Today and Atobe's Gift


- I sorted a huge pile of pictures and projects on my desktop into their appropriate folders. It's one of my least favorite things to do But of course, I wouldn't have this problem if I saved them to the right folders in the first place. =.= My desktop is one of the only places where I am so disorganized.

- Read Part 4 Chapter 4 of PoT/FE to see what on earth I wrote and to see if I could move the "Reading Books" scene to Yanagi's chapter. Yeah, I didn't remember writing all that I did for that scene and my mind was blown lol. I think I remember everything else I did during NaNo, but that was like "What? There's all that detail and even Yagyuu is in the scene when I thought it was only Sanada and Yanagi? Do not remember!" But it was so nice to sit and read and laugh at the funny moments. And all of the Sanada torture. <3

- Passed the halfway point of Part 4 Chapter 1 in writing. Niou talks a loooooot haha. Yagyuu and Niou discuss their childhood/past - it's a nice change from writing about the past in flashback form. Once that discussion is done, then it's time to push the plot ahead for one of its largest emotional obstacles. Looking to wrap up this chapter soon.

- Watched Atobe's Gift because I LOVE it and haven't seen it in a few months. And I used to watch it like every other week. It was real fun 'cause the first time I watched it, I had only seen like ten episodes of Nationals and almost all of the Fuji and Tezuka and Atobe matches. And then I started getting the inside jokes and figuring out the rest of the characters as time went on and I watched/read more PoT. And this is what Hymn gets for doing things out of order lol. But Hymn enjoys the out-of-order thing. Hooray for spoilers too!

Handsome guy <3 His character is so much love.

I had ideas in the past for a Rikkai Athletic Festival. They look badass here in their basketball uniforms. Where is Yukimura's headband though?

See… if U-17 Loser Camp left the boys hanging in the trees too long, they turn into what Yanagi is here. Also, I lol at spirit!Shinji.

Who would have guessed that Jackal knew how to ski? And skied like a pro! In a track uniform on a snowy mountain.

I dunno Kirihara… you tell me lol.

Lookin' good there Yanagi. I love Yanagi, I do.

Unff. Dat glorious ass.

NaNo was my first "rush" writing so the scenes I wrote in the later half of the month where I didn't have any time to pre-plan are very vague in my memory. But yeah, the "WTF WAS I ON??" feeling feels good. I'm glad you enjoy it too!!

This movie is awesome. I want to watch again. But I am now at school in a planning hour. Cannot watch yet!

Jackal and his pro skiing skillz needs to be part of a fic. I feel as if I should write this fic - Rikkai does winter sports. *jots it down*
Feb. 21st, 2012 05:21 am (UTC)
It's so cool that you don't remember your writing but you like it! Good sign! (the liking it part lol)

Ooo, Atobe's Gift! Atobe's extravagance, Jackal's skill, Yagyuu's stoic exterior, Kirihara's innocent perversion AND Sanada's jersey. <333
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:14 pm (UTC)
Haha, it is! I honestly usually do remember a lot of it, but it was written during rush!November and I haven't looked at half of the chapters since then because I've been either busy with something else or trying to get ahead on Part 4.

See? Isn't it the best? :D I actually like Yukimura's look with the jacket over his basketball jersey too. ALL THE GOOD STUFF. And that fine behind of Atobe's... you must not forget that!
Feb. 21st, 2012 06:55 am (UTC)
Totally fell asleep on you in chat tonight....GOMEN NASAI! As for the fic, ganbare in editing! I loo kforward to reading Nioh being chatty :)
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:17 pm (UTC)
Hey-o! It's okay - you may have needed the rest! Thank you for the luck!
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:11 am (UTC)
lol Akaya! XD
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:22 pm (UTC)
I've watched that scene many times and I still don't know where those shorts come from. He sort of passes a person and pulls it out of nowhere. MAGIC!
Feb. 21st, 2012 05:27 pm (UTC)
Probably there was a deleted orgy scene inbetween~ XD
Feb. 21st, 2012 06:55 pm (UTC)
Huh! I never thought about that. The animation does skip for a split second there to me too. Now I understand the real reason why there are many half naked boys in a pool!
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:36 am (UTC)
I love rediscovering stuff I've written and amusing myself :-)

Atobe's Gift was a cracktastic movie in sooo many ways :-)

*hugs you*
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:24 pm (UTC)
It is amusing. I don't often get that chance to re-read my stuff after it's posted because I'm always on the next project, but I have chapters I haven't opened since November to edit.

