all growed up!

I just want to appreciate Song Qian aka Victoria for a minute. This woman started from nothing, and through hard work, she built a business for herself. I remember during an interview she mentioned that her mother made all her clothes growing up, so she didn’t come from money. With hard work and talent, she left her hometown and entered the prestigious Beijing Dance Academy, where she was scouted by SM Entertainment. Her training period was relatively short, so she struggled with the language during f(x)’s debut days, but she improved quickly. During an interview, she mentioned that in the entertainment industry, you have to look out for yourself. Now, she has her own studio independent of her SM and f(x)-related activities. Despite having a successful solo career in China, she constantly reassures fans that she wants to continue with f(x), and you can tell the members really look up to her as a reliable leader. Give it up for a queen, Song “I can’t help that I’m ambitious” Qian.

Jesus, you don't have to behave like you've won an Academy Award each time you hit another hundred followers. "Thank u guys for supporting me. I love all my fans" grow up

oh now, you don’t have to call me jesus, anon. true, i am godlike in many respects- just look at my enormous ego and unstoppable arrogance (why, i even had the nerve to be happy that i accomplished something! how absolutely ridiculous of me, how could i ever???) but comparing me to the likes of divinity is perhaps too far, even for someone as clearly self-centred as me!

Do you think Harry cries when the day comes that Rosie moves out when she's grown up :(

OH YES. The poor man weeps when his last baby leaves the nest and it’s just the two of them again in their big ol’ house that has seen all of their babies grow up (and a few of them were made there). I can see him jokingly (but not so jokingly) trying to convince her to stay a little longer, but he knows he has to let her fly. But he is a weepy mess for a little while, that is for sure. But the kiddos are never too far away and are always popping in and hanging around the house and coming to see them. They make sure to keep their door open for their babies to always come home when they need/want to. xx.

I am really tired yall.

Lemme just preface this with saying that I am a writer. I have been writing for most of my life. I have taken actual classes about writing and about what fiction can offer you, me, and people as a whole. I have won an award for something that I wrote. I know and love fiction, be it in written form, graphic novels, or film. It is all so good and complex and it’s something I am passionate about. That said, let’s get into this.

A good majority of the discourse that goes on in most of the fandoms I’m in stem from the idea that violence and forbidden sexual acts in fiction will encourage those actions in reality. It is important to know, firstly, that the only time this happens is when a person is immature enough or not mentally healthy enough to distinguish reality from fiction. Growing up, my parents would often stop horror movies (back when I first started watching them) to ask me questions. To be fair, they were pretty shitty people, but in this one aspect, they were so good about making sure I knew this difference. “You know this is just a movie, right? None of the stuff on the tv is real.” They’d assure before continuing the film.

It’s not real.

Now, half of the stuff I read or watched back then was nowhere near pushing boundaries or making me think critically about society or whatever. However, I knew that what I watched wasn’t real. It was images on a screen. If I don’t like what I’m seeing, I can walk away. It doesn’t have to affect me, personally,  unless I let it.

Now, lets circle back. School. College. I took a writing class that used this book:

Granted, it was a screenwriting class and most of the chapters were about various script formats, but the beginning chapters focused on why we write and why we make the stories we do.

It had a section in it describing how human needs and desires are met through fiction. It detailed those needs in a list. This list:

Please draw your attention to the ones on the list that say that fictions helps people to:

Be purged of unpleasant emotions

To have vicarious but controlled emotional experiences

To confront, in a controlled situation, the horrible and terrible

To explore taboo subjects without guilt

Just because you personal don’t need various forms of ‘taboo’ media, doesn’t mean that others don’t. Media, in all of its forms, is a way for people to explore things safely. It’s an outlet that doesn’t harm anyone and it offers the creator and viewer/reader a safe way of exploring the complexities of situations (or in some cases relationships) that these people do not want to be involved in irl. Because we can distinguish reality from fiction. Because none of us are going out killing people or getting into abusive relationships or fucking our sibling.

While being critical of the media we consume is important and it is vital to dissect the whys of the media being created, there is a line between creating open discussion about these taboos, about the society and personal experiences that makes one need these outlets, and verbally abusing and harassing strangers.

If you want to create a dialogue about media or a ship you don’t agree with, fine. Talk about it. Dissect it. Really dig deep into the human condition and the psychology behind these outlets, but don’t shame people for them to the point of telling them to kill themselves or telling them they are human garbage or what the fuck ever.

Fiction isn’t always meant to be picturesque. It’s not always going to be SFW. If that isn’t your cup of tea, then great. Stop going into the tags of things that make you feel unhealthy. You do you. Keep yourself safe. Stop continuously exposing yourself to content that you can’t swallow. To keep getting involved, to keep harassing people, to keep abusing strangers shows that you don’t give a damn about the content. You need an excuse to bully someone else and indulge in holier-than-thou circle jerks with other people who also have no sense of what fiction is for.

Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.

The album’s stylistic choices — what some deem as musical nods to classic rock acts like David Bowie and Pink Floyd — were also illuminated, with Styles explaining that his father listened to “a lot of Queen and Pink Floyd,” while his mother favored Norah Jones and Shania Twain. “I’m a huge Shania Twain fan,” said Styles.

sanha might not talk that much during interviews but his energy speaks for him. it is unbelievable how much talent he has at such a young age. even in his fantagio audition you can hear stability in his voice - something that some idols don’t have to this day. but despite how mature his vocal ability is, he is still an innocent and pure little child. now that tiny youngest baby is one step closer to adulthood. as his mother, i could not be prouder of who he is. thank you for your cuteness. thank you for your talent. thank you for your sass. thank you for your cracking voice and high-pitched giggle, which i will always carry in my heart. thank you for being born, yoon sanha. ♥
