i used to love this show omg

Dear Evan Hansen

THIS HAS LITERALLY TAKEN OVER MY LIFE NOW. ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY. LIKE I WILL LISTEN TO THIS SOUNDTRACK 24/7. It’s soundtrack and show I feel like is so much different to other musicals on Broadway currently. Mostly because DEH is more modern? As someone who used to blast things like Wicked and Hamilton, it’s good to have more of a modern soundtrack. It’s also very damn reliable. Especially I would think to people with depression, anxiety, etc. Evan is a very reliable person, to me I think and others. Then THIS FUCKING CAST. I FORGOT THERES ONLY 9 PEOPLE BECAUSE IT SOUNDS SO GOOD. THATS ALL IM GONNA SAY. Welp, my little “FUCK DEH IS GOOD” rant is over for now.

I love you so much for all the Moffat praise, I'm so happy to see someone rational on this god forbidden site

omg thank you so much

he isn’t a flawless person or writer but he is a good writer who loves this damn show so hard, and where it counts, he is a Good Person who really fucking tries ok

he’s a precious sarcastic nerd who gets this show better than anyone, and he’s given us so much

his era of Who has validated my space-loving sapphic ass so much and now thanks to his work over the last few years we finally have a female Doctor and I just wanna hug him and tell him how much his work means to me honestly

anonymous asked:

OMG CHILL no one said we forgive him for being abusive like... we just said we think he shouldn't be judged for sleeping with people and not feeling anything for them. Like he can't be forced to know how to show love if he never received love. Who said we think he should be forgiven... just because like one person said that don't label the MC and Mr. Min shippers with those dumb fucks.

ellie im mad rn. Your literally misunderstanding us. and making us seem like some stupid little kids who don’t have any morals. im just done.

Sterek and Stiles is a were-creature au

(full disclosure i hate the idea of were-creature stiles but I’m gonna try my hardest for you!!) 

“I’m a were-fox,” Stiles reminded himself with panic rising in his voice. He didn’t even like foxes and now he’d have to get use to all these new smell and sight enhancements and it would be too much. That was until Derek showed up and with him, an aura of sweetness and love and Stiles decided that maybe this wouldn’t be so bad after all. 

1.) Give me a pairing.
2.) Give me an AU setting.
3.) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

so today my professor told us how she found her 8 year old neighbor crying on his way home from school last week and when she asked what happened, he told her that while he was at hockey tryouts these white boys called him the N word and told him that black people couldn’t play hockey. she felt so bad for him because she said he was always sweet and well mannered to her. she convinced her brother to give up his tickets to see the Flyers vs Habs game so she could give it to her neighbor. somehow he ended up meeting Wayne Simmonds and the boy’s father told him what happened.

apparently Wayne had a really sad look on his face after he heard what happened but he told the kid to not give up even though people’s words can hurt. and when Wayne told the kid that he believed in him and that he could be the greatest hockey player in the world and maybe even play for the Flyers one day if he didn’t give up, the kid started to cry. later Wayne gave the boy his email address and said that if those boys ever messed with him again, that he was to email him and that he would have his back.

after the boy and father thanked Wayne, he had a big smile on his face and just said, “us handsome fellas gotta stick together, eh?”

Wolfgang & Sun

  • I was SO HAPPY to see so much interactions between Sun and Wolfgang happened in this season – I loved this pair since Christmas special when they had this whole “if you need help” “I’m fine. If you need some air” “I’m good” then * both smirk * scene
  • There are so many things Sun and Wolfgang share in common
  • Both are the quiet ones in the cluster; they are badasses; and THEY DESERVE PEACE & HAPPINESS – and LOVE!
  • They might be strong on the outside, but they have soft heart inside; and that sometimes make these two people blame themselves for what they’ve done
  • Their mothers loved them; their fathers…one was abusive and the other was ignorant; and their other family members (like Steiner and Joong Ki) just couldn’t leave them in peace
  • One thing they don’t share in common, other than their fighting style, is that when Sun needs help, she asks for help. Whereas Wolfgang would NEVER, EVER ask for help – even when he’s being captured and tortured by Whispers
  • I really hope that in the end, both Sun and Wolfgang find their own peace (except rest-in-peace bullshit, I won’t allow it)

Favorite moments in season 2 (spoilers!)

2x02 Who Am I?

Originally posted by warinfinities

– I like that when they’re visiting each other, neither of them says ‘hi’ or ‘what’s up?’ Instead they just simply have a short eye contact and that’s it. The zoo scene sums up Sun and Wolfgang’s relationship. And we love this quiet-yet-we-know-each-other-by-just-looking-at-one’s-eyes. PERFECTION

– Not just from this scene, but most conversations between Sun and Wolfgang are short, very straightforward & concise…and that’s what makes their dynamic so real and sincere because we know both characters share a deep connection through their unspoken pain

2x03 Obligate Mutualisms

@thelovelylights

– OK, I love Sun just the way she is. But I absolutely love her when she embodies Wolfang. Two words; and her level of being badass just exploded there. Hats off to Doona’s perfect portrayal of Wolfgang/Max

