i don't even know this was a lot of fun to make though lol

a DAMN GOOD IGNIS MOMENT.



But really, the more I watch it the more I realise it’s not only a fantastic Ignis moment, it’s a fantastic Chocobros moment in general? REALLY LONG POST AHEAD + UNFINISHED GAMEPLAY WRITING BUT THIS SCENE

Lemme start with Ignis because duh (if you’ve seen anything out of me the past two weeks, it’s probably been Ignis related). He’s been pretty passive about losing his eyesight up until this point. He calls it a minor sacrifice in the grand scheme of things. When Noctis and Gladio fight on the train, Ignis says nothing, even though part of the argument is his own injury. He only tries to stop Gladio by saying his name; Prompto is the one who tries to break it up (more in a moment. anyway not that Ignis really could break it up rn but you know) He’s been optimistic enough about it, though. “I’ll manage somehow” when you invite him into the mines. “This is considerably harder than I expected” he says about fighting. But sometimes you hear the boys say something and Iggy just sort of sighs. They’re dancing around him, and his injury, and the argument, and this scene is where it culminates.

The first time he actually says that it isn’t okay is because of their friendship hitting a low point, rather than his actual injury. But he is so, so aware of that injury and how it has the potential to drag them down. He still says “I would remain with you all. Til the very end” because these are his brothers and he damn well plans to, but that said.

This is the first time we hear Ignis raise his voice, I think. Not including battle cries and the like. Which is saying a lot because this boy is very, very calculated on his emotions. (ie later on when Prompto falls off the train, you hear the very audible difference in Noctis’s voice vs Iggy’s) He’s Crownsguard, Noctis is his king, he will do anything for him, and believes he has no reason to complain even if he has gone blind. But that’s a Big Thing. His yelling in this scene exactly “I know full well!” is finally, finally his frustration coming out and it’s triggered because of their bickering (or anti-bickering, since they aren’t really… speaking much).

He says he is willing to bow out if he starts to slow them down, which imo is like asking him to suffer a physical injury all over again (he is Crownsguard, Noctis is his king, he will do anything for him) but he still will DO IT because he won’t be a burden.

He goes on to give Noctis what, I think, is a much needed confidence boost. “A king pushes onward always, accepting the consequences and never looking back” and in the opening sentences for the next chapter, it literally uses those same words to describe Noct’s reaction to Ardyn’s trick: never looking back. (Also never looking back is exactly what Ignis is doing right now, which is why the choice to focus the camera so much on his scars in that moment is AMAZING.)

He continues with that to tell Gladio that Noct will be king and he will rule, but “only once he’s ready”. And this is SO important. Gladio’s interaction with Noct is painful at least and rage inducing at worst (more below) but not only does Noct need to hear this, Gladio does, too. They can push Noctis into that throne but he will never be able to lead until he is ready, and that involves coming to terms with some very, very heavy stuff that’s been happening. Everybody doesn’t handle grief the same way and they’re all having a hard go at it in very different ways thanks to the events of late.

So all of this makes this the DAMN GOOD IGNIS MOMENT. But it’s also really good for the rest of them, both in mentioned ways and others, but since I’m apparently waxing poetic

RFA Members Korean Name Meanings (will edit in the future)

Hi nonny♡

Once again, I looked through my requests to find the fastest one I can get done. This one seemed the fastest for now so I am answering this question first ^^;;;; I should stop saying I will answer these questions the order they come in.

But in all honesty, I’m really sorry for the hold up in the requests, especially to those that sent them in a long time ago but I haven’t gotten back to. A lot of them takes so much time and I currently don’t have the time to actually get them done.

But this one seems really fun. I can finally put the 한자 (Chinese Characters) I learned from like preschool to high school to use ^^

You are definitely right when you say that names do have meanings. They all derive from the 한자 that I mentioned above! Depending on the character, the meaning to one’s name could be completely different! Currently, the only precise 한자 name I know from MysMess is Jumin’s because his was on his business card. I can guess what Yoosung and V’s are, but for now I’ll tell you guys what I think.

So, let’s start with mine since anon would like to know~


Seol Ryu (류설)

My name is very unique in the sense that my name itself is only one character long (외자). Most people in Korea tend to have two characters in their name.

I was wondering if I should reveal which Ryu I am, but I decided not to because it doesn’t really have a meaning? It is just a family name so I will just go on to explain my first name.

偰 맑을

My name means pure, clean, clear, things like that! I…seriously don’t live up to that LOL. Sometimes I wonder what my parents were thinking when they named me ^^;;; I still think about this. My brother always says that my name is so misleading.

Well, so is his. Jk I love you.

I’ll explain because while I also thought about this for a while. I wanted to share this fun fact a long time ago, but I decided not to. Now, I have a reason to lol and that is, my brother actually dead ass has the same name as Zen.

Yep, my little bro is also Hyun Ryu. Except he’s 20, two centimeters taller than Zen, and a medical major not a musical actor =w=


ZEN/Hyun Ryu (류현)

Well, I don’t exactly know what his 한자 name is. But I can definitely share my brother’s. I’m not sure if it would be the same but let’s see lol.

炫 밝을

My brother’s name means, bright. If Zen also shares the same 한자 character then hey, that’s what his name would mean! I’m not sure which “Ryu” Zen is, but I think in my imagination all the time that we have the same character =w=

Sorry, Hyunnie. I didn’t mean to expose you but lol, too bad. He doesn’t even have a tumblr, what am I sorry about lols. Noona still loves you♡


Jumin Han (한주민)

So, Jumin has his name in 한자 if you see his business card in either the calling menu or the VIP package~

韓 한국 , 나라 (우리 나라의 성의 하나)

主 임금 , 주인

旻 하늘

Let’s start with Han! If I remember correctly there is only one Han for family name. Which is the same character for 대민국 (South Korea). Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m an uneducated little walnut.

Next is his name, Ju Min.

임금 means wage (Ju) or 주인 means owner

하늘 means sky (Min)

I will be honest, I knew what the characters meant separately but lol, I don’t know what they are supposed to mean together. Am I just stupid? I think I have issues. Maybe it is related to how he is the company director of C&R. I don’t know. I’m pretty sure it means something like that ^3^


Yoosung Kim (김유성)

Same with the family name, I do not know which Kim he is, but I can definitely predict which Yoosung he is, and he gives it away when he refers to himself as a shooting star ^^

流 흐를

星 별

Exactly as it is written, 흐를 means, falling and 별 means star. His name is so pretty ;3; I remember this name a lot because my first crush’s name was 유성 with this exact 한자 don’t tell Hyun.


Jaehee Kang (강제희)

I wish Jaehee’s business card had her 한자 characters on it. I am curious to know because a friend of mine has the same name and I will just assume that she might have the same meaning? Who knows =w=

帝 임금

喜 기쁠

We see 임금 again for the “Jae” part of her name! (The same meaning in Jumin’s name meaning wages).The “hee” part of her name is 기쁠 which means happiness.

I feel like this would make sense since she works for C&R in the game.


V/Jihyun Kim (김지현)

This one I made a guess judging by V’s personality lolol.

至 이를

賢 어질

His name (that I just made up just from his personality in the game) virtually means 매우 어질고 착함. 더할 수 없이 어질고 슬기로움.

Orrr, in English, very gentle benevolent, wise.

As you can see, even though both Zen (and my bro lol) and V have the “hyun” character, they could have different meanings.

Lol, I had to bring my 한자 book from my shelf to try and make this and I think it worked out well. I really hope that this is the 한자 for his name because it fits him so well.


