p-peach pit are you fucking serious

branewurms: (Mononoke - Odajima-mama)

did Ikuto and Amu seriously just double-team Tadase by ice-cream proxy

or did I dream that

what the hell is this I can't even write porn of it THEY ARE CHILDREN

("Amu, you take that side." AHHHHHHHH WHAT)

eta: "It seems like a tight fit. Will it go in?" S-SOB WHY
branewurms: (Mushishi - what)
So. Shugo Chara. I just have one question. Why the catboy? Seriously, why does no one ever notice that Ikuto's the only one with a goddamn animal person for a guardian character? Why does no one ever ponder upon the strangeness of this? And, I mean, your guardian character is supposed to represent who you dream to be, right? Why does no one ever ask, "So Ikuto, why exactly is your character a cat boy? This means that your grand dream is to become a... a cat boy? Really? Really?"

I mean, what, is this boy's dream to be fujoshi-bait? He wants to be in PORN? I CANNOT FATHOM WHY THIS BOY TURNS INTO A CATBOY.

Dave: He wants to be in porn, and yet he doesn't have any tentacles?

Me: ...Not that kind of porn, Dave.

Dave: There are only two kinds of people in manga porn. Those that have tentacles, and those that the tentacles have.

Me: Dude. He's a catboy. Do you know what happens to catboys in manga porn?

Dave: So he's one of those that tentacles have.

l-lol Peach Pit.

Also, I was reading the spoilers on Wikipedia earlier. W...WHAT. GOOD CHRIST PEACH PIT, THIS IS A KID'S SERIES. I never fail to be astounded at the difference between what Americans consider appropriate for children and what Japanese people consider appropriate for children.

I mean, I shouldn't be surprised. It's Peach Pit! BUT. KID'S SHOW.

Canaan ep 6:

Liang Ji is a fucking lunatic, and the US presidency suddenly got about 9203840x more hilarious! Seriously, that episode was on so much crack, I don't even know. I was dying of laughter the whole way through. The idea of our President running around screaming "Love and peace!" in a Japanese accent is just what I needed in my life.

But! Canaan comes to her precious Maria's rescue! And Liang Ji has a total maniacal meltdown because her ~beloved sister~ doesn't love her! GAY. ♥

Canaan ep 7:

I trust no words are needed here.

Canaan ep 8:

Could not have been any gayer if they suddenly started in with the heavy makeouts. I am pretty sure that was yuri-speak for "HAY WE SHOULD GET MARRIED!"

branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - Raven is Displeased)







spoilers! )

I would like to note that this chapter is doing nothing to discourage me from my nasty violent Gil/Break tendencies. In fact, it almost seems to be actively trying to encourage them. I mean seriously wtf there was even strangulation. (B-Break. Stop reading my fanfic, honey, it's creepy.) Oh my god that entire scene was so hot, I can't even. I just. FFFNNNGGG.

b-brb writing porn of it

branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - cock goes here)




PH 20: The episode in which Alice and Gil's voice actors make us wonder if they ACTUALLY GOT DRUNK for their parts, Sharon is a huge lesbian for Alice, Oz makes Gil his bitch, Sharon makes PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE her bitch, Alice cackles over her superiority while topless, and Alice and Gil's romantic rivalry is brought out into the light.

Also the episode in which Gil out-moes Alice and Sharon combined - HELL, THE ENTIRE CAST COMBINED.


okay I

I need a minute


Okay, okay, I think I. I'm okay now. In other good news, apparently they are doing the Break's backstory bit! I was seriously worried we were about to go into bizarre filler land since there's only a few episodes left, but there goes Barma in the preview, being his faaaaabulous self. Awesomesauce. :|d

tentaclessssssss WHY

branewurms: (what)
The porn_tree challenge is moving kinda slow, guys! Come on, don't be shy, leave some prompts! You can totally leave prompts without writing for any of them! The more prompts there are, the more chances someone will be inspired to write something, right? :D?

(And again, if you don't have a DW account, feel free to post anon or sign in with your lj ID through Open ID.)


So I was totally trying to write for a couple of the Gil prompts y'all gave me the other day. REALLY! And then I wrote a few sentences of something involving Gil and Break. Again.

And then there were tentacles.

I. I don't even know, okay. SOB.

Title: The Horrible Horror from the Abyss!
Fandom: Pandora Hearts
Rating: PG-13-ish
Summary: Break. Gil. Tentacles. Takes place soon after Gil acquires Raven. Not really a pairing fic, but Break's perving on Gil a bit.

>> 'I was just thinking,' says Break, considering. 'This is a good look for you.'


OH! And something I have been meaning to link to for a;lskdfj;al I DON'T EVEN KNOW. [livejournal.com profile] catatonic_cats drew crime boss lady and lady ninja butler! Man, that is so hot I don't even. FFFFFFNG.

