listen…i can tell you all the shortcuts to finding good fic w/finn in it:
tags to avoid like the plague:
”protective finn” : just means mammy finn save ya time keep scrolling
”poe dameron hurts so prettily”: usually in finnpoe fics.. fetishizes/sexualizes the a latinx characters pain plus u gonna get some mammy finn takin care of poe. issa no
”bamf finn/competent finn”: he’s not a bamf lmao they just wrote him as protective finn. aka mammy finn back at it again. PLUS he got a 12 inch dick and he’s 6′5″ now lskjflkjdfl. i know i know “but j i wanna read bamf finn w/o all this racist shit?” dont we all? avoid the tag
”top finn”: so most top finn isn’t even tagged top finn because that’s how common it is. it’s really everything i’ve described. theres nothing inherently wrong with top finn ya know? but the implications/biases that are assigned to top/bottom = dom/sum or caretaker/vulnerable is the reason that you should just steer away from this tag as well. honeslty… the only ppl who should write top finn are black ppl… i just don’t trust nonblack ppl not to continue reproducing racist narratives w/this tag - it’s almost always racist! ugh!
tags to get with:
“finn-centric”: its self-explantory..almost 100% good fics…almost.
“finn deals with some shit”: i know…finn…a known black…dealing with his trauma… unlikely. this tag is just gen but it can also be written as “finn deal with trauma”/etc.
“protective __(not finn)”: lmao what? someone caring for finn???? a black character gets someone to care for them?? wtf? its less likely than u think but click the shit out of it
How does a team clinch a playoff spot? Does that mean even if they lose their remaining games they'll still make it?
okay, let me explain it on the example of Leafs or/and Capitals, I’m gonna try to make it as simple as possible, for those who don’t know the NHL well yet.
this is the Atlantic Division only; table of it
first three (3) teams of each division (amount of the teams in the divison doesn’t matter– it’s always three) automatically clinch a playoff spot. so let’s edit it.
as you can see, the Leafs are 4th, 3 points behind Bruins. a couple years ago it would end like this, no chance for the Leafs to get to the playoffs, of course if we’re talking about the season ending this soon.
however, we have Wild Card these years and this is where it gets more difficult. it really used to be simplier without it.
here’s Eastern Conference, all these teams except of the Islanders are in playoff position now. they’re also the only eastern teams to be so.
the Wild Card is basically (or almost literally) combination of two (2) best teams of the specific conference that have not enough points to be in top three in their own divisions.
you can see all these teams are mixed, from two different divisions.
kinda tricky thing about this is that there could be 3 teams of Atlantic Division in the playoffs + 5 teams of Metropolitan Division (3 top of the division + 2 Wild Card teams), it literally happened last season, same with the Western Conference where there were only 3 Pacific Division teams in the playoffs. so yes, the Islanders and Bolts are direct, really serious enemies of the Leafs in the run for playoffs though they’re not playing in the same division.
but what if the Leafs end up having the same number of points at the end of the regular season, as the Islanders have? well, then that’s quite easy. or not. I’m gonna explain this on the Caps, which have the same amount of points as the Blue Jackets but are still listed as first in the division.
NHL deals with this following ways.
(let’s say we’re/you’re rooting for the Capitals)
1.the first and most important thing you must look at, is the number of games played. 71 - 71. same. this doesn’t solve the problem, so here comes the next thing you look at.
(if the Jackets played one less game, they would be listed first automatically)
2. you would think the second criterion is number of wins, right? well, not exactly… the W column stands for all wins overall- including shootouts, but that’s not the column we’re thinking about now. we’re looking at this one. ROW.
it literally says Regulation plus Overtime Wins. like I said, W is wins overall, but ROW is only number of games won in regulation time and overtime.as you can see, the Capitals have won 46 games overall this season so far, but 45 of them were won in regulation or overtime. that means they have only 1 game in shootouts this season. so shootouts are really not that important to the NHL.
and as you can see, this number is the same with the two teams. again.
3.third and usually the final criterion is the number of points the Caps have earned in games against the Blue Jackets. so basically, it’s a thing about who has been better in the mini Caps-Jackets series of 4 games this season so far.
the first game of this season the Capitals played against the Blue Jackets ended with regulation win of the Capitals, 3-2, so the score is ‘2 points - 0 points’
the second game they played ended with regulation win of the Capitals, 5-0. ‘4 points - 0 points’
that’s all they have played against each other this season. they’re playing 2 more games against each other until the end of the regular season– since they’re in the same division the number of games playing against each other is 4 per regular season.
so what’s the score in the mini series? 4-0 for the Capitals.
so this is finally the reason why they’re listed first in the battle of division title against the Blue Jackets.
4. but since we’ve come this far, let’s talk about the last criterion anyway. this one is simple. NHL literally describes it as ‘The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.’
now you have to look at these three columns.
the first one, GF, stands for Goals For so the number of all goals they have scored in this season. it includes shootouts goals, where one win in the shootouts = plus one goal. this column is tied, again.
the second one, GA, stands for Goals Against so the number of all pucks they have officialy let get past their goalie’s goaline. you can see that the Capitals have been less time got scored at than the Jackets.
the third one, DIFF, goal differential is always and simply this: GF - GA = DIFF.
so 228 minus 159 is 69, that’s the Capitals’ DIFF; while 228 minus 164 is 64, that’s the Blue Jackets’ DIFF.
(DIFF can be totally below 0, Avalanche’s -96 is the worst DIFF in the NHL currently, while Capitals’ +69 is the best.)
the Capitals have this number higher than the Jackets, so even if they have lost one of the games against the Jackets in regulation (let’s ignore the GF/GA change), and the score in the mini series would be ‘4 points - 4 points’, the Capitals would still be listed first in the division, because of the DIFF.
oohhhh and one thing. what about the x next to the names of the teams?
the x next to a team means the team will 100% get to the playoffs, even if they/it lose every single remaining regular season game, even if their divisional opponents win every single remaining regular season game.
the y next to a team will soon appear to a team that will 100% end the regular season with the Divisional Title– will 100% end first in its division.
the z next to a team will soon appear to a team that will 100% end the regular season with 1st place in its conference.
the p next to a team will soon appear to a team that will 100% end the regular season with 1st place in the entire league. there’s an actual trophy for it, called Presidents’ Trophy. the latest winner of it, for the 2015-16 season were the Capitals.
okay, I really enjoyed writing this, more than I expected and I hope the anon, and so you others, find this at least a bit helpful.
Top 5 haikyuu characters that are not animated yet?
Aaaah yes! There are so many characters us manga readers have met that I can’t wait for all my anime viewers to meet and fall in love with!
1. The Miya Twins. I think that us, as a fandom, will never be over the Miya twins revelation. I feel like they are the most popular manga-only characters, especially after the incredible amount of content we are getting lately. I fell in love with Atsumu during the training camp arc, and now that Osamu is there too things are only getting better. Also, GIVE ATSUMU MAMORU MIYANO’S VOICE, I’M BEGGING YOU
2. Daishou Suguru. I can already feel how much the fandom will spit in half the moment our Daishou will show up. Personally, I adore this little snake. With him, we’ve finally got a character who was a perfect opponent, almost a villain, who showed no mercy, who targeted the weak, who was powerful both mentally and physically, who’s manipulative and not afraid of using dirty tactics during matches. He’s not a good boy, at all, we’ve all been mad at him sooner or later, but this only shows how well written he was. And don’t lie to me, we all got a little bit emotional seeing him again during the nationals :’)
3. Teradomari Motoki. Saw you there and I thought: Oh my God, look at that face. You look like my next mistake. Apparently, I have a thing for buffed and gel addicted wing spikers warning the number 4. He looks so much like Bokuto my heart skipped a beat every time he appeared in a panel.
