and maybe stop making bad things

The English Dub

For centuries people around the world have been dealing with and enjoying the bad dubs that have been given.

Did y'all complain when you were kids and watching dubs of Naruto? Are you complaining now at Voltron’s low quality voice acting? No? Then maybe stop being so uppity and chill it with the whole “Miraculous Ladybug English dub? I’d rather die” thing.

They do a perfectly passable job for a kids show that just takes the voices in a different direction. Just because you don’t like the voice doesn’t make it bad.

this ask meme is based on the blog gravesuggestion.  i’ve divided it up into two categories  ( light  &  dark )  based on the themes.  some of these can be somewhat triggering seeing that the darker ones deal with a lot of death mentions.  please be cautious before continuing on!!

‘  your existence takes up so much more space in mine that we might as well be one entity.  ’
‘  your fingers are so cold  &  bruised,  but you’re still slamming your fists again the barricade as if it makes a difference.  ’
‘  your hair is tied in a noose  &  your fingernails are razor blades,  your lips are poison  &  i will gratefully kiss them.  ’
‘  your hatred has a body count  &  we will not forget.  ’
‘  your loss,  not mine.  ’
‘  you’re a sick fuck.  you know that?  ’
‘  you’re not gentle with me  &  i would never ask you to be.  ’
‘  you’ve trapped yourself so thoroughly in your own mind that it’s not even a rut anymore,  it’s a pit.   ’


i’m living for the small things. the way that fall smells. finding leaves that shift color beautifully. tiny pumpkins. i’m living for the way sweet tea tastes and the reactions people have when they see how much sugar i put in it. i’m learning to love myself not for my freckles or thick thighs but because i once helped save baby ducklings. because i stopped to ask if i could help the girl who was crying. i’m living with less expectations that me or my life can be a movie. somehow that makes everything romantic. i expect less from the good things, worry less about the bad. i know maybe i’ll never feel happiness the way those do without mental illness. but i’m feeling good. or better, at least, relatively. and isn’t happiness all about relativity?

Consider this: instead of telling me I’m not chubby when I obviously am, maybe acknowledge it in a positive way? When I causally mention my chubbiness, the last thing I need is “you aren’t chubby! Stop saying that about yourself!” Because that means you very obviously see chubby as a bad thing and that isn’t how you make chubby people feel better for themselves

Our goals aren’t to get skinny. Our goals are to accept who we already are.

What If Rowan Dies

I don’t want to think about it, but let’s.

What if when Aelin tries to forge the Lock, her magic drains, but then her magic tries to find more.

And it finds Rowan.

And Rowan doesn’t try to stop Aelin.

Because he loves her, and Terrasen needs her.

Because she needs to live.

Because he’s been alive for so long, and done so many bad things, maybe this will be repentance.

So he has no qualms about dying.

And it doesn’t hurt when the burn out comes, all he sees when he dies is Aelin’s fire. Her beautiful fire.

Aelin feels the second when Rowan dies, and it’s enough to make her flood Erawan with enough magic to kill him. Something that she shouldnt have been able to do.

But then she’s sobbing over Rowan, screaming, bellowing at the sky, because she needs her mate. Her mate.

And then people are around her. Maybe they’re her court, maybe they’re the Valg, she doesn’t care.

Rowan was dead, and there wasn’t anything she could do.

She lays her head on his chest and wishes for death.

Then Aedion sees her, and a part of him does at how hard she’s sobbing.

And he tries to touch her, but then she’s screaming, “It was supposed to be ME!”

So Aedion watches his queen clutch his dead king, and breaks.

And Aelin doesn’t have any tears left when they pull her away, and all she can do is breathe.

Because Rowan would want her to live.

And fuck, I have to practice anatomy so, so, sosososososo bad!!! I will take a book and study it >.<. ~

“Steve in CA:CW only thinks about Bucky!” / “Steve broke up the Avengers for Bucky!” 

I can’t count the number of times I have seen these phrases or variants thereof uttered in fandom, and it’s starting to make me a little bit bananas. So I’m gonna break down the issues with this line of thinking. 

First off, it isn’t true at all. Yes, Steve has a strong emotional response to issues involving Bucky, and yes, Bucky is a key piece on the chessboard in CA:CW. Decisions are made regarding him that impact the eventual split of the Avengers. But ultimately, Steve’s choices in the movie are rational and based on Steve’s ethics, Steve’s unwillingness to allow pointless death, and Steve’s mistrust of institutions after having been burned twice. All else being equal, and Bucky not being a factor, it is hard to imagine Steve making wholly different choices.

