Don't mind me, I just want to rec this AMV everywhere ever. It's a KHR AMV, a tribute to the Future Arc - look, I know everyone rejoiced when that arc was finally over but this AMV is still amazingly good. So watch it.
clonechild: reborn (::follow you till the end of the earth::)
YESSSS FINALLY

Gokudera got his character development and he won the fight! I - I'm so proud. Still no C.A.I. but in return he defeated Shitt P. with the specialest weapon of all. And awww, they're such bestest girlfriends. Their whole fight was filled with ~*special things*~ and ~*fabulous*~ but the end was so cute, so cute!

And then, BAM!Enma. CRY MOAR, ENMA. I'LL START CARING ABOUT YOU WHEN YOU STOP BEING STUPID AND A JERK.

'BAWWW YOU ARE IMPRISONING MY BELOVED FAMILY MEMBERS, SAWADA!!!! I'LL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THIS!!!!!'/rage

WELL YOU CHALLENGED THEM, FUCKER, SO NOW YOU CAN GO SUCK ON THE CONSEQUENSES.


seriously. the more i see of the Shimon the more i dislike them, with the exception of the girls, who are the only ones with more than half a brain.

KHR again

...I think that one of the reasons Yamamoto bores me so badly is that, for me, his battles are so boring to watch and I generally think his opponents are more interesting than he is (e.g. Squalo and with the giant glaring exception of Genkishi, that pompous bastard).

blah blah KHR battles )

That said, I think KHR battles in general aren't very engagingly written (I constantly wonder why no one gets shot in the back while posturing or expositioning). In that case I like YuYu Hakusho better, simply because there's a lot of posturing and expositioning then too, but at least everyone has oodles of fun blowing each other up and it might be a life-or-death situation but you wouldn't know it from looking at them. They take everything much less seriously.

One of these days I really should start reading HunterxHunter
clonechild: reborn (::because he's a prince::)
"Our old man had a habit of throwing things and our mother was always screaming in our ears."

OMG MAMMON NEVER CHANGE.

WHY ARE THE VARIA ALWAYS THE GREATEST? i love it i love it okay. their cameos are always hilarious.

ALSO the Arcobaleno Trials have thrown me straight back into happily shipping both Lal/Colonnello and Mammon/Belphegor.





wat. don't look at me like that. *slinks away*


Although I sort of hate that Colonnello is constantly trying to get Lal to be ~more ladylike~ fuck you colonnello. I take great pleasure in the fact that whenever they spar Lal beats him soundly. Probably he just wants to just win for once.

ALSO apparently the new motto is that X-BURNER AIR SOLVES EVERYTHING.

more khr

clonechild: reborn (::because he's a prince::)
Haha so I'm watching the final confrontation with Byakuran and I can't stop laughing someone help me take this seriously since oh my god this is priceless entertainment. I-it's just, every time someone holds a motivational speech or there is a touching ~FRIENDSHIP MOMENT~ and you go all 'aww, how endearing! how beautifully shounen!'

and then the scene cuts to Byakuran who goes OMG LOL and he's such a troll I just start laughing

'W-wait, wait!'
'Don't wanna~'
BOOM

and it's all so *tragic* and Uni's gonna *sacrifice herself* but Byakuran just so clearly has the time of his life winning the gold medal for best trolling ever

and it's the FINAL FIGHT

and I can't stop laughing



amano might have serious troubles with writing character development or engaging fights and she has serious issues with making female characters but this series is so hilarious. because now we have byakuran hamming it up and before that there was ryohei punching dinosaurs and in between we got mukuro repeatedly stabbing fran in the head.

sometimes this is the best series ever


PS: lol primos in da house. ...and it's true what they say, giotto and g really are making bedroom words at each other.

PPS: and suddenly: BAM! Uni. wow moodwhiplash ;_;

Byakuran: UNI-CHAAAN WHAT DID YOU DO WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE YOU RUINED MY PLANS :(
Tsuna: NO U.
clonechild: reborn (::if it pleases you i will pose for you)
First: fuuuck i have only just entered this fandom and already my rec list is longer than those for several other fandoms put together.

Second: I am disappoint, KHR fandom. Why is there not more Giotto/G fic? WHY. Giotto calls him 'beloved'! possibly that's just a wrong translation but boo who cares. G gets extra large panels when interacting with him, compared to the other Guardians! It's basically 2759 only ten generations ago come on AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SHIPS IT LIKE BURNING?

Also, Shitt P. and Gokudera becoming the KHR version of Lady Gaga. Shitt P. already looks the part, Gokudera can write the music! ...a-as long as he doesn't try to sing.
also what the hell kind of name is Shitt P. Shitt P. haha is that a crappy (orz) name or what.
clonechild: circus clowns adopting your story (::at least then they might get some use:)
I find myself in this weird place in the KHR fandom where I read mostly Yamamoto/Gokudera fics, even if they occupy a very high spot on the list of SHIPS I DON'T SHIP AT ALL. There are pairings I despise more, like Xanxus/Tsuna, but, god, Yamamoto/Gokudera is just something I cannot see working. At all. One of these days I might possibly even make a more detailed post about that.

