Ten Couples that need just "do it." This is inspired by the fact that I've found myself sifting through ff.net (yes, indeed) looking for Sousuke/Kaname stories. Additions? Suggestions?

1. Logan/Veronica, Veronica Mars: Almost two seasons! There are limits to what a girl can stand, especially when the chemistry is as combustible as it is with those two. If slow-dancing together is enough to melt my screen, I can only imagine how hot a real get-together scene would be. Come on, after Dullnut, Veronica deserves a good lover. And wouldn't it be nice for Logan to actually do it with someone he loves and who loves him back for a change?

2. Sousuke/Kaname, Full Metal Panic: OK, a blind mouse can tell that you love each other. A blind, mentally challenged mouse. You love each other, you are available and, oh yeah, you risk your lives on regular basis to save each other. The staring at each other in the rain? The almost kiss in scenic locations? The rescuing, and the jealousy. The waiting up by his door waiting for him to come home (Kaname), or disobeying direct orders to save the other (Sousuke)? Stop teasing me, TPTB! Yes, he is clueless emotionally due to his background, and yes, she doesn't want to take the first step, but take pity on me. Kiss already, at least. Besides, face it. No one else will be able to deal with either Kaname's pushiness or Sousuke's off-the-wallness on a regular basis, so you might as well hook up.

3. Doctor/Rose, Doctor Who: What's a trifling 800+ age difference? And what's a nice bloke of a boyfriend? My newest and shiniest OTP so needs to get it on in the back of the TARDIS, it's not even funny.

4. Lee/Kara, BSG: Oh, my OTP. You came so close. Forget Zack. Forget Baltar. Forget Anders. Forget Dee and the Ho of Doom and the Nameless Girlfriend that Lee left behind to be toasted. From the mini, I thought the two were OTP. And TPTB tease us with looks (eye fucking masters, these two), and the kissing, and the drunken desperate making out. Come on, Lee so clearly wants Kara. And short of being brain-damaged, I see no reason for Kara to prefer Lee Lite (a.k.a. Anders) when she can have the real deal. Let Anders bite the big one (Leoben can sit on him), and Kara and Lee get together.

5. Logan/Max, Dark Angel: Come on. Mutually acknowledged love? Check. Mutually acknowledged hotness? Check. Angst and eye fucking and UST? Check. But where is the seeeeeeeeex? Yes, I know, Max's virus would kill Logan on touch, but come on, full-body condom? Not optimal, but you could get really kinky! Considering how hot it was when he was merely examining her tattoos in latex gloves, the possibilities are endless.

6. Mal/Inara, Firefly: I have such a thing for the two of you. Because honestly, if the UST got any hotter, it would become a health hazard. Eye-fucking is all well and good, and so is the angst, and the unconscious kissing, and the crying after you pushed him in someone else's arms, but I am a greedy, greedy, GREEDY bitch and I want more. Not that I should complain, seeing that I got Simon/Kaylee make-out, but I can't help it. I've fallen for the two of them so hard.

7. Lex/Clark, Smallville: Come on. Sexy woobie gazillionnaire, ogling and befriending a teenage boy? Hot and dumb farmboy exchanging lusty longing looks with said millionaire? On second thoughts, I should take them off the list, because they are so doing it already.

8. Aoshi/Misao, Rurouni Kenshin: I have never seen a man more in need of some sex as a means of de-stressing than Aoshi. And let's face it, killer looks or not, not that many women would want to put up with the full of guilt, driven, serious and issue-laden Aoshi. Plus, Misao loves him and wants him, even though she knows him so well, and that's good enough for me.

9. Fry/Leela, Futurama: Because the poor slob Fry is Everyman. And Leela is Everywoman, if Everywoman was a mutant with one eye, flying a spaceship. Because this is Leela's only chance to make out with a guy a thousand years older than she is. And because Bender could sell the videos. Basically, Futurama rules and I couldn't not mention it.

