exhibitions visits

instagram

Today, the Engeki Haikyuu!! Exhibition finally opened! And so, together with Worry-san and the 10 Karasuno members, we took part in the opening ceremony! We got to have a preview of the exhibition before, and there’s a photobooth where you can take pictures, and the slanted stage you can go on… there’s all sorts of things! I also heard that those who visit the exhibition will receive one of the player’s photo at random!

After that, I went to the stone sauna at LaQua…! Onsen is the best.

(T/N: LaQua is a spa near Tokyo Dome.)

anonymous asked:

Hi, can you do a hc about the rfa (and v and saeran, if you write about them) on a mc that they have met before when she was drunk and was flirting with them really smoothly? And then the storylines happens and she doesn't remember them but they do?

(*´ω`*) np! I wonder if I’d flirt when drunk….So far when I’m tipsy I just get really stubborn. I think the RFA would have a handful dealin with me, haha!


Zen

-When he finally met you in person, he suddenly realized why your voice seemed so familiar.

-You were that chick from about a month back!

-But…You didn’t seem embarrassed? You just smiled and joked just like you did on the chat (albeit with a bit more blushing). Did you even remember?

-He sure did. He remembered just hanging out with his fellow co-actors, just relaxing at a local bar he enjoyed and having a few beers. He was used to women coming up to him and trying to flirt, but uh…Not drunk women who didn’t realize who he was.

-”You- You know? You look a LOT, like a LOT, like this actor guy dude from the local theater. God, you should just see that dude. His name is? Is uh. Zenny? Something I can’t fucking, remember…But god I’d lick his abs, he’s so handsome. You look like that guy man! That cool guy. That beautiful dude.

-Oh my god. He felt so fucking embarrassed for you. You just kept going and going, not realizing the whole time, until your friends finally dragged you back home.

-He thought of that scene a few times, but oh my god, your friends never told you? (GOOD FRIENDS GOOD FRIENDS)

-He decided NOT to bring it up then, not when the two of you were finally meeting in person for the second first time. 

-(A few weeks later, he finally brought it up. Your face was so red as you called your friends for confirmation. When they finally admitted what had happened, you just stood in embarrassed Shock. Until Zen finally admitted you were the one girl who managed to flirt with him at a bar and he actually got interested in you.)

Jaehee

-Jumin had given her so ‘free’ time. Which was, of course, allowing her to go on a wine tasting event with him. It was a bit better than working (and he’d probably have her set up a few meetings anyway), so she agreed.

-She didn’t drink often, but she could see how some lightweights could become overwhelmed with the all the samples.

-At least, that’s the excuse she came up for you. God, as soon as she heard your voice on the phone, she instantly remembered how drunk you had gotten at that simple wine tasting event. But you didn’t remember her? It stung a little, but you were…Very. Very drunk.

-She remembered you trying to casually walk towards her. She thought you were wanting to talk to her about Jumin, praying that it wasn’t about how you could get a date with him. But when you slid your arm around hers and slurred, she nearly had her heart stop.

-”You-You are literally the only pretty person here. These dudes are so uuugly. Oh my god, how come rich guys can’t even look decent half the time. Do you like girls? I like girls. I’m a girl. You’re a girl. Lets. Lets hang out. Blow this popsicle stands. We’ll have fun.”

-When security dragged you away (Jumin’s doing, with light murmurs of complaints from him), Jaehee had to try her best not to blush and laugh.

-You were cute, but oh my god she had never been flirted with like that.

-As the two of you started dating, she never, ever mentioned it. Not until about a year later after a night you had gotten tipsy again, and thankfully you two just laughed together about it.

Jumin

-As soon as he heard you voice, he knew it was familiar. A nice one, something that didn’t urk him that much.

-Seeing you in person made him immediately want to ban all wine from the RFA party. How you were so shameless he never understood.

-A few months back, he had attended an event that allowed for extra guests to be brought. He didn’t really remember which one. He had went to so many they just blurred together at times.

-He did, however, remember clearly of a drunken woman suddenly grasping his arm. He immediately was annoyed, thinking it was some other woman who had tried flirting with him earlier, but when it was someone new, he gave you a moment to talk.

- “These rich dudes are so. Boring. Are you boring too? You look cool. You look…Cool. Not borin’. Not borin’ at alllllll. Do you wanna be not boring together? Like. The dude who brought me doesn’t even know where I am. Fuck em. Fuck em all. I’d even fuck you if you’d lemme.”

