Pregnancy Headcanons: Mystic Messenger

I’m a sucker for prengancy-related headcanons/one-shots/roleplays. I’m weird I know. Anyway here are some pregnancy headcanons for the RFA (slightly nsfw)(obvious spoilers)(Cussing)

Order: Yoosung, Zen, Jumin, Jaehee, Seven, Saeran, V


Yoosung

¤ Oh our little innocent cinnamonbun Yoosung isn’t so innocent

¤ Infact, 4/5 times he initiates the frickity-frackity

¤ Just so happens, though, that condom was expired

¤ And it was evident when it had broken

¤ And he had begun to panic

    × “it’s leaking- Wait it’s leaking, MC it’s leaking what do we do? Ahh-”

¤ He ended up running out and buying like 5 pregnancy test

¤ But the baby factory doesn’t work like that so they all came back negative.

¤ So he thought you were fine

¤ Until two weeks later when-

     × “Oh my God, MC are you okay? You sound like your dying”

¤ You made him buy more pregnancy test

    × “But the 5 you took before came back negative”

¤ He ended up buying 7 more, cause

    × “One of them could be faulty”

¤ You took 7 test, 5 of which back positive

¤ So Yoosung begun freaking out even more

    × “MC I’m so sorry I should have checked the expiration date this is all my fault”

¤ You couldn’t help but laugh

¤ That laughter quickly turn to tears because holy fuck your having a tiny human.

¤ Cue more panic from Yoosung

    × “MC?? No MC don’t cry or I’ll start crying too! MC”

¤ And here we have two crying grown children

¤ When the two of you finally calmed the hell down you begun to talk about it

    × You both came to the conclusion that you both weren’t ready for a responsibility of this magnitude and that the best option for the child would be for them do go into adoption

¤ Despite all that, Yoosung still did everything to make you comfortable

    × Mc.Rognalds at 4am? He’s got you covered. 

    × Extra pillows, even if that leaves him with none? Alright. 

     × Missing out on the most important, once in a life time quest, just so he can cuddle when you ask?

          € “Sorry guys, I have to do something Irl”

¤ When you *finally* go into labour, he freaks out, and you end up having to call the ambulance because he’s not calm enough to take you himself.

¤ Labour ends, and he probably won’t be able to use that hand for a while

¤ And then the doctor asks a simple question

     × “Would you both like to see the baby before signing the adoption papers?”

¤ You both kinda look at each other, silently deciding.

¤ And then he nods, and you nod, and the doctor goes off to get the baby.

¤ The baby is completely healthy. Perfect weight, and with bright violet eyes and just a little (H/c) hair.

¤ And as you get to hold the baby for a few minutes, he kinda just stares in awe.

¤ And the silence is broken

     × “MC”

     × “Yeah…”

     × “They… they kinda look like us, huh?”

     × “Mmhmm. They have your eyes”

     × “ And your hair… MC?”

     × “Yes, Yoosung?”

     × “Do you maybe wanna keep them? I mean I know we’re not really ready but people aren’t always ready, and maybe we can do it”

¤ And that was all it took.

 ÷BONUS÷

     × Yoosung has joined the chat

     × Mc has joined the chat

     × Mc: As many of you may have known, I was pregnant for the past 9 months

     × Zen: wait what?

     × Jaehee: I don’t believe you informed us

     × 707: Lololol they didn't 

     × Mc: Great news:

     × Yoosung: We’re keeping them!

     × Yoosung has left the chat

     × Mc has left the chat 

     × Zen: They’re joking right?


Zen

¤ Oh boy

¤ It was a common wonder if you were pregnant with this one.

¤ Because it was constantly

     × “Condoms can take the pleasure out of sex”

¤ That and birth control was a difficult thing to remember.

¤ So you kept a few pregnancy test

     × More like a box filled with them

¤ So when you took 2 test, and they both came back positive, you weren’t shocked

¤ But you decided to tell him in a more fun way

¤ So you bought baby carrots, a baby bottle and a pacifier 

¤ But when you got home, he was already there

¤ And holding a stick with pee

     × “Mc are you pregnant”

     × “Yes”

¤ You were disappointed because you had bought so much stuff to surprise him and he had found out in other means.

¤ But then he hugged you

     × “Mc I promise I’m going to be the best father that I can be, and I’ll always support the baby”

¤ And aww Zenny

¤ And then he proposed

     × “I know I don’t have a ring right now but marry me please”

     × “Of course”

¤ And waterworks come in, and well yeah its a happy day.

¤ He still does his plays, but will call you at every minute of the hour to make sure your okay

¤ If you want something, he will liTTERLY PAUSE REHERSAL SO HE CAN GO GET IT AND BRING IT TO YOU

     × “Zen where are you going?”

     × “Don’t worry, I’ll be back in a few minutes”

¤ Gets introuble alot, until he finally explains to the director whats going on

¤ When you go into labour, he’s in the middle of the real-deal play

¤ So his phone isn’t nearby

¤ When he finally hears the message he freaks out and runs to the hospital

¤ like litterly runs

¤ He gets there just on time, and won’t stop apologizing

     × “MC I’m so sorry, you know the premire was today and I didn’t have my phone on me”

     × “Stop apologizing and get over here”

¤ Push

¤ It’s a healthy baby.

¤ You got to hold the baby for about a minute before he starts complaining

     × “Come on MC I want to hold them too”

     × You’d glare at him “I just pushed them out of my va-jay-jay after holding them in my stomach for 9 months, I believe I can hold them longer than a minute”

¤ A happy little family


Jumin

¤ It wasn’t like you two were trying

¤ But you weren’t not trying either

¤ It was more of a if it happens it happens thing.

¤ So when it happened you were happy.

¤ You, ofcourse, went to the doctor first and got yourself checked

¤ And yep, 4 weeks pregnant.

¤ You managed to convice the doctor to give you a sonogram right there and then and you got a copy of it

¤ Now to tell Jumin

¤ You made his favourite dinner, made the table look nice.

¤ Four plates, one for you, another for Jumin, one for Elizabeth and finally one for the unborn child

¤ On the plate of the missing guest, the envelope that had the sonogram layed there. 

¤ When he gets home and dinner begins he’s absolutely confused 

    × “MC are we expecting guest?”

¤ Finally he notices the envelope, and becomes more curious

¤ He looks over at you, and you give him a nod that screams “Just open it already”

¤ So he does

¤ And he kinda stares at it for a while

¤ And you can’t read any emotion on his face

¤ And there’s just silence

¤ Until

    × “Is this a sonogram?”

    × “Yes”

    × “Is this your sonogram”

    × “Yes”

    × “Did you hear that Elizabeth 3rd? You will be a sister" 

¤ He eventually gets up and gives you a nice little kiss, that though it’s not too long means alot

¤ It’s joyous moment

¤ Low key scared that he will end up like his father

¤ When you find out you comfort him

     × ” Your father is your father, and you’re you"

¤ Now this boy will not let you do anything

¤ Right after the dinner, he hired a maid specifically for your needs only, durring the day time

¤ And at night when you get your cravings, he will get anything needed

¤ Well he won’t, but Jaehee will.

     × “Assistant Kang, I need you to buy some cheese with barbecue sauce and peanut butter”

     × “Mr.Han its 3:45 in the morning, where will I find that-”

     × He’s already hung up.

¤ And oooh boy, that baby hasn’t been born yet and already its been spoiled rotten.

¤ A nursery fit for royalty.

¤ Best toys

¤ And not to mention appointments 10 times a week

¤ Only the finest of doctors for his baby

¤ When you’re close to the due date he finds a way to work from home

¤ He convinces you to get a C-Section so that it doesn’t pain you as much

¤ Jumin Han? More like Daddy Han

¤ He won’t stop posting pictures of the baby and Elizabeth 3rd on the messenger


Jaehee 

¤ It happened while you two were on a break. 

¤ An open break

¤ And you were… well… drunk

¤ Pretty much a one night stand with no protection

¤ Eventually you an Jaehee did get back together like a week later

¤ And a week after that you weren’t feeling so hot

     × nausea, hungry, moody

¤ Felt like your period but the blood was missing

¤ Eventually Jaehee took you to your doctor.

¤ Your doctor ran the same test 5 times

¤ Finally they simply asked you if “You had been sexually active with a male”

¤ To which you reply no

¤ And a few seconds later Maybe/Yes

¤ Jaehee just like ??? What

¤ And then the news

     × “MC you’re pregnant”

¤ They leave you two alone to talk because he knows something happened

¤ There was silence for a few minutes

¤ And then you could hear Jaehee choke back a sob

     × “MC I thought you would have been different… I thought this would have been different”

¤ You begin to explain to her how it all happened and when

¤ It makes it better but not completely okay

¤ It takes a few months for her to completely over it 

¤ Once it gets to that point, shes ecstatic over the baby

¤ She always seems to have just what you need 

    × “Jaehee do you mind getting me a-”

    × She passes you a pickle covered in Nutela

    × “Thank you”

¤ When you go into labour she gets a call at work.

