Treize glasses lol
Ahahahahahaha OH BOY. They put out a new serial novel for Gundam Wing, based some time after Endless Waltz. The translations I've found so far have been pretty terribad (understandably so - translating manga is one thing, translating prose must be fucking hard as hell for someone who isn't a professional) bur I am going to read the hell out of this shit because summaries said the magic words: "Treize Khushrenada's background". It's gonna be SO AWFUL and I will have to, like, pretend none of it exists. Y'know, for this fandom that I haven't cared about in like seven years or something. IT'S IMPORTANT TO ME THAT TREIZE AND ZECHS ARE NOT SO SECRET EX-BOYFRIENDS, OKAY?

...AND I WILL NEVER BELIEVE THAT MARIEMAIA IS ACTUALLY HIS DAUGHTER.

Because, you know, Zechs is OBVIOUSLY his ONE TRUE LOVE and a dude can't be bisexual or anything. Oh, younger self, you were so dumb. Although I do stand by the idea that Mariemaia isn't his daughter because a random, one-night stand with a nurse is absurdly out of character for him and the idea that he could have a daughter and not know about it seems ridiculous. He was literally the most powerful man on Earth and he didn't think to, ya know, check up on that lady he supposedly fell madly in love with while she was caring for him at the hospital? Yeah, I don't buy it. And we know Dekim lied to her about plenty of shit, why not lie about her parentage too? She didn't even LOOK like him. No forked eyebrows? Not his kid.

Forked eyebrows = obviously a dominant gene. Look at Dorothy and tell me that's not the case. I DARE YOU. (Search your heart, you know it to be true.)

I can't believe I just wrote all of that AND that I remembered Dekim's name without re-reading a summary of Endless Waltz. Oh god why. I could be using those braincells for social skills or something useful. Train time tables, for example.

Seriously though, someone on my friends list needs to care about this too so that we can both read and complain about how it's breaking everything.

When I worked at GameCrazy I busted out the ol' G-Wing DVDs and watched them during downtime. I think I got about halfway through the series before I took a break. I never realized until then how... boring the show was. I mean sure, it has it's interesting bits, but it's so goddamn slow. And the gay undertones for Troawa and Quatre are just so... painfully obvious.

I think what kept me watching was how cool all the mobile suits are. It's it's saving grace, really. I suppose I'm jaded though, because since then I've come to love the Universal Century so much more. 0079 is the best all around. It's so good. And I uh, hahaha, think I get more pleasure out of watching G-Gundam than Wing these days.

Though Endless Waltz is pretty sweet.

And as for Treize and Mariemaia:

Hahahaha it really is slow. I noticed looking at the cover art that Trowa and Quatre are definitely together. I wonder if they're canon? They freakin' should be.

I do like the UC stuff. 08th MS team was really good. Need to watch other UC stuff. Also G-Gundam is amazing.

They actually ARE canon. So there ya go.

08th MS team is amazing. All the UC stuff is fucking great, save for ZZ which I hear isn't that great (never saw it).

I NEED THIS IMMEDIATELY IN MY LIFE. GIVE ME A TRANSLATION BEFORE I HAVE TO HURT PEOPLE.

I freaking still love this show and I AM NOT SURE WHY, only there was a Lady Une at OHAYOCON and I FREAKED OUT.

Google Gundam Wing Frozen Teardrop and you should be able to find the animesuki.com forum thread that has all the links. :D
