In case anyone doubted my capacity for awesome life choices:

♥ I SAW TACKEY & TSUBASA THREE TIMES IN A ROW LAST WEEK ♥


As [livejournal.com profile] spurious says, "This is your life, these are your choices."

I regret nothing. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I've loved T&T since I got into fandom in 2007, but I wasn't well-connected with any deeply knowledgeable T&T fans, so I've been missing out on lots of adorable details that I'm only finding out about now thanks to the Almost Disturbing Searching Skills of [livejournal.com profile] fuyukoi and the wealth of information that is the team of [livejournal.com profile] lovespiral and [livejournal.com profile] luin_lote. I probably would have looked harder for T&T-related things all this time since Tsubasa's my second favorite in Johnnys, but it's not as easy finding things for them as it is in K8 fandom, plus Subaru is extremely distracting. (Oh, hey, speaking of! While I was in Harajuku I got the awesomest picture of him making a crazy face while holding a massive signed-ball gun. ♥ Voila )

I have Feelings about Subaru. ♥ XD)

So anyway! In October, I got tickets to see T&T three times, three days in a row, and I now have purikura-level stars permanently fused to my irises.

Follow the cut to the Land of Eternalle Homosexuall Fyre (WARNING: There's a LOT of Married Going on Under Here) )

ETA: I'm also really curious about the last con! If anyone went to the last Hiroshima con, please share your experience! I've been wondering if they were leading up to anything with all the handkissing. XD

In 2007, I met [livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi in person and immediately knew she was wonderful. She had a contagious smile and a clever sense of humor and I think within the first, like, three hours of talking, we'd already come up with some ridiculous jokes we still make at each other now. I was ridiculously happy to have met someone as excellent as she is, and I consider myself lucky to have her as a friend.

She's extremely talented. In writing, of course, but also, I don't know, as a human. XD She's also given me some of the most levelheaded advice and I would trust her with just about anything. (Except, for example, brain surgery. We're just...not that close yet. I'm sorry, Merface.)

Basically, she's sublime and I thought I'd make a post dedicated to her. :)

I ADORE YOU, MERFACE. :D ENJOY YOUR DAY! ♥

Why Jensen Ackles Is Marvelous
#1,291,226

Fan:
Have you thought about taking part in a European film?

Jensen:
I might have a little trouble with the language but yeah, why not?

Misha:
Just by the way, is "European film" a euphemism for gay porn?

Jensen:
I mean, that really doesn't change my answer.

Q: What kind of world do we live in?

A: One in which GAY MARRIAGE IS LEGAL IN NEW YORK. :D

I can't wait to see the It Gets Better videos that come from this. ♥

This has made me feel so peaceful. And because I'm a sap through and through, I wrote a drabble. :D

At dawn, Tsubasa sits down on their bed and rubs a grain of sleep from one of Hideaki's tear ducts with the pad of his finger. )


And look, a Gay Marriage Commentfic Meme! :DDDDD

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!

KYA:
Sure, finished. But the other five are already started!

You know, this really shouldn't be so challenging for a playwright.

But --

KYA:
I NEED ENDORPHINS.

KYA:
I. DON'T. WANT IT.

Was she wearing shoes at least?

[Subaru nods.]

THEATRE HISTORY ESSAYS:
Well, small blessings.

♥ Just saw my actors in Kate Crackernuts! I'm so proud of them. ♥♥♥! And the show itself is fantastic. I'm in love. Completely. The Sheep's speech at the end -- I'm sorry I can't remember it now -- it unlocked something in my heart. (Yes. Sheep. Baaaah. That kind. Seriously. XDDD)

I've been so afraid of this play )


♥ I saw David and Jake after the show, and I hugged them both and I told them I'm proud of them and they'll always be my actors to me. I love those boys. My genius actors. *BEAMS*


JE Epilogue Meme. I don't usually ask to be cheered up, but I think I could stand to do it more often. ♥

♥ Classes are finished! And still this is the busiest week imaginable. O__o Someone explain this to me, please. On the upside, my End-of-Semester massage got moved to tomorrow, so I had a full hour to write Yoko/Hina/Subaru and Subassan. ♥ :D


♥ I have to mention this because I watched it last night and I'm still rolling 47 spoiler )


♥ Overall, am sleepy, but I'm happy. &hearts♥♥


Today's Hot Moment!
きょうのかっこいいしゅんかん!




Yasu: Oyahou gozaimasu!
Subaru: ...That is not where I left you.

チュ
-キラキラ!
