beginning of a very good friendship

anonymous asked:

Cute things: imagine Harry had made you watch that movie at the beginning of your friendship. And you tried to be chill during the movie b/c u don't really know him yet, but now it's 2 am and you still can't fall asleep b/c you're terrified. And you call him and after a few rings are met with a very groggy scratchy voice saying, "hello. What's going on, love? Are you good?" And you respond with, "no you fucker, I'm not good because of that terrifying movie you made me watch." And he chuckles

Softly to himself and you can hear the sleep in his voice as you say, “Stop laughing!!! It’s not fair that you made me watch this movie and now I’m hiding in my blankets absolutely terrified while little mister sleeping beauty gets a solid night of rest!” And he laughs some more and you hear some shuffling as he asks, “are you scared to be alone right now?” And you answer, “obviously!” And he responds, “okay, I’m putting on pants and then I’ll head back ova and keep yeh company for the night.”

I didn’t realize there would be two parts omg I’m sorry

This is the thing: When you hit 28 or 30, everything begins to divide. You can see very clearly two kinds of people. On one side, people who have used their 20s to learn and grow, to find themselves and their dreams, people who know what works and what doesn’t, who have pushed through to become real live adults. Then there’s the other kind, who are hanging onto college, or high school even, with all their might. They’ve stayed in jobs they hate, because they’re too scared to get another one. They’ve stayed with men or women who are good but not great, because they don’t want to be lonely. They mean to develop intimate friendships, they mean to stop drinking like life is one big frat party. But they don’t do those things, so they live in an extended adolescence, no closer to adulthood than when they graduated. Don’t be like that. Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal.

Ask yourself some good questions like: “Am I proud of the life I’m living? What have I tried this month? Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? Is there any brokenness in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?”

Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love, and with people who believe. Life is a grand adventure. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Ahhh. How I love this drama. Weightlifting Fairy is the Mary Poppins of kdramas: Practically Perfect in Every Way.

If you have not watched this gem of a drama (ahem, my fellow admins, I am looking at you) you should. Afterwards if you want to immediately rewatch it…well, I wouldn’t blame you.

Weightlifting Fairy stars Lee Sung Kyung as Kim Bok Joo, a weightlifting college student with a bright personality. Nam Joo Hyuk (who is quickly becoming one of my favorite younger actors) plays Jung Joon Hyung a collegiate swimmer who is very good, but has some issues with false starts in competitions. They meet and soon realize that they went to elementary school together.  A friendship begins…

What do I like about Weightlifting Fairy?

Friendships: Kim Bok Joo is one third of a trio of weightlifting besties. They are SWAG. Jung Joon Hyung is BFFs with his roommate and fellow swimmer. I love that Bok Joo and Joon Hyung consistently make their friendships a priority.

Humor: In the same vein that the Reply series has the goat sound effect, Weightlifting Fairy has the “WHAT?!” sound effect. I have found myself waiting for it in other dramas (most recently, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.) 

Chemistry: Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk (who were both also in Cheese In The Trap) have wonderful onscreen chemistry. They have moved into one of the top spots for my favorite kdrama couples. But it’s not just them. The entire cast is great.

Plot: It doesn’t drag. It doesn’t frustrate you for multiple episodes over an easily solved miscommunication.  It doesn’t go off on rabbit trails. It’s well written, cute, and honestly pretty true to life in the way the relationships progress.

Normally, I’d have a section on things I didn’t like or what I felt could be better. But I don’t really have anything negative to say about Weightlifting Fairy………….nope. I got nuthin.

Weightlifting Fairy is a story of family, friendship, and first love. And futures. It is heartwarming and adorable and a host of other good adjectives. You will not regret watching Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. And bonus, it’s complete, so you can marathon it!

Mother… I never meant for this to happen. I just wanted that boy’s life back. And now I’ve got another chance at life, too. So I’m gonna take it. The hardest thing is losing you and Gabrielle. But it makes it easier just knowing that in this life I never shamed you. And Gabrielle never left her family and I never led Lyceus to die in battle. And I know that’s what you would have wanted. It’s like Xena, Warrior Princess never existed! The world’s a better place without her.

