After a short hiatus, I bring you episode 8! 80% of the gifs from this episodes were Eros but even so Yuuri managed to have a range of expressions too large for 1 gifset. I enjoy how straightforward this episode is for Yuuri as a whole. It feels like he has control the entire time, even when life throws him curve balls.
Q: You have made your first appearance in Japan as EXO-CBX. How was the performance?
Baekhyun: I think a lot of people other than our fans came today. We worked hard to show a cool appearance to both our fans and to those who saw us for the first time.
Q: What is the appeal point of EXO’s first subunit, EXO-CBX?
Baekhyun: EXO has had a lot of impressible performances, but EXO-CBX can deliver easily accessible music to people of all ages.
Q: What is the imitation concept point of ‘Ka-CHING!’?
Baekhyun: Firstly, a point of the MV is that it is highly entertaining. We also filled it with our message. The meaning is especially for those in their teens, saying that 'Money isn’t everything.’ The point [dance] of the performance is spending money at the chorus. The addictive quality of the phrase 'Ka-CHING!’ is memorable and the choreography can be easily imitated, so many people will be able to follow along!
Q: Were there any memorable moments during MV filming?
Chen: There have been a lot of MV filmings at sets until now, but for this MV, all the background was done by CG, so it was memorable to film in front of a green screen.
Xiumin: We just mentioned that we wanted to relay the message that 'Money isn’t everything’, but if you watch the MV, it looks as if we’re rich people’s kids…
Baekhyun: We were with Japanese backup dancers for the first time. The dancers had face paint on, but I hope everyone can enjoy our chemistry with the dancers.
Q: What fashion will you enjoy this summer?
Baekhyun: Summer is hot. So I want to use sandals as my main fashion. I handle hot weather well, so I want to show fashion that looks simple and cool.
Xiumin: I don’t expose much during summer, but I think fashion that looks refreshing would be good. For example, a style with a loose, see-through material shirt, or a T-shirt.
Chen: I like street fashion, so I hope a lot of people enjoy street fashion this summer.
Q: Out of the three of you, who is the most well-informed in fashion?
EXO-CBX: (Together) The three of us are alike.
Xiumin: Anyways, I don’t know that much about fashion!
Q: What kind of summer fashion do you recommend to ladies?
Baekhyun: For me, jeans with a yellow T-shirt. I think yellow T-shirts are cute, so I’d like it if they were worn. Wear the T-shirt down to the waist!
Xiumin: I like the color blue, so I’d like it if they wore light blue clothes.
Chen: For me, I like fashion with a long-sleeve T-shirt and jeans, with the shoes as the point.
Q: Please give some tips on achieving your dreams to modelpress readers.
Xiumin: I think you should not be afraid of achieving your dreams. If the dream can easily come true, I don’t think it’s actually a dream, so I hope you will continue trying for it even if you keep failing. I think maintaining this kind of attitude is the key to success.
Baekhyun: Knowing yourself is also a shortcut to success. Knowing what you are good at and knowing what you are bad at, and working on improving those good parts of yourself and not showing the parts you don’t have confidence in. If you can assess those things and work at your dream, I think you can arrive at your dream through this shortcut.
Chen: I think experience is the most valuable. So even if you fail, don’t become frustrated and think of what you have gained from that experience as precious. So as a result, you can make up for your shortcomings, and you will be able to approach your dream.

Tonight on Aunty Fishy abuses the Ewan McGregor Google Search algorithm, here is a WIP of the three Obi-Wans in my fic Where Shall We Three Meet Again? They’re not done by any stretch of the imagination but you know, how could I not give Arulas his proper eye color? HOW CAN I RESIST SITH EYES? I AM NOT MADE OF STONE.
They are from left to right…
Canon! Obi-Wan Kenobi otherwise known as The Old Man or occasionally Ben Kenobi. Fem! Obi-Wan otherwise known as Little Sister. Sith! Obi-Wan otherwise known as Darth Arulas.
