Title: Whispers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] walkwithheroes
Rated: G-PG-ish. No worse than the show.
Spoilers: Takes place after the show.
Word Count: 1,276
Disclaimer: Tatta Hitotsu no Koi and Hiroto and Nao are owned by NTV and Kitagawa Eriko. The thing with the angel wings was totally "borrowed" from the k-drama Wonderful Life.
Pairings: Hiroto/Nao, of course.
Summary: When they whisper to one another, they are saying the important things.
Author's Note: I've wanted to write a fic about this show for a long while. I really wanted to make it nice and fluffy, but . . .it didn't quite turn out that way. Written for [livejournal.com profile] kitsune714, who wanted some Hiroto/Nao fic. And, because she gets my crazy TattaKoi love.





Nao gives Hiroto the mittens their first weekend as an 'engaged-long-distance' couple. )

I watched episode ten of Jotei and found that I really enjoyed it. It started out as such a guilty pleasure, but by the end I just fell in love with it. Yes, it could be cheesy at times and there was some over acting, but it was a good show. I think the leads really grew over the ten episodes, too.

I'm also playing catch up on my other dramas from this season. I was away for ten days, and apperently during those ten days is when all the sub-groups decided to update. I'm downloading episode eight of First Kiss now, and after that I have to finish with Coffee Prince and catch up with Hana Kimi, Hotaru no Hikari and KO One.

On a side note: I heard Hotaru no Hikari's ending was only so-so and I'm bored with KO One - I'm just watching that show for Jiro Wang and Melody scenes. ('Cause I want them together, even if she is the teacher. Hey - in real life, he's less than two years younger than her. I'm just saying, it could work.)

I also had some time this weekend, so I made vids! I had the episodes on my computer, so I went ahead and made two more THnK videos. I figured that I should make all the videos I had in mind, while I had all the episodes on my hard drive. Which means that these are my last TattaKoi videos for a while.



Videos:


Title: How to Save a Life
Song: How to Save a Life by The Fray
Details: WMV file. 4:01 minutes. 18.0MB
Theme: I did a Nao vid, so this is my Hiroto video. It's all about his friendships and his romantic life.
Vider's Note: I wanted to make this video for a long time. But, when I sat down to make it, I almost shot my computer and than myself. WMM gave me such trouble. At one point, I had to go back and re-edit everything from 1:59-onward. Still, I hope you guys enjoy it.

Title: First Day of the Rest of My Life
Song: First Day of the Rest of My Life by Bright Eyes
Details: WMV file. 10.9MB. 2:40 minutes.
Theme: A simple video about Hiroto and Nao.
Vider's Note: By far, this is my best TattaKoi video. Everything just fit together so perfectly. And - Ayase Haruka has got the best shampoo ad hair in this series. Her hair looks amazing in the pool-fall scene and the re-meeting scene with Hiroto. She honestly gives Kame a run for his money in the awesome hair department. And, can I just say that the ferry ride scenes in episode nine still make me sad.

As for my next fanvid, I'm thinking of either another Strawberry on the Shortcake or a Hana Yori Dango vid. For S.O.S. I want to use Strange and Beautiful by Aqualung. And for HYD I'm thinking Solus by James Wendt. I actually have a huge list of fanvids that I want to do with all my dramas and films. Help!

First, I must share this clip: The boys of Arashi propose to their pretend girlfriends Some of the boys do well, others fail at life. Yet, I'd say yes to all of them.

I'm thinking of starting an original series. I have the idea of a rich boy falling for a poor girl, just like every girl-manga in the world. Only, turning it all upside down. Poor girl never falls for the rich guy; rich guy rethinks his choice. Etc, etc. I don't know. I think I'll work on the idea some more. Maybe I'll make a journal for it.

Oh, before I forget. . .

Title: Sail Away
Song: Sail Away by The Rasmus
Details: WMV file. 3:51 minutes. 15.64MB.
Theme: A video focusing on Hiroto and Nao from TattaKoi.
Vider's Note: This video made me want to shot myself. First the mp3 I had went all crazy - it said the song was seven minutes. Dude, it's a 3:49 second song! Then, the song I did use (by ripping the music video from youtube) kept going quiet, so I had no idea if the clips matched up or not. In the end, it took me two days and five hours to do this video. By far the longest its ever taken me to do a video. So. . . I'm done with it. I hope it's alright. Can't wait to hear what people think.
Vider Question: Anyone know a good lj comm for posting vids for J-dramas/films?

I had some time on my trip, so I ended up making five vids. Yes, five! I would have made more, but my Tree of Heaven episodes wouldn't/couldn't load into the video maker on the laptop I was using.

Oh! Remember that list of upcoming vids? Well, while looking through my CDs, I came across even more songs that would fit with even more of my favorite dramas. Oi! *shakes fist* Damn you, my CDs. Damn you to hell! Like I need more stuff to do. *rolleyes*

Anyway. . .

I made five, yes five, vids during my ten day trip. Some were hard (TattaKoi) and some were freakishly easy (Battle Royale, Be With You). I have to say that I'm sorry about any subtitles that show up in a couple of the vids. I love hardsubs, but not when making videos.





Everyone runs in Japan, because they're trying to get away from the angsty pain. )



I hope everyone enjoys the vids and I look forward to feedback/comments.

I hate Windows Movie Maker. I understand that its true purpose is to edit little home movies. But, must it freeze and have to close due to errors all the time? If a video is longer than three minutes, it's Error Message City. And, don't even get me started on how long it takes to upload episodes into the damn thing!

