7:05PM - Screencaps

I'm new at this community and I'm quite sad that nothing is going on here!

I have made some TV screencaps of the first episode, if anyone wants them I can upload. Quality is not best but okay I think. They're 768x576.

Just a few teaser caps

Edit: I saw that there is at least one person interested, so I'm uploading the caps as .zip file. There could be some ep2 caps in it, cause the episodes have no time between them, so I didn't know where it ended.

Current mood: tired

Since he's related to our fandom:

Singer-Songwriter Billy Preston Dead at 59

The article doesn't mention his fabulous work on the L/R opening theme though.

It's been a long time since I've had good cause to post here, but that's okay because now I have something that's really worth posting about.

If any of you are familiar with the author Luc Court, who writes all sorts of wonderful FFX-FFX2 fanfiction and many other fandoms to boot, he has just written one of the most incredible L/R fanfictions I have ever read.

Admittedly, I shamlessly requested it when I found out that he'd seen the show.

Anyway, it's set post-series so anyone who hasn't seen the show all the way through may want to avoid it, but do bookmark it and read it when you've finished. It's that good.

Life Support.

Current mood: grateful

12:57AM - Daring you on the count of three...

Say, I just mentioned this on my LJ, for those of you who have me friended, but would anyone be interested in me uploading say, a track or two from the L/R soundtrack a day with yousendit.com, for y'all to download? It'd be from the instrumental soundtrack, I haven't got the vocal one.

Current mood: curious

12:50AM - And now for a slightly less ridiculously fannish question

(but only slightly less *g*) I noticed that Rowe is a lot browner-skinned than most anime characters are. Any votes for whether it's natural or a sun-tan?

10:23PM - Colourbar cry for help

I've spent all weekend expressing my love for L/R by attempting to make a colourbar (this is rapidly going beyond obsession into sickness XD). There's one problem, though - what to use for the tag line. The straightforward "L/R is love" (or should that be "Licensed by Royalty is love"? @_@) seems so dull, but the only remotely witty line I could come up with was "L/R is l/rove" (or "Licensed by Royalty is l/rove")...

11:12PM - Hi y'all, I'm new here :D

Just got the first L/R DVD a week ago, watched those four episodes on Xmas Day, was hooked by the third episode. *g* I'm not sure what it is about L/R that is so compelling...it's quaint and charming and, well, different. It doesn't have that "typical anime" feel to it IMHO. For one thing, the character designs have *shock horror* small eyes (and biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig suits...actually, the suits remind me of the first Batman Animated TV series).

I suppose I should also admit straight out that I like the subplot with Noelle -- yeah, it's really incredibly obvious where that one's heading, but I still like it. It's cute seeing Rowe play the "big brother". Not so sure about slashing Rowe and Jack...I'm sure you good people will convince me, though. ^_~ Not sure at this stage whether I like Rowe or Jack more (can't wait to get the second DVD!!!!!!!!!!^^;;;). From what I've seen of the fandom, most people simply like them both. *g*

Soooo, here's a topic of conversation:

"How did you first hear about/get into L/R?"
For me, there was a link to an anime image from L/R at a fanart journal (claiming that Jack & Rowe look like Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen...no, sorry LotR fangirls, they don't^^). It seemed vaguely cool in an "oooo, spy story?" way, and then for the next few months I totally forgot about it. I like James Bond et al, so when the Madman Propaganda(sic) on Chobits DVD #5 mentioned something along the lines of kisskissbangbang about L/R I remembered seeing that image and knew I had to get it sometime
...however, L/R had so much more to offer than I was expecting. ^__^

6:58PM - Downward

Story Title: Downward

Author's Notes: This couple and show is seriously under-written. >_< I always want to read smut for the fandom, but it's no fun since I have to write all of it myself!
Prompt: Rowe disguises himself and propositions Jack in a nightclub or similar establishment. Jack may or may not be aware of the fact that it is Rowe.

3:30PM - New Blood

Hello, all!

Boy, am I so glad to find an L/R community! Not as busy as I'd hoped, but I'm sure that can be remedied! I might set my devious mind to writing a fic or two someday...

Aaa-anyhow... What I want is to know where I can find mp3s of the music from the series, or better yet, music videos? I'm going to buy the soundtrack, but it's not out in Australia yet to my knowledge.

Current mood: pleased
