Mr. Irwin: Teacher!Ashton

Request: Can you do a teacher Ashton smut?

Requested By: crazyfandommasterlist

A/N:  Hey guys I hope you like this one if you do please reblog and like it would mean so much to me. By the way requests are closed right now but after I catch up on the ones that I have committed to I will re open them. Please understand that is very graphic and sexual in nature. Therefore if you are not comfortable with that please do not read. Thanks you all so much, enjoy!

DISCLAIMER - I IN NO WAY CONDONE SLEEPING WITH YOUR TEACHER. IN REAL LIFE THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. A TEACHER WHO SLEEPS WITH THEIR STUDENT EVEN OVER 18 YEARS OLD CAN LOSE THEIR JOB AND BE PUT ON THE SEXUAL PREDATOR’S LIST. THIS SITUATION IS 100% FANTASY.

Sitting at my desk I quickly try to finish the rest of my test knowing Mr. Irwin’s rule of when the bell rings, your test ends. I can practically hear the clock ticking down knowing I have several more question and my heart picks up it’s pace. Then there it is the dreaded ring.

“Fuck.” I mumble under my breath. “What the hell am I going to do?”

I hear students all around me packing up their things and getting read to go. “Ms. Y/L/N, please stay behind.” Mr. Irwin says standing from his desk to collect other student’s midterms as the head out the door.

I sit patiently and try to take deep breaths. Not only the fact that I would have to tell him I did not finish is making me nervous but Mr. Irwin is extremely handsome, fresh out of uni himself, and has me completely head over heels for him. I’m the classic teacher’s pet. I study hard, always take note, get good grades, and I always remember to say hello at the beginning of class and tell him to have a nice day at the end. The classroom goes silent as the last student exits and Mr. Irwin slowly walks towards me. My hands are becoming clammy and I’m already super pink in the cheeks.  

“Y/N do you have anywhere to be after class today?” He asks after sitting down in the desk beside me and looking up at the clock.

With a deep breath I manage to speak. “No Sir I don’t.”

“Good… you know Y/N you are my best student and I appreciate the effort you put into your education with me.” I try to smile, nod, anything but I can’t, I feel absolutely paralyzed by him. He gives me an awkward look. “Y/N I didn’t call you after to yell at you… I would just like you to finish you test, you deserve the best grade you can get.”

I light up. “Really Mr. Irwin?” I ask in shock and he nods. “Thank you! Thank you so much, I promise I won’t be too long.”

“Oh don’t worry.” He chuckles. “Stay as long as you need, I’ll be up front if you need me.”

Taken back by his warmness toward me I have to shake myself and get back to work. Finally I finish and collect my thing before walking to him and placing the test on his desk.

“Thank you again Mr. Irwin.” I say smiling.

Looking up from his paper work he smiles back at me and takes his reading glasses off. “Of course, as long as you don’t have somewhere to be I would like to talk to you.” The nervous feelings bubble up inside me again but I say okay. “Good, you may sit.” He says pulling a chair up to his. I do as he says and put my stuff on the ground. “Y/N I think you know you are my favorite student.” He chuckles a little. “And I think we both know… there is something else going on here…”

My eyes almost pop out of my skull. Is this really happening right now? “W-what do you mean?” I ask trying my best not to stutter.

“Oh come on you are smarter than this. You come in here everyday exchanging a few nice words with me before sitting at your seat and then constantly looking at me with those beautiful eyes of yours leaving me to only imagine what you could be thinking about when you cross and uncross your legs and bite on your own lower lip.” I turn completely red and go to speak but he stops me. “Don’t even try to lie about it Y/N I see the way to look at me when you think I’m not paying attention…. but if you want me to stop just say it….” He pauses. I shake my head eager but also nervous to see what is about to come. “Well you know when sometimes I’ll stumble across my words during a lecture or lesson. You know what I thinking of?” He asks.

“No I don’t.” I whisper before asking. “Tell me.”

“I think about making everyone leave, locking the door, and taking you over this wooden oak desk right here. I think about pleasing you until you scream before I even get undressed. I think about fucking you so hard that every other man you’ll meet will just be a disappointment. I think of holding you in my arms after I’ve completely taken over you and how I’d pet your hair, kiss your skin, and whisper little sweet nothings in your ear.” He says smirking and almost whimpering at his words I stay quiet. “Now you think you can follow my directions?”

“Yes Sir.” I say standing up immediately ready for whatever task he is about to give me. I smooth out the shirt I’m wearing a little awkwardly.

“Go lock the door and then come stand right in front of me.” Quickly I do as he asks and when I get in front of him he stand up as well.

He smiles towering over me and caressing my cheek with his thumb. “Good girl… but before we move any further let’s promise to keep this our little secret…. At least for now.”

“I promise.” I assure him as I courageously place one of my palms on his lower chest.

“Very good… now may I finally kiss you?” He asks making me smile and blush. He smiles too pulling me closer.

“Please do.” I whisper and he does almost immediately. The kiss is surprisingly soft and gentle.

“All those other girls trot into my classroom in big heels with tight shirts pushing their breasts out and little miniskirts so that when they sit I could catch a glance. But you… you come in here in this.” He smiles chuckling to him seeing. “You’re comfortable, you look amazing, you’re not showing yourself off for my attention. No you got my attention though because you make my mind run wild desperate to know what secrets you’re hiding.” He pauses and kisses me again and this time I deepen the kiss so he does too. He swiftly picks me up and sits me on his desk. He pulls away and starts unbuttoning his shirt but his fingers keep stumbling.

“Let me.” I smile at him as he blushes because he’s been playing the role of the dominate and here I am having to help him. I get all of his buttons undone and tug off his tie. He then takes his tank top off so his chest is bare. “Wow.” I mumble at how toned he truly is.

He chuckles. “Your turn now baby.” He smirks at me seeing how I light up when he calls me that. I help him take off my shirt leaving me in my bra and skirt. “You like it when I call you that baby?” I nod and grin and he leans in kissing me. “Good girl… let’s take this off too…” He smirks pulling my skirt off and then allowing me to help me unbuckle his pants. “Fuck you are way too beautiful… “ He chuckles and wipes things off his desk and lays me back so he can kiss all over my skin. I giggle a little as he kisses over my stomach tickling me a bit. He chuckles too and then kisses my lips again. “I’m trying not to go to fast so that your comfortable but it’s so fucking hard…”

“I am comfortable, just fuck me already.” I somehow convince myself to whimper out. He stares at me for a moment and I panic. “Please?”

He laughs again. “As you wish baby girl.” He then tears all the rest of our clothes off so that we are completely bare and after slipping a condom on he starts teasing me with the tip of his cock. I moan out for him and lace my fingers with his of the hand that was resting on my hip. “Fuck baby you are so beautiful.” He says and then slides himself inside of me.

