i have nothing to say on the matter

An editor’s job is to condense long footage and make it not only entertaining, but also suitable to the target audience. For BTS (both domestic and foreign audiences), Bighit has decided to censor the staff’s faces, curse words, smoking, etc. That being said…

a) Of course there were missing parts, but the truth of the matter is that these Bangtan Bombs are glorified highlight reels. Nothing that I’ve seen in that video implicates an intentional attempt by the company to either edit out or hide something. Without seeing the entire footage, there is simply no way to say one thing or the other with clear certainty. 

b) Yes, there have been incorrect subs from official sources. It’s nothing malicious however; I honestly think it’s human error. And there are always background conversations that are difficult to sub - that’s why they’re often left unsubbed (or maybe they thought it’s not important to the conversation so they didn’t bother to do it).

c) Are you saying that Jimin got those presents for JK as a graduation gift? Because if so, this is the first time I’m hearing this and I haven’t seen any other Korean fans mentioning it either… and we’re usually on top of our shit.

Finally, I just want to remind you and everybody else of this: When I translate background conversations or bring up things that international fans may have missed, I’m not suggesting that these were intentionally hidden or not supposed to be found out by the fans. As a shipper, I’m just sharing stuff that I and other Korean fans may have found interesting. That’s it. Ultimately, how you interpret that information is up to you, but I hope people do so within reasonable limits.

Regrets and Reconciliations

Read on ao3

Alec is sitting on the balcony, staring at the stars when Magnus sits beside him.

“You know, I dated an astronaut once,” he says, casually.

The corners of Alec’s mouth quirked up, “Oh yeah?”

“Yeah, he was nice, built, but in the end he was gone for long periods of time, and it wasn’t going anywhere,” Magnus explained, “But it was fun while it lasted. He taught me a lot about the stars, nothing I didn’t already know, of course, but I indulged him.”

Alec laughed softly, “I’m sure.”

“It wasn’t your fault, Alec,” Magnus said, his voice more serious.

Alec’s shoulders tensed, and curled forward defensively, “You can’t say that—”

“Yes, I can, Alexander,” Magnus said, leaning forward and gripping Alec’s chin, “You couldn’t have stopped it no matter what, and to plot out the what ifs….well, it’s as pointless as counting the stars.”

“I can’t stop, Magnus, I know what you’re saying is true, but the thoughts just…takeover, they won’t go away,” Alec said, a hand going up to grip his hair, and Magnus’ heart cracked.

Moving his hand to Alec’s cheek he leaned forward, “I get that, Alexander, but every time you think that, I want you to remember this moment, under the stars, on the balcony, remember when I tell you, it was not your fault, Alexander.”

Alec closed his eyes, and leaned his forehead on Magnus’, “Okay,” he whispered, his eyelashes fluttering, “Okay.”

“Good,” Magnus said, and kissed his cheek, “Now, come with me to the roof and we’ll have a proper stargazing date.”

Alec smiled, and took the hand that Magnus offered to him.

“Magnus?”

“Yeah?”

“I love you.”

“I love you, too, Alexander.”

For anyone who struggles with any kind of mental illness or sicknesses, I don’t know and I can’t imagine how you feel, but I struggle with a few mentall illnesses and some sicknesses myself and it sucks. But always remember that life is worth living and fighting for, wether believe it or not. You have people who cares about you, people who cherish you and thinks that you matter. Don’t ever let people tell you that you don’t matter or you’re not important, because they are wrong, but nothing could be more wrong than actually believing them. Every one of you matter. Every one of you are important. Even if you don’t believe in yourself now, know that I do. And what I say is what I mean, and I truly and firmly believe in you with every fiber of my being. @markiplier @therealjacksepticeye and @crankgameplays and their communities believes in you and we’re here for each other. Spread the love around and let everyone know how truly loved they are. Thank you for always inspiring me to always to keep on fighting wether it’s for what I believe in or to fight the darkness trapped in my mind. Anways, I just wanted to let every single one of you know how much truly I love you and how much YOU mean to me. #AlwaysKeepFighting

I just had a mental image of Stanley in the living room reading a magazine or something then he randomly hears music start playing and Lefou comes in from the kitchen and starts dancing really badly but Stan loves it and they get up and start dancing really embarrassingly but it's okay bc it's just them and they're comfortable together and they do twirls and stuff with each other and generally have fun and forget every bad thing in the world because this right here is what matters (there's more)

(Part 2) And then they’re sweaty and panting and laughing but the next song comes on and it’s a slow song by Stanley’s favourite artist (ask Lefou and he will say it came on shuffle but he actually queued it and is too embarrassed to admit it) and Lefou acts all flustered and Stan hold out his hand and they slow dance and it’s the cutest thing ever


Bye I’m fucking dead. I literally have nothing else to add because this is so perfect and I am dead.

