You can hate the Disney sequels all you like

But I will defend the sequel characters with my life.

Kpop groups and their fandoms
  • <p> <b>Super Junior:</b> most ELFs have grown up with these legends, staying by their side through every obstacle and being their strength during the hardest times. While ELFs really miss having comebacks as a whole group, they know that it's enough just watching them succeed in solo projects and supporting the members who are doing/about to finish their military service.<p/><b>BigBang:</b> we truly do get treated like VIPs when it comes to these 5 weirdos who changed the kpop game ever since debuting. There's not a single concert or special video where they don't show their appreciations for VIPs, whether new or old. We love them when they're doing solos, and we love them even more when they're together.<p/><b>SHINee:</b> Shawols treat shinee like kings, just as they should be treated. We practically worship the ground they walk on, and all of us are guilty of baby-ing the maknae, don't lie. They've been through some difficult times, but shawols are always there for shinee to lean on, and they're always thankful for all the support and it always shows when they're together.<p/><b>Infinite:</b> Inspirit and Infinite go hand in hand, always. Woohyun is always assuring inspirits that no one else could steal his heart, and no matter how cringy he is, it's true. They're always giving us new things to fangirl and roll our eyes about, whether they've had a comeback or not.<p/><b>EXO:</b> "Exo-L, we are one." I've never seen a group that spoils their fans more than they do, not to mention always exposing each mf comeback to us. We have a self-proclaimed dad in the fandom and everything, constantly showing his love to exo-l's. True fans have been with them and supporting them since whenever, and will stick by their side till whenever.<p/><b>BTOB:</b> Melodies will always be one of the sweetest fandoms, esp when having to put up with how underrated our boys are. Stanning the craziest and most extra group in kpop isn't easy, but melodies got that down, and it doesn't seem right if at least 2 members aren't screaming in every interview.<p/><b>VIXX:</b> they're always reminding Starlights that they'd be nowhere without them, and that we inspire them everyday as well. Seeing them acting charitable and friendly only rubs off on us, and it's safe to say that we're probably the chillest and most accepting fandom. Starlights act like VIXX's bodyguards bc we'd never make them uncomfortable, and they're always thankful for that.<p/><b>B.A.P:</b> Babyz have been with them through thick and thin, and it's so heartwarming seeing the support after the group has been through so much bs. They treat babyz with so much love and respect, esp when they have so many fans around the world. We're constantly spoiled with social media updates, and it's so nice seeing the six of them working together again.<p/><b>Topp Dogg:</b> if it were any other group, fans wouldn't keep streaming and supporting topp dogg as much as topp klass does. We struggle with these boys everyday bc of the lack of exposure and attention that they deserve to get, but they never fail to remind us of their love no matter what- bc they know they'll always have topp klass.<p/><b>Got7:</b> iGot7, or Ahgase's, are probably the funniest fandom to ever exist. It's like we're besties with Got7, and there's always someone roasting the other, whether it's us or them. We're blessed to have them be so active on social media, and we're their personal hype men. A lot of us don't support them blindly, though, and we're always the first to call them out on their mistakes.<p/><b>Monsta X:</b> kings of fan service, never ever disappointing Monbebes. They make us feel so special when it's like we're in a relationship with them, but they're aware of how cheesy they are when they flirt with monbebes. Might be the meme-iest group alive, but we're also the meme-iest fandom ever so win-win.<p/><b>iKon:</b> yet another kpop group that's terribly underrated, but iKonics make up for all of that with all the love they show to these kids. They're always out to expose each other and we love them for it. They outdo themselves after each comeback, and they care so much about pleasing iKonics.<p/><b>Day6:</b> only My Day can appreciate how special and unique these boys are, and we always remind them of it. We go crazy over all their teasers and trying to figure out how all their music videos are connected, and tbh they love watching us suffer. Each member is so relatable that we can't help but bias all of them, and they're highly aware of that fact.<p/></p>

“You’ve left me paralyzed.
And now I’m stuck,
You’ve got me stuck.
I never knew
Just what I wanted.
I still don’t know,
it’s all missing.
You’re picking up
On what I started.”

summary: you and shawn’s friends get mobbed when you go out for some food

“Hey, rockstar, you want anything from the shop down the block?” You asked, walking up to Shawn.

He looked up from where he was sitting on the dressing room floor, scribbling down some lyrics. The meet and greet was set to start in about an hour and half, but Shawn was struck with some good melodies and wanted them down before he forgot.

“Um, not particularly, but if you see something I like, you can get it. I’ll pay you back.”

