This movie was…well, it was something. And that something is terrible. My thoughts:
William Dafoe as Ryuk was amazing. He fit the part perfectly and was delightfully creepy.
Kieth Stanfield was surprisingly good as L. His mannerisms were perfect, and his more emotional approach gave the character an appealing weakness amidst his oddity.
The few gambits that actually appeared were very well-crafted, particularly the finale. They actually felt like Death Note, unlike the rest of the film.
Light’s facial expressions and girlish screams made me laugh so much that I’m putting them here
The establishing shots existing only to demonstrate how Mia and Light are edgy outcasts who will naturally have perfect chemistry
Everything about Light’s character. He’s the opposite of the original character- an outcast, stupid, easily controlled by his emotions, acts like the most suspicious person on the planet, outright admits to being Kira to L’s face- everything that made the original Light great is gone and replaced with something that doesn’t fit.
How is decapitation the first method of death you think of for a school bully
The pacing is so bad. Like, it’s hard to even give a specific example because the entire movie counts.
“Your mom was kind of a hippie.” THAT DOES NOT EXCUSE HOW STUPID HIS NAME SOUNDS.
Where are the mind games and gambits? There were precisely two moments that felt like the original in terms of genius and complexity.
Character motivations. Almost no one has a believable reason for doing what they do. Mia especially. She just…comes out of left field.
“If we make the deaths super gory, people will think we’re cool.”
“If we say the word fuck a lot, people will think we’re cool.”
The lack of subtlety.
L comes from a creepy orphanage for some reason
Matsuda is not here
The romantic plot is so. Bad. “Hey, I can impress a girl by showing her how I have the power to murder anyone I want!” “Hey, I’m into that!” “Let’s plot the deaths of dozens of people on our next date!”
On that note, all the dialogue is terrible
There’s something about the way everyone treats L that’s just…off. In the original, he was eccentric but respected. Here, he’s eccentric and no one likes him.
Why is Watari so obsessed with sleep????
Watari was pretty much wasted tbh
No feel of rivalry between Light and L whatsoever.
THE TOP HAT
Why is everything so edgy????
The flowers that just friggin…explode when Mia lands on them
What is with the corny pop music at inappropriate times???
Light having a “Normal People Scare Me” sticker on his locker pretty much summarizes the entire movie
No potato chip scene. A travesty
Basically, watch this movie if you want a good laugh via ridiculous edginess, unneeded gore, and necessary swearing. I would’ve liked to see an Americanized Death Note that made better use of its differences from the original to better fit its target audience, but this movie just tried waaaaaay too hard to be dark and gritty while giving nothing of substance. But it is hilarious. And at least it’s got William Defoe.
Hi! I got an anonymous ask asking to share photos of my bullet journal set up! I tried about 5 times to get pictures that were in the same spot and the same lighting but damn it is difficult. I ended up shooting these going page by page so hopefully that is okay! I’ll list the pages I included since I missed a couple out because they’re just headers at the moment and I’ll put in brackets ones that I’ll add when my semester starts:
blog post ideas (this blog and my main @styleselection #shamelessselfpromo)
movies/tv shows to watch
books to read
expenses (more like ‘treat yo self items’)
january overview/month breakdown
weekly spread (monday 01 jan-today)
(semester timetable - my classes, teachers, lecture + tutorial times)
(assignment date checklist)
At the back of the bullet journal, I have lined paper for note-taking or jotting random things down. I love having space to write important information so that will be useful. Plus I have to specifically get my English relatives to ship me the grid paper so I don’t want to waste it for random notes! At the very end I’ve got to-do list pages where I can note down things for assignments or for over the weekend. Also the little grey thing in the left corner of the second photo, it a task pad which slots into the discs and just gives you another space for writing down bits and bobs when you need to be quick!