Okay, for 707 and Saeran….I am actually on a blank T3T I’m not sure how to go about their names. I’m sure if I look around enough I can make a name but it is a lot harder than I thought. I wish everyone was given their names just like Jumin =w= if I have enough time maaaaybe I will go through my 한자 textbook and try to assemble a name that I can base from their personality, but I tried thinking for now and nothing is coming…

Saeyoung and Saeran fans, Seol is sorry ㅠㅠ

I will come back in the future and edit this post. 세영 and 세란 is kinda hard for me…if there are other people out their who have some sort of 한자 assembled for their names, please let me know. I would love to know because I am at a loss TwT

For now, I’ll go bye bye~

See you next post!

Hi there! I have a little problem... I'm trying to start my own art blog but no one goes by to see it and I'm about to give up... I don't know, what should I do? Thanks!

Alright, I’m gonna give you some tips on how to get your art noticed. I know it makes you feel bad when no one seems to see you, but you can’t give up! Because that’s how every artist who starts on tumblr goes through.

1.) Post every doodle you make: Especially the ones you aren’t working on anymore, they can be considered done. An art blog isn’t necessarily all finished drawings, doodles can look as good as a finished piece!

2.) Remember to tag it: If I remember correctly, the first 5 tags of an original tumblr posts are the ones that show up in searches (I could be wrong though, idk lol) But do give it lots of tags so it can show up in people’s searches!

3.) You might have to go a bit mainstream: If notes are what you’re aiming for, then you probably want to post stuff that are fandom-related or are just popular at this moment (Ex: Right now if you post star wars art, it’d probably get a lot of notes since the trailer for the next movie recently came out so people are definitely searching for it) But please don’t let that stop you from posting original content! A lot of people on tumblr will just reblog stuff cause it looks visually pleasing!

4.) Don’t stop posting art: Whether or not it gets notes, posting art is a good way to improve your skill and practice drawing I would recommend posting at least once or twice a week, or just post whatever drawing you make at your own pace

5.) Put a link to your art blog on your main: Maybe people who follow your main blog didn’t even know you had an art blog? There’s no shame in self-promotion!

(Bonus step) Post stuff at about 5-7pm: Idk if this will get you more notes, but tumblr is probably pretty active around this time lol

Aaaaand that’s all I got. Remember you can’t expect to get popular overnight, gaining followers takes time! And also remember try not to focus on followers too much. I know it’s really nice to have them and to be noticed, but art is something you do for fun! Don’t let anyone take away your fun, especially other people who want things that you don’t. You have something great to give to the world that only you can create! Good luck and don’t give up! I believe in you! ♥

Regarding "angry Phil": I don't find it weird that he didn't go all Hulk during the video - we all know he's really good at controlling his emotions and generally prefers to project positive emotions over negative. As to why he may have found this game challenging when they first played it - you pointed out that he seemed to "get" the games a little bit slower than Dan, he also had some difficulties with the controler. I don't know, but maybe that combined with the fact that maybe the first(pt1)

time around Dan was a little bit less supportive and more “teasing” resulted in “rage Phil”? What do you think?

oh totally, i don’t think it’s surprising in the slightest that phil didn’t get angry in this video–not just bc it’s for an audience and he’s good at controlling his emotions and maintaining a generally neutral or positive face/comportment for videos, but also because, in his own words, they didn’t lose this time around and, to take that a bit further, he was already familiar w pretty much every single one of these games since they’d played them before. my point wasn’t that it was surprising to see him keep calm, just disappointing bc on a purely selfish level as someone who is interested in seeing more sides of him than just this sort of upbeat veneer he maintains for his content, i would’ve loved to see him get even a tiny bit frustrated or impatient w dan or whatever. 

as for the question of why he got angry at dan in the first place, i guess the most natural interpretation from all the info they gave us on the topic would be that he got angry that dan was faster/better than him but that seems very strange to me coming from them, since they’re quite supportive of each other and don’t seem to be competitive in that way. i guess the possibility you suggested (that the first time around dan was teasing phil a lot more) could be accurate as we have caught repeated glimpses of phil intuitively rolling his eyes when dan makes fun of him for certain things, so i could see him going to full rage as an extension of that in-the-moment irritation if dan kept up a stream of teasing banter about phil’s capacity to play the game. still seems weird though bc i would expect dan to read phil’s emotions and be a bit more compassionate and stop if he sensed phil getting truly worked up or angry! so it would be surprising to me if he continued doing something that was visibly annoying phil to the point of it escalating into full-on anger. dunno thoughhhh it’s definitely unclear from the info they gave us lol!

anonymous asked:

I don't think you're homophobic, a bad person, or any of that and am sorry you're getting outright hate BUT I think you're missing a lot of the point. I am not going to presume that you aren't LGBT, but I am unsure if you understand how LGBT people are irritated at how het pairings as "overt" as v*****ri are typically accepted as they are (/cont)

(cont) yet so many gay pairings portrayed in the same vein are “ambiguous” or argue that it isn’t canon. The “they’re DEEPER than romantic love” is also hurtful as people aren’t discriminated against for friendships and erases what makes them so special to LGBT fans.

(cont 3/3) Essentially, I think although you have good intentions in trying to be objective, with what I said in mind when you add separate commentary such as pointing out that soulmates can be platonic or the late night drama thing it does deeply hurt people, because it sounds like you’re trying to downplay them—intentionally or otherwise

Hello! First of all, thank you for making a concrete example and articulating your point logically!

I’m taking this occasion to write a long reply that encompasses my view of Victor and Yuuri’s relationship also with regard to heterocentricity. It’s long, but hopefully it’s exhaustive…

Can you please write more about Taehyung? My heart is about to explode. This is exactly why I find him so interesting. I wanna know if maybe I missed some things so I like to read your perception. Sorry don't wanna burden you and please do it when you want to of if you ever have the time. It's just - amazing to read. Thank you.

💖 since i’m sick today & feeling emotional, i’m going to FINALLY do this. so here goes, bout to wax some sick poetic about my man. (instead of answering the 985 analysis things in my inbox) 🎻

Kim Taehyung is my 🌏, and lemme tell u why. This man smiles & loves from the bottom of his soul, way past his heart, way past that meditated place where sometimes we tend to go when people are talking to us, telling us things that we’ve heard before and we hear a lot. Taehyung hears compliments a lot….

“…Everytime he hears compliments he becomes shy and thanks people sincerely.” / “he’s very kind.” / “he [taehyung] is my savior.” / “He’s a very bright person.”  

…he receives a lot of love and dedication, but despite this, Kim Taehyung genuinely comes from a place of such beautiful warmth and kindness, that he never takes a compliment for granted, he absorbs love as much as he can and always repays it with as much as he can and yet he still feels like he’s not giving back enough.

“I think I received more love from you than I ever gave you, so thank you….I want to try my best to give more, more, more, love to you…..I’ll try harder and love you [ARMYs] more and more.” X

Ya know, Taehyung really has so much love to give. Explosive amounts. More love in his heart than anyone I’ve ever known. He cries easily, he feels things so deeply, he’s so terribly sorry to disappoint people, he wants to fill his heart with loved ones, he wants everyone to not just love him but love each other and respect each other. Taehyung is the most beautiful soul.

Taehyung who always tries his very hardest to make fans feel comfortable, make them laugh, make them smile, hold their hand. who isn’t afraid to play around and show vulnerable sides of himself too. Despite the fact that he doesn’t seem to like feeling exposed, and despite the fact that recently he’s stated he really truly wants to become a very ‘cool/manly’ person, and tries really hard to become that person. he still shares sides of himself that are uncool, and he still is willing to be goofy and fun with us, even though it’s always gotten him called things like ‘weird’ and go*forbiD ‘alien’ asjdfkljasf.

