I love doing 5th year fics. Normally I go for angst but today I thought, what stressed me out as a teenager? Hope you enjoy some awkward fifteen year old Snowbaz :)@carryon-countdown
Baz felt a moment of rare peace sitting in his quiet bedroom. For once Snow wasn’t obsessively stalking him around Watford. He wished he were entirely relieved but a part of him felt a tiny burst of annoyance. Of course he needed a break from Snow’s attention but why did Snow need a break from him? As if the room were listening to his thoughts, Snow burst through the doorway to their room. He looked frustrated and slightly panicky, his expression becoming worse when he saw Baz lounging on the bed. “Why are you here?” Snow’s question wasn’t tinged with its usual antagonism. “I live here?” Snow huffed. “Usually you’re at football practice right now.” Baz felt his heart stutter. “Stalker.” Snow rolled his eyes. “It’s just the room is usually empty right now.” “Usually yes. But today’s practice was cancelled. So here I am.” Snow bit his lip nervously. “Well I need the room.” “For?” Snow’s cheeks reddened. “Oh gross you are not messing around with Agatha in here.” Snow winced. “That’s not…no I meant…” Baz waited. “I need to practice…dancing.” Baz had not expected that answer. “Um, why?” “For the winter formal.” Baz mentally calculated how far the date of the dance was. “That’s in a month Snow.” Snow huffed and began plugging in his ancient CD player. “Yeah I know. I barely have enough time to get the whole thing down.” “That’s not what I meant. It’s way too far away to be worried about it. Plus…there’s no formal choreography. It’s just a school dance.” “I. Can’t. Dance.” Snow’s shoulders were tense. Baz threw his hands up in a sign of surrender. “Okay, okay! I get it. Just act like I’m not here.” Baz tried to go back to reading. Normally he could completely immerse himself in his studies. But he couldn’t help but watch Snow struggle through basic leading form. His shoulders sagged and he tripped often over his own feet. He managed to do all of this without even a dance partner to distract him. Snow definitely couldn’t dance. At one point he tripped over their carpet and nearly crashed into Baz’s desk. Out of instinct Baz rushed forward to help him, not being as careful as he should be of his vampire enhancements. Snow jumped backwards away from Baz’s outstretched hands. “I’m fine. Stop staring at me like I’m some pathetic loser.” “Then stop acting like one!” Baz snapped. They both paused then, not wanting to get too riled up. The Roommate Anathema was always a helpful threat to keep them calm. Snow looked back at Baz with watery eyes. “I’ll never get this right. I’ve been practicing for weeks already.” Baz wished he could touch Snow’s face, to try to comfort him. “Really?” Snow glared. “Yeah I get it. It doesn’t look like I have.” Baz sighed in frustration. “Merlin Snow I wasn’t trying to be a prat. I’m just surprised that this is so important to you. You’ve slain dragons and chimeras, why do you need to beat this too?” Snow clenched his fist. “That’s the point. I’m good at killing things. How can I ever…date Agatha if I can’t even properly dance with her?” Baz felt himself internally recoil. It somehow always came back to her. But even as he wanted to lash out at Snow he knew it wasn’t fair. Plus, he wanted to help. “Hasn’t Bunce offered to help you practice?” “Yeah, but it hasn’t helped. She doesn’t know how to lead. So I’m not learning what I need to do.” Baz looked away. “I can help.” “What?” He sneered. “I can’t stand the idea of watching you muddle through the steps for the next month. At least this way you can get it done right and then I can have some peace of mind again.” Snow’s eyes widened. “You’ll really help?” “Yes. Now start the CD over again.” Snow scrambled over to the machine and pressed a button. He walked back over and grimaced. “This is going to be awkward.” Baz glared. “Only if you make it so. I’m going to start off leading so you can get the idea. Then we can switch roles so you can practice.” Baz carefully placed a hand on Snow’s waist and lightly gripped his hand with his other. His stomach felt like it might float out of his body. He had never dreamed he would be able to touch Snow like this, much less dance with him. “Just follow my lead. But pay attention.” Snow nodded, his face a mask of concentration. After a pause Baz led him into the dance. Baz knew Snow would get the hang of it eventually. Baz was a fantastic dancer and Snow had a kind of steel determination. Still, a part of him hoped it would take the whole month for Snow to master the steps.