Hope this is useful. I’m happy to do a more in-depth post or a review of the notebook system, if anyone is interested. Just let know in a message or reply! x
“Every gal and fella always say the same ole shtick; that I’m some poor unfortunate soul that wound up bein’ the devil’s plaything. That I’m just misunderstood, I’m clearly sufferin’ workin’ as a pawn and makin’ people’s lives’ hell. But here’s the stone hard truth, I enjoy what I do. I like watchin’ people bet their lives away, and I have a kick makin’ sure they pay their dues at any cost. There ain’t a special reason for it either, it’s just good ole’ fun to this king. So ta answer your question, pally, I like working with the Devil cause he’s the only person who’s ever seen and accepted me as the monster that I am. The monster I enjoy being.”
what if in the next lost legacy game we see nadine & chloe going over plans together and nadine scoffs and says “i don’t like it”. then chloe replies with a “i’ve heard this before, and my answer is still the same. you don’t like anything” and then nadine pauses and is just like………..
as most of you know, I was in the hospital this month. why? my heart. again. always. two cardiac arrests within a fifteen minute span as I was getting ready for work; an ambulance came and got me and everything. after that, it was two weeks of tests and surgery and new medications and short-term disability and ultimately, no answers. my heart condition remains a rare and mysterious jewel. so good news: I’m alive. bad news: I’m an american who just spent two weeks in the best electrocardiology ward in new york city. which means medical bills. so many fucking medical bills.
now, I have insurance, but before it kicks in I have a significant deductible to meet. every scrap of every paycheck is going towards those bills for the foreseeable future. which isn’t great, considering I took two-thirds of my closet off to a consignment store about a month before this happened. You guys know me, I’d like to be able to fill it out again. so I’m proposing a trade: I’ll dress you if you dress me.
style consulting - rates and services
$15 option - one time occasion styling! if you have a wedding or a graduation or a big date coming up, I’ll hop on skype with you for a half-hour and see what we can do with the clothes you already have.
$20 option - fashion guidance. I’ll ask you to send me five to seven pictures of outfits, styles, or fashion icons that you like. from there, I’ll write up my impressions of your fashion goals, advise you towards certain trends, and help you solidify your sense of personal style. (here is an example)
$40 option - fashion guidance + personal shopper. You’ll receive all the services of #1, plus I’ll discuss your budget and then go shopping for you. I’ll put together ten items within your price range that will help you meet your style aspirations.
$65 option - fashion guidance + personal shopper + skype consult. You’ll receive all the services of #1 and #2, plus I will set up a 45 minute in-person skype consult with you. We’ll go through your closet (or whatever items you choose) together, and I’ll help you pinpoint which garments will work with your new look, and which ones won’t.
**request via an ask - include your email address, your name, and which service you want - I’ll send you an email and we can begin the conversation there.**
(note: all these prices are suggested. obviously if you’re willing to donate more, I’d appreciate it, each option takes about an hour and a half more to do than the option preceding it. if you want something different than what I’m offering, send me a message and we’ll talk details.)
(second note: I’ll be doing these requests in the order I get them. When I get your inquiry, I’ll let you know where you are in the queue.)
I’ll still be giving out style advice all the time on this blog, don’t worry! But in-depth, individually tailored stuff takes me a lot of time, and I’d like to be able to turn that into something I can use to buy shoes that won’t fall apart with nyc wear.
Iyami is so bitter in this song. He just wants someone to love him ;_; Is anyone willing to give him that love?
I happened to look at the puyasubs spanish release of this episode and I discovered…that the spanish version of Episode 5’s release had the Iyami Ondo ED SUBBED!!!! So I translated it to English. But’s not all I did, I did a lot of retiming with the lyrics to match the japanese lines, typesetting, and a lot of additional edits to make the translation more accurate with my almost non existant japanese skills. Translation notes below.
Boring Translation notes to read if you’re interested!
Changed “Me quedo en la habitación masturbándome.” –> The loud “rolling sound” in the room is, Faaapity, fap (El ruidoso “sonido de rodadura” en la habitación es, Paaaja, paja)
This was a little tricky.
