 Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
Oh no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken
--- from Sonnet CXVI; William Shakespeare

Polaris )
I turned to face her, my face registering a strange look as if she had gone insane. "What are you babbling about? What's about the North Star?"
She snapped out of her deep thought and blushed. "Oh, sorry. I was just thinking out loud."
"So what is this...er...star thing?"
"You're hopeless." She shook her head pityingly. "I'm talking about the North Star...more popularly known as the Polaris."
"Okay." Raising an eyebrow, I motioned for her to continue.
"It's a star."
I snorted. "I know that. It wouldn't be called the North Star if it wasn't."
"Well, you're not interested in this astronomy stuff anyway. You're a...mystery books sort of girl." She shrugged and continued walking on ahead of me.
I sighed impatiently and briskly followed her.
It was not my fault that we don't share the same interests. She was the imaginative type - prone to liking the supernatural, fairytales, magic, other worlds...and astronomy. Although the latter was a science, she was fascinated with the stars and the sky, and sometimes would attach different stories and legends to those twinkling lights. She still believes in angels, fairies and all that trash. I bet if Captain Hook kidnaps her as ransom for Peter Pan, she won't make the slightest objection. A bit childish for a teenager like her.
On the other hand, I lean more on the practical side. I must admit, I never had what she has - an imagination so infinite as the universe she was passionate about. I love fiction as well, but I prefer reading Agatha Christie or even Jane Austen than indulge in anything fanciful. Watching detective shows on television make me satiated.
I wouldn't know what a phoenix is from a peacock, because they're both birds to me. She wouldn't go and find out why the school's basement is locked for fear of vengeful ghosts. Simple as that.
If our interests were contradictory, it's the same case as with our personalities. She's romantic, I'm a cynic. She's warm, compassionate, and generous - I'm cold, insensitive and selfish. She's affectionate and amiable, I loathe emotion and human contact.
Still, we're friends. Best friends at that.
Maybe the saying "opposites attract" holds true., at least for the both of us.
"Hey!" I ran towards her, stopping at her side. "You never continued about that...uh..."
"North Star." She replied monotonously.
"Oh, come on." I gave her a lopsided grin, my trademark for asking forgiveness. I tend to tease her rather cruelly, but I would often end up guilty for doing so. "Tell me more."
Her bright eyes had a suspicious glare, then she relented. "All right." Her round, pixie-like face now held excitement. "The North Star, or more popularly known as Polaris, is a star located in the constellation Ursa Minor. It's always located in the North, so when sailors didn't have compasses with them, they would often use the Polaris as a guide."
"Always located in the North?" I asked in disbelief. Stars, like planets, move...at least that's what I know.
She nodded eagerly. "Always."
"It never moves?"
She shook her head firmly. "Never. And so, if you're lost, just look for the Polaris. You'll always find your way."

[Hetalia] Untitled

 In Axis Powers Hetalia (a fandom which screwed up our world's history as we know it, and has spawned millions and millions of fujoshi and BL fans everywhere), I am a fan of Arthur Kirkland (England) and Honda Kiku (Japan) f0r so many reasons. But I am also a fan of Wang Yao (China) and Kiku, since I think the dynamics of their relationship - also known as "sibling romance" - has a bittersweet feel to it, what their shared childhood and then the betrayal and all that. I think I am more unrestricted and more inspired in writing Yao x Kiku more than Arthur x Kiku (and even more than Roderich x Vasch), despite my love for them.

I have an upcoming  [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence project for this pairing (Yao x Kiku), and that thought gave birth to the fic below.

[Love Mode] He Says, He Says (Attraction)

 Notes: I love Love Mode! I love Takamiya x Izumi! They're like Akihiko and Misaki of Junjou Romantica (another favorite) in a former lifetime. Love Mode is one of the BL works that converted me to the fujoshi way of life. This is something experimental for Livejournal's [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove community, which I am planning to submit something to.

The word is "attraction", true to it being the first stage of a romantic relationship. This short-but-exceeding-the-100-word-limit (and sometimes veering off from canon) work is part of a light, somewhat humorous, and hopefully successful submission I will be doing, like the Pretear thing. I will probably continue this (and stick to the 100 word rule) once I get immersed in Love Mode again.

[Pretear] Soyokaze

Title: Soyokaze
Fandom: Shin Shirayuki Hime Densetsu Pretear
Pairing: Hayate x Himeno Awayuki
Rating: G to PG-13
As part of my back-to-writing process, I decided to join the [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence livejournal community, which is all about using 50 different words and writing a sentence for your favorite fandom pairing. Yes, 1 SENTENCE ONLY. So it is a mental exercise, because you have to tell a complete story in one sentence. For me, the whole thing is a mental exercise and a jumpstart as well.  I chose the title Soyokaze, and it's a Japanese word meaning "gentle breeze". Breeze = Wind; Hayate is a kigo (seasonal word) related to wind. (Theme Set: Gamma)

[Kingdom Hearts] Hikage

Title: Hikage
Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Pairing: Riku x Sora
Rating: PG-13
Notes: This came from a strange idea lurking inside my brain. (I think it's the effect of Koutetsu Sangokushi episode 25, but...) I had this weird brainstorm as to the whole Riku/Sora situation. Riku was the true Keyblade master, but since he chose the darkness, he forfeits that and Sora gets the Keyblade instead. So why did Riku chose the darkness? And because I adore Riku and Sora, I was thinking what if Riku chose the darkness because of something else? If Riku becomes the Keyblade Master, then Sora will be automatically the antagonist, right? For checks and balances, someone would be the darkness, and I'm sure it won't be Kairi. So this whole thing was born, with Riku knowing that he was destined as the Keyblade Master and the hero and all that, but chose a different path because he didn't want Sora to be a Heartless. Hikage means "shade".

[Junjou Romantica] Not Quite a Fairy Tale - Prologue

Inspiration here
#09: King
If Usagi-sensei were a host in a club, he’d be King and Misaki would be the minimum wage worker washing dishes, and they would still end up in a closet with Akihiko’s hands gripping Misaki’s hips tightly.

Once upon a time, there lived a terribly rich and devilishly handsome King who could have everything he wanted, except for true love. And as Fate would have it, there also lived a young man whose heart is pure as his pockets are empty. An otherwise normal day would bind two lonely hearts together and let them live happily ever after.
But this is not a fairytale. Nor is this a soap opera. 
Though it is true that there lived a King yearning for true love, and there lived a young man who will do anything and everything just so he could get money. 
And in a small, glitzy club teeming with life, our heroes' strange adventure begins.
