I missed wednesday cuz I was at work until 1am and then yesterday i was tired and needed a bath BUT IT’S TIME FOR SOME HOKEY GREASER NONSENSE BITCHES
oh thanks god Juggie’s narration is back. i didn’t realize it at the time but the more i thought about it last episode the more anxious it made me
holy shit did toni sleep over?! i mean- WITH him??? i should wait to get all the answers before i clutch my pearls shouldn’t i
awwww man- she switched her ringtone
walking by a graveyard in the fog during this conversation because this show is a GIFT
penelope is a fucking monster but she’s being a very stupid monster right now does she not remember “QUIETLY and with my BLESSING”
also nice to see third degree burns heal in like a week and leave zero scarring that’s chill i guess
cheryl’s “EVERYTHING’S FINE” and smile is the exact thing i’ve been doing at work lately so you know she plannin shit ((disclaimer: i’m just looking for a new job because i hate mine nothing this dramatic i promise i’m not going to beat someone up with a girlband or send a serial killer after them))
of course toni just couch crashed i mean i knew it but also i was pearl clutching a bit cuz the kiss was one thing but we all know jug and betty haven’t boned down yet and so i’d be wagging my finger at him if he rebounded THAT hard before cooling off and getting all the facts
okay so they fooled around a bit but toni is bein hella mature about this good girl
“more into girls anyways” WOOP THERE SHE IS
“people at the farm are going to help polly disappear for awhile” UM UM UM I DON’T LIKE THIS. I DON’T LIKE THIS AT ALL. I WANT TO GET OFF NOW PLEASE
of course they see jughead and toni talking at pops but SURPRISE the literal lines they are seeing but not hearing are “so girls in fuzzy sweaters and lipgloss right?” “RIGHT. yes. agreed. what about pastel converse? cutest thing in the world right?” “totally. right up there with cheerleader outfits.” “damn i love girls.” “same.”
omg the three different conversations happening at this neighborhood watch meeting i love this
“bughead is no more?” kevin once again the audience’s solid gold pov character but what about joaqvin i really want someone to say that just so i can see kevin’s eyes lift exasperatedly to the heavens
there’s a whole STORY that people KNOW about the mugshot everyone shut up hiram bout to DRAG
“some gangmember on the southside…” goddammit reggie why are you like this
**side note: i’ve been worried about my professional prospects recently but this week i had a dream that reggie (unclear in the dream if it was the character or the actor?) was rubbing my shoulders and assuring me that i would find a great job soon and everything would fall into place, so i’ve been rather fond of him lately, even if he is a trashbag hot mess
“what does it matter not all serpents are drug dealers” archie bringing his classic “too little too late” damage control in god love’m but he’s so ineffective at least you’re pretty hun
JOOOSSSSSIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE god her big beautiful eyes have so many FEELINGS and EMOTIONS i can’t even look at her
told you this “jughead writes for the school paper” plot was going to last all of two seconds
oh lord mayormackers, papa keller. why you two this way.
*delicate cough* nice how they make sure a black cop arrests toni so we know this isn’t at all racially motivated profiling *sips tea skeptically*
okay i kinda thought veronica was reading that something was up with betty’s outburst but maybe i was wrong. or she’s just got too much going on right now so she’s taking it at face value at the moment and sussing things out later
“The Sugarman” is both cringy-hilarious and TERRIFYING as a drug supplier name
archie has got to give jughead some more hints than “you should maybe talk to betty” because yes it’s not his place to explain everything but also we are BARRELING towards a shakespearean misunderstanding at about 800million miles per hour
cheryl serving LOOKS once again i love this. love her hat. her glasses. the fact that she’s clearly supposed to be sunbathing but she’s in FULL SHADE. LOVE this. LOVE her.
i can’t see the title of her book i’m just assuming it’s wuthering heights or flowers in the attic- only options
they make sure there’s a guitar in the andrews’ living room to remind us that archie does music sometimes still
“i’m upset with you for doing drugs but i know that was probably an isolated incident for you. what about jughead are you checking in with him to make sure he’s not making a habit of that kind of thing? how are your friends son i’m asking for their sake because i care about them as not to assess what kind of influence they are on you” fred is just so incredibly DECENT it’s overwhelming
their having a PARLAY with a RIVAL GANG and jughead being the king’s son CARRIES WEIGHT i am OVERWHELMED MY FRIENDS
So Tall Boy is the king regent now, with the true king in jail and the crown prince too green to take real responsibilities. i don’t ahve any speculations or comments i’m just translating gang culture into a language i have more experience with carry on-wait no i do have thoughts- so joaquin was like- the king’s own squire right? is that a coveted position or sort of an accidental “you have nowhere else to go and your young an impressionable and unlikely to stand up to me here help me shove this body of a kid your age into a freezer” kinda thing i have QUESTIONS about how the serpents operate and the slices of relationships we have seen so far
okay i am getting a STRONG byron vibe from this ghouly fellow
there is just- SO MUCH happening in this scene. first off- tall boy uses words like “parlay” and wears two earrings and now he’s lit with soft orange candlelight he is a literal pirate right now i’m having so much fun
then mr. nell’s-hair-texture-but-somehow-better-also-wearing-an-open-kimono-because-i-am-lord-george-byron and his…. whole deal. is he wearing GAUNTLETS with his OPEN KIMONO and SKINNY JEANS?! GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW
ALSO. tall boy just stood up to say some bogus “this is war” nonsense and there’s a ram’s skull hovering just over his shoulder in the shot HAHAHAHA SUBTLETY.