2x07 I Have No Room In My Heart For Hate

@princessamericachavez

– In graveyard scene, everyone from the cluster talks to her from their heart…from their experience. What differentiates Wolfgang from rest of them is he’s the only one who says ‘the world would be better without’ people like Joong Ki and Wolfgang’s father. Revenge is a double-edged sword. It’s bittersweet. And Wolfgang has already had a taste of revenge..several times. However, I don’t think sweetness of revenge or his skepticism about justice are entire reasons why he says it. I think it’s because deep down he knows Sun is stronger than she thinks; strong enough to not only make Joong Ki pay for her father’s death but also take in the bitterness of revenge

2x07 I Have No Room In My Heart For Hate & 2x09 What Family Actually Means

@litoshernandos

@superdamnvers

– This is not an interaction between them, but I really wanted to go over this little parallel scenes. Another thing I love about Sun and Wolfgang is they don’t use their strengths to bully someone or to just show off. They use them to protect their loved ones when they are treated like shit by shitty people not nicely

2x11 You Want A War?

@nestarearland

– I know I didn’t include “I would” in Gala scene. Doesn’t mean I don’t like it; it’s just kinda goes along with what I’ve written in graveyard scene. I didn’t want to be redundant. But yeah, I liked that scene too: Wolfgang in gangsta mode walking by Sun’s side while others are trying to stop her XD

– But back to the point, I personally like this scene more simply because I love when Wolfgang shows his gentle and caring side of him towards his cluster. Like when he cared for Will [x]. Also, we don’t really get to see Sun being afraid a lot (I mean of course, she’s a warrior), so it was kinda good to see her being weak and vulnerable for a moment but then quickly regaining her calmness after her cluster reassures she’s going to be fine. It shows how much Sun trusts her cluster; and how much her cluster cares for her (PLATONIC LOVE RIGHT HERE PEOPLE!)


I would say most interactions between Wolfgang and Sun happened during ‘sharing’ – resulting great action sequences, which also proves (again) that these two are not talkers; they’re fighters. Maybe that’s why they make an awesome pair!

Okay but clearly Yuuri is the Beauty and Viktor is the Beast, where's the fic?

Because Viktor is 100000000% extra and a little bit vain about his looks and he’d totally piss off like Witch Yakov

And then Viktor would be all dramatic a like OMG WHO WOULD EVEN LOVE A BEAST LIKE ME after Yakov idk turns his hair white instead of silver and gives viktor some bad facial hair

And Yuuri would show up like I have katsudon and am basically blind without glasses show me ur skating rink

And Phichit screeches over the rink loudspeaker like TALE AS OLD AS MY LAST INSTAGRAM POST

and then they make out a lot and Yuuri teaches viktor how to use a damn razor and the end

aaand done! after like thousand years after I said I’ll do it  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
just go and fucking read, READ the majestuoso y hermoso fanfic de @hanasaku-shijin  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10803781/1/Eternal

it’s just too beautiful, I love it, you write so good!!!
but I have to confess something to you, I was like… reading fanfic about little witch academia and found an author that I ended up loving a lot
and just about 1 hour? I notice that it was you xD omg I’m such an idiot

As the Blackout ends, I want to say:

As the @Miraculousblackout comes to an end, I, a consumer of Fan-Art and Fan-Fic, want to say this to all the creators of Fan-Art and Fan-Fic out there.

You are why I came to Tumblr.  I love what you do, I appreciate what you do, I respect all the hard work that you do.

In other Social Media platforms, I can go a whole day seeing nothing but “Politics” and “Hate is Rising” and “Everything Looks Bleak” and on and on.

I do see these things on Tumblr as well, and yes–they are important.  We do need to talk about them.  

But they are not the only important thing.  

I come here to Tumblr every day, and I see your art, and your joy in creation, your inspiration, your humor, your angst, your OMG-cliffhangers, and I am reminded why those other things are important.  

Art is important.  Artists are important.   Art is vaster and more enduring than those other things, for while we may love our countries, artists created the flags, artists composed the anthems, artists memorialized the events of history in ways that mere dry texts can never fulfill.  Artists tell us about love, they show us the absurdity of life, they keep alive those who are gone.   Art is how we tell the story of being Human, and without it we are not human at all.  Humanity cannot be measured, but if it were, then Artists would be measured as the most Human of us all, for they do what no machine can yet replace, nor science reduce to numbers. 

I come to Tumblr because when Facebook has me ready to weep in rage and despair, I can see your artwork and remember that it is not all in vain.  There is still joy in the world.   As others are determined to tear down, you are still creating.

To those artists who are retiring from the field of fan-art: I am sorry.  I respect your decision, and I wish it had never been necessary.  You gifted us with the products of your practice and your toil, the software and art supplies you paid for out of your own pockets and the art lessons or the years spent teaching yourself, and you were treated like what you did was not important.  As if it was something dropped on the ground that anyone could pick up and claim as their own. That is not just an insult to the Artists, it is an insult to Art itself.  

Rest now.  You gave more than anyone can demand of you, and more was taken from you than you should ever have had to fear losing.  Rest.  

