Website Updates: I've about got the Fanfic Archive update ready, and I'm hoping to get in an update on my own site soon. I've been revamping parts of my "What's a SWAT Kat?" section since some of it dated back to my first website... including the art. Yikes. The bad! It burns! Oh, and I'm also hoping to get up a new image now that it's time for the summer theme to go.

Fanfiction Review:
Mad World and The Black Plague
Author: Tigerkat
Series: SWAT Kats
Rating: K+/PG for some profanity and violence.
Summaries: [1] An old villain is loose and planning his most devious plot ever. How will the SWAT Kats stop him when another kat is living under their roof? [2] Tai begins his training to be a SWAT Kat and isn't doing well. Meanwhile, the evil Dr. Viper has infected the city's water supply with a horrible virus.

The first two entries in a series, these stories are probably two of the best "third SWAT Kat" stories I've read in years, and I just wanted to comment on them. The author's character, Tai, is really nicely handled. He's a likeable character with no outrageous abilites. (There are hints that he may develop some form of powers in the future, but these at least have been well-grounded in his background, logically explained and are developing slowly. In fact, he shows no extraordinary powers at all in the second story, "Black Plague".) He has a solid, believable background and a tendency to doubt himself that remains lightly handled without ever plunging into the depths of melodramatic angst. And, perhaps most refreshing of all, he actually has to train to be a SWAT Kat. And, as the icing on the cake, the canon characters are all in-character, and the stories feature fully-developed, original villain plots.

This Week's Inuyasha: Chapter 478 is out! And... [livejournal.com profile] mbimomma, I'm starting to think she really might break Tessaiga, possibly for keeps this time. It seems pretty clear certain other characters won't make it through this battle as well, but... I'm getting worried. Since Inuyasha now seems to be fully in control of his youkai blood, it could be reasoned that he doesn't need the Tessaiga anymore. His control is awesome, but... but... *cries* Tessaiga! Don't listen to the fandom, Takahashi! I know I'm like one of the poor sword's only three fans, but still!

I sure hope not. I mean, it might be turned around to say that all the upgrades were just for Inuyasha to learn, which isn't a bad thing, but... *cries* I like Tessaiga. Of course, I'm also among the three (well, here's hoping there's at least one more out there) fans, and I know I'm biased.

But, yeah, I trust Takahashi will pull something good out of it either way.
