Contrary to the banner, this journal is not friends only. Rather, it is semi-friends only for the reason that I like people to comment before they friend me. Why? Because I don't feel comfortable with complete strangers friending me. It's as simple as that. I don't expect anything fancy and I don't bite- just drop me a comment stating who you are and why you'd like to friend me, and, chances are, I'll friend you back. Fandoms in common help a lot, too. However, if you don't comment on this post, I won't friend you back, simple as that.

I do have a few rules for friending:
☆ I don't friend journals that are linked to twitter/facebook/other social media (so that the majority of the posts are, for example, a conglomeration of tweets)
☆ I don't friend journals that are mostly sales journals.
☆ I don't friend journals that regularly post large images without using an LJ cut.
If your journal contains any of these things, please feel free to friend me regardless; all of my fic, icons, translations, reports, meta, and other fanworks will always be unlocked. I reserve the right to unfriend any journals that begin doing these things after we're friends. It's also simply my policy to unfriend any accounts who unfriend me for whatever reason.

In the case that you happen to stumble across this journal and are considering friending, here's just a bit about me to help you out, a bit more in-depth than my userinfo.

I also have some rules for conduct within my journal:
☆ This is a safe space. Please refrain from language that is derisive or discriminatory.
☆ I understand that slang is different in all countries and cultures, but please try to remember that something that might not be offensive to you may be offensive to someone else. In particular, I know that the word "Jap" is not considered a racial slur used to refer to someone of Japanese heritage in some countries, but being American (and living in Japan knowing Japanese people who find it very offensive), I ask that you don't use it in the comments on my journal.
☆ Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I respect the opinions of everyone who comments on my blog. I try my hardest to engage with all commenters in a polite and respectful manner. That being said, please respect my opinion and, in the long run, understand that this is my blog and I will post in accordance with what I feel and believe. If you're offended by it, please simply don't read it.
I reserve the right to delete any comments that I feel violate these rules.

That all being said, if you still wish to be friends, please, comment away! ♡

Or, if what you're interested in is my writing:

If anything I write makes you feel uncomfortable, please let me know in any way you feel comfortable (pm, comment) and I'll do whatever I can to rectify the situation. I do my best to warn for any possible triggers in my works, but sometimes, I make mistakes. I want my journal to be a safe space for everyone.

I'm back from Silver Week! Well, technically I got back yesterday, but I was so beat (and so busy watching the Music Station 10 hour special) that I didn't get around to much of anything. I had a really great time in Tokyo with my friends; we saw Shounen-tachi again, and ate a lot of delicious food, and generally had a good time. The only low point was when we tried to go to Harajuku and ended up being there at the same time a some sort of Kansai Jr. filming and nearly got trampled to death on Takeshita Doori; on top of that, the paparazzi shops were totally packed in a way I've never seen before and it was crazy. We didn't even try the shop… I guess we'll have to go back later.

And now I have a two day work week (woo!) and I'm totally perplexed that it's not Monday. XD As were all my students, and… well, everyone. I spent all yesterday thinking that it was Sunday, too. |D;

At any rate, happy anniversary to JUMP, and happy joining the agency anniversary as of yesterday to Yabu and Inoo ♥ Here's to this year being another good year!

Whew! Made it through this week, which means it's time for Silver Week! Since Japanese national holidays don't align the same every year (like many countries' holidays XD), this is my first time really having a Silver Week! I'm going to Tokyo for 4 days, then taking the last day to relax and watch the Music Station special~ And tomorrow I'm seeing Shounen-tachi again, so that will hopefully be fun!

I'm also taking my computer in to the shop tomorrow, which I'm pretty stressed about. I don't know what's wrong now, except that it won't connect to pretty much any wifi connection except tethering to my phone, which is, obviously, a huge pain. I'm not sure why I'm cursed when it comes to computers, but I'm pretty fed up with the situation. I may end up having to get a new computer sooner rather than later.

