But first things first, a quiz!
Yay! I'm a French socialite! ........er...socialist, I mean socialist...
What? You're telling me you haven't read Babochka yet? Why ever not?
Shall we move on to the bulk of this post? Come with me now on a journey through time and space, but mainly just time. I shall now post about what I was going to post about nigh on two weeks ago when I was aghast to find that I could no longer find my site therefore having to hold in what I was going to post about until I had a place to post it, which is here, which is what I shall now post (what I was going to post before that is). I don't really know why I managed to hold it in and not forget it until now, but be careful folks when holding things in for large amounts of time (like say two weeks) because you might end up with a urinary tract infection, not that I have a urinary tract infection or have ever had one, but it could happen, and it could happen to you. So you must be careful not to hold things up inside for too long but let things go sometimes and let them be free, for your health. But don't let them loose for too long or they might fly away towards the bright lights in the distance and you might never see them again, but at least you won't have a urinary tract infection.
I have completely lost my train of thought.
Ah! What I wanted to say way back when, was that I had been looking around at some Franz Ferdinand photos and I saw this picture. I had seen the image before, even further back in time but had not considered it any further since then. But all of a sudden it struck me that there was a striking resemblance to this picture (from here). What's going on!? Are CLAMP designing Franz Ferdinand's clothes? Are Franz CLAMP in disguise? Is CLAMP Franz Ferdinand in disguise??? The mind boggles. Or is it because it's really not that rare to have the combination of black suit, orange shirt and this is just a coincidence that I have happened upon. Although one must keep in mind that there are no coincidences in this world!
And from this point my train of thought descended into the realms of, 'if the characters of Tsubasa were in a band, what would it be like?' (like a bad AU fic? hmmmm....) Anyway, I spent far too much time pondering this at work, and I came up with the following:
Fai: Could be the frontman, he's got what it takes, just look at his hair. What I mean is that he's probably not too bad at singing (because it's a lot like saying magical chants or something) and he's got the charisma for it. But I think that Fai would chose to stay out of the limelight, he would be the roadie that packs up all the stuff and cheers the band on from the sidelines.
Sakura: Would then take the lead singer role. I'm not really sure how good she is at singing (Tomoyo was always the one that sang after all), but I'm sure she couldn't be too bad. And in Tsubasa especially, she's got this kind of inexplicable charm and good luck which means that the public would adore her.
Syaoran: Would play lead guitar. He'd actually be quite good at it, but he'd be very quiet and humble about the whole thing and let Sakura take centre stage.
Kurogane: Would play base. He would loom in the back, scowling. He wouldn't admit it, but he'd probably quite enjoy it.
And Mokona: Would play the drums! And this is the only reason I wanted to post this here because it fits so well. I can really see Mokona playing the drums and being really enthusiastic. It just makes perfect sense in my mind and makes me laugh. And at the end of each set he would throw his drumsticks in the air only to have them accidentally land on Kurogane, every time.
And now I need to stop putting characters in a band and sounding like I'm sixteen or something *shuts up*
