What do you think of the Subaru/Kamui ship?
Much as I'm a die hard Seishirou/Subaru shipper, I'm actually rather fond of Subaru/Kamui, when it's well characterised. (Multishipping FTW). I even wrote a K/S fic once :) and enjoyed a great many well written ones (back in the days when I read a lot of fic for the X fandom). There were some fics I liked a great deal less, but that's because I don't think it's a pairing you can write well by dismissing Seishriou and Fuuma (and Kotori)'s importance to Subaru and Kamui. These people will always be more important to them than each others. But they do have a sweet and very interesting relationship in canon, and there's a great deal of interesting things you can do with that.
To be honest, back in the days, it's one of the rare pairing war I got involved in the slightest bit, and I regret that fact. I hadn't realised at the time the kind of self righteous patronising that went with it :-(

What is your opinion on Chobits?
I read it quite a few years ago and was very much uninmpressed. To this day probably my least favourite CLAMP. I love the fetishist clothing that Freya's got and there were two minor characters whose name and roles I forgot which I was fond of. Otherwise I disliked it a great deal. It was a bit of a creepy manga.

If you've read Tsubasa, what are you expecting out Subaru and Seishirou?
Every little bits make me happy, but I would dearly hope for some sort of conclusion of the hints we were given so far (that seems unlikely at this point, but still :() At the same time, I don't really care that much. To me, the real Subaru and Seishirou, the ones I care about, are in X and Tokyo Babylon.

Why Sansa/Sandor? Hey, that doesn't mean you have to rationalize it, but if you thought of something, well...
It's a kink? Hell, I don't know, I love Sansa and I love Sandor, and I love their interraction, it's got chemistry. It's the classic Beauty & the Beast pairing, innocent girl with tough guy. It's very, very archetypal and it's been done many, many times badly, but GRRM actually knows how to do these things without being problematic, by being more realistic and more aware of the potential squickiness; so it's refreshing.
I always love that kind of pairing when it's well done, really ^_^

I don't take Tsubasa seriously. I see it as crackful intercontinuity multicrossover clamp fanfic, ya know? And I like it because I'm a CLAMP fangirl, and I get the references and it's always nice to see the characters I loved in another manga being explored in another way. I also love Kurogane and Fye, and I love their slahsy relationship. Also I adore Yuuko. (And I love XXXHolic much more than I do TRC)
I admit I don't like Syaoran and Sakura much, or care about their own drama. Especially Syaoran, because I really adore CCS!Syaoran, but not so much in TRC; while I find that Sakura still manages to bring out some good stuff in TRC (when she's not in a coma) and I wasn't that crazy about her in CCS.
Another way I like TRC is the "So, that's how Sidereals fight using fate magic", but only Exalted players will get that ^_^ (my head, it is hurting!)

Hugo Awards )

And one more for Bujold. That's what, her sixth ? *is amused* Well, Paladins of Souls isn't her worst novel, and was very interesting on some aspect (original female character for one) and compared with Harry Potter, my, it's a very worthy books :p (could never forgive Harry Potter for snatching GRRM's well deserved Hugo award for A storm of sword which JK Rowling never even went to recieve)

And a happy (belated) birthday to [ profile] arethusa2

Only two exams left tomorrow.

*Pokes* Firefly fans out there ? There's fic you should read. It's not a firefly fic, it's a Card Captor Sakura fic in the firefly universe. Sort of.
Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but it's very very good, with an excellent plot and very well written. I think anyone who appreciated Firefly would enjoy reading this, 'specially if you liked River. And since it's totally A/U and using Firefly, I don't even think you need to know Sakura to appreciate it. Otherwise, sorry it's a WIP :


Otherwise, I'm off to see Wonderful Days. ^_^

EDIT: Well, it was a pretty good movie. Wonderful Days is a Korean anime, in case you wonder. Nice ecologist / post apocalyptic story. Not exactly the most original scenario, but well done as it is, with just enough ambiguity. The graphism was very nice, with lots of wonderful ideas. I especially liked the action scenes which were framed in a very interesting ways. Some plans were pure poetry, and the gorgeous music did help (thought sometimes it was a little bit overdone, especially toward the end). Main complain : the 2D and the 3D animation mixed very badly. The movie was very slow paced, with some weird elipses, which I tend to like, but isn't to the taste of everyone;

Happy birthday [ profile] graymm ! Much joy and happiness to you ! May you have a wonderful time being 20.

I eventually succombed and had fun with this.
Here's the result :

Not that similar to me... mostly because this icon maker doesn't have near enough curly hairs thingie. And because i couldn't resist making myself cuter than I am ^_^

Yesterday I downloaded an awful lot of XXXholic and Tsubasa scanlations which made me go to sleep very very late. I love, love XXXholic. I also downloaded Card Captor Sakura. Figured that if I kept reading so many Touya/Yuki/Yue fics, I better re-read the whole thing. I mean, it's been YEARS when I did last time.
I'm very curious about Tsubasa, I love the whole multiple universes thing, and the meta crossover potential.
By the way, found gorgeous fanart pictures of Yue here., and here and here.

Lastly [ profile] fresne posted a lovely Delirium / Smallville fic that made me happy ^_^
