Hi dear kama, after years i still dont understand why Yunho kissed the neck of Changmin in the MKMF 2008 or im the only one who sees this? or nobody cares? This is material for shipping and not like photoshoped couple, it's something that takes away my sleep, always wonder why he did it. Im a trashy, i know. Sorry kama.
Ohhh, The Hug…(*´∀｀)
Well, about no one talking about it… it’s hard for me to say so because for me, someone who’s here for years, I’ve seen this moment analysed over and over again from every single angle and point of view and every fancam and I just have a feeling everything that was to say about this moment was said million times before (ㆁωㆁ*) but i suppose it looks very different for newer fans or shippers, orz…
and about the meaning of it, well, for me this whole moment was just a perfect example of their closeness and bond, but not exactly in a …shippy? way? Changmin was in very obvious very strong distress and Yunho wanted to comfort him no matter what, ignoring all the people, fans, awards, all the world around them. He just carred about helping his best friend and the neck kiss, I don’t actually think that was a ~~kiss~~ per se, more like touching skin to skin, to give Changmin a sense of warmth and affection and show that Yh is there for him and not just…idk, shut him up. So yeah, for me it was always all about the comfort and friendship winning over glory and awards, perfect example how important they were for each other even then ;)
a few years ago, 4chan’s /v/ board discovered a game about playing baseball with Winnie the Pooh characters on Disney’s Japanese website
the thing about this game was that it was insanely difficult. the “normal” characters in the game’s earlier levels required pretty precise timing to hit their pitches, and as you progressed through the games levels and made it to characters like tigger and owl the game flat-out started cheating. tigger’s pitches would zig-zag in mid-air, owl’s pitches would turn invisible halfway through and you had to hit them on pure timing alone, and so on. it was insanely hard and everyone was enamored by it. why is this winnie the pooh game for babies insanely hard, requiring reaction times that almost seemed inhuman?
then people beat all of those characters and made it to christopher robin. christopher robin was next to impossible to beat. he incorporated every previous character’s throwing quirks and would switch them up with every pitch. he would sometimes even combine them, like pitching invisible screwballs. you couldn’t defeat him.
everyone on /v/ loved this game. it gelled perfectly with the internet’s sense of humor at the time. people would photoshop christopher robin’s face on meteors with winnie the pooh preparing to bat the meteor out of the sky. fancomics were drawn. christopher robin became an angry god hell-bent on destroying everything in his path, winnie the pooh became earth’s last hero standing in defiance of the gods. it was insane. all because of this weird, insanely difficult japanese winnie the pooh baseball game.
YOOO so imma pinpoint the exact moment when Lance stopped being overly flirtatious with Allura and actually started respecting her as a person and maybe even falling in love with her
Okay ya ready?? (oh and im ignoring the vlog completely lol i think we can all agree with that)
So we all know that the turning point was season 3, but Im wondering why exactly. What made him think, “huh maybe my feelings are more serious than jst playful flirting, or trying to get a kiss? Maybe Allura means alot more to me then just a pretty face”
And I have the answer!
This moment. Right here. S2E13
When the castle blew up, and everyone thought she had died. The moment Lance thought he’d lost her. Look at his face
ahhh im crying Everyone else was looking up at the castle completely dumbstruck, but Lance was already doubled over, in full regret mode. (and we know how hard he is on himself)
What could have been going on in his head?? Why did I waste so much time flirting? I knew she didnt like it. I could have spent that time getting to know her… asking about her father and mother and homeplanet. I could have been friends with her. I could have not been annoying. I could have….. I could have….
but i didnt
omg im actually crying lolol
LOOK AT HIS FACE WHEN HE FINDS OUT SHE’S OKAY
THOSE. ARE. TEARS. IN. HIS. EYES. PEOPLE
THE BOY HAS NEVER ACTUALLY CRIED ON SCREEN
OR SO WE THOUGHT
LOOK AT THAT
I swear i didnt photoshop or anything (i dont have those skillz lol) I actually discovered this AS I WAS MAKING THIS POST lolol and I completely freaked out hahaha XD
So yeah I think it’s safe to say that was the turning point, because from then on we stopped getting looks like this
a) don’t have access to the video that’s gif’d because you don’t know where it’s from or you don’t know how to download it. Which already proves that making gifs is difficult because of the time spent video hunting and downloading. (You’d be surprised how hard it is to download videos from certain websites.)
b) don’t have access to photoshop, because you’re not sure how to download it, or you do have it but don’t know how to work it. Which again, proves making gifs is difficult because it’s more than just right clicking then saving as (which is what reposting is - so if you catch yourself doing this, stop!) You have to learn how to use photoshop to actually make a gif, and to actually use photoshop you have to know how and where to download it. Some people even pay for it, and it’s extremely unfair to those that do because something they essentially paid for is getting stolen from them.
