Today I went to the auto shop and I said goodbye to my car. It was hard. I dropped it off last Tuesday thinking I’d be back to pick it up on Friday, and now I’m giving it up to be salvaged. So much can change in a week.
I cleaned it out. I spent a while just kind of standing there with my hand on it, thinking of all the times I’ve walked to it and hopped in. I sat behind the wheel of the car, where I’ve spent hours, driving in Arizona, California, and Minnesota, one last time.
I thought “thank you” to the car that I’ve had since I was 16, and conveyed me safely through countless travels, in rain and shine. I put my dog in that car, my cat, my friend’s cat that I fostered, my visiting tumblr friends, my parents, my friends, a ton of junk from work, my wet swimsuit (that irrevocably stained the passenger side seat), my stuff, when I was moving from Arizona to California and then from California to Minnesota, and so much food that I’d eat while driving on the way to where ever I was going.
My car drove me through being a teenager, a kid in high school, to adulthood. It was with me along a journey I could never have predicted as a 16-year-old. It was always reliable, and such a blessing. I’ll always remember it! I’ll always have a soft spot for Nissans and smile when I see a Nissan Sentra out on the road.

Dark, gray clouds blocked any source of light from shining through the big, thick glass windows surrounding every inch of the building.
The entire tower was filled with a solemn mood that spread into every corner and room.
Most of the team dreaded days like these, since it put a damper on their mood, (especially Steve).
You, however, cherished days like these the most.
It’s where you find your peace and inner self, no matter how depressing that may sound.
It helps you relax and release any stresses that corrupt your thoughts.
But the best reason of all is that you don’t have to leave the house, even if you had a date with Peter tonight.
However, thinking that idea through, you realized something.
The Hwarang Cast - aka Yoonwoo, Jihan, Minho, Hyungsik and Seojun (apparently the last two)
Kai is there.
Taemin is there.
I’m just so so weak for these friends supporting each other. How did they even manage to get tickets?? I’m sure the tickets sold out within like a minute or two considering how much the fandom has grown.
weirdly gravitating towards clothes that don’t even look like they’re from this century
“they’re comfy ok what more do you want from clothes”
finds a pair of (key: ugly) elastic pants (minho: i think my grandma has the same pair)
snaps the waistband a few times
these are his now and he’s never taking them off
actually pays for them while wearing them
he wears (minho’s) grandma’s clothes
he looks incredible
has been in the dressing room for a while
they know he’s still in there bc they can see his sneakers (taemin: hyung you good?? / jong: *mumbling something* / ot4: what
HE’S STUCK OK
can’t even open the door bc his arms are incapacitated so a worker has to open it with a key
the door swings open to reveal kim jonghyun, world-famous kpop singer, national heartthrob, owner of a lambo, mother of taemin, all sorts of tangled up in a sweater with his arms sticking out and his head somewhere swallowed in the fabric
shinee: ………………. / jong: …….. you guys gonna help me or what
everyone snapped a picture (minho: this is going to be my new contact photo for you ahaha what a dumbass)
still BUYS the sweater (jong: it looked good when properly put on ok)
brought his own canvas bag
“my body is ready, let us begin”
taemin’s pulling random shit off the hangers saying ooo~ try this giant flamingo-print shirt on
but he tied it so it looks good and that was not the reality taemin expected (jong: hey / taemin: you plagiarized my album)
his pile of stuff he wants is v rapidly growing and he’s thinking of all the diy projects he could do
actual sparkly eyes at all his new clothes and possibilities
actively choosing not to question the members’ fashion choices too much bc his stress level will just go up, up, UP (hitchhiking baby)
is he just really good at finding good things or does just everything look good on him? (key: both. it’s both
buys another pair of track pants to add to his ever-growing collection (”i didn’t have a green one let me live”)
“guys doesn’t this pullover remind you of our suits from dream girl era?” / ot4: haha yeah omg those suits
it’s a frankenstein’s monster of patterns and he loves it a lot
he just kept on holding it the entire time they were there, very fiercely defending its honor from taemin’s general assholery (taemin: it’s ugly / minho: your face is ugly)
unironically wears it everywhere
it makes him easy to spot in a crowd tho
might as well be wearing a neon sign
choi minho, rising fashionista or fashion terrorist?
isn’t really his scene but since he’s here might as well have some fun~
every time he talks to a member he’s wearing a different floppy hat but they’re not commenting on it
TvT notice me senpais
pulling the most ridiculous things he could find and posing and strutting like he’s on a runway
Hey MAHM! Hope you're having a good night ><~ loves Could u do a SHINee reacting to it being rainy and they were supposed to go out? Like thunder and lightning rainy xD
hi baby~ i love this prompt bc shinee’s known as the rainy men literally they bring clouds to whatever event they perform at
squints at sky
hoe don’t do it
sky: *begins to pour*
OMG not again
and the wind is blowing so hard that the rain is going sidewAYS
they’re staying inside
plans are cancelled
this day in general is cancelled
the last time he went out in this kind of weather his umbrella flipped and dragged him down the street while he struggled to maintain his dignity (jong: looked like a v harassed mary poppins / onew: helpful, thanks)
ah the weather matches my stormy poetic heart
but also scowling and calling the weather app a liar bc he chECKED the forecast maybe once an hour yesterday and it said that it was supposed sunshiney af all day today
that’s why there’s no trust in this family
looking forlornly out the window
do you think that someone put a curse on them
how does this always happen
i can wear my jeremy scott raincoat~~~
therefore was voted the one to go out and buy groceries bc they are out and are in need of food
damn his fashionable practicality
when he came back he’s dripping and his bangs are plastered to his forehead (minho: wow did jonghyun cry on you / jong: *was minding his own damn business* hEY)
jong: where did your umbrella go / key: i don’t want to talk about it / onew: *pats his shoulder* i feel you
shakes his hair like a dog @ all the members
like father, like sons
v rudely awakened by a clap of thunder
he bolted up so he found himself in a sitting position with his fists up
(onew: it’S ALIVE!!!!! ALIVEEEEEE)
laughing at himself bc you can’t fight the sky minho
covers his head again with his blankets bc clearly the universe hates them and don’t want them to go out
making everyone ramen (taemin: i’m helping / minho: absolutely not)
so that they could eat while they grumble at the sky like old men
guys they could totally still go out
after key headbutts him with his still wet hair:
everything is terrible
why must they live like this
he busyeoed the ramen (ot4: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO RAMEN)
he put on sunny day video from youtube so they could pretend that it’s nice out (ot5: wow this is a next level of sad)
