I got LaLa yesterday but was only able to start reading it & come online to make a post now.
I'll be back later for a proper post with more images etc. as soon as I have a moment, but for now I just HAD to rush and post it the moment I could finally go and open the mag.
When I saw the cover, I knew it needed to be shared immediately. 8D~~
Click to see a GIANT version of it. :D
Wallpaper away!! Do as you please~!! ♥ (Just please credit the scan.)
Sure, Yuuki is there too so it's not yaoi (it's lovely threesome though! XD ♥ *so happy*), but... ZERO AND KANAME, TOUCHING HANDS!! 8D *DIES OF HAPPINESS*
And the book cover!! GYAH!! It's completely yaoi hahahaha!! "Kaname vs Zero", it says... More like Kaname x Zero / Zero x Kaname, hahaha~~~ XD *epic fangirling in progress*
The episode is as full of drama as ever, but there's also IMMENSE FANSERVICE. ♥
Spoilers: ( Spoilers under the cut, it got a bit longer. I'll come back later with a lot more pics and a summary + translations of lines + commentary as usual. :DCollapse )
More spoilers and a ton more pics when I have a moment to come back and make a proper post. :D
Edit to add:
Also, the Chinese scanlation is out and Senbyafanatic already has translated the chapter from their scanlation too~! :D♥
So fans are super lucky with how extremely early everybody is this month~!♥♥♥
Edit to add also: I scanned a huge version of the volume 16 cover image too! :D
The small version doesn't do it justice!! *-*
Click here for the big version. :D
I can die happy now. XD *rotfl*
Well, once I have the volume in hands, with that sexy cover. 8D *can't wait for it to be out* It's on May 2nd, btw! :D♥
ZERORIN'S SEXY PARTED LIPS AND FANG PEEKING OUT FGYAAAAH~~! *death from dehydration after drooling too much* AND KANAME-CHAMA'S SEXY SIDE-GLANCE~!! Looking so sort of vulnerable...8D~~~ The inside blurb advertising the volume said "which of of them is wearing a mask...?!" (for drama, though both are, metaphorically speaking, hahaha XD)... 8D
*fangirly drooling, dies from more dehydration & nosebleeding imagining Zero x Kaname from that cover* And those ball masks!! *mind is gone into yaoi-lala-land with scenes of a masquerade ball in which they meet, masked and officially incognito, and have a torrid affair, fufufufufu~ *so much moe* 8D~~~~~~~~
Edit to add yet some more: Now I scanned the page where it looks like they're about to kiss. 8D~~~
( Under a cut in case it's spoilery. I cropped it to focus on that scene though.Collapse )
...I already wanted to try and find time to release VK doujinshi this year, now I'm more fired up than ever, kyah~~~~~ 8D *bounces everywhere all hyper*
*currently feeling so happy that face hurts from smiling too much at all the fanservice* XD XD ♥♥♥
EDIT some more: I had to photoshop that pic, I just had to. XD XD *couldn't resist*
It's just a messily done one, but now Zero & Kaname are kissing for real. XD XDD *lol*
( Parody pic this wayCollapse )
Vampire Knight yaoi! Kinky fridays #2~! :D♥ (Once more posted on a random non-friday day. XD;;; ORZ)

music: "I want your bite" (trashy but so vampire-like XD)
Hi everybody~!♥ Here I am with another installment of the VK Kinky Fridays~!♥♥♥ :D
If it continues that way I should just rename it to "Vampire Knight Kinky random day" since I always end up not having time and not posting it on the day I meant to. XD;;; This week it's on a tuesday... ORZ
But oh well, nevermind that. XD
If you saw last week's post, you already know about the "♥Vampire Knight Kinky Fridays♥", a kinky fandom thingie I'm hoping to do either once a week or every two weeks or so, in which I post a bunch of kinky yaoi or non-yaoi sketches and people are welcome to either post their own VK sketches too or share any VK fic ideas/plot bunnies/ fun VK situations etc.♥ So we can all have fun together. ^-^/
Yaoi bunny-boy Kaname. X3
It's an 18+ mini-event thingie, since hardcore yaoi sketches etc. get posted.
VK is already normally targeted at late teens anyway in most countries, but if you're younger/not of the legal age to view such contents in your country, please don't look at the Kinky Friday posts. ^^;
By clicking/viewing the post, you acknowledge you're of the legal age, and it's on you, I already put the warning that it's hardcore inside etc. XD;
I also make non-yaoi and yaoi-ish-but-safe-for-all-ages posts that everybody can view without having to worry about their eyes catching on fire. ^^; Just... lately I didn't have time to finish any non-pervy fanarts. XD;
(Actually the reason why I came up with the VK Kinky Fridays was because lack of time to finish full color pics often gave me the idea to post the messy sketches etc. instead, rather than almost never posting. ^^)
But sometime I'd like to do a sketch dump of innocent piccies too. :D♥
But for the time being, we're in yaoi-land, and here's the second installment of the VK Kinky Fridays~!! :D♥♥♥
(VKKF welcomes also het pics etc., it's just that the ones currently posted are mostly yaoi. XD)
This week things are much busier (the whole second half of the month usually is ^^;) so for now I won't be opening free sketch requests just yet, but I'm here to post some new thingies, as well as the results of last week's VK Kinky Friday, which yielded quite a harvest of yaoi since people had various interesting requests. :D
(I'm still working on finishing some of the ones from all the lovely people who asked for stuff last week ^^/ *will finish the others as soon as possible*)
But if you want a free sketch, keep tuned since I'll be reopening them as soon as I have a bit of time. ^^/
Maybe it will be after the VK chapter coming out, or maybe sooner.
For now, here's last week's piccies. :D
So if you like Vampire Knight yaoi, come on this way~! :D
( VK Yaoi infestation this way. XDCollapse )
*hopes you all enjoy the post, if you like yaoi/kinky fanarts* \^-^/ ♥
Not sure if the next VK Kinky Fridays will be late or what, since I probably won't have time to do both the VK chapter summary + commentary and VKKF... ^^;
But as soon as I can, I'll be back with more of it. :D That and post last week's other request pics I didn't get to draw before. :D
And the next one will probably be open for free requests again, though maybe not as many as last week's one... or maybe as much. Not sure yet.
So if you want a free piccie, stay tuned~! ^-^/ ♥

music: Sparta - "The Most Vicious Crime"
Edit to add: More fanarts added to the post. ^-^/ ♥
I'll be adding the sketch requests as I draw them (I'll post them in replies to the comments), so come back to check the post every so often if you'd like to see them~!♥
Hi everybody~! \^-^/ ♥ *is all happy and fangirly today
I have some more time at the moment and so I FINALLY got to update my Zero x Kaname fanfic series, "Cradle of Blood"! :D *bounces happily at finally getting to post it*
Cradle of Blood - Chapter 25: “A lie Into the sweetest truth… ”
(Warning: Yaoi, Zero x Kaname, Hurt/Comfort/Romance fic, mature rating)
I even drew a commemorative quick piccie for the 'finally updating!' moment. XD
(Although it is very random since most of the elements in the pic don't match what actually
happens in the chapter. XD;;; *should have drawn something more accurate to the contents* XD;;)
Like where he is wounded and where he isn't and stuff. XD; *just doodled randomly*
Click if you'd like to see the full version of the pic. ^^/
AU. Ten years after the vampires lost the war, the world is ruled by the hunter supremacy and vampires are only kept alive to serve as pleasure slaves in brothels. Everyday is a nightmare for Kaname, until he meets a certain silver-haired hunter… ZxK KxZ
Please don't click if you're underage or dislike yaoi and/or dark themes in fanfiction. ^^;/ (CoB is a pretty dark AU fic, with a world that's rather brutal to vampires. ^^;;)
Otherwise, if you don't mind such themes etc. in fics, I hope you'll enjoy the chapter~! X3 ♥
The other part of this post is
This post is the first installment of a new idea I had, the Vampire Knight Kinky Fridays~! :D
(They'll just be called that way for now by lack of a better name, even though it won't be always posted on fridays. *failure* XD *had the idea on a friday and couldn't think of a nice memorable name* XD;)
Only named that way because it sounded less odd than "vampirturday" or something terrible like that. 8D *is shot*
Caturday is awesome, but it just doesn't work the same for vampires. XD
Please ignore the text, this is the cropped preview I made for the Japanese fandom, I forgot
to save an English version of it, but the full size later in the post has an English version.
More COB!picstuff of Zero x Kaname in this post also. ^^/
And for once also, some Kaname seme x Zero uke instead
of Zero x Kaname! ^^
The VK kinky fridays might not have a new post each week since it would depend on having time and all, but the idea is that every so often, I'd make one of these posts and it would be a
Lately I rarely have been posting fandom stuff due to lack of time to do elaborate full-color pictures often, but I miss the VK fun so much, and so I'm hoping to post more often if it's to make sketch dumps & fic idea ramblings, rather than actual finished full pics or full fics since that takes more time to complete and thus gets updated more slowly... That way I still post the more elaborate stuff whenever possible, but in between I'm hoping to make little posts like this with messier stuff and fun fangirling VK with everyone and exchanging lovely mind images taken from our fic ideas/plot bunnies etc. in comments here. :D
So the VK kinky fridays are basically a happy box-garden for us all to get together and dump out fic ideas/plot bunnies/quick sketches and simply fangirl VK and go wild talking about the various ideas etc., in the comments. :D
That kind of talk + fic ideas and pics etc is always welcome in all of my posts anyway, but the idea behind those friday posts in particular is that it would be a special area where we could all post about all sorts of hardcore things without worrying about an innocent readers passing by and stumbling on it by accident. :D
There will be a bit more to it than just that, btw. :D *had some ideas for fun stuff*
I'd like to make those posts more entertaining and engaging for everyone, so whenever I have enough time for that, I'll offer to draw quick/simple free VK sketch requests for the first few people to comment in the post. :D
I have more time this week, so for now I'll tentatively say:
I'll draw free VK sketches for the first 10 people to comment on this post with a sketch idea. ♥♥♥ ^-^/
(I'll post them in the comments as the post goes.)
That way, I figured it would be more fun for everybody than just talking about plot bunnies etc., since people dropping by will have a chance of getting a free sketch of whatever VK setting they might like, if they arrive early on. :D
NOTE: Due to the nature of a post centered on kinky explicit yaoi pics, please do not view this post and the fanarts if you are under the legal age for such a thing in your country. ^^
By viewing this post/the pics, you acknowledge that you're of legal age and not offended by it.
If you are either underage or hate pervy fanarts, please enjoy instead the posts that I make that are safe for a broader age etc. ^^;/ (*tries to post the pervy pics and the normal pics separate so that people can view the posts according to their preference etc.*)
( More on the VK kinky fridays + various pics here under the cut. :DCollapse )
*hopes you all enjoy the post, if you like yaoi/kinky fanarts* \^-^/ ♥
And if yaoi etc. isn't your cup of tea, hopefully you'll get to enjoy the non-yaoi post(s) when I have time to make some about the upcoming VK mascots etc.* :D ♥
*will be back later to draw piccies etc* :D
Vampire Knight manga chapter 81 scans & summary + Zero & Kaname chibi mascots news +fangame stuff ^^
Mar. 23rd, 2012 | 03:27 pm
I couldn't resist messing with the chapter cover to make this little preview of the two sexy vampires standing nearby. X333 ♥♥♥
If we enjoy the sexy fanservice, the agonizing dramatic canon eases away somewhat... XD; *lol*
Another month during which I ended up not getting to post anything on my LJ. ^^;; ORZ
At least I got to go read a few bits of fics here and there and some stuff, but not much. D: *has so many lovely series to catch up on, especially the multi-chaptered ones that need more time to savor*
I did get a bit of time this month after all, but I figured that if I were to come online properly and start fangirling VK, that time would disappear quickly, so instead I just stayed offline and used that time up to write more of my Zero x Kaname fic, "Cradle of Blood", and to work on making chibi-VK mascots!!♥ :D
Chibi-Zero glares at us. XD He is jealous of people poking his Kana-chan.
(More on that later in this post.)
Onto the new VK manga chapter, VK 81 had the usual epic dramatic build ups and the also usual (at least usual for a while now...^^;)
It's nothing at the level of the series best moments (delicious chapter 30 ZxK drinking scene, anyone?), but considering the starvation of Zero & Kaname fanservice we've been put through for such a long time, this chapter was APOTHEOTIC. 8D
So much so that it had me drawing pervy fanart within minutes of reading LaLa. XD;; *only had time to do a messy sketch so far, but will try and do a clean version later and post it sometime* :D
There were also some very angsty but deliciously moeable moments for fans of Kaname x Yuuki and Zero x Yuuki, but I almost forgot I also fangirl those pairings due to how hardcore I was fangirling the Zero & Kaname fanservice aspect. XD;;;
So without further ado, here's a chapter summary +commentary & ramblings and some delicious scans. *__*/♥♥♥
Warning: LOTS of Zero x Kaname fangirling, some mild amounts of Zero x Yuuki and Kaname x Yuuki fangirling.
