Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
UNIVERSITY IS EATING SO MUCH MORE OF MY LIFE THAN I EXPECTED IT TO. I am behind on about EIGHT BILLION LJ POSTS, MY GOD. I will attempt to cure this with what time I DO get on the computer these days. I have been meaning to do an abyss doujin post for forever, but then I get sidetracked by writing 600+ word entries on the lyrics on Mooche doujin. THE LYRICS ALONE. OH WELL LET ME DEMONSTRATE. Next post is the 5% of the entire abyss doujin post I have written so far.

THE DARREN SHAN MANGA IS TOTAL LOVE. I COMPLETELY need to scan it. The second installment is out (heard this by way of maiki, thank you!) and just as I said I shouldn't I ran right off to Kino AND THEY HAD IT! I thought I was resigned to waiting two weeks or forever, but NO IT IS HERE. And it seems like the Orchard Kino only ever gets two copies - either that, or I MOVE SLOW, which is untrue, but anyyyyyyway. The first installment was 72 pages, which is also how I discovered I can read Cirque Du Freak, Steve, and Darren, all through Tales of the Abyss character names. Reading it at first was honestly a little odd to me (much like the first time I heard KH2 with all the Disney characters speaking in Japanese, YES I AM SLOW), because I'd imagined everyone in English for so long, and none of them looked anything like the way I imagined them, but I got used to it. Got to quite like it, even, it's like a whole new series from the series I remember now.

ANYWAY VOLUME TWO. There isn't the Steve and Darren bedroom scene I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to see (basically, I meant the 'WHY ARE YOU AVOIDING ME, Darren?' scene) there is HALF of that scene left but they do it on a STREET and not in Darren's house BUT BUT BUT, IT HAD DARREN HOLDING UNCONSCIOUS!STEVE'S hand, and Mr. Crepsley is about 8,000 times MORE HOT THAN I HAD IMAGINED HIM, although that may have to do with the fact that A, who was translating for me, switched from her youthful/noisy Darren voice STRAIGHT into ONE HELL OF AN INCREDIBLE CREPSLEY VOICE that sent shivers down my spine and had me go 'HOW DID YOU KNOW HOW TO USE THAT VOICE?!' at which she just laughed. ALSO, MR. CREPSLEY GOES 'NYA'. NYA I TELL YOU. NYA. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MY BRAIN IS BROKEN.

Remind me to talk about voices when translating doujin when I make an abyss doujin post, because some of you guys are DAMNED GOOD at voices. I AM SO SORRY MY FRIENDS FOR UNLEASHING ABYSS AND MORE ABYSS AND EVEN MORE ABYSS ON ALL OF YOU, you know who you are, feel free to demand recompense. ♥

But there is the whole 'DARREN YOU'RE MY ONLY FRIEND WHAT WOULD I DO IF I LOST YOU' and the way Darren reacts to Steve being bitten by the spider is REALLY DARN GOOD.

The best Darren Shan fanfiction I have ever read was... Crepsley/Darren. Set to either Savage Garden or Evanescence. IF YOU MUST ASK ONE CAN GET VERY DESPERATE WHEN ATTEMPTING TO FIND FANFICTION FOR SERIES without many writers, which also explains how I know where to find IonXSink fic in Chinese, on a site you have to REGISTER an account for to read, and I can link it to you if you want it. Anyway, Darren Shan, I found ONE HINTED STEVE/DARREN. ISH. fic, which was Steve POV and kinda dark and good, but really really short.

OH IT IS ACTUALLY SO INCREDIBLE TO SEE THIS SERIES IN JAPANESE because hearing Steve yell "YOU LIE!" in Japanese is somehow 7,0000 times funnier than hearing it in English. Also to hear Steve go, "Ano this, Ano that" IS DAMN FUNNY to me because I JUST NEVER ASSOCIATE STEVE WITH 'ANO' anything.

To tell the absolute truth I am now sifting through the 840+ comments on afrai's journal to see if I can find any mention of Dragon Tiger Gate slash.

