i feel so proud to be her fan

I’m so proud of Disney’s Team of Researchers when it came to making Moana, because it made me, a proud Polynesian girl feel relatable to a Disney character. Now Polynesia consist of many islands, each with their own unique style. I thought it would be nice to share some of the elements used in Moana from my own Polynesian culture, the Maori culture, so that Moana fans can understand the significance or just something new. 

Te Fiti’s Heart

This Spiral Pattern is known as a ‘Koru’ and can be found in many types of Maori Art including: Carvings, Jewellery, Tattoos and Paintings. It is inspired by a plant native to New Zealand known as ‘Ponga’ or ‘The Silver Fern’.

Her Heart is also inspired by a rock precious to our people called ‘Pounamu’ or ‘Green stone’ which is a variant of Jade. We use it mainly for Jewellery nowadays but it was also used to make weapons back in the day. 

Hongi

A Hongi is a traditional greeting and farewell used by Maori people by pressing noses. It symbolises exchanging the breath of life to one another.

Moana uses the Hongi several times in the movie but her Hongi with Te Fiti seems like the most important and special to me. 

Moana’s Necklace

Moana’s Necklace is made out of a Abalone Shell which we call ‘Paua’ and can be found throughout many countries around the world, however the featured shell here is a type you find in New Zealand  once you polish back its nacre. The shell is used in our arts including: Carvings and Jewellery.

There are so many more elements used in this movie from the other Polynesian Islands that I cannot name but hopefully someone else can add to this post to share our beautiful and rich cultures. 

In regards to Baby Jones' arrival..

Whilst we’re all very excited that baby jones has arrived, we must remember that it is not okay for people to make fan accounts or post fanfiction including her in the story. It is not okay for you to do anything along these lines as she is a baby, whose parents, whilst famous, have not given permission for fans to use her in any way, and we are not at liberty to do so unless they give us permission, if they ever do (which I highly doubt will happen, and personally I would feel uncomfortable using a child in any works if I were to create them). So do not include her in any fan works, do not make fan accounts, just appreciate the pictures and tweets we get from the proud parents and be happy and excited for the growing family!!

Here's to BTS.

Here’s to Rap Monster, who has dreamed of this moment since his debut. Who used to perform as an underground artist as a student and who led his group so well despite his young age, despite of his uncertainty and fear for the future. Who makes sure to always be there to talk to his members about their feelings and thoughts. Who gave up entering a good university for his passion for music and has spent nearly every night writing lyrics and making songs even till the early morning, even while waiting to go up on stage and even when they are on the plane flying to their next event. Who always writes such thoughtful tangents on loving ourselves, trusting our youth and our passion, forgiving ourselves, and appreciating everything that we have in this world. Who shows us every side to him even though he’s scared of the vulnerability. Who never forgets to thank those around him even if he does not know them personally. Who always thinks of us wherever he goes and who is always rooting for us in whatever we do. Truly without him, BTS would not be the BTS that they are today. And I really hope that he knows that; I hope that receiving this award was able to take all his stresses and heavy thoughts from his shoulders. And even more, I hope that he has learned to love himself- flaws and all- just as we love him. Thank you for always showering us with love and thoughtfulness even if we may not deserve it, thank you for never forgetting about us. I hope that you never doubt yourself and your pure heart. You are more than deserving of this award.

Here’s to Jin. Who has shown us that hardwork and self-confidence is everything. He was accepted into Konkuk university, which is a prestigious Seoul university, before entering Bighit. He got into the film department with absolutely NO special admissions. He studied hard with plans as to become an actor but when Bighit changed his career path, Jin practiced every single day to become the amazing performer that he is today. I think of how he called his vocal trainer at 4am to show her that he has improved and I get so proud. Here’s to the oldest member of the group. Who constantly showers his members and his fans with love. Who was the one that cooked for the members, borrowing food and tools from his own family when BTS could not afford to, who made sure that every member became comfortable in Seoul when they first arrived at BigHit. Who is unbelievably intelligent as well. Who is always there to make us laugh with his silly gags and jokes, who is always there to make us feel loved. You worked hard to improve, you worked hard to be where you are right now. You deserve this.

Here’s to Suga. Who learned what it meant to be an adult at such a young age. Who used to perform for audiences of two and not have enough money to even buy ramen. Who used to listen to people constantly tell him that he would ruin his family. Who came up to Bighit as a trainee to become a hip hop artist and still worked hard and did not falter when that goal changed; learning to dance and what it means to be an idol, studying and working part time, fighting with suicidal thoughts, depression, self-hatred, a broken shoulder, and more. Who spends countless of sleepless nights working on music and lyrics, even on the nights that they are on vacation or when they just come back from a performance. Who truly showed us that though the start may be humble, the end will be prosperous. Thank you for teaching us what it means to live with passion, thank you for always working hard even if you don’t need to. You may not believe it, but this award is real and you deserve it. You’ve achieved all of your goals now! You’ve worked hard to be where you are. Thank you for showing us that hardwork and determination will never, ever betray us.

