Arashi (and others) fandom master post

A list of fandom things! This doesn't include my capspams of television in English; those can be found through the tags. This is almost entirely Arashi, but I am also including any other Johnny's, as well as other people I love from dramas or jpop or kpop, should that arise. (I did include my post with caps of Takeuchi Yuko on Flashforward, as the outermost limit of this list.)

Not on this list but also from my fingers: folderdropping, dramas, master post here; sparklehole, Arashi concerts with topazera, master post here and at ohnobaited.

All of these links lead to pictures, and a lot of them lead to LARGE pictures. As time goes by I get better at resizing. I also get better at crediting, but if I fail so reprehensibly somewhere that the original scanner is outraged, I am more than willing to fix it, through resizing or better credit or whatever. Every cap here is mine unless stated otherwise, although I don't care at all if you use them for anything, but NO SCAN IS MINE, ever.

I'm going to sign up for Nino Exchange again this year! I'd be delighted if any of you joined me. ♥

5 x 5 (x kino)

Kino and I are doing an exchange of posts! The topic: top five favorites in order but only accurate to this one day of choosing so no pressure..... Arashi solos! By member. <3

Kino's post!

Any solo they've performed in concert counts. For me, I am choosing ONLY by the song. If I did it by performance, it'd be a completely different list, and the same goes for if I did it by song and performance(s) added together.

(I fully expect not all of the links will work, but you can google as well as I can and probably better. I was far too lazy to make the covers the same size or anything classy like that.)

If this were on tumblr and I thought I could get anyone to do it, I'd tag people, so... if you have any inclination to do this yourself, please do so and link me to it!!! <3<3

5 4 3 2 1Collapse )

I consider ALL of these songs (and more, fjldksfjkals, so hard to choose!) treasures, and I will keep ALL of them forever. ♥♥♥♥♥

Weekly-ish Arashi watching!

Here are some caps of Arashi things I've watched in the last week(-ish)!

In watching order, roughly, and just whatever caps I happened to take. The unfinished ones at the bottom are ones I'm still in the middle of watching. <3 (I am really not very good at watching things straight through, even when I adore the thing. It gets so I watch things over several days sometimes, but it works for me.)

ARASHI.

Jun and Ohno run around a castle town to try and win their princess's heart! Mago Mago Arashi 70, 2006.09.02, 14 capsCollapse )

Arashi work in a ryokan and provide A++ hospitality to their guests! (WHERE ARE MY CAPS OF AIBA AND MOMOCLO; I KNOW I HAD SOME.) Arashi ni Shiyagare SP, 2015.01.01, 13 capsCollapse )

The finale of the air band competition, and the premiere of Fight Song! G no Arashi 28, 2006.04.19, 12 capsCollapse )

Arashi present up-and-coming innovations for 2015 while looking ridiculously beautiful! 2015 Sakidori Hakurankai Arashi Yohou, 2015.01.03, 41 capsCollapse )

Nino and Ohno become grandkids, ride around in a horse-drawn trolley, and make food of dubious quality! (Also Nino wears a tank top all episode so there are lots of caps with no purpose other than that.) Mago Mago Arashi 73, 2006.09.23, 33 capsCollapse )

An adaptation of an Agatha Christie book I love; a television show in which there can be fifteen people on-screen and I still stare at one small idol off to the side! UNFINISHED, Orient Kyuukou Satsujin Jiken SP part one, 2015.01.11, 4 capsCollapse )

Arashi play games and have faces! UNFINISHED, VS Arashi SP, 2015.01.03, 10 capsCollapse )

THE END.

Also today I went to Goodwill and in the foreign language section I found a Japanese magazine from 2000 and inside are pictures of Arashi I've never seen before (I don't think??) and it has a five member crosstalk and a whole section where they answer all these questions and IT COST ME 99 CENTS AND I ALMOST CRIED IN GOODWILL, CRIED OF GREAT JOY. The end. ♥

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

(TIME TO SIGN UP FOR WHITE DAY.)

(I HAVEN'T YET BUT I GUARANTEE I'M GOING TO, I JUST LIKE TO DRAW IT OUT AND THINK OF A MILLION RIDICULOUS/LY GREAT PAIRINGS.)

Sep. 7th, 2014

Seattle! New home! Exhaustion. Sleep.

Sep. 5th, 2014

Missoula, Montana~ Montana takes forever to drive across but it's certainly beautiful. The internet in this inn is crap but this is our last night in a hotel, because after about 8 hours of driving tomorrow, we'll reach Seattle and my new home. ♥ (Due to crap internet, all emails will be responded to later, with apologies. ♥)

Sep. 5th, 2014

Now in Sundance, Wyoming. Irritable and tired and going to bed~

Sep. 3rd, 2014

One day of driving complete, with three to go. Mama, Yoshi, and I are in Minnesota. I don't think Yoshi has ever been in a hotel room before and she is flabbergasted.

