Home again~! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground for having me again! ♥♥♥ Much [livejournal.com profile] tenipuri_fusion hilarity was had this morning! (Live RPing is the best. XD Especially when it involves lines like "Now get undressed" and "But Mommy promised", and you're having a conversation between Rikkai D1 and Kirihara. :D) And it was a wonderful coincidence that [livejournal.com profile] dystopiarcadia wasn't working, and [livejournal.com profile] yuki_scorpio was able to join us too! :D Always a pleasure to see you all! :-*** And thank you again, Liz, for the wonderful gifts you brought back! They certainly kept me occupied on the train back! ;D

Incidentally, it turns out that the weekend of the 1st of April is Nationals weekend! Which means several members of my household will be away in Edinburgh rolling dice! Which, I reckon, makes it a great time for Rikkaimyu party. ;D (Though if that's not possible due to work etc, we can always go a few days later cos that'll be the Easter holidays and someone's bound to be away somewhere. ;) Make a note, everyone~!

Anyone else disturbed by the fact that I currently have no less than 3 icons featuring Shibutani Subaru? *dies* *uses one anyway*

If there are any PoT fans on my friends list who haven't been dl'ing the OVA, I have to tell you - DL EP 7 RIGHT NOW. I'm so pleased they decided to include some of what always made the PoT anime so great - the pure, unadulterated crack. And ep 7 has the wrongest kind, in spades.

It's the beach volleyball chapter of the manga, made 1000 times more awesome. In a fearful way, of course, but then anything that features Ryuuzaki-sensei in a bikini (in colour and animation) was always going to send a chill into the hearts of men. But man. I think [livejournal.com profile] tehexile probably thought I was going to die.

The ep also features Echizen finally being rubbish at a sport, Inui's naked ass (and more o.O), a mysterious phenomenon that occurs when people try to say "tennis", and Tez looking actually very good! (How weird is it that the animation in this ep didn't seem nearly as bad as the previous ones? XD)

Most amazing thing I've seen in a very, very long time!

Title: Derelict
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: D1
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for offscreen sex.
Notes: Haha, I started this one at Squeefest, based on the prompt object of a piece of broken glass. I guessed I might as well post it, seeing as I'd done it. The place is entirely based on somewhere me and Brendan used to go - a abandoned hamlet called Hades. *grin*

Derelict )
diamondlife: (That's hot - iconcentration)
Note to self: create one-woman fandom re: Gakuen Heaven. So much eye-candy, so little lovin'. WHERE'S THE FLUFF, PEOPLE?

...Which reminds me, I never did get that Chinese torrent for that Angel's Feather OVA. I'm sure Aarinfantasy will be picking it up, anyway...

I'm also really looking forward to seeing the rest of Higa in the PoT OVA, because I'd forgotten how much I like them. Really hope people start producing more fic and might even feel more inspired to do my own, cos I need fandom to solidify my own ideas!.

Yay for sunshine, finally!! *fingers crossed for weekend...*
diamondlife: (SanaYuki - caffeineaddict)
I was watching ep 10 of Keroro Gunsou earlier - the whole ep is a Gundam parody, but one moment made me howl with laughter: Ninmu - kanryou!" XD XD XD It made me feel kind of proud! Not least because I actually got the reference, and it was something I was a part of - made me feel all fuzzy inside. ^_~

Underripe avocado is, like, the bitterest substance known to man. XP I've had those damn avocadoes a week and they were still like rocks! >:E

Finally got Sanada's album (thank you [livejournal.com profile] pos_praiser_01!) and it's pretty good, actually! I keep listening to the SanaYuki duet, natch, but it's really cool and funky! ♥ Sanada's seiyuu does *not* have the best voice in PoT, but he gives it a good go, bless 'im.