He who would give up everything he had for others. Who’s first thought when receiving the gift on the recent guest appearance they did, was to pick the food. Everyone laughed and thought; lol, of course, Taehyung WOULD do something goofy like that. When there’s all these cool things, of COURSE he’d pick the random food basket. And then when asked he said it was going straight to his parents. Or during Now 2? I think? when they did the seasons Kings, and he won the 2nd best food item, but he was so happy because it was the one his parents would like. And what he didn’t send he said he would share with the others. Taehyung who spends lowkey thousands of dollars on birthday presents for the other members, who ALWAYS puts other people first. Always. Without a second thought. Especially family and friends.

Taehyung who when he speaks sometimes gets nervous, has bad public speaking skills, constantly says the wrong words, uses the wrong tenses, sometimes speaks banmal on accident, speaks with satoori when he doesn’t mean to, accidentally uses the wrong words and ‘buffers’ (as in he just kind of stumbles over words, stutters and pauses because he’s thinking). This is because people have said that he’s hard to understand and weird, so he tries really hard and has to think a lot about what he’s trying to say. You can clearly tell when he’s feeling nervous even just speaking Korean. Forget abt it when he’s trying to speak English, which he said he wants to learn and has been practicing. But despite this he’s always trying to relate. Even if he can’t relate traditionally, lots of words and conversations. He tries. His Vapps that people make fun of him for, sitting around, eating, listening to music; this kind of thing…people think that he’s being weird. He’s just being himself. He’s trying to share his time with us without forcing himself. 

People like to think Taehyung is an extrovert. Taehyung is 100% not an extrovert. If anything he’s a fluctuating Ambivert. Taehyung isn’t much of a talker. Taehyung is also a rather physically inclined person (much like Jeongguk and Jimin). He doesn’t often speak much in Vlives (which people sometimes complain or like to say that his vlives are pointless) because it’s not what comes naturally to him, and maybe because when he does talk a lot he struggles. I get tired of people asking him to share himself with us, and when he does that in the only way he really knows how, they just kind of think it isn’t enough.

Taehyung honestly….the point I want people to never forget is that Taehyung really never goes anything less than 150%. 

Yet, people think that he’s a flighty, goofy, air headed guy. Despite the fact that he said he did very well in school. That he reads. That he’s an art, film and music buff who spends his spare time watching abstract, poetic angsty movies like sunshine of an eternal mind and knows how to play saxophone, listens to jazz and blues and classical music in his spare time.

Taehyung honestly…is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever seen, and also one of the most misunderstood idols I’ve ever seen. Really truly. It’s like, actually a lil crazy when i think about just how much people refuse to acknowledge in him, his growth, the kind of person he is. I feel like people are stuck with seeing him as the 2013 teenage boy who was a little bit anxious, excitable and goofy, who had an image to maintain who was told to act silly for the cameras and who was just a farm boy who was worried that he wouldn’t fit in, who barely made it onto bangtan as it was and who would have done ANYTHING to stay because he didn’t know it until it happened, but being a star was the life he was destined to have. Who’s parents scrapped up money to get him a fancy jacket so that he’d fit in and who never really planned to have much of any major life besides having lots of kids and a partner and loving his family a lot. But instead his family became bigger and he just embraced all of bangtan, and the staff, and the ARMYs, and random strangers, and random animals. Anything, everything. Taehyung is……..

MaN.. … . . Listen…I really…love…Kim Taehyung. I would cross an ocean to see him smile. Because honestly, he’s a li t e r a l    actual  angel.✨🐯 imma stop, this is literally a novel already. i’ll just continue waxing sweet poetic in the next ask or something. i’m exhausted by my love.

Dating Mark Tuan(Got7)

1. Oh, The Places You’ll Go. (RvB/Tuckington)
I wasn’t sure whether or not to put this at number one, since it isn’t necessarily my favorite, but you know what? This is the one I learned on. This is the one who gave me the writing bug. Sure, I had no idea what I was doing most of the time, and it drove me to distraction most days, but the amazing reaction from the community sits with me to this day and more than made up for the stress and fear that I was doing it wrong. Thanks to everyone who read and encouraged me and gave me such fond memories of this story. Without y’all, I wouldn’t love writing the way I do now.

2. Best Laid Plans (Rvb/Suckington)
I pretty much love writing this pairing, which allows for lots of funny dialogue while also being allowed to write really emotional pieces as well. So really I feel like I kid in a candy store whenever I write suckington, which is why I have such a fondness for this story in particular. I like the dialogue, I like the dramatic parts, and I feel like I actually took care with the characters in a way I didn’t always with some of my earlier pieces. 

3. Low-Hanging Fruit. (RvB/Flownut)
I didn’t take care with this story. I just think it’s fucking funny. And honestly, I think that’s the best part of it. Not gonna lie, I’m never happier than when I’m writing comedy. It’s all I ever want to do. As much as I like the occasional dramatic bits, comedic writing comes easier and faster than that stuff does. Being silly and ridiculous? I can do that. Being emotional? Uh….that takes precision and shit. Give me Flowers and Donut making nonstop innuendoes any day.

4. It takes a lot of time to live in the moment. (WtNV, Cecilos)
I haven’t kept up with this fandom in a very long time, so this was written in the early days, before they even got together. But you know what? I still like it. It was a test to see if I could write fanfic at all, and though I wasn’t sure if I was ready to try my own style, I felt more secure with attempting to mimic the show’s. So I did. And I think I did a pretty decent job, which gave me the realization that I could use that skill to help keep characters’ in…well, in character, when attempting to write fanfic again. Also, I mean. I always wanted to write a groundhog’s day loop.

5. Anodyne. (RvB, Kimkaina)
Kai makes everything fun to write, and Kimball pretty much owns my heart. Put them together and you’d get…actually, you get something unexpected. I thought I’d just enjoy writing this in a joking sort of way, but I didn’t think I’d enjoy them interacting as much as I did. I immediately wanted to write something longer about them, and even though I have a lot on my plate right now, I might just have an in depth story about them to tell one day. Could be interesting…

Could you please make a tutorial on how you draw your characters? Your art is so nice but you don't have to if you're busy!!!

i’ve recently simplified the way i draw- so it’s a lot faster for me and i personally prefer the outcome… but it’s probably not the easiest or the most helpful to learn from??? but ill try my best o(-<

so um this is just the basics of how i draw faces now

i used to draw out circles and sketch out where i wanted the details of the face, but it definitely took a lot longer and for some reason i would always make the eyes really big?? and the jaw really strange?? so now i find this method is a lot easier for me and helps me keep my facial proportions more accurate

but ofc adding guidelines underneath can be really helpful!! add as many underneath as you need

um i find hair is something everyone does differently though so i don’t have many tips for this part???

the only detail i think worth mentioning here is that i think hairlines are a fun detail to add! they help me diversify the hairstyles i draw and add a sense of realism??

definitely the way i draw now is not something that will work for everyone- but hopefully this gives you a rough idea of how i draw faces?

ill add some more tips/details under the cut,,,

Not hating, but I am honestly curious why you see potential in rivamika as a ship that would work, because in the anime/manga, most of the time I feel like everything Mikasa does is for Eren (especially in the anime, most of her lines are seriously just some variation of 'Eren'), just as how everything Levi does is for Erwin. And their interactions actually mostly revolve around saving Eren. I can't see them stop thinking of Eren/Erwn long enough to even notice each other tbh.

There’s actually a lot of reasons why, actually. Please note that I’m going to discuss why I think rivamika has potential, but I’m not trying to prove they have any romantic potential because I don’t personally think they do due to the theme and circumstances of the canon story (AUs/UAs are another story). However, there’s quite a lot of evidence that supports the ship. Maybe it won’t be enough to convince you, but it was enough for me and many other rivamika shippers.

