//Jimin found about jungkook’s radio program one night after a really long day at work. he usually put on his earbuds and blasted loudly his favorite artists but that night his ipod had run out of battery and he didn’t have any music stored on his phone so his only option was to tune in the radio. and oh boy does he not regret it at all.

//jungkook has  melodic voice, sweet and that exudes warmth but at the same time is deep and boyish, really charismatic. no wonder he works at a radio station.

//the program varies from listening to jungkook’s song recommendations to reading letters from fans asking for advice. the host can go from a total dork that tells the most ridiculous jokes to a sweet caring boy trying to help a lost soul.

//jimin finds himself listening to his show every single night from then on. he has the show tuned in while his night shift at the convenience store, which always helps him overcome the night with a better attitude.

//taehyung laughs at him, says he’s obsessed. Jimin likes to say he just knows how to appreciate the good things in life.

//Jungkook opens about himself sometimes, and jimin learns he’s a young man -but slightly older than him- that has struggled his own in life as many others and uses his experiences to give advice to his listeners. Jimin loves to hear those stories, feels like jungkook is opening up to him only and not to hundreds of anonymous people that listen to him as well.

//he’s tempted to call, talk directly with jungkook those nights the phones are opened to the spectators, but he knows he’s shy and would stumble with his words a lot. also, what is he supposed to say to jungkook? “oh hey i’m jimin, big fan of yours. i love your voice and i love you too, marry me?” nah, too creepy…. 

//so he simply sends letters to jungkook for the other to read. he usually shares his own struggles, tells jungkook how difficult is being for him to manage the student life, living on his own and have his family so far away. jungkook is always sweet, reassuring, tells JM to keep fighting for his dreams like he did some years prior, shares his own story so he can give jimin the will to keep going. jungkook tells JM they have a lot in common taking in consideration his letters, and jimin likes to think jungkook’s voice softens a bit while talking to him after reading his letters, and his heart stutters happily every time jungkook dedicates him a new song he’s found recently.

//it’s a sunday that finds jimin working a morning shift. he hates it, because not only he had to woke up really early, but he doesn’t have jungkook’s sweet voice helping go through the boredom.

//the good thing about it is that he can afford sit in a corner and read a book, or try to catch up with some work he had been delaying, since just some grannies come for some shopping.

//he’s immersed in one of the books he’s supposed to read for a report when someone enters the store. a young boy, dark hair and darker eyes. he’s pretty attractive, but the side glance and small smile he throws jimin when they lock gazes tells him he’s a bit shy. the boy strides to the farther aisles in silence, jimin focuses back on his books.

//”Hello,” says the boy and the single word has jimin’s head snapping towards him, it sounds slightly familiar. the boy raises an eyebrow but doesn’t say anything else.
“hello.” he answers, and starts charging everything without saying anything else.
“Thanks, have a good day.” he says once the other has paid and is about to leave. the boy smiles charmingly, sweet, and says:
“you too, thank you.” jimin stares a him because his voice sounds so so so familiar. 
“is something wrong?” asks the boy with confusion written all over his face and then everything clicks. 
“oh my fucking god, it’s you!” screams jimin, blushing immediately because holy shit it’s jungkook and holy shit he just screamed at jungkook
“uhm…. do we know each other?”
“no…I mean i do, i know you and this just sounds so creepy but omg im a fan- im so sorry.”
“oh….” jungkook’s face changes then, goes to confusion to realization and smiles once again at jimin. “you listen to my radio program?”
“Yeah…. i- i love you - your show”
“Wow, im glad. it’s always nice to know people like listen to me… thank you so much.”

//Jungkook starts coming to the store more often and jimin tries to play it cool every time, specially when jungkook is being friendly with him and starts a conversation. but they quickly fall into a more comfortable relationship, specially after Jimin confesses he’s JM and jungkook seems happy to know about it.

//jungkook is funny and nice outside of work also, manages to make jimin laugh without really trying. sometimes jungkook is the only one talking as jimin just smiles and nods, staring. because jimin likes jungkook’s soft voice, but likes even more his crooked smile and bunny teeth and the way he feels every time jungkook looks at him. and boy, he’s so in deep.

//they exchange phone numbers and start talking frequently. Sometimes jungkook texts him in the middle of a broadcast. it makes jimin feel special.

