And now, finally, properly, to anyone interested in my obscure existence, welcome and it´s a pleasure!

paperclip Drop me a note somewhere when friending me, so that I don´t freak out!

It's been so, so long

PROJECT FULL INBOX: People love getting lots of emails, so let's use this week to fill up the inboxes of friends with random things to brighten their days! Comment here saying you want a FULL INBOX so I can begin plotting my attack, then put this in your journal so your friends can let you know that they want a full inbox from you. Whether it is a ton of random comments on entries, pointless PMs, or emails with questionable gifs attached, let's have a week of full inbox fun!

Merry Christmas
(darksecret) Sehun
Thank you to everyone who has stuck it out with me despite my frequent absence.


I don't think I have met anyone new on LJ in the past year, so in short. Share an apple with me, so whenever you are lost or on the crossroad, you think of me and know you can always come to me ♥

May your Christmas be full of joy and peace and love and may you spent it with people you love and care for.

(KAT-TUN) MaruDa in suits
... aka this isn't all that well thought out, but I don't care because MaruDa is turning 30, and I want to love them a little more.


Technically this is also a little late, and I really won't mind if any and all activity carries past October 4th.

To celebrate the wonderful thing that is the bond of one Nakamaru Yuichi and Ueda Tatsuya, who have been giving us joy and shipping material for years now, I challenge you!

Comment to this post and spam pictures, give me your feelings, write fics, post fic ideas and prompts, answer those prompts, share your doujinshi, look for couple clothes, share conspiratorial theories, flail and cry on my shoulder because Ueda and Nakamaru will both be 30 in a month and they still look younger than you, give me reasons why I (I mean everyone) should ship them (more), invite your friends, have a party!

Anything goes, this post stays public, let's have fun! Let's have an awesome MaruDa month. (The idea was not mine, but I sure hope Levy and Seki forgive me for stealing it).

I promise to make a master post of things in comments so people do not have to look for it.

Need a little incentive?

Maruda and dress shirts, and ties, and more ties (and you know other polka dot men apparel), and in leather jackets, and Ueda making Nakamaru's PV that much better, and Nakamaru telling you who really uses the whip in this relationship. And have MaruDa reminding you just how long they have been the perfection they are. Even if their radio made of awesome (and the related regular couple shoots) is no longer.

Have MaruDa
serenading you because of course Nakamaru takes Ueda with him to his SCP performance.

Enjoy them pimping each other's acting work in an interview or watch them discuss hairstyles like it's serious business.

And top it off with some lovely meta that makes you melt.

Now it's your turn, I will encourage all and every notion of affection. Spread the word, have some fun.

Shiny things to be found in comments:
Suits and ties (with a little written bonus)
another collection of fanart, omg so much awesome

Don't Make Me Come Back There. I Beg You
AutoCorrect Refresh
This Is You
A Well-Laid Plan
Moonlight Without A Blueprint

Threads where you can request something to be written do you by a specific author:
Levy's drabble thread
Alex' prompt me thread
Ri's "find-me-something-i-want-to-write" request thread
!You can always leave random prompts and story ideas, things you have always wanted to see written about them in general comments and maybe some good fairy will pick it up. This is not limited to requesting from people who specifically offered to write. And of course you can pick any of the prompts and write something for it too ....

MaruDa feels all over the place because talks of first impressions, and joy, but seriously check this out

Merry Christmas and happy New Year

Hello everyone!

I keep wanting to post and here I am too late for anything else than for wishing you the usual. It's Christmas Eve here, and that's when all the magic happens in this family.

The cakes for sure are ready ;D

And so let me wish you merry, blessed Christmas full of love and joy and a great year 2013 filled with success and good things.

Thank you for sticking with me for yet another year, for giving me chance to meet you, to talk to you, to share all my ups and downs with you. I love you all.

my father is in love with this snowman in our yard ;D

Fic games statistic
(Dorama) Akira shock!
Fic games 2012 ended.

I can't say I regret running it, but I must say it wasn't as much fun as it could have been. But Jess, my awesome co-mod, not only took so much off my hands when my real life became extremely busy, she also saved the official Fic Games community from me expressing some of my ... discomforts, lol. Anyway, this is not the post where I'll voice them either because I'm in no mood to recreate that again right now. But maybe one day I will. Because really, I feel like some things should be said even if they make me sound pressed, might feel uncomfortable to someone or make me the bad guy.

ANYWAY, there was an idea to post top individual fics from this year. Not to post all scores, I don't want to put anyone on spot, but just some. If someone did the work, this info is public, which is why I feel it is okay to do this. We just did the math for you since we had to.

So I am listing the top 5 fics according to overall scores. Before I do, a few remarks.
- scores are overall once; it seems LJ no longer provides you with things like average and median when you close the poll (this could have been see in the previous years of Fic Games, but I either need a special code for this which I do not know or LJ changed their polls functioning).

- thus essentially, these might not be the fics that had the BEST ranking, but the ones with most votes. On the other hand, I believe lots of people do not vote instead of giving low points, so it is a bit telling (the best scoring fic was KAT-TUN gen!!!), but then, e.g. akame is not half as read as it used to be - more like shunned, so it is only natural that there won't be as many voters.

- the points of team mates are not counted in; there were few people who voted on fics of their own teams but in accordance with the rules, these votes were not taken into account.

cut for the kick ass tableCollapse )

There are things to learn from these polls. Not all AU is AU enough. People will vote on certain fics but will not comment on them (more than on others). Gen is loved a lot. People who don't write are stricter voters than writers themselves. This year, it was much less about the category and much more about the fics themselves...

These are generalizations, but the creeper I am, it was interesting to see the polls evolve (even if LJ did stupid stuff like allow people to check two scores for one question despite the fact it should not be possible with this type of poll, lol).

So I hope this was fun for someone else than me, and I do not sound too creepy.

I am out of fun facts for the moment. Your thoughts and observations?

(Dorama) Akira shock!
SO, as I have already mentioned, Je Fic Games are happening again this year. Here have the link to the big announcement post.

I have a question for you all. We need to think of a theme/prompts for this year and there was the idea of using famous JE quotes. And the perfect example of “What’s wrong with being naked?“

But I am really bad at these things, so the first thing to do is to ask the f-list. Any ideas what else could be used? More quotes from our lovely boys?

In rl news, I have moved, everything went wrong, and I am doing all the things at the same time. I have no clue why I am starting yet another fandom event right now ;__;

Also one more RL question: For some reason, this place attracts little insect like crazy. I have never seen this, not even in mother nature so to speak. I´m using Reid (repellent put into an electric socket) for inside, but all it does is to kill all these tiny, tiny flies and some mosquitoes until the morning. But this means I wake up to my floor covered in little flies. I could vacuum clean every day, and it spreads everywhere. IDK what to do. Any ideas? I need to google if there isn’t a herb that repels them or something so they don’t even want to fly in, but until then . . . suggestion?

