I just realized how alike Will/Hannibal and Charles/Erik are.

Will is an empath, Charles is a telepath, they both isolate themselves to keep out the psychic impressions from other people.

Both are betrayed by Erik/Hannibal, who does things they can't forgive and takes away their beloved Raven/Abigail.

Erik and Hannibal do things that they recognize others would call immoral, but they view as moral according to their own morality. (The discussion of Hannibal's beautiful = moral vs. Will's moral = beautiful has been illuminating.)

Both pairings are driven apart by their differing moral codes even though they love each other.

And those differing moral codes are so fundamental to their relationship that I can't read fics where they truly agree philosophically (fulldark!Will or whatever). On the other hand, AUs are a great way of reducing the stakes of those differences so we can have a happy ending.

1. JOHNNY IS MARRIED. I stop checking skating_meme for *three months* and Johnny gets a boyfriend and gets married! I AM SO HAPPY. God, I hope it works out. THEY ARE SO ADORABLE. And Johnny has gone back to Galina and is making Sochi noises! And SOI is no longer sponsored by Smuckers, has dropped Evan for asking too much money, and Evan is not competing in the Grand Prix because he wanted too much money from the USFSA. USFSA publicly tweeted congrats to Johnny's marriage while USFSA favorites have been backlashing Evan.


I don't even care about skating_meme's wank/backlashing/concern trolling, the Russian wives' crazy, Tara's charity debacle, Moskvina's show kerfluffle, the Korean fans, Johnny's constant triggering of my embarrassment squick, and Ueli chained up in Stephane's basement. I don't even care.

Johnny is *married*. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD I keep remembering and being ridic happy.

I might even watch an event or two. If America's field weren't so pathetic and meme weren't so dead...

Also, it's hilarious to go to meme now and see the Johnny/Stephane find & replaces of fics that I just read in XMFC.

2. I will never be done with XMFC fic. I am drowning in fic, in reclists, in WIPs. Thank God for http://twitter.com/firstclasswips# or I would be drowning in tabs as well. But aside from a few fluffy fics, most XMFC fics are soul-destroying and NOT happying, which is why it's good I have:

3. COUNTDOWN. How amazing/hilarious was Countdown!? Sato falling on his ass! Andalucia! Matchy being a BAMF! K8 as crazy food! Tsubasa's hilarious face! KinKi being deadpan. Arashi being awesome performers! V6's HILARIOUS SEX SONG WHAT. The tiny junior group from Utena whose sex song is also WHAT in a far more horrifying way. Toma and Pi clearly having their own ~private~ NYE celebration away from Countdown. (CDTV!Pi said he was spending it quietly at home! Clearly this is secret code, as the song goes.)

4. Heikeha! They took over a SCP episode and did a concert! Yara's black hair is cute. The only new song was their version of Garasu no Juudai. I have to say, Taichi is a genius. I usually HATE easy listening and jazz. But his arrangement, oh my God, makes me so turned on. Those sweet jazz sounds.

5. KinKi's hilarious new PV. It is about an oddly shaped rock. As in stone. No really.

[livejournal.com profile] inseiko's thoughts are dead on. I have not actually read the lyrics yet, but my deep thoughts on the PV can be found here. )
A++++ would LOL again.

I've been noticing this phenomenon for a while now, but seriously EVERY SONG on the radio, every song I hear anywhere, is obviously Erik/Charles. There is NO SONG that I cannot vid in my head to them. Their love is so multi-powered, the power of secretly influencing all songs ever is clearly a secondary mutation. I've found Erik especially present in girlpop.
