i love that louis and harry arent afraid of writing the reality of their situation because they are human like everyone else dealing with a shitty situation like, “yes this is hard, yes we argue, yes we are stubborn, yes this is fucking stressful, yes i hate every single thing we have to do to hide us when we dont want to” but they both still have so much fucking hope “we can get thru this, i love you, you are my home, im going to keep doing my best to make this work, being with you makes all the hell worth it, just keep holding on with me” and like fUCK I LOVE THEM ITS NOT FAIR THAT THEY HAVE TO BE GOING THRU THIS FOR SO LONG AND THE FACT THAT HE PUT IT ON THE ALBUM AFTER WRITING IT SO LONG AGO !!! HE STILL FEELS LIKE THAT AND IM JUST IMA MESS GOD
Halloween has come to The Void! Put on a costume and have a skele-fun time exploring the town. Be on the lookout for candies and other goodies, it wouldn’t be Halloween without a chance to trick-or-treat your self. Be sure to stop by the witch’s cafe for some delicious pumpkin pie and hot apple cider, I can assure you that friendly gal doesn’t have resting witch face. Come have a dream of this unboolievably spooky town, I hope you think it’s as gourd as I do~!
I asked Blizzard support about whether or not Genji has genitalia.
It was a joke but I decided to actually ask Blizzard support if they know! :P
Here’s their answer. It was SO cute. Thank you Blizzard for such great customer support, even if my question was dumb. Maybe this will bring some light into Genji’s lore. Who knows.
Hello there! (^_^)/)
Happy to meet you! Picture for a moment the thrill of overcoming a difficult boss with your friends at your side. That is the feeling I wish to get you back to today. :)
Hmm I am not sure about this one. He is definitely cyborg and has to be able to sense injury so it stands to reason that in all the machinery are still nerves and there are bodily changes that would occur if he didnt. From my understanding of the lore it was his torso that was damaged which makes zero sense to me if his legs are completely robotic, which makes me think that maybe they arent. The machinery might help him walk and feel again, but everything is likely intact. My guess is his legs are under the leg armor and that it was really his spinal cord being severed that caused him to need robotics from the waste down at all, so that he can feel and walk again. These are all just deductions I can make based on what I know. I hope this helps!
As a general life rule, I believe in treating everyone as a friend or family member and I hope that came through in my work. If I can grant your request, I always will. d=( ^‿^ )z

Why Namjoon isnt accepted in the krap scene (and why thats a good thing)
unpopular opinion and confession
*****im not saying all krappers are like this btw chill ur dick
***also butthurt ppl dont come at me saying YEAH YOONGI TOO bc i shall make a post about him too i didnt forget about yall, always coming into namjoon rap posts and making it about yoongi
****My intention of this post is not to diss your
faves or rappers in general. This isn’t a post that has the intention of
throwing shade I am simply expressing my respect for an artist.
I never really respected a lot of k-rappers. I do like some songs because they have a good beat but respect is something that an artist should earn. I respect rappers and groups like epik high, verbal jint, and tiger jk for influencing the krap scene for the good.
I wont touch on american rap but the krap scene is so generalized. Like hey have fake gold chains and a bunch of girls while I rap about shit that doesnt make people feel better about themselves with lyrics that i didnt even write. Many generalize culture, rap about degrading others, and you know all that shit. But let me tell you: RAP stands for RHYTHM AND POETRY.
Listen anyone can have their different perspective on poetry and maybe to someone “squad shit it g ma” is the most well thought out poetic verse that they have heard.
But rapping all started when people were in pain, when people were in dark time period in life and spilling out their feelings through rhyme made them feel better and got them out of trouble. I`m not saying you need a depressing life story to be a rapper (you dont need a chicken to recognize an egg) but rapping is way more than some beats and a snapback, its a coping mechanism, maybe not always for the artist but definitely the audience.
I sound so old when I`m saying this but rapping isnt just talking fast, its a lengthy process of finding strong and meaningful word play, to beats and rhythms which compliment eachother which is then it put together in one song almost like a prayer.
and don`t come at me with the WELL I LIKE HOW IT SOUNDS, because these days i swear to god ANYONE CAN BE A RAPPER, and thats how it shouldnt be.
They get others to write songs for them, songs usually have no smart wordplay or meaning and just talk in slightly faster pace. (i definitely find rap flow and speed a plus point in rapping).