To those artists who are wading back into the fray, I stand with you.  I will continue to support you, and I will continue to document art-theft accounts when I find them. 

Thank you for all you have done for this community.  

“The arts are essen­tial to any com­plete national life. The State owes it to itself to sus­tain and encour­age them….Ill fares the race which fails to salute the arts with the rev­er­ence and delight which are their due.”  – Winston Churchill

this is a gift, it comes with a price
who is the lamb and who is the knife
midas is king and he holds me so tight
and turns me to gold in the sunlight…


check out this stunning portrait of Shaera and Solas i commissioned from @noquietinhere! i can’t get over Shae’s perfect little face and solas’s tender, loving expression. i am in love with how the green glow of the mark lights up their faces, the tarot-style details, their hand holding, her curves, and how the whole thing feels so warm and intimate.

i wanted to capture this moment between them because i have an non-mage inquisitor who is fascinated by her newly acquired magic and seeks to perfect her ability to use it by calling on Solas for help and training! and of course he takes advantage of any opportunity to be close to her because he liek vhenan <333 solas is weak for shaera and it definitely shows here.

Piper: You have taught me that love hurts

Me: awww

Piper: You have taught me that life…it hurts

Me: awww

Piper: and I want to be there for you

Me: What is she doing?

Piper: I want us to be there for each other so that maybe it hurts a little less

Me: Omg is she doing what I think she’s doing? No way, no fucking way. This show would never be that nice to me.

Piper: Alex Pearl Vause

Me: No fucking way she’s not doing it. Wait a minute Alex’s middle name is Pearl? (snickers)

Piper: Will you be my partner…

Me: Get the fuck out of here! (Cries silently)

Piper: …through love and through pain and through beauty fish forever?

Me: (Shrieks)

Piper: Alex, will you marry me?

Me: (falls off bed and dies)

My 2nd Ice Show Adventure (Fantasy On Ice 2017 in Niigata)

Summer 2015, I went for my very 1st ice show, Fantasy On Ice (FaOI) in Kobe, and it was the 1st time I saw ‘nama-Yuzu’ (real-life Yuzuru) after being a fan since 2014 Olympics. 

Summer 2016, I had tickets for FaOI again but this time, Yuzu pulled out of all ice shows to recover from lisfranc ligament injury, so I sold my ticket, prayed for Yuzu’s health and happiness, sent him letters of support, and managed to survive the terribly long off-season with other long-suffering Yuzu-fans.  

This summer (2017), I am so busy with work projects that I have no time for fangirling, not to mention ice shows, and I moaned about it to a few friends. Almost like a miracle, one friend told me that if I wanted, she could get tickets for me for FaOI Niigata!  I decided I could get away for the weekend.  I must!  

The shows were on Friday, Saturday, Sunday (16-18 June) and it would be my first time in Niigata.  I took an ANA flight (yay! ANA!) and arrived in Niigata airport on Thursday.   The first meal I had was a very delicious bowl of ramen, and as I ate, I was surprised that I could taste bits of yuzu (the fruit).  I have never had ramen with yuzu before and so I was really happy!  It was really oiishiiiiiiiiii~~!!!  What a great omen, I thought.  My first meal on this trip was with yuzu. xD    

On this 1st night, there was something else that made me think of Yuzu…. I saw Bourbon ice-cream!  “Mo chotto”!  

I was way too full from the huge bowl of ramen and so I did not buy ‘Mo Chotto’ ice-cream to try.  Thought I’d try it another day but I did not pass by this shop again and I could not find it anywhere else.  Sigh.  Regret.  The snack is common but the ice-cream is not. 

Friday 16 June (ice show is at 7pm, doors open at 6pm)  

In the morning, I changed hotel.  Checked into ANA Crowne Plaza (yay, ANA!) because it’s a short walk to the ice show venue.  A Yuzu-fan friend, D-chan, messaged to say she is nearby and asked me to join her for coffee.  OK!   It was a lovely breezy walk from ANA hotel to an area called Pier Bandai and I found her in a cosy little coffee place with comfy sofas.  I ordered an iced coffee and we chatted away.  “I can’t believe I’m really here….”  “He’s somewhere near us now, you know….”  “Omg we’re breathing the same air as him….”   xD

Happiness is talking with a Yuzu-fan while sipping coffee in Japan. :)  

Soon it was time to meet another friend, Kay, the wonderful person who got my tickets for me.  We had plans for an early dinner together and then go for the ice show.  I met her at Niigata Station and we walked around looking for food. Some restaurants were not yet opened for dinner as it was too early. Luckily there was a soba shop that was open and we both felt like eating soba, so in we went.  (soba= buckwheat noodles) 

We ordered their specialty which was soba dipped in a warm broth with tender slices of pork.  And once again, I had the lovely surprise of finding yuzu in it!   I really love the citrusy fragrance it gave to the soupy noodles.  We felt so happy eating soba with yuzu.  It was a very good meal. :)  

From Niigata station, there was a shuttle bus to the show venue, running pretty frequently.  (I really love Japan;  they think of everything.) There was no real need to look for the bus-stop, just look for the long queue!  Luckily, it was a short wait as the buses came quickly and soon we were on our way to Toki Messe!   Just a 10-minute bus ride and we were there, a lovely glassy tall building by the river.  

