Anonymous said: Looking forward to the day you'll finish DEG challenge.

That day is today. XD Not sure if this was a message left in interest over my posts or if it was moreso a “oh good no more really long posts,” because trust me, I could see it going either way. I type A LOTTTTT. A freakish lot. I know this. XD

But yeah, I finished jussst now. And I filed them all under a unique tag, not JUST “questionaire.” So if anyone actually does want to wade through my Diru Challenge posts, clickittyclack here:

30 Days of Diru

Day 30: If you could say one thing to all of Dir en grey, what would it be?

AND NOW I HAVE REACHED THE END.

I’m going to put all of this under a read more cut, because knowing myself, it is going to get LONG and probably really emotional and such. XD

Day 25: A Dir en grey song you can relate to the most.

THAT AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN YOU REALIZE YOU SKIPPED A DAY IN THE DIRU CHALLENGE. o.o I’m finishing today, though~ Well, I guess that technically, I should finish tomorrow, but the answer for Day 25 has already been stated in Day 7 (the answer is "Kodou"), so Day 25 is only going to consist of some copypasted segments from that day after the read more cut, and that’s more or less it. Sooooo I’ll post Day 30 after this one, and then I’ll be allllll done~

Day 29: Have you seen them live (tell us about it) / do you plan to.

Um, well I’ve kind of already babbled about it a tiny bit on Day 24 and Day 28… o.o I have seen them live twice, and if anyone wants a more detailed description of my first time seeing them (The Unwavering Fact of Tomorrow, SF show), they can go through the flaming hoop that is making a friendship request on my LiveJournal and then reading this entry, but the gist of it is that I had a blast and ultimately ended up diving over the front bar after their set to retrieve Die’s pick, and later came into possession of Toshiya’s pick, as well. XD If anyone wants a more detailed description of my second time seeing them (Age Quod Agis, SF show), they can read this post I made on Tumblr (YAYYYYY no accursed censorship ~vagueass shit don’t ask~). But the gist of THAT post, if you don’t want to read all of it, is much the same as my first time seeing them - had a blast, ended up diving over the bar at the end and retrieving a pick again, Toshiya’s. Key difference: My beloved Jael Face and her honey were with my honey and I. XD

And yes, I absolutely plan on seeing them again the next time they happen to be touring near me. I’m assuming this won’t be too difficult… I mean I live in the Bay Area now and they almost always hit up SF, and then I’m planning to move to LA this summerish? And they ALWAYS hit up LA. XD So there WILL be more opportunities…

Day 28: Your favorite Dir en grey merchandise that you own.


Do picks count as merchandise? I don’t know if they do; I didn’t BUY them. I OBTAINED them by diving over the front bar at their shows… o.o Anyway, ignore my face; the picture is up to show two of the three picks that I have in possession. They are my babies. Tots’ pick (in my mouth XD) I got at the Age Quod Agis show in SF, and Die’s pick (the one strung on a chain around my neck) I got at The Unwavering Fact of Tomorrow show, ALSO in SF. By the way, I also got Tots’ pick at The Unwavering Fact of Tomorrow show, as well.
So… yeah. If you’re telling me that picks don’t count as merch, then… for one, I cry tears of sadness. For two, I guess… I’d have to choose the tour shirts I got. I got one at each show I’ve been to (Just The Unwavering Fact of Tomorrow and Age Quod Agis so far).

Day 27: Your favorite Dir en grey gif.

YOU CAN’T MAKE ME CHOOSE JUST ONE. FUCK THE POLICE. Anyway… So. The gif of Kyo… it is my favorite because HIS HIPS. OH GOD. HIS HIPS. And the gif of Tots… is my favorite because THAT SLIDING. Oh fuck, guys. I mean to be honest any gif of Tots playing on his sezzar bass could easily be among my favorites. Like I seriously just love watching his fingers. OOPH.

Day 26: Your favorite group / member quote.

"Not everything that one cannot understand is a lie or an error." - Kyo

Because it’s absolutely, positively the truth, and I feel like there are too many people in the world who don’t realize this.

"In my opinion, music can’t save the world, but I think it can change a person’s life. So just for someone to listen to our music and understand us is already something amazing." - Toshiya

THIS SO HARD. I love that he acknowledges that amazingness. They make music that touches people. He’s not going to go out on a limb and say the music fixes everything wrong on the planet, but I think he’s right when he says that it can change a person’s life, even if only in small, comforting ways.

Day 24: Most memorable moment with Dir en grey.

HEY HOW ABOUT THE TIME I WAS AT THE UNWAVERING FACT OF TOMORROW TOUR AND WAS REACHING OUT TO PLUCK A GUITAR PICK FROM DIE’S HAND AND THEN IT GOT KNOCKED ONTO THE FLOOR AND THEN I DOVE OVER THE BAR TO RETRIEVE IT AND DIE BASICALLY BOOKED IT?

I think that’s pretty freaking memorable. XD I’m assuming he either doesn’t remember me, OR, if he does, he isn’t quite so scarred by my actions, because I went to the Age Quod Agis show in SF and I THINK he smiled at me when I held up that pick of his, which I have strung onto a chain around my neck.

(Also I ended up diving/getting tossed over the bar at THAT show… O.o Retrieved Toshiya’s pick. So I still need Kaoru’s pick, and Shinya’s drumstick. And… I don’t know. Kyo’s waterbottle or something. XD)

Day 23: Your 3 favorite pictures of Toshiya.

THIS WAS THE HARDEST THING. IT WASN’T EVEN BECAUSE I COULDN’T FIND A CERTAIN PICTURE, LIKE WITH KYO. NO. THIS WAS THE HARDEST THING BECAUSE I HAVE TOO MANY. I HAD TO LEAVE ONE OUT AND IT CAUSES ME SO MUCH PAIN. ~WHINE WHINE WHINE~

Day 22: Your 3 favorite pictures of Shinya.
