i laughed so hard during that part

Went and saw Beauty and the Beast, and I just had to share my experience because it was so pure?

So, like, I get into the theater, find myself a nice spot smack dab midscreen, which is WAY EASIER without thirty people traipsing in behind you in a group, lemme tell you, and I’m just sitting there, by my lonesome, scrolling tumblr and watching whatever weird stuff they’ve got on screen, and a family comes to sit in my row, which was the only empty one not right in front of the screen. Sat down what I thought was a seat away from me until I saw a little girl in an adorable ass red dress climbing over mom and dad to sit next to me. 

Totally fine. I was just off of center and they got to sit right in the middle of the screen, and when she finally gets settled this little girl looks up at me, with a soda half her size in one hand, and somehow both popcorn and candy in her tiny little lap, and she stage whispers to her mom:

“She’s by herself!”

Mom looks embarrassed, but I smile and wave off the apology. 

I go back to my phone, only to realize someone is tugging at my sleeve. Little girl looks up at me, all wide eyes and curiosity, and holds out a napkin filled with popcorn and chocolate. Like, I remember being a kid, and I remember how important candy and popcorn at the theater are, and I think she thought she was saving my life by offering this sustenance.

I almost fucking cried guys, kids are the best.

So I take it and thank her and let her talk my ear off for a few minutes until she needs a drink because she has been talking SO MUCH her mouth is dry. This kid is going places, guys, I’m telling you right now, because she picked up that cup the size of her torso like a champ and angled the straw just right and continued to try to talk to me around her gulps.

While this is happening, on the other side of me another mom and daughter sat down, and, turns out, the girls know each other. I’m guessing, based on the gumption of Red Dress, that they probably met in the lobby before they went into the theater. 

Girl number 2, I’ll call her Princess Dress, because it was a fantastic dress and when I told her so she proceeded to point to every princess along the neck and name them and give me their Stats, proceeds to have a conversation across me with Red Dress.

Both sets of parents were looking like they wanted to bury their heads in their hands, but I was having a blast.

Anyway, eventually lights go down, we get into the movie, and for the most part Red and Princess were content, although every so often Red made sure to pass me a handful of sticky half-melted chocolate. 

Watching a live action version of a movie that I watched for the first time when I was their age was a fuckin’ trip, man. Like. I got super emotional over things I didn’t expect to, and during the wolf scenes I was actually mildly distressed, because Princess was gripping the hand rest so hard on my right I thought she was gonna break it. Any scene I laughed or snorted at got a peal of laughter from my two new best friends, so hopefully no one has to go home and explain why I nearly snorted out my drink during “Be Our Guest” when they went for a visual gag for “After all miss, this is France!”.

During the ballroom scene, Red turned to her mom and whispered “The Beast is handsome!” and it took so much for me not to lean over and whisper back “Girl same.”

But my favorite, MY VERY FAVORITE part of this whole experience was when Gaston shot the Beast - FOR THE THIRD TIME HOLY HELL I KNEW IT WAS DARK BUT GODDAMN THIS IS A KIDS MOVIE ISN’T IT - Red patted my arm because yeah, okay, I was maybe crying a little, look, I know what happens but the movie made me feel things okay. Anyway, she like, pushes herself up in her seat and leans in close and she goes “It’s okay. He’s gonna be okay.”

The point is, children are so pure, and everyone should always watch movies with strangers.

[TRANS] BTS Official Fanclub A.R.M.Y 1st Term - Interview (P3)

(the interview is from 2014)

do not repost/screenshot without credit.

Q: It hasn’t been that long since BTS debuted but you have released 3 albums already. Is there any moment when you feel like “Ah! I’m going crazy!” while preparing for the albums? 

V: For me it’s hard and it leaves regret with every album. When I finished recording and listened to it, I would regret “I should have done better, I should have put more emotions in”. But once the recording is finished it can’t be redone… This part always makes me regret, so it was hard for me. 

Jin: There has never been an easy album for me but during ‘O!RUL8,2?’, from a few weeks before recording until the album’s finished, my cold wouldn’t go away. Especially my voice wouldn’t turn out the way I want it to be, so it was hard for me both mentally and physically. 

Jimin: It’s ‘N.O’ for me too. I don’t know why it was that hard. 

J-hope: Yeah, Jimin had it hard that time. 

Jimin: My parts got a little longer than the previous album. (laughs) I think I was pressured by that. 

Rap Monster: Really? Everyone chooses ‘O!RUL8,2?’. For me ‘2 COOL 4 SKOOL’ was really hard. Because of one song… I talked about this in another interview, but we had to modify the same part of the lyrics more than 20 times. I think I sold my soul at that. Just thinking of it… (shakes head) They kept telling me to change it so one day I got so furious. I couldn’t shout out loud because I was at the studio, so I went to the park alone at dawn and plugged in my earphones and shouted loudly for about an hour? Afterwards the introduction was written and things went well. Wow really, that time I wrote the lyrics while hanging on the chin-up bar and shouting until I nearly cried. 

Suga: Well, writing the lyrics was hard that time. I looked through my mail box recently and I sent an email with the subject [No More Dream - lyrics modification - Suga 1] like this, and it advanced to 27. Looking back at it made me think “How did I do it.” 

Jimin: That time Hobi-hyung went there for a while too. (points up to the sky) 

All: (laugh) 

J-hope: (laughing) It was really hard in ‘No More Dream’ days. 

Rap Monster: Those days were scary. The psychological pressure and the anxiety of whether or not it would be okay coming out like this. 

V: Every time we do one choreography move, we had to match even the angles of the fingers. 

J-hope: We still focus on the performance now but back then when practicing the choreography, if someone didn’t match even just a little bit, we would sure be staying up all night that day.

Suga: The real hard thing at that time was that during trainee days, the members who had longer training period would lead the younger ones in everything, but then they said we were going to debut, none of us has ever debuted before. 

All: (laugh)

Rap Monster: We can talk about it now but it was very scary back then. 

Suga: It was really terrifying. (laughs) We scraped up all our worries and stayed up all night thinking about it, we even discussed what to do just among ourselves in whispers because we were afraid the younger kids would hear it. 

J-hope: We’re talking about it while laughing now but back then, just thinking of it brings in the fear. 

Suga: Now it became like “Let’s write even if just one more line of lyrics in the time we spend worrying!”. (laughs) The album that made me nearly scream “Argh!” is the most recent one. Even if I didn’t get hurt in the middle (of preparing the album), I wouldn’t think we would be this short of time. 

Jungkook: Me too. I have this regret like “If only I have some more time to prepare”. 

Suga: Right. Actually if I didn’t get hurt we wouldn’t be tight on time, but I was hospitalized so we lost 3 weeks. I finished the recording just right before mastering and we barely passed. I aged by 10 years. (laughs) 

Rap Monster: That’s right. As the time’s fixed, we had to follow the year-end award ceremonies schedule and went to the studio at dawn to work, we can’t throw away the quality factor with the excuse of not having enough time. 

J-hope: But I feel like it’ll slowly become harder as we release more and more albums, because of the lack of time. Actually rather than not having time, it’s because we’ll want just a little more, just a little more time to make better and cooler music. 

Rap Monster: We have to raise our standard. We have to gradually raise the quality. 

Suga: But if we say something that’s scary to say like “We didn’t have time” to the fans, it would disappoint them, so we should refrain from saying such things. 

Rap Monster: I think it’s the parts that we could have done better. Instead of letting them know that we have worked on it like this, I hope to tell them that “We have put in a lot of effort.” With each album there are more of those parts that we wished we had done better, but I think it shows that our view in terms of music is slowly broadening. 

Suga: I think what Rapmon said is true. Back then I thought I just need to rap well, but now I have learned to think of the details more. 

J-hope: You can say we’re really growing up. 

Q: How did you feel when you listened to the 3 released title songs for the first time? 

Suga: I listened to the song thousands of times while working on it so I thought I wouldn’t feel anything fun when the mastered song came out, but I got deeply touched like “I worked hard on it and it came out!”. 

J-hope: There was a time before when I wasn’t aware of it while practicing ‘No More Dream’, but one day it suddenly came to me “Ah! This is it! It’s good!”. 

