I know all you did was reblog that Jon thing and seem confused as well, but why is everyone attacking him and shit? He agreed to an interview. That literally doesn't mean shit. If I let a neo-nazi CALMLY SIT DOWN AND ASK ME QUESTIONS, how does that in any way indicate a single thing about my opinions. Did anyone even read the actual article? Jon said nothing bad, unless someone is defining "bad" as simply a normal opinion that they don't agree with, which is exactly what Jon is criticizing.
I didn’t read it because I was at work on my break when I reblogged it. I don’t know personally it doesn’t sit well with me and that’s speaking as someone who isn’t even all that interested in jon. I honestly don’t know much about the situation and would love someone to break it down more for me.
As I walked underneath the purple and white lights; sipping my hot chocolate, thoughts of my life crossed my mind. I would be 24 in two days; one more year until I would be half of 50. I kept thinking about how much further in life I would be if I did not have to begin this journey. Perhaps I would have done better in High School, met the love of my life, finished my degree in college, traveled, gotten married or had a child. Who knows where my life would be if only this journey did not have to be taken. As these thoughts ran through my head, the tears ran faster. A part of me wonders if somewhere on this journey I lost who I was. I thought about the memories I had as my former self, and though I know that life was lived, at times it feels like it didn’t. It feels like I am just beginning my life at the age of 24, and where others have far surpassed me I am just starting. It feels as if I was thrown into this life without any preparation, stepping on stones figuring it out on my own. Yet, though I am not where I want to be, I have gained things that I cherish more than words can describe. I thought I would never find love, yet I have, I thought I would never be as far in my transition as I am today, yet I am. Though my life is just truly beginning at the age of 24, I cherish these moments. I am another year older, another year wiser, another year stronger, another year…happier. I will transcend. Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes. It means so much to me, and even more so means a lot that I was able to spend these past few days with my amazing boyfriend.
Seungri is my ult bias. I love him and I do agree that the ot4 teasing can really hurt him and his career. But at the same time, I can understand why the others can be rather frustrated with him. I remember how they mentioned in Japan how Seungri only tries to be talkative and friendly with other people, but since he's known them for 10 years, he's just silent and always leaves early when he eats with them. He's seems like the kind of friend who stops trying after he gets "comfortable" with you.
I honestly feel like he would become a lot more popular if he just stopped thinking so much about fangirls, popularity, and fanservice (even though i love the fanservice) and start focussing on just the music, his singing, and his dancing.
While it is indeed true that the hyungs complained about Seungri constantly disappearing, did you think about the reason why he is doing that? Of course I don’t know the reasons for sure since I know no one of them in person and I have no idea what they are doing, talking about etc. But the fact that OT4 is constantly making those OT4 jokes, constantly excluding Seungri, teasing him, bullying him … well, if I had to experience those things again and again, on stage while thousands of people are witnessing it, I would not spend a lot of time with them either and prefer to spend time with people that are nice to me. Seungri pretends to be self confident and strong but let’s be honest, this shit can’t leave you unhurt after 10 years. I have no doubts that the hyungs love him and he loves them back but I can totally understand why he is not that talkative around them.
And to the last part. I don’t think he can just stop worrying about popularity since the showbiz is only about popularity. The one that is popular, the one people want to see, want to hear and read about, they will be successful, they will earn lots of money. Also, Seungri is in this business for 10 years now. He worked as much or even more than his hyungs. He got kicked out, he got back in, he improved so extremely much over the past 10 years. He gave us his all because we are his everything. And yet, all the attention goes to who?
Imagine you were him. You practiced dancing and singing to the point you would faint, you left your home, family and friends at a young age to chase after your dream, you starve, you sacrifice sleep and finally, you can stand on stage. You know that you need to improve so you practice even more, even harder, you get better and better. You start composing, you are a genius and put together an album in only 3 weeks. You study languages after languages, Japanese, English, Chinese and even more just to be able to communicate and interact with people all around the world. You pretend to be self confident all the time, you make jokes, you liven up everything since you know that the others are not as entertaining as you (no offense to the other members).
And yet, it is always the others that get preferred. You feel not loved. All those efforts, all those attempts to prove everyone that you are indeed someone, someone handsome, talented, amazing and someone that deserves to get loved, to be popular … for nothing.
So what is left to him? He can only tell jokes, he can only do fanservice. Since his is what he maknae is supposed to do. The maknae is cute, is supposed to do aegyo and idk what else. While the others are the talented ones, he has to be the goofy and cute one to get attention.
