author’s note: surprise! \o/ I honestly have no idea how or why this happened. yesterday I just… started writing, and here we are, a few thousand words later. also, bear in mind that this is a sequel to blue orchids, so you need to read that one first if you want to understand this short piece. hope you all enjoy!

This story is set six years into the future within Blue Orchids’ universe.

The sun rays are melting on your skin. It has been a while since the skies opened up like this, leaving the sun bare to the living, its warmth a pleasant gift after days of storm and gloom. The sand under your legs and feet is, fortunately, not scorching — not yet, at least. The early morning is still warming up to the pristine sun, and the salty winds of the beach are still a strange mixture of the growing heatwave and the remnants of past iciness.

You cannot remember the last time you visited the beach, but it does not feel foreign or uncomfortable. It feels like you belong, mind at peace and body molding to the sand as your extended legs allow your toes to brush against the gentle waves that break and ebb away, water still too chilly to enjoy at its fullest.

Hello everyone! I recently finished high school (just about 3 weeks ago, actually) and I figured I’d make a list of things for those of you just entering, or even just looking for some advice in general. :^) Some bg info is that I went to a 4-year, public high school in California, so some of these tips may not apply, depending on where you are in the world.

- Let friendships happen. There’s no need to actively look for friends or be super against meeting new people in high school; it all happens pretty naturally. Be open minded and you’ll meet some people you never thought you’d ever know! :^)

- Join clubs that you’re interested in. If you join a boring club you have no real interest in, chances are it’ll look pretty bland on college apps (if you so choose to include it). My advice is to join a couple clubs and dedicate yourself to them so that your involvement can actually mean something. That being said, you can also try to join an academic club like NHS or CSF (California only) that will add some shine to your grades if/when you do well.

- Learn how to study. This might sound like a no-brainer, but I need to emphasize this! I truthfully never really studied(!!!) until my sophomore year of high school (same time I started my studyblr!), which is pretty crazy. Before then, I was privileged enough to pass every honors class I took with A’s, but once I got to high school, I was scrambling to get my life together simply because I didn’t know how to study. Freshman year was that sort of rude awakening that I NEEDED. I realized that life wasn’t always going to be that easy for me, so learning how to study for high school is a crucial piece of advice.

- Get a planner. Doesn’t have to be fancy. My school sells pre-made planners for $5 every year, so the initiation to become organized wasn’t that hard. But for some of you who need a little something to stay on track, get yourself a notebook where you can write down your daily assignments and USE. IT! Memory isn’t foolproof, unfortunately, so a planner can really save your life in the long run. Plus, you can chart out how long you have/need to study for your next exam.

- School food sucks. I don’t need to say this twice. Learn how to pack a lunch, buy granola bars in bulk, and carry a water bottle everywhere to save yourself from that midday hunger. A pack of chips in the vending machine isn’t worth $1, and you have more options if you shop outside of school, anyway.

- Deal with teachers. More often than none, you are going to have a teacher you won’t like. However, rather than complain about how bad they are at teaching, find a way to study yourself so that your grade can stay above water, no matter who your teacher might be. And if you find a good teacher, then great! Become friends with them. You’ll find that many teachers are really unique and willing to get to know their students on a friendly level. If you do well in their class, too, they’ll probably even be willing to write those dreaded letters of rec in your senior year!

- Don’t rush into dating. I’m sorry I just had to say: there are so many more fish in the sea that is OUTSIDE high school, so there should be no reason for you to want to rush and find a bf/gf. But if you do, then be smart about it!

- Your locker is a base. Only sometimes hungry? Got allergies? Need a makeup retouch throughout the day? Stash your PopTarts (yeah I did that; bought a few boxes and kept them there throughout the year), tissues, and cosmetics in your locker so that you can always have some backup support. Your future self will thank you.

- About standardized tests….Yeah, I know, I hate them too. You can talk to your counselor about when/if to take them when the time comes around. However, when I say that, I mean that if you plan on taking the SAT junior year, start prepping the summer after sophomore year. There is really no reason for you to start preparation in your freshman year, because chances are, you won’t understand anything yet!

- Talk to your counselor. Your counselor is there to help you decide on what classes to take or what career to pursue. It’s their job to help you! Personally, my counselor was a cranky old lady (sorry) who was often impatient, but she did still listen to what I had to say, and she helped sort out my classes. Also remember that they’re there if you need a mental health hotline, or if you just need to talk out your stress.

- Don’t procrastinate. Easy to say, much harder to do. But if you use your planner and spread out your work little by little, it’s much less painful than to do a five page essay in the wee hours of the morning it’s due. Same goes for college apps! For example, the UC essays are due at the end of November, but you should get started on them at the beginning/mid of October, because you’ll want to do a LOT of proofreading. That being said…

- Get friends and teachers to help you. Friends offer another mind, and teachers can help you with the nitty-gritty of things. Sometimes, teachers won’t have time to help your bigger assignments like essays, but you can still ask them for tips and advice here and there. Trust me, it really helps when you know what exactly you’re supposed to be doing.

- Take note of the syllabuses. It’ll save your life when the semester is coming to an end and you can check back to see what counts as an A in the class, or how much that next test/final will affect your grade. Every teacher is different, after all, so extra credit can’t save you all the time. You’ll also want to make sure you have a means to contact your teachers, whether it be e-mail or phone so you can ask them questions when school is out for the day.

