I'm not a sadist, I just enjoy watching pretty boys bitch-slapped.

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Someone on the house_chase community is uploading H/C (hurt/comfort... no, of course it's House/Chase, what d'you think the community's for?) moments, and I saw the priceless moment in Season 1, Episode 15: Mob Rules where Chase gets bitch-slapped by the lawyer brother of a gay gangster patient. WAY to hit all the "Make aefallen Pay Attention" buttons all at once and in such a way as to give me whiplash from racing to see it happen.

I like to call it Chase's Wolfram Moment.

in which slapping makes the world go 'round

Why Life is Such a Bitch to Chase
(no, not because Chase is a bitch)

1. It's tough enough being a doctor without being bitchslapped by your patient's relatives.



2. And having to tend to the guy who's the reason for your being slapped in the first place.


In this scene, he says, "YOU CAN TRUST ME."
House obviously disagrees.

The TRUST ME! Wombat dance.
(when I was young, the words "Trust me" were my favourite words to hear in cartoon series. :D)

4. Your boss wants to fire someone and at the moment it looks like it's gonna be YOU.
(Also, that is the girliest post ever, Chase)

The Difference Between Reality and That Other Sparkly Pretty Thing

The Pretty Thing:


After seeing the word "Hoyay" (means "homoeroticism, yay!") around way too many sites and not at all understanding what it means, I finally found this site, which made me laugh hysterically (clearly I am easily amused) when I read, "In another episode, House declares "I love you!" when Wilson gives him more Vicodin, causing squee in millions of ho yay fans." Causing squee? Causing squee? Oh guys you crack me up! Their six-line Heroes summary had me laughing even harder.

But the one that had me laughing the hardest (probably due to the cumulative effect of all the other lines) was, "Brothers Sam and Dean Winchester of Supernatural are breathlessly subtextualized by Television Without Pity recappers, and copious notes are taken on all possible examples of "Bro Yay.""

This post has been brought to you by a very long day! ♥

I have discovered that if I really like a series, I tend to make a With Stupid icon out of it. This is probably because when I was young and impressionable, lacewood showed me a Hector -> Paris "I'm With Stupid" icon. And THAT WAS IT:


Hugh Laurie in Blackadder - as the Prince Regent, in Blackadder. I watched Blackadder long before House was a twinkle in Master Laurie's eye, and the Prince Regent always made me want to A) laugh hysterically, B) strangle him, C) wonder long and hard about how anyone could be that stupid, even on television. I really don't associate this character with House at all, but with Hugh Laurie.

And oh, was the Prince Regent fabulously gay, in every sense of the word.

Prince Regent (to Blackadder): "What can I do with a woman that I cannot do with you?"
Blackadder: "I cannot conceive."

I missed your layout! *sparkles!* In celebration of its return:


I'm blissfully ignoring all your House/Chase or anything House-related today because I watched Euphoria, Part 1 yesterday and it broke my brain. I wanted Foreman to die. I wanted Chase to do it. HANG HIM WITH THAT TIE CHASE. GO ON. T.T

Sorry to hear you've had a long day! =/ *pats!* GO TO BED!
2nd-Nov-2007 02:42 pm (UTC) - BRAINHURTS
NO HELLO KITTY!*CRIES* I already saw one in the Build-A-Bear workshop today!

XD! I missed my layout, too. The other one was a little hard on the eyes (or maybe I was staring too long!). This one is much easier!

Good ♥ I just stuffed a bunch of House and Chase caps into the entry. :D

*LAUGHING SO HARD* I actually can't sit through the rest of the episode minus the Chase bits because it makes me go so D:. I AM ONLY IN IT FOR THE PRETTY AND THE SLASH. The infuriating moments are to be KICKED.

