Amuuu T__T;

I got the new issue of Potato yesterday! The Junior groupings are super random, and Marius and Sou are mixed in with them randomly too, not even with their groups for the Gamushara shows... but overall I'm probably happier than last month? The Balakeya guys have a super cute article together, so that's a plus.

But the biggest news (only to me lol) that I learned from Potato so far: Amu is going to study in America this summer??

Which is really cool and all... if it weren't for the fact that I was really really hoping to see him in concerts this summer T___T;; So I'm pretty bummed about that. The Sexy Zone concert in Saitama is only a few days after the school term ends, so idk if he might still be around for that... (;____;)

But I figured I might as well translate his part of the article ^^; He used a lot of fancy words I had to look up, so hopefully my translation is okay. The theme of the article was English, and Amu was in it along with Suzuki Shunei, Motodaka Katsuki, and Nagata Jiei.

I have a strong desire to master English. To do that, I change the audio to English when I watch movies on TV and listen to a lot of Western music to try to come in contact with as much English as possible in my regular life. Of course, in the international society we're moving towards, I think English conversation is indispensible, and in Johnny's activities, I think being able to speak English will definitely be a strong weapon, too. And in the future, my biggest aim is to become someone who can expand overseas and do activities globally! By the way, my favorite English phrase is "Walk of Fame." It's the name of the street in Hollywood with all the handprints of stars. I think it would be cool to become the kind of star who could have their handprint there~ (laugh) So, this summer vacation, I'm going to do a short-term exchange in America to study English. I'll definitely have grown up when I come back, so look forward to it and wait for me!

AmuAmu

I just learned that Amu's mother is a former gravure idol, and I don't know what to do with this knowledge XDD

Ueda Atsuki on Japanese wikipedia, or you can google her if you're not afraid of seeing Amu's mom's boobs... but I can't because I'm at work XD;;

Also, he's apparently gone to the Keio escalator schools all his life (like Sho), and also has been on various cruises with his family and visited family friends in Beverly Hills... So it's becoming clearer and clearer why his description on Gamushara is "the most celebrity-like junior" or whatever |D;

Dear Amu, I know you're more than a bit rich and spoiled... but please try not to grow up to be an asshole >_>;;


what are you doing with that potato

Takaki/Yabu fic~

I'm back from the JUMP concert, and je_fqfest reveals are up, so here's my fic ^^ I wrote a little snippet from the JUMP in New York AU that faded_lace and I made up, and it was pretty fun writing them in America, so maybe I'll write more of it sometime~

Title: The Start of Something New
Pairing: Takaki Yuya/Yabu Kota
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 1,732
Beta: faded_lace
Summary: Their new life in New York was going to be awesome. AU in which Yabu and Takaki are from Texas.
Author's Note: Written for the 2014 je_fqfest Spring Fling, with the prompt Roadtrip! The AU was inspired by this set from the JUMP calendar this year that looked so much like a New York City apartment. The title is from High School Musical (I'm sorry), which I'm sure Yabu and Takaki would be big fans of in this~

Valentine's fic!

Posting for the Tomochoco Challenge! I didn't think I was going to get this fic done in time at all, but then we had a giant snowstorm and I had to cancel my plans for last night and this morning, so... I finished XD Sorry for posting a little late... it's still Valentine's Day on the west coast of the US?

All the tomochoco fics:
arashijun | faded-lace 1 2 3 | lady-michiru | mousapelli 1 2 3 | ohhai-yo | rikikomori | tokyoskater | vflmaeuschen 1 2 | yomimashou

Title: Giri-choco
Rating: G
Pairing: Jinguji Yuta/Nakamura Reia
Word count: 2,056
Beta: faded_lace
Author's note: In Japan giri-choco usually refers to chocolate given by women to their male coworkers and friends out of social obligation, and literally translates to "obligation chocolate." This was written for the Tomochoco Challenge, for the prompt 4. A-kun tries and fails all day to give B-kun his present. I'm dedicating this to my bff faded_lace, who deserves so much tomochoco for encouraging me to keep trying to write fic ♥ You can also read this at Ao3 if you prefer.
Summary: Someone as sexy and confident and popular and manly as Jinguji would definitely never get nervous over something as stupid as Valentine's Day.

Translation: Sexy Boyz in Popolo 2014.3

I meant to finish this translation on Saturday, but the time got away from me XD But when I saw them all making fun of Jinchan's ridiculousness, I had to share~ This is the short crosstalk from this month's Popolo between the current Sexy Boyz, Jinguji Yuta x Iwahashi Genki x Kishi Yuta x Miyachika Kaito. They discuss who is the cutest and who is the sexiest among the four of them, and lots of teasing ensues~

Translation: Kouchi and Taiga in Popolo 2013.11

I started this translation a while back, but I got stuck for a while on all the slang they use... but I managed to finish it today, so hopefully it's okay! Apologies for any errors on my part ^^;

In the November issue of Popolo, Yugo and Taiga each talked about a surprising incident with 5 other Juniors. Jesse, Hokuto, Shintaro, Jinguji, Kishi, Myuto, and Nishihata Daigo all make appearances, and I thought some of the stories were pretty amusing, so I hope you enjoy~

Birthdays~

There's other stuff I've been meaning to post about, but work has been super busy this week, and I can't let this go by without a post...

Happy 16th birthday to Haniuda Amu~~

I don't know how I started loving him quite so much, but he's just so cute and derpy and earnest and enthusiastic, and I love watching his frantic dancing on Shounen Club every week ♥ I just want the best for him and all of his friends ;~;

And of course, happy 16th birthday to Sou, too! He's growing up to be so handsome and completely unrecognizable from what he looked like at debut, and soon he's probably going to be taller than Shori, too XD He's an amazing dancer and such a great kid, and I hope that the stress of balancing high school and commuting to Tokyo and dealing with his crazy bandmates doesn't get to him too much...

Also, I'm a day early on this, but happy Thanksgiving and happy Hanukkah to anyone on my flist who celebrates either of those! I don't have any real plans for celebrating either one this year, but I am going to buy donuts tonight in honor of the first night of Hanukkah... to eat with faded_lace while watching the NTV Best Artist special XD I'm really happy that Jump is going to be on~ Less happy that Sexy Zone isn't, but what can you do... And Jump being on music shows is exciting, considering how infrequently they release anything >_>;;

Yuuki and Makoto fic~

I finally finished this fic last night~ There's pretty much nothing substantive about it, but I hope it's enjoyable XD


Title: Like A Blow
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jinbo Makoto/Satonaka Yuuki (Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou)
Word count: 1,516
Beta: faded_lace
Author's note: This is based on the backstory that Jesse and Yugo made up, in which Yuuki and Makoto first met in a fight in middle school. I translated the article here ^^ Also, apologies to ABC-Z for the title... it seemed fitting XD; You can also read this at Ao3 if you prefer.
Summary: Fighting him had been amazing, so really, it shouldn't have been a surprise that kissing him was just as good, or better.