“Fuck…” I moan out and squeeze his hand. He groans two and waits until I give him the okay to start moving. “Oh my god, Mr. Irwin.” I moan at the sensation.

“You can call me Ashton baby.” He chuckles before it turns into a moan. Ashton picks up his pace before leaning towards me so not only can he go back to kissing me but that so he can also have easier access to my clit. He covers my mouth as I moan out just a little too loud for him desperately. “We can’t get caught baby.”

I nod and he lets go of my mouth. “Ashton you feel so good.” I mumble desperately. “Please go harder, oh my god.”

“Of course baby.” He chuckles and the groans as the sound of our skin colliding fills the room. “Fuck are you close?” I nod and moan loudly but Ashton is too distracted to cover my mouth. “Good girl I want you to cum for me.”

“Fuck okay, oh my god.” I whine as I feel my high and he starts kissing all over my skin. “Of fuck Ashton.” I yelp orgasming hard and he quickly pulls me off of him and pushes me to the ground.

“Can you swallow for me?” He groans as he pleasures himself and throws his head back. I push his hands out of the way and start sucking him off as answer. “Fuck, good girl, I’m almost there.” He groans and grips my hair. Before I know it he cums in my mouth and I swallow for him. Ashton pulls me back up and kisses me hard. “You’re amazing Y/N.”

“So are you…” I giggle.

We kiss again and he sighs. “I really like you… “ Ashton blushes at me and that surprises me a little.

“I really like you too…” I mumble blushing too. “So what now?”

He chuckles. “How about this?” He says pausing and getting a key from his coat pocket. “How about you go back to my place, make yourself at home, I’ll be home in a half an hour and then we can talk yeah?” I nod and he kisses me smiling me. “This is going to be quite the adventure.”

“That it is.”

You Serve Me

“This isn’t right.” You said to yourself mostly, but Percival still came over, looming his head over to look at the paperwork. His cologne wafted into your senses, mixed with the smell of peppermint toothpaste and coffee. It was just hitting 9am, and you were already eager to head home, not wanting to deal with the pile of irrelevant data that had stacked up on your desk.

“Then fix it.” He shrugged, sipping on the double espresso coffee you had brought for him before work started. “That’s what you’re for, right?”

You had to hold yourself back with great difficulty from slapping his smirking mug. This had been going on since the start of the week, and you were completely fed up. It was enough to belittle you by using his superiority to make you take his coffee orders, but now he was crossing a line by getting you to do his work.

“How long do you plan to torment me?” Your voice raised, face locked in a permanent scowl as you watched the smile fall from his face.

“Are you forgetting your role, (Y/n)?” He grumbled, trying to look indifferent as his cold laced words escaped him. “I am the director of magical security, you serve me.”

You threw your hands in the air, flabbergasted. “Yes but I’m not your personal assistant Percy-“

“That’s Mr. Graves, while you’re here.”

He threw a knowing smirk. He was playing a dangerous game here, but he didn’t seem to realise. You could’ve let every Auror know just how Mr. Graves likes getting his cock sucked, or how he worships your body on the weekends. But instead you found yourself putting on a pleasant smile, obeying him for the sake of plotting your revenge in a much more torturous way.

RFA SCENARIOS: "I Love You~"

(SOLDIER MADI REPORTING TO DUTY~ okay, this wasn’t a request. Oops. I have quite a few requests now. However, I felt like writing this while I still had the Ideas. I will answer some more requests either later tonight, or tomorrow (because I am tiRED.

Thank you to all who are sending in the requests, though :))

~~

Yoosung:

The fall breeze blew through your (H/C) locks, causing them to wave behind you. You let out a soft sigh, rubbing your cold hands together for warmth.

Yoosung took notice of this, and couldn’t help the smile that tugged on his features. He slowly brought a hand down to your own, gently interlocking your hand in his, instantly spreading warmth into it.

The two of you decided you would go buy a new video game to play with each other, wanting to spend more time together. He was always playing LOLOL, so, you wanted to see if you could find something that you could play instead of the usual.

Beginning to get bored of walking, you let out a small groan, and tilted your head up towards the sky. In that moment, you two had finished walking past a line of large trees, that were blocking the sun from hitting you.

A ray of light seemed to make it’s way on your (S/C) skin, giving you a beautiful glow.

Yoosung felt his breath hitch in his throat as he stared at your now smiling figure. The way he saw you…you were absolutely stunning.

The boy gulped, unable to stop himself from saying exactly what was on his mind.

“God..I just…gahh, I love you so much, (Y/N).” He admitted, shyly looking down at the leaf filled side walk.

You snapped your head over to him, blinking. Had you heard him right? Did he just say what you thought he said?

Once you finally processed what he had actually said, you had to think for a moment. How did you feel?

This boy had just confessed. He was giving you the opportunity to smash his heart on the ground if you didn’t feel the same.

You took a deep breath, letting out a small giggle. Yoosung bit his lip, not sure if that meant you didn’t return the feeling.

“Yoosung. I love you, too.” You finally said. His face lit up, happiness filling his violet eyes.

He picked you up into the air, excitedly spinning you around. Once he put you down, he couldn’t help but place a delicate kiss on your soft, pink lips.

You stayed like that for a few moments, just melting into each other.

Yes, you truly did love this boy..

707:

“COME ON SOLDIER, I’LL RACE YOU! FIRST ONE TO GET TO THE HONEY BUDDHA CHIPS WINS.” Luciel exclaimed, starting to run off in the direction of the chips.

You let out a gasp, and pushed your bottom lip out.

“CAPTAIN SEVEN..! YOU LITTLE CHEATING SHIT!” You yelled out to him, as you tried to catch up.

Of course, exercise was never your thing. You’d much rather find yourself on the couch with some pizza, and a marathon of (Favorite Show.)

“I KNOW YOU DON’T ‘DO EXERCISE’ BUT COME ON.” He started to bust out in laughter, unable to continue running for the time being, due to the lack of breath.

You smirked, knowing exactly what to do. You would take advantage of the red head’s sudden pause, and pass him. Then, you’d be on top of the world!! Or..at least, on top of his chip stash.

You began to sprint as fast as you could, desperately trying to catch up. He didn’t notice at first, and by the time he actually did..it was too late.

You passed him with a grin, chuckling lightly at his mistake.

Once you made it to the Honey Buddha Chips, you collapsed into the floor, breathing heavily.

It took a moment, but Luciel caught up to you, sitting down in a criss-crossed position. He stuck his tongue out at you, taking a bag of the chips from the pile.

“Well, that’s all the exercise I’m doing this year.” You panted, also pulling yourself out a bag.

Luciel laughed, smiling at his lazy excuse of a girlfriend. He loved how cute you were when you were lazy. He loved how you’d always joke around with him. He loved that you two had the whole “soldier, captain” deal going on…and..he just loved you.

He didn’t know if it was too early or not, but he knew what he wanted to say, and he wasn’t going to hold it back.

