First off, if you weren’t a B-Bomb stan before that concert, its pretty safe to say if you were sat anywhere within the vicinity of my seat, you damn well are now! That boy has some serious fan service that ropes you in without telling you! From his
effortless beauty that shines the minute he steps on stage, to his favourite English food of Cottage Pie (Who taught him that?), to the intense stares he was giving the entire left hand side of the balcony which, might i just say, are literally soul-sucking whenever his eyes land on you! Its safe to say, i’d give my entire life’s earnings to see B-Bomb smile at me again. O.O
But i digress.
To be honest, i probably owe everyone an apology for being a little too excited the entire hour we were seated leading up to the beginning of the show, so if there was a girl by you with deely boppers and grey/purple hair that was shouting and dancing too much to the sound system, I apologize for any inconvenience i caused you! (I was just trying to make everyone a little more hype!) ;)
But its safe to say, the minute the lights went down and the VCR began, i could not stop screaming. And the moment they all came out, skipping onto stage whooping, Zico going above and beyond the level of hype i expected- I was gone, im pretty sure the scream that left me was long and continuous and did not stop for the entirety of the concert.
But shall we get onto the bit, that i know you’re all here for?
Block B, when seen with your very own eyes, are the epitome of beauty, and in the strangest sense, when you see them, reality comes squeezing in around you, and you’re forced to realize in that moment that their little feet start dancing around the stage, that they are in fact ACTUAL human beings.
Along with this, the most prominent understanding you are forced to come to, is that, that Taeil that you’ve always seen on screen and in pictures, is LITERALLY JUST AS CUTE AND SMOL as he is in real life. I could not stop staring at how adorable he is- regardless of how manly he might actually see himself as.
I was also forced to accept the true herculean form of Kim Yukwon’s thighs, and the reality of exactly why he’s got a girlfriend and has had her since debut and beyond- the boy is GORGEOUS.
I had to confront myself about the reality that Jaehyo really is an extremely tall Ahjumma crossed with Adonis. And i cannot tell you the enjoyment i got watching him get to the end of the 3rd song, before seeing his face start to show the pain of exercise and dancing whilst all his other members were still happily bouncing away (because SAME). And by the half way mark, he had almost completely given up and had began to piss about with U-Kwon, who continuously tried to jab him in the ribs.
And then came Kyung. Now, im not the biggest Kyung stan as im sure most are aware. HOWEVER, i cannot deny him the fact that he is incredibly cute in his gestures, and he was SO HYPE to be in London! I swear to God he didn’t stop smiling the entire time, and i think that is one of the main memories that i will take away from that experience, is the huge arm heart that Kyung kept showing to the 2nd level- plus, when he smiles AS HES LOOKING AT YOU, you’re sure to go home happy. Although, can we just also talk about his miniature English q&a session (because he was all too aware he is the most fluent in English out of all of them), in which he asked the members about their favourite British foods, (hence B-Bomb and cottage pie) and he tried to rip into them for their adorable simplistic answers? Quick run down:
B-Bomb - Cottage Pie (proud of himself) Jaehyo - burger and fries? (I think, was very shy and awkward when he said it xD) U-Kwon - five guys (also pretty enthusiastic) Zico - fish and chips (very VERY enthusiastic, could be the new mascot for fish and chips tbh) Taeil - (i feel like it was something generically English but i cant remember, my bad) Kyung - just giggled the whole time.
Now, lets move onto Zico. That boy, was LIVING for being in London. Before i got there, i got the feeling he was pretty excited to be here through his insta posts, but he could not stop going on about it the whole time, exceedingly smiley and energetic through the entire first half (and second half to be honest) but after Conduct for Zero (when he filled in for P.O- I was sad, but it was a lit stage) he just seemed so happy to be there, and seemed to genuinely be having the time of his life. He was ALL TOO HAPPY to speak English for pretty much the entire time, and just seemed so proud of himself to be able to do so, which was so adorable i cannot tell you! But after seeing Block B live, you can really understand what kind of a group leader he is; efficient, compassionate, and just BAWSE!!
