Topolect

Archive/RSS/Ask

noun The idiolect spoken by Top. Stylistic conventions include keysmashing, capslock and a smattering of typos. I post/reblog a lot of: Arashi, Kanjani8, Perfume, Japanese actresses, ~fashion and design~, things that I read that make me angry, We Got Married, j/kdramas, USian TV shows, and whatever I happen to have a passing fancy with. I make gifs sometimes, obsessively write in my tags, and try not to spoil people. :)

“What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly.”

Kill the belief that we have to earn our worth as people. 

We don’t become people by reaching a certain age, collecting awards, degrees, jobs, money. We are each born as individuals, as people—we have worth simply by being.

Ah, but you see. You don’t just protect me. We protect each other.

[subbed] Arashi’s Friendship Test 

When Aiba, who had to work for the whole day, decided to test the strength of Arashi’s infamous friendship through an e-mail. See who replied and who didn’t. And yes, this is how Arashi actually are in private.

According to the audiences who attended the filming when the VTR was shown, the contents of the mails were longer.

  • Arashi usually use the “reply all” function when they’re mailing each other, so when Aiba mailed them this, Nino and Jun only realized the mail when Sho replied. 
  • Sho was cleaning his house when Aiba mailed him, and he got worried because it’s when the show was still running, so he later sent another mail to ask if anything bad happened.
  • Ohno actually replied with a photo of him and a TV in front of him airing Aiba’s show to prove that he’s watching. He did that during the break of Kagiheya filming.
  • Sho wanted to take a photo of Aiba on TV too, but he didn’t know how because Aiba kept moving and there’s always someone next to him lol
  • After the show had finished that night, Aiba sent them another mail saying “IT’S DONE!!”, but Sho, who was out drinking with his friends got into his tsundere mode and replied “WHO CARES!”
