Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
HI NEW PEOPLE! ♡ It is always, always fun to meet you, even if we met via stalkerage (especially ♥! if we met through stalkerage! namely, stalkerage on my part). I suppose I can blame this on the fact that when I was young and impressionable, I was told that the really good lawyers became good lawyers because they were able to become completely obsessed with whichever case they were given to handle, and that's how they're able to argue it from every angle and know every fact about it. Only I seem to have gone and applied it to every aspect of everything I'm interested in. One day I will run out of energy for behaving like this, but not just yet.

I'm going to link the CFUD taken campers list directly here because I always have to do so much navigation to get to it ordinarily - all because I won't type a certain expletive. This extends to IRL, really - whenever I talk about CFUD IRL I just say CFUD. sukishi got to see this yesterday, when we were talking about CFUD (and lots of amazing things besides ♥), whenever I start reading the non-acronym out I always stop right before That Word and make a half-hearted, embarrassed wave, and say, "That Word".

Also, the same person who plays Nia on CFUD also plays Gokudera. Part of me is going, "WAIT, HOW?! HOW?!" - because Nia and Gokudera? Worlds apart - and the rest of me is going, "TWICE THE LOVE! ♡" because I love Nia this much and I adore Gokudera.

I never seem to have as much time for CFUD-reading as I would like - naturally, because there's just so much ground to cover - but sometimes the camp characters who end up being my favourites aren't always the ones I start out expecting would be my favourites. Which is a good thing, because life is a great wonderful surprise sometimes, like running into your favourite people when you least expect it (because this country is so small!).

And that's just like LJ, really, because fandom is always smaller than you think it is, and guess what I did again!

For some inexplicable reason I seem to remember greykings linking a CFUD Reborn character essay/summary, but I must have remembered it wrong. I've been reading tastelikeash's character posts, because they're fascinating, and they're a quick way of catching up on all of the canon I haven't got time to go through, because I read text faster than I read manga or watch anime. A particular favourite is this one (loev Tenth, indeed).

I was talking to mushrooms yesterday (which ALSO so much fun) and she mentioned the Gokudera character song, which cracked me up so hard when I finally saw it. The song can be summarised as THE TENTH IS LOVE, in more words.

I suspect part of the reason I adore Gokudera/Tsuna so much is because it is visually very similar to Riku/Sora, which I also adore. And speaking of fandom being smaller than you think: I was so delighted to see some of my all-time favourite Abyss artists also drawing Gurren Lagann (one day if there is time I will make an entire post to express my joy), and now I have discovered that one of my favourite Viral/Simon writers also writes Gokudera/Tsuna! OH JOY OF JOYS ♥

Also plusqueparfait linked the BIGGEST (Rossiu-Kinon-Guinble) official Gurren Lagann scan I have EVER seen in my entire life.

I was wondering if you wanted to see this pretty picture I found on 4chan (I know you're all for Jounouchi/Yuugi, but I figured all things Yugioh is fine for you):



I wish I could find the fanartist's website and properly credit it, but it's just a random picture that was posted on 4chan. (If anyone finds this post offensive, feel free to delete it!)
27th-Jan-2008 03:43 pm (UTC) - Re: Hiya =]
When trying to find out who that blond, blue-eyed cutie was in your icon, I went to visit your iconpage and promptly exploded with joy at the fact that you have such a pretty depressed!Gokudera icon. I love Gokudera. And think he's hilarious when he's depressed.

JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING YGO is ALL KINDS OF ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL for me, so you got me right! *grin* And that? THAT is just about THE prettiest Yuugi-and-Kaiba fanart I've EVER seen. Thank you so much for linking it! *beams* It makes me HAPPY!

AHAHAHAHAHA I JUST NOTICED THAT THAT THAT their headphone wires MAKE A HEART ♥

Also if anyone finds this post offensive, they can come and take it up with me. *smiles the cheerful happy niko-niko SECRETLY HIDING FANGS smile* ♥

4chan! I do wish I knew how to navigate that site. It fills me with endless confusion, but thank you for finding this lovely thing there and linking it here where I can admire it! ♥

It may even be that the original artist's site is no longer in existence, as is true of a fair bit of YGO fanart, so while the no-credit posting can be annoying when we see it on 4chan, it may actually be one of the few ways in which an artist's work survives, even without attribution. It reminds me of the digital equivalent of museums. ;) Repositories of Fanart From the Ages Past! ;)

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ♥ Inner YGO fan INTENSELY happy now.

This extends to IRL, really - whenever I talk about CFUD IRL I just say CFUD.

Whenever us CFUDers talk about CFUD IRL, we just say C-FUD. It's the normal thing to do. XD
27th-Jan-2008 03:46 pm (UTC)
But I - I - I - I'm a special kind of normal, so I say C- F - U - D.

Like M - I - C - K - E - Y.

I think I knew this before, I can't remember how, or was it that someone told me, or I heard this done IRL.

OH GOD why would you link to my post of kinon fangirl/NERD RAAAAAAGE

good thing it's friends-locked ;_;
28th-Jan-2008 12:51 am (UTC)
Because your special brand of Kinon!love is a beautiful thing that should be shared with the world.