i was just going to say we haven’t seen cheryl PROSTRATING HERSELF IN GRIEF over jason in awhile but here she is looking at old photos surrounded by red carpeting and iron candelabras bless
oh man. i dunno but the more time passes the more solid the “sheriff keller is crooked” theory is. just they way they cut from cheryl looking at the drawing of the sugarman to the sheriff at the diner i just oh dear. oh honey. i want to believe you’re just spineless and ineffective. for kevin’s sake. don’t hurt kevin any more by having his dad be either a drug smuggler or a serial killer. OH GOD HE JUST SAID “ONE QUESTION” I AM UPSET. could be a red herring almost seems too easy but STILL.
“there isn’t a sane excuse. so tell me the insane one” knew veronica was too smart for this deception she reads people well and knows betty atta girl way to be the anti- version of a character put in this trope
“Girl i would have given nick’s name and then happily treated myself to a facial” veronica poppin in as the audience’s mouthpiece while kevin is off duty
yasssssss beronica is BACK my friends i missed this are they going to break into someone’s car and definitely make out after the scene cuts like last time please say yes
yes 911 send help it’s the year of our lord 2017 and part of me is still a lil bit into skeet ulrich and i can’t tell how much of it is 90s nostalgia and how much is fp’s hot but deadbeat dad vibe
also fp’s prison number is 24601 because these lit references CAN’T BE STOPPED SON
also i’m sorry i’m going to say SO MUCH ABOUT THIS SCENE because this is my JAM you guys. the tired king helpless to stop the uprising of his people who he once thought loyal but now is seeing just how quickly he can be forgotten GOD there is so much henriad in here i can’t handle it season one was act I without the politics and solely focused on the familial tension with the warrior king favoring the company of the rough upstart over his own intellectual son ((obviously very different characters, but from jughead’s pov, it had to have hurt that fp basically abandoned his real family for the serpents and had little sidebars with joaquin every other second), but now this season is fully into the politics the rebels are merging with the scots and it’s all hal i mean jughead can do to offer himself, the combat-green prodigal son, as a prize fighter compromise GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW
also he called the ghoulies “fops” that byron vibe is def deliberate
he has to say “crazy retro” to excuse the fact that the rest of this episode is (presumably) just going to get stylized as hell for zero in-world reason and 100% because these creators know we all love greaser aus and a show that brings our time period aus to life will have our hearts pretty much forever
speaking of i only went looking for fic for this show once and it was to check to see if there was a kevin/joaquin grease au and i want you all to know i’m disappointed in all of you
cheryl’s outfits are KILLING this episode dead
“i never told you those stories” oh my god. oh my god. i’ve said it so many times before but when this show does subtlety right it REALLY does it. because there is barely direct discussion of cheryl and jason being abused as kids but holy shit do we all know clifford and penelope were abusive as fuck or what
reggie is constantly ducklipping i honestly can’t even tell if his mouth is naturally like that or if the actor is HILARIOUS oh reggie. oh darling. rub my shoulders again that was a nice dream.
these two are over the top but in a delightful way they’ve solved the “flirty asshole persists after disinterested hottie” trope by making all reggie’s flirtations about HIS OWN BODY rather than josie’s which eliminates what makes that trope so skeezy and now instead we’re all just having fun right we’re into this i’m into this they pretend it’s all drunk hookups and eye rolling in public but behind closed doors they have a lot of cute giggly fooling around and even some sweet snuggles
god even this rando drug dealer is beautiful why is everyone so pretty
Oh god core four not in a good place in byron’s sexpot cave right now
yes juggie offering up people’s (including your own) LITERAL HOME is a great plan i mean i say including your own because we’re clearly supposed to see this as self sacrificing because the trailer is all jughead has but HE’S NOT THE ONLY FUCKER IN THE TRAILER PARK IS HE JESUS CHRIST
“Sharon” hahahahahaha i hope the black hood swaps his testes and eyeballs
also i think his face has healed too? what is in the WATER in riverdale?????
also too lets get real again a sec i’m really glad we’ve finally dropped the rape bomb because it’s a word that’s been absent from the dialogue so far and it needed to be said
I hope pop pissed on his fries
YASS GREASE MONKEY BETTY WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR IT AND WE FINALLY MADE IT WE DID IT GUYS
overalls. i’m kinda mad that no one was on board when i tried to make them cool in highschool and now apparently according to riverdale costumers they are A Thing
yass cheryl claws out i dont actually have anything worthwhile to say i just love my trash gothic eris daughter
this is possibly my fave veronica outfit holy shit it is so….. me.
