despite this song is not about love i think that the lyrics suits them

Something They Don’t Know

Prompt: In which Daveed Diggs is asked how he comes up with his lyrics during an interview. Told in his POV.

Warning: Smut.

A/N: Day 5 of the write-a-thon. Of course I would post this early when all I’ve been complaining about is not having enough time to write. Oh well. Also, I’m sure Nadeska Alexis is a cool girl, I just needed her to behave this certain way to get the story going. Enjoy!


Daveed slips his phone into his pocket and stood to give Nadeska Alexis a handshake once she enters the dressing room, Lin’s advice on how to handle the tricky reporter reverberating in his mind. Having done the Complex interview with Chance previously, he warned him about her ruthlessness and her inclination to pry for scandalous information she could share with her readers. Lin told Daveed to be polite, courteous, and above all, smile through the “little white lies” he would have to tell.

“Mr. Diggs, it’s unfortunate that the rest of the crew couldn’t make it,” she says, turning on her recorder and sliding it on the table that separated them, “but I’m glad you were able to come in despite the late notice.”

Daveed lets out a nervous chuckle when she ignores his gesture, his hand still awkwardly hovering between the two of them, and opts to bring out her notebook and pen from her purse instead. He was never the best with interviews, especially when he was by himself, dressed in clothes he couldn’t afford and sitting in a room that was too sophisticated for his tastes. He wished William and Jonathan were here – they understood his ineptness when it came to talking to new people and would definitely take over the interview. But since they couldn’t, he had to man up and promote the new album releasing in a week.

Nadeska sits, and Daveed follows suit, watching as she flips to a page full of questions that she’s prepared. Luckily, the first few questions were predictable –  how he adjusted to life after Hamilton, his role in Blackish, the release of the album, and the upcoming tour -  all he could answer easily and truthfully. But when she suddenly leans forward, a gleam in her eyes that screamed trouble, Daveed knew it was time to make use of Lin’s advice: smile through the little white lies. 

“So, clipping doesn’t exactly have the most innocent songs,” Nadeska hums, choosing her words carefully, “and some of them require a repeat listen. Your lyrics are curt but very complex, Mr. Diggs.  Mind if I throw a few lines at you to elaborate on? And if you could perhaps share what, or who,inspired you to write them?”

[TRANS] BTS Japan Official Fanclub Magazine - Suga’s Biography

A mischievous kid growing up into a boy who enjoys reading 

I was born in Daegu in the South, the third biggest city of Korean, and grew up there until I came up to Seoul. When I was young, I was pretty much an ordinary kid. I loved playing around so my kindergarten teacher didn’t seem to like me. (laughs) I remember being scolded “It’s dangerous!” a lot. I also loved sports and was good at running, to the point of being picked as a relay runner from elementary school all the way up to high school. When it comes to studying, I’m slightly above average. 

I used to love playing outside with friends back then, but I changed as I grew up. Even when we went outside, it wasn’t like we did anything, we just gathered at the park. I wasn’t fond of that so many times I just stayed at home on weekends. My mother told me to go outside and meet my friends sometimes. (laughs) 

I had a thing for collecting, so I collected a lot of books when I was young. It was a time when I wanted to be a cultured man, wanted to pretend I know things too. Mature stuffs that didn’t suit my age or novels, poetry books, essays, newspapers,… I read everything regardless of genre. I don’t know why but up till middle school, I had the habit of reading books from the back page. I still read books sometimes now. My reading speed gets faster by reading multiple sentences at a time. 

Memories of first love from elementary school… I really don’t have any. Unlike Seoul, the provinces are conservative, and my school didn’t have that kind of atmosphere in which boys and girls talk to each other. If I was with a girl, I would become really shy and wouldn’t even say a word. 

The encounter with hip hop
Started composing in middle school 

I started to be interested in music in 5th year of elementary school, while watching the performance of “Stony Skunk”, Korean artists, on TV. It was the prime of ballad back then so if 18 teams perform on a music program, 10 would sing ballads, 5 would be idols and the other 3 would be other genres. They were one of those 3 teams. It was so cool how they were different from other singers. Up until then, I didn’t have any interest in music, but with Stony Skunk, I started listening to hip hop and reggae music, and was influenced by Epik High as well. MP3 player was starting to come out at that time, but I bought a Panasonic CD player and listened with that. 

Along with listening to music, I also started writing music at the same time. It wasn’t like someone told me to do it, I just had the thought of having to do so. I started writing rap lyrics in elementary school and started composing after I went to middle school. Back then, no one around me liked hiphop… It became extremely popular in Korea now but when I first started listening to it, hip hop was a genre once popular a long time ago. I think there probably wasn’t anyone on the streets who raps, except for me. If I rap at the karaoke room, it would just become some kind of sound to my friends. You know the moving hand gestures that are hip hop’s specialty? I was picked on for that too. 

Despite that, I still kept liking hip hop and in my 2nd year of middle school, I went on the stage for the first time at a festival. I performed Dynamic Duo’s “Go Back” with a friend. I didn’t like standing in front of people, but at that time, I only felt like I have to do it. I showed the rap that I practice too, although it wasn’t anything great. (laughs) 

 Actually in middle school, I wanted to go to an arts high school so I composed classical music. But the tuition was too expensive so I ended up just going to a regular high school. I told my father “I have done enough music now so I’ll study hard in high school” and went to that school, but of course I didn’t. (laughs) 

Full-fledged activities as a rapper after joining a crew in town 

Middle school years was when I composed music to satisfy myself only, on a hobby level. It was after I changed the MIDI software that I started full-fledgedly making music. In 1st year of high school, I showed my song to a person that was like a mentor to me, and he liked it a lot. I was introduced to a hip hop crew called “D-town” and joined. That song had the feeling of new-age music but had hip hop beats similar to Nujabes. For your information, the mentor that acknowledged me studied at Berklee College of Music and is currently working as a movie music director.

