imagine yoongi and jimin sitting together in the studio; yoongi working on his computer and jimin on his phone just there to keep him company. yoongi suddenly reaches over so that he can lace their fingers together and jimin just stares at him, trying not to laugh as yoongi pretends he can work fine with just one hand.
do you have any ideas as to what the ironing board is linked too? (since the rest have been old cinema stunts) it reminds me of blair witch but i doubt that has anything to do with it
Unfortunately, I am not entirely sure. I distantly remember something within the silent movie era involving an iron and ironing board, but a google search doesn’t provide much to go on. The only thing that might have had anything to do with the previous pages is the fact Buster Keaton was often referred to as “The little iron man” but I’m not sure if that’s relevant.
A quick discussion with therealraewest, however, yielded alternate sources, the first being one of Mod’s prints where resides a matching iron and board:
This poster is a closely paired parody of J.C. Leyendecker’s “Primping in the Mirror.” I’m unsure of the history behind that particular piece of illustration, but here, the ironing board bears those which seem of great importance to RGB’s character, or his history in fact (The cane, the hat, the gloves.) Not to mention of course, each flower in the pot symbolizing a collective meaning of “Death of children.” I believe this suggests the items on that board are key to understanding RGB as a whole, where he comes from, what he’s doing now, and where he will go. Where the iron sits on the timeline is a mystery.
And the second being page 220 of the comic, wherein RGB is in fact being ironed out:
I think perhaps the latter suggests that an iron in particular is something that can alter the wares he wears, and in turn, he himself. (As it’s essentially smoothing out the sharp outline of his character.) Rae suggested the ominous nature of the iron meant it would play a part in Her ultimate punishment for him. One can only assume the iron has some nefarious nature when it’s so juxtaposed with a voice in white lettering, and a taunting figure with a feminine hand.
Me on the other hand, I have a different theory entirely. I believe the iron is a reminder. An unholy sentiment representing a very difficult time in RGB’s life when he still made that grievous mistake of underestimating children. One child in particular…
I am extremely envious of your writing skills, how your writing flows and how effortless it looks as you pump out piece after piece (even though I know you put hard work into it I can't help feel a little jelly of your talent.)
be still my heart 😍
it means a lot to see this because I can assure you, words do not flow, not by any stretch of the imagination. that I can wrestle the patchy half-sentences and scraps of dialogue with which I start an idea into something that seems to flow is Very Good News.
I sometimes think it would be fun to do a livestream so people can see the horrorshow that is my writing process. but perhaps it’s best to keep the illusion that I am in some way competent and naturally talented, rather than stubborn as hell and very invested in the editing process. 😊
alec has no trouble getting up at any hour of the night at the institute but somehow when he’s at magnus’ he can’t drag himself out of bed before eight for anything less than a life or death situation. this leads to alec putting multiple alarms on his phone at night and snoozing every single one of them in the morning while he buries his head in magnus’ neck. when magnus wanted to surprise his boyfriend with breakfast in bed for the first time, magnus tried to gently shake alec off of him but when he saw alec’s little smirk he knew it was hopeless. so he wrapped his arms around alec’s back and resigned himself to a cuddly lie in. and really, there were worse ways a morning could go than curled up in your warm bed, pressed against your even warmer boyfriend.
so i broke my fingers while having sex and went to the doctor and all. the thing is my sister's wedding is today and i just don't know what say if anyone asked me what happened overnight!my girlfriend is finding the situation so funny even though we're in this place because of her. i'm dying of embarrassment. i'm coming up with scenarios but everytime i just remember what happened and blush. it's going to be a long day and if you have any suggestions please tell me.
