I literally do not care for all this gemsplaining or if you are dance inclusionist or exclusionist all I know is
I AM GAY and YOU ARE GAY?? wlw solidarity?? you heard of it or???
I REALLY LOVE FUSION DANCING and want. it. back.
AMETHYST deserves to DANCE LIKE THAT without Pearl’s judgement only because it is ??sexual?? and not about her!
On that topic, I want to see a thin femme gem handle a big gem with the softness they always get? And I want butch gems be allowed to be seen as graceful or soft? You know what the issue is if you are even remotely aware of the topics in su criticism??
The Rubies perform gymnastics. A cheerleading routine. That can be seen as a form of dancing. It’s good enough for me. It’s great.
The dancing is done to synchronize forms which same gems would not require. I get this is why Amethyst and Steven didn’t need it but they could have had the funniest sweetest moves together….
Stevonnie doesn’t require anything cus two humans yes wow good lore
YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THEY ACTUALLY DON’T DANCE NOT BECAUSE OF SOME ELABORATE PLAN OF GOOD WRITEY BUT BECAUSE THEY A BUNCH OF CHEAP ‘O CUTTIN CORNERS!!
None of these boys can dance Not a single one of them stand a chance All of them girls a mess I’ve seen it all before, I’m not impressedNone of them get my sex None of them move my intellect None of them work for me None of them make me feel anything
At it again Skam, with the best song choices ever in the history of television
Even though there are several members of NCT that everyone can recognise, some of the best talent has yet to escape the dark, damp room that is SM’s basement. With no way of telling who exactly is contracted under SM, there are certain undebuted idols who are hiding down there despite being popular in the NCT fandom. In case you don’t know who SM is keeping hidden from us, here is a handy guide.
Side Note - a lot of the trainees in the SM Basement are officially unannounced, so a lot of information is unknown and what we can find might not be correct
FINAL AUTHOR’S PICK for TOP 11 PRODUCE 101 Season 2
Well I think everyone here could make their own version/pick.
I’ll make one. Pendi’s Top 11 Picks for Produce 101 Season 2
1. Pledis Entertainment’s Kim Jong Hyun - LEADER
I think everyone of us agreed that he should be up in the top 11 taking the title of Leader. He experienced being a leader not just in produce 101, but even before when he was still an active member of NU'EST. He already taste the bitter-sweet of becoming an idol and how tough it is to become one of them and have to take his pride down and join the Produce 101. With the right mentality, and wisdom, there is no one in Produce 101 (all at least so far from what we saw) can touch Kim Jonghyun in term of his capability to be a leader. Otherwise he is so talented and a soulful rapper with a great dance ability too. So he is no doubt would be on top 11 with his recent rank as no 1 in rap and also no 1 in overall 2nd ranking announcement.
2. MMO Entertainment’s Kang Daniel - JUST DO ANYTHING
As beautiful his face and smile is. He is really the heart robber. He has great personality and motivation. I know he may got into some controversial act before, and cheating is really such an unhonorable act, with that being said, his personality and talent show that he is more than that. His attitude on the screen also shows that he is responsible and have a good fighting spirit. He is incredible with his dancing b-boy thing, and rapping and singing. He does improve a lot too, there are still room to grow even though he is already in Class A. With the right attitude and willing to learn & grow, he is a good example to be a great idol.
3. Fantagio’s Ong Song Sung Woo - VISUAL
He is already my favorite since the first episode, but until Kang Daniel came and shows his cuteness. LOL. But he is the man of dance and popping God. His jokes and Gag talents is also worth to count. With great visual and stage presence he is for me one of the best stage & expression experts. His dance skills also great and also his attitude and how he cares about others. He knows how to put himself in different kind of situation, for me he is a man with many talents, without trying to hard to show off and he got his way to impress people effortlessly. and he is more than ready to steal your heart right from the first impression to his long career ahead.