Ack, I better go to bed! ^^' I hate the thought of not getting enough sleep - makes me paranoid...
diamondlife: (We're all Yuki's bitches - tehiconz)
Arghsotired. x_o I don't think this is natural! At least I don't feel as bad as I did yesterday, though today was probably the worst day I've had work-wise since I started at Burngreave. Also, it was hot. I love it when it's hot, but it was raining when I set off for work, so I was wearing trousers and a jacket. And being in an office while you can see the sun shining outside is never cheering. >.o

I also attempted to bring [livejournal.com profile] zalia to the yellow side. :3 Work will recommence in the near future, I'm sure! There's no escape... ;)

Hope all you British people went and voted today! ;)

Still working on drabbles. Thank you for your kind comments on my D1 one! Will reply individually, uh, later. For now, I'm crawling off to bed.
diamondlife: (Part of Me - shinigamitabris)
OK, first of the meme-drabbles here! This one is for [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground - D1 still rules my little yellow heart. ♥ It's actually 200 words, so call it a double-drabble. I had to do, like, maths-thinking for this, so forgive me if I've overlooked anything in that department. *cough* I could make a lot more increasingly geeky comments, but me an' [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire are going out to find food, so I shall refrain. ^_~

Enjoy, and please comment if you do! :)

D12? Well, 2+8=10 )

Poll-meme blatantly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] yukimura! (I missed out Jousei because, well, it's Jousei! I ain't no ski dwarf!)

[Poll #714999]

(PLease take a moment to tell me why in comments, if you can! :)

Also, [livejournal.com profile] athousandwinds tagged me for a meme:

Write a little paragraph about your name, why you chose it, what it means to you, etc.

Ahh, now, gather round, children, and hear the ancient myth of How the Elyndys Got its Name! It was back in early 2001, when I was first delving into GW fandom. I'd discovered MLs, and needed a Yahoo ID so I could join them. My old nick, Glitternova, was taken (probably by me at a previous date, but I had no idea of the password) so I decided to go for something new. Now, at the time I was writing a novel. Tragically enough, it was half-inspired by DBZ, because I used to watch it at the time. (I'll defend myself by saying it didn't really bear any resemblance to it; was just inspired by it. Yes.) The hero was called Adel; the slightly morally-ambiguous one was Corolla; the evil and undoubtedly gay one was Elyndys.

So I tried the name "elyndys" in Yahoo. Unsurprisingly, for a name I'd made up, it wasn't taken, and thus, history was made. :3 (Incidentally, you pronounce it "il-in-dis"

What would you change your name to, if you were changing it?

lily_of_the_valley; [livejournal.com profile] star_platinum; [livejournal.com profile] pavo_humilde. Something shiny/flowery/in-jokey.

What is your favorite username? Why?

[livejournal.com profile] sublimeparadigm is a good one - I love things that rhyme!

Now, tag five other unfortunates whose usernames you would like to hear about:

[livejournal.com profile] kashewmoo, [livejournal.com profile] spinfrog, [livejournal.com profile] fyredra, [livejournal.com profile] syuria and [livejournal.com profile] sublimeparadigm. ^_^
(I was surprised how many I already know the origins of! Like [livejournal.com profile] ninjaiguana and [livejournal.com profile] disography ;)

My throat feels kind of yacky. >.o But I smell like bubblegum, cos I had a bath with a Lush crumbly-thing in it, so that's nice. :3
diamondlife: (That's hot - iconcentration)
Hey, what's with all the good Hyotei fic today? o.o I don't read as much for PoT as I used to, but I'm glad I idly clicked on some fics - excellent OshiGaku from [livejournal.com profile] jellypond here and from [livejournal.com profile] akahannah here, and also a very nice Higa story (again by [livejournal.com profile] jellypond) here. Now gotta find enough brain power to leave feedback.

I think the fear's come back - joy, eh? )

Which reminds me - got to go to the gym this weekend! Not been for yonks. Wanna write too - get all the important scenes done with, then starting filling in the gaps. Well done, brain, for waiting till I've written 3500 words to let me know I need to write in at least one more character and associated plot-line... ^^'

White Day bromides!

