tagged by @taehyxngs  thank you,so much !  sorry this took long , i do like being tagged, i promise i do

RULES: Tell your followers 11 random things about yourself, and tag 11 people in return! Tag backs are allowed, but you mustn’t repeat any of the facts mentioned previously! The facts can be absolutely anything! Whatever springs to mind! 

1. I love photography. Ever since I was a kid, it’s always been something that has intrested me. Throughout the years I’ve owned maybe three or four cameras. In the grand scale of things three or four camera isn’t alot, but they hold memories from different stages of my life and I really appreciate having them.

2. English is actually not my first language. I learned English when I started going to school in the United States, about ten to eleven years ago. 

3. I joined Tumblr in Summer 2015. It’s almost been two years. I don’t even remember when this turned into a kpop/bts blog, it just happened one day. Because of this fact, I love going through my archive from the earlier months.

4. I love reading and writing. I want to start writing again, the way I used to. I stopped a few months ago, because it stopped being fun. But  being on this website really made me miss it, so hopefully I’ll start writing again.

5.When I was in middle school I learned to read music and I learned to play the flute. I really want to learn to play piano 

6. I have really bad anxiety, and I hate it to much because it stops me from doing so many of the things I love. It’s also lowered my self esteem. 

7. Because of my anxiety I am quite reserved.  I am too afraid to say the wrong thing.  I keep everything in, which is very unhealthy.

8. I had very bad experiences with friends, which is why now I tend to be more cautious when selecting who I spend time with. 

9. Alexandra is my middle name. It’s what everyone calls me. I really dislike my first name.

10. I am 157 cm tall, so I am  on the shorter side.

11. Dope was the first BTS or KPop song  that I ever heard.

feel free to ignore, sorry i am not very intresting 

EDIT/OP’s NOTE: Thank you to everyone who has received my post well. Just before you decide you have an argument/point to discuss, check here, here, here and here. Or it might simply interest you to read. :)

As someone who grew up in a country with a diversity of different cultures (including the Indian culture), I just want to say that Jonghyun did not mock them - that’s almost how all Bollywood movies are like, and if you’re someone who isn’t exposed to them, then maybe you’re just being butthurt and/or self-righteous by making a huge deal out of this - but yes, he still shouldn’t have, in the words on people nowadays, ‘appropriated’ that culture in any way.

That aside (and no, I am not saying Jonghyun is right or fine to do that at all, that is a different discussion), he has already issued an apology.

This was pretty much the first thing he addressed since his concert ended. He didn’t wait and decide to speak up after the series ended. He didn’t let SM or his managers speak for him. He could have easily done all that - let SM represent him or talk about this AFTER everything, but no. He took it to his Twitter on the first night of the concerts and apologised himself. He realised he’s wrong and even assured that that bit will be taken out of the video. What more do you want from the man?

Okay, maybe someone found it really offensive or insensitive, and you have every right to be upset. You can point it out and tell him about it, but you have no right to bash him after he’s publicly apologised. You don’t get to put him on a pedestal and destroy him when he took the time to explain that he knew he was wrong and he would not make such a mistake again.

We are all humans. He is as much a human as you are. You are, by no means, superior to him just because you’re socially aware of such issues. Not everyone gets the same exposure. Everyone is ignorant in some way, and different races/countries/cultures perceive things differently. For example, in America, because of its history and racial diversity, you might learn that joking about skin colour is wrong, but in some parts of Asia, it’s perfectly normal to joke about it. 

For Jonghyun, he grew up in Korea. Maybe this wasn’t something he learned while growing up. I don’t know, but maybe. I certainly wouldn’t if I didn’t grow up in a racially diverse country and didn’t have Indian friends. Yes, the world is global, but everyone grew up with certain ideals and beliefs, and you need to be aware that just because it applies to you doesn’t mean it applies to someone else. 

You preach about the need to educate and to fight for what’s right. Yes, you’ve done that. He is aware and has admits that he’s wrong. Just because he’s an idol doesn’t mean you can go on and on about how he intends to hurt people or etc. He’s an idol, yes, but it doesn’t mean he naturally knows about everything and everyone.

To those who are hurt by what he did, you have every right to be upset. If you feel like his apology isn’t good enough, I’m sorry, but what do you expect him to do? Go down on his knees and beg until you forgive him?

He’s an idol and an adult, and I think the fact that he spoke up about his mistakes himself, at the first moment possible, is commendable. It speaks a lot about who he is as a person. He’s a human, like all of us. Everyone makes mistakes. Can you honestly say that you have never been accidentally/unintentionally ‘racist’ at some point in your life? How would you like if people bash on you even if you gave a sincere apology about a mistake you did not intend to commit?

