(none of that abusive or extremely ooc shit cause…no)
-He never wants the team to feel concerned for him cause they’re in the middle of fighting a war. He doesn’t need to distract them with his problems. So, he talks to anyone he can that’s not on the team.
-Like he did with the yupper, if he makes an alien friend and they’re alone, he’ll try to vent for awhile. He starts to flirt with some aliens and go off with them, so the team thinks everything is good and normal. But when they’re alone and if the chance comes up, he’ll talk about how he feels.
-Everytime, the alien tells him to tell the team, but he just c a n t.
-Lance knows everyone has different connections but he can’t help but notice how Shiro rarely speaks to him and Hunk outside of battle and training.
-Lance won’t show whether he cares or not if someone insults him (unless it’s to keep up his and Keith’s rivalry) but if someone insults his friend(s) he will go ballistic
-Lance and Coran often talk about how they miss their home planets and try to bring each other up by telling stories from Earth and Altea.
-One day Lance decides to experiment with his team (since he’s quite good at reading and testing people) by not speaking unless he was spoken too. He noticed how little people besides Hunk actually talked to him casually.
-“hey Lance are you okay?”
“Yeah I’m fine.”
Narrator voice: “But he was not fine.”
-Coran suggests doing the mind melding exercise again and it’s kind of concerning how much Lance does n o t want to do it
-Lance’s mom gave him his jacket which is why he wears it so much. It’s like a piece of her.
-Lance has a knack for finding abandoned rooms in the castle like spacious storage areas or balconies. He likes to sit there when his insecurities get the best of him.
-Keith found him in one of those spaces once. They didn’t say a word, just sat in each other’s prescense. Lance only spoke when Keith got up to leave. He said, “Stay.”
-Lance wishes he could start over with Allura and just be nice so she wouldn’t roll her eyes and scoff when he tried to have fun with her (Allura doesn’t realize how the flirting just…stopped).
-The paladins visit a planet with rain and Lance has to try and keep himself from crying when he feels the water-like substance against his skin. (He does but plays it off like it’s the rain hitting his face)
-Lance knows his team isn’t obligated to praise his every action and validate him as much as he thinks he needs, but that doesn’t stop the voice in his head from convincing him that he’s just a seventh wheel after all.
-Once Shiro realizes how the unintential bias was affecting Hunk and Lance, he throughly apologizes and makes an effort to include them more.
-The team will never forget the day they all walked in on him sobbing and their perceptions of him were changed forever.
-From that moment on, they made an effort to include Lance in everything they could. An effort to compliment him when he did something great.
-Lance was extremely grateful. His insecurities were surely a battle with himself more than anything, but the team’s support meant the world to him.
Note:This isn’t giving them a pat on the back, but basically just acknowledging the good things some idols have said/done. Because, in kpop there are a lot of problematic idols and their apologist that come along with them. Things often get swept under the rug and downgraded. There’s just so much negativity in these fandoms, so here’s some positive!)
Said this a couple of years ago on his twitter when he was still active.
Doyoung, Mark, Taeyong, and Yuta talking about their youngest member:
Look how happy he is! Also, the fact that they acknowledged his darker skin tone in a positive light is just amazing.
Mingyu is considered to be the “darkest” member in Seventeen and sometimes he gets self-conscious about it because, pale skin is “ideal” in S.Korea. Honestly god bless The8 for this, he’s such a good friend.
This isn’t the first/only time they’ve complimented his skin tone
And this, it’s so kind:
Some “fans” were calling Seungkwan “fat” during this time. Luckily, his members have his back.
Teaching their youngest (Dino) not to feed into stereotypes.
AND I DON’T WANNA HEAR NOBODY SAY “oh, he probably doesn’t know what it means” BECAUSE THEY HAVE TWO FLUENT ENGLISH SPEAKING MEMBERS AND VERNON’S MOM SUPPORTS BLM SO SHUSH
In their comeback mv for, “As If It’s Your Last” (Released in June, which is Pride Month). Fans noticed this:
Okay so as we all know by now Zhang Yixing is not a part of EXO’s 4th full album The War.
Whether it was a conflict of schedules or mismanagement, the sad reality is that an EXO member is fully excluded from the comeback. Moreover, the fans weren’t given a proper explanation about the status of the situation and were mostly kept in the dark about the extent of his participation without any clear statement from SM entertainment about whether or not he will be a part of the album.
EXO is a group of 9 members and the fans are here for the 9 members. If members are excluded from full comebacks like this, it isn’t a situation fair to anyone - neither the members nor the fans. Hence, we cannot allow this treatment of the current situation to be digested like this. Many fans are discontent and disappointed, and we need to express it openly even as we await the upcoming comeback.
In short, Yixing is an EXO member. He should be in an EXO album. He, or any other member, cannot be excluded from any future comebacks like this - with vague statements as an excuse. EXO is 9 members, and having a Full only 8 member album should not erase the group’s identity as 9.
Therefore, in order to show our support for OT9 and appreciation for EXO LAY and not forget his complete absence from the comeback, we are announcing a Twitter project.
