Preview for my finished pieces I did for @hqseijouzine! I had a lot of fun participating thank you so much for this amazing project, all the art I have seen so far is so beautiful and I’m stoked to see the zine (*≧▽≦)
Prompt: “In the Snow” - Matsuhana. (Yes I HC Makki to be the most ridiculous person ever when it comes to clothing. Not all the time, but sometimes, just to provoke. Esp. when he’s meeting up with friends)
The fansite Letters To Romeo sent some special limited edition stuff to Vernon but people spotted pledis’ staff wearing them instead of him
The fansite DKfanunion (correct me if I’m wrong, I used the username bc I don’t know korean) sent a custom made bag for DK which, again, was seen being used by someone from the staff
The staff ate some korean beef that was given to Seventeen, also the staff has been seen wearing clothes that were sent to Jeonghan
Seventeen members who were involved in the choreography making were not included on the copyright list
“When they were trainees, Wonwoo got scolded for using satoori (accent/dialect)…One of the staffs said, ‘What did we say was going to happen if you use satoori? I’ll see you after this…”
“Even when they were on AfreecaTV, they bet on something to eat with the producer and the kids won, and Hoshi, maybe because he’s innocent, said thoughtlessly, 'Are they going to buy it for us and then take it out of our balance again?’ and there was silence… He said it like last time on Afreeca TV, [Pledis] acted like they were going to buy it [for the boys], but then took it out of [the boys’] payments –"
"They once hit Seungkwan in the head, saying that he needs to lose weight. Seungkwan just lowered his head and said, 'Sorry.’ How often do they hit them that Seungkwan seems to be used to it?"
Apparently some members went throught ‘corporal punishment’ when the cameras were off during predebut days
One fan summarized all the mistreatments that she has witnessed: "1. When I said I like a member who is not one of the visual lines, a staff asked, 'Why do you like him?’ 2. They called Seungkwan a pig for eating alone 3. They scolded members for saying hello to fans 4. They scold members in front of fans
Lastly, fans accuse Pledis of not investing enough into Seventeen, most recently when Seungkwan was spotted using an earphone as an in-ear monitor instead of a proper in-ear microphone
Also, it was noted that Pledis rejected a fansite’s present at yesterday’s showcase without giving an explanation. It seems that the only one who got to keep the gifts that fans sent is Wonwoo, probably because due that he was absent from Very Nice promotions he was present at Pledis’ building to receive them himself.
A lot of fansites closed momentaneously/permanently as a sign of protest against Pledis, demanding answers instead of letting this whole situation go, but the real question now is: what should Carats do?
Personally, I’d go outside Pledis building itself to start a riot and demand answers, but the kids just made a comeback and this could affect tremendously in the development of it, so in my opinion I’d rather give my 100% to make sure the kids succeed in every way possible (in the charts, music shows etc), that way as soon their promotions are over we can prove to Pledis that they don’t deserve this shit 😓

“This nation will remain a neutral nation, but I cannot ask that every American remain neutral in thought as well…Even a neutral cannot be asked to close his mind or his conscience."
- Franklin Roosevelt, radio address, September 3, 1939
When war erupted, Americans were divided about how to respond. They sympathized with the victims of aggression. But, remembering the horrors of World War I, most wanted to stay out of the conflict. Isolationists argued America should look to its own defenses rather than aid other nations. And neutrality laws passed by Congress during the 1930s prohibited American arms sales to warring nations. The country’s military was also woefully unprepared. All these factors placed limits on FDR’s ability to act.
In the dark months that followed, Roosevelt demonstrated his belief that America’s security depended on the defeat of the Axis Powers. His actions sparked a great national debate. Should the United States remain wholly neutral? Or should it find ways short of war to assist nations resisting Hitler?
The Reluctant Neutral
When World War II erupted in 1939, most Americans felt their nation could safely remain isolated from foreign troubles. But FDR recognized the grave danger the Axis Powers posed to American security. For two years, he pursued a cautious but deliberate policy of aiding Great Britain and, later, the Soviet Union in their war with Germany and Italy.
At every step, the President had to contend with deep-seated American fears about involvement in the war. He also had to manage a growing crisis in the Pacific, where Japan was expanding its empire into China and threatening Southeast Asia.
is easy for you and for me to shrug our shoulders and to say that conflicts
taking place thousands of miles from the continental United States … do not
seriously affect the Americas—and that all the United States has to do is to
ignore them… . Passionately though we may desire detachment, we are forced
to realize that … every battle that is fought, does affect the American
Franklin Roosevelt, Fireside
