day 18 - Fave OTP or Member-Ai moment
My favorite pairing is Sakumoto, obviously :) As for fave OTP moment? Well, this is a little unfair. There are so few member-ai moments to choose between these two :p (I— I’m not including Jr. Days..)
I can’t help but weep every time I see this. It’s as intimate as Sakumoto can get. Like what I said when I first posted the gif, Jun came from across the room, there were three members there, but for some reason he chose to feed Sho. When has that ever happened before (post early Arashi days)? “IS THIS REAL LIFE?!”
And when I watch this I can’t help but notice that the small amount of Sakumoto shippers on the audience did squeal too XD
You know what’s kind of sad? I was browsing all of my Sakumoto posts and noticed this:
In the good old days, Sho would have to push Jun aside as he would get too close and annoying, but nowadays, Jun had to be pushed into Sho, while Sho sort of awkwardly backed away.
At first I started noticing them as a pair because I found them to be the most attractive in Arashi. I thought “that’s such a shame they’re never put together! they’d be the hawt combi!1! nosebleed!!” but then as I got into them more, it only became more obvious that they’re hardly ever together! They’ve never even paired up for Kodomo no Bangohan!! T_____T Ever since then I started keeping my eyes out on these two and watch for any kind of interactions. Before I knew it, they became my fascination. Even though Jun was my “least” favorite of the 5, I’ve always adored Sakumoto.
Yes, I notice everything they do. Whenever Arashi succeeds in games and go around giving everyone a high 5, I’d smile like mad when it comes to Sho and Jun. Conversely, I’d die a little when the camera cut their parts.
Sakumoto shippers do pay attention to details, otherwise you’d miss everything! And we may read too much into everything, but that’s just because the reality that is Sakumoto hurts sometimes XD; I don’t need them to make out and get romantic (I’m actually not into that >_<) but I just want more BROmance, like a Sakuraiba kind of relationship. High fives and HUGS all around! That’s not too much to ask is it?? I am so glad though that they are having more and more interactions.
That’s okay, we’ll get there. To that hug.
Anyway, this is all kind of unnecessary (and LOOONG) and isn’t part of the challenge XDD But I just tend to go on and ramble when it comes to my OTP <3
