Mokona no Yume / Related Car Names

There are a number of characters in Rayearth. I am sure we all assume they must have pasts that include families of some description, but we don't get any of that information in canon.

When inventing families for fanfic, I am sure we all have gone through the various car lists and things. I thought it might be nice to have a thread for collecting related car names to the ones used for the characters.

Yumeiro no Tsubasa / 12 Days of Rayearth Crack
« on: December 28, 2017, 02:51:18 PM »
Down and I (well mostly Down) decided it would be fun to do a crack shipping event over the twelve days of Christmas. A time to share any prompts, headcanons, meta, fic, or art for all the nonsense pairings that don't get as much love during the year.

It's mostly on Tumblr, but we can also make a collection on AO3, if anyone is interested in sharing anything over there.

If posts on tumblr get tagged with "#12 days of rayearth crack" I'll reblog them to fuckyeahrayearth to share with the rest of the fandom.

You can also post links to your posts, or even prompts and meta directly here to share with us.

Honto no Shiawase / Re: OVA FEELS!!
« on: December 15, 2017, 01:03:08 PM »
It has been a long time since i watched the OVA. But I need to review to get a more critical opinion

But honestly, I remember finding it weird. It was not a prequel, neither sequel to the anime, i never understood what's the point? Is there any reason for the alternate story in canon/universe? Was it based on any material of the franchise? Or it was just the producers launching their vision with the characters of a series that was popular at that time?

It is literally what it says on the tin: Original Video Animation 

Basically, it is one complete nonsense AU fic that someone got the money to turn into an actual thing. There are some cool OVAs of some series that can almost fit in with canon, and there are others that just sort of jump the shark.

I love the art and the nonsense of it.  I especially love showing it to new people with absolutely no information about the wild ride we are about to embark on.

I was really ecstatic to find this place, Rayearth is a classic and one of my favorite animes, and i finally found a place to discuss this series that's not tumblr . Thank you so much for this forum!

Welcome! We're happy to have you here. This forum has existed since before Tumblr, and it is my goal that it should outlast it.

Yumeiro no Tsubasa / Griώian and Friώian
« on: December 04, 2017, 09:38:55 AM »
I have a name for the series of fics that all take place in the same universe as the fic Sanctuary that I started ages back. I am starting a new topic for the lot of them.  This post will have a regularly updated link list to both AO3 and FFN, or at least I will try to, as well as a basic reading order list.  Or you can just find them all in order on the series page on AO3.


Enchanted Teen
When Clef said he was going to ‘grow-up’, Umi wasn’t sure what she was expecting, but she definitely hadn’t anticipated how attractive he would turn out to be, or the effect it would have on her.
AO3 and FFN

Good Advice Teen
In which Umi needs advice about a boy, and Clef's not sure he should be the one giving it to her.
AO3 and FFN

Sanctuary Teen(FFN)/Adult(AO3)
When Clef somewhat accidentally invites Umi to stay at his house for a week, it's the start of changes that happen faster than either of them anticipated. Unfortunately, with the laws still in the way, the consequences of that summer may spiral far out of their control…
AO3 and FFN


If you want to discuss this fic series, feel free to add your thoughts.

I made cookies!  I keep trying to experiment to get something like the Little Debbies gingerbread men. I should just give up and try to make graham crackers or something, but these ended up being pretty tasty today.  I'm glad I made them even though they still aren't what I like.

Also!  Moana Reo Moari!  It will be glorious and I am totally getting it on DVD when it comes out. I don't even fucking care!

For those that don't know, the songs are now posted in MP3 as well as ogg, so if you don't have all the music, and you want to listen, you can do so.

I still haven't finished my collection of CDs. I should try to do that.

Romansu no Mori / Re: They Fight Crime
« on: November 30, 2017, 07:29:37 PM »
It still exists and I still love it!

He's a bookish voodoo paramedic on the edge. She's a mistrustful out-of-work queen of the dead with a song in her heart and a spring in her step. They fight crime!

I've looked through everything that I have. I can't find it.  The art looks very on model and the handwriting looks right, so I do think it is CLAMP, but I am not sure.