- Use your summers wisely. If you can, take a preparation class for that math class you really need help in, or that writing class you know you’re going to have trouble with. The summer before junior year is a great time to take an SAT/ACT preparation class as well. If you plan on taking a subject you’re a little less knowledgeable in, previewing the subject content is also a great way to make sure you won’t regret not changing your schedule sooner.

- Accept high school for what it is. High school isn’t like the movies. It’s not drowning in drama like you think it might be, and the lockers (at least in my school) were not nearly big enough to shove a person in. Don’t be too disappointed when the school dances aren’t as glamorous as they’re made out to seem. But do enjoy yourself. You’re here for four years, so you might as well! Go out with your friends on weekends. Treat yourself to some ice cream after school on a Wednesday if you did really well on that test you were fearing. Because even though everyone says so–and it really doesn’t seem like it when you enter–high school will be done in a flash.

I could include so much more, but there really isn’t enough time. Thanks for reading, and feel free to ask me any other questions! :^)

Fic: The Bridesmaid Wore Peach

Hi everyone!  This was originally the meet cute I was going to do for a different story, but I scrapped it and went in another direction for that piece. I already had this half written, so I thought I would flesh it out a bit more and share. Kind of different from my usual stories, but fun for me. Read it on Ao3 or below. I hope you enjoy! 

The Bridesmaid Wore Peach

Felicity’s last day in Las Vegas before heading across the country to start her new job also happened to be the day of her best friend Melanie’s wedding. Her dearest friend, always with a weird sense of humor, had chosen peach as the color of her bridesmaid dresses.

Peach with a giant bow in the back.

“Awesome,” Felicity murmured under her breath as she squeezed into the concoction.  She glanced at herself in the mirror and grimaced as her blond hair and pale complexion made her practically blend into the background. She heard a snicker behind her.

“You look lovely.” Melanie was feigning a straight face.

“I look like a ghost!” Felicity frowned, causing Melanie to laugh so hard her mascara ran down her face.

“You can be certain about one thing…you look better than me,” Melanie’s sister Jessica moaned as she waddled into the room, her pregnant body very evident in her peach dress. Melanie and Felicity both looked at each other and started laughing again.

“Why did you put us in these things if you thought they were ugly?” Jessica asked the hysterical bride.

Melanie calmed her laughter with deep breaths as she wiped the mascara off her face and retouched her wedding makeup.

“If I must be in front of all these people all day, I need some comic relief,” she said. “I don’t know how I would get through this day without you girls.”

anonymous asked:

Your recent work is amazing! Are you willing to share a before-and-after of the Mountain Mudis picture?

Thank you! And sure!

This was actually a composite of two photos taken within half a second of each other. My 50mm prime lens wasn’t getting everything I needed in a single frame, and I didn’t have time to adjust my position without risking the dogs moving. That’s why the crop/aspect-ratio looks sort of funky as well - the two images are overlapping some.


After LR:

Combined in PS and last adjustments made:

I also opted to keep the dramatic lens flare (I’m a sucker for them), but I did tone it down just a touch.

[First of all, your English is pretty, and secondly…]

“What do I….like about a girl?…..hmm”

“Do we have a preference, Justin?”

“hmmm……..” * thoughtful   *


“I want someone that……will never leave my side…..no matter what…..eternally”

“Someone to love me……unconditionally”

“Someone to spend eternity together”

”Maybe…..I should be ….more specific….hmm"

“I prefer someone …..that likes spicy things”

“I would like to…..have a dinner ….just the two….of us ……with things we love to eat”

“Under the moonlight……pulling my knife and….haaaa”

“OH!……the p-person has to like ….pain too!”

“The person has to …..appreciate and love….this way of showing such a deep bond…..mmm”

“I guess this counts as personality……right?”

“mmm…..now body….”

“………..”  *confused sigh *

“A…….healthy body…….”

“…..what did you say, Justin?”

“oh…that’s correct…”

“A body that heals fast…..this way I would need to……retouch the wounds again and again………”

“Tasting your sweet blood……”

“Haa…..I’m getting excited just to think about it…”

“This sweet tasty blood of yours…”

* happy sigh and cute laugh *



T.T There we go! Yatta! Hugs for all of you. Sorry for the repeat. I hope you enjoy this one! Special thanks to anon for this ask!

anonymous asked:

I have a question 😐 Okay .. my friend wanted me to take her wedding pictures & i've never charged her in the past so i only told her sure for $40 .. sooo she gets mad & her & her other friend throw shade on twitter & snapchat about me saying I flaked and whatever . I had to work the day of her wedding and told her that buuut I havent talked to her since & I found out recently she removed me from snapchat . Am I wrong for feeling the way I do? a "friend" should not act that way 🤔

Okay love.
Come sit here with Scottie 😌

First things first, do not undervalue yourself as an artist.

Secondly, charging $40 for a wedding is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE 🙅🏽‍♂️ Wedding budgets are too high for you to only get paid $40 fucking dollars. That’s mad disrespectful.

When you are trying to size up the amount you want to charge people for your photography services, you need to take into account for a couple of things:

1️⃣ Your Time:

YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE! You are taking time out of your day to photograph your client, plus additional time editing the photos in post (if you retouch your photos as well) Not to mention the investment & time you are taking to learn WHO your client is.

