Whoa, I actually write a real post (and a bit about HP too)? O_O

Manabi Straight!: Massugu Go!
Yesterday's most interesting realization came to me when I was walking home from work. As they always do. And it was that I should have seen the evil that is Harry/Ginny coming from the moment we first saw, had I realized already then that JKR thinks exactly like I do, except with one minor difference that is also the root of this - she sees things from the girl's point of view, while I see ot from the guy's side. We both seem to like the completely unrealistic first-true-love-from-first-sight. But as a woman, despite Harry being the main character she sees this from Ginny's side, while I was taking Harry's side and hoping for Harry/Cho for quite a long time.

What brought this on was something completely unrelated - finished watching Kanon last night. And is it just me, or are the relationships there (and other similar series) exactly like this as well. Which is something I really liked about it. I've said this already about Angelic Layer - I don't want realistic relationships in my books/anime/whatever. I want exactly this unrealistic first-true-love-from-first-sight you cannot find in real life. I get enough realism here, so let me escape in my fantasies.

Oh, and as you can see, I actually got over my tendency to avoid anything "too popular". Have also started Clannad, and downloaded Air as well. Well, Air was actually first thanks to some silly MyAnimeList recommendation, from there Clannad and Kanon followed.


In other news, approved for the Omoi Haruka fanlisting as well. endless_run - any good ideas for the name? Can't think of anything myself at the moment, and haven't been since I applied for it...

And let's not forget the usual icontest news either - 3rd place at seed_stills, 2nd and 3rd at seed_chorus, and another 2nd place at inu_stillness! :)

You know, that does almost explain the Harry/Ginny thing :/. If it was some shoujo-y "the girl always gets the guy she wants" thing from the point of view of a character that comparitively wasn't even in the series all that much I can almost comprehend it.

Almost.

Rowling just isn't that great at writing romance, cause I was like "WTF was that?!" in the sixth book. Although I was actually hoping for Harry/Luna, ha ha...

Luna wasn't even in the books at first, though, so Harry/Cho it was for me back then. Only later there came Tonks and Luna as other possibilities as well.

Congrats on the placements in the icontests ^^

Sometimes I don't really know what I'd like to see in books I read or movies I watch. Sure... seeing love at first sight and two people getting together despite difficulties is great but... I think I'm getting a bit jealous then :/ Because my own life is like melodrama ^^;

Thanks! :)

Yes, it can be like that as well, but I usually just feel happy for them. Especially when they're characters I really love. ^_^

Now me envies you... I just usually get depressed watching all these stories in which the romance plot is really exposed -.-;

I... also have a tendency to project myself into the story/characters, so instead of getting depressed or jealous when seeing them, it almost feels like it's happening to me.

Never claimed to be sane

:O Now I'm really starting to envy you. Been years since I was able to do it myself :/ Now I rather SEE the story instead of participate in it.

Ah, interesting perspective on the Harry/Ginny thing. Maybe if it were told from Ginny's POV, it'd be less "wtf did that come from?" for the readers? because previously, Ginny had never been mentioned in the books as anything other than Ron's mousy little sister. Honestly, when Ginny started dating the the fifth book, I was like "Whoa. wait. Isn't she like 11?" Then i realized it'd been 3 years since book 2, and everybody had gotten older XD But still, if that were going to be the case, she should have built it more slowly, instead of it being this big "omg I'm in love" thing in bk6 (and 5? I can't remember...) (personally, I never shipped Harry/anyone, since there didn't seem to be any potential pairs. Oh, except Harry/Gabrielle, Fleur's little sister, for some reason. But not so much when I remember she was ten when Harry was 15 XD) Movie 5 made me lean slightly towards the Luna/Harry pairing, though XD

I'm with you, though! Screw realism, I want aishiteru first love, be-together-forever, happy-ever-after in my fiction, I dun care what kind. Shows like Parakiss and Nana bum me out.

Have fun with Air. Best shoujo series ever. *will not cry, will not cry* XD I'm in the process of watching Clannad and Kanon m'self.

Ah, crap, maybe...Nostalgic Melody? or some other generic title XD Sorry, I'm sucking with FL titles at the moment :( Congrats, though! Pre-member~~

And that concludes this extremely long comment, which I apologize for. XD

Air was... interesting. I like it, though. :)
