PERSONA 5 DANCING STAR NIGHT 2018

Jounouchi and his Duel Disk and Deck

So in the new movie Jounouchi Katsuya/ Joey Wheeler has his duel disk on his arm most of the time. It was also the first tip off to the others that he was in trouble when they found his duel disk and deck without him.

At first I thought it was weird because in the sub he says he doesn’t really know what he wants to do with his life, but for now he is happy to play cards. Then I thought about it for a moment.

You have Seto and Yugi who both have no issues getting their duel disks or decks. Yugi gets all the newest models from Seto to be challenged, and while the game shop doesn’t make Yugi well off financially, he has access to good and rare cards to build a more formidable deck. For Seto he has the money to get whatever card he wants and he makes the disks, so of course he has them.

However Katsuya/ Joey has neither. He only has the duel disk he does because it came free for all those who were able to participate in Battle City. If he wants the new model he has to work hard to earn some money to get it. Not only that but his deck isn’t very impressive. It’s mostly cheep cards and low level monsters. However there are a few exceptions. In the DM world the Time Wizard is a rare card, and offering the only ‘rare’ card that he had as a gift from Yugi, he got a Red eyes black dragon, a Jinzo, Insect Queen, and Fortress Whale. So now there is a little money invested in these cards.

Judging from what we know about his past and appearance, Katsuya/ Joey doesn’t have a lot of stuff worth money. In fact I would bet that the Duel disk and his deck are the things that he has that are worth the most amount of money. So why would he carry them all the time? Especially because it’s clear he still gets into fights from time to time.

First is the only image we ever see of his apartment has it littered with beer bottles and trash. His apartment is a mess. If he left those things there they could get trashed. Then we know his father has two crippling addictions. He is an alcoholic and compulsive gambler. Speaking from experience when you have people like that around they tend to take some of the most expensive things you own to sell to feed those additions. My brother stole my entire coin and weapons collections for his additions. So what if Katsuya/ Joey is carrying his duel disk and deck everywhere to make sure his Dad just doesn’t take them while he is gone to sell?

I mean we do know he plays with Yugi at school and he was on his way to Yugi’s when he next had it, but there was no need to have his disk for the first one. I honestly think he keeps it with him at all times to keep anything from happening to it.

‘Igor?’ said Moist. 'You have an Igor?’
Oh, yes,’ said Hubert. 'That’s how I get this wonderful light. They know the secret of storing lightning in jars! But don’t let that worry you, Mr Lipspick. Just because I’m employing an Igor and working in a cellar doesn’t mean I’m some sort of madman, ha ha ha!’
Ha ha,’ agreed Moist.
Ha hah hah!,’ said Hubert. 'Hahahahahaha!! Ahahahahahahhhhh!!!!!-’
Bent slapped him on the back. Hubert coughed.
Sorry about that, it’s the air down here,’ he mumbled.

lesbiankouyou  asked:

I've been curious. What are your headcanons on the BSD characters if they were to go to college together? What would be their majors?

Hmmm~ Let’s see…

~Kunikida~

-Lives on campus with his roommate, Dazai, and is in classes to become a teacher.

-He volunteers for pretty much everything, and probably works part-time at a restaurant.

-He takes all of his classes seriously, and rarely goes to parties, but, when he does, there’s about an 80% chance he’s going to pass out drunk somewhere, so he never goes without a trusted [and sober] friend.

~Dazai~

-Lives on campus with his roommate, Kunikida, and is majoring in literature.

-He’s that student you see drinking way too much coffee at one in the afternoon while saying, “I’m going to die.” over and over again.

-He doesn’t go to parties anymore, because his parents are making him be more serious about his education.

-Probably works at a Starbucks and hates his life.

~Chuuya~

-Lives alone off campus, and is also majoring in literature.

-Doesn’t sleep, like, ever. He just kind of blanks for a moment or two and then snaps back to reality.

-Probably dating someone, but keeping it lowkey because his parents are really urging him to focus on school.

~Atsushi~

-Lives on campus in a co-ed dorm with Kyouka, who is a freshman, and majors in biology.

-He’s the scholarship student who has to work really hard to manage his grades and works two jobs to make money for food and clothes.

-Always gets lost on campus, regardless of how many times he’s gone somewhere.

~Akutagawa~

-Goes to the law school across the road from the main campus, and has an apartment.

