it's like everything i love and enjoy in life comes from japan

Animes with a large yaoi fandom that are NOT yaoi/BL~

UPDATE: To the idiots who are actually flaming me, how cliche and illiterate can you get, it’s hilarious. 

I’m probably going to lose a shit ton of followers and get a lot of hate on especially on a bishies blog like this, but I’ve been thinking of making a post like this for a while and frankly, need to let this out of my chest. 

Enjoy!

So to my disturbance but unsurprisingly, I noticed a lot of people who like anime, but have not seen the following animes I am about to list, thought they were shounen-ai, boys love or yaoi. Because of that, a lot of people avert from them dismissing the animes off as pure fanservice for crazy fangirls. 
I understand this because I was and still am one of those people who stayed away. 

But after having the pleasure of diving into actually watching/reading Kuroshitsuji, Durarara!!, Hunter x Hunter, K-Project, etc. you start realizing how damn deep these works of fiction are and you really enjoy the characters and plot once you zone out the fandoms. 

There is no yaoi or BL whatsoever and any fanservice added is simply added in the anime and is in no way canon to the original work, manga.

I won’t be mentioning sports animes or reverse harems cause they’re full of guys, the fandom is bound to be crazy over that so I’ve given up hope. 

Basically, I just want to be a bitch and crush fangirly dreams so this post is pretty much me proving to newcomers why these animes are not yaoi and the men are not ‘gay.’

Okay, if you hate this already, stop here, backspace, block me, whatever. If you agree, carry on.

If you do happen to carry on but don’t agree, DO NOT attempt to argue or fight with me on this. Sorry to say, but I’m not really that open-minded and I stand firm on my beliefs here so if you don’t agree, then don’t ever socialize with me. Everyone is happy. We’re good.

                                                       o0o0o0o

Let’s start with Durarara!!

Let’s start with the most popular and raging ship in that fandom. Shizaya.
Shizuo and Izaya have been confirmed that they feel only hate and dislike towards each other. They literally want to get rid of each other. That’s it. And somehow, that is interpreted as ‘love’ by fangirls. 
In any case, the author already answered that Izaya was ‘normal’ and that he ‘has his needs.’ In Japan, that equates to being a healthy, heterosexual male who has normal sexual urges now and then. 

Despite claiming to love all of humanity, Izaya does flirt with women a lot and even said how he wants to date one or a few of them when they threatened to kill him. 

Shizuo used to have a crush on an older woman who sold him milk. He was originally supposed to be paired up with Namie by the author. He is also ship teased with Vorona and she to him.

Never had Shizuo shown any interest in men. 

                                                     o0o0o0o

Now on to K-Project. 

Reisi has been canonically ship teased with Seri. Seri has been revealed to harbor a bit of a crush on him. 
Reisi has no other feelings towards Mikoto other than wanting him to take responsibilities as King and a comrade. Mikoto is 100% indifferent to everything aside from his clan and family. 

Yukari Mishakuji is beautiful. He talks femininely, use makeup and skin care products. He paints his nails and is obsessed with everything beautiful.

He also said that he would only date Nagare Hisui IF he was a girl. If that doesn’t not ring a bell, I don’t know what does. 

                                                      o0o0o0o

Let’s go on to the ever so famous Kuroshitsuji and its famous bullshit rumor about it being “supposed to be a yaoi.” 
A Japanese person runs a blog on this website responsible for translating Yana Toboso’s blog. 
She has already confirmed that literally, no one in Japan including the author herself know anything about that made up rumor. As time went by, the rumors only got worse to the point that even non-shippers believe it (like I stupidly did in the past)

Both Yana and her editor already said too many times that Sebastian and Ciel feel nothing for each other aside from business, hostility and distrust. Let’s also add that Yana had GFantasy publish Kuroshitsuji. A company that strictly prohibits yaoi and BL of any form.  

Ciel throughout the manga and especially in the latest chapters had only shown concern and love towards Elizabeth Midford. Ciel, a cold-hearted child obsessed with revenge was legitimately about to throw his life on the line when Lizzy was in danger during the Campania arc. 

Whether this can be interpreted romantically or platonically on Ciel’s part is more ambiguous, but there is no doubt that the two care greatly about each other. 

If Sebastian really had ‘feelings’ for Ciel like so many fangirls like to believe, he would definitely do everything in his OP demonic power to get rid of Lizzy and have Ciel for himself.

Instead, he actively teases Ciel and respects Lizzy as well as support their fiancee relationship. Any ‘feelings’ he has towards Ciel is that of a predator and his dinner. 
Sebastian also has a lot of fun interrogating women in certain, special ways. Something he has never shown interest in doing with men. 

                                                        o0o0o0o

Finally, Hunter x Hunter.

Ever since a shounen like HxH attracted female viewers, no doubt because of the generous amount of bishounens on there (Hisoka, Killua, Illumi, Chrollo, etc,) the yaoi fandom now dominates the place and Killua and Gon became the most popular ship.
Even more than canon ones like Meruem and Komugi. 

I have run across people who even said that Killua and Gon are canon and that there can be nothing to challenge that. (apparently fangirls think they own shit now)

Killua had said countlessly that Gon was his “dear friend.” To anyone with common sense, a friend is not the same thing as a lover lol. There is nothing between the two little boys aside from a beautiful friendship that often occurs between children and adolescents even if a website like tumblr might find this shocking.

Let’s finish this with Hisoka, a character that has much controversy recently regarding his sexuality ever since certain people including I headcanoned him heterosexual cause we can.
But because of that one simply headcanon, people I personally knew and I were attacked, harassed, badmouthed and mocked. 

Until Togashi or Ishida confirms anything, Hisoka is left ambiguous. 
That does not mean that we cannot analyze canon evidence however.

When it comes to every single male character in HxH (including Illumi and Chrollo, the two male characters often shipped with Hisoka,) Hisoka has only expressed desire to fight and eventually kill them. This stretched down to Hisoka’s only ‘friend,’ Illumi. He has absolutely no problem killing Killua just to earn Illumi’s wrath to have the opportunity to kill him.

Hisoka’s interest in fighting Chrollo turned into 100% indifference when he learned the Phantom Troupe leader could not use nen courtesy of Kurapika.
Gon is just another toy he wants ripened to have the pleasure of killing.

The only person Hisoka is intimate with, tried to sleep with, get a date with, shared his past and his abilities with is to the beautiful female character Machi.
This extends to the latest chapter of 357 where he seemingly spared her at least temporarily out of respect.