also typical fucking parent reaction to sexual assault: “these things happen…. unless it’s to my own daughter then it’s inexcusable”
hermione and hiram be like “babe i’mma interrupt you real quick before you admit you’re a psychopath to our daughter” “thanks babe”
kevin fully acknowledges the hotness of byron which reminds me that the creators are clearly trying to get us all to forget about joaquin by throwing all these ethnically ambiguous pretty boys who dress like they’re in a band at us and it’s not working i tell you it’s NOT but i’m a little offended by how easily they keep pegging My Type like goddammit why am i so fucking predictable
byron’s hair every day is like my hair on like my best hair day of the year god i hate him
again i’m not much for cole sprouse face-wise but the all black is a DAMN good look on him everyone should just be in all black ft. leather jacket all the time it ups your hotness by at least three points
god i love how there is zero explanation for everyone’s adorably retro outfits to fit with the cars GOD i love this show
omg cheryl clearly channeling miss lana with another KILLER outfit god the girls are just KNOCKING IT OUT OF THE PARK in the wardrobe department this ep actually no you know what? the whole production design crew was having the time of their fucking lives all episode and i want to take a moment to thank each and every person on that crew for the tremendous job on such a fun episode theme
if cheryl and toni don’t bone down i’mma be cross
is byron’s second zayn malick? ((that’s the one i’m thinking of right? i don’t go there))
cheryl renders all sexualities meaningless with dem shorts
oh god jughead barely containing his glee while archie shrinks in terror in the passenger’s seat is such a Big Mood
that was… such an archie solution. poor boy. good boy. dumb boy.
hmm betty seems like she doesn’t recognize the name she doesn’t sound shocked or scared i was sort of suspecting someone we know
this is the BEST way dark!betty could possibly go holy shit man i was not about that plot line in season one but now i’m HERE for the good girl owning her darkness with agency not in a sexy goodgirl gone bad for our viewing pleasure kinda way but in a genuine way in which she has full ownership and control over herself fuck me this is some GOOD SHIT PREMIUM STUFF
OH DANG did not suspect that one. makes sense tho right.
oh no…. fred…. we know where this leads… nooo….
LODGES GOD. LODGES. FRICK.
dammit black hood.
Episode scorecard (i keep forgetting to do this):
# of sick beat drop rhythmic editing moments: One that i counted- the drop/reveal of the sugarman’s identity
do I still miss joaquin: yes
episode hair mvp: Cheryl all around, but particularly her lana del ray headband and swoop
episode outfit mvp: four way tie between cheryl’s sunbathing outfit, cheryl’s black dress with the embroidery and choker, cheryl’s lana del rey outfit all together, and veronica’s plaid pencil skirt/lace up back top number that is like a better version of one of my most iconic outfits and i’m real jealous. honorable mentions to toni, betty and jughead at the race, as well as bryon’s ghouly den kimono ensamble, betty’s overalls, hermione’s “oh no so tragic to hear about this car accident” outfit, penelope’s extra af lace collars, cheryl’s patterned pants and many more this was a good episode for clothes.
cast and crew mvp: production design was having the time of their fucking lives in this one and it paid the fuck off. the costumes as mentioned above, but also environments like thistle house interior and the ghouly hangout really stood out with their detailing and strong genre motifs. standing ovation team. beautiful work.
“This gift that you gave me for my birthday. You never got to tell me why you gave it to me or what it means… but I think I know. I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women and… extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals. That what can be imagined can be achieved… that you must dare to dream… but that there’s no substitute for perseverance and hard work… and teamwork… because no one gets there alone. And that, while we commemorate the greatness of these events and the individuals who achieve them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who make these achievements and leaps possible.”
Congratulations to Viola Davis on her Oscar win for ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role’ as Rose Maxson in the film ‘Fences’ (2016) directed by Denzel Washington at the 89th Annual Academy Awards.
Thank you to the Academy. You know, there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist—and thank God I did—because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So, here’s to August Wilson, who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people.
me and my cousin running just another dime-a-dozen mom-and-pop stop-and-shop, and oh my god, it’s gotten too darn hot like my man Cole Porter said, people come through for a few cold waters and a lottery ticket, just a part of the routine. Everybody’s got a job, everybody’s got a dream. They gossip as I sip my coffee and smirk, the first stop as people hop to work.
Just joined my first in-person DnD group. The group is a miss-quoting Human Cleric, a lost Half-Orc Druid, a disowned Dragonborn Rogue, a social inept Half-Elf Wizard and a “I’m not small” Halfling Bard (me). We’re doing our first session, and here are some of my favourite lines from the night
During the Getting-To-Know-Each-Other-Stage Rogue: Well, as you can see, I am a Silver Dragonborn and I’m sure you all know exactly what that means- Bard: You came in second place in the race-pool? Gold’s the best, right? Rogue: I-What? NO! It means I can blow an icey flame-like substance from my mouth that is very cold Bard: So…it’s ice and not flame-like at all? Rogue:…You’re smaller than the lunches back home
Bartender: While all your boys argue, if there’s anything you need, you let me know little missy *winks at the Wizard* Wizard: Uh… Wizard: Guys, I think he’s flirting with you. I don’t know which though. I’m not sure they swing that way Mr. Bartender. Druid: Err…*slides a gold piece to the Bartender* C'mon Wizard, we’ve got work to do, thank you Barkeep
Druid: As a Druid, Nature talks to me Cleric: Fascinating, my God talks to me too my brother Bard: Wait, you two are brothers? Druid and Cleric in unison: What, no Bard:…I hope for your parents sake, it’s the same father, I think that’d be easier on the other parent Druid: NOT brothers!