-Only attends school when he absolutely has to, because he has medical issues.

-Works at Starbucks with Dazai.

~Kyouka~

-Undecided major, lives with Atsushi.

-The hungry student who will eat pretty much anything.

-Decorates her dorm with rabbit motifs on absolutely everything.

[That’s all I could come up with for now.]

My grandmother was like this too, I bet she`ll feel better once you guys get home.

skellysim replied to your photo “Well made it to doctors office. Can you tell gran doesn’t wanna be…”

Aw poor gran!! Hope everything goes well! ��

She really hates leaving the house. Its always a fight to get her dressed. Was mostly a checkup so they did a blood draw and added a new med to try to get her appetite back. Plus side is, I made biscuits and gravy when we got home and shes at least eating some of that. We uh..had a little issue before we left though. I went to change out her oxygen tank and the spare was apparently given to us empty. It still had the plastic seal and everything. Mom had to run home and get another while we borrowed one there.

This started out as one of those shitty panel redraws that I always do when I have an art block but it turned out MUCH better than planned. Now I want to finish painting it. 

Thanks to Shuggazoom’s climate being tropical, the Hyperforce’s suits were not at all equipped to deal with a sudden climate change, so they had to abandon them in favor of good ol’ fashioned winter wear. At least, that’s my excuse for drawing them all in cute hats and scarves. :D

When Will This End Anon?

Anon, I have to say, I was pretty optimistic that we were reaching the natural conclusion and that what we were seeing was what many had predicted, worse before it gets better.  But honestly, with the way Hedwig has been handled, with the constant reinforcement of Darren’s straightness, I am starting to lose hope that we are anywhere near the end.  And I do often wonder, why is Darren allowing the bearding to get out of control?  Why is Darren allowing publication after publication to remind us of how straight he is while playing a transgender role? Because even at its worst during Glee (Listen Up), he still had control. He still did not allow kissing photos.   And excessive “loving” couple photos like we get now.  Holiday photos.  Vacation photos.  And to that I question, what happened post-Glee that changed everything?  And why have the games gotten much, much worse? And I think to answer that you have to ask yourself why is Darren still engaging in these games?  And I think there are multiple factors.  And sorry, this got way longer than I intended.

Apple is catastrophically late to the self-driving car game

(No. Just no.Motor Trend)
After thinking that the Apple Car — “Project Titan” — was pretty much dead, we saw it crawl from the grave via a filing in California to test a self-driving technology on public roads.

With this move, Apple joins a host of other automakers and tech companies that are already permitted to test their autonomous experiments on the Golden State’s highways and byways.

And thanks to some intrepid reporting by Business Insider’s Kif Leswing, we now have some idea of what Apple is actually up to. 

The tech giant is clearly developing some type of self-driving car technology. That much is obvious from the test vehicle setup, which consists of a Lexus SUV with self-driving controls in the backseatUp front, it’s a regular old steering wheel, so that if anything goes wrong, a human driver can take over. I’m pretty sure that the “fly by wire” system is something that Apple has engineered in a bolt-on capacity.

(The interior of Apple’s “Automated System,” according to a training document obtained by Business Insider.California DMV)
There are some serious problems with this approach. For starters, bolt-on technology doesn’t work, you have to develop a self-driving technology that’s designed to be integrated into a vehicle as it’s assembled — but that’s beside the point.

The real takeaway here is that Apple’s self-driving program, although evidently not dead, might as well be. 

This is because Apple has fallen catastrophically far behind the competition. 

Just for the record, Google started outfitting Lexus SUVs back in 2009 with the first of its own self-driving technologies. Eight years later, Google has become Alphabet and the Google Car has become Waymo — and Waymo has racked up an enormous number of self-driven miles, with precisely zero monetization in sight.

Waymo’s concept of a self-driving car is very out-there, very futuristic. Meanwhile, Tesla has been taking a here-and-now approach with its Autopilot semi-self-driving tech: incremental improvement through software and hardware updates. It, too, has been racking up the real-world miles.

A lot of other automakers have been reeling in experimental miles including Ford, General Motors, BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. In fact, almost every major car company has some kind of autonomous plan under construction.

And let’s not forget about Uber, which stunned the auto establishment last year when it debuted its fleet of self-driving cars in Pittsburgh.

