BTS reaction: the members tease both of you the morning after

This was fun to write! Thank you fro requesting, and sorry that it took me so long xx


Jin: I think he would actually act a bit cockier than usual. So when Jimin teases him about the hickeys on his neck while you’re eating lunch with the boys, he’s just going to shrug with a smirk.

“Well, at least I got some. Want me to help you get any girls so you can get hickeys, too?”, he says, and that is followed by shocked faces and laughs from the other members.

Suga: When you and Yoongi leave his room in the morning, you meet Hobi in the kitchen. Your entire neck is covered in bit marks, all the way down below you collarbones. Yoongi can see that Hobi is about to say something, and simply sends him a glare that tells him that he’s dead if he says anything while you’re still there. But when you’re gone, he’ll just counter all of the guys’ remarks with smirks and sarcastic comebacks.

J-Hope: This depends on which member does the teasing. If it’s Namjoon or one of his hyungs, he’s going to feel slightly embarrassed and blush like crazy. But if it’s someone from the maknae line, he’ll be like Jin and just tell them that they’re simply jealous because he got some, while they didn’t.

Rap Monster: He’s going to be cocky af. He’s not even going to be sarcastic about it. He’s just going to be like “yeah, last night was amazing. Wasn’t it, babe?”, completely unfazed.

Jimin: When the two of you leaves his room in the morning, his hyungs are gone, so you’re alone with Tae and Kookie. He thinks that they’re going to tease both of you to death, but he’ relieved when they don’t say anything. Maybe he’ll get away with it this time. But that dream is ruined as soon as you leave, and both of his dongsaengs start to imitate you from last night.

“Jimin oppa! Faster, please!”. He’s going to be a blushing, embarrassed mess, but try to cover it up by trying to wrestle the both of them and come up with witty comments. But he’ll fail miserably, much to their amusement.

V: He’s going to be sort of innocent and oblivious at first. Like, when Namjoon mentions the hickeys, he’ll be just like “yeah, Y/N did a pretty good job at them, didn’t they?”. But when he realizes that his hyung had expected either him to get embarrassed or to sass him back, Tae would immediately do that.

“Too bad you can’t get any, hyung.”

Jungkook: If his hyungs are teasing you, he’s going to shut them up immediately, either by a remark or wrestling them or something. Because he’ll want to sort of protect you from them, and also show you how tough he can be. But if he’s alone and they tease him, he’s going to be so embarrassed and not know what to do with himself.

~ FLAT MESS TO FAB FRO : How I take care of my hair


                               04/07/2014 ► 07/30/2015


Finallyyyyy ! A post about -almost- everything about my hair ! In this post, you’ll be able to know the phases I’ve been through to get my hair all healthy, then my hair routine/hair regimen.


1 – Going Natural


I used to hate my curly hair, like most of curly girls I would say. My cousin offered me a straightener for my 14th birthday and made me swear to use it for special events only. It was the case, though. I’ve used it for my birthday, it was my first time ever seeing my hair all straight and flat like pastas. But, people at school were complimenting me on my long straight dark hair, saying how much I look better. These same people used to bully me because of my natural curly hair, and the fact that I was half Black (it was a catholic school where I was the only « person of colour »), but that’s another story. I was so happy to receive COMPLIMENTS from people who were hating on me since day one, to see these White boys trying to approach me in a seducing way and all, asking me to hang out…you know, that I began to straighten my hair once to twice a week.

We’ve moved to another city, a bigger city in fact where there were much more diversity. But, every Black or Mixed girl was straightening/relaxing their hair, wearing straight weave.

I graduated to High School. Unfortunetely, it was a little High School -but its reputation was really good-. One more time, I was one of the rare coloured person. During my first year, I realised that my hair was damaged. But I wouldn’t let my curls take a rest. I’ve cut my hair -not that much comparing to my big chop-, it was my first time ever cutting my hair. My hair was wayyyy more healthier, but I couldn’t let my curls appear.

