My feelings About Levi and Mikasa’s relationship

I really love the way Mikasa’s and Levi’s relationship has grown through the story. 

We’ve seen Levi being a responsible leader to his subordinates,  tough but caring, exigent but understanding, and that was the captain in him. Now with Mikasa .. it’s the first time Levi is actually involved with someone from his squad on a personal level.

Levi has always recognized Mikasa’s abilities, trusted her enough to place her next to him in missions, and the way I see it, treated her a bit differently than the other squad members! – it could be because Mikasa proved herself reliable or because he saw a piece of him in her, or it’s just a feeling of whatever is this thing that relates them.. or all of this!-.
(for one .. she’s definitely his protégée! )

I always found it funny that whenever Mikasa retorted on Levi roughly he never gets mad or give it much thought.. like Yo I’m your captain where’s manners! 
If anything he makes sure to explain things or clear his idea.
 


And Mikasa –despite the not so encouraging start- definitely looked up to him as a competent soldier and captain, and this was obvious from the female titan Arc where she decided to assume the responsibility for the Humanity’s strongest soldier ‘s injury, and this, is her clearly admitting his worth and statue ! 

-as opposed to some who picture her as self-delusional who considers herself better than levi.. Mikasa is wiser than that!-

 And with time, she has come to trust him. Even after he displayed roughness when dealing with Historia and everyone doubted him, she still chose to believe in him! And I don’t think she would’ve done that if she didn’t catch a glimpse of the person he is behind his tough cold exterior.

__________________________

Lately it looked as if Levi has started to crack, he’s lost so much, endured so much, and now that Kenny has reappeared evoking questions about his past and who he is, Levi doesn’t seem that level-headed and unflappable person he used to be, If anything  a hint of vulnerability has started to creep in. 


So maybe it’s time for Mikasa to help him! Not only in matter of strength and fighting –which I think will indeed happen in the Ackerman showdown-  

But maybe Mikasa will even act as a new stabilizing force for him, an unspoken close support in this whole past/origins thing they share!  And I’m sure Mikasa has the strength needed to knock him out of whatever can absorb him .

If she becomes a person that he cares for and wants to protect, this might even give him more determination, kind of like when Eren is stronger when he needs to protect his loved ones .

It would be nice to see this side of Levi, he was good to Eren but that’s what any good captain would’ve done, I want to see a more personal aspect of the way Levi shows his care!  

Not to say this will protect him from danger, since the presence of such a person might only expose him more to it! And I totally see a scenario of Levi dying for someone else but that’s another story!

And It goes both ways..

For Mikasa, this new discovery about herself and origins will certainly trouble her in a way or another, and I’m certain that Levi’s presence will make things a lot easier for her.

Think of how it’ll be great for her to know that she’s not alone in this, that she has a support?
Not someone from her peers, not exactly a friend, someone more mature, someone she can rely on, and can lead her through this unknown path that opened from her past.

She had and will always have Eren and Armin, but her bond with Levi will be different and I think it will help her to mature more and will add a lot to her personality.


I don’t want to expand so much on what I WANT to happen rather than what’s ACTUALLY HAPPENING!  I already did though

but I’m really looking forward to a close -really close- duo dynamic!

In short this growing bond between Levi and Mikasa has a great potential and will hopefully help both of them grow even more :)

Isayama has put quite an effort in building their relationship and I really want to see where he will take it!

Who wants to talk about polymachina soulmate marks? I’m a sucker for fics with soulmate marks, especially ones where people get more than one, and like there’s so many ways to spin in like, does the symbol represent the person? Is it their name? Is it the first thing they say to them? 

All the options are great, okay. I’ve seen the first two a bunch and I love them, but let me submit for consideration:

  • Vax with a big ‘NO’ on his back, just over his heart (it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it’s one of the first things to come out of his sister’s mouth)
  • Vex with ‘Mine’ written in the same spot in the same deep navy blue color (no one’s surprised, twins are often platonic soulmates, and it’s clear Vex and Vax are two halves of a whole)
  • But they have other words too
  • There’s a rich purple ‘well hello to you too’ running down Vax’s side (and somehow when Gilmore says it, it sounds exactly the way he always thought it would)
  • What makes less sense is the great gray handprint on his lower back and the magenta music notes curling around his arm
  • (It makes sense when Grog introduces himself with a smack to the chest that knocks Vax off his feet and Scanlan does so with a wordless melody)
  • The ‘oh, um, hi’ on the inside of his his left arm makes perfect sense when he meets Keyleth (what’s weird is the matching words they both share on the inside of the right that they don’t recognize until they meet Kashaw)
  • Vex and Vax share the same golden word running down their spine and Pike has their greetings wrapped around her wrists
  • Grog’s not sure what to make of his until he meets Pike. Goliath’s typically have imprints of hands, not words (she first reads out her own words that stretch across Grog’s shoulders almost like wings)
  • She laughs gently as she reads out ‘well aren’t you a big fella’ and ‘please don’t step on me’ 
  • He tries to sound out her words when Pike lets him see them. He does alright with the big ‘I’m so sorry’ on her shoulder (the ‘hello gorgeous’ on her right leg gives him a bit more trouble)
  • Sometimes he wishes his were words too, but that fades when he finds just where his hand fits (on Vax’s back, Vex’s waist, Keyleth’s shoulder, Percy’s leg, Scanlan’s ass) 
  • Pike’s always liked the big gray hand that covers one of her own, it’s her favorite (the neat scrawl in celestial on the side of her neck is a close second)
  • It’s a shock to Percy that he seems to be covered in words, a ‘hey there handsome’ across his lower back and a matching ‘are you alright, darling’ over his chest, and a long rambling string of words in red that covers most of his back 
  • He’s never sure just when the words on his back turned gray, but he notices when the matching red on Keyleth’s arm fades just the same
  • Keyleth loves her words, they’re a rainbow on her skin (the deep gray handprint and dark brown words on her right arm give her pause, but she comes to love them just the same)
  • Her fingers like to trace the golden greeting on her clavicle and the ‘you poor dear’ on the back of her hand in vibrant teal
  • She used to love the bright, almost glittering ramble that ran down her arms (it feels like a part of her rips away when the letters fade and grow dull)
  • But it hurts less after a while, the words become a sad memory, but at least she always has a piece of him on her skin. If she closes her eyes, she can almost hear the wind whisper the words to her

I just really like these kinds of aus, might do more like this later. But I would also love to see what other people prefer in terms of what the marks are. I’ve seen a bunch of fics with this au and they’ve all been amazing, and I think there’s always room for more!

Rob and Kristen both have many wonderful, loyal fans. I've met quite a few and hope I count as one. Therefore, it's upsetting to see childish, immature, hostile and vicious fans attacking the FSR writer for writing about two people who have always been (yes, still are) each other's greatest fan & support. Sad that in a piece lavishly praising Rob, they can't handle even brief mentions of Kristen who he relied on and confided in as his fame took off, as he found his way in Hollywood. Fuck 'em!

I’m back to add a note on the Film School Rejects piece: Rob’s true fans would have done FAR better protesting the author’s insulting, unfounded psychoanalysis of why Rob has chosen certain roles. It was NOT respectful or based on facts, yet instead petty fans choose to focus on K, K, K rather than truly supporting Rob’s work.


Hello RKFan…

I agree that they do have many many loyal fans and based on your comments here I would count you in as a fan as well.

I will never understand these childish “fans” that insist on voicing fandom pettiness with professional critics.  I don’t get the petulant ones that invade my inbox daily.

Even though I very much know that Rob and Kristen are still together, I can no longer really blame those that believe that they aren’t.  RK have done a really good job of confusing and controlling their true relationship status so it’s no wonder that ppl are confused.  

BUT!

That will never give these assholes justification for being immature asshats!  Maybe someday their learn that it doesn’t work to fight me!

As for that article.  I read it and was also frankly irritated by it.  

NOT because the writer discussed Twilight or that he brought up Kristen.

I WAS irritated because he, as many male critics do, dissed Twilight.  I’m really sick of them dismissing the film franchise as “less than” when it engaged audiences as much as it did.  HOW can a film franchise that earned over $3BILLION just at the box office be underrated?  Were there flaws?  Sure.  As there are with all movies.  But no flaws that deserve the ranker the film as well as Rob and Kristen endure.

But, wait that’s because these are stupid men and are dismissing what women embrace.  Someday hopefully sooner rather than later filmmakers and critics can start making films with female audience in mind even better than Twilight.

I also take issues as you did FAN, with how the writer discusses Rob and his film choices since Twilight.  It’s very clear that he is analyzing Rob and hasn’t bothered to read any interviews where Rob discussed the hows and why’s of how he chooses the films he wants to do.

Rob and Kristen’s mirror each other a lot in how they choose the films they want to tackle.  But it makes sense doesn’t it?  The main difference in their process  Rob seems a bit more analytical and Kristen relies more on her intuition and emotional connection with the material.  But neither are as concerned with whether they are the lead in the film and both make decisions based somewhat in who they will be working with!  And neither seem that concerned with how much money or attention a project will garner.

Finally, I could not disagree with the writer more in regards to Kristen’s acting.  

DETACHED?  

Is he smoking a bad batch of crack??  

Kristen is anything but detached.  That’s why she’s so good.  She could never participate in a film that she wasn’t connected to that she didn’t see an aspect of herself in.  Again this is why she is so fucking good at what she does.  She embodies these characters because they represents aspects she either recognizes within herself or aspects she wishes to bring out.  She doesn’t play them!  As for her tics that she brings to her characters, what I find amazing is that she can and does often rid herself of her own personal tics.  She will bring other characteristics to her roles to bring those characters to life.  But even if we do see that she runs her hand through her hair in some of her films…guess what ppl…many of us run our hands through our hair.  We do it in all kinds of situations, so why wouldn’t an actress in appropriate moments run their hand through their hair in a scene?  Or bite their lips…etc.  How is this a bad thing!

Is that what this critic expects? That actors be wooden and not act naturally in a film?   Kristen and Rob both bring natural, realistic “tics” to their characters.  Just as every actor have their own tics and trade marks to each of their characters.

One of the things Rob can’t help but bring to every character he inhabits is how he holds his hands.  The “rubber” aspect of his fingers.  He can’t change this…it’s a part of Rob and a part he’ll never be able to bury.  And why would we want or expect something like that to change??  Oh, and Rob often licks his lips.  Ohhhh the horror…..LOL

Anyway I had not planned on posting anything regarding that article because for anything that I found positive, there was much more that I found to be dismissive and utter horseshit.  But for anyone keeping track.  I discussed these issues behind the scenes and here on my blog.  I did NOT attack the writer directly.  These may be his observations and he’s free to have them as much as I think they suck.

