2045 days. 5 years. you’ve worked hard boys and we thank you for sticking together, even when conversations of disbandment, and many other unhappy moments happened. let’s walk on a flowery path and create everlasting memories from now on, with only tears of joy and radiant smiles. thank you, nu’est.
so uhhh a couple months ago i was part of @52pickupstuck and my card was hal as king of spades! however a few weeks before the final collection was going to be posted the person organizing it went completely MIA. we’ve all tried reaching out to them and we hope they’re okay, but it’s been months since the collection was supposed to come out and we’ve all collectively agreed that anyone who wants to post their work can do so.
i’m really really proud of how this turned out, so i wanted people to see it, even if it doesn’t end up being part of the amazing project it was supposed to be. definitely check out the project though, there were a ton of really talented people on it who worked really hard <3
I wanted to create a short, simple guide to the history & origins of the pride flags and get people to learn more about the symbols of our community.
I know this isn’t the complete list, but I wanted to start this off with these 7. Hopefully, in the future I will update and add some more. This has been a long research & creation process. I’m open to suggestions.
DO NOT REPOST. DO NOT DELETE THE CAPTION. And please don’t leave hateful comments.
I really respect Louis for having the lyric video stand for something bigger than him. He’s not just saying that he’s famous so he looks like he has an extravagant lifestyle all the time when in reality he hurts just like us. He’s pointing out that the whole industry is full of hurt people.
Actresses are being sexually harrassed and assaulted, people of color are not given roles they deserve, non cis het people are being hurt for who they are, musicians are in contracts that overwork them their entire lives, etc. All of these things are talked about in the lyric video, and all of these people look as though they have amazing, lavish lifestyles like Louis.
This video is so big and I am so proud and thankful for Louis for having such an amazing lyric video like this. Words can barely describe how much this lyric video means.
Ahh, it’s time for my favorite pastime of combining AUs with other AUs. This time I played around with @mist-lightning-snap’s kwami power swap by combining it with my (slightly altered) genderbends. I also incorporated @princessofharte idea of the kwami’s retaining their personalities same as before, with Jabii being overly-confident and therefore lazy because she’s a tiny goddess of good fortune! What could go wrong! and Yuun trying to be super encouraging despite the misfortune he brings.
Some other details for this au..within an au…
Jabii’s name comes from the Korean word 자비 which means mercy/charity (just added another “i” to fit Kwami naming conventions)
Yuun’s name stems from 厄运 (Èyùn) which is Chinese for “bad luck/doom”
I decided to switch Adrienne’s name to Aurélie, which is something I’ve been thinking about doing for awhile…
I gave Marin a Chinese name, 海明 (HăiMing) which means “bright/clear sea” to go with Marin meaning “sailor/of the sea”
has blue/green eyes and Marin’s are now hazel
“Arlequin” is just French for harlequin and
Aurélie’s is just the feminine equivalent of “minou”.. I was not uh.. feeling too creative in the hero name department today (so it’s subject to change).
I haven’t figured out their powers yet but they will be slightly different from Tikki’s and Plagg’s…
Sometimes Marin wears his hair up out-of-suit but not often. Opposite goes for Aurélie wearing her hair down. She usually has it up somehow.
only know each other in this AU as heroes! Not as civilians (yet)