I think I started rapping properly after joining the crew. I have been rapping since elementary school, but since there wasn’t anyone who raps around me, I thought I was the best. (laughs) 

After that, I came to the Daegu underground scene, and from then, I also got to know that you can’t make a living out of music in the underground scene. Most of the hyungs who made music with me that time was about 10 years older than me, there were also people over 30. They worked part-time jobs and made music at the same time, but it seemed very hard. Even when performing live, it was already a huge deal to have 100 audiences, and I hated that fact. I thought “If I success, could I be the liaison of the underground scene?”. There are plenty of people who make good music in the underground scene, so I thought when I become famous, I want to create a better environment for them, I want to show their music to the world. 

Just then, I knew Big Hit was holding an audition in Daegu. I came there knowing nothing but that it was a company formed by composer Bang Shihyuk, but I was told that I was accepted the next day. I heard it later that when he saw me, he immediately thought of letting me pass. Even though I wasn’t good at rapping that time. (laughs) 

Coming up to Seoul after becoming a trainee
Different from first thought…!? 

I came to Seoul on November 7th, 2010, when I was in 2nd year of high school. I still remember it now. 

I joined to company not to rap, but to become a composer. So I thought I didn’t need to dance, and let people who are good at rapping rap, I just needed to follow the producer path. But it became a totally different thing. (laughs) At that time, rather than idols, the company was planning to create a group consisting of rappers, but that changed. The members were Rap Monster, J-hope and me. There were also Supreme Boy, i11even-hyung who is now active in the underground scene and Iron-hyung who made it to the finals of Show Me The Money 3. I think if we debut like that, despite being good at rapping, we would fail. (laughs) 

Rapper & producer
The future Suga thinks of as a goal 

My 4-year-older brother plays a very big role in letting me be able to walk on the music path like this. He started liking hip hop under my influence, but when I came to the audition, everyone in my family opposed it except for my brother. They didn’t view music activities nicely, even my relatives told me “What music for you, go study.” So I only showed my songs to him. He was the first person I informed that I passed the audition too. Our relationship is so good that we’re like friends. I basically don’t drink alcohol, but I drink it with him only. 

My family all support me now, of course. Even the relatives that told me to study ask for my signatures. (laughs) 

These days, I have thoughts about wanting to also be active as a producer. I have no greed of being in the center, I just want to make music. I don’t have interest towards the entertainment world too, everyone says they want to act, or to go on variety shows, but I don’t want to do those. (laughs) But still, the first thing is to make BTS get 1st place in Korea as well as Japan. And myself too, I want to be the best rapper, the best producer. I don’t know if it would take time, but I have to try.

A good night’s sleep is what usually prevented you from short temper. When your management told you that you could have a five-month break from touring to write your songs for the next album, you were ecstatic. Especially since this meant you could sleep as long as you want on most days of the week.

So I’m making this post to talk about the good things that BigHit does in this time of lines and screen time feud. BigHit entertainment is one of the best and least restrictive companies I have come to know. Since BTS are their only artists, the amount of freedom and close knit management they get is amazing.

There is no dungeon that the boys can disappear into, and there is constantly new content for the fans. Sure there are some things that happen that we nor the boys like, but then they are dealt with. Yoongi complained about his scalp, and BigHit relented, allowing him to stay dark for the past couple of comebacks.

They also allow the boys to use expensive equipment write and produce their own music to release as non monetized mixtapes or song covers. They even fully funded the MVs given to both Yoongi and Nams for their mixtapes, and that is something they didn’t have to do.

The boys are given the best produced music videos, and are allowed to create cinematic masterpieces with a deepened meaning. They not censored in the types of lyrics that they write, despite how controversial in Korean culture.

Now this may seem trivial to you. All these small things are nothing compared to the injustice that the members face. How dare they give Jungkook all the lines and leave everyone else out in the cold! 2Seok was basically missing this entire comeback!

Ok I hear you, but at the same time, consider the fact that this is the first (and probably the last) time Hoseok gets few *cough cough none cough cough* individual lines in a song. Spring Day was a more vocal based song, so they decided that he should use his vocal talent to back Jungkook rather than add another rap verse. It makes sense to me, and it gives him the opportunity to show his vocal talent on stage if he and Jungkook harmonize live as well.

And then there is Jin. It seems that he always gets the short end of the stick. The amount of individual screen time he got was unfair yes, completely. He is officially a (debatably the) visual of the group, and if anything that should be the place he pops up the most. But at the same time, Not Today was more a dance video, and he and Nams are well, not the best dancers, so they wouldn’t put them in the middle on all the dance shots.

Also look at the I Need U and Run comebacks, the entire story in the music videos clearly revolved around him and his character, something that the fans were quick to point out and appreciate. For those comebacks, he was in the center.

This is still not a justification, but simply a reason for why they might have chosen to edit the video like they did.

Next moving on to his line distribution. He notoriously along with V get the short end of the stick when it comes to lines. And I think it is simply because of the way the industry works.

You know how sometimes Jimin and Jungkook switch lines because Jimin is better at the high notes in the studio, but Jungkook hits them better live? The same thing goes for most line distributions. What voice works the best for the feeling they want to produce? Who can hold the notes the best on stage? Like I said before, Jin is not the best dancer, and their dances are HARD, so most of his time probably goes towards practicing the choreography rather than nailing his vocal stability on stage.