Only an actress of the very highest caliber could make the titular mouthful of a line, “It’s like Xena, Warrior Princess never existed!” feel like a genuine outpouring of emotion. Good thing Lucy Lawless is the greatest. This soliloquy, performed in a single take, is one of the most moving moments in the entire series. It has an extra, significant dimension in that it echoes Xena and Gabrielle’s conversation in Lyceus’s tomb in 1x01, where Gabrielle assures Xena that she’s not alone – arguably the moment where their friendship truly begins.

Livia Myles snorted with disdain at the red circle surrounding the date before tearing her eyes away from the calendar hanging on the wall. Tomorrow was February the fourteenth. Who cared? Everyone on the WWE roster except her, apparently. She used to care, once upon a time. She used to get all giddy with excitement too whenever that date came around. But that was when everything was going right for her.

What a difference one year made.

It felt like it was just yesterday when she was celebrating Valentine’s Day with her fiancé and making plans for their summer wedding. He would soon dump her and run off with another woman a month before they were to marry. Apparently he just couldn’t “keep up with her busy work schedule”. Then, as if she hadn’t been humiliated enough, he proceeded to publicly and unapologetically flaunt his new trophy on every social media platform there was to offer. Her eyes welled up with tears at the thought of that asshole and everything she had sacrificed for his ungrateful ass.

Some thoughts about Malec relationship

The last episode was literally disappointing for most of Malec fans. For me, I thought that Malec has had a good communication and they’ve been written in the best way possible but I literally disappointed at the end of the episode. It was rushed and written so carelessly. There were unanswered questions and Alec was really out of the character. It looked like Alec didn’t care about what Magnus wants, even if we all know how much Alec cares about Magnus and he would never force him for anything Magnus doesn’t want. A couple of days ago, writers apologised for their mistakes. We should realise that they’ve always been thoughtful and careful about Malec and I believe that they can fix their mistake. Also Magnus and Alec have a healthy relationship from the very beginning and Malec is really a great representation. Although they’re from totally different worlds, they understand and respect each other so much. And besides, Harry and Matt have perfect chemistry, friendship and deep understanding about how valuable Malec relationship for so many people which makes me really happy because it affects Malec in a good way. Honestly, I really want them to win an award, especially The Glaad Award. Because both Malec relationship and Matt and Harry’s efforts deserve to win awards. Let’s support them as much as we can.

Squalo’s and Harumi’s oddish friendship [Part 3]

Mafia school AU: adulthood time

Squalo is interested in his former school mate Kurogane who’s also Harumi’s best friend. As a truly good soul and supportive friend Harumi sets them up if she gets the chance so Squalo tries to return her a favour as often as possible.

Yeah, it escalated. Since Harumi is a kindhearted and loving person she got along with Nono very well, even though it was a very awkward start at the beginning. In the end everything went out good and Kurogane managed to get a date with Xanxus for Harumi:

fusion cuisine

- of Yukihira Souma and Takumi Aldini and their absurdly simple (yet complex) relationship -

!! Please note that this meta has manga spoilers !!

The thing about Souma and Takumi’s relationship is, how incredibly sturdy it is despite them hardly ever having moments together to define it unlike with other characters they too share strong relations with - examples being Megumi for Souma, some the instances being the Shokugeki against Shinomiya during training camp and the Moonlight Banquet Arc. Isami for Takumi, the instances being the Hinako’s challenge during Training Camp and the Autumn Elections Preliminaries.  There is no arc or contest where they work together to showcase their strong bonds. Their relationship doesn’t even have a setup from the past. They aren’t childhood friends, and have never even met each other until Training Camp. And yet, one gets the feeling that they’ve known each other for a lifetime, or have been friends for at least years to be so comfortable around each other whenever they interact.

Most of their relationship is defined, developed and shown mainly when the other is not around, or by a third party. In fact, their relationship is established so quietly, so indirectly that Souma and Takumi themselves hardly ever acknowledge their relationship directly.

Which leads to the question - what are they, really?

