Dear f-list,

What can I say? I miss you all? I wish I could give each and every one of you a hug for always, always being there for me? Supporting me, squeeing fannishly with me, offering love and understanding… I’ll just… sincerely apologize for not being there for you these last three months, the same way you’ve all been here for me (always T_T). I, obviously, fail so much at life, it isn’t even funny. I’ll need to draw up a list of Why I Fail So Much sometime and then have to rectify the reasons behind my horrendous failings. :|

I think July-September is when I’m most active one LJ, followed by moderate activity from October through December.

(And of course, Jan-June is official hiatus, as usual. Exams are just erk.)

The last three months have been a bit hellish, though. My parents took a full month of vacation back in October, leaving me in charge of the house yet again, which I did not appreciate as much as I did last time. That might have been because I have exams in January this time – I’ve never sat for the Jan Edexcel sessions before (I usually prefer the May/June sittings, because procrastination is my middle name), so I was left a little burnt out before October even ended, trying to balance household maintenance with studying and fandom. >_>;;

Speaking of fandom, I’ve delved into a few new ones like Code Geass (FFF-why is this so good? Oh dear lord, Lelouch. Just. What? WHY? ;_;), Ao no Exorcist, Death Note, True Blood, Hawaii Five-O, Game of Thrones, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Eden of the East etc, etc. Also, also! I’ve been on a D.Gray-Man kick for some inexplicable reason lately – perhaps, because of this and because of Allen and his stupid, stupid smile. Stupid boy. Why does watching you smile like that hurt? :’( I’ve only just re-watched the anime but I can’t wait to pick up the manga from where the anime left off (just who is Alma? @_@ A better question would be: who is Kanda? I know next to nothing about his past right now. :()

Fandom activity-wise, I couldn’t resist making some icons (mostly for Pokémon and Code Geass because all the pictures I found were so. damn. pretty) and writing fic (one for DGM, a few for Naruto and Code Geass). I was also planning to put up a fic!request post for Christmas but sadly, that didn’t work out. I resolve to rectify this in the coming July (it won’t be a Christmas request post, but still).

Even with exams looming so frighteningly close, I-I couldn’t stay away, as you can see. |||OTL

(Oh fandom, what have you done to me? 8D)

But I suppose I will have to stay away now, at least for this month, no matter how much I don’t want to. Final year of college and my last chance to give it my all and all that, you know? I'm sorry if I've left you all hanging these past months. I’ll be back in February, f-list, to squee about Code Geass and DGM, especially, and do some long-overdue memes, but until then I hope you’ll all keep being awesome and fannish no matter how hard RL tries to pull you down and under.

I’m curious – how many of you attempted NaNoWriMo this year? And how was Christmas/New Year’s for you? Mine was filled with postcards, and as usual, fireworks.

Thank you all for the amazing birthday presents, Christmas cards and New Year’s greetings♥♥ Here’s to another year of squeeing and hoping Sasuke comes back home in one piece. Cheers!

Love,

~I.

P.S. This post also serves as a link post – as in, if you’ve written fic or drawn fanart, or if there’s something (whether in a community or your personal journal) you think I should see, leave a link to it in a comment and I’ll get to it as soon as possible. Also, links to any graphics community you frequent would be much appreciated – as much as I love this Team 7 themed layout, I think it’s time to move on. All comments are screened.

[Current Music |Nothing Else Matters - Metallica]

Title: Milestones
Summary: Sakura is two-and-twenty and still doesn't know who Sasuke is. But she can still try.
Disclaimer: Disclaimed.
Theme: Post-canon
Prompt: Warmth
Medium: Fanficiton
Genre: General/Friendship
Rating: K+
Warning(s): Present tense? Sasuke's pale wrists?
Comments: Late submission is extremely late. This is the shortest thing I've written to date and I'm surprisingly happy with it. I spent a ridiculous amount of time making sure Sasuke came off pretty. I hope I've succeeded? :D

Much love to Astronauts for her warm, encouraging words and to danikos_realms for her extremely quick, thorough, and efficient beta work. You guys are lovely.



Sakura thinks of time and distance and counts the heartbeats in his silence.Collapse )

It's a bit astounding how, over the span of two years, one can go from completely carefree to downright obsessive about life and the consequences of not doing things when they need to be done.

I haven’t been on LJ for a month due to personal reasons, but during that time, I’ve been reading. Books, physics guides, doujin, medical texts, wiki pages on Japanese cultures, and fanfiction.

Especially fanfiction.

Fandom, why so complicated? D:Collapse )

This is how I am about pairings when I’m stressed:

Sasuke Uchiha/Sakura HarunoCollapse )

What I’m looking for:

SS: Stop breathing, darlingCollapse )

Naruto Uzumaki/Sasuke UchihaCollapse )

What I'm looking for:

SNS: Rip my heart outCollapse )

Sakura Haruno/Naruto UzumakiCollapse )

What I'm looking for:

NS: Cry for youCollapse )

/dead

Long desperate entry is long.