We were early but the queue for FaOI merchandise was already VERY LONG. It’s ok, let’s admire the pretty Tanabata decorations and chit-chat while we wait in line.  Finally we could at least SEE the sale counter!  It’s going to be our turn!  I got a T-shirt, a towel and the programme booklet.  So happy to get the towel because 2 years ago at FaOI Kobe, the towel was sold out before it was my turn, on the very 1st day!  

Then Kay pointed out to me something that made me very happy…. Ice Rink Sendai merchandise counter!  I have not had the chance to buy anything from Yuzu’s hometown rink before, so I hurried towards it excitedly.  Wow, they really have a lot of pretty things!  

The photo of Yuzu wearing ‘Irene gloves’ was there.  (Irene is short for ‘Ice Rink Sendai’ and is the name of the mascot.)  And also his signature with a message saying “I will never forget, I will continue to do my best and give my support.” (my translation from Japanese)   And there is a little mushroom at the end. ^^

What a simple but heartwarming message for his hometown rink….

I bought the ‘Irene’ gloves, T-shirt, keychain and some stationery.  I love the pink theme!

There were also stalls selling really beautiful books and magazines….. I want them all!

Glad we were early.  It was hard to take a good look at the stalls when it got very crowded later.  

I was also very amused to see a counter that rented out binoculars, haha.  I did not rent one on the 1st day, but I did for the next 2 days.  Best decision ever.  I could see clearly all his cute facial expressions and who he was talking to all the time at the finale.  (Guess who. :))  

And of course, there were big boxes for fan letters and gifts to skaters.  Yuzu’s box filled up quickly and the inner bag had to be changed several times by the staff.  I used my new Irene stationery to write 2 fan letters (one on behalf of the FB international fan group and one from myself) and dropped them into the box on the 2nd day.  On the 3rd day, I decided to also drop a letter into Oda-san’s box.  I told him I enjoy his skating, his talk shows and his blog, thanked him for his great friendship with Yuzu, and may God bless his beautiful family. :)   

After all the excitement outside, it’s time to go in.  The seating arena for Niigata is smaller than some other places, so even the furthest row was not that far away.  I was somewhere in the middle, nearer one end of the rink.  

As usual, there were guys in black jackets who walk around holding up big signs that say “No taking of photos or videos”.  (I took this pic before the show, no pics during the show.  Law-abiding fan.) 

The show started and the skaters were introduced one or two at a time.  Yuzu was the last one to come out and the applause and cheers for him were huge.  It was clear who the star of the show was. :) 

After the opening number, the skaters did their individual performances.  I enjoyed watching all of them.  My favourite ones were the 2 performances by Nobunari Oda – the music was beautiful for both and I love to watch his jumps;  it’s like he lands on marshmallow (once again I am reminded of why they gave him that T-shirt saying ‘landing with cat’s feet’);  Sex Bomb by Plushenko was hilarious and I laughed so much;  and Shizuka Arakawa– what supreme grace and beauty.

Ice dancers Papadakis and Cizeron were very beautiful to watch. So glad they performed in this FaOI.  The acrobatic duo of 2 men in Swan Lake tutu performing ‘Notte Stellata’ was very funny.  I have seen Yuzu perform to this song so beautifully so many times in the past season (and watched it live at 4CC) and now this exact same song is skated in such a comical way….. I was so tickled. xD

For the record, the other skaters were Kaori Sakamoto, Marin Honda, Akiko Suzuki, Miki Ando, Shoma Uno, Evgenia Medvedeva, Denis Vasiljevs, Javier Fernandez, Elladj Balde, Johnny Weir, Stephane Lambiel, Jeffrey Buttle and the Chesnas.  Many of them performed twice, before and after the intermission.  Much thanks to all for their wonderful performances!     

At the end was Yuzu’s Chopin Ballade Number 1.  I had the good fortune of watching this 2 years ago, at the last show of FaOI 2015, when he gave us a surprise performance with live piano music played by Kotaro Fukuma.  At that time, he did the 2nd half of his usual Chopin, in a black FaOI finale shirt. It was awesome. So this time, I was really excited that I would see the full performance with that beautiful white Chopin top. And wow…. he really took my breath away. Although I have watched him perform Chopin for 2 seasons already, it felt like a different Chopin. It was the same and yet it was different. More beautiful, more powerful, more flow, more speed, more precision…. it was already so perfect, how can it be even better, but it is!  (based on my ‘expert’ opinion.)   I am so thrilled that he is doing this for the new season! I LOVE Chopin!

After Chopin, he went backstage to dry his sweat and then came out again to do an encore of ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ (his SP for last season). It was funny to watch LGC performed in that sweet Chopin costume. So mismatched, haha.

