and album of course

Harry Styles’ new album is going to be earth-shattering. Harry is a perfectionist as we all know. He would never settle for less than a completely new innovation. He is honing his skills as a musician in order to be able to produce something beyond expectations. Judging from his widely varied collaborators, this album may very well define what music in this new century should sound like.

Harry Styles’ new album is going to shock the world. That is what fans need to hear. This album is going to be better than what music fans have become all too accustomed to. This isn’t some prefabricated formula for songwriting. It isn’t going to be something five young boys had to rush through with three months to write and record. Harry is stepping as far away from that kind of writing as possible to give fans the music they deserve.

Lesson n°1 : How to keep up a straight image while having never actually been with a boy or been interested in one by Camila Cabello

So I rewatched the Power 106 FM interview and there’s a few moments that are very revealing on how Camila manage to go along the “straight image” game while at the same time never lying about her actual personal life and the fact that its boy free and actually full of Lauren (theory, don’t get all up my ass please).

Okay the first time boys are brought up in the interview is when they talk about whether or not Sinu is meddling in her love life. Of course the interviewer jump straight into the heteronormative ship (no pun intended) and brings up “friend’s sons” and whatnot. Camila’s response is pretty clear, Mama is out the door, when the person she has a crush on is in the room.

Next stop, the other interviewer, a girl, brings up her own experience at being set up with boys by her mom. Camila comments on it and when she talks about the situation she has a certain gesture :

She points to the girl when she says “with him”, like bitch let’s be clear I’m talking about your story, not mine.

Camila keeps the game up by saying that the “boy situation” is the sahara desert at the moment, no lies there. (p.s : I think that desert is gonna stay empty her whole life)

Also what’s up with that little tilting of the head Camila? Is there something funny? Do you know something they don’t by any chance?

Back to Sinu and how she would discover everything about Camila’s relationship with a boy through her album :

And of course the now iconic Gaymila response :

Another interesting fact is that Camila says right after that Sinu “knew” that she was going through a hard time - might the reason be because Sinu has been on tour with Camila and Lauren for the past 4 years, and that she had a front row seat to witness their relationship? Just a theory.

More boy talk follows (how boring) and the interviewer is still using “him” and “boy” in every sentence - they talk about crushes, and again Camila never specify the gender of these crushes.

(DON’T TOUCH ME!!!)

The only time she directly mentions liking boys is when she’s talking about her childhood, and obviously most kids think they’re straight before anything else.

Again after that the interviewer asks what she’s looking for in a “boy” - Camila never once use a masculine pronoun in her answer, it’s always gender neutral.

She never once used the words “boy” or “guy” directly or use a masculine pronoun - it’s always the interviewer who brings out those words and all Camila does is go along with it, and just like that she fits into the straight box that people put her in (it apparently never occurred to him that she could possibly like girls - fucking heteronormativity) without having to lie or reveal personal detail about her relationship and who that relationship was with. Smart girl Camila, smart girl.

yall about female celebrities: she has to be smart and sexy and YOUNG and fun and SKINNY and independent and of course nice and humble and charitable and of course she has to have at least a 4 octave range and act and write her own songs and be an outstanding performer and she has to hit that choreo hard and of course she needs to be a feminist and be an astute businesswoman but keep in mind that capitalism is destroying the middle and lower class and she MUST be well informed about all forms of social justice and date as few men as possible and never make a single mistake no matter how small or if she publicly acknowledges it or apologizes for it otherwise she is the devil incarnate and of course her album needs to sell at least 500k copies on the first week and her single HAS to go number one on the billboard hot 100 and do better than ANY other female singer EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. otherwise she is just a flop and irrelevant

yall about male celebrities: lol hes just too dumb to understand anything. im surprised he can even put a sentence together. hes daddy af tho!!  😍 😍 😍 😍