We all know him. He’s a sensitive soul. Do you honestly believe he’s done this on purpose? He apologised. Give him a freaking break. He’s a human with feelings. Don’t be a jerk just because he’s an idol whom you expect to be a ‘PERFECT’ role model. Nobody is. People learn and change. 

Let’s make a point shall we?

The Main 7 movie cast vs. show cast in Google Image search

Let’s start with Clary:

Okay let’s try Fairchild:

Jace:

Okay let’s try Herondale:

(okay Dom has some serious catching up to do but he’s still closer than Isaiah)

Moving on to our lovable nerd/vamp,

Simon:

Onto the Lightwoods, 

Isabelle first:

Alec:

(yes we all expected that, and it was acknowledged so here have a fucking cookie)

Now that I’ve awarded you for stating the obvious let’s move onto a canon man of color

Magnus:

And then we have our amazing Alpha wolf

Luke Garroway:

Hmmmmmmmmm 🤔

Maybe Lucian Graymark??? I mean it could be my error since that is his true name. Let’s see:

OH WOW!!!!! Ummmmm I wonder why that is? 

I’m so shocked by this (read not shocked at all)

Keep making excuses if you like. I gave you the receipts, all the proof is here. Hate me for it if you like I don’t really care, this isn’t about me. But realize there is nothing to argue anymore, stop trying to find excuses and do something about it. If you can do it for the other characters you can do it for Luke. Isaiah is a blessing, please notice his hard work and love for the character. 

Thank you!

Just a friendly reminder...

//Hi everyone! Just a friendly reminder that if you are wanting to use a cosplayer’s picture on another site, please credit them and ask permission!! I’ve recently seen my pictures being used on an app called iFunny:

…and it isn’t just me. Many other cosplayers have had their pictures uploaded on here. It’s made them uncomfortable. It’s made me uncomfortable, especially after reading the comments and the rps that happen because of my pictures. 

If you would like to use my pictures for anything, don’t be afraid to ask me! All I would really ask for is credit and the link so I could support it as well =7= Please please please understand that I am a real person and I do put lots of hard work into my cosplays. Not only that, but the photographer is also affected. 

Thank you!

Obi-Wan Kenobi Has Never Had a Damn Day Off

Anakin’s Force Ghost: [watching very loud TV]
Obi-Wan’s Force Ghost: [sitting next to him, wearing glasses and reading a book called Coming to Terms With Your Traumatic Life]
Luke: [staring at them, annoyed] You know, eventually one of us is going to have to go talk to him. 
Anakin: [still watching TV, disinterested] …talk to who, son? 
Luke: …Ben, dad.
Obi-Wan: [smiling] Why, I’m right here, Luke. And you can talk to me any time. 
Luke: You know who I’m talking about, Obi-Wan. Knock it off. 
Anakin: …don’t sass your Obi-Wan like that, Luke. 
Luke: [shutting off the TV] GUYS. BEN. DARK SIDE. LITTLE HELP HERE. Are you seriously just going to sit here and watch soap operas while the universe goes to hell again?! One of us has to try and talk some sense into him! I think it should be one of you. 
Anakin: [immediately] Not it. [looks at Obi-Wan]
Obi-Wan: Ohhhh, no. I’ve put in my time trying to make people in this family see reason. I’m not helping that brat. It’s bad enough Leia gave him my name. 
Anakin: …there you go! He’s Ben, you’re Ben….you’re his, uh, Great Uncle? Just give him that face you always used to give me when I did something stupid. 
Obi-Wan: [makes a face]
Anakin: That’s the one! There. See? You already know what to do. You’ve got this. 
Obi-Wan: [defeated sigh]

Okay like. In canon, it is repeatedly stressed that Holmes does not have romantic feelings for women and is incapable of it. It’s an essential part of his character template. He doesn’t feel that way about women. Saying, Oh wait but he could be bi or pan or something! might sound open-minded and flexible, but you’re just insisting that a man who repeatedly said he is not attracted to women MUST be attracted to women. That’s homophobic. Got it? Some men are not attracted to women. It’s just that simple.

“I know sometimes you feel like you can’t fight, and I know sometimes you feel like you just can’t love yourself. When that happens, I want you to remember that you’re enough. You’re enough as you are, and I’ll try to remember that I’m enough as I am.”

its 2 in the morning and i’m having de Rolo sibling feels, so now the rest of you have to as well.


