Excerpts from interview with Johan “Shellback” Schuster (from 2015)

His artist name Shellback is fittingly from professor Shellback in the Swedish cartoon Bamse - a logical and technical genius that has a solution for everything. And also a person that sleeps a lot at his workplace and may seem a bit absent. 

A more intelligible way to understand how Johan thinks is to listen to his works. “Shake It Off” with Taylor Swift was, together with Megan Trainor’s “All About That Bass”, the song that dominated the year of pop music in 2014. If you haven’t heard “Shake It Off” a hundred times you are obviously allergic to electricity.


Anyone who thinks there is a formula for pop hit records is a sloppy listener. The songwriters and artists that try to sound like the others on the charts can become successful - for a while - but they soon fall into oblivion. On the contrary, the biggest songs are those that break the norm, the ones that do not follow any rules other than gut feeling.

Shake It Off (billboard #1 for 4 weeks) didn’t sound like any other modern hit song at the time of its release. The song starts with a five second long drum intro - old fashioned acoustic drums - something that is unheard of on commercial radio.

It is Johan playing the drums on Shake It Off. It is also Johan playing guitar, bass, keyboard and shouting in the background.

Songwriting on Shake It Off is credited to Shellback, Max Martin (Johan’s discoverer and mentor) and Taylor herself.

Johan further explains:
-  Shake It off was the next to last song we recorded for the album. The other was actually Blank Space (billboard #1 for 7 weeks). With Taylor one can work very quickly, sometimes we wrote a song a day. When we met 6 months after our first session we felt like there was a type of song missing.

How do you know that?
-  Basically it’s a kind of pleasing frustration. How good everything feels. We’re home, we have everything we need. But, at the same time… a feeling of… something missing. Something that breaks from the other stuff. Something more light-hearted. Pharrell had just released Happy and that song was on our minds. When we worked with Taylor on the last album, which was the first time she didn’t write everything herself, we did We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. It had a different feel than her other songs. It had a more fun and flirty feel to it. We felt that maybe we needed a song like that.

-  Taylor usually has a solid idea when she comes in, but this time we had nothing. It is also uncommon for Martin and me to work that way. We usually come well prepared to a session. So we just sat there. What the hell do we do now? We started playing music to each other to get reference points. Someone that happened to be me said, how about doing something in the same tempo as Hey Ya by Outkast? Something faster and more drum based?

-  In the studio there was a drum kit set up and ready to go. I went in and played something just for fun. We later on used that very recording for the song. What you hear is played live. We really thought of it as a sketch - all right, now we have a tempo to work on - but it often happens that you keep the demo even though it isn’t perfect, since there is more feeling in it. Martin was humming something, Taylor was humming something else. There was a mellotron. I found a brass sound and started playing something really bad on purpose (duh duh duh, exactly what is heard on Shake It Off). Martin instantly said: “That is awesome”. If he had not said that I would have moved on and tried something else. 

-  What we had didn’t really feel like chorus chords, but just as we were packing up for the day Taylor wrote a falling melody that sounded really hooky. We still didn’t know what it was. Is it a chorus? A verse? Me and Martin listened to it in the car on the way home and we were shaking our heads. Is this good? Is it shit? The next day after we had slept on it, which is the best thing you can do, we realized that we had been humming it all morning. The rest of the song wrote itself very naturally. Taylor wrote the lyrics in 30 minutes.

It is an incredibly clever lyric, a comment to her life situation as a tabloid target.
-  She is a hell of a writer, personal and broad at the same time. And the speed of it is unreal. I don’t get how she does it. If I was to write about my life it would be the most boring lyric in the world (starts singing the Shake It Off melody): “I go to the studio every day…”

[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170418 JINWOO & SEUNGYOON for CECI May Issue

Another long hiatus that lasted 1 year and 2 months, reorganization from 5 members to 4. Upon its release, WINNER’s third mini album, “FATE NUMBER FOR” wiped out all doubt that surrounded them and recorded first place on the iTunes Charts in 21 different countries. Even now, two weeks since the release, “REALLY REALLY” refuses to drop from the top of the digital charts. We met with the two people who are at the center of all this talk, Kang Seungyoon and Kim Jinwoo of WINNER. We will suppress the urge to share all the details about how they were deeply natural with each other and how the melodies they hummed together matched so well. That is because it is unnecessary to talk about how WINNER is strong like they always have been and the fact that they still have much to show us.

