Essays in Existentialism: Rivals

Clarke and Lexa are rival cheerleading captains with a little too much sexual tension. They both stay in the same hotel with their teams for a competition.

“I want absolutely no fraternization,” the coach said as he placed his hands on his hips and moved up and down the sidewalk in front of the hotel. “There will be no pranking, no fighting, no yelling, no touching, no post cards, no letters, no hugging, no anything, with the opposing team. Am I understood?”

You were no Avenger.

You weren’t as badass as Natasha or Wanda. You weren’t as sarcastic and outgoing as your father, you were just you. You lived with the Avengers because your dad was Tony Stark, the Avengers were like your huge, crazy, loud family. You loved having them as a family, you loved every last bit of it, but sometimes it’s hard not to doubt your looks or skills.

You were clumsy. You ran into walls, got your shirt caught on pointy objects, face planted into gardens, and tripped going up the stairs.  You weren’t as strong as the others,  you never worked on your upper body strength because you never really cared about it.

You would run twice a week for exercise and that was it. You hated working out, it was the worst thing you’ve ever experienced. You would much rather be drinking a milkshake while watching the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. Like you were right now.

“Oo, fancy.” You were sitting criss crossed on the couch, a blanket spread across your bare legs and your baggy long sleeve shirt rolled up slightly on your arms. A milkshake in one hand while your eyes remained glued to the screen projecting the fashion show.

“That looks painful.” Scott spoke with a mouth full of his own milkshake. He was slouched next to you, his legs spread out in front of him and his back surrounded by toss pillows. He was tilting slightly onto the arm of the couch but he seemed to be comfortable.

“I would never wear something that heavy looking on my dick.” Scott took another large gulp of his shake, twisting his face in pain as a brain freeze clearly took over his mind temporarily.

“But it’s so pretty.” You admired the glammed up bra, “Oo, look she has wings! I wish I had wings, how fun would that be?”

“Super fun! I would strut around in wings all day if they looked like that.” Scott glanced over at you, but you were still consumed in admiring all the glamorous outfits and models.

“I have wings.” Sam called out from the chair on the other side of the couch. His legs hanging over the arm of the chair and his back resting against the other arm. His phone rested on his chest and his shake was long gone, the empty cup sitting on the coffee table. “They’re even cooler because mine work.”

“Mm.” Both you and Scott made the same sound and twisted your lips as you both looked at Sam.

“Not the same thing. Yours aren’t as glamorous, now are they?” You turned your attention back at the screen and made your lips in the shape of an ‘o’ as you looked at Gigi Hadid walk down the runway. She was your favorite model, her and Cara Delevingne.

“Yeah. You get feathers, sparkles, jewels and glitter on your wings, then we’ll talk.” Scott nodded his head swiftly and ignored Sam’s narrowed eyes as he directed his eyes back to the Fashion Show.

“I know a girl who can hook you up with some bedazzlement on those wings of yours, Sam.” You winked in his direction, a smirk tilting on your lips. “And by girl I mean me, and by bedazzlement I mean some superglue and a trip to Hobby Lobby.” 

“I hate both of you.” Sam chuckled under his breath and shifted around a little in his chair.

“Man, I wish I had legs like those.” Scott  shook his head and moved the straw in his shake around, trying to get a good sip. You giggled at Scott’s comment, you always found him to say the strangest but most awesome things. 

“You know who has legs like those?” Sam paused, waiting for Scott to answer but when Scott kept gulping down his shake, Sam answered himself. “Natasha. She even has the walk down too, she would slay all those other models.” 

Scott hummed in agreement. “And Wanda has the hair of a Victoria Secret model. I wish my hair was as luscious as hers, that would save me fifteen minutes in the morning.”

“You spend fifteen minutes on your hair?” Sam scuffed and tilted his head back to look at Scott.

“This,” Scott motioned to his hair. “doesn’t just happen, Sam. It takes time, effort and skill, okay?”

“Man, you’re crazy.” Sam chuckled, shaking his head and slouching back down in his chair again. “For real though, Wanda and Nat are hella attractive-”

You shuffled around in your seat, the thoughts that consumed your mind were driving you insane. All they were talking about was how beautiful Natasha and Wanda were, of course you had to agree, they were both stunningly gorgeous. They were badass, strong and attractive all at once. They were your best friends, but it always hurt you when you would go places with them and everyone would notice them and not you.

You weren’t as stunning as them, you weren’t as flawless and beautiful as them. Of course you weren’t. Everyone expected Tony Stark’s daughter to be drop dead gorgeous, but somehow they always seemed surprised to see you. You were never what they were expecting.

You stood up suddenly, your nose tingling and your eyes starting to twitch with tears. Your chest felt tight and your hands felt clammy, you needed a moment to pull yourself together before you came back out here and pretended to not even care. You dropped the blanket previously covering your bare legs on the couch where you used to be sitting and placed your milkshake, that suddenly made you feel bloated, on the coffee table.

“I have to pee.” You announced it as a joke, happily your voice didn’t shake and you seemed to be holding it together on the outside fairly well. You knew you were about to break, you had to hide.

“Okay.” Scott and Sam both watched you speed down the hallway. “Be back soon, the Angels are about to come out!’

“Man, seriously though, Nat and Wanda have the legs and hair, but damn, Y/N has the whole package. The face, hair, walk, legs, and even the hips.” Sam shook his head in astonishment.

Scott nodded his head in agreement and pulled a part of your blanket on his thighs, he knew it was your favorite blanket but he loved it just as much. It was soft and always smelled good.

“She looks more like a Victoria Secret model than some of the Victoria Secret models.” Scott talked with another mouthful of his shake, he didn’t even care though. “Have you seen the way everyone looks at her, she steals the attention away from Nat and Wanda every time they go out.”

“Hell, she steals the attention away from us Avengers. And we’re Avengers.”

You Only Live Once

You know, if you think about it, it’s actually Victor who falls in love with Yuri FIRST and it’s Victor who loves harder than Yuri. True, Yuri has always admired Victor since he was 12 when he saw a 16-year-old Victor skating on television, but his love for Victor was essentially that of a fan adoring his idol, a love that lacks what you may call a deep, personal connection. Yuri has always seen Victor as a god, not as a man and definitely not as a lover. To Yuri, Victor was more like an unattainable legend.

