All the boys who called their mothers on that day

» Breaking down and downloading Merlin.

» I have actually outlined my santa_smex fic after what was probably the most angst and whining ever over a story. And I even have a plan B if the first story tanks. Now I just have to, you know, write it.

» I may have been rewatching the subbed episodes of the PoT Chinese drama yet again and I've been thinking the main reason Hai Tang (Kaidoh) is so upset about Long Ma (Ryoma) joining the team is that up until now Hai Tang has been the indulged problem child of the team, with everyone paying constant attention to him to try to keep him out of trouble. And now here's a younger, more troublesome child who's better at tennis into the bargain. No doubt he's scared that Daddy Guo Guang (Tezuka) isn't going to love him any more. Personally, I don't think Daddy will ever stop loving Hai Tang, but it does explain a lot.

Seriously, I'm always surprised by the latitutde Guo Guang gives Hai Tang before he yanks him back. (With love, of course.) And even if Daddy is busy with other things, Zhen Zhi (Inui) will always be there for Hai Tang. With his sad, pretty eyes. No wonder I'm having so much trouble with my smex story -- all I can think about is their love triangle.

» In our PoT anime re-watch, the Boy and I are up to the training camp, which has so much cute stuff. Even the bear episode is now just amusing to me. I'd completely forgotten that it was Kaidoh who suggested they use their special moves against the bear. Damn, that was so cute. Also, I think Inui is paying way too much attention to training because he has completely failed to notice how much attention Momo is paying to Kaidoh. Another of my beloved triangles. ♥

Heh, now you've got me wanting to rewatch those training camp episodes, and I already watched them last week. The bear episode had me boggling because just when I'd resigned myself to the idea that it was just another dose of PoT crack, it turned out that it actually made some degree of sense after all. Confusing!

The first time I saw the bear episode it annoyed me a lot! But I've mellowed since then. :)

adsfja;dfa yes.

Zhen Zhi always has that slightly wibbly, soulful look. For some reason.

He does! It makes me want to squeeze him.


I keep wanting to watch more of the Chinese drama, but I know that as soon as I watch one episode I will want to make a sccap commentary post, so I am saving them for when I have more time. I like your theory about the drama triangle.

PoT keeps having the best fillers I have ever seen. Even when the plot is silly, there are always so many fun details with at least some of the characters. I have been rewatching fillers here and there these past weeks and they are so much LOVE.

Good luck with the writing!

Yeah, I know what you mean. I really want to be writing drama-based fic right now.

They really, really are! I always wished they'd had a few more filler eps.


um, you've been warned. just keep in mind it has nothing to do with the legend and that Arthur is probably shagging everyone and it is all good.

and I personally believe everyone will always love Kaidoh. although referring to Tezuka/ Guo Guang as Daddy is a a little creepy (accurate, but creepy). One day I will break down and watch this. Although are you getting it through torrent? jdramas and mysoju only have like 1 or 2 episodes available.

You even have Merlin icons already! Something about this makes me uneasy.

Really, I would never refer to Tezuka as Daddy, only Guo Guang. Because he SO IS Hai Tang's daddy.

There are two different sub groups. The 2 eps on d-addicts use the Chinese names and DVD source. The eps here (http://community.livejournal.com/dramapuri/1557.html) use Japanese names and LQ source, but they are up to 5 so far. I watch both, because I'm obsessed like that. I also have all the LQ raws, but I haven't watched more than a few past the subs so far.

Just the one. and because this is so obviously a "we just made out omg secret joke" icon.

Ah. cool. I will checkout the drampuri, although it seems confusing if they are using the Japanese names without hearing them.

I have almost finished one ep and I think I will like it very much.

I find that the Japanese names help work out who is who at first. But I prefer the Chinese names because the characterization is different enough that it makes it easier to differentiate.

ok. you've been warned. let me know when to expect bad fic.

also, did you change your layout????? where's kate????

I changed it about a month ago; it's optimized for iPhone viewing now, since I read my flist and such a lot on the bus. I was sorry to see Kate go though.

ack. this makes me very sad. you've had that layout as long as I've known you.


I don't have an Iphone.

The PoT Chinese Live Action makes me ship Tezuka/Kaidoh.

There, I've said it. :D

As well it should! They are so much love it makes my heart hurt.

Merlin! \o/ You'll have loads of fun watching that one, I'm sure of it!

Oh man, that bear episode was so entertaining (the tennis moves! the crazy man in the bear suit! the lack of logic!) -- I miss watching PoT fillers.

I'm not quite done the first ep but already I see what all the fuss is about. Such beautiful, sloppy, anachronistic crack!

See, this is why I keep re-watching them. :)


(It's basically where Smallville and Harry Potter had a big messy threeway w/ Arthurian Legend and splattered their slashtastic, anachronistic load all over its precious face)

And as slashtastic as the pilot is, hoooo boy, does it get gaytastiker. Just make sure to take off your logic and your historical accuracy caps and roll around in the silly, goofy, pretty eyefucking.

You are so right! I've only watched the first ep, but I'm sure I'll catch up soon. What a glorious mess!

There are SEVERAL moments so far where you're like ... i honestly thought this couldn't get much slashier but there you go. I was wrong. Wow.

Also, I think Inui is paying way too much attention to training because he has completely failed to notice how much attention Momo is paying to Kaidoh.

haha :)

I'm sure Fuji noticed, though. :)

Fuji sees everything ...

I think that the Chinese Tenipuri drama caters to many ships. If that's not an incentive to watch it, I don't know what is! ^_^
