So… Star gave Tom one of Marco’s spare hoodies.

That is… a complicated gesture, one that only becomes more complicated as you step back and look at not only the context of the episode, but the even larger context of Season Three thus far.

A lot of this season has been about letting go and moving on. This theme was touched on when Star eulogized Glossaryck and literally said the words, “I let you go,” and again when she washed Marco’s hoodie and sent it back to him. It was touched on during Silver Bell Ball, when Tom made a conscious effort to respect Star’s space and her choices. In all of these cases, letting go is exactly what allowed their loved ones to return to them.

Compare this to Marco clinging to his relationship with Jackie, and Tad clinging to his relationship with Kelly; in these scenarios, they all end up miserable. Jackie outright tells Marco that if he stays with her, they’ll “both end up miserable,” and even though Tad hopes that he and Kelly will get back together, his refusal to move on is making them both unhappy. The message of this season is clear: As much as it hurts to let go, living for the future is better than clinging to the past.

But where does the hoodie fit into all of this?

In Scent of a Hoodie, the red hoodie symbolized Star’s attachment to Marco. She was so afraid of losing her connection to him that she wouldn’t even allow the hoodie to be washed–but by the end, she realizes that even though her time with Marco may be over, she’s always have her memories of him (”You’re experiencing the memory of a scent!”) and that revelation allows her to let go. She returns Marco’s hoodie to him, and moves on with her life.

So by the time we get to Lava Lake Beach, the hoodie itself is no longer sacred to Star; she allows Tom to wear it, and she even allows Tom to rip off the sleeves, something she never would have done in Scent of a Hoodie. To me, this suggests that the hoodie is no longer a symbol of Star’s attachment to Marco, but rather, a symbol of OPENING YOURSELF TO LOVE AFTER HEARTBREAK.

Consider that no just one hoodie was shared in this episode, but two. After some intense and much-needed emotional honesty, Marco shared his hoodie with Kelly, who in turn shared it with Marco. First Marco draped it over Kelly’s shoulders, then she wrapped it around the both of them, sharing the comfort and warmth.

Star has opened herself to the possibility of a new relationship with Tom, just as Marco and Kelly have opened themselves up to new relationships. All four of them are letting go of the past and moving forward–and, more importantly, they’re not closing themselves off to love. Their hearts are open–their hearts are a red hoodie, shared on a cold night.

The inspirational themes and lessons in the otome Mystic Messenger

Cheritz did an amazing job in the scenario and the themes, it’s game full of lessons ! It’s not an empty game, like you finish and you move on already, it gives you the chance to think and rethink about it!

I will talk about what themes there are in each route and what positive effects it can bring into our lives ;)


  • Jaehee : the theme of the dream, the goal of your life, what is the most precious, finding the real happiness, having the guts to say stop at a boring and average life and raise up, raise up to reach your own happiness ! Jaehee is always overbooked, working day to night, and even night to day, she earns a hell lot of money yes since Jumin pays her very well, but she knows that deep in her heart, working like a company slave is not what she wanted. She took a big risk to quit and following… actually creating her own path. If you feel suddenly lost, if you think about your life and you feel you’re not happy with what you are doing, it’s NOT TO LATE ! Go and do what you like ! Be who you want to be ! Because no one will do that in your place ! Be happy ! Carpe diem guys !
  • Zen : the courage to not give up after several hardship and failures, the courage to go through all the difficult things in life and to stay who you are, it might be the continuation of Jaehee’s theme about pursuing your own happiness, without caring of the judgement of the others ! Yes, Zen is living in a very small place, not even enough for two persons, he’s not rich but he is happy, he embodies who he is really, he is not depressed, he loves his life and he’s proud ! The fact that he never gave up will make him a big celebrity too ! Do not give up, life can be hard, life can be tough, Zen started by playing guitar in the streets ! But see who he became ! Perserverance is the key in every way, life is too short to give up ! ;)

 