Originally posted by antimatteruniverse

Victor on the other hand, pretty much falls in love with Yuri after their first ever personal encounter at the Grand Prix banquet a year before. Yuri goes from being incredibly anxious and shy to the charismatic playboy who comes to town (a.k.a the Grand Prix) and seduces everyone with his super Eros drunk dance moves (if you watch carefully, the choreography in Eros somewhat resembles Yuri’s dance moves from the banquet. Victor never forgot them and probably doesn’t want to) and enchants everyone in the room.

Originally posted by just-alittlelady

Intoxicated and ready to enjoy life, Yuri battles Yurio first and beats him effortlessly. Yuri then pole dances with Chris before challenging Victor, and Yuri carries out his challenge with full Eros as they pretty much strip in front of the entire ballroom. Victor is the last to battle Yuri and Yuri not only challenges Victor to a dance off, but also asks Victor to be his coach should he lose the battle. Yuri also invites Victor to come to his family’s hot spring resort in Hasetsu, which probably hit Victor hard in the kokoro as we later find out that Victor yearns for a life and love despite his successful career.

Originally posted by 97pikapi

Yuri throws himself drunk, vulnerable, and with complete honesty at Victor, inviting Victor wholeheartedly into his life in a way no other person had done before. And it was in that innocent yet incredibly Eros moment that Victor fell for the hot drunk mess who was grinding up against him in front of EVERYONE. Yuri doesn’t hide the fact that he wants Victor in his life, and Victor is all for it.

Originally posted by the-fandom-demon-princess

Victor takes part in the dance off anyway even though he’s never really had a conversation with Yuri before save for their meeting after the Grand Prix finals. He totally accepts his fate to be Yuri’s coach should he lose, and from the pictures, it’s seemingly obvious that he fell in love with Yuri’s drunken YOLO-ness even more. In essence, Victor falls hard for Yuri’s inner ability to live life to the fullest–a quality Victor realizes has been missing from his own life.

Originally posted by melody-of-ever-blue

Even though he is Yuri’s mancrush, Victor actually endures a considerable amount of rejection from Yuri despite the latter being the initial seducer. When watching the series for the first time, it looks as if Victor is some confident playboy who flirtatiously tries to win Yuri over, but this is far from the truth. Victor is head over heels for Katsuki Yuri and tries desperately to connect with him on a deeper level. For most of the series, Victor himself is unaware that Yuri does not have any memory of their dance off, as he reacts in shock when Yuri remarks that he didn’t have the courage to talk to Victor at the banquet the year before in episode 10 (let’s keep in mind that a half-naked Yuri practically dry humped Victor in a crowded banquet hall while confessing for all to hear that he wants Victor as his coach). It should only be natural that Victor would feel seduced and cast aside (hence the story of Eros) as he had no idea Yuri couldn’t remember what they shared at the banquet, which makes Victor’s feelings for Yuri all the more deep. Despite Yuri’s constant rejection of Victor’s affections, our Vicchan persevered. Why? Because he loves Yuri.

Originally posted by lilium

When Yuri calls himself a dime-a-dozen figure skater, he is both right and wrong. For those of us who are not in the world of figure skating, Yuri is selling himself short: he’s Japan’s representative for the Grand Prix Final, which means that he had to be the best to earn a spot among the top 6 finalists. But for a legend like Victor, Yuri is technically just one of many figure skaters in the world. If Victor merely wanted to train someone to win the gold medal, he could have just picked anyone from the rest of the very talented figure skating gang. In fact, it would have made more sense for him to choose Yurio, who was more driven than Yuri to win at the time, and is also a fellow Russian (more gold medals for Russia, no?). But Victor chooses Yuri instead, not just because he believes Yuri to have insane potential, but also because he needs Yuri’s love, a love that makes him feel alive and inspired. Yuri’s determination to win at the Onsen On Ice against Yurio was Victor’s reassurance that he had made the right decision to pursue his feelings for Yuri and to invest his time and effort into building not only Yuri as a skater but also their relationship as a whole.

Originally posted by pinkujinsama

One thing to note is that even though Yuri is more than willing to gush about Victor to anyone who’s willing to listen (especially the audience), Yuri pretty much avoids Victor’s advances at the start of the series because he feels unworthy. He first avoids taking a picture with Victor because he feels he isn’t good enough to be Victor’s peer despite Victor’s efforts to make friends with him; he feels uncomfortable with Victor’s outward display of bold affection when he first arrives at the onsen. He’s tensed around Victor and shuts down most of Victor’s attempts at intimacy, like sleeping together in the same bed or talking about past relationships and romance. Ultimately, Yuri has difficulty opening up to Victor at the beginning despite Victor’s sincere efforts to get to know him. However, Victor does not give up and continues to break the walls around Yuri’s glass heart. It is Victor who fights to get through, while Yuri struggles to keep Victor at bay. Yuri himself admits that he has issues with being seen as vulnerable and weak, but Victor never relents.

Originally posted by azurrotenshiii

But wait! Didn’t Yuri skate to Victor’s Stay Close to Me as a sort of love letter to Victor? Well, that may seem like the case at first glance since Yuri skates Victor’s program with such passion, but when you look at it closely, it feels more like his performance was a love letter to Yuko instead. While Victor may have seen the video as Yuri’s way of reaching out to him, Yuri definitely had no intention of proving his worth to Victor via his skating of the program. Yuri wasn’t aware that he was being recorded, nor did he know that Yuko wasn’t alone at the time. Yuri had intended for his skate to be a private exhibition for Yuko; Yuri had been wanting to retire and wanted to perform something meaningful for Yuko that they both loved together: Victor Nikiforov’s masterpiece.

