Day 11: Who do you think wore the goggles best?

Considering he's among the few who actually uses them for something, I'd say Takato. But his goggles are the fugliest (that yellow, omfg. kill me.) and he was the less leader-like of all the main boys.

So I'm gonna say Taichi. His googles are the coolest, and they end up as a sort of symbol of his leadership >_> Since he hands them down to Daisuke and all...

Special mention to Takuya for his magically regenerating goggles, too.

Day 09: Favourite friendship.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS QUESTION? This show is about THREE THINGS - SELLING TOYS, MONSTERS FIGHTING, AND FRIENDSHIPS. It's dripping with them and they are all fucking amazing. So, so many things in this series are fueled by friendship and love and the bonds between the kids and the Digimon or their families and so on.

I can't just go and freaking pick just one.Go away.

Day 07: A couple you can’t stand.

Mimi/Jyou. I generally don't have much hate for pairings, and like I said before I'm a big multishipper in this franchise - but ugh, this thing. Not only do I think they have zero chemistry (they barely even interact, ffs) and don't seem to really give much of a fuck about each other (even during their little time apart in the Dark Masters arc, they... don't really strike me as omg getting along awesomely or learning much more about each other or anything), it's also so boring. I don't think they complement each other at all, I don't think they're better (or would be) for being around each other, nothing. And everything I've ever seen from fandom re: these two makes them into this obnoxious, cliche'd high-school-like cheerleader/nerd pairing, making them both OOC and unrecognizable and a pair of giant Stus. Bleeeeeeegh.

A sort of close second would be Kouji/Izumi from Frontier, for pretty much the same reasons. And god, the insufferable omg emo prince~*~/princess type fics and stuff. Gross. The only difference is that I do think they seem to care and like each other a bit more, so I think MAYBE in the right hands it could actually be cool. It just... usually ends up in the hands of Junpei haters who think they should be together only because Kouji's pretty and that's all that matters.

Day 06: A couple you wish existed.

Man, this one was tough! I multiship a lot in this franchise and don't really have many pairings I get all OMG WHY AREN'T THEY TOGETHER!1. I tend to ship canon, many of my ships have tons of subtext if they aren't canon, /and/ anything that /is/ canon doesn't really get a ton of attention. The official couples are just a random mention at the end of Zero Two, or are a cute, mostly one-sided crush, or things like that. I don't get all omg, why can't I have THIS SCENE with these other two charas? because of it.

I kinda thought of a few - Daisuke/Ken, Taichi/Yamato/Sora, Kouji/Kouichi, etc, but ahahaha I- I don't think canon would've recognized those. And then there're things like Takeru/Hikari where I still consider it pretty much canon, so ehn who cares if we don't have it spelled out.

So hrmm. Maybe Taiki/anyone? I love that Xros Wars has that "everyone wants Taiki" thing going on, and I love it, but while I mildly ship him with just about everyone he's ever talked to, I don't really have a big big OTP for him. And I love him so hardcore, I think I'd go nuts with fanbratty joy if I could have a ship for him I liked the most.

Day 04: Favourite digital monster.

Patamon & their whole evo line *3* <3333

If it's within the actual series, then... Patamon again (Takeru's, but Frontier's is adorable too), sharing first place with Taiki's Shoutmon, who despite having a design I didn't really like much initially has absolutely won me over with his sheer awesome. I have never cheered so much for a Digimon since the beginning :| ILU, Shoutmon, and I want you to be the Digimon King forever and ever.

Special mentions: Terriermon, Lopmon, Culumon and Beelzebumon ♥

jlarinda: Takuya looking bored (Digimon - Bah)
I still cannot believe that after 19 covers of Watanuki (+ almost the same of Yuuko), 28 covers + 4 deluxe + 2 artbooks of Syaoran, 12 covers + 12 remakes + 4 artbooks + almost all the DVDs + the new movie blu-ray covers of Sakura, 3 covers of Kaza & Riku, 8 covers + the artbook of Chii, 7 covers of Subaru, 5 covers of Misaki, 3 covers of Hinata, 6 covers + the artbook of Kobato, 10 covers of Ashura...


People still act surprised or annoyed or disappointed whenever a main character is featured on a new cover of the manga, or the artbook, or some new merchandising.

I mean. Really? This is in any way surprising or not what you'd expect?

Don't get me wrong, I'd love more variety in color pics. But I absolutely do not expect it to happen for volume/artbook/dvd covers. Not at all. CLAMP always draws the main, most iconic characters on them.

