|Shiny Pokemon Badge Quest!
It's a new year, and I've started a new shiny hunting challenge for myself: a Badge Quest in Leaf Green.
In a BQ you have to catch a shiny before moving on to each gym battle.
And amazingly enough, my first of my quest appeared after only 165 encounters; a shiny Rattata:
Now I'm going to level her up in preparation for her first gym battle. This should be fun; taking on a rock type gym with a Rattata... XD

|Happy birtrhday to me! I has awesome birthday luck!
Today I restarted Pokemon Soul Silver in the hopes of being able to film my first ever live shiny encounter... ... and I did! After only 68 soft resets a shiny Johto starter appeared! n__n
I have a nice 'birthday' themed trainer ID number: 38787 (since I was born in 1987; hence the username Heliotrope1987). I know the ID number doesn't affect your chances of finding a shiny (as some people seem to think... >_> ) but it's nice to have an interesting one.
So here's the video of my first live shiny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58Hoj1cZUj4&feature=channel_video_title

|A Fafner, HaE comic
I posted this on Soukyuu, too, so I thought I'd post it here as well.
I was inspired by the scene from Fafner HaE soundtrack advert, where Kazuki is apparently annoyed at Misao for wearing Soushi's Alvis uniform.
Enjoy the cracky-ness. ^.^( Fafner comic - Soushi's uniformCollapse )

|Shadow : 9th May 2003 - 9th December 2010
Last night, at about 6.30pm, our beloved Shadow died.
He'd seemed his usual self throughout the day, but at around 6pm he was sitting around with his mouth hanging open, drooling and panting like he couldn't breathe, walking a few steps, and then collapsing onto his side on the floor.
We rushed him to the emergency vet, but he died on the way there in the car.( So here is my tribute to ShadowCollapse )

It was that time of year again a few weeks ago on the 6th June: Smudge Day - the day we got our first cat, Smudge (and her unnoficial birthday).
She's now 13 years old this year (and we've had her for 12 years; time sure does fly).
Poor Smudgie has become rather skinny and scraggly these last few months; not to mention that she walks around rather stiffly, and can barely even jump up onto the windowsill anymore - now she really does look like an "old woman" cat.
She went to the vet recently, and he commented on her rapid weight loss (and said she had a bit of arthritis). But said that apart from that she looked healthy enough. I just wish she'd start eating a bit more... (it's funny to think that we used to worry about her weighing too much).
So without further ado, here's som pictures of Smudgie from this year:( CLICK!Collapse )

|Today is the day...
... for Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver in English!
Yes, I just got back from the shops, and look what I bought:
Pokemon Soul Silver (and an Oscar kitty)
Oscar kitty was unimpressed, and just pulled one of his odd yawning faces...

|Helio is happy now! ^__^
According to this post I read on Soukyuu: http://community.livejournal.com/soukyuu/148152.html
... Xebec are making more Fafner! Yes! Finally a Fafner sequel after all these years of waiting! This just made my year. n_n
Now I have something to look forward to (as well as the UK version of Pokemon Soul Silver) in 2010. I can't wait to see the (hopefully yaoi-filled) reunion of Kazuki and Soushi.
*hopes for lots of KazuSou moments*
But how come when I look on the official Fafner site I can't see anything about this new Fafner, yet others seem to. Am I going blind? O_o

|Helio is sad now... ;___;
This evening in Pokemon Heart Gold I finally got a shiny Suicune to appear after 6024 SR... but thanks to my stupidity I ended up KO'ing it. >__<
I weakened it with my Sceptile's false swipe, and then for some reason I sent out my Darkrai to put it to sleep with hypnosis, and shiny Suicune ended up fainting due to Darkrai's 'bad dreams' ability.
I took a picture of it appearing though: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/Heliotrope1987/Shiny%20Pokemon/Other/P1060641.jpg
Now I'm SR'ing again. Currently at 6300 SR.
I killed my favourite shiny. I'm such an idiot! >___>

Oooh, I haven't posted in this for over a year. Bad Helio...
Anyway, here are some links to a few of the sites where I lurk about.( aCollapse )
For anyone who is interested. ... does anyone actually read this thing? o__o

|Happy birthday Smudge!
Today is Smudge, our oldest cat's birthday! Yay! She's 11 years old today, which means that we've had her for ten years in total. ^__^
Now it's time for pictures. ( Click!Collapse )

|I caught a new shiny today!
Yes, the Helio caught yet another new shiny Pokemon today; that makes 29 shinies in total (16 from random encounters/soft resetting, 13 from the PokeRadar).
Todays shiny encounter was with a shiny Regice. ^_^
I took some pictures and made a video of the captures. Which should now all be under this lovely live journel cut:( Click!Collapse )
