You two have been best friends since middle school. Things were different and much more simpler back in the day. There wasn’t a day that you two would spend separately. Little Jung Jaehyun would walk you to school everyday, and walk you back to your door every afternoon. Weekends are usually spend in his house, blasting songs on the maximum volume or tucked under blankets on his cozy sofa while watching crappy horror movies. His parent’s were so used to having you around, to the point that they would leave the gates open every Saturday morning and expect you to at least eat two meals with the family. You were his best friend, and he was yours. It was that simple. And everyone knew that.
Feelings for him grew beyond friendship before you were able to realize it. But the chubby Jaehyun that you had to yourself in those middle school years grew up to become the cutest guy in your highschool. Girls were constantly begging for his attention and he was too nice and to polite to reject any of them. And you were always on the side eyeing them with jealousy. No matter how much time you spend aroudn him, you didn’t have to courage to confess your feelings. It was time he found his passion, so the time you guys had together became less and less. He was either circled by a crowd of girls or somewhere training. The boy that always walked you to and from school was no longer by your side, and the thought itself wounded your heart. You missed your friend, missed the boy who would never leave you half a step. But you know he had his reasons, he had his goals set and his dreams to achieve.
It was your last Valentine in high school. It was also the last birthday you could spend with Jaehyun as he soon will be completely hidden away until his official debut. Unsurprisingly, by late morning Jaehyun was already struggling to carry the roses he received. You waved at him to get his attention:
“Hey flower boy, getting much love this year yea?” You eyed the flowers. The number of roses is enough to form a big bouquet.
“Well can you blame them?” He winked.
“They must be blind.” You replied.
“So how about you y/n hows Valentine going for you”. He struggled to hold all the roses in one arm, then put his free arm over your shoulder.
“As you can see, not everyone is popular like you, Mr. Jung.”
“Don’t worry,” he chuckled “your time will come soon.”
“I doubt it. So tonight at your place right. It’s your birthday so you get the day off?”
“Yeah. Just comeover whenever you finish working. Oh the warning bell. I have to go now. See you!”
You waived him goodbye and ran to your class.
The rest of the evening you were caught in your own thoughts. Should you confess, or should you preserve what ever friendship there is between you two? After awhile debating to yourself, it had settled, tonight is the night you tell Jung Jaehyun you love him.
You walked the familiar pathway to his house, surprised when the gates were unlocked. It was quite a while since you’ve last been here, so why would his parents leave the gates open on a Wednesday night? Walking in you realized no one was home, or at least it appeared to be.
You walked upstairs to find the door to his room slightly open. A dim light shone through the crack of his door.
“Jaehyun stop messing with me I know you are in there.” You slammed the door open expecting a dumb jump scare. But what you see is a room lit with all kinds of candles. Lying neatly on the bed was a card. You picked it up, the tiny hear shaped peace of card board. Running your fingers on the edges of the paper you realized that it was handmade. You couldn’t but giggle at the thought of him struggling to perfectly cut a heart. He was well rounded, but art was never his cup of tea. You flipped the card to the other side and were surprised yet again. 2 words “turn around”. You did as it said and found your best friend with a big bouquet of your favorite flowers.
“This date has always been a special day to me because not only was it Valentines but it was also my birthday. I want to mark another important even on this day so y/n would you be my girlfriend?”
You burst in laughter “That’s so cheesy Jaehyun.”
“Don’t act like you don’t like it” he said.
“What if I say no though?”
“You won’t, because how can you resist this” he said while gesturing towards himself.
Jughead: valentines day is a consumerist holiday that holds no real value other than to make people spend money on hear shaped chocolates and act like they love their significant others in the most superficial and fake way p
I read your Winter Soldier analysis, and I have a question : you say that "There’s a reason his code name is drawn from an investigation into one of the ugliest chapters of American history." Please help a non-American understand what you meant? I mean I obviously see the Cold War reference in the movie, but from what you've written it seems like something more subtle *within* the Cold War... shit, I mean just "Cold War" seems too evident and I can't find the deeper meaning?
Oh gosh, don’t feel bad, there are plenty of Americans who have never even heard of this.
The Winter Soldier Investigation was a 1971 veteran-organized media event intended to draw attention to the war crimes that had taken place in Vietnam. Directly inspired by the exposure of the My Lai Massacre (the mass murder of over five hundred unarmed civilians by American troops) in 1969, Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) brought together discharged servicemen from every branch of the military to discuss the atrocities they had seen and committed during their time in the war. They hoped bring these tragedies before the public eye, and to prove that American military policies led directly to the death and torment of civilians. Eventually a transcript from this conference made its way before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during the Fullbright Hearings.
When Ed Brubaker, the author who wrote the original Winter Soldier arc, chose the name, he wanted something that would call up both cold Siberian winters and the atrocities of war. This fit the bill.
But the term itself, the idea of “winter soldiers”, was coined by VVAW as a response to the writings of Thomas Paine, who described the men who deserted at Valley Forge during the American Revolution:
These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
A winter soldier is someone who will warm their hands over a meager fire and weather the cold. Someone who refuses to abandon their country and its potential, no matter what the personal cost.
So how’s that for a weird little twist? According to Thomas Paine—activist, political philosopher, and revolutionary—the real winter soldier is Captain America.
Some words I had written in the past but really needed to read again in the present.
Focusing on the present moment, being mindful to what is stable and present -with you, is so important to being able to calm down. Remember to breath, wrap up warm, and allow yourself to rest. It’s going to be ok.
