not a fan of his recent stuff but this song still gets me

Hit Korean boy band BTS is ready to take over Anaheim

Rap Monster, one of the seven guys in the South Korean boy band BTS, says it was only at the end of 2016 that he and the others realized how huge their band had become around the world.

“Somebody in the company sent me a message: ‘You got No. 26 on Billboard OMG congratulations,’” says Mr. Monster, the 22-year-old rapper born Kim Nam-joon, by phone from Chicago where BTS was set to play on Thursday before hitting Honda Center for a pair of sold-out shows on Saturday and Sunday.

“At first I thought, 'Ha ha, your humor isn’t really very good,’” says Rap Monster, the leader of the group and its primary songwriter. “We didn’t believe it.”

But as more messages started to ping onto their phones he says the BTS boys realized it was no joke: Their sophomore album, “Wings,” entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 26 after its October release, making it the highest chart position for any K-pop act – not to mention one that sings primarily in Korean – and offering a bit of foreshadowing for Billboard naming the record the best K-pop album of the year.

Since then things have only gotten sunnier for Rap Monster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. In February, “Wings” was re-released in a new edition as “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and the combined editions have since sold nearly 1.5 million copies worldwide. Music videos for “Spring Day” and “Not Today” were released a week apart last month as well and exploded on YouTube where they’ve currently racked up 59.2 million and 60.1 million views respectively.

“When we heard that and really got that, I was saying, 'OK, this is going to be a whole other world,’” Rap Monster says of the significance of the Billboard chart success and all that followed. “And I feel like we should do something more, and dream something more.”

This past week they’ve taken a step toward something more, playing their first headlining and sold-out arena dates in the United States, after previously having mostly played on multi-artist billings at KCON conventions held here.

“So many people just to see BTS was really an honor,” Rap Monster says of the opening pair of shows at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. “It feels dreamy these days.”

Not, mind you, that it’s been anything like an overnight success or an easy road for him and the other BTS members.

He grew up a top student in his school who loved American rappers such as Eminem and Nas, performing even as he attended high school and eventually catching the attention of BTS future manager Bang Si-hyuk at BigHit Entertainment in South Korea. And though he says he gave up on music when he was 16, lacking confidence in where he was headed, he says Bang encouraged him to stay strong, believe in himself, and sign on as the first to join BTS, even though at the time he wasn’t sure who or what it would end up incorporating.

“I was not aware of the other members,” Rap Monster says. “But I like the company and I respect them. And he promised to me, 'I will make you do your music and get big someday, so please believe me.’

"So I believed him.”

The other six members soon were selected, each of them bringing different talents on the mic or on stage. Songs were developed by Rap Monster and the other members, with a team of producers working to craft the best music from the raw material, the melodies and beats, that they created.

“Our chemistry is different from other groups,” Rap Monster says. “Everyone has their own points and characteristics. If I’m a bad dancer, a good dancer teaches me. If I’m a good songwriter, I help the others with a good melody.”

We ask the obvious question: Are you a bad dancer?

He laughs and answers: “Yes, I’m a bad dancer.”

Their music is different from a lot of K-pop acts that have made ripples on the American airwaves. They’re not popular because of the novelty aspect of their songs – think “Gangnam Style” by Psy from a few years back. And they’re not quite as bubblegum as a group such as Girls Generation or as eclectic as the synthpop of f(x), the first Korean band to play the South By Southwest festival.

Instead, BTS often aims for that sweet spot where R&B and rap get together, the kind of stuff Justin Bieber might be doing if he sang in Korean and there were six Bieber variations with fashionable hair and eclectic yet unified fashion choices.

“BTS music sounds like it’s from America,” Rap Monster says. “We decide to always watch the trends and watch what’s going on over the world. America’s the No. 1 market in the world so that’s why people in America prefer us.”