Hey man just ignore all the hate. I know it's easier said than done when some of their arguments are so illlogical and stupid that u just want to *clench fist* but I find it really calming to just have enjoy the dc related and drown out their noise. I'm sure they will tired out soon anyways. Also I bet they will also be the one watching it in theaters soooooo

I try but it’s really fucking hard. A lot of Them are so ignorant and obnoxious about it and it’s extremely hard for me to walk away from it. I know nothing I say will matter but it doesn’t make not doing it any easier.

i never wanna see this BS again god

Listen, no matter what your fave youtuber/”health guru” says, the following things are absolute bullshit:

  • Juice cleanses do not do anything health-wise! Except probably lead to you getting insufficient calories for the duration! There is nothing to “cleanse”, because…
  • Your body does not have a “build up of toxins” you can detox away. Either your liver and kidneys are sorting shit out, or you’re experiencing severe health problems and should see a doctor. In particular, the idea you have a build up of heavy metal in your cells is ABSURD. Trust me. You’d know. “Toxins” is a word with no legal definition which is therefore not monitored in advertising. It means nothing.
  • Detox/weight loss teas are just mild laxatives. I wish people would stop advertising these things. I know we’re all broke and want that sponsership, but they’re not good things.
  • Something being vegan, gluten-free, “all natural”, etc. does not mean it cannot be bad for you. It does not necessarily mean it is better for you. It just means… it is those things.
  • If you ingest more of a nutrient than your body needs, the rest is wasted. It isn’t used by the body. Unless you have a vitamin deficiency, taking supplements is useless. And expensive.
  • Oh, and for the record, it’s not dangerous but you don’t need “eight glasses of water a day”. A lot of water comes from the food you eat. Also, any liquid that isn’t as strong a diuretic as, say, alcohol? Works to hydrate you. I mean, staying hydrated is good, but the eight glasses a day thing isn’t true. Just drink when you need water.
i finally realized you and i were never meant to last
if we were, we never would have had to try this bad
but i still write you love letters on paper plates and napkins
and on paper from cigarette cartons at work when no one’s looking
i still look back on when we were sixteen and nothing mattered
when i told you i’d have your back no matter what happened
and now i’m telling you to leave and i don’t think it hurts you as much as it hurts me
now it’s all bruised and tired and ugly
but what’s never been ugly was the space you filled in me
and it’s still filled
there’s still a place in my heart that you will always inhibit
i still think you’re a magical human who just happened to make a few mistakes
(that really fucking hurt more badly than i can say)
and i know now that i never deserved what you did to me
but i always deserved you in your sun-kissed glory
and i guess i’m finally at the point where i really do wish you well
i hope you end up happy
but i am so jealous of the girl who will end up with you
because she will be so lucky
—  still wish it was me

I watched The Final Problem with my friend’s 50 year-old dad who is a big fan of the show, who doesn’t ship Johnlock, but who ranted to me for twenty minutes afterward about how the episode had nothing to do with John and Sherlock’s friendship and “that’s all that really matters” and “why would they have Sherlock die for John again in the last episode if never to show that stuff some more?” like…. this guy was appalled at the lack of Sherlock and John together on screen as themselves – Loving each other, however you want to view it. “There were no cases, no deductions, no Sherlock and John…. this doesn’t make any sense” – and this was HIM saying that.  I was just stunned, sitting there bewildered and silent.  

Just a reminder that it’s completely fine to ship Otabek and Yurio.

Listen, there are thousands of ship between two characters that are friends in canon, and there’s nothing wrong about that.

There is nothing wrong about liking the idea of a romantic relationship the same way there is nothing wrong about liking the idea of a platonic one.

I have never seen this kind of discourse around straight ships. Actually, it’s pretty normal to ship two friends. It’s extremely common, and it doesn’t make platonic relationships any less meaningful.

I can’t believe people are actually saying we shouldn’t ship them because they’re friends since, to me, it makes the ship even more endearing.
The idea of them being friends for years and slowly falling in love is beautiful, and I’ll keep loving it no matter what other people say.

