[ red_a02 ] Shuzhen – The first episode was a lot of fun, cos it had an interesting cocktail of sexual tension and smooth fight choreography. This episode is like the awkward aftermath...

[ vermilion_2 ] YAPX – I understand that most of your stories are dialogue-based and heavy on retorts and counter-retorts. This one felt unnecessarily circular. It starts with a cool premise: a killer/villain/vigilante uses Lent to swear off something that should be second nature to him (I suppose), and then talks about a story. The link between the two (giving up killing & the story) isn’t a 100% fit. Maybe instead of “let me tell you a story”, it could be “hey, you see I even passed a guy up for death today!” or equivalent. Something to drag Lorelei into the banter and the premise. // That’s my only complaint. I’m not a big fan of dialogue-based stories, but I can make a exception for this.

[ 130204 ] YAPX – Good pace, good characters, great dialogue. The thing I like best is a combination of the three: how you build up their pseudo-relationship through all that back-and-forth exchange. Somehow, you craft a unique, strange relationship: from any one point in the story, both of them are manipulative, victimised and hypocrites - though not all at once. // On word choices, I felt you could change the word “janitor” (“cleaner” or “uncle” would’ve given a different, but more acute local flavour to it). Mostly because, it’s connotes an added level of difference through: class. Whether or not you intended it, by portraying the “janitor” and “student” you bring out the fact that he’s stuck there socially in all sense of the word. It made the part where he says he reads books during weekends completely out-of-context and weird. // Also, there’s too much “sliding” in and out of the room. Not sure if that’s intentional repetition, or just a lack of other words. // I thought that the girl’s own background is pretty compelling. Even after everything, I can’t tell if she’s speaking the truth. Because I’m all for unreliable narrators and characters, I can still find her well-thought out. But other readers might lose patience or wonder at her sudden change of heart at the final moment.

As we are all surprised and inspired by Susan Boyle, let us not forget that for every Susan Boyle, there are many more, a countless many, who are unable to have their dreams fulfilled. Minister of Man Power Gan Kim Yon shares with us his tragic tale.

(Gan Kim Yong) urged them to “take up any job that is available”, as there would always be “opportunities to upgrade later on”.
For instance, Mr Gan revealed his “dream job” had been to teach, but the closest he got to it was as Minister of State for Education.
The Singapore Government has allowed many to pursue their dream jobs.

The Five of Diamonds will let you down.

In Singapore, being a teacher is difficult. It takes awesome qualifications to teach.
Mr Gan Kim Yon, then Minister of State for Education, Poses with a Teacher and his Students
(Artist’s Impression, note happy face)
Many would-be teachers find themselves unqualified, and have to settle for blue collar jobs in the civil service, earning eight month bonuses (during a recession, lah. Of course, during good years, it’s a lot more. Even blue collar workers have to live!). Yet, they have to bear the burden, daily, of the soul-crushing dissatisfaction of being unable to touch young children.
Mr Gan, we feel your pain! We, too, have dreams!
Become a teacher, Mr Gan!
The opportunity to upgrade is NOW.
Young children want to be touched by you! Young children want to feel your Man Power!
Young children want to kena Gan!
TOUCH YOUNG CHILDREN WITH YOUR MAN POWER, MR GAN!
Mr Gan Kim Yon has a Dream

In the picture above, for Uncanny X-Men #513, there is Cloak and Dagger! I didn’t believe it when I saw the thumbnail, but when I looked at the pic, there they were!
I used to love Cloak and Dagger when I was a kid, before I even knew that “Cloak and Dagger” actually meant something more than a cape and a small knife.
I thought Marvel had retired them forever. Their story is pretty tragic, tormented by the powers thrust upon them, forced to be outcasts from society, etc. In the last issue I read, they found out that they were supposed to get each others’ powers, and life would have been so much better, etc. It was all pretty dramatic. Since it was the last issue, I seem to remember both of them died.