-Oh my god.

-Security had came and gotten you later, and he just sighed and fixed his sleeve. He thought you were ridiculous. 

-So at the RFA party, when you said you were introducing yourself the first time, he called you out on it. It wasn’t the first time you two had met.

-He ended up going in full detail, exactly what you said, how your hair was messed up, how everything about you was just. Embarrassing.

-Your first RFA party was filled with many embarrassing moments after that, especially from a teasing Seven.

Seven

-He was just hanging out with Zen when the drunk you came sauntering up, looking strangely confident and slightly confused.

-He almost pulled his phone out, getting ready to film what was possibly Zen’s most embarrassing moment.

-Instead, his hands froze when you passed by Zen and went directly to him.

-“You’re. You’re weird lookin. Not in a bad way though. Like. You look weird but cool. Cute. Yeaaah. I like redheads. Are you into girls? Or guys? Because i wanna. I wanna take ya out.”

-Omg. He was dying. He never really had this happen before, and Zen’s shocked expression was totally worth it.

-Before he could give you a reply, your friends finally found you and pulled you away while spouting apologies.

-So when he found out exactly who you were when he did his background check, he laughed so hard

-He wouldn’t bring it up with the others around (Maybe Zen), but he’d tease the FUCK outta you about it.

-“I guess you got what you wanted, huh?”

Yoosung

-Poor baby. He’d NEVER bring it up to you, except on his deathbed.

-He had finally agreed to go to the bar Zen wanted to take him to. He was a bit nervous because of how often he was being carded. His hands wouldn’t stop shaking!!

-Of course, to make matters worse, there were girls flirting with Zen constantly. He was just here as a third wheel!

-He watched as another girl kinda. Stumbled over to Zen. Great. He couldn’t even have drunk girls- Oh god she was going to him, not Zen!

-“Heyaaa, cutie? You’re preeeetty young, huh? Barely able to get in here huh? Hahaha.. but you’re so so cute. Hey, cutie, gimme your phone number! I’ll be your girlfriend!”

-Oh my god. Oh. My god. He was mortified. Even Zen was watching! Oh my god.

-Before he could gather the courage to respond, he saw a few girls come and drag you away, full of scolding and giggles.

-That night, Zen just laughed and patted your back.

-Of course Zen wasn’t laughing now as Yoosung kissed you, vowing to keep that memory to himself.

-(Until Zen told you literally a day later)

V

-V didn’t really go to bars or anything of the sort. But when he visited exhibitions, especially ones he was also featured in, they tended to offer wine to drink.

-Unfortunately, not everyone could hold their alcohol.

-He watched a woman stumble a bit, quietly murmuring to several different pictures.

-Eventually she made over to where he was standing.

- “God. I love this one. This. This is a good one. Better than the others. Wait. No, that’s mean. Those are good too. But this one, this one is like. Good good.”

-Oh god. He was trying his best not to laugh. He decided to stand beside his own just in case he could answer questions, or interest people in more of his works. He was not expecting this.

- “But man. This guy has to be sooo fun to be with. I’d love to date this guy! Have coffee! Talk about. Flowers and shit. God, I’d probably sleep with him too.”

- Wow?? He didn’t even know how to respond. So… He didn’t. He watched you sleepily study his picture and… Walk away.

-Flash to him finally meeting you after the RFA party, and you didn’t seem to remember him OR his pictures at all.

-He worried a bit if his pictures just didn’t last well in people, but when you looked as if you never saw them, he concluded maybe you just didn’t remember that day whatsoever.

-Later on, when you two had been together, he always kept you away from the wine at his exhibits. When you questioned him about this, he finally told you about the first time he met you.

-Needless to say, you never drank at exhibitions ever again


Saeran

-The first time he met you, before the whole RFA mess, was at a bar.

-Needless to say, he pegged you as a target before you really said anything.

-He had watched you from a corner, just basically watching everyone. He was just trying to see what the fuss was about with bars.

-The drunks were annoying. And stupid. Annoyingly stupid.

-But… He wasn’t expecting a decent looking one come to him and try hitting on him.

-He watched, slightly amused, as you stumbled over your words.

-“You’re a little black parade looking punk, aren’t you? Lookin. All tough. And like a punk. Very punky. Can I sit with you, punk? You’re. Cute punk. Yeah! I like punk stuff too, imma even gonna get this badass tattoo one day, man! Whoop!”