Otabek means a lot to Yurio to the point that he became part of his agape a day after they became friends. That’s how strong their chemistry is. Yurio laughed and blushed while talking with Otabek. He was given the attention he deserves, and even the recognition of his strength as a skater.

This is a beautiful ship.
Like it platonically or romantically. It doesn’t matter to me.
But don’t tell us we can’t ship it, because you have no right to do that.

And just because you want to interpret Kubo’s words whatever way you want, ignoring what the translator says, won’t make this ship sink.

If anything, I appreciate this ship more than ever, after her comment on how important their bond is. So much that they wanted to make more scenes for them.

I believe it’s safe to say that, if we get a second season (WHEN we get it), there’ll be a lot more Otabek/Yurio moments.

I know I am a handful.
I need reassurance and sometimes I’m emotionally empty. Everyone has their highs and lows. I’ve been to some dark places, but I’ve been to some heavenly places as well. But I just want someone who chooses me too.
I don’t love mediocrely or half-assed.
I want to love you unconditionally. I’ll always choose you, even if there are days or a time you can’t choose me. I want to love you on the good days, the bad days, even the days where you’re unsure. I’d stay with you at odd hours just to know you’re okay, it doesn’t matter the time, I’ll be patient with your soul. I’ll listen to you, if you’re crying, angry, even silence if you have nothing to say. I want you to be able to tell I love you, but if you need reassurance I want to be able to give you that too.
I want to show you that passion exists within the small things. I’ll fall in love with your little things. Your freckles beneath my fingertips that connect like constellations which forms you into my universe. The color of your eyes, the way they focus and watch me. The curve of your lips, that tell a story. I don’t want to fall in love with you, with the touch of my hand but in fact with my soul.
You’ll be cherished, regardless of your past.
And every spark, flame, or current has a chance to burn out, or to stop. Because love is anything but perfect. And neither are we.
but we can grow together. become better individuals. And if it ever comes to an end at least we took the risk to fall in love. And maybe we found a piece of ourselves.
And I believe you won’t need a holiday like valentine’s day to feel my love for you, because I’ll try my hardest every day to show you, maybe through ink spilled pages, love letters to you of whom I’ve yet to meet. And when we collide, I’ll try not to make it such a cliché.
—  S.S. Ink stained pages of love letters to someone I haven’t met yet. 

mattysandwich  asked:

Oh! What about the inquisition companions reacting to a teenage herald being the victim of a racist slur for the first time in their life, and for the herald being visually upset about it?

Cassandra: Whoever said the slur has made a bad decision. A very bad decision. Cassandra looks between the offender and the upset Herald, and her eyes harden as they slowly turn to the racist. Her fists are clenched, turning white at the knuckles, and they realize they have fucked up. They have fucked up so bad. U kno they ded. After handling the matter, she checks up on the Herald and sees that they’re alright. “I know it’s not fair and it’s not right,” she says, “but hold your head high. You are above them.”

Blackwall: He drops whatever he’s doing and immediately gets in the asshole’s face, intimidating them with little effort. The offender jumps back, obviously thinking that nothing would come of their insult, but Blackwall persists and seems to loom over them. “You need to leave. Now.” he snaps. They take off, and Blackwall turns to reassure the Herald. “Are you alright?” he asks, suddenly softer and worried. “You let me know if anyone ever says that to you again.”

Iron Bull: He stands at full height, towering over whoever said the racist thing, looking down at them with a cold, calculating eye. His shadow looms over them as they look up at the massive, furious qunari. “Do you want to repeat what you just said?” he growls before shoving them down. They scramble to their feet as his hand reaches up towards his ax. The Herald is fairly certain he was just doing it to intimidate them, nothing more, but the look in his eye was enough to make the asshole bolt.

Sera: As soon as she sees the Herald is upset, she reaches for her arrows at holds one at length in her bow. “Say that again.” she dares, glaring. They run off, but that isn’t the end of Sera’s revenge, oh no. The racist in question becomes victim to numerous, merciless pranks, and no one dares to stop her. If the offender is a noble or wealthy, she asks her Friends to help take care of them. Sera has the Herald join her– payback will make them feel better.