Here’s to J-Hope. Who was a street dancer and came into Bighit planning to become a vocalist and dancer. Who, when everyone doubted his skills, practiced even harder to become the well-rounded artist that he is now. Who taught himself how to rap and how to write lyrics despite having little experience in that area and is now one of the main creators behind bts’s music. Who practices every night, working on his mixtape and working on his dance skills, because he loves to do so. Who shows us what it means to live with hope and who never fails to show us happiness even in the most difficult of times. I hope you know that we are aware of how thoughtful you are, I hope you know that our love for you is eternal, and I hope you know that you too are more than deserving for this reward. And I just hope that you know that your existence to us gives us strength, that you do not always have to put yourself behind a happy facade and force yourself to hide your true emotions. We know the wide range of thoughts that you have running in your head and we absolutely care for and love all of them.

Here’s to Jimin. Who was a diligent student that studied dance so passionately. Who spends nearly every night in the practice room because he thinks “who am I to be resting right now?” I think of how you cried when people doubted your skills and I hope you know that those people are completely wrong. Your voice is something that touches our hearts and moves us and your skill in dance never fails to amaze us. You belong on stage. Here’s to Jimin. Who also showers his members with such adoration and affection, who is always there to comfort them in the darkest of times. Thank you for showing us what it means to be a good friend and brother. Thank you for showing us what it means to be kind. I hope you know that we love you just the way you are and that it’s okay to rest and to make mistakes. Please don’t ever doubt yourself.

Here’s to Taehyung. Who had to get the help of the Bighit staff to convince his family to let him begin training. Who wanted to be a farmer so that he could help his grandmother in Daegu. Who has been so strong throughout this difficult and painful year. Who still performed passionately for us even when he lost one of the most important woman in his life. Who put up a joyful front for so long even though he was actually in so much pain. Who constantly shows us new sides to his personality. Who constantly works hard in all that he does. Thank you for never failing to put a smile on our faces even when you were going through such a low point and thank you for teaching us what it means to be a filial child. Thank you for loving bangtan just as much as we do and thank you for always being so kind and bright. You share so much with us even when we aren’t deserving of it, Your stage presence and skill never fails to amaze me as well. We will remember your grandmother and we will always thank her for her blessings. You are more than deserving of this award. We know how wide the spectrum of your thoughts are and we know how intelligent you are- no matter what type of expression you might have on your face, your existence is always one that we will love.

Here’s to Jungkook. Who started training at such a young age, who was so shy and insecure about himself. Who left his family in Busan to come up to Seoul when he was just 14 years old. Who sacrificed the chance of making so many important memories for his dream, who sacrificed his youth for us. You gave up so many childhood memories- school romances, field days, school friends- to be on stage. Thank you. I think of how you cry when you think of the hardships that his members are going through and I thank you for trusting your brothers and your future, you deserve all the love in this world but please realize that you, also, have been through so many difficult times and have dealt with hardships. It’s okay to not be strong all the time. Thank you for showing us your growth and your endurance and passion. Thank you for showering us with love in so many ways  (whether it be through your detailed song covers or your concert ments), thank you for becoming the person that you are today. Please know that even when your thoughts are cluttered and messy, we are always here to support you and love you. You are more than deserving of this award, thank you for sharing your youth with us.

Lastly, here’s to BTS. This whole entire post of mine is incredibly cheesy but they really do mean a lot to me. Not only do they brighten my every day with their humor and antics but they each have taught me so many things and they constantly inspire me in all that they do. They have taught me to dream, to be diligent, to be loving, to be humble, and to trust my future. More importantly, they have taught me what it means to be young. So here’s to BTS and their first daesang. You deserve it more than anybody in this world and you each are deserving of all the love in this universe. Thank you for showing us that we never are alone and thank you for understanding us and showing us what it means to achieve your dreams and to live with passion. We hear your voice.

Here’s to the first of many more :)

can i just talk about chyler leigh for a second?

this is a woman who’s struggled through life to get where she is. she grew up in an broken household with an abusive family. she battled addiction and came out the other side. she’s fought to change her life and she’s made a beautiful family with an amazing husband. she’s a mother of three, with two of her children on the autism spectrum, she’s endlessly proud of her children and in her interviews you can see how much she truly loves them.

even though she’s busy, making this absolutely amazing career for herself- she’s got so much time for us. this woman reads our letters to her and responds with love and warmth and joy, she empathises with us and roots for us and loves her fans. she calls us her friends and makes sure that we feel important every single day. she’s so supportive of the LGBT community and acknowledges the importance of alex’s storyline, she takes this role and the real life implications of her character seriously and is so proud to be impacting on our lives so positively. this isn’t even mention her incredible talent- but you only need to watch her to see that.

she’s my inspiration every single day and i’m so glad i discovered her because she brings me (and so many others) so much joy. 

🌙Introduction

Hi I made this studyblr 2 days ago so I thought now would be a good time for a proper introduction. When I had first heard about studyblr I didn’t think much of it but I really got into it when I started bullet journaling. I had heard of bullet journaling and I had seen a few videos but I didn’t think it was for me until my friend started bullet journaling in January which really made me want to start. She ordered me a journal and so far I’m having so much fun with it. I just I got my first C on a report card which was very upsetting and really showed that I didn’t to spend more time on school. The studyblr community has really helped to motivate me to do better in school and to overall improve my study habits and everyone seems super nice!