According to this blogpost:https://atsushiyoshidausa(dot)wordpress(dot)com/2013/09/22/acting-goro-goro-joy-of-learning-japanese-2/
Gorogoro (ごろごろ) is an onomatopoeic word that can have multiple meanings. It’s most obvious meaning should be a sound a rolling object makes since Osomatsu and Iyami make the rolling movements with their hands. If you want to imagine what rolling objects make a “Gorogoro sound”, think bowling ball, watermelon, boulder. etc.
THAT’S how loud their fappy sound is!!!!
2nd biggest change I made was change “Cuerpos esbeltos/No puedo parar de mirarlos.” –> Nonchalantly(Despreocupado.)/Look at their revealing bodies(Mira sus cuerpos reveladores). I found this was more accurate after looking at the japanese lines.
Prompt: You come home on day, to find a note your brother and mom left you in Destiny’s care. So you run to the one person you trusted, Roman.
“I’m sorry your brother was in trouble and we had to leave. I know how much you loved it here, and you deserve better than a life more that a life of running. You deserve a shot at a normal life. Ive talked to Destiny and she will watch over you, ill call you when were safe. I love you baby, its better this way. -Mom”
Her note took the breath from your lungs. The house was ruined and even the cat was gone. They took that damn cat and left you here!
Your eyes began to burn as you screamed grabbing the closest thing, which happened to be a family photo and smashed it into the wall. Your body shook as you kicked, threw and broke everything you could get your hands on. They actually wanted you to stay with Destiny? She wasn’t exactly the greatest role model using her gifts for sex and money, claiming to heal people.
You ran out of the house grabbing your bike, the note snatched in your hand. You began to head to the one person you could talk to and would understand you.
Tears burned your eyes, before you used your sweatshirt to wipe them away. You stood on the front porch nervous, your hands shook above the doorbell. You took a deep breath and hit the button.
You heard footsteps and a familiar face looked slightly down on you confused.
“Y/N what are you doing here? I thought you guys left? Where’s Peter?” His eyes looked around the area but turned back to you.
Holding out the note tears began to flow faster down your cheeks. Roman snatched the note, reading swiftly he finished and looked up into your eyes.
“What the fuck……” he whispered and grabbed your shoulders pulling you into his arms.
You sobbed into his chest as he pulled back and led you to the living room, he sat down beside you on the couch.
“Do you want some tea? Or bourbon and shit?” He said quietly.
You sniffed giving off a smirk “I dont even think shit would taste good with bourbon.”
Roman gave a light smile “Yeah me neither.” He pulled you to his chest, letting you cry until your eyes hurt.
Picking you up he carried you upstairs and into a room, he set your down on something soft which you guessed was his bed.
He took your shoes off, still in silence and set them on the floor. “I’ll figure this out just rest now Y/N.”
He stood by you grabbed his arm “Please stay……at least until i fall asleep.”
He stared down at you for a moment, then he slipped off his belt and nodded. Moving over he laid beside you. You turned putting your head on his chest, he seemed to tense up and the closeness of you. He could feel the blood pumping through your veins and his fangs scraped his tongue. He bit down on his tongue trying to suppress the urge to feed on you.
You seemed to remember moving away suddenly “Sorry i guess i forgot.”
“Your the only person who would run to an Upir, and forget what they are.” He chuckled
You shrugged turning onto your side, you hid the tears that began to start again “Well my brother is a werewolf.”
Roman seemed to sense your change in emotion, he pulled you into his chest “It’s okay, i know…”
You nodded wiping your eyes, and slowly let the emotional exhaustion take over.
You woke up to find Roman had left, hearing the shower running you stood up slowly. Romans clothes were on the ground as steam crept from under the bathroom door. Walking over you knocked on the door “Ro!”
“Yeah?” Came Roman’s voice muffled by the door
“I’m gonna go get food if that okay? You want anything?” You asked shifting your weight slightly from one side to the other.
