MARUDA MONTH OF AWESOME

... aka this isn't all that well thought out, but I don't care because MaruDa is turning 30, and I want to love them a little more.


credit


Technically this is also a little late, and I really won't mind if any and all activity carries past October 4th.

To celebrate the wonderful thing that is the bond of one Nakamaru Yuichi and Ueda Tatsuya, who have been giving us joy and shipping material for years now, I challenge you!

Comment to this post and spam pictures, give me your feelings, write fics, post fic ideas and prompts, answer those prompts, share your doujinshi, look for couple clothes, share conspiratorial theories, flail and cry on my shoulder because Ueda and Nakamaru will both be 30 in a month and they still look younger than you, give me reasons why I (I mean everyone) should ship them (more), invite your friends, have a party!

Anything goes, this post stays public, let's have fun! Let's have an awesome MaruDa month. (The idea was not mine, but I sure hope Levy and Seki forgive me for stealing it).

I promise to make a master post of things in comments so people do not have to look for it.

Need a little incentive?

Maruda and dress shirts, and ties, and more ties (and you know other polka dot men apparel), and in leather jackets, and Ueda making Nakamaru's PV that much better, and Nakamaru telling you who really uses the whip in this relationship. And have MaruDa reminding you just how long they have been the perfection they are. Even if their radio made of awesome (and the related regular couple shoots) is no longer.

Have MaruDa
serenading you because of course Nakamaru takes Ueda with him to his SCP performance.

Enjoy them pimping each other's acting work in an interview or watch them discuss hairstyles like it's serious business.

And top it off with some lovely meta that makes you melt.

Now it's your turn, I will encourage all and every notion of affection. Spread the word, have some fun.



Shiny things to be found in comments:
Art:
Suits and ties (with a little written bonus)
another collection of fanart, omg so much awesome

Writings:
Chiffon
Don't Make Me Come Back There. I Beg You
AutoCorrect Refresh
This Is You
A Well-Laid Plan
Moonlight Without A Blueprint

Threads where you can request something to be written do you by a specific author:
Levy's drabble thread
Alex' prompt me thread
Ri's "find-me-something-i-want-to-write" request thread
!You can always leave random prompts and story ideas, things you have always wanted to see written about them in general comments and maybe some good fairy will pick it up. This is not limited to requesting from people who specifically offered to write. And of course you can pick any of the prompts and write something for it too ....

Translations:
An extremely cute and full of feelings compilation of short MaruDa related translations by [livejournal.com profile] snowaltz

Other awesome things:
MaruDa feels all over the place because talks of first impressions, and joy, but seriously check this out

Merry Christmas and happy New Year

Hello everyone!

I keep wanting to post and here I am too late for anything else than for wishing you the usual. It's Christmas Eve here, and that's when all the magic happens in this family.

The cakes for sure are ready ;D

And so let me wish you merry, blessed Christmas full of love and joy and a great year 2013 filled with success and good things.

Thank you for sticking with me for yet another year, for giving me chance to meet you, to talk to you, to share all my ups and downs with you. I love you all.

Fic games statistic

Fic games 2012 ended.

I can't say I regret running it, but I must say it wasn't as much fun as it could have been. But Jess, my awesome co-mod, not only took so much off my hands when my real life became extremely busy, she also saved the official Fic Games community from me expressing some of my ... discomforts, lol. Anyway, this is not the post where I'll voice them either because I'm in no mood to recreate that again right now. But maybe one day I will. Because really, I feel like some things should be said even if they make me sound pressed, might feel uncomfortable to someone or make me the bad guy.

ANYWAY, there was an idea to post top individual fics from this year. Not to post all scores, I don't want to put anyone on spot, but just some. If someone did the work, this info is public, which is why I feel it is okay to do this. We just did the math for you since we had to.

So I am listing the top 5 fics according to overall scores. Before I do, a few remarks.
- scores are overall once; it seems LJ no longer provides you with things like average and median when you close the poll (this could have been see in the previous years of Fic Games, but I either need a special code for this which I do not know or LJ changed their polls functioning).

- thus essentially, these might not be the fics that had the BEST ranking, but the ones with most votes. On the other hand, I believe lots of people do not vote instead of giving low points, so it is a bit telling (the best scoring fic was KAT-TUN gen!!!), but then, e.g. akame is not half as read as it used to be - more like shunned, so it is only natural that there won't be as many voters.

- the points of team mates are not counted in; there were few people who voted on fics of their own teams but in accordance with the rules, these votes were not taken into account.

cut for the kick ass table )

There are things to learn from these polls. Not all AU is AU enough. People will vote on certain fics but will not comment on them (more than on others). Gen is loved a lot. People who don't write are stricter voters than writers themselves. This year, it was much less about the category and much more about the fics themselves...

