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.

Three things: 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) and I don't friend journals that are mostly sales journals. I also 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 my 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.

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 alive and in Paris! So far, I've been here two full days just hanging out with my sister, but my parents arrive today, and then we're going to start doing touristy things, hooray! But as a laid back kind of person, I've been really enjoying just soaking up the atmosphere and the amazing food, omg. Bread and cheese forever.

I have some photos and stuff of my trip here and the Christmas market and what have you, but for now, I just wanted to drop by and say I'm alive!

And… off to France for ten days! Then back for two days, then off to Tokyo for Countdown, etc.

Not sure how much net access I'll have, but I will be checking daily, so I should be able to respond to stuff.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

pairing: Yaotome Hikaru/Inoo Kei
warnings: The subject of this fic is a high school student kissing his teacher and vice versa; if that makes you uncomfortable, please proceed with caution!
word count: 588

author's note: AU in which Inoo is Hikaru's high school math teacher! Written for shiritori @ writetomyheart~
summary: Hikaru might be a brat, but as dumb as he is, it's become abundantly clear that he really does like Inoo, and Inoo can't help liking him, too.

'Now I can be the student crushing on their teacher,' Hikaru says with a sly grin.Collapse )

Thank you, everyone, so much for all the birthday wishes. I received way more well-wishes and messages than I ever expected today, and I'm so warmed and touched by how many people thought of me. I know that I don't contribute much and my journal is all whining and complaining, but I really do appreciate everyone who has reached out to me. Thank you so much. You contributed to a great birthday ♥

After work, yomimashou came over and gave moral support while I made uchiwas and made me delicious pasta, which was amazing. 9kinds also Skyped with us to be here in spirit XD; It wasn't very exciting, but it was still nice to spend my birthday with friends.

Seriously, though, thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. You made my day ♥

So… a lot of shitty things have happened in the past 24 hours, but I want to focus on the good things right now… so… I present you with the newest addition to my life…

Inobear!Collapse )

He goes along with yomimashou's Yabear and britkit27's Keibear, so maybe I'll post photos of all three sometime soon ♥ The costumes are ordered online, and the bears are from the Disney Store exclusive UniBEARsity line~ Instead of Duffy, since our three favourites happen to be the three university boys of JUMP, I thought it would be cute if we got the unibears. XD;

All in all, I'm really happy with him ♥ I've wanted a bear since I first saw girls with them at JUMP's 2012 tour! I'm hoping to bring him to countdown~

Tentatively, things are looking okay for my eye…! It turns out that I somehow got the wrong variety of the right brand of my contacts last time my mom sent me new ones? So possibly that was irritating my eye? I'm not sure. But I got a pair to try out of my previous variety, and wore them for a few hours today, and I'm going to try them out for two weeks and then go back to the doctor, so hopefully, things will go smoothly. T__T;

For now, bed! I have to get up ass early tomorrow, yuck.

Best Artist was amazing this year~ I was a dumdum and forgot to set my recorder, so I have to wait for a download to watch it again, but JUMP was amazing. ♥ Everyone looked so good, and they performed so well, and omg the moment between Hikaru and Inoo ahhh ♥___♥ All the stars in my eyes. All their costumes looked amazing on them, as well (I loved the fur collars on their Aino Arika suits!) and ugh it was so good.

Arashi was really great as well! The medley I voted for won! They're so cute and old and weird and full of feelings. ♥ I can't wait to see them in two weeks.

And everyone being there for Tackey, oh god. ;___; I guess I haven't touched on it here, really, but… considering how bad Tsubasa's condition seems, I just feel so horrible for both of the, and my heart just goes out to Tackey who, seems like he's trying so hard to stay strong but struggling to hold it together. Seeing all the other Johnny's guys be there for him when he had to be alone, without Tsubasa, was just… really the sweetest. I hope that Tsubasa has a speedy recovery and that whatever treatment they give him (since Meniere's disease isn't curable as far as I can tell?) works and he'll be well again soon.

Last night ended up being way more stressful than it needed to be, and I meant to post this then, but… shit happened. Anyway, there's good news and bad news, and since I like to end on a positive note, have the bad news first.

