half caucasian

Well then. Not only was Seokmin born on this day but so has Vernon! Our beloved Hansol Vernon Chwe, our beloved half caucasian half asian idol! My dear fellow ‘98 line!

Ok so, lets get the obvious out of the way. Yes, Vernon is super attractive, insanely so perhaps. is genes have clearly worked in his favour.

Originally posted by sneezes

Clearly, he is extremely handsome, very naughty.

But the thing that impressed me the most with Vernon is how hard he has been trying to improve himself.

So we all know that his first attempt at showing off his rap skills as an individual had been anything but successful.

Indeed, he kinda tried to bite more than he could chew. He tried to be too ‘gangsta’, too ‘hardcore’ before he could develop.

However, instead of closing inside of himself when he failed, instead of throwing a fit, he accepted defeat and decided to learn, to evolve as an artist. Indeed, he continued to grow, rather than blame others.

white privilege is so fucking rampant you guys. white privilege is looking over the heads of literally hundreds of poc people on this site who tried to correct you & pretending like they don’t exist. white privilege is being able to wake up every morning without knowing what poc go through. white privilege is being able to come back & still have people support you when you’ve been offensive as hell while children are literally shot on the street for acting ‘suspicious’. 

white privilege is having the fucking audacity to get on their high horse without any kind of decent ass apology & kissing your own ass while people suck up to you for no reason other then sheer ignorance. white privilege is being able to shut out everyone else & lose every semblance of humbleness, humility, & basic fucking human empathy for those you have overlooked. white privilege is being able to comment on shit you have never fucking lived & still having minimal blowback.  white privilege is being able to use your gender as a defense & holding up poc children as a trophy to deflect the shit you get for being problematic. 

white privilege is being able to pass off with an ‘i’m sorry, but,’ while still ignoring & refusing to name the issue at hand. white privilege is being able to consider yourself as not prejudiced when oppressed people literally tell you you are. white privilege is being able to live without your heart hurting everyday for who you are. white privilege is being blind & oblivious to other people without guilt. white privilege is being able to go on with your life without knowing of poc pain & disregarding it all together.

synopsis: a very frustated reader is failing her korean class while an equally flustered seungcheol is struggling in english o(^▽^)o high school!au

genre: fluff!

word count: 4,088 ٩(•́⌄•́๑)

It was not easy being an exchange student in Korea; you never claimed it was. Whatever possessed you to move from your home country to the world’s peak nation of academic competitiveness you couldn’t remember, but it was too late to turn back. You were the only non-Korean you knew of in the entire school– perhaps every other foreigner had given up– so the standards were never lowered. You were to march to the same drum as all the Korean students, and at times, that drum was far too harsh.

Take Calculus for example. Back home, the finding and properties of derivatives and integrals of functions wasn’t exactly easy, but it was possible. Your teacher was always willing to help individual students and, most importantly, everyone spoke English. But as you sat in the back of your Korean Calculus class (yes, the very back: you showed up to class your first day and the only open desk was a lonely slab of wood beneath a cruel air vent), you might as well have been asleep. The teacher stood behind his podium like an imposing statue, lecturing nonstop, and only said “Any questions?” just before the bell rang each day. Fearful of your next teacher, you scurried out despite being dazed and horribly confused. Each afternoon of yours was spent in that same classroom in tutoring, which arguably still didn’t help.

You promised your calculus teacher you would come, as he was so concerned about your grades that he had made it a requirement or else you would be pulled from the class. “I promise I can do it, I’m just a little behind everyone else, the Korean students, I mean… as you already know,” you sputtered. He chuckled every time.

But what was much more interesting than the droning of your teacher was his student aide: Choi Seungcheol. He sat in the very front during third period each day and paced the aisles between the desks during afternoon tutoring sessions. The faint scent of cotton and traces of cologne followed him past you, and you noticed yourself gripping your pencil a little tighter. “Ms. Y/N, are you still with us?” Your teacher would call, not stopping his chalk or tearing his vision from the board.

“Of course, sir,” you would stutter. Not once did you notice Seungcheol’s amused smirk behind you.

Dedicated trainees or not

I was an SM trainee for a period of time. It was when I was in middle school. They offered Chinese classes at my school and I was taking them. I had been taking them since sixth grade.

It was the summer between seventh and eighth grade. In two months, I would be in eight grade. My parents and two of my friends parents got together and decided to go to China.

My friend, Maddy, was half Chinese and half Caucasian. They wanted her to go connect back to her roots. It was Mia, Maddy, and I, along with our parents going to China.

I was twelve then, Mia and Maddy were thirteen. I was born in December while they were born in the earlier months. I think it was 2009 back then.

We went to China and it was great. It was fun. I loved the culture. Maddy could barely speak Chinese because her father barely spoke it around the house. I wasn’t Chinese. I was Vietnamese. Mia was from Kazakhstan.

I know, that’s not really a place where SM picks its trainees. But she had very nice features. She was tall already. 5'6". Taller than me, who was 5'4". Maddy was only 5'1". Mia also had brown hair and light brown eyes. I’ll have to admit, she was good looking and Kpop companies like the good looking ones.