I was tagged by  @saltquizzy to fill this meme, thank you! it has been fun :D 

Just for readability: the timeline goes from Fael’s portrait (beginning of Inquisition) to the companion’s (end of trespasser). I mostly considered his point of view here rather than the relationship as a whole.
Obviously, the love bar includes best friends and respect u.u 

A few notes: 
As you can see, Fael’s relationship with Sera is stormy. First impression wasn’t very good, but then they rather quickly bonded. After the events at the Temple of Mythal though, they fell apart for a while, but with time they regained a strong - if odd - friendship. 

Blackwall is another that needs explaination. At the beginning, Fael respects and trusts him as a Grey Warden, and as a man. They talk a lot, and while often disagree, Blackwall gives him many things to ponder over that help him grow as a person. After Revelations he gives him another chance as Thom Rainier, but finds it difficult to trust him again (a bit hypocritically maybe). Still, Thom’s efforts in rebuilding his own life earn him back Fael’s respect, but not a close friendship. The grey here is more neutrality than dislike. 

Also yes, he had a crush on Cullen. :P

Making “Popular” Friends 101

Ok, so I keep hearing from people I know and seeing posts about how hard it is to make friends, especially popular creators and artist ones. How when you do, they are not what you thought they would be. As a person who has been at both ends of this spectrum, I have had some less then stellar experiences with popular blogs and I have had a lot of less then stellar experiences with people trying to befriend me, I would like to share some tips.

Here are 16 pointers to keep in mind when making friends with artists and/or other popular creators.

1: Realize that if your goal for befriending them is simply BECAUSE they are popular, then you are doing it for the wrong reason. There is a huge difference between, “they have a lot of followers I need to know them,” and “I really like what they do, but they seem to have a lot of followers.”

2: If your goal for talking to them is to get something out of them, whether it is art, a ship, public attention, self validation, or anything of the like, then you are still doing it wrong. They are people, not dispensers, respect that. As their own person they reserve the right to choose who they give their resources to.

3: Understand that you are NOT the only person trying to get their attention at any given point. You are one among many who may be trying to befriend them. It is a lot for a person to take in, and they simply do not have the time nor energy to build deep personable relationships with every person they talk to.

4: Actually contacting them. Use only means they provide to contact them. Do not get their skype, discord, or any other contact info from a second hand party. This will make them incredibly uncomfortable and feel like you are invading their space. If there is no way to privately contact them, then make an effort to leave kind replies and like their work. Eventually this will stick in their mind and you will become a positive interaction for when you can contact them.

5: So you have their contact now and the opportunity to talk to them. Don’t push it. You only barely met this person, you have to build a standing with them and make an impression. Do not expect a deep personal connection with them simply because you small talked a couple times. Friendship takes time and dedication.

6: Realize that at the beginning, the desire for a deep friendship is purely one-sided, and that’s OK! You know how cool you are, they don’t. If you get angry that they are not as into talking to you as you are with them, then you need to take a step back.

7. Be yourself, but the best part of yourself. It is ok to express yourself and be strange or eccentric. It is not ok to expect someone to right off the bat accept all your flaws just because. It takes time to see past a persons flaws, let them get to know your good side before expecting them to tolerate your bad side.

8: Be aware that not all personality types click. You may be strongly drawn to this person, but on their end they may not feel that friendship spark. They have a right to choose their close friends based on what makes them happy, just as much as you do. However this does not mean they don’t like you, and don’t welcome you messaging them.

9: Be prepared for different preferences, beliefs, desires, and so on. Friends can and will have differences between them. This does not mean you have to change, or they have to. It simply means being tolerant and understanding. Do not try to force them to take on your views in order to be your friend.

10: Your friendship can not be measured by the “amount” or “quality” of your interactions. There are a lot of people who have deep long conversations with even casual friends, and then there are some who barely talk to anyone, but still consider them their closest friends. It’s ok to worry if you are in good standing. Do not, however, assume your position with someone, but share in open conversation to know where you stand with them.

11: Do not play mind games. Maybe things are fading, or were not very strong to begin with. This is not excuse to play mind games, “testing” the legitimacy of your friendship. The biggest example of such mind games is “they never message me first, so I just won’t message them until they do.” More often then not, you will only be upset by the outcome, or make the person run in fear of a clingy relationship.

