Welcome to Storm Freaks!  
Calling all Arashi fans!!!

Join us in the discussion and have wacky, Arashi fun!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Storm Freaks will still operate out of LiveJournal until the 1st of July 2017!

Why was this comm made?
We want a place to share and chat about Arashi, and have fun, light hearted discussions with other fans. Recently more and more fans are moving away from LJ, to twitter, tumblr etc... While those sites are nice, we still prefer LJ because it allows more interaction between fans. Hence, this community was born! We hope to make LJ and this community a lively place for Arashi fans once again.

Please help us make this a reality! Invite your friends to join this community, and take part in the discussions, games and events!!!

I go by Isabelle online, and am a former political philosopher lecturer. I'm not comfortably stating anything else.

My favourite vacillates between Ohno and Nino, depending on their current projects. For present purposes, they are tied at the moment.

I have two favourite pairings, that of Ohno and Nino (they're always doing things in the background), and Nino and Jun (entirely legitimate scheming and plotting).

I'm joining because it's hard to find news on Arashi and I hate tumblr/twitter for deeply personal and professional reasons, and am not there. So this is the best way for me to read any news related to Arashi.

Hello, pknumba1 here from the US. My ichiban is Sho. My favorite pairing is Sakumoto, but I also like Juntoshi, Sakumiya, Matsumiya, and the Tennen Pair. I look forward to future games and news from this comm, pretty much like it is in LJ. I hope I can still have time to participate in the games. I look forward to seeing you guys active here!

Hi there, I'm Hika from Indonesia :D
My ichiban is Nino! (yes, that bratty sarcastic but loveable oji-san XD)
It's kinda hard to believe that he's turning 34 this year (and riida turning 37), arashi are a bunch of oji-santachi... but I love them :") AHAHA
I don't have a pairing, because I love them all, it's hard lol
I want to join this community because I was a member too in LJ, I hope to be able to make more arashian friends and can chit-chat about arashi with other arashian in this comm :D

That's all, yoroshikuu~

Favorite pairing is Sho/Jun
Hoping to see more games :D :D :D

Hello. I'm Jenny from Philippines. Been an Arashi fan since late 2014 (late to the party but never late than never~)

My ichiban is the cutest, most talented, stubborn, weird, wonderful old man Ohno Satoshi. Isn't he just perfectly imperfect and just wonderful???!!!

I am a Sakumoto trash. Yes, it doesn't make sense but yes, Sakumoto is my OTP. It is not a ship actually... more like a submarine. Coz most of the shipping happens in Sakumoto shipper's head. It's so rare to see an actual "shipping" going on between the real life Jun and Sho. So it is very easy to please Sakumoto shippers, because it's so rare. One look and we go "kyaaaaa". They mention the other's name and we go "kyuuuun". They only have one inch between them and it's already a miracle. But I like all pairing. They are all precious and wonderful and full of sunshine (except Sakumoto, really).

Already a member in LJ and I have met a lot of wonderful people and fellow Arashians because of SF. The mods are weird but fun (please don't kill me). And there are Arashi news, and random games and random questions and random discussions. All Arashi related of course. There's also the occasional gossip.

So yay!
coolohoh[personal profile] coolohoh on April 14th, 2017 03:51 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! Weird but fun. I think that describes us perfectly! XD
kittykaty[personal profile] kittykaty on April 14th, 2017 03:42 pm (UTC)
Hi girls,

this is Kate/former silver_crystall on LJ. As you might remember I am from Germany...

My ichiban is Aiba but Jun is veeeery close!
Therefore, I like AibaxJun pairing, but I also love JunToshi. SakuMiya is appreciated as well XD

I just hope to find people to talk to about Arashi. After all this moving to dw I fear that I will loos track of some friends I made there. Other than that, I simply hope to catch up on some Arashi news and flail with you^^

Hope to talk to you soonish!

Kate
coolohoh[personal profile] coolohoh on April 14th, 2017 03:54 pm (UTC)
Yes I remember where you're from XD

Oh speaking of losing track of friends... are we friends on DW yet? *goes to check*

Hi minna !!

I'm Hiba from Algeria in my twenties , an Arashi fan since 2013 :")
I don't have an ichiban xD , i just can't pick one , i love them all : my rainbow !
My favourite pairings : i love all the pairings honestly xD their friendship and brotherhood is a treasure but Ohmiya , Ninoai , Sakumoto ( bcz of last year xD ) are somehow more special !
What i want to see in this community is : sharing the news and reviews and discussing them with arashians from all over the world !! it would be also great to do some quizzes and games ! i think it's the description of this community xD well i just want to enjoy my arashian world , spreading love and happiness here :") ! (although I'm not that free this time , i'm so busy with my studies so i can't promise to be active so much , but i'll do my best :") !
I was a previous member ( Hibara95@lj )
thank you for moving here , wish you the best of luck <3 !!