(That’s if you’re not photographing a family member or a friend. But we’ll get to that in a moment 😊)

2️⃣ Potential Fees:

Do I have to book a studio space?
NO (cool 👍🏽) YES (I’m charging you more 💰)

Do I have to travel to where you are located?
NO (cool 👍🏽) YES (I’m charging you more 💰)


Take in account to ANY expenses you may have to spend in order to give your client the spectacular photo shoot and photos that they want!!

Once you have assessed everything that you’ll need in order to have a great photo shoot, you’ll be able to give a more proper quote for your services 👌🏽

NOW!!! I haven’t even spoken on the matter of your “friend” 🙄😒 I hope you and your friend work it out. BUT, to keep it 💯, they did not support you as a photographer and took advantage of you. NIP THAT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP IN THE BUD!!!!!!

It will always blow my mind how some “friends” will support celebrities and other people who have NO IDEA THAT THEY EXIST first, before they would me. And then have the audacity to try and guilt me when I won’t give them the “Oh We Friends Discount” …….. FUCK OUTTA HERE 😂 if it’s gonna be like that, I’d rather not work you at all….. Period.

Bruce Wayne Imagine

Request: “reader likes the suit? or something like that?”

Bruce catches you admiring the suit (short)

*very very slight smut. More suggestive actually…

It was never something you’d taken much notice of before. In fact, it was much like the blue and grey sky that clouded Gotham, it was just a norm. His suit had been a part of him for a very longtime, longer than you were with him. Much like himself, the suit grew, evolved and shaped with him. It was a mask that hid his identity and struck fear into the deranged minds of criminals in Gotham. So what made you notice it now?

Was it the wear that it had held, the scratches and marks it put on show? Maybe it was the fact that Bruce was now an aged man, you wouldn’t tell him that of course, he’d deny it straight away. Maybe his greying hair complimented the black, or maybe his muscles which were in its final peak, had begun to really fill out each crevice in the suit.


You look up, Bruce watching you intently. He’d been standing a few metres away from you; you: watching and waiting for him to arrive home. You were sitting on a counter, your hand tapping your chin, when Bruce had come back from patrol.

You’d come to test your theory:

That the suit, in fact, captivated you (and possibly was a turn on).

“What are you doing?”

Now, of course you wouldn’t dare tell him your own mission. That would be ridiculous, and quite frankly, a death sentence. So, you look up and shrug, smiling lightly,

“Just wanted to wait for you tonight.”

Bruce nodded, his cowl still on. You bit your lip, waiting for him to take it off, to see if his hair, indeed complimented the suit.

His hand reached for the cowl, and with every inch it got closer, the more your body was inching off the counter, and moving forward closer to him.

He pulled it off, running his hand through his hair to tame it.

You almost let out a loud sigh, but you resisted

Yes, his hair in fact, did compliment his suit.

Your eyes lit up. You then realised, that it was a combination of everything. His hair, his face, his muscles-oh dear.

“You sure?” He asks. You look up from his body, nodding slightly faster than usual.

“Y-yeah” You say, smiling.

Bruce walks up to you, every step he takes closer making his body appear more tall and bulky. You push yourself back, realising you’re not going anywhere with the counter behind you.

Bruce places both hands to your side, caging you with his arms.

His face was inches from yours, his eyes peering deep into yours. You swallowed hard, watching his eyes trace yours in the suit that made him extremely intimidating but attractive.

“Are you really sure?” He asks. His voice is low and god it makes you collapse at your feet. You find yourself unable to nod, or shake your head. Why?

Maybe it was Bruce’s authority, or maybe, it was the fact that he was in the Batsuit. And oh did Bruce know. He knew from the moment he saw you eyeballing his body in the suit, and the way your body inched further off the table towards him when he took of his cowl, that you had become attracted to the suit.

“Do you like the suit, (y/n)?” He asks innocently with a smirk. You look down, his body was dangerously close to yours.

“uhm-“ You begin, looking back up. You swear his face is closer. “yes.” You say hesitantly, almost a whisper.

Bruce is truly surprised at how quiet you are.  Bruce grabs your waist, lifting you effortlessly up onto the counter behind you. You were now eye level. You stared intensely into his, his hands slowly running down the side of your waist and down your inner thigh. His mouth inches further to your neck, his hot breath touching your sensitive skin.

“Good.” He lets go, turning and walking away, “I was thinking it was getting a little old and maybe needed some retouching. But it must still hold it’s charm. Thanks.”

And there he left you, all hot and flustered. You jumped off, shaking your head with a grin on your face, watch as he walks away, smirking as he gives a quick look back to you.

“You bastard.”

–well there you go, a very small amount of smut.

–can that even be counted as smut? i’m not even sure.

–Hope you have a good day! :D

BTS When You Are a Makeup Stylist

Jin: Jin would love to have you as a new makeup stylist, he could see the passion you put into doing his makeup. Especially the way you applied a peach pink lip tint to his pouty mouth. He would have an easy talk with you before sneaking away to the craft table. Unfortunately, he would be caught by you scolding him for ruining his makeup. After redoing the look, Jin had a great idea. He was going to make your life a living hell as he walked back for a second plate. 

Suga: Suga would not be happy with you at first. You had reluctantly woken him up from his cat nap when you realized you had finish all the members’ makeup, except for Suga. He would probably glare at you a little while slumping into the makeup chair. Trying to make the situation lighter, you would casually admit his songwriting skills were inspiring and wanting to ask him a few questions on his writing process. You happen to like write songs on the side sometimes and after hearing that, Suga would open up to you and talk endlessly about his new song ideas. 

