Title: The Long Road from "Goodbye"
Fandom: L'Arc~en~Ciel
Pairing: Tetsuya/Ayana
Prompt: 30 Kisses #20: the road home
Rating: G.
Words: 1215
Summary: It has been months since Ayana moved out, as her career had forced her to change locations. She promised it was a temporary endeavor, but Tetsuya still cannot get over the goodbye. What if that had just been an excuse to shelter his feelings? Pre-marriage Tetsuya/Ayana; song!fic with "Bye Bye".
Author's Note: I wrote this one a while ago, actually-- it was the second one I ever wrote for this challenge. To be honest, I thought it was awful at first... ^^U But, I worked with it and revised some things, and now I don't think it's half bad. It was largely inspired by "Bye Bye", and it seemed fitting to include some of those lyrics in there.
Lyrics translation credit goes to mellifluous words; I did revise a couple of things here and there so they made more sense. ^^b Nothin' big though.

There ya go~ \(^-^)/ Tell me, what do you think of this challenge so far? Comments & feedback are love~

Look-- a new world is waiting for you. (don't cry) Don't hang your head low.Collapse )

Title: L'Amour Fictif
Fandom: L'Arc~en~Ciel
Pairing: Tetsuya/Ayana
Prompt: 30 Kisses #5: "ano sa..." ("hey, you know...")
Rating: PG.
Warning(s): none~
Words: 767
Summary: Tetsuya never put much stock in love stories. Who were they to tell him what love should be like, anyways?
Author's Note: It's a double-post day! \(^-^)/ Had the idea for this one while taking exams. I'm not entirely sure why. But, I wrote it in about 20 minutes-ish, and I rather like it. It's a fluffy one, for once! ^^ This will be my fourth for the 30kisses challenge. <3
(fyi: the title about translates to "fictitious love")

Enjoy! \(^-^)/ Comments & feedback make this author feel like she isn't talking to herself. Very much appreciated~!

There were certainly things he would much rather do with Ayana than sit there an arm's distance apart, trying to drown himself in the depths of her brown eyes. The whole idea was quite undesirable, not to mention awkward.Collapse )

Title: A Love that Doesn't Hurt
Fandom: L'Arc~en~Ciel
Pairing: Tetsuya/Ayana
Prompt: 30 Kisses #21: Violence
Rating: PG.
Warning(s): internal conflict & angsting
Words: 1102
Summary: Tetsuya has never been in love quite this way before-- never to the point that he feared the feeling. It is impossibly powerful and all-encompassing. Then, he is afraid of getting hurt; after all, that's all love has ever led to in the past, isn't it?
Author's Note: This will be 3/30 for the 30kisses challenge-- I'm 1/10 of the way there! ^^ I wrote this one yesterday and it turned out better than I thought it would. It was basically a giant outpouring of FEELINGS that this author has. But, at the same time, I think it's pretty heartwarming.

So yeah! Hope you like! \(^-^)/ Comments & feedback are greatly appreciated. <3

It was a ferocious force, an unyielding drive that refused to submit to his will. He could feel his heart hurting and his legs growing weaker and the pain and the longing and everything--Collapse )

Title: Memories in Red
Fandom: L'Arc~en~Ciel
Pairing: Tetsuya/Ayana
Prompt: 30 kisses #19: red
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): implied sex (very much implied, nothing described)
Words: 679
Summary: Maybe he would forget what she wore that evening. Perhaps he would forget the name of the movie they watched, sitting on the couch in his living room. These memories would be fleeting at best, but he would never forget the way she smiled, or that her lipstick was red.
Author's Note: Another one for the 30kisses challenge! This is the most scandalous fic I've ever posted~ >w< lol Yeah, this is about as exciting as I get, people. ^^b Nonetheless, it was incredibly fun to write, and I really like how it turned out.

\(^-^)/ Hope you enjoy! Comments & feedback are very much appreciated! Even if it's just to tell me you read it, that makes me very happy~

Ah, he would always remember the color red, for it was the color of her smile in the late-evening light.Collapse )

Title: our distance and that person
Fandom: L'Arc~en~Ciel
Pairing: Tetsuya/Ayana {1st person- Tetsuya's POV}
Prompt: 30 kisses #4: our distance and that person
Rating: PG
Warning(s): internal character conflict, angst, mildly dark
Words: 1384
Summary: Tetsuya struggles with the growing distance forming between himself and Ayana. There is someone trying to pull him away from her, second-guessing what he believes is most important in life-- his career or his marriage.
Author's Note: I literally wrote this in twenty minutes, and yet it ended up being far longer than I thought it would! This will be my first entry for the 30kisses prompt challenge~ As soon as I saw the prompt phrase, this entire story just popped into my brain. Also, this may be the first first-person fic I've written. Wow. Usually I'm very bad at it, but I think it was necessary for this one.

