like those moments of perfect harmony

“What do you mean she said no?” Kara yelled, storming after her boss and her sister through the hall of the DEO. “All you had to do was tell her that a homicidal maniac wanted to keep trying to kill her and escaped from prison. She’s like a genius. Surely she could do that basic math.”

Quick review of Kalafina’s and LiSA’s CROSS STAGE

oath sign: This was my first time listening to this song (aside from the sneak peeks we had gotten prior to the complete version). I really liked it even though it’s not something I’d usually enjoy. I am not a huge fan of LiSA’s voice but it fits the mood of the song quite well I think. Keiko’s intro was so freaking awesome, I loved the way she sang it, very sexy (and all those looks *fans self*) <3 Hikaru’s voice is perfect for songs like this and she obviously has a blast performing them XD. Wakana did surprisingly well, I am impressed. Usually I don’t like it when she sings typical “anisongs” but here she managed to make it work. All in all, everyone’s voices blended together nicely, there were only a few moments where they all sounded a tad too shrill.

THIS ILLUSION: I have no idea what this song is originally supposed to sound like but I love the way Wakana’s and LiSA’s voices blend together! Their harmony work is really lovely, I never would have thought that was possible. Wakana struggled a little during a couple of her parts but I think that’s due to the fact that this song (like all of LiSA’s songs) is not suited for her voice. However, all in all it was a nice performance. Also, I love love love the lyrics of this song! WaLiSA hug too PRECIOUS for this world!

träumerei: Awww, it warms my heart to see Hikaru having so much fun on stage. As I have mentioned above, Hikaru was made to sing songs like this. I feel like she sounds better singing this than LiSA does. Once again, great harmony work, their voices blend seamlessly together, sometimes it felt like the two of them became one singer ^_^

The comment section was super precious <3 So cute how LiSA is addressing Hikaru with “chan”, I wasn’t aware that they are almost the same age, only a few days apart. Wakana is so hyper here, I love it!! How she says that she was super nervous and worried because she is so used to having three people on stage. “Eh! It’s not gonna be enough!”XD LOL, but it really turned out well! She actually cried when LiSA first offered to sing this song together with her. Hahaha, typical of Wa-chan. I wish Hikaru would have had the chance to talk a little more. I feel liek she got cut-off >_<

Magia [quattro]: One of their best performances of this song to date, really liked Hikaru’s powerful voice here and Keiko sounded amazing too. Also, DAT Kala-dansu <3

blaze: Not much to say about it except that my favourite part is still the kajiurago-bridge <3 I love how energetic the girls are!

輝く空の静には Kagayaku Sora no Shijima ni wa: Meh, LiSA’s voice really throws me off here. Oh! What a surprise! Wakana and Hikaru join in for the bridge!! LOVE!! WOW! Keiko’s solo part! I think this is the deepest she has ever sung this part!!! *dies* *death by deep Cakey voice* (generally I feel like Keiko was using her extra deep voice during all the performances that day!! I approve!) I liked LiSA more when she was singing Hikaru’s verse but it still wasn’t exactly my cup of tea.

believe: Solid performances but nothing out of the ordinary. Keiko squatting is my aesthetic. :P

identify: I like this performance much more than the one during their Arena Live. For some reason it seems more energetic but that’s just my opinion. I love it when they look directly into the camera, those close-ups are killing me! Also, WaKei <3 LOL at Hikaru and Korenaga ^_^

音楽Ongaku: More WaKei <3 Hikaru’s jumps (and resulting tummy peakage = LOVE); Wakana nailed her part (although her “へ“ was a tiny bit strained towards the end)! Poor girls were really starting to sweat like crazy at this point. Then again, Keiko’s sweaty bangs are my aesthetic.

ring your bell: I forgot that they sung their Arena Live version with the first verse being acoustic. So precious <3 Their looks towards the end looked a little too fierce for this song XD Wakana’s final two “bells” are my favourite things ever!

One Light: Not a big fan of LiSA’s voice here but it was super fun to watch them together. DAT Hi/LiSA combo during “僕は行ける“ was super badass, I loved it. Best moment for the confetti!!