Even when Machi threatened to chase him down to the ends of the world to eradicate him when he playfully makes her choose between him and Chrollo, he seemed satisfied with that.

Bonus:

For Shingeki no Kyojin, the most popular pairing in the Western fandom is Eren and Levi.
In the Japanese fandom, the most popular ship is Eren and Mikasa.

While I’m at it, SNK’s author answered in a Q&A that he purposely wrote Levi to have an attraction towards Petra Ral. 

And that ladies and gentlemen, concludes my throwing shade analysis of the above yaoi-dominated animes. 

(Also, I own none of the drawings used.)

What to Watch, Scenery Version

Looking for anime to watch where you can just sit back and enjoy the scenery? Here are five of my top picks for some of the most visually stunning shows that I’ve watched. Please keep in mind these are personal opinions, but if you think you’ve got a better selection, feel free to PM me and I’ll add it to the list. 

Let’s start off with Nagi No Asukara. While the beginning is a bit slow, the scenery is breathtaking and unlike any other anime due to the fact that a significant portion of it takes place underwater. Yes, you read that right, the show takes place in the future, or perhaps an alternate reality of current time. Humans live in the seas thanks to a special layer of skin called ena, which sparkles in the light. Not only does this make for an interesting story, but it also includes some visually stunning scenes. 

The next on the list is 5 Centimeters Per Second. This is arguably one of the most beautiful anime of all time. The animation is pristine and on a level entirely on its own. Told in three interconnecting segments, it is a romantic drama about making it through a cold world, only to find the warmth of love. It is definitely a coming of age story about accepting the fact that you are becoming an adult and moving on. The visuals appropriately take cues from the story, beginning with a cold winter and ending with a warm spring. I will only be mentioning one of Makoto Shinkai’s films, although all of his works are visually brilliant and include The Garden of Words, Cross Road, and Your Name.

Classical music fans rejoice! Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso, also known in English as “Your Lie in April,” is up next. While you may think that you’ve figured out the reason for the name in the first episode, hold on until the end, where the truth will be revealed. Another love story, this one about a boy who was once referred to as “The Human Metronome,” is longer no longer able to hear the sound of the piano. After years of only playing for his job at a karaoke bar, he comes across a girl in April who plays the violin. I hope you like tissues, because you’re gonna need them. There is so much color not only in visuals, but in the characters themselves. 

Owari No Seraph comes next. The reason I included this one is because not only are the characters intensely complex, but the backgrounds are too. They’re so rich in attention to detail that I felt it only fair to add it to the list. Against the dreary backgrounds, the character’s very pronounced hair colors stands out a lot, giving it a very vivid contrast to what Japan has become. I won’t say much about it, other than that it takes place in the future after a virus mysteriously wipes out most of the adult population at the same time vampires declare themselves the rulers of Japan. 

Last, but most certainly not least, is Zankyou No Terror. To be honest, I don’t think this show gets enough credit. Also known as Terror in Resonance, it’s about two boys who want to get back at Japan for their past. Joined by a girl who suffered at the hands of her mother, the three of them plan to go out with a bang (no pun intended). The visuals are so crystal clear it almost looks as though you’re looking at the real world. When I first turned this on, my parents didn’t believe I was watching an animated show. 

Bonus round! Puella Madoka Magica! Don’t kill me, I know, I’m a horrible person for including this, but it is so bright and colorful compared to the story line. It begins as a very fun show where a dark, mysterious transfer student appears in their lives, then a magical squirrel offers the girls a contract in exchange for becoming a magical girl. Don’t be fooled by the bright colors and beautiful backgrounds, this show will leave you thinking and perhaps questioning of everything in your life. 


Edit! Someone suggested that I add these two so here they are: the first one is Norn9: norn+nonet. Based on the otome game, a nameless girl with a mysterious past is chosen to join the crew of Norn, whose mission is to maintain peace throughout the world. While I have not personally watched it, from what I can tell of the animation it is visually very appealing, with stunning shots of both the sky and land. In typical otome fashion, the story seems to revolve around two girls with a cast of plenty of guys to ship them with. 

The second update I’ll be adding is Amnesia. Also based on the otome game, the story revolves around a girl who wakes up with no memories and has to try to figure out her past along with her new magical, floating friend. The entire show is very colorful, although I personally found it a bit slow for my taste.

Hello Darlings!

I am SO SORRY. I have been rubbish lately. I actually wrote this on the plane on the way to Japan. However, life seemed to catch up with me and I just forgot to post it! 

I am having major issues with City of Stars at the moment! Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about it! It is all written, but I feel like some scenes are missing and I’m unhappy with it, therefore, its not getting posted yet! Sorry!!!

This is the long awaited PREQUEL to ‘Be a Burrito with Me’ AKA, the ‘One Night Stand.’

I am writing all of these so that they COULD be read as One-Shots, however, if you would like to read the next part, go HERE.

Not many warnings for this. Its fairly fluffy. Obviously, sex is going to occur!

Enjoy! >.<

okay u nerds sit around and lemme tell u a story of boueibu’s origin and creation process !! !!!!! but jokes aside thank u guys so much for all the nice comments on my past boueibu translations / informational posts they make me rly happy and i love seeing u guys being excited over them !! 

just a reminder if you have any queries about boueibu feel free to send me an ask bc im always up for answering your questions !! + they make me happy bc im trash

ok so lets go all the way back to 2013 to start off with-

before boueibu even aired there were heaps of rumours about it being extremely similar to free! and it being the male version of pretty cure ;; but in reality what the producers said were completely different.. after the airing of ‘ixion saga DT’ which takamatsu shinji (the director of boueibu) was in charge of, pony canyon as u may already know, a very renowned company in japan for the anime it produces asked director takamatsu if he wanted to create an anime that will be well-selling. now pony canyon is in charge of all the boueibu soundtracks and etc 

(x) (rough) translation : “because i wanted to create the idea of ‘basically spending their daily lives loosely in their clubroom’ and under kawahara san’s order, the ideas ‘boys transforming’ and ‘for women’, the three ideas were combined to make this plan. written on april 2013.”

pony canyon’s kawahara san’s orders were ‘boys transforming’ and ‘female-friendly’ whereas director takamatsu probably wanted something in line with gintama and daily lives of highschool boys so something relaxed loose and chilled… im so glad their ideas were combined lmao

its actually revealed later that this is their second planning but from these plans we can understand that they were in fact originally targeting boueibu to be ‘BL- like’,, although its already extremely intentional bl imo aha

a rough translation of the planning-


original anime plan バトルラクラスタ-

battle lackluster (title needs to be worked on)

the protagonist who is beginning his school life in some all boys school is invited by a senior student with the eyes of a dead fish to join a club that basically does nothing called the ‘earth defense club’ as they are lacking new members. but later found out that they really are an organisation that defends earth. 

