ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.Via Tumblr
An illustration of Genjyo Sanzo I found from Zero-sum online's blog. Rather nice~
Also, I found out some time ago, that Yamashita Tomoko has a short story called 'Minun musiikki'. It is rather rare and interesting to find manga with Finnish name. \(*0* \)
Literally the title means 'my music', although the word musiikki should in this case have ending '-ni', so that it'd be 'minun musiikkini'. Small grammar mistake~ lol
SiH has translated the story, it is the third chapter of one volume collection Yes It's Me

You are weirder than 65% of other LJers.)
Find out what your weirdness level is!
lol Only that weird? I write simplistic stuff? Awesome. Hey, you people should have no problem figuring out what I mean with the details of my stories! xDDD

What? What? What? I finished something, yes.
I have not been posting lately, and this is not exactly telling anything of my current life, but yeah. I am proud of myself. I can cross one thing over in my 'to write'-list. ^^
I think Rafael turned out perfectly in this one. Which is scary cause he sounds so terribly weird, at least to me. I think the transparent existence of Clara left a hole in the life of the mansion that no one could have predicted. She did only little, but was a bigger being than any of the servants thought. Haha, I have this all off image of her in my mind...
Next time I post a fic, I guess it'll be about this rp again. lol But I try to write something others could read too... **;