We were in China, hanging out in a shop. Our parents were also with us. An SM scout was walking around the streets looking for new recruits. He spotted us in the shop and went in. He gave us his card and told us about the audition.

Our parents let us go to the audition. What’s the worse that can happen?

Mia was good at singing. She got all the solos when we were in school choir. She had chestnut brown hair. Light brown eyes. Tall. Good looking. SM let her in despite her heritage.

Maddy was good at singing too. Not as good as Mia, but still good. She was half Caucasian which gave her lighter features. Chocolate brown hair and light brown eyes. But SM was hesitant about her tan skin. She was just born tan.

But they let her in. She showed promise. Kai from Exo was tan too. She had full lips like him and a nice face.

I was more of a dancer and rapper. I could sing okay but I’d rather rap and dance. SM let me in. I spoke fluent English, Vietnamese, and was pretty good at Chinese. They believed that I could pick Korean up pretty easily. I also had very pale skin. SM liked that.

So then started out trainee years.

Mia was bullied. Despite her looks and singing talents, she was still bullied. There was never a trainee from Kazakhstan before. The Korean trainees bullied her for not being able to speak Korean.

Maddy wasn’t bullied. She spoke a little Chinese. She was Chinese. The Korean trainees didn’t bother her much.

They bothered me. They bullied me like they did with the other Viet trainees. They even did it with the Thai trainees. SM had never debuted a Viet or Thai trainee before. They liked to rub it in our faces.

Training was intense. We were rated on a scale of 1 to 6. 1 being terrible and 6 being expert.

Mia: Singing- 3 Dancing- 2 Rapping- 1 English- 6 Korean- 1

Maddy: Singing- 2 Dancing- 2 Rapping- 1 English- 6 Chinese- 2 Korean- 1

Me: Singing- 1 Dancing- 3 Rapping- 3 English- 6 Vietnamese- 6 Chinese- 3 Korean- 1

We trained for three years until there was a rumor that went around about a new boy band called Exo. The Korean bullies were excited because they thought it could’ve been them.

The look on Mia’s face was priceless when tears started to well up in their eyes when the twelve members were announced.

Honestly, some of us were jealous. Tao and Baekhyun only trained for a year until they debuted. It wasn’t fair to the others who had trained much longer.

Baekhyun was good at singing and he was hard working. He practiced his dancing as often as he could. I could understand why he was chosen, but why not one of the more experienced trainees?

Tao begged the manager to let him train for a few more years since he hadn’t grasped the Korean language yet. The manager ignored his pleas.

Whe clearly weren’t going to debut anytime soon and we needed to go to college so Mia, Maddy, and I left SM once out contracts for seven years ended. I was 19 and Mia and Maddy were 20.

That was seven years of our lives wasted. On intense training. Unhealthy diets.

Our scores were exceptional in the beginning of 2016. And they still didn’t let us debut.

Mia: Singing- 6 Dancing- 5 Rapping- 3 (she wasn’t a rapper) English- 6 Chinese- 4 Korean- 6

Maddy: Singing- 5 Dancing- 5 Rapping- 2 (she was to debut as a singer/dancer) English- 6 Chinese- 6 Korean- 6

Me: Singing- 3 Dancing- 6 Rapping- 5 English- 6 Chinese- 6 Korean 6 Vietnamese- 6

We were good at dancing. Good singers. A good rapper. And multiple languages that we could speak. And we still didn’t debut.

Old ex-trainees say that only the most dedicated trainees debut. That’s not true.

Tao begged for more time being a trainee. But it wasn’t up to him. Whether or not the trainee debuts is up to SM.

Mia, Maddy, and I dedicated seven years to being trainees. Mia got sick and hurt her throat after singing too much. Maddy got bone problems from SM wanting her to learn how to play piano and guitar. She practiced too often and her bones began to get problems.

I practiced dancing so much that I fell to my knees. During practice, I got a nosebleed. Now I have health issues.

The most dedicated trainees don’t always get to debut. It’s only up to SM.

TRAUMA - Lyrics + Meanings/Theories

I’m back. Apparently I cannot be stopped.

I made this post yesterday about the Trauma MV and its Symbolism. I’ve had the time to process the song now so I’m gonna break down the lyrics here. This post is mostly going to be for my personal interest and knowledge, but by all means, everyone is open to reading it and I’d love to hear what other Carats think.

Once again, these are my opinions. This is my translation of the song, based on my (somewhat mediocre) Korean skills, so there might be mistakes. I’ll edit this post in the future if this happens. 