Nothing explicit though... but if you are allergic to anything implying or mentioning man x man mind images or multiple-pairing-fangirling, err... you might break out in hives. XD; *lol*
There's a, err, normal summary (XD; well, at least with not a lot more yaoi than usual), but by the end of the post things degenerate faster and faster into mind images of Zero & Kaname rolling around on the ground tearing each other's clothes off (XD;;; my idealized way the rest of the manga should be *lol*), so if you dislike yaoi, you might want to skip once the summary itself ends, and just scroll past the fangirly fit to go to the rest of the post about the VK game stuff etc. XD;
( Vampire Knight manga chapter 81 stuff this way. :DCollapse )
Edit to add: It turns out there's a place that scanlated the chapter super early (though I don't know if they did it from the Chinese scanlations that tend to show up early or from an actual Japanese raws, but in any case, it's totally awesome that they're posting so early). ^^♥
Here's a link yo their site, Dragon & Fly Scans. :D
And as I promised at the beginning of this post, I also have news about the adoptable VK chibi mascots I'm making. :D♥
The long awaited Zerorin chibi mascot should hopefully come out sometime this year, and should be even more cute and interactive than it was originally going to be, btw~ :D Thanks to err, technology advances. XD *lol* As in, I have been figuring out how to make various cute thingies. X3
I can't say yet when anything might get ready since due to lack of time I have no idea, and don't want to disappoint people by announcing it and then not being able to release things on time. ^^;;; *wanted to have released Zero ages ago already, but lack of time + I kept changing him happened*
But there will also be other adorable surprises~! \^-^/ More Z&K mascot stuff, if all goes well~!
For now here's at least an actual moving sneak peak of something from one of the planned mascots... :D
Please ignore that they currently look crappy. XD;
This is still a draft because I'm not yet done drawing them, I just did a rough mock-up to animate them. I don't use references of live action people walking etc. for the chibi animations, since it wouldn't look right for chibies, so I have no choice but to draw it several times and animate things over and over until it looks cute and how I wanted it to be. ^^; So I do the rough tests first, and when the mascot works fine/the animations are cute, I do the final versions of the pictures drawn for it. :3
( A bit more about the mascots this way. :DCollapse )
As for CoB (my Zero x Kaname fanfic series), I'm so hoping that I might be able to update this month, for real that time since last time I said that it seems time flew by. ^^;
Chapter 25 of CoB is almost finished, but it still needs some last chunks in various parts of it etc., + I usually take a while in finishing details. ^^;
But on the good news side, it's ridiculously long. So hopefully that makes up a bit for the lateness of being updated. ^^;
I wanted to also make a better update with more details etc. about "VK - Love³ -", the VK fangame which I'm making (the one where you get to play as Yuuki and try to get the guys, or push them towards each other X3), but lack of time makes that I'll have to postpone such a better post again. ^^; Another time. :D
It's going slow, but hopefully it will be enjoyable once it's finally ready~! :D
For now here's at least an older screencap I did of the way a page in the CG gallery in the game will look like:
As you play the game, you unlock the CGs, which you can then later look at in the CG gallery part of the game, so that you can see your favorite moments again without having to play through all over again each time. ^^
Though it's empty at the beginning, of course, before you unlock them. That screencap was just to show the layout of the gallery, with a couple of example empty thumbnails. ^^
( Not a full post about it, but here's some more info about the game. ^^ Collapse )
It's not exactly a 'normal' type of romance game. XD (Well, aside from the obvious since the heroine can get a thresome ending or try and get the guys to turn the game yaoi instead. XD XD *lol*)
Unlike in most romance games like that, Yuuki has to worry not only about winning the guy(s)'s hearts, she also has to be careful because she can die if you mess up. XD Shockingly often in some cases, like by getting attacked by level E's or getting in accidents etc.
After all, it's a vampire story in a world full of dangers, rather than a normal school romance in a safer world. :3
(The guys can die too, but less often/not the same way as Yuuki. XD;; VK is angsty... but luckily in the game at least you can save every so often and go back to your previous save point if someone dies. XD)
Depending on how you do, the game can have full happy ends (the 'perfect endings' for the trio and each of the pairings you can go for, such as Yuuki with either of them, or the guys together with each other)), or intermediate endings (pairing-related endings that are partial good ends and partial bad ends), or terrible bad ends... as well as some crack endings. XD
You have to make things flow smoothly so that Yuuki gets the pairing she wants without upsetting the balance of things. :D
So hopefully it will be fun. ^-^/ ♥♥♥

Hi everybody~!♥ :D *crawls out from under busy RL*
Things are still super busy in my RL, so I'm still on my mini-hiatus. (This is actually the first time I got to drop by my LJ since last month's VK post, and I didn't get to reply to anyone yet, sorry! D:)
But I got to buy LaLa, and so here I am for a post with scans + summary with translated bits of the most important lines + my comments about the chapter as usual. ^^/
(There's a bit less fangirling than usual because I'm typing this while very tired, but there's still fangirling too, of course. XD)
Click to see it bigger. ^^
The frame with Yuuki and Zero was normally really wide, so I cut it to put them closer, but it's totally accidental that my editing of the scans to make the sneak-peek above ended up making it look like Yuuki is at the perfect height reaching to grope Zero. XD *LOL*
Although it was perhaps an instinctive slip? XD *perverted fan, wished there were images in the chapter to make Zero grope Kaname also* XD
( VK chapter 80 stuff this way. :D (Warning: Spoilers, of course. And lots of rambling about Zerorin & Kana-chan, and how lovely they are. X3)Collapse )
I'll drop by when I have a moment to fangirl the chapter with you all, hopefully also when I'm less tired, and with some luck I'll get to draw some fanarts still this month. Last month passed so fast! ^^;;;
I've also been dying to make a post with some more info about the VK fangame I'm making (the one where you get to play as Yuuki and try to get the guys), though that's also progressing at half-dead-snail speed due to lack of time. ^^;
But hopefully sometime this month or the next I get to do some more VK stuff. ^^
Jan. 20th, 2012 | 11:07 pm
Hello everybody!! ^-^/
I was able to get LaLa super early this month~!♥ Four days early! *__*
Click to see the huge size version of this lovely pic. :D ♥
But I'm totally submerged with stuff in RL and actually need to take a plane in less than 48h but need to finish a lot of stuff first, so... *rushes by* ^^;;;
This post will be way shorter than usual, and I'll still be extra-busy for some time after this, so I won't be showing up much online for a bit. Though I'll drop by to fangirl the chapter and post about VK stuff whenever I have a moment as usual. :D (Just less often/less long than usual.)
I thought it best to make a mini-hiatus warning just in case I end up not having time to show up much, that way hopefully it won't worry people. *still feels so guilty for worrying everybody with my long hiatus a while ago* ^^;
Also, I'm super late with catching up reading everybody's posts/comments/PMs etc. as usual, ORZ. ^^;; Sorry!!
I've been hoping to find a moment to finish the dress-up game and some mascots among other stuff also, but I didn't get to on time for Christmas. D:
Hopefully sometime I'll get to post them. :)
So onwards with the summary~! :D ♥
( Vampire Knight 79 summary etc. this way~!♥ Collapse )
Super quick next day edit as I rush by again:
I got to check the Chinese scanlation posts now, and "玖玖爱枢♀" posted the chapter as they've been doing every moth. :D
It seems they either got it the next day I got my LaLa or the same day but could post their scanlation the next day, so in any case it's still super fast as usual. Many thanks to Jinjinlin12 and everyone from their team. ^^
As usual no raws, but you can at least see the chapter pages in the Chinese scanlation, if you are interested. ^^/
Also, Senbyafanatic has translated the Chinese scanlation, so here's the link to her post also. :D

Hi everybody~! :D It's the loveliest time of the month again! X3 *dances happily with the new chapter arrival*
EDIT: Post is updated~! :D ♥
Here's some lovely scans + a chapter summary~! Sorry it was late, I'm still buried in work and trying to finish it all on time before this weekend. ^^;
I got to go buy LaLa really quickly the other day as I mentioned, but unfortunately I couldn't come back with enough time to read and edit the post until now. ORZ
Unfortunately there was no color pic of Zerorin this time around,
but I like to think that lavender-colored butterfly might be him. 8D
As mentioned above, I'm on a really tight schedule and would really prefer not have to work throughout the Christmas weekend, so, uhm. ^^;; *rushes by*
As a result, sorry if the post could only be updated now, so much later than I'd like it to be, and sorry if it might be less coherent/less properly written than I would have hoped. (Please don't flame me for it or jump to any assumptions when you read about the theories either. ^^; I love all of the characters, and besides I am just a messenger, not the mangaka, so please no lynching for whatever characters do in the manga either. Whatever they do or say is not my fault. And when I fangirl random mind images in the middle of a dramatic chapter, it just means VK is irresistibly sexy, and not that I am in any way 'disrespecting' the canon or whatever. ^^;)
But late and rambly as it may be, the post also has lovely scans and the full detailed summary + translations of the stuff they're saying, so hopefully it will be enjoyable~! :D ♥
( Here's the first part of the post, which I wrote based on the sneak peek, before I got to go out and buy LaLa/read the whole chapter. ^^Collapse )
( And here's the newer info, including the scans. :D ♥♥♥Collapse )
Once I'm done with deadlines and can return, I'll be delighted to fangirl the chapter with you all. :D
If I can't get back on time, and if I don't get to finish certain thingies I was hoping to be able to finish on time for Christmas, then let me say already... :D
And in case I find time to finish the stuff after all,
stay tuned for some Christmas VK fan-stuff~! :D

Surprise~!♥ I scanlated the VK bonus chapter + all the extras from volume 15 of VK, that came out the other day. \^-^// ♥ (Very early Merry Christmas? XD *lol*)
Click to see the epic hotness of this pic in large size. :D
If you remember how much I fangirled the tiny thumbnail version of this pic when it
was initially shown, you can imagine how much I loved seeing the full size. 8D~~~~~
ZERORIN & KANAME-CHAMA TOGETHER IN THE SAME PAGE FOR ONCE!! 8D~~~
*explodes from happiness, flies around everywhere on a pink cloud of fangirly joy*
I'm not currently scanlating the monthly chapters from LaLa, due to epic busy RL stuff/epic lack of time that made that I had to choose between having enough time to do anything fandom-related (which are the things I enjoy, such as fanart/fanfic/participating/reading/etc.
But! Like I was saying above the preview, as a surprise thingie for the fandom I scanned and scanlated etc. the bonus materials from VK vol 15, including the bonus chapter~! ^-^/ (It's a short mini-bonus-chapter but it's so amusing and cute~! ♥ X3)
( Vampire Knight volume 15 bonus chapter scanlated in English + various scans of bonus stuff, this way!! ^-^♥Collapse )
I'd love to know about your own Christmas or Holidays VK-related plans, be them fanfics/fanarts or gifts you might be planning to give or hoping to get. :D It's always fun~! ♥
I hope you enjoy the lovely scans, and hopefully I'll have time to post more thingies before Christmas. :D *wanted to finish various fanstuff thingies but is still having annoying PC problems, which slows everything down* ^^;
But at worst even if I epically lack time for anything else I'll at least do a Christmas VK fanart or something. ^^
And at best, hopefully I'll have time to finish the new dress-up chibies fangame with Zero & Kaname. :D Possibly even more stuff, hopefully~!<333
♥ ♥ ♥
And please make sure to support VK and buy the books, please~! :D♥
Nov. 20th, 2011 | 01:34 pm
EDIT: Post is now updated with scans I've done from my LaLa and a variety of ramblings etc. about the chapter and some news. :D *will add more later also*
Warning: As always, there's some yaoi ramblings among the fangirling of both Kaname x Yuuki and Zero x Yuuki.
This place if het and yaoi friendly, and bashing of any characters or pairings is unwelcome here.
Click for giant version.
Edit to add: Serafira and Atemu_Mana cleaned my scan, with lovely results.
Here it is, if you would like to take a look. :D
Yaoi gushing: In the close-up, you can see Zero's lips are sexily matte as usual, and... both Yuuki and Kaname sexily wear lip gloss as usual? 8D *is shot* XD; Maybe in Kaname's case it's, err, chapstick to prevent delicate lips from cracking with the cold. 8DDD *lol*
Sorry, the Zero seme x Kaname uke fan in me tends to rejoice at such tiny details like the differences in how Zero and Kaname's lips are colored/shaded... Matte = gives a seme-like feel, while more glossy gives me uke vibes... XD
But Kaname's lips have always been glossy/blushy, even in screentoned images, so...perhaps it's just a natural pureblood feature. XD
In the artbook cover, Zero's lips were glossy too though, so... yaoi fans who prefer Zero uke have such fangirlable options too. 8D
Not a detailed summary this month since we've already seen the chapter (I posted links to translations etc. some days ago in this post), but there's commentary of some parts and fangirling of the various main moe/fangirlable points, as well as theory stuff. :D So scroll down for all that~! ♥
I thought I'd have the time to update the post much sooner, something like three days ago maybe, when I was finally able to buy my LaLa, but work was still too busy and when I could either take breaks or whatever else I was in too much of a rush and/or too dead tired and could only drop by for quickly replying to comments. ^^;
But now I could finally delve back into my LaLa and all things VK, and also scan a bunch of stuff, mostly pics that are not in the Chinese scanlation that we've seen the links for before. ^^/ So I bring a lot of delicious pics + some news etc. in this edit~!♥
Click for large size.
