me, last night when I thought my best friend was abandoning me: I hate her and she’s the worst person ever and I’m never going to speak to her again so she’s knows how I feel!! my best friend, this morning: hey, wanna hang out today me, now: 💖💖💖💕💕💕❤❤😍😍😍😍✨✨❤❤💕😍😍💖💓😍💓💘💘😍💞💖💕💛💟😍💜❣💙💓💚💓💕❤😍😍💕💘😍💗 YES!!! ABSOLUTELY!! LET ME CLEAR MY SCHEDULE!!
ok since i literally never shut up about how much i love youngmin i just wanted to talk about my last gifset aka the scene where youngmin gives dongbin a pep talk right after practicing in front of boa. i could talk about everything regarding boys & girls team but i’m gonna focus on this specific moment because it speaks so much about his personality and shows us a little bit of how wonderful he is !!!
everyone here knows that youngmin is always working behind the scenes to help out the other kids and this instance right here is the best example of that. the boys went to sit down in the back and it was another group’s turn to practice so none of the cameras or attention should’ve been on them but that’s how genuine he is; he never intended for people to see or hear his encouragement for dongbin in the first place. he wasn’t doing it bc he wanted to look good in front of the camera, he was doing it for the sake of his team member and his team member only. he wasn’t making a big fuss out of it and he wasn’t trying to prove how nice of a person he was. his compassion for the other boys on this show is simply so genuine.
when youngmin talked about how nervous he was, he wasn’t comparing his situation to dongbin’s. even tho he was a bnm trainee who had a lot of burden and pressure, he wasn’t using it as a way to guilt dongbin. he didn’t mean “oh you shouldn’t be nervous, i’m the one who has more pressure and more consequences, etc.” or anything that made dongbin feel inferior; in fact, he was sharing his worries with dongbin to make him realize that they were both the same. he was letting dongbin know that he understood how nervous he was bc he felt the same way too, that it was natural for them to be nervous and they shouldn’t be ashamed of it. here he was acting as an older figure by reassuring dongbin that even tho they’re nervous, they can still do this.
another important thing that youngmin does is that he doesn’t blame dongbin for his lack of rapping skills. yes, everyone knows that dongbin’s rapping skills are not up to par and that he’s struggling, but he never outright criticizes him for not being able to do something. instead he addressed dongbin’s fear of failing onstage bc his confidence is what really makes or breaks his performance. when youngmin points out to dongbin that he has performed well before and that he can do it again, he’s reminding him of his value and how successful he can (and will) be. not only does that help dongbin gain some more self-esteem, it shows how much he cares about him to remember his past achievements when they weren’t even on the same team.
the tone youngmin uses might seem intimidating at first bc he’s talking so fast and firmly but when you pair it with his hand gestures and body posture, you can definitely tell that he’s just concerned and wants to be able to help ease dongbin’s troubled mind. he gives dongbin his full attention and even takes his hand into his for support. he never breaks eye contact and the fist bump he initiates at the end makes it clear to dongbin that he is not angry with him and that he is not blaming him in the slightest. youngmin knows how to communicate with others well, especially with those younger than him since he has a younger brother at home, and it really helps him establish the trust and bond between him and his team members as both a mentor and a friend who wants the best for him. i don’t know how dongbin views youngmin but compared to how his previous team treated him when they were picking the center, i hope he was able to see how much youngmin truly cared for him and wanted him to improve with his own ability.
anyways that’s all i wanted to say about this, or all i remember right now anyways i just really love youngmin a lot and the way he treats other people on the show is really inspiring he’s truly an angel a gift to the world and i love him so much ;;;
If you’re a Larrie that writes Harry & Louis fic...
You will have probably come across people that leave comments on AO3 like:
‘I can’t read this, the fact your think they’re together automatically makes your story (insert something crappy)’
‘There’s no way Louis could be a doctor (for example) he’s far too (insert something crappy) ‘
And like me you probably just delete and move on. But there are a few accounts on ao3 that target Larrie writers and it’s tiring, especially as they target new/less well known writers who are more likely to be put off by them.
You don’t have to put up with it.
Those sorts of comments, that stray into ‘shipping politics’ are in breach of their terms of service and you can report them. If you go to the bottom of your story, you will see a link that says ‘report abuse’. It’s really easy to complete - just be sure not to delete the offending comment as they need to see it to do anything about it.
I reported a comment recently and they took it seriously. The users in question will get a warning, if they carry on their account will be suspended, if they still persist their account can be deleted.
“WHAT. THE ACTUAL. FUCK.” Arin yelled into the microphone, as he had once again failed the nearly impossible level he was working on. “C'mon Arin, you got this.” Dan tried encouraging him. “Okay, fine. One more go, and then I’m done.”
Arin was dead silent as he concentrated on his game. He watched his character fall into the hands of death, and he felt him self fall into despair. He groaned angrily and set the controller down. “Next time on fuckin’ Ga//me Gr//um/ps. Fuck this shit.” He mumbled quietly. Dan let out a burst of laughter. They turned off the recording, and Dan said “Hey, how about we go for a little treat to make up for that fuckin’ agonizing level?” “Whatcha got in mind?” “How about some ice cream?” “Oh, fuck yes.”
Dan and Arin walked to a local DQ and went inside. “What do you want, bro?” Danny asked. “I dunno. Guess I’ll just have a chocolate cone or somethin’.” “Alright. I think I’m gonna get one of those Reese’s blizzard things or whatever.”
They ordered their ice creams and went outside to eat. It was a pretty nice day, the sky was overcast but there wasn’t any rain coming anytime soon. It was kind of chilly, but it wasn’t unbearable. A gentle breeze gusted through the parlor, giving the place a very calm atmosphere. The two men made small talk as they quietly ate their frozen treats. It wasn’t awkward, they were just enjoying the quiet. Dan looked at Arin. His thoughts began to drift, and he started to wonder as to how he got a friend this amazing. “God, I love him so fuckin’ much.”
“What was that?”
Shit, did i say that out loud? He blushed gently. “U-um… nothing…”
“Don’t lie to me, Daniel. I know you said something.” Arin had a smug look about his face.
“I-I said I love you…” Danny was mumbling. It almost sounded like he said “olive juice”
“What was that?”
“I love you, Arin!”
“Love you too, babe.” He winked.