*shaking from stress, disappointment and anger*
(darksecret) Sehun
Since morning:

- one of the drawers of the new drawer set fell appart, it basically broke and the chances are I will not be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer. Plus this means, I cant use it. Which means I have nowhere to put my clothes.

- kitchen is all fucked up.
>> My father´s electrician put the electric outlet in the wrong place
>> One of the pieces of kitchen furniture is wrong
>> the kitchen was drawn badly from the start, so there will be holes in wrong places and stuff like that
>> the people assembling the kitchen just chipped off a piece of the wall and dirtied another part of it.

I am so tired at the moment. And the day is not over, so more things can go wrong in the process.

eternal cycle of mod
(Junjo) egoist

Devil or Angel.

Now posting!

I've had like a long plead/rant ready in my head about how and why people should comment, but then few people were actually awesome enough to do so, so I calmed down.

Anyway still, please if you read (and actually finish) a fic, it probably already means it is good on some level because these are not short by far. Please do leave a comment then.

Just. Help me make the posting phase of this challenge as enjoyable as the writing (hopefully) was for the authors. The community being alive and people actually reading and flailing over the things authors plotted together is a big part of the challenge being fun and worth running. ♥

In other news. I am crazy. I have managed to get in contact with the mods of je_ficgames, and I want to run it again. I'm recruiting a comod though because running Fic games is not the least complicated thing out there, and it is time consuming at moments (team communities, prompt claiming, more coding during posting ...). I can't do this alone. I was also looking at the schedule and the one possibility I like the most clashes with my vacation (and no Internet) time, so I really do need help. Anyone interested?

That is all for today. Life updates when life stops being too time demanding ;D

(KAT-TUN) Ueda waaaaaaaaaaaa!
I'm not sure if one can call it hiatus if it never gets better. But I'm sorry if I'm not the best of friends lately. Life's been kind of mean to me, stealing even my weekends and dragging me around Czech republic and Slovakia too much and if not that, then I am touring furniture and kitchen studios and such.

THIS is the only thing that has made me stop so I am embeding it.

I WILL REPLY TO ALL THE THINGS IN . . . two weeks. Maybe, hopefully. Come to think of it, I might not have that weekend free either >.>

Also, do you know of a good Czech lawyer who will teach me for free? I am kind of desperate for a sempai..

This might be silly but it is self indulgent and with it out in the open, I will sleep soundly
(KAT-TUN) Ueda what?
Today, the day has come for me to be name dropped on a hate meme.

Maybe some other day, I would just shrug it off and move on. But today, it wasn’t the best of Mondays, so I got upset over it.

I mean, I always thought that if I should ever be relevant enough for one of these memes, it would be because of my modding attempts. Otherwise, I feel quite irrelevant in fandom. The last fic I posted out of exchange, for example, got no comments. But I’m not the most lenient mod, and sometimes I wonder if I’m not taking “fandom responsibilities” a bit too far – compared to how some other people view them. But surprisingly, even after the harsher mod runs (and I had a few) people always stayed classy, and I never had a reason to second guess my mod decisions because someone dished them on a hate meme and everyone joined the bandwagon as it happens.

But today someone actually, very helpfully, LINKED me to a silly name drop of mine. And after 4 years of happy fandom oblivion, the one thing that got me mentioned is purely an association with ONE of my friends.

I am a big girl. I’m 26, and perfectly fine with deciding for myself who I’m friends with. What really upsets me is to be defined solely based on the people I associate with. And what upsets me even more is that basically whole KAT-TUN fandom apparently is defined by this. So really, I was upset because there were my friends being talked mean about, there was this whole notion of KAT-TUN fandom being judged, and then there was me being . . . what was it exactly? Looked down on because I don’t know any better?

KAT-TUN fandom is so small lately. Or so I feel. Please stop kicking it while it’s on the ground. I like it; I don’t want people second guessing their involvement because of anything, no matter how insignificant the thread on a hate meme might seem in a big picture.

As for me. I don’t think this is a case and I have faith in my friends. BUT I would like to ask anyone who has issues with me being friends with different people to defriend me. As sad as it is, I would rather not have you on my friends’ list than to have you judging me because of my other friends or even worse to have you pitying me because I am somehow blind or incompetent and can’t chose my friends well.

For all I know, this was one person, and this person doesn’t even know me and just saw me on FTF or Jent or during some exchange posting. But this has been eating away on me because it just has been one of those days.

For what it is worth, you are all my friends because I want you to be, and GREAT chances are I was the one friending you. I really do hope you can like me even if I am easily susceptible to fandom favors.


Okinawa, my secret unrequited love
Ryoda silver
I should be doing (and posting) other things, but well . . . it's always the random stuff.

I REALLY REALLY WANT THE REMIX OF MY Tangles of what is left behind. I want the ryoda side of the story. SO BAD!!!

lol okay, thought process:

This rumor surfaced and made me laugh a lot:
Akanishi Jin plans to have an open bar, live in Okinawa and quit the entertainment industry [source]

All I can think of is how I've written that. Only not because it's not Hawaii and not a hotel and Jin has a wife in RL. STILL! I see parallels. But what I really want is the Ryoda in that story anyway. Now I just keep thinking about it (again).

Let's not talk about all the other things my brain came up with when reading that rumor (Mesia earning all the money - because taiga dorama next year, Jin on paternity leave, not wearing underwear ever again (effective birth control I hear) . . . )

Also I love Junno a lot (re his 10 000 words interview) and I handed in my FQF today with the lamest name ever.

Off to do the important stuff. ♥




Run baby run
(darksecret) Sehun
I don't have time for this. There's 100 and 5 things on my to do list plus I'm home which means PC is thought of as evil. Slovakia also won semifinals, so tonight I'm watching as we get trashed by the Russian Super Mario team (I mean Malkin or Ovechking, or whatever).

But this seems fun. It might take me a few days but

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

what was their first kiss like?
where were they their first time having sex?
who’s louder?
who wakes up first?
favorite form of foreplay?
who performs/receives oral more often?
what kink they most often use?
who more often tries new things?
if they had to choose a third (or more) person to include who would it be?
favorite toy?
is there a certain thing one of them can’t have sex without?
their general feelings on sex in the relationship?
how careful are they about using protection?
a fantasy of one that the other will never be able/willing to fulfill?

the fic wish list meme
(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
This is the last thing I should be posting.

Rules: List 1-10 pairings/prompts that you have been dying to read. Maybe it's a really rare pairing or something you've requested on any of the past smut memes which haven't been fulfilled. When you see this posted on your friends' journals, you may do one of the following:

- Write it.
- Link to one that's already been written, whether by you or someone else.
- Nothing, but karma will get you. >_>

There are no length or rating limits, and prompts may be duplicated (PLEASE). Be specific in your prompts particularly in reference to preferred smut content, seme/uke order, and any other requirements that may hinder your appreciation of the fic.

There is no deadline for this, but once your ten prompts have been written to your satisfaction you are welcome to make a new post starting over. You may write your own prompts if you want. If your tastes change, you can certainly switch out one prompt for another at any time.

