i got this idea in the middle of sleeping and started working on it at 3am

anonymous asked:

Holy shit I love your analysis' of Jimin and Namjoon!! Would you mind doing one for Jungkook as well? I know a lot of people were confused as to why Namjoon put him in Ravenclaw over Gryffindor/Slytherin.

Hello~

It’s really weird for me that you guys actually care about and value my opinions  on this whole business so thank you so much for giving my ramblings the time of day omg

for those who are wondering about my thoughts on gryffindor!namjoon and slytherin!jimin here’s the links to those:

Namjoon as a Gryffindor || Jimin as a Slytherin


So like, I really. really. really. love the idea of Ravenclaw Jeon. (But listen… I used to be a hardcore Slytherin!Jeon person okay, so I understand your feels on this. I do.) 

 here goes nothing

Ravenclaw Jungkook confused a lot of people. And I really get it because Ravenclaw was so fucking shafted in the books. 

We had so many Gryffindors and Slytherins to relate to, and we had a fair share of badass Hufflepuffs (TONKS) to base our opinions off of. But there were only a few Ravenclaws that were given the time of day in the books, and only one of those was a major character. We had Luna, Trelawney, Lockehart, and Cho. Cho’s amazing character was wasted by JK – she was written with the personality of a dish rag and didn’t really get the spotlight she deserved. Trelawney was presented as a crazy old lady who sometimes ?? served a purpose. Lockehart was an idiot. All we really had was Luna.

But it wasn’t just the characters. Ravenclaw has a really weird reputation. Before I wrote this, I asked a bunch of my casual and hardcore HP fan friends to tell me the characteristics they associated with each house. And I got pretty much what I expected:

  • Gryffindor: Leaders, brave, courageous, brash, strong
  • Slytherin: Cunning, resourceful, calculating, perfectionists
  • Hufflepuff: Loyal, kind, hard-working, determination, cheerful
  • Ravenclaw: Smart…?? they are… smart people?? They do things…….smartly……

Like for real. Whenever I asked people what traits they associated with Ravenclaw, all anyone was ever able to tell me was that Ravenclaws were supposedly smart. And that’s got a lot to do with the fact that when the sorting hat sings off about all the houses, it lists all these great traits for the other houses, but when it comes to Ravenclaw it says this:

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

And then the books go on to say that Ravenclaws are,

characterised by their wit, intelligence, and wisdom.

So maybe you’re like me, and I am REALLY guilty of this, but when I first read this in the books I kinda just thought these all meant the same thing. So maybe that’s where we got this idea that all Ravenclaws are good for are being smart.

But it wasn’t until I looked up the actual definition of each word that I realized these were all saying really different things:

Intelligence - the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.
Wit - a natural aptitude for using words and ideas in a quick and inventive way to create humor.
Wisdom - the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise.

^^^^this is just webster dictionary definitions here. The bolded words are the ones I want to focus on.

Skill. See – Ravenclaws are supposedly smart. But this doesn’t always have to mean BOOKSMART, and I think that’s where we had a lot of trouble with Jeon. No one is saying he is dumb or anything, but he’s no Namjoon.

Notable examples of this trait include Lockehart, who was pretty shitty at a lot of things, but had the street smarts enough to pass off his big whole scam for years and years, and was especially gifted in certain charms.

Then there’s Luna, who while shown to be really good at solving riddles, was also portrayed as really physically skilled. In Dumbledore’s Army, while being taught how to conjure a Patronus by Harry, Luna was the first to get it right. She was fourteen at the time, and was such a skilled witch that she was able to perform an incredibly difficult charm - that even adults had trouble with - after like…….mere minutes of teaching.

Does this sound like someone you know?? I’ll give you an example: Observe this VERY determined Hufflepuff not give up on his dreams and finally have all his hard work pay off… only for someone to come in and get it right almost instantly.

Or maybe… “Hey guys, this dance move you made up looks pretty cool – mind if I watch you do it like once and a half and then nail it instantly?”

And if you’re ever in doubt about just how skilled Jungkook is… remember that he turned down seven other agencies to join BigHit. That’s how many people were after him and recognized his talent. (This also ties in to my thoughts on the part about good judgement – Jungkook obviously saw a lot of potential in Namjoon and BigHit in general, so much so that he turned down tons of other companies to be there. He saw something a lot of other people did not… and it ended up being the best decision he ever made.)

But I think another really telling aspect of Jungkook’s Ravenclaw personality is that he isn’t always perfect at everything. He’s not always good at something right away – but that won’t stop him working really hard to get good

In Rookie King he was shown to be at the most pretty average at bowling. He wasn’t terrible, but he was about as good as you and I would be after playing a few rounds with a little luck. Well, Golden Maknae Jungkook could not stand to not be the best at something, so he mentions sometime later (13:10) that he’s hired a coach to teach him how to bowl…. and then just a few months later uploads a video of himself getting a strike like it’s no god damn big deal at all. And he looks pretty proud of himself too.

But all the major Ravenclaws were also shown time and time and time again as being a little…. scatterbrained. Luna, Lockehart, and Trelawney especially, and to an extent even Cho. And Jungkook is no exception. He’s… pretty gullible. And DEFINITELY scatterbrained.

But wit, intelligence, and wisdom are not the only three traits associated with Ravenclaw. There are a lot of other traits you may not really know about, because again – Ravenclaws were woefully under-represented in the series. There’s quite a few others listed for this house:

  • Creative
  • Individuality
  • Eccentric
  • Quirky
  • Jealousy/Envy
  • Competitive

So imma just go down the list because I’m really tired and I can’t made good word things rn

Creative

it’s no secret that Jungkook is a pretty talented artist. He’s a pretty damn good photographer too. (This will always be one of my favorite photos ever of Jimin – and Jungkook took it.) And he’s a talented lyricist as well. He’s an extremely good dancer and has a beautiful voice too – but you guys know this already.

Individuality

Take a look at how he expresses his individuality through his song covers.

Eccentric & Quirky

You guys thought the fact that Lockehart, Trelawney, and even heckin Luna were all in the same house was a coincidence? Ravenclaws are NOTORIOUS for being Extra™ . I’m not kidding! This is literally a personality trait of Ravenclaws that we overlook so often from these weirdos. And Jeon fuckin Jungkook invented the word eccentric:


you’d be here forever if i kept going so… you get the point. eccentric is jungkook’s middle name.