Sir-Not-Appearing-In-This-Picture-But-In-This-Fic is Anakin Skywalker, otherwise known as The Podracer and you can find a lovely portrait done by @writegowrite right HERE.
Also, please click to make it bigger so you can actually see details, if you want to? You don’t have to but I think it looks better that way. Also, I think Arulas has raided Count Dooku’s wardrobe. I may need to talk to him about that.
oh, the panels are great! paranatural has a great sense of motion and movement.
i think whats getting people irt recent art crit, is more like… the style itsself? the colors are a lot more pastel as opposed to older chapters, which had more blacks and saturation and color difference.
another thing is how… round everything seems to be. personally i enjoyed the sharp edges on everyones faces, hair, yknow. id add photos to make my point clearer but alas, im on mobile.
my main point was how things got sort of softer and lighter once chapter 5 started. some folks dont care for it, some do.
“Noona, what are you talking
about?” GD whines as he sits up, pulling me on to his lap. The other boys
follow suit, sitting up and trying to rub the sleep out of their eyes without ruining
their makeup. I, on the other hand, know my makeup is already messed up so I
don’t mind making my raccoon eyes even worse.
“Our lovely Charlie, even in her
sleepy state, has been able to woo not only our company’s Ikon but also BTS.
Their managers have came and started asking questions about her, I blew them
off but if their boys pester them enough they will be back with more questions
and won’t go away as easily. Not to mention a few other groups that are asking
around about the pretty foreigner who was being lead around by Ikon.” She looks
to me, “Lottie, what did I tell you about that magic potion of yours’.”
“Here I thought it was just my
amazing good looks that drew guys to me,” For once, she did not appreciate my
playfulness; her mouth pressed into a thin line. “Look, I don’t know what you
want from me Unni. I got lost, ran into Ikon, who offered to walk me back but
all these boys kept popping up.”
She lets out a stressful sigh
before plopping down on the couch beside us, “I know Lottie, I’m sorry, it’s
just that…” I can see her struggling to find the right words.
“It’s just that the more people who
know about you the more likely chance the fans, of any group, will also find
out about you and we don’t know what will happen when they do. You know how
people react when an idol comes out with a girlfriend. Imagine how they will
react to a girl who is incredibly close with big bang and friends with other
popular groups.” GD finishes for her.
“Not to mention the fact that you
are already so busy with work that you barely have time for us, and we aren’t
happy with the idea of sharing you,” Top ads with a little smirk.
“Thank you guys for worrying about
me. But I’m a big girl I can take care of myself when it comes to fans, and who
needs sleep, I would much rather be with friends. And when it comes to sharing
me, you guys will always be my favorite oppas, no one can take your place.” I
smile sweetly at them and they give me one back.
Seungri’s eyes narrow on me, “So
we’re your number one oppas?”
“Not your number one idol group?”
He doesn’t look offended, just kind of annoyed and amused. “I know we don’t
talk about it but where are we on your list?”
“Seungri,” Unni comes into defend
me but Youngbae cuts her off.
“No, Seungri is right to ask that,
if we are going to have to deal with these other guys around our Charlie we
should at least know how she feels about them, as idols of course.”
I begin chewing on my lip when all
the boys and Unni turn to look at me. GD’s grip on me has only tightens, I can
feel his nervousness about my response. In fact I can feel that everyone is
nervous, not just me. We have never talked about my bias list beyond their
group because it has always made us uncomfortable to talk about people they
know and that I awkwardly like.
“Are you guys sure you want me to
“Are we really that low on your
list?” Top teases but I know he is a little offended.
I’m quick to response, “No, no,
no! You are all in my top 10.”
His eyebrows raise, “We aren’t the
I shake my head awkwardly.
“Okay lets do this, start from
number 1,” Seungri demands as he leans forward, suddenly serious.
“No,” Unni buds in as she grabs a
piece of paper and a pen to write it down, “I’m enjoying their stressing, start
from 10.” She smiles at me.
