with harry himself exposing so much of a different side of himself along with his friends and gemma speaking about him, this whole magazine was a huge character witness against the Harry Styles™ that the general public thinks he is. Yes, us fans knew he was like this but now everyone can know and I think it’s so so great.
Tom Hiddleston is on the cover of the newest issue of Interview magazine, thanks to Taylor Swift. His brief relationship with the pop star shot him to new heights of fame, in part because the couple smiled for the paparazzi nearly every day for two months straight this summer. But does Hiddleston discuss Swift in the magazine? No, of course not — that’s “private.”
The interview was conducted by Hiddleston’s good friend Benedict Cumberbatch, and in the beginning of the discussion, Cumberbatch offered him the following:
… [T]here’s another weight of us being in the public eye, which is this presumption that, because your work and your promotion work is very public, your private life should be, too. And, without getting into a huge debate, I just want to say that I’m not going to ask questions about my friend’s personal life just because there are unsolicited photographs of him and a certain someone, in a relationship or together. I’m not going to get into that. So that door is closed, dear reader.
In response, Hiddleston “chuckled” and said, “Thank you.”
The benefit of doing interviews with a close friend is that he will promote the narrative that suits you best. Cumberbatch’s assertion that the countless published photos of Swift and Hiddleston were “unsolicited,” however, is ridiculous. The first photos of “Hiddleswift” were almost certainly solicited by someone — paparazzi shot the pair making out on a private beach in Rhode Island. Do paparazzi normally hang out on private beaches in Rhode Island, hoping that someday, sometime, they’ll see a celebrity? And let’s not forget Swift’s Fourth of July party — “Taymerica” — where Hiddleston was spotted proudly wearingan “I <3 T.S.” tank top for photographers.
When Swift and Hiddleston broke up earlier this month, Swift “sources”told Us Weekly that Hiddleston was the one pushing Swift to take the relationship public. Now Hiddleston’s friend is asserting that the publicity was completely out of his control. Both Swift and Hiddleston will continue to blame each other and outside sources for the frenzy surrounding their relationship, but we’ll always have their smiling faces in many, manypaparazzi photos to show they enjoyed the publicity at the time.
Seokjin- Seokjin would be the pretty boy that all the girls/boys fonded over because not only was he hot, he was sweet and conisderate. He was the type that would try to tutor you, even if he didn’t understand the lesson either. He’d hold doors open for people- yes, even if they were twenty feet away- and be President of a community service club. Out of all the sports, he’d be participating in swimming because of his broad shoulders. He’d also win Prom King….by a landslide.
Superlative- Most Handsome & Most Dependable
Yoongi- Yoongi would be the kid that takes all the musical classes and passes with flying colors, but sleeps in other subjects like math and history. He’d spend his lunch with a group of equally as cool music kids in the cafeteria, all sharing music and complaining about how all the money goes to the football team. Though, he’d still be popular because he’d be a varisty basketball player, even as a freshman. Probably wouldn’t date in high school, but if he did, it’d be the same girl/boy all throughout.
Superlative-Most Likely to Win a Grammy & Most Laid-back
Hoseok- This kid would be the brightest, happiest, and most spirit-filled student. He’d be a key part of pep rallies because of his optimism and extroverted qualities. But also, he’d pump the crowd up with a dance routine done by him and his school dance team (he’s the captain). Probably would be in drama club, but only ever gets funny roles with minimal lines. As he walks through the halls, he’d high five everyone and smile. He’d be very popular because of how kind he is.
Superlative- Most Spirit & Best Attitude
Namjoon- Obviously, he’d be the valedictorian. He’d be the goofy, clumsy, and adorable upperclassman that always trips over his shoe laces. Namjoon definitely be President of multiple clubs, like National Honors Society and Spanish Club. He’d also be an active member in Quizbowl, and even though he can’t play sports, he’d try random ones like Bowling and Ultimate Frisbee. All the girls/boys would have lowkey major crushes on him because of his kindness and intelligence. (Probably try foreign exchange one year.)