-He didn’t even manage to give a response before you sat down and promptly conked the fuck out.

-He didn’t really know what to do, and since he didn’t feel like getting mixed up in anything, he left the bar before any of your friends could question him.

-So when the two of you finally met in person, and you introduced himself, he just laughed for a while.

-“Do you not remember me?”

-After a brief explanation, he ended up laughing for a looong time with how red you had gotten. He actually joined Seven in teasing you.

Dark shadows glided across the tan pavement, fiery rays from behind their sources blasting them into presence. The Lincoln Park Zoo was buzzing with visitors, you and Rob among them. People flickered in and out of your sight, impatience and excitement riddling their features as they made their way from exhibit to exhibit.

You had been to a zoo once in your life, and you hadn’t even been at home. You were young, eyes full of wonder, full of expectation for life, mouth always twisted up in some sort of small smile. You had been sent to Arizona to visit your mother’s side of the family, your grandparents before they had both passed away some years later. It was the only time other than when you boarded the plane for California that you were away from home. You were a kid, carefree and passionate about anything and everything. You remembered rushing from exhibit to exhibit, completely fascinated about the sights around you, intrigued with the unknown. It always counted as one of the best days of your life, especially when you returned home and your father died not too long after, forcing Chase to take over and then recruit you years later. So, the zoo was a fairly bittersweet place for you.

Exaltation

I don’t have an AO3 account or I’d post this there (I just signed up to request an invitation so we’ll see how it goes lmao) but yeah… After talking with @xxleondraxx last night I got an idea: Jaal probably has nightmares/exhibits PTSD symptoms, after visiting that Kett facility on Voeld and watching that Angara get Exalted. 

So I took the idea and ran with it and wrote a little 1k word fic about it!! Yeah!!
I honestly don’t know how good it is so like… idk be gentle lmao


              It was loud; family was laughing and talking in the next room over, while Ryder and Jaal were together in his room. She was on his chest, eyes closed, while he stared at the ceiling watching the stars and nebulas shift and change before his eyes. He sighed and felt content; he felt warm and safe with Ryder with him. He hugged her closer to his chest and closed his eyes to join his darling one in a brief nap before they departed back to the Tempest after their visit…

Sorry for almost killing you.

When Y/N was born, those were the words printed on her wrist. That sentence is what the universe said would be the first words her soulmate ever says to her. Her parents, of course, were more than a little concerned.

Y/N, on the other hand, couldn’t wait to find out who this person is (possible danger aside). The whole idea of soulmates was always fascinating, and she longed to find hers.

What the hell is going on?

Sam slightly resented the words printed on his wrist. Though undeniably unique, he never heard the end of it from his brother Dean.

Ahkmenrah x Reader: Jealousy Part 2

I don’t own the picture, and I don’t own Night at the Museum.  Other than that, enjoy!

“Marry me.”

“No.”  Kahmunrah glowered at you across the table.  Ever since the death of your husband, he had lost all decorum and asked you to marry him on a daily basis.

“I’m beginning to lose my patience my dear.”  You slammed your fork down.

“Does that mean you’ll stop asking?”  You picked up your goblet and raised it to your lips, raising an eyebrow.

“Depends.  Will you say yes?”

“What do you think?”  He laughed shortly.

“I think I’ll give you one last chance.”  You stood up and stormed out of the room.

“I’d sooner die!”  You shouted over your shoulder.  Ahkmenrah stared after your form. 

“That can be arranged,” He murmured as he stared at a half-empty vial of green liquid.

“Will you need anything else, My Lady?” You smiled at your hand maid.

“No, thank you.  That will be all.  Goodnight,” The maid bowed and left the room.  You got into the bed, and grabbed the pitcher on your bedside table, pouring a small amount of water into your goblet.  You took a drink…

…And your throat immediately set on fire.  You gasped and choked as you clawed at your neck.  In your panic, you fell out of bed as the edges of your vision began to go blurry.  You heard footsteps approach you, and you looked up to see Kahmunrah standing over you.

Smiling.

Your eyes widened as you realized what had happened.

“Kahmunrah,” You choked.  “You…What have you…”  He kneeled down.

“You should have joined me, Y/N,” You glared at him with as much hatred as you could muster, before everything went black.

“Hey, Larry!  I brought takeout,” You shouted into the museum as you ducked Rexy’s tail.