Steve goes after Bucky when he’s accused of bombing the UN, but does so to bring him in, and because there is a kill order on Bucky. Bucky is a goddamn living weapon, and will not go quietly into that good night; Steve has no way of knowing at that point if Bucky will use lethal force or not against those trying to apprehend him, and so goes after him because Steve has a better chance than anyone else of bringing him in without loss of life. Steve going after Bucky alone is a course of action he feels compelled to take not only to save Bucky’s life, but the lives of everyone else involved, at risk to his own. Steve is very explicit about this in his conversation with Natasha ( “If he’s this far gone, then… I should be the one to bring him in.” “Why?” “Because I’m the one least likely to die trying”). At this point, no other Avengers are involved; this is Steve’s choice and Steve’s action, and not a determining factor on the fate of the team. 

While Bucky’s lack of due process is pretty clearly upsetting to Steve, he is still willing to consider the Accords even after that whole incident, and even with his skepticism about the Accords’ definition of accountability. He doesn’t wholly back out until he finds out Wanda is being kept under house arrest without her knowledge and without any justification beyond her perceived ‘dangerousness’ (keep in mind, the incident in Lagos is because Crossbones set off a bomb; more people would have died without Wanda’s intervention. The hate toward her in-universe is a result of media spin and fear of powered people, because her powers weren’t enough to save everyone. It’s worth wondering: had it been one of Tony’s automated suits that didn’t get the bomb clear in time, would we be seeing the same furor?). This is understandably upsetting to a guy who lived through a period of seeing people interned and worse based on public fear of certain minorities, and has seen how it can escalate into absolute horror; while Wanda’s imprisonment is cushy, as Tony points out, it sets a profoundly disturbing precedent. 

When Steve and Team Cap face off against Team Iron Man at the airport, it’s because they need to get to Siberia – not because Steve just wants to run off with Bucky. Steve attempts to explain the situation (“…And there are 5 more super soldiers just like him. I can’t let the doctor find them first, Tony. I can't”), and Tony makes it clear he has no intention of listening at that point (“All right, I’ve run out of patience. Underoos!”).  Steve is left with no choice but to fight his way out to stop what Zemo’s trail has led them to believe is an incredibly serious and imminent threat to global safety, which Tony is unwilling to listen to, and which Ross is later unwilling to take seriously.  

The film’s initial marketing (and hyper-focus on the eyeroll-worthy “he’s my friend”/”so was I” exchange) plus the lens of Stucky shipping have actually done us a disservice, I think, by characterizing Steve as someone who makes all his choices around Bucky. But even with Bucky not being a factor, I honestly don’t think we’d see Steve make different choices when forced into this same situation and provided with the same intel. With the threat of brainwashed super soldiers being unleashed and no time to wait for the UN to get its ass in gear – and that only happening IF Ross could be convinced to listen – he would probably still head to Siberia to try to stop it himself should no one else listen and be willing to act. If Wanda was being imprisoned and a precedent set for interning enhanced people who didn’t sign the Accords, I think he’d still be opposed to signing. Even before Bucky is ever a factor, Steve has legitimate concerns about the Accords – Accountable to whom? What’s the process? What happens to people who don’t sign? What guarantee do they have that the Avengers won’t be used for national agendas?

Maybe Tony would have been more willing to listen to Steve if Bucky weren’t involved. But Steve is actually responding pretty rationally throughout, and being honest with himself about what he thinks he can and can’t promise in good faith.

Tony, on the other hand, is painted by many fans as someone who is making choices from a rational, reasonable place, but if we look at what is said and done canonically… the opposite appears to be true?

While unquestionably an intellectually brilliant man, Tony is pretty consistently characterized as someone who reacts from a place of emotion and impulse rather than from a place of detached intellectual analysis. It’s part of what makes him an interesting character, and makes him diverge from the ‘aloof genius’ archetype we see with Reed Richards and a number of other super-geniuses of the Marvel universe. He makes a lot of choices – good and bad – based on strong feelings and gut reactions rather than thinking things through. Sometimes this means throwing caution to the winds and setting a whole new ethical course for his company. And sometimes this means accidentally inventing a murderbot. 

Tony straight up tells Steve that he wants to sign the Accords to get Pepper back while still doing his Iron Man shtick ( “I never stopped. Cause the truth is I don’t wanna stop. I don’t want to lose her. I thought maybe the Accords can split the difference.”) And he only gets involved with the Accords after being made to feel guilty when ambushed by Miriam. Tony’s support of the Accords stems from his personal guilt, and personal motivations to get Pepper back more than any consideration of longterm, far-reaching effects. We can see the lack of thought he’s put into this when Tony himself later goes completely rogue and ignores Ross (to whom he’s supposed to answer under the Accords), defying the very policies he’s been pushing because they become inconvenient in a way he didn’t anticipate. We also see it when he admits he didn’t know the rogue Avengers would be thrown into the RAFT, implying he didn’t investigate the ramifications of the Accords fully. The timeframe of the Accords is rushed, with the Avengers given an ultimatum on an absurd deadline, and Tony’s eagerness to soothe his guilt and repair his relationship drives him to help force them into that scenario – where a schism is more or less an inevitability. 

And contrary to the narrative that the marketing team seemed to push and that a lot of fans on both sides cling to, it isn’t Steve’s reaction in this conflict that comes from a place of emotional impulsivity due to Bucky. 

