and it's actually very fun to make

i am in love with art school graffiti tracer
(there’s a colour breakdown of this piece on my patreon!)

i can’t deal with this sudden interest in the fidget spinner outside of the stim/nd community? so many people are treating it as a fad, using them to do tricks, etc, when they forget what their main purpose is actually for.

it’s become a very dudebro thing to be into, and i can guarantee that a majority of these people who own them make fun of autistic/ nd people. it’s really not fair to take something meant for the disabled community and turn it into something so shallow. 

of course, it’s ok to play w/ the fidget spinner (or any stim toy for that matter), as long as you bare in mind that its main purpose is for the disabled community’s use.

you can’t boil oppression down to a list of tangible, material experiences. a lesbian may grow up in an incredibly supportive, socially accepting community. she may have accepting parents and friends and teachers; she may be an “always knew” lesbian and never experience homophobic violence or harassment.

guess what, though? homophobia, unfortunately, continues to exist. you can’t just isolate yourself from the values and principles that guide and shape your culture. our theoretical lesbian is very, very lucky but that doesn’t actually mean that she is completely unaffected by homophobia.

that’s why privilege checklists, while often well-meaning, are not useful on a fundamental level. it’s why citing anecdotes about someone making fun of you (or even enacting violence against you!) for a certain trait is not “proof” of oppression. shitty, yes. oppressive? not necessarily.

individual experiences are valuable, but they are not always reliable indicators of broader societal trends.

So here’s the thing, on this blog i make lighthearted posts about being a lesbian who likes swords, like “put [this sword] on your blog if you are gay”

And most of the time interactions with this blog are just people finding my posts fun or relatable having a chortle and tagging themselves, their friends, or sometimes theorising which fictional character runs this blog. it’s just some good fun that i and many others enjoy

But very regularly i get straight people saying ‘but what about straight people’ like. all the time. its very annoying.

cause guess what! im not straight! i dont care. go write your own posts, im not writing Relatable Posts for straight people thats not my job why would i do that

however every time im like ‘i dont care about straight people on my gay blog or in my gay life at all actually’ i get inundated with replies about how Mean And Evil i am because im not making jokes for their consumption

In which case i am just a mean evil gay because im not going to start catering to straight people on my gay blog about being gay and liking swords ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

anonymous asked:

So, do you have any cool interesting facts about spiders that would help someone be less afraid of them?

 Spiders are our friends!

They are a very important part of any healthy ecosystem. They eat insects - 400 to 800 million tons of them a year to be exact, including some that can trasmit diseases or are seen as pests by people - and are themselves a valuable food source for birds, small mammals and even fish.

source

In fact, some are even pollinators! Many species of spider use flowers as a hiding spot to hunt for insects. By moving from one flower to another, they can aid in the plant’s reproduction just like a butterfly.

(spoiler: there’s a spider there) source

There is at least one species of spider that actually feeds on nectar, though! Bagheera kiplingi, named after the black panther from Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book”, lives in Central America and eats mostly some nutritious little nubs that grow at the tips of an acacia’s leaves, though they also consume nectar and sometimes, ant larvae. They’re also very pretty.

source

All spiders can produce silk, though not all of them make webs. Spider silk is pretty much a magical substance, with evidence suggesting it has antiseptic properties, is rich in vitamin K, can facilitate blood clotting and neural regeneration and have historically been used to make clothing, strings for musical instruments and as part of microscopes and telescopes - not to mention its super strength and elasticity which is inspiring novel technologies.

source

Although most spiders use their silk to make webs of all shapes and sizes in which they stand and wait for prey to get trapped, others have more creative uses. The Deinopis spiders, for example, make tiny webs that they hold with their front legs and throw at any passing insect like a goddamn cartoon supervillain.

source

The diving bell spiders use their silk to make an underwater cocoon in which they lives for most of their lives. The air inside the coocon needs to be replenished occasionally since it eventually starts shrinking, but scientists confirmed that gas exchange actually happens between the bubble and the surrounding water: oxygen comes in, carbon dioxide goes out.

source

Some spiders even make balloons and kites out of their silk! They can use it to get a ride in wind currents, with some spiders being found floating at a height of five kilometers above sea level. This has allowed spiders to colonize far-away islands where nothing but birds, bats and marine animals can reach.

