(Because oh my god, it’s so hard, and everyone’s all like stop feeling so bad about yourself and it’s like how???)
Be naked. A lot. Sleep naked. Have sex naked. Eat cereal naked. (Or naked and wrapped in a sheet. Favorite thing.)
Follow beautiful, confident, (un-photoshopped) body-positive babes on the Internet. Unfollow anything that makes you feel insecure. Exposure is key. You’re not going to get it if you don’t seek it out, because the media sucks and wants us to feel like shit about ourselves so they can take our money. (Some hashtags to follow: #effyourbeautystandards #bootyrevolution #blackisbeautiful #transisbeautiful #wheelchairlife #fatkini #fatshion)
Lingerie. Next best thing to being naked.
Self care, babe. Different for everyone. (Me? Showers, books, shaving my legs, nature walks, dark lipstick, good playlists, clean rooms, candles, sexy time.)
Get ready in your underwear. Boobs = happiness.
Self portraits. Be pro-selfie. Take a million selfies. Take sexy selfies. Take no makeup selfies. Take bad angle silly selfies. Take artsy tripod selfies. Take everything-is-on-point selfies. You’re gorgeous; document your gorgeousness. You don’t even need to post them.
Stop with the self deprecationnnnn. Pleeeeaseeee. It’s hard to control your thoughts love, I know, but you can control what you say. NEVER insult yourself out loud. Dare I say compliment yourself out loud? (And if you can, do your best to try to body-positive-ify your thoughts too.)
Sex (including solo sexy time), wine, and chocolate. In that order.
Share the body love. Compliment your girlfriends. Cultivate a nonjudgemental, supportive, lift-each-other-up “we’re so cute” friend group. Everyone’s insecure. Compliment your besties. And strangers, too. Be that person that makes everyone feel good about themselves when they’re around.
Good luck gorgeous. It’s a battle. We gotta unlearn all this societal bullshit.
real talk: I’m thankfull for a good group of friends who’ve helped me more then you can know. have been homeless a few times and kicked out in the middle of the night even more. I’ve been able to get out of jams bc of my looks, and I’m not a shallowe person but I’m thankful for that too. i don’t know where I’d be otherwise
snapchat headcanons for the 104th crew as well as Erwin, Levi, and Hange??
(Quick Note: We only do the 104th kids here. I’ll answer the three vets for this one question, but would prefer that we stick to the kids in the future unless they’re simpler asks like this.)
Eren: Absolutely hilarious. He takes the funniest snaps of his friends, and of himself doing ridiculous things. He posts a decent amount of selfies, and likes to use the app to communicate with his friends. He’s good about maintaing streaks, and also really likes to take snaps of animals.
Mikasa: Selfie queen. She takes the best pictures all the time. Usually the one who films her friends saying stupid things, and posts them only with their permission. Looks good in every filter. Her story is filled with her friends and pretty nature things.
Armin: Checks Snapchat all the time, but rarely uses it himself (as in, his story is usually empty.) He uses it to communicate all the time. His snaps are often of inanimate objects, rarely his face, unless he’s replying to a close friend. He does his best to never send any picture that could be used against him. Loves the group chat feature, and does take every opportunity to troll a chat when its lit.
Hello, I'm really sorry to bug you, but I was wondering if you know where I can find a certain video? It's a BTS performance from Japan, I think, of 뱁새, and Jimin has blonde hair in it? I think it was from some Epilogue version, but I can't find it anywhere... Sorry, that's not a very good description!!
I’m sorry, this is a bit too vague to answer. There are a lot of performances in which Jimin has blonde hair at the Japanese Epilogue concerts…If you can give a more specific description me or other users might be able to help.
Hey, I just wanted to say that I love your blog, thank you for your amazing work!
Really wanted to say thank you for constantly updating us with photos and everything! 🙆❤️ I can imagine it must take a lot of time and effort so it’s really appreciated! Plus I always read your tags and you guys are so cute ☺️
Thanks so much~ We always try our best to provide you guys with this content! I’m not as crazy with my tags as Kristi, Bem, and Eunice, but glad you enjoy it~
Hiiiiii:) I was curious, are BTS allowed to take pictures (selfie etc.) with fans or not? I don’t see photos at all, just a few with Kookie, and that got me wondering, if Big Hit lets them, since another group, Monsta X, isn’t allowed to unfortunately, due to Starship Entertainment’s rules (I’m not entirely sure about it but)… And I read someone talking about Kookie getting in trouble after taking selfies with fans. Thanks in advance:)
Korean celebrities (at least K-pop idols) usually aren’t allowed to take pictures outside of their schedules. The only day that went against this was when Jungkook was in Hongdae during a free day (160306). Big Hit doesn’t allow him to take pics, but for some reason he did it anyway. I’m not sure if he got in trouble though. Rule of thumb is that if you recognize BTS, don’t bother them.
