Year of the Dragon, One Coins, and a Meme


Year of the Dragon and I am a Dragon RAWR!
Looking forward to a great year for all of us!


Speaking of great, guess what came in the mail today?



Okay, so I ordered the Yukimura and Atobe ones in July. The second Yukimura just came from my friend. She was getting me a gift for Christmas and said that it wasn't going to arrive until January so I was all like "What could it be??? You didn't have to get me anything". And then the box arrived today and I opened it and saw a smaller wrapped gift in the middle… which looked the same size and shape as the one coin boxes that were laying next to it. So I read the note and it said "… but I couldn't give up Atobe, Oshitari, or Niou, but I hope you like it anyway!" By my powers of logical deduction, I guessed Yukimura and was like "I was right!" when I opened it and proceeded to flail hardcore.

Yes, I'm keeping both as Atobe's bodyguards XD What a great day!




So much badassery in one picture!


My favorite three from Hetalia (Austria, Prussia, and Sweden… not pictured in that order) Although I am missing my top favorite England


Singles tennis match? Or a battle of war? Lol! Maybe they can just go get tea and biscuits together :)


The PoT ones look more like middle schoolers here… cause the Hetalia guys are taller and their eyes are smaller XD Triangular formation!

You're welcome. I really do love your writing <3

So cute! Atobe flanked by two Yukimuras... at first I thought you duplicated him on the computer. Hee, placing the Hetalia ones and the PoT ones like this makes it look like they're going to have an EPIC battle!

Aw, I'm still happy that you like my fanfiction. I haven't written very many Tenipuri ones? XD;

Hehe, Laser Beam and Rondo. I teach that to almost all of the characters I choose when I play Form the Strongest Team (one of the PS2 Tenipuri games). ♥ I would so love to be able to perform Laser Beam!
absolutehymn007
Jan. 24th, 2012 05:01 am (UTC)
Lol! I can see myself duplicating him if he was against a white wall (suddenly, I feel as if I need to make an army of Yukimuras). But nope - they're two very real figures sent by two different people :D That battle would be so EPIC too! I had fun with it. My other figures of that size (but with the pole going into their backs) are Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji and Roy Mustang and Lelouch (he's a voice mascot). I also have a very large Roy Mustang figure (which would make the one coins go up to his knee) and a medium sized Sebastian figure. I have four Hetalia keychain figures (Austria, England, Japan, and America) that are a bit smaller.

Basically, I need to assemble everybody in random EPIC scenes. I think Boba and Jango Fett and Yoshi need to be in on this too. I just feel like being crazy apparently

Yeah, but your Tenipuri ones are <3 <3 <3 I really just love your writing in general so you're one of my favorite authors ever.

My backhand (my strongest move) is almost always straight and goes towards the baseline. It just needs to go a bit faster lol. It feels good to be able to do. You have good move choices for that game! :D

Oh I'm sure! It's so... unique lol. I don't know how I would describe that to someone who has never seen him before.

Lol, that makes snese to me - Happy Birthyear! Thank you very much! :D

PS - Got your message. I'm going to see if I can get it done sometime this week. If I have any questions, I'll let you know.

They really are! Aw, I'm sorry to hear. Hopefully a group order sneaks its way onto LJ - so many people wanted one too!

Sakaki for the win!!!

Ps - I saw your latest post with the pictures and everything, but I am unable to view them at home on my slooooow dial-up internet. Just wanted to let you know that I'm interested to see what they are when I go to a wifi spot tomorrow :)

Congratulations on the starting of your year! <33
Hahaha~ somehow... in the end you have two Yukimura's ^^;; But OMG they're soooo cute! *___*
(hello there Austria~)


Wow that meme! :D I need to re-read it ò_ó
The first part you already explained to me so, I have no comments I think >_<
But wow!! You have a LOT of goodies *___* And the manga volumes~

Hmm... I think I see similarities -or something that makes me feel it has sense- as for your favourite characters but I can't see it for your less favourite ones! Some help? :D

Sanada+Yagyuu+Atobe!? You really are an strong minded person, aren't you?

T___T Can I go to your country and become your Yukimura for the cosplay? *laughs*

"High-intensity matches!" hahahaha!! Sure you are like them, ne? :)

I loved to read your answers~ that meme is so funny! ^^
absolutehymn007
Jan. 24th, 2012 08:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much!

<3 <3 <3 Austria. He's my second top fav (England is ahead of him just by a little bit). They are very very adorable!

