reader almost gets bit on a run and Daryl is furious with her. They get back to
the prison and she asks him to teach her a thing or two about self-defense
against walkers and people. Sweaty training ends in rough smut, Daryl style. ;)
You hear the gates of the prison opening, one by one, as you
sit in the car with Rick and Michonne, waiting to leave the prison and go to a
town nearby to gather supplies. You wipe your hands up and down your jeans a
few times and take a few deep breathes, trying to calm your nerves. This was
the first run you had gone on with Rick’s group and you were nervous as hell,
but you wanted to prove your worth to the group.
Rick and Daryl had rescued you from a herd of walkers a few
weeks, your group had been overrun by a sudden herd and you had lost everyone,
you thought you were also gone until you saw Rick and Daryl run up to you, with
four walkers nearly on top of you, as they chomped at you, trying to grab your
flesh. The two men easily pulled the walkers off you and smashed their heads
in, using their boots and couple of iron rods in their hands. They had been in
the area looking for supplies at the time they heard you scream. You had never
been so glad to see other people in your life.
After that they offered you a place to stay at the prison,
Rick asked the three questions and you seemed to pass. The past few weeks you
had been lucky enough to have a roof over your head, a safe place to sleep, and
people who actually seemed to be decent human beings. It was like an
out-of-body experience for this world, you were so happy to have found them.
And then there was Daryl, one of the men who had saved you. Daryl was something
so different, you didn’t even know how to describe him. Shy but confident,
tough but sensitive, kind but harsh, he was the kind of man it would take a
lifetime to figure out and you certainly would have no problem with that.
You couldn’t help but notice this confident, yet nervous,
man, every time he was near you. He didn’t say much, but he always seemed to
have twenty things on his mind. You wondered what it would be like to hear all
those thoughts that never escaped his mouth. This run was important to you,
showing the group you could handle yourself. But Daryl? Daryl was more
important, in a world like this, there is no time to sit back and ponder.You wanted to be with him any chance you got.
Your head snaps back to reality as you hear Daryl’s
motorcycle roar to life in front of the truck you rode in. You see Daryl look
back at Rick and nod as he drove forward out of the gates, one by one. Rick
followed him out and you look back, seeing Carl and Sasha quickly closing each
gate behind your entourage. You bite your lip a little feeling the rush of
butterflies again in your stomach. You gripped the knife in your hand tightly,
almost drawing blood, you wince and put the knife back in the holster on your
side, continuing to play with your hands for the drive.
Plot/Request: Anon requested- “Could you make an imagine of Daryl hating her since the beginning of the apocalypse and she gets killed by Negan with Lucille but Daryl never knew how much she meant to him until now?”
Word count: 603
Warnings: mentions of death (obviously??)
Note: got a lil carried away whoOps!
The bat lingered in front of your face, your expression one of fearlessness. You stared straight down the middle of the wooden weapon. With a brave composer, you straightened your back, lifting your body from off the ground, weight on your knees.
Negan gave you a small laugh, nodding at your valour. He grew a small amount of respect for your actions, but that was quickly disregarded as he spoke again.
“Anybody moves, anybody says anything, cut the boy’s other eye out and feed it to his father and then we’ll start.” He threatened, readying the bat in his somewhat sweaty palms. The weapon taunted you, twirling in all it’s glory.
Negan gave a quick glance to Rick, a smirk marking his face as he saw the realization sink into Rick. The terror he was inflicting. “You can breathe, you can blink, you can cry. Hell, you’re all gonna be doing that.”
And the bat smashed you down. Screams erupted from all around you, mostly from Maggie as she was directly to your right. You felt the cold dirt hit your cheek, warm blood oozing from the wound on your head. When he pulled back the bat, you could feel some of your hair ripping out– caught on the barbed wire.
You whimpered, blinking hard as you tried to compose yourself. With shaky hands, you raised again, facing your fate with a stoic passion.
“Ho! Ho! Look at that.” Your murderer leant in closer, taking a good look at the fatal wound he’d inflicted. “Shit, girl. You’re taking it like a champ!” Negan chuckled, hitting you back down once again. You felt your hand twitch and you knew it was over. “Damn!”
