rikke_leonhart: Owl (Arashi - Ohno/Arafes Love Situation)
[personal profile] rikke_leonhart
This is the kind of post that only happens when I'm ill because a) I'm indisposed of doing anything productive with writing since my brain is mush, b) I'm not indisposed enough, which leads to c) I have too much free time recovering so I lurk around lj too much.

So, because I lurk around too much, I've done a friends cut, since, eh, there were a lot of people I haven't exchanged words with since friending happened? Or we just haven't spoken in a really long time? I'm so sorry, but. Sorry? No hard feelings? If you feel like I'm a stupid, stupid thing because d'uh, we talk all the time, please tell me in a nice and friendly manner?

(Feel free to lavish praise onto Gati because she is the genius behind my two new icons, this one being one of them. Best soulmate in the world <3)

I spent most of last week at work, I'm not even kidding, for someone who's only supposed to work there part time, I sure spend a lot of time there. And because we have not two, not three, but four guys with the same name, conversations like these happen fairly often:

Me: So, K said-
Co-worker 1: K who? Tiny K?
Me: No, weird K. So he said-

Co-worker 2: I don't know, you'll have to ask K about it.
Me: Which K? Old K?
Co-worker 2: No, K T.

Me: And in the end I got K to take my shift.
Co-worker 3: Weird K?
Me: No, tiny K.

Yeah, so that's what happens. We also organized a treasure hunt for one of my co-workers and oh the hilarity. However, last week in itself was a very special brand of hell with a lot of assignments, a lot of work and a truly ridiculous tiny amount of sleep, and it all culminated with me going down Monday night with the flu. So that was fun. Again, I'm terrible at being ill, I'm terrible at being idle. Please someone hand me something to do. So I watched Arafes yesterday, which I stand firm on being a huge influence on my actually rather remarkable improvement. Downside of getting better? My stomach is letting me know its varying degrees of dissatisfaction of me not feeding it what it wants all the time - for the past 24 hours I've been living on a mix of water, steamed fish and melon, and right now, a beef sounds really heavenly even though that is probably not the smartest idea. Baby steps!

Recovering is greatly helped along by Gati, who continues to be the most flawless being in the universe. Lots of tea for me, and also a truly beautiful book full of recipes of cakes and other very delicious pieces of bakery and I can't wait to try them all out <3 Also, she got me the Limited A Edition of the Truth/Kaze no Mukou E single sakdhskgdskd /dies of happiness.

Calling/Breathless! Arashi has the audacity to always do truly great things when I'm incapable of fangirling properly - case in point being Music Station where I was at work. /grumbles. It turned into me watching it very early Saturday morning and I flailed. Also, it needs to be said, that while everyone were busy flailing at Arashi, I was also busy flailing over Perfume even though I preferred their performance from the other day, but Mirai no Museum continues to be flawless and cute as hell. But anyway, back to the boys. I am liking Calling a lot more than I expected - the first time I listened to the previews I liked Breathless better, but then I watched episode 3 of Last Hope and kind of got the good kind of shivers when Calling started and now I think I prefer Calling. Also, Nino's solo in Breathless makes me giggle for some reason, his voice is so hit and miss for me, and this time it's just. Sorry Nino, sorry Nino stans, his voice this time is a miss for me.

However, both songs are excellent examples of my affectionate name Ohno & Friends for Dream, because really, his voice is turned up everywhere in these songs and I agree with that so hard. He needs to have all the solos in the world like yesterday. Chop chop. Also, two new PVs for me to screencap! I will hopefully do them tomorrow and then I roughly only need All or Nothing which will be a test of patience, because I think it's probably one of the worst PVs in the history of bad PVs, and I say that in knowing the history of the Danish music scene. Tamagotchi had a video, okay. It also really surprises me that neither of those videos are for an Ohno drama, since Ohno normally is the one who gets the "darker" themes. Not complaining, I like this type of music from the boys. And Gati told me that people were complaining that these songs sounded like J-rock. Complaining? Excuse me for not seeing the problem, J-rock is awesome. And when will fandom learn that liking something doesn't mean that you have to hate everything else?