To start off, let me put it out there that although I’m complete and utter Hoshi trash, HipHop Unit is my favourite unit. I find their lyrics to be the most raw and real, and they have this really unique sound plus the killer visuals are a sweet little bonus

I’ll go by each member and their verse and then talk about Mingyu last. Long post ahead beware

Vernon

Trauma got me baby
I dropped out when I was in the 8th grade, basically had no friends
Boxed in boxed in my lonely world
Stuck in my fantasy like dreaming it to be real life
I waited without thoughts but now I realize
I’m just going to be alone like this, I don’t know anything except for this
So I plug in my earphones, increase the volume
I don’t wanna be alone
I don’t want to forget Imma sing this song is anybody listening

Alright, pretty self-explanatory verse. I agree with other theories that each member is talking about his trauma/greatest fear. Hansol dug up some shit from his past here, dropping out of school to become an idol is not an easy feat. Being half-Caucasian, he used to receive hate and bullying from his peers, and maybe this is what he’s alluding to when he says he had no friends. 

Then he talks about being in his own little world, with his headphones plugged in. This was a running gag on OFD Japan, where Vernon was always spaced out, and Seungkwan tells him in the end that if he actually unplugged his headphones and listened, that he wouldn’t be the last member to always find out stuff. But Vernon is telling us here that there’s a reason he always has headphones in? It’s his escape? This dream world that he’s created. He’s rapping “I don’t want to be alone, is anybody listening” while surrounded by fans in a boxed room. Pretty clear imagery here: Despite all the fans around him, he feels alone and distant and like he has no friends. 

S.Coups

I’ll include all his verses here (he repeats one twice and then there’s one at the end)

I barely spat out my breath, it’s like I’m forgetting how to do it
Missing you is the hardest thing for me
Now the thoughts barely come, this light that is given to me
Unlike the stage where I am in my mind, is only one 1 pyeong 
[~3 metres]”(this is repeated twice, after Vernon’s part and then after Wonwoo’s)

“Yeah I’m singing singing, even when the sound of music decreases
Said I want to sing, yeah
Anybody will do, just get me out of here, or else you come in
.” (this is right before the final chorus)”

Sigh, Cheol. 

He’s the only one who mentions somebody else in his verse. All other members are talking about themselves. This, coupled with the bed setting in the MV, can symbolize maybe an intimate relationship - either the loss of a lover or a friend?

Alternatively, his trauma can be losing those close to him? His lyrics are vague. “The light that is given to me, unlike the stage in my mind, is only 3 metres”. My heart breaks a little here. Is he saying that he doesn’t feel appreciated enough? That not enough light is shed on him? He is sitting in the darkness alone in one of the shots, so it makes sense. Cheol is a surprisingly underrated member. He’s a fantastic rapper, lyricist, and dancer but never quite gets to stand out (coming up behind to composer Jihoon and choreographer Hoshi). His job, as overall leader, is to monitor from the background, to show off SVT as a group, instead of standing out himself. Personally, (and not because im biased hush) he’s my favourite rapper in the unit, I love his style, and I wish he’d get the spotlight more often to showcase just how good he really is.

I don’t really have any theories for his last verse. He continues to sing even when the music dies down, indicating that he works relentlessly without break (the bed can also symbolize sleep! aka taking rest and we all know Cheol is against resting smh). The last line “Anybody will do, just get me out of here or you come in” can indicate that he is alone in his burden and wants someone to rely on idk. 

[EDIT] After basically having this song on repeat for the past 2 weeks or so, I think what Seungcheol was alluding to was his delayed debut. “Said I want to sing”, “Anybody will do, just get me out of here” probably means that he’s talking about his time spent locked away in the Pledis basement, never knowing when or if he’d be able to make it in the industry. I just want to hug him. 

Wonwoo

HERE COME THE WATERWORKS. JEON WONWOO YOU ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL MAN, LET ME HUG YOU AND KEEP YOU WARM

Brr brr
Unforgettable things about my accustomed immaturity
The trauma that stemmed from my inner doubts
What is my reason for existing?
Even though I regret it, it bothers me like a loach
I’m going to sing, no I’m going to lock away my trauma even more yeah
The pit that I dug myself is getting even deeper
Yeah, deeper, deeper, and I can’t even find it myself
Even I don’t know the end of this trauma, I need a hand to hold

He is most certainly talking about his SNSD ‘scandal’ – his unforgettable memory of his immaturity. He regrets it, but it continues to eat at him so much that he questions himself daily. He talks about how he sings to lock away his feelings, but that just means he’s digging himself a hole that keeps getting deeper and he doesn’t know how to get out. 

Wonwoo’s trauma is mental, unlike the rest, its all in his head. But sometimes, the mind can be the hardest to run away from. 

Mingyu

“I’m in trauma it’s got me sick*
Stuck in trauma I’m just going to sing
Blah blah blah blah why can’t I forget?
That’s my trauma my trauma yeah
Now it’s got me sick, sick, sick*
Stuck in trauma I’m going to sing
That’s my trauma my trauma yeah

*Idk if it’s sick or sing we will have to wait and see

He literally says his trauma is that he cannot forget. Forget what? The Blah Blah Blah can represent noise inside his head that he can’t shut out, it can represent the hate he received when he debuted, it can represent things he reads about himself on news etc. 