Honestly, this fandom (and many others) have paired characters together with much, much less potential so I don’t know why so many people think rivamika doesn’t meet “shipping requirements.” I mean, part of the fun of shipping is being creative and match-making characters you personally think would make a cute couple. Hell, I even ship characters that barely/never interacted before because I think their personalities match up well and I like to imagine the possibilities. This is why I’ll never understand why fans these days have to explain themselves and provide proof, but meh. I got nothing better to do lol. 

I also want to note that I was fascinated by Mikasa and Levi’s relationship/parallels before I started to ship them–that was more of an aftereffect and a way to express my love for them. In other words, I’m capable of being unbiased while discussing their relationship :)

Orchestra according to a Violin
  • Flute: Pretty, competitive and bitchy...the violins of the woodwind section.
  • Oboe: We love you but why do you get so many solos? We will steal them off IMSLP when we get home dw. Also how can you get away with going on your phone in rehearsal? We're jealous.
  • Cor Anglais: Large duck, pretty chill and nice sound. You don't play enough for us to be jealous.
  • Clarinet: Yuck. ANnoyinG. Why do you never shut up. Please stay in the lower register, we're begging you no squeaking ear-splitting high notes.
  • Bass Clarinet: Yes please. The only acceptable clarinet. Nice low notes...when we don't drown you out.
  • Bassoon: We can't hear you even when you have a solo you're barely audible. Pretty awkward creatures.
  • French Horn: Either incapable of even playing the right notes or a perfect god shining over the rest of the orchestra. Lovely when you play chords together ahhhhh. Lots of majestic solos to steal.
  • Trumpet: SHHHHHHHHHHH! Why are you SO LOUD. One of you can drown a lot of us out so we're not impressed. Luckily you have lots of rests. Your egos are mahoosive and we don't understand why. Usually got a jokester in there though which makes rehearsals more enjoyable.
  • Trombone: Weeeeeeoooooooh. Slides sound fun and pretty triumphant when you come in loud. Seems boring for you guys in rehearsal tho.. sux 4 u.
  • Tuba: Why do you even come? How are you not bored out of your mind? We get bored sometimes and we play constantly and get tunes? Mysterious people not to be trusted.
  • Percussion: Yikes. Have fun counting back there.
  • Violin 1: Goals. Contains the leader of the orchestra which automatically means we are the most important section. The further back you get in deskings the smaller the egos but the saltier the people. Still don't get enough tunes or solos.
  • Violin 2: Rejects. The back of the seconds is a dark place. The front desk is good the rest of the section is a mess. Gets sweet low tunes supporting 1st violins. We hate the first violins.
  • Viola: Actually sound really good when they can play well...which is very rare. Incoming viola jokes lol.
  • Cello: We love you. Although maybe not when you play on the A string. Full of beautiful girls but also a few complete weirdos often hide in the cello section so watch out.
  • Double Bass: Very good to stare at. Don't think we've ever heard you either tbh. Is constant pizz and crotchets really fun for you??
  • Harp: Not really important here tbh. Very pretty though. Plink plink remember to bring a book to rehearsal while the other string instruments are practicing lmao.
  • Piano: Why does everyone play you. We treasure you if you're good accompanists you're literally our angels. However if you fuck up and put us off in a performance we will be giving you a dirty look to let the audience know it wasn't us.

Since it's the 4th of July - a sterek kid!fic with a Stilinski/Hale barbecue and kid!Derek being afraid of fireworks and kid!Stiles comforts him

Derek is sitting under the table with the blue-and-red plastic tablecloth drooped down low around him like a shield when Stiles discovers him.

Let’s get something straight though, k? Derek is eight years old. Practically a grownup. He is not afraid of the bright, flashy lights in the sky no matter what Peter says.

…He’s just not a big fan of the crashing noises that come with them.

A sparkle of orange glitter halos behind Stiles as he blinks at Derek curiously, and Derek fights not to jump at a thunder-like crackle that goes straight through his sensitive ears.

“Found you!” he announces, grinning bright. Like it’s still a game.

They’d been playing hide and seek before dinner, or trying to. Stiles had been no good at it at all. He’d always gotten bored and come out of his hiding spot before Derek could even really look for him, grinning when he spotted Derek and shouting found you! delightedly. Derek had tried to explain the rules to the kid more than once, but Stiles had just grabbed his hand and tugged him back to the counting tree to start over.

“We’re s’posed to find each other.” Stiles had explained back, like that was a totally reasonable game and not just the most boring thing in the history of ever. Derek had thrown his hands up in defeat after five tries, handed Stiles off to Laura, and gone in search of hot dogs.

Now Stiles is blinking at him with a head half-covered in holiday-themed plastic, confusion slowly taking over his beaming features when Derek doesn’t respond.

“It’s not hide and seek time,” he adds, seriously. At three years old, he doesn’t even have to duck to see under the high table. He does anyway, squatting down into a careful crouch.

Derek’s sitting on his butt in the grass, his head almost skimming the underside of the table. He crosses his arms, scowling defiantly.

“I know that.”

Stiles blinks at him, wide amber eyes seeming bright in the shadowed space.

“But you’re gonna miss the colors.” Derek can sense a pout coming. Stiles had been talking about “the colors” nonstop all day, practically vibrating excitement as he announced which ones were the prettiest in an expert tone to everyone who would listen (”blue, big blue ones, they’re the best. I saw them in videos on youtube”), tugging everyone’s sleeves he could reach all through dinner and dessert, asking what time they would start. And now he’s crawling under the picnic table toward Derek, letting the plastic shield fall back down behind him while the show goes on outside.

Derek crosses his arms tighter. Another thunderclap goes off, and it’s an effort not to just slam his hands right over his sensitive ears. That had been the plan when he’d ducked under here, but Stiles showing up had thrown that right out the window.

You’re missing them too.” Maybe if he reminds Stiles, the kid will go away, and Derek can sit here and suffer through the whole miserable experience in peace. “They’re pretty, remember?”

“So are you,” Stiles announces, like that’s the same thing at all. Derek shakes his head, because kids.

“You can see me all the time,” he replies, because that’s true. Their parents are practically best friends; they’re always having dinners and parties together, and Stiles has playdates with Cora so often he might as well have his own room at their house.

“You don’t play anymore though,” Stiles says. “Only at parties.” And maybe that’s true. Derek had played with Cora and Stiles a lot more last year, but that’s when he’d been seven. A baby, almost. Now that he’s eight, he can’t exactly hang around the playroom with the toddlers. He’s got a reputation to think about.

Still, he feels kind of bad that Stiles had cared enough to notice the change, and he had called Derek pretty, so Derek figures he at least owes him something.

“The fireworks are pretty,” he admits, and Stiles beams. “They’re just…”

There’s another clap, loud enough it makes him flinch and screw up his face, eyes squeezing shut.

A small hand closes over his. He squints his eyes open, heart thumping hard.

“Loud,” he admits, and waits for Stiles to laugh at him.

But Stiles’ eyes have gone marble-round in understanding.

Ohhh.” The word drags out long. A second later, his hand drops. He sucks his lip in between his teeth, pops it back out again. “Jackson says I’m loud. Is that why you don’t play anymore?”

It’s not ok at all for Stiles to think that, so Derek reaches down, snatching Stiles’ hand back up.

“No way, Jackson’s a dummy.” Derek doesn’t know Jackson, but he’s sure that’s true. “You’re a good loud, Stiles. You’re fun loud.”

It’s worth it, holding the kid’s hand, to see the sadness clear from his eyes, his lips wobbling back into a beaming smile. Derek grins back, the nervous-tense of his chest loosening. And when Stiles throws himself forward, wrapping his small arms around Derek’s neck, Derek decides it’s still worth it.

“Ok,” Stiles decides as he falls back, clapping his hands together. “So I’m gonna talk and be good loud so you don’t have to be scared of the bad loud.”