So.. Eric is getting married! for real?!! ..
I just opened my PC on the easter holiday to find out about the news .. I just .. I guess many of us need some time to digest the news ..
so Eric was dating her for three years! so the rumors back then were right!.. but both denied it .. now when the news broke out again with evidence ,photos, Eric confirmed the relationship .. followed by a marriage announcement..  He always said that he’d hide any relationship unless he was taking it to marriage… and he finally is.

I’ve been following Shinhwa since 2004.. it’s a long journey.. & such significant change in Shinhwa is just.. overwhelming! .. like my babies are finally getting married! it’s ..a weird mixed feeling, a proud mother, a worried fan,.. it’s really a bunch of mixed feelings.. but anyway, Eric has been doing a lot for Shinhwa as an awesome leader & member .. He deserves happiness .. & he wanted to be the first to get married so here we go …

But can you girls imagine it?!! our leader is finally having his own family!! & soon having his own kids! Shinhwa Juniors! woah!! ..  Just imaging that Eric is getting married & all the members are around him in suits, but this time Shinhwa aren’t guests in someone’s marriage.. it’s their OWN marriage! .. woah!! waiting to see the funny stuff ShinDorks are gonna do & say on Eric’s wedding :)
p.s., hopefully the MCs now will stop asking that forever annoying question to Shinhwa ..

I really wish him a happy married life .. & I wish the other members will follow in his footsteps soon .. it’s okay for me that they do whatever they want in their private life .. as long as Shinhwa goes on .. Shinhwa is forever. Right, Eric? .. “Even if they’re married.. even if they’ve kids.. Shinhwa will go on”. I need to hear more of this confirmation plz .. & Eric just gave it in his announcement.
“and I promise to work harder with a settled mind for all the love you gave.”
He’s the man of his words. So my heart feels more secure now ..

Congratulations Eric .. you deserve happiness .. but please keep the child in you alive! be forever our kid leader. it’s an amazing virtue * & I hope u getting married doesn’t mean u need to act “mature”! .. just be the way you are.
love you Eric. My ultimate bias who’s been conquering my heart for 13 years is finally getting married. 

the late late show


As James started to sing the lyrics of Scrubs I looked over at (Y/N) as she sat in the front row, with a smirk plastered on my face. It was one of her favourite songs and I had mentioned that to James before the show. (Y/N’s) jaw dropped a little as we both began to sing. She was a huge fan of James and the show, and knowing that whilst singing one of her favourite songs filled me with an overwhelming feeling of excitement.

I knew how nervous she had been about the show, so I had asked James if there was anyway we could do something to help her nerves and make her feel welcome before our interview - that’s when he suggested featuring Scrubs in our Riff-Off. Once it was over and it went to commercials I ran over, crouching in front of her.

“That was one of the best things I’ve ever witnessed,” she smiled, the nerves completely vanished. “I’m glad baby,” I said as I kissed the top of her head. The producer hurried over and began setting her up with a mic, and suddenly her smile vanished. “You’ll be fine, James is lovely you know that” I said rubbing my hand on her knee. “I know, it’s just, I don’t belong on TV. I should be watching TV, not making a fool of myself on TV for everyone else to watch” she sighed. I shook my head, “I’ll be right there with you,” I reminded her. She nodded and the producer told her we have two minutes until the commercials ended. She stood up and took a deep breath before I took her hand and lead her to the sofa on the stage. “It’s scary, seeing everyone’s eyes on you” she whispered as we sat opposite the audience. “I know it’s nothing compared to your concerts, but it’s daunting” she added. I put my arm round her and rubbed her shoulder, “You’re going to be great.”

“I’m right in saying that you two met when (Y/N) was working with one of your make-up artists Shawn?” We both nodded. “So you’re the reason this boy looks perfect all the time?” James asked looking at (Y/N). “I wish that were true, but he was blessed with amazing genes” she laughed nervously.

“Now (Y/N), you also do special effects makeup, why don’t you tell us what that involves” James said as he leaned on the corner of the desk. I looked at (Y/N) who looked at ease as she spoke about her passion. She was in her element. “It involves fake blood, wax, wigs, nights of horrific google searches,” she laughed along with the audience.

“And you’ve used Shawn as a model, I think we have a couple of photos here” James said. (Y/N) and I looked at the monitor and saw a photo that (Y/N) had posted on instagram. It was of me sitting on a stool in our kitchen, with half of my face looking like it had been ripped off. “I do not mean this in a rude way at all, but that is quite disgusting,” James chuckled. “It means that you’re amazing though, if it manages to look that realistic and gross.” (Y/N’s) cheeks turned pink as she thanked James.

“Tell us about this photo Shawn,” James said. Once again we glanced at the monitor and laughed as soon as we saw the photo. “This wasn’t makeup at all, this is 100% real,” I laughed. “I still caused him to look like that though,” (Y/N) added. “She’s right. I was due to come home from a short trip round Europe in a week, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I got to finish a few days early. Anyway,” I laughed. “Shawn wanted to surprise me, so I had no idea about this. He surprised me, but I’d say it was more like he nearly killed me” (Y/N) added. “Yeah, she has never screamed so loud before. Our neighbours hurried round once they heard” I smiled as James chuckled. “It ended up with me being whacked in the face with her fist, and keep in mind she wears two rings on that hand” I said. (Y/N) covered her mouth with her hand, shaking her head. “But you didn’t do any serious harm, you’re still gorgeous Shawn” James stated.