Mingyu’s was the most general, obviously considering it was the chorus. I think his trauma was shown more clearly via imagery instead of lyrics. The room he was in was a mess (and we all know Mingyu is clean and likes to be organized) and it can mean his cluttered thoughts, as well as the high expectations laid out on him 


Alright, I’m done. This song is a masterpiece and I’m doing this post so that hopefully some people read it and appreciate the lyrics as well. The MV is a piece of art, no doubt, but Trauma goes deeper than that.

These boys willingly shared their feelings with us, something not a lot of idols do. This is raw, this is real. This shows that not everything is always rainbows and unicorns and that they are human too. I have never related to an idol more in my life than I have to SVT’s HipHop Unit, not just with Trauma, but with Can’t See The End, with Lean on Me, with If I. SVT in general has that effect (Still Lonely is another perfect example)

Maybe it’s just me, but i feel a burden. They’ve let us see how they really feel, and its our job as Carats to give back. They fully trust us, enough to tell us their personal fears and stories. I’m honoured to be a part of this fandom, this family, and to be trusted with something that comes from a really personal space. They are willing to show us their weaknesses and seriously, all we have to do is respect their space, their talent, and not abuse the trust that they have placed in our hands. 

I can’t wait for the other Unit MVs, and the album. Seventeen never fail to astound me with every new release.

TL;DR: Please appreciate my children, if you haven’t listened to SVT yet what are you doing with your life seriously.

you're ok with reggie being whitewashed in season 2?

Ross Butler’s dad is Dutch. Whitest of the white. He’s mixed race. Just like Charles Melton, who’s actually half Korean, half Cherokee + Caucasian. Yeah. As in less white. But more importantly than all of that ancestry.com bullshit, this is Charles Melton:

Does that really look like white-washing to you? But actually? Dig deep for this one, tumblr.

There are so many actual things to get mad about in this world, y’all - find them.

If Seventeen must do a drama/anime parody, it should be Ouran HS’ Host Club

In response to @cindersglamour numerous amount of anon’s.

Cinder. Is. half-Asian. She’s not white. So stop white-washing her.

SHE IS ASIAN.

What don’t you all get? I really love it how people catch the “she was from Europe” part but not the “she was from Luna and Luna has no specific race and/or ethnicity to it” part. Or the “just because she’s from Europe, doesn’t automatically make her European/white” part. Especially in the future where most people would be migrating like crazy regardless of their ethnicity or race. Think about it really. If she were to hide in New Beijing, wouldn’t she have to idk BLEND IN? Maybe I’m crazy or Michelle Benoit & Logan Tanner are crazy, but she would have been Asian looking to fit in a place like New Bejing where there’s mostly ASIAN PEOPLE. And where she was adopted by an ASIAN COUPLE. With ASIAN KIDS.

Think about it this way: if she was white, why in the living world would she have a tan? Um… I’m pretty sure she can’t afford to get a tan every couple of weeks (however many times white people get a tan). It clearly specifies on Marissa Meyer’s website that she has “tan skin, even more tan skin from walking everywhere.” Most if not all white people cant get a tan from walking everywhere. THEY GET SUNBURNED.

I swear, I feel as if most of you all are in-denial and not “genuinely oblivious” to the fact that it is stated by the author herself on her website and various times throughout Cinder and the other three books that she is ASIAN. Half-Asian, half-Caucasian, whatever you’d like to call it. But she is not just Caucasian/white.

Have some of you ever thought that this could be offensive to ASIAN people who hardly ever get represented? The one time they do in a bomb as fudgecake series like the Lunar Chronicles, people within the fandom have to ruin it by whitewashing the only poc they’ve got, that WE’VE got? Stop it. It’s disrespectful. We’ve been over this millions of times. Just. Stop.

Hello, my darling!! I’m so excited that you asked because I honestly haven’t gotten a chance to delve into my race headcanons for Symphonia, but since you asked for dark-skinned characters? This gives me the perfect opportunity to draw some of them up!

Zelos, as we’ve seen, is black. Lloyd is mixed-race, being half-black and partially hispanic. Finally, Colette is mixed Indian-Vietnamese! The most interesting part of changing up their races is coming up for good reasons for it. So far, I know the Chosen lines in both worlds are dark-skinned, as are most angels.

The other characters I have solid headcanons for are Kratos (black), Sheena (Japanese), and Genis and Raine (half-Asian, half-Caucasian). So far, I haven’t made up my mind about Regal and Presea.

anonymous asked:

Hansy Prompt: Both Harry and Pansy are Aurors who have just been assigned a drug case. Long hours of stake outs and and little to do but watch the flat across the street for evidence gives them plenty of time to talk.

DISCLAIMER: I swear to God if I get one angry anon saying I’m a racist piece of shit for writing Pansy as pale when, in this fic, she’s half Korean and half Caucasian, I will scream. I wrote her that way because in Korea a recent beauty standard is to be pale, and because of her being, well, h e r, she would want to be updated on the latest trends. So yes, she is pale in this story. Please don’t be mean to me I try to act tough but I will cry.

Anyways, OH MY GOD THIS TOOK SO LONG TO WRITE I AM SORRY! It’s longer than normal so I hope you like it!


“Stop hogging my side of the alley!” Harry whispered intensely as he glared across at his new partner, Pansy Parkinson.