Seriously! House is good for giving you high blood pressure. Both the series and the person!
2nd-Nov-2007 03:02 pm (UTC) - so does mine. T.T
xDD I keep thinking your Build-A-Bear Workshop should be selling the tan Hello Kitty, but unfortunately it's exclusive to Hawaii. *sob!*

... I came across this picture when Googling for it, though:


I think the Abyss layout takes a little getting used to? xD I didn't like it very much at first (sorry!) but it grew on me after a few days. *g!*

I SAW. I LOVE THEM. Oh, poor Chase... Why is he called wombat, though? O.o

... WAIT. Are you saying ALL THE EPISODES are infuriating? xD I thought the God vs. House one was pretty enjoyable, it's just the Euphoria episode that traumatized me. AND IT WILL BE CONTINUED ARGH. ;)

I totally agree with that last bit. *laughs!* OH OH! CAN I STEAL THE HOUSE IS WITH STUPID ICON? I liiiike.
2nd-Nov-2007 03:08 pm (UTC) - MY EYES MY EYES BURN
STRIPPER!BAB! :(((((((((((((


I mean, there are two ways one could look at it! Either the bear is stripping, or the bear is... very happy that it has been skinned.

... what kind of bear is that?! Is it the "Scare-Young Children Bear"?

... but it kind of looks furry and nice underneath, though. Just... just a little disturbing.
2nd-Nov-2007 03:17 pm (UTC) - it's a birthday suit bear! xD
... It's not a Build-A-Bear bear! xDD THANK GOD!

WAHAH. The link says "birthdaysuitbear.jpg" I think? SO WRONG.

I'm sorry for posting something so disturbing on your beautiful winter layout. HAHA. ;)
2nd-Nov-2007 03:21 pm (UTC) - you are MEEEEEN and make baby wombats cry!
Baby wombat now scarred for life!


2nd-Nov-2007 03:30 pm (UTC) - we're a team~!
LOL! You're totally using this as an excuse to show off your icons. ADMIT IT.
2nd-Nov-2007 03:38 pm (UTC)
Who, me? I am SO INNOCENT!

(that, coincidentally, is the essence of THIS icon's keywords!)
3rd-Nov-2007 01:23 am (UTC)
Wieeh! My very first House icon! xD

I guess it's a bit weird for ME to be giving YOU icon recs, but I stumbled across this one tonight: iconnaissances! She has a handy House Icon Filter, too!

I really liked her icons... She's also into Heroes and Avatar. :) Don't skip back more than three times, though. I think she's only recently gotten better. xD
2nd-Nov-2007 03:21 pm (UTC) - I HAVE A NEW NAME FOR IT

Look, even Chase is shocked!
2nd-Nov-2007 03:29 pm (UTC) - SILLY WOMBAT HAHA!
Hee. xDD

Chase is so cute.

URGH. You've brainwashed me. HOW CAN I LIKE HOUSE. NOOOOOOOOO. T.T
2nd-Nov-2007 03:41 pm (UTC)
Chase is spectacularly cute. Then again, maybe he's only cute when next to not!blonde!Cameron, and Foreman, and House himself. HE COULD BE A POP STAR.

XDDDD! I haven't really brainwashed you, I think - thinking Chase is cute is NATURAL! Most people who like pretty boys would agree!

Now, if I get you thinking HOUSE is cute, that's brainwashing! (and it would surprise me - I personally could never think House was cute. I think Hugh Laurie is cute, but that's a whole different thing).
2nd-Nov-2007 03:44 pm (UTC) - HAVE FUN WITH THIS:
Hugh Laurie in Blackadder - it's Hugh Laurie as the Prince Regent, in Rowan Atkinson (Mr Bean's) Blackadder. I think it just might break your brain: this is Hugh Laurie (House's actor) when he was younger, powdered and in a wig as the fabulously GAY Prince Regent. :D
2nd-Nov-2007 05:15 pm (UTC) - ...
I'm abusing this poor icon today, but: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Jana is actually a VERY BIG fan of Rowan Atkinson, but I still can't stand his face. HUGH LAURIE ACTUALLY MAKES IT A LITTLE BEARABLE. O.o
2nd-Nov-2007 03:12 pm (UTC)
XD! Sure! You may take the HOUSE IS WITH STUPID icon! I am amazed that you like it, though! (You sometimes surprise me with which of my icons you like: like the rainbow!Jimmy one and this one! I am over here going "but they are NOT PRETTY ENOUGH")

xD! I know you didn't like the Abyss one at first! I really loved it, because it was so special, omg. ♥ But I also wanted to use it for the Halloween post because my Halloween post DOES NOT FIT this layout, and the other layout worked better with it! :D