AND THAT'S OKAY. I doubt it's them going, gee, we haven't drawn Sakura enough already! It's far, far more likely a marketing thing - seeing how a shitton of other mangakas do the same, I don't... get what the hell is the big deal about it. Or why is it that every time, someone has to go and whine about it.

Day 03: Which digivice do you like best?

The Adventure one, partially because of nostalgia and partially because I actually love the design, and the D-Scanner because it has the perfect mix between being an awesome toy (you can scan things *A*) and simply looking cool in the series. And I just adore the color schemes for each chara.

Day 02: Favourite character.

... Man, this one's difficult. If only because THERE ARE SO MANY. I tend to love the goggle boys, and the emo loner kids...

Trying to narrow it down as much as possible: Taichi, Takeru, Kouichi, Taiki.

Aaaand we're finally at the end! I kept delaying this one 'cause I wanted to be in the right mindtrack to answer it.

CLAMP 30 day meme

+ Day 30: How has CLAMP changed your life?

Man. Well, aside from having become my absolutely number one fandom, with everything that means - all the shenanigans from modding comms to getting into stupid arguments and so on... There's Kiseki. Which started out as an excuse to play a couple of characters, but years and years later is still standing. Through this game I met some of my best friends right now, and I have had the most ridiculous fun, be it in the actual games or the game's chat. Far too many nights spent laughing until I couldn't breathe. This game's so, so important and precious to me.

And it wouldn't exist without CLAMP. So I have them to thank for that.

The rest )

And now, because I cannot just quit these memes, have yet another one for another of my major fandoms.

Digimon 30 days meme

Day 01: How old were you when you first discovered Digimon?

I had to be twelve or thirteen. I can't remember the exact date, but what I do remember is mom asking me and my brother what was it we were singing along to... We were singing the dub's version of Butter-Fly as the series aired. So that's an easy way to know how old I had to be.

I can't get over how gorgeous the cover is ever ahsakjfdsjkgklds; I love love love how fun and silly it is and everyone's poses and interactions, and the clothes and little details on them (like Chika and Hana's flowers on theirs, or Sakura's wings on hers). And omg Kobato has a birdie on her head and CCS!Syao looks so dorky and tiny and cute and TRC!Syao looks so stupidly handsome and ahhh ahhhhhhh this pic

CLAMP 30 day meme

+ Day 28: Favourite official CLAMP artwork

Oh, get the fuck out. LIKE I COULD EVER PICK JUST ONE?!

I'll just make a special mention for their crossover pics, because I just adooooore those. Specially if they add charas that aren't the usual "main character" ones into the mix. It's awesome to see them draw a ton of characters together, the way they interact, seeing them in outfits that match when they get those, etc. And it usually means we get to see characters from older/finished series even if theirs aren't the main focus at the time, and even if there aren't any news/re-releases/etc from their series.

+ Day 27: An unpopular opinion you feel the need to share about CLAMP

Well I kind of. post these on a regular basis. So, I'm choosing the one I feel most strongly about, particularly recently. It's something a big portion of fandom seems to disagree about, something I've gotten in several arguments over. I feel so strongly about it, it might be the difference on whether or not I have someone in my f-list. It's something that actually /defines/ me in a way, it's that big.

Here it goes...

I love CLAMP.

No, really. I do. And not just the "old" CLAMP, or the "new" CLAMP, or something like that. I love them as a whole. I love their old series. I love their new ones. I love talking about them. I love their drawings, and how they've evolved and keep changing even now. I love their stories, from the silliest and fluffiest, to the darkest, to the whatthefuckjusthappeneddidwejustskipahundredyearsisthatanothersyaoran. I love their tropes, their character cameos, their crossovers with themselves, their AU versions, their twins, their ying-yang characters, their soulmates and their many many types of pairings. I love Piffle Princess and the Dukylon chain and their multiverses and their eye fetish and their flowery backgrounds. I love their sparkly girls, their silent dudes, their creepers, their fakers and their godmods and their dreamseers and their emo mops and their awesome mascots. I love their short series and their longer ones and their multi-media ones. I love their festivals and their figurine series and their artbooks and their blog doodles and their volume editions. I love hitsuzen and their magic spells. I love their trolling forever.

I love CLAMP. I don't think they used to be good and now suck, I don't think they're only good now, I don't think they're shitty but read their stories anyway. I don't think they're perfect, either. I just love them, okay.