“I’ll be down in a sec!” He replied
Nodding you turned and made your way downstairs, you had been here loads of times when either you or your brother found yourselves in trouble. Usually you talked to Shelley but since her disappearance you swayed closer to Roman. Peter had began to notice and always scolded you about how much of a man-whore Roman had been. But since you two had started to hangout the less he seemed to be interested in other girls, only on days when you two were fighting did he have the occasional hook up. It bothered you at first but learning his true nature you realized for him, it was more of an impulse and how he had been raised by his mother Olivia.
Finding some of your favorite cereal you and Shelly shared in secret, keeping it hidden behind the boxes of oatmeal and forgotten cans of soup. Olivia hated when he children ate such unhealthy processed and sugary meals. Most of the time, when she was gone was the only time the kids could eat what they wanted.
You poured in the cereal and milk into the bowl, hopping on the counter. Taking a bite as Roman came down in his boxers, his hair still wet as light amounts of steam seemed to rise from his body leftover from the shower.
Roman began making coffee, leaning back to examine you as you ate your breakfast. “You can stay here if you want? It pretty much empty and I know you don’t wanna stay with Destiny. Shelleys room is empty, shit over half the house is take whatever room you want.”
You nodded “Thanks Ro…..I was so wrapped up in myself, I never asked how you were. So….How are you?”
He shrugged taking sip of his coffee walking over to you and snatching your bowl taking a bite of cereal. “I’m okay I guess, I mean your parents are kinda shitty and siblings are gone. Everyone wants me to take over Godfrey Enterprises, and I’m trying to control myself from feeding 24/7.”
“I can help if you want?” You asked
Roman paused as you moved your head to the side, brushing away your hair to reveal your soft skin.
Roman reached out gently brushing his hand on your neck causing shivers to run down your spine. He could feel the beating of your heart on the pads of his fingers, the way your chest rose and fell with your breathing.
He leaned in intoxicated by your scent as he felt his fangs on his tongue again. Your heart beat faster at his proximity………………… he could hear it, but the only thing on his mind was how you would look covered in your own blood. How your scent would only light the flames of his desire and soon it would not be just your blood he craved, He would crave your body. Needing to the burning of your lips on his. He would ravish himself in your body, pleading for you to moan his name begging you to reach your climax as he thrust into you over and over again. He closed his eyes before shaking his head “I can’t, I won’t be able to control myself if I do.”
You nodded the breath that caught in your lung seemed to slowly release “Okay.”
Roman handed you your cereal “ You can shower if you want? The waters still hot in my bathroom. It’ll need to warm up everywhere else.”
You were about to head upstairs, when you paused “I left my clothes at the house…..”
Roman nodded “Ill have someone pick them up, you can wear some of my clothes if you want. I let you borrow Olivia’s but your already beautiful plus I dont want you going around looking slutty.”
You gave a light smile trying to hide your confusion “…….Thanks.”
Going up the stairs, you cracked the door wanting to let the steam escape and make it hard to breathe when you got out. You sighed as you went into the bathroom. You had always though Olivia dressed more intimidating and classy but it seemed Roman did like that, despite the fact that Olivia was still his mother. You turned on the water and began to peel off your clothes, stepping out of your jeans you slowly slid down your panties. Unclasping your bra you tossed it to the side and let the hot water cascade down your back.
Closing your eyes you felt your muscles begin to relax. You looked over grabbing the shampoo that smelled of pine…….it smelled like Roman. lathering your hair and rising off you used the conditioner massaging your scalp. You thought of your brother.
It was rare for a girl in the family to have the wolf gene, but when your brother turned your life began to change. You had to leave every school you had been to if someone spotted your brother, even sooner if he began to kill more than the occasional deer. You could never have many friends, your mother didn’t want you to get close to many people in case you had to leave. It had become a routine never lasting more then a few months. You would finally have the courage to talk to someone, to try and make friends before your mother whisked you away to the next town. Peter teased you sometimes about being socially outcast but the truth was you didn’t want get attached. After a while Peter was used to it but you weren’t.