XD! HEH HEH HEH. I am glad you enjoyed the caps! Despite your wanting to avoid House. :D And House and Chase. House isn't pretty, but they make for a nice visual (and mental!) contrast! :D

Oh oh! Chase is called Wombat because he is Australian and from Australia (XD yes i like repeating myself), and House makes fun of him by calling him by the names of all the native Australian animals. House has called him Wombat (my favourite PET (xD) name for him) and also "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo".

... the tan Hello Kitty... I like the flowers, but I can't shake the feeling that it looks like kitty's been TOASTED. :D

2nd-Nov-2007 03:28 pm (UTC)
Hee! xD I like the WITH STUPID icon because it's funny... I don't really have a pairing yet (I think I'll be House/Chase one-sided and House/Wilson because Wilson keeps BITCHING ABOUT WILSON SLEEPING WITH THAT WOMAN!), so I want an icon that isn't romantic but FUNNEEH. *grin!*

I THINK THEY ARE PRETTY ENOUGH, THOUGH. I really like that rainbow!Jimmy one. It's my HAPPY ICON. xD

The Abyss layout was really beautiful and well made! I just didn't like all those dark colours... I think that's why I love your current one so much now. It's so sparkly and light. :D :D :D

I don't want to avoid House, per se... It's just that ONCE A WEEK ON THURSDAYS IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. I'm not immune yet. I will work on it. ;) It's like training your brain for the breakage KKM does to it!

Awwww! MAAAN. Now I want to make a KOALA BEAR and name it Chase! O.o That's really cute! I didn't notice the Australian accent at all. Whoops.


I have to go see my doctor! T.T He doesn't sit until 5pm, but last time we were in the waiting room for TWO HOURS so we're going a bit early. Thanks for talking and cheering me up so much. I nearly forgot I am sick. :)
2nd-Nov-2007 04:35 pm (UTC) - *HUGS*
Sweets, if you were that sick, you didn't need to be online! *hugs* Man, I hate long waiting times, too, so I totally feel your pain. *snug* You're most welcome, sweets, glad I could help. ♥ FEEL BETTER SOOON, you! I don't know if this visit will helps, but IT BETTER DO!

XD! I'm more into the EXTREME dark colours than you - and this present layout is just so SPECTACULARLY JIMMY, the only way you could love it more if it were PINK.

Thank you! ♥ And man, House/Chase is totally one-sided. So's House/Cameron, really. I think House should just end up in a threesome with Cuddy and Wilson. He needs them both, to make him stable. Or maybe just throw Chase and Cameron into the mix, too, then he can have House's Harem. :D

XD! As I like House/Chase... I can't actually have a REAL romantic icon, but I MAKE DO. :))) AND House loves Chase, really - he loves ABUSING him. Poor boy.

XD! Once a week on Thursdays would be MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME if I actually had to sit through the whole episode without knowing how much Chase was in it. :) Chase is the sugar, the rest of the the episode is the MEDICINE.

XDDDD!!! I NEVER HAD TO BE TRAINED FOR THE KKM-BRAIN BREAKAGE! Wolfram was always around and pretty enough for me to ♥ ♥ ♥ KKM WAS CHILD'S PLAY BRAIN-BREAKAGE COMPARED TO HOUSE, which is both brain-and-heart breaking.

Actually, I don't really hear Chase's accent as an Australian accent. I see it as a British accent crossed over with an Australian one. It's not like any Australian accent that I'm familiar with, because it sounds so forced. Or maybe it was just that he's trying very hard to be non-Australian. He sounds so stiff and formal, poor boy. He should be all YO 'SUP! and all that good stuff.

