borealgrove: Shou and Saga wearing the same obi... for whatever reason. (Coordination)
Okay, look. I'm going to sit my butt down and do some writing tonight before I go to sleep. But before I do... before I do, jfc, I need to scream about the series of tweets that Saga just made, because that asshole gave me the pick-me-up that I had desperately been needing after a long week.

So, first of all, the new single has been announced for September 20th - PENDULUM - and according to him, it's going to be a heavy track. Sign me the fuck up. Also, sign me the fuck up for Re:born, because it's still on backorder. At this point, I'll be receiving both those singles at the same time. I mean, it's not a bad thing, but I really would prefer to spread the joy out a little more.

Second of all... I'm sorry. I'm still reeling. I'm so excited, I don't know how to put it into words.

They've decided to release another photobook, like their Piece of 5ive Elements from forever ago. But the teaser photos for the upcoming book, 5 ELEMENTS PIECES, caused me to do a double-take in a crowded restaurant, and then promptly turn off my screen and take a breather.

They retweeted a Barks [ article with plenty of information, and a Decolum [ article ] with high-res photos (THANK YOU GOD).

So... this collection is going to be released in five books, apparently. I'm assuming each will focus heavily on just one member, and have some group shots along with (hopefully) some interviews. But I'm dying because the teaser photo for Saga's shoot looks like softcore porn.

He is a babe. That bare-chested photo of him is just sublime. He's got just enough roundness that I kind of think, if someone didn't immediately know he was a man, they might mistake him for a woman. I am 100% here for that.

He also tweeted this shit right here:



To the best of my knowledge, what is says is: Feel free to use this when you're making out with your boyfriend.

I don't know if he means use the image as an internal fantasy, or use it as a how-to for looking like the sexiest thing ever, but...

SAGA GET THE FUCK OUT.

When can I preorder this shit? This is what money was made for. Also, Shou retweeted every single tweet Saga made about this, without comment. Not one dirty joke. Nothing. Notable, because it's unusual. The last sexy photos totally got comments from him. Even Hiroto made a sly jab about Saga's "breasts". Could it be that Shou is just... admiring the view? I'm going to look forward to him breaking his silence about this lol. Also, for some reason, I am suddenly reminded of the time he accidentally retweeted a Drarry manip meant for his secret, personal account, on his public band account. Like. Shou? Why? :D

Also, like, let's not forget that the last "wet tshirt" Saga photoshoot in Piece of 5ive was Shou's "artistic vision". Yeah.

Shou, you can get the fuck out too lol.
borealgrove: (Meltwater)
This has certainly been an interesting week so far. I managed some work on FS at the beginning, plotted out the next few chapters, but after finishing a scene that was exhausting to write, I needed a break. So I started to write my HP Drizzle fest submission! SSHG Smut fest is coming up (in fact I am eagerly awaiting the claiming post to go up this morning so I can make mine), and the submission will be due around the same time, so I decided to act out of character and do some work in advance :p

My Merthur fic is still percolating in the back of my mind, and I add to my notes every now and then, go back and re-read them, but I think the only way I'm going to be able to write it properly is if I spend some time outside on a hill when it's extremely sunny and bright out. I've still got a winter sense-memory, and I can't fully get into the zone with this thing right now.

This morning started with a jolt: the fire alarm went off. Or rather, it seems it was pulled, so... Happy Father's Day lol. Then, the alarm itself malfunctioned, so it kept turning on and off, and they couldn't restore the elevators, so after being patient, we were left with no choice other than to walk all the way up to our unit (we're on one of the highest floors lol) so that was a fun pre-breakfast workout. My side of the family are planning to come here for a Father's Day supper, but if they don't fix the elevators, there's no way we're making them walk all the way up and down the stairs; we'll have to figure something else out.

This is random, but yesterday I successfully went from a 10g to an 8g in my left earlobe. My left earlobe has been extremely finicky and I've had to go back down a size twice now because it would not settle properly (rather, because it needed way more than a couple months to rest between stretches). So I finally managed the next stretch with ease! My right lobe for some reason has been a lot easier to stretch and I've had very little trouble with it, so it's several sizes ahead lol.

I've got to run off and make myself breakfast so I'll just make mention of one last, very important thing:

The definitive post-S4 TJLC meta is out!

toxicsemicolon has done it with her [ Poetry or Truth? ] meta, which she published on Medium (part II to come). It's definitive, because she started from the two clearest hints we got about the season via twitter, and did a shitload of research and connecting of dots (I've been watching her scream about Brecht and theatre of the absurd for several months on her Tumblr lol). This meta... is fucking amazing. I ascribe to other metas/theories that aim to explain something about the plot, but this is the first one that I feel truly explains what Season 4 is, if that makes sense. EMP theory, for instance, gives us a good explanation for what is going on with the plot as early as HLV, and into TAB and beyond, and I think it's a strong contender for the big reveal (Tarmac Hell!), but it doesn't fully explain the narrative choices they made the way Poetry or Truth? does. So far, I don't think they have to be mutually exclusive; they can complement one another. I also really like Opaljade's

Ah, I'm back. The fire alarm went off again. Because it's malfunctioning. So we went down a fafillion flights of stairs again, the alarm turned off after about fifteen minutes, and we each heaved a sigh. The elevators were still out of service, so we decided, being quite hungry and fed up, that we would go get brunch. As soon as we started walking away, the alarm went off again; clearly we made the right decision. So we took a nice walk, had a nice brunch (right before the morning rush, so we didn't need to wait to get a table -- score!), and then came back to find... the elevators were still out of service. We met an unfortunate relative at the entrance and had the sad task of informing her that to get up to where her mother lived on the 10th floor, she would have to walk. Horror! We walked together and offered encouragement, and at the tenth floor we bid her farewell and continued on.

We made it back home and immediately laid out clothes on the bed for if the alarm inevitably goes off again and we need to get dressed to go out properly in a hurry. By the way... it's supposed to go up to 40C today, so... jfc. LOL

So, um... where was I?

Right. Opaljade's meta. Trance Theory (part I & part II). This one also does a pretty good job at de-fucking S4, and can coexist to a certain degree with EMP.

I still love BBC Sherlock, and no one yet has managed to convince me that TJLC is not real.