Atobe's Gift is a fair amount of crack, but it is so amazing. And heartwarming <3
Feb. 21st, 2012 09:50 am (UTC)
Yay for re-reading things. Here I am at 3:45 in the morning, considering writing. You did a giant PoT fanfic for NaNo? At least, that's what I'm understanding (considering the time..yeah) That's what I did...and I'm still trying to finish it. :/

And Atebe's Gift...It's been a while since I've watched it. But everytime time I see Renji at the start line of the race, I always get the impression that he's "Why the hell am I here and doing this?" I also enjoy him haning from the tree. (I made an icon of it and occasionally use it...It's usually a "WTF?" Or "Brain broken" one. ^.^
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:35 pm (UTC)
Ahhhh 3:45am in the morning! Why an early/late? time to be thinking about writing, but it has happened to me before. I was in bed by midnight 'cause I substitute teach and usually have to get up at 6am.

I did Part 3 of my Prince of Tennis/Fire Emblem fic because I didn't originally plan on doing NaNo and then I joined 7 hours before the start time lol. So that's how I ended up choosing that story since it was fresh in my mind and would give me the push to finish it.

Good luck on finishing your NaNo! What did you do for yours?

Haha, I can see that about Yanagi, but I think he looks like a good runner :) I liked looking at the lineup of runners there because it's interesting to see if they thought about it or they just randomly picked people. And the tree lol. He's so dry when he responds to Marui... "Isn't it obvious I'm playing the part of a spirit?". Nice idea to use it as an icon!
Feb. 21st, 2012 04:53 pm (UTC)
I couldn't sleep. I had a bit of an annoying expierence the evening before and I kept going over the "what if"s of it.

My NaNo consisted of writing about the future of Niou - how he met his wife, how screwed up his family came about, and then his son kind of took over the story. I now have half an idea how it's going to end - finally.

He definitely has the legs of a sprinter (though why put him at the start of the race instead of the end? Then again, there's the plot contrivance, so...no one would really care ^.^'). And I think they did put a bit of thought into it, since Kamio was one of the runners.
Feb. 21st, 2012 10:46 am (UTC)
I need to watch this :D
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:36 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes you do :) I should post more screenshots at some point. I love it so much!
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:26 pm (UTC)
Maybe Yukimura only needs the headband for tennis. It doesn't look as though he's actually going to participate.

I think they should just wear those to play tennis in.
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:44 pm (UTC)
Who knows? I guess I always assumed he had a headband for any sports related activities. I can't tell if they are currently watching the soccer game or the scene switched to them watching the basketball tournament. Now I must go back and watch again.

Lol, the mental image of them playing in basketball jerseys is lolzy. But at least we would get to see some more of their arms haha.
Feb. 21st, 2012 01:47 pm (UTC)
Now you're just making excuses to watch. XD

See? I know what I'm talking about. :D
Feb. 21st, 2012 02:33 pm (UTC)
Re-reading, not remembering, but liking it! That must mean it's good! And Sanada torture is always good! :D

. . .



Atobe's Gift is one of the things that made me love Atobe (and sortofkindof ship Imperial)!

I wish Yukimura and Sanada were shown actually playing basketball. It makes me wonder how Sanada and Yukimura would incorporate something from their tennis (like what Echizen's Drive B (?) during the Prince of Billiards episode, and Fuji's Higuma Otoshi in volleyball during the episode wherein they throw a party for their coach).
Feb. 21st, 2012 06:59 pm (UTC)
Ahhh!!! I love the icon! Do you have the original picture?

