We’re betting that right now, some kid is having a nightmare in which they keep growing more and more teeth, endless rows of them, and the dentist has to keep twisting them out of their skull over and over again until the end of time.
With that in mind, allow us to introduce you to Ashik Gavai. Having suffered from a swollen jaw and severe pain for 18 months, Gavai, a 17-year-old student in India, finally gained access to the dental department at Mumbai’s JJ Hospital. His father was worried that his jaw pain was cancer, and technically he was right, but this particular cancer was teeth. Over 200 freaking teeth, all jammed in his mouth like he was trying to smuggle several sets of dentures through an airport security checkpoint.
“Wait a minute, Cracked,” you might be saying, “I’m no mouth bone doctor, but don’t humans normally have, like, 32 teeth?” Generally, yes. However, Gavai suffered from a rare non-malignant dental tumor known in scientific terms as a “composite odontoma,” and in layman’s terms as “a horror movie curse that turns your mouth into a tooth fountain.”
As you can probably assume, Gavai’s smackers were tightly packed, so dentists were unable to reach the extra teeth with contemporary dental tools. So, tearing a page out of our collective nightmare diary, they began the operation by chipping away at Gavai’s jaw with a hammer and chisel.
“I hope we will be forever ‘representatives’ of girl groups.”
If you were to choose the most critical moment in SNSD’s 10 years, it would be Jessica’s withdrawal. We wonder if that incident made SNSD even stronger. Like a riddle, Sooyoung recited a famous dialogue from a popular drama.
“I liked all of the days we were together. Because the days were good, and because the days were not good, and because the days were just enough….
Choi Sooyoung interview with Sports Dongs (trans by SonexStella
I rewatched Jungkook's little serenade for Jimin in the car at least ten times and it nearly got me to tears how sweet and gentle he was and I just.. (with Sajeon's explanation of the song) imagine Jungkook, after completely having lost touch with Jimin after high school, slowly growing apart during college, they meet again. And he isn't sure if they can get back to how they were before, if it can be that easy with someone again. But surprisingly it feels normal, like they'd only spent a week(1)
apart instead of years. They meet nearly weekly, always during the day and Jungkook is unsure how to tell Jimin his story of how he has a daughter, and how her mother wasn’t able to take care of her so he now has full custody. But he does. The one time they’re able to meet in the evening, when the babysitter’s at home, he tells Jimin everything. He tells him how much they love their daughter, how the mother fell ill, but despite that still tries to make an effort and stay in touch, even for (2)
a tiny bit. How they fell in love, and out of love all the same. How he feels like it’s unfair to his daughter who deserves the entire world, because he’s unfit, because he can’t spend time with her like a good dad should. How often he comes home, greeted by the babysitter and with his daughter already asleep. How it hurts him, and he’s sure it hurts her too. Revealing a part of himself he preferred to keep hidden. But Jimin is as kind and understanding as he had been when they were still (3)
inseparable high school kids. Knows just the right words to say to make Jungkook feel at ease again. To make him feel like he IS doing doing a good job. “You work so hard Jungkook, it’s okay. You sound like you’d carry the whole world on your back if that meant that she’s happy. Aren’t you doing your best? You’re only one person Jungkook-ah, she knows you love her.” Jimin squeezes his hand he hadn’t known he grabbed. “You know what.. I’m actually.. not a busy person. Let me help you take (4)
care of her, okay?” and that isn’t really as much of a question as it is a statement. [idk where I was going with this but I had this one scene in my mind when I watched that serenade->] With Jimin’s help, Jungkook finally feels like he’s doing well. For once he’s able to properly spend a whole day with his daughter (together with Jimin). They went to the park and played all day, running around, laughing a lot, actually have a beautiful picknick lunch they prepared together. After dinner (5)
Jimin offers to clean up the dishes, so Jungkook can spend some more time with his daughter. And the sweet child is already yawning as the toddles towards the living room, the aftermath of an energetic and fun day. When Jimin gets back to join them in the, he’s stunned and awed. In the warm light of the setting sun Jungkook is holding his daughter in his arms, who’s on the verge of sleeping, her head nicely tucked underneath her father’s chin. They’re lightly swaying around, both of their (6)
their eyes closed. Jimin doesn’t dare to speak, to make any sound, as Jungkook sings, “After taking of my uniform.. I met you for the first time~” they both smile, Jungkook and Jimin. One happy that he feels so much at home in someone else’s house, the other happy that he finally feels like he’s forming a wholesome family. [guess who tried to put this in max. 2 asks.. I was especially thinking about that last scene :) get well soon Sam! ilu]
well set me on fire and step on my face, it will hurt less :)
this is so pure and beautiful and I need a long ass one shot of this AU bc i wanna see them fall in love, share intimate moments and enjoy life as it goes and comes….
thanks for this Liza, you always know what to do to make me smile again. I love youuuuuuuuuuuuu
So, I live in Florida, used to live in NY, and for the past few days it’s been up in the air as to whether or not my two friends would be coming to visit, because one of their dogs is sick, but THEY ARE COMING, so…what does that mean for you lovelies?
It means that from the 23-27, you will be reading mainly one-shots and not fic updates for The Old and The New and Becoming Real. From the 23-26, all of the piece, 2 a day, will be one shot requests, and then MONDAY NIGHT, the 27th, at 8 PM and 9 PM EST, a new piece of The Old and The New and Becoming Real will be up.
Once my friends leave (the 27th at night), the fics will be back to their regularly schedule program.
This has been an announcement from your lowly neighborhood fanfic writer. :)
THE OLD AND THE NEW AND BECOMING REAL WILL RESUME AS NORMAL ON MARCH 27, 2017!
Thank you for your patience and I hope you’ll stay tuned!
