all of u out here with ‘yeah bts did well but let’s not forget that without tvxq, big bang, etc etc they wouldn’t be here’
guess what?????? no one’s forgetting them. we all know that the reason any of the groups now are known outside of korea is because shinhwa, h.o.t, sj, tvxq, big bang, wonder girls and psy invented the hallyu wave, as it’s called. bts (and other groups) grew up with these idols as their inspiration, so yes, we can’t forget them. no one’s forgetting that super junior went big in china, or that tvxq went big in japan and that’s how the newer groups have it easier in these markets.
let’s be real. what bts has achieved is something no group has done before. please stop trying to take credit for what they have done just because you think your group or fandom is superior. fact: everyone thinks their fandom is the best. bts’ marketing strategy to have an active twt account and youtube channel since before debut is one thing that worked out extremely well for them. couple that with other things such as writing socially-aware lyrics, producing and composing their own songs, having kick-ass choreographies and showing off their dorky sides on social media, you can’t say that they didn’t deserve to go to the bbmas just because your faves couldn’t.
bts broke boundaries that weren’t broken before, just like YOUR FAVES broke boundaries that weren’t broken before. older idols didn’t even have the full use of social media to promote themselves, and YET they broke into the asian market. bts had it, and they broke into the global market. just because they had the advantage of a better technological era doesn’t mean that they didn’t deserve the win. it just means that they used their assets very well, and deserved it even more.
moreover, as the rolling stones said, bts write lyrics about loneliness (whalien 52), having a difficult time in life (lost), female empowerment (21st century girl), being confident in yourself (cypher pt 4) and so many other songs. this makes them relatable to not just a teenage fanbase (although yes, that is the majority), but an older fanbase as well. the catchiness of their songs makes them popular amongst the pre-teens. so you see, they have their reasons and validity for being where they are now. they deserve their fans, wins, and attention.
therefore, before you go around saying that fans of bts need to respect what older idols have done, know that we do. we appreciate everything that has been done in the past that has made bts the successful band that they are today. but also know that we are proud of our boys, and that we will celebrate and rejoice. so for some reason, if that makes you bitter, by all means use the advanced technology we have today and mute us.
because no, we’re not discrediting your faves. but we’re asking you to credit our faves when they deserve it.
They’ve heavily implied if not outright stated that they want a dog/’forever home’ together.
They’re openly going on cute holidays and dates together.
Their creepshot war has turned into a mutual “appreciate my husband” campaign.
Just everything they do shows how they’re each other’s ‘forever-person’ and they want us to know it.
Meanwhile, the Phandom is:
Excited of course, but not surprised.
Happy for and supportive of them.
Embracing all the changes that are happening.
Not overanalysing things the way we used to, and in fact have predicted a few things correctly this year.
At its most chill in general.
Basically a lot is happening and while one would expect us to be losing our shit completely, we’re actually being pretty cool about it in comparison to how we could be, meanwhile our love and respect for DnP is only growing.
I’m not saying this is a sign, but Alex is in the UK as filming for the Christmas Special is about to begin. It starts the first week of June… um… yes she has family there and it IS summer time, which means, well, you know, travel and fun, but but but but … if she’s not in the special at least let her be doing more big finish :))))))))
I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.
With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.
They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.
So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.
They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?
I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.
does anyone else just keep wondering who barbara gordon’s mom is gonna be bc every single one of jim’s relationships end up turning out horribly and it really is not looking like he’s going to have a child any time soon
As sorta hyped as I am for Season 5…I do wonder what the story will be. There’ll likely be some action with mopping up the Dragon Hunters, and dealing with the Edge. But I really don’t think there’s much STORY left to tell. Viggo and Ryker are (hopefully) dead so there’s like two or three episodes to wrap up the D Hunters for good. There’ll probably be an episode about Hiccstrid stuff which is fine I guess, as long as it’s relevant and it isn’t just blind fanservice. History points to the latter.
Sidenote: If they bring back Viggo or Ryker they will cement this show in its inability to change or alter the status quo in any way because the writers are pussies. And that will REALLY piss me off.
I really gotta stop making doodles based on Ser.vamp discord chat shenanigans. Sorry everyone ahaha. But @ino-fujiwara here’s us and our boy/fave. Posted just for you!!!~ Cause you liked it so much! lollololl Love and protect him always~💚💚💚 (and only occasionally make him suffer, like you said. FIGHT ME.)
Hahahaha YES! I’ve actually seen so much Moniwa love on my dash lately and it makes me soooo haaapppyyyy!
YOU KNOW WHAT I AGREE. I THINK HE IS SMOL BUT POWERFUL. Well, smol compared to most of the v-ball boys, we’re the same height actually ಥ‿ಥ. I’m honestly picturing a Daichi/Moniwa arm wrestling match where Moniwa keeps winning and Daichi is like “HOW IS HE DOING THIS” and the Dateko team is just sitting there all smug. Moniwa is a sinnamon roll and I love him to death.
I wanna kill myself, I’m not going to; but I wanna just stop being me and having this miserable life and actually do things I like and actually being happy all the time and not just pretending to be and crying myself to sleep every night and I just want to stop everything and it seems like everyone at home just hates me and they’d be better off if I never existed so I just wanna die or just stop living my life (or at least my current one) and live a happier one without my parents piling shit on to the shit I gotta do and I just, I just want it to stop
when ppl send rude anonymous messages do you just… expect it to get answered like its 2012 n everyone will white knight the recipient. is that how u get ur attention or do u jack off to the thought of someone getting real caught up on a message that just says “kill yourself”