I saw you two at a restaurant the other day. It was the day after the release of your album and the music videos for “FOOL” and “REALLY REALLY”.

JINWOO

Really?

SEUNGYOON

Oh, that was the day we went to eat nasigoreng and pasta!

It was fascinating. Your songs swept the charts and your music videos recorded ten million views in a day but you guys were eating lunch as if it was just another ordinary day. How did you feel?

JINWOO

The amount of attention and love we received for our debut album was unusual for a rookie group. We experienced many different things after that and after a long hiatus, we’re receiving so much love with our comeback so the greatest feeling we have right now is gratefulness.

SEUNGYOON

Oh, could you wait a second? Song Mino just video-called me saying that he wants to be interviewed with us. Hello? Hello? Oh, I can’t hear him well so I’ll hang up.

(Laughing) Is it really Mino?

SEUNGYOON

I just hung up (laughing) Like Jinwoo-hyung said, we received a lot of love with “Empty”, which was in our first album. Personally, I think I tried not to have much expectations for this album (FATENUMBERFOR). I put in the effort not to get excited even when our song got first place on the charts because it might drop soon after.

But even after 2 weeks have passed, it is still at the top of the charts. Is that satisfying?

JINWOO

It is very satisfying.

SEUNGYOON

I am a little satisfied? We were in a situation where we had to prove to people that it was possible for us to overcome the unfortunate things that happened to us and I think that’s been proven to some extent. Also, how it does on charts isn’t very important to me. I’m satisfied that our fans are liking our music.

You talked about which song you liked better in your V LIVE, right? I like “REALLY REALLY” a little more than “FOOL”.

JINWOO

Seungyoon made that.

Seungyoon took part in writing lyrics and composing the songs, right? And Jinwoo shouldered more weight as a vocalist. How did you feel when you listened to the songs for the first time?

JINWOO

Seungyoon usually sings the guide. He knows the color of our group and the vocal tones of the members so he makes songs that suit those things. Seungyoon took a large part in bringing a song that matches my voice well. I practiced and thought about how I should sing it but it feels like I didn’t need to prepare something more than my usual singing voice.

(Laughs) Aren’t you being too thankful to Seungyoon?

SEUNGYOON

I think the reason why “REALLY REALLY” is doing well is because all the members shine in it. For a group to get known by many people and to receive love, it is important for one member to really pull in the attention but the whole group getting shown is also important. I felt that this song could spotlight Jinwoo-hyung so I purposely put a lot of emphasis on Jinwoo-hyung’s parts. When someone thinks, “This person’s voice is pretty good,” then they can comfortably listen to the song while enjoying that vocalist.

Thanks to the start of the song, Jinwoo has also been called the “Where Are You Man” so it seems like what Seungyoon wanted is coming true.

SEUNGYOON

I’m personally very happy because Jinwoo-hyung’s voice tone and singing method and his other styles balance the song.

“REALLY REALLY” is a feel-good love song because it is really honest. Have you ever taken the step forward to honestly confess your feelings like the song?

JINWOO

I did have a time when I was innocent.

Do you think honestly confessing to someone would be difficult now?

JINWOO

No, I think I’ll always be like that…

SEUNGYOON

I didn’t write my experiences into the song. I just wanted to write the feelings I felt when I was very young. In a vague context. If you look at the lyrics, it doesn’t sound like a love story between adults. It has the vibes of a middle school student in a shoujou manga saying, “Where are you? I came because I missed you so come outside.” I purposely did not include the words, “I love you” in the lyrics. It’s not about loving someone, it’s about liking them.

Because you didn’t use strong words, it became a more lighthearted and innocent love song.

SEUNGYOON

It is also my style. I’m straightforward on a daily basis but when I’m confessing my feelings to someone, instead of saying, “I love you”, I say, “I like you” like a tsundere.

So it’s something like, “I love… I love… No, I like you”. On the other hand, “FOOL” is a breakup song. Excluding dating, what is the most regretful thing you have done?

