I just….. want b.a.p to be happy. i jsut want to bake them a cake of happiness and sunshine and tingly fingertips and warm crackling fireplaces on winter nights and soft bedsheets and the doorbell when the pizza delivery person arrives and the soft early morning chirps of birds outside the window and the feeling of making a new friend and the feeling of laughing about nothing with a long-lasting friend and the smell of a bakery and the sound of rain at night and the passion coursing through you when you sacrifice your sleep at night working on a skill you pride yourself in and waking up the next morning tired but glad and family hugs and kitten nose boops and making a baby laugh and having a positive impact on a child’s education and worldview and spreading goodness and peace where you go holy shit I can’t even bake that well but I hope they know i love them enough to [youngjae voice] do my best
Here on tumblr we’re comfortably throwing around (and taking in) ideas that stretch the mind, and attempt to cross the boundaries of society confines and stereotypes. Which is cool, but sometimes it can get a bit… detached from the actual real world that we’re trying to change (but still, lardely, haven’t, cause change is hard, if not impossible.)
So, basically, tumblr-land can be miles away from the whole rest of the land. It’s important to remember that this is a place of ideas, but not of the realization of these idas. That happens in the outside world, the real world, known also as
Immediately you’re going: “Oh no, don’t ruin it. Don’t expose it to THEM. THEY don’t get it.”
But they must. Just whining to each other on here, although fun, won’t change anything. Going out and doing stuff will.
So, let’s do an experiment, shall we?
(Trust me, I’m a physicist.)
Let’s take this (amazing, if I say so myself) idea: A reverse retelling of Jane Eyre.
She is the one with the sercret, mad spouse hidden somewhere, thirsting for her flesh.
She is the one who wanted to grasp that little glimpse of happiness with another man, even though she knew if was forbidden.
She is the one who has to be set on fire (both metaphorically and literally) before she can be free of her demons.
She is the one who needs to be rescued from the horrors of her own life, and they both have equal flaws and good things to bring to the relationship. (In the book, Rochester needs to be freed of his wife, but other than that he’s supposed to bring more to the marriage, not morally, but materially.) In this reverse story, they are equals morally. Although she’s still kind of poorer, so that stays the same, as do a lot of other things, (because Charlotte is a genius and that story is already waaaay ahead of its time, and people would probably hate SO much on it because of feminism and stuff, but they can’t cause it’s a classic and you go, girl.)
What if he, in reverse, has had a sad, emotionally abusive childhood, and has lived a dry, melancholy life? While drownig in riches (nice contrast there).
What if he is the unspoilt one, has never given his heart to any woman, nor has be promised marriage to one, although he’s had women salivate after him for years?
What if he is the one who has to come back to her in the end, and find her ruined, and promise to her that she is more worthy of him now than she ever was?
What if he has to rescue her morally and emotionally as much as she? (That’s the only thing that doesn’t happen in the book, Jane is the moral anchor throughout, and he’s trying not to drown in the sea of his sins. But what if she is a sinner too?)
What if, in short, the roles are reversed? What if the woman is the one with the guilty secret? Is she then worthy of love? Do we even dare to consider it? What if the man is left bewildered and wondering if she likes him AT ALL, and asking her to trust him with her secrets, and left at the altar (or near it)? What if he is the second man in her life (the non-virgin antitrope -is that even a word? Now it is) but she the first woman in his?
What if the man, for once, is not the one in need of emotional rescuing, but does the rescuing himself, even though he isn’t qualified to do it? But he becomes someone who can lead them noth to a stronger moral standard. He isn’t the rescuer, but he BECOMES the rescuer. Because there’s nobody that will save him, if he won’t do it himself. That’s what I’m talking about. What if he is their only hope of ever working things through? What if she is good and kind and faithful, but maimed? Ruined? Is it good/romatic/relatable that he should want her at all? And is she in a place to even be attracted to him, after what has been done to her?
What if they are both ruined, the girl as well as the guy?
Well, I’ll tell you what happens then.
People don’t GET IT. Most people. Some do. And yay. But most don’t get it. (Or if they get it, they don’t like it.) Ewwwww why isn’t she pure? Ewww she’s married, I don’t read books about girls like THAT. Ewwwww that’s not a heroine, that’s a *** Ewww why would he want her? Ewww Eww Ewwwww
In case you don’t realize what I’m talking about yet, it’s not ok for a woman to have a dark secret, to need rescuing, to not hold herself to a higher moral standard. All the things that make us go “my poor baby” for Rochester, would make us go “ewwwww” for Jane.
That’s gender swap in the real world, my friends. How do I know that? Because of this. I did it, you see. I did the experiment. And I am thankful every day for people who GOT the story from the first second, like @tea-books-lover@velutluna@pagesfullofstars@celebangel@bassguitarwitch and soooo many others who beta-read, reviewed, or just plain encouraged me with this outlandish idea.