Originally posted by daburupurei

After Yuri’s skate ends, it is heavily implied that he was about to confess his feelings for his childhood friend, only to be interrupted by her three daughters, thus rendering the confession inappropriate to say the least (Yuko is revealed to be happily married and is a mother of three). It could even be assumed that Yuri was probably more emotionally invested in Yuko all those years, which explains why he never got a girlfriend in the first place. Due to his lack of confidence and assertiveness, Yuri never tells her how he feels even though the two of them get along very well and share a love for ice skating. Yuri probably suffered from unrequited love and watched in silence as the only girl he ever loved, his Ice Princess married Nishigori and started a family with him. Victor may have had Yuri’s undying adoration, but he didn’t have Yuri’s heart.

Originally posted by gnathonizeart

Unlike Victor, who falls hard for Yuri at first hug during the banquet, Yuri gradually falls in love with Victor as the series progresses and slowly begins to see Victor as a man rather than a legendary god whom he can never compare to. He slowly starts to see Victor’s flaws and allows himself to get angry at Victor and stops being apologetic about feeling different emotions other than admiration for Victor. He begins to accept that Victor is a human who makes mistakes, just as Victor accepts Yuri for who he is. Victor unknowingly shatters the last piece of resistance in Yuri by threatening to quit as his coach should Yuri fail to make the podium at The Cup of China. This successfully draws out Yuri’s true feelings from within his fragile heart and Yuri becomes more honest with Victor. In turn, Yuri’s insecurities break down Victor’s perfect, godlike image as well. Victor isn’t as flawless as the world thinks him to be. Both of them are lacking something, and they found it in each other.

Originally posted by the-red-emperor-and-the-shadow

Eventually, Yuri reaches a point where he becomes consciously aware that he wants Victor as more than a coach, but this realization isn’t instant nor is it definite. Even though it is Yuri who places the golden ring on Victor’s finger in front of the cathedral and subsequently breaks the Internet with his proposal, he is also the one who decides to end their partnership because he once again feels inadequate. Victor, despite all his efforts to break through to Yuri is once again rejected and shattered by Yuri’s uncertainty. At that point, we see a different Victor, a dejected and almost broken Victor; a Victor who thought that he had finally found life and love, only to have his happiness ripped away from him by the very person whom he cares for most in this world. 

Originally posted by fabelyn

Victor arguably loves Yuri more than Yuri loves him: Victor puts his career on the line for Yuri, a huge gamble given that he is at the age of retirement; he literally packs up all his things and moves to another country just to be with Yuri; he sticks by Yuri despite all the pressure from others to give up on being a coach and return to skating while he still has time left. Victor never falters in his decision to take Yuri on his journey to gold and even decides to stay on as his coach while returning to the ice; a task that will undoubtedly take up an incredible amount of time, effort, and determination on Victor’s part.

Originally posted by sairenji

While we all can agree that these two are soulmates who were meant for each other, it is most unfair to say that Victor and Yuri have a magical relationship that just happened to work out beautifully. True, they were meant to be together, but they also worked hard at it. They laughed, they fought, they cried, they inspired each other, and they supported each other. Victor helped Yuri to be more confident in himself and salvage his career as a skater, but it is Yuri who is the true savior in this pairing: it is Yuri’s love that ultimately saves Victor as a human being.

Originally posted by mariplisetsky

Victor is now more than just a legendary skater who is expected to shine and dazzle at every event; he is more than just his scores, his rank, and the gold medals that his peers envy; he is more just the one to beat in competition; he is more than just Victor without a personal back story: He is Yuri’s coach, Yuri’s friend, his lover, and his fiancé. And he has not only gained Yuri, Yuri’s family and friends are now his family and friends, and Makkachin has found some new humans to play with as well, people who care about him and Vicchan very much–and they are happy together.

Originally posted by lawlightislife

Through Yuri, Victor has gained not only a love, but also a life of his very own that doesn’t just revolve around ice skating, and is filled with people who love him not only as Victor Nikiforov the legendary skater, but also as just Victor himself, the man he is on the inside. Katsuki Yuri’s love was something that Victor fought very hard for, and it has rewarded him greatly in return; a precious treasure I’m sure he intends to keep forever–a new chapter in his life with a new purpose, new meaning, and new people to share it with; and I have no doubt that Victor plans to live his newfound life with Yuri to the fullest, because after all, You Only Live Once.

So, you know I'm rather new to the fandom, and this will be my first comeback, and I want to do anything I can to help make this comeback a success for our boys. Can you tell me what I can do? like I dont know if I will be able to buy the album, but what other things can I do and where? Thanks~

Sure thing! I’ll give you some basics of what a typical comeback is like for fans! I hope this info is helpful for all BABYz and thanks to the awesome BABYz who provided tutorials for all of these methods!

Social Media

The easiest method is to just promote BAP as much as possible for every comeback. Whether it’s Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat, introducing BAP to other K-Pop fans as well as people who are not into K-pop is seriously so helpful. The more we talk about BAP, the more exposure they’ll get, which will lead to more fans and more opportunities for BAP in the future! 

I cannot stress this enough when I say that when discussing BAP on social media PLEASE keep your posts and comments positive. Talk about how great the songs are, how perfect the MV is, write about OT6′s flawless singing and dancing, etc; however, DON’T make negative posts criticizing BAP/BABYz/other fandoms because it really reflects back on BAP. DON’T start rumors or spread them, DON’T post or repost negative comments/posts from others, and DON’T write negative comments directly to BAP on sns. Also, even though we all can agree TS sucks, it’s clear that they go out of their way to avoid any concerns from BABYz. Even though it’s frustrating, before you send them emails, call their offices, or threaten to fly to Korea and punch every employee at TS in the face, PLEASE think of what your words/actions will do to BAP. We don’t know what truly goes on with BAP and TS, so it’s best to remain positive and focuse on promoting the boys and patiently waiting for news from TS and then we can punch everyone if they fuck up as usual :D

Physical Albums

Even though you’re still unsure about buying a physical copy of the album, if you do end up deciding it’s best to buy from stores whose sales count towards charts, such as Gaon and Hanteo. Preordering is also really important for sales within the first week, so here are a few verified stores for each chart in addition to TS Ent.’s official store:

Hanteo: KPopTown, KpopMart, YesAsia (there is a global site and US site, this is the global site link)

Gaon: Melon, MNet

Searching

Searching for BAP online will actually help them gain exposure and hype about their comeback. Simply go on the Naver website or app, type in “BAP ROSE”, click on and share articles on your social media, clear your history, and repeat! 