“Don’t worry about it, babe.”

“Are you going alone?” Shawn asked, biting his lip. “There are a lot of fans outside, and I don’t want you to-”

Matt clapped Shawn on the shoulder, and smiled at him. “Don’t worry about it, bro. Brian, Ian, and I are going, too.”

“Alright.” Shawn nodded, and you bent over to kiss his forehead before the four of you headed out of the venue, making sure you all had the all-access passes to get back inside.

Laughing at Ian, you jumped when someone tapped on your arm. “You’re dating Shawn Mendes, right?” She asked, popping her gum.

“Um, yeah.” You nodded, cautious.

“You two are so cute together! Do you mind if we take a selfie?” She asked, smiling brightly.

“Oh, sure!” You nodded, smiling into the girl’s camera. You made eye contact with Brian, who was standing back far enough that his head was between your’s and the girl’s, causing you to let out a snort.

“Thank you!” The girl skipped off, and you rolled your eyes at the redheaded boy.

The four of you ordered your food, and Matt was paying for his, when you felt your phone go off. You looked down, a text from Shawn. Hey, some girl tweeted out where you and guys are, just be careful getting back. Love you.

“Hey, the fans know where we are, so like, maybe we should head back a different way?” You looked at the guys, who all exchanged looks.

“I mean, if we head back now, we shouldn’t get too many girls coming up to us, right?” Ian asked, pocketing his phone.

Boy was he wrong. Girls had already begun to crowd the sidewalks, not nearly as many as when Shawn would be out, too, but there were many more girls than you were used to. “Guys, c’mon, just let us though.” Matt said, leading the way to the venue.

You kept a solid stare on his back, not really talking to anyone.

“Come on! We just want a photo! Please! We drove four hours for this show!”

“Y/N! Y/N! Can you give this to Shawn!?”

Things were thrusted towards you, and hands gripped your arms. You felt like everything was getting closer and closer together, like the fans wanted to be as close to you as possible.

“Hey, guys, back up!” Ian gently tugged the girls away from you.

All three boys knew you didn’t really do too well in crowds like this, so they were trying to keep everything calm and get back to the venue.

“Stop being such a bitch and take photos with us!”

“Hey!” Brian yelled, not caring if he seemed rude. “Shut the fuck up. You’re already invading our personal space, don’t fucking demand things like that.”

You were thankful for him, but you just wanted to get inside.

Finally, you four made it inside, where Shawn was waiting just behind the doors. You nearly collapsed into him, since you were out of the public eye and able to breakdown. “Hey, hey, it’s ok. You’re ok, it’s fine, shh.” Shawn rubbed your back, sitting on the floor with you in his lap.

He nodded to his friends, letting them know he could take it from here, and gently rocked you. “It’s ok, it’s over.”

After a few minutes, your cries lessened to the occasional sniffle and whimper, and your breathing had more or lesser evened out. “I’m sorry,” You looked at his shirt, which was now spotted with mascara.

“You have nothing to apologize for, honey.” Shawn whispered, tucking some hair behind your ear.

“It’s just- they got so close. And they kept asking for photos. And touching me, trying to get closer.” You felt your heart speed up, and Shawn shushed you, pressing a kiss to your temple.

“I know, hun. But you’re ok, you’re safe now, I got you.” He stood up, and helped you up after. “C’mon, why don’t you go freshen up, hmm?”

You nodded, and walked into the bathroom, and Shawn walked into the dressing room. “What the fuck happened?”

None of the boys had touched their food; they were all sitting on the couch, just looking at the cherry-colored table. “Is she ok?”

“Yeah, she’s gonna be fine. What happened?” Shawn repeated, sitting on the arm of the black leather couch.

“Um,” Matt sat back, looking at his friend. “We met some fan inside the café, and I guess she tweeted out where she met us. Didn’t expect that many girls to show up.”

Shawn hummed, pursing his lips. “Fuckin’ disrespectful.” He mumbled, texting someone. “Um,” He looked up, furrowing his brows when he saw you walk in. “You feelin’ better?”

“Yeah.” You nodded, voice weak. “Thanks for like, protecting me.” You smiled at Shawn’s friends, who all shrugged like it was nothing.

“Gotta protect the girl who makes him happy.” Ian jabbed a thumb at Shawn, who chortled.

The five of you ended up just joking with each other for the rest of the hour, wanting to get your mind off of small mob that had surrounded you earlier.

a/n: i’m not happy w this, but i restarted it three times so


And although I’ll be out of sight dear, know I’ll be right here. Right here forever. And when you look to the night sky, don’t think of goodbye, think how I’m right here forever, and ever, and ever.