For all of today I've been rewatching Ryusei no Kizuna, and man, I am so glad I've watched it before because the pretty from all fronts is seriously distracting this time around, the amount of Nino's and Ryo's pretty is ridiculous. I kind of hate them both a bit, Nino's hair alone is worthy of an altar for worshipping, ugh, everything he does in this drama is perfection. Also, weird to see Toda Erika with meat on her bones, she looked particularly gorgeous in that drama (and also in the PV for Orion *w*), but good for her if she looks like she wants now <3. Unless someone told her to lose weight, in which case that someone needs to get their ass kicked >:(

So thoughts while watching RnK:
- Orion still makes me bawl
- Nino is still a gorgeous fucker
- Ryo is still prettier than what should be allowed
- Beautiful Days is still a gorgeous song
- Koichi remains the perfect, perfect creep and remains charming while creeping
- Takayama/Delusional Chief Clerk/Post-It Guy goes down in history as fabulous

So all in all: Still a flawless drama. And I really need to write more Enomoto/Koichi.

How are you all, you gorgeous people?. I feel like everyone is a bit busy these days?

I will now roll back to the couch and watch more RnK. And possibly hate Nino some more.

/hugs everyone

Friends cut, oh, thank you for reminding me, I wanted to do one on my own. Sometimes it just needs to be done, right? (In my case also because there seems to be someone talking shit about my friend on meme and I don't feel comfortable enough to post personal stuff anymore, not with all those people I have added over all the years)

I really hope you get better soon, being sick just sucks. But knowing Gati, she definitely looks after you in the best way possible, right? ♥

And Ryuusei, yes, all the eye-candy. I can never stop re-watching that Drama ♥ And Koichi is one of Nino's best roles so far.


Get well soon dear! /hugs tight

Ugh, that sounds absolutely horrible D: I'm so sorry to hear that, it's terrible when someone talks shit about friends, meme or not. Mostly, I don't post really personal stuff here, locked or not, so in that way I don't really care, but I'm not keeping people on my flist just for the sake of having the number be impressive (which it isn't xD) and some of these people have literally not said a word to me in a very long time, so. Cut?

My recovery has been rather quick both yesterday and today and my goal for tomorrow is managing my five hour shift. I can do it! And yes, she really does take care of me in all the best ways, she's the best

Normally I'm very wary of Nino's acting, simply because, to me, he plays all roles more or less the same, like Nino. /ducks for bricks. However, Koichi is fantastic and RnK is my favorite drama of his, only ahead of Freeter, which I also adore unhealthy amounts.

AHAHAHAHAHA I will try, I make no promises, but they both really tickle me the right way, both really awkward people XD

Thank you ♥ /clings

I am loving Last Hope (in spite of watching raws) like there's no tomorrow.

I love both Breathless and Calling with the force of a thousand suns. Both for Ohno, the pretty and then both for very different reasons.

I love Beautiful days! Arafes is good for the body, soul and bonding with your children ... ^_^

I haven't seen RnK yet, you may shoot me now if you like.

I don't know her well enough but I DO know YOU and if you want me to lavish praise on someone ... I WILL! *Lavishes heaps of Praise* ^_^

PLease don't cut me because I love you, because you're a wonderful human being that deserves the most wonderful human, life has to offer.

Busy is as busy does but *MWAH!* Love you! If people are complaining about the music and/or the PV's they must be blind (because the choreography, scene setting, editing genius that went into those yielded spectacular results, ANDOMG THE PrETTY!!!) and deaf (because OHNO!!!, sexy vocals, ouf! n unF!) well there's no hope for some people.

We're good, *sending you good vibes, love and warmth inyour direction for a speedy recovery*

More love!

I'm loving Last Hope a lot even though episode three made me giggle inappropriately, because Tabe Mikako, but other than that, I am dying of the suspense surrounding Aiba's character.

I'm not shooting you for not watching RnK, I will however, as soon as I have the energy and the time, burn the episodes out on a dvd for you so you can watch them on your television in the company of your wonderful family <3 If you don't already have the episodes, that is!

Also, I'm never cutting you, you are stuck with me! ♥ You're always so crazy busy, but I'm thinking of you lots and sending you all my positive thoughts on daily basis and I hope you never step on a puddle that was deeper than you thought, because that sucks.

I don't announce my friends' cut when I do it. It's been busy for me lately and I've been writing here and there, but I'm also tired very easily these days.

I announced it after, but technicalities. Also my brain is truly a bitch so I genuinely forget which people I've been keeping in touch with, so if I accidentally cut someone I shouldn't have, it'd be better if they knew about it this way.

Nino in RNK is the most gorgeous thing in existence. Or not, really, just... most of the time XD

Yes back from work and dinner!

