Since I see that Lochte/Phelps is experiencing a resurgence (as expected XD) and I still have all my old recs, I have compiled them here for the general benefit of humanity:

Currently watching: World Cup, natch. My ultimate loyalty goes to Germany (WHO ARE LIABLE TO GIVE ME A HEART ATTACK ONE OF THESE DAYS) but I'd like to see East Asia and the country I actually live in do respectably as well. Also I keep dreaming about cheering for Spain so I must support them subconsciously.

Currently listening to: Masa's mashups. Try: The LAST Fear, Do Me A Poker Face, Resonant Habit (lollll), Physical 3, and for NEWS fans, Hold On ~Yell~.

Currently reading: [livejournal.com profile] guede_mazaka's Hit-verse, massive football RPS AU populated with - in roughly this order - hackers, sound engineers, punk musicians, recording industry execs, pop stars, doctors, dealers, magazine editors, public prosecuters, and hit men. (Needless to say, more pairings than one can shake a stick at.) Must be seen to be believed. Starts out with the mostly well-adjusted Germans but I've gotta say it was Cristiano Ronaldo the coked out multiplatinum pop star* and his manager/agent Ruud van Nistelrooy that hooked me. XD Though Alessandro Nesta and Zlatan Ibrahimovic just showed up and promise to make things even more interesting. I say it's brilliant for its sheer scope alone. XD;;;;

*I maintain my theory that if Ronaldo were an narcissistic yet undeniably talented and extremely pretty musician/pop star who threw temper tantrums instead of a narcissistic yet undeniably talented and extremely pretty footballer who threw temper tantrums, I'd be hearing a different tune from an awful lot of LJ fans. XD (Excluding [livejournal.com profile] enraged, maybe.) Me, I think his capslock drama is hilariously entertaining.

How I acquired this knowledge: during a stressful week sometimes you just want to read a lot of really ridiculous fic covering every trope known to man.

If you are avoiding the cut you may have a heartbreaking fanvid instead. T_T

So I hear that [livejournal.com profile] je_holiday community revealed something or other? XD I was responsible for what is in all likelihood the silliest of the lot, One Thousand and One Tokyo Nights, which is not in fact an Arabian Nights AU but just Yamapi and Jin being Very Silly. XD (Mild Pin, but nothing too alarming.) I had a lot of fun writing it -- as in, I sat down and blew off steam related to another writing project by emptying the recesses of my mind without any regard as to how ridiculous the result was. XD ...it was fun! I also had it easy as it was for [livejournal.com profile] 4_03_am and [livejournal.com profile] phonestrap so I had a preeetty good idea what would go over all right. ;)

By the way, I'm never sure whether to repost challenge fic here or simply link and leave them be -- show of hands, what do you guys do?

In related news, I'm pretty sure all of [livejournal.com profile] je_ficgames is up now? So, if you feel like guessing that. (eta: Polls will be shut down on Sunday, so if you want to cast a vote, do it before then!) No one did manage to get [livejournal.com profile] je_holiday before the reveal, and at least one person expressed Surprise at the identity of the author being... me... which pleased me greatly, actually. :) It's nice not to be universally predictable.

People still hanging out here at least partly for fic-related reasons: a redux of that meme in which you tell authors your favorite piece of theirs is going around, and... actually I'm too lazy to link to it again. If you feel so inclined give me a heads up? :D Especially if this answer is something more recent. Just 'cause I'm curious.

Ending with a rec -- this is from Yuletide, but I don't even know if it counts as fanfiction. Theoretically the fandom is (coincidentally, haha) One Thousand and One Nights; in practice it reads as original fiction and wow did it blow me away. It's not so much the prose as, appropriately, the storytelling, but I really recommend it -- One Thousand And One And Counting.

song. Utada Hikaru - Take 5. This song is so gorgeous. I can't stop listening to it. I wish there was a good translation for me to link you all to. ): I may have to do it myself, instead...

fic. Door, by [livejournal.com profile] fightfair (Gokusen, Hayato/Ryu). I just finished rereading it. What an amazing fic. If you've somehow missed out on hearing about it do yourself a favor and go read it right now, it's so fantastic.

book. Japanland, by Karin Muller. Recommended to me by [livejournal.com profile] winterspel. I've read a lot of books about Japan, and a lot of books along the lines of foreign-author-in-Japan-tries-to-find-him/herself. This is not like those. It's absolutely fabulous. The writing is sharp and her anecdotes are unique and enthralling. I got all teary while reading the last couple chapters. Anyone interested in Japan should read this. And then tell me your thoughts. :)

I hope everyone's week starts off well! ♥