As it turns out, my computer issue wasn't just a one-time deal, but rather a widespread and known problem with my model of computer. And just… what, two weeks? after getting my logic board replaced, the issue has started up again, with my computer display having something weird and crazy happen (blue screen of death, split screen with a black line down the middle, etc). When I reboot, it boots back up normally, though, so I'm worried that if I tried to take it in as things are, they wouldn't do anything about it. >___< I'm under warranty until May, but I'd rather not spend two weeks time and time again with my computer being sent in for a new logic board. >___<;;; I don't really know any solution, and it's really stressing me out.

But… in the good news, I managed to write about half of my hols! So I'm really glad about that. I don't know when I became this horribly procrastinatory person, but I think (hope) I'll be okay. I already passed the word limit, anyway, so there's no more stress there, and I can just write naturally.

And on the bright side, it's almost my birthday, which isn't that exciting, but I'm meeting up with britkit27 the weekend before, and I'm looking forward to it ♥

Scraping in at the last minute with my shiritori! Also having more computer problems; it turns out my issue is actually a pervasive issue with late 2011 MacBook Pros @___@;;; So… here's to hoping that things are okay, and thinking about more positive things. Enjoy!

summary: Even Inoo has a little common sense, and so despite how strong the temptation, despite the tightness in his chest and the flipping of his stomach when he thinks about Hikaru, his better judgement stops him from calling every time.

One way or another, Inoo avoids the temptation of calling Hikaru in the weeks following their fateful meeting at the handshake event.Collapse )

Just a quick post to say I'm sorry I haven't responded to comments-- I was busy yesterday, and today I had to go to conference for work, and now I need to go to bed so I can get up at 4 am for my staff trip tomorrow. I'll definitely get to comments and everything be the end of the weekend, I'm sorry it's taking so long!

Also, Little Tokyo Live was great ♥ Not as great as when Ino-chan did the Mousou Live, but still pretty awesome. I really hope the show has been getting good ratings because it's really amazing!

Today was a really trying and tiring day, so I'm just going to drop some of the good things here~

❂ I don't even know if I ever mentioned this here, but the wonderful 9kinds hit for the Nagoya shows for Arashi, so I'll be going to an Arashi concert for the first time! We just got our seats yesterday, and they're within the first ten rows of the lower stands!! I don't know how I lucked out so much, but I'm really happy.

❂ Inoo is going to be on Little Tokyo Live tonight! Totally excited! Even if I can't watch it until tomorrow at the earliest >__>

❂ I turned on my heater, which is going to suck when I get my energy bill, but my apartment is not quite as intolerable right now!

❂ Also, breaking out all the cute sweaters and tights.

❂ Three day weekend is coming up! And I'm going on my faculty/staff trip to Nagano~

And now I need to get to bed before I get too tempted to try to watch Little Tokyo Live >___> Why does it come on just past my bedtime??

Earlier this week, a paper that Inoo co-authored got put up on an internet scholarly resource database called CiNii (it seems to be like the Japanese version of jstor), and this has sparked a lot of discussion as to if Inoo was in graduate school, or how he got such a paper posted. The paper is posted here; you can see that Inoo is listed with the subtitle of "graduate school" beneath his name. Assuming from this that he was or is in graduate school seems rational, and even sparked the confusion and surprise of various Japanese fans on Twitter (the second link there clarifies later that Inoo isn't a graduate student as far as the fan knows, but was just working in a graduate lab), but actually, while I can't prove for a fact that he doesn't go, I can prove that his work on this paper was not as a graduate student.

Inoo has mentioned before that he chose to take his senior lab on earthquake reconstruction in his 10,000 character interview (you can read a translation here), but a little digging around reveals that specifically, he did his lab here, with this particular professor. I'm not going to translate it all word for word because frankly, I don't have the energy right now, but on the website, it says that the lab is for 4th year college students and graduate students. So while the lab is associated primarily with the graduate school it also is open to 4th year students, which is when Inoo participated. As far as I can tell, Meiji University was either not allowed to use Inoo's name anywhere, or they didn't want his events getting attacked by yarakashi, because his name isn't listed pretty much anywhere, and, in fact, events that I have proof he attended aren't even listed on the website. I found two slip-ups, the first of which is on the schedule-- if you scroll down to the 2011年度 section (which means the 2011-2012 school year), the event on 2月28日(火)(2/28, Tuesday) lists Inoo's name. This was the beginning of the project that he worked on for the whole next year, a study about elementary and junior high schools in Iwate prefecture in relation to the earthquake. In the Japanese school schedule, February 2012 was right at the end of Inoo's 3rd year of college, so he took part in this lab mostly in the next year, 2012年度, or the 2012-2013 school year, which was his fourth year.

