anime - amatsuki - smile - summer

back back back

[001] DevART pretties: I adore this pic with its magic circle and elemental magic. Okay, magic circles will ALWAYS be cool in my books. Then there's this super cool Tiger and I think this one is Ninja!Sasuke but can't be sure...still spiffy though :)

[002] Original slash fic rec: The God Eaters by Jesse Hajicek. Usually I search for fics by review count, but this time I just searched for fics that were over 100K words. Since this fic was just posted in its entirety last month, it hasn't gotten much exposure on FP, but it was definitely a decent read. And I loved how the author basically says, here's the whole fic, if you like it, you can buy it here on amazon. Added it to my shopping cart yesterday :)

Edit: BTW the prologue is pretty much the weak part of the story so read past it or skip it entirely if you need to.

[003] There are so few published slash novels that had me going \o\o/o/ as soon as I read them - one was at the end of highschool (The Last Herald Mage by Mercedes Lackey) and the other was about a year ago (Hero by Perry Moore) - but either the published books I adore AREN'T actually slashy, or if there are books with slash, they don't really click perfectly *sigh*

[004] The casting of Avatar pisses me off, but its the comments made by the main actors that make me want to hit something. You can keep up wth the failboat!casting over here through glockgal

[005] On the manga front, I've been reading two very different titles. The first is Hyakkiyakou Shou and it's sort of like Natsume Youjincho, XXXholic etc. where the main character can see spirits/ghosts. It's got a darker, creepier feel to it, but its also extremely cool in its own way.

The other manga is shounen-ai and its called Golden Days. The main character's spirit ends up traveling through time and ends up in the body of his grandfather when he was a teen. Unlike the other manga which has 5 volumes out, this one only has about 7 chapters scanlated so far but its rather lovely.

[006] Hetalia Axis Powers got cancelled long before I even thought about watching it - I heard that it was still going to be streamed online or something, so will it be possible to download and marathon the entire series later?

[007] Was watching Tales of Bah Sing Se (episode 2x15 of Avatar) where Iroh sings and its his son's birthday, and tears just started streaming down my face. That song ;_;

[008] I really wanna read a long original slash fic or a looooong manga, but everything feels like been there, done/tried that or will get to it, just not right now D:

[009] Isn't it fabulous how, as soon as your tummy is no longer upset, it goes into overdrive demanding food immediately? Woke up starving as soon as I could sleep all the way through the night.
