May 31st, 2009...HOLY CRAP...lol.

If you want to publish reviews for the books or the show, come by for more info. We've also got news and spoilers too. One of my girls is a goddess who works the DVR like crazy and posts up all the promos for TB. Come by and check us out!
Soo...I wrote for a new ship...lol. I suppose you guys should know that as diehard for Romy as I am...I do ship some other guys...like Michael/Maria from Roswell, Kate/Sawyer (Skate) from Lost, Brad/Naomi from Zoids...and even dabbled in a bit of bandfiction...lol. I occasionally will read fics from those other ships as well as Escaflowne...even though I don't really ship with Escaflowne. I do love Naria and Eriya and Folken. I LOVE Folken. However, I just recently really got into the Kai/Rei (KaRe) ship in Beyblade. Anyway...please know that I'm not abandoning Romyness. I'm just sort of flexing my muscles and I will be back whenever it suits me to be. I am a full time university student...with a month off school...lol. I promise not to leave so many fics in limbo. I've got parts of URX, TALTCF and my new one, SIAT written.
My X-Men obsession has not waned though...I mean, I bought X-Men 204...which proudly is my first comic and the last one that was being sold at my university's comic store...lol. Also, reading Anna Marie Chamber's new chapter to her fic, Broken Road has really reminded me of why I LOVE the X-Men...especially when you have tons of them in the plot...lol.
Basically lots of exams and midterms. Lots of assignments due. Lots of me being busy, losing sleep, getting stressed out and being really busy...again...lol. But on top of that, it was Rocktober...why might you ask? Let's see, I saw a Velvet Revolver concert up in Edmonton, because I am that crazy... that really kicked a lot of ass, I got a GN'R book called Reckless Road which is amazing, Slash's auotobiography got released, he appeared on David Letterman, Guitar Hero was released with Slash in it, my CDs finally got shipped from HMV and Romy is back in the comics. So, whilst Rocktober was incredible and fun...I've also been really busy. And I guess I was just really lazy in around August to September. But with all the stress and stuff, I am still here. I am still around. Even if I haven't jumped into the X-Men scene for about 2/3 months...don't kill me! I just sorta found a new fandom...I feel like I'm neglecting the X-Men...but...I still love Romy and reading about 204 really gave me that little push. And I will be back in the scene and reading X-fiction. I get these little story alerts which give me lots of guilt you know? But yes, I promise I am still alive. Even if VR/Slash/Duff et al take up a lot of my time...I love watching bootlegs and interviews.
June 22nd, 2007.
Goddammit! I feel horrible and all neglecting...but anyway...things have been going on...ie. my obsessions...it's hard for me to have two, never mind three. ie. Velvet Revolver, (That would be Slash there to your left, all young and in Guns) Romy and Lost...and I'm just not motivated to write when it just seems like there's no one who posts quality work anymore, when I lurk around...lol. It's nice to have Ish back...so maybe you'll be seeing me around soon. Oh and I'll be in Hong Kong for 3 weeks in July...but anyways...I'll have the laptop and 'net access, so we shall see, we shall see. I mean, what could I possibly do in Hong Kong?
I'm simba317 and I'm here to write all about my fave characters from inspirations I get from movies, television, songs etc.. cuz I'm always making up stories in my head about fictional characters and this will be a way to get that out. I AM A ROMY SHIPPER!
I love Romy fics, especially from X-Men Evolution.
I highly reccommend any of the stories that are posted in the Favorites section. There's really something for everyone. It's a total Romy must have and some that aren't really seen anywhere in other people's Favorites sections that are well worth reading. They are totally all good Romys and all of them have a good plot and what not, are mostly angsty, plus there's some humour for kicks.
For all the Rogue fans, I highly reccommend the site called Down-Home Charm, it's got a ton of fanfiction with Rogue it it, some are really good, others super full of angst and lots have Gambit in it. Plus check out Gambit Guild, The Joker and the Queen, Uncany X-Men dot net, and Song of the South; they're really good Romy/Rogue/Remy/X-Men sites. Just go to Google and look up Rogue with X-Men in brackets and use the Google Directory. There's lots of good sites and a lot of them have great links to other good sites, as well.
My favorite movie as a kid was The Lion King and that's where I get my name from. Simba was my fave character. The 317 are my lucky numbers.
Anyways, I'm a proud CANADIAN! I love Romy cuz its my fave couple and of course X-Men Evolution, although it ( Evo eps.) can be a little lame at times...
