What? Have you ever met a LESS ambitious person? He could do literally anything he wanted to the world. He could start or end wars. He could restructure the government. He could end hunger and poverty. He could appoint himself king of everything. And what does he do? He skips lines and makes people tell him their secrets!
I want to cry… I feel like we lose another beautiful soul every single day.
Protect trans kids. Protect them before they become a hashtag. Protect them while they’re still around. Protect them because a 41% suicide attempt rate is too god damn high. Protect them because we shouldn’t be losing another kid every other day just because of their gender identity.
Protect transgender kids, please, I beg of you.
Hey. Hey Guys. Do you know what’s pointless? Shipping Wars.
Especially in big comic books franchises such as DC or Marvel.
Seriously, shipping wars are just crazy in general and shouldn’t happen. Asking everyone to ship your ship is like asking everyone to have the same favorite food. IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.What you think is gross someone else thinks is wonderful. Everyone will think things differently.
But since people seem to have to have a reason not to start a shipping war (LONG SIGH) here’s one for comic couples.
Okay, just hear me out. (Long post warning). So lately I’ve been getting back into the Teen titans Franchise by watching some of the new movies and old TV shows. After watching Judas Contract and Teen Titans vs Justice League i became a huge Damirae shipper. (Or demonbirds).
And i thought at one point ‘these two have so much potential and are so great together! I wish they were a couple in the TV show, it would have been so awesome!’
Then I thought, ‘Uh, no it wouldn’t have. Damien didn’t exist in the tv show. She’s with beast boy in the TV show because, for one thing, he actually exists in the show.’
Are you following me?
No? Okay, here’s another example.
When i was little I always assumed rogue and ice-man were a couple in everything because of the movies. But when I watched x-men evolution I loved Rogue and Gambit. Not only that, but Rogue is with a bunch of people in different media’s. Gambit, Cody, ice-man, magneto…
Do you get it now?
Its because the wonderful creators of comic books have blessed us readers with the ultimate solution to every shipping war or argument for one in the world!
(Ya ya, cheers in the back ground, yahhhhh).
Let me explain.
Comic story lines have been re-made and restarted so many times. There are probably hundreds of ‘first stories’ to X-men or as we all know, way to many spider man movies. And in these stories the story often changes. New characters, new worlds and…new couples.
So when someone says ‘this couple is canon and this one isn’t,’ that’s not always true in comics. Because in different worlds there are different couples.
Welcome to canon heaven everybody!
So many ships are cannon! No ship is ‘better’ than another because since there are so many different worlds one could be cannon in one and not cannon in another. There is no ‘better’ when there are so many different versions!
If you don’t like one ship then there are so many ways to just get fuel for another in a different story!
Don’t like the fact that Natasha was romantic with Bruce in Avengers 2? That’s fine, go find yourself some BuckyNat in the comics!
Not a fan of Superman and Wonderwomen in the new comics? Alright, go to justice league where wonder women’s shipped with batman or old superman shows that have him with Louis.
Heck, we all know Batman’s dated a ton of people.
Seriously, there are lists about how many kids Wolverine has with different women in different universe’s.
Guys, we can all chill! Everyone can be happy with there ships because there are so many versions and they are all great!.
And for the argument ‘oh, but this ship is so much better than this other one’ doesn’t work in this line. Because maybe it is in one comic, but in say a TV show it may not be. They are both cannon and they could both be equally good, just not in the same version.
Heck, even the non-canon ships don’t need to fret! in a few years there may be a reboot that your couple could become canon! Who knows?
Feel free to add opinions or arguments for different franchises on the end. I’m pretty sure i forgot half of what i was going to say anyway. But in general i think a majority of us at least can agree on one thing.
Most of the
theories now are focused on Demian by Hermann Hesse…
book suddenly being sold out everywhere…
If you are
asked for three words that would explain HYYH what would they be?
In my opinion…
it would be… Youth… Struggle… Dreams
words for Demian? Youth… Struggle… Will
Overarching summary of the book:
Demian is the coming of age story
of Sinclair. Hesse's Demian dealt
with the problem and experience of change. It was written during the First
World War which is often seen as a time during which the world was robbed of
its innocence. In the story, Sinclair meets this older boy named
Demian who comes in different points of his life to usher him into maturity. Demian
opens Sinclair’s eyes to see the world in a new perspective. One of his main perspectives was that there is
no pure evil and no pure good. That if one is not limited by what society deems
as good and evil then one can attain his will or want better.
