Man give me not models or gods les amis. They don’t all have like perfect chiseled jaws and take pictures where they look effortlessly great and are the height of fashion and good looks they’re student revolutionaries.
They don’t sleep, eat horribly, drink too much, and are beyond stressed out and you and I both know it to be true. Straight up list of things the amis have:
- Eye bags, they don’t sleep enough for real
- Acne, all of them, even Enjolras
- Soft chubby faces either because of baby chub or because they are chubby
- stretch marks, literally who does not have these
- Big noses, some of them have been broken
- soft tummies, chubby tummies
- some of them are just thin as a rail and can’t get super muscular or super curvy
- lips that are thin and get dry and cracked
- the inability to grow facial hair, or they grow patchy beards, or wispy mustaches
- not shaving cause it’s a burden or aesthetic choice
- dry skin, rosacea, vitiligo, etc
- really greasy hair, unbelievably dry hair
They’re Human and have flaws and imperfections

let me tell you the story of jacob and peter. i’ve blurred their faces because i have no way to get in contact with them to ask for permission to show their faces, i saw them on the He Will Not Divide Us stream and all i know is their first names. so anyways
this is jacob on the left and peter on the right. jacob was standing alone with his coffee cup when peter came up. peter greeted jacob nicely then started talking about the stream. he asked if the footage went to internet. jacob said yes then explained what the stream was. peter started making bad jokes about trump supporters then said something along the lines of “ya know, this stuff goes all the way to space before you see it anywhere else. isn’t that wild? imagine if aliens saw it.” jacob seemed uncomfortable and just kind of nodded politely while peter kept talking about how radio waves also go into space. then peter nodded, said “i’m gonna get a smoke, nice talking to you.”, and walked away leaving jacob.
jacob stood there for a long time tapping on his coffee cup. he seemed really thoughtful, like he had a lot on his mind. then he started slowly pacing back and forth, tapping on his cup, and every time he got close to the camera he’d almost whisper “he will not divide us.” at this point i was kind of moved and he gave me some hope. it was quiet and solemn, almost peaceful.
but not for long
some guys rolled up in there car and said “he will not divide us!” to jacob while playing presidential music from their car. jacob kind of smiled and bobbed his head while peter walked back up from getting his cigarette and went “ALL THE WAY TO SPACE, BABY!” it’s the most oddly inspiring thing i’ve ever seen.
so, have u educated urself on ur privileged view of the world yet
hey boo! The internet is already too full of negativity, and I do not want to add to it any longer. If you want to come off anon and chat, that’s fine! This is the last anon I will not be responding to on this subject x I hope you will all read this post, and consider what I am saying as a peace offering and a battle cry, because it is somehow a bit of both.
I said some things last night that in looking back, I realize why some of you took them the way you did. I am sorry about that. I am not always the best at putting my thoughts into words. I did not express myself clearly, and I am sorry if that resulted in my making anyone feel as if I was in support of toxic beliefs, or saying that we should just let oppression and injustice slide. That is the very last thing I want to be taken away from my existence, because I do not believe it for one second. My intention was not to show support for any negative ideologies or people that hold them. My point was, and is (and hopefully I can express it better this time), that instead of filling the internet with messages of hate, I would like to see more messages of positivity and hope and action. I want this little community on the internet to prove everyone that has oppressed any one they’re wrong. Show them that you are the bigger person, and that you can defend yourself and your ideas without resorting to name calling. Because I don’t know about you, but when if I was called a name or told by a stranger that they hate me my first response would be to shut down. To not listen to one more word that person is saying. And our message is too important to be shut down right out off the bat. Our message is one that needs to be heard. So I believe that if we want to have any hope of changing anyone’s minds, the answer is to stand up for our beliefs, but do it without any name calling or attacks. I am not saying not to stand up for your beliefs, because we have to stand up for our beliefs. I just want us to do it in a way that will make them listen. Do it in a way that when they speak to us, and see not only our passion for what we’re talking about, but also our goodness. Our kindness and our genuine desire for a better world. Because if they can see that? They can hear the message. They can understand that it’s not us vs. them. It’s us vs. oppression, us vs. injustice, us fighting for a better world. And maybe then they will listen, and they’ll see that what we’re saying isn’t bad, in fact, what we’re fight for is good. What we’re fighting for is something that they need to fight for too. Then we will at least have a chance at changing minds, and changing this nation for the better. Because without changing the minds of the people in this nation, we can never change anything. Because like America Ferrera said at the march today (I’m paraphrasing as I can’t find the video right this second) “America is not the president, America is not the cabinet, America is us.” So how do you change the United States? You change the people. And how do you change people? You show them why they need to change. You show them that you are not someone worthy of the hatred that they may have held towards you, because you are a good person who cares about the future of this country. And if they can let go of that hatred. And then? You’ve changed one mind. You’ve made a difference. And little by little, maybe we can change the minds of people across the nation.
