Don't ask what made me think of this, but:J
Y E S
...sometimes Hellsing just happens to my brain, okay? XD;
had me whimpering like an absolute fucking baby; I cannot even tell you how embarrassed I am by this, but blogging for posterity requires honesty in all things. It made me feel hollow and sick and dreadful because apparently that particular form of anxiety is a demon that hangs around to make you emotionally stupid even when you do nothing more strenuous than read about it. This one
was also kind of totally awesome
, and is illustrated by EK, so wins on many levels, including the one that says no one likes Leonardo best
, because no one does, because Leonardo is a shitty ninja turtle.
Unfortunately, now I have to wait another two months for another volume of Shousetsu*Bang*Bang, and more reliably excellent short stories. :( Cry.
In other writing news, there is so much to foreshadow and peel-back-reveal in F&F. It is very difficult to do any of this without jumping back and forth between scenes and time zones like some kind of crazy hyperactive Spriggan.
That said, rereading what I have, uh, rewritten... I am so much happier with this. XD My characterisation has come a very long way.
Speaking of this universe, though: tainted4life
what are our opinions re. mako therapy and human fertility? I want to say that high-class SOLDIERs are altered enough that they're no longer considered strictly human by most genetic processes, particularly given certain things in the absolute plot-vomit that is Crisis Core, but by the same token, it is essentially being infused with further life
, and should this not, you know, improve
fertility? Yes, I am perfectly serious about this. Talk science to me, guys.
(For the record, this came up because Reeve is trying to decide whether mako-infused bloodstreams can actually be passed on genetically, or even whether ciceqi
's amusing little theory about SOLDIERs and blow jobs applies - and, for the record, I think it does. I just cannot believe it never occurred to me before she pointed it out - although given Sephiroth's CC!based whining about donating genetic material, it was only going to be a matter of time. XD)
[EDIT] And now I have Button in the back of my head going, oh, honey, you've picked up the blow glow!
[EDIT] And now I am hunting for the Japanese FF7 script to determine what exactly the word that was translated as "clones" was. Because of course I am having these thoughts at Dad's place, where I do not have FF7 Ultimania Omega.