A couple of minutes before the interview was over, James got all serious and asked (Y/N): “When you look at everything Shawn has achieved, what he does day-to-day and what he’s going to be doing…How proud do you feel?” I looked at (Y/N), intrigued to know her answer as she had never been in a situation where she had to talk about something like this. “Immensely. I know it’s kind of a rollercoaster for Shawn, which just keeps going up and he faces surreal experiences all the time. But I find myself having to pinch my arm every now and again to believe the kind of life he has. He deserves it so much, he is one of the most genuine, down to earth guys. I’m not being biased,” she paused to laugh.

“But yeah, I’m always proud of him and I say that also because I witness behind the scenes. I see all the preparation that goes into one show, I know how long he has to travel to get to one venue. I experience the lonely nights with and without him. He goes above and beyond, and I am just so appreciative of his fans because they know that and they love him for it.” I pulled her in for a side hug and kissed her temple, feeling like I was falling in love with her all over again.

the whole event tonight was incredibly emotional, incredibly brave, incredibly sensational and so, so incredibly powerful and i tip my hat to Ariana Grande for putting this whole thing together in under a week - a week that i imagine was heartbreaking for her and tough to get through. i hope this is spoken about in years to come because what she did tonight, and what happened over the last few hours, was, honest to god, one of the most beautiful things to ever come out of Britain. 

she should feel incredibly proud of herself. she did her fans, every single one of them, dead and alive, so incredibly proud. and i hope she knows that. she did it for them and they would have loved every single second of that - and i hope they were jamming out up there, all together, having the time of their lives.

my heart and my love and my prayers and my thoughts goes out to every single one that this benefitted; the families, the friends, the partners, etc. we won’t let the terror in this world affect us. we unite together in times of fear and we fight back with love because that’s what we do best. xx

Twice Reaction To Realizing They Like Girls


Mina: She would feel lost and a little scared at first cause it’s a totally new “world” for her. She wouldn’t really know how to react over it and would feel a little weird over girls for quite some time.

Originally posted by nayeoh


Momo: I think she would be a little confused. But she wouldn’t care with the hate at all. She wouldn’t be someone that she’s not just to make some people happy.

Originally posted by 0ncelovestwice


Dahyun: She would be happy that she discovered herself. She would feel more free and liking girls would explain a lot of things that ran through her mind. She would be really proud of herself for it.

Originally posted by kimnatozaki


Jungyeon: I think she would try to deal with it cause there’s no way she can deny it. So she would think a lot about telling people she would think about the backlash and how that could affect her idol career.

Originally posted by jeongyeon


Tzuyu: She would be reaaally shocked at first. She would try to convince herself otherwise and would fail. Then after that she would start to accept that she can’t change it and accepting herself would be a really slow process.

Originally posted by girl-groups


Chaeyoung: I don’t think she would have a problem with it. She would embrace herself and would feel good and would be really proud that she finally discovered who she really is.

Originally posted by kyuteu-k


Sana: I think she would accept it pretty well but she would be kind of afraid of the fans or the members don’t accept it. She would probably hide herself from her members for a long time.

Originally posted by misamo


Jihyo: I think that she would be afraid that the fans and the midia have a negative reaction. So she would think twice before coming out or something. But apart from that I think she would be glad that she finally realized it.

Originally posted by 9477


Nayeon: She would be really scared of all the hate she could get for that. She would think through it and would try to accept it cause it’s who she is and she can’t run from it even if she’s scared of the hate.

Stop Hating on Brallie

Firstly Brandon and Callie had an immediate connection, and had a feeling that they could trust each other immediately. Not everyone believes in love at first sight, and this is a different way to explain it. An instant connection. It was completely obvious the more they started talking to each other, and trusting each other they, the more you could see that they like each other romantically.

Yes they were foster siblings, and they knew it was wrong, but who gets to choose who you fall in love with? You don’t get to choose, and it’s never easy when it’s real love.

They both tried pretty hard to conceal their feelings for each other, but gave in before it was too late. Moms asked Callie if she wanted to get adopted, but she has feelings for Brandon. She wanted to know how far her relationship with Brandon could’ve gone, so she kissed him afterwards. They trust each other completely. (A major component in a healthy relationship) Brandon taught Callie how to trust other people, after she trust him.

They snuck around and continued dating until she realized she needs a family. She didn’t break up with Brandon because she didn’t love him, she just couldn’t live on her own. It hurt Callie and Brandon pretty badly when they broke up. They truly love each other, and they couldn’t be together, not because they didn’t want to, but because it’s not what she needed at the time.

Then he moved in with his dad, to try to move on from Callie, to benefit the family, but it didn’t work, they are still in love with each other, and when Robert didn’t want to resign the papers, she thought she was not getting adopted, and thought she was giving up Brandon for no reason. It’s not that she loves the family more than him, it’s that she’s afraid she’ll lose the family if she gives in to her feelings for Brandon, but she did, and she kissed him, again. Brandon respectfully walked away so Callie didn’t give up on getting adopted. He knew that she might regret it later (which she didn’t), so he stopped it so she can get adopted, even though he loves her. He thought that she only comes to him when things are going wrong with her, and that’s true to an extent.

