Oh, and I'm going to talk about my life too. Because, you know, this is still a blog.
Here~

Painted this this afternoon. It talks about the Tree Theory, but I'll elaborate on that later.

Digital painting! Purple!Collapse )
Amazon "can't ship to Europe" for Pokémon Black and White's American release. Which sucks. I'm definitely not buying these games in French (... okay, maybe I'll take *one* of these, for the French championship, but not before I get an English copy), considering the awful translations they made (Nanmeoui and Gruikui, point final).

... Currently trying to find alternative solutions... any suggestions?

Discussing awesomeness: Fandom vs. Reality

An interesting comic on DA, with an interesting artist's comment, made me want to post an (hopefully) interesting comment. If you're interested, simply follow the link, and Ctrl+F > Kalistina.

The discussion is about the differences in the ways people are perceived in fiction and reality (in relation to awesomeness).

"- You are number...

371."
"- I'm not a number! I'm a free man!"
"- Hahahahahaha..."

Ce post ne parle pas vraiment de The Prisoner en fait.Collapse )

Séance de cartonnage : terminée !

Donc, aujourd'hui, j'ai découpé la plupart de mes impressions de peintures / dessins numériques pour les disposer sur de grandes planches de carton, pour mon dossier artistique aux BA de Paris.

'me suis dit que ça pourrait être sympa à montrer. Note importante, tout de même : y'a pas tout, là (y'a que du numérique, et même dans le numérique il y a des pièces que je ne montre pas). Also, pas mal d'inédits (pièces que j'avais pas forcément terminées et que par conséquent je n'ai jamais montrées).Photos là-dedansCollapse )

Writer's Block: The name game

What's the origin of your username? If you could change it to anything else, would you, and what would it be?


That one's pretty simple. Rebecca's the name I'm thinking of taking one after my transition, and Kalista's been my pseudonym since 2003 (first used on Pokémon Sapphire).
I don't think I'd change it, because that'd result in an information loss. Had I been able to get the username I wanted from the very beginning, things would have been different - I'd simply be Kalista.

Writer's Block: The winning ticket

What would be your first purchase if you won the lottery?


An huuuuuuge Mac Pro with loads and loads of SSD and RAM, and 12 cores. And a Cintiq (the biggest one). Oh, and a max-config Macbook Pro, for when I'm not at home.
Considering the kind of machines we're talking about, I'd probably need about 30k euros for that...

I think I'd place the rest on a bank account and keep on living normally for the most part. I don't really need a fancy car (... I don't even have a driver's license, anyway :D), and I'd rather have considerable reserves than a fancy house.

True Art Is Incomprehensible

Mais genre, vraiment.

Ce matin, en constitution de dossier, un de mes profs m'a demandé de lui montrer l'intégralité de mon dossier d'images persos, plutôt que d'en sélectioner moi-même.
... Disons que je m'attendais franchement pas à imprimer mon DevID pour une école telle que les beaux-arts de Paris (EnsBA).
En fait, apparemment ce genre de travaux est précisément ce qu'il "manquait" à mon dossier... ça tombe bien, quoi.
20 impressions à faire demain matin. Au pas de course - j'ai aussi ma lettre de motivation à rédiger, et le rendu est Vendredi. *agite les pattes*

When tired, Kalista can be damn WEIRD

This evening, Firefox crashed on us once again. I don't like these situations, for various reasons. Obviously, the data loss bothers me a lot, but above this, it feels like Amandine (my computer) is trying to tell me I'm overworking her (heck, her processor is pretty hot right now).
Considering the efforts I'm making to give it a magic of its own, I'm going to listen to her for the first time in a while.

Amandine. Since your most exhausting process is Firefox, because of its tendency to keep too much things in your RAM, we're going to change the way we use Firefox. From now on, Firefox will clear its tabs list every time it goes to sleep. That's right, new session everyday. Happy?

... Well, I hope she is.
I'll try to make this a good thing for me too. Clearing tabs regularly should be a good way to favor brainstorming and efficient browsing.
Sorta like a new browsing hygiene? You might want to try this out too.
Je m'étais dit que je reviendrais pas sur LJ avant d'avoir passé les concours, mais Madoka m'a donné envie de poster de nouveau, so THERE!

That being said, j'ai pas encore beaucoup de temps à y consacrer, donc ce sera (relativement - je reste une Kalista mine de rien :D) bref.

Contenu !Collapse )

So... I started watching Madoka a few days ago, after reading about it on TV Tropes. Deconstruction of the Mahou Shoujo genre? I'm in.
Incidentally, this is actually the first time I'm actively following an anime via fansubs before its completion. It's a pretty interesting experience so far, being able to follow the fanbase's evolution as the story unfolds itself. Kind of... magic?
There are some awesome Wild Mass Guesses going on at the Puella Magi wiki, and on TV Tropes. However (it should be obvious when dealing with wikis), proceed with caution if you want to avoid spoilers.