SEUNGYOON

Hmm. You can say that we were at fault for our long hiatus after releasing our second album, “EXIT:E”. That is regretful to me. When I think about our fans who waited for such a long time, I become more regretful about that. I feel like I should’ve worked harder to do something. When I think about it now, I might’ve been blinded by the overwhelming response we got with our first album.

JINWOO

I regret small things. For example, if I had worked harder and studied a foreign language or learned how to play an instrument when we debuted, I would be really good at it now. I regret how I started learning how to play the drums but that has fizzled out now.

You learned the drums? Why?

JINWOO

There were no special reasons at first. But while I was learning it, I relieved stressed with it and my sense of rhythm improved too.

Talking about instruments reminds me about Seungyoon’s guitar. You were always with your guitar when you were on “Superstar K2”. What about now?

SEUNGYOON

I always have my guitars in my room but it’s been awhile since I properly played them. There is a preconceived notion that playing the guitar means that the person does rock or acoustic music. Because of that, I felt that WINNER’s music was getting discolored by me. It’s possible for people to think, “Kang Seungyoon probably does this kind of music. He plays the guitar so he probably can’t do that kind of music.” I wanted to avoid those kinds of obstacles when I’m promoting as WINNER. It is not like I didn’t practice at all but in the past year, I haven’t purposely used my guitar.

There are many people who look forward to your solo activities. Is the music you are working on right now going to influence solo activities?

SEUNGYOON

I think there will be some influence to an extent. Acoustic and rock music will not be completely gone. That type of music is one of the fields I can do. However, once WINNER solidifies as a group more, if I receive the opportunity for a solo album, I have an indefinite wish to title it, “Everything You Want” and include hip-hop, jazz, ballad, rock, and dance songs. I want to make an album that contains all kinds of music so that I can enjoy it, as the person making it, and so that people who listen to my album can enjoy it too.

Both of you are members who act. Jinwoo, do you have plans for any solo or acting activities in the future?

JINWOO

Hmm. Firstly, I’m still scared about challenging myself in releasing a solo song. I lack the certainty in knowing what song or style that will suit me best. I do think about continuing my acting. Since I started it, I want to properly work hard in it.

You made an unprecedented decision to perform in the Korea National Contemporary Dance Production of “The Little Prince” last December.

JINWOO

I really wanted to challenge myself in a new experience. When I was spending my days working out, taking lessons, practicing, and wanting to do something other than those things, I received a very good offer. I thought to myself that I needed to work really hard for it. The Seoul Arts Center stage is not a stage where even modern dancers perform on often. I also received a lot of stress because I was worried that I would be told “he’s like an idol”.

You two are part of a company that is known to make the most “hip” content in Korea. There are sub-labels of YG that produce subculture content too. Is there something you find interesting in the mainstream right now?

SEUNGYOON

DPR LIVE. I think he’s cool because he makes his own music, performs alone, produces videos alone, and just makes everything by himself. I also get inspired by what he makes.

JINWOO

I like DPR LIVE too and contemporary dance is fun too. It’s very liberating. I’m not saying this because I was in “The Little Prince”… (Laughing)

There are many WINNER songs that deal with loneliness and empty feelings. It is a universal emotion but are there times when you are more lonely because you are celebrities?

JINWOO & SEUNGYOON

Yes, very often.

JINWOO

It can’t be helped because there are always limitations on what people do every day and where people can go.

SEUNGYOON

I think celebrities are a little different from people who are recognized by others. We are aware that we are people who are recognized by other people, not celebrities. It’s not just about not keeping ourselves from drinking excessively or having harmless hobbies, we can’t easily do anything. In this context, we ended up growing apart from [non-celebrity] friends and the people who we can meet gradually become limited. It’s not like Jinwoo-hyung and I don’t contact our childhood friends at all but because we can’t meet each other comfortably like in the past, it feels like our surroundings are being compressed.

JINWOO

Once that happens, you naturally end up being alone most of the time. Even if I meet someone, it’s usually my members.

On top of that, both of your hometowns are far from Seoul. Jinwoo is from Imjado Island in Sinan and Seungyoon is from Busan. Do you guys like Seoul?

SEUNGYOON

We really love Seoul! There’s so many things to do here.

(Laughs) That’s a relief.

SEUNGYOON

There are many things to do but there’s not many things we can do. But I like shopping and I can do that to my heart’s content. Most of the friends I’ve met while working are in Seoul anyways so I’ve become comfortable with this city. It’s like my home.

