[Mod] new mod & community future

Hello everyone, nice to meet you! I am the new mod for the comm. I am totally new at this but I don't want this community to be forgotten, so I'll give it a try.

That aside, I have noticed that everyone in lj is freaking out over the fact that lj's servers are now in Russia and their LGBT policy isn't too friendly. For now it has only been a rumor, there are no cases of deleted journals or entries over this. But is better be safe than sorry.

So I am thinking of importing the comm over to Dreamwidth for now (apparently is easier, if anyone has already tried this and can enlighten me, I would be thankful). Just to have a back up of the existing community.

I am actually considering to make a twitter account to post prompts weekly, so people can answer them here. but maybe tumblr is a better choice (?) I am not sure over this, but the fandom seems more active over those two platforms so I want to give it a try to maybe bring the comm back to life.

any thoughts, or suggestions are welcome :)

[Mod] Still here, still seeking a new moderator

I'm no longer active on LiveJournal for personal reason. I won't be around, but I'm not deleting my account because that would orphan the community. If the comm is to be active again, there should be a new moderator. Right now, I don't post challenges because we ran out of prompts. I think there's more fiction activity happening in other comms, on Tumblr, or on other sites these days.

This has been a great community and I've had so much fun here! There are great stories here, and it's been a wonderful, positive experience. ♥ ♥ ♥ I would be thrilled if someone wanted to take over as moderator and revive things. But if not, that's okay - the comm and its history will still be here, at least for now.

My personal journal settings are locked, so I may not be able to get messages. I've set the comments on this post to be screened and I'll get an email if anyone comments. If you're reading this today - or months from now - and want to be a moderator, leave a comment.

Concrit? Sure
Pairing: YunJae
Summary: AU. Jaejoong plans on taking a picture of the man he rides the same train with whenever he goes to school and home. There's noharm in trying, right?
A/N: Hope you'll like it *u*

“So hey, are there any progresses yet?” Jaejoong’s friend, Changmin asked him.

Jaejoong looked at him with creased eyebrows. “What do you mean progresses?”

“Oh come on, don’t pretend like you don’t know what I am talking about.” grunted Changmin.

Junsu faced him, his eyes “Why don’t you take a picture of him so that you can show us what he looks like?”

“Are you freaking kidding me?” asked Jaejoong in a high tone. “I can’t even approach him to talk to him and you’re telling me to take a picture of him. I don’t even know his name.” he frowned.

“Duh! It’s not like you’re going to say, hey I’ll take a picture of you okay?” stated Junsu.

Jaejoong pouted, “I don’t know. Gosh seriously if I’ll be with him again when I got home then I swear he really is my destiny.” he laughed.

“Whatever you say dream boy.” Changmin told him in a teasing tone.

Jaejoong has been having a crush with this boy he always ride the same train whenever he goes at school and on his way home. It has been 3 months since this thing is going on and he’s been dying to know what his name is since they both go on different schools. He always talks with his friends about this and kept on telling them how handsome the man really is.

Meanwhile, his friends keep on pestering him to make the first move so that he’ll know his name already. But Jaejoong told them that he won’t do such thing.

Finally, it was about time to go home already. It was a tiring day for Jaejoong and he wasn’t able to hang out with his friends since he has so much to do and decided to go home early.

And there he saw his crush again on the same train, sitting on the opposite side of the train.

Why can’t I give it a try? Jaejoong thought to himself. There’s no harm in trying anyway.

Gathering up all his courage, Jaejoong took a deep breath and fished his phone out of his pocket. “So, here it goes.” whispered Jaejoong to himself. He positioned his phone on the level of his chest, trying to find the perfect angle to take a picture of the man sitting on the opposite side of the train. He made sure that those people beside him won’t notice that he is trying to take a picture of Yunho. He simply looked at them to see if they’re looking at him. Seeing them that they are looking somewhere else, he took itas a sign that it is already safe to take a picture. Jaejoong made it look like he's just texting someone.

As he was about to press the button to capture an image, he suddenly remembered something important. “Oh shoot I forgot to turn off the camera sounds.” gasped Jaejoong, before turning off the said sounds. “Okay, here it goes for real.”

Little did he know, he forgot something else. And probably, it is important as well. The moment he pressed the button, a flash illuminated inside the train. The flash. He forgot to turn the flash off. Jaejoong bit his lower lip in extreme humiliation he was feeling at the moment.

Yunho noticed it of course. He lowered his head in embarrassment.

Jaejoong felt like something flashed in front of him the moment he took a picture of Yunho, and he just realized that the man he is trying to take a picture just did the same too.

Yunho just took a picture of Jaejoong also!

People inside eyed them both suspiciously and they were chuckling as well.

The train pulled in their next station, which is their stop. They both stood up and head their way towards the door.

As they both got out of the train, they faced each other with both of their heads lowered, fidgeting the straps of their bags. Yunho lifts his head up and reached for his hand to Jaejoong for a handshake and the latter did the same. “Hi. I’m Jung Yunho.”

“Jaejoong.” he smiled, his cheeks flushed red. “Kim Jaejoong.”
