bullshit my way through

Reasons why I relate to Reigen Arataka:

  • am prepared to bullshit my way through adulthood
  • fail at said bullshitting, and fail often
  • really only got this far in life because of luck
  • never know what I’m doing. pretend like I do
  • Sad and Tired™ but trying to ignore that
  • will adopt those four esper kids without hesitation. I am their mother now

 summary   → When the nation’s little sister, IU, gets into a huge scandal, your agency seizes the opportunity to thrust you into that now vacant spotlight. Your self-composed song Paper Doll becomes an overnight sensation, and soon people are itching to find out who was the one who broke your heart. All hell breaks loose once netizens discover that you used to date popular idol, Jeon Jungkook. Little do they know that it wasn’t him who left the relationship unscathed –  it was you.

 a/n  → i haven’t even been on tumblr for a week and askdjjj I can’t believe how many people liked pt. i –  also, I know absolutely nothing about songwriting or music theory, or anything really, so this is me bullshitting my way through 4k words that i haven’t proofread

You associated every song of yours to a specific time and place.

The whimsical cluster chords that opened up Blue Afternoon made you think of the view from your window last spring. Looking down on the busy streets of Seoul from your flat, a crowding of umbrellas had danced to the sound of heavy rain, and you had been immediately struck with a melody line.

That was your favorite part of songwriting – that moment when you finally had something, after having absolutely nothing.

Ironically enough, out of all the songs on your album, you disliked Paper Doll the most.

Even before it had been propelled to the top of the music charts, the song had never been a favorite. The melody line was catchy but predictable, with the most common chord progressions and an overproduced chorus. The people reviewing your songs during the album production had all loved it, however, and they had adamantly decided to push it as a title track.

It was amusing how people presumed the song described a devastating heartbreak between you and your first love. They weren’t exactly wrong, but their interpretation was completely off. Still, you weren’t stupid enough to disapprove their theories. If they wanted to believe that your first boyfriend was a heartless playboy, then that wasn’t your problem.

At least you had never thought it would have to be a problem.

Where were you taught to speak english so fluently??

Hello, Lovely Anon!

Okay so, my uncle is from the USA, and when I was a kid, he used to give me Game Boy games in English for my birthday sometimes because he felt that I could find my way through the text. One of those games was Pokémon Gold when it first came out, so I had this, for the time, huge game with tons of text and I had to figure out what things meant, but we didn’t have an English dictionary for the longest time so I just kinda bullshitted my way through the game and slowly figured out what was what based on the first game (I had played Blue in German, but gotten Yellow in English later).
So at age 6-8, I had intense Pokémon vocabulary training in a language I didn’t understand, and I guess my brain just kinda started to remember connections and associations with words and pictures and while I had no fucking idea how to pronounce any of it, I got a feel for the language itself I guess?

My school started teaching it when I was 12 or 13 and that was also when I started to do things on this mysterious new-ish thing called “the internet” , so from then on out, I learned how to pronounce and build sentences on my own (because I was pretty good at understand people at that point, just not speaking myself) through school, talking to people on the internet, movies and badly subtitled anime (remember that time? oh man). I made shitty fan comics back then in absolutely horrible English, so even though that shit is hilarious to look at now, it was good practice still!

And after I turned 16, most of it came from watching movies and playing games in English. When you surround yourself with a language, you learn it relatively fast, at least in my own experience, and since people don’t speak English here, this was the way to do it.

So yeah, in summary: Pokémon games in English when I was 6, school and the internet when I was 12 and movies and games from then on out. And that’s it, really! I hope this answered your question, Lovely Anon!

I’ve seen a lot of headcanons floating around of smart!Kara because krypton was light years ahead of earth with its technological advancements, and I just wanted to adapt the headcanon in light of the most recent episode: headcanon that either Kara totally could have carried on a conversation with Lena about quantum physics had it been in her own tongue, or (my personal choice) Kara was totally bullshitting her way through the quantum physics conversation while internally screaming about how much she knew about the subjects but how she couldn’t say anything otherwise she would risk her true identity being revealed.

Lena: “What do you know about quantum entanglement? Polyatomic anions?”
Kara:*laughs nervously* quantum who? entanglement wha? *shrugs, stupidly smiling*
Kara (inside): of fuckin course I know about polyatomic anions what do you take me for a fuckin kindergartner goddamned bullshit quantum mechanics learned that shit before I knew how to walk

batmaninja  asked:

Since LATB is potentially heading to certain things. How long do you think you'll end up making the story. Is there any end goal that you're hoping to have happen? Like a planned end to work up to?

not… really?? lmao I’ve never really had a projected plot for tlatb I just sat down one day and thought “what happens to ladybug when shes on her period?” and then things got… out of hand. to this day, im just bullshitting my way through new chapters as we go, and waiting until i find a natural stopping point that i like.

(im tempted to end it once Marinette reveals herself but im so much of a slut for post-reveal stuff ill probably keep going for a couple chapters)