There are also search attacks that we do, in which there are scheduled times for BABYz to search about BAP on Naver in order to get them trending. If you check BAPdomination on Twitter, they post the schedules and search words for each day.

Voting

Voting will help BAP win on music programs, as well as for appearances on various variety shows (which will increase their exposure and popularity). The Vote4BAP Twitter provides info for where streaming/voting can be done.

You can vote for BAP on Show Champion, Inkigayo, Music Bank, Music Core, and MNet Countdown using the tutorials provided by BABYz.

Streaming

Streaming allows for digital sales, which count for roughly 50% of votes on music shows. In order to stream, you need to purchase passes on sites like Genie or Melon. 

Melon 

Melon streaming can seem intimidating, but there are literally soooo many wonderful BABYz who are always offering to help set up an account, or even stream for you (a lot of BABYz actually advertise this kind of help on Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram so make sure to stay on your social media grind during comebacks!). In order to stream on Melon, you need to create and account and either use your PC or dowload the mobile app. There’s a document that BABYz made that explains the whole process along with an FAQ if you have any trouble.

TS YouTube Channel

You can also stream the official MV on TS Ent.’s YouTube channel (it’s best to watch the MVs on TS’s channel even though 1theK also posts the MV and has more subscribers [which means more exposure] but really focus on TS’s channel first and foremost. Stream in 720p or above, like/comment/share the MV on all social medias, watch the full MV without pausing AND at a volume above 50%. Also DON’T click replay or refresh the page; instead, play the video incognito or clear your history. You can also create a playlist of just the MV so that it continuously loops.

Tudou

Streaming can also be done on Tudou to help BAP win on THE SHOW. Open this link in incognito mode and click the orange button beside the ROSE MV. You don’t have to watch the whole MV ~ there are two lines when the video loads: orange and gray. Let the gray line load fully after you press play and that counts as a stream. Make sure you don’t mute the video while it’s playing, otherwise it doesn’t count. As always, delete your history/cookies and try from all devices and computers.

Naver TV Cast

Finally, streaming can be done on Naver TV cast, but the options listed above tend to be the most used by fans (especially Tudou - BAP tend to win a lot on THE SHOW since it’s a system solely based on the input of fans’ streaming, but it has been known to be messy sometimes when counting votes so NEVER STOP STREAMING lol).

Fancafe/Daum tutorial

itsBAP actually has a tutorial to make an account to join BAP’s official fanclub, in case anyone was interested in this option as well!

Of course, there are so many ways to support BAP in their comebacks, but above all just being a loyal BABY is the best support you can give! Let’s all work together to make this comeback a success and make 2017 BAP’s year! Fighting! ♡

Afternoon Snow

Rowaelin, because why not? Enjoy


Winter was Rowan’s favourite, and Rowan didn’t use that word often. Rowan liked things but the word ‘favourite’ seemed such a childish word to attach to his descriptions. But winter, winter was his favourite, and here in Terassen the winters were brutal as they were beautiful.

He trudged through the snow in the courtyard pulling his cloak tighter around him. It was freezing out here as the last of the snowflakes flurried about in the wind. Because of the temperature, many of the inhabitants of the castle had chosen to stay indoors. But not Rowan. He breathed in the cold crisp air deep into his lungs. It stung a little but he relished in it and his magic flared in response. For the hell of it sent a gust of wind along a nearby hedge and watched as it carried the snow off into the air. It was beautiful.

The sound of crunching snow pulled Rowan from his thoughts. Rowan turned and smiled as Fleetfoot came bounding towards him, spraying snow with her massive paws. She stopped just in front of him and put her head between her front paws, nose in the snow. Rowan crouched down to ruffle her ears but stopped when he felt something cold explode on the back of his head. 

Rowan stood and turned in the direction that the snowball had come. He couldn’t see anyone but he heard some suppressed giggling. Rowan couldn’t help the smile that twisted his lips upward. Using his Fae abilities he walked as lightly as he could towards a nearby tree. The giggling continued and he used the sound to cover the rustling he made as he pulled himself up onto the low branch. Peering around the trunk he spied two heads looking around the courtyard for him. One golden and one dark. 

The dark haired one skittered out from the hiding spot, looking around desperately. Fleetfoot bounded over and almost knocked the small girl over in her excitement. But ever the good dog that she was, Elide’s daughter was left unscathed as Fleetfoot reigned herself in at the precise moment that she needed to. Marion had inherited her mother’s stature and was such a tiny thing. It was hard to tell who she got her dark hair and eyes from with Elide and Lorcan being so similar in that regard and it always made Rowan smile when he caught them arguing about it. 

“Uncle Rowan is gone!” Marion almost squealed in a desperate voice.

Marion’s companion came out from hiding then too and Rowan smiled as his mate came into view. She too looked around the courtyard for him.

“He’s probably cheated and shifted and flew away like a coward,” Aelin said as she patted Fleetfoot’s head. 

Oh she was going to pay for that. Rowan waited until they passed the tree before he silently dropped to the ground. Then he scooped up a handful of snow to make his ammunition. Then in a flawless, fluid motion he spun out from behind the tree and threw the snowball.

Only for it to be dissolved as it hit a shield of flame.

Aelin wore one of her mischievously wicked smiles and in return Rowan gave her a canine bearing grin.

“Seems Uncle Rowan isn’t a coward after all,” Aelin said as she crouched into a fighting stance. Marion squealed in delight and bent down to gather handfuls of snow.

The snowball fight that ensued was one for the ages. Aelin’s and Rowan’s precision with aiming and deflecting would have left them in a stalemate. But even though Marion was young her aim was uncommonly accurate and Fleetfoot was running interference distracting both sides, her loyalty never entirely decided. It was when Fleetfoot had jumped at Aelin and she had let fly a curse that then caused Marion to scold her, that Rowan took his chance. He ran at his wife and tackled her to the ground. Aelin let out a surprised laugh as Rowan pinned her arms and legs.

“Quick Marion! We’ve been defeated! Save yourself!” Aelin called from where she was trapped under Rowan. Marion heeded the warning and ran squealing and giggling into the palace, Fleetfoot at her heels.