My Wish List I think no one's going to be surprised by the RyoDa representation >.>Collapse )

Other wish lists I stumbled upon:

the progres check
(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
thumbsupSo, almost everything on my to-do-list is done and I think I can start stressing over the apartment issues tomorrow. I hope so.

OKFTF posted reveals. No one attempted to guess what I wrote ;__; It's a shame that it's such a "no once cares" thing because I would have liked to know how ninja or not I was this year. (Since normally I am very transparent). My recipient didn't guess me though, so yay :D

arrowroundAnyway since FTF ended, DOA is of course starting. Pimping goes here.

Devil or Angel.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.

._.;;I have a favor to ask regarding the Lyrics theme explained in the intro post. ATM I have around 30 lines from different JE lyrics, but I definitely need more.

pencilWhat I need is concrete parts of songs, that are either funny, substantial, famous for one thing or another. Like the Giri Giri part from Real Face or Omoide zutto zutto part of Love So Sweet, of course with English translation.

This is how it will look like on the actual list from which people will choose:
Kanjani8 - Misetekure: Sono karada mo Sono kokoro mo Subete boku ni misete kure (That body, that heart, show it all to me)
KAT-TUN - Love Yourself: Kimi ga kirai na kimi ga suki (I like the you that you hate)

paperclipIt can be just few words, or a longer sentence or two, but I obviously miss stuff from groups I don't really know, Kisumai, HSJ, SMAP, Tokio . . . but in general, anything that comes to your mind is fine, even famous misheard lyrics, I can always weed out the ones that I want, right?

rainHelp! I want as many choices as possible. *puppy eyes*

shockuLastly, does anyone want to write with me? I'll be a bit harder to write with this year, we'd have to start only after May 10th when I come back from Japan, and most of my writing happens on weekends these days, but I do want to participate . . .

I think this is all I have for tonight, I'm now off to fulfill the "relax" part of my to do list

Keeping the faith
(KAT-TUN) 5-nin
NOW posting!!!

cake Happy birthday KAT-TUN!

heart1Please help me spread the news, go read some good fic and comment because fandom tends to fail lately and authors need all the love they can get.

!?I'm not sure if there's someone out there who doesn't know what I've written and who would be interested in guessing . . . but I think I'm not TOO transparent this year. LOL I do hope it's less obvious than last year's "from the header".

penAnyway there's 3 more days of posting to go through, but once it's done . . . if you guess the fic I wrote, I'll write you something short (and sweet? or dirty?).

NGIn other news, IDEK how I will ever manage to pull my head above all the work I have lately. It's not good. Like really not good because of many things at work that are cumulating, and not all of them are just work load related. But I will try to hang on. I didn't want to whine. Sorry ;__;

FTF icons and . . . things
(KAT-TUN) all
car1So I've driven over 1000 miles since last Thursday. And I did not even go near the car during the weekend. This whole feat was achived by me going from Czech Republic to Poland then to Slovakia then to Czech Republic again. Fun stuff.

shockuLife's crazy, work has never been this busy (this statement is making me feel like there might be a time when one person will not be enough, especially since I'm comparing the level of busy to December/January craze. But one more person is not an option.)

moneybagAfter two weeks of searching for the reservation fee we sent to the real estate agency, the money was finally found today. I seriously thought I would end up physically crying over this because. Money. Lost. Lots of money. Penalties for late payment coming into play. New condo uncertain.

arrowroundSo in between all that, every time I felt like posting it was just whine, whine, technical stuff no one gets/is interested in, me being tired, not having time . . . so I just didn't. One day I will have free time again. And on that day I will go see Big Bang concert (ANNOUNCE THE EUROPEAN DATES ALREADY? DAMN IT!). Yeah . . .

lightbulbThe rest of this week will continue to be crazy everywhere. On top of all that, FTF POSTING STARTS ON THURSDAY!!! I am excite.

wrenchSo I've made icons (instead of working this Sunday. I feel guilty but I needed a break).

heart1 BUT I'm no pro, so I asked for help, and Vix made me icons too. I'm sharing both sets bellow the cut. First table contains icons by myxstorie, the second table are my efforts. Difference is that Vix is much bigger pro, the pictures used are mainly the same, we just possibly use different cropping and well she's just better.

winkSo there's plenty of icons, and obviously Ueda and the random Yamapi at least are not for the exchange. It may or may not give you some idea about pairings this year, though not all of them ;D

stupid Johnny made this difficult by not giving us a calender this year ;__;Collapse )

(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
Okay, never mind, I just want to do this.


Or something like that.

paperclipComment with a pairing AND a prompt/situation/kink/combination of the three, and I’ll see if I can give you a section or two of it.

impactThis is KAT-TUN/NEWS/Kanjnani8 only and I won’t porn Junno and Tegoshi, sorry. Also LOL I haven’t written many of K8 but I’m willing to try. The same goes for most of the kinks. You never know.

heartbreakYou may give me as many prompts as you want (in separate comments) and I may chose not to write any of them ;D This is for fun, pigs can fly.


The answers, where are thou?
(KAT-TUN) Ueda what?
pencilSo there's a fic feedback meme. Here's my thread if you feel like finally telling me how much I need improvement. I can take it!

computerAlso "Megaupl-gate". All the files, all gone. Also ACTA, they say it should make providers (much more) liable for the content uploaded by all their user, which would be pretty crazy. Here's the draft. I haven't seen that specifically, but I can see how countries could implement measures leading to it? I just skimmed, mind you. HAHAHA injunction in roman law legal systems. Yeah, will stop blabbing now.

paperclipBehind the cut, there are the answers to yet unanswered questions from the meme/poll post I did some time ago. I still have to do the "sharing portion" of it. And I will, but I thought there was enough for one post with just answering questions <3

here be all the answersCollapse )

Sweet tooth
(Arashi) Aiba-chan
cakeI keep forgetting to ask, does any of you have a good pancakes recipe? Probably the typical milk and butter pancakes.

!?I know I can google it and I will find bazillion of them. Which is WHY I'm asking in the first place. I'd prefer to try something that someone I know has a good experience with . . .

Happy New Year!!!

Year 2011 was a pretty crazy one. But you know, I'm 25, so this is okay. I wouldn't have it any other way :D Now, I just have to remind this to myself when 2012 continues the trend. Bring it on! I mean. It's shaping to be pretty awesome already, what with flight tickets to Japan already booked.

Anyway, everyone, really have a good one!

