Hello lovely (possible) participants!

We have opened the sign-ups for this year's arashi-exchange. To be on the safe side (we won't want this journal suddenly being deleted while we are posting ><), we'll hold the exchange on DW. However, you can also join this exchange if you only have a Lj account (and no DW account). We've enabled anon.comments on our sign-up post, so feel free to sign-up there. All you have to do is write your Lj-name and account into the sign-up.

Follow this link for the Sign-up post!

Hello lovely, potential future arashi-exchange participants, readers and followers of this community,

as you might know the time comes closer again to the start of this exchange. We normally open up our sign-ups around the middle of May, and have them open until ninoexchange's deadline (so that no one needs to feel pressured or stressed).

However, as you know, LJ faces issues. I've recently also read a post at arashirabu about accounts getting suspended out of the blue. I don't want to risk that tbh.

I've made a back-up of this community on Dreamwidth a while ago. Same name, same content :D
Here it is: arashi-exchange.

My question is: What will we do now? I feel like posting the fics on DW would be saver than posting them here. But how about sign-ups? Do you prefer sign-ups on Lj and posting on DW (like ninoexchange does it) or should we go fully DW?

I really would like to know your opinion! So please tell me what you think ♥

Hello lovely participants!

I'm sorry I couldn't drop you a line yesterday, but unfortunately my internet connection was bitching at me ><  However, as you might have noticed:

(In the unfortunate case that I forgot your fic, please drop me a line ASAP!)

And don't we have awesome fics this year again!? We have! All of you did such a good job, and the fics are just GREAT! So, thanks to all of you who participated and wrote a fic or participated as readers. Also a big thank you to our beta-readers (names to be mentioned in the reveal post next week)

Please - in case you haven't read your fics yet - read your gift fics and don't forget to drop a comment for your author. Reveals will be in around a week (or a little earlier, depending on my work schedule)

See you in a few days! Until then, please still hold anonymity :D

A piece of rainbow for akhikaru Part 1

Title: Billowing Sails of Black, freedom is Mine
Pairing: Matsumoto Jun/Sakurai Sho
Rating/Warnings:  NC-17. Contains explicit sexual situations, mild violence and blood and plenty of swearing.
Summary: For years, Navy Captain Sakurai Sho has proudly commanded the course of the cargo ship, The Daylight, across the Asian Pacific, so when the stunning captain of a certain pirate ship offers him another life, Sho comes to question the difference between reality and illusion, leaving him confused as to what he really wants.
Notes: Dear akhikaru, I do not know how many of your requests I fulfilled with this one, but I really do hope you like it nevertheless. I really enjoyed writing this Pirate AU – though you did not ask for such a thing specifically – despite it becoming a lot longer than I had first anticipated.</p>