Coming back to reality you noticed the water beginning to chill slightly. You quickly washed you body and rinsed the conditioner out of your hair.
Stepping out of the shower you grabbed a towel looking up you jumped to see Roman at the door.
Towel still in your hands you froze as your gaze met Roman’s. His breathing hitched in his throat as he looked down clearing his throat. He turned around “Sorry you shut off the water…I just wanted to give you these.”
You looked down to his hands and saw he had a clean t-shirt and a pair of sweatpants. You wrapped the towel around your body and stepped forward. Placing your hand gently on his he passed you the clothes.
“Thank you Roman.” You said quietly your heart pounding in your chest.
Roman slowly turned around and you could see he was biting his lip. His eyes were glued to your neck. His face turned from one of embarrassment into hunger and lust. You felt yourself freeze like a deer in headlights.
“Roman?” You whispered as his mouth began to open and you saw his sharp canines begin to draw closer to his bottom teeth as he growled.
From Instagram: People often ask me if I keep the letters and notes people give me at signings. I do! – I was just unpacking and found boxes full of notes like this. I wanted to tell you guys I love you and thank you so much for sharing such important pieces of yourself with me.
This year my little sister is starting high school (year 7 in Australia). To help her out I decided to write a quick post with the advice I wish I’d been given when I was her age. I hope that it will make her transition easier, and hope that it will do the same for other students starting year 7. I don’t feel like writing a rambly intro today, so let’s get right into it:
Advice On School Supplies
There are some items on an average school-issued supplies list that will probably never be used, and other items not on the list that can be useful to have. These are some items I’ve found to be useful (and not so useful) over my four years at high school.
Good gel or fine liner pens: Most school lists tell you to get the most basic supermarket ballpoint pens available. In my experience, these just don’t cut it for the amount of writing you need to do in high school. My suggestion? A gel pen or fine liner with small nib and heavy ink flow. A grip can add extra comfort, but personally, I don’t find one necessary. Brand wise, I love Muji 0.35/0.5 gels, Staedtler Triplus fine liners, and Arline 400 fine liners.
Plastic document folders: These are so, so useful! Last year I had one of these for each subject (a different colour for each!) and used them to store a notebook and any handouts that I needed for the class. They protected my papers from damage and also helped me stay organised by keeping everything from the subject in one spot and letting me just grab one folder before class rather than multiple items.
White out tape: So much better than the liquid stuff. For one it doesn’t require drying time, and it also doesn’t run the risk of bursting and ruining your pencil case/school bag/notebook/uniform/etc.
Not Useful (GO WITHOUT):
Binders: These are so clunky! If you have one per subject then they take up too much space in your bag, and if you have one for everything then you have to carry all your materials to every class. Unless you just keep loose leaf paper in a slim binder (rather than notebooks), then I suggest using plastic folders instead.
Binder books: Just get normal notebooks. As mentioned above, binders are clunky and unnecessary. I find it better to use non-punched books, as they don’t have holes that get in the way of your writing. Or alternatively, just fill a slim binder with loose leaf and use that instead of multiple notebooks.
Advice On Class Schedules
One of the things I struggled with most when starting high school was remembering what class I had when and what room I needed to be in. The best way to stay on top of your schedule is to write it down. However I suggest using a digital program rather than pen and paper - your schedule is likely enough to change that you want to be able to make adjustments easily. You can write it in a word processing program, but I find it most useful to use an app. With a program such as iStudiez or My Study Life on your phone/tablet, you can easily schedule your classes and also add in homework due dates. Download one of these (or a similar program), and you won’t have any problems managing your timetable.
