you said there was a similarity between clarke and bellamy in 4x01, but i couldnt see it. what do you mean by that?
okay, let me preface this by saying that i absolutely loved 4x01. everything i expected i got. this is the kind of premiere that i always wanted because it did so much with so little. from the directorial choices (thanks dean for doing gods work) to the background music etc, it perfectly sets up the season’s arc already as well as establishes the tone
of it (doom + hope), and i would be lying if i didn’t admit that i almost felt like dying. from the looks of it, season four seems to be the season we’ve all been waiting for and i am so fucking ready for it.
second: i don’t think you’ll ever know how glad i am that you didn’t say ‘parallel’. i am a film student and i am so sick of that word lol (thx fandom). this might just be me but i
personally think it’s not a particularly productive way to call
everything a parallel. there is quite a difference between having a similar scene and an actual parallel that you will immediately catch. i feel that most people in this fandom don’t seem to understand the difference since they keep using that term in cases in which it should not be used. so yea, kudos to you for not going with that one. either way though. yes, i did
say that there are obvious similarities (or at least that’s how i look
at them) in how the writers decided to deal with bellamy’s and clarke’s
respective individual arcs and how they managed to fuse them together by
the end of the episode, and i’m gonna stand by that interpretation for now, because it makes the most sense to me.
(i dont have much time so i’mma have to keep this short)
i found 4x01 to be fascinating on many levels, from the intense focus on interpersonal relationships to the political/universal conflicts/issues. we get a lot of information in this ep alone and it’s all bewildering as much as it is exciting, because shit is gonna hit the fan real fucking fast. what caught my attention regarding bellamy and clarke though is this: you have an interplay between the visual, emotional camerawork and the
written, intellectual narrative (text) that creates an expression of
continuation within their personal relationship.
let’s start with the obvious: both characters deal with their dead loved ones in this episode (lexa and gina).
Real quick- although many of the characters singing these songs ARE the type I’ve connected them to, that’s not the case for all of them.
Oh, and I’ve made it past the 500 follower mark! You guys are the best!
ISTJ- “Let It Go” from Frozen
Most ISTJ Line- “Don’t let them in / Don’t let them see / Be the good girl you always have to be”
How awesome is it that probably the most unfairly maligned type can lay claim to Disney’s modern anthem? Elsa embodies the ISTJ and so does her power ballad; she sings of being haunted by her past (dominant Si), and being forced to conceal her feelings (tertiary Fi). And although she declares herself to be free, Elsa, like many ISTJs, continues to struggle with the expectations of her family and kingdom. “Let It Go” is a powerful look into the most personal thoughts of a private person’s life, and should be a reminder never to judge too quickly.
ISFJ- “Beauty and the Beast” from Beauty and the Beast
Most ISFJ Line- “Both a little scared / Neither one prepared / Beauty and the Beast”
Simple, elegant, and romantic, “Beauty and the Beast” captures the love and affection that ISFJs strive for in their lives. Although falling in love might have been done millions of times in the past (dominant Si), that doesn’t make it any less magical for Belle and Beast (auxiliary Fe). Even if Belle weren’t an ISFJ, the song would still perfectly suit such a quietly sophisticated type.
INFJ- “Friends on the Other Side” from The Princess and the Frog
Most INFJ Line- “I can read your future / I can change it ‘round some, too”
I want to establish now that songs sung by antagonists aren’t meant to vilify the types I’ve attached them to. INFJs are often considered to be almost supernatural, and while I don’t think such claims carry much weight, the type often can come across as being a bit otherworldly (dominant Ni). Similar to Doctor Facilier (who, to be clear, is NOT this type), INFJs can be rather charming (auxiliary Fe and inferior Se) and are quite adept at manipulating people should they choose to do so.
INTJ- “Be Prepared” from The Lion King
Most INTJ Line- “So prepare for the coup of the century / Be prepared for the murkiest scam”
Scar is all about long term planning- something that the INTJ will find greatly relatable (dominant Ni). “Be Prepared” is an ode to the relentless pursuit of power, even if that means killing a brother and an innocent child like Simba (auxiliary Te). This isn’t to say that every INTJ is misdirected or evil, but rather that each will do whatever suits their personal morals and experiences (tertiary Fi). Scar’s morals just so happen to accommodate fratricide.
ISTP- “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan
Most ISTP Line: “We must be swift as a coursing river / With all the force of a great typhoon”
This song reeks of physicality, which is well suited to the action oriented ISTP (auxiliary Se). Mulan, an ISTP, strives to find her place in the army because it works with her overarching plan to protect her father (tertiary Ni and inferior Fe). Ultimately, her ingenuity allows her to surpass all of her peers and retrieve the arrow at the top of the pole (dominant Ti), proving that the ISTP can do whatever they set their mind to.
ISFP- “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas
Most ISFP Line- “Come roll in all the riches all around you / And for once, never wonder what they’re worth”
“Colors of the Wind” is simultaneously spiritual and sensual, a combination that only an ISFP like Pocahontas can pull off. Aside from asking John Smith to appreciate the beauty of the world around him (auxiliary Se), Pocahontas also forces him to look inward and reevaluate his personal values (dominant Fi). “Colors of the Wind” was one of the easiest songs to determine for this list because it truly captures the spirit and ethereal quality of the ISFP.
INFP- “Reflection” from Mulan
Most INFP Line- “When will my reflection show / Who I am inside?”
Although people of every type ponder themselves and where they fit in the world, the INFP likely does so most of anyone. Mulan struggles to understand not only who she is (dominant Fi), but also how she can be herself and still uphold the honor of her family (tertiary Si). “Reflection” speaks to the search for an authentic identity that so many of us, but INFPs especially, find familiar.
INTP- “God Help the Outcasts” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Most INTP Line- “I thought we all were / The children of God”
First, I have to admit that I’ve never seen The Hunchback of Notre Dame- it’s the only movie on this list I have yet to watch (it’s on my Netflix queue though!). I also want to acknowledge that this might seem to be an unusual choice, because INTPs are often wrongly stereotyped as computer nerds with no social skills. Here’s my rationale. In this song, Esmerelda ponders the ways in which God operates (dominant Ti), and devotes her prayers to others (inferior Fe) amidst the splendor of an ancient church (tertiary Si). This song captures the complexity of the INTP’s mind and the generosity of its spirit. It is a raw and beautiful song that is unafraid to take on serious subject matter.
ESTP- “A Whole New World” from Aladdin
Most ESTP Line- “I can show you the world / Shining, shimmering, splendid”
*Swoon* Who wouldn’t want to be whisked away on a magic carpet ride? I imagine “A Whole New World” speaks particularly to the ESTP who has been long confined to a life of boredom and is eager to see what the world has to offer (dominant Se). The song is also incredibly romantic and has some, shall we say, sexual undertones that suit the type (tertiary Fe). Like the ESTP, Aladdin teaches us to be unafraid of the unknown and free ourselves, if only for a moment, from the monotony of everyday life.
ESFP- “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” from Lilo & Stitch
Most ESFP Line- “There’s no place I’d rather be / Than on my surfboard out at sea”
Just as ISTJs and ESTJs are often unfairly labelled as boring, the ESFP is often stereotyped as a shallow and fickle type. “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” reflects the truth about the type- that with a little bit of daily adventure (dominant Se), the ESFP is perfectly happy devoting itself to family and friends (auxiliary Fi). This devotion to family is a theme that runs throughout Lilo & Stitch, and it underscores the real nature of the ESFP.
ENFP- “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin
Most ENFP Line- “I’m in the mood to help you, dude / You ain’t never had a friend like me”
Anybody with an ENFP friend can attest to the fact that said person is probably in a league of their own. Quirky, quick-witted, and funny (much like Genie), the type will always keep you on your toes (dominant Ne). What makes the ENFP so great, however, is that they also make loyal friends who will stick by your side through and through (auxiliary Fi and inferior Si). They’ll keep you laughing and they’ll stay loyal to you forever; what more could you ask for in a friend?
ENTP- “Pink Elephants on Parade” from Dumbo
Most ENTP Line: “Pink elephants on parade / What’ll I do? What’ll I do? / What an unusual view!”
This song is TRIPPY. But let’s face it, the ENTP, even those who don’t imbibe in drugs or alcohol, has a very bizarre and wonderful quality that allows them to see the world from perspectives the rest of us could scarcely imagine (dominant Ne). The shapes and colors that play visually during this sequence are also sure to engage the intelligence and complexity of the ENTP’s mind (auxiliary Ti). Both the song and the type are very, very out there, but in the absolute best way possible.
ESTJ- “Heigh Ho” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Most ESTJ Line- “To dig dig dig dig dig dig dig is what we really like to do / It ain’t no trick to get rich quick”
Although every type can claim both spectacularly hard working and shockingly lazy individuals, my guess is that most ESTJs are found in the former camp. Aside from being a classic (auxiliary Si), “Heigh Ho” is a testament to the fruits of laborious effort (dominant Te). Something else particularly appealing about this choice is the variety of the dwarfs who sing it; although all of them, like all ESTJs, are hard workers, there is also considerable variety amongst personalities in the group (tertiary Ne).
ESFJ- “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid
Most ESFJ Line- “I wanna be where the people are / I wanna see, wanna see them dancing”
Just like Ariel, for better or for worse, ESFJs feel a strong need to belong to some type of community (dominant Fe). In The Little Mermaid, Ariel puzzles (often incorrectly) over what the function of relics from the human world are meant for, all with the intention of extending herself into that society (inferior Ti and auxiliary Si). At its core, “Part of Your World” is beautiful and sweet, an embodiment of the ESFJ’s vivacious and determined nature. (Note: Ariel is not an ESFJ).
ENFJ- “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from The Lion King
Most ENFJ Line- “I’m gonna be the main event / Like no king was before”
Much like the popular and respected ENFJ, Simba is keen to take his place atop the hierarchy of his kingdom. He’s a bit mischievous but extremely charming, something that can also be seen in most people with the type (tertiary Se and dominant Fe). Additionally, Simba doesn’t plan to rest on the traditions of his predecessors; he has a vision of the way he wants things to be and is unafraid to challenge the norms to reach that place (auxiliary Ni).
ENTJ- “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid
Most ENTJ Line: “Now it’s happened once or twice / Someone couldn’t pay the price / And I’m afraid I had to rake ‘em ‘cross the coals”
What a deliciously evil song. Though she may hide it with her sensuality (tertiary Se), Ursula is unafraid to use whatever methods she can to get achieve her ultimate goals (dominant Te and auxiliary Ni). What’s awesome about this song is that though it might be sinister and manipulative, it’s also undeniably fun; I have a feeling that, whether a villain or not, most ENTJs have a sneaky sense of humor that they pull out at the strangest times.