In fact, the most visceral, emotional, irrational decision made in regards to Bucky in the course of the movie? Is made by Tony

Now, I can’t honestly blame him for wanting to kill Bucky after seeing the footage of Howard and Maria’s deaths – I would straight up murder anyone who laid a finger on my mom, no matter the situation, so I have a LOT of sympathy. But while it’s understandable, it is not excusable. Bucky did not have any agency as the Winter Soldier. He was a brainwashed torture victim with no free will; the culpability for Howard and Maria’s deaths lies on the HYDRA handler who sent the Winter Soldier after them. And Tony knows this. But he responds from a place of pain and emotion and tries to kill Bucky anyway – because he’s hurting and wants to make someone else hurt too, and also, according to the Russoes’ commentary, to hurt Steve. 

And it’s that final violence, with Bucky and Steve forced to fight Tony for Bucky’s life, that drives the ultimate wedge in the Avengers. Tony had seen the flaws in the Accords and been willing to defy Ross; Steve finally had the opportunity to explain the threats he was dealing with and have Tony listen; they were ready to confront Zemo together. Up to that point, reconciliation and reunification of the Avengers had been a very tangible, present possibility. But once again, Tony backs Steve into a corner with an ultimatum: before, it was his ethics or his legal standing. Now, it’s Tony’s friendship, or Bucky’s life. And because Steve is obviously not willing to let Tony straight-up murder Bucky to satisfy his vengeance, that reconciliation is taken off the table.

So yes, the Avengers are ultimately still broken up at the end of CA:CW because of an irrational decision made about Bucky.

But it’s not made by Steve. 

The Stereotype

 Requested by anon: Drabble #7 with eric from divergent plsss 

 Pairing: Eric Coulter X Reader

 Word count: 955

 Drabble: Everyone keeps telling me you’re the bad guy.


 Things are different now. That was the first thing they told you when you jumped off the net. A brand new initiation with new possibilities. Thanks to those “possibilities” you’re standing here, in the leader’s office, waiting for Max.

 You’re a very good fighter. The best among the transfers, and better than half of the Dauntless-born. Someone saw something good on you. You hope this person is right.

 “Among all those kids, Four had to choose a little girl.”

 You look at the door behind you to see him. Eric. It makes sense. He’s your instructor and a leader. Max wouldn’t lose his time with the initiates.

 “It’s you, then.” The smile that comes to his lips seems honest and that surprises you. “I’ve seen you fight. You’re good. (Y/N), am I right?”

 “Yes.”

 “Very good. That’s how it’ll work.” He sits down in his huge chair, making eye contact all the time. You can’t help but feel uncomfortable. “You’ll train with the other initiates until lunch. Then with me until dinner. That means…”

 “I’ll have to train even harder.” You cut him off, shyly avoiding his gaze. Those blue eyes can make you melt, somehow you know that. “Four already told me that.”

 “Great. Meet me here tomorrow after lunch. Don’t be late.” 


 “Maybe this opportunity isn’t a good thing for you.” Clary, your friend who came with you from Erudite is trying to change your mind. For two hours now. “Do you know Keenan? The Dauntless-born with green hair? He told me Eric punched his brother right in the face just because the man didn’t move out his way.”

 “I’ll just move then.” A laugh escapes your lips. “The thing is: I never thought about leadership. Now that I actually have a chance, I’ll fight for it.”

 “Eric is the bad guy, (Y/N). You need to understand that.” Clary makes you stop, right by the dormitory’s door. “He hanged five initiates over the chasm for something like disobeying his orders.”

 “Clar, I’ll be fine. Let’s get some sleep because tomorrow will be a long day.”

 Ignoring her response, you run the bathroom to take a shower before going to sleep.


 “(Y/N), can I talk to you?” Four calls you when you successfully hit your target. You gladly run to meet him, standing away from everyone.

 “What’s up?”

 “Eric.” It’s cute to see that he cares. Four has been a great friend since you came here. “You don’t like following rules, but you have to do what he says.” He takes a look around, probably just checking if the initiates aren’t trying to kill each other. “He’s dangerous. I thought he wouldn’t agree training you so I’d do myself. But for some reason, he wants to keep his eyes on you.”

 “Four, I’m thankful for your friendship and for your help. Clary wants me to give up because you know… It’s Eric. But I can handle it. I can handle him.” You give him a smile, kindly touching his arm. “I promise that I’ll tell you if anything happens.”

 “I’ll be here for you, but I won’t be physically there to help you. You have to keep in mind that Eric is the bad…”

 “(Y/N)!” You turn around quickly to face Eric, staring at you from the other side of the training room. “You’re fighting now.”

 “See you around, Four.”


 You take your time during lunch, enjoying the small talk with the other initiates. Clary keeps giving you tips on “how to deal with Eric Dauntless Leader Coulter”. When Four calls, you say goodbye to your friends, running to the leader’s office.