4. Hoshiumi Kourai. His style and physical appearance are very similar to the Little Giant, and the manga is already setting up a great rivalry with Hinata, which I’m very much looking forward to. Also, I can see lots of Bokuto’s personality in him and I’m sure that, if Bokuto never met Hinata, he would have chosen Hoshiumi as his own heir.
5. Komori Motoya. MY GIANT LIBERO SON. He’s so pure and friendly despite his position as the best (and tallest) libero of the series. His is a shared fifth position with our favorite hypochondriac bean Sakusa, because all their interactions are nothing but pure gold.
- bonus: Haiba Alisa. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE MY BEAUTIFUL QUEEN ANIMATED
Levi scrubs the last of the dirt off the coffee table. “Finally.” That’s the last time he trusts Isabel to bring a ‘mystery box’ into the apartment.
He hears a crash in the kitchen, followed by a squeak of “Oops!” Isabel is a freaking tornado with legs. He sighs as he goes to investigate what she’s mussed up now.
“I was never-”
“I know,” Isabel interrupts. “You were never this crazy when you were 5!” she mimics with R’s that sound suspiciously like W’s.
Levi suppresses a grin at her sass. He shoos her off while he rights the stool she managed to topple over.
The doorbell rings and Isabel rounds the corner at top speed. “I’ll get it!”
“No, no, no!” Levi scoops her up. “Remember what we talked about? You’re going to watch a movie while Eren and I study.”
Isabel nods wisely. “‘Cause it took you a whole year just to invite him over.”
Sure, tell the kid a million times not to jump on the furniture with muddy shoes and it’s in one ear and out the other. Mention your undying crush on a certain football player while you think she’s napping, however, and she remembers every single word you say about him. Unless, of course, Hange told her. Quite frankly he wouldn’t put it past them.
Levi takes a deep breath. “Don’t repeat that again,” he says. “Ever.”
Eren knocks on their door. Levi sets Isabel down. “You remember how to set up Netflix?”
“Duh,” Isabel says proudly before marching towards the living room.
Levi laughs. He never imagined himself as the guardian of such a spunky kid at the age of 19, but she makes him a little more grateful for it every day. Even if she does like to pour an entire bottle of bubble bath in the tub and turn the water on full blast. He shudders.
He makes one last stop at the mirror in the hallway to fix his hair before he opens the door. He has to pause a second, the same as always, and just admire Eren’s radiant smile before he can say hello.
“Levi!” Eren says. “How’s it- oh, who’s this little angel?” he asks, peeking around Levi.
Angel. Levi almost snorts.
“I’m Izzy!” Isabel says confidently. “And I’m-”
“Supposed to be watching a movie,” Levi finishes for her, turning around to fix her with a stern look.
Isabel sticks her tongue out at him.
“Izzy, huh?” Eren smiles another brilliant, blinding, beautiful smile. “That’s a cool name.”
Isabel nods. “And you’re Eren.”
Eren tilts his head at her and Levi’s stomach drops a little. “How did you know that?” Eren asks.
“Green eyes. Nice hair. Pretty face.” Isabel ticks each point off on her fingers. “You gotta be Eren.”
“Izzy!” Levi whispers.
Eren raises his brows at Levi’s back.
Levi’s face burns. He refuses to turn around; half because he can’t look at Eren right now, half because he’s having a stare down with a pint-sized hurricane that possesses just as much bravado as he does.
Eren pipes up against the silence that has fallen over the apartment. “Pretty face, huh?”
And like a switch, Isabel goes from scowling to grinning. “Uh huh. Levi talks about you lots. Like, all the time.”
“S’kinda annoying. But he really, really likes-” Levi clamps a hand over her mouth.
“She’s had a little too much sugar,” he explains apologetically. He shoots Isabel a look. “I’ll make sure she doesn’t get anymore for a while.”
Isabel glares at Levi. A hint of mischief lights up her eyes, and before Levi can work out what she’s up to- “Ew!” - she licks his hand.
Levi grumbles his way to the bathroom, turning the water on as hot as he can handle it.
Eren shifts under Isabel’s intense stare. She’s sizing him up, lips set in a firm line and eyes narrowed. She nods, satisfied with whatever conclusion she’s come to and takes Eren by the hand. “C’mon. I’ll paint your nails.”
Eren laughs, and allows her to lead him into the living room. She chatters away a mile a minute. He tries his best to keep up, and nods encouragingly when she finds the perfect nail polish to match his black shirt: the brightest blue in her collection.
He looks around at the pictures on the walls, tempted to ask who they all are, but Isabel says something that catches his attention.
“What was that, Izzy?”
“You’re nice,” she repeats. “That’s why Uncle Levi likes you so much.” She brushes another coat on his index nail. Half of it ends up on his skin. “You like him too, don’t you?” She looks up at Eren and smiles. “I can tell.”
Levi watches them from the archway, waiting eagerly for an answer. Eren simply smiles at Isabel, and when she resumes her work on his fingernails, he gives a small nod.
Isabel is a freaking tornado with legs, and Levi loves her more than anything in the world. Though, watching Eren ruffle her hair with his clean hand, he’s becoming a close second.
Okay so everyone basically knows that Victor has definitely gone to the Olympics but no one talks about the possibility that Yuuri has.
1. Yuri is considered Japan’s best skater
In the anime, Japan has believed this since at least the 2015-16 season. Please consider that 2 Seasons prior would have been the year for the 2014 winter. It’s reasonable that Yuuri would have been considered Japan’s best in 2014 because it’s not likely for skaters scores to vary too much between seasons. [Excluding Viktor Nikiforov & Yuzuru Hanyu who have the ability to score 35+ points above the next skater because they are considered out-liars]
Looking at the scores from Yuri on ice, the competition scores tended to vary by 10-ish points overall from competition. So likely they also all had lower scores 2 seasons ago, if they were competing, because of natural progression. [Unless your an out-liar]
If you're still doing the top 5 thing for Haikyuu - how about top 5 characters that deserve a hell lot more screen time?