“I really love you, you know that?” He quietly admitted, leaning over to you. He brushed a stand of your (H/C) hair out of your face, placing a quick kiss on your lips.

You tensed up, as he said those three words to you for the first time. Playing it cool, you relaxed into him.

You pulled away from each other, smiling.

“I love you too, Luciel.”

~~

Jumin:

You smiled, thanking the waitress as you got the bill.

Jumin reached a hand over to pick it up, but you quickly grabbed it before he could even brush a finger on it. He looked over at you, slightly tilting his head in confusion.

“I want to pay!” You exclaimed, pulling your card out of your wallet. Jumin’s eyes widened for a moment, as if he couldn’t believe his ears.

“(Y/N). Don’t be ridiculous. I’ll be paying for our meal. It’s common curiosity.” He sighed, holding out his hand for the check. You narrowed your eyes, your lips forming a tiny smirk.

“We could at least split the bill.” You reasoned, placing your card down on the white clothed table.

Jumin was starting to get even more confused. Why weren’t you like other girls? Why weren’t you trying to get him to pay for the dinner, along with having him get you a thousand other things? Of course, he wouldn’t mind if you were. He would happily spend some money on you. However..the fact that he was assured you weren’t after his money..was very calming.

“You want to split the bill?” He asked, smiling softly. You nodded, and he shrugged, reaching over to take your card. At first, you felt satisfied..but then, you realized that he was putting your card in his back pocket.

“Hey! What are you doing?” You frowned, moving a stand of hair out of your face.

Jumin propped his elbows up on the table, continuing to give you that charming smile of his.

“You’ll get it back when we leave.” He casually stated, making your eyes widen.

“What? I thou-” he cut you off, getting a more serious look on his face.

“I appreciate the thought, (Y/N), however, I wish for you to keep your own money. I’ll take care of it tonight.”

You let out a small groan, glancing over to the side of the floor. Jumin chuckled, moving his arms back off the table.

“Don’t be like that, (Y/N). You know, I love you..” He confidently admitted, having no doubt in his mind that you were someone special to him.

You quickly looked to him, a big grin finding its way on your face.

“Is that so…? Well, Mr. Han. I love you, too, if I do say so myself~”

~~

Zen:

Zen jumped off the stage, grabbing the icy water bottle he had left on the floor.

You were currently watching one of his rehearsals, and let me just say..hot.

You looked up from your position in the old theater chair, slowly pushing yourself up to sit straight. You gave Zen a quick little wave, earning a smile from the man. He quickly mouthed a “hello, beautiful” to you, before pulling himself back on stage.

Zen took a big drink of the water, setting it back down as soon as he was finished. He rubbed his hands together, looking back over at the director.

“Now, I want you to really put yourself into this role. I know you can do it, Zen.” The director said. “Lights..Camera…ACTION!”

“Please, (insert other female name here.) Not after all we’ve been though…If you leave, what am I? Will I even be a man anymore? Or will I just become..become a lost child?” Zen said to the female lead in front of him.

You watched as he played out the scene, almost cringing at some parts of the script. You kinda wished you the one up there. That way, he could be talking to you. Even if it was cringe worthy.

Zen took the other females hand in his, looking her into the eyes as he prepared to say the next line.

“I love you, (Y/N)…” He stage whispered, before realizing his error. You felt yourself choke on the air, widening your eyes.

“CUT..! God, Zen..” The director sighed, running a hand through his hair. He waved his hand at Zen, grabbing his own water. “Take five.”

Zen quickly came back off stage, rushing over to be by your side.

“Hey..! (Y/N)! Uhm..did you hear that?” He nervously asked, awkwardly scratching the back of his neck. You blinked, nodding slightly, unable to form an actual word. “Damn..I was hoping to tell you in a more romantic way then that.” He sighed, taking your hand, and pulling you up to your feet. “I guess I’ll just have to do this now.” He smiled. Before you could have a chance to speak, he kissed you.

You felt yourself go weak at the knees, wrapping your arms around his neck.

All too soon, he pulled away from you, resting his forehead on yours.

“I do love you, (Y/N).” He whispered breathlessly.

“I love you, too, Zen..”

~~

Jaehee:

You two had a day off, and you knew instantly that you wanted to spend it together.

So, there you were. Cuddled up together on your bed, ensuring that you both stayed warm on this particularly chilly fall night.

Normally, you two talked about more serious topics, which usually ended in one of you ranting, or making some deep confession.

As always, this was the case.

You two talked about how much the other meant to you, almost making it like a childish competition.

“Well, Jaehee.” You started, shifting slightly in the bed, keeping one arm securely wrapped around her. “Have I ever told you..that you’re the most beautiful woman I have ever laid my eyes on?” You whispered, giving her a small smirk. You placed a finger underneath her chin, leaning your head over just enough to place a soft kiss on her small lips.

She let out a groan when you parted, obviously wanting more. She slowly moved her hand down to your lower back, rubbing small circles into your skin.

“Well, (Y/N). How about I tell you..that I love you..” She shyly says, a blush taking over her features. You felt your heart skip a beat, as you bit your lip. You were happy that she really did feel the same way as you.

“Well, I’d say that I love you, too.”

~~

V:

You brought the bag of bread down from the bottom shelf, placing it onto the kitchen counter.

You let out a small puff of breath, grabbing the toaster and plugging it in. You wanted to make some breakfast, and originally planned on making a great, big healthy one..but, it was just too much effort for you to put forth at the moment.

V wandered his way into the kitchen, smiling as he saw your beautiful figure moving around as you made some toast. He almost wished he had his camera. Even in your most simple moments, you still managed to fascinate him.

Noting that you didn’t seem to notice the blue haired man, he slowly walked over to you, wrapping his strong arms around your torso from behind. He snuggled his head into your neck, placing a soft kiss on it.

The gestures as a whole had first startled you, making you jump a bit. He didn’t seem to mind, as he only secured his grip around you.

“V, would you like some toast?” You laughed, preparing to get another couple of slices out of the bag.

“I’d love some. Thank you, (Y/N).” He said, pulling away from you. You instantly felt a wave of the cool air surround you, and you sighed.

V leaned on a nearby chair, continuing to watch you make the toast. He was grateful that you were put in his life. Especially after he had went through hell and back. He constantly had to ask himself..“is this real? Do I actually deserve such a wonderful woman?”

He only had three words left to say to you in this moment.

The toast finally popped out of the toaster, and you jumped again, obviously startled by the sudden noise it had made.

V chuckled at you, watching as you placed the slices of toast on a plate. You handed him the plate, giving him a sweet smile.

“Thank you, (Y/N).” He said. He gave you a quick kiss on the cheek, before leaning over by your ear. “I love you.” He stated, refusing to make eye contact. Your heart fluttered, as you pulled him into a tight hug.

“I love you, too, V.”