Cleric: As Bill Gates once said; I have a dream, that one day, Silver Dragonborns and Gold Dragonborns Rogue: I’m going to stop you right there
Druid: Oh, a Church. Ya, Churches aren’t really my thing Cleric: Come, brother, it will be fine. One trip wont hurt you Bard: I thought you two weren’t brothers Cleric: We are not blood brothers, but we are all brothers and sisters under our Creators eyes Druid: Not even that kind of brothers Bard: I’m really confused and I’m still hoping you share a father and not a mother
“Yes!” She barked back, unable to contain her anger.
Whether it was anger or disappointment, though, he wondered.
“The reason I told you I didn’t want to be friends was because I was afraid. I was afraid of how close we were getting, yet how far away we stayed. I was terrified of the thought of you, the thought that a month from now I could be very much in love with you. You terrify me!”
But the answer just didn’t seem enough. She didn’t understand.
“Which are you more scared of, loving me or losing me?”
She wanted eye contact; she wanted the answer she needed to hear.
“Both.” He whispered, keeping his eyes shut tight.
-the more I love you, the harder it will be to lose you | a.m
So I have been reading a lot of Yoongi/Jimin because they are giving me all the feelings, here are some of my favourite ones. I will keep updating this. It is short because I just started not too long ago. :)
Note that this is for fun only and I do not actually believe that the real Yoongi and Jimin will be romantically linked in any way.
“It’s a fusion game. The person who spins the bottle gets to ask the person it landed on truth or dare, and if that person doesn’t want to answer or do the dare then they either take a shot or take off an article of clothing,” Jin says like he’s proud of improvising such a fantastic game.
“I’m not playing that,” Yoongi says.
“Hyung, don’t be a party pooper, are you scared we’ll learn your secrets?” Hoseok asks and Namjoon ah’s dramatically.
Yoongi shakes his head and puts his tongue in his cheek before he smiles at their antics, pushing Namjoon over closer to Jin so that he can sit down.
“Please, hyung, it sounds like fun!” Jungkook says. “It’s my birthday.”
Me: Indulgent!Yoongi and shy!Jimin is my favourite thing.
“So, I know that you’re homeless and that you don’t need my pity, it’s just that I noticed you always write on the edges of your notebook because you probably can’t buy a new one, so I bought you six new notebooks and… wait, are you crying?” AU
Me: This made me sad but made me smile at the same time. As always, all fics all this list end well so get ready for some light angst that ends with fluff.
“As you took the sun away from my life I will do the same. You’ll never feel the sun on your skin again, you will never see the light of day. Only when someone will feel for you love in the purest form, in the brightest way, only then the sun will come back again. But too bad, such love does not exist and it will never find it’s way.”
Min Yoongi is cursed and hasn’t seen the sun in three years. Enter Park Jimin, literal ray of sunshine, and suddenly the sun isn’t so important anymore.
Me: As someone who has days that feel like they never see the sunlight. I think I am also looking for a Jimin who is the embodiment of sunshine.
Jimin pauses with his marker inches away from the cup, because — is he really going to do this? Isn’t it a bit old-fashioned to write something flirty on a coffee cup? But no matter what his churning gut says about danger and what the hell are you doing do you want to die, this guy is — with no better way to put it — totally Jimin’s Type with a capital T.
(Or: Jimin accidentally starts a nickname war with the cute blonde who likes his coffee way too bitter.)
Me: This is just so much cute blushing Jimin and tough but secretly soft Yoongi. I love love love this so much.
“In his daze Jimin barely realizes the seriousness of the situation, but he’s sure of one thing: he’d trust Yoongi with his life. And right now, with his aching body and burning skin, he couldn’t trust anyone else but the alpha to take care of him.”
In which Jimin is going through his first heat and, again, he doesn’t really know what to do.
Me: this is the continuation to the First Love fic further down this list. I am a sucker for protective!Yoongi and needyOmega!Jimin so let’s just leave it at there. I also might have a bit of a Hyung kink but let’s not talk about this anymore.
Movie night with the band usually means a lazy evening watching some dull western flick while eating unhealthy amounts of popcorn, but every now and then, when it’s Jeongguk’s turn to pick, it means gory horror movies that has Jimin burying his face in the crook of his boyfriend’s neck to not scream in terror at every single jumpscare.
And Yoongi? Well, Yoongi finds a new way to distract him.
