i might as well have some fun with this

One of These Nights (4/?); jongyu; pg

Jinki knows that he’s gay. What he doesn’t know is how to handle a crush on someone as entwined in the music industry as he is.

part 1 - part 2 - part 3

and here’s part 4! ^^ i’ll try and get this whole fic up on ao3 sometime soon as well. this part goes through hello era, up to swc 1, and ends with jongyu having to say some goodbyes for a while since shinee is beginning their japanese debut (2011).

also, fun note maybe: i imagine that in this au, jong got the inspiration for one of his early songs from the last scene – i kinda wonder if it’s obvious which one, but hopefully y’all can enjoy it! there might be a bigger gap between this part and the next than there was between 3 and 4, because i haven’t started editing the next bit yet. ^^; but i’ll try to keep it MUCH shorter than the gap between 2 and 3 was, lmao.

Some of my old followers from my old blog might remember Faith, but if you don’t, well, here he is! He served as a rival of sort for Rose and Ross, but is dateable. Just needs take some.. a lot of effort LOL! Warning though, I might be playing around with his design a little more, so don’t be too surprised if you notice some changes later on! For now, just have some fun with him c:

Personal Updates

Hey hey everyone! So some of you guys might have noticed I’ve been a lot quieter the past two weeks. I recently got a new full-time job (!!) so I’ve been doing training and all that fun stuff.

Originally posted by rainbows-are-amazing

It’s gonna be a bit hectic for the first few weeks so I’ll be popping on tumblr randomly, but hooopefully everything settles down soon~

But as always, I’ll still be around so if you need to reach me or want me to see something, you can always @ me, send me an ask, or shoot me a PM!

Hope everyone’s doing well! <3

Open question. To anyone

So… Derek bought the Oculus Rift, and of course I immediately yelled about getting some horror games because I hate myself and he downloaded Dreadhalls.

Let me preface this question by saying that I was told by someone who knows me very well that experiencing a horror game in virtual reality might actually be the thing to drive me literally insane.

SO - would anyone ever actually be interested in watching a stream of me playing this thing? 

(you know, because I have so much free time and all)

But really! I think this could be fun. Let me know if you would want to watch me dissolve into psychosis :D

part 2

Title: Metallic pt. 5

Genre: Angst

Pairing: Jumin Han x MC/Reader/You

a/n❗️
have fun reading, everyone!! this is the part 5 of Metallic!
Part 4.

Disclaimer❗️
this prompt is based on days 7 - 9 of Jumin’s route but i took it from there. fic contains a possible theme that might disturb some people. i used some characters on his route but the story line is entirely different as well as their relationships and some facts that i’ve changed to fit the story. you’ve been warned!

- light spoilers on his route -

❝ You are to me
A part of me just like anatomy
You're pulling me
You're pulling me in like you're gravity

I'm notorious for thinking you're full of beautiful
Instead of hollow
Sugar on your lips, it's hard to kill
Jagged like a pill, so hard to swallow.

Day of the Party
12:00 NOON; approximately 3 days passed since the last voicemail.


He never contacted you again.
Perhaps he might have got the gist that you didn’t want to talk – or to at least see, feel or hear his presence?

It was sad, actually. To actually come to realize that what stung the most was not his continuous pursuit for you after the deed but his absence after only 3 days.
You sighed against your nose.
He gave up?

You were jerked away from your thoughts when you felt a hand gently tap you on your shoulders, as if to make you realize that you need to get back on to the reality.
Today is the party.

You’re going to see the rest of the RFA.
But why aren’t you excited?

You were able to come home 2 days ago when Seven told everyone that the danger is solved. Though he was not his usual self but more of a broken man than before. Was he like that? You can remember him being jolly and cheerful but after the incident regarding the hacker, he drastically changed.
Was there a catalyst for it?

“You can look a bit more excited.” You heard Jaehee’s amused voice as she lifted an eyebrow to look at you, seeming to appreciate the dress you were wearing. It was honestly an old dress – your first prom dress to be precise. It’s a good thing you did not grow on it, the size remained the same. Or was it a bad thing? It’s a dark blue, silk clothed bubble-type, off-shoulder dress. You paired it with a gold-colored stiletto you bought at an auction at the mall yesterday. A small handbag and then you’re ready.

