[KOR/ENG LYRICS] Outro: Her by BTS

Korean

The world is a complex
We wus lookin’ for love
나도 그냥 그런 사람들 중 하나였어
진짜 사랑인지 뭔지
믿지도 않으면서
습관처럼 사랑하고 싶다 지껄였던
But I found myself
The whole new myself
나도 헷갈려 대체 어떤 게 진짜 난지
널 만나고 내가 책이란 걸 안 걸까
아님 니가 내 책장을 넘긴 걸까
Damn
어쨌든 난 네게 최고의 남자길 원해
아마 당연해 넌 내게
이 세계 그 자체였기에
죽을 거면 꼭 나와 같이 죽겠다던 때
니가 원하는 내가 되기로
God I swore to myself
So many complex
But I’m lookin’ for love
가짜 나라도 좋아 니가 안아준다면
넌 내게 시작이자 결말 자체니까
니가 날 끝내주라

내 모든 wonder
에 대한 answer
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

내 모든 wonder
에 대한 answer
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

어쩌면 나는
너의 진실이자 거짓일지 몰라
어쩌면 당신의 사랑이자 증오
어쩌면 나는 너의 원수이자 벗
당신의 천국이자 지옥
때론 자랑이자 수모
난 절대 가면을 벗지 못해
이 가면 속의 난
니가 아는 걔가 아니기에
오늘도 make up to wake up
and dress up to mask on
당신이 사랑하는 내가 되기 위해
당신이 사랑하는 걔가 되기 위해서
그 좋아하던 XX도 끊었지
그저 당신을 위해서
싫어하는 옷도 과도한 메이크업도
당신의 웃음과 행복이
곧 내 행복의 척도
이런 내가 이런 내가
당신의 사랑 받을 자격 있을까
언제나 당신의
최고가 되기 위해 노력을 해
이런 모습은 몰랐음 해

내 모든 wonder
에 대한 answer
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

내 모든 wonder
에 대한 answer
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

늘 그랬듯이 mask on
환호로 날 반겨주는 her
그대만의 별
아무 일 없이 빛나면서도
가장 빛나야 할 시간에
난 mask off
Lost star
내 짐을 내려놔 어둠을 즐겨
죽일 듯이 쏴대는
조명도 없으니 ye
그저 맘 가는 대로
감 닿는 대로 날 안 잡는 대로
Tick tock the dark is over
다시 너의 최고가 되기 위해
내 자신을 붙잡어
사랑은 사람을 미치게 해
그래 미친놈의 각오
가장 나다운 식에 대입을 하고
전부인 너를 위해
내가 내린 해답을 줘
그걸 사랑해주는 너
그로 인해 노력하는 나
니 존재로 새로운 의미를 찾고
빛을 내는 밤
난 알았어 어둠이 끝나도
내겐 넌 아침이란 걸
You woke me up

내 모든 wonder
에 대한 answer
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

내 모든 wonder
에 대한 answer
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

English

The world is a complex
We wus lookin’ for love
I was also just another one of those people
Whether it’s real love or something
I didn’t even believe in
I babbled on like a habit about how I want to love
But I found myself
The whole new myself
I’m also confused about what in the world is the real me
Did I realize I was a book after meeting you
or did you turn my page
Damn
Anyways I want to be the best man for you
It’s probably certain since you
were the world itself to me
When you said that if you died you’d die with me
I would become the me that you want
God I swore to myself
So many complex
But I’m lookin’ for love
I’m fine with my fake self if it means you’ll hug me
Since you’re my beginning and ending itself
Finish me

The answer
To all my wonder(s)
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

The answer
To all my wonder(s)
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

Perhaps I am
Your truth and lie
Perhaps your love and hate
Perhaps I am your friend and enemy
Your heaven and hell
Sometimes pride and humiliation
I can never take off the mask
Because the me behind this mask
Is not the one you know
Make up to wake up today too
And dress up to mask on
In order to become the me that you love
In order to become the one that you love
I quit the XX that I liked so much
Just for you
The clothes I hate and excessive makeup
Your smile and happiness
Are the scale of my happiness
This me this me
Do I deserve to receive your love
I always try
to become your best
I hope you don’t know this side of me

