It's been such a long time - I MISSED YOU GUYS!

Oh, well. Here I am - again.
I'm suddenly feeling nostalgic - why do I miss Rayearth right now? Why Fuu, Hikaru and Umi are haunting my mind after such a long time? I think I've always kept all the characters in a secret little place within my heart. Always, since I read the manga so many years ago. They're always there. And sometimes, that little hidden place starts beating faster and faster - that's when Rayearth feels come back. Like a flood. And it's beautiful <3

"Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails. It's just so heartbreaking and soulbreaking and devastating and - I can't handle it.
One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard and cried to. I can't even describe it.
Trent Reznor is unbelievably amazing.

I'm so sad I missed the rewatch last year! :'(
Let me know if you're planning a new rewatch soon. I'll try to follow the schedule next time  ;)

Rainy. Cloudy. Chilly.
Everyone is complaining about this kind of weather, but I really like it - I do love autumn and winter  ;D
Autumn came quite late. It was way too hot last month.
Well, I actually feel a bit sick (sore throat/cough), but it's fine. Winter is coming  8)

Just a random thought...

Hikaru's star sign is Leo: a fire sign.
Umi's star sign is Pisces: a water sign.
Fuu's star sign is... Sagittarius: a fire sign!

Why not an air sign?! Did CLAMP choose Sagittarius because of its symbol - the Archer/the Arrow?

Hello, Milady! Hello, Shiidou Hikaru (hey, I'm a Potterhead too haha)! Nice to meet you  ;D

Himitsu no Kimochi / Re: Alcyone: A hated character in MKR
« on: January 13, 2018, 08:40:41 PM »
Yeah, as just about everybody has said in some way or another, Alcyone is just a flat character whose only character trait seems to be that she’s obsessed with a guy who’s not into her, and rather than fleshing her out, the anime just chose to double down on it.

Things they could’ve done to make her more interesting: Actually explain why or how she got to be so obsessed with Zagato. Like, we know she learned magic from Clef to protect Emeraude, is that how they met? Other than maybe thinking he’s good-looking, just what draws her to him enough that she wants to die with him? Did he ever do anything nice for her? Did someone else hurt her? Is this the latest in a string of bad relationships (or non-relationships) that just makes her give up hope for ever having a good one? Has she always had these kind of obsessive tendencies?

Still not my least favorite, though. That spot’s reserved by Sierra, for being a giant plot hole badly disguised as a character. Like, Alcyone might be one-note, but at least she’s remotely plausible.

I completely agree.
Well, she is a shallow character, and that's quite disappointing, because I suppose that if she behaves like that, she must have a really tragic/troubled/creepy/very emotionally disturbed past. You can imagine a really depressing story behind her violence, her insane, unrequited love and her self-destructive behaviour.
I mean, why is she so obsessed with a man who clearly doesn't care about her? A man who is deeply in love with another woman to the point of destroying the entire world? Alcyone knows that, but nevertheless she tries uselessly and desperately to earn his attentions. She humiliates herself in vain. He treats her cruelly. In the manga, he kills her. I never disliked her, even when I was a child: I just feel sorry for her.
How did Alcyone and Zagato meet? Why is she fighting for him? Maybe she's convinced herself that even though he will never love her, at least he will admire her, and this is worth dying for. Maybe she has nothing else to live for. Maybe she's alone, she's been abandoned and she feels betrayed. She has lost something very important and she's blinded by rage and hate. Her magic is ice-based... and so is her heart.
Maybe Zagato saved her when she was in danger... And in that moment she has idealized him and clinged on to him, beacuse she was completely lost and thought that no one ever cared about her...
Moreover, what did happen between her and Clef?
Even though her dress is pretty awful (she is so beautiful in her evil/witchy way, though), I don't hate her. Because I think she's desperate, shattered and hopeless. And, most of all, she is alone.

On the contrary, Sierra is just nonsense.

The idea of using the manga in order to create those bouquets is wonderful. It really shows how much this manga has changed your life, in a way - did you and Down meet each other thanks to Rayearth? This is so romantic, I'm melting <3
RAYEARTH CHANGES LIVES - I want to hug my manga right now XD

We did! (Mils invited me to the forum and we kept talking! With one gap of several years where I had a nervous breakdown but then came back to fandom and we started talking again, and then met in real life because Mils invited herself to come stay with me, and ended up... actually dating...)

