primroseshows: made by me (nino: rock it mothafuckas)
Guys, I finished a big paper recently and I thought I would celebrate by procrastinating on my next big paper (AKA MY THESIS?!?!?!) by writing some Arashi fic! WHOOOOOO

So I'm 20K into this [ profile] help_japan fill that I'm really excited about. I'm really nervous about it too, because in terms of writing style, I think it's kind of different from anything else I've written, but not in any way that I think is obvious to anyone but me. Explaining this change would be really weird and confusing for you and I both, so let's just say that I'm pleased with how it's developing, mostly (as much as I can be without being overly optimistic, I guess?), and can't wait to finish it and post it! This finishing business is going to take a bit more time, unfortunately, but I've still got a lot more story to get down and I really want it to turn out well, so I'm really spending a lot of time on it. The prompt was very nice and I hope I can do it justice, so.

IN THE MEANTIME my hero in life [ profile] harioto continues to shower me with joy I don't deserve by drawing me amazing things like Nino and Sho as Crowley and Aziraphale of Good Omens, respectively. In exchange, I promised her I'd write her a little something, and here is that something.

So obviously this was meant to be a Good Omens crossover, but I kind of butchered it??? There's barely any Good Omens lore in it, other than it's about this Antichrist kid but ACTUALLY about the relationship between an angel and a demon, neither of whom are very good at their jobs. Hey, if you're looking for a quality fic blog, please allow me to point you in the opposite direction.

oh man no guarantees any of the last 1,000 words will make any sense because it's 2am in the morning SSSSHHHH just go with it please )

Hi everyone, I have something to figure out for a fic that would take me more than 10 minutes to google the answer for, so as always I turn to you, my intellectual superiors, if anyone is still passing by this LJ! (Because I'm still here too!)

QUESTION: Can you name three female Japanese celebrities that you can see Jun dating? It would be ideal if they were all a similar height, too. If you can only think of two people, then for the third person, please make up a very nice female Japanese name that sounds like a celebrity's?

Any help would be appreciated!

In exchange, here's a snippet of one of my..... numerous WIPs (it's not the one that the above question pertains to though):


PS. How is it that another school year is coming to a close? This shit is ridiculous. Something is wrong with our planet's gravity. I simply refuse to believe that days, months, and years pass by this quickly. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME I ACTUALLY FINISHED A FIC OH MY GOD
primroseshows: made by me (arashi: celebration)

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a very merry holiday season and are ready for the End of Days! I've got everything I need to survive the apocalypse: paranoia, an umbrella, and a diet consisting of nothing but chicken nuggets and Coke so my flesh will taste unsavoury to even the most desperate of people.

Just kidding. Spending some time at home with the parents, sleeping in, and ignoring all matter related to school-life. This will kick me in the ass later, very hard in fact, but have you ever known me to be one of those people who "thinks about the future"? No. Some better people might make some kind of New Year's resolution about this, but I can confidently say that I am not one of those people.

Besides working on [ profile] help_japan fics, I decided to go ahead and write that God!AU that I have previously flirted with here and here. Yes, apparently it's a real "thing" now. A "thing" is a fic that I'm taking seriously. Granted, this doesn't always work out in the fic's favour, but it's better than just leaving the idea to rot in the far, dark corners of my hard drive. HOPEFULLY I DIDN'T JUST JINX MYSELF. DANG.

Anyway, here's the first part of it. It's about ~3,000 words and neither Nino nor Ohno nor Jun have shown up yet. JFC what is the matter with me.

PS: to the Japanese speakers on my f-list, if I use the words Tsuchi, Kaze, Hi, and Mizu, does that mean Earth, Air, Fire, and Water? I'm going from Wikipedia here, but it doesn't hurt to check with the experts. I've never heard the term "Hi" before. :/

feedback is totally welcome; everything's still in its early stages so i'm open to large corrections )

Also!!! I've started writing 2PM again. Well, it's more correct to say that I never exactly stopped, but I've fallen way out of touch with 2PM lately since their Japanese promotions, so I've been doing things less than half-heartedly. This one though, I actually want to finish. Fair warning, it's got Jay in it. And it's about reunions. T___T UGH IDEK GUYS I wanted to write something happy and hilarious and instead this mess came out, which is basically a poorly-disguised way for me to cut open my chest and slam my heart through the laptop screen. ~FEELINGS~ OKAY!!! I've written more than I'm posting, but the rest is very badly developed/paced and I just want to know if people would be interested in reading a story like this or if I should stop entirely and let things lie and am I being terribly cheesy and cliche for wanting a reunion fic and it's not like I haven't let things go, because I have, and don't want to make a "big deal" out of how things turned out since I'm fine with it all but OKAY WHATEVER JUST READ IT IF YOU WANT OR DON'T IDK omg I am terrible and going to shut up now ugh D;

don't get confused; the fic is 2PM-centric, I swear )