¤ Actually she gets 6 missed calls from an unknown number before deciding to pick up.

    × “Excuse me, am I speaking with Ms. Jaehee Kang?

    × “This is she”

    × “I am calling about Mc, she seems to have gone into labour early and you are the number marked into her emergency contacts- hello?”

¤ She was at the hospital faster than the speed limit allowed.

¤ After, of course, informing her boss

¤ She knew just how make you comfortable and not get her hand squeezed near broken by the end

¤ Your really exausted so she’s actually the first to hold the baby.

¤ They’re small, and a tad underweight but otherwise healthy.


Seven-o-Seven

¤ The thing is, you two have gotten frisky even when Saeran was home

¤ And anytime, everywhere

     × “Why can’t those two shut up for just one night”

¤ So the reality was, you getting pregnant was expected

¤ Except it never happened

¤ Because you, my dear, where as infertile as a mule

¤ Pregnancy was a difficult thing to achieve

¤ So babies didn’t seem like a possibility

¤ Until your boy Saeyoung came home wiTH TWO BABIES IN A BASKET

     × “Saeyoung is that what I think it is?”

     × “ If your thinking about babies, then yes”

     × “Idiot brother”

¤ So your a mom now

¤ He had gone ahead and bought the babies toys, and bottles, and food, and milk and everything necessary for a baby

¤ He always was the one to get up when one of them began to cry at night

¤ Even if you insisted that you had it

     × “Saeyoung I’ve got it”

     × “Go back to sleep, I’m already ready”

     × “But Saeyoung-”

     × “No cuts, no buts, no coconuts”

¤ He would always post pictures of the three/four/five of you together in the chat

     × Saeyoung: And in this picture we see my 4 favourite people

     × Zen: I still can’t believe you adopted 2 babies out of the blue like that

¤ Apparently your infertility wasn’t so infertile afterall

¤ Oops your pregnant

¤ When he finds out he’s excited 

¤ Cause like

¤ Three babies

¤ He lets you do even less than before 

¤ Once your big enough he won’t even let you carry around the babies

¤ You would use the cravings as a way to get him out of the house and carry the babies.

¤ He builds like 15 robots to play with the babies

¤ He buys like another ton of toys

¤ Not to mention he gets to prepare the nursery with time this time

     × Cat themed by the way

¤ When the third baby comes, you leave the other two with a panic-y Saeran 

¤ Speed limits are no limits

¤ After the baby is born, Saeyoung gets Saeran and the two babies

¤ Takes a family photo and posts it on the chat along with a “lololol”

  ÷ BONUS ÷

          × 707 has joined the chat

          × 707: Lololol look at my 5 favourite people

        × Attached is a photo of Saeran MC and three babies

          × Yoosung: Did you adopt again?! 

          × Yoosung’s Questionmark emoji is attached 

          × 707: Lolol nope

          × 707: This one was all me and MC

Saeran

¤ You could hardly call that sex

    × It was more like “lets see how fast we can fuck before Saeyoung gets back”

¤ You found out like a month later at a physical.

     × “Congratulations MC you’re pregnant”

¤ As soon as your out, cue panic.

¤ A baby??? A baby was not part of the plan

¤ You took the bus home because you needed to think this over, without the Choi twins knowing just yet

¤ An hour later your home

¤ Surprise: Saeran isn’t, and Saeyoung is kinda just looking at you weirdly.

¤ Saeyoung finally tells you what happened

¤ Those fuckers hacked into your medical files as soon as your appointment was over to make sure everything was “Just Fine”

¤ It wasn't 

¤ Pregnancy hormones started kicking in, and there were tears

¤ Saeran just happened to walk in at that moment after calming his own nerves

¤ There was more panic because he didn’t know how to comfort you.

¤ Eventually he pulls you aside into your room, hands you a tissue and waits for you to calm down.

¤ When that happens (like an hour later) he kinda just sighs and tries to work things out

     × “I know we didn’t plan this, but I know you’ll make a great mother, I’ll try to be a good dad”

¤ Comforting but he’s High-Key scared.

¤ When it’s all sort out he’s actually really cute 

× Low key loves to talk to your belly

     × Complains but always does what you ask him to do 

          € He would say “Mc It’s 3:47 in the morning where am I going to find that?” While he’s getting dressed.

     × Protective over you and the bump.

¤ When Due date comes he can’t stay in the room with you. Your screams almost give him a panic attack, so Saeyoung goes in his place while he stays a good 2 hallways away.

¤ When the baby is there, and he kinda just stares at it.

     ×"Its so tiny and chubby”

¤ But he immediately falls in love with them.

¤ He’s scared of carrying them

     × “What if I drop them?”

     × “You won’t”

¤ Eventually he does, while sitting next to you in the bed.

¤ Saeyoung ends up snapping a selfie and BOOM family photo


V

¤ Blind sex was great

¤ For all you kinky bastards its like a perpetual blindfold

¤ But blindness has its disadvantages

¤ For example: if your blind, you don’t notice when the condom’s broken

¤ Just so happens that’s what happened to our dear V

¤ And that became evident a week before his surgery

¤ On the pregnancy test 

¤ So instead of telling him, you decided to wear a shirt that would read out “Your going to be a father”

¤ Because whats better than the first thing you see after being blind for who knows how long being that your going to be a father 

¤ But that quickly backfires once he’s told that he can’t take off the bandages for three days

¤ And he takes them off at two

¤ And you don’t have the god damn shirt on

¤ And so the water works begin

¤ And so does the confusion and panic

     × “MC why are you crying? Aren’t you happy?”

     × All that be heard is incoherent crying

¤ And once your calm…enough… you explain

     × “It was supposed to be a surprise, the first thing you saw was supposed to be the shirt”

     × “What shirt?”

     × “The one telling you you were gonna be a dad”

¤ And boom the surprise was out.

¤ And holy fuck he was crying

¤ And not out of sadness but out of happiness 

¤ Cause not only did he get to see, he also got the best news of his life

¤ Next thing you know your pulled into a hug

     × “MC thank you, I love you! Thank you so much”

¤ He was supportive as hell

¤ Boy got you as many things as he could

¤ But due to his recent achievement of sight, he couldn’t get you it all

¤ There were certain things, like driving or walking in the night, that just weren’t safe enough for your liking

¤ So you’d ignore your craving until morning

¤ But he always made up for the time needed to get them by going to EVERY SINGLE APPOINTMENT YOU HAD

¤ Still it was helpful to you to have him there

¤ He takes so many pictures of you like there’s no tomorrow.

¤ You and the belly

¤ Everywhere

¤ You both agree a planed C-Section is the best choice, less pain, and less shock and panic than if your water broke

¤ When the day came, you both drove there

¤ He couldn’t stop talking about the unborn yet baby

¤ Once you where brought into the room

     × “Sir, I’m sorry you can’t take that camera into the opertating room”

¤ Someone isn’t getting invited to the next RFA party

¤ The baby was slightly underweight but beautiful none the less.

So I’m putting together this “BEST OF” list for @unforth-ninawaters and because we recently lost “tell me about the big bang” and because I’m procrastinating.

This list makes up, what I think to be, the best Stormpilot fics out there. I know I’m forgetting some and missing some amazing people, so feel free to reblog and add your own recs. Keep the love going!

This post was made on 5/20/17. Only has completed works. Now, in no particular order:

Car Radio

This was requested by @blue-greenstylinson a while back. I’m so sorry it’s taken so long to get out! (You’re a sweetheart for being so patient with me, I swear hope I’ll never let an ask sit this long again. You’re the best!) -Emma

Also I couldn’t decide on what type of drug Tyler would be so I made him like two types


The music at the party made it near impossible for anything to be heard in the house. This didn’t bother Tyler at all. In fact, it pumped him up even more. This was the first party he had been to in California that Mark wasn’t hosting, and he had been really looking forward to this. Unlike at Mark’s parties, Tyler didn’t have to worry about something being posted on Mark’s channel. Tyler didn’t mind being on Mark’s channel, but he always found himself holding back on drinking when he knew the party would be posted about. He didn’t want to set a bad example for the fans.

This party was different though. His friend Luca was hosting it, and unbeknownst to Tyler, Luca had quite a wild side.  It wasn’t long before Tyler was handed a drink, and over the course of the night he had downed enough drinks to put a college frat boy to shame. 

After doing some shots with Luca and some of his friends, Luca made a suggestion that blew everybody’s mind. 

“Hey, hey, guys. Karaoke?” 

Tyler gasped. “Luuuucass you'rea geniuss that sounds uh-mazingg!”

