Sword Art Online

One word: AWESOME!!! >.< The story line is one thing, and the graphic is another thing. Both protagonists are super, duper cute!! Especially Kirito… *o* It’s about an online game in which players could actually go inside the game. Somehow, in the new game Sword Art Online, players couldn’t log out. The game became a survival game because if they die in the game, so will they in real life.

Download and watch online links will be provided at the bottom of the post ^^

In this anime, it kind of divided into two different games. In the second game, Azuna got trapped in there, and Kirito tries to find her. Full of action and romance. ^o^ When these two fight together, they go in perfect syn.

Sword-Art-Online-1-L

Title: Sword Art Online

It maybe seem like a harem anime in the first couple episodes, but trust me, it’s not. =.= If it’s harem, I wouldn’t like it as much either..lolz Kirito only likes Azuna and Azuna alone. Though it’s not even funny how many girls fall for him. =.= “Back off, girls. He’s Azuna’s and Azuna’s alone.” I literally said this when I watched.

Secret Garden (2011)

*o*  One of my all-time favorite dramas… Can’t believe I didn’t post this though.. =.= I just watched Big Bang’s parody of it recently, that’s how I remember I didn’t post about this drama yet… It’s funny and dramatic..lolz As the plot was nearing the end, things became more serious and sad..T-T I literally cried in some parts… But trust me in this one, it’s worth watching…>.<

The story began with a rich, arrogant guy who fell in love with a poor girl. He loves her, but at first, he was still arrogant. Even when he was trying to woe her heart, he said that she cannot be like Cinderella, but instead the little mermaid. ” The little mermaid. Gil Ram Im will always be stuck between the two worlds. After you stay like invisible person, then just disappear from me like a bubble.” (From what I understand, the Korean version of  The Little Mermaid is a tragic tale of a mermaid who wants to be human, but got stuck between being human and mermaid. In the end, she just disappears into bubbles.)

As the story develops, he loves her more than he gave credits for. Something happened ( I don’t want to be a spoiler just yet), her life was in a critical condition. Kim Joo Won made his resolve, ” I’ll be your little mermaid, I’ll be next to you and then I’ll be disappear like a bubble.”

Annie Upside-Down

This is what I wrote back in 9th grade…The topic was fantasy… So I wrote about a girl who always daydream, and fantasize about her life… Some of the jokes might only apply to my school, for some certain teachers were similar to the story… There also a lot of allusions to many classic fairy tales and mythology…

