Yeah, this is a comical scene, in a way. But the thing that gets to me is that Coran isn’t trying to Sugar-coat anything. He’s telling it to Lance like it is, while still keeping a relatively positive outlook on how far from Earth they are.
He listens when Lance rants and reminisces with Lance about Earth and Altea.
“Yeah, water that falls from the sky.”
“Oh, we had that on Altea. Only, it wasn’t water, more like rocks. Razor sharp and boiling hot. Oh! They could knock a hole right in your head…”
This post is nowhere near completion, as all this stuff is stuff that happened in the 4th episode. There are so many many more instances where Coran helps by either making people relax or by reminiscing with them like shown here.
I’ll probably add more to this post as I go through the episodes, but still… my point stands…
in japan, it’s custom for girls to give 義理チョコ (giri choco, or “obligation chocolate”) to her friends and coworkers, and for her to give 本命チョコ (honmei choco, or “true feelings chocolate”) to the one she has romantic feelings for, but ya boy doesnt care about japanese gender roles
anyway happy valentines day!! i thought this would be a cute idea although im pretty sure someone already did it (better)
People easily forget that this is showbiz. Celebs, especially the most ''desired'' ones will always be asked about their love life. There's no way that just because Harry is now with the Azoffs this will stop. Its very unlikely for him to not be seen/date a girl ever again until he comes out. Once he comes out & has a partner (Louis) this might stop, but even then bc the 'hotshot' he's made to be there might be bullshit quotes in tabloids, while in interviews they'll question him about Louis...
Disclaimer: this is the only ask I am going to reply about the topic because I don’t want to spend my time talking about Harry’s team nor Harry’s het image nor anything they want me to talk about to perpetuate their narratives. I’m going to focus to what I like from this promo/Harry’s image only, so feel free to indirect and insult in asks & tags because my opinion is different from yours but this is the only time I am going to discuss this topic anyway.
I use this ask to say that people forget a lot of things when it comes to this promo because they were so sure he wouldn’t be asked anything but his music and he was totally free to blacklist topics like who he’s dating….. lol as IF.
Apart from the fact that he signed with a Sony label and this should tell you all about what kind of marketing they usually do around their megastars, people also forget that:
1. this is Sony wet dream coming true: Harry Styles™ having a deal with them, making a solo album, a solo single, a SOLO image all for them to sell, groom and get money from without the rest of the band around. they won the jackpot here. they are going to do what they feel it’s necessary and he’s going to play by the rule as any other singer who wants a career. The other band members had to do the same, the context was different for each of them (way different) and the goals were different too, but they all play by the rules. Harry is not excluded because now he can be himself and be authentic, like some people like to think for weeks now, he might only want his music to talk but this will never happen unfortunately. (I think he knows this too)
2. He has a manager who organised a fake hack of more than 80 pictures of Kendall Jenner sitting on Harry’s lap and pretending to kiss him (+800 sets of pap pics in two days) for months and months, not once but twice, every time she needed something to promote, blaming the fans for doing it when it was clearly staged and even used Harry’s mother to make it look more ‘real’. And the story about Kendall comes back every two months when needed, even if she’s dating someone else now. He also sold his own girlfriend to TMZ by making her hold hand with Harry and pretend to be a mystery woman to get him coverage about another man magazine and the launch party and once they were satisfied with the attention it got, they issued a denial through the same magazine so they got coverage from that as well. Like, it doesn’t take a genius to understand that he’s in the closet and his team is doing what they have to do in order to sell the product. Het narratives sells, tabloids want that, especially from someone like Harry who has a very well known reputation unfortunately. Maybe they won’t perpetuate it in the same way Modest did (i don’t think so, but you know, it’s still Sony so never say never) and they’ll surely give him more space to talk about his music like they are already doing, but the ‘im single and ready to date’ will never go away until he comes out. and it’s not going to happen now that he’s about to launch his solo career, let’s be real.
Again, his ‘approach’ to the topic will likely be different than when he was in 1D (mostly because they want to make him the male version of Adele so they need a slightly different narrative) and he will probably be more vague like he was in this pre-recorded interview, but the topic was still brought up and it was absolutely predictable. They know what sells and what doesn’t so don’t expect him to only talk about his music and his working process, also seeing how tabloids are focusing on this quote this morning, the questions about dating and exes won’t stop any time soon in my opinion.
So this is my first fic request from @2jaekisses with the prompt “cop!youngjae and badboy!jaebum”! I’ve never done a fic request before so I was really nervous about this and I don’t know if you wanted it this angsty but it gets fluffy and flirty at the end I promise!

What started off as a routine call for small town cop Choi Youngjae turned out to be anything but when he met a foul-mouthed, bad-tempered man named Im Jaebum.
Important Author’s Note: There is some implied homophobia from an OC who isn’t actually in the story. However, a conversation will take place where one homophobic slur is mentioned. I just wanted to mention this ahead of time.
So, i dont have ONE Elia Martell, i have several, each of thm depends of the teor of the post, but, basically, the one i use as “my” Elia, is turkish actress Nur Aysan, she is known for her role in the series “Magnificent Century”.
1)Elia Martell’s character is one of the most misterious and the one we most receive false tips about it: So, i’m sure that as far as the next book comes, we will know more on Elia’s personality and motivation. To me, what proves that Elia’s character is full of false tips, is that she is often regarded as “ugly”, “weak”, “not fit for a prince”. Yet, Meera comes with the “But there were others fairer still. One was the wife of the dragon prince, who’d brought a dozen lady companions to attend her” is about Elia being beautiful. Other point i take, is Jaime Lannister’s dream of Rhaegar telling him “I left my wife and children in your hands.” Jaime dreamt of what Rhaegar, and his once fellows of kings guard, would tell them. He knew Rhaegar, he knew that the prince would never accept the fate of his family, which, comes to my second cannon…
2)Elia’s relationship with Rhaegar wasnt “forced marriage” nor “lack of love”: He needed a Visenya and nobody better than the “The knight of the Laughing tree” aka Lyanna Stark, to give birth to her. Elia and Rhaegar lived isolated in Dragon’s stone for 5 years, they were isolated, i highly doubt they didnt interact as a couple there, all this time. I’m sure they were “partners in crime” and, as much as Rhaegar actions were fool and lead everyone to the grave, i’m sure Elia supported him against his mad father, that lead’s me to my third cannon…
3) Elia supported Rhaegar, she was his rock. But it doesnt mean that she, being a dornish, and sister to Oberyn, make her out to be a “open minded” wife and ok with Rhaegar and Lyanna’s supposed relation: Yes, Elia was dornish. Yes, Elia was Oberyn sis. Yes, she grew up in a good place for women to be in. Nothing of that makes her ok with Rhaegar abduction of Lyanna and making a baby in her. She was daughter of a ruling woman, for sure she knew the implications of Rhaegar’s actions, as well she knew his whole plan. That doesnt make her to be ok with. Elia was a victim of the whole situation.
4) Elia was a good mother, sweet and kind, good hearted, with a sweet wit & very smart: Elia knew and was somewhat prepared to fit the role she was in. She was going to be a future queen. She was all the “sweet” things, and as im sure Rhaegar trusted her, he also found her to be very smart. She could be a good mother, good wife, good sister and good crow princess as well. I’m also sure she tried to reason with Aerys, but he was already mad…
5)Somewhere or someone stated, i cant remember where or in which chapter, that “Elia fought like a tigress against Clegane”: I have no doubts on that. I’m sure that we will find out that she, indeed, being a “fragile health” did all she could to defend her Aegon, until her last breath. She was Nymeria’s descendent after all.