Luca laughed. “Scheid, I think you’ve had a little too much to drink. I think you’re good for now.”

Tyler pouted and followed Luca to a little makeshift stage where the karaoke machine was placed, slightly stumbling  along the way. Luca cut off the music, causing everyone to stop and groan.

“Hey bro! Turn the mussic back on that was my jam,” a voice yelled.

“Calm down, calm down. I was thinking it would be fun to do karaoke. Any takers for the first song?” Luca announced.

“I’ll go first Lu,” Tyler offered, stepping onto the stage. 

“You sure Ty? What song?”

Tyler nodded. “Surprise me. And I just want to say Luke,” Tyler burst into laughter. “Luke, I am your father.” More laughter. Luca rolled his eyes and passed Tyler the mic. Not too long after, Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” filled the room. 

Tyler able to get through the “Ice ice baby” parts, but he made incoherent noises during the rap parts. He stupidly danced during it, earning cheers from the crowd. This encouraged him to dance more. In the middle of a move that looked like a hybrid of the tranky doo and a mime riding a motorcycle, Tyler got too close to the edge of the stage and tripped off of it. Luckily for him, he landed on his feet, but crashed into the guys standing by the stage. Luca quickly rushed over to him. 

“Woah there Tyler, I think you should go. Gimme your phone, lemme call somebody for you.” 

“Ooooh, Ethshould come he would love this and he would have so much fun. Lucky you are so smart today.” Tyler continued gush about Ethan to Luca, who quickly grew annoyed by it. 

“Well, I texted the Ethan guy in your phone, who I’m assuming is “Eth”. He should be here any minute now.”

Tyler gasped again. “Ethan’s coming here?! Oh god I hope he’ll wanna hang with me, he’s reeeally cool and I’m not, and he just-” Tyler suddenly sniffled and his eyes slightly began to water. “Lila he means a lot and I really hope he shows.”

Almost as if on cue, Luca spotted some tiny kid with bright blue hair looked around, confused. 

“Tyler, is that your friend?”

Tyler turned around and barreled towards his friend. 

“Ethy you made it! I missed youu!” Tyler exclaimed, tackling Ethan in a hug. Ethan had to pry Tyler off of him.

“Well of course I’d come, wait are you crying? What’s wrong?” Ethan observed. 

“I’m not crying there was just this ummmm, this craazy curse that makes a water fall on my face.” Tyler explained, thinking this is perfect, he’ll never know.

“Uh, huh. Now who’s Luca? I want to thank him for getting me.” Ethan asked, looked around again.

“I’m Luca. Thanks for coming for him. I know he appreciates it. He would not be able to drive like this. Here’s his phone. ” Luca stepped forward and held out Tyler’s phone.

“Thanks man, I appreciate it. Tyler are you ready to head home?” Ethan directed his attention back to Tyler. 

“Ooooh, youre taking me home? I cant waait. Bye Luccyyy.”

Ethan struggled to get Tyler in the car. Once on the way home, Tyler became suddenly interested in everything in the car. 

“Eeeeth, can we do karaokaaay?” Tyler begged, opening and closing the air conditioning vent.

“Karaoke? I guess.” Ethan answered, turning on the radio. Tyler cheered. The song on was “Chandelier”. Tyler began screeching along with the song and Ethan couldn’t help but to laugh and sing along. The rest of the ride home went like this. 

As they neared their house, “All of Me” began to play. Tyler belted along, messing up the lyrics, and then completely improvised the chorus. 

“ ’Cause ooooliveee meat  rubs ooooliveee juice, blue blue blue blue hair all your hair is blue blue blue. Give your soull to me, give my soull to you. I like your bluee face ohhhhhh ohhh.”

Tyler finished his version of the chorus as they pulled into their driveway. His version caught Ethan off guard, and he blamed it for Tyler being drunk. That didn’t stop his face from flushing.  

“Ethan did youu like my song for you, ohmygod you are so red are you sunburnt? I’ll fight the sun for you.” Tyler became concerned while he examined Ethan’s blush.

“No, no, no. I’m fine. Let’s get you to bed, shall we?” He avoided the subject of his flushed face and helped Tyler out of the car.

“Okay! Bye-bye Mr. Radio!”

niallspringsteen  asked:

maybe things you said after the end for lilo, or things you said with miles between us for nouis? lOVE U

things you said with miles between us for nouis

The first text Louis gets from Niall in two months is a selfie of him looking sunburnt all to hell, with a generous helping of stubble on his face and the stiff hair he gets from saltwater. He looks at it for fifteen straight minutes, memorizing the blue of his eyes, the cut of his bare collarbones, the dark roots peeking out more than they’ve any right to.

Then he shoots off, looks great lad ! and throws his phone to the side.

He meant to sleep in this morning, snatch a few couple of precious hours of sleep before he goes over to Bria’s to get the little lad. But instead he’s up at 8 am, hating himself and thinking about Niall.

Not hating himself because he’s thinking about Niall. He thinks about Niall often. In a friendly sort of way, in that way where you think about your mates because they’re your mates and you like thinking about them.

He thinks.

It makes sense, in a way, Niall’s fucked off somewhere and not told anyone where he’s gone. Or at least he’s not told Louis. He said he’d do that, he’d lose himself out in some small corner of the world where no one’s going to take his picture.

I’ll come looking for you, Louis had promised. He hasn’t even made it out of LA yet.

He doesn’t need to follow Niall around anymore, really. He’s traveled the damn planet with Niall three times over, and he’s got to settle down now. He’s got to grow some roots for a while, tend to his family. Become a homebody for the first time in his life. Even if that does sound more exhausting than touring.

He doesn’t expect his phone to start ringing, but it does.

reasons why seungkwan is a sweetheart
  • even if he’s part of the maknae line, you can see how much 17 members rely on him, always checking his reactions, and expect him to lead everything (and are usually lost if he’s not there)
  • if no one is saying anything during an interview, even if he’s not the MC he either leads the members or starts talking even if it’s nonsense to save the situation
  • he always tries his best to give good advices, and more than anything: always encourage people a lot
  • he’s able to get along with everyone, even new staff really quickly
  • he likes to make a lot of jokes, but he’s always careful of people’s reaction: if it looks like he said/did something that would make other unconfortable or hurt them he apologizes right away and try to make them feel better by saying nice things about them or gives them a hug
  • he just gives tons of hug to people who are pouting even a bit, or just tons of hugs in general
  • he’s just extremely polite and respectful: like on One Fine Day, when they were given something to eat after picking bossam in Cheongsando, he was the first one to go to other workers to feed them
  • after Mingyu used one the bossam to stop a fire, he apologized right away with a 90° bow to workers who gave them bossam
  • he’s careful of everyone like he tries to make everyone shine, and he keeps telling fun stories about members who don’t talk much
  • he protects his members of any situation where they could be embarrassed: when people ask Jihoon’s height, when Jeonghan accidently spat on the floor (and he moved quickly to hide it with his foot), or when Hoshi was asked if he changed the choregraphy this week too but he didn’t so Seungkwan immediately explained how Hoshi had so much work that it was impossible for him to do so
  • he’s careful of other members likes and dislikes, like when a member suggested to cook curry in a cooking program, he immediately said « no we have a member who doesn’t like curry » before Woozi even said that he disliked it
  • he’s extremely observant and can tell when seungcheol is lying, when woozi is embarassed and acting like he’s not, or really pretty much anything about the members
  • he’s interrested in foreign members’ culture a lot, like  he kept saying to Minghao how he wanted to try chinese food, until Minghao had enough and took him and Jun  to a chinese restaurant
  • and he’s always talking in english, and even try to communicate with foreign fans by using it
  • he didn’t show much of his japanese yet, but it seems pretty good since he’s one the of member who says the longest sentences in japanese
  • he’s very affectionate with everyone really and even more to fans: he greets them with the biggest smile on his face, hands waving really high in the sky, and he  just looks so happy and excited
  • when he leaves he either greets the fans the same way, or looks really extremely sadden to leave
  • he always tries his hardest to communicate with fans, no matter if they are foreigners or not, he has no problem trying to use their language, and start asking them questions about where they are from even if the situation doesn’t really permit them to talk
  • so whenever he’s in a situation where he can’t really talk (like when he was doing Sukira for exemple) he writes on a notebook things he wants to ask to fans (« are you excited for the comeback? », or after asking to a foreigner where she’s from: « NY? » to make sure), saying thank you to fans « thank you for congratulating me for my graduation♡  », talking about his feelings « i’m going to sing later, i’m so nervous », « i missed you »
  • he’s also one of the member who communicate the most withs fans on SNS
  • because of Pledis’ rules he sometimes has to refuse things like taking pictures, or giving people his signature, and he was said to look extremely sorry and apparently kept apologizing everytime it happened
  • he always show the same respect to sunbae groups, no matter if they are a popular or an unpopular group, he’s admiring all of them and keeps talking about how much he liked one of their song or enjoyed things they did in the past, etc
  • he’s like some kind of Jeju ambassador: never letting anymore makes fun of it, even if playing along with other people’s jokes would make it easier for him to fit
  • he has his own insecurities like his weight or his dancing skills (he used to be considered one of the worst dancer) and how he’s the one being scold the most during recording usually, but he never blames anyone joking about his weight, or people scolding him during dance practice, or  during recording. He just keeps working hard to diet, and improve in any area he’s not confident in
  • he makes sure the members don’t loose confidence in themselves, like when seokmin had to show a special talent on a show but reactions weren’t so good, he took his hand even if he was really far away from him to show support
  • he showers members with praises about anything related to their insecurities: like randomly talking about how happy he is that seungcheol is the leader, how much he likes mingyu’s skin color, or how fun joshua is and actually not a boring person at all…
  • when Jeonghan joined the group and was awkward with everyone, Seungkwan was the first one who tried getting close to him, by doing a lot of silly jokes, and it was never said but it looks like it took some time for Minghao to become close to the members, and Seungkwan also seems like one of the first who started looking out for him
  • he loves babies and kids so much and if seungkwan is usually the most professional of the group in any given situation, kids are an exception for him: he just stops talking about what he was supposed to talk about and keeps playing with the kid and talk no-stop about how cute he/she is, or even almost forget about the « no photo of people without their consent » rule, because they are so cute to him
  • he knows every members’ birthday
  • seungkwan always thought during his predebut days that he would be the least popular, and his biggest fear has always been not getting any attention at all, not being noticed
  • he was said to be a soft-heart boy since predebut: he cried more than Chan when his father came, also cried the hardest when samuel’s mother read a letter written for seventeen’s members, was the only one who cried when he read his letter for his mother on parent’s day, cried when doing a video message to his mother on 17project and couldn’t stop crying after seeing her, cried at the boys wish concert, cried when seventeen won their first rookie award, and got extremely emotional on his last day at Sukira with Ryeowook and the rest of the S-line, and on the One Fine Day when the 3 leaders read their letters
  • he also cares a lot about member’s feelings, like he was afraid for seokmin’s feelings when no judge talked about his singing in 17project (while seungkwan was praised), or when vernon said he felt sorry to seventeen about SMTM, he said later in an interview « He was talking about how he was sorry. What’s there to be sorry about~ right? » ©
  • he loves his mom so much and keeps talking about her no matter what; he even almost gave up on being an idol because he didn’t want to leave his mom in jeju
  • he gets anxious really easily, and sometimes he’s tired but since he’s the moodmaker and has pride on this title, he doesn’t want to let other people seeing his tired-side and try to gives energy to people as much as he can no matter what
  • i have so many things to say but i’ll stop there, so just remember that seungkwan is a sweetheart and that he deserves all the love