Trying to remember what it means regular posting (and failing)
Erika is cold
shocku Christmas it is over . . . so much hassle for . . . oh well. The hilarious moment came when me and my mother forgot to add in the presents for me (I - the shoes and she - the bag she promised to get me to go with the shoes) underneath the Christmas tree and had to go put them in while my brother was already distributing them. /fail.

christmastreeThis year, our Christmas tree was a gift from one of my father's business partners (owner of a gardening place), so it was kind of small by our standard. Different type of tree too. BUT it was super symmetrical and thick branched. Just different . . .

heartbreakWe also survived, with only little of tears on my mother's part (when crackers for dinner on December 25th were mentioned) being apart from my sister ♥ There's the next year to be all together again :D

pencilHols finished posting, and I have mixed feelings this year. Le sigh, not much of my cup of coffee. Though I think not many people could guess what I wrote (unless I told them) in this exchange, if only because not that many of you on my f-list would actively pick that fic to read. Does any of you want to try? I might drabble for you if you guess right? I just . . . *grumbles grumbles* LOL, sorry, I'm just all fidgety still.

eyesAnyway, got woken up by my work colleague today. To be fair it was 10 am, so no harm done, but he was mildly confused by my just-woken-up/sex-line-operator voice. It was funny. The aim for the rest of the vacation - do only the work I actually planned to do during my vacation, not the stuff constantly landing in my mail box.

mistNo snow this year, it feels so strange . . .

DD:I swear this post had a purpose, but I think I forgot all about it when I saw Rupert Grint in a music video. For a moment it looked like he was the one singing it (because I am only watching from the corner of my eye) and my mind was sufficiently . . . fucked. Anyway, the song's here, I like Rupert and the song is one of those I don't mind having on in the background when I just exist, so sharing :D

phone1How's everyone? I feel weirdly detached from you.

!!Also sign up for fic_the_faith ;D

Christmas wishes
(stock) world
This is becoming a tradition, one that I like. For those new to my friend's list this year, we really do split an apple during dinner on Christmas Eve, exactly for this reason, so . . .

Please have an apple with me on this Christmas Eve. If you get lost, sick or feel down, if you don't know where to go when on a crossroad, when things are tough and rough during the year, remember who you have shared the Christmas apple with. That person is always there for you.

You all know where to find me, right ♥

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

And because I just finished putting together the Christmas cookies tray, have one more picture :

apple is there for you to imagine the size of the tray ;D

I am weak

heart love meme, my thread. I really, really promise to come out of this constant string of chores and work and doctors and flat hunting (OMG!) and comment on your threads on this and the time capsule meme sometimes right before Christmas. It'll be like really late, pleasant surprise?

moneybagOnly 9 days of crazy. I am already planning tasks for January and planning what I will do work wise during the vacation, BUT! *just keep swimming*fish

!!Breaking ou of the hiatus or something because of this meme. Chances are if I don't do this now, I will have forgotten by the time I'll be back on LJ fully. Anyway, I've never done something like this before, and it sounds really nice, so:


teardropI have no words for this week. When I texted my mom, she had neither, lol. Anyway maybe I will come back to some events of it before holidays, at least briefly, but for now, packing and then sleep.

shockuOH WAIT!

shinkansenI'm going home by train tomorrow. Aside from 4 hours on one train and 30 minutes on another, I also have an hour to spend on the train station in between. I should be working, but I know I'll probably be too dead to do so after a whole day of catching up. I could write. This is not a request post, but if you have an idea, a prompt, something, leave it here. Inspire me. I have four hours; maybe I'll pick something up. (Whether you leave me the preferred characters is up to you ;D)

Is it true Ueda's character in Runaway speaks in Kansai dialect? /relevant to my nonexistent ship

Hiatus viel ;____;
(Dorama) Nodame
hourglassI wanted to post today, then I looked at the clock and it's past 9 pm and ugh.

bellLife's been pretty intense on many fronts lately. I can't even go into details, really, it just makes my head spin. I'm told that the work front is like this every end of the year (because of everyone tying the knots they ignored all year), but the rest of it is just all badly timed, lol.

^_^;;My hols is still not finished, and the intense life seems to have scheduled itself for at least another two weeks (and I dread that more scheduling is ahead of me).

rainSo I give up (just a little). I do loom around, but I can't keep up most of the time and there's no meaning in frantically scrambling to.

movieA little hiatus is in order. I should be back before Christmas. (I want to post pics from when Kari was here, damn it D:) I'm missing loads of fandom flail and there will be no point in talking about random life joys (very, very shady pubs and cards) when they are one month old, and I'm sorry about this, but I think there's no other way.

Advent's here. This is the part I like about it.

not red this year, LE GASP

heart1LOL Count on me to make a Hiatus post way too long to read. I might pop up on your journals to comment if my evening state of total blank exhaustion permits. See you around!!!

The lights
(stock) world

There's been waffles on sticks, fog, bridges, fog, Jewish cemeteries, fog . . . all you can eat sushi bar and green tea ice-cream floats. Tomorrow is in the stars. But we are spending a quality Friday evening with our legs up. There are no sappy romantic movies, so it could be worse ;D

*insert ringing tone of a telephone*
(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
I should be sleeping, but today we went for a bit of bowling right after work (all paid for :D) which turned into darts match which resulted in me coming home few minutes ago. I just washed my hair because I smelled like ashtray and there was no way for me to fall asleep like that.

Now I need to sit down for a second before I can attempt to dry my hair >.> So I really really really want to pimp this out. Help me out!

There's been a smaller experimental challenge running through, well basically, most of this year, when people remixed a fic "telephone game" style. One after another. The result of it (8 fics in total) were just posted.

I'm really looking forward to see how it turned out, especially knowing how I coped. But I also want more people to go and have a try . . .

so here:

Hello? Who's there?

Lame ad is lame. Go read, I'll join you on Friday evening. Talk to you later <3

loveletter I've started the full inbox project, so let's hope I have inspiration enough to write to 7 people for a week :D

footprint I might have parasol_odori next week. Excite!

! Today marks two finally:

pencil I finally posted the help_japan fic, and I am so, so, so happy. I can now move on and concentrate on hols. We'll see how that goes.

camera1 And I finally posted the pictures I mentioned some time ago. It's the collection from the time I took a walk up to the castle. Click on the picture bellow to see the rest. Any of them can be seen in the original size when you right click on them, idek maybe some of the ones with views could have been bigger.

cloverHave a nice week!

I can has fandom flail, lol. Who's surprised?
(darksecret) Sehun
I just felt like coming out of my hole for this.

Now excuse me while I go back to my corner thinking very, very dirty and inappropriate and cheesy thoughts.

Beta search, what's new?
(darksecret) Sehun
So I'm just going to beg here, since I failed at this project being a secret a long time ago.

The fic I mentioned yesterday is done. It's over 20 000 words, so it is a complete monster. I can't ever publish this without a proper beta, but yeah, I have no clue where to find one for such a long thing. Help? I'd offer a newborn, but I believe it's already taken by someone who beta read for me before. Just like most of my internal organs.

Help? If you know of anyone I could beg, that would help too.

(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
shockuIf you are wondering where I am these days, I'm still hiding in my corner where things are shiny, sparkly and magical and how they were a month ago (also where the NEWS - KAT-TUN rumor did not happen)

pencilI might also be struggling with my second help_japan fic that is currently around 16 000 words and still not done. This frustrates me because I didn't want to write such a monster. I feel a little bad for making anyone read that, especially the "recipient". Even more so because it touches so many things I usually avoid. Hello drama, where did you come from? Oh wait arrowup eyes

heart1Anyway what got me out of the whole is this meme.