A week later, the sobs hadn’t stopped. Your name had been painted on the wall, your grave dug and reburied– a headless body along with it.
The others had mourned you, they were still mourning you. You couldn’t just leave them, not after everything you’d gone through with the group. Not after all the lives you saved.
But for Daryl, it wasn’t until the once irritating voice that nagged him every day disappeared, did he realize the wisdom it held. It wasn’t until your soft (Y/H/C) hair couldn’t be spotted from across Alexandra that he remembered how sweet it smelt. It wasn’t until your big (Y/E/C) eyes stopped staring into his that he registered just how much he loved the twinkle they held.
It wasn’t until you were gone, buried six-feet under, that Daryl became conscious of his feelings. How he loved how stubborn you were, somewhat like him. He saw the differences you had with the others, but also the effect you passed on. Like a stone being tossed into a lake, your character rippled through the group.
The humanity you still held on to, that was the biggest aspect. You’d managed to keep your kill count low, and often grieved over the lives you’d taken. Even the worst people, you tried to help. You recognized your feelings, and tried to display them for the world to see. Something Daryl never found himself doing– until now.
Daryl hadn’t ever been good with his emotions, but he wished in this moment that he could’ve been. That he could’ve looked past his anger and have been aware of how much you really meant to him, before you were gone.
Until now, Daryl had been oblivious. But now he knew, and he wouldn’t let it happen again.
I really hope Revo will grow out his hair again someday like he had when he composed for Bravely Default. I love the way his hair is now but I wouldn’t mind him growing out his hair again. I also hope he will wear a trench coat again too. The long hair, trench coat look makes him look sexy!
Tony’s hand slipped very
slowly back into his pocket, appearing as if he were just resting it there as
he listened to this man who had so purposefully stopped him, but his fingers
were dancing over the screen with adept muscle memory of where the letters
would be on the pad so that he could text you.
“Yes,” he coughed
nervously, “we take a lot of pride in how the team has pulled together to help
raise the triplets. They’re the most
loved kids in the world, and I know that any of us would do whatever it takes
to protect them.”
“I’m sure. But tell me, Mr. Stark, what would you do?
How far would you go if meant that you could keep them from harm’s way?”
In Commemoration of M’s Comeback, Lee Min Woo’s Solo 10-year History
In Commemoration of M’s Comeback, Lee Min Woo’s Solo 10-year History By Park Su-Jeong, 22nd Jan 2014
Singer Lee Min Woo is making a comeback not as the group Shinhwa but as the soloist M. 2014 marks Shinhwa’s 16th anniversary and his 10th anniversary (actually 11th) as a soloist, and Lee Min Woo is releasing a special album ‘M+TEN’ in commemoration of his 10-year anniversary. This “Solo 10-Year History” is prepared in commemoration with the comeback of Lee Min Woo, who is a pioneer amongst idols.
If you mention Shinhwa’s Lee Min Woo, you can’t help but think about dance. From their debut song ‘Problem Solver’ to the voguing dance for ‘This Love’ in 2013 which generated a lot of interest, Lee Min Woo has always personally taken an active role in the dance choreography. But Lee Min Woo is a member who has also made rapid improvement in his vocal skills. Being in charge of the strong (vocal) part in Shinhwa’s 2nd album “T.O.P”’s opening introduction as well as being in charge of the climax of the bridge in “Perfect Man” in the 5th album, his own vocal capability slowly unveiled itself. Furthermore, he had a strong musical desire to write songs to be included in Shinhwa albums. To Lee Min Woo, who has shown to excel in everything - dance, music and even production, a solo album was a very good opportunity to best showcase his capabilities. If we thoroughly analyze the solo albums that he released, we can see for ourselves his true musical ability.