Her hair, short like her, was a messy black bob that contrasted against the paleness of her skin and matched the color of her eyeliner. They’d been sent on a mission to watch the headquarters of one of the most elusive drug lords in the country, yet she still wore an inappropriate pair of heeled boots and so much cakeup, sorry, makeup, that Harry wondered if she even had a face. Because what does she care about protocol? So what if she’s seen by an extremely dangerous member of the drug cartel? As long as she looks pretty in her casket, he didn’t think she cared. Oh, wait. He knew she didn’t care.


“Listen, Potter. Just ‘cause you wanna die lookin’ gross and old with wrinkles, doesn’t mean we all do.” Pansy continued reapplying her wine colored lipstick as she rolled her eyes at his statement. Why the hell would anyone want to look like a raisin with eye-holes on their death bed?

Harry stared in disbelief. “I don’t want to die old. I want to die knowing I’ve lived a full life.”


They’d moved into a dingy London flat across the street from the old “shoe store” aka “Venemum” headquarters.

It was cheap and the grimy carpet had spots that made the apartment smell of cat pee. There weren’t many windows, leaving the living room, kitchen, and bedroom dark at most times of the day. The walls were bare and a dull white; the only furnishings within the flat were those of necessity. A large bed in the bedroom, a single cotton couch and table with equipment in the living room, and food in the kitchen cupboards with a table and two chairs off to the side.

Pansy lay on the floor, whining out of boredom. “Are stakeouts usually this lackluster?”

“No, normally they’re worse than this,” Harry replied with a bit of sarcasm in his voice, eyes rolling as he heard a loud groaning noise from her side of the room. “Stop bitching, you’re the one who got the couch.”

She shot up from her spot on the carpet. He made her so angry. His voice, his face, his hideous fashion sense, and Merlin save her, his fucking cough WAS infuriating. It was all scraggly and soft, and he would always try to be quiet so he would spend ten minutes getting rid of that tickle in his throat. Half the time, she was sure he only did it to annoy her.

“Maybe I wouldn’t be so bitchy if you would’ve bought two beds!” Pansy’s tone became fierce and snappy.

“Maybe I would’ve bought two beds if you didn’t declare the couch yours!” He huffed; fuck, she pissed him off.

Her makeup was perfect, her outfits were, her walk was perfect, the ratio between bitchiness and playful sarcasm was perfect - everything about her was perfect. The way snorted when she laughed too hard at his failures, oblivious to anyone else’s opinion. When she smiled at herself in the mirror, old vanity from their school days peaking through, as usual. Even her name sounded perfect. Pansy Parkinson. Everything she did, was perfection.

And it made him furious.

“Don’t act like you don’t like it! Two nights ago you were practically getting off in your sleep - on my ass! Honestly, never thought Harry “I lost my girlfriend to Neville Longbottom and now I never get laid” Potter would ever try and snag a Parkinson.” Pansy shouted in annoyance and began chipping off the nail polish on her nails.

He jumped up from his spot at the table, knocking a few files off the edge. “You’re such an entitled bitch!”

“Stop acting like it’s not true.” Pansy traced the old carpet with her nails, nonchalant as ever.

“It’s not true! God, you’re the most ignorant person I’ve ever met! Do you think of anyone but yourself? Or is it all about Pansy fucking Parkinson? And do you realize how much of a safety hazard those bloody nails are? We’re on a mission for fuck’s sake! So stop dressing like it’s ladies’ night down at the pub! Merlin, I can’t fucking stand you!” Harry put his hands on his head and paced around the room.

Pansy didn’t flinch as his fist slammed into the wall. She sighed and walked into the bedroom, keeping her composure.


She felt her back hit the wall, sliding into a comfortable sitting position on her bed; correction, their bed. It was a ludicrous idea to consider a Potter and a Parkinson sharing a bed, but there they were. Side by side, as far away from each other as possible, uttering snide remarks and degrading comments.

Harry held a muggle book in one hand, while the other grasped onto a dirty mug of reheated coffee. Moonlight filtered through cheap blinds and Pansy noticed the reflection on his glasses; he looked… peaceful. Normal. Ordinary. It was odd. Harry Potter was suddenly Harry, just Harry. The man he always wanted. The man she unexpectedly stopped ignoring.

He turned his head, raising an eyebrow as she gazed. “Is something interesting?” Harry inquired, quickly letting his eyes wander down to her chest, where the neckline of her shirt exposed the tops of her chest. He saw a light splattering of freckles on her breasts - they were obvious and contrasted with the paleness of her skin, he wasn’t thinking about her in that way.

“Is something interesting about my tits, Potter?” She smirked, not bothering to look up from her wizarding fashion magazine. According to Korean beauty standards, her pale skin is all the rage. Guess she had her mother to thank, and possibly her addiction to reading up on skincare and guides to living wrinkle-free; maybe she’s also a bit paranoid about her freckles as well.

“I-um, no. I just didn’t know you had freckles is all.” Harry stuttered, his cheeks flushing as he swiftly jumped off the bed and walked into the bathroom.