  • Yoosung : of course it’s the theme of the pain and the loss, the mourning, but it’s also the theme of trying to find a new happiness, trying to move on, the theme of growing up, of moving forward, of actually realizing that we have one life and we should take advantage of it (example : in the deep story, Yoosung finally calls her mother, a thing he didn’t do for a very long time because he was busy to play LOLOL). Yoosung, by learning from all his hard times, his mourning, he grew up ! Because he opened himself to the others about his pains, he found the power to forgive V (the theme of forgiveness!), he found the courage to move on, working hard at school and becoming a great vet ! Yes, it’s painful, some events are so painful you just want to die, you want to stop all this pain, but you can in a better way: open yourself to the others, find the power to forgive, and become pro-active of your life ! Life isn’t just about pain and loss, it’s about building yourself, loving, and becoming a great person ! Hang it there !
  • Jumin : Jumin, a successful businessman, a CEO-in-line, rich as hell, smart as hell, he has everything…and yet, he can’t be happy. Jumin who thought he could be happy by having only Elizabeth 3rd by his side realized that it was actually not enough. Something was missing in his life, something was missing in his heart. Behind that cold mask of him, that cold voice, that cold stare and cold clothes, his heart was yearning for something bigger, his heart was yearning for love. A love he refused to himself because of the women he met in his life. It’s a theme about the real happiness, the love, about the question of  “can I make it in this world on my own”? But it’s also the theme of communication with our partner, and how much we can do for our partner without hurting them. It’s about opening our heart to the others, to the feelings, to feel, to receive and give love in order to feel complete ! You’re a human being, human beings need to live in a society with the others, otherwise, they feel lonely and they will become crazy. Even if you think you don’t need the others… the others will always need you, and soon, you will be in need of the others ! Let your feelings go, express yourself ! Let yourself be loved even if you are scared…<3 !

 

  • 707 : there are a lot of themes here that I’m sure I will forget some when I’m going to write ! His route is so complex but I will mainly focus on the theme of the identity crisis, who he really is, his origins, the theme of the sacrifice and loss, how much he sacrificed to help his brother? Everything, who he is, he hid the answers deep in him to move on and it’s actually make sense when we know he is an agent : an agent can’t be a person, an agent is invisible, an agent can’t have relationship and personal connections, an agent have to forget everything and be ready to be terminated at any mistake and dangerous mission. Saeyoung created a mask, the mask of Luciel, the mask of 707, the one who only makes joke and laugh all the time, but it’s not him. And he can’t embrace who he is because if he does that, he will remember of Saeran and his sad childhood. But that is the problem. To live and be happy, you have to embrace who you are, your past, your present, the bad moments, the good moments, you have to create yourself, to be a person, you have to build yourself but you also have to remember about your past. Seven’s route is a trip about rediscovering himself and finding himself, it’s about fixing the wrong choices and creating a new path, it’s about forgetting the predestination and create yourself your future. You can do it !
  • V : it’s mainly about the theme of the art, about the soul, and of course the definition of love ! All along his route, it’s a question of what is the art, the perspective, and in parallel, it’s connected to love. The art is the treasure, the richness of the soul, the art is a full creating of your soul, your feelings, the art is a parallel of your soul : because you create, you play something or you write/draw something, you use your imagination and the imagination is connected to who you are. If you block your creation, your imagination, you stop growing up, you are stuck, this time, your soul is yearning. The art is also only about yourself, not the others. The favorite subject of V was the sun, but he thought that the sun was Rika, he took him time to realize that the sun was him, the sun is above all but it’s in ourselves. Also, I was talking about the theme of love, in V’s route, it’s also about the different kind of love, the love we think it’s the true love and we become blind of our partner, the love who is actually an obsession, the love that we think we give but we actually give something else to our partner (and it creates misunderstanding), the love we think we deserve. The insane love. For V, the love was just love, there weren’t distinctions, and because of this he suffered (and Rika too). But what make us understand the different is the experience and the retrospection, we have to realize what is the love we want and what is the love we want to give and for this, we have to know ourselves, who we really are and we have to embody it, (at the end, V is not V anymore, he is Jihyun), the conclusion is, before giving happiness to the others, before loving the others, give yourself the happiness (for V, it’s painting, creating, answering to the call of his soul) and love yourself first ! And do not give up on love !