Hino-sensei is as usual extremely skilled at teasing us since it shows Yuuki smiling at us while holding the hand of a man off-screen... making us cling to the image imagining which of them it is, as well as allowing us to imagine it with whichever we feel like at the moment. X3
There's a more concrete clue to who's hand it might be though, in the fact the hand and arm are wearing the same dark glove and cuffed/belted coat sleeve style that Kaname has been wearing lately (like what he was wearing in the New Year teaser pic last month, with dark gloves and a farther back belt-thingie on the sleeve cuff that is slightly different from the one we've seen in Zero's coat before, where the belt-thingie is closer to the edge of the cuff than on Kaname's coat), but please keep in mind that this is just visual clues in a New Year card about random clothing the characters wear, please don't go and start flames over that. ^^; Either to me or other people.
(Sometimes just me fangirling one pairing or the other is enough to get pointless flames from fans of one or the other side, so... please don't waste your time and my time flaming me for whatever details Hino-sensei draws in the manga, I'm just fangirling whatever she draws and I love both Kaname x Yuuki and Zero x Yuuki anyway, so I just fangirl one or the other depending on whatever is going on at the moment etc.)
I'm just pointing out those details because it struck me that the hand and sleeve were the same as what Kaname is wearing in the New Year teaser pic last month, although since in said pic Hino-sensei chose to not show Zero's hands, he could maybe be wearing the same type of sleeves etc. as Kaname, even though the trenchcoats are different (we can see from the details on their shoulder areas). There's nothing preventing Zero from wearing whatever he may want to, so... it could be either of them even if Kaname was wearing that in the other pic. ^^
In any case, it's nothing new with Hino-sensei's style of teasing us, she puts one of the guys in the same place as Yuuki, then inserts a ton of hints to her closeness also with the other guy in order to keep both branches of the triangle present and alive in the story at all times.
It's no different than when she had Yuuki and Kaname living together at the Kuran manor and kept showing the bracelet to show that link to Zero, so now Yuuki is back at the academy near Zero but the New Year pic teases us with it looking like it's Kaname's glove and sleeve, and Yuuki mentions him etc. in the chapters, so his presence is still there and both sides of the triangle keep going. ^^
Hino-sensei is good at going back and forth keeping the love triangle present, and that way there are always lovely things for both pairings so that both sides of the fandom can enjoy this or that pic/moment/little bits of moe here and there for each pairing throughout the story. ♥
Since the latest volume cover is Yuuki with Zero, it's also only fair that Hino-sensei would put Kaname & Yuuki in other pics as well, in hints or more directly.
And if you must view the New Year pic as one pairing or the other to be able to enjoy it, you could always also view it as it being either Kaname or Zero, since we don't see the face and after all, Zero could be wearing something similar to Kaname's clothes too, especially since it's cold and gloves make sense in such weather. ^^
So between that pic and the other recent ones, it should all make happy either side of the fandom, hopefully. :D ♥
And if you want to lose all romantic vibes from that pic, there's another person in the manga whom I've seen before wearing that exact same style of gloves and sleeve cuffs: Kaien Cross. XD
So it's possible the New Year pic just looks mysterious to tease us all and it's actually just a father & daughter New Year outing rather than anything romantic with either of the guys. XD XD *lol*
And here's a scan I did of the advert image for the upcoming release of volume 15, which has a gorgeous pic of Yuuki and Zero:
Click for large size.
As I've mentioned farther down in the post, I love this cover because it's such a lovely image of the two, giving a feeling of them protectively guarding each other's backs (hopefully they can protect each other from any harm from Sara ^^;), and also because... I love that she's crushing that rose, and it's such a Kaname pose, another element making K & Y so similar and also fueling my fangirly thing of Yuuki at the academy = like a doujinshi of Zero x female Kaname. XD *LOL*
So the image is enjoyable in many ways, as Zero x Yuuki and also as various other possibilities. XD
I just wish we could see Zero's sexy face too. T^T *wants to see him looking happy in a cover, ideally the whole trio looking happy* VK has so many serious pics...and they're definitely super sexy, but happy pics are nice too. X3
You can see the final version/thumbnail for the volume 15 cover also in the large-size color chapter cover I scanned. ^^ (See at the top of this post.)
More scans farther down in the post, scroll past the grey text to see. ^^/
Older part of the post, where you can find links to translations etc.:
Scroll farther down to see more of the new images which I've scanned and which are not in the links or the Chinese scanlation etc.
Another month went by during which work deadlines etc. were so crazy that I barely could draw fanarts or post much at all. T^T *had so many planned but could get so few done*
I'm just glad I was able to do the Halloween pic and the VK chibi-character adoptables at least. :D Hopefully next month I get to post more often.
I've also been dying to update my fic series, but whenever I find a tiny moment, it seems it flies by and I didn't get to yet. This month was/is still being extra busy and rushed. ^^;
But for the time being I came running to share with you a link to see the new VK manga chapter, even if it can't be read in raw or English yet:
As they have done lately, the Chinese scanlation group 玖玖爱枢 ("99 Love Kaname") posted a Chinese scanlation of the VK chapter. :D ♥
If you understand Chinese, or just want to see the chapter, here's a link to the post by Kaname_no_Sora from 玖玖爱枢, who posted the Chinese scanlation.
PLEASE: Do not steal their scans. If you want to repost their images or anything like that, make sure you ask them permission first, since they scanned it and all.
It's all in Chinese, not in Japanese, so I can't read it since I don't understand Chinese.
Also, since it was posted only as a Chinese scanlation, and not posted as a raw in Japanese, I can't vouch for accuracy of it or of any translation of that translation since I don't speak Chinese, but it's definitely lovely to be able to see the chapter early, and we should of course all be grateful to the team for scanning and posting it~! :D ♥♥♥
Edit: Senbyafanatic kindly translated the Chinese scanlation, so if you'd like to read her post, here it is. :D
And a scanlation was made by someone who pasted Senbyafanatic's translation lines onto the scans made by the Chinese scanlation group, but I'm not sure if the person had permission since there's no credit or any mention at all of the Chinese scanlators who did those scans. ^^;
So I can only hope it was done with permission and the person who did it just forgot to mention it. ^^;;;;;
You can also see a sneak peek of the cover of the latest volume, in the blog of one of the members of the same scanlation group. ^^
( For the time being, here are a few ramblings and spoilery comments on what we can already see of the new chapter. :DCollapse )
UPDATED POST: Additional ramblings and scans etc. this way~! :D
(Sorry for the seemingly random order of this edit. Originally I planned to put all the new stuff here so that it would be after the older part of the post, but then I added some also early in the post so that you could see the edit right away instead of only if you scroll down my page. ^^; So there's a bit there and here, but the post is not huge so it shouldn't too much trouble hopefully.)
Teaser pic for next month's chapter! :D
(1 of 2 teaser pics since there were two this month.)
Click for close up.
( Additional ramblings and more scans etc. this way~! :D Also some news on the upcoming VK bonus chapter!!Collapse )
Edit to add a few last things:
One, please support our beloved VK!! ;___; Series die if people don't support them.
Please buy the volumes and support the series, so that you can fully enjoy the complete experience of VK since Hino-sensei always adds all sorts of sexy things/more detailed screentoning/etc. etc. to the final versions of the chapters. :D
The magazine versions are always somewhat incomplete, as she adds retouches later. :D So if you buy the books, not only you'll be supporting the series, but also you'll het to see a much more beautiful and complete VK than if you just look at incomplete scans. :D ♥
The full sexiness of Zero and Kaname can only be experienced by people who support the series, since only by buying the books do you get to see it all!! 8D *lol*
VK volume 15 comes out in Japanese on December 5th. :D
Two, please refrain from scan theft. ^^;;;
You can take the scans in this post if it's for making signatures/avatars/AMVs and such lovely things, but if it's just to put in your own blog etc. as is then it's best to just give a link to this post, that way people get to see them all together here. ^^ Or if you must take one or another and repost, please make sure to say they came from here and please don't hotlink, please reupload to your own place.
And please, do not steal scans from anyone else either. ^^; Please support VK by buying LaLa too if you want to scanlate anything, and if you must repost or edit someone else's scans, then please ASK people first before taking or reuploading their images. ^^
And lastly, although totally unrelated to VK, I have a book recommendation!! ^^
Sorry that it's unrelated, but it's from an awesome author which I like from his fanarts for another fandom, and it has supernatural elements in the story as well (including some vampire stuff), so I thought there might be people interested too... and figured I might as well recommend now since I'm never sure if it won't take yet another month before I finally post again. ORZ
For a long while I've been following online this author's lovely fanarts for Saint Seiya (although I haven't had time to do anything for that fandom since forever due to my VK obsession eating all my free time XD;), and as time passed he went from doing fanarts to doing also his own original projects over the years.
He's currently doing an original series about supernatural beings etc., for a French publisher. His name is Jérôme Alquié and the series title is "Surnaturels", you can see it here.
It's western comics rather than manga, but there's many people who like both, so I thought I'd mention it anyway. :D
The story is about a girl who has a handicap but is fighting to live life as she wants to despite that, and after moving to her new place she ends up meeting a vampire and other supernatural beings and together they fight enemies etc.
It's not very well known yet because from what I was told the publisher doesn't usually advertises their series, so things often depend on people recommending stuff to friends etc. for new series to pick up.
It could be something that might interest fans of other series with supernatural elements in it also, so if you live somewhere where they sell books by that publisher, please take a look at that series, flip through it, see if you'd like it and if you like what you see, then please support it? :D
I'm a big fan of the artist's StS fanarts, and one of my best friends is a friend of his, so I wanted to recommend his series. ^^
There's also a facebook page for the series, and a blog for the main character, updated as if it was her who's writing it, if you're interested.
And I leave you with a VK test flash-game I made while I was practicing stuff to see if I can someday make a VK mini-game with platforms. :D
You might have already seen it on either my tumblr or my DA, as I posted it there when I first put it together.
Version where Zero's legs move normally.
Version where Zero's legs move funny. XD
You play as chibi-Zero, climbing
(Just click the game screen and then use the arrow keys to move Zero.)
It was going to be to rescue chibi-Yuuki, but uhm, yaoi struck while I was making it and of course I couldn't resist having Zero rescuing Kaname. XD♥
♥ ♥ ♥
Oct. 25th, 2011 | 08:06 pm
I thought I might not have enough time to finish drawing this on time for Halloween, but a couple of days ago I ended up having a bit more time and got to finish it then. :D
♥ VK chibies dance for you wishing you a lovely and fun Halloween~ :D ♥
Their costumes are not so recognizable. ^^;
Zero is dressed as a mummy (who wore shorts to conceal the, erm, 'strategic areas' XD XD, and a trenchcoat because it was cold), Yuuki is a fairy queen (with the detailed butterfly wings I drew a while ago, if you remember them XD), and Kaname is in “traditional vampire”-ish costume… X3 Not much of a costume for him, but I wanted to give him something vampire-ish and more ‘old times’ looking, with the breeches and stockings.
Hino-sensei drew them in vampire/fairy/mummy costumes before, although it was a different costume design from the ones I drew.
I've also made a separate version which you can take freely and use to decorate your page or whatever you want to do with it. :D ♥
You can use them for whatever you like, if it's not bashing.
Enjoy~! :D ♥
(The only condition is that they can't be used for anything bashing related, and, of course, you can't claim you made them yourself. ^^; Please credit Sagakure.net if you use them anywhere. ♥ )
You can also just take the individual characters if you like one better than the other or want to put them in a different order to decorate a page or anything. :D
Their dances are slightly different because their arms weren't all at the same height. XD
Zero x Kaname & switching around Z&K. ♥
Again, whether you take one, two or three, or the pairings, please don't bash any of them or use them for anything unpleasant for anyone. T_T
I make those fanarts and little animations etc. with love for the fandom and characters, they are meant to be enjoyed and used in fun activities, not in anything unpleasant or negative in any way.
A happy and positive fandom is so much more enjoyable than one where there are pairing wars and character bashing etc. T_T There's enough negativity in the world, fandom is meant for happy fun and enjoyable moments. ♥
Hopefully their cutely peaceful & innocent vibes might act also as a bit of a softening balm for any pairing wars or anything going on right now anywhere in the fandom. ^^;;;
It seems whenever a new chapter comes out, things get really heated in fandom, so on various places like DA fanart posts etc. I've been seeing more hate-comments against characters and pairings. T_T
It's particularly sad when people leave such comments on artists' pages or on fanart posts etc. on sites. Posts in which the artist wasn't even talking about a pairing but just posted a pic with them, and then people make unpleasant comments on the pairings. ^^;
(This was not on my DA page itself, but I've noticed it happening and I thought I'd mention it because I consider it so sad for the fanartists and for the fans dragged into it by being made to see the comments and having their fun diminished because of the bashing and overall unpleasantness etc.)