Varric: He pulls Bianca out and strokes the wood tenderly, looking up at the asshole calmly. “Do you have a death wish?” he starts coolly. “As soon as I tell the others that you’ve upset the Herald… well, the results won’t be pretty. For you, at least.” The person flees, and Varric scoffs before turning to the Herald, eyes soft. “You alright, kid? Don’t let them get under your skin. They’re not worth it, and you’re better than them.”

Cole: He spends more time comforting the Herald than intimidating whoever said the racist thing. He does want to kill the person who said it, if only for a moment, before remembering that’s a bad thing and won’t solve the problem. As soon as he’s finished soothing the teenager, he tells Leliana. Leliana will handle it and he’ll heal the hurt.

Solas: He thinks little of it until he sees how upset the Herald is, and he feels bad for them, especially if they’re an elf. He stares icily at the racist. “How ignorant and pathetic you must be to stoop to insulting a young person in a weak attempt to soothe your own self esteem. You will never accomplish as much as this da’len, even if you try.” His words bite and simultaneously make the kid feel better. If they try to fight him in anger, he freezes them with little effort, and a careless yawn.

Dorian: He was angry before he saw how upset the Herald was– now there’s pure rage, and it manifests itself in insults, because violence wasn’t an option. He scoffs derisively. “What a pathetic thing you are. Hurling racist insults at someone you hardly know to satisfy your need to feel bigger than someone else? Sorry to disappoint you, but even a demon of sloth is better than you. Now, run along– the spymaster’s no doubt heard about this incident already. Best sing your prayers while you still can. Ta-ta. Good day.” He checks on the Herald immediately after and reassures them repeatedly. “It’s okay now, Leliana will tear them apart for you. Anyone who stoops to such pathetic insults is even more pathetic than the insults themselves.”

Vivienne: They’ve made a terrible mistake calling the Herald such a thing in front of Madame de Fer. She gently puts a hand on the Herald’s shoulder, reassuring them softly, before sizing up the racist and ripping them to shreds with words, much like she did to the marquis the Herald met at the soiree she met them at. After they leave, thoroughly humiliated, she finds out who they are and ruins their career with an easy grace. 

Josephine: She’s actually shocked at their disgrace and dishonorable actions, and she puts a protective arm around the Herald. “I’m going to have to ask you to leave.” she says stonily. “We do not want you here, not anymore, if you cannot be civilized and respectful.” If they resist, she summons the guards to handle them, and frets over the Herald– she wants to cheer them up.

Cullen: “You need to leave. Now.” he snaps, irritated. “We have no room for a racist in our midst. Get. Out.” If they do not leave immediately, he has a soldier or two forcibly escort them out. He sighs and takes time to reassure the Herald. “Don’t let them disparage you. There is nothing wrong with you. It’s them; if anyone else gives you any trouble, you let me know. I’ll have them escorted out.”

Leliana: They either didn’t notice the spymaster standing there or they were too stupid to consider their words. In either case, they have fucked up. The woman’s eyes turn cold and calculating and she steps forward with a serene grace. “Would you like to apologize to the Herald?” she asks, giving them one last chance. If they refuse– she has her agents learn everything about them and she gets to work. U kno they DEFINITELY ded.

Yes I get jealous
Yes I get over protective
Yes I get a little clingy from time to time
And yes I’ll drive you insane sometimes to make sure you’re okay but it’s only because I love you. I love you and I can’t lose you because if I lost you my whole world would be crushed. If I can’t have you in my life there is no point in living anymore. You’re the reason I get up in the morning and why I keep going on the bad days. But there are never really bad days when I have you. You never even have to say anything because just when I look at you it’s like all my problems disappear and nothing else matters except you and me in that moment. So if I were to ever lose you, my whole life would be one bad day knowing I can’t see you to make it better. I will do everything in my power to keep you safe and to make sure that you feel loved and special like you should always feel. So I’m going to be over protective and jealousy sometimes to know that you’re safe here with me forever. And it’s all because I love you.
—  I love you

Building a Better Burger– Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the odd burger or two, but don’t you ever wish that the toppings inside your burger were a bit fresher? Maybe a little more wholesome? Dare I say–nutritious? As we know, most condiments and toppings are processed within an inch of their life. They might have been a vegetable in a past life but they only vaguely resemble them now. It’s a labor of love, but I tell ya’ there’s nothing really like topping up your favorite toasty treats with a few homemade touches.