Rowan looked down at Aelin as she struggled against him, huffing and breathing hard.

“Yeild,” Rowan demanded.

Fire practically burned in Aelin’s eyes as she glared up at him. She struggled again but it was in vain. Rowan was still stronger and bigger that she was, he could hold her for a good long while just using his brute strength. Defeated Aelin blew and strand of loose hair from her face and Rowan watched as the snow held to the hair fluttered about. Then he looked back to Aelin’s face.

She looked beautiful. Her cheeks were pink from the cold and exertion and her ever bright eyes glistened from playfulness. Aelin smiled at him and Rowan smiled back, loosening his grip on her wrists. He had been mistaken to have taken that smile as her surrender, because his acquiescence allowed Aelin to gain the upper hand.

Rowan was now on his back in the snow, Aelin sitting a top of him. Rowan knew that Aelin understood she did not have long before Rowan overpowered her again. So she grabbed a handful of snow from behind Rowan’s head and left it run through her fingers onto his face. 

“It only takes a smile to undo you, Buzzard,” Aelin teased as Rowan sputtered and brushed the snow from his face. 

Rowan sat up on his elbows, Aelin still a top him. “And what does is take to undo you, Fireheart?”

“Much more than a smile,” Aelin said as she lent forward but stopped just before touching his lips.

A growl escaped Rowan’s throat and Aelin lent in further. For a moment they sat there, caught in a battle of wills as to who would give in to the kiss. The moment was broken as Aelin jumped up with a yelp as a ball of snow slammed into the top of her head. Rowan laughed as Aelin cursed him and shook her hair out like a dog. When she had finished Aelin glared daggers at Rowan, which only made Rowan laugh harder as he stood and brushed himself off. Then as sweetly as he could he took her hand and kissed it.

“Fireheart.”

“Buzzard.”

Yaho. Still Last Game spoilers. I read some people found these useful so ^^!! I’ll draw more scenes I liked.

I really like the whole sequence of Nash vs Akashi after Nash revealed his Belial Eye. The music from where Akashi was 「格が違う…? なめるな…!」

(That short glimpse of surprised Akashi was suuuper cute though haha….. I want to pause the movie so bad to stare at his face)

and then Akashi uses his Emperor Eye to read Nash’s movements

and then predicting what Nash would do all the while a rock music plays in the bg. Haha. It makes my heart pump. I think this Emperor Eye-Belial Eye scene is in my Top 3 favorite scenes from the movie. Another one is the MidoAka scene because OnoD was just flawless.

Nash using Belial Eye looks kinda like this?? He opens his eyes wide and closes them after.

I’m tired now so this is it for today ^^

BTW, I got Kurokocchi for today’s coaster!!!! *dies happily*

anonymous asked:

Hello 😊 sooooo I've JUST recently gotten into SHINee ( honestly I've been wanting to get into SHINee for a while but I've just been lazy until now) so I'm new to the fandom--whooop! - So I was wondering, is there anything I should know about SHINee? Also could you recommend me anything SHINee related?

welcome to the fandom, sweetpea!

there’s a lot of history to tell from these past ten years, so I’ll give you a condensed version of things (there was this huge masterpost/introduction on shinee I was going to link but I can’t seem to find anywhere otl; I’ll keep searching for it, though); even more so because… I believe it’s easier, in fact, to learn about them slowly and steadily as you become more and more involved with them.

so, take all the time you need! it’s really more exciting to fall in love with the boys little by little tbh.

forget about the typical roles found in kpop groups: all five are vocals (and visuals). shinee as a whole is very different from currently active/3rd generation groups - even though they’ve been on the run for longer, they are still young, they always bring in new, exciting concepts and flawless performances and tend to be compared to rookies in what concerns their energy on stage; meaning, they work as hard and with as much enthusiasm as a group that just debuted. 

taemin is very clumsy and has a habit of losing/breaking things by accident. (important: he hates bugs and I don’t say this lightly.) he’s very reserved and an introvert, but he loves his close friends and family dearly. usually more comfortable somewhere with food available. the personification of persistence and passion for what he does. also, he’s a soloist with three (Korean: Ace and Press It / Japanese: Sayonara Hitori) successful albums released. (you can find my - heavily biased - picks of favorite taem videos here.)

oh and still related to taemin - we have this thing where chanting his name brings in luck, apparently

minho is everyone’s dream boy: acts, raps, sings, writes his own lyrics, is gorgeous and charming and athletic, always working hard to become a better version of himself and the sweetest being you’ll ever hear about. he’s tall and big and all, yes, but don’t fool yourself: he’s soft, affectionate, touchy and a Real sap 24/7. his dad pretty much adopted the other four. he starred on a movie titled ‘Derailed’ recently; on KBS’s Hwarang: The Beginning and a bunch of dramas you can find on a masterlist at the end of this post.

key is a hardworking, inspirational and real example of someone who’s been through a lot and has a lot to useful advice to share based on previous experiences (also, he’s the king of aesthetics). he knows where he stands and doesn’t take bullshit from anyone - that’s why he’s the one to quickly shut down any member who’s being Too Much during an interview/show/etc; which is funny, because key himself is full of energy and will like, do the most for as long as he can get away with it. he’s been featured in a bunch of musicals and took part in a duo, Toheart, back in 2014. solo projects include a collab song with Axodus and an ost with NCT’S Doyoung.

a guide on how much of a sweetheart is kim jonghyun - he’s a complex being with a heart much too big and we’re always learning something new about him. I think the best way to get to know him is through the blue night radio; as its dj, he often shares bits of himself you’ll learn to put together little by little and love as a whole. he’s a soloist, too, with two officially promoted albums (Base and She Is) and a self-composed compilation (Story Op.1) released.

onew is their strength, their main pillar; someone who doesn’t impose his views on the boys and who, in exchange, is extremely respected and loved by each of them (despite his dad jokes and bad puns - they adore him, I’m not even joking). no wonder he won leader of the year back in 2015. ah, yes - he’s a prime example of sunshine incarnate. (he acts, too! he was a rockstar on the musical Rock of Ages and a doctor on Descendants of the Sun.)

the boys are so genuine in themselves, to each other and to everyone else those who work with them are all about compliments and admiration

and it’s not without a reason everyone says they are a family

must watch (in my humble opinion): The Ultimate GroupSHINee’s Surprise Party for JonghyunVlive SHINee Begins and this mess of a promotional video

something I highly recommend checking on in terms of dancing and singing skills and the relationship between the members in general: their concerts. the first one I’ve ever watched was the SHINee World Concert III (which is still my favorite!) and if there’s anything that made me fall even harder for them, like… that was it. I can’t find link for all of them, sadly, but here you have the JATSWCII and SWCIV in full and playlists for the BMU TourI’m Your Boy Tour and DxDxD Tour.

some blogs that will help you out getting familiar with them are @fyjjong and @shineesubbed.