Jimin: (laughs) 

J-hope: I got the same feeling with ‘Boy In Luv’ recently too. 

Suga: You have that feeling this time too? 

J-hope: Didn’t I say it? (points to Jimin)

Jimin: Out of nowhere! At the studio! (laughs) 

J-hope: I went to the studio and I suddenly had a feeling. Jimin was there at that time so I told him “Hey Jimin, hyung thought about it on the way here, I have a hunch about this!”. 

Jimin: Right. (laughs) 

Rap Monster: You can’t trust Hobi’s hunch. 

J-hope: I really had a feeling. (laughs) Trust me. 

Rap Monster: I’m the same as Suga-hyung. I didn’t feel anything while working on it but when it’s finished and I listened to it, I had this proud feeling “It finally came out!”. Especially when I listened to the mastered version of ‘N.O’ on speaker and the “good house, good car” part came, I thought “This is it!”. 

Jungkook: The “good house, good car” part was the best. 

V: It was really mindblowing. (dancing the choreography) 

Rap Monster: And I had a real feeling this time when listening to ‘Boy In Luv’. Not like “It’ll do really well!”, but I feel like this can become BTS’ second starting point. I think letting people know that “BTS is this kind of singers!” is the most important thing. Actually I want to show these kinds of things through this album too. 

Jin: When I first listened to ‘No More Dream’, I remembered being very excited “Ah, so this is our first song”. 

Jimin: I had a hard time recording for ‘No More Dream’. So, actually I don’t remember it very well. When I listened to the dance break part of ‘N.O’, I thought “Wow~ It would be fun performing this song!”. 

V: Right. I went “Wah~” listening to ‘N.O’’s dance break part.

Fandom: The Walking Dead

Pairing: Daryl x Reader

Warning: Sexual Reference, fluff, jealous Daryl is so cute ♥

Another day begins in Alexandria, well, actually it’s already afternoon.

The fact is that yesterday, after a very long and dangerous ran, where I almost become walkers’ snack, my beloved man wore me out because he wanted to show me how much he loves me, so I sleep all day.

When I wake up I glance at the clock, it was already half past two in the afternoon.
However, what woke me up wasn’t the fact I felt rested, but by the commotion downstairs.

I walk down the stairs, into the kitchen and notice Rick, Carl and Daryl sitting with a stranger:

“Good morning” I said sleepy.

All men in the room turn toward me, Daryl stood up to kiss me on my head: “More like good afternoon, sunshine”.

Smiling I turn to look at the stranger: “Who is he?”
Daryl wraps his arm protectively around me: “Just a prick who stole from us and lost all the supply me and Rick had gathered”.

The stranger smiled and say: “Name’s Paul, but friends call me Jesus”.

I smile back at him: “I can see why! My name is (Y/n), nice to meet you”.

For some reason Daryl walk away from me to sit again on his chair.

Notice the tension Rick decide to tell me what’s going on: “We talked with Jesus here, he said he came from another community called “Hilltop” .

With wide eyes I crouch in front of Jesus: “There’s another community?! How much of you live there? Have you got all you need to survive? Because here we have medicine, guns and…”
Jesus interrupt my prattle laughing: “Hey hey slow down! We’re fine, actually we were talking about to start some sort of trade between Hilltop and Alexandria”.

Rick speak again: “We’ll preparing to go to the Hilltop with the others, you’d like to join?”
Before I could speak, Daryl answer for me: “ Nah, she’ll stay here”.

I stand up from my crouched position: “I’m not a child Daryl, I can handle myself well, more over you can’t decide for me…Rick, I’ll be ready in a few minutes” with this, I leave the room and walk upstairs for a change of clothes and to take my weapons.

While I was changing,  Daryl enters in our bedroom; I could see into his eyes that he was pissed about what happened minutes ago: “(Y/n)…I know you can handle yourself well, it’s just…I don’t trust that prick near you, He could do something bad”.

Smiling I hug him, burying my head on his chest: “Everything is gonna be fine! I know we don’t know him, but Jesus seems fine and like you say, I can protect myself”.

We parted, Daryl peck my lips before heading downstairs.

—————————————————————————————————-

 During our journey to the Hilltop I wanted to learn more about Jesus.

He is so funny, I laugh so hard that my cheeks start to hurt, without notice that my closeness to Jesus was irritating someone: “Have you two done? it’s not the time to goofin’ around”.

I turn around and see Daryl looking at us with anger and irritation:

 “Well I’m sorry Mr. Dixon, we’ll try to not annoying you” I say, a little hurt by his behaviour.

—————————————————————————————————-

After a while, we finally arrive at Hilltop.

It was so beautiful! There is so much green, and an awesome mansion in the centre of the community!

While the others were choosing who had to speak with the Hilltop’s leader, Jesus was explaining to me how he fights since I didn’t see him carry any weapon.

“Those are my weapons” he say while lifting his hands.

Then he proceed to explain all the techniques and how he learned them.

“You know what Jesus? You’re so cool!”

He thanks me while laughing.

Someone cleared his throat, turning around I see Daryl looking at us in the same way as before during the journey: “Maggie will talk to your leader, you should go with her”.

Jesus nods and walks away, leaving me and Daryl alone.

When I walk to him to grab his hand he just move away.

“Okay, what’s your problem Daryl?”.
“oh now you have the time to talk with me?”.
Surprised by his answer I asked him: “What do you mean?”.  

“Is Jesus cooler then me? Because apparently you spent all our journey flirting with him; what then? You will stay here with that prick?”.

Taken aback by his answer I can’t help but laughing.

I get it now: “Isn’t the tough Daryl Dixon jealous?”

“I’m glad you find it funny (Y/n), besides, I’m not jealous” He answered, turning his back to me.

Smiling, I hug him from behind: “Daryl…you know that you’re the only one for me. I just wanted to know him better since there is the possibility of trading between Hilltop and Alexandria. If we make a deal, we’ll see him a lot and, since you didn’t trust him, I wanted to make sure that Jesus was okay”.

Daryl turns around into my hug and suddenly attacks my neck with kisses.

I can’t help but moan: “Daryl… what are you doin’?

Detaching from my neck, he smile: “Making sure he understand that you’re taken”.

I touch the place where he kissed me and I could feel a growing hickey.

I turn around and before I could walk away from him, he draw me to his chest and whisper: “And tonight you’ll learn it too.”

With that he walks away.

With a smile on my face I can’t help but think that tonight will be a long and tiring night.

episodes of the pacific, rated on a scale from 1 to 10 according to emotional trauma
  • part one: starts off all right, but you don't get much time before you're thrown in headfirst. you have no idea what's happening, just that it's A Lot, but fortunately you don't know who anyone is yet so the blows are softened. 5/10
  • part two: similar to the first episode, but kicked up a notch, just in case you didn't know that you're in for a bad time. 6/10
  • part three: ah, sweet reprieve! true to form, angst is still peppered in throughout, but overall this is a time for relaxation. SAVOR IT. 3/10
  • part four: in case you forgot that there's a war on, everything is back to being terrible. our POV character casually longs for death in a very relatable way. 6/10
  • part five: the first of THREE FUCKING EPISODES of peleliu, not too much goes down until the last third of the episode, but when it goes down it goes down hard. 7/10
  • part six: everything happens. So Much. the only break you get is so brief that i almost forgot about it but i don't want to talk about it because i'll fucking cry. 9/10
  • part seven: this episode is dead to me. 10/10
  • part eight: some kind of cruel joke? 10/10
  • part nine: at this point during my initial watch i told a friend "i literally do not see how it could get worse" and was laughed at. 10/10
  • part ten: a different kind of pain. it is very likely that you will start crying before the episode even begins and will not stop until long after it's over. godspeed. 11/10
  • conclusion: this show was a mistake
From Producer Ann Marie Baldonado:

Terry always says it’s difficult to pick favorite interviews, and I totally agree.  I can’t even remember the interview I worked on this week or what we have booked for next week (That’s a slight exaggeration.  This week I worked on Jill Soloway.  Next week it’s Hasan Minaj.)  Still, I will try to point out a few interviews that I will always remember when forced to go through my mental archives.