I guess I can read it as long as I don't think too hard about how it might fit into canon. Or possibly I don't ship it because of the two of them I like Gokudera better, while Yamamoto bores me almost to tears; honestly, the only thing I find really interesting about him is his interaction with Squalo and that's mostly because I like Squalo as a character, while Yamamoto is just... cheap. Really, really cheap. I mean, the 'flawless and invincible' sword style? YAWN.

On the other hand, Gokudera hits several of my buttons and I realized yesterday that he's basically Infinite Undiscovery's Edward, only slightly more unstable and with dynamite instead of greatswords.

Also also: Belphegor's second character song. I am sort of unreasonably in love.


Am tidying up the 'ultimate weapons' sidequests in Magna Carta 2; all the backtracking is getting a bit boring, especially when you have to go to Oldfox Canyon and only later realize you have taken the wrong entrance and need to be in the other area.

Juto and Argo have been gathering dust in the backlines ever since I got all six party members: I only used them when the Doomseeds were falling in Belfort, and take Argo out whenever I need to Armour Break a boss. I guess I just love my mages better? My standard battle starts off with Rue gathering enough kan for one of her specials, and then chaining to Crocell for Seraphic Raze. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's really rather effective, as long as I don't forget to use Armour Break.

I still love my whole party, even if I can't help snickering over Juto's flowery voice-over commentary. I mean, seriously, 'violently trembling heart'? Pffft.

Also, apparently all of Crocell's family's servants are snobs. I get that only Zephie can activate the test portals since they only test people of royal blood, and Malaccia is Rue's creepy stalker, but the people in Crocell's sidequests refuse to talk to your other party members simply because they are not Reeden family. ...Actually, that's pretty interesting, especially considering Crocell himself says that they were only lower nobility. Possibly it has to do with the nature of the sidequests themselves?


Edit: OKAY OKAY THE BEST WAY TO FORGET BAD DAYS IS APPARENTLY TO READ HILARIOUSLY BAD SMUT. PPPFFFT IT DESERVES CAPSLOCK. SERIOUSLY, IT'S LIKE A DICTIONARY GOT SICK ON PURPLE PROSE AND VOMITED IT UP SERVED WITH BAD GRAMMAR AND WORSE TAUTOLOGIES. AHAHAHA I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING.
clonechild: reborn (::if it pleases you i will pose for you)
Some half-serious thoughts about Katekyo Hitman Reborn:

I am really very annoyed with the girls getting cockblocked every time they should get into a fight and kick ass. Instead, Chrome gets molested by tentacles a bunch of times and Bianchi should be off poisoning people instead of gasping on the sidelines.

For that matter, why is Chrome the only one to get molested by tentacles? Oh, wait! Gokudera too, during that brief fight with Mammon, if I remember correctly.

Gokudera being the only one of the guys to get molested by tentacles might, depressingly, be related to him being drawn progressively more and more feminine, and also him losing pretty much every single one of his fights. While I appreciate that Gokudera's fights are used for character development, I don't think it's a really good idea to make him lose all his fights when he already has so much self-worth and insecurity issues. Therapy might be better. Or maybe it's the RPG method of battle power, where the ranged fighters are always weaker than the melee fighters, and also almost always girls.

On the other hand, I appreciate how Ryohei and Lussuria are the team medics, and also the only hand-to-hand fighters and how in Lussuria's case I can make 'healing cock' jokes that fit into canon perfectly.

Edit: Okay so apparently Yamamoto got molested by Mammon too, I forgot. There goes that theory.
Now to see if I can find fic where Mammon uses his tentacle illusions on Belphegor instead...

And now for something different: fanart recs!
Tales of Vesperia, Tales of Graces (only 2), Reborn! )
clonechild: hugs plz (::cheeky little sky pirate otp::)
Fandom: Betrayal Knows My Name
Characters: Shusei, with lots of mentions of Hotsuma and some of Yoshino
Hinted at Shusei/Hotsuma.
Vague spoilers for volume 4.
word count: ~700

Shusei has a hard time recalling things that don’t interest him, and the list of things he does like is really rather small. )

Also, I've been sort of reading Katekyo Hitman Reborn on and off for the past two weeks or so. I can't in good conscience really recommend it (pretty much all the girls are sidelined and getting their thunder stolen and all that jazz) but the loyalty pings. Oh my god the loyalty pings. The potential for D/s (also as a pairing shorthand and I'm so disappointed nobody's done anything with that, fandom!), master/subordinate, blood-, knife- and gunplay and service-oriented submission oh my god. Also Dino's and Hibari's weapons, ahaha.

God. I want to write porn for this series so badly. Fuck my failure.

Also, my favourites are definitely Gokudera, Squalo and Belphegor. I love them, love them. The buttons they press. unf.