anonymous asked:

Hey there! I was wondering (since you seem well-versed in h/c sam fics) if you could recommend some good fics? Pretty much anything Sam-centric, lol. I trust your judgment.

This is the part where I wish I kept better records. I live and breathe hurt!Sam, but I don’t always save the fics I read. 

I absolutely stand behind all my fic recs, though, which you can find on my blog here! They’re pretty much always hurt!Sam (with some Sam appreciation mixed in there).

There are tons of places to find great hurt/comfort stuff, though, and it would be silly of me not to direct you to these places first, though you may already be following them.

Places to go:

Some author recs:

Choosing fics is hard, because a lot of authors have tons of great stuff and I can’t choose just one to rec. I can point you in the direction of talented authors, though! I can guarantee that their writing is going to be Sam appreciative and Sam centric. 

Note: Most of these authors post plenty of fics, ficlets, and episode tags to their Tumblrs that don’t get posted to AO3. Most of them post a mix of gen stuff and pairing stuff. I’m also definitely forgetting some great authors!

  • @themegalosaurus | (ao3) - Absolutely beautiful Sam-centric writing with a generous dose of brothers feels! (Make sure to check out her fantastic episode tags on Tumblr, too!) Be aware that some fic is Wincest or J2 RPF, with other pairings showing up occasionally.
  • @ameliacareful | (ao3) - Lovely hurt!Sam stuff and great portrayals of the characters.
  • @agelade | (ao3) - Stunning Sam-centric stuff. Generous hurt, beautiful writing, amazing focus on Sam.
  • @waterbird13 | (ao3) - Posts mostly on Tumblr and contributes so much lovely fic that is basically centered around Sam getting love and being happy.
  • @quickreaver | (ao3) - Lots of beautiful hurt!Sam fics, and quickreaver is also an insanely talented artist (if you’re looking for some visual hurt!Sam)! Can be slightly darker stuff. Some Winces and other pairings.
  • stillwaters01 on AO3 - Just in case you want very brothers-focused sweet agony and heartbreak with your H/C.
  • Let’s be real. Basically all the writers over at ohSam, too.

So much H/C you will die (in the best way).

No, really. I always indulge in thoughts of unrestrained H/C but I never seem to be able to write it. If relentless hurt (and delicious comfort) are your thing, these writers may make your day.

  • Marianna Morgan on FF.Net - Suuuuuper lovely and indulgent hurt!Sam and just really idealized happy brothers fic. If caring and protective!Dean is your thing, these are lovely!
  • skag trendy on FF.Net - I was trying to remember names from when I was prowling Fanfiction.Net, and I remember that this writer has just tons of hurt!Sam. You know those fics where the hurt doesn’t let up and it’s just this amazingly shameless pain-fest? Yes.
  • Alex L. Kerr on FF.Net - of the famed Trialculosis Sam fic, but there’s a lot to enjoy.

Mostly pairing stuff (I’ll list which ones!)

These writers are Sam fans who write some great stuff. Some of it is gen, some of it is explicit. If you prefer gen-fic, be aware. If you sometimes love your hurt with more intimate comfort, check these awesome people out!

  • @posingasme | (ao3)- Mostly Sastiel, mostly non-explicit. Beautiful and breathtaking and heartbreaking AUs that often have generous helpings of hurt!Sam and badass!Sam.
  • @rosworms | (ao3)- Sam/Benny and Sastiel and also Wincest + others. Sometimes explicit. Often heavy on the comfort. <3 Always lovely. Mostly posted on Tumblr but some can be found on the Archive, too!
  • @kansaskissedlips (no ao3) - Wincest and Sastiel and basically everything you could ever imagine + more. I’ll bet you didn’t know you needed hurt!Soulless!Sam. But you do. Often quite explicit fics and ficlets with some gen thrown in! 

And now onto the specific fics! My fic recs are below, as well as a list (with links) of fics people have recced to me! Cut for length, and also because I plan to add more as I think of them.

Feel free to submit me your recs (or self recs!), and I’ll credit you and add them to the list below!

absolute-cookie  asked:

Just found your blog through your P&P post and I really enjoyed it! I wanted to ask you about another P&P issue that has been bothering me lately: some people interpret Lizzy's opinion change towards Darcy happening due to her seeing Pemberley and liking it, i.e. she marries him because she realised what she would be missing if she didn't accept him. I feel it is quite a cynical interpretation and also incongruous with her character. What do you think? Would love to read your thoughts on it :)

“My dearest sister, now be serious. I want to talk very seriously. Let me know every thing that I am to know, without delay. Will you tell me how long you have loved him?”

“It has been coming on so gradually, that I hardly know when it began. But I believe I must date it from my first seeing his beautiful grounds at Pemberley.”

Another entreaty that she would be serious, however, produced the desired effect; and she soon satisfied Jane by her solemn assurances of attachment. When convinced on that article, Miss Bennet had nothing further to wish.

Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 59

 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that those who read a book about the perils of superficial judgment of character, all too often find themselves behaving in a similar manner. There is more than one such person who gamely alleges that Elizabeth Bennet married Darcy because of his grand estate. Like Jane, I would entreat those critics to be serious, for a true reading of the text would put the mercenary motive to rest, even if there is a kernel of truth in Elizabeth’s facetious reply to her sister.

Elizabeth’s feelings for Darcy did indeed first develop upon her visit to Pemberley, and all of them have to do with Pemberley as a representation of Darcy’s character, rather than a representation of his wealth.

It was a large, handsome stone building, standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills; and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were neither formal nor falsely adorned. Elizabeth was delighted. She had never seen a place for which nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste. They were all of them warm in their admiration; and at that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be something!

Elizabeth has witnessed firsthand Darcy liking to have his own way, even when his inclinations run roughshod over good manners and the feelings of his friend Bingley. It is telling that he is able to cede control to nature where it is merited. Darcy is not the tyrant Elizabeth once thought him to be on his own grounds, where he has the most liberty to be one.

