The Ice-Cold Demon's Tale, aka Koori/Kohri no Mamono no Monogatari is a manga by Shiho Sugiura. Music is for sampling purposes only, etc. And I highly encourage starting this series, as it's excellent. Favorite. [List of resources including a link to Amparo Bertram's excellent summaries by the intrepid [ profile] sara_tanaquil. Loss of nuance of course, but the summaries are better than the scanlations floating around out there. *cough*]

This mix covers Blood and Ishuca's first meeting. You know, in the cave, and Blood is trapped in a wall of ice and has human bones littering the ground like sugar skulls because he keeps killing people (with his hair!) to see if he can make them cry? And then Ishuca traipses in and ruins Blood's life as a badass demon forever? Yeah. Also, a manga in which friendliness is expressed by one main character (Ishuca) inviting his love interest (Blood) to a friendly bout of cannibalism on his person if Blood should get hungry. <3

Nostalgia: I went back to check out my own translations to the manga, and I was kind of shocked to see it was dated 2001. You know, when translations were the closest people could get to the manga a lot of times. Lean times. (Also, the translations are housed on a crappy Geocities website, pre-LJ fandom.) This was also my introduction to slash/yaoi/BL and I didn't even know it. I, uh. thought they were very good friends. Who kissed a lot. *bites lip* This has to somehow be a precurser for my being in bandom now.

Summary: To Grandmother’s house we go.
A/N: I discovered this snippet the other day. I probably had plans with it, but it works just as well as a little day-in-the-life of little Ishuca. The sugar, it kills.


Read the story )


In the spirit of completeness, I'm posting an old story so that I can tag it on LJ. (And forgetting that I wrote some other things. Artistic license at work: if I so will it, it never existed.)

Title: Roading: Only Just Beginning )

Series: Koori no Mamono Monogatari / Ice-Cold Demon's Tale
Summary: The road to Toei in a nutshell: heat, banter, owies, temple-worshippers, navel-gazing, partial redemption via etiquette, and a big mug of mystery tea. Also featuring Ferio, the psycho chicken.

(I will not apologize for quality, I will not apologize for quality!)

I can't believe I'm posting in this journal after so long away from feeling creative. School did a pretty intense brain drain on me this year and it's taken me this long to recover... And ahhhh! I can't believe it's been a year since I've translated more Koori or even thought of writing. But I've been going through old story files and reading the snippets and one--one! I'm really excited about! I'm not the most prolific of writers... (SNORT) but I have a really good feeling that I'll be able to work on this long term instead of losing faith in my abilities to continue. :knock on wood:

And I'll have to re-read Koori to get a sense of the timeline! Which will probably lead to translating! Especially since I have working non-stupid word processor(s!!) at my disposal! And this nifty note-taker, EverNote. ...All these exclamation marks help me to emote, all right?

I am giddy. Yayy! No more brain drain! I've just been sucking up fanfic for the past year, too dead-eyed and blank to do anything more, it feels like. But good fiction makes everyone happy. =)

I'm probably going to be needing to solicit people to hold my hand occasionally talk to about the fic writing process/Koori. o.0 It feels like I've been a hermit for the past year and all my fannish type people moved away. Strive!

So mostly in the spirit of, "Hey! Let's get this fucking done, shall we?!", cut below for a snippet. And yes, it is my crackbaby fic. :cuddles it:

the cut )
I figure, I will never finish this story at the rate I'm going. So why not post what I have and move on? (Move on to the next part, that is.) So I'll be posting as I finish, I suppose...

Part 1 )

You know what I really, really, really want?

More icons. Lots and lots more icons.

And some writing talent, SWOOPING writing talent. Not bashing.