JINWOO

There are really not many people on Imjado Island. I like Seoul because there are so many people. But I don’t like how there are many cars too.

You’ve been to many cities [in and out of Korea]. Is there a city you want to live in?

SEUNGYOON

We went to LA recently. Seunghoon-hyung says he wants to live in LA because the weather is nice and it’s relaxing. But if I were to choose between LA and New York, I would live in New York. For now, I like being in a busy place. I feel like if I live in a relaxing place, I would get depression. I think that’s because I don’t have a peace of mind yet.

JINWOO

I want to live in Sokcho. Unlike my hometown which is in the west coast of Korea, the east coast of Korea has really blue seas. When I saw it for the first time, I was really surprised. I thought I was overseas! I want to live in Korea while looking at a clean ocean. I don’t really like busy cities.

Your choice makes sense.

SEUNGYOON

But I still like Seoul best. New York is nice but Seoul is better.

JINWOO

That’s right. I like being in Korea the best.

I’m going to ask a heartwarming question. What are you to each other?

SEUNGYOON

You go first because you’re the hyung.

JINWOO

Hmm… I’ve been with Seungyoon for a long time. I’ve received a lot from Seungyoon but I’ve never directly thanked him before.

Then can you two say thank you to each other while looking into each other’s eyes?

SEUNGYOON

(Laughing)

JINWOO

Thank you, Seungyoon, really! I want to tell my other members thank you too. Hmm. I’m really thankful for them.

SEUNGYOON

I’m also thankful. I get lonely easily and even though we’ll probably live separately in a few years, I feel safe that my family lives with me. Jinwoo-hyung is more special to me because we’ve been together for the longest time.

JINWOO

When I look at Seungyoon, I feel really proud.

SEUNGYOON

Hyung raised me like a parent. When I joined YG, he took care of me a lot.

When Seungyoon joined YG as a trainee, he was already pretty famous but Jinwoo didn’t feel burdened by him?

JINWOO

I thought he would act like he’s all that but he wasn’t like that at all. Almost to the point where I found it fascinating.

SEUNGYOON

I really started from the bottom~

You two are more heartwarming than I expected. It’s a beautiful sight

JINWOO & SEUNGYOON

Thank you!

So this year, I haven’t played as many, or really any shows. But, I’ve had some things happen that I hadn’t ever had before in my career that I’ve always wanted-things that happened as a songwriter.
I got to write songs and have really amazing artists record them. It really felt amazing.
I never really knew what it would be like to hear a song you’ve written on the radio and hear someone else singing it. It turns out, it feels awesome. And I feel really grateful to be honest, they have decided to record things that I’ve written.
The one drawback, the one, is just that you don’t really get to hear the crowd sing the songs back to you very much. And I was wondering, if you knew any of these songs that I’ve written for other artists, and if you just wanted to sing along…

For the past two years, you’ve been working as a fully trained hair stylist and beauty therapist.

Since graduating from beauty school almost two years ago, you’ve been working in a well known salon in your local area of Columbus, Ohio. You were luck enough to get the job soon after graduating. You slowly but surely grew a base of loyal regulars who would only book appointments for you. One of these regulars just so happen to be the mom of a famous drummer in the band Twenty one Pilots.

Ever since your first appointment with Laura, she’s been telling you about her famous drummer son, Joshua and his best friend, Tyler, and that their band was very well know, especially in the local area, and in the recent year or so, they had started taking over the world, finally expanding and getting the recognition they deserve after years of hard work.

You strike up a surprising friendship, considering the age gap, with Laura. Over the first few months of appointments, she’d tell you all about her life, like her husband and children. She loved all of her children equally, but Joshua was the one she spoke most about the most.

I would like to talk to some people with synesthesia.  I have questions about what it’s actually like to live with.

Any variety of synesthsia is welcome.

