In an (almost, maybe?) all time record of lateness, here's my second new year's meme of the year. I was crap about writing fic in 2016, but I still wrote some worthwhile stuff, I think.

Fics for 2016! )

This week is already long, ugh, but the first week back always is, I suppose. I'll do my best to keep being productive!
faded_lace: (Hokuto: glowing)
In an all-time actually not all time (I did this meme on January 13 in 2008) record of lateness, here is my regular New Year's meme! It's always interesting to look back on the year, and to compare to the year previous, so I always enjoy doing this. ♥

In your archive, find the first post for every month of 2015, and copy and paste the first sentence here.

hey!say!27年 )

Despite that there were ups and downs this year just like any other year, I'm really glad to see that my posts were largely positive. I'm going to try to keep doing my best to make 2016 as positive as possible, too!
faded_lace: (Chinen: musing)
I always do the same 3 memes at the beginning of every year, so here's the first! This is the writing meme, where I link and talk about all my fics from 2015. It's always interesting me to look over all my work from one year together, so hopefully it's interesting to people who are not me, too. ^^;; So without further ado:

Fics for 2015! )

While fic writing in 2015 had its ups and downs, I wrote some things I really like this past year. ♥ Here's to hoping I can continue to produce works I'm proud of in 2016, too!

OTP meme!

Feb. 16th, 2015 05:15 pm
faded_lace: (Aiba&Jun: ♥)
I saw this floating around and decided why the hell not. XD Time to do something positive with my life! It was fun and nice to think about something good for the first time in a while! On top of that, the sun was shining, the weather was pretty warm for February, and I my health seems pretty okay! Not to mention the JUMP DVD comes out on Wednesday~ I'm happy! Look at that XD

Choose 5 OTPs without looking at the questions behind the cut first, then tag friends to do the same.

My Five OTPS
1) Jinguji Yuuta x Nakamura Reia (Johnny's Jr.)
2) Yaotome Hikaru x Inoo Kei (Hey! Say! JUMP)
3) Yamada Ryosuke x Chinen Yuri (Hey! Say! JUMP)
4) Matsukura Hokuto x Kikuchi Fuma (Johnny's Jr. / Sexy Zone)
5) Matsumoto Jun x Aiba Masaki (Arashi)

Meme under here! )

Now off to make more chocolates! All my Valentine's Day stuff this year is super late, oops XD;
faded_lace: (Taiga: uh huh)
I'm definitely coming down with something, but I've finally managed to update my JE fic archive and regular fic archive! That's it for 2014! Thanks for another great year, everyone. ♥

I also decided to do the New Year Fic Meme again this year, because I managed to write a decent number of fics this year, too! It's not that much, but I'm pretty proud of myself nonetheless. So, without further ado:

Fics for 2014! )

This meme is always a lot harder and more involved than I expect |D; But there you have it! I also want to take the time to thank everyone who's helped me out as a beta or moral support through the past year, including [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou, [livejournal.com profile] yararanger, [livejournal.com profile] britkit27, [livejournal.com profile] 9kinds, and [livejournal.com profile] snow. And of course, thank you to everyone who read my fics in 2014! I really appreciate it, and I'm looking forward to sharing my work in 2015 with you!
faded_lace: (Inoo&Hikaru: upward)
First things first: Myojo, you are my one true love; thank you for this tweet!! A quick translation:
【Johnny's Junir, Myojo July issue】During the photo session, as they walked through the park, Iwahashi Genki said to Jinguji, who was talking about Nakamura Reia, "This whole time it's just been Reia, Reia. You really love Reia, huh?" Jealousy?!

I love how Johnny's/magazines are always pushing for multiple pairings. XD;; But. Assuming that the factual parts of this story are true… ;~~~~~; Their love is so beautiful. Jinguji is always worrying about being judged, and shows such a cultivated, fake image to the world, and tries to only do fanservice with the people Johnny's wants him to do fanservice with, but… he really does love Reia behind the scenes, and it's adorable every time we get to see it, like in the King & Queen & Joker making!

Second, I got tagged to do a handwriting meme by [livejournal.com profile] yararanger! I think that my handwriting is basically exactly what you'd expect from me… neat to a fault, haha. Image is under the cut to save the flists!

writing meme! )
faded_lace: (Jun: smile)
Doing another meme because I'm tired and busy right now. But I like writing and thinking about these sorts of things! So...

