First of all, can anyone beta my yuletide fic for me? Can't really say the fandom publicly, but I'll probably know if you know it if you offer. General beta offers welcome too. :)




There is a WEISS KREUZ meme going around, so I can't resist that.

Which songs remind you of pairings and characters from WK?

Depeche Mode - Precious [YouTube]

"...If God has a master plan
That only He understands
I hope it's your eyes He's seeing through..."

[Full lyrics here]

This is definitely Farfarello's song. Casts him as a victim (which is how he sees himself anyway) and there are religious overtones. Could apply to other characters, most obviously Ken or Omi.

Depeche Mode - Damaged People [YouTube]

"...We're damaged people
Drawn together
By subtleties that we are not aware of
Disturbed souls
Playing out forever
These games that we once thought we would be scared of..."

[Full lyrics here]

Playing The Angel is a good Schwarz album, but this song is my Schuldig / Crawford theme.

Voltaire - When You're Evil [YouTube]

"...And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life you see
The devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need..."

[Full lyrics here]

Schuldig. :)

X-Japan - Kurenai [YouTube]
・・・紅に染まったこの俺を 慰める奴はもういない
もう二度と届かない この思い
閉ざされた愛に向い 叫びつづける・・・

[Full lyrics here]

How is this NOT an (all-purpose) Weiss song? This time, more Weiss-side than Schwarz-side, for once.

Bauhaus - Sanity Assassin [YouTube]

...Sinister echoes clutching at straws
Letter boxes screaming
You try to pin him to the wall
You end up on the ceiling
Locked in a dome
The shadows flicker by
He's the madcap pusher
Delerium the drug he's dealing...

[Full lyrics here]

Aya x Mailbox! Could possibly be a Schuldig song too though. :)

Silver Ash - Gorgeous Devil [YouTube]

犹豫瞬间露出了狰容 又在瞬间消失无影
诱惑嘴角露出了笑容 就在瞬间将我禁锢
Showing a ferocious expression in a flashing moment of hesitation / Then vanishing it in the next moment
Showing a smile on the corner of the seductive lips / Imprisoning me in an instant

[Full lyrics here]

Another Schuldig song. Must be the kind of music I listen to. (Relying on translations of this song found on the internets for this one though...)

Gary Jules - Mad World [YouTube]

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher, tell me, what's my lesson? <-- Aya: "Murder and deat-- oh, I mean 'history'."
Look right through me, look right through me

[Full lyrics here]

This one got a bit overplayed. In fact, I almost forgot how much I loved it and connected it with WK because I overplayed it too. I think mostly of Sena for this one, but could work for almost any Gluhen character.

Other anime (all go to YouTube links):

Pet Shop Boys - Go West (Saiyuki)

Too obvious?

Pet Shop Boys - West End Girls (Ai no Kusabi)

I got nothing. The synthesisers make it sound like eighties sci-fi, but it also feels kind of dirty, which matches the setting. Also it's really gay.

Dead Can Dance - The Carnival Is Over (Kuroshitsuji)

About a circus leaving town. Guess which story arc I'm thinking of?




I forgot to mention that I read Kuroshitsuji 8. I bought it in the same week it came out and that was quite some time ago.

Anyway:

  • Great end to the Circus Arc. I love it when this book surprises me and when Meilin was revealed as a sharpshooter, that was definitely cool.
  • The best bit was when the usually senile Tanaka was comforting Lizzie in the bedroom.
  • Grell is coming back.
  • I don't know what to make of Ronald. I want to see more of the shinigami world, but he irritates me. It's strange, because I like characters like Youji. Having said that, love his character design and will have to see more to pass real judgment. STILL feel weird for liking William, but I'll get over it.
  • The last chapter wasn't interesting. It left us in the middle of a plot arc and seeing the characters doing 'typical English things' is not interesting to me. So there's this thing called 'Easter', you say...? Also, the talk of Ciel's proportions is designed for a particular type of fangirl's neuroses. Meh. Probably the worst chapter so far.