I'm not so good with accents, though, so maybe I should take it to someone who knows accents! ;)


AHAHAHAHAHA!!! I might name my Cheetah Chase. IT WOULD MAKE SENSE, NO? ;)
3rd-Nov-2007 01:16 am (UTC) - *tackles!*
Heh, I sound like a seal (honestly! OINK OINK!) if I try to speak... so I've been spending most of my time online where I can still COMMUNICATE NORMALLY. ;)

...the only way you could love it more if it were PINK.


You know, that makes me wonder... is there any Chase/Wilson? O.o I mean, House is such a bastard. He doesn't deserve either of them. *laughs!*

I'm a little disappointed, though. I think I went into House thinking I'd like House/Chase and then discovered THERE IS NO HOUSE/CHASE AT ALL. It's all in fandom's head. ;)

I don't mind the other characters that much! xD I think I never would have noticed Chase if I didn't know you? I like listening to House talk because it's such a challenge for me to keep up with him. SERIOUSLY. He talks so quickly that I can't read the subtitles quickly enough, so I have to actually LISTEN to what they're saying. It's sooo tiring. *spoilt Belgian brat!* xD


I'm going to pay extra attention to Chase's accent next time! :) I'm also really considering buying the DVDs if I find them anywhere (I like to watch A LOT of episodes in one day?) and catch up... I wonder if it's worth it, though? I'm still missing that spark Supernatural had? =/


xDD Chase is a cute name for a Cheetah! Do not get me started on the names people give their bears at BABW. Please. I had twins on Wednesday who BOTH made a Giraffe and named them "Giraf 1" and "Giraf 2". T.T
3rd-Nov-2007 07:34 am (UTC) - WHO SAYS THERE AIN'T NO HOUSE/CHASE ?!
The existence of the house_chase community DEFIES you. ;) Go look in the 2007 calendar to see how active we are! ;)

NAAAAH, you're probably a House/Wilson fan like all the rest. Lots more CANON ACTION - but I don't like House being so nasty to anyone he's close to. Deep down inside I'm really a Wilson/Chase supporter. But I am also a BIG fan of House/Wilson/Chase. ♥ (And yes, fic exists!)

Yes, there is Chase/Wilson! Unfortunately, most of it that I found seems to be Chase/Wilson BUT also House/Wilson. I DISLIKE C/W that's H/W! IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE! That's why it's called a ONE TRUE PAIRING, darn it!

omg! please don't buy the House DVDs. I really discourage it: would you SERIOUSLY want 230429034 episodes of NASTINESS? Back here the House DVDs are still pretty expensive, even for Season 1 - and I don't consider them that wonderful an investment. Wouldn't you much rather buy Supernatural? At least, I would!

xD! I don't think you would have noticed Chase. He doesn't have a massive role to play in most of the episodes. Naturally there are some Chase-centric eps, but they are far and few between.

BUT WOLFRAM WAS SO BEAUTIFUL IT DID NOT COUNT AS CRACK. At least, not for me. My Wolfram love was, IS, powerful and ALL-CONQUERING and he is beautiful in my sight no matter WHAT he wears. ;) *DIES LAUGHING SO HARD AT YOUR GIRAFFE 1 AND GIRAFFE 2 STORY!* THIS IS TOO DAMN FUNNY, THANKS FOR SHARING IT WITH ME! omg, but scary too. Do those twins share each others' BRAINS?! I told my brother and he found it funny too! ♥ It is totally an ASCH-LUKE situation! Imagine! If Asch and Luke went to BABW? Would they call their stuffed toys Cheegle 1 and Cheegle 2?
2nd-Nov-2007 03:13 pm (UTC)
Haha, that was one of my favorite episodes XD cause I'm all about the mafia "in the family" love, if you know what I mean. Chase getting smacked was a bonus. And then there was the House/Wilson romantic Corvette ride of doom...ah, I miss S1 and actually fangirling this series before fandom wank killed it...
2nd-Nov-2007 03:19 pm (UTC)
Chase's kicked!wombat face makes me feel all WARM AND HAPPY inside (he's so pretty when he's emo!). I probably have an inner sadist.

