I was Jun-baited, and that's probably all you need to know. I was Jun-baited because I have taste, screw y'all who think being Jun-baited sucks. But I don't really care, because Jun is pretty much textbook definition awesome, with or without any one else's validation. Everything I have/had to say about the man is in this verbally calorific entry that I wrote last year, and yes, it is long and sappy and everything Jun deserves. I'll keep it simple today: happy birthday, I can't believe you're 29 already, you'll always be the one I'm most fond of, you da bomb, iloveyoualwaysforever.
You'll always have a fangirl in me (in non-creepy and well-adjusted ways, I'd like to think. The nerdiness will never stop though, I'm sorry to say.) Once a Jun-bait, always a Jun-bait. ♥
And because I can, picture + gif spam of what is probably the best smile/laugh in the whole multiverse, ever! I dare you not to smile while looking at this. No, seriously, because I don't think Jun would appreciate us parsing his cool persona and finding out that he is actually a fat-ass purple Carebear deep inside with a bad case of the giggles, you know? Shh! He has an image to protect and all.
I mean, if you were born looking like this, you were bound to be a cheerful person, yeah? (Give or take a bumpy adolescence--you can't hide from happy genes forever, after all, it's genetics!)
Just look at that smile. I mean, they all look pretty cheerful (Aiba might be a close runner-up) but Jun is just radiating with the stuff
The jetski isn't even running okay, he's just that glad to be alive
Because just look at him and Sho. Look at them!
I have never, ever, seen anyone else so happy to be in turquoise leotards. EVER.
Happy shampoo timez with the members
and so breathtaking. Ugh that smile
I wonder if he knew then just how perfect he was? /tear
In which it's not really a secret that he's kind of sort of attached to Ohno and it'll never be not cute
BECAUSE WHAT IS HAPPINESS? IT IS CHOKING SHO, THAT'S WHAT
HE IS A FUCKING HAPPY PERSON WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO BE VERY SELF-ASSURED OKAY
I love this picture more than I can ever say
So cheerful about Ohno covering up his nipples
and shoving stuff up Ohno's nose
Because if this isn't love/happiness/rainbows, idk what is
This is art in motion guys don't miss it
Cute cute cute ugh my otp heart
Ugh you two. Such smarmy sweetness
BITE BITE BITE. He has rabies. Happy rabies.
In which Jun loves to be manhandled
Because you just know he's in his element during concerts
Idol leg surfing is obviously where it's at, and Jun's on it
And suddenly the room feels too bright when you add Aiba! Sunshine explosion
ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE JUN SHOOTS EVER
Jun + animals is a whole other post but yes, have this one
Baby please stay goldddddddddd
This kills me on so many different levels
Just around the time when Jun's giggly, happy gene came out in public in full force. YOU CAN'T STOP NATURE BABY
No, you obviously can't
Tanned Jun! ;_;
Ugh and this look too how dare I forget
So happy happy happy
And god, how killer was your burgeoning chirpiness with that hair?
You don't know the end of it ;_;
And because we can't neglect the fact that Nino also loves himself some happy J
MY SOUL SOUL FOREVS
And like previously mentioned, he will always have a thing for Leader and won't refuse swing rides at their age just because it's Leader and Jun's really a happy Carebear deep inside, no matter how he tried to supress it, poor delusional boy, so yes to Leader and to swings and sunshine
Smile in the beautiful world indeed
And now, as you are.
29 and wonderful and perfect
and just a brighter version of what you've always been in the first place
...and wow. It's even harder to look away from you now.
But yes. Only Jun. ONLY JUN
...can make me feel this good with just this: THE BEST SMILE EVER. :)
I SEE YOUR TRUE COLORS SHINING THROUUUGH
I SEE YOUR TRUE COLORSSSS
THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU /sings
Birthday boy, I like you, just like this. Never stop smiling and just being fine with who you are.
BECAUSE JUN, WHO YOU ARE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT AND MARVELOUS.
Always marvelous. (Somebody bring that corner back, please please please.)

The rest, you can blame tumblr. Yes. A tip: dreamlights has the best updated Jun stash in all of tumblr, go get your fix there! I know I do.