There’s also social spiders that live in communities, spiders that share their burrows with tiny poisonous frogs as roommates, and spiders that look more lavish than peacocks and also can dance better than you.

source

So yes, spiders are valid and, all in all, very few of them are dangerous to humans in any way. Even those that can have dangerous venom will think more than twice before using it on you, because venom is expensive to make. And today, provided you seek medical assistance immediately in case you actually get bitten, you are likely going to be just fine.

So if you see a spider in your home, try not to be scared! Just think of how its family has survived for millions of years, how many fun facts it hides behind those multiple eyes that watch you while you sleep, and how you can probably thank it for not having less desirable roomies giving you malaria or something.

Dream Daddy rant on male representation done right

I think that what I liked the most about Dream Daddy (there are things I didnt like but thats another story) is that if you get a “bad” ending with the dads and end up single, its not the end of the world. You get a heart to heart ending with Amanda, the light of your eyes that you gave your life to, the child you raised from day one. It is a Dream Daddy game… So it only makes sense that in the end the point is not to get laid or end up with someone (it may be the goal of the game but not the goal of adventuring into Dadhood), but to see your baby as happy and healthy and loved as you wanted them to be.

Why is this important? On one side of the spectrum, in most media the heart to hearts come from a mother or a female lead, because tears and emotions and actual vulnerability are not seen as masculine; they are seen as gay or frilly or just faggy. Hell, media even makes FUN of dads getting overemotional when they see their kid leave or go through something.
And dont even make me start on Dad-Son relationships; a lot of them are portrayed as Daddy not being proud of their sons choices which ultimately becomes a plot device under very toxic premises. The only kids oriented movie exception to this rule that comes to my mind is A Goofy Movie, but its a comedy movie where you see the struggle overloaded with silly moments to lighten up the mood and not scar children for life.
On the other hand, the dad-daughter relationships in media are handled as the Dad being an overprotective figure who will shoot anyone in range who tries to date their daughter. And in the end, the daughter is most likely to fuck something up badly, only for the Dad to fix it and remind their kid that Dads are always right. Which is, oh boy, not always true. In DD we have Pablo who we get our “daddy senses tingling” from when he flirts with Amanda, but answering with the stereotypical overprotective answer wont bring you any good in game, while a more mature answer is more rewarding.

These two stereotypes are in most of mainstream media, and I am very sick of them because they dehumanize men in order to play a trope that will give money to the makers.

In Dream Daddy, on the other hand, men are actual human beings with actual vulnerabilities when it comes to their children. Its not seen as a comedy trope and of all the comedic things that can happen in the game, this is the issue thats taken the most seriously.
And its not just your Dadsona/Avatar, but *all* of the dads who are taken seriously in their emotions. They cry, they worry, they want to know whats going on, they are terrified, upset and proud, and distance hurts them because of how wounded and lonely they feel; but they put their issues aside for the sake of their kids, and its just *huge* how much of a stress overload being a Dad is.
Which in fact, it is. Theres no manual on how to be a good dad; you can fuck up easily. And dont even get me started on teenagers; Hugo and Damien are the examples of that stress. And its even more difficult if you dont have a partner who you can trust, someone who will listen to you.
When you are a person who cares about kids and wants to become a parent (if you dont want to ever have kids thats also good, dont let anyone tell you that you MUST be a parent to be happy), Parenthood is the most stressful, nerve wrecking experience of your life, but its also the most rewarding experience you could ever go through.

And in the end, you may not have a happy ending where you get the hunk of your dreams to hold you through it all. But you end up seeing your child as the strong, beautiful person they are, and it all somehow clicks back into place once again.

anonymous asked:

What's your personal limit on fight-related bullshit in books/movies/tv/etc? At what point do you put it down or turn it off? Can you tolerate the occasional flaming arrow, or...? What are your absolute turn-offs?

