DON'T ASK ME WHY I USED THAT SONG I JUST DID OKAY

How them 2000s live actions kids shows be
  • Normal Girl: *internally* I'm just a normal high school girl. I suck at math. I hate my parents. When someone asks me about my opinion on complex socioeconomic issues, I just go "What the heck!?" and start "texting" or something like that. My life would be just like yours, except for one thing: I have an amazing power... I can talk to cetaceans!
  • *at the docks, a bell tolls as our normal protagonist hears the voices of cetaceans bubbling in her mind*
  • Normal Girl: *staring deeply into the ocean*
  • Best Friend: Ahoy! What're you doing?
  • Normal Girl: Just staring into the oceanic abyss, thinking about how much I hate my parents. *internally* I have to keep my ability to speak to cetaceans secret or else... uh...
  • Best Friend: Haha, I feel that, friend. What a colorful life we teens live, our seaside environment awakening a rumbling darkness within ourselves of which we mull on our own with nothing but the unbounding depths of the ocean as our one escape. An escape which serves to only maim our fragile egos with newfound adolescent anxieties.
  • Normal Girl: What are you even talking about?
  • Best Friend: I don't know. I haven't slept in a week. Let's go to the mall.
  • *at the mall*
  • Normal Girl: *internally* My town might as well be called Lamesville. Nothing ever happens here, but the mall can be pretty fun. It's only place in the whole town with anything in it that isn't fish or excessive amounts of woodlice.
  • Best Friend: ...So I'd just dance and I'd dance until my feet broke. When that happened, I'd just get up and dance on my broken feet. And I did this until they were raw and blood was everywhere. I kept waking up in the morning extremely exhausted after this dream. I decided to record myself one night and it turns out I was dancing in my sleep. I haven't slept since I saw that. *leans in close to the normal girl* I'm afraid of what I'll do in my sleep.
  • Normal Girl: Wow, sounds weird... I guess. *sips coffee*
  • Best Friend: OMIGAWD! It's Chad Alphakid. He's coming this way!
  • *the normal girl and her best friend squee*
  • Normal Girl: *externally* That's Chad Alphakid. Who is he? He's only the hottest most coolest boy in this entire lame city. I've been crushing on him since I was like twelve.
  • Chad: Uh, okay.
  • Normal Girl: Did I just say that out loud!?
  • Chad: *sits at the table* Listen, I don't care what you or your friend think of me. I need help!
  • Best Friend: Have you murdered somebody?
  • Normal Girl: Do you need a girlfriend?
  • Chad: No, it's the ocean. The sound of her waves crashing against the shore is like a faultless siren song. There isn't a single night where I don't have visions of floating within her cold embrace. The allure of her boundless depths beckon to me like a lover. I'm afraid that if I don't get help soon, I'll find myself taken away by her to a fate unknown.
  • Normal Girl: *internally* Great, this is a chance to finally use my power to speak to cetaceans to my benefit! *externally* But why do you need us to help you?
  • Chad: You guys are the biggest fucking degenerate weirdos in this washed up town. If anyone knows how to deal with this, it's you two.
  • Best Friend: Haha, truuuuuu!
  • Normal Girl: I'm not a weirdo! I'm a completely normal girl.
  • Chad: Dude, you fucking talk to fish.
  • Best Friend: You do talk to fish.
  • Normal Girl: I don't talk to fish! *internally* I talk to cetaceans, they're mammals, not fish. Also, that's supposed to be a secret, dammit!
  • *at the shore*
  • Chad: Ah, Mother Ocean! Take me!! Take me!!! *attempts to run into the ocean, but gets held back by the normal girl and her best friend*
  • Best Friend: Simmer down, aqualad!
  • Chad: Why did you fools take me here, if not to release into the embrace of sweet Mother Ocean!?
  • Normal Girl: We talked it over and we decided that the best way to get you over your obsession is make you hate the ocean.
  • Chad: Does it involve you talking to fish?
  • Normal Girl: Yes, I mean no. I mean, fuck! Cetaceans aren't fish.
  • *the normal girl sits at the edge of shore, her eyes rolls up in her head as she proceeds to make fucked up porpoise sounds*
  • Normal Girl: *falls over limp*
  • Best Fried: She died.
  • Chad: Does this mean that I'm free to wade into Mother Ocean and meet my fate among her ever chaotic waes?
  • Best Friend: *lets chad go* Yeah, dude. I'm too far gone to care about things anymore.
  • Chad: *strips off all of his clothes* Good. I now understand that there was no avoiding this. This was always a forgone conclusion. My fate is with the waves. Sayonara, weird best friend guy.
  • Chad: *runs into the ocean*
  • Best Friend: *kicks the normal girl's body* Guess she really is dead.
  • Best Friend: *walks home as the night encroaches* My closest friend is dead, and Chad is probably dead too. I wonder where my fate lies?
  • Best Friend: *yawns* Maybe I should go to sleep and just dance myself to death finally. No, I don't think I could go to sleep even if I wanted to anymore. I'm probably going to die from exhaustion in the next few days, not having felt rest or comfort again. Or maybe I'll just stay awake forever. I feel like I was supposed to have an epiphany here, or some type of awakening. But, there's nothing. I feel like everything I've ever done has been pointless. God, I'm just really tired.
  • *back at the shore*
  • Porpoise: *beaches itself*
  • *a gray fleshy version of the normal girl crawls halfway out of the porpoises mouth*
  • Normal Girl: There goes my corpse! *drags her weird porpoise body towards the corpse* Why did I die with such a dumb expression on my face? Lame! I hope Chad didn't see.
  • Normal Girl: *looks around with beady eyes* No one's here. I can finally do this.
  • Normal Girl: *kisses her dead body on the lips* Blargh!
  • Normal Girl: *spits out blood* I bit my tongue when I died. Gross. I guess I can cross making out with my dead body and becoming a mermaid off of my bucket list, though.
  • Normal Girl: *sighs*

cause it is all about you,

seconds feel like millenniums
when I’m without you

how much of human life
is lost in waiting?

lovingeachdayasifitsthelast  asked:

I don't know if you're taking prompts rn but I just read a post about a guy who was dancing with a girl at a club and she asked him if he was hungry and then took him outside to eat the cake she had brought with her and that just seems like something Bitty would do, bringing pie to a club. So I just wanted to ask if you could write that with zimbits? Thanks!

But of course! I’m assuming in this ficlet that Bitty and Jack haven’t ever met before because…well, I don’t know why. Reasons. Hope you enjoy!

There is no escape. Tater had draped one beefy arm around Jack’s shoulders. “You’re coming to club with us,” he had said. Jack had not been able to squirm away. Team bonding, he had told himself. It’s important to bond with your team.

Now, Jack can feel the deep sound of the bass in his ribcage. He’s been nursing the same drink for the past hour. He’s trying not to be ostentatious about the way he’s checking his watch to see if it’s socially acceptable to leave yet.

Tater loves to dance. (Surprise.) Poots is surprisingly good at dancing (no surprise, as soon as anyone puts on music in the locker room he’s shimmying to it). Jack dances, a little.

He turns suddenly, about to leave the dance floor, and nearly bumps into a blond guy. The little dude is brown-eyed and a blond cowlick sticks up off the top of his head. He’s wearing a shirt with solid blue sleeves and an almost entirely lace front. Little dude is hot.

The lace shirt is the kind of thing Parse would wear, and little dude is rocking it with exactly the same lack of apology. Jack blushes. “Excuse me.”

“Sorry, my fault,” the blond guy says. “I’m, um, B–Eric.”

“Hi Beric,” Jack says.

Eric rolls his eyes. He puts his hand on Jack’s forearm, carefully, like he’s bracing to be brushed off. “Dance with me,” he says.

Parse would do this too, hiding in plain sight, he called it. Jack lets Eric drag him back onto the dance floor.

They dance facing one another, not touching. Eric does a little shimmy and Jack copies it. Jack rolls his hips and Eric mimics him. Fuck it, Jack thinks, and reaches out and hooks two fingers in one of Eric’s belt loops and tows him in. Eric lets himself be pulled.

“What sport?” Eric asks in Jack’s ear.

“Curling,” Jack replies.

