i got to shine

monsta x members + name meanings

things people should stop doing: misgendering male k-idols because some things they do or somethings about them aren’t completely masculine which is apparently such a fucking travesty

things people should start doing: normalizing the idea that male k-idols can be delicate and gentle and like feminine things and support them without labeling them or questioning them

just let them be.

#two very different relationships for shaw yet both so important #they both loved her so much but in different ways (one platonically and the other romantically) and its big because for someone that always thought something was wrong with her and no one would ever take the time to GET her #she ended up gaining two people that legit would’ve died for her and vice versa #they BOTH understood her and never judged her and loved her exactly the way she was #not to mention root and reese’s love for her even helped THEM bond in a way that made them start to care about each other #i just have a lot of feelings about these three tbh

Company Stan Facts

Big Three

SM:

  • Brought about over half of the pioneering kpop groups just saying
  • Has successful girl groups they seem to forget about like seriously barely any dance practices, solo concerts, or fandom names for years
  • NCT are our new boys and we love them, but really what the fuck is this Neo Culture Technology system were you high when you thought of it SooMan

JYP:

  • Playful with JYP but SM…that’s a no
  • The songs have dances…but do they really?
  • Real PSY stans are in abundance
  • Had to deal with too many scandals at one time protection squads through the roof
  • Equal questioning and love over TOP’s instagram but we all got emotional when he started posting again

  • Taehyun deserved better
  • If they aren’t promoting in Korea, then they are in Japan for who knows how long
  • Support of CEO Seungri

She could almost see herself glowing much brighter than ever. 

And even though it was such a rare occurance, she could remember it very well while he approached — almost as if it was her own light, and not his. That burning sensation, that blinding light. Something lingering in the back of her head, like a feeling, or memory long lost.

She could only trap his light for a few moments. But she always felt that slight connection, as if something was amiss. 

Was he that mysterious, with his blue smile and sweet words? No. Maybe it was just her curiosity towards those moments. But deep down, she felt, there was something else, hidden between the cycles, waiting for them to find out.

There was something about them.

About him.

About her.

She could only wonder. But that didn’t mean she couldn’t enjoy that moment, even if for a little bit.

The Eclipse

I saw @illustraice AU some time ago and got hooked. What an amazing AU! so I decided to make a fanart about it cause yaaaassssss it’s so good ç~ç

SWC in Toronto 19/3/2017 Fanaccount
  • Taemin and Jonghyun’s microphones completely stopped working around Replay. During Replay, Minho and Taemin swapped microphones around, and Jongyu also swapped microphones in between parts. 
  • Key mentioned going to Niagara Falls with Onew. Onew said that the beauty of the falls made him lost for words. Key later also mentioned going to the CN tower with Minho, but they didn’t go to the top because there were too many people.
  • Onew: “In my head, I always thought of Canada as a very cold place. But it’s very hot in here.” <3
  • The music stopped abruptly during Prism. The members were very professional, and tried to encourage Shawols to sing along without music.
  • Onjongtae apologized for the technical issues during a costume change. Taemin looked especially sad about the mic/sound difficulties and kept apologizing :(
  • Jonghyun and Onew tried to get Taemin to talk about his solo, giving him thumbs ups. Instead, Taemin shyly changed the topic to “there are many performances left tonight.”
  • Minho didn’t expect the amount of support/cheering tonight. He was very touched.
  • Key talked about the ‘instagram life’ and that he can’t control what time he has ‘live broadcasts’ on the platform. He wishes to be on there more to interact with fans but that is also dependent on the company. He also mentioned being sleepy due to the jet lag, and apologized for his English (fans were very touched at his attempts!)
  • Key also talked about really liking Youtube reaction videos, often searching ‘1 of 1 reaction video’ and others. He says he couldn’t stop watching them. 
  • Minho talked in English for a while, and then Key talked again, until he said in Korean that he forgot they had an interpreter.
  • A lot of Shawols were surprised at Minho’s English, he improved a lot. Jonghyun would occasionally chime in ‘yes’, ‘let’s go’, but Onjongtae mostly spoke in Korean.
  • Everyone got super hyped during Lucifer and Key said “I see you guys really like Lucifer, huh?”
  • During ‘Ready or Not’, Jonghyun kept trying to step across sound speakers to move closer to the fans. He also stole a towel from a dancer and swung it around. 
  • Minho’s closing remarks (in English!) :
    • Thank you for waiting, thank you for coming, thank you for screaming, I LOVE YOU. 
  • Minho also stayed back/was the last to leave the stage, giving lots of thumbs up and waving to fans.
Of course I fell in love with you, you’re a firecracker. You walk in the room and set off sparks and everyone stops just to watch you shine. Everyone wants you, and I got you. But maybe that was a mistake. Maybe I’m too dull and firecrackers can’t be with dull people.