XDDD!! I can see why this was one of your favourite episodes! ♥ Chase getting smacked is a highlight for me, because while I am a Wombat fan I also suspect I am a Chase!torture!fan, too. ♥ ONE DAY I will see that episode where House PUNCHES Chase to the floor. (I like pretty things getting smacked around, but only if there is no blood... well, at least, not that much blood)

XD ROMANTIC CORVETTE RIDE INDEED. I know I make loads of fuss about House and Chase, but really, it is House and Wilson who are the married couple. Chase is just the occasional mistress, and House always kicks HIM out of bed, or leaves before Chase wakes up. :D

You were really good at this series! More intellectual discussion (and good fic) than I'm ever capable of! *grin* But fandom wank killing a series is always darned sad. I always thought that House was a series very likely to attract the fandom wankers, precisely because of House himself - a fandom who enjoys watching someone that EVIL and MEAN and NASTY TO OTHER PEOPLE on a weekly basis probably has seeds of wank just waiting to blossom into drama inside it somewhere! ;)

In the early days I used to lurk around the House MD community and get scared off by the reactions to the episodes. (baby wombat lacked spine, needs to grow one!)
2nd-Nov-2007 03:47 pm (UTC)
You ARE such a sadomasochist ^_~ but then again, we know from that other episode that Chase himself indulges in certain...darker sides...of these adult nightclubs, hehe. There was some debate whether he was a top or a bottom, because the girl he dated liked to be burned (with candlewax, one assumes). But hey, they never said anything about the guys he no doubt dates...

Ah, that punching episode made me sad. Actually, that whole arc made me really hate House, and I don't think I ever recovered. Punching Chase, kicking out Wilson, insulting Cuddy...but anyway. I agree with you XD Chase is the random threesome that gets abandoned and abused, poor dear. Although, Wilson doesn't really get it much better when House is in a bad mood. Maybe it's good that he leaves before Chase wakes up, otherwise on those days when his leg is really hurting...

T_T I had a really great House muse going for a time, but unfortunately, with abandonment, it's fallen out of use. Too sad. I remember you said in a previous post how you can only take so much of a fictional character that's evil and mean and nasty if you have to deal with real people of that same flavor every day XD.

;;; The long-ass analytical posts of doom that look like they came from some pretentious sociology and the gendering of American culture journal? Yeah, I kinda avoided those too.
2nd-Nov-2007 06:32 pm (UTC) - sadomasochism - a realist's approach to pain!
Realist's approach to pain being: "If you're gonna have it, you might as well enjoy it." ;)

XDDDD!!! I wonder how the Chase as a bottom or top debate goes! To my eyes he looks like a very pretty bottom: especially the way he used to act around House when he was new to him. But maybe that's how he is in the "real" world - and then in the S&M realm he gets to unleash his INNER SEME and dominate the way he can't in PPTH. XD

The guys Chase dates. ♥ XDDDD Because I lurk around the Wombat side of fanfiction, I've read a fair number of fic by which Chase dates abusive men and the staff end up having to deal with the fallout.

*hug!* Another House-fan friend of mine had the same reaction as you, actually: she was watching intermittently up to the point, but she gave up at the end of the arc. I think her take on it was that the culmination of that arc made her realise that House was never going to change, even when he knew better, and that there was a limit to which you can watch someone destroy themselves like that. But I completely understand. You know that "Merry Little Christmas" episode in Season 3 where House takes a whole lot of pills around Christmastime and Wilson finds him? I got to that point in the series and I was, "... there's no point following it from here."

But then Chase grew a spine and I discovered he hugged House and I forgive easily. ;)

I agree, Wilson doesn't get it much better. But Wilson knows House better and realises that it's... I suppose, as close as House can get to affection.

Maybe it's good that he leaves before Chase wakes up, otherwise on those days when his leg is really hurting...
XD! TRUE ENOUGH. I forgot about that! My dad and I once had a discussion where I was telling him about the circumstances under which House fired Chase and the fannish discussion of why he did it, and my dad was, "So House is like the drunken sensei who kicks you, but it's really for your own good?"