Me: This is *blush* the filthiest one-shot I have on this list and it hits all the right spots. Featuring the shy Jiminnie and his indulgent Yoongi.
Jimin has never taken his best friend’s jokes about his alleged praise kink seriously, because that’s all they are and ever will be. Jokes. They’re stupid jokes that Taehyung makes at his expense to see the shy Jimin turn into a blushing, embarrassed mess of stuttering protests and meek curses. They’re only jokes, and they’re so stupid.
Or at least Jimin has always thought so, but then his hairdresser boyfriend asks him to pose as a model for his winter collection, and Jimin realizes that there might the teeniest, tiniest bit of truth to Taehyung’s persistent teasing.
Me: I am quite the sucker also for a Jimin with a praise kink. Let’s just leave it as that. This is a sorta sequel to the fic above. MissterMaia is a genius, I would recommend reading everything they have written.
Min Yoongi is the school’s resident Bad Boy™. He’s covered in tattoos, is pierced, curses like a sailor, smokes like crazy, doesn’t give a shit about anything, possesses a hot temper that has people steering clear of him, and is desperately in love with Park Jimin, the adorable math nerd. When Jimin is tasked with tutoring Yoongi in math, who is in danger of failing the class and being held back a year, both boys are hesitant. Yoongi because he can’t think straight around the boy with startling red hair, and Jimin because Yoongi is scary as hell and looks like he can easily kill someone. Gradually, though, the two grow closer, and Jimin finds that Yoongi is nothing like how he’d imagined.
Me: BadBoy!Yoongi being a softie for our good student Jimin. Hits all the right spots.
Park Jimin, a meek, quiet assistant at Bangtan News Station, catches the wrath of his long- time crush, the 7’o clock news anchor, Min Yoongi, when Jimin accidentally switches scripts one night and almost causes an incident on live, national television. Yoongi is furious and makes Jimin cry in a room full of their coworkers, calling him names and telling him how stupid he is. Afterwards, Jimin takes to avoiding Yoongi like the plague, and Yoongi, who at first couldn’t stand Jimin, can’t help but start noticing him everywhere. Soon he finds himself falling for Jimin, which scares him, because Yoongi has never felt this way about a man before. Will it be too late to salvage a relationship with Jimin, or did Yoongi ruin his chance for good?
Me: Some light angst here and there but of course, like all the other fics in this list, there is a happy endings.
Yoongi is Captain of the pirate ship, the Devil’s Mistress, and he and his crew are racing against time to find a famous buried treasure, always one step behind and losing it to another rival ship. To gain the upper hand, Yoongi kidnaps a silver-haired beauty who is rumored to be a creature of great power. He isn’t expecting to fall in love on the way.
Me: I love the bed-sharing trope in fics. So this is perfect.
Yoongi’s never really understood why it’s a stereotypical thing for alphas to have some obsession with omega’s necks. He’d always thought that was kind of weird and just some macho ‘make your mate submit by biting their throat’ thing until he’s alone in the kitchen with Park Jimin and his damn shirt falls down his damn shoulder.
Even when he was a pup, Park Jimin never even dreamed that he would find his soulmate. Thoughts like that were better left to his hopelessly romantic best friend and partner in crime, Kim Taehyung. It’s a one in a million chance, but a twist of fate brings a strange wolf into Jimin’s life and it changes things forever.
Me: Alpha!Yoongi learns to love with our little Omega!Jimin. With a healthy amount of angst to add to the fluff at the end.
Updated: 3rd June 2017
I have returned with some new fics I found over the last few weeks. Enjoy! :D
Yoongi likes one night stands and he understands how they work. What he doesn’t understand, however, is how he ended up in bed with a probably-not-legal kid crying in his arms about his broken heart, because he’s pretty sure (and correct him if he’s wrong) that a babysitting job was not what he was looking for when he went to the opening of his friend’s new club.
Me: How do I say this, there are fics that start with one night stands and none of them went on as beautifully as this one. It is a natural progression, almost like a real relationship, I am like the way Yoongi is portrayed here. Conflicted but ultimately a softie at heart.
She hadn’t been ready to be a mother and Yoongi hadn’t been ready to be a father, but where she had turned tail and run, Yoongi had vowed never to do the same.
Me: I wasn’t expecting this single father Yoongi story to pull me in as much as it did. There is sufficient twists in this to keep it interesting and also a climax at the end which is nice. A soft, mostly fluffy story of how a Yoongi believes in love again.
Jimin isn’t sure what possessed him to lie to his mother and tell her that he had a boyfriend, but now that he’s opened the position, he has no choice but to fill it. Yoongi is, apparently, his only option.
Me: I just love love love love the whole fake boyfriend idea no matter which fandom I am into at the moment. I really enjoyed this one there is some angst but also so must fluff.
“Absolutely not,” Yoongi deadpanned. “Namjoon-ah. I value you as a friend, and I think I’d even go as far as to say that you’re my best friend, but absolutely fucking not.”
“You owe me,” Namjoon pleaded. “Come on, Yoongi, it’s not a big deal.”
