Shy anon here~ bringing you more cute reaction requests! Can you write one of BTS reacting to you being surprisingly good at ice skating even though its your first time? I just got home from going ice skating for the first time ever myself and i turned out to be really good at it too //i fell only twice!!! *proud* Anyways~ that gave me the idea for this reaction request~ Thanks! ♡♡♡

Hi hi hi my little shy anonnnnn ❤ You’re right, this is definitely a really cute request!! Congrats on your ice skating!! I wish I could go ice skating rn oml it’s 40 something degrees in Australia at the moment (celsius lol idk about fahrenheit… just know that it’s really REALLY hot and I’m dying). So yeah, ice skating would be real nice. But omg good job for only falling twice on your first go! When I first went ice skating I fell 10 times. Not even joking. I was counting. But anywayy thanks so much for the request and I hope you like it!! ❤

BTS Reaction to you being good at ice skating

He’d be trying to show you how to skate backwards or something and would be talking about how difficult it is when you suddenly start doing it and surprise him. He’d be left standing there with his mouth open and amazed.

Wait… you can do it already? And you’re better at it than me???

He would tell you that he would be totally okay with skating slowly so that you can get used to the ice (or maybe just because he doesn’t want to move much, who knows), but he’d find that you end up dragging him along as you go faster. It’d probably end with you holding his wrist as he slides around after you on his butt.

Y/N, stop, my butt’s getting wet.

With you and Hoseok you’d probably get into a competition to see who could stay up the longest, and you’d be pushing at each other trying to make the other fall. He’d get really surprised to find that it would be really difficult to make you fall since you were so good.

*shove* Wtf how did you survive that?! *shoves again* Y/N WHY WON’T YOU FALL.

Not wanting to admit that you’re far better at this than him, he’d just skate around after you, trying desperately to keep up with how fast you’re going. But knowing him it wouldn’t really work…

Yeah this is eeeeasy… hehe *trips* *splits ice* *falls into freezing cold water* *becomes ice cube*

He would definitely be good at ice skating, I can just feel it. He’d be doing spins and twirls and all that shit to impress you. He’d also probably try to run away from you since he’d think you wouldn’t be able to keep up with him, but would be very surprised to find that you can.

*looks back to see you right next to him* Oh. You’re better than I thought…

Tae ice skating would be like a deer or a giraffe learning to walk. He’d be slipping and sliding around like an idiot, and would eventually give up to contently sit on the ice and watch you skating like a pro instead.

He would just try and beat you at it because he’s the golden maknae and he’d have to be better than you. The question is, would he succeed like he usually does, or would he fail because he’s a meme?

Option 1:
*eyes widen* Oh wow. You’re… really good… *coughs* I mean- I’m better. *executes perfect triple spin* *smirks* See?

Option 2:
*eyes widen* Oh wow. You’re… really good… *coughs* I mean- I’m better. *tries but falls flat on his face* *coughs again* See?

WHILE I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU ON SHEER PRINCIPLE, Bug-san is, like, RIGHT next to an open window. Their safety is RIGHT there. Seconds away.

Not close enough that it can ACTUALLY FIGURE THIS OUT FOR THEMSELF though. 

I feel like the universe is testing me. 



I love when people ask “If you were a ______, what would you be?” because I love to fuck around with it.

Someone asked what kitchen utensil I would be so I told them I would be a spork because I am neither a spoon, nor a fork, but also both at once. 

Someone asked me what cheese I would be and I said processed cheese, because I appear to be one thing when in reality I’m something totally different. 

What crayon? I’m the yellow crayon that got some black on it, so in reality it isn’t yellow anymore (even though people will continuously call it that).

What kind of dog? Probably a fox, because although its scientifically a dog, people still wonder if maybe it’s a type of cat instead.

What country? I’m Australia because I’m both a country AND a continent


12 Days of Larents - Day 8: Mistletoe

You gotta kiss everybody underneath it, geez Harry.

So I absolutely love Christmas and even when I was little, my absolute favourite part was anticipating the look on everyone’s faces when they opened presents I got them. Unfortunately I can’t send you all a something individually though, so I hope this is an okay substitute?

Brace yourselves  for 12 days of dumb little pictures about the Larents getting ready for Christmas. I’ve been sitting on them for a little while so I’m super excited to see what you all think :D

Are These Cryptids Real?

