I think I just peed myself laughing.
I am now convinced he is truly a reincarnated wuxia hero. Amongst his biggest regrets is that he did not get to carry Marie's body through a field of flowers or send it on a burning raft down the river.
Oh my God, I needed that. So funny.
Any progress on the visa front?
Still waiting for visa. Though I have managed to get money to have my stuff shipped to storage so it will be up there when I eventually get it.
*dies* Seriously, best thing I've seen on LJ in AGES.
I am glad you liked. It more or less wrote itself once I got the suggestion...
ok, knowing what every single pic is from and whats going on in most makes this post LETHAL, and very much NSFW...too much shaking from suppressed laughter. BTW, the first 2 wuxia couples? Heroine and assassin...
You left out the part where Bourne, the assassin, no longer kills unless he has no choice because Marie wouldn't want it. Instead he leaves them alive to come after him again, unless his charity reforms them(also very wuxia)
Ooh. So were the first couple evil? They looked a bit shifty.
There may be a need for a second post once I find pictures of the necrokiss from Bourne.
Bourne's manpain is so very lovely. As is the manpain of pretty much every wuxia hero I have seen images of.
Bourne brings quality manpain to the screen. I admire it like I would a priceless Ming vase.
The manpain is strong in Bourne. And wuxia. I find myself enthralled whenever I look at it.
This is brilliant. BRILLIANT, I say.
Bourne's manpain pretty much is the best thing ever. It writes its own posts it is so good.

But this cannot be!
For Romance was invented in the Middle Ages in France, and does not exist outside the Western Chivalric Tradition! So I have often been told by people with more letters after their names, and more expensive letters, than I have!
They may have invented romance but the Middle Ages apparently were mere copyists in the world of manpain. Their manpain is paltry compared to the agonies the average wuxia hero must endure on a regular basis.
I read it and laughed.
And then I had to read it again.
So excellent. Can we have more posts and pictures about manpain??
I am newly awakened to the pictoral glories of manpain. I feel sure that there will be more
spam about deeply thought out picspams of manpain in the future.

ooh, ooh, don't forget- there are Evil Monks
in The Gemini Contenders - they protect a Sekrit Scroll that they must kill anyone who discovers, and kill themselves to protect the secret, too, because all monks everywhere have mad martial arts skillz, even if they're Greek Orthodox from an island monastery and so you'd expect them to have maybe mad fishing skillz or bouzouki-fu instead.

Re: ooh, ooh, don't forget- there are Evil Monks
It is a well known fact that fishing and playing the bouzouki are very good for developing the muscles needed for martial art skillz.
Tis just might be the best post ever made.
9 out of 10 wuxia heroes agree. The other one expired of manpain before he was able to render his opinion.
Sometimes I feel like there is so much lovely manpain but so little time.
But have you seen Calixa's death by flying carpet post? So good.
I feel an almost religious compunction to share the attractive manpain.
Perhaps you suffered so much manpain in a previous life that you are now free of it? Failing that, you could get yourself some by hieing out to woods, finding a marvelously attractive princess to train you in martial arts, get attacked by evil monks, get poisoned, and then have the gods insist that your true love can never see you again. It works in wuxia.
Oh gosh, this is so fabulous! Beyond any words! And wheeeeee! Some Russian writing! Berlin-Moscow!
Bourne, I feel, is probably especially fond of Russian trains. He probably likes to hang around in country railway stations in the depth of winter(always refusing to use the waiting room) and let the cold creep over him as a way to increase his angst.
