Sorry I was a little late my dude, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Ai Yazawa End-of-Book Notes 1-21

So at the end of every volume of NANA, Ai Yazawa has a brief paragraph about the manga or just some introspection about her life. They give great insight into the series and I think only a few are found on the scans of NANA online, so I thought I’d share them all!

Volume 1

The creator, Ai Yazawa, told us, “I created this story so that it could be enjoyed as a stand-alone and, at the same time, have a complete ending that could be connected to an ongoing series.  I hope you’ll look forward to the future of the two Nanas!”

Volume 2

A note from Ai Yazawa: “I had thought that if the two Nanas met each other, they would probably be constantly fighting, but they seem oddly friendly.  What’s up with that?!  It’s one of me (not so) seven wonders (ha-ha).”

Volume 3

Since childhood, the artists I’ve looked up to haven’t been writers and illustrators, but mostly musicians.  Music provides me the most emotional effect and excitement.  If there was no music, I don’t think my creative juices would boil.  Music is that important to my life.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 4

I realized one day that there are hit songs with the same names as the main female characters, NANA, JUNKO, and SACHIKO (the kanji for JUNKO is different, though).  It’s not that big a deal, but I sometimes just hum the melodies longingly.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 5

In the initial drafts, Nana’s band was a rockabilly band like the Stray Cats.  But due to various circumstances, I didn’t keep it that way.  But if they were rockabilly, Ren, Nobu and Shin would have had pompadours.  And Yasu too?

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 6

When I was a child, I used to take piano lessons.  Even after I stopped taking lessons, I bought sheet music I liked and continued playing.  I’ve had my hands full for several years now, but one of these days I’d like to learn how to play jazz piano, which I’ve wanted to do for years now.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 7

I had an opportunity to interview a group of professional musicians.  I showered them with questions, but they answered willingly, and it was very helpful.  I was having problems balancing the fictional world of manga-like simplicity and gorgeousness with a sense of reality.  But I realized again that what’s important is the humanity of the characters.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 8

When I was in high school, there was a cool girl in my class who was a lone wolf.  I was really into a foreign New Romantic-type band then, and when she asked me one day, “Do you want to go to their concert together?” I was overwhelmed.  My heart fluttered more than when I was with my boyfriend (☺).  Have you had a Hachiko experience like that?  - Ai Yazawa

Okay, but imagine a medieval adventure fantasy where asexuals sell their services to parties who have to travel past sirens/incubi/succubi in order to fulfill their quests.

Imagine young witches and warlocks going through a final wizardry test where they have to square off against every magical creature they’ve ever learned about, and everyone is really confused as to how that one team just strolled past the sirens/incubi/succubi, and also as to why afterwards they high-fived, said “Aced it!” and then laughed for ten minutes straight.

Imagine a villain dousing a hero with a love potion and then unshackling her, expecting mindless devotion, only to have her then stab him and say “I’m aromantic, actually.”

Imagine an incubus carefully choosing a target and ending up on her couch with a tub of ice cream as she assures him that he is really good at his job and he can’t help it that he happened to pick an ace target.

Imagine an ace sailor who has to tie up his companions in the hold and sail the ship by himself whenever they encounter mermaids, and since it’s just him it’s really slow going, and he spends the entire time griping about allosexuals to the mermaids, who in turn gripe about how sick they are of having to target sailors before the sailors target them.

Imagine a love god trying to set up a pair of aro ace soulmates and putting them in increasingly romantic and/or risque situations, only to pull his hair out in frustration as they ignore or fix every situation and just become better and better friends.

Just like, fantasy aces and aros, y’all.

Let Them Have This

It’s almost midnight when Dex takes his last load of laundry out of the dryer.

He needed to run it three times and sat in a folding chair in the cold basement to make sure it didn’t start to smoke.

His sweatshirt is still a little damp but his socks and t-shirts are dry and that’s really all he can ask for.

He pats the top of the dryer in thanks for not catching fire and then gives it the finger for all the hell it’s caused him and hoists the laundry basket up on his hip.

They’re only a couple hundred dollars shy from getting a new one and at the rate Jack and Bitty are going….

“Sweetheart, honey.”

Bitty’s voice floats down the stairs and Dex takes them two at a time to get to the top.

“What are those?” Eleven asked, looking at the bundle of dark red flowers in Jonathan’s hands. 