Do you love OTGW?? Interested in celebrating the anniversary of the show?? Love 30 Day Challenges???
If you answered yes to any of these, you should consider participating in the 30 Day OTGW Challenge!
The challenge will be taking place November 1st through November 30th!
The challenge, designed by me, was created to mark the one year anniversary of the show, and to help make the fandom more active! I think it would be a great idea for everyone to show their love for the show and to just have a bunch of fun with it!
The rules are simple: each day is a different prompt/challenge, and people participating can respond to that in any way! This is NOT an art only challenge, any response to the prompt is awesome! (Although any NSFW should be tagged correctly, as this challenge is opened to ANYONE)
Once the challenge starts, this blog will be reblogging as many submission as I can, and will sort of be an easy place to see the great work everyone has done!
The tag for each day will be “30 day otgw day 1″ “30 day otgw day 2″, etc.
You may be asking yourself “what are the prompts for each day?? I have posted them already, but am also including them here:
Day 1 (Nov. 1): Happy Halloween, OTGW! (celebrating the holiday of otgw!)
Day 2 (Nov. 2nd): Happy Birthday OTGW! (marking the year anniversary one day early!)
Day 3 (Nov. 3rd): Episodes 1 and 2 (the old grist mill, hard times at the huskin’ bee)
Day 4 (Nov. 4th): Episodes 3 and 4 (schooltown follies, songs of the dark lantern)

Day 30 (Nov. 30th): Happy Holidays, OTGW! (a cute way to welcome the holidays and to finish the 30 days!)
Since the challenge does not start until November 1st, the task until then is to spread the word! Some challenges get thousands of notes, and I would love to see that happen with this as well. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help spread the word as much as you can, it would mean so much to me and the OTGW fandom.
ALSO!! To participate, you do not need to complete every single day. Any way you would like to join in is completely fine; all participation is greatly appreciated.
A QUICK SUMMARY:
1) The 30 Day OTGW Challenge is taking place from November 1-30
2) It is NOT an art only challenge. ANY response is allowed!
3) All 30 prompts are in this post, and can be found on this blog.
5) THIS BLOG will be reblogging as many responses as possible; they must be tagged using the format “30 day otgw day 1″, “30 day otgw day 2″, etc.
6) Participation in all 30 days is NOT required!
7) The main goal for the next month leading up to the project is to SPREAD THE WORD. I can’t get this all done on my own. If you’re interested, please help this challenge get out there! The more people, the more fun and beneficial to the fandom the project will be. (:
8) Please contact this blog, or my main ( @burglethoseturts ) with questions/concerns/comments
I AM SO EXCITED PLEASE HELP ME GET THIS CHALLENGE GOING!

Firstly, some things about me for some
context: I became a Hyphen probably around August/September this year. I came
to KAT-TUN from Kame’s dramas and he is defiantly my favourite out of the
group. Even though I have joined recently I am very (probably creepily) well
informed about KAT-TUN as I’ve had a lot of spare time for a while - although
that is changing very soon with my new job starting next week.
Secondly I never do text posts and very
rarely use my blog to talk about my personal feeling about the group. However I
want to organise my mind and I am doing it here. Also I am sure more info will
come out about the group. This was written Tuesday 24th Nov from about 3 to 4pm
Please deal with me for a moment
Here’s what I’m thinking…
I’m sure he came to this decision after
lots of thought and consideration to say the least. I just read that Ueda tried
to convince him to stay but said it was impossible. I believe it was confirmed
sometime this year that he has had a secret girlfriend for around 8 years and
lives with her and her mother in Tokyo. It would be wrong for me to say this is
the reason why he left but I’m sure he has things in wants to accomplish in life
that being an jpop idol aged 30+ do not let you do.
He was not kicked out, he is not part
of some shot gun marriage, he chose to leave as staying would not be the
correct decision. I think it is no small deal that he is being allowed to not
renew his contract and tell the fans months before he leaves. This means that
him and KAT-TUN and JE (or J&A or Johnny’s or whatever you want to call
them) are on good terms and there is no bad blood between them.
I think maybe now we might know why
Taguchi cried at the end of Quarter. In the commentary they asked him why and
he said he was very grateful for the fans to have supported them.
3 person KAT-TUN
I honestly find it hard to imagine.
