for... very bad reasons

Sormik week day 6! Woohoo! I’m back.
No baby Sormiks this time, but have all the more fluff. This one is for @amarietie/ @tmariea for Storms in Our Blood. Today’s theme is “Lastonbell—Promises/Acceptance”, and although this scene indeed takes place in Elysia and has nothing to do with the Lastonbell promise, I figured the prompt was as good as any to do a marriage proposal.
I… I went over the top with the cheesiness, didn’t I? *hides*
The layers have fancy names to distract from the ridiculous romance going on here. Like “background panels”, background background”, “fucking rain”, “fucking lightning”, “rainy bits” and “rainy muchs”.

Anyway, I’m sorry this is so rushed, but I hope it gets the idea across just fine! I really really hope you like it, Mari! :,)
This is my little thanks for your kind words and deeds for me, and for your Earth Armatus Rose occasionally saving my ass in ToLink, hoho. HAPPY SEVERAL MONTHS LATE BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING

For everyone else: go read the story, it includes more artistic use of seraphic artes, and more kisses in the rain, if that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what to tell you

I did make a post kind of defending Esperanto earlier today, but don’t get me wrong, though - Esperanto is not a great language, or rather, it is not a great language to serve as an international language. In fact judged by that standard it is a capital-b Bad language.

The only reason Esperanto succeeded to the very modest (if rather impressive) extent it has is that it was the first international language proposal that wasn’t literally completely fucking terrible, and its creator released it in an “open-source” format instead of trying to tell people what they could and couldn’t do with it. Also there wasn’t a single even remotely better international language proposal until probably at least thirty years later, and by then, after World War I, English had already made significant headway as the de facto global language. So it was nothing really to do with anything good about Esperanto.

Advances made in linguistics over the past 130 years, most particularly the realization of the true extent of the diversity of linguistic structures across the world, really reveal how flawed and parochial Esperanto is in claiming to be a “neutral” world language. To be truly accessible to speakers of languages all across the world - and even within Europe! - Esperanto could do with about 50% fewer phonemes, 85% fewer consonant clusters, and 100% fewer verbal and nominal inflections. Just to illustrate some of its unnecessary complexity.

I think it’s incredibly admirable that Esperanto has resulted in an interconnected global community of enthusiasts for a shared language, and that Esperantists throughout the past 130 years have fought to defend the dignity and rights of all human beings. But it just isn’t so that Esperanto, by its grammatical properties, is uniquely or even particularly suited to act as an international language, as I have seen many Esperantists assert over the past week in a push for publicity on the 130th anniversary of Esperanto’s creation.

They don’t care where they’re headed as long as they’re together~ (with that said, they’re probably going home)

So I’m seriously not supposed to ask any questions right now?

Tadhdf when you just can’t figure out what personality type you are because you’re everything at the same time.

Like… do I like to plan things ahead or do I prefer improvisation? Well I tend to plan first and then impulsively ditch that plan and do something entirely different.

Do I rely more on logic or feelings? My dude, the very reason why I’m so bad at making decisions is because I’m simultaneously a cold rationalist and an oversensitive crybaby and those two sides of me are constantly fighting for dominance.

Symmetra and Junkrat are fiendishly good at Pictionary but not in the way you’d expect. For a start, unless they’re on the same team they are rubbish.

With Junkrat it’s a bit more understandable: his pictures can generously be called scribbles especially if it’s not technological in nature, and most of the time his teammates spend more time trying to figure out what he’s drawing never mind how it relates to the prompt. Plus he tends to make really obscure leaps in logic that his teammates struggle to follow (Roadhog is one of the few that has a shot in hell).

Symmetra you might expect to be better, since she’s a reasonably good and very accurate drawer, but she’s bad in the opposite direction.  She’s too good, too precise.  She can’t just draw the vague impression of something, she gets hung up on little details and precision and ends up wasting all her time trying to get one picture right instead of getting her team to guess what she’s drawing.

When they’re together though, it works.  Junkrat, with his general impatience, has gotten use to trying to predict what Symmetra is working on before she’s finished, and has no qualms about firing off a million bizarre suggestions until one sticks.  Symmetra, on the other hand, has worked with Junkrat frequently enough on technical projects that she’s used to his messy scrawl and knows how to interpret what he’s working on.