Elizabeth also has cause for concern about Darcy’s fixation on social standing. In fact, this prevents her from going further along the path of regret at refusing him, when she thinks he will come between her and the tradesman branch of her family:

“And of this place,” thought she, “I might have been mistress! With these rooms I might now have been familiarly acquainted! Instead of viewing them as a stranger, I might have rejoiced in them as my own, and welcomed to them as visitors my uncle and aunt. But no,”—recollecting herself—“that could never be; my uncle and aunt would have been lost to me; I should not have been allowed to invite them.”

Imagine her surprise when Darcy not only greets her aunt and uncle genially, but socializes with them and invites them all to dinner. It is a sharp contrast to the man who thought himself above his company when they first met:

That he was surprised by the connection was evident; he sustained it, however, with fortitude, and so far from going away, turned back with them, and entered into conversation with Mr. Gardiner. Elizabeth could not but be pleased, could not but triumph. It was consoling that he should know she had some relations for whom there was no need to blush. She listened most attentively to all that passed between them, and gloried in every expression, every sentence of her uncle, which marked his intelligence, his taste, or his good manners.

The conversation soon turned upon fishing; and she heard Mr. Darcy invite him, with the greatest civility, to fish there as often as he chose while he continued in the neighbourhood, offering at the same time to supply him with fishing tackle, and pointing out those parts of the stream where there was usually most sport. Mrs. Gardiner, who was walking arm-in-arm with Elizabeth, gave her a look expressive of wonder. Elizabeth said nothing, but it gratified her exceedingly; the compliment must be all for herself. Her astonishment, however, was extreme, and continually was she repeating, “Why is he so altered? From what can it proceed? It cannot be for me—it cannot be for my sake that his manners are thus softened. My reproofs at Hunsford could not work such a change as this. It is impossible that he should still love me.”

 Lastly, even though Elizabeth has come to realize that Wickham gave her a false report  of Darcy denying him a livelihood, the suspicion is still in the air that Darcy might not treat those beneath him well. After all, this was his reply to Elizabeth’s rejection of him:

“Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your connections?—to congratulate myself on the hope of relations, whose condition in life is so decidedly beneath my own?”

Yet far from being an overbearing master, Darcy is uncommonly civil to his servants. Mrs. Reynolds, the housekeeper, goes above and beyond the call of duty to mention his virtues to Mrs. Gardiner:

“I say no more than the truth, and everybody will say that knows him,” replied the other. Elizabeth thought this was going pretty far; and she listened with increasing astonishment as the housekeeper added, “I have never known a cross word from him in my life, and I have known him ever since he was four years old.”

This was praise, of all others most extraordinary, most opposite to her ideas. That he was not a good-tempered man had been her firmest opinion.

“If I were to go through the world, I could not meet with a better. But I have always observed, that they who are good-natured when children, are good-natured when they grow up; and he was always the sweetest-tempered, most generous-hearted boy in the world.”

Elizabeth listened, wondered, doubted, and was impatient for more.

“He is the best landlord, and the best master,” said she, “that ever lived; not like the wild young men nowadays, who think of nothing but themselves. There is not one of his tenants or servants but will give him a good name. Some people call him proud; but I am sure I never saw anything of it. To my fancy, it is only because he does not rattle away like other young men.”

 The sentences in bold are direct contrasts to Darcy’s insulting and unexpected proposal at Hunsford, where she saw the very worst of his pride and temper:

Elizabeth’s astonishment was beyond expression. She stared, coloured, doubted, and was silent. This he considered sufficient encouragement; and the avowal of all that he felt, and had long felt for her, immediately followed. He spoke well; but there were feelings besides those of the heart to be detailed; and he was not more eloquent on the subject of tenderness than of pride. His sense of her inferiority—of its being a degradation—of the family obstacles which had always opposed to inclination, were dwelt on with a warmth which seemed due to the consequence he was wounding, but was very unlikely to recommend his suit.

Elizabeth then learns that Darcy not only has altered his manner, but that in his own house and in familiar company, his cold exterior dissolves away. He is also an attentive brother:

On reaching the spacious lobby above they were shown into a very pretty sitting-room, lately fitted up with greater elegance and lightness than the apartments below; and were informed that it was but just done to give pleasure to Miss Darcy, who had taken a liking to the room when last at Pemberley.

“He is certainly a good brother,” said Elizabeth, as she walked towards one of the windows.

Mrs. Reynolds anticipated Miss Darcy’s delight, when she should enter the room. “And this is always the way with him,” she added. “Whatever can give his sister any pleasure is sure to be done in a moment. There is nothing he would not do for her.”

 To someone with a close relationship to her sister Jane, this means a lot.

 And finally, the willingness Darcy demonstrates to change his ways and make amends clinches Elizabeth’s growing regard for him.

“But above all, above respect and esteem, there was a motive within her of goodwill which could not be overlooked. It was gratitude; gratitude, not merely for having once loved her, but for loving her still well enough to forgive all the petulance and acrimony of her manner in rejecting him, and all the unjust accusations accompanying her rejection. He who, she had been persuaded, would avoid her as his greatest enemy, seemed, on this accidental meeting, most eager to preserve the acquaintance, and without any indelicate display of regard, or any peculiarity of manner, where their two selves only were concerned, was soliciting the good opinion of her friends, and bent on making her known to his sister. Such a change in a man of so much pride exciting not only astonishment but gratitude—for to love, ardent love, it must be attributed; and as such its impression on her was of a sort to be encouraged, as by no means unpleasing, though it could not be exactly defined.”

Pemberley is not merely an estate in Pride and Prejudice; it is a personification of Darcy himself. By visiting Pemberley and the nearby town of Lambton and speaking with their residents, Elizabeth and her family begin to understand Darcy in a way that was impossible before. No one is measuring the drapes and counting the cost of Darcy’s chimney pieces; they are taking the measure of the man through the environment he is responsible for and the people who happily live there.

you're missing A Lot about alison's development if you think she suddenly went good and didn't apologize to anyone. lowkey watch season 5 again

no disrespect to you at all, i just think alison is a character that i think gets too much credit and attention. and it’s not because i don’t like the bad turned good arch, hence why i love mona (also because mona had some darn good reasons for being evil) but alison really didn’t. her parents were maybe the worst, yes, but so are spencer’s, so is hannas dad, and they didn’t do things half as bad…
ok yes i know she technically apologized but she didn’t show anything for it. can we just go over the things she did once she returned and “apologized”… she slapped mona across the face, created the weird team of random people nobody cares about to threaten mona/ replace the liars, was a b-tch to caleb and therefore hanna (AGAIN), she kind of sort of led emily on but it was confusing bc i guess it was mayb romantic? idk though bc she still never tells emily what she wants and still expects emily to follow her around like a puppy (again to clarify, in not a big fan of paige but she makes some good points), oh yeah and then she was confusing and lying all the time about where tf she was while she was missing???? like do we even know where she was????, but yes you’re right *she did tell emily that “it wasn’t just for practice” (and then never clarified with emily if she wants to date…), she did apologize to a ton of people for bullying them… for popularity points, oh and yes there was that very touching moment in jail when ali says that she “honestly thought she was helping” them by “telling you what to wear, who to like” but she never once brings up the fact that she literally helped hanna develop bulimia. never in this entire show. also when she’s saying this little speech to hanna, idc if it’s touching, she never actually says sorry. she just says that she thought she was helping. excuse me but that’s an excuse if i’ve ever heard one. and then ali asks if they can start over. hence why i said, she magically becomes good*


sorry i didn’t expect this to get very long at all but the thing is ali has done more things than even i remembered and i’m sorry if this offends you, it’s not meant to. neither was my original post. i don’t have a problem if you shop emison or if alison is you’re favorite character- i really don’t, but you have to at least acknowledge that alison put all of the girls through hell and they should have been going to therapy long before a even existed with such a horrible best friend.

*also idk if this is necessary to add, i really hope it isn’t- but i love love love sasha, i think she is so precious and too good for this world.

*oh sorry i’m editing this later but i completely forgot that mona actually slapped alison first (i literally forgot that that happened so i’m sorry)
On HalluciGen, Inc. (and why I wish Bethesda had done more with it)

[Warning: Spoilers for HalluciGen, Inc. and Vault 108 in FO3.]

This is something that has been bothering me for a while now, and I feel that I’m not being entirely unreasonable here.

When I first heard about HalluciGen in Fallout 4, I got excited. I found two notes. One was a flyer titled “Help Wanted!”, which talked about HalluciGen, Inc. looking for volunteers to help test “non-lethal police and military technology”. Knowing Fallout’s affinity for wacky science gone wrong, I was intrigued. 

Pretty much right next to the flyer was a dead Gunner. Now I don’t remember if the note was on the Gunner’s corpse or if it way lying next to him, but it was most likely his. It was talking about a mission objective to retrieve military technology from HalluciGen, Inc. for a well-paying customer, and mentioned something called “InvisiWave” and “Irradicator” weapons.