David Rakoff 
A lot of public radio listeners will remember the late David Rakoff from his work on This American Life.  In 2001, he talked to Terry about his acting career, and being frustrated by the roles that were offered to him.  He said they would fall under two categories – “Jew-y McHebrew’ or ‘Fudgy McPacker.’  He did dramatic/hysterical renditions of the lines he remembered.  He was so funny, and elicited the much sought after Terry “snort.”  Now, I have laughed a lot while logging interviews on Fresh Air, but during this one, I had to stop logging because I was crying from laughing so hard.  Fresh Air replayed this part of the interview when Rakoff passed away too soon in 2012.

Thelma Schoonmaker 
I first stated booking film, TV, and theater interviews for Terry in the spring of 2005, so this is an early one.  Schoonmaker is the film editor who has worked with Martin Scorsese for over 40 years.  She has edited all of his films since Raging Bull in 1980.  She’s just this wonderful, thoughtful artist who works behind the scenes, plugging away, making great films.  Terry’s interview with her was one smart lady who loves movies talking to another smart lady who loves movies.

Mike Mills

I have loved booking directors, actors, and comedians early in their careers and watching their bodies of work grow.  People like Lena Dunham, Flight of the Conchords, and Hari Kondobolu come to mind. I have loved booking interviews with director Mike Mills over the years. We booked him after his first film Thumbsucker in 2005, then for his movies Beginners and 20th Century Women.  He is the ideal guest: open, smart, self-deprecatingly funny, and talks so well about how his work connects to his life, a favorite Fresh Air theme.  I feel their conversations about his films, that in reality are like love letters to his parents, end up leading to larger conversations between Terry and Mike,  about their parents who they have lost.

Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang
This one is a little more current.  I am not alone in this but one of my favorite recent TV shows has to be Master of None.   Some of the episodes from that first season (Parents and Indians on TV) live on my list of favorite episodes of TV ever.  I loved hearing friends Aziz and Alan talk about their own lives and how they incorporated their experiences into the show.  Everyone loves Aziz; I am glad we were able to have Alan on too.  We should forever thank them not just for this show, but for their work on Parks and Recreation.  And this is just one of the interviews that covered these great, really personal shows based on the lives of a great comedian, sort of the antecedents of Louie.  I am glad in the last few years, we have featured interviews with people like Aziz and Alan, Donald Glover, Issa Rae, and Rachel Bloom.

Sacha Baron Cohen 
I am proud of booking this one.  Up until this point, Sacha Baron Cohen was very committed to staying in character as Borat while doing all the promotion of his movie.  We were so happy that he agreed to do Fresh Air as himself, thus revealing that he was this accessible, intelligent guy.  He was quick to slip into his Borat voice though.  We love when guests slip into their characters’ voices.

Greg Marinovich and Joao Silva
It was a round about way to book an interview.  The movie The Bang Bang Club, starring Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Phillippe, told the story of a group of war photographers in South Africa during Apartheid.  We used the movie as an excuse to book an interview with Marinovich and Silva, two of the real photographers who inspired the film.  Both of them had lost dear friends to the work.  And both of them had been injured while trying to visually capture combat situations.  In fact,  Silva was recording his part of the interview from Walter Reed Army Medical Center; he had lost both of his legs in a land mine explosion in Afghanistan and was still recovering.  At one point, a nurse comes in to talk to Silva.  It was such a rare radio moment that we decided to leave it in the interview.  Terry has spoken to many war correspondents and photographers over the years. These interviews are inevitably harrowing, tragic, thoughtful, and moving.

PS. Ann Marie sometimes does interviews. Her latest was with SNL’s Sasheer Zamata.

JVR - Four Eyes

@carey-pricemas gave me free reign for JVR drabble. JVR helps his girlfriend over her dislike of wearing her prescription glasses.
Word count- 250
Warnings: all fluff

_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_•_X_

You wiggled your nose to keep your glasses perched where you could focus your eyes on the tv the best. JVR was having you watch highlights with him but your glasses were being extra annoying on your face today.
“That’s it! I’m going to rip my eyes out!” You say with frustration.
“These games aren’t THAT bad.” JVR says.
“No, I hate wearing glasses!”
“I think they’re cute.” He boops you on the nose.
“I hate putting contacts in my eyes and sometimes glasses are just the worst.” You dramatically lay your whole body across the couch. Your head now resting on JVR’s lap.
“They’re a part of your personality.” He says, twirling his fingers in your hair.
“How?” You raise an eyebrow.
“When you’re stressed you push them really close to your face. You have to tilt your head back when you laugh really hard so they don’t fall off. They get foggy when you get too excited. When you’re in an awkward situation you play with them by wiggling your nose. They’re a part of you.” He smiles.
You can’t help but feel in love with this man who can take your insecurities and make them too important to want to change.
“I guess I’ll keep them.” You sigh.
“Darn right you will!” He begins tickling you.
“JVR!” Falling off the couch your glasses fly across the room.
“And they usually go missing during tickles. Along with other activities,” he winks as you put your glasses back on.

[INFO] K.A.R.D Interview with Genie Music

Q: Do you recall any difficulties or fun episodes when you were preparing for “Don’t Recall”?

BM: The choreo was really hard to learn and also preparing the hidden track this album was difficult. 
J.Seph: One of my outfits for the shoot was all red, red shirt, red pants, red socks and red shoes. The kids were making fun of me, calling me a ddeokbukki…(laughs) 
Somin: The harmony part was too high for this song so I remember we laughed a lot during the recording saying it is like Archaeopteryx. 
Jiwoo: My first attempt at following the demo just to get the feel of the song was chosen to put in the final production haha

Q: Do you have any moments in your life that you don’t want to recall?

BM: I don’t. Because of all the moments of my life, I am able to sit here!
J.Seph: In middle school, I was the athletic leader of my school~~During a ceremony, I thought I would be called as a representative but I didn’t realize they were calling a different name and was standing on stage waiting. Haha.
Somin: It was just a while ago. I approached a person who was talking on a phone thinking it was my friend but it wasn’t…It was really embarrassingㅠㅠ
Jiwoo: Um…since it is something I don’t want to recall, I don’t want to talk about it hahaha Don’t recall~

Q: Many fans want to see you on music shows. What’s your promotion plan for this release?

BM: We’ll drop another single after this and then maybe able to come out with an album.
J.Seph: We’ll perform at many offline concerts~~and fans will be able to see us on YouTube a lot! We’ll have to wait a bit for music show appearances.
Somin: Like “Oh NaNa”, we’ll do lots of radio, and offline concerts for this promotion again.
Jiwoo: We are concentrating on learning and preparing by performing on small stages until the end of our 3rd single.

IEJI ~ Happy Birthday to MUCC~

2017/05/04 (Thu) at the Ibaraki Prefectural Citizen Culture Center Hall
(Coming of Age Ceremony and Concert)


  • BEFOREHAND

For goods sales before the show, the line was crazy. I lined up an hour before sales were to start and the place in front of the venue was pretty much full with people queuing already, 500-800 before me and in the end at least 400 behind me, easily more. Some of the goods were limited to two items per person (towel and shirt), towels and one size of the shirt still sold out before I got to the goods table (T_T). Shirts were all sold out by the end.

Next to the door they had a board and bamboo decoration for a coming of age ceremony (as I am sure is conducted for Mito kids in that very venue when they turn 20). About the mistake in the printed year (heisei 27 instead of 29), it says this was Yukke’s mistake.

They started a bit late, I think partly due to the goods craze and partly due to ticket double checking. I was in the second last row, and saw half the last row being asked outside again, to be questioned about their tickets. Apparently someone had bought a ticket for that area online so they were trying to figure out which seat so they can get the seller.
Re-sale was always prohibited but they are finally cracking down on re-sales where the price was increased / that happened on ticket-resale sites (where people often increase the price).

