Jensen is an incredibly good sport. I confirmed he was consenting to sign these–apparently it’s like the third or fourth pair!–and he was honestly amused (aaaand a little bemused) that #underbear is now a Thing.
His response? A grin, and then:
He then proceeds to seriously ask me if I’ve tried them before (the underwear, not this specific pair) and when I say I have, he’s like, they’re comfy, right?
At this point, to the facepalming of his handler and the smirk of the bodyguard, he pulls out the waistband of the pair he’s wearing. Brief chat about the pattern ensues.
I thank him for his awesomeness and all he does, and mango down.
so here’s the thing: n o n e of this was planned. it was amazing, hilarious, ridiculous kismet.
mango’s had his birthday recently, and so i brought his birthday present with me to phxcon. part of the present was a pair of jensen’s underbears (i think the text i sent mango right after jib was, “we’re close enough that it’s not weird if i buy u underwear right????”) bc i thought that was hilarious from jib and mango is a huge jensen fan and dean!boy. so the original joke was just that mango could have the bear underwear. i also got him a second pair in orange, bc orange is his fav colour. this was as far as i thought this would go.
so i get into phoenix thursday night and give mango his present. we didn’t know there were cockles photo ops until friday afternoon when we saw hard tickets for sale. i distinctly remember being bummed that my hometown con had cockles photo ops for sale online but phxcon, the one i was actually going to, did not. but obviously once i saw they were available, like. THERE WAS ONLY ONE CHOICE. so after deciding it was completely financially irresponsible when we have no money, i bought the op.
i can’t remember when it occurred to us that we had both the underbears and a pair of lucky orange underwear for misha in our hotel room. we wanted to do something fun and funny for the op, and cracked ourselves up at the idea. but we were also aware that it could be, you know, kind of sort of maybe intensely uncomfortable to be like (a) i know what underwear u were wearing and (b) here i brought pairs of them for you to further laugh over. i have a T E R R I B L E akdslkjkas embarrassment squick, so we didn’t want to do anything that made us uncomfortable, and we definitely didn’t want to do anything that would make misha or jensen uncomfortable. we wanted them to have fun with us and play around with us.
we ran our idea passed our roomie, who has some good con experience, to see if she thought it would fly or not. we agreed on judging our plan based on their mood on the day and asking them if they felt comfortable enough to do it was the best course of action, with a back-up plan ready to go immediately just in case, so j+m knew we were serious that they could totally pass on it if it was weird. CONSENT AND SAFE SPACE. we were hella concerned about this.
can we all take a minute to appreciate that in the diner scene there are crayons on the table that dirk definitely asked for but he’s also drinking orange and passionfruit juice which is also unbelievably adorable
ok so basically this is gonna be a huge headcanon post about richjake that @richardgoranski and i made over the past like month (anything in bold is a direct quote from connor)
so back when chloe and jake are dating chloe is like ‘i think we should break up’ and jakes like um why and chloe is like well clearly youre in love with rich and also i like brooke
and jake is like um what i have no idea what youre talking about and chloe turns jake around to look at rich whos on the other side of the hallway/room and his breath hitches and chloe is like smh u Gayass
and so chloe is like jake just ask him out!! but jake keeps denying it like haha what im not in love with rich idk where youre getting this from until chloe just stands there and gives him A Look and jake is just like…..ok fine but what if he says no and chloe is like wtf youll be fine
so jake goes up to rich and is uncharacteristically nervous and red and he confesses to rich and asks him out and rich is like omg….and accepts and BOOM theyre dating
under the cut are just some (lmao i mean A LOT) random headcanons that dont go in any particular order
Expecting? [Christian. When were you ready to expect?]
“Which one am I supposed to buy?” Christian grumbled into his phone in English, taking salvation in hoping that the old ahjussi working couldn’t understand him. There was nothing more embarrassing than standing in a convenient store in the middle of the night looking at the various pregnancy test.
“I don’t fucking know Christian” you groaned pacing back and forth in your living room. “I haven’t done this before-just get all of them.”
“All? There’s like thirty different brands. Have you lost your mind?”
“Yes Christian. Yes I have because SOMEBODY may have gotten me pregnant.”
“Chill. I got this” he sighed looking at the shelves “…Hmmm this should be fine right?” He shrugged, grabbing the more inexpensive of the brands and shoving it in the bottom of his basket. There was no way in hell he was going to leave this convenient store with only a pregnancy test in his basket. He grabbed chips, cookies, and drinks. Anything that’ll prolong the clerk from getting to the pregnancy test. “Babe, you want anythin?”
he’s going to enjoy his life and that includes his various snacks
the hardest part is getting him to the gym
like he’ll change into workout clothes and everything but will sit on the floor and not leave the dorm (onew: “but do we have to??? / minho: yes. / onew: ………. but do we really????????)
but once he’s actually at the gym he works out arguably harder than ming
(it’s bc he feels his body aging and he’s lowkey freaking out)
also he can do one handed pushups no prob bob
working on gaining weight!!!
but he learned real quick not to flaunt the fact that he could eat whatever he wants in front of the others bc they will steal his food and lick it (onew: *grinning* / jonghyun: *gaping at his plate of cream pasta now with a stripe of no sauce*)
srsly whO DOES THAT
goes swimming a lot and floats on pool noodles
deadlifts at the gym bc he knows it annoys mango that he still lifts more
“i’m going to go on a juice cleanse. is there a one day juice cleanse??” / taemin: “that would just be you…. drinking juice”
since he mostly does cardio, tries to see if he could do all their dances 2x fast by himself and if they actually do everybody 2x on weekly idol they might die
meal preps like 6 meals ahead of time but they keep disappearing bc EVERYONE KEEPS TAKING THEM AND THE TOP PORTION OF THE FRIDGE IS NOT A LUNCHABLES DISPENSER YOU SHITS MAKE YOUR OWN
made eye contact with jong who was waiting for something in the microwave and after it beeped he just stood there like ㅎ-ㅎ;; and refused to open the door so key just walked over and took his freaking lunch back
THIS IS HIS TIME TO SHINE
slams down a color-coded working out schedule and dietary plan
literally all the other members: HA no (jonghyun: *backing away* if i see a chicken breast i will scream SO loud)
his gym outfits are color-coordinated with his shoes always
is spotting taemin as he squats but keeps side-eyeing onew and jong as they’re working out and whispers “i could lift more” (tae: what / minho: i said you’re stupid)
makes everyone protein shakes and watches them until they finish it all
working out to his own album
it’s v obvious bc 1. he’s so dancing drip drop between reps
and 2. he didn’t sync his wireless headphones correctly and his songs are blasting from his phone and no one is saying anything