One last thing! I haven't pimped this here yet, but my good friend and the very talented [ profile] harioto has one of THE BEST tumblrs ever, and I'm sure you'd agree if you'd care to take a gander here! ARASHI COMICS YOU GUYS!! SO GOOD, SHIT ♥____♥
primroseshows: made by me (nino: a piece of literature)

I'd be writing an Arashi fic right now but I'm feeling decidedly unfunny today, so unfortunately, that train ain't movin'. Which is weird, since Community is a sitcom, so why would I spontaneously write a fic for it instead? Well I can tell you it's certainly not because I'm crushing mad hard on the show and Donald Glover and Danny Pudi and the trifecta of perfection that is Annie-Troy-Abed, okay. Okay?

Rated G; no explicit pairings; Annie, Abed, Troy; 1,500 words; not read through, barely thought out, I regret nothing.

TV shows or people, nothing lasts forever. Aside for Inspector Spacetime I guess. )
primroseshows: made by me (nino: this is my sexy face)
omfg so frustrated with a lot of school stuff right now so i decided to push all that away for a while and write stuff, WHY NOT, I'M ALREADY SCREWED

Remember this ficlet I wrote randomly where Nino and Aiba are gods and Sho's a desperate farmer in way over his head? No? That's okay, because I don't think anyone read it haha. Regardless, I personally thought the idea was very clever, so I randomly wrote another ficlet for it. Like the last one, I made it up as I went along, so it's not as if I have a plot or anything in mind. But omg guys this universe is fun; I might keep on going with it, maybe maybe.

ps if you're gonna read this one, you should read that first link too to know the situation, because it's kind of a continuation

1000 words of Sho on his knees BUT NOT LIKE THAT LOL )

This was a spur-of-the-moment thing. Just an exercise to see if I can actually write "short" fic. Conclusion: not really.

(PS. this is not even read over by me. I basically wrote it and then directly copy+pasted it here. THUMBS UP FOR QUALITY CONTROL!)

Fandom: Arashi
Word count: 1,223
Notes: Warnings for character death. Also warnings for using Western wedding traditions because I'm not really sure how weddings in Japan work and I didn't want to look it up because if given the chance to double-guess myself, I'd end up not posting anything.

this too shall pass )
primroseshows: made by me (sherlock: get used to looking at my back)

1. I was persuaded to sign up for [ profile] beastattack's Mini Bang, and spent quite a bit of the morning watching B2ST videos, and enjoyed them thoroughly. I think I give the impression that I don't know anything about B2ST but I actually sorta do. I mean, I've followed their music from the very beginning -- actually I think Beast is the B2ST is my favourite song of theirs haha -- and know all the member's names and I love Doojoon by default because of his One Day connections and also because of his stupid face and I ADORE Yoseob hardcore and I've even pimped B2ST to my friend who I got into Arashi so YOU KNOW I'M SERIOUS ABOUT THEM. I just. Never watched any of their videos or anything so I don't know them, you know? So I was a bit wary about signing up for the Mini Bang because chances are my fic is going to suck but WHATEVER WHATEVER WHATEVER I LOVE B2ST, u all can deal w it

2. Mark Gatiss is a really, really, really awesome person. Martin Freeman is a really, really, really awesome person. anarmydoctor is a really, really fantastic tumblr. Sherlock is an overwhelmingly amazing show with an even more overwhelmingly amazing fandom.

3. I wrote a short fic on the Sherlock BBC anon meme a few days ago when I was suffering from writer's block for my Arashi Japan fundraiser requests, and I fucking flipped my shit about thirty minutes ago when I went on this Sherlock fic rec tumblr and found that I got rec'd. (Don't know how many of you guys on my f-list read Sherlock fic, but if you're interested, my fill is here! PS. The tumblr in question is this one.) I was seriously freaking out because Sherlock has SO MANY talented authors and epic fics so to be sort of ...acknowledged, I guess, as being part of that, even a little bit, is just -- fjadklfjf;fjdafja;vjvjasf;f T____________T sob


4. Finally, finally seem to have made it to the downhill slide of [ profile] blufox_o7's Arashi fic. Still quite a bit to write, but everything is plotted out (I use that term loosely) now, and it's just a matter of following through. I'm over 20,000 words atm. :| That is a lot of words but that was also part of the request so again I humbly ask you all to d-d-d-deal wi' it.

5. Good mood translates into productivity; wanted to make a 2PM comic but instead this vomit came out. God, I'm sorry everyone.