 Guess what you see when you get there? The worst person of this cruel faction drinking coffee peacefully. You clean your throat after opening the door quietly, not wanting to bother him or something.

 “You’re late.”

 “No, I’m not. Four can prove it.” It comes out before you can think, and the image of your body hanging over the chasm fills your mind.

 “Four. You like him.” It isn’t a question, but you don’t know why Eric is saying this. What Four has to do with this situation?

 “Of course I do. We’re kinda friends.” You sit before him, playing with a black pen, pretending to draw on his desk. “He helps me. He actually helps everyone who needs him.”

 “What about me?”

 It does make you freeze. Eric’s icy eyes are locked on yours. You search on your memories for a reason. Since the first day, you’ve been trying your best and being successful. You know Eric pays a lot of attention to you, but that’s just because you’re good at what you do.

 But that’s weird. What the hell he wants you to say?

 “About you what?” You struggle, trying not to stutter.

 “Four is your friend. What am I?”

 “My leader. My instructor.” You take a deep breath, letting the pen fall from your fingers. “And everyone keeps telling me you’re the bad guy.

 “Do you believe them?” Eric stands up, moving to sit on the chair beside you.

 “I don’t know yet.”

 “If you don’t give up I can show you that I’m more than a stereotype.”

 “Why?” You can’t help but smile. Eric’s very handsome and it makes you blush. Trying to keep your heartbeat steady, you avoid his gaze.

 “Because I kinda like you.” He imitates your tone when you were speaking about Four.

 “Well, I can’t promise you anything.”

 “Good thing I have time.” After giving you a smile that almost makes your heart melt, he goes back to his seat, grabbing a pile of papers. “Today we have paperwork.”

 You’d complain, but somehow you want to spend all the time you can with him.

A/N: So I collabed with @daveeddiggsit for this one and it ended up way cuter than we expected?? lol hope you enjoy!! (also there are several criminal minds references bc i’m like that)


You pushed your glasses back up the bridge of your nose as you continued typing away at your final thesis paper of the semester. Hair up in a bun, and some ratty university sweatpants on, you were looking a little worse for wear. But that was normal during finals week, right?

The library you had been holed up in for the past five hours was dead silent, allowing you to completely focus on your paper. Your eyes were glued to your laptop screen when you heard the sound of a chair scraping backwards but you were too in the zone to look up. As long as they didn’t disrupt your concentration, you’d be good.

“You ever think that the reason you’re wearing glasses is because you’ve been staring at that screen pretty closely for about two hours straight?” You heard a curious, deep voice interrupt your thoughts.

“You ever think about how the library is a quiet place for people to work,” you retorted without looking away from your screen.

“If you really want a quiet place to work, we could head back to my place and work on some other things too, if you know what I mean.” You could practically hear the smirk grow on his face.

“That sounds like one of the first lines in a Criminal Minds episode. Hard pass.”

“You like Criminal Minds? How about you let me profile you.

You finally glanced over and you could see that there definitely was a smirk on the very attractive man’s face. His hair was wildly curly, yet somehow tamable to an extent, facial hair adorned his defined jawline, and his amused brown eyes stared into your slightly-narrowed ones.

If you weren’t supposed to email this paper to your professor in six hours, you probably would’ve taken him up on his advances, but what was more attractive than Smirky Guy was an A on your paper. Which you then turned back to.

“Are you seriously just going to keep ignoring me?” He asked.

“Yup.”

“I’m just going to keep flirting with you until you talk to me.”

“You call saying random pick up lines to a girl whose name you don’t know and receiving little to no response flirting?”

“Yup.” He said, mocking you.

You rolled your eyes and continued to type your paper.

“Aww, come on, four eyes, take a break and talk to me. It won’t hurt anyone.”

You completely turned to him. “‘Four eyes,’ really?” You raised an eyebrow at him. “What are you, five?”

“Hey, ‘four eyes’ isn’t a bad thing. You look cute in glasses.” He grinned at you and even added a wink this time.

okay but taako and lup only achieving a sense of identity after joining the IPRE

taako and lup are identical, even going so far as having the same haircut and let people tell them apart by colour coordinating themselves, taako wears one colour, lup wears another - except they’re constantly swapping and pretending to be each other. if taako doesn’t want to go to class, lup will put on his outfit. If lup doesn’t want to talk to someone she’ll tell them she’s taako and that she’ll “tell lup they were looking for her.”

no one ever truly gets to know them, never gets close, because they don’t let them - they seem distant to people they’ve sometimes had lengthy conversations with because that was with the other twin. its fun and isolating and assures they’ll never get hurt because the only person they’ve let get close is their brother/sister, the only person they’ll ever trust to watch their back.

