“I’m sorry I’m not Lily.”
“Why are you bringing her up?”
“Cause the two of you are an item.”
“Sheesh Kino! I’m told you, give it a rest and answer my question.”
Yuki knew that he had to tell her. He knew Kino was completely wrong. But that meant telling her how he truly felt, and he didn’t have the confidence; especially, in front of Eric. He didn’t think he was ready to fully bear the responsibilities when he couldn’t even keep up with Kino half the time. Now frustrated with himself, he tried to control his heart from messing with his head, to no avail.

So I’m gonna ramble here cause I’ve blocked all the other webpages I usually use to distract myself.
For those who don’t know, I have been writting a series of short compilation stories about a group of characters I’ve dreamt off one night. I posted the somewhat finished chapters on my blog (granted they are out of order). My last post was Kino’s birthday which is set in their grade 11 year of high school.
I’ve got a couple more story chapters in the works.
I have Yuki’s birthday almost fully written. I’m still scripting the essential part.
I also have the chapter where Yuki realizes his feelings for Kino in the works. I’ve managed to combine a few ideas together so hopefully that will put itself together when I go back to it.
I am still trying to work out my side characters because I really do want them to come into play and interact with Kino.
For Mayu, I see her as the character who gets destroyed and then put together again. I see her getting herself in all sorts of trouble out of spite and stupidity.
Nadoka is the smart and cool headed one, but is aimless and has no goal in life.
Eric is obviously her crush and starts out as a playboy.
Keith will be Mayu’s first boyfriend and her lover. The two of them will fumble around and screw over but it’ll work out in the end…I guess.
Lily will probably have the smallest role as being the rival in love for Yuki. BITCH.
It’s been many years since I dreamt about Kino and Yuki, and I’m impressed as to how far this project has been coming along…lol!

Sayaka Miki, a character from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. She is a character of principles, moral, and justice; a stereotypical heroine. However, she is not the main character, she is the best friend, a secondary character, a mere tragedy to push the main character into action. Thus, she chose to redefine her self as a method of denial. It is her arrogance that cause her to fall to her demise. Thus, making her the tragic magical girl.
The root of her problems is the very wish she made to become a magical girl: restoring Kamijou’s hands. Although a selfless wish on the surface, it really has to be selfish. Not only did she ignore Mami’s warning, she did not thought through her wish thoroughly enough. In order for her wish to be considered a truly selfless act Sayaka must be willing to accept the consequences, not so much being aware of them. It is because of her vague understanding of the gravity of her wish that she is forced to deny all allegations of the sort when confronted by Kyouko and become arrogant. Being innocent, Sayaka took it upon herself to become the advocat of justice despite not being credible, which makes her overly righteous to the point it was almost sickening to watch her. For example, when Kyouko explains to Sayaka there has to be a balance of happiness and despair, Sayaka chose to ignore her invaluable words because she could not be trusted (represented by the declining the stolen apple). Yet, Sayaka herself is a hypocrite, saying she will protect those with no gratification, when she initially made her wish hoping she would recieve Kamijou’s gratitude. Another example is when Homura tries to put an end to Sayaka’s foolish rampage of witch hunts: instead of taking the grief seed, she tosses it because it was an action indirectly meant to protect Madoka rather than purely being focused on Sayaka. In these context, Sayaka’s righteous parade could be seen as a mere act to get people to notice her because her unrequited love doesn’t (mainly because she wouldn’t allow him to after discovering her physical condition.) Sayaka may also feel shadowed by Madoka. As the secondary character, it was hammered down onto her by her fellow magical girls, and kyubey that she is not the strongest; Madoka held unimaginable amount of power and could do greater things. So it is reasonable to view her actions as arrogant. It is because of her arrogance despite being a hypocrite that degraded her sanity. All of this is proportional to her deteriorating relationship with Kamijou. When she finally comes to the conclusion that not everything is rainbow and sunshine is when she falls into true despair and turns into a witch. By the end of episode eight, she has come to a full understanding of what it meant to be selfless: saving countless of lives won’t always bring you satisfaction. Of course, this comes too late when she has already made the wish to heal Kamijou’s hands. Perhaps if she had known she would have not chosen to become a magical girl, perhaps if she had known she would have found another purpose, perhaps if she had known she would have been happier; yet, she did not and the regret from her despair allowed her to see just how truly she was a fool.
This disasterous (yet predictable) fall due to her faults that makes her the tragic heroine of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