J-Hope: Hobi would turn into an aegyo machine the minute he saw you were going to be their makeup stylist for the day. Hobi loves to meet new people and you would definitely be on his favorites list. He would constantly ask you questions to make your time together last longer so he could get to know you better. Once the photoshoot was done and no more makeup retouches were needed, he probably come over and give you a big ol’ hug. Honestly that would be the best day of your life.   

Rap Monster: I think Namjoon would be the calmest out of the members once he saw you. They got new makeup stylists all the time, but that didn’t mean Namjoon wasn’t try to remain cool in from of you. The conversation between the two of you would be so easy it almost seemed like you two had been old friends catching up. I think he would be the perfect mix of intellectual discussion, compliments, and teasing you to call him oppa.  

Jimin: Honestly I think Jimin would be the most shy out of all the boys to talk to you while you were inches from his face. You would make small talk with him, which he would politely respond, but I think they would be short answers. Nothing that could lead to a deeper conversation. Once the photoshoot had begun, I think Jimin would feel stupid for not talking to you more and would make it up by staring at you the entire time during the photoshoot. He would use all his body language to make you notice him. Smirks, deep stares, and a casual wink here and there to keep your heart racing.

V: Tae would have a small crush on you the moment he saw you. For the entire day he would make sure to turn on his charm when you were around. He would do little things to impress you, like break out a few dance moves or tease Kookie to make you smile. But nothing too extreme Tae didn’t want you to think he was a player, he wanted you to see him as boyfriend material. Which you totally were doing in your head right now. 

Jungkook: Literally the second that Kookie saw you, he was determined to get your number by the end of the day. You were gorgeous and Kookie could not keep his eyes off of you. Which you totally noticed him staring at you, but he didn’t care one bit. It just gave him more reason to talk to you. Which he did, every moment he got. While you were applying the gel liner onto his eyes, or when you were doing the other’s members makeup. Hell, even when they got a few minutes rest from their dancing, Kookie would come over to ask you opinion on your dance moves. Oh yeah, he was definitely going to get your number.   

Yay, I made my first BTS reaction!! I hope you guys like and can I just say I’m low-key dying over RapMon’s gif.  (ι´Д`)ノ

mewwitch  asked:


peach: do you have any piercings or tattoos?

I am allergic to metal, so I do not have any piercings. It triggered when I got my ears pierced as a kid and suddenly I was reacting to my jeans clasps too, and next thing I knew, I had a staph infection. Terrible!

I can wear necklaces now as long as it’s not two days in a row, and I take them off during the evening of course. I know I could get gold everything, but…yeah no. My wedding ring is all I need for that, and I just have to be careful otherwise.

I do, however, have several tattoos.

My key has been retouched and outlined in black since this photo, but otherwise, that’s what I have. I’ve been considering starting to get my book covers as a sleeve on my other arm…


Prompt: Request for Chris (obviously lol) where you’re interviewing him but it all gets turned around because he’s so intrigued by you so he asks you a lot of questions instead. The interview going viral on tumblr etc. and fans are already shipping the two of you before they have the chance to even go on one date. They decide to give it a chance and end up falling hard for each other.


“Sorry, this is so unprofessional, I’m so, so, so sorry” I say after taking a sit. This is my very first big shot and I’m already blowing it away. I had to interview the whole crew of Captain America, I got the news two minutes before our schedule of interviews began. I was supposed to be the ready for my big shot, but this is so… lame. I didn’t even have the right outfit. I’m wearing a summer dress with flats. Well, at least I was allowed to run from one room to another. I look at my notes and realize who I’m sharing oxygen with. Holy shit. This is my last interview, not from the day, but my life. And… fuck. Obviously, the movie was Captain America, at some moment I was supposed to have the little talk with the main character. I should’ve known. But come one! I’m sitting in front of Chris Evans, I’m sweat, my hair’s a mess and so am I. It’s alright, I got it.

“Do you want a glass of water?” Chris calmly asked. I lifted my eyes just to find the deepest, bluest, most amazing eyes.

“Oh, I’m already late, I don’t think we should waste any more time… but thanks” I add looking in my post its. Someone offered me a glass of water and I looked up to find the man smiling amused.

“Well, it’s been a long day. You look…” and for that moment I held my breath. I know how I look. I’m a mess. I’m wearing probably a milligram compared to other interviewers in their designed clothes. I’m not fresh, I look tired, I… “different”.

“Do you need retouch?” his makeover asks to him, he denies with his head.

“So, who do I have the pleasure to be interviewed by?” he asks. I can’t speak. I clear my throat the moment I realize I sat all over my skirt, I’m showing the side of my tight, I seat again and try to keep it cool.

“Y/n, Radio Tune. I forgot to introduce myself, sorry. Hum, I guess that you get this mistakes a lot of times from people that interviews you” he denies with his head again.

“Well, mostly from my amazing fans or people that doesn’t know what they’re doing , which is obviously not your case, right?” I imitate his gesture and denied eith my head. I look in my post its and can’t find his questions. “So, shall we begin?”

“Of course, but… I mean, let’s do something, I’m guessing that you’ve answered the same questions the whole day, so why don’t you lead this? Tell me what the fans need to know about this particular movie of yours, which full name’s…” I look around the walls. I don’t remember the fucking name.

