I haven't done one of these in a while. Partly because I've been busy, but mostly just because most of the people I chat with about LD are on LJ and not DW (come guys, LJ sucks, get your asses over here - we have cookies). BUT THEN. I remembered the cross-post feature. And lo, Amanda did grin. And her eyes did feast upon the blood and the groping and the blatant Clampservice-

And so flailing did commence. :3



First off - big thanks to ohdearyme/unknownusername for the scanslation - THAT WAS FAST <333

So, it appears that the little chibi-Yuuko thing that Kazahaya has been channeling is, in fact, a vampire. Mmmm vampires. I fucking hate vampires, mostly. Yet for some reason, when there is the tantalizing hint of self-sacrifice wafting around them, I tend to soften this view. Or maybe I just like Clamp vampires (Clampires? THEY SUCK YOUR ANGST OUT THROUGH YOUR TOES.) Either way, while Kazahaya was busy being all adorably blood-lusty nommy, this happened:

THAT'S RIGHT RIKUOU. YOU GET DOWN WITH YOUR BAD SELF. SLICE THAT NECK OPEN WITH YOUR POWERS OF EVIL BREAKAGE.

*ahem* Someone really needs to teach Clamp (and authors of vampiric fiction generally) about anatomy - you know, how that third-largest artery in your body (and the one that supplies ~80% of the brain) is RIGHT FUCKING THERE and so slicing your neck open is kind of a STUPID thing to do. Oh well. In my little head cannon, Rikuou's slicy-power isn't strong enough to actually tear through the carotid sheath and he only manages to open up the external jugular vein (which is still stupid, but will probably kill him slower >.>). VAMPIRES, MAN. INDUCING POOR ANATOMICAL NARRATIVE CHOICES SINCE 1897.

Not that I am in any way opposing this turn of events. In fact, I think it's pretty much crystalized for me that I have a none-too-subtle lady-boner thing for self-sacrifice and possibly unhealthy levels of neediness in friendships/relationships. WHOOPS.

ANYWAY. It finally dawns on Rikuou that Kazahaya isn't actually a vampire (LOL GJGJ dear, remember how that was all a big part of the "don't touch things you don't want possessing you this category does not automatically include my penis JSY" speech you gave??), but is, in fact, channeling the little chibi-Yuuko thing. SO. Nommage happens. And little chibi-Yuuko is so pleased with Rikuou's angst flavor that she deigns to drop this bit of wisdom:

 

Oh. Oh my. Is this going to be the biggest, angstiest angstbomb to ever drop on Angsttown?? I SURE HOPE SO. My life has been horribly empty without new Clamp angst. Oh sure, there's been No.6 to ease some of the pain, BUT IT'S JUST NOT THE SAME. I mean. Let's discuss the possibilities of just how fucked up this has the potential to become.

I've always kind of entertained the idea that maybe Rikuou hurt Tsukiko accidentally and repressed the memory after she ran away. This is largely because of his tattoo, which looks a lot like Fay's - maybe it's holding back the true force of his destruction power? I dunno. Speculation at its finest. But then I remember this:


 

Which - well. Is that Kei's? Is it Kazahaya's, from his pretty-pretty-princess serial killer days?? Maybe it's his evil grandmother's (I don't know why, but I like the idea of an evil grandmother in this manga. I'm going to keep silently rooting for it.). Either way, he recognizes it. WHAT ARE YOU RUNNING AWAY FROM KAZAHAYA? Are you heir to a massive ring of psychic serial killers, second only to the Sakurazukamori in their blood-letting proficiency?? Moreover - HOW LONG CAN CLAMP DRAW OUT THE REVEAL? (I'm voting for quite a bit longer, actually, if it means more adorbs interactions between the boys. >.> But, uh, I am notoriously sleazy and a bit of a masochist, so...)

*SOBS*

Why is next month so far away....?
