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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 )

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT FANDOM DAY TODAY. SHUT UP I'M GONNA TELL YOU ABOUT IT

1. I was persuaded to sign up for [livejournal.com 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

IF ANY OF YOU GUYS ARE IN SHERLOCK FANDOM NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO TELL ME SO I CAN PULL YOU CLOSE AND LOVE YOU

4. Finally, finally seem to have made it to the downhill slide of [livejournal.com 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.

I got a twitter, here it is: https://twitter.com/ruderoadshows

Follow me if you like! I mean, I'm not very good at keeping on top of LJ, so no guarantees with twitter, but lots of people have encouraged me to get one and for a long time I dragged my heels about this since I was sure the concept of "having stuff to tweet about" was lost on me, but then I thought, "why are you being such an old fart and avoiding twitter? Next thing you know, you'll be complaining about how kids these days don't appreciate Pokemon properly or how current pop music really isn't as catchy as it was ten years ago." Then I realized I've thought both of these things before and next thing you know, BAM twitter account!

If I don't have anything interesting to tweet about, I'm planning to lie. Just a heads up.

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 [livejournal.com profile] font (for her winning [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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

MY KINGDOM FOR AN EASY WAY TO COMPILE ALL OF ARASHI'S ACTIVITIES FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS AND ORGANIZE THEM BY DATE, SHOW, SUBJECT MATTER, LEVEL OF GENERAL INTEREST, NUMBER OF SKINSHIP DEMONSTRATIONS, NUMBER OF TIMES OHNO SPEAKS, AND "eng sub" OPTION AT THE SIDE. is this too much to ask, honestly

I have exams/final projects due this coming Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, oh my goodness, this is horrid. Then right afterwards I need to start working hardcore on my [livejournal.com profile] kpop_olymfics entry, which is due way soon, way sooner than I anticipated, and ugh, what is the matter with me! Every time I enter a fic contest I end up thinking of a huge plot that I never have enough time to write properly, and then I just end up scrapping the whole idea and writing another shorter fic in a totally different direction, entirely within the week of the deadline. I tried hard not to do it this time, but alas. ALAS. Well, we'll see what happens, but my confidence about being able to pull the idea off now is... hrm, shall we say, questionable. My face right now is like this :G EXACTLY. (It's a vomiting face?)

(ps. [livejournal.com profile] font, if you're reading this, I'm still working on both your [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fics! T___T Endless apologies for the delay.)

Well despite what I may complain about, the point of this post was to thank the four anons who gave me those Frank v-gifts! I don't know who you are (well, I have hunches for two of you), so I thought I'd just make a quick thank-you-very-much post about it, why not! I do what I want on my journal. I'm not even wearing a shirt right now because it's hot! I'm a total rebel without a cause. HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT, EVERYONE.

Okay but here, in gratitude, have a ridiculous thing I drew just now because I'm avoiding studying! I have no explanation for it, I just had this urge to draw Jay with a pokeball, so I did. No I'm not on drugs, but thank you for asking.

SO, UM, I WROTE SOME 2PM CHATS? And they actually look like chats! Gmail chats. I have no idea why it took me so long to figure out how to press that printscreen button, but there you go. IQ of a fucking rock. It's too late for me to go back and edit all the Arashi chats I wrote for Death Ray, but I'm pretty sure I'll still be writing Arashi chats again so they will likely be in this better format too! Unless you guys hate this format, in which case, you have to tell me or I'm just gonna stay on my high horse and giggle to myself because I finally managed to use the computer effectively.

I'm being generous with the word "effectively" here.

Okay some quick things:

1. [livejournal.com profile] je_holiday: HOLY SHIT I AM FREAKING OUT BECAUSE I DON'T THINK I WILL BE ABLE TO FINISH IN TIME. AAAAAAAAAH. Okay okay let's calm down. Fic or bust! Give me fic or give me death! Let them eat fic! oh my god what am i even talking about, clearly the pressure is getting to me

2. Arashi: On a more serious note... Guys, I've been lurking around that Johnny's fic anon meme and it seems that there are people who have the impression that I've defected over to Korea, land of K-pop, and will never write Arashi again. This isn't true okay! I love K-pop but I love Arashi too and will continue to write for them! It's just taking me a while. I'm sorry! I was really, really shocked to learn this, but I think I've disappointed a lot of people with my absence from fandom, and for that I will never be able to apologize enough. Thank you everyone who's been patient with me. I'll work harder. ♥

3. School and everything associated with it: Still killing me softly. Let's not talk about it.

Here are the chats! As with most things that come out of my brain, they are not meant to be taken seriously. Arashi friends, if you want to read some Arashi chats that are actually LEGITIMATELY hilarious, I recommend [livejournal.com profile] panpipe's here, which will forever define the genre of chat!fic for me, okay. Man, how creepy do I sound right now. I-I have her friended on Dreamwidth okay! Which I never use OTL

ANYWAY ENOUGH DILLY-DALLYING:
Chats! With extra Taec! )