~~

Saeran:

You let out a groan, as you sat yourself in your desk chair, placing your head in your hands.

Saeran looked over at you from his spot on your bed, tilting his head at your sudden action.

“(Y/N)?” He said, standing up, and moving over to where you were. He didn’t really know what to do in this situation, so, he awkwardly placed a hand on your back, patting it lightly.

You sighed, lifting your head back up to look at him. He gasped the moment you looked up. You had tears in your eyes, and it was quite obvious they’ve been there for a while. Your eyes were all red and puffy, and their were little tear stains on your pink cheeks.

He started to mentally panic, not knowing what to do or say. He hated to see you upset..it physically pained him to see you even about to cry.

“(Y/N)..uh..what’s..what’s wrong?” He tried, raising a brow.

You pushed your hair behind your ear, 100% ready to rant.

You began to talk about how these girls were talking about you at the store, making rude remarks right in front of you. You had a fight with one of your good family members, and they seemed to be pretty damn mad at you, now.

And so on and so forth.

“- and I just don’t know what to do. I feel as if the world just hates me. Everyone hates me.” You said, exaggerating a little bit, due to your frustration. Saeran blinked, not wanting to hear you say this about yourself.

“I don’t hate you..” Saeran said, trailing off at the end. You gave him a half hearted smile, before giving him a pat on the back.

“Than-”

“..Because I- I think I love you.” He finished, giving you a confident smile. You didn’t think, before pulling him into a crushing hug.

“Really, now? Well, I think I love you, too.”

Normani Kordei

Dancing In Perfect Harmony

By Deborah Wagner

When Normani Kordei agreed to join the twenty fourth season of ABC’s hit television show Dancing with the Stars, she hadn’t realized what a life changing experience it would be. Since 2012, Kordei has been best known as one of the five original members of the popular girl group Fifth Harmony.

Through the DWTS experience, Kordei has learned that it was a little difficult at first being in the spotlight without her “sisters” – as she lovingly calls her group-mates Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke and Dinah Jane. (Former group member Camila Cabello left last year to pursue a solo career.) However, it has also turned into a fulfilling personal growth experience. During this period, Kordei has found out how strong she really is, and that she can succeed at anything she puts her mind to.  

Blossoming in front of the millions of DWTS viewers every week, twenty-year old Kordei has grown into a confident young woman right before our eyes. She has proven to herself – and tens of millions of viewers and fans – that she is in this competition to win the coveted mirror ball trophy, like Laurie Hernandez, Nyle DeMarco and Bindi Irwin had before her.

With dance moves that are now up to par with the professionals, Kordei’s hard work is paying off as she continues to nail her dance moves and receive rave reviews from the judges – including Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inana, Julianne Hough and Bruno Yonioli. Her partner and teacher Val Chmerkovskiy has helped her master the art of telling stories rhythmically through her movements. With the help of his exceptional choreography, the two have earned a spot at the top of the leaderboard for many weeks during the season.

Now, with the final two weeks of Dancing with the Stars here, Kordei is bittersweetly working hard to perfect her final dances. During these long and tiring days, this hard-working New Orleans-born and Texas-raised go getter continues to strive for excellence in these last performances. During a break in her busy practice schedule, Kordei took a half hour to chill and chat with us.

For the last five years, you have been accustomed to shining with four – now three – partners in Fifth Harmony. On DWTS though, it’s just you (and Val, of course) out there. How different does it feel to have the spotlight on you?

It’s honestly a bit of an adjustment having the whole spotlight solely on me. Kind of entering a world of my own, outside of Fifth Harmony. It’s also been refreshing, too. We’ve been together for the last four or five years. We do have an amazing time, the four girls now, coming from different walks of life making one common goal happen. But, I feel that we only showcase pieces of who we are as humans and individuals. Ally, Dinah, Lauren and myself, we make up what Fifth Harmony now is, but we still have dreams outside of the group. I’ve always loved to dance, which I hardly got to do while in Fifth Harmony. It’s just really cool, because I proved to myself that, “Yeah girl, you still got it.”

My passion is still there for dance. People are getting the opportunity to get to know me. I’ve also really surprised myself during the process. I think that Val has done an incredible job, not just as a choreographer and a teacher, but as a friend. Helping me grow and pulling things out of me that I didn’t even know were there. I’m just super happy. It’s like a family there at Dancing with the Stars.

Your Fifth Harmony sisters have shown you so much love during this experience. What has the support from them, your family and your fans meant to you?

Oh, man. The support of my family and friends and the girls means the absolute world to me. I don’t know if you saw the week – I think it was week four – where the girls actually came on and the sang “Impossible,” which is the first song that we ever performed as a group in the X-Factor days after meeting each other. We had to sing that song. It was pretty symbolic after singing it then and it now; everything that had happened in between made it mean even more. They’re always texting me after every show. Lauren told me she sat up crying after my contemporary dance this week. But, they’re super supportive and it means the world. I support them. We are sisters at the end of the day. That’s what we are supposed to do.

As far as my family and friends, they are over the moon. They love to see me happy. [It is] almost a breakthrough, just me recognizing my strengths. They always tell me it’s okay to give myself a pat on the back sometimes. My grandmother’s favorite show is Dancing with the Stars, so she is out there every week. They’re all cheering me on. That’s priceless for me!

You’ve already connected with millions through your singing. Now you’re receiving such praise and high scores (including two perfect ones) for your dance. Did you ever think you would be able to connect so completely through dance?

I felt it in my heart that was my way of communicating and speaking to people. Dance was actually my first passion, even before I started singing. I was dancing for as long as I can remember. It’s like a trance that I go in. It’s like an out of body experience, with me completely being immersed in the music. It’s really about storytelling. I’m really feeling it. It’s freedom of expression. I have been having the best time on Dancing with the Stars. I love all the different genres. Even though I came from a dance background, I’ve never done any ballroom dancing. So, it’s always a lot of work. I always feel it when I’m on the stage, every Monday.

Your dance this week was both beautiful, yet painful all at the same time. It gave me chills. It’s getting people talking about the problem of cyber-bullying. First I want to say, I am sorry that you had to go through that. No one ever should. Secondly, as a Mom of two kids who have also experienced bullying, what would you say to others who are trying to escape the painful experience of bullying and cyber bullying?

Cyber bullying is a very devastating thing to have to go through for anyone, whether you are an adult of a child. That’s the thing with social media, it can be powerful and positive but at the same time, it can really tear people apart. It sucks because it’s the face and the force of this generation. We use it so heavily and depend on it like it’s second nature. It’s like all we know. But I think that cyber bullying is only a piece of the conversation that Val and I were discussing through our performance and our dance. With cyber bullying, I talked about it because I’ve been through it. [However, the dance was] for anybody that’s going through adversity and who feels lonely or helpless and feels the world is caving in. In society, we pick on each other and we create these barriers.