Unfortunately, since his name/events he attended aren't listed, I can't give that much more information, but in relation to this project, I found him in two news sources, by some miracle. The first is this news article, which doesn't mention him by name but (accidentally?) posted his photo for a brief time. A bunch of fans screencapped it, but by now, his photo has been removed from any remaining news sources, which leads me to believe that the press didn't realize one of the students was a Johnny |D; But either way, it talks about how on May 19th, 2012, Inoo went to Iwate with one other student and the professor, Yamamoto, to interview students in a survey they were doing. This trip isn't listed on the lab's schedule website (others to the same town in Iwate are listed), which, like I said above, makes me think that they didn't list anything with Inoo so that fans wouldn't stalk him.

The other place I can find him named is this article, which talks about his lab's group taking a trip to talk about post-earthquake development in Germany. It lists that three graduate students and eight 4th year college students, including Inoo (you can contol+F 伊野尾慧), for a total of 11 students, going on the trip. This is posted on the Meiji Graduate School page, because, as mentioned before, the lab seems to be more affiliated with the graduate school than the undergraduate architecture department (it seems like the undergrads are more research assistants?), but when the same article was posted on the Meiji undergraduate architecture department's site here, Inoo's name was removed and instead it lists 10 names "etc" for a total of 11 students. XD;;; Seemingly, the graduate school didn't get the notice that they were supposed to remove Inoo's name.

So then that brings us back to the paper that was posted on the CiNii database. It doesn't say it in the English, but in the Japanese, it says that the paper was published in relation to its presentation at the 2013 Japan Architecture Academic Conference. The conference happened from August 30th to September 1st, 2013, which means that Inoo was already graduated, and its existence on the schedule on the Yamamoto Lab website leads me to believe that Inoo didn't go, but on the conference's website, it says the submission deadline was April 4th of the same year, just a week after Inoo graduated. So it seems logical that the paper he helped write would have been submitted at that time. While, without either being enrolled in a Japanese university or paying, I can't access the actual articles, if you search "2013年度日本建築学会大会 都市計画" on the CiNii database ("2013 Japan Architecture Academic Conference Urban Planning"-- Inoo's paper was in the urban planning section) you can see other papers submitted in the same publication; many of them are works by students who participated in the conference, and at least some percentage of them appear to be college students despite being listed as graduate students. I tried to see if Inoo himself participated in the conference, but I can't find any proof that he was in Hokkaido, where the conference happened, in late August/early September 2013, so I can only assume that, since he had already graduated, he didn't go.

And… on top of all that, it was never any secret that Inoo went to college, or where he went. It was common knowledge that he studied architecture at Meiji University. Why would it be a secret that he went to graduate school, if he was going to go? Just recently on Little Tokyo Live, he talked about how he had graduated with an architecture degree. If he was doing grad school, why wouldn't he have said he was in grad school?

And besides, Inoo has said before (sorry, I'm too tired to dig up the articles now; the problem with reading Japanese is that I read things in magazines and then forget which magazine from my huge shelf of magazines it was in) that he was really glad to be done, and the other members have talked, too, about how happy he was to be done. I saw him with my own eyes at the Johnny's World Kanshasai back in March 2013, and his demeanor was so different than it had been. And I think, more than anything, what sticks with me is what he said in his 10,000 word article. This is my own translation below-- I wanted to translate what he said in my own best expression of his feelings:

ーYou went on to college after you debuted, huh.
Yeah. I said that high school never really agreed with me and I never really adjusted to it, right? I always thought there was no point in going to high school, and there was no point in graduating. But then my mom said to me, "Is that really so?" Wasn't it true that if I graduated high school, I'd have the qualifications to get into college? Since that's how it was, I started to think, maybe I should try out going to college in order so that I could feel like there was some meaning to graduating high school. I guess I decided sometime around the end of my second year of high school.

ーYou didn't get the feeling that, in going to college, your work and your classes might end up half-assed or done carelessly?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's because I was constantly in state of indecision. There were times when I thought that deciding to go to university was a really bad choice. But I also thought that there were good sides to it, like being able to meet a wide variety people, and being able to view my job from the point of view of a university student.

