karanguni: (ROY looks)
Because:

a) failing at life is my major past time
b) I feel kinda sad (real life, why art thou real?)
c) my life is a dark abyss etc due to strange reasons involving the sudden and abrupt loss of important academic documents

Therefore:

I post short, kinda substandard drabblefic lugged in over from IJ. Sorry, guys. Bad week. Too stressed to write anything real. My sendspace account also chose this brilliant moment to bite the dust, leaving me sad and DDDDDDDDDD: Hooray, Murphy! \o/

Baccano!

Ladd Russo: the sickness/the symptoms )

Luck Gandor: I need a taste of what it's like )

Final Fantasy VII

Elena: We'll kill one of yours )

Final Fantasy XII

Balthier: friendly fire )
karanguni: (LUCIFER morningstar)
Yes, she's not dead yet, etc. Iron Man was spiffy! Here, have some distracting drabbles ported over from IJ.

Lucifer/Baccano!, because, well, because. The Devil sure don't need no reasons. So why should Claire? 716 words.

Lucifer/Baccano! crossover: Claire, Mazikeen )

Aaaand an Iron Man one, because clearly, I am going to hell. Warnings for (very brief) mentions of naughty toys. 8D. 1102 words.

Iron Man: Tony and Jarvis )

Well, maybe not so massive...

There are a couple of fandoms out there that have had a profound impact on me and my lifestyle (eg, how often I sleep; when I sleep; why my fingers are bent at a funny angle from hitting and holding the shift key too often; how I look at people; how I look at myself; which way the world turns); and very often when writing for them or leafing through the material again I am hit by the urge to supplement them with music.

Under the cut are a couple of the fandoms (obscure or not) which have augmented my worldview and triggered massive music trawling over the last few years. :D Sometimes I talk about the fandom, other times I just talk about the music; sometimes I'm lucky enough to be able to blabber on about both.

*points down* And, music aside, if anyone wants a copy of The Left Hand of Darkness, clicky the cut.

Title: Growing Up Is Still The Most Fun That You Will Ever Have
Rating: G
Characters: Claire, Luck, Keith, Berga
Summary: Because Claire had to have grown up into the balanced individual he later became somehow. Everything he learnt, he learnt from his brothers.
Warnings: Mmm, invented backstory, ho.

2154 words of crazy almost-not-quite mafia-family fluff with a pretentious title to boot!

'You know, your dad is really weird,' Claire said; it was one of the first things that the angry-looking redhead kid said to Luck. )

HI. LET ME MAKE YOUR WEEKEND MORE ENJOYABLE. Welcome to the world of Baccano!, and because you're going to end up reading this post whether you like it or not, might as well sit tight and prep up for the ride. ♥ Your flight attendant for the night is Koyasu Takehito (Zechs, Gundam Wing; Ran, Weiss Kruez), and your co-pilots include (but are not limited to) Fujiwara Keiji (Reno, Final Fantasy VII; Maes Hughes, Fullmetal Alchemist), Yoshino Hiroyuki (Allelujah, Gundam 00) and Onosaka Masaya (Momoshiro, Prince of Tennis; Vash, Trigun).

Baccano! deals with slick, smooth New York mafia families from the 1930s Prohibition era, and packs into 13 episodes a hell of a lot of punch. The supporting cast is huge, surprisingly memorable and entirely lustable lovable. Throw in a few issues regarding immortality, family grudges, turf wars, kickass friendships, an upbeat jazz intro and you've got one of the best releases of 2007.

The beautiful subbers at Ayu have recently started re-releasing DVD versions with hugely better animation at their site. The older version is also up there! I've upped episode one onto MU. (xx to tt!)

Today's 2 characters are Luck Gandor and Firo Prochainezo.

Luck GANDOR

Third son of the Gandor Mafia family, Luck smiles a lot, plans a lot, and screws people up real good. Words alone cannot quite convey how awesome he is, so have some pictures to illustrate:








Firo PROCHAINEZO

Firo was next-door neighbour to the Gandors during their childhood, but he's grown up pretty well on his own. Now the youngest executive of the Martillo family, Firo goes around looking adorable and kicking people's teeth in. ♥ With his hat usually still on.






Have a few icons to go:



Baccano! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
