Two words of caution before I begin a post that could possibly squick people :D

1) No, it's not a release and no, morau is not cackling at the antsy Junjou (especially Terrorist) fans who are chomping at the bit for the next release. No, not at all.

2) If you obsess over cleanliness, you might experience a heart attack or shivers down your spine or invisible creepy crawlies on your skin as you read this.

Now are you SURE you still want to read this?

If you're still reading this, I applaud your brave (but foolish) soul. Slightly skewed grammar ahead too.


So basically today, morau spontaneously felt the need to clean her room.

She hasn't cleaned it for more than half a year, by the way. Would have been longer, but she actually only moved in half a year ago so...

You see, the need to tidy up a little came from the fact that she hadn't actually seen her desk in months (hidden under precariously stacked piles of paper, DVDS, other random pieces of stationery) and she was sick of balancing her plates and bowls of food on the tiny gap between the edge of the desk and the keyboard (kept cleared because it would be bothersome to type otherwise).

So morau thus embarked on the arduous, and rather health-hazardous, quest of cleaning her room. The first thing she discovered once she sorted through the piles of paper and DVDs was that there was a lolly at the bottom. Now, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but this lolly had been there for months as well, and sometime in the summer, the lolly must have melted or ate away at the wrapping, because morau discovered this lolly lying in a congealed, sticky puddle of melted lolly.

I emphasize once again that it's been there for MONTHS.

This was a melon flavored lolly too, so it basically looked like slime. Now, amazingly, it hadn't stuck to any of my papers or ANYTHING, just the surface of the desk. Now, any NORMAL girl would have shrieked and hurriedly drowned it in some sort of industrial-strength cleaning agent and wrestled it off, but no, morau being slightly deranged, decided to go to her brother's room and inform him of her awesomeness.

Her brother wasn't really impressed, since he's cleaner than I am in general living habits. Well, sod him.

But alas, the lolly slime could not stay there forever, so morau went to fetch some cleaning spray and a cloth to get it off. It came off quite easily though.

morau continued to clean, ridding the desk and computer vents of many, many, many, many dust bunnies, and encountering nothing particularly gross until she removed some of her bags from the floor to move them around and see if she can squeeze in some more space. What did she find under the bag? A dead bug.

Not sure what kind of bug, but it was significantly big, and quite, quite dead. When morau plucked its corpse from the carpet (fingers covered by a shield of scrap paper), she discovered that the corpse was quite dry and crunchy, since it sort of crunched in her fingers. Like biscuit. So it was not only dead, it had been dead for quite some time too.

When morau finally cleaned 70% of her room, it had taken her more than four hours. And she also discovered her carpet was actually supposed to be a different color.

Her father saw morau cleaning her room and said: "Oh my god, the sun rises from the west now."

Well, minus the 'oh my god' part.

morau's mother was so delighted and moved she almost squealed (but didn't, because morau's mother is too awesome to squeal).

morau's brother was giving morau 'you are the most disgusting female EVAR' face.

morau still hasn't finished the other 30% of her room.

I recently cleaned my room too, but I'm not as messy as you ;p

At least you didn't find unidentifiable things in your room. That's a true sign of "omg when was that last time I cleaned my room?"

Gosh, you reminded me I have to clean mine too =_=; at least I'm cleaner than my brother, so he's the one finding strange things under the carpet...
Good luck for the other 30%!

lol, i know the feeling, but you're more motivated compared to me. the last time i cleaned out my closet, after 1 hour i just rolled things back where they came from and shut the door. and i usually get rough comments[threats] from my mom about "cleaning" my room for me....what she will really do is just sweep everything that's not hardware/school-related/clothes/expensive items to the trash heap as a form of tidying my room, but that threat works on me everytime...^___^ Good for you!

LOL i vacuumed 2 cockroaches. 1 dead, 1 alive and moving.

Now, any NORMAL girl would have shrieked and hurriedly drowned it in some sort of industrial-strength cleaning agent and wrestled it off, but no, morau being slightly deranged, decided to go to her brother's room and inform him of her awesomeness.
LOL!

Wow
Thank you for the translations. I love junjou and was content (not really) to wait...

Wow... I am really speechless. How amazing you are to BUY 7-10 (minus 9) just to scan for us. All I can say is 'WOW' and thank you!

XDDD;

Actually you're not alone on this one. I never clean my room unless it's at the point were I can barely walk freely around in my room. And then when I start cleaning my room, my family are all surprised that I'm actually cleaning something. :P Bugs are always in my my room now that I have an AC... so it's really bothersome when a beetle or flying moth feels like flying to my face when I'm busy doing work or other stuff.

But hrm.. a melted month ol' lolly. I've yet to see that. XD

But have you finished cleaning the rest of your room now?

It was so fabulous to meet you today, Morau! I had so much fun at the con; wasn't it just great? It's so nice to put a face to your name and whenever I see your scanlations now, you know I'll be thinking good thoughts about you hugging Suzuki-san!

Hahaha! That was funny. I can just see all the reactions of your family members. That was the liveliest and most amusing 'cleaning-my-room' adventure I have ever read!

Hiya! This is grey_damaskena. I'm sorry to be leaving you a comment so randomly, but I dropped by because you're a member of the saiunkoku community. I just wanted to let you know that there's currently a poll running on the community to gauge interest in getting the Saiunkoku Monogatari light novels translated into English. The number of answers in the poll could very well determine whether or not we ever see an English version of the novels. So if you have the time and have not done so already, we would really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to answer it.

Please either drop by the saiunkoku community (the poll is in the fifth post), or click on this link to go directly to the post.

Thank you very much for your time, and for your interest and support of Saiunkoku!