“Civil war” he adds “Do you want me to lead this interview? Because I’m in the mood to. I’ve been answering a lot, maybe it’s my moment to ask”

“Yeah, yeah, it’s great, let’s go that way. I’ll begin, alright?” I make a sign to my crew. “So, here we are with the one and only, Chris Evans, hello, Chris, thank you for conceding us this time. We are here to discuss your new…” in that moment he interrupts me.

“Hi, people, today I’m the interviwer, hi mom. Of course I’ll talk to you about Civil War, but I need to… improve my skills, so do you mind if I start asking you?” I make a pokerface. This can’t be happening.

“Alright, we have the novelty of Chris’s new face. The one that takes my job away” He laughs and I do too. People stopped what they were doing, now they paying attention to us.

“To begin, it’s a pleasure to meet such an adorable lady like you, y/n.” I feel how my skin gets hot and red. Most red than hot.

“Thank you?”

“I’d like to know and so to our audience if this beautiful damsel is in a relationship?” I laugh. I mean, come on!

“No, no… I’m single. Chris, hum”

“That’s all I needed to know, thanks for the interruption, we can go back to be the original interviewer and interviewed.”

After ten minutes I finish the questions I made up in the way. It’s over. I just wanna go home and cry for the rest of the day.

“Thank you very much, ladies and gentleman, Chris Evans. Thank you for listening and watching Radio Tune, reports y/n, have a wonderful day!” I keep my smile because we are rolling but I just… I don’t know.

“And… cut” I hear. Chris stands up and gives me his hand.

“You did it great, hum… I don’t want to be cliché but you look tired and I’m tired, so… would you like to go for dinner?” I’m shocked. I clear my throat. I smile, but I don’t know what to say. He’s expecting. I mean, come one! This shit doesn’t happen. I’m the silly and clumsy girl that just talked to him.

“You’re not being cliché. But I have to decline, I have to go to the studio to edit and… well, thank you, it was really nice to meet you.” And this is me. Reports y/n, the stupidest girl on the planet.


I open my Instagram account. I have a mention. Another mention. Since the interview aired, Chris and I have a couple name and a lot of petitions of being a real couple. I never thought I’d be a meme, I mean, maybe I did, but not for a shipping thing.

“I say: let’s give it a shot”. It’s Chris’s official account. He tagged me on a photo of the both of us with ‘relationship goals’ written on the picture. No fucking way. This is a cruel joke.

“Y/n, you have a call” my boss comes to my office just to tell me that, he hands me his phone and I arch my eyebrow, he shrugs.


“Hey, my favorite reporter” I feel how everything inside me starts working. Holy fuck. It’s Chris. My boss leaves me laughing.

“Hey… what’s up?” I try to stay cool.

“Well, I haven’t heard from you, and you didn’t replay my petition”

“I thought you were being a cliché, as you said” I try to defend myself. I hear his deep and lyrical laugh across the line.

“Yeah, I’ve been a little cliché, but… I meant it. Like… I’d like to see you again. Of course, when you’re free”

“I’d like that” I murmur.

“Great, open the door” I open my eyes wide. I open the door, he’s in front of me. Tall, beautiful… I lean my head. The phone’s still in my ear. I clear my throat. I smile.

“You couldn’t get away from the cliché of showing up, don’t you?” he shows a big smile before he leans on me and… you know what happens, this is so cliché, anyway ;)


Inspired by Regal Angel Fish| Kuoni 

Inspired by the underwater world of the Maldives for my latest work with Kuoni Travel. I get asked a lot where I find inspiration for my make-up looks? I find inspiration simply from every where, looking at the beautiful fish it didn’t take long for my creative side to come out! You have to trust your instincts, you have to believe in your vision and the process. You just need to go for it, do something, go a little crazy!

Inspiration can come from anywhere, especially on your travels. You have to be open to new ideas, new places and cultures. You can often get bogged down, stuck in your own little bubble and take for granted beautiful things you see every day. Travelling magnifies this for me, I am fortunate that make up has taken me all over the world, I like to think a little piece of everywhere I have visited inspires me subconsciously.

[Trans] Fun raking with BTS! @140921 K.Will’s Young Street Radio

140921 BTS@K.Will’s Young Street Radio

Q. (to Jungkook) Your nickname is Golden Maknae?

Jungkook : Rap monster hyung named me like that before our debut. Because he thought I am quite good in many ways.

Q. (to V) What’s ‘Bangtan! Bangtan! Bang Bang Tan!’?

V : I gain my strength just hearing it. It’s something we say before going up on stage. Like a fighting phrase we use to cheering up. Rap monster will say ‘Bangtan Bangtan’ and all of us will say ‘Bang Bang Tan!’ together.

Q. (to Jimin) Who make the dorm messy the most?

Jimin : It’s Kim Leader. Because he always destroys things and his snore when he’s sleeping is no kidding.

Q. (to Rap Monster) You destroy everything you touch?

Rap Monster : I do. For example, I broke the ladder when I went up to double bed and even if I am allowed to drive at my age, our members warn me not to do that because it can be very dangerous. If I drive, it will turn into a racing game.

Q. (to Suga) Are you a photographer of the group?

Suga : Yes, I am. I love taking a photo of our member and uploading it. I even do a retouching but not so long ago, I lost my memory card of what I took until now so I feel like I lost my confidence and it need to be boosted.

Whose photos need to be retouched the most?

Suga : Jungkook? I think because he’s growing up so his skin is growing too. But it’s getting a lot better now.

So who is the least?

Suga : It’s Rap monster. He has a really good skin.

