salinea: Balder is unhappy (*D:*)
Man trying to gather up some old Seishirou/Subarub & other TB/X fanfics rec for [profile] runespoor7 is so depressing. So many sites and journals have been taken down. Even the stuff I rounded up on delicious (which is typically stuff from 2007 only) has half of it MIA. :(

I hate it when people delete their own fanfics. I really, really do.

1. Failed to go to epitanime this week end after all. Woke up too late I guess. x_x Only now am I suddenly regretting it a little bit. Oh well, not like I had any money to spend.

2. Watched Thor on friday (finally was showing on 2D at my nearby theater). Liked it overall. You know, there's still no Thor-related recs on my list of comics to be read. Just saying :3

3. Posted the ficlets in answer to everyone who prompted:

Title: Taunting
Fandom: Tokyo Babylon / X
Characters/Pairings: Seishirou/Subaru, Fuuma
Length: 328 words

Title: Rebel girl
Fandom: Revolutionary Girl Utena
Characters/Pairings: Juri
Length: 370 words

Title: Learn from the feet of the master
Fandom: Black Lagoon
Characters/Pairings: Balalaika/Revy
Length: 496 words

They're not great, but they're wri~ting, first since 2008, yay! Wouldn't mind getting more prompts, really :3

4. [profile] comicstore_news is missing an editor in case you have too much free time and feels like doing something selfless for fandom (it's good for finding good fanart on tumblr, if i say so).

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!)

So I rambled some of those TB/X analyses things over at [ profile] megganbmoore's and I guess I might as well post it there too - it's about the mirror motif.

So... errr I made a Seishirou/Subaru FST. (on megaupload, also available on sendspace).

I'm not sure why I did because I'm not very good with music knowledge, and it makes me even more embarrassed to post than I ever was at a fic, but hey! now that I've gone through all that trouble, I better post it.

Anyway, it's the first time I posted something through megaupload so tell me if something doesn't work right.

One of the funny thing with HP7 release date's annuncement is how everyone is making angsty posts at their journal telling about their fear about the death of a favourite character (Snape, Remus, Lucius, Draco, Harry, what have you...)

musings cut for teh spoilerz )

So what do I fear for Book7? Mostly I fear silly characterization about my favourite characters that won't be easily fixed. Specific canon facts that will contradict future fics I won't have time to finish before June. And Severus/Lily *shudders*

Then again, last time the only thing I was fearing was JKR messing up with my idea of Regulus and then she did, but I loved it XD

I just hope I won't be disapointed.

But she can kill anyone she wants as far as I'm concerned.

Especially if the death is cool

*waves Bring on the Angst flag*

Well, all my plans for this week end were eventually cancelled in bac synchronisation, but no big deal, i could just read all those nifty new books.
Finished Thomas the Rhymer by Kushner, which, without surprise, was a gorgeous and wonderful book. Have to lend it to Aurel, I'm sure he'll find it inspiring for mastering more DA: Fae ;)
Also begun The Wildling... and i like the beginning, but will tell more when I finish it.

Did I mention Aurel gave me the Tokyo Babylon Photographs Art Book ? 'cause he did ! Isn't it grand ? All those nice, shiny, gorgeous pictures are all mine, mine, mine *danses* and they're even prettier in real than on scans.
From what he told me Aurel was into Clamp things when he was 15 and was still looking for his sexuality *lol* cue jokes about who would actually find their sexuality in Clamp works, cuz God knows Clamp characters have a very weird notion of love and relationships ;) Apparently now, he flees them Clamp works because he's scared of the pointy chins. Well, whatever, thanks to it, I'm now the owner of the Art Book in exchange for paying a restaurant meal, i'm rather happy of the deal.

On other news, my dad is trying to install a wifi conneciton between my computer and our modem so we won't have a cable hanging around the hall anymore. Sadly, my father is doing a messy job of it, and it's not working very well. And many blue screens have visited us. And I'm worried my computer is getting into a sulky mood. Where's Satsuki when you need her ?! So, my presence on the web is getting random, am afraid.

So I was in Paris because I was supposed to work, but of course I went shopping (I worked too, just couldn't resist the appeal) I saw the third TPB of Fables and i bought. It's great. I have no self control. And then I found all of the Gunnm (Battle Angel Alita for you Americans who only know of that weird translation) big volumes in bargain sales. I always wanted to have the Gunnm big volumes books. As a manga, Gunnm was my first love. Besides it's got one of the best villain ever (ex equo with Littlefinger) in Desty Nova. No evil mad doctor is as good as him. So, now I'm broke and happy ^_^

Since my internet connection wasn't working for a while, I was bored and made this

between you and your partner in your
relationship. You are very difficult to get.
You have big requirements and this one you love
must try hard to get you. But after she/he melt
your heart she/he will be the most happy person
in the world. You need someone who shoes you
that you are special and it makes you feel
good to see that you are loved. She/He shall
know that you could easily get another
girl/boyfriend but you wont as long as you
love him. when she/he hurts you you will hurt
him too, but in general you dont get hurt. If
your partner cheated you ,you would react cold
and immediately (try to) forget him
PLEASE VOTE, I want to know what you think about my
quiz, I worked hard on it.You can always
message me or tell me how I can improve that
quiz. Ill sure write back.

I'm starting to make even more X/TB icons than I can use. What can I say, I'm bored...
And now, after Calderon and Issa, I'm quoting the Poetic Edda. I'm really a geek ^_^


the hanged man

I do blame it on my fascination and identification with the twelveth card of the tarot. I do.
It's usually the card I associate with freedom, which is paradoxical, because it's the card of freedom from within, by opposition with the fifteenth card, which is outer freedom (ability to do whatever you want and no give a damn of consequences) but slavery to your own pulsion. The Hanged Man is the sacrified god, it's a very strange arcane... it's the card of the medium, the intermediary, caught between heavens and earth, it's the card of reversal, paradoxes. How can you be trapped and yet free, bound and yet powerful, helpless and yet serene ? It's something about the inner dignity of man. About that fundamental part of yourself that noone can touch unless you let them. And at the same time, it's a card of sacrifice, selflessness, abnegation... but it's not so much about giving in to others as it is about giving to yourself. Myself to myself, that's the key. A perfect balance of self, neither passivity nor action, neither acceptance nor refusal, something between, freedom as a state of being by giving all of yourself, accepting all of yourself. And then what binds the hanged man isn't a chain anymore, because ties bind both way, and it is being linked to the Axis Mundi, therefore to the whole world. And there's power here, power rooted in what binds people together.

I've made a new icon, but i don't have any more room on LJ... should I replace one of my current icon ?

can you tell i love inuendos ? ^_^

anyway, my throat is sore, i got a cold, so i wonder wether to go or not to the Mercredi de la SF.

Happily, one of the research paper i had to do for tomorrow has been rescheduled for the next thursday. But I still got lots of work to do for tomorrow, and an oral presentation about Marx.

[ profile] rahael made a very beautiful post on her live journal, check it out. It made me think of Tokyo Babylon, in a way, maybe only because it's my current obsession ^_^ but the point about communication, the difficulty to express how you feel, and wanting to be ordinary... that's definitly within the themes of TB.

I always wonder if in Call B of TB, Seishirou meant what he told those girls about 'ordinary people'. He had no real reason to lie, like with many other instance when he sprout wise words for the sake of Subaru's ears, he wasn't holding the facades at that point.
So... does Seishirou, magical assassin, really thinks that the more admirable people are those who lead a common life, those who live throught reality facing all the joys and pains, worries and suffering of reality the best they can ?
Isn't it interresting ?