Another important character is
Eva, she is Demian’s mom. She is beautiful in both masculine and feminine sense. She is, for Sinclair, what
Demian cannot be. Demian is Sinclair’s friend and mentor; Eva acts as
Sinclair’s mother and the object of his romantic love. Like Demian, Eva’s
primary role is to help Sinclair develop appropriately.
Sinclair does meet more people along the way, all
helping him figure out more about himself. But Every so often his path crosses
with Demian. Eva taught Sinclair a trick to find her, he said that Sinclair
just needs to will all his energy and she will send someone like her to be with
him. (take note of this, I’ll explain it later)He tried it once and was surprised when it worked and Demian stood beside
him. During the war, Sinclair did the same thing and Demian was suddenly beside
him. Demian tells
Sinclair that if he ever feels like he needs help, he no longer needs to call
Demian. He simply needs to look inside himself and he will see that Demian is
within him. With that, Demian gives him a light kiss on the lips—a kiss that he
says is from Frau Eva—and vanishes into the night.
Sooo… who is who… and what is what… in my opinion:
I think… Each pairing are each other’s Demians and
Sinclairs helping each other reach the enlightenment that maturity supposedly
Yes they each have their individual roads of struggle
towards self discovery and they did some things that society would deem
bad/evil while they were together.
Messing up restos…
but none of them were bad enough to cause themselves true
harm. They had more difficulty traversing through their lives alone though,
Damien without Sinclair… Sinclair without Damien… meant a road of self
discovery alone and that’s when things got messier.
Remember, you can smile as long as we’re together?
All symbolisms in the short films point towards this. Kookie being first, showed the connection of HYYH story to Demian. It shows the
importance of the pair ups and how relevant they are to each other. Shout out
to Namjoon for the narrations that finally led us to interpret the stories this
way, with their deeper meaning…
In terms of story lines, each pair has one and the short
films gave us a peek on what happened to the pair. The short films I think are
their mid-points where they have to come into terms with losing their Demians.
Sugakookie: Sparrow Hawk
In my opinion, SugaKookie shows that they are
each other’s Damien and Sinclair the most. The way they were both struggling but
were supporting each other and watching over the other was very evident. To Suga, he is Sinclair
and Kookie is his Demian, his companion to self discovery. And Kookie is the
same way with Suga. Story wise? Either they both died or just Yoongi. You
probably read other theories, birds are omens of death. Yoongi legit caught fire so
many times in so many ways.
I do think something happened to Kookie that led to Yoongi’s decision to have a need for this hot gif.
Their fight in Run was the turning point in their relationship. Suga, the raged-alcoholic fighting the run-away angst-y teenage Kookie led to Kookie leaving and the accident. Suga felt the guilt, which is why in Run Jap MV you could see him with all the broken shards of glass. The fight was his biggest regret. (BTW: I think that was what Run Jap MV showed, each HYYH character’s biggest regret. I never wrote this down, I just shared this to anyone who will listen.)
symbolisms in #Begin were proof of their pairing and Yoongi’s fire bending. You’d think Kookie died too due to the
crash but the sparrow hawk in the end of #Begin makes me hope that death is not
the only possible ending.
What is thesparrow hawk? The bird represents a desire
to break free, to be independent. We’ve
seen birds all throughout this era. Symbolically,
this shows that this yearning has been present from the very beginning, as with the book. The big sparrow in the end indicates that Kookie has reached within himself to
activate the part of him that longs to be set free.
Suicides see death as a form of freedom. Another possibility?
Kookie didn’t die and #Begin is not the afterlife but a state of limbo one
enters during coma. While in the subconscious he found out and came to terms
with losing Yoongi and will learn how to live independently (If you are the
optimist). So this could be the case or not…
Well, Safe to say, in #Lie Jimin was in the loony
bin. Probably trying to cope with his loss of his Demian, Jhope.
If Sugakookie had the sparrow hawk, Jihope had the
apple. The apple, which like in the Bible, was what Sinclair would point out as
the cause of his first misdeed. To relate with the village boys, Sinclair
lied that he stole apples from the orchard. A character named Kromer blackmails
Sinclair to pay for Kromer’s silence. This led Sinclair to do another misdeed.