He objectively doesn’t have the best or most stable voice in the group, as often times on live stages he is out of breath by the time his lines do come up, and that is completely understandable. It’s the reason why so many (even the more experienced) artists lip sync to certain performances.

Dancing while singing is hard, and maybe it’s just not for Jin. Maybe, just maybe, he decided himself that his voice was better suited for slower songs with less choreo so that he can really focus on nailing his vocal performance. I mean in the solo he got to produce himself he chose a more soft ballad song rather than a more hard hitting one like Jimin’s because that just suits his voice better, and he knows it.

That’s why he got a lot more lines in “Butterfly” a slower ballad with less complex dancing and softer vocals, right where Jin thrives, but not really the typical image BTS produces musically.

Once again this isn’t a justification, and more a reason why he might get fewer lines. It is true that the line distributions are unfair and I agree with that, but it’s also a question of the industry standards, and the fact that sometimes it might be the best solution to a shitty problem.

I know I’m probably going to get some flack for this one, but it’s just something that needed to be said. Us fans really need to step back and appreciate not only the boys, but the company that helped make them.

Filling the prompt “could you please do a schoolboy van wherein reader is bestfriends with him but reader is starting to fall for van but couldnt do anything bc van is dead inlove with a popular girl??”

Note: I recently did a fic with a school setting, so I’ve tried to add a lil’ something-something to make this a very different story. I hope you like it! It’s about 4300 words. Also, I am so profoundly hungover. Happy Sunday! 


2017

You had tried to wear the least attention-grabbing outfit possible. Blending into the crowd was the goal for the night, and you felt like you were doing a really fucking good job too. You watched Catfish play from your place against a wall. Somehow, despite the low lights and screaming fans, Benji’s eyes clocked you. You stood up straight as you watched him recognise you and almost freeze. He signaled to someone off stage, and Larry quickly ran to him. Larry looked across the room at you with the same disbelief. Maybe if you had hidden in the crowd instead of the shadows they’d not have seen you. You turned and made your way to the exit as fast as you could.

You were almost a block away when you heard Larry’s voice. You knew it, but it was deeper and older than when you last heard it. He was calling your name. He ran to catch up and he stopped in front of you, holding out his hand in a beg. “Y/N. Please. Don’t go. Gimme a sec,” he said. You didn’t know what to do, but you gave him the few seconds to catch his breath. “Fuck. Hi!” he beamed then, and pulled you into a hug. It was familiar and you wanted to cry. You held onto him harder than you wanted to. He started to talk, but didn’t let you go. “What happened? Where did you go? You can’t leave now. If Van finds out you were here. Come on, you have to come back.” He broke the hug and took your hand. You pulled your arm away from him.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering why you think Harry gets a lot of the choruses. I knid of associated it with the fact that the chorus is usually the hook and the part that people recognize and sing along with. If you know a 1D song, you're more likely to know the chorus and it's Harry's voice. Although, I do realize that it isn't always the case and that early on when Louis got no solos he was the backbone of the chorus and really shined then. I realize after writing this that this sounds H v L but it isn't +

+ meant in that spirit. I had a discussion with a nonfandom friend and we were talking about songs in general. She thinks the chorus is the “throw away” bit while I think it’s the opposite. When I have no clue what a song is, but someone sings me the chorus I’m more likely to say yeah, I recognize that song. If this isn’t something you want to discuss at this time given the fandom climate that’s okay!


Hi there!

I can finally answer your question.

So, most pop songs are in the shape:

Verse 1 -> (prechorus) -> chorus, verse 2 -> (prechorus) -> chorus -> bridge -> chorus -> chorus -> conclusion (outro)

Verse 1 and verse 2 usually have different lyrics, and give the “story” of the song–the characters, the plot, the emotions, the beginning/ middle.

The chorus is the refrain. It contains the same lyrics, repeated over and over, and is the “idea” of the song.

Musically (in terms of melody and harmony), the verse is usually blander than the chorus. You’re right, the chorus is the hook, and the most memorable part of the song.

In geek terms, the verse is a squiggle around the tonic chord (the home key, abbreviated as I). The verse noodles around the tonic and usually comes back to I or goes to the dominant chord, V.

The chorus, on the other hand, goes through a full harmonic modulation, usually IV-V-I or some variation of it. To explain it another way, think of the song “Happily,” and how the verse always circles back to the home key. The chorus (I don’t care what people say when we’re together), however, goes through the full modulation– the odyssey from IV to I (with vi and V in between), through major and minor chords, the whole emotional gamut.

Because the lyrics are repeated, and because the harmonies are catchier, hookier, people do tend to remember the chorus more. Think of songs like Midnight Memories, She Loves You, Call Me Maybe, Under My Thumb, Love Me Like You Do.

Also, think of the context of the earliest choruses: the chorus of ancient Greek comedies and tragedies. The chorus represents society. It represents what we believe, what the eternal rules of the gods are. It reiterates the truths about love and loss that are difficult to swallow, but are honest and undeniable. The chorus tells us the universal truth; the verses tell the specific stories.

In One Direction, Harry does tend to sing the majority of choruses. I personally don’t think it’s because his voice is especially suited to choruses (I don’t even know what that means in the context of One Direction, because all five voices can sing kickass choruses, as we have all heard with our own ears).

There are some Harry choruses that are heartbreakingly beautiful, and some that (imho) he shouldn’t have sung. These are off the top of my head.

An example of a heartbreakingly, soul-crushingly beautiful Harry chorus: 18, Night Changes.

