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:

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... 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*

I think i did some very stupid messing out with my last entry. Should teach me to try for friend locked entry. Obviously exibitionnism is the way to go for me *snickers* well [ profile] agent420 could you check it ? I'm not sure if you got my answer to your comment there because of that mess.

Shortish fic posted at [ profile] togakushishrine in answer to Link's challenge. It's only a small version of what I wanted to write, but s'okay, I'll write SeishirouxTorhu another day >_>

Anyway, following a discussion with Lin, I have named my Muse :

Linoleum Rose: You should write "comedish" fics more often, then. X3
DameEtrangere: I'm tributary to my Muse, i follow where she goes :p
Linoleum Rose: XD Ah, I understand.
DameEtrangere: and usually my Muse is angsty
Linoleum Rose: XDD Who's your Muse?
DameEtrangere: dunno, never gave it a name
Linoleum Rose: Mmmhm, I see.
DameEtrangere: those times it's Seishirou and Subaru
DameEtrangere: maybe i should call her Seisu
Linoleum Rose: XD Yesh!
Linoleum Rose: Seisu!

So Seisu it is. I hope knowing her name will help when doing summoning incantations...

On other topic I have now very pretty Dornish earrings. They giggle like joy under the sun when i walk. I want to get pretty multi-coloured skirts to go with them. With them on I'll go and try to seduce the Red Viper. And his girlfriend. I love Dornish culture. And it's all thanks to [ profile] generalblossom because she's such a darling !

Order, order...

My bestest sweetest friend [ profile] azure_empress is getting married ! And I'm so happy for her, it totally rocks. Congratulation and best wishes May-chan ^^

The other day my friend Aurel wanted to sell of his used japanese manga to a store and I went with him so I could actually find such a nice store as one that sells used mangas and OV mangas.... alas, it seems he was misinformed, and the store didn't buy or sell japanese manga anymore. So we were on for a maratheon across Paris, under the rain, to find a shop which would be interested in all those manga to sell. Eventually, we ended up in the Opera quartier to find a japanese bookstore (next to my favourite english bookstore Brentanos in fact) which would have bought the mangas... except for like 5% of their prices. Well, I was happy to find this store in any case, and tried to find the Yami No Matsuei as yet unscanlated books among them, but was hopelessly lost what with me not speaking, or reading japanese. I'll get back with better information about those books and, like, an actually Kenji imprint of what the title look like so I can actually find it. Anyway, eventually, I went home with the 10 first X mangas because I can't resist buying mangas at only 1 euro even if I got them all already, and paid for a restaurant which should result in me getting the Please Save My Earth art book (mwhahahaha ! <-- sounds of gloating)
I actually like running under the rain. Not especially enjoy being wet, but I like rain, so I didn't mind. Sometimes I like to be faced with the kind of problems which are easy to strive against. I just suck at facing real day to day problems, so it energizes me when I can...

So it seems i finnaly actually found an RP community to get in, which is actually going to be active and fun, and where I get to play Seisgirou *bounces with excitement* No matter my experience with roleplaying games of the D&D variety (except that, eewwww, I hate D&D), I have absolutly none in the matter of roleplay of actually existing characters (it's interesting to see those two very close concepts, among two very close fandoms but one of which is massively male and the other massively female...) so I was really looking forward to try it out. Still am. Hem, it's a RP about Clamp Campus during the year 1999 and accessible by any kind of Clamp character which can be reasonnably assumed to be there. Or any kind of similar manga character which can be reasonably assumed to be there. it's there : , there's plenty of room yet, get into it ! NOW ! and that means you Xynnie-chan :) and everyone really.

Last... posted the Kakyou character discussion post at [ profile] togakushishrine two days ago, and, come on ! I know you people have something to say about him ! Pretty please ?

Oh and did I forgot ? at a new claiming community [ profile] clamp_claims, I got to be the proud owner of Fuuma's sexy glasses of doom, Subaru's star shaped brands and Yuuko's cigarette handler. Yes, I know, I'm a fetishist. Too bad I only thought about claiming Seishirou's wedding eye afterwhile, that would have rated as the most creepy romantic object of the serie... *sighs*

EDIT : oh, by the way, that honesty meme ? Won't do it. It's not that I'm not usually honnest with you people, and it's not that I don't want to fangirl all over you either, it's just that most of the time, without a specific topic, saying what I think of someone draws a biiiiig blank. Thoughts and impressions about people can be so hard to put into thoughts. You can ask specific questions, if you prefer, I'll answer, bluntly honnestly ^^

*yawns* I'm really starting to be very bad at updating my LJ.
Yesterday I was at a friend's birthday. It was very nice hearing news of hear when she invited me to it, as it's been a long time I hadn't seen her, and i really like her. She goes back to my Buffy fandom days, and she's really a sweet girl. I made a chocolate cake and went to the party. We weren't many people, but it was okay.
I must lend her Tokyo Babylon, as she's a fan of X TV ^_^

I'm still 99% to downloading totally Matantai Loki Ragnarock 17-20 *sighs* It's been three days !

