How do you think the 17 members would handle a situation where one or more members (possibly even all of the members) ended up falling for the same girl? xx
I think that as soon as they realized what was going on, they’d all try to stay very calm about it. At first, they might agree to just stay away from the girl altogether, but that’d probably get awkward quickly, especially if the girl was their friend. In the end, they’d agree that it was her choice to make, not theirs.
The members that would try to stay reserved and reduce contact with the girl until she made her decision would be Woozi, Dino, and Joshua.
The members that would go out of their way to flirt with the girl, in hopes of influencing her decision would be S.Coups, Mingyu, and Jun.
The members that wouldn’t really change the way they acted around the girl, in an attempt not to let her notice that multiple members liked her (until, of course, she naturally decides who she likes best) would be Hoshi, DK, Jeonghan and The8.
And the members that would subconsciously get shyer around the girl (not as a result of the fact that multiple members liked her but as a natural way of dealing with a crush) would be Wonwoo, Seungkwan, and Vernon.
Hey there. Is it possible to get some more Gamer Dean? Or a Gamer Sam (With him MMO's would be awesome)? Read the Gamer Dean Series a 3rd or 4th time now. Probably reader and Sam or Dean meeting in a game, she is a hunter as well and they really like each other and are desperate to meet, but can't since they are afraid to drag the other one into the hunter life. Then they meet in a bar before a hunt and idk... she tells him about this "hot guy I've got to work with now"?
I will add it to my list. I actually have an idea (based on a friend I used to have!).
Mtl to like someone that is not open about their feelings?
Let me just say that none of the members would dislike dating someone like this. They’d understand that lots of people find it hard to say what they really mean, and they wouldn’t try to get their significant other to talk about their feelings if they didn’t want to. However, they would also find it inconvenient if their significant other really didn’t know how to express their opinions or what they wanted, as communication within the relationship would become quite difficult. The members toward the top of the list would be very patient with someone bottled up, and would love the feeling of passion when their partner did express genuine love. The members toward the bottom of the list would be patient as well, but they’d try to get their significant other to open up more, as they’d feel that locking up one’s emotions could be very unhealthy. But overall, if the members really liked this person, they would learn to deal with and appreciate their emotional boundaries.
Enjolras: just that bit nicer and more expensive than those around him. kind of like he’s starring in a film of his own life. Everything is obviously very classic and well-made. Then there are, of course, the Infernal Red Converse. He’ll be buried in those things.
Courfeyrac: Label queen. Everything he owns is from Superdry and Nike. He’s also got this ancient threadbare grey jumper that has become known as the ‘transient sweatshirt of anguish’ among his friends. He has no idea how it came to be in his possession but it is the warmest and comfiest item of clothing that will ever grace your body and everyone nicks it off him when they’re sad.
Combeferre: Is almost always in a state of poverty because he spends the majority of his money on clothes and shoes (also books). He’s obsessed with buying shoes and blazers of every calibre: brogues, vans, desert boots, doc martens, herringbone blazers, tweed jackets, elbow-patched jackets, velvet blazers, old school blazers from charity shops - you name it. He’s easily the most fashionable out of all of them, though you might not immediately think it.
Bahorel: The kind of madman that goes out mid-january in a vest and shorts. Lives primarily in workout clothes: tracksuits, t-shirts, basketball shorts, trainers. For him formal wear is a pair of jeans.
Feuilly: Not really interested in clothes because everything he buys gets ruined and he’s not exactly rolling in cash. He has a standard uniform of a pair of jeans, a polo shirt and a bomber jacket and he rarely deviates.
Eponine: most of her clothes come from charity shops. A lot of ill-fitting sun dresses and old-lady tea dresses that she wears with big knitted cardigans and a pair of clompy old black work boots and this huge oversize man’s overcoat because she found it for 25 euro and it’s warm as fuck.
Grantaire: He gets mistaken for a tramp at least twice a week - it’s pretty tragic. He’s a layers kind of guy.
Gavroche: He’s going through his ‘skater’ phase.
Montparnasse: Image is very important to him. Everything he wears is stupidly expensive and clearly well-made purely because he can (even his underwear probably costs more than your weekly rent). 90% of his wardrobe is black, partially because it doesn’t show up the blood and doesn’t make him conspicuous but mainly because it makes him look pretty hot. Occasionally he’ll throw in a printed shirt or the lining of his jacket will be red or he’ll wear coloured socks - but that’s it. He likes leather or harrington jackets and shirts always buttoned to the collar and he rolls up the legs of his skinny jeans so you can see his socks and doc marten oxfords.
Jehan: Most people are genuinely shocked when he tells them he isn’t colourblind. He likes textures and layers and patterns and bold colours.
Cosette: She finds trousers in general (but specifically jeans) to be incredibly chafing and uncomfortable. You’ll always find her in some sort of sun dress or skirt and blouse - and she loves her big knitted cardigans. She also doesn’t own any trainers, purely because she has no need for them - little black boots or gladiator sandals for her. She likes bright colours and pastels purely for the way they stand out on her skin.
Marius: A bit old fashioned. A lot of collared shirts and pullovers of every calibre (like a grandfather for christ sake) and he’s never worn a pair of trainers aside from for sporting events in his life. He never even used to wear jeans, until he was bullied out of his chinos by Cosette who took one look and told him they were absolutely tragic.
Bossuet: Big plaid fan, he’s also going through his ‘skate phase’ - that started six years ago. He hasn’t yet had the good sense to grow out of it. Musichetta’s trying, but it’s not quite working.