Hello!! I love your blog. I wonder... What about a RFA react to a MC having real bad menstrual pain? Sorry If it's too harsh ;; I experience it myself. I just can't sleep, I cry and struggle a lot bc I have cysts and I can't get a surgery atm ;;

Hey ! Could u do MC on her period and RFA+saeran(if u’d like to) what will they do and how would they react to her being super moody and stuff, thank u and have a great day ^ ^

dude I get godawful cramps too if I forget to take my birth control, I know exactly how you feel (I haven’t been diagnosed but my mom seems to think there’s a really good chance I have cysts too ;v; ) I hope you’re able to feel better soon friend! <3

Yoosung

  • Initially, PANIC
    • He’s sooooo worried to see you in such pain; he frets all over the place and practically jumps at any chance to do something for you to help you feel better
  • Once he’s used to it, though, it still upsets him to see you suffering like that but he’s gotten super good at coming up with nice ways to help you relax and take your mind off the pain
    • Boy spends half his monthly budget on you; chocolate, heating pads – he also researches online “best remedies for cramps” and buys pretty much anything those articles list
    • A common thing he’ll do is gather all the blankets in the house and have you buried in them with a cute movie on and a mug of hot chocolate. He’s right there under the covers with you for both moral support and heat, heheh
  • At first he’s shocked by your mood swings, but after a few times he recognizes that it’s just a part of the whole process. As long as you apologize for any injustices against him (snapping, yelling, etc), he’s able to handle things pretty well

Zen

  • On your bad days, Zen is practically your personal butler, at your beck and call no questions asked
    • Tries his best to make food for you from scratch because he wants to show you how much he cares! He tries recipes that include ingredients that supposedly help cramps
    • …but will be discreetly relieved if you say takeout is fine
  • He read online that exercise helps, so he urges you to work out with him or go for a walk/jog (idk about anyone else but exercise does legit work for me as unfortunate as that is lol)
  • Will give you really nice massages wherever you’re achy and it’s sooo good

Jaehee

  • Jaehee’s gotcha, my friend. She knows the drill
    • Although her cramps don’t seem to be quite as severe as yours… she offers her sympathies, for what they’re worth (THEY’RE WORTH A LOT, JAEHEE SHH)
    • That’s probably for the best tho since your guys’ periods start to sync up, and it would suck if you were both completely incapacitated
  • Mood swings? She understands those too, of course. Always ready with your favorite blend of tea or coffee and a sympathetic ear for when your mood drops
  • Continuing from synced periods, on days where both your cramps are bad you take the opportunity to snuggle under a big blanket and marathon Zen’s musicals, drifting in and out of sleep
    • If things get real bad for both of you and you happen to complain in the messenger, cUE ZEN HIMSELF BUSTIN’ DOWN YOUR DOOR WITH CARE PACKAGES and he stays till you’re both feeling better

Jumin

  • The first time he sees this whole thing he COMPLETELY PANICS
    • Boy thinks you’re legitimately dying and is ready to frickin call in a helicopter to airlift you to the hospital or something before you calm him down and explain that this is, while painful and inconvenient, completely normal
  • He is… very uninformed about periods. Like honestly I have a feeling he doesn’t even know what periods are before you come along
    • But of course he takes it upon himself to research the topic extensively (JUMIN NO JAEHEE DOES NOT NEED TO WRITE A REPORT ON IT FOR U DO IT URSELF)
    • By the end of it he knows more than you do oh god
  • On days you hurt especially bad, he’ll work from home so he can stay with you and comfort you any way you want. 
    • At first he tries to suggest a bunch of stuff that his money can buy or other people can do for you, but he’s stunned into silence when you tell him you’d just like to cuddle. He just hadn’t even considered that might help 
    • But then he happily obliges <3

Seven

  • Hates hates hates seeing you in pain, so he tries to get you to laugh even more than usual to get your mind off it
  • Adds a “heating pad” functionality to the robocat, where it’ll heat up and lay on your abdomen
    • “Seven you know I could have just bought a normal heating pad…”
    • “But MC, this one’s shaped like a CAT. And it’s free. And made from scratch with my love~”
    • …can’t argue with that lol
  • Takes your mood swings in stride; he’s prepared with an arsenal of bad jokes to diffuse crankiness (but is also 100% ready to offer serious comfort if your mood falls really low)

Saeran

  • Boy knows even less about periods than Jumin does lbh
  • He can’t empathize with it and certainly won’t pretend to, but he believes you when you describe the pain you’re in
    • He’s actually rather frustrated/angry because 
    • 1) why can’t he punch the thing that’s causing you pain and make it STOP 
    • 2) who the hell thought “you know what’d be good? making people with uterus’ bodies turn against them and cause them extreme pain once a month for absolutely no reason”
  • Goes and buys you your supplies without batting an eye, which you’re grateful for. If anyone gives him weird looks at the store he just gives them his Withering Glare™ and whaddya know nobody bothers him (god people are stupid he thinks)
  • He can relate to mood swings. But, at least at first, he’s not quite sure what to do about it
    • Slightly to his chagrin, he goes to ask Seven for advice in the beginning
    • When Seven’s advice is found to be utterly useless, Saeran eventually finds that actually just sitting and listening to you helps a lot

anonymous asked:

What would you say are the biggest changes to Luffy's character post-ts? I've been trying to put it into words but I can't put my finger on anything.

I don’t think that Luffy’s character has changed very much between pre- and post-time skip. There are some little things that I think are different, which I’ve written about in place like here and here (as of now the anime hasn’t gotten to those scenes yet FYI). But on the whole I don’t think his character has changed very noticeably. 

In fact, over the course of the entire series, Luffy’s character has been highly consistent. Luffy is certainly a very multi-faceted character with a wonderful amount of depth to him, but he hasn’t really changed/developed that much between when he set out to sea at the start of the series and now. Most of the character exploration that Luffy has gotten during the series involves his reactions to different kinds of stressful situations. Some of the main ones include:

None of these things really changed Luffy. Not in the long-term at least. Ace’s death was probably the most traumatic experience of Luffy’s life, and it seriously shook him. One of the many scenes that reflects that was Luffy’s cry of “I’m no Pirate King! I’m still… so weak!” Luffy has always been insistent that he’s going to be the one to be the Pirate King, and he’ll fight anyone on a moments notice if they challenge him on that front. It doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran pirate with a bounty triple what Luffy’s is with a far superior Devil Fruit who already kicked Luffy’s ass on another occasion or whatever–Luffy’s confidence in himself and his ability to achieve his goals has always been unshakable. But after Marineford, after Ace died protecting Luffy from an enemy neither of them could stand up against, Luffy recognized just how far away he really was from his dream, and was filled with pain and regret over Ace’s loss, and denounced his earlier confidence in himself.
However, it didn’t stick. Shortly after the time skip, Luffy announced his goal of becoming Pirate King to Rayleigh, signifying that he has regained his confidence and belief in himself. All this certainly was a hell of an experience for Luffy to have gone through, and it explored his character and fleshed him out, but it didn’t change him.

Many shonen stories are about their protagonist changing. Changing for the better to become something more, as a person, than what they started as. A lonely child with no family or friends, growing up through many difficult battles and becoming beloved by his whole village. A kid who starts out powerless in a society full of people with powers, finding out that he too can become a hero. A meek boy who suddenly finds himself thrust into a position of great responsibility that he never asked for slowly growing more and more confident with himself as he overcomes the struggles he is forced to face. Lots and lots of stories in this genera have this kind of underlying theme, explored in a variety of different ways.

But I think One Piece is a little different. One Piece doesn’t really seem to be about Luffy growing, changing, learning new lessons and improving who he is as a person. If anything, One Piece is about a person who is already fine as he is–about a person whose great confidence in himself, his absolute faith in his friends, and his unyielding determination, are the keys he needs to achieve his dreams, and keys that he already holds. Luffy can be pretty darn stupid, impulsive, selfish, gullible, and silly. But none of things are presented as things that he needs to “grow out of.” Of course, Luffy still learns lessons from time to time. He still experiences grave losses that he needs to overcome. And of course, he’s grown tremendously in strength. However, the fundamental parts of his character like his confidence, the ease with which he makes friends, his ability to inspire the people around him, and his conviction have been with him ever since he set out on that tiny little boat from Foosha Village without a single crew mate or a single beli to his name. Just look at what was going on at the very, very start of the series

And at the Baratie, Sanji started off as a character who believed that it was stupid to follow your dreams if it meant risking your life 

But Luffy demonstrated to Sanji, with a bit of explanatory help from Zeff, that confidence and resolve can be even more powerful than an entire fleet and a massive array of shiny weapons: 

But you know, Sanji… No matter how many hundreds of weapons or armor one is equipped with, they’re no match for that ‘one special spear’ that comes from your guts… On the pirates’ battlefield where life and death are decided, the one who fears death and hesitates for even an instant shall fall to their doom. Within that boy, if nothing else…

And by the end of the battle, Luffy had changed Sanji’s understanding of the subject and left quite an impression on him 

Luffy’s confidence is meant to be inspirational–his conviction, his resolve, his determination–has been a force of good for many of the struggling people he has met. Coby, Nami, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Brook, and plenty more. Luffy has provided an example to others that has given them the confidence to do the things they never believed they could, such as become a Marine, set out to sea in pursuit of their dreams, and find new hope when they believed they had lost everything. Luffy isn’t so much a character that learns how to be great, but a character that inspires others to live up to the greatness that everyone has the potential for. Luffy has arguably always had what it takes to be Pirate King, has always deserved, flaws and all, to achieve his dream. The story isn’t so much about Luffy changing in order to become a better, different person, but about him fighting to achieve and earn his dream while remaining true to the person he is in the face of adversity, and serving as an example to others in the process.

The Quinx Squad

My thoughts so far on the four little shits.


Urie Kuki

Urie has some issues obviously. His father’s death after being “abandoned” by his squad seemed to have a major impact on how he views others. 

Urie tend to mistrust everyone and seems to have translated in two ways The first being that he thinks ”I can only trust myself to get anything done and protect myself.”

The second is his derisive “almost everyone must be an idiot, shallow an a coward but myself” attitude. This possibly as a defense mechanism. I say it’s a defense mechanism because I think if he admits to himself that other people have worth and understandable worries then he’d have to admit that there was an understandable reason his father was left behind. That’s probably why he seems to purposefully find the worst things about people, because they can’t be worth anything, he has to have the moral high ground.  

He has to become the strongest he has to join S3 because he has to be above the ones who hurt him, he has to be more important  He envies and idolizes the strong, he has to become indispensable and self sufficient because he doesn’t want to get left behind not like his dad.

Urie is a danger to himself and others. Urie keeps everything inside his head he lets his anger and derision and stupid ass plans rot.

Urie is smart but because he never tells anyone anything he can’t tell when he’s over reaching himself. He seems to put other people in danger A.) Because he’s put himself in a place where they don’t matter to him and B.) He figures it’s not his problem if they can’t protect themselves.

Sasaki was right when he said Shirazu would be a better leader because he cares for the team. Urie has no business being a team leader when he’s shown over and over he doesn’t care about the team’s welfare or success as a unit. 

.Urie is a danger to himself because he often overestimates his own abilities and goes into situations he can’t get out of because he is so desperate to gain power and rank. He even goes so far as to mistreat his own body in the name of gaining more power, by having the frame opening procedure that could lead to the end of his humanity again medical and personal advice, and biting out chunks of his flesh.

If Urie and the rest of the team survive this arc, and he doesn’t open up to someone, or start trusting others I feel like he’s going to start falling into the dark depths of ghouldom and his own head, and eventually explode like an atomic bomb.

Urie Represents Kaneki’s I have to do everything myself attitude.


Saiko Yonebayashi

Saiko seems like a lot of students from back when i was in High School. When you pushed these types of students into an area of study where they felt out of their depth and did not voluntarily want to be they tended to stop trying. 

Saiko from what we’ve seen and heard never wanted to be a ghoul investigator and through her dialogue doesn’t think she’d ever be good enough for it. As a result she hides herself away and avoids her job at all costs.

Saiko’s relationship with her mother seems a little complicated. Saiko seems to have a very dependent nature both for her emotional and physical needs. She still seems to love her mother, having called her mommy and worked in her mothers snack bar despite being mistreated by her.

 I get the feeling that Saiko often tried for her mothers attention and did what she could to get it but in the end because her mother was so wrapped up in her success never got much affection. She also seemed to develop a similar coping habit as Kaneki with his books only in her case it was manga, anime and nerd culture. 

As she grew up she was probably so wrapped up in it and lacking any real skills in coping with and living in the real world (she can’t even cook) because her mother who was dependent on her husbands and now daughter for money never taught her them. and so she became a neet. 

On the bright sideI really like Saiko’s rather silly sense of humor she does seem to liven up a room whenever she talks or teases.

Going on with the school analogy. People that don’t have a lot of support in their own lives will often attach themselves emotionally to some other authority figure who shows them affection often a teacher. Haise is like Saiko’s nickname suggests her surrogate mother who provides her the affection she desparately wants.

People in these types of situations often do not want to disappoint their surrogate parent. As such Saiko doesn’t want to disappoint Haise and will at least try to do her job even if she has no real idea what she’s doing.

In the end I only three different options for Saiko to survive. 1 Saiko shapes up and start training. 2 She can attempt to stop working for the CCG. 3 She can show some previously untapped potential that goes with her title of most compatible quinx (which she seems to be doing now haha).