As for communicating through the language divide, Rap Monster says that’s partly handled by the group’s wildly enthusiastic social media following: “Fans translate our lyrics and interviews,” he says of a following that has landed them at the top of Billboard’s Social 50 list for a total of 17 weeks since “Wings” dropped in October. “They’re able to say, 'OK, BTS is talking about us and our lives.’”

And it’s partly addressed through lyrical subjects that express the common hopes and dreams and fears and worries of any teenager or young adult in any country.

“Our lyrics are mostly Korean but we always talk about the young people’s lives and their minds,” Rap Monster says. “There’s something similar between every young person in the world, in America or in Korea. We share something together even if we use different languages or live so far.”

American fans are also the savviest music lovers in the world, Rap Monster says, which made heading out on this brief headlining tour a little bit intimidating at first.

“We actually were scared of performing in America as a solo act,” he says. “Their playlists are the best in the world. I was really nervous for them.

"But after we were on stage our fear disappeared. They’re like everybody, they’re like friends. Singing along all of the lyrics even through the raps. They know how to play, the rhythms and the dances.”

An aside here to share our favorite piece of Rap Monster trivia. You might be wondering whether he spoke through a translator. He did not. His excellent English skills were polished in the classroom but also at home through what he refers to as “a Korean mothers syndrome.”

“'Friends’ was really famous for the mothers in Korea for English education,” Rap Monster says of the hit American sitcom from the '90s. “It was kind of like a syndrome. Korean mothers make their kids watch 'Friends’ even when they were eating food or playing.

"I think it really helped. It has like 10 seasons, I think, and I watched it like more than five times through the 10 seasons. They use the gestures and expressions, like, Americans use, right? I think that naturally teaches me how to speak or how to make a gesture when you try to express some emotions.

"Thank you, 'Friends,’” he says, laughing. “God bless 'Friends’!”

Rap Monster recently collaborated with the American rapper Wale on the song “Change,” which like some of BTS’ other songs – and unlike most K-pop – touches on politics and societal issues. He says he’d loved Wale’s music for a few years when the opportunity to do the song came along last year “like a miracle, like a dream come true.

"The song has already come out and we shot a music video together, but still sometimes I lie in my bed and think, 'Did I really do something with him?’” Rap Monster says.

He knows that boy groups from Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync to the Jonas Brothers and One Direction tend to have a finite lifespan before members get restless to move on solo projects, acting gigs and other opportunities. But he thinks the variety of interests and musical genres that individual BTS members have can be handled on the side or even within the group, and BTS itself can carry on.

So while Rap Monster says he’d love to collaborate with Drake or Miguel one day, Suga feels the same way about Kanye West and Flume. Jungkook seems more inclined toward pop R&B – his dream musical partners would include Bieber or Charlie Puth. V is a little bit old school, having mentioned Norah Jones and the Fugees as on his wish list. Rap Monster ticks off the rest of the band: Jimin digs Chris Brown, J-Hope is into the similarly initialed J. Cole, and Jin is a fan of old-school showman Bruno Mars.

“I always tell them that every time we have hits under the name of BTS we shine the best when we are a team,” Rap Monster says. “I know all the seven members, they love music, and I know their No. 1 wish is for us to perform and make music and sing and dance.

"Maybe someday someone will want to be on a television show or be an actor,” he says. “I just hope they know all of the popularity and fame and money is from the name of our team. That’s not one person, everybody contributes to the team.

"Nobody knows the future. I just hope it can last as long as possible.”

On Camera

Or that one time Lance decided to live-stream when he really should’ve been resting. The (established) klance YouTuber AU that no one asked for, but you’re all getting. Domestic klance sharing an apartment is my jam, and throwing a little angst in there is a bonus.

I’m actually really happy with this, and if people like it I might do an actual long AU thing with this setting, so feedback is appreciated! For now though, just a one-shot. This is also proof that the best writing for me happens at 3 AM… oops. I hope you enjoy!!

Psst @taylor-tut this is that thing I not-so-discreetly mentioned in my tags, have a wonderful day.


