he was such a perfectionist

Harry Styles’ new album is going to be earth-shattering. Harry is a perfectionist as we all know. He would never settle for less than a completely new innovation. He is honing his skills as a musician in order to be able to produce something beyond expectations. Judging from his widely varied collaborators, this album may very well define what music in this new century should sound like.

Harry Styles’ new album is going to shock the world. That is what fans need to hear. This album is going to be better than what music fans have become all too accustomed to. This isn’t some prefabricated formula for songwriting. It isn’t going to be something five young boys had to rush through with three months to write and record. Harry is stepping as far away from that kind of writing as possible to give fans the music they deserve.

Concept: laurent, having learnt a bunch of romantic words and sayings in akielon, earnestly telling damen in a private moment how much he loves him in his language since he knows that his words will be even more meaningful to him, but he’s a bit nervous and he’s blushing and he messes up, the grammar is not quite right, not like he practiced, so he shakes his head once a bit frustrated with himself (bc my son is a perfectionist) but then he looks up and damen is grinning and looking at him like he’s the cutest thing ever with SO MUCH LOVE IN his eyes oMGG!!!

we’ve seen yoongi cry the first time when he announced about wanting to be with armys for 10+ years. then we see him cry the second time when he found the seats of where his parents sat, whereas he bowed, and stayed down for so long to cry. and today, we see him cry again because hard work with his brothers paid off well. 

yoongi may appear stone cold or expressionless at times, but he’s such a dorky goofy turtle ball of life. people tend to forget he’s the down low sunshine of bangtan that we tend to pick him on about quickly whenever he’s being cute with them. he takes such great care of each member without trying to look like it, and flusters in low-key mode whenever he is praised for it.

and to be frank, i’ve never seen him glow so much than he has after his perfectionist self released his hard working mixtape, and received his fluffy wonderful love, min holly. it’s as though he has found love and is falling deeply with it. 

from today onwards, i cant wait to hear more from Genius Min.

“There’s this story, actually, that Quincy told me years ago. And what said is that Michael had the ability to come in, he could lay down the lead vocal of a track. And then he could sit there, listen, just put the time in and figure out where all the harmonies should go. And then do that, not leave until he had the harmonies right.”~Nelson George

Late night cuddling (Jihoon)

with Christmas coming up, the upcoming week will unfortunately be even more inactive, but!! we’re working on something nice for you guys for the weekend, which will hopefully make the inactivity worth it ;u; I’ll still see if I could get one or more of these out during the week - who wouldn’t love a cuddly Seokmin? ♥

  • it wouldn’t exactly be rare for him to come home late - being a diligent worker and a perfectionist, he hardly ever wants to leave the studio until he’s absolutely satisfied with his work
  • that night is one of those, with him coming home between 2am and 3am while you are already fast asleep, have been for a few hours
  • he’d be tired beyond belief, so he gets to bed as quickly as he can, taking off some of his clothes on his way
  • once he’s in and under the duvet, he lets out a deep breath, almost a sigh, and allows his eyes to finally close as he gets closer to you and wraps his arm around you gently, his nose nuzzling into the back of your neck
  • “Good night,” he’d mumble, out of habit and mostly to himself, but he’s surprised to feel you stirring a little
  • “Jihoon?”
  • he’d smile at your voice, barely even audible, and feels your hand cover his near your stomach
  • “Yeah, I’m here. Sorry if I woke you up.”
  • you’d shake your head a little and yawn loudly
  • “Nah, I’m just… always waiting for you.”
  • Jihoon would bite on his lip a little, feeling a pang of guilt in his heart as he holds you a bit tighter
  • “I’m sorry.”
  • even through your half-asleep haze, you shake your head
  • there’s so many unsaid things in the air - you understand him; you don’t blame him; he doesn’t need to be sorry; he still is sorry - but you sum them into three words
  • “I love you.”
  • he’d be smiling, but his eyes would be almost watering with how emotional the exhaustion, late hours and his own feelings are making him
  • he kisses the back of your neck gently and whispers you that he loves you, and you fall back asleep with a serene smile on your lips, feeling much more at peace than when you had fallen asleep for the first time that night
  • because with Jihoon by your side, everything is better

Why Dan will propose:

🌹No matter what, Phil will always be the one who is waiting to make sure Dan is comfortable. He wouldn’t want to do anything without knowing for sure that Dan wants it, so Dan will be the one to take the huge step and propose to Phil.