At any rate, by and large, this weekend is hopefully going to be fun and relaxing! I won't be around much until the 23rd, but if you comment or send me a message I should see it at some point over the holiday. ^^

Squeezing in one last fic before I go away for Silver Week! Back to Americaverse, oops, but I hope it's enjoyable anyway!

title: Earnest Proposals
rating: pg
pairing: Yuto/Keito, background Hikaru/Inoo and Takaki/Yabu
warnings: A lot of drinking and people doing silly things while intoxicated are involved in this fic; if that might be upsetting to you, please read with caution!
word count: 1,130
beta: yomimashou
author's note: It's been a while, but this is yet another Americaverse fic! This time, it's set a bit in the future. Originally written for shiritori @ writetomyheart !
summary: "Our wedding will be beautiful," Yuto sighs blearily as he leans further into Keito's side, his seventh glass of champagne tilting dangerously between his fingers.

Previous Americaverse fics: Ready (Hikaru/Inoo), The Start of Something New (Takaki/Yabu), Engaged (Takaki/Yabu), あけまして (Yamada/Chinen), Lucky (Yuto//Keito), Prism (Yamada/Chinen), Wake up and smell the coffee (Yuto/Keito)

Keito isn"t exactly sober, either…Collapse )

I saw this the other day, and I was excited that the JUMP fanclub had grown since I last saw a listing like this in June. This isn't really something that needs translating, but for ease of looking at the information, I'll throw a quick translation here anyway:

Most Recent Ranking as of September 2015

1. Arashi (1,794,000 members)
2. SMAP (995,000 members)
3. KinKi Kids (490,000 members)
4. Kanjani 8 (440,000 members)
5. Kis-My-Ft2 (320,000 members)
6. V6 (261,000 members)
7. Hey! Say! JUMP (230,000 members)
8. NEWS (157,000 members)
9. KAT-TUN (156,000 members)
10. Tackey & Tsubasa (120,000 members)
11. TOKIO (109,000 members)
12. Sexy Zone (107,000 members)
13. Yamashita Tomohisa (73,000 members)

I forget exactly the numbers I saw in June, but I think JUMP gained maybe 20,000 members since then or something, so I'm really happy about that ♥

I'm not sure how they get these numbers. My best guess is that they're from the most recent people to join the club at any given time. There were a number of groups with no change since June (SMAP, KAT-TUN, Sexy Zone, YamaPi, if I recall…), so I'm not sure the significance, but I presume that there'd be no way to know if people quit the fanclub if this is just gleaned from the numbers new members are receiving… but I'm really not sure. At any rate, I'm happy for JUMP!

Wow. Due to my computer issues, this turns out to be the first time for me posting icons in a long time! Almost a whole year, actually. This isn't much, but I'm happy with the way they turned out. The Inoo ones are a bit rough because they're from paparazzi photos, but in general, I'm happy with this batch!

And please remember:
☼ Please credit in your icon comments!
☁ While not necessary, I'd love it if you commented when you took or used an icon I made.
☂ No editing or altering for any reason! Textless icons are not bases.

Well, I did basically nothing productive today, partly because I'm lazy, but partly because my internet is giving me shit ><; I'm not sure if it got messed up in the typhoon or if the issues is my computer or what, but I can't call until Monday, so I'll just have to struggle through for now. At times, it works almost normally, and at times it refuses to connect at all, so I have no idea what the issue is. Sigh.

I made icons for the first time in a long time on Thursday, but I don't think I can upload them until I get my internet fixed x__x; But I'm looking forward to posting them when I do get a good connection! I changed my default icon and I'm pretty much in love with it, ahaha. I hope photoshop continues to not make my computer crash ;;

Tomorrow, I need to pick my outfits for silver week, but for now… more relaxing! What else are weekends in for, am I right?

It's been approximately 589302 years (or, more accurately, a little more than 2 months) since I saw Arashi no Waku Waku Gakkou, but since I traveled to America right afterwards, and then got really busy, I didn't get around to working on a report until now… I'm sorry T___T; I've seen a few reports around, but none of them for this particular show, so I figured it was still worthwhile to write one. I'm going to focus on JUMP because… I was focusing on JUMP at the time XD but of course, Arashi is involved, too. In fact, it was really great seeing the amount of inter-group interaction there was, so it's definitely not that I'm going to leave Arashi out in this report.