Aaahhh there are so many! (this refers just to the anime, not the manga)
1. Ennoshita. I could sit here and talk all night about how Ennoshita Chikara is just…the most important person all day every day 24/7. His backstory broke me in half. Because of all his suffering, he’s gonna be an amazing captain, the embodiment of his parents best features: strong and reliable like Daichi, loving but yet sassy af like Suga. I can’t wait to see him in action
2. Semi. To me he’s the most beautiful of all the Haikyuu setters, a mix of Akaashi and Suga. In fact, he reminds me a lot of Suga, with his struggle as being a third year who had to give in to a younger setter and with his role as the team mom…long story short, he should honestly be illegal and I I feel so robbed because I wanted to see WAY MORE of him
3. Hanamaki. I feel like we don’t actually know anything about Makki??? The fandom is indeed very fond of him and of Matsun, but ??? He seems to be the ultimate sassmaster, I need him to be the pov of a 5 hours movie of all his Aoba Johsai years I feel like it could be a life changing experience
4. Akaashi (and all Fukurodani tbh). Ok. Akaashi is an incredibly popular character compared to the screen time he had. And I’M GLAD. But I want to know more about him, his backstory, his thoughts, his fears, his relationship with his teammates…JUST GIVE ME ALL THE AKAASHI ALREADY, GIVE ME ALL THE OWLS I’M IN NEED
5. Terushima. Even just for the general aesthetic, I feel like we owe a special mention our boy Terushima, I’m sure he’ll provide us with great emotional satisfaction next year! But, looks aside, I liked his character, I want to see his development. After all, he’s the most intelligent character in all Haikyuu (if we look at the classes, for now he’s the only class 7), I guess there is way more of him than what meets the eye…I’m genuinely intrigued.
- bonus: Tanaka Saeko but just because I have a crush on her so the more I see her the better
[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170418 JINWOO & SEUNGYOON for CECI May Issue
Another long hiatus that lasted 1 year and 2 months, reorganization from 5 members to 4. Upon its release, WINNER’s third mini album, “FATE NUMBER FOR” wiped out all doubt that surrounded them and recorded first place on the iTunes Charts in 21 different countries. Even now, two weeks since the release, “REALLY REALLY” refuses to drop from the top of the digital charts. We met with the two people who are at the center of all this talk, Kang Seungyoon and Kim Jinwoo of WINNER. We will suppress the urge to share all the details about how they were deeply natural with each other and how the melodies they hummed together matched so well. That is because it is unnecessary to talk about how WINNER is strong like they always have been and the fact that they still have much to show us.
I saw you two at a restaurant the other day. It was the day after the release of your album and the music videos for “FOOL” and “REALLY REALLY”.
Oh, that was the day we went to eat nasigoreng and pasta!
It was fascinating. Your songs swept the charts and your music videos recorded ten million views in a day but you guys were eating lunch as if it was just another ordinary day. How did you feel?
The amount of attention and love we received for our debut album was unusual for a rookie group. We experienced many different things after that and after a long hiatus, we’re receiving so much love with our comeback so the greatest feeling we have right now is gratefulness.
Oh, could you wait a second? Song Mino just video-called me saying that he wants to be interviewed with us. Hello? Hello? Oh, I can’t hear him well so I’ll hang up.
(Laughing) Is it really Mino?
I just hung up (laughing) Like Jinwoo-hyung said, we received a lot of love with “Empty”, which was in our first album. Personally, I think I tried not to have much expectations for this album (FATENUMBERFOR). I put in the effort not to get excited even when our song got first place on the charts because it might drop soon after.
But even after 2 weeks have passed, it is still at the top of the charts. Is that satisfying?
It is very satisfying.
I am a little satisfied? We were in a situation where we had to prove to people that it was possible for us to overcome the unfortunate things that happened to us and I think that’s been proven to some extent. Also, how it does on charts isn’t very important to me. I’m satisfied that our fans are liking our music.
You talked about which song you liked better in your V LIVE, right? I like “REALLY REALLY” a little more than “FOOL”.
Seungyoon made that.
Seungyoon took part in writing lyrics and composing the songs, right? And Jinwoo shouldered more weight as a vocalist. How did you feel when you listened to the songs for the first time?
Seungyoon usually sings the guide. He knows the color of our group and the vocal tones of the members so he makes songs that suit those things. Seungyoon took a large part in bringing a song that matches my voice well. I practiced and thought about how I should sing it but it feels like I didn’t need to prepare something more than my usual singing voice.
(Laughs) Aren’t you being too thankful to Seungyoon?
I think the reason why “REALLY REALLY” is doing well is because all the members shine in it. For a group to get known by many people and to receive love, it is important for one member to really pull in the attention but the whole group getting shown is also important. I felt that this song could spotlight Jinwoo-hyung so I purposely put a lot of emphasis on Jinwoo-hyung’s parts. When someone thinks, “This person’s voice is pretty good,” then they can comfortably listen to the song while enjoying that vocalist.
Thanks to the start of the song, Jinwoo has also been called the “Where Are You Man” so it seems like what Seungyoon wanted is coming true.
I’m personally very happy because Jinwoo-hyung’s voice tone and singing method and his other styles balance the song.
“REALLY REALLY” is a feel-good love song because it is really honest. Have you ever taken the step forward to honestly confess your feelings like the song?
I did have a time when I was innocent.
Do you think honestly confessing to someone would be difficult now?
No, I think I’ll always be like that…
I didn’t write my experiences into the song. I just wanted to write the feelings I felt when I was very young. In a vague context. If you look at the lyrics, it doesn’t sound like a love story between adults. It has the vibes of a middle school student in a shoujou manga saying, “Where are you? I came because I missed you so come outside.” I purposely did not include the words, “I love you” in the lyrics. It’s not about loving someone, it’s about liking them.
Because you didn’t use strong words, it became a more lighthearted and innocent love song.
It is also my style. I’m straightforward on a daily basis but when I’m confessing my feelings to someone, instead of saying, “I love you”, I say, “I like you” like a tsundere.
So it’s something like, “I love… I love… No, I like you”. On the other hand, “FOOL” is a breakup song. Excluding dating, what is the most regretful thing you have done?
Hmm. You can say that we were at fault for our long hiatus after releasing our second album, “EXIT:E”. That is regretful to me. When I think about our fans who waited for such a long time, I become more regretful about that. I feel like I should’ve worked harder to do something. When I think about it now, I might’ve been blinded by the overwhelming response we got with our first album.
I regret small things. For example, if I had worked harder and studied a foreign language or learned how to play an instrument when we debuted, I would be really good at it now. I regret how I started learning how to play the drums but that has fizzled out now.
You learned the drums? Why?
There were no special reasons at first. But while I was learning it, I relieved stressed with it and my sense of rhythm improved too.
Talking about instruments reminds me about Seungyoon’s guitar. You were always with your guitar when you were on “Superstar K2”. What about now?
I always have my guitars in my room but it’s been awhile since I properly played them. There is a preconceived notion that playing the guitar means that the person does rock or acoustic music. Because of that, I felt that WINNER’s music was getting discolored by me. It’s possible for people to think, “Kang Seungyoon probably does this kind of music. He plays the guitar so he probably can’t do that kind of music.” I wanted to avoid those kinds of obstacles when I’m promoting as WINNER. It is not like I didn’t practice at all but in the past year, I haven’t purposely used my guitar.
There are many people who look forward to your solo activities. Is the music you are working on right now going to influence solo activities?
I think there will be some influence to an extent. Acoustic and rock music will not be completely gone. That type of music is one of the fields I can do. However, once WINNER solidifies as a group more, if I receive the opportunity for a solo album, I have an indefinite wish to title it, “Everything You Want” and include hip-hop, jazz, ballad, rock, and dance songs. I want to make an album that contains all kinds of music so that I can enjoy it, as the person making it, and so that people who listen to my album can enjoy it too.
Both of you are members who act. Jinwoo, do you have plans for any solo or acting activities in the future?