Saiko represents Kaneki’s initial unwillingness to fight, as well as his past with a poor uncaring parental figure.


Mutsuki Tooru

One of Mutsuki’s biggest struggles so far has been fear. Fear of people and ghouls, fear of losing humanity. Mutsuki is constantly trying to overcome these fears.

Funnily enough Mutsuki’s two fears solutions seem to be in stark contrast with one another. In order not to fear ghouls Mutsuki must r become a better investigator and learn how to use a kagune. However Mutsuki fears growing stronger will mean losing humanity. 

One way Mutsuki seems to try and overcome fear is through analysis. Mutsuki always seem to want to know everything possible about a situation before entering into it and as probably is probably the most critical thinker of the group on long term projects.

I feel like Mutsuki can be overly self critical at times, and quite obviously has self worth issues. While in some ways such as being unable to use a kagune Mutsuki is seen as somewhat weaker than the rest of the quincke.

Mutsuki definitely has strengths. When in situations of great fear Mutsuki’s does fight with determination and sincerely seems to want to help, and while freezing at first isn’t the best option Mutsuki has never run away from a fight with others involved.

I think it’s safe to assume that some time in the past Mutsuki was probably sexually assaulted. There is many suggestions towards it from an overall fear of the male gaze, the scar on Mutsuki’s breast, the way Mutsuki can recognize a predatory male stare and seemed to imagine a club goer thinking “Rape,rape.”

The funny thing about this though is there never a direct indication that this is connected with a ghoul, it’s always just “men”. This paired with the fact that the death of Mutsuki’s parents and brother are often gossiped about being Mutsuki’s fault makes me think there could be much more to this back-story than there first appears. 

As for Mutsuki’s gender I’ll be brief. I don’t know. Mutsuki felt very uncomfortable living as a woman and wanted to live as a man but at the same time thinks aloud that their mind isn’t like a man. So maybe Mutsuki doesn’t feel comfortable as either. That’s why I’m only referring to Mutsuki by their name, I’m waiting to pass judgement until I get solid confirmation, please don’t hate me.

Mutsuki’s future is a little uncertain in my eyes. It has been suggested that Mutsuki may have already fed on a human to survive.

 I hope Mutsuki grows stronger and more secure overcoming fear but there is always the possibility Tooru could fall in the pursuit of strength much like Kaneki.

Mutsuki represents fear of losing his humanity, as well as his original shy and naive nature, and his contrasting purposes.


Shirazu Ginshi

I adore Shirazu Ginshi. Shirazu has a very kind nature overall even if he often insults the ones he cares about. He also honestly seems to care about the others in his squad (even people who don’t deserve it). 

Initially when he became angry with Sasaki and went off rebelliously with Urie his main reason was he was lied to and told that Sasaki was only out for his own promotion and didn’t care about the group. 

Shirazu seems to value those who care about others, which we see when he defends Haise for being a half-ghoul which and makes sense giving his own kind nature.

When in a lower position Shirazu seemed more rebellious, but once he was put in a position of power and learned to respect his leader Shirazu became much more diligent even if he feels unworthy at times. As he feels unworthy he’s trying very hard to live up to his new rank.

Also Shirazu, honestly cares about the success of their mission and the group’s safety as a whole.

Even if I know he joined the CCG for the money his nature an integrity makes me feel he has a very good reason (possibly someone named Haru?).

Shirazu is an important linchpin in the quinx as he is the lone extrovert amoungst them. Urie doesn’t want to work with anyone, Saiko is a neet, Mutsuki is just plain shy, for all Haise tries to do he’s generally softhearted and quiet in nature, and fears hurting feelings most of the time. Shirazu is loud and active pulling people out of their rooms starting conversations with Tooru, kicking Urie in the face. Without Shirazu I think you’d find the quinx household a very quiet place indeed.

He can also sometimes set the lead for how others should behave and I think it’s important to note that Shirazu was the first person to become comfortable enough with Haise to joke around him.

Some people act as if Shirazu is an idiot when he really isn’t. Shirazu is brash and tends to react immediately which means sometimes he says and does things without thinking them through properly (and has a bad temper). 

He speaks his mind and often acts on his emotions. Shirazu’s greatest strengths seem to lie in his quick thinking, empathetic and perceptive nature. 

For instance in Chapter 28 he was able to figure out how Nut’s traps work and quickly hatched a plan to use her own strength against her. 

Plus on a side note Shirazu’s quick reacting nature pairs well with his Ukaku kagune.

I fear for Shirazu sometimes. He has strength and intelligence on his side and seems to be getting his brash nature under better control. but as far as we have learned he’s a fairly innocent character who hasn’t suffered badly in life, and we all know what happens to innocent characters in Tokyo Ghoul (just ask Takizawa and Hinami).

Shirazu represents Kaneki’s protective nature, as well as his ability to think on his feet .

Hi, I'm a new fan of The NBHD's music. I can't call myself an Hoodlum (yet) bc I have a silly rule for myself: If you don't know & love all the members, don't call yourself a fan lol. I'm 14 and live in Asia so I don't even have the slightest chance to meet them, also the info about them is very rare :( I have been hopelessly searching about them since last week then came across your tumblr & omg I love you and your blog! Could you give me some info about each members? Thanks :)

You’re already a fan because you like their music, but I completely agree, in order to be a hoodlum, it takes much more than that. Hm okay, so where do I start? (and thank you so much by the way for saying you love my blog, it seriously means alot). So first off, The Neighbourhood members USED to be

Jesse, Mikey, Zach, BRYAN SAMMIS and Jeremy
They never spoke too clearly about why Bryan had to separate from the band. At first it seemed as though he had chose to leave so he could work on his own music but as time went on, in interviews it would be hinted out that there was some tension and being together felt more like a job than it did working with friends. Bryan was my favorite member. He knew who I was before we even formally met. He was the most interactive with the fans and one of the funniest. His solo music is pretty good, if you want to give that a listen here’s the link to his soundcloud (he goes by both Bryan and Olivver, and no the second v was not a typo) https://soundcloud.com/olivver-1

This separation didnt happen too long ago. The band itself is fairly new. They grew immediate attention after writing sweater weather (which was also the first song they all wrote together) They all knew eachother before becoming a band, (Zach and Mikey are the closests though). 

CURRENT MEMBERS
Jesse, Zach, Brandon, Mikey, Jeremy

Jesse is the lead singer and the member people know most about. Not just because he is the lead singer but also because he puts himself out there a lot. He is present in if not all, most interviews and therefore its easy for most fans to fall in love with him. Before the neighbourhood became popular, he was in a serious relationship with a girl named Serena. He wrote a couple songs about her (or at least we believe he did, songs like STING) and we’re not sure why they broke up but most fans were really happy about their relationship. He was single for quite a while before getting together with Anabel Englund, the fan base seemed to be very upset about it. Most argued it was because of the way she presented herself (some people thought it was skanky) but it didn’t stop them from being together and with time people began to love them (Ship name was/is Anese). Now, its not certain but it’s argued that they broke up (they unfollowed eachother on Twitter and Instagram). Jesse is also very sensitive. If you haven’t seen it already in their Afraid video, he is completely naked and he felt very unappreciated when the video didn’t even reach a million views because he completely put himself out there and he went on a sad rant on twitter. It broke most fans hearts and it sparked a fan page trend. I believe at least one fourth of the neighbourhood fan pages that are active today were made after that. Asides from all that mushy stuff, he’s super funny and a confident guy. 

Zach Abels is one of the guitarists of the band and is by far the second most famous member of the band. Its funny because on twitter he is described to be the more sassy one and he always has been but in person he isn’t like that at all. He might not be as tall but he’s just as sweet as Jesse when it comes to the fans.

Mikey Margott is the bass player. He is the youngest of the group and grew up knowing how to play the drums but they really wanted him in the band so they taught him how to play bass (Bryan was already the drummer). He is super sweet and asides from Brandon, he is the member we may know least about, personality wise. He doesn’t have anything but instagram and he doesn’t use it that much. Also, he isn’t present in most interviews so its hard to really say you love him from anything other than maybe meeting him after a concert or the pictures posted of him by photographers and fans. What we do know is that since young, his best friend has always been Zach, he is the band’s barber and for over four years he’s been in a committed relationship with the lovely Lauren Leekley. (which all fans love)

Jeremy Freedman is the other guitarists and the most unappreciated member. I remember meeting them after the iHeartRadio live series and everyone flocked around Jesse while Jeremy was pretty much by himself. After talking to him for a bit I realized how funny he was and being the selfish person I am, I was sort of happy that I could have a conversation with him without being interrupted by other fans. He gives himself these crazy nicknames that work and it only shows about 2% of his sense of humor. Jerry Hot Licks, The Pussy Destroyer and more.  

Bryan Sammis was their drummer. I spoke about him before but he really was my favorite. He always responded to fans on twitter and was even nicer in person. The first time I saw him I didnt have to say anything, he saw the gift I was ready to give him and he knew who I was and that really meant a lot to me. The second time I saw him he recognized me (as did Jesse, they do a good job of remembering faces) and he was very chilled and cool about having a one on one conversation with me.

Brandon Fried is the new drummer. Although he may be a new member, he’s known them since highschool. He’s into Seahawk football and eating gyros and that’s pretty much all I know. He seems like a really funny and chilled guy he just hasn’t been in the band long enough for me to say much in confidence. 

I wish we knew more about their personal lives but the only person who we can really say we all know is Jesse and even then, we dont know everything. I hope this helped, if you have any more questions let me know!

Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Request from anon: Steve Rogers imagine? The reader gives Steve a list of songs that he should know from when the time he missed. The list includes famous songs and her personal favorites. One night, they’re both at her apartment and she has her music on shuffle. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli (from the list) starts playing. They dance around the living room and share their first kiss. Flash forward. Steve and the reader are dancing their first dance as husband and wife to the song. Thanks much. :)

————–

“So, I finally had time to listen to a few of those songs you suggested to me. Seems like a missed quite a bit.”

Steve smiled as he stood up from the couch, walking into the kitchen as he grabbed a bottle of wine from the counter.

“Well, nearly 70 years of music culture is bound to be a pretty extensive thing.”

Giggling, you shut off the credits of the movie the two of you had just finished viewing and walked over to the iHome you had recently purchased Steve, in hopes of helping him catch up with the times.

“I guess so. Wine hasn’t seemed to change too much though, and for that, in grateful. Would you like a glass?”

“Yes, I would. Thank you.”

You flashed a sweet smile back at him over your shoulder as you hooked up your iPod to the device.

“Hey, where’s the remote for this thing? I wanna make sure you know how to use it, Gramps.”

Glancing around, you scoured the coffee table for the small black remote, until Steve cleared his throat. Lifting your gaze to look at him, you could see he had the remote in his hand and a smirk on his face as he clicked play.

“Let’s leave the name-calling to Tony.”

With a grin, he walked toward you, extending his arm to hand you your glass of wine. However, before you could take it, he set it down on the counter beside you, where he also placed his own glass.

“Nice try, but my hand is over here.”

You laughed and went to reach for the glass of crimson liquid, only to have your hand stolen away by Steve’s own.

“We’ll get to that in a minute. This is one of your favorite songs, right?”

Listening to the song laying through the speakers, you recognized it as “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Frankie Valli; a song you had made it a point to include on the list.

“Yes, it is. You remembered.”

Returning the smile that he beamed down at you, you placed your free hand on his shoulder, allowing him to slip his other hand around your waist delicately as he began to lead you around the living room of his apartment, swaying you back and forth to the music as he began to him the tune softly in your ear.

You sighed gently, allowing yourself to relax in his hold as you pressed your forehead into the crook of his neck, thinking sadly about how the words resonated with your own personal feelings towards the man before you.

‘But if you feel like I feel
Please tell me that it’s real
You’re just to good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you’

“This one is my favorite too, you know.”

Steve spoke thoughtfully as he pulled away, just slightly to gaze down at you.

“Why’s that?”

You gazed up and found your eyes locked with his.

“Because it reminds me of you.”