50k+ Completed Chaptered Masterlist

permanent ink - Katsuki Yuuri had two soulmate marks.The first was the words Stammi Vicino scripted right over his heart in bold, beautiful letters. The second was a pair of wings curled against his shoulder blades and down his back in arching, florid strokes.The former belonged to five-time gold-winning World Champion, Viktor Nikiforov. The latter belonged to his protégée, who was making his Senior debut the next year- Yuri Plisetsky, who tried to cut his soulmark off a year before meeting him.

Growing up, growing in -  After making his first friend at Barcelona, Yuri is left with more questions than answers. Is all of what he feels… normal amongst friends? Should he even hesitate that much at the very idea of having him at his home for his birthday?
All he knows is that he can’t wait for it to come, and find out what is all of this that Otabek Altin unleashes inside of him.

To Protect that Smile -  It’s been years since Victor Niforov turned his back from Yuuri and their adopted son, Yuri(o). Chaos ensues when Yurio won gold medal for Junior National Ice Skating Competition and Mari sent a profile for a scholarship/training abroad to Christophe Giacometti and his … co-coach.

Compromises - Their relationship was one of compromises, Yuuri thought, usually in Victor’s favour. Not that Yuuri minded - in all likelihood, he would probably set himself on fire if Victor complained about being cold. But there was one thing Yuuri point blank refused to compromise on; he would not step foot within a 100 metre radius of an ice rink.AU in which Yuuri quit skating as a teenager, Victor isn’t amazing at communication, and Yurio thinks they are both idiots.

Autumn in Detroit -  In a world where Viktor Nikiforov was forced to retire early due to a leg injury, he sought work instead as a police detective in Detroit. Now a young skater with a poster of him on his bedroom door has gone missing and Viktor knows beyond a doubt it’s the work of a man who’s been brutally murdering professional dancers for years. It’s impossible not to take this case personally. Viktor will find Yuuri Katsuki.

What Fades On The Ice - Yuuri Katsuki was a living legend in the skating world. A living legend that depended on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety tablets to survive.Viktor Nikiforov was a young ‘up-and-coming’ skater who was determined to convince his idol to coach him after an extremely bad result at his last competition.How will Yuuri survive the hurricane that is Viktor Nikiforov?Reverse AU where Yuuri is the skating legend and Viktor is a young skater trying to make it big.

Time Bomb Lover -  “I think I know someone who would be more than willing to help your family out, if you were willing to help them out in return. If you were interested that is.”

Precious Love - Basicaly Yuuri’s first job as kindergarten teacher who believe his english ability is his only good trait and Yurio as his problematic-anti-social-tsundere student who strangely attached to him.Add the boy’s famous-handsome-actor-father who is in desperate need of new caretaker.

Figure Skater Time - Assassination on Ice -  When Victor breaks Yuuri’s heart he couldn’t stand up. Broken and without an idea what to do he stumbles over his old equippment from his most interesting school year. His final year at Kunugigaoka junior high school in the assassination classroom with the worlds best teacher and strongest target. In his dream he meets his teacher Korosensei one last time and he gives him the courage to rise once again. Determined to show the world what he is made of he sets out to nurture his blood-lust once more and sharpen his blade. With a little help from his classmates he decides to show the world what he learned in the assassination classroom and how he is ready to graduate from his heartbreak.

Yuuri!!! on Floor -  The gymnastics edition, in which Viktor is still a skater because he’s too pretty on ice and I couldn’t take it away from him. A story about how sometimes love comes slow and soft, and how hearts get bigger when they break.

A lack of Invitations -  Viktor is ex-Russian mob knife for hire, with a terrifying reputation. Yuuri is a Japanese mob boss. They encounter each other at a party and for some reason, Yuuri is intrigued enough to hire Viktor on.

From Almaty, With Love - It’s quiet here. Even if the car alarm on the neighbor’s goddamn BMW has been going off for the past twenty minutes. Quiet, even though the alarm’s got the neighbor’s dog howling like crazy, and the neighbor works second shift and isn’t there to comfort the dumb dog.It’s quiet…They haven’t spoken to each other since that morning, when Yuri went off to go see his tutor, and Otabek went off to do whatever the hell it was he did in the mornings before he hit the rink.“You’re used to the noise?”“Yeah, but…I think I like the quiet too.”