It changes with magnus who always makes an attempt to guess who is who, something not many people - not even their aunt - did very often. After a while he’s right every time and they start lying about which one they are in an attempt to stop magnus from getting too close - it fails because he finds them both equally as interesting as the other and isn’t deterred when he learns he’s talking to the “other twin”. It isn’t until taako is leaving class one day in a bad mood and magnus catches up with him that he realises maybe things are changing. Magnus tries to start a conversation with taako, who lies and says he’s lup before trying to leave, then magnus laughs and says ‘sure taako, whatever you say’, he’s the first person to ever be able to tell them apart.

then barry, then lucretia, then merle, then davenport.

It gets to the point where it starts stressing them out, how could they tell them apart?? no one had ever been able to do that, not even their family. They sit down with the team and ask, confused and more than a little vulnerable. The team smile and say that even though they’re inseparable they’re still two different people, they all like them both for different reasons and maybe they should try exploring those different reasons. Merle laughs and says ‘your voices are different, idiots.’

They start to make changes though, the first time they all see each other again after that meeting their clothes are totally different from each other, taako has his hair tied back and is wearing a large hat, lup has braids and lots of jewellery. No one points it out, they just smile and greet them. After that they grow more independent of each other, occasionally switching places (they went as each other for halloween once) but thanks to their new family they realised that maybe letting others get close, letting them know the real lup and taako, might not be too bad.

BTS reaction learning their s/o is a virgin

Request: Hey can you do a reaction to bts learning their s/o is a virgin? Lol

Genre : Fluff (ya nasties), okay maybe a little steam

A/N: Of course, hope you enjoy! Sorry it took so long. 

Jin

You sat on the kitchen floor mixing ingredients in a bowl as Jin was chopping random vegetables on the counter. Jin was making you dinner for the night but you insisted on helping and he couldn’t say no.

“Chop this up for me Jagi and give me the bowl please.” Jin handed you a couple cucumbers and you passed the bowl of mixed foods. You grabbed a nearby cutting board and knife going back to your position. You couldn’t help but laugh at the vegetable as you chopped it into smaller pieces. 

“What are you laughing at?” Jin asked curiously.

“The cucumber just reminds me of a-”

“Don’t finish that inappropriate sentence Jagi, someone as pure as you shouldn’t say things like that.” Jin scolded. You looked at him bewildered.

“What do you mean by that? ‘As pure as me.’“ You recited.

“Well if you haven’t had and intimate relationships with anyone then there’s no reason to say that- why are you laughing again?’ Jin sighed becoming frustrated

“I was saying the cucumber reminded me of a jumbo pencil I used to have,” You laughed falling on the floor to your side. “And how did you know I was a virgin?” You asked wiping the tears out f the corners of your eyes from laughing so hard.

“You are pure.” Jin smiled laughing at himself and turning back to his cooking.

You and Suga sat on your couch watching romance movies. You begged him to watch them with you despite his many protests. He caved in when you pouted and sat on the couch acting sad. You both were cuddled against each other your legs intertwined and your arms wrapped around each other.

A sex scene had come on and you shifted uncomfortably. You and Suga hadn’t ever talked about the more intimate parts of your relationship in order not to make you uncomfortable and the scene didn’t help with that. It especially didn’t help that you were a virgin.

“Everything alright Y/n?” He asked rubbing your arm softly.

“I’m fine.” You whispered staring down at your fingers silently trying to distract yourself.

“Don’t hide things from me Y/n, tell me what’s wrong.” He said in a soft but firm tone warning you that it was best to say what you were feeling. Your cheeks reddened in embarrassment.

“I’m a virgin I just thought it was a little embarrassing.” You say looking up at a smirking Min Yoongi.

“Why should you feel embarrassed? I’m glad you told me.”

You had invited some friends over for a hangout including your boyfriend Hoseok. Your closest friends wanted to meet him and this was the best way to do that. You all sat in your living room on the sofa with Hoseok sitting beside you. You all laughed at a joke your friend made. 

“That’s what she said.” Your friend said making everyone laugh harder including you.

“Y/n your innocent mind shouldn’t be laughing at that!” Another friend scolded. You merely rolled your eyes in response but you felt your cheeks heat up. Hoseok pulled you closer to him by your waist as your friends all got up and left to the kitchen to get snacks.

“Ah Hobi I’m sorry I just wasn’t ready to tell you-”

“Jagi don’t worry about it,” He laughed bringing in your body for a hug. “If I get to be your first then that’s all I care about.”

You and Namjoon  had just gotten back to your apartment after a dinner date. Things seemed to escalate quickly once you shut the door. His hands were roaming your body, gently squeezing your curves as he pushed your body up against the closest wall. What started off as gentle kisses were now harsh when his lips moved down to your neck sucking at the delicate skin.

“N-namjoon.” You breathed out squeezing his shoulder gently.

“What is it Jagi?” He groaned. He looked at you in the eyes, What used to be dark were now soft soothing eyes you looked into. You gave him a soft smile bringing your hand up to his cheek rubbing your thumb against is cheekbone.
“I’ve never done this before but I want you to be my first.” He broke out into a wide grin leaving a soft peck against your cheek.

“Anything for you.”