 

  • Rika/Ray/Saeran : these themes are darks, but depending the ending (in 707 or V routes), there are hopes for them. Anyways, of course, it’s the theme of mental illness. Well, there are a lot of metaphors with the darkness and the light, the devil inside, but to simplify, it’s a poetic way to say our conscience and bad conscience, or for them, it’s a way to say their others personalities. For Rika, it’s schizophrenia (I think?), and MPD (multiple personality disorder), and for Ray it’s MPD and BPD (borderline personality disorder). Rika has a kind side but becomes a whole new person when she is upset, and Saeran is split between Ray (the kind boy who has BPD) and Unknown (the cruel sadist who want to hurt and destroy everyone). Saeran/Ray is also afraid of abandonment, of being alone and he will do frantic efforts to avoid being left by someone, he will do everything, he will even let himself used and manipulated (by Rika) if he knows he won’t be alone – that is the BPD. But for those who have these mental disorders, there are hopes ! Rika is saved  by getting help (well she was so convinced that she was okay that Jumin forced her but at the end she was saved), and Saeran was saved too in the secret ending ! There are always hope, we live in a world where having help is possible, getting help, or just being receptive to our friend’s attention is a good beginning to the happiness ! You think you are alone with your mental illness, with the pain in your mind, but YOU ARE NOT ! You are NEVER alone ! Don’t forget that !

Sekai no Yakusoku - Howl’s Moving Castle Ending Theme
I have always loved this song, please read the translated lyrics as they are as beautiful as the music and melody, I defy you not to get a little emotional reading them :P

pervy-pansexual  asked:

Do you have any NurseyDex headcannons?

THIS HAS BEEN SITTING IN MY ASK BOX FOR WEEKS BECAUSE I HAD SO MANY HEADCANONS I HAD TO NARROW THEM DOWN LMAO. seriously I have so many but here are a few of my favorites!

· Honestly like… they’re both romantic af. I always see so much “oh Nursey is the romantic and Dex couldn’t care less,” but….

· Dex is the textbook definition of the acts of service love language. He’s also super perceptive, if he’s quiet he’s probably making the active decision to LISTEN to whoever is talking and not just hear what they’re saying. The man would build his partner a front porch as soon as he had the time, energy, and funds because a few months ago they mentioned how nice it would be to sit on the front porch with him with a glass of lemonade on a late spring day (and he does do this for Nursey eventually and also probably builds a reading/writing nook for him when they own a house).

· Nursey has a decent hodgepodge of several love languages, mainly words of affirmation/quality time/occasionally gifts. He’s the type to write down quotes that made him think of his partner and post them around the house, and if he sees something in a store that makes him think of his partner/sees something he knows his partner wants/would like he’ll get it for them. He’s also a big listener, and he likes spending time with the people he loves even if they’re not really doing anything? Just hanging out and doing their own thing in the same room is enough for him a lot of the time

· Both are perceptive and this means that both of them notice typing patterns and how they correlate to the other’s mood. Nursey says “chill!!!!” – a good day. “yo chill” – average day. “Chill.” – pissed the fuck off, maybe crying he’s so angry? Days like this, Dex will go out of his way to Annie’s and get Nursey’s feel-good drink (chai rose latte with soy milk because regular milk makes it too sweet). If Dex ever actually sends ellipses in a message, that means he’s bottling up so much he’ll explode later if he doesn’t convey what he’s feeling properly so Nursey will throw a soft blanket in the dryer so that he’ll have something warm to cuddle into when he gets home, and Dex will lean against Nursey with the blanket on his shoulders until he’s ready to talk.

· They’ll also do that sickeningly sweet thing where in the dead of winter when the other is in the shower they’ll put a towel in the dryer so that it’s warm when they get out.

· CUDDLY DEX!

· The man is a fucking koala.

· Seriously, if he’s sleeping alone he’s got his entire body wrapped around a pillow, even if it’s not person sized. Arms and legs wrapped completely around like it’s a tree trunk. He’s spring loaded and tense even when sleeping so he’s just, wrapped around this pillow like he’ll fall 30 feet if he lets go and the habit continues when he starts sharing a bed with Nursey.