And that’s why they manage to make game nights a complete, hilarious mess.  If you have either on your team, you may very well lose, but if you let them be on a team together they’re going to mow down the rest of the competition without breaking a sweat.

Hi! I'm not sure, maybe you've already wrote something like this in other requests (I don't remember all your hc although I love your works!). Maybe you want to write hc about mc and her s/o had a very bad fight. The reason was stupid and it was s/o fault that they fought so badly, but now mc is really mad. How will rfa+Saeran+V make up with her?

Aww thank you! We do have one where the fight is MC’s fault here. So here you go~ Enjoy!



Zen:

  • He was off for the evening for the first time in a long time
  • But when he asked you to go out with him, you told him you already had made plans with other friends
  • It really shouldn’t have been a big deal, but Zen blew up about it–mostly because the stress of late hours was getting to him
  • “I honestly feel like I’m more invested in this relationship than you are. You can’t even take one night off for me?”
  • All he remembers after he said those words is that you abruptly hung up on him
  • A few days go by and he cools off
  • And he starts thinking more about what he said and how stupid it was
  • You were always supporting him, and it was selfish for him to say something like that
  • You weren’t answering his texts or calls, so he goes to your apartment
  • He’s waiting at your door with a bouquet of flowers and a box of your favorite chocolates
  • You don’t even have the chance to let him in as he’s showering you with apologies
  • You listen to him, but you also say you need to talk it out
  • You assure him that you’ve been pretty busy this month, and you didn’t mean to brush him off
  • In order to compromise, you two set aside one weekend a month that is reserved only for you two

Yoosung:

  • You had been wanting to meet your parents, since you’ve already met his
  • He keeps saying he can’t because of his work and school
  • But really he’s just scared he’ll be a disappointment, so he’s avoiding it
  • You keep asking him at intervals, because it really was important to you
  • On top of it, you keep talking about all this stuff you had to do
  • He doesn’t even know why he said, but it slipped out of his mouth, “You’re turning into such a nag, MC.You’re not the only one with stuff to do.” 
  • You recoil and just quietly mumble, “Sorry. Didn’t know I was such a bother”
  • Yoosung is too ashamed to say anything, so he watches as you quietly leave
  • Within the hour, he’s spamming your phone with apologies
  • When you don’t respond, he feels so horrible and guilty
  • He has no idea how to make it up to you
  • He starts thinking about all the other things you were “nagging” him about and realized how much work you were piled with in addition to trying to make time for him
  • He writes down as many as he can and starts getting them done for you
  • As the days go on, you started to notice a lot of those errands you had to do were already done
  • You knew it was Yoosung, so you finally go to see him
  • He hesitantly gives you a hug and mutters another apology
  • He promises to go see your parents that weekend and also asks that you tell him when you’re getting overwhelmed with stuff

Jaehee:

  • Business at the cafe was booming
  • Jaehee just didn’t realize how on edge she was, as she was very task oriented
  • She tried to make sure everything was perfect, which meant she was cutting in the middle of your work if it wasn’t done fast enough or in a certain way
  • You calmly approach her and say you’re worried she’s taking too much on herself
  • But she takes it wrong in her stress, “Are you accusing me of being a control freak? Fine. Take all the work if you want.”
  • You get really quiet and leave the cafe to go home
  • You call in sick for the next three days, and Jaehee starts to get nervous thinking she really messed up
  • She realizes you were right about the work load and pull an all nighter trying to set up a better scheule
  • She presents it to you and tries to be professional, but in the middle she just kind of breaks down and apologizes
  • She admits that she really misses your presence, not just while working but afterwards
  • Of course, you forgive her and you two make an effort to always be honest about work and stress and your feelings

Jumin:

  • It had been a little while since you’ve been married
  • And he was against you working, since there really was no financial need
  • This was always a touchy subject, but since he’d been away on business trips a lot, you were getting lonely doing nothing in the penthouse
  • When he gets back from his long, no so successful trip, you bring up the working thing again
  • He takes everything you say wrongly and snaps, “I’m trying to make you as happy as possible. At least try to be grateful.”
  • You’re taken aback a little before you reply evenly, “How can I be happy when you won’t even let me have a purpose besides being trapped in this house?”
  • You storm into your room and lock the door behind you
  • Jumin collapses on the couch in exhaustion
  • After drifting in and out of sleep, he calms down and his head clears
  • And he realizes what an incredible mistake he made
  • He tries to go apologize, but you won’t open the door for him
  • So he sits down with his back against the door and starts giving his apology
  • When he’s done, he just waits patiently against the door
  • You eventually decide to leave the room, and you’re surprised to find him still leaning against the door
  • He looks up at you with these sorrowful eyes and you can’t help but forgive him 
  • But you still want to talk things out
  • He agrees and you two are just sitting on the floor in your hall working things out
  • By the end, you’re crying, he’s holding you, and you two have come to an agreement that makes you both happy