Because, let me tell you.
I’ve gotten hate. (The ewwwws we were talking about, see above. So many EWWWS)
ewe? close enough.
I’ve even seen people read the synopsis and go, why would I read a book about a heroine like that? I don’t read books about ruined heroines.
People message me (most of them don’t dare post reviews) telling me they loved the writing but WTH? I reply, it’s reverse. They say ewww the heroine isn’t pure. I say she’s like Rochester, he isn’t pure. They say well, yeah, but he’s a guy. It’s ok for the man. That’s not a Jane Eyre retelling (A LOT of them don’t even get that. They don’t even recognize the Jane Eyre plotline or the characters once I swapped the genders. I mean it when I say it’s a different world out there, you guys. People have no idea. No. Idea.) I say -I usually say nothing, or just bye, but if it’s a nice person who wants answers, I reply- it’s the same story, governess goes to work for rich dude, mad spouse, fire, impossible love, morals, wedding stopped, the works. But it’s reverse.
There’s even lines in the book that are a direct nod to the masterpiece.
“You are my bright angel.”
“You can be mended, if once you were ruined.”
“Take off your mask, little ghost.”
“You tranfix me quite.” (Ok, that’s a lie, I didn’t put that last one in, just love it.)
in lieu of a review, you’re my favorite thing in the world, person). And if I can do a TINY BIT to bring about some change in this world, then:
1. Books are the way to do it (or one of the best ways, subtle but powerful), I really believe this, and history backs it up.
2. I am proud and happy and blessed.
3. I don’t mind the occasional thick head trying to push itself into my inbox. Maybe it’s the sign of someone trying to wake up. Or refusing to wake up. But you know what? Something made them almost wake up. And if that something was me… then that’s all I can ask for.
Anyway, I jsut wanted to share a bit of my experience on “the other side”, which something actually went out and did in real life. It changed me in so many ways, and I really hope it might have changed someone else too. Even the littlest bit.
I always reblog reverse story ideas, and now you know why they’re so close to my heart, but I wanted to share my story of actually going out and DOING THE THING. You should always do the thing, even if you’re scared. Also, if you’re scared, I’m here. Talk to me. I know about scared.
Which brings us to:
Read read read
Then write write write.
Learn the rules, and break them. Like Charlotte did. Like a boss.
Let’s keep writing new things, let’s break the rules, let’s be respectful and educated, and then let’s think outside the box. Let’s RUIN the box (see what I did there? Pun, anyone? No? Ok.)
Jin “I know, baby. All of us know. Now, get your boyfriend/girlfriend over here, we’re having dinner together. I want to know that person who thinks they’re good ennough for my little Y/N.“
He doesn’t care about your sexual orientation, even if you were in love with the carpet. “There will be hard times. Just remember that I’m always here for you.“ He would try to make you relax by telling you his experience with a partner of the same sex.
Hoseok „But we’re still best friends, aren’t we ?“
You tell him that of course you’re still best friends. He jsut screams in happiness, knowing that he has a best friend who is gay.
Namjoon „Sweetheart, I knew it from the moment I met you“. he’d confess. “Now tell me something I didn’t know before. Like, do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend ?“ , he winked at you.
You however still stood there, trying to process how useless it has been to try and hide it from him this whole time.
Jimin knew that you had a rough time and something bothered you for quite a while now. He knew it took you all your guts to tell him you’re gay. “If someone is going to make you feel bad about it, tell me. I’ll beat them up“, he assured you, ruffling your head.
He wouldn’t make a big deal out of it. “I’m always up for a threesome, just to let you know“ , he grinned, nudging your shoulder.
He would be happy. Not because you’re gay, but because you trust him enough to tell him. He would try his best not to make things akward between the two of you. “Invite your boyfriend/girlfriend over. Let’s play videogames together.“
((All jokes aside, thank you for over 600 followers!!))
emotional blurb below but tl;dr is that if you ever wanna rp with iso or show iso some love just @thesinnabun (aka me) or @blackhats-cameraman so that I can see it!! (tho if u wanna rp just send a tumblr im to thesinnabun
You guys have absolutely NO idea how happy and emotional I am right now! Iso was made as a fucking joke because at the time Cambot wasn’t revealed and I just wanted to make a clever pun like Alan does with his characters
and NOW? ? ?? HOLY SHIT??? Not only do my friends like him but YOU GUYS DO TOO?? ?? AAA??? I’ve even seen some people reblog it in a tag they made JUST for Iso and i”m JSUT SO HAPPY ???
LIKE YOU GUYS LIKE HIM! YOU GUYS REALLY LIKE HIM!!!