Especially interested in:

auditory —> visual

olfactory —> visual

anything —> haptic/kinesthetic (whatever you call experiencing input as something with a shape and position)

QUESTIONS (as many or as few as you are comfortable with):

  • How strong is it overall?
  • Does it happen always, or is it triggered only by certain circumstances/unusually strong sensory stimulation/something else?
  • Is it something you can control/block out if you need to?  Is it something you can concentrate on and then experience at will?
  • Is it totally consistent? Like, if I say the word “cat” to you in exactly the same pitch and inflection on widely separate occasions, will it always appear green?  Does it vary with pitch/inflection/volume?
  • Does it seem “real?” If you, for instance, “see” sound, is the image actually present in your field of vision, or is it the strong visual impression of a thing, inside the mind?  Like the memory of something you saw?  Like you just “know” what the (for instance) sound or looks like or what the smell is shaped like?  Are you aware that it isn’t “real”? (”Real” in the sense that the crossover you are experiencing is not coming from the environment, but rather your reaction to it, thus it isn’t present in the real world…I am probably wording this poorly.)  Or can it seem absolutely real?
  • Can it be influenced by outside factors, the form partly/entirely created by association?  Like, if the first time you heard a song your feet were in sand and water, would that influence subsequent experiences of how that song “felt” (or looked, or whatever)?  Once an association has been formed, can it ever change?
  • If you are comfortable saying, do you have a mental illness characteristically associated with hallucinations?  Do you have hallucinations separate from the synesthesia, and if so, do they seem/feel different, subjectively?

I realize there are a lot of variations, it’s a poorly-understood thing and unique to each person.  I’m not looking to understand the “rules” as absolutes, I realize there are no such things.  

I’m looking to understand how it works for different people, and to explore whether I experience a very low-grade form of it under very specific circumstances.

I would like to talk about this, either publicly or privately.

Input from people with limited or mild forms is quite welcome!

REBLOGS WELCOME, or if you know some neat folks with synesthesia who would be willing to talk about it, feel free to send them my way!

“sex is great” but have u ever 

  • cracked your back and it feels like sleeping on clouds
  • heard that one chord in a song that just resonates with your soul
  • bit into pizza and it doesnt burn your tongue its just warm and yummy
  • drunk some hot chocolate and the marshmallows have melted perfectly
  • tucked a lock of hair behind your ear and it stays
  • breathed in deeply and then exhaled and felt that everything was ok
  • had someone lean their head on your shoulder absentmindedly
  • made your friend giggle
  • realized you had all the ingredients and time for your favorite food

Being with Minho was very complicated. You loved that man and he loved you, but sometimes love is not enough, there was a lot of toxic in the relationship, having to secretly date but dealing with each other every day like you were strangers, seeing him with other women in m/v’s and you had to dress them up in their very revealing clothes or straight up underwear, touching up on your man, it drove you to the stage of insanity.

He had to ignore you, he had to act like your relationship did not go past professional, but he also had to stand the idea of dressing up other idols. Epsecially the legendary G dragon, who had stated that you were his favorite stylist, just the idea of you seeing other men in just underwear was enough to get his blood boiling.

That caused fights, yelling and throwing things, slamming doors, saying things you would never say, tear stained cheeks and soft sobs that could be heard even with the door locked. It was not healthy, not for you nor him. Someone had to stop this, he was not strong enough and you knew it, he was too emotionaly attached to you, every time you had a fight he would sneakily come to the room and cling on to your body, wrapping his arms and legs around you, afraid that you will leave him

————–

“What is all this?”

He asked when he walked in on you packing the stuff you had left in his house and leaving the stuff he had left at yours. Hurt and confusion written all over his face. Your body and mind was numb, you didn’t feel anything, it was the stage that Minho feared, he knew that if he stopped getting a reaction from you, there was no way of changing it.

“I love you and you love me, but this is real life. I hope we can be professional at YG”

You tired to walk away but she stopped you, wrapping his arms around your waist, making the air leave your body. A tight grip like the ones at night, his nightmare came to life. You are leaving.

“Please (y/n) i’m not a beggar, but i’ll beg for you”

“Let me go Minho, let us go”

—————–

You were used to this. You were back to acting like strangers, but now you were hiding misery instead of love and jealousy, the professional relationship became strictly cold and on arms length. You could not leave your job, he certainly couldn’t leave either.

The pain became stronger when he saw you moving on. Jiyong found you single, he finally had the chance to flirt with you, it was like a stake went through his heart when he saw you walking with him through the halls and whispering about how the restuarant you went was great. He stopped dead in his tracks and looked at you guys backs, feeling his mind burning and his heart aching.