🌹Let’s be real, Dan is such a perfectionist he’s probably already had a speech written for years that he knows by heart, even though he knows he’ll forget it all when he gets down on one knee and looks up at the man that he considers to be his entire world.

🌹Dan has always been the one who has been afraid of being close to Phil in public. Him proposing will be the most beautiful way of showing that he isn’t scared anymore.

🌹2016 was a year of Dan becoming comfortable with himself and showing who he really is to the world. The only logical conclusion to such an iconic year for his confidence is for him to take the leap and decide to start this next part of his life with Phil.

🌹Dan is and always will be a romantic sap that feels the need to show the world how obsessed he is with Phil.

🌹Last but not least, it’s no secret that Dan wants to show the world that THE Phil Lester is his, and proposing to him is the greatest way to do that.

Best Friend Series; Woozi/Jihoon

- you met jihoon in high school and you’ve been best friends ever since
- you already knew about him but you never talked to him
- jihoon was known as that gifted kid like he gets straight a’s and wins all the awards in almost every category because he’s super hard-working and a perfectionist
- everyone’s intimidated by him because all he does is work and since he hardly talks people get the wrong impression and label him as cold and snobby
- one day you were looking for a quiet place to study after classes
- the library’s full and your house is loud and like a bunch of classrooms are occupied for club meetings and stuff like that
- you give up searching in that building because it’s always filled with people so you’re like i’ll just go to the other building then it’s a long walk but wtvr as long as you get studying done right
- when you reach that building you’re twisting every doorknob to see if any aren’t locked when you hear BEAUTIFUL piano playing and you’re like??? who’s playing that???

- he never wears mittens in the winter and you’re like “jihoon i will break your fingers YOU PLAY INSTRUMENTS YOU HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HANDS”

- finally finishes composing adore u and performs an acoustic version of it on your birthday
- “AW JIHOON I ADORE U TOO”
- “oh shut up”

Original!Graves/Credence Headcanons

-First of all, Credence is alive and Graves has been hidden a la Moody in a trunk or something somewhere.

-Tina finds O!Graves (hereafter referred to simply as “Graves”) and updates him on everything that went down while he was… indisposed.

-Graves is not a kind man. He’s stern and expects nothing less than 110% at all times. He’s a perfectionist, a workaholic, and solitary by nature. But Graves, the real Graves, is also the kind of man that feeds the cat that hangs around in the winter, all the while refusing to say he’s adopted it (the cat makes its way indoors one day and just… never leaves. Graves calls him Walter until he finds out it’s actually a girl and by then the name has stuck, so he still calls her Walter). Graves is also the kind of man that sends donations to children’s orphanages and visits his elderly grandmother at least once a month. He’s short with his aurors, but patient with the children that run through his street, shrieking and laughing.

-So, when Graves finds out about what Grindelwald did to Credence while wearing his face, he’s angry and disgusted, but mostly he’s worried about the younger man.

-He visits Credence in the little hospital ward they’re keeping him in while he’s recovering down the way in his own hospital room. He’d first thought Credence wouldn’t want anything to do with him, but that proves untrue upon their first visit. Credence is shy and still afraid, but Graves shows him proof that he’s himself.

-They bond over the things Grindelwald took from them (and a shared love of chocolates which Graves will deny to his dying breath.

-It takes a few visits, but eventually he gets Credence into the habit of just calling him “Graves” instead of “Mr. Graves” or “sir”. He also teaches him chess - no-maj chess, that is; wizard chess is a bit too violent for Credence’s tastes. After a month of practice, Credence is good enough to beat Graves soundly, but Graves always knew that would be the case (despite the education withheld from him, Credence is sharp as a tack and has a mind for strategy. Graves privately thinks he’d make an excellent auror).

-Little by little, Credence warns up to Graves, telling him about his fears and hopes, all the while desperately hoping that this Graves won’t turn around and throw it in his face like the last one did. He’s always cautious, always wary of saying too much, of giving the man something to use against him, but Graves doesn’t take advantage and asks nothing of him (something Grindelwald had no problem with).

-When Graves is released two months later, having been completely healed and nourished back to his old self, he keeps visiting Credence as often as his work permits. There are stacks upon stacks of paperwork waiting at MACUSA, but sometimes he’ll slip a stack into the hospital and finish it by Credence’s bedside.

-When the time comes for Credence’s trial at MACUSA, Graves argues relentlessly for him to be held unaccountable for his actions. And when the jury determines that Credence should only be released on condition of being in someone’s care, Graves nudges Tina into offering. He’d offer himself, but he’s beginning to think that a mentoring relationship is not the kind of relationship he wants with the younger man, so it would hardly be appropriate.