ーThat is to say, that one that was your base was…?
My base was first and foremost being an idol . Even though it's difficult (laugh).

This interview was done after he had already graduated, which means that these were his feelings about college after he was done. It's not that he didn't really feel it before he went, but then went and discovered that really what he wanted was to continue education… he appreciated that he went, but being an idol has always been what he wants in the end.

So in conclusion, I'm not so much of a stalker that I can say with conviction that he isn't in grad school and never went, but I do feel that it's highly unlikely!

…wow am I a weirdo. I'm sorry for all this. x___x;

Some of you may remember this delightful example of how I'm nerdy to a crazy level back in August 2013. For those of you who don't, if you're interested in my analysis of Johnny's debuts for the past ten years or so, particularly volleyball debuts, please check it out! For those of you who think I'm crazy… please scroll past this post altogether |D;;; This is going to be another long and crazy one.

At any rate, I did another prediction a half-year later, here. My plan was to keep doing them at half-year intervals, but due to a variety of circumstances both in the world of Juniors (which has been pretty much lacking in information between the Gamushara Sexy Natsu Matsuri this summer and now, considering very few juniors with the correct qualities for volleyball debut were in Dream Boys) and in my personal life, things have gotten a little late. I'm sorry! I'm going to go ahead and do my 1-year prediction now, a little late (it's about a year before the actual debut, rather than the announcement), and then my half-year prediction in April, and, if all goes well, a 1-month-before prediction near the middle of August.

Of course, things have changed since last January, so I'm going to throw in a reminder of the ~Golden Rules~ before we begin:

General:
☆ Non-volleyball debuts are always Junior units first
   →(Kanjani8, KAT-TUN, Kis-My-Ft2, ABC-Z, Johnny's West✝)
☆ Volleyball debuts are never Junior units first (Arashi, NEWS, Hey! Say! JUMP, Sexy Zone)
☆ Volleyball groups must break up a four-member junior unit
   →(MAIN, 4tops, Ya-ya-yah, B.I.Shadow)✝✝

Volleyball Debuts:
☆ Volleyball groups have a large age range
☆ Volleyball groups have a descending average age over the years✞
☆ Volleyball groups either have 5 or 9-10 members at debut
☆ Volleyball groups usually include a few "fresh" juniors.

Footnotes:
✝ Since I originally wrote my post last August, Johnny's West has debuted, becoming the first group to have a non-volleyball debut without first being a junior group. However, since it was the combination of two preexisting junior groups and one member who'd been working with them for some time, it's safe to say that they regardless have a sense of unity at debut that volleyball units, who often have members completely new to the agency, do not.
✝✝ I am aware that Sexy Boyz has continue to fluctuate and change over the past year and may or may not count as a 4-member unit, however, for all intents and purposes, I don't think there's any alternative 4-member unit to be considered. I'll address this more later.
✞ There was one upward age jump between Arashi and NEWS. While the general trend is descent, I don't think that it's out of the question for this year's group's average age to be above that of Sexy Zone at debut.

And now, onto the late 2014 prediction:

☆ Iwahashi Genki (1996.12.17 - age 18 in 2015.9) ex 4-member
☆ Jinguji Yuta (1997.10.30 - age 17 in 2015.9) ex 4-member
☆ Ⓐ
☆ Ⓑ
☆ Inoue Mizuki (2000.10.30 - age 14 in 2015.9)
☆ Kaneda Yosei (2001.3.22 - age 14 in 2015.9)
☆ Kawasaki Koki (2002.7.30 - age 13 in 2015.9)
☆ Toyoda Rikuto (2004.1.27 - age 12 in 2015.9)
☆ "fresh member" (2004~2005 - age 11 in 2015.9)


★ ➀ Nakamura Reia (1997.4.2 - age 18 in 2015.9)
★ ➁ Matsukura Kaito (1997.11.14 - age 17 in 2015.9)

★ ➀ Takahashi Fu (1998.5.8 - age 17 in 2015.9)
★ ➁ Matsuda Genta (1999.4.19 - age 16 in 2015.9)

Number of members: 9
Average age: 14.8~14.6
Number of members from a 4-member Junior unit: 2
Age of oldest at debut: 18
Age of youngest at debut: 11
Number of "Fresh" members: 1