Jealousy/Envy

Jeonlous exists in this god forsaken fandom, and I ain’t gonna link it and open THAT can of worms, but if you’re feeling so inclined and care to enter the seventh circle of hell, feel free to look it up… but tread carefully.

Competitive

When I got the first ask about Ravenclaw Kook I had woken up at 3am and sleepily looked at my emails. I saw the ask and immediately had to jot down my ideas to keep for the next day, and all I managed to write in my sleep stupor was this

and then i promptly fell back asleep.

I was referring to this, and if you don’t feel bad for poor Jin in this situation I don’t know what to tell you. Jungkook is intensely competitive, even over small things like board games. He was so intent on winning that game that he literally assaulted someone five years his senior to sabotage them.

And then this is him trying to win a dance-off… doing the most, as usual.

And also?? He was literally banned from the gym because he was getting too buff. And look at him take out that guy in wrestling… and then demolish poor Jimin, the smallest member of BTS in arm wrestling when he could have… you know… let him win or something……

It’s a pretty well known meme within the fandom that Jungkook is competitive and always trying to outdo the others.



But when it comes down to it, Ravenclaws are still known for being smart, right? We can take all these other traits and apply them to Jeon but what about his brain?

He’s actually kinda smart. He is able to cover a song in perfect English even though he doesn’t speak the language all that well (but well enough to constantly correct others’ English and he’s good enough to tell you he’s really not all that interested in participating in English Time anyways)

And I mean…. he can outsmart the other members pretty well…………..


But I think one of the most important things to note about Jungkook being in Ravenclaw is to look at who sorted him, Namjoon: Namjoon himself gave Jungkook the nickname “Golden Maknae”. He is constantly saying that Jungkook can do anything, or watch this Jungkook can do this, or wow look at him go, or he’s so talented this and that. Is it really any surprise that Namjoon would put Jungkook in to a house known for being highly skilled when he believes no less of the kid?

Jungkook has some pretty Slytherin-like qualities – but tons of canon HP characters and the BTS members themselves have traits that are shared by all four houses. It’s just a matter of where he fits best.

I mean TL;DR, Jeon says it best himself:

Everyone is happy…

Originally posted by the-rap-man

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Killer!Jungkook, Angst, Smut (in later chapters)

Word Count: 1,800

Content/Warnings: Since this is the prologue it’s pretty tame, but prepare for future: Violence, Gore, Smut, Offensive Language. The next chapter has very graphic gore, so if you’re not into that, back out now. Although Jungkook does kill in this series, this is not a serial killer AU.

A/N: For those of you who have read my other works before, you’ll find that this one is quite a departure from my usual “cute” and more light hearted fics. It’s my first time writing a series so it may be quite short compared to series by other writers. Anyway, I hope you enjoy ~

Summary:

You would die for him, kill for him, and everything in between. 

He was as much a part of you as yourself. 

You didn’t want anyone else. 

It was always Jungkook.

  • stops her by putting a hand on her shoulder and smiling

High School AUs (based on real experiences I’ve had) pt. 1

I know no one asked for this, but I kind of wanna share these wild rides with someone, so here goes lol


1. I was waiting to get picked up after staying at school for a Shakespeare lecture, and you were waiting to get picked up after band practice. A dog suddenly ran past us in the parking lot, so we debated whether or not we should tell anyone.

2. I saw you getting really uncomfortable because of Creepy Tom not leaving you alone, so I swooped in and pretended I needed you for an emergency.

3. We tutor freshman in the same time slot every week, so we always go together to pick up the students from their classes and sometimes end up just talking shit with them instead of doing any work.

4. Your best friend and my best friend used to date, and they only broke up really recently, so they still kind of have feelings for each other. We end up joining them when your best friend is trying to win mine back, so we spend like an hour sharing exasperated looks.

5. We’ve known each other for three years and you stop by every day to steal my pretzels, since I never eat them, and one day I forget to pack them and you get super offended. You end up dragging me to the store, so you can buy pretzels for yourself and gummy worms for me.

anonymous asked:

So I recently read this article on one of those sugar daddy/mommy websites where this girl became a sugar baby to help pay for school. And so it sorta gave me this idea of Clarke being a busy surgeon who is just looking for someone to have fun with and who is willing to go to charity dinners and so she posts on one of sugar mom websites and first Finn,then Raven (or Niylah), and eventually Bellamy answer her ad. Maybe B is doing it to help pay for O's school? IDK...what do you think?

I think - yes, I can totally do this. Although, this isn’t a kink fic. So if you wanted that, I’m sorry, but I’m not really okay with that particular kink. If you wanted something sweet, Bellamy being altruistic and Clarke being weird af - that I can do. :D

Also on AO3



“Ok, so how do I write this without sounding creepy?”

Wells shoots Clarke a glare over a coffee table littered with empty pizza boxes and beer cans.

“You are literally posting an ad to a sugar mommy website, Clarke. There is no way anything you write won’t be creepy.”

Still, they manage to come up with something relatively non-threatening because this is not a kink for Clarke. She isn’t looking for a fuckbuddy. Not exactly.

She’s just looking for someone to keep her company, all expenses paid, and not moan about her crazy schedule. Being a surgeon means that relationships are hard and as much as she’d like to fall in love, she prefers saving lives and feeling like she’s actually doing something good for the greater good.

“Which is how most villains start out,” Wells adds helpfully, trying not to grin but failing when she hits him with a yellow post-it pad. 

“You’re rude. Why are we even friends?”

“Because there’s no one else who’d help you write this ad.”

“Good point.”

So she writes the ad, makes sure she emphasizes that she’s mostly looking for someone willing to drink copious amounts of champagne and make fun of snobs on charity galas for a more than polite compensation.

It’s not like she’s actually expecting someone to reply to the ad.