Some notes from the Panda General.
I have great timing, since semi was last friday (mind you I didn’t go cause I’m an antisocial emo person.)
Anyway, I didn’t look over it a lot, so if it’s badly written, my apologies. I will fix it.
Obviously, because I’ve never been to a school dance, I wouldn’t know what it was like, so I just assumed it involved a lot of people talking, and a lot of loud music, and a lot of people in dresses and suits.
This part of the story was set when Kino and Yuki are 2nd years (Grade 11) at Grandia School. Around third term. Essentially it’s a very prestigious school with a lot of rich kids, and a few students who are on scholarships, Kino being one of them. Basically this is the beginning of a lot of shit that happens later.
Originally, I was planning for Kino to end up not going because Yuki was already taken or busy. It be something like, he was busy so he told Kino he wouldn’t be able to come. But then I didn’t know how to make her cry (yeah I’m mean, I wanted to make her cry.) So I went with the he was already taken route cause then I could have someone else make her cry instead of Yuki.
Someone who read the story commented on how he always says she’s cute. The main reason was because I suck at writing so I repeat the same word OVER again. Really need to fix that. Uhh but then I thought later maybe it was a form of habit, because Kino does really see herself as a person but a monster, or a burden. Man, I’m making him out to be a sweet person with a girly name.
Like I mentioned last time, everyone’s names are four letters long XD Except Nadako…and Keith who only makes a minor appearance.
Here’s a list of everyone mentioned in this story FULL name:
Rolland Eric Lea
So Eric’s actual name is Rolland, but again, four letter short names are my thing.
Since I skipped the 1st term part of the story, I’ll give a brief descriptions of the characters
Mayu: daughter of some goverment official in the states. Used to be Yuki’s fiance but yeah that didn’t turn out well. It was an arranged marriage.
Nadako: daughter of a Japanese family who won the lottery.
Eric: Son of the director of Grandia College (the school). The school’s Prince.
Keith: Mayu’s stalker, he’s fairly rich too.
(to be continued…)

I have two tests tomorrow, and what better way to screw myself over then to watch a movie that makes me cry. Koizora is a love story that was originally published on a popular cellphone blog in Japan. It was written by Mika, who says the story is based of her own experiences. In summary, Mika (the main female character named after the author,) fell in love with a school mate named Hiroki, or simply Hiro. Throughout the novel, and movie, Mika had to face many trials such as rape, abortion, and betrayal. But with the help of Hiro, family, and friends, she manages to overcome these trials. The movie started off very light and happy, but it was downhill from there. It was very emotional. Although I cried at the end, it was still really sad to watch. Especially, when I found out half way through (took a break) that the story was based on the author’s experiences. If I was to compare this with any other drama, it is similar to 1 Litre of Tears in terms of depressing factor, but focusing on romance.
Overall, I really liked watching it. It’s a nice shock to the systems, not sure if that’s good for me or not but we’ll see ^^p
Here’s one of the insert songs that played in the movie. Warning, there may be spoilers.

Ikimono Gakari “Planetarium”
Earlier in the year I posted about their other single “Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa Utsukushi”. Ikimono Gakari’s latest single “Planetarium” definitely surpasses “Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa utsukushi” and is one of their better ballads. This song is amazingly beautiful. I cried listening to it cause it just felt so reassuring for some odd reason. Even the PV is a good watch. Kiyoe’s voice fits the song very well and easy on the ears. The piano gives a nice starry like quality, and the the strings make me feel like I’m soaring in the night sky, which I find very calming for someone who’s angsty on a daily bases. Unlike most of Ikimono Gakari’s other songs, this song doesn’t have a harmonica. Although I’m not complaining because the harmonica would just change the tone of the song completely. Overall, great song to listen to.
Also, WordPress is toolish for not letting me post the song file.
