"Rose for the New Year"
 
   Well, what can I say?

First off, it is a wonderful follow-up for all the hardships exposed in Christmas Rose. The feel I got from reading the story was that this is a small pause for everyone to take a deep breath, and get ready for the proverberial 'Round 2'.

Favorite scene: Gryphon getting his ass blown out of the dojo and into the koi pond. I'm still snickering when I think about it. :-D

Best scene: Utena and Dorothy's discussion. (We get to see more Dorothy! Yay!)

That, and it sets up the foundations for a few things to be carried forward into the arc. Like I said in a fanchannel discussion tonight, it would have been nice if this Movement had had a plot, but I'll take slice-of-life in a holiday piece. The bits of this story don't have much to do with each other, on the face of it, except that they're all happening to the same people in the same week, but there are things behind the obvious which are at work, and anyway, sometimes life is like that.

Gryphon-sensei's helpful memo to self for the day: Don't quote the villain when you're talking to the heroine, even if you have no way of knowing you're doing it. :)

Oh my yes. Lots more Dorothy. And I've got some other very fun supporting cast in the works for the next Movement, too...

   Nice use of the Big O's catchphrase on the sword.. the correct catchphrase I might add... I also get a big grin out of the appearance of Eris in the tale, the whole scene felt like something straight out of Illuminatus!

   The worst part about the bit with MegaZone calling Eris was that my mind synched the sound up to make it work with:

"Simon.... Theodore.... ALVIN!" (And then Zoner gets turned into an eggplant for a moment as Eris yells, "Okay!")

(I know it's the wrong time of the year, but pull out 'Chipmunks Christmas Song' and listen, and you'll understand.)
