 You and Mark had been friends for a very long time now. You’d talk every night before either of you went to bed and you’d talk the second you both awoke the next day, even if it was only for a minute. You loved spending time together; you’re each others’ best friends. 

 Today, you two had planned a “get away”, as Mark called it. You both have been stressed and in need of a break so this was the perfect plan for you guys. He picked you up around 9am this morning and you have been with him since.

 The day consisted of many bad puns, high pitched laughing, jamming out in the car, jamming out in stores, deep conversations, loving gazes and currently, walking through the city park.

 It was getting late and the sun was almost completely gone but neither one of you wanted your time together to stop. It was rare that you both got a free day and spent it together.

“Yah! Mark, look at the bunny.” You yelled in a hushed whisper while lightly hitting him. His eyes followed yours as he quietly laughed at you. “Stay here.” You demanded.

 Mark watched you tip-toe towards the small creature. The closer you got, the lower you got the the ground. “Hi buddy.” You repeat as you grow closer. Mark continues to stay where you told him to but he can’t help the growing smile on his face as he watches you.

 You continue trying to pet the fluffy animal but every time you’d get remotely close enough to it, it’d hop away; making your best friend laugh more. Finally, you grew frustrated with the bunny and fell backwards onto the ground. “I give up.” You sigh.

 Mark couldn’t get rid of the smile that was printed on his face as walked over to you and sat beside your defeated figure. “You’re such a dork.” He chuckled when he saw your adorable, fake pout. 

 “It was so cute! All I wanted to do was pet it.” You exclaimed, sitting up to face the man beside you.

 “Maybe it didn’t want to be petted.” He conjectured.

 “Obviously.” You sighed. 

You both looked up to the sky, watching the clouds overlay the visible moon. “You know,” You uttered. “We should get a bunny.” 

 Mark looked at you with wide eyes when he heard your suggestion. “_____, I already share a dog with Youngjae, I don’t think I need another animal.” He smiled, letting out a breathy laugh.

 “But Mark~” You whined with a smile plastered upon your face.

 “No.” He laughed “Besides, why a bunny with me? Why not with your best friend?”

 You began to gawk at him. “Mark, you are my best friend, you idiot!” You yelled while playfully hitting his chest.

 “No, no, I mean your other best friend.” He laughed.

 You just simply rolled your eyes at him and fell back onto the grass again. You turned towards him when you noticed he followed your actions. You both were now laying on the ground, facing each other with your heads propped up on your own hands.

 “Thank you for today, Mark.” You muttered.

 “Don’t thank me, there’s no need.” He admitted. 

 “To late, you’ve been thanked.” You smiled angelically.

 You rolled onto your back and looked up towards the sky that was growing darker. You watched the clouds and the stars that were slowly becoming visible with the passing seconds. You began talking about something that Mark wasn’t listening to; instead he was focused on his own thought as he observed you.

 He was brought out of his gaze when you hit his chest to look up at the “Bunny” you saw in the stars.

 “Do you see it?” You asked, smiling.

 “No.” He began to laugh. “I think you’ve had too much fun today.”

 “Impossible.” You stated. “You can never have too much fun.”

 He smiled at you while your giggles faded and your focused went back to the stars. 

 She’s so perfect. That is the single phrase that continued to run through his head, no matter how hard he tried to focus. He didn’t think too much of his thoughts as he always saw you as beautiful but the second he saw you take in a deep breath of the cold night air and smile as you breathed out, his thoughts changed.

 This is what I want to wake up to. She is the one that I want to share a home with and kiss on the cheek before I leave for work. She is what I want.

 It clicked.
 He finally realized why he always wants to spend every possible moment with you.
 He knows why he gets so angry when you hang out with guys he doesn’t know.
 He now knows what he wants,
and it’s you.

WTWF behind the scenes!

So a lot of thought went into making WTWF, and I thought it would be cool to show you guys some of the ideas and planning about the story that you might not know about :) Thank you again to everyone who took the time to read my fic and leave wonderful messages about it to me, you guys are the absolute best <3

  • WTWF was supposed to be a one-shot story originally! But then I realized all of the scenes in my head were going to be long so I ended up dividing it into chapters
  • the first title for this story was ‘Tasting Marigolds’ or ‘The Taste of Marigolds’. But I didn’t want to spoil Killua’s flower until the 5th chapter so I had to change that.
  • I didn’t come up with the idea for Killua’s flowers to be marigolds! Someone submitted this fanart and poem to me about the hanahki au before I had a plan for a full fic and I just kept the flower from there since the marigold meaning is so perfect
    • Marigolds represent despair and grief over the loss of love and the beauty and warmth of the rising sun, so its perfect for killugon!

Tommy Shelby Imagine

Request: Could you do Thomas Shelby request of having grown up with the Shelby boys but your family moving when you were teenagers and then coming back as a adult to be a nurse in the clinic in Small Heath and running back into the Shelby boys (but having kept contact with Ada since you are like a older sister to her) who can’t help but flirt and basically becoming their go to ‘doctor’ and one night after fixing Tommy up their feelings come out??

Note: Okay so I’ve missed out some parts of the request. I couldn’t fit it all in, it would go on forever so I’ve tried to shorten it the best I can whilst keeping the main part of the request all in.

You felt a sudden rush of butterflies in your stomach, the nerves were kicking in now. You were on the train on your way back to Birmingham. Your first time back in seven years. You played over all the different scenarios in your head and all the different things that could be different about Garrison Lane and the people that lived there.

You moved away when your were only a teenager, your parents were having a lot of problems, dad cheating on mum blah blah and they wanted to make their marriage work so they decided a fresh start would be best for you all. You’ll never forget the day they told you, your heart crumbled into a million pieces right there in front of them. You pleaded with you parents to stay “Please, please! All my friends are here, my job is here” but they didn’t listen to you, “oh nonsense (Y/N) you’ll meet lots of new friends in London” that wasn’t really the reason you wanted to stay, quite frankly you hated your part time bar job you had, and you didn’t really get on with anyone at school, you just didn’t want to leave the Shelby’s especially Tommy. You’d all grown up together on the same road and lived next door from each other, you did everything with the boys, they were your family. It had felt wrong but you started to feel different about Tommy, there was something about him, he was different from John and Arthur, he was…special. None the less you left anyway, but you never told Tommy how you felt, it had been so many years since it all happened, the feelings just died away, you don’t think they could exist anymore. Besides, you were sure it was just a teenage crush.

Ada was coming to meet you at the station, you had kept in contact with her, you both write letters to each other all the time, you were like the big sister she never had and even though you were one hundred miles away for seven years, it always felt like you had seen each other everyday, she filled you in and updated you on everything that happens with the family, you both sent weekly letters the whole time however they became less frequent after Karl was born and Freddie died. She was obviously just caught up with everything, and busy looking after Karl, which you understood.

The train started pulling into the station, slowing down, you searched through the window to see if you could find Ada, wondering if she came alone or if she had brought her brothers with her. You spotted her almost instantly, standing alone with Karl in her arms, this was the first time you got to see Karl in person. As soon as the train stopped you dived off with your luggage, she spotted you just as you got off the train.

“(Y/N)” She squealed. Dropping your cases, you ran to her and embraced her in a hug.

“Ada, its been so long. I’ve missed you so much” you choked. You both stayed in your hug for what seemed so long before Ada pulled away, tears filled her eyes and were falling to her cheeks. 

“I can’t believe it, you’ve changed so much!” She smiled

”I’ve changed? Look at you now! At how well you’ve done for yourself” You replied wiping your eyes, referring to Karl.

“Karl” Ada said placing Karl down onto the floor, she held his hands whilst she spoke softly to him “This is your Auntie (Y/N)”

Karl wouldn’t leave you alone the whole way home, he held your hand whilst you spoke to Ada, getting updated on everyone since you last spoke to each other.


You were back at the Shelby house now, none of the boys were in yet, so you and Ada, were sat at the table having a coffee whilst Karl sat on the floor with his toys.

”When will the boys be back? I thought they’d be here by now. They knew I was coming today.” You huffed, eager for the reunion.

“Well…” Ada started “You see…. they don’t actually know?”

“What?” You replied, genuinely thinking you may have misheard what she had just said

“I thought it would be a nice surprise for them” She exclaimed innocently

Before you could argue about it with her, the door slammed. “Ada?! Ada! You won’t believe what Joh-” Arthur cut off what he was saying once he’d seen you, he stood in shock, not quite believing his eyes. The silence brought John and Tommy in the room, both curious to what shut him up.