But they do.

past midnight - luke hemmings

so i was requested to do a “late night with luke” piece and i just liked the idea so much i decided to turn it into a mini series with luke and Y/N meeting in various slightly strange situations at various slightly strange hours of the night


at around 2:37am Luke finally gave up on the hope of getting some sleep. Throwing the blankets off himself he stood up and walked over to his window, pressing his forehead against the cool glass. The flat was completely silent, something unusual in a space shared by 4 teenagers, and Luke found a sense of calm finally settling over him as he looked up at the stars. Deciding he might as well do something useful as he was up he padded into the kitchen. 

‘Oh hi, didn’t think anyone was up.’ the voice in the almost completely dark kitchen started Luke and he found himself tripping over his own feet and stumbling as he walked through the door. 

‘Who the fuck are you?’ he asked as he looked up at the girl perched on the kitchen counter, a cup of coffee in one hand and phone in the other. 

‘Y/N.’ she replied simply, taking a sip of her coffee. ‘And who the fuck are you?’

Why You Should Reconsider Being Premed

You know, life has a way of surprising you and turning everything upside down when you least expect it. When I was 9 years old my mother gave me a copy of Mosby’s Medical Encyclopedia, and I would read it every single day. I’d take it to school, read it at the park, pull it out when a big fancy medical word popped up on the news, etc. I was fascinated with medicine at a young age. This was probably destiny, though. I have five doctors in my family; an orthopedic surgeon, maternal-fetal medicine specialist, dermatologist and two psychiatrists, one of whom was my father. I have been in ORs, watched the broken be cut open and put together again, knew how to suture before I entered middle school, memorized all those damn acronyms when I should have been studying for the SAT, etc. I still have that same medical encyclopedia.

Today, I find myself a university student majoring in Anthropology and Communication Disorders, and pursuing all the required courses for medical school. My GPA is a 3.8, I’ve done the obligatory volunteer work, tutored Deaf and Deaf/Blind kids, worked as a peer and academic counselor, got the EMT license, organized the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for the homeless, done enough research to fill a textbook and I feel nothing. The passion, the spark has faded. The more I work in the hospital, the more physicians I shadow and the more I read about the state of healthcare and medicine worldwide, the more disenchanted I become. You read all the surveys asking physicians if they’d pursue medicine if they could do it all over again, and, on average, less than 50% say they would do so. In fact, the average is 41%. However, is this as much of a surprise as it sounds? Is it shocking that there are articles called “$1 Million Mistake: Becoming a Doctor” out in the world?

Everything I thought I loved about medicine has become dull and gray. The magic has been cast aside by the harsh light of reality. It takes around a decade beyond your BA to become a physician (4 years medical school + 1 year optional internship + 3-6 year residency + 1-3 year fellowship), you graduate medical school with around $160,000 in debt, start earning a decent salary roughly 10-12 years after the rest of your friends from university have already secured their careers and promotions, spend almost half your day doing paperwork as opposed to hands-on patient care, often have time with your patients limited to 15 minutes, etc. BUT! This is not why we go into medicine, right? We don’t care about the time it takes, the money we may make or lose, etc. We care about the patients. We care about being compassionate healers who touch the hearts and souls of those in need, and give them hope when all seems lost. But is medical school worth it?

I’ve interviewed several healthcare professionals and medical scientists. The most miserable: physicians. The happiest and most satisfied: those who passed on medical school, or went into research. I met those who went to medical school and decided to change careers, those who dropped out of medical school, premeds who changed their mind, etc. The physician assistant was happier than the neurosurgeon, got to see his family every night, interacted with patients more often and spent less time on paperwork. The nurse knew all of her patients by name and history without having to look at a chart to remind her, commanded more respect and ran every protocol while the ER physician watched. The epidemiologist traveled to more than 9 countries, prevented the spread of over 20 infectious disease outbreaks, did more hands-on patient care than any physician I’ve ever seen and had time to do and publish research. The medical anthropologist flew to a different country every few months, built wells for clean water to prevent waterborne diseases, built health clinics in Sudan, set up rape and abuse education programs in 3 countries, wrote 3 books and had time to pursue EMT licensure, certificates in HIV/AIDS education, an MPH and raise 2 kids. The pathology assistant earns almost as much as the pathologist he worked for, did more autopsies (his preference) and has the freedom to do almost everything his superior does.

What is the point of all of this? It is not to discourage anyone from pursuing medicine, a career in healthcare, etc. It is to remind us all that medical school is not the only option. We become so fascinated with the “MD,” “DO,” ND,” etc. that we forget there is a whole world of opportunities passing us by. We stay awake until 3am reading about orgo nomenclature, watching Greys Anatomy to keep us inspired (you know you do it) to the point where we forget that reality is not the same as TV. Personally, I think reality is better, but it is also worse. Ask yourself this: Is there something more I could be doing? Could you become a nurse, physician assistant, drug researcher, Peace Corps member, medical anthropologist, health/medical interpreter, speech language pathologist/audiologist, podiatrist, forensic scientist, professor, genetic counselor, clinical herbalist, massage therapist, physical therapist, pathology assistant, chiropractor, bioethicist, public health official, epidemiologist, entrepreneur, expert in sustainable health practices, diagnostic sonographer, therapist, dietician/nutritionist, naturopath, geneticist, biotechnologist, anesthesiologist assistant, pharmacist, dentist, etc.? Do you want to join the system or change it? Do you have an idea that could change the face of healthcare, medicine and medical education? Are you putting it off for 10 years until you’re an attending with an average of 4 hours of sleep? Are you ready for the debt that comes with medical school when the very specialized career you want has a shorter and cheaper path?

Whatever you choose, you can do it. I have faith in every single one of you. You are all brilliant and have the capacity for excellence. Just be sure to educate yourselves and experience as much as you can before you commit to anything. Feel free to ask me questions. Cheers.

PS: I will be pursuing a dual degree in Linguistics and Anthropology, and becoming a conference interpreter. I plan on interpreting for human rights campaigns, the medically underserved, NGOs, the UN, EU, etc. :)

anonymous asked:

Hey! Have you got any advice for a high school freshman? (love your blog, by the way <3)

Hi! I’m gonna to be a freshman in high school soon and was wondering if you have any advice on how to stay on track, using planners and working around sports? Have a lovely day!

hey friends!!!! WHAT AN EXCITING TIME FOR YOU BOTH!! AHH!! (also thank u ily)

figured i could answer these together since they’re pretty similar!! it’s been 8 years (dear god i’m old) since i was a freshman in high school, but i’m going to try my best to share some advice!! 