Aug. 27th, 2014

So, I'm moving to Seattle! For real now, hooray. We found a place to rent at last, and my mom and I are driving across the country together to my new home. We set off a week from tomorrow!

I have one million things to do, none of which I want to do, hooray! But that is short-term thinking. I'm doing those things in order to move to Seattle in order to be with people I love.

(Bleh, they are still terrible things.)

ALSO YOSHI GETS TO COME TOO. <3<3<3

ALSO ALSO... after I arrive, not even two weeks after moving in, I am flying to Hawaii to see Arashi in concert.

(I can't even try to process all these feelings so I'm not trying yet. There's enough on my plate right now with MOVING TO SEATTLE.)

On Saturday at 3pm I still thought I would literally never see an Arashi concert. I have no plans to go to Japan and don't make enough money to pay for shady tickets or whatever anyway, at least not without regretting it afterward when I have no savings at all anymore.

BUT THEY'RE COMING TO THE U.S. AND OPENED TICKETS TO NON-FANCLUB MEMBERS (FROM NORTH AMERICA, AT LEAST) AND IT'S MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE SO..... SO..... before 5pm I had tickets and a plane ticket and Top and I were working on booking a hotel room. Which we did, and now she and astrangerenters and I have a cab to haul us across the island to the concert venue and and and

And I can't really think about it yet, honestly. ♥

I STILL HAVE SO MUCH TO DO BEFORE I CAN THINK ABOUT ANYTHING BUT MOVING. (ALSO KITTOEX, I GUESS, YES, I SHOULD DO THAT ALSO, YES.) And emotionally I think I need to just ... let going to Hawaii (TO.... TO----------- TO SEE--) sit in my brain for a few weeks, now that I've gotten the essential travel things settled.

I'm done at the gym and Friday is my last day working at the library. I need more hours in the day to do things, sigh.

♥!

whoops

I'm feeling quite sunny about fandom right now, and especially fandom on lj. ♥

I think part of it is that since I'm done working at the gym (mostly, complicatedly), I have more time and a ton more energy, so I've been throwing myself into doing things. jpnheroines is something that is a slow burn but already so beloved to me (though I feel like there are things I should be doing with it that I'm not? But whatever, there is no SHOULD here), and I've done a rainbowfill (after forever) and written my first Aiba/Sho (SUPER FUN TO WRITE; I AM WEIRDLY SURPRISED EVEN THOUGH I'VE ALWAYS LOVED THEM), and then started doing a fic meme... all in all I've written (and posted) nearly 20,000 words this month, which is a lot for me (and that's not counting the almost 10,000 word fic I wrote for kinoface which ... is certainly a fic all right!!).

And I don't know, doesn't it feel like things are kind of livening up? Nino's birthday was so great! There was so much fic, so many posts of icons, so many new subbed things to celebrate! And recent new subbing communities, so exciting!! Really, I'd be excited even if they're no good, because it reminds me that as much as fandom has moved away from lj, look at all these things that are still here. I have a feed set up (through lj, like all my feeds) for the Arashi fandom tag at AO3, and I'd say 95% of the things that I get from it are also on my flist from fic comms on lj. And raws (DSS <3<3<3) and subbing and such, they're still so centered here (okay, at least subbing, and I'm just out of the loop about other places for raws because I am oblivious and lazy). And it's not just lj that I'm feeling sunny about: all of these things show how many people are actively loving Arashi, too.

AND I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED READING NINO EXCHANGE AND I'M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

Otherwise, let's see: stopped working at the gym (mostly, complicatedly), have lots of weird feelings about it. It's hot and humid here, complain complain. Looks like I might be moving to Seattle in early August, but every time the plan is discussed it's a little different, so who knows.

OH ALSO, FANDOM TO ONE SIDE TO FOCUS ON SOMETHING TRUE AND BEAUTIFUL: ARASHI IS THE BEST. AND MAKE ME SO HAPPY. AND I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MY LOVE DVD IS IN MY GRUBBY HANDS SO I CAN CRY AND LAUGH AND LOVE THEM TO THE POINT OF FEELING A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT IT (FOR ABOUT HALF A SECOND UNTIL THEY MAKE ME FORGET EVERYTHING BUT JOY AGAIN).

Yes. This informative update brought to you by: being late to work. (!!)

