**Introduction Post**  


My journal is now friends only. If you'd like to friend me, please leave a comment here telling me a little about yourself and what your interests are.

Rules are here. Please abide by them.

~~~~

I had some blather written in this post before, but I decided to turn it into an introduction post, listing everything I could possibly want about me on the internet....on the internet. ^^;

Although I will say, I change depending on my mood so.. The info here is *generally* reliable. xD

It's long. You don't have to read it. If you do, YOU DESERVE A MILLION COOKIES. (If you don't like cookies, food/man of choice.)

Name: Lilianne. My mother named me after the flower, the Lily of the Valley. :D

Nickname(s): Lily, Lilerzz, Lil, Lee, Rima, Richan (those two are mainly used by my bestiexdiamond_7x but you are welcome to call me either) Everyone calls me Lily, except my parents and sometimes teachers. But you can call me whatever you like. :)

Age: 17. (Hard to believe! I don't feel like it..) Which brings me to my...

Birthday: September 27th. I'm a true Libra. I don't follow horoscopes often, but they're fun to read and certainly amusing sometimes. Although it can be said I'm a definitive Libra, being that I'm very love-oriented, methodical, analytical, extremely indecisive, creative, just, a good listener, and I detest conflict and will avoid it at any cost.
Additionally, my lucky day is supposed to be Friday and my boyfriend and I started dating on a Friday.. My ruling planet is Venus, and that's my favorite planet.. My lucky color's supposed to be pink (Yamapi, is that you?..) and my birthstone is the sapphire. (Beautiful gem)

Where I am: I'm currently living in Hialeah, Florida. I was born here (well, Miami Beach), raised here, and am still here - will likely be here until I graduate college (unless I decide to attend it in another state or possibly study abroad). Hialeah is not necessarily a small city, but it's certainly eclectic. It's just south of Miami and north of Key West. There are tons of things to do here, people to see, places to go.. And of course, being Florida, it's always extremely hot. (I can't dumb this down and I'm not exaggerating; you can't even walk out of your house to get to the car without starting to sweat o_o) The temperatures are getting really ridiculous down here.. Result of being so close to the equator. -___-
As of right now, I'm a junior in high school and very much one of those people who's "floating in between" in school. What I mean by this is, I'm not one of those people who *adores* school and is a go-getter and can't wait to go to college, but I'm also not one of those people who abhors it and finds it useless. I'm not very aggressive (at all) and I tend to be one of those quiet observers as opposed to a well-spoken student. Not to say I don't speak my mind (I tend to do this often) but I take my time to mull things over.. I'm very analytical. You can ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you I literally see everything from any possible angle... It's sort of frustrating sometimes but makes for easy writing, which is something I love doing. (hence the LiveJournal..)

Likes: God, life, nature, JE, art, music, Japan, literature, friends, family, Koyama Keiichiro<3, animals, writing, carbohydrates (specifically bread and spaghetti), NEWS<3, manga, the colors purple and yellow, lemons, sweet things, dramas, Almond Joy, birds, Yamapi<3, the rain, scented candles, sketching, Arashi<3, fire, silence, True Blood, fresh school supplies, rainbows, Ninomiya Kazunari<3, flowers, the zoo, DBSK<3, VIDEO GAMES♥, Ruby<3 (the sister I wish I had, but we're pretty much like that anyway), Sakurai Sho<3, the sound of keys clacking away, anime, notepads, sleep, the moon, beef jerky, Jazzy<3 (my Yorky), my boyfriend Chris (though he makes this difficult at times, I can't help but love him in the end), languages, horror movies, lightning, making graphics, musing.

Dislikes:
TYPOS D:, PAPERCUTS D<, HICCUPS D: D: D:, writer's block, misplaced/ignorant anger, tirades, DUST, noisy neighbors, malevolence, avocados, labels, cruelty, waking up too early, silly t.v shows, how fake Hollywood always seems no matter what, bashing (other people, yourself, mindlessly), shushing noises, Lady Gaga, rap music (besides Sakurai Sho, of course) xD... And all that bad stuff in the world. I won't go on 'cause there's no reason to list all the bad things. I don't like dwelling in discontent.

I would say I'm a nice person. I typically get along with everyone. I'm not judgmental, and I like to find unique traits in everyone because I think there's always at least one thing in every person that makes them stand out and shine. I like making new friends, although it's sort of difficult for me at times because I don't normally go straight up to people and start conversations. (I used to do that when I was little; I'd go to the park and strike up convos with the kids playing nearby. O.o)
I'm not excessively quiet, nor am I too loud. I say what I think when it's on my mind, or I write it down. It's important to preserve thoughts. Memories can be dangerous but each one has a lesson to teach behind the story. I think that can be said of history and everything that we know has ever happened in life.