Gifs are not even just about being able to do the basic load files into stacks or import layers from frames, whichever method of gif making you prefer. Nope. It’s about coloring as well, which makes your gif unique and different from someone else’s. People spend time making their gifs look nice in addition to spending their time looking for the right video and whatnot.
So have some respect for people that do their best to provide you with pretty gifs on your dashboard to reblog >:(
(No, it does not count if you repost someone’s gif and “give credit”, especially if the source is “it’s not mine but I found it on Google”. Tumblr made a beautiful function called a REBLOG. Use it. It’s your best friend.)
Next time you say, “everyone reposts” or “they’re just gifs”, keep in mind making gifs isn’t actually as easy as some people belittle it to be! Try making gifs for yourself and see how hard it is. Really, try.
(And if you’re thinking, “oh making gifs is so easy! I’ve tried it!” then it literally costs you $0.00 to make your own gifs and gain notes through your own hard work.Seriously. Stop taking credit for someone else’s hard work.)
Stopping reposts can happen if you take a step to stop yourself from reposting and letting others know why it’s bad too. If no one tells you what you’re doing is wrong, how would you know what you’re doing isn’t right? One by one, we can all eventually stop reposting because it’s very disrespectful to artists (yes, gif makers are considered artists too).
If you want notes, earn them yourself just like how every original content makers do. And even if you can’t make anything yourself, don’t be mean. Support people’s works.
(This applies to everyone that makes original content, fan art, fan fiction, graphics, etc. The steps in between to make them are different, but reposts affect all of us the same. Please stop reposting and respect the artists.)
each fallen human has a specifically coloured soul associated with them. these colours can be seen on the coffins in new home, asgore’s soul containers, and the photoshop flowey boss battle. little is known about these souls, but what can be inferred is that each soul colour represents a unique trait. accessing this information requires multiple rounds of “ball game” in the snowdin forest. if the game is completed fast enough and the red flag is obtained, the following message appears.
however, red soul’s trait is never mentioned. or is it?
determination is not a trait
before exploring the red soul’s trait, it’s time to explain why determination is not the red soul’s trait. while it is a popular choice, it ultimately does not work for a few reasons. unlike the other traits, every human soul has determination.
unlike all the other traits, determination is inherently inside all humans. furthermore, “determination” is never mentioned in the ball game. it’s also never specifically linked with the red soul nor is it ever written in red text. the word “determination” is only written in white or yellow.
there is nothing that suggests determination is an exclusive trait to the red soul. it is merely a component in all the coloured human souls.
the different soul colours each represent their own positive traits according to “ball game.” the first time the red flag is achieved, the following message appears.
these are the positive traits of all the souls besides the red soul. when the ball game is won a second time in the conditions for the red flag, a new message appears.
it’s important to note that the ball game can only be played as long as snowdin is not cleared of monsters. if genocide is successful in snowdin, then the snowball will be gone, rendering the ball game useless. this is the only time the ball game cannot be played. in the neutral and pacifist routes, the game can be played even after reaching snowdin or after defeating papyrus.
from the red flag, the phrase “be yourself” is important. the idea of “being yourself” is seen repeatedly throughout the game, so long as the genocide route is not in motion. if frisk is still on the neutral route, frisk can look into the mirror in toriel’s home, and the following is said:
in new home, frisk can look into a second mirror and see the following:
this text appears in every route, except the genocide route. whether this is a reflection of frisk is up to interpretation.
in a pacifist route, after defeating asriel, frisk can look into the mirror in home once more to see this:
one of the most important elements of the pacifist route is the reveal of the protagonist’s true name, frisk. it highlights how frisk’s identity, or even their true self, is only revealed at the end of a pacifist route.
ultimately, the ball game holds the most important clue. the statement seems rather vague, until the one-word limitation is removed and the trait is seen as a phrase.