“(Y/N)?” John questioned “Wha- What are you doing here?” Before I could reply they both ran at you into a hug, you all laughed and said how much you missed each other, complementing each other on appearances. You pulled away from them both to greet Tommy who was still standing in the doorway watching you.

“Thomas?”

He replied with a small smile, and watery eyes. You walked to him, stopping inches away, waiting for him to speak, but nothing. He just watched you. You couldn’t work out if he was happy or disappointed to see you. You held onto his shoulders and pulled him into a hug. You didn’t care if he din’t want to. You did. He wrapped his arms around, you could feel his strong hands against your back and face his tucked into your neck. You had a sudden rush of a million different feelings come to you at once, familiar ones that you had once felt for him. Feelings that deep down, never really left. Tommy pulled away and wiped a tear that had escaped your eyes with his thumb. in that moment, that one little moment, you realised how you really feel about Tommy Shelby. He was your first love, your best friend and you knew that feeling would never go away.


It’s been one week since you moved home to Birmingham and one week since you last spoke to Tommy Shelby. Yep, thats right… its not like he hasn’t acknowledged you at all, its just as little as he can get away with. When you do try to speak to him, its all one worded answer or grunts as well as avoided eye contact. Speaking of ‘avoided’ thats all he’s done to you since you’ve been here. Still though whatever his reasons were for ‘hating’ or ‘disliking’ you, it didn’t change the way you felt, you’d just realised you truly loved him. That feeling wouldn’t go away because of how he’s been this last week. Which is why it explained why you were sitting in the living room at three am. Everyone was in bed asleep, apart from Tommy. He’d gone out somewhere and not yet come back. You couldn’t sleep it was constantly on your mind and you couldn’t stop worrying no matter how hard you tried not to. So instead of struggling to sleep, you thought you’d just read a book or something (even though you couldn’t concentrate) and wait just to make sure he was in ok. At half three in the morning Tommy walked through the door into the living room where you were waiting.

“What are you doing up this late?” he questioned avoiding your eye, he walked over to the cabinet and poured himself a whiskey. It didn’t take a genius to notice the cuts all over is face and his dried bloody nose, even in this light.

“What happened to you? Are you okay?” You asked concerned

Tommy turned to look at you confused “Are you- are you waiting up for me?”

“No!” you barked back denying it, although you’re pretty sure that just made it even more obvious you were

Tommy didn’t reply sitting down on the sofa next to you taking a swig of his drink. His eyes looked tired, he looked physically drained. “I’ll just go get some stuff, we’ll clean you up” you said softly

“I’m fine, don’t” Tommy shook his head, refusing your offer

“Let me help you for gods sake Thomas” before he could say anymore you got up and left the room to get your little medical kit you took everywhere with you. You returned a couple of minutes later, Tommy still sat in the same place as when you left. You cleaned his cuts and put some cream over them to help. Once you had finished you let her hand drop to your waist and you watched him in silence, trying to figure out what on earth he was thinking, and what on earth he had just been doing. 

“I’m sorry” he spoke barely a whisper, not looking at you

“Don’t mention it” you replied waving a hand “I do this all the time” referring to cleaning up the cuts “normally they’re a lot worse”

“I don’t mean for fixing up my cuts” he turned to look at you “I mean for how I’ve been acting” his eyes never left yours, your heart sunk, he knew what he was doing the whole time. You didn’t reply, you just let him speak “Its just…. I just, didn’t know how to be around you. I thought things had changed, but when you came back last week, It just all come back to me and i’ve been so…..so overwhelmed I’m trying to take it all in” he swallowed

You cocked your head to one side in confusion, you wasn’t sure what he was getting at “Whats wrong Tommy. You know you can tell me everything. Its me” you placed you hand over his and squeezed it gently. He looked down at your hands before turning back to you, he moved in before you had the time to realise what was happening, he kissed you. It was just like you’d ever hoped it would be.

“(Y/N)” Tommy said pulling away “I love you. I’ve loved you since we were kids. And when you left, it hurt so badly. But I never stopped and I never will, no matter how hard I’ve tried. I will always, always, always love you”

A tear fell to your cheek, your heart was bursting with more love and joy than you’ve ever felt because Tommy Shelby just made you the happiest girl in the world. You choked back your tears “I was waiting up for you.” the pair of you laughed and kissed again before you held is face and spoke the most truest words you have ever said “I love you too”


I really hope you guys have enjoyed this! Let me know what you think, and if you have any requests, suggestions just send them through, I will try my best.

Thing that I noticed and mid-theories in BTS- Blood sweat and tears mv

1. Daedalus and Icarus.

In Greek mythology Daedalus was a craftsman . He had a son Icarus. Once Daedalus built wings from feathers and wax. Father and his son were testing out new vehicle. Icarus was too enthusiastic and he flight too high, warmth of the Sun melted the wax and he fell down and died from the fall.

Now the question how it is connected to BTS? First of all- WINGS. The series of short films with the title “Wings” and motive that was used in them.

Second. The paintings.

Landscape with the Fall of Icarus  by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. We see it in the scene of Taehyung jumping off the balcony.

The Lament for Icarus by Herbert James Draper. It is located in the room with Jungkook on the swing.

Further in the mv, when boys are running out of the ‘museum’, Jin stops and is looking back on something. Then Taehyung comes to him and covers Jins’ eyes. Now we can see some  glimpses of someone covered in some kind of curtain. The curtain rises and shows off kneeling Taehyung with revealed remains of wings on his back.


After this we see what Jin sees after Tae uncovers Jins’ eyes. We see a statue of man with black wings. The statue probably just appeared because it isn’t visible earlier in the mv. Jin comes to the statue and kisses it.

It is possible that Taehyung is compared to Icarus or even is a Icarus. He was also carried by emotions (I need you mv, where he killed his father or his sisters’ boyfriend). And his reaction was a reason of his failure.

Jin might be a equivalent of Daedalus. He gently kisses a statue (of Taehyung?) as a sign of mourning. In the mv we also could see a midified version of Pieta by Michaleangelo. Which shows Virgin Mary with dead Jesus Chris on her lap. Both the myth and the Pieta in some ways shows a suffering of parent after losing own child.

The thing I’m completely clueless about is why the figure of Jesus in mv is unfinished. It still looks kind of like raw stone.Maybe is it because of things that wasn’t finished during the lifetime? Because Christ died when he almost finished his mission on Earth so the statue in the mv isn’t finished like his?



2. Fallen Angel

Jin is here looking at the painting named The Fall of the Rebel Angels by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Painting shows two Biblical scenes from the beginning and end of the world.

- exile of rebel angels from Heaven. Which in the Bible is the first fight between good and evil.

- Archangel Michael killing a seven headed dragon. In Book of Revelation there are described two beasts. One that “rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns”. The appearance of second is pretty much unknown.

 Going back to fallen angels. As we all know angels have wings. The most stereotypical image of angel is a beautiful human with wings and blonde hair. Which one of our boys has both? Yep, Taehyung. Maybe is Tae some kind of fallen angel? He already shown his roguish and rebellious side in I need you mv, Run mv and his Stigma short film.


There is one more thing about Pieter Bruegel, one of his most famous works is The Seven Deadly Sins and The Virtues. He did a series of allegories of grotesque sinners and virtues with odd headpieces. Which reminds me of Jins’ teaser photos. It is also possible that Jin and Taehyung are portrayed as  opposites.

3. Kain and Abel. Adam and Eve.

Again the Bible. Adam and Eve were the first humans. But because of Satans’ trap they were exiled from paradise. Satan in the form of snake convinced Eve to eat a fruit from the forbidden tree.In many versions this fruit was an apple.

Hello there.

In this case Jimin is the figure of Eve. And Adam, maybe it’s J-Hope? Because they were together in hospital or Yoongi because their short films were connected.


Kain and Abel. They were brothers, long story short Kain killed his brother. After the murder Kain was stigmatized. Again Tahyungs’ short film title was Stigma. Also a loud thing across ARMYS. Demian by Herman Hesse. Book that is a large part of some theories. One chapter of it “Kain”. Main character was talking with Demian about Kain and misunderstanding of his figure. Demian claimed that Kain probably hadn’t killed his brother, but people scared of his stigma were talking behind his back and that is how the story was created.