4nin for me had a near perfect dynamic. I had a post planned for ages but put
it off because it was loads of work. Basically, it was I was me analysing the
dynamics. I loved the ‘accidentally-pleasing’ things about 4nin. How in ‘KAT-TUN’
order they went from youngest to oldest, and then short, tall, short, tall, and
also S, M, S, M, and lastly how they go 2 lettters of KAT-TUN, 1 letter, 2
letters, 1 letter.
As a Kame fan I loved how you could
ship him with any member and there was evidence (because he is a massive flirt)!
I loved that they could pair off and have great dynamics as 2 no matter the
pair you put them in (I have a draft about that as well).
I’m sure they will be able to make 3nin
work. I can’t help but think that it’s will look something like Nakamaru with
two children giggling and fighting and calling him ojii-chan than most groups
look. Thinking about that it sound quite funny J
I wasn’t around to see the hole Jin
left get patched up or the hole Koki left get patched up. I’m sure at those
times too it was hard to imagine KAT-TUN without them but Hyphens pulled
through. So that is the main reason why I think KAT-TUN will work as 3nin.
What I really am dreading is JE
abandoning them as a lost cause. Kame is a good money spinner for them with his
drama’s and movies and Nakamaru is popular on Shuichi. I’m not sure about Ueda –
he’s not the most talkative or suited to variety shows but he is a semi regular
on one sports show. If JE choose to they could half their promotional budget
and KAT-TUN could loose popularity and eventually disband. That I think is
worst case scenario. But like I said, as individuals they have their own ways
of getting JE money and KAT-TUN are yet to release a single that doesn’t reach
number 1 so I don’t think (or want to think) that it’s all that likely.
KAT-TUN until the Spring 2016
So as we know Kame has a new drama
coming out January 2016. It’s not announced yet but it’s a given that KAT-TUN
will do the theme for it right? As this is before Taguchi will be leaving we
can expect that this will be Taguchi’s last single with the group. This would
mean that we still have many 4nin KAT-TUN performances, promotions, and
probably a PV to look forward to.
Also their is their TV shows to look
forward to! SCP I believe is a monthly program so we’ll get at least 3 more
Taguchi episodes of that. Hopefully with a goodbye episode or segment for
Taguchi and 3nin saying they will continue hosting it.
Also there is Tame Tabi which I think
is weekly. The episode next week was filmed before the announcement so probably
(to avoid letting the news leak) Taguchi leaving will not be mentioned. However
after that I would not be surprised if Bear/Voice of God will make jibes at the
group and hopefully this will help KAT-TUN appear as a group who can take it
that one more member is leaving.
The 10 year anniversary
Japanese Spring is from February 5th to
May 6th. Because of the language barrier I think it would be wrong to try and
guess if Taguchi is leaving as soon spring begins, or half way through, or at
the end of spring.
KAT-TUN’s 10 year anniversary I believe
is March 22nd. I think what might happen is the 10 year anniversary will be
used as a 3 member KAT-TUN debut.
What I really want to happen is for
Taguchi to be in the 10 year anniversary concert and for them to use it as a
goodbye to 4nin and hello to 3nin. However even if Taguchi leaves before that I
think it will still be ok.
If Taguchi leaves beginning of February
they have February and most of March to prepare as 3nin for the anniversary concert.
This could be done with a single or another mini album like Kusabi. Also there
would be a PV and tons of promotion for them as 3nin and their debut anniversary
and debut 3nin concert.
Will I continue supporting KAT-TUN? (the future of this blog)
It’s hard to say right now as not only
is Taguchi leaving but my own life is changing as well. However I came to this
fandom as a Kame fan and I will most likely stay a KAT-TUN fan because of him.
I doubt I will post about Taguchi after he has left as this is a Kame biased/KAT-TUN
blog. After a few days of mourning I expect I will be back to posting silly
Kame gifs (I’ve got loads ready to go in my drafts) and so on so please stick
I hope KAT-TUN will flourish as 3nin, I
hope that 10 year anniversary will be spectacular, and I wish Taguchi the best
with whatever his life brings next.
For now here are some Taguchi/4nin gifs I have saved and
don’t know how to fit into a post anymore… for a moment I’ll remember the
good times and look forward to the limited ones we have left with 4nin KAT-TUN.
