Where have you been hiding all my life? I have seen only the credits for The Little Fairy and already I am enthralled.

ETA: For some reason that I do not at all understand, the hero is obsessed with apples. And sticking them in jam or something.

ETA 2: Beside our main plot we also have another one of a celestial being falling in love with a human who is now a teacher who wears a floppy hat. And the Little Fairy has turned a random god into a carrot.

A while back inspired by [livejournal.com profile] calixa and [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore I did a picspam of Jason Bourne: Wuxia Hero. I was, however, but an amateur dabbling in the deep, deep waters of wuxia manpain.

[livejournal.com profile] calixa, on the other hand, is a master. And, lo, she has taken her skills and created a video that proves once and for all the essential manpain laden, tragic, and wuxiaish nature of Jason Bourne.

Look upon this work of staggering genius and despair:

What is wuxia, you ask? Well, even if you don't ask I will tell for I have researched* it very thoroughly. Wuxia is a genre of historical dorama in which there are magic swords, flying carpets, much flying through air while fighting and training, people falling into rivers and getting out and still battling for hours, and - MOST IMPORTANTLY - excessive amounts of very attractive manpain. This manpain usually results because his love is FORBIDDEN. And not just regular forbidden, either: this is Forbidden with a capital F, carved on the sides of mountains and inscribed into the laws of at least 4 countries.

But I bring you possibly the one and only Jason Bourne: Wuxia Hero post.

This is Jason Bourne. A man who walks alone. A man with no memories (well, no happy ones). A man tortured by excessive amounts of angst and manpain. Plus guilt. WE MUST NOT FORGET THE GUILT.

Many, many images of manpain and angst behind cut. Spoilers for the second Bourne film. Nothing major for the third, I think. )

*And by researched I mean I have looked at many lovely picspams on [livejournal.com profile] calixa's,* [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie's, and [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore's*
livejournals. From which I also stole the pictures.

*And who also came up with the whole Bourne = wuxia hero idea.