So now I knew that there was a location that had a bunch  of interesting events going on, possibly even new or unique weapons, marked right on my map.  

Now even if you don’t find any of these notes you can still get a quest from Fred Allan, the local drug dealer in the Rexford Hotel in Goodneighbor. If you ask him for work he will tell you that he heard about some chemical that was stored in HalluciGen and asks you to get one canister of that chemical so he can examine it.

So Bethesda gave us three different instances to build up HalluciGen, Inc. and for me it worked. I wanted to go there and see what the fuss is about. (Besides, how can you not investigate a place called HalluciGen, Inc.? That name is just asking for trouble.)

Once you get there, the front of the building is littered with dead Gunners. Again, very ominous. 

And then I opened the door, and the inside looks like this:

Notice how the floor is covered in ominous green fog. If you have a companion with you, chances are they’ll cough a bunch and worry about breathing the stuff in.

Almost immediately you can hear the Gunners that are in the building. But…something is clearly wrong with them. They will laugh maniacally, talk to people that aren’t there, chant things like “kill kill kill” or “Bugs! Bugs bugs bugs!”

At this point it’s quite obvious that whatever this gas is that’s filling the building, it’s bad.

I thought “AWESOME! Maybe the gas will cause my character to Hallucinate as well? Maybe I need a gas mask?”

After all, it wouldn’t be the first time Bethesda screwed with our minds, right? Remember Vault 108 in Fallout 3? That too had an incident which released a psychoactive gas into the air, causing your character to hallucinate.

Like here, where your character sees their dad (who is missing) walk around the vault. Only there is…about three of him:

Even the terminal entries you could find would start messing with you:

It was creepy, and unnerving…and so, so cool.

So now I was in HalluciGen, Inc. literally standing ankle deep in a mysterious, clearly hallucinogenic green gas, without a gas mask or even a bandana or anything to protect my character from breathing it in. Surrounded by Gunners who had themselves gone completely nuts thanks to this gas.

And in my head I was thinking of all the exciting ways this could play out:

  •  What if some of the enemies started looking like your companions/ your late spouse/ NPCs from locations you have discovered (like Mayor McDonough or Ellie if you’ve been to Diamond City, or Daisy, K-LE-0 or Fahrenheit if you’ve been to Goodneighbor)?
  • What if some of the Gunners you find would turn out to be hallucinations, disappearing once you hit them?
  • What if suddenly you were attacked by giant molerats, or a tiny deathclaw, or other enemy creatures whose size or color would not make sense?
  • How about non-hostile hallucinations, like bugs crawling over the walls (hence the occasional Gunner chanting “Bugs! Bugs bugs bugs!”)? A room suddenly filled with idle housecats (Gunners saying “Here, kitty kitty kitty!”)?
  • Objects or noises that don’t belong (like a crib, or a lullaby playing in the background? An announcer talking directly to you, GLaDOS style?)
  • You gun suddenly shooting with Teddy bears instead of ammo? Melee weapons making squeaky noises, or screaming at you when you hit something?

My point is, there were a million ways Bethesda could have messed with our heads while trying to navigate the building and fix the gas leak. It could have been one of the more interesting side missions/locations in the game. they’ve done stuff like this before, after all.

And what did I get?

You shoot/hack your way through a bunch of crazed Gunners, kill a Gunner Commander at the end, pick up some nice loot plus a Gas Canister for Fred Allen and fuck off again.

That’s it.

They didn’t do anything with the gas leak that affects your character.

And the reason I’m so frustrated about that is because it’s such a big fat waste of potential. Because Bethesda has shown in the past that they are capable of doing this.

They didn’t even make it so you find a unique weapon there (in a facility that was specifically targeted by the Gunners because of suspected military tech). The InvisiWave turns out to have been a complete fraud to impress potential customers (achieved with two hacked Stealth Boys and a mirror) and the Irradicator is too large and too much of a crapshoot to be useful.

And it would have been fine if it turned out that the HalluciGen Gas was also some kind of fuck-up that didn’t work properly, but the whole building is filled with Gunners that prove otherwise.

[Note: Using the HalluciGen Gas canisters allows you to craft a special grenade that when used makes enemies attack each other; but there is only nine gas canisters you can find in total, and one of them has to be given to Fred Allen to complete his quest. So…not exactly a big win.]

Why isn’t my character influenced by the gas? They weren’t wearing any special headgear or even just a regular gas mask. How come they’re immune to it’s effects?

So not only is the lack of effects on the player character dissapointing, it’s immersion breaking (at least it was for me).

Bottom line: I was really let down by the events at HalluciGen, Inc. and I sincerely wish Bethesda had done more with the potential this quest could have had.

I just listened to Assassins for the first time after your recommendation and it's wonderful!! I adore Sondheim's work. What are your opinions on his other shows?

Omg, this is what I live for! Sharing my love of Sondheim with people is one of my main hobbies. 

My opinions on his other shows boil down to: Sondheim is one of the greatest artistic geniuses of the world and all his shows are remarkable. That being said, I’m not super familiar with Saturday Night, Road Show, or Do I Hear a Waltz? 

Out of Sondheim’s 19 major shows, I have seen 10 live. But there are some shows I know very intimately, even though I’ve never seen a production. Assassins is one of those shows - I know it backwards and forwards but it isn’t done very often and I missed the 2004 revival (my dad thought I was too young for it and I’m still not over it). 

So, because I’m clearly a bit of a Sondheim wonk, I will give everyone a primer on what shows to dive into. Here we go. 

If you already love musical theater, but haven’t delved into Sondheim yet, start with: 

  • Into the Woods
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Gypsy
  • Company

If you love classical music and opera, but haven’t fallen in love with musicals, start with: 

  • A Little Night Music
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Passion

If you’re a huge fan of musicals/film, but the whole “linear storytelling” thing is kind of boring you, check out:  

  • Company
  • Follies
  • Pacific Overtures
  • Assassins

If you make literally any kind of art, start with the greatest reflection on making art:  

  • Sunday in the Park with George

And here are the ones you can watch on film: 

  • West Side Story
  • A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum 
  • Company 
    • (PBS recorded the revival with Raul Esparza - find it on streaming) 
  • A Little Night Music
  • Pacific Overtures 
    • (the original was filmed and broadcast in Japan in the 70s, so it’s still floating around on YouTube) 
  • Sweeney Todd 
    • (there are lots of filmed live versions floating around and I think a DVD of the original production. Please don’t watch the Tim Burton movie if it’s your first time hearing the musical because a) Johnny Depp is a garbage person and b) Helena Bonham Carter was the worst possible choice for Mrs. Lovett in terms of vocal ability) 
  • Sunday in the Park with George 
    • (the original production was filmed) 
  • Into the Woods 
    • (again, don’t watch the movie - Emily Blunt is incredible but the whole show sort of falls apart because of the direction. The original 1988 production was filmed and is so fucking wonderful) 
  • Assassins (JK YOU CAN’T FIND IT ANYWHERE AND IT DRIVES ME CRAZY) 
  • Passion 
    • (the original was filmed and OH MY GOD THIS MUSICAL IS SO GREAT) 

And if you want to watch/listen to MY personal favorites: 

  • Assassins
  • Pacific Overtures
  • Passion
  • Sunday in the Park with George
  • Company 
  • Into the Woods

If you just want to listen to some baller songs from the shows listed here: 

  • West Side Story
    • Something’s Coming” 
    • “Maria” 
    • “Somewhere”
  • Gypsy
    • Everything’s Coming Up Roses” 
    • “Rose’s Turn” 
  • Company
    • “Sorry-Grateful” (UGH. the feelings) 
    • “Another Hundred People” 
    • “Marry Me A Little” (here’s a video of John Barrowman singing it, bc I think you guys will be into that) 
    • “Ladies Who Lunch” (a martini song - as in, pour yourself a martini and put on a shawl and parade around singing this very loudly)
    • “Being Alive” (one of the greatest songs ever written) 
  • Follies
  • A Little Night Music
    • “The Glamorous Life” 
    • “Every Day a Little Death” 
    • “Send in the Clowns” 
    • “The Miller’s Son” 
  • Pacific Overtures
    • “Poems” 
    • “Someone in a Tree” 
    • “Pretty Lady”
  • Sweeney Todd
    • “Poor Thing” 
    • “Pretty Women”
    • “Epiphany”
    • “Johanna (Quartet)”
    • “Not While I’m Around”
  • Merrily We Roll Along
  • Sunday in the Park with George
    • “Sunday in the Park with George” 
    • “Color and Light”
    • “Finishing the Hat” 
    • “Move On”
  • Into the Woods
    • “Giants in the Sky”
    • “Moment in the Woods” 
    • “Your Fault/Last Midnight” 
    • “No More” (which they left out of the film version like IDIOTS) 
    • “No One Is Alone” 
  • Assassins
    • All of it. 
    • Jk, jk, it does work best when you listen to the whole thing though
    • “Gun Song” 
    • “Unworthy of Your Love” 
    • “Another National Anthem/Family/Something Just Broke” 
  • Passion
    • “I Read” 
    • “Is This What You Call Love” 
    • “Loving You” 

But honestly, Assassins and Passion are about as perfect as art ever gets. Each of his shows have their strengths and stand-out moments, but I think I would not be the first person to say that Stephen Sondheim sometimes falters in second acts (and Sondheim faltering is still better than 99% of everyone else’s best). Both Assassins and Passion are 90 minute one act shows that are tight and thorough and expertly constructed. The first act of Sunday in the Park with George is like that as well. 