Both of these recipes are vegan and gluten free, so no matter what kind of buns you eat, or what you eat between your buns; everyone will be able to enjoy a homemade and fresh condiment that might even sneak a few extra micronutrients into that sandwich you’re whipping up.

Ketchup

  • 2 -28 oz cans of crushed tomatoes (low or no sodium)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ of a large yellow onion
  • 3 small cloves of garlic
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup of molasses (you can adjust the vinegar-to-sweetener ratio depending on your tastes; I like vinegar)
  • 1 ½ tsp salt (if tomatoes are salted, use less here
  • ¾ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp ground mustard

Directions: Prepare the vegetables with rough chops, it will all get blended out later. Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker, on high, and left uncovered. Stir every hour until it is reduced to the desired thickness. At least 6 hours, up to 10 hours. Blend the contents once they’ve cooled significantly. If you really feel like going through the Hell of smashing it through a sieve you can, but I really don’t care enough to make that sort of mess in my kitchen. I’m not afraid of a few seeds in my ketchup. Should make 48-60 (1 TBSP) servings depending on how much you let it reduce. I froze half and kept half in my fridge.

Pickles

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 lb of any sweet pepper that isn’t too spicy (I usually use pimientos but there weren’t any, so I grabbed poblanos this time. Red bell peppers would be delicious, too.)
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 3 cups of white vinegar
  • 3 cups of water
  • 6 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black peppercorns

Directions: Prepare the vegetables how you’ll like them. I made coins out of the cucumbers, straws out of the onions, and diced the peppers and garlic. Set the garlic aside for now.  In a large glass jar (such as a flour/sugar canister; it should hold 2 quarts) layer the vegetables and place a few of the black peppercorns between each layer. On the stove, bring the water to a boil. Next, lower the heat to low and place the garlic in. Simmer it for 5 minutes. Then, add the white vinegar and the salt, bring the heat back up to high, and let it boil. Let it boil until the salt completely dissolves. Finally, feed the liquid into the jar. If you have a funnel, use it! Splashing boiling vinegar is bound to suck. Now, cover the jar opening with the lid but don’t seal it just yet. Let it cool on the counter for a few hours before sealing it and placing it in your fridge. They’ll start getting super tasty in a day or two, but I tell you. Once you’re week 1 or even week 2 into your pickles. Holy crap. These should keep for up to three months, but you’ll eat them before then because they’re so frickin’ good.

kai’s interview for esquire korea

trans cr. @ctrIbeat ♡ we have received permission from the translator to post; please do not remove credit or repost

Perhaps he knew dance before his name. Strength over dance, melody over strength, he felt that energy more than anything else. He’s solely innocent, and has an attitude that says there is nothing else in the world other than my body and music, so I’m free. As you follow that one person’s movements out of 12 as if chasing them, there should only be one question. “Do you by chance know who that person is? What’s his name?” After (hearing) this question, I often thought of the name ‘Kai’.


It’s like basic knowledge to know that his name (Kai) is read as the hanja/Chinese character ‘yeol gae’ 開 (he’s used this before when talking about open mind Kai), his real name is Kim Jongin, and the fans think he’s so sexy that they unknowingly call him 'oppa’ and end up overlooking his age to call him the proper noun 'Jongin Oppa’. So that’s not a variety of something you feel, but something you learn. Something like pushing the doorbell before saying a greeting. However, isn’t Kai’s essence a bit further away? Even if that’s a little abstract, isn’t it something to willingly find out about? Because we’re all passing through one time period. I thought of something as I watched Kai moving in front of the camera like a dance. To what point/how far does 24 year old Kai want to go?

“When I dance? First, it’s fun and enjoyable when I dance. I dance almost as if I’m unconscious, but not. I’m not concerned about genres. Since I was young, I danced various genres so rather than only dancing one genre, it’s more like I pull out and use whatever I need when I need it.”

In some moments, it was fine without music. Putting my phone down and watching the scene of Kai dancing was like music. Dance? Ballad? Fast or slow beats? What kind of mood? I don’t think any of that was important. Perhaps it’s possible for Kai to dance in a forest with only the wind blowing? Even to the 'seu seu seu seu’ sound of leaves rolling as they brush against each other. Wouldn’t his body again respond to the sounds he makes if he danced barefoot atop leaves? Like something you can’t stop once you start, as if you’re wearing enchanted shoes. Not a dance that you dance because you promised, but a dance that you dance because your body can’t help but move and draw its own shape. Is that perhaps Kai? Kai indifferently said he sometimes feels something similar onstage.

