Hihi out there, Alicia-x-Itachi here!

I'm a cartoon, game, and SF/F lit junkie, hobbyist artist, and wannabe writer. I draw for fun and write a lot of fanfic, and I do hope to be a published author eventually.

My fandoms include Pokémon (Black/White are the best, though I despise the anime), Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy (IV is the best), Fire Emblem, Golden Sun, and (reluctantly) Naruto (meaning, I hate the show and manga, but occasionally appreciate other people's fancharacters). I'm mostly into Runescape at the moment though.

As far as books go--and I'm an avid reader--I quite like The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Tortall cycle by Tamora Pierce, and anything by Robin Hobb or Diana Wynne Jones.

DB: Ship War Free Zone 2of2 by DarkJediPrincess

Other little details:

:bulletpurple: I love Disney animated movies very much. Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin are the best ones.
:bulletpurple: I don't watch much TV, and I prefer cartoons to live action (as well as 2D cartoons to CGI animation).
:bulletpurple: I have a huge weakness for chocolate anything.
:bulletpurple: I take a long time to get anything done, though I wish I didn't.
:bulletpurple: I'm a sucker for cute things.
:bulletpurple: I like making things for other people--I like to see them happy!
:bulletpurple: I'm fluent in sarcasm, and I like to wisecrack and joke a lot of the time.
:bulletpurple: I love the sci-fi/fantasy genres because I am fascinated by things that are impossible in real life.
:bulletpurple: I am a total mage enthusiast--I love all kinds of magic and magic users.
:bulletpurple: I have an odd fondness for the cliché of fantasy protagonists always being teenagers. Can't save the world if you're a day over twenty :P
:bulletpurple: I have a strong preference for female protagonists, and I'm really sick of the Smurfette principle.
:bulletpurple: I would also love to see more darker-skinned main characters, especially in SF/F. It's boring if everyone is as paste-white as I am!
:bulletpurple: Buuuuut I really hate token characters, demanding diversity quotas in fiction, and lazy pandering! Representation for the sake of representation is bad writing--the trick is just to treat every character as a character first and foremost!
:bulletpurple: I really, really like to ship interracial pairs. I am not just talking about human skin colors, either--I mean humans and nonhumans. Or any sentient humanoid races, really.
:bulletpurple: I'd like to see more focus on family and friendship, not just romance. Those kinds of love are important too.
:bulletpurple: Love triangles suck! Especially since most of the time it's really friggin' obvious who is the clear victor and who is the third wheel.
:bulletpurple: Everybody needing to have a love interest or a One Twu Wuv is equally annoying.
:bulletpurple: I think yuri is better than yaoi.
:bulletpurple: I often crush on fictional characters. Despite my username, Itachi Uchiha is no longer one of those. In fact I'm actually kind of sick of him...
:bulletpurple: I'm very introverted and socially awkward, so it's very hard for me to reach out to people. I'm also overly nervous about pissing people off.
:bulletpurple: I'm my own worst critic, sometimes too much so.
:bulletpurple: I'm very very happy to receive good feedback and criticism. What'd I do right? What'd I do wrong? What could I do better? I really wanna know! Even a big long speech about how much I suck and why is better than a one-word comment ^^;
:bulletpurple: If you're happy to talk to me, I'm happy to talk to you!
:bulletpurple: I do not openly discuss my personal life or problems for numerous reasons.
:bulletpurple: I'm Roman Catholic, and I feel very strongly about my beliefs. However, I do not wish my faith or my political alignment to get in the way of a friendship with those who might believe otherwise.
:bulletpurple: I am rather cynophobic--I pretty much despise dogs.
:bulletpurple: Bats are the most adorable animal ever.
:bulletpurple: Sensory overloads of any kind--usually obnoxious loud noises combined with crowds--make me get really upset. That's perhaps the biggest reason I hate parties unless there's decent food.
:bulletpurple: I really hate crowds, or being randomly touched.
:bulletpurple: Sometimes I say really dumb things, and sometimes I'm slow to pick up on things.