These are generalizations, but the creeper I am, it was interesting to see the polls evolve (even if LJ did stupid stuff like allow people to check two scores for one question despite the fact it should not be possible with this type of poll, lol).

So I hope this was fun for someone else than me, and I do not sound too creepy.

I am out of fun facts for the moment. Your thoughts and observations?

HELP?!

SO, as I have already mentioned, Je Fic Games are happening again this year. Here have the link to the big announcement post.

I have a question for you all. We need to think of a theme/prompts for this year and there was the idea of using famous JE quotes. And the perfect example of “What’s wrong with being naked?“

But I am really bad at these things, so the first thing to do is to ask the f-list. Any ideas what else could be used? More quotes from our lovely boys?

In rl news, I have moved, everything went wrong, and I am doing all the things at the same time. I have no clue why I am starting yet another fandom event right now ;__;

Also one more RL question: For some reason, this place attracts little insect like crazy. I have never seen this, not even in mother nature so to speak. I´m using Reid (repellent put into an electric socket) for inside, but all it does is to kill all these tiny, tiny flies and some mosquitoes until the morning. But this means I wake up to my floor covered in little flies. I could vacuum clean every day, and it spreads everywhere. IDK what to do. Any ideas? I need to google if there isn’t a herb that repels them or something so they don’t even want to fly in, but until then . . . suggestion?

*shaking from stress, disappointment and anger*

Since morning:

- one of the drawers of the new drawer set fell appart, it basically broke and the chances are I will not be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer. Plus this means, I cant use it. Which means I have nowhere to put my clothes.

- kitchen is all fucked up.
>> My father´s electrician put the electric outlet in the wrong place
>> One of the pieces of kitchen furniture is wrong
>> the kitchen was drawn badly from the start, so there will be holes in wrong places and stuff like that
>> bascially EVERYTHING THAT COULD GO WRONG DID
>> the people assembling the kitchen just chipped off a piece of the wall and dirtied another part of it.

I am so tired at the moment. And the day is not over, so more things can go wrong in the process.

eternal cycle of mod


Devil or Angel.

Now posting!


I've had like a long plead/rant ready in my head about how and why people should comment, but then few people were actually awesome enough to do so, so I calmed down.

Anyway still, please if you read (and actually finish) a fic, it probably already means it is good on some level because these are not short by far. Please do leave a comment then.

Just. Help me make the posting phase of this challenge as enjoyable as the writing (hopefully) was for the authors. The community being alive and people actually reading and flailing over the things authors plotted together is a big part of the challenge being fun and worth running. ♥

In other news. I am crazy. I have managed to get in contact with the mods of [livejournal.com profile] je_ficgames, and I want to run it again. I'm recruiting a comod though because running Fic games is not the least complicated thing out there, and it is time consuming at moments (team communities, prompt claiming, more coding during posting ...). I can't do this alone. I was also looking at the schedule and the one possibility I like the most clashes with my vacation (and no Internet) time, so I really do need help. Anyone interested?

That is all for today. Life updates when life stops being too time demanding ;D

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I'm not sure if one can call it hiatus if it never gets better. But I'm sorry if I'm not the best of friends lately. Life's been kind of mean to me, stealing even my weekends and dragging me around Czech republic and Slovakia too much and if not that, then I am touring furniture and kitchen studios and such.

THIS is the only thing that has made me stop so I am embeding it.



I WILL REPLY TO ALL THE THINGS IN . . . two weeks. Maybe, hopefully. Come to think of it, I might not have that weekend free either >.>

Also, do you know of a good Czech lawyer who will teach me for free? I am kind of desperate for a sempai..

This might be silly but it is self indulgent and with it out in the open, I will sleep soundly

Today, the day has come for me to be name dropped on a hate meme.

Maybe some other day, I would just shrug it off and move on. But today, it wasn’t the best of Mondays, so I got upset over it.

I mean, I always thought that if I should ever be relevant enough for one of these memes, it would be because of my modding attempts. Otherwise, I feel quite irrelevant in fandom. The last fic I posted out of exchange, for example, got no comments. But I’m not the most lenient mod, and sometimes I wonder if I’m not taking “fandom responsibilities” a bit too far – compared to how some other people view them. But surprisingly, even after the harsher mod runs (and I had a few) people always stayed classy, and I never had a reason to second guess my mod decisions because someone dished them on a hate meme and everyone joined the bandwagon as it happens.

But today someone actually, very helpfully, LINKED me to a silly name drop of mine. And after 4 years of happy fandom oblivion, the one thing that got me mentioned is purely an association with ONE of my friends.

I am a big girl. I’m 26, and perfectly fine with deciding for myself who I’m friends with. What really upsets me is to be defined solely based on the people I associate with. And what upsets me even more is that basically whole KAT-TUN fandom apparently is defined by this. So really, I was upset because there were my friends being talked mean about, there was this whole notion of KAT-TUN fandom being judged, and then there was me being . . . what was it exactly? Looked down on because I don’t know any better?