It was like your world stopped and decided to crash right in front of your eyes.

Maybe that was a bit exaggerated but it certainly was close to that. You stood frozen in the doorway of your kitchen watching Jimin flip through pages of your diary. You scolded yourself for even having one knowing that this was a possibility of happening.

“Jiminie what are you doing?’ You asked your throat dry and hands sweaty from anxiety.

“Oh Jagiya! I’m just skimming through this little journal I found it’s quite interesting.” Jimin giggled flipping through another page bringing his hand up to his chin nodding.

“Oh don’t read it, it’s embarrassing!” You whined running towards your boyfriend trying to take the book out of his hands. His slightly taller frame had an advantage when he raised the book over his head but still allowing him to read it.

“Y/n you’re a virgin?” He asked looking at you with a surprised expression now bringing the book down. You groaned and decided this wasn’t worth it. You turned around embarrassed about to walk away before you were being hugged from behind and you felt a very familiar face rest on your shoulder.

“Y/n please don’t be mad at me, just know you won’t stay pure with me.”

It was a very normal day. You had suggested you and your boyfriend Taehyung had a drawing contest and that’s exactly what you two were doing. He seemed very concentrated on his art constantly looking at his paper and his lap. You knew he was copying another drawing but you let him be just wanting to spend time together. What left your mouth next wasn’t expected by you and especially not by Tae.

“You know i’m a virgin?” You said, your bluntness surprising the both of you. Taeyhung soon broke out into a boxed smile giggling at you. He leaned over and pecked your cheek.

“Such a cutie.”

You and Jungkook stopped by at the pharmacy to get snacks and look around for random things giggling at small toys and suggesting a couple make up competition. All was sweet and dandy before you both had strolled down a random aisle that contained everything for family planning. Your cheeks reddened and Jungkook felt just as embarrassed. 

It wasn’t that you and Jungkook were embarrassed at the mention of sex but you both hadn’t talked about it yet. Maybe now wasn’t the best of times but you at least wanted to throw the bad eggs out while you could.

“I know we haven’t talked about it and maybe here isn’t the best place but I’m a virgin.’ You whispered. 

Jungkook merely laughed bring your body into his wrapping his hands around your shoulders and you two continued to walk around the store.

“Me too.” He whispered.

Warning! Major spoilers shown and discussed in this post!

Something I found very interesting about the new pan-upward images of Marinette and her classmates in Season 2′s opening is the sticker details.

The bottom image includes two cute but notable stickers on the image with Marinette, Alya, Adrien, and Nino. On the left side is a sea turtle sticker, and on the right side is a fox sticker. Considering what we know for this season, I think those are cute details that foreshadow Nino and Alya’s futures.

However, what I really want to look at is the image with Marinette, Alya, and other girls in the class. All of them have animal-themed stickers, but most of them are hugely notable based on other huge spoilers that leaked out. Marinette has panda ears and panda nose stickers, which reflect her Chinese heritage, and Alya appears to have fox ear stickers, referencing her future promotion to Rena Rouge. Meanwhile, Rose has a pig ears and a pig snout (I failed at catching a screenshot of the snout, but you can see it there if you pause it at the right post), Mylène has mouse ears, and Alix has has rabbit ears and a rabbit mouth. Juleka is harder to tell, but she has an orange tail with a brown stripe, orange ears with stripes, a sharp tooth, and the text “GRRR” over her, so I think her stickers are based on a tiger.

The reason why I find the four girls’ animal stickers interesting is that they are animals of the Chinese zodiac. From the TFOU video in late August, we also learned that there are kwamis based off the Chinse zodiac animals, the rabbit being the only animal not represented with the other animals’ kwamis but probably existing if the other eleven do. Here is a comparison I did:

Even without the stickers there are some similarities that can be argued. Rose is pink like the pig kwami. Even the wing design on her back makes me think of the phrase “when pigs fly” in relation the kwami. Rose doesn’t really have tiger-based colors, but at least in concept art, neither does the tiger kwami. Both have darker purplish colors, and both have orange eyes. The rat kwami’s pink eyes remind me of Mylène’s design’s use of pink, like her bandana and some of her locks. Alix is a different one for sure, as we don’t have any images of a rabbit kwami yet. However, considering how rabbits are symbols of speed, I could see how this matches up with Alix.

Of course, if Carapace proved anything, it’s that there isn’t always that huge a connection between designs, but as it has been the case for a few others, it might be possible for some similarities to exist with other pairs of humans and kwamis.

I think this could mean a few things. First of all, it could just be a fun reference. We weren’t supposed to know about the Chinese zodiac kwamis yet (I’m sorry, Thomas and crew), so for those who caught, it’s a sweet hint of things to come.

The second meaning is the one I’m not eager for, but it could be possible as far as I know right now. These pair-ups indicate that in the future, these characters will be matched up with these Miraculouses for an unknown reason. It could mean that other people related to them somehow have these Miraculouses, but from what little we know right now, it seems to mean more by speculation that these characters will get the Miraculouses, like Rose getting the Pig Miraculous and Mylène getting the Rat Miraculous.

