So, the author of those fantastic Tamaki/Kyouya fics - hooloovoo_too
- commented back to my spaztastic reviews, sounding quite pleased to get such intensely positive feedback. I also may have mentioned my preference for Integra/Kyouya, on which she also commented.
Kyouya/Integra? That's one I never would have thought of in a million years, but since you suggested it, it makes an eerie amount of sense. I like Ouran a lot better than Hellsing (I think it takes itself less seriously, and as a result, the plot holes tend to be less obvious), but I love the idea of Kyouya and Integra playing off each other.
AHHHH, THE VINDICATION. IT TASTES GOOD.
And also, as I said in my reply, boosts my expectations for actually having a readership for my insane crossover fic, heh. (It is a brilliant idea for a ship and other stuff, I know, I just don't know how many people know and love both Ouran and Hellsing [...and maybe Harry Potter too] and are willing to try something with them combined.
On a related note, tonight I found an old entry in my personal journal with a defensive explanation of my tendency to crossover - I described it as "I tie everything I love into everything else I love." Indeed. The ultimate goal is a great mass of everything I love at once,
bringing on supreme happiness and euphoria of the sort which only recreational drugs are supposed to achieve.
To continue plugging hooloovoo_too
(am now watching that fic journal of hers) - I read her few other Ouran fics, and would like to specifically link to The Freckles in Our Eyes Are Mirror Images
, which is a series of vignettes on the twins as they grew up. Very intriguing and entertaining set of stories with them, definitely. One quote:
Hikaru toddles over to the nurse and yanks at her skirts. “We got hurt,” he says, jerking her urgently in Kaoru’s direction. “We’re bleeding,” and it takes her fifteen seconds of panicked searching to realize that he means Kaoru instead of himself.
Oh, and one more because I'm dying for this to happen in my world so Integra can have a specific reaction, but I don't know how to tie them together. So, the twins' nurse is giving them sex-ed when they're thirteen (awesome scene):
“Men have penises,” she says matter of factly, “and you can have sex with them.”
Integra: DO GO ON.
And finally, I recently got three new reviews (from the same person), one each for The Funeral, Out of the Dungeon
, and By the Way, a Vampire Ate My Uncle
. The first is "simply wonderful," but the other two are more pleasing. One is nearly a haiku!
that was very good
very well writtenas was The Funeral
And the third:
i love how you incorporate harry potter without it becoming over bearingthe little snipits of harry potteresque things are lovely
WUAHUAHUA I do not suck at my crossoverness. This is certainly good.