Another important part of the plot is the way of understanding the world by the main character. Sinclair always was seeing world as two parts: good and evil. At the beginning he was part of the good side but as the time passed he slowly became part of dark side. At first by mistakes of youth. Sounds familiar?



4. Perseus and Medusa.

See this little guy on the left?

This is him. His name is Perseus and he just killed the Medusa.

This poor girl was turned into a Gorgon (human with snake hair, that could turn a living creature into a stone just by making an eye contact with it) by jealous goddes. He defeated her using a winged shoes of Mercury and mirrored shield. Even after death her gaze was so powerful that it stayed in mirror of shield. It still could petrify.

In past short films there was the image of mirror. In one of past theories I saw that broken glass or mirror symbolizes broken promises. In case of BTS it was RapMonster and Taehyung.


In the mv there is also breakage in the mirror, but this time it’s Jin. His face break a few seconds after the face on Virgin Mary on Pieta. Another comparison?




5. Mother

In a couple of short films there was this picture of woman holding a child. Probably mother with her child. Also look at Jin in past mvs like Run or in Prologue. He was taking care of boys, driving the car, taking photos etc. Kind of like a loving mother would. Another little thing is that J-Hopes’ short film was named Mama.





6. Chaos

“ One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.“

Friedrich Nietzsche

The meaning of this quote is something like you must stay in chaos, push yourself to the limits to become a better version of you (the dancing star).

In my opinion this could mean that boys had been pushing themselves to the edge, risking almost everything to repair the mistakes of their past. To get out of the labyrinth of mistakes (Forever young mv).



7. Eden

Eden is a biblical garden of peace, a paradise. It was the garden that Adam and Eve was banished from. There are two scenes in the mv. One with all the boys sitting at the table, and second only Jin is there and he’s standing on the table.



♥♥♥ I know it was messy but I hope you understood my path of thinking. ♥♥♥

edit. I forgot about adding one thing. The number seven. There is seven members, dragon had a seven heads and there is seven deadly sins.

edit 2. Thank you <3

Why I Write

Oki! (Hello)

When I was in high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Quite frankly I was mostly just scared of failing so I never really “tried”. I was just a girl from a rez. All I knew was that I wanted to be involved with the media industry in some way. It intrigued me because it was and still is constantly evolving. 

This past October, I got the opportunity of a lifetime.. Well for me, anyway! I got an interview to work for my reserve’s media outlet. Three weeks later, I got the call that I got the job. Immediately, I thought “shit, I can’t do this!” This was my first reaction because I’m not one to finish what I start. Also, I get scared of failing so I get discouraged easily. The job description included: 10 newspaper articles per month, 10 hours of radio per week, three photos per article (plus 10+ photos for the rest of the paper), advertising, graphic design, editing, videography, and interviews. I was expected to take over the newspaper, radio station, and media services for an entire reserve. Canada’s second largest reservation… On my first day I got a tour of the office and the radio board was like braille to me, there’s no way I can learn this and figure out what it means. And let me touch on the fact that I’m the ONLY person doing all of this. Yes, I only have 2 other co-workers. Our boss/editor and the office administration. I’ve had about 67728 “I’m not cut out for this shit” moments since i’ve started. Yet, I’m still here. Let me explain why:

I took everything gradually. The first two months I focused solely on photography and writing, because that already came easy to me. Then I hit the ground crawling with the radio content and I’ll be honest, I’m still not perfect at it; but I’ll get where I want to be. Next I’ll be focusing on videos so I can do news casts, live on location updates, interviews, short docs, etc. And good news: I have since been upgraded to full time this past April! I haven’t been fired yet! With a population of +7,000, I underestimated how many people I’m actually reaching. Not to mention the surrounding areas of my reserve, which include all of Southern Alberta. So again, why am I still here? 

Growing up, I was a jingle dress dancer. I have always been proud of my culture and where I’m from. I’m 100% Blackfoot and I’ve never shied away from that. Outside media tends to paint a negative depiction of First Nations reservations, or natives in general. Drugs, alcohol, abuse, violence, homelessness, these topics are often used when major outlets cover first nations stories. And to top it all off: when these are broadcasted, social media trolls have a field day in the comments section. Yes these unfortunate things happen to First Nations, I’ve already had to write a few articles on them. However, that’s not all we are. We’re not all high school dropouts, drug addicts, panhandlers, drunks on the streets, dealers, prostitutes, etc…

Just like EVERY community out there, these things exist. It just takes a small number to make the rest of us look bad. How many city kids have ever been to a reservation? I highly doubt a lot have been. Yet, most of them only see a Native in person if one is homeless or drunk downtown asking for change. That’s the only impression of Natives that some non-natives get. 

Also, our issues are more offered to the general public because reserves are much smaller, so when violence, drugs, or controversy or whatever happen it’s a huge thing, thus causing outside media to swoop in and report on it. Let me give you a personal example: My first HUGE coverage was the Castle Mountain Land Claim settlement. Basically, Canada took a piece of our land away and we have never been compensated for it. That land is nestled between Lake Louise and Banff. So I’m live on location in Siksika and a guy from the Calgary Sun and the Calgary Herald calls me and just strikes up a conversation with me. I told him not to quote anything from our conversation, but what does he do? He misconstrues my words and basically wrote that I said we’re selling our land. I died, I thought for sure I was fired. Thankfully my boss was behind me throughout the mess and the fallout. But after, I learned that the big boys in the city will do anything for a controversial story, especially if it involves Natives. However I’m not bitter, I just learned the hard way that that’s how some journalists work. Now, the reason I write? Why am I still in this stressful, underpaid position?

I want to counteract the negativity. I want to help the departments on my nation. I want to shed light on issues that need awareness. I want to celebrate nation members who are doing positive things for the community. I want to continue running a radio station and newspaper, and hopefully it’ll develop into something bigger. Possibly add a magazine, podcasts, apps, photo studio, the list goes on. I want to continue dreaming and thinking outside the box, because it is all possible.

I love my job! I love all that I do. Will it be as stressful forever? No, because I’m still learning, and it’ll honestly take me about a year or so to “settle” and get into the regular grind and routine. Am I a perfect writer/ interviewer/ radio host/ photographer/ videographer/ editor? Definitely not. But I know I am determined to get to where I want to be.

I’m still here because this is what I’ve wanted forever. And what you want won’t come easily at all. You have to fight for it and that’s what makes it worth it. I don’t want to be a radio star or a native Oprah, I simply want to share stories to help others. I am happy to say that at 24 years old, I finally know my career and purpose.

Victor’s Thought Process and his Decision to become Yuuri’s Coach

So I’m sure a bunch of people have talked about this by now but I just wanted to add my 2 cents. We can now clearly see Victor’s mental journey when it comes to his decision to be Yuuri’s coach and that, unlike what we had previously thought, it was never just based on a whim in the first place.

creativity-thewise  asked:

I've never heard/thought about Thalia as cap and Jason as winter soldier until I read your tags! And now I'm suddenly interested can you tell me more about??

indeed i can. first of all; i get that jason looks a lot like cap, but he really doesn’t ACT like steve rogers. if you’re seeing steve as a flowery grandpa who abides by all rules always, you’d be wrong and it doesn’t really fit for jason, either. thalia on the other hand has MASSIVE similarities with cap. like.

  • both of them are SUPER defensive. about themselves, about the people they love, the things they want to keep from others. a lot of it would have come from how they were raised. remember that steve rogers had an alcoholic father, and thalia had an alcoholic mother. steve lost his mother young, and thalia’s was so negligent she had to look after herself for the most part. both of them are extremely independant. and severely against anything that could detract from that. i.e. steve’s issues with certain authority figures/following blind orders, and thalia’s refusal to bow to that prophecy. they decide on their own terms where they fight, who they fight for, and why
  • again, coming from their childhood experiences, they are also fiercely protective of the people close to them. i.e. bucky and jason (and annabeth/luke, but that’s for later). their lives did not revolve entirely around this other person, no, but it was shaped to include them. and the loss of them tore something away that moulded them into something else. they never lost that protective streak (cap with the avengers, thalia with luke/annabeth and the huntresses), but it became so ingrained in them that they HAD to protect, they were willing to give their lives for that cause. (edit; more under the cut cos’ this got LONG)

Tokusatsu 101: Kamen Rider Memes (Part 4)

Meme #10

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!/SUBARASHII!

