Hello guys! Here’s something that started as a little fx exercise in class ! (as you can expect i wasn’t able to get it done for the initial deadline 2 months ago)

It’s just for fun, with a universe i like, nothing too complicated! =)

2005 週刊男前ニュース

嵐・世界初の頭上ステージ『ジャニーズ ムービング ステージ』

The idea of a moving stage isn’t pioneered by Arashi or Jun. Western acts like Michael Jackson, Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC have used moving stages in their concerts. BUT it was the details of Arashi’s moving stage that made it a world’s first - a transparent, fully-functional OVERHEAD moving stage with a height of 4 metres, width of 18 metres and distance move of 90 metres, the concert was their ONE summer tour in 2005.

《ジャニーズムービングステージ》
1.観客の頭の真上を演者を乗せて通過する
2.透明なステージ上で移動しながら演者は歌い踊れる
3.観客は真下から演者本人を見ることができる

Again for 2014 “THE DIGITALIAN” concert, it wasn’t the first concert to have synchronised penlights (Coldplay had it too) BUT to involve the audience and be controlled by them onstage to not just 1 but 5 or more colours and synchronising to the beats of the music.

What makes Arashi (Johnny’s) concerts an EXPERIENCE to attend are the details:
- Balloons and streamers ✓
- Water fountains and waterfalls ✓
- Water screen effect ✓
- Hanging overhead cable wire works ✓
- Fireworks over the night sky ✓
- Sunset as part of the song atmosphere ✓
- Carts and carriages of different sizes for solo, duo, group ✓
- Floating balloon structures that goes around the dome  ✓
- Car carriage platform that goes around the dome ✓
- High-rising individual or group platforms ✓
- Transparent overhead moving stage ✓
- Remote-controlled synchronised penlights ✓
- Shape of the stage and walkways (花道) ✓
- Design and details of the stage background like kabuki curtains ✓
- Live orchestra and band ✓
and many more

Unfortunately, most people outside of Japan do not know it because they have never watched an Arashi concert and Johnny’s do not advertise it to the world.

More of Eleanor’s diary

@lady-eleanor-vane posted several auction pictures of several pages of Eleanor’s diary, with the request of help for people to decipher what is written.

God knows I came away not half as well pleased as when I arrived with an engagement I had little hope of shaking off. All being so ill used for want of a pleasant nature. Hither to I had no quarrel with him, not knowing of him personally tho’ stories of exploits had reached us one is not given to taking them rumours and tales to heart for that is what they be. Just exactly that. When all is said and done this is a man someone is going to have to dispose of sooner, rather than later. [10]3

Notorious Prisoner On Trial. Court reports on Eleanor Guthrie, trade boss of Nassau. ….. [? not sure on the last word]” (Courtesy also to  @betterhiddenbizarre who also figured this text out)

Not 100% sure who Eleanor wrote about here, but this is around the time of the trial. It seems to me this is about Woodes Rogers after her meeting with him on the Delicia and he almost put her on the Gloucestershire back to London. I can’t imagine Eleanor wrote this about Captain Hume or Mr. Underhill. The “engagement” Eleanor talks about within the given context is meant to be taken as “agreement”.

So, if written after the scene of Rogers wanting to put her on the Gloucestershire for “fucking Vane”, then we can conclude that Eleanor accepted to cooperate with him for her own survival, and had little hope of being able to wittle out of it, that she was more confident and pleased of her deal with him before arriving on the ship than she was after the meeting. She feels ill used by him for her bluntness. Until then she had no “quarrel” (no ill feelings towards him) because she did not know him, but she had heard of him and his “exploits” (explorations) along with some dark rumors and tales, which she still tends to reject. And at this point she thinks that either she or others (in Nassau) will have to get rid of him. The “Notorious Prisoner” seems more like a spiteful signature, signing off. 

LEFT PAGE “We need to be able to make money the way London makes money through collection - collecting not hunting which amounts to legitimacy. I need to challenge him, ask him, beg him to give up the girl in spite of how his men may feel [22]2″

This is about Charles Vane, before she goes to the Fort to ask him to give her Abigail.

RIGHT PAGE: “I failed, my evenfall (?) prepared speech. He spouted (?) his humans shall … about taking and keeping, and lording behind desks … …. or anything else. Very well. I shall follow his example and take her, and look him in the eye and give him every chance to deny me. That is also legitimate. [23]3″

Eleanor continues on the Abigail issue, comprizing Vane’s ideas, and she decides to just take Abigail, using his words about looking a man in his eyes and giving him a chance to deny him.

The numbers at the end of each write-up do not seem to be a date after all. There was not a month in between Eleanor begging him for the girl and taking her.

“According to Marcus he requested their attendance in … having been confound to bed following a doggy spell. His fever worsens. Somewhere in a previous entry I have a cure for fever. It may be more ?eacuous than Marcus dethoxing and bloodletting I suspect, why/may/way I know the pressure upon him to find and recover the Cache is what ails him.

I can move forward, which fact I think he found reassuring. [1]2″

I am pretty sure that I may be reading a word here or there wrong. But the left page relates to Woodes having been taken ill, Dr. Marcus’s treatment, and how Eleanor thinks that Rogers’ worries over the cache is what worsens it all or lies at the foundation of hm becoming ill. The right page seems to be about her now being the go-between the council and Rogers, and her struggles with Chamberlain, insofar that it seems either Rogers or Chamberlain expressed worry but that she managed to reassure him o her ability to move forward, beyond what she cannot forget.