“Your boyfriend’s best friend’s best friend needs a fake boyfriend to come out to his family this Chuseok, all the way in fucking Busan.” Yoongi repeated drily without pause, making Namjoon wince. He flipped a page of his textbook, picking up his highlighter. “Not a big deal, Namjoon. Amazing.”
Me: This is a really really long fic but god do I love it. It is worth it. Slow but the character development is really really well done. It is also yet another pretend boyfriend fics (I just love them)
Jimin is being courted for the first time. He doesn’t really know what to do.
Me: This fic is in the OmegaVerse, if you are not into it please do not enter. I repeat, DO NOT ENTER. However if you are, this fic is just too precious not to share I want to drown in the fluffiness of it all.
As a romance novelist, one would think Min Yoongi would have his own romantic life sorted out a little more than he actually did. Because instead of being in a happy, nauseating relationship, Yoongi was juggling both a one-sided crush and some punk who lived downstairs.
Me: This is an AU where Yoongi is a writer and Jin is a librarian. I highly recommend the entire series.
Even was warm, soft hands were enveloped around his hips as Isak’s lips trailed down his chest, causing his stomach to tighten at the electric touch of his boyfriends mouth. he was squirming at every touch, kiss, bite and he couldn’t think of anything better than staying in this moment forever. he felt Isak’s cold fingertips tug at his undwear and sense his lips-
Even’s eyes fluttered open at the exact moment Isak’s finger hit the button on Even’s camera and filled the room with the sound of Even being photographed seconds after being awoken from a very….good dream. he couldn’t help but wonder how well his boner was hidden in that shot.
“Isaaaak” he groaned, covering his face with a pillow as his boyfriend continued snapping photos from every angle possible. he was squinting into the lense so seriously that it caused Even’s groan to be laced with an amused chuckle.
suddenly the bed creaked as Isak plopped himself right onto Even’s legs and threw the pillow off his face making Even stare up at the boy behind the camera.
Even sighed at the ceiling dramatically before raising his eyebrows into the lense. “you just can’t get enough of me can you?”
Isak grinned triumphantly as he snapped another photo “it’s not fun being on the other side of the camera is it baby.”
another snap as Even stuck out his tongue
“oh how the tables have turned” Isak said amusedly as he crawled closer and plopped himself on Even’s chest.
Even’s hand went straight to Isak’s golden curls as he shook his head “shut up you love the camera”
“nei the camera just loves me”
there was that beautiful smile and fucking hell Even couldn’t argue that.
the camera did love him.
Even wrestled the thing out of his boyfriends hands and then turned it toward him, capturing his favourite eye roll perfectly.
“so are you going to tell me why you’re suddenly turning our bedroom into a photoshoot?”
Isak gaped at him
Even squinted back
“EVEN YOU ARE GRADUATING TODAY”
“oh right” Even said nonchalantly, placing the camera on the bedside table.
this response was incomprehensible to isak
Even shrugged and smiled “yeah it is isn’t it?”
Isak threw his hands up “Even you are fucking amazing. This is fucking amazing.”
watching his baby get worked up like this caused Evens entire world to light up and he let out a breathy giggle
“it’s just finishing high school Isak”
Isak let out an adorable irritated sigh before bringing himself closer to Even so he couldn’t escape his beautiful green eyes.
like he would want to anyway. damn
“Even you are the strongest, bravest, smartest person I know and now you’re a fucking high school graduate, so not only are you the man of my life, you’re now the man of my dreams too.”
Even grinned “oh my god you are such a nerd.”
“you knew this”
“education is sexy to you huh?”
Even shook his head in disbelief at the thought that somehow after everything, he ended up with this beautiful boy literally on top of him right now.
how the fuck did he get so lucky
“how did i get so lucky?” he asked as Isak blushed and shook his head
“I think we just established i’m the lucky one here mr HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE. Now get up so you can eat the graduation breakfast i made you and get your ass to school.”
Even felt his eyebrow quirk up “oh baby no”
“honey you can’t cook”
Isak rolled his eyed “relax, it’s just toast and microwaved porridge…but i made it look pretty”
the sound of Even’s laughter echoed through the apartment as the younger boy crawled off of him and led him to the table where he had in fact set up a very pretty spread.
“you got me flowers” he said endearingly as he smiled down at his boyfriend who somehow managed to look both pleased with himself and embarrassed.
how in the world did this angel actually exist?
Isak snapped one more photo as Even took a bite of moderately burnt toast.
Isak smiled as he looked at the preview on the screen
“i’m gonna call this one ‘boys last breakfast as a high school student’”
“shit name” Even replied as he smiled brightly at his future sitting across from him.