Conclusion: I am horrible, also not sane

  • Aug. 6th, 2009 at 8:22 AM
branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - Raven is Displeased)
Title: Mutual Exchange
Fandom: Pandora Hearts
Pairing: Gil/Break
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Takes place maybe two or three years before Oz returns from the Abyss. Gil and Break have an... arrangement.
WARNING: Neither safe nor sane (although on the tame side, as unsafe, insane sex goes), but it is consensual. (Although there are a couple of places that are a bit dubious.) Also I am a horrible person and this is nasty and depressing.

>> 'Isn't it obvious?' says Break. 'I'm making an offer. Another mutual exchange.'

Okay so, I had so much fun writing this. It's 5400 words of PWP. For a pairing I don't even ship. I never write fanfic this long! And I never actually enjoy writing! And it is nasty and depressing and I was all "weeeeeeee!"


I also don't know why they have an obsession with strangling each other, but as [livejournal.com profile] kaura_nighthawk pointed out, that's probably the part that actually makes sense. XD;


SO! I guess I should do another [community profile] porn_tree challenge soon. I was supposed to do one in July but got distracted. Hmm.

In the meantime, how about give me Gil prompts! Anything with Gil, gen, in a pairing, porny, whatever. (There are some pairings I'm pretty unlikely to write - Vincent/Gil, for instance - but you're welcome to try me with anything.)

[profile] socchan is looking for suggestions for Misogynist Yaoi Fangirl bingo! She's already got such classics as "But she's getting in the way of their love!" and "Yaoi is better because you don't have to deal with sexism" - if you've got any she seems to have missed, let her know!

Surprise tits

branewurms: (Kaiba - PORN)
There were tits in my BL manga tonight! In two of them! What!

Dave: I'm saddened that you're displeased by tits.

Me: I'm not displeased by tits! Why would I be displeased by tits! I was merely surprised by tits!

Anyway, this is the first time I've gone on a BL reading spree in half of forever and eh.

I wish fantasy BL wasn't such a rare beast. (And I wish fantasy yuri wasn't an even rarer one.) Also, I wish there were actual threesomes in manga like, ever. (Well, in an actual relationship, not just screwing.) I don't care if it's porn or not, I don't care about the distribution of males and females, ANYTHING WOULD DO, FOR GOD'S SAKE, WHY IS THIS SO HARD.

If you have any fantasy BL or fantasy yuri recs, please share! I know of the big ones, probably (Crimson Spell and Kanazuki no Miko and the like), and I know a few lesser known ones, but afaik there just aren't all that many.
branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - OT3)
Pandora Hearts ep 15:




That was absolutely the cutest thing I have ever seen, horrible art and all! WHY, WHY ARE THEY SO ADORABLE, I CAN'T STAND IT.

I love how they played out the falling scene, too. Raven's all, "D: SHIT," while Oz just goes ":D:D:D" at him because he knows Raven's going to catch them. It was hilarious and heartwarming all at once and oh, Raven, you poor boy, it is your lot in life to be abused. (Come to think of it, Gil using himself as a cushion for those two must have been incredibly painful, considering his wounds...)

And wow, they really... really gay-ified that scene with Raven and Oz. That was seriously um. Wow. Wow, guys.

'Why do those two men look like they want to kiss each other?' )

Just, WOW. I uh guess they thought the Oz/Alice scene of epic OTP needed some balance or something? Well, whatever, you won't hear me complaining.

(I have to say, though, I completely burst out laughing at mega!Cheshire's T.T face.)


A Post of Things

  • Jul. 3rd, 2009 at 5:21 AM
branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - Jack)
Um. I was trying to delete the private version of this post that I had posted earlier because I was adding a little at the time as I did other things, and instead deleted the public one. Well, at least I only deleted one comment? OOPS.


A List of Things:

- Okay, so, Japan, this is what I want from you: a manga/anime with a bad-ass, sexy lady-boss of a criminal organization (ala Benika of Kurenai or Balalaika of Black Lagoon) who has an unquestioningly loyal lady NINJA BUTLER who is dark and cold and stoic, + tons of subtext. Is this really so hard? It doesn't even have to be explicitly girl-love! Just give me the goddamn lady ninja butler, okay. Why does this not already exist, why.

I, I need a lady ninja butler. In a crisp suit. With a cravat. Serving tea and bashing people's heads in. Being all cold and emotionless until something dire happens involving lady-boss and her stony veneer cracks and she becomes DISTRAUGHT and ANGRY and unbearably hot. Ffffnggg please give me this I beg of you.

