also the vocals

Okay I’m so tired of everyone’s shit.
First of all, you made this fandom incredibly toxic. And it sucks. I am sorry for all the supercorp shippers not only because your beautiful ship has little chance to become canon but also because the vocal majority of your fandom are jerks. Also: thank you all my fellow karamel shippers for not following the toxic examples and not spreading hatred in other otp’s tags you are wonderful and amazing!!!
And second of all, yeah, this is Mon El protection post.
I have seen so much hate today because of this particular scene. You know the one I’m talking about. Mon El leaving the girl and saving himself.
What a monster!
Well… yes and no.
I do agree that this is the least heroic thing the person would do. But it’s not a sign of him being abusive or jerky. It’s a sign of him being a pathetic coward.
Raised by highly abusive parents, Mon El was likely given no opportunity to make any decisions in his life whatsoever. So when a catastrophe happens and he is made to leave the planet all by himself, he does the same thing he’s been taught to do his whole life. Obeys.
And yes it’s horrible. And yes, a person more wholesome than Mon El (like Kara herself) would not stand for this and would oppose his parents every chance they get. But Mon El is no such person. Or at least he wasn’t at the point of flashback.
But as soon as he comes to Earth and finds out that he is not only independent now but also is in a position of power, what does he do?
He tries to adjust. He eagerly learns about human culture and way of life. He helps people every chance he gets. And very soon he gets inspired by Kara to try and be a hero.
And yes he lies to her.
When they aren’t even dating.
And aren’t even friends yet.
And he has a good reason because as we all know Kara is super prejudiced against his kind (though she has reasons as well).
And yes he took a long time to tell the truth (news-fucking-flash no one is perfect) but he showed so much character development and potential and absolutely no fucking abusive tendencies so get off of my precious baby and be decent for gods sake.

“have you ever seen a vocal rap like me” no seungkwan no

“vernon does this provoke you / just wait i’ll catch up” (so he’s just purposefully adding vernon’s name into the lyrics not much change other than that)

I know the prop design and little allusions to the books are amazing in the show, but look at this. We see Beatrice’s letter to Lemony in TMM pt2:

Man not allowed to sing at his grandmother's funeral because he's gay
“Anytime someone sins and then acts in the name of God, it causes scandal."
By Sarah Karlan

When 23-year-old Connor Hakes’ grandmother passed away last month, he began making plans to sing Franz Shubert’s “Ave Maria” at her funeral at an Indiana Catholic church. 

He’s been going to the church since he was a kid, including singing with the church, and he also studied vocal performance in college. But when the church’s pastor found out that Hakes was gay via an old photo of him attending a Pride celebration, he sent Hakes a letter informing him that he would not be allowed to sing at the funeral. 

The letter from Pastor Bob J. Lengerich reads, in part:

“Anytime someone sins and then acts in the name of God, it causes scandal. This is the main reason why you cannot (at this time) offer your gifts in service at St. Mary’s.”

“The Catholic Church upholds the dignity of those with same-sex attraction. At the same time, it does not permit same-sex relationships or openly advocating for them because it causes scandal.”

Hakes sang at his grandmother’s gravesite after the funeral instead. Apparently, the bishop who supervises the pastor apologized to Hakes and his family for the incident. But that won’t fix the initial rush of shame, humiliation and sheer meanness that comes from experiencing something like this. 

never forget the moment on v live 5 minute delay when up10tion finished their portion and jinhoo was like “and next is seventeen” and then up10tion started screaming “boOM BOOM !!!” and doing the nipple move and then seventeen started walking in and also started screaming “BOOM BOOM !!!!!” and up10tion got up and bowed and left the room while still yelling and for that one moment 23 dudes were in the same room just screaming “boom boom” at each other and aggressively doing the nipple move

i’m really nervous about posting this BUT 

i do this a couple times a day just singing along to stuff, it’s nothing special but it’s helping me be conscious of how deep my voice is and to try not to default to making my voice higher and a lot of it is rocky but that’s what to expect on 5 months on T, so i’m okay with it

this was i think the second recording i did (i’m very out of breath at some parts and i apologize… i hate apologizing but like i said i’m nervous), i’m not gonna be posting the one where my voice cracks on a high note and i just start laughing but you can definitely hear a couple of them in this one, the hardest parts for me are sunshine - / in the morning but i’ll get there!

this is the shrine/an argument by fleet foxes. there’s an instrumental part in the middle that’s about 50 seconds long and i am way too tired to edit it, so enjoy the distant fleet foxes or skip it!

anyway thank you all for giving me encouragement to post this. it’s the first time i’ve ever recorded my voice and felt actual happiness from it and my voice has changed so much. i really appreciate your support & kindness throughout my journey <3