Point of Origin: Kamen Rider OOO

Kamen Rider OOO was one part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the franchise (the other part was Fourze), featuring a hero who uses the mystical and natural powers of animals in the form of coins called Core Medals. The series currently holds the record for most Rider forms with over 129 total possible forms for the main hero!

This cheerful fellow is Kousei Kougami, the President of the Kougami Foundation, a corporation that is researching alternative energy and mystical artifacts among other things. They help the hero but also stay neutral as they have their own agendas.

Mr. Kougami is…a bit out there, he loves the beginning of things seeing them as beautiful and loves to make birthday cakes, so much so his office sits on top of a bakery. (Hence some fans nickname him “Japanese Cake Boss”)

Whenever something new happens with OOO or the evil Greeed he exclaims: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” and he is overly enthusiastic and excitable. When things go his way or please him, he loudly proclaims that this is “SUBARASHII!” (Splendid!) This makes him a fun character as you never know what to expect from him and the delightfully hammy acting and mugging of Takashi Ukaji really sells it.

Uses: Simply a way to wish a Rider fan, actor, producer or writer a Happy Birthday. When something excites you. When you see a birthday cake in a Kamen Rider Series.

Also fun fact, the song “Happy Birthday to You” is now in a legal battle to enter the public domain. So if you wish to do a silly video impersonating Kougami singing it, soon you may not have to pay royalties to the guy who wrote it… despite the fact he’s been dead for over 100 years.

Starfish-Hitler

Source: Kamen Rider X

There are moments in Japanese TV that make you say: “What in God’s name am I watching?” This is one of them and arguably the most infamous enemy in Kamen Rider. Even some non-Rider fans know of this due to how bizarre it is.

Kamen Rider X was the 3rd series and had an aquatic Rider who was the first to have an on-board weapons system in the belt.

After failing to defeat Kamen Rider X with their Greek Myth themed cyborgs, the Government of Darkness aka G.O.D. decided to up the ante. They created cyborgs made from what I can only assume to be the bio-matter of animals and infamous figures in history to try to do in the swashbuckling hero. At some point after failing a few times with stuff like Ant Capone, they decided to fuse a Starfish’s cells… with Adolf Hitler’s DNA. Thus Starfish Hitler was born!

Uses: To showcase that tokusatsu goes to weird places that even the fans cannot explain. To show how lovingly campy and goofy the Showa Era could get (despite X being one of the darker series in the franchise). A logic breaker. Showcase how overused and stock a villain type the Nazis are in fictional media and how silly this can get if not used properly in writing stories.


Meme #12

Catchphrases/Belt Sounds

Source: The Heisei Era Series

So many quotes from Riders and belts, so little time…

Insert Here:

Yes Rider fans! I want you to be a participant in this one to show the newcomers!

I’ll Start!

“DAI KAIGAN! OMEGA DRIVE!” (Ghost Driver-Kamen Rider Ghost)

The life you have taken…please return it to God!” (Kamen Rider Ixa -Kamen Rider Kiva)

“Rocket! Drill! LIMIT BREAK!” (Fourze Driver-Kamen Rider Fourze)

“Despair awaits you at the finish line…” (Kamen Rider Accel - Kamen RIder Double)

Edit: X is the 3rd series not 5th. Too much Turkey causes memory loss, don’t eat it.

my love’s the type of thing that you have to earn

and when you earn it, you won’t need it

because mac’s need for approval (especially from the main male figures in his life) makes my heart hurt. the way he models himself off of these figures too- he slicks his hair back and tries to be intimidating like his father, he creates his own dennis system (“i’m swimming in your wake”). i also have to wonder how much of his personality, or rather the personality he fails to have, is modeled after country mac’s. and of course, his ultimate need is for the ultimate Father to accept him.

mac tries to be a ‘monster’, tries to be feared, to be like his terrifying felon of a dad. but this ideal goes farther than that, as his vision of god is just as scary. (see this quote from sweet dee gets audited- “it’s supposed to be terrifying! that’s how you know god loves you.”) a father’s love, heaven or not, is fear.

in the gang saves the day his fantasy isn’t just, well, saving the day. after all the action movie stuff, it’s his friends seeing him be badass, him dying, dennis saying that he loves him/can’t live without him, and then going to heaven and getting a seat right next to god.

and as dennis and charlie discuss, the project badass videos are just another attempt to impress them. mac day has tons of examples of this as well, but the one that stands out to me the post is his immediate reaction after getting a point in the karate tournament. “guys, did you see that?! i got a point! i got a point!”

someone give this gay loser some unconditional, non-frightening love.

  • it’s a fiasco
  • they stand like 3 feet apart and refuse to look at each other 
  • shaw drinks a lot??? but never gets even close to being drunk. people are shaking their heads
  • they use crickets sound effects 
  • “im jealous” root tells the confession cam, then laughs at something said off camera “god no! i wanted the date card so i could ask shaw out myself”

  • root makes it her mission to get shaw to be her gf
  • she isn’t sure if you’re even allowed to be gay on this show
  • but root might be the one to figure that out
  • actually, this season they might have to change the rules because everyone seems to be gay
  • dani is eyeing harper
  • dani isn’t actually sure what she’s doing here
  • that’s a direct quote, she said it to the confession cam but they cut it out
  • can’t reveal the incompetence of their casting directors
  • and harper’s always up for a party
  • fusco might actually be the only one here to find true love
  • unfortunately he drinks one piña colada, falls asleep on the beach, and wakes up four hours later with a sunburn and the knowledge that they completed the rose ceremony without him
  • “next week on bachelor in paradise: root and shaw make use of the ‘fantasy suites,’ john trips over his own feet trying to impress finch, and leon tao gets introduced to mix it up. tune in at 8/7c on poi au for more bachelor in paradise”

Thursday Twitter Trends

I reached out to one of my friends who does social media management and marketing for one of the big players in the media industry to get her professional opinion on how we could make this the most successful campaign we could. These are the list of pointers both of us came up with, so please try to stick to them as closely as possible. It’s the only real way this will be transcend. 

WHAT/HOW TO TWEET:

  1. How many people tweet about something is just as important as the amount of tweets and hours the trend lasts. A trend can have 500,000 tweets but if it’s only 10,000 people talking about it, that’s not really impressive. My friend used her sources to figure out that during most the relevant social media hours for the show, The 100 only averages approximately 19,000 people tweeting. That’s not a lot even if the number of overall tweets and impressions seem much higher. When a social media manager looks at that it’s almost irrelevant. So, get your friends, families, co-workers, cousins, exes, or whoever owes you a solid to tweet at least once. This is vital. If the tweets are coming from different handles it shows an engaged audience. Let’s raise the number of tweet sources. It will make a difference. 
  2. Get friends from other fandoms and who care about LGBT causes involved. This stopped being about Clexa/Lexa a long time ago. Reach out to people you know loved Brittana, or Swan Queen, or Cophine, or Lost Girl, or that are just generally decent people and get them to join the tweetspree and/or social media presence for the movement. Engagement will be vital. 
  3. What we trend matters! “LGBT Fans Deserve Better” is a great message overall, but a great message is not what we want. It’s not poignant enough. People would see that around the world and not know what it’s about. It’s too vague and could relate to any event. That won’t affect JRot or the show in any way. So far this has been a PR disaster for Rottinhell & Co, but the network has gotten by relatively unscathed. We have to change that. Networks don’t want negative publicity so we need to take our voices to them because, ultimately they are the ones who decide. 
  4. The Blarkes are making this about them and are trying to undermine us as usual by trending #RenewThe100. Let’s not let them.

Taking all of this into consideration, we came up with what we think is The Tweet. The one that emcompasses all the goals we’re trying to achieve and which we think could have the most impact overall.

LGBT fans deserve better. Lexa deserved better. Our community deserved better. @TheCW #CWcancelThe1OO (that’s two capital O’s btw) 

An alternative hashtag could be: #CWcancelT1OO if people are really averse to even seeing the full name, but in either case we should decide which one we’re using before Thursday so we can come at it as a united front. [Edit: It’s been brought to my attention that it may be easier to trend things without a hashtag, so a third option would be “CW cancel The 1OO”. Decisions!]

Sure, if you want to be extra petty and salty (which I totally approve of) tack on #FTWD at the end of that, but what I just wrote seem to us like the guidelines for the core message of every tweet or series of tweets we put out on Thursday and for the rest of the season if we want this to have the possibility of making an impact. 