ARMY! Thank you so much. This is an award that we have been waiting for a long time and have been wanting to receive ever since. Receiving such an important award for the 4th quarter on such a good day like today, I want to say thank you and I love you the most to ARMYs. We had a concert not long ago. Every time we have a concert, we always spend 20-30 minutes before performing to meditate and talk among our members. There’s something we talked about during that time. We have entered our 5th year and received many invitations from year-end award ceremonies, but we are not allowed to feel that of course we will be invited to year-end award shows, of course many people will come to our concerts, of course many people will listen to our albums. Actually we always think it’s a miracle being invited to such honorable award ceremonies and having someone come to our concerts, buy and listen to our albums. Thank you a lot. And I’d like to, I have to say thank you for all the ARMYs all over the world. We have been waiting for this for a very long time and today we have a good news about the Billboard chart. Thanh you very much. And I’d like to say just remember that we never walk alone. Let’s walk together forever and ever. Thank you very much.

Sincerely thank you to everyone for giving us this big award. There’s something we want to say as we stand in a great place like this. We think it’s thanks to many people’s effort that we can be in front of you guys looking good like this. I want to say thank you to our Bighit family who help us, our hair & makeup stylists and manager hyungs. Thank you very much and our ARMYs, you would know it even if we don’t say but we are always grateful and love you a lot.

And our parents who gave birth to us, Bang Shihyuk PD-nim, Vice President Choi Yoojung, Director Shinkyu, Director Yoon Seokjoon, we love you a lot, thank you for raising BTS. And of course our ARMYs, thank you and I love you.
—  Rap Monster & Jimin & V, Artist Of The Year - Physical Category - 4th Quarter, 2016 Gaon Music Chart Awards

“I don’t think people realize how this $80 million contract came about. It’s not only about a record deal for 3 albums. The break-even is 5 million units PER ALBUM. That includes marketing such as videos, shipments, exclusives etc. I’m guessing Harry will give huge promo which I’m really happy to see. No doubt it will include an Apple Music exclusive.

I mean they were willing to pay $25 million to be able to get the digital selling rights. Harry is high commodity. I’m hoping Target gets on this. How much are they willing to pay for bonus songs? 1D proved to be great physical sellers with MITAM. I have to check again but MITAM sold around 100k or more in just physical retail. Most artist can’t sell physical besides Adele and Taylor Swift.

With 3 days of sales, MITAM sold 103k in physical copies. And this was because Target ran out of stock. With the same marketing tactic, Harry could do the same. So 200k is pretty much guaranteed.

We’ll have to see how the first single does to get a prediction as well as preorder numbers. Then count SEA and TEA (meaning Stream Equivalent Albums & Track Equivalent Albums). MITAM accumulated around 57k units with TEA & SEA. And that was without a so called "hit single” Since then, streaming has exponentially grown and will continue to. We can hope for 80k in TEA/SEA with Harry’s debut.

I think 100k TEA/SEA units are possible but that would lower the pure sale forecast. We could be looking at debut around 300k more or less. I know we shouldn’t compare but this is the closets comparison we have so forgive me. Zayn’s MOM did 157k units and 112k were pure album sales and 45k were TEA/SEA. “IF” Harry does the average of Zayn and 1D numbers then that’s 257k pure sales and 51k with SEA making a debut of 308k units.

But like I said, streaming is growing and pure sales falling so this is just an estimate. A 300k debut is not bad at all. I doubt Harry will pull 1D numbers but I could always be proven wrong. Depends on his marketing team and how well they promote him. Also how the general public takes a liking of him, it would be nice to see different demographics become fans of Harry.

So we have 300k debut, and then DUNKIRK. The movie in itself will serve as promo for Harry. During interviews they will ask about music and vice versa. So Columbia gets exposure for while Harry is out doing press tour for Dunkirk without them lifting a finger. Amazing how Warner Bros & Columbia will save money and earn more to Harry’s rising “star” status. Huge profit for both.

And of course Harry benefits from all this. Like 1D music is huge in Japan but not so huge in China by comparison. BUT China is one of the biggest MOVIE markets in the world. If all goes well, Dunkirk grosses well and the general public in China can buy Harry’s album. Of course music fans of Harry will be watching the movie so both companies win.