I have to thank @themcnobody who is the best artist ever for letting me hire them to do the art for this blog, and I NEED to thank @goshenart and @0sodaa for drawing him for me when i first made him and ALSO I NEED TO THANK @nightfurmoon AND @circateas FOR ALL THE MOTIVATION THEY’VE GIVEN ME!!! AAAAAAAALKS
Ah, congrats on 800!! Your art is so cute and you're so talented, you deserve it. Could you draw JD (and, if you don't mind, Dan Domenech version? But that's only if you don't care, any JD would be super cool to see from you!)?
Thank you so much Anon ♥
I LOVE JD SO MUCH BUT I KNOW HE BELONGS IN THE TRASH AND–
hey i jsut wanted to say thanks for stressing the platonic relationships in your art via the tags.. it sucks we have to do that in this fandom but im always happy when people do it
It certainly sucks, especially when I see it reblogged and tagged as romantic against my obvious wishes. All my art is platonic and it will stay that way, I assure you. Though it doesn’t seem to stop the shippers, I will be continuing to mark my art as platonic and upload it for you guys to enjoy. Thanks for appreciating my effort anon! I won’t allow shippers to destroy my platonic fluff
hi! I've been curious...what's your stance on this whole Reyna Discourse from Rick's recent tweets? the way I see, he really could've worded it better. I also understand why people feel offended/upset, but tbh I don't think Rick would intentionally want to hurt anyone. but how do you feel about it? (ps: I'm sorry if this question bothers you... it's just a lot of the fandom feels angry and conflicted about this :/ )
Hi yeah, so, I’m sorry, but my opinion on this is not really an opinion on the matter itself but on the discourse in general. And I don’t want to get to huge on this, so my two cents are pretty simple.
I think it’s all stupid. I think people should stop arguing about it with the fandom and especially stop bugging Rick about it. Reyna is a fictional character. Imagine her being whatever you want. That’s what’s so great about her and what’s so great about how Rick wrote her. She’s not set in stone like Percy and Annabeth, who were basically meant for each other since the beginning. She’s not like Leo and Calypso or Nico and Will, who were kinda oddly paired together kinda for the sake of everyone getting paired off towards the end. Reyna is a free character with any possibly number of open endings. She can be whatever anyone wants her to be. Just because Rick said she was one thing doesn’t mean she can’t be another according to you. But for the love of god stop telling other people that she should be this or that because you want her to be and forcing your views on the fandom in a negative way. Can we please stop arguing about it and causing discourse in the fandom and with the writer, and just be happy that Rick gave us such an amazing and wonderful character that we can bond over and give her so many lovely head cannons. Thank you.

((Ya know, the bullying here is really not cool, anons. It's like talking to wallis about his father, or telling petunia she's not a good mother. Both those situations WERE NOT OKAY and I really don't want to see more anons here being bitches to assistant here. I mean, I know they're fictional characters and all, but from what I can tell, it effects the real people behind these blogs as well. There's a difference between asking about things, cause this is an ask blog, and downright bullying.))
((ACTUALLY SEEING THE FIRST TWO ASKS ABOUT PARENT SIN MY INBOX MAD EME REALLY HAPPY AND I ASKED THE DISCORD TO SEND MORE HATEFUL THINGS THAT WOULD BREAK ASSISTANT! I'm evil I know. but no, I'm just fine! if you took the “break from the internet” as me jsut needing to get away it wasn’t, my friend was just wanting to play some games and I did too, plus it was perfect timing!
some of my FAVORITE THINGS are writing broken characters! frankly it has to get really really upsetting for me to react at all, and even then I’m grinning maliciously through the tears! bad things and hurt characters make for a great story and even if they do hurt my feelings, it hurts them int eh way reading something really sad or seeing something super sad on tv, not actually hurting me!
also, @askwallisgloom wanted me to let you know they’re great with you guys trying to destroy Their muse as well! if something bugs us we’ll just delete it so don’t worry! Muse=/=mun!

You know. Nadia being overly happy 24/7 really freaks me out. I mean my god her Dad is fused with his Robot son & she just sunshine, lollipops & unicorn farts.
I don’t think she knows the details about her dad’s demise and current fate, jsut that he died. Besides, a big part of her character is subversion of typical “traumatic backstory means the character is brooding loner all the time” - Nadia has a lot of reasons to be sad and upset and she indeed can be when she wants to (see her reaction to seeing news reports of Civil War II in ANAD Avengers or just last issue when the Grapplers got on her nerves), but she chooses to have a more positive outlook in life.
Requested by anon. I hope y’all like this I tried to make it as accurate as possible casue I’ve only watched one episode from the show. Enjoy!
“Hello, i’m (y/n) i’m 24 and I work as a tattoo model”
You introduced yourself at the camera like the stuff asked you. When you first got the offer to be on we got married you wanted to decline it, but then you thought of it as an opportunity to get your name out there but maybe to make a new friend, your husband.
“Where are you from?”
“My dad is Japanese and my mother is Italian. My mother went to Japan for vacation and she met my father”
“Why did you agree on coming on the show?”