“These?” he held them out to let her look closer, “They’re roses. A special kind of flower for Valentine’s Day.” 

“Why are they special?” Eleven tentatively brushed a fingertip against the soft petals of one of the roses. 

“Because you get them for a girl you really like, the way I really like Nancy.”

“Love.” It was a statement, not a question. Eleven may not have been the best at speaking, but she was certainly good at feeling. Jonathan’s cheeks turned almost as red as the roses in his hand. 

“Yeah,” he ran his fingers through his messy hair, “I guess so.” 

“Pretty,” Eleven smiled. Jonathan reached into the bouquet and plucked one out, handing it to her. 

“Careful,” he said, “Sometimes the stems have thorns.” 

“But they’re not for me,” Eleven hesitated, her hand hovering over the stem.

“This one can be,” Jonathan assured her, “Like you said, they’re for girls you love. And I love you like you’re my little sister.”

An excerpt from a Valentine’s Day fic I wrote a while back. 

The First House - A.K.A Your Rising Sign/Ascendant

This is the first part of a twelve part series briefly explaining how the signs work in each house. Enjoy!

Aries Rising: A leader, you are very headstrong and bold. Because of this you come off as selfish and arrogant to those around you. You have a natural birth chart because it is said that you have earned it in your past life, meaning that you are quite lucky than most signs. Your best qualities are being courageous, having a need to succeed, and having lots of energy.  

Taurus Rising: You are very concerned with keeping everything together so stability is important to you. You aim for having a secure home so you will do what it takes in order to achieve it. By others, you are seen as a person who is patient, takes their time, and stubborn in their ways. 

Gemini Rising: Dual personalities partake in the Gemini ascendant as well. There are those Gemini risings who are either bubbly and talkative, or there are those that are witty and clever. You are very curious, and want to learn about everything and everyone. You thrive in chaos, and are able to focus on more than one thing at a time, even if it looks like you are not paying attention at all. Best quality? Social butterflies. 

Cancer Rising: This sign is a very thoughtful and caring one. People tend to pour their problems and feelings on you because you are able to understand their feelings more so than others. It is easy for them to take advantage of you so learn when to stop being everyone’s therapist. Like a crab, you only come out of your shell when you see fit, but when you do you can become pretty social. 

Leo Rising: Off the bat you attract attention whether it be from your charisma or looks. You would make a great spokesperson since you are very grand in your gestures and are demonstrative. You have a sunny vibe to yourself and are courageous and full of pride. Usually creative, you may be talented in the arts. You guys are natural romantics and love to dream, so much so, that you ensure in achieving those dreams. 

Virgo Rising: Like Cancer risings, you are reserved and take your time opening up to new people and places. Because of this, people believe you to be critical and detached. You are very intelligent. You care about your body, so you can be picky in what you eat, and you enjoy exercise. You stress out a lot because you aim for perfection, but remember, nothing and no one is perfect, so it’s okay to be easy on yourself.

Libra Rising: This is the Ascendant of beauty since it is ruled by Venus itself. You have a natural soothing charm that easily attracts people to you. You enjoy being in a relationship for the sake of not being alone, learn to be independent so you are not taken advantage of, conflict can be good. Looking presentable and fashionable is important to you. 

Scorpio Rising: The aura of the Scorpio Ascendant is strong and let’s others know that you are there. You are either loved or hated. Your privacy is important to you. You are very strong and can overcome mental/physical problems more than others. An ambitious sign, you can be competitive and want to be very successful in what you are trying to achieve. 

Sagittarius Rising: You are very enthusiastic, adventurous, and have a strong desire to explore. You have a need for freedom and independence when it comes to your overall aspect in life. You do not like routine. Spiritualistic and philosophic ways of life are more interesting to you. You have a natural charisma that makes you appear larger than life. 

Capricorn Rising: You take everything seriously, and very competent. The way you are and appear to be is important to you because you believe you look successful, you will be successful. However, you have strong feelings of doubt and are good at hiding them. Very mature for your age, you are smart in your decisions whether it be in wealth or your career. 

Aquarius Rising: Off the bat you are a unique individual and everyone seems to know it. Since you are a very idealistic and humanitarian, you have a keen for being educated in many subjects, so people may come to you for advice. You get a kick out of shocking people because it’s simply just entertaining for you, for example, being the devil’s advocate. You can be stuck in the past or future, so don’t forget to pay attention to the present. 