Lol, I didn't realize how much I collected until I thought about it. I think it's because they're all packed into boxes until I get a job somewhere and move to be able to display them. I owned only eleven volumes for the longest time (random Fuji ones and the Rikkai arc) and then a friend of mine was really getting rid of fandom merchandise (she was an obsessive collector... here entire room just had fandom in it and had a fifteen foot wide and about 6 feet tall bookcase of just manga) and she had Volumes 1-21, which she gave to me for $1 each (considering that one book is $7.99 before tax, that is a DEAL). She's actually selling quite a few series for $1 a piece and other merchandise for ridiculously cheap 'cause she just wants it gone.

My favorites are all hard workers with some intense determination, a lot of talent, quite intelligent, and exude confidence (in rather different ways). My least favorites usually fall into two categories: 1) Hyper, Super Cheery, Clingy, Whiny, Not Independent and 2) Jerky, Bitter, Super Cold, I don't care about what I'm doing. I realized I forgot Kintarou and Horio in that list.

EXTREMELY strong minded lol. I like perfection and pursuing goals and overcoming obstacles and fierce competition. XD
I'm also all about hard work and honor and integrity.

Umm, yes! Come and visit me someday after I get stuff for my Sanada and Yagyuu cosplay! It would be a fantastic time :)

I like winning by talent and determination! The matches I play where it's decided by who messes up the least (like if both players are having a so-so day) aren't that thrilling.

Glad you had a good time reading!

You know that when there are 2 Yukimura's, you're basically fucked 8||||

Ahahaha, awww Hymn, you're so sweet! ♥

Wow, you have so much merchandise! Dedication!

Platinum vs Silver would be such a good match, I AGREE.

Laser Beam is a very popular move everyone wants to learn! Heee ;D

I feel I must do this meme 8|
absolutehymn007
Jan. 24th, 2012 09:03 pm (UTC)
Oh yes! There's Double Trouble right there!

♥ I LOVE your art dear. So so so so so much!

I got lucky with finding merchandise that I wanted. My wallet is happier now that I am fairly set on things!

Wouldn't it be though? I just think that combination of players would be fun and interesting! And a full Atobe vs Sanada or young!Sanada vs young!Tezuka or inner-Troika would be just fabulous too!

Lol - I didn't realize Laser Beam was THE move to learn until I read everyone else's memes. It's the pose, isn't it? The ultra cool pose of coolness? Or is it the fact that it makes a giant yellow beam in the anime and it's about the straightest thing from the series? XDD

Lol, double Yuki :D (I'm just lazy to type Yukimura, so I started calling him Yuki XDD)
PoT and Hetalia figures look great! :D Oh Prussia!

Your PoT meme reminds me that I should continue with 30-day PoT meme I had started some time ago ... XD (Ended at first day...trolling :D)

HAPPY NEW CHINESE YEAR! :D

Jan. 24th, 2012 09:10 pm (UTC)
I was considering naming one Yuki and the other Mura to tell them apart lol. 'Cause I turned their heads two different directions lol. Thank you - I think they look great too! Prussia is some legit :D

At least you started it! XD I kind of forgot I did that for a while... and never finished updating the master entry of it. I started the 30 Days of Hetalia one and forgot it halfway through :( I should finish that.

YAY!! Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday!

*hugs Prussia's awesomeness too* He's legit - I love him.

That meme spread like wildfire. I think there were only two people that did the meme on my flist before me... and now practically everyone else has lol. LASER BEAM is a good move. Nothing like blasting a straight shot towards the baseline :) And yes, Platinum vs Silver would be interesting and intense and all forms of epic!

Hmmm... I'm debating whether or not I'm bothered enough to steal this meme. Just to say that I'd probably date Chinen and that when done oh-so-very-right Sengoku/Atobe is amazing xDD

Those coin figures... damn, I'm starting to want them now xD even though I have my eyes on these pretty Penguin drum figures that I'd buy, if I just had the money.

Jan. 25th, 2012 12:23 am (UTC)
Wow, Chinen huh? That's awesome - he seems to be a bit more popular than I imagined him to be :) Anything in particular that draws you to him?

Penguin drum figures?!?!?! I must see pictures! Yeah, these One Coins turned out really well. I hope you get some money to be able to get a few things you want!

Is it bad that the typical Swede is actually accurate for 30+ countryside swedes? At least it is from where I come from... XD;;;; So grumpy and annoying. Sweden in Hetalia is so much cuter.
