SHINee Jonghyun Boasts of Finally Succeeding in Convincing Kim Heechul to Get a Haircut

SHINee’s Jonghyun revealed on his personal Twitter account that he has finally convinced Kim Heechul to get a haircut.

On January 22, Jonghyun uploaded a photo on his Twitter of Kim Heechul turned around looking at a TV screen. The caption reads, “Heehul hyung sent me this picture to congratulate me [getting first place],” and then also added a caption which implied that Kim Heechul looked similar to Jo Hyun Ah, the former Korean Air executive, because of his hairstyle.

Soon after, Kim Heechul sent Jonghyun a picture of himself posing like Jo Hyun Ah.

Two days later, Jonghyun uploaded another capture of a conversation between the two. In the conversation Kim Heechul tells Jonghyun, “I didn’t listen to my fans, [my friend], or even my mom, but because you said I look like [Jo Hyun Ah], I am cutting my hair.”

Soon after, Kim Heechul uploaded on his Instagram a picture of hairs cut off. In the caption, he stated that despite the requests from multiple fans and his mother to get a haircut, he had been adamant about keeping his long hair. After Jonghyun’s comment, however, he finally made the decision to change his hairstyle.

Growing Up: Spotted Hyenas

Spotted hyenas do not have a mating season, rather females are polyestrus and will go into heat for two weeks several times though the year. These hyenas do not form lasting bonds when mating, and females tend to choose mates who are younger than them or new to the clan to ensure fresh genetic material. The act of mating is brief and most often occurs at night when no other hyenas are around.

Gestation among spotted hyenas averages 110 days and litters tend to have 2 cubs, though 3 is not uncommon. Birth is a painful process for female spotted hyenas because they give birth through their extended clitoris, which ruptures to facilitate the cub’s arrival and may take weeks to heal. Spotted hyena cubs are also some of the largest in the carnivore world relative to the size of their mother. Cubs are born in the clan’s underground dens and emerge with soft dark fur, their eyes already open, and already boasting 6-7mm long canine teeth.

Spotted hyenas have a high rate of parental investment compared to other carnivores. Hyena milk has a very high fat content and cubs will nurse from their mothers for 12 to 16 months though they are able to have solid food at 3 months. Young cubs spend a lot of time underground in the clan den which is most often the den of another species that has been taken over by the hyenas. At 2-3 months old, hyena cubs begin to lose their dark fur and spots begin to appear. At around 8 months they will start to show hunting behaviors during play and begin learning to hunt seriously at around one year old.

These hyenas have a long juvenile period, up to 18 months, and reach sexual maturity at 21 to 24 months old. Female hyenas tend to stay in their birth-clans and take over the positions of their mothers, while male hyenas will often leave to find new clans to stay with, either for a short while to mate or long term. Hyenas have an average lifespan of 12 years in captivity though they may live to be up to 25 years old. The well known spotted pattern starts out very dark and fades out as the hyena grows older.

Jealousy

Wilkinson➳


Taking Sam to one of your high school football games was exciting. He was finally going to meet all your friends. You both stood in the stands cheering on your team. Sam was getting along really well with all your friends, thank god. Your girl friends thought he was perfect and your guys friends didn’t hesitate to bring him right into the crew.

"Trevor’s playing great!" Your friend said to you.

"I know!" You smiled watching him play. Sam gave you a questioning look. "Trevor. One of my best friends. I haven’t seen him in forever. He got a scholarship to an awesome school to play football. He wants to be a doctor." You boasted un-intentially. Sam nodded his head slowly, something was wrong but you couldn’t tell what.

As the game ended, your group of friends headed down to the side of the field where Trevor was going to meet you. Trevor came off the field greeting you with a hug.

"Darlin!" He yelled pulling you into a hug. You hugged him back smiling even though he smelt terrible.

"I missed you!" You smiled up at him.

"I missed you too!" He smiled back. You walked him back to the locker room, talking about everything and anything you could think of before he had to go get changed.

"You like him?" Sam asked coming up behind you.

"Yeah I love him! He’s great!" You turned to look at Sam.
His face was clearly upset. You took his hand pulling him into the gym where no one was. “What’s wrong Sammy?” You asked pulling him close.

"Nothing." He shook his head.

"Sam." You pleaded.

"Trevor. I mean you think he’s good looking. He’s got a really good future obviously. You guys have been close forever. He could treat you well (Y/N). I don’t like the thought of that."

