Has anyone read the web-doujinshi "Niji"? The one where Kyon and Koizumi have a boxing match in front of the entire school with the prize being (IIRC) a kiss from Haruhi? I want to fangirl about this with someone... anyone... *crickets chirp* ._.

Event-planning wise, this probably wasn't the most awesome sauce wedding out there, but it made for a satisfying conclusion to a series I'd been following for a while and it was the first wedding scene I thought of when I saw the question, so yeah.

day.12 - Who had the best wedding?

William Jones/Emma Stowner [Victorian Romance Emma]

The part where Emma gets all confused about what last name to put in the register, and William goes "use Stowner, she wouldn't mind" was a nice throwback to how they were introduced in the first place.  Plus, you know, love overcoming class differences and all that jazz.

Why yes, I did buy all ten Japanese volumes as they were released, thank you.

The rest of the days:
# Day 13 - What is your favorite television pairing?
# Day 14 - What is your favorite book pairing?
# Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?
# Day 16 - What is the absolute worst pairing?
# Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?
# Day 18 - What is the cutest pairing?
# Day 19 - A pairing you've rooted for since the beginning?
# Day 20 - The "can't stand the sexual tension anymore" pairing?
# Day 21 - A pairing you like and no one else understands why?
# Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?
# Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great?
# Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?
# Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?
# Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?
# Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?
# Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?
# Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?
# Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!

ttp://fujimaki.air-nifty.com/photos/rainbow/index.html if you're inclined to read it. It's unfinished (89 pages and counting!) but it's interesting.

Oh, I should warn that while that particular comic is work-safe, most of the other stuff on the artist's site is definitely NSFW.

... Well, I first read Emma on IIRC when it started serializing, and then I bought all the mandarin Chinese volumes as they came out. Why? Because they're 60% cheaper.

BUT, I stopped buying them at 7, because I got so, so, so, so pissed at William for proposing and then breaking the proposal with Eleanor. And then after the anger waned after about a year, I evaluated the story and thought, "Hmm, kind of predictable?" Plus way, way, way too little Hans. So I didn't finish buying the series. BUT, then the Bangaihen tankoubons started coming out, I sneaked a peek and they were 10X more interesting than the main body of plot, plus there was Hans and Adele and much Germans and lovable side characters, so I had to buy those.

I bought both volumes of Otoyomegatari days after their release, at full Kinokuniya California ripoff sales tax prices.

If I could read Mandarin, I'd probably buy those instead.

I agree it was a dick move on William's part to break off the proposal to Eleanor, but he did propose to Eleanor while thinking that he would never see Emma again. The Jones family also fell from society's good graces because of his move so I wouldn't say he didn't come out of it unscathed. At least Bangaihen sort of addressed that with Eleanor's chapters...?

I ship William/Emma pretty fiercely but I understand why a lot of people were pissed off about the non-ending of the regular series. If the Bangaihen chapters didn't exist then I probably wouldn't have liked Emma as much as I do now, tbh.

Yeah, the family falls from grace, but only William gets to marry Emma. Yeah...

Have you been reading Otoyomegatari?

I'm probably assuming too much here, but Grace was still able to marry the man she wanted to and Arthur is still able to pursue his dream of becoming a lawyer? William's mom also mentioned moving back into the main house too. Not sure about Vivi and Colin though ._.

No! It's on my to-buy list but Book-off never has it in stock when I visit! I keep telling myself I'll download the raws and read it too >______
