Arrow Meets Supernatural (Par 1/?)

Or as I would like to call it, "The fanfiction that's been lost for centuries and never saw the light of day." LOL!

I actually just stumbled upon this while sifting through my horribly messy files and thought "Hey! Now might be a good time to post this because I so don't want this harboring virtual cobwebs (since I wrote this a year ago) in my HD." And so here it is! VIOLA! not that It's awesome but yeah~ (you get the point XP).

Summary: Olliver is gone but Starling City still needs saving. Having their hands full with the Starling City Slayer, finding Olliver (or what remains of him), and keeping Malcom Merlin in check, Team Arrow encounters a whole new kind of supernatural trouble along with the two newcomers in town. Are they the cause of all the mystical events happening in Starling City or are they the key to saving the diseased town from dying?

Forgive and have mercy upon him...Collapse )

I'm not planning on continuing this fic since the season 3 of Arrow is already over (like months ago). But for all its worth, please do leave some feedback. Tell me what you think about this or if it seems interesting or just you know, leave some constructive criticisms and tips for me. It will be very much appreciated. :)

Reminder to myself

"With the days that just pass before your eyes
Change them and head to the future you dreamed of.
If you could take a single step, the scenery will change.
Happiness is surely in my hands."

"The present days are still full of regrets.
Overcome them as clumsily as you are.
That's right, tomorrow, the wind will blow differently from today, won't it.
Everything is definitely in my hands"

You'll never know what will happen in your life. You'll never know what obstacle you might face. But surely, the days will not stay the same. As long as you'll keep on walking... As long as you keep trying to change... The World will be reborn everyday.
Probably, with just one change of your feelings.

These are the words that keep on reminding me, in times of frustrations and in the face of so many failures, something good will be waiting for me just around the corner. Past the hardships and defeat, the strong winds and raging storms, there will always be a rainbow at the end of my every journey. I just have to keep on going, keep on changing, keep on believing, never giving up, never giving in, staying strong and having fun in every step of the way. No matter how many detours I have to take, no matter how dark the road may be, I will never stop. By shaping my future with my own hands, making my own path, I will definitely arrive at that place.

Shiawase wo...kitto...boku no te no naka ni!

How I Met Your Mother: "Last Forever"

The episode that concluded Ted's search for the mother in HIMYM has finally come to an end. I just watched the finale and it was only an okay for me. Somehow, I got the feeling that they were going to do that from the moment it was rumored that the mother was already dead. I mean, it's okay to kill off the mother, but to have Ted end up with Robin (again) after the mother died (6 years ago) is plain stupidity. They should know (as writers) where their story is heading to from the way it was developed, even though everything wasn't exactly as planned. They should feel what the audience feels and that to them, the perfect ending to this 9-year fairytale (Yes. FAIRYTALE. It wasn't supposed to be one but it developed like that anyway) is also a semi-disney-feel, and-they-lived-happily-ever-after ending. As the title of the finale "Last Forever" suggests, their love should last forever even after Tracy McConnell died. And not "6 years have past. go off and hook up with Robin again"--ever after. They're good writers, nonetheless (for having thought of circling to where it all began for Ted and Robin). It's just that... the dream died right there when the daughter said "It's been 6 years since mom died. Call Aunt Robin and date her!" Right there, when Ted picked up the phone and chickened out (although as it turned out, Ted just had a great idea that's why he didn't make the call), I seriously hoped he would say "You know what? Maybe you're right. Maybe it's time I moved on. It's just that... you're mom is the only one for me and I for her. No matter what happens, that certain fact will never change. Not then, not ever. Even if... Even if you say it's been years that she's gone and that your Aunt Robin, the girl that I've chased during my late 20s and early 30s, happens to still be single, it wouldn't matter. It wouldn't make me go all the way to New York City, steal the blue french horn for her for the third or maybe fourth time, and stand in front of her apartment building until she sees me from her window, waiting... waiting all these years to be in this moment again, to be back to square one. Just... waiting. Waiting for her to be ready. Because all this time, all these years of waiting, I realized, I was really waiting for your mom. Your mom is the best thing that's ever happened to me. Your mother is and will always be... the one." -----aaaand CUT! Series finale finished. Most legendary episode for the most legendary series ever... DONE!