Seven:

  • You’ve been trying to help him break some of his bad habits and start taking care of himself
  • Normally, he didn’t mind
  • But lately, with everything going on with Saeran, he’d had a lack of sleep and also had been going through a rough time
  • Those self-deprecating thoughts started creeping in again and he felt like dirt already
  • You had found he’d skipped a few meals and hadn’t been getting any exercise to clear his mind
  • So, you gave him some gentle scolding
  • But he took it to heart and lashed out, “If you think I’m that incapable, why do you even bother hanging around? I don’t ask you to come by this often.”
  • There’s a moment of tense silence before you just throw your hands up
  • “Fine. I’m out.”
  • He hears you slam the door behind you as you leave his apartment
  • He gets into his broody mood for a few hours before he cools off
  • He just feels so horrible, and he knows you’re just trying to help him
  • He knows you’re not going to take his calls, so he just goes to your apartment
  • You open the door because you’re not expecting him
  • He’s holding up a bag full of your favorite take out
  • He gives you a sheepish smile, “See…now you can see if I’m eating?”
  • You still give him the silent treatment while you eat, but you feel a little less angry after eating
  • He apologizes and you two talk through some things before you’re back to your normal selves cuddling on the couch

Saeran:

  • He was having a bad few days dealing with his emotions and things resurfacing
  • You try to help by asking him questions about how he feels and just talking soothingly
  • He gets really irritated and just cracks
  • “You’re so annoying. Just shut up!”
  • You’re really hurt by this, so you just kind of fade out and leave
  • He knows right away that it affected you, but he doesn’t bother going after you
  • He thinks it’s probably a good thing anyway for you to get some space
  • But after nearly a week of not hearing from you, he starts to get worried
  • He’s also starting to miss you
  • He tries to call you, but he goes to voicemail
  • He leaves a string of messages throughout the day
  • You legitimately weren’t by your phone, but he just thinks you finally got fed up and left him
  • His apologies are so heartfelt that you forgive him after listening to all his messages
  • You find him right away to work things out
  • He agrees to try to be more sensitive to you, and you try to be more understanding of when he gets into one of his phases

V:

  • He had been putting off eye surgery for quite awhile
  • And you knew he was hiding a reason behind his procrastination
  • So, you kept pushing him to get it
  • He just feels like you don’t understand and he’s getting on edge about it
  • He gives you a lot of silent treatment and subtly makes cutting remarks
  • But this only makes you feel horrible about it, and finally your feelings just burst out
  • “If this is about keeping ties with your past…or with Rika…just tell me instead of keeping everything secret. I thought we were done with that.”
  • You walk out and everything clicks to place in his head
  • He knew you were right about keeping secrets, and he knew his behavior wasn’t acceptable
  • He types out a letter as best as he can with his good eye
  • In it, he apologizes and promises to become a better person for you
  • He also includes some other sweet things
  • He goes to your place and slips the letter under your door
  • When you read it, you can feel your heart melting
  • You guys meet up for coffee and talk face to face about working things out
  • He eventually does get the surgery, thinking of it as symbolic of leaving behind his past

Reading mean tweets after the Olympics, jerejean edition:

Jean: @raven_fan: “3 for a reason LOL” *jean sips his coffee* “if that’s an insult, you’re very bad at it and I’m sorry. I guess that’s the reason I have a six figure bank account and you don’t.”

Jeremy: @exy_cool: “hey knox, its not new years, you shouldn’t drop the ball.”
Jeremy: “well that’s not very nice…you try running around a field for an hour with things being flung at your head. I imagine you’d speak a bit more kindly. Have a good day!”

Kevin from backstage: “wHaT did they say???!!!”

Bonus: @foxesdoitbetter: “jean probably missed his mark because he was staring at knox’s ass.”
Jean: “…that’s fair. Also, Josten should know his fake accounts aren’t fooling anyone.”
Jeremy: “WHAT.”