12: Do not cling for dear life. The harder you hold something the more you make it choke and want to run from you. These are people, they want their freedom to talk to who they want, do what they want, and spend their time how they want. Being upset because they do not devote that time to you is harmful to your emotions, and can become harmful to this person you want to be your friend. Sit back, relax a little and let things happen naturally.

13: So you are now friends with this person. Do not use this as a status symbol for yourself. Whether they are famous or not has nothing to do with you. They got there themselves. Yes, they may help promote you at some point. This does not mean you can brag about your friendship to others, or about what you get from them. This is all around not cool, and will only make your friend feel used like a sort of object.

14: Do not make every little issue into a public matter to guarder sympathy or to pressure the person to do what you want them to. This not only ruins friendships, but destroys trust. Don’t think people are unaware of what you are doing and why, they are not that dumb. More often you will make people completely uninvolved question themselves and only push even more people away. And in all it’s kinda a cruddy thing to do anyways.

15: It might not work out. There is always the possibility that it just won’t work. You tried everything, you pushed forward and darn it they just would not bite. This does not make you a bad friend and this does not make them a bad person. There are billions of people on this planet, we can’t all be friends, that’s life.

16: If it doesn’t work out, do not go on a rampage about how awful the person is just because they could not see you for as cool as you see yourself. This will only make a negative impression about you. Even vague-ing is a bad idea because you will not only ostracize those who you tried to be friends with, but possible current or future friends.

All in all, I hope that this helped to open a few eyes. I’m not trying to pick on anyone, heck I HAVE DONE SOME OF THESE NO-NOS BEFORE. No one is perfect, but we need to keep in mind that people are people no matter their status and should be treated as equals. So happy friend-making!

Soldier- Bucky Barnes


Character: Bucky Barnes

Prompt:

“You’re mine.”

“You need help, damn it. Just let me do the right thing and help you.”

“You don’t know how long I’ve waited for this.”

“Out of everyone you could’ve chosen, why’d you pick me?”

There was something about him. Something about the way he watched me.

Warnings: Brace yourself, kids. The smut is coming! ;) Although it doesn’t happen until the very, very end. I love Bucky and I love this request and once again, had the best time writing it. Enjoy! Send more requests!


I felt his eyes on me the minute I walked into the room, although I would’ve noticed him regardless. There was something about Bucky Barnes that made it impossible not to notice him. Maybe to anyone else, his presence would’ve been nothing more than background noise…despite the fact that he hardly ever seemed to say a word. To me, his presence seemed to take up an entire room. This sad, broken man trapped in the body of a solider. Of a weapon. A machine. This was how I often heard him described, but I knew that wasn’t true.

Ever since Bucky had been taken in by SHEILD, under the watchful eye of Captain Rogers, I saw him for what he truly was. A lost soul. I’d been drawn to him from the very beginning. Intrigued, more than what I knew was good for me. Still, I couldn’t help it. There was something about him. Something about the way he watched me. I wasn’t the only one who was curious. Even now, after months of careful, tentative friendship, he still watched me like he hadn’t quite figured me out yet. The feeling was mutual.

Related to this post about the Shallura AU where they flirt from opposite sides of the war (to the bemusement of their respective superiors).

This was their first formal introduction. That is, as Champion and Princess. But a girl named Allura and a boy named Shiro had met earlier that day, spending hours together touring the city and commiserating about the weight of legacies.

It was not yet obvious to the king or the emperor, as it was merely the beginning of an affectionate friendship, but the two bitter rivals would soon have to contend with the fact that their scions seemed to have very little interest in fighting each other.

DiKa Couple Interview [Analysis]

Hey, it’s me again. Well, here I am to express my opinion/feelings about Kaisoo/Kadi/Dika (as Jongin said himself) couple interview. I want to say firstly that I don’t know them and everything I say it’s based on my observations and you how Kaisoo shippers are delusional, right?. And my English isn’t pretty good, so I’m sorry for any mistakes beforehand.