Eric makes a face at him.

“Okay, you’ve got me,” Jack says, bringing his mouth close to Eric’s ear so he doesn’t have to shout. “We’re definitely the Canadian bobsled team.”

Eric laughs and meets Jack’s eyes. “I know a hockey ass when I see one, Mr.–”

“–Jack,” Jack says, helplessly charmed. “Just Jack.”

They dance together for three more songs. Jack can’t bring himself to care if his teammates are starting at him. Let them look. Jack’s having fun.

“Are you hungry?” Eric asks.

“Are you asking what I think you’re asking?” Jack hasn’t ever given anybody a blow job in a club bathroom before, but there has to be a first time for everything, right?

“Probably not,” Eric says. “It’s just–I’m hungry, and I brought pie.”

Which is how Jack ends up on the sidewalk eating a blueberry hand pie at (he checks his watch) 2 AM. The pie is quite possibly better than sex. 

“Oh my god,” Jack says thickly through a mouthful. “Did you make this?”

Eric nods, and licks a smear of blueberry off his hand. “I like to bake,” he says.

“This is, like, the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth,” Jack says very seriously. Eric breaks down into giggles. “Okay,” Jack says, embarrassed, “I know how that sounded.”

Eric raises his eyebrows at him. “You want to?”

It’s a testament to how attractive Eric is that Jack seriously considers it. “Can’t,” he says. “But–give me your number?”

Jack has to look away from the bright hope on Eric’s face. “You come here often?” Eric says.

“Maybe.” Jack puts his number in Eric’s phone. “Thanks,” he says. He’s suddenly aware of how tired he is. “I’m going to turn into a pumpkin now,” he says.

Eric reaches up and touches him, two soft fingers against his mouth. “I should find my friends,” he says. “Get home safe.”

“You too,” Jack says. “Thanks for the pie.” The last thing he remembers of the night is Eric’s Cheshire Cat smile.

I think why I love this song so much is because it truly shows that after all, Shawn is just as human as we all are. There’s a crack behind his smile, there’s a darkness inside his light and sometimes he has to pretend to be fine. I love that we get to see a side where he’s not just okay all the time. He feels - and he feels deeply - he struggles, he gets insecure and he wonders about life. He goes through things just like we do, he feels lost sometimes just like we do. The pressure of whatever is on his shoulders too and he’s not just some guy who has life planned out for him. He’s still finding himself, he’s still figuring himself out, he’s still - like possibly every other human out there - working on himself and that’s really damn beautiful to me. This is a song from Shawn to Shawn because this song gives him something to hold on to when things are hard. To me it seems like he’s telling himself no matter how hard things get, he can’t quit because quitting isn’t an option, because you can’t let the dark side or the stupid thoughts take over. But this is also a song from Shawn to us because it’s something for us to hold on to as well when our world is falling apart and we’re sinking in deeper. Because that feeling this song gives, - we’ve all had that feeling nagging deep inside our chest - and Shawn gave us something to hold on too if you ask me. Because Shawn is a fighter, we are fighters too. It isn’t in our blood to give up. No matter how hard or lonely it gets, how empty and lost you feel… It just isn’t in our blood to give up. 

I’m so glad we got to see what goes on in his mind, I’m so glad we got something deeper and somehow darker. I love the honesty, the rawness and the emotions in this song. It’s so unlike what we expected from him but I’m glad he shares that side with us too, the side of him that’s human, hurting and real. Shawn’s mind is beautiful and it works in such lovely ways and this is just a proof of it. I’m so in love with this song and what it teaches us. Our boy did good and I’m so proud. 

anonymous asked:

I'm an Eruri shipper, but sometimes I get the feeling that Erwin didn't love Levi back, which makes me sad. Levi's feelings towards Erwin are 100% canon and have been reiterated countless times, but Erwin seemed too focused on his father and his mission to truly love Levi back! I think is why their relationship hasn't been established as romantic: Levi loves Erwin but cannot be with him due to Erwin's one track mind. It makes me sad, as I don't want Levi living knowing Erwin didn't love him :(

Okay so this is an argument that I’ve heard many times before and I’ve already answered a few asks about this: Undoubtedly. Unquestionably. Unconditionally. Let me see if I can set your mind at rest Anon…

You’re right that Levi is much more vocal about his devotion to Erwin.  There are countless examples in the manga, in the Smartpass content and most recently, and most heartbreakingly, in the monologue that accompanies Levi’s character song.

“In order to catch the freedom, I felt outside the wall. I chose everything by myself. Even Erwin will lead me to hell, I will never regret. Never. Not even a bit.”

JFC just kill me Levi….

Erwin is much more reserved, but that doesn’t mean that he does not reciprocate Levi’s feelings, and in actual fact there’s plenty of evidence that he does.  It’s there in the way he talks to Levi in the manga, the weird humour they share, the fact that he uses ore when talking to Levi rather than watashi, which he uses with everyone else.  It’s there in the Smartpass content, in the private meals they share after expeditions, the tender moment in the rain, the fancy clothes and the contraband tea that Erwin procures for Levi.  It’s there in the ridiculously shippy official art.  And it’s there in spades in ACWNR where Erwin is openly fascinated by Levi and pursues him with single minded determination.

Now I know there is an argument that even if Levi and Erwin’s feelings are reciprocal, they never have a chance to act on them as they are in the middle of a war.  And I think there is certainly a grain of truth in that.  However, war does not necessarily negate love, if anything it can heighten feelings of devotion, particularly for those who fight side by side.  Sure Erwin and Levi aren’t going to go swanning off on fancy dates, but it’s canon that they spend private time together when they can.  In times of war, love may be reciprocated in the smallest acts, a meal shared together, or the grandest gestures, I will trust you with my life and fight to the death for you.

And I know there is also an argument that Erwin is so focused on his dream that he has no time for anyone or anything else, and that’s certainly the way that Erwin himself sees it latterly.  But as I’ve said over and over again, Erwin is the most unreliable of unreliable narrators. It’s true that Erwin’s dream has always driven him forward, but it’s really only towards the end that it becomes an all encompassing obsession.  Erwin is clearly depressed towards the end of his life, he’s weighed down by guilt, and confesses to suicidal thoughts, however depression and love are not mutually exclusive.  You don’t stop loving someone just because you suffer from depression, even if it means you struggle to express those feelings.  Even if you are in the depths of despair, those feelings are still there, buried deep. I think it’s telling that when Erwin does finally confess his fears and his struggles, it’s Levi that he opens up to. And it speaks volumes that it’s Levi who is able to free him from the burden of guilt he carries. Ask yourself this Anon, would Levi’s words really have had such an impact on Erwin if he didn’t love and respect him? 

Daisuke Ono said in an interview once that the amplitude of Erwin’s feelings is so great that it can be hard to see.  So don’t worry Anon, I’m certain that Erwin did love Levi and I’m certain that Levi knew it, you just have to stand back to see it.

UPDATED TIMELINE OF TAYLOR SWIFT’S SHIFTING LIES

1) kanye west calls taylor swift regarding a song that he is writing and recording. the transcript of that conversation is as follows:

Kanye West: “I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad.”

Taylor Swift: “Umm, yeah I mean go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.”

Kanye West: “Oh yeah, I just had a responsibility to you as a friend you know, and I mean thanks for being so cool about it.”

Taylor Swift: “Aw thanks. Um yeah I really appreciate it, like the heads up is so nice. [inaudible] Even asking or seeing if I would be okay with it and I just really appreciate it. Like I would never expect you to like tell me about a line in one of your songs.”

Kanye West: “Relationships are more important than punch lines, ya know?”

Taylor Swift: “I don’t think anyone would listen to that and be like that’s a real diss she must be crying. You’ve gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. You honestly didn’t know who I was before that. It doesn’t matter that I sold 7 million of that album before you did that which is what happened, you didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine.

Taylor Swift: “And you know, if people ask me about it I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘Look, he called me and told me the line before it came out. Jokes on you guys, We’re fine.‘ You guys want to call this a feud; you want to call this throwing shade but right after the song comes out I’m going to be on a Grammys red carpet and they’re going to ask me about it and I’ll be like, ‘He called me.’ It’s awesome that you’re so outspoken about this and be like, ‘Yeah, she does. It made her famous.’ Its more provocative to say ‘might still have sex…’ It doesn’t matter to me. There’s not like one [line] that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.”

