I'll post a proper update soon, but for now this is a plea to the folks on my friendslist who live in or know someone in the U.S.A.:


I volunteer with a high school foreign exchange organization called AFS.  I have studied abroad and hosted a student through this program, and both experiences were life-changing.  Through these experiences, I have learned so much about myself, my family, my culture, and other cultures around the world.


At this point in time, we are still looking for U.S. host families for around 300 international students.  Any students that are not assigned to families by August 31 will not be allowed to come to the U.S. to study abroad, an experience many have been planning and looking forward to for years.  These students will be left wondering if something is wrong with them or their home country that has made them unplaceable, as well as be forced to explain to their family and friends why they must stay at home.



Please talk to your families, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, etc. about hosting an exchange student.  Even if a family can only commit to a few weeks, this will help tremendously.  You can find more information and the application here: http://www.afsusa.org/host-family/.

Title: A million bright ambassadors of morning
Rating: G
Summary: Yamamoto experiences his first morning in Gokudera’s apartment.
A/N: So gay and fluffy that my eyes are bleeding cotton candy. Title comes from ‘Echoes’ by Pink Floyd.

There was a tree in front of Gokudera’s apartment building. )




Title: Angles and curves
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, femmeslash sexytimes
Summary: Gokudera suddenly feels inadequate now that she knows what Yamamoto looks like under her clothes.
A/N: For this prompt from the kink meme: Any girl/femYamamoto - Because girlMoto would be sweet and adorable and stupid and come on, how can anyone resist? <--CERTAINLY NOT I.


Gokudera doesn’t know what exactly she had been expecting, but surely not this. )




Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes!  Now, I'm going to go to the bar and celebrate the beginning of spring break before I have to drive home tomorrow morning.  )o)


Also, I'll be sure to keep everyone affected by that horrible earthquake in Japan in my thoughts! ;__;