We are all on this Earth for a reason. We have a purpose. I think about how much better we could be if we were all united and had more love for one another. If we had sympathy. If we had open hearts and open minds, instead of being so closed minded. At the end of the day, everyone seeks acceptance. Anyone listening and going through cyber bullying or bullying in any way, I think you really just need to dig deep to find your freedom, because nobody else is going to give it to you. It’s something that you have to accept and take within yourself. Naturally, whenever the rest of the world doesn’t accept you, it’s all about self-acceptance. What you think about yourself looking in the mirror. Thinking I’m happy with he or she. I know what I have to offer. That’s what matters.

Throughout the seasons of Dancing with the Stars, you can always tell if there is a real connection between the star and their dancing partner. Your connection with Val seems like such a strong bond, built with admiration and respect. What has it been like to go through this experience with him?

Going through this experience with Val, first and foremost let me say, I remember the first day walking into the room and learning the choreography and being super timid. I’m a totally different person than when I walked in. I really have him to thank for that. He has changed me in the best way possible. I’m forever grateful. He is my friend, my teacher, my choreographer. He’s like my brother.

It also helps that I generally do look up to him. Not just as a dancer but as a person. He teaches me constantly, every day. We talk about things that are going on in the world and about things like family and everything. He is a hard worker and an amazing human being. He never fails to stop and serve other people as well. He’s always taking the time to think about how he can help kids recognize that their dreams also matter. It doesn’t matter where they come from. It’s about what they have in their heart and their determination. He’s really good at instilling great values and making you a believer. He really makes me feel like I can do anything.

It sounds like they picked the perfect partner for you, then.

Yeah, I couldn’t ask for anyone better. I don’t know if I’d get the same experience, or grow the same way, if it hadn’t been for him. I genuinely love him. Even after the show is over, he’ll play a significant role. I am really blessed that he’s part of my world and I am now part of his.

As rewarding as this experience has been, it must be exhausting touring with Fifth Harmony and practicing with Val for the live shows. How are you taking care of yourself while this time?

Well, it has definitely been a lot. It’s crazy to even sit here and think about traveling back and forth from Asia to LA for the first three weeks of the show. It was definitely a challenge and took a toll on my body, obviously. I got injured about two or three weeks ago when I did my salsa number – “When I Grow Up.” That was the first week that we started to do lifts and flips and tricks. I hadn’t danced in five years, maybe even longer, so my body was not used to it anymore.

On top on flying and the lack of sleep, I had a really severe pulled muscle strain in my back and my hip. There were two different muscle strains. One wasn’t affected by the other, but they just so happened that I had two at the same time. I felt like it slowed me in a way. You guys might not have seen it, but for me it was really frustrating. I was like, “Why can’t I get this?” or “Why do we have to change this lift?” It would have looked so good, but physically I could not do it. We’ve definitely had an emotional rollercoaster throughout this journey, but I think it’s shaped us and is part of our story. Part of the reason I’ve worked so hard. In those times where it’s like you can’t overthink this, we have to just do it. We’d be performing in Asia on the carpet, in the lobby, in front of people, anywhere we could for days before the performance, in the airport. It’s all pieces of our journey and of our story.

Would you recommend this experience of DWTS to one of your 5H partners?

Heck to the yes! (laughs) I’d recommend this experience to anybody! It’s amazing. I can’t really put it into words. I’m sad that it’s coming to an end, we are in our last weeks. I was really emotional yesterday. I was sitting down thinking about it. I’m just super grateful looking in the faces of every single person that makes up what Dancing with the Stars is.

It’s the reason that we can put these incredible shows on Monday night – down to hair, down to makeup, down to wardrobe. It really is fancy. There’s just a fulfillment that you get, going out there, on that stage and on that ballroom with your partner, every single Monday. Knowing that your inspiring someone, it’s a special feeling. It’s electrifying. I can’t even explain it or completely put it into words.  

Once Dancing with the Stars season is over, do you plan on going back into the studio with Fifth Harmony? We know your 5H fans would love to hear some new music.

Oh, I never left the studio. I was actually in the studio last night. Yeah, we started recording before I even started Dancing with the Stars. We are still in the studio now. It never stops for me. It wasn’t like I do one thing and then start another after. It’s all in one. (laughs) So, yeah, we have new music coming out really soon.

I’m sure you have built relationships with the other contestants on the show. Do you think you will be keeping in touch after this is over?

Oh my God, yes! 110%! Like I said before, even the first day we all met at GMA, everyone came in super humble, smiles all across the room. I remember having a conversation with David [Ross]. He’s just the sweetest, sweetest guy. Talking to Bonner [Bolton] because we’re both from Texas. Hearing his story, I was just completely moved and inspired and also captivated by his southern hospitality and charm. (laughs)

Me and Simone [Biles] are really, really close and have become the best of friends on the show. She makes me laugh a lot. I think we are so different but we are alike at the same time. We kind of balance each other out, which makes this experience even more fun. Then Rashad [Jennings], he’s like a big brother. I love him too. He told me after my contemporary piece that he really connected with it on a personal level and that I could come to him for anything if I wanted to vent.

Who on the DWTS cast is the biggest practical joker or always cracks everyone up?

I don’t know. Val always makes me laugh, personally. He’s actually a very funny human being. I feel like he’s the glue that holds everything together, in a way. There are so many different elements, but I do really appreciate that he has this way of reeling people in. It’s really comfortable and safe. Feeling like it’s a safe environment for them to be all that they are. And he is really, really funny. He’s always has me cracking up.

Also Simone. She’s always has me cracking up. Just little things she says. Sometimes I’m like, “Girl, how did you come up with that?” (laughs) “How did you come up with that?”

You are only 20 and have already accomplished so much with an award-winning music career and now this wonderful experience on DWTS. What else would you like to do in the future?

Coming off of this experience – really exploring myself on Dancing with the Stars – I feel has really opened many doors for me. Widened the range of expectations that I have for myself. There is a lot I now would love to do and know now I am capable of doing. I’d love to act and get into film. I really do enjoy stepping into another character every single week on Dancing with the Stars. I’d love to do that as a career choice.

Just something that I love. I am all about the arts, so I’ll continue to do my music obviously. I’m very into fashion. I’d love to have my own fashion line and my own empire. Yeah, I just want there to be nothing that I can’t do. I want to at least touch on many things, because you never know, that might be what I decide to do for the rest of my life. I don’t know, wherever life takes me, wherever God takes me. But I really want to cross over to acting, because I find that mesmerizing. I can really lose myself in it.

We did pick one fan question to ask. Amira Parker would like to know what your favorite 5H song is to perform in concert?