  • CEREMONY

First, Satochi, Yukke and Tatsurou came on stage in traditional clothes, but no Miya. Miya came in from a side door for the audience, walking through the seats to the stage in his flashy red clothes.
Once he had joined the others on stage, Mito-chan (the mascot) appeared and gave them a package of nattou. Tatsurou opened it for a sniff, then had Yukke smell who all but JUMPED back at the strong smell. Mukku (the red one) came out and gave a little speech about MUCC and told each of the members something. Miya sat down in the middle of him speaking (“But it’s your Coming Of Age ceremony! Keep it together just for a little bit longer!”), used his folding fan, dropped that to the ground and just was a flashy brat all around.
Mukku to Tatsurou: 20 years ago you had close-cropped hair and “god” written on your face, and you still managed to grow up so cool.
Mukku to Miya: Good job getting anything done with these three idiots.
Yukke would have been next in line, but Mukku turned to Satochi first.
Mukku to Satochi: Please study a bit harder for kanji and math…
Mukku to Yukke: You are only at 18 years and therefore not of age yet. In two years, please celebrate your coming of age at home alone.

  • COMMENTS & MC NOTES

For Aka, the first song, the guys didn’t seem to move around as much as normal so everyone was all “huh? something’s off”, but most of the audience didn’t realize that there were entirely different people on stage that were only wearing MUCC’s costumes – until the real members popped up behind them and the body doubles disappeared from the stage.
In one of the MCs they talked about this. Like, about who the body doubles were:
Yukke: Mine was SCREW’s Rui.
Tatsurou: Mine was Girugamesh’s Shu, GirugameShu.
Miya: We didn’t find anyone for me until yesterday, but one of the kouhai I drink with when home kind of looks similar to me, and he’s in a band now too and had time to come, so him.

That guy is a bassist so all of the three in front were bassists XD
Tatsurou: What about you Satochi?
Satochi: Mine was Takayasu-san.
Tatsurou: Yourself?
Satochi: (small voice) yes.

Tatsurou: I feel like we shouldn’t talk about stupid things during the MC for the 20th anniversary, but MUCC came this far while talking about nothing but useless stuff during the MCs so I also want to stay true to that.
Yukke: Oh, I have something stupid to talk about! It’s something I can’t say normally, but… is it ok to talk about shit for a bit? (everyone: ???)
Yukke: Shit drills have been really popular lately, you know, study sheets where the answers to all questions will spell out shit!
Satochi: (nods in happy understanding)
Yukke: Satochi, you received some of those right? Presents from fans? I don’t know why they are so popular, maybe they are more fun to do than normal drills?
Satochi: Yes, they are fun! So much fun! (sounding like an excited elementary school kid)

Satochi was reading 実話ナックルズ in a store (… if you don’t know the magazine, please do a picture search for the name, such a yankee mag omg). Which lead Miya to remember…
Back when Miya had a part time job in Kabukichou, at some after party a kouhai got utterly wasted so Miya helped stuffing him into a taxi and someone must have taken a picture of that because it appeared in 実話ナックルズ with something like “A True Account Of Kidnapping! The Dark Side Of Kabukichou!” (MUCC cracking up)
Tatsurou: So you really appeared in the magazine?!
At the time apparently Miya mentioned it during an MC too and Satochi went to a convenience store right after the live to check it out and yes, the article in question was there XD

For the encore, they changed positions:
Tatsurou → bass (not one reduced to two strings this time, a normal fully stringed bass)
Miya → drum (behind his own little drum set, not Satochi’s)
Yukke → guitar
Satochi → vocal (with little angel wings on his back)
During Sekai no Owari, for all the 俺はまっすぐ歩けない lines (“can’t walk straight”), Satochi was penguin walking around the stage avoiding two steps in the same direction XD
And all of the growls sounded like Satochi was throwing up… XD;

Satochi thought they were doing only Sekai no Owari with changed parts, but no, also Ranchuu. In between the two, Satochi admired Tatsurou because
Satochi: Damn, doing vocals is EXHAUSTING how do you do it, moving all the time is so hard you’re amazing!

During Ranchuu, there was even more Satochi throwing up (“growling”… but he even stood in ways that suggested throwing up, like bending over and such) and moving in adorably cute patterns around the stage, like damn, I have never laughed so hard during Ranchuu that my stomach hurt afterwards but this time, oh wow XD SO CUTE. SO FUNNY.
So, a big percentage of the crowd was laughing waaay to hard to do any headbanging, but we enjoyed it to no end XD

For the double encore, they returned to their normal positions. And started with two song covers, for ESCAPE they had live piano on stage again, played by Yoshida-san who has worked with them during recordings before (he played the piano for Shinsou on Zekuu and ever since worked with them whenever they needed a pianist).
Apparently they first hired him for only one song (Suna no Shiro) for this live, and then with “can we add one more song?” “sure” “ok and one more then” they ended up with him on stage for three songs XD

The second time of Ranchuu, this time with everyone on their normal position, was amazing especially with the contrast to Satochi’s supercute version. Now everyone could (and did) go crazy enough for both times XD

Tatsurou: That you all have gathered here today, that means that MUCC are a part of your life! We are family!! Please continue like that for many years to come!!!! Ah… I said that, but… zen’in shikei!!! (what he always calls during Ranchuu, “You’re all under death penalty”ish, so everyone cracked up at that XD )

When they left the stage after the last song, Satochi started to throw Yukke’s bass into the audience, but of course stopped before it left the stage, shocking Miya next to him for a second XD

  • Announcements via a text video projected onto the backdrop

- Re-release of Tsuuzetsu and Homura Uta
- Tour in the summer in tiny tiny venues

Miya on Twitter on the Re-Releases:
“We could finally announce about the New Tsuuzetsu and the New Homura Uta. I think there are good parts to MUCC from long ago as well as good parts to the MUCC of today, so with this release we can directly compare their music which should be fun. We don’t want to just reproduce what we did back then. Right now, there are things we cannot do the way we did them back then. But also, there are things we can do now that we could not do back then. And so I think we managed to make something we could only make as the MUCC of today.”

『声優だって旅します』京都編 未放送シーン
AnimeJapan2017で限定公開された物です。 金沢編(浪川大輔)→https://youtu.be/igFSCibJLJI 北海道編(諏訪部順一)→https://youtu.be/ioyWsb6SlTM

KoeTabi video that was revealed on AnimeJapan 2017:
- Unaired scenes from Season 1
- Special message for KoeTabi 2 (He was still in the middle of Okinawa trip during this recording)

Special message translation done by a fellow fan:

To the people in Anime Japan, Mensoore!
This is Okinawa-group’s team leader, Kaji Yuki!

Q. What is the one thing that made you feel glad about being starred in KoeTabi?
Well, I’ve always enjoyed travelling. So to be able to do this as part of work, not to mention visiting any place I want to go, also, the last time when we went to Kyoto, I was glad that I was given the chance to visit the places that I don’t usually go to, as the theme was “the back of Kyoto.” And given that it’s really hard to try match to the other two’s schedule even in private, KoeTabi has given me this wonderful time to be able to travel with people that I like so much, as part of work.

Q. During this trip, has your impression of Hatanaka-san changed?
Nope *laughs* Well, everyone must have already noticed but, right now, we’re in the middle of the trip. It’s still the first day out of the two days and… it’s barely past half of the day, but. Yeah, it hasn’t changed. He’s exactly how I imagined him to be. He’s a really pleasant, manly, but… also a bit feminine *laughs* That kind of person. How’d I put this… by being together, he gives me energy. Also, he’s a really honest person.
Appears that he doesn’t like onions.

Q. Did you experience anything new in this trip?
Although I’ve only went through around ¼ of the whole trip, I did get to experience new things! Seems like this is Hatanaka-kun’s first time here in Okinawa, so the sight of him being too excited, is one highlight I believe. Personally for me, I got to make a “certain” thing. Well previously, all the groups also had one activity in common which is to make clay, this time too, we have something similar to that.

Q. What is a highlight of Okinawa?
I’ve been saying it forever but, we’re still, in the middle of the trip *laughs* I’m sure that there’ll be more highlights coming up soon, but if I have to name one at this stage, it would be “Hatanaka Tasuku and Pineapple.” I believe that this will become really important. I’m feeling that this will turn out to become a really fun trip, so please look forward to it!

Morning Musume 13th gen interview (UTB+ March 2017)

(Translator’s note: This is chronologically the first interview 13ki had ever done, so there is information now known (i.e. Yokoyama’s blood type) that was not known at this point.)