Lance McClain was a rulebreaker in every way, except for one thing. He believed it was always necessary to have a routine, and never stray from it. If asked, he’d inform you that a steady routine was the foundation for a steady life.

Showering every morning, brushing his teeth every night, thinking of a cheesy one-liner for Keith each day without fail, the list went on. Little things.

One of his many routines was to live-stream, always on Sundays. Because who did anything besides sit at home, definitely not with a hangover, on Sunday?

New videos went up on Wednesdays, but the carefully edited ones on YouTube and his live-streams were very different. Many fans even preferred seeing him live, mainly because he couldn’t stop himself from making bad jokes, and was usually too lazy to straighten his bedhead.

And they would always ask him to go bother Keith in the next room, which Lance more often than not was obliged to do.

So when he woke up late one Sunday with a killer headache and a stuffy nose, Lance wasn’t about to let it get in the way of his routine.

He discovered a note from Keith on the kitchen table that said he’d be out running errands, and Lance lamented that he hadn’t been awake to tell Keith to get soup. After shooting him a quick text, the only response Lance got was “You don’t even like soup.”

Lance chuckled softly, which quickly led to a series of wet coughs. Clearing his throat, he began to set up his camera, wrapped himself up in blankets, and started the stream.

“Hey guys,” he said with a small wave, and winced at how raspy his voice sounded. He sniffled, and edged the off-screen box of tissues closer to him.

The chat was quickly flooded with “HELLO”’s and “LANCE!”’s. By now, all the fans knew when he went live. Lance was, however, surprised to see several inquiries about his health.

There were quite a few “Are you okay”’s, and even some “You seem sick”’s, with one of Lance’s personal favorites being “You look like shit.”

He read off the last comment with a short laugh. “Thanks, KeiththeKutie05.” Then, as an afterthought, he added, “Nice name.”

After a short pause of him continuing to scan the chat, he spoke again. “I’m fine though, just got a cold or something. Nothing could stop me from live-streaming!”

As the viewers seemed satisfied with this response, Lance wasn’t surprised to see the usual repetition of “Where’s Keith?” in the chat. He sighed.

“Mullet Boy is running errands,” Lance told them, rolling his eyes for effect. “Probably going out to buy a new pair of fingerless gloves.”

Keith and Lance had been sharing an apartment for some time now, and the Internet was very invested in their relationship, or so it seemed. Keith was annoyed by the whole thing at first, but Lance found it entertaining that his fans seemed to like Keith better than him. Lance could, admittedly, relate.

Eventually, the accidental publicity that came with dating a YouTuber inspired Lance to make a collab channel for them, though Keith never got his own. He insisted that he was too awkward to film anything by himself, which Lance secretly found adorable.

Numerous people began telling Lance to prank Keith when he came back, to which Lance grinned. Playing tricks on Keith during live-streams had become somewhat of a tradition in and of itself. “Maybe I will,” Lance tapped his chin thoughtfully. “You guys got any ideas?”

Lance read through some of the responses but saw nothing particularly appealing, then perked up at someone asking when he’d do a video with Hunk again.

“Actually, I got some good news for you guys,” Lance declared, sneezing into his elbow before continuing. “Hunk and I are going to be playing videogames on Pidge’s channel sometime next week, and Hunk has both of us coming over to his and Shay’s for a baking video. I haven’t decided what we should do for my part yet. Maybe a Q & A?”

Once again, Lance’s eyes scanned through the suggestions until his eyes snagged on one he liked. “Cards Against Humanity, huh? With YouTube’s shitty new rules it could get demonetized, but I do love that game, so why not? I’m positive Pidge owns it, and I can tell them to bring it over. Maybe I can even convince Keith to play with us.”

Lance couldn’t help but smile at the enthusiastic response that got.