the unproductive daily lives of high school boys 

the defense club consists of four unique seniors and a problematic teacher dispatched by the earth defense institution. the characters effortlessly spend their daily lives in the clubroom. when theres a problem, they tranform into battle lacklusters and fight their enemy organisation that desires world domination. 

an earth defense club consisting of ikemen (good-looking) high schoolers 

the main story is ‘targeted for women’ and an earth defense club consisting of good looking high school boys that defend their planet therefore in other words a ‘male version of sailor moon’. the battles and their daily lives will both be illustrated along each other and during their daily lives, each characters’ ‘lukewarm relationships’ (in many contexts) will be shown. 

school background + promised battles

the main story is not only their earth defense battle backgrounds but also their school background including this ‘do-nothing club’ or ‘earth defense club’ and an illustration of the daily lives of these high school boys within this so called club. each episode’s beginning section will show the carefree lives of these boys in the clubroom and the ending section will be comprised of the ‘transformation scene’, ‘catch phrases’, their burning ‘killing move’ within these ‘promised’ battles. after everything is over, they always visit the ‘karaoke’ to sing a song. this will be the ending of an episode.

may look routined but a developing story

the main story follows a routined format like an anime predominantly targeted at children and slowly unfolds the story throughout the episodes. why was the protagonist chosen? what are the battle lacklusters? who are their enemies? their objective? etc. each episode, an important element can be hinted leading to the next episode.


ok first of all… battle lACKLUSTERS?? ???,,?? earth defense institution??? ?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME 

so this is basically where boueibu began… we can see that some things were kept whilst some other things were completely trashed like fucking en yufuin (the senior student with the eyes of a dead fish im guessing) going out on his way to actually ask someone to join the club imc yring..,,, by ‘lukewarm relationships’ did u mean bl ????? ???l the extra bit at the end about them visiting a karaoke lmao that was obviously changed to a bath but i noticed that pony canyon did somehow keep the karaoke element bc as i added before pony canyon is in charge of all the soundtracks and if we look at the cd covers of boueibu theyre all in a karaoke aha ;;; tbh boueibu is nothing like pretty cure its definitely like sailor moon 

(x) another rough translation : “i aimed for it to be something like sailor xxxn so i could make the producers laugh but since kawahara p hasnt watched sailor xxxn since they lived in another country ‘usagi? what’s that?’ (bitter laughter)”

u dont even know how much i laughed at this tweet omg poor takamatsu but anyways these are the original character plans for the battle lacklusters and all i can really say is…,, its basically chaos-


characters

tsukino sabaku (hakone yumoto - battle lover scarlet)

a first year student who entered binan high school this spring. a handsome boy with girl-like features. joins the ‘earth defense club’ as recommended by mizuno as the club is lacking new members. but as the club was really the secret headquarters for an actual organisation defending earth, tsukino transforms into lackluster moon and fights their enemy.

mizuno tadakuni (yufuin en - battle lover cerulean)

*laughing bc this is an actual name of a famous figure in japanese history

a third year student with the eyes of a dead fish, earth defense club’s president. a master at doing things at his own pace and being carefree. always seen spending his time in the clubroom. transforms into battle lackluster mercury.

hino shohei (zaou ryuu - battle lover vesta)

*means to be well known for being a player in the japanese entertainment world

a long haired second year student with a flippant personality and enjoys playing with girls. an expert at playing around, is able to turn any situation into some sort of a play. calls himself popular but doesnt give out that impression at all. transforms into battle lackluster mars.

kino kuniya (naruko io - battle lover sulfur)

*this is a bookshop name boueibu

a cunning second year student with excellent accounting skills. an expert when it comes to business and thinks of everything as cash. transforms into lackluster jupiter. 

aino kusabi (kinugawa atsushi - battle lover epinard)

a third year student with a man-like personality. holds the principle ‘live for love, die for love’ very deeply. transforms into battle lackluster venus. 


uh director this definitely makes boueibu look like a parody of sailor moon im crying but as u can see some of these aspects have been kept like ryuu not being popular with girls so after all the planning they gathered all the staffs and worked with diomedia nice nice happy ending !! !! after a meeting with producer sekiyama san and the president of diomedia kohara san it was finally decided that the characters would be named after bathhouses lmao

and that is how boueibu came into being..,, 

oh wait but i also have the very first illustration of boueibu-

(x) translation : “an illustration created at the very beginning of the plans. chizuru(the chief designer), im sorry for uploading this.”

im peeing just looking at this i mean yumoto looks the same but look at rYUUS GLORIOUS SCARLET HAIR AND ENS BLUE HAIR im guessing the one with the green hair at the very back is…. io?? i cnat even tell who atsushi is lmao

anyways this is the end of this post (there is ofc more to come ww) but i hope u guys enjoyed this and feel free to add anything yea !! !!!!!

               As of today, world famous designer and streetwear innovator Tomoaki “Nigo” Nagao keeps himself occupied with his altogether refined label, Human Made; focused on high-quality vintage reproductions and inspiring Originals. While running Human Made, Nigo is simultaneously the head of Japanese high-street powerhouse Uniqlo’s U.T. T-shirt line. While the partnership with Uniqlo has provided well rounded and loved clothing, the sporadic partnership he has with Adidas has given the public pieces worn by the likes of Kanye West and longtime friend Pharrell Williams. While the future certainly looks bright for Nigo due to his collaborative projects and his very own Human Made; Nigo has already unarguably solidified his position in the fashion, art and design world as an innovator and has become a source of inspiration for millions of artists and designers alike.


               In the beginning Nigo studied fashion at college while working for Popeye magazine as an editor and stylist. On April 1, 1993 “Nowhere” in Harajuku, Tokyo was born and Nigo’s first clothing shop was officially open for business. Nigo would proceed to create his own brand inspired by the iconic 1968 film Planet of the Apes. According to Nigo himself, when asked about the title “A Bathing Ape” (also referred to as BAPE) Nigo replied “It’s short for a Japanese saying “bathing in lukewarm water”.” The saying refers to the relaxed Japanese method of bathing which typically involves water at a temperature above 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) describing the comfortable lifestyle of today’s youth in Japan.


