[artes] Icons . Ouran

Now that I've finally gotten around to changing all of the Ouran icons that I've been using into my new coloring style, I've decided to upload and share them all. I know that the numbering that I have below is a little strange, but it'll make sense after the jump, I promise.

    [+] Fujioka Haruhi (15)
    [+] Suou Tamaki (11)
    [+] Ootori Kyouya (o5)

P.S. My playlist is awesome; just as I was finishing putting this post together, it decided to put on "Shissou." Timing. It's everything.

[artes] Layout . Step To the Beat

And it's time for another new layout! Yay! Or something. This one's the one I'm currently using on my own journal, except with a more universal image over the sidebar. I've purposely placed the stars for that in a manner that will make it easy for you to color over them if you want to put something more specific "peeking" over the sidebar, though (like how my journal has the Hitachiin twins climbing over it). Tips, tricks, and css are all beyond the jump, as always, and if you click on the windowpane preview below, you'll be linked to a full-size preview of the layout (which will show you how it looks with two entries per page and a sticky post; the layout can, of course, take as many entries as you feel like throwing on to the page, but I figured that a ten-entry preview would be overkill).

[artes] Fanfiction . Or Everything That Matters Breaks In Two (1/??)

Or Everything That Matters Breaks In Two
Until the Sun Would Wash the Sky
Author: Josie (artes)
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Hikaru/Kaoru (there will be mentions of Hikaru/Haruhi and Tamaki/Haruhi later)
Genre: Romance, Drama
Warnings: The obvious twincest and sexual situations warnings are there, obviously.
Spoilers: As with In Place of Modesty, if you haven't read from about chapter 45 through to the current chapter of the manga, there'll be spoilers for you.
Disclaimer: Ouran High School Host Club and all of its characters belong to Bisco Hatori; this is just a shameless work that isn't for profit. Also, the story and chapter titles for this will all be references to the song "Another Heart Calls" by the All-American Rejects and the Pierces.
Notes: As the sequel to In Place of Modesty, this was a completely unintentional creation; that said, the intention of this piece is to give a little more insight into the twins' thoughts and feelings, as well as perhaps answer some questions left behind by what was, really, a completely shameless excuse for shower sex (really, I can't put that one any other way no matter how much I think about it). Why have the twins completely disregarded the danger to themselves and their family if the truth is discovered? Why did Hikaru so easily decide to stop pursuing Haruhi? Why was Hunny so supportive, to the extent of even possibly pushing Kaoru towards Hikaru? Well, I'm not positive of if I'll be able to explain all of these perfectly, but I'm hoping to at least try to manage it for all of you, as my way of saying "thank you" for all of the kind words, comments, and reviews that you have given me. I would also like to note that, as opposed to its predecessor, this will likely be a multi-chapter story. As such... I know that this first part isn't exactly the most phenomenal thing ever, but please bear with it. It was the best that I could come up with to lead into the story and set things up. The next chapter should be a little more exciting...
Summary: Confidence in their own ability to keep themselves under wraps can lead the Hitachiin brothers to disaster. What can they do when it seems that everything that matters to them might break apart?