“being yourself” is seen in two ways in the context of undertale. the first is more obvious, with the phrase referring to how frisk is only themself in the neutral route and pacifist route. once the genocide route is in motion, frisk is no longer in predominant control – chara is. interestingly enough, when chara is in control during the genocide route and the snowdin forest is cleared, the ball game is unavailable, perhaps highlighting the fact that frisk is no longer truly themself.
the second way the virtue of “being yourself” is used in game is by its definition. “being oneself” means to be genuine, honest, or true to one’s character. along with determination, it is what allows frisk to keep going, especially in the pacifist route. sans alludes to this when he judges frisk in the last corridor.
“so as long as you do what’s in your heart” can be seen as another way to say “be true to yourself.” there is another reference to this trait in sans’ judgment should frisk have killed any monster.
while subtle, sans stresses the importance of being true to "yourself,” even in the face of committing a terrible crime.
“being yourself” may seem synonymous with integrity, but there is a difference. integrity is defined as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.” while both are a quality of being honest, there is a difference to what that honesty is towards. those with integrity are righteous, fair, and of good character. however, integrity is not needed to be yourself. being yourself is to stay true to who you are, regardless of what that may be. perhaps a word for this could be “individuality,” “nonconformity,” or “sincerity.”
while the other soul virtues are clearly defined by their colour coded trait, the red soul remains much more ambiguous. perhaps this is because frisk, chara, and the player persist as such different individuals despite being intrinsically linked, therefore the common trait between them can only be just that: their individual “true” self.
It was a Saturday night and you were hanging out with the cast by the pool. You were sitting on the side dipping your legs in the pool as you watched the boys play chicken. Jaeden was on Wyatt’s shoulder and Jack was on Finn’s. Jaeden reaches over and knocks Jack off of Finn’s shoulders,
“YEA JYATT JYATT JYATT” Wyatt and Jaeden chant
“The greatest ship of all time” You yelled throwing your hands up
“Well Jyatt is no Y/S/N” Jack says. Finn’s eyes go wide and he hits Jack on the shoulder whispering,
“dude shut up”
“What?” You asked having never heard yours and Finn’s ship name before.
“Uhh nothing he said nothing” Finn says clearly hiding something. You take your legs out the pool and stand up,
“I uhm have to go to the bathroom” you say going inside. You walk inside and pull out your phone typing in
#Y/S/N in Twitter, then Instagram, and finally Tumblr
Holy crap, you thought to yourself
How have I never seen this before
There were MILLIONS of things with your ship name on it. There were edits of all your “cute” moments. There were photoshopped pictures of you two kissing, fan fictions, conspiracy theories on why you two might be hiding your relationship to the public
Y/S/N was EVERYWHERE
But what got you the most was a video. It was a video compilation of all Y/S/N moments.
All the times he’s made you laugh
All the times he’s looked at you like nothing else in the world mattered
All the times you two had joked around and never looked happier than when you were with each other
You sat in the bathroom letting this ship blow your mind and you finally decide to walk outside.
“Hey Jack can I talk to you for a second?” You ask. He gets out of the pool and follows you inside,
“What’s up?” he asks and you hand him your phone with the #Y/S/N open on it
“What the hell is this?!” You say loosing your cool
“Uhhhh well that’s yours and Finn’s ship name” he says uncomfortably
“What is it?”
“Well a ship is when people think that-”
“I know what a ship is” you say, “Why have I never seen it before??”
He hesitates to answer but finally gets it out, “Finn’s been trying to keep it from you..You left your phone alone one time and he uhh found a way to block the hashtag from reaching your timeline” he finally gets out
“Why would he do that?!” You ask. Jack looks at you hoping you’ll pick up on the hint so he doesn’t have to tell you,
“Does he…is it..Jack?” Jack continues to stay quiet.
“Shit does he like me?” You ask nervously
“He does feel something for you that starts with an L and has four letters”
You look down at your feet and say,
“C-can you send him in here” Jack nods and leaves to go get Finn. Finn walks in with a towel around his waist drying himself off from the pool,
“Hey Y/N what do you n-” he stops seeing the ship name open on your phone,
“Look I can explain” he says and before he can start to, you grab the sides of his face and pull him into a kiss. He kisses you back grabbing your waist,
“Does this mean Y/S/N is a cannon?” He says. You chuckle and pull him back into a kiss