It's not that I'm against Ted and Robin being together. I personally root for them because I just loved how well established their characters are and how their relationship and feelings (especially Ted) went on (and off) for 9 seasons. It's just that, the way that they ended up together wasn't satisfying at all. Even for me, who secretly almost always ships them because of their chemistry. From the minute that Ted let go of Robin from an episode in season 9 (when super-drunk Barney ran off and Ted was in the beach with Robin and Robin flew away, signaling that Ted already moved on) they should have also let go of twisting the story and trying to pass it up as a Ted-and-Robin-ever-after. That was the last straw. That was the point of no return. And even after that, when Ted wanted Barney to give the significant locket to Robin, they should have never thought of the two as a potential couple again. Because then, they made the mother look like 'just another girl that Ted dated.' It just doesn't feel right. It's like a betrayal from the very title that the series was going for. It's just..... disappointing.

La Tormenta @ Arafes

Finally! I was able to upload this! XD

A time of goodbyes

March, the time we all know as the month of goodbyes and moving ons. Though I had experienced saying a lot of goodbyes every time this month passes by, having 'graduation goggles' and sympathizing to my grade school and high school friends about how much we will miss each other, I'm ashamed to say that I've never really, genuinely felt sad about it. I admit, it does make me sound like a hypocrite. But now, this March of 2013, I can honestly say that I finally know how much it hurts to say goodbye. It really is a hard thing to do, but it's part of life. Besides, there won't be a new beginning without an ending. And therefore, goodbyes are necessary for us to open a new chapter in our life and move on.

I just realized this when I actually started saying goodbye to the people I grew close with and the things that already became a part of my life. With the ending of the second semester of the second year of our college life comes the realization that we are already moving on to the next chapter of our lives. As I look back on the things I have done this past semester, it made me feel like I've been running non-stop, accomplishing a lot of things and yet, failing in some, staying up late at night stressing about projects and requirements, but still having the time to get a good laugh about everything, be it good or bad. Though I am very much relieved to say goodbye to all the negative stuff, it's still a little hard for me to leave the times when all we did was just laugh at the hardships we kept going through. Somehow, it just became a part of me that I will never forget.

Another thing that I found hard to say goodbye to and feel genuinely sad about its ending is the show Himitsu no Arashi-chan. Though I only knew its existence for a year, watching some of its older episodes and following the current ones made me feel like I've been watching it all my life. I had second thoughts about watching the final episode because the fact that it's already ending was still very surreal for me. However, listening to the member's messages, seeing them return the keys and watching Ohno turn off the lights and close the door of the Sharehouse made me wake up to the reality that one of the first Arashi show I knew and loved was really ending. Seeing its transitions within the span of 5 years being on air, I could honestly say that Himitsu no Arashi-chan is a great show, a show which is hard to say goodbye to. I really felt like crying as I kept watching the ending credits, but somehow, my tears just won't come out. Thank goodness! Because I really don't want to cry before I sleep as it would result in the swelling of my eyes when I wake up in the morning. But there's no doubt in my heart and mind that I will surely miss this show.

 Probably, the 23rd of March 2013 is the saddest day I've ever had this year. It was the day that my first ever Japanese friends went back to Japan. We've only been together for one semester, but after sharing interests and a lot of moments with them, they really grew on me and we became a part of each other's lives. We don't have any classes anymore at the time of their departure, but my friend and I still went to our school just to say our goodbyes to them and see them off. I never planned to shed one tear on that day because I want them to leave with smiles on their faces. But as their service came, I came to them and said, "Mata ne~" I didn't say 'Sayonara' because it would be too sad and it would also mean not seeing them again.

"Mata ne! We'll surely see each other again." I said to them, smiling. Then, all of a sudden, Anna-chan started crying. Panic-stricken, I said, "Wha-- Why are you crying? Please, don't cry." and patted her shoulder.  Before I knew it, tears started falling from my eyes, but I still kept on telling her not to cry. We both cried together and hugged each other. It was funny because we both looked like idiots. But really, what I felt that time was genuine sadness. And seeing their service drove away from us as we waved goodbye to each other, it left an impact in me. It was the reality that I won't be seeing them for a long while. But I promised them that if I ever visit Japan, I will be sure to contact them and visit them at Narra.

I just wish that I could go to Japan as soon as possible...


I know it's still hours before Christmas but hey! I might end up forgetting to post a greeting here. Making sure that wouldn't happen, I'm going to post it in advance! ^___^