RULES ABOUT TWEETING/TRENDING:

  1. DO NOT, under any circumstance, write out the name of the show or use the official hashtag. 
  2. DO NOT be rude or aggressive. This is the easiest way to invalidate everything we’re trying to accomplish and could put a negative light on the movement. Be eloquent and kind with your words. Make your tweets as poignant as they can be in 140 characters. Show them they hurt us without turning us into jerks. Please.
  3. DO use the #CWcancelThe1OO hashtag! This is so important.
  4. DO tag the official @TheCW handle in any and all grievances you have in regards to the show. 
  5. DO tag advertisers when you tag @TheCW. The national ones are the most important but also figure out which advertisers are local to your state because things vary at state level. I know Sprint is one of their big national advertisers. We know Oprah and whatever PuppyMonkeyBaby are too. Tweet at them. If their local advertisers start showing concern or even consider pulling out and/or the national advertisers start calling them about the cause behind the ruckus they’ll start panicking a little. 
  6. DO remain active at least one hour before and after the airing of the episode. It’s the period social media managers and researchers find the most relevant in tallying numbers. 
  7. Keep Alycia out of the trends. I don’t believe they’re hurting her or her career, but this isn’t about her. Obviously you guys are free to do whatever, but I think it makes more of a difference if we focus on one thing. Right now what we should be focusing on is letting them know the purposeful decision to string along an audience and queerbait them will not be tolerated any longer. As much as we love Alycia, she isn’t part of that message.
  8. DO read these two amazing master posts about how to handle every other form of social media and outreach. I’m going to quote @barryspivot​ now:
    • GLEE STORY: If you’re not convinced this is going to work, listen up, my loves: Glee once reached 28 millions of viewers and at its worse it had 8-7 mlns. They called us angry lesbians, made one half of our OTP comment on the other with biphobic lines and Ryan Murphy said he was on Twitter ignoring Brittana tweets and drinking whine. Wanna know how low we dragged them? 1 million of views in Season 5. Wanna know what happened? FOX WASN’T SURE THEY WANTED TO RENEW IT AND MADE THEIR SEASON 6 WITH HALF THE EPISODES AND LESS THAN A MILLION OF VIEWERS. If we sank a FOX show that had reached 28 millions of viewers in Season 2, you can imagine what we can do the the barely 1-mln’ed the 1OO.

This boycott isn’t about a ship or us being irrationally petty over the death of a fictional character as I’ve seen some people imply. This isn’t the same thing as when the Blarkes threatened to boycott when the sex scene was confirmed. This stopped being about the show the moment this became an attack on an already marginalized community. This stopped being about the show when real people began suffering over being used and reduced to nothing more than numbers on a piece of paper. This stopped being about the show when we were utterly disrespected. 

Guys, this is a long game. This is about consistency. My friend drilled that into me when we spoke today. A trend one week doesn’t make a difference. Please remember that, but if we stay committed every Thursday from now until the end of the season they won’t be able to ignore us and the pain they caused when they walk into that boardroom to make renewal decisions. We may not get this show cancelled, but we sure as hell will make them consider it and we’ll turn this into a lesson for any and every other showrunner out there. We’re not here for this shit anymore.

Jus drein jus daun.

What is family? They were the people who claimed you. In good, in bad, in parts or in whole, they were the ones who showed up, who stayed there, regardless. It wasn’t just about blood relations or shared chromosomes, but something wider, bigger. We had many families over time. Our family of origin, the family we created, and the groups you moved through while all of this was happening: friends, lovers, sometimes even strangers. None of them perfect, and we couldn’t expect them to be. You can’t make any one person your world. The trick was to take what each could give you and build your world from it.