People fight fans of other pairings as if that would determine what pairing is 'better', something that seems so pointless. ^^;
( Some ramblings on that subject this way.Collapse )
Onto other news, I've been meaning to post for a while the logo I made for the VK fangame. You might have seen it in the quick post I made on my tumblr, but if not, here it is:
The title will be "Love³", as in love x love x love, since the ideal ending for me is the trio together and happily in love. X3
As I mentioned before, once it's ready the game will allow you to play as Yuuki or as yourself (since you can change the main character's name), and try to win the hearts of either of the main two guys, or of both of them as a threesome. Or, you can also try to push them into each others arms if you choose to make Yuuki an yaoi fan too. X3 ♥♥♥
The idea is that hopefully that way fans of the various different pairings will be able to enjoy it. It is meant as a present of sorts for the fandom as a whole. :D
So hopefully the game will be enjoyable once it's ready. :D♥
I have also a new fangame surprise to announce sometime. X3
Well, this isn't a proper announcement yet, but due to the fact that
It will be a chibi Zero & Kaname dress-up mini-game. :D That one isn't a story-game like the other one, so it's a LOT faster to make, and hopefully I should be able to post it well before Christmas, perhaps even sometime in November. :D So hopefully it will be enjoyable also~! ^_^/
I'll post more about the games etc. when I have more time. :D ♥
So far, the plan is to have the Cross Academy uniforms, and kitty-costumes. XD
But I'd like to add other things too, so whether it's costumes or props, please post suggestions of anything you would like to see them wearing! :D
If I have enough time and it fits with the rest of the stuff, I'll happily try to add the items to the game~! :D
Comments to this entry are currently screened (meaning you can post but it won't show up right away), because this is my journal and I want this place to be a peaceful VK fangirling and fanarts etc. area where we can all have fun and enjoy VK, and I was worried that with anon flames and attempts to bait people and drag them into pairing fights etc., it might get unpleasant.
The way comment screening works: When set to that mode, comments show up initially hidden/not public, and then each time I get a moment to log in I'll click and all the comments to the post will display. ^^ New ones posted after that are hidden also, until I get to log in and do it again, so any new comments will appear by batches that way each time I get to log in. ^^/
Once things get a bit more calm in fandom as a whole, I'll set the page back to normal. ^^; (It usually happens after the new chapter gets digested and people's tempers are less heated, I guess...? ^^; )
Oct. 21st, 2011 | 11:27 pm
Just a quick post for the RSS feeds, to let people subscribed know that I updated the post below with a full summary of the chapter, with translations of what is said... and lots of fangirly ramblings
Link | | Add to Memories | Share
Oct. 20th, 2011 | 07:58 pm
Hello everybody~! :D It's that time of the month again, and while LaLa isn't actually officially out and for sale until the 24th, it is starting to pop up early, and I've just gotten an ok from a place that will have it for sale in something like a few hours to a day. :D So if all goes well, I should hopefully have my LaLa very early, and be able to make a post about VK76 tomorrow or so. :D
( Post prior to edits.Collapse )
Okay, I FINALLY got a moment to read through my LaLa and come make a post!! :D
Edit: FULL SUMMARY WITH TRANSLATION OF WHAT IS SAID IS HERE~! :D
The image advertising the color pages VK chapter next month:
Click the scan to see it in large size. :D
Btw, on the lower right corner, you can see the VK tape we'll get for free with next Lala!
( DETAILED SUMMARY + TRANSLATION of what's going on and being said in the chapter.Collapse )
EDIT to add: I noticed only after posting so unfortunately I didn't get to give you the link sooner, but witlessfool has kindly posted a translation she made from the Chinese scanlation~! SO here's the link if you want to go read it. :D ♥
Hopefully you'll find the summary etc. post useful anyway, especially since it's summarized and translated directly from the Japanese text. (And also hopefully those of you who are into yaoi and/or just into VK fangirling together can come and have fun with my outbursts of Zero x Kaname throughout the post... XD; *is dying to fangirl the chapter with everybody and wants to draw so much fanart based on it when she can finally find enough time* X333)
EDIT: I scanned additional things, and they're stuff that's not in the Chinese scans, so don't miss out on the lovely stuff. :D
It's the New Year teaser image, and it's MIND BLOWING!! *_____*
Teaser chunk of it as a close-up:
I think this is maybe my favorite images of the trio EVER. T___T Or at least one of my favorites. It's SO RARE for them to actually look happy, to be together ALL THREE smiling!! And no fighting, no sad looks, no pushing one or the other away... just together, happy, safe, having Yuuki nicely between them/in their arms, everything so perfect and happy.... T_____T
It's so beautiful it can bring tears to your eyes. *bawls easily even to kitten ads, so much more when it's characters she loves* XD;; Especially with how peaceful and happy all three of them look.
The powerful meaning behind what they are doing in the pic, considering the Japanese tradition is also so wonderful. T^T *clings to it and wants to frame it and put it on her wall as the ideal happy trio together* Oh if only the ending to the manga could be like that pic, all sparkly and happy and heart-wrenchingly beautiful.... T__T
Uhm, before I ramble about that pic forever, let me show you the rest and give you a close up. X3 *will ramble more then*
There's the pics above and earlier in the post, and also some more stuff: ( This way for more lovely things.Collapse )
This image is my ideal VK ending. I wish the series can end as beautiful and hopeful as this pic is, with the three of them smiling, close to each other, happy, tying away the tragedies of their lives and starting anew, finally safe and happy.... T___T
As soon as I have enough time, you can expect me to fanart this stuff like there's no tomorrow. XD XD
I have to go back now but I'll be back later to fangirl the chapter more and ramble about the lovely things in it with anyone wanting to fangirl it together, so... X3 See you all later~?
♥ ♥ ♥
Edit: Well, this isn't related to VK76 or to the official VK news, but due to the happy bouncy mood brought about by the hopeful New Year pic, I thought of posting this.
So have a fanart I did of Yuuki dreaming about Zero & Kaname kissing. X3 ♥
She would dream of them while sleeping in class, every day,
snoring, drooling and making weird little fangirly noises. XDD
Yori is so fed up she thinks she might explode soon. XD *lol*
♥ ♥ ♥
EDIT, about the freeze: There were many more normal discussions going on in the post but there was also some more heated pairing-stuff being brought in and people getting angry and claiming one side or the other of the fandom is more prone to bashing, and anons were throwing oil onto the fire by baiting both sides.
I don't want a 'Yume vs Zeki / Zeki vs Yume' pairing war exploding in my journal, so I froze the comments for now.
This freezing of comments is only to avoid pairing wars happening and stuff escalating, and it is in no way directed at any of the people posting in particular, nor at the other threads, so please don't misunderstand me.
I'm not saying any of the people posting normally in the threads were pairing warring or causing any problems, what I'm saying is that I'm afraid things might escalate with the anons throwing oil on the fire etc.
I'm not accusing anyone of anything, and if you have not flamed or attacked anyone, you are not at fault of anything, of course. Especially people who were posting not anon and without flaming etc. Please don't misunderstand me, I'm not accusing anyone of anything. *is stepping on eggshells with all this, doesn't want anyone to take this wrong* -_-;
I just want to avoid stuff escalating into all out pairing wars and getting nasty, especially if people fall for anon bait to attack one side or the other of the fandom.
That's why I'm freezing the comments for now.
I'm aware either side has lovely people in it as a majority, but either side also has more extreme fans, and with the anons and the possibility for things escalating and breaking out in all out pairing war I prefer to freeze comments and hope things will cool down.
I don't want a battlefield in my journal, I'm sure you all understand the feeling. ^^;
Please don't think I'm doing this in any way against either side.
Oct. 4th, 2011 | 10:23 pm
I bring tons of VK fanarts today~! (*∇*)/ (Some by me, others commissioned...♥)
I died and went to paradise from Kaname's hotness!!! X3
I've been wanting to make a post wich a bunch of VK fanarts for a while but ended up not getting to until now, as I used up the free time I had lately finally getting to fangirl VK together with the people in the comments of previous posts (XD♥♥♥ it was time well spent!) + drawing and finishing some fanarts, + reviving my DA account a bit finally. (It's because it's faster to just click 'upload' than to come here and write a proper post. ORZ)
I didn't get to revive my 'Night ♥ Hall' site yet and my gallery there seems to be malfunctioning, but hopefully sometime I'll get my site back functioning again. ^^;
But I'm happy I'm finally getting to post a big fanart batch on LJ like I hadn't in a while. ^^
Lately also whenever I have a free moment I always rush over to vampire-knight.net, to drool over all the lovely VK fanarts and fics etc. that people post there. :D♥♥♥
I mentioned the new site before but I have to mention it again, it's such an awesome VK fanworks paradise!♥♥♥ X3
Blackened Wing (the wonderful author of "Secrets in the Dark", "Crimson Door", "Blood Moon" and other wonderful VK fics) is the creator of the site, so you can rest assured that it's a true haven for VK love and a wonderful place for a VK fan community. ♥
She's an outstanding figure in the VK fandom and also a beloved friend. :D♥
It's a site geared towards creativity and posting your drawings and your fics etc., so it has so many beautiful things. :D It's a lot of fun.
And since it's not centered on just talking like many sites are, it focuses on creating rather than fall into bickering and fighting. It's not a place for hatred or pairing wars, it's a place for love and truly enjoying the series and our beloved characters.^^
The site opened recently so it's not yet very full, but it's already very nice~! Please come on over too if you're a fan of VK, and are not the flaming & hatred type. ^^;
The site has profiles and clubs and friendslists also, it's like a mini social network all made of VK love~! :D♥
And back to the fanarts I was mentioning earlier in the post... :D I bring you ones I finished recently, and aside from those, I have a surprise!
I was craving some Zero x Kaname piccies so much, and as it's rather rare (few people draw them as a couple and the few who do usually have Kaname seme and Zero uke T^T *likes it Zero seme and Kaname uke*), so as a result, I was starving... XD;;;
So I commissioned a few wonderful artists to draw pics of our beloved hunter x pureblood pairing~!! :D ♥♥♥
Here are the lovely results~! :D
( CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FANARTS. :DCollapse )
And of course, I bring you also fanarts that I drew. ^^/
(Some of it I drew recently, but most are things I had started months and months and months ago but only had time to finish it slowly and/or now.)
I've separated my fanarts in two posts because some are pervy so I've just posted the ones that are okay for all ages in this post, and I've made a separate post for the M-rated fanarts.
That way, people who don't want to see the mature ones can still open this post here to see the innocent pics and to comment etc. without worrying about their virgin eyes catching on fire or anything. XD
So this way to see the innocent pics. :D
( CLICK TO SEE MY LATEST VK FANARTS. :D (Safe for all ages or perhaps rated PG at worst for some of the pics.).Collapse )
...Aaand speaking of yaoi... :D
Here's a sneak peek of what you can find in the post with the mature-rated pics. :D
CLICK TO SEE THE OTHER POST, WITH THE M-rated YAOI PICS. :D
The pics are yaoi and have some nudity, although this time around it's not very explicit.
I'd say the rating is between M and at the very most NC17 perhaps.
Unrelatedly, I made a tumblr account! It's just because whenever I post here on LJ I end up making long-ish posts, which makes that lately I don't find as much time to post as I'd like to. ^^;
LJ is my main blog, but I figured I might make a tumblr and use it a bit like a twitter account for random mini-ramblings or sketches. ^^/
My LJ will still continue being my primary/main blog where I post all my stuff.
The tumblr is just a little extra twitter-like thingie for quick mini-updates in between making my posts on LJ. :D
I'm still playing around with it through, I don't know if I'll keep the tumblr or eventually close it, since I might end up not using it. ^^;
In any case, if you have a tumblr too, or if you feel like checking mine out sometime, here's the address:
And I'll leave you with a sneak peek of something epic I've started making. :D (Yet another project adds itself to the list of things I want to make, slooowly but surely. ^^; )
That's a screencap of what they'd look like sitting just above the taskbar of the computer. (Here we see them in front of my open SAI window.)
They'll still change a lot on looks etc. though, this was just a mock-up to see quickly what it would look like.
They're a duo of Zero & Kaname PC mascots that live together in your PC~! :D
I'm still making little Zero of course (slowly but surely... ^^;;; *hasn't found time to make stuff for him in a while but hopes to finish him one day), but this uses a different software to make the mascots "alive", and so they can walk all over the place in your PC and interact, instead of only having one alone and only sitting on the window. :D :D
So it should be fun when they're finally ready. X3
There's so many exciting projects and fun things to make. :D So it might be slow at times due to the epic lack of time, but hopefully we'll all have lots of VK-related fun ahead. X3 ♥♥♥
Vampire Knight Yaoi fanarts: Zero x Kaname + various other pairings (Extremely Kaname uke batch. XD)
Oct. 4th, 2011 | 10:23 pm
mood: *yaoi fangirling*
As I mentioned in my other post, I'm dropping by with a bunch of fanarts. :D
If you saw my other post, you have already seen the latest innocent VK fanarts I've drawn + the fanarts I've recently commissioned from other artists. :D
If you missed it, please click this link or scroll up to the post immediately above this one if you're looking at my LJ front page. :D
The pics are yaoi and have some nudity, although it's not really explicit.