With a deep breath I start, “This
just based off you guys as idols, before I even knew you guys,” I clarify. They
all nod eagerly, wanting me to continue, “Seungri.” Automatically Seungri is up
on his knees, slamming his hands down on the coffee table.
“I’m at the bottom?” He nearly
yells with a deep pout.
Youngbae kicks him, “Ya! We already
kind of guessed that now shut up so we can know where we are on this list.”
“Sorry Charlie, please continue,”
GD says with a small smile.
“That little punk beat me!” Seungri
is up again, earning another kick and scolding from Youngbae.
Youngbae already has Seungri flat
on the floor with his feet firmly on his back so he can’t get back up unless
allowed. He’s giving me a sweet smile for me to continue.
“Daesung Oppa,” I look at him,
worried he would be upset with his placement but he just smiles widely at me,
just happy to be on the list. “Jooheon from Monsta X. Youngbae oppa,” Again I
stop and look at my oppa.
“Don’t worry about me Charlie, I’m
satisfied that I’m above this fool.” He puts a little more force on Seungri’s
back, earning a whine from the younger.
“You guys promise you won’t be mad
about the next one right?”
Their eyebrows go up, but Unni
speaks, “Don’t tell me, it’s someone from Ikon.”
I nod, “B.I.”
“Yep.” I pop my lips on the p.
GD take a deep breath, “I’m
somewhere on this list right?”
“Yes, you are number 3!”
He releases the deep breath and
relaxes he grip on me, “Thank god, I was going to kill that kid if not and take
“Where does that leave me?” Top
asks with a big confident smile.
I actually feel bad when I say, “At
number 2.” The rest of the boys laugh loudly at their hyung getting shut down,
Unni is even hunched over laughing.
“Who the hell is at number one?”
Top asks standing with his arms crossed over his chest.
“Top sit your butt down or I won’t
let her tell you,” Unni says as she tries to stop laughing. Top drops back to
his seat, still mumbling with a blush across his handsome face. “Go a head.”
“Xiumin from EXO.” As soon as the
words are out of my mouth, I’m dumped on the couch as all of them stand over me
like fathers about to scold a child.
“We lost to that little chipmunk!”
“Seriously Charlie? What the hell
does he have that we don’t?” Top growls.
“Thank you for the list of people
you are never allowed to interact with,” GD says as he snatches the list away
from Unni who is dying of laughter at their loss.
“Ya!” I pout. “You can’t do that!”
“And why not?”
“Because I am a grown adult, not
some child you can control. As I said this list was from before I knew you
guys. I could say again, that you guys are my oppas not the idols I had posters
of in my bedroom anymore, but I have feeling that won’t matter.” I snap back at
I’m surprised when Youngbae cracks
a smile, “You had posters of us in your room?”
“Oh good I didn’t say that out loud
did I?” I bury my face in my hands. Youngbae comes up and hugs me, laughing
“Our little princess had posters of
us in her room, that’s so cute!” He swings me around as he laughs.
“Which one?” Daesung asks, giving
me his large goofy smile when Youngbae lets me go.
“It’s has GD oppa with some
multicolored fur, Youngbae oppa is blonde, Dae oppa looks really pretty, Top
oppa is running his hand through his hair, while Seungri oppa is wearing some
orange tie-dyed shirt.”
“I remember that one, do you still
have it?” GD is now grinning happily.
“It’s on my wall at home with a few
“Yea, I figured it would fit in
better here than if I left it back in America.”
“Omo,” GD hugs me this time, “Our
princess is so cute!”
“So are we all good?” I ask when GD
lets me go.
“Yes Princess,” Daesung uses my new
nickname cutely. “We are always good, we
are just going to get a little jealous now and than.”
“But we will always be your
favorite, right?” Top pinches my cheeks.
After a nice moment, Unni jumps up
and says, “Now that all that is out of the way, about the show we are here for.
You guys have thirty minutes to be at the stage.”
They let out a chorus of groans.