“I think I’m going to get myself some more coffee,” Lance decided, looking down at the empty mug resting on a coaster. “Last night Keith made me watch this really scary movie, so I naturally had trouble falling asleep. Gotta have coffee to keep myself functioning. Do you guys prefer coffee or tea? Keith and I are both coffee people, but he likes his black. No sugar or anything, disgusting if you ask me.”

Lance almost regretted this comment as a war of opinions on black coffee slowly took over his computer screen.

“Well, anyway, I’m gonna go to the kitchen real quick. I’d bring my laptop but… I’d probably spill coffee on it, and we can’t have that.”

Lance stood, and was about to start towards the next room when his vision abruptly blurred and refocused. He knew immediately something was wrong.

His legs felt like jelly, and the room seemed to spin as he took a single step forward. Had he only been fine when he was sitting? Lance had half the mind to sit right back down, but his brain was growing muddled, and direction simply didn’t make sense.

Lance’s migraine flared abruptly in intensity, and then suddenly the wood floor was rushing up to meet him. Everything went dark.


Keith glanced at his phone as he moved around to the back of the car, where he’d stored the groceries, and had to repress a fond smile at the Twitter notification on the screen. Lance was, apparently, live-streaming. Keith thought he might actually miss his time-slot for once, but he figured by now he should be used to the Cuban boy’s dedication to routine.

Lance’s channel got some negative feedback from more ‘sophisticated’ YouTubers for being… all over the place. A dedicated beauty guru, or PrinceLotor as his channel was called, had dragged Lance on Twitter on more than one occasion.

Lance was anything but consistent when it came to videos. He did whatever he felt like doing that week, and the fans loved it. Sometimes he played songs on his guitar, sometimes he did prank-calls. He would film Q&A’s, or tell stories about all the interesting stuff that happened in his life— Lance’s bad luck was rather famous. He recommended TV shows, did hauls of what he got for holidays, vlogged on occasion when he went to stores, you name it.

But Lance’s favorite thing to do were collabs.

Hunk, an incredibly smart engineer, had a baking channel as a hobby, and Lance was his favorite assistant.

Pidge was a newer gaming channel, but their obsession with theorizing about the game’s lore while playing and busting other fan theories made them grow in popularity quickly. For two player games, Lance was ideal.

Allura was an extremely popular beauty channel, and Lance let her give him makeovers whenever she wanted to. Shiro could use extra actors in his short films.

And Keith… well, the two of them had a channel together that had no pattern whatsoever, much to Lance’s dislike. Absolutely spontaneous and random, usually doing things by popular fan request, like dancing or karaoke. And uploads were by no means regular.

Keith was surprised at how much he had started to enjoy it. Lance had been telling him he should start an art channel, with animations and speedpaints and the like, and Keith wasn’t… that opposed to the idea. It could be a useful source of income, to help with all the debt he would come into after graduating college. But he’d never tell Lance.

Without thinking too much of it, Keith swiped right across his screen, taking him to Lance’s tweet about the live-stream in order to like it. He was about to close his phone again and begin taking groceries up to their apartment when his eyes snagged on something odd.

Lots of the replies to Lance’s tweet mentioned him, particularly the recent ones, even tagging him in it. Keith couldn’t fathom why they would be talking about him if he wasn’t on the stream, unless Lance was complaining about him live again.

Keith bristled. Lance better not be still annoyed at him for the movie the last night. Signs wasn’t scary at all, and not even a real horror movie! Lance simply stated that ‘he didn’t mess with aliens.’

But when he looked at all the mentions, Keith felt his irritation give way to confusion, and then panic.

“KEITH GET TO UR APARTMENT”, “YOU BETTER GO CHECK ON LANCE”, “HOLY SHIT HES COLLAPSED KEITH HURRY YA ASS UP”, and the one that really sent Keith reeling “UH GUYS IS IT JUST ME OR DID WE WITNESS LANCE’S DEATH ON CAMERA?”

Keith slammed the trunk, all groceries forgotten as he sprinted into the apartment building and ran for the stairs. They only lived on the third floor, and he was not about to wait for the slow, crowded elevator.

