quick Got7 “If You Do” footwork tutorial!! (my friend was asking for one lol) anyway there are four basic positions and it’s on a loop, also I filmed my mirror so you can just copy it as is ~~
(note: this probably isn’t perfect but this is what works for me, hope this helps anyone trying to learn!!)
While Jackson is on the show Roommate, Junior comes to visit and meets you. You
guys instantly have a connection
fluff, smut, Junior dom
came over to visit Jackson at the dorm. Jackson was filming the reality show
Roommate at the moment, and Junior had been invited over for the weekend to
hang out. Junior was a little unsure about it. He didn’t like the idea of
cameras following him around at every moment, but his manager insisted he do
it, because it would be good publicity for both him and GOT7. Somehow on the
first day he had been roped into cooking lunch, too.
You were seated in a very uncomfortable chair in the Beacon Hills Hospital, waiting for your dad, who just so happened to be working a little overtime- again. “Hi (Y/N),” Melissa, a very nice nurse greeted. “Hello Melissa,” you sighed, changing your seating position yet again. She laughed, “Your dad should be out in 15 minutes max.” “Thank you,” you replied, pulling your phone out to check for any messages. The doors slid open and 2 very handsome boys waltzed in. One had shaggy brown hair and the other with a buzz cut. The shaggy haired one had always caught your eye, he reminded you of a puppy, a cute one. As you were looking- sorry, staring, Melissa caught you and ushered the shaggy haired one over to where you were. “Um, hi? I’m Scott.” He smiled awkwardly. “Hi! I’m (Y/N), nice to meet you.” You greeted enthusiastically. “So um, what are you waiting for?” He asked. “My dad is working a little longer than expected.” You stated whilst rolling your eyes jokingly. “Your dad works here? That’s so cool! You know you look just like Dr. (Y/L/N)!” He laughed. “Well I’d hope so, he’s my dad,” you giggled. His whole face flushed and his friend face palmed. “It’s ok! He-” You began to reassure him before you were interrupted. “Pulling some moves on my daughter I see, Mr. McCall. I’d love if you would have asked me for permission first, but Friday at 7 sounds great! You really are such a great young man!” Your dad smiled. Both yours and Scott’s jaws dropped. Melissa walked by and gave your dad a high five. “We’ve been planning that for months! All you two do is look at each other!” Melissa laughed. Well, Friday at 7 it was.
You were one of Lydia’s closets friends from grade school, but you moved away in second grade, losing all contact. Your parents had gotten a new job back in Beacon Hills which led to you going to the same school as the pack for high school, but you showed up one week later than the original start and had to go through the awkward first day thing, but you had Lydia to watch over you. You stepped into the chemistry class, clutching your books to your chest, as you walked up to the teacher’s desk to get yourself situated. All the while, Stiles slowly lost interest Lydia and was quickly falling for you. “Yes, Miss (Y/N), you’ll sit next to Mr. Stilinski. Stiles raise your hand.” Mr. Harris ordered. You caught sight of the innocent looking boy and smiled. “Hi, I’m (Y/N).” You smiled warmly at the blushing boy. “I’m Stiles but you can call me the man of your dreams,” he tried on you. “Oh,” you laughed. He cringed, “Sorry! Sorry! It slipped out!” “It’s ok, you’re lucky I have a thing for awkward, cute guys.” You winked. Well that was a nice surge of confidence. “I’m sorry what?” He choked out. “Although I’d say if you want to charm me, just be yourself, you seem cool.” You smiled. “So how do you know Lydia?” He asked. “I’ve known her for a while, but we lost touch. I’m back now and she’s taken me under her wing to show me the works. I’ve noticed she mainly ignores people.” You whispered.
“Yeah, I would be one of those people.” Stiles sighed. “You seem so cool! I’ll try to get her to talk to you more.” You offered. “Some of us are trying learn here!” Lydia hissed from the lab table adjacent to yours. “Sorry.” Both you and Stiles blushed. “I’ll get the notes from my friend, and maybe we can study together sometime?” Stiles offered. “Yeah that sounds good.” You smiled.