Her back rested against the soft worn cushions that laid abandoned in the childhood treehouse. She knew it wasn’t good for her back to be lying on the floor of the old treehouse and that even being in the tree house was dangerous because she was risking being seen, but she didn’t care. The treehouse was her true solitude. She could listen to the wind whistle against the trees and feel the murky air stick to her skin. It brought her back to her days where her, Tori, and Willie would play for hours in the treehouse and sometimes getting caught sleeping in the pile of cushions. She had drifted off to sleep after she had calmed down from the breakfast incident. Her face burned in embarrassment, longing, and shame. She knew that if she let the situation get under her skin, her father won. She needed to accept it, regardless of the outcome, whether or not her and Bucky would eventually be in love. They still needed to play the part of the loving engaged couple.
Tied in Silk- Blood Sweat And Tears Smut (JiminXReader)
It all felt surreal. Everything. The fact that you knew an idol. The fact that you were friends with them. The fact that the 2 of you constantly talked to each other. Each occurrence seemed more improbable than the last. And this one was no exception.
You sit on your couch staring at the college textbook in front of you. Words and numbers fill your head in a mindless jumble. You groan and smack your head on the desk in front of you, muttering more than a few innovative curses to yourself. Why you thought studying abroad in Korea for few years was a good idea remains a mystery.
Your stomach growls in its ever present hungry state. What even is your stomach? A vortex that consumes all types of junk food? You aren’t sure but what you do know is that you need to eat something if you want to be able to focus. You gaze at the kitchen which seems so far from your seat on the couch… so fucking farrrr.
You push through though because the only thing worse than exercise is a hungry stomach. Groaning, you drag your lazy ass to the kitchen and open the fridge door. You’re greeted by a shelf of soju, a dozen eggs, some milk, and cabbage. As much as you appreciate a few soju bottles you can’t possibly drink just soju as a snack and the rest of the items are not very appetizing to eat raw. You go over to your pantry but you’re greeted by yet another near-empty space. A pack of ramyun is all that is left and with a sigh you go to the stove to boil some water.
The doorbell suddenly rings at your apartment door. Hangry and annoyed, you lower the flame of the cooking ramyun, walk over to yank the door open and demand “What do you want?”
To your surprise Jimin, as in THE Jimin, is standing outside your door with a slightly amused look on his face. You scan your attractive idol friend up and down, scrutinizing him with a glare. “Well hello to you too,” he answers with a smirk. You roll your eyes but can’t help but smile back, “You interrupted my ramyun making, of course I’m gonna be annoyed but, with all due respect, come right on in,” you make a grand gesture towards the interior of your dingy apartment.
“You’re certainly catty and sarcastic today,” Jimin notes. “Thanks, it’s a side effect of living alone and staring at a textbook for hours. It’s called acute hyper psychotextbookosis or in basic terms the insanity that follows studying; savagery is the response to it,” you ramble off.
“I see you’ve been studying your medical terms doctor-nim,” he bows cutely. “Good job detective, now would you mind explaining why you’re here, how you got here, and what I’m supposed to do now? I know I’m great company and all but I doubt you came here because you missed your pal,” you evaluate.
“Geezus, Y/N, you don’t even give me an opportunity to say a word. Always the smart-ass. Would you mind if I sat down before I gave you the story,” Jimin asks you politely and you nod. The two of you sit on the couch and he begins his rant:
“I don’t know if you’re aware, but we just started our promotion for our new album Wings and our title song Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Well, ever since the teaser released I kept seeing messages from this foreign ‘fan’ on sns forums and they’re all like: ARMY FANS WE CAN DO THIS BTS HWAITING! ARMY LET’S CRUSH THE OTHER GROUPS. JIMIN STOP HURTING ME SO MUCH. BABY JIMIN, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. UGH JIMIN I WILL RUIN YOU THE WAY YOU RUIN ME.”
“That escalated quickly. What drugs are these fans even on?” You wonder aloud. Jimin simply laughs and goes on with his story
“At first, I didn’t think much of it, just them being a fan. Slowly it got to the point where they posted really disgusting fanfictions. Normally, I’m don’t mind the stuff fans write but this was sickening things. Again, I just ignored it. But now, I think the fan is stalking me because pictures of places where normally no one knows I go to pop up with my address at that moment tagged. I keep getting obsessive fan mail and really objectifying pictures sent to me and I think they were trying to catch me back at my dorm after the dress rehearsal and performance today and tonight. I just needed a place to hide out and I saw your friend, Jikyo, at a coffee shop and got your address from her since I figured I could come here. Would you mind if I hid out here for a few? I already talked to my manager and members, they thought this was the best option… whaddaya say??”
You hum under your breath as if contemplating. “Wellllll…” you stretch, “I personally think you brought some of this upon yourself. Your title song is literally about BDSM and they always give you these super weird revealing clothes. Don’t you think you’re just begging to become a sex toy?”
Jimin frowns at your response, “So that’s a no?”
“I mean, I don’t think I’d mind you staying here but your concept is very… provocative, and I just think this should be an expected response from fans. You attack their fragile souls you know?” You explain, failing to maintain your poker face.
Jimin catches on to your teasing and raises an eyebrow, “You certainly happen to know how I affect my fangirls and fanboys. Not to mention how aware you are of our concept. Are you sure you’re not the one making our concept sexual?”
“Please,” you scoff, “Not even the most innocent bunny could convince me that shoulder throw of your sparkly suit on stage is a wardrobe malfunction.”
“You watch me perform?” His smirk grows.
“Correction. Jikyo does. Avid fangirl she is… She always insists I watch your songs and ‘support my friend’ but secretly I think she just wants me to become an ARMY as well. I really don’t bother with your group… Why would I watch a Jimin all perfect in front of the camera when I could just talk to the real idiot without all the disgusting makeup. Don’t you remember how we met in the first place? I assure you I’m not one of your psycho fangirls.”
Jimin laughs as he recalls that particular event. “I didn’t think you’d be such an aggressive drunk. Seriously, all I did was bump into you at that cafe shop and you got all up in my face, calling me a pretty boy with zero manners. When I tried to apologize and help you up, you cussed me out for assuming you were, and I quote, ‘a damsel in distress’. I still can’t believe you had the guts to do that even after knowing I was famous. I was highly impressed,” he tells you begrudgingly.
“Yeah, well, I was in a mood after exam results and I wasn’t gonna handle anyone’s shit,” you mutter without the slightest hint of embarrassment.
“You know, this I why I insisted on being your friend. You don’t treat me like an idol and you’re not afraid to shred people into bits,” he tells you.
“That’s me, chimchim. Forever the ice princess. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to my dumbass textbook and notes,” you start to get up but he pulls you back down by your waist onto his lap.
“You’re too stressed Y/N… Loosen up,” he mumbles in your ear, too close for comfort. You can tell he’s trying to spur a reaction out of you and you know that 2 can play at this game. You turn to face him and stare blankly into Jimin’s eyes. You decide to use the element of surprise.
“No,” you say and lean forward to give him a chaste kiss before pulling back. You can feel his grip loosen slightly as his pulse rises and you attempt to wriggle out of his grip. Almost instantly, he recovers and pins you back down. You have to admit, he’s perseverant and you don’t mind this more-than-friends thing going on either.
He IS a hot idol for goodness sake. You’d be lying if you said you never felt sexually attracted to him.
Jimin is the one that surprises you this time by pressing his lips against yours. Your eyes widen and your mind starts to calculate the repercussions of kissing back. Before you make your decision, Jimin’s lips leave yours. “Payback,” he says with a smug look. “I think not,” you reply, not about to let him win this one. You pull him back down with more force and crash your chapped lips against his soft ones.
Things start to get more heated than anticipated and you hear Jimin growl in arousal. Your own smirk grows at this and you leave practically no space between you and him.
“How did we even end up here,” you mutter in between the uncalled for kiss.
“You started it,” Jimin says in an accusing tone.
“Yeah and you didn’t make any attempt to stop it did you know?”
“Why should I? You’re beautiful, sarcastic, smart, and so dominating,” he attempts to flatter you.
“You are aware that I can’t blush right? And was that last part supposed to be hinting something?”
“That’s up to you babe,” Jimin answers as he moves to kiss your jaw and neck
“I hate the word babe,” You inform him.
“Okay sweetheart,” he corrects.
“That’s only slightly less gross. I’ll take it though… and Jimin?”
“Hmmm?” he asks as moves down your collarbone, occasionally biting at the skin there.
“I am the dominant type,” you whisper into his ear. You grab his purplish hair suddenly and pull him back up to kiss him harshly. You push him off you, surprised you could even cause him to budge. You’re well aware of how built he is and you figure he is just letting you have your way with him.
You back him up towards your bedroom door and press him up against it, using all your energy to kiss him. You don’t let him easily have it. Your kisses sting and every time you pull away his lips are more swollen.
Your hands move on their own towards the buttons on his shirt. As you undo them, Jimin’s hand reaches behind to open the door to your bedroom door. It clicks open and you force him all the way back to the edge of your bed.
“Blindfold me,” he asks. You smile a sickly sweet smile at him. You grab a silk scarf and tie it around his eyes. He falls to his knees before you and extends his wrists. You realize what Jimin wants: he wants you to keep him blinded and bound the way he is in Blood, Sweat, and Tears. The thought makes you slightly uncomfortable. For all your talk about not blushing, the idea of doing what you are about to do makes you embarrassed.
However, you decide ignore the sane, normal part of you that wants to stop with whole roleplay shit and just let your wild side say: the heck with it, are you really going to turn down an opportunity to be with your dumb but totally fuckable idol friend. Even the rational part of you can’t argue that.
For some odd reason, you realize you have an abundance of silk scarves just waiting to be used for this very moment. You bind his wrists and order Jimin to get up. He does as you say with ease and once he’s up you tilt his chin up harshly and pull it towards your lips. It was at times like this you appreciated your height of 5’8”, when you’re at the perfect height for a kiss.
You slide the shirt off Jimin’s shoulders, barely ghosting your fingers down his chest and torso, slowly and deliberately avoiding the places he wants your touch the most. You can feel him breathing heavier and you already notice his fist clenching.
“Do you want to see me?” You ask softly in his ear. He whimpers slightly. “I said, do you want to see me?” You repeat yourself. “Yes… Please,” he begs.