               Before the Brand would explode to the unforeseen heights of today, Nigo would push the BAPE brand forward and gain attention by producing thirty to fifty tees a week, selling around half by marketing them out of duffel bags at local parties and deejay shows and gifting the remaining clothes to close friends. With what had once started as a low scale business hustle and gifts for newborns and close friends, Nigo’s A Bathing Ape would eventually take the fashion and art scene by storm. By 2005 Nigo would have turned the beloved clothing line into a café, record label and beloved television show NIGOLDENEYE on MTV in Japan. Until it’s unfortunate closing in 2008 you could drop by the BAPE Café for a cheeseburger, curry, fried chicken, sautéed tuna, and green salad at the café if your not a fan of coffee or pastries. The record label (B)APE SOUNDS would work with The Neptunes, Kanye West, Cherie, J.O.Y. and Dub Master x. The television series would highlight the life of Nigo, A Bathing Ape, Billionaire Boys Club and interactions with the likes of N.E.R.D., The Neptunes, the Teriyaki Boyz, and life in Japan.


               With A Bathing Ape built on an ideal of luxury and exclusivity, everything from coffee mugs, hoodies, rugs and watches alike were branded with the iconic Ape motif, sold to anyone willing to purchase before the limited quantity would cease it gained a cult like following world wide. With Nigo being the child he was (A child in love with the creations of George Lucas, The Beatles and Elvis Presley) it was clear that he would grow to have a passion for art and collectibles. By 2010 Nigo would have collaborated with many of his inspirations and beloved companies such as Marvel and DC Comics, Super Mario, Transformers, SpongeBob, Hello Kitty and Disney’s very own Mickey Mouse. On April 30th 2013 an end of an era occurred when the historic Twenty-year run between Founder Nigo and A Bathing Ape split paths.


                “The company itself wasn’t in a very dire situation, but in the end I spent so much time looking after the management side that I wasn’t really able to do design,” he told WWD during an interview at his personal atelier. “I turned 40 [last December], there was the turning point of the brand reaching nearly 20 years since its establishment, and I think I made a forward-looking choice,”. Since the departure, A Bathing Ape has continued to flourish in the United States, China and the UK featuring collaborations with Peanuts, AstroBoy, DragonBall Z, Def Jam and Puma.


               In 2010 before the departure with A Bathing Ape Nigo teamed up with longtime friend and graphic designer Sk8thing on a new fashion entity titled Human Made. Enlisting similar elements from its predecessor A Bathing Ape, the brand consists of a vintage style approach focused on high-quality reproductions. Human Made has defined itself with muted color pallets, specialized prints, quality goods and spectacular branding. Human Made draws inspiration from American vintage clothing from the pre-1960s era, when addressing the inspiration Nigo stated “The future can be found in the past”. From workwear to denim, Human Made recreates retro pieces with an emphasis on quality and authenticity. Having collaborated with the likes of Adidas and longtime friend Pharrell, the brand has quickly established a stellar reputation within the streetwear scene. Since the launch of HUMAN MADE, Nigo and has collaborated with the likes of Coca-Cola, Apple, and Adidas for the newest brand.


               With Nigo being the vintage enthusiast he is, he’s citied the rockabilly subculture he encountered as a teenager and 50s American rock and roll icons as the prime influences for the newest brand. “What’s interesting now is that there are more people in Europe who are interested in American vintage clothing,” Human Made collection is entirely pre-1960s Americana-inspired. When conveying the second-hand styled approach Nigo said “I didn’t want to make anything for Human Made without actually having the garment to look at, inspect and see how it’s put together. Nothing has come from photographs. Pretty much everything is from my own collection, but rearranged.” “I don’t tend to search for things because I like the idea that you come across something and decide at that time if you like it or not.” The line features exquisite detail, earth tones rather than vivid contrasting colors and as always from Nigo; phenomenal quality. “I wonder if I am a pioneer” “I don’t feel like I have achieved that level yet”. “There are more things to be done, and I’m still training.”
It’s only a matter of time before Human Made garments are seen left and right on everyone’s favorite celebrities. Until then, enjoy the underground fashion secret that is Human Made by Nigo®.

2200 words of REALLY HASTILY-WRITTEN FIC ignore any egregious errors

McCree first sees him on the streets of Hanamura, not far outside the guarded Shimada property. McCree sits at the counter at the Rikimaru ramen shop, poking halfheartedly at a bowl of shoyu. A figure steps up to the counter beside him, and though McCree doesn’t look up at first, he can hear the cook greet the newcomer enthusiastically. So he looks up.

The newcomer is, quite possibly, the most handsome man he has ever seen. With long, dark hair tied back in a ribbon, piercing dark eyes, and cheekbones one could cut themselves on, the sight of him very nearly stops McCree’s heart.

Shoujo manga recs?

Oh lovely anon, I had fun with this, probably too much fun.  You see, I got a little carried away and ended up making a list of 12, which isn’t so bad, but then I had to go into fangirl mode and explain while they’re all so delightful.  I really urge you and anyone else looking for some new shoujo to try one of these!

Akatsuki No Yona: If you’ve seen the anime and enjoyed it, I strongly recommend reading the manga from the beginning.  I’m not going to say much else about this one since the majority of you know it, but seriously, give Yona a go, you won’t be disappointed.

Kanata Kara: Oldie but goldie, as in it’s from the 90s (please don’t let that deter you).  This manga follows Noriko, a girl transported to another world. Upon arrival she meets the traveling warrior, Izark, and their adventure begins.   Kara is one of my favorites; it does a wonderful job juggling action, adventure, and adorable romance.  As an aside, I love the fact Noriko doesn’t just know the language in the new world but has to learn it during her travels.

Last Game: Though this series does encompass a lot of stereotypical shoujo clichés, it’s also delightfully fresh.  Unlike most, LG takes place in a university setting, and it’s the hero who has been in love with the heroine for a long time.  Ten years, actually.  Too bad he can’t just manage to spit that out.  Also, did I mention she’s pretty much better than him in everything? Bring on the rivalry love (I’m having Special A flashbacks).  

Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden: This is what I like to joking call “the original AkaYona.”  We have our chosen girl who is prophesied to save the country, and the warriors she must collect in order to do so.  One of the really cool twists in this story is that not all the warriors are men, and even more than that, all the men aren’t in love with her, save her love interest.  The heroine is also quite mature and not completely inept when it comes to combat.  Fair warning: there are a lot of deaths, have tissues ready if you cry easily.