We’re the 13th generation of Morning Musume!

Kaga Kaede x Yokoyama Reina

The 13th generation members decided upon are these two from Hello! Pro Kenshuusei! There’s a stark contrast between Kaga-chan’s 4 years of Kenshuusei and Yokoyama-chan’s 3 months, but it seems that Yokoyama-chan has an aggressive personality (laugh). They’re beginning to act more and more like generation mates. 

The uncertainty of debuting during the Kenshuusei days

— What was the initial reason why you joined the Kenshuusei?

Kaga: I’ve been watching Morning Musume since I was little, but in particular, when I saw the performance of “One Two Three” (‘12), everybody’s dancing and singing was amazing, and Sayashi Riho-san, the center, was really cool and left an impact on me. I admired that a girl in the same age group as me could dance so well. I went for the 11th generation auditions, failed partway through, and joined the Kenshuusei.

Yokoyama: I’ve liked Morning Musume since I was in sixth grade. Back then, I still viewed them from the perspective of a fan and never thought about wanting to become a member. When I entered junior high, I saw Morning Musume ‘14 being pranked on a TV show. It was a wake-up prank where everyone had to wake up and start singing and dancing immediately. When I watched that, even though everyone had just woken up, they danced crisply, sang properly, and smiled brightly. I thought that it would definitely be fun to join them. I took the first 13th generation audition (no passed applicants) and joined then.

blue night radio ♡ 170206
translation: fantaemsie

(to a listener who requested lee sora / park hyo shin’s “it’s gonna be rolling”.) jonghyun: i really like this song too. park hyo shin’s voice in this is just … woah. (listening to it) i knew why park hyo shin has the word: “shin: god” in his name. (laughs) he’s really good in singing. he sings really so well. also, during junior high, i used to sing it in karaoke a lot and, since there (wasn’t) any girl to sing lee sora’s part, my guy friend used to sing her part but he had a really hard time at it. (laughs)

Here’s a little story Goro will hate me for telling, but I’m telling it anyway.

So, as of 11/20, I was supposed to be dead. Part of playing dead means never, ever, ever answering my phone. Sure, I can send texts. I can also call people back if they leave me a voicemail. But if I get a call, I let that go to voicemail, especially if it’s a number I don’t know. If someone gets suspicious about not seeing my body and decides to conduct an investigation, having a supposedly dead guy answer the phone on them…well, that’s all the proof they’d need, isn’t it?

Well, for the first couple of days my phone was silent except for texts. Then on 11/23, it started ringing. Going to be honest with you here - it was terrifying. I had all the reasons in the world to think this meant someone was checking to see if I was alive - no one could go see my body, so even though Prosecutor Niijima covered for me, and the whole thing was a cover-up within a cover-up so it was really hard to get close to it anyway, and everyone was reassuring me it should be fine as long as I just stayed home, I couldn’t help but worry that eventually, someone would get suspicious.

I’m used to scary situations though. I let it ring, just like I was supposed to. Eventually the ringing stopped, and a voicemail notification popped up, so I opened it up and listened to it.

Soon as the voice started I almost had a heart attack. Of all the people who could be calling me, it was Goro Akechi. Of course, immediately, I was thinking, “This is it. He knows I’m alive. He’s calling in a threat, I’m going to find him standing over me ready to shoot in the middle of the night, it’s over.”

But…that wasn’t what he was saying at all. Actually, what he said was “Oh, good, you did record your own voicemail greeting. I was hoping I’d get to hear your voice.”

So after that got me curious, I kept listening, and here’s what he said:

“I know you’re not there to hear this, but I just wanted to say…I’m sorry for what I did to you. A lot of good that does, though, right? I know it doesn’t matter - no matter how much I regret it, no matter who gave me the order and how much I disliked it, you’re still dead - these things are absolutes. It’s funny - even after all the time we spent together, I didn’t realize just how much I’d gotten attached to you until - until it was done. I know there’s no use trying to do anything about it now - you’re gone, and I have no one to blame but myself. Anyway, I have to hang up soon, before someone catches me saying all this, so I’ll wrap it up - I guess, what I’m trying to say is…I wish you had a chance to know that I’m not proud of it, and…I miss you.”

I couldn’t process how I felt about that. I still can’t, not entirely. And then, that wasn’t even the end of it. He kept using my voicemail as a confessions booth, at least once a day, for the next few weeks. Sometimes he would yell at me for being nice to him when I knew we were bound to be pitted against each other. Sometimes he would just casually tell me about things he saw during his day that reminded him of me, as if I was there. Twice, he just broke down into barely coherent begging for me to come back somehow. He told me that he was sorry for looking so happy about it; that forcing himself to laugh was the only way he could do it at all.

He told me that all the stress was making it so hard to uphold his public image, he was afraid that Shido would notice and it would all be for nothing.

The worst part is, it was better bait for me than anything he could have come up with intentionally. I knew I couldn’t answer him - if he found out I was still alive, no matter how honest his messages may have been, the news would have gotten to Shido and made it all pointless. But…I wished I could have done something to ease his pain.

remember this?

