PostSubject: [Ongoing] Carnival Night (AibaxOC) 02/?? Chapters   Wed Dec 03, 2008 6:40 pm


Title: CARNIVAL NIGHT
Author: apostropheTHIS
Summary: After the masks come off, author Natalie tries to find the one who whisked her off her feet at the premiere of her movie. Follow her on her way as she finds out that love isn't as easy as it is in the stories she writes.
Rating: PG-13/R
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Notes: I know some people add the romaji for the Japanese words if they use them, but we're going to pretend that someone has pushed a huge SAP button and everything is in English. If you've watched Nodame Cantabile, they kind of did that for the SP. XD I might add it for some effect later on but then again, I might not. It's only the first chapter! And also, the chapter names are the songs that are currently playing. Haha. Gotta love the music that sets the mood! It's an AibaxOC fic, but you might see a little ShoxOC and OhnoxOC without it being to Mary Sue-ish.

Obviously I don't own anything that deals with Arashi or JE. I own my original character.

Chapter 1 - The Bubble

Natalie was fidgeting nervously with her gloves as she peered at all the costumed people through her mask. It looked as though the function was going to be a success, the reporters were out in the front taking pictures and asking questions to the celebrities before they entered the main hall where they had to be in masks the entire time. When she was asked to think of a theme for the release party, she had wanted it to return to the story, Notte de Carnivale. It was the mystery of meeting someone based on who they are instead of what they look like that made the theme stick out more to her.

"Natalie, I believe we have to head towards the front to do a quick conference with all the reporters." Ken, her publicist held his arm up, she gently placed her own on top as they walked down the stairs.
"Ken, there's a lot of people here already. I'm not gonna lie...I'm pretty nervous." she breathed as she looked up at him with a nervous smile. Ken laughed a bit and nodded towards the stage on the far left-hand side of the room.
"You-know-who is going to perform to open the gala up, who knew that your book would bring such a variety of entertainment to my country." Natalie hid a smile and pretended to shrug but laughed anyways.

All the main news stations and big newspapers in Japan were waiting to ambush her with questions. As she passed guests, they turned to stare at her through their own masks. The dress code had been very strict, the men could only wear black suits with ties and the women could wear any color dress but gold. Gold was the one color that was reserved for the female cast and crew, to be able to pick them out of the crowd. Natalie was the only one wearing a solid gold dress though, all the other cast and crew were wearing black with gold. She was the only one that stood out---besides the color, her dress was not that revealing nor did it have a plunging neckline as others around her did, but it hugged her body in all the right places. Natalie felt naked.

Halfway to the entrance, she saw that the director and her publisher were already seated as well as some of the cast from the movie. When writing the screenplay, Natalie had only one of the actors in mind who she had to have for the movie, and that was Natalie Portman. She had to be the leading actress in the movie version of her book no matter what it took. Luckily, Natalie Portman had offered to do it since she knew the director personally and loved the book, she had even asked her to sign her copy of it, which made Natalie extremely embarrassed because she was being asked to sign something instead of it being vice-versa. Her only trouble was casting the lead male, she had to find a Japanese male who would be okay speaking in English. Auditions had gone on for two weeks with no avail, she was about to go through the pile of "Maybe's" when she got a long distance phone call from Japan asking for her fax number. A few minutes later she recieved a headshot and resume with that of the visage that was Junya, her male character. Natalie was pulled from her reverie by someone placing their arm around her waist. She hadn't noticed that Ken had left her and she was being led the rest of the way by someone else. Looking up she really wished they weren't wearing masks so she could tell who the man was.

"You look really pretty in your dress." He said in a low teasing voice.
"Sho! You scared me! I had no idea it was you, you don't usually look this well all cleaned up." She elbowed him before she relaxed back against his arm.

*Gomen, it's so short. I just wanted to hurry up and post the first chapter though. So I left it us meeting Sho. Why is Sho there, eh? I also like to add a lot of detail in my writing...so it basically just started with me giving you the setting of where this is to take place. Hope you liked it, criticizm is welcomed via PM. Thanks!

Chapter 2 - Lucky Man

"I scared you? I'm just a guy with sloping shoulders...you can't judge me by that." Sho had responded in a pout.