His gentle voice sent shivers up your spine as he loved closer once again, this time leaning in to press his lips to yours, sending fireworks shooting off in every nerve ending your body held.

You closed your eyes, savoring the moment. This was one of those moments that you would remember for the rest of your life.

'The rest of your life together.’ You thought to yourself happily as you pulled away from the kiss, smiling brightly at the man who had just become your husband.

The both of you blushed as everyone around you clapped and cheered, watching you take your first dance together as husband and wife.

“You know, I still can’t take my eyes off you. I don’t think I ever will.”

Steve was as suave as ever, looking so handsome in his tux that you swore it should be a crime. You bit your lip as you took in the magnificent sight of him, lifting your eyes to his as you spoke.

“I don’t think I will either. Great song choice, by the way.”

“Well, I had a little help.”

With a small wink twinkling in his eye, he leaned down and pressed his lips yours once more in a sweet, chaste kiss.

loremasterhelix  asked:

Do you think Tsunderplane is out of place in Undertale? All the other monsters are pretty similar in appearance. Most of them look like they could be organic, and none of them are all that much larger than a person; but Tsunderplane is a literal airplane. Not to mention the fact that the monster/human war probably took place many years before the invention of any sort of flying machine, so how could it have such a strong resemblance to one?

At first glance Tsunderplane feels very out of place in Undertale. However, with a little examining, it actually fits in quite well with the consideration of another monster: Alphys.

First, here is a summary of what sets Tsunderplane apart:

1.) Mechanical

Tsunderplane is the only other mechanical monster next to Mettaton. Upon defeat, it will not turn to dust, but rather fall to the bottom of the battle screen, crash, and explode. The only other monster who explodes is Mettaton EX / NEO, whose body was created by Alphys. 

2.) Can identify humans

Tsunderplane is able to recognize humans, an unusual characteristic considering most monsters don’t recognize Frisk at all. Alphys is quite familiar with humans thanks to her appreciation for anime. Human knowledge and anime seem to go hand in hand.

3.) Anime

Tsunderplane is a flying collection of anime tropes, particularly the “tsundere” archetype. Throughout the battle, it says line after line of cliché tsundere phrases. As an added bonus, Tsunderplane appears to be wearing a hat very similar to Remilia Scarlet, an iconic character from The Touhou Project. While other monsters make occassional anime references, Tsunderplane seems to be the only creature that is dedicated to anime tropes. Of course, Alphys is the leading anime fanatic of the Underground. Alphys even uses the word “tsundere” in one of the ending calls.


While it cannot be proven outright, one speculation is that Alphys is responsible for Tsunderplane’s existence. She has the skills necessary to build it from scratch, as evident by the success of Mettaton. Tsunderplane’s rampant anime references would be included due to Alphys’ love for anime. Its ability to recognize humans is also due to its connection with anime.

But why an airplane? Well… why not? Perhaps Alphys found images of commercial airplanes in the dump and thought it would be a fun challenge to build a smaller one from scratch. Then, the anime was added in as a result of her obsession with it. It also makes for a great joke. Tsunderplane is a thinly veiled pun, pronounced similarly to the word “tsundere.” It’s also a non sequitur gag, seeing as there is something funny about hearing cute anime phrases coming from a huge, mechanical vehicle.

Mettaton is described as a robot with a monster soul, making it seem as though he is one of a kind. So it is possible (though impossible to confirm) that Tsunderplane does not have a soul, and rather, is a highly intelligent AI made of metal and magic. Unlike other monsters, including Mettaton, there is no killed / spared sound effect when Tsunderplane is defeated – there is only an explosion. Whatever its origins may be, Tsunderplane is certainly a fun and memorable character.

Hi Caitlin, I hope you don't mind me asking this question, but you are like the biggest Leroux expert I know (I can't wait to buy your full translation!) I know Raoul would get disinherited for marrying Christine, but after Philippe's death, who would be around to disinherit him? Sorry if this seems silly.

Hi there! This is a really great question, and it doesn’t have a straightforward answer.

The shortest answer is that, with Philippe out of the picture, it is doubtful that Raoul could have been disinherited for *only* marrying Christine. It would have taken one (or both) of his older sisters challenging Raoul for his inheritance, and even then, I don’t think it could have been done.

Due to French inheritance laws, which I’ve discovered are even more convoluted that I’d previously understood, it was (and is) very difficult to disinherit an heir, since the French at the time didn’t use wills to transfer estates and so on, but instead used Napoleonic Code (the French still don’t use wills to transfer property, but instead are required by this outdated Code to divide their estate evenly between their heirs, which makes it very complicated for people who have children from second marriages, etc.). There is some precedence for disinheritance, such as Henri d’Orléans, comte de Paris (albeit a 20th century example), who disinherited several of his children for marrying below their stations. However, his son and heir overturned these acts of disinheritance after Henri’s death, and they were never widely recognized to begin with.

So if Philippe had survived and had been so inclined, he could have disinherited Raoul for marrying Christine, but it would have been difficult, not to mention damaging for the family, and it could have been overturned by Philippe’s appointed heir after Philippe’s death.

The way that Raoul could have lost his inheritance for good, however, is if he were tried and convicted of Philippe’s murder. In French law, if one is convicted of being principal or accessory to murder or attempted murder of a person from which one was in line to inherit, one is barred from taking any interest in that person’s estate.

If Raoul had been found after Philippe’s body was discovered, Raoul would have gone to trial, and would quite possibly have been convicted of Philippe’s murder — remember that M. Faure, the examining magistrate, thought that the Persian (Raoul’s primary alibi) was a lunatic. With Raoul’s whereabouts unknown, M. Faure was unable to truly close the case. For lack of evidence, he concluded that Raoul had gone mad and disappeared, and that Philippe’s death had been an accident. But Raoul had already been tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. The majority of people believed that Raoul had killed Philippe. And if Raoul had resurfaced to claim his inheritance and his title, he would have been dragged through the mud. More than this, his whole family would have been dragged down right along with him. Raoul knew this. He couldn’t go home. Perhaps he stayed in contact with his sisters, but he couldn’t claim his title and inheritance. I’d like to think that maybe his sisters were charitable enough to send him money so that he and Christine didn’t have to live in utter poverty, but Leroux’s narrator gives no indication of this in the story. He simply says that no one ever discovered what had become of Raoul and Christine, which means that if his immediate family knew of his whereabouts, and were helping him survive, they kept it a very close secret.

According to Leroux’s narrator, Raoul and Christine left France, and traveled north to Scandinavia, eventually settling in Norway, a place where neither of them had ties, and where they could try to start anew with each other. But even there they were not free from their past, for as Leroux writes, “Peut-être un jour, entendrai-je de mes oreilles l’Écho solitaire du Nord du Monde, répéter le chant de celle qui a connu l’Ange de la Musique?…” — “Perhaps one day, shall I too hear with my own ears the solitary Echo of the North of the World recall the song of she who knew the Angel of Music?…”

Pauvres malheureux…

You're my go-to person for DA questions, so here goes! I'm on my second play through and I just encountered Mihris again. Solas was in my party (I can't help myself) and they had some words that seemed to make her pretty mad. I have a bug that doesn't let any of the subtitles come up though. What is he saying? They seem to know each other. Am I missing something about Mihris from another game? Thanks for your time.

This answer is a bit of a long one. First - their dialogue:

Inquisitor: How did you come to be here?
Mihris: I was - Am - First of Clan Virnehn. I left in service of my clan and saw that great tear in the Veil on my journey. I know more of magic and the Veil than any shemlen, so I hoped to help.
Solas: Ma harel, da’len.
Mihris: (shaken) I… we should keep moving.

Later, after activating the Elven Artifact:

Mihris: Well, that should prove useful. And it seems the ancestors left something for me as well. Interesting. I believe our alliance is concluded. Go in peace, stranger. 
Solas: Ma halani, ma glandival. Vir enasalin.
Mihris: I… perhaps you’re right. Here. Take it. 

Translation time. This will get into some spoiler territory for the novel Masked Empire.

Ma harel, da’len.

There is a popular translation that is floating around saying that this means “fear me, child”. Honestly, I don’t know why. It makes no sense in this context. To her, he’s nothing more than a flat ear who she literally JUST met. There is no reason for him to threaten her, nor does she have any reason to respond fearfully. 

The wiki says that harel means something that causes fear, but when you check the cited source within World of Thedas vol 1, “harel” is translated as “to trick or deceive”. I think the confusion is over the translation of Fen’Harel into Dread Wolf… which, realistically should be more like “Trickster Wolf” or “Deceiving Wolf”…. and if you take it back to it’s root word, it should be “Rebel Wolf”… but that’s another whole can of worms. I’ll stick with the canon translation - harel means to deceive.

Ma can mean “you/your” or “me/my” depending on the context. (ex. Ma nuvenin - your wish/as you wish; Ma vhenan - my heart; Ma halani - help me). 

He’s not saying “fear me”. He’s saying “you’re lying”.

She is no longer the First of Clan Virnehn and she did not leave them freely. Her clan was massacred. Solas either knows this or can sense that she is not telling the truth (more on that later). She is shaken because she was just caught in a lie and is redirecting the conversation away from the subject.

Ma halani, ma glandival. Vir enasalin.

This one is less straightforward. Glandival only appears here as well as in the ancient Elvhen poem in WoT vol 2 (pg 201):

Ir tel’ena glandival, vir amin tel’hanin.
When we could no longer believe, we lost glory to war.

Ir (very/more/I/I am) tel’ena (no longer appear/emerge/show the way to)… so perhaps glandival means belief/faith.

“Ma halani, ma glandival” could be something like “help me, your faith/belief”. Phrased differently, it could mean either “help me, in good faith” or “help me, believe me.” Vir means “way or path”. Enasalin means “victory”.

So, in total:

“Help me, in good faith. This is the path to victory.”
“Help me, believe me. This is the path to victory.”

Mihris comes from the novel The Masked Empire. Whether or not Solas and Mihris know each other, though, is a harder question to answer. 

There is a theory that Solas is actually an elf named Felassan (also from Masked Empire) who is serving as the vessel for Fen’Harel. If that were the case, they would know each other quite well. Felassan had a long-standing relationship with her Keeper and she was First of her clan. The idea that she would not recognize him is part of the reason I do not believe in this theory. I only mention it because, if it is true, they know each other quite well.

There is also a strong possibility that Felassan was an agent of Fen’Harel (in much the way Abelas served Mythal). If this is true, then it’s quite possible Solas is familiar with who Mihris is and/or the fate of her clan, though he would not know her personally.

Fun fact: if you tell her to leave, she angrily says “then may the Dread Wolf take you, fool!” 

anonymous asked:

Clarification between CP6w7 and 8w7? Been looking everywhere and I can't find satisfying answers. Can you put it into context too? Like let's see you get into a new workplace and you're in the lowest position and people have to boss you around, what are both reactions like? Also are 8w7's always aggressive? Do they always intimidate people around them? And can an 8 be taught to not be aggressive and therefore LOOK like a CP6? Would appreciate the answers, thanks.

And when an 8 disintegrates, can he look like a CP6? And to identify with a type, do you have to FULLY identify with it? As in agree with everything in written descriptions and core motivations?

One more thing, let’s say a CP6 and an 8 gets into an argument with each of their own friends. They both act aggressively towards them and go all-out and the friend then apologizes. They both realize they were maybe too harsh, what do they react like? Will the CP6 immediately comfort the person and the 8 will shrug it off? What’s most likely?

I love when people ask me interesting questions. 

First of all, the person who asked these questions is a 6. There are two reasons for this: the first is that 8s can almost always tell that they aren’t 6s, but 6s can’t always tell that they aren’t 8s. The second reason is that asking all of these questions exemplifies the systematic approach of 6.

At the core of every 6 is anxiety. Fear. Worrying that something might go wrong. This is because they are right in the center of the head triad, which deals with anxiety and fear. A counterphobic 6 is working against this fear; repressing it and doing what they’re afraid of. This can look like anger; they’re afraid, then they’re angry that they’re afraid, and then they do it. 