Hmm. Firstly, I’m still scared about challenging myself in releasing a solo song. I lack the certainty in knowing what song or style that will suit me best. I do think about continuing my acting. Since I started it, I want to properly work hard in it.
You made an unprecedented decision to perform in the Korea National Contemporary Dance Production of “The Little Prince” last December.
I really wanted to challenge myself in a new experience. When I was spending my days working out, taking lessons, practicing, and wanting to do something other than those things, I received a very good offer. I thought to myself that I needed to work really hard for it. The Seoul Arts Center stage is not a stage where even modern dancers perform on often. I also received a lot of stress because I was worried that I would be told “he’s like an idol”.
You two are part of a company that is known to make the most “hip” content in Korea. There are sub-labels of YG that produce subculture content too. Is there something you find interesting in the mainstream right now?
DPR LIVE. I think he’s cool because he makes his own music, performs alone, produces videos alone, and just makes everything by himself. I also get inspired by what he makes.
I like DPR LIVE too and contemporary dance is fun too. It’s very liberating. I’m not saying this because I was in “The Little Prince”… (Laughing)
There are many WINNER songs that deal with loneliness and empty feelings. It is a universal emotion but are there times when you are more lonely because you are celebrities?
JINWOO & SEUNGYOON
Yes, very often.
It can’t be helped because there are always limitations on what people do every day and where people can go.
I think celebrities are a little different from people who are recognized by others. We are aware that we are people who are recognized by other people, not celebrities. It’s not just about not keeping ourselves from drinking excessively or having harmless hobbies, we can’t easily do anything. In this context, we ended up growing apart from [non-celebrity] friends and the people who we can meet gradually become limited. It’s not like Jinwoo-hyung and I don’t contact our childhood friends at all but because we can’t meet each other comfortably like in the past, it feels like our surroundings are being compressed.
Once that happens, you naturally end up being alone most of the time. Even if I meet someone, it’s usually my members.
On top of that, both of your hometowns are far from Seoul. Jinwoo is from Imjado Island in Sinan and Seungyoon is from Busan. Do you guys like Seoul?
We really love Seoul! There’s so many things to do here.
(Laughs) That’s a relief.
There are many things to do but there’s not many things we can do. But I like shopping and I can do that to my heart’s content. Most of the friends I’ve met while working are in Seoul anyways so I’ve become comfortable with this city. It’s like my home.
There are really not many people on Imjado Island. I like Seoul because there are so many people. But I don’t like how there are many cars too.
You’ve been to many cities [in and out of Korea]. Is there a city you want to live in?
We went to LA recently. Seunghoon-hyung says he wants to live in LA because the weather is nice and it’s relaxing. But if I were to choose between LA and New York, I would live in New York. For now, I like being in a busy place. I feel like if I live in a relaxing place, I would get depression. I think that’s because I don’t have a peace of mind yet.
I want to live in Sokcho. Unlike my hometown which is in the west coast of Korea, the east coast of Korea has really blue seas. When I saw it for the first time, I was really surprised. I thought I was overseas! I want to live in Korea while looking at a clean ocean. I don’t really like busy cities.
Your choice makes sense.
But I still like Seoul best. New York is nice but Seoul is better.
That’s right. I like being in Korea the best.
I’m going to ask a heartwarming question. What are you to each other?
You go first because you’re the hyung.
Hmm… I’ve been with Seungyoon for a long time. I’ve received a lot from Seungyoon but I’ve never directly thanked him before.
Then can you two say thank you to each other while looking into each other’s eyes?
Thank you, Seungyoon, really! I want to tell my other members thank you too. Hmm. I’m really thankful for them.
I’m also thankful. I get lonely easily and even though we’ll probably live separately in a few years, I feel safe that my family lives with me. Jinwoo-hyung is more special to me because we’ve been together for the longest time.
When I look at Seungyoon, I feel really proud.
Hyung raised me like a parent. When I joined YG, he took care of me a lot.
When Seungyoon joined YG as a trainee, he was already pretty famous but Jinwoo didn’t feel burdened by him?
I thought he would act like he’s all that but he wasn’t like that at all. Almost to the point where I found it fascinating.
I really started from the bottom~
You two are more heartwarming than I expected. It’s a beautiful sight
top 5 times Yuuri realizes that this is his life now
when victor octopuses around him in the morning after the cup of china and says, “hi.” their limbs are tangled together, no fabric between them, and victor smells like sweat and come and traces of expensive cologne. “we should order breakfast up here. pants are for losers.”

We've gotten to see a bunch of flashbacks to some HQ! characters' childhoods, so what about top 5 of the characters as kids or maybe top 5 you wish we could see younger? I really want to see little Noya, because why hasn't that happened yet?!
Oh they are both really nice my bean, I guess I’m gonna go with the top 5 characters I’d love to see as kids! (Making this top 5 I realized there are truly only a few character we haven’t seen as kids!!)
1. Bokuto. Even just to settle the big mystery of his natural hair color, I NEED to see little Bokuto right now immediately. I bet he was a little hurricane…with a not so happy backstory. I’m so ready for Furudate to slay me. (who am I kidding I’m not ready but STILL gimme)
2. Nishinoya. YES I agree with you, baby Noya would be such a blessing, even if I think he was not so different from how he’s now, just…shorter, and maybe even louder! I wonder if he did roll allover the house, jump from the forniture, escape his bed and generally gave hell to his parents. Because I bet he did.
3. Akaashi. I imagine little Akaashi as a Japanese version of Prince George. Royal aura, sassy attitude and death glare included. But also, the sweetest and most beautiful baby boy ever, with huge blue eyes that didn’t change that much.
4. Sugawara. Was he already a little demon disguised as an angel, of did life made him that way? Was he the kind of kid that stole other kid’s toys and his heart melting smile made him impossible to scold? Or was he an actual angel sent from the gods in toddler form? I need answers.
5. Kageyama. We already saw little blueberry in his junior high days, but who doesn’t need to see an even !!! smaller !!! blueberry ??? WHAT IF HE WAS A LITTLE CHUBBY THO AAAHHH
Q. “You just released your first ‘BEST OF’ Album, ‘THE BEST OF BTS,’ which covered all of your activities in Japan for two and a half years. Are there any songs that deeply attached to?” JH: For me it’s “FOR YOU.” It was our first original Japanese song, so it’s very meaningful to me. SG: For me it’s the Japanese version of “I NEED U.” I like how the Japanese lyrics are slightly different than the Korean lyrics.
Q. “Within the Japanese activities until now, what has left an impression (on you)?” J: This is not exactly what you are talking about, but… during the last song of a concert, I always look all around the venue. During that moment, I feel something that isn’t quite happiness nor sadness, it becomes this feeling where I am unable to say anything. That lingering feeling during the ending left the strongest impression. Every concert truly leaves me warm hearted. JM: Our first showcase (December 2013) was in front of about 500 fans. As we did more performances, our venue has grown as well. Now, we have been able to meet lots of fans through our arena tours. Every time, I am very grateful for everything that has happened. SG: I was also super happy when we were able to participate in large music festivals such as Summer Sonic and a-nation!