Advice On Staying Organised
The single most useful organisational tool I’ve found in four years of searching is a program called Trello. Available as both a desktop site and a mobile app, Trello has been a saviour when it comes to staying on top of tasks. The best thing about it, and what stands it apart from other organisational tools, is its great user interface. Trello, like many other programs, allows you to set lists of tasks to be completed. Like other programs, it allows you to categorise tasks and add sub-tasks. What makes it different from other programs is the way it allows you to organise and prioritise tasks. It has a simple drag and drop interface which lets you move tasks between lists with ease, and you can do the same to re-order tasks within a single list. This is super useful when it comes to sorting tasks by priority or setting up a running-order of tasks for the day. If you want to know exactly how I use Trello, just shoot me and ask and we can set up a screenshare to explain.
Advice On Taking Notes
The best advice I can give you on taking notes is just to make sure you keep them detailed and up-to-date. A good, complete set of notes is so useful when it comes to studying for tests, and you really don’t want to leave note-taking to right before one. At year 7-9 level I found taking notes in class and from class slideshows to be adequate, but in year 10 it became important to take notes from textbooks too. This will vary school-to-school, but you can use these year levels as loose guidelines.
Advice On Studying
Spread. It. Out. I’m serious. You’re tempted to procrastinate? You’re tempted to study in one big block the weekend before the test? Don’t. Please. Trust me when I say it’s not nice to spend six hours in a day studying for the one test. Instead, study in short bursts, but study regularly. For a 7th-10th grader, I think it’s enough if your regular study regime is to simply summarise your notes at the end of each week, make flashcards, and give them a once-over study. When it comes near test time, you’ll only need a short study session to prepare. In this session I suggest you do the following:
Chuck the flashcards you know you’ve already memorised. Study the rest until they stick (<30 minutes).
Do a practice test or some practice exercises (I suggest Khan Academy for maths practice), focusing on the skills/question types you have the most trouble with (~1 hour).
Get together with some friends and use Kahoot to have a competitive, time-restricted quiz on the test content. You can find a pre-made quiz, or create your own for more focused study. For me, this is a really fun way to study and also the best way to make information stick long-term (~30 minutes).
Spread these activities out over the week before the test, and you are way less likely to feel overloaded than if you leave everything to the last minute.
Advice On Homework
Repeat after me: Do it before you have to. As much as it’s tempting to procrastinate, you’ll feel much less stressed if you don’t leave work to the last minute. Rather than completing only what you have to on any given day, I suggest you work until one of the following occurs:
You run out of set work to do.
It becomes too late to study (please stop studying at least an hour before bed and spend some time giving yourself a little TLC instead).
You become too tired out and feel you can’t work productively anymore (if you don’t have anything left due tomorrow then leave the work to another day, but if you still need to complete things then take a break or nap before getting back to it).
Advice On Time Management
In lower high school, you’ll probably find that it is unnecessary to strictly manage your time, as long as you don’t waste it. By this I mean you will rarely feel you don’t have time to complete required work, as long as you don’t waste your time on pseudo-productive tasks like creating ultra-pretty presentations or copying your notes out. Just stick to the tasks that are actually required of you.
Advice On Making Friends
JOIN CLUBS! Clubs are a great way to have fun, get involved, and also meet people with the same interests as you. They provide a semi-structured environment in which to initiate conversation, rather than you having to randomly approach new people (which, if you are like me, is SCARY!), and also keep you meeting with your new pals on a regular basis. Once you getting chatting with someone you like, just invite them to sit with you at lunch and you’re off to a great start.

Peter Parker and (Y/N). Two nerds, best friends, crushing on each other and too oblivious to notice.
You had a Spanish exam the next day and you planned on hanging out on your house with Peter. You knew Peter’s little secret and you insisted him to come hang out with you instead of some bad guys that tried to kill him. You never could see him hurt, you couldn’t live with that in your conscience, that you could do something to help him.