I guess what I’m saying is that relationships should be given their proper weight. I’ve seen people dismiss two of the… bonds between members in a team, in favor of glorifying one. It’s just a bit appalling (and heartbreaking) that people would choose to do that just to “justify” their reasons for liking one ship and hating the other, especially when romance wasn’t really the point of the manga at all: teamwork, friendship, ~bonds~ and all those other fun things were. Still are.

Gift!fic for mikochan_noda: Fall Into Your Sunlight [Dec. 26th, 2010|07:20 am]
fadedink
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ]
[Current Mood |happyhappy]
[Current Music |Shattered - Trading Yesterday]

Fandom: Naruto
Summary: Memories keep the mind company. The body remembers its way back home.
Genre: General/Angst
Word Count: 3,045
Characters: Haruno Sakura, Uchiha Sasuke
Warning: 2nd person, present tense
A/N: When I started writing this last year, I never thought it'd turn into something like this. You do not give a wonderful person depressing!fic for their birthday. D: It's just not done. Sadly, it was damn cold outside on that particular 4th of November; that made me want to write not-happy!fic. As you can guess, it all went spiraling downhill from there.

A year later, I'm looking back at it and marveling at how horrible the opening scene was before sirona_gs swooped in like the Wonder Woman she is and pulled me up from the depths of despair. sirona has been an amazing beta and even more amazing person; I can only gape at how bravely she dived in to rescue what I had thought was a lost cause. O_O I'd go as far as to say this fic is 1/4th me and 3/4ths sirona, which would not be exaggerating it all all.♥

The title, Fall Into Your Sunlight, is her doing as well how are you so brilliant, woman ♥_♥. Listening to Shattered by Trading Yesterday wouldn't go amiss either, before reading this... oh, I have no idea what this is supposed to be anymore, actually.

mikochan_noda, I guess you can call this a belated DX birthday gift, a Christmas present and a token of my adoration all rolled into one (hopefully) pretty package. XD I hope you'll enjoy it!



Fall Into Your Sunlight


For Mikochan_noda




Sakura remembers little-people feet leaving little feet-like shapes on muddy forest floors. Sometimes, she remembers nothing at all.Collapse )




Merry Christmas, everyone!

Meme snagged from sureasdawn

1. Reply to this post with “Batshit!Sasuke” and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload) five (or more) songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.


Let’s see, this is hard~ D: Since sureasdawn specifically stated B for Batshit!Sasuke, I’ll start off with a song that reminds me just how emotionally constipated he is 8D

Baby I can make you feel hot, hawt, HAWTCollapse )

Meme stolen from rosalui because it looked so damn funtastic♥:

1) Set your primary playlist to random and shuffle it.
2) Post the first line (or first couple of lines) from the first 20 songs that play (or however many you want to), no matter how embarrassing the song.
3) Anyone is allowed to guess the answers. Strike through and add the artist and title below the lyric when someone gets one right.


I wanna hold 'em like they do in Texas plays XDCollapse )

Holiday Gift Wish Meme

The only wish that crosses my mind is GO AWAY, FEVER, YOU'RE NOT WANTEDCollapse )

That said, did I mention that this is officially my first Christmas ever? We really don't celebrate Christmas here but why not, all those gifts gone to waste D: so I'm a little bit excited and a lot nervous, wondering if I should brush up on my Christmas carols. D:

<333 from moi.

ETA: Songs will be uploaded tomorrow. My eyelids feel like they weigh a ton. -.-Zzz

Read it for yourself. I'll go stab a Christopher Pike voodoo doll in the meanwhile and ajklhlksdfh.

But before that, I must sleep. And to my f-list: pending replies will be replied to shortly~ if I'm late, it's only because I'm reading/listening to all the goddamn awesome manga and lovely music you've rec'd. I think I'm addicted DX

Led Zeppelin (and Incubus/Snow Patrol/Trading Yesterday) [Oct. 26th, 2010|06:31 pm]

[Current Music |Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin]

Why do I always get into these things without thinking? Wait, was I even thinking?Collapse )

So here’s a meme:

Tell me about your top ten* favorite Led Zeppelin songs, and tell me why you like them. Try to——and this is optional——describe your preferences in terms of lyrics, musical composition and instrumental acrobatics.

*This is me asking for the impossible, given the number of albums they have, but the article has a tight word limit. DX

Another meme totally for personal reasons:

Give me five Incubus** songs you’d rec to everyone (preferably with links).

**If you aren't familiar with Incubus, Snow Patrol and Trading Yesterday (aka The Age of Information) are open for discussion, as well! :)

Rec away because my deadline is approaching fast! DX

Signing off,
I~

Fic: Take Four [Oct. 26th, 2010|02:13 am]

[Current Mood |highhigh]
[Current Music |A Little Pain (Trapnest) - NANA ED]

Title: Take Four
Genre: Angst/Romace/Gen
Rating: M, because the characters need some angsty sexytimez.
Warnings: Overuse of dashes because it's the cool thing to do, yo. And Sasuke. why do I always fuck up his character. Why. DX
AN: Huge AN is huge.Collapse )

And obviously, this is full of indulgent Sasuke character ramblings as usual. I've been craving some awesome music lately, and this is the result:

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten eleven of these, then post them.
