Saitou answered dutifully when asked how to spell “asshole,” “bastard,” “arrogant,” and “antennae,” but when Sano announced he was writing a romance novel about him, Saitou took the paper away.

Hey, what’s up? I still exist apart from Confrérie, I promise. Here’s the deal: the new job is fucking exhausting. I am so dead tired when I get home I can barely think. We’re only open four days a week, so every weekend is three days long, and it takes that full space of time (including twelve-to-thirteen-hour spans of rest every night) to recover. I try to pack as much artistic productivity into those three days as I possibly can, and this tends to steal any time I have for things like writing journal entries.

So why this entry today? I’ll tell you. First, I’m getting more and more accustomed to the workload and less and less zombie-like after work every day, so at some point I have to get back to documenting life as it happens. Second, and more importantly, Saaaiiitooouuu and Saaaaaanooooo.

Lately I’ve been thinking about steps I could possibly take to advertise a little. Most options I thought of were the kind that would take up way too much of the time I already don’t have a lot of for writing fic rather than promoting it, but I did think it might be a little useful to finally get around to signing up for AO3 and posting a couple of things there. So today, despite my loathing of having stories in multiple places online, I did that. AND THEN.

Anyone that’s never clung to a dead fandom has no idea how it feels to go months and even years without anything new appearing for a beloved pairing or other fandom concept, so let me tell you: IT FEELS BAD. Seriously, there are days I want to cry because I miss Saitou and Sano so much. And you can only get so high off your own merchandise, you know?

But today! When I was looking around AO3 where I’d just made an account! I found a story about Saitou and Sano I had never read before!!!!! And I… I don’t even have words for how happy it made me, and how much better my day (and my weekend) is because of it. I’m ecstatic. I’m about to go to bed in preparation for another week of work, and I am fully braced and ready because I read this story. SO HAPPY! And I thought I should share that in my journal.

In case anyone’s curious, the lovely fic I read is located here and the parts about Saitou and Sano are 3, 5, 7, and 8.

In conclusion, to celebrate appropriately, this picture I once drew:

  1. Fics can work like that for me too. Actually, this is a good opportunity to thank you… Last year was really trying and your writing was one of the few things that could truly boost my mood and help me soldier through. I’m VERY grateful for that!!! <3 <3 <3
    I hope you'll get used to this new routine really fast and that other SaiSa fics will show up for you… (who knows… hopefully the next movie will have enough material to resurrect the fandom a little… ^__^)

    1. Aww, you’re so welcome! I’m so glad I could make anythings better ^__^

      Also? OTHER SAISA FIC DID SHOW UP. I’m freaking about to make another post right now.