My favorite Fifth Harmony song to perform right now – because it can change since we have new music coming out – I have like five favorites right now. Let’s see… probably “Boss.” Yeah, every time I hear the “da-na-na-na,” the crowd for some reason always goes crazy on that song. It gets me super hyped. There’s never been a crowd that hasn’t had a great response to that song. I think it’s just the energy of it. It’ personally one of my favs, the choreography and that was kind of the beginning of the new Fifth Harmony. I don’t know if you guys saw a change, but from “Miss Moving On” to “Boss,” there was a switch. That was the moment where we actually started to grow up and grow into our womanhood. So, I love “Boss.”

For our final question, do you have a message for your fans?

To my fans, I love you guys incredibly. I can never thank you enough for how much you fulfill me and everything you’ve done in order to make me feel supported and confident within myself. You guys lift me up anytime I’m down. I would definitely say that all of my success, and our success, is because of you guys. I love you. Make sure you learn to love yourselves.

Just found out about Jaden Smith’s possible Kpop debut and all I can say is, it’s completely unacceptable especially after the whole issue with EXP EDITION– which I talked about here. Jaden Smith might be a POC, but that doesn’t give him the right to barge into another race’s sphere, especially considering the fact that Blacks are more established in the Western media industry than Asians. (Will Smith has played the lead role in many movies, while we can’t even get an Asian actress to play a Japanese woman in Ghost in the Shell. I rest my case.) 

That being said, while I am bitter about this, but my whole issue with Jaden isn’t actually his race.

It’s nice to see a Black person being given the opportunity to pursue his dreams, but I dislike the whole context and implications of it being Jaden Smith in particular. I mean, he’s already an established artiste in Hollywood (aka worldwide recognition). His debut is riding on his prior popularity. Plus, the kpop industry is already so saturated. There are so many Koreans out there who have the same dream as well, yet they lack the background and resources to pursue this dream. And they’re seeing foreigners taking their places.

Their individual races aside, both EXP EDITION and Jaden Smith are Americans/ Westerners. They’re not even from an ethnic group with shared cultural affinities to Koreans. That’s what really bothers me, because Kpop isn’t just songs written in Korean language. The Hallyu Wave is about culture, not just music. EXP EDITION and Jaden can release songs in Korean language, with Kpoo-esque concepts without having to label it as ‘Kpop’. That would not be an issue. I stress this once and I’m saying it again, it’s not about the language or the location, the Korean in Kpop is about the culture.

They might know the culture. But it’s impossible to truly understand a culture when one’s not part of it, mainly because you’re learning it from preconceived notions you already have and you’re learning it through the lense of the culture that had already shaped you. Some scholar said this. I can’t remember who. But there’s stuff to support this. I’m not bullshitting.  

On top of coming from an Asian society myself (I’m Singaporean), after studying Asian cultures on a deeper level, I can say that the whole wave of Globalization and Westernization is an issue a lot of Asian societies (ie. China, India, Japan, Korean, all the smaller SEAn states, etc) struggle with. It affects our concept of identity because many are unsure how far we should take the adoption of Western culture and ideas which are so commonly known as being the essence of ‘modern’ culture. But Kpop (and to a lesser degree, the Otaku culture) changes this because we now see a very Asian phenomenon taking center stage in being considered ‘modern’. And guess what! We can look to each other as icons of modernity now and not to the other end of the world. And yet Westerners (regardless of their race and status in America) are entering this sphere so easily now– remember that a lot of Korean trainees struggle a lot before debuting.

Hardwork and commitment are values deeply ingrained in East Asian societies since the early days (ie. birth of Confucianism). Trainees, and rookies even, suffer and go through shit to make a name for themselves. Plus, in Korea, many deeply respected groups all come from humble backgrounds and slowly build their way up. I mean it’s the same for everyone’s beloved BTS as well– they weren’t the most looked at group at debut but they’re world stars now. It’s the same with older groups as well– BEAST/HIGHLIGHT was a ‘recycled’ group but there’s a reason why they’re going strong when their initially-popular brother group is now in shambles. The fact that EXP EDITION is already receiving so much attention for being ‘the first all-American Kpop group’ and the fact that Jaden Smith, an already popular artiste who already has his fame and fortune, is trying his hands out here is, to me, is shitting on this aspect of Kpop and Korean culture in general.

To be honest, I am less pissed off with Jaden that I am with EXP EDITION, considering the whole context of Whitewashing Asian pop culture makes EXP EDITION a lot more unacceptable and since they’re also a social experiment (like what nonsense is that). Really, the issue I do have with him is the fact that he’s already an established American artiste who’s able to make use of his existing popularity. The idea of a popular Westerner coming into our sphere makes it seem that this is more of the West trying to outdo us even in our own domains, than it being seen as the West adopting something from us. Will it be a different story if it’s a less popular POC artiste or maybe even a typical POC from the street? Most probably! I mean, it’s nice to see the West taking up our culture as well, but it’s being done in a manner that it seems almost like appropriation.

I don’t want to hate on Jaden since I know he really fucking wants to be a Kpop artiste, but it’s just the whole context that bothers me. I am curious to see what he comes up with though. But in the case of EXP EDITION, I listened to them, but… lmao, no thanks.

pepcvina  asked:

I didn't want to request anything since your hands are still full with our trade...but I couldn't help it XD How about an AU with Zen and reader as co-actors? 😅😅❤❤👏👏

Please accept this request as a formal apology for taking so long with my part of our trade. (Okay, no but I really am sorry for the delay “OTL) Thank you for requesting!


It was Zen’s first major role to play in an actual film, and to be frank, he was nervous beyond belief. The actor only started out with small musicals, so acting for the big screen with different environments and sets and cameras everywhere was still a bit new to him. At the same time, however, Zen understood that he was able to climb up all the way here by his hard work and determination, and he felt rather proud about that.

The film was supposed to be a tragic romance fantasy about a human girl who fell in love with her Guardian Angel, while he fell in love with her. The angel knows that the woman’s death was approaching, but he can’t do anything about it, no matter how hard he struggles against fate, and this was the role that Zen was cast for.

“Oh, Zen! Good morning!”

The actor straightens up immediately when he hears your familiar voice greet him, and the young man enthusiastically returns your greeting. You were the shared lead role with Zen, playing as the woman in love with her Guardian Angel. Throughout the time the two of you worked together, Zen found himself becoming close with you. You were a pleasant person to both talk to and work with, and Zen couldn’t deny the way his heart would race whenever he was with you.

“I look forward to working with you today too.” You flash the actor a warm smile, and he practically melts on the spot.

“I am too,” Zen replies, pushing his thoughts away before the two of you go to get ready. He needed to remain professional.

As soon as the cameras start rolling, Zen is no longer Zen but the character he plays as, and he’s no longer just a co-worker to you but as your star-crossed lover. The scene that you and the rest of the cast and crew were filming was the climax of the woman’s and angel’s relationship, the angel coming to terms with the woman’s fate but still wanting to say a proper farewell.

“You mean everything to me,” Zen speaks as his character, the scripted words tumbling out of his lips with ease. He continues going through the lines, your own lines mixed in between, and as the scene continues, Zen’s character starts to become more and more overwhelmed. …And Zen is too.