Tsukishima has never liked being touched.

A pat on the back, a hug from a relative, a friend nudging his ribs - it’s an invasion of his personal space, and he hates it. It’s awkward, uncomfortable. A reminder of how different he is, because normal people seem to like it, and that’s just not him.

Well, that’s how it seems at least, because what Tsukishima does like is watching. He’s good at it, too. Choosing somewhere to sit, headphones on, eyes looking. Picking up details. The way that Suga looks when Kageyama makes an incredible set - proud, but also sad. The way that Nishinoya squints when he focuses, so enveloped in the game that he even sometimes misses his teammates chatter.

He sees it all, and sort of files it away. He’s not sure why; to pass the time, maybe. Maybe it’ll help on the court. Regardless, his outward demeanor is cold and unapproachable, which keeps most from bothering him.

The only person who doesn’t seem deterred by it is Yamaguchi, but, that’s different, because it’s Yamaguchi. He’s the only one who gets him, and doesn’t push his boundaries. They’re friends, and, truly, the only person Tsukishima could really call a friend is him. That’s okay, though - it’s not like he needs a million friends. He’s happy with one. He has things to focus on, like school, and getting into a good college.

But of course, it can never be that simple, because a bunch of idiots just have to come along and wrestle their way into Tsukishima’s life.

A/n: I have a weird trend to make fics in this style with only people called Peter.

Warnings: None!

P.s: This was kinda going to be a Multi part story before i realized it would probably be a better drabble.

(Part Two)

You would be the death of Peter. He just knew it.

Every time he saw you walk into class, His heart stopped, And he swore that time slowed down. Yes, You were the complete opposite of him, But would that stop him from having those thoughts? God no.

You were the epitome of cool. Wearing things that the school could ban people for. Short skits or tight jeans, Jackets, Dc.Martens, V-Necks and all. No one would ever call you out on it though. You’d skip school whenever you wanted, And didn’t care if someone spread rumors about you. Maybe you had little friends, But if you wanted them it could happen at the flick of a wrist. You basically ruled the school without having to be any kind of bully. Without having to be utterly flawless. You were far from flawless, But in the best way possible.

Peter had his eyes on you the second he went to his new school. For reasons he really never knew. He didn’t have too many crushes, But his few did not follow the trend of you. They were so ordinary. He wishes he could know why he fell so damn hard for a person he barely ever said 10 words to. 

But you were beyond beautiful to him. More gorgeous than any other person he’d ever met. When you managed to show up for classes you got good grades, Seemed kind and caring, Saved teens who were getting bullied (Which included him before it happened), You were queen of doge-ball (The only type of gym thing you showed up for… That he noticed. Not in a creepy way.), You border lined being a basic teenager.

But there was so much more stuff that was interesting about you.

He honestly believed that you were the most unique person in the whole school. There wasn’t much to compare too, Though. In a school of people who followed the same code. And looked all the same. You never stayed on the track on every other boring person. And that could be told just by your looks. When your personality shined it was more apparent. 

Peter really wanted to speak to you. Even if it was just once. You were a sort of unsolved case. He could tell a lot, But not everything. And he longed to know. Yes it would be nice if he could end up being your friend. And he’d admit he’s thought about it, More than he should have. But someone like you would never consider him, A dorky know it all boy whom was (In his mind) So many points behind you. If you ever did look at him like he looked at you he’d seriously think he was dreaming. 

Peter didn’t notice he was staring into space until you walked up and talked to him.

“Hey, Kid,” You smiled at him. It seems like you were almost looking into his soul with your stunning eyes, “I like your shirt a lot.” It was genuine. He could tell. His blush rose quickly. Remembering he ironically worse a Spider-Man tee that day. He wasn’t quite sure yet if he landed himself in heaven, Cause you were actually talking to him. Complementing him even.

 You winked at him, And just like that you were gone. He looked back around to see your swaying hips go around a corner. Lord he could stare at you for hours. 

Oh you were sooo out of his league. 

The class project

Morality is an English teacher everyone likes because he teaches all the extra classes the other English teachers won’t. Thes include British Literature, Creative Writing, Intro to Speech and Communication, and the others that are also not required. He is super fun and usually lets students have a say in what they do for class. They choose the books from an approved list for British Literature. Creative Writing is mostly free writing after some fundamental lessons in the beginning. And the kids choose their speech types and topics for Intro to Speech.

Logic teaches AP Psychology, Sociology, World History, and Intro to Sign Language. Students like Logan because he takes late assignments for full credit until the end of each semester. He put this rule in place because in his first year teaching one kid gave him work that was two months late despite a strict late policy. The essays were so well written Logan had to check for plagiarism, the short answers were flawless. Logan realised some kids just need a lot of time so he got rid of deadlines. This didn’t help some students though so Logan devoted a lot of after school time to tutoring students.

Roman excelled in Creative Writing. He was ecstatic when the class project was assigned. Everyone else seemed to be taking the class to get out of English 10. All 23 of them had to make a found poem together. After class the other kids asked Roman if there was any way they could get him to do their three lines for the poem. Roman was confused. “We’re supposed to work together. Once we pick a theme it’ll be a piece of cake. You guys want me to do all sixty nine sentences?”

Anxiety said, “We’ll help you study for the World History final.”