One of the songs which was a game changer for me, was the heavy rock version of Very Good they played!! Like holey moley, that was LIT TO HIGH HEAVENS!! (i’ll upload a video clip in a mo). But also NICE DAY WAS INSANE! And Taeil carried it SOOO well- if you ever do anything in your life, see Lee Taeil sing them high notes live man!! It is WORTH IT! But tbh, the highlight of that night, despite the lacking of P.O’s presence- which i think i would have legitimately fainted at- was Zero For Conduct. I’ve always been a HUGE Bastarz fan!…but seeing that live, has changed my life! Sincerely.
And also, you might be thinking, but how did the other members feel? Zico and Kyung were happily chatting away in English, but what about the others? However, despite wondering this myself, when the ‘thank you’-esq time came around, they had such a good translation system working, and although i initially thought it would be awkward, the minute the crowd started responding to what the translator was saying after the boys had spoken, it just became such a beautiful and warming atmosphere, because i dont know about everyone else, but i was soo happy to know how the boys felt about London, and the end of their Europe tour in general. And after Zico took his hat off for us like he said he would if we genuinely impressed him, i can honestly say, any normal band will never live up to the experience of a block b/kpop concert in general.
And on a final note, lets just talk about the fan service again, cause i still cant get over B-Bomb and i dont think i ever will. He is Apollo, he is sunshine on a rainy day, he is a tragically beautiful painting, and for as long as i live i will never forget the entire 5-6 times i locked eyes with that man and shared in his smile. Because even though I got to wave at Taeil who was waving and pulling many a sad/funny face at the second floor area, and even though Kyung may have shot a heart in my direction, and coupled it with the cheesiest grin i ever did see, neither of them for some reason compare to the utter, graceless beauty, that is B-Bomb’s smile when directed specifically at you.
I’d say more about Zico, but his attention was mostly on the front row and the standing crowd, and im not entirely sure he could see the balcony seats and up well- but he was having a grand time regardless. Jaehyo was smiling throughout, but i got the sense from him, that despite the fact he was having a good time, he was tired from the end of tour. And U-kwon was really just playing with the girls hearts in the front row the entire night- so if you were down there, r.i.p after Kim Yukwon.
And alas, here i sit. Crying over remembering all the little details of the show, that as soon as it started seemed like it only took 5 minutes before it was ending, cause i was simply enjoying myself so much. The Post-concert blues are real, and i think that concert truly did change my entire life, but if there is one bit of advice i’d give anyone who was thinking of going to a kpop concert, or any concert in general in the future…its simply to take a moment to take it in, it wont ever be enough, but as long as you take a moment for yourself to realize that what you’re experiencing is real, then it’ll all be okay.
P.S. imma probs do another post tomorrow with everything i’ve forgotten from this one, but for now, enjoy my reliving of ‘Blockbuster in London’. <3
- “I am potter fandom account. It is obvious I’ve read the books. Snape was waay worse than Dumbledore. Dumbledore wanted to kill ½ human race just for two years. Snape was bully for around 60 years.”
- “You do realize that Snape was only 38 when he died, right?”
-“ 38? HOLEY MOLEY! He looked much older. The thing is I’ve read the books when I was 7 and later re-read them with massive gaps. But that is not the point. The point is that he was a bully and his age were not in the books.”
hey i know you already did a mcspirk Hogwarts au but holey moley do you have any more ideas about it because that was truly a blessing
Sure thing anon:
Since they’re all in different houses (Bones is in Hufflepuff, Spock in Ravenclaw and Jim in Slytherin <- click them for the original AU), past curfew, they don’t really have a place to hang out together. Yet somehow, Spock still wakes up one morning with both Bones and Jim at either side of him. The other boys in his room don’t even look remotely confused or annoyed that there’s a Slytherin and a Hufflepuff in their bedroom. And honestly, Spock is quite impressed that they managed to sneak in past curfew, bribed the password off a Ravenclaw, and found his bed without waking him up. All three of them skip their first period to lie in bed a little longer despite Spock’s initial protests.
Bones helps out in the Hospital Wing with Madam Pomfrey on Wednesdays after class, and so Spock and Jim have their own date nights then. Mostly they do homework together in the library or they visit Hagrid. For as long as the weather allows it they also like to sit outside a lot and enjoy the lake, or go for a run along the forest line. Their quiet time usually helps Jim relax.
