I will never get back the last 1 hour and 40 minutes I spent watching The Hangover, so I figured I will relieve my feelings and at the same time write about things that give me joy. ^^;;;

Let the Right One In )

Trainman (Densha Otoko 電車男) )

The Hangover )

Yes, so I am alive! The movies I did recommend are worth spending a little time on, I think, and I am going hunting for the Densha Otoko novel once I have time to go to the library. At some point I will do a post about my trip to China for my cousin's wedding, and have pictures. Here's hoping that will actually be before New Year's, haha. Love to all you darlings! ♥

Still alive, will update on RL stuff eventually.

I just had to rec this fic: Leading with my heart by [livejournal.com profile] acidpop25.
Inception fandom, Arthur/Eames, and hands down one of the best portrayals of an asexual character that I have ever seen in fic. It totally resonated with me, thus, reccing it!

Related: my delicious bookmarks page is where I keep links to all the lovely fic I've been reading. I need to go through my livejournal memories and input them and tag the heck out of them. >.>

In the immortal words of Granny Weatherwax. She is badass.

I'm....totally not in the mood to update about my life. Ehehehe. But instead, to have some useful content, I would like to direct everyone over to [livejournal.com profile] jerainbowbridge which just had an exchange. Basically a lot of inter-group unity and hijinks going on. Even if you don't know half the groups involved, that's okay, treat them like original characters. :D Because the talent over there is phenomenal, please go read!

My current favorites, working backwards:
Secret Places: Ohkura/Junno/Kame. Mmm, a definite curl-up-with-hot-tea-and-a-blanket story. Gorgeously lyrical writing.

How to Win Friends and Influence People: Yoko, Aiba, Nino, Koyama, Junno, Toma. Totally adorable friendship fic. Nino and Junno are my favorites in this, I think. ♥

eleven, uneven (perfect): Arashi and NewS office AU. At times silly, poignant, and revealing, this author clearly had a lot of fun putting different matchups together. Plus I am a sucker for office AUs.

Thin Line Between Work and Friendship: Toma/Yamapi, Yamapi-Jin-Ryo friendship. AU with Yamapi as a rent-a-friend. This was a lot sweeter than I expected from the premise. Yamapi's friends are not helpful. Except when they are. XDDD

Accidentally in Love ~or~ Five Times Jun Noticed Massu: Jun/Massu, Arashi, NewS. Guh, this is such an unexpected pairing, but pulled off convincingly, with neither party being unduly angsty or stupid. Koyama, Shige, Aiba and Sho kind of steal the show. XDDD So adorable.

Per Ardua, Ad Astra: NEWS, KAT-TUN, Arashi, Takki&Tsubasa, Toma & some other juniors, Hey!Say!JUMP cameo, Maki/Meisa cameos, ONE OK ROCK, Charlotte, Vistlip, SID (copied from the page because holy cow a lot of people. Okay, this one is epic. Cowboy Bebop or Firefly kind of epic. 4 parts epic. Hit all my space adventure kinks, though there's a bit of explanatory wordiness in lots of areas where Anon-san explains some of the physics or military stuff or technical what have you, it's not more than what you'd find in the average military space sci-fi novel. (Ahaha anyone who reads David Weber knows what I mean. XDDD) NewS and KAT-TUN as space traders of awesome. Two words: the ship's name is One Piece. XDDD

Never Compete with the Elephant in Defecating: Ryo, Junno, Shige, Kame, Koyama, Jin, Yamapi, Ueda, and Kinki Kids, with appearances by or mentions of other News and KAT-TUN members, Arashi, Tackey & Tsubasa, Toma, and select members of TOKIO and SMAP. Immigration office AU! Yeah, the title kind of threw me off at first, but don't let that stop you! Incredibly hilarious AU. Very strange people attempt to get past these officers and immigrate into JE-land.