This is just the music and acting. We still have TOURING to consider. 1D gathered their biggest revenue here so it’s possible it will be the same for Harry. I mean if he can gross 100m touring on his own that is HUGE profit. Not to mention possible collaborations because you know people will want to work with Harry. And hopefully get a collab with a fashion line.

That adds to Award show appearances (AMA/BBMA/OSCARS/BRITS/BAFTAS/GG/VMA), galas and more. Look at all that profit and exposure. At the end of the day, Harry’s profit and Columbia’s will be more than 80m. Exposure = money in this industry kids.“

Hi :) I know everyone's going on about Kiwi being about babygate, but I really think it might be about the music industry in general, using stunts as an inspiration. If you consider the female in the song being the industry it makes sense because it appears in a way tempting and desireable (but in the end it's really not as great as it seems), but he is also being pushed and has no control (and will in a way regret getting involved with it). I love your blog and I hope you'll consider the idea!

Hi!

Thank you for your kind words.

Your point about the music industry is a really good one. I think “Kiwi” is, in a way, about the unsavory aspects of the industry.

“MMITH” expresses the ambivalence of being caught in between– wanting to advance, but knowing there are consequences. It can be interpreted as an addiction of sorts (with mentions of morphine).

“Kiwi” offers another take on this addiction. The metaphor is an addiction to the sort of girl/ love that everyone likes.

The cigarettes, the intellect, the hard liquor, the marks of a glamorous rock ‘n roll life– the groupies, the available sex, the available drugs (so much cocaine, it can constantly fill up the Holland Tunnel!)– they all seem like irresistible lures. All the boys (the musicians) are drawn to it. These are the goodies associated with a rocker’s life, and glamorized by journalists like Cameron Crowe.

But the beautiful girl is an illusion. The music industry is a façade, like a beautiful girl who goes home to a cactus– a plant that requires no maintenance. It’s a plant for lonely people who want companionship without the work. It’s an empty life.

The girl is an actress, someone whose warmth is completely fake.

She’s like the music industry executives, managers, PR machine who talk about taking care of musicians, but really just want their baby– their music, their revenue.

“I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business.”

The music executives seduce the musicians and take their babies. They behave like prostitutes. But instead of a straightforward sex transaction, where a customer pays for sex, and the sex-worker gets money, in this case, the executives just want the product. They want the music and the revenue. They don’t care how they get it.

“It’s none of your business.”

Once the baby is conceived, the industry takes care of business, the financial aspects. It’s out of the musicians’ hands.

The ironic, bitter reference to babygate isn’t so different from this interpretation, really.

Stunts are a way for the industry boosts revenue, through PR.

Fans are interested in stunts. Stunts fan the fandom flame. Stunts keep the fandom alive when there’s no music. Stunts stir emotions.

This isn’t limited to the 1D fandom. Almost every celebrity pairing can represent a stunt, always tied to selling something– an album, a movie, a project.

Fake relationships are par for the course. We’ve seen many of them. In fact, reviewers and interviewers can’t stop referring to Taylor Swift. Stunts have legs (pun intended). A two-month stunt can create news for years. Pathetic, right? But there’s money in it.

Can stunts go too far? Fake babies, for instance?

“I’m having your baby.”

Do these words refer to a real-life situation?

The words are so specific, and so connected to the One Direction fandom, that I don’t see how they can represent an innocent metaphor. Every reviewer states that these are strange words.

But they’re not RANDOMLY strange. They’re pointedly, knowingly, bitterly, coyly strange.

The words are savage, and sung in a savage way.

The words sound like a threat and a boast.

I’m having your baby. What are you going to do about it? Nothing, because it’s out of your hands. You signed on the dotted line. You’re going to pay and pay, and there’s not a damn thing you can do.