Are you feeling alright now? D:

1. When I saw the initials K T, Kimura Takuya came to my mind. XD
2. Your friend is SO Nice. and asdfghjk LE A of Truth. I have it too and it was my first Arashi single. (take my life please yes take my life)
3. That episode of MS was a total gift to me. Perfume+SMAP+Arashi like HOMG? The amount of interactions between SMAP and Arashi... Oh so precious. T_T And Perfume performing Mirai no Museum - I heard it when they came over for concert last year. =D
4. Breathless/Calling: Breathless was an instant hit for me when I heard 27s of it in Nino's movie trailer. And the PV asdfghjk. I love how dark it looked, I love how Ohno looked in there (his hair was almost perfect for me) and I love the dance especially the opening like AHHHH. Calling took a while to to grow on me though but eventually it did and I declare all songs in the single good. Have you heard the couplings? full of love is AHHHHHH. Ohno's solo at the back AHHHHHH. (sorry too much caps?)
5. Speaking of Last Hope, I feel like flipping my table whenever each episode ends. it's getting more complicated but I have to admit, this is Aiba's best drama to date. A better script really matters.
6. I never finished RnK. I only watched the first half and the last episode. My fav scene has to be in the last episode where Nino had all those tears in his eyes as he pointed the gun at the detective. My heart. Fav Nino crying scene after Gantz.

Shall continue drinking my bubble tea. =D

I hope work and dinner were good affairs for you!

1. AHAHAHA I guess I didn't think about it like that since I spend as little time as possible thinking about him, he's my least fav in SMAP xD
2. UGH YES I KNOW AND I'M NOT SHARING HER. I'm selfishly hogging her for myself because I'm hoping her awesome will eventually rub off on me. But yes, that single is gorgeous, the artwork is seriously something else.
3. MS was so full of goodness, there were so many amazing artists in the line up, but Arashi and Perfume really topped the charts for me, the girls looked so good and healthy and happy, and just, Arashi continues to slay with their flawless, ugh I hate them. Also, so envious of you you got to see Perfume, it's such a wish for me. Are their legs as fantastic in reality as they appear?
4. Aaaah so when you say Ohno's hair was almost perfect, how is the perfect look? I have many looks I love on him, but the shaved sides he sported during Arafes reaaaaaally did things to me. But I agree, Breathless was initially the song I preferred, I don't know now even though I think I'm leaning to Calling. But yes, the coupling songs are so awesome, I love Full Of Love so much, it's amazing <3 I think it's really amazing when they manage to make such an all round great single release, because to me, a lot of the coupling songs are pretty so-so. So I'm verrrry happy with this single 8D
5. A better script and better acting - and both of them are doomed if the director is bad, however, I attribute a whole ton to both Aiba's much improved acting and also his co-stars, which are all very good actors. Watching My Girl is still extremely painful for me even though Yuka and Hina are in it, but Aiba's acting is very bad in it, for me at least. I'm so proud of how much he's improved with his roles.
6. OOOH WHY NOT? It didn't catch you? One of my friends wanted to watch it, and he was like "uh, boring."

Work was ahhh, work. = =

1. He's my favourite in SMAP actually but ever since Arashi came into the picture in 2009, you can say that my priorities have changed? Still a fan of SMAP but just not that into them that much if you get my meaning.
2. =D I wish I had such a great friend like her too!
3. Speaking of their legs, Kashiyuka's legs were the prettiest among the trio. Doesn't help that Kashiyuka kept coming to my side of the stage more often than the other two. Nocchi's my fav by the way and I rem telling my friend on how often Kashiyuka came over to our side and Nocchi was at the other side of the stage. They look so pretty in person! Acchan is totally what you see on TV shows!
4. My perfect look is Enomoto Enomoto Enomoto. The way he looked in the recent MS reminded me of his previous MS where they sang Face Down though (I love this too). Can I secretly tell you on how much I dislike him shaving his sides when he loves doing so? A lot of fans love it but not me oooooops.
5. Have to agree about My Girl. My DVD is pretty much kept in my drawer. When I first started watching Last Hope I thought that it'll just be an average medical drama (I've watched good ones like Team Medical Dragon and Emergency 24 hours and so I'm pretty picky when it comes to medical dramas) but ep 1 changed my mind. I just watched ep 8 of Last Hope last night and.... /flips table
6. I watched RnK because of Kaname Jun and it doesn't help that I didn't like Nino then and Toda's role was kind of irritating for me at the point of time. Oops.