Haha, yeah, I love my Sanada torture. Especially when it's Yanagi doing it in his clever ways! Or Yukimura. Three Demons love <3

YOU MUST REWATCH IT. IT'S SO GOOD. Summer is good time.

How could you not ship Imperial while watching it lol? I don't ship them other than rival friends (I hardly ship people anyway and especially not cross-school), but there was so much Tezuka/Atobe love there.

There were so many scenes that I wished they showed during Atobe's Gift. I wanted to see more of the soccer match or maybe some of the baseball game (two of the Seigaku guys had baseball uniforms on). Or different legs of the race (I can't imagine that the same person skied/snowboarded/sledded down the entire snow mountain and then what looked like the water slide).

Maybe they just played straight-up basketball? XD
Feb. 22nd, 2012 12:01 pm (UTC)
Over here~

. . . Or, maybe later or tomorrow. :D *remembered she has it in four parts on her iPod* I used to watch part two, wherein Yagyuu and Marui enter the haunted house and the couple show, and part three, wherein the competition begins, but not the whole movie.

Back when I first watched Atobe's Gift (a year ago), I didn't like Atobe much (NO DON'T KILL ME D: ). So, yeah, didn't appreciate all the fan service. (<-- didn't know it was fan service back then). I just remembered, I didn't even notice the fan service even when it was right under my nose (like, "Shishido-san! Why are you over there?"). Absolutely didn't have a clue after watching the whole anime, OVAs, and the movies. Not even when my cousin and I saw fan art of Oishi hugging Eiji and Atobe I only found out about the world of BL through fan fiction. xD

I wish they showed all of the games :(

I dunno lol xD Even if they don't incorporate their moves and stuff, it'd still be cool to see them play a sport other than tennis. :D
Feb. 23rd, 2012 03:21 am (UTC)
Thank you very much! Ah, I see that it's a card :)

*hides the Tarundoru Bat* Hey hey, it's okay if you didn't like Atobe. I just liked seeing all of the characters together (and I didn't know it was fanservice either since I had barely seen the series like I mentioned and therefore didn't get most of the inside jokes). And it's totally okay that you didn't see BL while watching either! I saw friendships and rivalries and deep bonds and all that, which I think makes the series so wonderful ^^

I know! All of the games would have been awesome!

My vote goes to Quidditch with Prince of Tennis characters. Yes I have thought about this. A lot. XD
Feb. 21st, 2012 04:23 pm (UTC)
I want to read that :o

And ahh I have to watch Atobe's gift again, too. I love it. It was so cute when the plane left and Kabaji saw what Atobe had "written down on the city" for him with all those lights. I actually sniffed because it was so cute haha.

Of course Jackal knows how to ski! They ski all the time in Brazil u.u xD
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:01 pm (UTC)
What? My Prince of Tennis/Fire Emblem story? I have Prologue, Part 1, and Part 2 up on ff.net if you want a link.

I totally felt the "Awwwww!!!!" when I saw what Atobe did with the city lights. Atobe's just so loving and really cares for his friends. I. LOVE. HIM.

Hahaha, totally! Jackal has pro skills for skiing from his days in Brazil! He's really the Prince of Skiing!
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:06 pm (UTC)
Yes please °^°

Right? Everyone thinks he's so arrogant but actually he's quite caring haha. I love him too >o< Have to write my next Tango fic soon! Starting next week >.<

Of course he is XD Brazil is the perfect ski resort. Just look it up on google maps, you can see all this snow lol I guess he was very very sad and broken when he realized he can't ski as much in Japan. So he started playing tennis instead.
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:10 pm (UTC)
Here I hope you enjoy it! Lots and lots of hard work has gone into it. It has consumed my life!