And staying up to talk to Niisan, of course. Oh darn I don't remember if she's having a firm dinner tonight. NEVER MIND I'LL WAIT.

OH I NEED TO MENTION that there is this guy in my university WHO REMINDS ME COMPLETELY OF SUZUKI CHIHIRO WITH AN ACCEPTABLE HAIRSTYLE, and it did not help that the first time I saw him he was in pink and he has dyed hair which is the Suzuki shade and I was all "........ /////////////////// ^____________________^" ... obviously, I am far from coherent.

Also I wanted to reassure Eve and Pei Yi and 'frai that I do not always write about old men, so how about I post this one abyss drabble thing I wrote, and let's all imagine the word Luke is Tiger, and the name Asch is Dragon.

OH IN MY UNIVERSITY THIS WEEK THERE WERE TWO PEOPLE FALLING INTO CEMENT PITS. CEMENT PITS I ASK YOU. And EVERY SINGLE ONE OF OUR LECTURERS who mentioned this to us said, "I said that the students don't need to use their skills so fast! What are we doing, bringing negligence actions in our own backyard?"

We didn't mention DTG slash, so you don't have to dig through the comments. XD However, if you would LIKE TO START, certainly, feel free. XDXDXD

Also, ARE YOU TRYING TO PALM US OFF WITH FIC FOR THE WRONG SERIES? *WOUNDED!* :O!!! I am afraid I cannot approve of this idea without prior inspection of the fic in questi- NO MUST BE STRONG

(You are at NUS, right? There are CEMENT PITS in NUS? XDXDXD)
24th-Aug-2006 03:43 pm (UTC) - OH WHY DO I NOT HAVE A SLASHIER ICON THAN YOURS.
(I am at the NEW CAMPUS, which, as one of my lecturers says, WILL BE LOOKING GOOD IN THREE YEARS' TIME). AT LEAST IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE WARZONE I SAW WHEN I FIRST WALKED INTO IT ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO.

IT IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION and my teacher derives GREAT GLEE in looking up during a land law lecture to declare that the drilling going on is UNFAIR COMPETITION.)

:D DON'T WORRY, I AM ALREADY SETTING ABOUT ATTEMPTING TO GENERATE IT :D YOU KNOW I THOUGHT ABOUT PAGODAFIC ALL NIGHT AND THIS MORNING. :D :D :D

I need to show you that #@)$(#@)$#)$ fic that turned up because of you telling me about that fic about Shirosaki and the zither and dying pandas. that was an undeniable stroke of breathtaking GENIUS.

XDDDDD I am attempting to give you fic for the wrong series because fic for the right series INVOLVES A PAGODA.

by the way the two of you are responsible for me posting at all tonight. :D :D :D

I DECLARE I WILL HELP 'FRAI HI T THE 1,000 COMMENTS MARK here.

*hugs*

i can so empathise... *hugs again*

i hardly have time to sleep or eat. it's always work work work, lecture, tutorials...deadlines her there and everywhere...

i try to make it a point to check lj at the very least once a day...or else the backlogs will be terrible... (like my anime backlogs... i have a 100-discs spool of DVD-Rs of unwatched anime downloads D: )

... i need better time management... and self control (but internet and fangirly things can be such distractions!!!)... at the end of a day of taking all the shitty crap at work one'd feel very much like to indulge in one's obsession but no... there's always lecture/textbooks readings to catch up on and tutorials to do....

ARGH~!

I haven't seen you in ages~!!!!
24th-Aug-2006 05:02 pm (UTC) - HIIIIIII *EMITS HEARTS*
*hugs you so tightly* You're amazing - I always marvelled at the people I knew who worked and studied at the same time, because it is a near-impossible thing. All the best for the upcoming deadlines! *hugs tight* I should be working harder myself!