‘50 Things about Nyongtory’
1:
On Seungri’s birthday, when he was on stage, some fans threw gifts up the stage. Seungri was constantly being hit by the gifts. He was uncomfortable but because of the lack of energy, he didn’t say anything about it. At first, Jiyong was laughing at him but when he realised that Seungri is in pain, he immediately rushed forward to protect him. He cursed softly so many of the fans didn’t hear it. But those who were in front heard him say “싸발” (fuck).
2: 
I know of someone who works in the entertainment industry in the security department. Thanks to his high position, he has interacted with a lot of idols/artists. 
He recently called me out to have a drink and I agreed. If I were to tell him about the groups I liked, I would have revealed my identity. So I casually acted as someone who didn’t care much about idols and asked him “Oppa, Recently the group BIGBANG songs are pretty good? You should have met them a couple of times right?” 
He mentioned that they have met quite a bit but he has never really talked to them. It’s just their group talking and chatting casually within themselves.
They were a bit awkward, especially GD and TOP.
He also say that when GD is with someone he doesn’t know, he wouldn’t laugh. His facial expression would become very stoic and he wouldn’t be really friendly.
But when he is with Seungri, even when Seungri says something lame or not interesting at all, he would laugh.
The two of them are also toilet partners.
Oppa mentioned the ‘maknae fellow’ so it should be Seungri. 
Why do they go to the toilet together?
When they are in the departure hall at the airport, even when they announced that BIGBANG is next to board the plane. These two will still go missing and suddenly appear.
GD seems to really lack affection from others.
He always clings on Seungri and Seungri always get impatient/annoyed with him.
Before going up on stage, Seungri greeted this oppa, so he pat Seungri’s shoulder lightly, asking him to do well on stage. Afterwards, while going on stage, Jiyong actually got angry at Seungri for no reason.
3:
My friend is learning makeup.
Her school will sometimes help artists/idols do makeup. Before she even liked BIGBANG, she got a chance to help them do makeup. 
While GD was checking the stage performance, Seungri suddenly rushed over. 
After talking for a bit, GD suddenly dragged Seungri to the toilet and didn’t come out. What did they exactly do in the toilet?
4: 
When BIGBANG first debuted, they had a lot of fans which only liked 1 member. During one of the fan signing events, a female fan said mean things to Seungri in front of GD and Seungri. (ADDING: The female fan only liked 1 member but don’t know what happened during the queueing, she was assigned to Seungri so she was very unhappy and said mean things to him) Seungri forced a smile and tried to ignore it, at first, GD also gave a very warm smile to the fan but after this happened, GD chased her off angrily. So after this fan sign, a lot of people criticized GD, saying he doesn’t know to do fanservice and such. 
On that day, GD was really afraid that Seungri was hurt so he kept hugging and asking if he is alright.
5:
This happened before BIGBANG debut, One of SE7EN’s fan was waiting for him outside the YG building and saw a van with the BIGBANG members. At first, she didn’t it was BIGBANG but now she does. She saw the members exit in this order: TOP, TaeYang, Daesung and then GD. Once GD got off, he turned around and said “Seungri, Hand~~~~” Then Seungri took his hand and got off the Van.
6:
Fans who were working at the Skiing resort mentioned that when GD came over to get the equipment, he said this “I’ll help Seungri get his too.”
He only got his own equipment and Seungri’s before going off, they also saw him helping Seungri put on his equipment. 
When they were skiing, Seungri wasn’t really good at it. So GD who was already below waited for him. 
Both of them even exchanged clothes.
The two played around and did things only couple will do. They laughed and rolled all over the floor.
7:
There was a fan who stood in the front row for a concert. When Seungri and TOP did an intimate dance, the fan was looking at GD. He looked really unhappy and spoke through the mic “Ah… I think my hips can shake better.”
8:
Although I’m a TOP fan, I wanted to give a gift to Seungri. So even though TOP and Daesung left, I still waited.
There were 4 fans waiting together.
1 GD fan 2 Seungri fan and me.
When the door opened, the first person to enter was Youngbae. He was on the phone, seemingly chatting with someone.
He sat down on the stairs and Seungri sat down beside him. 
Then GD came out, he kept standing in front of Youngbae and Seungri. Suddenly, I don’t even know if he knows we are there, he grabbed Seungri’s shoulder.
All of us were really shocked and couldn’t recover. 
GD placed his lips on Seungri’s lips, (we could only see their back views, so other than kissing, we don’t know if they did anything else.)
For about 4 seconds, they just stayed in that position.
Youngbae who felt weird just played with the phone beside them. Seungri who was attacked by GD tried to struggle out of his grips. 
After GD move his face away, the 4-second kiss ends there. GD lets out a laugh and uses the back of his hand to clean his lips.
While Seungri took about 2 seconds to recover. 
He then told the innocent Youngbae who was beside him to take a photo with his phone, GD who felt shy/awkward after the incident just started playing with his phone. 
That is when I heard the fans with me say 
“Oh my god, Are they dating?”
9:
When Seungri was on Manwon happiness, he kept singing that he wanted to eat chicken, but his hyungs didn’t pay any attention to him. But GD told Seungri he would buy chicken for him. but after the filming, this conversation was almost forgotten. So he told his hyungs again that he wanted to eat chicken but they didn’t care. I guess Seungri wasn’t that happy either. 
Then afterwards one day, a few boxes of chicken were sent to the dorm, only Jiyong was home that day.
After that, it was revealed that Seungri who ordered the chicken to tease GD. GD still paid for the chickens, not long after that, Seungri came back too. 
Importantly, for a long time, only the two of them were in the dorm. Actually, GD is a really nice person. He doesn’t know if that is a promise or anything else, if it was me I would have acted blur and not pay for the chickens, yet he actually still paid for the chickens. Although you might say that it is important for a celebrity to maintain a good image, I still nyongtory good~
10:
My friend managed to convince the security guard to let her pass a gift to BIGBANG. 
My friend printed some articles to give them and when GD saw it, he asked her “is this a fanfic?” 
My friend shook her head and said no before asking him if he was seen any fanfic before. GD answers her that he has seen 2 fanfics in the past.
My friend then asked him why and what did he read.
He replies that Seungri was dead and that he was the police. Then the security guard came over to ask her to leave.
The fanfic he read was written by a Korean fan named Jojo, the story was name “CUBE” (In the story, they were lovers and Seungri was killed. GD who is a police went crazy trying to find the killer.)
11:
My friend went to BIGBANG’s concert.
Before the concert started, she left the venue for a bit.
Near the venue was something similar to an alley. When she went there, She saw GD and Seungri there. They seemed to be talking about something, so she quietly stood there and tried to listen to what they are saying.
She then heard GD say this:
“You always bottom in fanfic anyway!”
(NOTE: There was another version of a fan standing outside BIGBANG’s dorm and hearing GD saying the same time.)
12-1:
**I couldn’t quite get this part due to some slangs so I apologize for the missing parts and mistakes
On the 30th, We all know that during Seungri’s musical ‘Sonagi’, all the YG staffs, YG himself and even BIGBANG went to watch it.
Seungri said something**
And GD laughed really hard.
**skipped cause I dont get it:(
This was confirmed by many fans that GD went down again for another 2 times after the 30th. Why did he watch the same performance for 3 times? Did he really liked it so much?
12-2:
A group of people were given permission to interview the casts of the Musical ‘Sonagi’.
Due to some issues, young Seungri was unable to go to the interview, so we waited for the young female lead.
While waiting, we saw two women, we realized that it was Seungri and GD’s mother. So we thought that we should stand a bit further and not bother them. 
*Skipped this part cause not related.