Pisces Rising: Very “go with the flow” type people you move through life like a fish swimming through a gentle wave. You are irresistibly charming because you are dreamy and soft-hearted. Making decisions is hard for you. One day you can be shy and the next day you can be an outgoing person. You are sensitive, compassionate, and vulnerable.

I am curious as to what your guys’ rising signs are so please, if you reblog this, add your ascendant to the tags or comments!

Some people mistakenly thought of him as a trickster god or as amoral or indifferent or something, and that’s not actually how we present him.

This time, we go into his backstory. And we present him as someone who has suffered great abuse in his normal life, his real life, and therefore when he merged with the Void to become godlike in a sense—not omniscient or omnipotent, that would be kind of boring I think​—he struggles to maintain some sort of human consciousness probably.

But he ends up picking people who are going to pivotal to large numbers of people, people in history, pivotal in that part of the world, and he kind of anoints them and gives the access to great power. And he fully, cynically expects them to abuse that power and lord it over other people, and when they don’t, he’s pleasantly surprised. It’s such a break from the norm from what he’s used to, and so he serves, I feel, like as a thematic touchpoint for the abuse of power.

Bucky Barnes x mutant!Reader

Summary: You were kidnapped by Hydra 10 years ago but now you’re free. You find yourself at the Avengers Tower while you recover and readjust to real life.

Warnings: language (mild), angst

A/N: If you can or have time, feedback is always wonderful. I’ve tagged some pages down below, most are other writers and blogs who I follow (this is a side blog so if you think I don’t follow you, I promise I do) and love and wanted to tag, if you don’t want to be tagged in future fics please just let me know, promise I won’t be offended. Or if you do want be tagged and you’re not you can tell me that too! Hope everyone enjoys the new chapter! ALSO, I have officially opened requests!

It had been a few months and since you didn’t have any family and you had stopped talking to pretty much everyone you grew up with once you joined the army, you didn’t have anywhere else to go, so you had pretty much just made yourself comfy in the hospital wing of the Avengers Tower. It wasn’t particularly exciting since you still were recovering and couldn’t walk around too extensively, but Tony had a TV installed in your room and had given you a laptop so that you could catch up on current events and keep yourself mildly entertained. Though after a few weeks even these items became boring to you. Thankfully a few of the Avengers had warmed up to you and would stop by to talk to you every so often.

Bruce obviously came by more frequently than the others so that he could check on your recovery process but he usually stayed to chat afterwards, if he didn’t have anything else to do. You enjoyed his company though so you didn’t mind having to see him all the time. He was always so kind and thoughtful, although he could talk your ear off sometimes. You had gotten so comfortable around him that you had even started to mess with him some when he would go off on his tangents. Science, it was always about fucking science, while you loved how passionate he was, it just wasn’t a topic you could focus on so you would start playing with your powers while he talked. You would try to see how many times you could turn the flashlight in his lap coat pocket on and off, or slowly start to turn invisible one limb at a time just to see how long it would take him to notice. You had actually managed to become a floating head once while he went on a tangent about micro neurons. He didn’t seem to mind your little games, after all it was pretty safe to assume that he knew you were getting bored.

Your favorite visitor was Natasha, she and you could talk for hours about combat and weapons training. It almost made you excited to get back into the gym just so you could spar with her. She was always blunt with you too, which you deeply appreciated. Sometimes you felt like the others thought you were going to shatter into a million pieces if they said the wrong thing. Natasha would even sneak her guns up to your room so you could clean them for her, she hated doing it herself and it gave you something to do that was actually productive even if it wasn’t the most important task in the world.

You had learned so much about everyone in the tower during your time there except for Bucky. He would stop by to say hello every once in a blue moon but he rarely stayed to talk and even when he did it was just cordial conversation. He did bring you presents though which you thought was odd. He would bring you books, movies, and other random things, like one time he even brought you plums. You tried to ask Natasha about him but she pretty much told you that it was his business and he would tell you when he was ready and you knew that if she wouldn’t tell you then sure as hell that no one else was going to so you dropped the subject.

Today was pleasantly different from the past few weeks, today you got a special visitor, Mr. Tony Stark himself had stopped by and challenged you to play a few games of chess. Although you weren’t very good, you cherished the few times you had spent with Tony and didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to talk to him some more. Plus, you had been thinking about wanting to become an Avenger once you had healed and could get back into training and you knew he was the one you were going to have to persuade to let you stay.