Megalania Prisca

Megalania Prisca, formerly known as Varanus Priscus, was a prehistoric monitor lizard – several times bigger than the Komodo dragon – that roamed the Australian outback terrorizing the native fauna. Even though science acknowledges Megalania to be extinct, sightings of monitor lizards (or goannas, as they are known in Australia) the size of saltwater crocodiles have been reported during recent times.

In 1939, for example, a train traveling through New South Wales stopped in its tracks after noticing a huge log on the railway. After several minutes, the log started to move and the passengers and train conductor realized that they were looking at a huge lizard estimated to be around 28 feet (8 meters) in length. More recently, in 1979, Australian herpetologist Frank Gordon had an encounter with what he considered a living, breathing Megalania – the huge lizard sprinting in front of his jeep with enormous speed while he was traveling in the mountains of northern New South Wales.

Ri and Ilkai

Ri and Ilkai are the names given by tribes in Papua New Guinea to an elusive species of humanoid sea creature that is said to resemble mermaids. Although the existence of such a creature may be quite preposterous from an evolutionary viewpoint, the large number of reports coming from natives has proven very intriguing.

In 1983, two American scientists, zoologist Richard Greenwell and anthropologist Roy Wagner, set up an expedition into an area rich with Ilkai sightings, hoping to solve the mystery of the fabled sea people. The two men expected the creatures to be dugongs, seals or dolphins, mistaken for sea people by the locals. Nevertheless, after seeing the mysterious creatures terrorize small fish in a bay, Greenwell and Wagner drew the conclusion that Ilkai were indeed an unknown species, and that the natives knew very well the difference between them and other sea mammals. Unfortunately, the remoteness of the area and the lack of funding put an abrupt end to their expedition, and the sea people of Papua New Guinea remain a mystery to this day. 


The agogve of Kenya and Uganda bear some resemblance to the almas, but are smaller in stature and often described as upright walking bonobos with vaguely human features such as long, slender hands. British explorer and hunter J. Cottnay attempted to hunt agogve creatures, only to have the natives persistently refuse to help him. The same thing happened in 1983, when a British team of zoologists was prevented from capturing one by the local people, who hold that the creatures are “the grandfathers of men.” Many cryptozoologists believe that the agogve are remnants of the population of Australopithecus that inhabited Africa roughly four million years ago.


You don’t need to be a cryptozoology buff to have heard about the Yeti and the Bigfoot. China, too, has its own version of an elusive, oversized apelike creature that dwells in deep forests and remote mountain ranges: the yeren.

Unlike the Bigfoot of North America, the yeren has an orange fur and long reddish braids and, according to local reports, is not as shy as its North American cousin. An unusual report comes from 1942, during the bloody war waged between China and Japan. According to eyewitness Liu Jikuan, who was then just a boy, an army regiment passing through his village had captured two yerens, the animals being shackled and dragged wherever the regiment went. What became of the creatures, however, remains a mystery – but sightings of yerens in remote regions of China continue to this day.


The almas are elusive and savage man-beasts that dwell into the mountain ranges of Kazakhstan and Mongolia. Their description somewhat resembles prehistoric man, given their short stature, powerful muscles, hairy bodies and lack of ability to speak. Accounts of the almas go back for hundreds of years, and the natives consider them to be a natural part of their environment.

In 1925, a Red Army cavalry regiment led by general Mikhail Stephanovitch Topilski came across a cave. After the troops fired several rounds into the dark – expecting that enemies might be concealed within – a naked human-like animal ran out screaming, only to die several yards away from gunshot wounds. Topilski documented the animal in detail, mentioning the hairy body, powerful muscles and apelike facial features.

An even more incredible account is that of Zana, a female almas that was captured by the people of a remote village in the Zadan mountains of Georgia. Zana was domesticated by the hunter who trapped her, and strangely enough, bore him three sons, who were almost normal people but with extraordinary strength and notoriously short tempers. Zana died in 1880; the remains of his youngest son were dug up and analyzed by Soviet scientists who subsequently confirmed the fact that his skull indeed exhibited pre-human features. 