Superlative- Most Likely to Succeed & Most Clumsy
Jimin- Jimin would be the cute, shy kid that everyone has at least a tiny crush on. He’d be the sweetheart that would stop and help you pick up your books or help you hang flyers around the school. His passions would be art and dance, so he’d be President of the Art Club and also a leader on his dance team. He’d try sports, and possibly like running ones like cross country or track. Probably would dress cute and comfy all day, and he’d definitely let somebody borrow his hoodie if they were cold in class.
Superlative- Best Smile & Best Bromance (along with Taehyung)
Taehyung- Tae would be both the class clown and secret genius. He’d score all A’s with somehow never turning in homework. He would always be up to making someone laugh or smile, and teachers would love him because although he was a bit mischevious, he always made them little presents. He’d be in show choir, and also be a member of the photography club. He’d also be an amazing soccer player, taking the team to the playoffs every year.
Superlative- Class Clown & Best Bromance (along with Jimin)
Jungkook- Jungkook would be an all around smarty-pants and 3-sport varisty athlete. He’d play football in the fall, basketball during winter, and then track in the spring. He’d even be a member of the dance team. He would be the kid that gets 100s on his math tests but doesn’t understand how he is so good at it. All the girls/boys would have a crush on him, but he’d be so shy and not sure how to approach and/or talk to them. He’d also be a member of the show choir and art club.
Me:Nope, don't start sympathizing with the evil chinchilla-
Brain:But there's the likelihood that his belief system is just a product of a corrupt upbringing. He mentions being experimented on by the druids, altered into a literal living weapon, so casually. Like he's been made to believe that his own well-being and autonomy doesn't matter as long as it benefits Zarkon. And Haggar doesn't seem to trust him, maybe there's something to that.
Brain:Conditioning can be treated. In the right environment he might even change for the better. If he were made to truly understand the harm that Zarkon and his empire have wrought, as well as the value of life, maybe he could even choose to side with Team Voltron, try to help them.
Me:SENDAK DOES NOT DESERVE A REDEMPTION ARC-
Brain:I mean, yeah, and I'm probably interpreting him incorrectly, but I might not be. Just think about it
Me:I don't want to
Brain:He'd start out helping them from the background; taking out small Galra outposts, sneaking aboard cargo ships and destroying supplies, etc., and when he starts sending encoded info to the castle-ship they realize someone has been helping them. Eventually they cross paths during a particularly drawn out battle; the mysterious ally has been revealed to be Sendak, but he's bleeding out from the fight. They make the decision to bring him back and put him in a healing pod, figure out what to make of him later.
Me:Sigh. Just continue.
Brain:Okay, so they decide to keep him around as their ally under extreme scrutiny. He'd still be temperamental and haughty, especially at first, and he'd argue with the team (especially Shiro) about their tactics and training regimen. They'd frequently doubt him but he manages to earn their trust slowly. Time goes by and bonding moments ensue.
Brain:Pidge making him carry her around on his shoulders. Lance trying to joke with him and, after many failed attempts, finally getting a laugh out of him. Silent staring matches with Keith (somehow this is still progress). A tense sparring session with Shiro that ends in an equally tense heart-to-heart. Hunk letting him help with the heavy lifting when he's making repairs. Finding Allura during a low point thinking about her father and Sendak expressing remorse over the hurt he caused her. Talks with Coran over the differences in their military training.
Me:Y'know now that I think about it he never killed anyone at any point in the season
Brain:And I mean if Darth Vader and Vegeta can be redeemed I don't see why Sendak can't
nothing new but i just want to say that hobi is the purest most selfless soul i have ever known!!!! i love and adore him so so soooo much like!!! he really is so cute and pure and my heart just melts whenever i listen to him talking about anything 😿💘💘💘💘💘💘💘💘
Omega!Fushimi and Beta!Misaki in live in a world where omegas are expected to be with alphas and betas are expected to be with other betas.
