I have to say, i think this fic is pure genius. I’ve never particularly cared for the Wizard of Oz, but as a framework for analyzing the relationship between bishies and angst in CLAMP manga it works /so/, so well. I love how you flipped the color of Oz and monotone of Kansas with the manga coloring here.
Grand Sociopath of the West is the perfect title for Seishiro. He’s clearly an analogue of the Wicked Witch of the West, but i’m getting some shades of the Good Witch of the North here as well. Plot Device Sociopath of the East describes Fuuma’s role in X pretty well, but i feel he’s less of a sociopath or a plot device in TRC. Come to think of it, how /did/ Fuuma manage to keep from losing an eye, anyway?
In Doumeki’s defense, i think a large part of the reason he never did anything with the egg because he was never exactly sure what the purpose of the egg was. Just that he’d need it at some point.
Poor Fay getting traumatized by reading Tokyo Babylon and X! Now you know how we feel, Fay. Or you will when you start actively seeking out heartbreaking series to read like i do. Too bad i never cried at any CLAMP works, or i could have woken Subaru up.
I feel bad for Fay in this fic. You present plenty of evidence that he’s going to suffer enormously before long, and yet he has no clue what he’s in for. Then again, not everyone who seems cheerful and carefree has an angsty backstory. Just look at CLAMP School – they have to deal with Kamui’s angst, but have none of their own. Cardcaptor Sakura’s angst isn’t that bad either.
That said, i enjoyed all mention of Kurogane. That, and the dig at the people who insist he and Fay aren’t a thing.
And i haven’t even said all that much about the jokes yet! I love them; the comment about ballsovaries, angst is water-soluble, all the best love stories involve amputation. I’d forgotten that line from xxxHOLiC, but i agree wholeheartedly. And, of course, Kamui’s balls. I don’t even want to know why there are three of them.
But the big draw is all the angst. All the wonderful angst CLAMP requires.

Just too precious. Lovely fic... and the utter truth is what makes it so delightful.

OMG you are a genius.
"Let me spell it out for you then, since you insist upon being so deliberately obtuse. You've received a brain capable of knowing far more of the plot than anyone else you're traveling with could or should know, a heart madly in love with someone you can't be in love with, and extra balls to ensure you can stab your comrades with relative ease – though, sadly, you're still one short of actually being able to do anything about Ashura."
You're freaking brilliant O_O! and the 'my balls' -I didn't laught like a madwoman for ages! you're awsome!

This may be the single funniest thing I have ever read.
| Azamiko chapter 1 . 4/27/2011
*cracks up* This is exactly why I TRY not to read CLAMP manga. _
| Mikkeneko chapter 1 . 12/18/2010
Strangely enough, despite everything else you've written, I have to say this may still be my favorite fic of yours. :D
| oswin-the-girl-who-can chapter 1 . 8/10/2010
That was pure brilliance! Great fic, I love the way you so seamlessly worked these characters into a Wizard of Oz parody that's not utterly stupid and obvious. Great work, laughed all the way through!

this is epic
| Kuroda Chiaki chapter 1 . 8/9/2010
Freaking hilarious! Too bad I actually haven't read X-1999..
| Iscy chapter 1 . 8/8/2010
This was...well, to put it bluntly, this was just plain awesome-sauce. And I never use the term 'awesome-sauce'.
| notmycentury chapter 1 . 8/8/2010
This is just simply hilarious. Wizard of Oz as a parody is kinda overdone, but you really pulled this off and I could not stop laughing. Best of all, it actually makes SENSE xD
| swallowingtears chapter 1 . 8/7/2010
Jesus H Christ I love this story. And you for writing it. I lost track of how many LOLs and ROFLMAOs I... emitted... while reading this. Way to skewer CLAMP! I too have a love hate relationship with them; I keep buying their damned books even though they never make sense. And the journey device a la Wizard of Oz... God I wish I had the wit. Jesus. As soon as I can log on this is going into my faves.
The Wizard of Angst. Muahaha. And Seishiro as the Psychopath... delicious. Am off to buy a muffin now.
| Kesa Ange chapter 1 . 8/7/2010
That was AWESOME. Awesomely brilliantly clever. Seriously, pegging this as one of my favourite Tsubasa fics, and I haven't even read X or Tokyo Babylon. BRILLIANT. GENIUS. FANTASTIC.

LOL, loved it! My sister's getting freaked out because I almost passed out on the floor laughing. Great job! )