Example of the latter, not-hot Harry: End of the Day

There are too many examples of beautiful choruses NOT sung by Harry as well:
Louis: No Control, I Want to Write You a Song, Hey Angel, Magic
Zayn: Fireproof, Through the Dark, Teenage Dirtbag
Liam: C'mon C'mon
Niall: Act My Age

Then there are the many songs where the chorus is in three or four-part harmony: Spaces, Change Your Ticket, Clouds, Once in a Lifetime

I think Harry was given the majority of the choruses because 1DHQ wanted to push the bandleader image on him. He was given a large portion of the solo verses as well, certainly more than any other band member.

It tends to be a self-fulfilling prophecy most of the time.

The one who gets to sing more, develops more confidence, is loved more passionately by fans, gets better at performance, breaks out and becomes the solo star he was destined to be.

The only glitch with this plan in the case of One Direction: the one who was pushed to go solo didn’t want to do this at the expense of his bandmates. He didn’t want to break contract and leave his bandmates behind. He liked his bandmates and the music they were making.

AND, his bandmates were also pretty fucking talented, despite not getting equal billing. They learned about songwriting and performance. They made industry connections and friends. They helped each other. And they EVOLVED. They didn’t stay the same bland boy band. They started to write the music they wanted to perform, the kind of choruses they wanted to sing.

In fact, they are writing and performing music that no one else in pop music is doing right now. Their style is their own; it is different from anything else on the charts. That’s why it’s refreshing to listen to One Direction, and 1D solo music. They sound like themselves and no one else.

This is true of Zayn’s first album as well. Yes, he’s in R&B. But can anyone else sound like Zayn?

The latest trend in EDM is to do away with choruses, or at least to truncate them. In its place are a lot of electronic bass beats and techno noises. Sometimes I’m all for noises, but I really miss a good chorus. It kind of takes the human element out of pop songs, and I feel like it’s a colder world when people don’t sing in songs.

I hope this is an adequate answer to your question.

Much love,

Sea

Hunting with Sam and Dean was your life now. You’d fallen into it after your Aunt Ellen and cousin Jo died. They had introduced you to the brothers a few months before they passed, explaining the secret lifestyle to you as easily as they knew how. Sam caught your eye the minute you met him. You were lucky enough to have started a relationship with him, against Dean’s will. You’d been together for just over three years, living together at the bunker for the most recent one.

You and Sam had finally gotten away from Dean for a few days. He was at the bunker laid up in bed with the flu and you used a “simple salt and burn” case to steal an entire weekend with your boyfriend. The case was easy enough - just like you’d expected. It took you less than a day to handle the ghost. The rest of the weekend was yours to enjoy.

“When was the last time we had time to relax? A vacation.” You smiled at Sam from the passenger seat of his brother’s car.

“Uh, never.” He laughed and his dimples instantly made your heartbeat accelerate, even after all this time.

“Promise me you’ll enjoy yourself.” You placed a hand on his forearm before sliding closer to him.

#121 - For fucking-loco

Filling the prompt “Would you write a fic where Van is alone in a Strokes show and he finds out the reader is on her own as well so he kinda approaches her and they end up having the best night ever?”


The Strokes were hands down your favourite band, so when your friend called an hour before she was meant to be at yours, you knew you’d be spending the night alone. Not going to the concert was not an option. She was sick and sorry, and you were forgiving. To try to make the impact less, you skipped the opening band and arrived late to blend into the crowd. The venue was small and The Strokes had opted to play a string of shows over a week in the small bar rather than one big venue on one big night. It was a cool idea, but it did mean standing around awkwardly in a bar rather than an entertainment centre, arena or theatre. 

When you walked in, the room was buzzing with anticipation. People were excited, and when you saw the line for the bar you decided against drinking. You slinked around the edges of the room, waiting for The Strokes to start. They opened with The Modern Age, and it was perfect. You could feel the music in your soul, in your blood, in the very air you were breathing. The second song, Soma, was cut short when an amp blew. The band apologised, promised to return as soon as physically possible. The lights came on, and people suddenly felt exposed. It was an opportunity, though. You dashed to the bar.

The bartender gave you that quick look that said ‘What will you have?’ You stood on tippy toes, ordered, then watched as the bartender gave the same look to the guy next to you. He ordered the same. You made eye contact with him, and swapped polite smiles. His dimples were beautiful, and you wanted to run your hand along the sleeve of his velvet jacket. But, that would be weird.

Exo Reacting to their S/O having a hard time falling asleep.

》 FAQ // Masterlist 

A/N: Thank you for the request! It was interesting to write, since I have the same problem. And when I finally manage to fall asleep, even the slightest noise wakes me up, so I’m constantly sleep deprived.


Xiumin - Sleepless nights with Minseok would be full of hugs and cuddles because he just wouldn’t want to let you out of his arms – you would get to be treated like royalty.  Firstly, he’d fix you a large mug of delicious hot chocolate with marshmallows. He would then wrap a fluffy blanket around both of you and cuddle with you on the couch while playing your favorite movie on TV. While the movie is still on, you’d find yourself falling asleep quite easily - just being in your boyfriend’s strong embrace is enough.

Luhan - This one is as dead as a doornail when asleep, so better start finding something else to occupy yourself. However, he’d probably wake up in the middle of the night to drink a glass of water and almost have a heart attack upon finding you sitting in the living room, playing one of his favorite video games with Mr. Cat curled up in a ball next to you. He’d sit next to you and ask what’s wrong and when you tell him, he’d take a moment to process your words since he’d be still very sleepy and then calmly take the other controller in his hands.

“Alright, baobei, prepare to lose.