“But you’re blindfolded aren’t you. If you want me, you can’t see me, you can’t touch me. You can only have what I give you, you know that right?” You tell him.
“Well fuck…” Jimin mutters and you can tell that he’s beginning to regret what he asked of you. On the other hand, you are starting to enjoy this more.
You force him back onto the bed and climb onto the mattress as well. “Undress me,” you instruct Jimin. His face scrunches up in confusion. With his hands tied and eyes covered you can see him trying to comprehend how you expected him to remove your clothes.
It takes Jimin a moment, but he does exactly what you want. With less difficulty than you anticipate, he drags your top up with his mouth, brushing his teeth along your torso. When he can push it up no more, you decide to help him and peel it off your body. Jimin moves back down to the waist of your athletic shorts, pulling it off quickly in an almost savage manner. He trails his lips back up to the line of your undergarments, but you push him off, not wanting to let him have you just yet. You are also extremely thankful for the blindfold on Jimin because you found your daisy duck underwear and mismatched heart bra humiliating. Jimin wouldn’t let you live that one down.
You grab him by the belt of his pants and unfasten the buckle quickly. “Someone’s done this before,” he mutters, slightly annoyed. You find his territorialism amusing but you don’t let it show. “I don’t see how that matters… and did I allow you to speak, Jimin?” you ask with a tug of his hair. “Maybe I shouldn’t be so easy on you…” you muse aloud. Jimin shakes his head violently, desperate to avoid your teasing. His dramatic response causes you to almost laugh and you try hard to stifle it. (lolol bepsae)
You continue to drag his pants down then push him back down onto the mattress. Jimin’s palms are clenching tighter now and restraint shows on his creased forehead. You straddle his torso and slide your palms up and down his shoulders and chest, moulding the muscles and skimming the sides. Leaning forward, you take his lips between your teeth and tug at it causing Jimin to groan. You press your lips down his jawline and mark his neck.
“Your turn,” you whisper. Jimin immediately latches his mouth onto your neck, biting and your own hand goes behind your back to unclasp your bra. You pull apart from Jimin and fling the bra halfway across the room. When you lay your body on top of his, Jimin freezes, hyper aware of the fact that a certain article of clothing was just discarded.
“Shiiit,” he whines to himself. You kiss Jimin some more and hold him down on the bed. You move yourself down to the foot of the bed and in one swift movement you pull Jimin’s boxers off. You hear Jimin gasp as you grab his length and wrap your mouth around it. A string of curses fall from Jimin’s puffy lips and sweat starts to cover his forehead. His fingers dig into his palms and he tries his best to remain still under your command. Your tongue slides up and down, from the base to the tip. You hollow your cheeks and suck in harshly and Jimin moans out loud.
“Shhh,” you tell him and continue moving your hand on his shaft. You hum against his cock and the vibrations course throughout Jimin’s body and he muffles a moan. You decide you’ve teased him enough and let go of your grip on his soaked hardness. You take off the last piece of clothing on you and your own core starts to ache with need. Still, you want to to stretch this a little longer… you slowly slide up and hover your hips over Jimin’s face. Without warning, you press your wet center on his mouth. His tongue swipes across you and he pulls at the nub with his lip. You nearly collapse then and there but instead your grab Jimin’s and rock back and forth riding his tongue. “Holy fucking shit,” you mutter as the feeling intensifies. You feel yourself getting closer and you reluctantly move off him to finally, finally give both of you what you want.
Slowly, just to tease Jimin, you lower yourself down on his length. “Please, I want to see you,” he begs. You can tell how much pain he’s in by glancing at his red nails that are caked with blood from digging into his palms. Feeling merciful, you untie his blindfold and lean down to his face to kiss his eyelids.
You roll your hips back and forth easing the tension in both of you. Jimin lets out a sigh of relief and you moan Jimin’s name.
“Fuckkk, oh god, that feels so fucking good, please don’t stop” he pants. You whimper, unable to generate a full response. You slow your movements just the slightest and almost immediately Jimin thrusts his hips upward into you harder to soothe his pain. You nearly move off him but his eyes widen in fear that you’re going to leave him like that. Chuckling, you pin him back down and rock harder and faster. Your entire body is covered in sweat and you let Jimin run his tongue all over your nipples and up to your neck.
You feel yourself getting closer and closer as the pressure coils up at your center. “Shit, Jimin-ah I’m so fucking close. Fuck me right there!” You nearly yell as you convulse around him, riding the waves of a high ecstasy. Just as you finish, Jimin cries out loud and he comes inside you, shuddering at the intensity of the feeling. You pull yourself off of him and lean down to clean the mess with your tongue.
Your body collapses besides Jimin, exhausted and spent in the most earth-shattering way possible. Jimin extends his hands towards you and your eyes shift down to his still-bound wrists and with a smirk you undo. You press your lips to the bruises on his wrist; a rather chaste gesture after what you 2 had just done but it still made you feel slightly self conscious.
“What the fuck did you do to yourself?” You ask Jimin as you notice his fingers covered in blood and his slightly bruised lip. “Sweetheart, do you have any idea how insane you made me. I couldn’t bear your teasing but I knew if I said anything you would’ve walked out on me.”
“Still, why do you look like you committed murder when all you did was have sex,” you mumble.
“I honestly think that murder would be the less sinful of those two,” he chuckles. “Besides, the best way to have sex is with blood, sweat and tears.”
“What kind of loser makes a reference with their own song,” you counter as a smile tugs at your lips. “Also, what kind of kinky bdsm shit are you into, Jimin.”
“I should be asking you that, dominatrix. You looked so fucking hot in control like that babe,” he whispers huskily into your ears. You cringe at the word babe once again. “I told you not to call me that Chimchim. Besides, I said I was dominating, not sadistic,” you inform him
“I think my dick begs to differ Y/N-ah. Don’t worry though, you’ll look much hotter tonight.”
You furrow your eyebrows, “What’s tonight? Don’t you just have your stage?” you ask.
“You know for a girl getting her masters you sure lack common sense,” Jimin muses.
“What the fuck are you saying Jiminnn, what’s tonight” you half whine.
Jimin brings his lips to your ears and whispers something as your eyes widen.
“Round 2, babe. But this time, I’ll be in charge.”
And it’s in that moment you realize that your ramyun is burning in the fucking kitchen.
I’m taking a huge risk by posting this. At this point, anything could happen to me or my account so it’s best that you know the truth. First disclaimer: I am in NO way whatsoever doing this for attention. Second: Believe me or don’t believe me (and if you don’t, that’s no excuse to be rude). Third: I can’t and won’t give away who my insider is.
1. Are the baby rumors fake?
Yes. Every rumor you’ve heard about the “baby” being real is absolutely fake. Not true. Never existed in the first damn place. No matter what you’ve read or heard: fake. Doesn’t matter what newspaper, magazine, tweets or website.
2. Will they actually make Briana pregnant?
First of all, you can’t force someone to be pregnant (like, actually impregnate them). That’s wrong in so many ways.
My insider overheard a phone call discussing the options that management could do to really make Briana seem pregnant. It was on speaker and they heard a woman shouting.
The person who was talking to the woman said: “Just get Bri in a baby bump suit and done.”
The woman argued: “No, no woman can go from skinny to pregnant in a day.”
Other person said: “Just erm, make her gain some puppy fat. Ya know, cakes and shite on the shoppin’ list and bam she’ll be pregant.”
Woman retorted: “Yeah, pregnant with junk food. And nah, we can’t. She’s a model and she’s on a diet.”
(Briana would refuse to actually put on weight, so giving her a diet of greasy snacks and junk food was out of the question; apparently she wants to be a model and she’s taking no such risks. The fake baby bump would be too obvious as well.)
Believe what you want. My insider was taking no such risks of recording this. They were already hiding, and that alone would’ve gotten them into trouble.
3. What’s the worst thing they could possibly do for this fandom? Force a live interview for Louis to “admit” he’s going to be a “father”?
The worst thing my insider has heard SO FAR is that Harry and Louis will get into a fight (staged, of course). A huge heated argument about “the baby” that would make us believe they’re not on good terms anymore. However, given all the bullshit that has occurred, this seems unlikely; Harry and Louis would both never agree to such a thing.
A live interview? Well, management could easily do anything.
4. Why start such a rumor? Does this have anything to do with Elounor? And how did it happen/work?
My insider states that this is to conceal Louis’ sexuality, as well as earn more publicity for One Direction. They’re playing Louis off as “100% straight.”
We all remember Elounor (Eleanor Calder + Louis Tomlinson). Miss Calder was Louis’ “girlfriend” for four years. They “split up” in March 2015. (As I am giving you this information, this is knowledge my insider has collected. This is not their opinion or my opinion. Also, we’re not insulting or trying to mock anyone who ever shipped Elounor. Just to note: my insider is not even a shipper of anything at all in this fandom.) Remember how the fans made such a fuss about it, but neither Louis or Eleanor did? Neither of them publicly commented about it. Neither of them tweeted. We got a lot of crap after that. People would make edits of Twitter DMs to “convince” us they were still together or if they really had broken up. Bottom line: Louis never confirmed or denied it. And he’s in the same situation with these baby rumors.
My insider has told me that Elounor was “called off” by management because they needed to move into the next phase of PR: Zayn leaving. A few days after the headlines gave us such stories like “Louis Tomlinson Splits From Longtime Girlfriend” or “Representative for Louis Tomlinson Confirms Breakup” what happened? That’s right. The big shocker: Zayn “quits” 1D.
Elounor was called off for several reasons. One of them being that management no longer cared about them as a “couple” and wanted all the remaining attention to focus on Sophiam and Zerrie (but definitely Zerrie). Following the “split” and Zayn “leaving,” we received stories and publicity photos of Louis out clubbing on the town. In most photos he was drunk and/or miserable. They used the “he misses his ex-girlfriend” excuse, and people actually believed that. Remember how Harry Styles used to be known as the womanizer? (That’s what they made him out to be.) They tried it out on Louis. People started having doubts by then.
Here’s how they played it: Louis casually out partying with random girls and guys; they focus on one particular girl; said girl happens to be Briana Jungwirth; regardless of whether or not she’s actually friends with Louis, they hire/pay her and she probably signs a non-disclosure agreement (a contract stating she’s under oath and can’t speak or act out of line…even if, sadly, she receives hate); Briana and Louis will be photographed more and then rumors will start when we least expect it….. all orchestrated by those at Modest! Management who are in charge of PR.
