correction:

Good morning: Ohayou Gozaimasu [theres a space inbetween]
And as for the:
Good afternoon and Good evening, -Gozaimasu at each end of Kounichiwa and Konbanwa is more formal and more direct to who youre talking to.

In Japan...

HEY! LOL is written as OIY! W!

LOL = W

When talking to a japanese person online

JK means High school girl.

JK stands for jous kouse (I forgot how to spell it so im spelling it the way it sounds like.)
So if you say "Ohhh hahaha you're fat.... JK!" to them they'll think " Ohh hahaha you're fat... high school girl?"
So watch out!

Mini informative blurb on pairings etc. in fandoms of japanese series:


■ In western fandoms (for example non-anime, western-created fandoms, like Star Wars etc.), the pairings are listed with a slash between them and in no particular order. Example: Obi Wan/Darth Vader. 

■ In fandoms from japanese series on the other hand, the letter "x" is used to indicate a romantic (or also just sex etc.) relationship between two or more characters. 
So if you want to indicate that the characters are together (consensually or not) in the fic, you can write "character A x character B", but if it's, say friendship or family or something, it would be "character A & character B" or "character A + character B" etc. 

■ In fandoms from japanese series, the seme (top) is always listed first, and the uke (bottom) listed second.
It may not seem as important at first sight, but it's actually is very important, because that allows your readers to know who is doing what in the story, and to search for the fics with the pairing in the order they like. Very Happy
(If your characters ar reversible, you simply write it both ways, such as "Kaname x Zero and Zero x Kaname" or "ZxK & KxZ" and so on.) 

I see that people often list the pairings wrong on FFnet summaries etc., which sometimes leads to disapppointment if a reader thinks they've finally found a fic with so-and-so as uke, or as seme, and then it turns out it was just a mistake in the way the author listed the pairing.
So I thought I'd write this little blurb in hopes it would be useful to other VK fanfic authors. Very Happy ♥ 

■ Similarly, in japanese fandoms there's also a way to list a pairing when one character is in love with the other but the other doesn't loves them back.
An arrow is used between the character's names, to show the feelings that are not returned.
Example: Aidou → Kaname. Or Luca → Kaname.
If you want to write a fic in which Luca loves Kaname but Kaname loves Yuuki, who is with him, you'd put in your summary: "Luca → Kaname x Yuuki". 

This is less important than the rule of the seme first x uke second, which is the one that causes most confusion if they're listed the wrong way.


.:Note—This was taken from Sagakure's ff.net page her site is Sagakure.net she is a very big VK fan and I love what she does! (Scans & translates the VK manga in her blog and shares her fan-fics | fan-art as well.) Since this is pertaining to learning Japanese, I decided to share this bit of info. It could be useful when members are thinking or starting role-plays with any anime/manga canon pairings or even OC pairings they would be familiar with the Japanese way._〆(・▽・  )ノ″

XOXO
