no matter what version

anonymous asked:

Is that anon serious?! Like, me, a cc believer, can go to darren and talk about all the pr bullshit because *my* version is the truth?! No matter if what I believe is the reality for Darren, going and talk to him about it is extremely rude! Like he sure can't say "yeah, M is a beard a I'm with chris" to a stranger! There are years and years of pr stunt because his private life *needs* to remain private and we actually care about him and we ARE NOT disrespectful!!

Considering she went so far to copy and paste and make such huge assumptions, I would assume so.

Nomie would be the reason why pr teams are paid so well even when they do something stupid.

I'm not disappointed that the album is RP and me being upset doesn't have anything to do with the boys & how hard they work but I was kind of shocked since I spent all of my money to buy this album($ extremely expensive in my country).I really would have appreciated it if bighit didn't have such an unfair marketing system that's built purely on the hype because now I legit have nothing left and as a consumer I deserved to be told certain things & just cuz I bought the album doesn't make it right

I understand how you feel, BigHit really should have clearly stated it was a repackage of WINGS rather than Supplementary Story. 

but first I think things need to be cleared up before we start accusing BigHit of things. if we take a step back, bangtan was a tiny group with a tiny fanbase with a rather tiny company with not much of a footprint in the industry. so the concepts were simpler, there were fewer albums, fewer mvs, fewer teasers, fewer trailers. as BigHit and Bangtan grew, so did their fanbase. but the fans expected a certain quality when it came to their favourite group and BigHit always delivers. 

but to be able to now have multiple M/Vs per album, long conceptual interlinking storylines, the sets and locations they have, the wardrobe, the camera/lighting/sound system, to get a better dance practice studio, to be able to provide bigger and better for the boys, and for the fans, and to be able to pay all the staff (producers, managers, stylists, etc etc etc) BigHit had to find a way to obviously make more money to continue providing fans with more elaborate works with every comeback. 

remember when they had to borrow a managers car in the  I Need U M/V because they didn’t have enough money to rent one to film with? and now, we see them having enough money to not only blow up a car! but hire 50 backup dancers! 

BigHit and BTS rely on sales of albums, fanmeets, fansigns, summer packages, seasons greetings, etc etc to be able to continue making more elaborate things for the fans. do you think they would have been able to have 7 different mini basically short film trailers to tease the new WINGS album a year ago? no, but they were able to now because of album sales.

the thing to remember is that BigHit & Bangtan are not asking you to buy every version of an album, it does not make you less of a fan if you buy only 1 or if you don’t buy a single one. but of course like anything there are those who will collect no matter what, no matter how many versions. I understand it sucks to have thought it was going to be a new album and having bought the previous versions for it to be only a repackage with a handful of new songs, but honestly this repackage doesn’t make it any less of an important album. epilogue was a repackage and in all honesty that repackage with those 3 new songs really helped bangtan further their success. this is a business so at the end of the day, yes they want the money and they will figure out ways of doing so, but also, you have to remember it is not done selfishly and for only gain for the company, but as a gain to put back into the boys, the boys success, and the fans invested interest of the group, as well as being able to find new fans by attracting them with their highly produced and detailed M/Vs

but I also kinda want to say that as much as BigHit should have labeled it a repackage, it was also very obvious that it was going to be a repackage because it was the continuation of WINGS. it was the ‘S’ we were missing, and I highly doubt they would have released a full new album for part of another album. there are many ways to look at it, but I think it’s important to understand why, as a company, BigHit is doing it this way

An early WIP for Departure zine~ (ofc CA outfits..i frickin love them)

I’ve progressed quite a bit but unfortunetly uni will keep making things hard for me again. 

Regardless i’ll do my best! I can’t wait to see this zine completed :D 

It’s for a good cause after all and i’m getting a copy of it no matter what!

Studio Pierrot’s huge mistake

Naruto Shippuden episode 495 was a really important day for all true TenTen fans (not counting those who only like their OOC versions of her), those who, no matter what they ship, respect her growth as a character and praise Kishimoto and the novelists for turning her into a strong independent kunoichi with 0 interest in romance we had in Boruto the movie and Konoha Shinden.

Konoha Hiden was the novel that explained TenTen’s deep character to those who didn’t pay attention through the manga or that had doubts about her motives behind certain decisions and life choices. It showed how girls in the Naruverse can choose a different path out of the usual one (becoming wives and mothers) because of their own will or preferences. TenTen was the example of a woman who didn’t need a man to feel complete.