When Seungri came out, he gave his mum a hug before asking her to sit down somewhere else.
(The main thing is that Seungri and GD’s mother watch the performance together.)
13:
A fan managed to get into the building for the filming of ‘Coffee Prince” because she had relations.
While they were playing, she saw Seungri and GD practicing the their script. She saw GD pushing Seungri against the wall and said TOP’s line. “Whether you are a man or alien, I don’t mind!” after this, was supposed to be a kissing scene.
Yet Seungri took the effort to push him off and said “Aren’t you EunChan? We should change out roles!”
GD then let out a lovingly expression at Seungri. Then he said “Aigoo! So cute!”
14:
A fan managed to get into the broadcasting station through relations and she went to BIGBANG’s waiting room. 
She saw Seungri texting nonstop.
She also GD walking around Seungri and tried to look at his phone before starting to interrogate him about it.
Afterwards, Seungri said that he is thirsty so GD took the bottle of water beside him, removed the cap before passing it to Seungri.
(NOTE: Don’t know if this is from the same person that mentioned that when GD talked to Seungri, Seungri kept giving half-hearted replies (cause he is texting) and GD eventually asked “Who are you texting?” then when he saw the text, he snatch his phone over)
15:
*Skipped non-related parts
My friend bought ‘dunkin donuts’ set for Seungri.
Seungri was also tired from taking all the gifts. (there was a lot)
Then GD who didn’t have any gift looked at the gifts Seungri received and asked him what he has gotten.
He then took all the gift Seungri has on hand, all Seungri did was took out a donut and ate it. 
And previously Seungri took 2 hands to hold all the gifts, but GD only used 1 hand to hold the gifts.
While Seungri was still shaking the hands of the fans, GD got angry and go over to him and wrapped his arms around his shoulders, pulling him away.
16:
During an album cover shooting, while Seungri was taking solo shots, GD told Seungri “The right side of your face looks nicer, show that side to the camera.” (Seungri then said his left side looks nicer, rebelling?)
“You are single eyelid so don’t pose like this, raise your jaws so it looks more natural.”
He kept guiding him at the side. 
(Note: Don’t tell me that how Seungri takes picture nowadays is because of GD’s guidance?)
17:
A fan made a board with the following names on it “Seunghyun and Jiyong <3)
When he gave it to GD, He smiled happily and asked, “Is this Seungri and me?” The fan couldn’t answer that it was TOP so she was said ‘yes’ before GD took the board happily.
18:
A fan went to the broadcasting station with an oppa through relations, when that oppa went to the toilet and came back, he asked: “Is GD and Seungri dating? I saw them at the toilet happily brushing their teeth and playing around.”
19:
On the 29th of the Great Concert, because of Seungri’s injured leg, all the fans shouted “Lee Seunghyun Lee Seunghyun!” then GD replied, “Seungri is in pain now.” then tried to hold in his tears.
20:
During their break, Seungri returned back to Gwangju.
During the time Seungri was away, GD changed his Cyworld background music to Deli Spice’s ChauChau, the lyrics were “Can hear your voice.”
21:
Someone asked Seungri “Why don’t you use Cyworld?” 
Seungri just laughed and reply, “It’s okay, I have Jiyong Hyung’s password so I can go in.”
Even in Cyworld, Nyongtory shares a password.
22:
This Seungri fan’s aunt works in the entertainment industry.
So one day, some staffs that knew BIGBANG brought her aunt over to meet BIGBANG. She asked, “Who is Seungri?” someone replied, “I am!” 
she then proceeded to tell him “My niece is your fan.” then this person replied, “Thank you!”
It was after that they realised that this person is GD and during that time, Youngbae and Seungri weren’t around. 
She asked because she wanted to get a signature for her niece, when she asked, GD replied that he is Seungri.
23:
I went to watch a 19 age restricted movie. 
In front of us were a couple of people with masks on. I looked carefully and saw GD, Seungri and someone else.
I saw that Seungri was rejected from watching because he was underage (we are watching the same movie)
(NOTE: Seungri was underage at that time and to add on, he saw NYONGTORY after the movie again)
24:
Someone kept pressing the GOLDEN MOUTH remember? 
MBC Seventh floor corridor has a button that shouts their name for the in DJs.
They then found out it was Seungri and GD.
They were acting like it’s their first time there and pressed the buttons happily before the sound coming out scared both of them, they kept rushing each other to turn it off.
25:
A fan’s aunt had close relation with YG, so they often exchange calls or messages.
Once, while, on the phone, they heard Seungri saying in the background faintly “Jiyong hyung, Why on TV shows they only look for Daesung hyung?” 
Jiyong then replied “Aigoo, My baby.”
(NOTED: This how Jiyong always calls Seungri) it is pronounced as ‘Ae gi’, when translated, it is baby, but it is much intimate than that. People often use it for people they love)
26:
Lee Soo Hyuk is very close with GD right? (Lee Soo Hyuk is an actor and model and also belongs in clique “Nuthang”)
I know of a friend who is related to this clique of people. 
During one of the meetings, while Soohyuk and GD were chatting. Someone called GD and the conversation went something like this. 
“Oh, oh. I’m out meeting with friends.”
“Oh, okay.” 
After the call ended, Soohyuk asked GD who it was.
GD replied that it was “Seungri”
Then Soohyuk told him “Oh, it has been really long since I last saw him, I really want to meet him.” Which result in GD asking him “Why do you want meet him?” They then continued to jokingly talk and chat.
My friend mentions that Soohyuk totally loves Seungri, he takes very good care of Seungri. 
There was once during an NUTHANG meeting, Seungri was originally sitting in front of Soohyuk, then GD purposely sat beside Seungri and did all sorts of intimate stuff with him, the possessive kind.
27:
We all know that Seungri lives together with GD right?
So GD’s mother will often go to their house to either clean up or make some food for them. 
One of these days, a couple of fans was hanging around their house and happened to see GD’s mother exiting the house. They went over and asked if GD, Seungri was home, but his mother replied that the two of them went out together. When asked when they will be back, the mother replies that she isn’t so sure about it. 
They continued chatting and one of the VIPs asked his mother “How is Seungri Oppa?”
The mother then replied “Seungri? That kid is very charming and knows how to get people to love him, just like a daughter.” 
Also, GD’s mother and Seungri’s mother is really close, right? Going overseas together and stuff.
28:
GD’s friend (should be in NUTHANG) asked about Seungri. “Why do you care?” was GD’s reply. Then GD’s friend replied, “I think he is kind of cute.” GD then answered him “Seungri is mine.” Which resulted in the friend saying “Oh, seems like Seungri is very popular.” GD then answered, “That’s why I’m worried.”
29:
I have a friend who is really close to someone in NUTHANG. 
Lets call him A and his friend in NUTHANG B. 
*Skipped cause I didn’t get how relevant it was to Seungri. Sorry~
B usually treated Seungri really well, so whenever they met, B will always GD about Seungri, but GD doesn’t really reveal anything about the BIGBANG members. 
B then told GD “When we he grows up, lets all go out together.” GD which in turn replied “Do we still need to say that?”
30:
During 2007 concert, Seungri had to live in the hospital due to his leg injury. GD also collapsed due to the heavy schedule they have, both of them lived in separate rooms. There were a lot of speculations that GD was actually in the hospital with another member but the hospital confirmed that it was Seungri. (They also mentioned that even though they didn’t live in the same rooms, GD always went over to visit Seungri.)
31:
This by a YG staff who seemed to really love NYONGTORY.
During one of their practices, while they were having their breaks, GD went out.
Seungri then followed GD out as well, the YG staff was curious so he also followed them.
It was at night so it wasn’t really clear.
GD was standing by the car smoking. Seungri told him “Hyung stop smoking.”
Seungri then coughed which in return GD smiled and laughed.
GD then removed one of his earrings and gave it to Seungri who happily accepted it. They then went back in after he finished smoking.
According to the rest of the entry, he noticed that GD’s earrings were usually either both green or both red. but one day, it became one green and one red.