I'd say the rating is probably M, or possibly NC17 at most.
( Apparently, strawberries taste better when eaten off Kaname's body...Collapse )
Sep. 22nd, 2011 | 08:55 pm
Just a quick post for the RSS feeds, to let people subscribed know that I updated the post below with a summary of the chapter.
Edit to add: Updated the other post with link to scans + link to a translation. ^^/
Link | | Add to Memories | Share
Sep. 22nd, 2011 | 12:52 pm
Thank you to the kind anon who posted the link to the partial VK75 scans, in my previous post~! :D
The chapter seems pretty dramatic! ^^;; *hopes everybody in it will be okay*
I'm torn here because I'm still stuck with my work deadline and I'm not done, but on the other hand, those past days I've been phoning all the nearby shops and should be able to get LaLa early today, in only a few hours... But there's work holding me stuck and unable to go anywhere, so... T^T *dramatic dilemma*
If I can take a break long enough to go buy LaLa and read it, I'll happily make a post rambling about it sometime, otherwise, it will have to wait a bit longer until I can have time to properly do it (it involves going out, then reading the chapter and taking the time to digest it and think of it in context with previous chapters and so on before rambling about it --although I still didn't get to catch up with all of the previous ones, as I mentioned in my previous post. ^^;;; So... the ramblings might be less in-depth otherwise.
In any case, I'll keep you informed when more pops up and as soon as I have a moment. :D
It's horrible yet hilarious that when I looked through the previews, one of the things that strongly came to my mind (after freaking out about some stuff in the chapter, of course) was "OMG, Kaname's coat, it's slightly extra long and covering his hand, leaving the fingers peeking out as if he was wearing a coat too big for him." *exploded in uke-Kaname moe mind images and vague thoughts of her own Zero x Kaname fic series, CoB, in which Kaname wears Zero's jacket and it looks too big because Zero is more muscular than him and wears a larger size as a result* 8DDDDDDDDDD *is shot by all the serious fans*
YAOI = ♥♥♥ XD
Also, I don't understand Chinese, but if you take a look at the comments in that thread translated using an automated site some of the results are quite funny due to the translation getting all messed up. XD
EDIT: EPIC SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. O____O *will probably stay making that face for a while after reading this chapter* XD;;
Click for a close-up. :D *couldn't resist tossing together a quick image with the lovely trio* X3
Sorry it's so messy and rushed, I literally just sped through scanning
the 3 images + cropping and tossing it together so it's pretty dirty.
But it had to be done, the three were so deliciously angsty and just asking to be put together in a
( OMG. O__O Click here to read my Mini-summary + ramblings!! *got to buy my LaLa early and see the chapter* Warning: SO MANY SPOILERS.Collapse )
EDIT AGAIN: Kaname_no_Sora from the Baidu forums in China uploaded a Chinese scanlation of the chapter.
So here's the link for anyone who speaks Chinese or who might want to look at the pages even without reading the text. :D
I don't understand Chinese so I can't vouch to the translation, but well, it was extremely epic fast, so it's great that it's up and can be looked at so early. :D
You can always refer back to the summary I've written in this post to know what's being said, or, well, the summary of it. ^^; *burns with guilt that there's no time to scan her own LaLa and scanlate it all to English, but has to go back to work* (I took a break to do this summary and to come fangirl etc. in the comments, but I still have to finish my work deadline, and so... Time is a rare commodity. T^T *is sucked back away to her desk*)
*will drop by during breaks to fangirl some more when possible* ^^/
*wants to fanart things from so many past chapters and this one, when there's more time than currently*
EDIT AGAIN (yet again XD):
Witlessfool posted a translation she made based on the Chinese scanlation. ^^/
So if anyone wants to look at the scans while reading a translation, there you go. :D
I wish I had had the time to have done a full translation of the chapter in my post, instead of just the summary + ramblings etc. but these days I'm buried in work so I can't... ^^;;
*wouldn't have enough time to do or follow anymore fanart or fanfics or fangirlings etc. much if at all if she had to continue scanning, cleaning, scanlating, etc. etc. everything. ^^; *enjoys fanarts/fanfics/etc. best in a fandom, feels so guilty for not scanlating but hopes you'll still enjoy the news posts and summaries etc.* :D)
The more VK progresses, the more we are reminded of what a fascinating story it is, and how amazing the main trio is. Even so many volumes later, both the main pairings/both sides of the love triangle are still just as beautiful and interesting.
And Hino-sensei is ever so good at torturing us, since she makes sure that both of the pairings are still completely possible and equally full of drama and tragic fascinating angst moments. X3
It's a heart-wrenching series, but all that passion and drama are one of the things that make VK so interesting. :D
So when you think of it, please remember how awesome it is, and how much you love it, rather than focusing on trying to destroy one pairing or the other...
This blog is a peaceful all-pairings-friendly no-bashing-allowed zone, so luckily we love and enjoy all of the characters here. But I know there are way too many places all around in the fandom where people focus on hatred and on destroying the pairing or character they dislike. That is a huge waste of time, and it's such a pity to ruin such a large part of the enjoyment you can take out of the series. When you focus on hatred rather than on actually enjoying and understanding the story, you miss out on the full VK experience. (That and it also ruins the fun of the fans of the character/pairing being destroyed by such behavior.)
One character's self-sacrificing/self-destructive tendencies and another character's mask of indifference and reactions don't diminish in any way the chances of their respective pairings. :)
As the story stands now, both Kaname x Yuuki and Zero x Yuuki are equally fascinating and have equal chances of being the potential end pairing (regardless of whether the end will be a complete tragedy or a dramatic but more hopeful ending), and there's no reason to hate on one because you like the other or to claim one pairing has no chances because you like the other or because you assume so based on momentary events. VK is a story constantly moving and evolving.
Both pairings are fascinating and utterly lovable.
Of course, if it depended on me, I'd have it end in Zero x Kaname, and Yuuki would be an yaoi fangirl pushing them into each other's arms, but sadly it's not up to me. XD XD *lol*

I'm still around, although as I'd mentioned before I'm very busy still/again, and there's a work deadline this week and another next week, so I might disappear for a bit (or show up every so often but just for short bits of time from time to time).
Also, as a result I'm not sure when exactly I'll get to go buy my LaLa/read the VK manga chapter 75 or post anything talking about it. (;-;)
But feel free to post a link to it here if/when it shows up. ^^/ It's totally fine/welcome~!
Onto better news though, I thought that before that I could drop by and post a few fanarts I drew of our lovely
(You will probably recognize them as the pics I was using for the example screencaps of the VK fan game I'm currently making little by little. ^^/ )
If you haven't been here for a while, please see my entry from a few days ago, for more info on my return and on the VK fan-game. (And on my current epic lack of time, making that I can't do much other than the occasional fanart/fanfic and VK news post. ^^;
If I tried to do more I wouldn't have enough free time for everything and would have to give up on the fanarts and fanfics, which are what I enjoy the most in fandom. ^^; Which makes that currently I'm prioritizing those + VK official news whenever I can find a bit of free time to enjoy fandom and to come post stuff.)
Both of those pics were originally drawn for people to whom I owed pics since a long time ago, so they belong to the people they were drawn for. ^^/
(Zero looking all sexy/badass while hunting Level Es).
Done for Sasusakufan1.
Click for a larger size.
If you are extremely motivated, you might find Kaname hidden in the pic somewhere. XD
(It's worse than those books where you have to find someone in a crowd. XD Hint: it's one of the Kaname bats only, watching over Zero's hunting to make sure he's safe. 83 *inevitable fangirl* XD;)
And the two together playing chess
(Semi-flirting and semi-confrontational/angsty...X3)

Done for Miss Miako.
In which Kaname is so focused on the Queen that he ends up losing the game
(A loss for Kaname's clothes, a win for us fangirls peeping through the keyhole while they're playing... XD XD)
*so wants to draw a pic of the aftermath, with them naked, when there's some time* X3
Aaaand, almost forgot to add this one. ^^;
Done for Memphy5.
Enjoy the piccies~! :D♥
And hopefully see you all soon, depending how fast I can find a moment of free time, or whether it's long enough to drop by and/or post some stuff. ^^/
Vampire Knight PC clock & game + Zero x Yuuki Parody fanart + Fanfic update + fanart + ramblings. :D
Sep. 17th, 2011 | 01:16 am
Still around! :D *does a happy chibi dance*
*not sure for exactly how much longer I'll have this extra bit of free time but I definitely will try and find bits of time here and there so that I at least get to have enough time to continue posting ramblings & VK official news + fanarts/fanfics/etc. like this even as the RL stuff gets crazy busy again* ^^/
Even if that means sleeping little. XD *missed fandom so much, is so happy to be back and doesn't want to disappear for long periods like that anymore if she can help it* ^^;
This post is a bit of a mix of a bunch of things, some fanstuff and some official VK news. ^^/
Sorry for the long post, but I'm unloading a bunch of stuff at once. XD
- My Zero x Kaname fic update
- The official VK PC clock
- The official VK quiz game
- A fanart I drew of Zero x Yuuki
- A fanart I colored of Kaname x Zero
First, a quick fanfic mention, you might have noticed if you're on FFnet, but I (FINALLY ^^;;;) updated my Zero x Kaname yaoi fic series "Cradle of Blood", with chapter 24.
I feel so guilty that it hasn't been updated in a year and 8 months. ^^;;;; But finally, chapter 24 is here, albeit with a cliffhanger. XD;;;; *hopes to be able to update the next chapter within a more decent time frame this time. :D
So if you're interested in Zero x Kaname yaoi and Romance with Hurt/Comfort (despite it being a rather dark fic series), here it is. :D
Cradle of Blood - chapter 24. (Warning: Rated M)
Summary: AU. Ten years after the vampires lost the war, the world is ruled by the hunter supremacy and vampires are only kept alive to serve as pleasure slaves in brothels. Everyday is a nightmare for Kaname, until he meets a certain silver-haired hunter… ZxK & KxZ
And onto official VK news now, LaLa magazine is celebrating their 35th anniversary this year, and as a result they have done a lot of festive thingies. :D
One of them is the LaLa online festival, for which they've done various little thingies of the series running in the magazine. :D
For VK, they made a Vampire Knight PC clock with the main trio! :D
It's VERY nice, even if it serves not much of a purpose other than to have a lovely VK thingie on your desktop telling you the time. XD
To install it, you need to first either install (or update, if you already have it) Adobe Air, the program actually used to run the clock. (You can get it here.)
You might also have to update it regularly as you use the clock. The clock asks to connect to the internet so that it can update it's news tab... ^^ It's not adware, even though technically, it's advertising the Hakusensha releases. XD
And you can download the VK clock itself in the page I linked above, or directly in this link.
(Either just install it or save and install. I saved just in case they later close down the download page and I still want to have the clock/install it in another PC. ^^; )
The clock is nice in itself, but to make it totally awesome, when you click "time" (at the bottom of it), it will actually display the date and time as if they were being said by the VK characters!! *_____________* *delights*
From 6:00 AM to 2:00PM Yuuki is in charge of informing us of the time (as it's day, and she's so sunshine-like X3), then from 2:00pm to 10:00PM it's Zero's turn (a time turning from day to night as a metaphor of his being formerly human and then becoming a vampire :D), and finally from 10:00 until 6:00 AM it's time for Kaname to reign over the late hours of the night, most fitting for a pureblood. X3
So it's utterly perfect because not only the hours they chose for each of the three are relevant to them as characters, but also that way both of the guys are constantly next to Yuuki. :D AND, to my utter yaoi delight, we have Zero and then Kaname. XD *likes to think this order means it's Zero x Kaname rather than Kaname x Zero* XD XD *LOL* (My obsession is ZxK, which means I love Zero seme topping Kaname uke, but don't care much for Kaname seme topping Zero uke, so that's just perfect from my point of view. XD *lol*)
(We've seen them before in the magazine
preview images, but it's still awesome!)
About the functions at the bottom of the clock: :D
"News" gives you the latest releases from Hakusensha (VK's publisher in Japan) etc.
It's a pity it's not a VK news thingie, just a Hakusensha releases thingie, but well. XD; *wishes it was about VK*
"Time" gets one of the main trio to tell you the time and date, like I was saying. *FANGIRLY JOY* X3 (No sound though, just the image and the line with time etc.)
"Movie" gives you a little VK advertisement video they did with the images from the beginning of the manga. Presumably something made to advertise because they sell it online also, although it would have been nicer if they could have used anime music and/or made something more up-to-date, but it's still nice. :D
You may or may not get stuck with the movie playing over and over. XD;;; *has it happening right now*
"Links" is self explanatory. :D The manga official site etc. (so old also... ^^; *wishes they made it more lively adding stuff to it regularly etc. ^^;)
So other than having the MMV playing for fun, the functions are mostly great because of the VK main trio telling you the time. X3 *clings to that function so much*
And still about the LaLa online festival, they've also done a VK quiz in which you can test your knowledge of English, (although that won't be as fun unless you understand Japanese also).
