what I find funny is that shouri is AWKWARD AF at photoshoots bc he fidgets and blinks too much and doesn’t know what do with his facial expressions + poses BUT jeSUS CHRIST when he’s being filmed without the pressure of photoshoots he turns into this world class face of vogue model
It’s been a while but I’ve missed my cinabun in the actor!AU. School is school and work is work but I wanted to write again. This is part of @ackerchou actor!AU (check it out if you haven’t already and the other AUs). I swear it was funnier in my head as I was writing this, I promise guys.
“Er, hi guys? Wait, is this thing even on? How do I know if it’s streaming? Lance!” The camera shifted and a face left the focus of the screen before being shifted several times. Viewers watching this livestream were disappointed at the lack of face and were forced to watch a few seconds of a bland wall.
“Keith, is it on? What the heck are you doing?” A new voice filled the speakers of the camera and viewers stood on the edges of their seats in excitement.
“I don’t know. Is it streaming?” The first voice said and the camera shifted again. Now viewers had the chance to stare at a very ugly carpet on screen.
“How should I know?”
“Haven’t you done this before?!”
“Lance!” The first voice cried, voice full of nervousness. The camera shifted several times more and viewers could only see the blurred focus of nothing for a while. Eventually, (with much patience) two familiar faces filled the screen. One was beaming, wearing a smile that was familiar with everyone while the other was nervously waving into the camera.
My new son, Goobs!
Plakats are honestly my fav ever and this boy is definitely no exception. I’ve had him for about 2 weeks now and you can see some of the marbling that’s already started in the last (terribly blurry) picture.
He used to be very camera friendly but he has since decided that camera = The Ultimate Enemy.
he is perfect
You couldn’t believe it. It was really him, he’s back, he’s alive! And boy doesn’t he look so much hotter than ever. Jerome, your Jerome Valeska is alive and well. He’s on TV right now, like the police one before. But you couldn’t believe your eyes, you thought you were hallucinating but you weren’t. He’s really alive.
“Hi. Some of you may know, I died. Uh oh, but take it from me, death is…dull. But coming back, that is something, leave it to dying to give you a whole new perspective on life.” He said as he went to the person who you didn’t know, was tied up and surrounded by gasoline.
“And I’ll like to share that with you.” He said as he turns around, facing away from the camera and facing the person.
“Hello officer, you look terrible. Aye you got.” He then turns around facing the camera and shows a lighter, then he turns the lighter on showing the fire.
“Tonight Gotham, in the darkness. There are no rules! So, tonight Gotham…do what you want. Kill, who you want.“ He said as he hummed. He then made an unhuman noise and rolled his head. “And when morning comes,” he then gets down on his knees and came back to the camera making sure that they can see his face properly. “You too shall be,” he then lights up the rope. “Re born.” He said as the sparks came out and he drops it then comes back to the camera.
“And one more thing.” He said as he smirks widely, he cocks his head to the side as his smile goes wider and wider. “I’m coming to get you, Y/N. So we can be reunited!” He yells the last part and laughs wildly as he turns away from the camera and looks over at the person.
“Oh and uh,” he clicks his fingers as if he’s trying to remember what he was going to say. “I don’t forgive you for my face.” He said as he points his face out looking at the man deadly then laughs it out. He then walks out laughing.
Then all of a sudden your TV and lights turn off like a black out, but you couldn’t care. You have an limp in the back of your throat, your stomach tied in knots, your breathing quicken, your heart beat is faster than ever before. You couldn’t believe that he’s alive and still the same old Jerome you knew once before.
But you now know that you have to find him. So that you can be with him, you needed him and he needed you.
You both need to be reunited.
(Sorry it’s short, I’m sorry if Jerome is out of character. I’m sorry for any spelling mistakes and grammar)
Even with Iris curled up right next to him, lips parting and letting out soft little puffs of air every few moments. He wouldn’t call it snoring, no the sound was too quiet, but it was noticeable. I’m a good way though, a lot of times when Iris would fall asleep first he’d let the soft sounds of her breathing lull him to sleep, content with the fact that Iris was whole and warm, and actually getting some rest for once.