At the core of every 8 is anger. Raw, sharp energy. This is because they are in the gut triad, and they deal with anger by moving through it. An 8 moves through this energy in order to get what they want. 8w7s are more direct and active about this, while 8w9s are less direct but often unintentionally give off a vibe of subdued anger that causes people to bend to their will. 

The difference is that 8s aren’t angry because they’re afraid. This might be hard for a mistyped 6 to recognize about their own behavior, but you’re doing the counterphobic things that you do because you’re afraid. An 8′s core “fear” is being controlled by others, but I say “fear” because they don’t respond to it with fear; the thought of being taken advantage of or being controlled makes them angry. Again, for a 6 it might be difficult to differentiate between these two, because (as I said earlier), counterphobic 6s may mistake their counterphobic behaviors for fear. But I would classify Cp6 aggression as unfocussed, spilling over in multiple directions and for no real reason. 8 aggression is focussed, and is directed in specific directions based on what they want. 

In a work situation, 8s might be ok with being bossed around. As long as the 8 can leave the job and knew what it entailed before they took it, and the person or people bossing them around isn’t or aren’t doing it for fun but just because they have to give orders, then 8s tend to be rational enough to accept this and persevere. I’m not entirely sure how a Cp6 would act in this situation, but I’m guessing they would be more likely to quit and deal with the potential consequences from doing that. 

8s are always aggressive unless they have integrated. But this aggression isn’t necessarily obvious. But in 8s, especially 8w7s, there is a constant assertiveness and dominance. In my experience, yes, they always intimidate the people around them. It isn’t necessarily constant, but anyone who has been around them a couple times will have picked up on their intimidating energy. 

“Can an 8 be taught not to be aggressive and therefore LOOK like a CP6?” LMAOOOOOO this is such a non-8 (and a 6) thing to ask. No, an 8 can’t be taught to not be aggressive. 8s respond to being controlled with aggression, so someone trying to force them not to be aggressive would only make the 8 act aggressively towards them. Also, even if it were possible (again, it isn’t), an 8 taught not to be aggressive wouldn’t look like a Cp6. A Cp6 is aggression flying in multiple directions without a reason (unfocused). It isn’t a lack of aggression that makes me think “hey, this person is a Cp6, not an 8”, it’s a specific kind of aggression. If you want to compare aggression types, I would take a look at the blog @nerdnerdnerdistheword (he’s a Cp6), and @mbtiguy (she’s an 8).  

Yes, when an 8 disintegrates they can seem more like Cp6. But the core motivation of the 8 is now that they’re basically just in a bad mood, not because they’re being counterphobic. It’s also less of a general “I’m not afraid of anything” mentality and more of a “I’m angry and I want to pick fights with people”. Counterphobic 6s tend to be counterphobic in more aspects than one, so they’ll crash a party just to get a good selfie (true story) or do other risky and potentially dangerous things just because. 

Yeah, general rule of thumb when it comes to enneagram is that you should agree with 90% of the things about your type at the very least. If it feels more shaky than that, you need to study enneagram more and go through every type to get a complete picture. You should study enneagram even if it does feel about 90% fitting, because the more you study enneagram the more fitting your type should feel. 

If an Cp6 and an 8 get into a fight with their friend and then the friend apologizes, the 6 will probably be quicker to regret their actions. As I’ve said, Cp6 spews aggression in all directions without a purpose, which means if they realize they’re wrong they’re quicker to take it back, simply because their aggression doesn’t always fall in line with who they are. By contrast, an 8 will employ aggression when there’s a specific reason for it, so they will be unlikely to regret their actions. However, a 6 buried deep in counterphobia may temporarily regret it less. 

The best advice I can give you is to study enneagram thoroughly. Take a look at my enneagram: a guide post. But based on all of this, and if this is who I think it is, you’re a 6.

/heavy breathing/ ohmygodyesyeysyes okay so since i will go quite in depth with this, it’s going to be a quite long and heavy illustrating post, so i’m going to cut it and show mercy (and sorry for the bw shots but lets keep the aesthetic u v u asdfghj i will probably screw this but whatever) !! 

even if this post helps i’ll actually recommend you to watch their showtime, since this is actually one of the first things they talk about. this way you’ll also be able to get to know them through their actions!


okay, so let’s start of with a nice group ‘photo’. the amount of members can be a little overwhelming, but i promise i’ll try and make it easier for you to recognize them!

so lets be real, the first member almost everyone notices is kai

kai (AKA kim jongin, the one with the power to teleport) is one of the youngest, born in ‘94 and is the main dancer of EXO-K. he was the first one to arrive and last one to leave the practice room while being a trainee, and before he became a trainee he practiced ballet and jazz, so with a big scoop of passion you get breathtaking art:

i mean LOOK at his expressions, it’s crazy how much energy he puts into his perfomances (and celebrities have praised him for it!)

while everyone in EXO is charismatic, kai is especially ‘turned on’ while on stage, he’s pretty much a complete different person, hence why people sometimes differentiate him between ‘kai’, the dancer, and jongin, the sleepy fluffball off stage who loves chicken

he usually doesn’t have the biggest reaction to other performances. he doesn’t like wearing socks inside his shoes because it’s uncomfortable. he gets easily startled by fireworks and is a cutie towards his fans. for some reason he loves paperbags and he resembles asher from oh! my baby. his most famous ship in EXO is kaisoo (kai + kyungsoo). he also loves dogs (he calls his own his babies), his best friend is taemin from shinee and he is actually very wise and sensitive (he burst into tears when shinee won a big award at melon). if you want to spot him, look out for his blessed jawline, tan skin, deathly stare and perfect long legs!

the maknae AKA oh sehun is one of the towers (i swear this boy has grown over 10 cm in the past years) lead dancers and rappers with the power of wind manipulation!

he’s known for having a bitch face most of the time since his reactions tend to be lacking or delayed for some odd reason (lets be real he’s not very good w expressing himself) - BUT his golden moments are priceless.

his 꾹꾹이-faces are adorable! he’s also known for his weird sounds and sound effects, and ‘yehet’ and ‘ohorat’ have become an insider joke - if you see or hear these words it’s most likely fans who have heard it through this guy. despite his slender body, his booty (AKA sebooty) is a quite marvelous piece of work, to say the least (and can we just talk about how good he looks in an uniform???). 

he’s close to donghae from super junior (ffs look how tall he is!!) and his most famous ships are hunhan (they were each others visual twins in k and m - many people can’t tell them apart at first and the popularity of this ship in china was insane. they also had this weird mating dance), taohun and sekai. he has a habit of licking his lips waaay to much and in the early debut days he even had a lisp. his playfulness and sassiness has made him the ‘fourth’ member of the beagle-line. he loves chocolate bubble tea and although he seems to have a cold exterior (and some are even intimidated by him???), he’s a sensitive guy with a warm heart who prays for his members every night. this kid can literally rock any haircolour, from full on rainbow to chestnut heaven. his voice is veery deep, and even deeper when he is hoarse. if you want to recognize this tall kid, watch out for his pokerface and broad shoulders!!

d.o., also known as satansoo do kyungsoo is one of the main vocalists of EXO-K! he’s one of the shortest (if not the shortest) in EXO ( and has the power of strength/earth ) and his spins on stage, big eyes as well as the lack of shoulders (and let’s not forget his lovely velvety voice, perfect for R&B!!) makes him irresistibleeee

this little squishy boy has a great talent for beatboxing and his english pronunciation is the best in EXO - and even though he can’t speak it, he enjoys listening to musiq souldchild and watch american movies in his freetime. for some reason the members love to touch him and tease him?? he has astigmatism, which explains why he sometimes burn holes into objects. he has close to none reactions when watching others perform, only occasionally blinking and breathing every few minute (just to stay alive, you know). the members he ‘clashes’ most with is baekhyun and chanyeol and people are always joking about how he so easily gets annoyed (well just by baekhyuns existence, really) compared to kai

the amount of fanboys from other kpop groups he has is quite astonishing. he recently made his debut in acting and has been praised to the heavens for it. he’s close to ryeowook from super junior and is great at cooking, although he sadly doesn’t have a lot of time to make anything for them. he’s bad with words and suffers from stage fright (but only if he has to speak). kai and d.o. are absolutely adorable together and kai’s stares are so possessive sometimes it’s scary. he’s quite easy to spot, you just have to look out for a tiny little guy (look how freaking cute he is) with eyes as large as teacups /gets kicked/ aND an amazing voice that will swoon you !

byun baekhyun has received the nickname bacon because of mispronunciations (and apparently him and tao are beef brothers???), but is known for his eyeliner makeup and slender fingers !

baekhyun is a very dorky person (and i’d say the leader of the beagle-line) who loves to do aegyo for his fans, imitate his members and slap their ‘cute’ butts ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). when he smiles his mouth turns into a rectangle shape and his eyesmile is already level 900+ so you can’t really do anything but coo at this epitome of cuteness! his gf is taeyeon from girls generation and he’s apparently taehyung’s mama (can you figure out who’s who?). he invented the word ‘kkaebsong’ which is used when you regret something and feel like an idiot (like making a joke that’s not funny) or when you’re just sorry! he can manipulate light, and no wonder - look at him!

he touches his members frequently and accidentally hurts his face every so often. he makes heart gestures and his most canon otp is baekyeol (baekhyun+chanyeol). baekhyun is always loud (as expected by a main vocal!) whether it’s in his sleep or just … any time, really (you’ll always be able to hear him making weird sounds or singing in the background when they film back stage).

if you have trouble differentiating baekhyun’s and d.o.’s voices then keep this in mind: baekhyun’s have a higher pitch and a more ‘thin’ and clear tone (but when he sings softly you get so weak) whilst d.o.’s is thick and rich and filled with falsettos!

suho, or kim junmyeon, is the leader of exo and has trained for 7 years

now this beautiful snow-white creature with angelic features were forced to perform Girl’s Days ‘Something’ crossdressed - and he were ethereal. now, don’t take his name suho lightly, for he is but a ‘guardian’ to exo. his power is water. his voice is highly underrated and he has a strong mentality, being able to represent the whole group after the major bomb were dropped only hours prior to the event. while his facial expressions are fabulous and his awkwardness is always present, this boy leader is quite academic, having ranked within top 50 on the whole school + his purse is empty but a single black credit card (there’s a reason his named is styled $uho) and will not hesitate to spend his money on his beloved members (he regularly treats them food to keep them at bay). he has a sweet spot for the maknae and got a man crush the moment he saw luhan (he literally confessed twice) and even asked who the ‘girl’ was - but it was luhan with a wig on lmao. just look out for someone who’s brighter and more beautiful than our futures lmao.

park chanyeol aka the giraffe who can control fire is the tallest in EXO (he was second to first in a model competition = SM contract) and has earned the nickname yoda because of his big ears! now this tall and baby faced main rapper can lull you to sleep with his beautiful voice (and surprisingly good like wtf where did his singing talent come from) and make you coo over his musical skills. he’s known for being playful (and get beaten up by satansoo). 

he likes the expression ‘happiness delight’ (even though he spelled it delite to begin with bahaha nice try) and even got fake tattoos with it. this kid can’t sit still and is a part of the beagle line! he’s the second member to go in the direction of acting and has even got his own little show going on, plus he’s one the main characters of EXO’s upcoming series ‘EXO next door’. fans are aware of his little dara from 2NE1 crush but his #1 ship will always be baekyeol.

and now it’s EXO-M’s turn! xiumin (kim minseok, the ice manipulator) is the fake maknae in EXO - don’t be deceived by his young and innocent looks for he is actually the eldest

he loves coffee and is very passionate about it. he’s called baozi because of his bun-like cheeks (although they don’t really exist anymore /wails/) and has for some time been a little insecure about his body, thus has been dieting and making his members a little worried. despite the lack of height he’s fierce and doesn’t give a damn if baekhyun tries to do anything (which is quite often smh). he resembles g-dragon and sohee and knows dongwoo from infinite! his most popular ship is/was xiuhan but his squishiness makes him matchable with a couple of few …. the members are thirsty for xiuabs hehe

zhang yixing / lay is the healing chinese unicorn who is not as innocent as people think he is. he has a habit of kissing the members and his blank JPG face makes him look high on something lmao. he composed promise and his own solo stage song, and whereas kai is more fluid with his movements lay is more to the powerful moves

he likes to do charity and never forgets to bow for every staff he passes.  he has a very sensitive neck and cried at their first win with wolf (their first win ever actually) because he was so overwhelmed and touched. he is called the ‘changsha prince’ and can make the most questionable noises when excited. his way of comforting the members are primarily by whispering soothing words (at least … that’s what i presume it is??) and hugging them. look out for his dimple and stony faces!

