Yay! Yippee! Finally people seem to be reading (and enjoying, I might add) Dark Designs. (Check it out here and here.) You would not believe how all kinds of happy that makes me. Seriously, I have a weird love/hate relationship with Dark Designs. Content wise, I love it. I adore Takeshi. Hell, actually I love all the characters. That book is so very me. It's a crazy extrapolation of all the real life quirkiness I've encountered. The trouble is, it's saddled with THE most hideous cover in creation. I don't know what the art department were on that day, but seriously, they should avoid it in future. It's so utterly crappy, that just thinking about it still makes me cringe and my blood boil two years later. But hey, I've had the cover rant before.
You know what else I appreciate? That someone appreciates the inclusion of this little gem... "Omae wa ore no mono desu"... "Kore kara zutto... itsumademo." I spent hours agonizing over the inclusion of those lines. Should I have translated them? I decided not to, figuring the yaoi fans out there would probably understand, and everyone else could guess along with Silk as to what Takeshi had said to him. He meant it, whatever it was <very evil grin>.
Anyway, on to other stuff. Pure Folly remains just that. They had finally got around to kissing, inspired I might add by this pair found via Madam Butterflies blog, but are now having a rather tense debate. Jude doesn't get why Alastair has a problem with him marrying his cousin for self-preservation reasons! Alastair is trying not to feel heartbroken over the fact that he's already losing what he thought he just gained. Bet that makes no sense whatsoever.
On the subject of yon kissing pair in that clip. It's weird. You have to watch it with the sound for it to work it's magic! Sound off, it's just two guys kissing. Sound on, and it does seriously weird things to my insides. So, I figure I now need to work out how to incorporate more sounds into my writing. No easy task, I can tell ya.
Off to do some work before I tackle the Sunday ironing mountain.
I'm debating getting Kit out of the closet again!