“I try.” You shrugged and smiled sheepishly as you fixed your already straight hair with the palm of your hands, trying to tame it. You sighed as you felt frustrated – has your hair been this stubborn?

“Let me.” You heard her say as she gently laid her memo pad and pen to the counter of the ladies’ bathroom as she touched your hair from behind. “You’re very beautiful, MC. So you should smile more.”

You felt your cheeks heat up at this – Jaehee rarely compliments and when she does, it’s kinda heartwarming? It’s like getting an approval of hers. She told you at first she doesn’t fully trust you yet – and here you two, bonding as she fixed your hair. Pretty unexpected.

You saw how she carefully braided the sides of your hair and tied both ends on the back of your head, making it look like you’re wearing a flower crown. You smiled a bit but it didn’t reach your eyes. Why does it have to be like this? Isn’t it just right for you to have your space after what happened but why do you seem so guilty about it?

Jaehee seems to know the cause of your severely dropping mood as she looked at you knowingly – wait, why was she looking at you that way? Does she know something? Or was it that obvious?

“You can try and forget him, yes?” She asked, adjusting the rim of her glasses. “Enjoy the day, MC. You deserved it – you worked hard for it.” A small encouragement and you felt yourself smile a little. Lately, you couldn’t fully smile to yourself.

“Thank you, Jaehee.” You murmured as she laughed at your shyness. “…really. For everything – for having my back too.”

“It’s no problem.” She smiled warmly as she urged you to finally go inside the party halls to greet some guests. “For starters, I might work for him but it doesn’t mean I have to agree to his ways.”

biteswhenprovoked said: It’s Mark Hamill’s Joker, right? He’s the best Joker.

I am going to be incredibly brave and say YES, Mark Hamill is the best Joker.  Please no hate mail!

Look, I just re-watched Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker today, and he had some prime line deliveries in that.  And some might point to the flashback scene as the best stuff, I think his quips with Terry are better.  With Bruce, he was dedicated to destroying him and so was just being a friggin’ jag– with Terry, he was having fun because he wasn’t taking Terry seriously.  

“Well, if it’s a whoopin’ yer a-wantin’!”

03.18.17 // update

as some of you might have noticed, i haven’t been very diligent with the march study challenge. i’ve been overwhelmed by schoolwork as well as complications in my personal life, and i just haven’t had the time to post very much original content (a lot of it was old photos oops). i’m probably not going to be completing the challenge unfortunately because of the aforementioned reasons. thank you to everyone who has supported me w/my high school acceptance/rejection deal and everyone who participated in my blogrates (it was a lot of fun!!), and just all you lovely people in general :3

on brighter note, i’m currently on a four day weekend (though most of it will be spent at competitions and tournaments) so i have a bit more time to work on my notes. i actually really like how this post turned out; when it was just the two pics on my phone not together, it was pretty boring but they go really well together.

i know i’m kinda far away from 1k right now, but i was just wondering, would you guys be interested in me revealing my face, sort of as a thank you for your support? tell me what you think!!

So I might have become quickly obsessed with a certain ink demon

With some zoom ins if you click! 
(I only used the highest quality pens I have, for Bendy. And per usual ink standards, I couldn’t fix any mistakes once they were made, so if you see any, I probably already know)

Wow drawing a 1930 style isn’t easy and I’m sure I’m not doing it right in 500 places, but I enjoy the simplistic face bendy has as it’s more fun to, well, bend.

Advent Box

All my friends know I pretty much kinda hate Christmastime. I hate every day after Halloween, until the new year. I hate hearing the songs in stores, seeing the obnoxious commercials, being constantly reminded that I’m single and alone, etc. etc.

So then my therapist prompted me to start a tradition for myself that would make things more fun, to take back the season and make it fun for ME.