I do think you had a great House muse, though. ♥ You generated a lot of creative fanwork for the series! I personally like to think that our muses are always up in our heads somewhere, that muses are a point-of-view. Maybe one day he will revive again! :)

you can only take so much of a fictional character that's evil and mean and nasty if you have to deal with real people of that same flavor every day XD.
Oh, that is so true! *grin* It makes me smile to know you remembered that. ♥

*LAUGHING SO HARD* You described those pseudo-intellectual posts PERFECTLY. *WILD APPLAUSE* *LOVES YOU* THAT IS EXACTLY THE WAY THEY WERE (and probably the way they still are). ;)
2nd-Nov-2007 03:24 pm (UTC)
OMG OURAN! IL Mommy & Daddy! ...Damn, I just realised that in both of the fandoms we share I'm stupid. T__T (XD)
2nd-Nov-2007 03:37 pm (UTC)
You are such a dearheart. Sweetie, *I* know it is impossible for you to be stupid because I have READ THE THINGS YOU READ.

XDDDDD!!! Funnily enough I think Jimmy's more of an airhead than Chazz - especially since Chazz HAS street-smarts, they just don't need to appear whenever Jimmy's around.

XD For what it's worth, I think Tamaki is the real KAASAN and Kyouya the real TOU-SAN. Kyouya is distant and outwardly reserved the way a traditional Japanese father is, and Tamaki-KAASAN is warm and loving and worries obsessively about Haruhi, just like a good Kaasan does!
2nd-Nov-2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
Awww. *thinks 'That's so sweet of you!'* Yay! *thinks
'I'm not stupid!' and glomps you like Tamaki* XD And I would too, if you weren't so small and I was so afraid of breaking you.

I think both Chazz and Tamaki are smart in their own way XDDD They just don't know it yet, and it would be better for the world if they didn't coz, well, knowledge is power and it would REALLY upset the status quo. Heh... Chazz's street smarts leave me snickering XDDD

Hmm, that makes sense, but I will always see Tamaki as the tou-san (after all, he's just like his dad XD) and Kyouya as the kaa-san... albeit in a not very normal Japanese family XDDD It's the kind of Japanese family that subverts all types, just like Ouran subverts all shoujo manga stereotypes. But yes, they all (twins included) make a very good family don't they? Even Hatori-san parodied that in two of her extras! *still laughing hysterically over the panel where Kyouya says 'But it's okay for kaa-san to take a bath with her daughter, right?'*
2nd-Nov-2007 04:11 pm (UTC)
Wait, what? I'm pretty sure I never showed you a "I'm with Stupid" Hector/Paris icon, because I was never even in Troy fandom? XD Though I distinctly remember seeing you WITH this icon. XDXDXD

Also, your slapping fetish suddenly made me realise that for all the prissy pink princess things Jimmy did, he never actually SLAPPED anyone. HE'LL FIGHT LIKE A MAN even if he sucks at it XD
2nd-Nov-2007 04:41 pm (UTC)
Yes, you did! ... or wait, at least I think you did! WILL THE REAL PERSON WHO SHOWED ME THIS ICON PLEASE STAND UP. :)) Okay okay, the only other two people it could have been would be anyasy or nescienx.

But it was a million years ago, in my first year in the UK - in early 2004. Maybe it... WAS you? :D

XD! I don't think I used that icon! I just admired it from where I stored it in my folder! It was of Hector and Paris in their TROJAN ARMOR, and an arrow pointing at Paris saying "I'M WITH STUPID". ;)

I have a disturbing slapping fetish. Peter and Harry from Spider-man, Yuuri and Wolfram from KKM, Chase and violent!lawyer from House... XD

JIMMY IS TOTALLY A MANLY MAN (if one with an obsession with cleanliness and sparkly things) in a fifteen-year-old girl's body! His MIND is a guy's - his artistic and sartorial preferences... not always so. ;)