Fushimi would probably be pretty pissed at being an Omega while
Yata’s a Beta, like I could definitely see Fushimi having a complex
about being ‘lower’ because of his genes. Maybe when they meet in
middle school they don’t actually know what they are because the
distinctions don’t start showing in any traceable way until slightly
later, like second or third year middle school is when people finally
start learning which they are. Yata’s all in the mindset that of
course they should both be Alphas because societal view of Alphas is
that they’re superior, they’re the strongest and most amazing and
Yata’s all for that. Fushimi doesn’t actually care and in fact would
probably rather be a Beta because Betas aren’t slaves to their
hormones and Fushimi has less than no interest in sex or babies. Then
when they finally discover their designations Yata’s a bit bummed at
not being an Alpha but Beta’s cool too (and maybe he’s secretly
relieved because the whole ‘breeding’ and 'sex’ part of being an
Alpha made him a bit embarrassed okay). He figures Fushimi’s probably
a Beta too and is surprised when he learns Fushimi’s an Omega. Yata
tries to be positive about it but they’re both secretly a bit upset,
because they both know that Omegas belong with Alphas, so Yata as a
Beta has no chance with Fushimi. Yata tells himself that it doesn’t
matter because he and Saruhiko are just friends anyway but the idea
of some guy coming in and taking Fushimi away pisses him off.
Fushimi’s just in a silent spiral of self hatred because he doesn’t
want to be someone’s baby machine and beyond that the only person he
wants to be with is Yata, which is impossible for him now.
So the two of them join Homra and a few people make comments about it
being a little odd that a Beta and an Omega are such good friends,
though no one thinks anything’s wrong about it. There are also a lot
of Alphas in Homra who keep looking at Fushimi funny and even though
no one would ever do anything to him it makes Yata a little on edge,
like what if Saruhiko finds his Alpha here. Fushimi just feels sick
to his stomach half the time because his body keeps reacting to all
these Alphas but his mind wants nothing to do with any of them. And
the whole time here he is with Yata, who he wants and can’t have, and
finally he snaps and joins Scepter 4. I could see that affecting Yata
double this time too, because Munakata’s probably an Alpha and Yata
can’t help but wonder if this is the guy who’s going to hook up with
Fushimi. Munakata though only wants Fushimi for his talents, Fushimi
being an Omega is irrelevant to him and that’s one of the things
Fushimi likes about him (not that he admits to liking anything about
Eventually the whole reconciliation happens and they move back in
together but it’s still all awkward because they’re both super in
love and hyper aware that they aren’t, technically, compatible.
Fushimi normally takes heat suppressants so he doesn’t have to worry
about inconvenient sex needs but maybe he forgets one day due to
being so busy at work and Yata gets home to find Fushimi just
half-naked and sweating in bed. Yata’s super worried and tries to
tend to him but Fushimi just grabs him and kisses him. Yata
immediately pulls away because he thinks he’s taking advantage of
Fushimi in this state. Fushimi keeps reaching for him though and
maybe Yata does end up giving him a handjob or something because
Fushimi’s so desperate. Later when Fushimi’s back in a more calm
state of mind Yata apologizes, like he knows he’s not an Alpha and
probably shouldn’t touch Fushimi like that but the truth is the idea
of someone else touching Fushimi like that pisses him off.
Fushimi finally tells Yata to shut up and stop apologizing, Yata only
did what Fushimi wanted him to do, what Fushimi’s always wanted him
to do, because Fushimi doesn’t need some ridiculous Alpha. Fushimi
admits that he doesn’t care what his stupid genes want, he
wants to be with Yata. It would probably be hard for them for a while
afterward, like I don’t think any of their clans would judge (they’d
probably all be 'about time’) but sometimes when they’re out together
random Alphas will smell Fushimi and just glare at Yata. Fushimi gets
pissed off at getting sniffed pretty quickly and Yata just grabs him
and gets all protective because fuck off, he’s mine. (Also depending
on how we’re doing the Beta thing here, like if it’s a situation
where only Alphas can impregnate Omegas that’s just an extra bonus as
far as Fushimi’s concerned, all the sex with Misaki he wants and no
worries about stupid babies that he has no interest in. Imagine some
random Alpha trying to win Fushimi over by mocking Yata for not being
able to breed Fushimi like a proper Alpha would and doesn’t Fushimi
want someone who can give him the children that he’s probably always
desired, and Fushimi and Yata just share a look and start laughing
because the idea of Fushimi being all starry eyed over kids is