Yes, she goes to Brandon when she’s vulnerable. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t love him. It also means that he’s her support for anything. He didn’t want to get heartbroken again so he told her it was over (which it wasn’t). She was heartbroken, she would’ve chose Brandon if he told her that he wanted to.

So the whole time between 2x12 to 3x09 Callie thought that Brandon didn’t want to be with her, so she continued fighting for the adoption. Brandon just needed to tell her he loves her, and she would’ve choose him, but he is selfless, and decided to continue helping her get a family.

They continued seeing other people, and fight for the adoption until they thought it was all over. They thought Carmen was going to reveal their whole relationship, and if she didn’t they were sure that Rita would, so they gave into all of their feelings and slept together. They put a lot of love and passion into it. It showed how much they truly mean to each other.

They came home from Idyllwild as a couple and planned to tell moms the whole truth, but to be shut down by finding out she can be adopted.

Daphne told Callie to go for what she wants, then Callie goes into Brandon’s room confessing her love for him, and almost choose him. “What if I call Robert? Maybe-” The a door slammed to interrupt them. They were so close to choosing each other, but then they saw how happy the family was, and they both couldn’t ruin that.

(Brandon and Callie are the two most selfless characters in the show.)

She decided to get adopted, and they tried to shut down their feelings.

It failed. They still love each other after the adoption. I mean they were forced to shut off their feelings to keep their family happy, of course it wouldn’t work. They were forced to try to move on, but like Brandon said “What we feel only happens once in a lifetime”, they won’t love anyone like they love each other.

Brandon and callie are soulmates, forced to be siblings.

Incest is illegal mainly because if a child is conceived it can have deformities, this obviously doesn’t apply to adoptive siblings.

Morally they wouldn’t be wrong, they are ex lovers. Soulmates, forced apart by parents and their selflessness. Also it’s not illegal for them to date in California.

You can say it’s gross, but it’s not. They will never see each other as true siblings, unlike Callie-Jesus Callie-Mariana Jude-Callie Jude-Mariana Jude-Jesus Jude-Brandon Jesus-Mariana Jesus-Brandon Mariana-Brandon. Would you be able to see an ex that you’re in love with as a brother or sister, no, so why do you expect Callie and Brandon to?

You can say “DNA doesn’t make family, love does.” And this is true, but nowhere says what a family should look like. Anyone you love could be your family, a friend, a lover or siblings could be classified as family. This show proves there are no structure for a family. The stereotypical family is a mom, dad and few kids.This show features Two Moms, a mixed of Biological and Adoptive children, but why can’t a family included lovers, soulmates. It includes Stef and Lena, but Brandon and Callie could be included as lovers, and everyone could still see each other as family.

Also “A piece of paper doesn’t make family”. For the whole time Callie wasn’t adopted she still saw Jesus and Mariana as siblings, and Moms as her moms, and Brandon as the guys she’s in love with, and the adoption didn’t change any of those feelings. They could find ways in the future where Callie and Brandon are together, and Callie is still part of the Adams Foster family.

Callie and AJ are unhealthy. He doesn’t respect her decisions to help people, and yes it may get overboard, but he doesn’t take interest in it. Also she barely knew his interests such as carpentry and other interests. They don’t truly know each other as well as Brandon and Callie know each other. AJ and Callie are mostly physical than emotional, and I do believe she does love AJ, just not the way she loves Brandon.

The writer won’t just make Brandon and Callie soulmates (which they basically confirmed in many interviews), and not put them together.

Brallie is endgame. They’re not gross or incest and they completely support The Fosters theme.

The theme is family, love, acceptance and equality.

All love is equal, no matter what age you are, if you found a true love, and you know it, don’t let other people tell you otherwise. Teenage Love is no different from finding love as an adult, you just found it earlier. Just because Brandon and Callie fell for each other when they weren’t supposed to, doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. Stef’s dad didn’t approve of Stef and Lena being together, and she fought and all the fans are proud of her, and when Brandon and Callie fight for their relationship, they get hate. And the theme is all love is equal, and if you don’t believe Callie and Brandon truly love each other, but believe the themes of the show, then you’re hypocritical.

This show is also about acceptance. And I believe one day everyone in the family will accept Brallie, and it will continue supporting the theme of the show.

Brandon and Callie are currently forbidden, so they have to show their feelings through eye contact, body gestures, facial expressions and etc. Most people don’t pay attention, and don’t understand the love signals they give each other emotionally, not verbally.

People should actually give Brallie a chance, and I bet everyone will stop hating on them less when they are accepted by moms, and allowed to be together, and seen as a couple. Not as “siblings” as they are forced to be seen.

They are only human, do you expect humans to be able to put off true emotions for so long? No. They aren’t sociopaths, so at least try to pay attention.

They’re not incest or gross, they support The Fosters theme and they truly love each other, and if you don’t ship them, then sorry. It’s painful to ship them, and you have to be really patient, but if you do ship, when they become canon then the payoff will be so fulfilling. And if you don’t ship them, then sorry that you’ll miss out on the fulfillment, but I do believe Brallie is endgame.