10. Vash/Meryl, Trigun: Come on, when a Catholic Priest is getting more action with his OTP (and I don't mean Jesus) than you two, it's time to get serious. Vash might be close to immortal, but Meryl isn't. Now that Vash's brother problems have been taken care of (or alternatively, just beginning), it's time to settle down and have some adorable rugrats to boss the Deadliest Man Alive silly. She is into you, you are into her, and face it, you won't find another woman to put up with his baggage or another man to put up with he bossiness.

dangermousie: (Meteor Garden: love by _eyecatcher_101)
Had a delightfully geeky weekend, what with watching Rurouni Kenshin, starting on RahXephon and going to see V for Vendetta. Oh, and I watched a bit of Meteor Garden 2 and Meteor Rain.

I am two episodes into RahXephon and I have little idea of what is going on but I love it. It’s The Matrix meets Neon Genesis Evangelion meets The Silmarillion. And yes, it works.

But now on to Kenshin. I finished the Kyoto arc! Now I’ll take a little RK break, especially since I am confused as to what they animated since I know they didn’t animate the third arc.

So. Much. Love.

Long, long thoughts on the Kyoto arc and every possible character in existence )

Also, Husband and I saw V for Vendetta which was excellent, and beautiful, and intelligent, and Hugo Weaving proved he can be sexy even while wearing a mask, just using his voice and physical movements. I know the mask was supposed to be Guy Fawkes, but there was a Cyrano aspect to it, I think.

Spoilery thoughts on V for Vendetta )

It’s a great movie. It actually has little fighting and when it does, it all has a point. Go see it.

I also ended up watching some Meteor Garden 2 and a bit of Meteor Rain.

Thoughts on MG2 and Meteor Rain )

Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer who linked to [livejournal.com profile] hayden_ew comm, I bring you a lovely Hayden Christensen picspam. Because the boy is GORGEOUS.



Hotness behind the cut )

In completely unrelated news, I definitely jumped ahead and ended up reading the Enishi parts of the RK manga at Borders (and am now reading the translations for yet-unpublished-in-US parts on line) as I know the anime won't cover it.

Thoughts on it, rather Aoshi-centric )

dangermousie: (Kenshin: Just a chance by roninhonor)
"No matter how strong you get, you are only human. There is no need for you to become either a Buddha or a murderer."

I. Love. Hiko. He can definitely fix a lot of Kenshin's issues and his martyr complex. Plus, he has a lot more balanced approach to life than Kenshin's headlong idealism. I think, it's because for all his reserve, Kenshin is deeply passionate (no, I didn't mean it that way, though for all I know, that way too). That's actually probably why he is so reserved.

Also, that moment where Kaoru is outside the hut where Kenshin and Hiko are and she just freezes, and can't knock on the door, and then Yahiko and Misao kick in the door and Kenshin turns and he is startled to see Yahiko and Misao but his eyes just completely go past them and fasten on Kaoru. He whispers "Kaoru...dono" as he sees Kaoru standing there and they just look at each other, and you see Kaoru reflected in his eyes and...guuuuuh.

How can freaking animation move me so? Or be so romantic?

And then Yahiko and Misao are all "what are you going to do, Kaoru? Why did you come? Do you want to take him back to Tokyo, or fight alongside him, or confess your feelings for each other" (is there any need to do the latter? Anyone blind can tell what they feel. Heck, Kenshin can tell what she feels). And Kaoru says she doesn't know, she just wanted to see him once more.

And then Kenshin returns from the river and as he and Hiko walk away for training, she asks him if he is angry they came. And he doesn't have any of his amiable mannerisms or anything like that and he really answers the question, no evasions, or lies, or compliments. He tells her that half of him is angry, but the other half is relieved. And OMG, they are such a huge OTP of mine, it's scary.