Yet, Studio Pierrot spits this piece of crap on our faces:

And that’s it! No further explanation or character development. The whole thing just dies with TenTen making an “oh crap” funny face. Here you have yet another Naruto girl obsessed with marriage and love, daydreaming with hearts all around her until she suddenly realizes she has no boyfriend, so she can’t get married a live happily ever after.

Wait a second, I need to puke… I’m allergic to japanese single-woman shame.

For those who didn’t read the novels, maybe you didn’t notice but SP dared to change the context of TenTen’s lines from the novel. Here is the original script:

“Marriage, huh… well, it’s a nice thing”

[…] She lived her life without any thoughts for romance or feminity. Hearing about someone close to her getting married suddenly made one disturbing thought fly into TenTen’s mind and refuse to leave: Was it really okay for her to be like this? […] Was it really okay for a young woman to be like that?

From here, the question “Is it really okay for her/a woman to be like that?” is repeated numerous times, nearly once per paragraph. TenTen deals internally with the fact that she isn’t interested in men or love at all, in fact she has never being in her whole life because she finds weapons far more attractive and interesting. TenTen actually fears that she is not normal, that she should force herself to enjoy what others do.

Do you realize the struggle of a girl who just doesn’t feel she has to follow what society tells her it’s right for her gender to do? But no! Pierrot decides to add hearts, skips the whole inner dialogue sbout her doubts/way she feels, and just jumps to the recreation of imaginary people teasing her over giving a present everybody expects. And yeah, this last part was also in the novel, but that doesn’t excuse the lack of respect over TenTen as a complex character with an inner struggle concerning the way she sees life and even her sexuality.

I enjoyed most parts of the episode, of course. As a Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden fan I was happy to see how Pierrot fused both Lee’s and TenTen’s chapters to praise their good old anime spin-off and Kenji Taira; but I missed the dramatic parts of Konoha Hiden, being this the one I wanted to see animated the most.

This wakes an uneasy feeling in me. With the Boruto anime series airing in April… did Studio Pierrot re-wrote this part of the novel on purposse to turn TenTen into Mei 2.0 for the sake of comedy? It’s not the first time Pierrot changes a character’s personality in fillers, including the whole romance issue. I’m really scared.

About that post where Stiles is leaning up against the lockers, you mentioned in the tags that he looks like an 80's movie. It reminds me of the breakfast club where everyone is running up and down the corridor while the chick, the basket case, - I've forgotten her name sorry! - just stands there and watches. And then I thought about how she and the jock hooked up and then thought of jock!derek and basket case!stiles and it made me incredibly happy.

Referring to this: x

*screams* (genuinely)

Nonnie, you have no idea the height of my obsession with brat pack movies. The concept of jock!Derek and basket case!Stiles makes me very happy. I really like Molly Ringwald and Judd Nelson’s story in the film but I kind of always preferred Ally Sheedy and Emilio Estevez’s - I have a huge obsession with jock/loner story-lines and Ally Sheedy’s character is by far my favourite in The Breakfast Club. And you are right, Stiles really does look like her in that moment:

They both have that slightly judgy look about them. (I love it. I am weak. Take me now.)

I also think a Breakfast Club AU with Stiles as Allison would work - specifically on an angst level with the Sheriff as Allison’s main character arc (in terms of what each of them are battling with emotionally) is that she is ignored at home and subsequently shuts herself off from her peers. Imagine the Sheriff who, after Claudia’s death, found it very hard to look at Stiles because he looked so much like her and as the years went by he found it easier to shut him out. Imagine rebel!Stiles who does anything and everything to get his dad’s attention: smoking, drinking, skipping school, sleeping around. He wants everyone to think he’s weird, a special kind of bad news, but can’t quite pull off the bad boy act because in reality he’s a giant nerd and while he is very popular with the guys at Jungle, his heart is never quite in it. Mostly, he’s just fascinated with foreskin. (The fact he’s once or twice let himself wonder in the heat of the moment if Derek Hale has foreskin is none of anyone’s concern.)