(This is why I get pissy with LJ when FireFox crashes on me in the middle of a post. How. frustratingggg.)

I believe strongly in love and justice and hope. I love NEWS, Arashi (and DBSK what they used to be ; ____ ;) because I believe this. They've always been strong within their bands and have trusted in each other and the bonds they have, as friends, as bandmates, as family and as people. Even through the tough times: NEWS' hiatus in 2006, Arashi's juggling so much work (t.v shows, concerts, promos), and more recently, DBSK's lawsuit and suspension of group activities. (Please get back together, please get back together, screw the lawsuit, please get back togetherrrrr..)
These are all hard things to undergo, and it's important to have a strong support behind you. Luckily for these bands, they all have each other and when things get hard and they think of quitting, they don't. I appreciate them all so much - each individual member - because they each make the group what they are. I always feel so happy when I see them together because they emit such a happiness it's tangible. It's beautiful and bright... I think Johnny's Entertainment is all about spreading smiles and laughter and brain damage, one group at a time.

Isn't that what music's all about? :) Spreading brain damage? I hope not 'cause then I'm fried. I was fried the day I gave my soul to Johnny's three years ago...

Well, I think that's all I have to say for anyone to get a glimpse of what I'm like... Hope to make some new friends in JE (or non-JE) fans and create some beautiful friendships! :D

And to conclude~

Minna-san, enjoy these lovely graphics~
To commemorate AnJ, I present JoePi!
As always, scans credit inala . <3

Click to enlarge!






I didn't make them recently; they've been laying there for awhile.. Thought with all the huss and fuss about AnJ, I'd bust 'em out. (There are more, but these are two of my faves)

If you like them, comments are nice. You don't have to credit me or anything - just please don't make icons or banners out of my graphics. That's all. Simple fact is, taking an artist's work and 'artistically mutilating' it really hurts the original maker.. It's the same for graphics as for videos or translations or anything derived from the original thoughts of another person. I've seen it in the fandom, more often than I should, and nobody likes that. Therefore, that's all I ask. My journal, my rules. *hides*

Look forward to meeting you all~ :D

Ja, ne~ <3

**On the subject of graphics, I should say - any and all graphics on this LJ, unless otherwise stated - including banners, icons, bg images, and userpics - were edited by me. I always credit the source if it's available (unless it's an official photograph or material), but if you come across a graphic without a tagline beneath it, it's either because I made it or I don't know (or remember) where I got it from. (If I ever misuse a graphic or anyone would like anything removed that belongs to them, please don't hesitate to tell me so.)

Don't worry about credits with me. I always give credit where credit is due. :D
 
 
Where I am now:: Home.

Re: Hi!!
Hi Mimi, nice to meet you! Thank you for stopping by my LJ; Yamapi's so kakkoi, ne? xD

I'm glad Johnny's has pulled you in, haha. Johnny-san is so evil, ne? Torturing us with beautiful men~ ^_^

Hope we can get to know each other better! I'm adding you back. Enjoy~
nasyirahdiyananasyirayamapi on September 26th, 2010 10:48 am (UTC)
hello! yoroshiku ^^

Im Nasyirah and u can just call me nash(since that's what most people call me) (:
I live in Singapore and im 18 ^^

Well, ive been a yamapi fan for quite some time but im still a newbie at NEWS (hehe).
i love them <3
oh, ive read ur likes catagory and well, seems we share few interests there.

i love anime, and from anime where i started to love japanese songs and dramas and from a drama (Nobuta wo produce to be precise) is when i 'fell' in love with yamapi and from there NEWS :D hahaha!

Hope to know u better! oh, and thanks for adding me back :DD
Lilyspiralyte on September 28th, 2010 12:39 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for stopping by and dozo yoroshiku ne~

It's fun to meet someone with the same interests as you. Don't worry so much about being new to NEWS (haha). If you keep bopping around LJ and the news_jpop comm (and my journal) you'll learn a lot about them F A S T. Number one rule: NEWS are dorks together. (If you've seen Unplugged LIVE, it's a prime example.)

But we still love those awesome cracky-wacky guys. XDD

Hope you're well and God bless ! :)
lil_evilishlil_evilish on October 4th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)
Ole! ^^;

You can call me "Kai", I'm 23, from the Philippines!