He stole to pay Kromer. The apples started his loop of misdeeds and him being under the control of blackmailing bullies who threatened to turn him in. Who saved Sinclair from this loop? Damien.
This only leads me to believe that Jimin is also
Sinclair, lost without his Damien to stop the loop he is trapped in. How many times did Jimin try to kill himself
in I Need U? Showcasing depression and addiction as the misdeed that loops is very fitting, in my opinion.
Speaking of addiction, Jhope. Jhope could be dead or just not with Jimin inside the loony bin
anymore. We did see them both in the hospital in Run. Jhope may have had drug dependency issues due to his Narcolepsy and wanted to cure himself of this. Hence the throwing of pills and the hospital, or in my opinion, rehab scene with Jimin (the kid with depression/suicidal tendencies).
People think that Jhope died on the bridge. He admitted
to being a narcoleptic though and the fall could have been an episode. So this
could be the case or not…
VMon’s struggles portrays the idea of no pure good and no pure
evil concept the best in all the story lines which is why #Stigma showed a significant name from the Demian story, Abraxas.
Demian was the one who told Sinclair about Abraxas. He
explained that the God Christians worshipped was pure good and for us to
understand the world, we should understand not only what is good but also what
is evil. That is Abraxas. He is a mystical deity? entity? who is both God and
Satan, good and evil rolled into one. Hesse wanted to further show the blurry line between all good and all evil. This pair shows that not everything is just black and white. They were the only pair who legit
committed a felony together. YOLO much?
We have always seen Namjoon going about his life as if
dis-attached from everyone (aside from their ot7 and paired up flash backs). He
had work and lived alone, just normal day to day.
Two significant clues that link Namjoon to #Stigma are the spray paint and phone booth. In the end of #Stigma, V
requested his one call. Remember Jap Run MV with Namjoon in the telephone
booth? He was never able to answer that call, I think. Does this make him bad? Is he purely bad for living his own life?
V, Sinclair has been left behind by his Demian,
Namjoon. The puppy in #Stigma? The puppy was V’s innocence. It was trusting and innocent and it left him when the walls came down. He lost his innocence along the way, due
to everything he had to go through.
V jumping towards the water in prologue and
re-emerging after much struggle doesn’t necessarily mean that he died. In most cultures, water is a symbol for cleansing and renewal. It could be a symbolism of his road from wanting
freedom to finally attaining it in himself. His freedom was attained through murder.
He willed for his freedom and did an act that society would deem immoral. Was
that act pure evil though?
Jin, I think is Eva, the compassionate character watching
over the Sinclairs and Demians. In te book, she loves and coddles Sinclair, commiserating
with him about the hard times he had during his adolescence. At the same time,
however, she is strong and commanding, exhorting him to become more in touch
with and confident of his desires. Eva is a symbol of perfection and
completion; she encompasses everything.
everything, he is part of each one’s journey but at the same time has little
control over it. I am seriously looking forward to how they will cap off Jin’s
So Eva told Sinclair that if he willed all his energy she will send someone like her to be with Sinclair, right? Can you list down how many times these happened in HYYH Series? Where one person just opens a door or closes their eyes and suddenly another person (or more would suddenly) be beside them?
I didn’t want to go through every little detail and assume a different meaning for each little hint and symbolism. So there.
(This next question might bring me hell… but… ) What do
you think guys?
“Youth has no age. It just stays there, beautifully. And it is everyone who id chasing their dream. Rapmon, Jin, Suga, J-Hope,Jimin, V, and Jungkook. We are also part of the youth who are chasing the stars. So you can call us young, and we will never get old.” ~ RM, Youth Intro
I will be updating this post as more stuff unfold so make sure to check the original post to see the updates! ( ˘ ³˘)♥ Thanks, guys!

We’re all at this hotel in Beijing to promote the movie, so we quickly ran down the hall to Ryan’s room and barged in. He had Emma on Facetime on his phone, so we just kind of screamed in each other’s faces for a few minutes.
‘Johnny Depp and Damien Echols’ words did not fall on deaf ears though. At 7 p.m. on Good Friday, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen issued a temporary restraining order preventing the Arkansas execution of six men. The state’s Supreme Court had already halted the execution of a seventh man earlier today, according to The New York Times.