PROJECT FULL INBOX: People love getting lots of emails, so let's use this week to fill up the inboxes of friends with random things to brighten their days! Comment here saying you want a FULL INBOX so I can begin plotting my attack, then put this in your journal so your friends can let you know that they want a full inbox from you. Whether it is a ton of random comments on entries, pointless PMs, or emails with questionable gifs attached, let's have a week of full inbox fun!

!!I will however move the week when the spamming from me happens to next week because this one is quite busy and it would be pointless to even try.

Let me touch you
(Dorama) Akira shock!
eyesSO . . . I've gone a bit away so to speak after I had a bit of a fight with real life, to put it metaphorically, last Friday. Or hormones, I'm still not sure. I stayed a bit away from about everything.

shockuJust as I was slowly coming back, NEWS happened. Well that's that. I always thought fandom was there to amuse me. Or not fandom, the boys are here to amuse me in one way or another. So I don't know why JE goes out of their way to screw over just about everything I like about it lately. You are not doing a good job at keeping me around, orz.

thumbsupAnyway, I am still a bit distanced, I would say, but I was pretty productive yesterday, and even if the result will always stay dubious, I am proud of myself just because I finished it.

movieAs a reward I went on a search for a certain .gif. I didn't find it, so I made it. I don't know how to make .gifs mind you. I had to install one more program and read like three tutorials, so it probably sucks but it makes me happy.

heartyeyesYeah, my favorite Zenkai Girl moment. And one of my favorite J drama moments ever too. Because TOUCHES *_____* I was going to write this whole thing on touches and why I like this one and why I like touches in fic too and stuff, but somehow, the need to talk about it is gone. So that's that.

NGI seriously hope I didn't spoiler anyone by now.

camera1Oh also, I had to look for some MatsuJun pics today and when did the guy get this pretty? I found some of his phases very (there I said it) charming but this . . . Also have Ueda Tatsuya picture-a-month mosaic from the year 2000 up till now-days (click the picture to make it bigger ;D ).

houseI'm home and am driving to Prague only on Tuesday evening so I won't be around even as much as I normally am. I just felt like letting you know ;D

Short is impossible by default
(darksecret) Sehun
watchI think this all is enough for a quick (mostly) fandom post

heartyeyesSo let's talk about how Ueda's hair finally matches his hunched, very macho and MALE posture. He tends to stand exactly like that, but call me an idiot, it looks sooooooooooo good like this. With every new (and more in color) picture, I like bouzu Pommu more and more. Not to mention, I really like it when an idol goes and does something that challenges his image and public perception of him up to that point. And yeah I can't stop looking. (See also: Nakamaru with rolled up sleeves and from that angle looks amazing).

melody2The PV for Kaze Wa Fuiteiru is out, and it is official, it's the second AKB48 song I really like (I don't really know any old stuff, but I heard everything after Beginner and some). Plus I like the darker setting of the PV. This is also probably the first time Itano Tomomi didn't bother me (I really do not like her face, sorry to anyone who does).

presentOh yeah, today I got my rocky_rudolph mod hat back on. My sister is still Internet-less (though she sends me MMS about toilets, bikes, sea horses and killing unicorns), so whenever she gets the sorted out assignments to me, I will have to send 46 emails. LOL my weekend is doomed. What with the evening get together turning more into like all day get together on Saturday and two fics to write before October 13 and other stuff.

moneybagIn real life news, I just paid my rent. It is sad how I always feel SO broke afterward. For half of the month, I am all, you are doing well, saving up, being all responsible, it is looking good. And then BAM! LE SIGH! I just needed to get that off my chest.

arrowupTomorrow is the last day of my 3-months probation period at work. My boss isn't even in the office due to some injury to lay me off from one day to another on last minute, so I am pretty sure I am staying in Prague for at least another 3 months until the end of my short term contract. Then I either become jobless right after Christmas, or I am in for a permanent one *____* Will gambarimasu for that magical formula of "for an indefinite period" to be added in.

Ruffling feathers - the results of the social experiment
(NEWS) Shige profile
eyesMy head’s been hurting so much all day, but I was so set to post that I just had to. If this makes next to no sense because of the headache, then I apologize.

glassesSo The Anti-friending meme. Ever since I first got the idea presented to me, all I could think of was ruffled feathers. I know it was one of the things that could do that. Ruffle feathers that is. I am sorry if it felt like too much, too negative and completely unnecessary, and I hope you forgive me my extravagant moment of hosting it anyway.

NGMy other concern with it was that it could turn to flat out hate meme. But people were pretty good with it, other than occasional efforts of trying too hard to make their point and failing at recognizing when it is better to stop. Then the meme got killed by a true hate meme (I has impeccable timing), so maybe that is a reason why people were rather civil too. Thank god for that because I almost did not sleep that night, afraid of letting it go unattended. In a way, this too is a conclusion, fandom can handle itself on occasions.

thumbsupThe whole thing was rather interesting. I’m sure I had more conclusions, but by now, the following three stuck in my mind, so here you go:pairings, coherence and connectivityCollapse )

heartyeyesAnyway, personal result of the meme. I suppose I have always known that being RyoDa fangirl means people are cautious of friending you. But lately I have had such a steady and nice friend list that I almost forgot. The meme reminded me that RyoDa fangirls are considered crazy and more thread than an asset to one's friends list. Therefor I now love you even more for giving me a try and tolerating my crazy. I know my mind can get very one-track sometimes when it comes to my OTP, but I hope I do not annoy you with it too much.

flowerAfter that very serious fandom analysis (LOL, fandom is serious business), have my Saturday night joy. I spent my Saturday at work, but took a walk on my way home and got myself something to liven up my kitchen. With the choice I made, it seems fall is really coming.

4leafcloverIt is a pretty fall though! The weather forecast for the next two weeks is sunny and still around 20 °C or only a little less so this is great *____________* I took a walk up to the castle today after work, so I need to sort and post those pictures sometimes. It was rather pretty.

planeAnd lastly, my sister, quarrions is safely in Japan, probably sleeping more than 24 hours of travel and official business away. I am relieved, she seemed to have handled it like a boss and now she has an amazing year ahead of her. (LOL she also sent her friends to my journal to find out if the plane did not crush and since she might not have the internet for a while, I figured I'd leave this public so that curious people not willing to wait 5 months before getting worried know she is fine and safe)

JE Anti-friending meme [READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!]
(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
{Why do you not want to be my friend?}

!?this is a reaction to people wondering why no one/certain people do not want to friend them on a friending meme
paperclipThis is a social experiment as much as it is a meme.
!!This is NOT a hate meme!

pencilFill out the form at the end of this entry like you would fill it out on a friending meme
shockuLet people tell you anonymously why they don’t want to be friends with you based on this filled out form

downarrowI do not want any personal hate or bashing, but there may be many other interesting reasons:
- maybe you don’t friend people who like Tegoshi (despite having many other things in common otherwise) because Tegoshi in big doses makes you dizzy
- maybe you want your friends list balanced, so you are friending only people who have wide range of interests
- maybe the .gif they posted seemed too forced, like they are trying too much
- it is okay that someone sounds e.g. intimidating based on the filled out form or that you want someone closer to your age
- it is not okay saying you heard someone is a bitch and they should get lost

lightbulbThis meme is about finding out what turns people off friending other specific people based on the impression created by a friending meme post

NGIf it turns into personal hate and bashing, I will have no qualms to delete this entry and conclude internet is not a place for such an experiment.

heart1But I hope you all would try to have an open mind and create as friendly of an atmosphere as possible for an anti-friending meme.

