Since I haven't touched this since 7/25 ... yeah, let's call it abandoned. Also, I am proud of myself for having tried writing comedy in 2004, but prouder of the scenes which are actually funny. Slapstick is clearly not my metier.

Also, this is anime!Fujisaki. Manga!Fujisaki is just Tohma, Jr. and like Tohma, Sr. he gives me the creeps.

Post-series.

... because next week I regroup, but this week escapism is my friend.

Distraction flashfic (from [livejournal.com profile] wordsofastory this time around)

Request a drabble flashfic in any fandom you think I might be reasonably familiar with. Pairing & situation of your choice, though I reserve the right to make the pairing nonromantic if I don't think I can pull the romance off.

First of all, there was an excellent anime vid show at Vividcon. I loved it. I will be writing it up later. This is not about that show. This is about the anime vid show that wasn't.

I swear I did try to google it, but I couldn't find the right search terms. Four not entirely unrelated questions:


  1. Do people have birthday parties with their friends in Japan, a la Western tradition (drinking, presents, etc.), or is it just the more formal dressing up and visiting shrines thing?
  2. Are birthdays determined by the Japanese or Western calendar?
  3. How would you take care of academics for a kid with theater/music job? I.e., in the U.S. child actors with regular jobs usually end up with private tutors and take standardized exams; is there a Japanese equivalent? Or do kids just drop high school if they're over 14, since it's optional?
  4. Where would one post Gravitation fic?

Oh my goodness, it's a really good Gravitation vid.  One does exist! I'm so relieved. I mean "Can't Make It."  "Shuichi's Back" is cute, too--I'm not made of stone; I can't resist a vid to "The Cat Came Back." But it's "Can't Make It" that really does it for me. I wasn't convinced by the credits scene, then the umbrellas shot caught me, then I was afraid the vidder was going to try to fill an entire vid with Shuichi insecurity, which would be just several minutes too much, but there's a POV switch and it all works. This is a shipper vid -- but it's a smart shipper vid. Oh, I'm so pleased. More later.

I was so delighted some of you actually signed up to read this (including, to be honest, people I thought just had dead journals) that I was planning to put real content here this morning. So I put on my current vid obsession, and started taking notes, and an hour later it was time to go to work and I had a 1500 words of notes and 0 words of coherency or timestamps. At some point, I will remember that it's helpful to note down timestamps and not just lyric phrases before I want to refer back to the previous section of the vid. Or I will give up, because this vid review thing is hard. Now I remember why I never do it and am just a bandwidth-hogging air-wasting parasite on good vidders everywhere.

As a placeholder, I'll copy a bunch of vid recs out of an email I sent someone last week.

Finding Anime Vids )

This is a quick list of vids I plan to cover in more detail later, available from sites other than AMV, with notes on whether they're accessible to people who haven't watched the show:

Starherd, Possession (Yami No Matsuei) )

Bonibaru, Shape of My Heart and Momentum (Yami No Matsuei) )

Witch Hunter Robin credit sequence )

WickedAmp, multiple )

Sephiroth, Gravity of Love (Revolutionary Girl Utena) )

Myka, Justify My Love and Betrayal )
