Well, it's officially Friday! That means I'm leaving "today"! Granted, I'm going to sleep before then, but still. XD;

I'm going to be on hiatus until December 28th (traveling with friends), and then again from December 30th to January 3rd (going to Tokyo for the JUMP concert/countdown). Basically, I'm going to be away from my computer/the internet for the remainder of the December until into the new year, so if you contact me, I probably won't see it immediately, or it'll take me a while to get back to it. I'm sorry! I will have my phone, and I'll be checking my email, so I'll do my best to respond to things, but I'll be mostly away from the internet!

But, I hope everyone has a happy winter/holiday season for those who celebrate winter holidays, and I'll check back in on December 29th if I can!

I'm sorry it's been forever since I wrote fic; life has been super busy as of late, what with job hunting and what have you, so I haven't had enough time for fandom stuff. But the next round of Shiritori started up, so at least here's a little something!


title: private
rating: pg
pairing: Yaotome Hikaru x Inoo Kei
word count: 900
beta: [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou
author’s note: Set after the 2016.12.3 episode of Radirer, where Inoo did a corner where he read messages that fans wanted him to say to Hikaru for his birthday. Written for Shiritori @ [livejournal.com profile] writetomyheart!
summary: For Inoo, the idea of making a show of his relationship with Hikaru onstage is too embarrassing and wrong to bear, and so he tries to keep his private life private.

Inoo laughs embarrassedly to himself as he and Hikaru make their way to Hikaru's manager's car. )

"What could it be that we lost on that day..."

(translated from the July 2015 issue of 喜劇悲劇 by [livejournal.com profile] faded_lace)


Ten years ago, there was a great earthquake in that town…

The town and the lives of the people who live there were irrevocably changed by that earthquake.
From the people of that town, their homes, the alleyway on which their homes stood, the tobacco shop on the corner, the bath house they often visited, the pub they always visited on Friday nights, the okonomiyaki¹ shop they sometimes found their way to in the early afternoon on Sundays, the little park with the little bit of shade… all the places filled with memories of their daily lives were snatched away…
And their fathers, their mothers, their children, their grandfathers, their grandmothers, their friends, all the people they loved… they were all snatched away…

Ten years have passed since that time…
It’s now January of 2005.

There’s a small factory tucked away in the corner of that town.

The play opens in “Hoshiyama Factory.”
There are lathes in various places.
The machines are dusty and seem as if they’re not operated very often, if at all.
The large industrial iron door in the front of the ironworks factory and the surface plate set out on the floor are covered in rust.
Upon surveying the room, it has an atmosphere of having fallen into ruin.
Around the steel work desk and the sofa, the room is expectedly cleaned up, but the sink area behind is piled full with dirty plates and bowls, and the garbage bag is carelessly dumped on the floor.
Next to the sink, a crooked curtain hangs in a doorway. It seems that beyond is the living area.
Beside the industrial door is a washing area, and next to that is a rusted bicycle.
From a radio dangling from a pillar, hit songs from ten years ago are playing.

Perhaps for the sake of the memories that must not be forgotten…

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. ♥

Magazines!

Nov. 12th, 2016 11:52 pm

Today [livejournal.com profile] 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!

Gag fic!

In a continued effort to keep things light and fun, here's a little comedic something that [livejournal.com profile] 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: [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou
author’s note: Sometimes, [livejournal.com profile] 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. )

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!
faded_lace: (Inoo: cosy)
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~ )

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;
faded_lace: (Inoo&Hikaru: upward)
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 pm )

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!
faded_lace: (Inoo&Hikaru: upward)
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. ♥
faded_lace: (Inoo: Pretty princess ♥)
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 pm )

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!
faded_lace: (Inoo: intimate)
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

author’s note: Based on the episodes of Bibitto and Meringue no Kimochi from the week of Octobr 17th in 2016! Written for shiritori @ [livejournal.com profile] 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. )

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;
faded_lace: (Daiki: ♡)
I wanted to be able to post this on [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou is my usual beta, so please forgive the typos. And of course, I hope it's enjoyable!


title: Devotion
rating: g
pairing: gen; Namikiyo (+ Saiga) centric
warnings: talk about war in a historical setting (the Sengoku period in Japanese history); if that might be upsetting to you, please read with caution!
word count: 3,507
author’s note: This is an early birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou! She fell for the new Namikiyo in the Samurai Mode saien, so I wanted to write a little something about him for her. ♥ Happy birthday, bff!
summary: Everything in Namikiyo’s life has always been devoted to Saiga-sama, all Saiga-sama, only Saiga-sama.

Namikiyo's first memories are of Saiga-sama )