Q. “At the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards” you won the grand prize (Daesang), given to the ‘Artist of the Year.’ We saw the tears up on stage, what did you feel then?” SG: When we heard the announcement, I started to remember everything we achieved from when we were trainees 7 years ago. The tough times, the happy times. So many memories were going through my head and my heart was full of emotion. Before I realized it, I was crying. I couldn’t stop the tears… JK: I was really grateful to our ARMYs. That’s why, whatever happened, I didn’t want to cry on stage, but I saw the fans and couldn’t help but cry because they have worked hard with us and supported us. I was so grateful that I cried. I am really…, we are really lucky. RM: We were so happy that we went to eat dinner right after arriving back in Korea from Hong Kong! We ordered pasta and pizza. JH: Since the day after we won the award was also Jin-hyung’s birthday, V: We were able to celebrate both (at the same time). J: I ate suuuper delicious food (serious face)! JH: While we ate, we all reminisced. JM: It was fun.
Q. “Apart from the award, BTS was the first Korean artist to place 26th on the American Billboard Chart and placed 1st for the iTunes Chart for 27 countries. 2016 must be a year you’ll never forget.” SG: When we go to countries like Brazil, which are on the opposite side of the world from Korea, and feel the love from fans in those countries, I feel that we are really benefiting from this age in time. V: But…, I want to be more love in Japan as well! (he then made a dog with his fingers and pretended to bite the arm of Jungkook who was sitting next to him) JK: (As if this was familiar (to Jungkook), while escaping from V [he said]) That’s right, we really think this. RM: It’s really interesting. When we perform overseas, fans of completely different nationalities and languages sing our songs with us. V: It’s amazing. RM: This year will be the start of a new “time” that is different from before, for both us and the fans. JM: The truth is, right now, there is a performance that we are thinking of. One which will look cool to anyone and shows us enjoying the stage. We will continue running towards that goal. JK: I want to grow more! In order for that growth to become our weapon.
Q. “Continuous hard work made the BTS who they are today. By the way, what is something that has and has not changed about BTS since debut?” SG: Something that hasn’t changed since debut is our mindset that singing and performance are the top priorities. Even though there are things each member wants to try, we think that we should first think about the goals of the group and what we should aim to be as a group. I think that is one of our strong points (as well). RM: Another one is practice. First, practice. Second, practice. Recently, things that used to take 10 will now only take 5. I think that we’ve become more efficient.
Q. “Seeing your performances, the dances are so complex, it looks really tiring…” SG: (serious face) To be honest, it is tiring. BTS: (lol) RM: But that intense practice is what made us who we are today, so we can’t stop. V: Don’t stop~!
Q. “I want to recommend that you guys stop and rest sometimes.” SG: Recently, it’s been very difficult because we’ve had to practice tough choreography continuously for many performances. Until around last year, it’s accurate to say that we just pushed through with it. But we realized that that could damage our health, so recently we eat healthier and take supplements to stand on stage while maintaining our health. JK: We have to increase our endurance.
Q. “We’ll go back to the (previous) topic, but what has changed about you (since debut)?” V: When we debuted, we didn’t know anything, so we just worked hard at what we were told to do. Now we can express our own opinions and think about what to do next. JK: Yeah, we’ve now come to think deeply about a lot of things. Rather than say this was a change, it seems that our attitude towards work has matured. JM: Our feelings towards the stage and our fans have changed as well. JH: Our growth as humans, in performance, and in how we interact with everyone. So many things have changed, but what has changed most is our internal feelings. It’s as if we’ve accepted and acknowledged that “we are professionals.” Things that are seen by the public and thing that aren’t. JM: “We are professionals”?… Surely, the way we look has changed a lot too. RM: When we were trainees, for all of us, our singing, dance, and fashion sense were not refined (lol). But now, I feel like we look a bit more like celebrities.
Q. “So, from now on you will continue to grow as artists and continue to ‘Attack on Bangtan.’” J: We will continue to attack! RM: We can’t stop now (lol).
Kai: hmmm….I see……. you can vote until 20 June so there’s still time, we’re waiting for many more! Reita: if there are songs you haven’t heard before, be sure to take this opportunity and listen to the previews! the voting’s not over yet so I’m looking froward to the rankings. I voted, too! Aoi: thanks for voting, guys! it’s still on so we’re waiting! Ruki: you can now listen to all the songs on the song request page so please make sure to check them out. I was expecting that our regular songs that we often play at LIVES or the really popular songs would have a high ranking, but the songs that are below the top 5 are also at a close race so try voting for the songs you wanna hear live! Ruki: by the way, what I was most surprised about was that at first DOGMA was like 5th on the raking lol I wasn’t expecting DOGMA✡🙏✡ at FujiQ at all, that’s how much this request list is changing with every day. it’s pretty interesting to watch lol Ruki: but then, the songs I wanna do are pretty far below that it made me cry 💃 by the way, Uzuku aka to〜 which I requested when we were doing Dainippon Itan Geisha is also at the bottom of the request list, I had to cry 🙊 Ruki: apart from that, I wonder if it’s gonna be sunny or rainy on that day 🙄 I’m also imagining how it would be to select certain songs for like when it rains or this and that song for when the sun is setting and…I guess, we have no choice but to win the gods over to our side 🙏 Aoi: I’ve been so swamped and busy since yesterday that it feels like it’s been like 2 days that have passed. today I was able to meet my friends and my friends from Osaka and kouhais that I haven’t met in a while which made me very happy, I’m satisfied. now I’m gonna take a bath and go to sleep like melted butter.
Yurio [wearing Versace, Fendi, Gucci, Prada and Luois Vuitton and a bunch of bills] :
😈😈you already know how it is 👌👌💎Money team💵💰🔥Square up.🔫🔪 To all my haters😷🙈. Started from the bottom 👎now we on top👍👊😎 Success🔥🔥 Patience is key🔑 💯The life💯this one's for my angels👼Let's get it😼
Victor [get's emotional]:
aww you're wearing my clothes.
Hey hey heeeey!!! (Heh) I'm addicted to reading your top 5s! Can you please do a top 5 for the most underrated characters in your opinion?
Top 5 underrated Haikyuu characters!!
can you please do the top 5 most underrated characters in haikyuu? love your posts
Due to popular demand…here we go with the top 5 most underrated characters of Haikyuu. I mean, there are LOTS of underrated characters, mostly all the secondary characters are, but some of them deserve way more love and recognition.
I would like to clarify that of course this my opinion and it’s heavily influenced by my fandom experience but, after all, anyone could see who are the fandom favorites (yes this list is based on fandom recognition, otherwise it would have been impossible to make).