*You can’t escape your reality through fantasy because in the end, they’re all your imagination and nothing has changed.*

~~~~~

     People say high school life is fun and exciting. I say it’s just plain hard! Nothing about high school is fun, but worries. You see, I’m not exactly the type of girl that boys would be dying to be around, nor the type that gets all the attention. And my studies, well, I’m doing okay with school. But I have to work my head off just to get an average grade. There is one problem, though. History. History class is just scary; it even haunts my dreams! I had to work so hard, and what did I get? Well, my highest grade in history was a C-.

“Annie! Annie… would you like to repeat my last sentence?” Mrs. Bone, my history teacher, suddenly says out loud in the middle of our class. This is her third time saying it in the last 30 minutes.  I must have been drifted away in my dream world, again.

“No,” I mumble in reply.

“No what?”She looks at me with her stern eyes.

“No, ma’am!” I reply reluctantly. “Sorry!” I add just in case she would burst out yelling at me.

“If you don’t want to stay after school for detention and copy a page of a dictionary, you better start paying attention!”She say, but how can I pay attention when I don’t get a word she said? Sometime, I can see two horns on her head with her red bloodshot eyes staring at me. I bet she is way older than the pyramids in Egypt.

Rrring…. saved by the bell. I’m so glad to get out of my class. As usual, the hallway is crowded, but no one seems to notice my existence. But soon, I’ll be finding that I’m so wrong. There is someone, or something, who always finds me standout in the crowd. My absolute nightmare, the bullies. Their leader is a redheaded girl named Clarisse. If you’ve seen what Rumplestilskin looked like, you wouldn’t be too shocked to see her. But she’s worse than that! Looking at her size and appearance, I wouldn’t be surprised if she turns out to be a Cyclops’s cousin. She looks more like a college student that a high school student; bet she’s at least five years older than me.

“Hey, look who’s coming! Isn’t it the weird Annie?” Clarisse says to her fellow worshippers. I’ve tried to ignore her and walk to my locker; big mistake. “Hey, you! I’m talking to you! What? Cat got your tongue, huh?”She yells at me.

“If only my fairy godmother is here, you’re toast!”I mumble.
“What did you say?”

Once, there was a rich girl named Annie. She was the fairest of all; she was really kind and funny. Everyone adored her. She had so many servants at her mansion; one in particular was an ugly, cyclop-like girl named Clarisse. Every day, Clarisse had to do what Annie told her to, no questions.

“Did you just ignore me? Or cat really got your tongue?”Said Clarisse mockingly in the midst of my fantasy. She should at least let me finish it first. She really can be mean in every way….

‘How can I ignore someone like you? You’re like a flying bee buzzing around my ears!”Oops. Where did those words ever coming from? Just me and my stupid big mouth….

“What? How dare you?”Said Clarisse, while pushing me hard against the lockers. I am as helpless as a drowning ant. She leans so close to me that I can almost count every one of her freckles. “If I catch you walking pass me again, you’re a dead meat!”She added with evilness in her voice.

  “Annie, I’ve finally found you!” Said JubJub, my fairy puffball, in excitements as she flies jet-speed toward me.

        “JubJub! I thought you were still in Fairyland!”I’m quite surprised to see her outside of Fairyland, especially at my school. Clarisse and her gang stare in disbelief. They should be scared of me, now. I mean, they have absolutely no idea who they are dealing with. Back in Fairyland, I was one of guidance princesses that were in charge of all the fairies there; I have magic powers. But it doesn’t work outside of Fairyland. Total bummer!

        “You look like you need some help, Princess!”Said JubJub with concern. Then, she turns to Clarisse and her friends, “You guys sure need some magic lessons! Now, which one do you prefer, turning into an ugly frog, or a big, fat caterpillar?”Clarisse’s eyes turn as big as the moon; they look like they’re going to drop out of the sockets. To my surprise, she just starts screaming her head off and runs away. This would really make my day!

“Why are you smiling? You’re not supposed to have fun around here!” Clarisse yells into my ears. This is her second time in five minutes ruining my perfect fantasy. I just keep quiet. “Let’s just go! She’s not fun anymore!”She tells her friends. She has absolutely no idea how glad I am for her to leave me alone.

“Hey, Annie! Are you going to the dance?” These are the first words that Stella, my best friend in the world, whispers to me as I sit in our table for Biology class.

“The dance? I don’t know… maybe!”I whisper back.

“You must go! It’s going to be fun!”She says in excitement, maybe with a little exaggeration in her voice. She has been talking about the dance since forever.

“Why would I want to go? No one asked me to go, yet. I mean, no guy is actually stupid enough to ask me!” I reply with pessimistic.

“What are you talking about? Of course someone will ask you! Cheer up!”

“Yeah, whatever! Unless that person was in a big car accident, and damaged his head!”

“Annie, your prince will bring his white horse searching for you. It’s just that he hasn’t found you, yet!” Stella tries to cheer my dull spirit, but we both know it’s impossible.

“Well, it would be nice if that really happens….”I think to myself.

  Once upon a time, there was a handsome young prince from the Kingdom of Faraway. He would travel wide and far in a search for his true love, but he never came across a fair maiden who would fill his heart. He looked everywhere, from house to house, but each time, he always came out in disappointment. As he was losing hope, he got to a broken, old well. Hopping out of his white horse, he sat on the edge of the well. He looked into the well, and saw an ugly frog. “I couldn’t find my bride-to-be, yet. I’m just an ordinary prince who will never get married.”He told the frog.

        “But yet, your story isn’t half as sad as mine. But I consider us both as the unfortunates,” the frog suddenly told the prince.

        “Are you or are you not a demon-possessed frog?” The prince asked in a shock.

        “No, prince! I was a fair maiden in this land, until my jealous step-mother and her two daughters used a spell to turn me into this unpleasant frog.” The frog told him.

        “What can I do to save you?” The prince asked.

        “I actually don’t know… but legends say a true love kiss would work….”

        The frog suddenly turned into a beautiful girl after that; the prince was amazed by her beauty. It was love at the first sight. They lived happily ever after. The End.

“Well, I hope my life will have a turning point like that! Lucky frog!” I smile to myself. “Someday, someone will see me for the real me….” I gently laugh to myself, but maybe the word gently is the wrong way to describe it because Stella turns to  look at me with a really confused expression.

“Hey! What’s up with those dreamy eyes? You do realize that this is biology, right?” She smiles her usual teasing smile.

“Yeah, duh! I was just thinking about our lesson!” I lie.

“Yeah, right!  I know you well enough to know that you were nowhere close to be paying attention. Come on, what is it this time? A fairy? Unicorn? Or that you suddenly turn into a princess?”

“It was nothing!”I lie again, but my smile cannot escape her watchful eyes.

“Come on, just spill it! I’m your best friend, right?”

“Fine, but not now. Maybe, I’ll tell you after class!”

After I told her, Stella is laughing so hard that I’m not sure if she can stop it. That laugh reminds me so much of the loony tune cartoons. “Come on. It can’t be that funny, is it?”It’s embarrassing. She has such a good sense of humor; it’s always fun to be around her, except when she teases me.

“A frog? You imagined yourself to be a frog? That is way funnier than when you imagined Mrs. Bone as an error talking machine that couldn’t do anything but talk all day!”

“Oh, that! Don’t even mention it; I got in trouble afterward, remember?”

“Yeah, it’s logical! You couldn’t even answer her simple question!”

“Hey, I was a lot more confused than Alice in Wonderland! She was talking so fast, even faster than Cinderella’s fairy god-mother reciting her spell! At that rate, Mrs. Bone could make seven more pumpkin chariots. And her lesson is a millions times more confusing than the Trojan War”.

“I think it’s just you and your wild imaginations!” Stella says matter of fact-ly. “You always let your imagination get in your way! In short words, you’re daydreaming too much!”

“I do not!”I ty to argue, but we both know who is right. “I only daydream when I have nothing to do!”

“If you count paying attention in class as nothing to do, you’re right!” She interrupts.

“Well, that… I was just too distracted….” I was never good at giving good reasons.

“Then, don’t get too distracted. You can’t live by your imaginations, can you?”Stella is always logical. She would have such a hard time figuring things out in Wonderland if she tries to be this logical.

Amazing Adventure

lolz..here is what I wrote back in 8th grade English class…just randomly found it it my hard-drive… Now that I look back, I had quite a lot of grammar mistakes, and the story plot is also pretty shallow…. ^.^

