( This chapter which I am about to review has nothing to do with tumblr, or tumbling! )
( But... happy? I guess?? )
P.S. so on Saturday my sis was caller number 7 to 102.7 Fresh FM and won tickets to the NYC premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (PART 2!!), and then on Monday we totally fucking WENT to that premiere, baby, we went there and we SAW that movie, dudes. We saw the shit out of it. AND IT WAS AMAAAAAAAZINNNG and I really should just do a whole separate post on that but it was one of those things where I just have so many ~feelings~ about it that I'm not really sure how to put it into words. But probably maybe I will make a post about it in a day or so with pictures and lots of capslocking about how HOLY SHIT I WAS IN THE SAME ROOM WITH RUPERT GRINT EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE LIKE A THOUSAND OTHER PEOPLE THERE, . For now, though, I just had to mention it because it would be pretty ridiculous if the most interesting thing that has happened to me in like years just came and went and the next day all I posted about was KHR.
Though in fairness, seriously! WHY IS IT OUT ON A TUESDAY. ?? Well, whatever.
But probably you didn't come here to listen to me blather on about fic! You came because once again it is the weekend and time to sit around the campfire and tell scary stories to each other about Daemon Spade, the sinister man who comes in the night and stares at children with his hideous giant torso eyeballs, and who fills elevators with blood and stuff.
( The more he feeds on your fear, the longer his hair grows! )
P.S. I am going to finish that meme! (No, really! There is a reason I didn't just jump straight to the Homestuck prompt. I AM LEAVING IT THERE AS INCENTIVE.) I just need to figure out wtf to do about fics first because orz.
( IS THIS CHAPTER RICHER OR POORER? Man, all I know is I still love it anyway. )
( In this chapter I hope someone punches Daemon in the face again! )
Anyway (IS ANYONE EVEN OUT THERE READING THIS ANYMORE??), I missed like five chapters apparently, so what I am going to do is post a review a day for five days. And then on the sixth day, I am going to the beach! AND THEN ON THE SEVENTH DAY I WILL COME BACK AND DO THE SIXTH REVIEW. It almost worked out nicely, but what are you gonna do.
So I think we are starting with KHR 336!
( I need a new tag that's somewhere in between 'yay new chapter' and 'yay old chapter.' Something like, 'yay chapter that is new to me but everyone else already read six weeks ago'...? )
REGARDLESS! It occurs to you in a moment of holy-shit-what that you have not made a post in your journal since fucking April. Fucking April SEVENTEENTH. Seriously, did you just forget the Internet even existed?? That is twenty-four fucking days that passed where you did not even log in to your journal. If you weren't so busy now furiously rushing to post stupid meta-updates, you would take a moment to go hang your head in shame somewhere.
Sadly, there is no time for that. KHR 336 is already on the horizon, and unless you really want to cross that unspoken invisible line and post a triple-chapter recap (MADNESS), you know what it is that you must do.
Anyway, it appears that while I was away, KHR boldly challenged readers of the 21st century by becoming the first SJ manga to feature an openly gay main character! Or at least, that's what I took away from chapter 332. It's been a week since I first skimmed it, but I distinctly recall leaving with an impression of lots of explosions, heartwarming declarations of boyhood affections, and really not much else! So this will probably be a short-ish recap, done quickly and haphazardly in preparation to move on to chapter 333 which I haven't read yet and am super excited for because I LOVES ME SOME PRIMOS, OH YES I DO.
( So let us MAKE HASTE. )
And Happy Belated and/or Soon-to-Be Birthday to half_sleeping, reidluver, betterinorange, azartti, and chibikaya! ♥ ♥ ♥
( COME ONE COME ALL )
Happy Oh-So-Belated Birthday to smiles1777, ojuzu, snapdraw_gone, and melissa_42! ♥ And Happy Birthday to gameazel as well! And sawako_shota and ever_free since I'm kidding myself if I think I'm making another post before the 16th. XD Anyway, much love to all you guys, hope you had, are having, or will have a wonderful day. :)
( And it's also the number of the latest KHR chapter! How weird is that? )
On a separate note, it's still a couple of weeks till New Year's but I've already decided that I'm going to make it one of my resolutions to be more consistent about comment replies. I've gotten so bad in the past few months, it's ridiculous. I just let everything pile up and then I get all discouraged whenever I log in because there's so much to get to and I don't have the energy to do it all but then I feel like an ass for just ignoring people, especially since you guys are all so awesome and leave detailed comments that point out stuff I hadn't noticed and raise really interesting points that I want to discuss. But I just get lazy and intimidated. ;;
So my new goal is to get to at least 3 comments a day, since I figure even someone as lazy as I am can't possible be intimidated by that many! START SMALL AND WORK MY WAY UP. That's the new plan. XDb
So a few weeks ago, I got a new job, which has its pros and cons. Pros: I am slightly richer than before (read: still poor as the dickens). Cons: Internet usage is strictly regulated and monitored at the new job, so I'm pretty much away from LJ for about 12 hours a day (including commute and so forth), and sleeping for at least 8 of the other hours. THE FUN PART OF THE DAY JUST GOT A HELL OF A LOT SHORTER.
Plus on top of that there has been Christmassy stuff to take care of and colds to battle and so forth blah blah long story short I haven't reviewed the last two KHR chapters yet! Which was probably obvious already BUT I MUST MAKE EXCUSES FOR IT, OKAY. 8(
Anyway, what I was thinking was that I would wait until chapter 318 came out and then do like a double review or something. What I did not anticipate was that Vongola GP (a.k.a. KHR on cuteness steroids) would be premiering the same weekend! DAMN YOU AMANO AND TOSHINORI, SNEAKING UP ON ME LIKE THAT.
Soo... I guess it'll be a double review of KHR 317/318*, followed (most likely tomorrow) by a post on GP 01.
*you saw nothing! If you have no clue what I am talking about, then... good. XD
( Idk, I'm making this up as I go. )
Now where did we leave off last week? Oh yes, that's right; Gokudera was being an amazing badass.
( KHR 316, a.k.a. Makeste Can Die Happy Now )
Incidentally, I hope everyone did have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I also hope relaxsama and jewel_song had super-epic birthdays, and readerofasaph, I hope you have an awesome birthday on the 28th as well! ♥
