BTS Jungkook’s popularity completely overshadows how much V has to offer. I honestly think that V’s range, tone, and control are all better than Jungkook’s. And why is he never included as part of the BTS Dance Line? He’s an awesome dancer and he slays their choreography every time. Literally everything he does is flawless. I worry sometimes that people choose other members over V just because V likes to make weird faces and be goofy instead of looking conventionally attractive all the time.
ok so in honor of christmas and reaching 7k followers yesterday (honestly, i’m still speechless about this and i don’t really know how to thank you in a way that’s way more appropriate than this) i decided to do yet another follow forever

all right, time for another 5 am headcaon (even if it’s not really 5am).
Let’s talk Minato assigning Kakashi to ANBU.
Now I’ve heard Minato criticized for this move often and I don’t necessarily agree that it was completely healthy for Kakashi myself. However I can see why Minato would do something like that and I’ve got some headcanon about it so here we go (feel free to repost, share this around, or use it yourself if you want to).
When we see Minato approach Kakashi about being ANBU Kakashi’s in a hospital bed reading a book. The book’s title is (I believe) something along the lines of ‘How to Die Like A Shinobi’. Which pretty much tells you Kakashi’s mindset. He’s lost both his teammates, though what he sees as his failings, tacked on with the residual of his father’s earlier death and Kakashi is locking himself down into an ‘all that’s left is to die well’ mindset (open to interpretation but I don’t think I’m really reaching with this one). Now, Minato may be hokage and busy with that, having had to hit the ground running but it’s obvious he’s still keeping track of his student. He wants to help Kakashi, wants to set him on a healthy path, wants to give him an order and structure that will help keep him from falling off into darkness but what can he do? He can’t pay him the one on one attention he was once able to thanks to his new position and its responsibilities and Kakashi doesn’t strike me as someone that would be approachable directly with ‘I’d like to help’.
ANBU answers directly to the hokage, it’s his personal group of shinobi, closer to him every day than the other shinobi that work in and for the village. If Kakashi is in ANBU he’s right there for Minato to keep an eye on and that’s a reason right there for Minato to assign Kakashi to ANBU.
But I’ve got headcanon for another reason Minato might have wanted to do that.
Kakashi has a tendency to shut himself off from others, to be a loner and after a certain amount of time, that’s detrimental. His team helped him open up - but now he has no team. Minato can’t just put him on another two man team. It’s a betrayal, in a way, of the team Kakashi would still consider himself a part of (Obito and Rin)(Gai was a third member for a while in the anime but I think the point still stands) and I don’t think either he or Minato would have wanted to see him working in tandem with two others even if Kakashi would have accepted that. But Minato knows that Kakashi needs to be around people, he needs to have people relying on him and be forced to work in tandem with them as part of a team. ANBU is large enough, loosely structured enough that it can be a team surrogate of sorts without the binding tightness of a permanent three man team. Minato hoped that it would give Kakashi a sense of place and purpose that he would be willing to accept. Do ANBU do the darker, harder, more dangerous jobs? Yes. But it’s already been proven that you don’t have to be ANBU to get damaged emotionally or killed. Kakashi needs challenges to focus on and simple ranked missions aren’t a challenge for him any more. He also needs an outlet for his frustration and a way to prove himself, prove to himself that he can be there on time and save the day even if it won’t ever completely soothe away the times he wasn’t. He needs something to focus on and something to bind him back into society and the company of others. And, just maybe, he needed to be able to hide in the shadows for a while away from village whispers. ANBU provides all of those with the addition of letting Minato interact with him daily and keep a personal eye on him as well.
And Minato does keep an eye on him, as shown with his conversation with Sarutobi where he shows his worry about his student and his uncertainty that he might not have made the right choice in assigning him to ANBU. Minato has no road map for this kind of thing. Konoha isn’t very good (read that as: is horrible) at dealing with the psychological repercussions of the lifestyle its shinobi lead. Minato is doing his best to give his student what he thinks his student both needs and will accept and Sarutobi’s suggestion about watching over a pregnant Kushina brings a huge relief to Minato you can see on his face.
The rest is canon.
Was assigning Kakashi to ANBU the best choice? Maybe not. Maybe other people can think of better choices. Minato worked with what he had and made the call.
And when Kakashi signed in for his ANBU uniform, he dropped his book about how to die in the trash.

This big discussion about the way Riley is treated by the other characters reminded me of something that really bothered me about Girl Meets Rah Rah.
In an episode where Riley was determined to put herself out there, make herself vulnerable and go after something she wants (which we know she’s been struggling to get better at since season one) with no support from anyone–in fact, active discouragement from everyone–the gang, Cory and Topanga included, spent two thirds talking down to her, telling her it was a waste of time, poking fun at the very idea that she thought she would be good enough. And suddenly pulling a 180, switching gears at the last minute doesn’t erase that. In one of the last scenes Maya asks Riley, with disbelief in her voice, if she ever thought they would let her ring the bell and give up.
