A nice rundown of the Avatar: TLA movie and its horrible suckitude. There is color coding.

Real yakuza review Yakuza 3.

If you're not reading the stories at [profile] 7thnight_smut, you really should be-- at least if you like Saiyuki. All the stories are locked, but membership is open. I've been working my way through them for days. (I confess my current favorite is the one where Goku's a chef and Sanzo's the world's bitchiest restaurant reviewer, although the space AU with the OT4 is fighting for top place.)

Hakkai/Gojyo fic! [Aug. 17th, 2010|09:59 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

More for [community profile] kink_bingo, prompt bondage (wrists/ankles). Futurefic, though that's not super-relevant here. The usual 'this fic contains Hakkai' sort of warnings apply. Thanks to [personal profile] emungere for betaing.

FIC: Touch, Kyou Kara Maoh, Gwendal/Yozak [Aug. 17th, 2010|12:57 pm]

Today is the first day of the rest of Yozak's life. He's not sure how he feels about it. For the [community profile] kink_bingo prompt "hand kink." [personal profile] threewalls is the best kind of beta; thanks again for catching me. Any remaining mistakes are entirely mine. (And thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the Unicode issue!)

So I was browsing around Hulu, as you do and....

Weiss Kreuz Gluhen is on Hulu. Oh, they call it Knight Hunters Eternity but you know what I mean.

I don't know how I feel about this, guys.

Thanks for the dune buggies over on LJ, [personal profile] ann89103 and mystery sender!

And now, I post the promised fic. Pairing as it says on the wrapper, rated R, for the kink-bingo theme "Obedience." BDSM and dominance themes, and a collar; it is clear all activity is consensual. (I hope.)

Could anyone turn around a short Shikamaru/Kankoru fic that stayed stubbornly gen despite my best efforts? It does have banter. Thank goodness for banter.

If I owe you anything I AM SORRY hopefully I will get it to you...soon. I hope.

We all knew this, but now it's official.

The Legend of Korra is a go!

"Mike and Bryan have imagined a compelling new story inspired by the Airbender mythology that they so brilliantly crafted when the TV series began," Johnson said. "This new avatar is not only a girl, but also hot-headed, independent and ready to take on the world."

She's a waterbender! She's going to learn from Aang's son Tenzin! WHOO HOO baby.

Waaaay back when, I bookmarked an essay on spiritual power and Buddhism (and possibly Shinto), basically a discussion of how anime priests can still be powerful as hell and be womanizers, gamblers, etc, where Western culture has more of a "Gawain and the Green Knight" lose your purity/lose your power thing going on. Miroku might have been an example.

Is this ringing any bells? To anyone? Bueller?

(In other words, even without this handy resource, my essay on Sanzo's quantum virginity for [community profile] kink_bingo is coming up on 500 words. And I haven't really talked about sex yet. Oops.)

I have fic up for the Racebending Revenge Ficathon! It's Urban Legends, a Supernatural fic with a racebended Bobby. The other stories look good too, so check it out!

Mad Men Yourself has returned, stronger than before! That is to say, with more stuff.

If you don't want to Mad Men yourself, you can live live as a slacker with the Scott Pilgrim avatar generator.

If you haven't read Matt Taibbi on Lara Logan yet, you really should. (Relates to journalism and the Rolling Stone article that got McChrystal fired.)

Vanity Fair answers 25 Questions You Might Have About the Last Airbender Movie, including "Is this the worst film you've seen that required your getting off of your couch, walking into an actual theater, and watching the entire thing?"

I know this is all over your flists by now. BUT.

Roger Ebert is a hero to us all.

"The Last Airbender" is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented.


Awesome.

ETA: A.O. Scott is also pretty awesome.

DAUGHTER OF ETA: Racebending runs down the changes. Not recommended if you have angina or rage issues.

[profile] kenilvort translated my story You'll Never Tan In This Town Again into Russian! How cool is that?

I read not a word of Russian, but IIRC, at least one of y'all do, so enjoy!

[profile] bigbangnitro has pushed its art deadline out a bit, so if you were thinking of vidding/mixing/creating and wanted more time, now you have it!

For those of you in the US, Black Books is up on Hulu. It is pretty amazing. You have to register because it is 'adult' but omg so worth it.

And I am currently messing around with some of the games at Sawbuck Gamer, a feature at the AV Club that features cheap and usually free games.

I had something else but I forgot it. I am woring on an FST, though. Whee, music!

The Dark Agenda fuck you Airbender movie Racebending Revenge Ficathon.

Re-write one or more white characters in the fandom(s) of your choice as chromatic/non-white/PoC, in a story of at least 500 words, with some acknowledgment of how the racial difference would make a difference to the story being told.

OH YES.

Speaking of which, [personal profile] ranalore recast Leverage here, and there is Dante Basco. Yes.

Also, Minekura has apparently decided the fourth wall is for wusses. I ♥ her.

Remix: NOW IT CAN BE REVEALED. [May. 31st, 2010|09:37 pm]

[personal profile] andmydog wrote my Remix, and it's here, so if you're one of those people who don't read fic until you've got a name attached, go read it.

And now, because I've wanted to talk about this story FOREVER, are this year's notes on Remix. My story is here. It's Goku and Sanzo, and love, and death.

Meta, or liner notes, or whatever, below the cut )