2) kanye west’s song ‘famous’ is released. taylor swift’s first statement to the press is as follows: 

Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.’” 

3) kanye continues to assert that he did call taylor and that she approved of the song.

4) taylor swift’s grammy acceptance speech:

"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there will be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame." 

5) kim kardashian west mentions taylor swift in a magazine article months later and states that there is a video recording of the kanye and taylor conversation. 

6) taylor swift releases another statement trying to reframe her issue as being about the specific word “bitch” in the song:

“Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect… Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that bitch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”

7) kim decides to release the video of the phone conversation between kanye and taylor.

8) taylor swift releases an instagram message:

“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened.” 

CONCLUSION

the above timeline shows that taylor swift has continually tried to reframe her issues with the song. at first she said there was no phone call asking for approval. then she said that he didn’t tell her about the line “i made that bitch famous”. and finally, that he just didn’t tell her about the “that bitch” part of the line. in taylor’s initial statement she said that she cautioned kanye about his misogynistic message, yet she also said that she was never told about him using the word “bitch”. her lies simply don’t add up.

please note that her issue at the grammys was that kanye was trying to take credit for her fame. however as the transcript shows taylor herself stated: “it doesn’t matter that I sold 7 million of that album before you did that which is what happened, you didn’t know who I was before that. it’s fine… i’ll be like, ‘he called me.’ it’s awesome that you’re so outspoken about this and be like, ‘yeah, she does. it made her famous.’” she perhaps more importantly also said: “i would never expect you to like tell me about a line in one of your songs." 

whether you like kanye west or kim kardashian is irrelevant. taylor swift is not the victim in this story, please don’t fall for her manipulations yet again. she lied, that is the truth.

anonymous asked:

i am new to ifnt and rly dont wanna make anyone mad but i don't see the big deal abt woohyun. yes he is hot and can sing but why does every1 love him so much? i dont mean it in a bad way jst that i dont see how he is more popular than others. also i dont see how his voice is so different to other kpop singers? but then again i am new so maybe i dont kno wht i am talking about. pls help me to understand more?

You caught me at the absolute pinnacle of my Woohyun feels, which happens every year around his birthday. And therefore (with a little help from my friends) I have constructed this little list of reasons why Woohyun is absolutely deserving of the amount of love he receives from Inspirits and why it’s kinda hard not to love him, even if he isn’t your favourite member…

1. WOOHYUN’S LIVE VOCALS

Woohyun is known for having what many call a ‘power-house’ vocal. You can always rely on him to hit those incredible high notes in INFINITE songs. He’s known for being able to bellow out his lines; his voice is strong, loud and instantly recognisable. But he also pours a lot of emotion into his vocals, every note dripping with it. His solo album Write.. and his subsequent appearances on Immortal Songs 2 showcased another side to his vocals too; a softer side, gentle, quieter but without lacking that trademark emotion in his voice. It really proved he’s a versatile vocalist, and not just there to yell at the top of his lungs (but it’s still incredible when he does). Here is Woohyun performing on Immortal Songs 2. This appearance earned him the highest score for an idol on the show at that point. 

He is (in my opinion) one of the best live singers in kpop at the moment. I can’t think of many people who could hold a candle to him, really. Yet he is still improving and working on his voice; he still admits he has far to go. 

2. WOOHYUN’S FAN SERVICE / HIS LOVE FOR FANS

Woohyun is known for being the ‘fan idiot’ in INFINITE. He’s got a different heart for every occasion and is usually credited with popularising the ‘finger heart’ that everyone uses nowadays. In 2012 he came 3rd in Weekly Idol’s Fan Service poll (as voted by idols), and the video shows some good examples of him showering Inspirits with love. He consistently refers to fans as his ‘girlfriends’, to the point his twitter bio even says it (팬=여친 fan=girlfriend). But his love for Inspirits runs deeper than superficial hearts and displays of cuteness. INFINITE and Inspirits have had a close relationship since debut, and it has continued on to this day. During One Great Step, INFINITE’s first world tour in 2013/14, Woohyun personally went out to buy roses and small rings to present to fans at their shows, spending his own money. He wrote and composed the song ‘함께 (Together)’ during OGS, and dedicated it to Inspirits, saying it was about fans (see the lyrics here). 

At Dream Concert in 2016, Woohyun performed as a solo artist for the first time, and even other fandoms began to feel jealous at the amount of attention he gave to Inspirits. [Even more reactions here] He sang just for them, never taking his eyes off their section of the crowd and taking out his earpiece to listen to them singing along. Okay, so later all of INFINITE roasted Inspirits for not being able to sing well, but at least Woohyun then tried to explain how to sing properly.

It should be noted too, that after this performance, Woohyun and INFINITE gained a lot of new fans who were impressed by him. 

3. WOOHYUN’S PASSION FOR SINGING / MAKING MUSIC

As I mentioned above, Woohyun wrote and composed ‘함께 (Together)’ for INFINITE while they were taking part in their first world tour. During their movie, Grow, which showed the behind the scenes of OGS, you see Woohyun jumping up in the middle of eating to go and compose. 

He was excited about this song and wanted to share it with the rest of INFINITE once he was finished, asking them to contribute to the lyric writing too. Then his solo album Write.. was released in 2016 with 3/6 tracks having Woohyun’s direct involvement: ‘향기 (Scent/Nostalgia)’ which was entirely written and composed by Woohyun, and ‘Gravity’ and ‘Everyday’ which Woohyun co-wrote and composed [source]. You could tell he had worked extremely hard on these songs, and could tell how proud he was of them when he spoke about them in interviews. Whenever Woohyun takes the stage, you know that the energy and enthusiasm he exudes isn’t just an act… He truly loves singing, is passionate about performing and wants to share his talent with the world. For example, look how stupidly in his element he is performing Everyday in Singapore during INFINITE’s second world tour ( © Honey Tree ) :

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE:

Those were just three main points focused on Woohyun as a singer, performer and idol. There are so many other sides to Woohyun too, and so many reasons to love him. 

  • He loves cooking, and his instagram is full of videos of him making food
  • His relationships with the other INFINITE members are really sweet. Just one recent example would be: even when everyone was teasing Sungjong and being kinda mean (including Woohyun), he did then reassure him that there would be plenty of INFINITE schedules soon and that he needn’t worry. He’s also super affectionate with the others, and you’ll often find him touching them or correcting their hair/touching their face/leaning on them.
  • Actor Woohyun!!! He’s been in multiple dramas, but my personal favourite is Hi School Love On, where he played Shin Woohyun… Please watch it if you haven’t already, it’s so good (and it’s all available on KBSWorld’s youtube channel with subs, here)!
  • His friendships with other 91 line celebrities, especially SHINee’s Key with whom he debuted as the special sub-unit ToHeart in 2014
  • Like you mentioned, he is ridiculously good-looking and is known for not having had any surgery - that nose and that jawline are aaaaallll natural, ladies ~~ 
  • He loves football and plays for FC Men (FC 멘), an all-star team affiliated with the Suwon Bluewings alongside other celebrities. 

My closing statement is this: usually when you stan a group you’ll have a favourite member, one you look at more than the others, one you might pay a little more attention to during MVs or performances or shows. But then often (and in most cases when it comes to my Inspirit friends), you end up loving them all. Your bias might even change (maybe even many times). You’ll find it hard to stick solely to one member, especially when the rest of the group are so damn lovable. Soon enough, you realise you’re OT7 biased and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Do yourself a solid and give Woohyun a chance. I’m sure you’ll see why everyone likes him so much in no time.

anonymous asked:

you think the secret session is a good idea cause you have a chance to go while people who live in another countries know for sure they don't

let me just add all the other anons you sent:

I shouldn’t give these the time of day because you’re on anon but here I go:

I have been a fan for 10 years or so and I’ve run a tumblr blog for 6 years and Taylor followed me two years ago. I have never been invited to anything and yeah there are times it bothers me and I wonder why I’m not good enough to be invited to things. (Which is dumb because Taylor doesn’t look it that way but that’s another rant for another time) I’ve felt jealously. I felt sad and felt like Taylor would never know me and I should give up. I’ve ben annoyed at people who got invited because I didn’t. 