Neither of you would actually end up greeting the morning - you’d be wrapped up tightly in each other’s arms, sound asleep.

Kris - Making Yifan keep you company during sleepless night probably wouldn’t be such a good idea. It would start fine, with him telling you funny stories from behind the scenes of  his movies. But that would somehow lead to him starting to ask really weird questions (“Why does the word ‘monosyllabic’ have five syllables?”, “If poison gets past its expiration date, is it more or less toxic?”). As if that mess wasn’t enough, it would be quickly followed by deep life lessons and no matter how many times you’ve told him you don’t want to listen to those things, he wouldn’t stop telling them.

“You know, baobei, I truly think that, if people were busy improving themselves, they wouldn’t have time to criticize others. Isn’t life so cruel?”

You’d end up forcing yourself into sleep so that you wouldn’t be able to listen to him.

Suho - This sweetheart is very considerate and wouldn’t mind staying up late with you if you couldn’t sleep, despite his exhaustion. When he asks you what you wanted to do instead, you’d bring him a book you had bought once, but never found time to read. In the end, you’d be resting your head onto his chest as he read the book out loud, making you giggle by changing his voice every time so it could suit different characters. By the time he finished the fifth chapter, he’d be so engrossed into the story and would fail to notice you had fallen asleep a long time ago.

Lay - There’s a high possibility that Yixing would be up late as well, a pen settled between his teeth as he moved his fingers smoothly over the piano keys. When you sit beside him on the bench, placing your head on his shoulder, and murmur that you have trouble falling asleep, he’d turn around and ask you if you wanted to help him with his song, to which you’d agree. After many hours of repeating the same tune and lots of new lyrics ideas, with take-out boxes scattered across the room, he’d be ecstatic about having the song done, especially with you helping him. Then he’d realize you had fallen asleep with your head still resting on his shoulder. He would smile and slowly move his head so that he could kiss your forehead without waking you up.

“Sleep well, baobei. And thank you.”

Baekhyun - He’d get up in the middle of the night to drink some water and let out a scream after seeing you curled up in front of your laptop, watching some show, but clearly not fully concentrated on it. He would ask you what you’re doing up in such an inappropriate time and you would explain, asking him afterwards to stay with you for a little bit and help you fall asleep. At first he’d whine and pout like a big baby he is, saying that he’s tired and needs rest, but after lots of persuading and possibly a kick from you, he’d unwillingly agree. Later on, he’d try everything – he’d crack jokes, act, do aegyo, sing every single song he manages to remember, but everything would be in vain, only managing to leave him extremely annoyed.

“What do you mean, it’s not working?! Forget everything! I’ll just lay here and cuddle this pillow.”

Chen - He’d crack a joke in attempt to keep your mind off exhaustion (“You can’t sleep because I refused to give you cuddles, right?”), but when you respond with a simple death glare in his direction, his grin would drop and he’d quickly motion you to come closer to him and lay on his chest. Of course, when it’s Jongdae, cuddles are pointless without singing! He’d learn all of your favorite foreign songs and sing them to you, making you laugh at his pronunciation errors. When you finally start dozing off, he wouldn’t be able to resist mocking you, even if it would bring him a few flicks in the forehead.

“Wow, jagiya, you really can’t seem to fall asleep without being in my embrace!”

Chanyeol - Chanyeol would also be up late composing, so when you approach him and say you can’t sleep, he’d decide to finally take a small break. He is a very romantic person, so expect something really cute, like building a blanket fort! He’d take his guitar and softly strum its strings, creating a beautiful melody to match his voice serenading you a song about eternal love. After he finishes singing, he’d confess that he wrote that song especially for you. To make it even cheesier, he’d move closer to you and place his arm around your shoulders and let you lean onto him while blushing crazily because of how close you would be. You’d both fall asleep right there – who cares about the back pain that would torture you in the morning? It would be worth it.

D.O - ‘Eomma mode’ on! Kyungsoo would always know exactly what to do to make you feel better, this situation being no exception. Without wasting any time and despite how late it would be, he’d put an apron on and cook you the most delicious meal ever. While you eat, he would sit opposite you and start asking you how your day went, what you did, learned, ate and saw; he’d show interest and carefully listen to you talk about everything. After the meal, he’d cuddle with you on the bed and hum gently in your ear. Listening to his sweet voice would be the cherry on top – you’d be out in no time.

Tao - Zitao would be such a sweet boyfriend. Without missing a beat, when you shake him awake at night and say you can’t sleep, he’d get up and start dressing, telling you to do the same. After you both got dressed, he’d take you on a drive around the city until the dawn breaks and then on top of a hill so you could both lie on the windshield and watch the rising sun. Before slowly dozing off, you’d snuggle into his chest and shyly admit you haven’t slept the whole night, but you didn’t want to wake him. He’d start humming some random song softly in your ear, smiling to himself at how cute and caring you were being.

Kai - “Jagiya, you can’t sleep again?” would be the first thing he’d say after showing up in your apartment late at night after a stressful practice and seeing you lying on the bed with Monggu’s head on your lap. Defeated, you’d nod at him. Since it would be his first time dealing with this, he wouldn’t exactly be sure what to do, but he’d surely give his best. You should probably prepare for the Pirates of the Caribbean movie marathon, chicken and cuddles included! It would be a great method of relaxation for both of you - what else could you possibly wish for?

Sehun - At first, he’d be so annoyed with you. Seriously, he needs his beauty sleep, shame on you for not letting almighty Oh Sehun rest well. But after lots of begging, whining and finally agreeing to buy him bubble tea as soon as possible, he would give in, sitting up and asking what you wanted to do. You two would end up playing with Vivi for hours before exhaustion takes the best of you and you’d drift into deep, dreamless sleep. On the other side, poor Sehun wouldn’t be able to function the whole following day, much to his hyungs’ dismay.