Rappers who arents even all that shit get praised and recieve so much attention and go on judging others just bc their not AS famous.
(random thought i really dislike smtm) Rapping isnt a childsplay. Common korean rap communities like smtm etc are extremely trashy to me.
In 2015 during bangtan`s vacation Namjoon released his first mixtape (legendary) which proved his ability to write lyrics in both english and korean, write lyrics about depression happiness life hope etc, he made a damn song DISSING rappers who only have flow and lyrics that don`t make sense AND SPAT BARS SO FAST IM LIKE BOI BREATH, he teamed up with a western artist and recieVED EXTREME APPRECIATION IN THE AMERICAN RAP SCENE.
If you don`t know he started rapping at 13 because he was going through a really low point in his life. He then started writing HIS OWN lyrics about his feelings and educated himself in hip hop and rap culture (he listened to a lot of nas and tupac what a man). He then joined an underground rap team which he gained skills like free-styling and flow (BOY CAN RAP SO FAST BRUH). But definitely his raps are extremely smart. He uses so much worldplay their almost like a riddle you need to figure out. Not only that he can rhyme and compose and has the qualities of a true rapper who IS PASSIONATE ABOUT MUSIC HE LET DOWN HIS FAMILY TO BE A RAPPER DESPITE HAVING SO MUCH GRADES
AND EVEN AFTER ALL THAT HE GETS DISSED IN THE KRAP COM-
Like when someone would think of k-rapper they would think Zico, Gd maybe, Jay Park, Dok2 (and if you are fans of common krappers thats okay) but I honestly feel as if rappers like them are so common. To me they don`t show anything exceptional. Its like comparing Eminem with Lil yatchy (you can like either and thats okay) but Eminem did his own thing with no influence from the stereotypical culture. In shows like SMTM or unpretty rapstar you definitely see the rap community come together and Im like boi why isnt joon there he can own yall asses.
Namjoon however is on a whole different level. He does in own thing without the influence of popular culture (which refers to his message in his song DO YOU). He raps about things that are special TO HIMSELF and doesnt care about others opinions. He never thinks about what others might think of his song or what he should do to catch the attention of the audience. He does what he likes to do and goes with HIS gut.
Namjoon is a special snowflake and I dont want him to be thrown in the *oh look another korean rapper lets put him in smtm and not let them grow as an artist* pile bc I feel as if thatll take away his authenticity.
I`m kinda happy that Namjoon doesnt associate himself with common rappers because he is way better than that. He strives to collab with artists of his choice, his taste, and doesnt go for popular or common people.
Like you know what I`m trying to say. Imagine an exceptional student who isnt really popular among the folks. and all the students who get like c`s or b`s are extremely praised and popular.
Don`t get me wrong despite getting SO MANY opportunities like 4 features in official songs from other groups (one being korean hip hop legends MFBTY), being in the 4 things show , performing at multiple festivals individually,etc. I really don`t feel as if he reached the legendary rap title yet. He definitely was close to being “part” of the community as in 2014-2015 his rap career was highly active but is on the low now as a individual.
I appreciate Bangtan as a group and all the contributions of all 7 members but since BTS is a group who produces their own music, one member can`t just go off making MVs while their writers do the job for their (cough cough, bts dont got writers they got mean namjoon) I know he is busy writing for bangtan, producing beats, and a whole lot of shit for the group and he is happy with doing that but that also takes away time from doing his solo rap career AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT.
He doesnt care of not being able to produce music all the time to the likings of krappers. He cares about Bangtan. He knows his potential and doesnt need to highly promote in order to prove his worthiness. He can promote small mixtapes or covers for his armys and he is content with that. His intention isnt to get famous, as he always says: i do this for the music not the fame.
He does his own thing and doesnt worry about the drama. He is too good for them. Someone who is beyond expectations doesn’t mingle with people who are popular. They dont worry about irrelevants. They just keep on focusing on themselves and how to grow.
I can`t wait to see him become so well known as a rapper (he already is so high up in his journey) that everyone who looked down on him now want to be him.
Namjoon is a person who expressed that their isnt a right wrong with hip hop just passion
warnings: swearing (surprise surprise!), uh angst? fluff?, mention of genitals/nudes ’,:) it’s like pg-13 dw, incorrect grammar, shitty writing, i say “you” WAYYY too much even tho it’s an x reader and thAtS the PoiNt

You always thought that whole ‘soulmate’ thing was bullshit.