"Of course I can, because you have sloping shoulders...in America that's a bad thing." Natalie had added emphasis to certain words to make him edgier. "You spent enough time there, you should know that." Taking a glance at Sho, Natalie saw that he was biting his lip in thought. He thought she was serious and that his shoulders made him look bad.

"Natalie?" the sound of his voice had made her stop dead in her tracks. Natalie had turned to look at him. His hand was covering his mouth as though he were thinking of a way to ask her something.

"What is it?" Natalie took a step forward and had reached her hand towards him when Ken appeared from the crowd at the entrance causing her to drop it by her side again.

"There you two are!" Sho's face shot up causing her to look at Ken too. "Come on, we're just waiting for you two. Get in here, please." Natalie had already started walking leaving Sho behind a few steps back. Ken showed her to her seat in the middle of the table inbetween the director Yasuharu Ishii and her publisher from Kani Books, Yoshikawa Tsurara. Sho had taken a seat next to Natalie Portman and Horikita Maki who played a side character in the movie. She carefully took off her mask and smiled at the press before settling down.

"Now that we are all settled and in our appropriate seats, I'd like to welcome you all to the opening gala for Notte de Carnivale." Ken stopped a bit for the applause before continuing. "It will hit theaters first here in Japan, a first for any Western movie, before opening the following week in theaters all around the United States and the rest of the world. We will now be taking questions."

Natalie looked around at all the eager reporters and felt her mouth go dry. She wasn't sure how she was going to get through this, she wasn't that great at understanding Japanese to begin with.

"This question is for Miss Natalie Hart, how was writing the screenplay different from when you wrote the original story. Are you happy with the outcome?" Natalie glanced at the Fuji logo on the reporter's press-pass.

"It was different writing the screenplay because when I wrote the original story, I knew what Junya and Anne looked in my mind's eye. It was easier to imagine my original characters doing the things I wrote because they were my characters. Having to see other people do the same things was a bit surreal for me." She looked down at Sho and Nat Portman with a smile. "The cast really did my characters justice...I should say I did the cast justice. I was blessed to have such great talents acting something I wrote out. I am really grateful to them."

"Was it true you wrote the Japanese parts yourself?" another reporter hurriedly asked.

"Yes. It is true...though I'm not sure I did it that well. I had a translator on hand afterwards checking my work. I felt like I was at school again ready to get lectured for grammatical errors." the crowd of reporters laughed.

"This question is for Sho Sakurai, how was it having to switch from Japanese to English for most of the film?"

Sho shook his head with a smile. "Let me tell you, I thought my English was fine until I read the script and found myself asking what certain words meant. I hope that my English doesn't sound to bad in the film."

"His English was fine. Working with him was always fun on the set because sometimes he would purposely mispronounce words to joke around with the Mr. Yasuharu and Miss Hart." Natalie Portman had spoken up after Sho.

The rest of the conference was spent talking to the director about working with the cast and the technical parts, like working on location in New Zealand and Ireland apart from Japan. After about 10 minutes they were allowed to return to the party. Maki had went somewhere with Nat in search of their masks while Natalie walked back to the main lobby area of the Ritz Hotel after securing her mask back on. She had lost Sho while she had posed for a few pictures with Mr. Yasuharu and she couldn't find him anymore among the identical men.

The lights dimmed and a spotlight pointed towards the stage. Everyone made their way towards it. A voice over the loudspeaker asked everyone to make their way as to watch the official gala opening.
The room went dark and then one by one five different men appeared on stage with a smoke screen. They were in costume, each one wearing a different colored suit jacket. They looked like a rainbow of glitter shining on the stage.

Shining town, glimmering night.
I've been waiting for this CARNIVAL NIGHT
Getting excited, tonight is the night.
NIGHT TONIGHT

Invited by the noise, I finally stepped outside.
I thought doing this alone was meaningless.

Regretting about our break up, I can't still believe it happened.
I feel like you would suddenly appear next to me smiling in this crowd.

The streets are filled with hot couples and I can't even go through.
Our last kiss realistically and sadly crosses to my mind.