How Youth is Depicted in Battle Royale

Well, I promised that once I had my essay written, I’d upload it, and it’s all finished! Now, before you read, I just want to clarify a few things:

  • This is an essay written for an English class in college, so I had to go with some pretty boring topics IMO. The three things I chose to concentrate on were: Young people’s attitude towards the government, how ordinary things intensify in survival scenarios, and (losing of) morality.
  • Because the essay was going to be penalized if I went over a certain number of words, I had to leave out a lot. Forgive me for my lack of insight into certain characters (“You should’ve done X as an example!”), but I honestly had to cut out a lot.
  • Please note it's highly unlikely that my tutors ever read BR, so naturally I left out details, or I had to explain some pretty obvious things. 

Warnings out of the way, enjoy reading!

Hello I'm not of you currently taking any gency headcanon but here's one. How about an alternate timeline where Genji DID decided to take on an active role in the clan, how would you think they will meet? Will there be a THEM at all? On the side note keep up an awesome job at your works :)

I’m always taking headcannons, doll! And thank you, love the support <3 (btw this is super long because, oops, my hand slipped)

  • They do meet, but its during unfortunate circumstances. When Overwatch went to Japan to take down the great Shimada Clan, Mercy of course went with. And during the final battle taking place at Hanamura’s temple, she finds one of the enemies lying alone in a pool of blood. Upon further inspection, its the younger Shimada brother. She heals him nevertheless, having never turned away anyone else before. At his confusing revival, he’s up and moving, and attacking Mercy. 
  • She barely holds him off for a few moments, and Mercy doesn’t even have time to wonder if she’s going to die because McCree shoots him in the chest, stopping him dead. Just as he’s about to finish the job, she stops him, saying he could be useful. He’s obviously skilled and trained, he could help Overwatch.
  • McCree tries to explain to Mercy that bad guys don’t make really great good guys but after a stiff reminder of where Reyes found him, McCree shuts up.
  • But then, she has to fight for him again against the whole team, especially Commander Morrison. Everyone is really against keeping a member of the Shimada clan alive and under the same roof, but Mercy insists.
  • Morrison gives in after a while, no one ever really refusing Mercy before. Its with a catch though, he has to accept their offer and turn in everything he knows about the Shimada clan, or else he will be executed for his punishments. 
  • Mercy hates the later part, but agrees with it nevertheless. Knowing it’s the past chance she can give to him.
  • They get him to the med bed at their safe house in Japan, and she saves him once again. No cybernetics required. She spends weeks helping him recover, making sure his muscles and bones have healed properly. 
  • When Genji first wakes up, he loses it. Thinking of all sorts of tortures his own clan did to other’s just to get information. After a series of McCree, Morrison and Reyes holding him down enough to sedate, Mercy gets him calm enough to explain everything to him. 
  • He asks about his clan, about what happened to his brother, but Mercy can’t give him any information because of Morrison’s restrictions. But the fact that his brother is dead eats away at a piece of her soul. 
  • After he agrees to join, Mercy tells him the truth. Genji doesn’t speak for four days, and barely eats besides the times Mercy practically shoves food past his lips.
  • He’s angry and harsh at Mercy’s kindness. He’s trying to escape at any moment, but he never gets far before his pulled stitches are letting all the blood out of his torso. Repeatedly, Mercy has to save him from Overwatch members and himself.
  • After one close call, Reyes says the next time he’s limply out across the field in front of the safe house, he’s going to be shot dead. Mercy passes the finale warning one with a quiet begging to be good and do what he’s told.
  • She gets McCree to talk to him one day, and hope that the cowboy can knock some sense into Genji with his own similar experience. Afterwards, Genji is much more willing to do what he’s asked. Mercy can’t thank McCree enough, but he brushes it aside easily, saying he gave the same talk that Reyes gave him.
  • Genji doesn’t try to escape again, knowing he’s trapped. After rigorous interrogation from Morrison and Reyes, he’s given his entire clan up. Dishonor is upon him, and he knows it all to well. He couldn’t leave even if he wanted to, having no where to go now. 
  • Even now a part of the team, he’s harsh and cruel to the other members, except maybe besides McCree, but that’s only sometimes. 
  • He’s the meanest to Mercy, and everyone hates him for it. Mercy doesn’t waver in her kindness and support though, a part of her believing she deserves this treatment because she was the one that brought him here and made him give up his clan.
  • His harsh treatment however comes to an end when he makes a snide comment to her while they’re alone in the med bay, Mercy just trying to give Genji a checkup. Mercy’s iron will crumbles to the floor as she bursts out how sorry she is to do this to him and that she deserves it all and more.
  • This shocks Genji into utter silence before he stands up and faces the doctor.
  • “Do you honestly feel guilty for what I’ve caused to be done to myself? How can you possible be so selfless and kind while I’m doing everything I can to make you hate me? How can someone like you see someone like me, and see a life worth saving? Why are you so… angelic?”
  • They both sit in silence for a long time, Mercy finally understanding Genji’s self-loathing to the point where he doesn’t believe he deserves to be around other’s so good and kind to him, especially Mercy of all people. He doesn’t deserve any of this, and doesn’t understand why Mercy saved his life that day.
  • She whispers how she sees goodness in him. Even if he can’t see it, it’s there. That even while he was terrified of being here, he was gentle with her while she did her examines. How she knows he left that origami of a lucky star on her desk the day he was clear to leave the med bay. How he protected her in battle, no one ever harming her since he’s joined the fight.
  • Genji murmurs that he doesn’t deserve her. He can’t possible have an angel like her with all he’s done.
  • “No. You’re wrong, Genji.” 
  • They’re already so close, Mercy just leans an inch forward to press her lips to his. He brushes his hands through her hair with a gentleness she has never felt before.
  • Genji becomes different after that checkup with Angela, everyone notes. He’s definitely not making snide comments or trying to piss Reyes off. He’s having pleasant conversations, and not trying to start fights. He’s started sneaking off to who knows where later in the evenings. 
  • Reyes gets suspicious, and upon investigations, stumbles upon a certain doctor and ninja kissing in the med bay.
  • Genji has never heard so many Spanish swear words linked together in one sentence before, also, he’s terrified he’s going to die.
  • Boy was that fun to explain
  • Morrison is actively against it, Dad Mode™ going off the charts. He doesn’t trust the Shimada as far as he can throw him, and Mercy and Genji are made well aware of it. 
  • Reyes is protective too, but more in the sly, ‘hope you’re taking good care of our doctor because if you don’t there won’t be anybody there to patch you up after I’m done with you’ way
  • Tracer and McCree are full supporters of the relationship, even helping keep Morrison off their backs.
  • In the end, it’s a common sight to see the former Shimada Clan member and the world renowned doctor holding hands while strolling through the garden out back

Whoa, much longer then I intended but yeah, hope you enjoyed! <3 I love any AU involving Gency because I’m garbage.