You thought that whenever you found random things written on your arm it was your brother playing a weird prank on you.
But then ‘the talk’ came…
Because no one really addresses soulmates, it’s a private thing. You found out your parents weren’t soulmates when you were a kid so you know it’s a sensitive topic for them and never brought it up out of respect.
Once you learned about it, you realized your soulmate had been trying to talk to you for a long time and you never responded. Then you continued not responding because 'what if they thought I was rude for never writing back?’ even though, most of the time, it was just little notes to themselves.
So ever since then, you’ve been petrified of writing on yourself. Just the anxiety of the potential rejection from the one and only person the universe thinks you’re perfect for was enough to make you not even want to touch a pen. You’ve been told it’s irrational but isn’t the whole thought of soulmates irrational?
But then, as you were about you get into bed, big letters started to appear up your thigh.
The police in the state of Espirito Santo in Brazil is in “strike” (which means they wont work)
The police wont work.
You all probably know about Brazil’s fame with violence. This is like that movie which all crimes are legal during a day but worse because who knows when they will start to work again.
I’m not from Espirito Santo but I’m scared for them. I cant hope they are safe because they ARENT. Oh my god, this is so fucked up, shit.
BTS reaction to their s/o (the reader) being pregnant
Sorry it’s taken us so long to do this :)
Thanks for the request; we hope you like it
He came home to you saying she needs to talk to him and the first thing that popped into his mind was that you wanted to end your guys’ relationship but when you told him you were pregnant he’d be so happy that he would actually start crying.
‘Wow, I’m so so so happy right now, you don’t even know’
When you told him you were pregnant he was in a state of shock, you both knew that it wasn’t exactly the best time for it to happen, he said he needed some time to think things over making you get nervous be eventually became around to the idea and started getting really excited for the baby.
‘I think that even though it’s not a great time, we’ll make it work just fine’
You wouldn’t have to tell him you were pregnant, he found the pregnancy test not so well hidden in one of the cabinets in your bathroom. When you go home that day he asked you if it was true or not or if it was a prank, but when you confirmed it was true, he’d be so happy and pull into a huge (but gentle) hug.
‘I’m so happy it turned out to be true, I can’t wait to start a family with you’
Your best friend would accidentally let it slip that you were pregnant, he’d rush straight home to ask if it was true or not, he was 100% hoping it was true, when he got home and you told him you were in fact pregnant he’d just burst into tears but he’d also be low-key upset that the wasn’t the first person you told.
‘This is great jagiya, but why wasn’t I the first to know?’
As soon as the words ‘pregnant’ left your lips he’d be happy but considering the fact he’s busy and he’s never home he’d be hesitant about it but after some time he’d come to his sense and support you through everything and would try and be with you every spare second he had.
‘I’ll be with you as often as I can jagiya, don’t you worry about it’
He’d be hella excited, like as soon as you told him he’d be on the phone to all his family and friends letting them all know that you were pregnant and that he was becoming a dad, even random people in the street would be told, he was just so thrilled about becoming a dad and having a mini version of you guys running around.
‘WOW! JAGI, I’M SO EXCITED!! EVERYONE IN THE WORLD MUST KNOW’
Since he’s young he wouldn’t know what to do, he’d be scared as hell and really nervous but since he’s going to become a father he’s gonna have to mature so he did the best thing he could do and support you through everything and be with you whenever he could and all in all become a good dad to his child.
‘It’ll be really scary jagiya, but I’ll be there every step of the way jagi. I promise’
OH MY GOD I HAD SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS Iloveshirosomuchokay//cry
This was inspired by this AMV by @viktorthicciforov and the song Champion by Fall out boy in general. But like I found the song through their amv and I listened to this song on repeat the whole 10+ hours I worked on this.
I really hope you all enjoy this ;u; (and no the lyrics arent perfect order either)
the myth that all autistic people are math and science geniuses is harmful bc it excludes autistic people who arent and prevents them from getting the help that they need and tells them that they “arent really autistic”
stop expecting all autistic people to be able to be physics and calculus masters at the age of 9
autistic people can be good at reading or writing or history or art or anything or nothing at all
stop making rules for our abilities and denying our autism because we dont meet your expectations