Basically, they took pages from the US release of the manga, and the quiz is to read those and pick which is the proper Japanese equivalent of the English lines, out of 3 options. (Some of the options are nonsensical so even if you couldn't understand English it should be possible to not get it wrong, but if you don't understand Japanese you won't know which to pick.)
I don't know about the other results yet (I didn't have more time or I'd have tried messing up on the questions and seeing all the other results you can get XD;), but if you max out the test you get pureblood level, which gets Kaname to compliment you and express his pride in your results. XD<3
Do please post a screencap if you get Zero? X3♥
Or the others, if you feel like it. :D
Edit: Thank you so much to all the lovely people who posted screencaps!! X3♥ *was so glad to get to see Zero without having to wait longer* X3
I got to play with it again today and get him myself too~! X3 *happy*
I haven't tried all the possible combinations yet, but I tried a bit more today and got Zero at 14 points. (I tried seeing what happens if you get all answers right but one.)
So I guess Kaname is only possible to get if you get all questions right, Zero is from 14 points to I'm not sure how many (maybe 10 or so), then below you have Aidou, then Yuuki and the level E if you have 0 points. ^^/
The max score is 15, as there are only 15 questions. ^^/
And here are the translations of what they each say when you get them:
"Pureblood class" - Kaname: "You are truly a paragon of vampirism. I am proud of you..."
"Competent hunter class" - Zero: "You're... quite something [quite amazing]..." [the word means "amazing" but it can also be used sarcastically, and considering it's Zero saying it to praise someone answering vampire-related questions, it makes one wonder if he means it as genuinely "amazing" or not... XD Hence the 'quite something' since I feel it sounds a bit more mitigated between "is he praising me or making fun of me" vibe. XD]
"Aristocrat class" - Aidou: "You're not there yet. Learn from me!"
"Like [as bad as] Yuuki class" - Yuuki: "That test was hard, wasn't it...? Well, at least it wasn't 0 points."
"Level E class" - Level E: *HISS* ("Can't you try harder than that?!!")
...I wonder why they went with "competent hunter" and not just plain "hunter"?! XD Perhaps it's just assumed that the rest of the Association sucks compared to Zero's level as a hunter maybe??? XD *LOL*
And onto something totally different, I'm not yet caught up with all the chapters but I couldn't resist drawing a parody of the scene in 74. XD
Please don't view it as offensive or anything. ^^; (It's not offensive in any way, but sometimes there are fans that are so quick to get angry or flame, I can't help but worry with anything... ^^;;;)
I drew it as a comical thing because the moment when Zero said [spoilers, highlight to read] that he had nothing to hide in his heart because he "had no more love/feelings for Yuuki", I just couldn't help but go "WHAT?! YEAH RIGHT!! XD Like we believe you when you say such a thing!!" XD XD XD
So the saying "zero credibility" came to my mind, and after that I couldn't resisting drawing a parody pic of that scene just to have him all uber-tsundere and put that caption on it. XD;;
EPIC TSUNDERE LIES. XD
Click for a version with a slightly pervier caption, if you don't mind the M rating. XD
Yuuki totally knows the effect she's having and is playing with it... XD XD (Well, in this parody at least. XD *wishes she'd gone all super fanservicey on him in the actual scene as well, even more than it was already deliciously fanservicey. XD)
In case it's hard to read, the text behind is "OMGSHE'SLICKINGMYNECK-" over and over as his mind goes into overload. XD
I forgot she wasn't wearing her school uniform in that scene, oops. ^^;
Also, due to extreme yaoi mind, I'd initially started drawing the male uniform jacket before it hit me Yuuki would be wearing the girl one, so I had to redo that. XD XD *lol* Luckily it was only in the sketching and not after already starting colors.
I would give so much for there to be scenes like that between Kaname and Zero. T^T
The blood drinking from chapter 30 is still the thing I like the most in the entire manga. XD;; *would probably never have gotten into it this much and developed such intense love for VK if Zero hadn't bitten Kaname then* XD;;;
The lack of Zero x Kaname anything fanservicey in the manga since forever is truly an agony. ^^;
I must be compensated with much fanart and fanfiction at least. ._. *wants to draw and write more whenever she can find tiny bits of time* XD;;
Although ever since Yuuki returned to being a pureblood she's become SO MUCH like a female Kaname lookalike in absolutely everything (especially some of the looks and poses, it's like it's the same person in male and female version!! *-*) that there are scenes of the manga where I just go off to yaoi lalaland and imagine the current new Night Class arc is a doujinshi about Zero x female Kaname. XD *is violently shot by the het fans of both pairings*
Well, those daydreams aren't anymore offensive than whenever there are lovely Kaname x Yuuki scenes and I'm all over it imagining how it would be if it was Zero drinking from Kaname instead of it being Yuuki doing it. *lol* XD XD XD;;; *is shot again*
I do fangirl the scenes of her with either of them for the sake of the het pairings themselves as well of course, but it's inevitable for my mind to fangirl the het as a minor element and then to run back into the Zero x Kaname yaoi mind images. XD;; *is filled with ZxK yaoi love*
*rambles on* XD;
Have another fanart before I leave! X3 I colored a pic by the lovely Raisin-Mucchin.
Click for a larger version of the pic. :D
I guess this is it for now. ^^/ Enjoy the various thingies and hopefully see you all soon~! ♥
Sep. 13th, 2011 | 07:58 am
I'm alive, and hopefully if nothing sudden happens I should be back to fandom finally (sort of). :D
This post might be a bit chaotic since I don't have a lot of time so I can't take too long or really proof-read it, so sorry if it's rambly and in an at-times odd English. ^^;
I'm horrifically sorry for how long I've been silent. This wasn't some uncaring move or some dropping out by laziness or anything. ^^;; Trust me when I say I feel so guilty for how long I've disappeared from fandom, and how terribly I've missed VK and you all. ^^; *always remembering our fangirling together happily, and missing it so much*
( Long post this way. :DCollapse )
And btw, I haven't returned entirely empty handed. ヽ(*￣▽￣*)
I've had a longer work project that was completed recently and that left me with finally a little bit more of free time since quite a while (for now at least), and so I put that time into two things, 1) realizing that it was long overdue for me to return (which resulted in this post here), and 2) secondly...
...A VK fan game I started making! :D :D :D
It's still only in the beginning though, so all I have to show you is a preview thingie with some random text in it, and I don't even know for sure how the final thing will be, but hopefully it will be enjoyable once it's finally done! :D♥
Here are some screencaps to give you a general idea of what it will feel/look like. :D (It's nowhere anywhere near to being able to beta play yet though, I've only just started the programming and drawing all the stuff for it. ^^;)
I'm of course tempted to just make it a yaoi game in which the good ending is Zero x Kaname (I'm so predictable when it comes to those two XD *lol*), but I want as many people as possible to enjoy it so that it will hopefully be a fun thing for the fandom in general, so I'm not sure yet what the actual final content will be.
The current idea I'm going with is that you play as Yuuki, or as yourself (I've programmed it so that you can input your own name or whatever name you want to play with, like the official game is), and you get the chance to try and pursue a romantic relationship with either of the two main guys. (Sorry, not all the male characters since that would take ages to make. ^^; It will be limited to the pairings within the main trio, although there might be a few extra thingies with other pairings as a little bonus without much into them.)
So hopefully it will be enjoyable whether you're a yaoi fan too or whether you like only one of the pairings with the main trio. :D The way I have it planned right now you'll be able to get either Zero or Kaname... or to try and push them into each other's arms instead. XD (Well, if anyone can do such a thing, it would be Yuuki who could! XD *lol*)
In an ideal world and if the game turns out to be short I might be able to release it still sometime this year! But this is only in case it turns out that way. ^^; Sadly, that's largely improbable.
Despite the current larger free time for a bit, things are still busy and another time consuming project will start sometime soon also, so the more probable likelihood is that the fan game will only be released sometime next year if all goes well.
( More ramblings.Collapse )
...It seems my tendency to ramble and make long posts didn't die with the near-a-year away. :X *hopes the post won't be too messy, won't have time to check if it's the case, apologizes if it hurts your eyes* ^^;;; Better stop rambling now before the post gets even longer. ^^;
So lastly, I leave you with a couple of lovely things that will hopefully entertain you until the next update.
It's one of those little fangirlable gems that don't usually make their way out of Japan, and which I was mentioning earlier.
I scanned the thumbs for the images Hino-sensei drew for cards to be given as prizes for people winning draws in LaLa magazine (those are extremely rare and cost loads of money if you ever get the chance to put your hands on one, so usually the image is never seen again if you haven't saved a thumbnail when the contest happened or something like that. ^^; )
And the recent Summer card with the trio dressed for a Japanese summer festival! :D
And hopefully see you soon, although I don't know for sure when exactly, but hopefully sometime this month~! X3 *has SO MUCH lovely things to catch up on also, reading fics and taking a look around to see what she missed*
PS.: The lovely Blackened Wing (the most amazing fic writer in the fandom!<3) has started an AWESOME VK fansite, in which you can share your creations (your fanarts, fanfics etc., but also a variety of things like your own doujinshi if you drew any, and AMVs and games etc!), so I absolutely must pimp the lovely site right away. X3 *was dying to do it ever since she was told about it, wishes she could have done so earlier*
Oct. 23rd, 2010 | 12:17 am
music: PC making noises. XD
Hi there~! Still alive, but still running around in circles with RL taking up all my time. ^^;;
"RL" = real life stuff, btw. ^^;/ In case you didn't come across the acronym before.
RL has a way to eat up fandom time so much. ^^;
I did however get to run out early yesterday and buy my LaLa magazine super early~! ❤
So I'm very happy with that at least! *∇* ❤❤❤
I didn't have time to do anything yet, but I thought I'd drop by here quickly, even if just to post a brief batch of VK news. ^^/
The bad news are that VK chapter 66 unfortunately has no Zerorin in it (;___;), but the good news are that it has many scenes with Kana-chan looking smoking hot!
Yuuki is also very adorable in it, and Kaname and her have some very romantic scenes (possibly among the most romantic scenes they've ever had so far) that got me to have an explosion of mind images in which Yuuki was replaced in the chapter scenes by Zero and things went ❤ZxK yaoi❤ instead. XD;;;; *is shot but dies happily in yaoi bliss*
Especially since Yuuki mentions Kaname's vulnerability and the two finally open up about some things that matched so much various mind images I have for Zero x Kaname yaoi, that it was impossible to resist the invasion of mind images with Zero there instead of Yuuki. XD;;;
Yuuki is really growing up so much, and becoming able to stand up for herself more, btw! *has more 3P mind images of the trio as a result too* 8D
Ramblings + spoilers for the chapter ahead, highlight to read if you don't mind:
The scene in which Kaname says that if Yuuki feels jealous because his name was given to him by another woman, then Yuuki should just rename him, is such an epic scene. XD *violent nosebleed imagining a steamy Zero x Kaname scene in bed, with Kaname promising to cast away his name and begging Zero to rename him~<3*
The whole concept of Kaname's love being so much about giving himself completely to the person he loves, is one that make the Zero-seme and Kaname-uke fan in me so happy, because there's so much potential for yaoi. XD;
Like [more spoiler for this chapter:] the scene where Yuuki is thinking about the fact that for years she didn't know and just thought Kaname was so impossible to reach, and then now that she realizes that he'd viewed himself as belonging to her completely all along, she's not sure how to act... XD
And the whole thing with her desire to devour him being mentioned again. 8D I can't help but immediately have a ton of mind images of Zero feeling that way for Kaname too, and all the subsequent hot yaoi mind images that it causes. XD XD *floats on a pink cloud of yaoi delight*
Sure, it would be lovely to see any of the three main characters expressing such feeling for each other and vice-versa, seeing how they'd make such a lovely threesome, but to imagine it focused on Zero x Kaname yaoi is extra lovely to imagine. 8D Well, at least, for an yaoi fan like me, it's inevitable to get all fangirly about such an idea. *drools and nosebleeds happily*
So yeah, this chapter brought much delight and moeable mind images, which is a much needed little boost of energy during busy times. X3 *is dying to have time to fanart and fanfic etc. anything VK*
Sorry if anyone minds all the fangirling about Zero x Kaname btw. ^^;;; It's not that I don't like the scenes with Yuuki or anything, btw. ^^;;; I love Yuuki, she's really adorable. But Zero x Kaname yaoi is so much more lovely for me than any of the het pairings. 8D *drools at them endlessly* X3 *wishes Yuuki would just pull both of the boys into a threesome already* XD ❤❤❤
If you want to take a look at the chapter in Japanese, someone kindly posted some scans of it on a Chinese forum, there's a link in this thread in my previous post.
(Sorry I didn't get to reply to comments yet, btw! Thank you so much to all the lovely people who expressed concern or happiness to know I was okay etc.~! You are all so wonderful and lovely~!! ❤❤❤)
Onto more VK news, Hino-sensei will be taking a break next month, so there's no VK in November.