To sum it up: Elounor will be used for these rumors as long as they’re floating around. We’ll get several stories about how “Eleanor and Louis will get back together” and “Louis wants Eleanor back”; all that is bullshit, but they want you to believe it.
This is all I’m going to post for now. This was hard for me to do. I debated numerous times about whether or not I should post this. Expect a huge retaliation from Modest! if they see this…
Why do most of people ship Talisto? I am new in this fandom and just don't understand why there are a lot of fans of Mephisto/Talia
Oh ho ho, this might take a while.
There’s a lot of reasons people ship it, so I may not be able to pin point everyone’s reasons exactly, but I’ll do my best with the one’s I can think of…
They look awesome together!
A lot of us like the physical appeal the two characters have and simply enjoy seeing them interact and being next to each other. This is a common influence on why people ship characters in the first place. We like the way they look with each other and want to see them canonly side by side or doing things together. Plus both characters happen to be extremely attractive, but it’s always played up as a joke or never commented on for Mephisto and Talia respectively. Like, c'mon look at them they’re just unf
This is probably one of the most agreeable reasons we like the ship. It’s a “tale as old as time kind” of ordeal. The Beauty falling in love with the Beast and vice versa is something we have loved to see time and time again. A lot of us are total suckers for that “opposites attract” trope and if you’re like me, you’re always thirst for more “sassy cute and brainy hardworking type vs dark, cocky and witty genius baddie who eventually become twos sassy dorks in love” couples. (Ex: Rumbelle, Zutara, Duncney, WonderBat, Naveen and Tiana, Arnold and Helga, Nathina, Bulma and Vegeta) While Talia is mature (most of the time), self-conscious, strict, elegant, and practical, Mephisto is childish (not always but quite often), will do anything no matter how ridiculous it seems (aside from wearing a dress apparently), outgoing, a bit awk-okay very awkward, and spontaneous. She’s a planner, he’ll just run with it. She works, he plays. A lot of us like the idea of them balancing each other out. Mephisto is very similar to Auriana, who has shown the ability to get Talia to loosen up. Praxina, the one person to keep Mephisto in check aside from Gramorr, is very similar to Talia. I think they’d handle each other’s positive and negative qualities pretty well. Plus, think of all the sass! Talia is witty and salty af while Mephisto likes to argue. Bruh seemed to get a kick out of arguing with Missy and the idea of the two canon geniuses would be the best. Like, I can totally see these two nerds keeping count of who wins in arguments, and knowing just how to get under each other’s skin, but also knowing when to stop (though the others having to stop them would be funny too) and making up all sassy and embarrassed and being prideful about it. I’m sorry but their little interactions in “Xeris” make me totally believe this is how they’d go about it. I think we’d also love to see Mephisto being a gushy lovey dovey boyfriend and Talia being the “fine you can kiss me but i wont like it but i also love it so im low key happy do it again” girlfriend; or the “i will shove this magical staff so far up ur ass call my boyfriend a loser again missy i dare you” talia and the “ha my girls a badass and she flawless get dragged” mephisto lookin hella smug like yes plz SORRY i got into lala land but yes, dynamic. Also, tension. All the sexual tension these two could give. Or just as well, fluff. These two are both so awkward and adorable, they could have really cute bad dates or really sweet good dates. Honestly both would work really well for both of them.
Development and Interactions
This kind of goes hand in hand with “”Dynamics”; not only would these two be amazing to watch interact, it would create prime opportunities for a couple of interactions we never get: talisto, of course, but also Praxina and the girls, Praxina and Mephisto with Izira, , and possible insight to the twins background and maybe even some Lev and Talia since he’s currently on the twins’ side. We’d also get that rivalry with Talia and Praxina we all like and honestly I’d love to see Big Sis Izzy vs Big Sis Prax. On another note, we could see Talia and Mephisto bond over living in their sisters’ shadows and I’d love to see Talia appreciating or nerding out with another spellbinder over illusions and spells and WE COULD FINALLY LET THESE CHILDREN EAT HURLEY BEEF STEAK. But I digress, it would be nice to see these two change for the better around each other. Mephisto’s influence could easily make Talia more open-minded, playful, and secure with herself; Talia could make Mephisto more confident in himself and capabilities as his own person, less dependable, and a little less chaotic. We all know neither would completely change who they are, but I can totally see the two finding a balance with each other; playing each others’ “yin” and “yang”.
No one sees it coming. Not the girls, not the viewers, not even Talia and Mephisto! That’s something I love about it personally and I know others do too. It would have to be kind of slow burn to build it’s way up, so we’d have time to adjust. I’m sorry, but from the relationships we’ve had so far, they’ve been predictable, made obvious, and haven’t really developed into anything other than being crushes. It doesn’t help that its a little forced either.
*stares at kyle*
Ahem, anyways, I’d like to see this develop and evolve and totally knock the teams off their rockers. Not only would the reactions be funny, the story would have to be more complicated and we’d finally see that, “oh these two like each other boom they’re canon now lets move on” thrown out and get some character growth. Nobody expects the most uptight princess whose so set in her ways to fall for the goofy evil sorcerer whose blowing up the city. No one expects the devious snake boy that’s always trailing his master and sister’s capes to fall for the blue haired beauty on the other team that’s yelling at him for blowing up the city. Its unnatural. Its unheard of. We want it.
Forbidden Lovers Trope/Starcrossed Lovers
This is something we’d technically get with all of the princesses, no matter who he’d end up with, but personally, the most forbidden princess would be either Talia or Iris. Iris, of course, because she’s married to Nat, fight me. Okay, no, but they should be. She’s the “savior” so no no, Meph, don’t touch that. Plus you insulted her pink hair, you don’t deserve her. And murmurlr has dibs already, so tough nuts kid. But who is the most untouchable princess aside from Iris? Talia. She’s the designated leader of the team by Princess (possibly Queen) Izira, she’s Iris’ main teacher, she’s the one who makes the decisions to stay for a fight, or retreat, she’s the one everyone trusts to lead them on the Earth away from whom and find the oracle gems. She’s the eldest, most mature, most responsible. She’s the one the girls look up to. She’s the strongest person Iris knows. Not only that, but Xerians are held very highly back on Epehdia and are known internationally. Hell, she’s the guardian of the Ancient Ephedian Spellbook and she’s only 16 years old. Talia is up there in terms of Ephedia’s list of “do not touch”. And let’s be real; Mephisto is pretty high on the list of “NO”. He’s evil, he likes to blow stuff up, he’s evil, he’s tried to destroy the princesses and he city, HE’S EVIL, like he’s known by Izira even though they haven’t been on earth. He’s snagged an oracle gem from Iris! They’re on opposite sides and at opposite spectrum. They wouldn’t dare. Would they? Secret dates, the girls getting suspicious of why their leader is going out and brightening up, Prax getting annoyed over her brother’s strange behavior, sneaking kisses, Lev knowing all along and blackmailing these dorks, giving them advice and being Meph’s wingman; sneaking kisses, flirting in battle, sneaking through that window above Tali’s bed, sacred dates. Them learning to trust each other and enjoying earth and terribly hilarious scenarios of talia almost getting caught and hiding him in her room; or better yet, all this happens behind the scenes and we see talia is a little awkward or suspicious but we just don’t know why and at some point everyone just finds out and is like “WHAT.” All these scenarios seem like they’d make some quality comedy and provide some change of pace to the show which would be refreshing.
We haven’t seen these two interact like the other two princesses have with Mephisto. We’ve seen them interact mainly in “Xeris”, and they fight one on one in both “Batty” and “The Haunting”, but we never get to see them fight for long, let alone have a full blown discussion. We’re thirstin for that interaction! Just as well, some of us don’t like, or have any interest in canon ships in general. A ship does not have to be canon to be shipped. That’s the beauty of shipping.There’s so much wiggle room as to what we can do with this unexplored territory and its fun to play around with it. Even non-shippers seem to enjoy seeing these two interact or put together out of curiosity. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re both fan and crew favorites as well. Its almost ironic that they’re so distant. I personally have a lot of questions about the interactions we have had; anytime we’ve seen them fight, Talia’s less precise, less put together, she can’t for a plan, she has to improvise, and she’s quicker to get frustrated in angry
- she has to fight dirty. Mephisto himself has to use stronger spells and concentrate more, and once again that taunting in “Xeris” was a little too cocky, a bit to enjoyable for him; and its not like it was Prax’s idea, because she wasn’t doing it, she was relatively quiet for Praxina; that was his personal choice and its probably the shipper in me, or maybe the fact that Mephisto is a little shit, but any time I watch that episode I’m side eyin this fool cuz he’s like low-key flirtatious in tone, whoooops. But that’s just me :P
Now, its 2:32 AM and I have work in the morning so I’ll cut this off here. I’m too tired to remember anything else I was going to type! And in some of these my fan girl goggles slipped on so forgive me nonnie for being shippy trash but my thirst has no curfew and I regret nothing. Now, keep in mind, I’m not telling you to ship it. You are perfectly fine if you don’t, and I love you, and you are special. If anyone feels like I’ve missed anything or wants to add on for their own two cents in why they ship Talia and Mephisto, please do! I also ask that everyone in the fandom, and you all are really courteous, please be kind. If you don’t ship it, or hate it, leave it be. Please keep the peace! We’re a really chill fandom, so let’s keep it chill. Sorry its so long, but ya’ll know me. I give ish out in essays! Mwa ha ha!
Anyways, I guess this is here for thoughts now right?
(I should already tell you, there will be spoilers.
I was going to leave this review at ff.net but I wanted to be able to use gifs so here we are. So, @shadu-kiam, this is for you. )
Let me begin by saying I have read a lot of fan fics in different fandoms, pairings, story lines, cliches, from epic to the bizarre. This has been my addiction for over a decade now so when I find a good fan fic, I love it with my whole being. And, “The Alkahest” isn’t just good, it’s pretty damn good. Let me explain why.
The fic’s basic premise is of the marriage law trope which every pairing in the Potter fandom has to have a few or a hundred lying around. I’ve read through some pretty crazy Dramione ones in the past and going into it, I confess, I was apprehensive. After a while, you begin to wonder if there could be a new spin to this trope and @shadu-kiam‘s fic works in that she didn’t care about reinventing the trope itself and instead focused on making it a more character-driven story. And oh golly, does she deliver.
“The Alkahest” focused on Draco and Hermione as a couple and individually as characters. This is a slow-burn romance that feels organic, moving at a pace that neither feels sluggish nor rushed. We see their relationship develop from animosity to friendship to falling in love. We see them grow in the relationship as their differing personalities and perspectives force them to evaluate themselves as people and as a significant other.
