Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Tonight was already an unbelievable night, and then:

'cause my love for you is blind

Lifehouse, 'Blind' DL

Completely aside from the fact that anything written by manic_intent is automatically my happy place, this FFXII AU Basch/Balthier fic (warning: spoilers) made me incredibly happy. I love AUs, I adore FFXII, and I would worship manic_intent's writing only it deserves even more than that. ♥

the actual lyrics:
I am so sorry they are so emo! I do not mean to be emo! But it's such a soothing song ♥

I was young but I wasn't naive
I watched helpless as you turned around to leave
And still I have the pain I have to carry
A past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind

But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me died when I let you go

The funny thing is, I feel that this part of the song, at least, has distinctly Basch-Ashe undertones.

I wish this song was happier! My version of Love is Blind usually is more along the Garfunkel lines:

I Only Have Eyes For You

My love must be a kind of blind love. I can't see anyone but you.
Are the stars out tonight? I don't know if it's cloudy or bright. I only have eyes for you, dear.

The moon may be high, but I can't see a thing in the sky. Cause I only have eyes for you.

I don't know if we're in a garden or on a crowded avenue.
You are here, so am I. Maybe millions of people go by.
But they all disappear from view and I only have eyes for you. </center>


Also, night-before last's meeting with mildlyinsane, risax and julineci was THE WOW. ♥ As Omi says: when we're together, a group mind forms. ♥

AND TO EVERYBODY: THANK YOU YOU GUYS. ♥ I wake up tomorrow morning and SCAN MY THANKS IN LOVE. ♥

Next up, also: Asch and Luke explain the court process. I haven't had this much fun since I made Yuuri and Wolfram explain defamation. :D

... don't you mean Asch explains and Luke goes "....?"

>____>; Whatever it is, it sounds terribly amusing. Oh! And Lifehouse = win. That's an awesome song.

Glad you seem to be feeling better, ^^;

Not at all. *grin* Luke gets to be a teaching aid. ♥

It's a great song! ;) Even better when sung live! One of my favourite songs by them is "You and Me" - the wedding version. In my more evil moments it's a happy!Asch-Luke song. >D

Glad you seem to be feeling better
Eheh. *wry smile* To tell the truth, part of me still feels rotten about the whole thing. But I figured talking about it any more wouldn't do anyone any good. So - moving on.

word being "aid"...? 8D
I'll be waiting for Asch to be yelling "OBJECTION KUZU!!!!" at Luke XD

In the sense that Luke gets thrown out of the courtroom, yes! ;)

XDD Would Asch be so polite? In my eyes he'd be just THROWS LUKE OUT OF COURT. ♥

IT IS SO MUCH LOVE. ♥ And I'm glad you love it too! XDDD

I'm more familiar with the Garfunkel version, too. :o
I never heard the other song before.

Well...I could always hear it again! I NEED LUV. D:

I look forward to THAT...simply because I have a hard time imagining Luke explaining anything even remotely intelligible. XD
Asch should probably just save himself the trouble and explain TO Luke. XD

Speaking of- I finally stopped being lazy and scanned something! Yay! <3
6th-Apr-2007 11:10 am (UTC) - all the L O V E in the world! *beams*
*grin* I've actually never heard the Garfunkel song, but I agree with its sentiments! *beams* More so than the actual Lifehouse song. ;)

Well...I could always hear it again! I NEED LUV. D:
I COMPLETELY LOVE YOU. ♥ So much! You guys made me smile and go HAPPY all over. Not to mention both of you being blondes. *grin* Whenever I'm watching an anime, I tend to go straight for the blond one. XD

XDDDD Luke doesn't get to explain much. He gets to be thrown around to aid Asch's explaining. xD

!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm on my scanning computer at the moment and need to switch back to properly thank you, but I will! ♥ Thank you so much, from what I can see of it: it's utterly gorgeous! :D

hope you don't mind me ganking ^^
Hmmm... Basch/Balthier... that hadn't crossed my mind yet XD
6th-Apr-2007 11:12 am (UTC)
*BEAMS* IT'S ALL GOOD! Please gank away, it's there to be shared! ; ) It's a lovely song!

*GRIIN* To tell the truth, if I'd played the game on my own, Basch/Balthier wouldn't have crossed my mind either. Basch/Vaan and Balthier/Vaan would have been far more likely to me, but then it's a typical case of Main Character Harem. XDD

HIVE-MIND IS LOVE! *_* It was so much fun on Wednesday, we must try to do this again! \^o^/ I still need to pimp you more stuff! XDDD