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

I can't swear that I'll be the most elaborate or the most timely (I'll probably write sometime in the next week or so but I can't promise to it), but last time I did this meme, it was really fun and rewarding! I really like thinking thinky thoughts, especially about stuff that already inspired me to write a fic and all. So... ask away. ^^;

...Also, I've been listening to Congratulations on repeat forever. Such a great song. ;~~~; It gives me so many feelings.
faded_lace: (Jun: thougtful)
I don't know if anyone is interested in this sort of meme anymore now that LJ-style RPing has gone out of style, especially in JE fandom, but this meme is fun and silly, and I figured I'd give it another try. So...

Ask any JE guy you think I might be able to manage a question, and I'll reply in-character as them with an answer (or possibly reply as myself going 'WHAT THE HELL, I CAN'T DO THIS'). Feel free to ask either as yourself or as another character.

Ask away! (You may, if you wish, ask multiple questions (perhaps of multiple characters) or attempt to engage the characters in extended conversation.)

I can give a try to anyone in Arashi, JUMP, Sexy Zone, Bakaleya6, some of Kisumai (Kitayama, Miyata, and Tama are probably safe), and most of Sexy Boyz&co (Jinguji, Genki, Kishi, Reia, Fu, and Amu are definitely safe). No pressure to play, but it's been fun in the past and I figured it might be amusing. ^^;

In other news, today was my 3rd years' send-off party type thing, and it was really sad ;___; I'm going to miss those kids so much.
faded_lace: (Jun: thougtful)
I did this meme approximately three years ago (oh god) in January 2011, but I figured I'd do it again since I've gotten into new things and made new friends since then!

Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

The list is here! )

I feel a bit rusty on some of these, but I'll give it a whirl. XD; If there's someone that you want that's not on here, feel free to ask, but no promises XD; Obviously, if you ask me about like NEWS or KAT-TUN or something... I'm not going to be able to help you, but out of the groups I like and follow, I might be able to manage. ^^

Still working on the rest of the stuff I want to get done for this weekend, and so far, my to-do list is looking something like this:
☆ unpack
☆ hang up new posters/posters that fell while I was gone
☆ post hols fic on my LJ/to AO3, etc
☆ Do the fanfic New Year's meme
★ Make a new [livejournal.com profile] bakaleya_kumi poll
★ Make [livejournal.com profile] bakaleya_kumi friending meme
☆ Johnny's Countdown 2013-2014 report
☆ post about Hawaii
☆ post about Tokyo/New Years
☆ post recent development thoughts about the 2015 volleyball debut

The black stars are the ones I forgot before. XD; But I'm making my way through the list! So... just be a little more patient, please! ♥

fic meme!

First and foremost, I've finally updated my JE fic archive and regular fic archive! That's all my fics for 2013~

Next, I decided to do this fic meme again! I haven't done it in a long time, because for this first time since 2010, I'm actually proud of how much fic I wrote this year. I know 35 fics isn't that much, but it's better than I've been doing, so I want to pat myself on the back.

Fics for 2013! )

Whew! That was a lot of work. But I hope that all of my readers enjoyed my fics from 2013, and that you'll continue reading in 2014! I really appreciate all the hits and comments that I get, so thank you all for your support!
faded_lace: (Ohno: happiness)
Another 2013 roundup! I think I've had a reasonably productive year, considering that I have a full time job and all XD; Here's a numerical listing of what I've done this year:

Translations: 9
Icon batches: 6 (401 icons total)
Fics: 34 (35 including JE Hols, which will be posted in 2014 due to the reveal date)
Johnny's Shows/Concerts/Stageplays attended: 15

And here's a 2013 fandom meme! )

So, from 6 am Hawaii time until probably 3 pm Japan time on the 28th/29th, I'll be out of commission, since I'm traveling back home and immediately heading to Tokyo for three days with [livejournal.com profile] britkit27 and [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou. I'll probably will be pretty busy, so this might be my last post until the new year! If so, I hope everyone had a great 2013 and that everyone has a great 2014, too!
faded_lace: (Jun: smile)
So, I usually do this meme on January 1st every year, but since I'll be recovering from ARENA SEATS FOR COUNTDOWN WOOOO on January 1st this year, and I'll be pretty busy around that time, since I'm free for tonight before packing up tomorrow and heading back to Japan, where I'll be spending 4 days in Tokyo. So... sorry for wrapping up the year four days early!

