Emergency! We need therapy STAT!

This is slowly turning into stuff about my own life but every one knows all the Arashi news before I do anyway. At least this stuff is Arashi related?

Shall set the scene for you: Am chilling with one of my friends (she is a fan, hasn't reached fangirl level yet) and we are talking about various things, usually J-dramas we've seen or various celeb guys we find attractive. The conversation shifts to Arashi as it often does and I tell her about their new album, what they've been up to, etc.

And that's when it happens.

Out of nowhere she suddenly says...

"...I'm a bit over Arashi."


Nothing can be heard over the sounds of my brain dying, sirens wailing and alarms sounding. Panic sets in and I attempt to sort out my thoughts in the wake of this shocking news.

"What? H-how is this possible?"

And then it occurs to me that although we became acquainted with Arashi at the same time, she wasn't fortunate enough to meet super awesome people to help fuel the obsession. SHE DOESN'T KNOW THEM.

"H-have you seen their shows?" In a desperate attempt to save a dying potential-fangirl, I cling onto the hope that she has in fact seen them, despite me making no effort to help with this (yes, I am ashamed).


In one word I could see salvation and I swore to myself that I would fill her HD (which I borrowed from her) with EVERYTHING. I wasn't going to give her a bit at a time to slowly ease her into it, thus avoiding some of the more extreme things Arashi do that non-fangirls wouldn't understand. It was too late for that and more drastic measures were needed. In psychological terms this is known as flooding, although it's used as a way to combat phobias.

I know this is going to take a long time (the transferring of all the files alone will take hours) but I am sure it will be a worthy quest and I shall be brave, valiant and slightly crazy throughout. Will let you know how it pans out :p

Once I start talking I sometimes can't stop >.< Hope you aren't brain-dead after reading that! v(^.^)

Over arashi?

I am so proud of you, my grasshopper :D

I really wonder how she'll react to the amount of crazy that is now on (or still transferring onto) the HD. I havent really inducted anyone by chucking them in the deep end (I haven't really inducted anyone but you, really) so let me know how it goes :) I remember being so careful when i started giving you stuff- I still remember typing up a little arashi shows guide all those years ago *fondly remembers*

That was exactly my reaction but with more brain hemorrhaging :(

I am actually still strategising how to actually transfer it all. Transferring stuff from hers took FOREVER and I have about 500gb to give her :/ Thankfully she doesn't want it until mid-year break; too much distraction otherwise :p

I do worry about this sudden avalanche of stuff she is going to get (plus Ohmiya, I worry about them for others) and I do plan on writing up a detailed description of what is on there otherwise she will just get lost :( And speaking of: I actually read the first guide you wrote me the other day. It's kinda interesting now that I know what all the shows are. Good times :) Will keep you updated for sure.

Oh P.S. did you get that pic I sent to you on your phone? Wasn't sure if it went through...
