marry me, your father will disown you
I've been rewatching a few episodes, kind of out of order and what not, depending on who I want to see and what sort of tone I'm in the mood for or what particular instance I'm trying to remember and all that.

And you know what? Guy is the luckiest bastard ever.



Dude, you pulled your sword on the king and NOTHING HAPPENED. You got away with it. How did you do that? You are super lucky that the princess is hot for you your friend.

You know, I'm pretty much on Guy's side here, though. (Surprised?) I mean, this was not the smartest thing he's ever done, but seriously, the king sends your Kimlascan mother to marry a Malkuth nobleman as a gesture of peace, and then the king's brother-in-law KILLS HER? What the hell is that?



What else did I watch.... I think I started with 15 then back to 14, then 1, 5, 24, 17, 6 and 7. I need to watch 8 and 9 next, I think.

And in the first episode, I really like the little scene with Luke, Guy, and Natalia. Sure, it's exposition ahoy, but it sets the kind of friendship they have, and makes me want to write some good precanon stuff like that. And Guy needs to be a smartass more often. His "Oh, really? Good luck with that!" cracks me up every time.

Imagine the conversation when Guy tries to ask daddy in law for Natalia's hand.

Yeah, I had a passage about that in WWYS that I ended up cutting, but it went something like:

Guy: I don't need to give your father any more reasons to hate me.
Nat: He doesn't hate you.
Guy: Yeah, apparently you've forgotten the time I threatened him with my sword.
Nat: And apparently you've forgotten the time he wanted Luke and I to poison ourselves. We've all suffered bad judgment.

I think Nat should pretty much get her way for life.

Touché.

Which reminds me, I wanted to write fic in which Touya's fiancée (one of the four... yes, there should be four popular candidates) has to meet Fujitaka. Then I thought, "It'd be so cordial people would be bored to death."

UNLESS, Sonomi is married to Fujitaka by then and she gets a say; none but the best for Nadesico's firstborn.

"It'd be so cordial people would be bored to death."

With Kaho or Tomoyo, absolutely. With Nakuru or Meiling? That I'd like to see. (Or do I have the wrong four? That's my four.)

He wouldn't know much about Nakuru; Meiling is one of Sakura's friends, so...

I just think Sonomi interviewing the four (you got them right) would be far more interesting. Particularly if she decides Fujitaka is too soft and not up to the delicate task of interviewing women.

They'd give as good as they'd get, though. Meiling in particular is very young Sonomi-esque, I think. Some good clashing of strong-willed vs strong-willed.

Aw, but it makes me kind of sad that it wouldn't be both S/F and T/T, because it almost seems like it should be that way, like a package deal. My favorite incestuous little family.

Sonomi interviewing Tomoyo in the context of existant S/F? Now that would be drama.
mellowcandle From: mellowcandle Date: August 13th, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm very definitely not Tomoyo, because I'd be sitting there with a vein popping out of my forehead going, "Really, Mother? You've known me my whole life. Really?? Really???"

In addition to that, more reasons why it'd be awesome.

1. Whereas Fujitaka is all lassiez faire, Sonomi, in the dark about T/T, would be all like:

S: Here, Touya, take a look at this.
T: ...?
S: What do you think?
T: She looks pretty, I guess.
S: Good, her name is Miwako, a promising prospect in my marketing division. I believe she went to your university a few years after you.
T: Um, Mom...
S: Wouldn't you like to meet her?


2. F: "When did this start?"
T: "A long time before you and Aunt Sonomi started."
F: "How do you plan on telling her?"
T: "I was hoping you could test the waters first."
F: "Uh-uh, I've been on her death-list once, I'm not going to..."
T: "She's just going to end up blaming you for everything anyways. One more count won't make a difference."
F: "..."


3. Tomoyo: "Why can't I marry the one I want just because you did the same thing?"
