Well, I'm falling behind on my resolution to post more, already; fandoms to the rescue!


Guess who just got Kings Rising and devoured it in a matter of hours? That's right, this snake! What a great finale - the juxtapositions went a fair way toward letting everyone have some "resolved" feelings about their past conflicts.


So Laurent finally managed to combine his dead-brother angst with his undeniable love of Damen, and took out Kastor before Damen's eyes! Fabulous. That whole scene made me so happy (though not untinted with worry, given Damen is busily bleeding on the floor the whole time) and was such a lovely example of the way Damianos and Laurent (and Kastor and Auguste) are mirrors-and-yet-not.

I didn't find the ending abrupt, either; it seemed very in keeping with the release of tensions and the removal of the last obstacle to kingship for both of them. From this point, they rise - nothing to impede them, nothing to tether them.

I've also been rewatching the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime lately, and have just about decided - after browsing a whole lot of fic and having to skim over all the manga-verse and Brotherhood-verse choices - that it's time to pick up one or both of those, too. There's just not enough fic, especially longfic, for the 2003-verse! Not sure yet which I'll go for first; it'll probably come down to "whom do I know that will loan me theirs" and/or "which can I manage to download first." So we'll see!

Fellow FMA fans on my flist, which did you like best? Where would you recommend starting? Do you have any fic recs for me, either for now (from 2003-verse) or for later (after I've started the manga/Brotherhood)? I can hardly wait to have another thing to squee about!
