I have a secret: I don't ship Sonic with anyone... I honestly think he can be too immature for a relationship at times and needs to grow up more? idk I just feel he's still a kid and doesn't want/need to be tied down is all. That's my headcanon :>

And that’s a perfectly valuable headcanon, doesn’t need to be a secret (:
Just because I ship sonamy, it doesn’t mean I’m not open to others’ opinions! In fact I partially agree with you on the “not wanting to be tied down” part.

I’m just a dreamy fangirl, that’s all ^^

Some things are really hard to watch.

“[…] part of me missed touching her. I just missed touching her when I was kind and loving towards her. Like I wanted her to stop crying, and to calm her like she did in the true love scene” - The Stable Boy Audio Commentary

Drarry on their first date
  • Harry: So, um... Malfoy. Did you know that people have been playing Quidditch since the eleventh century?
  • Draco: Yes? Who doesn't know that? Why?
  • Harry: Oh. Well, it's just something I read in "Quidditch through the ages"...
  • Draco: *smirking* Why Potter, if I didn't know any better, I'd think you're trying to impress me.
  • Harry: *blushing* Well err... I...
  • Draco: I'm flattered.
  • Harry: You are?
  • Draco: Of course! You learned how to read. For me!
Ode to the Girls

Ode to the girls with moles on their arms,

Ode to the girls covered in scars.

Ode to the girls who have lazy eyes,

Ode to the girls that get red when they cry.

Ode to the girls who’s voices are deep,

Ode to the girls who snore when they sleep.

Ode to the girls that can’t find their words,

Ode to the girls who are never heard.

Ode to the girls who’s voices are loud,

Ode to the girls who make too much sound.

Ode to the girls who just can’t fit in,

Ode to the girls who aren’t exactly thin.

Ode to those who aren’t beautiful by default,

Ode to them when society says all is their fault.

You’re all beautiful, each and every one,

Ode to the girls who radiate the sun.

Dear Incoming Newbies w/no Japanese Skills...

You are just as welcome as the people who spent years studying the language. You are just as apt to make this a good experience as someone who got to study abroad in university. You were hired onto the JET program for a reason, which is just as valid as someone who feels they’re going to adjust more easily because of their skillsets in the language.

Will things be tougher in some cases? Yes. Very much so.

Will things be more beautiful in some cases?  Yes. Very much so.

Will you have a harder time adjusting? Maybe, maybe not.

Will your experience be any less than someone who studies 10 hours a week to improve their language skills? It depends on you not comparing yourself to that person, or any other person for that matter.

To the newbies who DO have Japanese skills… I know it can be tough. You see someone struggling through and think, “If you just~” or “when I had to do this~” or “why don’t you~”

Stop. I know that you worked hard. Languages take dedication, and I know you got to where you are with a motivation that I admire and that I and many others do not have! But still… you gotta stop, y’all.

You don’t know what mitigating factors there were in this person’s life. You don’t know what they’re trying to do now. You don’t know anything except your own motivations and skillsets. Focusing on those is good! Comparing yourself to someone without them is not.

Just… wanted to make sure you guys come here and know what’s what. Every single year, I see a lot of people posting about “learn the language before you come” and “how frustrating that you can’t do this simple thing” and “why even come to Japan if you don’t wanna speak Japanese”….

That’s just shitty vibes, friends. And to be honest, this post should just be titled “comparisons are the devil” and just have a large bold NO SHITTY VIBES beneath it. Maybe I’ll do that next year. But for now, just have this as a reminder that you’re all coming out to a new country to experience it as you are going to, and trying to manage other peoples’ enjoyment/motivations while doing so just ain’t sustainable.

Am I the only one here that thinks SM has a hand in leaking NCT’s teasers early? I mean they do this kind of stuff all the time for EXO’s comeback so I wouldn’t be surprised. One thing SM is good at is hiding stuff they don’t want people to see so the fact it’s been easy for people to get these spoilers is suspicious. This a hype strategy and to be quite honest it’s a compliment towards NCT since SM doesn’t always do this for every comeback and/or group.

Once I had a secret love
That lived within the heart of me
All too soon my secret love
Became impatient to be free

So I told a friendly star
The way that dreamers often do
Just how wonderful you are
And why I’m so in love with you

Now I shout it from the highest hills
Even told the golden daffodils
At last my heart’s an open door
And my secret love’s no secret anymore

[Instrumental Interlude]

Now I shout it from the highest hills
Even told the golden daffodils
At last my heart’s an open door
And my secret love’s no secret anymore

Secret Love, from Calamity Jane, 1953

ETA: Holy Nonnatuns. Now I’m picturing them signing that as they danced around the sitting room.