-Tina and Queenie take Credence in and move to a little apartment above a bakery with tasty - if odd - pastries that Graves falls a little bit in love with.

-Graves still comes over to play chess with Credence. He pointedly ignores Tina’s exasperated (and Queenie’s knowing) looks.

-When summer comes, Graves takes Credence on walks through Central Park and teaches him as much history of magic as he can remember from school. He buys Credence ice cream (despite his multiple protests) and quietly wonders if this could be considered a first date.

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA #3 PROCESS SKETCHES: PHANTOM

I probably have done more sketches for him compared to the other characters (omg and these sketches are so old!). I originally wanted to give him more of a ‘serpent’ look with lots of curves and Jafar+Al Hirschfeld hand. Soon I noticed it was hard to define his design next to Raoul, who had lots of round lines. So in order to emphasize the ‘sinister’ side of my version of the Phantom, I gave him more straight lines with skinny, clean cut body shape. Everything will fit perfectly on him (which made me change his ascot design too later) since he is a perfectionist, who can’t stand the fact that half of his face is ‘imperfect’.

Seventeen Doing Your Makeup

S. Coups: actually knows what he’s doing. There might be minor mistakes but overall he would do a pretty good job.
Jeonghan: he would be very fussy and tell you to hold still since he doesn’t want to mess up and make you look bad.
Joshua: he would follow the makeup tutorial step by step and surprisingly (or not) did a good job.
Jun: he knew where lipstick and eye makeup went; from there it became a catastrophe.
Hoshi: uses eyeshadow as contour, uses foundation 5 times lighter than your actual skin colour; a tragic trainwreck.
Wonwoo: even though he tried really hard, the outcome wouldn’t be perfect, but the effort he put into it was cute.
Woozi: being the perfectionist he is, he would keep removing the makeup if he kept messing up. He wouldn’t stop until he was happy with it.
DK: starts doodling all over your face with eyeliner, not actually doing your makeup.
Mingyu: accidentally pokes you in the eye with eyeliner causing you to go temporarily blind.
The8: would lots of obscene imagery on your face, then laugh as he removed it and try to do it properly. 
Seungkwan: he would act like he knew what he was doing, but let’s just say he will never be allowed near makeup again.
Vernon: is the cause of the next clown sighting.
Dino: he would purposely do the makeup badly since he knows he can’t actually do makeup.

Why Viktor and Yūri are Amazing

Now I can tell you all the reasons why these two are amazing by stating the obvious facts: they’re the first homosexual couple I’ve ever seen (and I think the whole world has ever seen) in an anime that is NOT classified under “yaoi”. They’re amazing because they’ve made figure skating much more of a “trend”, they’re amazing because they got a real figure skater to love them, they’re amazing because THEY’RE CANON!!! But I will tell you other reasons why they’re amazing.
Let’s start with Yūri.

1. Yūri has anxiety

First: Yūri has anxiety. It’s more obvious in earlier episodes, first of all, the fact that he goes into the bathroom and cries is obvious, he’s obsessive, he’s a bit of a perfectionist and he has no confidence in himself. Even as that goes away, he still does his warm-ups away from everyone else. He and Viktor had to escape to the basement/parking lot during the China Skate because hearing and seeing the other skaters was making him anxious and Viktor had to cover his ears and tell him not to listen to them. Yūri has anxiety and this fact makes me love him.

2. Yūri was overweight

It’s stated at the beginning that Yūri gains weight easily and he gained quite a bit of weight during his time away from home, “letting himself go” as they put it. This is an obstacle he has to overcome because figure skaters are expected to have a certain body type, one that he lost during his eating. It means he’s not immune to human problems. Yes, he’s got a perfect body now, but if Yūri ever lets himself go again, he can easily regain that weight and that also makes him relatable, that his weight was an issue, that Viktor refused to let him skate until he was back to his old weight, that MATTERS.

3. Yūri’s feet are disgusting.

It’s seen in a montage during Yūri’s training that when he takes off his skates, his feet are all beat up and full of bruises and cuts. That’s realism, that’s what happens when you train and work hard and push your body to its limits, there are ramifications on your body and you don’t always look perfect.

4. Yūri’s feminine

Before his “battle” with Yūrio for Viktor at the Hot Springs, he asks Minako to teach him to be feminine. He sees a story in Eros and he understands that the role Viktor plays is not the role he plays in its telling. He’s able to put aside his pride and ask to be taught to be more like a woman in order to seduce, something that most people would not admit, nor would they go so far as to ask someone else for help in it. It shows how badly he wants Viktor to help him, for Viktor to coach him. On top of that, Yuri has been doing ballet for a long time before the show’s current time-line.

