Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

From delfeus:

AMVs


My first experience with AMVs was way back in 2003 at this site when I was looking for yuri. First one I saw was Sephiroth’s Gravity of Utena vid. I was hooked. Made my first one a few months later.

Since then I’ve made a grand total of 88 of the suckers… I love AMVs =) In most cases (there have been a few exceptions) the story and inspiration has come entirely from the song, not the anime itself. It’s really about the music for me.

I love watching AMVs too. AMVs are a big source of where I learn about new animes and new musical artists. That’s why I feel it’d be dumb for the music and/or anime companies to press charges against the editors, because AMVs have cost me plenty in the purchase of music and DVDs, same with a lot of editors. Lol. They’re free advertising! A good AMV editor (not me XD) can make an anime look way better than it actually is anyways =P

Weiß Kreuz


Oh Weiß Kreuz, something always brings me back to you. I discovered Weiß Kreuz 7 years ago when googling self mutilation and a Farfarello profile popped up! Lol. I read about him and Schwarz and decided that I must watch the show! So I did, waiting for Schwarz to pop up, and happened to like all the Weiß boys too. I won’t lie, first go ‘round with the series I was a diehard Aya fan girl and spent a lot of time obsessing over Yohji/Aya. Lol. But Crawford/Schuldig has always been my OTP and I’ve never gotten tired of it.

Though I love the Weiß boys, it’s Schwarz that keeps me interested. They’re fairly unique to any other anime I’ve ever watched and I love what some of my favorite fanfiction authors manage to do with the four of them. =) My love for the series waxes and wanes, but it’s never died out. Right now I’m totally into it full-force again! Lol.

Yami no Matsuei


Oh Yami no Matsuei… Lol. I had a love-hate relationship with this series. I first watched it back in like 2001 back before it was all that popular or licensed. I was still totally obsessed with Gravitation and the thought of a new shouen-ai/YAOI series had me thrilled. All the reviewers really played up the YAOI factor. So I bought the import DVDs and watched it….. And was totally disappointed. Lol. I didn’t get the meaning of subtle back then. So I re-ebay-ed my DVDs and forgot about it for a few years…. Re-watched it with older eyes and loved it! Lol. Though I still don’t like Hisoka =P

Tatsumi is the best! XD

Ran/Aya


Oh Ran, my first Weiß Kreuz love. I went in to the series fully prepared to be nothing but a Farfarello and Schwarz fangirl (which eventually happened, the being a Schwarz girl part much more than being a Farfie-fan part) but your silent brooding stole my adolescent heart and filled the role that Yuki from Gravitation had. XD I was ->SUCH<- and Aya fangirl. I still have a couple collages of him hanging up here in the office XD

I have grown out of him since then. I still love him, along with almost all the Weiß Kreuz characters, but not in such a fangirly way. Lol. He’s just such a little black dress. Goes well with all the other Weiß boys, quite a few of the lady characters (I don’t care who you are, Aya/Manx is HOT!), and is the only Weiß boy that I enjoy shipping with Schwarz members. And, being Koyasu’s most beloved brain child, he gets some of the best footage in the series to work with for AMV purposes =3

T.a.t.u.


Oh T.a.t.u. (why I am starting all of these explanations with “oh _______,” ???), how I love you. My newly realized bisexuality and love for the ladies burned intensely when I came across your video for “All the Things She Said” as I channel flipped so many, many years ago. I was so drawn in, but quickly changed the channel when my mom came back in the room. Lol.

Anyways, since then I’ve fallen in love with their other music. I know that their “relationship” and lesbianism was a front to get more fans and attention, but I don’t mind. I don’t mind because even if they aren’t gay and/or a couple, the integrity of their lyrics and the power of the Sapphic theme that runs in a lot of their songs is something not seen a lot in music. I love that they give a voice to some of the hardships gays face, and do it with emotional intensity, even if it isn’t something they’ve experienced first hand.

Certain lines of theirs just bring me to tears sometimes:

“Mother looking at me, tell me what do you see? Yes I’ve lost my mind” -All the Things She Said

“Are we in love? Do we deserve to bear the shame of this whole world?” -Stars

You are so interesting.
(And I mean that in the best possible way, really.)

I have never heard of/seen/read/watched Weiß Kreuz or Yami no Matsuei, but they both seem incredibly intriguing the more I read about them via Your LJ posts and especially now because I took the time to google search them. I have also never listened to T.a.t.u. but they are gorgeous! (And I love the brunette's hair) ^^
Some of the things You write though.. We have a lot in common. We should definitely talk more.

I feel that I am going to have a lot of things to download/watch/listen to now, thanks to You [:


Also, can I has 5 things? :3

Weiss Kreus canon is pretty awful, but the fandom is amazing. I recommend that you suffer through the series once, just so you can read fics. ;) mami_san has amazing stuff, but there's other good stuff in the fandom, too.

LMAO @ being interesting. XD Thanks, I'm glad to be of entertainment.

Yami no Matsuei is definitely really good, both manga (on permanent hiatus ;~~;) and anime. As delfeus already said, Weiß Kreuz canon isn't the best thing in the world (though I genuinely do like it) but the fandom makes freakin' AWESOME stuff so it's worth it! XD Eeee for T.a.t.u.!!! I like a lot of the original Russian stuff better than their English songs, personally though both are great. =)

We do have much in common and should talk more! =D I'll try to be on im more often. *huggles*

5 things: writing, Bleach, sibling bonds (by that I mean the bond you have with yours, when you write about it it seems sweet), yumikkaku, and poetry (because everything you write has a poetic quality, even if it's not specifically poetry itself).