Vex notices things. It’s just what she does, a talent she’s honed over many years of trying to keep her family alive (which has only grown more difficult as her family has expanded). Vex doesn’t even usually have to be looking for something to notice it. Little details ignored by everyone else leap to her attention and she decides whether or not they’re important.

Consequently, Vex sees what Percy is going to do well before he does it. She sees it in the growing smirk on this face and the way he inches closer to Cassandra while she’s talking to Kerr. She doesn’t say anything because it’s not like Vex has never done it to Vax before, or vice versa. It’s just playful sibling teasing.

Cassandra is usually more attentive but she’s only just woken up so she notices a moment too late, eyes widening and taking a half step back before Percy engulfs her in a massive hug. Percy is absolutely covered in blood, sweat, grime, and probably even a bit of dragon egg goo, and he drags Cassandra into his chest, lifting her off her feet and rubbing his cheek against her head with a grin.

Cassandra squirms and curses, “No, no, get off of me, you bloody -” while everyone else either snickers or starts past them towards the baths.

Vex covers her mouth to hide a laugh, even as she can’t help but notice that for all of her protests, one of Cassandra’s arms has snaked around Percy’s shoulders - not pushing away but simply holding. The other is clutching Percy’s upper arm in a white knuckled grip and she isn’t doing much to get her head away from Percy’s. And Percy, Vex knows, is exhausted. Even just holding Cassandra, a slight girl by anyone’s definition, is making his arms shake. It wouldn’t be hard for a slippery thing like Cass to get away from him.

But Cassandra doesn’t leave Percy’s hold until he sets her back down (gently, even with his arms trembling). She wrinkles her nose at him in disgust and shoves at his chest (gently as well, though even that sets him rocking back on his heels with how tired he is), which in no way stops his teasing grin.

For a moment, Vex looks at the de Rolo siblings and sees not the intensely damaged barely-adults they are now but the children they must have once been, trailing mud across the stonework and horsing around in the foyer.

It’s only for a moment though, as Percy tells Cassandra, “I know I am owed for much more than that.” It’s admittedly a depressing thing to bring up, but he says it in a breathtakingly fond voice and Cassandra cannot help the way her mouth curves upwards, even as she rubs fruitlessly at the dirt Percy has transferred to her.

Vex would give anything to see both of them stay as happy as they are right now.

Percy turns back to Vex, still smiling, though it’s turned soft rather than playful. Something of a shame, since Vex thinks playful is a rather good look on Percy.

“Shall we go see if all the baths are taken, darling?” Vex asks, because she has never assumed she could keep a secret from Cassandra in her own home.

“Mmm? Yes, we should.” Percy doesn’t blush but Vex thinks it has more to do with him not getting the hint than a good poker face.

Behind him, Cassandra rolls her eyes and waves them off.

Vex grabs Percy’s hand and drags him in the direction of the baths. With their lives as full of tragedy as they are, she’d like a chance to see that playful look on Percy’s face again sooner rather than later.

Fortunately, Vex is full of ideas and very good at playful.

Team Bonding

-The Paladins find themselves in a planet that resembles earth
- It’s winter so they go to the closest spot where it hasn’t snowed
-Lance keeps bitching that his Hispanic ass wasn’t made for these conditions which prompts Keith to state that if anyone should complain it’s him who spent time living in A LITERAL DESERT LANCE
-Meanwhile Allura starts asking what snow is because????
- So Pidge and Hunk go on to explain snow
-Pidge being very technical while Hunk states “its beautiful, white, and cold” and then keeps interrupting Pidge (he doesn’t mean to be rude but Pidge is just being oh so technical) and brings up snow angels, snowmen, SNOW BALL FIGHTS, etc.
-So now Allura’s like I need to see this snow you speak of to determine if it’s a threat or not
-Shiro smiles and complies by telling the others to be prepared to travel again
-After every paladin tells their stories with snow(yes even Keith and Lance, especially the big snowball fight, the one where Keith knew who Lance was for .2 seconds and then forgot again) they decide to camp for the night
-Because of how distant the castle is Allura gets to sleep in one of the lions and Shiro tells the others that wherever she decides is hers, you evacuate and give her the space she deserves with a look
-For some reason she’s been bonding with red lately, forcing Keith to sleep somewhere else
-He automatically disqualified Pidge because they aren’t that close, Hunk is out because he would probably force Keith to take the cot and then proceed to sleep on the floor, and Shiro is just a big giant nope, the man either goes to sleep at 9pm sharp or doesn’t sleep at all
-So that only leaves Lance, who sure, will give him grief but in the end won’t really mind
-Once he reaches Lance, he finds him trying to hide his tears and sniffles
-After some time of awkward comforting Lance tells him how the last time he saw snow it was with his family and he’s just homesick
-Keith then proceeds to tell Lance that it’s okay, that if it weren’t because he’s an orphan he would also be homesick… it takes him a while to realize how that came across, and then starts trying to backtrack and just becomes a stuttering mess, all red in the face
-Lance the starts to laugh which stops Keith in his tracks
-Lance goes on to explain that he can count in one hand the amount of times Keith has lost his cool
-They fall asleep cuddling with identical goofy smiles on their faces
-They both wake up with a start when they hear a roar and when they finally scramble outside they find that it had snowed during the night
-Pidge screamed (read as squealed) that there had to be at least 8 inches of snow
-When Allura came out she squealed in delight and proceeded to run out into the snow only to yelp and run back to the lion
-She had made the mistake of going into the snow without shoes
-After everyone woke up and put on the proper clothes they began to play in the snow
-It then escalated to a huge snow ball fight that included captains, strategies, and bases
-By the end of the fight (which Allura was wining tbh) they found that no one knew where Keith and Lance were, only to later find them kissing under blue
-And that is the story of the first Snow day they had as a team