1. Ennoshita. I could sit here and talk all night about how Ennoshita Chikara is just…the most important person. His backstory broke me in half and, because of all his suffering, he’s gonna be an amazing captain, the embodiment of his parents best features: strong and reliable like Daichi, loving but yet sassy af like Suga. I can’t wait to see him in action
2. Tanaka. He’s one of the most consistent member of the team, he basically always scores, he would die for his team, he’s one of the funniest and most supportive characters ever and yet no one seem to notice him. I mean, I know we ALL love him, but just have a look at the tags of my top 5 reasons to love Tanaka and you’ll see what I’m talking about
3. Asahi. Our glass heart ace deserves all the love possible. He’s one of the characters that had the most character development in Karasuno, he grew up so much during this three seasons and I’m infinitely proud of him. Starting at his very bottom, almost quitting volleyball for good and then becoming a supportive senpai and an always reliable ace. It’s so heartwarming to watch how quietly confident he is now :’)
4. Yaku. I’ve talked with the #1 Yaku fan out there (my dear @haikyuuliberos) and we agreed on the fact that Yaku is so much more than what meets the eyes. For sure he’s sassy and and angry little kitty, but still he’s an incredible player, he’s extremely passionate about volleyball and he has a huge heart in that tiny body of his. After all, he’s the one in charge of training Lev…he deserves an award just for that
5. Ukai Keishin. I have a gigantic soft sport for him, he’s a hard worker, he’s competitive, he’s determined and will literally die for his crows. Even if they truly manage to get on his every possible nerve, no one loves them as much as he does. Overall, every single thing Karasuno accomplished, they own it to him.(the fact that he’s a fine piece of pastry too it’s another story….or is it?)
- bonus: of course my thoughts go to Narita and Kinoshita, to Konoha and Komi, to ALL Dateko, and to all the other secondary characters out there. You’re all amazing and we love you very much a lot.
A/N: HERES A NEW STORY IM SORRY ITS BEEN LIKE 5 YEARS SINCE IVE UPDATED!! I hope you enjoy! Also spoilers to the last episode, but I mean do I even have to warn you of that?!
“FP is innocent, we’ve already proven it now let him out of that cell!” Y/N yelled, but Sheriff Keller shook his head.
"He is going to be charged with tampering with evidence, obstruction of justice, mishandling of a body, perjury and that’s just off the top of my head!“ he yelled angrily, and he watched as Jughead and Y/Ns faces fell. "He’s not getting out anytime soon.” he said more calmly, but Y/N and Jughead weren’t having any of it.
“He was threatened by Clifford!” Jughead yelled but Keller kept his calm exterior, he knew that Jughead was just hurting. “Clifford told him that if he didn’t confess I’d end up shot just like Jason!”
“It was brought to my attention that Clifford threatened him after he was arrested for the murder, what about the days, weeks, hell even months before that?” Keller asked.
“He was scared! Clifford could have had him killed next, or even worse Jughead. I would be terrified to come out and say something too!” Y/N exclaimed, marching up to Keller and getting into his face. “First he had to clean up a murder he wanted no part of, then he hid in fear for months because he didn’t know if he or his family were next, then he was framed, and now that he was finally cleared of those charges, you’re keeping him locked up away from his family that he was only working to protect?! Let him out!” Before Keller could respond, the deputy and a few other officers started walking through the room with FP in handcuffs, and his presence didn’t go unnoticed by Y/N and Jughead.
“Dad!” Jughead yelled, and FP turned to face him and Y/N. “Dad we’re going to get you out of here.”
“Yeah FP, you’ll be home soon!” Y/N said, running towards the officers.
“Jughead, Y/N, you two need to get out of here. I’ll be fine.” FP said, nodding towards the door. “Go on, go be kids, you’ve done enough with this murder case, I don’t need you two getting yourselves into any more trouble.” Jughead and Y/N shook their heads, and Keller nodded.
“Listen to your dad Jughead, get out of here. Let the adults take care of it.” Keller said, his comment enraging Y/N, and she looked over her shoulder to Keller.
“Funny you say that, because it was the kids who solved the murder, not the adults in this hell hole. You guys do a shit quality of work and hold innocent people hostage instead of going out and taking in the real problem starters! I don’t think that’s how policing works.” she spat.
“Hey! Y/N, that’s enough!” FP yelled, making the girl turn back around to face him. She hung her head low, and his face softened as he looked between the two. They were just trying to help him. He turned his attention to Jughead and hardened his face again, he couldn’t risk showing too much emotion in front of them, they were just as weak as he was. “You need to take her and leave, I’ll be okay son, I promise.”
“This is not up for discussion.” FP interrupted. “Go on.” Jughead slowly nodded his head, turning for the door, but Y/N wasn’t going to give up so easily. FP did a lot for her, he was like a father to her, and he had always helped her. Even when he took up drinking and Jughead left, he still did his best to help, telling her how to take care of Jughead and he even pushed to her to the realization for her feelings for the beanie clad boy, not that they mattered because he was with Betty. She wasn’t about to give up on the man that never gave up on her or Jughead, she was going to fight.
“I am not leaving here until you’re free FP, I cannot, I will not take this lying down. You never gave up on me, so why should I on you?” she asked, practically pleading him to not send her away.
“There isn’t anything you can do now Y/N, I have to face the consequences of my actions.” he said tenderly, hoping that his calmness would convince her to leave. She started to tear up, her cheeks wetting and she became panicked.
"I was the one who took care of Jasons body, he is just covering for me!“ she blurted out. "I-I-I put him in the freezer and cleaned up his blood off the floor and I-”
“Y/N knock it off with the lies!” FP yelled, and the girl shut her mouth quickly. “You are not going to give any false confessions to get me out of here, you are sixteen, go live your fucking life and be happy. I made my decisions and I’ll be damned if I let you or Jughead ruin your lives because of me.” he scolded, and she crumpled as she felt Jughead put his arm around her shoulders and pull her back. “Get her out of here Jughead. You two go be kids now, you’ve done enough for Riverdale, and I am so damn proud of you.” Jughead nodded his head, and started pulling Y/N towards the door.
“No! FP!” she yelled, but the officers took him into another room and Jughead closed the door to the police station behind them. She fell to the ground and Jughead caught her, and she cried into his chest.
“He’ll be okay, we won’t give up, but you need to learn when to pick your fights because the middle of the police station is not the right place to have one.” Jughead said, trying to calm the girl in his arms. She sniffled and took herself out of his embrace, and she wiped the tears from her face, looking at the police station behind Jughead. She knew Jughead was hurting, she knew he thought that this was unfair and she knew he was angry and sad. FP was the last of his family out here in Riverdale, and they were trying to take that away from the boy, it was unfair. It was then she decided she was going to do something drastic to set FP free, not only for him but for the boy she secretly loved.
Knock Knock Knock
Jughead quickly pulled away from Betty, the both of them looking towards the front door. “is that your mom?” he asked, mentally cursing the interruption.
“Who else would it be?” Betty breathily replied, and Jughead pulled away, making his way to the front door. He put his shirt back on and adjusted it, preparing to see Alice Coopers face when he opened the door. He pulled the door open and looked outside to see a group of Serpents waiting for him, and his eyes went to a dog that barked at his appearance.
“Easy Hotdog, he’s family.” One of the men said, leaning down to stroke the dog. Jughead looked back up to the long-haired man in the front of the group.
“Hey…” Jughead said, obviously confused by the sudden visit.
“Your dad could have named names but he didn’t,” the man started, looking up at Jughead. “Serpents take care of their own. We wanted you to know that no matter what happens to him, however long he’s gone, that we got your back.” Y/N emerged from behind the man and Jugheads eyes quickly fell on her. He opened his mouth to say something, but then he noticed the jacket she was wearing, and the one she was holding. She smiled up at him and handed the jacket to the long-haired man. The man took the leather jacket with the Southside Serpents sigil on the back, and held it out to Jughead. “This is yours, if you want it.” Jughead looked at Y/N again and took the jacket from the man, examining it.