You don’t have to ship it, just don’t call them “incest” or “gross’’. No need for hate, you can just say you don’t prefer them and be respectful about it.

The end.

I’ve been thinking about this, but I’ve seen a lot of people over the last few months upset about Koogi’s Q&A and I thought I’d give my two cents briefly.  It all boils down to one simple thing:  PR is not the same as storytelling.  What Koogi says in her interviews is interesting, and I enjoyed reading about the work she’s put in, but in the end, all that really matters to the story is, well, the story.  [The rest is under the readmore]

I feel like my love for Touka-chan is growing stronger every single day? she wasn’t my favorite character in the past… I mean, yeah she kinda was, but I had others that I loved the most like Eto or Tsukiyama, but I feel like right now she has become that female character that I adore in terms of “I think she’s now my second female character in tg” and all because of the development? seriously, god bless development… thanks to the development that I’m seeing in :re I’m just beyond surprised with her character and I just feel so intimidated by her words and her vision of life and how wise she has become? I don’t even dare to contradict her 😂  and I just love her because I feel like she’s such a human character… people like Eto or Furuta are characters that you won’t really find in real life that easily? but Touka is a very relatable person, doing normal stuff like running a coffee shop and being lonely and having human dreams/aspirations like everyone else, when I read about her character and I see everything she’s doing I’m like “wow, yeah girl… I feel you”, and I think that’s amazing. Besides she’s so aesthetically beautiful? that’s so stupid but it’s nice to have a character that is good looking lmao, especially in fan arts and everything, her colors are so distinctive, I see light blue/purple and I see Touka. I just think she’s such a great character and I’m so proud of her *hugs Ishida*

02x07

so i’ve just finished rewatching the episode after sleeping for like maybe 3 hours
i still have very mixed feelings about this episode because it was full of amazing moments that i loved a lot, it was also horrible in very moments and i am still bitter about this but i tried to limit my complaining at this point… i’ve been ranting for like 3 or 4 hours on tumblr with people and i’m just so tired about this

- alec complaining about the name of the sushi was so adorable
i love matt and harry for including this little interaction between alec and magnus. malec is so domestic

- magnus looked so surprised when alec bought him a present. it actually broke my heart. i’ve been suspecting nobody really cared enough to buy him anything for too long. magnus deserves everything that is good in this world and i am so happy that he found alec who is making effort and fighting for their relationship

- ‘you continue to surprise me’ is such a lovely parallel to the scene from 01x12. magnus is genuinly surprised that someone is doing so much just for him (oh is that my heart in pieces again)

- magnus casually name dropping casanova gave me life. alec’s reaction was adorable ‘seriously magnus… i’m trying here don’t be like this let me live’ haha

- malec’s makeout session on the balcony was just so casual and so soft and i am in love with this (and i am not gonna complain again about the fact that they cut out SO MUCH from this scene ugh)
and when alec gets a message, magnus is touching his lips… again. it’s like he can still taste alec’s lips on his own. it’s like he just wants to remind himself that yes, it is actually happening
and when alec is leaving, magnus looks so smitten? he’s already falling so hard for alec. it’s beautiful

- magnus and maia interacting together were the highlight of this episode. i didn’t know much i wanted to see them together. they were absolutely perfect
magnus telling her that he got a gift and that yes, it was from someone special
this scene was just so pure

  - magnus was such a badass when he was throwing out that rufus guy. we finally got a chance to see him actually being a high warlock of brooklyn and it was amazing

- i loved magnus speaking spanish to izzy

- magnus was trying to save isabelle, to help her and warn her. and she just used him like that… this is so not izzy?

- the scene where alec is talking about sex with izzy was one of the best scenes. she was so excited for him. and i love that alec finally felt sure enough to discuss his personal life with someone

- also… a fake girlfriend only proves how gay alec actually is. i love my gay son

- alec is so thirsty af, just going for it, grabbing magnus’ face to kiss him. he’s finally going for what he’s always wanted and it was beautiful

- magnus feeling so vulnerable and trying to stop alec
magnus’ feelings are important and he should’ve got a chance to talk about them. to say that he was okay with this because he was really worried about this
alec means so much to him and he’s scared to rush things, losing alec would be too heart-breaking for him
and i absolutely hate that he didn’t get a chance to say 'yes’ out loud. if alec being ready made him change his mind, it’d be absolutely okay. but they didn’t allow him to say this. kissing back doesn’t always means 'yes’. i’m still very bitter about this
and alec would never do anything against magnus’ will. their relationship is based on trust and communication. they deserved better than this

- and yes, i am still very bitter that they showed us literally nothing
magnus and alec decided to take a very important step in their relationship and it should’ve been shown with respect
but no, showing two men together is just too gay, isn’t it
because clearly they don’t have problems with showing up scenes before or after sex (like jace’s random hook-up or izzy with meliorn in s1)