“Y/N! Hey,” You turned.  “You need to see this!”

“What?”

“You remember that mummy?”

“The one that you were told never to let out?”  Larry didn’t answer.  “Oh my God.  You didn’t,”  He didn’t answer.  “What the hell, Larry!”  You turned the corner and saw a man facing the wall of hieroglyphics. 

“Hey Ahk, this is Y/N,”  Ahkmenrah turned around to greet you, but he froze when his eyes landed on you.

“Y-Y/N?”

“Yes?”

“Y/N?”

“That’s my name,” You said awkwardly.   Before anyone could react, his arms were wrapped around you and he was holding you as tightly as he could.

“Whoa!” Larry exclaimed.  “Ahk, what are you doing?”

“My wife,” He murmured in your ear.  “I thought I’d never see you again,”   You had no idea what was going on, but you’d be lying if you said it didn’t feel familiar.

“I had a wife,” He told Larry once he reluctantly released you.  “She looked exactly like her and her name was Y/N.  It has to be you.”  He said.  “It’s too coincidental.  Do you remember anything?”  You thought.  You thought about the times you had visited the exhibit, anything that seemed familiar.  You remembered a small plaque detailing Ahkmenrah’s family.  His parents, his brother, and his wife.

And then it hit you.  Memories came flooding back and tears began flowing down your cheeks.

“Are you alright?”  Ahkmenrah asked.  Without a word, you wrapped your arms around his neck and held on as tightly as you could.  He hesitantly wrapped his arms around your back.

“I love you,” You whimpered.  “I love you so much,” He stiffened, before crushing you against his chest.

“You’re back,” He kissed your hair over and over and nuzzled his face into your neck.  “That’s all that matters.”

Thanks to _Smizzles_ for requesting this one!

Ahkmenrah wooing a lady: 

- He was the ruler of a great country that pioneered in many things, and his confidence reflects this in the way he approaches you. 

- Pickup lines that would be considered over the top or overly intense in this day and age. 

“You are the reason that Ra rises in the sky every day.” 

“Your beauty is unrivalled by even the most intricate and colourful artwork.” 

“Papyruses will be written about how striking your eyes are.” 

“The gods spent more time on your creation than any other creature on the planet.” 

- Petnames. Holy petnames. 

“My love.” 

“Dear princess of Y/C.” 

“Precious jewel.” 

“My brave queen.”

- Him being incredibly protective over you, even a little possessive.

- You explaining that he doesn’t need to kneel and kiss your hand every time he sees you. (Even though you fuckin’ love it.) 

- Him telling you stories about ancient Egypt, holding your hands in his while he does so. 

- Him reading up on your culture and your interests so he can discuss the things you’re passionate about with you. 

- Ahk will always steal you away for a dance alone at the museum parties.  

“My queen, I only I should be able to see your hips move in such a manner.”

- The statues of Anubis bowing to you in respect when you visit his exhibit. 

- You’re the only one he lets try on his crown and jewellery, because he loves how it looks on you.  

-Him imagining how it would be if he could make you his queen and rule over Egypt with him while he lies in his sarcophagus, waiting for night to fall.

Hello! I'm a 13 year old female artist and I just went with my mother, father, and younger sister to see your exhibit at UCC and may I just say that I am extraordinarily inspired and very glad that I saw a flyer at my art class for the exhibit.

Hi! thank you so much for taking the time to visit my exhibition at UCC. And thank you for bringing your family along. I’m happy to read that you felt inspired and I hope it encourages you to make things and to share your voice and thoughts out loud.

G-Dragon’s Exhibition PeaceMinusOne

Hello, this is G-Dragon.
Welcome to the Peaceminusone World.
You may find the title Peaceminusone difficult or unfamiliar, it’s my album’s logo and my second name, and represents my other self inside me.
Therefore, as you see this exhibition named Peaceminusone, it would be and opportunity for you to feel more familiar with the human Kwon Jiyong and the singer G-Dragon. it would be an opportunity to take a closer look at multi-layers, not just the piecemeal aspects of me that’s on media, but at my inside aspects and thoughts.
As many people are, i’m no different than just a general visitor. i’m not the person who have studies art since i was young, nor i am studying now. There were times i told people that art is difficult, hard to understand, and i just do not know about it. but i prepared this exhibition hoping that through it and through me, you would find it easier to access art. I hope everyone can visit easily, and see, hear, and feel this exhibition just as everyone can listen to my music easily.
That is my small wish and the purpose of this exhibition after visiting, i hope you to tell me a little bit of it as you write a diary, as you scrawl, or as you chat with your friend, rather than to judge or define the same to show someone as a report. More than anything, i hope you enjoy. because there is no answer

