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.

Happy Birthday, Ohno Satoshi, you utterly brilliant man, I'm still hopelessly smitten and hopelessly fascinated by you, and god, you're really unfairly attractive. For this year, I wish that you stay healthy and happy and awesome and will wear lots of tight t-shirts so I can ogle your appallingly attractive figure. (ETA: On that note let me tell you that the Ohno Satoshi tag on tumblr is a very good place to be today. You know, just saying.)

I was going to write a fic to have something to actually contribute to fandom with on this lovely day, but I got sidetracked with writing something else, oops?

But most importantly, THANK YOU a million gazillion times for the birthday wishes! LJ is an assbutt that told everyone that my birthday was two days early, on the 22nd instead of the 24th, so I got lots of wishes from then on, and thank you thank you thank you, everyone, I feel really loved and all warm and fuzzy with feels, my friends are the best

Also, another fabulous album out this year, Olly Murs' new album Right Place Right Time is gorgeous and fun and so so so good, and it just got in on my doorstep, so, yay! So much good music out this year, it's been a fantastic year for music!

(Getting back to the people I owe replies to later today, seriously, I fail I'M SORRY, I'm writing assignment ;;__;; /HUGS EVERYONE)

I suppose it says a lot about my enthusiasm for something when the working title for the document is: "I'd really rather watch paint drying on the wall dammit"
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Lana Del Rey - b/w)
I'm ill. I'm also writing like mad, I can't believe chapter two ended up just shy of 7,000 words, my god. Cliché fic indeed, why do I always end up writing so much when it's the clichés, remember It's Tonight Your City Sleeps? Memory loss trope right there. Now I'm tackling another cliché and it's the same thing all over again. Curious yet? So am I. Ohno, stop being so damn write-able.

Hi, I'm Rikke, I'm addicted to writing. /bows.

In other completely not news, I will probably keep spamming you with this song until I hear complains (and I will probably continue even then), because holy crap. She actually really does sing this as if she's dying.

...Mary prays the rosary for my broken mind.

I have successfully survived a marathon of writing three assignments, going to work and actually managing to have a life. I can't even. Met up with a friend on Tuesday because I seriously needed to do something else than staring at my computer. Was much needed, and she decided the pink tips Gati's mom did on my hair needed to be strengthened, so I now have very pink tips again. I've been running on too little sleep and too much caffeine for almost a week now, so after work yesterday, I crashed rather spectacularly.

I wake up to a text from Gati that Arafes is up for preorder, why does this always happen when I happen to be asleep? I did get First Press from Cdjapan, though, so I'm totally okay with that <3 Also sfzlugfdjhfjdfdjk GAMMICK GAME LIVE. I am so on board with that, finally we got you, Neen. And Rain just with Ohno and no back up dancers? This is going according to my plan. Popcorn goods look good, but none of them really screams at me. Might get a clearfile if I can be bothered. We'll see!

A huge thank you to [livejournal.com profile] i_am_zan for the pretty card and the lovely, lovely words, it made me seriously, really happy, so thank you so much <3 I love snail mail, okay? <3
[livejournal.com profile] walking_orgy: I am working on it, uploading as we speak! I have not dropped any colorful commentary as probably you'd better listen and get your own impressions, yeah, no matter how much I'd like to shove my (clearly) unbiased opinions on you xD I also suck, I saw your comments last night after work, but yeah, collapsed, so. It was even a chance of catching you somewhat real time, but damn. Next time? <3

You all need to buy Lana Del Rey's new Paradise Edition because reasons. No, seriously, it's brilliant, I've been listening non-stop since it got out on Monday, IT'S SO GOOD. Body Electric is perfection, she sings it like she's aching, Bel Air and American are phenomenal, my god. Listen, it's fantastic. It's also really motivational, apparently, since I managed to finish my assignments almost three days before deadline, so. I thought Born To Die was the best album release for me this year, but apparently, Lana can only best herself, so the Paradise Edition easily shoves Born To Die down. If I hadn't already songficced the crap out of Born To Die, I'd do it again despite my raging hate for songfics. I can't words.

Anyway! Besides ordering Arafes, I have actually nothing to do today besides the cinema later with my trainer. We're going to watch... Breaking Dawn pt. 2. I know, I know. Seeing as I have only watched the first movie and read half of the first book, this shall probably be amusing. I have little to no idea what's happening in between, but internet assures me I'm better off without knowing. Anyway, she asked if I wanted to go with her, and it's been a long time since we've spent some quality time together, so it'll be good, even if I'm watching Twilight. /shrugs. I survived reading Fifty Shades, I can survive this.

I suppose I should now read my email, I haven't checked it since the weekend, so. I hope nothing truly groundbreaking was happening while I was assignment writing like a pro.

I also hope I can get some writing done now. My fingers are itching to write.

Please update me on your lives, lovely flist <3

Being buried beneath a heap of blankets and racing to finish three assignments with deadline on Saturday, I will probably not be here much this coming week, but I shall try!

Happy one-day-early birthday to [livejournal.com profile] tonieboo0013, happy birthday, love, hope you'll be having a good one <3

Also, thank you to BFF for verbally kicking my ass into gear last night, it was much appreciated, my whining was ridiculous.

