murakami captures life's struggle too well

just writing down my current mood:

“Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.

You really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.

And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.”

― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Arashi Pimp Post

Notes: This pimp post was originally posted in [livejournal.com profile] aroma_teaparty. Because the community had been deleted, I decided to repost this to my own journal. I am still mourning over the loss of four pages of comments there... I know most of the links I posted here are broken but Arashi's streaming videos have been taken down really fast lately and I couldn't find the substitutes. Feel free to tell me if you have other links/sources to the videos. Now, I'm also a contributor at Arashidex (links below), where you can find more links and informations. Please credit me, [livejournal.com profile] jadeswallow and give a link back to this entry if you want to copy anything from this pimp post. Thanks!

If you’re in Asian fandom, you must have heard of Arashi, but who are they? Do you want to know more about them? Are you a newcomer in this fandom and confused about where you should start? Fear not because this pimp post will introduce you further of an idol group which is so popular in Japan that their popularity is labeled as a social phenomenon.


Click to know more about them. You know you want to! )

These will always be my favorite

Ongoing Arashi fic recs. The list is not finished yet.

I've been keeping this for months and I'm going to keep adding fics into this list later. You may want to bookmark this entry in case you need it. Is there any brilliant fic out there that is not in my list yet? I might have missed a few, considering the amount of fics ever published in this fandom, so please comment with your recommended fics, I welcome any suggestion!

Notes, summaries, and warnings were copied from the author themselves. I restrained listing too many fics from the same author or I'll end up recommending all of their works. If you see the same author's name over and over again, then they're my favorites and I urge you to check out their fic comms for more brilliantly-written stories~

because it is too much to be put in one entry

And the non-Arashi ones. Also ongoing. As you can tell, I haven't read much non-Arashi fics yet.

*insert usual excuses here*

I'm sorry if this is the first entry you see after new year, but....


If you can read THIS, that means you have survived the cut.

That being said, Happy New Year and good luck for 2012!

Fic: Why Ohno Satoshi Needs His Band Mates

Title: Why Ohno Satoshi Needs His Band Mates
Fandom: Arashi
Characters/Pairings: General Arashi friendship, implied Ohno/Kuroki Meisa.
Rating: G
Word count: 2,317
Genre: Het, Fluff
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] zheinpathos  (Thank you so much! ♥ )
Ohno is so ignorant about his situation sometimes, and his band mates need to show certain things to him. Oh, and there were pineapples included.
Notes: The story took part after Music Lover, and inspired by something which happened in Movin’ On performance.

If there is something certain in Arashi, it’s that Ohno Satoshi has never changed. )

Fic: Words Left Unsaid

Title: Words Left Unsaid
Fandom: Arashi
Characters/Pairings: Nino/Nagasawa Masami
Rating: G
Word count: 1,662
Genre: Het, Angst
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] zheinpathos 
They have broken up, but they need to see each other again, because there are some words still left unsaid, lost between fights.
Notes: The story taken place not long after the release of Boku no Miteiru Fuukei

She missed him, and he missed her; they still wanted to see each other; he had time after concert rehearsals, so why not? )

Fic: Everything Has Changed

Title: Everything Has Changed
Fandom: Arashi
Characters/Pairings: Nino/Mizukawa Asami, Nino/Nagasawa Masami, Jun/Inoue Mao, Jun/Shibasaki Kou, and a little bit of Nino/Nakai Risa, Aiba/Mizukawa Asami, Aiba/Becky, Sho, Oguri Shun
Rating: G
Word count: 4,188
Genre: Het, Romance, Fluff
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] aibajunior 
Summary: They met because of a drama five years ago. What have become of them now?
Notes: I took the rumors from Arama, and use my imagination to make up the stories about what’s happening behind the rumors. So, all the rumors truly exist. And in case you haven’t noticed, it has Masami in it, so haters to the left please.

Should he try again? Or should he give up? If only love could be cleaned as easy as this coffee stain. )