 ***I APOLOGIZE BEFORE HAND FOR LONG POST DUE TO BEING FULL OF FLUFF AND CHEESE

~~~

Yoosung: 

  • this puppy boy is so excited 
  • his favorite person in the world’s special day!! 
  • And he has been planning it for a while- the perfect day! 
  • He tells you a day before that you two will be going on a trip
  • He’ll actually have your backpacks and the car all packed with snacks, change of clothes, nintendo ds for the ride, and other little (secret surprise) things by the next morning 
  • Of course after making you a grand “Happy Birthday!” breakfast of all your favorite things (his omeletts have improved greatly), you guys will hit the road early 
  • “Where are we going?” 
  • “It’s a surprise!!” he’ll sing while bouncing in his seat 
  • this precious summerchild 
  • Unfortunately, halfway there, you guys run out of gas and the car breaks down 
  • He nearly cries, but you calm him down enough for you both to walk to the nearest exit and get gas
  • Sweaty from the walk, you’re at least two hours behind his planned schedule 
  • But he cheers up as you two start doing karaoke listening to the radio 
  • “Oppa Gangnam Style!”   sorry what is this 2014
  • Then, as you drive along the coast, you see it 
  • THE BIGGEST BOARDWALK AMUSEMENT PARK 
  • *both of you scream with excitement* 
  • You’ve been wanting to go since last summer, and here you are! 
  • He even bought special tickets for all the attractions and front-of-the-line passes (his bank account is officially dead)
  • You two are running around all day- challenging each other to who can last the longest on the UFO ride, laser tag, roller coaster screaming, and just messing around while having the best time 
  • at one point you guys ate too much cotton candy 
  • he of course also made lunch for you guys, so you sit out on the beach and enjoy a picnic of your favorite sandwiches and just chill 
  • when it starts to get dark, you guys get on the ferris wheel and watch the sunset (awwwwwwwwwww) 
  • After you guys had your fill of fun and are exhausted, he takes you back out onto the beach for a bonfire, all snuggled up in his hoodie and spare blankets listening to the ocean waves 
  • “MC, I have something for you.” he has a white box and a wrapped up package 
  • Ripping opening the package, you find a handmade and cute, geeky birthday day card that says “You fill up my hearts” with a LOLOL character design
  • and under it is the softest hoodie with your favorite quote on it 
  • You stare at it for so long without looking up that the poor boy starts to panic that you didn’t like it
  • “MC? Oh no! It’s too cheesy, isn’t it? If you want, we’ll go buy-” 
  • You turn to him with the biggest grin and nearly topple him with a tight hug, assuring him repeatedly that you love it 
  • You almost don’t trade wearing his for your new one at the moment, but of course he gives you the puppy eyes 
  • Almost forgetting the white box, he opens it to give you your birthday cake! Which he made himself and had put the message in icing-
  • “Happy Birthday, MC!!! I love you!” 

Zen: 

  • he is fretting 
  • while racking his brain- for the first time he cursed his blessed good looks for not having a matching blessed brain
  • First- it took him days to find you the perfect gift (he actually had to ask for a recommendation from the store worker)
  • And now-
  • Why can’t he think of anything special to do for his significant other?? Something that you’d enjoy??
  • He’d love to take you to one of his shows, but you’ve guys have already done that for too many dates 
  • Fancy restauraunt? No, too cliche. Movies? No no. Carnival? Nah. 
  • the poor albino has only Meh Ideas
  • He wants it to be fun and almost calls Seven “I only need an idea, I’m not that desperate.”  Yet.
  • It also needs to be equally romantic and not where his fans can interrupt your time… Candle-lit dinner? A picnic? 
  • He shakes his head, about to scratch that off and call Jaehee for advice, but then he thought- 
  • “Picnic in the moutains! And a cabin-! And-” 
  • *brain idea generator warmed up 
  • “We’re going camping?”   “Yes and more!” 
  • He already reserved a cabin and has packed everything you’ll need in the car 
  • You arrive late afternoon after getting lost for a few hours on the way
  • As soon as you unload your things for the weekend, he urges for a hike
  • “Zen, it might get late? Can’t we go tomorrow?”
  • “Don’t worry, MC. It’s all apart of your Zenny’s amazing surprise plan!” 
  • You follow along, skeptical, and getting tired pretty quickly as you make your way through the woods 
  • Then when you get to the end of the trail, you arrive at a high clearing just in time for the goregous finale of the sunset 
  • *romance intensifies 
  • “MC?” 
  • you turn around and you see that Zen has already set up a picnic, your meal surrounded by candles and scented flowers 
  • damn boy moves fast
  • He even lights up a fire for roasting marshmallows while you both talk and laugh for a while
  • Sings and plays his guitar for you (of course he’s good on almost any musical instrument) 
  • ridiculous campfire songs
  • Soon you both lie down to stargaze in awe, and he suddenly gives you a small case 
  • Opening it, you find a lovely gold necklace with both your names intertwined on its hanging star pendant
  • “Even after, we’ll be two stars together in the sky forever,” he kisses you as he gestures to the star-stitched sky above

Jaehee: 

  • this amazing woman has it all planned
  • Heck, she has a whole schedule 
  • And she was going to make the most of the day (jumin being fond of you, gave her the entire day off despite it being extremely busy at the company) 
  • First thing in the morning, she had you unwrap your birthday gifts in bed
  • the cutest outfit and matching scarfs for both of you (scarf twins!)
  • gal pals
  • a dorky harry potter mug that says “I’m a keeper” (don’t fight me on this, jaehee is a potterhead!!!)
  • and the latest Zen limited edition merch “Baehee, you shouldn’t have!”
  • Afterwards, you guys are ready for your day
  • 8:30 am- you went to your favorite breakfast place (yummy b-day pancakes)
  • 9:45 am- took the subway to the downtown area of the city (for once you don’t mind the traffic)
  • 10:15 am- Begins your day of sightseeing and exploring the city!
  • You two have never actually been to all the attractions and done any dates to the many places in the area 
  • “What exactly are we going to do?” “All the dates you ever wanted to do, mashed into one day.”
  • Baehee, you wonderful land mermaid 
  • It’s also a bit of a girls’ day- 
  • 10:30 am- you have an appointment at the salon and spa 
  • Both of you get a relaxing pedicure, nails and hair done, and just making yourselves beautiful 
  • Treat yo self
  • One of the places you go to is the new and huuuge bookstore you nerds have been so excited to see
  • You even visit a wax figure musuem (”I can’t wait for the day they make one of Zen”) and other wacky attractions (so many goofy touristy photos) 
  • You guys pretty much throw your schedule to the wind and just go exploring
  • You end up doing shopping for random cutesy stuff while wandering the street markets 
  • She even buys you a cute teddy bear key chain and teases “It looks so much like you!” 
  • For lunch, you guys head over to the commercial district and experience the foodie adventure to the max 
  • 3:28 pm- Taking the bus, you enjoy the sophisticated wonder of the musuems 
  • At one point, you see a painting of a half-naked redhead and notice the likeness of it to Seven and end up almost dying from laughter and having to retreat from the building before getting kicked out
  • You dared Jaehee to post the picture in the chatroom “Oh wow, 707, this is a new disguise”
  • and everyone just explodes (seven actually swears that will be his next costume)
  • For dinner, you get take-out and sit in a nearby park where a street performance is going on 
  • A man had a bucket and large bubble blowing stick, which kids all took turn using to make HUMONGOUS BUBBLES (this is really fun!)
  • “We have to try that!” you literally scream as you drag her there 
  • You admire and watch all the dancers and musicians when Jaehee waves two tickets in your face 
  • “We don’t want to miss Zen’s musical now, right?” 
  • Of course she had tickets 
  • After his performance, all three of you go to Dunkin’ Coffee as Zen’s treat 
  • This day keeps getting better and better, amright?
  • The evening was still early when you both invite Zen to your next stop- the bowling alley! 
  • (Jaehee obviously wins with the most strikes) 
  • It was getting late, and surprisingly Jaehee still had another place to take you to 
  • Ice-Skating Rink (my cliche heart)
  • You, being the less coordinated person, hold on to her the whole time
  • “Don’t worry, MC, I got you.”
  • when you get to the center of the ice rink, blushing Jaehee slips out a small box and paused to kneel
  • you nearly faint 
  • “MC, please hold this while I tie your laces.”  “Oh…oh sure.” (lmao) 
  • She stands up after tying the skating laces and smiles, “Open it up.” 
  • Inside the small box were two matching frienship bracelets 
  • “Happy Birthday, MC! We’ll always be each other’s happiness!” 
  • you nearly slip from that happiness

Jumin:

  • you had specifically told him you didn’t want anything big for your birthday 
  • of course he forgot 
  • And not just your request, but the actual occasion too
  • But that was because he was swamped with work and extremely busy with a new launch in his department 
  • And just a mere day before the special date- “Mr. Han, you wanted me to remind you just in case, that you have two flight tickets booked tomorrow after MC’s party. When exactly will you be leaving?” 
  • ??? 
  • Jaehee’s eyes widen- “Mr. Han you didn’t forget MC’s birthday tomorrow, did you? There’s a large party you had organized.” 
  • He nearly fell out of his chair 
  • “Tomorrow? As in her birthday is certainly tomorrow?!” 
  • For the time he broke office etiquette and let loose a loud sting of curses jaehee awkwardly closed the door 
  • “Assistant Kang! Agh I can’t believe I forgot, of all things! I don’t even have a gift-” 
  • “Sir, you already have the presents. They’re packaged and have been delivered to the location of the birthday party.” 
  • “Oh. That’s good. And where exactly-?”
  • “A reservation at the Grand Ballroom, tomorrow at 12:00 sharp.”
  • “Ah. That’s fine. And you said something about flight tickets? It doesn’t happen to be for our weekend trip, is it?” 
  • Jaehee readily filled him in (thank you baehee)
  • Early next morning- things started out wonderfully
  • Breakfast special in bed with strawberry pancakes for the birthday girl (Jumin serving them in *ahem cough* only wearing a plushy robe)
  • Cuddling in bed with Elizabeth 3rd 
  • “Ready for your birthday surprise?”
  • You were super excited to spend the day with him and was expecting a birthday party
  • but 
  • You didn’t think it was going to be a huge one with hundreds of guests…
  • Looking across the sea of people, you realize you barely know a tenth of these people-! And most of them you only recognized from company dinners and others as business partners 