Also, in real life related news, things are suddenly looking up! I should make another post about this soon, but right now I just want to bask in the joys of fandom. AAAHHHHHHHH~~

Obviously that New Year's resolution I made needs a little more effort. Posting WIPs took a lot more effort than I expected because they are all still long things and long things need to be organized, and that takes time. It felt good to share, but it was also frustrating to me, like, "if this is never getting finished, why am I putting so much effort to post the damn thing at all? It would be easier to just let it gather dust in the back of your own mind." But I don't want that either.

I think the reason that it's taking me so long to write fics these days is that I no longer seem to have the capability to write a "simple" fic. "Simple" meaning a story with one central point to it. Nowadays, I've got to wrap that one central point in this frayed wreck of a plot, layers upon layers of fluff and linked threads and while this is actually what I like doing with a story, I realize that I'm getting pulled down by all of the process and I've still got nothing to show for it. Lack of time is not a good excuse anymore, because I should have learned how to manage my schedule by now (though I haven't, fmlll). I'm not productive, I'm not prolific, and it's driving me crazy that I'm not posting at all anymore. I don't like submitting unfinished fics and I don't like submitting fics I've written that I think are boring, but I feel like by holding myself so strictly, I'm degenerating as a fic writer. I feel like this journal is rotting, and I want it to be fun again. Cast off the shackles of past formality! Experiment! Don't like what you're reading? Tell me about it or click the shit out of that back button, I'm cool with both!

Anyway, all this to say that I'm now adopting a "Hey, why the hell did you write this? -- BECAUSE FUCK YOU, THAT'S WHY" mindset. Still going to post WIPs when I feel like it, but I'm also going to write more new stuff too. Will probably be crap to the nth degree, but hey, maybe I'll finally learn how to write a real drabble.

Hi again~

I realize that I've pretty much stopped updating LJ in recent months. Sorry about this. First year of grad school has been very busy: lab work, TAing, classes, research, lab meetings; keeping myself fed and my apartment tidy is a major undertaking too, haha. My routine these days consists of getting home from school late in the evening and barely get any homework done before I succumb to "a short, one hour nap" and waking up late for first period the next morning, with gross stuff in my mouth because I'd been too lazy to brush the night before. I'm a slow worker, so coupled with school giving me quite a lot of work, time passes more quickly than I can understand and I don't ever seem to get anything done to show for it. I go to school on weekends, too, so there's no respite there.

That being said, I miss LJ like a crazy cat lady whose cats have all been taken away, and I miss all of you guys, and I miss fic LIKE FUCKING FUCK. So classes being over (this doesn't actually affect me a lot as I still go to the lab everyday) and me being a procrastinator (as ever), I thought I'd take some time to do a quick update here, just catch up! And to make sure that my account isn't frozen from inactivity or something. Does LJ do that? ...Let's not find out.

ALSO, for the hell of it, a WIP UPDATE. I like/dislike doing these because I am a paranoid shit so I think they jinx me, but lately I feel the need to prove that yes, I'm still writing things, just... very slowly. >__> The question nowadays is, will I get enough time to finish the fics before I get tired of trying? NOT IF I HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT. IT IS A BATTLE OF ENDURANCE, MY FRIENDS, AND I WILL PROVE TO BE THE VICTOR. I promise they are interesting stories (or at least I think they are, lolol). I've never really been good at posting short, fluffy fics just for the sake of posting them, so I don't think I'd be able to start now. In the meantime, I humbly ask for your patience.


Anyway. I hope all you lovely people are doing well. Good luck with exams if you have them, but otherwise, I wish you a very safe and warm and happy holiday season. ♥

Hey bitch notice that there is not only an engagement in this fic, but an unrelated wedding too. Oh dang are you some sort of restaurant dish or something because you just got served.


primroseshows: made by me (nino+aiba: don't make me come over there)
Yes, it's that time again! Time for me to make my bimonthly "oh sup, still alive guiz" post! Shut up, I've just lead a boring life lately, okay, I had very little to update about.

So I'm currently trying to write my fics for [ profile] font (for her winning [ profile] help_haiti bid) -- yes, they are ten years late in coming, um, I... am very sorry about this. I don't have much of an excuse other than I didn't want the fic to suck, and it would have sucked had I written it while I had other things due, so... yup. Anyway, I'm really trying to get back into Arashi as much as possible right now, so if you guys have any handy links, pics, gifs, etc., that show the group at its recent best (or recent worst), that would be appreciated immensely!

In exchange, here is the basically ALL of the Aiba/Nino fic that I've so far written for [ profile] font which I am now scrapping because it wasn't going in the way I wanted it to. The plot will stay the same, but the style will be different, I think. SO DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS!