The existence of an alleged Australian version of Bigfoot, the Yowie, is an intriguing prospect compared to the potential existence of its cousins on other continents. This is due to the fact that the Australian environment is deemed to be barely capable of sustaining a population of large omnivorous primates.Nevertheless, sightings of the Yowie still occur – one of the most prominent belonging to former Queensland National Party senator Bill O’Chee. In 1977, when O’Chee was still in school, during a two-day excursion near Springbook, he and his fellow students were apparently harassed by a 10-foot (3 meter) creature with a gorilla-like face, which tore saplings from the ground with incredible ease. The group spotted the creature on several occasions during those two days, and to this day O’Chee has not changed his mind regarding the events he witnessed. To him, and to many Australians who sighted the creature, the fabled Yowie is real- and lives in the remote mountainous regions of Australia’s Gold Coast.Kongamato


 is a cryptid allegedly living in the deep marshes and jungles of Equatorial Africa – an area of special interest for cryptozoology, due to the vast number of cryptids reported there. Kongamato resembles a pterodactyl, with a wingspan of about seven feet (2 meters), and it is supposed to be fiercely territorial. Moreover, it has strong, sharp teeth, which dismisses the possibility of it being a misidentified or unknown species of bird.

In 1932, renowned explorer Ivan Sanderson was engaged in an expedition into the remote regions of Cameroon. One day, he and his team shot down an unusual flying animal that intrigued them – describing it as having a mixture of bat, bird and reptile features. Soon after, the creature’s mate attacked the explorers, who ran away terrified. The local tribes lived in terror of the Kongamato, regarding it as a herald of death – and considerably more dangerous than the lion, leopard, or black mamba snake. Field expeditions in the area are notoriously difficult and the data gathered about the elusive dinosaur-like creatures reported in Equatorial Africa remains scarce.

Orang Pendek

The Sumatran creature that locals call Orang Pendek somewhat resembles a Bigfoot – only that it is not big at all. Dwelling deep in the jungles of the island, it is said to have both apelike and human features: shortness of stature, extreme strength, and a tendency to shy away from human contact. Dutch colonists reported several sightings during the first half of the 20th century: they described a short hairy creature unlike the orang-utan or gibbon, but rather more humanlike, and capable of walking upright.


The nunda, or mngwa, is said to be a great feline lurking in the jungles of Tanzania, its size and strength considerably greater than any lion’s. Interestingly enough, hair samples of the creature were used to confirm the fact that it is indeed a new species of carnivorous mammal.

In 1922, William Hichens, Native Magistrate of Lindi, brought the creature to the attention of the European press for the first time, based on the accounts of several of his subjects whoclaimed to have been attacked by it. Scottish hunter Patrick Bowen attempted to hunt the creature during the 1920s; he failed, but nevertheless he was convinced by the animal’s tracks and hair samples that this was no species known to science. Given the rather large number of attacks on humans in the area, there have been many hunting expeditions since then – none of which has been successful yet.

Royal Wedding Challenge

Day Six: Favorite royal wedding of Denmark

Royal Wedding of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark to Mary Donaldson, held on 14 May 2004 at the Copenhagen Cathedral in Copenhagen, Denmark.

“I had only been in Australia two days before our fates were sealed, even though neither of us was aware of it. But your radiance shone clearly for me from our very first meeting. Since then I have been blinded and totally dependent on it… The joy and strength you give me is like the sun in the daytime which, with its radiance, melts all doubts and darkness on earth. And like the moon at night, you shine with a watchful and delicate beam of gentleness, which extinguishes the mischief and deceit used by the symbols of darkness.“

please pray for Washington state

Right now Washington state as well as Oregon and California are in drought, and while I don’t know about the details in the other states, more than 200,000 acres have burned in our state and half the state is under fire danger

I live near Seattle and even though the fires are on the other side of the cascades we’re getting smoke and haze here, and there’s different levels of evacuation going on on the other side of the state

We’re getting crews from Australia and New Zealand to help fight fires because we’re in such need

Please pray for us and for rain

hey so im being evicted because of some drama with my unstable/abusive mother and probably will be homeless soon, and no im not asking for money, but i havent moved house since i was thirteen and i dont know how all this works.

if anyone has any advice on what to do (ive already taken steps to try and avoid getting kicked out, but was told its highly unlikely i will succeed) id really appreciate some input from people more experienced/knowledgeable than i.

i live in australia and have three cats (though i may have to rehome one of them 😥) and am now responsible for the contents of the entire house ive shared with my mother for 9 years.

like, i dont know what to do with my animals, or my belongings, as i will likely have to stay in emergency accommodation for quite some time. i rly dont even know where to begin and really need advice. reblogging this would b great.

“I love Disney World and go as often as I can even though it costs a fortune to get there from Australia. My unwillingness to spend a single cent more than I have to so I can have an amazing week at Disney has ruined my life. I have no friends, a poor diet and am perpetually unhappy. I just convince myself that Disney isn’t worth it (and I hope I never resent it for what its caused)“