"Sam you don’t have to be jealous of him. Of our friendship. I don’t care how he would treat me. You treat me like a princess. I wouldn’t wanna be with anyone but you." You wiped the tears starting to fall from his eyes. He nodded and you kissed him. "Come on. Let’s go back to my house. "

Gilinsky➳

The guys decided to bring you along with them on their snowboarding trip out to Utah. You didn’t snowboard all too much, but a vacation was defiantly what you needed.

One day you decided to let the guys go to the slopes without you and just have some guy time. You were going to spend the rest of the day in the warm lodge wearing your favorite sweatpants and one of jacks sweatshirts, reading your favorite book. A few hours into your relaxing day, a very sweet boy came over and introduced himself to you. You both sat, having a very normal conversation about the book you were reading which just happened to be his favorite too.

"Hey babe." Jack whispered leaning over the top of the couch, making you jump.

"Jack!" You laughed. "You scared the shit out of me." The look on Jacks face was harsh. He didn’t like seeing you around other guys, never mind spending the day with one. "Oh! Jack. This is Ryan. Ryan this is my boyfriend Jack."

"Nice to meet you man!" Ryan held his hand out. Jack hesitate shook Ryan’s hand. Your eyes stayed on Jack, noticing he was very tense. "I should get going." Ryan smiled at the both of you politely. "Text me sometime." He hugged you and you hugged him back. Jack glared at you and you rolled your eyes. Jack took your hand, dragging you into the lodge’s bathroom.

"What the hell was that?" Jack pushed you up against the now locked stall door.

"What was what? He was just having a normal conversation with me." You raised your eyebrows, knowing you were pushing his buttons. A jealous Jack was a sexy Jack. He moved his hands down your body, squeezing you ass tighty.

"You’re mine do you understand that." He growled in your ear before nipping on your ear. You swallowed hard nodding. You were in for it.

Johnson➳

You and Johnson were walking around a store in the mall, just browsing. You picked out a cute top and went to go pay for it at the counter. The guy at the counter smiled at you, his eyes immediately scanning your body.

"Can I help you?" He bite his lip.

"Just this please." You handed the top over the counter and pulled your money out.

"No baby girl. I meant, can I help YOU." He pointed between the two of you. Your eyebrows shot up, completely shocked.

"No. You can’t help her." Jack popped up behind you slamming some money on the counter and taking the shirt. "But I can." Johnson’s smirked pulling you out the door of the shop.

"What was that?" You giggled walking along with Johnson back to his car.

"That was a certified douchebag (Y/N), rare in these parts, but still a danger to today’s society." His safari guide voice kept you laughing the whole way back to the car.

"I meant, why’d you get so jealous?" You asked taking his hand in yours.

"Jealous? I wasn’t jealous. I was….. Protecting the damsel in distress." He swung both of your hand and you finally arrived to the car.

"Whatever you say baby." You pecked his lips before moving around the car and getting in the passenger seat. Johnson got in the drivers and you both took off. After about 30 minutes of driving in comfortable silence Jack spoke up.

"I was jealous." He admitted his eyes not leaving the road.

"I know baby. You don’t have anything to be jealous about though. You’re my only safari hunter." You leaned over the center console pressing your lips to his cheek. His smile lite up, and so did yours.

Maloley➳

Nate and Sammy were totally tearing it up tonight. You stood backstage watching your boyfriend and his best friend live their dream. Kenny stood with you, and you guys just kept a small conversation going. He was being really touchy or some reason. His hands were placed lightly on your hips. He kept placing light kisses on your forehead and hands. You noticed Nate kept looking over at the two of you, and you knew it was making him jealous. You pressed your back into Kenny’s chest earning a harsh glare from Nate. Finally the set ended and he ran off the stage. He grabbed your arm dragging you into his dressing room leaving Kenny standing clueless. Nate locked the door once you both got in and pushed you up against the wall, your hands pinned above your head.

"Do you think this is a fucking game? Huh lil’ mama?" He pushed his hips into yours and you could already feel his hard on. "Screwing around with Kenny like that? You think Kenny could make you feel as good as I make you feel?" He whispered, his lips only a centimeter from yours.

"I bet he could make me feel better." You whispered back only trying to push Nate further. His eyes suddenly got dark, full with lust. His lips crashed into yours and his hand skillfully unbuttoned your jeans and slide down your panties, making you shudder.

"I’m sorry I couldn’t hear you babe. Who makes you feel better?" It was over. Nate had won, yet again. He was jealous of Kenny and you knew that, but he would never admit it out loud. This was as close as you were going to get.