Standing in front of the mirror, he took a good look at himself. Why was he blushing? Why was he staring? Was it a quick glance? It was supposed to be a quick glance? He leaned down and splashed water on his face, deciding separate beds would’ve been a wonderful idea.

He was in the kitchen, preparing a meal for the two of them. A simple white bean soup with grilled chicken on the side. Easy. Harry’d been cooking since he was a child, and it’d become a pastime of his.

Pansy came in from the living room, rubbing her lower back in discomfort. “Fuck, that chair’s broken, I felt wood digging in my back the whole time.”

“Come here.” Harry sighed, putting down the knife he’d used to chop onions with.

She made a face, “Um, why?” Her brows were furrowed and her hands landed on her hips.

He huffed loudly in frustration. “Just come here!”

Pansy shuffled over, dragging her feet along the once white linoleum that was now a dirty beige. Harry turned her body to where she wasn’t facing him and placed his hands on her lower back. He moved in small circles, then moved lower towards her hips. She became rigid as his hands reached the hem of her shirt, and lifted it slightly. His fingertips were hot against Pansy’s cold skin, and she quickly adjusted to the sensation.

This is odd. Harry knew it, but he liked how soft she felt against his calloused hands. He liked the sound of her light breathing and the way she leaned back into him as she calmed down, letting his hands wander farther down than they needed to.

Neither of them had been with anyone in a month. They knew they shouldn’t. That it was wrong. He was Harry Potter, savior of the wizarding world. Conqueror of the Dark Lord. She was the daughter of two well-respected former death eaters that served Voldemort during the war, and even in his death. She was the disowned daughter of two repulsive creatures that called themselves human. How could you leave your own child because of a fucking belief? It pissed him off more than it should have.

So, despite his better judgment, the angel on his shoulder screaming no, he gave in. He let his lips graze her shoulder.

Pansy shivered. Harry Potter placing light kisses on the back of her shoulders and she could feel him turning her forward. And so, against everything she was taught, against her conscience, she let him.

Maybe it was an act of rebellion. To disobey everything she’d been told, to have control for once in her life. Maybe it was because she simply needed a good shag. Merlin knows she hadn’t had one in a good while. Or maybe, it was because she saw him as Harry. A man with old, round glasses that could take a trip to St. Mungo’s and be done with lenses forever. A man that pushed his godson on the swings and read to him every night he could. A man that she’d learned to trust with her secrets.

But who knows? They only cared about the now, never bothering to mention the future.

growlwolfexo  asked:

Hello! I'm new to the fandom and I'm trying to pick a bias (so far I really like DK...) but I was just wondering if you could tell me about the members?? Like is there anything that I should know about them?? And also, does this fandom have a name...? Thank you!! :)

Sure thing! ^^ There’s no official fan club name yet, but sm17e is something fans made up.

S.Coups: He’s the leader and considered the father of the group as he’s the oldest and takes care of all the members well. ie. taking them out and buying them food. He was a trainee for the longest along with Woozi. He’s really hardworking, writing lyrics for their songs etc. and is so hard/strict on himself (and everyone) when it comes to practice. He jokes around a lot and can be an actual cutie. Oh and he has a cute dimple on his cute face.

Jeonghan: His birthday is 1004, so he’s been dubbed as the “angel”. When he first joined, Joshua was the first person to befriend him and he followed Joshua around everywhere. Being the new guy, he was kinda quiet and didn’t talk much.. but he eventually became really playful and adorable!! Believe it or not, he used to have short black hair, which I sort of miss tbh.

Joshua: The “American hyung” as he came from the U.S. Being the 3rd oldest, he’s a mature, kind hearted guy who’s always happy. Though not as hyperactive as the other members, he still has his silly moments. He loves twix/pizza and once made a song about how he dreams about chocolate (audio) (video). During 17tv, he always had his beloved guitar with him. He thinks eating chicken heals hearts.

Jun: Jun was the first original Chinese member to join the group. Before he got accepted into Pledis, he was a child actor in China (video). He knows wushu. He’s very affectionate towards the members and has a weird/hyper side of him that’s showcased on 17tv. He tends to be in his own little world.

Hoshi: His nickname is 10:10 because his eyes look like 10:10 on a clock. Seventeen’s talented choreographer (along with Dino) who choreographed all their songs. He’s loud, hilarious and just a ball of energy. Closest to DK, they have their own “soonseok talk” song thing (video). Total dork.

Wonwoo: Filled with charisma on stage and has a deep voice you wouldn’t expect. He’s not as talkative as other members but still interacts with them a lot. Cute and handsome. Closest to Mingyu to the point where they became the famous meanie couple (back in season 1 of 17tv, mingyu’s named was revealed but wonwoo was “mr beanie”, so their ship name became meanie).

Woozi: Longest trainee with S.Coups. He’s focused and always works really hard. Seventeen’s super talented everything at 19 years old; he dances, sings, raps, plays piano and guitar, composes and produces well, there’s nothing he can’t do. He produced their debut album. He hates aegyo and when fans call him cute, but how can we not?! I mean look at him, so tiny and squishy and cute!!