I like that he's this wonderful balance of confidentally arrogant but truthfully caring. And he's the Ultimate Hard Worker! Totally my favorite character. :) Good luck on your fic! I hope that it turns out the way that you want it too! Do you put your stories on your journal or on a different website?

It explains why he has so much endurance. Skiing is serious business. >D Jackal's a true pro. He could have always taken on indoor ice skating or hockey haha if he wanted to stick with the cold theme.
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:35 pm (UTC)
nyahahaha. Okay, I'll read it! I have to catch my beta somewhen when I start writing my fic. When she's unavalible, I'll send it to you instead XD

Yeah, that's true. He's great! But I gotta say, Sanada is also very caring. But, well, rather in his head haha.
I put them in my art community, devil_yaha ^^ there are already a few there but I wrote them years ago without having a beta. When I read them again not too long ago, I wanted to smash my past-me for writing with that grammar haha (It's still not the best, but well~)

Indeed. xD He's not the iron wall but the snow wall lol. Well, maybe he's doing that in winter? Tenipuri is all about summer, so.... Here the indoor ice skating halls are opening in autumn, in summer they're closed. maybe it's the same in Japan haha
Feb. 21st, 2012 05:08 pm (UTC)
Ahaha, my Desktop is all ordered chaos. I know where everything is, and where everything isnt XDD

Atobe's Gift was loltastic. Everyones such donuts in that ;DDD LOL @ Yagyuu being so frightened he froze still lmao! And Kiri pinching someones pantsu XDDD Loved that AtoTez moment too.
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:05 pm (UTC)
I got it down to that every spot on the screen is filled, but none are stacked in the upper right corner (so 151 icons instead of 300+). I know exactly how you feel! Yay organized chaos! After 250, I do start to feel cluttered even though the desktop hasn't changed looks since 151.

I love donuts. Nom nom nom. You can't tell 'cause he's got his eye-blocking megane on and he's all stiff anyways... but we know the truth! Kirihara would be the one to knick someone's pantsu too. Ahhh... who doesn't love the AtoTez moment? :D I need to find some time to make a whole entry of Atobe's Gift. I love it so.
Feb. 21st, 2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
that's right. DAT ASS.
Feb. 21st, 2012 07:06 pm (UTC)
Dat lovely glorious ass. And his pink-bottomed shoes ;)

*coughs* I'm sorry, for a moment, I forgot myself Atobe, it's your fault!

Oh, you mean like this?
I found that picture years ago and still don't know who it is haha. faithlucifel mused it might be Takiguchi Yukihiro, but we're not sure. still, dat ass....
Feb. 21st, 2012 11:55 pm (UTC)

Feb. 22nd, 2012 03:47 pm (UTC)
Eh, you can't see the picture itself from the link? Strange. However, yes, the Myu picture on that page haha.

I guess I'll accompany you there xD
Feb. 23rd, 2012 03:23 am (UTC)
It was strange, but I was able to find it by clicking around a little bit.

Permission to repost this on my journal w/ credit to you for showing it to me? ninja!TakiYuki must be mentioned often lol. Because he shows up in the most random of places to me (but I looked up like any available magizine scans and found all the ones he's in so he can't ninja me hardcore anymore LOL).
Feb. 23rd, 2012 12:48 am (UTC)
Hymn-chan!! ^^
It seems you wrote a lot more, ne? ^___^ Ureshii~

And that OVA. I just watched it once but it was too hilarious I even can't watch it again XDDD
Feb. 23rd, 2012 03:15 am (UTC)
Yup, definitely wrote more. Thank you! :)

Watch it again! And again! And again! It's silly, but heartwarming. And full of Atobe. Again!
Feb. 26th, 2012 09:34 pm (UTC)
So organized!!! I just make a folder that sayas "Desktop at *date*" and have like too many folders like that XDDDDDDD

Awww Atobe's grift is so much loveeeeee and I've only seen it once... *needs to watch it again*