“It’s not easy to be satisfied regarding a performance. Rather than divide it by times when it’s good (dancing/performing) and times when it’s not, there just are those days. There is also a sense of becoming sharp because my focus is severe. In those moments it feels like I’m in a vacuum state, like I’m the only one onstage, and especially when I’m dancing onstage alone, sometimes I get the feel that every single cell comes to life and moves. It hurts, but because it hurts, my senses become more sharp.”

A low voice. It’s not the sound made by scratching something, but it’s definitely the sound of stepping on the ground. A way of talking that exudes confidence of being able to start running anytime since it’s strongly walking the ground. A 24 year old who laughs and says that he once thought 'There isn’t anything that I want, but it would be nice to just have a practice room at home.’ In times like these, what is the point of growing a year older every year? One person, even before becoming 10 years old, steadily pours in the amount of concentration that another person spends their whole life doing. There should be people who think the achievements of those people are coming early when compared to their age. And people who feel that it’s a bit excessive in according to circumstances. I can say this because I don’t know anything. Kai first started dancing in 3rd grade of elementary school.

“I vaguely remember it. I went to a private jazz dance school. I can remember up to the point where I sat in the back with my dad and watched. But they (his family probably) say I started dancing from the very beginning that day. They say I went out (to the jazz school) whether it rained or snowed following that day. They say I went to the jazz school everyday. And I was very happy while learning ballet. I think that’s when I started to love dance.”

What difference is there between now being unable to remember the moments of elementary school student Kim Jongin whose body responded and experienced, and EXO’s Kai who was so concentrated that he can’t remember anything once he gets offstage after a performance? Is that not perhaps truly the moment when Kai came to enjoy his own performances? Is that not why he danced and sang like that, then and now? Has time passed quickly in remembrance from the moment that child who loved dance became an SM Entertainment trainee to the time he became part of EXO? Behind the moments we are cheering, who else can estimate the weight of time as 'Jongin oppa’ knows?

“Dance is (like) food. When I look back, it’s chaotic. Dancing and singing are things that I’ve been doing everyday, so I don’t think that they’re lacking. However, I do think that I am lacking in life itself. Since I don’t know how to do anything apart from that (dancing and singing).”

The numerous question marks that emerged upon seeing Kai in front of me disappeared in the end because of these words. Words that are ordinary but hard to keep, words that only a person who achieved through concentrated experience can say. It’s also the language of someone who always looks back and makes a great effort not to stagnant. Kai also said this.

“When I’m satisfied, it’s like I stop there. There were many times when I felt stagnant since I was a trainee. Wow, times when I really wouldn’t improve. But in order to overcome that, I just practiced without a word and at some point realized that I improved. I’d say 'Why can’t I dance this dance?’ abd move on to another dance, but when I go back to the previous dance, I can do it easily. There were things like that. If I practice without an answer, it works. If I dig without an answer, it also works.”

Nowadays also, on days with no schedules, it’s consecutive practice and practice. Because he wants to sing better, lately he’s practicing Miguel’s 'Diamond’ (I looked it up and I think he means a Rihanna/Miguel mashup called 'Diamonds/Adorn’ by Travis Garland). He’s singing the cover song by Travis Garland as a guide. “My teachers are probably really annoyed of me. I really bother/pester them. Because they need to teach me.” This is why even among EXO’s fanclub 'EXO-L’, the hearts of fans who love Kai are undoubtedly just. January 14th is a day scheduled to spend together with the fans to celebrate his 24th birthday.

“I like meeting the fans. I think my fans are a bit similar to me. Our sensibility is strong, and I think there are many (similar) sides like that. It’s something I am very thankful for. I’m happy. I think I’m all set if I’m happy.”

'Even if other people compliment me, if I say no, it’s no.’ Wrapped in the ability to cross Asia and the world, he doesn’t even feel the stimulus of others. He only gets angry at himself when something is stuck, when something is stagnant, or when an idea won’t surface. Living a life that is exposed on a scale that is hard to estimate, Kai is strong and says he doesn’t know anything else, but happiness alone is important.

“Happiness itself is the joy and driving force of living life. I think obtaining that (happiness) is no different from obtaining the world.”