So let’s run through what the self-driving world is up to:

Here’s a run-down of Waymo’s efforts

(Ford fully autonomous Fusion Hybrid research vehicle on streets of Dearborn, MI. Ford has been researching autonomous vehicles for more than a decade and currently tests fully autonomous vehicles in Michigan, Arizona and California, and will triple its autonomous vehicle test fleet this year to have the largest of any automaker.Ford)

Finally, Apple’s latest:

(Apple)

The self-driving systems powering these cars use similar hardware, but are ultimately different. 

Some companies are using complex and expensive laser-radar or Lidar systems, some have combined radars and sensors, and some are using cameras. It’s not entirely clear yet what Apple’s setup consists of, but according to BI’s reporting, the training protocol demands some simple maneuvers and scenarios. 

Maybe Apple’s systems and/or vehicles are capable of more. Maybe. But the permit applications suggest that Apple has made rudimentary at best progress on autonomy. 

I have a theory about this, which is that Apple was at one time, under Project Titan, working on a fully-fledged car with a radically innovative driver/infotainment interface, an electric powertrain, and some self-driving capability.

Given that I’ve been saying the Apple Car is vaporware since the get-go, I still think that Project Titan writ large has been abandoned. But Apple has probably decided to keep the self-driving component going and is likely focusing most of its efforts on developing the software for autonomous vehicles. Hence the crude-looking setup in the test vehicle.

The problem is it has to play catch-up. Apple has a gigantic heap of cash to spend on doing just that. But sometimes, money isn’t enough when you’re running a decade behind.

It’s a tragic disaster that this website of all places just randomly happened to attract so many interested, empathetic, socially engaged people. This is the worst possible space to try to hold discussions or get things done, but if you want to interact with real serious leftists who are not yet your friends then it pretty much has to be here. Although, frankly, the communities I’ve found on Tumblr have mainly been good for me, rather than making me good; the largely regressive world of Effective Altruist Facebook has actually improved my ethical behaviour far more than tumblr has, simply because the money I’ve given to effective charities has certainly done more good than any word I’ve ever spoken. We’d all be so much better off if every identity politics post ever made was suddenly transformed into the words “whenever you have money to spare, just give it to whoever needs it the most”

revamped my commissions because A) my art has improved!  B) I have discovered a new way to do lineless painting and I wanted to add it in!  Further information is on my Commissions Page, which is also linked in my sidebar. 

Some things I will draw:

  • Original characters (100% original OR gemsonas, god tiers, etc)
  • Fanart
  • Pairing art
  • Fic illustrations

Some things I will not draw:

  • Explicit gore (blood and injury are alright)
  • Explicit sexual content
  • Mechas/robotics

I’m opening two slots, just because I think I wouldn’t have time to do more than that.  If anybody is interested, send me a message or shoot me an email. :)

 Talon was born Alyssa Justine in May of 1989. He was a fairly happy child but never felt like the body he was born with was the right one, the one he belonged in. Although he never felt like his body was his own, he was unable to transition due to the people in his life.
26 years in the wrong body, Talon has finally decided to take matters into his own hands and do what he needs, to feel whole. With a lot of back lash from his family, this process has not been a good experience. Talon legally changed his name a couple months ago and both of his parents freaked. There are not many people that have really acknowledged his new name, making his circle of people he trusts, very small. Talon has thought long and hard about having top surgery and he has decided that he would like to get it started. There is a lot that has to be done in order for him to be complete.
Talon has no idea that I am starting a GoFundMe. I had brought it up a couple of weeks ago but he refused saying “I don’t want to beg for money”. I don’t think that this is begging for money. Top surgery is very expensive, there is no way we can do this alone. I am making this in hopes that there are people out there that have at one time felt like they didn’t belong and maybe they had a person to turn to, to ask for help. Talon doesn’t have that, Talon’s support system is very sparse.
I have put $12,000 as a goal because that is an approximate cost from the surgeon he would like to go see. A surgeon who specializes in female to male surgeries. This man has come very much recommended.

I want the best for the love of my life. I don’t want to have to watch him struggle with uncomfortable chest binders for the rest of his life. I don’t want him to be stuck in the house forever, wishing he looked flatter. Talon is the most wonderful man, the sweetest, most caring human being I have had the pleasure of having in my life. I want him to be happy. All donations will go to his surgery and helping him get to California. Anything left will be donated to the foundation of his choosing.