Obviously, this is more complicated than previous predictions and needs explaining. These are a few clarifications on my thought process in making this list:

① If it's not clear, basically, right now, I think there are two sets of options for two of the spots in the group, so there's two choices for Ⓐ, the older of the two spots, and two choices for Ⓑ, the younger of the two spots. The main factor that lead to this decision is that I'm not sure where Sexy Boyz stands. Sexy Boyz/Sexy Show could count as one four-member unit, which would make Matsukura Kaito and Matsuda Genta ineligible for this volleyball debut. But it might also not count-- it's been very off-and-on, and mostly seems like an "excuse" for all the crap that's currently going on with Sexy Zone. Even after the Matsuri, permutations of Jinguji / Genki / Miyachika / Kishi / Aran have been announced as Sexy Boyz, leading me to believe that maybe, Matsukura and Genta might be able to debut with this group after all. If you asked me, out of the "set ➀" and "set ➁" that I have listed above, which seems like the more likely, I guess I'd say "set ➁" due to the fact that they've been more heavily pushed recently, but it's pretty hard to tell at this point.

② There have been various speculations raised about the current strong push with Nagase Ren, Hirano Sho, and Takahashi Kaito. While Takahashi Kaito was mentioned in my previous prediction as a possibility if he weren't slated for 2020 (which was still a thing at that time), his current strong affiliation with Kansai Juniors is leading me to believe that perhaps he won't be included after all. Why wouldn't Kansai Juniors be included? There are a couple of factors to consider here:
→ Kansai Juniors have only once ever been included in a volleyball debut, and it ended in disaster; there are currently no members active in volleyball units who were ever Kansai Juniors.
→ If Nagase and Hirano were to be debuted now, Kansai Juniors would be in trouble, completely lacking "front" popular members. It is my belief that Hirano and Nagase are being so strongly pushed right now to fill the gap left by BAD and 7West, who had been the most famous and most popular Kansai Juniors for quite some time. I know several (former?) Kansai Juniors fans who now only focus on Johnny's West, meaning that if Kansai Juniors does't gain new popular members to fill the gap, they'll lose fans. I believe that Nagase and Hirano (with Takahashi Kaito) are being pushed to fill that gap. Therefore, it would not make sense, and in fact be detrimental to Kansai Juniors, to have Nagase and Hirano debut at this point with the volleyball unit.
→ While Takahashi Kaito is not a Kansai Junior, his current grouping with them leads me to believe that he may too be too strongly associated with Kansai Juniors to be included in the debut this time, but that's a more tentative decision. If I had to place Takahashi Kaito into this lineup, it would be instead of Takahashi Fu, as the "Ⓑ" choice for "set ➀" as listed above.

③ As mentioned before, Kishi Yuta will be too old for the volleyball debut and Morimoto Shintaro seems too associated with older Juniors at this point in time to be considered. Kuramoto Kaoru has left Johnny's since my previous lineup. I've added Inoue Mizuki instead of Hashimoto Ryo, because I haven't seen much of Hashimoto Ryo recently, and Inoue Mizuki is often featured in stage shows such as ABC-Za and Dream Boys. However, Inoue might be switchable for Hashimoto.

④ If they decided to add one more member and make it ten, Inoue will be bumped to the ani-gumi and they can add another "fresh" Junior. I'm a little hesitant about the fact that there's only one fresh member, but considering Sexy Zone was more than 50% fresh members, I suppose that sort of balances it out. Either way, if Inoue's position is bumped to the ani-gumi, he might be replaced with Tamamoto Fumito, who is born in 1999, since another young fresh member would bring down the average age. This would also divide the ani and otouto-gumi a little more cleanly.

⑤ If for some reason they decided to have less members (this is unprecedented, but not out of the question), Inoue would probably be the easiest to cut, also, because he's in the middle, and it would bring the otouto-gumi down to 4 to be evenly split with the ani-gumi.

⑥ Historically speaking, the "fresh" member should be someone with a famous parent who has lived abroad for the last 5 years at least. If someone like that crops up, please let me know. |D;;;

…I think that's about all! If you made it this far, otsukare!! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss in the comments! I know I'm a total nerd about this stuff, but if anyone else wants to discuss, I'm always happy to.