“Are you okay?”

His friend Bobby asked him. Bobby knew about you two, he could understand why you walked out of that relationship, but he could also acknowledge how much pain that caused. He had good relationships with him, but whenever he tried to bring it up to you, you would raise a thick brick wall and shut it out.

“Do you want an answer?”

He sarcastically answered. A bitter smile played on his lips, the lips that missed yours so much, or just a simple touch from your soft fingertips.

“Come on, the others are waiting for us”

———–

He couldn’t sleep at night. The bed felt too cold, he missed how you would lay on your back, waiting for your face cream to dry, how your hair would tickle his face at night, how you had a problem breathing so you would sleep with your mouth slightly open, how you would put a ton of blankets just so you can sleep with a shirt and underwear cause you hated pijama pants.

Then he wondered. Was Jiyong getting to know those habits? Did he started to figure out your night routine, maybe now you slept with your hair down, maybe now you would wait for your cream to dry before you laid in bed with him. Sleepless nights became his new habit now.

—————-

One day he cracked. He couldn’t stand your bright smile, You had to dress up his group and you were a tad bit too happy.

“Give me a minute”

He said and left the room, banging on the door. The guys didn’t know about you, it was your choice, so they thought it was just nerves from Taehyun leaving.

“(y/n) go talk to him, he always seem to listen to you”

Jinwoo said. Honestly you were curious about his blow up too, so you just nodded and walked out. He was just sitting at the end of the hall, his eyes closed and breathing through his mouth. You debated on if you should approach him or not. You took a step but stopped “Did he want to see you?” You thought.

“You can come, I want hurt you anymore”

He said. He heard the door opening and closing, he heard your hesitant heel clicking on the well polished floor. He felt a bit happy that you came out to see if he was okay, it meant that you cared.

“Are you alright?”

“Do you want me to be honest?”

“Yes”

“Then no i’m not. I haven’t been fine since you left”

“We were both unhappy before I left”

You defended yourself. He had held back his anger all this time, playing his character and keeping his composure like a well oiled machine. But hearing you saying that… it broke him.

“Who told you I wasn’t happy? You did that on your own”

“It was more of a fight club than a loving relationship”

“Bullshit!”

His voices was loud and booming, going throught the empty halls. You tried to keep your cool, if you both started yelling you would cause trouble, it could also cost you your Job.

“You just wanted the place clear for Jiyong”

That was it. You hand acted for you and slapped him hard, he looked back at you surprised. Instead of a poker face there was now an angry face, with tears filling up the eyes that he was never getting bored at staring.

“I loved you more than I loved myself. I stood by your side when no one was there, ME! the girl you are accusing did that. How dare you say that to me? You think you are the only one hurting? That only proves how selfish you are”

You were whisper yelling. You tried so hard to keep the tears in your eyes, but once you let all this out, one managed to slip out. You wiped it off as you turned your face on the other side, sniffing your nose.

“I miss you little wolf “

Your nickname. That silly nickname he gave you when you went to the zoo and he had to drag you away from the cage of wolfs. You were so fascinated by them, it was like you were in the pack. After that you got a tattoo of a wolf on your right thigh.

"I miss you too”

“Then why do you insist that we were not meant to be? I know you turned Jiyong down, you tried but you couldn’t. That’s what you said to him right?”

You nodded. Looking at the ground, you felt to arms pulling you, the second after your face met his shirt, as his palm and long fingers went to your hair.

“I love you”

“I love you too”

Have you ever had a long travel and you get that warm and comfortable feeling as soon as you step on your house? It’s the same feeling you felt when you relaxed in his hug. You let a long breath, kind of like that breath you leave after you unbutton your jeans, that relief of free space.

“Will you come back home?”

“Baby steps, let’s just take baby steps for now”

“What the queen wants, the queen gets"

It was another one of those brutally cold winter days. The wind was blowing with so much force, which was not helping the situation. You were desperately trying to make it to your daily coffee shop stop, battling the cold air hitting your face. You hastily walk into the coffee shop, shivering and trying to defrost from the numbingly cold outside air. The smell of freshly brewed coffee beans fill the atmosphere and reaches your nose, automatically warming you up and sending goosebumps along your arms. You grab your order of coffee, and turn to sit at a table near the window. It may be cold as balls out there, but it sure is beautiful, you thought to yourself as you sat, taking a sip of your drink. It’s been years since you’ve found yourself back in this country. And sitting in this coffee shop, in your hometown, could only bring up nothing but feelings of nostalgia. It begins to course through your veins and you smile at the feeling of home.

