I have spent this weekend catching up to comics/manga.

Read much Batman related comics, and caught up to Red Robin - OMFG! Just OMFG! TIM! KON! STEPH! This whole thing have been a blast. I'm so thankful that Tim's angst is finally an end. Also, DAMIAN! DEVIL!CHILD! How I ADORE you!

Gods - I have so much love for the Bats family - whenever there are together in the same room (more than two of them) I get ALL FLUSTERED and GLEEFUL! Love them so very much.

Have finally caught up with The Breaker (chap. 70) - I'm heart broken. I can't deal. Gods, *CRIES*.


I need a Robin icon (or Tim Drake).

It's your fault I've been reading this thing.&mbsp; WHERE IS THE FIC, HUH.

(One of my male friends also reads it, but I don't think I can explain that I'm reading for the Akira-Hikaru dynamic.... >.>;;;)

On the other hand, I'm completely >:| on all the female charas, BUT OH WELL.  Maybe Sosul will suck it up and find a motivation outside of getting a man? >.>

Isn't it AWESOME?! It is like HnG if Akira had a better fashion sense and Hikaru was more innocent... while KingFu fighting! This series is pretty damn awesome, though - are you up to date with it?

I admit it - I'm curretnly very broken over this series. *CLINGS*

Oh, um, I'm very happy that you are reading The Breaker based on my gushing, but, um, BEWARE of Veritas. It draws in with the stereotypes and the Lols, and it than fricking gut-punches you and break all your fingers. It is, um, yeah.

But yes, WHERE ARE THE FICS?!!!

(I have d/led Veritas; shall wait for a rainy day or somesuch to get on with it!)

But I think Akira is supposed to be fashionable, looking at Japanese street fashion (like the tenipuri boys!) XD;;

I am up to date.  THIS SITUATION WILL NOT STAND; IT TOO SHALL PASS.  (The scanlators are putting it out at a good clip, which is nice....)

re: the Akira-Hikaru dynamic, I know it is kind of blasphemy to say it, but I can't help but recall that it is sort of BASED ON A LIIIIIIE and then a bait-and-switch. >.>  It's not so easily characterized as such in The Breaker, at least... and Hyuk So Chun is a treat, if a strange bird. XD  Though right now I don't know if I want interaction with Hyuk So Chun to proceed vs. with Chun Woo?  SIGH.

(ffn has failed me!  ao3 has failed me!  Iiiiii don't know where else will have the volume, and no longer trust my lj-searching skillz. >.>;;;)

(... At least it is complete. Well, part 1 of it. If you need to talk about it afterwards, you may vent on my lj (or ping?) me, or write a post to vent it out of your system, I will respond with sympathy. I will understand.)

YES! PASS. PLEASE. I don't think I can handle this. I honestly thought I would be all over the Shi Woon and So Chun interaction, because as you said OMFG! Hikaru + Akira. Except So Chun is so much more mature (and oh, so sneaky and deadly, and kind of awesomer in many ways) than Akira, and his relationship with ShiWoon only appears to be similar on the surface. But yes, Hyuk So Chun is an odd bird indeed.

Back to the point - I was all for Shi Woon and So Chun, but OMFG! I NEED MORE time with Shi Woon and Chun Woo. I did NOT think I would love their relationship as much as I do. But by the gods, I want them TOGETHER (and NOT even in the sexual way). Just - well, I have missed a good depiction of teacher-student relationship. And Shi Woon has complete faith in Chun Woo, and Chun Woo is always kind of blind-sided by this complete and utter loyalty and belief by this complete NAÏVE kid. Who, ok, sure reminds him of his relationship with his own master, but is so completely different, because let’s admit it, Chun Woo was never that naïve.

(There is NO fic for this fandom, it is completely irritating. LJ, fanfc, ao3, they all fail. I’m so VERY sad about this.)

(Also, I think the only reason Hikaru and Akira’s relationship did work for me, and say, not fail because it was based on a complete lie was because Akira recognised the difference in Hikaru and Sai’s go. Sure, Hikaru continued to lie, but well, who would believe him and not lock him up in a mental institution. And by the time Hikaru could have been sure Akira would recognise and believe that Sai existed… well, Hikaru was well on his way to needing to be recognised for his own go. I’m not sure how explain it, but it is like, Akira knows there is a lie, and Hikaru has pretty much told him that there is a secret here, and I’m not going to tell you, but yeah, not the whole truth. And I’m not sure where I’m going with this so I’m going to stop now.)
