Ten Fandoms 
28th-Nov-2006 05:53 am
Ten fandoms, no repeats - arrch's version is evil beyond all evil, but I am much more kind.

1. Being a cranky redhead whose murderous expression scares all subordinates away isn't an excuse to dress him up in a nekomimi maid outfit, call him kuzu, and make his blond servant think that it's his secret hobby. [Ouran High School Host Club, lacewood]

2. Not only is the hero of the story a replica, but so are all his friends, and they're all living insurance policies for their originals. [The Island, lacewood]

3. Clueless and frequently stupid hero is engaged to a green-eyed blond royal who constantly reminds him of their engagement, suffers a shocking betrayal by a beloved mentor figure, is occasionally surrounded by flocks of extremely cute and implausible creatures who keep repeating the same nonsensical word, discovers his apparently cheerful and easygoing best friend is so so so much more than he seems, has strange dealings with the blond king of neighbouring country, and has a mysterious other self who keeps taking over his body to perform stunning feats of total awesome and making him lose all recollection of what ensues. [KKM, llamrei ♥]

4. I'm you, and I HATE MYSELF. [Tales of the Abyss, elvaron and kasumi_blue]

5. Scruffy Brit in the original, expressionless American in the adaptation. [Constantine, mushrooms]

6. His other half's a green-eyed redhead, his best friend wants revenge on him for his father's death, and on top of all that, he has to keep saving the world. [Spider-man, mushrooms! ♥]

7. Life goes down the toilet after your best friend gets bitten by a spider and subsequently wants to eradicate you and all your kind. [Darren Shan, dorkodile]

8. You'd never mistake him for a perfect copy of the original, but said original wants to take over his body anyway, and cross swords with his favourite blond in a spectacularly slashy manner while at it. [Final Fantasy: Advent Children, elvaron ♥]

9. Allowing someone to be your replica is always a terrible idea, because when you do, you give them absolute control over you. [The Prestige, lacewood]

10. A dragon and a tiger inherit a kungfu school! [Dragon Tiger Gate, mushrooms]

Bonus: (A lot of love if anyone manages to guess this one, and my condolences for having actually read this dreck) 11. Hero goes on a quest for a sword belonging to a spirit who talks to him as long as he's in possession of its jewel, while a minor antagonist who's constantly covered in blood keeps kidnapping and trying to kidnap a person dear to him and wishes he had a twin with whom to share his dirty work.

XDDDD The surprising thing is that almost nobody has guessed Tales of the Abyss - as in no one has ventured it as an answer to any of the suggestions. Only one person has!

*grin* Sobs, it isn't 9. But it's okay! Not even Abyss fans seem to be able to guess which one Abyss is.

Asch's backstory of angsty doom! *KICKS THE POOR BOY INTO THE ABYSS* No love lost between us, but he'll grow on me yet. ; )

;______; You didn't put ToA in there? Unless it's 4), but it seems unlikely. Well, okay, it could probably work too...but I was drawn to the "replica" keyword and forgot everything else.

My sister wants to know why such a happy genki brightly-colored (albeit Cheagle-abusing) game is called something as DOOOOOOMMM as Tales of the Abyss. Any thoughts?
28th-Nov-2006 09:21 am (UTC) - *GRIN*
I certainly put TOA in there. *grin* In fact - I put TOA everywhere, because I described everything so it sounded at least a little bit like Abyss, where it was possible. XD


Heh, because a very big plot point happens in the in-game Abyss, called Qlipoth. It's one of the central events of the game and changes everything. That's why the Abyss is so important. ; )

Happy genki brightly-coloured game? *griiin* It's just like KKM. You're all OOH, cheagles! Hee, cute guys! OH, THE GAY! And then the game steps on your heart and drowns you in angst. JUST LIKE KKM.

Oh well, now you tell me XP. Maybe my ignorance of it helped, since in the end it was an either-or coin flip.

...Is it bad that the first thing I thought when I read Qlipoth is, Can you really pronounce that?!


Yes, but KKM didn't have cheagles. Cheagles are cute and fluffy and I should hate them, yet because Luke abuses them so much, I have to want to protect them. This is some seriously, seriously fucked up reverse psychology.


Please tell me Mieu doesn't die.
28th-Nov-2006 10:07 am (UTC) - I love you for moments like these.
I love that you're into the twisted psychosexual manipulation and hot!intelligent!world-domination types, and at the same time you can feel protective instincts toward small and endearing animals. *hugs you tight*

Mieu doesn't die! *pathugs* No worries on that front. Cheagles are surprisingly resilient.

XD Qlipoth. XDDD I kind of pronounce it "Kli - poth".

KKM had bearbees! Not quite like cheagles, though. Cheagles actually make me giddy, but I love them very very much. And I love that you want to protect them.

*snug* Mieu is quite safe, and in the end Luke learns to be nice to him, too. And Mieu writes in Luke's diary, even!