  • you’re going to be okay. high school seems like this very large daunting thing, and while there’s gonna be a lot of new stuff thrown at you, you’re gonna be so okay!! everyone else in your class, your friends from middle school, all that stuff, they’re in a brand new boat too!! find solidarity in that. 
    • also, upperclassmen will seem like weird, really tall, attractive creatures, while you may perhaps feel like awkward and unsure and a little like AAHHH and stuff. patience – a lot happens in the 4 years of high school. ignore the seniors and just focus on ur own thing and you’ll be fine 
  • your work load is gonna increase. you will have obscene amounts of homework, particularly if you’re in pre-AP classes or honors classes or whatever sort of upper level class. it will seem very sudden and very overwhelming, but mentally prepare yourself for it, and then figure out a game plan. 
  • the study habits that you develop in your freshman year will carry you all throughout high school and into college, so it’s in your benefit to really explore how you best learn, what sort of planner system works for you, solidify your time management, all that stuff. 
    • confession: i went to an arts high school, so re: sports practice, i had to plan my homework around rehearsal!! i also commuted 30 minutes to and from school every day so i had to be very careful when planning out my homework. i was terrible at doing this. i would do my 1st period homework in the morning before class really quickly, or my physics homework during lunch, or squeeze it in during rehearsal. 
    • my after school routine was: get home, nap, play on the internet, eat dinner, mess around some more, start hw around 11pm and go to sleep around 2 or 3am, to get up at 5:45am to get to school by 7:30. i honestly have no idea how i survived high school and got the grades i did. don’t be me. please learn from my terrible mistakes. 
  • so! speaking of staying on track! once you have your schedule for the semester, and you have all your syllabi for your electives and classes and everything (also, re: electives – pick something you will actually truly enjoy. don’t just do choir cause it’s an easy credit but you hate singing/performing. electives are meant to be fun), write it all down!!! see where the big due dates are, see if for your sports team when your practices will be – spend the first week wrapping your head around a vague outline of your upcoming semester. if you can get an idea for when your workload is gonna be REALLY INTENSE and you’ll be pressed for time, you can prep accordingly!!! 
  • don’t be afraid to ask questions!!! if you do have a couple upperclassmen friends (like sophomores maybe), ask them for help!! get their advice, maybe their tips on dealing with one really tricky english teacher, stuff like that. 
    • also, listen to and respect your teachers – they LOVE when their students are engaged and acting questions. everyone else in 9th grade is way too focused on being “cool” which is just another word for “apathy” SO be the one awesome kid that actually engages the teacher. be the kid that raises ur hand all the time and answers all the questions and ppl will give you shit about being the teacher’s pet, but honestly being the teacher’s pet is amazing and a smart thing to do because 1) your teacher is a human and appreciates your input and engagement and 2) when you get that 89.45 on your report card and you really need that A, they are far more likely to bump you up. also give you minor extensions on assignments when you hit a rough spot. develop your relationships with your teachers. this is also a great skill you’ll want to take with you to university, so start working on it now! 
  • pack your own lunch – i don’t know about you, but at my high school the cafeteria food wasn’t free. so save the $5, stay away from the grease-soaked pizza and tater tots, and pack urself a good old pb&j on wheat with some carrots and cucumber and a yogurt tube. ALSO grapes !!! man, i love grapes. 
  • join clubs!!! i regret not joining clubs in high school – they’re so fun and a great way to make new friends!! try the school newspaper, a comic book club, whatever sort your school might have around !! 
  • please have fun – and i don’t mean like drinking and all that shit like they show in the movies (that’s a whole other post honestly, so i digress), but like you’re 14/15!! you are so young with not too many responsibilities, use this time to really hang out with your friends, enjoy your time at school, like…not worry. i was so anxious and so sad when i was 14, and as a result my high school years are a bit of a blur, so just – relax. the projects will get done, the rehearsals/practices/whathaveyou will go as they go, the papers will be written. just enjoy yourself. <33
  • i would say “be yourself” but i think that phrase is a load of bullshit because no one ever knows who they are, so be whoever you want to be!!! this is way easier said than done, but don’t worry about the bullshit of cliques and being “cool” and dressing well and impressing people. be exactly whatever you want to be, whatever makes your heart happiest, and you’ll attract the people that you’re meant to befriend. i was fucking weiRD in middle school/high school, but the few true friends i made are ones that i still have to this day because they saw me at my weirdest and we grew up and learned together. you’ll also find people to share in that experience with you and it’s totally beautiful 

wOW that was a lot and i’m sure there is so much more, but that’s all i’ve got right now !! i hope that helps!!! love you both, and best of luck!!! xoxo

PART ONE (a.u)

or’: in which dumb7 like to think they’re the new local gang and should be considered badass just because they got a bunch of bikes off ebay that were on sale and now they pretend to take beatdown requests. careful though, hyung line doesn’t mess around,…or at least they hope so.

warnings: mentions of bars/paid violence, vulgar language, lots of crack, super brief mention of dead ppl but it’s indirect no worries, mentions of needles and tattoos? 

special thanks to @bangtanbrochachos​ once again for helping out w some of the ideas my angle and my devil

• the type to quietly whisper ‘ay’ in the background while someone’s getting dragged
•  is actually the one with the highest credibility because he doesn’t really talk he’s just tall there are ready to stare everyone down saying nothing for like an eternity 
•  and he’s just staring them down like ‘are you really gonna do anything about it? are you’ and the person either backs off or gets into an existential crisis
• but listen if he starts talking it’s all fkin gone his vocabulary is way too eloquent for like fake bar fights and places in where broke ass people are giving leaves as gifts and
•  please stop this boy he’s too polite and cares about morals over money and all the fake shit they’re trying to sell like you could honestly go to him, slap some bills right on the table and be like ‘yo beat me up’ and he’d just look at you like you told him apples grow on trees and be like ‘now why would i do such a thing?’
•  not the one for conflict like ever and if his mates are trying to start shit he just stares @ them too and it’s game over 
•  him and yugyeom can’t always stand in the same room as the rest of the group if they’re having some closed off confrontation bc they’ll block all the light and there’ll be just weird ass smoke and darkness in the room while jackson is trying to hype everyone up and get the goddamn smoking machine to turn off 
• he’s sometimes getting shit like ‘please stop you’re scaring me’ while he was just standing there when he’s a walking puppy question mark pls (((ay)))))

