Welcome to House Crew, the crew site of Powerhouse! (Imagine that.) ;)
A couple of important notes before we get started:
-Purebreds will be, well, purebred, with only one breed file in their history. Mixies are sorted by their face type. In both of these categories there may be Petz that were bred with an overwriting file, but as they are all still comprised of original PF Magic/Ubisoft breeds, they're still sorted there. (The only overwriting files that are kept separated are muttlies and beagles.) Hexed breed Dogz and Catz is where the Petz bred with a hexed, non-overwriting breed come in. Some of them will be obvious (unicorns and pet rocks and dinosaurs and such), some not so much. But if they have a non-original breed in their family tree, that's where they go. The Hexed Petz page is where all of my hexed .pet files I've adopted from others are.
-Yes, I do have a lot of Petz. This is the result of my having played Petz for about nineteen years on and off. While I haven't kept every Petz I've bred or adopted, I've kept a fair portion of them, and that will be reflected in the sheer numbers on some of the pages.
-Following from the previous note, I have been adopting Petz online almost as long as I have been playing the game. While I have been keeping better track of where I'm getting my Petz in the past few years, I wasn't as meticulous back when I was a lot younger. Hence, a number of these Petz are from "unknown". If you happen to recognize a Petz of unknown origins and know where it came from, please let me know in a comment! I have also listed URLs when I have them. (Some no longer exist, and thus are links to the site through the Wayback Machine.)
-And following that second note... I'll put in a big THANK YOU here to all the Petz owners who have offered me adoptions, downloadables, and/or grabbags over the past nineteen years. I love each and every one of my Petz, and I am grateful to all of you for helping me add to my Petz family... even if I can't remember a lot of you! ^^;
-Regarding litter requests--all but a handful of my purebred Petz are for Petz 5 only. The mixies are, well, a mixed bag. Some of those are also Petz 5 only, but I have a growing number (and probably some of my more conventionally pretty mixies) in Petz 3/4. If you'd like a litter for P3/4, let me know in a comment and we can figure out which Petz are usable and work something out. (Of course, if you want a litter for P5, ask away!) I'm fine with inbreeding and gender flipping if you are.
-Anonymous commenting is on, so you don't need an LJ to leave any breeding requests, questions, or other comments you may have. :)
My show Petz
There's a chapter two of my rocketshipping fic! A CHAPTER TWO, I TELL YOU!
(Somebody stop me.)
Of course, writing that chapter two meant I had to retitle the whole thing, and adjust the summary. But such is the life of a writer who had no clue what she's doing. ;)
Hello all readers,
I'm sure you've all heard by now the rumors regarding LJ's servers moving. I'm not sure what to make of the implications, whether they be not a whole lot changing on this end, the possibility of compromised security, or even the whole site being shut down. Truth be told, I'm rather skeptical of the doomsday predictions, but just to cover my bases (ie, since I keep all of my Petz records here and I reeeeeeeeeeeally don't want to have to reformat all of that if the worst happens), I have created a Dreamwidth account, which is here: https://commander30.dreamwidth.org/
My same username, very simple. Right now I've migrated everything over, although there's still some tweaking I need to do.
That said, I don't really plan on actually completely moving there unless LJ really does catastrophically implode in on itself. Right now it'll serve as a backup in case I need it, and if the (few) communities I follow here do make the move I'll be there with them. However, at least of right now I still plan on mainly posting here (or at least cross-posting). My journal's fairly quiet anyway--I don't blog as much as I did even five years ago, let alone ten years ago. But I do still want to keep this up for the life updates I make a few times a year, as well as those times I want to talk about fandomy things. Again, I do both of those far, far
less than I used to and neither me nor anyone else would lose many tears over my inability to do so if that would come to pass, but I do want to keep the option open.
And, again, I want to keep all of my Petz crew pages and show records up and running lol
Might as well make a life update while I'm here... things are still going well for us. No major changes in work, location, situations, etc. Well, other than I'm going be not only an aunt again, but a TWIN aunt again! My husband's brother and his wife are expecting twins in the spring. My poor Lydia, lol... she'll have four cousins and they'll all be twins, two sets of them. It's hilarious. But also, of course, super exciting! I can't wait to be a twin aunt again. They don't know the sexes yet, but they should soon. They did say it looks like they're identical, so most likely they'll be either GG or BB. Girls are more fun to shop for (I know this not only from my own daughter but also from back when my nieces were little), but on the other hand, it would be nice to have a nephew (or two, in this case). ;)
Fandom-wise, I'm still writing fanfic when I can (yes, more Rocketshipping... a continuation of my previous fic, in fact, and it's coming along slowly but surely) but not really watching or reading anything right now. Just keeping busy with life in general, trying to work out a bit more, and playing the new Pokemon games. I finished Sun a week or so ago, and now I'm doing a Wonderlocke on Moon (it's like a Nuzlocke, but instead of keeping only the first Pokemon I catch in any given area, I wonder trade it, and I keep THAT one. Makes things very random and interesting).