Somehow, along the way, both Zen’s character and the actor himself slowly started to blend together, and the young man was unable to tell whose heart he was speaking from. Whose feelings he was trying to convey. Zen didn’t know why he did it, but as soon as the actor finishes with his lines, he suddenly cups your face and leans down to kiss you.

Your eyes widen with complete surprise; this wasn’t part of the script. Before you can even react, trying to figure out what the proper response should be to this situation, Zen pulls away from you, still looking at you like his character in love, or could it be…?

“Cut!” The director’s crisp voice rings loudly in the air, and both you and Zen are simultaneously broken out of your thoughts.

It’s obvious from the young man’s expression that he was panicking, although whether it was because he messed up the scene by doing something not on the script or from the action of suddenly kissing you itself, you couldn’t tell. Both you and the actor glance towards the director who doesn’t look upset all. In fact, he looks rather pleased.

“I liked that added kiss at the end. It really ties in the whole scene together. Let’s keep it in.”

Zen immediately goes to try to convince the director otherwise since you had no idea that the young man was ever going to kiss you, and he thought that you would be uncomfortable with having it shown on screen. Before Zen could utter a word though, you interrupt him with a single word. “Okay.”

After filming was over for the day, Zen tries to catch you before you leave. He calls out to you, and you stop in your tracks, tilting your head to the side as curiosity makes its way to your features. Zen gets straight to the point. “I’m sorry for earlier!” He exclaims perhaps a bit too loudly, and his flushed cheeks deepen in shades even more.

“It’s fine,” you reply. “It was just acting.”

The young man shakes his head. “No, that’s the thing. It wasn’t acting. I…I kissed you because I myself wanted to kiss you. Not as the character I was playing as. I’m really sorry!”

You remain quiet for a moment as you process Zen’s words, and the pieces slowly fall into place. Heat rises to your cheeks as you try to explain. “E-Even so, it’s still fine. I…admittedly kind of liked it.”

Zen finally brings his gaze to yours, and since this is how the situation is right now, he decides to just go for it and asks, “I know I skipped all the steps before by kissing you, but I was wondering if…maybe you can give me a chance to start at the beginning and go on a date with me once we’re done filming the movie?”

You respond without wasting a single second. “Yeah, I’d like that.”

Man I am so happy that Henrik finally got to talk about Even a little, honestly bless Morten and that interviewer who asked about Even's future. I wish he'd get to do a proper sit-down interview, you know he could talk about Even for an hour straight if you let him. I'm so grateful he got the role, with a character like that I think it's really really important that the actor genuinely loves who they're playing, and Henrik clearly loves Even.

Me too. I wish they ask him nothing but Even questions because he loves that character so much. It’s especially great to hear him talk about how much respect he has for him? Whether it’s trying to portray him respectfully or singling out how brave he is… that’s what gets me the most.

i’ve been playing wow a lot and have been spending time on my demon hunter and i have to say it’s amazing.

like honestly i never thought i would genuinely enjoy playing one because my role has always been a healer and that is what has felt best to me. i main a druid and all of the other dps classes just either felt clunky or weird to me. but here we are. playing a fiery redhead blood elf demon hunter. and absolutely destroying people in pvp. holy fuck.

i’ve played a healer for so long i forgot what it’s like to just TRAIN ENEMY HEALERS AND RIP THEM APART and it is so satisfying. every time i went into bgs as a healer it was like pulling teeth because no one wanted to cc or kill their healers but now? now?? i have so much mobility and INTERRUPTS and GOOD CC and the ability to CHASE ANYBODY DOWN and just??? why did i not do this sooner. feral is garbage atm and i am so glad i leveled my DH because i am having a ton of fun on him and thinking up cute stories in my head about him like i do with all of my chars, like one big group of friends/family that have all these experiences together, and the best part is that i am sufficient on my own!! i don’t need anybody!! i can tank shit as havoc in my demon form and survive through nearly anything!!

i feel like i have seen the light. it’s freedom! i wasted so much time trying to heal people in bgs and struggling with the disappointment and frustration of the rest of my random team not having the common sense to coordinate with each other but that doesn’t matter anymore because GUESS WHAT I’M THE DPS NOW BITCH IT’S ME I’M GONNA KILL YOUR HEALERS

anonymous asked:

Zarkon really does come across as the type who'd treat their child as property, and for all we know Haggar might be even worse. For all we know that might be the central conflict for Lotor, constantly feeling like he's being used and owned by everyone, maybe even our heroes in scenario where he is captured by them. A caged bird sort of character.

Also do you think Lotor would have magic this time around? In case he was WB, it could indicate that he’s trying to make a smaller scale wormhole method of transportation that Allura does, possible under the teachings of Haggar or better, behind her and Zarkon’s backs. They come across as hypocrite type of parents who’d do something but then forbid their -property- child from doing it.

I’d argue it’s a lot more than “For all we know” that Haggar tends possessive- look at how Haggar acted towards Shiro. She was pretty clear that since she’d invested her good time and effort in him, that he owed her, in her eyes- ignoring the fact that he had no say in whether or not he took her “assistance” and said assistance included medical torture and sawing his arm off.

My Top 10 K-Dramas of 2013 - What's Yours? [Spoiler Alert]

2013 is about to end and K-dramaland has been kind in bringing us so many goodies this year. Below are my Top 10 favs on the year (my favs so it might not be yours so please don’t judge) :

The Book of the House of Gu

While the ending was a bit meh because WHY THE HELL did Lee Seung Gi have to be such a chaebol like person in modern Korea and all when it could have ended less cheesily but other than that I really enjoyed the drama. Suzy and Lee Seung Gi had great chemistry and the other characters were really well executed to, like Choi Jin Hyuk the forest god daddy and Yoo Yoon Seok as the possessed hyung. And god how much I love these two actors now.

Empress Ki

This drama is amazing. It is still going on now (because it is those 50 ep super long dramas) but I am pretty sure I will cling on all 50 episodes. All the actors are superb and while I got a feeling Ha Ji Won and Joo Jin Mo are supposed to be the otp (because of the Ep 1 K-drama styled stare), I cannot help but love the chemistry and scenes between her and Ji Chang Wook (I love him but I am not being bias here). The puppy emperor is too adorable and right now there is more of a legit reason for the two to be together as they are both ally-less and alone in this freaky baddies infested court of intrigues. Like nearly everyone in this drama is up to something O.O I forsee myself going down with another ship after Reply 1994.