“Hi! Do you need anything?” You asked the boy in the hospital bed. “You look a little young to be a nurse.” He said quirking an eyebrow. “I got in trouble and as punishment I have to volunteer here.” You muttered. “Well maybe I can make it fun for you? I could use some company.” He smiled softly. “Perfect! I’m (Y/N) by the way.” You smiled taking a seat in the chair next to the bed. “I’m Liam,” he replied sticking his hand out. You shook it slowly, “So what are you doing here?” You asked. “Some juniors made me hurt my ankle.” He said. “That’s gotta hurt! What sport was it?” You asked. “I was trying out for lacrosse at Beacon Hills High.” He sighed. “I haven’t seen you there before!” You exclaimed. “Well I’m a freshman,” he trailed off. “So am I.” You laughed. You and Liam continued to talk about teachers, classes, sports, etc. until you heard a scream. “I should probably check really quick.” You whispered, rushing to the door to peek out. You ran over to Liam quickly explaining that one of the nurses was being attacked and you needed to hide. “I don’t believe you.” He mumbled, before limping to the hallway. You tried to get him to come back into the room but whatever was in the hallway took an interest in Liam and took him. You began opening the door but a man covered in hair and red eyes caught sight of you, so you ducked out of fear and locked the door. You took a deep breath, opening the door as soon as you saw the hall was empty. You rushed around the hospital looking for your new friend. You frantically pressed the button to the roof, the last place to check. Liam was in pain holding his wrist while 2 guys stood worried over him. “Liam!” You yelled running over to him. “2! Scott, really! Good thing I have duct tape.” One of the guys yelled at the other. The next thing you knew, both you and Liam were taped up and taken to one of the boys’ houses.
“Stiles! Scott! This isn’t funny! Your guys’ parents didn’t pay me to drive 2 little kids around! This place is kind of creepy.” You called out. You were a neighbor of the Stilinski’s, a little older than Stiles and Scott, going to a local college, and the 2 teens’ chauffeur for a week. “Who might you be?” A guy asked, practically emerging from the shadows. “Um I don’t know if you know them, you probably don’t, but have you seen Scott or Stiles?” You asked nervously. “Yeah, actually. They were in here about 10 minutes ago.” He said. “Well, can you tell me where they went?” You asked, beginning to get frustrated. “Ok, ok calm down, I sent them on an errand. Can I get you anything?” He offered. “Seriously! They don’t have means of transportation! I’m taking to a creepy man and he’s offering me something from an abandoned loft! You’ll probably slip roofies in my drink!” You yelled. The guy stared at you for a few seconds before walking off. “Here’s a water. Sealed. Brand new. No drugs.” He said handing the water over. “Thanks,” you trailed off. It was awkward, so awkward. A very handsome guy watching you drink water in an abandoned loft. “I live here by the way. It’s not abandoned. I’m Derek.” He smiled. “Oh! Sorry! It’s just these 2 have been driving me crazy for the past 3 days, and I need the money, but they forced me to drive them here and I got worried.” You babbled on and on. “Well, clearly I’m not the one who needs to apologize but maybe I can make it up to you with a coffee, maybe dinner?” He smiled. “(Y/N) and I would love that.” You laughed. “Oh and I lent Scott and Stiles my car for the errand.” He chuckled. After exchanging numbers and relaxing a bit Scott and Stiles showed up. You laughed, lightly hitting Derek’s very firm arm. “Wow! Sourwolf got game!” Stiles exclaimed. Your head snapped over to the boys, as did Derek. “Wolf?! Really?!” Scott whisper yelled. “Yeah, you know why. Grrr!” Stiles chuckled awkwardly. I could hear Derek getting up, “Don’t worry I like ‘em feisty! See you in Saturday Derek!” You smiled as the guys’ jaws dropped at your words.
If you want any other guys feel free to message me! Also first post! Yay!
Remember that time there was a flareup in the great peanut allergy war–there have been many, but let’s say Jezebel 2009–and the Jezebel commenters came out in legions, “when I was a kid in value-neutral 1980s America there was no such thing as a peanut allergy and my junior high never made me do anything to accommodate my sick or disabled classmates ever, and look how great I turned out, me Jezebel commenter”? This is exactly like that except that Jack Halberstam is arguing not only that the “peanut allergy” is a conspiracy engineered by the US government of whiny babies (as opposed to the US government of…Jimmy Carter, peanut farmer) but that people who ask to not have peanuts around them are individualist fascists pissing on Jack Halberstam’s individual peanut spark, and on top of that Jack Halberstam is actually receiving a paycheck from a peanut corporation.

I translated it from Chinese (but also checked with the original, that’s why it took times)
Not much to say. Enjoy!
The Path of 2588 days
I have been roughly thinking about graduation since 2-3 years ago
- The day of graduation is coming close, what’s your mood right now?
very refreshed. From activities I’ve involved so far, I feel refreshed the most. Everyone around me told me that “your expression have changed” “your face looks softer” I guess my refreshing feeling came out much more than I thought.
- Is it like you have done everything that should be done?
That’s right. There’s still graduation concert, so I couldn’t feel like I have already done it all. But however, as an idol, of course, I have a feeling that “I have done everything I wanted to”
- Let’s sort out timeline before graduation a bit. Exactly when did you think about graduating, since when you officially decided?
I started to think about it 2-3 years ago, vaguely thought about “what should I do after this?” that’s the beginning. Then kept thinking about it little by little. Around 1 year ago, I went to discuss with Akimoto-san “I think like this” then which direction I should proceed, when I should graduate something like that. But at first, he had never granted me approval until recently that he agreed to it.
