Anyways, I should post this before I leave the KHR fandom for good. That and...I will finish that monumental list of things to do, and then I will be over with it for the most part. I was never good with finishing projects where fandoms go downhill, and this is one where I find myself being a bit bitter about.

Anyways...here is the first half of the project i wanted to finish. The second half will come this weekend on Sunday, straight in the afternoon.


Heavenly - a TsuHaru FSTCollapse )

Heavenly - a 2786 FST LinksCollapse )


That's right. Ten Years Earlier, present time Tsuna and Haru. Not much I can do about the later half yet, since I STILL need to perfect and draw out and scan the pictures for that one and paint them and all, but...oh, well.

Here is the first half. Expect them to come in a package together on Sunday at 3:00 to 4:00 PM Pacific Time.

Oh, and...if anyone can't see this so well, go to my dreamwidth account on redfullmoon. It has the entry.

Title: The Truths of Being Alive

Chapter Title: 3. A Game Fit For Kings

Author: Primal Red

Character(s)/Pairing: Kamichika Rio. Orihara Izaya. Ryuugamine Mikado. Sonohara Anri. Heiwajima Shizuo. Celty Sturluson. Eventual Izaya/Rio (IzaRio)

Genre: General/Angst/Drama/Romance

Rating: R/M for psychological and philosophical themes and eventually quite a bit of sexuality. Not for the faint of heart.

Warnings: Manipulation, plotting, blackmail for now. Later on, though…there will be worse.

Now, I know that 9/11 is not a funny thing to speak of, but neither is the situation with the people of the Middle East. Keep in mind, people have their own right to their own religious beliefs, and if someone else has a different ideal than yours, it's nothing to be all up-in-arms about it. In other words, put down those stupid guns for now! >( We aren't doing anything good if we keep weapons with us 24/7.

The thing is, every religious ideal has its flaws, just as every political, social, and so-forth ideal has flaws. Of course, unless you believe in some...worshipping-psychopath-and-serial-killers-and-live-cannibalism-and-genocidal kind of religion, I have no problem with you. Seriously. The only people I am up in arms against are serial killer groupies and people who believe that rapists and horrible perpetrators should have more rights than their victims. And psychopaths and genocidal imbeciles themselves. Yep.

Angry rant on how bashing Muslims in general is stupid and completely hypocritical.Collapse )

What does that say about us, anyways?

[KHR Fanfic] An Unusual Request

Title: An Unusual Request
Chapter Title: What Remains of the Past Still Haunts Us
Author: Primal Red
Character(s)/Pairing: Sawada Tsunayoshi. Miura Haru. Timoteo (Ninth Vongola boss). Gradual and eventual TsuHaru.
Genre: General/Drama/Romance
Rating: T/PG-13 for some blood, and dark themes.
Warnings: For now, elements of bullying and psychological themes in the background. Also, a little injury.
Summary: [Alternate Universe where Tsuna moves to Italy when he’s 14 and Haru never meets Tsuna] Haru needs to be married by the age of 22. Desperate, she asks for help from the Vongola mafia family’s Ninth boss to find a good husband. In return for the favor, she must help the Tenth Vongola mafia boss-to-be, Sawada Tsunayoshi, improve his poor academic record.
A/N: This chapter might go into what I think might have transpired with Haru’s early years. Not always pretty and nice. Also… Chapter 5 and 6 are coming up. After my finals next week, I will continue writing, that is…But, I can’t guarantee more than 1 chapter at a time for each series. ^^; Damn me.
Chapter 4: What Remains of the Past Still Haunts Us



Title: The Truths of Being Alive

Chapter Title: 2. Shattered Reality

Author: Primal Red

Character(s)/Pairing: Kamichika Rio. Orihara Izaya. Ryuugamine Mikado. Sonohara Anri. Eventual Izaya/Rio (IzaRio)

Genre: General/Angst/Drama/Romance

Rating: R for psychological and philosophical themes and eventually quite a bit of sexuality.

Warnings: Dark themes and disturbing perspectives on humanity in general.

A/N: Dedicated, again, especially to the two who have inspired me infinitely on this work, Renn-kun and eclats_de_voix. ;) Keep the Izaya/Rio flame going! This pairing is so dark that it's riveting and fascinating. And, Izaya! You are so damn difficult to write! Oh, well, I forgive thee. XD



Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

MYTH 1: "Arabs use their right hand instead of toilet paper"

NO. If anyone even bothers to look around in the world, they would soon find that people from the Middle East and the Southeastern places of Asia as well as the Southwest do NOT use their hands only to clean their um...area. Guess what? They use water to clean themselves. They have ways of their own that are just as clean as people from the USA and the rest of the Western World. What's more, the reason why they don't use toilet paper has more to do with the cost of it and the fact that they are more conserving on resources than we Americans. If anything, that's way better than what some of us do: We use paper rather profusely, and we often waste it.