That's about all from me for now. Hope everyone had a good New Year's. :)
It's that time again! Yes, for me to crawl out of the shadows, prove that I'm still alive, and info-dump uninteresting information about my year!( Year in review: 2016Collapse )
Yeah. 2016 wasn't anything exciting or memorable for me, at least compared to 2015. But it certainly wasn't a bad year, either, so I am not at all complaining about that. :)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Maybe I can ring in the new year by finishing the fanfic I'm working on. Hoping I'll be able to soon! (DAMN YOU TEAM ROCKET)
We're back. Survived the family reunion. My MIL will be bringing Lydia back Friday afternoon.
The reunion itself went alright... it was definitely great to see family I hadn't seen in awhile... but the aforementioned crap my in-laws pulled, in addition to the expected headache of making a six and a half hour trip with a toddler, PLUS new crap from my mom, has made James and I agree that we pretty much won't be doing this again... or at least not until Lydia is much older.
Actually, and alluding to how crappy the trip down there was... I was actually at the point that I was more than happy to leave Lydia with my in-laws and let them have to deal with driving her back here. My main worry was that she would be inconsolable when we left, but we actually all ran an errand this morning and then James and I left from there back home, so we weren't "abandoning" Lydia at her grandparents' house and so she was totally fine with us leaving. (Granted, I kind of think she would have been fine regardless. She is totally fascinated by dogs, and my in-laws happen to have three. Lydia's pretty much in heaven there with the dogs and anyone else is chopped liver when they're in the room... and of course the dogs are fascinated by her too, so they are rarely away from her side lol)
I apologize for any typos... I've had a few glasses of wine. After this weekend, it's pretty much a given lol
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Our plan, and we told my in-laws this, was to stay with them until Tuesday. The family reunion gets over on Sunday afternoon, but to spend a little more time with them and to not be rushed getting home we were planning on leaving Tuesday morning. Simple, right?
Well, apparently they thought that meant that the TWO OF US were leaving and that they would keep Lydia for the entire rest of the week.
WHERE THE HELL DID THEY GET THAT FROM?!?!?!?
And, of course, to avoid drama... THEY'RE GOING TO GET LYDIA THE REST OF THE WEEK!
Fuck this. I'm never going to a family reunion again.
eta: James and I are planning on purposely making ourselves sick/sicker (he's sick today and I was Monday) in order to have a decent reason to not go at all. Wish us luck lolololol
I wrote another one. Also cross-posted to AO3.
More adult, more rocketshippy, more... melons. I guess. Why am I still giving the Pokemon anime any of my time and attention, again? Oh right... it's stuff like this. YEEEEEHHHHS
Life's been busy for me, as usual. Currently trying to deal with the fact that in a mere twenty days from now, I will no longer be a twenty-something. Trying to simultaneously enjoy the last of my twenties while also make my mind get used to thinking of myself as... thirty. Sounds weird.
Especially as I sit here posting near-smut fanfic of children's cartoons, you think I would have outgrown this years ago...
Hope you're all doing well. :)
|Pour Some Sugar On Me -Def Leppard|
|fanfic, wtf|Here it is, as promised. Also here if you'd prefer to read it on AO3.
It's fanfic for the goddamn Pokemon anime, and I can only attempt to save face by assuring you that the fic's about Team Rocket, and ONLY Team Rocket.
Ahem. Okay. So back awhile ago when I mentioned that I've been playing the Pokemon games despite never playing them as a kid, that did NOT mean I was watching the anime. Even my husband agreed with me that the anime is terrible. In fact, I remember him showing me some episodes on hulu so we could laugh at them. We first watched an older episode and both cringed. Then we watched the first episode of the XY series, and I distinctly remember both of us saying... "...that's not as bad as I thought it would be." Mind you, the bar was VERY low, but let's give praise where it's due.