“Can one of the makeup unnies fix
my makeup?” I ask Unni.
“Yea, give me a minute.” She runs
into the hall for a minute, returning with a pretty girl about my age. The girl
has me sit in one of the chairs in front of one of the many vanities. She
quickly touches up my eye makeup, fixing my wings and eye shadow, unable to do
much for my foundation since she didn’t have any dark enough to match my tan
skin. When my make up is fixed, we head down the hall, my head down and sandwiched
in between Top and GD. We reach the side of the stage and the guys are hooked
up to their mics. They are talking to me none stop, explaining everything and
everyone. I listen happily, enjoying the way their faces light up as they talk.
When it’s their turn to go on stage
they place kisses on my forehead, much to Unni’s displeasure, and head out to
their placements. I watch amazed as their switches flip from my oppas to the
idol group big bang and I have to remind myself not to scream along with the
crowd. I’m much to distracted by my amazing oppas to notice the group of
staring boys collecting around me. But Unni makes me realize it when she wraps
her arm around my shoulders and pulls me closer. Looking over my shoulder I see
not only BTS but also Got7 obviously gawking at me with no shame.
“That love potion of yours’ must be
strong tonight,” Unni whispers in my ear.
“Just don’t look at them, maybe
they will go away,” I whisper back, urging her to look forward.
“Trust me, I’ve heard them talking,”
A manly voice whispers in my other ear, “they will not be going away anytime
soon of their own free will.” Unni and I both snap our heads to see Junhoe
smiling down at both of us. “Noona, you got your make up fixed,” His face gets
closer to mine so I can hear him over the music. “But they smudged it a
little,” He reaches out and rubs away the smudge on my temple and smiles
cutely. “All better.”
“Junhoe-ah,” Jinhwan comes up and
swats Junhoe’s hand away from my face, “You can’t just touch the princess like
that.” The oldest scolds cutely.
“I see you have a fan club!” Bobby
teases as he joins us, gesturing to the growing group of boys, now adding a few
of Seventeen’s members and I fear the rest will soon join.
“Can you make them go away?” I ask,
more like plead, not want my oppas to come back to a group of boys gawking.
“Don’t worry about them, the minute
the hyungs walk off stage they will scatter.” As he says that the song is over
and my oppas quickly come off stage with big grins plastered on their sweaty
but still handsome faces. I start clapping and smiling like an idiot when they
reach me; trying to forget the boys, who like Bobby said, scattered but didn’t
With an ear to ear grin GD asks,
“How was it?”
“It was absolutely amazing! I have
never been so happy!” I say happily, earning another forehead kiss from GD.
“I’m so happy our princess enjoyed
the show,” His eyes shift to Ikon who has collected next to me. “And with your
knights.” He teases the boys. They all take a step away from me, not enjoying
the death glares they are receiving from Top, especially B.I.
“I may not mind this knight thing,”
Youngbae steps up and places a hand on B.I’s shoulder, holding it tightly.
“They can watch our little princess when we’re on stage, keeping all the other
boys at bay,” His eyes scan back stage, stopping on each boy group that had
been staring at me with interest.
“Leave the boys alone,” Unni
scolds, taking Youngbae’s hand away from poor B.I. “We need to go talk about a
few things,” She looks at me, “You can stay here with your knights.” My oppas
glare at her while Ikon smiles like idiots.
“Noona,” Top starts but Unni cuts
“It’s boring things Lottie has no
interest it, she can sit out here and have more fun.” With that, the
conversation is done and the boys are being dragged away by Unni, giving me
apologetic stares. I would be lying if I say that I’m not at least a little
comfortable with Ikon, most of them are younger than me so the lack of
formality and their friendliness does help.
“We finally get the princess to
ourselves!” Bobby yells happily, grinning like an idiot, making laugh. They
stare at me, “I think that’s the first time we’ve heard you laugh.”
“It’s not that rare of an
occurrence,” I smile at them.