The love of an actor - Actor!Dean Winchester x Reader

Title: The love of an actor (sorry, couldn’t think of a better one)

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader

Word count: 4,422

Warnings: None

Request: Hi I don’t know if you do request a do know ur busy (love ur blog btw!!) but if u do could you PLZ (sorry it’s detailed) do an au where Dean is famous but he’s his current age and the reader is 23 and they meet at a bar and instantly fall in love but Dean doesn’t want people to think he’s weird for dating someone so much younger so he doesn’t want to tell people that they are together but the reader is hurt by that and he ends up telling everyone via Instagram and it’s just really fluffy

A/N: So this was requested quite a while ago and I got to write it quite a while ago, as well. I only found the chance to upload this today. I really hope you like this~! And sorry for the delay!! Oh my, I hadn’t even realized it but school is going to be over in three weeks!

You let out a small breath after taking a gulp of your beer. Your looked at the beer bottle in your hand and let out a small sigh, shaking your head.

“Wow yeah, I totally agree with you” a rough voice said next to you and you turned your head to look at a man sitting at the seat that was previously empty; hell almost the whole bar was empty - save for about three to four people here and there other than you. It was a small one at the corner, not far away from your house, and not many people knew it.

“What?” you asked with a small frown trying to get more of the man in front of you. He was wearing a hat, short dark blonde spikes sticking out here and there. He had a slight scruff and you could see some freckles dusting over his nose and cheekbones. His eyes were covered behind dark black sunglasses and you couldn’t see him properly. He had huge grin on, though, his perfect pearly white teeth showing and you found yourself melting at the sight in front of you.

What? No! you thought to yourself.

I don’t even know this guy. you thought to yourself again, though there was something- something that you couldn’t point your finger on. Something that told you that you had seen this man before, somewhere, somehow, yet you couldn’t pinpoint it.

“You’re obviously having a disagreement with your beer here” he motioned to your beer “So I figured you would want to have someone stick by your side” he said casually and you couldn’t help but look at him with a stunned look.

This man was definitely crazy but… the good crazy.

A chuckle escaped your throat and when you heard him laugh, you laughed more too. You shook your head and looked down at your beer.

A smile still on your lips.

“No, no I was just thinking” you mumbled.

“Oh, ok then. Cause I thought that you were having a telepathic conversation with your beer bottle and I kind freaked out a little bit” he said, the grin never leaving his face.

“Why?” you asked before you could stop yourself.

The answer was pretty obvious anyway.

“How could anyone ever oppose those pretty eyes is impossible to believe” he said innocently and you felt heat rush in your cheeks.

Obviously not.

“You tell that to my Anatomy teacher” you mumbled under your breath, your smile fluttering for a few seconds.

“Uh I see, well it’s been a while since I was in school but- I know teachers can most of the time be real assholes so-” he stopped mid-sentence and raised his hand to the barman and order two beers; one for you and one for him.

“Thanks” you mumbled “I really need another one now” you said and he nodded with a small smile.

“No problem. If you wan to, you can even tell me what’s got you bothered too” he said a little bit unsure of himself.

“It’s just-” you began speaking, not caring for a second that you had just met the man and were just willing to open up to him “I’m tired, you know?” you said looking down at your beer.

You saw him give a small nod and you continued speaking “I try hard, for everything but it feels sometimes as if it is not enough. Everybody always seems to criticize me and- it’s so tiring. Hell, I barely find time for myself sometimes and- giving up on everything seems like the best option.” you let out a sigh, shaking your head, and taking a big sip of your beer.

“I get it, you know. It’s hard yeah, and believe me cause I’ve been through some real shit in my life but- I know that sometimes you find no hope. Hell, maybe there is no hope at all but- who knows, really?” he took a sip of his beer “But giving up? No giving up is definitely not the solution. I know that you feel like nothing matters but- if you think about it there are some things that actually matter. Whether family, friends, love or, hell, even a car! I know I would do anything for Baby!” he exclaimed with a grin when he saw the hope in your eyes and a smile making its way in your lips.

“Baby? Your- your girl?” you asked a little unsure.

“No, my car. That’s how I call her” he said and you felt a weight lift over your shoulders. You chuckled and he did the same.

“I guess you’re right” you said looking at your beer and then back at him “There are a few things that I think I could keep fighting for” you said with a smile.