chenchenchenchen (lightening dancing machine kim jongdae) is - despite his position as main vocalist in EXO-M - actually korean (but he still got to do a duet with amazing zhang li yin in chinese !!). he’s the last member of the beagle line and shares the same trait as the other beagles that he’s very loud. he also likes to troll but gets very upset if he’s the one getting tricked.  

his voice is very ‘thin’/’light’/FINE (idk how to say it) and can reach notes that sends chills down your spine and back up in heaven. when he doesn’t make dino noises, does … funny things with the members and gets teased for his camel eyes, he’s actually an angel (he gave hot packs to the ghosts in a haunted house). if you want to spot him; look for his high cheekbones/profound facial features and the corners of his mouth!

tao (time manipulator zi tao) asked if he could give jackson his medal at the 2015 idol championships and even took a selca with him with fellow maknae sehun-nie. he also shares the appearance in zhang li yin’s agape with f(x)’s victoria (among other things he has done with her). 

his biggest ships is/was taoris and taohun. kris always took care of tao (who obviously likes to be treated nice things such as expensive accessories and food) and sehun is like his bff. with his narrow slim face and striking features (and height) he attracts attention from especially foreign fans. he’s a big fan of sns and is active on both instagram and weibo. he practices wushu (or has) but gets terrified and shies away from bugs and anything that moves in the dark. he’s the member who gets most often imitated by baekhyun (who mostly teases his pronunciations) but trust me when i tell you that baekhyun cares and has always been playful. he currently is injured and can’t participate in the promotions for call me baby, although he pushed himself on the first comeback stage (which worsened the injury). 

okay so that’s the active members and you don’t have to read the rest if you don’t want to, but personally i’d like to give you the opportunity to get to know the inactive members as well, since you inevitably will stumble upon their videos sooner or later

okay … so let’s start with luhan (lu han). luhan was actually my first bias so i’m probably going to babble a little. because of his name and innocent and pure appearance he got the nickname Xiao Lu ‘little deer’ or Lu-ge. he’s reaaaally shy (but where he lacks in confidence in his speech he projects it trough his dance) and was scolded by SM for never speaking on TV (but his confidence level when speaking in chinese is always raised lvl 800), he’s generally a really precious being who hiccups when he laughs too much, he always looks out for the other members and is afraid of heights. 

he got a guinness world record for the most commented  weibo post with over 13 mio comments!!! he’s kai’s counterpart and they even shared a duet together. as pretty as he looks he’s actually really manly, no kidding. his teaser was the second to be released and his power is telekinesis, as seen in the mama mv. his laughter is quite famous because it alters his whole face and is sooooo contagious! he’s also becoming a well-known actor now, is currently filming a movie with matt damon about the great wall! his most famous ships are hunhan, layhan and xiuhan (OTP FEELINGS HERE). layhan were so adorable together i swear- BUT HUNHANFEELINGS COMING THROUGH srsly watch all these videos okay and tell me aFTER IF YOU DIDNT GET TOUCHED BY THEM. they always whisper to each other way too close and laugh and and and just moves around so they are always attached to the hip ;; ugh /clenches heart/ i will just shamelessly leave a bunch of gifs

okay okay kris (wu yi fan) was the leader of EXO-M and the main rapper. he had the ability of flight and is known for the quote ‘chicken is not my style’ and being a ‘cold city guy’

he actually indecisive and switches between ‘no’ and ‘yes’ so much that his own members were scared of him lol. he’s a really funky and awkward guy who grew up in canada and is fluent in english - but speaks many other languages too! he’s called dduijang for ‘leader’ in chinese and kriscasso because of his drawing skills (or the lack of it) and likes to play basketball. he’s an active actor at this moment. 

and that’s it! i really hope it was worth the wait and that you can use this information! ;; you can test yourself with the picture below, and when you feel ready for it try this one as a challenge! if you have any questions or just want to write/fangirl then please go ahead and stumble/glide/walk into my inbox! ♥♥♥

Eliza didn’t mean to eavesdrop on the conversation.  No, really, she didn’t.  She was content to sip her latte, peruse the latest Buzzfeed articles, and bug Henry with random emojis in an effort to get him to cut short his completely unnecessary meeting with Larry (it really was because nothing short of a miracle can convince the general public that bacon-flavored cough drops was the next big thing)….

It’s Not Your Popularity; it’s Their Entitlement.

My friend messaged me today, upset about “people on the internet”. More specifically, recent backlash to Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Blast Ball. This goes beyond just backlash though; apparently, there’s petitions to shut down the game as well as some other things. He said it pissed him off. He said at least the developers are experimenting and trying out things, and that a lot of hard work might have went into development of that game. I pointed out how it just didn’t look good. It might not look good at all, but hard work must have gone into it, and there was no right for people to be making petitions as well as issuing casual death threats.  

“My dad is watching a documentary interview about The Hollies,” I typed back, after saying I’d tell him a story. “They’re a British band who were famous around the time of The Beatles; recorded in the same studio, wrote a lot of songs that got famous, they were big. ‘Bubblegum pop’ stuff way back in the day. There was a point where the lead singer and writer, Graham Nash, wanted to write more artistic stuff, more stuff that was deep. He wrote King Midas in Reverse and he loved it, it was his pride and joy, he held it in such high regard. They put a lot of work and orchestration into it. It was critically acclaimed but only charted in the Top 30, ultimately a flop.

“Nash and the band had to sit down and think, because they realized then that the band was not on the same page, and they realized they had to do something. The lead wanted to deviate away from their bubblegum pop sound that they used to do, that they were known for. But it seemed like they couldn’t risk it. As much as the lead wanted to break that old thing, and not be defined by what people thought, he couldn’t do it. 

Now their wives or girlfriends, I don’t know who, I forgot - they suggested a silly thing, so they wrote a song called Jennifer Eccles. It has a catchy whistle to it and everything, I actually like that song, so does my dad. The band for the most part despised it. The whistle that everybody knew became the bane of their existence. It sounded like their old shit, very simple and sweet and silly.” I could actually feel my teeth clench as I finished typing. “Top 2 on the charts. It saved the band until Nash left.”

My friend understood, and bless him, he knows his shit. I told him I was glad he understood how much work and effort goes into content creation; I also reminded him sometimes it doesn’t work out for the best, as was demonstrated countless times by many people other than some British boy band. He quickly pointed out that he was into the K-Pop scene, known for some of the most rabid fans out there. I chuckled and said “yeah, tl;dr entitlement”. He said he hated the word. I said I hated when people resonated of it. 

Sometimes, we tell people all the time that they should do what makes them happy. Sometimes, we tell people the moment they try something they like, that it’s utter crap and to go back to the other stuff because they’re not good at it, or we don’t like it. By the rule of “you can’t please everyone” and “everyone likes different things” this is a fascinating conundrum, and it’s expected. It’s human, it’s understandable and it’s okay.

I myself am not looking forward to the new Metroid games at all. I feel like it’s a waste of resources, time, and effort that could be going into a better attempt at a Metroid game. As a content creator, I understand how taxing that must be when you work on something and just cross your fingers, shoving the negativity in the back of your mind that says “people are not going to like this” when it’s more than just the anxiousness but instinct and statistics telling you this.

Being a fandom content creator teaches you that very quickly. Once you want to break away from it, or if you even take a break to make something different - not many people care as much since the type of people you want looking at it aren’t around, or maybe they don’t like it. Doesn’t matter how many man-hours you put into it or if you tried something new. Doesn’t matter if you like it compared to that stupid little sketch or thing you made that’s still getting notes. Doesn’t matter. A lot of the times, so many people (who have built up recognition but want to try something new) give up on original content or doing something different because they feel like what they think doesn’t matter. It only matters when it caters to the people who recognize their other stuff, even after they’ve expressed they don’t want to do it as much or they want to stop.

Is that our own faults as fan-artists? Maybe, probably. So we try to appeal to the popular demographic again, knowing that there’s some people we just cannot please. Knowing that it’s easier that way, but it may or may not help us in the end. Some of us have found bigger success than others with their original content or deviating away from our old fandom popularity. Some of us are still getting messages about “why aren’t you doing [x] stuff anymore? :(”. 

I’ve been in the TF2 fandom for a while; I’m going to be in this fandom for a while. But I’ve seen an artist or four who have quit doing TF2 fanart; one reason because they actually thought they were getting worse, another one stating it was their crutch and part of a bad time in their life. I’ve heard several video creators who have said they’d rather not burn out playing TF2 and the videos they’re so proud of have little to no views compared to the ones they shat out in instances. I’ve witnessed animators who want to make other things other than TF2 machinima in SFM, only for the comments to be flooded with people telling them they’re worthless if it’s not TF2 or if it’s not something they’re known for. I no longer want to tell the person who inspired me to dedicate production to the competitive scene that he inspired me because he no longer wants to be associated with that side of him. 

Sometimes, we tell people to do what they want to do, what makes them happy, even if it’s different. Sometimes, we tell people we don’t like it when they do something different. It’s human, it’s understandable and it’s okay. But sometimes, it fucks me up because it’s funny how that works