"You Skate."

London cabmen.

From ‘Street Life in London’, 1877, by John Thomson and Adolphe Smith

"Despite the traditional hoarse voice, rough appearance, and quarrelsome tone, cab-drivers are as a rule reliable and honest men, who can boast of having fought the battle of life in an earnest, persevering, and creditable manner. Let me take, for instance, the career, as related by himself, of the cab-driver who furnishes the subject of the accompanying illustration. He began life in the humble capacity of pot-boy in his uncle’s public-house, but abandoned this opening in consequence of a dispute, and ultimately obtained an engagement as conductor from the Metropolitan Tramway Company. In this employment the primary education he had enjoyed while young served him to good purpose, and he was soon promoted to the post of time-keeper. After some two years’ careful saving he collected sufficient money to buy a horse, hire a cab, and obtain his licence."

(LSE Library)

Breiðablik (Broad-gleaming)- The home of Baldr. 

No fairer place in Asgard exists, the hall being prized as one of the realm’s greatest creations. Built with the help of the Light Elves, the Breiðablik combines magic, nature, and architecture to create a home for the fairest god. Built atop a minor mountain, secluded yet overlooking the golden city, the hall is deeply entwined with the land and its owner. In the summer months the hall blooms, shining white under the midday suns and casting a warm gold in the evenings, while dimming to a pale pearly sheen in the winter. Upon Baldr’s mind state does it also reflect, brimming with life and blossoming in his happiness, and degrading to ruins after his death.

As a home of light, nothing unclean may pass through its threshold and tarnish the god’s private sanctuary. While boasting a luxurious lifestyle, with its own library, geyser-heated bathing pools, fine sleeping rooms and a large dining hall, it is rarely host to large parties. Instead, in keeping with the nature surrounding it, the Breiðablik is more a place of solitude, an area in which to work without distraction, train in weaponry or meditation, or simply to enjoy writing, music, or art. 

Very few may enter the hall, only those close to Baldr or the rare few who stumble upon the building in a dream state, subconsciously called to the place of peace. None who venture into Asgard’s mountains and forests may come across the Breiðablik, whether purposefully looking or accidentally, unless possessing a power strong enough to see though the Alfar’s wards about the hall. Once inside, the rooms are wide and welcoming, always warm and most open to the elements. Because of this, wildlife wanders through the hall as it pleases, with roosts often made in the tall rafters and places for shelter for animals of all kinds. A variety of flowers also grow within the quarters, plants of different seasons blooming together by the warmth and love the Breiðablik offers. 

What is yet to come: Agran

To the far west of the primordial land of Gorgrond lies an area known as the Agran Steppes. Once it was known for not only it’s abundance of vegetation in an otherwise desolate land, but for it’s shifting temperatures. Perhaps due to it’s position near the icy tundra of Frostfire, the Agran Steppes boasted scorching days and summers along with winter cold nights born upon frost swept winds from the western coast.


That however changed with the arrival of the Blackrocks. Spurred by a lust for conquest and power, the nefarious orcish clan set up operations within the Steppes, the land rich in the iron and lumber they so craved. Carving a massive holding within the blackened mountains to the north, the clan began to warp the land to suit their needs. Ash and smog began to choke the skies, trapping the heat of the many forges for which the Blackrock’s were famed for, as well as from the various geysers that dotted the land, from escaping.


Nowadays the cold chill of Frostfire reaches only the coast, the inner lands having become a dry and desolate region. The reach of the Blackrocks had grown over the years to encompass much of the Agran Steppes, the choking ash clouds hanging in the air like a malignant poison. Various outposts link the mines and coastal settlements to the heart of Blackrock operations in the area; The Blackstone. From this mighty bastion the latest Forgemaster of Agran, Magnus the Hammer, enforces the will of his clan and of its chieftain. Even the ruined ogre towers and outposts, remnants of a once mighty empire, now serve as home for the Blackrocks.


Not all of Agran is lost to the Blackrocks however. To the west, the Laughing Skull of Skullgrin Village bite at the ankles of the mighty industrial behemoth, while the south houses the last bastion of Ogre rule. Various geysers and rock formations belong to the native beasts, titanic Rylaks dominating the sky. From the Spine of Grond, a massive range of steam geysers running across the length of Gorgrond, these beasts roam in search of an ever dwindling source of food.


The eye of Magnus has fallen over the rebellious elements of Agran, and it will only be a matter of time until the reach of Blackrock extends to the entirety of the land. One thing is however certain; blood will be spilled.