//”this song is dedicated to a friend of mine. we’ve become closer recently and im glad to have found such a nice person that fits so well in my life. so, ehm… jimin, i know you are listening- this song is for you”
Jimin tries not to scream in the middle of the store, but now that he thinks about it he’s alone so he squeals out loud out of happiness.

//”It was a beautiful song” says jimin over the phone, after deciding to call jungkook in a boost of braveness.
“Really? I’m glad. i found the artist recently and he really has beautiful songs. I thought you would like this one.”
“I loved it…”
“You know what it’s about?” asks jungkook, his voice soft and warm. for a second jimin forgets they are talking live on radio and there are hundreds of people listening to their conversation. “It’s a bout a new found love.”
“jimin, would it be too brave of me to ask you out on a date?”
“Are you serious?”
“totally…. I like you a lot JM”
“I would love to…”

//after that night jungkook receives a lot of letters asking for advice in love matters, because his way of confessing to jimin was cute and romantic and had all his fans squealing with feels. (jimin dowloaded the podcast to save it on his computer)

//jimin discovers dating a radio host is a bit embarrassing, specially when said host dedicates romantic songs to him or says out loud how much he loves him, but jimin wouldn’t have it any other way. (he loves calling to the program and talk to the other, sometimes embarrassing jungkook on live radio)

Hush Hush: Part 1/2

*This part is not for the light hearted. It contains suicidal references, self hate, harsh words, and much more. If you are sensitive to these topics, please DO NOT READ.*


Lance’s mental vision of himself had already been depleted as it was from the team’s comments, the fact that they kept going didn’t help.

The blue paladin managed to uphold a smiling face, and joyful facade.

He didn’t really have a choice.

Talking was his escape, his distraction from any thoughts that threatened his alluded mind.

Talk it off, focus on your words and not theirs.

Lance would escape the sounds in his skull by talking above them. He’d usually be awarded with a snappy comment to shut up, or a glare.

Don’t mind them, it’s not like they can make you shut up. And flirting around with Allura is fun.

But the more he did it, the more they started to get more and more annoyed.

Shiro even ordered him to remain silent at some point. It was shocking.

The black paladin had shouted the order with a harshness that he didn’t even use with Slav.

Lance had been shaken, a similar face as the one used when he was chastised​ by the Garrison head general. Iverson.

He hadn’t spoken to his leader, nor around him, for the rest of the day. Lance was terrified to.

On another day, Lance’s false confidence restored to mask the head space noise, Lance had decided to bicker around with Keith for the hell of it.

That, also, went horribly wrong.

The half-Galra boy had shoved Lance, told him to screw off somewhere else with people who would tolerate him.

Except, the thing was, no one tolerated Lance.

Pidge was seemingly unapproachable, always snapping at the Cuban, or ignoring his presence completely.

Hunk wouldn’t even have his attention, nor Coran. Even THEY were annoyed by his usual antics.

Everyone else reacted in similar ways.

Lance had been able to make a mental list in his head, every single way the team had told him to shut up.

They echoed in his head, slowly driving him into an unnoticed madness.

“Do you have an off button?”

“How is it humanly possible to talk that much?”

“Just because you have nothing better to do with your life than talk, doesn’t mean I am willing to waste mine, listening to you!”

“Do I need to pay ransom to get you to zip your mouth?”

Lance would retire to his room each evening, stay up all night, rocking slowly and would not allow himself to cry.

Crying made noise.

He started to go silent all together, only asking a question here and there. Sometimes he got an actual answer

Most times he didn’t even get to finish asking.

It was getting to the boy, and it was making very negative thoughts course through his brain.

If he was dead, he would make no noise at all. That would please everyone, wouldn’t it?

Maybe if he screamed loud enough, his vocal chords would fail and he’d become mute.

Lance constantly found his hand at his throat, the other stuff his mouth. He wanted to stop.

Slip a noose around I’m his neck to shut him up.

Put a knife under his throat to cut out the sound.

Stuff his mouth full of whatever he could find in Coran’s medical supply, render him unable to speak.

All of those sounded like excellent options, and the fuzzy noise in his head agreed.

But then there was the universe.

Lance needed to go on, because there were too many people to save. And he also knew that he had a job to do.

The blue paladin stood blankly now, away from the group. They had landed on a planet of a species who specialized in any form of medical work.

They had stopped here to obtain supplies.

Months of fighting evil Galran ships and bots would come with a lot of bandages.

He had snuck off, they were there for couple of days anyway. Of course, his absence went unnoticed.