He just can’t stop worrying about popularity since he fought for it and is still fighting.
He just can’t stop doing fanservice because if he did then he would disappear in the shadows of his hyungs.
Can someone please confirm my suspicions….. after reading Rhions epilogue *spoiler*…… they get it on.
What I wanted to confirm is whether Rhion is a Virgin.
My reasons are that he talks about how no one sees his real face and bare skin, he says the above and practically locked himself away for all his life. The only way he would is either a) doing in the costume which I can’t picture him doing because of his nature b) at uni but we all know he locked himself away all that time.
I love this precious cinnamon role even more if it is true but I wanted to see if I was the only one. Considering how he was in his past and around people it would make sense that mc is his first girlfriend. ♤♡◇♧
you know what i really love thinking about? what kind of pokemon games and just pokemon stuff in general a character would like
hau would learn more towards the side games but loves all pokemon games. he probably needs at least 2 tissue boxes when playing pmd. takes 3+ hours deciding on his team because there’s too many good pokemon. spends too much time in amie/refresh, also gets sidetracked doing extra things.
probably has 50 extra hours clocked in because of that. i bet he loves making poffins. just wants to have a fun time in general
gladion would enjoy games that are more battle orientated; i can see him liking pokemon rumble a lot!! would probably try to get into (serious) competitive battling and quit in one day. is a sore loser whenever he loses though. honestly….i wouldn’t be surprised if he nicknamed his pokemon…. like hau, would also spend too much time in amie/refresh. probably secretly likes art academy, and is pretty good at it.
lillie would def be a side game person. I could also see her enjoying pokemon pinball and the ranger games. Once hau & sm protag would do enough convincing she would eventually hop onto the main games, but she prefers the ones that are story driven (so bw & sm, dppt). tries to complete the pokedex because she enjoys reading the entries. loves pokemon lore
Dude sometimes I think about X2.5 and WILL and I just.Groan for about five years. Why would they do that to us?Do they not know the shit we went through to get the sunshine ball man back?Why did they blow him up?why is chuami obsessed with lulus boob
YeAH. There are things about the audio drama, and, yes, even the novel that I actually really like and see great potential in. But the bad things are just so egregiously bad that I have 0 faith in Square Enix with the ffx franchise any more. I love the world of Spira and the characters so, so much and I want to see their stories continued as much as anyone. But if Square continues on the path they’ve been going with it, I don’t think they’d do it or them any justice…. :(
My biggest beef with the novel and audio drama is honestly, just plain lazy, unimaginative writing. Like, I do like the concept of an unstable Farplane, but… Sin is back? That’s the the best conflict you can think of for a whole new story?? Tidus is dead again, when we literally just resurrected him mere hours before he explodes again??? All of the relationship drama and angst they want to create with that– they literally already have the foundation to do it?? Idk, there’s a lot more but I’d spend all day writing out my complaints. No offense to ffx/v and I have not played it yet so I’m not making an official judgement until I do, but general reviews and opinions seem to be confirming what I feared it would be: awesome gameplay, mediocre story/plot. I don’t like how that bodes for future Final Fantasy titles…. unless they listen to the critique they’re getting about their recent writing.
My point being… frankly, I don’t trust Square Enix with Final Fantasy X’s story. They haven’t given us any reason to believe they care about it anymore, except as a cash cow. I really hope they don’t follow through on this X-3 rumor. I want to be optimistic about it, but how can I be when they clearly have no reverence or passion for the project, as evidenced by the hackjob they did with the epilogue as it is now?
Hey, I saw your post about making Character Weeks for the Vorkosigan Saga, and you're one of the few Vorkosigan blogs I've found. I just made a prompt maker that gives you two characters and a one word prompt. Would you or anyone else be interested in a link to it?
I just wanna say that as of now I won’t be discussing the Jaebum situation any more on my blog and or in my asks. Iam worn out on the subject it consumed my whole day yesterday and was all I talked about I know some ppl aren’t ready to move on and that’s okay but I would like to and I hope y'all can understand that I love you all with all my heart but for myself I gotta Ive said all I can say on the matter and I’m ready to move onto more positive and optimistic things now on here💚
LOOK, I DON’T CARE THAT IT’S A LEGENDARY, I LOVE SUICUNE OK? Suicune is so beautiful and Pokémon Crystal version was such an important game to me. I finally got to play as a girl trainer, and I got to find this majestic Aurora Borealis beast, and then I had deal with some dude name Eusine, and, and, and- I just love Suicune, OK?