“And AP Psych.” Roman negotiated. His classmates agreed. After school that day the kids pushed cafeteria tables together so they could work. Six of them made a color coded AP Psychology study guide for Roman while four of them made note cards. Another six students made a World History study guide in outline format while five kids made a T chart for vocabulary words. They figured the contrast from the other study guide would help him keep the information separate. Anxiety found three lines for the poem and handed them to Roman with sources attached. He always wanted to work alone.

As all the students were gathered in the cafeteria Morality and Logic saw them from the upper level of the school. Morality said “I knew they could work together. You said the group was too big.”

Logan smirked “I was right. Roman seems to be the only one working on your assignment. The rest have Psychology or World History books open.” His smirk faltered and his voice lowered. “They’re skipping your assignment to work on my classes? These kids do well in my classes. The only one I could see needing to work on my classes is Roman.”

Morality said “Oh my. This is great!” The kids heard him and looked up. Morality gave them a thumbs up and ran to his classroom.

Logan was surprised and followed after Morality. “Why is this great? Isn’t it cheating?”

Morality said “Well, technically it is. But it is a small poetry assignment. It was supposed to be a team work exercise, its extra credit anyway. And while they may be working in sections they’re still working together. They were helping Roman with your classes.”

Logan caught on. “So they had to coordinate the work to make sure all the vital information was included… They all used their individual skills to help the whole group. Genius!”

After the study materials were made and given to Roman most of the kids left. Anxiety stayed behind to quiz him with the note cards. When Roman needed a study break he read the poem to Anxiety. It was not so subtly about their two most shippable teachers. Anxiety’s lines were the very beginning. They walked upstairs to Morality’s classroom to turn in the assignment and saw the teachers looking at each other with heart eyes. Anxiety couldn’t help but knock on the door. Logan took three steps back from Morality and compulsively adjusted his tie and pushed up his glasses. Roman stifled a giggle as he handed the poem to his Creative Writing teacher. “May I read it aloud?” Morality asked as nicely as possible.

“Sure.” Roman agreed shooting Logan a nervous glance.

By the end of the poem Morality and Logan were both blushing, Roman felt like a third wheel, and Anxiety was having a field day over the extreme second-hand feelings. Morality looked at Logan for a solid minute before going to his desk, getting a red marker, and writing “A+” at the top. Logan had to adjust his tie again as Morality slowly pinned the poem to his board. Roman and Anxiety hastily left the room. As soon as they were out in the hallway they burst into laughter.

Anxiety needed to sit down because he laughed until he began to hyperventilate. “Did you see their faces?” He laughed again as Princey mimicked Logan’s face.

Logan walked out a moment later, still in shock a little. “Why are you on the floor?” He inquired.

Anxiety said “I just like to sit on the floor.” He put his hand out and commanded, “Roman help me up!” Roman took Anxiety’s hand and helped him off of the carpet.

Once Anxiety had gotten to his feet Logan said, “The poem was beautiful. Great work.” He didn’t mention the fact they were still holding hands because he could hardly care less. Though he did chuckle lightly as he walked to his own classroom. Anxiety from their hands to Roman’s face.

Roman gasped softly. “Are you uncomfortable with this?” He asked.

But as Roman tried to gently pull away Anxiety held a little bit tighter. He said “Nah this is fine.”

Morality then walked out of his classroom with a satchel full of papers over his shoulders. He locked the door and looked at Roman and Anxiety. “I loved that poem fellas. It made me wish there was a grade higher than an A plus.” He pulled two slips of paper out of his bag. “Here are some bus passes for the 4:30 after school bus.”
They separated their hands to take the passes and sat next to each other on the bus.

As the bus was about to leave the parking lot Anxiety and Princey looked out the window of their seat. They saw Morality kiss Logan on the cheek before getting into his car and driving away. Logan stood there frozen before smiling. Roman rolled down his window to yell “Yeah get some, Teach!” Anxiety laughed, although he was a smidge embarrassed, because Logan was extremely confused.

Roman quickly asked Anxiety if he could kiss him and Anxiety nodded. When Roman actually did it the bus driver shouted “Hey none of that on the bus! The twelve year olds can’t see people making out!” Everyone laughed at the lame and inconvenient rules for public displays of affection, or maybe they were laughing at the expression on Anxiety’s face.


@incorrectprinxietyquotes @trash-the-memelord (I couldn’t think of who else to tag, what do y'all think of this short fic)

“WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES”

I know probably a lot of people have posted this in the tag already but I really like that Seán wrote this because it’s 100% true. We all make mistakes no matter who we are or what circumstances our lives are in. Making mistakes is a part of life, how we learn and what makes us all human. No person is flawless or perfect ever no matter how much it appears that they are on the surface. I don’t want to say to not feel bad for making mistakes because you can never help how you feel and depending on the mistake I have no right in saying that you can’t feel bad about them. But what I’m going to say is though, you make mistakes and no matter how bad they are life always goes on. You can feel bad for making a mistake but don’t spend all your time regretting what you did, you need to learn from it. Like I said before life always goes on and on our journey’s we’re always changing and growing and making our mistakes is just a part of that journey. Everyone makes mistakes and they don’t ever make you a bad person as long as your willing to learn and grow from them. :)

Could you love my flaws if I showed them to you .. not the ones on my skin the ones deep within can I share my secrets? My deepest thoughts ? My fears… could you love me when you shouldn’t even if I made you shed a tear ? I’m not easy to love I do fucked up shit but if you choose to love me though it all. I promise I’ll do my best to never make you quit.

ignis/aranea featuring blind!ignis + the time skip

16. pleasantries

he meets her again maybe two months after noctis disappears, returning to where he last saw her in tenebrae. he tells himself that he’s there to ensure that she made good on her word to see to the people they’d left in her care, but the truth is he wants to check on her too. “weren’t there two more with you the last time i saw you?” aranea asks, aiming for humorous but falling short. ignis nods. “gladio was in good health when we separated and we managed to save prompto. his highness, however…” he trails off and he imagines she nods. “right,” she says. she touches his arm and he revels in the contact. “well, i’m glad to see you made it back alive.”