Then this year she started noticing people again after the break and I felt jealousy again. And I felt sad again. And on the first Secret Sessions in London I was so sad because I told myself I would never meet her. On the second Secret Sessions I saw people feeling the same way and I decided I was going to make positive posts and tell people it’s okay to feel this way because everyone else feels that way. The rest of us who aren’t those 300 people feel that way and it’s a completely validated feeling. I did this for a few hours and I refused to post anything negative or reblog negative. In fact when I saw someone say something negative I reblogged a post on how Taylor wants to meet everyone and there is proof. By the next secret session i wasn’t jealous anymore. AND LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS SO NICE. I was so excited for people. Like genuinely excited and it was even better than I had a mutual meet her.

And it’s not like I never wish that was me. I wish it was me all the time. All. The. Time. When I get messages I hope one is from Taylor Nation but it doesn’t happen. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? Never have i wished that those people didn’t get to go. So the fact that you don’t like my blog anymore because I said it was selfish of you to say that no one should get to meet taylor because you cant or a lot of other people can’t is so wrong. I mean by all means unfollow me because I wont put up with that. I have been saying for days that I will validate swifties who are upset about not being invited as long as they don’t send hate. And I will validate the SS fans as long as they don’t send hate. And that’s what I do. In my opinion saying they don’t deserve to meet Taylor because I can’t or you can’t, or anyone else can’t is a round about way to attack them. 

Lastly, if you refuse to see the good in Secret Sessions because you can’t be there I’m not wasting my time in explaining why they’re a good thing. It’s obvious why they’re a good thing but jealousy can really cloud clear judgment. And that’s directed at every person who came to my ask this morning and tried to tell me that it was the SS fan’s fault that they were over hyped over a song. YALL WERE ACTUALLY TRYING TO BLAME OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T LIKE A SONG AS MUCH AS YOU WANTED TO. That’s is so incredibly petty and i’m sorry it would even cross your mind to actually complain. So many of you are so jealous that you would try and tear down other fans and i’m so over it. I tried to let people down easy but now it’s just ridiculous and the fact that you have sent me four messages and one of which called me “ignorant” and you can’t even come off anon to tell me this does not warrant you my patience.

I ALWAYS SAY BEING POSITIVE IS SO FREEING BUT SO IS BEING KIND.

A/N: what a shitty title oh my god hello everyone! I made a post asking to vote three touken prompts that I was planning to write this week. Surprisingly, the aogiri+touken kids was the winner! so here it is. It’s a bit short, I was planning to write it as a headcanon instead but it turned out to be a bit longer, I was running out of ideas and I’m not sure if this is good enough, but it was fun to write anyway. 

thank you all for voting the fic and don’t worry if the one you wanted didn’t win, i will be writing those very soon! excuse any grammar mistakes&enjoy! <3

Preview:

“You have to hug Onii-chan for ten seconds!”

Kaneki coughs, touching the back of his head.

“W-What?”

One of the boys drags the girl by the arm, trying to stop her.

“I told you this was a bad id—”

“You have to hug!” she ignores her friend and walks towards Touka, pushing her from the back against Kaneki.

“A-Ah! Wait!”

Interactive Introverts Warsaw (matinee show) highlights

About the show (some of those are probably not specific for the Poland show but I tried to avoid spoilers from other countries so yeah)

- they tried to say “good morning” and “hi” in polish and it came out as “dżen dobry” and “szeszcz” (which I’m sure none of you can read but well, it means something for polish folks),

- they ate pierogi before the show (they even said “piegori”, not “pierogis”, which was unexpected),

- we planned to sing Dan a “Happy Birthday” at some point but Phil brought Dan’s bday up at the very beggining of the show and so we sang it first in english, then in polish (it was pretty out of sync and by the time one half of us finished singing, the other still had like 4 lines to go. They said it was great and the english version had to watch out, though),

- “Any last words?” “Dad.”,

- “Smite me daddy”,

- at one point Phil said “yee” to himself and some people in the audience responded with another “yee”. Dan asked us if we really think we’re that great at yee?? “Watch this”, and he proceeded to singing the whole song with Phil, leaving it for the audience to do the final “yee”. He then went to the back of the stage to cover his face with his hands and laugh.

- Dan failed to take one of the shoe-covering thingie (the one he wore with the jumpsuit for the Dan Sacrifice part) and only noticed it during the part when he and Phil were answering some questions from the survey.

- every complaint Dan had was followed by (it shouldn’t be like that cause)“it’s my birthday”,

- “Phil’s cactus Loki? He dead. He is dead af”,

- the mystery box under Dan’s bed contained Dan’s furry boyfriend, Dan’s phone and a bodypillow,

- Dan commented the fact that he supposedly kept his bf in a tiny box with “in this box? He dead af”,

- Dan actually did wear the birthday hat for the whole first part of the show and the begging of the second one. He took it off while undressing from the white jumpsuit and got annoyed when everyone got disappointed (because we’ve picked him for the sacrifice and were all happy abt it and Now we are disappointed??),

- while Dan was taking off the jumpsuit on stage and Phil was talking, some people started cheering and wouldn’t stop until he got behind the prop chest to change,

- “No, I don’t need your help undressing, Phil”,

- the metal shooting target apparently didn’t fit through the door? so they had a handmade one which Dan said was made by him and was the real danandphilcrafts example. He tore it after the bit was finished,

- we actually got to see the good ending of Phil’s simulation (Phil starts a band with BTS and Harry Styles). Dan still died in the underground furry rave bathroom, though.

- “during job interviews, ask a lot of questions to show you’re engaged!” (this one’s not a joke, it’s, to quote Dan, “actual good advice” and I just found it really nice),

Not about the show itself (organisation, meet and greet, just some general observations about the vwnue and people):

- okay so I have this question I ask everybody, which is “which Fiona is prettier, the human one or the ogre one?”. It’s not even for jokesies, I’m really interested in why people would ever say the human one. Fortunately, D&Pboth answered ogre (“it’s who she is on the inside!”),

- i went to the m&g with two friends and we were really not feeling like being on a photo ourselves and so two of us took polaroid pictures of only the boys to get them signed. But they said they’re not letting us leave without a group photo (which was actually super sweet) so we got one with all of us as well.

- the merch tables were being set up downstairs and the m&g took place upstairs. The problem was, though, that the toilets at the venue are located downstairs and there only. And so no one could actually use them until the set up the merch tables (so until people with regular tickets started to line up).

- i don’t know how it looks like at II, but when I went to TATINOF, the VIP merch bags were given to us right after the m&g. But this time we actually had to leave the venue without them and then come back before the show started and talk to staff to get the VIP packages? It wasn’t even announced that we had to talk to the person. I only found out about it by asking someone who had the vip bag already.

- there were some people wrapped in flags. Rainbow flag, trans flag and well Ukraine flag apparently.

All in all, I had a great time with some friends and the boys, would come again!

Fake Nice

90s Best friend Ash AU

This is loosely based off Fake Nice by The Aces

Word Count: 1520

From your first memories, Ashton Fletcher was there. The first memorable one being the day you all met at the park when you were four years old. Swinging on the swings, you decided it would be a great idea to jump off, seeing how far you could go. The bright idea ended up with you having a large gash in your knee. The moment you hit the ground, a small, curly haired boy ran over to check up on you, leaving his mom with no choice to run up as well. From then on, you became the best of friends, sticking by each other through the rough period of your parents divorce, to skipping out on prom to have a movie marathon, to current day where he’s working at a record shop and in a garage band, and you continuing your school career, three and a half years into college.

You were lounging around the basement of Ashton’s coworker, Luke, while they practiced their songs. “Guys, we gotta make this perfect, they’ll realize if we hit the wrong notes or mess up the rhythm,” Ashton said while pinching the bridge of his nose. They were practicing for an upcoming gig, nervous being the first bar gig on a Saturday night. They were trying to make it big, following the grunge scene of the early 90s, all amicably agreeing that it wasn’t over yet. Although you agreed, you also agreed with the new millennia coming up, the 2000s were going to bring something new to the rock scene.