Second Fave: Primarina
Did you guys know that I love mermaids? And long flowing hair? And that I’m incredibly vain? If it wasn’t for my intense love of Rowlet, I probably would have gone with Popplio for my starter. However, I recently had the good fortune of being traded a shiny Popplio, and I just evolved her into a Primarina last night. I’m very excited about using her more in battle, and I can’t wait to see all that this mermaid diva has to offer.
All hail helix. Ok, memes aside, I am a sucker for nautiluses and Omanyte is just really cute to me. Look at it’s big trusting eyes and its stubby little tentacles. It’s a precious little fossil, and my pick for cutest water type. (Runner ups: Squirtle, poliwag, horsea, totodile, wailord, pyukumuku. There are a lot of cute water types, wtf)
So I’m definitely 7 days behind already, but I’ve been really wanting to do that Christmas Card thing this year! I get paid friday so I wanna go and buy a bunch of stamps. Basically, what I tried to do a few years ago ( which didn’t work out bc of life issues interrupting ), is send my friends ( YOU ), a Christmas card. Actually 2, one from me and one from Clark to whoever your character is —– but that’s besides the point.
the act of physically creating/writing and giving Christmas cards seems to diminish a little more every year, and I don’t know about you, but I fucking love getting something in my mailbox. Especially around Christmas time :DDD
so if you’re comfortable with that, and would like to receive or even exchange Christmas cards, like this button. If I receive enough interested people, I’ll contact you and we’ll dO THIS.

If you would like to know more about me or are interested in becoming my penpal email me at spencekc @ hotmail. com
adam confirmed killian wont be old, so... still hoping for captain duckling, heh
No, Adam, from what I recalled, worded his reply very carefully, saying ‘the Killian we know and love’ won’t be aged. Apparently the Snowing in the wish!verse were not meant to be once we know and love (or care about one iota) so I think that would apply to Killian as well, only he would be much more entertaining.
And I do take slight issue with being told not to hope for things though since, ya know, hope is the main premise of the show and positivity is basically the flag I live my life under. *g*
king george does the turn off your cellphones announcement right before it starts and he says “enjoy MY show” lmfao
i was already tearing up during alexander hamilton rip
in the beginning laurens and hercules are v loud and usually drunk there are multiple instances of it in aaron burr, sir, the story of tonight, satisfied, and the story of tonight reprise and they always made the audience laugh
in my shot laurens turns to hamilton and says “you and i do or die” more privately and quietly to him alone and then turns back and continues
peggy is actually reluctant in the schuyler sisters and tries to stop angelica before being quite literally dragged across the stage when she sings “and peggy”
when everyone exits in the story of tonight hamilton and laurens leave with their arms around each other :’)
in farmer refuted the squad is standing off to the side listening to samuel seabury and hercules and lafayette nudge and push hamilton forward while giggling to themselves until he finally challenges seabury
during you’ll be back king george jerks his shoulders up and down in time with his da da da das he looked absolutely ridiculous it was so funny
in helpless after hamilton gets eliza’s father’s blessing he looks to eliza and does this ridiculous little celebratory dance but then mr schuyler looks back over at him and he makes a show of composing himself
also in helpless washington was the one who helped hamilton get ready for the wedding and he fixed up his coat it was such a nice moment :’)
yo satisfied literally changed my fucking life ok bc obv renee is SO TALENTED WOW and bc the choreography was so cool man they did actually rewind everything somehow so it was the scene at the beginning of helpless im not entirely sure how they pulled it off tbh
in the story of tonight reprise the squad sways/thrusts their hips crudely while they tease hamilton for getting married it’s so fucking funny
wait for it is life changing. that is all
history has its eyes on you blew me away i love chris so much
yorktown is INSANE so many things are happening at once and the lights go crazy and the ensemble dance breakdown is just incredible
at the end of what comes next king george held out his hands expectantly then huffed and stomped off stage when no one started clapping immediately honestly all of his appearances were 10/10
oh my god dear theodosia was too much for me because it’s just burr and hamilton alone on stage singing tenderly to their newborn children
eliza walks in and delivers the news about laurens’ death (it’s not in the soundtrack) and hamilton’s demeanor changes immediately and after about a minute of grim silence he says “i have so much work to do” and exits and during this entire thing laurens stands off to the side surrounded by blue light and quietly and sadly sings the beginning lines of the story of tonight i damn near started bawling y’all