4. Brave Entertainment’s Kim Samuel - DANCE
I don’t understand why people doesn’t seem to agree that he deserve to be in the top 11. Even the trainers and national representative the Queen BoA fall in love with him and he is the first trainee to get into the A Class (based on the show). With his young age and how much he loves to dance and how much he spent his life practicing and dancing and how much he shows that he really want this is just.. beautiful. I really appreciate him to keep going and keep the fighting spirit. He is also respected by other trainees with his talents and I think he already shows improvement of his singing skills to.
5. Chun Entertainment’s Kim Yong Guk - VOCAL
He really shows his charm and how good his vocal is in the “If It Is You” performance. I think he is another good example on how much an underdog can do more and be success with his talent and not just his face. He has amazing vocal who can give different color to the group, I think he has so much potential and he doesn’t have a problem with following the choreography, so he is up in top 5 for me.
6. Individual Trainee Kim Jae Hwan - VOCAL
He is no dubbed the best vocal in P101 now. But he is more than his vocal. I his personality and charms he shows during the interview. I really like the way he talk and how he is honest and not so greedy for a position (maybe because he is already got the top posisition). But I think he is a must in term for vocal ability to be put in the top 11. And I am glad everyone have voted and put him in the top 11, for his talents, not just for a pretty boy with no talents.
7. CUBE Entertainment’s Lai Guan Lin - RAP
Talking about pretty boy without talent, the first time I saw him in the top 11 in the first voting result, and how he perform in front of the trainer for the first time, I basicly hate him for being in the top 11 with pretty face with no (I mean still in the making) talent & ability. But through out the show he shows how he is so passionate in rap and his ability to write and compose rap for his performance is amazing. He also know how to put great performance on stage, and I really appreciate him. It is not just a talent but his attitude also counts. I think everyone is working hard and everyone is also trying hard. But to put that hard work into something that is a great performance, I think he nailed it. Love his voice.
8. Brand New Music’s Park Woo Jin - DANCE
I am agreed with everything Jenny said. He is one of my favorite now after the get ugly episode. Just seeing him saying “I’m Doomed” is cute and how he reacts to the first time he saw the Get Ugly Team. But I think he has a solid talent for vocal and dance. He is the perfect example for not craving for high ranks, just do and give the best, and now he got in the top 11. Love him so much.
9. MAROO Entertainment’s Park Ji Hoon - VISUAL
Honestly I hope to see more talent from him, not just his visual. I think he has been to focus on how to act cute and come up with new trademark after the wink. But I know he is good tho, being in the Class B means he is great, and I think it is a safe choice to include him to the top 11 as we are talking about IDOLS, and boy like him with his charms and talents is one solid yes for an Idol.
10. C9 Entertainment’s Bae JinYoung - VOCAL
He is just charming in many ways. With that shy not-so-confident personality is cute but also shame. He should know how good he is, he is charming in many ways, his face, his voice, his dance, his one covered eye, his stage presence, his smile. I am glad that he shows more smile and prove he is great on stage in the recent My Little Girl performance. I am just so happy to watch his performance with his smile through out the performance, and we also haven’t talk about his performance the ballad song downpour, his voice is just great. And I shipped him with Jihoon haha
11. Brand New Music’s Lee Dae Hwi - VOCAL
It hurts my heart that he has lesser screen time now, but he proves to have more to show and more ideas and more stage presence in every performance he is on. I think he has so many talent and potential. Hope he can become more confident than ever and overcome all the hates he got.
What just top 11? But I really can’t leave this one. He is a great center to, I love all his stage presence, the smirk, the stares, the gaze. I think he is also have a solid vocal too. He is experienced and I think he deserve to be in the top 11. He has all the idol material, handsome, tall, sharp, and charming. He is price charming and he really completed the group as a whole. so please let him be in the top 11.