And he does, catching Derek up on everything he’d missed in Stiles’ apparently busy life over the past few months. Derek listens along, laughing at the way Stiles’ arms flail around with this stories, and he hardly notices the thunderous clapping has stopped until he starts seeing feet move around the bottom edge of the tablecloth.

“But dad caught the bad guy, Derek, but mom still said he was in trouble, Mr., because he’d promised he was just doing desk work–”

“Hey,” he cuts in, surprised. “You missed the fireworks.”

Stiles trails off from his story, his shoulders pushing up in a brave shrug. His eyes go down, though, and Derek can tell he’s not thrilled about that, even though he’d chosen to stay down here. Missing something you’d been looking forward to for weeks… that’s a lot to ask of a kid.

That’s probably what has him biting his lip, scooting a little closer to Stiles and murmuring, hushed:

“I can show you some colors, but you can’t tell anyone. They might not be as cool, but I think it might kind of make up for it?”

Stiles looks up, his eyes going hopeful, and Derek lets his own burn brightly.

The expression on Stiles’ face is better than watermelon and ice cream cake and hot dogs, all together.

At the next Fourth of July picnic, Stiles tells everyone who will listen that the prettiest of all the colors is most definitely gold.

Things that almost prove Sherlock is cis: he was shirtless and had no scars (ik scars wear off but there would probably still be some visible mark; my cousin had top surgery 4 years ago and there's still quite visible scars) they showed him as a kid and unless he started transitioning when he was like 6 or whatever he was born in a dudes body. They reference his dick a lot (I know trans dudes can get dicks, but balance of probability) don't you think Janine would have mentioned something? Idk

okay lol yall are really gonna be like this on a sunday……..let’s go. to start: you yourself are here saying “ALMOST” yeah, almost. as in, not really. second of all, you mention your cousin getting top surgery, which would suggest they are trans. why dont you try being a nicer person to the people in your life instead of bugging trans people trying to make trans content on the internet?????ANYWAY, getting to your points, which are honestly weak as hell:
1.he was shirtless and had no scars.
um as you said, scars can fade??? thanks for the self refutation. now you mention your cousin? having surgery 4 years ago? sherlock is a 30 year old man, and ive known someone who had top surgery when he was like……17?? or something? which is about when i think sherlock would have, or 19 or something, thats at least 10 years, first of all. like, obviously thats just me, though sherlock having surgery and this fueling his drug habit makes a lot of sense, and hes been clean for at least 5 years when we meet him in asip, which means his drug abuse would have started some time before then but, ANYWAY, second of all, there is more than just lateral incision, there is a type of surgery called “keyhole incision”, in which the scars are around the nipples, meaning the only scars are, on the nipples, and nipples are weird, like, to begin with. absence of lateral scars means nothing, in addition to the fact that, of course i know ben c is dmab and has never had breasts removed???**ill get back to this in a moment;;
2.they showed him as a kid.okay, im gonna let you in on a secret: children are androgynous. if we’re discussing secondary sex characteristics, children have not gone through puberty, and any child can look like any other child. i mean, not even to mention that sherlocks hair is, just a bit on the longer side, and he’s wearing a sweater which isnt obviously masculine, and trousers. girls (and especially girls who dont Feel like girls??? lol) can wear pants too. i know, what a shock. the victorians are UP IN ARMS. SECOND OF ALL, this is in sherlock’s MIND??? why would he see himself as a ‘girl’ ?? like??? why would mycroft?? (also nice weird language there, ‘born in a dude’s body’, you might wanna reexamine yourself there)(though, yeah, they will likely revisit sherlocks childhood in s4 which, again, proves nothing imo?? his parents could have been wildly supportive from the moment he started walking and talking and saying he was a boy, which some small (trans) children definitely do, but anyway)
3. “they reference his dick a lot”. okay im gonna need to stop you all the way right there. i have NO idea what show you’re watching, they have never explicitly mentioned sherlock’s dick? that i can recall?? let alone A LOT???? like excuse me??? i mean, number one, as you said, trans men can have penises???? just, revisiting the whole, surgery and drug abuse thing, in addition to sherlock being from a well off and supportive family, i do believe he had bottom surgery, and does have a small penis. but, beyond that idea, they dont EVEN REFERENCE A PENIS ANYWAY???????? LIKE ???? im?? what??? “janine would have mentioned it” to who? and when???? when would she have even seen this schroedingers penis???? sherlock explicitly, verbally, textually, canonically confirmed that they never had sex??? “just once would have been nice”-JANINE, CONFIRMS ? THEY NEVER HAD SEX???? he didnt even like KISSING HER, because he is GAY????? LIKE DID I MENTION HE IS FUCKING REALLY GAY AND DOESNT LIKE GIRLS NKFGJDFGHK AND HES A VIRGIN…?? the whole thing was a CONFIRMED SHAM….. IM???? what?!? it was clearly implied she fabricated all those stories????? and even if she did mention him having no penis, or a tiny penis, or being transgender, did YOU read those articles? did you? do you actually know what janine said? because, last time i checked, they didnt go into it very much at all…? yes, you can argue shitty tabloids would put something like that on the headline because theyre. annoying and transphobic. but, if you will recall, in trf, sherlocks “whole life story” was published, which means this would not have been new news in hlv (and again, not the headline back in trf either-not that we even saw all the headlines- because sherlock was basically being accused of kidnapping and probably murder just implicitly by way of him faking his cases which are largely murder so, that kind of trumps it); also, sherlock and janine are at a cross here, but clearly still get along in a friendly way, if sherlock didnt want something that personal published, she wouldnt have- not to mention the fact that she published lies anyway???? sooooooooooooo. no, janine would not have said? anything? and if she did we didnt see everything she said, on this phantom penis mentioning show youre apparently watching, so how do you even know???
okay so anyway, **revisiting this point, yes, i am aware that they are not making an explicit story about a trans man- i mean, they actually could be, but, i doubt it. im not giving mofftiss credit where credit is not due here. this isnt about that though, this is about fans connecting to characters, without dumbass comments like these bogging them down. because, its true, there are really only 4 things, imo, that can prove a male character is dmab. and most of those things never happen, to most male characters? (AND EVEN IF THEY DID ITS A GOD DAMN HEADCANON FOR FUN LMFAO JESUS) anyone anywhere can have a trans headcanon, my dude. like is this really such a problem that you feel the need to shit on it directly into my blog like this? is it? is it really??? like make your own god damn post. anyway every time i see people complain, in any capacity, about trans male sherlock i just lose my mind, where is this trans male sherlock take over fandom yall are seeing? i would love to know. most people who are supportive of it dont even create that much content. like, if you really find it necessary to come into my inbox and be this way, then i will absolutely come right back at you with the facts: HE HAS NOT BEEN PROVEN CIS/DMAB. end of story. most male characters have not been proven dmab. trans headcanons deserve their space, and we shouldnt NEED proof, but buddy if you and every other annoying person who cant let people just casually have their trans headcanons on THEIR blog are gonna argue, ive got it.

anyway, thanks a lot for spoiling the anon feature! its turned off early this weekend. if youd like to continue this pointless argument, show your face next time. goodbye. 

sherlock is trans.