“See? There you go!” he said with a wide smile and took a sip of his beer just like you did.

“Come on, tell me” he urged you and your eyes all but widened.

“What?” you asked.

“Tell me, what would you keep fighting for?” he said with a smirk that seemed really familiar; just like his voice but yet again you could not point your finger on it.

“What no! It’s-it’s silly. I-” you avoided looking at his eyes- or, well, his sunglasses basically which he had yet to take off. But you weren’t going to ask anyway. You didn’t want to prive in case the guy was, who knew, blind? Not that it would make any difference to you anyway. He had an amazing personality, as far as you could know for now, and that was all that mattered.

“Oh come on tell me!” he all but whined and you couldn’t help but think it was cute.

Snap out of it (Y/n)! you scolded yourself.

“Come on! I told you I ‘keep fighting’ for my car, and my younger brother of course, but how more crazy can it be than that?” he encouraged you.

“It is when it comes to someone I have never even met” you mumbled shyly and looked down at your hands, a blush rising in your cheeks.

“What? I didn’t hear ya!” he said with a grin and you laughed, shaking your head and running a hand over your face. Of course he had heard you but obviously wanted to know more.

“I- There is somebody that admire and- And he has inspired me a lot. He- he’s an actor, big one at that, but I don’t admire him just because of how good of an actor he is or how well he acts. It is really breathtaking how amazingly he acts. I-I once wanted to go see him on a play he was in. I’ve seen all his movies, even his first ones, but seeing him acting live in front of me could not compare to anything else. I tried to convince my parents but they couldn’t afford the tickets so I tried to put aside some money. Hell I’ve been saving money for four months. Didn’t go out with my friends at all in order not to spend any but- in the end it was worth it.” a soft smile rested on your lips “But as I said it is not how amazingly he acts that  made me admire him. He- he’s been through a lot and yet- it’s like every time I see him whether on photos or videos he- he’s always smiling. He seems so carefree that it makes me wonder if he has actually been through all of those things. But he has. And yet- yet he has managed to get this far in life that it’s astounding. Great actor, millions of fans worldwide, known by almost everybody, has more money than anyone could ever imagine and yet- he- he used to be just a simple kid when he was young. Almost with no family or money. Went through so much and now is the most famous actor ever. But never forgot where he came from, who were the ones that helped him. Never forgot who he was and that… that is just inspiring” you let out a breath you didn’t know you’ve been holding. You stopped your rambling that you hadn’t realized you had even started.

It was just the mental image of that man that could do that to you. So many emotions and thoughts would run through your mind every time. You admired him to no ends. Not only the way many girls, at your university too, would say they did. The admiration they had over him was just about his appearance. They were only fans of his for how 'hot’ he was, for his pretty eyes and well-built body, and sometimes they said they liked his movies but you knew that that wasn’t 100% real. You did not admire him for any of that - well, sort of. You could never - ever deny how good-looking he is and that the movies he was in were the best but- finding out about his past, Dean Winchester’s past, and how he had managed to get this far made you actually admire him… for him.

Dean Winchester. Great, famous movie actor that had girls running behind him and begging for just a glance or smile.

He was your idol for life and really the only person above everybody that managed to make you see the bright side of things. The small videos that he still made and uploaded on youtube for his fans, the words he said, the encouragement he gave you, always had you motivated despite the circumstances.

“What’s his name?” the guy - you had actually forgotten to ask his name, you now realized that - asked you with a small smile.

“Dean. Dean Winchester. You must have heard about him, everybody has.” you mumbled and after a small glance at him you looked down at your beer.

“Yeah, yeah I think I might have” the sudden change in his voice tone made you frown. It wasn’t playful but more of… disbelief? Awe? Wonder? Happiness? All those together.

You decided to glance at him for a second but as soon as you looked at his way the smile vanished from your face and a stunned expression took over. Not only because instead of black sunglasses your eyes locked with green orbs but because the man that now stood in front of you - hell, he has been standing there for all this time - was him.

It was him. The man you never thought you would get to meet in your life, let alone talk to - so casually for that matter - just like friends.

Dean Winchester.

