I don’t know if this is something anyone would be interested in, but I recently returned from visiting Korea where I entered one of SF9′s fansign events. If you’re curious to know how they interacted with me as a foreign fan, I’ll explain below. I tried to condense as much as possible, but it’s lengthy. Also, if you have any questions, you can ask me (:
Hello! Since it’s Remus’ birthday, I was
wondering if you could do a young Remus and reader, where the reader throws
him a party and gives him a surprise just the two of them later? Fluff is
always great, and whatever else you feel would fit :) hope this isn’t too
vague, thanks!! Xoxo
I had something plan for Remus today because of his birthday and your request really help me structure out a plot so thank you
so much for requesting it and I hope you like it! xx
You were beyond grateful that Peter was the worst when it
came to Defense Against the Dark Arts, even though it was his birthday, you
knew Remus was kind and selfless so he wouldn’t say no his best friend when he
asked for his help for their upcoming test later on in the week. Thanks to that
Remus was going to spend the whole day with him in the library tutoring him. You
were currently barking out instructions to your fellow Gryffindors,
“James, that streamer needs to look cheerful, it looks
bloody limp and I won’t stand for it.” You yelled at the poor boy who was
carelessly throwing the streamers around the stairs that lead to the
“Y/N, the house elves are wondering if you needed any more sweets.”
Lily asked as she entered the common room while balancing two trays full of
cookies. You rushed over to help her, leading her towards the food table.
“No, I think we have enough, we probably have enough to feed
the whole school!” You said cheerfully.
“Hey doll! Where do you want the banner?” Sirius called out
to you, his wand pointed at a floating birthday banner. You directed him
towards the middle of the room, he nodded and did as you instructed.
Soon enough the common room was filled with excited faces,
all of them eagerly waiting for the party to start. Remus was liked by all, no
one hesitated when you asked them if they would like to help you set up a small
birthday party for him. They all knew there would be nothing small about this
party, you and Remus were the definition of couple goals. For Valentine’s Day
he filled your room with countless of different color roses, and had heart
shaped boxes of chocolate delivered to you in the classes you didn’t share with
him, for Christmas you spent a whole week knitting him a scarf and a sweater,
many of your friends would find you in the astronomy tower asleep in the early hours
of the day. They knew this party would be just as special as the things you
both did for each other.
“Pads, I know no one has ever told you this, but blow. Blow
like you mean it.” You said as you approached Sirius and his sad attempt of a
“Hahaha, very funny. It’s not my fault that when I try to
blow them up with magic they explode.” He muttered.
In less than an hour the room was decorated, it was now time
to put into play part two of your plan. You needed Remus to be completely
surprised, and surprising Remus was not an easy task, luckily you and James had
an elaborate plan. The Gryffindor quidditch team was in need of a new beater,
you had been pretending to be practicing with James for the last week, and
today you told Remus that you were going to be practicing while he was tutoring
Peter, and he walked you to the pitch this morning before he went to the
library with Peter. Remus has been walking you there, seeing you practice and
waiting for you outside the locker rooms every afternoon for the last week
except for today. It was the perfect plan, James told the rest of the team and
they went along with it, it was a complete lie that they needed a new member,
but the current beater was away visiting family so it worked out perfectly.
“Remember James, you got to really sell it, but don’t get
carried away. He won’t buy it if you tell him I cracked my skull open.”
“I know, I know. I’ll just tell him you took a nasty fall
and we brought you to the common room and you’re waiting for Madam Pomfrey.”
James said, rolling his eyes as you fussed over him. Remus knows that you hate
hospitals, it wouldn’t be a surprise to him that you refused to go to the
hospital wing in the castle. James set off and you started lighting up the
birthday cake candles as the others around you hid.
“REMUS! REMUS!” James wailed as he charged through the
library doors and towards the table where Remus and Peter were sititing.
“James, keep your voice do-” Remus began to say as he looked
up from his notes.
“IT’S Y/N.” James interrupted, at the mention of your name
Remus stood up, a worry look washing over his face immediately.
“What is it? Is she okay?” he questioned as he hastily
gathered his things.
“She fell off her broom, a bludger knocked her over, she’s
in the common room waiting for Madam Pomfrey with Lily and Pads.” Remus
sprinted out the room, James and Peter following behind. Part of James felt
guilty for lying to his best friend with something as serious as this, but the
other part was extremely excited to see his face when he sees the party you
have for him.
He practically screamed the password to the Fat Lady and
barged in, the room was pitch black and before he could ask, he was met with
thunderous yells and cheers.
“SURPRISE!” he was shocked, frozen on the spot.
You and Sirius emerged from the middle of the crowd,
carrying an enormous chocolate cake with too many candles.
“Happy birthday, love!” you cheered. Your plan had worked,
you had successfully surprised your boyfriend.
“So you’re not hurt?” he whispered.
“I’m sorry love, but I needed to truly surprise you.” You
answered, he started laughing, James grabbed your end of the cake so you could
go and congratulate the birthday boy properly. You basically tackled him into a
massive hug, throwing him slightly off balance.
“I can’t believe you did all of this for me.” He said, voice
full of awe.