Tonight wasn’t one of those nights. It always happened like this though, the night before one or both of them had to be away from each other for days on end for either work or Flash obligations. Iris was on a trip a few states over, covering a festival that would span nearly five days. And yeah he could pop down there in literally less than a minute, but she’d be working most of the time, doing what she did best, and while it wasn’t what she normally wrote about she was excited for it and he didn’t want to distract her. Though he would miss her every second they were apart.
And it wasn’t that they were super codependent or anything, but they both slept better together than apart, and Barry knew better than anyone how to help Iris when she was anxious about work or her mom, what to say or when to back down and give her space. And Iris always, always knew the exact words to say to Batty when he got all caught up in his head and tangled in self doubt and a lack of self worth that even years of being the Flash and saving more people than not still couldn’t seem to wash away those dark thoughts on his very worst days.
“Shhh. Go to sleep.” The voice was soft, vowels and consonants slurring together turning into something almost incomprehensible to anyone else, but Barry had plenty of years to slowly understand the garbled, nearly whispered half asleep voice that was Iris West (soon to be hyphened Allen. Not that he was counting the days or anything) just waking up at three in the morning.
He smiled, rolling over, arm reflexively going to tuck around her waist, fingers digging into warm skin, his own voice just as soft, “I didn’t say anything.”
“No, but you kept sighing.” The words became a bit more pronounced as Iris turned her head towards him and he nearly flushed. His other partners made no qualms about telling him to shut up when he did it, but Iris only laughed. The sound bouncing in his ears, the familiar melody of her little laugh making his heart thump a little harder in his chest, “S'cute though. Don’t worry.”
“You only find it cute because you love me.” He argued softly, and Iris only shrugged before tipping her head back against the pillow and closing her eyes once more.
He resisted the urge to throw a pillow at her and he opened his mouth to retort something back but that same moment a breeze rolled in from the open windows, rustling the curtains and for a few brief moments Iris was drenched in moonlight. The soft light fluttered across her face and down her with each movement of the curtains. And he couldn’t resist leaning up on his elbow, tracing his thumb down the soft edge of her jaw, letting the tips of his fingers press against the soft shadows cast from her ridiculously long eyelashes.
He thought about grabbing his phone, and maybe snapping a picture but then he remembered his camera was terrible in the dark, and no picture could have done justice to the memory now permanently imbedded his mind. No picture could capture the subtly shifting shadows each time the curtains moved, or the way his lips parted as Barry moved steadily closer and suddenly Iris’s eyes were snapping back open, suddenly more alert than they’d been a few minutes ago, pinned on him and somehow awake she was even more beautiful in the moonlight and Barry suddenly couldn’t breathe, couldn’t do much more than stare at Iris with a gaping mouth and wide eyes.
“Maybe I won’t go.” The words were said clearly and slowly, and this time he did flush when he realized Iris must have been awake the entire time and never truly went back to sleep. He snapped his mouth closed, then opened it again, trying to find something to say, but instead his body was moving of its own accord, and suddenly he was looking down at her, pressed chest to chest and it was only then that he realized her heart was beating just as fast as his own.
“Don’t go then.” He said, and this time the words were punctuated by Iris wrapping her arms around his neck and yanking his head down so she could kiss him. Her lips were soft against his own, insistent, and he could have asked the world of Barry right then and there and he’d have promised her anything. Maybe everything.
“Okay. Okay…yeah. Staying right here. Forever.” She whispered against his mouth, tongue tasting, teeth gently biting and knowing damn well it wasn’t a promise she could keep, or rather would want to keep when morning hit and reality set in and they realized there was actually a world outside of Barry and Iris.
And when they finally both needed to breathe, he just closed his eyes and pressed his forehead against Iris’s, voice a ragged whisper, “I don’t want to leave you.”
“Then don’t. We’ll stay locked up here and away from the world for the rest of our lives.” Barry said, voice just as ragged as his own, even though they both knew they were making demands neither of them would be able to keep.
I know, I take a long ass time to update these, but tbh I’ve been very busy. However, watching the new MV and the VCR for MAMA 2016 has been making me think a lot more about this stupid overarching plot that EXO seem to be showing through their MVs. I hate them tbh… =/
Anyway, the order of the MVs with new things included (imo) go as such:
MAMA/History/What Is Love - Miracles in December - Romantic Universe - MAMA 2016 VCR - Lucky One - Overdose - Love Me Right - Wolf/Growl - Lotto - Coming Over - Pathcodes/Call Me Baby - Monster - Sing For You - MAMA 2016 Performance.