I’ll be honest, my limit is excessively low. I mean, I was watching Fate/Zero the other day. I love the 80s Transformer’s Movie (who doesn’t?). I watch Vikings. I genuinely love some incredibly terrible B-action movies, including G.I. Joe. (Ray Park and Byung Hyun Lee are amazing, and G.I. Joe 2 is where I discovered Elodie Yung before her stint as Elektra.) My tolerance is high. So, if I’m put off it usually isn’t the violence itself.

Here’s the three things that turn me off:

1) Not What It Says On The Tin

This is perhaps the biggest turnoff for me. When a movie, book, piece of entertainment establishes itself as A and then does B. I don’t want to sit down with a movie that bills itself as a “hyper-realistic” thriller and get The Mummy. Now, I love The Mummy, it’s a fabulous movie but it’s billed as a wild and wacky summer action flick. It’s big, goofy fun in the best way. It is not, however, a “hyper-realistic” thriller. It’s even worse when the film is trying to be a “hyper-realistic” thriller using an action style pulled from The Mummy. These two could be fantastic together, just drop the “realistic” from the description.

Basically, the piece of entertainment needs to give me what it promised or I’m taking my ball and going home.

2) Sheer Stupidity

This is the bad writing category, when a piece of entertainment is trying so hard to be serious that it doesn’t leave a justification open for balls to the wall style, throw our hands up and throw down, type action but goes there anyway.

It’s not so much that it’s dumb, it’s that the narrative is breaking its own rules and removing the possibility of consequences. Usually this is the classic “Sue” curse, but it can happen to any character in a piece of fiction. I don’t have any patience to read about a character running around knocking out everyone in a castle if there isn’t going to be a pay off for it later.

I’m not against self-congratulatory action sequences that show off how awesome a character is, I just want some narrative consistency to go with it and the scene to have a purpose beyond just that. I like cool fight scenes, but I also like to invest in the characters.

3) Fucking Around With The Audience

I don’t like being played with, tricked, or lied to by a piece of media I’m consuming. There’s a difference between a plot twist and actively fucking around with the audience. I’m not here for movies, novels, comics, or television shows that waste my time.

When the writer is more invested in tricking their audience than they are with telling a good story then that’s when I’m out. It gets worse when the plot twists are nonsensical.

Watching nonsensical fight scenes that exist to pad out a narrative after its run out of ideas is about as fun as watching a five year old slam their action figures together. Actually, the five year old slamming their action figures together is more interesting and the story behind the battle is often coherent.

4) Some In Universe Logic Is All I Want

Mortal Kombat is a very silly movie based on an arcade fighting game, but at least I know what the stakes are and what the participants want. The gratuitous battles make sense in the narrative, even when they don’t.

This is a companion piece to Fucking Around With The Audience but my brain checks out around the time the writer stops caring about justifying a character’s actions in universe. Or, acting in a way that goes against a character’s stated goals. If the character’s decision making cannot rise to the level of a 90s antagonist in a shounen anime then I don’t have time for them. I don’t need the reason for the fight to make sense to me, or to the other characters, I just need it to be in sync with the one starting the violence.

If a character has decided to take the most difficult path to success like knocking out every soldier in a building just to extract one person, then I’d really like that logic explained. Or, the plan was to jump in and save one guy from being attacked by a gang of seven so the protagonist decided to put the whole group into submission holds… one at a time.

However, if the stated goals of these characters are different then I could definitely see it happening.

Q: “Why did you beat up every soldier in that fortress?”

A: “Man, you know, I really hate those guys so I decided to fuck with them! Think about how stupid they’ll feel when they all wake up!”

I really can’t argue with that logic, you know.

Here’s the thing, a character doesn’t have to make the best choice or the right choice or the smart choice. They can be really goddamn dumb, and supported by their setting. The issue is when the writer tries to pretend the decision was brilliant, strategic, tactical, or anything else. That action was their character taking a hammer to a screw. It worked, but it wasn’t smart. For example: Son Goku is not the brightest bulb in the box, but the masses all over the world love him anyway.