Their practice continued until Ashton’s Nokia started blaring, startling everyone. Ashton quickly apologized, grabbing his phone with a big smile, “Sorry, it’s Allie, gotta take this real quick,” grabbing his phone, stepping out of the room.

Calum, one of his band mates, threw his body down next to yours on the couch and rolled his eyes, “I don’t even see why we have to keep practicing if Anna is gonna keep on calling.”

“Allie,” you spoke with raised eyebrows.

“What?”

“Her name is Allie,” you gave him a questioning look. From what you knew, everyone in the band tolerated Allie and were okay with being around her.

“It doesn’t matter, she’s a snake and I only put up with her for Irwin’s sake. I still believe you’re the only one who should be allowed to interrupt us,” he snorted, putting his arm around me, on the back of the couch.

“Oh?” you said with a questioning look.

“Don’t act like you like her either. You’re easy to read, the other may be oblivious, but I can tell you don’t like her, either.” You just pursed your lips and shrugged in response. Although he was correct, you were just hoping he didn’t know the reason. Somewhere in the last few months, you realized you had feelings for the dimpled, hazel-eyed boy. Not sure if him dating Allie made me realize, but you were more than willing to keep the thoughts to myself. You weren’t ready to throw away a 17 year friendship for a love that wouldn’t be returned.

“Alright, alright, I’m back. Sorry about that, let’s get back to it.” Ashton all but shouted when he walked back in, immediately heading towards his drum kit.

~~

The bustling traffic of New York City made time fly by faster as you were walking to the bar they were performing at. You were told to go in and ask for the lounge and give one of the guy’s names to the bouncer. As soon as you got there, you did what you were told, being immediately led to a small room behind the side of the stage. When you walked in, all of the guys were doing different things, mostly tuning their instruments, while Ashton sat on the provided loveseat with Allie in his lap.

“(Y/N/N)!” Ashton shouted using a nickname he made for you after learning your middle name in the second grade.

"Hey, Fletch,” you smiled in return, walking over to the other open chair in the room, “So are ya guys excited? It’s fucking packed out there!”

“Hell yeah, we are, (Y/N)!” Michael, the lead guitarist, smirked.

“I’m glad you could make it! Allie’s friend Kristen couldn’t make it, so now she has someone to st—” Ashton was cut off by the owner of the bar coming out to tell them they had a minute to set. They all hurriedly got there instruments ready to go, before walking out.

Before he could make it out of the threshold of the door, you pulled Ashton in for a hug, “kick some ass out there, Fletch.”

You continued walking, with Allie on your trail. You found your place in the crowd, a spot, further back, but where you could still see them perform.

“Honestly, I don’t know why they invited you to come in the lounge. You just made the room more crowded that it should’ve been,” Allie mumbled with a scoff.

“You know, they all enjoy my presence, unlike you. You do realize that even if Ashton doesn’t, I see right through your bullshit, right?”

“Oh, then why was he gushing about how much all the guys would rather have me around?” She said matter-of-factly. You just looked at her with raised eyebrows, nodded and walked to the bar. You knew she was just saying shit to try to rile you up.

“Two shots of your strongest tequila,” you shouted over the boys who were playing the first song. The bartender nodded, handing you back your card and began to pour your drinks. You quickly took the shots, making a b-line for the door. Two could play at that game. You figured, if she didn’t want around, you’d give her the satisfaction of leaving, just to rip it back from her when one of the guys next asked you to come to the next show.

As you walked to the train station, you began to cry. How could a girl come in between your years long friendship. A boy you shared your first kiss with, to the guy who promised to beat up any guy who hurt you in the future. From his distance, to when you were all hanging out and he did nothing but talk to her on the phone, or him canceling plans to be with her because “she needed” him. The crushing feeling you felt on your heart was taking a toll on you.

~~

About three hours later, a pounding occurred outside of your apartment while you were watching a rerun of FRIENDS, you ignorned it, thinking it was thunder. As you go back to watching the episode, it happened again. Getting up to answer, Ashton was standing there, soaking wet from the rainstorm that started moving through within the last hour.

“Why the hell did you leave, (Y/N/N)?” Ashton asked storming into your living room. Glaring at you, all whilst panting from running to your apartment from the subway entrance.

“She didn’t want me there,” you simply stated, handing him a towel from the back of the chair, “I’ll be right back, I’m gonna get you a change of clothes.” Thanking the gods above that he had left night clothes from the past times he’d stayed over after movie night.

“That doesn’t mean you needed to leave, it never does,” he said, laying the clothes on the table and turning to stare at you.

“Sorry, but I’m not going to be somewhere I’m not wanted. It’s not fair to me. Or to the snake,” You quickly covered your mouth, clenching your eyes out of embarrassment.

“Snake, huh?” Ash chuckled with a raised eyebrow, “Never knew you felt that way about her, buttercup.”

Taking in a a deep breath, you realized this was it. The realization of what was going to come out of you mouth dawning on you, as you said it without another thought, “I don’t like her Fletch, and it may have to do with the fact that I care about you and that I’m in love with you and I want the bes—” he cut me off by putting a hand over my mouth.

“What’d you just say?” You suddenly became aware of every feature his face was showing. The clenching of his jaw, the way his eyes glimmered in the light of my small red lamp, the proximity of his fingers lingering on my face.

“I said I care for you and I want the best for you,” You replied, practically stuttering.

“I broke up with her, y'know.”

“What? Why? If she makes you happy, you shouldn’t let any—”

“Shut up, buttercup, I wasn’t finished. I broke up with her because she wasn’t enough. She would never be enough. I only got with her to get over you.” He spoke quietly.

“I…what?”

“I’m saying I’m in love with you, too.” You just grabbed him by the collar of his still wet shirt and pushed your lips against his.

After a few a minutes of kissing you, he pulled away and whispered, “I am so fucking in love with you, buttercup.”

(A/N: so I haven’t written for 5SOS, let alone anyone or anything, in a long while, so feedback would be much appreciated! Once apon a time, I wrote a few imagines back when I still had my old blog, which since has been deleted. Anyways, I had so much fun writing this, so I hope you all enjoy it as well!)