Hello :) do you happen to have or know someone scanned the BTS puma winter story photos? tried looking on your blog but didn’t find anything. the photos in google images are small and not clear. thank you
Scans? I only uploaded what was uploaded by PUMA officially. You can check these in the #puma tag, but you would have to do a bit of searching, sorry…
are the boys gonna perform at dmc this year?
Yes they are performing at the Korean Music Wave Festival on September 23rd at 7PM KST. We will announce more details about streams and such when it is available.
How are you able to study in Korea? By yourself? What made you want to(besides bts)?
To be honest, BTS isn’t what motivated me to study in Korea at all…I’ve been into Korean music for nearly nine years (wow wtf) and once I got into the music, I got into the culture, the people, the history, etc. Since I am Japanese, I figured I would have more chances to go abroad to Japan rather than Korea. I was planning to do a half a year in each country but due to university issues, I chose a year in Korea instead. Also, I really want to improve my Korean language skills. While I can understand Korean to a certain extent, I have no formal education in Korean. I really want to learn Korean properly in a classroom setting and immerse myself in the language as I live in the country for a year. As for how I am able to study in Korea, I am in an exchange program with my school and will be studying at Yonsei University. As my tuition at Yonsei will be much cheaper than my university tuition, there was nothing to lose by studying abroad for the year~ Since this program is through my school, I can’t really help those who are looking to find programs to study abroad…sorry! - Kylie
BONES for real. Doctor is grumpy in the morning (and maybe hungover) without his coffee. Spock doesn’t drink coffee (not even Vulcan Mocha) but he drinks tea and they’d squabble over whether hot tea is better than iced and why coffee is bad for you/stunts your growth (which would infuriate Bones) while tea is good for you “without a clotting amount of sucrose” (more angry Bones). Spock tries coffee ONCE and underestimates how powerful it is (Bones might have added espresso) which causes him to spend alpha shift trying to do everyone’s jobs at once. It annoys the crap out of most of the crew but Kirk thinks it’s the best thing ever. He tries to convince Bones to do the same thing with liquor.
Brings up adopting a pet
Spock. He’s such an animal lover. Brings up getting a Sehlat and Bones teases him about wanting a teddy bear until he *sees* the h u g e freaking things (as Spock goes up to one and calmly pets it) and is a little impressed that baby Spock managed one. Though he’d never say that of course. Eventually they decide that Starfleet takes up too much of their time to properly care for a pet while they’re in it. When they retire they go to Vulcan (Bones can take the heat, he’s from the south) with a sehlat named Tiberius that Bones “spoils rotten” according to Spock, and a sort of weird bioengineered dog named Hank that looks like a bloodhound but was built for the Vulcan atmosphere. (Spock voices some doubt to this fact given that Hank seems to always be sleeping. Bones tells him Hank’s resting up incase something good happens.)
Kills the bugs
Bones. He grew up in the SOUTH for godsake. Spock would merely shoo them away or trap them then release them outside. (There are no bugs in space so this is either on missions or back home) Though Spock actually likes bugs and will catch them for fun/to examine. Bones does not like this especially since Spock will cavalierly walk up to him and hold out his hands only to reveal a huge/possibly alien/hairy bug thing and start lecturing Bones on what it is while Bones tries to remember what a normal heartrate feels like.
Cooks the meals
Bones. Good ol’ Georgian cooking (though he’s a bit of a bachelor in the sense that he only cooks when he HAS to and would rather have someone else cook it. He doesn’t mind synthesized food but he swears he can taste the difference despite Spock informing him there’s no molecular difference.) Spock isn’t very enthusiastic about Bone’s cooking because he’s Vulcan and they think saltines are too flavorful but Bones CAN NOT tolerate Vulcan food so if someone’s cooking it’s him.