And based on what he could hear being said between Paladins through his helmet, they assumed he was off to ‘…Bother another innocent race….’  

More comments about maybe Lance’s excessive talking was how Zarkon always found them.

Or that Voltron should defend everyone’s hearing, and horrible jokes if the like.

It made up Lance’s mind.

In the following days, they left the planet and we’re back in course throughout the universe to save whoever they could.

The break seemed to bring everyone back to spirits, no longer cramped within the castle with no breaks.

Hunk started to talk with Lance again, but the blue paladin would only a slight smile if anything.

Shiro would give the blue paladin praise every once in awhile, which Lance would not react to. That was the first thing that worried everyone.

Nearly a week had passed and their usually lively, talkative friend had gone radio silent.

At first they had thought​he was sick, a sore throat maybe. Then they suspected he was just tired.

But even Keith, who didn’t give hide nor hare about Lance most of the time, decided it was getting too unlike him.

So the red Paladin approached him about it.

Keith asked Allura for a pen and paper, it something like it, and offered them to Lance as he sat in the kitchen.

“Lance, the others are worried. Tell us what’s going on, write it down, something. For once, I want you to talk.” Keith said, sliding the paper over.

A sad smiled formed on the boys lips as he looked at Keith. It was a look of exhaustion, and pure… nothing.

With a delicate, calm hand, Lance finally started to write. It was a sad moment for him.

No one had noticed the faint white scar, magically healed, across his throat.

No one noticed that Lance was drinking more than usual, healing from the procedure.

Finally, he slid the paper back to Keith, who red the scribbles in blue ink.

You would never see someone go so pale, so quickly, the way Keith did in that moment.

The note read:

‘I didn’t want to annoy you anymore, so I had my vocal cords removed on the last planet.’

aph-awesomeprussia  asked:

What are the stages of drafts? I'm trying to write my own book but I dont know how to draft properly and I feel like I'm gonna be stuck in a gutter if I don't know

Yesssssssssssssss someone finally asked it!!!

I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to explain this and show everybody my inverted pyramid :D :D :D

I present, The Inverted Pyramid of Revising a Book

Now I’ll explain each section of the inverted pyramid:


  • This should be self-explanatory. You write the first draft. For novels, 75-150,000+ words of the world inside your head.


  • Go back and fix it all up. Did you tell the story you wanted to tell? Did you include scenes and events that add up to the conclusion you present?
  • Are there any unnecessary scenes you could delete, or scenes that are redundant to other scenes? Get rid of them. If this means entire chapters have to go, wave bye-bye.
  • Do your main characters have believable back stories and arcs, and do they act appropriately in character at all times?
  • Is there any point in time when your characters do something that they literally WOULD NOT DO? Change that up.


  • Now pay attention to the deeper aspects of the story. Delve into the world your characters live in. Do they react appropriately? Does any part of society influence them more than others?
  • What does your world look like? Delve into the setting. The cultures, the technology, the history.
  • Work with your secondary characters and how they interact with your main characters. What role do they serve overall? Does the main character’s journey affect them at all, or vice versa?
  • Tighten up plot points. Stay concise if possible.


  • Now that the major parts of your story have been patted down, you can begin focusing on the technical stuff. Start broad.
  • Do you have redundant sentences? Do you start multiple sentences the same way?
  • Throw in short sentences.
  • Drop the pronoun from the beginning of a sentence every now and then.
  • Use commas instead of ‘and’ if you find you use ‘and’ a lot.
  • Does the flow of sentences and paragraphs fit with the tone of the scene?
  • Chop sentences apart. Use quick, sharp words.
  • Or combine sentences and flowery language and soft words.


  • Now that you’ve really patted this thing down, find people willing to read your work (hopefully for free).
  • Ask them to point out inconsistencies. Are they confused by anything?
  • Beta readers can tell you when things are boring or exciting. They’ll laugh. They’ll fangirl. They’ll beg you for more chapters.
  • Your brain is soft from so much revising. Beta readers are fresh, and will pick out things you’ve glossed over from seeing it so many times.
  • Shake things up and host a video chat for you and your betas! It’s a great way to make friends :)


  • NOWWWWW you’ve finished all the major revisions and your story makes sense!!! All that’s left to do is get the broom and sweep it up (or the vacuum cleaner, or generate a black hole from the Large Hadron Collider to suck out all the errors because that’s super-effective**).
  • This is the nitty gritty stuff, and I highly recommend either forcing yourself to read really, really slow, or better yet, read your book out loud, start to finish.
  • You’ll trip up over misplaced commas and periods.
  • You’ll literally hear when a sentence is awkward.
  • Your brain will get confused when there’s a missing word.
  • Fill in the gaps, hammer down the boards, tidy up the place like you’ve got guests coming over.