My husband lately, because he's an idiot or something, has been watching the episodes of the XY series on Youtube, and has been telling me about them, of course. Always peppered with the whole "This is actually a lot better than the earlier episodes." He finally blabbed enough that I watched a few episodes with him. And laughed at how stupid it was (while also acknowledging that the animation is actually halfway decent--I'm sure they have a better budget now than in the earlier days, but I can't help it, I'm an animation snob, and the quality of animation is always one of the first things I notice. So long story short, the animation's decent enough that it doesn't bother me).
And... I kept watching episodes. And I don't know why! This show is so stupid. SO stupid. I can acknowledge that it's far better than it was when it started while still pointing out how STUPID this show is. I don't care about Ash or his friends, they're whiny and annoying and STUPID. The Pokemon saying nothing but their names will never not be STUPID. It's just... argh. So, so stupid! Why the fuck am I watching this?!
Rhetorical question, of course, because that fanfic I just wrote and posted shows exactly why the fuck I'm watching this. Team Rocket. Goddamn Team Rocket! Yes, they're stupid too, but at least the show did that on PURPOSE and doesn't expect you to cheer for their stupidity. Besides, they're a hoot! You know me and my villain love, especially super hammy villains. Here's a whole TEAM of them! Goddamn you Team Rocket, stop making me watch this show! This is so much more than, say, Phineas and Ferb, a show I admit I watch for the villain... because while I'll admit I probably wouldn't be super interested in the show if it was just, well, Phineas and Ferb, even if it was just them it wouldn't be a bad
show. But god, this pile of crap show! And yet I'm still watching it! Please, someone, spin off Team Rocket to their own show so I can see them just bungle around the countryside and try to go about their day-to-day lives without Ash and Co to muddle it up. I would watch the SHIT out of that!
...I think I've made my opinions clear, lol.
Also, as alluded to in my previous entry, I was happily ship-free while coming up with a fanfic idea, but my husband introduced me to, I guess it's called Rocketshipping. I figured people probably did ship Jessie/James, of course, but I was happy detached from that... until my husband showed me EVEEERYTHING. Goddammit. So, yes, I do ship them now, and it's all my stupid husband's fault lol. It's his fault for making me watch this show in the FIRST PLACE
More fanfic (that is way more ship-fueled, because goddamn my husband) may possibly be following. For right now I'm just going to take a break and think very hard about my life choices.
Just thought I'd announce that I started writing a new fanfic last night. I blame my husband 10000000% for making me watch this show in the first place, which I will not name right now because
I'm being a vague asshole my fifteen-year-old self would smack me if she knew what show I was actually willingly watching. Yeah, that's it. Actually, the me up until a year or so ago would have smacked me. I'm still smacking myself mentally.
Anyway. I will also state if I write any more fanfic about this show, and specifically the characters I'm writing about (and let's face it, they're the only characters I'll be writing about because they're the reason I'm watching the show since I'm predictable as fuck), I blame my husband again a thousand times over the original amount, because after I told him I was planning on writing fanfic about these characters and he made a perverted comment about pairing them up (because there's a reason we're married and perfect for each other), I told him "Actually, I don't really ship them. I'm not opposed to the idea of shipping them, but they're not giving me anything either positive or negative shipping-wise." His response was "here, let me fix that for you."
A few Youtube videos later and FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOU AS IF I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SHIPS
So anyway, I'll post the link here when it's finished and posted. I know I've worried about jinxing myself in the past, but this fic should be fairly short and I've already gotten a good start, and I'm feeling pretty good about it and know where I want to go with it. So I'm hoping it will be finished by the end of the month. :)
Also, speaking of the husband, we celebrated our four year wedding anniversary a little over a week ago. We both forgot to say anything about it on Facebook, and as we all know, nothing's official unless it's online, lol. We did go out to eat with Lydia, though... next year we're getting a sitter lol. Lydia actually does fine in restaurants for her age, but I still need to cut up her food, make sure she doesn't drop plates on the floor, remind her to drink from her sippy cup... yeah.
That's about all from me lately. How have all of you been?
(first pic was from family pics taken yesterday, second pic from today)
Would you believe Lydia is one year old today? Because I can't. And yet I can, miss "I can stand up by myself and keep insisting on using the spoon myself during meal times (even though I'm nowhere near proficient with it, I still want to do it myself dammit)".
Happy birthday, sweetie!
(Day four of the Petz gameplay will be up... sometime. After this past week and especially today I just need to relax and do absolutely nothing for a bit.)
