|I've got to know

I've been friended by more people in the last several weeks than I typically do in months. How did you find me? I'd love to know! I thought I was so low-profile, too...
I've lurked and watched your lj for at least a few years now, before deciding it would be easier to just friend you. As to where I first found you- I think it's from a yaoi review comm? I enjoy your summaries.
Ah, okay. I was wondering if something happened recently to cause people to find me, but I guess it was just coincidence. Glad you enjoy the summaries. I enjoy writing them. ^^
Hi. I'm another one of the lurkers of your lj. I found you you when I was searching for a summary of a manga. Then I kinda snoop around your lj & got all excited with all the summaries you have. Thank you very much for sharing I always enjoy reading your posts. *hugs*
You're very welcome! Glad you enjoy the summaries. XD;
If you don't mind, I'd like to friend you too! I've seen your comments on wednesday_10_00
's journal, and followed a link she gave to one of your summaries when I was combing through old manga/novel reviews (preparing a shopping list for upcoming Japan trip).
I'm just getting good enough to read novels for myself (Shitsuji no Tokken was my first) -- I can't think why I haven't friended your journal before now!
(My journal is 90% flocked so my students can't find it, mostly babble about learning Japanese and BL manga. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!)
Hi! I'm glad to meet more English-speaking people able to actually read BL novels! Shitsuji no tokken is SUCH an awesome start, too. Did you read the mini-story in the drama CD liner notes as well? it's so sweet!
Ooh, you're going to Japan too? It's so sad how jealous I am even though I just came back from my own trip there. ^^;
I know, I think I usually am most desperate to get back to Japan right after I've returned! (This will be my third trip.)
Shitsuji no Tokken is going to be an awfully hard act to follow, being both so utterly adorable and so easy to read. (I do have some good candidates lined up -- the City of Glass novels, for instance.) I'll be gradually reading through your older novel reviews, but if there are any novels you think are in the same class of adorability, I would welcome the heads up!wednesday_10_00
told me about the drama CD short story and offered to scan it, but I'm going to try to find the CD itself in Japan (I already have a small collection of drama CDs, so I don't mind collecting another). If I can't find it, I will certainly take her up on the scan offer. The thought of more Shinobu and Otoya out there fills me with glee.
Hm, same class of adorability as Shitsuji no tokken...That's a pretty tall order. I looked at some of my older summaries and came up with a couple that may compete somewhat: Kodomo no hitomi
(adorable father-and-son combo!), Kodomo ni naisho de
(adults being sweet and mature), and Himegimi no koshiire
(seme who can be mean yet also very doting, and an uke who is innocent and pure...).Edited at 2009-07-01 04:05 am (UTC)