Anyway. Considering how awesome this anime is, I just had to talk about it. But first, a few warnings.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica is an ongoing anime, particularly prone to fluctuation. Anything I say in this article is susceptible to evolve wildly as the series progresses toward its completion - I'm not aiming for an objective, complete evaluation, but rather for a recording of my current opinion, which is pretty subjective and will probably change in about six days (next episode). Also, this is a review. My interpretations (and the spoilers needed to talk about them) will come later, in another article. In other words, there shouldn't be anything spoilerific in this post.

Dramatic reviews are dramatic!Collapse )
So, j'ai passé les dix derniers jours à drabbler comme une malade sur Embouteillage en Hyperespace (nom plus ou moins temporaire d'une histoire se passant dans le multivers sur lequel je travaille en ce moment) sur l'arbre à drabbles de drakys, et voilà ce que ça a donné.

Les drabbles sont rangés par ordre chronologique (mais les scènes n'ont pas nécessairement été écrites dans l'ordre - la référence en "EeH" correspond à l'ordre d'écriture). Ils font en principe cent mots chacun (je pense pas m'être trompée mais d'un autre côté il est tout de même trois heures du matin ^^").

Note importante : il y a deux personnages nommés Rebecca. Ce n'est pas accidentel (et les quiproquos sont quelque chose que j'accepte dans le contexte de ces drabbles).

Also, ces drabbles sont a priori des "teasers" d'Embouteillage en Hyperespace. Ils sont tous plus ou moins canon (la plupart ne sont pas en contradiction avec le scénario tel que je le percois à l'heure actuelle, mais ils pourraient le devenir plus tard - on sait jamais, donc je préfère prévenir).

Tout est en rating G. Also, tout ça est à moi (as in, créé par moi et m'appartenant). Si vous voulez utiliser les persos ou les univers présentés, faudra d'abord avoir mon accord écrit.

En ce moment, je me refais Kingdom Hearts II (c'est la faute à ishime , elle les a commencés alors qu'elle restait chez moi suite à la Japan Expo ! Japan Expo que je dois toujours débrieffer d'ailleurs...). Comme je joue en Expert cette fois-ci, je me suis dite que ce serait une bonne idée de pexer les Fusions (Vaillance, Sagesse et Maîtrise pour l'instant) pour libérer leurs compétences cachées, mais en même temps je voulais éviter de faire du vrai level up (parce que ce jeu vaut la peine de recommencer un boss dix fois, je trouve). J'ai donc dû essayer être créative en cherchant des moyens de pexer les Formes, tout en évitant de pexer Sora lui-même.

Et j'ai découvert quelque chose. Quelque chose de profondément troublant qui m'a secouée au plus profond de mon être. Kingdom Hearts est un jeu violent, brutal et sanglant.
Je m'explique.

Kingdom Hearts est un jeu violentCollapse )
Just like the previous day, we arrived on the JE relatively late (at about 17:30). I had decided to photograph as many of the stands I'd bought stuff at as possible, but missed the one where I bought most of my badges. I also failed to preserve the small amount of money I'd retrieved at the bank.

Met up with cassidy_b and sephira91.

Total spent: 34,0 euros

LAST DAY, 24 HOURS REMAINCollapse )

Spellites:

Although short, it was a nice day in and of itself.

Incidentally, I didn't spend anything. Thus...

Total spent: 0,0 euros

THIRD DAY, 48 HOURS REMAINCollapse )

Spellites:

Today was rather good too. We (me and ishime met up with (among others) lubyllule, cassidy_b, pwassonne, maafounet and Myssdii.
I also met sakoni for the first time and we were able to exchange a few words. Well, ishime exchanged more words with her than me.
Sad fact: I discovered nym_aulth's phone provider's got a lag with mine, meaning our SMS were delayed. Because of this, we were unable to meet up today (she had to catch her plane to Russia!). Au revoir, hugs and cheek kisses, nym. I'm glad we could meet yesterday too, you're awesome! We'll have to exchange our addresses because if you are to send me letters, you have to expect me to answer to them. :3

Total spent: 24,9 euros

SECOND DAY, 72 HOURS REMAINCollapse )

Spellites:

I was waaay too tired to talk about it before catching some sleep, but yesterday was Japan Expo 11's first day. It was a great day.
Since I'm hosting ishime for the JE, we were together during the whole day; additionally, we met up with cassidy_b (whom I knew) and nym_aulth (one of Ishime's friends, who cosplayed as Belgium from Axis Power Hetalia; she's from Hawaii). Great, great people!

Under the LJ-cut, you will find me talking about my day in English ('cause I want nym_aulth to be able to comment this entry!), and a few photos I took yesterday (I'll up them later though - not that much time right now). Oh, and a list of the stuff I picked up.

Total spent: 60,5 euros

FIRST DAY, 96 HOURS REMAINCollapse )

Bonjour ! ~ Hello! +license

Je me présente, Kalista, apprentie sorcière et auteure amatrice. Enchantée de faire votre connaissance !
Selon mon humeur, j'écris en français ou en anglais.

~~~

Name's Kalista, I'm an apprentice witch and I write a little. Glad to meet you!
I write in English or in French, depending on my mood. There might be a few bilingual posts, but I realised a few months ago this tends to kill the magic, so... I'll probably avoid these.
