    Speaking of Wreck It Ralph I think it's interesting that the Japanese version of this movie is going to be called Sugar Rush. I don't know if they doing that because it'll be more marketable since AKB48 is doing one of the songs or if it's because the majority of the movie takes place in Sugar Rush. If this movie does well in Japan I would not be surprised if we see a sugar rush spin off anime or be part of a Kingdom Hearts world in future games.

    Also you can play Hero's Duty, Fix It Felix Jr. and Sugar Rush on the Disney Website. I personally like Fix it Felix better than the other games. Hero's Duty when shooting cybugs seemed to work better with the use of a digital tablet/ wacom tablet pen than the mouse. Sugar Rush the steering was kind of clunky.

    In regards to RotG, it's worth noting that the movie canonically takes place about 300 years after the book series. Mr Joyce wanted people to be able to watch the movie and not know what happens in the book and vice verse. Which is probably why they didn't delve into the origins of the Guardians besides Jack Frost. Everyone else s origins are pretty much 'read the book series'. Although they may do the origins in possible sequels, I'm not entirely sure. It would be interesting, they're kinda out there. They may just decide to make this an alternate retelling.

    I unfortunately don't read as many books as I used to. I'm saddened by this and wish I could get myself to read more. But I'm scared that what I'll read would be crap. It's not a good thing to say being a writer myself. I should read both the good and the bad, but I feel my craft has degraded and should spend more time reading quality works than not. Build myself up again.

    As for yaoi fans and shippers... I'm a shipper and I am proud to say that I am perfectly sane. If you don't like something I ship, I find one of the most pleasant things in the world is to have an entire debate on it. Sometimes it can be very fun! That is... until it degrades because someone is offended or hurt, and I will admit to being said hurt one when I was younger. But I have had perfectly rational debates with other shippers of opposing views. But I do agree with you. I have seen some of those crazy shippers. The most recent being a Cloud/Tifa fan who started yelling at me over my opinion that I prefer Cloud/Aerith on an opinion forum. I'm pretty sure this person scared away anyone who didn't hold the same views as them, plus tried to claim myself not to be a fan because I only watched the movie. Talk about a Moving The Goalposts fallacy! You're not a real fan until you've done this! No, even if you do that you're still not a real fan because you haven't done this! On and on and on. But as for the debates, they're all fun and stuff. But I'm still open to seeing the other person's point of view. I don't necessarily agree to the whole 'you like what you like and I like what I like, let's leave it at that'. No. Where's the communication? Where's the dialogue? That's a big part of being in a fandom for me. Not all of the conversations have to be bad! By the way, I support BOTH Kataang/Zutara! I also like Tyko/Ty Luko?, Tokka and Ty Lokka. I'm not really that big into the shipping for the fandom though.


    Yaoi fans, I agree completely. Yaoi fans annoy and scare the crap out of me. I happen to be friends with a lot of girls who like yaoi and fortunately all of them are sane. I wouldn't handle being friends with a more extreme yaoi fan and I've gotten into debates with them. I hate it when they call you a homophobe for hating yaoi. Or even better, supporting yaoi because it's 'cute' but being against gays/gay marriage. Or both! Just... no.

    As for MLP... Twilight because that's my name! =D
    That is all I will ever say about MLP.

    About Rise of the Guardians... I'm with Kat. I am in love with this movie, more than Brave and more than Wreck-It Ralph. I want to say very quickly that while I liked Brave somehow it disappointed me and it bothers me that I don't know why. I suppose that I wasn't expecting it to be a mother-daughter film. But I absolutely LOVE how they didn't make the witch evil! But for RotG I could say a million things. The animation was gorgeous (animation student so I am drooling over it sorry) and the...

    character designs and their personalities (again, writer) and ugh! I hate living in a small town where movies like this are only in town for one or two stupid weeks. One theatre with two rooms and frigging Twilight was held over for a THIRD week for some reason. I took my mom and her girlfriend to this movie and the girlfriend doesn't really like animated stuff and she liked Rise of the Guardians.

    Wreck-It Ralph... I was expecting more game jumping. I was expecting the known video game characters to be around more. Not my fault that was advertising. But Reck-It Ralph two has been hinted at so support it so that Mario can possibly become a main character in it! Apart from the video game fangasming, the characters were good and I liked the story. It was very emotional and I seriously almost cried. And that twist! No one I knew was expecting that twist!

    It's really all I have to say unless I did my own review myself.