“Look Juggie, you don’t have to take this, but we want some justice for your father,” Y/N started, and Jughead tore his eyes away from the jacket to look at her. Cheryl walked out from behind Y/N and stood beside her, and Jughead noticed she wore a jacket as well.
“We all want some justice for FP, and we want to stop living in control of other people who are telling us how we should feel and act.” Cheryl ended Y/Ns sentence.
“We are our own people, and we make our own decisions. We can’t let the corrupt police station sit on their ass and not take the justice and equality of Riverdale seriously. We have to do it ourselves if we want something done. Whether you want to join us is up to you, we won’t have any hard feelings if you decide against it, but just know that we do care for you and have your best interest at heart, your dads best interest at heart.” Y/N said, walking up to the first step and climbing up. “We love you Jughead.” Jughead looked at the (Y/H/C) girl in front of him, and she smiled softly at him. “I love you.” She whispered, and Jughead realized in that moment he had his feelings mixed up, and he felt the same towards her.
He looked back down at the group of serpents at his door step and a smirk appeared on his face, he knew what he was going to do. He slid the jacket on, grabbing the lapels and adjusted it, smiling down at the jacket and then up to Y/N who was beaming.
“Juggie?” a small voice came from inside, and Jughead looked over and saw Betty watching him. She must have seen the whole thing, and he slightly panicked. He didn’t want to hurt her, that was never his intention, but he realized the one whom he had loved for what seemed like forever loved him back, and he was finally apart of something he could get behind. The resistance, the change Riverdale needed. He finally had a home and was where he belonged.
“You made the right decision boy,” the long-haired man said, smirking. Jugheads gaze fell upon him, Y/N and Cheryl. “We’re being led by the best, someone who has the right ideas and the right plans of action, Y/N herself.” He said, slinging an arm around the girls shoulders. Y/N smiled, and turned to Cheryl, grabbing her hand and pulling her into a hug as well.
“Speaking of, we have some business we need to take care of, don’t we Cheryl?” Y/N said, and Cheryl nodded her head.
“I do believe we do.” She smirked, looking up to Jughead. “Care to join us?” she asked, and Jughead nodded.
“Juggie!” Betty called, and he looked over at her apologetically. “Can we talk about this?” she asked, and Jughead quickly stuck his head inside the house.
“I can’t right now, we can talk later.” He said, and she rolled her eyes. She opened her mouth to say something but Jughead ran down the steps, joining Y/N and Cheryl at the bottom and they started to walk off. Betty couldn’t believe it, he was actually going with them, Jughead Jones was a serpent. She quickly dressed herself fully and put her shoes on, following them to where-ever they were going. She wanted to make sure Jughead was safe and wasn’t getting into trouble, although with the serpents she was sure that was what they were going to cause.
“Cheryl?’ Penelope called, entering Thornhill and looking around. There was no answer though, so she called again. "Cheryl?”
“In here mother.” Cheryl called from another room, and Penelope followed the sound of her voice. She walked into a living area and saw Cheryl and another person standing in front of the fireplace, white dresses on and candlesticks in hand.
“What are the serpents doing outside, and what is that smell?” Penelope asked angrily. “And who the hell are you?” Y/N and Cheryl turned around, facing the red-headed mother who had been torturing Cheryl all her life.
“Gasoline.” Cheryl said. “It’s the only way we can truly start over, be purified.” Cheryl said, grabbing Y/Ns hand as they watched Penelope’s face turn to horror and shock at the realization of what was going to happen. Cheryl looked at Y/N and smiled. “It’s the only way I can truly be free.” Together the girls threw the candlesticks down, and fire erupted in the room.
Jughead watched as fire enveloped the Thornhill mansion, and the serpents all started to cheer. Adrenaline coursed through Jugheads veins as he watched, excitement taking over for Cheryl. He watched as Penelope ran out of the mansion, tears and fear covering her face. She coughed as the smoke in her lungs was replaced with fresh air and she stumbled backwards, looking up at the flames replaced her once beautiful house. Betty ran from the nearby trees, finding Jughead and pulled on his sleeve.
“What the hell Jughead, did you guys do this?” she yelled angrily, looking at the raven-haired boy. He was about to answer but the serpents yelled and they turned towards the front doors, and saw as they started to open again. Cheryl and Y/N walked out hand in hand as if the house behind them wasn’t on fire, and they made their way down the stairs smiling wide. Two serpents made their way to the front and met them near the front, handing them each their jacket and they put them on. The serpents started yelling and celebrating, and Jughead couldn’t help but do the same.
“Jughead listen to me! Are you going to be with the serpents, yes or no?” she asked, and Jughead looked at her.
“Of course Betty, they’re going to help me get my dad out.” He said, and she shook her head.
“We can do it another way-” she started.
“We can’t, this is the only way, and if I do say so myself, this is a pretty damn good way to do it.” He said, and she rolled her eyes.
“You know what Juggie, you can have the serpents and you can have Y/N, we’re over!” she yelled angrily, and Jughead looked at her confused.
“What?” he asked, and she backed away slowly.
“I can’t be with a serpent, go make all the trouble you want, just leave me out of it. Goodbye Jughead.” She turned and stormed off, and Jughead watched. Y/N walked up to Jughead and he smiled at her, fixing her jacket.
“I’m proud of you, Jughead. And I hope you know that I’m going to help you get FP out, I’m here for you.” Y/N said, and he nodded.
“I love you too.” He blurted out, but his voice was mostly muffled by the sounds of cheering serpents and Penelopes yelling and crying.
“What?” Y/N asked. “What about Betty.”
“We all know she’s still in love with Archie, she’ll be fine.” Jughead said, pulling Y/Ns jacket and smashing his lips with hers. When they pulled apart, Y/N giggled and grabbed his face.
“I’ve wanted to do that for awhile.” She admitted, and he nodded.
“Me too.” He said. He looked behind Y/N to Cheryl who was standing and smiling up at her burning house, her mother crying and yelling at her. “Did you recruit her?” he asked, and Y/N turned to look at her as well.
“After you all left for the jubilee, I stayed behind and talked to her. We almost lost her, Jughead. I couldn’t imagine Riverdale without her. Sure she was a bitch, but she had a lot of shit going on and people deal with it in different ways, she just needed someone to like her for her and be there for her. I want to be that person, I want to help her.” Y/N said, smiling over to the ginger.
“I’ll help her too, I know some of what she’s going through.” Jughead said, and she smiled up at him. “So, you’re leading the serpents now?” he asked
“I am, with the help of Cheryl and you if you want.” She said, and Jughead nodded.
“Of course.” He replied, and Y/N beamed.
“Good, we’re going to bring Riverdale back to its feet. Whether people like it or not, the Serpents are going to be the good guys, even if we have to do some bad stuff along the way.” Y/N said, and Jughead took her hand. Together, they walked over to Cheryl, who tore her gaze from the burning house and she smiled at them. Y/N took her Cheryls hand in her free one, and they stood and watched as smoke rose into the sky and the bright light of the fire lit up the night. This was their first mark, they burned down the source of evil from the past few months in Riverdale, and with that it could be renewed, purified.