DK: He was the last person to join the original line up. He’s very goofy and likes to joke around a lot. He has the same birthday as Vernon (17th Februrary). Being one of the main vocals of the group, he works really hard as he doesn’t want to disappoint his members. His eye smile will literally brighten up your day. 

Mingyu: One of the visuals (along with Jeonghan) and the tallest member of the group. His appearance may look good, but personality-wise, he’s a giant dork. He’s left handed. Eats the most out of all the members, he once ate 4 bowls of rice. Closest to Wonwoo. He once scratched his butt on 17tv, also his english skills are the best you will ever see (video).

The8: Minghao, the other Chinese member. He was the last member to join seventeen. He started b-boying as a kid and also knows wushu. Closest to Jun as they’re both Chinese. He’s still struggling with his Korean so he doesn’t really talk. Always happy and is a complete cutie!!

Seungkwan: He came from Jeju-do. The moodmaker of the group who’s always cheerful. The other main vocal of the group (with DK). His high notes are everything. Also enjoys being an MC. Known as sassy diva Boo of seventeen because he pretty much knows all the girl group dances. To the point where S.Coups thinks he should’ve been a girl group member instead. Diva boo is the best quality (video).

Vernon: Half Korean and Caucasian, he moved from New York to Korea when he was 5. He has a little sister named Sofia. His dancing and rapping skills are phenomenal and he can also write lyrics. He used to have braces. During 17tv, he had a habit of biting his nails and picking his nose. His personality is very relaxed and outgoing. Sometimes can be a little weird.

Dino: Seventeen’s maknae. His role model is Michael Jackson (absolutely loves him). His parents are both choreographers, so that’s probably where he gets his passion for dance and amazing skills from. He’s choreographed some of seventeen’s performances with Hoshi and they always turn out so good! Shipped with Vernon as they’re the youngest and pretty close to each other.

Seventeen Members

I feel as time goes there will be new Carats joining the fandom so I thought I’d give a brief rundown on the members and touch on the inner workings of Seventeen

So Seventeen is part of Pledis Entertainment. There are 13 precious babies in the group + 3 Sub-units + 1 big team = 17 (wow such math). They debuted on May 26th 2015. The members are all very active in writing lyrics, producing and choreographing their songs (some even produce and write for other artists like Aliee and Pledis Girls):

So first we have Vocal team. 

Woozi (Lee Jihoon born 1996) is the leader, he also produces and writes majority of seventeen’s songs, he looks really cute but his personality is so different. He is the shortest member (but boy doesn’t care cause all that means is more piggybacks)

Originally posted by seugcheol

Joshua (Hong (Kong) Jisoo), AKA massive dork, born 1995 in LA, the third oldest, plays guitar. “Sunday morning rain is falling”, “SIKE”. He is so handsome it hurts me on a different level.

Originally posted by jishooua

Jeonghan is the one who is so pretty that it makes you want to cry and die, He’s born 1994 and is the second oldest, he looks like an angel but he probably rules hell alongside Woozi. 

Originally posted by mountean

DK/Dokyeom (Lee Seokmin) born 1997 and is the embodiment of sunshine and all things beautiful, he is the main vocal along side Seungkwan. Very loud and usually shouting or singing.

Originally posted by ftwonwoo

Seungkwan is the diva of the group, he’s got an amazing voice, loves his mama (and Vernon) born 1998. MC boo in the house. Aspiring rapper, probably wants to be Vernon.

Originally posted by wonnhao

HIP TO THE HOP UNIT

So S.coups (Choi Seungcheol) is the oldest, ‘95 liner. He was originally meant to be a singer but then became a rapper, one of my fav voices. He’s the main leader and leader of hip hop unit. 

Originally posted by seokmind

Wonwoo (won-wow) born 1996 looks like he would cut you but is so funny and makes really bad puns, he has a really low voice and when he sings I die cause its like heaven is opening. Cinnamon roll.

Originally posted by allurity

Mingyu is the tallest of Seventeen, born 97′. His visual is no joke. Looks like a sophisticated, sexy, manly man but is actually a puppy stuck inside a big human. The only chef in Seventeen. Very clumsy.

Originally posted by gyuhan-17

Vernon (Hansol Vernon Choi) half Caucasian and half Korean, was born in New York but moved to Korea when he was 5 so he identifies as more Korean. Memeking. Loves food, his sister and Drake. Aspiring vocal. Second youngest member coming in at 1998.

Originally posted by hansoltheist

Performance Unit

Hoshi (Kwon Soonyoung) part of the 96′ liners. Performance team leader. Choreographs alot of their dances. On stage he is all hip thrusts and body rolls but off stage he is a hamster. Joins in on bad puns with Wonwoo.

Originally posted by leewooji

Jun (Wen JunHui) my Chinese prince. Also part of the 96 line, he’s the 4th oldest. He is so cute and cares about the other members so much. May seem greasy but has a heart of gold. Wushu skills that slay. Visuals on point. (the one in the denim)

Originally posted by withjunhui

The8 (Xu Minghao) looks like a cutie pie but is actually a savage. Helps Woozi and Jeonghan out slaying the other members. He is also Chinese! Breakdancing skills on point. born 1997. 