Arashi no Waku Waku Gakkou, 2015.6.28Collapse )

I'm sorry again that this is so late! But hopefully it's still amusing even now, two and a half months later. T___T; I'm going to try to catch up on things from now on!

And here's the second fic! I'm actually really quite pleased with this one. I haven't even read a Johnny's ABO fic before, but I enjoy the genre and I wanted to try my hand at it. I hope it's as enjoyable to read as it was for me to write!

title: 恋してタイトいいんじゃない? (Koi shite taito iin ja nai?)
rating: nc-17
pairing: Yaotome Hikaru/Inoo Kei
warnings: ABO-verse (biological imperative, knotting, problematic societal views going along with A/B/O dynamics, mentions of m-preg), unsafe sex, talk of birth control. If any of this seems upsetting to you, please read with discretion.
word count: 5,718
beta: yomimashou , with special thanks to my ABO consultant 9kinds
author's note: This is my first time writing ABO-verse, so I hope that it's acceptable! The title is lyrics from NEWS' Koi no ABO (see what I did there?), and they're a pun-- they can mean both "Isn't it fine to have a difficult love?" and "Isn't it okay to want to love?" Set during the 2013 tour. Written for je_fqfest !
summary: Inoo has been taking pills every day for as long as he can remember.

No one in Johnny"s is allowed to reveal his type publicly under any circumstance, no matter if he"s an alpha, a beta, or an omega.Collapse )

je_fqfest reveals occurred, so now I can repost my fics here! I'm proud that I was able to write two fics this year, even though this one was… sort of odd. I hope it's still enjoyable |D;;

title: wretched
rating: nc-17
pairings: Nakajima Yuto/Chinen Yuri; former Yamada Ryosuke/Chinen Yuri; Nakajima Yuto/Okamoto Keito
warnings: Infidelity, voyeurism, and a lot of unhealthy thought processes and self-deprecation play a large part in this; please read with discretion.
word count: 3,770
beta: yomimashou
author's note: Written for je_fqfest ! Set in July of 2012, during the Japan leg of JUMP's Asia Tour. I don't really know what I had in mind when I claimed this prompt, but somehow, it turned into something really odd and angst-ridden. I apologize for the dark mood!
summary: After all, a sick part of his mind thinks, Yamada can't have Chinen anymore, and isn't this better than nothing?

Yamada wishes he could be anywhere but here right now.Collapse )

So today, I happened to stumble on something exciting. I don't often check Johnny's Net since I get fanclub emails and stuff; I usually end up there only to see when jackets have gone up, and stuff like that. But for some reason, I ended up checking today, and found that JUMP has a new profile image (here!) And Ino-chan is in the front row. Ino-chan is in the front row.


Okay, maybe I'm a little too excited about that, but it's kind of a big deal! I still can't get over how many solo lines he had on JUMPing CAR, too. Ugh, I'm so happy. I hope this continues! ♥

In less fortunate news, there's a typhoon that's supposed to hit tomorrow, and the amount of rain forecast for the morning is insane. I asked a coworker to give me a ride to work, so hopefully I can get there dry. The weather has been really gross for like 2+ weeks now, and I want the rain to end T__T; Damn typhoons.

First and foremost, NEW JUMP SINGLE!!! I was so excited when I saw the announcement. Rumour has it that it's going to be for a face wash commercial? But whatever it's for, I'm really excited and happy. ♥

But in terms of my life, this weekend was a lot of fun! Shounentachi was really good, and I enjoyed it a lot for a lot of reasons. The SixTONES guys were amazing; they clearly worked hard, and while, to my dancer's eyes, it was clear they weren't on the same level as Snow Man, I think they basically held their own. They were super cute and totally put their hearts into the show, and you could tell. I don't want to spoil anything here (I'll write a report after I see it for the second time), but Yugo and Jesse were seriously adorable. Hokuto was super super cute, too, and they were all really amazing. Also, new song!!! It was really amazing to see them in their own costumes made for them singing their own song made for them… ;____; Three years ago, when I first saw them live in concert in Bakaleya Summary, I never would have believed something like this would happen. They've come so far and I'm so proud of them!