… and that shit eating grin that caused butterflies to dance in your stomach and your cheeks burn hot.

~~~

Who would have thought that you would soon become more than that. More than two almost-strangers at a bar. More than two good friends shortly afterwards. More than-

“Baby?” Dean’s voice broke your trail of thoughts and you looked up from your degree in your hands up to the forest-green eyes of your lovely boyfriend.

It has been a year and a half since you met him and if someone had told you back then that you, a simple girl nothing extraordinary, would be dating someone like him you would have laughed in their face. But who could have thought of it? It had actually happened.

“Hey you” you smiled at him and after placing your degree on your desk, you made your way to him.

He grinned widely and brought his arms around your waist, yours went around his neck. You rested your forehead against his and smiled warmly.

“What were you thinking?” he asked with a smirk “Or where you having a telepathic conversation with your degree?” he soon added wiggling his eyebrows and you rolled your eyes.

“Shut up Winchester!” you hit his chest playfully “I’m still mad at you for not coming to congratulate me after I got it” you pouted and frowned at him.

“Really?” he raised and eyebrow and smirked at you “Ok then, maybe I can find a way to make it up to you?” he said suggestively and before you could responded he lifted you off the ground and wrapped your legs around his waist.

You yelped but then started giggling as he started playfully attacking your neck with kisses and bites.

“Dean!” you yelped again as he threw you onto the couch, him still on top of you.

“S-stop!” you said through giggles.

“Are you still mad at me?” he asked after pulling away from you for a second.

You frowned again at him and pursed your lips “Yes!” you said stubbornly.

“Fine then” he shrugged and your eyes widened when you saw the predatory look in his eyes.

“Dean, no don-” you didn’t have time to finish your sentence before he attacked your sides; tickling you and making your laughter fill the room.

“D-dean n-no stop!” you tried to make him stop, in vain though.

“Nope!” he said with a grin.

“Nice shirt by the way” he soon added after he finally stopped attacking your sides. It was a simple T-shirt with the Shield of Captain America: The winter soldier, his newest movie, on it. with 'I <3 heroes’ written below. It had become your most favorite movie and you loved every bit of it. Mostly because Dean had refused to go the premiere of it, coming up with every excuse he could and putting up with the Media commenting on his absence, and decided to buy it on a DVD and watch it with you at his place. He made a mini cinema there, pillows and blankets everywhere and popcorn and chocolates ready for you two to eat. Oh and of course pie. Never forget the pie.

But the movie itself was great and you had already watched it many more times than you could count. You loved every bit of it - save for the kissing scene between Dean and Scarlett. You couldn’t help but feel a little bit jealous when you saw it the first time and Dean didn’t miss the funny face you made at it - he teased you about it in the beginning, of course, but then wouldn’t stop telling how much more important you were to him and that your kisses where a lot better than any others. You couldn’t help but smile at hearing that.

Dean truly was the best boyfriend you could ask for. Sure he was an ass sometimes, and definitely a jerk but that was mostly when it came to his brother. Other than that he was sweet, kind, funny, caring and all around perfect. He was nothing like you had expected him to be - he was much more. He was so simple and normal. He didn’t think he was above everyone or more important than anyone because he was famous. He not once used that in his advantage. He did not care how much money and fame he got. He - just like you had imagined it - cared about doing only what he loved, acting, and that was all that mattered to him.

You recovered from your feat of laughter and rolled your eyes playfully at him “Yeah, whatever. It’s just because I could’t find to wear anything else, don’t flatter yourself Winchester” you said.

“Are you so sure about that?” he asked with a smirk and you raised an eyebrow at him.

“Want to prove me wrong, Captain?” you emphasized the last word and got closer to him.

“As you wish, ma’m” he said in his deep, Captain America, voice and closed the distance between you; his lips pressing to yours.

The kiss was sweet and soft in the beginning but it soon turned into heated and passionate. He would occasionally bite at your lower lip, his tongue moving in sink with yours and you found yourself seeing stars. Your stomach doing flip flops and your heart beating wildly in your chest. The effect this man had on you.

“Wow” you breathed out once you pulled away. Your cheeks were burning hot as you tried to take in as many breaths as possible.

“Captain America at your service, ma’m” he said with a smirk and you chuckled.

“Congratulations baby” he said after pecking your lips “You deserved this” he smiled at you and you forced a smile on your lips, memories coming back.