(Rap Monster) Are you taking a good care of your skin?

Rap Monster : Never!

Jungkook : I do it the most!

Rap Monster : Jungkook has plenty of products and always recommend to us.

Jimin : I receive it a lots. I used to worry about my skin then Jungkook brought something to me and said ‘Hyung, why don’t you try this?’ My skin is really getting better now.

Jin : If Jungkook buys some products and it’s not match with his skin, he will give it out to us.

Are there any member that some specific parts on their face need to be retouched or fixed?

Suga : Besides skin retouching, I don’t think none of us need that because the basis of their faces are already good. (LOL xD)

Q. (to Jungkook) Ranking 3 singers you were fan of before your debut.

Jungkook : G- Dragon sunbaenim, IU sunbaenim and Sweden laundry (스웨덴 세탁소) sunbaenim.

Q. (to Jin) If Bang Shi Yuk president were your company’s trainee, ranking 3 things you would want to tell him the most.

Rap Monster : He(Bang PD) watches all of our show.

Jungkook : I have a lots to say!

Jin : First, Please try to rap a bit better.

and please improve your visual. Because it’s something that trainee should do.

(Jungkook comes to help Jin eventually) Wear a better clothe! (He speaks in informal form though xD)

Q. (to Rap Monster) Ranking 3 members with 4D Personalities.

Rap Monster : For third place, It’s J-hope. Because he has a lots of energy.

Next is Jungkook. This friend is not sleep and he lives in his own world. But I think this two is not that strange.

Number one is V. As you can see when he was introducing himself, “I’m V, who has the most confidence about introducing myself” I really didn’t know what was that means.

Suga : Sometime we have no idea what is he taking about. I’m not even sure if it’s Korean. We called it ‘V language’

Q. (to Suga.) Ranking 3 BTS’s favorite foods?

Suga : For me, It’s fried rice with chicken breast, chicken breast sandwich and 생치(something you eat with chicken breast)

K.Will : If you like this kind of food, your body must be very huge.

Suga : Nobody gonna believe this but I used to be very huge. Since my shoulder hurt, I was not allowed to exercise so I became very thin. But my shoulder is fine right now so I feel like I need to work out.

Jimin : He keep saying that for a few months and doing nothing

Q. (to J-Hope) Ranking 3 most good-looking members of BTS.

 J-Hope : Number 3 is Rap monster!

Rap monster : I really didn’t expect that.

Jimin : We either!!

J-hope : It’s personal taste. Number 2 is Suga!

and number 1 is J- Hope!

Suga : I and J-hope always talk to each other like this, in the fan sign event, ‘If I stand next to you, my photo will come out really well’ and J-Hope will be like ‘If I stand next to hyung, I will be captured very handsome too’

Q. (to Jimin) Ranking 3 members who look best in school uniform.

Jimin : It’s me, Jungkook and V.

So, who’s the one that doesn’t match the uniform the most?

Suga : Rap monster.

Jin : (to Jimin) You have to answer that right. Don’t look at me.

Rap monster : For me, It’s Suga hyung.

Jungkook : Me too!

Jimin : My heart hurt a bit when I looked at them (wearing school uniform) at that age.

Jin : At that age?!!!!!!!!!

Q. (to V) Ranking 3 things you surprised the most when promoting aboard.

V : The culture is very different from Korea.

All : Is that so?? We never know that before!

V : I can make friend very easy. We can exchange phone number if we do a broadcast together like this or we can say hi to people on street and become friend.

And the last thing is I can find a stuff that we don’t have in Korea.

K.Will : Now, I know why he is 4D!!

(**I translated from what I listened. It may not be 100% accurate cuz you know how much our boys talk but I try my best to summarize so you guys can read while waiting someone to sub it.

And! My English is not good so please bear with it or if any of you wants to correct me, do not hesitate! I want to improve myself too!)

I get a lot of messages asking what I look like without photo retouching. I do post unedited photos, especially for shoot previews or convention snapshots. But this time I figured a series of GIFs from video clips might give a better idea over more still images!

Characters cosplayed: Hiro Hamada super suit (Big Hero 6) → Hiro Hamada casual (Big Hero 6) → Kenshin Himura (Rurouni Kenshin live action) → Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan) → Cecil Palmer (Welcome to Night Vale) → Haruka Nanase (Free! Iwatobi Swim Club) Videos mostly by: Reskiy, other clip from Fuji TV

Looking at these all together, even I feel surprised by how facial expressions, styling (wig, makeup, etc.), camera angles, and lighting can make me look significantly different for each character!

Hi, I love your blog. It is so amazing and interactive and your writing is AWESOME. I was wondering if you could do a scenario where Jungkook celebrates his birthday with his girlfriend? Smutty is optional

Birthday Surprise

Originally posted by theking-or-thekid

Sorry I’ve been feeling kind of unmotivated and sad so I haven’t written anything. But I felt better today and finished this. Does anyone have any videos or songs that they can share with me? I suggest you check out CPH Girls by Christopher ft. Brandon Beal. I listened to this while writing.

“Is everything else ready for tonight?” you ask your friends as you walk to the store to get the last minute snacks and cake. 

You’ve been planning your boyfriend Jungkook’s Birthday Party with your friends for a month and today was finally the big day. You all wanted to give him a Party he wouldn’t easily forget, and you wanted to personally give him a night to remember. You decorated your whole flat in streamers and balloons, Jungkook didn’t have any idea. You told him a little white lie that you were going to go to a nice dinner so he didn’t suspect anything. The boys were with him at the studio keeping him distracted with filming and games. 