- jace seriously needs to stop cockblocking alec, this is getting ridiculous

- the amount of unnecessary heterostraight drama in this episode was just… wow
why did we need that makeout session with some random girl that lasted for SO LONG when the only canon couple was barely shown? what was the point again?
yes, we needed to see the scene where alec is talking to jace (and the girl could be leaving at that moment) but everything else was literally taking screentime and adding more heterostraight bullshit that we have enough of
yes, we totally we needed to see her boobs more than an actual couple that decided to take a very important step in their relationship

- please don’t make jace this cocky dude again… cause i literally couldn’t care less about that version of jace in s1. he’s so much better than this

- jace loves clary so much… as soon as he thinks she’s in trouble, he leaves everything. caring jace is why i liked him later, this is the real jace. not that cocky idiot who pretends he doesn’t care about anything

- also, jimon was on a date. yes, fight me on this bye

- simon trying to show jace how he flirts… simon is the most precious bean and he needs to be protected

- simon is such a good guy. he’s always ready to give up on his plans for clary. but it’s good that he was trying to finally move on, even if that didn’t exactly work out

- simon and maia were so cute and adorable. i really love their interactions together
when she helped him clean the blood, this was such a lovely moment between them

- ‘i spit in one’ the sass master. her whole interaction with jace was just the best. she doesn’t let him feel superior to her. good.

- maia is the smartest woman ever and i love her with all my heart. i’m glad she let simon know that he was acting like an idiot and that she didn’t deserve to be treated like this
but she handled the situation with him in such a great way. she wasn’t angry, she always knew anyway. maia is an amazing friend and she gives the best advice to people who actually deserve any of her time

- i’m so worried about izzy. her scenes are breaking my heart, she doesn’t deserve this plot line. it’s just so hard to look at her shaking because she didn’t have yin fen for a while

- and the way she got angry with clary… sure, maybe clary should’ve told her. but this is all because of yin fen. izzy would never act like this before

- and going through victor’s office just to find more of it… this is really bad

- izzy trying to score… seriously, this plot line… izzy deserves better. i’m gonna keep repeating it until someone finally realises this and stops doing this to her

- and while i’m at it…
LUKE DESERVES BETTER TOO
when he listed all the names he was called by his own sister… and then she just came to him, trying to betray him yet again? i can’t even imagine how he must’ve felt

- when valentine called luke parabatai… i was actually in tears. the pain on luke’s face… he really loved valentine in the past, considered him his brother and valentine betrayed him in the most horrible way. and now he’s using that word just to hurt him more… i hate valentine so much

- valentines pretends he wants to 'help the world to be safe again’. but really… it’s all about power for him, nothing else

- clary’s reaction to simon’s abs… yep, i feel ya girl same
although it kinda sucks that she finally saw him as a guy and not her best friend only after this… oh well

- i like that clary and alec are slooowly becoming friends, they could work really great as buddies

- i was actually very impressed that clary didn’t let cleophas manipulate her. and luke was also so impressed. he is such a proud father and i love him

- i can’t believe clary tased luke just to get her way… this is seriously clary from s1 and i wasn’t a big fan of that clary
yeah, it might’ve all worked out but she shouldn’t always do what she wants just because she thinks it’s right

- but i did love badass clary on the roof. she is really becoming a great shadowhunter and in that moment, i was very proud of her

- the plot with an angel was VERY intersting. i was waiting for it to happen. it broke my heart when valentine kept him captive
but him helping clary and actually stopping the whole thing was played out really great

- the way he communicated with clary and he just knew clary would do everything to help him. that’s why he showed her that vision. even if neither she nor jace understood it yet


- seeing and hearing the angel cry for help… this was so sad and moving. a real angel, treated so horribly by a person who was supposed to love him. valentine is such an evil person

anonymous asked:

My heart breaks for harry. A girl from Holmes Chapel is in intensive care. Another is missing. He's thousands of miles away from his family, Anne tweeted about wanting to hug her children, and he probably feels pretty helpless. The strength he displayed going out on that stage to do that handful of songs with his band is immense and I'm incredibly proud. Any of the fans there complaining better stop because they saw their favourite artist and they made it home. 22 people in Manchester didn't.

it quite literally hits close to home for him. he’s so brave.

bambamisnotbig  asked:

I don't know if requests are open or maybe you have a lot of work to do but when you get the time could you possibly write a Shownu smut? It can be anything because honestly all your writing is gold. Also I love ambw stories, so if you do write it can it be ambw? Thanks a lot and I'm not rushing you or anything, take your time! Thanks and keep up the great work!<3

Sorry it’s so late~:

Your favorite fan:

You sat on the couch, legs crossed as you wiggled side from side. Your outfit was a simple yet sexy one that you knew would drive him mad. From head to toe, your hair was long flowing down your back, it was straightened resting against your skin, your upper half was decked out with a shirt that had ‘Shownu’ on the front and the last two years on the back representing his birth year. The shirt was white with black lettering because you loved it when he got all cheesy and told you that you were a tall glass of milk. Your legs were covered in thigh high socks, they were white with black stripes running around the thigh band part. No panties were on, just a black strapless bra that could be un-clipped from the front, and a little push up because why the fuck not?

If and when you stood up, the shirt came down passed your ass, showing off the creases of your ass cheeks. You had been staying on the seat rocking side to side trying to listen to the beat of the song playing in your head. You smiled lazily as your lovers deep voice rang out through the speakers. You were so in love with him. It had been a good three months since you were official, but unknown to others but you and him, he was your best friend in his pre-debut days.

