Sweden: Sve would be very different in how he approached this. He wouldn’t do flowers, he would rather show them his softer side. Taking them out, not really wanting anything out of that night, just a night to dedicate to listening to his S/O, taking in their features and just enjoying their company with no interruptions.
Finland: SO MANY CUDDLES!!! Finny would be all over his S/O with kisses and hugs. He would make dinner at home because he would feel that he could impress his S/O by showing them what he can do in the kitchen. Then the two would go for an old romantic movie and fall asleep in each others arms.
Iceland: In Icey’s best efforts, he really would try to make dinner, but sadly it would get away from him and it would be take out. But the fact that he tried so hard, his S/O knowing that he was not someone that was really into this sort of thing, it would mean a lot. They would end up binge watching a Netflix marathon and eating cookie dough on the couch. Maybe it wouldn’t be everyone Ideal, but it would work very well for them.
Norway: Norge can be very sentimental and on this occasion and on occasions that still throw his S/O off at times. He would take his S/O to places they had been throughout their relationship. Recounting the days they were there, sitting in the park or a certain books store, just letting them know that he paid attention to those sort of details because the moments he spent with him mattered.
Denmark: Den would be the one to do the flowers and dinner out. He would also take his S/O dancing because he can be pretty social. But it would be the drive home, a song on the radio, he would turn it up and tell his S/O how much they meant to him. Telling them that getting a card was too cheesy and that he’d rather just tell them that they made him happier than he ever had been. Heartfelt and truthful. Laying his heart out there for them.
“Nobody likes her. Nobody wants her here,” Julia said.
“Such a loser. She didn’t even turn in the major project for art, last Friday,” Sophia responded.
“If she’s not going to try, then why is she even coming to school?”
Diving right into the verbal abuse, are we?
This is a pretty standard tactic, in fiction at least, where the bullies talk to each other as if the victim isn’t there, but clearly mean for the victim to hear it. This way, it creates the impression of “this is what people in general think of you and say behind your back”, mixed with “you’re insignificant and it doesn’t matter that you can hear us”.
If these things worm their way into the victim’s brain and they start believing it, the bullies have won.
Despite the way the conversation sounded, they were talking to me. They were just pretending to talk to one another.
Yeah, exactly. I actually considered saying it approximately this way.
It was both calculating in how they were managing plausible deniability while at the same time they were acting totally juvenile by pretending I wasn’t there. A blend of immaturity mixed with craftiness in a way only high schoolers could manage. I would have laughed at the ridiculousness of it, if it hadn’t been at my expense.
“immaturity mixed with craftiness”
If there’s a better concise description of the way bullying in fiction works, I don’t think I’ve heard it.
3. favorite era holy cupcakes that’s a hard one. “everybody” had eyeliner, “lucifer” had onguns blazing, “ring ding dong” had “hello baby”…*sigh*
ultimately, just on dynamics, “dream girl” is probably my fave. jinki flipping a mic stand, everyone asking
about the price of the mic stands, “one fine day”, ALL the ships sailing. everyone was so warm & soft with each other, the music was fun, all-kills, good promotions, floral suits (when will your fave!), & just a really fun time for everyone. no one got hurt!
8. first impression ”why are they wearing fur vests? why is that dude pointing to his back? a romulan! i want that guy’s red pants! holy frick this dance is awesome!!!” - me watching the “lucifer” mv.
one of the really cool things about not having a lot of exposure to other k-pop groups when i got into shinee is that they essentially set the bar for “normal/standard/basic”. when you’re introduced to that level of quality in music, performance, professionalism, group dynamics, & overall politeness it’s really hard to settle for “popular”. their staying power is just incredible & they’ve done it pretty much on their own merit. yes they have sm at their back but even in the very beginning they did much of their own promotions. also they’re just nice to each other. not always, we’ve seen them each be bullied in their own time, but in comparison to other group interviews they’re pretty damn protective of each other.
19. is there another group you like to see interacting with SHINee? have you ever seen them with big bang? because it’s pretty awesome. jonghyun literally jumped onto seungri & they were…very “friendly”. other than that it’s kind of hard to say a “group”. but fx seems to have the most members that match well, & amber definitely seems to be one of taemin’s “safe” people.
20. any collaborations or solo activities you’d like to see? jinki solo & ontae duet (even though taemin doesn’t think he’s good enough). the moment their voices blend in selene 2.6 is so nice.
