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 Tokyo! I had a great time celebrating my birthday (which is on December 2-- same as Hikaru!-- but I'm busy next weekend) with my friends, and we had fun shopping for makeup, clothes, and Johnny's shop photos, as well as playing Pokemon Go, eating, and just hanging out. Also, I got some awesome gifts from my friends! I'm really happy with everything, but the most relevant thing to my LJ is that one of my wonderful friends found a copy of the Karafuto Ojisan script! Which means that (hopefully) I'll be able to share it here. So please look forward to that!

I got back pretty late though, so for now I'm going to crash. This week is going to be pretty long, alas, but only 3 more weeks until winter break?

Well, I felt kind of gross yesterday, but today, I woke up with a 40º C fever. I really hope it's not influenza, but I feel like it's likely, so I'm probably going to end up at the hospital tomorrow. Yuck. I've had a cough since Friday and I can't sleep well from the coughing, so I'm trying to take it easy now.

I'm sorry if I'm not super responsive here; I'm trying to get some rest and get better. Thanks for being understanding. ♥

Today yomimashou came over and we finally got through the backlog of magazines that I had to be cut! 100% of the non-idol magazines (fashion, movie, TV, etc) magazines that I had bought for JUMP or Inoo are cut now! I'm amazed; it seemed like it was never going to get finished XD; I had built up Inoo magazines... since Karafuto Ojisan?? At first, he didn't have that many magazines, so it didn't really matter if I kept the whole magazine or not, but around early 2015, it really started to pick up, and my house was a magazine disaster. I now have 6 wide binders and 5 letter sized (A4) binders of Inoo magazine pages, 5 wide binders and 6 A4 binders of JUMP or other JUMP members magazine pages, 1 wide binder and 2 A4 binders of NEWS/Shige magazine pages, 2 A4 binders of other Johnny's magazine pages, and 2 wide binders of Inoo and Daiki's "with" corner pages. I'm pretty happy about this!

In other news, I'm trying to sort through and get rid of the majority of my old issues of the 5 regular monthly idol magazines. I'm going to either sell them to Book Off or an idol goods store, but if you have a back issue of Myojo, Popolo, Duet, Winkup, or Potato between September 2012 and September 2016, please let me know! Up until then, I got two or three of the five choices each month, so there's a slightly greater than 50% chance that I'll have it! I'm happy to send it to anyone here for just the cost of shipping, so if you're interested in any almost-free magazines, please do let me know.

I think I'm coming down with something. @__@; I can't stop coughing. Time to drink one last cup of tea and head to bed!

In a continued effort to keep things light and fun, here's a little comedic something that yomimashou and I somehow came up with the other day. XD; It's not meant to be taken seriously, but I hope it's enjoyable!


title: Settle Down
rating: pg
pairing: Yaotome Hikaru x Inoo Kei
warnings: This is a comedy fic, so many of the characters are rather characterized and behave in ridiculous ways. If that’s not your cup of tea, please read with caution!
word count: 1,947
beta: yomimashou
author’s note: Sometimes, yomimashou and I end up talking about ridiculous scenarios like this, and on occasion, they become fic. XD; This is totally off the wall… my apologies. |D; It also is somewhat based on headcanons that I have that made it into fic here and here.
summary: It’s been about five months since Hikaru’s uncharacteristically romantic proposal on an international radio broadcast and the subsequent explosion of rumors and talk around the agency when Koyama-kun ambushes Inoo in the hall on his way to rehearsal.

Things had been crazy at first.Collapse )

I'm headed out of town after work today (heading to Nagoya!), so I won't be able to respond to messages or reply comments until at least Sunday! I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

I'm stressed out about getting to the train station after work and packing and all that, but I'm super excited for Nagoya! Miso katsu and chicken wings all the way. XD; I like seeing shows in Nagoya because Nippon Gaishi is small and intimate-feeling, but I feel like the thing I look forward to the most is the food. |D;;;

I hope everyone has a good week and weekend!