“Let’s repeat the choreography one more time! Sehun, can you- is he asleep?!”

EXO (OT12) Reaction to You Saying ‘I Love You’ For the First Time (By Possible Admin)

This possible admin will be called P.A. Li

-Admin Kat

All possible admin work will be completely unedited

Xiumin: It would be at the breakfast table, while you two shared a cup of coffee. You usually did this, almost as a ritual. After he’d finish his coffee, he’s kiss you on the forehead and say ‘I love you’ as he walked out the door for work. You’d never been confident enough to say it, but today was different. When he said it today, you’d reply “I love you too, baby.” He wouldn’t have time to respond, but when he met up with the boys, he’d be gushing.

Luhan: You were taking a stroll to McDonalds, to get some lunch together, despite your conflicting schedules. You being in school, and him working all the time, it’s hard to meet up during the day. Thankfully, your schedules matched up, giving you the same lunch time. So, you planned it out and found the the closest and easiest place to meet was McDonald’s. Not the healthiest, but it works. You looked at him, looking like a bit of a chipmunk with his cheeks full of food. He would catch you staring, and question you. You would reply with, “I’m just thinking about how much I love you.” He would leap over the table, and shower you with kisses. Surprised that he managed to get a girl to love him, and ecstatic that it’s you.

Kris: Kris is never really one to show emotion. His stoic features and deep voice usually give him a sort of harsh look. Which I guess isn’t far off. Stress from his agent, manager, and fans builds up easily. Seeing and hugging you gives him joy, and helps relieve stress, since in his eyes, you give the best hugs. One day, you sense that it had been a tough day at work. You immediately power walk to him and pull him in close. You say softly, “it’s hard, I know, but just remember I love you.” His mood would lighten, and the stupid grin you fell for would show.

Originally posted by exo-wufan

Suho: His kind, caring nature is one of the best. He constantly makes sure you are healthy and happy. He showers you with compliments day in, day out. Knowing that your language of love was skinship and speech, he would constantly tell you how much he loves you and how amazing you are. You, on the other hand, find it hard to say those three words. He always waits though, and when it happened, he would be over the moon. Thanking you over and over, and giggling like a schoolgirl would be the best way to describe it. The big softie would be astounded and proud of the amount of courage you managed to build up.

Lay: He would have just arrived home from rehearsals, to see you passed out on the couch. Shaking his head, he would gently lift you up, and carry you to bed. You had woken up slightly during the transit, and were a little confused as to what had happened, but guessed pretty quickly when you saw Yixing climbing into the opposite side of the bed with you. He’d begin to cuddle you, as you rolled over. While dozing off, you said ‘I love you, goodnight.’ That night, he’d dream of all good things, and wake up in an especially good mood.

Chen: Warming up for rehearsals that he had to leave for soon, he’d be singing ‘What Is Love’ while walking around, picking up what he’d need for said rehearsals. When he reaches the line, he’d belt out “Tell me What Is Love~.” You would be in the kitchen, preparing some food for him and the rest of the group, when you’d yell out “Love is what I feel when I look at you. Now, hurry up and get this food, unless you want your bandmates going hungry.” He’d shut up real quick, realizing and taking in what you said. He’d walk into the kitchen, back hug you, and just stand there, whispering ‘I love you too.’ You two would stay like that, until you scolded him about rehearsals.

Baekhyun: Because he rarely has time to himself because he works so hard, when he gets home, he lets off stress by stupidly dancing and singing around the house. You’d be used to it, after being with him for a while. The songs he tries to perform are almost always in english, and because he isn’t quite able to pronounce some words, you’d giggle to yourself as he tries to say them. One day, you’d walk in on him mocking MYM, and shaking his bottom in the middle of the lounge floor. He’d jump up when he hears you say “sometimes I question myself on why I love you…” almost immediately latching onto you. His only words would be “you have no idea how long I’ve waited for you to say those words.”

Chanyeol: Composing was what Chanyeol does best. He writes with reason, he sings with passion, his lyrics a story to tell. So, it’s not surprising when he asked you to review one of his latest works of art. He placed the what-felt-like oversized headphones on your head, and pressed play. You watched the screen with precision, skimming over each of the tracks. After it ended, you took the headphones off. He gazed at you intently, asking how it was. You’d happily reply, “I love it, almost as much as I love you.” Reaction King mode would kick in, and he would jump around with glee. Once he’s calmed down a bit, he would say “thank you so much, Y/N, I love you too.”

D.O: He would be giving you the cold shoulder because you joked about his cooking, but he took it seriously. You’d tell him over and over that you meant it as a joke, and that you actually thought it was the best food you’d ever tasted. But, despite your best efforts, he still wasn’t budging. This was really getting on your nerves. You were a little sad that he wasn’t listening. Eventually, you said, “come on Kyungsoo, you know I love you and your cooking, can you please drop the act.” He’d turn around, smiling a little at you, only to turn back around and blush like a little school girl.

Tao: His birthday was coming up, and you had bought him the perfect present. A limited edition gold Gucci backpack. You had been paying it off for the last 6 months, leaving you with little money, but it was worth every cent. His birthday rolled around, and he’d plan the most elegant birthday party to celebrate. Black tie event, in some small mansion, or very large house, whichever you’d prefer to call it. He was sitting there opening each of the fan gifts, which included many watches, suits, and handmade items. He then got to yours. Wrapped in a silver wrapping, he slowly opened it. His hand flew to his mouth as he saw the bag of his dreams. He looked up as you. “Why did you spend so much money on this?” he’d ask, knowing how much it was. “Because I love you, idiot.” You’d reply. He’d hug you tightly, thanking you and returning the love.