The bouquets Mils made are amazing. <3

Your story is really amazing and I feel so happy for you both! I want to hug you haha! :D

A Lantis prompt for someone else, because I have the worst time trying to write either Lantis or smut:

Lantis keeps accidentally interrupting people in the heat of the moment while going about the castle. (Brought to you by that one scenario collection comic)

Well you know, the way his happy ass just waltzes into my fics, I might as well get around to him waltzing in on somebody doing it, piff A part of my brain thinks an Eagle/Umi fic with this would be hilarious, but maybe set in the AU I share with royalblk on tumblr, haha but then I also think the more awkward the pairing, the more hilarious him walking in on them might be, IDK This is going right up there on my list with Eagle and Fuu getting drunk!married in Vegas fic I still must write.

How about Lantis walking in on Eagle and Fuu drunk in Vegas?:D
I love Lantis. That's all XD

aww this event is so exciting, I really loved to join but i'm not sure i can do fan fictions...  :'( (I do have some wild imaginations but i find it hard to put it in flowery words)

I was contemplating the idea of taking part in the Fanfic swap too, but I've never written a fanfiction... I love writing, but I don't know whether I'd be able to write a fanfiction! :-[
We should join in next time! :D

I look forward to watching Rayearth again! It will be fun to comment on each episode with you guys!
I still don't know whether I'll be able to join you every time, but I'll do my best  :)

Ahahah, yesss we're still here! It's so great, isn't it? I love how a story, a manga in this case, can unite people from all over the world. Rayearth has "changed" our lives, in a way... We're still thinking about it, we're still imagining incredible stories about how it should have ended or how it could go on after the ending of the second series. We love those characters and we like to fantasize about their inner developments, their backgrounds, their relationships.
Even if you're a Clemi fan, I'm sure we'll get along well.  :D

@Milieva: EXACTLY! Eyes, hair, face, style, everything - Clef is so COOL and AWESOME in the OVA! I can really ship Clef and Umi in the OVA  :D

@Eizme: ahahah, your're right: the original Clef is too short  ;D In the OVA, he's definitely more handsome and charming. I had a crush on him when I was a child - actually, he was my third MKR crush: Ferio was the first (of course!), Eagle was the second, and then Clef in the OVA! Now I think Zagato could be the fourth one, I like him more than Lantis  ;)

@Suzanami: I completely agree with you: Umi (as the other two girls) was forced to grow up too early compared to normal teenagers. As regards age difference, I guess that's not so important in MKR universe - just because time in Cephiro is different from time in our world. You can't compare the passing of time in two different worlds, I guess. I think Cephirans have much longer lifespans too (like the Elves? ;D), so I don't know how much it makes sense to complain about the age difference between Umi and Clef, or Fuu and Ferio. Ascot is younger than Umi, but I think he's shown how much he can change and mature quickly thanks to the experiences he has lived in season 1; thanks to the knights, of course, and Umi in particular. He was a child, now he's a boy. After what happened in MKR 2, I'm sure he's going to turn into a man  :)

Hello, Eizme! Welcome! Nice to meet you! :D It's never too late to join the fandom! My OTP is Fuu/Ferio, but I also like Ascot/Umi or even Eagle/Umi  ;D Hope you'll enjoy it here!

OK, I've been obsessed with Rayearth for maaany years so far and I joined this fandom about a year and a half ago (if I remember well), so it's time I say something about this apparently very popular pairing. I've never, I mean, never thought about UmixClef as a possible canon pairing. Strange, isn't it? I mean, the first time I read the manga, I immediately - and totally - shipped Umi and Ascot. I still do, actually. I just didn't like the way the anime of MKR 2 has dealt with that, while suggesting a possible romantic relationship between Umi and Clef. I still find that quite disappointing, but that's just my humble opinion - I don't want to start a fight! ;D Two or three years ago, when I discovered the world of, I was really surprised to find out how many people support the pairing UmixClef! I was like: what?! I would never ship them!
Maybe, that's because I literally adore the idea of Ascot falling in love with Umi and vice versa, and the lovely scenes in the manga where these two characters are alone and share something together are so cute. They're maybe sharing just a few fragments of time; just a little conversation; just a few looks at each other. But I just loved that. I fell in love with them  :D
There is a hint of a possible romantic involvement between Umi and Clef in the manga as well, but that's a possibility that has never attracted me. I don't fell anything about them being together as lovers.
I must admit that this opinion of mine has changed a bit when I watched the OVA, but the reason is quite simple: Clef is gorgeous in the OVA! ;D