• cue jackson getting #BornForTheSky trending #1 on twitter after that  n nobody was the same  
• also he is the one who usually appears in bambam’s pictures for ig which consist of him lying against a window w jaebum’s studded leather jacket looking at the lamp in the kitchen w the caption ‘the moonlight shines beautifully’

the half which is not a half but more like 85% of the tryhards™ or whole group if you will 
i don’t really care about this whole biker thing, says im jaebum at 3am searching fake septums on amazon and printing a whole how to look tough without real tattoos cause needles are scary wikihow article 
used to have a pretty hard time with speaking w strangers like he has his shit together but got more comfortable over the time  especially bc they let him be the leader
 so now everytime he’s speaking to some dude and he gives a good comeback the rest of got7 clap and aggressively holler & headbang while youngjae is filming everything w his nokia and jinyoung whispers to him ‘you’re doing amazing sweetie’
 usually moves p quietly and makes slides instead of steps when he’s in that  mood he’s just feeling smooth bro and he’ll suddenly hear ‘sappunsappun georeoga~~’ slouch and die inside a little when will im jaebum live tbh 
•  got a discount for lace chokers from the ebay guy he got the motorcycles off and got the middle aged mom mentality like ‘wow this is 3% off maybe it will come in handy i must have it ‘
the reason everyone gets to go even to the grocery store down the block on the motorcycle bc girls literally pay him to take them two streets to college and take selfies with him
you might think he doesn’t care for how they appear on social media either but he’s the one who changes bambam’s ig descriptions to my chemical romance
got shook when he first accidentally punched someone and apologised & told them that they can punch him back if they wanted + had regretful thoughts for like a week after
•  doesn’t let the members to make deals after 10 bc sleep is more important than punching ppl in the face 
catch tsundere bum who totally doesn’t care about anything getting his jacket manually studded and adding silver chains to his jeans because he wants to be one step ahead of his enemies mhm we see you boi
• when they first formed their ‘gang’ and he got picked the leader bc he paid for everything jackson suggested the name ‘hell dogs’ and jb wanted to censor it bc it wasn’t appropriate so he wanted to call it infernal poodles and almost put that on a jacket w neon purple writing and flames around it at yj’s prayers 
• he changed his mind though when he got hospitalised bc he was accidentally almost hit

• otherwise he’s like ‘yeah man no worries i’ll take care of it - jackson like a puma!!!’ 
•  wears abercrombie cologne not because he is extremely aware that the members don’t like it, but because ‘only good looking people can wear abercrombie’
•  is known as the bad man to the kids around the neighbourhood he lives in even tho he literally loves them all and wants to protect everyone (’why is he bad again?’ ‘shh son he drives a honda’) basically no one lets him live bc of that but he likes it so it’s all a-ok 
• accuses the members of trying to sabotage him if they tell him to slow it down w the cologne and tells them how ‘the rich musk will attract all the attention they need to make this work you guys are just haters’ 
• a dress code was made for this whole thing believe it or not but he never follows it he just randomly shows up in coats and insists they have ‘a meeting’ to decide if this is a problem when all the members are standing there in their ripped denim and leather jackets like ffs
• pleads to the victim to just walk funnily out of the location or something bc he rlly doesn’t want to do this

• also he’s the one who takes the jackets and ripped jeans to the washer once a week and they’re not allowed to wear normal clothes while riding (it’s the dress code yugyeom shut the fk up)
• catch dumb7 riding their motorcycles to buy garlic sauce for jinyoung and his ma during that time
•  his street name used to be junior until the group got a group call from jinyoung’s parents and told them they won’t let jinny play gangsters w the boys unless they call him by his real name
• a straight up bitch and who knows whether that might be the only straight he is 
• the only violent thing about him is the death glare he has which can 100% box with the actual dead trust me on this this,,,is,, science 
• the real savage, the one you should really fear the most like 96% of the time and he doesn’t even try to fight he just smiles @ you and u suddenly have the desire to run to church and beg for forgiveness,,, that is ,, a thing
• never allows the members to go past the speeding limit so they always end up late to any ‘business’ they have, blames it on the red lights and no one dares to correct him 
• has a ‘seriously strawberry’ bubble tape pack which he takes out of his pocket and opens it like he’s about to throw a damn grenade and literally bites off the roll (jackson: that man is a savage) after he parks his yamaha sr500 to feel more badass 
• except that one time when he bit onto empty air bc youngjae ate all his bubblegum the day before and stuffed it back into jy’s pocket and tbh everyone should pray for whoever dared to anger him that day (yg: so should he run or should he run now)
• the one who makes all the deals, was supposed to meet with two dudes who requested their services in some bar in the middle of nowhere but only one arrived in time and jinyoung was discussing wtv was needed w the dude and when jinyoung makes deals boi does he get into it 
• and the other dude arrived some time later and opened the door and jinyoung’s head turned almost 180 degrees w the most bitter look and was like ‘that was really fkin rude was i speaking or was i speaking’ 
• sometimes mark or jaebum accompany hin to these kinda meetings and sit in the back to guard

OTP Idea #459

Imagine your OT4 working in the fashion industry. Person A is the manager, Person B is the model, Person C is their fashion designer and Person D is their makeup specialist.

Credit to anon.


A = Vanoss. B = Delirious. C = Wildcat. D = Cartoonz. :D

The ultimate ship name = H2OVANCATOONZ.

Vanoss whines all the time because nobody really takes him seriously anymore. He’ll burst in the room and yell “the show is starting in five minutes!” But everybody is just lounging around playing on their phones and ignoring him.

Delirious does whatever the fuck he wants to. Feels like going out for coffee in the middle of a show? Fuck yeah! “Delirious! Where the hell are you going? You still have three more sets to go through! What do you mean ‘I’ll be right back’?! The curtain’s already opening! Delirious!!”