He fumbled to fit his key in the lock and opened the door to the living room, only to spot the live-streaming set up, with no Lance. Keith rushed forward, but drew up short when he realized that Lance was in fact passed out on the floor in front of the couch.

“Oh my god— Lance!” Keith sank down beside him, turning his boyfriend over. “Lance, are you okay? Can you hear me?”

Lance’s eyes opened slowly, and Keith felt relief flood his system, despite the uncharacteristically pale skin. “K-Keith? Wha… I thought you were shopping?”

“I’m back,” Keith answered shortly, wincing as he pressed a hand onto Lance’s forehead. “Jeez, you’re on fire. Why didn’t you tell me you were this sick?!”

“Are you a fire?” Lance mumbled under his breath, and Keith furrowed his brows in confusion.

“What? No, Lance, I was saying you have a fever.”

“Because you’re hot and I want s'more,” Lance continued, as if he hadn’t heard him at all. Keith was suddenly painfully aware that the live-stream was still going, and that his face was even more flushed than Lance’s, and not because of a fever.

Keith glanced at the computer sitting on the coffee table briefly, noting that most of the chat was full of random keyboard smashing. He smiled apologetically. “At least he’s conscious,” he shrugged, hoisting Lance up off the floor and propping one of his arm’s around Keith’s shoulder. “I’m going to take this idiot to the hospital, he’s way too hot.”

“So you finally admitted it,” Lance’s voice was barely audible, and Keith glanced back down to see him grinning up at Keith tiredly.

“I meant your temperature, dumbass. Next time, tell me when you’re not feeling well.”

And with that, he shut off the stream.