Is it just me, or is this one really quite freaky? o.O'
diamondlife: (We're all Yuki's bitches - tehiconz)
Hmm, funny how one appearence from Yukimura can suddenly start the fandom squeeing again! And if they're not squeeing, they are at least talking about it. I'll be honest, though, that is the sort of thing I've been waiting for - I want to know more about the period after Yukimura came out of hospital and before the Nationals. I want to *know* how cool he is, instead of just thinking it anyway! Hey yeah, I sold my soul to the yellow side, what of it? Plus, I kind of liked seeing Atobe getting his ass kicked, even if it was only very briefly. *cough*

I also dl'ed the PoT movie, subbed, so if anyone fancies that this weekend, there can be dinos, dinos for all! >D Now, did I dream it or did someone do the Atobe mini-movie already? I've only seen it raw, but that would be awesome, to see it with subs. *snerk*

Randomly uploaded some things for someone last night, so if, by any chance, you want a copy of Saiyuki Reload 4, grab it here! It has Gojyo and Hakkai's Burial arc in it, which is worth reading anyway, even if you haven't read the rest of Reload; heck, it's worth reading if you don't know anything about Saiyuki, because, to me, Burial arc art is *the* pinnacle of the whole manga, in terms of drawing. :9 (Plus, youkai Hakkai! And the implication of umbrellas being used as a lethal weapon!! And gaaah *descends into rabid 585-squeeing* That's the best advert I can give!) That's not even to mention Goku's Burial arc, and we all know chibi Goku is *the* cutest thing ever. I also put up chapters 9-18 of Gaiden, though it is missing the mysterious "second" chapter 15. *headdesk* One of these days I'm going to be reduced to begging, I know it. I also need the little summer story Minekura did last year. The translation made it sound so cute!

Hmm, I could use more sleep. x_o Should I be brave and resist..? Heh, I don't have much incentive. *crawls back to bed*
diamondlife: (V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! - bucket_shot)
Ahh, so much entertainment recently! The main thing, which I spent most of Thursday afternoon enjoying, was [livejournal.com profile] xenium's RajiPuri translations. They're either hilarious, or completely wrong and brain-breaking. Probably, like all the best things, they're "a little of column A, and a little of column B". I ain't complaining, cos many of them brought me great joy. Especially the infamous "Saru~, gorilla, chimpanzee!" (oh, so many associations!), but I also loved anything featuring Inui. (Him scamming Renji was most entertaining.) Oh, I could go on, but go see for yourselves. (Except [livejournal.com profile] yukimura. Don't listen to anything that says it has Tez in it. You might cry. ^^' [livejournal.com profile] assyrian might also want to heed this warning.)

Then, there was Hakkai sleeping with his eyes open and laughing evilly in his sleep. o.o (In fact, going 'nfufu'. ;) It's a scary mental image, and even Sanzo is afraid. XD

There's also more batsmut, but I only know this by stalking. *cough* And I still need Gojyo/Hakkai icons, damnit! (And, for that matter, more friends who care about the pairing and can pimp/write me stuff. ^^;;)

Tenimyu partyage last night was much, much fun! :D I hope there weren't too many lingering feelings of fear, [livejournal.com profile] sou_chan! ^^;; Can't wait for the sequel - H0MYU PARTY tomorrow!!!!! It's giving me an ETA of an hour and a half, currently. Sweeeeet.

Earlier today, I also got to see Genius 293, too, after wondering whether I'd missed it! It was really nice, too - that lovely double-page GP montage! And some really nice shots of them too. Especially this one, despite Ooishi's terrible hat. XD Eiji looks great, though! Still don't know whether they'll win or not. x_o

I also watched ES21 ep 26 earlier, too, which seemed very short, somehow. ^^' I've really enjoyed these last few eps, actually - I like the way they don't drag things out. *cough*

The only downer is, I think I may have some kind of very mild lurgi, just in time to start work, yay. -_- My nose hurts, on the inside, just on the right hand side, and my throat is a little bit icky too. Bah! I shall infect those customers, yay.