· The first time they shared a bed Nursey woke up with both arms and both legs asleep and completely numb from how tight Dex was holding him and he just didn’t want to wake him up because even though his body is tense his face looks so peaceful? Also like, he can’t feel his limbs so, it’s a bit hard to move.

· It was like ten minutes before he even tried to move, and then he’s still in physical pain because like…. Sleeping limbs, y’all, if you don’t move them for long enough it’s like “I need to go to the ER levels of pain.” You thought Nursey was clumsy? Imagine the man when he cannot physically feel his legs. This was a learning experience for both of them.

· They spend the next few nights figuring out good sleeping positions that don’t cut off air or blood flow.

· The winners: Dex as little spoon, wrapped around a pillow the same way he would be if he was alone but with Nursey in a similar position holding Dex; Nursey flat on his back, Dex on his stomach slightly to the side with one leg thrown over Nursey and his arms kind of circling his head like a halo, head buried into the crook of Nursey’s neck.

· They both have a love of crime shows, especially Law and Order, and ESPECIALLY Special Victims Unit.

· They can only watch it when they’re both in average everyday moods though, because if they’re in super good moods it will bring them down and with bad moods… SVU is not the best Law and Order series for bad mood days (the author speaks from experience). They learn to spot each other’s mannerisms and know when it is Not an SVU Day.

· They can never watch just one episode, it’s a problem. Like one’ll sit down and be like “Hey you wanna watch just like, one episode to wind down?” and the other will agree and then one episode turns into MINIMUM four and they’re both ready to die for Olivia Benson.

· This happens EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. And they NEVER learn.

· They’re also the people that quote along with the opening monologue word for word and will do stupid ass dance moves to the theme song. The first time Dex danced to it, Nursey laughed so hard beer came out of his nose.

I love these dorks.

Elmer McCurdy was an American outlaw who died following a police shoot-out in 1911. His bloodied body wasn’t claimed by any relatives so it was embalmed and put on display at the local funeral home, where the unethical staff charged people to view it. His corpse would then be lent out to travelling side-shows where they would use it as a prop in morbid albeit entertaining performances.

Sometime in the mid-60s, the corpse of McCurdy was forgotten about. It stayed at a carnival in Long Beach but the previous owners failed to mention it to the new ones. In 1976, a TV crew filming “The Six Million Dollar Man” at the theme park moved McCurdy’s body thinking it was just a prop, but were horrified when one of the arms fell off revealing the skeleton underneath.The body was buried under concrete and McCurdy’s working days as a tourist attraction were finally over.

If the love confession, proposal, obvious strong bond, nakedness, masayoshi canon-ly not attracted to women, goto’s dead girlfriend and masayoshi’s similarities, the theme of moving on, and the entire point of the series for masayoshi to understand love and finding out that he’s in love with goto (and getting jealous for still texting his “girlfriend” every once in a while), that they are living together, and the fucking wedding picture STILL isn’t good enough lets go back to step one to see if the ship is canon:

CHARACTERS ARE ATTRACTED TO EACHOTHER

pansexual--bookworm  asked:

I'm reading a new book and can't find any good music to listen to while reading. Do you have any suggestions or any recommended artists?

Okay! I am so excited about answering this! I, too, am always on the hunt for the perfect reading music! I’m not sure what genres you like/if you want music with lyrics or not so I’m going to throw a ton of stuff out there - I hope there’s something that strikes your fancy, and if you have a more specific request that I don’t cover, then feel free to ask! I personally listen to a lot of rock/punk music while I read, so if that’s interesting to you I can add some of that music, but I’ll stick with mostly ambient/peaceful/not distracting stuff.

Reading Music Masterlist

Music without lyrics

If you have a spotify account, then there’s a Spotify-created playlist called “Deep Focus” and this is my absolute go-to for academic reading or when I’m trying to do personal reading in a noisy location. It’s calm and peaceful and I basically lose all sensation and forget where I am beyond the story I’m reading.

Another Spotify playlist I really liked is called “Studying with Classical Music” created by user classifyapp1. It’s updated weekly though, so sometimes I’m in love with it and can’t get enough, and sometimes I don’t like anything on it. It’s still worth checking out if you can if you like classical music whilst reading.