KAT-TUN fandom is so small lately. Or so I feel. Please stop kicking it while it’s on the ground. I like it; I don’t want people second guessing their involvement because of anything, no matter how insignificant the thread on a hate meme might seem in a big picture.

As for me. I don’t think this is a case and I have faith in my friends. BUT I would like to ask anyone who has issues with me being friends with different people to defriend me. As sad as it is, I would rather not have you on my friends’ list than to have you judging me because of my other friends or even worse to have you pitying me because I am somehow blind or incompetent and can’t chose my friends well.

For all I know, this was one person, and this person doesn’t even know me and just saw me on FTF or Jent or during some exchange posting. But this has been eating away on me because it just has been one of those days.

For what it is worth, you are all my friends because I want you to be, and GREAT chances are I was the one friending you. I really do hope you can like me even if I am easily susceptible to fandom favors.

Okinawa, my secret unrequited love

I should be doing (and posting) other things, but well . . . it's always the random stuff.

I REALLY REALLY WANT THE REMIX OF MY Tangles of what is left behind. I want the ryoda side of the story. SO BAD!!!

lol okay, thought process:

This rumor surfaced and made me laugh a lot:
Akanishi Jin plans to have an open bar, live in Okinawa and quit the entertainment industry [source]

All I can think of is how I've written that. Only not because it's not Hawaii and not a hotel and Jin has a wife in RL. STILL! I see parallels. But what I really want is the Ryoda in that story anyway. Now I just keep thinking about it (again).

Let's not talk about all the other things my brain came up with when reading that rumor (Mesia earning all the money - because taiga dorama next year, Jin on paternity leave, not wearing underwear ever again (effective birth control I hear) . . . )

Also I love Junno a lot (re his 10 000 words interview) and I handed in my FQF today with the lamest name ever.

Off to do the important stuff. ♥

EDIT: UEDA HAS A NEW DORAMA WHERE MARUYAMA IS THE MAIN CHARACTER (I MEAN MARUYAMA. OF KANJANI8. HE IS AWESOME AND HEY K8 KATTUN CONNECTION *_______________*) UEDA IS PLAYING A BOXER

But this seems fun. It might take me a few days but

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

what was their first kiss like?
where were they their first time having sex?
who’s louder?
who wakes up first?
favorite form of foreplay?
who performs/receives oral more often?
what kink they most often use?
who more often tries new things?
if they had to choose a third (or more) person to include who would it be?
favorite toy?
is there a certain thing one of them can’t have sex without?
their general feelings on sex in the relationship?
how careful are they about using protection?
a fantasy of one that the other will never be able/willing to fulfill?

the fic wish list meme

This is the last thing I should be posting.

Rules: List 1-10 pairings/prompts that you have been dying to read. Maybe it's a really rare pairing or something you've requested on any of the past smut memes which haven't been fulfilled. When you see this posted on your friends' journals, you may do one of the following:

- Write it.
- Link to one that's already been written, whether by you or someone else.
- Nothing, but karma will get you. >_>

There are no length or rating limits, and prompts may be duplicated (PLEASE). Be specific in your prompts particularly in reference to preferred smut content, seme/uke order, and any other requirements that may hinder your appreciation of the fic.

There is no deadline for this, but once your ten prompts have been written to your satisfaction you are welcome to make a new post starting over. You may write your own prompts if you want. If your tastes change, you can certainly switch out one prompt for another at any time.

My Wish List I think no one's going to be surprised by the RyoDa representation >.> )

the progres check

thumbsupSo, almost everything on my to-do-list is done and I think I can start stressing over the apartment issues tomorrow. I hope so.

OKFTF posted reveals. No one attempted to guess what I wrote ;__; It's a shame that it's such a "no once cares" thing because I would have liked to know how ninja or not I was this year. (Since normally I am very transparent). My recipient didn't guess me though, so yay :D

arrowroundAnyway since FTF ended, DOA is of course starting. Pimping goes here.

Devil or Angel.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.


._.;;I have a favor to ask regarding the Lyrics theme explained in the intro post. ATM I have around 30 lines from different JE lyrics, but I definitely need more.

pencilWhat I need is concrete parts of songs, that are either funny, substantial, famous for one thing or another. Like the Giri Giri part from Real Face or Omoide zutto zutto part of Love So Sweet, of course with English translation.

