Twelve Days Day 8...

December 20th, 2005 (11:37 pm)
productive

current mood: productive

Aha! I get to write this part before ULing the files! *shock*! Anyhow, I definitely have my work cut out for me for tomorrow and the next day by the looks of things. But... if anyone would like to, you can put in a vote for:


99, 100, 102, 103 or 104. Only one though. :P


Beyond that... I was reading vol 17 today and...
while Ren probably doesn't realise it, her harping on how her bond with Akira being real while the bond between Akito and the 12shi isn't is one of the few things she can say that can truly hurt Akito. Especially when you think of what Akira told Akito on his deathbed, and the one thing she'd *thought* had been true until then. Poor Akito. ;_;

Anyhoo... no time to pause for the next few (although I do plan on baking a cranberry cake tomorrow if I get half a chance). :P Close enough... time to UL. ^_^

103 :)
I think that Tohru is the person who hurts Akito the most just because of Tohru's warm relationship with 12shi. Ren told about "the real bond", and I guess Akito is afraid now that such a relationship can become one, and she won't be needed anymore also because of that.
But somehow I don't feel sorry for Akito. She's deserved some punishment for everything that she's done. Even though it was quite understandable... -_-''

^^;; Although I'm thinking about doing a snippet with Nao later. ^___^

Akito's really interesting, and I like her character a lot. Sometimes I want to cuddle Akki (especially chibi Akki), and other times... Defenestration (Pushing someone out a window)? I'm sorry but *that's* seriously going too far Akito... >_

Of course she is interesting. ^_^ Without Akito FB could be a cute and kind comedy. Not bad, but being also a drama is better, I think. *_*
I don't hate Akito or something like that, I just feel sorry for her victims, especially for Haru and Rin. But anyway, she just should be there, she makes the story much more exciting! ^_~

Oh please please please let it be chapter 100 ! *w* Ah, vol 17 is such a great volume, isn't it. My best friend got me the tanko when it came out. So far I have only had summaries to read along but still, how cool. The French book is out in France in April though. Can't wait.

Also, about Christmas specials : I LOVE EIGHTH DAY, I LOVE EIGHTH DAY, I LOVE EIGHTH DAAAAY !!
*Okay, I definitely need to calm down before Boss comes and check on me*
XD I'm SO gonna read at work again, today. I love you. *huggles Shadow-chan*

Cranberry cake ? Wow, sounds yummy. I absolutely have to update you on my last operations in my Christmas baking lab. Absolutely hysterical. Or not.

Love,

Ichi

^^; Looks like you've been out-voted and it will be 104.

Unfortunately, the cranberry cake has taken an unexpected break as I discovered the cranberries went bad. (My bundt pan is also looking fairly beaten up...). >_< Will have to pick up another pack from the store in the next few days, or after Christmas. ^^; But, instead I ended up making the Individual Mint Fudge Cakes... shall see how these turned out later tonight. I didn't pay attention to the recipe (so what else is new??) and didn't notice that it called for using a stand mixer rather than hand mixer. The one thing that I've never bought, is a stand mixer. :o Still, it seems, from the crumb that I stole, to be a not so sweet yet very chocolatey choco cake. I might see about making the choco sauce for it too. ^____^

Do tell what happened in the great Xmas baking lab? It sounds rather ominous from that comment!?

BTW, I realised I'd mucked up on part of the update earlier, but it's all been fixed now. Oops. ^^;;

akito - madness

My vote is for 104 as well. ^_^

Ren has the frightening ability to hurt Akito almost more than anyone else. Knowing what we know now, I wonder if Akito's tears were caused by the fact that she does indeed care for her mother in some twisted way and therefore allows Ren's words to wound her, or if the tears came from the buried realization that, yes, the Juunishi bond may not be the purest bond, especially if it's breaking. I hope we get some clarification on what was going on in Akito's head during some scenes. I also hope Ren hasn't appeared for the last time. In the last panel we saw of her, she was looking upwards and either dropped Akira's box or threw it aside so it broke. Maybe she's ready to move on as well...?

Made it! ^___^

Agreed on Ren. I wonder if it's not a bit of both. Little Akki seemed so sweet that she may well have buried a part that wanted to be accepted by Ren deep inside. But I think it's the weakening bond that gives her more insecurity. Whether Ren's and Akira's bond was "true love" or that strong aside, Akito can't dispute that bond's strength because Akira's gone. There's no way to "see" how strong that bond truly was. Add to that Akira's dying words... she can't argue it.

>>I also hope Ren hasn't appeared for the last time. In the last panel we saw of her, she was looking upwards and either dropped Akira's box or threw it aside so it broke. Maybe she's ready to move on as well...?<<

I think the box slipped from her hands, but... I dunno. I really don't like Ren much. She doesn't strike me as having much in the way of redeeming features. ^^; I'm sort of hoping she's feeling as empty inside as that box was considering all she's done. Given time, perhaps I'd like to see her move on, but for now... gah! ^^; (Maybe Takaya-sensei will do a 10 years later or something similar and show the futures of the various characters in an omake at the end or something). ^___^

akito - hold back a glacier

Yeah, I don't like Ren either. >_> I keep trying to give her a chance, but she keeps showing how nasty she is. I'd like to think there is something sane and mature behind her madness, but we've never seen a side of her that wasn't cruel to everyone but Akira. I mean, Akito is more grown-up than Ren is, and that really isn't saying much. Fighting like children over an empty box... *sighs*

You know, I was thinking Takaya might do an omake like that as well. It would be a nice way to wrap up everyone's stories. ^^

*laughs* It's a really sweet chapter. ^___^ *Just* managed to get it all together. ^^; Shall see if I can get some snippets up too (like all the flower giving in 100?, the bra... 0_0;;, Nao-chan, and Hinata-chan... Lots of really good scenes in Vol 17 & 18. Probably not while the Xmas special is happening though. ^^;;
