(is that what this is called

listen. 

all of u out here with ‘yeah bts did well but let’s not forget that without tvxq, big bang, etc etc they wouldn’t be here’

guess what?????? no one’s forgetting them. we all know that the reason any of the groups now are known outside of korea is because shinhwa, h.o.t, sj, tvxq, big bang, wonder girls and psy invented the hallyu wave, as it’s called. bts (and other groups) grew up with these idols as their inspiration, so yes, we can’t forget them. no one’s forgetting that super junior went big in china, or that tvxq went big in japan and that’s how the newer groups have it easier in these markets. 

BUT

let’s be real. what bts has achieved is something no group has done before. please stop trying to take credit for what they have done just because you think your group or fandom is superior. fact: everyone thinks their fandom is the best. bts’ marketing strategy to have an active twt account and youtube channel since before debut is one thing that worked out extremely well for them. couple that with other things such as writing socially-aware lyrics, producing and composing their own songs, having kick-ass choreographies and showing off their dorky sides on social media, you can’t say that they didn’t deserve to go to the bbmas just because your faves couldn’t. 

bts broke boundaries that weren’t broken before, just like YOUR FAVES broke boundaries that weren’t broken before. older idols didn’t even have the full use of social media to promote themselves, and YET they broke into the asian market. bts had it, and they broke into the global market. just because they had the advantage of a better technological era doesn’t mean that they didn’t deserve the win. it just means that they used their assets very well, and deserved it even more. 

moreover, as the rolling stones said, bts write lyrics about loneliness (whalien 52), having a difficult time in life (lost), female empowerment (21st century girl), being confident in yourself (cypher pt 4) and so many other songs. this makes them relatable to not just a teenage fanbase (although yes, that is the majority), but an older fanbase as well. the catchiness of their songs makes them popular amongst the pre-teens. so you see, they have their reasons and validity for being where they are now. they deserve their fans, wins, and attention. 

therefore, before you go around saying that fans of bts need to respect what older idols have done, know that we do. we appreciate everything that has been done in the past that has made bts the successful band that they are today. but also know that we are proud of our boys, and that we will celebrate and rejoice. so for some reason, if that makes you bitter, by all means use the advanced technology we have today and mute us. 

because no, we’re not discrediting your faves. but we’re asking you to credit our faves when they deserve it. 

So I have to write an essay on narratives in video games and I chose Dark Souls as an example, but the internet has ruined me so I can’t tell whether or not “The Dark Souls of storytelling” is to meme-y for a title

A friend of mine told me today that my best male friend and I look like young Tom Riddle and Bellatrix Lestrange and that’s why she’d ship us

Now I know that my life still has a meaning and a purpose

Nobody asked for... [Part 4]

He didn’t like it. Not one bit.

Another round of giggles echoed from the Moby Dick’s figurehead and Ace felt a tingle down his spine at the sound. Whipping around, he glowered at the pair of women sunning themselves, heads of red and white sitting opposite each other in stark contrast like a chess pieces.

Riskua was doing that talking-with-her-hands thing she does when she gets really into a topic. Ace longed to spend time with her…

Only…

It came as a surprise to find the notification from THIS frequency, though, after a few seconds it was not ALL that out of the blue. Elita would even go so far as to consider Blackguard a friend of hers… friends did have conversations on a semi-regular basis, didn’t they?

Besides, she was in need of something… that request would come later if the opportunity present itself.

                  ¦ ¦  Greetings, Blackguard…. are you…. doing well?  ¦ ¦

Yikes; her social skills still suffered from her current state of mind it would seem.

Strange things can occur in the wake of tragedy. Jealously can completely dissipate and jaded individuals can became friendly - though Blackguard wouldn’t admit that was the case with her. Her social calls and efforts to be an actual friend ally to Optimus and Elita were out of her own desire and interest, not out of sympathy from sparkbreak they experienced.

«As well as I can be.» Awkwardness, meet more awkwardness. Pay no attention the vocalizer reset or the slight pause between her answer and question. «How.. are things going for you?» Or this pause. «Whatever it is you do. I.. don’t think I ever asked or anything. What are you and Optimus doing? For work I mean. And.. war wise, I guess.»

“Spirits and Gods leave their mark everywhere, but if you want to see the Moon Goddess, look for her children. Go to the heavens for where they dwell, so, too does the Goddess.”
“Is this true, Nana Grand?”
“Of course it’s true, child! I should know, I met her myself!”
“Then I shall pilot a most magnificent airship and find her myself!”

I always like to check fictional locations on real maps and I’m so glad I did because otherwise I would never have known how they came up with the name for the Far Harbor DLC