If you don’t use spotify/want more specific recs, here are a few (still without lyrics):

  • Anything by Clocks & Clouds - perfect for action/intense reads because I always feel like I’m walking away from a fight scene with a building exploding behind me when I listen to them
  • Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92: Allegretto by Beethoven conducted by Leonard Bernstein - This piece is super cool because scientists have discovered that the chord sequences are perfect for releasing happy and stress-relieving chemicals in your body. Like the chords literally resonate with your body, or something like that (I switched from Bio Engineering to English for a reason). Also a great piece for getting work done on a tight deadline with a lot of stress
  • Pavane composed by Faure - peaceful with an enchanted forest feel
  • Anything composed by Philip Glass - my personal favorite is Akhenaten: Prelude
  • Gone in Bloom and Bough by Caspian - very ambient, and out-of-body
  • anything by Kyle Landry, but I particularly like the Howl’s Moving Castle Theme
  • Gaspard de la nuit: Ondine composed by Ravel (I like Martha Argerich’s recording quite a bit)
  • You Are a Memory by Message to Bears (ambient)
  • Come Away With Me by Tracey Chattaway (ambient)
  • Dancing on the Light by Richard Dillon (ambient)
  • Quiet by This Will Destroy You (ambient)
  • Rheaide does a cover of the Beauty and the Beast - Prologue music without any narration, just music, and I listen to this constantly while reading but just living my daily life. It makes me feel like a girl with her nose stuck in a book :)
  • ANYTHING by Joe Hisaishi - “Hisaishi Meets Miyazaki Films” is one of the best things to have happened to this planet
  • Vitamin String Quartet

Beyond this, other instrumental things that are great for reading are movie/video game soundtracks because they’re story-oriented which means they can set the mood really well for whatever you’re reading if you get the right thing. Some of the classic movie score composers that I would recommend are Dario Marinelli, Alexandre Dumas (his Harry Potter soundtracks give me life and I most certainly listened to them when reading the series), Hans Zimmerman, and John Williams.

One of my favorite video game soundtrack composers is Jeremy Soule who does Guild Wars and the Elder Scrolls (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s music is f a n t a s t i c for reading). Final Fantasy music is also good for mood-setting. My absolute go-to’s when reading though are the Music from Braid soundtrack by Sieber, Kammen, Fulton and Schatz and Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts (the Dearly Beloved cover by Vitamin String Quartet for reads that are wholesome and romantic or even empowering coming-of-age type stories).

Lastly, the Avatar the Last Airbender soundtrack the Voltron soundtrack for the remake of the TV show are EPIC esp if you’re reading action/space operas.

Music with lyrics

What I do a lot of the time when I want music with lyrics to get me in the right mood for the book I’m reading, is I’ll do specific playlist searches on Google. For example, I’m reading A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab rn and love Lila’s character, so I just searched “Delilah Bard character playlist” and got great results. 8tracks.com users are also stars are creating fantastic character/book-specific playlists and they’re free!! Which is the best part!!

Here’s some music I gravitate towards when I’m reading but don’t have the energy to get all artsy with mood playlists:

  • Bloodstream by Stateless
  • Halsey’s first album
  • Marina and the Diamonds - Numb and Robot are two of my faves
  • Bloodsport by Raleigh Ritchie - If you like Rainbow Rowell, she added this to Baz’s character playlist from Carry On and it is PERFECT so I listened to it on repeat while reading. Also fun because Raleigh Ritchie aka Jacob Anderson was Grey Worm in the GoT TV show if that’s up your alley
  • Peppermint by Lovers
  • Anything by Tess Parks
  • Cigarettes after Sex - Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby is quite peaceful and reassuring for trying to get into a safe space mindset for reading
  • Once again if you have Spotify, Afternoon Acoustics playlist is perfect for curling up in a window or garden on a sunny day with a light read
  • We Are Broken by Paramore - fits apocalyptic reads quite well I think
  • A Sunday Smile originally by Beirut covered by Kishi Bashi
  • Forest Fire by Brighton

My last suggestion: if none of this music strikes your fancy, then you could try www.ambient-mixer.com!! There’s a ton of background noise tracks and they’re so fun and perfect for geeks, with tracks like “Gryffindor Common Room,” “D/D fantasy inn/tavern,” “Belle’s Library,” and less specific ones like “Summer Forest” and “On a Ship at Sea.” Perfect for immersing yourself into whatever story you’re reading!