Finally, I was 16, I began to be more curious about things that were surrounding me. I began to be curious about my African side, that I’ve always wanted to deny. I’ve fallen in love with my own culture, and since that moment I started to embrace my Black features more than ever. I decided to stop using my straightener during Summer 2013. But it was too late, my hair was fried to the max. My hair was kind of straight, but in a really mysterious way … my curls were non-existent, my hair was flat, wavish, my ends were horrible. I realised the impact of 2 years of trying to hide my beautiful curls. I didn’t know what to do! I didn’t know how to take care of that mess that was on my head ! Then, back to school, I wanted to get a pixie haircut in order to start all over again. I couldn’t trust the hairdressers of my city; they were White, and didn’t know anything about Afro Hair. Everytime I would visit one of them, I could see their faces looking at my hair like “how am I supposed to style that shit ?”, literally. Nobody in my family wanted to cut my hair, saying how I will regret it after. I started to transition SERIOUSLY; I was doing homemade protein masks once a week, then I was using the Hair Mayonnaise which was awesome on my poor curls who were struggling to pop. I was using a really special technique to curl my hair while transitionning. I was using a handband, placing it on my head, and I would just wrap my hair arround it. If you want to try it, you should be able to find loads of tutorials on YouTube. The results went quickly, I was really happy. But not as quickly as I wanted. In February 2014, I decided to pass the step of the big chop, finally ! I just took my pair of scissors and cut my hair quite randomly to be honest, hopefully the shape was pretty nice ! I went to my bathroom to wash my hair… right after, my curls were popping like … damn ! I was so surprised, I didn’t even know my “real curls” were looking like that, even though they were a little weak and not as tight as now. At this point, I was altering between protein and moisture. But my hair was so short, I was too … “shy”… to appear with my hair down in public. It was still pretty flat, but my curls were alive and almost healthy ! I was always wearing various protective styles, except the week-end. Until July, my hair has grown and was easier to “assume”, if you want to. Plus, my curls were tighter. In August, my hair was completely healthy, and beautifuuuul. I was so happy. Since August, I’m just letting my hair grow. But, as you can see, I don’t have that much tips for my ladies who are transitionning. I was just waiting mostly, using some proteine and moisture, but that’s all.

By the way, I really advise you to take pictures every month to really see your evolution. It helps a lot because sometimes we have the impression that there is no evolution but when you look at your pictures you see how far you’ve come !

The story of my hair in some pictures here.


2 – Taking Care Of My Hair


I don’t know where to start so I’ll follow my instinct… sorry if it’s a little messy. Lol.


What I do monthly :

Masks targetting protein or moisture : I make my masks. I don’t buy them. Except for the Hair Mayonnaise that I was using while transitionning but I don’t use it anymore. I just use 2eggs or Avocado with Olive Oil to do my protein mask. When it comes to the moisture, I use Yogurt, Olive Oil and drops of Lemon Juice to make my hair shines. I put a plastic bag on my head, with 2 beanies (LOL yeah I look really ridiculous when doing that) to assures some heat and make my hair infuse all the good nutriments. When it’s time to wash my hair, I do it with cold water. When there is nothing left on my hair, I rince my hair using Mineral Water with 1 or 2 tablespoon of Vinegar Cidar. Your hair may smell a little, but when you’ll use your products after the smell will be gone.

Trimming my hair : Well, I don’t do it monthly. I do it between 2 to 4 months. When I feel the need to, to be honest. I’m so lazy when it comes to do that. Personally, I love to twist my hair with some Coconut Oil on my hands and cut the end, which should be “thiner”.

Cleaning my scalp : At the end of the month, I like to massage my scalp with Coconut Oil, to remove all the dirt on my scalp (and it’s also soooo relaxing). After that, I shampoo my hair using the Shampoing Sunshine Clean Citron Grenade by Les Secrets De Loly, I stay a long time massaging my scalp again before focusing on my hair to remove all the products that it could have accumulate during the month. After that, your hair and your scalp is all pure and ready for another month !