!!! I used to check LJ once a day, but recently it's gotten so hectic that I come home, read LJ for five minutes, and then tune out because I'm so tired. BUT WHOA ON THE 100 DISC ANIME DOWNLOADS, we can always help you kill them together when you're free XD

(!!! It's the Internet and fangirly distractions that help us survive the things we have to do!! *griiin* And sometimes enjoy the things we have to do better! :D)

!!! I WILL COME DOWN SOON? farfello is back and I am DEFINITELY making a trip down while she's back?! *griiin* Or if you're around during weekends it'd be great to see you again! I always am afraid of imposing especially if you're busy! *hides* But it would be so good to see you again! *beams*

NO BEDROOM SCENE? DX But I guess everything else still sounded nice.

Anyway, Darren Shan, I found ONE HINTED STEVE/DARREN. ISH. fic, which was Steve POV and kinda dark and good, but really really short.

Hahah, I think I read that fic years ago! XD It's sad how small this fandom is.

YOUR USAGE OF CAPS MAKES ME FEEL THE EXCITEMENT IN YOU. Which is good. XD
24th-Aug-2006 04:57 pm (UTC) - WHOA YEAH! ;D
Initially I typed this as "They do it half in the bedroom and half on the street" and it just sounded so bad. What I meant was that most of the content of the bedroom scene still occurs, but on the street instead. BUT IT MEANS THAT DARREN AND STEVE GET TO BE DRAWN SILHOUETTED ON A BRIDGE. FOR REAL. I JUST XDDDD like anything!

The time frame's a lot tighter, which I guess I'd expect when they make it a manga - the action's quite compacted, but it's all there. The lines change a little, but they stay in the same in meaning: I just went to drag out my book 1 for comparison. In the book, Steve says, "Don't lie to me, Darren," and in the manga, he says, "You're such a bad liar, Darren." I know, tiny tiny differences, but I remember them XDD

Also Mr. Crepsley seems to come off as a more... seductive? figure in the manga than I imagined him in the book. Maybe because when I read the book my chief image of him was as orange-haired creepy crepsley. xD

We read the same Steve/Darren fic? *GRIIIN* It's the one about Steve vowing revenge, I should think, of what I can remember? And all hate-filled but OH I wish that one had had more slash, the writer, I liked. And we found the same fic! XD Goes to show how determined we were. ; ) AND how small the fandom is. I was actually surprised there wasn't more Steve/Darren, and a heck of a lot more Crepsley/Darren than I imagined. I REMEMBER BEING SO HAPPY TO FIND YOU. XDDDD

when you said "my university", i thought of ucl first, and i thought of ucl again until i read the sentence again for the third time ;______;

*packs you back to london* <-ooooooohboy. that's going to make so many people so mad at me >D
24th-Aug-2006 07:16 pm (UTC) - KAAAAAASAAAAAAAN!!!!!!
xD I can actually imagine UCL with cement abysses pits better than I can NUS, actually.

*happily climbs into luggage and awaits going back with you*

I'M NOT COMPLETE UNTIL I'M WITH YOU AND NIISAN.

ADVENT PIECES!CHIBI KADAJ.

I SEE YOU TOMORROW AT 12.30pm? ♥

There's a Darren Shan MANGA?! Waargh, I didn' t know of this! When did this happen?! Yes, please do scan or stuff!
28th-Aug-2006 01:05 pm (UTC) - BECAUSE DARREN SHAN IS LOVE :D
I heard of the Darren Shan manga through this post here. It's amazing, NO ONE looks the way I imagined them to! ; ) It just happened about a month ago, and this month for the first time I finally saw the manga! I AM SO THRILLED. :D

OH I WILL TOTALLY SCAN THE DARREN SHAN MANGA! It's serialised in one of the Japanese comic magazines, and THE FIRST ISSUE IS 72 PAGES. ; ) I don't think I can scan it all, but I certainly will scan some of it, and I can always bring it to you so you can see it in person! *grin* We can meet up sometime if you're free, so I can show you DARREN SHAN LOVE! XD (I had NO IDEA you were into Darren Shan too?) ♥
25th-Aug-2006 12:22 am (UTC)
AHAHHAHAHA OUR UNI EATS SOULS~

