Hello everyone,

First of all, even if I'm pretty late with that – HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope, you all had a good start into 2018 and I really really do hope that 2018 will be a better year than 2017 has been to a lot of us.

Second, I am terribly sorry for kind of going on an unannounced hiatus (again).

To be honest with you, I am really struggling to balance my real life with my online life recently. There's a lot going on in RL, I have to figure out a lot of things and unfortunately, my default setting recently is something like "overwhelmed by everything" and "simply stresses out" which often makes it difficult for me to deal with lots of things all at once. Also, with a big fanfic project that I had to finish before Christmas as well as holiday season, respective preparations (and necessary "recovery period" afterwards), I really had my hands full and just couldn't find the time to come back here earlier. It's sad, but I had to realize that I simply cannot prioritize everything I'm involved into in the same respect, even if I wish I could. Sometimes, being – or trying ones best to be - what society calls an "adult", really sucks.


This said (sorry for the gloomy vibes), I am especially sorry that this happened just after I posted an entry with a giveaway, namely - if you remember - a giveaway for a Halloween Arashi doujinshi that I own twice (link here ).

It's unlike me to promise something and not stand in for that. I really did not mean to leave this giveaway unsolved for so long and would like to take this chance to thank the lovely participants for their really interesting and adorable answers and apologize for my late response. Thank you very much for your patience with me.

Without further ado now, please let me finally announce the winner of said giveaway *drum roll*:

[personal profile] southview!


Congratulations, dear! Your answer made me laugh and agree the most, so I would like to give you the mentioned doujinshi (if you still want it). Please send me your full name and address via message or e-mail so that I can send it to you as soon as possible! :)

Please go check out her amazing answer to my question (Imagine Arashi being invited to a Halloween party. Which member would dress up in which spooky costume, and why?) here!

All answers were hilarious and great, but sadly only one can be the winner. However, I would like to send those of you who did not win, at least a small "consolation prize". So if you are interested in that, [personal profile] ladyvidel and [personal profile] eve_aida, please also send me your full name and address via message/e-mail/LINE!


For now, I don't have more to say. I'll make another short posting since I started cross posting my Aibaexchange fanfic on AO3 in slightly revised version, so if you're interested in that, please check out my following post.

I wish you all a great start into the new week! I hope it will be a good one for everyone.

Best,

Sky
<3

Hello everybody,

Yes, I'm still alive... or am I rather resurrected from the dead? Who knows, anyway, I have a little fic for you, which I realised has not been posted to my AO3 collection yet. For some of you, this might be something "new", for some of you, probably not. This piece of fic was originally posted in the lj trick_or_fic event in 2016, however, this is an upgraded version as the first one was very rushed and rough. (Here, I'd like to insert my BIG thanks to [profile] silver_crystall aka [personal profile] kittykaty, [personal profile] wendyjoly, and of course my incredible beta [personal profile] jtaytt) Check it out here:

My Boyfriend, the Vampire

This is a spin off to my series "My Neighbors, the Vampires" which I posted here. In case you are unfamiliar with the series, I think you do not necessarily need to know the whole story, this can be read as a one-shot too, but if you have some time on hand or are interested, please go check out the main story ^.^

Furthermore, I'm doing a small Halloween doujinshi giveaway. In case you'd like to check it out, here we go!


Halloween-Doujinshi-Giveaway

Hello my dear friends and greetings from zombieland. That's apparently the place I inhabit recently, fighting against the struggles of life. However, today I resurrected from the hald-dead in order to invite you to join my Halloween-doujinshi-giveaway!

In fact, I do have the perfect Arashi doujinshi for this season on hand. It's halloween-themed, it's really funny, very cute, and of course, it's dealing with Arashi (no actual pairing involved, although if you squint very hard, you might be able to spot some Sakumiya ^.^). It's simply called "Halloween Party", drawn by my personal most favourite doujinshi circle, "whitebeans" (I mean, look at this beautiful cover in the picture below, I love them!) and was published in 2015. Of course, the language is Japanese but trust me, the pictures alone are beautiful and funny enough to look at.



I happen to have this doujinshi twice, since my dear friend Kitty bought one for me in Japan last time she went there, not knowing that I own it already ^^" However, I thought before storing it in my dusty shelf forever and ever, until it's forgotten and will come to revenge my neglectfullness by attacking me with painful paper cuts one night in my sleep, I'd better search for a new cosy home for it.

Interested? Then here is how you can enter the giveaway!

As you know, I'm a creative zombie, and so I would like you guys to unleash your monster of creativity too! No worries, I don't want you to write a whole fanfiction with your own blood, but I would like you to think up a creative answer for the following question.

Imagine Arashi being invited to a Halloween party. Which member would dress up in which spooky costume, and why?

You will have time to enter the giveaway for one week, so let's say until the end of Tuesday, November 7th.
Simply post your answer in the comments below!

Out of all answers, I will pick the one I like best and then announce the winner of the giveaway in the course of next week. Afterwards, I will send the doujinshi to the winner. Of course, I'll pay the shipping so there will be no costs at all for the winner.

With this, now please get creative, let me have your answers and don't forget to enjoy Halloween! What are you up for today, are you celebrating? Do you even care about Halloween? I invited a few friends and am currently doing preparations for when they arrive. We're going to cook and eat together and watch a bunch of horror movies. Of course, we will dress up too, and if you're interested, I'll tell you more details next week.

Happy Halloween,

Spooky-Sky
<3