Thank you. [X]

Secret Unkept

A/N: This is a follow-up and final piece to Busted, which was requested by @damhunterofartemis! It’s a bit on the short side, but I hope you enjoy! <3 

@coveofmemories

                                                ———————

“You ARE busted!” JJ said, looking at Spencer wide-eyed. “You have a new girlfriend and didn’t tell anyone?” She was surprised he was able to keep the secret so well, he was normally much more expressive when he was dating someone, so his face gave it away.

You laughed under your breath, “Not new, JJ.”

“What do you mean?” she asked, turning to you in surprise. “How long have you been seeing each other?”

“Over a year.”

“What!?” she screeched, before being shushed by the museum employee. She turned back to Spencer, punching him in the arm.

“Ow!” he laughed. “We just didn’t want to be under the microscope until we were ready.” He grabbed your hand and pulled you into his embrace.

You looked up from his chest and toward JJ again. “We actually talked about him mentioning me when he went back to work on Monday.” He’d been out for a week to go visit his mother in Vegas.

“Well finally,” she said exasperatedly. She looked at her watch, realizing that she had been gone for about 10 minutes and needed to get back to the kids.

“Henry’s field trip is today?” he asked.

JJ nodded as you gasped, “Henry’s here? Spencer’s told me all about him.”

“Do you wanna meet him?” she asked. “I’m sure he’d love to meet you and I know he’d love to see his uncle.”

You looked toward Spencer and with confirmation, you both followed JJ to an exhibit you’d already visited during the day. “Hey, Henry, look who I ran into!”

The little blond boy with adorable hair ran into Spencer’s arms. “Uncle Spencer!” Henry wrapped his arms around Spencer’s neck. “I’ve missed you. Who’s this?”

“This is my girlfriend, Y/N,” he told Henry, searching his face for signs of approval. Henry looked toward you and extended his hand, introducing himself like a gentleman.

“Hi, I’m Henry. Be good to my Uncle Spencer, okay?”

You laughed. It was obvious he loved his uncle very much. “I will, I promise.” As he walked back to his classmates, you told JJ how adorable he was.”

“Thank you,” she replied. “I’d say he likes you.”

“I would hope so, I need his approval.”

JJ looked toward the group of kids who were slowly migrating toward the next exhibit. “I have to go. I’m a chaperone, but maybe sometime this week the whole group of us can get together so we can get to know you.”

“You ready for that, Spence?” you asked. “Now’s a good a time as any.”

“How about Wednesday?” he asked JJ. “Would that work?”

She responded. “I think so. See you then.”

                                               ———————

“I can’t believe you managed to keep this woman a secret for more than a year,” Derek said for the third time that night. “If I was seeing a woman like you I’d be screaming it from the rooftops.” Ever the charmer, Derek had picked up your hand and kissed the back of it.

“Hey!” Spencer said, punching him in the arm. “Hands off!”

Over the past hour, you had told everyone how you’d met Spencer (he’d helped you out on the side of the road when your car broke down), how difficult it was to keep your little secret and how much you’d fallen for the man with a beautiful face and a heart of gold during the course of the last year. “I’m definitely looking forward to spending the rest of my life with this man,” you said, rubbing Spencer’s forearm.

Everyone went silent. “What?” Penelope asked, her eyes wide with anticipation. She looked between you and Spencer with a look of unrestrained glee. “Are you? Are YOU?!”

“Oh, yea,” you said, pulling a diamond ring out of your pocket book. “I can finally put this back on.”

“WHAT?!” everyone burst out, enveloping you in a hug that welcomed you into the family.

so today we had a guest lecture at my cultural heritage college, and it was a project leader from the amsterdam museum who was telling us about some temporary exhibits

in 2015 they did ‘transmission’, an exhibit with an audiotour voiced by the trans people that had helped built the exhibit, and every day they’d have an hour long conversation with people that visited the exhibit and the trans people that helped, where they’d just discuss their experience and stuff

another cool thing is that the museum really listened to the people helping them, and now they’ve had permanent gender neutral toilets since 2015

representation matters, voices matter