& honestly i want to see how much taemin clings to jinki if it’s just the two of them promoting. more gripping onthighs or less gripping? grasping at him/hiding behind him more or less frequently? more discussions about jinki’s body or no? ttakbam encouragements? the sangtae, man. the sangtae. #magical
Which bughead moment did you like (i know there aren't a lot of them but even the smallest one) ?
I’m in love with every single Bughead moment, but the little looks they give each other get me every time. The moment when Betty suggested Rebel Without A Cause and Juggie couldn’t help but light up, then he picks that one! The look they give each other at the end of 01x02 when she invites them to join?

OMG i loved those Nor/Nyo!Den headcanons! could we get some fluffy/romantic headcanons for them please? i love this blog!
Ah! Thank you SO much Anon!!!! <3 <3
Nor and Den spend time just laying in bed together. Not in a sexual way, just holding one another, the sun coming into the room as neither one wanting to leave, enjoying the warmth of each other’s bodies. Nor giving Den kisses and making her blush when he says good morning.
When Den makes Norge waffles for breakfast she always puts extra butter on them and makes super strong coffee. Just how her Norwegian likes it. He then smirks at her as he is always impressed at how well she knows him. She giving him a little wink.
There are may times the two don’t need words. They simply look at one another and are so in-tune with one another that they just get it.
When Den will have a hard day, Norge will take her into his arms and rub her back, letting her rest her head in the crook of his neck, wrapping his arms fully around her so she knows she is safe with him.
Den panics when Norge is sick, she fusses and worries over him more than he does himself, so she makes sure she makes him his favorite soup and makes him stay down and rest. Norge finds it comical how much she wants him to be ok. She hate seeing him feel poorly.
Some nights, Den and Norge will sit out and look at the stars. Den leaning against Nor as she rests her head on his shoulder and he rests his head on hers.
Norge loves to run his fingers though Den’s hair or curl the blonde locks around his fingers. Den loves the way it feels and let’s him as she rests her head on his lap telling him about her day or just talking in general.
before hogwarts, James was largely surrounded by his elderly parents & Sirius was pretty much restricted to his family (forever stuck in Victorian times), so it’s completely plausible to me that these eleven-year old punks boarded that train with a combined swearing vocabulary limited to that of a prudish, eighty-year old woman
okay so the refusal to kiss the silver medal scene is really cool because is a throwback to how they each “met” each other.
first is viktor all up in yuuri’s space. he really wants to kiss yuuri, because they clearly have a physical relationship, but yuuri is not into it at the moment (i wanted them to kiss too, but like, they’re surrounded by people who are staring at them). so viktor gets no kiss.
anyway, it is a direct throwback to this:
where viktor is in yuuri’s space because he is under the impression that there’s mutual interest, clearly about to kiss him, and then yuuri scuttles backwards into the wall. it takes months of trust building after that for yuuri to let viktor touch him without nearly dying.
but at the grand prix final something kind of surprising happens, and oh man, it made me so happy. yuuri turns the tables, pushes viktor back, puts his arms around his neck, and makes a request of him.
you know, like this:
the best part are the reactions though. the first time yuuri asks something of viktor, we get this, blushy, breathy sign that viktor is kinda smitten:
the second time? holy fuck. only tiger sweatshirts have elicited this sort of passion in this show. viktor’s never been this excited about anything.
the time limits for this episode were drastic, and i think a confirmed second season also kind of twisted things around a bit plotwise. but even though i kind of wanted them to retire, the juxtaposition in this scene was perfect.
i love it, and i want viktor to make that face every day (and also never again because it’s terrifying)
edit: okay so the ending did not mean the second season was confirmed (who knew) and apparently the ending was planned all along (side eyes episode ten) but i stand by the rest of this post.
1. Friends will leave, Friends you’ve had for years will become strangers, and people that you met in your english class first semester will become your best friends. Time means nothing, and friendships end for all kinds of reasons but one of the biggest reason that you will find for losing friends is that you simply outgrow each other. sometimes people don’t fit in the same ways they used to and thats okay, sometimes you walk the same path to only end up on completely different ends.
2. Just because people do good things does not mean they are good people and just because people do bad things does not mean they are bad people. Don’t judge people based on good or bad deeds, people can be all kinds of surprising and first impressions are almost always wrong.
3. You will miss that boy all the damn time, even when you get over it, there will be days your just looking out the window and the color of the sky will remind you of the time you were laughing in his car singing along to old r&b songs. Its okay to miss him, its okay to be sad about it. Just don’t let it consume you and don’t ever ever ever tell him that you miss him.
