Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great? Merle/Van/Hitomi/Allen/Millerna/Dryden Okay, I could probably reduce that down to Van/Hitomi/Allen, but... So, let's explain this.  )

30DoA.11: Favorite mech series: Vision of Escaflowne

Day 11 - Favorite mech series: Vision of Escaflowne

I debated between this and Gurren Lagann. Yes, the two are very different series, besides that there are Giant Robots in both.

Unlike many mech series, Vision of Escaflowne isn't set in The Future -- if I had to pick an aesthetic, it would be the same type of thing that gives us steampunk. )

I feel much better

Insomnia appears mostly cured, though I ended up taking a 'boredom-nap'* today. On the plus side, the program appears to actually do what it's supposed to do now -- it still gives me the wrong answer, but it tells me why. (Basically, it gives me a wrong answer that is just as good as the right answer.)

* Basically, I spent the day programming so ended up lying down to recover mental fatigue. Because I find programming to be very frustrating.

Here, have some space porn Cassini Pictures.

In non-work news, I have a crossover story between Vision of Escaflowne and Charles Stross's Laundry book series, which is a pair of novels that are one part spy fiction, one part occult Lovecraftian horror, and one part computer-geekfest. If I ever get free time again, my fanfiction's premise might be expanded to feature how Hitomi Kanzaki, intelligence-service intern, saves Japan from the Destiny Machine Mark 2.

No one will ever read this*, but it makes me very happy.

* Going to try to write it for Escaflowne fen who have never read Stross's books, in the bare hopes someone will take a risk.
