Posted by: 1n50mn14c Mar 22 2004, 02:41 AM
Hayasaka trips
She falls, dragging Largo down
Down into the crowd?

Is her cover blown?
It's all because of Largo,
wires cover the floor.

Posted by: AOK1313 Mar 22 2004, 02:46 AM
Her foot catches it
Falling because of a wire
Largo goes with her.

Now down together
On the floor they did fall
Hope they don't get seen.

Posted by: larc3ny Mar 22 2004, 03:13 AM
down onto the ground
erika falls with largo
compromising, yes?

why did she grab him
and not use both arms to fall?

Hayasama falls
but whether her defence falls
is another tale

Posted by: DCR Mar 22 2004, 03:17 AM
Has she clutched cliché,
Dragging the 1337 master down
Accidentally?

Mixed up the times, here I stay.

She Thought of Escape
She Tripped on a Cord Grabbing
Largo, L33T Master

With this fall, here now
You know how suggestive things
Are going to happen

And so the fall goes
Swiftly, but leaves the thoughts of
Feelings blooming here

Largo will be hurt
For landing on Erika
He should start praying.

"Megatokyo is just

Oh god, I hope not.

Steadfast stubbornness
A slip and fall, clinging grasp
Awkwardness ahead

He had cast out cords
A net to catch a http://www.megatokyo.com/index.php?strip_id=485
Has roped the real thing.

She needs no help
Except, perhaps, to get up.
Hm? Sound familiar?
Kimiko's coffee capades,
Mirror Erika's falling

Posted by: Peorth Mar 22 2004, 04:51 AM
Down goes one of them
The second one soon follows
Then all is quiet

Posted by: Nebulious Mar 22 2004, 05:14 AM
"Largo-Erika!"
I cross my fingers, eager.
"Keep it PG, Fred!"

[/haiku]Sorry, couldn't resist. ph34r.gif [haiku]

Rigid, unbending
The trees confront in autumn
A stray breeze flows by

The mountain has moved.
Avalanche of emotion:
disaster follows.

[3-5-3]
Her pride stung
Acting in anger
Folly's price

Posted by: KimikoFan Mar 22 2004, 10:39 AM
The wires were exposed
Now Erica and Largo
go down to the floor.

I wonder what is
happening out of our sight
down in the clutter.

The wild thoughts and
suppositions based on fact
or merely fiction?

Wensday or friday?
when will we know? the truth
of Largo and Erica. happy.gif

Posted by: jenamoured Mar 22 2004, 11:39 AM

compromising, yes.
perhaps seraphim should be
reassigned quite soon.

moment betwixt flight and fall

The words of this cosplaying missy
Are more than a little bit hissy;
Then she drags Largo down
As she falls to the ground -
Will this pair get a little bit kissy? blink.gif

Would it not be intresting if you know... they actually kissed for real or something? that would be totally out of the anime cleche thing. I mean, you would expect her to hurt largo, or for it to end up in embarresment, how weird would it be if it did not? What a twist!

old fangirl cheers on
the romantic cheesy plot
of boy and idol

My first, sorry for how horrible it is...>_< But I had to!

Erika is down
Largo is on top of her.
Oh! I want to see!

[Shakesperian haiku]
Despite his heartfelt offers for his aid,
She scorned him, bearing only bitter stares.
Both honors wounded, matched reply was made
And clashing egos battled in the air.
To prove her back was forced against no wall
She moved to leave, but in stepped gravity.
We all know pride cometh before a fall:
Only this time, it's meant quite lit'rally.
Outstreched, a flailing, panicked hand did fly,
And Largo went down to, to his surprise.
Now arms in arms, they might see eye to eye.
Or perhaps lips shall meet rather than eyes?
This grand exeunt which gravity objects
Might lead to more intangible effects...
[/Shakesperian haiku]

[irish_haiku]
More likely someone will discover
This couple locked up with each other,
Like Junpei or Miho,
Or the boss, or just Piro,
And mistake them for fugitive lovers.

[irish haiku]
Erika is annoyed at the fanboy's "attack"
she doesn't need anyone to protect her back
but while leaving..down she goes
only able to grab the shirt of Largo's
hopfully he doesn't land upon her "rack"
[/irish haiku]

Releasing the tension.

I like this one very much.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Love, a mystery
The ones that are shared, always
falling toward the heart

Relax, for a time
Those that cannot see the truth
Knowing better off

For a time of want
A beautiful silence
Eyes closed of past thought

One hundred fanboys
One Hayasaka-sama
Only Largo knows...

Will laughter help out in this case,
When the two find themselves face-to-face?
Or will Fred decide,
To take us for a ride?
(Guess I'll hedge my bets - just in case)

innocence matters
nothing to the hardcore fans;
appearance rules all.

[irish_haiku]
If the fans down the stairway discover
The seeming embrace of two lovers,
They’ll be stalked by a posse
Of Japan’s paparazzi,
Who will put them on magazine covers.

from one little fall
branch such a plethora of
possibilities! happy.gif

[/Haiku]Okay, I've definately overdone my quota of dirty remarks... Yea, the above works on many levels.[Haiku]

Almost symbolic,
she trips when her foot is like
that of high-heeled shoes.

She's strong, good figure...
Fiery sprirt to match.
Can she kill zombies?

There once was a fall
Not caused by a ball
Largo he fell,
When Erika wrang her bell
Where will they be
when all come in to see

Actually, I wonder
Does Erika speak Tongan?

Falling to the crowd

May soon be fulfilled.

Largo is dragged down
With the idol Erika
Fans will envy him.
