Well, this show is coming to an end and I couldn’t be sadder. I enjoyed (almost) every little clip and update. I’ve never done this, but I think there’s a first time for everything.
First of all I want to thank that anon who motivated me to watch Skam. I’d been seeing some gifs of the show in my tl for a while, but I never really started watching it because I thought it was the same as most teen shows. But that message was what made me move Skam from ‘Shows to watch when I have time’ list to ‘Bingewatching even though you have finals’ list.
I want to thank Julie for creating this beautiful world. Her idea is so original and realistic that it just seems we’re watching a documentary on Norwegian teens.
I want to thank every crew member involved, because Mari and her updates killed me everytime, Susanna made me fall in love with everything they wore, the soundtrack was amazing, scenaries where breathtaking, and so on.
I want to thank all the actors for playing those amazing characters with such genuineness and caring. They’re all so young and most of them have little experience, and yet, they did amazing (proud mamma).
I also want to thank everyone that has made laugh, smile or just enjoy a little more the show. And that is you, Skamily, with your funny edits, your cute and amazing edits, your ramblings or just your reactions, you helped me get through the bad clips and love even more the good ones.
And last, but definitely not least (it’s the real reason I decided to write this), I want to thank every single one of you that spent his/her time translating every clip, every message, every instagram post and every interview. Without you Skam wouldn’t be what it is today, you were the ones who made it possible for us foreigners to watch it and you deserve the world.
Without receiving anything in return, you decided to reupload all the clips 5 minutes after they were upload in the page, and that is incredible. Believe me when I say I’m thankful, because it’s true. I’m thankful that you are such good people that decided to help others (people that you don’t know, btw) in their way to happiness.
I don’t think you realize how important it is what you did. Thanks to you, some people were able to watch this show and that helped them through the hard times in their lives, they felt represented, they saw that they’re not alone in their problems and that someone is going through the same (I know it doesn’t really solve youre problems, but it makes you feel a little better),…; overall, they were happier than they were before they knew the existence of Skam
SO, TUSEN TAKK TO EVERY ONE OF YOU THAT MADE THIS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYBODY, YOU’RE AWESOME.
If you keep doing what you’re doing this world would be a little better, I’m sure.
I’m tagging every character because I think these people deserve to know how thankful we are. Sorry if it seems like I’m spaming the tags.
You can fight me on that, but Makki and Mattsun are not just two meme lords with poker faces, but the best friends ever and they care so much for their team and friends they would do anything to make them happy. They need more love
I won’t fight you on this, never ever, wonderful anon!! Makki and Mattsun are more than meme lords to me. They are the very best friends to my precious boys and great senpais in the seijou team. To me, they’ve practically adopted Iwa and Oiks as their kids. Believe me that Makki would be there nagging on Oikawa for acting stupid, Mattsun would physically drag Iwa and tuck him in bed when Iwa works too much.
I don’t know if it’s just me, while Mattsun is usually portrayed with a poker face, I feel like he’d be the first one tearing up when IwaOi finally propose or at IwaOi’s wedding. He’s the inwardly sentimental big brother in the family.
This chart demonstrates the amount of completed SoonSeok (Red), SoonHoon (Blue), and SoonWoo (Green) fics, by date (measured in months). Not shown is that SoonHoon has the most with 282 fics, SoonWoo with 108, and SoonSeok with 99. *Disclaimer, fics with major character death, poor english, written in 1st or 2nd pov, etc…not included*
As you can see, SoonHoon is easily the most popular that is constantly written. Within the past year there has been a steady uptick in the amount of SoonWoo fics, to the point where in the past half year, it has consistently overtaken the amount of SoonSeok fics except for this past month, and even then SoonSeok only had one more than SoonWoo. The only reason why is due to the SoonSeok fic fest that occurred, otherwise the amount of SoonWoo fics would probably crush the amount of SoonSeok…
Above is chart that takes a closer look at the amount of fics over a weekly basis between SoonSeok and SoonWoo. Again, it is pretty obvious that SoonWoo has, for whatever reason, become a popular ship to write as demonstrated by the large amount as well as more consistent amount of fics that have shown up. In fact, this is how the chart would look like if the SoonSeok fest fics were taken away…and it’s just outright sad.