ETA: Frak! Aoshi! You not only just allied yourself with Shishio, you said it's OK with you if they capture and torture Okina for info. You know, your fellow Oniwabanshu? They guy you left Misao with, who's taken care of her for years and who she regards as family? Because finding Kenshin is all that matters? This is one hell of a screwed-up priority list: dead people you want to appease or atone to as more important than your living friends and comrades? Grrrrrr. Especially since we get that flashback to when you left Misao in Okina's care and went off with your four followers, and you were one hell of a great guy. Heck, even Shishio and his henchmen can tell you are mentally broken. If you ever snap out of this, you are going to be miserable. On a major scale.

Eeeeek! Aoshi! What the heck are you doing? Don't team up with Shishio. How can you? I love you and having to see you hanging out with someone who looks like he is about to star in "Mummy Destroys Kyoto" would not be good. Not to mention, he is crazy and evil. More importantly, Misao loves you and she probably won't if you go over the Dark Side and you'll break the heart of one of my fave characters. Idiot.

You should follow Okona's advice. Normally I would be cautious about taking advice of someone who wears a bow in his beard but when the alternative is going psycho, it seems kinda a good thing. Yeah, blahblahblah going off the deep end, but you know, there are better ways to deal with your issues: go get drunk, or stoned, or laid, or all three. You are hot and have money, it shouldn't be a problem.

I am all distraught about my favorite eye candy going evil. Because I can't like villains no matter how hot. And there are much nicer ways to have nervous break-downs. Snap out of it. Plus, there is no future in it. Come on, the show is called "Rurouni Kenshin," not "Rurouni Aoshi" so guess who is going to win if you fight Kenshin? Hint: not you. Plus, Misao will kill you. If Kaoru doesn't get to you first. Heck, seeing they bonded, they just might team up.

So give it up. Because I can't see it ending well.

In other news, Hiko-Kenshin interactions are LOVE. And Kenshin begging to be taught the final secrets of HM style is also love. His masks are off, when he is with Hiko.

More importantly, Misao loves you and she probably won't if you go over the Dark Side and you'll break the heart of one of my fave characters. Idiot.

You should follow Okona's advice. Normally I would be cautious about taking advice of someone who wears a bow in his beard but when the alternative is going psycho, it seems kinda a good thing. Yeah, blahblahblah going off the deep end, but you know, there are better ways to deal with your issues: go get drunk, or stoned, or laid, or all three. You are hot and have money, it shouldn't be a problem.

I am all distraught about my favorite eye candy going evil. Because I can't like villains no matter how hot. And there are much nicer ways to have nervous break-downs. Snap out of it. Plus, there is no future in it. Come on, the show is called "Rurouni Kenshin," not "Rurouni Aoshi" so guess who is going to win if you fight Kenshin? Hint: not you. Plus, Misao will kill you. If Kaoru doesn't get to you first. Heck, seeing they bonded, they just might team up.

So give it up. Because I can't see it ending well.

In other news, Hiko-Kenshin interactions are LOVE. And Kenshin begging to be taught the final secrets of HM style is also love. His masks are off, when he is with Hiko.

Why is Pretear called Pretear? Are the characters in that stage right before crying? I want to have a show called "Prehiccups." I did not just purchase the freaking thing on ebay.

Is anyone else excited to have Veronica Mars back? Finally. I am beginning to forget what they look like. Logan is that short African American basketball player, right? The one who always hangs out with the lead, Victoria?

Also, I realized I like samurai anime. Recs? Because I still have over 50 eps of Kenshin to go *watches as massive defriending happens* but I need to plan ahead. I like hot men (even if animated) and fighting. Which makes it no different than my taste in live action. Is that so wrong? Fighting=angst. And violence.

