How Wonderful Life Is While You Are In The World by SweetLittleVampire How Wonderful Life Is While You Are In The World by SweetLittleVampire
:rose: Happy Grelliam Day! :rose:

Fitting Song: [link]

I may add a song chosen by the happy couple if they pick one. :meow:

Yesterday was a very special day for my friend :iconlumbabsfan:~LumBabsFan .
As you may know, she has a Grell RP blog on tumblr, sutcliff1799 , and yesterday her Grell muse got married to her personal William, enduringreaper / :iconxoravenoxeap:~xoravenoxeap! :icongrelllaplz:

Sadly I was unable to join the festivities due to lack of a tumblr (I don´t have an account...yet) and timezone issues, and so I decided to draw them a little wedding picture as special wedding gift. :aww:

Sooo, my dearest couple, I wish you all the best one could wish you. May you live together happily ever after. :hug:

Well personally I do see Grell as a bit of both. I mean, he (I say "he" s in "the character") 
sometimes displays male traits and ways of behaving as well, which I link to the following things:

- The time period in which Grell lives
- The environment in which the manga was written (read: Japan´s view on LGBTQUIA+ things)
- Each and every person sometimes displays behaviour that will be attributed to the opposite gender. In fact,
I do not believe that there is something like "typically male" or "typically female". Whos´ idea was it anyway
to attribute gender to behaviour, or feelings, or pieces of clothing? In the 16th century, men wore high heels,
so why should they be female only?

So I try to show a bit of both sides. In fact, Grell is such a complex and multidimensional character that I´m pretty
sure I won´t ever be able to show all of his facettes. That being said, I love to explore his feminine side, and I know
he would enjoy it.

(Also, would someone introduce me to him in person, I would probably greet him with "Mr Sutcliff" but jump
to using "she" as soon as he´d go "Call me Miss Grell, dearie". It´s just that in my mother tongue, many words
are gendered, which is not the case in English, and the word for "character" happens to have a male pronoun,
that´s why I keep on thinking and writing "he" - not necessarily because I label Grell as male.)

But hey, as said - this is my opinion, and mine only. People are welcome to disagree with me, and discuss their
views with me, as long as they stay mature and respectful. This is why I don´t want the famous Grell pronoun 
war happening on my page, as it often takes a nasty turn. And I want each and every opinion to feel comfy here. :3

((I probably rambled on waaay too much now, I´m sorry. XD I should probably write a jornal about this. ))

dont worry, complete replies are good( although they scare me XD)
i always referred to grell as a he, until i saw something that yana toboso put in which she said that grell was a transexual
and i agree who is somebody to say what is proper to use just because you are a man or a woman,for example when i was little  i liked to play with male and female toy

You probably mean the character book? I own a copy, and in that Grell states he wants a sex change.
Besides that Yana has always used male pronouns when talking about Grell, so...yeah. I think it´s linked to how
Grell uses female pronouns for himself, and how this is being viewed in Japanese culture. It´s a bit of a
complicated story, and I think I am going to write a journal about it and link to a few ressources I have.

I guess with Grell, there is no real wrong or right, and I actually like that idea. 
As long as it´s Grell you can never go wrong. XD

Oh so lovely!  I can just picture them like this if William wasn't such a tight ass about his job.  Of course, unlike with the SherWatson (b)romance, I think that Will will remain married to his work and a stickler for duty.  :X *is starting to have second thoughts about only watching the anime, but thinks the manga is too violent to continue*

Where are you at the moment in the manga? There are also a few more light-hearted chapters.

I only got through the first volume before I stopped.  Sebastian unnerved me way too much; it seemed to be ripping off of a similar manga that unnerved me when I was in my younger teens, Godchild.  The only difference was that Cain's half-siblings are also a focus of the manga, and his butler wasn't a demon, but rather the legacy of the charge he cared for.

I LOVE Godchild! It´s the reason why I got into Black Butler in the first place. XD

Godchild had enough legitimate story, and occult influences, to keep my interest, but if I hate the protagonist, what's the point of reading it?  I know I'll have to put up with them more often than I can tolerate.  I watch Black Butler for the side characters; I could care less what happened to Ciel and Sebastian, especially since they treat others so badly.

SweetLittleVampire Featured By Owner Edited Aug 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, Sebastian´s still a demon, and since he solely formed the contract because he was bored and hungry and sees himself above mere humans anyways, I don´t see a reason why he should treat Ciel in any other way than he does.
Besides Ciel can be real bratty now and then (I blame it on his teenager years), so I can understand where that behaviour comes from.
Sometimes I think it´s "their" way of showing affection...you know, like with those people who insult you only if they like you. You´ll need to be able to read them.

I liked Cain though. He has his flaws, but nobody is flawless. He grows up alone and he´s the master (besides being bored to death) and he´s seventeen - of course he´s going to party hard, fool around amd do a lot of nonsense. Of course he´s going to be rude because there´s no one in the area to show him his limits, uncle Neal not being permanently with him and Riff, as his butler, not being in the position to teach him a lesson. But I think he also behaves like that to hide how vulnerable and lonely he is. He has become the head of his house at a very young age and, unlike Ciel, he´s revolting more against it because he never really had the time to digest what he went through. He has no demon to lend him his power, he has to do it all by himself. I think you see his kindness when you look at how he treats Merryweather.

Though my favourite will always be Jizabel.

(Sorry for the novel; I get carried away whenever I talk about Godchild... ^^; )

No, it's fine.  I feel like I understand Cain a little more because of his asshole of a father not being there for him (He beat him for crying out loud!  Ciel is such a crybaby after only one brand on his back and his parents being killed before his eyes.), and I've always liked Byronic heroes (19th century men who follow the statement "Live fast, die young." while being knowledgable on a variety of subjects and pursuits) better that Victorian era brats, even before I knew the term Byronic hero.  Naturally, Cain will learn someday what his limits are, but for now, the dark gentleman is going to live it up in the darkest and seediest corners of London as much as he is in high society.

Well technically it was Augusta, but yes.

I find it on one hand interesting, on the other hand very difficult to compare Ciel and Cain.
I think if they´d met they would have been slightly interested but still neutral business partners, Cain investing his money into Funtom at all.

Oh don't despair, love. You're still so very young!
You know how my marriage came about? I saw that beautiful wedding dress at a second-hand store and just had to have it. Low and behold, I found a husband to go with it ^^
~so~ start with the dress. (And screw whoever thinks that's a backwards approach). Even if a hubby doesn't come along right away, at least you get to look hella pretty :D

Oh, finding a hubby (a wife in my case) wouldn´t be the problem, since I foundmy match ten years ago (my first teenage love - I´m 25 now) and we have been happily together since then. :heart:

There are only two problems: I´m a lady myself, and the law in my homecountry is being a b*tch when it comes to marrying someone of the same gender. Plus, she doesn´t want to - not because she doesn´t love me...she witnessed her parents´ divorce and seems to be traumatised by it. She´s afraid our relationship will fail if we marry, so she prefers not to do so, and I respect that. Though I´d love to say "yes" to her before the law.

How would you feel about saying "yes" before a bunch of your friends with no legal obligations? Have a casual little "ceremony" as just an opportunity to celebrate your love with your friends and eat cake :nod:
