Written for [livejournal.com profile] kestrelsan for our 2011 Sekrit Holiday Fic Exchange! I always think of these three as the Holy Triangle: the Father, the Son, and the Sad-Eyed Boyfriend.

(If you need a refresher: Guo Guang ~= Tezuka, Hai Tang ~= Kaidoh, Zhen Zhi ~= Inui)

Prince of Tennis Chinese Drama (Wang Qiu Wang Zi), Zhen Zhi/Hai Tang, Guo Guang/Hai Tang, R, 2300 words.
Every story has two sides. Every triangle has three.

Shin Tenipuri anime starts Jan 4 and Crunchyroll will be streaming it! As unsatisfying as the manga has turned out to be, I am still ridiculously excited and will be following every episode. :) It's even airing on my day off, so I can be in front of the TV the very minute it's available. Except this week, since I have an optometrist appointment and will have blurry vision for hours after. :(

I have been re-watching the Prince of Tennis Chinese drama again. I think I love it even more every time.

Hai Tang and Cheng Wu cuddling on a bench

The training camp, where they have to trick Hai Tang and Cheng Wu into sharing a room so they'll bond and become a good doubles pair! And Zhen Zhi constantly saying what a bad idea that is, it can't work, why don't Hai Tang and I make a doubles pair, etc, until Guo Guang yells at him to put his personal feelings aside and think about the team!

If you're a tenipuri fan and haven't watched the drama, I highly recommend it. DoReMii subbed both seasons.

I have been watching many other things as well, more about them another day. :)

1. Giant Killing ep 5 is subbed! (I will be working on my main pimp post soon, but don't wait for me if you want to check it out.)

2. Slate article: Why do we love to root for the underdog? This made me think a lot about my devotion to sports series, which, with very few exceptions (*cough* tenipuri *cough*), are all about the struggle and rise of the underdog.

3. Fanfic is Immoral!, an articulate, well-reasoned, and kick-ass post by [livejournal.com profile] pandarus in response to that whole Diana Gabaldon thing.

4. Finally found some thongs at La Senza that are not utterly painful to wear. This has been a long and expensive difficult search. But it turns out there are only two ways to avoid Visible Panty Line: thongs or nothing. (Or I guess I could stop wearing my skirts so tight, but what fun would that be?) And since opaque tights season is drawing to a close, nothing is no longer an option. I also got some great satin pyjamas there so I can look just as glamourous when I'm watching anime and eating cheese as when I'm out and about.

5. During the aforementioned search, I came across the C-String. Seriously, that thing isn't just going to pop off and fall to the floor while you're giving an important presentation to a big client because why?

6. You saw the most recent subbed dramapuri episodes, right? There was a SHOWER SCENE. Also, crazy, crazy tennis. And Hai Tang. Lovely, lovely Hai Tang.


Dear friends in fandom, you bring me much joy. ♥

Subs are out! I have watched them! [ I hope my screencaps load -- LJ scrapbook has been for shit lately. ]



every day is like survival, you're my lover, not my rival )

What did you think?

* We must be due for new Shin Tenipuri raws soon. *braces for the crack* I think we need some serious MomoKai there soon, to balance out the Data Pair. Or just because it would be awesome.

* [livejournal.com profile] otpimpchallenge started posting and the story written FOR me was the very first! A Bird in the Hand by [livejournal.com profile] tomiyo_hikura2, Niou/Ootori. Choutarou is just darling and Niou is very fun. :)

* I'm still working on my pinch-hit for the exchange, so I haven't read the other stories posted yet, but I'll catch up as soon as I've got my edits done. I'm hoping for lots of new strange pairings!

* I made a syndicated LJ feed for the new and updated Prince of Tennis stories posted on fanfiction.net, so if you're interested in keeping up with that, it's here: [livejournal.com profile] tenipuri_ffn

* I can't decide whether to start re-watching the anime or the Chinese drama from the beginning. Any advice?

* Which pairing is more adorable: Momo/Kaidoh or Cheng Wu/Hai Tang?

* Which pairing makes your heart hurt more: Inui/Kaidoh or Zhen Zhi/Hai Tang?

* Which pairing is hotter: Tezuka/Kaidoh or Daddy Guo Guang/ Hai Tang?

* I like cheese. [ removed for non-relevance to post subject ]

New Chinese Prince of Tennis ep 16 sub out from DoReMii! Mine is still downloading so expect flail after I've watched it. Okay, maybe a little bit now: *flail*

✩ I'm sure you've all seen the scanlations for shin tenipuri 19 & 20 by now. All I have to add is I'm still loving the crack oh-so-very much and I'm in fucking Data Pair Paradise.

✩ I've only just begun my Harry Potter re-read and already the fic ideas are coming back to me. That canon has such incredible scope -- I hope I follow through and get some writing done there. (Maybe that one H/D story I tried and tried and tried to write but couldn't.) It's giving me such a warm fuzzy feeling to revisit the canon.

✩ I have figured out A Plan re LJ/DW now. LJ is my home base. I'm reading everyone here except for a tiny handful of journals I'm following on DW. If I try to follow any more there, I'll get too fragmented and just give up. I'm going to cross-post everything except: fic, which I'll link up from DW; locked entries, which I hardly ever make; posts I make from my iPhone that I'm too lazy to cross-post later, which are probably not that interesting anyhow. Comments will be directed back to LJ.

✩ I've been re-watching Ouran High School Host Club since seeing that YouTube PoT parody vid last week. I'd forgotten just how good it is. And how all the stuff with Hikaru and Kaoru makes me hurt. In a good way.

✩ Cheese, coffee, or chocolate? Which to have?

Do Re Mii blog post with torrent.

This drama just gets better and better. First training camp, and now this. ♥

oh boys )

Unrelated to this episode: We re-watched the live-action PoT movie recently and I was really struck by how much the Chinese drama draws on it! The opening, where Ryoma comes to the school and Kaidoh challenges him to a match, is spot on. And after the Fudomine match, where they're worrying about Ryoma using nittoryu and such. Only the drama isn't lame like the movie.

Also unrelated: After watching Federer play Djokovic at the US Open, I will never again doubt Prince of Tennis. It's all possible. Even the dinosaurs.
