I LOL'd

But if Soel is the chick AND a purty princess, does that mean she (?) is the healer of the party? Also, what class is Watanuki, a paladin or what? Is Larg the same one? Isn't a spiky mace kind of an awkward weapon for someone with Kimihiro's body weight?

VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS.

Now back to study.

ETA: larger size

Creo que ya entiendo porqué me negaba un poco a listar personajes favoritos en el friending meme de Mansión, aparte del hecho de tener cerebro de pollo para recordar tantos. Es porque siento que la mitad resultaría completamente desconocidos XDDD ("Ushi-quién?!")

Anyway, that fanon meme. Sorry some of these will shorter. I guess that means I don't have so many suppositions and think of them as canon says they are?

Oversharpened. You know what's sad? I didn't use the sharpen tool ONCE. It just ended up like that after toying with selective colors or the layers' modes or some shit, and I never even noticed until they pointed out. Hell, I still don't see the issue, so that means I'm a lesser dumb iconist with no artistic eye or something. Either way, I'm so kicked out next week. This is just extending my agony.

Anyway, enough about LIMS. There's plot now on Tsubasa, and there's one thing I need to point out. Spoilers )

Now to watch this week's Heroes.

Honesty meme. You can post anonymous if you want?

And thank God I saw someone wrote XXXHOLiC/Bakeneko crossover. One less wanting to do immediately. But if we ever hear about the Medicine Seller's backstory? FEAR. I'm sure I'll come up with something.

So, I mentioned I have my runes back here, and that I found the handbook. (First off, I'm not a pagan or a wiccan, but I love consulting oracles. I also do I Ching. Tarot is a funny case because that one hates me and won't answer me and confuses me the fuck out of me. But I like the idea of oracles. I blame it on my mother. The thing with astrology was on my own, but she was the one getting all the fortune-telling crap and letting me use it. Whether they work or Jung was right, I don't care. It's fun to consult.)

...I think I went offtopic. So I have my book here, and I went to check what they said about Sowilo and Laguz. You know, the runes Mokona Modoki have on their earrings? I've talked about it once, ages ago. So here's another source, and let's try to link it to the CLAMPverse.

Yeah, cut for your sanity and because there are fragments in Spanish )

I'll do Laguz/XXXHOLiC in another post.

A sorting quiz I haven't done yet? )

And now.

Dear person who joined a fanlisting I run,

Why on bloody Earth did you label the Soel & Larg (as in Mokona Modoki's relationship, guys, yeah) code under "Relationships: yaoi"?

I... um... no, I got nothing. I think I don't want to know how that works.

Utterly confused, and appalled your clasification system for relationships has to fall into "het, yaoi, yuri, or threesomes" (platonic? familiar? asexual? what's that?),

Me.

Visto en su foro:

Maru
[...] Me habéis dejado con el misterio con eso de "un nuevo volumen especial de CLAMP". Me quedo con dos posibilidades: Un Character Guide de TRC o el libro Soel to Larg: Mokona Modoki no Bouken. ¿He acertado?. La verdad, espero que sea la segunda opción. Un saludo. ^__^

Redacción
Apuntamos tus votos... y no vamos a decirte si has acertado o no, claro, que hay que mantener el suspense.


(Traducción: claro que acertaste, pero no te vamos a decir cuál es, lololol.)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH~~~~~

QueSeaSoelToLargQueSeaSoelToLargQueSeaSoelToLargQue...

Es que a ver, coño, bias aparte. Un character book de ésos están bien y son interesantes de leer, pero no aportan tanto. El libraco (también conocido como Cute Mascot Overload por unos y The Clow/Yuuko shippers' Bible por otros) tiene al menos nuevo canon que nunca sale en los tres dos mangas implicados.

Claro está, el problema radica en que es más fácil, desde el punto de vista de la compañía, decantarse por un character guide porque no es tan obscuro y una gran cantidad de los fans lo consideraría. Que de paso, en contenido es bastante similar a la mierda de las revistas de CLAMP no Kiseki el cual vendió; es más fácil hacer comparativas y especulaciones. El Soel to Larg es un frikismo del tamaño de la Torre de Tokyo, y no hay precedentes de ninguna compañía occidental sacando tal engendro en cristiano.