Sorry this is so long, as I tried to be fairly comprehensive. Once again, feel free to ask me for more specific recs if this wasn’t helpful. And anyone else is welcome to add to this if they have suggestions! I hope you enjoy your reading :)

anonymous asked:

Millie please make one of those amazing posts of yours for Howon too. I love it when non-Howon biased people praise him. Also he deserves all the love but there is still prejudice towards him (thankfully it's less now compared to few years back) So let's spread Holove 💜 - infnthoya

Of course I am more than happy to make a post about our wonderful HoyaYahoHoya! Especially for you @infnthoya !

You can see the previous posts (Sunggyu/Woohyun/Sungyeol) here!

1. DANCE GOD HOYA

Okay but before I say anything else, this performance he did on Hit The Stage with the amazing (queen) Choi Hyojin still reduces me to tears because it is PERFECTION and it really showcases the fact that Hoya can dance in a different style to his usual go-to hip hop moves!

The theme for that episode was This Love and although everyone’s performances were great, Hoya and Hyojin absolutely deserved their win because this was ART and totally projected all this raw emotion and I will never get over it. 

Hoya is INFINITE’s main dancer and it’s not hard to see why. Over the years it’s been amazing to see him improve and build on his skills and talents. He actually dropped out of high school to pursue dance, even though his family were against this decision. He did eventually get his high school diploma, but it took a while for his relationship with his family (and his father in particular) to be mended again. 

It’s great to see that nowadays, Hoya’s name is often mentioned when people talk about the greatest dancers in k-pop. He is more than deserving of it.

2. THAT VOICE THOOOOOOUGH!

Although Hoya started out as one of INFINITE’s rapper line, he’s had vocal lines in songs for a looooong long time. However, not everyone noticed how much his voice had actually improved until INFINITE’s more recent albums. In 2015 Hoya opened up his own YouTube channel and surprised everyone by posting his first cover - Zion T’s Kiss Me. He followed this up weeks later with an English cover song, an acoustic arrangement of Ariana Grande’s Problem. Although he hasn’t been as active as we might like on the channel, it’s a goldmine that shows of how wonderfully soothing and great his voice is. My personal favourite so far is his cover of 이게아닌데 (This Ain’t It) by Taeyang. But for some nice visuals, check out my second fave (and another English cover), John Legend’s All Of Me. 

Then of course, there’s the fact that he got into the composing game just like fellow member Woohyun. The song One Day on INFINITE’s 2016 album INFINITE Only was co-written by Hoya and was performed on music shows during promotions for 태풍 (The Eye). He also wrote and composed his own track 아무렇지 않은 척 (Pretending It’s Okay), which he performed on 4Things Show. This song seriously gets stuck in my head all the time and I really wish he’d upload a full version on his channel or that it might feature on an INFINITE/INFINITE H album in the future. On top of all of this, Hoya has always been involved in writing his own raps ~~

3. HO-ACTOR

One of the first things I watched that had an INFINITE member in it was Reply 1997. And in that (incredible) drama, Hoya played Kang Joonhee. And that character was an ANGEL. He played the role so well, so convincingly. I really connected with his character and Hoya was praised a lot for his role. This is my absolute favourite scene of all time. Excuse me while I go cry. 

Hoya has also starred in: Reply 1994 (cameo as Joonhee), My Lovely Girl (alongside member Myungsoo), Mask and as a lead role in the movie Hiya. Currently he is in both Strong Family and Radiant Office. Despite the fact that Lee Howon is an awkward baby, his acting skills are A+++++ so pleeeeeease check out everything he has starred in so far. 

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE!