For further comparison, lets take a look at all major/major side ships.
As you can see in the chart above, SoonSeok ranks the lowest in amount of fics, and that’s against major AND secondary ships. (My definition of major is basically what was big originally and secondary are ships that came around after debut). It’s really sad and its honestly been eating away at me because 1. even if you don’t ship soonseok, there’s no way you can deny the chemistry they have with each other???? its like the same thing with verkwan. there’s clearly a special connection between them, no ifs ands or buts. 2. the fact that soonseok is considered seokmin’s biggest ship almost makes 1000x more sad just cause it basically means people don’t appreciate seokmin…at all. i’ve said this once ive this a thousand times. APPRECIATE THE SUN! I will never understand how people can just overlook him. he is beautiful, talented, funny, amazing, amongst many many other things and it hurts me so much to know that not only is he not appreciated content wise (there’s rarely ever gifs of him and if there is, many times they get ignored), there’s barely any fics for him too. like…why…what did the pure and precious sun ever do to hurt you…i mean look at him??? he is all that is pure and good??
anyways…the whole point of this post is for me to vent and rant about how soonseok and seokmin don’t get enough love BUT at the same time i definitely am not intending to push the ship into your face (which i’m probably doing a terrible job of it…) i guess it kind of just infuriates me that there are so many moments between soonyoung and seokmin that are so…idk how to even put it into words…just…LOVE that you’d think more people would write ab out them?? but no…they write about soonhoon (which quite honestly, does not have that many moments, especially in comparison to soonseok, and even when they do, its not like that same level of chemistry but thats just the bias in me speaking) or now soonwoo (which i get that they’ve been having some frenemy moments lately but i feel like thats how friends usually act with each other? like i tease my friends all the time so…yet again just a brotp although personally for me its become a notp because of all the negative feelings ive been having)
tbh its gotten to the point where i dont want to read any soonhoon or soonwoo (but i kinda have to because my fic rec blog and i cant be biased although i still am sometimes) this probably wouldnt be a problem if there were an equal or more amount of soonseok fics that came out with these but im just so…done. and this problem really only even lies within the international fandom cause i know for a fact that seoksoon is fucking huge in the kfandom and i honestly wish i was fluent in korean just so i could get more content.
i think i’ve reached the point where, even tho i swear i cant write for my life, i kinda wanna start writing just for soonseok. just so that my babies can get some appreciation. so i guess ill end this huge ass rant with a question to yall who even made it this far (bless). do you have any prompts you would like to see? i cant promise that the story will be any good (if i even write it) but i would love to get my “creative” juices flowing (here’s a hint, they’re nonexsistent rip). and again thanks for reading this far!
What? No hugs and tears for an old friend? Not like i’d expect it though. If you’d shouted “Fang!” and hugged me i mighta had a heart attack on the spot. But i’m glad to see you’re still the same.It’s been a long time,after all…
I’m watching you Merlin Memory Month Prompt Day 2: Path II - Watching you Whenever Morgana loses control about her magic she shatters the windows in her chambers. Merlin on the other hand tends to lose control whenever Arthur tries to come closer to him and he blows up the whole castle… every time.
The Beast screamed inside Vimes. It screamed that no one would blame him for doing the hangman out of ten dollars and free breakfast. Yeah, and you could say a swift stab now was the merciful solution, because every hangman knew you could go the easy way or the hard way and there wasn’t one in the country that’d let something like Carcer go the easy way. The gods knew the man deserved it…
…but young Sam was watching him, across thirty years.
When we break down, it all breaks down. That’s just how it works. You can bend it, and if you make it hot enough you can bend it in a circle, but you can’t break it. When you break it, it all breaks down until there’s nothing unbroken. It starts here and now.