Starts getting into holidays way before they should
They’re both grumpy when it comes to holidays but down to the wire Bones probably celebrates more than Spock. He at least had traditions around Christmas and Halloween and the like. Spock wasn’t raised to celebrate earth holidays but might participate. (If Bones forces him) Spock observes Vulcan holidays (though there aren’t very many) with the exact amount of enthusiasm as he was taught to display. He’s not very interested in trying to get Bones to learn the disciplines of Surak, though after they get into a fight (debate?) over Bones’ disrespect of Vulcans/their culture, the doctor tries to learn a little just to be supportive. (He still cannot perform the ta'al though. Spock thinks it’s funny but he would never say.)
Initiates the couple selfies
Kirk. HEAR ME OUT! Spock thinks photographs should be used solely for documenting important things/research/etc and Bones is a Grumpy Old Guy™ who definitely complains about the younger generation (Kirk) taking so many goddamn selfies. So they would have approximately 3 photos of the two of them and they’d likely all be official group photos from Starfleet events. But Kirk ships them HARD (his two best friends dating is hilariously cute to him) and would, as a result, sneak photos of them whenever possible. Them eating in the mess hall, playing chess, talking on the bridge, and ONCE a photo of them exchanging a brief Vulcan kiss before a particularly dangerous mission. (I still think that Spock sticking his tongue down Uhura’s throat was OOC as hell. Inappropriate and emotional not to mention breaking regulations and revealing their secret relationship. He wouldn’t even break regulations when it meant he was gonna DIE. But I digress.) Spock eventually catches on and his ears will flush green if he sees Kirk photographing them (which only makes the photos cuter according to the captain) but Bones doesn’t catch on until Kirk forgets to turn off the flash one time and tries to take a picture of Bones feeding Spock a piece of alien cuisine on a mission. The flash goes off and everyone goes dead silent and Bones just sloooowly turns to Kirk and there’s a pause before Kirk stands up and HAULS ASS OUT OF THERE screaming “BEAM ME UP!!!” into his communicator as Spock attempts to restrain a near-rabid-Bones.
Kirk escapes alive, though his next few doctors appointments include a lot of hypos.
Forgets the birthdays and anniversaries
On the one hand, Spock is Vulcan and probably doesn’t care. On the other, his memory is near perfect. Bones doesn’t seem the type to care about anniversaries much unless it’s a BIG one (marriage) but he’ll definitely get Spock birthday presents (either gag gifts he presents with an overly cheerful air or serious ones he hucks at Spock grumblingly and leaves before the Vulcan can react). Spock will either ask Bones what he wants to have happen for his birthday or seek Kirk’s assistance (which might not end well) in throwing a party/giving him presents.
Always ends up with too much junk food after grocery shopping
Bones but barely. He’s a doctor and Spock is a Vulcan so neither would be overly into junkfood (Kirk coughcough) but Bones does enjoy his southern delights (peach pie, apple fritters, liquor, etc) while Spock’s idea of indulgence is adding redspice to his plomeek soup.
Nicknames the other
BONES are you KIDDING ME?! He’s constantly giving his hobgoblin green blooded pointy eared robot alien boyfriend nicknames. He finds out which ones Spock is too sensitive about and doesn’t use them but Spock grows to understand the doctor means them affectionately. (Well. Not affectionate when they first met, but… over time) Spock retaliates ONCE and it nearly scars Bones for life. He had just made some crack about how dating Spock was the same as standing next to a wall and calling it “darling” and Spock (in front of the entire bridge and without turning away from his screen) said “That statement is illogical given that walls cannot hear nor speak. I am able to do both along with several other amorous activities you do not seem to mind, *darling*.”
Kirk passed out from laughing so hard and Bones didn’t revisit the bridge for a solid week.
Okay so, first and foremost: lovely blog, awesome job keep it up. Secondly, how do you think Spock would react to the obsession with selfies? Like would he be like Pavel please cease with this illogical attempt at taking a group 'selfie' you are too short or be like jim what are you doing posing for a self portrait or 'selfie' with that illogical expression
first: thank you so much, you’re lovely, I love you. Second, Spock would probably be that person who is ALWAYS selfie-ready. He pretends to protest, but with all his practice with aesthetic that Vulcan knows his angles. Everyone is confused as to how he always looks the best in group selfies even though he’s the one who didn’t want to do it in the first place. It becomes a challenge to try and get an ugly selfie with Spock.
Lockwood & Co. selfie… except not really a selfie. Just Lockwood being his ridiculously charming self and managed to convinced a paparazzi to took a group photo of them on the Fittes party.
Years later, the said paparazzi was amused on how much money he got from this single, unplanned photograph as it made its way for the best-selling biography of London’s most legendary independent agency.