For the finale, Yuzu came out in a glittery blue FaOI top with a cat ears-hair band on his head. He danced in the group number and even did a cartwheel on the ice!  And he waved happily to all of us. It was so good to see him enjoying himself. I am very glad he did not do any quad battles at the end. He just did a side lunge for the 1st show (with one under a set of hurdles, so amazing!), a hydroblade for the 2nd show, and a ‘muscle man’ pose with Plushenko at the last show. And when others are doing their jumps or special elements in the middle of the rink, he would skate from his original position to the space between his idol Plushenko and good buddy Nobu. And he was often talking to Plush. Ahhh… Yuzu, still the cute fan-boy after all these years. :)))

After the finale, when all the other skaters have left the rink, Yuzu took a mic and spoke to thank all of us. He said things like please take care of yourselves, take care as you go home, have a meal, have a good rest, who is staying on for tomorrow’s show? oh that’s quite a lot of you (laughs), thank you for your support, I really enjoyed myself, eh to, eh to, there is still so much that I want to say, but never mind, it is already very late, I should stop here, I really want to thank all of you for today……. And he would end by putting the mic down and shouting as loudly as he could with his own voice “Arigato gozaimashita!”

Listening to him speak was just wonderful…. I was touched by his concern for his fans and also half-laughing at some things he said. He wanted to talk more but he did not want to hold us back as it was already way past 10pm on that 1st night. That dear talkative boy. :) Oh Yuzu, your fans would listen to you all night, if only we could. But then we want you to rest too! You need a good rest and a good meal more than us!

In his speech for the 2nd day, he also thanked the people who made the ice rink.  He said the ice was very good to skate on and they all loved skating there. Yuzu and his grateful heart. :) 

On that 2nd day, I was seated at the other end, where the stage was.  (I took this pic as I was leaving.)  When he was speaking, he was standing on the left of the stage just outside the ice.  I had a very clear side view of him through my binoculars ( I was halfway up the stands).  His face was sweaty but dazzling with happiness as he spoke.  How I wish I was sitting this close!   

The shows for Saturday and Sunday were at 2 pm and 1pm respectively.

Most skaters performed the same programmes for all 3 shows in Niigata but a few skaters did a different one for one of the shows. Like Marin Honda, for the 2nd show, she performed in a very cute Japan Airlines air stewardess costume. Elladj Balde was the skater before Marin (he did a great Michael Jackson medley) and when he finished his performance, he skated to one end with his chair and just sat there. Marin skated out in her JAL costume, went to him and said in Japanese, “Sir, would you like some coffee or tea?” Haha, that was how she started and I really enjoyed her performance.  For the other 2 days, she did ‘Crime Tale’.   Javier also had a different one in the 2nd show;  instead of his new SP, it was a funny pirate one where he was a cleaner-boy daydreaming. Johnny Weir performed ‘Amazing Grace’ in the 2nd half for the 1st 2 days, then on the 3rd day, he did a song called ‘Creep’.  His performance was so heart-wrenching, I almost cried.  I can still feel the pain he expressed even now when I think back….. Johnny’s skating is really very special. No wonder he is one of the skaters that Yuzu has looked up to since junior days.

In the 3rd show, which was the last FaOI show for 2017, Yuzu had some surprises for us. 

After performing Chopin, he went backstage as usual, and the rink was dark. As with the previous 2 shows, we waited a while and then started to call his name. “Yuzu, Yuzu….” The MC said we have to shout his name louder because he can’t hear us. So we shouted “YUZU!” as loudly as we could, expecting him to appear for the LGC encore. Suddenly, the sounds of an electric guitar filled the air. There was a guitarist on stage and he was playing ‘Parisienne Walkways’!!!! We recognised it immediately and the fan beside me turned to me with eyes as big as saucers. She grabbed my hand and we started screaming and jumping about, mad with excitement! Yuzu then skated out to all our screams and did his legendary PW wearing his Chopin costume (he did the 2nd half of the usual PW programme). Oh wow!!! What a surprise! What a treat!!! Yuzu’s PW with live guitar!!! I felt like the luckiest fan in the world!!!

After that amazing encore, he went backstage and the finale started. The other skaters came out in turns to do the group number. When Yuzu came out again for his part in the finale, we all went hysterical again! Because he was wearing a yellow headband with Pooh ears!! Hahaha…… this guy really knows how to make his fans scream. He looked so adorable! It was wonderful to see him looking so happy and enjoying himself so much.
(Later, I saw a Japanese fan on twitter say the Pooh headbands were all sold out. But of course. The Yuzuru-effect. XD) 

(2 pics above are fans’ screenshots of a TV news segment on FaOI.)

Then at the very end of the show, when the other skaters have left the rink, he gave a very emotional speech and made me cry.  He said that last year he could not do anything (no ice shows at all due to injury), so now he is feeling very happy to be back doing this and he loves skating and he is feeling most blessed and he is the happiest person in the world. (*may not be the exact words but the meaning is such.)  And he thanked the organisers and other people and all of us.  It was not so much the words he said but the way he said them. There were so much emotions. His voice trembled a bit at the beginning. It sounded like he was tearing and was trying to control himself not to cry. As he spoke, his feelings were just gushing out…… he was just so utterly happy and grateful for everything!

Then he did the usual ending-shout;  he put down the mic, cupped his hands near his mouth and shouted “arigato-gozaimashita!”, and we all shouted back “arigato-gozaimashita!”  And then he bowed and waved and went in through the curtains.