- l-lol UDDUP ch. 69. Could we maybe have the ladies' motivational angst occasionally relate to something other than childbearing and child-rearing? I mean, you know, ladies sometimes want other things out of their lives. Shocking, I know.

- Re: Melancholy of Haruhi S2 ep 3: lol Koizumi, you will never not be gay.

- Pandora Hearts ep 14! FLAILING FOREVER BRB.

So, as usual, they left out some details that irritated me. I was okay with them leaving out Vincent playing with the corpses, because really, is it any surprise they weren't willing to show a little boy playing with intestines and stabbing out the eyes of corpses on TV. I was irritated that they left out Raven passing out into Jack's arms, but that was mainly just my fangirl talking. (Come on, that was slkf;jals adorable.)

But what really annoyed me was a much tinier omission; Raven's hurt/shocked expression when Oz is talking about how important Alice is to him. Instead he just gives this vaguely surprised sounding, "Oz..." I mean, that might be a tiny thing, but I felt like that expression was important! It really told you a lot about what was going on in Raven's head! It tells you beyond any doubt that his anger at Alice is about more than just protecting Oz! There's the angle that he probably wants to be that special to Oz, and the realization that he can't protect Oz in this situation because Oz isn't going to let him, and if he can't protect Oz, then what's he supposed to do? And also probably the realization that if he does anything to get rid of Alice at this point, Oz is probably going to hate him. And maybe I'm nitpicking here but I just feel like it was... important, okay.

But EVEN SO, this episode. Nearly made me explode. O god.

Yuki Kajiura, why is your music so gorgeous? And Break, why is your sadomasochism so appealing? And Daisuke Ono, why is your voice so irresistible? And Jack, why -

Okay, you're right, no need to ask. It's Jack.

Next week! Oz goes nuts! I AM SO STOKED.

- I wrote things! Gasp. For the PH kink meme.

Title: The Drunken Cliche Fic of Ridiculous Length
Fandom: Pandora Hearts
Pairing: Oz/Raven
Rating: NC-17 (for sexual content)
Comments: Quite possibly contains as many cliches as can fit into one single fic.

>> 'Gil, stop, there's no fire! You can't take off your clothes here!'

Title: Gunplay
Fandom: Pandora Hearts
Pairing: Oz/Raven
Rating: PG-13
Warning: Contains flagrant molestation mishandling of a gun.

>> Boys liked guns, he reasoned, but wasn't this a little excessive?

branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - YEY)

I keep thinking that Vassalord can't possibly get any more porn-like without actually turning into porn! And I keep being wrong.

I just. I can't even. FNNNNGGG.

Also apparently Pandora Hearts ch 37 is out. SCREAM. If raws do not appear somewhere soon I may die.
branewurms: (Pandora Hearts - SHOCKU)
I swear to Christ, this entire arc of Zombie Loan exists expressly so that Peach Pit could have an excuse to draw Shito holding down Chika bound and gagged.

This has got to be the most sexually confused manga I have ever read. In the space of a few pages we see how girl A likes girl B, and is jealous because she thinks girl B likes boy C! But probably girl A also likes boys A and B! And boys A and B think that girl A likes boy C, and ARE ALSO INCREDIBLY JEALOUS. And then boys A and B proceed to have NOT-AT-ALL HOMOEROTIC BONDING TIMES with one another.

(And that's not even touching on the not-at-all homoerotic BONDAGE times depicted above! Nor the time boy B tells boy A "You're my property!")

Basically everyone likes everyone and no one is admitting it.

desire to commit fandom atrocities rising

Am suffering from vague inclinations to write thinly disguised Raven/Oz cheesy vampire AU porn for SSBB. Am a horrible person. Send help ASAP.

Am also suffering from vague inclinations to write Alice/Raven fic. Am a horrible person. Send help ASAP.

(At least the Alice/Raven one seems impossible enough that I don't think I can write it.)

Chapters 12 and 13 of Pandora Hearts scanlated. I love how Break is like, "You are a freaky obsessed homo, aren't you," and Raven is like, "Yeah, sure, whatever."

Oh, and happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and caretaker-type-peoples reading! You guys rock. \o/

Last missing chapter translated, SQUEE

  • May. 4th, 2009 at 2:22 PM
branewurms: (Default)
And I totally meant to crosspost that post last night but oh well, I was half asleep.

Someone did a translation for the last untranslated chapter of Pandora Hearts, 33: Echo of Noise. LIEK WHAO DUDES. And here I was thinking that Raven was the closest thing approximating sane in this manga. Oh h-honey. Not even Vincent could be any gayer than you.


Mild spoiler, although only one person I know of has actually read this far so is anyone actually going to click on this?! )

I think that leaves Oz as the sanest currently important character in this thing, and that's just scary.