“And that scares me more than I think you’ll ever
know,” he whispered. “How easily that other future could have happened.
How much more likely it was to happen. How unlikely it is that I’m here,
right now, outside of a coffee shop, holding your hand with my ring
on it.” He smiled a bit, huffing a soft laugh. “Sometimes it wakes me
up at night, and I have to check that I’m still wearing mine. And some
days I wake up, sure that it was all just a dream and I’m waking up in
the real world for the first time and you and I still haven’t spoken in years.
And I come to this coffee shop, almost certain you won’t appear. And
then you walk in like you always do, and I’m filled with this
unspeakable amount of relief.”
They don’t treat each other as something the other needs to fix for they help each other be better. They fight and then learn from it. They educate and challenge each other. They learn how to maintain the relationship in a healthy one with time and guidance from friends and family.
I really adore about the story is how the relationships with their friends and family don’t take a back burner to the relationship. It’s easy for us to get stuck in Dramione land and see the other characters as background to the romance but @shadu-kiam didn’t do that. These characters are just as important in the love story as the romance part of it.
Harry and Hermione’s relationship in this story is defined better than any fic I’ve read, heck, any Harmony fic out there. @shadu-kiam found the heart and soul of this friendship, this bond between these soul mates, and wrote it so beautifully. This fic made me laugh out loud more times than I could count, but a flashback scene with Harry and Hermione is what brought me to tears. Their devotion and loyalty for each other was painted so well, it still makes me tear up.
you bossy boots,” he said, chuckling wetly. “You. The voice of reason
all these years. The only one of my friends who would stand against me
and inform me in no uncertain terms of when I was wrong or being a prat.
The person who I could turn to when I needed help, even when I treated
you awful. The person who sat with me and helped me parse my thoughts
and feelings before I did something stupid. You, Hermione, the first
person to ever really love me after my parents died.”
The story begins with the ending of Ron and Hermione’s relationship. And it was especially lovely to see their relationship/friendship handled so well due to plenty writers’ tendency of bashing the relationship or Ron himself. @shadu-kiam gave their own love story a fitting and sweet end where they realized they are better off as friends and their love surpasses not being in love with each other. Ron doesn’t fade away into the background and he’s still very much in the story with us as he should be.
Lucius and Hermione’s relationship is probably one of the most amusing aspects of the story. Their own ‘war’ in the fic is something to live for. But I commend @shadu-kiam for writing Lucius as a character with depth, not a monster, but a man. Lucius has not become a saint over night and still has some darkness to him but he is not far from redemption.
“You think it’s funny that my father enjoys a waffle, do you?” Draco
asked. Behind him, Lucius rolled his eyes a bit as Hermione nodded.
“What’d you think he ate for breakfast?”
“I assumed he woke up every morning and feasted on the souls of innocent children.”
“Fair enough,” Draco conceded.
“I fail to see how
that is ‘fair enough,’” Lucius muttered, taking another bite of his
waffle. Narcissa’s smile briefly widened, and she covered it by dabbing
at her mouth with her napkin. Lucius shot her a narrow look, reeking of
Draco’s interactions with Hermione’s friends is filled with hilarity. Actually, any time Harry, Ron, and Ginny (and then later Susan) are around something always happens. From a traumatic roller coaster ride to Harry and Draco pretending to be gay to go clubbing, the fun times keep coming. In fact, there is so much humor and wit in this fic, it began to remind me of The Princess Bride for it’s quotable quality.
Harry rolled his eyes, getting to his feet to stand beside Hermione.
“Fine. I don’t want to be in your stupid gossip clique, anyway. Hermione
and I will form our own clique. A better clique.”
“Yeah,” Hermione agreed, a little huffy, herself. She nodded along with Harry, crossing her arms.
“We’ll be the Rational Rabbits.”
Hermione’s head-nod turned into a head-shake as she shot Harry a look. “No,” she said, softly.
“No? What?” he asked, in an undertone.
“Don’t… Don’t name us. That makes us sound like losers,” she whispered.
Another thing I must commend about this fic is that @shadu-kiam does not keep away from acknowledging the issues of the characters and of the worlds they live in. Hermione is especially insightful in that she educates the Malfoys about the Muggle world, showing not just the ingenuity but the horrors of it, too. The traumas these characters experienced from the War are not erased and @shadu-kiam provided us with a view of it I’ve not seen before where Voldemort and the terrible wars were but a civil war within the UK, not affecting the world around them. @shadu-kiam somehow blends this with our own world where currently such things aren’t just fiction and as Hermione made the Malfoys ponder, @shadu-kiam may have made us ponder as well.
I’ve ranted and gushed long enough but I shall end this with a recommendation for anyone reading - go read it. You will not regret it. If you’re looking for a fic with multi-dimensional characters that develop as the story goes, with a beautiful and hilarious romance, and even subtle introspection about our own lives, then this is it. So far, It’s over fifty chapters so prepare yourself for a long, sleepless night.
He lifted his hands and intoned, “All hail the Red Thing. All glory to the Red Thing.”
shook her head, trying not to flush as she rolled her eyes towards the
ceiling, biting back a smile. Hermione fisted her hands against her
hips, trying not to look as self-conscious as she felt. Wearing the
lingerie had proven to be harder than just being naked; knowing she was
trying to actively be appealing lent an air to the whole situation that left her feeling oddly vulnerable, even though she was technically less naked.
“The Red Thing should be displayed under the stars for proper tribute,” he tried.
His voice dropped to a whisper. “The Red Thing is displeased.”
fandom: girl meets world pairing: riley matthews x lucas friar word count: 1,830 prompt: “all i can say is it was enchanting to meet you” - written for day two of rucas fanfiction week! notes: just a cute lil fluffy thing about riley and lucas meeting for the first time. this takes place when they’re both in college and have never met before. also i lowkey changed the wording of the prompt, the quote is basically the same but a lil different.
Happiest place on earth my ass. His thoughts are bitter and has to refrain the scowl from becoming too prominent on his face as he strolls down on of the many crowded streets in the middle of Disney World. He just wanted to go back to his apartment in New York, drink too much, make bad life decisions for a couple days before moving on, like any normal college kid would after a bad breakup.
Instead, here he was in fucking Disney World. He knew that this trip was veiled and masqueraded as a way for Lucas to get over his messy breakup with his long term girlfriend, Missy. But Lucas saw right through that, he knew that the real reason that Farkle had been so willing to drop all this money for them to come here, was so he could get a week in with his girlfriend Smackle, and Zay was definitely using this trip to flirt with all the college girls here for spring break.
Why do you ship Lunyx? Well , i watched Kingsglaive like 2 days ago , and i just shipped them the moment they met in the movie . ahahaha
Haha, awesome another LuNyx shipper on deck! I’ve shipped them looong before the movie came out. I was resistant at first because I ship Luna and Gentiana with each other and knew nothing about Nyx. The ones to blame are @stephanythedramaqueen and the screenshots of the two standing next to each other. That’s all. Just standing next to each other. And the fireworks. The team behind KG totally wanted us to ship it with the atmosphere they built. Even with the screenshots alone it was enough for me to write fics for them and I found myself more and more invested in them. Also, they’re just really easy for me to write about, canon and AU settings than say that pairing. Then the movie cemented it for me. LuNyx is one of my OTPs. I go down with this ship and I don’t have any regrets. I’ve made my bed. Oh, and I found really awesome people who produce amazing content so I blame them for dragging me down further. Made awesome friends in the ship, too. Gonna delve into spoilers if you don’t mind. I’ll still tag this as Kingsglaive spoilers and FFXV spoilers.
Karmy (Faking It) - Why It’s Meant To Be. The Ultimate Karmy Pairing Analysis.
So, lately I’ve been obsessed with MTV’s show Faking It way beyond the allowed, healthy limit.
Normally, I ship the hell out of pretty much everything on screen,
because I’m built like that, but, to be honest, not being part of the LGBT community, I’ve
never really imagined I would ship the hell out of two female fictional characters. It’s not that I’m against
LGBT, quite the contrary, it’s just that no potential pair has
tugged at my heartstrings like that before. But, boy oh boy, then came Karmy and their story is so sweet and relateable it’s not even funny. They’re like Ross and Rachel - they’re that pair everyone falls for because it’s obvious and meant to be - which is why they will most likely be facing A LOT as the show progresses - frustrating, but totally worth it in the end. I swear, I’m going down with this ship. They have been designed to be endgame from the very beginning - Carter knows it, we know it. So, as a relatively new member of the Karmy army, I’m here to
present our ship, and why I firmly believe our little babies are meant
1. Amy and Karma’s friendship. The main part of the
plot revolves around Amy Raudenfeld and Karma Ashcroft’s ten-year-old
friendship, one that makes us all envious because it is that PERFECT,
it’s the ultimate portrayal of genuine, heartfelt and mutually supportive, it’s
everything you could ask for. These girls share a bond that is so
strong, one that forgives and forgets, one that goes beyond words. Amy
knows Karma better than she knows herself and vice versa. You simply
CAN’T top this. And while Reamy is alright, Regan will never get to that
level of emotional intimacy with Amy (sorry Reamy shippers, but we both
know it’s the truth). And why is that? Because Amy will never allow
anyone else to reach the place in her heart that’s already been filled
by someone else – her best friend and soulmate.
2. The wedding confession and Karma’s denial.
Most see this moment as our ship taking a crushing blow and sinking to
the bottom of the ocean, but let me tell you, it was the exact opposite
and I will explain. Yes, Amy confessed her love and apparently got
rejected, and yes, she drunk slept with Liam as a form of revenge – she
was angry, hurt and miserable.
But Karma has been in denial about
her feelings since the beginning of season 1. By rejecting Amy, Karma
was protecting herself. By sleeping with Liam at the end of 2a, Karma
was enforcing her DENIAL and trying to ignore her heart. The roles have
been reversed and now Karma finds herself in Amy’s shoes after the
homecoming assembly – confused and scared, and not wanting to have those
feelings. 2b will hopefully analyze that. Back to the wedding scene –
the build up that has led to this scene apparently leads us to believe
that Karma is straight and let Amy down gently. But, in the words of
Shane, the voice of the people, as two girls on Youtube so gracefully
put it – THERE ARE ALWAYS SIGNS.