Well growing up I always loved advent calendars, getting little things every day helps the days go by better you know? You every say “I’m gonna treat myself today, get me a little something.”

So that’s basically the idea…but the fun part being everything is in the SAME size boxes. 

For reference, those are cupcake boxes I got at JoAnn’s for wedding cupcake favors, so try the wedding aisle. They came in a pack of 24, so, perfect!

Each box will have something only a couple dollars, like stocking stuffers, but they don’t have to cost money. Some might just have a piece of paper saying I should treat myself and go walking at the park, or to go window shopping or stuff like that, to get me out of the house.

Other ideas/things I’m gonna put in-

  • Those mini airplane bottles of liquor
  • Christmas socks
  • Nail polish
  • Dark chocolate
  • Small candle
  • Jewelry dish
  • Scented wax for wax warmers
  • Soap
  • $5 gift card to Starbucks
  • $5 gift card to favorite fast food place
  • $3 in bills, go for a walk to the gas station and get a soda
  • Hot cocoa packet with marshmallows
  • Go to redbox, rent something you haven’t seen
  • Go for a run
  • Go over to a friend’s house

It’s just important to remember to give yourself self-care when you’re dealing with depression, which I think just makes this a great idea to get through the shitty holidays. Sorta my version of TREAT YO SELF!

Taking the Pain (Lucifer Morningstar)

Character: Lucifer Morningstar
Words: 2140
Warning(s): Injury, blood, some swearing
A/N: Okay, besides my ask box got completely cleaned for no reason, I was happy I was able to get this one-shot done. I know the ending is very very crappy, but I thought it might of been cute to have Luci and you banter at each other while being all lovey dovey.

Since I’ve been putting together so many Megaman sketchdumps lately I figured I might as well make one for my gemsonas! Over half these sketches are at least year old, but since I haven’t been posting anything for them lately, I figured it’d be fun to compile old & newer doodles together (there are even a few past Gemsona-HQ prompts mixed in there). The age of some sketches can be measured by the puffiness of Moon’s pants- they’re definitely a lot slimmer now than they used to be! I’m still working on her reformed design since I poofed her a few weeks ago; hopefully I’ll have a ref of that up someday.

Festivals in Narnia

So this is totally during the Pevensie reign as queens and kings of Narnia. I imagine they have festivals to celebrate holidays and events. These are just some head cannons of what it would be like. 

- Lots of food and events.

- Everyone from around Narnia is invited and you can bet everyone shows up.

- The Pevensie join in the competition as well because it’s fun for all.

- In archery, Susan has won second almost every time. Only one person has ever bet her. It is consider an honor to get second because most doubt that Queen Susan can be beat.

- Peter prefers to watch many of the events but will participate in sword fighting. He says it helps him gain more skills.

- Lucy often separates from the family not even a few minutes into the event in order to see more people/creatures/animals. The family has learned to let her be and usually meets up with her towards the middle of the day.

- Edmund and Susan tease Peter throughout the festival because girls are constantly hitting on him.

- Edmund’s horse Phillip talks smack up until the festival because he believes him and Edmund could kick everyone’s butt in different parts of the competitions. They usually do with Edmund owing Phillip lots of carrots and treats.

- The family’s favorite part is seeing others from their battle against the White Witch during festivals. Most went home to their families and don’t have time to make it up to the castle.

- The night would end with songs and dancing.

round 1 of 7 Fake AH flower-themed drawings.

Jeremy’s flowers are delphiniums (fun/joy, and a big heart), mayflowers (welcome), and mignonettes (value/worth). Basically I decided delphiniums were absolutely necessary and picked the other two to complement… (and some people on the AH amino might have influenced my choices as well -.-)

I’m planning on definitely doing 7 of these, (maaayybe 8 if I’m feeling mad angsty). Absolute stretch, I bring in the B team. Either way, this is one of the happier ones, because I’m a pile of emotions.

Also speedpaint!

Musical motifs in Pokémon Sun/Moon

Sun/Moon have a very well thought-out soundtrack with lots of recurring leitmotifs, so I thought it would be fun to write about it! In this post I’m going to point out some musical connections you might not have thought about. I’m not going to write about every single recurring motif in the game, just the ones that I think are interesting and/or non-obvious. Still, if you find something that I missed, please let me know!