We saw lighting on this NIGHT TONIGHT

Natalie watched in awe as the glittering men danced to the song. Each one singing with such emotion. She could tell that they had been doing this for a while for they had such discipline when executing certain dance moves. One in particular caught her eye as she watched, he had short black hair and was wearing blue sequins on his jacket. His mask was also black and blue and he seemed so in a zone. Natalie felt as though she were memorized by his movements.

CARNIVAL, for now I'll forget everything, DANCE AROUND
The sadness will disappear to the night sky.
The PARADE is coming, everyone will be smiling.
I want to show it to you, CARNIVAL NIGHT TONIGHT
(COME ON EVERYBODY LET'S GET DANCE YEAH)

Shining town, glimmering night.
I've been waiting for this CARNIVAL NIGHT
Getting excited, tonight is the night.
NIGHT TONIGHT

Marking the calendar, you were looking forward to it.
If we didn't say goodbye, we would go together.



She watched as the one wearing purple and gold sang together and moved to where she was standing. Natalie laughed as they danced around each other obviously having fun performing. She caught their smiles and couldn't help but sway to the music like everyone else.

I'm hoping that somehow I would see you.
But I won't notice you in this sea of people.

There are many pretty girls but none of them are you.
I see many cute girls but none of them are you.


Soaring with excitement, NIGHT TONIGHT


Natalie then turned her attention to the other two. The one in green was running around clapping to the rhythm inbetween versus at the audience as though asking them to join in. She started clapping along as well and as soon as everyone had joined in, he ran towards the one in red and jumped on his back laughing. They switched sides with the others and came her way. Singing with each other and dancing around. Natalie felt as though the whole room were vibrating, or was it just her?

CARNIVAL, for now, I will accept everything, DANCE AROUND
There are happiness and sadness in my memory of you.
The PARADE comes, unconsciously our voices rise
I want to show it to you, CARNIVAL NIGHT TONIGHT
(COME ON EVERYBODY LET'S GET DANCE YEAH)

The streets are filled with hot couples and I can't even go through.
Our last kiss realistically and sadly crosses to my mind.

We saw lighting on this NIGHT TONIGHT



The guys then jumped off the stage and ran around the guests singing and dancing with them. The one in green made his way around her area. Natalie kept clapping along and laughed whenever an unsuspecting guest was caught up by him and his unsynchronized dancing. The green one looked down her way and they locked eyes for a moment before he made his way to her, running, and grabbed her arm and spun her around singing. She felt as though she were going to trip in her heels but was stopped gracefully by him, her one arm behind her and his around her waist. Their faces were inches away that Natalie was sure she had stopped breathing. In those few seconds, that felt like hours, she managed to somehow memorize his lips and eyes. They were these dark brown orbs that seemed so sincere when looking into her own brown ones. His lips were slightly parted but she saw every crease and indent. They seemed to be soft from what she could see.

CARNIVAL, for now I'll forget everything, DANCE AROUND
The sadness will disappear to the night sky.
The PARADE is coming, everyone will be smiling.
I want to show it to you, CARNIVAL NIGHT TONIGHT
(COME ON EVERYBODY LET'S GET DANCE YEAH)

Shining town, glimmering night.
I've been waiting for this CARNIVAL NIGHT
Getting excited, tonight is the night.
Continuing until morning, CARNIVAL NIGHT



The one in red interrupted them as he came and spun her back upright before dipping her and spinning her again in his arms. She felt as though this person was familiar but couldn't look into his face as much since he kept her occupied. He spun her one more time before running back onto the stage with the others. Natalie's heart was racing loudly in her chest to the rhythm of the song. Her ears were hot and without moving her hands to check, she knew her cheeks were flushed bright red as well.

Shining town, glimmering night.
I've been waiting for this CARNIVAL NIGHT
Getting excited, tonight is the night.
Continuing until morning, CARNIVAL NIGHT


The song ended and the room went dark once more before flashing back on to the regular gala lights. The room went into thunderous applause for the empty stage. Natalie was to shocked to join in on the clapping.

"What just happened?" She managed to let out quietly.


*A little bit longer this time. I had to add the performance of the namesake and inspiration to this fanfiction. We had a little mystery action with Mr.Green, I wonder who that is. And what was it that Sho wanted to tell Natalie?