What I do weekly :

Co-washing : I co-wash once to twice a week. I’ve just remarked that I tend to wash my hair more on Sunday and Wednesday. But, sometimes I do it another day, depending on the circumstances. I usually do it the evening, so I can let my hair airdry and pineapple it to stretch it, and be ready the next morning. That’s the best option for me, personally. I don’t wash my hair and my body at the same time. I start with my hair. I just bend over my bathtub, so my head is “reversed” (I do the same thing when I wash my mask, by the way). I do this because I want to avoid having spots on my back, because the products you use stay on your skin and the back is the space I tend to forget sometimes while taking a shower. I don’t touch my hair, I don’t try to detangle them before applying the Too Shea! Conditionner from Jessicurl. I let the products on my hair for few minutes before detangling my hair using my fingers, simply, or a wide tooth comb when I find it, lol. I rince with cold water. Then, I crunch my hair and put a t-shirt as a turban on my head. I let my hair dry a little in it, so during that time I can wash my body, wash my face, do my make up, put my clothes… After that, I can apply my Lait Capillaire “Litchi-Mûre” by Les Secrets De Loly, a little bit of Confident Coils blended with Rockin Ringlets, both from Jessicurl, and seal everything with some Oil (Almond, Olive, Jojoba or Argan, it depends of my mood,lol). Then, I let it airdry. When my hair is like 90% I like to use a blowdryer (not hot) while shaking my head, to not have my roots “stuck” to my scalp, and encourage the volume of my hair. After that, I can use a pick and comb through my roots to maximise the volume. Et voilà !


What I do everyday :

Peanappling my hair before sleeping : This is my technique to sleep while not crunching my poor curls against my pillows, since I move a lot when I sleep. I just take a satin scarf that I wrap arround my head and I tie it on the front. I helps stretching my hair, and the next morning my hair is longer and even bigger !

Refreshing my fro : After the night, comes the morning, when your fro has been enduring all your movements during the night. To refresh my fro, all I do is putting some cold water on my hands, then I -kind of- massage my scalp. After that, my hands still a little wet so I take advantage of that to reshape quickly my fro and the wild curls. Finally, I put some moisture back on my hair, but not too much because I don’t want the products to weight down on my hair. I spray my hair with cold water lightly, I put my Lait Capillaire “Litchi-Mûre” by Les Secrets De Loly and my favourite oil in my fro, especially the “outer” curls which tends to be drier than the rest.


Hope I didn’t forget anything … I hope it was clear too !

Bisous ! :-*

I really, really hope it’s okay that I made this Silver Fox!Ezio because he’s just… He’s so pretty in Revelations…

‘Fro Features: Theodora

What’s your name and where are you from?

My name is Akunwa Theodora and I grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. I’m originally from Delta/Benue state though.

Have you been natural all your life? If not, please tell us how and why you decided to go natural

No I haven’t been natural all my life. In the summer of  2013 I decided to get a hair cut and I shaved the sides of my head. Then I did braids from September to December, and when I took them out I had natural hair mixed with retouched hair. And so I just cut off the relaxed hair so my hair would be even.

Tell us about your Big Chop Day

Okay so…! I just took out my braids and I was like, wtf why is my hair two different textures. Then I remembered natural hair is different from relaxed hair. So I was like, this is interesting, I’m going to try short natural hair today. So I took a pair of kitchen scissors, stood in front of the downstairs bathroom and began to cut the relaxed parts. Then one of my best friends, Joshua, called me and was screaming about Beyoncé’s surprise visual album. And I dropped the kitchen scissors and ran upstairs to DL the real album of the year. 4 hours after screaming at the videos I realized my hair was half cut. Then I cut it all off and went to bed covered in Beyoncé’s approval.


What made you decide to take your healthy hair journey seriously and how’s it going so far?


I started reading about the effects of the relaxer on natural hair and I was like nah. Also the whole construct of society against African hair. I felt taking my own natural hair seriously was a kind of solidarity with my background and culture. It’s going good so far.

How would you describe your hair and your relationship with it?

Lol basically my hair talks and I listen. I don’t mind though, I give her what she wants and she gives me what I want ;) 😂

What’s your typical, current hair regime-wash days, styling, protective styles…

I don’t wash my hair often. I use more conditioner than shampoo. Twists outs when I have me hair out, or like a double ponytail. Protective styles: braids and wigs.

What recent issues have you had with your hair and how have you resolving/are you resolving them?