Of course you weren’t really mad at him for not coming to congratulate you for getting your degree in medicine and succeeding to become a doctor. He was there when you were given the degree and you could see him at the far corner of the room on his own, clapping loudly, a huge smile on his face. He seemed so proud and happy and it made you smile even more widely. He stood away from the crowd that was there for all the students and of course he was wearing a hoody and black sunglasses in order not to be recognized and you didn’t mind. You couldn’t be more happy to see him there for you and knowing that he had canceled shooting any scenes just to come to you.

You couldn’t help but feel sad, though, when, as your parents and other family members were congratulating you, Dean didn’t come close. And he didn’t come close in order to not be recognized. It was true that even though you had been dating for about a year none of your close family members or friends knew about who was actually your boyfriend. And neither did Dean’s fans. Nobody for that matter. You didn’t know how you two had actually managed to keep it a secret for this long, not only from your close family and friends (both yours and Dean’s) but The Media too. Nobody knew and it seemed that nobody would ever know.

It hurt you, you were not going to lie about that. Neither were you going to ask Dean why he had not told anybody nor force him to do so. You didn’t dare to. Maybe it was the answer you would get that scared you. Or maybe it was that deep down you felt as if all of this did not matter to him, it wasn’t as important to him as it was to you, that scared you. You had thought about it may times and wondered if the 13 years age gap you and him had was the reason why. Other times you thought that maybe… maybe he was ashamed of you? Maybe he actually did not want people to know that he, Dean Winchester, great and famous movie actor was with someone… someone like you.

Or maybe… maybe he didn’t think this would last long. That there was no point in bothering to tell anyone because this would be over soon, just like most relationships he had had in the past. Maybe-

“(Y/n)?” Dean’s voice broke your trail of thoughts. You had not even realized how you had zoned out.

“Yeah?” you asked blinking a few times.

“Are you ok?” he asked frowning, getting up from you and seating normally.

“Uh? Yeah, yeah Dean. I’m fine” you faked a smile that did not seem to convince him at all.

“Acting is my job (Y/n). Don’t think you can fool me so easily with fake smiles, ok? Now tell me, what’s wrong?” he asked frowning more.

“Nothing is wrong, Dean” you said once again.

“(Y/n)-” he went to protest but you cut him off.

“No, Dean, I told you. Everything is alright. There is no need for you to bother, ok?” you said a little bit more harshly than you intended “I’m tired. I will go take a shower” you murmured and and before Dean could respond, you got up and made your way upstairs to your room.

Dean watched you get up abruptly and get out of the room. He let out a sigh and then pursed his lips. He looked down at his hands and then clenched his fists. He was mad. Not mad at you. No, that could never happen. He was mad at himself. Mad at himself for being a coward. That was the only word that came in his mind whenever he thought about this situation. Because that was the only word that he could describe himself with. Other than dick, asshole, jackass- Ok there were more than one words that he could describe himself with.

But it was true nonetheless.

He knew why, although you denied it, you were so down. He did know that you were hurt… because of him. And it did make his heart ache at the thought of it. You meant a lot to him. More than he could ever admit. More than he could ever think of. And the thought of him being the reason why you were hurt made him all the more angry with himself. Angry for not finding the guts to finally say it out loud. To finally say to everybody that you and him were together. He wanted more than anything to do so because he knew that what you and him had was more than just a temporary relationship.

You were like no other girl he had ever met or been with. Ever since he met you, you were so… genuine. You not only treated him like a real person but also were honest and real with him. You didn’t pretend for him in order to get him to like you. You were just… you. And that got Dean to fall head over heels in love with you from the first moments of knowing you. But Dean…

Dean was scared. He was scared of what people were going to say. Not that it mattered so much, anyway. He had never during his life and career cared about what others thought of him but he was scared of what the nasty comments were going to do to you. He knew that people were going to criticize him for dating someone 13 years younger than him and he didn’t want to go through this. But most important of all, he didn’t want you to go through this.

He didn’t want you to get hurt, he was doing this to protect you but- maybe doing this actually did hurt you more than protect you?

He let out another sigh, shaking his head; not knowing what to do.

Silence followed until a beeping sound was heard and Dean looked at the coffee table to see he had a new message on his phone. It wasn’t important, one of his manager that told him he had a new movie for him; Dean didn’t care about any movies now - only you. He closed the message but accidentally pressed another app. He was about to close the instagram page when an idea popped in his mind and his eyes widened.

“That’s it” he murmured.