“Don’t worry Y/N. We just need the cake and a couple more sodas and then were good,” your friend Hailey responds.

“Y/N you get the cake and Hailey and I will get the sodas okay?” Sarah asks as you walk into the store. 

“Yeah no problem I’ll meet you too at the cashier,” you say as you head to the cake sections to pick up the cake you ordered. 

You had ordered a red velvet cake since its favorite color and it to read “Happy Birthday Kookie” on the top. When the artist drew the design it looked really good but you were skeptical on how it would turn out in reality. 

“Hi I’m here to pick up my cake, the name is Y/N.” you say to the man behind the counter. 

Scrolling through his list he quickly finds your name and disappears to the back telling you that he’ll bring it out quickly. A Minute later he rolls out your cake on a cart. It’s just like you imagined and big enough to feed all of the people you invited to celebrate. Thanking the man you push the cart to the cashier, your friends are already waiting for you there. After paying you transport everything safely in the car making sure that nothing can fall over.

“We have 30 min left before the boys come over and we still need to finish blowing up the balloons,” you say as you get in the car.

 “Well have plenty of time still, it won’t take us that much time 10 mins top plus driving back so well have 15 min to spare,” Hailey starts the engine and drives back to your flat. 

“I still need to get dressed though,” you exclaim as you look down your shirt to see what bra you have on. 

“Ohh girl you’re doing something special for him tonight aren’t you?!” they both exclaim as they watch your face turn red.

“No way Y/N! Go get it! Wear the red bra and panty set if you don’t already have it on. It looks really hot on you, plus it’s his favorite color. Do you need any condoms? Are you on the pill? Remember practice safe sex honey I don’t need a mini you or Jungkook running around,” Sarah teases you as you cover your face with your hands. 

“I am on the pill Sarah. Plus I have condoms thank you very much. Are you sure he’ll like it? I’ll change as soon as I get in if you two can start blowing up the rest of the balloons,” your face is burning as you tell them.

“Take all the time you need Y/N. We’ll finish the rest.” Hailey pulls up and Sarah pushes you out of the door to your flat. “Go get ready.”

You thank them as you run to open the door and get changed. Pulling off your shirt and jeans you quickly change your bra and panties to the red ones. Retouching your makeup you throw on a Black top with some skinny jeans just in time.

“The guests are here and Jimin just texted that they’re going to be here in 5 min. Damn you look good in that Y/N,” Hailey and Sarah come into your room to inform you. You already see a couple of your and Jungkook’s friends from the doorway. 

“Thanks babe but I’m Jungkook’s. Let’s go hide everyone and dim the lights. Hurry!” you rush them out of your room and rush to hide the 20 guests in your apartment. Finally everything is quiet and everyone is ready to surprise Jungkook.  

(Sorry but I actually wrote two ending to this, one is happy the other is sad)


Not a second to soon you hear a car pull up outside. The distinct voices of BTS arriving has you feeling giddy as you anticipate his surprise. Everyone is still as you hear the knock on your door.

“Jagiya I’m here. Open up. The boys are with me they wouldn’t leave me alone and said they wanted to see you too,” you hear Jungkook through the door.

Opening the door you beckon them in. Jungkook gives you a quick kiss and as he pulls away the lights turn on and everyone screams “Surprise” shocking him. 

“Happy Birthday Kookie!!” you say lovingly as you laugh at his shocked expression. You quickly wrap your arms around him in a big hug as everyone comes and engulfs him in a big group hug. You feel his body shake as he’s overcome with emotion and you indiscreetly wipe away a few stray tears. 

“Thank you so much,” he whispers in your ear as everyone pulls back and someone comes out with the cake.

“Later you’ll get another surprise”, you whisper seductively in his ear as you let him go. 

After blowing out the candles the party finally gets started and the music starts to fill in the packed room. Games and conversations keeps everyone occupied as hours pass by and the numbers dwindle down. Finally the only ones left are your two best friends and the BTS Boys. 

“You know what I think it’s time for us to leave too,” Hailey says as she sees you and Jungkook stare at each other not paying close attention to what the others are saying.

“Oh okay bye guys thanks for everything,” you tell them hugging them as they make their way to the door. 

“Do you need lube? There is never such a thing as too much lube!” Sarah whispers in your ear and you push her out of the door and answer, “Bye Guys.”

Turning to face your boyfriend you walk up to him and whisper seductively in his ear, “Are you ready for your final present? Me?”

You take his hand and lead him to the bedroom closing the door and turning to face him. You mouths lock onto each other and his hot hands leaves flames along your skin as he grips your waist pulling you closer. 

“Let’s take off the wrapping now Jagiya,” Jungkook says as he slips you out of your clothes leaving you in the sexy red bra and panty set.

“Happy Birthday Oppa,” you say.

“It most definitely is my Birthday,” he says as his fingers rub you over your wet panties. 

(Don’t read this if you don’t like sad WARNING)


The minutes tick by and you’re waiting for more than the 5 min Jimin promised you. You look at the clock wondering what could be taking so long. Quiet murmurs begin as you continue to wait for your doorbell to ring. 

“What’s taking them so long my goodness they were only 5 min away,” you whisper to Hailey who is hiding next to you.

All you hear are cars passing and the faint sound of a siren in the background. More time passes and you begin to worry why they are taking this long.