Yesterday, all the first images and CMs from Peach Girl came out! I watched the broadcast on Mezamashi TV with the interview that Inochan clearly did on Thursday after his regular Mezamashi broadcast XD I have to say, I usually hate romance movies, but I was so kyun'd and excited when I saw the preview that I watched it several more times online and then decided to make the promotional graphic into my phone background.

I managed to get my hands on some fliers today, but I made this off of scans I found online before I got my own fliers, so the quality isn't super awesome, I'm sorry about that! But I figured if anyone else was as excited as I am about the movie, they might be interested in this as well XD;

If you're interested, please check behind the cut! Sorry for the large image. It's made for an iPhone 5/5S/SE.

Momo & Kairi~Collapse )

I'm already anxious to see the movie in theaters, and it won't be out for another seven months! (@ A @) But for the time being, I can't wait to watch more trailers... or maybe just watch this same trailer a bunch more times. XD;

Today is Gunma Kenmin no Hi, which means I have no classes and the kids didn't come to school, so I'm trying to stay in my current rhythm and keep from getting too far behind in reports!

All my reports are going to rely heavily on the report of the first show I saw, on August 12th, so that I don't have to list out every song and describe every costume each time. From now on, I'm going to focus on the things that were unique to each show, so if you're curious about the setlist and costumes and things like that, please check back to that report!

Hey! Say! JUMP in Yokohama Arena, 2016.8.13 @ 12:30 pmCollapse )

Sorry again for how late this was... but I'll try to keep writing these reports and get them out before it gets to be too late >___> Hopefully it was still an enjoyable read, even though the concert is almost done!

Fantastic Time dropped today, which means that I got it and was able to watch it yesterday, but I watched it again with my friends today, and I have to say that I really love it. I like the costumes and the dance really speaks to me! The choreographer was apparently someone new who had never choreographed for them before, and I really liked what he did. I want to watch the dance video a bunch of times so that I can learn the choreography and do it myself! XD;

Also! Can we talk about the amazing Inoo and Hikaru part in the second verse?? It's a shame it will never get performed on anything since it's in the second half, but it's so cute when Hikaru puts his hand on Inoo's shoulder and Inoo looks at him, ahhhh.

I really enjoyed the ridiculous making, too, and the PV as a whole. The guys look so good and seem like they're doing well, so I'm really happy. ♥

I know this is crazy late, but I'm finally getting around to writing up my reports for the DEAR. tour this summer and fall. I'm really sorry!

This is the report of the first day in August, so if you're interested, please check out below the cut!

Hey! Say! JUMP in Yokohama Arena, 2016.8.12 @ 5 pmCollapse )

Our seats weren't ideal for that show, but it was still a really good performance! All in all, while DEAR. is really different than JUMPing CARnival was, I really liked it a lot, and I'm looking forward to writing up the other shows, too!

This is pretty stupid, but... I'm always amused by Hikaru's jealousy and I was inspired by various JUMP appearances on TV this week. Hopefully it's an amusing read, if nothing else.

In good news, one more day to Fantastic Time furage!!

title: Jealousy
rating: PG
pairing: Yaotome Hikaru x Inoo Kei
word count: 2,315
beta: yomimashou
author’s note: Based on the episodes of Bibitto and Meringue no Kimochi from the week of Octobr 17th in 2016! Written for shiritori @ writetomyheart
summary: Hikaru can’t help but think that he’s so, so lucky to have Inoo in his life to (try not to) be jealous over.

"That"s enough!" Hikaru squawks as Daiki hits the replay button gleefully.Collapse )

I haven't had the most productive day (mostly trying to deal with the huge amount of magazines that are in my life >_>) but I also updated my sales page.

Sorry to keep pimping it (I'll try not to do it very often!) but since I'm moving within the next year, I really want to get these CDs and DVDs to good homes where someone will love them.

I added a bunch of Sexy Zone CDs, so if you're interested, please take a look here. ^^;;

Also, prices are pretty negotiable, so please don't hesitate to ask me about things!

