7th-Nov-2016 02:55 pm - the return of the prodigal
noctis from reu
I think it's a usual situation for a livejournal to be finished with the words "The report on this amazing event is following, see you soon!".

Haven't seen you all guys for ages! How are you? What are you reading, what are you playing, what are you following, what fandoms are you in? Are you still active here or mostly on other platforms?

I'm so glad to see you here! Hope to meet more often )))
18th-Oct-2012 03:06 pm - Here again

It seems I post here only when the Fandom Kombat is held ))) Well, at least it happens regularly.

So, this year's one is going to be over soon, and the report will be here of course. Still don't know the winner, so nothing to say yet )))

Anyway, we have a team uniting all the games by Square Enix this time. Last year the Final Fantasy and the Kingdom Hearts teams were separate, this year they joined their forces (and invited Deus Ex: Human Revolution, too). Do you know any good DE:HR fanfics, by the way?

Well, see you soon!
18th-Dec-2011 05:35 am - Hello, journal!
noctis from reu
Am I still here?.. Wow, yes, I am! Brilliant.

It's high time I wrote something for the journal not to be archivized. Or how do you call it here, on LJ? )))

So the whole world is laughing at our 'elections', I suppose, and probably you're waiting something about it now.

I'm sorry. This isn't a political journal, so nothing on it, apart from the fact that - we are not laughing XD

Actually, I'd like to speak on translations.

Well, I have to start with mentioning this huge recent event in the Russian community - the Fandom Kombat, a challenge, in which all the most active Russian fandoms participated. It was in the form of a competition - you create something, you vote for something, and the work - and the fandom - which gets the most votes wins. That's it.

So, you wouldn't believe who has won. Or will you?

I'll start with the first place, not to keep you waiting. It has been taken by the Dragon Age fandom, which is not surprising: it is massive, it's got so many brilliant writers, artists, translators - and don't forget devoted fans!

The silver medal went to the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! fandom - so young, but so active, they absolutely deserve it!

And the third place was taken by the Final Fantasy fandom, which actually is a surprise, 'cause it is not so large, as the DA, and not so active, as the KHR fandoms. But they did it.

It was a team of absolutely different persons, liking different Final Fantasies, talented in different spheres - but they made such a good team, with such a friendly, helpful and welcoming environment. It was a pleasure to work with all those wonderful people.

And it was a pleasure to find out that we are the third among thirty other fandoms! The FF managed to leave many rivals behind, for example, the Kuroshitsuji, or the D.Gray Man, or the Doctor Who, or even the Star Trek fandoms - which are very respectful and talented.

So... under the competition, we translated much. A lot. A huge amount of fanfiction, actually. And, dear writers, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry for having got the permission to translate and not providing you with the link to the translation. This is my fault, and the reason is not that I forgot, no! The problem is that the communities we posted the translations to are mostly closed for non-registered or possibly even non-Russian visitors, sometimes due to the content rating considerations, sometimes for some other reasons.

I promise that when I find a rightful place where to post the translations publicly, I'll let you know and send you the link. This is actually about the fanfics by Icedark Elf, Tabitha Dornoc, zacks_blade, CaideSin, renay, Ronsard, and justira. I'm very sorry if I haven't mentioned somebody, but when I gather all the links and systematize them, surely everyone will be credited.

Actually, the most interesting work was on "turntable" by CaideSin. There were three people translating it and two more people supervising, helping and beta-reading. You can definitely say that the whole active part of the Russian Kingdom Hearts fandom was working on it!

So, what else can I say. Now a friend of mine and I are working on "Imperfect Tense" by Hades' Phoenix, and that's the largest project - a fictional one, I mean - in my life!
I also am going to ask for permissions from The Writer Triumphant and lhbaghead.

Well... probably that's enough for a post written only not to let one's journal be closed, isn't it?

Thank you for your attention,

see you later!

This post is just an attempt to get this gorgeous jewelry:

If you follow the banner, you will see that there are more than one thousand people who believe in "halyava" (the stress is on the second syllable) - the idea that you can get something good without paying for it.

Russians love halyava. Well, am I not Russian? )))

Mah Dog: Feed me! Give me some food!
Me: It's still too hot.
Mah Dog: Feed me! Give me some food!
Me: *gives the food*
Mah Dog: Why did you give it to me? It's too hot!

Sorry for that. It's just me not wanting to lose my lj, actually.

Complete History of the Soviet Union through the eyes of a humble worker, arranged to the melody of Tetris

"In Soviet Russia porn watches you" (c)

Found that on Icedark_elf's Insane Journal.

First you laugh. Oh yeah! A person who always builds something, it's so familiar. So is this: "Long live Stalin! He loves you! Sing these words, or you know what he’ll do..."

But starting from the words "Let us point all our guns at the USA. We shall live forever more! We can start a nuclear war!" you feel something like "o_O Excuse me? We can start a nuclear war?!"

At the end, when both Georgia and the Arctic expedition have already been mentioned, you understand. Yes, now it seems  more friendly, but still it's the same. Beware Russia, huh. Isn't that familiar too.

European Commission announces new rules for the English language
The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.
As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.
The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.
Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling..
Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.
By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w"with "v".
During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl.
Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.
Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.
Well I've got it from here. Probably there are more original origins of it.