Exhibit A – Karma didn’t
feel weird about kissing Amy at the homecoming assembly – “I thought you
were great.” Amy tried to mask her true feelings by saying she felt
like “kissing her sister”, yet Karma didn’t agree, even though
supposedly she should be feeling exactly like that if they were best
friends/family only. Regardless of how well you know someone, there should’ve been some sort of awkwardness there if both girls were straight as an arrow. That’s a given. Exhibit B – “Whoa” – “I Know” – those are
not the type of lines you exchange with your best friend unless you
FELT something when you kissed, unless those moments meant something,
unless you were taken aback by how strongly you felt and could only
utter a breathy, soft whoa, Karma. And we all know you were staring at
Amy’s abs during the threesome. You weren’t exactly being discreet, let’s get real here. Exhibit C
– Liam AKA Hottie Doucheface (I didn’t come up with that name but I
wish I had because it’s hilarious) – Karma has been overcompensating all
right. Every single time Karma gets confused about her feelings for
Amy, she goes to Liam. Why?
Because he helps her burry her
feelings deep inside and live her childhood fantasy. She doesn’t want to
admit that she no longer wants Prince Charming but Princess Sarcasm,
even though part of her always knew that.
Amy and Karma are very
different and have opposite approaches to their feelings. Amy, being the
sarcastic, self-assured girl who doesn’t need others as a form of self
validation, came to terms with her feelings easier, even though she’s
also had her fair share of self-doubt. But she also had Shane to confide
in, who helped her realize there was no shame, nothing wrong with the
way she was feeling.
Karma, on the other hand, only had Amy. And
when Amy took a backseat in her quest for popularity, Karma’s denial
only grew stronger. She kept pursuing her childhood fantasy because she
is insecure and desperately seeks people’s approval. Only when Karma
will learn to love herself, she will be truthful and let herself
succumb to her feelings, all the while letting Amy in - because she
knows Amy is the only person who would gladly give her the world without
asking for anything in return.
So, then why did Karma reject
Amy at the wedding? Because she is not ready to face her own fears,
because her struggles are a lot bigger than Amy’s when it comes to
self-acceptance, and I think her parents played a huge part in this. She
DREADS being like them, and it’s why she pursues popularity with such
stubborness. Karma gets a lot of hate from the fanbase, but I believe
her character is very complex and vastly misunderstood.
3. The threesome.
Or a moment of simple clarity. If Karma had any lingering doubts up
until then, her look before and after kissing Amy at the threesome was
as certain as it could get. Karma tries to hide it yet again, and while
she’s undoubtedly a better liar than Amy, her eyes still manage to give
everything away for the viewers - they are, after all, the windows to
her soul. Like Amy so beautifully captured it - “It was like seeing each
other, maybe for the first time”. For Karma, it was simple clarity,
which she later tried to cover up by overcompensating with Liam as a
form of self-preservation. Karma is afraid, she is scared to death in
that scene, that’s why she runs. In her own words, “Everything got out
of control.” Or maybe just her feelings did.
4. In comes Reagan.
Anyone who thinks Karma was not jealous at the Communal needs a new
pair of eyes. And while the discussion revolves around the possibility
of Karma being jealous because she thought she was being replaced in
Amy’s life AS A BEST FRIEND ONLY, I believe it was more than that. I
believe it was another moment of clarity for Karma, just like the
threesome. She realized that Amy might get over her, and she didn’t want
that. Liam, oddly enough the voice of reason in the Date Expectations
episode, put it best “You’re just scared that someday Amy might love
somebody as much as she loves you.” Let’s face it, folks – Karma is not
that needy. If we’re strictly talking about friendship, I’m sure Karma
would not object to Amy having another close friend – after all, she had
nothing against Shane and Lauren, slowly bonding with her. No, Karma

5. The jail scene. “I’ve been in love
with you since the day we met.” Those words shook Karma to the core, and
despite her betrayed trust, hurt and anger, it is these words that
compel Karma to sleep with Liam (overcompensate – because that’s what
she does when she’s scared of the magnitude of her feelings for Amy).
But, as it turns out, Karma’s dreams at the end of 2A reflect her self
best, they are our first glance in Karma’s head, our first glance at her
true character, outside of her interactions with Amy, who is the
closest person to her. Karma’s dreams reveal her true feelings for Amy,
and her fears of being hurt again also, even though she set herself up
for it. This means our ship has all the premises to go back on track,
but it will take time. However, when hasn’t the Karmy Army been patient,
dedicated and supportive? We believe in these characters and we’ll wait
for them to come to their senses, because they’re soulmates, the normal
rules don’t apply to them. They’re spending the rest of their lives
So, on the subject of your new tumblr name, how good do you think queen Alysanne (also Jaehaerys) truly was(were)? She was obviously very philanthropic, but the love of the smallfolk is easy to buy (ex. Tyrells). The donation of the New Gift was very unpopular in the North. Their reign also set the stage for one of the most apathetic kings to sit the throne. And despite all the talk of codifying law, there hasn't been any mention of any magna carta type document being written by the couple.
Thanks for the question, Anon.
I think Alysanne was the best of the Targaryen queen consorts, and let me tell you why.
That you mention the Tyrells in terms of winning smallfolk loyalty exactly speaks to how talented Alysanne actually was, not how easy the smallfolk are to buy off. Margaery is a latter-day Alysanne: she is a master, at 16, of image politics in the role of a queen -
giving alms to beggars, stopping her horse to speak to common tradesmen, very publicly praying with her cousins in the Great Sept of Baelor. She makes sure people see her and associate her personal good character with her role as queen, giving people more than a mere legal reason to support the crown.
That’s exactly what Alysanne did. Alysanne came directly from a period of poor relations between crown and people: her father Aenys and uncle Maegor had both battled the populous Faith Militant, and Alysanne knew that winning the smallfolk would be crucial to reestablishing the royal peace. Why does she stop at Queenscrown and sleep among the people?
By staying among them -
the lowest and most ordinary of her subjects, in a remote village at the edge of existence - Alysanne personalized the monarchy: the Targaryens were not simply faces on coins to whom their overlords owed grudging fealty, but real people, with a willingness to form personal connections with their subjects. Why does Alysanne beg Jaehaerys to abolish the right to the first night? By doing so, she played perfectly to the traditional Westerosi queenly role as the vector of mercy – interceding with her lord husband to spare the innocent smallfolk women, with the expectation that the just king would be moved by his love for her to do so. And if some of those same smallfolk had, say, taken up arms for the Faith against the crown oh so recently, they may well have admired a queen who seemingly so loved the Seven that she would move her king to protect marriage as the Father and Mother had intended it. She knows the political value of being seen as the benefactress of the smallfolk, just as her grandmother Rhaenys had: as Jaehaerys was the model Father, the fair judge of his children, so she was the ideal Mother, merciful and loving. Why is she the only Targaryen queen we know to have gotten a positive epithet? That doesn’t speak to “buying off” love for a generation, that reflects a calculated campaign of crafting a long-lasting positive legacy.
As for the Donation of Alysanne, it was certainly unpopular with some members of the Stark family. Keep in mind, however, that these same Starks had been grumbling for rebellion against the Targaryens in the decades since King Torrhen bent the knee. The entire purpose of Jaehaerys’ visit North was to, gently but firmly, remind the Starks that he was he in charge, and it was to that end that Alysanne played her role perfectly. She traveled to Queenscrown, as I noted above - a remote place Lord Ellard may never have even visited - to show that the smallfolk would remain loyal to the crown over the Stark overlord they had likely never met. At the Wall, she had funded construction of a new castle with her own jewels, publicly stating that her personal finery and glory mattered less than the welfare of the Night’s Watch, that long-respected institution. The Donation was the most dramatic part of her campaign, but it successfully reminded the Starks that the crown could take away their lands at any time, for the good of “the realm”. She also, at some point, betrothed Princess Viserra to Lord Manderly, to keep the North’s only great port Targaryen loyal should the Starks be so foolish as to rebel. The whole trip north, including the Donation, was a calculated political move, and while the Donation had its costs in some Stark love, it succeeded in quashing the very real possibility of a Stark rebellion.
As for Viserys I: blaming Jaehaerys and Alysanne for Viserys seems rather unfair. Both of their married sons, Aemon and Baelon, apparently performed their duties in the field admirably - Aemon dying fighting pirates off the coast of Tarth, and Baelon being called “Baelon the Brave” - and even Vaegon became an Archmaester, so I would say they knew a thing or two about raising good boys. I can no more blame Jaehaerys for Viserys’ faults than I can blame Viserys II for Aegon IV’s faults, or Aegon the Conqueror for Aenys’ and Maegor’s faults; each father was a great king in his own right, yet each son displayed woefully undesirable traits so opposed to his father’s careful diplomacy. At some point, Viserys I himself must be responsible for being the lazy, over-conciliatory king that he was.
As for law … are you suggesting Jaehaerys did not actually codify Westerosi law? I mean, Yandel explicitly states in TWOIAF, “Where his grandsire, King Aegon, had left the laws of the Seven Kingdoms to the vagaries of local tradition and custom, Jaehaerys created the first unified code, so that from the North to the Dornish Marches, the realm shared a single rule of law.” I would not say that the lack of a Magna Carta invalidates all the real and practical changes Jaehaerys made to the law of the Seven Kingdoms, considering the Magna Carta was a pretty specific document for pretty specific circumstances (which did not match Jaehaerys and Alysanne’s own circumstances). I would not be surprised if, in his codification efforts, Jaehaerys sought Alysanne’s advice: they were a good team (made better by the addition of Septon Barth), and she was “keenly intelligent”, a trusted and trustworthy adviser.
So, I like Alysanne, and I don’t want to see her undersold. She was a clever and capable queen who both was genuinely philanthropic and knew the value of image politics.
Hi I just found your page and its really good?? ^3^ I was wondering how the RFA + V and Saeran would react if the MC was mute (unable to speak)? Thanks ♡♡♡
Aw tysm!! cute I love it! I’m going to write this in the context that whenever they try to call you, you hang up and say you prefer to text instead. You initially say it’s just because you prefer it that way (and they all respect that), but when you meet them in person, you decide to explain to them what the real reason is. This is also under the assumption that you get their good ends.
Zen: He’s super giddy when you come to see him for the first time when his leg is hurt. He gets really confused at first when you don’t respond, though. You seem suddenly flustered and pull out your phone to text him. Is she just really shy in person? he wonders. He feels the vibration of his phone and checks the newest message. “Sorry. I forgot to mention it, but I’m mute.” “Oh!” He exclaims, blushing a little bit. Now it made sense why you didn’t ever want to talk on the phone. “I’m sorry, I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings. That’s no problem at all, babe. Welcome to my home.” He smiles at you a lot and continues talking with you, checking his phone for responses. Long term, he gradually learns sign language for you. He likes to kiss you and comment on the soft noises that you make, making you feel special. When you mention that you’re envious of his voice, he starts singing you lullabies frequently.
