I love how Jon repeats what Damian said to him in the second panel. Even though he bickers with him and they fight a lot, Jon does listen to what Damian says and takes his words to heart. I love that about their relationship. They act like they don’t get along but in the end, there is this kind of grudging respect between the two of them. It’s great and I honestly can’t wait for them to become real friends.

I said it before but...

When I erase posts where people send me compliments, it’s not because I’m ungrateful. I usually keep them public so the person who send it to me can see I thanked them (it’s most of the time anonymous people) and that their comment is making a difference, is genuinely helping me, motivates me etc etc…and then I erase it because I’m afraid people will think I’m pretentious posting those compliments about my own writing, or sometimes, it also get super overwhelming and I just prefer to keep those compliments for myself…

So I erase those posts where people are being extra-nice to me. Not because I don’t appreciate them, but because sometimes, I just can’t take a fucking compliments and freak out and…I guess I’m a bit strange. 

Thanks to everyone for any feedbacks though, and I answer EVERYONE’S MESSAGES, so that mean if I didn’t answer yours, I didn’t receive it. I always wait a few days to erase them, hoping people will see it before I got on a “I’m gonna erase every compliments ever so people don’t see I receive them” rampage…Anyway, from the bottom of my heart : thank you

Linkin Park was/is so important to me.
Linkin Park made me who I am.
I remember the first time I heard any of their music, I was in 4th grade and we were having some kind of party. For that day on my life was changed completely. I finally felt not so alone, like everyone went through shit and it would be okay.
Linkin Park helped me get where I am today, without them I’m sure I’d be dead.
I’m in incredibly devastated by this news about Chester, but I understand. Sometimes life gets hard and you feel like you can do it anymore.
I feel so lucky to still have the albums and some sort of comfort in them, but my world will never be the same with my main guy.

Rest in Paradise, Chester Bennington.
Thank you for everything❤️

i don’t know why but there seems to be a big difference to me between the phrases “i’m in band” vs “i’m in a band”

because like “i’m in band” reminds me of marching and concert bands ran by schools

but “i’m in a band” makes me think of a little rock band that meets in a garage on saturdays

don't you think it's a bit of an oxymoron? emphasizing that they will keep doing what they're doing even though they're not? they are rebranding and trying to be more appealing, the english acronym is definitely a response to their western popularity, i think both those statements can't be true at the same time

the two aren’t contradicting at all haha. by “keep doing what they have been doing”, they mean they’ll keep making music, keep telling the real stories of themselves to speak up about social issues, deliver messages about hope and motivation through their music, with the goal of inspiring other people, specifically the youth like them. i can say this is their ultimate goal. by inspiring other people to improve themselves, bts is showing their own development as musicians and human beings as well. now, the rebranding, the english name meaning change, they are extra steps that bts took to reach closer to their ultimate goal.

on a business aspect, a rebranding is needed when the old one is no longer capable of reflecting the brand’s current situation, lack the capability of fully expressing the brand’s motives and perspectives, or isn’t potential for future growth. i have explained why bts’ old logo is not suitable anymore in the previous post, but basically the old logo can only reflect half of bts’ ultimate goal aka. “speak up about social issues”. it doesn’t show the side of continuing to move forward and deliver hope and motivation to inspire other people. that’s why a rebrand is needed.

the english acronym is a response to their western achievement, but it’s a long-dued one since “bts” has never really had any english explanation other than being the acronym for “bang tan sonyeondan” in korean, and now it finally has a true meaning. there are various ways to interpret “beyond the scene”, but i’ll just talk about my own interpretation.

1) beyond the scene = beyond the k-pop scene. you all know the famous “this k-pop category ain’t big enough for me” line in agust d right? ;; with bts’ current success, they no longer think of the korean market only, they are trying to aim to the whole world, to produce better music and make more people be able to relate to their music, their stories more. this is also a hint to their ultimate goal mentioned above.

2) beyond the scene = beyond the screen. i don’t know how to phrase my thoughts on this but a scene, as in a movie scene, a play scene, is something that can only be enjoyed and doesn’t have much affect on the real world. it stays in the scope of the movie or play. going beyond the scene means that bts no longer just simply rap and sing, they’re going for something more than just mere performances, more than what you watch to entertain. they’re setting the goal of going beyond those to make actual influence to the real world, to other people’s lives.

those two statements can be true at the same time. bts’ motives stay the same, but their methods are developing and their goals, their playground are growing bigger.

His sisters Arya and Sansa would marry the heirs of other great houses and go south as mistress of castles of their own. But what place could a bastard hope to earn?