Wildcat comes up with the best outfits (that all somehow have a bit of blue to them). And when no one’s looking he sews bows into the back of Delirious’ coat. He just plays rock music and chills in the break room while Delirious is onstage because “he’s got this man”.

Cartoonz knows all about which makeups are best for what type, and he will fight you over the ‘summer skin’ thing. To no surprise, he’s the one giving Delirious a ride to the Starbucks next door, and laughs with Delirious as Vanoss freaks out and sends a million and one texts begging them to come back. (And then yelling at them for pulling this shit like they always do.)

They sleep on two king sized beds placed side by side in one giant studio apartment, and have too many pets for this relationship.

Vanoss always walks around in his underwear while cooking breakfast and singing bad showtunes. (The neighbors get quite a view because of the large, balcony sized windows lining the apartment.) He doesn’t want to admit he lifts weights, but there’s two small dumbbells hidden under the couch that everyone pretends to not know about.

Wildcat usually has to be pulled out of bed, and doesn’t notice much of anything until he’s had his coffee. Which they’ve all taken advantage of at one point or another. (Once, by webbing off the kitchen with pink silly string that he just walked into without a fuck, strands hanging everywhere off his shoulders, chest, and hair. Another time, Cartoonz duck taped doggie treats to the insides of Wildcat’s pants, and the man didn’t even notice all the dogs chewing on his legs until his second cup of coffee.)

Delirious is a heavy sleeper, and loves to lay on top of people and cuddle. (Much to the pain of Vanoss’ early business meetings that he can never get to on time because Delirious is holding tight to his leg and Wildcat’s at the same time and there’s just no hope of getting free.) He stays up late watching cartoons and anime with whoever is still up, and texts Noogla and Moo everything he can think of until they’re all begging him to go to bed.

Cartoonz has a motorcycle that he loves so much he keeps it in the bedroom (as much as Wildcat hates it), and spends every evening polishing it, and cooing over it. (Wildcat mocked him once, saying if he babied it anymore the damn thing would be wearing diapers. So when they all woke up to a giant Huggie’s diaper covering the seat of the thing, Cartoonz lunged at WIldcat until Delirious’ hysterical giggles clued him in to the real culprit.)

Cartoonz and Wildcat have a bit of a rivalry, and it didn’t help anything when Delirious threw a bucket of mud on them both and told them to get naked and wrestle. (Although they did both tackle him at the same time and tickled him until he nearly peed himself with laughter, their hands slick with mud sliding everywhere until everyone was aroused and out of breath.)

Vanoss doesn’t really care about too much, they all give him too much stress in the work place to worry about any personal stuff, and he knows that they know how much he cares. (But still, the loop-sided cookies at 3am from Cartoonz bring a sigh of relief after he misses another impromptu make-out session.)

There’s four controllers and a game system hooked up to their tv, and they’ve gone through so damn many controllers, someone is always playing something. (Especially after they’ve just all fucked each other’s brains out so hard nobody can really walk yet, so they need something to do and someone grabs a controller and throws the others across the bed, and they just sit there and play for all hours of the night and day.)

Wildcat always wants to turn on Runway shows, but he gets so loud yelling at the tv about designers who couldn’t stitch to save their fucking life that someone always tackles him for the remote.

Cartoonz is a lousy cook, and always wanders off in the middle of whatever he’s making so much so that there’s now three alarms in the kitchen (just in case the first two don’t catch the fire fast enough).

And Delirious loves to walk around in the nude at the worst times. Like that time when Vanoss was skype-chatting a potential gig in London in the kitchen and Delrious just strolled in, buck-naked, and bent down at the fridge to get some leftovers. His ass high in the air for all to see. (Surprisingly, or not, the man on the other side of the call quickly flushed red and promptly agreed to sign them on.)

pairing: hoshi/you
genre: fluff i guess
rating: pg
summary: hoshi being an annoying cuddling partner.

You were pacing around the room, slightly panicking. Soonyoung and you went on a movie night marathon and both of you haven’t paid attention to the time, being too engrossed in the movies, and suddenly, it was 3AM… Way too late for any bus to be passing right now for you to get back home.

“Why are you guys panicking?” Soonyoung’s neck and yours quickly snapped to the left at sudden voice. “Y/n can just stay here for the night.”

You were nervously biting your lips as you looked between Soonyoung and Seungcheol, not knowing what to answer. You’ve only been dating Soonyoung for two weeks, you two haven’t had the chance to sleep on the same bed yet, so this would be a first.

Soonyoung slowly nodded his head at the idea. “Right… You’re right… Is it okay for you?”

You laughed as you looked at both of them. “I mean it’s not like I have another choice.”

Soonyoung handed you a pair of black sweats and one of his white t-shirts and you went into the bathroom to change yourself. As you entered the room again when you were done, Soonyoung looked up from his phone and as his eyes landed on you, his lips slowly broke into a huge smile. He opened his arms and as if it was a reflex, your feet quickly shuffled towards him before wrapping your arms around his waist.

He enveloped you into his arms and swung both of your bodies from left to right. “Babe, you look so tiny and adorable in my clothes. I should let you borrow them more often.”

You quietly laughed and slightly shivered when you felt him nuzzle his nose into your neck before planting a kiss there and letting you go. Soonyoung sat on the bed and opened the covers to slide his body inside before looking at you invitingly as he held the blanket open for you. You laughed loudly at the ridiculous look he gave you before laying beside him. Right when Soonyoung closed the light, silence filled the whole room.

It was slightly awkward as you both just laid beside each other but you were tired out, you quickly felt your eyelids drooping already. But right when you were about to drift into sleep, you felt Soonyoung moving from the side and hitting your arm with his in the process. You let out a soft sigh as you turned around to make yourself comfortable again and you were about to successfully fall asleep when you felt a another movement coming from the other figure shake the whole bed.

You sighed loudly. “What are you doing?”

It took a few seconds before Soonyoung answered. “It’s just… I’m just used to sleeping in the middle.”

You quietly groaned before turning around to face him and shifted closer to his body to wrap your arms around his torso and laid your head against his chest as one of his hands found its way around your waist. He slightly pulled you closer as you started to get comfortable, slightly rubbing your face against his chest. You stayed a few seconds in this position before Soonyoung suddenly got up.