The answer
To all my wonder(s)
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

The answer
To all my wonder(s)
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

Like always mask on
Her who welcomes me with cheers
Your own star
Shining without any trouble
The time when I have to shine the most
I take my mask off
Lost star
I put down my burden I enjoy the darkness
There is no light that
shoots like a killer
Just as your heart goes
The way it feels, as you don’t hold me
Tick tock the dark is over
In order to become your best again
I hold onto myself
Love makes a person go insane
A madman’s resolution
I insert myself into the equation that is most like me
For all of you
I give the answer that I got
The you who loves that
Through that I make an effort
Through your existence I find new meaning
The night that shines
I knew even though the darkness ended
That you are my morning
You woke me up

The answer
To all my wonder(s)
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

The answer
To all my wonder(s)
I call you her, her
Cuz you’re my tear, tear

MAD HEAD LOVE

Day 05 - A song that has a new meaning to you every time you hear it

MAD HEAD LOVE - Kenshi Yonezu

We’ve become slaves under a curse,
Never able to forget that it must be, must be love
In the clutches of foolishness, there’s no return
Yes, I’m with you in the depths of carnage,
In a fray of puncher and punchee!

So many times
She was told
I love you
Only to experience
A change of heart

So many times
He was told
No
When all he
Asked for
Was a simple
Yes

She built walls
Around her heart
Not allowing herself
To love
Or be loved
She feared love
In the past it
Had been given
Only to be taken away

He built walls
Around his heart
Not allowing himself
To love
Or be loved
He feared rejection
In the past
Nobody had gave him
A chance

But somehow
These two
Overcame their fears
Setting each other free

And in all our
Faults
Mistakes
And insecurities

We somehow
Found
Something
That made us all
A little bit
Happier

- an old favorite (T.)

Ted Bundy. Richard “the Night Stalker” Ramirez. “Hillside Stranglers” Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono.

They’re all famous killers, and they have another thing in common: All four got married in prison, well after being convicted of their notorious crimes.

But who would marry a serial killer and why?

Sheila Isenberg, author of “Women Who Love Men Who Kill,” spoke with dozens of women who had relationships with murderers. She found that there are two primary groups of people who end up with murderers: those who fall in love with “ordinary murderers,” believing they see the “true” good side of the killer, and those who start relationships with notorious, tabloid-headlining murderers because they are drawn to the spotlight.

“They want to be infamous too. When Scott Peterson was sent to prison, he got marriage proposals by the bucket before he even got to the prison. They know that if they get involved with these men their name or maybe their picture will get in the paper,”

Isenberg said.Charles Manson was recently engaged to be married, both the Menendez brothers got married in jail and so did the “Hillside Strangler” duo.And it’s not just women. Susan Atkins, a member of the Manson Family who got a life sentence for her role in the Sharon Tate-LaBianca murders, married two different men in prison. 

Blinded by love

In her research, Isenberg found that many in both groups cling to the belief that their convicted boyfriends and husbands are, in fact, innocent.“They were deluded that the man had not committed the crimes,” Isenberg said.

She points to women like Carol Ann Boone, who began her relationship with Ted Bundy while he was on trial for two murders and three assaults at Florida State University, married him and had his child. Bundy later confessed to 30 murders.
Boone, who had worked with Bundy at the Washington state Department of Emergency Services, said she “liked Ted immediately” and testified for him as a character witness because she felt like he was being “railroaded.”
It wasn’t until years after his conviction that she eventually became convinced of his guilt and ended their relationship.

Doreen Lioy married Richard Ramirez, the “Night Stalker” who killed more than a dozen people. In 1997, said that she doesn’t mind if people think she’s crazy. “I just believe in him completely,” Lioy said. “In my opinion, there was far more evidence to convict O.J. Simpson." 

