Sticky: Semi Friends Only

Welcome to Rikke's journal!
28 years-old, rant and ramble a lot, write a lot and flail a lot. And fail.
And I'm pretty much the crappiest online friend in existence.

If you're here for the fics - read them without adding me HERE.

...say Hi before friending?

ETA: Hey new friends 8D Feel free to add me on lj as well!

Fic: Paradigm 3/9

Rating: PG-13

Word count: ~1,000/~12,000
Warnings: Language
Summary: There are things Nino has spent a long time trying not to remember. Too bad Ohno didn't get the memo.
Author's Notes: Ugh, I'm having intense Fanmeet feels, post-Fanmeet blues and I'm honestly still reeling from all the fangirling and flailing and oh the hugs ;;__;; Arashi fandom is amazing, y'all! The usual: the lovely Gati and the magnificent [livejournal.com profile] walking_orgy are absolute stars <3

Ohno is late for dance rehearsal. Which isn’t out of the ordinary, really, they’re all permanently running a bit late, they should probably start scheduling after how much they’re always delayed. )

Author's Notes: I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry, I have like ten minute break so sorry if the formatting is *shit*, but anyway, I was in the middle of posting this from home and then work was happening and oh my god, I hate lj formatting so *much*. This fic has existed in some form or another since 2008, and I've finally gotten to the point where I actually want to post it. /Captain slow. Thank you to the lovely Gati for reading through it ♥ And seriously, all the gratitude in the world to [livejournal.com profile] walking_orgy for making it look pretty and for cheering me on and for not minding my constant email spamming and for my wall of texts and for calling my email "language porn". Totally made my day xD Cheerleaders for her *\o/**\o/**\o/* Don't know when the next update will be since I'm at the European Arashi Fanmeet during the weekend WOOOO So unless I can steal someone's computer, it'll be on Sunday instead of Friday! If you're going as well, come and say hi? :D Oh god the rambling. Here's fic?

Nino thinks it might have started much earlier, but he doesn’t remember it, not really.  )

It's Wednesday and concert time! (Or "surely you will walk on looking forward as a Dream Fighter")

Hello everyone! Are you all enjoying the summer? I am :D I've been traveling a little bit and the days since I got back have been jam-packed and will continue to be, so. I'll try being all present and stuff? At least to post fic soon-ish xD

So yes, traveling! I've been to Brussels to visit Gati (:DDDD) and we went to Paris to attend the Japan Expo and also to see Perfume. Yes. Yes. YESSSSS. I'm still incredibly giddy about that and I keep telling everyone about it, I don't even care that next to no one up here knows them, I just need to share my giddiness xD

Perfume con report and mandatory flailing for those that care. It's here for those who don't care as well. )

Fic: Lovely, Wonderful Thoughts

Title: Lovely, Wonderful Thoughts
Pairing(s): Eh. Gen. Maybe Ohno/Nino if those goggle are on.
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Nuh-uh!
Word count: ~1,600-ish
Warnings: Crack and no plot
Summary: Ohno is Peter Pan, Nino is Tinkerbell and Aiba is giggling. What it says on the tin!
Author's Notes: I blame [livejournal.com profile] walking_orgy for this. You should, too. NIKA IT'S YOUR FAULT SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO. She said "Tinkerneen" and I said "okay". I'm glad you keep being amused by it, though xD Artistic license has been taken, rudely so. Bastardizing Peter Pan, I'm so ashamed. It's silly. Really silly and stupid. Did I mention there's no plot? There isn't. It's also short for once, even though it was intended to be 200 words. I fail.

Pausing just before knocking, Sho and Jun exchange a glance.  )

Here's to the usual

Usual policy is firmly in place: If anyone spoils anything regarding the Popcorn DVD for me, I will cut a bitch and the bitch will be whoever did the spoiling. I am merciless. I hate how people waiting for the DVD has to practically abandon internet for actually following the rules for once.

It's Sunday again, (or "Tell me I'm your national anthem")

Hello hello, you lovely lot!

So, internet has been dodgy for quite some time, life is crazy busy as per usual, and it all adds up to me not really being up for anything and not being able to check internet other than on my phone. I will make a proper update soon, but allow me some flailing for the Lana Del Rey concert.

Song rec: "Stay" - Adam Lambert (Rihanna cover)

So I figure that most of you have now heard Rihanna's nasal voice crooning "Stay" (and Mikky Ekko is the very best thing about the original, I love him something fierce), but what you probably haven't heard is Adam Lambert's effortless, haunting voice making the song ten times more painful, it makes my heart ache in all the right ways, the ones that make you tear up and stomp a bit on your soul, give you a right kick in the feels. I mean, the lyrics aren't groundbreaking in any way, but in this rendition they just make me stop and think, and just shiver and cry. Adam's voice is gorgeous and it's truly astounding how easy it seems to come to him, he's always in such good voice, and he feels the song. Ugh, just give it a listen?