“This… This isn’t working.” He shook his head as he ruffled his hair.

You sighed under your breath, starting to get a little annoyed. “Then… Let’s try spooning.”

Soonyoung nodded as you turned your back on him and he wrapped one of his arm around your body, bringing your back closer to his chest, and you lifted your hands to hold onto his hand.

A few seconds later of silence, Soonyoung sighed again.

“What, now?”

He pouted before taking the arm that was under your body and shaking it hard. “My arm’s falling asleep.”

You didn’t say anything as you stayed in the same position, facing him from the back as he turned around to face the opposite way from you too.

You heard a voice mumble something again.

“Well… I don’t like this…”

“I’m never going to sleep in the same bed as you again.” You grumbled under your breath before turning around to face him again and he smiled apologetically. “I’m sorry.” He mumbled, pushing a strand of hair away from your face, before kissing you on the cheek and rubbing his nose against yours and you couldn’t stop yourself from smiling.

“Alright… Let’s try this… Turn around.” You said and Soonyoung quickly obeyed, in fear of making you annoyed again. You shuffled closer to him and wrapped both of your arms around his waist and you pushed him closer to your chest. You lifted your leg and threw it over his.

Soonyoung was smiling. “I like this…” He whispered as he started to get more comfortable into your hold. “I really like this.”

You smiled behind his neck and slightly tightened your hold around him before loosening up as both of you finally started to drift into sleep.

its 5am i wrote this in 30 mins pls forgive me

How kpop disappointed me/ exo drama/ the impact in my life

Hello, my name is carol and its 3am, i should be sleeping right now but i found this blog and as reading these confessions i felt a strong urge to confess myself as well.
I’ve been dealing with this feelings and thoughts for a while now, but I cant say anything on my twitter fc (cause the other kpoppers will judge me) and i dont have any friend who would care enough for what i have to say.
So this is going to be long, i apologize.

I was emo, you know? Listened to emo bands and heavy music with screams and shit, and i was always against pop music because it was fake, and it was purely all for the money. So you have no idea how shocked i was when i found myself starting to like kpop.
I met kpop thanks to my best friend at the time (we’re not friends anymore), and she was emo as well, i remember when she would still wear black and dye her hair and talk about Get Scared and Devin Sola on twitter while she was discovering kpop and listening to SNSD. She showed me “I got a boy” mv and i was like…. okay… but nah.
A few months later she left the emo side and got really deep in the kpop world becaming an Exo fan and Chanyeol biased.
I just watched her while i was still digesting the idea that she left our emo world to be a fan of asian people.
I never thought it would happened to me.
But there was this music channel on tv and every week it would have this “ichiban interference” which would show asian music, kpop, cpop, jpop and jrock.

I missed my friend, and i felt distanced from her. So i started to watch that program to see if i could like kpop. And…….. I kind of did. I was just so excited to get back to having something in common with her and i just wrote the names of the groups i have liked while watching the program so i could search it later on.

*funny fact tho, somehow i already new shinee 2 years before i enter the kpop world for real, and even thought i didnt listen to them i would mantain this crush on choi minho and even like his pages on facebook.

The first group i got into was, of course, Shinee, because i already new them and already loved Minho. So until this day they are my babies and my ultimate group.

She was all into Exo and i just didnt really cared for them. But because it was important to her, i gave it a shot.
I entered the Exo fandom right after Kris left. I didnt had any problems to know who was who. Althought at the beggining i had a problem with sehun and luhan and for a while i thought they were the same person lol but that passed.
I also made an fc on twitter to be close with my friend again, which made me later on go very deep in the exo world. And because of all the problems they had, I also suffered a fucking lot being a part of their world.
-
As i said before, i was always against pop music because it was purely commercial. The thing that made me accept kpop was when i read about the trainee thing, and how they would work really hard for years and just really dedicate themselves to the maximum to acomplish their dreams. I thought that was very admirable. So i felt like it was okay for me to like kpop, because it was different and they were all very admirable people.
I thought it was a dream land you know? Get accepted in a company, be a trainee for a few years and then debut and become pretty and famous and rich.
But as soon, as me being an exo-l, exo started to fall apart, all of these delusional ideas i had about that lifestyle and this industry, began to crash.

When Luhan left I spend like, 4 weeks crying. No joke, i would start crying in the middle of the night and go running into my dads room so he could confort me.

I dont know how and why but Exo really took the best out of me. I would cry for anything they did. it was insane. But also im very sensible and i do cry a lot so idk.

The thing is, after that i got really hurt you know? Because i thought SM after kris leaving would be more rational about things and would treat the boys better. But no.
And now its Tao’s turn and this one… This one is just extremely fucked up. Because i know, i know very deep in my heart how Tao loves Exo and loves us fans. He was always the one who would try to make us feel better and confort us, and he always promised he would never leave. And now to be where we are now, i mean… It makes me realize how fucked up this industry is behind the scenes.
(As i am young to this fandom you’ll probably say i dont have the right to be this sad and blablabla. But I did watched showtime and i think once you watch that there’s no turning back, you’ll love each boy and cherish them to the maximum. Because i entered the fandom right when kris left, i didnt really cared for him, but after showtime i was like… really sad, and even thought i became a fan when they were ot11, i am ot12 in my heart. You might think i dont have the right to it but i dont care, i know my feelings towards it and i know how much i care about them)


So after that, and also that whole baekyeon scandal (it shocked me that baek and tae lost fans just because they fell in love. I do understand that they didnt handle things how it should’ve been handle but damn, have the fans never experienced falling in love with someone and wanting to share their love with others and show it to people, and how exciting everything is? not to mention baek is young and he always liked tae. I dont like her, and she is older, so i do think she as someone more responsible, should’ve known better), and honestly it really pisses me off how the fandom said it was marketing, BECAUSE GOD FORBIT THAT BAEKHYUN IS ACTUALLY STRAIGHT AND DOES NOT DATE CHANYEOL IN REAL LIFE!!!!!! That is one thing i dont have the patience. Im all up for homossexuality, but to see how hardcore these shippers can be and how the fans suddenly feel like they have the right to dictate the sexuality of their idol and anyone who says “no, he’s straight” is wrong and delusional… I mean… Come on.. Get off your high horse honey. (i dont know if it was markenting or not, i do not care either, i just hated how the fans reacted)
And seeing the korean media and how the netizens criticize everything the idols do that dont go acording to what they belive. And seeing how they are always making big drama out of nothing ( ex taehyung x bigbang). Seeing how the fans deal with all of this, where their idols cant even be themselves that they’ll instantly get criticized (ex: sehun and his comments on ig) …. I really hate that, the fact that the idols (not all idols) cant be themselves completely, they have to follow some rules (probably) to what they can or cant say, and they cant even be free on the internet either as the fans will judge them and the media as well. So I mean, how can I love someone and be fan of someone, that it isnt true? You know what I mean? How can I relate to you? I cant.
I just got so tired, Im exausted to say the least.