Other trainees that I hope to be in the top 11 is actually Lee Woo Jin, although I know he might be hard to fit in, but I love himm.. #13 - VOCAL
Choi Min Ki & Dong Ho - it hurts my heart to hear they story and how they struggle to survive the idol life and music industry. As all the talents they got, they really are ready to get another chance to debut. But I think not in this group. I hope they both get success in the future. - #14 #15 VISUAL - VOCAL
Takeda Kenta. He is great I think he got all and everything you need as an idol, but poorly we have less interaction with him. Less interview, less screen time. But he nailed all the performance and I love him so much. #16 - VOCAL
Yoon Jae Sung he is incredible person and i just want to see him more and more. He is just hillarious. - #17 - I dont know what suitable position for him. Maybe Vocal or Responsible for GAG & VARIETY SHOW
Jung Se Woon - I love his understanding and his vocal. He is great, and it is waste of talent if he doesnt debut soon. #18 - VOCAL
Lim Young Min & Kim Dong Hyun: Everyone from Brand New Music is ridiculously attractive to me. I think both of them have reputable capability as a rapper. Coming from the rap agency I think they have the quality looks and talent becoming an idol. #19 #20 - RAP
Ardor & Able trainees Noh Tae Hyun & Ha Sungwoon. Both are in Class A and super talented in dancing, but sadly they lack of screen time. I am happy for Taehyun he really still the spotlight in the position challenge. He did super great as the leader and choreographer for Shape of You, and he is just the best dancer in P101 for me. Next Ha Sungwoon who recently hopelessly and relentlessly trying hard to be get notice and to keep being in the competition. I think he has a great personality, and work ethic. #21 & #22 DANCE
LEE EUI WONG
AHN HYEONG SEOB
I dont know how they survive, for me their stage is average, but I think if you just be positive, and smile, and hard working enough, you’ll get notice.

i mean it’s not even senior prom, shaw is still a junior, but it’s the first sock hop they’ve had since root rolled into town so this is now officially (to shaw) The Fucking Dance
she and root have been out a few times before, but she’s never asked her to go steady, so she’s pretty nervous to ask her to be her date
and how does it even work when neither of them is a cis dude? who asks who? shaw doesn’t like to think about it
she assumes responsibility because when has root ever been straight forward about anything in her young gay life
so shaw’s once again trying out different poses to achieve the Maximum Cool Effect while she waits for root by her locker
she decides to go with the “leaning against the wall with one leg against the wall while dramatically looking in the other direction to pretend im not waiting for root, this is just a total coincidence i have no idea what you’re talking about” look
this, of course, is completely ruined by root sneaking up on shaw and whispering “how’s it going, stud?” directly into her ear
shaw jumps eight feet in the air and nearly falls on her face
“you’re gonna be the death of me” shaw grumbles, straightening her leather jacket
“that’s what i’m aiming for, sugar. now what’s got you so rattled, hmm?”
shit this is it
this is The Moment
play it cool shaw, play it cool
shaw jams her hands in her pockets and glares at the floor. “i was wonderin’ if you wanted to go to the dance”
“well i’m not normally much for dancing, sameen. two left feet and all, you know how it is”, root replies playfully
why does root make everything so difficult
“i was WONDERING if you wanted to go to the dance /with me/, ya happy?”
“took you long enough baby” root smirks. and then she just turns and walks away
“don’t call me baby!” shaw shouts after her
“i’ll stop calling you baby when you stop blushing when i say it, /baby/” root calls back
shaw pouts a little and kicks a locker
she’s not blushing. she’s never blushed in her entire life. not ever.
she pauses after a moment
“wait” she mutters, and then yells “ROOT. WAS THAT A YES. ROOT?”
at the end of the hallway, root pauses and turns around
“““winks”““ at shaw
and keeps on walking
“ROOT THAT’S NOT A WINK AND THAT’S NOT AN ANSWER COME ON.”
when will shaw not be suffering? answer: never
see: the night of the dance
shaw’s really trying, okay?
she wants to put in the extra mile if she’s gonna show up with root on her arm
root’s classy, she has style and shaw wants them to look good together
so instead of shaw’s usual badass greaser in leather style, she goes for a more preppy approach
we’re talking a nice polo,
cuffed, tapered chinos and a skinny belt. even converse instead of the usual combat boots. her hair’s in a goddamn ponytail
her parents are confused by the transformation but shaw’s totally rocking it and they make sure to tell her so
she nearly skips out to her car on the way to pick up root she’s so hecking excited
she ever so carefully steers her car down the streets to root’s place, parks, and hops out of the car to ring the door bell
in typical 1950′s fashion, root’s dad answers the door with a frown
“um. i’m here for root.”
he raises an unimpressed eyebrow.