“I’m going to call Jimin and ask them where they are,” you tell everyone as you turn on the lights and begin to scroll through your contacts.

Just as you find Jimin’s name your phone rings and Jimin’s name is on the screen. You let out a laugh as you answer it.

“Jimin I was just about to call you! What is taking you guys so long? Did you guys get lost or something?” You ask.

“I’m sorry Y/N we’re at the hospital. We got hit by a car. Jungkook got hit bad,” Jimin sobs into the phone as you feel your heart stop at his words and your hold on the phone loosen. The phone falls to the ground as you do the same.

You feel nothing as an arm is put around you and hoisting you up. Everything is a blur and in seconds you’re in front of Jungkook. This body is broken and you feel broken too.


Sorry It’s past 12:30 am and I’m really tired. There might be spelling mistakes please understand. If you have any requests send them in. (If you want me to specifically do a request please write my name in it.) Goodnight everyone.

What’s in my school bag ?

Everyone is curious about the contents of other people’s bags for some reason.
I think it gives some insight about the person so here is a peek into my school soul. It also shows some of the college essentials!

(From top to bottom then left to right.)

  • BLUE CONTENT BAG: this little pouch is dedicated to girly items— sorry if that’s a cringe factor! It keeps all of those products concealed& organized. It’s a must- have if you want to discreetly go freshen up. Taking your bag is just not an option since that screams, “I’m bleeding” or “I’m leaving”.
  • BOOK: it’s bulky and I bought it at full price hence the gift wrap covering; I have to make it last and keep it in excellent condition if I want to resell and reuse it for the second section. This course actually comes in two parts, one beginning and the other advanced, so the book is used for the next class also so I definitely have to cover it. My professor made it mandatory to have the book each class for references and in- class cases and problems. If you can get away with not carrying a heavy book, I envy you!
  • CALCULATOR: this is a basic, scientific calculator. I have one of those huge graphing ones too, but I’m not taking a math this term (both fortunately and unfortunately). It’s good to be prepared and several other classes require calculations that I don’t want to do by hand so I have my handy- dandy calculator to compute those for me.
  • BACKPACK: it’s hipster- esque according to my boyfriend, but I find that it looks cute and I love the compartments. It’s easy enough for me to access my belongings, but has too many closures for anyone to mess with my stuff without notice. However, this bag’s strap on the bottom is slowly tearing, so I suggest you invest in a strong backpack and expensive does not equate to sturdiness. 
  • 3- SUBJECT NOTEBOOK: 3- subject notebook really means 1- subject notebook in half of the classes I have so beware! I find the cheap ones an honest alternative to the ones that cost a few more dollars. Notes, notes, notes so this is essential. Buy multiple when you see them on sale!
  • PLANNER: this is my favorite school supply and has grown in necessity tremendously. Time management is so vital to me and my planner helps me track all my obligations. Even if you have a calendar, nothing replaces handwriting items down and having them pop out at you.
  • PEN: it’s necessary, period. I prefer writing in pen, it feels smoother and it lasts longer. 
  • PENCILS: tests and a majority of work might be required to be completed in pencil so buy a pack. I only use #2 mechanical pencils for efficiency, convenience, & comfort. 
  • ERASER: this isn’t exactly a required material, but I find it useful and I hate bad erasures so I opt to just buy a quality retractable one.
  • BEAUTY ITEMS: I don’t carry an arsenal of makeup with me at school, but I admit to bringing a couple beauty items. These would be my necessities. I don’t wear makeup every single day— I don’t have time for that when I’m trying to maximize on every minute of sleep/ be lazy. I carry these items mainly for retouching if I need to on the days I do get ready, if I feel like I look like the walking dead, or I need to look more presentable and impress someone. The short list of items is: an eyeliner pencil, rollerball perfume, a folding brush/comb, and a pigmented lip balm.
  • HAIR: below the beauty products is a small group of hair claws (those grabbing clips) and a hair band, just for those days.
  • STAPLER: it isn’t the most used item, but when you have a strict professor, you might need this. I have one of the highest grades in class, but that didn’t prevent my professor from putting me on the spot for not having a paper stapled. There’s not much leniency in college and I’d rather not get grilled over a tiny piece of flimsy metal again.
  • USB: this is a must- buy. There is no way of getting out of buying one of these and I carry mine in my bag just because if I don’t constantly keep it in a specific spot it’ll go missing like the hundred cases of missing lip balms. You’ll use it for an endless number of assignments and other needs.
  • WALLET: as broke as a college student is, I usually bring my wallet with me for ID purposes or in case I need to spend money… Or often, want to spend some. I love my wallet, but I understand it’d be better if I brought a smaller one. 
  • PORTABLE CHARGER: this is the barely recognizable black block below my wallet next to the mints. I use my phone a lot, maybe a little excessively and combined with the quick drain of the iPhone’s battery, I need this if I have a long day ahead of me.
  • MINTS: fresh breath, a way to calm nerves, a method of concentrating, and a mid-class snack. I like having either mints or spray in my bag to be prepared and avoid any possible stanky situations and I personally love the taste.
  • HAND SANITIZER: this is just a simple hygiene and safety protocol to me. You’re constantly in an environment full of people while at school so that means a pool of germs to fight. It’s easy to just have this measure to feel and be cleaner when you feel like you need to be or before a snack, etc.

These are my essentials for most school days!

I hope you enjoyed this post.