~~~

You sighed exiting the bathroom. A towel wrapped around your body, your hair completely wet; droplets falling on the floor. Your lips were pursed as you searched through your clothes, trying to find something to wear and thinking about Dean. You felt bad for talking to him that way, he wasn’t the one to blame - sort of - but he was partly innocent anyway. Maybe he hadn’t thought about it at all. Maybe he didn’t think of it the way you did. Maybe it was your own insecurities that made you over-think things and-

A beep was heard in the silence of the room, breaking your thoughts for a split second, but you decided to ignore it. That and the second beeping sound. And the third. And the fourth. And the fifth. And the sixth. And the-

“What the hell is going on?!” you suddenly stopped searching for clothes and grabbed your phone which had not stopped for a split second to beep.

You unlocked it to see more and more notifications coming from your instagram.

“Damn what is going on?!” you asked exasperated as more and more notifications came in.

You opened the picture that someone had tagged you to - you didn’t pay attention to whom it was - and everybody would not stop hearting and commenting. You opened the photo only for your eyes to widen at the sight in front of you.

“What the…” you breathed out.

In front of your eyes was a picture of you taking your degree, a wide smile plastered on your face. It was a photo posted by…

“Dean?” you breathed out in disbelief.

“Yeah?” a voice asked behind you and you turned to look at Dean not far away from you.

“You…?” you only said, unable to form any more words.

“Yeah?” he asked with a smirk.

You swallowed the lump in your throat “You uploaded a photo… of me?” you asked in disbelief.

“Yeah” he shrugged “But I don’t think you read the description” he smiled and you frowned.

You swallowed thickly and slowly averted your eyes from him to your phone screen.

'You know you deserved it @(Y/i/n)! Making me the proudest man alive, baby. Damn I can’t wait to get sick to have you take care of me doc! #hottest doc ever #who needs a nurse #when they can have this #lov u #die happy #yes she’s mine #dating this beauty #hellyes!’

Your eyes widened upon you read the whole of it. Your head snapped to Dean’s direction, your mouth hanging open “Did you just…?” you managed to say, a smile forming on your lips when you saw him smile widely.

“Yeah, yeah I uh- I just figured since you- you seemed a little bit down, I-” he started, stuttering a little bit; scratching the back of his neck nervously, but you cut him off by closing the distance between you; you crashed your lips to his.

“Damn I love you. So so much” you breathed out with a huge smile. You didn’t say those three words very often with Dean but seeing him actually admit it in public made your heart swell.

“I love you too (Y/n). Never doubt about it” he said kissing you softly.

“I won’t. I promise I won’t” you whispered, kissing him in the lips.

“Now, how about you take care of me doc?” he wiggled his eyebrows, saying after you both pulled away.

“Only if you take care of me, Cap” you winked at him and you had never seen Dean nod so eagerly.

Damn, you loved Instagram~!

minja is definitely burnt out. she’s had some bad experiences - a lot of bars don’t welcome people like her, and she guesses that she can’t blame them. but it definitely makes her life that much harder. it’s already quite difficult to try and get by on the money that she’s making, especially considering that she has to pay for everything herself, and she has no one to rely on but herself. finding work will make or break her. 

but this particular club has always been welcoming, and she’s grateful for it. she’s sat at the bar, chatting up the owner. roulette is someone that she’s always enjoyed talking to - especially when she has bad nights where she just can’t seem to get any clients. ‘can i just get a beer?’ she asks, feeling quite dejected. all she needs is one client for the night, then she can go home.

It was estimated that gd makes about 790 million won a year but what is that to usd cause I converted it and it didn't make sense to me cause I'm uneducated.

It’s roughly ~700,000 USD. This number. though, is just the money that he gets from royalties (the money he earns for writing/producing songs and getting credited for it).

We don’t know his total net income, but we can assume he’s rich considering that BIGBANG has made nearly 30 million USD last year, not to mention that GD has bought a pension for his parents valued at 500-600 million won (~450,000-540,000 USD), owns a Lamborghini (~$400,000 USD), has a Hyundai black card (otherwise known as “The Black” and only 2,000 has been invited to get one), and is currently living in Galleria Foret, the most expensive apartment complex in Korea (average listing prices are about 3-4 billion won or ~2.7 million to 3.6 million USD).