There will however be a 2011 calendar coming free with LaLa next month, and it will have VK content. :D
I'll post a scan of the preview when I have a moment, though it was a tiny B&W thumbnail of Yuuki sitting by herself and we can't see much. (Apparently no ZxK, err, Zero or Kaname in the calendar, sadly. It's just one page per series.)
I'm so looking forward to the bonus chapter next month too. :D *eagerly awaits magazine* (It's probably why there's no normal chapter, since Hino-sensei will be doing the bonus.)
I've been meaning to make a post mentioning there will be a bonus since forever, but with the lack of time lately, it hasn't been possible. ^^;
I'll pop up again with more news and stuff as soon as I can. :D
Meanwhile, I leave you with a quick little pic I drew of chibified Zero & Kaname jumping into each other's arms lovingly. X3 ❤
(Sorry I'm a bit rusty. I didn't have time to draw them in so long. ^^; *wants to have time and do some elaborate pics, especially with all the fangirlable situations and all the ZxK mind images* X3 ♥)
Please ignore the weirdness of them having no legs. XD;; It seemed like a good idea on the spot.

Hi everybody! ^^;; *dodges rocks for lack of life signs/scans/news in so long*
An RL emergency has pretty much swallowed me for the past weeks, and this is why there were no news/scans etc. posted.
As of now, I still have my suitcase sitting in the living room, ever since my return from vacation back in August. A bunch of my stuff is still in it, I didn't even have time to finish unpacking everything. For the same reasons, I didn't get to finish the scans I'd mentioned in my previous post.
( This is just a somewhat quick post because things are still pretty busy, but I just wanted to say I'm alive and clarify a few things. This way for that.Collapse )
Bottom line is, I'm alive, but not sure how active in fandom I'll be for a bit. Things are starting to get a little bit less busy in RL, but it was just such a crazy roller coaster lately, so I'm not sure just yet. D:
I just wanted to make this post so that you would know I'm alive and not ignoring you or anything. (And in hopes that people might go for VK-related subjects instead of trolling and flaming.) ^^/
*needs to go pass out asleep now* ^^; So... see you around whenever possible! ^^/
Aug. 28th, 2010 | 11:28 pm
Hi everybody~! :D♥
As promised, I'm alive and back from my vacations~! (on time for VK 64. *lol* XD; )
Sorry for the rather mysterious pic but at least it reveals nothing. XD;
*is ever as super-shy as usual and wouldn't put a pic of herself* XD;;;;
The vacations were lovely and so tropical~! *∇*♥♥♥
I really needed it! ^^; I feel like I've been so tired and so stressed for so long that I couldn't quite remember when I last felt truly rested. So the trip was wonderfully rejuvenating~! ♥♥♥
I also bought my LaLa magazine as soon as I returned (I almost went to do it on the way home from the airport, but ended up getting it the next day after all. XD;;; *was dead from the long flight*)
I'm currently scanning and cleaning etc. VK64, although I'm also still in the middle of undoing my luggage and will be catching up with everything in RL here as well, so I'm sure you understand why it's not as fast as usual. ^^;
I also didn't have time yet to check my fandom e-mail or other such PMs and messages, so I'm sorry if anyone is waiting for a reply on anything. ^^; *will get to it when she's done with the RL stuff and VK64 and has more time* :D
So for now, see you soon, sometime in the upcoming days. :D♥♥♥
*will most likely post the chapter directly instead of posting a summary first, to save time and make you all wait less* ^^
Aug. 2nd, 2010 | 02:49 am
Things are crazy busy right now, so don't be surprised if it takes super-long for me to reply to PMs/mails/comments right now. ^^;
I have some deadlines to finish, after which I should have some time off!! X3 ♥
The catch is, with being busy and then with the vacations, I won't have much time to go online at first, and then later I'm not sure if I'll have access to internet for a bit (I'm taking my laptop, but I'm not sure, plus there might not be much time so I probably won't get to check fandom stuff etc.), so chances are I won't get to do much fanart/fanfic/fandom activities if any at all during that time, but if all goes as planned then I should be done with the current deadlines and the vacations after them and be back online around the week of the VK chapter coming out (official date), so... don't worry if it looks like I'm offline for a while or something, I'll come back for the chapter. XD *lol*
I really wanted to have had the time to update my Zero x Kaname fanfic series, "Cradle of Blood" within July, but... D: Time has flown by again, and poor CoB will probably/hopefully be updated when I'm back instead. ^^;; Sorry!!
To everybody who's been asking about the fic and still following it despite how late the update is, sorry for the delay and thank you so much for your lovely support~! ♥♥♥
I also wanted to have had time to finish the fan-game I'm making and which I mentioned before, in which you get to undress Zero & Kaname... ^^
But this too will have to wait a bit. ^^; *was almost done but it seems time disappears so fast when you're busy*
(That game and the countless other fan projects I still have unfinished, like the Zero mascot. ^^; *got a new program for it but still have to figure out how to code in it to make the mascot function* :D)
But well, despite the lack of
(*didn't want to make a post without giving a little something in it so that people can enjoy their stay when passing by* XD;)
I drew those pics to be used as VK "plz" icons on DA (plz are like smilies, but bigger and custom-made by the users, so those VK ones were made so that people posting there could have the VK characters showing up in their comments :D), and so I made icon versions for LJ-sized icons as well. :D
Please ignore the fact that some of the sizes of the characters are a bit off. ^^; (*saved Yuuki in two different sizes after fixing the way her hair looked off* ^^;)
And lovely combinations:
And here are also a few het combinations in various flavors (face-to-face or Yuuki chasing after the guys). :3
*wanted to convey the idea of "seme-Yuuki" in the chasing aspect also, but with chibi characters it's so very vague and all is innocent anyway* XD *lol*
*will make some more with the different hair lengths some time maybe* ^^
♥ These icons are free to be used by anyone you just have to please follow those three conditions:
1) You can't use them for anything flaming or bashing.
(Be it bashing people, bashing characters, bashing pairings, they can't be used for any of that, anywhere. ^^
Thank you so much for your understanding and help with that. Those icons are about fandom love and peacefulness, so it would be terribly sad if they were used in bashing comments etc. ^^;)
2) You can't use those icons if you have any icons/layout/etc. made with stolen fanart.
(That means any fanart that's being used without asking the fanartist if they were okay with you taking/using their art.
We fans have to stick for each other, and it's not right to take something a fellow fan took hours to create without asking if they're okay with it. ^^;
Always think: you wouldn't take someone's fanfic and edit it to use for yourself or repost it on your own site without asking the person, so naturally you can't do it fanart either. Please always ask fanartists first. :D ♥♥♥)
3) If you'll use the icons, then please put a credit line saying "Fanart by Sagakure.net" in the second line of your icon thingie on LJ, as shown below. :D♥
If planning to use the icons in some other site, then please put the credit line somewhere in your signature or some visible place like that.
An easy thingie demonstrating how to put the credit line in icons:
Just the site adress is okay though, like I mentioned above.
*hopes you might enjoy the icons* :D♥
See you all again soon~! :D♥
(Well, "see" online, but yeah. XD<3)
Jul. 28th, 2010 | 07:21 am
Here’s VK63. ^^/ Sorry for the delay.
I was doing the scans bit by bit while finishing my work deadlines as well, as usual, and so there was a delay in when I got to post the chapter. ^^;
I mostly finished earlier today and then had to go to a doctor’s appointment (for unrelated reasons XD;) and finally got to finish the chapter and post it now. :D
I’m quite dead tired right now. ^^; Plus the nurse was kind of wiggling the needle in my arm when taking blood. O_o ow.
It seems she went too far through the vein and so blood was having trouble coming out, and she started tapping the area to fix it and pulling a bit etc., while the needle was inside, oww. ^^;;; (Blood tests etc.… Never pleasant but at least it always gives fanfic ideas for VK stuff. 8D; *lol*)
But random ramblings aside, the chapter is here. :D♥
Close up of the preview image, for anyone wanting to have/use it or anything.
I put together chunks from the cover and pages because I wanted to have all
three of them in the image instead of only parts of the trio I love so much.
(Also, the preview image has a bit of an added blush for all three of them. XD)
I DON’T OWN VK. ^^;;; PLEASE DON’T BASH OR FLAME ME FOR WHAT'S IN THE MAGAZINE ETC.
I DON’T CHOSE WHAT CHARACTERS OR PAIRINGS GO IN THE MAGAZINE OR CHAPTERS.
And I’m tired of seeing people act in such unfair and mean manners. ^^;;
Enjoy the magazine version~! :D ❤
(Hopefully while you wait for the book version to buy/support, please~! ^-^/ ♥♥♥)
WARNING: If you intend to read the commentary and my ramblings and not just the chapter alone, then Please don't flame me for the occasional fangirling & yaoi themes/keywords in the posts.
And in case you're new here: I'm primarily a yaoi fan and my OTP is Zero x Kaname, although I also love Yuuki and ship her with both of them as a threesome, or with either of them as two lovely pairings.
When I first got into VK I got into KxY and then later into ZxY as well: I enjoy both pairings. And I adore the main trio, especially together. X3 Even if yaoi is my favorite over any of the guy/girl pairings. XD
So please don't throw rocks or anything if I fangirl either of the characters and you hate any of them.
I love the main trio, and find it really tiresome when people get all "if you like several pairings you're a traitor to [insert here whatever pairing the person flaming ships]".... ^^;;;
Fandom is for enjoying the series we love, in a peaceful and pleasant environment. It's NOT for pointless flaming or pairing wars.
This blog is a peaceful NO-pairing-wars & NO-bashing zone.
Bashing, flaming, cyber-bullying, none of those are welcome here. ^^;
If you get a sudden urge to rage and attack at anything, be it a pairing/character or, worse, a real person, please just breathe deeply and then talk about something positive instead. ^^;
Proceed with gentleness and before posting, think of how it would feel for you if your post was written by someone else talking about you yourself, or even just your favorite characters.
Let's all be considerate to each other and enjoy fandom in a pleasant and peaceful way~! :D❤❤❤
( VK 63 this way! :DCollapse )
Please, don't forget to buy your local official releases of the VK manga and anime! :D
(Don't fall for the bootlegs, the anime pirated DVDs are so often made with stolen subs AND are generally of horrible quality. Please make sure to only buy the official DVDs and books, otherwise you're not supporting VK since the money goes to bootleggers instead of to the author etc. ^^;;;)
It's important. D: Any series dies without support, and VK may be popular, but it's popular for a shojo manga series, which means not that much compared to big shonen manga blockbusters. We have to support the series we love, as all series die without support. ^^;/
And that's it for this month~~! :D *hopes you enjoyed the chapter* ♥
Jul. 22nd, 2010 | 03:26 pm
location: In front of my scanner~ X3 ❤
music: Old PC making its whimpering noises. XD;
Mso kindly scanned and posted the chapter on her blog album, and kind commenters in my previous post pointed it out. ^^/
(Sadly, this was several hours ago, or I'd have made a post about it much sooner. ^^; *was away for a bit*)
The chapter title is "Hunters and Ancestors", and Yuuki holds Kaname tightly
on the cover, while in the pink line she says "Oniisama, show me everything."
Click to read the scans on Mso's blog.
I'll have a slightly shorter summary rather than go super in detail as I sometimes do, because I'm hoping to go out and buy my LaLa today, and would rather spend this time now into trying to finish some work stuff so that I can start scanning etc. sooner, and this way, hopefully you might have to wait a bit less to be able to read the chapter. ;)
Edit later: Fail, it ended up just as long as usual. XD;;; But I got to go out and buy LaLa!! \*∇*/
This chapter has SO MANY revelations, it's EPIC!! *___* ❤
( This way for epic revelations. XDCollapse )
I'll be back with the chapter as usual, when I have a moment to scan etc., so stay tuned~! :D ♥
Edit to add: I got my LaLa~! *∇* ❤❤❤
And here's a lovely preview image I scanned from the teaser pic... is Zero dressing up or undressing, what do you think? XD *self-combusts from the hotness* XD XD
Jul. 20th, 2010 | 12:46 pm
Since my previous post had a fanart of somewhat mature content, and I know that people tend to hang out here more around this time of the month due to the upcoming chapter, I thought I'd make a new post so that anyone young or not wanting to see partial nudity won't have their eyes catching on fire due to the previous post's content. XD;
I probably should have gone and drawn something with Yuuki in it or something, but my fan spirit is 99% of the time focused on Zero x Kaname yaoi... 8D;;;
And so it ended up backfiring and being another pic like this instead. XD;
But at least, it's not pervy like the previous fanart, so people can drop by this post without being horrified by the yaoi or anything, hopefully. XD; Since it's just a kiss. ♥
I drew it during a break between things I was working on, and had to finish the piccie extremely fast, so please ignore the messiness and the fact it's somewhat meh. ^^;
Also, Kaname is supposed to be 3cm (about one inch) taller than Zero, but somehow in the pic it switched around. 8D; Maybe they're sitting or something. XD
Hopefully people passing by and who like Kaname and Zero together can still enjoy the pic despite it being rushed. :D
♥♥♥ *so hoping there migth be any interaction or anything between those two in this month's chapter* X3 (*never loses hope even after months of fannish starvation for them to at least be in the same room or speak to each other or something* XD;;;;)
Yaoi in the actual manga may be impossible, but there's alwas fan-service and lovely interactions anyway. X3 *desperate ZxK fan will take anything she can get* XD XD
Plus there's always the wonderful world of fanfics etc. 8D ♥♥♥
(Speaking of which, hopefully I'll get to update CoB this month! ♥)
EDIT to add: I just phoned some of the shops nearby here and (IF this doesn't fall through ^^;), apparently, I should be able to go buy my LaLa in less than 24 hours!! *___*
Keeping in mind though, that this is before the official release date, and I've had cases in the past where shops said they'd have it for sale at this or that date and then it fell through. So it could always fail and be later, but if we are in luck then it might be out and for sale tomorrow!! *_________* ♥♥♥
*eagerly bounces around and looks forward* X3 ♥♥♥
*immediately goes back to mind images of Zero & Kaname yaoi and hoping that there might be at least some interaction between them in the chapter* 8D<333
EDIT to add (02):
As I was fearing it might happen, the supposed early LaLa sale today at a nearby shop fell through. ;_;
They tell me they might be able to sell it early tomorrow after all, but we're not sure yet. Hopefully it will be the case~! :D
(Since it fell through today, I take with a grain of salt that it might be out tomorrow... but hopefully it will!! :D♥ And it would still be before the official release date of the 24th, if it goes well.)