My fixation with the X-Men started when I was little and was exposed to that 90s X-Men show. Which, I guess can be kinda weird cuz I'm a girl and all but anyways... I love the movies too... though I havn't read the comics or anything.
My focus for my stories shall be Rogue and Remy. I love the X-Couple cuz what they have is real, emotional love. They love each other even though they can never touch. It's sad and in a way their relationship is ironic, I mean total playboy, gets any girl he wants falls for the only girl he can't touch. I believe their is a dynamic in their relationship that just isn't in other couples and that is why I love them so much. It's exactly the best kind of romance you can read. All the other X-couples just don't have that kind of premise and chemistry to their relationship. They have this running verbal match going on, and their lines are always the best. There's so much you can write and say about them and the fact that they can spend just as much time apart, only makes you wanna kill the writers and inject Romyness; it's that powerful. They're great together and work in a level that other couples just don't. It's a true love, they can't touch for Pete's sake. That and the fact that the Gothic Evo Rogue is awesome. Besides both characters are just so interesting by themselves, there's so much that you can do with them and the possibilities are endless.
There's lots of reasons to love the Romy relationship. I mean, it's just plain beautiful. They both think that the other is the single best thing that's ever happened to them period, but they think that they're inadequate for each other because of Rogue's touch promblems and Remy's past and other qualities. I also love it because they love each other for who they truly are. It's a no frills relationship that can't get caught up on love, it's an emotionally based relationship, because they can't touch. Also, I've always felt that Rogue love Remy for everything he's done, good or bad, and understands that, even though the past between them due to those issues is sucky. She also loves him for who he is, because she can see past the facades and such of his flirty cockiness. She really knows who he is, and loves that, not the lust that all the other girls love, other girls will love his facade, not the real him, but Rogue does, even though he's done bad stuff. Also Remy can see through to who Rogue really is, outside her coldness, her facade of being strong and such. He can see that she needs human contact, even though she shies away, and sees her strength is really fear. He also loves her even though he can't touch her, and he loves her emotionally, not just the physical. I mean in the beginning, it was a challenge, but he lost the game when he fell in love with the actual girl, and Rogue reciprocated.
I hope you all go take a look at my Favorites sections. I picked some of my absolute favorite fanfictions, and of course, they have the premedicated dose of Romy included in most, if not all of them. I know some of the stories are unfinished, but they are really good and even if the authors never finished them, they're still really good. Some are still in progress, too.
They never put enough moments with Remy and Rogue in the show, so it's up to me and other writers like me to make it up.
I support other couples too, just not as much, I can pretty much take any pairing, but the ones I write about are often my faves. I support Kiotr, Kurrty, Wandurt, Johnda, and Rolo. Those are the major ones I highly support behind ROMY. I do not support Lancitty, it just never worked for me, or Jott much, they're just too perfect to work, there's no angst. They're so cliched and it just isn't interesting to me. So there will be limited Jott in my fics and quite a bit of subtle bashing. I may not like them but I respect them... somewhat... who am I kidding?
Alright, so my dislike for them is usually dictated by how they're written in a fic, but I hate when they're portrayed incorrectly, but I still find them inssufferable at times. I have a mixed bag with them, I guess. I think they should just be together though, they deserve it. I really can't see them with different people, though I don't mind Jean and Logan in comics, though not in Evo...too young and student, people, I think they just work well as one and I hate that Emma and Scott have a relationship. I just think it's really messed up the way it went about.I just don't think they can do screwy things like that to characters after putting them through the Phoenix Saga and such, as for Romy, you can't put them through Antarctica plus dying together, practically, and still to crappy things to them, it just makes you go WTF?
Kiotr is just too cute, Johnda is just too funny to pass up, Wandurt has an interesting dynamic as does Kurrty and Rolo is just really interesting to me as is MystiqueLogan...they've just got so much that seems like unresolved sexual tension that can just somehow fuel their relationship, either that, or a jilted lovers thing going on. Oh, and my new Recruit pairings are pretty much Bobbilee/Jubby (BobbyJubilee), Rayne (RayRahne), Rahm, Sabby (SamTabby), Tabbay(TabbyRay), Amarerto(AmaraRoberto). I don't really mind the others like Jamie and Rahne, but I dislike Rahne and Roberto...I never got how they got paired together and they just don't work for me. I hate with a passion Kimy (never split up Rogue and Remy or else, unless done before DoR), Rogan, Jogan/Lean (LoganJean) except in comics and Kogan (KittyLogan) (Too old), Scrogue is lukewarm, but wrong to me, (Can be called Rott, used to cheer for, because it meant that Jott would not happen, but they're just sorta too opposite, and the things seen with Remy had way more chemistry, On Angel's Wings seemed kinda awkward at times to me, and I remembered Remy from when I was 3 and saw XTAS...I was like 'Wait, Rogue should be with the guy who throws cards..." For years, he was the guy who threw cards...I was three...until my friend told me about Gambit...I was like 'Oh him, Rogue's boyfriend', same thing happened in the movies...isn't she supposed to be with the guy who threw cards?'...all things I remembered at 3 from watching XTAS...), Rietro, Kietro (Pietro pairings bug me in general), Tonda, (very one-sided). Ryro can be fun, but just doesn't work for me. Amyro andBobby/Amaraare lukewarm.