Seriously, if anyone even tells me anymore about people from the Middle East being "dirty and hypocrites and all that", I will wack someone.

MYTH 2: "The Chinese are all born with a disease called Eastern Asian Yellow Skin sickness."

Truth: ...if anyone hasn't noticed, ALL Asians have a slight tint of yellow in their skin. Also, keep in mind: The reason why the skin of so many Chinese individuals during the Sino-Japanese war had so many problems had to do with the Health Issues of the time of the Chinese populus. The Japanese, for one, had very little Health issues mainly due to their system leaders, who actually bothered to make sure their people were well-fed and cared for. The Nationalists of that time, on the other hand, didn't give a crap about allowing ANY health care available to the rest of the people, and purposely made it so expensive that they would take taxes from them 60 years in advance (and this was proven just recently). What's worse is that they would use people of all ages from their own country to experiment as torture victims and dead biopsies (even if they weren't Communist party members, they didn't care). Thankfully (and this is one of the few things I actually am thankful to the Chinese Communist Party for, even if I DON'T like them), the Communist Party of China forbade that kind of behavior the Nationalists proposed and made Health care available to everyone, and because of that the people are no longer having so many health issues ravage the population as they used to.

MYTH 3: The populus of European Americans have a lot of racists and white supremacists.

Truth: Every kind of ethnicity has racists! I, for one, know a lot of people who have seen racists from other ethnicities (including people from my own ethnicity, yep, as well as people from many other Asian ethnicities as well). It's not just a matter of colonialism from the past or anything like that. Racism is prevalent everywhere in the world, and we all need to work together with every other ethnic group and religious society and so forth to destroy that racism. The thing is, every society is ambivalent about differences in one way or another, unless they find the means to communicate with the other society well. The problem is, we the people need to learn how to not just "tolerate" differences, but celebrate the fact that we have differences and those differences themselves. Tis a good way to stop war and find the means to talk more clearly with one another.

It's a difficult goal, but it is worth the while.

MYTH 4: Chinese people are manipulative.

Truth: ...er, in case you didn't notice, any society that is considered "Old World" and has a lot of complex relationships in regards to human individuals tends to have some manipulative people. The thing is, some of this is actually accepted in those societies, and there are times when manipulation can be a useful skill (mainly in defending yourself from being tricked or conned or something). Nevertheless, it also is an ethical issue: to what degree may we use these skills? It can be a good thing to use to defend oneself and one's friends, but it also might be something that could lead to a lot of misunderstanding and a lot of problems for others one encounters who don't understand. The thing is, people need to realize that these sort of differences are sometimes for good and sometimes for ill, because there are some capabilities that some ethnic groups in general have in greater numbers than in other ethnic groups, and what makes this interesting is that we all can learn from each other for this. None of these skills are linked to genetics alone, and that is why we all can adapt and change and become better people. Truly celebrating diversity is the key to making sure that people in all different backgrounds learn from each other at the maximum rate and understand each other and each other's backgrounds well.

If there is one thing I hate about myself more than anything else, it's not being able to follow up on anything I want to do for my friends in time. Unfortunately, this came in late, and I want to just make a friend happy with it, even though my inspiration has been down for...5 months or so? I don't know...drawing is something that takes a lot of time for me to work with, since it never feels as constant as my writing in ways. Darn me for not finding a way to keep my muse in check.

Anyways, here it is for nidai/valerya_deidara. Below this line.

Do you think women are treated as equals? What changes would you like to see?
Depends. If you're talking about women getting to be closer to the goal of being equal to men, then...at least, from the perspective of ancient history, perhaps. Maybe. If you're talking about Feminism reaching it's goal completely nowadays, I disagree.

Feminism and Masculinism together. The idea of men and women being equal. In fact, I thin BOTH women and men today are losing sight of what truly should be for equality and so forth.

Surprised? Look at today's culture. Seriously, you call THAT feminism? Do you call Michelle Bachmann's and Sarah Palin's extremist Social Darwinist ideals of going back to the Stone Age patriarchal ideals "feminism"? Actually, I find Bachmann slightly more respectable: at least she works to gain power to an extent with her charisma, but...I disagree so hard with her ideology on feminist ideals that I can't even begin to talk about them without screaming at the world for letting her talk that ways about "women's place in the world."