But cement pits? Why were we not informed of this wonderful tidbit? *giggles so hard*

Annnnnnnd my lecturers just look up at the drilling and go: "Can someone please kill them?" XD
28th-Aug-2006 01:07 pm (UTC) - TAMAKI IS PRETTY : ))))
OUR UNI EATS SOULS AND THEN DEMANDS MORE, MORE, MORE. XDDD (Seriously, your schedule is way more WOW in that regard than mine. You're amazing. ♥ )

XDDD Perhaps your lecturers were waiting for Monday to tell you all about the cement pits that are brightening up our uni!! XD or maybe the world was waiting for me to tell you ♥ I feel almost like going to look for one of those pits now, it sounds fascinating. I want to know how people can fall into them!

XDDDDD Your lecturers!!! Premeditated murder!! ; ) Mine actually said, "We had this drilling in the old campus, too! Nothing's changed!" XD
25th-Aug-2006 01:21 am (UTC)
there is darren shan manga? *GASP* scan!!!!!
28th-Aug-2006 01:13 pm (UTC) - THERE IS DEFINITELY DARREN SHAN MANGA! ;D
I had no idea you liked Darren Shan manga! *GRIIIN*

I'll scan the fascinating scenes and put them up soon! *grin* Hang in there! ; ) For now, here's the site for the manga! ; )
25th-Aug-2006 05:49 am (UTC)
YOU POSTED! AND I MISS YOU!

And nii-san is a complete sap...
28th-Aug-2006 01:16 pm (UTC) - CHIBI KADAJ MISSES YOU *HUGS TIGHT*
I think you'd be in Bruges as I write this now? *hugs tight* Hope you enjoyed your trip, sweets, and I'll catch you and Lin on the phone when you're back in Antwerp? *grin*

CHIBI KADAJ MISSES YOU TOO! *HUGS* HE IS SORRY IF THE RAIN falling upon you is the result of his emo getting into the Lifestream!! *hugs*

Chibi Kadaj is bigger sap. *snugs* because: this is the abyss scene that reminds me of how well you know me.

Guy: Hey, Luke. Could you possibly be scared of meeting Asch?

Luke: ……even though we haven’t seen each other in a long time, you understood immediately.

Guy: That’s because we’ve been together for a long time.
26th-Aug-2006 01:18 am (UTC)
D: But you're in SG. It's so rare to see anyone resembling anyone non-RL-existentially good looking. D: You must be terribly lucky.

(Gods. Britney Spears singing on the TV. D: "I must confess I still believe~")

Cement pits? What?
28th-Aug-2006 01:19 pm (UTC) - *GRIIIN*
XDDD I think it's because Suzuki Chihiro isn't incredibly pretty. He's very normal looking, and also, I am very kind and biased when it comes to thinking people look like other famous people. Either that, or extremely willing to lower my standards for likeness so as to enjoy a seiyuu-lookalike wandering around my school. *griiiin*

(BRITNEY IS SO MUCH FUN. Unfortunately look at her since she's had her kids. :(( She's hardly the same person anymore!)

CEMENT ABYSSES. ♥ My uni's still undergoing lots of construction, hence the cement pits, and hence the people falling into said pits. XDDDDD

Almost makes me feel like running over to them and asking "HOW IS IT LIKE TO BE IN AN ABYSS?" ♥

Okay this is probably going to be the most random comment you've received but I was googline Dragon Tiger Gate Screencaps and your LJ weirdly came up as one of the results though obviously you don't have any though I'm really excited you've seen/heard of the movie cause I just watched it and really liked it though am dying for some screen caps of it since as I watched it all I could think of was how great some shots would look as avatars. So long question short, do you know where I could find some?
8th-Oct-2006 05:48 pm (UTC)
Google does turn up the most surprising results. The best site I've come across is the main site for the movie here. Unfortunately the site doesn't appear to let you right-click save, so the only way around it would be screencapping via the Print Screen function. Hope this helps. The movie's great, and I'm glad you liked it! I enjoyed it intensely.