WIPs you should be following

((So I finally made a list. This is the main list, with the big/long/amazing works that you should be reading. I will make a different list with works that are starting and I like in the near future.))

Bell, Book and Candle by skittidyne

Magic, Witches, Supernatural Hunters, Ghosts, multiple ships

Suga’s life currently consists of doing odd jobs for Kiyoko (usually herding lost ghosts into the afterlife) and being a cat dad. He’s fine with this. So, of course, it can’t last. It all starts with a fake luck spirit haunting an unsuspecting kid—no, it starts with an immigrant witch trying to summon an uncontracted demon—or maybe it starts with the tengu eggs and the selkie thief—no, Suga knows it probably started three years ago and it’s just now falling down around his ears.
TT: If anyone is curious, I am probably the person who has reread bbac completely the most. And if anyone wants to challenge me, then I will just reread it again (please challenge me). This is genuinly my favourite work of fiction, including published work. I would be surprised if someone has not read it yet, but if you haven’t go make yourself a favour and read it. Warning: forget about your life for about three days, because it is LONG.

Say You’ll Remember Me by thefreakyfashionistawriter

A/B/O, Mpreg, future!fic, iwaoi

Iwaizumi Hajime hadn’t seen Oikawa Tooru since they graduated high school, when Oikawa decided to up and run away for unknown reasons. But after graduating from four of the most stressful years of his life and moving to Tokyo, Iwaizumi runs into Oikawa where he’d least expect him; and Oikawa’s not alone.
TT: I know some people don’t really like ABO, but believe me when I say that it is done amazingly in this story. The writing is wonderful, and you end up really invested in the story. Give it a try, and you will clicking on that subscribe button before you know it.

But for me, there is a storm by Authoress

Pacific Rim Au, Mecha, Action, multiple ships

Sometimes you have to make choices you don’t like, or will regret into countless sleepless nights, and sometimes you’re just following orders. But if the other option is certain death for your entire species, you will make those decisions. That’s what it means to be a pilot.
…Or so Daichi and Sugawara keep telling themselves as they activate the two least compatible recruits for the much-needed third Jaeger assist. The kaiju are learning, evolving, and coming in faster than anyone is comfortable with, and the only option left is to evolve with them. Who knows? Maybe the rookies will be the ones to turn the tide of the war.
TT: This is just a masterpiece. I am pretty sure y'all have read it, but if not then do it, it’s almost as if it was part of fandom lore or something. It is also quite long, so make a gap in your schedule.

Daredevil on the Slope by Smokey310

Skiing, Polyamory, future!fic, bokuakakurotsukki

„Seriously. What kind of supernatural being did I piss off to deserve this,“ sighed Tsukishima on their way up to the mountain. Akaashi sat next to him in the little chair lift and watched the trails of small paw prints disappear between the clusters of fir trees. The snow glittered in the sun, the air was icy fresh and everything would have been picture perfect if it wasn’t for the intruder shaking his snowboard around in the third seat.
“Are you talking about me?” asked Tanaka, whom Tsukishima was very obviously talking about.
“Do you see any other people which the devil would have sent to punish me?”
“There’s some right behind us,” said Tanaka, pointing to the following chair lift filled with an excitedly jumping Bokuto, a maniacally smiling Nishinoya and Kuroo who sat in the middle and looked like he contemplated jumping into the treetops below.
Well – he did have a point there.
TT: Read all of the series, it is fabulous. I don’t tend to like ships with tsukki, but this is so well written that I just fell in love with their interactions. Bokuakakurotsukki golden work. Also, it’s just so hilarious, some of the chapters made me laugh hard enough that my roommate had to ask me if I was dying.

It’s lonely on Jupiter by Skyestiel

Science Fiction, Aliens, University Au, iwaoi

“It isn’t often that someone comes along and surprises Iwaizumi. He’s not easily caught off guard, not at all. Or at least that’s what he likes to think. So, when Oikawa Tooru shows up, a living, breathing oxymoron strutting about on two solid legs, he must admit that he’s a little impressed.”
or: oikawa’s always loved aliens but never thought he’d actually fall in love with one
TT: The alien Au that the fandom needed, but doesn’t deserve. This is SO good. I just love it so much. There is also a bunch of sidepairings which are amazing, but the iwaoi is incredibly cute.

Blood in the Water by ChosenOfKagami

Fantasy, Pirate/Sailor/Merfolk Au, Adventure, Violence, bokuaka, multiple ships (literally and figuratively)

The Corvus is a merchant ship known throughout the islands for its (seemingly) mess of a crew. Despite having one relatively simple goal - to deliver their shipments in one piece and on time - the lot seems to have a knack for running into trouble. Most of which involves pirates and drama among merfolk.
TT: This is genuinely gold. I love it so much. Merfolk AUs are what keep me alive, and this one is the main reason why. The adventure feels so fresh and interesting, I just can’t stop reading.

This Will Be by Metis_Ink

Sawamura Brothers Au, Growing up, Alternative Universe, daisuga

Sugawara first encountered Sawamura Daichi and his bad-tempered teenage brother in the church halls before his best friend’s wedding. He could fully admit that after that the rest of this story was all Tobio’s fault.
TT: The story that will make all of your romcom-loving hearts happy. Family drama mixed with fluff mixed with an amazing universe mixed with really good writing. What else could you ask for?

How Icarius fell in Love with the Sun by tsukkkiii

Fake Relationship AU, Alternate Universe, iwaoi

Oikawa has to find a fiance within a week or he has to leave Japan and thus his successful career and his friends. Obviously the best idea is to knock on his new neighbor’s door at 11 pm and ask, “Will you marry me?”
Kind of a The Proposal AU. (Plot different)
TT: Fake relationships Aus are the dream of every fan, and this one is just perfect. You will really fall in love with the characters, and the plot is movie-worthy.