"Funny you're the broken one
But I'm the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the light
It's hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay, stay."

Thursday Admin ("or "NAMIDA HORORI")

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?

And now with the unpleasantness being over I'll go to the complete and utter randomness of my life since the last proper update in January where I also was down with the flu. I'm sensing a pattern here. )

Just a video post!

Because if proof is needed of the Power of Ohno, just listen to him make Jun sound good.

And the *cutest* concert perf ever, just listen to those gorgeous harmonies, ugh, Ohno, never stop your flawlessness.

So, because my soulmate is slaying all your favorites by her mere existence and she has more awesome in her pinky than the rest of the world put together, you should all go check out the best commercial holiday gift in the history of commercial holiday gifts (aka the day Valentine's Day got pwned by Ohmiya porn):

Junk in the trunk ("Long Johns") by the fantastically awesome, oh-so-lovely and no-I'm-not-sharing-her-sorry-not-sorry [livejournal.com profile] eufry.

(In other words, there will be proper post this weekend, I think. I have Things To Discuss.)

Fic: Muses - Ribbons and leaves and time in a tin

Title: Ribbons and leaves and time in a tin
Pairing(s): Ohno/Nino
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: Nuh-uh!
Word count: ~3,800
Warnings: Italics abuse, run on sentences,
Summary: AU. This time: There's insomnia and sexy times.
Author's Notes: Muses! Sorry this is late, it was finished ages ago, but then I was ill, and then I was lazy and then I was ill again, and now formatting is a bitch. But! Sexy times! Rated NC-17 to be safe. It's also lacking plot, but I promise the next one will have actual rarely-seen plot. I don't know when it'll be finished, I have too many plot bunnies running around making an absolute mess of my documents folder. Also, what does it say about me that it's a short fic when it's below 4,000 words? Title from Graham Coxon's song "Ribbons and leaves", which is entirely too depressing, really, but very pretty. Earlier pieces to be found here.

It was only a little after midnight and Nino couldn’t sleep. )

You are my SOUL SOUL

This is how I screencap:

Have music or concert in one player. Have the video I screencap on mute in vlc.

And this happens. I can't even. Transformation then and now.

It's astounding how every time I declare that I'm alive and kicking I disappear. Oops?

I've been down with the flu, though /hides behind excuse. No, really. It sucks, I'm terrible at being ill, I go stir crazy the moment the choice of being indoors or not is taken from me. I mean, laziness in general is kind of difficult for me to reconcile with my constant need to be doing something, whether it's writing or something else, but I'm getting better at it, I swear. I really just prefer having the choice, is that really too much to ask? I'm just about over it now, so, all good!

Work has been really hectic and weird and scary for the past two weeks, a lot of thefts have been happening, and let me just tell you that it's not fun in any interpretation of that word to be present while that is going on. So, iPads, phones, Apple TV, a lot of stuff have been stolen. Ugh.

So yeah. Other than working as many shifts as I've been offered this January, I've passed my exams and I've been going with my trainer a lot to help her out with the horses, which is amazing and exhausting and. I really like it, the feeling of being physically exhausted, plus I get to spend time with her, which is always all kinds of hilarious and amazing. It also seems that all my friends decide to have various degrees of meltdowns in January, which is fine with me since I have better time now than when classes start up again in February, but oh my god, so much drama.

I've also gotten the go ahead to start running again YES YES YES /cheer

Fandom wise. Well, not much is happening lately, is there? I mean, Arafes is still amazing, but otherwise? The European Fanmeet in August, though = EXCITE. It's going to be amazing, I have very high expectations for the truly tremendous amount of fangirling that will happen during those days. Nothing else, I'm afraid. J-Popcon in March, I'm working on my costumes, it will be glorious, I'm not kidding. I watched the Kurt edit of last night's Glee and I ship Kurt/Adam like mad, seriously, Adam made him giggle and feel good about himself = instant win in my book. Sadly it won't be happening for more than a few episodes, Damn you, Glee. Why can't I seem to quit you? Kurt, that's why.

But Arashi, yes, I am having an insane amount of Arashi feels lately, I blame Arafes. Intense Arashi feels, intense Ohno feels and these days, very intense Nino feels. Need to rewatch this concert forever and ever. Amen. It has made me finish Muses piece 11 (YAAAY) and I am having a lot of plots floating around in my head to boot. Woe be to everyone but especially the boys. I'm not even sorry, I just have a lot of words and a lot of feels, which in this case is an explosive combination mwahahaha.

Which more or less segues into my really huge project of posting all my work on AO3, and I am already weeping like crazy at the amounf of work - which, a lot of it is because I'm a fucker who doesn't like to make things easy for myself: A lot of the corrections that I find in the fics after they've been posted, I only edit in the posts themselves, which means that the documents themselves have the incomplete versions. Sigh. I will figure it out.