All I’m asking for is this: “I wanted to prove myself the strongest fighter, but you dismissed my challenge. Now, I kidnapped your girlfriend and I’m threatening to kill her if you don’t give me what I want. Fight me in an acceptable duel of previously agreed upon terms, coward!”

That’s a character taking a hammer to a screw and watching characters take hammers to screws can be a lot of fun, when its supported by the narrative. Its a combat train wreck. There are entire genres built on it.

My issue is don’t try to lie to me. The motivations don’t need to make sense to me or be what I’d imagine doing, or act as any kind of insert, I just want the character’s motivations, desires, and combat style to make sense to them and be in sync with who they are.

After that, it’s all good.

Why you should buy: Nova 2016-2017

The Nova Corps, if you don’t know, were basically the intergalactic police force of old. Powered by their technologically advanced helmets and armor, the Corps are now nonexistent except for two Novas of Earth: Richard Rider and Sam Alexander. Marvel’s 2016 series Nova, by Jeff Loveness and Ramon Perez, is essentially a buddy cop series in space. Comedy, adventure, drama, family, friendship, romance, and more, Nova has something for everyone, and is (for me) one of the best ongoing comics hitting the shelves.

This comic really compliments Marvel’s more comedic yet heartwarming tone that they’re implementing in their cosmic/space adventure genre. If you like Guardians of the Galaxy in any form, Nova is definitely for you! Some other reasons to read Nova: 

1. Captivating Characters and POC lead

Richard Rider was the original Nova, who died a hero by sacrificing his life for the galaxy, but mysteriously returned to life. Sam Alexander is a mixed Mexican teenager from Arizona who inherited his Nova helmet from his missing father, who was a part of the Nova Corps. While Sam’s character is more focussed in growing up, high school, and family, Richard’s is completely different, tackling issues of life, the difficulties of moving on, and trauma. The contrast between the Novas of new and old also add to why the comic is so diverse when it comes to genres, but instead of feeling convoluted, the narratives compliment each other extremely well. The bond that builds between Richard and Sam create a really interesting and fun dynamic that’s less of a typical mentor/mentee relationship then something much more complex and personal. They both learn from each other and grow through their friendship, which makes their character development intriguing and appealing.

The artist and co-writer, Ramon Perez, is also Latino, and he’s made it clear how much he loves Sam (lol), and is keen on depicting him and his family very visibly Not White. So you’re also supporting creators of color by buying this series! 

(There’s also a talking Russian astronaut telepath dog, Cosmo, who’s a friend of the Novas and a very cute and hilarious addition to the cast) 

2. Gorgeous Art/Colors

Ramon Perez’s art style is extremely dynamic and beautiful, and Ian Herring’s bright color palette full of pinks, purples, and blues create a visually stunning comic. Fight scenes are thrilling, and alien and enemy designs are completely lovely. 

My favorite parts of the comic art-wise is of Richard and the demons that torment and infect him (no spoilers…) These depictions are mind-blowingly gorgeous and haunting. Not much else to say other then to take a look for yourself! 

3. Its Pretty Fucking Funny/Endearing 

Jeff Loveness is a Emmy and WGA nominated comedic writer for Jimmy Kimmel, The Onion, and more. His extremely well-crafted dialogue is full of humor and fun, and the comedy makes the characters even more charming. He also enjoys poking fun at the ridiculousness of the comic world: 

(This scene has like 20,000 notes so why did none of ya’ll actually buy the comic)

I also love how the humor in Sam’s scenes make him a very endearing kid you really want to root for. Sam’s self-doubt and typical teenage insecurity is very relatable and always depicted in the best ways: 

Unfortunately, despite all the good reviews and positive fan feedback, this comic is getting cancelled after 7 issues, which is a huge mistake on Marvel’s part. Nova really feels like its just starting on something big, and it was heartbreaking for me to hear about its cancellationI really wish I wrote this sooner (Loveness and Perez were so bummed out about it, I feel like I personally failed them) but I’ll still do anything to promote this comic as much as possible, the creators deserve that much. Its a very charming and entertaining series, and I love this hidden gem with all my heart! I hope this convinced you to read Nova!