Por otro lado, la gente que se compró TODA la antología CLAMP
a) o somos demasiado freaks coleccionistas
b) o queríamos las figuritas badly, por lo que nuestra fascinación por lo "kawaii" puede con nosotros
c) o todas las anteriores.
Vamos, por las revistas no creo que hubiese muchos que las compraran. Considerando que Soel to Larg es artbook, merchandising y "kawaii" todo al mismo tiempo, no es tan descabellado pensar que haya más de un incauto, servidora y amigos españoles en el fandom excluidos, que se compre esta cosa. En especial después del derroche de sacarina de cierta historia extra del installment 10 del kiseki, que para el ajeno al metacanon podría o no resultar intrigante (...creo).

El punto de todo esto: Si ellos sacan el Soel to Larg, les beso los pies y me arruino comprándoles esa cosa al precio que haga falta. Sí, con todo y que lo tengo en japonés, yo soy la primera que se los compro, porque al final de cuentas yo les puse la maldita idea en estudio y conviene a mis intereses. Si sacan el character guide... cuando haya plata, o cuando haya descuentos por geeky holidays (léase feria del comic local o el Día del Orgullo Friki).

These three weeks are going to pass soooooo slowly XP

More interviews, from Sha-chan this time. First CLAMP, Nintendo, antisocial, patterns on obsessions, Mokona Modoki )

Back to PW.
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Watanuki / Night wish)
Wow, so many new CLAMP art today to oogle at!

  1. Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE: The fandom that, to prove you they'll do every existing badfic cliché ever, will actually have high school AU written by the creators!


  2. Calendars!

    1. January: THIS. This is my kind of fanservice. These suits. That's hot. Fandom, you can keep your chains and dog collars and leatherpants, but Watanuki and Kurogane wearing old-fashioned clothes are mine to keep. kthx.


    2. December: CCS ripoff, dude. Although I thought it was cute Maru and Moro finally made it to a calendar illustration. They have so little color images, the poor girl-thingies.


    3. Mokona Modoki minicalendar: LOL! My favorite image is the one with the pink turtle, even if the winged eggplants were funny. And [livejournal.com profile] laurus_nobilis, a piece of an advice: check February first for extra brain-breakage. *evil*
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Yuuko / ♥)
...Because if they do, they fell on the ground and get their clothes, folder, and backpack all muddy. Real life experience, totally true! Sad thing is there wouldn't be a difference if I had taken the bus after that one, as I had to wait twenty minutes at the bus station for the other bus. Nnnnnnng.

But anyway! If only my webcam wasn't an asshole, I'd definitely be taking pictures since I went downtown and got:

CLAMP NO KISEKI #10 ♥


Chibi Yuuko and chibi Fye squeeeeeee!

Sadly, Fye will have to handle without Kurogane as I can't buy #11 this month. He can annoy my tiny Kurogane keyring on the meantime~

By the way, I've been trying to find the English translation to the HOLiC interview and couldn't find it. Who made it? Was it even done? I never read it until today, so I could've missed it. If nobody else tackled it, I'll translated it from Spanish -I was going to anyway, for K.net's English part.

[Spanish mode: on]

Sé que la traducción en inglés ya está hecha, pero voy a transcribir la versión de Norma de la historia de Soel y Larg que vino en el Kiseki. Así podemos tener una segunda versión de lo que dicen, considerando que ésta es traducida del japonés directamente mientras que la otra viene del chino al inglés. Los que ya tienen el Kiseki en español pueden ignorar esto ^^

Nos encontraremos en sueños )
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (You make Mokona cry!)
Yeah. Called it. 'Twas retarded.

Now I can safely ignore both CLAMP animes as any canon, and pretend in denial that animated Mokonas are definitely not Larg and Soel. Because I'm sure Soel, while he never met Cerberus in the tiny form, at least would've made a jump over the creature's name and the stone carving.

Oh Bee Train, you so crazy. And I thought you couldn't rape Koryo country any further. Y halo thar!
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Soel & Larg / awesome book)
I'm personally tired of the fanbrats who try to send me emails concerning my old CCS page (which has been dead for TWO YEARS). But it's not the mails themselves. It's how they refuse to search for my email or the contact form in the site section, but they all follow this pattern:

a) Her nickname is kirisame
b) Gmail accounts are hot

Therefore, she must use kirisame at gmail dot com! :DDDDD Let's send her our lousy fanfics over there! It totally isn't going to be received by a wrong person who picked that username before and perhaps can't speak Spanish!

Which is just bizarre because I never mention I own that fucking email address ANYWHERE in the site (actually, I got the gmail account AFTER I abandoned the damned site.) My yahoo account is the one listed there, and I still use it (even with more frequency than the bloody google mail; actually, I don't even use my gmail for almost anything.)