Tears were running down my face. I continued to say softly, “Arigato, Yuzu-kun, arigato.”  Thank you, Yuzu, thank you.  My tears just kept flowing as I thought back.  After going through so much… so much….. he is finally where he is supposed to be…….   

Seeing Yuzu so happy and healthy is one of the best things in the world. 

I met Kay after the show and we talked about how special Yuzu is.  And how is it that he can make us fly thousands of miles to watch him perform just those few minutes and we feel it’s so worth our time, money and energy.  She would be flying home that night, and for me, my flight home was the next day.  As with all good things, it ended too quickly but our hearts were filled to overflowing.

I am very grateful to Kay for her help with tickets and for her fun company.  We met up every day and ate some very delicious food together.  On the 2nd day after the show, we walked around and found a little ramen shop to have dinner.  And again there was yuzu in it!!!  (See the little yellow strips on top of the soup?)  Kay also ordered a yuzu sparkling wine.  I had a sip and it was lovely!   Another meal with yuzu…. ahhh life is good. :) 

On the last night after the ice show, I shopped for stuff like P&G Bold clothes detergent, Lenor clothes deodoriser and softener, Ghana chocolate and Xylitol gum.  I was so happy to find all these things near my hotel, and after I lugged my heavy shopping back to my hotel room, I realised I had forgotten to buy rice! Niigata is famous for very good rice and I had wanted to buy a small bag of rice home. :((  I messaged Kay to lament and she replied, it’s ok, he is not the ambassador for rice.  Hahaha….. I love Yuzu-fans.  (I did manage to get a bag of rice before I left for the airport the next day. :) ) 

Yuzu-fans are really wonderful and generous.  And just like Yuzu, they surprise me all the time.  On the 2nd night, D-chan passed a package to me from a fan that I don’t even know.  Inside were some Japanese newspapers and advertisements with Yuzu, and also ‘Weekend Sendai’!!!  OMG I nearly fainted with happiness.  (Weekend Sendai is a free travel magazine given out in Japan many months back.  Yuzu is featured inside recommending food and places in Sendai. 1st pic below, left side.)   Gosh, how did she know it’s something I had been coveting for ages now???  I told D-chan to give her my utmost gratitude.  And thank you, D-chan, for being a good friend and messenger!  So glad I met you on this trip!    

Another fan gave me gorgeous photos of Yuzu that she had taken herself at competitions.  And she said, “Thank you for the good work that you do in the fan group.”  Aww….. I was so touched!   Thank you, CL!

I was so happy when I was packing my luggage on the last night in Niigata.  I had so many precious goodies in my bag!   Thank you, dear Yuzu-fans!!!  Hope to see you all again! 

Below are pics of my FaOI tee, towel and booklet that I bought on Day 1.

There is so much more that I want to say, but this is already so long, I should stop here now.  Dear Yuzu, thank you for everything!!!  May God bless you and your family.  Always supporting you and hope to see you again soon!   

Note: This is written one month after the event due to being too busy at work.  If any details of FaOI are incorrect, I am sorry for my bad memory. :P

anonymous asked:

When do you think Jimin started having feelings for Jungkook? I feel like Jungkook liked him from the very beginning but I think Jimin only started seeing him as more than a dongsaeng later on?

Hello, Anonie! <3 I’m glad you asked me about this ^^

When I first got into Jikook, I didn’t think about them in other way than Jimin, being in love with Jungkook first, being obvious about having this crush and patiently waiting for Jungkook to realize he likes him, too. I saw it everywhere, at least at the time I felt like I do. But as days passed and I did my Jikook research (:D) and watched them interact and change and grow up I came to different theory – just the one you have, too. I’m still not sure, it could be the other way, we will never know for sure (we will never even know if they’re real, but we all are aware of this) but…

I think Jungkook really realized his feelings first. I don’t know when, I don’t really think it was immediate, he was still a kid. But I think that as time passed and he relied on his loving hyung, Jimin being a close figure to him – struggling with shyness, new things and issues, both from Busan, etc, he realized he maybe feels about Jimin differently than other members. Maybe he found him pretty in a way he hadn’t find pretty anyone else, he couldn’t imagine Jimin, not being there for him… who knows. I just think that somewhere along the way of them, going through everything together he realized he likes Jimin.

I think that would explain his behavior towards Jimin, the pushing away thing, Jungkook being flustered and generally looking like he hates the interaction with Jimin. He was also very shy, so that’s another thing. Just imagine being shy as him, liking a person you shouldn’t like, being quite confused while people are watching you. I’m not surprised he was like that. Add the fact that the person follows you everywhere, jumps on you, tries to kiss you or get a kiss from you, says weird things about how much they like you… just overdoing everything and you don’t even know if it’s true, but anyway, you’re so shy and flustered.

On the other hand Jimin was, in the early period, the one that looked like completely obsessed with Jeon. As I mentioned, he was really clingy sometimes. That lead many people to the thought that he’s head over heels for Jungkook and can’t control his crush. Well, I think that to some point it was a concept for Jimin at the time – he was the one that was all over cute maknae, cooing over him, making us weak and cry from the cuteness.