From Dan’s Rush AMA
  • He’d like to possibly cover Closer to the Heart by Rush in the future
  • His favorite concert of Rush’s he’s seen (out of 11) is the R30 tour in 2004
  • His favorite thing he’s seen them play live is Xanadu
  • He doesn’t plan on trying to start playing an instrument (aside from the bass which he has said he’s mediocre at) because the band he’s got now has such awesome musicians that he wants to focus on being the best vocalist he can be
  • His favorite Skyhill song is Run with the Hunted, and his least favorite is Only One
  • His favorite Rush song to play on the bass is Fountain of Lameneth (but it’s hard)
  • It’s pretty likely that there will eventually be a new Skyhill song or album
  • He first saw Rush in 1994 in NJ at the Brendan Byrne Arena. He’s seen them on every tour since.
  • He’s hoping that next year they’ll be able to tour in the UK, and he’d like to be able to tour in Australia too at some point
  • What influenced him most from Rush is their chord choices, their worth ethic, and their integrity.
  • If he could perform vocals on one song with Rush, it would probably be Time Stand Still
  • His best Rush-related experience was zoning out by himself as a kid and letting their music take his imagination places
  • His favorite Rush albums are A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, Caress of Steel, and 2112. His least favorite (though he still loves them!) are Hold your Fire, Counterparts, and Snakes and Arrows
  • The most direct way that Rush has affected him is that they helped inspire him to commit his life to music.
  • His top 3 songs are Xanadu, Hemispheres, and Fountain of Lameneth
  • He started listening to Rush at 13 and he became obsessed with them. He sang their music to himself all day during school.
  • When asked how many Rush shirts he has, his answer was “Too many!!”
  • A Farewell to Kings is his alltime favorite Rush album
  • What initially caused him to enjoy Rush was that it was an awesome sound that he’d never really heard before and lyrics that appealed to his nerdy Lord of the Rings loving self.
  • His favorite >10 minute Rush track is (possibly) Circumstances
  • “ I’m more Jewish by culture than by religion. I certainly believe that there’s a lot to life and the universe that we don’t understand, and I respect anyone who finds their answers in religion, but it’s never been a big part of my life personally.”
  •  His favorite Rush show to watch is one from Rio
  • The song he’s most proud of is 6969 because it’s a comedy prog song, which is something he’s always wanted to do.
  • His favorite part of 2112 is the overture
  • Hemispheres will always remind him of his freshman year of high school. He listened to it constantly.
  • Both him and Arin write the lyrics to Starbomb songs
  • He feels an immediate kinship with other Rush fans. “We’re like a world-wide secret club!”
  • The rush album he feels is most underrated is Presto
  • The first Rush song he listened to was Roll the Bones
  • He would be interested in giving talks about music/comedy/career stuff at colleges or high schools if there was an audience for it.
  • He got into Rush at age 12 because the guy that worked at his local comic book shop (named Keith) introduced him to them. “God bless that man.” Before he discovered them he listened to a lot of Def Leppard and Nirvana
  • Q:  if you were to start your career again today, where would you start? Youtube / twitch / podcasts?
    A:  I don’t think I’d do anything differently because even the years of “failure” taught me a lot and allowed me time to improve. Once that spotlight is on you, you’d better be ready for it. I’d say start in the medium that inspires you individually the most and work as hard as you can on it from there.
  • Q:  how do you think the future of NSP has changed now that you guys have topped the motherfucking charts with Under the Covers?? You guys fucking rule and I’m so happy for you and your multitudes of success!
    A:  Thank you! We were psyched that our recent albums have charted so well, but I don’t think we’ll do anything differently. We’ll just keep doing what feels right to the best of our ability!
  • 6969 came together quickly when writing it. The video only took so long because it was such a huge jump in ambition and it has a learning curve. “If we do something like that again, things should go a lot more smoothly!”
  • The Pass has helped him through some tough times.
  • (I believe) that the lyrics he’d get as a tattoo are “ All of us get lost in the darkness Dreamers learn to steer by the stars All of us do time in the gutter Dreamers learn to look at the cars!”
  • Q: What would you say is the best dish at Olive Garden?
    A: The dish where you get up, walk across the street, and eat at Outback Steakhouse
  • He meditates in silence before a show because he’d get overhyped if he listened to music.
  • Doesn’t have a favorite member of Rush, “it’s an equilateral triangle”
  • Says Moving Pictures is usually a safe bet to start off with introducing someone to Rush
  • He picked Madrigal and Subdivisions for the first UTC because he loves them and they’re easy to sing. “I don’t know if I could hit some of those crazy high notes Geddy rocked in the 70s”
  • He thinks Witch Hunt would be a very good song to cover.  Such a great song and so relevant right now! “Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand”
  • His favorite song to try and fail at on bass is YYZ
  • “ I don’t think there’s any conscious decision to have Rush influence my music, but I’ve spent so many thousands of hours listening to them, it’s inevitable that it just comes out naturally”
  •  His favorite album to work on in his career is what he’s doing now (UTC2 and Cool Patrol) because “we’ve grown so much and finally have a full band!”
  • He doesn’t mind when fans are super nervous to meet him. He was nervous when he met Rush, too, “so it’s just the circle of life!”
  • He chose bass because it was different and fun to find submelodies.
  • Q:  Hey Dan! I’m looking forward to Under the Covers 2. I started writing comedy music and NSP is one of my main inspirations. What do you wish you knew about writing comedy music earlier on in your career?
    A:  Nothing in particular really. You learn and you go and there’s no substitute for just doing something over a long period of time. Of course there are things I would change about our early work, but it was the best we could do at the time so I have to be cool with it.
  • “I listened to so much of them [Rush] growing up that it’s in my blood and unconsciously shapes the way I approach music”
  • His second favorite album flops between Hemispheres, Caress of Steel, and 2112 on any given day
  • His favorite story/message told in a Rush song→ Story is Fountain of Lameneth because it’s a beautiful summary of life. Message is Spirit of Radio where they talk about the importance of integrity in art.
  • His biggest influences are Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Nirvana, Spacehog, and Gentle Giant (to name a few)
  • He does his best on his Rickenbacker bass but it’s just for fun. “My band already has a bass player that’s better than I’ll ever be!”