“Thank you to the academy. You know, there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist and thank god I did because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So, here’s to August Wilson, who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people. And to Bron Pictures, Paramount, Macro, Todd Black, Molly Allen for being the cheerleaders for a movie that is about people and words. And life and forgiveness and grace. And to Michael T. Williamson, Stephen Mckinley Henderson, for being the most wonderful artists I’ve ever worked with, and oh captain, my captain, Denzel Washington. Thank you for putting two entities in the driving seat: August and God. And they served you well. And to Dan and May Ellis Davis, who were and are the center of my universe, the people who taught me good or bad how to fail, how to love, how to hold, how to lose. My parents—I’m so thankful that God chose you to bring me into this world, to my sisters, my sister Dolores, we were rich white women in the tea party games. Thank you for the imagination. And to my husband and my daughter. My heart, you and Genesis. You teach me every day how to live, how to love, I’m so glad that you are the foundation of my life. Thank you to the academy. Thank you.” - Actress Viola Davis accepts Best Supporting Actress for ‘Fences’ onstage during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood, California.

Stiles has a mission. He has a mission and a list – a long list that details with bulleted subpoints all the things wrong with his apartment. Sure, he’s thankful for having a roof over his head (if said roof didn’t leak) and at a fair price (which was really the selling point, let’s be honest). But still, Stiles drops most of his measly paycheck on rent every month, and he’d like a place that wasn’t falling apart. That was only fair.
The building meeting is on the fifth floor. When he arrives, there’s only one other guy there, sitting on a blue couch. Stiles immediately heads over to the large window and starts pacing. “I feel kinda bad for the landlord,” Stiles begins, nervous energy buzzing through his limbs.
“Oh?” the man replies.
“Yeah, I’d hate to be in his shoes, being bombarded with complaints all night. But dude, my water pressure’s terrible, three panes in the window are broken and one has a hole in it, my garbage disposal smells like something died inside of it, and that’s just the top of the list.” Stiles spins around and finally looks at the guy on the couch. He’s never seen him around before, and Stiles guesses he could be considered attractive if you find bearded gym rats hot. Stiles refrains from rolling his eyes because the guy is obviously a douche. Just look at those eyebrows.
“What about you? Please don’t tell me your apartment is perfect, but knowing my luck and probably yours, everything works perfectly for you like it always has and I got the shit apartment.” The guy just stares at him and says nothing. Stiles rolls his eyes as he turns back towards the window, mumbling under his breath, “Typical.”
Stiles spins around again, mouth open in exaggerated shock. “Oh, you mean you’re actually going to talk to me? Words finally making sense to you now?”
The man’s mouth pulls down into a scowl. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
Stiles rolls his eyes. “Look, I know it pains guys like you to talk to guys like me because it lowers your cool quotient or you only waste your breath on people as hot as you or something, but we do live in the same building. We’re neighbors. I was trying to be neighborly.”
Jamie and Murtagh’s battlefield moment. What a sweet, funny moment they shared in the thick of battle. There was no grave ‘I love yous’ (though I would have loved that too). They grinned and laughed. How wonderful is that?
Jamie and BJR lying together through the night is so haunting. Every single position they’re in is just so….dare I say it? INTIMATE? Ugh, so perfectly done, the discomfort and terribleness of that dynamic, even in death.
Ugh, same with that moment they both pass out and they basically fall to the ground cheek to cheek.
I’m thinking Claire wanted citizenship as a backup plan, if she ever chose to leave him… and Frank knows it. (I’ll have to think on that some more)
I SO love that Frank emphasizes that she CAN leave. I’m still of the opinion that had the fog of depression and grief lifted sooner, she would have. Once the baby was born though, there was enough hope to make her want to try, and then things just get more complicated by Frank and Bree’s genuine affection for one another, closing the window of opportunity for Claire faster and faster
Curious if this Killick guy will take the place of Ewan Cameron in the book (the kiss on the hand is making me curious). (but also nervous because I could REALLY do without that whole reverend/madwoman/strangler storyline)
Jamie’s weak “HAH”. I need this gif for laughing while dying scenarios.
Jamie crying for Rupert… oh it hurts.
I need the Gaelic translation STAT. I suspect it’s a prayer?
Frank writing to the reverend–really curious to see how they handle this thread. If he knows so early in the 20 years, it feels even more of a nasty think to do on Frank’s part (to keep it from Claire). But I’m optimistic! wait-and-see.
Hal and Jamie’s and Wallace’s dialogue is like… CRAZILY VERBATIM FROM THE BOOK. WHAT A NICE TOUCH!!!!
“Look….either shoot me….or go away….” (i need this gif too)
“A boy of about sixteen.” Jamie grins “Oh aye….My wife and I had this great roleplay for his benefit…..I actually did most of the benefitting….LORD it was so damn hot that night after we got some alone-time. like HOLY GODSssssssssclaireimiss you so much…..Sorry, what was the question?”
“I willna tell if you don’t” – Jamie you smartass love of mine.
anonymous asked,“stiles loses his memory and doesn’t remember anything much to the pleasure of derek’s jealous new beta who convinces stiles that them and derek are mates and stiles hates derek. derek is heartbroken when his mate stiles rejects him but instead of doing what the beta hoped derek becomes desperate to win his mate back and does of course. it would be great if you could have stiles saying to one of the others that every time derek’s around he hears the song somebody watching me playing in his head.”
