My Wishlist  
Because I think it's a nifty idea, I decided to put some thought into it and make up a wishlist for myself. Not so much because I expect people to give me things but because I'd like to keep track of what shinies I want to work towards having too. ^_^ Of course if anyone actually does have anything on here they wouldn't mind giving either for Christmas or just 'cause, that'd be wonderful too. At the very least, there can be pillaging of your music collections for new awesomeness, perhaps? ^_^



THE LIST

1. "The Autobiography of Henry VIII: With Notes by His Fool, Will Somers" by Margaret George
2. "Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles" by Margaret George

That's it for now. I assume it'll be one of those never-ending things, but at least I have a start. I hope no one who actually read through all of that now thinks worse of me. I'm a little selfish, a little greedy, and I can be a terrible consumer whore, but never really in practice. I love giving as much as I like hoarding, slap hands and cross palms. ^^ A lot of the stuff on here's been on a Someday...! list for years now, and I'm sure will be on it for years more. ^^ I... just really like making lists. Categorized lists. Of stuff.

Noooo I was the closest to buying that one too because it was the first--and cheapest!--that popped up during my once-a-blue-moon game-seeking. I turned away only because I was looking for something I wanted to play right away and I have an obsession with trying to play things in order (Final Fantasy and Zelda ever being the two main exceptions though I don't think Zelda truly counts, bouncing around its own timeline like it does). I did read good things about Covenant which was what got me interested in the series in the first place!

ALSO: FINALLY! I've been stalking the comm/profile for near a week and a half waiting for news of a grand opening--and any indication that I'm actually a part of the game! *IS STILL NOT ON YOUR TAKEN CHARACTERS LIST OR FRIEND ADD!* D:< *FEELS UNLOVED*

Somehow I expect this to lead to large amounts of evil cackling so that I may once again scare my mother when I go back home to my beloved PS2 if/when I acquire this shiny. >D EXCELLENT.

AND I FORGIVE YOU. IF ONLY BECAUSE I WANT IN LIKE WOAH. I've even zombie-prepped myself. Delving into caves to fight the buggers in Oblivion, taking extensive notes on the RE movies, having wild, crazy zombie!chase nightmares, then invading the boyfriend's dreams so that he could get torn apart by zombies whilst I floated away on his torn-off-magically-floatable leg downriver. Research!Steph is me, clearly.

Also: Y. TOTAL Y. I'll be mildly delirious because it'll be SHIT SHIT EXAM TIME but I cannot turn down a Dean Winchester.

Also again: BECAUSE MY LAPTOP IS DED AND I'M BORROWING THIS ONE. And it does not like MSN/AIM it seems. *IS SAD because I never see you on AIM!*
M.: &c. | apple fresh grinwolfgrin on December 2nd, 2007 06:04 am (UTC)
Uh, if you want Nightwish & Within Temptation *music*, my dad probably has every single album they ever made, and every single album within at least twelve degrees of separation from them, most likely in good quality (they'll either be the actual discs, copies of the discs, or high-quality rips), and every random single/demo/voicemail message they ever made. I could very easily get you a copy of these. If, however, you're looking for actual CDs... Sorry! :)

I'd gladly send you Andrew Bird & Vienna Teng mp3s, but, uh. I apparently have bad karma and all of my computers with my files on them are currently dead. :$
Stephaniemirroredsakura on December 2nd, 2007 07:07 am (UTC)
Wow. *___*

Sometimes I swear you and your dad have one one half of the internet backed up and my boyfriend the other.

I don't know much about their discography, by my Nightwish folder comprises of this:
1997 - Angels Fall First
1998 - Oceanborn
2000 - Wishmaster
2000 - Wishmastour
2001 - From Wishes to Eternity
2001 - Over the hills and far away
2002 - Bless the child
2002 - Century Child
2002 - Ever Dream
2004 - Once

If you've anything besides that I'd love to steal them off you! :D You know me, I love to hoard.

And... ouch, how many computers would that be? :S I've one dead laptop, another that's inaccessible, and two drives (well, one partitioned one) that might be forever broked so I know that feeling of so many lost files. >.<

Also, I was totally reading your last LJ entry when I realized you'd posted. ^^ Small world indeed.
M.: &c. | youth & revolutionwolfgrin on December 2nd, 2007 07:17 am (UTC)
Haha, we probably do! I'll ask him about it, see what I can get together for you. It probably won't happen until post-exams, but, I shall let you know as soon as I can.