So, without further ado~

In your archive, find the first post for every month of 2013, and copy and paste the first sentence here.

hey!say!25年 )

And that's a wrap for 2013! Only a few more days, and then 2014! I think that I've improved myself and my life a lot in 2013, and a lot of awesome things have happened. Here's to hoping that the last four will be awesome, too, and that 2014 will be even better!
faded_lace: (Chinen&Takaki: intimacy)

Hey! Say! JUMP
I love JUMP because they have a dynamic that feels like, more than anything, they like one another. I love JUMP for being fun to watch no matter if there's all of them, or one subgroup, or some random members, or even just a pair of members. I love JUMP because when you love one, it's impossible not to love them all. I love JUMP because they all have been in Johnny's so long and have put so much work into giving the best shows that they can, and I love JUMP because they all support one another and are there for one another. I love the stories they tell at MCs of all going out together during concerts tours. I love the things they say about one another in magazines. I love how during PV makings and concerts and magazine shoots, they all just seem happy to be around one another. I love JUMP for showing me a band with a somehow amazingly natural bond, and I can't wait to watch them continue to on together from here on out!

And of course... I have one more favourite thing in JE fandom... all my friends! To everyone who follows my journal, everyone who leaves me comments, everyone who chats with me through email or chat or PM, and participates in the communities I moderate, and to everyone who writes fics, does exchanges, runs communities, makes fanart, makes icons, writes meta, does translations, scans magazines, uploads, or otherwise shares and makes fandom a brighter place... thank you, and you truly are one of my favourite things. This fandom is full of some wonderful people, and so I want to wish everyone a happy holiday season, and to say I look forward to enjoying JE together in 2014, too!
faded_lace: (Yugo: golden)

Kouchi Yugo
I love Yugo because while he may not be the best dancer or singer, and he might not have the best stage presence, he's an amazing friend and an amazing senpai and just an earnest, hardworking person all around. I love the fact that he's carefree and funloving, but also the most responsible out of his group of friends. I love that he goes out of his way to stay friends with people and be there for them, both with Fuma now that B.I.Shadow is no more, and also with the younger ones like Jinguji, and I love how he's a great senpai and he's friends with a lot of the Sexy Boyz and younger kids. I love how perfect he is with Jesse, and how stupidly carefree and not image conscious they are together. I love how he's an amazing MC, which he showed at Crea, and how he's always aware of all the people around him. I love how he's a really good actor, even if he hasn't had many parts or many lines, and I really hope I have the chance to see more of him in dramas. I love how he just is a great guy all around, and I'm looking forward to supporting him from here on out, too!
faded_lace: (Hokuto&Fuma: puppy love)

Matsumura Hokuto x Kikuchi Fuma
I love this pair because their love is so strong that it can withstand their group falling apart and the members going their separate ways. I love them together because when they were little, their puppy love was sweet and adorable, and the way they couldn't stop looking at one another or giggling around one another or touching one another was seriously too cute, and because now that they've both recovered from B.I.Shadow's breakup, they still go out of their way to be together, like on Shounen Club and in magazine offshots and at countdown last year. I love how they've grown up together, and how at first they seemed to be nervous around one another and giggle whenever they touched or met eyes, but now they're so comfortable together and can put an arm around one another like it's nothing. I love how being together makes them smile. I love how they really just seem to make one another happy, and I hope they can continue to do so in the future.

Please forgive the old and dark image; being in Hawaii means that I don't have access to my external drives or time dig through the recesses of the internet!
faded_lace: (Kento and Shori: cuddles)

Nakajima Kento x Sato Shori
I love this pair because despite how opposite they are, they really suit one another. I love how Shori had a huge, unabashed crush on Kento for such a long time. I love how he stared lovingly at Kento from behind him throughout the Sexy Summer making of video, and how he would always gaze at Kento in concerts up until the Japan Tour concert. I love how he just looks so overjoyed even when they're doing silly fanservice together. I love how being around Kento makes Shori giggly and giddy. And I love how Kento seems to find Shori so cute and endearing despite the fact that Kento is so extroverted and over the top and popular and Shori is shy and introverted and quiet. I love the fact that they both seem to come together over their love of Sexy Zone, and over their mutual drive to give their all to their group. I love that despite everything, they seem to fit together really well, and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go in the future.
faded_lace: (Tama: we never give up)