Warnings: mentions of sex, lack of proofreading so possibility of lots of typos, oh and did I mention that I am kind of rusty with writing Arashi, sob T________T

So I think my one worthy accomplishment in life has been to introduce one of my best friends to the joy that is Arashi. Okay maybe I can't take all the credit, since she was sort of familiar with JE before and was a NEWS fan, but considering how much I went on and on about Arashi this and Arashi that in my emails to her (guys you would NOT believe how annoying I was), I like to think that I had a little to do with with it. /BRAGGING

WAIT ignore that html tag, I'm not actually done bragging yet.

She drew me fanart you guys! For The Magician!! She is an AMAZING artist and I am so lucky to know her and she is so nice to me and omg ;______; <33333

I need to get back to writing. I need to, so badly. I really want to. I don't know what's keeping me back. I think it's half laziness and half lack of motivation. I'm out of touch with Arashi; I've really been obsessed with k-pop lately, and I've started writing some fic for that, but even writing that takes a lot of energy.

I went through my writing folder about a week ago, and I ended up getting so pissed at myself because there were so many fics I'd started and just gave up on, and so many good plot lines that I never finished developing, or I had finished developing but just never bothered to put into fic.

This following bit, for example, I thought was going to be my next chapter fic, but I stopped writing it because it involved too much OC backstory and I hate writing OCs. But when I was reading through it, I was disappointed that I would never get to share it. So I'll do it now. I won't put up all of it, because a lot of the parts are complete crap, but I really liked the beginning at least. I felt it had a lot of potential, and was a fun start to what hopefully would be a fun fic.

Some of you may recognize this from that "one-sentence WIP" meme I did eons ago.

so if you're interested! )

EDIT: now with more parts! )

Well! It took me three got-dang tries to make the index, but eventually I did it! DW. You have met your match. Your very incompetent match.

Whoo! Fic community! This is like my first big step into become an adult in fandom. S-shut up! Let me bask in the moment.

Everything links back to LJ right now, but I'll be posting new fics there too! (And at livejournal, of course.) Please feel free to join!! :D

primroseshows: made by me (Default)
So are you all familiar with the amazing [ profile] aatash's Detective!AU in which Ohno and Nino are professional sleuths and Sho suffers by association? If you aren't you better get on this shit, for reals, then perhaps you would like to be? What kind of question is that; of course you would like to be.

Anyway, I'm kind of majorly in love with this universe so I wrote a prequel!fic for it. Yes, yes, I know, I know. Exactly.

Title: To Catch A Thief
Rating: PG
Characters: Sho, Nino, Ohno
Genre: General
Length: ~3,000 words
Summary: Sho meets an interesting person at the bar one night. He sort of regrets it.

You know my methods, Watson. )

Heeeey. Okay! So here was my entry for the drabble contest over at [ profile] ohmiya. I got last place guys, and I have to say I deserved it, lol. I pretty much wrote the drabbles in less than an hour, just to beat the deadline. OTL OTL OTL. I felt really ashamed of myself as I was submitting, but there! Lesson learned, I suppose! Also all of the entries were super good so even had I spent more time on them I am sure I wouldn't have won. also maybe i was kind of venting my RL frustrations through the fic uuuugh sorry about that D: D: D: someone should kick me

Rating: G
Prompts: If either Ohno/Nino were never in Arashi and they meet (I picked both); Ohno talking to Haru (Nino’s dog); marriage counseling (although I sort of took liberties with this one).
Notes: the three drabbles are connected as one story.
Words: 100 each.

Title: This Might Have Been Easier Without the Death Ray (6/7, 7/7)
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry / I I I first / For you for you for you I fell / fell fell fallen baby
I mean. SORRY GUYS. I fell of the face of the earth for a while there, but you might be pleased to know that I am back and still retain function in all of my limbs. Just so you know, this last chapter nearly killed me. I rewrote it a total of seven times (not all of it, but most of it) before I finally found a plot I was happy with; you are reading attempt number eight. If you perhaps gain a semblance of happiness from this chapter, I would be so thankful, like, "oh my goodness my baby is alright" level of thankful. I think maaaaybe I will take a break from writing long things for a while. Can you blame me?! (A: yes.)

EDIT: GOD FLIST STOP BEING SO FUCKING AWESOME WHILE PEOPLE ARE AWAY OKAY, SOME OF US CAN'T HANDLE IT need to comment on so many things orz orz will have to wait for another time orzzzz

Well here it is, please enjoy!

Notes: Sorry this is a bit late guys, I got stuck in a wormhole and had to fight my way back to present day from the Mesozoic era. Also sorry if there are any glaring errors; I made a few changes here and there but I'm not at my most alert right now, I could have written about dinosaurs for all I know. Why am I thinking about dinosaurs so much.