So go listen and explore and fall in love with this incredible composer! And then pls come talk to me about it. And also @personalinsanitymoment, who I am dragging into this discussion because we have different favorite musicals (because they’re all amazing!!), so I could use his input. 

I would apologize for this extremely long post, but I regret nothing.

anonymous asked:

How did you do your Cole cosplay? Especially the pants?!

Okay as promised I’ll try to do my best to explain how to make cosplay! Yay! But just as a warning: I will fail.

Let’s start from the top shall we? Hat.

As someone has already guess the leather part of the hat is made out of foam using foam to faux leather techniques. Here is a wonderful tutorial: x 
You can google if you need more tips on how to make it but it’s really simple. I’m not sure if I recommend using foam though since it can be hard to work with and I had a hard time getting a nice shape to it. I’m going to make another hat for the next convention using some kind of fabric instead just to see if it works better.

Top part is paper mache. The helmet. I used a balloon as a base when I made it. If you’re going to do the same just make sure to make the balloon slightly bigger than your head! It’s much easier to make a helmet fit when it’s too big it doesn’t work the other way around. Don’t make the same mistake I did! (I made it too small and had to redo it…) The details where made with paper and glue, every cosplayers favorite tool.

If anyone wonders I used Biltemas own hobbyspray to color it. A grey base color and the metallic color is called ‘Hammarlack’. It’s some good shit I tell you and it wasn’t even expensive! Anyway on to the next part! Shirt!

I’m not sure if I got much to say about the shirt. It’s linen, the patches are some other fabric that I just had to threw together to finish the cosplay (it’s not even the right color). But yeah, a lot of hand stitching stuff together. The wonderful patch on the shoulder is actual leather taken from a bag that I bought at a second hand store. If you aren’t already looking for material for your cosplay at second hand I recommend you start doing it. Anyway, I made very tight zig-zag seams on the patch to create the pattern. Not sure if it’s the best way to go but I had very little time to have second thoughts when I made it. Moving on! Pants!

So many has been asking me about pants and I have no idea how pants actually work but I’ll try my best to explain the pattern. You basically take a lot of pieces of fabric and put them together in a zigzag pattern. I made mine 7-8 cm in width, which is a bit too wide if you ask me. 7 cm is pretty good but further down on the pants you can make them smaller.

I tried to make a gif of how to put together the patches if the first picture didn’t help. Out means outside of fabric, the side you want to show. Friendly reminder: Start from the top of the pants and work your way down! This pattern is hard to make the other way so go from the hips down! It also came to my attention 2 days before the con that the pattern on his pants actually change direction by the knees.

I’m pretty sad I missed this detail so here’s a heads up if anyone want to make a more authentic cosplay. This is from an AMAZING imgur album my friend linked me. It can be found here for all your reference needs!

Last of all we got the slits? That’s the actual name for them right? Not sure if I got much to say to you here other that good luck I’m not sure how to make them right. I used D-rings for the straps. Straps made out of the same material as the pants. If you’ve managed to get here you’ll pretty soon have something that looks like this:

And you’re done!

Oh right! The middle with the belt and all I didn’t include because it’s basically broken my whole cosplay is falling apart. It’s also made out of foam and the fabric is stretchy velour. I would prefer to use crushed velvet but I never found it in a color I liked. Get some belts from second hand AND THEN YOU’RE DONE!

Don’t get a haircut for a couple of months and you’re ready to go! Good luck!

theladiesmormont  asked:

I looked through your Benjen Stark posts and didn't see anything so I hope this isn't a repeat, but do you have any ideas about why Benjen joined the Watch in the first place? If he's been in there a while, he was pretty high up the Stark line of succession at the time he joined. Just guilt over whatever role he had in the Lyanna/Rhaegar thing, maybe?

There’s no given reason why Benjen joined the Night’s Watch, and considering the fact that this left Ned as the only heir-producing member of House Stark, you’d think it’s not something a responsible member of the family would do. (And notably this is a major reason why House Stark is in such apparent trouble in ASOIAF — with the male heirs either dead or believed dead and the female heirs either believed dead or missing, there’s no cousins to take up the name; it’s also a reason why Robb wanted to legitimize Jon, and so on.)

Note GRRM has been rather cagey about Benjen’s reasons, when asked:

Q: [Why did Benjen join the Night’s Watch?]

A: Good question. One day you will get an answer. But it will not be today.

Asshai.com forum chat, July 2008

However, GRRM has said when Benjen joined the NW, and that’s probably very relevant:

Q: This one is probably trivial, but when did Benjen join the Watch? Right after the war against the Targaryens, more or less?

A: Pretty much, yes. Probably around about the time Ned returned from the south and Catelyn and Robb and Jon took up residence.

June 2000

When, specifically, did Benjen join the NW? Was it a couple of years after Ned returned, or immediately?

It was within a few months of Ned’s returning. The reason being that there always was a Stark at Winterfell, so he had to stay there until Ned returned. GRRM refused to say the reason why Benjen had to join the NW. […] Also, I didn’t mean to imply that Benjen “had to” join the NW. We don’t know because GRRM wouldn’t elaborate on the reasons for Benjen joining the NW.

convention report, May 2005

So, basically Benjen (about 14-15 at most, since he was the youngest of the siblings) was the Stark in Winterfell during Robert’s Rebellion. Some months after the end of the war, Ned returns to Winterfell with Lyanna’s body and baby Jon Snow… and Benjen leaves shortly thereafter for the Night’s Watch. Since he apparently didn’t “have to join” (although since GRRM didn’t say, we don’t know if he had to because of a crime or not, but at his age and with his class status he almost certainly didn’t), he must have volunteered. And he thought Jon was too young at 14 to want to join? He wasn’t that much older himself!

The timing and such is rather suspicious. And when you consider the facts that Benjen was close with Lyanna — that he knew of her skills with weapons:

Now two children danced across the godswood, hooting at one another as they dueled with broken branches. The girl was the older and taller of the two. Arya! Bran thought eagerly, as he watched her leap up onto a rock and cut at the boy. But that couldn’t be right. If the girl was Arya, the boy was Bran himself, and he had never worn his hair so long. And Arya never beat me playing swords, the way that girl is beating him. She slashed the boy across his thigh, so hard that his leg went out from under him and he fell into the pool and began to splash and shout.

—ADWD, Bran III

and that Benjen had offered to equip Howland Reed at the Tourney at Harrenhal so that he could challenge the squires who had attacked him:

“The wolf maid saw them too, and pointed them out to her brothers. ‘I could find you a horse, and some armor that might fit,’ the pup offered. The little crannogman thanked him, but gave no answer. His heart was torn. Crannogmen are smaller than most, but just as proud. The lad was no knight, no more than any of his people. We sit a boat more often than a horse, and our hands are made for oars, not lances. Much as he wished to have his vengeance, he feared he would only make a fool of himself and shame his people. […] But late on the afternoon of that second day, as the shadows grew long, a mystery knight appeared in the lists.”
[…] “It was the little crannogman, I bet.”
“No one knew,” said Meera, “but the mystery knight was short of stature, and clad in ill-fitting armor made up of bits and pieces.”

