For peeps who haven’t heard/watched GRANRODEO perform Trash Candy live, here. Treat yourself and watch this.
I don’t usually upload videos from original DVDs, but I uploaded this because most of my followers are Bungou Stray Dogs fans, and if you love Nakahara Chuuya, then here, love his seiyuu/voice actor too. In other words i just want to spread the love 😊.
A proof that Kishou sounds the same or even better live than recorded CDs.
My gosh, he is real. His voice is real.
Tbh, Trash Candy isn’t even a favorite for me among GR songs, but watching this again just gives me feels.
I love him. And please feel free to me talk about GRANRODEO, or anything about Chuuya and Kishou.
Stuff that’s not fic: If you’re looking for visual stuff (art and gifsets), you can find the above community on Tumblr at @spnlittlebro. @justhurtsam is… exactly what it says on the tin.
Some author recs:
Choosing fics is hard, because a lot of authors have tons of great stuff and I can’t choose just one to rec. I can point you in the direction of talented authors, though! I can guarantee that their writing is going to be Sam appreciative and Sam centric.
Note: Most of these authors post plenty of fics, ficlets, and episode tags to their Tumblrs that don’t get posted to AO3. Most of them post a mix of gen stuff and pairing stuff. I’m also definitely forgetting some great authors!
@themegalosaurus | (ao3) - Absolutely beautiful Sam-centric writing with a generous dose of brothers feels! (Make sure to check out her fantastic episode tags on Tumblr, too!) Be aware that some fic is Wincest or J2 RPF, with other pairings showing up occasionally.
@ameliacareful | (ao3) - Lovely hurt!Sam stuff and great portrayals of the characters.
@waterbird13 | (ao3) - Posts mostly on Tumblr and contributes so much lovely fic that is basically centered around Sam getting love and being happy.
@quickreaver | (ao3) - Lots of beautiful hurt!Sam fics, and quickreaver is also an insanely talented artist (if you’re looking for some visual hurt!Sam)! Can be slightly darker stuff. Some Winces and other pairings.
stillwaters01 on AO3 - Just in case you want very brothers-focused sweet agony and heartbreak with your H/C.
Let’s be real. Basically all the writers over at ohSam, too.
So much H/C you will die (in the best way).
No, really. I always indulge in thoughts of unrestrained H/C but I never seem to be able to write it. If relentless hurt (and delicious comfort) are your thing, these writers may make your day.
Marianna Morgan on FF.Net - Suuuuuper lovely and indulgent hurt!Sam and just really idealized happy brothers fic. If caring and protective!Dean is your thing, these are lovely!
skag trendy on FF.Net - I was trying to remember names from when I was prowling Fanfiction.Net, and I remember that this writer has just tons of hurt!Sam. You know those fics where the hurt doesn’t let up and it’s just this amazingly shameless pain-fest? Yes.
These writers are Sam fans who write some great stuff. Some of it is gen, some of it is explicit. If you prefer gen-fic, be aware. If you sometimes love your hurt with more intimate comfort, check these awesome people out!
@posingasme | (ao3)- Mostly Sastiel, mostly non-explicit. Beautiful and breathtaking and heartbreaking AUs that often have generous helpings of hurt!Sam and badass!Sam.
@rosworms | (ao3)- Sam/Benny and Sastiel and also Wincest + others. Sometimes explicit.
Often heavy on the comfort. <3
Always lovely. Mostly posted on Tumblr but some can be found on the Archive, too!
@kansaskissedlips (no ao3) - Wincest and Sastiel and basically everything you could ever imagine + more. I’ll bet you didn’t know you needed hurt!Soulless!Sam. But you do. Often quite explicit fics and ficlets with some gen thrown in!
And now onto the specific fics! My fic recs are below, as well as a list (with links) of fics people have recced to me! Cut for length, and also because I plan to add more as I think of them.
Feel free to submit me your recs (or self recs!), and I’ll credit you and add them to the list below!
So I just watched Camila’s MMVA performance. It was okay. I’m not saying it was a bad performance, it’s just that I’m used to her having such a great charismatic stage presence and vocal slayage, so it’s noticeable when she’s less than her standard stuff. I felt like her voice was flat at times or maybe she was feeling sick or something - but it’s minimal though. Someone said that she sounded so much better live than in the recorded video, so I guess that’s that.
It was still a good performance – not her best one, but still okay. The set design was good. I love her back up dancers.
One thing I really like about Solo Camila is that she changes things up every performance. It doesn’t get boring because she has a different concept for each one. So I’m looking forward to her future sets.
As of now, my favorite IHQ/CITC performance is still the BGT one. Next is her BBMAs, then this one.
Chinen’s voice is at the rough edge right? Honestly he sounds amazing during lives. Better than the recordings. I think Chinen has a beautiful voice, if you know how to use it well. So Hey! Say! JUMP. USE CHINEN’S VOICE WELL OKAY???