Enjoy~! \(^-^)/ Comments & feedback make this author very happy~! Even if it's just "I read it", that's good enough for me!

I hate that man. I hate him with the same intensity with which I love you. Perhaps because these two things are in such direct disagreement?Collapse )

It's official... I'm taking up the 30 Kisses writing challenge! \(^-^)/
I was obsessively searching LJ for Hyde/Megumi fics, and I found that the fabulous bloodied_quill had written a bunch for this challenge. So I've been thinking and thinking... I've finally decided to do it. :3
I've been feeling stressed-out lately, and writing never fails to make me feel better. This seemed like some nice inspiration. Plus, it gives me an excuse to write a bunch of fic for my OTP~ <3

All of these fics are for the pairing Tetsuya/Ayana. Comments are greatly appreciated!

list hereCollapse )

Thank you so much to all of you who have commented on my fic. It truly means the world to me. If it weren't for you, I would probably be doing more productive things other than writing, and I would be very very unhappy. ^^

Will be updated periodically as I get more done!

Happy reading! Wasshoi~

Hello hello!

I have a new set of icons to share today, as lately I've had the pleasure of acquiring many new pictures of these L'ovely boys. <3 This set includes more from the Butterfly promo photoshoots, a few from the World Tour booklet, the Tetsuya article in BASS magazine, and a few older pictures as well.

Many of these are in the minimalist style again, since that was well-received last time- I stepped up the editing just a little, though I don't think it's too overbearing. It's still subtle, you know~ ^^ On a few of them, I did more artistic stuff, though again not as much as usual-- I included those at the end, and their less-edited doubles within the set.

✰ hyde
✰ ken
✰ yukihiro

I warned it was tetsu-centric, what can I say >w<

Rules are the usual!
✰ These icons are not to be used as bases.
✰ Feel free to kidnap any and all that you like! If you use them, please credit me, [info]marieciel. A lot of work went into making these, so please do not steal them
✰ Do comment and let me know if you like them! Feedback makes this girl very happy~ ^^

L'ove hiding under the cut!Collapse )

Title: Beautiful Mystery
Fandom: L'Arc~en~Ciel
Pairing: Ken/Tetsuya (can be interpreted as romantic or platonic)
Rating: PG.
Warning(s): mild language, nothin' serious~
Words: 1668
Summary: There were many moments when Ken knew he loved Tetsuya-- this is a collection of merely a few. All along, starting from when the band first formed and the bassist was a mystery, when he occupied a futon on Ken's floor, when he finally stopped grinding his teeth in his sleep, when they speculated the relative accuracy of fanfiction, and when he ate chocolate... Ken loved Tetsuya all of these times, and many more.
Or, more simply: Ken and Tetsuya being friends and doing cute friend things.
Author's Note: An alternative interpretation of their relationship to "Best"-- I tend to think of them as having a mix of the two: knowing each other better than anyone else, and loving each other while not being romantically involved, in the way best friends do. This was a joy to write, really... <3 If I had to pair up any two members of L'Arc, I have to say I would pair up these two. They are the best of friends, and that is just too sweet~ ^^ Ah, and the pokes at fanfiction was just too tempting to resist... gotta make fun of yourself, you know! And I'm sure the boys come across it from time to time... wonder what they think~? ^^
Hope you enjoy!

"No matter what they say, a relationship of that sort between us would never work; I love you too much already."Collapse )

Hello everyone~

I've now listened to the English versions of "Chase" and "XXX"-- now I actually understand (better) what they mean! :D Well, some bits are still a little fuzzy but yeah! Getting there~!

I have attempted to transcribe the English lyrics of both songs. Bear in mind that I have done so BY EAR, and not everything is perfectly clear so there WILL BE mistakes/missed bits.
Now confirmed with scans, and I've fixed up the lyrics. ^^ I'm actually really surprised at how close I was at some parts... and others where I was sure I was right, I was not! :O

Updated now with video! \(^-^)/
It's the English versions, transposed over the PVs.


CHASECollapse )


Hope you have a L'ovely day~