32: 
This is more recent, this person helped to build the new YG building. When this person saw Gaho, he asked “Is this G-Dragon’s Dog? Why is he so obedient?” Then someone told him that Gaho actually bit Seungri so GD gave Gaho a strict lecture which made him like this now.
33:
Nyongtory has always been the same. At the broadcasting station, I have seen them sometimes doing this, GD would sometimes bury his face into Seungri’s shoulder or hold his hands, or even call him loving pet names. 
Normally, he would call him Maknae but sometimes he would call him “Ae gi” (baby) or “Jagi” (Honey, usually in the lovers term) 
Everytime there is food, he would give it to Seungri first. 
GD often has a bored or blank look on his face, we don’t know why but he always does. But when Seungri is around, he always seem to be smiling or laughing. Everytime rehearsals end, he would find Seungri first just to take care of him.
34:
During the filming of COFFEE PRINCE, GD fell asleep on the couch so one of the staff’s took a blanket and place it over GD who was sleeping. He then proceeded to kick the blanket off. After awhile, Seungri walked past and saw the blanket on the floor. He picked it up and placed it over GD quietly. GD then slept like baby afterwards without kicking the blanket.
35: 
*I skipped a lot of irrelevant stuff (I’m not quite sure why it is relevant to nyongtory ;-;)
My friend: “When is your birthday party?”
GD: “I’m going to attend now.”
My friend: “Why is GD TV not filming then?”
GD: “It has always been filming.”
We were supposed to leave after getting the signatures but I was curious about the rumours of BIGBANG’s dorm being split into two so I asked him about it.
Me: “Ah.. Why is BIGBANG’s dorm split into two?”
GD: “That’s not really true… I just live with Seungri.”
When he answered like that, I was really curious as to what he meant but he eventually answered my doubts.
“Because Seungri is my soulmate.” then laughed and walked towards his car.
I then asked the last question “Is Seungri attending your party?”
Then answered before getting in his car “Of course he is or I’ll torture him.”
Before closing his car door, he told us “I’ll kiss him all over his body to torture him” and then he left.
Leaving me and my friend in shock.
36:
*I shorten a couple of things as this entry is REALLY long and some parts are not really needed.
I am actually a GTOP fan but after seeing GD and Seungri today, I became a Nyongtory fan. 
We saw GD and Seungri going to a smoothie shop and they were really giving out a lovers aura. 
The two of them ordered some bread and smoothies before sitting down to eat.
While Seungri was eating his bread, GD looked at him really lovingly. Just like a mother looking at his own kid. 
Seungri totally ignore GD who was looking at him, he ate his bread then drank his smoothie. Eventually finishing his own smoothie.
GD then gave his own smoothie to Seungri and then took out a tissue paper to give him so he could wipe his own mouth. 
Seungri then asked him “Hyung, aren’t you eating?” because he was chewing his bread, he pronunciation was not correct so it was very cute. GD started laughing very loudly. Honestly speaking, as a fan for 4 years, I have never seen GD laugh so happily before. 
GD lightly pinch his cheek before they started talking again and both of them laughed. 
Both of them observed the people around them before paying and leaving the place. My friend was complaining so I didn’t follow them any further.
After seeing them like this, I really think they are dating. Comparing it to GTOP interactions, GTOP seemed more like close brother. Nyongtory really seem like they are dating, I would never forget seeing them like this.
37:
I saw GD and Seungri eating at a 2 storey restaurant in japan.
They were happily chatting while eating.
I’m not sure what they were talking about but it was nothing serious, just some lame jokes and they started laughing. They even made weird noises, like imitating toys?
After GD finished his bowl of noodles, he drank a few spoons of soup. When he saw that Seungri has some leftover noodles. He took them over and ate it.
I couldn’t see this while they were eating, but they suddenly laughed really loudly and GD almost fell off his chair. After they left, I followed out quietly.
I saw Seungri playing with his phone while GD was smoking. I know this isn’t right but I took my phone out to snap a couple of pictures. But before I could do it, GD’s eyes met mine and he quickly stopped smoking before grabbing Seungri hands and pulling him away.
38: 
Remember when BIGBANG performed with little BIGBANG? While they were backstage, GD took a couple of cookies and asked little GD if he wanted them. Little GD said yes, so he told little GD that he needs to kiss little Seungri before he can get them. Little GD then proceeds to kiss little Seungri which GD takes a picture of and shows it to Seungri later.
39:
Seungri really hates the smell smoke has but he lives with GD… One day, when GD was leaning against the wall and smoking, Seungri entered and attempted to grab the stick so he could extinguish the fire. But GD stopped him and told him sternly “Take your hand away. You will get burned, I will extinguish the stick, just take your hand away.”
40:
JAPAN INTERVIEW
Q: What is BIGBANG’s hobby/interest?
TOP: I like to collect toys and figurines.
GD: I also like to collect toys and figurines too.. I like them so much that if someone touches them, i will get angry.
TOP: Really? I didn’t know we have the same interest. I have never seen your toys, where do you keep them?
GD: Beside where TOP is sitting. (laughs) - Beside TOP is Seungri
Seungri: GD likes to joke, this is a korean style joke.
ANOTHER VERSION
GD: If someone touches my belongings, I get very unhappy. Something like toys.
MC: Like dolls?
GD: Yes! If someone touches them, I get pissed off. 
Seungri: What kind of dolls? 
GD: Like the one sitting beside TOP. - Beside TOP is Seungri
Seungri: (laughs) This is Korean style humour.
(There is no such humour in Korea)
41:
MC: Is there anything GD feels hurt/upset about Seungri?
GD: Of course! Even till now, I still feel hurt!
V.I: There shouldn’t be anything. What is it?
GD: It’s always me who takes the initiative to text Seungri first, he never texts me first.
MC: Oh, why doesn’t Seungri take the initiative?
GD: That’s not even the worse, what makes it worse is that he replies really late and so, I asked why he replies so late.
MC: Oh oh! What is his explanation?
GD: He always says that he never expects to me message him.
V.I: I really didn’t expect him to text me! 
GD: When I text him, I always get very nervous so I always hold the phone in my hand, checking if he replies. But it doesn’t seem like this for Seungri.
V.I: It’s not like this. Really.
GD: I always wait for his replies, but Seungri doesn’t. He only replies when he feels like it. I’m very hurt.
42:
This happened on 2011.3.20 
It was rainy and freezing cold.
We waited a really long time before we allowed to go in to see BIGBANG.
Whilst preparing, Seungri sang for us, it was really cute. All of the members laughed, but GD laughed the hardest.
He then told us “Our maknae is cute right? He always makes people love him.”
The other members just looked at him as if he is hopeless.
He then added, “He really makes people go crazy.” This made Seungri blush.
43:
I know of a friend who is close with BIGBANG. One day, when he went drinking with GD and TOP, he noticed that GD kept holding his phone in his hand and looked really worried. This went on for a bit before he decided to ask him what is wrong. GD pretended that nothing is wrong and told him he’s okay. But even after a long time, he was still doing the same thing. So he asked TOP what happened to GD, TOP just replied, “He’s like this because of Seungri.”
44:
GD was playing with Seungri’s hair.
Seungri who allowed him to touch freely said, “I’m nice huh.”
GD then said, “Even though two people are living together, I feel like I live alone.”
He’s trying to say that Seungri like a doll. 
Their relationship seems really good.
45:
This happened during one of their rehearsals while they were having a break. Seungri played Strong Baby and started practicing on his own. GD who was watching him suddenly walked over to him and touched his body. During their practices, they would always play like this but their actions would seem really weird and awkward for a third party. When they are both sweating really badly after practices, they would still dance together, and it look really erotic, it was like that they were at a club, not caring for their surroundings.
46:
When I went into the cafe, I was really tired so I zoned out.
But I suddenly smelled a really strong male’s perfume and turned around to see. I went OMG it’s my nyongtory when I realised it was them. I have seen BIGBANG a few times, but other than on stage, I have only seen nyongtory in public once. I kept observing them but I was quite far away so I couldn’t hear what they have said.
I didn’t hear what they say, but I saw their actions.
Both of them ordered cake? It was the same dessert and they either ordered coffee or hot chocolate, it was something hot. Both of them just sat there and ate their food. 
Seungri didn’t expect the drink to be so hot so he just drank it. When his face started showing the discomfort of drinking such a hot stuff, GD started laughing really hard. He told Seungri something before grabbing a tissue from the waiter and helped him cleaned his mouth. 
While GD was helping Seungri clean, GD said something that made Seungri laughed, Seungri then said something like ‘Ah~ Hyung~” 
Then GD continued helping him clean his mouth.
I think Seungri burned his tongue so GD signalled him to show his tongue and Seungri did. 
It just totally became a nyongtory zone. 
I wanted to take a picture but the people in front of me wasn’t them so I was afraid, I also wanted to go forward to get their signatures, but I was afraid that I would break the nyongtory zone. Thinking back now, I really regretted my decisions. Not taking a picture, Not getting signatures.
47:
Not sure if it’s in August or September.
GD and Seungri went a store to have soup.
They sat in a corner and someone in the store observed them because he thought they looked like Seungri and GD. 
While they were eating, Seungri was burned by how hot the soup was.
He frowned, not knowing what to do. 
GD who noticed grabbed his chin and asked him to show his tongue.
Seungri did and GD blew some air on the tongue.
Seungri showed a disgusted face before saying “Ah~ Why are you like this?” which resulted in GD laughing really loudly.
48:
It was raining and that person was going to cross the road.
He then saw two people, the taller one holding the umbrella and the shorter one just beside him. He then realised it’s GD and Seungri. 
When they were allowed to cross the road, Seungri suddenly snatched the umbrella and ran off. GD just laughed and followed along, being drenched in the rain. 
When this person made eye contact with GD, GD faster walked up to Seungri and he heard this conversation happened between them.
Seungri: Hyung. It’s on the right!
GD: Walk towards the left!
Seungri: Uh. I don’t want to. I want to go to the right!
GD: If we go left, I’ll buy good food for you neh?
GD used this method to hoax Seungri and eventually he agreed before both of them went left.
49:
Seungri and GD went to buy clothes together.
GD didn’t try the clothes on himself and instead place the clothes on Seungri, “This one looks good right?” He started being all happy and excited by himself while Seungri was really calm. In the end, GD bought a bag full of clothes for him and looked really proud.
50:
During the ‘She can’t get enough’ era, female dance partner was the focus.
During their breaks, They would always go out together.
If they were to go buy things, “I am following Seungri to buy it~” before they both disappear. 
GD would give Seungri a back hug and they would leave like that, Seungri would always complain it is hard to walk around in.
GD then let him go and just walked off by himself.
Seungri would feel uneasy and follow him out really quickly.
The members will then joke around saying that they are like a couple.

anonymous asked:

What do you think are the chances of it happening?

It = todoroki and yaoyo’s relationship? I’m assuming???

Kinda hard to predict at the moment but I think they have a pretty high chance of having at leastttttttt some moment that establishes they have a ‘special’ relationship with each other in the ending chapter of the manga. 

So far they already have some great scenes together (he voted for her in like chapter 12, that gets mentioned in chapter 63, then we have 64, and then more subtle parts of the bakugou rescue arc…yaomomo, along with deku, gives support to todo when he failed he provisional hero license exam…not to mention official art/drama cd). I wouldn’t be surprised if one rescues the other in a future chapter (omg horikoshi-sensei make it happen). 


P.S: Speaking of which, I laughed pretty hard when yaoyo said “I trust Todoroki!” during the hospital scene when Kirishima, Deku and Iida were there. If I were Kirishima I’d be like “uhh you dun trust me?????” 

Thanks for your ask!!!

The hardest part about seeing a show you’re really invested in live is just how restrained the audience is. Sure, people will laugh when there’s comedy but do you have any idea how hard it was not to make the amount of squealing noises I wanted to make during the Sano-hen equivalent of the bloodlust scenes?

So hard. Much suffering. I almost ate my sweater once.
