Hm... has anyone else been having trouble accessing the site? For the last couple days, I've been getting one of those "site could not be found" messages and it's evil...
... oh, well.
So, I've been taking a karate class at BCC for a couple months, and today was my yellow-with-white-stripe belt test. I'm in pain. o_o; But it was fun, and I passed! So I actually have a rank now. XD I'm happy with that. I'll be taking it over the summer at Sensei's dojo, if all goes well, and I'll be picking my belt up there sometime next week. Yay. ^_^;
In other news... my friend Nami is an incredible artist who shares my love of boy-love, and she drew a lovely sketch of two of my roleplaying characters. I decided it was necessary to color it, nerd-with-a-new-drawing-tablet that I am, and this is the result. Right. Lineart is Nami's. Coloring and characters are mine. Cool? Cool.
Oh, and if you find two boys kissing to be distasteful or otherwise offensive... why the hell are you on my site, anyway, come to think of it? The background image is Loveless, for crying out loud, and just for the sake of squicking any homophobes lurking around, I may find something even more lovey than this. So get over it. XD ... Carrying on. If you find pretty samurai boy-love unappealing, you probably shouldn't click that link.
ANYWAY, now that I'm done with that. (Oh, man, I just had a chai tea latte from Starbucks on the way home from my voice recital, and the caffeine is kicking in. As it's almost ten, that's probably bad.) The orange-haired one is Himitsu Katorou (older brother of Himitsu Kaida, my primary character in this RP), a captain in his clan's army. The blonde is Oumori Shiomaru, one of the men in Katorou's squad. They're both very sexy, and... have you ever noticed? There's a word for it... you know, when you add two things, and the ending value ends up being greater than the two amounts put together? OH! Synergy. Shounen-ai is the original source of synergy. Sexy on their own, but somehow, so much sexier together.
... Carrying on. Again. Uhm. I love Katorou. So. Much. He's such a sweet guy, and at the same time, he's so kickass that his father, a general, forbade him from using all of his strength when fighting, so the enemy would always be underestimating the army. So obviously, between those two, he's a much better swordsman, and he's not significantly more effeminate, but he's just too blushy and cute and romantically-awkward to be seme.
It's too bad that he died six years prior to the "current time" in the RP. Makes me want to cry. Shiomaru's alive, though, and I think that he'll show up eventually for the sole purpose of harrassing the male members of the party. XDD And call Kaida "Kaida-chan" just enough to embarrass her completely. (That's what he called her when she was a kid, after all. She's nine years younger than Katorou and ten younger than Shiomaru, so back before Kaida joined the military and got all post-war-angsty, she'd do cute things like sit on their shoulders and hitting them with shinai XDD And she was a tiny little thing. At sixteen years old, she was maybe five feet tall, and probably not more than ninety pounds. So when she was actually young enough that Katorou and Shiomaru would see her at the Himitsu estate - around ten or eleven years - she probably wasn't above four feet, and I'd bet you she weighed less than most raccoons. And yet, at ten years old, she'd been studying kenjutsu for six years and could beat the crap out of most of her father's fifteen-year-old students [who probably weighed thrice as much as she did? Heheh.])
Okay. I am shutting up now.
Edit: I'm sorry. My grammar went down the crap-hole. XD I'm both tired AND wired, thanks to that chai tea... *runs into a wall*
