and wonder about life

Overanalyzing Jimin’s playlist

I just wanted to say I noticed some people are kinda over-analyzing? Like, I’m the first person to go and be like “wow Jiminie, you go, you smexi beast” over that playlist. And also, I honestly believe there are meanings behind certain songs about Jimin’s life and JiKook (actually I have this small “wondering-about-it” post unfinished, I will publish it tomorrow).

Because I simply love how songs can sometimes tell the story or feelings when we’re not able to do so. Whether the words, or the title, or the tune – sometimes one piano track can scream your feelings louder than hundreds of words.

Yes, the fact is that Jimin’s playlist is stuffed with “making out” material, deep electronic sounds, r’n’b, with sexual undertone and lyrics about sex. But I never, even for a second, thought that every song of this particular playlist is trying to tell us something (hell, I refuse to admit it sometimes, but maybe none of the songs are ‘trying’ to tell us something, but I’m too deep so that won’t be the case for me, ever :D).

It tells us Jimin likes this kind of music, sensual, it’s his favourite making-out music, but I don’t think there’s really need to go and break every single word of those songs in tiny pieces. I feel like those slower, calmer ones are those that may be telling us something. But I honestly think Jimin loves this kind of music – he can perfectly dance to it, just like we saw so many times, hip thrusting, body rolls, biting lips, his hand in his hair—

Okay.

I almost got carried away. But the point is, I’m not saying that some of those “more heated” songs are not carrying something more in them, but to focus on it?

In past 24 hours I saw countless asks all over my dash and in JiKook tag.

Is Jimin having sex so he can forget Jungkook? He is probably straight, after all. Jimin is hurting so much, IT’S SO OBVIOUS. Jimin [insert problem] with Jungkook.

I know we all tend to overthink, like :D, I’m the queen of overthinking. But at the same time I try to be a realist and I always scold myself when my mind is trying to analyze silly things. Also, I do a lot of research if I want to claim this or that.

I’m not trying to be rude towards anyone – we all have our opinions, it’s okay! But it just makes me kinda sad to see so many people overanalyzing some sexy-songs, like everything had to have a meaning and that meaning is connected to JiKook and mostly, it’s about Jimin’s unhappiness. Like, I have tons of songs on my phone that I listen to on a daily basis, I love the lyrics – but just like 30% connects to my current, daily situation. Some songs remind me of past, some of them help me to picture the future. Some of them have beautiful beat and just make me happy.

So please, stop torturing your hearts with, I think not-too-necessary, analyses. Not everything has to have a meaning – and that’s coming from me, queen of overthinking and overanalyzing.

Instead, focus on what we saw in last days in those V-lives. I don’t think that after looking at domestic JiKook on Eat Jin or that stare someone’s capable of wondering if Jimin is having casual sex to forget about Jungkook.

That would be all.

Sorry for this monologue!

PS: I’m not trying to insult anybody; I just noticed those asks, for example at  mimibtsghost  tumblr, after she posted her playlist-related analysis (which I like very much, ramen :D!) and I had to kind of vent :/

Yuuri tells Victor his thoughts during their first dance.

I want to thank @thehobbem so, so much for co-writing the dialogue! She spent hours going through metas and crafting this line-by-line with me. Yuuri was much harder to write for than Victor and I couldn’t have done it without her tireless work. ;u; I also want to thank @teasidesketches for doing final revisions despite not being in the fandom. You two are the best. <3

I also want to dedicate this to @solfegefaerie for being the first one to give me the idea of writing Yuuri’s vows. They’re not vows this time, but I thought this was suiting. :) 

If you can, you should read this while listening to “Yuri on Ice.” I matched the flow of the comic to that of the song, hence the tribute to the representation of Yuuri as the lone piano until Victor comes into his life as the violin (in case you were wondering about the sudden Music AU thrown in the middle there). 

Pair comic to Victor’s Vows.

My perfect day.

The Signs Falling/Being in Love

Aries: Appetite Loss - All you think about is him or her. Producing more dopamine, you feel little need for food or other basic necessities while floating through each day on a cloud of hope.  

Taurus: Abandon Regular Routines - You may abandon your work or your responsibilities.  Your thoughts and actions become devoted to your love interest.

Gemini: Fresh Complexion - You feel different and it shows. Others might catch you smiling or blushing for no apparent reasons..

She stopped midway, sighed softly, and said:
I believe that there is no such thing as a coincidence. Every encounter happens for a reason. But I don’t think that it’s as simple as a blessing or a lesson. With some people, it’s a little bit of both. Their lives cross yours once and leave you speechless wondering about them for the rest of your life. Did meeting them make you better, or worse? You never know. But one thing is certain: that you come out of it different from before.

The “real” viktor nikiforov by thishasbeencary, Teen, 3.6k (WIP)
So, fine, maybe Yuuri’s a little bored and lonely when he likes a dating profile claiming to be Viktor Nikiforov. And, maybe, he’s a little pathetic when he gets excited when the account messages him almost immediately after. And, he’s definitely stupid for falling in love with someone pretending to be his idol, but he can’t help it. It’s not like it’s the real Viktor Nikiforov, anyway. He knows someone is catfishing him, but he still falls ridiculously in love.

Viktor understood loneliness, maybe not to the amount that the man who was mourning his dead pokemon, but he knew loneliness like an old friend. Being at the top had its disadvantages. The bespectacled man was somewhat similar to him. That is until, he saw the man giving orders to his precious Makkachin and Makkachin actually obeying him. There might be more to Yuuri Katsuki than he thought.

Remembering Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin on his birthday.

It is not reality that matters in a film but what the imagination can make of it.