And I’m not saying that doesn’t happen without a fight. Because it absolutely does. But our fight can’t always be on a grand scale like it was today. Some days you have to go to work, and to school, and you have to take the fight with you. And in those little everyday interactions if you can show a little kindness to someone you disagree with, then maybe they can start to see your point of view. Because put yourself in their shoes – if someone you had all these preconceived notions about speaks to you in a kind way, would you not be intrigued? Would you not think that maybe what you had been taught was wrong? And if time after time, you come in to contact with all these wonderful, passionate people, would you not think that maybe you had been the one that was wrong all along. Because I would. And that, not a post on the internet screaming that I was wrong which I would dismiss out of hand, but those simple interactions of people willing to show me why I was wrong and how I can become better, those interactions that would disprove anything that I had thought before would be what would change my mind. And then I would want to stand with them, to show all the others that I had once agreed with that they are wrong to. And that’s where change happens. Take the fight from the internet home. Take it to work. Take it to school. Make it personal. Because people are never going to change their minds at the request of a circle with sunglasses on the internet. But they may change when they see real people, real representations of the other side, showing their humanity and their strength and then we can win the fight. We can change the story.
That is why all the posts I’ve been seeing from the Women’s March today are so inspiring. Because they say we are here and we are peaceful, but we are not backing down. That is the spirit I want to carry into 2017. I want us to never back down, never give up, but I want us to do that in a way that will make the other want side listen and want to change.
I think Aries and Libra both interestingly share neutrality, which is interesting because you’d think Aries would just be extremely biased for themselves. I’d like to argue that there is indeed a neutral side that adds to the contradicting complexity of Aries as a sign.
Aries is ruled by Mars. Mars represents our energy. Energy can go two ways, which means that energy itself is neutral. It will go in whatever direction you want. Aries as a sign is neutral because it’s so young… in fact, it is the youngest sign. It’s impossible to create a solid opinion when you’ve been freshly born into the world. While it is possible for Aries to be extremely stubborn and biased for themselves, they can also be open-minded and strangely wise, which can possible lead to a neutral, but passionate attitude. Infants can still certainly teach us a thing or two, even though they haven’t seen the world entirely.
I understand that this is a cowardly way to do this. I just knew that if I did this face to face, I wouldn’t be able to say it. I’m truly, truly sorry that things have ended up this way. Just know that when I say I am undoubtedly in love with you, I mean it. You are my sunshine, you’ve always kept me happy in life. I am not doing this because I no longer love you or that I am unhappy with you. I’m doing this because I just cannot take it anymore. The secrets, the hiding, everything. I understand you have to think about your career, but I have to think about myself. I am only doing what is best for the both of us. I know that you’ll do fine when I’m gone, and look on the bright side. You won’t have to be with a woman that is too much of a coward to break up with you to your face. I love you, and I’m sorry.
Jackson read the letter left for him by his girlfriend. ‘How could she do this?’ He thought. He frantically looked around for his jacket, grabbing it before running out of the dorms. He ran the few blocks from the dorm to her apartment, hoping that she would still be awake by the time he arrived. He ran up nine flights of stairs to the floor his girlfriend lived on. He banged on her door, not caring if he woke the neighbors up.
“Jackson, go home. You don’t need to be here,” She said from the other side of the door.
“I’m not going home until we talk about this!” He yelled, continuing to bang on the door.
When the door opened, he leaped into her arms. He held onto her as if she would float away like dust in the wind if he let her go. He heard her sigh, managing to shut the door behind him.
“Please don’t leave me,” He cried. Every tear he shed hit her heart like a hammer. She knew that it would come to this, which is why she left a letter instead of breaking up with him face to face. She should have known that he would have this reaction, but she hoped he would silently accept it.
“It’s what is best for both of us,” She coldly replied. She managed to break herself free from his iron grip, distancing herself from him immediately. Jackson would never admit it, but she was his ultimate weakness. He was a fool in love and would do anything for her. However, he was also a selfish man in love. He didn’t want to let her go, fearing the possibility of her meeting someone else. He wanted to be the only one to have her.
“Tell me why you think this is what’s best,” He pleaded. She refused to speak, so he asked again. This time, grabbing her wrist and turning her around to look at him.
“I’m tired of the secrets,” She whispered. “I’m tired of hiding our relationship. It’s not healthy for us to have to act like we are nothing to each other. Having to hide our relationship from everyone except the other members is not good for us. No matter how much this hurts, I know it’s what I have to do… I will be hurt further if I continue being with you,” She finishes, her words lacking all emotion. He heard his heartstrings snap at the sound of her words.
“I can’t live without you… I love you so much,” His tears started flowing more and more as the situation continued. If he couldn’t have her, he would never be the same. She was his muse, his inspiration. He could do and be anything with her beside him. If she were to leave, he would crumble and fade away.
“You are going to have to, baby. This is what’s best, and you know it,” She argued. His sadness turned to bitterness and anger. “I do not know that!” He yelled. “This isn’t what’s best, and you know that! What do you want me to do? Do you want me to just reveal to the world that we are dating? Do you want me to go against JYP and let our relationship be known? What do you want me to do? Tell me what you want me to do and I will do it. I would do anything for you. Just give me my orders!” He was on his knees begging by this point. No matter how weak it made him look, he was nothing but putty in her hands.
