I have to apologize for not replying to the comments of the previous entry. Last week was extremely hectic for me. But this week’s episode of HakuSei turned out pretty delicious! Oh the smutness of it all! So please, read on and join me as I savor this episode to its last smutty detail.
Paul was looking for the banshee and asked Nico for directions. Paul was about to go when Nico stopped him. Nico asked for a gentleman’s portrait in exchange for guiding Paul to the banshee. After following the fairy steps, they found the banshee and also Ulysses, a man with the blood of the Earl’s descendant. Paul tried to convince the banshee that Edgar is the Earl instead. Ulysses told Ermine to take care of Paul. Nico tried to run away but the devil dog stared down at him. After the incident, Nico was delivered through a box to the Earl’s residence. Edgar tried to cheer Lydia up due to Nico’s unconsciousness, but he was told to shut up. Raven thought it was an order for him too, but Lydia said that Raven was fine to talk. Nico finally woke up, and found his whiskers gone. Needless to say, Nico completely flipped out.
Nico explained what happened to Paul after meeting up with Ulysses, the fairy doctor. Nico told Edgar that Ulysses professed to be the Earl. Due to the shock, Nico said that he could not remember the name of the Selkie, the woman assisting Ulysses. After looking at himself in the mirror, Nico fainted. It was apparent that Ulysses knew about fairies well. Edgar ordered Raven to scan the area with the Scarlet and he also told Lydia that the name was associated with the Prince. Edgar also asked about the prediction of the banshee’s tears. Lydia was wondering how Edgar asked, and told him that it was one week. Paul also got back, and it seemed that Ulysses wanted to find the special amber tear in order to break the seal blocking the banshee’s memories.
They also wondered if Ulysses really had the blood of the Earl. Edgar asked if there was any way to trick a fairy about it, and they concluded that Ulysses truly had the blood. They speculated that Paul probably had that amber tear around him, and decided to look for it. It seemed that learning the memories of the previous Earl through the amber would give Ulysses the similar powers of an Earl. That is also why the Prince wanted that amber so much. We also see a dialog between Ermine and Kelpie. Ermine told Kelpie to take care of her woman and bring her away from Edgar if he did not wish for her to die. Kelpie also appeared to Edgar, telling him to get rid of Lydia’s marriage proposal. Kelpie warned him that he would drag Lydia into the prophesy. Kelpie also tried to hypnotize Edgar, but disappeared after the appearance of Raven.
Raven came in and said that he saw Ermine. Edgar said a human cannot be revived, which meant that Ermine was probably a fairy. Lydia tried to console Nico with gentleman gifts after Nico hid under the bed. Nico said that Lydia should be careful of Ulysses, and he had the ability to control those dark dogs. Nico warned her to rid her hands out of Edgar’s matter. Lydia said she had to help, and dragged Nico out of the bed. Nico mentioned that Ulysses seemed to call the Selkie Ermine, and it was probably Raven’s sister. At Club Slade, Edgar checked whether the amber was there at O’Neil’s paintings. Edgar warned the man to report to him or Raven, rather than communicating through Jimmy (a little delivery boy). Edgar was worried that the spies of Prince have infiltrated the Scarlet, and did not want unnecessary lives to be lost. After the discussion, he decided to drink at the gentleman’s club.
Lydia was worried about Edgar and decided to visit him. Lydia was clearly flustered, but Raven told Lydia to see Edgar since it was rare for her to appear at this time. When Edgar opened the door, he looked very cheerful. Lydia wondered if she was worrying in vain. Edgar asked why Lydia knew how much he missed her. Lydia wanted to go because it was late. Edgar chased her but faltered. Lydia got worried and stepped back to hold his balance. It was a trick as Edgar asked her to support him as a lover. Lydia reminded him that she came as a friend. Edgar told her he wanted to spend the night with her.
Edgar told her that he could not live without her, and told her to be his woman. Lydia said she did not want to belong to anyone. Edgar told her again that he could not live if he was forsaken. Lydia was carried into the bedroom, and thrown on the bed. He said that he was an useless man. He then asked if he would be forgiven for this, before mouthing “Ermine.” Lydia seemed hurt over his last words. We also realized that Jimmy was in fact the spy, the black dog.
13sugars’ Kyaaing thoughts
I was surprised when I saw Paul looking for banshee all by himself on what I could only perceive as an ungodly hour. Perhaps, beneath his artistic and gentle attitude lurked his eccentric, risky and dashing personality. He was adorable in this episode while Ulysses was intense. Raven was cool as ever and Lydia was her usual shoujo-heroine self. Kelpie, on the other hand, was suave this time while Edgar was drunk, sweet and drop-dead charming! Oh the bishieness!
Whiskerless Nico was pretty hilarious too. And again, I was hit with more mysteries. What was Ulysses connection to the previous Blue Knight Earl, Lady Gladys? Why did he want to unravel the past of the late Blue Knight Earl using Banshee-tear pearls? What was Ermine’s involvement with him? What the heck was the banshee’s name?
But with these new questions, came new revelations as well. The black poochy was actually a young boy named Jimmy who served as a spy of Ulysses, and probably the Prince too. There were incombustible Banshee-tear pearls in Edgar’s and probably Paul’s hands, too. Ermine, Raven’s sister, was no longer human but a selkie. How she became a selkie was not mentioned though. She kept spying on Edgar a lot though, and Edgar seemed he really cared a lot about her. I mean he even went to a gentleman’s club to drink and try to forget his sorrows over her supposed death.
It was so kya-kya when he was thinking of how a portrait reminded him of Lydia and how he missed her so terribly while drinking a London dry gin. But when Lydia came over to check up on him out of worry and he tried to beg/seduce/bed Lydia, I thought all the saints of smutness had blessed a fan like me. Then they went and ruined it by making the moment bitter. Edgar was on top of Lydia on the bed, confessing his love and all, then he went, “You will forgive me, right … Ermine?” I was like, “Oh no, he didn’t!” But oh my gosh! Was it just me, or did Lydia look like she was a bit hurt in that scene? So kya-kya!
However, the most interesting scene here for me was when Kelpie and Ermine had their discussion by the fountain. The two of them seemed like they were acquainted, or at least they were no strangers to one another.
