Looking at your Twitter feed, I noticed you often write in French. Is all the band fluent in the language?
I’m fairly conversational. I started learning French a year ago, because my girlfriend used to live in France as a kid. Her dad still lives there, so obviously I have to go see him. I think it’s impolite not to try to learn his first language. Dan speaks it a little and [drummer] Woody is learning German. Dan and [keyboardist] Kyle are learning sign language, which is really remarkable. There’s a lot of free time while touring and collectively, we made the decision – instead of staring at Twitter or playing games on your phone, why don’t we all learn something interesting?
EXO Reaction when a fan they met at a fan meeting becomes a new idol year later
Xoxo, Ara~ /I don’t own any of the gifs used, unless stated otherwise/
*Composes something for you* “She supported me so much, I should do the same. I hope she likes this song… would be nice to hear her sing it”
*Always shows his support and admiration* “You did it man! You made it so far, I’m proud of you!”
*Enjoys the music so much* “Woah~ So good… that face looks familiar tho… wasn’t she.. an EXO-L? Woah… our fans are so talented.. this is amazing”
*Hugs him every time he sees him at events* “Look at you! I still remember when you were a baby. Now let me hug you my friend!”
*Become friends real fast* “Hey! Are you practicing? Do you want to practice together” *And he always helps*
*Has been there since she told him she wanted to become a star* “Wow! Look at you! You look like an idol now! No… you are an idol now!”
*Gets ready for his fan and meet* “I wonder if this is okay… will he recognize me? I hope he does, it’s my turn to support him now.”
*Gives him advice from man to man* “And this is how manly man look even manlier”
*Who’s the fangirl now* “Ahhh she’ so pretty! I want to talk to her more… her music is everything!”
*Even though they aren’t that close, he knows it’s hard the way to become a star. He he is always silently supporting and slowly becomes like a mentor*
*Really excited* “Omg it’s you!!! We met remember?! I’m so happy that you are here, we’ll be best friends!”
*Everytime they ask him about you in interviews he says how proud he is of you* “We met a while ago but she never told me she was auditioning. Now that I see her here I’m so proud that she made it so far…..”
She should feel dirty, nauseous, repulsed, but his breath is hot against her skin and she cannot ignore the crackle of his magic pushing against her bones. Tom Riddle is magnetic in all the meanings of the word, and she blames hormones and puberty for the rush of desire that sets her blood on fire when he presses closer.
“You’re sick,” she whispers unconvincingly, and he smiles, sharp and feral.
From @stephanieboydworks - Omg. If only it were this fast in real life. The base is sitting on a slightly curved mold that I made a few weeks ago. It’ll give a nice swoop to the bottom. The sides are thrown on the wheel. Essentially a bowl without a bottom. I’ll now let this piece dry for a while and firm up, then I’ll take it off the mold for the finally clean up before firing. If you look thru my feed you’ll see a striped black and white vessel that was made using the same process. .

Tikki helps Marinette remember her schedule, or at least aims too as much as possible.
Marinette’s home is right next to the school.
25, Tikki hangs outside the purse again.
Tikki doesn’t recognize the video game’s music, suggesting that Marinette hasn’t played UMS around her.
There is a move in USM called the Kitty Paw.
Marinette’s unaware of this competition, so it probably wasn’t too broadcasted around the school. That or it just went over her head and she’s been more focused on other things.
Adrien bleps when playing.
Kim brags about his baefriend, is surprised to see Max lose.
Max needs a few seconds to calm down at the face of his loss before he can be a good sport about it.
It looks like Kim is giving Adrien shade XD
Alya, who is usually a huge push for Marinette to spend time with Adrien by any means, even skipping out on responsibilities Marinette wanted to do herself (Climatika with Mari wanting to babysit Manon); doesn’t approve of Marinette making a choice to try and spend time with Adrien. Evidently it’s due to her thinking Marinette won’t be serious about representing the school.
Bustier appears to be a common host for a lot of the school projects. She really likes to be involved with her students. It’s really nice to see.
Marinette is determined to beat the score in five minutes. She is confident that she can.
Adrien is up to see what Marinette can do and is the only one to move and let her have the chance.
Kim is unaware of Marinette’s gaming skills.
It appears Alya is too, being unsure about Marinette going for this.
Max assumes Marinette doesn’t know how to play. Marinette is quick to correct him.
Love seeing her play with her dad, he so huge and she so smol. They both furrow their brows when getting into the game and haunch forward. They both also move their arms around when getting into the battle, Marinette has a victory dance and Tom dramatically flops on the couch when he looses. During this time Tikki must just hide away in Marinette’s room.
Max doesn’t seem too sure about Marinette’s skill but is up to face her.
Kim is the first to cheer Max on.
Marinette is well practiced, suggesting that she and Tom play often, and under a time limit of five minutes, she is beating Max in possibly one. Adrien awed, as are Alya, Kim, and Rose. This backs that Alya is unaware of how good a gamer Marinette is.
Even in gaming Marinette plans out her moves.
I say she beat Max in about a minute or two.
Kim is the only one not cheering for Marinette.
Max really doesn’t take loosing well. That suggests to me that he hasn’t lost often before, and by Kim’s bragging, perhaps Adrien was his first loss ever, and then Marinette is his 2nd and she beat him even faster than Adrien did.
Marinette does feel guilty about making Max sad. But is over it as Adrien proposes practicing at her place.
Alya is very set that Marinette represents their school well, this matters a lot to her, more than being the ultimate wingman. It’s kinda curious, I can see her caring about representation and having a good reputation, but with most of the season having her a huge Adrienette supporter, this is kinda odd.
