Their first kiss was probably over something like getting really excited about watching the Kings win the Stanley Cup. It went on like fifteen seconds longer than any anyone in the room was comfortable calling platonic.
Would you still feel the same way about Sangwoo if he looked more like a stereotypical creep and less
like a Men’s Health model? Read the entire post before answering.
[Note: I’m a Tumblr fail, so sorry in advance for not replying to comments. I can’t figure out how to.]
Let me begin by saying that I have no
love whatsoever for Sangwoo, no matter what he looks like. I’m often
a sucker for manhwa/manga bad boys, but I would run Sangwoo over
repeatedly, if given the chance.
(Sadly, since he’s composed of pixels
I’ll have to settle for throwing mental darts at his digital face…)
Another disclaimer. Killing Stalking is
not a manhwa I would normally read. I was tricked into checking it
out because an ad described it as a suspense/thriller, not a
horror/abuse story. However, once I began reading I couldn’t stop
because I wanted, so badly, to see someone (anyone!!!) obliterate
Sangwoo in every possible.
(Personally, I was hoping Koogi would
introduce a kickass, female detective to team up with Seungbae and
STOMP SANGWOO INTO THE GROUND, but alas, I don’t think Koogi’s going
to grant my wish…)
KS is one of the most disturbing works
of fiction I have ever read, but as disturbing as KS is, I am
equally—if not more disturbed—by the rabid ‘Sangwoo
Fangirl/Fanboy’ (SF) subsection of the fandom. There’s nothing wrong
with loving a well-crafted villain (let’s face it – they’re often
the most intriguing characters, largely because we have no idea what
they’re going to do next), but there is a difference between loving
(or, loving to hate) a villain and letting that love blind you. When
you are using your love for the villain to justify or excuse what
that villain does, that’s a huge problem.
I see your raised hackles. Put your
claws (and any other weapons!!!) away for a minute and hear me out.
I’m not writing this post as a lecture. I’m writing it because what
I’m seeing in the KS fandom is a prevalent issue that exists in all
media (and the world at large).
Although we may not admit it, most of
us are far more likely to excuse/justify/defend bad behaviour if an
attractive person is doing it. It happens all the time. It can vary
from something minor, like excusing your criminally smexy secret
crush’s rudeness to, oh I don’t know, romanticizing a sadistic,
(Think Twilight. Edward Cullen. Daddy
Swan was so NOT HAPPY about his daughter dating a ninety year old
vampy, but can you imagine how many MORE tables he—and everyone
else in Forks—would have flipped if Edward had LOOKED like a
We all know attractive people are not
any more inherently good or bad than an 'unattractive’ person, so why
are we often MORE shocked if we discover ugly motives hiding behind a
pretty face? Why do we expect the intelligent and charismatic, pretty
girl/boy next door to be morally superior to the socially inept slob
from across the street? Moreover, why are we more inclined to FORGIVE
them for their flaws, mistakes, and even crimes?
I think—social conditioning
aside—that deep down we don’t want to believe we are attracted to
someone bad/evil, because if we are attracted to that kind of person,
then what kind of people does that make us?
This isn’t my theory, by the way. I
first heard it from a Youtuber (I’ll be darned if I can remember his
name. Sorry v.v), who mentioned it while analyzing Death Note. Like
Sangwoo, Light gets away with a whole lot of crap (within the manga,
and with fans) because of his looks and popularity.
Now, getting back to the fandom. I have
seen a disturbing number of SF bending over backwards, frantically
trying to revive their deceased Sangwoo/Yoon Bum “love story”.
Hate to burst your bubble, folks, but that fantasy should have died
the minute Sangwoo’s bat shattered Bum’s legs.
Yet, it hasn’t.
As the story progresses and more and
more of Sangwoo’s twisted tendencies come to light, I think that many
SF are switching teams to join the SH, aka Sangwoo Hategirls and
Hateboys. (Hategirls? Hateboys? Is that a thing? Did I just coin
something?? :P). But, on the other hand, there are fans who are
desperately clinging to the possibility of Sangwoo’s goodness like a
buoy in a tempest. Rather than burying the corpse of their BL
daydream and admitting that Sangwoo is a vile piece of EVERYTHING
THAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD with NO POSSIBILITY OF REHABILITATION,
they are becoming more and more defensive (and forgiving) by the
Like I said before, I’m not writing
this post to point fingers. I’m not saying that you are a horrible
human being if you are a diehard SF and a member of the SWxYB cheer
squad. I’m only asking that you put down your blood-soaked pom-poms
for a second and take a look at those two Sangwoos.