Heechul's Interview with Women's Central - PART 2
  • I have been curious from just now, how do the members get along?
  • Heechul: The bands in the past are formed by people who have the same interest but idol groups are kids who don't know each other being put together. It doesn't matter if we have the same interest, there will definitely be conflicts within the group. The question is how to resolve the conflicts. We must have some conflicts first before we can develop a relationship. SJ has more members so even if there are quarrels, at most they will fight to solve the problem. If 2 members of a 5-6 members group fight, the other kids will not know what to do. But if 2 members of our group fight, the rest, 9-10 of us, will continue to play. Though it might be awkward at first, they will make up as we play.
  • What kind of fights?
  • Heechul: I heard that there isn't a a group that fights like us. We said in broadcasts too that there were direct quarrels.. we talked about slapping each other too. Doing so (fighting) reduces misunderstandings. After our relationship gets deeper, quarrel will lessen.
  • Never fought over money before?
  • Heechul: The amount of money we get for each member is the same so we never fight over money. We just take our own portion. But like I did War of Words alone, the pay from that will go to me. The pay from concerts is unconditionally 1/n (divided equally).
  • When was SJ the most popular?
  • Heechul: 2009 during Sorry Sorry. At that time we consecutively got number 1 on the charts in Taiwan. After that for the next 3 years, our albums got number 1 in Taiwan too.
  • You must have made a lot of money.
  • Heechul: I spent a lot of it away. Because I bought a weird piece of land and got cheated.
  • So your asset is 50million? 100million?
  • Heechul: Aye~! Let's skip this question. If you keep doing this I will go to a rival company and tell them everything that I didn't say here. And I will tell them everything I said in Women's Central is not true! I am done for if I reveal that here or talk about money.
  • Hahaha, ok I know.. But the money you make also have ups and downs?
  • Heechul: Of course, I make more when we release albums or have concerts but I don't get anything during enlistment. Actually SJ was at its peak when I was doing military service.
  • Why did you got to the army at the best moment to make money?
  • Heechul: Because I was impatient. People around me advised me to go later but I still went in like that. I hated it that I had to go to the Army office every time I go for overseas shows, so I thought I might as well enlist. Even the company can't stop me. I went into public service because of my injury from an accident. I went in quietly and came out quietly.
  • How is the life of public service?
  • Heechul: Others might read/study a lot in these 2 years and received certifications, but for me, I only think about not being in other people's sight and to not create troubles. Because I don't want to attract attention, I wore simple clothes and took the subway to and from work.
  • Even so, I think many people found out?
  • Heechul: Even those elders who don't know that I am a SJ member will look at me. Because I am handsome. (laughs) The funny thing is, those people who saw me when I am working were quiet. "Omo, Heechul ssi, hi," just like that, ended. But when it is time to knock off, if 2 or 3 people recognize me, they will go like "Oh Kim Heechul! Kim Heechul!" Those people whom I bumped into when I am going to work are sometimes the same as those peopl I bumped into when I knock off. But they are quiet when they are going to work and they will ask to take photos together when they knock off, it was a total change. Those who go to restaurants or pubs alone will not be involved with scandals. Those who hangout with women will create scandals.
  • Looks like many fan went to look for you at Sungdong Office.
  • Heechul: It was like this at first. But my thinking was 'I am a public soldier now, I am not a celebrity during enlistment' so I told those fans who came "It cause inconvenience for me if you come like this. Don't come anymore" And they really stopped coming. My fans are obedient and look after me well.
  • I heard that fans are obedient because you are scary.
  • Heechul: Because they know my temper (laughs). But that was all in the past, I have changed a lot.
  • Looks like you felt a lot of emotions during public service.
  • Heechul: Loving my job, thankful for the present, thoughts like this. In the past, I will have bad mood if someone asked me for my autograph in a restaurant, I will not eat and just leave while nagging. Nobody likes to be interrupted during meals. No manners (laughs). But while working in the district, many people asked for photos and autographs and I gave them. My way of thinking has changed a lot. To me it isn't something that is tiring, but to others, it is something that will become a precious memory. I reflected a lot on my past.
  • Men becomes more matured when they come back from the army.
  • Heechul: Aiya~ but it will be uninteresting if a celebrity becomes matured. I want to be immature in an appropriate way. I can't get into trouble. I want to live as happily as I can within the laws of Korea.
  • I mean something like this.
  • Even the way one looks at women changes after the army.
  • Heechul: The way I look at women is the same from before to now. I like those who are elegant and pretty. Because my character is like a blade so it is best if I find a woman who is like a sheath. She can slowly guide me, age doesn't matter.
  • Looks doesn't matter?
  • Heechul: I don't look at face and height. But I look at the figure, I like girls with nice legs.
  • Looks like you have met a lot of women.
  • Heechul: Not a lot, but just right. I don't always have a girlfriend. My longest relationship was 5 months. Actually I am the kind who doesn't like to meet women. Up to middle school, I only played computer games. I only know about the female characters in games. I have no feelings for real-life women. To be honest, the female characters in games are prettier. But I have a little more feeling of wanting to get in a relationship after 30 years old. If I were to get into a relationship, I want to date with a normal girl. Holding hands on the street, doing things like how normal couples do.
  • But then everyone can still recognize you.
  • Heechul: Of course there will be some sacrifice. Even so, compared to both being celebrities, the attention from the media will still be smaller if she is a normal person. Recently my fans have been telling me to stop playing games and get married. Told me not to slip into the game characters and prefers me to meet a real girl instead. I am thankful to my fans, I have brought a lot of troublesome matters to them. When I took photos with women, or when I talk about women in broadcasts, no matter how cool my fans are, there are still possibilities that they dislike it. However they have been very understanding, I am really thankful.
  • Didn't you have any special impressions of any fans?
  • Heechul: Hahahaha... but those fans that I remember have already gotten married. I even sent them flowers. The relationship with my fans is even higher than of working colleagues and family. No matter what happens, we will still move forward hand in hand. Actually I can't talk well and I have a short temper too but fans have been taking care of this immature oppa, I am really thankful.
  • You like kids a lot? Recently in Superman Returns, you took good care of the kids.
  • Heechul: In the past I used formal language with the kids, I didn't know what to do. But those kids who were born recently are really cute. I am also very curious how pretty a kid who looks like me will be. So I told my mum I want to quickly have a child but I don't want to get married. Mum said I am crazy. Marriage is really a very far away topic. I am not familiar with dating, how can I be responsible to a woman? I am not confident yet. I would rather co-habitat first and if both of us get along then we get married, it doesn't sound too bad like this.
  • You are very honest, but no matter what, you do have thoughts to get married.
  • Heechul: Because I am immature, I can't date a girl for a long time. I didn't do well too but I want to get married. After dating, it there are thoughts of getting married, we will get married naturally.
  • How will you treat a woman?
  • Heechul: I will just do whatever I want, that's why I didn't have a relationship for a long time. I never lie or say empty words. On my girlfriend's birthday I even told her 'We are not married, why do I need to give a gift?' Just like this, I hurt the girl's feelings. I won't get married instantly, we must date and then get married naturally. But I seem to spoil it too early. I think maybe expressions are important. When the girl makes me a lunchbox, even if it's tasteless, maybe I have to tell a white lie ans say it's delicious.
  • You are the kind that can express love.
  • Heechul: I am the kind that can look after someone from the back. There was once when I fell sick, my girlfriend brought me a lunchbox. While eating I was thinking 'my girlfriend traveled so far for me, this isn't good'. So from then on I never tell her when I was sick. I don't want her to be worried for me. When my girlfriend is sick, I will let her rest, I will leave the medicines at her doorstep and leave. I was afraid that if I asked her to come out to get the medicine, she will feel burdened. I hate the idea of male chauvinist.
  • That is quite manly. Then how would you like girls to express themselves?
  • Heechul: In the past, I hate it when others try to restrict me. I don't like it when company or parents try to restrict me but it's different with a girlfriend. Calling each other in the morning to chat, calling each other when going out, it's really interesting. I felt restricted when I first did that, isn't there a song 'Sweet Restrictions', I like that kind...
  • Have you prepared surprises for girls before?
  • Heechul: On the 100th day anniversary with my girlfriend, I booked a restaurant, put up some balloons and smoke, play some music in the background, a surprise like this. I had a bad fight with her the day before, so I rented the restaurant in the last minute. I was quite lost and didn't know what to do so I just curled up and didn't dare to look at my girlfriend's eyes. It was my first time doing such a thing since I was born. I want to tell my guy friends, the effect of a project like this can only last for a week. In the end it's still better to treat her well consistently.
  • Even if it was rented in the last minute, a surprise like this is not bad.
  • Heechul: Hong Seok-cheon hyung was the one who came up with this idea. And that was his shop. If I am dating, it will be good to date a normal girl. Walking on the streets, hand in hand, I want to do stuff like what other normal dating couples do.
  • When did you first start dating a girl?
  • Heechul: When I was 22 and was still a trainee. She was older than me. We broke up after seeing each other for 2 weeks. We went to DVD room to watch Lion King. When I am reading manga or playing games, I really hate to have people walking around me or touching me. There was a sad scene and I was going to cry but my girlfriend kept caressing me, so I turned my face away, after that we broke up.
  • It's a little unbelievable, sounds like an idol's answer.
  • Heechul: It's true! Hyung, I was too childish at that time.
  • You prefer games and movies to girlfriends?
  • Heechul: There was once I broke up with a celebrity girlfriend over computer games. "Oppa, do you like games or do you like me?" I replied "I like both." "What? Oppa, how can you say this?", "It doesn't mean you like me" and then she got angry and wanted a break up so we broke up.
  • Are you still playing games?
  • Heechul: Of course, recently I am playing LOL with Lee Minho of The Heirs. We can't meet up so we just went back to our respective homes. After schedules, I connect my computer, Minho is often there. We will open the chatroom and chat there while playing.
  • You have said before that it's better to invest in game characters because they won't leave you unless you delete the game.
  • Heechul: I said this in a broadcast before. Although i got 'bashed' by many females, I have also given hope to many people who likes to stay in. When I was doing the radio broadcast, my female fans decreased and male fans increased. There was once when Girl's Days came over as guests for Valentine's Day special and they said that they will make chocolates in the past for their boyfriends and the boyfriends loved it. So I told them "They are all lying. I told them boys prefer gas vouchers or gift vouchers over chocolates. I really got scolded by many female listeners but the male listeners cheer for me.
  • You will go to any game broadcasts?
  • Heechul: I have been to Gamenet League of Legend broadcast, I am Carry, before. I did some commentation and also played the game. Although I did the commenting for 4 hours, it was really fun. I was afraid that the TV station might be worried of my fees so I didn't go get the money. During meal gathering, I also paid for the bill. Actually I really want to be On Gamenet MC. But there are many circumstances which I can't anticipate so I didn't do it. Next time if there is a chance, I must try it.
  • The company doesn't object this? Super Junior's Kim Heechul hosting a game show.
  • Heechul: The words I hate most is 'Why did you appear in such a show?' or 'Why did you meet such a low class person?' We work together so where does all this grading come from? In this world I hate talks about 'classes' the most. 'You have lowered your class,' then I will say 'So what? no matter where I am, who I am with, I am still Kim Heechul.' If I can, I really want to do everything that I want to do.
  • How do you manage your human network?
  • Heechul: I don't manage it. I just hangout with people who gets along with me. A lot of celebrities hide things from each other and cares about 'classes' so it's hard to get close, but I am not like this. I am honest and I don't like to lie. Those close to me includes Ma Dongsuk, Cho SeHo, Son Dambi, Taeyeon, Park shinhye etc. Regardless of gender, we are drinking buddies. I will meet with good actors, good singers and good comedians, none of those around me cares about 'classes'.
  • Looks like everything you do is 4 dimensional and you have your own way of thinking.
  • Heechul: One of the reason why I live in the dorm is because I love to play. When I drink too much in a banquet or gathering... in occasions like these, there will definitely be women. When I drank too much, women will come over and do aegyo and say 'Can't we drink more in Oppa's house?' If I am living alone, there might be more cases like this, so living in a dorm really suits me.
  • Are you telling me that there are women who will tell men that they want to drink in their homes?
  • Heechul: There are really a lot, hyung you have never encounter this?
  • This is the difference between an idol and a middle age man. In my life, when I was young and still single, I have never heard of 'let's go drink more in your home' before.
  • For Kim Heechul, phrases like 'the world of 4 dimensions' and 'full of confidence' have been following you.
  • Heechul: Because it is the truth. To be honest, during my debut period, anyone around me will feel annoyed and burdened by me. But being a DJ, meeting many people, it has taught me how to judge situations. My bipolar may have impacted negatively on some broadcasts. After knowing this, I will work harder towards a more positive direction, seems like my personality has changed too. I also have more feelings after finishing my military service and coming back
  • What do you think your charm is?
  • Heechul: The sense of surprise. To be able to see something unexpected, isn't that interesting? When I just debuted, some say I look like Japanese. But then they found out that I grew up in Gangwon-do, a man who looks like a girl but has a frank character and can drink well, many people like the sense of surprise like this.
  • Which one do you like best between singing, variety, acting, DJ and MC?
  • Heechul: I feel happiest to be a singer. Especially when I hear the explosive screams from the fans during concerts. This sense of excitement can only be felt on stage together with fans. So no matter where I go, I will say that I am a Super Junior and a singer.
  • When will Super Junior comeback?
  • Heechul: This year we will have a new album as well as a world tour. And it is Super Junior's 10th anniversary. We are often energetic, this time we will be able to do very well too. I wish that Super Junior will always be happy. This is a battle concerning how far we can move forward. When I was little, I thought that it is most important to be handsome and charming but from some point onwards, I felt that this is all useless.
  • To Kim Heechul, Super Junior is...
  • Heechul: In the beginning when there were 13 members in the group, people asked what do we have left after dividing it (profits) between 13 people. A lot of talks like this. But the truth is, our existence cannot be bought with money. When we go to TV stations, or anywhere else, we will be proud. Super Junior is not a job for me, it is a harbour where I can rest. Other than the members, who can accept me when I throw a tantrum when I am in a bad mood? Anyone can accept me when I make noises in a good mood. I become more careful when I get more popular but I don't have to be like this with the members. Sometimes I go naked and I don't close the door when I shower, just open the door and go in. I think it's good to have a relationship like this. The members' existence is now something I cannot be without in my life.
  • Lastly tell us your plans.
  • Heechul: I am thankful to be able to get into the company despite always creating troubles in school. My parents are also happy with my current success. I feel proud when my parents are happy to see me on variety shows. When I am tired, I often think about what I will be if I am not a celebrity. I am not someone will plan far into the future. I am someone who plans for the future like what I am planning now for tomorrow to do my best.