And what wasn’t part of the concept was indeed his „whippedness“ for Jungkook, but I don’t think it was in a way „head over heels love“. I think Jimin utterly loved Jungkook as a young, cute little brother, probably reminding him of his own bro. He was all over Jungkook because he liked showing how much he likes the cute little bun. Some people are like that – they just can’t resist the urge of loving someone’s cuteness, but in completely platonic way. I don’t think Jimin was realizing that what he feels for Jungkook is not only „omg he’s so cute“ – not until suddenly, Jungkook grew up. Or Jimin at least realized he grew up.

It would make also sense in another way: how many people who are terribly in love or are crushing on you, screams it to the world, do things Jimin did to Jungkook, even risking suspicion of really being in love with a bandmate? That’s what makes me believe in the concept thing.
So to sum it up: I think Jungkook was the first to realize his feelings, but didn’t admit them or act on them. He probably tried to ignore them as far as he could. Jimin on the other hand took more time to realize what he feels for Jungkook, but unlike him, he admitted these feelings to himself.

And now, after stating my theory, finally answering your question. When do I think this happened? I would say sometime around War Of Hormone era/autumn-winter of 2014. Basically it was when suddenly, the dynamics started to change. Maybe management decided to let go of the concept for Jimin, following Jungkook around, who knows. But Jimin is basically more chill. We can see the difference here, for example.

This was the summer of 2014 (June the 14th) and Jimin stated, as always, that he would go for a trip with Jungkook if he’d be sad. And we can see how unamused Jungkook was by this (once again, let’s just imagine he had crush on Jimin first, denying it in front of himself, but still… and Jimin just goes around, telling stuff like this, while it doesn’t even have to be real?):

And this was on May 5, 2015. We all know this moment of happily shy Jungkook, and Jimin being *calm af* in comparison with himself, just like 8 months ago.

We also see the change in BTS Bombs, Jimin not being that clingy and Jungkook being more relaxed about their interactions. The most „change-showing“ bomb for me is the one with „Jimin TV“ a.k.a the one where he went to look for Jungkook pt.2.
(Meanwhile, Jungkook told in an interview that, and I quote: „It’s easiest to talk with Jimin-hyung. It seems that Jimin-hyung likes me, but I ignore him because I’m shy.“ …like, doesn’t it look like everyone likes you, Kook-ah? Why are you extra shy with Jimin?)
The whole bomb starts with little exchange of „Jungkook is avoiding me.“ – it could be a joke, it could be based on truth slightly, we will never know. But it could mean something happened before (causing the atmosphere around them to change.)

Anyway, when they do their „interview for Jimin TV“, we see them *relaxed* and casual. Jungkook is different, the air around them is different. Because Jiminie is not all over him. But still, they smile a lot, Jimin looks so happy and everything… annnnd it’s worth to mention this time Jungkook didn’t flinch or cringe when Jimin tried to kiss him – or course he moved away, but not in a forceful way, just laughing.
These are just screenshots, but look at the Bomb. There is even a conspiracy-like/hypothetical/microscopically subconscious nod from Jungkook when Jimin asks him for a kiss.:

So, this is around the time I think Jimin realized what’s going on in his heart and accepted it. Answer why is just in this BTS bomb. As Jimin waits for Jungkook to wrap up the interview, he says this in non-mocking voice, more like little surprised „when-did-this-happen“ soft voice:

So… I think that as Jimin noticed Jungkook, growing up, he realized it’s not all just cooing over his cuteness. And as a bonus thing for the end, here are Jimin’s-heart eyes from that time (not only JK has them!♥)

(PS: I don’t think that until middle-late 2015 they really talked about it with each other, just Jimin kinda accepted what he’s feeling, and maybe waited for Jungkook to accept his own feelings, too.)

Hope you liked this, Anonie! ~ thanks for asking me and everyone, have a beautiful day/night ♥

RFA+ Saeran reactions to a homemade Valentine from MC (bc they don’t have any money to go buy them something so making something is the next best thing!)

Homemade gifts are the best thing ever

Yoosung:

  • You and Yoosung were both broke college students so fancy gifts were definitely off the table
  • Money was limited but you had enough to buy heaps of clay from the store since it wasn’t very expensive
  • It took a month before Valentine’s Day to make this (it would’ve been faster but Yoosung constantly being around made it hard to hide)
  • This was probably the greatest (and hardest) figure you’ve worked on so far and Yoosung was going to l o v e it 
  • “Happy Valentine’s Day, Yoosung! Open my gift first!” you said excitedly
  • Yoosung quickly and carefully tore off the red wrapping paper and unveiled the greatest thing he’s ever seen
  • It was an amazingly detailed figure of his and your LOLOL avatars doing a hero pose together arm-in-arm
  • “OMG MC I LOVE THIS IT’S AMAZING AAAAAAAAA–”
  • He took lots of pictures to show off to his guild buddies and let it sit proudly on top of his desk
  • His guild members may or may not commission you to make their characters now

Jaehee:

  • Baehee would be happy with almost any gift but you wanted her to really love your gift
  • You figured she’d want something she could use often instead of something she could easily throw out
  • So you went out and bought a bunch of plain colored mugs
  • You were gonna decorate all of these to her liking so she could have coffee in the morning and think of you
  • It took about a week to decorate all 7 mugs (one per day)
  • The morning of Valentine’s Day, Jaehee got up to make her morning coffee only to find brand new ones in the cabinet??
  • And holy crap they’re beautiful and amazing and she loves you so much
  • She takes two of them out and pour coffee into them, fixing the drink to your own likings
  • She brought it to the bedroom where she woke you up with a forehead kiss, handing you the hot drink
  • “I love these, MC. Thank you very much for this”

Zen:

  • You thought long and hard about what to get Zen for Valentine’s Day
  • Something from the heart would make Zen more than happy
  • It finally came to mind on what you should do for him
  • There was one time Zen caught you singing in your room and he would not let go on how much he loved your voice, but you never sang around him again
  • So why not take his playlist and cover all the songs on there for him?
  • Seven could edit the audio and make a digital playlist as well as burn a cd with the songs
  • Not surprisingly most of the songs on there were his own
  • “H-here’s your gift, Zen, I hope you like it…” you handed him a pair of earbuds and his phone magically had a new playlist downloaded onto it (thanks seven)
  • Zen’s face produced a smile so big when he heard your voice sing his favorite song
  • He loves it so much and it’s like the only thing he ever listens to

Jumin:

  • Jumin can buy anything he wants so you definitely weren’t going to do that
  • You decided that you’d handmake something that he could never buy, something entirely unique
  • It took about two and a half weeks straight to work on it, but it was so worth it
  • You spent all your free time sewing together the perfect sweater for Jumin (you had a looot of free time)
  • It was navy blue, cotton, and had an Elizabeth 3rd face on the front
  • When Valentine’s Day rolled around, you excitedly presented the wrapped up gift to him
  • He opened it to reveal said sweater, and you swore that there was a twinkle in his eye
  • He loved the sweater so much, he wore it all the time (excluding to work because he needs to look professional there)
  • So proud to show it off because like ‘hell yeah mc made this and you can’t buy it with money i bought it with my LOVE’

707:

  • For this year’s Valentine’s Day you decided that you would make something for Saeyoung because he can buy everything he wants online
  • So you put your idea into action, buying sewing supplies, cloth, ribbon, fake fur, etc
  • You were going to make a giant plushie of his dear Elly (like the size of those giant teddy bears)
  • It took like a month to make, and you had to work on it at Jaehee’s place so Saeyoung wouldn’t find out
  • When you finished, you drove home with it and carried it into the front door
  • “Saeyouuuuuung~ Come here, I have a gift for you!”
  • You hear fast footsteps rushing towards you before finally reaching the living room
  • “What’d you get me–OH MY GOD, ELLY!!!
  • He’s latched onto it and will not let go of it
  • You also think he’s crying
  • “I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MC I DON’T DESERVE YOU”

Unknown:

  • He’s never celebrated Valentine’s Day so you wanted his first gift to be very special
  • It was an easy idea to some to mind and it sure wasn’t a bad one
  • Saeran was very fond of sweets so why not make them yourself?
  • You spent the whole day before preparing a giant batch for him and his happiness was going to be so worth it
  • The next day you came up to him, handing him your crappily made heart shaped box
  • “Happy Valentine’s Day, Saeran! I made these myself, I hope you like them…”
  • He smiled and thanked you before popping one into his mouth
  • His eyes went wide and he kept popping more and more in
  • “Haha, I take it that you like them?”
  • You were responded with him shoving one in your mouth
  • They were really good
Adam’s Rib (part 1 of 3)

Pairing: Lin-Manuel x Reader

Summary: Lin is a bartender. You need a drink.

Word Count: a fuck ton (approx 18k)

A/N: it’s problematic and full of plot holes but maybe let it go and try and enjoy it

So, this has been a long time coming, we know. It’s been a whirlwind of a time, and we can’t tell you how much has gone into this. We just wanted to thank all of you for being so patient with us, we know this took so much longer than we anticipated it would. 

Thank you so much for supporting our lack of chill and insanity, it truly means so much to us that we have such an incredible following, and we still can’t believe all of you exist! We love you all so very much!! Both of us are extremely emotional about every single aspect of this universe, and we are legitimately super excited to show you what we’ve been concocting this entire time (so much yelling behind the scenes, y’all, omg). 

Warnings: for now, it’s just alcohol and drinking, but this may or may not get a bit darker in parts two and three.

And now, without further ado, we hearby present part ONE of THREE of Adam’s Rib.

– Team GTNW –


“Hey, Lin, could I get another beer?”

“Stan,” Lin sighed, resting his hands on the bar in between them. “We both know you don’t need another.”

“Come on, you already took my keys so what harm could it do?”

Lin raised his eyebrows at the patron, a middle-aged man with graying hair and a fondness for wearing Hawaiian shirts in winter. As a bartender, Lin technically had the right to cut Stan off, call his slurring ass a cab, and move on to serving the handful of other patrons hanging around the bar at nine p.m. on a Tuesday.