Jaehee: She sees you for the first time at the party, and she’s elated, excitedly asking you to join her as her business partner. “So what do you say, MC? Yes or no?” You shift your feet and nod. “Yes?” You nod again. “…oh, well, that’s lovely!” You still feel embarrassed though, so you text her. She picks up her phone in confusion. “I’m sorry Jaehee…I never mentioned it, but…I’m mute. I can’t speak. But it’s a huge, happy Yes!” “Oh!!! Oh my!!!!” she exclaims, blushing a bit. She then starts signing to you, I’m sorry. Let’s talk like this from now on. You gasp excitedly. You can sign?Yes, she responds, I took sign language in college. You continue talking excitedly, smiling like mad at each other. Long term, it’s super easy transitioning into living with and working with Jaehee. Though you can’t take orders, you work diligently as a barista and spend lots of happy years with Jaehee.
Yoosung: He also meets you for the first time at the party, right after he gives you the sweetest and most loving kiss. He pulls away, smiling at you like mad. You’re blushing really hard, and he takes your silence for bashfulness. He pulls you to a more private location to make out with you more, but starts worrying he’s coming on too strong. “Are you ok, MC?” Your silence worries him further until you pull out your phone and text him. “I’m sorry I never mentioned it, Yoosung, but I can’t speak. I’m mute.” “Oh!” he breathes, blushing. “I-I’m sorry I was too inconsiderate to notice. I was kind of busy, um…well, you know…haha…I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings?” You shake your head no, smiling at him, and he chuckles nervously, blushing harder. You pull him back into a kiss, smiling. Long term, he learns sign language gradually. He holds your hands a lot, so before and after you sign at him, he grabs your hands again. He talks about how much he likes kissing you softly, sitting in silence together, and whispers gently to you whenever you cuddle.
Jumin: When you step into his apartment, he’s immediately mesmerized by you. He stands to greet you, thanking you for coming to his apartment. When he asks you why you came, you hesitate, bringing your finger to your lip. “?” He stares at you questioningly. You bring out your phone to text him. “Oh, my apologies Jumin, I neglected to mention it to you prior- I’m mute. Jaehee sent me here because we’re both worried about you.” He checks his phone and nods, unphased. “Thank you for coming. It’s a pleasure to meet you.” He continues talking to you and checking his phone for your response, not at all perturbed. Long term, he hires a tutor to help him learn sign language, and he makes quick progress. He’ll glare down anybody who makes fun of you for it. Pampers you like a princess and kisses you a lot on the lips. Murmurs to you that he’s the only one allowed to hear your soft, quiet noises when you’re reacting to him touching your body. It’s really hot
Seven: When unknown grabs you, you can’t even scream, but you kick with all your might. Right when Seven comes in, he hears unknown grunting and the sounds of a struggle. As the scene unfolds, he initially thinks you’ve been injured because you aren’t talking or making sounds. When unknown flees, though, and he rushes to your side, he’s confused by your silence. You shake your head, trying to sign at him, and for a moment he doesn’t understand. He suddenly realizes it, though, when you point to your mouth and shake your head, mouthing “I can’t speak.” “Are you mute?” You nod. He starts signing at you frantically, and later you find out that among the many (random) languages Seven knows, sign language is included. When he tries to ignore you and push you away, you cry, and he knows you’re crying in the other room even though you’re quiet. He can year your soft sniffles and tissues being blown and it kills him. Long term, when you two finally get together, he holds you tightly. He signs about how much he loves you, constantly. Traces your lips with his fingers, kisses you deeply, whispers sweet nothings into your ear.
V: (this is a little wonky since V doesn’t have a route so I’mma make this up as I go along) The first time he meets you, he’s really excited and nervous, but he can tell something’s off. “Are you ok, MC?” he asks, immediately worried about your well-being. You text him swiftly. “Oh gosh I’m sorry V! I forgot to tell you I’m mute. :(” “Ah,” he says, a little relieved, “That’s ok. Do you mind if I keep talking? I can read your texts as we go.” You nod, smiling, and proceed to have a very lovely evening with him drinking tea and chatting about all sorts of things. Long term, he also learns sign language, and he texts you a lot throughout the day to tell you how much he loves you. He likes to listen to your heartbeat and listen to the air rush in and out of your chest. “You sound like a beautiful harmony, MC.” You blush and hold him closer to you, fingers intertwining with his hair.
Saeran: The first time he meets you isn’t exactly pleasant. He tries to kidnap you, after all. He takes your silence as a sign of fear and triumphs at your weakness. The next time he sees you, though, he starts understanding that you have an inability to speak. He frowns, not sure how to interact with you. He slowly starts texting you questions about your well being. “Do you need any food?” “Are you hungry?” “Do you want some water?” “Want to go to McDonald’s?” “Wanna go for a walk?” Likes to sit with you quietly and read, simply exist next to you. Long term, he slowly learns sign language, preferring to stick to short phrases and questions or just speak to you and read your signs back. He will fite anyone who tries to make fun of you for it. He also likes listening to you breathe, kisses your throat a lot, holds you close and feels overly protective of you.
Or, the one where Louis is a famous actor who dubs Harry, Harold of the Bakery after meeting him while hiding from paparazzi. The one where Louis makes dreams come true by taking Harry to the sold out Free Skies concert. Being best friends with the band has it’s privileges, or so that’s what Niall always told him. Or, just the one where Oreo cupcakes make everything better.
Louis is an overworked worldwide pop sensation that is being run to the ground by his management. He meets Harry at the tattoo shop where he plans on getting a tattoo to enrage his bosses. Harry turns out to be everything his management doesn’t want Louis near, everything Louis wants, and what gives the media what they want the most. Louis’ sudden revolt against his flawless reputation could be the next big thing.
AU. Five years after The X Factor launched his career as a radio host and songwriter, Louis Tomlinson returns as a judge. Falling for a contestant is the last thing he needs. It’s also against his contract.
The only reason Harry auditions for The X Factor is because his best mate signed the two of them up as some kind of joke. Harry doesn’t get the big deal—not until he’s faced with this season’s judges and realises that one of them used to be his desperate, impossible teenage crush.
It was due to unfortunate circumstances that Louis had to start doing Youtube videos, trying his best to make ends meet for a charity he wouldn’t have started if he’d had any other choice. It was by chance that he caught the attention of one Harry Styles, member of One Direction and the only boy in the world to ever make him speechless.
One awful knock knock joke and everything goes downhill from there.
In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved. But when the wedding is for his lifelong best friend (and former boyfriend), and is happening in under a month, finding a date for the ceremony and accompanying festivities becomes more of an adventure than he ever could have planned for.
When Harry starts university, he finally gets to spend every day with Louis again. They have been friends since forever, and would do anything for each other. Given that, Harry doesn’t hesitate to pose as Louis’ boyfriend once he finds out that his new roommate is no other than Louis’ crush.
or the one with football vlogging, food blogging, salsa dancing, late-night cooking, Brazil sightseeing, way too many bathroom encounters, the recommended amount of unnecessary pining, a bunch of staggering examples of bad stadium etiquette, a Balotelli shirt and a whole lot of snogging. girl!Direction
She’s so gone it’s not even funny. It really isn’t funny because falling in love with your best friend is such a stupid, idiotic, dumb thing to do, and there’s only ever a happy ending in romantic comedies. Louis (she claims, loudly and publicly whenever anyone will listen despite the fact that she’ll watch them with Harry any time Harry asks her to) hates romantic comedies.
The thing is, when it really comes down to it, Louis never stood a chance.
Harry is the new (supposedly heterosexual) freshman who gets convinced by pretty blue eyes and soft skin to join a club about body positivity and self-image. Louis is the definitely-not-male upperclassman who makes her come to terms with some things she’s been denying.
[Or the one where they’re all athlete-type people (except Gucci model Zayn and overly-friendly sports journalist Niall) and long-fated lovers Harry and Louis finally get together after Liam plays in the Superbowl.]
Or a sixth form!AU where Harry is the fucked up bad boy with too many problems, Louis is the perfect rich boy with too much money and their schools are right across from each other. They meet at a party and that’s the last (and maybe the only) thing they need.
AU. The one where they’re all a mess. Sex, drugs and sixth form basically. “And when Louis runs away, none of them know if he’s alive or dead until he knocks on Harry’s window and smiles instead of saying sorry. And Harry forgives him, every single time; they all forgive him, as though he hasn’t broken them up in pieces, because he’s the one keeping them together.”
Harry and Louis have known each other since the start of everything.
When Harry is only a few weeks old, and Louis is two, the older boy is immediately intrigued by the little person in the carry cot. Jay knows that it will be difficult to keep her son away from her best friend’s little boy.
Harry is who high school kids would define as a nerd, he loved going to class and studying, he was just good at school work and saw nothing wrong with liking it. He signs up to tutor students at the middle school down the road where he ends up helping Lottie Tomlinson, younger sister to the ever popular and gorgeous Louis Tomlinson who is also a senior and in a few classes of Harry’s. Harry might have a crush on him and not so sure how to act around Louis but hopes he can get close to the other boy and learn everything about him.
Ace (this one is very special to my heart for ovious reasons)
It’s real. He can’t keep denying it. Denial has just made things more difficult. Acceptance is the first stage to anything.
Louis sniffles and pulls the sun visor down, flipping it open to reveal the mirror. He stares into his own icy eyes, grimacing at the red rim around the edges.
He tries to say the words, but they still feel too final and condemning.
A Catholic school!AU where Louis is finishing sixth form and will definitely be famous someday if Harry has something to say about it, Liam is the racist homophobe that Zayn is dreadfully in love with, and Niall teaches guitar. ~ “Louis remembers it from a few weeks before - Harry had told him that when he loves someone, he loves with every ounce of his being, and it often hurts to feel it. Louis hadn’t really understood what he’d meant until now.“
Louis sighs and gives himself a mental pep talk as he smooths his jumper down over his hips. He can do this. He can resist the draw of Harry Styles, because he is a responsible, mature adult, and as much as he wants to tangle his fingers in that mess of hair and map those ridiculous tattoos with his tongue, he does not want to get his daughter’s favorite teacher fired.