If tomorrow, Koogi began drawing Hottie
Sangoo as Nottie Sangwoo, would you still feel the same?
All Might: Midoriya, my boy, isn’t this your stop? Midoriya: *soft snore* All Might: Ah…
I’m still running a day or two behind ugh (life, what a pain, am I right?) But I think I’m just gonna keep going from here instead of trying to cram extras in *sweats*
Prompt: I’ve gotten a couple of prompts for Deku and All Might, one where he was carrying a sleeping Deku, and another where their personal space was non-existant, so I kinda combined them?? I think All Mights huge form looks a bit strange in my style, making him too big would look odd, but too small and he looks wrong too </3
(For some reason my brain decided, along with drawing two characters that I havn’t had much practice with, to also put them on a train, for maximum effort :’)? OTL goodnight y’all)
Description: After showing off to his friends what he could do more push-ups than them, you felt like he was going overboard with his competitive side. Ignoring him for a couple weeks, made a new side of him come out.
A/N: I made a bet in a group chat that I wouldn’t say anything sexual about Jungkook for a month. I won but during that month, I would type out how a felt about this “unnamed guy” aka Jungkook. So, after the month was up, I decided to change all the ‘He’s to Jungkook. The beginning is kind of based on Episode 12 of Run BTS. I can’t believe I wrote all of this filth. Well, looks like I’m going to hell after this. Also, I didn’t edit it. So, if there’s any mistakes. I’m sorry
Whenever he walked over to you, there would be a huge smile on his face. It would have seemed as if he won the lottery or if he found out something interesting that he was ready to tell you about. Jungkook’s smile made you feel like you were stuck in a trance and everything around you was moving slowly. Whenever you looked into his considerably large eyes, it would feel as if it was only you and him in the world. He had that effect on you and you never knew it. He had his days where he would annoy you to the point where you would ignore him for days on end. Especially on this particular day, he was showing off way too much and you were not having it.
Age 12 - First Jupiter Return: The ancients celebrated puberty because the biological God and Goddess of creation had been awakened and it was a sacred time in one’s life. This was recognised with jubilance and honour. Jupiter rules hormones and cultural conditioning. In modern times we shame and denigrate the phase, remarking on hormonal changes that inconvenience society, and yet we wonder why teenagers self destruct, rebel, and turn to substance. This changing biology transforms the lower body and activates the spirit, and yet we are not prepared or nurtured for this powerful change.
Age 14 - Jupiter opposes Saturn: The resistance to authority and conditioning is activated here, along with self consciousness and the lure into danger. This is the moment a young person can typically choose between ‘indulgence, laziness, and self pleasure’ (Jupiter) in leaving school or ‘responsibility, expectation, and conforming to authority’ (Saturn) in remaining in school or focusing on the future. The karmic lesson is revealed around this period. We face intimidating figures of authority, often threatening with ‘what until you’re in the real world’ shaking confidence even more
Age 21 - Uranus squares natal Uranus: 21 is the age globally recognised as completed transition into adulthood. This period indicates self expression and experimentation, a time for tattoos and lilac hair and inspiration. It’s a favourable time for sparking people’s interest in astrology. Political activity, protest, and rebellion can begin around here. Cosmically, this is a time where people learn a lot about themselves and generate good self awareness, they start to feel wholly in their body, or as if fogginess has dissolved
Age 28-30 - First Saturn Return: Everything you have built until this point is under threat. Saturn writes his first report card, and it will rely on how intimate and satisfactory you have been in facilitating Saturn’s condition in the natal chart. This is the biggest overhaul we experience on a physical/mental level, when the anchor of the chart completes transit and writes a new criteria. We are given 29 years because the reading material and substance is so profound. Harsh reality hits with shattering force. It’s time to become an adult.