I don't look or act my age, so don't call me "onee-chan" or "ate" okay?

I'm not generally active in sharing things, but you can expect me to always be commenting/butting in on stuff! ^^
Since I don't share a lot, you can expect me to keep your downloadable stuff to myself, and if I ever do post it elsewhere, it will be on my personal blog, not for sharing, and I make sure to credit and never "own" it. Most of the time, I simply repost my favorite random/funny/awesomely beautiful pics and exerpts from interviews.

My heart will always belong to NEWS and YamaP, but I also like some Kpop stuff like SNSD, DBSK, Super Junior, SS501, UKiss and Rain (oh my beloved sexy Rain). I like Jin and Kame (but not a huge AKame fan, and yes, they are cute together). I love anime music! And generally happy/danceable/kickass Jpop and Kpop songs.

I admire people like you, who share things for the fandom, they earn my utmost respect, as well as those who credit properly. But bottomline is, I try not to take things too seriously, and enjoy fangirling as it is, flailing and admiring and being inspired--without the mandatory need to be bound by fan groups and bashing and all that fandom politics (^__^)V

Arigatou Lily-chan ^O^
Lily: potatospiralyte on October 4th, 2010 10:00 pm (UTC)
Why hello there! Dozo yoroshiku ne~ Welcome to my LJ~ :D (Nice intro too.) xD

Kai-chan, huh? Nice to meet you~ ♥ I don't call anyone onei-chan nor onei-san, sp no worries. LOL. Reposting to your own blog is fine, as long as it doesn't show up anywhere else.. I trust the fans. I know they don't like sharing when it comes to their scrumptious boys, rofl.

"Fandom politics" LOL. I guess it goes without saying. There must be government in everything! DD: lololol.

Thank you for your comment. You are very kind. :) I don't really do much, just share little things and try to interact with the fans.. I know to some, it doesn't mean anything that they like NEWS, while to others it's their whole world. For me, it's a bit different - in the middle. I understand the reality that I'll probably never meet them, nor see them in person (or anywhere close ; ___ ;), and that my personal life is not of very much importance when NEWS is concerned. (Meaning, from a realistic pov, NEWS = not much.) But I love them with all my heart, and they make my days brighter and my smiles wider, so naturally, I'm a happy, dedicated fan. (They make me broke so I better be considered dedicated!) Lol, just teasing...

Anyways, it's very nice to meet you and I hope we can have lots of long rants on any and every subject you'd like. I don't mind, you can talk about anything~ I'm not really a fan of KAT-TUN (I liked "LOVE YOURSELF" but that was 'cause of Yamato Nadeshiko xD), nor am I much of a Hangeul fan outside of DBSK (or should I say JYJ and Max and U-know to the side? XP) but feel free to educate me. I know the Kpop fandom is growing bigger and flashier each day. :)

Btw, Filipino fans are awesome. ♥ My teacher's from the Philippines! :D

But I love them with all my heart, and they make my days brighter and my smiles wider, so naturally, I'm a happy, dedicated fan. - uwaaa, I can totally relate!

And I love the part wherein you can clearly differentiate being a fan from real life, although sometimes I secretly wish "they" were my reality!

Ah yes, KPop is so popular right now, but trust me, they're incomparable to NEWS! Some of their outfits and performances are really flashy, but nothing ever hits the spot like happy Jpop music does, right? ^^

Ooh ~ Your teacher is Filipino. There's actually a lot of Filipinos everywhere, haha ^^;

Thanks for replying Lily-chan, I'll always be waiting for your posts! ~ m(^3^)m

Lily: purplespiralyte on October 5th, 2010 01:31 am (UTC)
Nice to meet you and welcome to my LJ. ^^ (You can get lost in here, lol!)

Valeria, that's such a pretty name. One of my very good friends' name is Valeria. :)

Romania, huh? Wow.. That must be a very beautiful country. I saw your pictures, so I've seen a bit. (I wish the US was more mountainous and natural like European countries)

32 is not old ! Ohno is only two years younger than you, but I'm SURE he looks much older than you.

Who doesn't like good-looking guys? ;)
leeia2005leeia2005 on October 5th, 2010 01:48 am (UTC)
I had no ideea that Ohno is 30,but he does look kind of old
P.S. I will post some pics from my country soon

Valeria, it's ok to be 32, you're still a fangirl at heart! I can imagine myself still fangirling NEWS/JE boys even when I'm already a granny! Wahaha.