Here is the form to fill in:

(the form is identical as the one for the latest friending meme, and the idea of this was not really mine either, I am not that brilliant.)

4leafcloverPlay nice, if you think this is a good idea, help me spread the word!

edit: the hate meme for those who got lost ;D is now here

(darksecret) Sehun


LOL nothing else is relevant

Or well maybe.

camera1Meet element of fire. She was the best of them. Had a really great "insane" stare down and fascinated me a bit. Or a lot.

Also today, exactly a year ago, September 17th, I graduated from university. LOL 1 year anniversary of adult life, what? Clearly, right afterwards I was pretty out of it and couldn't type to safe my life. And later, I was full of impressions. So much has happened since (and changed). At least clearly, Ueda still can get the raise out of me. I don't remember capslocking like this in ever.

There's a friending meme going on, so hi new friends. I am sorry for jumping straight into a crazy. This might be the most of capslock you'll see from me . . . in next year or so <3!!cake

greeting like for a royalty
(Dorama) Akira shock!
I came back to my apartment, completely tired because of the journey to Prague and barely standing up.

The apartment is filthy. There is tons of unwashed dishes, my flatmate told me not to stress it and most of all, the kitchen is flooded from my owners attempt to install hot water in the kitchen sink.

He just wiped the floor under the stove with the cloth I wash the bathroom with. The bathroom I need to clean because I would not even step into such a filthy shower. It's 7 pm and I am so mad and so tired and so hungry, guys you have no idea.

So I just needed to rant otherwise I might verbally attack the flat owner again. Because he did construction work in my bathroom and did not clean it and flooded my kitchen. Then I would strangle my flatmates because they let my basil die, did not move a finger in the flat in a week and the trash can is gloriously smelly.

/grits teeth.

Maru-maru-mori-mori . . .
I linked this on Twitter, but I wanted a placeholder for it. I hope it stays up for a long time to make me giggle. I love this performance (and the failing backdancers) and if I didn't think the song is way too catchy before this, now I do. And I love the girl. From the cuts of Heyx3, it is pretty clear she is a complete star.

Maru-maru-mori-mori . . .

You know you want to!
(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
Today would be actually a good day to post about how things have been since I've moved whole 8 days ago, or just today because today felt like kind of an okay day but mha, I just don't feel like it. So instead ima pimp!

Double the trouble!

Devil or Angel.

Now posting!

So yeah. I hope people will find something they'll like over there. If you would help me spread the word, that would be great too. here is the handy box for the sparkly text only, not for the banner:

My own DOA experience this year has taken a few interesting turns and twists, and I am honestly really anxious about the result, but I regret nothing. There are some great moments in the fic (I think) and I learned a lot and tried a lot of stuff that I usually do not do at all when writing, so it has definitely been challenge in the right sense of the word. Now only to manage the rest of the mod duties that parasol_odori carries with me (awesomely) and life will be peachy.

Also no more exchanges for me until Hols, so I should FINALLY get on with my Help Japan fics. I am pretty sure it will still take a lots of time because work is really intense, but I will get there!

Have a nice weekend people!

The big bang (or move if you have it)
(Eighto) Yoko
I last posted 20 days ago. Scary! Anyway there has been very little people reacting to my posts lately. While I try to not let it get to me, especially when I rumble about my private life, when I flail about fandom and nothing happens, it kind of saddens me. I need people to flail with. Anyway, the point is. If you do not read my entries and skip over them, do us both a favour and defriend me. Thank you very much.

Now that the bitching part is over, I have been all over the place in those 20 days. There has been plenty I wanted to post about, but then some things happened that made me draw back a little. I apologize for not commenting on your posts guys, I have seen several picture posts and such *____* so just know that I'll try to get back on track again.

Anyway, bullet points :
* I've gone to see fireworks; and have been on a boat trip and to a castle; basically I'm saying good bye to Brno, and it is sinking in that I am leaving. I admit, it is scary, but such is life.

* There has been my PC giving me blue screen and all kinds of messed up messages so I have it reinstalled and lost all my bookmarks ;____; I also lost that set of cute Japanese emot-icons. If someone still remembers how to install them, I'll be the happiest kid on the block.

* Most importantly, I have packed my stuff here and moved most of it to Prague this weekend (forgot the camera at home, which is why pictures to follow are kind of sucky):

<3 My parents picked me and my stuff up in Brno on Saturday, and on our way to Prague we stopped to eat in some village off highway. They had a tree that is 500 - 600 years old.
See under the cut!Collapse )

O.O We arrived to Prague and proceeded to get stuck in a NEW elevator in my apartment building with the mother of the owner of that apartment who panicked, turned red and started to talk about forgetting her medication for high blood pressure. It took 45 minutes to get us out of there. Click the cut for picture of "my" calming medication:
baileyyyysCollapse )

D: I found my new room not ready and the apartment in a mess (my new roommates did not leave me any space in the fridge or the bathroom and did not bother even washing the dishes before they left for the weekend). So no pictures yet and our first talk will be an interesting one.

Then we proceeded to wander around Prague and eat and have coffee and all around good time. My parents snuck me into their hotel room so I stayed there for the night, which was a great thing given the state of my room.
Pics taken on Charles bridge under the cutCollapse )

:D today we dropped the rest of the bags off - thankfully the elevator worked already - and left Prague because it was raining there.
Under the cut are two more random picturesCollapse )

Anyway in the very little fandom news:
!!! DOA deadline is approaching and I am trying not to panic over not hearing anything from most of the teams.
I had a historic ryoda fic written for me
??? today I came back to concrit meme, so here's my thread, please don't be gentle.