When Misako tries to wrap the shoot up even though Shuta’s turn hasn’t happened yet.

texts with SVT (your boyfriend)
  • seungcheol/s.coups: texts you all day. will send you good morning texts and good night texts. will message you about every little thing throughout the day because he can't help but tell his most important person about it. will surprise you by talking about things you thought he forgot about. "this made me think of you" texts. sends you pictures of him being lonely without you. will take pictures hugging other members with captions like "this should be you." woozi tries to call him out on always being on his phone but that never seems to stop him, so you constantly have to remind him to work hard and that you'll text him after practice.
  • jeonghan: texts when exciting things happen, which for jeonghan is luckily all the time. "MINGYU JUST SPIT ALL OVE R THR FOROL LMAO" When the group has a little bit of rest time, you're the first person he wants to talk to. he likes hearing your stories, so he's always asking you about your day. will also ask you very personal things through text, and sometimes you have to tell him (in the sweetest way) to find his chill. expect a lot of selfies because your reactions are priceless and he loves teasing you. He's actually very laid back when it comes to texting though, and he doesn't mind when you forget to text back. Often sends texts meant for you to other members on accident and vice versa.
  • jihoon/woozi: is always worrying about you so he surprisingly texts quite often, but his texts are always straight to the point. "wear a sweater. it's cold out now." you two are always arguing over text (never anything serious just little stuff), and just when you're about to win, he'll bring up conversations from long ago that you don't even remember. on the off chance you do win, you don't let him forget it and he'll respond by sending you a really gross aegyo pic that kills you inside. But you also feel special because he trusts you enough not to show anybody else. He also likes to talk about the other members with you because sometimes this boy just needs to vent, but you know he writes those things with a good heart because he loves them. will send you pics of him working late at night and gets mad when you won't send him one back.
  • soonyoung/hoshi: is the biggest spam texter. sometimes you wonder how this boy can type so fast. It's like rapid fire, but it's okay because you'll reciprocate the speed. you two have at least three conversations going at once at all times, and what's amazing is how you both can talk about anything. He's the type to love every little detail and will text you when so much as a leaf falls to the ground, and when you text him about the smallest things he gets so happy. He likes to show the group your texts when they're funny and members are always wondering why you two talk about such nonsense, but it's like your own language that nobody else can understand, and you both love it for that reason. When things do get serious, you sometimes wonder if it's the same boy texting you because it's like a completely different aura, and you're surprised that you like it so much.
  • joshua: is most likely to emoji text. Sometimes conversations are had using JUST emojis. Joshua is always fun to text because he's such a funny and awkward person. Usually you'll talk about some weird anime he found, or Joshua will send you funny memes. Joshua texts less frequently on days he knows you're busy because he doesn't want to bother you and feels bad when he does, so you're constantly reminding him that he's never a bother. His favorite thing to do is send you random texts full of heart emojis and explaining how much he cares about you because he knows it'll make you smile. He also sends little reminders for things he thinks you might forget. "Remember to bring your flash drive to school today. Good luck on your speech! ♥♥♥"
  • junhui/jun: texts you a fair amount. He loves to send you greasy lines because he loves your reactions to them, but when you send the occasional one back he gets so flustered and kind of happy. Sometimes he'll show the other members. He especially loves to send greasy lines when he's sitting right next to you because he loves to watch how flustered you get when you read them. you both actually text the most when you're sitting right next to each other. when you both go out with the other members, you both text in a secret code only you two know and use code names when you're teasing the other members for their weird antics. when you both are apart, you're usually just talking to about your shared interests. Jun loves knowing things about you, so he's always trying to surprise you with research he did on that one subject you talked about for 5 minutes that one time.
  • seungkwan: is the most fun to text in seventeen because he always has so much to say. He's another spam texter but not as intense as hoshi. Seungkwan is only a spam texter because he separates his texts for dramatic effect. You and Seungkwan actually text a lot of mean things to each other and look like you're arguing all the time, but its how you both show you care. "Your face looks so silly in this picture, why are you making that face?" "Because I was thinking about your bad breath in the morning." "Next time I'm going to breathe right into your face." The others wonder how you both can be in a relationship like that, but it works for you both. On a sunny day when you're feeling generous, you'll tell him how cute he looks on tv, and seungkwan will almost burst into tears because you were watching him, but he'll never admit it. That's what you love about him.
  • hansol/vernon: a lot of one word responses. You often get a lot of "kk" and "lol" but that's only because you keep sending him memes. (Why are you doing that to him? He doesn't deserve this.) He actually does find them funny, and sometimes he'll show the other members when it's something he can't help but laugh out loud at. Once you guys get deeper into the relationship, Vernon opens up a lot more. When you surprise him with the occasional thoughtful message, Vernon gets to be his really shy and sweet self, and that's when he'll feel inspired and type an essays worth of stuff. Sometimes he'll make you happy cry because he actually really does have a way with words. He'll start messaging you more often too. He'll start your morning and end your nights with thoughtful messages. You'll see the real gem in him and he'll make you fall for him even more just through text.
  • seokmin/DK: always wants to give you a reason to smile so he's constantly sending cute pictures or memes or fluffy messages or funny messages. Other members will ask him why he's staring so hard at his phone. It's because he's trying really hard to send you quality material. Sometimes when he sends you stuff, you overreact because you want to make sure he knows you appreciate it. You are also always pestering him to send clips of him singing and deep down it makes him feel really happy and special that you like hearing him that much. Even if he pretends that he doesn't want to, he'll do it and your praise afterwards sends him to the moon and back. There is not a moment when this boy's texts don't make you smile. Please keep him safe.
  • mingyu: gives such an oppa vibe in his texts. He's always trying to take care of you and pretends like he's so much older than you when that's not really the case. "Let's go get some coffee tonight so you can work on your essay, but I'm not letting you stay up too late because you need rest." Which is funny because it's him that really needs to rest, but when you tell him that, he just texts back silly emojis. You get a lot of links to food tutorials with an excited Mingyu saying "Let's try making this!" He also keeps you updated on his career and likes to run his ideas through you first because he values your opinion a lot. You often send him pictures you find of him because you want to praise him but he thinks you're making fun of him so he pretends to be sad. That's when you start over-praising him and telling him he looks so good, and that just feeds his ego more.
  • wonwoo: There is so much fluff with this boy. he loves showering you with praise and supports everything you do. "Fighting!" Sometimes when you send him sweet messages telling him how cute he is, he won't respond for a few hours because he's so shy about it and doesn't know how to express that you literally just made his heart beat out of his chest. The truth is you both don't text each other too much because you both like to talk about your lives face to face. You'll spend whole nights talking instead of on your phones. Occasionally he'll send you a video message because he wants to make sure his words reach you in the best possible way.
  • minghao/the8: is the biggest victim of autocorrect. sometimes you wonder why he doesn't just turn it off. "I've got a long practice today, but the thought of our first kill last night is getting me through it." "First kill? Did we do something I'm not aware of?" "Kiss***" This is followed by a bunch of texts about how embarrassed he is. Despite this, his texts are the kind that make you smile during a bad day. The thing that will surprise you most is how funny he can be. He can say really weird things sometimes. He'll text you something weird, and you can tell from the way he typed how confident he was sending it. He'll talk a lot about the weird things the other members are doing, and sometimes he'll text you about things deep in his heart because he trusts you so much. It's very rare that minghao spam texts, but each time was because something major happened. The texts were the most precious things you've ever received. You enjoyed it so much that you have them screencapped and saved and archived on your computer.
  • chan/dino: is actually the most confident through text. Words seem to come much easier when he's texting you because he can look over it a thousand times before sending it. Often consults the other members around him before he sends fluffy stuff. Probably the member that gets his phone stolen a lot which means you get a lot of weird texts that make you think 'there's no way chan would write this.' Can sometimes be a little cocky through text but in a charming way that makes you smile. "You're so cute, but you would look much cuter next to me. Let's take a photo together next time." His favorite thing is to send you pictures of the other members when they don't look their best because since he's the maknae and they do it to him all the time. Is actually another member on the spam text list but he can't help that he's so excited, "I'm dating you after all, why shouldn't I be happy?"

Hey, I have one question! I'm not very familiar with the era that CP is on so I need a reference to Laurent clothes. Can you please help!

Edit: It was brought to my attention that I messed up some things in this post! You can find the explanations here. Another post should be coming soon, with more research and details.