The Chronicles of Our Mistakes by Mehhh

Magic, Supernatural, Urban fantasy, multiple ships

Things don’t go bad with one big fuck up, one big mistake. No, things go bad because a series of steps were taken to a certain point of time where all those little missteps you took down the path come snowballing at you.
And that one day (night) where you find yourself walking to certain doom with three witches who, at some point, had the idea you enjoyed their company, you think back to your steps, wondering which ones brought you to this moment. Little ‘perhaps’ and little 'maybes’ float around your head as you try to find the answer.
Perhaps it was walking into that accursed apartment, laying your eyes on the stunning (brutal), raven haired boy that was currently on your right. Maybe it was learning that first spell, the one that made you feel nauseous but excited at the same time, all due to the grey haired angel (devil) currently on your left. It was most likely meeting the intelligent (insane), Oikawa Tooru, who was currently walking ahead of you, leading your merry (fucked) band of misfits into a portal to hell.
TT: (For those who are picky about second person POV don’t worry, because the story is not written in the same POV than the summary.) The story is hilarious, and amazing, and page-turner (or screen-scroller, i guess) and incredibly good. The supernatural elements are amazing, and the universe that is built is so, so interesting. And I remember that one chapter made me laugh so much that I managed to wake up my roommate.

And that’s it folks. There are loads more that I wish to put down, but I kinda spent most of my time rereading bits and pieces of these fics and now don’t really have more time. I will make more lists of amazings WIPs in the future, so if there is one you love and haven’t spoke of please send me a link :D Do not forget to leave comments to these lovely writters and subscribe. (if any of the links doesn’t work please tell me so I can correct them asap, or if i made some typo)

Take Me Home Pt 3
  • Featuring: Oda Nobunaga from Samurai Love Ballad: Party
  • Rating: T
  • Part: One | Two | Four | Five
  • Author’s Note: Changed how this part ended because of the current battle event now… SERVE ALL THE KONPEITO!! Enjoy! 

It had been several days since you fainted. Several days since you found out the cause. It hadn’t sunk in yet. Well, now that you thought about it, it made sense. The loss of appetite, feeling nauseous in the mornings, and the most important factor, not having your monthly period. You’d put it down to the stress, but nope. It wasn’t the stress. How could you be so stupid?

You were pregnant. Pregnant with Lord Nobunaga’s child.

You had to remind yourself to breathe. Every time you thought about how you were carrying his child, your mind went blank. How was it all going to work out? You weren’t showing yet, which was a relief. But, in a few more months, your stomach would grow. You sighed quietly, looking down at the food on the tray in front of you. You didn’t have much of an appetite still, but knowing what you knew, you picked up the bowl of porridge.

“I thought you’d finished eating by now.”

[Blog post] Farewell to Farewells! - MIMORI’s Garden

31st of March and 1st of April, the day µ’s performs its final at Tokyo Dome has finally arrived.

μ’s Final LoveLive!~μ’sic Forever♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪~

Although I’ve been waiting for Tokyo Dome all this time, I still think it’s better if that day never comes.

With memories for the past 6 years all jumbled up, I welcomed final live with scattered feelings.
Although I said during the last MC “I’ll continue the rest in my blog!”, it’s been a week since final live has ended. Somehow I’ve been in an “empty” state… I’ve thought of writing a few times but, I really don’t know where I should start….
To everyone who has waited, sorry

But,

I’ve finally compiled everything after looking back at everything that has happened up until now, only then can you see the end of the story… when I think of that I feel sad all of a sudden.
Maybe as time passes, I’d be able to face these feelings.
That’s why, please wait a little longer.


Just that,
Before this there’s something I want to tell everyone,
And that is my heartfelt gratitude ❤

First of all,
To all the fans who’ve made our dreams come true together, thanks a lot ♥
It’s all thanks to everyone’s support that we were able to experience so many miracles and witness so many different sceneries.

This time there were live viewings not only in Japan but also 10 other different countries. That’s really amazing, when I think that so many fans from all over the world were able to witness our final live, I get a warm feeling in my heart.

Because I’d feel sad when I think that’s the final, I decided to give it my all to have fun and enjoy the live this time.
At the end when everyone sang “Bokutachi wa Hitotsu no Hikari”,
The tears I’ve been holding back started flowing out.
To be surrounded by such warm feelings as we leave the stage… is really something fortunate.
At the end after we left the stage, we heard everyone chanting “µ’s! µ’s!”, the 9 of us just listened quietly as our tears flowed.


Everyone, thanks for all the love even at the end of the end.



And so,

To my beloved µ’s members, Emitsun❤ Ucchi, Rippi❤ Shika-chan❤ Pai-chan ❤ Soramaru❤ Kussun❤ Nanjou-san❤ thanks a lot for the past 6 years♥
The time I’ve spent with my everyone who’re my best companions, and also my biggest rivals is my treasure.
Together we’ve laughed, cried, be frustrated… sweat a lot and reached here step by step.
For the past 6 years, there has been many instances where we overlap with µ’s in the anime…
Actually, I think that we’ve faced more difficulties and happiness than the anime… we’ve supported each other and have come this far by continuously doing our best.
I’ve realised once again that we’re really µ’s.


I’m very happy to have met such wonderful companions.♥
Everyone, thank you and please take care of me from now on too.♥



At last,

Sonoda Umi, thank you ♥

My life have had big changes since I’ve met Umi-chan.
At first, I thought our personalities were totally different but, slowly you’ve let me see many different expressions of yours, I’m really happy as I felt like I slowly got closer to Umi-chan ♪

The 6 years I’ve spent with Umi-chan as a 2nd year in high school.
Every moment of our youth were dazzling… at any rate it was a lot of fun!!


Really thanks a bunch ♪ love you forever ❤


Other than that, there’s also the producer Kisara-san who has been supporting us all this time and all the staff,
Kimino-sensei, Murota-san, Director Takahiko,

Ishikawa Yumi-sensei, Keiko-san, Maimai-san, Ayaka-san, Koezu-san, Tomo-chan and Kiyuno-san who handles the choreography,
The make-up artists Nagata-san, Shimizu-san and the stylist Kyoko-san who always transforms me into Umi-chan,

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart ♥


In any case, those 2 days were like a dream and incredibly fun



Thank you ❤


Farewell to farewells!
That’s a daring “Hello!” to the future

suzuko

Robbie asking you out

Y/N’s p.o.v.