—ASOS, Bran II

…Well, then, yes I do think it was Benjen’s guilt over the whole Rhaegar/Lyanna thing that caused him to join the Night’s Watch. Though whether there was more to his role than helping create the Knight of the Laughing Tree, we have yet to see… but there is so much we have yet to learn of how exactly Rhaegar disappeared with Lyanna, and it’s possible that Benjen was involved there too. At least GRRM has said that we will get an answer someday…

Spirit Interview with Gre (Vampire) & Dam (Werevampire)
  • These two decided to do the interview together, and its hilarious. They are hysterical, I am laughing pretty much the entire time, but they are also the two spirits that I got to when I need the dirty shit done, if you know what I mean. But I decided to post this how it happened because its funny as shit, although I am missing some bits as it happened in my astral home...
  • (On a side note, they request nobody call them anything cutesy, after seeing Au's interview responses.)
  • Starting off, only Dam is present, and thinking they are doing it together I am a little stumped.
  • Me: Is Gre coming? I thought you two wanted to do it together?
  • Dam: Hes coming, just getting ready. (Hes got a wicked grin on his face so I know something is up.)
  • Me: Oh shit. What is going on.
  • Dam: ...
  • Me: Alright well, lets start off with you then Dam, what do you prefer to be called for the interview, and let everyone know what you are.
  • Dam: Dam! But not like the swear word damn, like if you cut off the first part of my name.
  • Me: Got it...
  • Dam: And I am a werevampire...
  • *Gre shows up, we both look over, Dam starts roaring with laughter and I do too* (He -Gre- shows up dressed in black fishnets and a pink tutu like mini skirt and no shirt.)
  • Me: What the fuck are you wearing? Why? You realize they cant see you right?
  • Gre: You said to show off my personality!
  • Me: ...
  • Gre: What? You don't like it.
  • Me: Just... you never cease to surprise me is all.
  • Gre: Its my punk princess look!
  • Dam: I didn't know you planned that! Show them the picture that looks like him so they can get a full visual!
  • Gre: YEA DO IT!
  • Me: Alright alright!
  • (Will post that after this)
  • Both: YES!
  • Me: Ok G, what would you like to be called during the interview and what are you?
  • Gre: Call me whatever and I am a vampire.
  • Me: Alright I am going to regret this, but what are your favorite offerings...
  • *Dam gets a really suggestive look on his face and raises his eyebrow.*
  • Gre: Blood. And Sex.
  • Me: & what are your favorite ways to communicate with me?
  • Gre: Astral work.
  • Dam: Same.
  • Me: @hat sort of things do the two of you typically do within the family?
  • Dam: Protection typically. Offensive defense essentially.
  • Gre: WE FUCK SHIT UP!
  • Me: ... You are like a teenager sometimes I swear...
  • Gre: They make funny memes!
  • Me: Oh, Tumblr will love you... Annnnyway, how do you get along within the family, and how long have you been around?
  • Dam: I fit in quite well when I came to you 5 or so months ago? 6?
  • Me: Yea Gre pretty much adopted you as his partner in crime that he never knew he needed.
  • Gre: Hes perfect for me! I have worked with you about two years, and I think I annoy a few but most tend to like me!
  • Me: You can be a handful sometimes...
  • Gre: Well I get shit done then get a chance to not be so serious all the time!
  • Me: True! So what attracted you to working with humans?
  • Gre: Humans are such fragile, sickly things but are so fearless sometimes its fascinating. How you leave your house sometimes when everything can kill you amazes me sometimes.
  • Dam: Well she has to pay rent.
  • Gre: You are so practical sometimes.
  • Dam: ...
  • Gre: I know you are right but seriously she could get run over by that small human on wheels and die!
  • Me: The toddler on the trike down the hall wouldn't be able to kill me. Maybe bruise my shin and leave a bump for awhile.
  • Gre: See! And nobody wants that!
  • Me: I don't think it would hurt that bad, babe.
  • Dam: Well I am more interested in some of the culture, but humans can make for happy hunting too...
  • Me: (ignoring the hunting bit on purpose) Speaking of culture, what is your favorite human media bit?
  • Dam: Ramones are pretty cool, I like when you play them.
  • Gre: Rocky Horror! You remember-
  • Me: I do!
  • *Gre gives a satisfied smile*
  • Me: Who did you know who you wanted to go with as far as a human companion?
  • Gre: Well, you would put up with my humor..
  • Dam: Heh, you just know. Meshing energies and all that stink but its similar to how you know you want to work with us. I specifically wanted to work with you because you are important. Not just to us but to others and will be to more.
  • Gre: Agreed.
  • (This is something others have touched on but they never go into depth.)
  • Me: I wont dig into that more because I know you wont tell me... What first impressions did you have of me?
  • Gre: You had work to do. Not in the fact that you were weak, but you know you have work to do and you are willing to do it. Theres a fire that burns in you and you feed it.
  • Dam: You are also accepting of all of us, despite our personalities or behaviors and we are able to earn your trust.
  • Me: Has that opinion changed over time?
  • Dam: Well you still put up with his shit.
  • Gre: Im a princess.
  • Me: *laughs* Point taken.
  • Dam: You are good at accepting challenges and make good mental calculations as to the best course of action in many situations, which saves you a lot of trouble. My opinion of you has always been good.
  • Gre: Gettin' shit doooone.
  • Me: Holy crap dude. (they are both laughing) Alright last question for now-
  • Gre: Donuts?!
  • Me: Yes...
  • Gre: The ones filled with shit because when you smash them they pop all over like smashing a heart.
  • Dam: What the-
  • Gre: I had that one planned!
  • Me: (hysterically laughing at this point) I am done.
  • Gre: BYE WEBINARS!
  • Me: What?
  • Dam: You mean internet people?
  • Gre: Whatever.
Talk Less, Laugh More

Summary: Alexander Hamilton has a habit of saying exactly the wrong thing. Luckily, Eliza knows how to cheer herself up.

A/N: This is my Squealing Santa gift to fanficsandfluff. Greetings from the anonymous nondenominational holiday figure of your choice! Your Avengers fanfiction on deviantart was the first I’d ever seen of tickle fics, and you inspired to me keep looking for them – and eventually to give writing them a try :) Thank you so much, and I hope you enjoy! (also, this has so much plot and I don’t know how to write dating people and I am so sorry)

***

The weather outside has turned truly miserable, she’s breaking the behavior code from every lady’s book she’s ever read, and her dress has long since given up on settling into the graceful folds that Angelica manages so effortlessly, but Eliza thinks that she has never been more happy in her entire life.

Partly due to the atmosphere, of course – with a fire lit in almost every room the house is almost cozy despite the howling wind that whistles outside windows and seeps through walls, and the strains of a quartet playing float up from the ballroom below. But truly, I’s the company she’s keeping. Not twenty feet away, Alexander Hamilton is sorting through her father’s bookshelves in search of a treatise of slavery (alone! With an eligible young man! What Angelica and Peggy would say if they weren’t occupied downstairs), all the while holding forth on the essay he’s planning to write. It’s a bit much for her to follow – he hasn’t stopped talking for nearly half an hour – but his voice buoys her along, joining the crackling fire to lure her into a lazy contentment.

“Come sit with me,” she says without thinking, and blushes.

A story from the sites of the accident.

I’m going to cautiously share this here, in hopes that more people will know about this tragedy and the impact it has had. We’ve had enough political rage, but we need more focus on the human side of the story.

This is not my story, it is taken with permission from OP.

So I was at Jindo [the site of the accident] today for…I won’t call it volunteer work per se but just to help them clean up and such, and I made a few posts here in my break times.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments; I know you can’t be here with me in person, but I will relay your good vibes to the mourners here.

The reason I am writing this from my car, of all places, is because I need some time to calm down after crying my eyes out.

I was picking up trash and cigarette butts in one corner when my girlfriend, who I thought was sleeping in the car, came to me sobbing with a 10000-won bill [roughly $10] in her hand. I was surprised and asked her why she was crying, as well as where she got the money from. She told me that an old lady had given it to her. When I asked her what had happened, she said…

“When you got out of the car, I got out just after you. An old lady approached me and said,

‘You came here with that young man, didn’t you? I saw you were working too, did you come from Seoul? Thank you for your hard work.

I know this isn’t much, but since you can’t get much of a dinner here just take this and buy yourselves something later…’

My girlfriend refused to take it, but she couldn’t bring herself to reject the money after seeing the lady’s eyes.

“Miss, I guess my granddaughter can’t come home anymore, right? It’s been too long since the ship sank…I thought it was some bad dream, but now, if I could find her body I’ll wish for nothing else….in any case, thank you for coming such a long way, I’m sorry that’s all I have…”

My girlfriend could barely finish her story, she was crying so hard. I tried to hold my own tears in while I comforted her, and returned to the car….but as soon as I saw the folded bill, I burst into tears.

Fuck….

I’m never doing this kind of volunteer work again.

If accidents like these never happen again, I won’t have to do this again, and I never want to.

There are more people here, now that it’s night, so we decided to leave tomorrow morning.

Even as I write this, my chest feels constricted and I can hardly breathe.

I’m furious–why did this have to happen?

In my 38 years of life, this is one incident I will never forget.


At least I can take some comfort in the fact that my girlfriend and I did the right thing today.

Finally, I’d just like to say 

that I’m so sorry, to the families of the lost students, including the old lady, and that I hope the departed may rest in peace.

The OP said that he didn’t mind people posting this on other sites, if the terribleness of the accident could be better known, and as long as there were no harsh or rude comments. So please, keep your decency and let’s keep the comments on a positive note.