# Start of M’s Solo Activities: :2003 ‘Un-touch-able’
Album cover of Lee Min Woo’s First Album
Lee Min Woo picked “Just One Night” as his title song for his first solo album. Oh Yoon-Ah, then more famous as a racing model than an actress, featured in the music video and her kiss scene with Lee Min Woo generated a lot of interest. ‘Just One Night’ is a song which reveals Lee Min Woo’s strong voice. All this while, he was known for Shinhwa’s powerful group dance and strong image. On the contrary, the jazzy feel of the R&B song “Just One Night” completely stood out with Lee Min Woo’s smooth, albeit thin, sweet voice. Actually Lee Min Woo’s voice which gently melts women’s hearts can be heard in the opening introduction for 'I Pray 4 U’ in Shinhwa’s 5th album but in “Just One Night” that sweet voice was even more distinct. To Lee Min Woo who was starting out as the soloist ’M’, “Just One Night” was without a doubt a good choice which revealed the charms of his voice. “Biya”, his follow-up song was a song which had “Just One Night”’s tenderness but with a hip-hop style. Having revealed that he has always liked “black” music, this was a song which reflected his musical taste.
# The Puppy-bong underneath his cool-water exterior, reversal charms : 2005 ‘If You…’
Cover of Lee Min Woo’s Single ‘If You’
If you felt the jazzy smoothness from “Just One Night” then the single “If You”, released in 2005, will without a doubt make you feel his cute tenderness. Especially in the music video, where he portrayed a man who is in love, Min Woo showed all of his adorable charms including his eye-smile. In “If You”, Min Woo showed his cute side for the first time, a complete change from his known image (cool guy) which was one of the secrets of his popularity, and received much cheers from fans. In particular, one of Lee Min Woo’s nicknames, 'Puppy-Bong’, a combination of the English word 'puppy’ and 'Bong’ from his other nickame 'Lee Min Bong’, is about his cute image. Through the music video for “If You” where he played with the popular dog mascot Sangeun from KBS2 Happy Sunday’s 2 Days 1 Night, “Puppy-Bong” was well-received.
# M who is ahead of his time : 2005 '2nd Winds’, 2007 'Explore M’
Lee Min Woo’s 2nd album cover (left) and 3rd album cover
His 2nd album and 3rd album was a transition period which simultaneously established his own musical identity, something which was truly “Lee Min Woo”. The title song “Bump” from the 2nd album and the title song “Stomp” from his 3rd album was of an uncommon genre in the music industry then. “Bump” which has a notably intense hip-hop beat was a song which Min Woo was inspired to write in only 10 minutes. Lee Min Woo achieved #1 in music shows and also became a singer-songwriter through “Bump”, and with the 3rd album, he firmly reinforced his musical style of pursuing an “intense sound” even more. However his 3rd album “Explore M” was unable to generate the same level of interest as the previous two albums. This was the side effect of Lee Min Woo having a sense (of music) which was far ahead of his time as compared to others. On the 20th, Lee Min Woo related the birth story of the title song for his solo 10th anniversary album, “TAXI”. He explained that “TAXI” was a song made 5 years ago but he wondered then if it was too far ahead of its time and seeing the response to the 2007 song “The M Style” after 3 years, he decided not to reveal “TAXI”. Lee Min Woo loves the intense style of “black music” but he needed to read the trends.
# Starting to read the trends : 2008 ’M Rizing’, 2009 'Minnovation’
Lee Min Woo’s 4th album cover (left) and 4.5th album cover
His effort at beginning to read the trends was revealed in 2008. “Don’t Trust Men”, the title song for his 4th full album “M RIZING” was a product which reflected the trend then. “Don’t Trust Men” was made by well-known composers Brave Brothers, but Lee Min Woo who completed his 2nd and 3rd album by himself began to find a compromise while working with other producers. Something which appears to be more well-received by the public than the previous albums. But the tendency to make sudden changes was rather confusing. Lee Min Woo did not have a distinct style of his own. Via trial and error, through his 4.5th album, Lee Min Woo again began to strongly reveal his individual style. He combined electronic sound, the then-trend, with his own style of an intense hip-hop beat. Here, Lee Min Woo put his whole heart into delivering the best performance. Lee Min Woo then prepared to complete his music to include both the current trend as well as the M Style and in order to express his determined resolution to brush off the weaknesses of his original work, he made a complete change including removing his name.