That is all. I am off to find a place where they'll fix my bike in Brno and then collapse because I am soooo tired. I am leaving Brno for good this Thursday and I hope the rest of the move will go smoothly. Talk to you from Prague <3

The original purpose of this journal's existence
(Arashi) Jun classy
I’ve been piling up fandom stuff I wanted to flail or just talk about, and now it is all old news and there might be too much.

lovely I really like Kinki Kid’s Time. I am not sure why because it sounds a bit "electro" to me, but I guess it has something with all the instrumental in the background.

moviecamera KAT-TUN's 156th CM song is making me cringe because there’s tons of auto-tune, but I love the running in the CM itself. Like any other fangirl I supposed. There have been .gifs of Nakamaru and Ueda that made me go *___*, but now they are gone ;__; If you have them, please please link me?

shirtWhite shirt is what makes man look great. AnAn knows this. That I like this picture of Ryo is not that surprising. That I like Kame in this one is more of a shock. Turtle-chan also scared me to death recently because I was subjected to a .gif of him rolling up his sleeves (wearing trousers and tucked in WHITE shirt) and I found him HOT. I should probably be thankful for the loss of that .gif.

pencilI love this interview. Ueda is on a fan service strike clearly. The mentions of Nakamaru and Kanjani8 are great. Not to mention him saying K8 was fun made me think he had loads of fun ogling Ryo’s ass during Marching J. I have linked that picture before, but I can do it again ;D.

penI was going to pimp the possibility of mini-reel that is now a reality. Claim post is this way. I fail, lol.

cakeOh and then there is loads of Junba. There is this amazing bar shoot and then there are VS Arashi "kissing" caps and WHOA Jun looks great, Aiba is as gorgeous as ever and they are the biggest teases ever.

watchI had more, but the second post it got lost. But I went on tumblr again, so this is the newest addition to my Subaru/Ryo obsession, here goes KAT-TUN garden party I want to join for the pretty and there is Nakamaru working his lips?

shocku I am sorry, I am not crediting, but I mostly have no idea who. People link pictures, I try to track them down when I can save them, it's all a huge mess >.>

japaneseteaI am out. I leave you with an office rule number one:
To make your instant coffee, you deserve a fresh dose of water that has not boiled three times already in the old water kettle.

eyesIn real life, I had pictures to share but then I realized that would require somehow addressing this weekend and I just want to forget it. So I’ll just say there was cake.

this one I just found so credit to onigishi@tumblr

The conspirational theories about the mother of one Jin Akanishi
(darksecret) Sehun
lightbulbSo I . . .
- went to Prague
- saw 8 apartments - had a crazy Saturday in which I got to know what feels like all metro stations and many tram/bus stations of Prague and probably did like 50 km travelling around it
- found a flat and basically persuaded the guy that I am the one he wants to rent that room to
- mostly did it because one more day like that would kill me and the flat was mostly acceptable
- signed the contract today and gave my landlord “legal” advice on how to properly get around the law with less of a chance to get caught by tax control
- got home, did my hair, nails, laundry . . .

cherryblossomNails are inappropriate for my job but. I got the nail polish from my sister for my birthday because she thinks my nail polish collection is boring. We are holding the job interviews for my successor this week at work, and I hate how it is going to go down bla bla basically this is me revolting. My nail polish is to tell the applicants to relax; it is not all as bonkers as it seems. Yeah the logic behind that.

sleepyI really, really need a good night sleep tonight. Oh there was supposed to be a mention of red library, historic, dirty and really hilarious novel in Czech somewhere in here.

camera1A few pictures from Prague is over at sanslunettes. I have not been able to listen to all those voice posts that emerged, the plan is one every evening over the course of this week . . .

Spinning and turning and being twisted
(NEWS) Tegomass
I got invited for ice cream they sell by out court building during my lunch break. Then there was a ride down the memory line.

There is so much to be said >.>

Anyway, dear Pix, once again happy birthday!

Dear Amy, Pix and Vix, I can't believe it's been a year since we had some ice cream like this together. I really enjoyed the time I have spent with you back then. ♥ I am happy to be able to continue being friends with all of you. I hope we'll get to share some awesome ice cream together again some day.

Dear friends list, please excuse my mushy. If you want to see a pic of something from my surroundings, I am still taking requests over here ;D.

Make it happen
(darksecret) Sehun
eyesLast week was crazy. I am scared as hell of my new job, but at the same time it is really exciting and I can’t wait to start. I have no clue about producing and distributing juices and the VAT legislation and intellectual property (and claims about juice boxes designs) and marketing strategies and the structure of the company and how on Earth am I going to manage four of them at the same time . . . yeah overwhelmed much?

hourglassThe point is - July 1st is way too far away. I now have a really hard time coming back to my current work. So hard to motivate myself. I went all, “look it is middle of May already, you’ll be fine.” Then I counted and realized I still have 6 weeks and 4 days left. Ah gambare, gambare . . .

winkI think I wanted to talk about last week some more, but the twitter explosion just now killed my brain. So you are spared, lol.

movieBut I do have drama/movie updates.

moviecameraI started watching Moteki and am forever amused.

heart1I also watched Hanamizuki (probably am late to that Toma train) and Finding Mr. Destiny.

thumbsupI guess I liked both. Plus somewhere halfway through Hanamizuki I realized what an interesting mirror Finding Mr. Destiny is to Hanamizuki, in a way. Despite being much more on the romantic comedy side and all. About that, I actually really recommend Finding Mr. Destiny as a chick flick. There is basically no shouting (so typical for Koreans) and I loved the camera of it? Or the way the flashbacks were done I guess? I keep wondering if it would be possible to write like that. Probably not. Yeah I clearly needed to turn off after a crazy week because I haven’t watched that many movies and drama in ages. So I’m now terribly behind on fandom front (All I know is that I am looping Namie Amuro's Checkmate! for whatever reasons, really like Silence and Yuuki no hana makes me depressed). Or more so than usual?

lightbulbAnyway I’ve been thinking. I have a couple of relatively new people on my friends list plus I am moving out of m beloved Brno (and this not so beloved but still liveable flat) in like a month. So I thought I would try an interactive picture meme that I’ve seen quite some time ago. Only I do not remember how exactly it went. So my improvised version:

!!Tell me in comments what from my life you want to see and I will take a picture of it for you and post it to my journal. Almost anything goes, from the inside of my purse to my kitchen appliances, to my surrounding, city parts, my hideout, I can sneak a pic of my desk in the morning if you haven’t seen it yet. I can’t think of many things I would refuse to take a picture of (and you’d probably not be interested in what is underneath my skirt anyway, so . . . )

!?So how curious are you? If you ask for a picture, you can also ask me a question, something you wanted to know and hadn’t find an opportunity to ask or something you feel like you might be missing out on when I post, whatever ;D

busAnd I’m going home this weekend, so I can show you pieces of my “home home” in Trnava not only of my Brno living space if you wish for it.

So who wants to play?

The bruise on my arm reminds me of you
(stock) teddy on the beach

I think the point of that picture was the sickeningly blaring pink (not going well with the serious image my work place is trying to go for). Clearly I need to get my camera functioning again because the phone pictures suck.

I think I also got a ride home for this Friday. It's good my friends are not as forgetful as I am.

And I just realized how wrong the title can be read. It has nothing with DV though. Not at all.

Brooding Boys
(Kinki) Domoto
There is 15!!!! teams signed-up for je_devilorangel. This is not why I am posting, but I figured I'd share some joy. Now only if I could start writing for it. It is planned for the weekend.