- What is the reason for graduation?
Since I joined the group, I have always wanted to get involve with acting. Being in the group up until now, I have been gathering many kinds of experience. I could also gain many useful experiences and emotions. However, within myself, when I felt I have already done it all, I started to think about how I can absorb some other things. So, I gradually had an idea of “let’s get to the world outside” and “Graduation”
- SKE48 is almost 7 years now, if you could pick, for example, Best 5 memories, what would it be?
I couldn’t. Saying “I couldn’t” is a very boring answer *laugh* actually, I didn’t mean it like that but I mean all the memories are special. I couldn’t pick which one is most impressive, could be my graduation concert. Right now there’s nothing in particular, that day and the first debut day might be a huge part of ‘SKE48’ memories in my mind. But if you are talking about happy moments, there are lots!
- If you take a look back, right now, Is there any point that seems “from then on, I have changed” like a turning point?
Turning point, huh…being transferred to Team E is the turning point. That was timely with the time I started to think about graduation. Before then, I was mainly with 1st gen in Team S, everyone has individuality. We just gathered those individual and set the team up with unity. It was ok to do whatever you like. But being in this kind of surroundings suddenly changed to being surrounded by juniors, also got promoted as leader. That made me think “What can we do so our juniors will be better?” and I became very careful “right now, it’s not ok for me to do like this (T/N: do whatever she likes)” it was such a big thing for me. On the other hand, I realized how much I had been spoiled by everyone while I was in Team S. I really loved being a mess *laugh*
Come to think about it, getting in Team E had helped me grow as a person. Juniors really helped me a lot.
- So, let’s get back to the day you announced graduation. That day, on Jun.10, morning issue of Nikkan Sport revealed the big news that you would officially announce graduation at that night’s ANN.
When I saw that big picture on the cover, it really made me shocked. But because of this report, many people paid attention to listen. Otherwise, there might be some fans that missed this abrupt graduation announcement. So, we should also thank them (the newspaper). In broadcast, I had plenty of time to express my words. Compared to Theatre, this allowed me to reach more people. Besides, it might be all the words that I want to say on the last day, Aug.31.
Can’t take “Mae no Meri” as her own song
- For Rena-chan, the last SKE48 single “Mae no Meri” MV also starts with ANN on that day.
Yes. That filming may remain for the rest of my life *laugh*, fortunately, I wore good make-up. Normally, when I host ANN, I used to go without any make-up.
- Please introduce a bit about “Mae no Meri”
Many people around me said “it’s a good song”, I really appreciate that. But, there’re also a lot of people, including members, view it as “my last song”. I, on the contrary, don’t think like that. I think it’s SKE48’s 18th single. Hope everyone could take it as SKE48’s single as it has been.
- By the way, this is the first time you are the solo center.
Yes. Really sorry, this is also not the answer you expected…*laugh*
- Let’s get a bit more lively…*laugh*
Fans also told me like this “why you look so indifferent”. I am really happy that fans are happy for me being center. I am also glad being center. But while SKE48’s activities continue on, especially around this recent year, I clearly understand that I am still myself no matter where I stand, ones who want to see you still see you no matter where you stand. I believe that no matter you are standing in the third row or in the middle of the first row, for me, there’s no difference. Now, my trust in audiences is stronger than ever before. This is because I had been in various positions in AKB48, in the third row, in the back row, but back in SKE48, I am in the front…because I have experienced this so I have this kind of thought. Originally, this song should cover all precious things in my SKE career. But, in my mind, I still feel that it’s not only my song, it must also be the song that everyone can continue on to sing. Like even I’m not here anymore, it must still be performed in any live. When I thought about this, I just can’t take it as my own. That’s why even though I am the center, and it’s also my last single, but I don’t want to get too full of myself. I hope everyone can view this song unemotionally.
- I see. But “Mae no Meri” lyrics, Akimoto-sensei wrote it from Rena-chan’s image, right?
No, I don’t think so. Sorry I say like this, but I think any hard-working person would be like in that lyrics. So, I just perform this song while holding the thought that it can be applied to any member. If this song can make anyone who listen to it think “I’ll do my best!!”, that’d be the happiest for me.
- Please tell us your opinion about the MV, Is there anything you want to talk?
This time we went to an island in Okinawa, it was intentional surprised party for me. Everyone went ahead of me, I went there the day after ANN. From the morning, everyone started preparing together and then I arrived on the island. Though there are only few minutes of appearance, it was actually cut from the footage that had taken quite a number of hours. This MV show member’s natural posture very well.
- Coupling song “2588 nichi”, it was created for Rena-chan!!