Joly: If you ever see Joly and he’s not in a stripy t-shirt it’s not really Joly and you should run the fuck away. I also have three other words for you: denim on denim *shudders* (‘but my jeans are black and my jacket is blue, they’re entirely different!’ Oh Joly)
Musichetta: Highly impractical considering she works in a coffee shop - but she doesn’t give two shits. She likes dressing up and feeling rad about herself. She wears a lot of big poofy 50s a-line skirts and neck scarfs and sky-scraper red heels that match her bright red lips and big floppy hats or bandanas in her hair and funeral veils (purely for the drama) and velvet coats and faux-fur stoles because fuck you that’s why.
Dear White People with "Innocent Questions” for Black Bloggers:
I’ve been seeing a lot of, “Well why don’t you just explain it nicely to me instead of dragging me on social media?” Usually followed by something like, “I’m just a kid…I didn’t know any better.” Or, “You really aren’t helping your case by being so angry.”
Look, those excuses all have serious problems, and I know I’m not the first one to say all this, but apparently it still needs to be repeated…
1. No one owes you a “nice” explanation
Certainly not black people who are constantly blogging about and explaining racism & anti-Blackness repeatedly on their blogs, only to have some person who’s too lazy to look through the blog where their “innocent” question has probably been answered dozens of times.
2. Does the blogger even know you?
Look, if you don’t interact with me, but you saw a post and you just had to barge into my asks insisting that your “innocent” question be answered, well then what exactly did you think you’re going to get? Hopefully you wouldn’t walk up to a perfect stranger on the street and demand that they drop everything they’re doing to “explain” something as complex as racism until you decide that you’re fully satisfied with their answer, would you? It’s no different on social media.
I can guarantee you 1,000 percent that black bloggers get white people (who have never ever talked to us before) barging into our ask boxes demanding answers to questions that, if you only took a few seconds to search through the tags, would be answered. This is a regular, almost daily occurrence. And that’s giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you’re not a racist troll, playing another game of devil’s advocate.
And no, we are not obligated to waste even more time by researching your blog to verify your age (which may or may not be listed in a bio anyway), nor are we required to search through pages of your blog just to be sure you’re not someone who authors racist posts every now and then.
If YOU don’t have the time to be bothered with looking through my blog’s hashtags or my homepage for the answer to something I’ve blogged about dozens of times before, then why do you expect me to waste MY time looking through your blog to tailor an answer specifically to you?
You came to my asks, so the onus is on you to be considerate, thoughtful and respectful.
3. But it was just a kid who really didn’t know any better
Okay, I used to have mixed feelings on this one, and this is just ME specifically…sometimes I have tee’d off on someone only to later find out that they’re a 13 or 14 year old white kid, and I admit I’ve momentarily felt a little badly for them.
But then I remember a few things: like how there are tons & tons of deeply racist 13 and 14-year-olds on social media. And I don’t always have the time or motivation to sort through them. And I remember that I’m not Google, and I’m literally not getting paid to answer a stream of unending questions, and I remember it’s not always my job to take every racist by the hand and always, always, always “be nice” in the hopes that maybe, possibly, perhaps, if I word my response just perfectly, and if I tip toe around the subject, and if I’m extra extra careful not to accidentally offend this complete stranger, well then maybe, just maaaybe I’ll be the one to turn them into a non-racist.
And I also remember that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with me getting upset with strangers who rudely (or even nicely, for the millionth time this week) make demands of my time; and I remember that white people really dO need to understand that “sometimes anger is a part of learning about racism.”
And I remember how, when they barged into my asks, they didn’t bother prefacing their question with, “Hi, I’m only a kid who doesn’t really know any better, but I have a question”…so excuse me if I’m not terribly interested in hearing about their age afterwards.
So yeah, regardless of your age, if you’re non-black or white, and you have a question for a black blogger, be polite. If we don’t know each other, act accordingly. Don’t demand an answer, don’t tone police, and don’t show up in my asks with even the slightest attitude.
Chances are you’re asking a question I’ve answered or blogged about dozens of times before, so try looking to see if I’ve already answered your question —and yes, that might mean expending YOUR time to actually look through my blog.
4. You can still be a troll without meaning to be one
And - this last part is important - even when it isn’t someone intentionally trolling black people, I have sometimes gone back and looked through the OP’s blog, and often I see that while they might have one or two pictures of Beyoncé or the latest black twitter meme, the person has never once blogged about #BlackLivesMatter nor anything remotely associated with anti-racism or Black Civil Rights. But they’re still trying to “correct” something I’ve said with a whitewashed, “we’re all human” version of what they’ve been brainwashed into believing.
See, what frequently happens is that a white person was scrolling along and accidentally came across a post that shook their white fragility, and instead of reflecting on what they just read, they reflexively lash out with “innocent questions” that are really defensive statements. It’s passive aggressive. And most black people have been fielding those types of questions long enough to recognize that they’re actually micro-aggressions masquerading as an innocent question.
Even nice people can be triggered into going off, so don’t act surprised if you get clap back from an allegedly ”innocent” question.
So that’s another reason why it perturbs me when I see people insisting that black people must always respond with unending patience, and play the role of Morpheus, and waste our time treating every misinformed white person “nicely” because they just might be “the one.” That’s exhausting.
So in conclusion, instead of going around preaching that no matter what, we should be nicer to anyone with a question, I suggest that your time would be better spent by telling these (ostensibly) CluelessWhitePeople™ that there’s a right and wrong way to ask complete strangers a genuine question, and if they ask respectfully & without pushing a hidden agenda, they’re more likely to get a respectful answer. And remind them that Google is a free service.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad we had this talk.