[/rantage]

Anyway, I got a better email than fics in which Sakura is a waiter (WTF!)

For those who read Jamie's journal and/or her translations on Mokona Modoki, she emailed me last Friday. She told me she has Internet issues and her connection sucks, so she can't get online. This is why she's disappeared.

However, she sent me the translation for the Soel to Larg pages I passed on her ♥ I asked her for permission to put them here right now and I still haven't heard back, but I'll take them off if she asks me to.

A couple of Mokona stories )
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Soel & Larg / awesome book)
Yo jalando a los de Editorial Norma en su foro para que indulguen mis "frikismos":

Kirisame
Ya que vosotros estais explotando el filón de CLAMP, ¿podría sugeriros que os planteaseis traducir el libro (mitad novela, mitad artbook) "Soel to Larg: Mokona Modoki no Bouken" hecho por ellas? Sé de algunos fans de Tsubasa y XXXHOLiC, yo contada, que les interesaría leer esas historias ambientadas antes de esos mangas. Muchas gracias por escucharme.


Redacción
Hemos apuntado tu sugerencia y estudiaremos sus posibilidades.





Sí, sí, estúdienlo T______T

Lo triste es que yo *correria* a comprar el maldito libro si lo sacan, aunque
a) me cobren un ojo de la cara
b) ya lo tengo en japonés

(English summary: I'm trying to convince the local CLAMP-specialized editors to translate the Mokona Modoki book. They said they wrote the suggestion down and they'll study the possibilities. And I'm saying I'm such an obsessed dork I'll run to buy the damned book in Spanish regardless of anything)
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Ducklings / quack)
Of course!

We're in Mercury Retrograde! That explains why the FMA chapter is taking SO fucking long! It's not a good period for communications, after all! Ah, astrology's Murphy's Law provided the answer.

Anyway...

Laurus, remember I was telling you about those batshit Mokona PJs? I found a wallet/pencil case in Y! Auctions with the same design, here. Yes, that's several kinds of wrong.

Also, WTH. 100 journals have friended me O______o

To pass the time, quizzes )
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Soel & Larg / awesome book)
I went manga shopping today.

- TRC 11
- XXXHOLiC 7
- CCS 1, 3, 4, 5 (because the editorial is changing prices next month, so I need to finish this collection in June; one to go)

Also, they're releasing a new edition of The Sandman in small issues (like, two chapters each). It'll take me three years to buy it that way, but it's still cheaper than buying the old edition, so hard to find. Man, is the earlier art fugly.

Furuba will have to wait next month.

Meanwhile, the TRC volume had an omake talking about the crossovers and compiling an incomplete list of sorts. However, what got me was this part:

"The link is Mokona=Modoki a creature Yuuko and Clow Reed created one day, with two bodies, one black and one white. It's like a communicator between worlds."

Er. AFAIC, and that's a lot, you're just making a fat supposition. I see no tangible or implied evidence in any canon that we know of that both Mokonas are the same creature split in half or something. WTF.

aren't you confusing the children with daddy?
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Kyon / oh happy face)
A thread in a board made me realize something.

Mokona's eyes )

If you excuse me, I'll now curl up and die from plotbunnies of something so not related to this subject. Good Omens plotbunnies, actually, and one of them is a crossover.
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Yuuko and Larg/ Yay!)
Finally, finally, finally. I have canon proof on this. Actual pictures where the Mokonas appear with their full names.



I wish I had this sooner. Would've saved me so much wank.

Oh, and can someone please translate the text for me? I'm rather curious.



So, yeah, in the end I made some tests, and the Mokona book is really easy to scan. The text is several centimeters away from the page border. Which is great, since I suck at scanning, and yet I'll be able to get this baby scanned. *nods*

Not right now, though. *cringes at the Operative Systems practical work due on Friday.

ETA: now that I'm see the image again, I'm guessing that the runes might work more as initials than the actual name. Like, if you were to write Soel in ancient Norse, you'd have to write it with Sowilo as it's their S letter. Same with Larg and Laguz. Of course, there's also a high chance Ohkawa Clow truly sucked at transliterations and messed up with their names' writing. After all, this is the "King of predecessor" lady. That would explain my theory about Clow being Jiulou's bad transliteration.

Oh, and question. Is Keroberos the official pronunciation for Cerberus? Because in the book, they used Keruberosu as katakana for his name. Which of course, would be the correct Greek pronunciation of the name passed to Japanese (Kerberos -> Keruberosu), if we're picky.
