I decided to turn my journal officially into a semi-friends only journal (officially because I noticed that I unintentionally used it as a such anyways the whole time already o_O Took me some time, I know ^^”). That means that personal journal entries regarding my private (non-fandom related) life are friends-locked. Fanfiction-, graphic-, lyrics- and fandom related entries will stay open for everyone. Dorama-related posts as well as my subbing projects got moved to my community "Sky of Secrets". Please head there if you're interested! ^^
I’m open minded and appreciate to make new contacts and friends so if you want to add me (and you want me to add you back) please leave a comment with a few words about our common interests or whatever you want to talk about, I won't bite, I promise! Please understand that I won’t add back people who add me without any comment or with completely empty journals because I don’t want to take the risk to add bots ^^"... Thank you for your understanding!

H!P-Fan since… can’t remember o.o around 2008 or when did it start? XD
Arashian since end of 2011/beginning of 2012
Favorite seasons of the year are spring and autumn and I can’t cope well with heat
I often suffer from headaches or slight colds as well as sleeping trouble (do I see any connection here? o_O)
I’m shy with people I don’t know well but with people I like I’m very talkative and open
I can be really sarcastic (but I don’t mean it in a bad way I promise!)
My mood can switch from overly happy to deeply sad within seconds... and the other way round as well
I try to be there for my friends as much as I can and I love my friends and my family more than anything else
I'm a bit of an airhead sometimes (I have to admit ^^”), don’t have a good orientation or a plan were to go in my life o.o further, I'm a disastrous organizer... don't give me that task, it won't end in a good way...
I like pizza, fruits, vegetables, rice, chips and ice cream a lot but I love and hate food at the same time (we have a really complicated relationship somehow…)
I’m no good with alcohol (and my friends know well, why… >.<”)
Totally obsessed with Japanese doramas
I'm talking in my sleep but noone seems to understand what I'm telling them so I don't know what it is about... anyways, sorry to my friends who I wake with my stupid habit when we sleep over...
I love cat’s… and flowers...
How I became a Fan of JE (my looong looooong fandom-life-story XD):
I’m not that sure any longer if it started with the music or with a specific dorama… well, maybe it was because of the music...
I’m a fan of music since I can think. I attended classes back at school, focusing on music, attended the school choire, learned some instruments (guitar (I suck in playing guitar unfortunately), dulcimer, ocarina, flute) and spend a lot of my spare time with singing or listening to music. In my teenage years I was mostly interested in random Anime soundtracks and diverse groups from America, Germany, etc. I had a relatively wide range of what I was listening to but most of it was settled in the Rock or Pop genre. I think my first really big fandom was the finish group “The Rasmus” (and that was the first group I wrote fanfictions about as well XD) and around that time I started to get interested in Japanese groups as well. My favorite Japanese groups soon were for example the J-Rock group MUCC, which I still like a lot. I started to get interested in Idolmusic as well when I got to know Morning Musume and other H!P-Acts like Buono! and °C-ute (and thanks to that I finally met my BFF a few years ago <3).
A few years later I started to get more interested in Japanese doramas (guided there from my liking of J-Horror movies and stuff like that). When I watched “Yukan Club” (I think it was in 2010), I fell for the title track “Keep the faith” of KAT-TUN and started to follow the group. Soon there followed NEWS but due to the lack of activity following the group was kinda frustrating… in 2011 when I watched the Japanese dorama “Ikemen desu ne” I fell for the title track “Everybody Go” of Kis-my-Ft2 (as well as for their member Fujigaya Taisuke X//D) and started to follow that group which reactivated my interest in other JE-groups as well (right, still no Arashi in my fandom-life-story) and I searched for information about NEWS (falling for Koyama for the second time in my life).
During my winter holidays 2011/2012, when I watched a fanvideo about Koyama Keiichiro, there was a song in the background which I loved from the first second I heard it! I knew it wasn’t NEWS who sang it and so I tried to find out who was the interpret… the song was “Tokkei Jikake no Umbrella” by Arashi. THAT was when I fell for them. So. Much....
I wanted to know more about their songs and soon I got completely caught (thanks to Tokkei, Troublemaker, Lotus, Monster and a lot of other great stuff).
It didn’t take long until Arashi became my most favorite group and since the beginning I was a big fan of Nino because I thought he looked nice and friendly (and good of course XD) and I loved his voice the most. When I watched “Ryusei no Kizuna” I totally fell for his acting skills as well and at this time at the latest I was completely fallen for that guy… who is my ichiban even today (and my love for him is growing with every day XD). Soon after I “discovered” the group for myself, I realized that I knew Arashi from before (but only because of their name and their song Sakura Sake which I loved already back then in 2008/9 or whatsoever, but for some reasons I didn’t follow the interpreter then – maybe it was just not written there and so I didn’t search deeper ^^”) and that the first Arashi member I got to know must have been Jun due to the dorama “Kimi wa Petto”…
You see… somehow my two biggest obsessions – music and doramas – always went hand in hand and led me to my favorites sooner or later XD (It was inevitable to start liking Arashi – it was fate! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3)
Nowadays I can’t imagine my daily live without JE – especially Arashi of course. I always listen to their music, I love watching their doramas and variety shows (even if it’s hard to catch up with everything but yei – better for me, so much stuff to watch *_*). I write and read a lot of Arashi-fanfictions (especially about my OTP Sakumiya) or create graphics when I have time and the right muse. When I’m feeling down, Arashi is cheering me up. When I’m happy, Arashi is there with me as well. I love them so much! I even turned my BFF into a fan of them :P (hehe XD) and I got to know a loooot of nice and awesome people through Arashi and other JE-Acts, like NEWS.
Thanks to JE my life is brighter than it would be without and even if it’s sometimes a really expensive hobby to follow, I don’t want to miss it!
I hope that Arashi (or JE in general) will guide me to a lot of more nice people out there! So – nice to meet you all!