“Well I did have some help.” You responded, you led him
towards the cake so he could blow out the candles.
“BLOW REMUS, BLOW.” Sirius cheered, making Remus blush, you
laughed at his antics as the rest of you sang ‘Happy Birthday’ dramatically and
“Don’t forget to make a wish.” You whispered in his ear.
“What more could I ask for?” he said before kissing your
cheek and blowing out the last of the candles.
The party was still in full swing even though it was well
past curfew, you still had one more present for Remus so you politely excused
yourself and Remus from the group and led him towards your room. Of course
Sirius made some cat-calls as he saw the two of you heading upstairs but Remus
flipped him off, laughing.
“Okay, close your eyes and put your hands out.” You
instructed. He nodded, an eager smile playing across his lips. You placed a
neatly wrapped box on his hands.
“You can open them now.”
“Another gift?” he asked.
“Well even though the party was my idea, it was a group
effort, this is not.” You said motioning to the box, prompting him to open it.
He opened it and gasped as he pulled out a beautifully decorated scrapbook. It filled
with pictures of the two of you, starting from before you were when you finally
became a couple in third year, going to the Yule ball together, the countless
adventures you had with him and the marauders, and everything in between.
“Y/N, this is the greatest gift anyone has ever given me.”
He breathed out, eyes glistening and full of love.
“Well Remus, you happen to be the best thing that ever
happened to me.” You said with a soft smile.
He set the book down carefully and closed the distance
between the two of you, capturing your lips with his own. You spent a few
minutes enjoying each other’s company, but the silence and your far too many to
count kiss, was soon disturbed.
“Oi, stop fooling around and come join the party.” A voice called
out from outside your room.
“YEAH, I’M FAR TOO YOUNG TO BE AN UNCLE.” Another one called
Leave it to Sirius and James to ruin the moment, you both
laughed as you opened the door, Remus promptly swatted their heads as you both
made your way out, making you laugh.
The party carried on into the wee hours of the night, Sirius
somehow got a hold of a few bottles of Firewhiskey so the party was even louder
than before; James was trying to lead a conga line like he had seen in a muggle
party once and Lily was trying to control him. You and Remus both laughed as
you partied on with your friends.
Remus’s birthday was a success and you couldn’t be happier.
hahaha guys the musical version of Romeo and Juliet is just so quality, honestly:
French? Hungarian? You can listen to the soundtrack in English probably, but pick a language and prepare for An Experience
French version is Romeo et Juliette, and it’s the original play/music
the Montagues and Capulets are color-coded. Pretty sure it’s supposed to be red and blue, but honestly, it’s more like magenta and violet. Sharkboy vs Lavagirl, omg
everyone’s hair is so Extra in this version
the d a n c i n g
Les Rois du Monde. Just that song/scene
everyone looks like MCR Killjoys era, and the general visual and musical theme is like, Mad Max if governments still existed
everyone! is so! gorgeous! and amazing!
i just love Juliette a lot in this version, okay?
dialogue updated to more modern language (as far as my subtitle-reading self can tell) and it works really well
nobody cares about Romeo’s lonely soul because everyone is too busy TEARING UP VERONA IN SYNCHRONIZED DANCE STEPS
okay, so I’m a bit biased. I think you should watch both! Definitely, you should watch the French version, because it’s amazing and original! but actually, if you’re going to only watch one of them, you should watch the Hungarian version because:
Benvolio is like 97% more Personality in this version
T H E DANCING
alas, the color-coding is not nearly as obvious, but do not fear, because the hair is cranked up to 300% to make up for it
idk if this was a mistranslation or if this is genuinely the closest English meaning to match the Hungarian, but somewhere in the middle of a really serious song, Romeo says something like “my buddies, my friends” and I can’t stop laughing
Juliet is so pretty and cute and she’s just so excited to fall in love! and meet someone who is cute and nice and wants to kiss her!
if you didn’t already ship R&J you’re freaking going to now they’re so cute i’m literally covering my face with my hands and squealing
pretty much every time Benvolio and Mercutio are sharing the stage, I cannot stop smiling
this Romeo is like Romeo+Hamlet. he’s all introspective and premonitions of doom, so it punches you in the feels that much harder when it turns out he’s RIGHT
the Montagues are a pack of young, feral, hedonistic, heathens and it’s fantastic
the serious parts are actually serious, and they’ll tear you up, let me say. if you didn’t feel feelings about the deaths and the suicides before, you will while watching this musical
(those last 6 are true of the French version, too, I just stuck them in here because I’m biased)
FINALLY FINISH… took me 2 days… dear god i hate color pencil hahaha. 😄 So what happens if your laptop is at downstair and too lazy to go down to go get your laptop just to bring it upstairs?… Well you get Apollo Fucking Justice IN PRISMACOLOR. GOODNIGHT~!! *drop mic*
Hahaha I’m so weak! I saw these miniature bunt cake pans at the store & promptly made Tamriel Sweet Rolls at home.
(Used a bananabread recipe but I left out the nuts & replaced the mashed banana with pureed apricots … cuz color, & why not?)
Ya, they don’t look exact, but oh well, it was fun!