Garrett and Marian - Legacy Banters
  • Marian: Well... not quite how I imagined this family reunion going. I was envisioning more hugs and maybe some wine over dinner. Not attempted assassinations
  • Carver: Really? You think this is so abnormal for our family?
  • Marian: Well you got me there
  • ---
  • Bethany: What could our father have to do with this mess? The Carta have had more than enough time to try and find us
  • Garrett: I imagine that having two Champions of Kirkwall with the last name Hawke may have tipped them off
  • Bethany: But it's been three years since you and sis defeated the Arishok. Why wait that long?
  • Marian: Well I don't know about you, but if I was going to go after the people who killed an Arishok then I'd probably want to make a little time for planning, wouldn't you?
  • Carver: Do these morons strike you as the sensible type?
  • Marian: Two points in one day Carver? Don't tell me the Templars are actually drilling some wit into that skull of yours
  • Carver: *laughs* At least /my/ wit makes a point, dear sister
  • Bethany: Ooh, that had to hurt
  • Garrett: Do you need some healing for that one, Marian?
  • Marian: Oh shove off, all of you
  • ---
  • Garrett: And we're back in the Deep Roads
  • Marian: Oh it's not that bad. I mean... Look at all the... Ugh, no, you're right this is terrible. Let's all promise never to go to the Deep Roads after this. Three times is enough
  • Garrett: Three times? When was the second?
  • Marian: Um... well...
  • Carver and Bethany: *sing song voices* Somebody's in trouble
  • ---
  • Bethany: Varric wrote to me the other day
  • Garrett: Telling another of his stories, I bet. Was it the one about the high dragon, because that didn't really-
  • Bethany: No. He was giving me an update. On you, actually. I was... worried, so I wrote to him and asked
  • Garrett: I'm fine Beth. Really
  • Bethany: No you're not. Not yet. But I know you, and if anyone can get past it, you can
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • ---
  • Carver: You might want to be watch yourself, Garrett
  • Garrett: How come?
  • Carver: Ever since you sided with Orsino the other day, there's been... Rumours. Meredith isn't happy with you, and it's only because she allows it that you're still free
  • Garrett: So is she going to have me dragged to the Circle, or is she getting the Brand ready now?
  • Fenris: Don't say that
  • Carver: I would never let it get that far. But I thought I'd warn you, just in case you were thinking about making her mad
  • Garrett: I appreciate you telling me Carver. Don't worry. I'll be careful
  • ---
  • *after completing Malcolm's Will*
  • Marian: So... the stonework down here is... lovely, isn't it?
  • Carver: Not now, Mary
  • Marian: I was only... Alright
  • ---
  • Marian: Are you okay, Gary?
  • Garrett: I'm fine... Just...
  • Marian: He loved you. And Bethany. He'd be so proud of you
  • Garrett: You sound so sure of that
  • Marian: Of course I am. Because it's true. And don't let that nasty shit in your head tell you otherwise - it's a liar, remember
  • Garrett: *chuckles* Alright
  • Bethany: Be careful sister, people might think you've got a heart after all
  • Marian: *dramatically* Oh no! *clutches chest* I think... I think I'm getting feelings! Quick, someone beat them out of me!
  • Carver: *laughs* You be careful what you wish for sister
  • Isabela: I'd rather ride them out of you
  • Garrett: Ah, and there's the dirty line. I was starting to worry something was wrong Bela
  • Isabela: And you're as sweet as ever, Garrett
  • ---
  • Varric: Twenty silvers, that's my final offer. Take it or leave it Elf
  • Marian: What are you betting on, and why am I getting left out of it?
  • Varric: You want in? We're betting on what it'll take to get Junior and Waffles to hug
  • Garrett: *groans* You're not calling me 'Waffles' again, are you?
  • Varric: I have to. Every time I say 'Hawke' all four of you turn around. I'm being considerate
  • Carver: I bet there's /someone/ here who'd like to see him covered in syrup
  • Garrett: Carver!
  • Fenris: *embarrassed noises*
  • Isabela: Ooh, new friend-fiction idea!
  • Garrett: Don't you even dare!
  • Isabela: Too late, already dared. Can we make camp? I need to make notes
  • ---
  • Varric: Hey, Rivaini, I'm expecting royalties if that friend-fiction of yours gets published
  • Carver: When you didn't even come up with it?
  • Varric: You wouldn't have brought up syrup if I didn't call him Waffles
  • Garrett: Maker save me...
  • Bethany: And me...
  • Marian: Usually I like dirty things... But this is too far, even for me
  • Isabela: Are you saying you wouldn't like it if /I/ were covered in syrup?
  • Marian: Oh I'm sorry. I didn't realise you were my very hairy twin brother, Bela
  • Isabela: Well when you put it that way...
  • ---
  • Isabela: I always thought we were the loud ones, you know
  • Fenris: What?
  • Marian: I know right. Maybe they're just less shy about it now
  • Garrett: Do I want to know?
  • Isabela: You already know. Or did you deafen yourself?
  • Marian: To think, they don't need us shouting encouragement through the wall anymore. I'm so proud
  • Isabela: Our boys are growing up so fast. Maybe next they'll master foreplay
  • Carver: Oh Maker, I do not want to hear this
  • Bethany: Neither do I
  • Garrett: *loudly* And I would be very happy if we could stop talking about this. Right now
  • Isabela: Yeah, see. That kind of loud
  • Fenris: *deadpan* If you're so fascinated by Garrett being loud, then you must not be doing a very good job at making Marian scream, Isabela
  • Marian: Oooooooo
  • Isabela: Oh, you snarky little shit
  • Bethany: *loudly* If we could stop discussing my older brother's and sister's sex lives, I would appreciate it
  • Carver: *loudly* Oh look, more darkspawn. Let's kill them so we can stop talking about this
  • ---
  • Marian: So our choices are the nice, Tainted madman, or the mage who wants to let a darkspawn magister out of his hole in the ground? Why can we never make nice decisions, like what kind of wine to have with dinner?
  • Fenris: I agree. It is the only decision worth making
  • Marian: When you're not throwing it at the walls, I assume?
  • Fenris: That was six years ago
  • Marian: And you never offered me a glass
  • Fenris: You are recycling jokes now? Has the great Marian Hawke's wit finally lost it's edge?
  • Marian: Ooh, you are just asking for it now
  • ---
  • Varric: You okay Garrett? You've been a bit quiet since-
  • Garrett: I'm fine Varric. There's more important things to be worried about right now
  • Varric: It's not easy to realise that someone you looked up to wasn't quite what you imagined. You ever need to talk, you know where my suite is
  • ---
  • Isabela: So... is no one going to bring up the fact that Varric called Garrett by his name earlier?
  • Varric: What are you talking about Rivaini? Waffles and I were just having a friendly chat
  • Isabela: Don't bullshit me. You called him Garrett. I heard you
  • Varric: That doesn't sound like me, Rivaini
  • Marian: He called you by your name when Velasco carted you off to Castillon
  • Isabela: What?! No fair, I didn't get to hear!
  • ---
  • Bethany: Are you sure about this, brother?
  • Garrett: It has to be done
  • Bethany: I could do it. I am a Hawke after all, and a mage. You don't need to-
  • Garrett: No, Bethany
  • Bethany: But-!
  • Garrett: Bethy, if I let you use blood magic, I'd never be able to live with myself
  • Bethany: And if you do it, will you be able to live with it?
  • Garrett: I'd rather it be me than you
  • ---
  • Varric: If he pulls a dragon out of his ass, I'm leaving!
  • Marian: Oh great, and now he's almost certain to pull a dragon out of his arse! Way to go Varric
  • ---
  • Bethany: Here, you didn't get a chance to close that wound earlier
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • Fenris: I just hope it was worth it
  • Marian: Well we /did/ just kill a darkspawn magister. I can't wait to hear how Varric tells this one

Please make it angsty until the very end!! Thank you xx

“You are too damn cute.”

The entire table goes silent.

Bright blue eyes widen in shock and Lance’s spoon clatters against his own plate of green go. It is only then that Keith blinks in confusion as he takes his eyes away from Lance’s frozen form and meets the rest of the team across the table.

A tick passes and then, “Did I say that out loud?”

That’s enough to bring the table back to life.

Both Pidge and Hunk as leaning forward, holding into each other desperately as tears fall from their eyes, big grins matching their laughter.

Shiro’s is trying so hard to maintain his posture for his little brother’s sake but soon enough he’s chuckling uncontrollably along with Allura who just keeps giggling behind her hand.

Coran on the other hand, just looks quite pleased with the situation and his eyes have that glowing touch of amusement.

Keith doesn’t dare to look at Lance.

“Uh…” Keith says dumbly, feeling the way Lance’s eyes are staring right into his soul, “I’m gonna go now.”

He doesn’t wait for anything else. In a tick he’s up and gone from the dining area and he’s practically jogging away like a coward.

“Oh, God.” He whispers horrified, still feeling the burning sensation of his blush at the tip of his ears, “Oh God. Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no.”

He allows himself a break once he feels safe enough from his team’s prying eyes and then he’s leaning against the wall, panting hard as he tries to control his breathing.

“Why did I say that?” He whispers in horror before whining, “Oh my god, what the fuck did I just say?”

“That I’m too cute.” A voice on his right answers him and Keith whips his head so quick that Lance winces at the crack it makes.

“Careful.” Lance chimes, frowning in concern before he gestures Keith’s right side, asking for permission silently with his eyes.

Keith can only stare in surprise and embarrassment before he nods slowly and then Lance’s sitting beside him, knees pulled up as he stares at the big window in front of them.

While Lance’s soft eyes admire the sight beyond the window, Keith admires the brunet’s profile.

Keith resists the urge to clutch his chest at the sight. He has always thought that Lance has the kind of beauty that is easily visible. It’s in everything he does: his laugh, his smile, his jokes, his bright eyes, his determination, his selflessness, his loyalty, his passion and kindness.

But there’s also a quiet beauty in him. It appears right in front of Keith at the moment when Lance’s smile turns soft and his eyes take a tender look on them that it makes Keith to skip a beat.