I'm back from Yokohama and so sad that the tour is possibly done for me ;___; The shows were amazing, the guys were amazing, the new song is amazing, and the fact that I got to be there when they announced that they're doing Tokyo Dome on New Year's was amazing, too. I feel so lucky to have been able to see the show 6 times so far, and I really hope that I'm able to see one more in Nagoya, and also in Tokyo Dome at the end/beginning of the year.

I feel so happy recently to be a Tobikko, which, considering how stressful it was for JUMP and their fans from about 2011 to 2012, is a pretty amazing and wonderful feeling. The guys themselves have grown up so much, and all work so hard and work through their differences and work together well to make JUMP amazing, and the group has come together so much over the past nine years. Each member contributes something unique to the group, and even if there are nine of them, which is a lot, they still fit together just right to make the group what it is.

I'm going to try to get my reports... from August, and also October... done soon, though work is a bit busy and stressful, but for now, I'm just basking in the feeling of how great JUMP is. I hope they're taking a well-deserved rest today, and that they know just how much they mean to their fans. ♥

[Edit] It feels a bit crass to mention this at the end of my post full of feelings somehow, but I forgot to mention that Yamada saw me and did fanservice for me on Saturday and Monday. Keito also saw me both days and waved. Inochan didn't see me, but I'm pretty happy anyway |D;

I wanted to be able to post this on yomimashou's actual birthday, because we won't be doing anything special that day since we're celebrating a little tomorrow and then more when we're in Yokohama for JUMP this weekend, but this week gets crazy busy for me after today, so... I'm sorry that it's a day early! It's also un-beta'd because yomimashou is my usual beta, so please forgive the typos. And of course, I hope it's enjoyable!

summary: Everything in Namikiyo’s life has always been devoted to Saiga-sama, all Saiga-sama, only Saiga-sama.

Well, I'm not sure how this happened, but somehow, I was inspired to write fic for Samurai Mode. The nostalgia overtook me, I guess. XD After rewatching the DVD of the 2008 show, I really just have a lot of love for this pairing, so even if it's a blast from the past, I wanted to write a little something. Hopefully it's enjoyable!

title:静かな賀宴 (shizuka na gaen; a quiet banquet)
rating: g
pairing: Shisui/Saiga (Sano Daiki and Washio Noboru’s characters in Samurai Mode)
word count: 2,080
beta: yomimashou
author’s note: This is set about a year after the end of the Vol. 15 Samurai Mode saien from 2016 (which is subtly different from the original 2008 version). Most of the backstory in here is just my personal headcanon for the saien, so my apologies if it’s confusing. The title is a play on the kanji that I chose for their names (since *pnish* has never given kanji); in my heart, Shisui is 静水 and Saiga is 才賀 . The saien really just stole my heart, so I wanted to write a little something about one of my favorite *pnish* pairings. ♥
summary: Saiga doesn’t think it’s immaturity that finds him coming back here night after night, and he doesn’t think Shisui would say it was either, which is, perhaps, what makes the current state of affairs so complicated.

The overgrown path around to the back of the temple, shadowy and moonlit now in the dark of the night, is familiar and welcoming now, Saiga thinks as he lets himself through the side gate.Collapse )

Back from Tokyo, and from seeing Shounentachi for a second time, and also the saien of *pnish*'s Samurai Mode! I'm going to try to write up Shounentachi this year (and also write up last year's for posterity, because I really enjoyed last year's more), but right now, I'm totally in awe of how great Samurai Mode was. Please forgive the non-Johnny's gushing and rambling... it's super nostalgic for me and I want to get all my feelings out XD;

Spoilers for Samurai Mode!Collapse )

I know I'm really behind in stuff, but I needed to get all my nostalgic feelings out, ahaha ^^;;; And seriously, if you're into theatre and in Japan, I definitely recommend *pnish*'s works!

I managed to get this done before I slip away for a long weekend in Tokyo! I know I haven't been inspired recently (probably because I'm stressed out... and now the fact that I'm not being fandom productive is making me more stressed out... OTL), but at least I managed this.

I'm going to be away for the weekend, though, so if you try to reach me I may not be able to get back to you! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Also, hopefully the fic is enjoyable.
