Gotta say, this one felt like it took a million years and I’m still not happy with it. If you notice any mistakes please let me know, because there were a couple of places in this one where I was a bit iffy about how I translated them.
Synopsis: Jimin is finally returning home to Busan after a few years of college. His friend, Jungkook, tags along as well. Rather than being interested in the new sights, he finds his eyes following Jimin’s old friend- you.
Pairing: Jimin x Reader x Jungkook // childhood friend au & fwb au // love triangle ahoy
A/N: alskgdfkl sorry this took a while qq i hit the road block for this so i’m also sorry that it is quite short and probably isn’t what you guys are expecting ^^; there’s one last part to this btw, i promise it’ll explain everything that is unanswered from here
Jungkook’s words reverberate in your mind, astoundment striking you like lightning.
“You… what?” You ask for clarification, ebullience leaving your body as if it has never been present to begin with. All you are left with is plain shock, movements desultory as you take a few steps back.
Jimin’s eyes widen at Jungkook’s proposition of a panacea, for those words are the last he thought would ever leave Jungkook’s mouth. Jimin remains niche against the wall, rising tension hitting the room in untoward waftures. The younger boy sighs and scratches the back of his neck. “I said we need to cut off what we have—whatever it is.”
“W- why?” You say a bit too desperately, feeling yourself unravel at his sharp statement. “I thought you- we had… why?”
George Harrison - “That Which I Have Lost” - Somewhere in England
This is another track seven - seven having been George’s favorite number, and as such, as Dhani said, putting a song as track seven is the “highest honor.”
“That Which I Have Lost comes straight out of the Bhagavad Gita, which I was reading at the time and then I turned it into this little country and western tune.
The Gita is all about the struggle against the forces of darkness - limitation, falsehood and mortality. It sounds a bit like Star Wars, but life is a battlefield. People think life is all about having fun, and if the fun gets taken away we get upset. But life isn’t fun, it’s like being in prison - ‘I sentence you to life.’ You have to go and fight your battles with duality. And that’s what this song is about.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine - The Extended Edition
btw @bigbadbro is the bestest friend that anyone could ever ask for. he sent me a sealed box of the japanese version of yoshi’s story and then a copy of the us version because i lost mine. like i def felt as happy as a yosh when i recieved this… actually, WAY happier than a yoshi. <3
A good friend of mine lost her mother this weekend.
I have this group of friends I’ve had for 20+ years who live all over the world. We lose touch and come back together whenever one of us needs someone and today I spent the day in a group chat with them. These are women who know me, in some cases, better than I know myself and it is comforting to watch us all come together when it counts like no time has passed.
I told my friend that lost her mother that we were holding her up from every corner today.
I don’t know why I’m posting this other than to say it’s a nice reminder of my foundation. These are the people who got me through my mother’s death and now I get to repay the favor.
Women are amazing. I am blessed to have such a comforting home base in them. Find you some girlfriends just like these ladies and don’t let anything get in your way.
’What’s It Gonna Be?’ is based on my personal experience as a kid; thinking you’re in love but then realising that’s maybe just because you feel you should be (and ending up with someone totally unexpected).
Want to instill doubt in someone? “Change minor details in their surroundings.”
Yes, this post is about Sherlock. Specifically, about the reason for all of those pesky set design flaws that grew larger and larger as series 4 progressed.
For example, the skull picture we normally see…
…turns into this.
Or when Ella’s office looked like this…
…but turned into this.
There are hundreds of examples but how about simply one more.
John’s flat looked like this…
…but turned into this.
If you watch Many Happy Returns, which takes place before Series 3, you’ll see John’s front door doesn’t actually exist under the staircase – that was an unnecessary change in Series 4.
So what do all of these changes have to do with making an impression on the audience? Well. Everything.
When you want to get a group of people to doubt their own memory – or to plant new ones – you have to change things about what they already know, but don’t let on that you’ve changed anything.
And who does this for a living?
Derren Brown, the illusionist who had a cameo in The Empty Hearse. He’s also a very good friend of Mark Gatiss’. He has a fascinating video you can watch about this exact techniqueI’m explaining. By changing details visually, one can change how people doubt their own abilities to perceive reality, and also question their own memories.
Do you know all the outrageous things series 4 fed us?
– Mary is just an ordinary housewife with a good heart – John would never save Sherlock from a serial killer – John would beat Sherlock senseless – Sherlock simply needs love from family to complete him – John has a bunch of friends that love to look after his baby – John would blame Sherlock for any harm befalling Mary – John would easily forgive Mary for shooting his best friend in cold blood – Mary knows Sherlock and John better than anyone ever could
These things blatantly contradict everything we’ve ever known about these characters. Still don’t believe Mary is a manipulative psychopath? Go read the HLV script; it just made its rounds on the internet today.
You’ve been wondering why series 4 is so screwed up, narratively and visually? It has a purpose. It is to make the audience doubt – to make the audience doubt their own ability to comprehend reality.