On 17th July 11-12 AM KST, the night before the release of the official MV, we will trend the hashtags:
"#이씽도사랑해" (We love Yixing too)
Please take part in the project by tweeting the above hashtags and tagging the official @weareoneEXO account with it.
EDIT : Some of the people are misunderstanding the primary purpose of this project. (probably because of the strong wording of my original post).
Its a small meaningful project of support and nothing else.
1. Yixing is an EXO member that we still support and remember though he is not a part of this comeback.
2. We missed him in this comeback and felt his absence.
3. EXO is 9 members and we support all nine.
4. To cheer up and make yixing stans feel more included in the comeback.
5. This project is not = #noot9nocomeback or to cause fanwars.
This is not a petition, its just a twitter project to give an hour to Lay and the people who miss him..before exo comes out with a new album and enters a new era.
Small projects like these wont affect the comeback. Small projects like these don’t affect album sales, youtube views, album reviews, voting results, music show trophies, lay’s activities in china, THAAD, member’s popularities or daesangs. Small projects like these are to make people feel better. The hashtags are all about positivity and hence i request everyone to keep it positive and in control.
Also, I apologize for the unnecessary confusion the timing on the poster are causing to everyone. It is a one hour project- 17th July 11 pm kst to 18th July 12 am kst. Please be respectful and keep the hashtags positive and stick to the start and stop timing.
We chose this time since a lot of ppl will already be up at that time to possibly catch the full MV Teaser on July 18th 12 am Kst.We kept it short since by continuing it once the teaser drops we dont want to show disrespect towards the comeback (and it will be drowned in the hype anyways)
The official MV is on 6pm kst 18 July. So the twitter trends for the comeback will not be affected.
Jimin said that he never felt the need to stand out but wanted to show a better him. and through serendipity, he was able to
Thanks to BTS and ARMY supporting him, whenever he’s filming or recording a song by himself he’s able to enjoy it
He is happy because he was able to see his face everywhere (meaning many people celebrated his birthday) and mentioned that his parents in Busan did too (He is talking about the ads and events made for him by the fans). So he thanked everyone because this birthday was so joyful to him
He mentioned that the flowers given to him on his birthday were from his father and he thanked his dad.
He showed a photo of the dome they will be performing at in Japan (It has been a dream of theirs to be there) and he said that “this is Taehyung and jin hyung but you can’t see them because of how big the dome is. It’s unbelievable”. He also added, “I’m so happy we get to perform at the dome tomorrow I will let you guys know how I feel tomorrow”.
Chimchim, of course, will not go on Vlive without exposing BTS he said: “whenever we see us in the monitor coming up onto the stage during or concerts we look really ugly but we pretend to look cool”
While thanking the fans “thanks to you guys we are able to perform at a dome” He read a fan saying “jimin’s gonna cry again” and replied “who is that?! I’m gonna say your name out loud”
Jimin kept thanking repeatedly during the Vlive: “today is a day full of touching events. thank you for wishing me happy birthday, letting us perform at a dome and giving us triple crown”
Jimin was barefaced so he told us “am I too barefaced right now? get used to it you guys have seen it a lot”
Fans kept asking him to stay healthy and eat well to which he replied “I say this many times but I eat a lot better than you think. so you don’t need to worry so much. I’m taking care of my health” (He also ate some chocolates)
When a fan stated that Jin picked his birthday cake. he was surprised as he didn’t know (he didn’t see the tweet).
Mochi is so pleased with Serendipity. Jimin said: “which song do you guys like the best? I cold heartedly will admit that I like serendipity the best”. he also added that he wants Suga to record serendipity and how he will change it.
He tried many filters (bunny, cherry flowers …). He also turned the image by mistake (clumsy Jimin ofc)
He went there adding more lies saying that he can’t wink and that he just end up blinking with both eyes
He ended the Vlive by saying that he will go wash up and that the fans to need to brush their teeth and go to bed.
<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>
I don’t think ppl realise how lucky exo is to have someone like xiumin…. like that boy can do ANYTHING he can sing rap dance act be a leader. I bet he’s hiding more stuff under his sleeve. He is the most effective person to have in a group. Say for example, Chen was ill and needed someone to cover his high notes. Xiumin. Or one of the dance line was out. Xiumin. Rap line. Xiumin. Someone for the other boys to look up to including our leader too!! Xiumin.
Can you see where I’m coming from????
Appreciate and stan him you uglies smh y'all fake as hell
The best glowup pictures are always of trans folks. I see photos of sad kid after sad kid contrasted with happy (openly trans) adults who were allowed to transition. The contrast should make a statement to parents, family, and community members: supporting trans people is always the right thing to do. Listen to your child, your friend, or your neighbor and respect their identity. Had I been allowed to transition when I wanted to, I would have had a much safer childhood without the violence I experienced due to my identity. In the small town I grew up in, I would still have no choice but to be openly trans. However, I would have been better able to defend myself, knowing at least some people were there to support me. By denying my identity, my rural community told me I had no one. Now that I’m always around other trans people, I know this experience of isolation isn’t uncommon and we will always be stronger when we are supported by others.
