I've been neglecting dreamwidth lately; I didn't really do a lot of fanfic reading in the past year (mostly due to geopolitics--it felt kind of weird to read about Cold War pairings when there's actual political tensions going on lol); instead I became more active on the r/babymetal and r/sakuragakuin sub-threads on reddit--which has been pretty unexpected. I even went to Japan to catch a concert. :) It's a completely different type of fandom (hey, it's music and idols! -_-;;) but fandom nonetheless; and the threads make it so much easier to keep up with conversations. Sorry, Tumblr; you're pretty but my attention span is zilch on your platform.

Also, if you haven't seen the awesomeness that is Dragon Age Inquisition do consider checking it out; I predict that quite a number of femslash fics will be based off of this one--mostly because some characters have no in-game options for F/F romance. :) I appreciate that. If you wanted to hear some witty (well--maybe snarky) conversation while checking out some of the gameplay I would recommend checking out Geek Remix's Let's Play of it. They're pretty good at figuring out what would feel like stale gameplay for the viewer and showcasing some of the more important dialogues and/or scenes. They dive right in after doing the character creation off screen. They did finish playing it, so I felt like it was a good time to share it. :D And here's their DA:I bingo card while you're at it.

Since I'm posting this I'll post some manga recs here too...

Fluttering Feelings photo fluttering-feelings.jpg

The only yuri manga that I've been quite excited about in the last few weeks have been Samba's Fluttering Feelings. It's so good, I wish she had an official English translation subscription so I can support her and subscribe to her updates. ^_^ There's 22 chapters out at the moment but I think this site has linked to only the first 5 (I think the fanpage has more). If you understand Korean, here's the official site for this series. [Update 25 June 2015: Someone created an overlay guide and visual guide on how to register and read the chapters on Comico itself!]

As for others...

5 Centimeters per Second by SHINKAI Makoto (artist: SEIKE Yukiko)
"A tale of two people, Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. They become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of letters. Yet as time continues to trudge on, their contact with one another begins to cease. Years pass and the rift between them grows ever larger. However, Takaki remembers the times they have shared together, but as life continues to unfold for him, he wonders if he would be given the chance to meet Akari again as the tale embarks on Takaki's realization of the world and people around him."

By the same creator of "Voices from a Distant Star;" it's very good. Prepare tissues for this one.

Real Clothes by MAKIMURA Satoru
Kinue is a saleswoman in the futon section of a department store. Despite her plain clothes and poor makeup, she ends up being transferred to the women’s clothing department, where she has to be trained by her extraordinarily fashionable boss.

Just finished watching Tetraninja's play through of Bioshock Infinite, and was impressed with the storyline. :DD Would totally recommend playing / watching if you're a sci-fi/fantasy fan. Another series I would recommend watching from Tetraninja is Catherine,a dating / puzzle game.