On the other hand, you have Derek in the role of Andrew whose main arc is about the guilt he feels over bullying a guy in his year because he wanted to make his dad proud and show him he isn’t weak. Personally, no matter what universe, I could never see any version of Derek humiliating someone to the level Andrew does (the whole point of Derek’s arc is that he chooses to be kind when dealt shitty hands, even if that kindness is sometimes ill thought out). However, I could see Derek snapping under the pressure he faces at home and beating up someone like Jackson for bullying Erica and going too far. Maybe it’s a werewolf AU where Derek is finding it hard to deal with the pressures of becoming the next Alpha after Laura dying (shit, oh god no, I’m hurting myself big time with this one). Maybe you have Derek who is trying to be the perfect everything: top of his class, captain of the basketball team and straight, straight, straight (dates all the girls in his year) because he’s desperate to prove to his parents that he can be everything they had hoped Laura would be. Secretly though, while Derek likes working for his grades and enjoys basketball, dating is hell for him. Objectively, he likes the idea of sex and kissing but he’s never been in a relationship with anyone that that has been remotely appealing with. All he actually wants is to open his own bookshop one day, and perhaps talk to that strange boy he sometimes sees cutting class with books on the male circumcision and satanic rituals.

Now, I know make over scenes are overrated and overdone but I am a sucker for them and all I want to see is that moment where Lydia (because of course Lydia is prom queen) takes Stiles to the bathroom and gels over his hair and gets him to take off some of his layers - “three plaid shirts, Stiles? Really?” I want that moment where Derek - already completely smitten with Stiles’ unique style of fucked up-ness (because c’mon, you know Derek probably already had a crush on Stiles before detention) - can’t breathe the moment Stiles steps out of that bathroom and he can see his face. And Derek will do the whole awkward woah thing Emilio Estevez does and Stiles will get all defensive and snarky about it, all the while being unable to stop from smiling like an idiot when Derek can’t stop staring.

Anyway, long story short, nonnie - YES. Yes, I love this idea. I want this idea. I need this idea. I have read two Breakfast Club AUs for the Sterek fandom but I must have more. It’s important. So very important. For health reasons.

excuse me...

i have these moments where i just hear something by taylor or read about something she’s done and there’s a part of me that wants to be calm and relaxed but this other part of me always wins and i end up an ugly crying mess because of her and that’s where i am right now. i have no idea why ive been feeling the way i have lately but the second i heard that old Untouchable performance all of the tears and all of the feelings just like……..,.,,,,,,,,,… made me crumble???? i still spend some days wondering how someone as sweet and generous and hard working as taylor ends up getting her name dragged through the mud when literally all she wants to do is make people happy as much as she can whether it’s with her music or just her presence. i dont understand. im so lost like can someone draw a map for me because we’ve all practically watched her grow up and be so many different versions of herself. from the awkward dork to the strongest she can be in the spotlight and then there’s the sweet little fairy and you just know that no matter what version of her she’s being, she’s trying to be human and she is. it’s so hard to remember this with celebrities because we put them in these glass cases never to be touched but left to fade from the camera flashes like these priceless masterpieces. but there’s a reason it seems so easy to imagine yourself stopping at starbucks for coffee after a day of shopping or drinking wine on a roof and spilling secrets like…..she’s so real. she is actually like,,,,,,not just a concept, you know? i wish there were more people like her and i wish there were more of her in me. it used to be this thing of like wishing i was in her position (because c’mon like who doesnt want to be talented, rich, and beautiful) but now i find myself wanting to make other people’s days a little better somehow, everyday. it’s that chain reaction situation that makes her such a great person because the more good you put into the world, the better it gets and it’s such a terrible place so the smallest things make it just a little easier to live in and i dont know. she’s such a bright light. i find myself listening to her more and thinking of her when she’s not around and it’s not a painful ‘i miss you’ anymore it’s more like a safety blanket, remembering days when i began to pay attention to her and nights when my mom wouldnt know what to do when i cried about just one line in her songs. i sound so pathetic right now but i really love taylor swift and honestly days like today where i feel like im on an island and no one can hear or see me, somehow she makes me feel like it’s more of a vacation from the outside world than isolation. idk but like……taylor swift was a very good idea.

Martin has come out with a video saying that MCC will be restoring to what it once was, and I am so happy for it. He himself has said that he is no longer apart of Ghost, so now all of the rumours can be put to rest. 

I am happy Martin has addressed this topic that has become such a huge issue amongst us all. I am happy for him and all that he is involved with and is planning to do for his future. I will always support him, no matter what. 

As for MCC, an official version of Sway has finally been released, as well as proper lyrics being added to the video! Sway is my most favorite MCC song, and it’s so great to hear this version as it was intended to be heard.

This is the Russian version of the traditional ABC song that we’ve all learned in school at one point. The Russian might come across as being a bit less catchy, but it does the job and that’s what really matters anyway.  Alternate version.
