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~~

Please check out the satellite pictures of Japan after the tsunami here. You can move the slider in the middle of each set of photos to get a better picture of the before/after situation. It's harrowing. I feel like I owe Japan a lot for bringing me Arashi and manga and sushi and many, many other wonderful things, so it's really distressing to see all the damage they've sustained in the past few days.

If you haven't heard yet, there are a lot of fandom charity events going around LJ to help out Japan, most notably, [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. I don't know which organizations are the "best ones" to donate to, because I don't think Japan has made an official statement on their need for international as of yet. However, Google has provided a direct way to donate to the Japanese Red Cross here. Adding to that, if you'd like to donate your time/money via a fundraiser, [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on has a very active one going on here; my thread is here (I've listed other fandoms I can write for, so it definitely doesn't have to be Arashi-related).

And, as ever, there are still relief efforts being made in Haiti, New Zealand, and the Gulf (oil spill), so contributions to any of those areas are important, too (more links in this post).

Probably your f-list is filled with these kind of posts, so I'm sorry if you're already familiar with those communities. Mainly I just wanted to share that NYTimes link.


UPDATE: FIC LIST and PROGRESS (in order of people contacting me -- but since most of you guys pretty much donated around the same time, I'm sort of writing whatever I have the most ideas for at the time)

Christopher Nolan, I concede. I love your work. I love it so much that I wanted to be able to make it. I used to think that with a little hard work, a lot of patience, and my own imagination, I could one day write as brilliant a story as you can.

Today, I have been humbled.


WHO WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THIS MOTHERFUCKING MOVIE WITH ME BECAUSE I HAVE THINGS TO SAY

YOU BET YOUR SHIT THERE'S SPOILERS IN HERE. WATCH THE MOVIE, THEN COME BACK. I'LL STILL BE EAGER TO TALK ABOUT IT, I *PROMISE* )

[EDIT] Some good links to share:
1. Some explanations for the movie to clear up general questions (of course many theories are conflicting): one (some quick and dirty answers; multiple theories), two (quite lengthy and gives a good overview about the entire premise and characters), three (very well-written meta look on the entire film and its real purpose). Oh, and this, a Q and A session with Dileep Rao (Yusuf) about his answers to Inception's questions.
2. Hans Zimmer playing "Time" live at the premiere of Inception. Seriously: shivers.
3. A really cool minimalistic Inception poster. This artist's movie posters are all really great eye candy.
4. A 19-page comic that acts as an immediate prequel to the events of the movie. You can download it or view it online!
5. For the lulz. BBUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHH
6. Perfect.

SUPERFRESHWK
weekly prompts encouraging gratuitous arashi comment fic


The honest truth is that I'm not good at short fic guys, but I'm eager to get better! Will you join me to remark on my progress, aka. laugh at my attempts? Aw yiss you know it's gonna be a good time.

Pic unrelated!

(So bitchin' ugly.)


PS. While drawing this I was wavering between "so bitching ugly" and "so doggone ugly" and in the end I chose the swear word; I now regret my decision. I think "doggone" was the better pun. Why you needed to know this? That is a mystery to me too.
PPS. Guys, here is an amazing, wonderful, beautiful Arashi fic that I am so glad that I took the time to read. If you'd like to read it too, that would be awesome. :')

THANK YOU FOR WINNING YOUR MATCH, GERMANY!! I have nothing against Uruguay and they played a really great game, but the thing was that I bet Germany would win for no particular reason, so [livejournal.com profile] harioto bet Uruguay, and she said if I won she would draw me something, and do you see where this is going.

Arashi/300 crossover. Yes, you read right.

TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL YES

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