(Well, after getting the magazine, I'll still have to juggle with my work deadlines to find some time to scan etc,. but hopefully I'll find time quickly and it might be out sometime soon~! :D)
*crosses fingers and hopes to have it soon* :D
Until then, we can always pass the time waiting in a fun way, by putting our fan spirit into fics and fanarts etc. ♥ (be it reading or creating them), and hopefully most people might steer clear of the nastier stuff that tends to happen around release times. ^^;;; (Such as people's tempers getting heated while they wait for the magazine to be out and pairing wars or flaming happening. ^^;
It's far more enjoyable for the fandom to focus on creating and having fun etc., rather than anyone trying to crush others because they don't like the same pairing or don't want to accept that some of us like several pairings and so on. ^^;)
*hopes for a pleasant and peaceful fandom experience, and is always dismayed by how violent the fandom sometimes gets around the time of each new chapter coming out, due to how some of the very extreme fans of each pairing react to the chapter or to other fans and attack each other. ^^;
(This happens more and more and with fans of the different pairings btw, so please don't flame me assuming I mean anyone or any side in particular. It's a widespread problem.)
Jul. 16th, 2010 | 05:09 pm
Sorry I'm late to reply to comments/PMs/mails as usual. ^^; *tries to catch up with replies but sometimes fails especially when work gets busy again*
I'm trying to get some fanstuff done as soon as I can before I get buried under work deadlines again. XD;
I might not have time to finish the fangame (the one I mentioned in previous posts, about undressing Zero & Kaname 8D) this month after all, not sure yet, since things are getting busy again about now. D:
But at least, I got to finish this Zero x Kaname yaoi pic I'd drawn and been wanting to finish for a really long time! :D ♥
WARNING: DO NOT view the pics if you hate yaoi (or if you are under 13), or if are a basher or are one of those people who are in fandom just to hate and flame characters or, worse, people.
The pic has kinky implications but nothing is visible other than a nipple, so I guess it's PG13. Still, don't follow into the post to view it if you're sensitive to such themes or something.
There's nudity, blood and kinky S&M themes. You've been warned. ^^;
And a general warning non-related to the age rating only:
If you're just online to bash or flame or whatever because you hate yaoi or either of the characters, or because you like to attack people just to seem cooler than them or whatever, please pass your way. ^^;
I'm in fandom to have fun with the series I love, share it with other people who love it too, and enjoy it all together in this sharing and togetherness community spirit of fandom.
I DON'T care about any of the "my favorite character/my favorite pairing/my site is cooler than yours neneer neneer" childish attitude that some have and in which everything is about rivalry and trying to crush whoever they view as the 'enemy', and that is often focused on cyber-bullying and other insufferable behaviors.
So please, don't waste your time or that of others. Enjoy fandom in a positive way, don't go around bashing characters or pairings, and much less real people.
Think before you attack anyone or what they like and/or make it all into some big war and paranoia etc. ^^; Believe me, the world is much more simple and happier than you make it by creating pointless paranoia and fandom warring.
(And PLEASE, don't flame me thinking I'm attacking any of you by asking people not to bash and flame etc.!!
I'm talking about the problem in general and the fact so many people do it, I'm NOT targetting anyone, on any sides of the fandom/communities/sites/forums/whatever.
This fandom used to be more peaceful a long while ago, but the more it grows and the more there's very young fans in it, it seems the more it becomes bitter and violent. ^^; And that's really not something I enjoy being forced to dodge through the time I get to relax and enjoy fan activities, so if you're into fandom to make it all war-like etc for everybody... please don't. ^^; It's a waste of time for us all.
It's far better to just enjoy fandom and create fanworks etc. for fun and to share with fellow fans, rather than ruin everybody's fun with rivalry spirit against other people and/or character etc. bashing. ^^;
With this out of the way, here's the Zero x Kaname pic with its variations and wallpapers. :D
( Zero x Kaname this way. Warning: YAOI.Collapse )
*hopes you might enjoy the pic if you like yaoi and that pairing* :D ♥
Jul. 14th, 2010 | 10:26 pm
mood: *sunstroke headache* ;-;
If you've been following my VK news posts etc., you already saw the gorgeous Wonderland bonus Hino-sensei drew for volume 12, with Kaname as the Queen of Hearts, Zero as Alice, and Yuuki as the rabbit. X3 ❤
Well, as promised, here's the rest of the bonuses~!
I scanned and translated etc. them as usual. :D ❤
Click if you want a big version of the trio image.
Btw, you can of course make icons/wallpapers/etc. with the art, since it's official art and just scanned.
But please, don't post on DeviantArt as if it was your own art. ^^; So many people do that, and it's just wrong on so many levels. ^^;;;
Coloring images for fun is fine, but that's something to be posted in blogs etc.
Reposting scans in art galleries, especially without changing anything, is not right, because it's the same as passing Hino-sensei's art as your own. ^^;
So please don't forget that, draw fanart as much as you'd like, but don't pass other people's art for your own creation, please! ^^/)
Warning: Ignore the bits with pervy yaoi etc. ramblings if you are an innocent soul or hate yaoi. XD *lol*
( Lovely thingies this way~ :DCollapse )
And that's it for now~! :D *hopes you've enjoyed the bonuses~! ❤❤❤
And please, don't forget to buy your local official releases of the VK manga and anime! :D
(Don't fall for the bootlegs, the anime pirated DVDs are so often made with stolen subs AND are generally of horrible quality. Please make sure to only buy the official DVDs and books, otherwise you're not supporting VK since the money goes to bootleggers instead of to the author etc. ^^;;;)
It's important. D: Any series dies without support, and VK may be popular, but it's popular for a shojo manga series, which means not that much compared to big shonen manga blockbusters. We have to support the series we love, as all series die without support. ^^;/
And, uhm, if anyone feels like writing ANY yaoi fanfiction of Zero x Kaname at the ball or Aidou x Kaname with the chickpeas in the pantry, I'd be utterly delighted to read your fic!! 8D❤❤❤
(And/or the main trio together, and so many other lovely possibilities. X3 ❤)
Jul. 11th, 2010 | 12:37 am
As I promised the other day, I scanned the poster image from the VK artbook, which also happens to be the cover image. :D
The cover is a foldout that spans the entire lenght of the book from front to back. As a result, if you only look at one side of it, you only see Zero and Yuuki on one side and Kaname and Yuuki on the other side.
Because of this, at first when the front cover thumbnails had been released prior to the book being out, we all wondered if the cover would be one pairing, but then Hino-sensei quickly went public to say that nope, the whole trio is on the cover once you see it unfolded. (Well, you probably already know all of this if you've been following my previous posts since I've been really eagerly waiting for the artbook and posting any news of it right away since a while ago. :D)
I've already shown you the full cover also in past posts, but now that I have the book and a moment to scan some stuff, here's the actual full poster image~! :D<3
❤ Yuuki & her sexy male harem. 8D~ ❤
( More + wallpapers of the cover image this way. :DCollapse )
As promised also, I'll bring you more artbook pics later, of the inside of the book etc. as previews etc. for all the lovely people interested in buying the book and supporting the series. :D❤
But right now I'm running around doing various RL things I didn't have time to do during the days where I was buried under deadlines lately, and so I didn't get the time to do this today yet.
I did however get a moment to scan the bonuses for volume 12 earlier, and as soon as I have time to scanlate the ones with text I'll post them too. :D
Zero fans will be particularly happy to see the bonuses because, probably to compensate a bit for the lack of Zero in the story itself (due to the current arc being more centered on Kaname), Hino-sensei did lovely bonus thingies of him for the volume~!<3
Including a delicious page of Zero looking all sexy, and a two pages bonus with Zero & Bloody Rose.<3 (Being annoyed by the chairman. XD *lol*)
There's also the lovely bonus I mentioned from the preview in the chapter last month, with Aidou counting the chickpeas, and which has a droolworthy moment for fans of Aidou x Kaname. 8D~~~~~~~~~ *yaoi fangirl is so happy and somehow has mind images of Aidou and Kaname tumbling down together among the bags of chickpeas in the pantry* XD; *lol*
I'll be back with more (the artbook previews and the bonuses from vol.12) sometime later, though probably not tomorrow. Not sure yet. *running all over the place*
So just stay tuned for the rest, and see you later~! ^-^/♥
And if you haven't seen it before, my previous post has various links through which you can order the artbook, as well as through which you can order the fanbook in English and VK novel 01 in English. ^^/♥
So if you haven't ordered your artbook or other before, you might want to drop by that post~! :D
Jul. 9th, 2010 | 07:34 pm
mood: *YAOI HAPPY* XD
*BREATHE, FINALLY* XDD; ❤
W00T~ Finally, freedom from that work deadline! XD *finished it and rushed to the shop to pick up the artbook etc. FINALLY*
Yep, my poor books have been sitting there all lonely waiting for me to pick them up this whole week. ^^;; *was crushed under a pile of work and didn't get to leave the desk for days*
But today, I finally got to rush there and pick up the books!! *______________*
I have to go
(And also the thumbnail gallery so that you can know the exact contents of the entire book. X3 *hopes it will get people interested and buying the book/supporting the series*)
Aside from the wonderful artbook, Volume 12 is packed full of awesome bonuses!!! *_______* ❤❤❤
I'll scan those too later sometime, but I just HAD TO rush here to make this post so that you could see asap the wonderful awesomeness of this pic!! XD XD
It's the end-of-book bonus for volume 12 of the VK manga. :D
You probably remember that, a while ago, there was a contest on LaLa, in which VK fans could send in their ideas for what they'd like to see the VK characters cosplaying as.
The fan who won the contest had asked for an angels & demons themed illustration, which Hino-sensei drew for them and you've all seen several times since then, since it was on LaLa as a chapter cover and so on. :D
However, there were many other cosplay ideas from the contest, that didn't get used, including people who wanted to see Kaname cross-dressing. XD XD (We've seen "Zeroko" when Ichiru cross-dressed to annoy Zero in another bonus, and people have long been very curious to see Kaname in such a way too. XD *lol*)
Well, Hino-sensei made the day of all of us fans who like that sort of thing (and/or yaoi etc. XD), by giving us not only one of them but BOTH KANAME AND ZERO CROSS-DRESSING. 8DDDDDD
Queen Kaname is deadly sexy, but Alice Zero is complete awesomeness too!! XD<333
Click if you want to see a bigger version of the pic. :D
Kaname as the Queen-of-hearts with a dress, long painted nails, and gorgeous jewelry etc., Zero as Alice (he seems so, erm, delighted to be in that outfit XD;;; *rotfl* *is choking on laughter at his expression*), and Yuuki munching on a cupcake and being all cute as the rabbit, while the queen pets her head. 8DDDDD
(Hino-sensei is the one who put the text saying queen or witch, probably because there's some people who use that term too for the Queen in Alice in Wonderland. The batwing shapes of the dress details sure add to the impressiveness and to that sort of look. 8D *stares at Kaname's
The wonderfulness of that pic is such that there's not enough words to describe it, hahahaha~~~ XD *is torn between being so amused by seeing them in dresses, or simply nosebleeding so much at the hotness potential of it* 8DDDDDD
*wants to draw SO MUCH yaoi fanart of Alice!Zero x Queen!Kaname* 8D~
*laughing but also nosebleeding so much at the pic, has a moronic grin on her face* XDDDDDDDDDDD❤❤❤
I'll be back with the artbook pics and VK 12 bonuses etc. sometime when I can, so stay tuned for more lovely VK fangirlable stuff later~! X3
(It might be tomorrow rather than today depending on RL stuff and being busy or not.)