~~~~

The smell of morning woke me up! What a good morning to start! With singing birds outside my window, it surely was a sign of another cheerful day to begin. I hopped out of my soft bed ready to start my day. Suddenly, a loud anxious knock came. “What an early visitor!” I exclaimed. To my surprise, it was my friend, Mia, who had never before started her day right after sunrise.

“Hi, Lila!” Mia exclaimed with a smiling face. But I had known her for so long to know that something was up in her head. “I need your help to find my lost magical necklace! I think I dropped it yesterday on my way to Magic Meadow. But last night, I’ve probably look through every single place, I still couldn’t find it there! You got to help me! With that smart brain of yours, we really have to find it! I’m sure we’ll find it!”

“Wait! Wait! You don’t have to talk that fast! So you lost your bracelet, and couldn’t find it… Then of course, I’ll help you find it!”

“The last time I saw it was here, while I picked wild flowers,” Mia said. The bracelet can’t be anywhere farther!” But it had been proven wrong.

“Excuse me? Did you just say a lost bracelet?” asked a tiny voice behind a pink rose which belonged to a flower fairy.

“Yes! Did you happen to see it?”  Mia excitedly asked.

“It was bright silver with many heart and star charms, right?” the fairy awkwardly replied.

“Oh… you indeed saw mine!!! Where is my little precious treasure now?” Mia asked starting to be impatient.

“I’m sorry! But a talking deer took it yesterday. It was such a price for a trader like Bean the deer. . Magical as it was. If you really want it back, I can take you to Bean. Beside, my name is Flora! Flora the Rose Fairy” said the friendly little fairy.

“Okay…Flora, where does Bean the deer live?” I asked. “It’s okay if he lives nearby. You don’t have to waste your time with us. You can just give us the direction.”

“Oh… it’s really fine. I don’t mind taking you to him. Beside he lives in the Far Fast by the sea. There’d be lots of strange things if you are new to the route,” Flora hesitantly said. “I’ve heard there’re evil giant fire falcons that are always after the travelers, and many more bad things!”

“But I really want it back. I don’t care what lie beyond that forest, I just want my bracelet back!” Mia said, a little too loud.