Our tickets for this show (row E) were, as it turns out, the 8th row, because I didn't realize that the first three rows were XA, XB, and XC, and they were also all the way off to one side, but I was right next to the door to the hall, so I got to see some of the guys really close when they came in the door. We were also still really close to the stage and able to see the guys acting really, really well, so it was a great experience. The tickets I hit for, though, during Silver Week, are for row C, and also in the center section, and right on an aisle that a lot of the guys go down during various parts of the show, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what that's like!

For now, though, I have two weeks of downtime to catch up on everything that I let slide during the craziness that was the beginning of the term and the English Speech Contest. I'm really sorry if I haven't responded to people's messages and comments yet, I promise I'm getting there!!

I've been really busy lately and haven't had any time to write something proper for shiritori @__@ but at least I got this done. I hope it's enjoyable despite being short!

title: coīre

author's note: Recently I've been too busy to write anything very substantial for shiritori. @__@; Just another short drabble, this time with the lovely yomimashou in mind. Thanks for being a great beta! The title is Latin meaning "to come together," (according to the internet; it's been a long time since I studied Latin in high school OTL) and of course is the root of the word "coitus." Written, obviously, for writetomyheart
summary: At the very least, he can say it at times like these, when it feels like there's nothing else in the world besides the two of them.

Something that is made easier by their state of post-coital bliss is expressing themselves in a way that"s practically impossible in the presence of others.Collapse )

I need to get to bed, and don't have time for a long post, but I have a few drive-by things to say:

I found out today from the landlord that she's planning to take the cat to get fixed! I'd been worrying about her getting attacked by boy kitties (and I've also been worrying about her ongoing eye issues that seem like conjunctivitis), so I asked the landlord, and she said she was already planning to take the cat to the vet. I'm so happy that my landlord is such a conscientious cat person! Even to the stray cats that she doesn't actually own. ;___; So nice.

Also, the speech contest is tomorrow and I'm crazy nervous ;; Wish me luck!

On August 18th I got up ass early to head into Nagoya for the two days of the JUMP concert! Nagoya is pretty far from where I live (or rather… because I live in the middle of nowhere, I have to take a really indirect route because my train options are limited) so it took me more than four hours to get there, but it was so worth it!

It was a really fun concert, even if the guys were clearly really tired from all their 24 Hour TV promotions. I'm glad that I got to see it twice! I'll try to get my report from the 19th up soon!

summary: After a long day starting with appearing on Zip! to promote 24 Hour TV practically at dawn and ending with a dinner with all of the staff and crew after their first concert in Nagoya, Inoo had expected to fall asleep the moment his head hit the pillow, but for some reason, he felt wide awake laying beside Hikaru in their hotel bed.

Whew! I feel like I did nothing this weekend besides watch 24 hour TV |D; Which is pretty much accurate… |D; But I'm glad I watched as much as I could. The guys worked so hard and were so tired by the end, but they did a really great job. ♥ I'm really glad that I got to see Inochan's segment where he built things for a library for kids in Tohoku. It was really wonderful to get to see him use his degree and be so clever and confident and perfect ♥ I did sleep for a while, so I missed a few segments that I still need to check out, but all in all I enjoyed it. Their singing might have been crazy bad and flat XD; but they worked really hard and I'm really proud of them.

Whew. This has been a really long week. Going to Nagoya was so much fun, but man was it hard to get back into the swing of things once I got back XD Having mini-orientations for the new ALTs has been really tiring, and I don't have any energy left by the end of the day. On the bright side, today my guy friend came over to watch more JUMP videos, and he seemed to continue to love Chinen, so that's good XD;;

I'm really sorry all my entries have been so sort and crappy recently; I do actually have real content to post, but because I'm so tired by the end of the day, it doesn't end up posted. But I have various photos I want to post, and I'm going to get done my reports one day, I promise, so just bear with me? I'm sorry I'm such a boring person.

On the bright side of small things I've managed, I updated my list of events with report links here, and I've gone to 57 concerts and events so far! Wow! I'm looking forward to adding Shounentachi in September and the last 3 shows of JUMPing CARnival in October!
