Title: And Knowing That We Are Not Alone
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] ephemeralize, with many thanks
Fandom: xxxHOLiC
Genre: WAFF. Christmas WAFF. And a touch of angst, and something that may or may not possess sharp pointy teeth. But mostly WAFF.
Pairing: Mostly gen, some D/W/H affection of an ambiguous nature.
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Through volume 12
Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] iambickilometer's Carol of the Bells challenge. Issued last year. It was supposed to be D/W. This is why I don't participate in Yuletide.

Yuuko wants a Western Christmas with all the trimmings. Unfortunately for Watanuki, that means an entirely new set of traditions and their consequences. )

Things that have made me fangirl recently:

1) Emilie Autumn - Why did no one tell me about her? Victoriandustrial is pretty much everything I could ask for in music.

2)She and Her Cat - Actually, I've loved this short for a long time, but the first snowfall always reminds me of it, and I have to watch it again.

3) Actual activity on the Kormanslash communities - Eleven posts since the beginning of November! Given that before that, there was one in September and a couple in August, that's doing pretty well. I shouldn't complain, seeing as I have no intention of writing Korman fic at the moment, but it's my smallest fandom, and it makes me happy whenever it proves that it's not dead yet.

4) And of course, the Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations OVA. I would have liked to have had these translations up a month ago, when it first came out, but I've been a bit busy graduating. (It only took, what, five and a half years for two majors and a language? Someday I will learn to do things in moderation. <--- she said with more conviction than she felt.) Anyway:

I don't do a lot of memes, but... Well, I need a break from my database assignment anyway. When it's just an example, they usually let us choose the names and companies and whatever other sample data we need to input, and more than once now I've inadvertently assigned Jeeves to be the president of Baby The Stars Shine Bright, a Japanese Lolita clothing line. While I have no problem with the idea of sticking Bertie in Elegant Gothic Aristocrat, I think Jeeves would beg to differ. Strenuously. Actually, come to think of it, I'm pretty sure that company only makes Sweet Lolita styles, and even I agree that's a horrifying mental image. Anyway, yes. Meme.

...You know, I was working on aikoi some months ago, got annoyed, wandered away, and then completely forgot I hadn't finished it. I really need a keeper. Also, I am somewhat disinclined to translate Sakura songs from now on; you all can do that yourselves, no problem. Just keep this reference list on hand:

dreams
wings
sleep
the memories I haven't recovered
nostalgia/familiarity
want to be with you

Every time there's a new song, jumble the words and phrases together in a slightly different order, and you'll have the gist of it.

On that note, aikoi and Tsuki no Shijima.

Title: The Care and Feeding of Wilsons
Author: Ceaena
Fandom: House
Genre: Humor
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: House/Wilson friendship with a ridiculous amount of innuendo
Timeline: In and around 2.16, so spoilers up to there
Notes: I wrote most of this right after 2.16 aired, from sheer amusement at the setup they so obligingly provided. I actually got around to finishing it off because I'm sick to death of the overwhelming angst they’re giving us now. Unrepentant fluff ahead.


House makes Wilson give him a hand with some research and reports his findings. )

Since it seems the scans might be delayed a bit due to the holidays, here's a summary of Tsubasa Chapitre 121 for those who are just desperate to know what happened (like me - I ran out to the nearest 7/11 in the pouring rain at an ungodly hour this morning to get this thing!).

I wasn't really intending to translate the Horitsuba drama CD (at least not anytime soon), but... Well, I really didn't want to do my homework. Amazing what a motivating factor that is, isn't it?

Tsubasa today - the second season opening and ending. I have to say, IT'S really grew on me (but then, I like Kinya; his songs are usually fairly generic, but they have good energy), but Kazemachi Jet... not so much. As always, my Japanese is far from perfect and any suggestions are welcome.

Title: In a Yellow Wood

Fandom: xxxHOLiC/The Last Unicorn
Chapter: One-shot
Warnings: PG, probably. Not intended to be actual femmeslash, but if you're violently allergic to that, you might have issues with this.

I finally got around to finishing the Sanagi lyrics the other day. Much love for whoever scanned the movie fanbook, since that's where I got the kanji sheet. Much love for this song, too!
