Fangirling the Fall Guy  
I've had "Getting Away with Murder" by Papa Roach on repeat all day today.  To class, from class -- well, actually, most of that was talking on the phone to eltea, come to think of it -- and on the train to get much of the way home.

WHY, you ask?  I'LL TELL YOU!

Because of MIKAMI! 8D

Yes.  Mikami.  I'm writing a... relatively... short fic with him in it (blame eltea and the renewed Drabble Game that cropped up at about eleven PM last night), though I shan't tell you anything more than that, because I'd rather shock the hell out of you when I'm done.  Because I'm EVIL. >D

Anyway, the connection here is that a while ago, eltea showed me a really excellent MMV (like an AMV, only with stills from the manga, hence the acronyms) about Mikami to -- you guessed it -- "Getting Away with Murder."  It's here if you wanna watch. :D  And now I can't think about Mikami without thinking of the song and can't think of the song without thinking of Mikami, so... I finally caved at about two this morning and bought the damn thing on iTunes. :P

Really, though, the song was practically written for our pal Teru.  I mean...

Somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
I need to calculate what creates my own madness
And I'm addicted to your punishment
And you're the master
And I am craving this disaster


...is it wrong that I find Mikami really hot despite the fact that he's a mass-murdering psychopath?  He's just misguided...! D:

...and gorgeous... :d  The glasses... and the hair... Heeeee.  8DDDD
You say "raving, drooling, lunatic-fangirl" like it's a bad thing... D:

In response, here's the anime character I fangirl:


And here's another one of him kicking a puppy, which is, you know, way worse than the murder thing, right?

And yet I still love you, Ken Ichijouji!

Couldn't coax YouTube to play the first one... Though him kicking the puppy is slightly scarring. D:

Isn't it funny how there are characters that we'll forgive things we'd NEVER let real people do? XD

It didn't work? How sad. :(

The funny thing is, I don't remember the kick-the-puppy scene from the American version, just saw several clips of it on Youtube. Maybe they cut it because they knew Americans would be repulsed. lol

Here's a different video. It might have something to do with the fact that it's nearly one in the morning, but it almost made me cry.

I tried a bunch of times. D: Got smart and went to Wikipedia for his backstory, though -- quite the emotional baggage on this kid. o__o

Yeah, the poster's notes on the puppy video said something to the effect of it being cut from the English version. No authority on this one, but I swear in fifth grade someone told me that Dragonball Z in Japan had lots of blood flying out of people's mouths all the time, and for the American version, they changed it all to saliva. XD

That's a really lovely video, even without the full context. ;_;

He's a bit deeper than Ash Ketchum, no?

I'd believe that about the blood, though I can't be sure.

Hee, new icon. lol

Rather much. XD Ash, though I didn't really realize it at the time, was pretty darn cardboard...

Don't know how much I trust my memory of a fifth grader's assertion, but it'd kind of make sense. XD

I like it! :D

Sooooo preeettyyyy....

Then again, it probably doesn't hurt that ninety-eight percent of the Death Note guys are, as far as I'm concerned. 8D

Don't they, though? XD Terrible.