I call that an attempt to send us all back to the Dark Ages...or even the Stone Age.


Feminism does NOT mean: Dystopian themes of rampant sexuality that degrades men and women together down to the lowest basity of human darkness. NOR does it mean patriarchal ideals that go back to the Ancient World. Feminism also does NOT mean child prostitution and stupidity and consumerist Jungle ideals of women being objects worshipped as "sexy, hot and beautiful". Feminism does NOT mean blaming men for all their problems, either.

There ARE, after all, women who support patriarchy because they benefit from being lazy and being worshipped for forcing other girls into prostitution. That includes the Camorriste and the human traffickers of the world.

You know what I call a feminist?

The First Wave Feminists were all real feminists.

Simone de Beauvoir was a real feminist.

Betty Friedan is a real feminist.

Betty Ford was a real feminist.

Eleanor Roosevelt is a real feminist.

All the First Wave and Second Wavers were (and still are) real feminists.

The women that would fight through Fire and Ice and fight dragons and the worst kind of monsters to gain rights for all the women in the world are real feminists.



Read more...Collapse )



Do you know what this means? Women need to be just as active in changing the world TOGETHER WITH THE MEN.

The problem is, the world never changes easily. Just look at the First and Second Wave Feminists: The First and Second Wave Feminists ALWAYS marched on the street, all the while taking care of their children, families and so forth. They all knew that they would be arrested, captured, convicted and sent to jail, and even gang-raped and killed or even mass murdered and tortured and sliced apart. And yet...they still went.

They went so they could make all the women in the world as free as the men. Even though they knew many of them could be shot to death, beaten to death, mocked, jeered, psychologically tortured, etc...

If you ARE a Feminist, say out loud that you can fulfill those standards as they did. Do it and prove that you are one of us. Otherwise, I will not take you seriously. I will probably hope that someone will take you out of your misery by ignoring you for eternity.

Edit: I admit, what I said earlier did have some issues (so I changed some of them), mainly because I was frustrated with the popular culture surrounding the Miley Cyrus phenomenon. Though...I shouldn't blame Miss Cyrus for things like that herself, since she doesn't know much about what she's really doing and is just a scared little girl.

I will also admit, I don't look down on all forms of prostitution, but I DO hate forced prostitution and child prostitution made into a business via human trafficking. There are at least tens of thousands of little girls being sold from Yunnan, China into the Golden Triangle (thanks to my understanding of what happens over there) to become prostitutes or child brides or wives of people who buy people as trophies. Not to mention being sold to Japan, South Africa, the USA, etc. forcibly.

The problem with making prostitution legal in all places in the world is the fact that not every place in the world is a first-world area like the USA or Western Europe. Unlike what certain people think, any form of legalized prostitution in China will inevitably end up with lots of 9-year-olds being sold to raise a family of boys (because farmers in that area don't care about their daughters and would prefer boys instead, since they see girls as maggots in their rice >.<), since there is so much damn corruption in that government, so I don't trust their society to ensure that the women who are selling their bodies are all 18 and older. Chances are, they might even turn a blind eye even if the female is 5. The problem is that patriarchal societies like China's makes prostitution a bad practice, since it commercializes it to force people to get into it even when they don't want to. That's the way it is. The rampant human trafficking over there is a result of the society being that ways.

As for the people who don't mind going into that industry, I don't really mind what they do, as long as they stay healthy and have a support system of health insurance and all that, since such an industry isn't something that one can easily be alright without testing and health evaluations. And as long as they don't support human trafficking.

Writer's Block: Love to hate

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

My favorite antagonist, you mean? Well...I have several canon ones:

1. Hazama from BlazBlu. The guy...er...entity, pretty much laughs in the face of any sense of decency, and this makes him quite the outstanding antagonist. What's more, he somehow has that capacity to say things that are actually right and to the point, even when we are hoping that someone would kill him and his existence for all eternity. XD Sorry to say, he's right. :3

2. Joker from The Dark Knight. Psychos tend to make me fearful, alright. :) Especially with the part "Why so serious?" ;)

3. Rebecca. From the classic novel. ;) A cute, absolutely adorable-looking girl with the most innocent, sweetest perfect demeanor and all-knowing, all-perfect exterior and confidence and idolatry with the most black-hearted, callous and psychopathic personality is definitely a girl to be hated. ;)