The main reason I'm ranting, is because I have several videos planned for the upcoming months. I don't know if I want to make them, if it'll take a whole day to upload videos and than hours upon hours to make the videos. The main problem is: when I start a video, it takes about two hours. 'Cause when I get started, I roll. But, having to stop and start again...AH!

Does anyone know of another easy to use, free video maker?

As for the videos I have planned:


Tatta Hitotsu no Koi:


How to Save a Life by The Fray. Again, it's been done. But, when I listened to it the other day, it screamed: That's Hiroto's life!


Battle Royale:

In Loving Memory... by So They Say. It'll be a movie-vid, focusing in on the main characters. (Side note: I need the mp3 for this one. Anybody have it?)



Doctor Who:

Suddenly I See by K.T. Tunstall. A Doctor/Rose video, using clips from S1 and early S2. Mainly, it's the Doctor's view on Rose.

Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode. It's about the Doctor and the way everyone sees him. Also, it'll focus on the way the Doctor sees others. I'll be using late S1 clips and S2 clips.


How It Ends by (The) Devotchkos. A character study video of Rose during S1 and S2.




I also really want to use Depeche Mode's Precious, I think it could fit in any of my fandoms. Maybe I'll make it into a project. I'll use Precious for my 'angst' vid in all my fandoms! (Ow. I can already feel the headache.)


Oh, I'll be gone from the 31-7, so if I don't answer your comments, don't feel bad. I'll do so when I get back.



And before I forget: I bring one more My Lucky Star Vid:


Title: Precious (Angst)
Song: Precious by Depeche Mode
Details: 3:58 min, 15.84MB, WMV
Theme: Just good old TQ/AX angst. ANGST! (Mm... angsty.)
Notes I used episodes 8-20 (more or less; it was actually more like 8-11 & 13-19) So, there are spoilers. And sadly... those darn suns.

Alternates : Chapter 15 (find the rest of the story in my memories) should be beta'ed and up no later than Thursday. My brand new shiny beta said it would be done today, but I haven't gotten an email. So, I'll give it a couple of days before I start to think that evil Yahoo ate my beta's email.    When I checked my email a hour ago, I saw the newly beta'ed chapter. It'll be up tonight!

It felt good to work on the story again, and I found myself making a few changes for the better. When I started the story I knew that not everyone was going to get a happy ending. And yet...looking over the plans for the next nine chapters, it looks like nobody will end up 100% happy. I don't want to get too spoilery...but, I seem to be going the J.K. Rowling route. And no, I don't mean that Rose, Ianto, and Levi will spend their next two chapters hanging around the forest like some dopes. I'm becoming quite evil with my characters, I think. 

Now that Alternates is near it's end (or at least I've planned it all), I've been thinking about my next large fic. Alternates will be the first long-term fic I'll finish, so I'm kind of excited to start something else. Maybe a second part to the series? Maybe a series about the missing Torchwood Four? I'm not sure, but I'd love to hear from everyone about that. 

And, on a total random note: I think I may do a series/episode by episode review of My Lucky Star. It's by far the best Twdrama I've seen. Plus, I kind of want an excuse to watch all twenty episodes again. 

Also, I re watched some of Tatta hitotsu no koi this morning. I have to say that I adore that show, despite (or maybe because of) all the sappy cliches and the skinny, skinny, male lead. As I said on [profile] mysticblueside 's journal:

I don't remember why I started watching this show, but I walked away with a new favorite. Your post has some great reasons to love this show, but there are more. The characters seem very real and they go through their emotions in a way that any twenty year old would. Unlike a lot of romances, the characters think about the afterward. They know they're twenty and the love you have at twenty isn't always the love you have for the rest of your life. A great example of this is when Hiroto and Nao are on the ferry/boat and discuss why they couldn't run away together.

Plus: all five members of the main cast have awesome chemistry with one another. And, I love the giggle/laugh out loud moments when they're together.

Something else: the cliches are done in interesting and refreshing ways:

Take for example, Yuuko (Erika Toda) and Kou (Koki Tanaka)'s relationship. Yuuko starts out being utterly grossed out by Kou, but ends up falling for him. Why? Because he's sweet and real with her. Is it cliche? Yeah. But, somehow it works here. Maybe, because Yuuko messes up a bit when it comes to Kou. He's great, but that doesn't mean she'll suddenly want to introduce him to her rich and good-looking friends.

And really, Hiroto and Nao's story is one huge cliche. Rich girl/poor boy. (Almost creepy) Over-protective older brother. Illness. Totally innocent/naive girl/boy whose had a hard life. All cliches. But somehow, and it may be due largely to the chemistry between Kame and Ayase, it works. From episode two you're rooting for Hiroto and Nao. They just seem so open and honest with one another. They're happy together, and they see themselves being together forever. The relationship is clumsy, awkward, sweet, even funny; it's everyone's first love put on the little screen.

This show is sappy and full of cliches. It's manipulative and there are moments that make you think: 'Wait...what?', but so's life. One moment you're laughing with your friends (and this show has some laugh out loud moments), the next you're doing something totally stupid to impress a girl/guy, and the next your in love; I think I just explained the first episode.


Ayase and skinny, skinny, eat a sandwich,  Kame make Hiroto and Nao the sweetest couple ever. You root for them until the last moment. And when it's over, you wish you could stay with them just a bit longer. 

Could vids for these two show be on the way...?