XD! THE IDEA OF JIMMY BITCHSLAPPING CHAZZ IS MAKING ME LAUGH. ;) Chazz wouldn't bitchslap Jimmy, at least not in my head. He thinks it would be too much like hitting a woman, and THE CHAZZ STOOPS LOW WHEN HE HAS TO BUT NOT THAT LOW. ;)
2nd-Nov-2007 04:50 pm (UTC)
No, in fact the Chazz stoops LOWER. XDDDDD (Yes, this sentence alone rated five Ds)
2nd-Nov-2007 04:56 pm (UTC)
The Chazz knows he can do the LAMBADA of low-stooping, but he is much more into having others do the stooping for his... entertainment... and... gratification.
2nd-Nov-2007 05:40 pm (UTC) - Shall we dance?
Very very true. XD
2nd-Nov-2007 04:31 pm (UTC)

2nd-Nov-2007 04:54 pm (UTC)
I have just epic-commented you hokay. :D Now I think I shall go and terrorise you throughout the comments on that post. :D
2nd-Nov-2007 05:01 pm (UTC)
omg I love your comment-terrorizing
2nd-Nov-2007 06:16 pm (UTC) - you know what?
I have gone to search through my National Library catalogue for YGO material. I have discovered to my surprise that one of our libraries actually has the musical score for the movie. ;) I wonder what you thought of the movie. *grin*

To my surprise, my library has a pretty extensive YGO collection! ;) I think I'd go and borrow them - sometimes nothing beats holding a book in your hands (for me). ;)
2nd-Nov-2007 06:26 pm (UTC) - Re: you know what?

I'm just glad it's not canon.

The VILLIAN in it is Anubis, and he's evil or some shit and is also this VERY UGLY BURLY MAN.

And I'm like wtf that's not Anubis. (I love Anubis, he's my favorite Egyptian god).

GOOD PLAN, GO WITH THAT. I have the Japanese volumes, haha.
2nd-Nov-2007 06:36 pm (UTC) - Re: you know what?
! If it makes you that angry (and I can see why) - I'm glad it's not canon, too.

I am reading up on YGO and realising that there seem to be MANY VERSIONS of it running around out there?! Wow!

I really do think Anubis is one of the most maligned Egyptian gods out there. A friend loves Anubis too, and she was so furious at The Mummy (or its sequels) because the movies had WRONG in it.

*whistles!* I'm impressed! ;) And happy for you that you were able to aquire the Japanese volumes! One of the great, great things about being where you are. ♥
2nd-Nov-2007 06:49 pm (UTC) - Re: you know what?
Yes, but I only consider the manga, series one, and duel monsters canon, because both series one and dm are based on the manga. And Takahashi went to Egypt and did his research and would NOT have written Anubis like that, damnit.

I used to have a figure of jackal-Anubis that I kept in my room as a kid. I've always loved him. Just because he's the god that judges you when you die DOES NOT MAKE HIM EVIL.

They're actually the re-releases, with shiny new art.

I'm reading the novel American Gods right now, and they got Anubis right, and it pleases me.

Anubis placed a pair of golden scales in front of him.

"So this is where we find out what I get?" whispered Shadow to Bast. "Heaven? Hell? Purgatory?"

"If the feather balances," she said, "you get to choose your own destination."

"And if not?"

She shrugged, as if the subject made her uncomfortable. "Then we feed your heart and soul to Ammet, the Eater of Souls..."

"Maybe," he said. "Maybe I can get some kind of a happy ending."

"Not only are there no happy endings," she told him, "there aren't even any endings."
3rd-Nov-2007 11:54 am (UTC) - Peter says, "OMG."
Chase! ♥

I love your "I'm with Stupid" icons.
3rd-Nov-2007 08:03 pm (UTC) - OH I LOVE THAT ICON OF YOURS

CHASE INDEED! omg I just went and played my brother Chase dialogue because I was, "Tell me if that is an Australian accent, cause it SURE don't sound like one to me." XDDDD!!!

Thank you so much! ♥ I'm so glad you liked them! :) I made them to AMUSE, and I am glad they are amusing other people! :D
