Just a quick overview of what's being said on some J blogs / sites I looked at today. Since these are fan-girl sites, I definitely make no guarantees about accuracy. I've tried to remove as much of the fangirl squeeing and wishful thinking as possible. Anyhow...:

From Soushuu's site:

Hiro goes to see Akito and tells her that his curse is gone. Akito's reaction is completely different compared to how it was with Momiji.

At school, Haru, Yuki and Kyo are all on the roof. Apparently Akito has ordered all the 12shi to gather. However, the event doesn't take place in this issue. From Yuki's and Haru's reaction, Soushuu wonders if they mightn't have guessed Shigure's feeling and realised that Akki's female. ^^;

Yuki's to tell Machi about the curse?

Shigure goes to see Akito and gives her a present saying "to commemorate our parting". (<-- doesn't seem to be exceptionally significant and they speculate saying good-bye to "male" Akki and that the gift is a female outfit. Actually, another girl speculated that the gift was women's clothing as well).

And finally it's the day Tohru is released from the hospital. And the instant she see's Kyo she runs away!

End banner:
Yuki and Kyo too - a happy future doesn't come if one simply waits so take hold of tomorrow in your hand!

Info from Natsume's blog:

On the way to the hospital Kyo wonders what about when he really loves Tohru and what he likes about her. But once he reaches the hospital and sees her, he realises all over again that he just loves her. However, the instant Tohru sees him, she gets tears in her eyes and runs like mad. Kyo gets depressed seeing Tohru run away like that but, he quickly recovers and runs after her. "I'm the faster runner!" And he finally overtakes her. "I won't let you get away" "Even if it kills me, I want you to be mine."

*****

Every J site I've hit so far is guessing that there are 3 chapters left rather than continuing to 9.

--end FB--

Otherwise, I did manage to get myself off to Future Shop during the afternoon as well as a quick(?) hop to Knit One Chat Too. The female sibling unit picked up some Zara (charcoal) for the Angelina jacket after we discovered that they didn't have any cream coloured Snuggly. She said she'd use something nicer if I'd wear it, so I agreed. Making something simply to make it is okay, but making something simply to make it out of cheap stuff, then if I liked it enough to want it, she'd make me another one out of something nice... @_@

I managed to get some 100% alpaca in 4-ply fingering (cream, dk brown) and so Sam the Ram will have a slight identity crisis being made from alpaca rather than wool. :P Poor Sam.

So, out of curiosity, any knitters going to take part in the Knitting World Cup? I haven't decided if I want to or not. The Knitting Olympics were quite the challenge and seriously took me out of anything but knitting for that time frame. If I do though... maybe I'd do the Lily of the Valley Stole or Sam the Ram. I'm not sure about Sam though since I've never done aran knitting before and I'm working with fingering weight yarn rather than the sport~worsted weight that is called for. I still like the description of Sam made from Lopi though. ^^;;

Heh, tears came to my eyes from reading this post. "Even if it kills me, I want you to be mine." <--- I hope it doesn't come to that! >_< But that quote made me choke up.

I really, really love Yuki and Kyo. ^^

It's more rhetorical that literal so there's little chance of that coming about. But it's nice to see Kyo realise just how much Tohru means to him. ^___^

Yay for Shadow!! I love love love you for this post!! ^^

Go, Kyo!! Yay! (Sorry, I'm spazzing on every single post I see! Heh heh!)

Quotes choked me up too! Still crying...

*sighs* I love this series sooooo much...! ^^

You're awesome. Thanks a lot! ^__^

I'm very happy about Yuki's decision to tell her about the curse, if that's really what he intends on doing. It must have taken a lot of courage for him, considering what happened last time.

^___^

Very true, but given how Machi saw Yuki as being very lonely right from the beginning, maybe it'll be all right? Next chapter sounds like it'll be quite the chapter too! *___*

Aki_chan

Thanks so much for the furuba info. I think I gasped when I read "a gift to commemorate our parting" *gasps again just writing this* but it seems fitting that he would give her women's clothes and maybe she will even show up to the banquet as a girl. That would certainly be bringing things full circle, with all the juunishi enjoying the banquet together with God, as the legend tells.