Tamamori Yuta
I love Tama because he's 100% honest and truthful and never fake, 100% of the time. I love Tama because he's sweet and stupid and naive, and always speaks his mind, even if it's to complain or criticize someone. I love Tama because you can see when he's happy, or hurting, or tired, or bored right on his face. I love Tama because he can't ever remember the choreography or the lyrics, and he's awful at singing, but he does his best anyway. I love how cutely bad he is at roller skates. I love how outstandingly amazing he is at acting. I love how completely honest he is all the time, in every way, in every aspect. I love how I can look at him and know how he's feeling, and that no matter what that is, he's always giving his best to the group, no matter what. I love Tama for being like child, and for always being true to himself and never being fake.
faded_lace: (Tetsuya&Tatsuya: 絶対的絆)

Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou
I love Bakaleya because it's seriously both objectively and subjectively the best drama I've ever seen. I love Bakaleya because it has dynamic characters who learn and grow and form new relationships over the course of the series. I love Bakaleya because not only are the characters dynamic, but they're likable and relatable. I love Bakaleya because it's a drama about how girls and boys can be friends without having romantic interests in one another, and because it's a drama about how girls can have dreams and personalities on their own, and because it's a drama about how boys can be girlish and girls can be boyish and it's not bad or doesn't say anything about them besides that they aren't defined by stereotypical gender roles, and because it's a drama about how classism is bad and bullying is bad, too. I love Bakaleya because it has ships that aren't just fanservice, but that are about real feeling between the characters, whether as best friends or more. I love Bakaleya because it was the first drama I feel like I really, truly enjoyed for everything that it was, without pointedly ignoring something or other. I love Bakaleya because it's given me hours of enjoyment through fanfiction and roleplay and just exploring the universe through talking with friends. I love Bakaleya because... well, it made me love it, and it made me happy, and it made me have hope for the world.


Unrelatedly, NEW JUMP SINGLE?!?!!?! I'M SO EXCITED. FEATURING INOO AND HIKARU Y/Y?!? All four versions... come to me...
faded_lace: (Yamachii: cuddles)

I love YamaChii because they've grown up so much over the years, and have really grown on one another and into one another. I love how they've been friends since they were kids, and I love how their relationship endures despite rocky points or differences. I love how Chinen is always there to support Yamada, and is always positive towards him no matter what, and I love how much Yamada really cares about Chinen and doesn't have eyes for anyone else. I love seeing them interact in older things, like the NYC making of video or the JUMP 2010 concert, as well as more recently, like in their more recent concerts, where they can't take their eyes off of one another. I love how they fit so well together, but how they work to accommodate, help, and show their love for one another when they don't exactly line up. I love how they're on the up and up, and I can't wait to see more of them together in the future!
faded_lace: (Chinen: captivated)

Chinen Yuri
I love just about everything about Chinen. I love how he's spent more than half his life in Johnny's now, and how he loves everything about performing. I love how he's grown up from a cute, spoiled little boy into a mature, talented, still cute young man, and I love how much he loves himself, how much he doesn't let anyone's criticisms get to him and how he keeps confident and keeps doing his personal best. I love how supportive he is of his friends, and I love how kindly he treats his fans, going out of his way to do as many uchiwa requests and wave at as many people as possible. I love how talented he is, especially at dancing, and I love seeing him do both JUMP's regular choreography and more classical stuff like what he did in Where My Heart Belongs last year. I love how much of his heart and effort he puts into JUMP, and I love how he's proud of what he does. I love how he doesn't yield to pressure, but how he's more than willing to bend for the people he cares about. I love him for living his life as best he possibly can without getting caught up on the small things or looking backwards.

Aaaand that's the post for today (December 18th). I'm going to do serious time traveling on my way to Hawaii, because I'm crossing the date line, but I can't guarantee when I'm going to be able to post next, so... I'm sorry! I was crazy today teaching almost every period, and I'm stressed about traveling now, but... I'll try to be back as soon as possible! Until then... brief hiatus while I travel to Hawaii! ♥
