5. Do you think we would be friends in real life?
6. How often do you read my journal?
7. What do we have in common?
8. Will you post this in your journal too?
9. Do I actually resemble any character from your fandoms in your eyes?



I love you CLAMP! Transgender Epic Love of Doom and Gloom )

I adore Tsubasa, I love the plot, I love the characters, and I absolutely love the art style. It is clean, sharp and the high contrast is perfect. I’m so happy, so, so, so happy. The plot is huge, and the amount of characters that I recognise, know and love is mind boggling. But oh, how I love the hints, the parallels and all those new worlds. Thousands of possibilities, pathways and all the ‘happy endings’ that can be imagined, I refuse to contemplate the angst.

(And I aced the Contract Law exam, I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting a Distinction, the question is if I can get pass the 80% mark. Now, if I can pull off 78% in next Monday’s exam I will be able to keep my current course average. Need to keep a 75% average. Back to study.)

.....DAMN you CLAMP

I thought I was over it, shows you how much I know. Seishirou and Subaru will never be over for me.

So, with the newest issue of Tsubasa and the re-appearance of AUSeishirou I have been slowly... oh who the hell am I kidding, I went SQUEEEEE, and then went completely over the bend in my Seishirou and Subaru love. Yes, I know Subaru hasn't appeared yet, but this is CLAMP, and Sei-chan is missing an eye, and since this is CLAMP who is drawing and writing Sei-chan without the eye, then it must mean that Sei-chan is engaged, and since this is Seishirou I refuse to see him engaged to anyone except for Subaru. So there.

The problem is I trust CLAMP about as far as I can throw, which isn't far. This is way too good a chance for them to drag in the angst, and I just don't see them not dragging in the sakura blossoms, the dead twin, the family names, and well, the really fucked-up, confused love between Seishirou and Subaru. I -want- them to be happy, I just don't trust CLAMP to give the chance they deserve, no matter what universe. So now I'm getting twitchy and nervous, and I almost, almost wish that Seishirou never appeared in Tsubasa, except that would be a lie because the day I found out about Tsubasa was the day I wished, beside happiness for Ashura-oh, for the re-appearance of Seishirou and Subrau. For them to appear, and just be normal people with no powers or stupd family obligations, and of course, no appearance by the damn sakura tree.

Except now Seishirou has appeared, and while he look young he does not look normal. And with an eye missing I feel slightly sick. So yeah. Going to class now.

If you had asked me a month ago I'd have swore up and down that my relationship with CLAMP was over and done with. Too much feelings of betrayal, anger and a healthy dose of bitterness was between the mangaka circle and I. Beside, producing Tsubasa is an obvious attempt at cashing in on the popularity of their once popular titles. I'd never lower myself to that level, I scoffed.

You think with past experience I'd have known better. Don't say anything.

Since then I've read XXX Holic and Tsubasa (CALMP's new series). Both are a crossover whore's (which I am) wet dream, and both have art-styles that have dramatically changed from X (HAPPINESS!! The lines are cleaner, and the style less, well, flowery). The former series actually endeavours to explain many mysteries of the CLAMP world(s), of which Mokona and the powers of Clow are revealed (well, more than the usual), and CLAMP (I can't believe they've managed) reveal that most (if not all) of their worlds are linked.

As for the latter... I don't know how to quite explain my happiness at reading Tsubasa. It's like seeing all of my dreams coming true. The second chances that were withheld, the lives that never were... the happy endings that should have been. It's ALL in Tsubasa! How can I -not- like the series?!?

I find myself re-reading Tsubasa, and giggling whenever a character from one of CLAMP's series make a cameo appearance. Sorata and Arashi married, living together, ALIVE made me happy, happy, happy. Touya as King, Yuki as -his- Mage (and friend) made me smile, but it was Ashura-Oh that made my heart skip. I love Ashura-Oh, I dare say he's my number one favourite character of CLAMP's work. To see him alive (even though asleep) made me so very happy, I was bouncing with joy. Noe, if only they decide to have Subaru and Seishirou make a cameo as a normal, happy, well adjusted couple. No magic, no missing eye, and no dead sister. The happiness.

I know, I know, it's cliche, it's obviously whoring, I should know better... but no, I have fallen in love with both series, and the little juicy bits they disclose make me a very happy fangirl.

The bitches.

CLAMP is doing an au of CCSakura. The whoring have to stop. God, please let the whoring stop. And, [ profile] pornkings, you're so right, CLAMP is like Yet, despite the fear, I can feel a sick curiousity to the series, I think it might be the whole Touya falling into Yukito's arms. I never said I wasn't shallow.

On other news, I have seen Matrix Reloaded. It was fun, it was really pretty, and I REALLY liked the Trinity and Neo moments (yes, that definitely included the sex scene ^__^). Much better than X-men 2, but not as good as the first one. I even stayed til the end of the credit to see the preview for Matrix Revolutions, and that's all I'm going to say ^_^

Otherwise, I slept thru most of Friday, and quite a large chunk of today. I spent the rest of my waking hours re-watching Meteor Garden 1, watching Meteor Garden 2 and watching bits and pieces of the live-action Taiwanese soapie, Marmalade Boy. For those who've never heard of the series, it's shoujo comic (written in the early 90's) at it's best/worst, whichever is your taste. It ran approx ~70 eps, and oh boy, did I wish I was dead for some of them. Anyways, I am beyond brain dead, and I've cried rivers. So much bawling, the angst, the drama, the pain, WAHHH. I feel sorry for Lei, so much pain, the poor schnookums.

[ profile] pornkings now you've to WRITE the Lei fic. PLEASE write the LEi fic, tell me you're writing the LEi fic. I need Lei fics, his story need to be better resolved, expanded, more depth, more something. Please write the Lei fic. I'm a firm believer that repetition of the same thing will eventually get me what I want. So, write the Lei fic.

I'm sure I had more intelligent things to say, but all I can think about is Lei and his missed chances *cries*