Kai: We all know how much he likes chicken (and the boy should eat some), so he would be overwhelmed when practicing, he’d see you walk in with a big bucket of his favourite food. He would take a break and sit on the couch in the studio, inviting you to sit next to him. While filling his stomach, he would ask why you would do such a thing for him. Hearing “because I love you,” fall from your lips would set him into a fit of giggles, his heart full of joy. He’d latch onto you like a koala, still not believing what he said to you. This boy would return the words, between the giggles, of course.

Originally posted by jonginssoo

Sehun: Ironically, you two would be fighting about his health, and well, SM. He would question why you cared so much about his health. You would yell back, “because I love you too damn much to just watch on.” He would slowly turn back, to see you turn away in tears. Embarrassed and ashamed of his previous actions and words, he would slowly walk over and wrap his arms around your shoulders. ‘I’m so sorry’ and ‘I love you too’ would resonate over and over, with him slowly realising how much you care for him.

La vie en rose {Woozi Fanfic}

Word Count: 1649

Genre: Fluff, oneshot

Summary: Just what are you going to do with that hopelessly love struck childhood friend?


You looked across the table at your childhood friend and heaved a sigh. He had that glazed over look that he often got when he was stressed, thinking too much, or in love. It was winter break so stress wasn’t the thing; you had asked him if he had much on his mind lately and he just said that his life was so dull that it was making him think too much so you knew that certainly wasn’t the case and that left only one explanation—Lee Jihoon was in love.

It often got like this when he found a new love. It wasn’t like he fell in and out of love every other day—in fact it took a while for him to find someone that suits his taste. However when he does feel an attraction towards someone, he never acts on his feelings. He would simply sit there and stare at the girl or just stare off into space, thinking about situations and even talking about them when he is too flooded with the feelings of hopeless love. You were the one who got the other end of the talk usually and when you weren’t sufficient enough or didn’t give the response he was hoping, he would bust out pen and paper and begin to scribble down lyrics. His songs were well received on the web but the process he had to go through to get there was torture for both you and him.

But here you were again. Back on square one.

anonymous asked:

why do you like namjoon so much?

Why I like Kim Namjoon? Wow, is there an end of reasons to like Namjoon even? 

So I could go on for about a decade about everything I love about Kim Namjoon appearance wise, from his dimples to how tall he is or how much his pink hair suits him because honestly, there’s so so much more to Kim Namjoon, I can’t even begin.

  • As far as three years ago, he openly said that he supports the LGBTQ community. Even now, when Korea still considers being openly gay illegal, he wrote and composed ‘I Know’ which acknowledged males and females equally.
  • The way he sings. The fact that he’s a rapper and the rest of the band lightly teases him for his singing voice (in 2 Bangtan bombs) but he still does his absolute best to sing well, which anyone has to understand must have been fricking hard.
  • He isn’t afraid to try new things, especially if fashion. Even if people think it’s weird, Namjoon always goes out of his way to try new things with his clothes and appearance. There are times people say it’s feminine to wear chokers or wear pink, but he never lets that stop him from doing those things anyway. And #KimDaily.
  • He writes his own music. There are so many performers and bands in the industry that are just given music and lyrics ready made and all they do is perform them. Many of those performers don’t have what it takes to write their own music, or their own lyrics. Namjoon has written hundreds of songs on his own and he writes lyrics with other BTS members for their music too. That’s a talent only artists have, not just performers. 
  • His mixtape. There’s nothing to do. It just goes to display how talented he is, how with or without his members, he still shines so bright and how much he works on his rap and developing his music and style. That mixtape told things he really wanted to say, how to not conform to society’s expectations, on self belief and hard work. 
  • He’s smart and he reads. It sounds easy but not a lot of people do that, especially people with tight schedules and work to do all day. Finding time and knowing the importance of fitting in time to read even when members and schedules have tired him out is so amazing because he genuinely enjoys it and wants to improve on what he already knows and that’s fantastic. He said he actually read philosophy books for their HwaYaYeongHwa Era. This man literally taught himself English.
  • His rap talent. It’s pretty undeniable what a fantastic rapper Namjoon is. He started as an underground rapper, he worked with some of the best people in the rap industry and he’s had rap battles (rap duo) and rapped in groups with Supreme Boi (part of DaeNamHyuk) and Zico before they were even in bands. Kim Namjoon is a rap god. He isn’t in BTS for dance, visual or anything else as a side. He’s there because he’s hugely gifted as a rapper.
  • DanceMonster. I’m not saying that as a joke. Even Hoseok, Bangtan lead dancer, admits that the person whose improved their dance the most is Namjoon. And knowing how bad Namjoon usually is with dance, that’s a big deal. Do you know how fucking hard it is to dance hours on end, especially when you have to put extra effort because you’re not good at it? Namjoon even said in his English vlog that he wanted to quit BTS because of it but stayed on.
  • Representation. And that’s not just about LGBTQ. I’m talking representation of always thanking international fans, even on award shows, while still always being grateful to Korean fans because he wants everyone to know they’ve contributed to whatever BTS’ successes are. He speaks English so he can reach out to a larger crowd.
  • He is real with emotions. There’s no end to the tweets (and that’s just the part we, as fans, are exposed to) where you can tell he thinks too deeply about things, blames himself about the smallest things, cares way too much about everyone and everything and he values everyone so much. Even when he’s feeling down or frustrated, he always thanks ARMY and always knows he’ll get strong again and that is so, so important.  He has very complex emotions and thoughts, and is often overwhelmed by the depth of them.
  • He’s such a good leader. He takes care of his member and cheers them on whenever they’re doing things and when Bang PD asked him if he picked a solo career over BTS he didn’t even hesitate before replying BTS.
  • He admits it freely if he isn’t good with something. He casually claims that he’s not of of the good looking members of BTS (lies), cooking, sports or that time he told Jackson from GOT7 that he isn’t any good at freestyle rapping.
  • He’s such a hard worker. The time he injured his hand and still signed for fans with that hurt hand, or stays up late to perfect dance or songs. He works hard on everything and that is so important. Even though his old rap friends and BTS member contestants left him one by one, and even though he didn’t know about his future or where he stood or what he was getting into, he pushed on and did what he loved and as a leader, helped get BTS to the international level they are today. He’s so humble too, like when a fan got a photocard of his, he felt the need to apologize like it was a bad thing and it broke my heart because he knows he’s not a popular member and that killed me, despite the fact that he works just as hard as everyone else.
  • His lyrics. Have you seen the lyrics of Awakening? Or PDD? How about Do You? Or any other song he’s written. He’s a fucking genius.
  • The person he is. He makes lots of mistakes but he always admits and apologizes for them, he is so open with how much he loves his parents and he’s always doing his best to be positive and to work hard. 
  • DorkMon. He’s a cheesy, weird as fuck, awkward, destruction god who really needs help oh my gosh
  • Because he’s Namjoon, he’s himself and he’s wonderful. Nothing will ever change that.
Love Call