This is how it will look like on the actual list from which people will choose:
Kanjani8 - Misetekure: Sono karada mo Sono kokoro mo Subete boku ni misete kure (That body, that heart, show it all to me)
KAT-TUN - Love Yourself: Kimi ga kirai na kimi ga suki (I like the you that you hate)

paperclipIt can be just few words, or a longer sentence or two, but I obviously miss stuff from groups I don't really know, Kisumai, HSJ, SMAP, Tokio . . . but in general, anything that comes to your mind is fine, even famous misheard lyrics, I can always weed out the ones that I want, right?

rainHelp! I want as many choices as possible. *puppy eyes*

shockuLastly, does anyone want to write with me? I'll be a bit harder to write with this year, we'd have to start only after May 10th when I come back from Japan, and most of my writing happens on weekends these days, but I do want to participate . . .

I think this is all I have for tonight, I'm now off to fulfill the "relax" part of my to do list

cake Happy birthday KAT-TUN!

heart1Please help me spread the news, go read some good fic and comment because fandom tends to fail lately and authors need all the love they can get.

!?I'm not sure if there's someone out there who doesn't know what I've written and who would be interested in guessing . . . but I think I'm not TOO transparent this year. LOL I do hope it's less obvious than last year's "from the header".

penAnyway there's 3 more days of posting to go through, but once it's done . . . if you guess the fic I wrote, I'll write you something short (and sweet? or dirty?).

NGIn other news, IDEK how I will ever manage to pull my head above all the work I have lately. It's not good. Like really not good because of many things at work that are cumulating, and not all of them are just work load related. But I will try to hang on. I didn't want to whine. Sorry ;__;

FTF icons and . . . things

car1So I've driven over 1000 miles since last Thursday. And I did not even go near the car during the weekend. This whole feat was achived by me going from Czech Republic to Poland then to Slovakia then to Czech Republic again. Fun stuff.

shockuLife's crazy, work has never been this busy (this statement is making me feel like there might be a time when one person will not be enough, especially since I'm comparing the level of busy to December/January craze. But one more person is not an option.)

moneybagAfter two weeks of searching for the reservation fee we sent to the real estate agency, the money was finally found today. I seriously thought I would end up physically crying over this because. Money. Lost. Lots of money. Penalties for late payment coming into play. New condo uncertain.

arrowroundSo in between all that, every time I felt like posting it was just whine, whine, technical stuff no one gets/is interested in, me being tired, not having time . . . so I just didn't. One day I will have free time again. And on that day I will go see Big Bang concert (ANNOUNCE THE EUROPEAN DATES ALREADY? DAMN IT!). Yeah . . .

lightbulbThe rest of this week will continue to be crazy everywhere. On top of all that, FTF POSTING STARTS ON THURSDAY!!! I am excite.

wrenchSo I've made icons (instead of working this Sunday. I feel guilty but I needed a break).

heart1 BUT I'm no pro, so I asked for help, and Vix made me icons too. I'm sharing both sets bellow the cut. First table contains icons by [livejournal.com profile] myxstorie, the second table are my efforts. Difference is that Vix is much bigger pro, the pictures used are mainly the same, we just possibly use different cropping and well she's just better.

winkSo there's plenty of icons, and obviously Ueda and the random Yamapi at least are not for the exchange. It may or may not give you some idea about pairings this year, though not all of them ;D

Trying to remember what it means regular posting (and failing)

shocku Christmas it is over . . . so much hassle for . . . oh well. The hilarious moment came when me and my mother forgot to add in the presents for me (I - the shoes and she - the bag she promised to get me to go with the shoes) underneath the Christmas tree and had to go put them in while my brother was already distributing them. /fail.

christmastreeThis year, our Christmas tree was a gift from one of my father's business partners (owner of a gardening place), so it was kind of small by our standard. Different type of tree too. BUT it was super symmetrical and thick branched. Just different . . .



heartbreakWe also survived, with only little of tears on my mother's part (when crackers for dinner on December 25th were mentioned) being apart from my sister ♥ There's the next year to be all together again :D

pencilHols finished posting, and I have mixed feelings this year. Le sigh, not much of my cup of coffee. Though I think not many people could guess what I wrote (unless I told them) in this exchange, if only because not that many of you on my f-list would actively pick that fic to read. Does any of you want to try? I might drabble for you if you guess right? I just . . . *grumbles grumbles* LOL, sorry, I'm just all fidgety still.

eyesAnyway, got woken up by my work colleague today. To be fair it was 10 am, so no harm done, but he was mildly confused by my just-woken-up/sex-line-operator voice. It was funny. The aim for the rest of the vacation - do only the work I actually planned to do during my vacation, not the stuff constantly landing in my mail box.

mistNo snow this year, it feels so strange . . .

DD:I swear this post had a purpose, but I think I forgot all about it when I saw Rupert Grint in a music video. For a moment it looked like he was the one singing it (because I am only watching from the corner of my eye) and my mind was sufficiently . . . fucked. Anyway, the song's here, I like Rupert and the song is one of those I don't mind having on in the background when I just exist, so sharing :D
