyone and their dog posts about everything and their dog (yay Den and Black Hayate!), so don't worry about that :) Lots of people post fic, with cuts.

The only rule you won't find on the information page is one that's a common courtesty: make posts concerning fansubbing Friends Only. We don't want anybody getting in trouble or shut down because of our LJ community :)

Welcome aboard!
mikkeneko on August 8th, 2004 12:30 am (UTC)
Gotcha. I don't run a fansubbing group, so hopefully it won't be a big deal, but I'll keep that in mind when talking about them. :) Thanks for the welcome!

Awww, we need fic starring the puppies. That would be so cute. A little fluffy one-shot. I'd like to see the FMA world through their eyes. XD Ah, if only I had the patience to write fanfiction.