“Please, leave,” She said softly. He nodded his head, knowing that arguing was no use. Much like himself, she was a fighter. She wouldn’t back down, no matter what. He was the same, but she was his kryptonite.
In the few weeks following that night, she had forced herself to move on. Jackson tried to contact her many times since that night, but she ignored him every single time. The first few days, she didn’t know what to do with herself. She usually would spend her off days with Jackson, but now she had a free schedule. She knew that sitting and sulking wouldn’t help, it would only make matters worse. She forced herself to get more consumed by her work, deciding that working would be the right cure.
She was scrolling through her phone on her lunch break when she saw a link to a video. ‘Jackson Wang Opens Up About Mysterious Girlfriend’ it read. She feared the worst but clicked on the video anyway. The video was taken from a variety show that Got7 had recently been on. One of the MC’s asked about any love interest, and Jackson spoke up.
“Being in love when you’re an idol isn’t an easy thing to do. What is harder, though, is being in love with an idol. My love has had to hide our relationship for so long, and I think the pressure finally became too much for her to handle. We haven’t seen one another in weeks, and honestly, it is hurting me so badly. I have tried to throw myself into music to occupy my mind, but she is in everything around me. She is my muse, some of the best things I have created have been inspired by her. She is the love of my life, and now I fear that she will be gone forever,” Mark pulled him into a hug, rubbing his shoulder as he broke down in tears. The MC was at a lost for words, and so was she. She didn’t even finish eating lunch before she bolted out the door.
The roles were reversed this time as she banged on the door to the Got7 dorm. When someone opened the door, she pushed past them and barged into the room where Jackson laid on his bed.
“Have you lost your mind? What kind of stunt was that? Do you know what this could do to your career?!” She yelled.
“What’s the point of having a career when I don’t have my inspiration with me?!” He yelled back.
She felt all of her strength left her body. She fell to her knees on the floor. Jackson got down on his knees and cried with her, the repercussions of his confession lingered in his mind. He knew, though, that whatever the outcome it would be far easier than trying to live without her. They cried in each other’s arms, and he kissed her head and told her everything would be okay.
“What’s done is done. It’s all out in the open. There’s no more hiding. I would rather lose popularity than lose you. I want to become a better Jackson not only for myself but for you, the other members, and iGot7. Keeping a secret like this hasn’t helped me become a better Jackson, it has done the opposite.”
He grabbed his phone from on top of his bed, typing in his passcode and opening Instagram. He went to his page and tapped on his most recent post. It was a picture of them taken on their first date.
Jacksonwang852g7: I am sure by now most of you have heard my recent confession. This is the woman that I am in love with. We have been together for almost a year and three months now. I took this picture on our first date. Please do not think that I lied to all of you about her. At the time, letting our relationship be known to the public was not something that could be a reality. I placed such a massive burden on her shoulders by making her keep this secret. Despite knowing that we would have to hide our relationship, she always met me with a smile and warmth. I know you are worried about me, but I am wonderful I promise 😊 I let my emotions get ahold of me too much in that interview and I am sorry that I worried you all.
I hope that my relationship with her doesn’t change my relationship with you. I did not intend on this being how I told all of you. I want us to have as close of a relationship as we can, without secrets. I promise from here there will be no more secrets. I love every single one of you and wish you nothing but happiness and good health. Please take care of us and accept us with love and open arms. With all of iGot7 supporting me, I can become a better Jackson. This is only the first step for me ❤️
“You are such a fool…” She sighed, handing his phone back to him. She knew that most of his fans would support him no matter what, but she also knew that he would receive a bit of hate for being in a relationship. She also knew that his company wouldn’t have nice things to say to him about the situation. He didn’t care about either of those, though. He was ready to take responsibility for his actions.
“You’re right. I’m just a fool. A fool in love with you.”
She wondered why she ever thought that breaking up in the first place would be the best thing for them. They were best for each other, secret or no secret. She found that it was part of her selfishness that first gave her the idea. She wanted to be able to show to the world how amazing her boyfriend is. She wanted to be able to go out in public and kiss, hold hands, and hug out in the open without worries of someone seeing them. Not being able to do that drove her mad.
Despite that, even if he hadn’t come out about their relationship, they wouldn’t have been able to stay apart for long. His own selfishness would have gotten the best of him and he would make sure that they were together, but she wouldn’t have put up much of a fight after long anyway.
Jackson ran his hands through her hair as she rested her head on his lap. He placed a kiss to her temple, his heart at peace. He was a lot of things, but most importantly he was just a foolish man. A foolish man in love with a woman that is far too good for him. Despite that fact, he knew that he would do his best to love her and protect her as long as he lived. He was never going to let her slip through his fingers again. Even if he had to chain himself to her, he would stay by her side forever.
“I love you, with all of my heart I do.”
“I love you too.”
It may be difficult to love Jackson from Got7, but loving Jackson Wang is as easy as breathing. You may be a fool for loving me, but I am as much a fool as you. I let my own selfishness get the best of me, and that was a mistake. I understand my mistakes now and I will never make those mistakes again. I will push you to be the best that you can be and will stay by your side through even the most difficult of times. I know you will also do the same for me. I love you, you sweet fool.