Oh, god, the computer issues. I can't even begin to start-- I haven't had a stable system since September 2006. I lost all my files in January because Sony is a piece of shit, AND they didn't fix my computer, so I had to backup everything I had left to my desktop computer and ship it out again last month-- and then, no kidding, my fucking desktop died. Those files, I hope to god, are just sitting in limbo until my dad can retrieve them, but you never know... I should be getting my laptop back in a couple of days, but then I'll have to start personalizing it again from scratch... Sigh :$ Every time I lose my files, a little part of me dies inside.

And re: the LJ thing, what the fuck, eh? Such a small world.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on December 2nd, 2007 07:34 am (UTC)
Oh I can wait, I've barely time to breathe in between deadlines of stuff, much less go hunting for music--I've procrastinated enough already as you can see by the extent of this list. ^^; I've two DE courses that I need to learn pretty much the whole course for, terrorterrorterror, and so many essays holy shit. *coff* Panic is not my friend.

I remember reading that your laptop had died, and perhaps that your desktop had, but I didn't remember reading that you'd lost your backups too! That's awful!! I'm still living in that half-blissful state of denial where I haven't yet tried to poke them to retrieve them, so I can pretend they're untouched and safe. :\
At least when you get your laptop back it will work, yes?

And btw, since Java is apparently not installed on this laptop and the boyfriend doesn't want to install it to make it go even slower than it does already, what entry of mine pops up on that search? I'm immensely curious and slightly amused since I've not exactly chastity-belted my contact info up away from prying eyes. ^^;

Only half??!
You dont give me enough credit :P
Serephita: Panda!serephita86 on December 4th, 2007 07:22 pm (UTC)
*sends the Firefly box set* Is it okay if its the thin one? I can't find the not thin pack. ._. <3
Stephanie: kakairu; chibi loffmirroredsakura on December 4th, 2007 10:04 pm (UTC)
You would do that for me? *shockthrilled!* And I wouldn't mind in the least if it were not the thin pack one... I've only ever seen it that way and it was one time on a dusty little shelf all by itself with the box and disc cases all mangled so I didn't get it then. I would heart you so much!

Is there anything I might get for you too? I'm not exactly rolling in cash atm, but I can certainly try!
Serephita: Make out with meserephita86 on December 5th, 2007 02:27 am (UTC)
Yes I would! It falls into my $20/friend budget XD (I have some extra cash...no seriously I do XD)

And for me?! *ponders* well...now that I'm getting my JAYNE HAT (!!!!!) not sure what else I really need. XD Fanfics are nice though...and one shots :3 I like one shots lol <3
sobamushisobamushi on December 4th, 2007 09:26 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure the Zelda games are only for Nintendo platforms, since Nintendo never do games for other companies.

Shadow of the Colossus is definitely a worthy buy, if I can still even find a copy I'll get it for you, though it's been almost a year since I saw the last copy at EB..or anywhere for that matter in Vancouver.

As for Mayu stuff, do you mind if it's in Japanese and might not be kaikan? I'm sure I can find other Mayu stuff if you want, only they'll all be in Japanese :X.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on December 4th, 2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
Whoops you're right. @.@; Most of those should be GCN, I was clearly not thinking when I wrote it. ^^;

As for Shadow of the Colossus, I passed it by in Future Shop the other day (was saving money for gifts!) and there was only one Greatest Hits one of it left on the shelf so I guessed it was pretty scarce.

As for Mayu stuff, I would love anything you might have for me, even if they're scans or whatnot. It'd be awesome.

And SO MUCH HEART for thinking of me!! Is there anything in particular I might get for you in return?
sobamushisobamushi on December 4th, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
lol YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT SOC THEN!!! and it's REALLY worth more than the 30$ they're charging for with the Greatest Hits copies.

I was more thinking of the AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL mangas with the pretty covers ;)

Hmmm at the moment no, don't worry about it, maybe, MAYBE I might decide to do a wish list to :p then you can see what I want XD;;~