in non stop burr and hamilton are at a trial and burr gets v exasperated as hamilton delivers the long winded opening statement and after burr says “that’s all you had to say” hamilton looks like he’s going to stop but then in a typical hamilton fashion he darts back to keep talking when he says “one more thing–”
i especially loved nonstop bc the blending of the different character harmonies being sung all at once is phenomenal and outstanding i was completely blown away
in what’d i miss jefferson was encouraging the crowd’s applause and cheers and cupped his hand by his ear and leaned forward to hype the crowd up and it made everyone go even crazier it was so great
after jefferson finishes his argument in cabinet battle #1 he drops the mic and madison’s hand is waiting underneath to catch it lmaooooo
eliza beatboxes during philip’s rap/poem in take a break and philip’s voice breaks really badly so it ended up sounding like “you can write rhymes but you can’t write MINE” and that’s why hamilton says “WHAT”
also hamilton declines the invitation to the schuyler vacation and angelica starts after him to talk some sense into him but eliza stops her and shakes her head and they leave arm in arm they don’t even KNOW
maria wore a red dress with red lipstick in say no to this and i got chills bc jasmine is so talented and i am very gay that’s all i have to say
ok i lied towards the end of say no to this maria to sits on hamilton’s lap and places one of his hands on her stomach and the other on her chest i was vvv side eye emoji
i also got chills during room where it happens and one last time and literally every song ngl i’m trash
jefferson literally sniffs hamilton and makes a disgusted face when he says hamilton “smells like new money” in cabinet battle #2
king george comes back in i know him as the others are exiting and he flinches away in disgust if any of them got close to him it’s hysterical and then he jumps around as he excitedly anticipates being able to see adams crash and burn as president
KING GEORGE ALSO GOT BURR TO BREAK CHARACTER!!! burr laughed as he sang the beginning of the adams administration because george was making exaggerated gestures from where he set up a stool on the end of the stage to watch adams’ disastrous presidency i feel so #blessed
oh my god and then when hamilton calls john adams a “FAT MOTHERF–” in his iconic drag he drops a stack of books off the balcony so the thud censors the rest of it as the red strobe lights flashed it’s so extra i love it
in we know jefferson’s “whaaaaat” is pure giddiness and he rushes over to snatch james reynolds’ letter out of burr’s hands to read for himself he’s such an asshole
hurricane is AWESOME ok it’s one of my faves the lights were dimmed and hamilton is alone on stage singing and then maria gives hamilton the quill i was like bro…… that’s some poetic shit………
lord the reynolds pamphlet was crazy everyone was moving around and making it rain and then king george came down the stairs and smugly pranced across the stage while hamilton is trying to plead with everyone that at least he was honest about the money
burn was so fucking sad and it didn’t help that eliza was on her knees for half of it just lay me to rest y’all
JESUS and then after philip’s death in stay alive reprise eliza wails mournfully as she sobs over his body it’s the saddest thing i’ve ever heard i felt like i was hit by a train
sjdfnskfnksfj nothing will ever prepare you for seeing it’s quiet uptown live it’s a beautifully sad number bc hamilton and eliza are standing center stage while people move in slow motion in dim blue light around them but eliza stares straight ahead while hamilton begs for forgiveness until she finally reaches for his arm and rests her head on his shoulder and says “it’s quiet uptown”
burr actually runs around grinning as he eavesdrops on all the peoples’ views of him and he even fist pumps a bit in the election of 1800
your obedient servant was so funny bc there was only one desk and burr wrote one letter to hamilton and after a dancer delivered it burr and hamilton switched places at the desk and hamilton handed off letter after letter to be delivered to burr and burr just looked so done
god the choreography in the world was wide enough was a++++ because burr fires the gun and a dancer shows the motion of the bullet by acting as if she was holding it and moved it closer to hamilton and then everything slows down as hamilton has his moment of reflection and he actually runs away when he notices how close the bullet is getting at one point but then he finally decides to accept his fate and doesn’t move as the bullet comes rushing towards him when time resumes normal speed
towards the end of who lives, who dies, who tells your story eliza and alexander face each other and hold hands but then hamilton steps back and eliza turns to the audience and at the veeeeery last moment she holds her hands out and gasps and smiles as if she sees him on the ~other side~ after decades of being apart and she’s ready to go be with him forever and then the lights cut to black and it ends i stood up immediately and clapped with goddamn tears in my eyes
TL;DR there are a lot of little quirks in hamilton that make it a wonderful live experience and basically however you imagine the show it’s 100000x better trust me