Dance of the Red Death - Viktor Nikiforov loved too much. What begins as a cough morphs into something that takes the shape of an unseen monster hiding in his very blood. With the Russian government scrambling to sweep under the rug the worst of a crisis that’s been thirty-five years in the making and a society that sees his disease as a death sentence, Viktor is left with figuring out his own way to survive.

Hasta que los días nos unan otra vez - Yuri es un joven amante del patinaje que vive en San Petersburgo con su abuelo. Su vida es normal, hasta que se cruza con aquel extraño de rasgos extranjeros en la pista y desde esa misma noche no puede dejar de soñar con él, literalmente.Pero en sus sueños él ya no es Yuri Plisetsky, sino Yuuri Katsuki, un joven soldado japonés durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y el extraño tampoco es el mismo sino Viktor Nikiforov, un voluntario ruso en los campamentos de refugiados.Yuri sabe que todo es solo un simple sueño, pero ¿Por qué su corazón duele cada vez que sueña con aquellos dos desconocidos, y se siente tan ligado a su historia?

The Longest Off-Season -  It’s after the Grand Prix Final, and now that Yuri and Victor have made their choices and established exactly what they are, Victor asks Yuri to move in with him in Russia.
Everything is going so well; it’s pure domestic bliss, that is until something happens which turns their world - and Yuri’s skating career - upside down.

Melodies Unheard, but Felt All the Same - Yuuri wanted to make history as the first deaf man to win the Grand Prix Final. Of course he’s a little skeptical of Victor Nikiforov’s presence, especially considering the reactions from others who have learned about his lack of hearing.But Victor proves to be different, and Yuuri appreciates that. Now all that’s left is to tell the figure skating world about it.

lie to make me like you -  It’s become a game, of sorts, to anyone privy to the fact that the pattern exists in the first place: ask Victor out at the beginning of the month, date for however many days, and wait for the end to come and for Victor to say, always: I couldn’t fall in love with you. Let’s break up.
Or, Victor is a retired actor looking for love, and Yuuri happens to be the (un)fortunate soul to unwittingly ask him out at the beginning of the month. Except relationships don’t come with a script, and it’s much harder understanding love than roles.

like your french girls -  in which Victor is an artist, Yuuri is his figure skating muse, and Yuri is so done hearing about their stupid love story through Instagram

all the world’s a stage - Everyone has a guilty pleasure.For Yuuri, it just happens to be romance movies starring famous heartthrob Victor Nikiforov.

Between us - Love hurts. Love heals. Sometimes it’s really easy to love. Sometimes it feels like hell. You can forget to love yourself because you are too busy with loving someone else. Sometimes you give everything for the one you love and don’t expect to get anything back. You can love with all your soul and heart. Your heart can heal, your soul can belong to someone else. Love will make you cry and laugh, love will make you hate and forgive.
It’s life. It’s pain. Feels.Don’t give up.In the end, love always wins.

Still Got Time

Still Got Time was released on March 24, 2017. 

Zayn is the featured artist. Additional artist is PartyNextDoor. 

The song is the lead single from Zayn’s second album, yet to be released. It was produced by Frank Dukes (who recently produced Lorde’s Green Light, and has worked with Rihanna and Drake) and Murda Beatz (who produced No Frauds for Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne). 

In this post, I will be referring to times from this video:

I admit I’m not used to writing about dance or R&B music, and if I make any glaring mistakes, please message me!

This song is part of the slew of Caribbean-inspired tropical house or Jamaican dancehall music that have drifted in and out of pop charts recently, often collaborations between artists and producers, whose engineering of bass lines and percussion is a significant portion of the songwriting. 

These songs might sound tropical, and fresh, and sunny, but their pedigree is firmly rooted in Motown R&B. And the looming figure in contemporary R&B and dance whose influence and sound are inescapable is Michael Jackson

Soft snores emitted from (Y/N)’s plump lips, her hair covering part of her face and her pillow covered in drool. She seemed restful and the faint smile on her face showed she was having nice dreams that she’d surely forget in the morning.

Her peaceful slumber was disturbed when a sound came from her window, quiet and almost inaudible until it echoed throughout the room again, over and over until the girl sat up quickly in a defensive stance. Her eyes were wide but still showed how tired she was, her hair was sticking up in several directions and a side of her face was moist with drool which she quickly wiped away with the sleeve of the sweater she was wearing—or more precisely, her boyfriend, Justin’s sweater.

Run run little girl.
You haven’t got a place here.
You may look quite alright.
You may talk a sweet melody.
But darling you are no longer welcome.
Run run run, as fast as you can.
It’ll all come to an end.
It’ll all come crumbling down.
Save yourself my dear.
End your suffering.
