I'm such an Arashi fan now. And yet, when I go to write Johnny's fanfiction, it's so easy to write Takabu. XD, WHO KNOWS WHY.
So I've got writer's block again on my senior project. And I've been wanting to write a 50 sentences fic for SO LONG. So I stole the alpha set from one of the comms and I wrote it based on that. Maybe someday I'll put it up there. If I'm brave enough, XD.
Basically, this was a way to try and get some inspiration flowing. I'll return to fanfiction when I'm done writing my senior project, promise. But honestly, I'm loving writing my own world. So maybe this is it for a while. Either way, I love you all and it's nice to come back.
Comments are appreciated because I miss you guys and I love hearing from you. Tell me what you think?
All my love,
