Hello, I'm Olivia and currently residing in Romania; around the internet, I mostly go by Oli and Pande, but you can call me however you want. I like ranting for hours about things like movies, manga or Photoshop and spamming people with GIFs whenever (in)appropriate. Mostly a lurker nowadays, though the frequency I spam everyone with Sailor Moon Screenshots may disprove that. I still reply to PMs, read posts and view artwork, I just don't comment the day they're posted (sometimes it may take up to a month for me to catch up!).
You can also find me on Minitokyo and DeviantArt. Used to be on Animepaper too before it tanked.

Doing ATM: crying tears of blood in anticipation of her dissertation, playing Sims 3 and various shooters
Currently following Game of Thrones, Black Sails, Modern Family, Sailor Moon Crystal and Shingeki no Kyojin.

Likes: cats, yaoi (+ plot, ideally), drawing geometry-based designs, manga, Reddit, organizing everything (and yet having a perpetually messy desk), being alone in her cave home, the pizza her best friend makes
Dislikes: not doing something, whiners, starting projects and dropping them *does it all the time*, morons, communicating for the sake of appearances

Alternating this

is giving me conflicting emotions.

You may or may not know that Japanese mangaka get plagiarized all the freaking time by other Asian artists looking to make a quick buck for cheap novels. CLAMP are probably the most plagiarized out there (TBH they have a ton of illustrations so it's no surprise).

An interesting case of plagiarism was the Kayono vs. Kazusa Takashima one from a few years back; isn't that pic lovely? Kazusa sued Kayono and lost; she had to stop publishing manga for a couple of years (public image costs added to this), while Kayono went on her merry way to churn out more shitty shoujo manga - I've read her stuff, it's not impressive.

So today, while trawling MT for tagging tasks, I came across a gallery of lovely images (because they are lovely): Wall Flower Girl, a Vietnamese light novel. Now take a look at these:

Pretty sure this is plagiarized from something too. Reminds me of this (scan not linked 'cause it was on AP).

I am highly amused by this /top-notch detective skillz, yo

On a wallpaper downloading binge

Just spent about an hour downloading and organizing wallpapers. I'm a sucker for good scenic and abstract ones, especially if the abstract ones are simpler and with pastel colors <3

If you guys are looking for anything like that, here's what I found:
9dzign (abstract & scenic)
bo0xvn (scenic)
zim2687 (scenic)
r/MinimalWallpaper (abstract, minimalistic)

And wallpaper dumps with about any type of wallpaper:

I regret nothing.

And here's a song I can't stop listening to these days:
