So, [ profile] frozen_yoghurt told me that the current/next Studio Ghibli fim is going to be about the Chronicles of Earthsea. How cool is that? I wonder how they're going to adapt the books as they're a bit dark, but I have faith. The reason that I think it's taking so long to show up in the States has to do with Disney and their quest to find celebrity voice actors so they can flaunt the big name stars they're most definitely going to sign.

And in this Earthsea vein, I felt like reccing some Dark is Rising recs, because that series needs a movie adaption. Plus I'm avoiding my backlog of Hikago recs. *eeek*

On the [ profile] shinra_lackey front I'm done editing Title Match and High for [ profile] hikago_djs, but I just want to wait until the weekend to post them. I have a ton of work coming up, so my quest to finish Beside You 3 in Emperors by the 14th will be a stretch. Oh well.

If I'm lucky there's going to be two updates coming up. This one for The Dark is Rising and the next for Fullmetal Alchemist. That way all the anime enthusiasts can have something to look at.

So my pairing of choice for the The Dark is Rising is Will/Bran with the ocassional gen fic thown in there for good measure. DiR is a five book series written by the extremely talented Susan Cooper and comprises Under Sea, Over Stone, The Dark is Rising, The Greenwitch, The Grey King, and Silver on the Tree. I first read the series when I was in fifth grade, so they're light reading and you could plow through them in 2-3 days if you're feeling ambitious.

The main character, Will Stanton, is the last of the Old Ones, charged with five others to defeat the Dark from gaining power in the mortal world. Will, along with his mentor Merriam, the Drew children, and Bran Davies compromise the forces of the Light who are the only ones who can combat the Dark. The setting is modern day Europe and mixes in beuatifully Arthurian legend and folklore as well as Welsh myth.

And since I'm too lazy and not articulate enough, I'm going to point you all to [ profile] ninkasa's excellent Will/Bran essay, Wonderful Journey, written for [ profile] ship_manifesto.