  • OMG
  • OMG
  • OMG
  • Email the newspaper (I’ve appeared multiple times).
  • Email the local TV station (I’ve appeared on live TV).
  • Email book talk radio shows (I’ve had a Q&A for an hour on live radio).
  • ……..Marketing is hard.

I hope that helps!

N.B. **please do not ask CERN for permission to use the Large Hadron Collider to create black holes that suck out all the errors in your book. You’ll look silly, and you might destroy Earth in the process.

So many people think that practicing an art is a good way to make a living. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. I’m talking about singing in the shower, I’m talking about dancing to the radio, I’m talking about writing a poem to a friend.

Dan's liveshow summary:

-Talks about the use of ‘AF’, as in do you said AF out loud or as fuck, and he talks about ‘proper meme use’

-Wanted to tweet ‘RT if you’re pancake AF’ but isn’t hungry for RT’s so he never ended up doing it.

-Dan googled a vegan pancake recipe and thinks it sounds good
-Calls someone out on bullshit when they say they had 14 pancakes, and he had 3 pancakes and was full, so 14 would literally be impossible unless they were mini pancakes

-Dan apologizes for the selfie he took earlier, thinking he didn’t look good (even though he looked great)

-He has friends over to their flat planning to go running but they ended up just getting pizza and cookies instead the plan to exercise was ‘literally inverted’ and he says, ‘if you’re going to fail, fail in style’

-Someone in the chat asks: ‘Are you the guy off smosh???’ *insert dan laugh here*

-Dan talks about Phil’s last video, and says it probably was the worst idea ever but it was so funny and recommended everyone watched it and told everyone the link to watch it

-He thinks the photos for playlist were awful because the lighting was too dark
-loved universal and harry potter land, says, ‘if you are a harry potter nerd, jESUS YOU HAVE TO GO THERE!’

-He says the radio show special and asks everyone if they liked it, and seemed relieved when everyone said they liked it

-Says he hosted it and not him and Phil because it wasn’t a Dan and Phil thing, it was his own thing that he’s been planning since last november, it’s basically like his baby. 

-He edited the teaser video on the BBC youtube channel and he felt bad because it was practically harassing the other YouTubers so they would finally turn in their clips on time

-On the last day of playlist he could tell he was getting sick and tried to keep the illness inside of him before the radio special 

-When him and phil got back home 6am, he was practically dead and he says that someone from BBC was supposed to order a taxi for them at 1pm accidentally ordered it for 1am and he was really confused

-Dan says he doesn’t really want to make another minecraft video
-He apologizes for the #cookies #kittens #unicorns thing on twitter and he had like a major cringe attack and said it was such a terrible idea and didn’t want to say it was a bad idea on live radio

-Talks about the Grammys and glad that Kendrick Lamar got the award, and very happy for PTX and all sorts of people

-Very conflicted about the whole Kanye thing, seemed like what he did was a joke, but it was after when he did the interview and was super wasted, it was like ‘what are yoU SAYING???’ and loves Kanye but… *insert Dan sigh here*

-says Beyonce deserved the Grammy and just because she didn’t do everything, doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve it. It represents all the people that worked with her, as well.

-He talks about how much he loved Beck as a teenager and still loves him, but tbh nobody else knows who he is.

-Talks about the definition of the word ‘negative’ because he used it during his radio show, but he says it’s not bad to have negative opinions as long as you aren’t mean about it, and would rather have changed it to ‘rude’ or ‘unkind’

-On the topic of the photo war against Caspar: ‘you sneaky shit!’ and thought it was just really hilarious, and he wishes he saw Caspar more often.

-Dan says there was no need for angry petes rudeness, and defended Phil saying that it’s just a pair of headphones, it’s not really a big deal.

-He doesn’t really like All Time Low

-Dan doesn’t hate any celebrities, says it’s bad to harbor a lot of hatred and it probably isn’t healthy, but sometimes the things celebrities say can get his blood to boil if its really rude

-Dan says YouTube videos helps with his confidence and public speaking, but obviously isn’t confident with himself because he isn’t able to just go up to people and be confident about it, so it’s a different kind of confidence.