Things that shouldn’t happen in a theoretical Animorphs netflix series, but probably would anyway
Hey since apparently I’m sdkfldkjf in this fandom now or something have a non-exhaustive list of things I think a director/screenwriter would stick into an Animorphs netflix series that they absolutely shouldn’t but would for the drama™ of it all
1. Berenson Brawl
Oh my god a Rachel vs Jake all out scrap. In the book it never happens except in Rachel’s fever dream. As much as she sometimes chafes against his leadership and the continual narrative suggestion that there’s a simmering desire to challenge him, having them actually fight to be in charge would be a huge disservice to both their characters as well as their relationship. Rachel and Jake have such a solid thing in which they know exactly their roles and how to work with one another, how to be each other’s anchor, leash-holder, or executioner if they get out of line. Having them brawl for leadership would be terrible, but oh my god it would 100% happen in a netflix adaptation. how could it not? there’d be so many on screen arguments, so many instances of Jake pulling Rachel back, that it would just have to culminate into a super-dramatic, brutal, tiger v.s grizzly bear beatdown that takes up like 20 minutes of the episode and has like 3 scene changes as they crash through buildings, trees, etc.
That said, holy fuck god i would be so into it. Like it’s terrible of me but the second the fight started I’d have to pause to go pop some popcorn and pour myself a glass of wine and get hyped and then settle in for the fucking show.
2. Traitor Tobias
In Back to Before, Tobias gets Yeerked but mostly does not get his brain-controlled self up in anyone else’s business before having his head shot off. That absolutely would not fly in a netflix adaptation. There would 100% be a confrontation between Yeerk!Tobias and Rachel, and it would be tragic, and Yeerk!Tobias would probably be threatening her with a weapon to the temple, and then they’d look into each other’s eyes or some shit, and there’d be this moment of recognition…before someone, probably Ax or Marco, ices Tobias from behind. He collapses and Rachel catches him automatically, holds him in her arms and stares into his empty eyes, not understanding where this profound pain is coming from…
I would be full out weeping. still drinking wine, but also weeping.
If you think we’re getting an adaptation involving spying, subterfuge, and teenagers, and not have one of them have to seduce a potential high ranking Yeerk controller who’s attending their school, you do not understand what old men in media think teenage audiences want to see. Someone’s going to a fancy restaurant with a potential enemy while everyone else hides in ridiculous outfits.
I would find this acceptable so long as the one on the date is Jake.
3. High School
Seriously, half the time in the books you forget they were somehow attending school. In a netflix series there would be recurring side characters, and ridiculous club responsibilities that people got sucked into, and the occasional episode climax that takes place at a school football game or pep rally for some reason. it’s the 90s. own the aesthetic.
actually I’d legitimately really be into a slightly more expansive social world for the characters. like show Jake and Rachel and Marco shifting away from their friend groups, even though they’re trying to keep up appearances. have minor characters that notice that there’s something drastically different about their friends.
4. Pair the Spares
It’s unavoidable that whenever Jake/Cassie and Rachel/Tobias get affectionate in the same scene, the camera’s going to pan to Marco and Ax standing awkwardly next to each other. Probably, they’d play it up for laughs. But I’m pretty down for out and undeniably bi Marco completely sincerely making passes at Ax whenever the rest of the team starts pairing up. And Ax just ???????? not understanding human courtship rituals.
It toes a precarious queerbaiting line but so long as it’s completely clear that Marco is actually bi I’m good with a recurring joke of anytime the established couples get mushy, Marco starts wiggling his eyebrows at Ax
I don’t even know if you pay attention to this but… I need to say that, kay? Thank you for creating such an amazing character like Ink. Seriously, he’s great. He’s so great that I finally decided to start working on reaching one of my biggest dreams - yea, I really wanted to become a nice digital painter or even an animator since few years. But I have never found any motivation or inspiration, until now. Nowdays, when I’m sitting at the desk with a pencil in my hands, I’m feeling that I can finally do it. And when I’m starting to think “oh my god, why I am even doing this, I’m so bad, screw it”, I’m reminding myself of Ink. “Golly, I can feel he’s watchin’ me, I can’t give up, what would he think, I’d better get back to work before he throw something at me”. You know, that’s really weird - how fictional persona can affect on real people. But for every fictional character stands a real person with good attitudes (in this case it’s you). Well, I know it isn’t really related to Ink’s birthday and I can’t even draw something for him (‘cos I still suck at it, I’m starting from zero) but I was waiting sooo long to write this. You’re an amazing person. Ink is an amazing character. And I promise you, next year I’m going to draw something really good for you both, but now everything I can say is “Happy Birthday, Inky. Please, do not stop watchin’ me”.
This really touched me, love, like, it hit deep man. This is all really freaking nice to hear and it makes me happy. Thank you for taking the time to write this, although you’re showing you’re grateful for my character, I’m very grateful for reading such nice words ;_; And it’s not a problem if it’s not related to Ink birthday, it’s still a nice day and I’m looking forward to seeing your work <3 Never lose that determination and believe in yourself if you feel like it’s the thing you want to do, it’s the key to personal success :) <3