4. If they don’t make plans with you, they do not want to hang out with you. People are never always busy. We make time for the things that we want.
5. Stop making excuses for him, stop making excuses for her, stop making excuses for everyone that does you wrong. Their actions do not deserve to be justified. If he is not here for you its because he doesn’t want to be. If an apology is lame, don’t accept it, and don’t make up one in your head. If she lies to you, cut her off. Stop making excuses for people, if someone shows you their true colors, don’t try to repaint them.
6. People are not all bad. when you get out of the mentality that “people suck”, you will start experiencing life. Talk to people, and don’t close yourself off to the world because one person broke your heart. There are so many kind people out there, put yourself out there and stop hating everything and everyone. People can be amazing if you believe they can be.
7.Its okay to not know how to breathe sometimes. Its okay to feel like everything is collapsing on top of you. No one is happy all the time, So many people feel the things you do and its okay. You will be okay, things have a funny way of falling apart just to be put back together again. Nothing is more amazing and more painful than the way your heart can break into a billion pieces and glue itself back together.
AKA: Check Please Couples and Who Gets Up With The Crying Baby
They both try to volunteer and have the other one sleep. “You have an upcoming roadies honey, get some sleep” “No Bits, you have to be up early at the bakery, I got her” and they both end up getting up and checking on the baby together. These two.
They switch off each night (it is marked on a calendar and you are allowed three trade days per month). Sometimes when Ransom crawls back into bed at an ungodly hour Holster tries to give him a sleepy fist bump and ends up nearly giving him a black eye.
Shitty is just?? So impressed?? That Lardo birthed a HUMAN!? He gets up 10/10 times, he’s a nocturnal thing anyway and enjoys sitting in the rocking chair and waxing about the problems with there being a Christmas tree in the White House if we are really going for the separation of church and state
Chowder leaps out of bed, even if it is to bring the baby back to Caitlin to nurse. Even sleep deprived Chowder is a delight to be around because for every yawn he does, he will show you a new picture of his baby.
“No. It’s your turn.”
“I will give you $5,000 if you do it”
“Don’t need it, I married a trust fund boy.”
(And then Nursey puts his cold feet on Dex’s thigh and Dex shoves him and he nearly topples out of bed and Nursey complains the whole walk down to the nursery. Dex falls back asleep to the sound of Nursey’s gentle voice over the baby monitor and reminds himself to make a ‘nursey in the nursery’ joke in the morning)
WOW. THE STORY IS ACTUALLY WAY MORE WELL THOUGH AND DEEPER
*warning! episode 10 spoilers*
WAIT wait wait wait I just realized one thing. It might be just my imagination, but after the episode 10 of YoI…. Like do you remember in the first episode when Victor saw Yuri skating his program and he suddenly decided to become his “coach”? Because why would you fly to another country to train your rival? This doesn’t really make any sense
What if he went all the way to Japan to see him not just because of Yuri’s impressive figure skating skills, but because in that video Victor recognized in Yuri THAT guy he lost after the drunk party and where Yuri is right now?
THAT one guy who asked him to become his coach?
THAT one guy who awakened his feelings and love from the first sight?
Victor fell in love with Yuri even back than after the banquet, but they lost each other after the party. And guess what? Yuri didn’t remember anything from that night because he was too drunk. That’s why he acted so rude when Victor offered to take a photo. Because he didn’t remember. And that’s why Victor looked so lost when Yuri walked away. Victor didn’t understand what he did wrong. THAT guy he was fascinated by just turned around and ignored him!
So let’s come back to this moment
What if he looks not just focused on the video, but kinda…. pissed? Like “You are the first and only one I revealed my feelings to, I finally found you and what am I seeing here? You are skating my program like nothing happened. Do you think I will let you go so easily?”
And here is where the story begins. The circle closed. Victor’s behavior, his ambiguous phrases, the desire to get closer to Yuri …. Everything makes sense now!
But the best thing about all this is that Victor’s feelings are mutual. And he still can not believe in it
understands that the last scene in epi 11 was not a victor/yuuri breakup. the pair obviously need to communicate to each other and come into terms with their feelings about each other's careers. it was only a mere play of words to keep us, the audience, on the edge of our seats till next wednesday. kubo has not yet failed to impress me with her masterful, fast paced storytelling.