You were starting to get more restless by the day and it gave you lots of time to think about what you were going to do with yourself now that you had the opportunity for a future. You started to think about how growing up in the system you always had taken it upon yourself to protect the other kids in your foster homes, even though most of the time it would get you into trouble, it gave you a sense of purpose and belonging that you otherwise never thought you had. Your squad in the army was the closest thing you ever had to a real family, and the Avengers reminded you so much of them that you couldn’t help the growing desire you had to join them. Sitting in a hospital bed all day getting waited on hand and foot wasn’t exactly your idea of a good time and you were starting to get restless. Sometimes you could get Wanda to walk the halls of the hospital wing with you but the more you talked to everyone and learned about what they were doing you just wanted them to like you as much as you were starting to like them.

“HA! Check mate, again!” Tony exclaimed as he dramatically knocked over your king. You hadn’t even realized you had spaced out while playing the game, although it didn’t particularly matter since this was the 3rd game in a row he had won in less than 10 moves.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, why don’t you go get a deck of cards, then I’ll show you how to play a real game.” You brushed off his gloating as he did a little victory lap around the room. You had gotten really good at poker while deployed on your first tour, before you joined special teams, so you dared someone in the tower to challenge you to a game.

Tony finally sat back down and you figured now was as good of a time as any to talk to him about joining the Avengers. “Tony can we have a serious conversation for a minute?” You bowed your head a little, worried that Tony would see the nervousness in your eyes. You didn’t want him to think you weren’t ready just because you were anxious right now.

“Of course Y/N, is everything okay? Do you need a bigger TV? Are the nurses taking good care of you?” He started to get antsy as you took longer and longer to decide how to actually ask the question burning in your head.

“I want to join the Avengers please.” You lifted your head up to look him directly in the eye trying to feign some confidence in the words that you had just blurted out. He seemed shocked at first but his face quickly softened.

“Y/N, do you really think you would have stayed in the tower this long if we didn’t want you to join us? I mean seriously with your abilities AND your training, we could definitely use you on the team.” Tony quirked an eyebrow and stared back at you, a little dumbfounded. You hadn’t really thought about that, you kind of just thought they were being nice since you didn’t really have any where else to go. You reached across the table and pulled Tony into a tight hug, he chuckled and recriprocated. It was quite a confidence boost to hear that he had been thinking about this too.

All of a sudden, the door creaked open, you looked over and saw Bucky slipping into the room. “Hey, um, sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt, I just wanted to drop off some new books for you.” He held up the canvas bag filled to the brim with books for you to read. Honestly you hadn’t even gotten through the last bag of books he brought but you felt bad telling him that so you broke away from your hug with Tony to take the bag and thank him.

“Hey Barnes, guess what!” Tony piped up, clearly not sensing the hesitation and angst Bucky had about being in the room right now.

“What Tony?” Bucky rolled his eyes and shifted in place, not leaving his spot next to the door. He clearly had hoped to just drop the books off and leave.

“Once Bruce gives Y/N a clean bill of health, she’s going to start training with us to be an Avenger!” Bucky’s head shot up to look at Tony and then to you, his eyes going wide. You weren’t sure if he was excited or nervous, god damn he was so hard to read.

“Oh, wow, that’s great.” His words seemed enthusiastic but his tone left much to be desired. You really wished he would just say what he was thinking. “Well, uh, I gotta go, I’m supposed to be meeting up with Steve in the gym. Congrats Y/N, and, um, let me know if you need any help training.” And with that, he slipped out the door as quickly as he could.

“What the fuck was that?” You turned to Tony in time to see him shaking his head.

“Don’t read too much into it, Y/N, Bucky is a complicated guy but I know he’ll warm up to you eventually.” He put his arm around you and guided you back to your bed.

“Complicated seems like a bit of an understatement.” You huffed as you sat back down still clinging to the bag of books Bucky had given you. Even though you couldn’t get him to have a real conversation with you, you really liked Bucky and wanted to be friends with him. Everyone kept telling you that he’d warm up and that you both had so much in common but he just seemed so self conscious around you, and you around him that you weren’t ready to believe that the two of you would ever truly be close. But now that you were going to be an Avenger, you had much bigger things to worry about than how to make Bucky be your friend. I mean for fucks sake you hadn’t been to a gym in 10 years, you were going to be in for some rough training.