This obviously contains spoilers of the EXO Second Box. If you didn’t see the DVD or you’re not interested in read any of this just ignore this post. Thank you in advance.


I waited some time to pass before writing this for a reason not only because I’m a lazy person tbh. I know all of Kaisoo shippers out there are still euphoric about their interactions (me included, I smiled with feels at college), but I’ll try to be more rational here and honest as well. And I needed to see the couple interview with my own eyes to have a bigger panoram of the situation.

Okay… First thing I have to say about all of this? It was cute as hell!!!! Where do I start? In general lines, I think this interview shows why Kaisoo is so shippable. They aren’t the skinship type of couple but a lot of people really like them together. Kyungsoo/Jongin know this as well. You can see this when they’re questioned about their couple name. Jongin, joking (you can see his face), answers I-O, but Kyungsoo is all: “I think fans call us KaDi”. They’re not blind, you know. They see the banners with their couple names on concerts and fanmeetings. It could force them to touch each other more or be more lovey dovey or even drift them apart. But they base (if it’s a friendship base or a companionship one, I don’t know) is strong since the beginning, that’s why I don’t think they’re a fake couple/created by SM. And ths interview shows it very well in so many levels! I just love it.

The beginning of the interview is quite interesting because Jongin starts laughing when Kyungsoo bows to the camera. He gives that characteristic laugh that appears on his face only when you see something he thinks that’s super cute as Taeoh or when his niece or his dogs make something lovely. Kyungsoo looks like he is in a good mood too, with a shy smile at first. It may seem silly, but those laughs Jongin gives when he’s near of Kyungsoo are super interesting. That’s because he has the habit of beating everyone when he laughs. EVERYONE. It can be Sehun, Suho, Luhan (miss u forever baby), Baekhyun, Chanyeol … Anyway. Regardless of the person being his hyung or dongsaeng, he does it, like a instinctive action. Everyone, least Kyungsoo.

This can mean several things: respect, fear… Choose what you find most acceptable. For me, this is his way to show how much he cares about Kyungsoo to the point of control a habit just because his hyung doesn’t like it. It may just be afraid to be beaten, of course. But linking it to several other Kaisoo moments, I don’t think he controls himself only because of fear.

Look at how happy they are, I cry. 

I find it interesting when they were asked about what they have in common. I don’t know if they spoke basic things such as they’re being roommates or about their dark skin because they really don’t have much things in common or because this is, somehow, an intimate question. Any of these explanations is acceptable, because if the first one is the correct answer, it shows how two people can be close without having necessarily tastes in common or similar personalities. Jongin is a deep, funny and optimistic person while Kyungsoo is mysterious and more reserved, but the interaction between them just flows in a natural way. There is a click between them, which contines to exist, even with the haters hate. And that’s not something you see in many couples out there, especially inside EXO. It is something worthy of admiration, in my opinion.

Returning to the question about their couple name, I need to say how I love the way they handle it. Kaisoo / Kadi is a popular ship in Korea, but both of them carry the entire interview naturally, without forcing anything. Kyungsoo told about the popular name and Jongin even joked about it because he prefers Dika more for reminding him of Digital Kamera! They seem comfortable, as if being close to each other is the most normal thing in the world. One more reason that makes me think that this couple wasn’t created just for fan service, tbh.

I loved the part where they talk about the start of their friendship! It was super sincere and adorable at the same because Jongin admitted (had no choice) to Kyungsoo that he was scared of him, but after all the misunderstandings between them were explained, Jongin opened himself to Kyungsoo and told about they having coffee together every day. EVERY DAY!

Maybe he overreacted a little (I can’t know about that), but regardless, we all know how much Jongin hates coffee. He has spoken and demonstrated this in many ocasions now.

Thus, how he accepted have coffee with Kyungsoo even if it’s something he hates? And see Kyungsoo stating that he watched Jongin before their friendship start is very interesting too, because it was said at another time that Kyungsoo didn’t look at Jongin when they were standing next to each other.