On good news side, I finally got to borrow the Noir animes to someone ! Much happiness, it's been a long time I wanted to get them. Also got the Combination mangas from Isabelle. ^_^

I had that strange reaction of jealousy when finding out about newest X community creation [ profile] x_100 : that "hey, WE're doing the fanfic challenges thing already !" O_o wow... loose it Ete, [ profile] shineko's right in saying it's a very different kind of concept. No reason to get all competitive ! ^_^ It's funny, it's been so long I hadn't had that kind of strong rivalry reflexe. Makes me all nostalgic of my childhood days with my sister... if you see what I mean ;)
I'm usually not a very jealous person. Envious, yes, but seldom jealous. (jealous is more about possessivity, wanting to keep what's yours from anyone else's hands. Envy is about wanting and desiring what is others').

Oh... and posted a small snippet at [ profile] togakushishrine for the previous switching sides challenge. And the lattest challenge we made with [ profile] tamchronin has been very succesful already, yay ! (say 100 words only and everyone goes out of the woods ^_^)

I want to start out a SeixSub serie, and, as I've never wrote one before, I'd like to be able to talk about it with someone, especially characterisation, plot (which i'm very unsure about), and style. And i also really need betaing of the english typo, as it's not my first language.
It's rather light toned and not very serious but i'd like for it to not totally suck ^_^
It's called Ghost Stories, and I've finished writing draft for the two first chapters yet.

The current X wankage isn't going for the best, and now I'm all flipping out and feeling guilty for my part. I should never have link to the comm. just posted my message there. At least I might have been the only one being attacked, because now there's some awful trolling going on there.
On a more hopeful sidet, [ profile] shineko being such a sweetheart, created a new subaruxkamui community over at [ profile] _notalone. Yay for her and for a place where there will be yummy fics and good discussions about this pairing ^_^
My, isn't a good time for creating new comms ? I also just joined a just created Please Save My Heart comm, one of my old favourite manga. It's called [ profile] ps_myearth. There way too few fics about this manga.

X fandom is being a little bit wanky. Check [ profile] rabid_sxkers to know what i mean.

Amid all the chaos and mayhem, [ profile] tamchronin just created a new X community, because I was whining to her about the lack of warm, welcoming, active X fanfic community like [ profile] tsukimineshrineis for the CCS fandom. So if you're interested in a community where we will discuss the mangas and animes in a friendly atmosphere, where the mods will organize character analysis, fanfic challenge on a regular basis, and fic recs... go to [ profile] togakushishrine.
We're aware there's quite a few X communities already. But, being new to the fandom, i find them rather hard to get into. There's a feeling of weariness at the manga, I guess, oldies think everything has been done, and every comments have been made already. So it degenarates in ship wars, character bashing, and blaming Clamp for not having put any new stuff in a while.
Well, i'm new to it, so I have plenty of new things to say, I hope i'm not the only one who still finds a lot of fasinating things into X and wants to talk about. I hope this place can be it. Join it if you're interested.

PS : made a new icon here because I mpve twisted, depressing pairings, damnit ! Love's not only hugs and puppies.

Yesterday, Dragon Blooded game. Was very nice. Good ambiance and all, but we're still not finished with this one scenario. Made me want to finish my own campaign I've been STing (and not STing for a while :)

I re-made the Raining Blood wallpaper with better quality scans, full lyrics and a slightly changed composition. I'm happier of the overall result.

Don't have much more to add... I think i'll go to bed and start reading Midnight Tide.

Yeah I know I overuse this song/poem thing. But I like it. And it fits. It's from Lions of Al Rassan by Guy Gabriel Kay.

I started watching Full Metal Alchemist a few days ago. And it's very good. Love it. [ profile] habiti is gonna do character analysis for a site about FMA, isn't it great ? :)
[ profile] halcyon_libra also recommended me malantei loki ragnarock, but it's more difficult getting the file. Thought norse mythology, can't be bad. I'll tell you how it is as soon as I got the first anime.

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.

Day starts out as I fail to wake up in time for classes. Argh. Twice in a row.
Then I fail to find in the bibliotheque the text i'm supposed to read so we can start on working on the oral presentation tomorrow, and when i go back to try to find it, the bilbiotheque's computer searching system isn't working anymore.
So I went back home and worked on the fic I had started three weeks ago, and despite many interruptions I think I've finally finished it. Now I need to sleep on it and to find a beta. And to write the compagnon piece that goes with it. And the other ones I plan to write. And to wake up early tomorrow to get that #%ing text.

Oh, and the latest piece of Frost themed Photoshop fun.

More Photoshop fun. I'm not entirely happy with this one's composition but this is the best I can do.