OH nooOOOO MY gODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD EnDDD THisSS SUFFERINGgGGG frEE ME fROM MY FraGILE MORTAL FORM #PRAYFORVICTUURI
okay but imagine the space mice putting on a little play to entertain the paladins (kinda like the thing they did with allura in season 2) and they basically make impressions of them and when it comes to keith and lance they just…start bickering like they usually do and then recreate the bonding moment scene and since they can’t speak allura is the interpreter for what they say so she explains that they were emulating that time lance didn’t wanna remember the bonding moment and it’s so funny because at the end of their little sketch not only the imitate they way they look at each other when the other isn’t looking but they also mimick a kiss and keith and lance are immediately flustered and on the edge of their seats like “what….what did they just do?” and allura is like “oh nothing they just suggested u should kiss and make up. you know because you often argue?” and keith and lance briefly glance at each other, swallowing hard before turning in the opposite direction trying to cover their super red faces and i betchu shiro is dying of laughters in the background bc oh boy…his brother just got exposed by a couple of space mice
listen if tango is argentinian and whiskey is brazilian and chilean.... listen
“when you make empanadas they’re bad” “what?” “i don’t know. they’re just bad.”
whiskey realizes that tango’s argentinian, like, day two of orientation. the rest of the team finds out that tango is argentinian because bitty says something about a recipe on pinterest for “south american cookies with caramel in them” and tango fucking falls down the stairs trying to get to the kitchen fast enough
“i didn’t……….. think i was talking that loudly”
cannot go more than four minutes without making fun of each other’s dialects
whiskey’s tango impression doesn’t even involve english, it’s just him yelling “qué HACÉS” and then cackling
they can pick out each other’s cursing from opposite ends of the rink
whiskey can also pick out tango across the rink because he fucking chants “andrés andrés ANDRÉS” whenever he wants something and no one else pronounces it like that
the team thinks they’re stoned all the time because tango brings mate on the bus at 7am and everyone else is like “tango…… isn’t it…….. early….”
so many fights about whether you can or cannot put honey in mate
listen…. can you imagine the first time they let Eric “Tea Is Just A Way To Wash Sugar Into Your Mouth” Bittle try mate
they become known around campus as The Thermos Twins
related: tango isn’t that hyper, he is just coming down from the affects of an extremely caffeinated childhood
weird but abiding love of latinx tv shows in like, absolutely any form. whenever one of them is sick they’ll hide in their room and watch Ugly Betty for hours
ALWAYS FIGHTING ABOUT SOCCER
“we only fight when our teams play against each other”
their teams play against each other in the world cup, the copa america, the copa libertadores, champions league, la liga, the madrid derby, the manchester derby, international friendlies, club friendlies, the olympics (??), THEY FIGHT EVERY WEEK
they play FIFA as their teams to recreate certain matches and then if Tango loses he takes it as an insult against the entire country of argentina
when they play fifa they pretend that germany as a country does not exist, in the name of peace and continued prosperity
ransom tries to play as Bayern one (1) time and they don’t speak to him for a week
they are marginally respectful of each other’s national teams
tango refers to a bad loss in the Frozen Four as “getting brazil’d” so whiskey buys a life-size cutout of Claudio Bravo to put in their room
“i can’t sleep with that man here. why is he looking at me like that?”
whiskey’s favorite petty joke is to complain that tango’s national team never sings along to their own anthem because they’re unpatriotic
“CHUPAMELA it’s not MESSI’S fault that it has A SEVEN HOUR LONG MUSICAL INTRO”
“kun wouldn’t remember the words anyways [the sound of whiskey being bludgeoned with a pillow]”
nursey splashes out for steak for the Haus’ back-to-school barbecue one year and they lose their goddamn fucking minds
dex yells at them about proper diet once so they move their standing papas fritas al caballo date to 4 AM on sundays
someone finds them and they look so pleased but like………. what the fuck
“is that poutine” “no it’s…… fries… a la…. horse?” “W H A T”
The Stockpiling of the Goya Products
do they know when they’re gonna use eight pounds of dulce de guayaba? no. do they need it? yeah.
they have their own little music routine before games but they don’t tell anyone else what they’re playing
it’s their seventeen favorite shakira songs followed by Gasolina by Daddy Yankee
ransom steals their ipod and reads their playlist but he doesn’t say anything because he thinks it’s Ironic
it is not ironic
constantly cracking jokes about how the other one has never seen ice before (”they don’t have ice cubes in Miami” “listen, BRAZIL”) but if anyone else tries to get in on their joke they’ll never ever forgive them. it’s theirs.