I feel like I got way too emo in this post, but genuinely I love Lee Howon so much and wish he was my best friend tbh. Here are some more things I think everyone needs to know about him: 

  • His sexy, R-rated solo stages. Okay so… these speak for themselves
  • His weird jokes that only he finds funny. Honestly, prime DadJoke material. 
  • Hoya’s passionate hard work. Not only does he dance and dance and dance some more, even to the point of injury (that happened because he danced too hard on an existing weak ankle to ‘impress everyone in the audience’) and well into the night, he also worked hard to speak in Seoul dialect so he could be easily understood by fans. 
  • Overwhelming love and affection for his fans. Everyone always says Woohyun is the fan service king in INFINITE and while that may be true, Hoya is definitely fierce competition. Just look at how many V Live broadcasts the boy has done, his Instagram stories and frequent updates, and the song he covered as a dedication to Inspirit. 
  • His relationships with the other INFINITE members, whether it’s the gag-duo of Sunggyu + Hoya (HOBAK GOGYUMA), the affectionate Dongwoo + Hoya couple (INFINITE H), awkward bros Woohyun + Hoya, brother-like love Sungjong + Hoya…. he matches so well with every member in different ways. 
  • Those eyebrows, that jawline…. His visuals are no joke

And here concludes me pouring all my repressed Hoya feels into one long ass post. I really hope you all enjoy it and please love Lee Howon just a little bit more than you did before

  • Vivec: Former shitposter extraordinaire who used to bait people for funsies and who deletes their blog and remakes every few months.  Previously known for their lurid, neon layout, habit of reblogging bizarre hentai, and selfies, Vivec has decided that they are now beyond all that and have moved towards a minimalistic theme.  Now they mostly talk about books and philosophy and pretend they’re above everyone else.
  • Almalexia: Ayem has 10,000 followers and a redux theme edit in gentle, soothing colors.  Her icon is her face.  Although her blog may initially seem to be a great resource on parenting tips, political commentary, self-image, and life advice, you become more and more uncomfortable with the fact that blogs she disagrees with seem to just…deactivate.
  • Sotha Sil: A few years ago, Sil used to be so active that people joked about how he never went to sleep, but something happened between him and Almalexia and Vivec and now he never makes text posts anymore.  Once posting about tech news, disability, and transhumanism, he’s now an aesthetic blogger that only reblogs a lot of monochromatic pictures of machinery.  A few months back, he deleted every picture of himself he ever posted but recently, he posted a picture of his computer where you can kind of see his reflection.  He looks ill.  You are concerned but he turned off his ask box.
  • Nerevar: No one talks about him or even mentions his name anymore.  Almalexia deleted all her posts about him and Vivec’s gone through five blog changes since then, but you can find some posts about him if you dig through Sotha Sil’s archives.  He posted gym selfies, inspiring quotes, and about politics, though some his opinions were misinformed.  He hasn’t posted since 2012.  You’re worried something terrible has happened to him.  Recently, a new blog has been gaining in popularity and you can’t help but notice that they type in a very, very similar manner.
  • Dagoth Ur: You stumbled on this blog after reading through Nerevar’s archives and seeing all the asks and replies they once exchanged.  Voryn reblogs pictures of other people’s living rooms, body horror, and How to Basic videos.  You feel like these are somehow related.
  • Dumac: Another victim of 2012.  He posted about computers, politics, and the occasional shirtless pic where you can see that he was fucking ripped.  He and Nerevar had a falling out due to some anonymous hate, but some speculate in secret that the true identity of the asks was none other than Vivec.
  • Azura: Her main blog is devoted to pictures of roses, the sky, and her cats, but she runs a sideblog where she reblogs every single post that Vivec and Almalexia make and rips them apart.  Her morality is very black-and-white and it’s easy to get on her bad side, but many people feel like her hate towards them is deserved.  She hasn’t mentioned Sotha Sil in ages.  You’re not sure why.

Keep Looking Forward, Stop Looking Back

Among the themes prevalent throughout the manga, there’s one that’s caught my eye recently as the story progresses: letting go of the past and moving forward. 

The need to move forward is called for in different circumstances, primarily the death of loved ones and accepting past choices/not agonizing over what could have been. Fixating on the past has a negative connotation. 

This isn’t exclusive to individual characters either. At a larger scale, this theme is also relevant when there’s a refusal to progress as a society.

Spoilers if you aren’t caught up with the manga.