I don’t think Harry is making fun of Louis’s situation, at all. I think he’s FURIOUS. Louis is suffering unimaginably, and Harry sees it. He suffers too. It’s a call-out to the people who put them in this situation.

Who pushed the Babygate narrative hardest? Who was earliest with the news?

Answer: the media associated with 1DHQ.

Who in the celebrity gossip media most associated with 1DHQ?

Dan Wooton.

Where is he from?

New Zealand. He’s a Kiwi.

I don’t know if this is the correct guess, but it’s something @larry-god-mother told me, and I think it’s pretty brilliant!

Newbies won’t remember this but back in 2014, we were getting ready for Four to drop and 1D released the tracklist for the album, and of course Stockholm Syndrome was on it. And man oh man, there was some discourse from that, lol. People were mad, and uncomfortable; called the track Offensive, said it was in poor taste, blahblahblah. Looking back now, the discourse would have seemed minor, but back then it was pretty angsty and dramatic.

…. And then the track leaked, and everyone was like, “OMG THIS IS SUCH A BOP YAAAAAS BABIES” and then Harry said it was about a nympho in the Four hangout and the discourse was long forgotten. 

This is exactly what y’all are doing with Harry’s album.

Wait and see. I cannot stress that enough. Hear the words in their proper context before passing judgement, and y’all please stop making asinine theories based on twitter accounts say. Just because they were there doesn’t mean they know what’s going on, because hearing lyrics wrong? Is a thing that happens? lolssjdekjfgirgijgjig. So anyway, that’s my hot take on it all 

- ̗̀  plots inspired by divide // ed sheeran  ̖́-

under the cut you’ll find possible plots for every single song ( 16  )  +1 extra for supermarket flowers from the album ‘divide’ by ed sheeran. everything can, of course, be altered to your likings as these were just some of my ideas. i linked the songs so that you can be inspired a little more as you’re reading the plot!

Alright, I have something that I need to address that I want some opinions on, if I may. With Jonghyun’s Story Op.2 being teasers being released I’ve seen many posts saying “This album is for the gays, no heteros allowed!!”, “Unfollow me if you don’t believe this album is for the gays” (not joking) 

And of course the type of posts that have always been around “Jonghyun is gay he is not straight” etc. and with those there are always the posts of “HE IS NOT. GAY.” 

Fine, this is to be expected. Now I asked for opinions on this so I think it would be appropriate if I gave my own first. As a bisexual(member of the lgbt community yes..) I can’t help but feel VERY uncomfortable by the posts and rants in tags from various blogs that I FOLLOW about Jonghyun’s sexuality. I don’t know if it’s even focussed on him, I feel that a lot of the time it’s just simply the opportunity to take jabs at “the straights”, a phrase I’ve read about 10 times today on various posts about his new album. 
We don’t know, we aren’t OBLIGED to know. As a fans we have no need to know as it shouldn’t change the way we view him as an artist and performer. It makes us look immature and childish. 

Of course every blog is entitled to say whatever they would like. However, just keep in mind that deeming anyone as queer OR straight is so damaging to the individual, with who we only know as an artist and performer. I am positive that as fans we wish only the best for Jonghyun in his album release and in general so I ask that we keep his wellbeing in mind and treat him and each other with respect. 

[TRANS/INTERVIEW] GRAZIA Magazine April 2017 Edition - Himchan & Daehyun

B.A.P Himchan and Daehyun’s relationship is much like that of ‘Tom and Jerry’. It turns out that B.A.P fans have already compared them to such from a long time back. At the sight of them bickering without rest, (we) asked “(what if you guys) fight at this rate,” Himchan and Daehyun both answered at the same time, “this is playing!” and caused a big laugh.

HIMCHAN’S TASTE

Daehyun’s thighs vs Jongup’s butt
If you absolutely had to have one…,
Jongup’s butt. I’ll refuse anything that’s Daehyun’s (laughs).

Bungee jump vs Skydiving
Ah… (I) have a lot of frights (I’m scared of it),
(so I) give up

Kakaotalk vs Phone call
Phone call. It’s annoying typing out texts.