Japanese Whispers: Mentions of practically every band pre-2006. The Johnny's Gossip Network plays Telephone. You'll want to be sure you don't have any food or drink in hand when you read this. :|b

shaka lacka boom boom
(alternative title: the one in which Arashi are evil robots programmed to take over the world)
: Kanjani8, Arashi, KAT-TUN, NewS; (Aiba/Toma, Nino/Kame, Koki/Shige, MatsuJun/Koyama, and if you squint, some Pin). Yeah, that title says it all, maybe. XD AU in which Hina and Yoko are mad scientists. This is the good crack, for serious. Also one to avoid drinking while reading. XDD

Lotsa good stuff. ^____^b Please feed the authors, I have to get my act together and comment on the stuff that came out earlier in the challenge posting. Definitely going to have to do some stalking after reveals are up.

So today was the last day of business at the store I manage. So tired. But I still had an art attack after re-reading [livejournal.com profile] waxrose's part 42 in [livejournal.com profile] arashiroadtrip.

Title: Puddlejumping
Fandom: Arashi
Rating: Holding hands under umbrellas
Media: Ink wash, color pencils, markers, micron pens

follow the fake-cut!

Nino rolls his eyes. "That's why I brought this," he answers, handing over a smaller, rainbow-striped umbrella. "Not that I wouldn't love to save you from the big, scary rainclouds, but Satoshi and I are going puddle-jumping, so I think you can find your own way back to the house."

So I was reading the [livejournal.com profile] je_secrets comm, and the comments because I am masochistic perhaps, it's interesting to see the kind of wankery that people get up to.

And I realized, I am That Kind of Fan. That got into Arashi because of the music.

Yeah, you heard me. XDDD )

Whew, that was long! ^_^;;; So I'm curious. Which are your favorite Arashi songs, and why? I still haven't worked my way through all of Arashi's discography, I think, though I downloaded a lot back when arashianfiles was still up. Discuss! :D

1) Okay, after...five years, I've finally updated my journal theme from the watermelon theme I chose when I first created this account. XDDDD Also added links to posts of interest, for folks looking for the Taiwan trip to see Arashi, or my smashed thumb tales *waves to [livejournal.com profile] 2dong2woon*

[livejournal.com profile] rhythmia [livejournal.com profile] rhythmia [livejournal.com profile] rhythmia

2) And I went through my journal and pulled out stuff, (ehehe, the impetus for this was my [livejournal.com profile] fivesomeaday fic), and created a fanworks comm for myself. So One Piece (the first and only fandom so far to get me to do fanart) and Arashi (first and only fandom so far to get me to write fanfic) have entries there. [livejournal.com profile] loonyfruit! ^___^

3) It is raining. Please let it rain more, droughts are no fun. Though sideways rain is a bit scary. o.o

4) DBSK on SMAP X SMAP is seriously hilarious. Also it's crazy how I can understand maybe 80-85% of the dialogue and maybe 90% of what's actually happening. Rather excited about Music Station with Arashi and DBSK on at the same time. Come on, fandom!

Pfffffft. *dies giggling*

Kinda awesome. Heee, so what do you think? Is Obama a Gary Stu?

This is sort of for my personal log (since my memory sucks sometimes) and for the amusement and edification of all bystanders watching this car wreck. XD Written sort of in flowchart/bulletpoint style, because I'm trying to wean myself from writing humongous endless paragraphs. :P Also a note: I'm not that stalkery, really! I'm just trying to be complete in my links, and to see if I can lure anyone of you darlings into my fandoms. XDDDDD

~*~ So I'm somewhere between a fandom butterfly and a fandom wolf; I'll change fandoms every so often but I'll keep them for a long time and go back to them from time to time. For my purposes, I'm tracing this as far back as when I got into Stargate: Atlantis fandom two and a half years ago (fall 2005) which I blame entirely on [livejournal.com profile] yaviasad. It's adventuring! In Space! With Pseudoscience and Gay Gay Subtext! That and the strong sense of Team feeling completely pulled me in.