Oh, and I’ll refer you to YouTube videos of the songs so you can listen for yourself. I won’t embed them, since that would take up tons of space, but there’ll be links. Now let’s get started!

The Kahunas and the Tapu

Let’s first talk about some motifs that seems to be strongly associated with the Island Challenge and Alolan culture.

To begin with, there’s a recurring phrase associated with the Kahunas and the Tapu that appears all over the soundtrack. Let’s say we call it the “Kahuna leitmotif”, for lack of a better name. You can hear it prominently in the Kahuna battle theme at 0:03 and at 0:17. It’s also the melody of the (out-of-battle) Kahuna theme (kicks in at 0:05), so it seems pretty firmly connected to the Kahunas. At the same time, it also appears in the Ruins theme (try listening at 0:16), as well as the actual Tapu battle theme (try 0:38), so it’s definitely associated with the Tapu too! Since the Kahunas are pretty much appointed by the Tapu to be their human representatives, it makes a lot of sense that they have a shared leitmotif.

Secondly, there’s a short phrase that appears in the Tapu songs but not the Kahuna songs; let’s call it the “Tapu leitmotif”. You can hear it right at the start of the Ruins theme, and in the Tapu battle theme at the beginning and at 0:33. Unlike the above Kahuna leitmotif, this one is exclusively associated with the Tapu, and only seems to play when you’re actually in their presence.

Finally, the main melody of the Kahuna Battle theme is of course that of the Trial theme, thus musically connecting the Kahunas to the Trials and the Trial Captains. Makes sense, since battling a Kahuna is in itself a Grand Trial. It also happens to be the catchiest, snazziest song of this generation, so it makes for a great battle theme, hehehe!

Team Skull and the Aether Foundation

Team Skull’s leitmotif is pretty easy to pick out, it’s right there at the start of the Team Skull theme. It’s also in their battle theme, and in Plumeria’s battle theme, and… well, you get the picture. The melody of Guzma’s theme is actually also the same leitmotif, but with a different rhythm, so it sounds quite different. Still, listen closely and you’ll hear it’s the same ten notes in the same order, hehe!

The Aether Foundation also has an easily recognizable motif that appears in most of their tracks, perhaps most notably the Aether House music at 0:14 and the (more sinister) Aether Foundation battle theme at 0:16. But you knew that already!

What’s really interesting, though, is that you can find a trace of the Aether Foundation leitmotif in Guzma’s battle theme, starting at 0:42. It’s heavily distorted, but I would argue it’s there! Nice bit of musical foreshadowing, perhaps?

The Ultra Beasts

The Ultra Beast battle theme is pretty cool, but did you know the same melody plays in Ultra Space, slowed down? Most people don’t pick up on this since the Ultra Space music only plays for a very short segment of the game, but it’s a cute detail, hehe.

Solgaleo/Lunala

This one’s not too easy to catch either. Try listening to the Solgaleo/Lunala battle theme at 0:26, where the melody comes in. Now compare it to the Altar of the Sunne/Moone music at 0:08. Again, even though it’s slowed down, you can tell it’s the same tune! Cool!

Regular Alola Battles

The Wild Pokémon Battle and Trainer Battle themes don’t really contain any overt references to other songs. (I guess it’s fitting that “regular” battle themes should have their own independent identities, since they help establish their generation’s unique atmosphere.) However, both of these battle themes make use of a descending blind octave passage - I’d say that’s a big part of what gives these Alola tracks their distinctive sound! So I thought I’d point it out anyway, hehe.

Check out the Wild Pokémon battle theme at 0:16 and the Trainer battle theme at 0:37, and I bet you’ll hear it too!

Gladion and Voltorb Flip

Okay, listen to the beginning of Gladion’s battle theme and tell me he’s not connected to the Goldenrod Game Corner in some way. I’m sure we can find an in-universe justification for this somewhere…

… r-right?