“i’m here for root…sir?”
“there’s no one here by that name, kid. now scram.”
shaw’s 115% sure that’s some grade a bullshit, and as he tries to close the door on her face, she sticks her foot out
the pain’s totally gonna be worth it, shaw thinks, blinking back tears
“sir, please! i’m just here to take your daughter to the dance tonight! we’ll be back by ten! i’ll drive 15 under the speed limit the entire time!”
that last one is a total lie, but she has to try
he flings the door open once more and looks her up and down
“i don’t want someone like /you/ anywhere near my daughter. and if i see your face around here one more time, you can bet i’ll call the proper authorities.”
shaw pales and backs up a few steps. she’s a badass, but even a badass has limits
root’s father smirks and slams the door shut
shaw did NOT come all this way for nothing. and she didn’t dress like some brain, like HAROLD, for nothing. she bought the damn corsage and you can bet your sweet ass she’s taking root to the stupid dance
not even the threat of jail, even the asylum, is gonna keep her away
she’s just gonna need to think smarter
she sneaks around to root’s bedroom window and starts tossing pebbles
“rooooot. root. root root root.”
“oh my gosh she’s the next window over!”
she tosses a few more pebbles (at the correct window this time) and finally root’s head appears
“what the hell, root? what was that at the front door?”
“sorry sammy! i was supposed to get to the door first, but i got a little distracted finishing my outfit. i’d like to think it was worth it though.” she calls, with a winning smile
“it’s just a stupid dress”, shaw hisses, “how long could it…possibly…”
shaw’s struck dumb
she was already mentally prepared to see root all dolled up in a nice department store dress. she was ready for her extra shiny hair and lipstick
but she was absolutely not ready for root in tight leather pants and high heels and a tight red off the shoulder top
root adjusts shaw’s shirt collar and coos “aww sameen! you didnt have to dress up all nice for little ol’ me.”
“…you know we don’t have to go to the dance. we could just go somewhere and park. that would be fine.”
“mmm, but what kinda girl would that make me, sam?”
shaw reaches into her back pocket and pulls out a slightly flattened, but beautiful corsage made of orchids
she grabs root’s hand and strokes it softly “mine. if you wanted.”
“cute,” root mutters, looking away, “but if you think that some pretty flowers are getting you some backseat bingo…”
shaw frowns. “hey, look at me. look at how i’m dressed right now. i don’t dress like finch for just anyone, okay? i care about you. and this doesn’t come with strings, root. you know i’m no shuck.”
root grins a little. “i was really looking forward to showing you off to all those mouth breathers.”
“we still can if you want. or we can just drive around and park.”
“and not talk?” root bites back.
shaw holds both her hands up in defense. “you said it, not me. we don’t have to talk but we don’t have to do anything else either.”
“plus”, shaw adds softly, “i don’t think you want anyone telling your dad we were…”
“yeah” root sighs, just a softly.
root grabs the corsage and slips it on. she grabs shaw’s hand and leads her back to the car
“you still wanna go?” shaw asks nervously
“i just want to spend time with you, sameen.”
shaw starts the car “i know a place. it’s still pretty early so no one will be looking for us.”
they end up at the park by the water
“we can have our own dance right here.”
“there’s no music.”
“…at least i can show you off to these ducks.”
“there’s that smile! now come on, the first one who dances into a duck buys the other milkshakes.”
this, of course, leads to some aggressive dancing and throwing each other around in a very obvious attempt at sabotage
the great duck war ends with shaw’s nice new pants being sacrificed to the mud, and with shaw buying root’s milkshakes for the rest of the school year