Meet Park Jimin. born on October 13, 1995, in Busan. He is the main vocalist and dancer of BTS.
Before becoming this celestial creature who inspires youth to pursue their dreams, he was a child with none but a will to become either a chef or a police officer.
His dream will come to shape when he sees a south Korean artist named Rain. At the time he would laugh if he heard that years later he will have to dance to one of his songs in front of the world.
He falls in love at 8th grade with dancing. A love he will keep dear … a love that will change his path forever.
He will work hard for his dream and get into Busan High School of Arts as the top student in modern dance, but will later transfer to Korea Arts High School where he will meet one of the 6 guys that will share his destiny: Kim Taehyung (V).
None of them knew at the time how valuable one will become to the other, that they will share smiles and pains and call each other soulmates.
Seasons pass and Jimin will audition to BigHit, Sweaty palms and shaky voice, this shy guy will sing … was someone that scared and timid made for the stage? People who didn’t know of his duality will mock even the idea of it. After a poor start caused by stress, fear will fade when it’s time to dance along with the judges' hesitation: he was a raw diamond.
Jimin will get accepted into this small company, full of trainees with more experience and chances to debut than him. He said only later “as a trainee, I really didn’t know if I’d ever get to debut”. He used to be perceived as talented and showered with compliments by both his professors and parents in his hometown, arriving at Seoul. Negative thoughts will start to build up: “Why is everyone better than me? Do I have no talent? … Am I no good? Should I give up? Is this worth it”. Being a guy who hates losing he will ignore the hardship and just work harder.
And indeed, hard work paid off. Jimin with only one year of training will join Big Hit’s first group: Bangtan Seonyondan. During BTS first year, he will have the chance to write a letter and read it to ARMYs. His face will carry his signature smile at first but word after word, memories of that harsh year will start to hit him … and tears will fall. He will say that he thought of giving up endless times and that he is thankful he did not.
During BTS first years, they were hated and belittled by many. Jimin who though debuting was the hardest thing will come to laugh at his naive past self. He will recall what made him come through that harsh year: “hard work”. Even if he is known to be the boy who helps and supports every member, he is the kind who tries to solve his own problems … He blames no one but himself.
He didn’t know at the time that he was feeding a complex he kept from the past that will lead to a dangerous situation: He will start viewing himself as “fat” and be more self-conscious about his appearance than ever. And so … *sigh* …
he will start starving himself in a middle of a busy schedule where even sleep is a luxury, to shortly after fall into a big depression. Smiling during the day to cameras and …
wiping sweat and tears training with all his might for hours.
Jimin called having abs a “homework”. ARMYs loved his abs … but no one knew the price the poor boy paid for the screams of the crowd.
Receiving hate from others is hard, yet imagine hating your own self? we can hide from people yet we can’t run away from our thoughts.
Jimin is also the kind to help everyone but solves his own problems. A workaholic who hates losing and get veeery stubborn. The members even said, he is the scariest when he gets angry.
But Jin couldn’t stand seeing Jimin in constant pain so he got him out of it. It took Seokjin time and effort but it was worth it as his junior started to eat regularly and accept that he too can have flaws.
All of this situation made Jimin grow not only as an artist but also as a person, to become idolized by many. People tend to think Jimin was naturally good at all he does. Jungkook’s words when he described JM will quickly tell you otherwise “He tries the hardest! He watches music videos all day long … When I watch him, he looks cool”
He is the protégé of both BTS, the managers and the whole fandom so no one can refuse him a favor.
Have you ever thought why did Jimin not release any cover song alone? Most people learn from their mistakes but there are some that prefer to not allow any. As Jimin stated in both Bon Voyage S2 and BTS Wings concept book, he is still not pleased by his singing.
People mostly say “I like Jimin’s voice” when he worked so hard he wants to hear “Jimin sang well” because a good voice is something you are born with, singing well is something you learn and work hard to achieve.
There is no way we can change Jimin’s way of thinking, but maybe we can choose better words and simply stand by him the way Jin and the members did in the past.
Jimin is like a moon reflecting all the light he gathers on us with a smile. Yet where we stand no matter what, we will never see his dark side. Neitherless, we still know it’s there.
You may probably already adore Jimin the singer, dancer, and performer but please don’t forget the one who needs more love: Jimin the human.
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations, I am happy destiny led him our way so we can open even better paths for not only Jimin but all BTS. If you enjoyed this post you may also like Jhope’s story HERE By @mimibtsghost
May I ask a question that doesn't include this one?? What do you think of the whole deal with Felix and some of his friends standing up for him, stating that he's not antisemitic and he was just joking and all of that??
i have zero sympathy for pewdiepie, or anyone who chose to defend him. even if he’s not personally antisemitic (which is.. debatable), he’s still
contributing to a worrying trend of antisemitism not being taken seriously, and normalizing hateful speech towards jewish people to a fanbase of millions of young, impressionable people