Hello Anon! I can absolutely help you out with this, as I am quite familiar with French history (*points @ myself* French lol) - the culture from which Vere was ispired! Though I’m sorry for the late reply, it’s just that I wanted to do as much research as I could to give you a good answer for this. I would have even wanted to re-read the books to find more references that could help me and you on this, but I thought it would delay my response for too long… (I think I’ll do that very soon, though, so I can compile every clothing reference from the series for fanfic writers and fanart makers!) BUT ANYWAY, let’s get to this!

First off, it must be said that, since CP isn’t ~really~ set in an actual historical period - rather, it’s a made-up era* -, there are a few things about the series that can’t truly be related to any cultural aspect of history. But, thankfully, it’s not a lot of them, and most things actually can be related! Also, I have to say that I’m not a specialist when it comes to this, so there may be some things that are wrong. However, I did as much research as I could, trying to correlate what I learned in History class in high school and what I found on the net. Now, let us finally begin….

(* : Think about the fact that Vere seems to be inspired by medieval/Renaissance France - Middle Ages: Vth to XVth century; Renaissance: XVth, XVIth and XVIIth century -, while Akielos is inspired by Greece while it was under Roman control - 146 BC to 330 AD -…)

To help with my research, I first looked up the illustrations from the Japanese edition of the first series:

Img © prince-damianos

The style is obviously very altered from any actual historical reference, but from what I could find, the closest match for this kind of clothes is around the late XVth, XVIth and early XVIIth century. So, with that figured out, we can now start with the references! 

It isn’t pictured there, but let’s start with the undergarments. In the books, it’s often said that Laurent wears a thin white shirt underneath his dark clothes. This could very well be a Chainse. (Fun fact, that’s where the word “chemise” - shirt - comes from!)

Usually made of cotton, it was also sometimes made of linen or even silk (which are very thin and elegant fabrics) for the nobility.

As for the lower part, Laurent most probably wears Braies underneath his pants (which… weren’t actually pants at the time… you’ll see).

These were made of the same material as the Chainse was made.

(Note: the Chainse and Braies might look too “peasant” for memebrs of the nobility, but these were actually worn by everyone! Whether they be kings or field workers, they all wore these garments underneath their clothes, because they were an important part of the medieval Costume.)

Then, it’s said that Laurent wears thight-fitting clothes that cover him “from neck to toe.” This is broken down into three different parts.

Number one, upper part: the Pourpoint (or Doublet).

Painting by Giovanni Battista Moroni (around 1525 - 1578)

The material used for this was most probably cotton or wool, or in any case, rich materials. And even though the painting shows that it was fastened with buttons, laced Pourpoints were also very popular amongst the nobility! -wink emoji-

And this is the part where there is a little bit of a historical innacuracy (can’t blame C. S. Pacat at all, since she just used the references to inspire herself), because the Pourpoint only covers down to the waist. And, as you can see on the Japanese illustration, Laurent’s Pourpoint covers him down to his mid-thigh, more or less. 

For this, I’d say that you can really do as you wish: either use the Japanese illustration as reference and do a “long Pourpoint”, or go the ~historically accurate~ way and do an….

Number two, middle part: the Haut-de-Chausses (or Trousses).

This garment is made out of vertical pieces of fabric attached together at the level of the waist, underneath the Pourpoint, with puffy cloth stuffed inside, to give it that particular bouffant look.

As you can see in the picture above, the Haut-de-Chausses evolved a lot during the XVIth century. I think that the most accurate one (referring to the Japanese illustration) would be the one from 1580, where the “puffy” look started to get abandonned, to go for a more “skirt-like” look. Like this:

In any case, there must always be something to cover the crotch because, as I said in the beginning, there weren’t pants in this time! And this is where it gets kind of strange! :’D

I know it’s often said in the books that Damen removes Laurent’s pants, though I don’t know if it was to make it all less complicated to explain, or if C. S. Pacat really wanted to give Laurent actual pants. But, if you’re going the historical way, you’re going to want to give Laurent…

Number three, lower part: the Chausses.

This is a pair or garments worn underneath the Haut-de-Chausses (“haut”= “high” which means that the Haut-de-Chausses will always go over the Chausses!). And, as you can see, the Haut-de-Chausses are most probably meant to hide the crotch part where the two Chausses aren’t joined, which looks really ugly imo. And they may look a bit baggy on the pic, but some of them were very tight. The fitting of the Chausses really depended on the wearer’s preferences.

As for how these are attached to the rest of the clothes: they are laced to the Pourpoint, at the waist. (I love how this literally historically justifies the whole “thos damn laces” thing about Laurent lol).

As with the Pourpoint, wool and cotton (but especially wool, since it’s warm) were the preferred materials for these garments.

And, finally! We’ve reached the shoes! This one was a bit tougher, because it wasn’t common for people to regularly wear boots outside of hunting (as Laurent does). But my guess is that he weras just that: hunting boots. And there are various designs for those:

(The latter ones are very much inspired by our boots from nowadays, but I’m guessing that’s probably the style C. S. Pacat wanted for Laurent?)

The only available material for the boots at that time was leather, which is usually very stiff when it’s “new,” and later becomes malleable (and super comfy!) with regular use of the shoes. Which is something you probably alreayd knew, but I’m saying it anyway because I have the impression that Laurent would always wear stiff boots (which means having boots made for him every feew months)… To give himself a more “severe” look, don’t you think?

And… I think that’s about it! So sorry this is so long, and that it took me so much time to post it aaahhh. But I hope it helps you at least a little bit! And if you have other questions, related to this or about other things from the series, always feel free to drop me a message! I hope you have a wonderful day, anon ❤