Definitely check out if you like: Starlord, Guardians of the Galaxy, Power-Man and Iron Fist, Ms. Marvel, Green Lanterns, and Blue Beetle. Tbh i’d even say space dramas like Voltron and Cowboy Bebop have a similar vibe.

If you enjoy the comic, please support these creators and sales by buying the comic instead of torrenting! Check out your nearest comic book store, or buy digital issues on Marvel.com or Comixology.com for #1-5!

reioka  asked:

Tony working on something when he hears someone say "math tutor" and he whips around, stars in his eyes. "Did someone say MATH?!" "It's just pre-algebra," his nephew says awkwardly. "I think you mean the BEST ALGEBRA!" By the time Tony's finished helping him figure out pre-algebra, his nephew actually understands math and is excited to go to class. Tony has this way about him to make learning fun even when you're confused. (Honestly a guy that blows himself up that often needs that.)

To Tony everything is the best math so he might not be very representative, but yes.

His nephew is so incredibly ashamed that he doesn’t understand something Tony is a genius about and he is aboslutely not comfortable with asking him for help.

But now Tony heard about his problems and he is already right there, obviously excited about this whole thing, but not mean about it in any way.

Tony is just so enthusiastic about it that it’s really hard to hate math, and to everyone’s surprise he is also very good at explaining stuff.

He uses a very visual way of explaing, using lots of examples, and making it so very easy to get it.

Word about this makes the round with all of the kids (all his nieces and nephews and probably also on the day care floor) and soon he is holding whole classes.

Tony enjoyes it, the kids enjoy it and actually learn and like to learn, in math and physics and chemistery. Tony brushed up on that just for these classes.

Whenever the kids get good grades he is more excited about this than the parents themselves, and when they get bad grades, he doesn’t get all disappointed, he just tries to figure out where the problem is and how he can help.

A lot of the kids discover their love for science like this and decide to pursuit a degree in math or engineering or something like this.

And then imagine, because reioka and I talked about this already, one day one of the kids Tony teached all about math comes back to him to show him their degree in art or philosophy or something.

They are terribly nervous, because they fear that Tony might be disappointed or something. But Tony is so incredibly proud and he makes a copy of the degree just to keep it forever, and let’s go with the art thing here, because Tony so definitely decides that all art must go into the tower.

He buys it off the kid, and keeps some on his personal floors but he also displays a lot of the pieces on the work floors where everyone can see them.

He most likely hooks the kid up with some connections, not buying them in but just gently pointing the right people into the kid’s direction, and when they have their first exhibition Tony is all over everyone, telling them all that he was the first to hang up their art, and he tutored that kid, did you see how amazing their work is, Tony is sure there has never been anything better.

Tony is proud of all of his kids, no matter what career they choose and he always remembers what any of them are doing career wise. He feels like the proudest dad ever.

Boyfriend Changkyun

A/N: requesteeeeeeed pls request things so i can write them just drop an ask and imma try and write also might end up doing the whole of monsta x at this point lmao also shout out to the staff for letting me bullet point on mobile bc editing the html for this shit on mobile was fuckin awful anyway leggo