In cases where the person was found guilty of only one murder, Isenberg said the women often turn to mitigating circumstances – that the person was on drugs, for example, or that it was an accident that does not represent the person’s real character.

description: It was everything, from his tattoos, to his touches, to the way sweat rolled down his neck as he strummed into his guitar on stage; everything about him completely enthralled you. So why are you now, two and a half years later, on a train to Seoul, telling a complete stranger the recollection of how you became fated to forever have scars on all of your future hearts due to the happiness, but most of all the pain, that came along with falling in love with Jeon Jungkook.

In fall it was lust

In winter it was young love

In spring it was true love

In summer it was heartbreak

 

Fall

The blades of grass dipped within the spaces of your fingers as you laid on the ground underneath the school tree. The shade covered your body allowing a relaxing atmosphere to take over; well that is until he gets there.

You suddenly feel yourself being pulled up to your feet, causing you to crash into something firm. When you open your eyes you’re met with a sly smirk hidden behind the now familiar glint of his lip ring.

“Jungkook, what’re you doing here, you’re supposed to be sick?” You give him a skeptical look, but he’s not having any of it and he quickly pulls you into his embrace.

“I was, but now I’m not, and I wanted to see you.” He smiles as he drops his hands down to your hips to keep you in place.

“You’re gonna get in so much shit if they see you.” He was wearing jeans and a plain black t-shirt, nothing even close to the school uniform.

“Well then we better get out of here before they see me.” He whispers as he dips his head down pressing his lips to yours, enveloping you in his addictive presence. You begin to mold your mouth to his as his fingers dig into your sides. You’ve only been going for a few seconds when you feel him tug you forward, causing you to reluctantly break away.

spones-in-my-bones  asked:

Imagine McCoy gently grabbing Spocks wrist to ground him and help him calm down after something very unsettling happens. Spock says he's fine( McCoy KNOWS he's not). McCoy's equally unsettled, and not sure if holding Spock's wrist is really to help Spock or himself. Spocks not sure either, so he doesn't pull away. They help calm each other, just staying like that and not needing to say a word. Imagine after time has passed and they've calmed down, they still don't pull away, and are now closer.

Imagine Bones matching his breathing to the pulse in Spock’s wrist. His grip tightens when he feels Spock start to panic again, and Spock just focuses on Bones’ breath. They calm down each other. 

Dear Spontaneity, How I’ve Missed You

I want to be challenged,
I want to be fascinated,
I want to be thrilled.
I want to be moved to tears
by unique and wondrous
types of Beauty
I have yet to experience.

I deserve more.
We deserve more, 
than the mundane of this daily routine
we have found ourselves
trapped so deeply in.

Please take my hand,
and lead me somewhere
far away from this sorry town.
Let’s discover
enchanting intimacy, 
and get drunk on our dreams together.
Let’s create a night
So full of hope
it brings out the sincerity
that has been
missing.

I want to dance with you
on colorful city rooftops.
And celebrate Us at a bright karaoke bar, 
downtown in some place
we can’t even pronounce.
I want to sing with you
at the top of my lungs
until I can’t breathe,
and you are too inebriated
to walk straight.

I want to drive up mountains with you
in the dark of night,
beyond the beaten paths.
And at the top,
make passionate love
in the backseat of your car.
A perfect crystal night sky,
and sex too spectacular for words.
Doesn’t it sound wonderful?

Then we’ll talk
and laugh
and cry
under the gentle stars for hours
as the moon
listens softly.

I think I could find
a forever in you,
if we left the ordinary behind
and found time
to experience life
for Real.

If we learned how to
live fully
and love fully
with genuine intensity.
Instead of wasting our days
in front of a television,
with the same blankets piled upon us
on that same couch
with the same people
and the same, jaded conversations
every goddamn night.

I am so tired
of the predictable drinks
and worn out games
and familiar places.
I am so tired
of not living in the moment,
but through phone screens instead.
Darling, we are wasting away like this.

So let’s go to that park after midnight,
(You know the one, where we shared our first kiss)
And swing until our hearts race.
Let’s get high on each other tonight.
And find ourselves,
By going back to our beginnings.

