On December 7th I decided to swear off twitter and plurk (outside of plurks tagged with tf or obviously about [community profile] thoughtformed). I wasn’t sure if I could do it, so I didn’t say anything when I made the decision, but as it’s been more than 21 days, I think I can safely say I formed the habit of not regularly checking those sites anymore. I realized I had an unhealthy obsession with checking them all the time, so basically: It’s me, not you. I hope we can still be friends. Etc.

I’ll still respond to @ messages and DMs on twitter, and any @’s and pplurks on plurk because I’ve got email notifications turned on for all four of those. I've also got text stuff for twitter enabled, so we could even use that like text messaging.

I know it's kind of awkward and weird making an announcement about this, but I also really really hate it when people disappear from social media with little fanfare and then you just wonder about them for a long time, so... yeah. Also, it really has been a conscious decision, so it felt like a conscious announcement needed to be made. I'm so addicted that I don't think I can use the websites without getting full-blown obsessive again; even checking plurk for tf stuff feels dangerous, but I don't want to miss out on plotting things!

Anyway. End of year meme!!!

The end of year meme. I was going to tack on this "fandom" end of year meme but it kept asking me questions about the fandoms I planned to get into. Am I the only one who doesn't EVER "plan" to check out fandoms? I'll watch TV shows, yeah, but I never go into a TV show/movie/book/etc for the sole purpose of fandom. Fandoms find me. So there.

For previous years, please see: 2006, 2007, 2008, & 2009. (Older years will be locked down again in a few days. Honestly can't remember what I wrote in them, kind of too afraid to reread.)

01. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Quit my job! That was pretty monumental. I mean, I quit Sonic (fast food place) to go to college, but I don't think that's the same as quitting my post-college job. Oh, and I also navigated NYC by myself! Took a train to Long Island all on my own, navigated the train schedules and everything. Had my own clients. Hailed a cab. Quite a few things, I guess, but the job thing was really the most important.

And all the rest. )

koori no mamono no monogatari

the ice-cold demon's tale

I have no idea what the update schedule on this manga is like or when to expect the next chapter. Currently, Storm in Heaven is scanlating and you can find up to volume 13 chapter 1a here for download. There are 24 volumes total. I began reading this last weekend and it is AMAZING.

It's a slow moving shounen ai story about a demon whose chance encounter with a kind, young, dying man makes him realize love for the first time. My one complaint with the series is that we are now into the 13th volume and even though Ishuca (human.. kind of) loves Blood (demon) I STILL HAVE NO IDEA IF ISHUCA REALIZES THAT IT'S A ROMANTIC LOVE. Like, come on Ishuca, get with the program, more kissing please.

More seriously )

1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?
Voted. Lived in an apartment. Lived in a foreign country. Spoke a foreign language in something other than a classroom setting.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
My resolution is always to lose weight, and yeah! It actually happened. I don't think I'll be making any resolutions for this year though. I never bother to actually think about them.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes, my cousin Amy (a daughter, Ava) and Liz (a daughter, Randi Marie, WHO THE FUCK NAMES THEIR KID "RANDI" I MEAN SERIOUSLY WHAT THE FUCK).

Fireworks have started, so I guess that means it's time for that end-of-year meme. I wasn't actually going to do it, but you know what, it's a good way to keep track of how you've grown. Here's last year's, if anyone is interested to see how I've changed. And now: 2007. )

Also, um, I've made an flist cut. I missed out on checking my flist for two days and had to do a friends?show=p&skip=50 and I'm always sort of frightened by that. Please feel free to take me off your flists even if I've kept you, because after all, the New Years is all about making a fresh start. It's always defriending amnesty day on this journal (I know this is overused and stereotypic to say but whatever), and it's even moreso today. Also, I'm planning on keeping my lj mostly public, so don't worry, you aren't missing much if I've defriended you!

Why all the hate on Hey! Say! JUMP? Okay I know I wrote an angry post when they first formed, but I've seen the light. That's behind me now, okay, I am all for these little tykes now.

Tthe main reason I changed my mind is....... well, because there's a shining, perfect otp hidden within their midsts. Chinen/Yamada, or Chinda, as I like to call it. Don't judge, alright, their love is pure. Okay, so they're only 13 and 14, what is the big deal. I just want cute little bff-but-maybe-something-more gen fic, is that so much to ask for??

Here are the reasons you should ship Chinda too:
1. At first you feel like a pedo but then the ridiculousness of it all really starts to grow on you.
2. Okay so, on Domoto Kyoudai, they have to say which member they find annoying. Yamada says Chinen, because he likes to be spoilt. "He'll sit on peoples' laps all the time..." YAMADA SAYS IT WITH THIS SERIOUSLY LOVING FACE, OKAY. I like how this reason isn't even facetious at all, I'm totally serious.
3. It's adorable.
4. Chinen has a huge crush on Ohno--he's the reason he joined Johnny's, his favorite senpai, and his most treasured possession is an autograph board he caught from Ohno at a concert. THEREFORE if you love Arashi you should love Chinen and by default love Chinda.
5. Yamada is fucking adorable, okay. His smile could light up a room T_T
ian: "chinen would never let yamada get drunk"
ian: "yamada would never let chinen go to LA"
"their love is too pure for that shit, okay"
ian: jadskfjalks
"yamada would never form a temporary unit with shoon"
"he would never betray his love for a yamashita"

and then we just get more and more ridiculous. )

♥ Now go out there and support ♥ Chinda ♥ and write me some cute bff drabbles, okay I'll even help you out! Here are some helpful fic prompts for you:
~ VMars AU, Chinen and Yamada are Veronica and Wallace and must solve the murder of Yamada's friend, Yamashita Shoon.

~ Yamada goes to a prestigious high school; Chinen is in his last year of middle school and studying for high school entrance exams. He enlists Yamada to help him study, and then realizes he's smarter than Yamada. He plays dumb so that Yamada will keep tutoring him and they can spend more time together.

~ Chinen and Yamada are childhood friends in Victorian England, but after a dispute between their families, are torn apart. When they meet again 12 years later, how will they react?

~ When Yamada realizes Chinen can make Play-Doh come to life, he asks him to build a world that's all their own.

~ Chinen and Yamada are forced to shadow a senpai for the day--Ryo and K8. Be sure to include them being taught Kansai-ben.

~ High school AU, Yamada is a blankface cheerleader and Chinen is a choir nerd.

~ Remix of Oregon Trail, but this time with Hey! Say! JUMP.

~ After eating enchanted apples, Chinen and Yamada switch bodies, and the only way to switch back is with a kiss.

Even though I should be studying, instead I have decided to elaborate on all the reasons why I love Arashi. If you find any links that don't work or have expired or whatever, just let me know and I'll fix it.