So, I conclude that Kyungsoo was embarassed of Jongin at first and watched him discretly.  You know when you see the person that calls your attention and you look at her, but when she notices your presence or is near you, you look away? I think it was this was what happened between Kaisoo before they become closer. Not necessarily in a crush way, but maybe in a impressive way. I don’t know. You can interpret this how you want.

A respectful pause to comment a little about Kaisoo talking about their roommate rules and blaming Chanyeol in the process because their room was messy. And Jongin’s whining so much at Kyungsoo, like “It’s Chanyeol’s fault. He’s the messy one, not me.”

The part where they talk about Kyungsoo’s drama is one of my favorites. Really. I really think Jongin haven’t seen the drama at all, maybe only the parts that Kyungsoo appeared and, that’s why Jongin didn’t know the movie’s title. I think Kyungsoo knows it too, but just the fact that Jongin remember what happened in the movie, left Kyungsoo with mixed expressions of happiness and surprise on his face. And when asked Jongin’s opinion about it, he said he was sad, though proud to see his hyung (and also the other EXO members) acting, gave me the feeling that he really cares about Kyungsoo to notice the parts that other people are beating him up, even if it’s in fiction.

In my opinion, the most intimate moment of this interview happened when Kyungsoo asked which restaurant he would like to take Jongin. I had this impression because, while they’re talking, Kyungsoo lowered his voice when answered to Jongin, even with they in the middle of a interview with a lot of cameras and mics. But the intention was to share this information with Jongin only and probably this wasn’t a big deal, but I think this moment summarizes well Kaisoo ship because even in front of the fans, they have some facts or interactions they want to keep away from the general public. And needless to comment on the pinky promise, it was very cute!

From this point, we see Kyungsoo and Jongin  praising each other until the end of the interview. Especially the part where they have to speak some talent that makes them jealous of the other. Honestly, to me, they seemed more proud than with envy or jealousy. Mostly Jongin, the most open of the two to talk about the things he likes about Kyungsoo. Who saw the interview with Chen and Jongin knows that he also spoke to Chen that he was “the best singer of Korea and was excited when he heard him sing” (basically the same thing that spoke to Kyungsoo). Only Jongin was really honest when he talked about Kyungsoo. First, because of his tone. The characteristic laugh he makes sometimes didn’t appear on his face when talked about his precious hyung and, besides, all Kaisoo shippers out there can remember at least one moment where Jongin gets starstruck when he hears Kyungsoo singing.

Jongin after Kyungsoo starts singing (he stays like this until the end)

This is a memorable moment one of my favorites. That’s because, by the time Kyungsoo starts singing, it was like Jongin had been hit by a spell. He seems so mesmerized by Kyungsoo’s voice that he can’t even blink!

Kyungsoo also seemed honest in talking about how he feels impressed with Jongin’s dance moves. He even said in other opportunity that he would fall for him if he were a girl after seeing him dance.

This gif explains very well this context. Kyungsoo can’t stop looking at Jongin’s dance and he looked so impressed and proud. But it isn’t the first time Kyungsoo acts like this. You can find a lot of another moments around here if you’re not convinced I was too lazy to look for more, I’m sorry.

Regarding their comment about Jongin teaching Kyungsoo a choreography, I have a theory about it that came into my mind even before this interview. Basically, the choreography Jongin taught Kyungsoo was the one he danced on “Deep Breath” performances prepared by Jongin himself.But I’m being randomly now, so I’ll stop talking about it if anyone has curiosity can ask me to do a post better preparing this part.

There are other things I’d like to point out before finishing this post, which are basically:

1. Their body language similarities during the whole interview

2. The way their bodies were discretly tilted towards each other;

3. Jongin’s voice tone while speaking to Kyungsoo. It’s nothing new but it reminded me a lot the way he spoke to/about Taeoh like he was the most precious thing on Earth;

4. How Kyungsoo was delighted, cheerful and sincere all the time.

As I said earlier, this interview shows why Kaisoo otp is so popular. They show different sides of each other when they are together, tolerate, respect each other’s differences and personalities, they see the qualities that the other has and compliment each other without being fake, the way they tease each other, and, above all, how the don’t to do skinship all the time to prove how much they like each other and, for me, this is the basis of a real and healthy relationship between two human beings.