Peter: (Y/N). (Y/N): what Peter: Sorry, but I can’t go to your place tomorrow… :( please forgive me. (Y/N): you’re going to try and flirt with some cute girls with your suit, huh? go on, i forgive you dude. i’m your wingwoman ;) Peter: What? no… Peter: Anyways thank you! You’re the best! We’ll hang out some other day, okay? :) (Y/N): yeah, yeah. also please call me when you’re at the cafeteria, please i have no clue how to get there.
You lock your phone and stuck it in your pocket again, waiting impatiently for the class to end. After the bell rang, you were heading to the school’s Cafeteria. You were trying to guess where it was since it was pretty far from your classrom. Walking through several hallways and not finding anything, your eyes met with a cute boy, standing against the wall, looking through his phone and with his earbuds on and bopping his head up and down at the beat of the music.
No one can convince me that Scanlan didn’t let Pike be the first one to read his very first draft of In the Belly of Dragons.
Pike just grabs a pen and some ink and starts scribbling notes in the margins while reading, just to make him nervous. Scanlan begins to doubt whether it’s any good.
When Pike finishes, she gives him back the book with a wink. When he reads the notes they’re all super encouraging; “Good job!” and “This passage is wonderful!” and “I just wanted to let you know you’re looking very handsome today.”
You can leave a comment, like, reblog. I will be choosing a winner from the notes, so more notes improves your chances of winning.
Rules of the Giveaway:
1. You MUST be willing to provide me a shipping/mailing address. I cannot give you these items if you don’t give me an address to actually send them to. You’d be surprised how many people decline to do this
2. You MUST ONLY add to the notes if you WANT the contents of the giveaway
3. Don’t be a dick
that’s it that’s the rules
I’m going to leave this up for 1 week so the giveaway will close on 3/9/2017 (Is it Thursday yet?)
Sugar, I’m Goin’ Down// Bad Boy Shawn // Chapter One
(*shows up two weeks late with Starbucks* anyways here’s college!badboy!shawn and yes, it’s going to be a fic because I can’t control myself and yes, the title is from the fallout boy song.)
The library is quiet, it’s after 8pm after all and you open up your folder with your notes to get started on an outline for an assignment for your mythology class. You’re about ten minutes in, just getting into the flow of it, really feeling your notes start to come together and you hear him. That loud, open mouthed, head thrown back, laughing jackal of a human being that you shared three classes with. Fucking Shawn.
Lord only know what he’s laughing at but it’s probably something his stupid ass friend Andrew has said or done. You wish he would just shut up because now you can hear him /talking/ and you’re just not in the mood to listen to him. Wasn’t it enough you had to listen to him chit chat with every girl who asked him about his stupid fucking black denim jacket with the stupid logo on the back that nobody cared about? Or maybe the way you had to share a worktable with him on the days showed up late because you were the only one without a table partner. He would always forget a pen, always fuck with the instruments on the table, ask stupid questions, and text while the professor was teaching. He was the absolute worst.
“Ha, yeah, anyways I told her to fuck off if she thought I was gonna-” Shawn stops mid sentence and you dare to look up, shocked by his silence, curious to know what caused it. Unfortunately when you do look up, he’s standing right there at the end of your table that’s tucked into the back corner of the library.

Warning: ⚠️ this might be triggering for some people ⚠️
He was cleaning up your room, wanting to do something nice for you. You were at work, trying to earn the money you deserved.
While sweeping under your bed, he found a box. Letting his curiosity get to him, he sat down on the floor, opening the box.
The first thing he saw was pictures. Some of him, some of your friends, some of your family. At the bottom of the box, there was an envelope. He picked it up and opened it, revealing a note that had your handwriting on it.
A suicide note.
After he read the letter, his eyes would widen. The first thing he would do is call you. “Namjoon, I’m at work, what do you want?” You asked him. “Why is there a suicide note under your bed?” He asks. “Are you planning to use it?”
You sighed. “It’s old, Namjoon. I never threw it away.”
