OK so I know I’m like the only person on Tumblr still playing Neko
Atsume, but today’s update freaks me out a little bit. There’s one new
rare cat, and he’s called Whiteshadow. His “type” is not the usual like,
grey, or calico, or whatever… no, it’s NINJA COSTUME!!!
I saw him as soon as I opened the app a few minutes ago, standing on a
fence in the yard, not anywhere I’ve ever seen one of the cats before,
just standing there staring, not on any of the spots where the toys and stuff go.
I thought it was odd and a little spooky; I took a couple pictures of him, looked at them on his page, and went
back to the yard. He was gone just like that, in like three seconds,
and instead of fish he left three cans of cat food??? Which since I don’t use that kind of cat food and already had 99 cans of it meant I got nothing, really??
Then I looked closer at his profile page… Under “goodies”, he doesn’t use
any “goodies” like the other cats… no, he just goes on “scouting
missions”. Who is he scouting for? Is someone about to take over the
yard?? Am I becoming paranoid over a simple silly game about cute
This game is
just trying to see how far it can go at this point and still keep crazy addicted users like me…
I need to tell myself at this point: you idiot there are starving children in the world… stop wasting your time playing and worrying about this ridiculous game… but then I think… I can’t neglect the cats!!! oh my g this is pathetic I need a life and a real hobby…
ok since i literally never shut up about how much i love youngmin i just wanted to talk about my last gifset aka the scene where youngmin gives dongbin a pep talk right after practicing in front of boa. i could talk about everything regarding boys & girls team but i’m gonna focus on this specific moment because it speaks so much about his personality and shows us a little bit of how wonderful he is !!!
everyone here knows that youngmin is always working behind the scenes to help out the other kids and this instance right here is the best example of that. the boys went to sit down in the back and it was another group’s turn to practice so none of the cameras or attention should’ve been on them but that’s how genuine he is; he never intended for people to see or hear his encouragement for dongbin in the first place. he wasn’t doing it bc he wanted to look good in front of the camera, he was doing it for the sake of his team member and his team member only. he wasn’t making a big fuss out of it and he wasn’t trying to prove how nice of a person he was. his compassion for the other boys on this show is simply so genuine.
when youngmin talked about how nervous he was, he wasn’t comparing his situation to dongbin’s. even tho he was a bnm trainee who had a lot of burden and pressure, he wasn’t using it as a way to guilt dongbin. he didn’t mean “oh you shouldn’t be nervous, i’m the one who has more pressure and more consequences, etc.” or anything that made dongbin feel inferior; in fact, he was sharing his worries with dongbin to make him realize that they were both the same. he was letting dongbin know that he understood how nervous he was bc he felt the same way too, that it was natural for them to be nervous and they shouldn’t be ashamed of it. here he was acting as an older figure by reassuring dongbin that even tho they’re nervous, they can still do this.
another important thing that youngmin does is that he doesn’t blame dongbin for his lack of rapping skills. yes, everyone knows that dongbin’s rapping skills are not up to par and that he’s struggling, but he never outright criticizes him for not being able to do something. instead he addressed dongbin’s fear of failing onstage bc his confidence is what really makes or breaks his performance. when youngmin points out to dongbin that he has performed well before and that he can do it again, he’s reminding him of his value and how successful he can (and will) be. not only does that help dongbin gain some more self-esteem, it shows how much he cares about him to remember his past achievements when they weren’t even on the same team.
the tone youngmin uses might seem intimidating at first bc he’s talking so fast and firmly but when you pair it with his hand gestures and body posture, you can definitely tell that he’s just concerned and wants to be able to help ease dongbin’s troubled mind. he gives dongbin his full attention and even takes his hand into his for support. he never breaks eye contact and the fist bump he initiates at the end makes it clear to dongbin that he is not angry with him and that he is not blaming him in the slightest. youngmin knows how to communicate with others well, especially with those younger than him since he has a younger brother at home, and it really helps him establish the trust and bond between him and his team members as both a mentor and a friend who wants the best for him. i don’t know how dongbin views youngmin but compared to how his previous team treated him when they were picking the center, i hope he was able to see how much youngmin truly cared for him and wanted him to improve with his own ability.
anyways that’s all i wanted to say about this, or all i remember right now anyways i just really love youngmin a lot and the way he treats other people on the show is really inspiring he’s truly an angel a gift to the world and i love him so much ;;;
The plan isn’t ruined, per se, but he was rather counting on them to be slightly less suspicious. Grey Wardens are heroes of legend, and people routinely called heroes are supposed to be giving and trusting. This lot clearly isn’t. The elf - Dalish, if he’s seeing correctly - and Qunari are just short of openly disdainful, trading eyerolls when they think no one can see. At least, he clearly sees the elf roll her eyes; the Qunari is on the far side and perhaps more mannerly than Zevran gives him credit for.
Perhaps only the human is a Grey Warden then. He certainly seems eager to assist the woman Zevran’s hired. His information is scare and outdated; it’s entirely possible the others could be tagalongs. That would be more fitting. Champions sometimes amass a following, and outlaw heroes have their own appeal. And if the Grey Warden is this blindly trusting, well, he certainly needs them.
That rather complicates things for him though. The two suspicious ones are scanning the horizon, shoulders tight, clearly expecting something. The massive dog - and Zevran’s not sure if he’s a Grey Warden or not, this being Ferelden - is scenting the air. They’re not going to make it to the wagon.
example: in the fourth grade i had a teacher go through the roster w the directions “if there’s any other name you go by let me know” and when she got to me i deadass replied w “peanut” bc it’s what my parents always called me
