So I re-watched A Good Man Goes to War tonight, to refresh my memory before the new episode comes out tomorrow.

While watching, I couldn't help but think that the role of Vastra (the reptile alien) would have suited Jack Harkness much better.

Spoilers behind the cut. )

Vastra would have been a cool character to have there too, but I really felt like she was just substituting for the Captain as it stood.

I thought it was all in my head, until I read this:

Steven Moffat said he planned writing in a cameo for John Barrowman to reprise his role as Jack Harkness, but Barrowman was busy filming Torchwood: Miracle Day and was unavailable.

I think in my head, from now on I'm going to be substituting Jack in that scene. XD

I'm on the third book for my SoIaF re-read, and even before I finished the first one I realized that half of my theory was wrong.

Once again putting my theory behind the cut, even though theories don't really count as spoilers, do they? There ARE spoilers through the first three books. )

There's probably more, but that's all I could think of off the top of my head. I'm keeping my eyes open as I continue my read-through. Keep in mind, I haven't read the newest book yet, so my theory may get destroyed then and there. We'll see.

This is the masterpost for my The World Ends With You Wardrobe-breakdown project. Please note that the purpose of this breakdown is to serve as a reference for writing fanfiction, and thus does not include game mechanics.

There's a lot of room for interpretation, and compiling this has sparked a few ideas in my head. I hope it has the same affect for others!

If you find an error, or have found this resource useful, please feel free to comment and let me know! :)

Today is two for the price of one! Below the cut you'll find the wardrobes for both Joshua and Beat. Interestingly enough, both boys have fewer clothes attributed to them than Neku and Shiki, but the individual articles tend to cost a lot more.

I referenced this Item List on GameFaqs significantly, as well as the Threads List on TWEWY Wiki.

Clothes are sorted first by type (Top, Bottom, Top&Bottom, Headwear, Footwear, Accessory), then brand, then the item name, then price, then description (from the game).

In the item name column, I also included the in-game icon and the bravery stat. While I'm trying to keep the game mechanics out of these resource posts, I think the bravery's often significant as to how likely a character is to wear something. There are certain challenge related items where the stat is obviously stacked for game mechanic's purposes (such as the Angel Feather and Your Cap), but overall I find it useful.

Continuing with my The World Ends Wit You reference posts, here's Shiki's wardrobe. Please see this post for an explanation on what I'm doing. That's also where you'll find Neku's wardrobe. When I'm done all of this I'll be compiling it into one giant post (at least, that's the plan).

There are certain challenge related items where the stat is obviously stacked for game mechanic's purposes (such as Mr. Mew). I think the stat is especially important for Shiki in trying to figure out what she would wear normally, versus what she's willing to wear because of her Reaper's Game appearance. That's just my interpretation, though.

Yes, all characters can wear all articles in The World Ends With You, but a lot of articles will only activate an ability if a specific character wears it. I'm considering such articles as being specific to a certain character's wardrobe.

While I'm trying to keep the game mechanics out of these resource posts, I think the bravery's often significant as to how likely a character is to wear something. Neku requires much higher bravery to wear the few feminine articles he has in his wardrobe than his usual J of M fare. There are a few notable exceptions (such as My Phones) which have obviously stacked bravery stats for game mechanic purposes, but overall I think it's a useful tidbit for characterization.

Table under the cut! )

One of my current projects (that might never be completed, but I digress) is a The World Ends With You fanfic. The characters head out for a bite to eat. What am I going to have them order?

In most game-fandoms, this is left up to the writer's interpretation. You look at the character(s) and their personalit(y/ies) and make an educated decision, unless something is mentioned specifically in the script.

The World Ends With You incorporates your characters tastes as part of the game mechanics. Since I'm a complete dork, I referenced a Food Guide over on GameFaqs, and did myself off a neat little chart. I took the item icons from the Food List on the TWEWY Wikia. I've typed it up for easy reference, but there's no reason not to share, right? Here's hoping someone else finds this helpful!

Please note, that the game mechanics aren't referenced in here. This is a writing resource only.

[EDIT 2011/10/17: Added medicines to the chart by request]

I've been putting off re-reading the Song of Ice and Fire series, because it's dense and I've been busy. Of course, everyone is talking about it these days, since the HBO series of Game of Thrones came out, and my mother has been pushing me to re-read/watch the series because it's renewed her own interest, and she wants someone to talk to about it. Can't blame her there, I've been in that position myself.

I think she's finally convinced me though.

I was visiting her this afternoon, and she finally got me to watch the opening, which I confess looks fantastic. This lead to a brief discussion, and I casually put forth a theory I've held about Jon Snow since I originally read the first book. It's something I had thought was "obvious", but completely side-swiped her, and lead to a light debate. Of course, it's been years since I've read the books, so I didn't have my handy details to back the theory up. Now I'm going to wind up re-read the series, just to get my argument together. XD

Spoilers, except not really, behind the cut. Does it count as a spoiler when it's only a theory that may not be correct? )

There goes the rest of my summer. I'll try to resist, but it's going to be hard. And once I start, I won't stop, especially since I have the new book sitting tantalizingly on my coffee table.