Hearing that, we would be kind of relieved, but also kind of upset. “If you ever want to do something bad to yourself, please don’t. If you have bad thoughts, just come talk to me. You know I’ll always listen to you.”
As Jin read the letter, several thoughts were going through his head. When did you write it? Was this note recent?
He called you immediately. When he heard you pick up the phone, he didn’t give you any chance to speak first. “A suicide note, y/n? Are you planning on leaving me? I won’t let you do that. I won’t. Where are you? I’m coming to get you.” Jin explains.
“Jin, I’m at work.” You tell him. “That note is old. I promise, I’m not planning to do anything bad. I just forgot to throw it away.”
“Oh, okay. Have fun at work, but we’re going to talk about this when you get home.”
Yoongi read the whole note, almost immediately understanding your feelings. But that didn’t mean that he was okay with you doing something like this.
He called your phone, wanting an explanation. You told him that it was old, and he just said, “okay,” but when you got home that night, Yoongi had a long talk with you.
“Y/n, I promise that life is worth living. So many people care about you. Your family, your friends. Me. We all care about you. I know how you feel, I really do, but suicide is never the answer. If you ever feel depressed or anything, you know you can talk to me, right?”
By the end of the note, Hoseok would be crying. He never knew that you were so stressed and depressed. He had no idea if this note was recent or not, but it still made him sad.
He called you, crying. “Hobi, why are you crying? Are you okay?” You asked him. “No. Are you okay?” He asks. You were confused, but after he explained what he found, you understood. You told him that it was old, but that didn’t stop him from speaking about it when you got home.
Like Yoongi, he would give you a long lecture. “Suicide is never the answer, y/n. And I’m not just saying this because you’re my girlfriend. I would say this to everyone in the world if I could. Suicide isn’t going to solve all the problems in your life, it just makes life harder for other people. The people who care about you. Please don’t ever scare me with a letter like this ever again.”
“Hobi, I wrote that letter two years ago.”
“I don’t care. It still made me sad that you were thinking like that.”
As soon as he finished reading the letter, Jimin called your phone, afraid that you had lied to him when you said that you were going to work. Since he read the letter, he thought that you were going to do something else.
When you answered the phone, Jimin felt kind of relieved. “Y/n, please tell me you’re not doing anything stupid.” He says. “Well, my job is pretty boring but I wouldn’t call it stupid.” You answered. Jimin explained to you that he had found the letter and you just sighed.
“Remind me to throw that stupid thing away when I get home. It’s so old. I don’t know why I kept it.” You tell him. “I’ll throw it away myself. I’m glad you haven’t done anything stupid to yourself. I love you, y/n.”
Reading the letter, Taehyung would be upset. He would immediately call you, wanting to know why in the world you would ever do something like this. “Y/n y/l/n, you’re going to have to fight me when you get home.” He says into the phone. “Why?” You asked, confused.
“I found a suicide letter under your bed. A suicide letter? Really, y/n? I’m sorry, but you’re not getting away from me that easily.” He explains.
“Oh, that stupid letter. Tae, that thing is old. I forgot to throw it away. I promise I’m not doing anything like that.” You explained to him. “You better not be. I never knew you used to be so stressed and sad. I’m so sorry. Please talk to me if you ever feel like that again.”
After reading the letter, Jungkook would just sit there for a few minutes, not believing what he just read. Were you really planning to hurt yourself? When Jungkook finally got a grip, he grabbed his phone and called you. When you answered the phone, he spoke immediately. “Why did you write a suicide note? Y/n, please don’t tell me you’re going to do that. Please don’t. Please.” He begged you.
“Jungkook, what are you talking about?”
“There was a suicide note in the box under your bed. I read it and—” You didn’t give him time to finish his sentence. “Please throw that away. It’s old. I’m not doing anything like that, I promise. Please, just throw it away. Burn it or something.” You tell him.
Jungkook sighed a sigh of relief. “I love you, really. You know that?”