~*~> And what do I do in a fandom? Search out the good fanfic, of course. The marvelous thing about SGA fandom is that writers and artists have flocked to it from lots of other fandoms, so there's almost a surfeit of riches in terms of amazing stuff to read, great art to giggle or sigh over, podfic, and so forth. In my bouncing around, I landed on the lj of [livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine, a hilarious person who recommends fics, fanvids, manga series, lots of things. Her recs are so fun (and funny) to read! About the middle post of this tag in July or August 2006 was at the top when I found her in September, which launched me into another fandom.

~*~> Hikaru no Go! ([livejournal.com profile] erjika will tell you that I'm always the last to get into a fandom, because when I found this one I remembered some of the art I'd seen as the header on her blog. About, oh, six or seven years ago. ^^;;; It's a series about a boy who is possessed by a thousand-year-old ghost so he can play Go, an ancient strategy game. But really, it's about how this boy Hikaru meets a Go-obsessed twelve-year-old named Akira, gets him as a rival, develops passion for something, and grows up. (It's neat the way this manga covers time, by the time it's over they're about sixteen/seventeen). There's heated rivalry! Silly ghosts! Angst! Did I mention rivalry to the point that they're practically married?

~*~> Through this fandom I found [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli, whose Hikaru no Go fic, among other fandoms, can be found here and also on her lj. You know how there are some authors whose writing you'll read no matter what, regardless of fandom, because their writing is just that good/entertaining/captivating/alive? From her HnG fic I started browsing her other stuff, and the top couple of posts on her lj include You Can't Help But Grow Hot, fic of Arashi + concert high. I had no idea who these people were, but the immediacy of the writing, the way they felt concrete and real, the nakamaship and team feeling all just pulled me in.

\/\/-> And here's where I take a little detourand I cut because it's already getting long and afoiajfljroagor )

~*~> So yes, that there's the path of my doom. These five guys are hilarious, dorky, really care about each other even (especially) when whacking each other for saying dumb/pervy/ridiculous things, smoking hot, and even though they're definitely not the most talented singers and dancers of the talent agency, for sure they've got a lot of heart. (And are very, very entertaining. XD)

Maybe if I'm bored I'll insert a helpful flowchart. ^_^ I hope you loves were entertained and possibly intrigued, but I'll settle for amused at my expense while I flail over boys dancing over rainbows. With sparkles and shiny.

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] sasori_katana, answer the questions with fandoms. ^_^

If I ever had flings like these with real people it would probably not end well XD )

*is revived*

*dies again*


Harry Potter and the Eagle of Truthiness. HP/Stephen Colbert 4EVA!!

So...is there anyone on my flist who happens to read fic in the Bleach and Ouran High School Host Club fandoms? I'd like to read some good fic in these fandoms, but I'm too scared to trawl ffn.net and I'm not sure where else to look. Recommendations please?

Promo vids for the next season of Stargate, a link:


The Sheppard one, the first one, is awesomely funny. I saved it, opened, and at first thought I had saved the completely wrong thing. But yeah- just watch them. *dies giggling*

Also, a rec, because lately (this includes the last semester of college when I was procrastinating on thesis by diving into SGA fandom) I've been into the AUs. I've always been a fan of AUs for whatever fandom I'm in though. :P Anyhow: Atlantis as a publishing house. Insane, yes, and some of the characterisations made me go "huh, really?" but they just fit so well in the way that SGA seems to work so well for AUs. Anyhoo, the story here is The Continuing Adventures of Ronon Dex, Senior Editor by [livejournal.com profile] lalejandra, and if you go to her journal you can find the bits and pieces of other stories in that universe. I really enjoyed the choices she made with the characters (Ronon! Lorne! Stacks!!(glee)), and the way she writes in sort of choppy vignette bits. YMMV, of course.