The eyes of people who know how to speak like this do not waver. There is no reason to wander or avoid either. It’s just a straight line that’s stuck as is, an energy that is strong with the force to break through yet also harmless. Maturity is like a gift that finds you by passing age or transcending, and Kai’s time flows without any anxiety/worries. Standing straight even alone in this shining state.

Hamza Yusuf is trash and it took for another White man to put him in his place and say that Black Lives Matter. His statements at the RIS about the BLM were extremely irresponsible. And this is what I mean when I talk about how Black Muslims go through so many battles. We have toxic influential public “Islamic” figures who use their platform to denounce BLM and bring up Black-on-Black crime, something they wouldn’t even understand being from a Non-Black community. Furthermore he studied in Africa so why the hell would he denounce BLM…He’s TRASH, there’s nothing that can justify his toxic words, he just needs to apologize and try to make things right, but I for one won’t be supporting him at all.

but wait i have even more things to say

i see y’all in the memeufacturing tag, so happy that august turned out to be an abuser. because you disagreed with their opinions, because you thought their jokes were annoying, whatever reason. fuck you. abuse is no laughing matter. it ruins peoples’ lives. you are being insensitive, callous, and cruel. i can think of nothing more callous than being genuinely relieved someone is an abuser because you thought they were annoying or had bad opinions.

you disgust me.

getting drunk with Jimin

- when i say a pro, i mean like he could win an award
- he handles alcohol like it’s nothing
- but that doesn’t mean he’s some god when he’s drunk
- there’s two sides to him when he’s wasted
- flirtatious fuckboy, or quiet observer
- when he’s being a fuckboy, you have to step in and calm him down
- when he just sits and observes everyone, he’d like you to sit with him and keep him company
- he’d openly share his thoughts with you, no matter which “drunk jimin” he is
- fuckboy: “y/n im not gonna lie, i want you so bad” “you look so fucking sexy” “i can’t wait to be inside of you tonight. fuck, i can’t wait”
- observer: “look at tae, do you ever wonder how he’s always so happy?” “how is namjoon so smooth?” “jungkook is such a tease, look at him with that girl. he’d never actually do shit with her”
- he has a high alcohol tolerance, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t experience hangovers
- he just gets extreme migraines, and is a complete baby during his hangovers
- though he can take care of it himself, he loves your company and your offer to help

So, this is All I Ask by Adele that Holster is singing. So I looked up the lyrics, and can I just say that this is such a sad!Holster song with We’re Graduating Soon!Holsom feelings!

Seriously, look at this:
“I will leave my heart at the door
I won’t say a word
They’ve all been said before you know
So why don’t we just play pretend
Like we’re not scared of what’s coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

I don’t need your honesty
It’s already in your eyes
And I’m sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?”

😳😭

I’ve been reading mixed opinions about Sonja and I just want to say something myself.
Some people say they can see where she came from when she said what she said to Isak. And I mean, I get that. I get that she’s been by Even’s side through good times and bad times and that she might love him still, in her own way. Personally, my issue with Sonja is that she was literally patronizing towards both Even’s mental health and sexuality and it made me uncomfortable. No one should speak like that, not matter how much you think you know about someone and not matter that you feel entitled to do so because you’ve been knowing this someone for years. Also notice she’s just a couple of years older than Isak - two years are nothing and everything at the same time, especially at that age and in that situation. She had control of the situation over Isak, she was in a position of power because she knew, because she can say ‘I would have told you so if you listened’, because she’s seen Even having episodes before. And maybe she just genuinely thinks what she said. And I mean, as I said I can get that, I can get that even though I disapprove (also you have a kid looking desperate and on the verge of crying in front you, at least I don’t know, lower your voice or something)
What I don’t approve of, is people pointing out that she deserves respect for sticking around. Sometimes certain people can do more harm than good and just because they “stick around” it doesn’t mean it’s good you know? She talked about Even in a really condescending way and I don’t like it. She sounded like his carer, and I don’t like it. Even doesn’t need her o Isak to be his carers, that’s literally what therapists are for. He needs a lover who loves him even when things get bad, who is willing to fight for him and let him know love can absolutely happens despite mental illness. That he is worth of an happy ending, that he doesn’t have to hide that part of him anymore. Even said multiple times Sonja was too controlling/condescending and I get that she was worried and all, but Even doesn’t like it and can you all stop thinking he was saying that just because of his mental illness? He clearly struggles with how much power she has over him. She was probably full of good intentions but still acted wrongly and it happens in real life all the time.