You’re skimming through the paper that was previously left on the table, catching up on local stories, passing time away.

“Y/N?” a strangely familiar voice calls out. You look up and your eyes scan the tall, beautiful being standing before you. Your mind is racing at the speed of light, trying to process what your eyes were seeing. There he was, Byun Baekhyun standing there, wide eyed and with a cup of coffee in hand.

“B-Baek?” Was all you could say before you two erupted in a fit of gentle laughs and astonishment, hugging each other. You both start to engage in the typical conversation of disbelief that either of you are actually really there, commenting on how long it’s been since you two have seen each other.

“Eight years, actually,” Baekhyun says, taking the other unoccupied seat at your table.

“Whoa. Time…”

“It flies, doesn’t it, Y/N?”

MONSTA X REACTIONS : Surprising you for your birthday

Requests are open ♥

Shownu would come and surprise you at the end of the day at work. He would buy a rose bouquet with a letter and take you on a 2 days 1 night trip to spend the weekend together. He would have prepared the whole weekend in advance, going to an aquarium, getting couple massages, or having dinner at a restaurant… Everything was planned for you to enjoy a perfect weekend with the one you loved. 

Wonho would send you a text telling you to check in your bedroom once you’ll be back home tonight. He would’ve booked a table at a fancy restaurant and bought you a stunning outfit for you to put on for the night. The both of you would spend a delightful dinner and before the desert he would make you stand up, turn you around and put a necklace around your neck, “Happy birthday, thank you for being born.” You would then spend the night together. What the both of you did that night is up to your imagination lol.

Kihyun would’ve told you to come home a bit later that night to have time for him to prepare. He would’ve cooked a whole meal the whole day to then put together a simple but elegant table. Candles, crystal glasses, wine and champagne… Everything was there. Once you’d get home he’d act as a gentleman, removing your coat and leading you to the table, “You’re the main guest tonight, you stay there and I’ll take care of you.” He’d act as the perfect boyfriend, making you feel like the most important person for the rest of the night. 

Hyungwon would ignore you all day long, from the moment he woke up he’d act annoyed. He knew you didn’t care about birthdays and you always forget about yours so that’s why he pranked you. Not answering your texts all day long, you’d come home to a dark house. Not lights and all the blinds shut. Once you’d turn out the lights all your close friends would pop up and scream “Surprise!” and Hyungwon would be all smiles and laugh at your surprised face.

Minhyuk would treat you like a Queen/King from the moment you opened your eyes in the morning. He would bring you breakfast in bed, spoiling you with his love and gifts. You would also spend the day at the amusement park, feeling like a children again and having the greatest time ever. Once you’d get home, you would spend the night cuddling together under a blanket in front of a movie. 

Jooheon would wake you up with kisses and hugs, he would act like the most affectionate person. He would have prepared a song for your birthday, telling you everything he felt for you and how precious you were to him. He would gift you with promises rings to then take you on a picnic in the forest. 

I.M wouldn’t be able to spend the day with you due to his busy schedule. However, he would’ve prepared his surprise when you were asleep, leaving notes all over your house to give you hints about where he hid your present. The last note you’d pick up would be in a cupboard and it would say “Check the mail.” and it would be 2 tickets for your dream destination.

i don’t own any of the gifs ; credit to owners 

Not A Kid Anymore. (Mingyu Smut)

heeeyy guys, so i know, if you’ve seen my post then you’ll know that this is a re-post. so all my works on my original account will be reposted here. (even though i only got 2 posts lol) so yeah, this is not plagiarized guys, okay? :) okay. ily x i know there are a lot of you who are silent readers mehe 


It’s been 3 years since you’ve last seen the boys. You had to go to the states because of work, originally, you had been a trainee at PLEDIS with the boys, also wanting to debut in the future but you had obviously had found better opportunities as a stylist. You and the boys were quite well known back in the days because of your amazing friendship. You and the boys have been nothing but supportive towards each other, but considering you were older (24) they still had that respect towards you. You’ve been with them long enough to be able to talk informally, but of course, they are just really nice kids, you could say you’ve been with them through thick and thin, but never really lost contact.That was until a year and a half ago, when they finally (after years of training) had their own program, 17 Project. That was when their schedule was too busy, and eventually you lost contact with them. But you didn’t mind at all, you were still able to them on TV.