He can’t look away. He wants to freeze the moment and stare at Lance’s soft expression for eternity. He wonders what he could be staring at.

Maybe it was the stars that float just outside the window, or maybe it was the sight of pace itself and the eerie beauty it brought with it.

“It’s you.” Lance whispers softly out of the sudden and Keith eyes widen in surprise and he curses his mouth in his mind before he looks towards the window and see their clear reflection on it.

Lance’s eyes staring right at him through the window.

“Hi.” Lance waves, still facing forward and smiling big when Keith facepalms himself.

“Oh, God.” Keith whines, dropping his face on his hands in embarrassment and he feels his blush coming back full force as Lance laughs softly besides him.

“You’re too damn cute, Keith.” Lance says, smiling amusedly as he grabs the other teen’s hand and pulls him closer, “You dork, we have been dating for three weeks.”

“Shut up.” Keith says, voice muffled as he presses his face against Lance’ chest and the brunet wraps his arms tight around him.

“God, you’re just the cutest, I swear. You are almost the same color of your lion –”

“Stop.”

“I can make a list of why you are cute, babe, like –”

Keith’s sudden whine cuts him off and Lance smirks.

“Babe.” He sing songs and feels Keith squirm in his arms.

“No.”

“Keithy baby.”

“Lance, I swear to –”

“Cutie pie.”

“Oh my god, Lance –”

“Smol fluff of grumpiness.”

“I hate you.” Keith deadpans, pulling away to glare at his boyfriend but Lance just smiles, leaning forward and nuzzling his nose against Keith fondly.

“Sure you do, corazón.” Lance says lovingly, effectively making Keith’s heart to stop.

The brunet hums softly before bumping his forehead against Keith’s and then dropping a sweet kiss on his cheek. “Come on now, we’re missing Movie Night with the rest and I won’t allow Pidge and Hunk to put us through another Altean Opera.”

Keith chuckles softly, his cheeks still covered in a faint pink color before he smiles brightly at his boyfriend and tightens his hold on Lance’s hand.

“Okay, ae-in.

anonymous asked:

really i don't understand why kokopoop is selling this much that song is boring and it's not hype? you guys could just be making this up i wont be surprised >:// exo is nothing too compared to big groups like bts who write their own songs? that is talent >:)) your loser biases will drown on bts dust like the old smelly geezers they are

*pops knuckles one by one*

okay anon, first of all it is kokobop not kokopoop. it has earned four weeks at the number one spot on Gaon digital charts, 718,162 digital download on its fifth week, and is currently #1 on lots and lots and lots of charts - i don’t think it deserves to be called poop. again with this pathetic name insults - this is why i dont deal with five year olds ://

next, a song being “hype” is not a basis for a song to be called good or amazing. people aren’t always into those head bangin sweat inducing heart rate pumping kind of songs okay. we have our own preferences and we are supposed to respect those preferences (which you clearly have not good luck explaining yourself to more than a million people streaming and listening to kokobop in the last month)

AND PLEASE!!! we aren’t making this up JESUS CHRIST!! WE DON’T HAVE TO MAKE THINGS UP!! EXO ARE FEEDING US WITH THINGS TO CELEBRATE ABOUT WE DON’T NEED TO STOOP DOWN INTO THAT LEVEL LMAO. EVERY SINGLE INFO POSTS HAVE LEGIT SOURCES SO GRAB YOUR GLASSES AND START READING //FACTS// BEFORE WHINING IN MY ASK BOX.

also if your faves write their own songs, then good for them! they did well! yes that is talent and yes they are amazing artists - but hold your reigns little miss my-faves-are-better-than-yours-coz-apparently-i-think-only-my-faves-write-their-own-songs exo does too. wonderful wonderful tracks like she’s dreaming, lose control, heaven, lightsaber (the rap part was written by pcy) are all written by the members and let’s not forget the anthem of the fandom promise cause i still cry whenever i hear that and yes they composed and wrote it all. they also took part in writing the lyrics of their b-side tracks so i don’t know what you mean with your faves being better because they write their own songs because mine does too?? and they are still breaking records on top of all that so.

and hon, writing songs isn’t the only measure of one’s talents okay, not in the real world. just don’t.

lmao GEEZERS??? OLD????? our men are aging like fine wine sweetie, have you seen them cause hell yeah. i don’t ever see their ages being an inferiority or anything. your faves ages too okay it’s a normal part of life they teach us this in school come on. 

so all in all, i dont understand why you felt the need to send this to me cause i am clearly just celebrating the fact that my biases have accomplished something great. i am in no way degrading your faves UNLIKE WHAT YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW. also like what my friends say, if you don’t think my group is not a threat to your fave’s success then why the effin hell are you in my ask box saying all these?

people throw rocks at things that shine, wow i guess exo is blinding you right now so you decided to come and visit me, an exo blog, to try and drag them down? honey, sweetie, no. just no. maybe some other time. but no.

anonymous asked:

Can you explain why people think taylor is bi/gay and why gorgeous is a lesbian anthem? I'm not trying to be mean I just truly don't get it

i cannot explain why people think taylor is bisexual or gay, because whatever i happen to believe, i don’t feel comfortable discussing it on my blog. it’s her sexuality, and just as i feel wildly uncomfortable with people on this website telling strangers that i identify my sexuality one way, when what they are telling others is, in fact, incorrect, i imagine taylor might feel the same kind of discomfort. yes, sometimes i’ll call her something like a bisexual queen, but to find theories/“evidence”/speculation about her sexuality, you’ll have to go to a kaylor blog, and they should be willing to explain if you ask as nicely as you just did to me!

i called “gorgeous” a bisexual anthem, and i’m willing to break it down for you. a lot of non-straight swift fans have also expressed that they feel thing song is gay or a bisexual anthem, so please don’t think it’s just me feeling this way! and please, before anyone thinks i am saying that taylor herself wrote this song as a bisexual anthem, that is not what i mean. i mean that non-heterosexual listeners can identify with this song and apply it to the experiences they have, and that’s all. likewise, heterosexual listeners can enjoy the song and apply it to their experiences as well! that’s the beauty of it!

so, to begin, as a general statement that i wrote in an earlier post upon first hearing the song, i said:

“gorgeous” is a true reflection of the closeted bisexual dilemma, especially if you’re in a relationship with a guy and then realize you’re kinda in love with one of your lady “friends”

now let’s break this down.

You know that feeling when you’ve cried so much that you’re kinda numb- still sad but exhausted from all the tears? That’s where I’m at right now. I went to bed at 12:30am and woke up 3am to watch the last concert. It ended hours ago but I’m still here, weepy and posting pics, trying to avoid anymore fancams bc of the crying but I still wanted to share my aforementioned thoughts on this ridiculously emotional concert.