“If you rally want it back so bad; then we must go!” I said.

“Then what are waiting for? Can we go now?” Mia said, walking away already.

“Mia, wait!” I called after her. “Don’t you want to go back to your place to pack up first?”

“Thank you, Lela! I almost forget about it! I’ve always known you’re a great help!” Mia said with relief. “I can’t stand things without you.” Mia’s voice already started to fade away as she turned straight back home. She had changed a lot, not often before that was she in a hurry.

A few hours later, we found ourselves on a tiny narrow track in the middle of a wilderness which hardly anyone used. With a heavy bag on my back, it was not going to be easy.

“Are you sure you want to do this?” Flora asked sounding a bit terrified.”

“Anything it takes to get my bracelet back! You have no idea how important it is to me. It was magical; luck always seen to be with me every time I wear it!” Mia told us about her magical experiences.

We walked up a mountain when suddenly the sky became dark. A heavy wind started howling and blowing little falling leaves all around us. Huge raindrops also started to pour down. We ran as fast as we could. As for Flora, she was hiding in my bag, because she couldn’t go through strong wind. Looking for a shelter in the wilderness was not easy. By the time we found a little cave, we all were soaked.

“I’mmm….sooo….c..cold!” Mia trembled against her cold; she became so weak after the accident. I could hardly recognize her voice. She lay down on the hard ground, hardly moved an inch. It seemed like she was mumbling to herself in her deep sleep.

“Is Mia any better?” Flora came flying in. She was trying to gather some information about the talking deer. “The storm had washed all of his footprints. But a fairy told me that she saw a talking deer a while ago before the storm. We must hurry to catch up with him!”

“We can’t go without Mia! She’s having a really bad fever! It would take days for her to recover, but we won’t have enough food for that long. Flora, please do something!” I begged the fairy to help us. Mia hadn’t moved an inch since then; Flora was my only hope.

“Lela! Look… I really wanted to help, but I can use my power only for emergency case. Beside, they’re almost gone! I really can’t!” Flora said looking a bit sad. Still looking downward, she said, “But this might help!” Holding her pink gemmed flower necklace from her neck, she put it around Mia’s neck. “This is my magic fairy necklace. It might heal her, but it also depends on her courage. All the rest depends on herself.” Flora explained.

Nothing particularly happened beside the fact that the necklace became bigger and fitted perfectly around Mia’s neck. But no sudden blast of light came from the necklace as I expected. It was almost hopeless when suddenly Mia’s motionless fingers started moving. “Mia! Wake up! Wake up!” I called. “Flora! Did you see that?” I asked excitedly.

“See what?” Mia confusingly asked while trying to get up.

“Mia! You’re alright!” Lela and I gasped at the same time.

“I’m fine! What happened? I remember I rolled down the hill. But I can’t feel anything hurting.

“That’s because you’re wearing Flora’s magic necklace!” I explained.

“Oh, thank you, thank you Flora! You’re a great fairy friend!” exclaimed Mia while trying to give Flora a hug.

“We should leave now since Mia got her strength back. The faster we go, the sooner we’ll catch up with Bean.” Flora said logically.

So we began our long journey as fast as could. Walking through the forest was not that comfortable as I’ve thought. I got a queer feeling that we were being watched by someone or something mysterious, and it was hard because it was on the dark side and we were on the bright side. Suddenly, a high pitched noise came from above our head which beloned to a strange looking bird.

“Run!” Flora shouted. “It’s the giant fire falcon! Run!”

Mia started running and I also started running for my life as well. We ran together not dared to look back but we could feel the bird chasing behind us. Flora was trying to use her magic sand but I guessed it was running short. “Stop chasing after us! You evil giant” I shouted back, but still did not dare to look back. Unfortunately, we ran into a sudden dead end. In front of us was a cliff!

“Stop your evil plan! You evil monster!” Mia shouted; the falcon amazingly stood still.

“Nah… I won’t stop my precious hunt and let my food get away!” That was when I became very surprised. I knew there were a lot of talking deer and horses, but I’ve never known a talking giant fire falcon!

“BOO!” shouted the nasty fire falcon trying to scare us off.

As soon as the falcon shouted, Mia stepped backward causing her to screamed, “Ahhh…Someone help me!!!” She accidentally miss stepped from the cliff and fell off.