The three of them attending the winter ball as each other’s dates. They dance together, get drunk on spiked punch, and spend a lot of time just making out together.
Bones and Spock going home over the Christmas break, but Jim’s mom is out doing field research on Dragons in muggle-populated areas, so he’s staying. Both boys think that’s just not done, so Bones drags him home with him. On Christmas morning Jim actually wakes up to the scent of fresh bread, tea, and sweets, and there’s presents for him under the tree and Bones’ parents are so nice. Spock shows up a day later, with some extra presents for them, and Jim’s chest feels tight when he’s in their company because of his love for these two. And they spend the entire Christmas break practicing Quidditch - even Bones, though he really, really hates flying, they’re practicing their magic, and Bones’ dad takes them to a Quidditch game. Jim loves them even more afterwards.
Bones doesn’t realize just how much he’s in love with these dorks until they’re up against a Boggart in Defense Against the Dark Arts. He’s expecting something with flying, or crashing down or whatever. But instead, the Boggart turns into Spock. He’s just lifelessly on the floor in front of Bones’ feet. And it changes shape, until Jim’s there, still breathing, but Bones is forced to watch the life disappear from those bright blue eyes and he just freezes. He feels like no air is getting into his lungs and he’s just falling into a panic attack because these are his boyfriends, and he couldn’t do anything to save them. Even when the real Spock wraps his arms around Bones’ shoulders and pulls him away from the Boggart, Bones is still just not okay. Spock takes him out of the classroom and just holds him tightly, his hand rubbing over Bones’ back softly to calm him down and Bones is like sobbing into Spock’s shirt and apologizing for being emotionally compromised.
Jim’s talking to his Gryffindor classmate Scotty when he passes them and he throws them a sweet smile because his boyfriends are hugging and that’s cute. But then he’s dragged in by Spock and he realizes Bones is just really upset over something and both boys just hug Bones so tightly until he’s calmed down.
Jim is still struggling with Potions. He’s literally the smartest in so many things, but he just can’t do Potions well. His attempt to make love potions are terrible and smell like feet and so Spock and Bones stay after class-hours to help Jim create the perfect potion. When Jim asks Spock what it smells like, the initial answer ls “old books in the library”, which, odd, but it’s Spock, and then “the perfume you gave me for Christmas” and “the shampoo in Bones’ hair when he’s just showered after his shift in the hospital wing.” And Jim is literally jumping up and down because 1) the potion’s finally worked and 2) that’s the most romantic thing ever.
Jim accidentally kicking Spock off his broomstick with a Bludger during a Quidditch match. He can hear Bones yelling at him over the rest of the audience. Spock’s got a concussion, but nothing Bones and Madam Pomfrey can’t fix. While Spock is in the hospital wing drinking a potion prepared to help him heal, Jim sits with him both apologizing to Spock for hurting him and meanwhile boasting to Bones because Slytherin won the Quidditch match.
Someone else has accidentally drank Jim’s love potion and Bones and Spock just watch him try and escape this girl. “Should we help him?” Spock asks, watching Jim struggling to shake the girl off, and Bones leans in to kiss Spock’s cheek. “Nah.”
Spock becomes a prefect in his fifth year. Initially Bones and Jim think that’s hilarious, and surely that means the rules don’t apply to them as much. They change their minds after Spock sends them both to detention for skipping class. They don’t actually talk to Spock again until Spock makes it up to them by showing them the Prefect’s bathrooms. Cue the three of them taking a bath together, loads of bubbles and soap everywhere, and the hot water’s not the only thing making it a lil’ steamy.
The boys being genuinely proud of each other when the other houses win the House Cup and they celebrate with butter beers and wearing each other’s colors for a while, even on the train back home for the summer.
Just Jim, Spock, and Bones in Hogwarts, man. It’s so great.
This is my Harry Potter tattoo. I’ve been wanting to do it for years and finally I got it done yesterday at Holey Moley Tattoos in Jersey City by Susy. I’ve loved the Harry Potter books since I read the first one when I was 9. Hogwarts is a place I can go and never feel alone. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and everyone in the books have been with my since that day I picked up the first book. I got this tattoo to remind myself that they’ll be with me until the very end.