And now I have to go to bed! ;_; For I must be up at the unheard-of 9.30, in order to be at work for 10.30. ^_~ Wish me luck! ^^'
diamondlife: (Mine - peach_ponta)
*stabs fic* I wrote 1300 words last night this morning, and I still feel like I'm no nearer the end! *dies* I'm positive it sucks too, so if by some miracle I get it finished tonight, I hope I'm allowed to redraft it before I post it... ^^'

Look, Aika-baby! You got recced! ^_~

In case any PoT people on my list haven't seen it, [livejournal.com profile] leviosa8 posted pics from the new calendar today. I know a lot of more, uh, tradtional fans might cringe at some of the pics, but there's a secret part of me that finds Rikkai singing karaoke cute. Ironically, my two favourite pics are of teams I don't really care for that much, Hyotei and St Rudolph. Hyotei all look so mate-y and, well, normal! It's a nice picture. In the post, there's also pics from the ES21 calendar as well, which are nice, but not very inventive - I guess it's just the first year the anime's been around, they don't want to put too much crack into it yet. XD Thanks [livejournal.com profile] zerotwofan for the link! :)

My corruption of my body clock continues. -_- Bah. At least I'm seeing the sun *before* I go to bed... I keep thinking I should be outside making the most of the clear-skies-not-raining-ness, but then I remember that it's probably about 2 degrees out there, so staying put is good as well. ^^'

Still squiddling over Gaiden too. "Gekai* no sakura no shita de aou." *cries* Note to self: stalk certain people who translate things. Yes.

*"gekai" here is the only reading that makes sense, though I'm not entirely certain it's... appropriate. ^^;; I need that thing that writes in kanji on my computer. -_- That'd make it look, like, better. ...Oh, great, now I appear to have made something language-related on my taskbar disappear, and all I clicked was "OK". Bah!
diamondlife: (Blue - koushi)
KKM fans really should check out this post of drama CD tracks. I dl'ed the Ryan/KG ones just for crack's sake, and it's fantastic! If you've ever wanted to hear Namikawa Daisuke having a conversation with a family of bears, go dl track 4! XD That track also has the most adorable Wolfram and Conrad moment at the end. Wolfram sounds so sweet and scared, and tries to cover it in the cutest way. ♥

I have eps 54 and 55 of KKM to watch, but somehow I'm not that eager - I still love the series, but ever since it deviated from the novels I can't stop the nagging feeling of wondering what I'm missing. I *know* I've seen summaries of novels at various places, but I think they were mainly over at the ConYuu comm, which I, er, left cos of my growing distaste for the pairing. #^^# If anyone could help me out with links, at all, I'd be hugely grateful! Aside from, when I was in the Space Centre the other day, I actually saw a novel version of... something, so it kind of fills me with hope that maybe more manga-related novels will be translated in future - we can only hope! I really want to know what "actually" happens in the story. I hate being a manga (or, in this case, novel) snob, but in some cases - KKM being one - it really makes a difference. Not like PoT, where anime and manga canon can often quite happily sit alongside each other - personally I have no problem "believing" in Jr Senbatsu, or the training camp with Hyotei, and also the beach trip with Rokkaku - I think all those things can have happened, even though they don't appear in both versions of canon. (Of course, Midoriyama is where the problems *really* set in. In most cases of other, smaller differences, I choose the better version of what happened, lol - for example, I "believe" in the anime version of Fuji vs Kirihara, cos I much prefer it [if you ask me why, I'll be happy to tell you!]; but manga version of the D1 vs. GP match, cos the anime version is just a bit boring. And has golf in it. *dies*)

All of this leaves me with a difficulty when it comes to Saiyuki - do I believe in Homura? I've not seen his anime eps, so right now I'd probably have to say no. I have seen the special little manga chapter Minekura drew featuring him, and I know what he is, but I don't know much about how he's meant to fit into the world and story according to Minekura. @_@ I really want to see the Gaiden-bits of the anime, though, cos I adore Gaiden and may well cry at the end of it.

And, um, that's about as much as I have to say on the topic of adaptations of manga. ^^' Dunno how much sense it made, lol, but I'm always interested to hear what other people think about anime that have been adapted from manga. (I could have mentioned ParaKiss, but I'll save that for another day. :)
diamondlife: (How do I feel? - annaoni)
*leaps on Genius 289* Yay Silver Pair! And I reckon they'll win, too, to give maximum "suspense" before Seigaku's obvious victory. I feel dim though for not actually realising who their opponents will be. *dies*

Does old-people fic creep anyone else out slightly? I dunno, there's something about making young anime guys 40+ that I find slightly distasteful. Maybe I'm just prejudiced. *cough*

Now all-nighter ramblings )