I just can't stand anyone besides Remy with Rogue and Rogue with Remy. It just doesn't work. Oh and Jott, just kinda annoys me. Jean can be decent, yet annoying, Scott too. However, I do like them in fics, when they're done well, like in Hellfire and Brimestone...and I like fics where the X-Men are a strong family bond style unit, and love all it's members, depite picking on them sometimes. So my views on Jott tend to vary with fics, but I will always portray them mostly in my favorite way, where I lightheartedly pick on them...put make them upstanding individuals and role models to the Institute, and not snobby pricks. That just bugs me, depending on the fic though. I think it can be fun, if it's picking on everyone, but if it's just those two, it's like give me a break, they're not like that, you're stereotyping that too much, they're really good people, but human too, so don't be all up in the air with bashing. But then, I also pick on Iceman, because how can you not? It's just fun, but it's part of his character, and he asks for it.
Oh yeah, and it's not like the X-Men Evo writers don't like Jott all the time either, review Sins of the Son for reference. Jean and Scott are constantly bashed by Lucas against walls and stuff. It just shows how weak they are. Jean passes out in a comical way that made me laugh. Scott wears a dorky looking metal helmet thingy when they imprison him. Majorly funny. You see, we're not the only ones to do the Jott bashing, individual or otherwise, the writers do it too. See Duncan, and the time it took for them to get together for further reference. I sometimes understand Jean and Scott being snobby due to the Alvers/Summers dispute and Jean's look at Rogue in On Angel's Wings and her line when she broke up with Duncan..."We're so through..." Yes, see my mixed bag of Jott opinions...it really varies on a fic and my mood...and if I'm taking out anger on them.
Praise the ROMY! hehehe (Just had to include that cuz Seven Sunningdale thinks I'm schizo)
March 7th, 2005: The weirdest thing happened. I just realized how much of an insane schizo I sound like when I type my opinions in reviews, my bios and my authour's notes...Meh.
I love to rant, so if you're ever bored, check them out by reading my reviews to Agent-G's Hellfire and Brimestone, my rants before chapters, my bio here, or my review Shout Outs. I'm sure they'll either make you laugh, amused or go, 'yeah, I think so, too', so check it out.
Basically, I ship:
ROMY (no kidding, I know), Johnda, Kiotr,Wandurt,and Rolo. Those are my big ones, but I also love Kurrty, Kurmanda (I like any Kurt pairing...the main ones anyway), Loven (LoganMystique), Anlocke,Bobbilee, Bage (BeastSage),Lucassa/Bisage (Me trying to come up with a slash forBishop and Sage...not pretty,I know)JeanLogan/Jogan? in the comics only, and Jott (I wouldn't consider Jott, a shippy of mine, but I do support them). My lesser pairings, or the New Recruit pairings include: Rayne (RayRahne), Rahm, Sabby (SamTabby), Tabbay(TabbyRay), Amarerto(AmaraRoberto) and Jamie and Rahne (Jahme?). The ones I am luke warm on is Amyro and BobbyAmara (Icemagma?/Bobara?/Amabob?).
And that is what I ship. The rest of the pairings in the X-Men universe are those I am unsure of or hate with the fiery burning passion of a million billion scorching hot suns!
Some of my favorite bands include: Sum41, Our Lady Peace, Velvet Revolver, Jet, No Doubt, Muse, Tokyo Dragons, Billy Talent, Guns N' Roses, Alice in Chains, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Stone Temple Pilots and Evanescence. Some I like more than others though. Some have moved on to my Okay bands list, too. I absolutely adore Slash! He is my favorite musician. Ever.
The Lord of the Rings, The Bourne Ultimatum, Ocean's 11, 12 and 13, Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men (both), The Lion King, The Princess Bride and others that I can't think of right now.