Please, do not thank me for the fave on my page. I faved your piece because I liked the art and wanted to see it again. If my faving your picture means a lot to you, then consider that it would mean a lot to me if you faved or gave me feedback on my art. I also do not give a shit about llama badges.

The difference between reality and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

I knew it. The retcon wasn't worth it.

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 24, 2016, 1:03 AM
This is a follow-up to a previous journal of mine, wherein I explained my disgust with the retconning of the Star Wars EU and that it would be the reason I would not be seeing The Force Awakens. Indeed I did not go, even though my entire family did. I also said I didn't care whether the movie was good or bad... that's... not entirely true anymore, I fear... :noes:

You see, I didn't care about spoilers and didn't mind finding out what happens in the movie, so I had no qualms about checking out IMDB or video reviews. And, well... :steaming: I'm gonna get pretty ranty, so bear with me...

*flexes fingers* Let's make one thing very clear. I LOATHE diversity quotas, and pandering to arbitrary diversity with stupid token characters. It's shallow, superficial as hell, and a terrible way to create characters and tell stories. And our dear director freely admitted to casting based on the actors' skin color and gender in order to have a more diverse cast for the sake of going "Lookit how progressive and inclusive I am!" And I find that awful, because it's being judgmental solely on the basis of skin color and gender, and not taking ability or talent into account whatsoever. Now, I'm not opposed to diverse characters--hell, I'm biased in favor of female protagonists, and I decided I'd have a black heroine for the book I really need to freaking finish writing--but characters needed to be treated as characters first, not be pandering tokens who are solely defined by "Look, I'm a nonwhite non-dude, and that's my entire character!" I was just as disgusted with, say, the casting of The Last Failbender, but that was because I'm against race lifting characters in general, and that wasn't an issue with this movie--but peppering your movie with token characters because loldiversity is just as bad as race lifting, and is shitty writing/worldbuilding.

Speaking of pandering and shitty writing... I take back what I said about being disgusted with Ahsoka. Yes, she was an annoying, interfering Sue... but at least all she did was interfere with an underdeveloped dynamic and be an annoying teenage brat, and it's not her fault she was designed with inappropriate attire for a fourteen-year-old. At least she didn't effortlessly succeed at everything she did with no prior experience, at least she wasn't a "strong" "independent" Sue who "din need no man," and at least she actually trained to be a Jedi and worked for her skills instead of magically pulling them out of her ass when it was convenient!

Yes, I'm looking at you, Miss Perfect Rey-Sue Miss Perfect Who Doesn't Deserve To Be Part of This Canon, Let Alone Replace the Solo Siblings as a Protagonist. You are every Strong Independent Badass Sue ever, and you might as well have escaped from the bowels of some twelve-year-old's first wank fantasy on FFN... I swear, the movie should've been called "Miss Perfect Does Everything Without Breaking a Sweat!" News flash: truly strong, great heroines need to have character flaws, growths, and arcs too! They need to suffer, fail, make mistakes, have flaws--not magically be able to do everything perfectly! I'm legitimately furious that they chose to replace Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin with fucking Rey-Sue... at least Jaina had an actual character and character growth, and at least she had to work for things and suffer to accomplish them!

Also, I liked Kylo Ren a lot more when he was called Jacen Solo. Seriously guys, would it have killed you to say Jacen? He basically is Jacen, except whinier and tantrumier...

I seriously do not understand why this movie got so much praise... all it is is pandering to nostalgia and Tumblresque political correctness. I wouldn't have thought the retcon was worth it even for a good movie, but this.... this is an even bigger middle finger, an even bigger slap in the face.

Well, I have even more reason to put my money where my mouth is and not watch this stupid, pandering badfic movie. *deep breath* Welp, now that's off my chest... gotta go back to writing the next fics....