  • An actual literal baby
  • Hes the maknae of monsta x so idk what u expect
  • Like at first hes all cool and chic and what not and it impresses the hell out of u bc the rest of his group (for the most part) are just rly fckin stupid
  • And then u get to know him and its like oh no hes weird af too alright cool
  • Also kinda shy? About being affectionate?
  • Like does that thing where he will hold ur hand or put an arm around u or whatever casually
  • And if u point it out will deny it like ’…. idk what ur talking about’ while still holding ur hand
  • Changkyun is just hella lowkey about affection especially in public so dont expect too much
  • He will do it tho if u ask its just that he will be redfaced and embarrassed the whole time bc hes a big baby
  • Except when u guys are at home and hes in one of those playful moods bc then he will smother u with kisses and hugs and dote on u
  • And ur sitting there like ’??????? Where is this coming from????? Who are u and what have u done with changkyun’
  • Also u gotta be okay with the rest of monsta x probably being too involved with ur relationship
  • Hes their baby boy so they have to watch out for him while also constantly bothering him
  • Like jooheons gonna buddy up to u bc changkyun is his hashtag best bro so he wants to make sure ur not fuckin around with him so he would be ur friend to accomplish this but will tell u straight up that hes lookin out for his bro
  • Kihyuns would lowkey about it like he will perform full thorough background checks on u to make sure ur not wanted by the cops or some shit idk
  • Dont take it to heart bc theyre just lookin out for their baby boy (honestly same tbh) but once they figure out that u actually care and love him then ur alright in their books
  • And their involvement somehow gets worse bc now theyre always making fun of u guys
  • Like wonhos life mission to bother changkyun so thats all hes gonna do and ur unfortunately another thing wonho can use against him
  • For the most part ur very :// about it until wonho is like hey u wanna prank ur bf
  • And they its ;P rip changkyun bc pranking him is fun especially if its a sudden prank bc that face he makes when hes surprised/flustered is funny
  • Works out fine bc he annoys the fuck outta u too
  • Honestly a fuckin weirdo tho
  • Like sometimes when u go to the dorms and walk in his room hes just in some stupid ass pose waiting for u
  • Ur standing there like ‘what the fuck’
  • And hes lying there with his toes in the air or some shit like ‘ive been expecting u… lets get food’
  • Just go along with okay hes like that and its funny as hell
  • Likes to talk shit with you in english about the other members while theyre in the same room bc most of the time they dont understand what hes saying and u juat laugh bc once they find out hes gonna get his ass beat
  • Forces you to watch scary movies!!!
  • Bc hes a shitbag and loves terrorising u but also lowkey loves it when u hide against him
  • Honestly just tries to be an asshole and get on ur nerves but it backfires when u turn it against him
  • Like I said before hes rly shy about affection so he was rly shy about gettin down and dirty with u
  • Took you a long time to make him comfortable about having sex with you
  • You had to take things slow and work up to things and kinda baby him a little which is fine bc u dont wanna rush him
  • It was cute too tbh bc he seemed so innocent and shy
  • But after he got comfortable he got weird
  • Not kinky weird just when hes tryna seduce u its weird bc he wouldnt outright tell u hes horny and he wants to fuck
  • Nah hes gonna make weird as faces at u from across the room or text u a whole bunch of emojis that dont make sense and takes u ten minutes to figure out
  • Or say some stupid shit to try and seduce that leaves u more confused than turned on
  • I mean it still works once u figure out what hes asking for just that afterwards ur like why dont u just come out and fuckin say or rub ur boner against me or some shit like a normal person
  • (He tries to rub his boner against u but u were sitting on the couch and he tries to rub against ur arm or smthn it was rly weird but u still sucked him off bc at least he tried right)
  • Its funny bc he will say some dirty shit or be the type to imply dirty shit all the time but as soon as you get serious about it hes shies away like no i was kidding
  • And ur sitting there like ur a fuckin baby always teasing him like that
  • Speaking of, tease the shit outta him when u do suck him off 10/10 would recommend bc he just doesnt know what to do
  • Not the type to boss u around in the bedroom at least not seriously bc hes so clueless and flustered so it doesnt work out well
  • I bet he likes to be told what to do tho and is probably a whiny brat about it too
  • Like u try and tell him to eat u out and hes like do i have to and likes to bicker with u until u have had enough and just sit on his face
  • Loves it when u ride him honestly even better when u tie him up bc he cant do anything but watch and hes all wide eyed watching u bounce on him
  • The worst honestly but hey hes down to experiment
  • You gotta warm him up to the hardcore shit but he would do it for you
  • See thats his thing sometimes he pretends to be all chic and cool to impress you
  • And other times hes really fucking annoying
  • But at the end of the day he just rly loves u okay he does and he doesnt know how to express it properly so this is what he ends up doing
  • Changkyun is always there for u too
  • If u text him he will always text back it might take him a while bc time differences but he’ll text u back and will genuinely listen to what u have to say
  • And if u miss him he will sneak out the dorms to come see u
  • Buys u food if u say ur hungry or buys u things u said u liked once and just gives it to u no questions asked
  • Actions speak louder than words kinda guy really
  • Or more like he talks with his actions more than his words bc sometimes he just doesnt have the right words to articulate how much u mean to him and how much he loves u
  • And he really does love u bc u love and accept him for who he is without question
  • You accept his weird side when hes bein hyper when hes happy or sad or serious or stressed you accept it all offering a haven where he can just be
  • That is why hes always trying to offer the world to u even if u dont want it
  • Changkyun is ride or die honestly
  • SO SUPPORT HIM HONESTLY DONT BE AFRAID OF HIS WEIRD SIDE OKAY HES COOL AND STILL SUPPORT HIM WHEN HES CLOSED OFF AND SERIOUS
  • BC IF U DO THAT HE’LL LOVE U FOREVER BUT DONT BE OVERBEARING JUST LET HIM KNOW U WILL ALWAYS BE THERE AND CHECK UP ON HIM FROM TIME TO TIME OKAY HE WILL SEE AND APPRECIATE IT I PROMISE
  • SUPPORT MONSTA X