Shantaram is being made into a movie. Except that they would have to condence 900+ pages into two hours. And the fact that I adore Johnny Depp but he is totally wrong. Russell Crowe I can see. Johnny Depp? Not so much. I adore the man but he looks like he'll keel over if you give him a surprise punch, as opposed to someone who escaped out of maximum security prison and feels justifiably confident he can take on a guy with a sword when he has nothing but fists. He played a mob guy in Blow but that was kinda peaceable drug dealing, not gun-running into Afganistan. Though I get to see him tortured, which is always yay (see above point about angst). Also, I am wondering who'd they cast as all the Indian characters, as most of them are Indian. Somehow I doubt Bollywood is about to be emptied of its actors. Though I can so see Rajpal Yadav as Prabakar. And Amitabh as Khader Khan. Add in John Abraham as Abdullah and we are set. But I doubt they'd do that, so what do we have? I know Naveen Andrews is the default Indian the way Ken Watanabe is the default Japanese (heck, default anything Asian) but he can't be cloned...

I should not post after having a huge cup of Starbucks coffee. Too much shaky finger motion. Not to mention scattered thoughts

Rurouni Kenshin has the weirdest credits ever. Really. Come on. So far I've seen 5 sets of credits for it (two opening and three closing) and out of them, I only liked one.

Usually, the credits for an anime (or any other show) correspond to subject matter and I've never been puzzled by 'why' (well, I am mildly puzzled by Ceres having a tastefully nude sex scene in the credits when in the show itself it did the 'fade to black'). For example, Fushigi Yuugi is a show about a girl who goes to a fantasy world and there is fighting and falling in love. So the credits have the romantic and fighting moments and a kinda romantic song. Makes sense, right?

Well, RK is a samurai show. It's a samurai show about a lot of things other than fighting, granted. But. I have no problem with any of the credit visuals. I like them in fact, with their cool combo of fighting, various characters and Kenshin/Kaoru moments. Yay. But the songs? Not only are they bizarre cheery weird sound, but they are all about shmoopy kind of love. All of them. One of them seems to be entirely about making out, which I cannot imagine applying to anyone but the bad guy and his slutty girlfriend as the rest of the OTPs are yet to go to the kissing stage! And another one (in the same vein) has lyrics like "adults won't understand" which leaves me dreadfully confused as unless the song is about Yahiko, it doesn't apply to anyone in the show as everyone is adult. The thought of almost-30-year old Kenshin whining 'adults don't understand me' is...bizarre.

I'm enjoying the Kyoto arc a lot, even though they threw the previous set-up out of the window (being in Kaoru's dojo and doing things as a group). I think they (rightly) felt secure enough in character relationships to separate them for a while. I do miss Kaoru a lot, but since the last ep I finished with she got to Kyoto and bumped into Misao, my Kaoru-draught is about to be over. I can't wait to see Misao-Kaoru interaction. They are rather similar (though Kaoru is a lot more mature and laid-back about big things. She'll fuss about little stuff but the more important things leave her steady. I think it's a difference between having to support yourself from an early age and being a pampered darling of a ninja clan), and the show makes that similarity explicit, when Kenshin says that what Misao says to him at their parting is what Kaoru said to him when he left Tokyo.

The fights continue to be good, but no fight is as interesting as watching Kenshin fight against his own killer instinct. When he fought Vash the Stampede evil look-a-like twin (red coat, white mohawk, weird), TPTB almost got me, as was sure he killed the man and the devastation for Kenshin was amazing. I realized that the reverse-blade sword is a necessity for him because with a real sword he won't be able to contain his personality or blood lust. You could see him operate in purely instinctive mode when he had that real sword in his hands. Kenshin isn't some guy who accidentally did something wrong and is basically a wanderer. Battousai is something he is on a very basic level, and is a part of his personality, something that is intrinsic and natural.

Heeee, Misao and Co are basically deadly, weapons-crazy restauranteurs and hotel keepers? I bet the bills get paid on time by the guests. Does that make Aoshi the bouncer? I love the scene with Kenshin, Kaoru, Yahiko, Misao and Aoshi all passing each other on the street and not seeing each other even though they are looking for someone in the group. I am also beginning to think Aoshi left Misao with Okina because he was worried, with good reason, that he was going to wake up one day with Misao tying him to the bed.

Oh, and I decided I definitely love Saito now. The scene where Kenshin and Misao find out he is married, is priceless.
