dangermousie: (PMK: Yamanami/Akesato by psychodragon82)
I've had it for ages but today I finally started Hakuoki Shinsengumi, the one where a cross-dressing girl named Chizuru joins the Shinsengumi who are also, occasionally, vampires. With a set-up like this, it's pretty much made for me!



She also gets it on with hunky hunky Hijikata Toshizo at some point (who, according to wikipedia, was who Aoshi from Kenshin was modeled on. Mmmmmmmm. I think I will now have to crush on Hijikata by default).

The animation is gorgeous beyond belief and I was amused to see Shinsengumi be model-gorgeous and sporting purple, blue, etc. hair and that our heroine was overcome by lust-at-first-sight upon seeing Hijikata, his locks blowing in the wind, dispatching a bunch of feral assassins (though perhaps, as his first words to her were to the effect that if 'he' tries to run, Hijikata would kill 'him,' perhaps her lust overcame her common sense).

I am sure the real Shinsengumi would commit mass slaughter on seeing this anime, but I am enjoying it too much.

Have a shippy MV:

Come here for the scene in ep 8 which made my heart flutter )

I also love the contrast of the time-traveller in modern clothes and the modern girl in period dress (I am sure the kissing is in part because of this btw. He obviously finds traditional dress a lot more his thing).

MMMMMM. Why are they so sweet?

It is no secret I enjoy romance novels, but I largely do it in the same way I do cotton candy - it's sweet, quick, and forgotten as soon as consumed. However, there are some that escape that oblivion, that I adore and keep and reread and think are very very good. Below the cut are my 15 favorites, in no order.

Two notes: First, I didn't put any Georgette Heyer or Patricia Veryan on this because otherwise the list would be solely them. And the other note is that this list, like any list, reflects my personal preferences - I prefer period romances to contemporary ones, I like my romance explicit and also am very fond of h/c. The choices below rather reflect that.

List here of the 15 books )