(Note: I moved Pathcodes/Call Me Baby from after Love Me Right to before Monster because I slightly changed my mind over something I haven’t actually covered in these theory posts yet. It also fits better here with revisions concerning the new stuff!)
So, I’m sure a lot of people have theories about the MAMA stuff because it was confusing and definitely story oriented. I’ve split the VCR and performance stuff (collars and ending lights going out) up as I think they’re separate. I’ll explain why!
Anyway, let’s start with the VCR. For me, the VCR is set very early on in the story. The reason I think this is because of the setting and what happens. First thing I noticed watching the VCR were the chess pieces and trees in the background:
The chess pieces have 2 possible interpretations imo. Either 1) they represent that the members are mere pieces in a larger game or 2) because the chess pieces are white and the people (inc. EXO) are in black, that they are in opposition to the forces at play. Personally, I would suggest it’s a bit of both. The trees, I’m not entirely sure what they exactly represent, but trees are a significant piece in EXO’s storyline so I would think they have some link to the Tree of Life perhaps - or at least are a visual representation of something linking the two.
Next, the guy with the red eye goes through the thing and doesn’t get a collar. The red eye I would think is very obviously eluding to the Red Forces, so it seems like they don’t need a collar. The next person to go through is deemed human and does get a red collar. And the checker writes a character under the ‘Human’ tab: 正 which (if Google translate is correct) means ‘positive’.
Chapter Title: You gave me magical, I’ll give you wonderful
Summary: Yuuri Katsuki, one of the dime-a-dozen top figure skaters certified by the JSF, ends in last place at his first Grand Prix Final after bombing his performance. When he thinks things couldn’t get worse, he wakes up absolutely hangovered in an unknown hotel room with no recollection of what happened the previous night.Next to him is his idol Victor Nikiforov, now legally his husband.
funny that you ask this, because this is actually kinda something i’ve talked about with reigningchampions before (though it’s half college au and half internet friends au)
(under the cut bc this got long as hell)
consider: daichi as a vlogger, doing cute little videos with tips and tricks to make dorm life suck slightly less, mostly just how to fix your furniture and not lose your shit over your roommates’ terrible habits and lots of easy quick meal recipes (since that’s basically all he knows how to do). he’s kinda awkward in front of the camera, especially in his first vlogs, but he’s got a great smile so once he warms up to the camera he ends up with a surprisingly good number of followers
kuroo is just a shitposting memer but in video form basically. mostly ridiculous retellings of his day/experiences (think olan rogers tbh) and the occasional prank or twelve, executed with (and sometimes upon) bokuto. he has a pretty dang decent following bc he’s terrible but his sense of humor is great (plus he’s a babe so that doesn’t hurt either yafeel)
Amythest: That rooster keeps making the most amazing rooster noise. It’s like straight out of an animated film or something. It’s like, stock rooster noise. It’s like the rooster foley. It’s amazing. And I wish he would do it on camera. [Amythest does an absolutely terrible impression of a rooster noise] Can you do it again? [whispering] Buddy. Do it again. [normal volume] Yeah you. I’m talkin’ to you. You, in the white. Dooo it. Come on. [Another cringe-worthy rooster crow impression] Can you do it? Fine. Be like that you terrible beast. [Rooster crows majestically] Haha! Haha! Thank you! Ahh. That’s a great noise. Classic. Classic rooster.
Please please! GOM + Kagami + Himuro talking on the Skype with their s/o while they are abroad (somewhere exotic probably?). Wish you all the best!
I’m sorry I kind of made this into a more before the skype call thing, I can make another one if this isnt what you meant (admins new to this I’m sorry!)
Kise: Kise was going insane. They had hardly left to catch their flight before he started feeling lonely and the first day he could do nothing but mope. When his computer began ringing he jumped and dropped the ice cream he’d been snacking on. “____-cchi!” He shouted jostling the computer. They laughed at his excitement. “Was the plane ride okay? It was safe, right? Where are you staying?” He slowed down after he felt that they were indeed safe. They gave him a tour of where they were staying then sat down to talk. “I really miss you, ____-chhi.” He sighed. “I miss you too but I’ll be back soon, okay?” He nodded and blew a kiss through the camera.