  • hercules might not carry a bag, but he honestly has anything you could ever ask for just in his pockets. need a phone charger? he’s gotcha. bandaids? yeah. gloves? yep. bubble wrap? mm-hmm. he makes for an excellent Parent Friend! he’s the one who also lets everyone just come and hangout at his house. it’s pretty cool of him! he goes long periods without making any puns, but whenever one of the others says one (usually john) he’s quick to start firing them off in rapid succession, and can go on for an hour or two or five.
    • you can always vent to him ! also, if you’re a really close friend of yours, he might actually open up to you!
      • for all that he talks, he never really reveals more about himself other than the standard instruction… he’s one of those friends that, when you take a step back, you realize that you don’t actually know that much about him,,
    • if you mess up on something or accidentally hurt the feelings of one of the others, hercules will make sure that the problem gets solved,,, he doesn’t want anyone to split the friend group nor does he like drama
  • lafayette is that one friend who likes to ask you for favors constantly, but you can’t ever really dislike him for it because he always does his best to make life easier for you,, he likes to playfully tease you and the others and may bond with you over being salty about someone / something,, he’s got info on everyone,,, 
    • if you’re the type to make big, wild plans about anything, he’ll usually tag along and support you so long that it doesn’t get either of you hurt,, he’s your partner in crime !!
      • (and if you ask him for any favors, he’s glad to do them for you!!)
    • if you ever get into any hobby or game or media–lafayette also supports you there !! he’ll probably join you and will be three times as enthusiastic about whatever it is that you like
    • like hercules, you can tell he really likes you if he shares what’s going on in his mind!!
  • alex has lots of friends but only a few close ones,, if he’s listening to you talk, it’s a clear sign that he thinks highly of you–you don’t even have to fight for his attention, ‘cause if you’re close enough to him, when you speak? he listens and absorbs your every word (he’s one of those sainted people who will help suggest a word or thought if you can’t think of one)
    • he might love you as a friend, but he’s super competitive and you can bet that he’ll laugh happily if he wins over you in any game, ever,,, he might flaunt the victory in your face but he means it with love
      • in a similar sense, he will reply with any typos you make and might just make them into inside jokes
      • (you have so many inside jokes with him you can honestly just talk purely in them,, s’like your own language!)
    • a lot of your friendship with him is playful bantering–it’s lots of fun when you’re in the same room as him with lafayette
  • john’s a protective friend through and through, and if he gets wind that you’ve ever been picked on or bullied you can expect him to Get Mean about the other person,, just because he’s a sweetheart for you doesn’t mean he’ll be the same towards anyone who’s wronged you,,,, he doesn’t forgive easily and if you’re trying to make amends with someone who’s previously hurt you, you can expect him to flat out inform them that he’s watching. and he doesn’t trust them.
    • he’s really good for late night talks,,, he doesn’t often give out advice but when he does it’s pretty useful !! john will often just end up listening and comforting you if you vent to him, might also exchange a similar experience that he’s had! he’s not afraid to share !
    • he likes to steal your food (with permission!! give it once and you’ve created a food stealing monster) 
    • he’s quick to become upset and while he holds grudges, past a certain point of friendship with him, he becomes more forgiving and more likely to be sympathetic towards you,,
      • in general, you don’t really have to worry about him being upset at you for too long because if you already know the others then it’s a clear sign john wants you as a friend for life. (plus, herc is always quick to sort things out)
  • most of your time is spent at hercules’ house, each of you doing separate activities (or maybe two or three of you are playing a game with the others watching). but generally, a lot of the time in your friendship with each other is just… enjoying each other’s presence, really!

9 Reasons Why the New “Beauty and the Beast” is Better Than the 1991 Original

I know, such a crazy notion, but as a die-hard fan of the original 1991 animated classic, as a young woman who adored Belle and looked up to her as a young girl, and as someone who loves Disney, I truly believe that while the cartoon classic is phenomenal, the new live-action reimagining is astoundingly better. Here are my reasons why:

1. Back-story 

In the original I always had SO MANY QUESTIONS. Mainly–how in the hell did a village less than a few miles away not know that a giant castle that once was home to a wealthy and powerful Prince was RIGHT THERE? Who was the Prince ruling over if the villagers had no clue this place and this beast existed? Why were the servants cursed if they weren’t the ones who turned the old woman away? Why was the Prince so cold-hearted, arrogant, and shallow? The prologue amongst other scenes in the 2017 film address all these questions.

