How do they KNOW all snowflakes are unique?  

If you do nothing else for your fandom today, go read this. It's Harry/Draco, distilled to just about its purest and most honest form (like the best vodkas) -- plus, kabeyk wrote it. Need I say more?

*

I would very much like to become an anime whore, if only I could find some decent anime. My friend lent me Neon Genesis; Evangelion, which is about forty shades of crap. A cross between Ender's Game and Power Rangers, with a neatly scheduled wankfest every episode. ("This ceiling ... is unfamiliar to me. But ... every ceiling ... is unfamiliar to me." In short, Shinji and ceilings have had a brief and tempestuous relationship wherein Shinji got drunk on various occasions, tried to chat up the ceiling and went to work the next day with it none the wiser. Well, not really, but it at least would have been minutely more interesting if that had happened.)

(Plus, what is with the random outbursts of crazy? I think the Japanese have a completely different outlook on humour than ... well, me. I find chibis wierd more than I do cute. *ducks tomatoes*)

On the other hand, I seem to have stumbled on a website with Prince of Tennis downloads. A random forum was divided between people saying, 'This anime has the massive sucketh, it is boring beyond measure, TENNIS EW EW EW" and other people going, "Ooh, it's so FUNNY and GOOD and 120 episodes of fake-looking anime tennis, God is vely good to us", so it reminds me a little of people's reactions to this book about a school for wizards ... but it was the guarantee of bishounen that sold me.

As for manga, I have an impressive collection of Chobits (x2), Gravitation (x2) and Eerie Queerie (x1). Yes, Waterstones has started to stock manga, I pause to listen to the rainbows singing -- but ALL FOUR outlets in Cork sell the EXACT SAME TITLES. What gives? Still, at least there's the scanlations sites, although I swear graphic artists are like 90% of fanficcers ie, not knowing the difference between hetsex and boisex. Or thinking there isn't a difference. Or something. Tired? Me too.

I wish I didn't have so many plotlines for Big Bang 2 ... and college is vastly draining. The prospectuses never mentioned how much of your time you spend sitting in lectures soaked through due to walking in the rain. Teleportation is the only answer.

Happy to oblige! It was good, wasn't it? xD

It was fabulous.

As always, it's great to hear what's on your mind/what's going on in your life. I miss talking to you as frequently as in the past - damn school! I promise I will post and/or e-mail you soon - and get that beta to you also. LOVE!

I know! I've started to make a habit, however, of spending a half hour before college catching up on the flist, which should hopefully ease things out on that front.

Heh, I have like three whole fans now! We wouldn't want to disappoint them! *laughs* I'm obsessed with my Big Bang fic now, so you're safe, my love. xD

That sounds like a good policy. One I should adopt. Witness how bad I am at getting back to your comment in a timely fashion.

Ooh, on your way to being a BNF, aren't you? How many fans before you are one?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 8th, 2005 01:27 am (UTC)
Ah, never mindey. It just makes your appearance the more to be appreciated!

Oh, indeedy. Only about six to nine hundred to go!
Caitcoralia13 on November 8th, 2005 11:23 pm (UTC)
Aw. :D

Yikes, that's a tall order! So, can you count your friends as fans? And can your mom count twice? Out of curiosity?

I have to count my friends as fans, or I'd have none.

And Mum counts about twenty times, although she's only read One Curse (and very little of it, at that).
Caitcoralia13 on November 9th, 2005 12:11 pm (UTC)
I like your rules!
Caitcoralia13 on November 8th, 2005 11:24 pm (UTC)
PS - Do I remember you mentioning someone's post about how to write good porn? Was that just one of my bizarre internet dreams?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 9th, 2005 02:00 am (UTC)
*sigh* No, unfortunately not, although I managed to sign myself up for smut69 ... I was hoping people would post their ideas. But it got ver' confused!
Caitcoralia13 on November 9th, 2005 12:10 pm (UTC)
That sounds incredibly shady. What was it?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 9th, 2005 12:59 pm (UTC)
Ehm ...

Listen, I'm gonna submit the Lily/James first chapter to the Sugar Quill for the craic! How do you actually do it? Do you have to write some kind of cover email? Their instructions aren't exactly clear!
Caitcoralia13 on November 9th, 2005 06:34 pm (UTC)
I tried to submit to SQ once, but it just got too complicated and weird - they make it really hard to submit, or else I was doing it wrong. Good luck if you give it a shot!

To drop a hint; about the manga, you might want to join http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=free_manga

Thanks a million for the tip! What with this, and finding out that Banana Fish is shonen-ai, I'm all sewn up!
leairanleairan on November 6th, 2005 09:35 pm (UTC)
You're welcome! Just doing my fangirly duty to spread the manga love.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 8th, 2005 01:30 am (UTC)
It's how people don't like it that confuses I. xD
leairanleairan on November 8th, 2005 11:08 pm (UTC)
Obviously they have not discovered the good crack! :D The good thing about manga is that it caters to all kinds of tastes. There are slashy mangas, het mangas, pwp types, plotty, intruging storylines... All kinds of stuff. Have fun searching (free_manga is just the tip of the iceberg) and don't be afraid to try new stuff. You'll definitely broaden your horizons.

Exactly! Although my tastes run almost exclusively to romance and shonen-ai in particular, I mean, you could go for Battle Royale, or Evangelion or ANYTHING. Silly peeps.

Once I figure out how to use torrents, the world shall indeed be my mollusc of choice. ;D

OOOOHHHH! Who's the Draco in your icon?
leairanleairan on November 10th, 2005 03:26 am (UTC)
The lead singer of this band called The Calling, Alex Band. He's such a hunk :D http://www.mtv.com/bands/az/calling/artist.jhtml

They broke up, didn't they? 'Wherever you will go' is a nice song, though. xD Good call on Adrian Brody as Harry, too!
leairanleairan on November 10th, 2005 03:32 am (UTC)
Oh! And speaking of Draco look alikes... go look at http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=thoseboys :D

Oh, God, yes. I was starting to wonder if I was the only one realising this. As nice as it is to see Easons and Waterstone's stocking manga... I bought all of those early titles over two years ago and am sort of... well ahead by now.

Oh, and hi. *waves* I stumbled across your journal due to many people reccing your fic and, well yes. Fellow HP fan hailing from Cork, pleased to meet you. *g*

And now I'm going to run before I die from embarrassment, I think. :)