“From the protection of the Fort we observed the mayham as the Pirates sailed into Nassau Harbour utterly oblivious to the underwater blockade below the holds sank (?) four fo the hardest waters.

Utter confusion and Ct BR watching from above, re/uncovered (?) and empowered (?) as the cannons fired repeatedly at the struggling ships. Only a man once engaged in Navy and Maritime business could devize such a scheme. And I keep the Baby open(?) of false Digestion.

(Mrs. Hudson’s concept for Gout)”

Obviously the left page recounts the failed Pirate attack of 4x01 with the blocked bay and sunken ships. The right page is a recipe, given by Mrs; Hudson for gout, but Eleanor uses it to keep the Baby “open” or help with morning sickness I think. Eleanor thus was certain she was pregnant in 4x01 and trying some type of drink with rheubarb, orange peel and seeds, and what seems to be a prayer.

“He finally came out with the real story behind some of his uncharacteristic behavior and decision. Money.

His intent to end his marriage to Sarah had unanticipated consequences one of which entails the intervention by her family with his more significant debtors. They have persuaded these debtors to accelerate the repayments. This will have a waterfall (?) effect and would encourage lesser creditors to also call in these loans, and Woodes would have no choice but to default. He would be in breach of the Law a fugitive. This debt, unsubstantiated previous debt was assumed to bring Nassau to order.”

Eleanor recounts what she learned of Rogers’ debts at the end of 4x01.

Given that we do not see the full pages I can only read some phrases.

LEFT PAGE: “or two, a woman ………. is going to walk ….. threat gate… Is a longboat…. I have place….. Rogers’ ship …. that she’ll …. order to … to…. have “…

RIGHT PAGE: “breach the pledge. I will … command his breath without … And as does ….. jewels ….. ….. the ….. “

Eleanor drew a ship with dolphins jumping near through the waves, and clouds in the sky. Above the little paper it says, “Taking Our Departure from New Providence.” She’s not bad at drawing, adding perspective and shadows to the sails.

Obviously we can make out enough to tell that these pages are about what we saw at the start of 4x05 with Hudson having to walk out of the fort and go out in a longboat to tell Woodes her plan. And she drew her departure as a type of wish-dream.

LEFT PAGE: “I have heard it said that a good dose of /seas…(?) …. beneficial. I fail to see how, unless of course … banting, but even … must be a better …. devesting oneself of no …. pounds than by an… …rge [16]7

Miserable day and still no news [17]8″

RIGHT PAGE PARTIALLY: “…. the “Lamb” … …. a work of art it …. …. me far … (?) I … Lock and Yeast.  … may be, even break  … me p..t… where some of …. ….. of human nature …. accept (?) with a hand which is …. while at …. [18]2

Not sure what the left page is about. Might be about some folk remedy. The miserale day mention and how near to the end of the journal this is written indicates this was written when Eleanor was in the fort waiting for news about the arrival of cache. The right page mentions a Lamb and human nature, and seem more philosophical. It may have to do with a sermon she heard or one of Lambrick’s words to other women. 

If you have corrections or additional words that you can make out, just put them in the comments and I’ll update this post.

ETA: it is possible that Starz may release the diary commercially in print after the S4 finale.

Prompt fulfillment: Person A is taking a bath. Person B is unaware of this fact and also decides to take a bath. Person B accidentally walks in on Person A, completely nude. What happens next is up to you. OT3 bonus: Person C orchestrated the whole thing, and walks in after Person B with a smug grin.

I’ve actually had this sitting unfinished in a folder of mine for months, and that prompt reminded me of it so I finished it up to send it in.

Ten x Rose. Rated Explicit. Super scandalously smutty shower scenes. (Hooray alliteration!) Around 2,700 words.

Slamming the door behind him, the Doctor leaned heavily against it, laughing through his panting.

Even more out of breath, Rose stood next to the console, doubled over with her hands on her knees and trying to breathe through her laughter.

When they glanced up and met each others mirth filled expressions, they both broke out into more giggles.

“I can’t believe… He kissed you!” she squeezed out between gasps.

The Doctor made a skeptical noise and shook his head. “I don’t know what that was, but it was definitely not a kiss.” He shuddered at the memory. “It was all spit and slime!”

She cackled again, remembering his dumbstruck and disgusted face after it happened.

Finally calming down, and able to breathe normally, she stood and turned her gaze to her body, which was covered in an orange, sticky goo. Peering closer at her arm, she sniffed it and made a loud noise of disgust. “What IS this?”

Looking down at his own goo-covered torso, The Doctor rubbed his hands down his chest and scrunched his nose. “I think you don’t really want to know. Perfectly harmless, but a bit gross. It’ll come right off in the shower.”

“Alright. Well then, I’m going to go do that immediately. Meet you in the kitchen after for tea?”

“I’ll have it ready for us,” he said with a toothy grin.

She turned and disappeared down the corridor towards her room.

The island still has some problems. I keep finding floating plants (arrrgghh!!) And I’m not happy with the top of the waterfall. Some wave effects at the rear of the island need to be moved so it looks like they’re crashing on land and not some weird fountain effect in the sea.

I’ve spent some time deciding what cc i plan to use here and I’m trying to get permission from creators who are still around, though most seem to be ok with their stuff being included in a world, for which I’m grateful.

I’m also debating how foggy i want this world to be. I keep placing fog emitters and then removing them 🤔