Expanding upon the concept of “The Middle” and how individual experiences are shaped by existing in between the Deaf World and the Hearing World. Please click on each photo for captions.
The “Aspects” and “Privilege” listed in the first photo are as posted:
Aspects of Deaf culture (Not always for everyone)
Use of CC/Subtitles Limited interaction with sound/music Sign language (Some verbal possible, depending) Bi/multi-lingualism Deaf schools, programs, camps, performance Subject to “warehousing” Social activities, entertainment choices may be limited due to accessibility or lack of an interpreter Hearing aids/devices/cochlear implant Limited job choices Police brutality Assisted devices - vibrating alarms, flashing lights Body language/ facial expressions Activism, awareness of Hearing Privilege
Privilege (inevitable - not mean to make Hearing people feel “guilty”)
CC devices not “necessary” but can use if wish Broad interaction with sound/music Spoken language > sign (assume everyone speaks one language) Concerns with “hearing” when interacting w/ public not usually primary concern Unlimited amount of academic choices, community, jobs, etc Not subject to warehousing based on hearing perception Can attend movies, concerts, plays w/out CC, interpreter, or assistance Public harassment over hearing devices isn’t a thing Many do not have to worry about hearing smoke alarms, timers, sirens, etc Lack of fear of police brutality due to not being able to hear/comprehend officers (exception of non-dominant language speakers or those with mental illnesses) No concern over representation of hearing people in books, movies, TV, social media, etc. Face to face communication isn’t necessary Most can talk openly on phones w/out anxiety or trouble understanding
The world ends on a Thursday, comes crashing down in smoke and fire and ruin. And then it keeps going, and Vox Machina figures out how to make do in the aftermath. [ a post-apocalyptic au for cr ladies week ]
He takes leave of the garage, folds his oil-stained towel on his workbench and climbs two flights of stairs to join them, shirt grimy and hair wild and fingers still dark with grease. He sits between them, between Vex (keeping watch on their surroundings) and Pike (keeping watch on Vex). Sometimes he greets them with a smile or a clever quip. Sometimes he sinks down between them and says little, allows Pike to wipe the stains from his fingers and curl their hands together. Often, Vex greets him with a kiss to the cheek. Sometimes they merely sit, all pressed together.
The details are unimportant. What matters is this: they sit there together, and for a little while the end of the world does not seem quite a terrible thing, not if this can come from it. Not if it means she gets them.
Jongin answering a question that was meant for Kyungsoo (2015 radio show - CMB era)
Jongin was asked to draw Kyungsoo (2015 Japan fansign), and he drew him with 3 hearts (we c u jongin). If I’m not mistaken, he said the hearts on Kyungsoo’s hands were supposed to be “V-sign”. Dunno what the heart on the chest/neck area tho…
Jongin gave his signature to a fan. Look who got included inside the heart shape…. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
A fan asked Jongin to draw penguin during ex'act fansign, so he did (draw it next to his face lips). Okay, this might be me being delulu as usual (lel) but that penguin has a heart-shaped beak. Just look at dem curves (the top part of the beak).
Kyungsoo was drawing Jongin next to him on ‘Star Show 360’ (recorded on 160823) and he used the same hear-shape as his for Jongin’s lips.
Jongin’s drawing of himself (161005) – dem lips doe (it’s similar to Kyungsoo’s drawing).
(not related to KD but….) Jongin also drew Monggu with heart shapes (idk what monggu’s gender so i’m gonna assume it as “him” *monggu got triggered*) as his ears. I guess Jongin only draws heart for the things he loves (❛ᴗ❛) *coughsomeone with initial DKScough*
dem 2 staring at each other’s lips
Jongin complained about his front teeth

Jongin touching Kyungsoo’s heart shaped lips and Kyungsoo wants to bite Jongin’s finger lel
Doesn’t look licensed, but I don’t suppose any of those names are trademarked. And they are all pretty appropriate, really. (Not only is Snow classic emo, they’re similar to a style Kit wore once.) Someone had fun naming these. :)
Pairing: Jeon Jungkook x Reader Rating: Teen Genre: Fluff & humour? Word count: 2,027
A/N: Request from anon! I hope you like it! (ﾉ≧∀≦)ﾉ
Jungkook was tired. He was so damn tired.
His alarm had screamed in his ear, tucked under his cheek from falling asleep whilst browsing through Instagram, at the crack of dawn giving him just enough time to sit on his bed for a good ten minutes contemplating his life choices and if he really needed an education before he had to jump in the shower and race to his first class of the day. His day dragged on, robotically shuffling around campus from one class to the next, downing too many cups of coffee so that his heavy eyelids would perk up even just a little and by early afternoon he was ducking behind the art building to relieve his aching bladder that could not, and would not, hold out any longer.
aaaaaaaa i don,t know if youve ever had this question before but,, how do you go about making your ocs? is it like you see a thing and you go "!!!!! now THAT would make a great oc" or ?? askin 4 a frend lmao but have a gr10 day
Oh like, what inspires my characters? LOTS of things!! Never limit what can inspire you to create a character because seriously some of my characters have been inspired by the silliest things.
For example, Papaya was inspired by….papaya. As in I thought the word “papaya” would be a cute name for a cute character so…I just made a cute boy up AND THERE HE IS.
Well actually he’s the “New Version” of an old oc that had nothing to do with this fruit but eh. Original Paya was from a dream I had.
Honestly I just have a list of food and plant names just waiting to become characters. Some words you just hear and instantly think it would be a good theme for a character!
A LOT of my characters are inspired by music though. Shae, for example, was inspired by Sunlight-Bag Raiders.