Also, I'll probably be posting the questions to the Myojo Junior Ranking again this year, like I did last year. I know it's a bit late-- I've already submitted my ballot-- but I figured it was fun discussing last year, so there might be some people interested again this year. ^^

In the meantime, happy Friday!

My computer is back! ;~~~; I'm so happy. I got a new logic board, which is actually sort of what I figured the problem was, but either way, everything seems okay now! Also, everything is so clean~ They cleaned my screen and keyboard, yay XD;; AND I got my receipts and stuff in an Apple clearfile! In America, they just hand it to you XD This is what I call service!

Hopefully now I can get back to being productive @___@;; I have no plans this weekend, so I hope to catch up with everything I missed while I was stuck using that tiny useless computer. I have big plans of doing reports and fic and graphics and all sorts of things, but… we'll see what actually gets done XD;

For now, maybe I can get to bed at a decent time for once this week >___>;;;

There's stuff going on at work today that lead to me having the whole day free! So I somehow managed to both get ahead on my work and write a fic, yay. I'm not really sure where this came from, but... hopefully it's enjoyable anyway.


title: Comfort
rating: g
pairing: Jinguji Yuta/Nakamura Reia
word count: 2,304
beta: yomimashou
author's note: I don't actually feel that strongly one way or another about the casting for the new NTV drama that came out today, but somehow, this came to me, and so I wrote it. Their love is beautiful ♥
summary: Jinguji exhales and seems to take a moment to gather himself, his fingers tightening in Reia's hair and the material of his shirt, before he finally adds, "I want to be there and comfort you, too. It's not fair if you don't let me."

Reia isn't sure when going to Jinguji's house became so comfortable that it was something he did by himself, without a second thought, without Jinguji even there.Collapse )

Oh my god, my week has been a mess and it's only Tuesday. I meant to post yesterday like, back from the KisuMai con, etc etc etc, but then I fell asleep in front of my computer =____=;;; So.. I'm back and alive! The concert was really fun, and I had a good time meeting up with a old friends and meeting new people, too! Special thanks to snowqueenofhoth for arranging a get-together on Sunday!

The bad news is, I'm desperately sleep deprived and need to get to bed ASAP. But the good news is, I got a call and my computer is ready to be picked up!! So with any luck, fingers crossed, tomorrow I'll have my computer back and not be struggling with this crappy netbook anymore. They didn't mention data loss on the phone, but... here's to hoping that that means there actually was none ;;;

For now, sleep x___x;

omg I wrote a companion to the idol fic! I'm really proud of myself. XD; I somehow managed to write this all in one day, go figure.

title: もう戻れないよ
rating: pg
pairings:gen; Yamada-centric + Hikaru and Takaki
warnings: Slight mentions of body image issues (it's not central to the plot, but Yamada has them), so if that might be triggering to you, please be forewarned!
word count: 3,257
beta: yomimashou
author's note: This is part of my AU based on Hey! Say! JUMP's new subgroups from the s3art album, and on the performances done by those groups at the s3art tour in Yokohama Arena a month ago. Hikaru, Yamada, and Takaki were introduced as being dangerous criminals, and so... this happened. XD; This is technically a companion to もっとみてよ、みつめてよ, but you don't really have to read it to understand this one. ^^ Written for shiritori @ writetomyheart!
summary: Yamada never thought sneaking into locked, guarded buildings and burglarizing them would be something he found fun and exciting... but then again, a year ago, he'd never have thought he'd enjoy stripping, either, so he supposes that he's just going to have to learn to live with it.

'Don't hurt yourself jumping to conclusions there, Yama-chan.'Collapse )

For once, a post not complaining about the state of my computer... T__T;;;

I finally got around to watching the first JUMP episode of Little Tokyo Live today! It wasn't as good as the second one, in my opinion, but it was pretty fun! Honestly, I would watch JUMP members reacting to VTRs of ridiculous things for a long time. XD Also Hikaru's mune-kyun bit was pretty hilarious and ridiculous. XD

Sadly, I have to go to bed before it comes on air, but I have my digital recorder set for tonight's show and I can't wait to watch it later ;___; Ino-chan, finally!! How long has it been since he was on anything other than the livestage of a JUMP variety show? ;___;

Aaaaand then this weekend will be KisuMai! I have nosebleed seats, but I'm sure it'll be fun nonetheless ^^;