Sleepiness vs Hunger, the thing that’s harder to resist is?
Sleepiness. I have a lot of sleep

Party vs Time alone
Party with friends and alcohol.

DAEHYUN’S TASTE

Straightforwardness vs Beating around the bush
Straightforwardness. (I) don’t like it when there are misunderstandings because of words (talking).

Ballad vs Dance
Still dance (for now). (I) like it more when (both) vocal and dance skills are distributed (and) displayed. Like Bruno Mars.

Mello vs SF Movie
Mello. (I) originally (always) liked mello. Especially <A Moment to Remember>(, I) wanted over ten times.

GRAZIA INTERVIEW

It’s the first time doing a photoshoot with just you two, right?
HC,DH (at the same time) yes.

Were the other members not jealous?
DH They were making fun of us saying “We’re going to sleep in~”
HC (They said that they’re) happy that they don’t have a schedule. But the other members are probably at the practice room right now as well.

(We’re) curious what time of conversation was passed on the way to the studio.
HC
The two (we) didn’t say a single word (laughs).

Really? (We) heard that (you) two are the most chatty, (I) guess not.
HC It’s the truth. (But) in the morning(, we) two (both) don’t have words (don’t talk a lot).
Normally(,) even if it’s just (us) two(, we’re) on fire (chatty).

What do you guys do to play normally?
HC (I) drink alcohol (laughs).
DH (I) eat outside, (and) eat inside the dorm as well.
HC But because this friend ran away from the dorm…,
DH Look at this hyung? Don’t misunderstand. (He) means that (I) became independent from the dorm recently (left the dorms to live on his own).

Yongguk, who left the dorm first, left with the reason that “the members don’t clean.” Why did Daehyun leave the dorm?
DH It’s the same. If (you) see Himchan hyung and Jongup’s cleaning style(,) anyone would want to run away. For example(, they) file (their) clothes on the floor like pancake. (I) suffer from rhinitis and also have sensitive skin(,) so (I) try to be clean(,) but this is impossible in the dorm.

(I) also saw the video where Daehyun scolded Himchan saying to please stop wearing my (Daehyun’s) clothes without permission. How is it recently?
DH Yesterday as well(, Himchan) hyung wore without my permission the shoes that (I) left in the dorm and was caught red handed. So I plan to wear Himchan’s clothes (without permission) as well.

(We’re) curious how Himchan will counterattack?
HC Daehyun and Yongguk are almost at the level of a neat freak. Especially Daehyun is an FM (Field Manual) type (sticks to the set plan). (He says that) everything has to go the way that it’s been planned for (his) heart to be settled. Sometimes(,) it’s tiring because of that.
DH I’ll reveal something again. (Himchan) hyung has a lot of sleep(,) so it’s difficult waking him up every time in the morning.
HC Ah! I thought of something to counterattack. When (we) drink alcohol(,) Daehyun often gets up (and leaves) first. Even if serious conversation is being passed(,) if it becomes the time that (he) had set to go home(, he) leaves without looking back. At those times(,) it’s somewhat disappointing (sad/hurting).
DH If I don’t get up (and leave) like that(, you guys) are going to keep holding (me) to stay.

(You guys are an) idol group, is it alright if (you) keep talking about drinking alcohol?
DH It’s alright, (because) I quit drinking alcohol (laughs).
HC Is that why (you) eat so much recently?
DH That’s right. Until before the music video recording(, I) lost a lot of weight(,) but because of this(, I) gained 4kg more.
HC Ah~ Diet! (I) want to stop eating chicken breast.

(You guys) must be on a diet.
DH (We) two both really like eating(,) but during promotion period(, we) control our gluttony. (Our) styles are a little different. (Himchan) hyung likes spreading out a variety of food and eating it(, while) I go for one food.
HC Because it’s important for an artist to have a variety of experiences (laughs).