IT'S MY FIVE YEAR ARASHI ANNIVERSARY. Five years ago today, I clicked on the wrong video on youtube and opened up Arashi's Sakura Sake pv. I love them more than ever. ♥♥♥

In celebration, some caps of a Mago I watched recently! (... Yes, I'm still working my way through Mago. I just love it so much, and it's not like it's going anywhere. :D)

Mago Mago Arashi #68, where Nino and Sho go make summer vacation memories with their grandparents for the day! Lots of fun and skin and glorious faces. <3<3

ichinichi mago ni narimasu!!Collapse )

AND NOW I'M GOING TO GO EAT CHOCOLATE CAKE ON MY ARASHI PLATE. (HAVE I MENTIONED I HAVE AN ARASHI PLATE BECAUSE I HAVE AN ARASHI PLATE AND I'M GOING TO EAT CHOCOLATE CAKE OFF OF IT NOW.)
HELLO, HELLO, FLIST. Hello, it is Valentine's Day!

I AM REALLY FREAKING HAPPY TO BE SINGLE, HOORAY.

I am happy to live alone! I am happy to put myself first! I am happy that all my free time is my own!

I LOVE BEING SINGLE MORE EVERY SINGLE (FKDJS) YEAR.

Additionally, to anyone who celebrates in any way, from married to together to open to monogamous to flirty to happily single to looking to whatever, Happy Valentine's Day!

(My snotnoses made me some really cute Valentine's, too. :D)

(If there were a day like this about pregnancy/having kids, I could write one million words of gratitude about not being pregnant/having kids. MAYBE I'LL DO IT ANYWAY SOMETIME, BECAUSE MY GRATITUDE IS BOUNDLESS.)

DRAMA FINISHING CHALLENGE 2014
Come join us and knock a drama off your list!
@folderdropping



We're doing this again this year! It starts tomorrow. :D I am excited to watch as many drama episodes as I can stuff into my days. I am also excited to fiddle with my tickers, fdjslfsajk, and to see what dramas other people watch~ Come join if you're interested! ♥
WRITING MY WHITE DAY SIGNUP, WOOOOO. It's the most wonderful time of the year~

AND NOW TO BED

Meme via nicefinalbeam! ♥ (Though I haven't yet responded to her post because I am writing in this in a hurry because I have early snotnoses tomorrow, sigh.) Also: hi, new friends. <3<3

Marriage: Ohno. He's just so accepting a person, and needs a lot of alone time, as I do as well, but also has experience not minding people clinging onto him, which I do sometimes? I'd feel comfortable being myself around him, snuggle with him a lot, but be given (and give) space when either of us needed it.

Lover: Aiba. He would just be so much fun, fjldsfkdjs. So open and playful and beautiful and giving.

Friend: Jun. Ugh, Jun would be such a good friend! All considerate and generous and wonderful.

Father Brother: Sho. Though I wouldn't want him to be too much older than me, I think! Where we stand now is about perfect in terms of age. He'd be protective, but fun, and we'd be more like friends as we became adults.

Stranger: Nino. And by stranger I mean: a stranger I meet in a bar and bang in the bathroom.

Anyone nicefinalbeam didn't hit, I tag now, should you choose to accept it. ♥

Aug. 9th, 2013

1. Today I made nikujaga! Considering I had never peeled a potato before today, I expected very little, but it was delicious.

PictureCollapse )

2. I am making a vow, right here and right now, only to watch television (of the non-Arashi variety, like dramas or US tv) that I have stored on my external hard drive (aka the Rock) until September 1st. Reason: the Rock is 99% full! I like to hoard things up for future watching, but right now I need to prioritize freeing up some space. So until the month is through, I won't be watching dramas on dramafever or downloading new things to watch, because I have plenty as it is and I'm going to clear some of it out. VOW: MADE. ... Good timing, because now the Rock claims to be 100% full, whoops.

3. Of the first seasons of shows I have downloaded, do any of you have opinions on any of these? Beauty and the Beast, Arrow, Last Resort, Life of Crime, Nashville, Crossing Lines? I mean, I think I intend to try all of them, but I knew one to be particularly good, like I might watch it fairly quickly... that'd be good to know!

4. I finally watched the (just; I'd already watched the Johnny's debut medley--) Arashi performances from The Music Day!! AHHHHH. Okay, Endless Game was excellent in all ways, BUT THEN THEY WORE THOSE SPARKLY COLOR-CODED OUTFITS WITH THE ENDLESS GAME PAINTED-ON BLACK PANTS AND THEY DID A.RA.SHI AND LOVE SO SWEET!!!! ... Ahem. It is quite possible that I had happy tears all over my face, okay. I also watched two G no Arashi episodes and a Mago, so it has been a day filled with loving Arashi with all my heart. ♥