Lastly! Do I know any really awesome artists here that have a way with calligraphy and kanji?

I am going to put up a post one of these days about writing, some specific things in writing that I hope people will want to put their two cents in to, it would be really really awesome.

I miss talking to you all, I will do my best! I am leaving off this time with zomg awesome videos.

Toodles <3<3<3

Because this choreography is insanely clever and needs to be praised forever:

And this is all kinds of awesome because Face Down. FACE DOWN.

Will be getting back to *everyone* on Tuesday after my final exam! /CLINGS TO EVERYONE

Today Gati and I watched Arafes and along with *insane* amounts of swearing, the experience of three hours of intense fangirling can be summed up into:

- *OHNO*

Aka the time we started singing "Never mind we'll never find someone like you" and decided that if you're not a blubbering mess, red faced and eyes red from crying? Watching concerts: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG. It's science understanding our complicated emotional state when we love them so much we hate them.

In other words, Arafes is the best concert they've ever done and it was worth the wait and slkdsfhskf Gati ♥ (I will need to dedicate an entire post to just how insanely clever Ohno's Tokei Jikake no Umbrella choreography was, holy fuck.) Also, Jun is Arashi's biggest fan, and nothing you can say or do can convince me otherwise.
/tinhatting OT5 forever.

I will screencap the fuck out of this concert.

Everything is Arashi and NOTHING HURTS AND I LOVE EVERYONE ♥♥♥♥♥

(Will try to be more coherent when screencaps come up xD)

Tuesday Grey Admin (or "walk tall beneath these trees, boy.")

Hello hello, you lovely lot, oh my goodness, life happens!

Happy belated New Year, everyone, I hope you all got through with all fingers and other body parts intact!

I've gotten some really lovely messages the past few days(♥), and yes, I'm alive, just cramming for exams, passing exams, working like crazy and trying my very best to have some semblance of life besides all that. Work this weekend was hectic, chaotic and intense - January sales have truly started. Why never in the stores I want to pillage? But I digress, I meant to thank everyone for lovely messages and comments and I will get to them, I'm sorry for the snail's pace I'm working at at the moment! I know I owe a ton of messages, I'm sorry!

I've gotten my filthy paws on a new netbook as well, so I probably won't get any writing done until that one has been set up completely. I seriously can't wait to use a computer that doesn't need to be charged all the time!

I also got my Arafes DVD, which I will watch and flail over the minute Gati gets hers!

As I mentioned three sentences in, January sales have started, and customers this weekend were a bit crazy with it, which ensured that I had my share of crazies. I especially enjoyed a conversation with a woman, who wanted to buy a 16GB USB stick:

Customer: That's... it? It's rather small, isn't it?
Rikke: Yes, it is, but I assure you, all 16GB are there.
Customer: Are you sure?
Rikke: Quite.
Customer: But how?
Rikke: ...because that's a 16GB stick? It says so on the box, I'm sorry, I can't unpack it for you unless you're sure to buy it.
Customer: Why not?
Rikke: If I break the seal, I can't sell it.
Customer: So you're sure all 16GB are there?
Rikke: You're free to count them when you get home.
Customer: Really?
Rikke: (/mentally facepalming at this point) If you buy it and you're dissatisfied with the product, you can come back and claim it defective.
Customer: Oh, nice. But how do I open it?
Rikke: (/trying to strangle snickering co-worker and trying not to sound exasperated) Right at the middle. Where it says "pull".
Customer: Oh I see. It's rather small, isn't it?
Rikke: ....
Customer: Okay, yes, thank you!
Rikke: You can just bring it to the check out line.
Coworkers: /exploding

And the guy with the Nokia.

Customer: Do you guys have the Nokia Pio Mio?
Rikke: /blinks ...I'm sorry, come again?
Customer: The Nokia Pio Mio?
Rikke: I haven't heard about it, we don't have it here. I'm sorry, I'll check it online for you?
Customer: /waits
Coworker: What's up?
Rikke: Have you heard of a Nokia Pio Mio?
Coworker: /blinks
Coworker: A what? /starts giggling
Rikke: Pio Mio. /tries not to giggle
Customer: It's really new! I though the Pio Mio name was really cute!
Coworker and Rikke exchange glances
Rikke: /tries really hard not to laugh
Rikke: /gets idea
Rikke to coworker: Maybe he means the PureView one? The 808?
Coworker: Possibly. /snickering into sleeve
Rikke: Do you mean this one, sir? /turns screen
Customer: Yes, that's exactly it!
Rikke: Well, we don't have the Pio Mio in our store or at the website either, I'm sorry.
Coworker: /has to leave because of imminent death by attempt to smother laughter
Customer: Oh okay, but thank you for the help! /leaves

We all just started laughing really hard when he left, I really didn't want to correct him, he was such a nice older man set in his ways xD

I hope you all are having a good January <3<3<3
