rebecky_mo: First look of Usopp after timeskip (Tracks/Raoul)
[personal profile] rebecky_mo
So I was over at Fandom_Secrets, reading today's batch. Among them was one for the new Ai No Kusabi OVA's (that are, supposedly, finally coming out next year). Someone posted a couple screens of the originals (which are still gorgeous) with Iason and Riki.

And all I see now is Android!Tracks and Raoul in them. And yeah, I'm good with that. All Riki would need is longer hair, and Iason is more than 'perfect'-looking enough to be Tracks. It's hot.

But the idea of Track and Raoul going through the entire plot of AnK in the same way...the whole 'pet' thing, the resentments/reluctant emotions, the ending...Both of them have enough crap to deal with in my headcanon, I don't like them to be the sources of said crap to each other. I have a bad case of the fandom sads now. D:

Finishing shortbread cookies can wait until tomorrow. I need some happy, diabetes-inducing R/T to make me feel better.

I know nothing about AnK but that's...pretty adorable you get sad over sadness to otps-- I'm EXACTLY THE SAME and it's sometimes silly when I do it, haha.

Did you get those chibi links I sent you on dA? THOSE ARE CUTE ENOUGH TO CAUSE A CAVITY OR TWO

In a nutshell? There's two classes; the elite test-tube babies like Iason (who works for the 'God', Jupiter), and the normally born 'mongrels' (aka gang leader Riki). Elites usually take on 'pets' to enjoy and watch, though not engage in sex with. Iason breaks that rule. Riki fights the entire way, but goddamn FEELINGS start kicking in. People on both sides don't like it. It's not a happy ending. T_T

I feel silly for it too, but the whole dynamic I like about Tracks/Raoul is that they're so different in a million ways, but treat each other as equals and have great chemistry. The 'pet' dynamic and all the other shit in AnK is so totally the other way of my thinking...there's AU, then there's characters who look/sound right, but don't act right.

Haven't been on dA lately, BUT I HAVE NOW, AGDLDFKJGAD SO MUCH LURVE. <3333333

Excellent job on your first giant robot pictures! 8D You really got the attitude in them, and I'm loving the duo one. Tracks doesn't look too impressed with Raoul there. XDDD *saves to desktop foreverrrrrr* I still owe you money too, yeah? Another $15?

Now, I wanna make sure of something; is it okay if I show my TF Fandom friends the pics of them and Jupiter and make them totally jealous, BWAHAHAHA!? I'd show them low-res, or link them to your dA submissons, depending on if you put them up. Say no, and it doesn't happen.

Haha, you can do whatever you want with them! I forgot to ask if I could post them on dA but you can share the fullsizes around and whatever you wanna do! You paid for them, after all. I apologize yet again over how long they took, that was a BAD FEW WEEKS for me but they were fun to do, in the end!

I'll have to show them off tomorrow then. >D And you've totally got permisson to put them on your dA!

Hey, no problem on the time; the holiday season is hectic at the best times, and when it's not the best times...well, let's just say I get that. <3 Glad you had some fun with them!

Android Tracks... I'd read that. 8D

Actually, I do have this idea of an AU-verse, where a whole different situation brings the 'bots to Earth, and they kinda become android-ish (or at least take on smaller forms). It'd feature Tracks/Raoul, and a few other pairings across the TF-verses too.

...But it's kind of become a huge, epic story in my head, and the idea of writing that scares the hell out of me. ._.

That would be a godly, godly AU. I'd read the hell out of that.

I know that feeling. The idea of writing anything longer than a one-shot scares the snot out of me. D:

The most I feel comfortable with is 3-4 parts, and even then I'm afraid I'll be one of THOSE author's, who start something good then never finish it. :< I've been burnt before.

But I keep coming back to this idea. I need to do some SERIOUS plot planning around this bunny, design some new forms, maybe write a few chapters ahead before posting any...we'll see what happens.