Originally posted by wonnhao

Dino (Lee Chan) is the baby of the group born 1999. Loves Michael Jackson. Wants to be seen as a man but the whole of seventeen sees him as a baby. His glow up is insane though. Dance skills on point.

So if you are looking for videos to drag you further into the diamond life

I’ll probably edited this as time goes by, but yep these are my babies. They are so talented and hardworking. They are all so supportive of each other and are going to go far.

Stan talent, Stan Seventeen.

The Importance of Role Models and Being Representative

By Taran Matharu

A year and a half ago, my book, The Novice, went viral on a social reading app called Wattpad, being read over 6.5 million times. I receive dozens of messages from my fans every day. Two questions are asked the most. The first is not unusual: aspiring writers requesting I read and comment on their work. But the other might surprise you. It’s people asking me if I am Indian/Pakistani/Asian.

Happy birthday to my favorite anon, @monidon!!! This is an Eruri piece where they end up adopting the Shiganshina trio. <2500 words


“Did you change your tie again?” Levi asked him.

“Um. No?” But he had. It was a habit he took part in when he was preparing for something that made him especially nervous.

“The kids won’t care, Erwin.”

“I know.”

“That color looks fine,” Levi said and used the tie to pull Erwin down to his level. He pecked a kiss on his mouth. Erwin smiled.

“Thank you, Levi.”

“Let’s go.”

Mom1 headcanons

- Ninten is half-Japanese/Caucasian, Lloyd is German, Ana is Scandinavian, Teddy is Greek, and Pippi is half-Irish/Swedish.

- Lloyd’s really passionate about science and math, like REALLY passionate. Sad thing is, he doesn’t know when to stop talking or how to explain stuff without making it sound very complicated.

- Lloyd is albino, with blue eyes, NOT RED. He has to carry an umbrella around 24/7 every time he goes out, otherwise he gets terrible sunburns.

- Ana’s father’s name is Abel. His twin brother is Cain. They’re pretty close despite, y'know, their names being Abel and Cain.

- Teddy can speak and sing in fluent Japanese. He has a deep, rich, melodious voice that seems like he’s singing whenever he speaks, even though he’s actually not.

- Lloyd frequently keeps his hair messy because he’s Einstein’s #1 fan. He hates having it combed because he thinks the result makes him look like a dweeb child.

- Ana’s father came from a wealthy family, but decided to enter the priesthood.

- Ninten is a mischievous little shit, playing pranks on everyone but his closest friends. He kinda stops doing that after Mom1.

- Ninten and Pippi are total BFFs and they go do shenanigans together, often dragging Lloyd with them. Most of the time it’s “Ninten no!” or “Pippi no!”

- Ninten was once in the school choir.

- Ninten is scared of graveyards after having to rescue Pippi from zombies alone. It’s either he bring a bat or some other kind of weapon with him, or he won’t even go in.

- Pippi’s hair is braided so tightly that they stick straight up. She likes wearing it this way.

- Ninten has asthma that’s triggered by breathing car gas and polluted air. It’s so bad that it’ll incapacitate him unless he has immediate access to his inhaler.

- Mimmie and Minnie share a telepathic link due to being identical twins.

- Pippi’s father died of pneumonia when she was 6. He was brought alive by Giegue as a zombie to kill anyone who entered the cemetery, but when he saw Pippi being attacked by the other zombies, he rescued her instead and was devoured by the zombies.

- Pippi likes eating any foods with bananas in them. Usually banana pancakes and banana pudding cookies.

- Although Giegue’s people age differently than humans, Giegue’s about Ninten’s age when the Mom1 group fight him on Mt. Itoi.

- Teddy’s parents were kidnapped by Giegue while they were driving through Mt. Itoi and turned into Starmen. Teddy found out AFTER he killed them both.

- Teddy’s age is 24, but he looks late-twenties. No one knows when exactly he was born, except he was adopted on January 1, late 196X.

- Teddy secretly has no eyes underneath his sunglasses. There’s only blank spots where his eyes should be. He’s essentially blind. To get by, he uses PSI to “see” by feeling everything around him.

- Ninten’s favorite song is “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin.

- Ninten pranked Teddy once. NEVER AGAIN.

- Ana and Teddy are the most mature and reasonable of the Mom1 group, but sometimes Teddy gets scolded for encouraging Ninten and Pippi’s shenanigans.

- Lloyd was given Ninten’s Franklin Badge sometime during Mom1 to boost his courage. He still wears it as an adult.

- Everyone gets really worried whenever they find Lloyd hiding in trashcans and try to help him break him that habit.

- Teddy sometimes teaches Ninten how to play guitar.

ok so these are REALLY FREAKIN CUTE LOOK AT THEM

I wanna do some drawn replies but since the post is so long I’m gonna put this here and link back when I use any of these

In the meantime know I’ve been thinking about these all day and i can’t wait to get those replies up
