Can you explain the appeal of rwby?

Well for me the main appeal are the characters.

Like at first i didn’t care much for this show. I remember dropping it before Volume 1 ended a while back but then eventually rewatched it out of boredom one day a short while after Volume 2 ended and somehow I was hooked the second time around.

I understand why people would drop the show. I won’t lie and say that it’s for everyone. But this show has made me feel a wide range of emotions as i watched the series and not many shows have been able to do that for me.

Five years ago today the author Brian Jacques passed away. Some of my earliest memories are finished the novels Mossflower and Redwall at the scholastic book fair of Dewitt Clinton elementary school. I remember running home every day to watch the PBS series of the novels. I remember falling in love with the way words paint images on the psyche and the way characters shape us long after we’ve put the novel down. I remember that every novel in the Redwall universe ends with an invitation to come back again someday for a visit.

In middle school I was writing Redwall fanfiction before I even knew what fanfiction was. Brian Jacques along with a few other authors shaped what I’m studying currently and want I hope to be doing in the future. He once wrote in a motivational writing speech

“You know, you’ll disappoint me, if in a few years time, I’m not standing on line at a bookstore, waiting for you to sign my copy of your book. Come on, all it takes is you, and determination, self belief, and of course, the flame, which came from that first tiny spark.

Your pal,

Brian Jacques”

And that is now one of my main goals. To tell stories that people want to hear. I always remember this day because it defined so much if who I am and I always return to the Redwall novels when I need to remember there is beauty in the world.

1. How did you get into Dragon Age?
I was looking for a new game to play, but had no idea which one, just was in the mood for an RPG. I think I had heard of Dragon Age Origins before, or found it while looking around for something, don’t really remember, but I ended up watching a few videos on Youtube, and when I saw the Zevran romance, I decided to give the game a try, and I ended up really loving it.

2. Have you finished all three games?
Yep :)

3. How long did it take you to finish the series?
Oh, I don’t remember but a while. I tend to explore everthing, and I don’t play all the time, so it took ages to finish them. Inquisition took me months to finish, if I remember right.

I like filling out meme questions.
  1. Favourite book: The Warriors Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold
  2. Favourite movie: The Princess Bride (but it lost some of the appeal after watching it with my second girlfriend and that relationship ending)
  3. Favourite TV series: Babylon 5
  4. What country do you live in? New Zealand.
  5. What is your favourite thing about yourself? Possibly my ability to remember rules to board games.
  6. Last book you read: Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett (at work I’ve been reading Whitewash by Alex Kava for about 2 months)
  7. Do you have any siblings? One sister (and my parents had a short lived boy child a year before me)
  8. What’s the last song you listened to? A Christmas parody song by The Secret Cabal in episode 101
  9. What (if any) superpower would you like to have? Teleportation would probably be the most useful, although I’d stop exercising. (There’s other issues as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJt8yzR2aoY)
  10. What is your favourite item of clothing that you own? Perhaps my Agri-Cola t-shirt, that or the jacket I purchased about a dozen years ago.
  11. Coffee or tea? Neither.

Tell me what you think about xiaolin showdown and don bluth's Anastasia

I actually really liked Xiolin Showdown. I was a huge fan of the original series back in the days of watching it on Kids WB on Saturday mornings. I remember loving the originality behind the plot of the story as well as loving the diverse cast of characters from the Xiolin Warriors to even the villains like Chase Young, Wu Ya and Jack Splicer. I remember one of my favourite arcs was the one where Chase has tricked Omi into swearing his allegiance to him and since Omi is a monk and essentially a man of his word, he had no choice but to join him and the other warriors could only watch helplessly as Chase turned Omi into a lion minion before their very eyes. I think that was the end of Season 2. Season 1 ended where Raymundo betrayed the Xiolin Warriors and temporarily joined Wu Yah and Jack.

Wow I’m surprised I remember so much about this series. It was soo long ago but still one of the best cartoons from my childhood –well younger years. Til this day I’m still surprised that Raymundo turned out to be the Grand Xiolin Master to lead the others into battle. Throughout the series, they’ve always more hinted at Omi being the one but it turned out to be Raymundo which was a nice twist. Aaah Xiolin Showdown—good times.

I’m not so much a fan of the new spin of it though—Xiolin Chronicles. I was excited about it at first when it was first announced. I was hoping that it would’ve been a continuation of the first series however, from some of the reviews that I read on it. It isn’t a continuation and is somewhat of a rewrite with there being changes from the old series. Then I caught one of the episodes and….well I dunno, I just stopped watching it. It just didn’t feel the same not to mention that some of the voice acting for this series didn’t impress me. I didn’t like how they changed Jack’s voice. I miss having Dave the Barbarian as Jack XD I dunno I had a lot of mixed feelings about Xiolin Chronicles but in general, I loved Xiolin Showdown.

As for Anastasia…WOW! To be honest,  I haven’t seen that movie from since I was a kid. And not teen kid but like little girl kid. I know I had seen it at least once or twice however unfortunately I don’t remember much of it to give an actual opinion. Sorry. Maybe if I watch it over recently.