Anyway, I'm trying to get some writing done, I will try and cram it in in between assignments and actual human functions, but we all know how that tends to work out for me. Part 10 of Muses is just about done, I've started on part 11, I'm also working on my cliché fic, which has kind of taken over my life for a bit, which I normally wouldn't mind but for the fact that I'm trying to write a paper on dialects and linguistic evolution in Catullus' Carmina. So unless it writes itself, there will be little to no writing for me this week, I think :(

I'm wildly amused (and also slightly horrified) to discover that The Shameless Fic was nominated last year to some award or another. What. How. Why. HOW. WHY. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? Does this fandom genuinely not know when it's being mocked? This fic, of them all, was the one I was not keen on advertising anywhere, I wasn't even going to post it originally. So amused, what is this fic even? Various mean, mean people are telling me to write the sequel, what the hell, wasn't there enough mockery the first time around? I'm not completely heartless, you know, just really not in possession of a working brain to mouth filter.

Am I caught up on things now? Hopefully yes, but you lot are seriously difficult to keep up with, you're all busy and lovely (and productive!) so. Please just poke me if there's urgent stuff I need to know, you guys are really sweet at pm-ing me and reminding me of stuff, so just, I'm glad you do, so keep it up? Please?

Okay, my break from assignments has gone on long enough! Toodles! <3

Please do not rob yourselves of the experience of this Patrick Wolf interview plus live performances of Overture and Born To Die.

So I was going to post Muses 9 tonight, but I got distracted by TH. Oops. Tomorrow. Maybe.

Have a pretty Bill instead?

Meanwhile, I'll keep working on my cliché fic.

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for all your replies to my last post, it was very informative and enlightening, and I will probably randomly PM some of you to start some discussions, would that be okay? I really hope so, you all had incredibly interesting things to say, and the reason I haven't replied to your comments is that I'm still digesting your answers, so. Thank you so much for taking my question seriously! /hugs everyone.

Now, the summer is about to be over, isn't it? It's really been quite hectic, hectic in both good and bad ways, but fortunately most good. I've been baking(!) a lot, I haven't got much writing done, I've been working a lot, and basically, life has been eating me. The weather has been encouraging my outdoors lifestyle, so I've been out on a lot of walks and riding and just. Being outside. I've also managed to acquire a tan(!!), isn't that several kinds of amazing? /laughs

I've been on a spontaneous one day road trip to Lübeck with some really good friends, and I'm going there again next weekend with my mother, so there's definitely that to be looking forward to.

Also, super amazing Halloween trip to Brussels have now been planned - six days with the lovely Gati. We're going to a Patrick Wolf concert (oh my goodness, excitement!!!) and we're going to do so much general fangirling you'll probably be able to hear us a few countries blocks over.

Will also be posting next part of Muses in a bit.

Take care of yourselves and enjoy the rest of the summer :)

Calling ALL writers and readers - no matter if you've written 10 words or three million, no matter if you write fic or original pieces - please read this!

I've been wanting to ask this for years. )
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Arashi - Ohno Taka)
slkjdcsjdfs it just needs to be said that I'm so extremely happy for the overwhelmingly positive response to Muses, you guys are the best ♥ I'm behind on answering comments but rest assured, I will get to them during the next couple of days!

It's been a while since I've listened so much to Arashi as I have for the past few days (when I finally manage to distract myself from the perfection that is Trespassing, that is), and it just further managed to cement a very simple fact of life.

Ohno's dramas = kickass songs.

Truth, Kumorinochi, Tokei Jikake no Umbrella, Face Down >>>>>>> all your favourites' drama theme songs.

He always gets the different ones, doesn't he, the ones that really get the fans going. With that being said, I'm still pissed that Tokei Jikake wasn't released as anything else than a B-side, it could've been glorious.

And no, I don't really have anything else/new/interesting to report.

/scrambles back to writing

Also, you better listen to Trespassing, you hear me?
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Cookie monster)
I really must congratulate my flist on posting the exact right amount of Ohno's Face Down shop pictures and of Klaine during prom. Well executed flist, you're more flawless than my dash!

Also, I should be at work right now, but I had a last minute assignment to do to make up for the fact I missed some classes recently, and classes end this week before study break next week, so. THE PRESSURE.

In bullet points! )
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Arashi - Ohno Taka)
I'm writing part four of Muses and,uh, let's just say pretty boys got handsy. Also, Ohno is a fairy.

I am amused.

Deal with it.
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Eddie Izzard's Creation of the World)
Proper update from yesterday's and today's Unflattering Arashi April later, but I was busy with, uh, forgetting.

And more more more. Updates as per usual on real life, writing and fandoms. )
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Default)
Rikke speaks! Again! And rambles! Again!

(Also, heads up: trying to substitute half my coffee intake with hot chocolate and tea, so chances of incoherence are vastly higher than normal. Ye be warned.)
You'd think that people would've had enough of silly love songs. )
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Arashi - Ohno Taka)
Need fic help.

If the guys weren't idols, what would Nino, Jun, Aiba and Sho be doing as professions? I already have Ohno planned out, so.

rikke_leonhart: Owl (Default)
djbjahgdjhsj BFF has started addressing my tattoo as he, his and him and idek, she's just so weird.

Oh lordy, this post is going to be all over the place, all my apologies in advance. )