5. Yūri gets embarrassed 

From the way he admits that his Eros is food to when he’s trying to take down all his posters of Viktor, Yūri is an honest to God person who can be embarrassed and it shows.

Now why is Viktor amazing? 

 1. Viktor cannot go back to Russia

If, we’re assuming that Russia maintains its views on homosexuality, Viktor, if he goes back to Russia after this Grand Prix, will not be considered a good skater anymore, he’ll be looked down upon, possibly hated because of the way that Russia views homosexuality. The LGBTQ rights in Russia are less than perfect. 

2. Viktor has been hiding himself for years 

We can say that Viktor didn’t love anyone in most of his years because he stated it himself, the last twenty years have been about skating, but what if it’s more than that? What if it’s because he’s gay? As mentioned before, Russia has very severe LGBTQ laws that are more than a little bit harsh, and discriminatory. He’s able to be the way he is, still so carefree, and yet he’s been forced to hide himself for years and pretend to be something he’s not.

3. Viktor had long hair

Viktor explains to Yuri that during the time he was 16, and he performed, he had long hair and so his costume (the one Yuri wears for Eros) is made to incoorporate both genders, in order to go along with his long hair. Viktor now has a shorter hair style, but the fact of the matter is, he let it grow out. He allows himself to be put in a rather feminine light.

4. Viktor does not know how to coach

Viktor is called a coach by many, but he doesn’t know the first thing about it. He’s clueless on the matter, he’s always been coached. Sure, he’s taught himself and made his own programs, but what does Viktor really know about coaching? It’s mentioned in his own personality/biography that he doesn’t know how to coach anyone properly and it’s the way he “coaches” Yuri that shows the difference. He takes teaching methods from other people, but he’s not perfect, he’s flawed, he doesn’t know how he’s supposed to be a real coach and that’s realistic, for someone like Viktor.

5. Viktor’s nose is red

This might be a bit weird to say, but it’s nice. That it’s obvious that you get cold, that you get a red nose from the cold, he’s not immune to the cold. Even though in episode 11 you can see him on the rink wearing shorts, at the same time he’s still cold, and his nose is almost perpetually red. 

WHY THEY’RE AMAZING TOGETHER

I’m not just talking because they’re a canon gay relationship, I’m saying this because of the way the show treats them. In a country like China, or Russia, the type of reaction the public would have towards a gay couple is not the reaction that’s shown, that’s true, but it acts as if it’s normal, which, in an ideal, perfect world, that’s what it should be.

Furthremore in general, Yuri!!! On Ice is much deeper than it appears, with the way the intro song is a reflection on Yuri’s personality, Viktor’s encouragement and Yurio’s hopes for his future career in skating, the way everything ties together nicely, everything about this anime is appealing, for reasons other than that it made our favorite pairing canon.

Yuri!!! on Ice is a masterpiece, in animation, in story telling and in character developement.

What a choice to begin the outtakes video

It’s interesting that he considers a voice crack, which is a direct result of how much work he was doing at the time and is out of his control, a “fuck-up”. Like it is an avoidable mistake that ruined his video. A subconscious invitation for people to “not care” about the rest of his video. While I don’t personally consider it one, I can understand that from his perspective though– he is a slight perfectionist from what I can tell, so of course he would want his intro to not have any hiccups (or voice cracks). Add that on top of his reaction to people constantly pointing it out…

I’m not a YouTuber myself, so I never really considered how much thought goes into ensuring the “constants” of every video (ie. intro and outro) remain…well, constant. Maybe I’m way off base, but to me, the theory is that if the main variable that changes between videos is the actual content itself, that’s what people will tend to focus on, instead of losing all attention and concentrating on something unrelated. The aim to direct focus to the videos’ varying content, not the bookends that exist in every one. This doesn’t apply to every viewer obviously (it may not even apply to any), not going to make generalizations, but I can see why, from his perspective as a creator, this could possibly be a motivating factor behind maintaining consistency in those areas. But I’m not him, so I don’t really know. 

He has uploaded videos where he’s kept in outros that were “different” (I use that term only to mean they don’t go like they usually do), and I love that he does (he doesn’t need to have perfect intros and outros for me), but I realize that is rarer for him to keep in intros like that. It is far more awkward to redo the outro than the intro, so maybe that’s why…

I don’t know, this part of the video got me thinking.