“At first I didn’t want to do it, cause i’m sure i’m going to get a backlash but then I thought it would be nice to see how’s the married life”
Since you were a tattoo model you had a pretty strong image. You liked doing photoshoots with a dark and strong theme, it was fun and it payed your bills, you did photoshoots all over Asia but also in Europe. Because of that people had the thought of you as a sexual and kind of bitchy person and you wanted to give them a taste of a different (y/n)
“What do you think of marriage?”
“I grew up in a diverse home. But even till this day my parents love each other, they always make jokes, they go out on dates, they help each other so I grew up in a house full of love and I want that for me, I want a man to love me like my father loves my mom”
“Can you describe the husband you would want?”
“The funny thing about that is that people always think that I want a scary looking dude, but honestly I have a soft spot fot the softies. I want a man that’s kind of cute and gentle, kind of like a bear”
“Hello, my name is Woo Taewoon, I am a rapper and i’m 26 years old”
He said and then broke a big smile like he always does. Coming on We got married was always something he wanted to do, Taewoon wanted to get married but he never seemed to find someone that was worth that much of commitment.
“Why did you come on We got married?”
“Marriage for me is something that I always wanted, and I was a fan of the show”
He replied honestly. He always to find a good woman that whill hold him, he was always scared that the females he met wanted something, maybe see what doors he could open for them.
“What’s your ideal type?”
“I want a woman that will accept me for who I am, to be honest with you I don’t ask for much. I don’t care about background or something like that, I think the more complicated the better cause she can keep me on my toes. I jsut want a woman that will love me and someone that will be there for me”
Since it was Winter the stuff arranged to make you two meet at a ice skating place. You loved ice skating so you wear very happy, you dressed with a lot of layers and of course you wore your favorite grey scarf and your black beannie. You put on the ice skating shoes and you expected a lot of people to be ther, but there was none
“Did you close it up for us?”
You nodded to yourself and you slowly stepped on the ice. You started running around and doing tricks you knew, trying to keep your mind off from who is he going to be.
“Is she here?”
“Yes,she is waiting for you”
He quickly put of the shoes and stumbled a few times because of his rushing to meet you. He was a bit scared but mostly excited. The staff had already informed that he was here so you had stopped ice skating and just leaned back steel lines that were around the ice skating ring.
You smiled brightly at him, as relief washed over you when you saw his cute chubby face. You went over to him and stopped just right in front of his tall frame
“I knew exactly who he was and I was very happy he was standing infront of me. Y'all know exactly what the hell you’re doing”
“Hello i’m (y/n)”
“Nice to meet you, I’m Taewoon”
You shook hands and you both jsut stood there for a couple of minutes.
“Well ummmm… do you know how to ice skate?”
“Well then let’s go”
You said and started to smoothly going around the ring. You could tell he was struggling a bit, so you decide to help him, you went behind him and placed your palm on his spine to straighten his back
“Chest out, legs straight and try to make a v line with your feet as you skate around”
You instructed him. Your touch caught him a bit of guard but he didn’t complain, he just let you do your thing.
“Yes, left and right… there you go, it’s not that hard isn’t it?”
You skated around and joked with each other for a while, trying to break the ice but you decided to take a break and go sit down.
“So, what made you come on this show?”
“I’ve been single for a long time and I always wanted to experience the love my parents have with a man and this felt like a good idea for taking baby steps into a serious relationship”
You were honest. You didn’t know why but you felt like you could tell him anything and he would not judge you, which was a major plus since you were worried about what your “husbands” personality would be like and if you would be okay with him. Taewoon understood exactly what you said, he could recognize the sincerety on your face and the tone of your voice.
“What about you?”
“Well I always loved being in a relationship and having someone that I will care for and they can support me, but as time goes by it gets harder, especially with all the things that have happened on TV”
“I was so pissed when you got eliminated, you deserved to be choosen, that was fucked up”
It was true. You felt very strongly about the injustice that happened on the show, you got legit mad and you even posted a video on snapchat about it, cussing myundo out as teh camera focused on the screen when they announced him as the one that was choosen.
“I appreciate it”
“This is going to be great, I’m so happy this is happening”
My girlfriend is the cutest girlfriend ever... and here is why
First off her eyes. Like oh my god have you seen her eyes?? THey are so gorgeous and brown. The different shades just take my breathe away and I never get tired of looking at them.
Her face its self is just… gahh so pretty. My vocabulary does not extend to the descriptive words that would fit. Its just so happy and cute and full of light i jsut wanna take it and kiss it.
Then just her as a whole its just other wordly. I just wanna hug her and never ever let go. Like….. full on koala mode. And i wana hold her hand and i want to be sappy and i cant wait to tackleher the first time i meet her. She better bring a crowbar because there is no other way i am letting go.