Ok, I am getting too sentimental. Thanks so much for this info!!!

The Knitting World Cup sounds like fun, if a little stressful. What did you make for the Winter Olympics?

This is what I made for the winter olympics. It was my first ever finished object for knitting. ^^; Looking at the pattern info now (it wasn't available for purchase at that time) it's not recommended as a first lace project. ^^;; I can definitely attest to that, but it was lots of fun (and headaches) to do. ^___^

While I really want to see this chapter, I'm really hoping all the 12shi + cat will be gathered together in the next chapter. *__*

How gorgeous! Oh, what beautiful work. You are so talented :-)

Me too. I had not dared to dream we would see something like that, but the more I think about it, the more it seems to follow naturally as a consequence of the whole plot. What an awesome chapter it would be! If the 12 will be gathered, then does that mean Kureno is coming back for that? *wonders*

I don't think Kureno's "gone" quite yet. The part with him leaving the main house I suspect is still a bit further in the future.

Rin lying (am_loved)

Apparently Akito has ordered all the 12shi to gather.

. . . is it bad that my immediate reaction is to be excited that Rin will likely be shown again, rather than focusing on the chapter itself? Although I guess all the supporting-cast fans will feel the same way. ^^

I do hope Yuki tells Machi about the curse--it's the one dangling thread on that bit of storyline that was specifically bugging me.

*hugs* Thank you!

*laughs* I can't blame you for wanting to see Rin so much. I'm looking forward to seeing so many of the characters again too. ^___^

Yay! Hugs! ^___^

knitius altius fortius (gleefulfreak)

Thank you! *flail* The waiting is killing me!

Knitting World Cup? This is the first I've heard of it. I'm ridiculously tempted by this, especially now that I know how I have to pace myself. And I'm knitting continental, which is *much* faster. *ponders* *cry!*

*hugs!*

I know what you mean about waiting. ^^;; I've been bouncing around here and there looking, but usually have to wait for someone to post them. >_<;;

Yep. I'm still debating if I want to join the World Cup or not especially since I don't remember how long it runs. *laughs* Still *sorely* tempted. You've switched over to continental knitting now? Wow! I remember when you mentioned learning, I tried to knit a few stitches American style. It was really awkward for me so I didn't try to keep going. ^^;;

Actually, seeing your sock icon again... I suppose I could try doing my first pair of socks if I decide to join?? That might be a good project too. I've been a bit intimidated at the thought of socks still. ^^;;

Cheers! ^___^

Okay...now that I am properly done fangirling the picture...you tossed out the Even if it kills me, I want you to be mine. Just...wow...I am amazed. It's would be a beautiful way to end that chapter. I can just see Tohru's face when he says that to her.

I really can't wait for this chapter to emerge...

Ah...but the next one is a whole month away and it sounds like it will be amazing as well.

*laughs* I agree, I really want to see this chapter. ^^;; And I *definitely* want to see the next! All of them gathered together... *___* Oh to have a tardis or some other means to jump through time... :P

akito and tohru are beautiful

Thanks for the summaries of squees. XD This sounds like really nice chapters--a little bit of almost everyone, and the idea of all the Juunishi gathering with Akito is one that I never thought I'd see in anything but my fangirly dreams. ^^

^___^ I have to admit, I never expected Akito to gather them together, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what's to happen and what did happen in this chapter. But... patience is a... ack! Who gives about patience! :P

akito and tohru - stay together always

*laughs* I certainly don't. I'd fast forward my life just to be able to get to the final chapters more quickly. XD

Rin Akito scream

Uwa! This chapter brings on much fangirly sqeeage, and I haven't even seen it yet. ^^ I'm happy everyone is slowly managing to find their peace in life. >.<

I used to knit, but my Mom refused to allow me to continue, because it made her feel old. (?) GOOD LUCK THOUGH!!

Kyo and Tohru things change

Thank you. Made by darkeyedwolf , I've had it forever, but I've been saving it for the special Kyoru moment. This is it's first appearence (that I've used) I beleive. >.<

My Mom is very odd that way, when I was leaving for a Nine Inch Nails concert, she said: "Has long has nothing is injected into your body (like needles, or anything else) you'll be fine." >_>;