I certainly did. Because they’d spent the entire episode pressuring her to do so.
How am I meant to reconcile that with the closing scenes? Like what was all that other stuff???? Just having a laugh ridiculing the 13-year-old who, only two episodes ago, was hiding in bed, reduced to tears by the bully that was targeting her with threatening texts? Why am I supposed to find this funny???
I was so proud of Riley in this episode, maintaining that belief in herself when all her loved ones told her she wouldn’t be enough. And for the show to pull something like this, letting the other characters jump in at the last second, when her hope finally starts to slip, and give them the moral high ground to lecture her about not giving up… that really pissed me off.
I hate when people try to defend maiko/slam zutara by saying “Mai is the only one who can handle Zuko”. Like not only is that pretty messed up rationale for a relationship, but it’s just not true? Like what is the basis? That Zuko is hot-tempered and impatient? Mai’s cold, cool, and apathetic? Zuko’s hot-headed, warm, and empathetic? They’re parallels? Is that it? Because you don’t have to be cold and uncaring to be able to shut down BS. Like Zuko does have a tendency to get angry, and impatient, etc. sure, he gets better through the years and stuff, but it’s still a flaw he carries.
But, that doesn’t mean Mai has to be cold and uncaring and downright mean to Zuko to “tame his fire”. It’s not like the guy’s in this unconsolable rage 24/7. Katara isn’t some fluffy, subservient bunny who’d put up with BS. She’d call Zuko out the way Mai has sometimes, but Katara would probably handle it a lot more maturely. Katara also would be a supportive figure. The same with Zuko to Katara; Zuko would support Katara wholeheartedly in her career. Zuko got excited and proud for Mai’s success and strength and growth. He’s a supportive person. He supported Katara in her mission to find her mother’s murderer, too. Zuko knows how to accept and deal with Katara’s flaws too. They both accepted and could manage one another’s flaws as beautifully shown in The Southern Raiders. The accidental chemistry with these two is uncanny.
it’s who I am. Being ace wasn’t a choice, but it is still an important part of my identity.
I really like cake!
It’s who I am and you should never be ashamed of yourself, regardless of what other people think. Their opinions are irrelevant
I am a flawless celestial being just the way I am
i’m proud of who i am. this isn’t just limited to my being ace, but to most things. being ace is one of my many aspects and I am proud to be me, to exist, and to live my life as only I can. I wear my ace ring with pride and if someone asks or the topic gets very sexy, i just might bring it up. I’m not ashamed of it. I’m proud to be who i am, and I’m proud to be ace, and I’m proud to therefore be a part of such a (usually) loving and supportive community. ^.^
I like it being part of a really inclusive and positive comm
I like being part of a positive and inclusive community my relationships show that you can have love without having sex
The puns, the community, and why not?
I know there are other people like me, and we all are going though the same things.
because we are unique, our community is amazing, we are surviving in the world that is throwing sexual attraction in our faces, we are literally rebelling against society’s standards just by being ourselves and also naturally - because I am asexy and proud to be me
despite the ace-phobia I deal with I really can’t picture myself as anything else
I can provide a unique perspective, unhindered by personal bias for a certain gender. I can see past sexual tension, lust, and other communication/relationship difficulties because I literally don’t even experience those types of feelings. Being ace is all I’ve ever personally known, and while I don’t always fit in because of it, I find it something unique and entirely positive. Plus, there are a ton of adorable ace jokes ^.^
“Our other friends don’t 100 percent get it,” Ms. Williams said. “Sometimes it is nice to just be with the one person who does.”“No one else gets it like you get it,” Ms. Turner said to her, sincerely, before turning playfully mawkish: “No one gets me like you do.” - Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner
Midnight. Sleep time. School tomorrow ugh. Soo, I will be much less on Tumblr from now on. My exams are in the end of the month and I do have to study like a dog. Like I never did. So… I will miss being here 24/7 like I’m used to. I know any of you will miss me, but sill.
#theblackout I’m a little self conscious about my acne scars on my legs but I love them nonetheless. I will show them off more in the summer. And this is for all the other people who don’t have flawless skin, you are just as special!
*looses my cold permanent starter call so casually remakes a new one*
I feel like this is really handy to have on the side in case I ever have a heap of muse but not sure who wants to write so yeah, this is a permanent starter call that is open to both mutuals and non mutuals. By liking this post it basically grants me permission to:
tag you in random starters whenever the muse calls for it
send you all the memes in the world
send you random messages about possible plotting
and of course, all other random things that involve me interacting with you flawless people <3
I should warn you all that who I end up messaging/writing starters for all depends on how my muse is at that time. It may be selective, or I may wanna write with everybody. Like I said, it just all depends on how my muse is at that time. However, I will try my very best to at least message/write a starter for everyone who likes the post (at least those that meet my guidelines) at some point. I will have other starter calls posted from time to time, but this is going to be my main one :)