You know, I think season 2 of Yu-Gi-Oh GX is by far, the single strangest season of Yu-Gi-Oh ever.

Like, season 1 is fairly standard YGO fare in terms of having a bunch of ‘get to meet the cast’ episodes and the a ‘keep the dangerous artefacts away from the villains + powerful sealed monsters arc’

And season 3 is the massive 180 tone shift, but at least the weird shit is consistent.

Season 2 is just, weird. I mean, on the surface it seems simple enough, a crazy cult stats brainwashing everyone at school and Judai has to stop it.

Things that happen in season 2-

  • We meet a 14/15 year old Batman wannabe.
  • And his friend the fortune teller who can see the future.
  • The fortune teller is also the head of a cult.
  • Actually, the real head of it is the primordial entity controlling him.
  • An entity which exists solely to destroy the universe.
  • It also brainwashes anyone who loses against it.
  • Unless you have Dino DNA.
  • Because, apparently bone grafting a dino bone onto one of your own will give you dino-like senses (???) which makes you immune to the mind control powes of this entity.
  • Aliens
  • The protagonist ends up on another planet/world after being struck by a comet
  • Where he duels a robot
  • The aliens are actually duel monsters
  • That were created by the protagonist
  • The return of the duelling monkey.
  • This has no bearing on the plot at all, never comes up again and is basically a clip show episode in the form of a fever dream had by the delirious protagonist. (the monkey isn’t the fever dream, it really is there)
  • A trip to Domino City that serves as a great big Battle City nostalgia trip
  • Yugi’s grandpa apparently put together a book about the events of Battle City and sold it. Also we meet him too.
  • Including having the protagonist, mini Batman and a couple friends getting stuck in a virtual world.
  • One friend is a car the other is a dino in this world.
  • A creepy, possessed doll
  • One character discovers his sadomasochistic side, and develops an electrocution kink.
  • And a leather kink.
  • Hastily shoehorned in tournament near the end of the season b/c it’s not YGO without one.
  • The protagonist drops out of that when the plot rears its ugly head again.
  • The return of the Winged Dragon of Ra.
  • And more Battle City flashbacks, this time ft: Y. Malik
  • World destroying laser satellite
  • Being utilized by the aforementioned primordial entity
  • Which is stopped by an alien duel monster spirit and the powerful dino spirit of the guy with dino DNA who fly into space to destroy it(I I swear I’m not making this up)
  • Also some epic foreshadowing for the third season.
A Letter To Sarada

Dear Sarada,

By now you must be around 9 years old. I’m sure your mother has raised you well these past years. I wish from the deepest parts of my heart to be there with you every day as well. Unfortunately, I can’t. Life doesn’t always give us what we want, Sarada. But life is good, you’ll learn many things as you grow older.

About a year after you were born, I had to take off on a mission in order to keep the village safe. More importantly, I had to keep you safe. You were too young to remember something like that, but your mother and I knew we had no choice. There are sacrifices that we as shinobi must take.

I knew from the moment you were born that there would be many times I wouldn’t be around. Although you were just a newborn, I told you this.

I told you I would understand if you grew to hate me for my absences, didn’t trust that my feelings towards you and your mother were true. I wouldn’t blame you to resent me. Regardless, I knew I would do anything in my power to keep you safe.

I hope to be home as soon as I can, though it still may be a couple years.

Until then, I hope you keep me in your heart, as you are always in mine.

All my love,
Papa