Waiting for my lunch to come! =D

Hi 8D

YOU'RE FEELING BETTER :D So happy, seriously <3

(Stop the pimping of my pseudo-skills, although I must admit your entry looks pretty damn awesome with that gorgeous Ohno jaw. Thank you ♥ )

I am extremely amused at the fact that you have *4* people with the same name, and if that name is Kevin, I'll be laughing forever. If it's something more Danishy, like Karl, then I'll just be nodding in a "oh I see" manner. All in all, why is the weird one weird? It got me really curious, sorry.

I would hand you something to do during your idle-ness, but I would be too afraid you'd try and hit me with it. I don't know why I have that image of you throwing things while ill & idle, it's totally untrue, I'm sure. In any case, I'll continue to be your illness-kicking sidekick (all the kicks!) as long as you'll need it :3

(Please don't eat a whole beef, though, there might be some horse in one of the stomachs, you never know.)

Aslkdlskfsd YOU KNOW IT IS ALL MY PLEASURE AND I AM NOT FLAWLESS STOP IT, YOU ARE AND YOU DESERVE ALL THE TEA. Also I'm really happy I got you that single, for some reason I strongly associate the entire thing with you, so it was only fair I forced it on you XD and that baking book, fjiezfez I am *telling* you, it was made for you. There is no other way. Uuuuugh, you're the one who makes me happy, don't die on me. Ugh ugh ugh ♥ ♥ ♥

BREATHLESS fezjfpez CALLING afezpofkez those damn sales 8D SO PROUD OF THOSE BOYS, SELLING LIKE BAGUETTES (it's a legit French expression, don't hit me). Perfume were adorable, and I love Mirai no Museum so much ;^; I really liked Chocolato Disco, for some reason I was incredibly proud that the public requested/ranked it, and the girls seemed *so* happy during the whole show. Even when Aiba and Jun kept trolling their MiniStation appearances :'D oejmez the CUTE.

I have no idea how to choose between those two songs so I'm not going to :'D I'll say that the PV for Breathless catches more my eye than Calling (where most of the time they seem annoyed at the ripped fabric XD Or maybe I'm the one annoyed at it, who knows. But then Calling is such a good soooong and Aiba's "this is the last hope" just gets to me. As for Nino's Breathless solo, I don't mind it, really, but I don't love it either, which means I just *know* I'm going to get a bit tired of it at some point, but Ohno's clear, clear, clear voice in both songs just kills it and I love them both ♥ (but seriously, both chorus, ugh, CHILLS.)


Okay, your linking to Tamagotchi is just a shameless, SHAMELESS excuse for you to share some more europop AHAHAHAHAHA /so amused at that song, forever.
Also, fuck that video is *bad* XDDDD

Jrock is awesome. Fandom never learns, because fandom does not have the skills to both worship something to extreme amounts of fangirling and then reason in a rational, calm, and composed manner. XD but yes, I feel the rage, and share it.

RnK is *flawless* fezkfpoezk I will never get over how much I loved that drama when it first aired and how much I love it, still. Nino was so, so good in it, which reminds me, I need to watch Freeter :'D /I HATE EVERYTHING AND I NEED MORE TIME

To all of your thoughts, I say "YES YES YES HELL YEAH" and aflmezfz your flawless taste, I see it.

(As for Toda Erika, it would seem she counters her stress brought by work with a lot of exercising and martial arts, which probably resulted in her weight loss when her activities increased, I don't think it was necessarily about losing weight, which is a good thing, in a way!)

If you write Enomoto/Koichi, I'll try and write my fics *twice* as a fast. And also I'll give you lots and lots of hugs, cookies, presents, more hugs, and I'll stalk you online to ask you what you're writing about. :3

I think that comment might be longer than your entry. Also I am apparently gorgeous, and I'm doing alright, how 'bout you? (why do I even ask, I'll text you 5 times later on today to just ask XDD sorry in advance. I love you, truly I do, I just choose to express that love by being insufferably talkative and nagging.)


Love you ♥ take care and get better and kick ass at work :3

p-s: OHNO AND FRIENDS FOR DREAM~ COMING SOON TO GIGANTIC CONCERT STADIUMS NEAR YOU. Sharp dancing not necessarily guaranteed, what with Ohno being the lazy fucker that he is ♥

pp-s: *YOU* are the best soulmate.

ppp-s: when does a post-scriptum stop, really, it's not like I can't just insert all of those back into the comment before hitting send. It's all very paradoxical.

pppp-s: It turns out I can't insert it back because my comment is too freaking LONG. Wth.

Instead of history lectures this week, we watched Letters from Iwo Jima and I was sat at the back of the lecture theatre fangirling out of my mind. It was so so great. Also, Nino is so smug no matter who he plays. It's just. Hm.
