Good morning, lovely people! :D

After ten minutes of deliberation, I've decided to do Something Stupid. :D

I'm going to fill all of the Smut Meme prompts.

I figure since this is the first year in...maybe five years? that I won't be doing Yuletide, and with hols finished, I really don't have any writing obligations (other than fic for [livejournal.com profile] spurious for being my kind and diligent Fic Index Overlord and a ficlet for [livejournal.com profile] ohmiya_sg for subbing Things That Are of the Magic), it's not an entirely insane goal. Porn is fun to write, and I've always looked back on the first Smut Meme with a kind of, Aww, if I'd filled them all that would have been marvelous.

So I'm gonna do it for this one. :D

I'll leave prompting open for another twenty-four hours, and then whatever number I have tomorrow morning will be the number of fills I'll be aiming to finish. I'm not putting a deadline on this because exchanges gave me enough stress XD but I might probably have [livejournal.com profile] spurious and [livejournal.com profile] fuyukoi stabbing me in the face occasionally to finish it, so it'll get done.


On a separate note, Russia is preparing to pass a bill that would "make it illegal for any person to write a book, publish an article or speak in public about being gay, lesbian or transgender." I signed this petition nine hours ago when the number of signatures was 25,000~ and it's already reached 80,400~ as I'm typing this. Please not only sign this but spread the news, too. (And now that I've finished the post, it's at 81,500~.)


...Porn and social justice in one post. .........Hm. I feel like this isn't quite random enough.


Hey, look, That Guy with the Glasses reviewing the new Twilight helicopter crash! :D

And also, gorgeous Fight for the Eight icons. That's Subaru in eyeliner. (:DDDDDDD)

Aaaand Takki and Tsubasa drinking champagne in bed.


The shot where Takki actually gets to sit on the bed with Tsubasa must be in Takki's wallet.

Happy Tuesday, everyone! :D

ETA: Juuust to clarify! Smut Meme will close on 11/23, 9:30AM Japan time.

“A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.”

-Stephan Hoeller



“We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today. I don’t think it was, and I would advise you not to wait ten years before admitting today was great. If you’re hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.”

Earlier today, I stumbled on a section about Osaka in the book I'm reading (Travelers' Tales: Japan). Because of Kanjani∞, I've become interested in this city whose appeal is so strong that they've dedicated more than three of their singles to its glory. So I was surprised when the reviews I got from people who'd been to Osaka didn't have the same flamboyant enthusiasm. My Japanese calligraphy teacher had the most eloquent reaction when I told her I want to visit Osaka someday:

"EHH? ... NANDE?"

At the time, I didn't have a good answer to that. ("I like their men," though true, doesn't have quite the educated ring to it that I was hoping for.)

So I decided to do more research and found that the vast wealth of printed knowledge about Japan is cut largely in Tokyo's favor. Fortunately, all I could find said pretty much the same thing anyway: Osaka is an ugly city, but it has a rich personality. That's the kind of thing you read and wince. "Nice personality," after all, is universal for "let's stay friends." Still, I couldn't believe that Kanjani∞ of all people would put up with living in a bland, ugly city unless it had something else to its name.

What I read in the following excerpt drew a second conclusion that resparked my interest: Osaka has its rich personality because it's ugly.

Osaka is an independent city with natives to match. While contractors and investors beautified Tokyo, Osakans dug in their heels to keep their city exactly the same. And from that, they held onto the historic character that defines them today.

This is only what I've come to understand after reading a few books and the testimonials of pop stars. I hope to write a more personal account someday after visiting or even living there myself.

Until then, enjoy the writing of someone who has been there!