I wont say kpop ruined my life, because honestly shinee is still one of the few things that makes me happy and whenever im sad i listen to them and feel better. And Im really happy because Shinee is one group that remains intact, they never have any dramas with their name on it. Its just so peaceful for me to be a shawol. Also being a xiumin, lay and tao biased, they never failed to make me happy, and every time i see them i instantly gain a smile in my face. Also my parents support me much more with me liking kpop than with me liking, as they call it “noises and screams and dirty people who look dead”. Anddd my mom also likes choi minho so its pretty awesome when we talk about him and fight for him as in who he belongs to. (HE IS MINE MOM)

But i entered the kpop world thinking it would be magical and it would only bring joy in my life. But now im at a point where everything is just slowly being destroyed and the land i once thought it was bright and colorful is now all black and white and broken.
Not to mention how kpop took my life completely, i was never into going out (as i have social anxiety and panic attacks) but the fact that i would spend ALL of my daily hours on my fc just talking about koreans and chineses and saving their pictures religiously and spending hours organizing their albuns and stuff (my exo paste have 14 thousand pictures and this is just the pictures i would save while i was on twitter, without downloading any pack or anything)
I just…. this was a really long rant and im still keeping out a lot of other thoughts, this is just a resume basically.
I just wanted to say that im disapointed. There’s no better word than that. I felt like i was promised so many things while entering this world, but as things kept progressing a lot of things happened and my positive thoughts about it were slowly dying, and i compromized so much of myself and my life to it, to now being here, sad and all fucked up thanks to it.
Lately i dont stay on my twitter so much, i rarely enter it tbh. And i just spend my days reading or watching a serie or anything that its not related to asians and kpop because honestly i just need a break from it, a break to digest all of the things that happened in 2014, a break from this drastic change of (my) taste and just trying to deal with the true that it is: kpop is not what i looks like, yes the music is good, yes they look good and happy but we dont know what happens when no one’s around, we only know what we are showed and therefore, due to all the dramas that happened, i myself am incapable of trusting kpop again.
(I even started to listen to my emo bands again, so i could forget kpop for a while. This is what is helping me ‘keeping it real’)
I will always love my groups and will always support them, but I dont wanna go back to the place i was (dedicating my life to it). And now i definitely am more aware of everything, and if anything, one positive thing that kpop did was making me more smart and careful towards my trusting hability.
Thats it, thats my confession, it was really long im sorry. I started writing this at 3am and now is 4am.
*I have a question tho, it was only with me that after kpop i just dont feel atraction to ocidental guys like i used too? I was never really picky when it comes to men but after kpop now i do want them to be someone who take care of themselves, and have a nice skin, and dress nicely. Also i get crazy everytime i see an asian on the street, and i just find them much more atractive than the ocidental person.
*im brazilian so sorry for any mistakes, as english is not my first language.
*please be kind and try not to call me names. I know that for some people i’ll appear like a retarted girl, and maybe i am, but i just really needed to get this out of me. And if you want to know, im 16 and started to like kpop in the end of 2013 when i was still 14.

On The Right Side Of The Wrong Bed: The Beginning (December)

It started with a phone call. On a Friday in December, two weeks before Christmas, at 2:31am. 

She couldn’t remember how he’d gotten her number. It wasn’t hard to believe, though. He was her baby brother’s best mate. But she never expected a not-so-charmingly inebriated Niall Horan to ring her at some ungodly hour of the night after a few too many whisky sours or Jameson and Cokes.

29 days. 29 different love stories. 
I’m Banna, and I have this idea. As a mediocre writer, I’ve found that because of how self-conscious I am of my writing, I rarely post online unless someone tells me it’s good enough. I want that to stop. So, I made a project. 

For every day of February, I will be posting a small piece of writing every day for the 29 days of February, using the 29 different themes I have listed below the cut.  Each theme was ideas I got from other works, blogs, and friends who’ve contributed to this project. Every day, I will pick one off the list, pick a Teen Wolf pairing, and write a small ficlet for it. 

I’m posting this because I want this to be a collective project for all my writers within the fandom, whether you’ve been writing for years, or are just starting out, and are also not so confident. You can pick whichever pairing, otp, ot3, ot4, and pick a prompt from the list, and write. You can use the tag #29DLS (which is what I’ll be using) to tag your work, and to check out what I and others will be writing.  

Reblog and share this post with the world so we can get more people to join in, or to just be interested in this super cool prompt list:

You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky (Steve/Tony 1/1)

My fingers have been itching for some writing, so here’s some Steve/Tony fluff for the #12daysofstevetony fest by @dailysuperhusbands The prompt was “Light”.


It figures, Tony think to himself in a way that he wouldn’t describe as bitter even if it is verging on that. It figures that super villains don’t take Christmas off. Like a venereal disease that flares up when you least expect it, that’s what super villains are.

And Doctor Doom is definitely the herpes in that metaphor.

Tony sighs, and stares at the Avengers communal room, or what’s left of it. The Christmas tree - a huge monstrosity that looks more like it belongs in a sequoia forrest than a living room, but that’s what happens when Thor is in charge of that - is lying on its side, baubles exploded in a million shattered pieces all around it. The Christmas lights spark to life once and then die in a corner, and there’s a burned out hole in the rug where the misguided robot that crashed through the window and the room met its demise at the mercy of Natasha’s stingers.