And also because there is ... probably very little on your LJ that is more embarrassing than my original post here? *grin*

And also maybe if I direct people there someone may have something AWESOME that's official Rossiu/Kinon! Or something. *grin*
27th-Jan-2008 08:22 pm (UTC)
*pounces* THERE IS GL DOUJINSHI! ON yaoi_daily! OF SIMON X VIRAL! *SQUEE*
28th-Jan-2008 01:26 am (UTC) - GIRL ♥
IF YOU HAD ANY IDEA OF HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW, YOU WOULD RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU COULD. ♥

IT IS AN AMAZING AMAZING DOUJIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LINKING IT! ♥

ALSO! I have something for you, so when we meet up soon, I WILL PASS IT TO YOU! *beams*

*smile smile smile* I've been told that it's a common problem people have with my posts. That, and, "I don't know what to say." I privately imagine them recoiling in horror at the sparkles. *grin*

♥! You're so sweet. Thank you ♡

and YES for calling it CFUD! AND AND Camp Eff You Die? AMAZING. I LIKE.

*HAPPY DANCE AT NOT BEING ALONE on this front*

PLAYERS ONLY GET BETTER WITH AGE ; )

And *wry smile!* I think I'm one of the oldest CFUD-watchers. I would LOVE to be proven wrong, but I don't think so. *laughs*
28th-Jan-2008 01:38 am (UTC)
CFUD is awesome
28th-Jan-2008 01:45 am (UTC)
YES

My attittude to it is I'VE GOT YOU IN MY SIIIIIIIGHTS ♡
28th-Jan-2008 03:42 am (UTC)
GokuTsuna is waaaaay more obsessive than Riku/Sora XD On Gokudera's part.
Have you heard the doujin song for that pairing? XD Crazy Japanese fans ♥
The lyrics were so sweet I think I had instant diabetes orz
28th-Jan-2008 06:00 am (UTC) - THERE IS A GOKUTSUNA DOUJIN SONG?!
I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS A GOKUTSUNA doujin song! omg! if you have the link, please link me? ♥ I tried the community and Google and turned up nothing, so if you remember where it is that would be GREAT ♥

HEE HEE HEE. That's because Gokudera is 1000x more obsessive and 10000 more desperate than Riku. Riku knows that Sora's love for him is special. Gokudera, on the other hand, is incredibly insecure AND has to contend for his Jyuudaime's love with about a million other people like Yamamoto and K-chan and Haru.

*grin* I find it hard to even type the full name, so score you! ;) XDXDXDXD

Camp's another one I hear used fairly often, actually!

But I like that there are as many names for camp as there are campers.
28th-Jan-2008 01:24 pm (UTC)
i-i. i did post something like that (commentary on tasteslikeash and lolmafialol's commentary, lol), but then i edited the entry, cut-copied the paragraph, AND THEN copied something else instinctively on msn. OTL it was great woe, woe.

i have to find time to (re)write about it and also write fic as reisha has been bugging me. (it'll all be 8059 or 5980 though, i am going to show her GOKUDERA CAN TOP haha. XD)

p.s. my investment module continues to kill me so bad (my entire row of dean's listers went HUH??? collectively during today's seminar, i feel vindicated, also i feel like i'm collecting dean's listers OTL), it was thanks to the readings and tutorials for today's seminar that i had to miss SOY (as in i completely forgot about it until the morning sigh).

p.p.s. also i want pictures. :D;;;;
28th-Jan-2008 03:02 pm (UTC) - GOKUDERA APPROVES!
I APPROVE! And so does Gokudera! SHOW THE WORLD THAT HE CAN TOP! Just.. not around Jyuudaime. Is horrifically like Gunter-Yuuri, really, the Gokudera-Tsuna.

Also this icon and this icon look like GokuTsuna if you look at them the right way, yes? :D

!!!! I knew I'd seen the Reborn character commentary on your LJ! *hugs!* Thank you, I really thought I'd been imagining things over there. AND OW OW, I feel your pain! But it was because of you that I knew to go poking around CFUD, SO IT IS ALL GOOD? ♥

XDXDXD Reading this makes me think, "Dean's Listers! INTO THE POKEBALL! GO GO GO!"

INVESTMENT MODULE - *CRIES* - I have a two-hour crash course in derivatives tomorrow, I FEEL YOUR PAIN ~ *HUGS YOU* I AM HAPPY YOU FEEL VINDICATED but I also know that you are working hard for it! ♥

XDXDXDDXD It's okay, sweetheart: privately I don't think you missed much, not going to SOY: is way too far to go, really; investment > fandom? I think Cosfest is still the one to go for. ;)

Ahh, reborn and gurren lagann. I'm not in either of these fandoms, although I know of a few artists who are high on Reborn.
1)Kurot, whose lj is well.. kurot.
And 2) joodlez, who has a dA account: joodlez.deviantart.com

So hopefully those fanarts can bring you much happiness, because although I am very familliar with the names and faces, I really don't know enough about the story to carry out a Reborn/Gurrnlagann convo with you. Gomen nasai. OTL
28th-Jan-2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
I know so many people who are high on Reborn. I know even more people high on Reborn than high on Gurren Lagann! SADNESS.

So I make up for it by being high on BOTH.

OH OH OH ♥ Kurot does such lovely Reborn art.

!!! Joodlez's art actually reminds me of Kurot's style! I shall certainly check it out! ♥

IT IS OKAY! IT IS FUN TO TALK TO YOU NO MATTER WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT! :D