Ten Signs You've Found Your Twin Flame

As you continue to journey on your spiritual path, you will probably hear the term “twin flame” somewhere along the way. Twin flames possess the same soul, just in two different bodies, and may or may not incarnate at the same time here on Earth. When twin flames reunite, the entire energy of the universe shifts due to the immense power generated by both souls coming back together as one.

Twin flames seem to converge throughout many lifetimes here on Earth and on other planets, so when they meet again, it feels like they’ve known one another forever. If you need some reassurance and guidance to know if you have indeed crossed paths with your twin flame, here’s 10 ways to find out:


1. You feel an overwhelmingly powerful connection with them, unlike any you’ve ever felt before.

You feel like you have walked into a lighter vibration in their presence, and don’t feel as affected by the troubles in our Earthly realm right now. You feel perfectly balanced and aligned with Source energy when you’re with them.


2. You have had intense dreams or visions of them reappearing in your life, and felt their presence long before they manifested physically.

You also experienced other synchronicities, such as seeing 11:11 on the clock, feeling waves of good energy wash over you for no particular reason, hearing a song playing frequently on the radio, or other signs from your angels or messengers. Things in your life seem to manifest much more quickly than before, and your partner or love interest experiences these phenomena as well.


3. You have past life memories with this person, and can recall vivid details from your previous experiences together.

Seeing your partner in person felt like “coming home,” and they trigger strong emotions in you because of the intensity of the connection.

“Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends.” – Hafiz


4. Though you and your partner share the same soul, you have significant differences in your personality, demeanor, likes, dislikes, and other traits.

Your twin flame understands you at a deep soul level like no one else can, but on the surface, you seem to be polar opposites. You complement one another’s strengths and weaknesses, perfectly exemplifying the yin/yang energies.


5. You have an extremely telepathic or psychic connection with your partner, and can therefore sense when something is amiss, when they’re thinking or talking about you, or when they distance themselves from you.

Because both of you have such a profound connection to one another, you experience the same emotions and illnesses at the same times quite often. Their pain is your pain; their happiness is your happiness.


6. It’s likely that the first time both of you met, you were in relationships already, or just didn’t feel prepared to come together and serve the universe through the love you both had for one another.

Twin flame relationships are the most powerful on Earth, and both people have to feel spiritually, mentally, and emotionally ready to handle such a passionate, meaningful connection. One of you may have run from the other, shielding yourself from the vulnerability you would inevitably feel in the relationship. Years may have passed before you met up again, but now you both have healed old wounds and have grown on your individual paths. Now, you both feel capable of enduring life’s challenges together, and serving humanity in a similar way.


7. Despite all of the hardships you may go through in life, you both continue to evolve together, and make one another better people.

While you may feel unbearable pain at times in the relationship, you come out stronger, wiser, and better able to navigate the Earthly realms. You realize that both of you were meant to be together in order to raise the vibrational frequency of the Earth, and aid humanity during these turbulent times as we shift into a new paradigm. You know that you couldn’t accomplish the same goals with anyone else, as you and your twin flame share the same visions for your future.


8. Being apart from your twin flame for any lengthy amount of time feels unendurable, and you function best in their presence.

While you can go about your days on your own, you feel a deep sense of longing for your twin flame, and may even suffer physical symptoms during times of separation.


9. You understand more about yourself and this human experience than you ever have before when united with your partner; he or she takes you to new depths of your soul that you didn’t even know existed before meeting them.

Exciting plans continue to unfold for the two of you, and at lightning speed. You finally know what it feels like to ride the rollercoaster of life, and for once, you let your hands wave wildly in the air because you know you’re safe in your partner’s hands.


10. No matter what annoys you about your partner, you can overlook these unappealing habits or personality traits, because you have unconditional love for them.

You couldn’t imagine yourself expanding your consciousness so deeply with anyone else, and know that you both belong together on this soul journey