17. trailer

they take refuge in the remnants of the trailer outside what used to be wiz’s chocobo post. aranea bumps into the stove and then the counter on the other side. she curses loudly, and then remembering that they’re trying to hide while they rest up, she curses again but in a quieter tone. ignis follows behind her and hits nothing. all of these caravans have the same structure and he spent many nights in them back in another lifetime. he moves past her to where he knows the bunks will be and sits down on the spot that always used to be his. above his bunk would be prompto’s, and across from them, gladio would take the bottom and noctis would take the top. he’s thinking about the past again, he realizes, and this probably shows on his face because then aranea sits beside him. she places a hand on his knee and squeezes. “rest now,” she orders, “i’ll be here.”

I don’t know whether to call it liberal feminism or just the general ‘body positive’ 'wear what you want’ movement happening, but it’s had a scary effect on young girls because, it, combined with the hypersexualization of women and the whole instagram beauty culture results in 12-15 year olds looking like they’re in their 20s or close. It’s terrifying because they are supported by other girls who have embraced the tagline for the body positive movement 'wear what you want’, but also the attitude that the overly sexual look is the way to go. And like you have them making youtube channels because they’re exposed to that at such a young age, dressing in ways to sexualize their bodies because they see that’s the look thats in now. It would be a different story if what they chose to wear didn’t consist of high heels, cleavage emphasizing tops, etc but it does and it’s just really terrifyingly. Men are given a pass to sexualize the girls because they’re seen as doing it themselves, and its just all making me shudder. Girls are pushed into being more mature at 12-13 years old and like, they defend their choices with stuff like “its my life, I can dress how I want” and so many people share that opinion, but fail to take into account why a 14 year old would want a push up bra, or why a 12 year old would want high heels. Why are young girls trying to look like they’re in their 20s? Could it be the beauty culture obsessed climate they are being raised in? Even though nobody says that they wear makeup/heels/whatever to please men, where did all of these things originate from? Where did the need to look good come from? Why is it so valued in our society and who benefits from women constantly perfecting themselves to look like flawless dolls with no imperfections? They go through discomfort and pain, for what? Why would women be naturally inclined to conform to superficial standards of beauty if it caused them so much discomfort? Lipstick feminism or liberal feminism has no answers, neither does choice feminism. Think a little more.

He seems to be doing fine without you, doesn’t he?
Like all those memories, all that time spent together, was nothing.
Do you see him continuing on with life as if nothing had ever happened?
Or even worse, do you already see him flirting with other girls even though it’s only been a couple of days since you guys broke up?
It’s okay, really.

You don’t have to pretend to be fine.
You don’t have to go on dates with boys you couldn’t care less about, and post pics with them on Instagram just to show him that you’re doing fine, too.
You don’t have to look flawless every day with perfect make up and hair, and go to parties and pretend you’re having the time of your life, when all you’d rather be doing is sit at home with a carton of ice cream and watch sad movies.
It’s okay to cry;
it’s okay to miss him, go over pictures of you two.
It’s okay to not delete those messages on your phone, contrast to what all the break up advices say.
A broken heart needs time to heal, after all.

And him?
He will realise his mistake, I assure you baby.
One day it will hit him that no, it’s not her that he’d rather wake up in bed with, but you.
He’s going to realise that it’s not her fake blondes and highlights that he wants, but rather your soft brown hair that always reminded him of chocolates.
Her strong perfume might have enchanted him momentarily, but he’s going to wake up one day and realise it’s the smell of your lavender shampoo he misses the most.

So he’s going to come crawling back to you;
one day you might wake up to a 3AM drunken text message from him; the boy who you cried your heart out for several months ago.
You used to stay up till small hours, hoping against hope that he’d be thinking about you too at this time and send a message.
All those late nights going over cute pictures of you two together, of late night conversations you two had shared.
All those tears shed longing for him.
By the time he reaches out for you again, you would have left all of it behind.

So let yourself cry.
Let yourself mourn and be heartbroken.
Let your heart recover from the last time it was broken.

Lazy Sunday

Kuukuya. 202 words.


He considers her as she lies beside him, arms draped lazily across her forehead, cares evaporating with each breath she releases. It is easy to simply exist with her. She draws up one of her legs and turns her head toward him.

“This is nice, huh?”

He wonders if she read his mind. He looks out at their surroundings and closes his eyes.

“It is.”

The sky is flawless, unmet by a single cloud, and a gentle breeze passes over them. Intermittent splashes sound from the pond as the koi swim and flop. Petals fall delicately all around, bathing the scene pink. There is beauty and freedom, but nothing comparable to her.

“You’re zoning out again,” Kuukaku accuses, though her tone is playful.

“I believe it was you that suggested I needed to relax,” Byakuya reminds her.

“Yeah, yeah. I just didn’t think it’d be this weird,” she pauses. “I kind of like it.”

She offers him a wink before covering her head again and stretching, careful not to wrinkle the blanket underneath her. Byakuya leans back into a tree and lets himself slump a little as fatigue sets in.

“As do I,” he thinks.

And they both drift off to sleep.

I’m pretty sure I just met an angel at a Circle K. Five o’clock in the morning in my sweatpants and Henley looking like hot garbage and this angel just comes strutting into the store looking all gorgeous and ethereal with their flawless bedhead and serene little smile. They were humming and chipper and helped a lady pick up her things from the floor when her bag split and they were polite to the cashier and they smiled at me as I walked past them even though I looked like a walking pile of garbage.

They were nice and friendly and overwhelmingly pretty and I feel shook because they were one of the first people I’ve seen in days outside of my roommate and damn.

Just damn

alluringabyss  asked:

Your skin look flawless! Do you use foundation and if so which one? I just can't seem to find one for myself, all of them are too dark/orange

thanks so much!! :D it definitely is not though, I’ve actually had a bad time w breakouts esp around my chin as of late ): I conveniently smooth over them w filters if they’re too obvious LOL, but yes I use foundation! my current one is skin base by illamasqua in the shade 02, it’s so!! pale!!! I love it bc it actually matches my skintone. I’ve also heard the stay matte but not flat foundation by NYX in ivory is really light w decent coverage, so check that out if you’re looking for smth cheaper since the illamasqua one is on the pricier side ^_^ best of luck!