“Mia!” I screamed. Without thinking, I jumped down. “Mia!” I kept screaming while I was going down and down the cliff. “Mia! Wait!” I tried to catch her hands, but it was impossible when all the wind was rushing all over my face making it harder to see properly.

“Lela! Mia!” Flora came flying down to us. Waving her hands around us, Flora gave us some of her magic sand. I could no longer feel the rushing wind, but a firm hold which gradually let us down. “I tried my best! The magic sand is almost out! Without it, I can’t fly nor use any magic; I’d be just an ordinary little magicless fairy.”

“It’s okay! We know you tried your best!” Mia tried to comfort the fairy.

“Yeah… beside it was none of your business but you still kindly helped us…” Without even finished my word, I felt a sudden drop. “ Ahhh… what’s happening? Ahhh… Help!” I screamed on the top of my lung.

“Oops! Sorry…!!! The sand just ran out…!” Flora screamed back while she was also falling down and down and down.

“How…do…you…this…go?” Mia screamingly asked me, but the wind cut off some of her words.

“What?”I shouted back hopping she hear it.

“How …far…you…think…go…?” Mia repeated her words, but some were still cut off by the wind.

“I don’t know!” I replied, half shouted, half mumbled to myself.

“Oh my goodness! You’re alive!” was what I heard when I tried to open my eyes.

“Where am I?”I wanted to say, but my voice was nowhere to be found.

“Don’t get up now! You’re badly injured!” said a voice.

I rested as the person directed me. “Where am I? Who is this person talking to me? Where are Mia and Flora? Had something bad happened to them?” a lot of questions seemed to be popping up in my head.

“She’s awake!” the same voice I heard said.

“Oh, really? You better tell her friends the news!” said another voice.

I tried to get up but I collapsed back into the bed. “Excuse me, Sir?” I finally gained back my voice. “Who are you?” I asked looking at a green fat, round creature.

Lela, dear! I am Rumplekiskin the Greeniar. We Greeniar live in this place called Twilightzone. Your friends are waiting for you in the other room. They should be here any minute now!” as soon as Rumplekiskin finished, Mia and Flora came in.

“Lela! We’re glad to know you’re alright!” Mia said happily.

“Thanks to Rumplekiskin who had saved us!” Flora tried to explain the story. She couldn’t fly anymore; poor little Flora.

“Greeniars are always happy  to help others. I heard you are on some kind of an adventure, looking for a charm bracelet. Right? If being so, I’ll provide you foods and water for your journey. But now, do you mind having dinner with us?” Rumplekiskin politely asked.

“We’d be honored.” I replied trying to be polite and proper.

“You see … Twilightzone is a strange place. It has no sunlight, there is only nighttime. So when you travel, you have to recognize some stars. The most important star is the North Star which is the brightest in the sky.” Rumplekiskin told us.

We were packing up for our next stop when Rumplekiskin came telling us, “Keep following the North Star until you see a big cave. The cave, indeed, is magical. I assumed it still is magical. Once you’ve walked through, you’ll see sunlight from the other entrance. So the cave is the gate to Twilightzone.”

We thanked Rumplekiskin for his food and hospitality. When we were ready to set off, Rumplekiskin gave us another bag of food and water. We kept follow the North Star, the brightest of all. After walking for a while which seemed to be mile and miles, we saw a big cave.

“It must be the cave which Rumplekiskin was talking about.” Mia said.

We walked into the complete darkness of the cave. Then, we could see some light in the distance. We did get to see sunlight again after we passed the cave.

“The sea town would be right beyond the hill!” said Flora while sitting on my shoulder.

We walked up the hill. Surely did we see the sea town. The town was a busy town with many trading ships.

“Hurry! Before Bean sell my bracelet!” said Mia, getting impatient again.

Fortunately, Bean hadn’t sold Mia’s magical charm bracelet. “How do I suppose to know that it’s really yours?” Bean asked Mia. Obviously, he didn’t want to give up the bracelet.

“Please believe me! It’s really mine. If it wasn’t my bracelet, I wouldn’t want to come this far just to get it!” replied Mia who looked like she was about to burst out crying.

“Please… she really want it back!” I said, trying to convince Bean the Deer.

“Bean… We have known each other for so long. For the sake of this friendship, may you please return the bracelet back its rightful owner? Pretty please?” Flora begged.

“Okay…okay… I give up! You guys are impossible.” Bean finally said.

“Thank you, thank you! Thanks a million!” Mia burst out, while trying to give the deer a huge hug.