That’s right, this song is for me. “2588 nichi” stands for the number of days from the first day I joined SKE48 to Aug.31 the last day I graduate. It’s a song written about me from Akimoto-sensei’s perspective. I want to pass my feeling on to members, express it to my fans, as in the lyrics. How should I describe it…I really love this song. My favorite is the lyrics. The theme of withered flower, like the flower’s root already withered, but there’s nothing to be sad, it withered only to bloom again next year. My graduation, you may take it as 1 withering time for an idol, but at the same time, it also means “in order to bloom again, you need to prepare from now on, so it’s alright”. The MV is like a flashback to places I’ve been since I joined SKE48. I went to the theatre and when I sang this song, I bursted into tears. In fact, I didn’t intend to cry, but my tears suddenly poured down. I felt like I performed another graduation stage alone *laugh* It’s very beautiful.
- Say, after Rena-chan graduates, the position in “Mae no Meri” would be vacant. Is there anyone you would like to stand there?
Umm, there isn’t. Answer like this may be a bit cold, it’s not about who I want, but I wish that everyone would strive for this position. I think if it’s like this, there’d be a sense of competition. It’d enhance the group level. I am looking forward to it.
- The kenkyusei stage which composed of 7th gen members + 2nd gen draft members has also started. I can scent the new wind is coming.
Everyone is so cute, so shining, overflowed with energy. Fans also sense that and look forward to it. So, if they can continue on with the thought “we will pave our way by ourselves!!” such a strong will like this, the new form of SKE48 would be born. This can also allow them to develop rapidly. I really am looking forward to it.
Really love stage play and movies, aim for the silver screen.
- Let’s talk about after graduation. The direction is to be an actress (役者), right?
I’d like to do acting, so I hope that I could try my best doing it.
- Do you have the goal of being an actress (役者)?
Rather than thinking about how I want, I would say the one I really admire is Aoi Yu-san. Recently, I also think that Tsumabuki Satoshi-san can play a lot of different characters, compared to his image before, it’s 180 degree(totally) changed. With acting skill like that or being able to switch (characters) that much is so impressive. I think I can study from them while watching them.
- Is there any character you would like to try right now? I think your image fits with novelty-type (weird/newtype) character.
Nowadays, there are a lot of this kind of characters…although it’s worth acting, but I would like to try many different roles. My acting skill is not that outstanding, so I think I would head on with each and every character I got.
- Stage plays, movies, dramas…there are many kinds, which one do you particularly want to try?
I want to try it all, but I especially like stage plays and movies. Stage plays need a lot of practice before performance, the atmosphere in each performance is also different. You can’t act totally the same in two stages. I really am interested to this point. I had experienced in movies filming once, I think the time is very dense. You need to stuff the entire story you want to tell within 1 hour or 2, packed full with many contents, however, I was very happy being able to act well in the movie. And of course, I also really love movies, that’s why I also wish to be on silver screen as well.
- It seems you ever talked about travelling to historical places.
Ahhh…I want to see ancient tombs. Regrettably, I still don’t have a chance to go there. I have a lot of things I want to do after graduation, one of them is travelling to see ancient historical remains. And also tea catechins!!
- That is concerning body shape, maintaining the shape, isn’t it?
I absolutely have to take care of it. I need to be able to wear graduating dress beautifully, so I am concerned about my shape. But I also got teased like “are you a bride?” *laugh*
- The time for graduation concert at Toyota stadium is coming closer, may I ask how you want it to be like?
When I got asked “what do you want to do?”… For the whole live, there are many things I want to do. Like “this song have never been performed for sometimes now” or “It would be fun if we perform this song like this” etc. I’m still a bit unclear for myself. Instead of me saying want to do this or that, it would be better to leave it all to staff-san.
- You would cry, right?
I won’t cry *laugh*
- No. No. Would you cry?
I won’t. I hate being damped. It would be good to end it brightly like “haha it was fun” “see ya!“ I think ending like this would be more fun.
- Stage on Aug.31 will be the last performance. Is there any difference between performance in concert and in the theater?
I want this stage to be the end. “Te wo Tsunaginagara” stage’s setlist is really great, “Tooku ni Itemo” at the ending is so beautiful. In the concert before then, I want to create memories together with members and fans, but on Aug.31, it’s the time with Team E that I want to cherish. I
really am a strange person. I even said that they don’t have to hold farewell ceremony in the last stage, but I got rejected *laugh*. So, I hope it would be a good farewell.
- Lastly, please say something to the people who are supporting SKE48’s Matsui Rena.
After graduation announcement, I became more realized how much fans concern for my sake. I am so grateful to them. I think joining SKE48 is really a good thing. Have been trying hard until now is really great, too. If graduated members couldn’t do their best, it would make juniors feel uneasy. So over this time, I wish my being could be something juniors can look up to. I want to try my best that fans could say “that graduation is so good”. And I also wish that I could repay everyone who comes to support me as an actress (役者).