It was something about how goofy he was, yet charismatic when the time arose. And for you, he was a big help around your house. With your grades, with getting along with everyone while you were living in the place of Seoul. He was introducing you to a lot of things. And he was your first time as corny as that seemed you loved him, he loved you what was so wrong about it? Oddly enough the sex only happened as a result of play fighting when your body somehow ended up trapped under his and once you felt his hardness against your clothed pussy you couldn’t help but rut against him and he fucked it out of you as well. 

The door opened and you jumped up excitedly bouncing up and down singing all in to him trying to rap some parts as well. Your shirt moved but not that much, your hands clapping together as you welcomed home your tired boyfriend. All you could see was delight on his face, and despite the heavy black bag that was draped on his shoulder, he didn’t let that effect him grazing at you. His eyes roamed over your body hungrily, dropping down his black bag he made his way towards you. Gray shorts hanging low on his waist, black tank top showing off his arms. He had on a black snap back, his feet only covered with the socks because he had taken off his shoes at the door. 

He slowly made step by step towards you, his hands slowly sliding around your waist, under your ass so that he could lift you up by your legs looking eye level at you. “My baby girl is so precious when she sees her baby daddy huh?” He teased a crooked smirk on his lips, his dark eyes twinkling. 

“Well, I am your biggest fan you know? I have to be so happy whenever I see my baby daddy walking by. I need to show you that you were missed and I was so so so soooo proud of you!” Laughing you wiggled in his arms, clapping your hands on his chest. 

“So proud? Is that why you don’t have on shorts baby? I can feel you through this material, you’re fucking wet.” He laughed a husky laugh his breath fanning your face. 

“It’s just because.. I missed you.. It’s been three months I can’t help it that I get needy. I just want to feel you, but of course I want to know how your day has been.” Nodding eagerly you gave a bright smile showing your teeth, he was already carrying you down the hallway towards your shared bedroom. 

“Well, if you are such a great fan like you say, let me give you a reward for being such a thing.” He teased slamming you down on the bed playfully. He crawled in between your legs pressing them down between the bed, looking at your dripping core. “I’ve always loved the color of brown against pink.. Chocolate and.. Strawberry. Can Hyunwoo eat?” He asked softly leaning down blowing against your pussy.

His head dipped down taking darting licks against the length of your pussy, and without warning he dived his tongue deep into your entrance swirling it and shaking his head side to side quickly making use of his tongue. He slurped and pulled back to spit against your pussy slamming in two fingers curving them to stretch you back out, his fingers moving and scissoring you open. He watched you moan for him, the way your lips parted and begged for him to do more, your thighs quivering. 

He pulled out his fingers, going down to your clit sucking on it. He nipped it and licked on it, before pulling back to look down at you. “I’m sorry, I wish that I could eat you a bit longer but I’m rather needy.”

He pulled back to push down his shorts and boxers, revealing his hardened shaft for you to see it. He grabbed at your hips slamming himself deep inside of you. 

Once he established a pace of rocking and pounding in and out of you at a steady pace his hands wandered higher, slipping under your shirt, smirking as his eyebrows furrowed in concentration. He un-clipped your bra from the front grabbing at your plump breast slamming in and out of you. Slowly he let your orgasm build up, bed shaking, sheets dripping in sweat from your bodies. Toes curling, moans slipping from each others lips. He leaned down to kiss you, letting you taste yourself he sucked on your tongue slowly. The kiss was deep the kind that took your breath away.

He rolled and winded his hips, keeping his pace fast sliding his shaft in and out of your dripping walls over and over again. Your legs locked around his waist, hands tangling in his shirt as you pulled him to you. You tried to mumble that you were close and how you wanted him to slow down, prolong it. He didn’t listen though, he continued to rut his hips against yours, pinning your hips into the mattress. 

“Fuck Hyunwoo!” A loud cry left your lips as he brought you to an orgasm, his hand coming down to rub at your clit, his muscles clenching as he gave you his all. Sweat forming on his forehead, his shirt starting to become just as wet as the sheets. You cried under him letting him continue to abuse your pussy sounds of it sounding off the wall at how he treated you. In a few more thrust he was spilling his cum inside of you, pressing his weight down body flush on yours to make sure you took it all.

Once he was satisfied he pulled out of you slowly rolling over on his back, he pulled you on top to take off your sweater, laying you down on his chest. “Mm, I guess I love coming home to my favorite fan. And I’m yours as well.”

pick a side

author’s note: my first marco asensio imagine, as requested by anon! i hope you like it. feel free to let me know what you think :-)

Normally, it’s easy being a fan of Sporting and Real Madrid, because normally, the teams don’t play each other. Since she’s from Portugal, she has strong ties to Sporting – but since her boyfriend Marco plays for Real, obviously she supports him, too. But they’re not even in the same league, or the same country, so she’s never had to worry about picking a side.

Until today.

Today, Real Madrid has a Champions League match against Sporting, which means she has choose a side. (Marco has assured her that she can choose whichever team she wants and he’ll still love her. But she’s torn, honestly – is it possible to support both teams at the same time?)
