Something about this bloggie

Ok, I admit that I've failed somewhere before. But anyway welcome. Just a brief intro on what you should expect here:
1. Football. Not gonna post much of that any soon since season is over. :S
2. Anime, Games, etc. Just abt anything conceivable under the Japanese radar barring anything and everything Rule 34. Now that's illegal. Period. -.-;
3. Music. Everything to do with it is listed under the tab.
5. Unacceptable humour: Anything and everything is fair game here. As long as I don't get rounded up by the ISA. -.-'

6.
The Known World=Fantasy world building in process. I: Used to be glossary, now devoted to random rambling; II: Character Concepts; III: Lore.
7. der Wolf=my Fictionpress account under the moniker Tsumujikaze no Soujutsu. A Ranger's Tale is hosted under this page. :)
8. New section now upped. Maybe I should also gun for upping A Ranger's Tale here since I do have this funny feeling that traffic coming to here is way more than whatever I'll get in FP.

Statement of intent: Everything said here is a figment of personal opinion, be it me or anybody commenting. I try to be responsible, but my parents=/=parents of the world.

@Druid of Luhn: Crap. Should have remembered far earlier to give you the credit for your CSS text box code. :(

A/N: But sadly, it seems that your CSS text box code has now been halved efficiency wise. :(

That most important note I should have added: Any images posted in this blog are NOT my own stuff. I got them from Google image search, I don't earn any shit by being a thief and liar. Those responsible for the pictures, rest assured that you all are great artists in your own regards. Sadly, we all know what limited space means in terms of posting.

Latest Note: Changed alignment for my page widgets due to my worry that I can't centre align the thing.

Note on A Ranger's Tale: In case any complaining fella wants to have a legal case with me, let this be known that A Ranger's Tale is rated M by default. I've upped the swearing and somewhat a bit on the dark/gritty factor. You all have been warned, let no little boy and girl enter the forbidden realm.

Latest on ART: A Ranger's Tale now starting to kick back in gear. But I really hate the insanely fluctuating climate here in S'pore.

P.S: Oh, and one more thing. Vid below is yet another ideal OP for A Ranger's Tale.

Phase 2


River - Guandu theme

Real men are scammers

先主就袁绍,云见于邺。先主与云同床眠卧,密遣云合募得数百人,皆称刘左将军部曲,绍不能知。遂随先主至荆州。
《云别传》

When the First Lord entered Yuan Shao's service, he was reunited with Yun. Both shared the same bed while Liu Bei sent down the orders to gather men numbering hundreds. As they proclaimed themselves as soldiers of the Left General (Liu Bei), Shao was left unsuspecting. From hence onwards, Yun followed Liu Bei to the Jing Province. 
(Tales of Zhao Yun)

Analysis: Yuan Shao got scammed. Because Liu Bei was a scammer. Sun Wu (i.e. the author of Sun Zi's Art of War) on the other hand could be seen as the grandfather of all things scamming. Don't believe me?

绍遣将道路奉迎,身去邺二百里,与先主相见。 驻月馀日,所失亡士卒稍稍来集。
《先主传》

 数有战功,试守平原令,后领平原相。
《先主传》

Shao sent his men to welcome Liu Bei as he met up with the First Lord at Ye. Within months, the men Liu Bei had lost began to regroup quietly. 
(Account of The First Lord)

Upon achieving numerous exploits in the war, Liu Bei first took the magisterial office at Pingyuan, after which he assumed the post of it's High Official.
(Account of the First Lord)

See? Chen Shou said so! In fact, since Liu Bei already has his own right of reputation, will it be a long shot to say that Zhao Yun had also established himself as Liu Bei's chief cavalry? As for the cause though:

曹公东征先主,先主败绩。 曹公尽收其众,虏先主妻子,并禽关羽以归。
《先主传》

The First Lord tasted defeat as Duke Cao turned east towards him. Cao managed to capture his men, wife and Guan Yu as well. 
(The First Lord's Account)

Just don't ask me where has Zhang Fei gone. I have no idea because nothing was said in the official records. For all we know, he might have his hands full in dealing with the fact that he's a lolicon. Yes, the girl was a certified minor. But still we're talking about feudalism. Jailbaits are not that uncommon unfortunately. T_T

P.S: She's Xiahou Yuan's niece. No joke. O.O