  • firstly, cube had better give us the full concert again bc I don’t know why Our Concert didn’t get made into a DVD but dammit, this better be. a number of melodies had problems with the stream too so it’s the least they can do.
  • looking back, I’m very satisfied with the setlist bc this could’ve easily been a 3+ hr cry fest if it weren’t for the stages by penjae, ilhoon, minhyuk, the rapline and that brilliant reenactment of their debut showcase runway (which is from henceforth, the stuff of legends 🙌)
  • donggeun’s hairstyle of choice today. sigh. he’s adorable anyway so it’s fine lol.
  • eunkwang sneezing during their “when it rains” performance XD i’m gonna miss that bunny so much.
  • oh and about “when it rains”, I love that the four of them dressed differently each day with it culminating in them wearing their mv outfits ^^
  • MOCHI BABY CRYING IN THE MIDDLE OF “AT THE END” 😭😭😭
  • speaking of mochi baby, him putting his arm around eunkwang during “someday” was also 😭 of all the members, they’ve known each other the longest so I can only imagine how difficult this must be for changsub.
  • the transition between changsub’s stage to ilhoon’s was hilarious. melodies were still crying over “at the end” and had just begun their LEE CHANGSUB chant when 5 seconds later, “big wave” began. “LEE CHANGSUB LEE CHANGSUB LEE CHANGS- oh uhhh *cheers for ilhoon’s stage*” 😂
  • ilhoon should only ever open his solo performances by coming in on either a giant golden lion or a throne. nothing else would do.
  • how freaking good was penjae’s duet? pretty freaking good. it’s something that needs to be watched not just listened to bc sungjae’s dancing y'all.
  • although I prefer the song hyunsik did the first 2 days (“a song for you” by donny hathaway) while playing piano, I love that he did a different stage where he could play guitar instead. I love a supremely multi talented man 💗
  • I think I’ve said this already but “all day” is my favorite song from minhyuk’s solo album so I was THRILLED he performed it all 3 days. I’m a little surprised he never took his shirt off (he tried to unbutton it on day 1 but couldn’t get the top button undone XD naturally) but it’s a fabulous stage nonetheless 👌
  • the rapline furries. yeah.
  • other than the last 30 minutes, I cried the most during “someday” and “it’s okay”. The VCR preceding “it’s okay” hit me right in the feels especially when they ended it with ‘be it the past, the present, or the future, I love you’ 😥
  • they let the fans sing most of “it’s okay” ╥_╥ and afterwards sungjae asked if melodies were okay and while everyone said yes, I was like “NO, ASS, I’M NOT OKAY 😭😭😭” lol
  • the messages eunkwang left for melodies after each of his stunning performances = 😭😭😭 I’m gonna miss his angelic voice and his bright smile and his kind, kind heart and his loud laughter and his aegyo (fly or otherwise) so damn much. he even saluted the crowd ╥_╥
  • as for the last 30 minutes or so of the concert- everything from the ending ment to their final farewells, it was straight sobbing.
  • im hyunsik got choked up and I started losing it especially when he was thanking each of the members and paused to compose himself before saying “eunkwang hyung” ╥_╥ a melody mentioned how much hyunsik will probably miss eunkwang bc of how much he leans on him and I look at them holding hands tightly while hitting that epic high note during “our concert” then hugging and I can’t help but feel for my brave, tough guy who never gets emotional bc it must be so hard on him ESPECIALLY when you consider that they only just recently stopped living together and now he won’t get to see him regularly as he has for the past 6+ yrs. look at how much time the two of them have spent together this year - from going to law of the jungle together to doing that OST duet for that chinese drama. I mean, hyunsik’s losing his princess after all 💔
  • can we stop for a sec to appreciate the fact that sungjae FINALLY said I love you to the fans? he would only say I like you bc he didn’t want to take responsibility (lol) but he finally did it. baby boy’s all grown up now, even asking melodies to make btob the first concert they take their kids to one day bc btob will still be together and happily performing then too 😭
  • THERE IS EVIDENCE OF AN ANGEL CRYING. JUNG ILHOON IS NOT IMMUNE TO EMOTIONS. HE CRIED TOO.
  • the news of minhyuk enlisting next month is no real surprise but I’m glad he gave some advance notice. we’re losing both mom and dad so soon 😭
  • so btob’s surprise for minkwang was an impromptu birthday celebration for them seeing as how they won’t get the chance to be together in november. frickin sungjae made each of them a cake and for all the grief he gave melodies for crying at various points during the concert, he. was. SOBBING at this point. even though I laughed, my heart broke for him. he’s my son, after all and seeing him cry tugs at my heart 😥
  • when eunkwang broke down and kept asking why the fans were crying while he himself cried more and minhyuk had to console him, I absolutely lost it. I was ugly sobbing central. they all did their best to keep it all in the first two concerts then let it all out today. my babies.
  • THAT GROUP HUG WHERE THEY LIFTED UP EUNKWANG 😭😭😭
  • they added “yejiapsa” to the setlist but everyone was still busy crying so for the most part, all you heard was the instrumental and melodies crying.
  • they still managed to crowbar “shake it” amidst all the sadness which was 🤣 who knew you could cry AND shake your booty at the same time.
  • I’m disappointed “1, 2, 3” was the only song from This Is Us that they didn’t perform but I’m not surprised given the lyrics. it doesn’t exactly fit with the theme of the concert :P but I was really hoping to hear hyunsik do his thing.
  • oh and changsub said he’s enlisting soon as well, probably by the beginning of next yr if not the end of this yr. I can’t believe we’re about to be down to 4 so soon ╥_╥ most of the focus was on eunkwang and this being his last concert with them but it was the last for minhyuk and changsub too. ugh.
  • my beloved babies. I have more I want to say about and to them but this is already stupidly long so I’ll save it for the 21st.

anonymous asked:

Headcanon. Archie is the first person Veronica tells about her feelings for Betty idk I just feel like it would be a thing where she's ranting at him and says something about how it's so fucked up that people like people who don't like them back and he's thinking 'betty isn't even mad at me for not liking her back anymore but you're still mad at me for her' until Veronica gets real sad and says something like I just want her to love me or something and he realizes that she likes Betty but idk

So I took this ask as a prompt and wrote a little one shot based off of it.

I wrote this at 2 am so it’s kinda rough but I still hope you like it.

————–

His day had started off well enough; early morning football practice, which wasn’t really all that great, hadn’t it been for the fact that a great new melody for one of his songs had popped into his head.

Humming the tune as he walked through the halls, he was stopped dead in his tracks at the sight of Veronica Lodge at the end of the hallway; clearly out for blood. Just as he was about to turn the other way to escape her wrath, he heard her shout out to him.

So much for that plan.

As he turned around he saw Veronica walk towards him with a fire in her step that showed that she meant business. And here he had thought this was going to be a good day. Stupid.

“Archie Andrews! Don’t think I didn’t see you.”

He had only hoped.

“I need to talk to you actually, Ronnie, but can we please go somewhere else?” He said defeatedly. Knowing damn well that if Veronica wanted something, she was going to get it.

She glared at him suspiciously but followed him to the music room, which was surprisingly empty for once.

“This better be good because I’m about to go off on you in about two minutes” she said, crossing her arms in defiance.

“Whatever you’re going to say about me and Betty, I know, okay?” He said, sitting down in front of the piano. “I’m a douchebag for stringing her along and hurting her just because I was too blind to see that my best friend has a crush on me.”

“So whatever you have to say, save it.” He looked down at the keys. “I’ve already told her I’m sorry a million times, and she has forgiven me! No hard feelings.” He dared to look up at her but her face was unreadable.

“Are you done?” She said, looking unimpressed.

“Yes.” He was.

“Betty stood at my door crying Archie! No, sobbing actually, because you rejected her for being ‘too perfect for you’.” Veronica said to him accusingly. “Who even uses that lame old ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ excuse anymore?”

He did apparently. “Look Ronnie, I know you’re mad at me and all, but you haven’t talked to me in two weeks and now you suddenly come at me out of nowhere.”

“Betty has moved on, why can’t you?” He asked her gently.

She looked at him for a while before sitting down next to him by the piano. Laying her head on his shoulder and sighing deeply.

He looked at her; careful to not make any sudden movements that would disturb her from her thoughts, seeing not quite anger, but sadness reflected in her eyes.

“I just know how much it sucks when someone you like doesn’t like you back. I don’t wish that feeling on anyone. Especially not Betty.” Veronica finally answered, her voice having lost all the fire it once held.

Archie put his arm around her then, feeling her completely deflate against him. He knew there was something he wasn’t seeing. A piece of the puzzle he was missing; but he couldn’t put his finger on what it was.

“I’m sorry for being angry at you Arch.” She said. “It just seems hardly fair when you love someone so much but they are completely oblivious.” He felt her words vibrating against his chest.

Suddenly, it clicked.

“You’re in love with Betty…” He says hesitantly.

Veronica is silent for a long while then, letting the sentence hang between them, making the air feel thick with unspoken thoughts. Because even though her face showed no sign of discomfort, he felt her heart rapidly thudding against his shoulder.

She looks up at him with a sad smile on her face.

“I’m in love with Betty.” She finally says, sounding so certain that he almost doesn’t believe that she came to that conclusion just a few seconds ago. Just like that, it was as clear as night and day. Veronica was in love with Betty just like the earth revolves around the sun, as sure as the currents of the sea.

“But that doesn’t matter.” She says, looking up at him “Because I’m in love with Betty and she’s in love with you.”