Max is very upset with his loss to Marinette, declaring that it’s a travesty (false and absurd). This probably is his 2nd loss, and it’s a sore blow to loose quickly again and in a shorter amount of time. And possibly due to Marinette being a girl, which socially is uncommon and Max himself assumes Marinette didn’t know what she was doing. I’d blame Max’s akumization on him being a sore loser about this than on Marinette, and not knowing how to really cope about losing aside from bad mouthing the outcome, even more so seeing that he thinks he should be in it and deserves to be in it. Those are proud thoughts right there.
26, Tikki hangs outside the purse again, this time scolding Marinette for joining the competition just to spend time with Adrien. And personally I’m not really seeing the issue? I know Marinette’s not going in represent the school, but I don’t get the impression that Max was doing the same. By how he talks, he was doing it to show he’s the best and thus far isn’t taking it too well to not being the best.
I can agree it’s a selfish choice on Marinette’s part, but this is also a huge step for her too. Up at this point, if the list I’m watching really is the most likely the canon of the s1 episodes; this is Marinette’s first real effort on her own to try and spend time with Adrien, with no one suggesting or pushing her to act on this. It is unfortunate that she made Max upset, but that comes with competing, you win and you lose. But over all, this is a big step for Marinette confidence wise, she’s making the move on her own for once, and I don’t see this being a bad way to spend time with Adrien, playing games together.
But to see Tikki against it, for Marinette upsetting someone unintentionally just to spend time with her crush… it really seems Tikki is against Marinette being selfish, to always put others before herself, to be a constant giver and supporter. It’s what a true LB should be, but there is a drawback to being a constant giver and there can be a point that you just give too much and you can only support and make so many happy all the time and not have something for you. It is ok to be selfish, especially for your own personal happiness and comfort. You’re no good helping others if you yourself are spread so thin or you’re unhappy, when you don’t allow yourself to give into your own wants, it can be damaging. Something Plagg seems to get as he does encourage Adrien to give into selfishness (Lady Wifi, thinking he should’ve looked despite that breaking LB’s trust). There is a middle to being selfish and selfless, and with Tikki and Plagg divided as two opposing sides, it makes sense that they would have opposite views on selfishness.
I don’t think Marinette is entirely at fault for giving into her selfishness, she has been struggling this whole year so far to spend time with Adrien but largely just fumbles with him. It’s not a solid choice on her part, but this is a big step in her development. She is confident and comfortable enough to try and move to spend time with her crush. It’s not ideal, I can agree, but this is a step forward. This also provides Max a chance to learn that losing is a part of life, and by his reaction, it is something he needs to learn.
Adrien stands poised before Tom and Sabine. Tom taught Marinette everything about gaming.
Adrien is surprised that Marinette talks about him. Most likely to him thinking they’re not the best of friends due to her behavior.
Shipping parents ;3 also it’s so nice to see Tom accepting of Adrien and not the jealously protective dad. It is an amusing trope but it’s nice to see it not done for once.
Accidental hand touch, mutual shyness. So awkward. Looking at each other when the other isn’t.
By Marinette’s reaction and frustration with her parents, suggests to me that this happens a lot. That maybe every time Marinette brings over a new friend and it’s their first time meeting that friend, her parents are super excited and invade Marinette’s space a lot to feed said new friend, involve them and learn about them, to a point that Marinette has a hard time hanging out with said friend alone. And Tom offers to be included here so there is a chance that in her household, Marinette may not often get a lot of solo time with new friends that she brings over and it’s frustrating for her. I’m guessing anyway.
And with how Max is as an akuma, pushed by his emotion and what drives him, yeah he is someone that is very proud.
Marinette is such a chill player. And it’s a shame Alya isn’t able to see that yes, Marinette is able to focus on the game.
Omg, Marinette looked ready to murder Tom.
Adrien longs for cookies, but they’re out of his reach.
And it looks like between the two, Tom is the worse invader. Quite the social butterfly.
I wonder how long ago Marinette made that charm. I speculate before she got the earrings since she has gotten luckier after Tikki, and with her dealing with bad luck before, that would push for her to have the charm then.
Tom is shipping them so hard.
I want a quiche now.
While Marinette’s reaction to the akuma is “oh shit that’s not good”, Adrien seems to give it a “seriously?!” glare. He is also defensive seeing an akuma with his “civilian” friend.
Adrien’s the first to react to danger. Is a little flustered to wind up close to Marinette.
Adrienette hand reach.
That has to be one of the more serious faces I’ve seen Adrien make before he transforms. He isn’t too pleased this time.
Thus far, this is the biggest effort Adrien makes in getting a civilian to safety. It looks like he took Marinette a street or two away from Gamer.
Marinette isn’t impressed with Max.
Chat is touched by Marinette’s concern for Adrien, and of course just has to show off this whole Marichat sequence.
Chat is surprised that LB knows UMS. LB is defensive, most likely because Max also assumed she didn’t game because of being a girl. Chat though is happy to find something they both like.
Animation error, HM shouldn’t know what the ring looks like untransformed.
Chat mimics Tom.
CATBUG ROBOT. Love it’s design.
Pacific Rim vibes.
ZUKO SPIN. :OO if this is a reference to AtLA, could Marinette possibly be a fan of atla? Pleeeeeeeaaase?
I think she just shouted Lady Bombs.
All the references, bless this episode. Now I feel like I’m watching Super Smash Bros.
Now Alya is up for supporting Marinette playing with Adrien. Girl I’m getting mixed signals here. Also Max is still being a bit of a sore loser, still being proud. I can’t quite say if Max really learned anything this episode, I suppose so over all but still…
Actually I wound up seeing the storyboard for this ep and I wish this one scene had stayed in, where Adrien moves to give Marinette’s charm back but Nino pulled her away before he could and he pockets it, deciding that he’d give it back later. Why couldn’t that stay in?
