Title: A Good Man Is Hard To Find
[1][2][3][4]
Characters & Pairings: Kotetsu/Barnaby, some Kotetsu/Tomoe, + ensemble (notably featuring Kaede, Agnes, Nathan, Karina, Antonio)
Rating: hard R
Summary: The city was complicated and dangerous, everything shrouded in facades, and maybe it was no wonder someone like Barnaby who'd never known anywhere else would be so reluctant to trust anyone. Still Kotetsu could imagine nothing lonelier than the childhood he'd spent in a safer and simpler place.

sorrow found me when i was young / sorrow waited, sorrow won / i live in a city sorrow built / 'cause i don't want to get over youCollapse )

Notes: Um...Given the amount of certain kinds of references and descriptions especially in this chapter, at this point it might be good for me to mention, apologetically, that I have way too much fun with taking the "NC 1978" thing pretty seriously as a point of reference for the culture of the T&B universe. (I personally don't think it's fitting to have any real-life cultural references in fic for this fandom, but well...I kind of pushed it with this chapter. LOL.)

i'm just a soul whose intentions are goodCollapse )

Notes: In which my personal canon of what Kotetsu/Tomoe were like as a couple contradicts the popular model in a bajillion ways and I regret nothing. XD Chapter title from "Rocket Man" by Elton John.

I was in need of help, heading to blackout / somehow got lost into the city, lost into the night / 'til someone told me, run on in here / before somebody blows your goddamn brains outCollapse )

Ridiculously excited for this series now.



All the character designs that were shown at Comic-Con look awesome, too. I love that Korra's firebender friend is named in honor of Mako. :') And that he and her earthbender companion are brothers of mixed heritage, because based on how their characters have been described I can see them having a funny brother relationship somehow.

And damn but they weren't kidding about going in a steampunky direction. The design of this series is going to be amazing. HEARTS IN MY EYES FOR EVERYTHING I SEE SO FAR. READY FOR FALL NOW.

(Also, the giant Avatar Aang statue is cool except that the head looks like it still belongs to a 12-year-old. I hope that's supposed to be him at the age he was when he defeated Ozai because this is not accommodating my ideas of adult-Aang, LOL.)

I've been dealing with an annoyingly unreliable internet connection for the past few months, so not only have I been updating even less than usual but rarely ever gotten around to commenting or replying to comments when I meant to. Add to that the distraction of Tumblr and I feel like such an unintentionally cold and distant LJ friend, heh. So FINALLY a few things I've meant to update about...


It's probably impossible the Game of Thrones hype hasn't already reached you in some form already (especially if you follow my Tumblr which is embarrassingly full of GoT stuff lately), but to reiterate, if you haven't tried watching any of it yet you are quite the miserable sod. XD It isn't since I started BSG and it was like nothing I could have expected that I've loved a series this much after just the first episode. It's so good that at first I was resolved about waiting a few more years to read the books so I could enjoy one or two more seasons not knowing what happens, but after the way the finale ended it's pretty hard to wait to find out what's next, so I've finally caved and cracked open the first book. I think once I finish AGoT I'll have to do a top ten list of scenes that weren't included in Season 1 as well as original scenes in the show not from the text. (The latter might have some very defiant inclusions of Ros stuff because I bite my thumb at all the hate for her. :P)

I usually don't pay a lot of attention to the Emmys, but considering how unlikely it can be for a fantasy that isn't even terribly accessible like True Blood to get this kind of recognition, I'm really pleased about the nominations it got. For it to have not just slipped by unnoticed in its first season is good enough, and probably the only great injustice they could do the show this year is not give it the main title design award. Though Peter Dinklage probably has it in the bag as well since he was smart enough to submit in the supporting actor category.

Those who've watched most of the season will get why I was a bit amused when I saw it was nominated for hairstyling specifically for the episode "A Golden Crown"....Heh. Heh.


Just for the lulz let's talk about how ridiculous True Blood still is. Read more...Collapse )


I'm having way too much fun jumping on the "writing bits of Harry Potter personal canon" bandwagon on Tumblr, and it's also making me realize just how long ago it was that I first got into the books. I feel like I used to have such a detailed and clear idea in my head of what some characters like Tonks and Sirius are really like to me and it's gotten a bit vague now that I haven't written any HP fanfiction or even had plot bunnies in my head for a long time.

I'm also looking for just about any kind of recs of HP fics because I feel like finding some decent classics to read and literally don't even know where to start because I never happened to read as much as I wrote in this fandom during the golden age. I made that post and then realized you can't even post URLs in replies or asks on Tumblr (ugh Tumblr you are kind of useless for some things), but if anyone has bookmarks or rec lists they want to direct me to I'd be happy. :)

jolinar_rosha asked me...
1. Out of all your uni subjects, which one is your absolute favourite?
I'm not at college/university anymore but one of my favorite classes I ever took was Anti-Hero Lit.
2. If you could travel into any of the worlds of your fandoms, which one would it be and why?
Middle Earth, but only if I could stay and live there. I've always wished I could live in the Shire in a cozy little hobbit hole with a pretty little garden. Seriously, if I'm ever absurdly rich, I will have myself a hobbit hole built somewhere in the countryside in Europe.
3. Do you cook? If yes, what's your favourite dish to cook?
Sort of? Haha. I'd like to learn how to cook a lot of new things but it's something I rarely take the time for. Home-made macaroni and cheese would be my favorite thing I can make now, LOL.
4. If you were a ridiculously-rich Hollywood producer, and could make *any* book into a film/series, which one would you choose?
I think it's time a big-budget franchise of Animorphs was made because the TV show was fail, hehe. MY GENERATION REMEMBERS.
5. If we lived in the middle ages, and assuming that gender/social status was of no consequence, what profession would you choose for yourself?
Man, this is the best question ever. XD Something that would let me ride a horse all day, like a messenger.
