Been invited to a friend's Halloween party in Cardiff this year, and conveniently it's the day before I'm going to a gig there anyway, so that's worked out well ^_^ Couldn't afford a costume so I might just get some black and white face paints and go for "generic over-the-top black metal musician". But wearing a power metal T-shirt as I'm not quite into the correct subgenres :P

Hello everyone! Im iCyanz, or just Cyan, and I'm new to this forum! And no, even though the title may suggest it, I am not multilingual. Those are just common phrases I know XD

I found this forum through Tumblr, on a Warriors account.

Though I am a bit younger than most Warriors fans I know (don't worry, I am within the age limit), I'm almost done with Power of Three, and I'm also reading Dawn of the Clans to save time. The next boom I'm getting is The First Battle, then Sunrise.

My favorite character is the dad himself, Graystripe! He's such a fun character, and his relationship with a Firestar (my second favorite character and my favorite leader) is amazing. I remember when Millie was almost dead in Long Shadows, and Firestar comforted Graystripe. IT WAS SO CUTE

My third favorite character is Ravenpaw to complete the OG three. Yea, I'm only a tiny bit of the Warriors equivalent of a Genwunner. He is such a relatable character. Also, fun fact time, Ravenpaw x Barley is canon!

Other Warriors info about me:
My favorite warriors book in general: Into the Wild
My favorite TNP Book: Sunset
My favorite POT Book:Eclipse
My favorite Med cat:Cinderpelt, Jayfeather, or Yellowfang
My least favorite character:LEAFPOOL (or crowfeather)
My favorite villain:Hawkfrost or Sol
My least favorite villain:Thistleclaw (but even then I still really like him as a villain)
Favorite canon pair: Squirrelflight x Brambleclaw/star, Tallstar x Jake, Ravenpaw x Barley
Favorite non-canon pair: Darkstripe x Tigerstar
Least favorite pair:Leafpool x Crowfeather, Squirrelflight x Ashfur
Favorite minor character:Brackenfur, Brightflower, Brackenfoot, Berrynose, Cloudtail, Brightheart
Favorite scene:The solar eclipse, or any scene with Graystripe

Also I like Darkstripe. He's a good villain.

Well that was longer than it needed to be. I hope that's fine, lol. Thanks for reading my intro post! I hope to have a good time here!

Read Magicís Promise, the second book in the trilogy I mentioned reading earlier, over the weekend. I liked it! It was definitely different from the first one, what with being all mystery and political intrigue, but it was actually a nice change; just enough to keep things interesting.

Iím also reading the original Dracula, which is really good so far. But even though I know that it basically is what made vampires popular, itís hilarious how obviously vampiric Dracula is as a modern reader. Still really enjoyable, though.

oooh i'll have to keep norwegian wood in mind for the future then. i really like that "mood" as you say. i'm almost done with the gate and i don't have anything else in particular up next (unless i want to try reading more cat books----).

since i am a cat doesn't have a real "plot" i don't think it's really the same as something just being ended out of nowhere in a cop-out kind of way, like to solve the problems/conflict or end a storyline. the whole thing is about commentary and what the cat has to say about humans/human nature, and death is a part of that so i think it's fitting. it has a kind of peaceful finality to it.

also i don't know if i ever told you but a while back i read the housekeeper and the professor that you recommended to me! i liked it a lot
:D
it's a cute book, I'm glad you liked it

yeah I can get why kokoro ends that way but still when you get there it's like... but what happened......
it reminded me a lot of some of the novels we read in my modern japanese lit class. I don't know if it's the style or the themes or what but there's a certain mood to them... Norwegian Wood in particular was one I really liked that seemed similar somehow

I'm enjoying I Am A Cat but I might have reservations about its ending too (I accidentally read ahead oops). it just feels like the kind of shortcut you take when you don't want to keep writing but can't be bothered to think of an ending. poor snobby cat

last year we put a bunch of candy in a bowl by the door and then... didn't actually give it out... I don't like the social interaction and no one else wants to keep getting up to answer the door. hopefully laziness will win out again this year

so yeah possibly nothing Į\_(ツ)_/Į I'm not into scary movies or parties, I just want to eat candy

Blade Runner 2049 - Meh.  It's been two hours since I left the theatre and I can already feel myself forgetting about it.  Nice cinematography and effects, though.

It's that time of year again folks
What are you guys doing for Halloween? What are you going to dress up as?
I'm going to do the TARDIS from Doctor Who, although I'm not sure what I'm actually going to do because I'm at the age where people will probably think it's weird if I'm trick or treating so I might just buy a bunch of candy and watch movies.

I finished Xanadu Next and I really liked it. It's a shame it didn't sell very well and I don't see any talk about it even among Falcom fans, since it's a really good game.

It's pretty different on the surface from all the other Falcom games I've played, but its got a lot of fundamental similarities to Ys. It's got the same great dungeon design, where dungeons seem really confusing and overwhelming at first but they very quickly start to make sense as you explore them, except taken even further. Whereas in post-Napishtim Ys you can eventually freely warp from save point to save point so dungeons can mostly exist independently of each other, here you can only freely warp back to town one-way so every dungeon has to have a point that can become easily accessible from town so everything has to eventually loop back together in some way (i.e. at the end of the first floor of the eternal maze, you can unlock a door that allows you to get to the second floor directly from the town). It's neat and makes things feel all connected.

Honestly, there is a lot of Ys-like stuff, too. The way the story focuses on a long-dead civilization, and how you can collect and translate records from that time to learn about the past which ties into the main plot... Hell, there's even an accessory that's literally just the Mask of Eyes, only is actually gets more use than the Mask of Eyes ever did in Ys.

The combat is pretty different, though. It's a lot slower since it's more focus on exploration than action, but I enjoyed all the dungeon crawling and puzzles. I really liked a lot of the RPG elements as well, I feel like out of the Falcom games I've played this is probably the closest to a "traditional" RPG as far as character building goes. I never really used it, but the ability to go down a level to respec your character is pretty neat.

I'm planning on tacking the very daunting bonus dungeon next week, but for now I'm just taking a break. Still no release date for Zwei II, so I might have time to eventually pick up 7th Stand User before then.
