  • Fri, 00:54: Whoa. So I was looking over my translation and just realized that Vianney is saying he can't pull off being a "gentleman" cause he's black.
  • Fri, 00:56: For context, he explains that one needs to be a "gentleman" to do close-up magic because it's performed in high class places.
  • Fri, 00:59: Of course he's explaining this to a child, so he just says "I'm too tanned"...
  • Fri, 01:01: But I'm guessing he means he can't do close-up magic because he won't be let into places like that? o_o; This takes place in the 80's btw.
  • Fri, 01:03: At first I thought he was just being self-depreciating about his looks, but he seems to be referring to his skin color more than anything...
  • Fri, 01:05: I thought it was cool that Ghost Hunt has a black character now, but now it's implied he's faced racism too.
  • Fri, 01:25: What's also interesting is that Vianney says Naru could pull off being a close-up magician, then immediately asks if he's Asian.
  • Fri, 01:26: I kinda assumed this was referring to looks at first too, but now...
  • Fri, 01:29: I don't think I've ever seen the fandom explore how the twins would have been treated in England because of their race before?
  • Fri, 01:30: We get tiny glimpses into that with these stories. Like how they were called "exotic" by a character in another story.
  • Fri, 01:41: Naru going off to visit a stranger alone without telling his parents anything still makes me cringe. XD;
  • Fri, 01:43: It's not even that he's being a bad child, he just seems to forget about telling them.
  • Fri, 01:45: But coupled with his sneaking out of school later on, makes me wonder if he had a habit of wandering off alone.
  • Fri, 01:47: With Gene covering for him of course, even if he doesn't know where his brother went off to. XD;
  • Fri, 01:49: Maybe their psychic link gave him a sense of security. Or maybe it's a habit from living with neglectful parents.
  • Fri, 02:04: So mom has recently gotten hooked on X Japan, and she just bought tickets for their concert in London in March...
  • Fri, 02:04: She bought me one too, because she doesn't want to go alone. XD
  • Fri, 02:05: I don't really care about the concert but...yay London!!!
  • Fri, 02:05: What's there to do in London in March though? I bet it's still really cold. Definitely want to visit the British Museum again...
  • Fri, 02:11: I visited the UK once when I was in high school, and it was one of the best trips in my life. However, that was also in summer.
  • Fri, 02:50: Apparently you can get to Cambridge from London by train in about an hour. Maybe...I'll visit there too... >_>;
  • Fri, 04:37: Wow, now I want a fantasy AU where Naru is a wizard, that would be too perfect.