“Ready to go?” the long-haired man yelled, and the two of them turned.
“Of course.” Cheryl said, and Penelopes face turned to rage.
“You aren’t going anywhere, young lady!” she screamed, but the three of them started walking towards the group. The loner writer with the broken family, the tortured queen bee with the evil family, and the lost new girl who had no family at all walked together, ready to take the world by the balls. They were the change, they were going to bring peace, even if it meant bringing Riverdale to its knees.
How to say ‘’You’re stupid’’ in Serbian - a guide by me
Note: before we start I need to mention that these are not strictly used to say ‘’you’re stupid’’. Some of them may be used when someone’s simply talking shit.
*Also, some people may take these as a joke, some may be offended. You never know.
1. Лупаш као Максим по дивизији. (Lupaš kao Maksim po diviziji.)
Translation: You’re banging like Maxim on division.
Explanation: There are two stories about the origin of this phrase. The first one’s stating that during WWI there was some guy named Maxim who was firing lots of shots but with little or no effect, therefore this phrase is used to describe a person who says a lot of stupid shit. The second (and more reasonable) story says that Maxim we’re talking about here is either Hiram Maxim, the inventor of the first portable, fully automatic machine gun, or the gun itself (called the Maxim gun). Either way, it’s about firing lots of words shots, often with no effect.
2. Лупаш као отворен прозор. (Lupaš kao otvoren prozor.)
Translation: You’re banging like an open window.
Explanation: Well, there’s not much to say about this one, but its meaning can be connected with famous promaja (draft / draught). The air that is flowing between two open windows (or doors) is making windows open and close constantly (it’s usually about the casement window) and they make the banging noise. So that’s it.
3. Кад лупиш ни Дунав не може да те опере. (Kad lupiš ni Dunav ne može da te opere.)
Translation: When you say something even the Danube can’t wash you up.
Explanation: I think this one’s pretty clear, the Danube is a huge river, you must have said lots of shit if even that amount of water can’t wash you up.
4. Немој да једеш говна кад ти је бурек јефтинији. (Nemoj da jedeš govna kad ti je burek jeftiniji.)
Translation: Don’t eat shit when burek is cheaper.
Explanation: The only thing that (maybe) needs to be explained here is burek. Burek is a pastry made from layers of dough, alternating with layers of other fillings in a circular baking pan and then topped with a last layer of dough (at least that’s how we make it in Serbia. It’s a bit different in other countries).
Note: Burek was cheap at the time someone came up with this phrase. The price’s been increasing so now you actually have an excuse for eating shit instead of burek.
5. Јеси ти глуп(a) или ти ноге смрде? (Jesi ti glup(a) ili ti noge smrde?)
Translation: Are you stupid or your feet smell?
Explanation: Oh this is just you assuming that your interlocutor maybe isn’t really stupid (who are you to judge, right?), maybe it’s just smell of their feet clouding their mind
Note: This one is not that often heard nowadays, but it used to be really popular 3-4 years ago. It was worth mentioning tho.
Note #2: The ‘a’ in the brackets indicates feminine gender, ‘’glup’’ is for a male person, ‘’glupa’’ for a female (there’s also neuter gender but you’ll rarely use that one when talking to someone)
6. Глуп(а) си као точак. (Glup(a) si kao točak.)
Translation: You’re as stupid as a wheel.
Explanation: I’m not quite sure about this one, but I believe it’s because a wheel can only perform one action, and even that does not depend on it, it’s just how the thing goes.
Note: This phrase may be extended, so you’ll often hear someone say ‘’Глуп си као точак, да извине бицикл.’’ (Glup si kao točak, da izvine bicikl) - you’re as stupid as a wheel, my apologies to the bike
Note #2: Again the same thing for ‘’glup’’ and ‘’glupa’’.
7. Глуп(а) си као ноћ. (Glup(a) si kao noć.)
Translation: You’re as stupid as night.
Explanation: Well there’s no logical explanation for this one except the fact that night used to be stupid and boring before the discovery of electricity.
8. Јеси ти глуп(а) или ти дупе стоји накриво? (Jesi ti glup(a) ili ti dupe stoji nakrivo?)
Explanation: Not much to be explained tbh, the point is - your brain’s missing.
10. Ти ниси баш у винклу. (Ti nisi baš u vinklu.)
Translation: You’re not in a vinkl.
Explanation: I don’t know how I’d translate ‘’vinkl’’ but I can try to explain it. ‘’Vinkl’’ comes from german ‘’winkel’’ (angle). Vinkl is a term we use for angle ruler. So when you tell someone they’re not ‘’in a vinkl’’ that means they don’t equal
90°, or, to put it simply - they’re not normal. Wow, that was one hell of an explanation and you’re probably even more confused now. Sorry. Feel free to ask anything you want to know :)
11. Јел је тебе бабица испустила на главу кад си био мали / кад си била мала? (Jel je tebe babica ispustila na glavu kad si bio mali / kad si bila mala?)
Translation: Did a midwife drop you on your head when you were little?
Explanation: I think this one’s pretty clear. You’re stupid. Period.
Note: ‘’Kad si bio mali’’ - for a male person, ‘’Kad si bila mala’’ for a female
Explanation: ‘’What on earth is making you act (or say something) like that?’’ Yea, that’s pretty much it.
Note: ‘’jeo’’ - masculine; ‘’jela’’ - feminine
13. Ти си недограђен(a) као шапински дом. (Ti si nedograđen(a) kao šapinski dom.)
Translation: You’re unfinished like Šapine’s Cultural Center.
Explanation: Oh boy, this needs a longer explanation. First of all, I have to say that this is not used everywhere in Serbia, it’s a regionalism. You can hear it only in my region. Šapine is a village (near my town, that’s why we’re using this phrase), and it’s kinda famous for its Cultural Center which has been being built for years, but it’s still half-done. So by saying this you’re practically saying that someone’s, well, retarded.
Note: Word ‘’nedograđen’’ has this ‘’građen’’(built) part which indicates that it’s about a building, while english ‘’unfinished’’ can be used for other things as well.
1.) I’m not sure why out of the blue Pledis made a statement saying they have no plans for Nu'est until Pd101 ends and that they don’t know about the future, when its extremely rare for Pledis to EVER make any statements regarding Nu'est (e.g. Their bad treatment, Aron’s injury etc.)
2.) The fact that they said they have no plans “until pd101 ends” and not “until their contract with mnet ends” is A GOOD THING. This means if any members reach top 11, a possible comeback when male ioi members are active is possible.
3.) The reason why they are saying they can’t talk about the future is because Pledis really HAVE NO IDEA what the future of Nu'est will be until we see how many of the 4 members participating reach the top 11. This means its vital for the boys to reach top 11 on pd101.
4.) This also means the contracts with mnet the top 11 boys will sign have NOT BEEN FINALIZED. So they could very well be more flexible than we previously thought
5.) Pledis is not above being purposely vague and shady to create suspense, despite knowing how much emotional trauma it will cause loves
End note: l.o.v.es, I know “hiatus” and “disbandment” are scary words, and reading this made you depressed BUT remember nothing is confirmed yet, and currently the boys are doing very well right now on pd101. So keep working hard, buying their albums, creating new fan accounts and streaming
