As promised, some amazingly lovely shots of lovely women, gorgeous men, and more feathers than anywhere outside a strip bar. Or a flamingo farm.

The sexy and be-feathered Duke Wuhuan wants you to click on the cut. Or else he will have to use a cut of his own:



The Promise prettiness )

In other news, I am still gleeing and rewatching the last 10 minutes of Veronica Mars 2.22 and gleeing like mad.

Saw the Chinese martial arts epic The Promise tonight. Yum.

I will have a proper nice review and pictures tomorrow, but for today, just scattered thoughts. I loved it. Sure, it's probably flawed. If you look for challenging characters, look elsewhere. But who cares, this is a dream-like, gorgeous fairy tale for grown-ups.

First off, before I get to anything else. Nicholas Tse is just beautiful. I know he was the nasty villain but I couldn't take my eyes off him. As my companion put it "I've never seen anyone wear white with such style." And he fights with steel-tipped fans. And he is fastidious and elegant and just graceful and... I need to get my hands on other Nicholas Tse movies. Pronto.

I loved the actor who played Kunlun. He was definitely hot and angsty and had the sexiest voice. Even though I wanted to give him a bath for most of the movie.

The General was not a favorite (how indicative that he just believed his second-in-command about taking him back as a leader, however unrealistic it would be).

And the costumes? Crazy beautiful.

I loved the openness of the ending. What will she choose now? That's one hell of a love, right there, what Kunlin gave her. Will they even meet now? Anyone want to discuss?

I've bought The Promise and Perhaps Love on ebay, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] koalathebear inspired posts/pic spam on those movies. Can't wait to get them. See her post on The Promise and Perhaps Love. Also, inspired by her and [livejournal.com profile] winterspel will watch the jdoramas Long Vacation and Good Luck next week.

On eye-candy front, the topic is anime couples. I've certainly dedicated posts to anime OTPs. See Miaka/Tamahome picspam here and here, or a Kenshin/Kaoru one here. I didn't have much Doumyouji/Tsukushi picspam but I certainly wrote about them ad nauseam. But how about my other anime ships? That is, couples I ship but who are either secondary couples in the anime with my main OTP or are a ship in anime which doesn't have much emphasis on romance. Anyway, here is a little list with a few pics.

Vash/Meryl from Trigun. If this anime has a main canon ship I'd imagine it's this one, but since Trigun is not primarily or even secondarily a romance there isn't much stuff out there (relatively) about this OTP (nor did I write about them ad nauseam). But I love them, and not just because he saves her life repeatedly and she helps him find a reason to live after his break-down. They genuinely care for each other, and take care of each other, and laid back guy/bossy woman is a perfect combo, anyway.

Vash and Meryl )

Rui/Shizuka from Hana Yori Dango. Sure, for me, HYD is all about Doumyoji/Tsukushi's messed-up relationship, but I have a huge soft spot for Rui and Shizuka. He is withdrawn and cold and a bit too passive and she is ruthless and passionless in her perfectionism but somehow they really work for each other. She is is his first and only love and she discovers that she loves and wants him and no one else. The image of their final reunion is one of my favorite scenes in anything, ever.

Rui and Shizuka )

Sanosuke/Megumi from Rurouni Kenshin. I wrote about why I like them earlier and am too lazy to repeat, but honestly it's because they just click...

Sanosuke and Megumi )

Hotohori/Houki from Fushigi Yuugi. Talk about obscure. In part because hey, it's as close to Nuriko/Hotohori as you could get with someone as clearly straight as Hotohori. But largely it's because I wanted Hotohori to find happiness and he seemed to have found it at last with Houki. I didn't watch any of the 3rd OVA, except for the scene at the end where he is reunited with Houki and his son. It made no sense, within the logical parameters of that world that he would be able to do that, but I didn't care. And they looked happy and yay.

Hotohori and Houki )

Doumyouji/Tsukushi from Hana Yori Dango. All right, I lied. There is NO way D/T are not a main OTP or one I didn't write about before. But I just like the pics.

Doumyouji and Tsukushi )

ETA: Not a ship pic, but I just love this shot of Hotohori and his son from one of the OVAs. Talk about piling on the angst. He can't even freaking touch him. I won't watch OVA because they screw up the basic world rules set in the series (and because the story ended and didn't need any sequels), but I just might end up ffing and watch all the Hotohori parts anyway if I see more pics like this. Angstiness )