I hope I will manage to actually do some writing instead of rewatching Beach Boys, all because Rin posted the opening (that you need to watch!!!) and made me want to. Really. I so do not need to stare at pretty 90's styled boys in tinted sunglasses searching for oceans right now ;__; By which I mean to say, someone else needs to get hooked!

!!Now the real reason I am posting. I finished my RyoDa Fic List of Doom. If you are craving a RyoDa fic, it is probably waiting for you to find it on that list. Head this way because it is posted out of order, but I though some of you on my flist might silently appreciate its existence <3

Tomorrow is FRIDAY! All of you, I hope you have a good one!

Play with me!
(Arashi) Jun číro
eyesI think I actually had a post planned for tonight, but now I don't remember what it was about.

!!Sign ups for je_devilorangel close tonight if you are still wavering ;D The turn out so far is great.

kiddingI remembered one thing! I have new friends *____* welcome! There's an intro post though you probably already knew that if you wanted to know. To the future wine!

NGIn flash news, the company I interviewed with this week didn't let me know yet, and it may mean they have chosen someone else and won't even let me know. All in all, given how big of a rush they've been in, it is very likely that I am out, so that is what I am expecting if they DO let me know.

moneybagI spent most of today shopping or more like getting myself to the mall and back from it. The ride was actually beautiful and the bus took a road I've never took before. I didn't even mind it was a 40 minutes long ride with a stop on every corner. At the mall, I gave myself a headache in the second clothes store and I have not found shoes yet again. But I have one new shirt and new jeans since the old ones fell apart. I don't wear jeans that often anymore, given I don't wear casual stuff like that to work, but yeah they were needed. The tax refund came at the right time.

cakeI've been mostly bumming around since I came home, and I don't plan on doing much else than finishing Arashi Scene concert today. (I know I am an awful fan for taking this long to watch, but it is long and shiny and distracting so I can't watch it and do something else at the same time. BUT what I saw yesterday is AWESOME, and I do not get why I was on such an arashi diet up till now.) And so I am snatching a meme from ryogrande that looks fun and less lethal than asking for quick drabble prompts, an idea that crossed my mind briefly. (I have fics to write, you guys, I know, I am so glad this came around)

Give me a character from any fandom I know at least fairly well, and I will tell you:

B) The runner up
C) The anti-ship
D) My unpopular/fannish opinion on said character
E) One person he/she never fell in love with, and why.

heart1Let's have some fun!

riceOh, I'm making curry rice tomorrow, but I don't have the instant curry cubes, so technically I am making t from the scratch. I have a curry paste and I have the curry spice (and have yet to decide how exactly I am doing this), so if you have an advice for me, I will gladly read some ;D

Movin movin
(darksecret) Sehun
LOL so talking about the castle from two weeks ago is so last week, literally that is seems i never will. Oh well I’ll tell you about naked medieval bottoms and clever Czechs some other time.

Anyway I am posting to say some things. First, I saw a picture of onigiri this week, felt like eating some and randomly typed into my sister’s IM box “Come make me onigiri,” and she seriously did. From another city, this weekend. heart1heart1heart1She came bearing miso and wakame and we got tofu and found umeboshi paste and suddenly there was also a bit of sushi and what ended up being food orgy. I finished the miso soup today, and I’m having onogiri for lunch tomorrow :DDD

We ended up just bumping around and skyping with Rin and it was fun <3 They might have plotted out my FQF for me too, those two. ROFL.

In fandom news, fic_the_faith is done posting! Reading people’s reactions to fics, it seems that it’s been a great year. I am sending you to read what you haven’t. I myself am stuck on day three I think ;__; but I will get there, damn it!

Anyway, thank you to anyone who had to deal with my modly crankiness and insecurity. Guys, I had 3 fics in on March 15th (which was the second deadline already), so how the hell it happened that we did not need a pinch hit is beyond me, but I call that DAISEEEEKOOOO (yes that is stupid fangirl Japanese , sue me).

Because we barely just finished one exchange and tons of others are running, it is time for

Devil or Angel.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.

GO SIGN UP ... on April 1st when the sign ups open. Really, there is no pairing, rating, group or universe limitation, it’s just you, your partner and vast possibilities AND the twist that is incorporating a color into the fic. We dropped the themes, but we wanted to give you at least something extra to make it interesting. Details are in the intro post, so grab someone and write something you would never write alone.

I kind of wanted this photo to end this post, so. My sister painted her nails while she was here, with the same nail polish as me. We were originally going to document that fact, but because I am cheesy and she was spamming me Kpop, this is how it ended up. At least you can see our thumbs?

Guess which hand is mine;D You can also try and guess which fic I wrote for fic_the_faith. Rin would probably say it is obvious just from the header itself >.>

And now I am really going to go be productive.

I'm overworked and Ryo is hormonal (or I have questions and I would love to know your opinion)
(Arashi) Do it! Do it!
So, my fic_the_faith fic is AMAZING! It's Maruda, an established one at that. Has some aweosme stuff, some really hilarious stuff, some breath taking stuff and some really really hot stuff. I like together fics but I love established equally as much, damn it, because that dynamic different and leaves me feeling really comfortable. So this was a very nice bonus. LOL this might be as long as my comment on it, and I fully intent to redeem that this weekend, but I needed to get it out again. I flailed just thinking about the fic today in the bus on my way to work. I was going to say I must have gotten really lucky with who wrote for me this year then I remembered I was there when matching people up. LOL. Good job me. (okay this might have sounded weird.)

I almost forgot to link the fic, so it is here

Anyway I've read a couple of fics posted so far just now and they are all amazing, so I am really happy. BUT it got me thinking. I want your opinion. Do you think 4 fics a day, 5 days of posting is a good solution? As in do you think maybe the posting should go slower?

I'm asking because this being a one group exchange, maybe I should reconsider the system for the future. I know people all like different stuff, so they may pick and chose, but I usually make exceptions for exchanges and venture even into pairings I would not read otherwise. Also people in this exchange have been amazing in mostly including the rest of the group so that is A LOT of KAT-TUN in quite intense doses. Not to mention there is several fics going well over 10k.

I know people get anxious about their fic, want the fics for them and things may feel like dragging if posting goes for too long, but maybe idek 6 or 7 days for 20 fics would be better. 3 fics a day? Would it make a difference? Would you read more, feel less overwhelmed if that happened. Tell me in comments. I would really appreciate it.

For the lazy people I have a poll.

Poll #1722110 Spread it out

What do you read in an exchange

my fic
fics with parings/characters I like only
I tend to be curious and read even things I would normally not read
none of the above

How many fics related to one group (that you like) do you think you can stomach in one day

no more than three
no more than five
as many as I have time for

Just humor me here, how do you like the exchange posting?

It should be quick and dirty, five days max.
I think it is nice to take a breather so at least a week.
I don't care
I have a complex opinion that take things like number of participants, nature of exchange and season fo the year into account (and I might tell you in a comment)