  • Jumin is oblivious to your discomfort at being surrounded by so many strangers at something so personal
  • “Happy Birthday!!!” suddenly the RFA steal you away, all the members making the awkward event much better 
  • For the next hours, Seven and Yoosung keep you laughing at their jokes and antics while Jaehee and Zen help you stay cheerful with their lively conversations- all of them trying to distract you from the one person who should have been by your side 
  • Apparently this birthday party was more of a business social event, for Jumin was constantly meeting and talking with the other guests
  • At one point you were going to snap when you noticed all the women flocking around him 
  • The others must have caught on to how upset you were getting, for Jaehee suddenly returned with Jumin by her side 
  • “MC? Are you ready to leave?” 
  • Not trusting yourself to stay in control if you opened your mouth, you simply nodded before he quickly whisked you out through the back exit to avoid the paparazzi 
  • You stayed quiet through the drive trying to form your words without letting your anger get the best of you- 
  • Just when you were going to confront him, you noticed the car driving towards the airport
  • “Jumin? Where are we going?” you now forgot your anger 
  • “MC, I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the party. I understand how uncomfortable it was. But I promise your actual birthday surprise will be exceedingly better!” 
  • “Oh… actual? But where are we really going?” 
  • “Peux-tu deviner?” that’s French
  • “To France?!” your excitement makes him smile brightly
  • And sure enough, you two spend an enjoyable weekend trip in Paris 
  • Relaxing, luxurious days and romantic evenings
  • Exploring the beautiful sights and attractions, visiting museums and enjoying the classical cafes and fancy restaurants 
  • Obviously you beg him to take you to Disney World (what an amazing time you two had lol)
  • Jumin devotes all his time and attention to you (Elizabeth 3rd is staying at the company’s cat hotel)
  • And of course he had more gifts waiting for you 
  • “Jumin did you seriously buy me a villa here?!” 
  • “Yes, why not? It’ll be a lovely vacation home. I did of course attempt buying the Eiffel Tower, but the government refused selling a historical monument. It would have looked nice under your name.”

707:

  • honestly, you were a bit terrified with what he might have come up with this year for your birthday
  • *shudder* there was a year where he ordered several birthday cakes and pinatas as a prank- you had to find the one that wasn’t filled with insects or other creepy unpleasant things 
  • you say a quick prayer before getting out of bed in the morning 
  • And strange enough, the house was clean and very quiet 
  • too quiet
  • Your senses were alert as you looked for your little pepper boy all around the house
  • the place was empty 
  • but there was a note under a plate of breakfast 
  • Even more suspiciousSaeyoung doesn’t cook healthy meals?!
  • however the note said, 
  • “Happy Birthday Sleepyhead! If you want your special surprise gift- you have to find it yourself on a scavenger hunt! I’ll meet you on the way, so here’s the first clue- What’s 6ft tall, cold and gray, and almost married to the (2nd) most goregous being in the world? Tom btw will be waiting outside to drive you! Have a good breakfast and good luck MC! ~707
  • You were excited, because wow this actually sounds fun
  • It was a surprisingly good meal, and after hoping there’s no weird chemicals or some wacky microbotic insects in it, you set off
  • Sure enough, Tom was outside in his simple car and you tell him directly to go to the C&R building 
  • the first clue was obviously Jumin Han (wonder what he bribed him with to help)
  • When you arrived at the receptionist, you were surprised to find Jaehee already waiting to take you up to Jumin’s office 
  • “MC, good morning. I see you’re here for Luciel’s clue.” he then handed you an envelope with a zoo ticket pass
  • your phone vibrates and you see a text message from Seven:
  • “Good you knew Elly was 2nd to you in my world! Cool, next clue- this animal is closely related to the lovely Elly, equally majestic but with the opposite color. Can you guess which kitty this is? ~God Seven” 
  • You thank both Jumin and Jaehee before returning down to Tom’s car
  • Obviously the ticket indicates you having to go to the zoo, and the animal must be a big cat…
  • Once you arrive and grab a map at the animal park, you quickly realize the animal is a black panther! 
  • Off you go hunting for its habitat, and show up to watch the goregous black leopard lounging 
  • You look around, wondering what exactly you have to do next when-
  • “Hello. Are you MC?” a zookeeper taps your shoulder and once you confirm it, tells you to follow
  • “Oh, okay…” you say as she leads you around to a hidden ‘Authorized Personnel Only’ door 
  • “It’s feeding time, so you’ll be able to go in and retrieve what you need,” the zookeeper explains as she takes you to the back door of the panther habitat and proceeds preparing to open the gate 
  • “Wait. WHAT?! I HAVE TO GO IN THERE?!” you should’ve known Seven would have something like this prepared….
  • The zookpeeper continues to assure you that’s fine, even pointing out the white envelope tucked near the roots of the large forest tree…
  • You pray to the heavens, and if you die curse Seven a 100-fold before carefully following the zookeeper’s instructions
  • After several life-terrifying moments, you somehow have the envelope in your shaking hand and walk jitterly out of the zoo
  • Seven, being the brillant hacker he is, was likely keeping an eye on your progress
  • Your phone instantly vibrates with the next text: 
  • “Wow babe! You’re a wild one! Haha…don’t be mad at me…uhm so I guessing that wasn’t as fun. Your next clue is fun for sure!- If you can guess already, it’s what we ate on our first date! I’m sure this clue will be easy enough!”
  • Remembering to open the envelope, you find a folded popcorn bag with the logo of a popular popcorn-maker store at the mall 
  • Tom happily joins in search of the shop- you both nearly drool at the amazing selection of popcorn. There’s rainbow colored popcorn, blueberry flavored, and just soo much more in variety (btw I’ve been to an actual place like this) 
  • Focusing on your task, you quickly find the shelve of honey carmel popcorn- the exact kind you guys had on your first date when going to the movies
  • “Surprise!” a redhead suddenly pops out from behind it
  • He tackles you into a hug before handing you a chocolate covered apple
  • Of course, after accepting the sweet treat, you punch him “That’s for endangering my life!” 
  • “Aw, come on MC! How would I ever dare do that? I made sure you were safe, I was there all along!”  he’d had special security/safety arrangements just in case anything occured 
  • “Now, are you ready for the next clue?” he gestures to the shelve 
  • Behind the rows of popcorn bags, you find another envelope
  • Inside it was a page from a superhero comicbook 
  • You instantly knew where to go next, both of you grinning as you moved to leave 
  • “Thanks Tom!” you both say, Seven adding that he can buy as much as popcorn he wants for payment 
  • From there, Seven drives you (obviously in one of his babies) to the large comicbook store for the next clue
  • After a game of hide-in-seek (I, Seven-Zero-Seven, Defender of Justice, shall find the villanious MC!), you eventually find the matching page for the comic 
  • “The Magician” was the title and you racked your brain before you remembered a costume shop near the pier with that very name
  • When you arrive, you both have a game of dressing-up (you as a king and him as a cross-dressing joker) until you find another envelope hidden in the pocket of your cape
  • Inside is a unlimited token card for an arcade with a prize number
  • “Your majesty, your carriage awaits you for conquering!”
  • You spend nearly three hours winning games and gathering tickets in your crazy costumes before cashing in to get a giant teddy bear holding another envelope 
  • For the rest of evening, you two are running around finding clues all the while having the best time together (you guys almost get arrested)
  • You guys even stop at several food places for birthday specials and discounts (you literally had at least 3 birthday cakes today)
  • Finally, you come to the last clue- several numbers written on a slip of paper
  • “Hmm…these look like coordinate numbers…” 
  • Like before, Seven simply smiled and didn’t answer whether you were right or wrong
  • “Pull over to that gas station, I’m going to get a map and check!”
  • Sure enough, you found the location- it was outside the city somewhere
  • When you return to the car, you find that Seven had unlocked the trunk and was stuffing balloons into the interior of the car
  • “What are you doing?!”  
  • *literally throws confetti at you* “MC! Congrats on finding the last clue! Now you can receive your AMAZING, FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY PRESENT! Do you like them?” 
  • They were all birthday balloons, but you burst out laughing once you could see the images on them 
  • Some had your actual face on them, while others had cats and ridiculous memes- you didn’t expect less from 707 
  • As you put the coordinates into the GPS, you guys drive out of the city
  • Snacking a lot on honey buddha chips, Ph.D. Pepper, and all sorts of junk food while singing with the radio- you two were having quite the time
  • But the further away you got from the city and crowded highway, the quieter and somber Seven grew 
  • You both are obviously tired, but there’s still layer of anticipation 
  • After an hour, you pull up to a field in the middle of nowhere
  • “You aren’t going to murder and bury me here, are you?” 
  • he snickers, “Well if I do, I’m glad we made some good memories!”
  • He asks you to get out of the car, and you watch as he spreads a blanket across his precious sports car’s hood 
  • It’s dark except for the bright headlights of the car 
  • He then invites you to join him and as you curl up next to him, you realize how exhausted you are
  • “Okay, ready?” he suddenly asks
  • You aren’t sure for what, but you nod anyways
  • With his car keys, the headlights turned off
  • You were swallowed up by a darkness
  • But then, the thousands of stars above suddenly lit up the sky
  • You were awestruck- your eyes not quite believing the world around you 
  • Saeyoung chuckled quietly as he smiled at your reaction 
  • omg this beautiful boy
  • Pulling you into his arms and lying down with your head on his chest, you two admire the goregous sky 
  • Then with another click of his car keys, the car hood lowers and tens of the balloons in the car float high up into the dark sky
  • They all are dark shapes as they disappear above
  • “Let’s marry at a space station,” he whispers to you, before slipping a laser pointer into your hand and guiding it up using the red streak to point out star constellations 
  • He spelled out ‘Happy Birthday’ using the red lazer
  • You smiled, “One day, let’s.” 
  • For the rest of the night, you blissfully stargazed

V:

  • he was at a loss of what to do