(I) think to gain experiences(,) traveling is the best choice. Do (you) travel as well?
DH Early this year(, I) went to Sapporo. It was (my) first out of country travel(, but) it was really good. (I went) shopping, ate good things, (and) saw snow.

What did Himchan do during the break?
HC I went to New York and LA and came back. When B.A.P had a little over a year’s worth of break(, I) lived in New York for about three months(; but I) want to go back. (I) traveled around wherever my feet led me.

(We) heard that (you guys are) leaving again on a world tour soon. (And) that (you) plan to open a Seoul concert prior to it in the coming March 24~26.
DH Last year(, we) opened large concerts at a lot of different countries(, but) this time(, we) plan to hold smaller concerts at less countries. Should (I) say that it’s closer to a fanmeeting?
HC (We) planned a lot of time to communicate with the fans.

During the past winter(,) Bang Yongguk(,) who is both the leader as well as the oldest hyung(,) had to leave the team temporarily due to his panic disorder diagnosis. (We’re) glad that (you guys) could promote again as 6 (and) a whole again.
DH (I) believed that Yongguk hyung will return healthy again, but (I) didn’t think that this day would come this quickly.
HC (I feel) that finally now B.A.P has become perfect again. Not only just Yongguk, but it feels really empty when someone leaves the team.

Matching teamwork again after a long time(,) what type of conversation was passed?
DH (We) each calmly welcomed (Yongguk) hyung’s return in our own ways. (I feel that) this type of method fits the best for someone that is manly and with little words like Yongguk hyung.
HC Rather than words(,) it’s more important to show (him) trust with actions.

In place of Yongguk(,) Himchan(,) who is the same age as Yongguk(,) acted as the leader.
HC There was a lot of burden. Because Yongguk and I have different methods of leading the team(,) our connection with the members fit well(, but since I) had to act alone as half of a leader.
DH The two are complete opposites. If you compare it to a family(,) Yongguk hyung is the simple (and) brave (dependable) father(, while) Himchan hyung(,) should I say(,) like closer to the kind mother who shows plenty of affection?
HC Perhaps because of that(,) the dongsaengs (the younger members) treated me like whatever (laughs).
DH Hey, we worked harder to treat (you) more comfortably because you might suffer alone. Since Himchan hyung often plays along with the dongsaengs (the younger members) goofing around. Anyways(,) for B.A.P(,) both hyungs are necessary.

When did (you) feel Yongguk’s absence the most?
HC When (we) got on the stage. (We were) worried that due to Yongguk’s absence the empty space might look big.
DH Moreover(,) it was when we had released a full album and not a single(,) so it’s the truth that we were under confusion as well. But in times like this(, we) as five worked “really, honestly, (to our) greatest extent” the hardest.
HC And that is why the result of the single album <Rose> released March 7th is really important. It is of course Yongguk’s return, (but there are also) a lot of situations tied in.

What type of situations are (you) talking about?
HC Early this year(,) B.A.P faced our fifth anniversary. While happy in one part(, I was worried) that the days that B.A.P can promote as a whole is not that much left. Firstly(,) Yongguk and my age is now twenty eight…,
DH This means that after about 2 years(,) the (Yongguk and Himchan) hyungs have to go to military.
HC (I) don’t think that there has been a time that B.A.P as a whole has been able to complete a big picture. So that is why during the preparation of this album(, I) portrayed my opinion strongly more than before.

(We heard that) while choosing the title song(,) it was changed 4 times. In this step as well(,) was Himchan’s influence big as well?
DH
There were three songs in competing. At first(,) by the company’s suggestions(,) ‘Distopia’ was the prime candidate as the title song. But giving this and that different reasons(,) Himchan hyung persisted on ‘Diamond 4 Ya’. The other members were for ‘Wake Me Up’.
HC (I) felt that ‘Distopia’ was too obvious (a choice), (and I) didn’t like the beginning arrangement of ‘Wake Me Up’. But if (B.A.P released) a trendy song like ‘Diamond 4 Ya’(, I felt that) it could be a chance for B.A.P to advance one step further.