HAHAHA wonder if they'd show any PoT at the all-nighter? FEEL THE IRONY OF ME SAYING THIS. *winks at certain persons* ;)
diamondlife: (We know what killed them - darkeyedwolf)
...Konomi, you just don't care anymore, do you? *regards Genius 288 with bemusement* I guess after 6 years you get sick of drawing tennis matches. Ah well, I don't really mind missing out on them if we get some cool non-tennis-y stuff. Especially with the inevitable Rikkai match coming up... we better get some bloody good Yukimura backstory! :9

Also, I love GALS! The manga's a bit different to the anime, but only in the little stories - the important ones are the same, and the ones in the anime are the same sort of thing. Yuya ♥! ;_; It's just a fluffy high school story where nothing of much really happens, but I love the characters, and het romance has never seemed so appealing! I like Rei and Aya, though it's completely not what I expected to happen. ^^' The translation's pretty good, too - they've done very well with the puns, and they've kept quite a bit of the Japanese slang intact too, which is nice to see.

...And now I'm going to stop rambling about something no-one knows anything about, lol, and say eeeee~! Get this translation of Nagisa no Invitation! *snibble* So cute! I personally can't vouch for its accuracy, and she hasn't posted the kanji, but whatever. It made my fangirl heart happy!

Ooo Densha Otoko 10 too! I don't know if I can wait for you, [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire... @_@
diamondlife: (Burning love - xichigox)
I OWN. Two birds - one stone - get in! This was done for, aha, both the 20 Things Meme that's spread through PoT fandom like wildfire, and good for it, because the pieces have been top-notch; and also [livejournal.com profile] 30_romances theme no. 8: "Analysis; collection", because I think it fits raaaather too nicely. :3 Hope it's OK with you, [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire!

As if you wouldn't guess, being as how this is me - this is a shonen ai fic, featuring the wonderfully under-written-for pairing of TakaFuji. W007, go me! Please ignore my blatantly shoddy research for no. 7, and the fact that the timeline is really, really messed up. *cough*

Dear [livejournal.com profile] pot_challenge

Please put me out of my misery. @_@


Dear producers of BECK,

Episode 5 is the cheapest thing I've ever seen, and I've seen Tenimyu 2. And also, that song they sing constantly in that ep is so terribly, burningly bad, in many ways.

Here's to ep 6.

Ooo! Cluster Edge should be down! *winks at [livejournal.com profile] laliho* Watch this space... [Edit] Verdict on Cluster Edge: pleasingly pretty. Will be dl'ing the next ep, in a casual kinda way, if only to see the rest of the characters. I want Saiga Mitsuki and, uh, Oshitari!
diamondlife: (Cakeulent - pos_praiser_01)
I just put chocolate sauce on a banana and my housemates watched as I ate it. Wish I could've nicked some of the ice cream as well, though...

Random random )

Going to try writing some more [livejournal.com profile] top_cagnotte now. Also, updated one of my RP journals - man, I have some fun with Ryou, even if he doesn't have a lot of people to talk to. XD
diamondlife: (Mine - peach_ponta)
On re-reading my 150 words of fic, lol, they didn't suck too hard. And I did that thing, where I went Right, close down LJ, close down Gmail, close down various fic pages, yes yes yes - leave Word till last, Oh, I'll just do a bit more... so I added an extra 300 words, which was nice. I'm quite happy with how the structure is presenting itself. *nods* Yes.

...Of course, this was all after several hours of going "I'll just read one more fic..." I think I've had smut withdrawal through being in PoT fandom (WHERE ARE THE LEMONS, PEOPLE???), so I've been stocking up by cheating on it with Saiyuki. >:9 Oh, you gotta love these four-year-old fandoms. Plenty to go at there. *grin*

I've got to go see that Kinky Boots film that's out atm. Any film that has a big black guy in drag has got to be at least worth the investment. Cf, To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. I'm also sure it's based on a true story - I'm sure I randomly saw a documentary on TV about it a while back...

Rargh, bed. z_z

[Edit] Hahar, did I go to bed? Did I buggery! But I have written another 200 words. *preens*

This edit was also to add that I'm loving Crack Week over at Match Point. XD I have the fear, but it's hilarious.

Also, don't drink the pine beer. It's... indescribable. o.O;;