“But I have a strong feeling that
us see you is going to be rare,” Jinhwan responds.
“Yea probably, but you have more of
a chance than those other boys since I spend most of my free time at YG.”
I’m surprised when Donghyuk speaks,
“I feel like you don’t get much free time.”
“And you would be right.” They all
frown, “But since we don’t have much time to talk before it’s your turn to go
on stage lets not talk about my shitty schedule.”
They smile at that. We talk and
talk for only twenty minutes but I feel completely at ease with them by the time
they have to go on stage.
“How do we look?” Chanwoo asks as
they all strike a pose together, earning a giggle from me. I try to not smile
as I give each of them a once over, feeling completely envious of their
perfectly ripped skinny jeans or tight leather pants. They are all wearing
their nice leather jackets, and I have to admit they all look really good.
“You guys look hot,” I tease them,
wanting to ruffle their hair but not wanting to mess up what stylist Unnies
must have worked hard on. Most try not to blush except for Bobby and Junhoe who
grin like the cocky guys that they are. They all quickly rush out on stage to
begin dumb and dumber, one of my favorite songs.
I didn’t think about what would
happen when they would leave me alone, I especially did not think sweet Lay
from EXO would bump into me, almost knocking me on the ground. But thankfully,
he catches me, wrapping his arms around me.
“Oh my god, I’m so sorry!” His
sweet sounding voice apologizes again and again. I’m far too dazed to make him stop
and until his frown seems to deepen at my lack of response. “Are you okay?”
It takes me another minute to
respond, “Yea, sorry, I’m okay thank you.”
“No, no, no, it’s my fault, I’m
sorry,” He starts again with apologizes.
“Lay-ssi, it is completely fine.” I
say sternly to stop his worrying.
He seems surprised at the sound of
his name, “I’m sorry but do I know you?”
I shake my head awkwardly, “No, I’m
actually a fan of yours.”
His eyes light up, “Really? Well
I’m so luck to have such a pretty fan.” I blush at his words., as another
thought occurs to me. I begin glancing around for the rest of EXO, not wanting
to see them. Even though Xiumin is my bias I kind of fear EXO as a whole, not
that I’m afraid of them, just that I will get so nervous and weird and say the
wrong thing I would like to avoid them. Lay has always one I would like to talk
to, not that he isn’t as attractive as the others or didn’t affect me ask much
as them, his atmosphere is just much more relaxed and welcoming. “Is something
I shake my head again.
Another smile graces his handsome
face, “I feel bad not knowing your name.”
“Charlie,” He tests the name out on
“Princess,” Bobby calls as they
walk off the stage to Lay and I.
I quickly get myself out of Lay’s
embrace before clapping for them, “You guys are great! I have always wanted to
see you live!” I giggle gleefully.
“Why thank you my lady,” Yoonhyung
says with a bow.
“I see you made more friends,” B.I
says with a smile and a bow at Lay.
“You already have lots of friends,
I see,” Lay smiles affectionately at me.
I grin and dramatically brush my
hair out of my face, “What can I say, I’m a popular person. I mean I may not be
on your guys level yet, there aren’t any fan clubs or posters but I’m pretty
“I don’t know about the no fan club
thing, you will probably have one by the end of the night if you keep bumping
into people,” Jinhwan comes to stand next to me. He bows to Lay, “Hello
Sunbaenim, where are your other member?”
“They should be coming around the
corner any second.”
“Really?” I ask neverously.
Lay seems a bit taken back by my
not so happy response, “I thought you were a fan?”
“I am I just-“ I’m cut off by
someone yelling for Lay.
Adrien is the worst gift giver in the world. He has all this money and no idea what anyone wants or needs. Whenever a gift is needed he pretty much has to beg at Chloe’s feet to help him get something good.
But it’s not really Adrien’s fault, the only examples he has in his life is one (1) birthday pen from his dad every year, two (2) mixtapes from Nino, and a genuinely nice scarf from “Gabriel Agreste”.