In the end(, you guys are) promoting ‘Wake Me Up’.
HC (I) quickly folded my stubbornness (gave up) (laughs). Instead(,) while arranging ‘Wake Me Up’, (I) strongly requested that “please have this be done this way, (and) that be done that way.”

Looking over B.A.P’s promotion records(,) there wasn’t a lot of the members’ personal promotions. Is there no plans to release albums as a solo or a unit(,) or to expand your areas toward acting or entertainment?
DH (I) feel that it will remain this way for a while. Last year November, while promoting a song called ‘SKYDIVE’(, I) suddenly had this thought. “Ah, (I) should try working harder as a whole group!”
HC There are still a lot of people that do not know about B.A.P’s existence (laughs).
DH This is the first time I’m saying this here(, but). (I am) really thankful of Himchan hyung(,) and on another side sorry. (Himchan) hyung is talented in many ways in music as well as entertainment skills, but (Himchan) always puts team promotions first.

What part of Daehyun does Himchan think is outstanding?
HC Acting, leading (a program), singing, dance, et cetera(,) whatever he does(, it feels) natural. (He also) gets along with whatever group he is with. So (I) often push him saying, “do something,” but Daehyun keeps taking his foot out (not going with it).

Are you following after (Himchan) hyung’s meaning to put team activities first?
DH It’s more that (I) don’t think it’s time yet. (Perhaps that I want to) polish up a little more? There has been times that (I) attempted this and that while not completely prepared and ended up disappointed.
HC But still starting from the end of this year(, we) plan to expand personal activities. Perhaps (we’ll) start from B.A.P’s main MC Youngjae.

From on forth(,) how will the two people(Himchan and Daehyun)’s life flow on?
HC (I feel) firstly that (I) want to focus on this moment (now). (You) can’t tell what’ll happen even tomorrow(,) so how can (you) draw out a far future.
DH (I) can’t think of anything else other than practicing so that (I) may become a closer to perfection as a singer.
HC But(,) if there is one thing that (I) wish for(, it’s that) even after coming back from military service(,) that (I) want to (still) be a B.A.P member.
DH It will be like that. You can believe it. Rather than words(,) I’ll show it through actions, like (Himchan) hyung!

This is for the ones who like to call Zayn a drug addict and now are saying Liam is high in all his snapchats posts. Look at your golden boy/angel without wings. Now is it going to be normalized? He’s a rock star now, isn’t he? He can do it. Or are you going to say that the fact he wrote it, doesn’t mean he experienced what it’s written in the lyrics?

Launch (Blurb)

One last blurb before we all die. R.I.P us.

———————————————————————————————-

You can feel the bed shift with Harry’s weight as the sudden movement jolts you out of sleep. You don’t know what time it is, but it must be the middle of the night because you went to bed just before midnight and feel as though you’ve been asleep for a few hours at least.

The room is dark as you blink your eyes open and turn, only to find your suspicions confirmed and Harry no longer beside you. His half of the blanket is bunched down near the foot of the bed and you just barely see the bedroom door close softly behind him as he leaves the room and heads down the hallway.

You’re still half asleep but the absence of his body next to yours is enough to wake you up a bit. It’s unusual for Harry to get out of bed in the middle of the night, other than when he needs a quick run to the toilet, but the bathroom that is connected to your bedroom is not where he’s gone this time.

You groan and throw the blankets off of your own body, shivering a bit as the cool air hits your bare skin and your toes hit the carpet. You pick up a discarded jumper that Harry threw on the floor the evening before and slip it over your head, crossing your arms and tiptoeing across the room until you reach the door.

Harry has turned the hall light on, causing you to squint at the sudden intrusion of brightness. You follow the hallway until you round the corner into the kitchen. He’s turned a dim light on in there as well and you can see him sitting at the table with an empty mug in front of him; you can hear the tea kettle bubbling on the counter and he doesn’t seem to notice you standing there.