I’ve been braiding my hair down for my wigs and my hair always feels dry and too stretched when I take the braids out. So now I moisturize often when I have my wigs on.
My scalp tends to get cold and tender in the winter so I learnt to keep my head covered, at least when I’m out for long.   

What are your three favourite things about your hair?

The colour. I have dyed bits.
How hard it is, lol, people think it’s problematic but it makes my hair really resilient.
Shrinkage, cause my Afro feels real when it he springs are condensed.

How do you feel about shrinkage and how do you deal with it?

Lol I like it. But if I want to stretch it out I braid my hair and then loosen it after a few days

What are your favourite hair products so far?

Shea butter, styling gel and coconut oil.

What are your favourite protective styles?

Long twists

What 3 pieces of vital advice would you leave to other naturals?

Don’t worry about the length, beauty takes time.
Heat on your hair is never worth it.
Invest in a silk scarf, that shit works.

What forms of social media can we find you on?

F2F - Dantana

It had been a few weeks since their trip to Disneyland and Dani had made some great strides in…well, nothing, if she was being entirely honest. Her heart ached more and more everyday as she encountered Santana at school, or when the girl would text her out of the blue and she had to will herself to turn down any suggestions of going out. It hurt like hell.

So, why exactly was she at this party that Santana had decided to throw for seemingly no reason? Dani kept telling herself it was to keep an eye on her roommate to make sure she doesn’t end up doing anything stupid, but she knew the real reason was to see Santana. She missed the woman terribly - it was like she was missing a limb. She had grown so close to her, after spending months on end basically living with her. 

She opted to stick by the sides of some familiar people, only making a break for it when she saw Santana coming their way. She had been challenged a few times to chugging contests, and played a quick round of beer pong that she, fortunately, lost. Needless to say, she was more than a little tipsy at this point. It felt good. It felt like there wasn’t a damn thing in the world she needed to care about tonight. 

Which was probably why she had no problems going up to Santana. “I didn’t know you knew so many people!”

  • Luna Lovegood: Are you going to come, Draco?

  • Draco Malfoy: That’s not a good look.

School Reunion - Behind the Scenes (Part 3)

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article in DWM #370

In between takes, David Tennant chats happily with the pupils, who are volunteers - and wannabe TV stars - from local schools. “Have you broken it?” he exclaims, when one girl snaps her watchstrap. “Ooh dear, the whole show will collapse now! We’re gonna have to cancel cos you’ve broken your watch.”

Students, students, going to and fro, students, students, students.  In the middle of the throng are the Doctor, Sarah Jane, Rose, and Mickey. “It’s time I had a word with Mr. Finch,” the Doctor tells them, and heads into the school foyer.

“CUT” says James [Hawes, director], and then turns to Jon [Older, assistant director]. “The kids are walking in too fast. It needs to be five times as slow.”

“I’ve never seen anybody so keen to get to school,” agrees Elisabeth.

And then Noel thumps K9′s head so hard that one of his ears snaps off. “Is it broken?” asks the producer, Phil Collinson. “How long will it take to fix?”

It’ll take 10 minutes to fix, because the ear was linked to a servo.  K9′s side panel is removed once again, and out comes the screwdriver to fix it. “No twisting the ear this time,” says James.

“Can I pretend to twist it, though?” asks Noel.

“No! Be nice to the doggie!” replies Phil firmly.

Volleyball Club

Nico tapped her pencil against the thin notepad, yellow pages bright and overly showy about her lack of research her club president had demanded of her. Journalism wasn’t the best thing out there, but it gave her the credits she needed.

Not to mention she had the best view of the volleyball club as they practiced, a certain redheaded girl standing out the most. The MVP. She had seen her a lot, as she’d interviewed members of the club before, but Nico never had the guts to speak to her.

CLAD IN HER CHEER uniform, Milan walked through the halls, ponytail bouncing to and fro while her chocolate hues searched for a femme decked out in her gear. It was just minutes after halftime and the team wasn’t doing so well, the confidence welling up in the student body a few hours before was depleting. Yet, the girl was more worried about the other as she rounded the corner and turned into the locker room. “Y’know the entire school is out there wondering what’s going on with their quarterback and I’m here wondering what’s going on in that head of your’s?”