By extension of this, this could mean at the most the entire class will get Miraculouses. Subtracting the main five from the class group from the majority of Season 1, we have nine students. However, if they are in the same class, Lila, Kagami, and Luka would push that number up the twelve, or there could be other students meant in those slots. A lot of them could arguably line up with them. For example, considering Ivan’s supportive yet tough nature, his crush on Mylène, and how the Chinese story connects the rat and the ox, he could get the Ox Miraculous. Honestly, once Kagami and Luka are revealed, it would be fun to try to connect them and the CZ Miraculouses based on what info we have.

Do I want this to happen? Well, if the show pulls it off with excellent writing, absolutely, but as it stands, not really. One huge event where all the students are required to help as Miraculous holders would be awesome, but then they’re just back to normal, which is kind of disappointing. Two superheroes appear to be more than enough for Paris, and if the three upcoming superheroes for Season 2 are only part-timers, it seems especially insane to add a lot more part-time superheroes on top of that. And, of course, there’s the common joke of the entire class suddenly excusing themselves to go fight a villain – it’s totally not suspicious at all. If we get more Miraculous holder superheroes, I would want them to be from around the world and only guest-appearing, maybe all of them coming together to help the Parisian heroes stop the bad guys in the Season 3 finale. While I love all of the students, no matter how good or bad they lie on the moral spectrum, all or most of them being superheroes sounds like overkill.

Once again, though, I’m not entirely against the idea. In-show, it just needs a lot of talent by the crew to make this kind of thing feel right for the series. Honestly, though, as an AU of sorts outside the show, I’m all for it. I’m already wishing I could draw up art of these girls in superhero forms based on these stickers in the Season 2 opening, along with assigning other CZ Miraculouses to others (I need Rat!Mylène and Ox!Ivan being cute and fantastic superheroes together). The students are fun characters, so giving any of them Miraculouses and seeing what they would do with them is great, whether they use them wisely, irresponsibly, for good, or for evil.

In conclusion, who knows what any of this means, but no matter what it turns out as, I appreciate the fun Easter egg details of the Chinese zodiac animal stickers in the opening. Nothing or anything can come from it, but for the time being, I just think it’s cool to have those details in there, and I’m very curious to see how the Chinese zodiac-themed Miraculouses come into play, with a lot or very little importance, in the series’ future.

Your eyes laid heavily on the white wall behind the sleeping body next to you. As they scanned their way down you stopped, catching a glimpse of his sleeping face. The face you could practically stare at for hours, analyzing every crease and little mark. His eyes peacefully laid shut, puckered thick lips closed shut, and his messy blond hair, were all things that came together in what seemed like a masterpiece. A masterpiece wrapped up in the most beautiful white sheets and the sun just barely shining through the windows onto his bare upper body.

A small crack of a smile was placed on your lips as you reached a hand out to stroke his face with the back of it. 

“I had to fall in love with you, didn’t I?” You whispered to yourself, moving up to his hair.

Your hand collapsed onto the bed as you continued to look over at him. He was close enough that you could feel his body heat, but at the same time you felt as though he couldn’t have been further. You let out a sigh, sitting up in the bed, searching for your clothes that had to be somewhere on the ground. You threw the blanket off of you, standing up as you spotted them. 

The movement from you waking up must have woken Jimin up as you heard a low groan midway through sliding your dress back on.

“Morning, babe.” Jimin let out, stretching his arms over his head as he still lazily laid in his bed. 

You turned your head only slightly over your shoulder, smiling over at him. 

“Morning.”

Jimin tried his best to sit up, resting his face on his palm as he used the other hand to rub his eye. 

“You’re leaving already?” He questioned, seeing you fully dressed, clutching the same pair of shoes from the night before.

“Well, it’s not like you won’t ever see me again. Just call me whenever you miss me~ I’m only a few minutes away.” 

Jimin sat back, smirking. “What if i’m missing you already?”

The obvious lie struck you so hard you had to stop yourself from clutching your chest. With a fake smile you walked over to him, feeling his soft hand grabbing at your wrist. His thumb gently caressed over it as he stared at you lovingly.

“Jiminie, I promised Yoongi I’d hand out with him for lunch. I was going to head over to the studio and we woke up late. It’s already 11:00.”

“Do you like him more than me?” He pouted, giving you his best puppy dog eyes.

The string of jealously in his tone stuck out to you, you knew he was the jealous type but he never acted that way towards you. You wondered if he had been hiding it this whole time, falling for his trap once more. 

“You know I don’t like anyone else more than you.” You assured him, dropping the shoes that were in your hands. 

He bit his lip,holding back his smile as you propped your body above him, allowing his hands to find their way comfortably on your sides. 

“That’s good to know.” He whispered before pulling you into a kiss. 