“Come in the water please?” “No thank you” “why not, y/n?” “because I can’t” “why not?” “because I can’t go in the water” Robbie cocks his eyebrows, we were at the beach with a group of friends, they were all in the water and I was just sitting on the sand minding my own business. “please y/n?” “Robbie… no and you are dripping all over me” He wasn’t buying it though, before I knew it he had me thrown over his shoulder and was heading towards the water. “Robbie. NO! put me down” “Nope, come in the water” ughh, damn this boy is stubborn. “I mean it Robbie put me down” he stopped and jolted me around, “why?” “girl things” “what?” “just please. put me down” “only if you tell me why” there we go again. Being stubborn. “its personal, Robbie” “y/n… I’m will throw you in the water if you don’t tell me what’s up” I sigh and slump over his shoulder. “I’m on my period, Robbie” I hung off his shoulder not sure if he heard me or not, it was when he put me down that I knew he heard, I sigh and watch as he stares at me, “oh, sorry, I didn’t know” I pat his cheek “it’s okay. You didn’t know. I’m fine really. I’m just going to sit up there with our stuff, okay?” he nods throws his arm over my shoulder, “I’ll come too” “You really don’t have to come, go and have fun with the guys” “we can have fun up there. Now don’t argue with me” I roll my eyes but do as Robbie says.

************
“Wanna go for a walk and get some ice cream or something?” I shrug, “sure” “we don’t have to if you don’t wanna” “no, lets go” Robbie stands up and reaches his hand out to help me up, “should we tell them or just go?” “lets just go. They wont mind. Besides I was going to head off before everyone else anyway. Wanna walk me home afterwards?” Robbie nods before picking my bag, unzipping and passing me my hoodie.

*************
“here you go miss” Robbie hands me an ice cream and smiles, “miss?” he nods and joins me down at the table, sitting across from me. “So fun day at the beach?” “Robbie…. I sat on the sand all day” “we had a nice walk here didn’t we?” “walk? You gave me a piggyback ride, which by the way, was fun” he laughs and nods, “glad you enjoyed it” we sat talking for a little while before heading home.

***************
“Look, a lolly shop” Robbie points out a small store in a large block of shops, “I’ve been looking for that shop for ages, I’m going in” I smile widely at Robbie as he nods, “go on then” “oh, I wasn’t asking for your permission, I was telling you” he rolls his eyes before taking my hand and dragging me towards the small colourful store filled with different kinds of lollies. I may or may not have been a little too excited… “Y/N, you are like a child in a candy store” I give him a ‘are you bloody serious’ look, “oh right…. you are a child in a candy store” I pout, okay, he has a point, “hurtful…” “sorry” let me tell you this, I went into that shop with nothing and came out with 3 bags of sour gummy worms, 2 bags of skittles, 4 rolls of fizzy lollies and 4 rolls of polos, the lady gave me a weird look but oh well, I earned that money, I’m going to spend it on whatever I want. “I think I’m good to go, Robbie” “yeah, I think you have enough there for everyone” “shush. I’ll be outside waiting”

************
Robbie finally came out the shop 20 minutes later, but he wouldn’t tell me what he got, all he said was ‘time will soon reveal itself’ like what on earth does that mean? crazy British boy…. cute loveable British boy. I dump my not so secret stash of lollies in my room and flop on to my bed, “missed my bed” “right out” “what?” “go down stairs, Y/N”“you can’t kick me out of my own room!” “no, but I will” I huff and force Robbie to pull me off my bed, “what are you doing in my room?” “time will reveal itself soon” there we go again with that bloody phrase… I thump downstairs and wait for Robbie to come down. He comes down after 30 minutes of thumping around in my room. “Don’t go up there until I tell you too, okay?” its my room, I’ll go up when I want to go up, “fine” “good girl” I poke my tongue out and sigh. “Wanna watch a movie?” “yeah, I guess. Let me go get my lollies” “sit down. You can’t go in there until I tell you” “damn” Robbie chuckles picking a random movie from the self and putting it on. Half way through the movie I found my head on Robbie’s lap. “I need to pee be right back” Robbie nods not taking his eyes off the TV, I was going to the bathroom but I was also going to look in my room and see what he had done to it.

**********
I open the door to my room slowly, preparing myself to see a mess but what I saw was the complete opposite, well kind of the complete opposite. I open the door fully and stand in the doorway taking in what he had done. He bought a load of Hershey’s kisses and scattered them all over my room, small ones all over my floor and 2 large ones on my bed with a note. I carefully walk to my bed, not bothering to pick the chocolate drops up off the floor, pick up the note and read it, “Dear Y/N, now that I’ve 'KISSED’ the ground you walk on… will you go out with me?” I look around my room and spot Robbie leaning against the doorframe, “Robbie, this is adorable” “did I tell you that you could come in here?” “I know I’m sorry but it was killing me” “I’m glad you like it?” “like it? Robbie, I love this, but you really shouldn’t have, if you wanted to ask me out you should have just asked, not go through all this trouble” “I wanted to make it special. Just for a special girl” I smile and walk over to Robbie, “this is cute, Robbie” “I did try really hard to keep it from you for as long as I could” “I’ll go out with you, Robbie” he smiles and wraps me in a hug, he soon lets go and bends down quickly, “shall we share this kiss?” he holds his hand out, showing me two little chocolate kisses, “oh my life, I almost died when you said that” he laughed and gave me one before helping me pick up the rest of them.

A/N.
Hey guys, sorry this took a little while to write, I’ve been a little busy with getting everything ready for my host student from Japan, so I haven’t had a lot of time to sit and write. I will try to get as many of the requests done and posted before my host student arrives on Thursday as I can. I think this would be such a cute way to ask someone/be asked out by someone. I hope it’s alright :)

04/19

a/n: Welcome to the second part and I’m very happy to know many people (uhh can I count it as many? 40+ is a lot of notes for me!) liked the first part and waited for this :’) What will happen in this chapter? Hope this train will lead you to a safe place (?)

This chapter, as I’ve ever mentioned, inspired mostly by my favorite llw song, Aki no Anata no Sora Tooku of course, also Fuyu ga Kureta Yokan. Personally, I’m not really satisfied by what I just typed … like I want to indulge more in umimaki but I have to wait for some other time to do it.

And well, I do encourage anyone to post some umimaki for Maki’s birthday too! Haha!

Do enjoy~

Pairing: UmiMaki

Egotistical

Summary- Dan basically ventures into the theories of 2012!Phan. 

Word Count- 1006 

I’m guessing it classes as fluff 

A/N- This isn’t bashing other peoples theories or anything its just a thought i had the other day so here enjoy another of my phanfails ly x 


It was an average Tuesday night in the Dan and Phil household, dinner had been cooked, Dan’s liveshow had concluded and he was left lying on the blue and green patchwork duvet he had grown so accustomed to. Everything seemed so calm, yes he could hear Phil’s rendition of death of a bachelor from the shower and he had Breezeblocks playing at a fairly loud volume, but with the midst of the tour over everything was just tranquil.