EXO as husbands
  • Requested by @yehet88exo
  • Xiumin: The cuddly husband. No matter how long you guys have been married for, he still wouldn't be able to keep his hands off you. After a long day of work, he'd love to curl up with you on the couch and watch a movie together. He would always tell you about how lucky he is to have you. I don't think he'd be that talkative, but sometimes all you need is a few words to say how you feel about someone. Xiumin would also be a really comforting person, and would listen to you talk about anything. He wouldn't judge you at all, he would just listen. He'd be such a caring and loyal husband, and he would always make you feel loved.
  • Luhan: The loyal/trustworthy husband. Luhan would be so loyal to you, that you wouldn't have to worry about anything, if say he was away filming a movie or something. I think he would be a really committed person. You could tell him anything, and he wouldn't tell a soul. He would be so good at comforting you when you feel down, and he'd always know what to say to make you feel better. He would be so proud and happy to call you his s/o, because to him you're the most precious thing in the world. I also think that he'd be really dorky at times too. He'd make bad jokes, or do something really cheesy, but it would be kinda cute tbh.
  • Kris: The emotional/dorky husband. Not really what you would expect from him, but I think he would be a very emotional person. He would always come to you to talk and seek advice. He would be 100% honest with you about how he's feeling and would let you know everything that's been going on. I think it would take a while for him to trust you this much, but once he trusts you he, trusts you. He would love to surprise you too. Sometimes he'd make you breakfast or buy you flowers on his way home from work. He'd be a really cuddly person too. He would love to hold you close, or sometimes just something simple like holding your hand. Alongside that he's also a huge dork, and would constantly make bad jokes/puns. Sometimes he'd try to be really romantic, but half of the time I think something would end up going wrong or he'd accidentally mess something up. Tbh though, I think that it would be sorta cute when he messes up, which would make up for all of it. Being married to him would never be boring, to say the least.
  • Suho: The sentimental husband. I think that Suho would be the kind of husband who wants to remember every moment with you. He would remember all your anniversaries, and would always know just what to get you. He would be a great listener, and would always know just what kind of advice to tell you. I think that he would be the husband who, maybe 20 years down the road, would propose to you again just to remember how amazing the day he got married to you was, making him fall for you all over again. Along with this would probably come the fact that sometimes he'd be painfully cheesy, and sometimes it'd be cringe worthy. But, at the end of the day you fell for him. His smile, his intelligence, even his cringe worthy jokes.
  • Lay: The romantic husband. He would be so romantic, like girl. He'd be the kind of husband to pick you up flowers from work on his way home for no reason, or leave you a little note before he went to work telling you how beautiful you are. He would know everything there is to know about you, and vice-versa. No matter how young or old you guys are, the romance would still be as strong as ever with him.
  • Baekhyun: The cheeky husband. Baekhyun would honestly tease the shit out of you. The type of teasing he does would really depend on his mood. Sometimes it would be lighthearted and funny, like when you guys are lying on the couch together watching your favourite show and he makes a joke. Other times it would be cheeky, like he would run his hand up your thigh in public and whisper the things he'd want to do to you later. No matter how long you guys had been married, I think he'd love to see you flustered. I also think that he would tell you that he loves you, like a lot. And of course, there's nothing wrong with that.
  • Chen: The fun husband. There would never be a dull moment being married to Chen. He'd love to take you out, sometimes something simple like bowling, other times maybe on a trip with just the two of you. You guys would always be laughing, usually at each other. He would love to joke around with you, and he'd tease you constantly. I also think he would love to do something cute, like recreate your first together.
  • Chanyeol: The protective husband. Even though he jokes around a lot and is just be a genuinely fun guy to be around, the second someone lays a hand on you or hurts you that would totally change. He would protect you at all costs, and if someone dare lay a hand on his s/o that would change his 'sunshine' personality. It wouldn't necessarily be jealousy, because he doesn't really seem like a jealous person. It's more when/if someone hurts his s/o that he'd be protective, if that makes sense? I also think that he'd be a really fun guy to be around, and would love to see you happy and smiling. (of course)
  • Kyungsoo: The serious husband. I don't really know how to explain this, but I just think he'd be a really serious husband. I think it would be hard for him to talk about his problems with you, no matter how long you've know each other. It's not that he doesn't trust you, I just think he wouldn't want to worry you. He would put you before himself, and you'd be his #1 priority. I think that he would let lose a lot though, and of course he wouldn't be serious 24/7. He would love to take you out and do fun things, especially going out places that you did when you first started dating. He wouldn't be big on pda or anything though, and I just don't see him as a cuddly person. Nonetheless he would still come up with endless amounts of excuses to steal a kiss from you.
  • Tao: The clingy husband. He would cling to your side, and would love being with you, but he wouldn't really understand that you need sometime to yourself in the beginning of your marriage. He would love to take you out places, and see the smile on your face. Tao would love to take you out to something simple, like maybe the movies or something. It would remind him of when you guys first started dating, and he would fall in love all over again. I think he would also be a great listener, and would always try his best to give good advice to you.
  • Kai: The thoughtful husband. Kai would see you as the most beautiful, amazing person alive, and he would like to tell/show you that. He would plan really thought out and romantic dates after not seeing each other for a while (ie. he was on tour) and would always know what to say to you after you've had a long day. Of course, he wouldn't always be so serious. He would love joking around with you and going out on simple dates, etc. I think he would love going for walks in the park with you, sometimes with his dogs, and just enjoying the nature and being with you. I also think he'd be the kind of guy to take pictures of you when you weren't looking and set them as his phone background or post them on social media.
  • Sehun: The caring husband. Although Sehun may joke around or tease you a lot, he really does care about you. Sometimes it would be harder for him to show it than others, but he would really put a lot of thought into everything he does with you. He would put so much thought into something like a birthday or anniversary gift that it would make up for all the times he messed up. I also think he would be really clingy, especially at home. He would be holding onto you almost 24/7. I think that even though he may not act/show it all the time, you would really be the most important person in the world to him, and he would constantly wonder how he ended up with someone so amazing.

5x16 “Dark Side of the Moon”

“Apparently the Nest Messes with the Victim’s Head, Shows Them Things They Love. Parts of Their Soul in Distress. It Keeps the Victim’s Soul Vulnerable” - Or: Have Some Meta Relating to S12 That Will Never Happen on the Show, But I Keep Writing about Anyway

I initally hadn’t wanted to write about this at all as I feel it kind of useless since it’s not going to be in any way featured in S12 I am 100% certain, but what can I say? Sometimes you hold onto hopes that you know will not be answered. ;) Point being: The newst promo pictures for S12 immediately had me thinking of the episode captured above and especially this particular moment due to the green/blue tint we have in the picture as well as the small, but important word “fear” placed atop Dean in this picture. Now, it seems it’s a cap from a clip, if you ask me, so the “fear” could be part of various sentences that make “fear” as a word itself not as relevant, but for now I’ll just treat it as a standalone word, because it makes it apply so nicely to 5x16 “Dark Side of the Moon”.

“Dark Side of the Moon” written by no other than new showrunner Andrew Dabb of course follows the Winchesters’ quest to escape Zachariah while in Heaven and stumbling across all kinds of “best of”-memories that soon turn sour especially for Dean since Sam’s “best of”-moments are mostly moments in which none of his family is featured. Now, whether Zach maybe chose certain memories in order to cause tension between Sam and Dean or not is really not relevant, but the fact that Dean feels like he had no “special place” within his brother’s Heaven surely relates perfectly to this moment coming along later in which Zachariah uses Dean memory of his mother to twist it around to his liking and to torture Dean in probably the most horrific ways as not only has he Mary tell Dean that she never loved him and considered him a burden, but also that it’s Dean’s own fault that people leave him behind, which directly connects to the experiences leading up to this moment where Dean has felt that Sam enjoyed the time away from him (it’s this fact that makes me wonder how much of those “greatest hits” of the boys were true “greatest hits” or how much those were manipulated by the angels too possibly) much more than those with him.

The show has gone out of its way on multiple ocassions to showcase that one of Dean’s biggest fears is to end up alone. So Zach having Mary tells exactly that to her son as well as that she never loved Dean is about the most painful and disgusting thing Zachariah could have done.

Now, the reason I had to think of this moment when seeing the S12 promo picture is due to how the greenish-blue tint in the episode indicated that something was not right, but that something went “toxic”. You can feel the emotions of fear, anger and hurt radiating off of Dean here due to what he is told - so to me it perfectly fits to the picture of Dean for S12 with the word “fear” atop of him. I think given that the connecting piece between S12 and this episode is Mary Winchester and the fact it was written by Andrew Dabb who, I suppose, shapes S12 as heavily as no other writer, I would not be surprised if he sort of “played” with this memory of Mary in Heaven in S12.

We already know from what Jensen said, that Mary will make the brothers more vulnerable and also someone Dean feels the need to protect and likely sacrifice himself for. And it’s this aspect of vulnerability overlapping with the emotion of fear that brings me back to S11 and the episodes that felt heavily important for myth arc things that seem to have been thrown overboard in the last few episodes and in so far are left hanging mid air imo.

I have talked about this before while S11 was still airing, but I am too lazy to find a link right now (sorry, I am being an even shittier person today than I already am in general I suppose lol), but basically 11x16 “Safe House” to me was one of the most important episodes in terms of foreshadowing (that sadly went nowhere in the end) and connection to the myth arc. The soul eater and the nest imo could be very well analyzed as parallels for the Empty and Amara.

While the reunion bit of God and Amara has been foreshadowed seasons in advance and didn’t exactly come as a surprise, the complete dropping and forgetting about the Empty was a little disheartening (at least for me). I am very much thinking that Mary is back completely and that Dean is well and alive in S12, but still I would like to offer a “theory” - though this is certainly too much of a word for these loose thoughts - on what could also have happened in the finale. I know it’s not where the show is going, but there’s room for possibility to headcanon into a different direction and have fun with crazily speculating anyway.