——————————————–

Yoongi sat at his desk, scrolling through the same bullshit on his Twitter feed for the past hour. It wasn’t until he heard you call out his name that his head snapped up, finally relieved from what felt like his eternal wait. 

“Y/N. You’re late.”

You pulled the bags of food from behind your back, smiling at him brightly.

“Yeah but I got your favorite~” You sang, setting the plastic bag of food down on the coffee table. 

Yoongi lazily sat up, taking his feet off of his desk as he turned in your direction. 

“Where were you this morning? I texted you a few times because I thought you blew me off.”

The question had you rethinking about the events of this morning, still being able to smell the scent from Jimin’s room as you wore a shirt you may or may not have taken with you. It had your lips already perking up into a smile, biting your lower one. 

“I was busy trying to pick out what to bring you and then traffic was really bad-.”

“Bullshit.” He sighed, opening the containers of food.

It took seconds before he stopped mid- setting the lid down for him to look up at you again. The glare in his eyes was enough to make your shoulders flinch but you looked away, pouting. 

“Y/N. Seriously? You said you’d stop.” 

“Maybe I changed my mind.” You defended, still avoiding his gaze.

“This is toxic and you know it. I’m not trying to control you, I’m trying to help you. This is only going to make things worse, I already told you how he really feels. You’re just something to keep Jimin busy.” Yoongi warned, finally placing the lid down on the clear coffee table.

“You’re wrong. I confessed to him like a year ago and he wouldn’t be saying the things he does now if he didn’t actually mean them. He sounded jealous when I told him I was hanging out with you. Then, he told me he would miss me when I left.”

“Because who else would he fuck? Look, he’s not a bad guy but he thinks you both have this weird mutual friends with benefits sort of thing. You actually falling in love isn’t part of it. Plus he knows I’ve been telling you to stop messing around with him.” He groaned.

You sat there quietly, watching as Yoongi snapped apart his wooden chopsticks from the wrapper. He was already digging into the food, probably starving from waiting so long for you to show up. You knew he was right but it felt wrong to even admit it in your mind. You didn’t want to give up.

“Y/N. We both know he says a lot of things to make you happy but he’s still seeing other people isn’t he? He’s not in love with you.”

“Yet.” You mumbled under your breath.

“He just doesn’t want to settle down and I respect that. I’m fine with things the way they are now, anyway. I just want him to know that i’m there for him even if it’s like this. He’s really stressed lately.”

Yoongi rolled his eyes. “Yeah, well who isn’t? Respect yourself and stop giving him whatever he wants like a child. I don’t care if he’s out there hurting other people but I don’t want him hurting you. You’re important to us even if he doesn’t care.”

It was hard for you to even picture cutting it off with him, he was there for you when things got hard, just as you were for him. You were friends with all of them so long you could barely recall the first day you had met, knowing that it was in fact because of Yoongi. Jimin just had this feeling that engulfed you every time you met eyes or heard him speaking your name out loud. You refused to think that he would even think of throwing your friendship away because he thought you were easy and part of you was right. He didn’t think you were easy but sometimes he would end up using you on days that felt the hardest. But who didn’t do that? 

“I care about you too. It’s just hard…Yoongi. I seriously, think i’m in love with him. I’ve never wanted to be around someone so much. I never wanted to do things like I would with him. I miss him when he’s not around me and I jump at any chance to go over and see him. I know it must look pathetic but I just- I’m afraid if I let him go, it really will be over.”

Watching you start to tear up made your best friend grudgingly put down his plate, coming over to sit next to you. Yoongi slung his arm over your shoulder, letting you rest your head on him. 

“I know. I’m sorry I can be harsh sometimes. I just don’t want you to get hurt, you know? You deserve someone you can actually give you what you want. It’s his loss and he’ll realize it sooner or later.”

While Yoongi attempted to comfort you, you felt your phone vibrating in your lap. As you leaned your head down to see the same, you realized what perfect timing he always had. Jimin’s name could be read on the screen as well as his text. 

 Jiminie ♥ : 

               “I know you said you were headed to see Yoongi but I’m also at                             the company if you wanna come see me”

Listening to Yoongi, for once, you placed your phone face down on your lap instead of answering right away. You sat up, having Yoongi’s arm slide off of you, wiping the tears off of your cheeks.

“You’re right. I’ll make him see how much he wants me even if he doesn’t right now.”

i’m in love with the shape of you.

It had been easy, for the first two or three weeks, to take things slow like they had agreed to when they started dating. Lena was chivalrous, gentle, sweet. All Kara could’ve wanted for in a partner. Most of their time together was spent in late night dates, drinking expensive wine and chinese takeout, maybe watching a bad movie, maybe playing chess (Lena insisted she wasn’t letting Kara win, that she had just improved but Kara didn’t believe a word she said), maybe just cuddling under a fuzzy blanket telling each other about their days. And of course, kissing. Now the problem was that even though Kara believed she had a good sense of self control, whenever Lena was around her, it seemed to run short.