We learn that the enchantress placed a spell on the villagers to make them forget about the Prince and everyone in the castle. This explains how no one knew it was there, and also the sense of lawlessness in the village, because if their ruler–the Prince–vanished, and no one remembered him then whose in charge? Gaston? No wonder it’s a mess there.

We also learn why Beast is so cold-hearted, we learn his mother died when he was young and his father was emotionally abusive, and raised him to be a spoiled, arrogant, shallow shell of a man. We also learn that the servants witnessed the emotional abuse of this child and did nothing to stop it–deeming them worthy of punishment for being so cowardly and selfish as to not help the Prince when he was young.

Now someone asked me why the hell Chip and the dog were cursed too, they didn’t do anything. My theory is the curse was really only taking effect inside the ballroom, all the servants were in there for the ball, and in the opening sequence we see Chip running in to see what’s the matter and Mrs. Potts running after him–terrified. I believe she sensed the danger in the ballroom, and was trying to save Chip from meeting the same fate as the rest of them, and ultimately–she failed. The Maestro and Madame de Garderobe’s dog was in the ballroom as well, so I guess he was just unlucky also.

We also learn that Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts had spouses who must’ve been away from the castle when the spell was cast, causing them tragically (at least in Mrs. Potts case) to be forgotten by their loves.


2. Belle the Feminist Activist

It was never made clear in the cartoon film that it wasn’t just ‘odd’ that Belle liked reading it was ‘odd’ that a low-born woman in 18th century France even COULD read. It wouldn’t occur to children (it certainly didn’t to me) that her reading in public is practically illegal and worthy of public shame. In the cartoon it was just all ‘lol books are lame,’ In the live action not only does Belle not have a town bookshop to go to (because seriously, why would a town of mostly illiterate people who hate reading have a bookshop) she is merely friends with the Priest who owns less than a dozen books. THAT IS ALL SHE HAS. And then she teaches another young girl how to read and is publicly shamed for it, and still doesn’t back down, because she believes that women deserve the same rights as men. 

In the beginning sequence of the town, we literally see boys marching into school while the girls are stuck doing the wash. Belle also refuses to waste valuable reading time on the laundry–so girl INVENTS A WASHING MACHINE! 

When Belle gets to the castle, she tricks the Beast into taking her instead. She tries savvy ways to escape. She never flings herself onto the bed and cries like in the cartoon. She fights every damn second.

In the end she doesn’t even change out of her ballgown to go save her father, she just hops on her horse and goes. 

Belle was ALWAYS strong, but this 2017 Belle is formidable and a force to be reckoned with.


3. Tragic love

In the 1991 film, the wardrobe was a goofy character there for laughs, as was Plumette. Also, Lumiere and Plumette’s relationship in the cartoon was creepy and borderline sexual harassment. It was pure lust. In this version, they are madly in love and Lumiere clearly cares about her so much. 

We also see Madama de Garderobe and Maestro Cadenza (a brilliant new character) who are also madly in love, but unlike Lumiere and Plumette can’t even be with one another during the curse due to the stationary limitations as the objects they’ve been cursed to be. By the time Madame finally makes her way downstairs to be with Maestro it is too late, the curse is taking away their life. The moment when Lumiere realizes he has lost Plumette, and where Maestro realizes he has lost Madame, add a heart-breaking very raw and real layer to the story. It’s not just about Belle and Beast, these servants aren’t just funny objects that talk, they were people too. They had a life and loves and that was stolen from them just as it was the Beast.

4. Papa and Belle’s Motherless Backstory

In the cartoon, Belle’s father is simply a goofy character. He’s a blithering idiot who makes pointless inventions. In this version, he is an artist who had to leave his plagued wife behind in Paris in order to save their only daughter. We see him live with the pain of this everyday. We see him and Belle have a beautiful, genuine relationship. We see him fight whole-heartedly for Belle. We see him give her courage and strength to never back down from who she is.