I generally prefer Kalafina’s more toned down lives but once in a while I really love seeing them all hyper and energetic like this. <3 All this Keiko-arm-action will be the death of me some day! Surprisingly I really enjoyed all the collabs! I didn’t like Kalafina’s collabs with Aoi Eir all that much so my expectations for this live were pretty low but I guess I was proven wrong, there’s something about LiSA that I really like. I think it’s because she is so freaking cute! And she has a great stage-presence. Plus, most of her songs have a catchy tune, that definitely helps!

Your face looks so familiar, like maybe I have looked into those eyes everyday in a past life, and your fingers fit snug between the gaps in mine, like perhaps that’s the place God intended them to be, and your laugh is just an octave above mine, as if performing the perfect harmony. You fill my heart with love, and it doubles in size. I don’t know what that all means. But I’m thinkin’ I have loved you long before this moment, and that perhaps I will for the many more that are to come.

Short Fiction: Day Two

A baby seal gets eaten by our polar bear in front of a group of visitors, and suddenly my whole career is on the line. It’s completely backwards when you think about it.  They are the idiots who flooded our comment cards with stupid demands like: “ANIMALS DESURVE TO PLAY WITH EACH OTHER” and “PLUCKY THE POLAR BEAR NEADS A BIGGER SPACE TO LIVE. SHE WOULD LOVE THE ARCTIC ZONE WHERE THE SEALS LIVE.” Always capitalized, with at least one word spelled wrong on every card. What was I supposed to do? Attendance was dwindling because, if I’m being honest, our animals have been here forever and just want to die already. Not to mention Central Zoo has about ten thousand more exhibits than we do. So I went against my better judgment and transferred Plucky to the seal environment.

At first it seemed like it might work out. With daily feedings of mutilated salmon guts hand delivered to her every morning, Plucky had no desire to even try hunting the seals. She pretty much just lazed around like she did in her old habitat, except now, there was the occasional thrill of watching the more adventurous seal pups waddle over to inspect their new cellmate. The touries went bananas for those moments. Cameras flashed and people whispered about the miracle of wild beasts living in perfect harmony. “And here we are invading countries left and right,” I heard a woman say to her husband. We increased ticket sales by 14% in July. Bill from Regional gave me a call to say he was hearing Excellent Things. I took my family out to Red Lobster that night.

A few days later, one of the curious pups got too close and Plucky took a swipe. I don’t think she meant anything by it, but her claws ripped the thing practically in two. She took one bite and decided she wasn’t hungry. Blood everywhere. People screamed.  Someone called the police. An older man fainted, but that was probably a heat stroke. Meanwhile, the mangled pup floated across the little pool and came to rest against the glass display wall, giving all the kids a real great look at her innards, which now dangled from her lifeless body.

Sales dropped to an all time low as the story got out. A newspaper headline read: Catastrophe Strikes - Zookeeper Makes A Chilling Mistake. A different environmental agency showed up every day for a month, each one finding ten new code violations to cite us for. Bill called to say we probably need to consider liquidating. We just aren’t profitable, he says.

I went home that same night and found a letter scribbled on an envelope in the kitchen: “Took the kids to my mom’s for a while. They need a stable place to grow up and you can’t give them that.”

I took a walk through the city to clear my head. At one of the busiest intersections in town, a kitten dashed into the road and got hit by an SUV. The driver didn’t even notice. Nobody screamed. Nobody alerted the press. Nobody fainted. In fact, everyone around me just diverted their eyes and kept on walking.

A kitten is splattered on the pavement and it’s the most natural thing anyone has ever seen.

Love You More

Prompt from the-fangirl-of-millenias: Can you write one about after sex cuddles

`

“Dean.”

“Yeah, Cas?”

“I love you.” Cas purred the words from the back of his throat and he nuzzled his nose deeper into his lover’s neck, drinking up all the warmth that his body had to offer. Cold nights used to make Cas sleepless and cranky but now they were his favorite because he had someone warm beside him.