  • you deserved the best, but he knew he wasn’t able to do that for you (stop hurting yourself precious blue boy)
  • Yet, he was more than willing to try
  • It was your special day, so who better to ask than you 
  • “Oh, anything really! I don’t mind if we don’t do nothing anyways.” 
  • “It’s your birthday, how can you expect me not to do anything for you?”
  • “Oh, fine then. Anything simple, like what we do for dates!”
  • Something simple wasn’t much to work on, but he was creative enough and loved you dearly 
  • He had already a gift ready for you, he’d been working on it for so long (although you’d prefer him doing something about his injury to anything else)
  • So for your birthday breakfast, he set out early to the bakery to get you your favorite morning pasteries (thankfully he came back before you could start worrying)
  • he gives you a bouquet of flowers when you come downstairs and kisses you “Good morning, birthday girl.”  awwwwww
  • together you made breakfast in pajamas with the radio tuned on and enjoyed your lovely meal out on the patio surrounded by your plants
  • it was peaceful and you two spent most of the warm and sunny morning chatting about everything happening these days 
  • Then you two went for a stroll in the park where you both watched the lively people spending their day in activity 
  • You two loved people watching, especially as V helped you learn to take pictures of the world around you 
  • You would tell him what you see “There’s a group of children playing tag on the playground…haha a cute brown dog chasing a tennis ball… And ooh a family flying kites!” 
  • He obviously caught your excited tone and suggested that you two should go buy a kite and fly it 
  • Sure enough, V helpes you get the paper blue kite up and you both laugh at the attempts you make before finally finding a good wind on top of a sloping hill 
  • he tried helping by running and launching it since he was tall, but he almost ended up breaking his neck (no V you’re blind and that’s dangerous)
  • Afterwards, you two hang out at a cafe where you drink your coffee and enjoy reading some books together (his of course is in braille) 
  • Taking your drinks, you eventually wander out to the nearby woods
  • More pictures of nature (he also sneaks some when you’re busy picking flowers)
  • “Smile, MC!”   “V, that’s a tree- I’m over here.”
  • He actually collects a bouquet of wildflowers for you (some of them are weeds by accident) 
  • Since the seasons are in the middle of changing, autumn just arriving, there are mounds of already fallen leaves 
  • You two make a large pile of the scattered leaves and jump into, making a bed as you giggle and cuddle on the forest floor 
  • “v, don’t move-! There’s a huge-ass beetle on you!”
  • Eventually you get back home, where he surprises you more with a homemade candle-lit dinner and your favorite ice-cream cake 
  • You both sit in the living room to enjoy your birthday cake and unwrap your gift
  • Carefully undoing the ribbon and not wanting to rip his carefully wrapped paper, you gasp as you hold a photo album 
  • Not able to see your face, he wasn’t sure whether your gasp was a good sign or not 
  • “MC?”   this heartbreaking teal boy 
  • “I love it! I will cherish this forever” you say to him with tears as you flip through pages of pictures, most are of you, when before his eyesight is at its worse now, others taken with the RFA members 
  • Lots were of the group messing around at meet-ups and when hanging out (there was an incredible one of Seven laughing so hard, Ph.D. Pepper shot out his nose)
  • Your favorites are the ones of just the two of you together
  • You thank him and hug him fiercly, trying to assure him that you truly love him no matter what 
  • Just as you were cuddling on the couch together, eating while watching a movie, he suddenly takes a deep breath and gets your attention
  • “I have one more present for you. It’s a surprise…” 
  • he then finds your hand and carefully places a folded paper in it
  • “What is it?” you read it and then you freeze 
  • You don’t quite believe your eyes 
  • He softly smiles before kissing you, “I’ve decided that you are the light of my life, and I need to see you if I want to give you the best you deserve.”
  • the paper had the appointment date for his eye surgery

[Thank you for reading this super long post! Haha sorry for the length, but I was just having so much fun. I need to write one-shot fanfics for these lolol    

Requests are open on my blog!

Luke. [beauty blogger]

[italics = in video, normal font = edited out]

“So…” You sat in front of your camera, taking a deep breath. You’ve announced a lot to your 2 million (& counting) subscribers for the past four years, but for some reason, this was the most nervous you’ve been recording a video in a long time.

“This isn’t a normal video, as you can tell by the title I have something to tell you and I feel like I’m going to ramble a lot and have to edit this a lot but it’s finally time I want to tell you and can tell you. But a lot of you have figured it out or have at least speculated it and it wasn’t that I was keeping a secret from you I was just choosing not to share that part of my life with you for a moment…” You paused, “More than a moment, more like almost a year really.” 

You thought to yourself that it had almost been eleven months and you couldn’t believe it. Couldn’t believe you kept a relationship that long but also can’t believe you kept it from your subscribers from that long.

“I’m not even going to stray from it or lead up to it and make you guys wait I’m just going to say it. I have a boyfriend.” You smiled and shrugged your shoulders. “I’ve known him for over a year but we went on our first date, I guess you could call it that, about a year ago and from then on… ya know. He is the best person in the world, aside from my deep love of Mariska Hargitay she is always the best, he makes me very happy and just.. yeah, we’re dating.” You smiled to yourself, a weight off your shoulders.

“I’ve hidden him from my vlogs, had to do so much editing to make sure he wasn’t shown, I haven’t mentioned him in any videos– wait, I did go to his show and I vlogged but I made it seem like I just casually went to the show, oops. I just didn’t want to shove a camera in his face more than there already is.” 

You took a deep breath, keeping yourself on track. “The tricky part of this situation is the fact that he is in a well-known band that has paparazzi waiting for them everywhere they go in LA. So… I have been photographed with him, his family, his bandmates, his friends and you all are very smart and have slowly put it together and figured it out. And I want to thank you all for being so pleasant about it and not digging deeper and accusing me of things because trust me, it’s so hard not to put chunks of vlog of him in when he’s the only one with me all day.” 

You laughed to yourself thinking of when you needed 10 minutes of vlog but after cutting him out of all of the clips, editing his laugh out, or making sure his arm wasn’t wrapped around you on the couch you would end up with 4 minutes of useable footage. 

“This doesn’t mean I will be constantly vlogging with him now or having him do videos with me or following him around with a camera. It just means if I make cupcakes one night and he’s there I’ll probably leave some clips of him in so I don’t look like a maniac laughing to myself for no reason like I did in my vlog about purple cupcakes. Watch it now knowing he was there and I don’t look near as crazy as I do when people think I’m alone.” 

Your phone vibrated on the counter in front of you, you could see it was a text from him but you wanted to finish the video and get it edited before you went to sleep. 

“I am so relieved to tell you guys this, it’s going to make my life so much easier and my anxiety of accidentally missing his reflection in the window of a car during a vlog will decrease by a lot. This doesn’t change my videos. You’ll still get uploads on Mondays and vlogs on Thursda–” 

Your facetime started going off and you gave in and picked up. “Luke, I’m trying to film a video about you.” 

“Nice to see you too, babe.” He laughed, “Just wanted to make sure you’re getting me at the airport?” 

“Your on flight 1293 and it lands at eleven forty-five at LAX. I’ll be there. In my pajamas.” 

“Yes and… are you filming?” He squinted at the screen of his phone. 

“Yes the video about you. I’ve said everything but goodbye but someone interrupted me.” You glared at him, “How about you introduce yourself and say goodbye? Because I haven’t said your name at all.”

“You’ve made a whole video about me but haven’t said my name?” He laughed.

“It’s weird to have to announce to a camera ‘I’m dating Luke Hemmings’” You cringed just saying it to yourself, “I’m dating Luke HamHam.” 

“Turn me to the camera.” He said, pushing his hair back before putting a snapback on. You positioned him close to the camera and made sure it was focused. “Hiiiii I’m Luke. Thanks for watching my girlfriend’s videos. She posts new ones every Monday and vlogs on Thursdays. Make sure you comment about something and also subscribe. Have a stellar day, guys! Bye!” He perfectly quoted your outro before hanging up his facetime call. 

You pulled your phone down and looked at your camera with the biggest smile on your face, “Have a stellar day, guys! Bye!”

On The Blacklist Season 3...

After all these pictures, promos, previews, interviews, and quotes, it’s safe to say that I have mixed feelings about the upcoming third season of The Blacklist. Firstly, the pics, promos, and previews look awesome and full of Lizzington and Red and Liz cuteness. But on the other hand, these interviews and quotes from various members of TPTB are disturbing to me as a Lizzington shipper. First, there was the season 2 commentary which I tried to ignore because I figured it could very well be outdated content and not matter at all. Then there was the Daniel Knauf scandal but that guy is apparently a jerk so whatever. But now there’s the season 3 exclusive whatever where John Eisendrath says Red and Lizzie have an “odd father/daughter relationship”. Okay. Buckle up buttercup, this is about to get sassy.

Quick StormPilot fic rec

I have another set of fic recs that will come out today or tomorrow, but this fic I just read was so wonderful I figured I’d give a taste of what’s to come.  This fic will be rerecced in my coming up post.

Edit: here’s the link to that new set: http://malihh.tumblr.com/post/136947575904/yet-more-stormpilot-fic-recs

Supernova Tonight

http://archiveofourown.org/works/5596270

This beautifully written long fic (nearly 10K words) is probably one of my favorites right now.  Finn dealing with the effects of growing up a storm trooper, Poe dealing with helping him.  It follows Poe’s perspective throughout this, figuring out how not to speak without thinking so as to help Finn as much as possible, things like that.  There’s so many paragraphs I could pull to quote, but here’s a few that made me fall more in love with this fic towards the beginning of it.

It is rated Explicit, as it does have a few smutty scenes, but if that’s not your thing the story is still worth reading as the vast majority is
