Convolutions of an Evil Mind
Along with the hot chicken soup and ibuprofen....
... a nice little dose of smut and shounen-ai helps me feel a wee bit better.

I staggered off to the grocery store to make a food run, and made a side trip to the local Borders Books and grabbed the latest BLU release, "Wild Rock". Pretty and yummy, but way too short. ::wistful sigh::

Got my shipment from Sasuga Books -- Wild Adapter 4; Trinity Blood 5; and last, but definitely not least, Silver Diamond 7! God, how I adore Silver Diamond's mangaka Sugiura Shiho! ::happy sigh:: She does the most wonderful mix of understated male-male bonding, angst, drama, and comedy -- unfortunately, some of the more hilarious scenes made me laugh aloud, which really hurt my chest and stomach muscles (due to excessive cold-related coughing).

And for a final bit of lacivious enjoyment, someone posted a hilariously kinky bit of Sephiroth X Cloud dollporn on myprettypuppet aptly titled "The Property of Sephiroth" ::feeble cackle:: ::clutches aching ribs:: Owwww.....

I already have the AC Sephiroth action figure. I think I really need to order myself the AC Cloud. ^_-

Current Mood: sore sore

Was caught by a fit of nostalgia and dropped in on your site. (Confession: There was a point--wow, five...six years ago(?!) when I checked obssessively to see if Dominion Road was updated.)

Anyway, I was really happy to see your post about Silver Diamond because Sugiura has been underappreciated for so long. She's brilliant! <3

I love her reversals on BL conventions like "seme/uke", e.g. the power dynamics between Chigusa and Rakan and Narushige. (--Seriously, as of book 7: any hope of canonical threesome??)

(Also much love to Kou!)

If anything, I think the seme/uke comparison only rings a bell in her stories because she loves visual and structural contrast so much: the tall, blond soldier with glasses; the shorter dark-haired scholar *in charge.*

Have you read her other series, Koori no Mamono Monogatari, aka Ice-Cold Demon's Tale at all? It's the series that sucked me in all those years ago. Sugiura is the only mangaka who will have me happily buy a 26-volume series instead of just borrowing it from the local manga rental place. Blood and Ishuca are my true loves, writing-wise, however tepid the affair may be.... ^^;

Haaa, oh man, sorry for writing an essay in your comments page...! ^^;