# 10-year veteran’s energy : 2014 ’M+TEN’
Lee Min Woo ‘TAXI’ Music Video Filming Site
Lee Min Woo is again in charge of the production of his solo album this time, 5 years since “Minnovation”. This album is the result of an accumulation of the solo singer’s know-how acquired over the past 10 years. It’s been 5 years since “Taxi” was preciously stored away for being too ahead of its time and it is now being revealed. Lee Min Woo is no longer restricted by his own musical style. He is only certain of the goal. Wanting music which allows him to breathe as one with the audience. He is someone who tends to think about the type of performance (to present) while listening to the music. Revealing his personal thoughts, when thinking about the performance, while insisting that the stage must be made with the music in mind, the “most important point is his desire to be breathing as one with the audience”. Will the wisdom acquired through his 10 years of experience, or rather 16 years as Shinhwa, shine through? The result will be revealed on February 6th.
usopps freak out and anger at luffy for his suggestions shows usopps cowardice how come there are always times where usopp goes back to his cowardly state like in the chapter where he ran away from trebol or in chapter 818 when he got upset about luffy disliking the idea of stealthily infiltrating the yonko and taking the copies or yelling about going to face the yonkos so soon its another showing of cowardice and another moment showing him being cowardly
I’ve written a lot on this subject, and I think that tons of people have a fundamental misunderstanding of what Usopp’s character is about. Read these posts here, here, and here. I’ve already said everything there is to say in those posts. But I’ll go and say some more again.
“Usopp is afraid to do something! That means he is a coward and he should be ashamed of himself and he’s just a big disappointment! He should have gotten 100% over all of his fears during the time skip!” No. No to all of that. Usopp’s character is not about how being afraid of things you have every freaking right to be afraid of makes you a coward and a loser. Usopp’s character is about how there is nothing wrong with being afraid, and that rising above that fear and doing what needs to be done is something amazing.
And how come it’s only Usopp who gets crap for being afraid of things?
Nami, Chopper, and Usopp are all afraid of the idea of throwing down with Kaido and Big Mom. And they should be! The majority of the crew is scared of these people because they are fucking terrifying. Brook as well has expressed being scared of them, and even Franky has
Calling people cowards for being afraid of fighting the Yonko is like calling someone a coward for being afraid to fight a grizzly bear or a silverback gorilla with their bare hands. It doesn’t matter how ~brave~ you are, you fucking should be afraid of them. How is it cowardice to be afraid of something that can easily kill you? Are you fearless, anon? If a bunch of guys broke into your house and shoved guns in your face would you be this cool, composed, brave hero who didn’t show a lick of fear? I’m going to guess not, and by your own standards that makes you a coward.
So yeah. Usopp is scared of things that he has every fucking right to be afraid of. Big deal. Because we all know that when push comes to shove, Usopp is going to put his life on the line for his friends. He always has and he always will. He’s scared like hell, but in the end he always does what he needs to do. And that’s what gives his character depth. He struggles with being a normal human in a world full of monsters. He doesn’t want to die. He doesn’t want to get ripped limb from limb by a superpowered inhuman beast. Wow, what a crime. But despite his legitimate fears, he has done so so so much to prove that he cares about the lives of his friends more than anything else and that he will always be willing to put his life on the line to protect theirs. And if you can’t see that, then you seriously do not understand a whole lot of the things that One Piece is about.

On this day, 240 years ago, the United States of America was founded. Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, these are only three of thousands of men (women helped too) who built our country. America is a symphony written by brave composers who are long gone, and we are the reprise. Freedom is what we fought for, and with it’s downsides and limitations that is what we have, I know things look bleak with a feminazi and a racist potato as the top two presidential candidates, but if America can win a war against an island of soldiers we can survive an idiot in office for a few years and undo what he’s done after he’s gone. Our country is still young, we’re barely walking. Hell, I doubt America is even drinking age by other countries standards we’re so damn young! So there’s nothing we can’t do together. So much blood and sweat and tears and love has been poured into the foundation of this country, so take a stand and help it thrive! When an idiot is elected into office, do we move to Canada? (I like Canada nothing against them by the way happy late birthday shout out to Canada bless you all) No! Do we move to France or England? We may want to they’re very pretty places, but no! We stand with our heads held high at every Brit and Frenchman and Spaniard and German… person? And everyone else who says we’ve doomed ourselves and we say “You may be right! Maybe we are doomed! Maybe we’ll fall on our asses! But we will die before we see this country fall without getting back up!” We won a war to win our independence, so go celebrate the victory of our forefathers and make history! HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