If you’re too lazy to read the whole goddamn thing, i’ve typed up a tl;dr for you. i know i get lazy too. but instead, if you read the whole thing, then thank you very much~ <3
Now, let’s enjoy the ride~
There’s going to be a lot opinions here so if you are weak-hearted/easily butthurt or simple can’t take into account of other people’s opinions, then saunter off because this post is not for you.
Tl;dr : Jessica was misbehaved and I feel like Jessica could’ve still benefit GG in a way! Do kpop idols always behave a certain way only for the public? Crying and saying certain things for sympathy votes or whatever? Think about it. Are they really playing the victim card or can we trust them? Even our biases can lie.
Since this is still a touchy subject to talk about and a lot of people want to look past this incident as if it never had actually happened, especially sensitive hearted SONEs (SNSD’s official fan club name), let’s start this on a happier note. I can’t wait for SNSD”s upcoming comeback! I really hope it would be better than Mr. Mr. since Mr. Mr. was quite meh. The MV was just aesthetically unpleasing and plain jane and the vocals weren’t exactly doing the song justice. And that awkward dance break sequence? But then again, what is Kpop without awkward dance/rap break sequences? And the meaning of the song alone? I approve. So yeah, score for song meaning. Thought the thought of SNSD continuing to promote as eight is extremely upsetting and just doesn’t seem to sit well inside my mind.
Okay, I digress.
Just like every other SONE out there, my heart broke when I heard the news that Jessica was kicked out of/left or whatever SNSD. The reason to that? We, the public, don’t know and probably never will. So I’ll try my best not to jump into any conclusions.
But of course, I want to know the reason why Jessica was out of the group. I guess she was kicked out since she, herself, said that she had no idea about the subject matter and was really upset about the situation. Definitely this was done against her will. Because if she had left the group with her own self-conscious, she wouldn’t have felt this horrible. (Assuming she does since she probably had mourned about it) Poor Jessica who was just minding her own business for a fan meet in China or whatever only to be informed that morning that she will never be promoting as a GG member anymore. I mean. Double what the fuck?
That is just plain fucked up.
There are sources that say SM had kicked Jessica out of SNSD but not the entertainment itself. If that makes sense. Honestly, what was going through SM’s mind when they did this? I can only imagine.
Maybe it was because Jessica wanted to start her own fashion business or whatever. But can I just say that that is completely unfair? There are other SM artists out there running their own businesses and cafes or whatever and they don’t seem to get flamed for it. What did Jessica do to deserve that kind of treatment? (Talk about a major double standard here.)
Other people had said that it was the SNSD members themselves who have decided to kick Jessica out of the team for ‘side-tracking’. That doesn’t even make sense at all. Every member in SNSD or any music group out there for that matter has the right to be diverse and do their own solo activities, Jessica included. I anything really, the members should cheer her on and hopefully Jessica might give them free sunglasses from her new collection before everybody else could purchase them. Just saying.
Again. SM and the SNSD members need to realize that SNSD is aging and that they can’t sing pop songs in an idol group forever. SNSD has an end to it. Jessica doing her business (this sounds ambiguous, lol) is smart. At the end of the day, Jessica has to do something to be able to put food on the table and have a roof above her head. Not only will the business benefit Jessica financially, but Jessica would also gain international recognition (something that most Korean idol groups yearn for) from the fashion business and it’s people and followers. If she were to stay in GG, she would be famously and professionally known as Jessica Jung from Girls’ Generation by a completely new (read: different and fresh) audience. It will also boost GG’s popularity in a way. But instead, she is known as Jessica Jung, creative director of Blanc and Eclare, who managed her business alone (and was skid away from GG.)
When fellow SNSD member Tiffany said on the last episode of Korean variety/talk show Strong Heart that she wanted SNSD to stay together after decades just like The Spice Girls did, I was happy. I mean, wouldn’t that be cool? They would be able to reminiscent of the old times where they had to act cutesy for the camera. But after Jessica’s incident, I’m starting to think that kpop idols often say those kinds of things just for the sake of saying it.
I’m not saying that Tiffany is fake, per se, and she probably meant what she had said back then. But SNSD as nine has been around for nearly a decade, their sisterhood bond should be almost unbreakable. And I assume nine is like their magic lucky number or something. It was such as shame that all those years they have spent together was thrown away down into the drain. How they could have turned their backs coldly and so fast against Jessica was mind-boggling. SNSD has been together for such a long time; they probably trained together back in the days. It’s unbelievable that their minds could change so easily about each other.
This makes me think that they could easily stab the next person in the group without any hesitation if they were to misbehave even the slightest bit. It is a sad thought indeed.
It also irks me that people say that Jessica is only still relevant because SNSD made her well known. Okay, that’s acceptable. But, I’m just going to put it out there that there a buckload of Gorjess Spazzers (Jessica’s official individual fan club name) who will support Jessica no matter what group she is in or whatever activities she might be doing. PREACH. Okay. Jessica is also one of the members that are slightly more popular. I dare say even that Jessica had also boosted SNSD’S popularity in a sense. SM made the wrong move to kick Jessica out. What is SNSD without our gorjess (JESSICA’S FLAMMIN’-JAMMIN’ WORDPLAY) ice princess? Incomplete. Jessica might not be the prettiest looking one like Yoona or the most talented in terms of singing and dancing like Taeyeon and Hyoyeon respectively, but that’s okay. Jessica is Jessica and we love her for she truly is. She adds color and depth to SNSD.
The situation really is vague that is saddens me to my core that the only thing I am able to do is speculate. In a recent interview, Jessica mentioned that she had no intentions on meeting Yuri when the both of them were in Hong Kong. Friendship over? That is just sad. Jessica even looked uncomfortable at the slight mention of GG. But then again, kpop has never really been the best at sisterhood/brotherhood relationships. Leave that to real people with real bonds!
There are so many other things I want to point out but these are all the things I can’t think off at the top of my head right now. Again, this is solely my opinion about the whole situation and I hope you respect that. My opinions shouldn’t change what you think about it and remember, other people’s opinions matter! You can have your own and I am entitled to mine. The same ol’ same ol’ agree to disagree. I will always support Jessica even if she has to stand alone on stage or a platform or whatever she has to stand on to be on a higher level than everybody else. I will also continue being a SONE even if SNSD will continue to promote as 8. I’m pretty sure the girls don’t feel too great about the situation as well. Everybody’s trying to maintain a tough exterior! Anyways, I would love to hear what you have to say about the situation also!
s/b: I don’t need butthurt SONEs telling me to fuck off and jump off a cliff. I have other shit to attend to. Thank you.
I am not an expert on most of the things I write guides about, but my
information either comes from my own experience, or from a ton of
research (and no, Wikipedia is not real research). Like everyone else, I
can make mistakes, so if I ever get something wrong, please let me
When this season started and with this Clexa thing, i was so convinced that in no way in hell will we get romantic Bellarke this season. But the more i watch scenes of them, the more i regret what i said. Do you think it's too soon for Bellarke romance?
I do not think it’s too soon for Bellarke romance. I made my prediction early on. I think at about 3.05 (not sure I remember exactly when I decided.) C/L were dark days for Bellarke fans, because, on the surface of it, Polis looked a lot like a romantic fairy tale, but the thing is, C/L was never set up as end game. This world has people losing their loves, and moving on. Because it’s about survival, not finding your knight in shining armor and riding off into the sunset with your prince/ss on the back of a white horse.
This show is about struggling, making the wrong choices, understanding people, learning lessons, fighting to survive, finding the thing that makes survival worth living.
If you look at Polis as an epic love story between a princess and a noble warrior queen, then the whole show is now ruined with her death. It’s basically over. Bellarke can never ever happen and Clarke must continue on forever without love, as a sad shell of herself.
But Polis wasn’t an epic love story. Polis was about a girl (Clarke, not Lexa) who was running away from herself, her pain, her people, and those that she loved (including Bellamy.) It was about giving her life over to Lexa, because it was less painful to have Lexa take charge than it was to face her friends and make the hard decisions herself. And Polis was also about her encountering this new world and learning lessons in it that could relate back to her own life, and slowly heal herself that way.
If Polis is about the Clarke’s journey back to herself, then loving Lexa isn’t about true love, but about Clarke making peace with her own choices, the tragic and deadly decisions she made (which were almost ALL connected to Lexa, either as an enemy or as an ally). It was inevitable that Clarke leave Lexa and go back to face her people and her REAL self. Because the show is about Clarke becoming a hero, and the lessons she learns along the way. Incidentally, that makes Lexa a lesson, not a soul mate.
Heading back to the sky people, Clarke returns to herself. Returns to her people. And returns to her partner, the same partner she ran from, leaving him to do all the work. She most specifically was returning to Bellamy. When she left, she said good bye TO HIM. Bellamy was the one who risked his life to find and the one she sacrificed her life to spare. Bellamy was the one who told her to come home to her people (”come home to yours” he said.) And Bellamy was the one who woke her up the reality of the game she was playing, her abandonment of their people and the pain she caused HIM. HIM in specific. When she rejoins the group with Jasper, Bellamy is the first person she sees.
Bellamy has been on a similar journey, facing all his demons and pain and the harm he’s caused and coming to terms with his role and responsibility as a leader. Discovering who he is as a person and more importantly why he does what he does.
Clarke and Bellamy have been on separate hero’s journeys. “Hero” doesn’t mean they fight in battles and win. “Hero” doesn’t mean they sacrifice their lives for other people. “Hero” doesn’t mean the handsome/beautiful/awesome character that everyone looks up to. “Hero” doesn’t even mean that they are the main character, not in these terms. The hero’s journey is a mythic path of transformation in which an ordinary person becomes a hero who transforms the world around them.
What’s different about THIS hero’s journey, is that it has a paired set of heroes. We get TWO journeys this season, separate, but always tied together, and in the end, returning to each other.
I suspect that their individual hero’s journeys have ended as they have made it through their own personal “belly of the beasts” and have returned to their normal, which is together. Now I think they will undertake a shared hero’s journey. These characters have already been too linked together in the symbology of the show. They ARE the head and the heart and there is no way for them to survive without each other. And survival is the name of the game.
The whole of this season has been about Clarke and Bellamy working out their shit precisely so they could come together. TOGETHER. And yes, that means romantically. And if we’re lucky, physically.
Because the biggest fight this season, the biggest demon they must conquer has one weakness.
So what strength do Clarke and Bellamy have? What has Clarke relearned how to do in Polis? What drives Bellamy as his motivating force?
So what story between Bellamy and Clarke is it time to tell?