Akashi: he was in a terrible mood after they left. The house was so lonely and seemed much smaller when they were away. He’d locked the cook and maids out of the house, not wanting them to distract him in case his SO called. When they finally did he answered on the first ring. They smiled at his unusual eagerness, when they promised the flight was safe and their place was nice they then showed him the beautiful view of the beach from their room. “I’m glad you’re having fun.” He smiled gently and they knew the underlying subtext was ‘I miss you’
Aomine: Aomine had their itinerary in his hand and called the moment the paper said they would land. They didn’t answer and he threw his phone at the couch. Slumping down in his chair and waiting for the phone to light up it was nearly an hour and he started to worry when an incoming skype call came through. He practically pounced on his phone. “What took you so long?!” He growled and they laughed explaining there wasn’t wifi at the airport and they had to get to their hotel. He felt stupid suddenly but just rolled his eyes and let them tell him all about the cool things they saw driving in. “How long are you staying?” “Only a few days.” “Call me everyday, alright?”
Kuroko: he’d dropped them off at the airport and walked through with them as far as he could before he had to leave. “Call me as soon as you land.” He’d said so why had it been nearly 10 hours when the flight was only 6 hours long? It was long past midnight but he wasn’t going to sleep until his partner called. He had accidentally fallen unconscious on the couch when his loud obnoxious ring tone went off. “I’m so sorry! My phone died and my bags took forever to come through I made it out of the airport hardly half an hour ago!” He blinked sleep from his eyes and all his stress evaporated when he saw them, the sun was up where they were, shining brightly around them like they were glowing. “It’s fine, I’m just glad you’re safe.” He smiled and they showed him their hotel room and view of the magnificent city.
Midorima: he was very against then flying today. They didn’t have good lunch today, he tried to change the date without them noticing but they walked in on him at the computer and yelled at him. So he was on edge the whole time they were on the plane and even more so when he saw thunder on the weather forecast he sat with his computer open for hours until they called looking a bit frazzled. “Hey, how was the flight?” He asked, worry noticeable in his tone. “Lots of turbulence.” They muttered, regretting not letting him change the date of their flight. “Well at least you made it there safe.” He smiled.
Murasakibara: He’d packed their carry on bag for them, not very excited they were leaving him but he didn’t want them to forget him. And they couldn’t forget him with about 20 pounds of sweets in their bag. He waited patiently on the couch with his computer, home phone, and cell phone for when they called. He didn’t mean to fall asleep, he really didn’t but with his sleeping habits he wasn’t going to wake up by any of the three devices no matter how persistently they rang. When he woke up to sun shining in his eyes he tried to call them back but it was night in that time zone and this went on for a couple days before his partner stayed up throughout the while night to get a hold of him. “____-chiiin~” he whined. “You can’t go so long without talking to me, I haven’t seen your face in a month!” “It’s only been two days Atsushi.” They smiled at the messy bed head of the giant and began telling him about everything they’d done.
Kagami: kagami had flown to America several times before so he knew how boring flights could be so he made sure they had plenty to do on the flight and he arranged a taxi to be there once they landed. When he got the call he was in the kitchen and had cake batter all over him and he tried to answer the call with messy hands, getting the batter all over the screen. “Hi!” He shouted and smiled at his SO who waved into the camera in front of the beach. Wearing a cute little hat to keep the sun out of their eyes he missed them more than he thought. They laughed “Taiga, you have batter on your cheek.” He grinned at them “well if you hurry and get back here I’ll save some cake for you”all they really needed to hear was ‘hurry and get back here’
Himuro: he had arranged for their hotel room to be set up all fancy, rose petals on the floor and extra cushy pillows. When they got there they smiled and picked up the card in the bouquet of flowers. They hadn’t even finished reading the card before calling him. The room was dark for a moment before he turned on the light, revealing a sleepy Himuro. “Did you get the flowers?” He murmured and they nodded. “I miss you, ____-chan”