Ong Seongwoo College!AU Scenario

-basically it’s really hard for you to open up to new people
-you usually sit in the front of the class so you can take notes better
-but Seongwoo sits on the back with his friends
-you two meet in the student activity unit
-your friend introduces you two
-“Hello, I’m Seongwoo”
-and you think you have seen him a few times in the class “I’m (y/n), uh.. arent you from art major ?”
-“yes, how did you know ?”
-“I think we go to the same class”
-he’d be a little bit surprised
-and your friends starts making fun of him “woah what a rude person you dont even remember her”
-“i’m sorry I only hang with cool kids” just ong being himself already
-you only laughed because you know he was joking, but later on you start thinking “am I really not cool ?”
-and even after that you never really talks to him in the class
-but he does sometimes would come to your seat and peek at your assignment
-“wow more A+”
-you smiled
-“no wonder you have no social life”
-you’d think how dare this guy but you can’t really deny it either so you dont say anything, but your face does.
-and he laughs at your response

-and then one day he’s just openly flirting with you in front of everyone
-he sits in front of you and ask “do you want to watch a movie together ?”
-you gave him puzzled look “with whom ?”
-“of course with me”
-you’re more puzzled now “uh, and the guys ?”
-“no, only me, it’s a date”
-once again he made you speechless
-but you’re very still doubtful “..wouldn’t it better if we watch it together with the others?”
-you try to be as polite as possible because you’re the type to take things very slowly
-he’d asks you to go on a date a few more times
-but you keep insisting the more the merrier
-he finally gives in, “okay then lets ask our friends to watch it too”
-“…well, i dont actually have that much friends”
-“*cough* i’ll ask the guys”

-you enjoy hanging with them eventho you’re very shy
-and you overheard their convo when you went to the toilet
-“so should we leave you two alone now ?” Jisung mischieviously asks
-“oh no, lets not do that”
-the boys would try to persuade him too
-“lets respect her choice for inviting you guys too”
-they will burst in laugh and start making fun of him
-“look at this lover boy, he’s really head over heels for her”
-and from then you starts growing affection on him too

-when he asks you for a date again you finally agrees
-he would be kinda different without his friends
-takes care of you and keeps you on the safe side
-actually his hand has been very itching to hold your hand
-but he knows you take things very slowly
-he’d take you home because its ‘late’
-when it’s actually only 5pm
-you thank him for the date
-and he wish you’d invite him in
-but you wave and get inside
-“be patient Seongwoo, be patient” he wishpered to himself

-after a few dates, you two are just casually talking
-but he spaces out a lot of times
-“..and the lecturer told me… uh, Seongwoo is something wrong?”
-he has been staring at your lips the whole time
-his face slowly gets closer as he caresses your cheek
-you closed your eyes because you don’t know what to do
-he kissed your cheek
-you’d slowly open your eyes “..Thankyou”
-“did you thank me because I kissed you, or because i didn’t kiss your lips ?”
-“i guess both?”
-“you’re lucky I’m very patient” he sighs