Imagine getting hurt during Civil War

Request Prompt: Maybe a Steve Rogers request where you both fell in love but then during a fight at civil war you get hurt badly. Steve rushes over to you and cradles you in his arms, trying to Keep you awake. As soon as the other Avengers see the scene, they stop fighting and run over to you two. They all help you then back on the Jet and fly home. At the Hospital you’re in a coma for a while but Steve is with you all the time, begging you to come back so he can tell you he loves you ? (with a happy end please hihi)

Author’s Note: This is my very first request. Thank you so much! I hope it is what you wanted and I hope it was worth the wait!! <3 

Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader

Warnings: injury, head trauma

You sat in a SHIELD jet and looked at your team around you; Wanda, Clint, Scott (still in wonder from everything), Bucky, and then there was Steve. He stood in the middle of the jet, doing what he did best, giving commands. He led his team with such natural ability. (Oh God how you loved it when he gave commands and took charge like that. You could just imagine him-)

“Y/N, heyy…. Earth to Y/N.” You were interrupted by Clint. You looked over at him. “We are getting ready to land. Are you ready?” He asked from the cockpit. You blinked and then quickly nodded. Clint looked at you skeptically, but replied with an okay. 

Even though you were not physically related to anyone on the team, Clint was like an uncle to you. The crazy uncle that everyone liked and the one who was always looking out for the team. Seeing only the back of his head, you knew he was smiling and he shook his head, like he knew exactly what you were thinking. And you didn’t doubt that he did. Everyone knew that you had a huge crush on Cap. Apparently it was quite obvious. You loved him and you knew he loved you too.  The team would always tease the two of you. Steve would never deny it, but he would never admit to it either. Of course. As skilled as he was in defending what he cared about, he lacked in the ability to express his feelings towards you. You sighed.

Captain America always found a way to your heart though. He would catch your eye at the most mundane moments and you couldn’t help but stare at him, whatever he was doing, and just soak in his beauty. This particular time, you were carefully watching him during a fight. He moved with such confidence and poise. He stood there with those deadly jaws of defiance. His eyes carried his passion as he looked at his target. He had such swift, effortless strength with that shield.

You were fighting beside him during this particular fight of Civil War. You were not enhanced in any way, unlike some of the other Avengers. You weren’t a Super Solider, in fact you were quite human. You were a SHIELD agent and you were trained purely for defensive purposes. You knew how to handle a gun well and you could certainly defend yourself. Sometimes though it was annoying not having cool powers, but often times you were the only practical, authentic person in the group.

As hard as it was to fight against those who you once called your friends and for as long as the fight was up to this point, you were doing pretty good. Until you were faced with your best friend, Natasha Romanoff. You naturally hesitated before proceeding. Though of course because you hesitated, Natasha took the punch. It didn’t take you by surprise that she punched you, but it was the force that she punched you with that surprised you. You stood there hunched over with your arm across your stomach. You started to throw a punch back. 

Just then something grabbed your fist that you were punching with. It was sticky white goo. Gross. You looked over to where it came from. It was Spiderman. You gasped. “Hey there, watch out!” He said down to you as he swung by. 

All of a sudden, you saw a flash of bright red, white and blue that resulted in the tension of the web being released. You breathed out a deep breath that you didn’t realize you were holding in. My Steve to the rescue.

And then Natasha kicked you. She literally took your breath away, as you stood there trying to get your bearings back. Unbeknownst to you, she did this so she could throw one of her glowing batons at Steve. Naturally Steve reacted by putting up his shield, which, in turn, made the baton bounce back. Ultimately bounce back at you. It hit you hard right on the side of your head. You felt yourself slowly moving back. You briefly saw Steve’s face looking at you in horrid shock. You then felt a swift, strong pair of arms pick you up. You heard your name, but didn’t recognize it. You tried to look over to where the source was. All you saw in front of you was Steve’s face looking down at you. The scenery was changing around you until you realized you were back in the Jet. You saw all the Avengers huddled around you. You were comforted by their faces. All you could focus on though was Steve’s face. His precious face. You noticed tears running down his cheeks. Then everything went black.

Steve’s POV: Steve paced back and forth in the small hospital room. He ran his hands through his hair multiple times and sighed deeply. The love of his life was lying unconscious on a hospital bed. He didn’t know what to do with himself. He was filled with so much regret because he never proclaimed his love to her. He was a distraught mess. For the man being out of time, of course, it was him who waited until it was too late to realize that this woman was the one he loved. Steve stopped pacing and looked over at her. He realized he just couldn’t live without her. This was too much for him. He knelt down by the side of her bed, grabbed her hand and started sobbing deeply into it. He continued for a while. 

After he gained some thought, he looked at her face. “Y\N… I just… cannot live without you… please wake up.” Tears streaming down his face. He used both of his hands to hold her one hand. “Please,” he moved his hands in emphasis as he spoke with each word. “Please wake up.” He paused. He reached up and kissed her on the forehead. He looked her in the eyes, even though they were closed, and said “Y/N I love you.” He set her hand down, got up, sat down in a chair next to the bedside and then fell asleep.

Your POV: Unbeknownst to Steve, you heard every word of his plea for you to wake up. You did not comprehend much of it until you woke up though.

“I didn’t even…. I never told her… I loved her…” You heard a familiar voice say between sobs. “Clint, I –.” More sobs. 

You heard the other person in the room reply. These voices seemed so familiar to you, but you didn’t have the strength to identify the people the voices belonged to nor try to understand what they were talking about. You heard the reply but the words just drifted in and out through your brain. They were so soothing to you. You just focused on the tone and depth of the voice and let the words move through you, until you fell back into an unconsciousness.

You heard some conversation going on. At first you couldn’t quite comprehend it, but you slowly were able to focus. You opened your eyes to see Uncle Clint sitting in the corner of the room, with a whole box of pizza on his lap and a slice in his hand. He was talking between bites, which made you smile. You were afraid to move at all, so you just moved your eyes over to see that Steve was sitting in a chair right next to your bed. Of all the things that you overheard and all the questions going through your mind, the only thing that you could focus on saying was:

“On your left.”

Steve just about fell out of his chair from an excited shock. He bounced out of his chair and was kneeling by your bedside in a flash.

“Y/N!!” He grabbed your hand. You could hear the pizza box falling on the floor and Uncle Clint walking towards you. But before he made it to your bedside, Steve, without the words to say what he was feeling, swiftly brought his lips onto yours in a passionate kiss. 

Clint paused. “Finally!” He proclaimed. 

Steve slowly drew out. You looked up at him and smiled. He smiled right back you. He brought his hand up to your cheek, put some hair behind your ear and then proceeded to run his hand through your hair. You sighed. It felt so nice. With his other hand, he grabbed your nearest hand. He moved his other hand to the back of your head and then pulled in for another kiss. You kissed back. Oh how you craved this so much. He looked at you deep in the eyes. “I love you Y/N, so much!” He said and you knew it was from his heart.

You opened up your mouth to reply but realized you had an extremely difficult time trying to figure out what words you were going to say. It shouldn’t be this hard to reply, should it? 

Uncle Clint interrupted the silence and said “hey lovebird, you may be love struck now, but the doc did say you might have trouble finding words to say at first from your head trauma… He also said you will more than likely have a difficult time focusing and will be wanting more sleep.” …Well that explains it.

“H.. How long.. was..?” You started.

“Four days.” Uncle Clint replied.

Damn. Four days. It felt like you were just in that jet. Then it all came back to you. You looked around you and then looked back at Steve.

“I, I love you.” You said in reply to what Steve had said.

He just stared at you, gleaming like a proud puppy. He held your hand tighter.

“This sucker was here right beside you the entire time.” Clint motioned towards Steve. 

You looked at him in awe. “I can’t leave my best girl.” Steve said smiling. 

anonymous asked:

oh c'mon, you can't ship everyone with everyone. stallison? really? they didn't even have more than 5 scenes (maximum) together, please stop it. oh i know, let's ship isaac with scott's mom. what? he was in her house lots of times. who know what they've been doing? see? it is ridiculous

So, I didn’t really want to answer this, because I try to be 100% wank free, but I feel like I have to because ship shaming is my least favorite thing. 

First, in defense of Stallison, in canon the two are shown to be best friends, not like Allison and Lydia or Scott and Stiles, but still best friends and a strong team. For starters: 

  • In season one, Allison makes sure to invite Stiles to come to parties.
  • He makes sure that she gets a ride home before helping Scott in the pilot. 
  • He checkes on her whenever she could be in danger.
  • Scott, Lydia, Jackson and Stiles are the first and primary friends she makes in Beacon Hills.
  • Her friendship with Stiles is independent of her relationship with Scott.
  •  When Scott and Allison are fighting, she is still talks to Stiles. In fact, he basically smoothes over their relationship multiple times. They talk pretty frequently canonically. 
  • ALLISON SETS STILES UP ON A DATE WITH LYDIA. I’M SORRY BUT THIS KIND OF JUST PROVES TO ME THAT THEY DEFINITELY HAVE A FRIENDSHIP THAT IS SOLID. ALLISON KNOWS ALL ABOUT STILES, AND STILES, IN TURN, KNOW A LOT ABOUT ALLISON. 
  • Literally of the Argents, were easily able to identify Stiles.
  • Kate recognized him easily and knew that he and Allison were close friends. 
  • No seriously, all the Argents seem to know Stiles well. 
  • Stiles and Allison are Team Human. They’ve saved everybody’s asses together. Multiple times. 
  • They plot together. 
  • They banter and it is adorable. 
  • Also, 2x05. Enough Said. They really trust each other. 
  • Allison and Stiles have a really trusting relationship. She trusts him to tell her everything, and he trusts her to tell him everything, especially when they had to be quiet about things in Season 2. 
  • They protect each other constantly. 
  • I’m bringing this up again because I think it is important: They talk quite frequently in canon. (Though, her parents do see a spike once she is involved with the supernatural.) In Season 2 and Season 3, after Scott and Allison break up, Stiles and Allison still appear to be close and communicating. 
  • The sacrifice scene when they all look to each other for comfort. 
  • Allison organizes a fucking heist to save his ass. THE GIRLS ORGANIZE THE HEIST NOT SCOTT AND ISAAC. ALLISON AND LYDIA ARE LIKE SAVE STILES AND TAKE HIS NOGITSUNE DOWN
  • Stiles literally says, ”I guess the only good thing is it looks like I’m dying, too”
  • [EDIT FROM THE LOVELY stallissons]: “LET’S NOT FORGET ALLISON TAKING THE FIRING PIN OUT OF ARGENT’S GUN SO THAT HE WOULDN’T SHOOT STILES”

And i think that last quote is what really sums it up, okay? Teen Wolf is terrible at showing friendships, it mostly just tells us that they exist, and Stallison is one of the many victims of this sloppy bit of writing. But Stiles and Allison were close, and after Allison dies, Stiles says the only good thing is that maybe he will die too. They are close friends canonically that love each other in a friend way. And that’s great, their friendship was amazing and underrated, but really important to both of them. As the only humans in the group, the two constantly worked together and were kind of each other’s human anchors. AND THAT IS ALL CANON. 

I, personally, think that this canonical chemistry, works as both a friendship and a potential romance. (Their banter is fab) I like them as both and celebrate their great friendship. And just because we don’t see every moment of their friendship doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It clearly does. 

And to go back to your arguments that they onle have five scenes together, that invalidates a good amount of Teen Wolf ships: Derica, Dennifer, Sterica, Scisaac, Stisaac, Allica, and STEREK.

I guess that I’m saying is that Teen Wolf doesn’t really like to develop nonromantic relationships, which means that we, as a fandom, tend to forget that these KIDS are best friends who would die for each other. Stiles and Allison did love each other, as friends, and that is enough for me.