And we learn something that the cartoon NEVER gave us–we learn of Belle’s mother. Lost to the plague when Belle was a babe, with nothing but a rose-shaped rattle to remember her by, that her Father captured in a painting. Explaining why Belle always asks for one. We learn that Belle–like her father and mother–is willing to sacrifice everything for the ones that she loves.


5. Classic Fairytale Homage 

While the cartoon held almost no remnants of the original fairytale written over 500 years ago, or the original French film made in the 40s, the 2017 version pays homage to both. 

Belle asking for simply a rose from her father’s travels, as well as Beast and his servants preparing Maurice a fire and dinner when he arrives at the castle, but Beast only growing angry when Maurice steals the rose–is taken directly from the pages of the fairytale. 

We also see another fun easter egg reference to the french film: when Maurice walks up to the door–he sees the front lantern is being held by what looks like a human arm made of stone, which in the French film, was an incredibly iconic scene when Belle walks through the dungeon to find her father.


6. A Real Antagonist

Cartoon Gaston is again, a 2D character there to provide some conflict at the end. The 2017 version shows him as the epitome of prejudice, hatred and sexism. He expresses many times throughout the film the the sees Belle as prey for him to hunt. He leaves Maurice for dead in the wood. The lyrics of the mob song were even changed to include his verse “but I know they all will follow, for in times like this they do just as I say.” Gaston is the scariest Disney villain because people like him exist in real-life. Gaston and his angry mob of blind-followers provide a tangible conflict outside of the curse that the cartoon simply did not provide.


7. A Shared Love of Reading

It never made a damn bit of sense in the 1991 cartoon and the Broadway musical adaptation–that Beast was illiterate. If ANYONE during the time could read it sure as hell would’ve been the wealthy Prince. All aristocracy could read and most men knew how to read a little. So yeah, a Prince could read.

So the fact that he and Belle share a love of reading adds and element to their friendship bred romance that didn’t exist prior to this reimagining.


8. New Music

What would Beauty and the Beast be without those iconic numbers like: ‘Belle,’ ‘Gaston,’ ‘Be Our Guest,’ and of course, the title song–made famous by Angela Lansbury– ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ When Broadway adapted the cartoon film years ago, they added some songs of their own, such as the Broadway-Buff-Beloved number– ‘Home.’ So naturally it would’ve been easy for the writers and directors of this film to just buy the rights to those songs and call it a day. Instead we got 5 gorgeous new numbers, and 1 new reprise. We got the opening ‘Aria,’ sung at the Prince’s beginning ball by Madame de Garderobe, we get ‘How Does a Moment Last Forever,’ sung by Maurice, singing about remembering his late wife. Then we later get the Montmartre of this song sung by Belle as she recalls the lost ‘Paris of her childhood,’ in an all new scene where her and Beast use a magic book to travel to the attic where she lost her mother. We get ‘Days in the Sun,’ where we hear from the servants and the pain they feel as well living under the curse. We get, ‘Evermore,’ the torrid, angst-filled lamenting ballad Beast sings when he let’s Belle go. And lastly, we get a never before heard reprise of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ sung by Mrs. Potts ( Emma Thompson) at Belle and Beast’s wedding. These news songs add more passion to the film. (Evermore is my personal favorite)

9. Gay Lefou

It’s about damn time. Cartoon Lefou is definitely alluded to being in-love with Gaston, but Josh Gads blatantly homosexual portrayal was brilliant, and as a member of the queer community–made me so happy.

Yes, in ‘Frozen’ we got the one throw-away joke about Oaken being gay, but it was 0.5 seconds long and barely delved into. In this 2017 film, Lefou makes many sexual innuendos towards Gaston, publicly cuddles Gaston, and in the end dances happily with another queer fellow at Belle and Beast’s wedding, and this is an amazing step forward for the Disney franchise to start having openly queer characters in their films.


SO THERE YOU HAVE IT! My 9 reasons why the 2017 Beauty and the Beast is better than the 1991 original. I still love the original and it will always have a fond place in my heart–but when movie nights of the future come round, I will opt to put on the 2017 version instead, and experience a Tale as Old as Time, retold for a new generation.

And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.