Good Doctor

One of the best medical K-dramas in a good long time and Joo Won was played the role of an awkward genius young doctor with savant syndrome perfectly. The background to his character made the drama all the more interesting and perhaps brought the idea of helping people in a medical drama without being that cheesy (because his character has more reason to stop people from dying and to believe in it stubbornly). Moon Chae Won was also great and jksjkdnslkakncklas it’s just a drama that I would highly recommend. It just makes me feel fluffy inside :)

I Can Hear Your Voice

I had my doubts when I first started because it had the oh we met when we were young thing going on but I think the age difference yet opposite to what you expect in the maturity of the characters really got my attention in the get go. Lee Jong Suk portrayed his mind-reader role really well and I like how the story made his use of it for justice less forced on like what you would expect from a show with a super power possessing lead. Lee Bo Young nailed the playful immature and at times condescending public defender who grew to care for others like she used to while keeping the sassy attitude. Also kudos to Kim Sohyun who played Lee Bo Young’s counter part really well, allowing the growth in the character to be all the more realistic. I also admire the work done for Lee Da Hee’s storyline as most second female leads get demoted to the love ruining villainess and cunning master of manipulation without much explanation or some really unrealistic back story. But this role had development and a reasonable story too so YAY! Also, this drama had one of the better K-drama endings in the year to boot :D

Nine: Nine Times Time Travel

So I heard an American Version is being made and I am not surprised. This drama was that good. Unlike the overused back in time model used by many dramas already, this drama actually had a murder mystery for us to follow, with the hero’s love life being tossed back and forth in the most gut wrenching ways possible with every change he makes to the reality keeping us on our toes. This was a great breakout role for Lee Jin Wook who portrayed our cold city man time traveller extremely well while bringing out his emotions at each discovery and change with ease. Jo Yoon Hee was also a pleasant surprise (for me because I never watched anything with her in it before) and her role as the cute but tough journalist was a breathe of fresh air from the pretty poor girl or stunning idol heroines as of late.

Queen of Ambition

Seriously, this drama is so melo, it made me have my doubts in humanity. If North Korea hates Kim Tae Hee for Stairway to Heaven, someone needs to smuggle this drama there and they will discover that things only get worst with Soo Ae. You think she will kill an old man? NO. She tells him his missing son is dead. You think she will blackmail someone with proof of dirty secretsNO. She does that with so much skill she can out pwn a manipulative CEO with blank sheets of A4 paper. She is that good. And there is Kwon Sang Woo, whose amazing acting brought the hero, the man blinded by love now out for revenge, so believable to the point when he was really out to get her, you are scared of him too. Basically you have two amazing actors on a show down of wits and life ruining. Splendid stuff to wet your pants from fear but also cry your eyes out for our poor second male lead of TVXQ‘s Yunho and second female lead Go Jun Hee who involuntarily gets stuck in the mix.

One of my favourite dramas of the year no doubt. While it was not super dramatic like Queen of Ambition or good at mystery as Nine (why you drag this hubby mystery for so long…), this was one of the best slice of life coming of age K-dramas ever. The emphasis on friendship and growing up together as a family was done fantastically, giving time for all characters to flesh them out into people that seem so real that we cannot help but love (maybe not to Yoo Yoon Seok’s love line though, oh well he left the show with all the woman who watched the drama dying to marry him) Go Ara was also really good, kicking all the critics away with a slipper (say that in Masan dialect XD) as the epic Na Jung who grew from wild girl to mature woman. Jung Woo also broke out as the reliable and manly Oppa for all Korean women (who will trash your house).


School 2013

Korea and its school problems have been touched on in many dramas but School 2013 has to be the most direct one of all. Apparently, there is even more work done in Korean schools now against bullying because of the success of the drama. And of course other than great acting from Choi Daniel and Jang Na Ra, School 2013 won’t be so great without the famous bromance between Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woobin, which led to a real life bromance off screen (and speculations that the two are a gay couple)

Secret

Oh betrayal. After watching Queen of Ambition and Secret, it really makes me wonder if that many people go to jail for their loved ones in Korea. Isn’t it guaranteed they will betray you and leave you to rot in there? Isn’t that the point? Oh well, I won’t complain since this drama is so good and this is needed to get it going! Ji Sung was AMAZING (wow you and your wifey are a on roll this year ;) ) and Hwang Jung Eum did such a good job. And Lee Da Hee AGAIN (you killing these second female lead roles girl) wowed me. Now thank you, Bae Soo Bin for doing so well in reminding me yet again that power ruins people in K-dramaland.

The Sun of My Master

The smartest drama of the year - seriously a female lead who sees ghost and a male lead who by touching her stops that from happening; THE PERFECT FORMULA FOR ENDLESS SKINSHIP OPPORTUNITIES!!! Now add in Kong Hyo Jin as the ghost seeing girl and So Ji Sub as the guy she must touch - BAM! Fans = dead. Ok, just to ensure we kill a few more fangirls, let’s also add in Seo In Guk and give him a super hot role and let Infinite's L be mini So Ji Sub! Other than an wonderful storyline, that’s enough reason to watch it, but seriously, watch it for the story XD

Thoughts on Chiharu Utsumi or: Why we all need his route!

“I don’t love you as a student. I love you as a man.”

Oh boy, where do I begin? I am still not over this story, and here I am, typing a character breakdown of this guy instead of the one I played. Actually, I’ve never been fond of student-teacher-relationship-stories. Having experienced this in my own school, I was actually very doubtful towards this part in Shinichi’s story, but I wanted to pull through anyway. So who could’ve ever thought I found myself falling hard for the cinnamon roll that is Chiharu Utsumi? And despite his role as the third party, there are many reasons as to why you will love him nonetheless.

Difficult Little Devil -- Ieyasu/MC

warnings/content: femdom, role reversal play, slight injury/blood/violence
summary: There’s no doubt in your mind that if the novelty of being powerless and pushed around ever wears off for him, he will turn from punished to punisher before you can even blink. But then, you wouldn’t be much of a partner to him if a little thing like that stayed your hand, right?

Few more notes.

As was with Harry, as difficult as it was to consider, I think that it might be less sabotage at this point and more about wanting to gain new audiences and not really giving a f*ck if old fans (Larries) stay - especially with Louies, who are fiercely loyal and will carry on supporting Louis. Bringing back BG will have, for a large part, a reaction that makes fans go even harder for him. New audiences don’t care if he nutted or not. Also I am unsure how big of a number Larries are anymore.

Again, as with Harry, I do think the career-aspect, and enabling that, plays a lot more important role than we necessarily consider. If you are allowed creative freedom and things you’ve not dare to dream of, but in exchange still need to stunt a little here and there, especially when that’s already been your life BUT now you get to have more pros for your creative career, maybe it’s just the price of it?

And finally, as with Harry, some promo choices were just plain awful and they shot themselves in the foot. Fans get mad and GP doesn’t much care about a fabricated story about how a song came about or who shagged who, but tell that to the industry.

Yes, Harry’s and Louis’ situation are different to an extent, but as a Larrie, I do look at them as a team and especially with them under the same label still, I think a lot of similarities are visible and I don’t want to see the same thing happen for both of thdm and yet judge it differently and call it completely different things.