one two three four five six seven eight nine ten

     

       "Mom, that’s too much!“ You whined, feeling so annoyed. It was a peaceful dinner time until your mom brought your love life topic as dinner talk.

       "I like him, and he’s nice. Just try to go on date with him, you’re not going to lose anything.” Demanding, forcing and unarguably, that’s the perfect words to describe how your mom is.

       "I will date when I feel I want to date, not because you want me to.“ You argued back, but still chewed your meals. You were hungry and the food was too delicious to be left just because you want to avoid a war with your mom.

      "Then how long I have to wait, y/n? These past three years no-one you brought home to meet me, I’m worried!” She was right, you were struggling to move on from your ex-boyfriend for almost three years. After took a long time to heal the pain and make peace with your past, you were no longer longing his presence or stalking his social media, you were done with everything about him. But you still found that dating someone isn’t the right time for you right now, it’s because you’re scared to get hurt again. You’ll find someone and date but not now.

       Your mom took your love life as her priority concern, it’s because she loves and cares with you, but her concern was out for you to handle. She started to make you go on some blind dates, dragged you around to meet her friends who has son and potential to be your boyfriend. And it’s her six times attempts, she’s stubborn just like you.

       "Mom, I’m barely reaching my 25. My life just begin, seriously..“ you shook your head disbelief and turned to your dad, "Dad, say something.. I’m too young to get married, right?” You needed your dad as your back up, he’s so chill and laid back, you trust him that he wouldn’t take your mom’s side. He’s your last savior, your black horse.

       "My little girl should get married, I’m bored watching you hang out with your girl friends.. you should dating someone, baby..“ He said with his calm and nice tone, savoring the delicious dinner that your mom made.

       Even your dad betrayed you.

Notes: I TOOK TWO MONTHS TO WRITE THIS. I’m so so sorry for the long wait, dear nonnie. I’ve been lazing around with my writing and my college shit is just making it worse. Adding my sudden inability to even start writing something, it took WAY longer than I thought. It’s not that good but I hope you enjoy it anyway! Y’all tell me if there’s any mistakes since I didn’t proofread. Enjoy! <3


When you first see him, it’s a during a busy Saturday night and he’s with his friend, the sergeant, who you’re  already used to meet every now and then during his recent visits. 

The brunette is popular with the ladies, you can tell, and it’s rare the nights he comes alone rather than being with an usual short girl, their lips always in deep tons of red and hairs dolled up with perfectly made curls. 

But you really never saw him before. 

He’s got blond hair, blue eyes and a tiny frame. His hair looks good enough for your fingers to twitch in an urge to touch it, his eyes are light and soft so that you can notice them from across the room and you’re sure he’s a few inches smaller than your height – not that you particularly care about that.

anonymous asked:

Are you taking River and Twelve prompts? Because what if they made a child during those 24 years?

Because I got a lot of requests for time babies …

The water’s dark and deep inside this ancient heart

It was a truth universally acknowledged that River Song would never be a mother.

Really, it wasn’t even much of a passing thought. Motherhood was for people like Amy, who mainly wanted it because she was with Rory. There was very little innate nurturing in River’s system, despite being the daughter of Rory Williams. Her peers spent their childhoods playing with Barbies and dolls that “wet” their diapers when spoonfed water. River spent her childhood either being brainwashed by the Silence, wandering starving through the streets of New York, or ensuring that her parents didn’t get killed by aliens before they had the chance to create her to begin with.

Not the seeds for successful motherhood there.

( missed the beginning? catch up on AO3! )

When Jack texted, he didn’t mention the kiss.

Bitty went back to Georgia for the summer. He wasn’t sure how to talk to Kent about Jack’s farewell; after all, Jack hadn’t really said anything. Bitty was pretty sure he knew what it meant, but how could he possibly tell Kent that he just had a feeling that Jack was maybe sort of in love with both of them? He didn’t really have anything to base it on other than a kiss in the hospital that Kent likely didn’t even remember.