“Thanks everyone! I have to go see my family now otherwise I’d stay longer. Sorry I couldn’t get to everyone’s questions but I had a lot of fun. I’d be happy to do this again in the future!
You being fans of mine means the world to me and I promise to keep making comedy and music for a long time! Thanks to you, the moderators who set this up, and of course Rush for being an awesome and inspirational force!”

What about the RFA and Unknown and V finding out that MC has a career in the arts (author, artist, actor or something like that?) @saeranlover

Yoosung:

  • It was always a lingering thought in Yoosung’s mind
  • The thought always came randomly, but sometimes he swore that he  recognized your voice
  • Like the one time you yelled “Come at me!” at a friend who was teasing you and he just froze for a second to think about why it sounded familiar
  • It wasn’t until one day he was testing out a LOLOL character he’s never played before and she screamed out a line of dialogue before her attack
  • And suddenly he heard your voice behind him perfectly recreate the line
  • He turned around to see you cheekily grinning from your place on the bed
  • But it was wiped off your face soon enough because baby boi just pounced you into a big hug

  • You giggled as he rapidly asked you other things you voice acted in and gawked when he recognized the other characters you’ve voiced in games and cartoons
  • He’ll shyly ask you to reenact his favorite lines or scenes and his inner fanboy will show
  • Yoosung’s never really been into the behind the scenes stuff but he already somewhat was a fan of yours before so he’s basically dating his favorite VA
  • Silly lil’ peanut is gonna ask for your autograph on his merch of the characters you’ve voiced

Jaehee:

  • She found out during one of your nights in
  • You were in the kitchen preparing the snacks while Jaehee sorted through the set of musicals the two of you had rented for tonight (you finally convinced her that watching ‘Promiscuous Jalapeno’ for the 8th time in a row was a little much)
  • Once that was all said and done, you cuddled up to Jaehee while the movie started as she fed you popcorn
  • Oh crap, you recognized this movie
  • You actually got the part of the main dancer in this film (it was your typical dance batte film)
  • You somewhat never wanted her to find out  that you were an actor/dancer in fear of always being compared to Zen
  • Once your character was introduced, Jaehee’s eyes squinted a little at the screen before gasping and shaking your shoulders
  • “MC, MC, IS THAT YOU?”
  • “U-uhm nooooo…?”
  • “Wait, why would you keep this secret from me?”
  • After explaining your reasoning as to why, she just pulled you into a tight hug
  • “I’d never compare you anyone else, I love you just the way you are, famous or not!”
  • After watching the movie, she put aside the time to scour the internet for every performance you’ve been in and is about to be the proud owner of all your merch
  • jaehee please no that was our grocery money

Zen:

  • “lolol zen have you seen mc’s latest cover?”
  • “Cover? What’re you talking about?”
  • “the one on her youtube channel???”
  • “…”
  • “you do know what she does for a living, right??”
  • After Seven endlessly mocked Zen for not knowing what his own girlfriend did for a living, Seven graciously provided the link to your Youtube channel
  • Zen then proceeded to spend the next 3 hours of his life going through
  • your entire channel
  • He knew that you liked to sing and sounded like an angel but this
  • This is something extraordinary
  • You actually made a living doing this and he never even knew!
  •  He finally made his way up to your latest cover (which was uploaded about a week ago), and HO L Y  C R A P
  • It was the song he’s practiced at home for months on end for a musical he recently just starred in!
  • When you get home that night, you’re bombarded with compliments and questions (mostly compliments)
  • You explained that you never recorded around him because you were afraid that he might’ve thought you were going to use him for popularity
  • “Babe, I know you would never do that NOW WILL YOU PLEASE DUET WITH ME–”
  • Guess who has the best mashup cover of ‘Butterfly’ now

Jumin:

  • Coming home a few hours early was indeed a rare occurrence for Jumin
  • Usually when he came home, you were instantly there to greet him with a hug and kiss
  • He called your name, but there was no response, just a faint typing sound
  • After hanging his coat on the coat hanger, he began walking towards the noise, his hands already working on loosening his tie
  • “Ah, here you are, my love,” he said upon entering the officeroom
  • “Jumin, you’re home early,” you smiled, letting your husband wrap his arms around your shoulders and resting his chin atop your head
  • “The office had to close early for some renovations,” Jumin explained, “but I’m more interested in what you’re working on.”
  • “I’m working on my next book!”
  • The surprised look on his face made you remember that you never brought it up to him before, but now is as good as time as any to explain
  • Jumin seemed genuinely intrigued as he listened to your explanation on your book series, which was apparently very popular
  • When you finished, he asked if you could lend him the first addition, as he did enjoy reading in his spare time
  • And soon enough, he was hooked
  • He’d have long talks with you over dinner on how he wasn’t expecting a plot twist or how well you wrote your characters
  • Or about how you should hurry and finish the next book because you left him on a cliffhanger

707:

  • He’s known since the background check that you had a job in digital art but he tucked that away in the back of his head because there were too many other things happening at the time (eg the hacker, your sudden appearance, his emotions and job…)
  • It isn’t until one day where he’s been able to work for a few hours straight without you lecturing him about how he should take a break
  • So he got up from his chair, slapped his right leg a few times to wake it up, and ventured outside his office to find you
  • To no surprise, you were huddled inside in the bedroom, but this time with your drawing tablet in hand
  • “Hey Saeyoung,” you tiredly muttered, eyes still glued to the laptop screen
  • His eyes trailed to where you were looking and a look of mock hurt morphed on his face, “MC, how dare you draw a picture of another man!”
  • You stifled a laugh at your boyfriend’s dramatic tone, “Zen just asked me to draw some things for his website so I’m–”
  • You should me drawing me instead! Here, I’ll even pose for you!” 
  • You regret even looking behind you, because Saeyoung was already stripping down to his boxers, need I remind you the pair with cat faces on them
  • “DRAW ME LIKE ONE OF YOUR FRENCH GIRLS.”
  • “SAEYOUNG PUT YOUR CLOTHES BACK ON AND GET TO BACK TO WORK!”

V:

  • Usually you were making some sort of noise in the house, but today you were oddly quiet
  • “MC? Where are you?”
  • “I’m in the living room,” you hollered back as he started making his way over, “Be careful not to bump my arm though.”
  • “What’re you doing?” he asked, taking a seat on the floor next to you
  • You explained that you liked paint and used it as a way to make some extra pocket money
  • V was very happy and excited to hear that you had an artistic career just like him
  • You were always delighted to describe the paintings to him, and you always did it with such passion
  • After awhile, he started to miss photography and he so badly wanted to see your work for himself
  • So he decided to get the eye surgery
  • Once he did, he was shocked at how much he can see your heart poured onto the canvas
  • You often went out into nature together and sit there together for hours to photograph/paint and enjoy one another’s company
  • You also loved painting some of V’s older photographs and he loved it and every single one is framed in the house
  • #artsycouple
  • The day you painted a picture of the sun and gave it to him, he cried

Unknown:

  • The first time Saeran ever walked into your room, his eyes immediately darted to the big, colorful collection of sticky note pads on your desk
  • He picked one up, noting that every one had a slightly different drawing than the others, “What’re these for?”
  • “Oh, I’m an animator! I like to use these sticky notes when I’m bored.”
  • He never got to watch cartoons as a child so this was all new to him
  • Watching you peacefully work is very, very soothing to him, to just watch the lines fill with color so smoothly
  • You even let him have some of your already drawn-on sticky note pads and he likes to flip through them when he’s nervous or needs to calm down when something’s bothering him
  • His favorite is the one you made for him where it goes “I love you, Saeran!” with a cute little doodle of a cartoony-looking you kissing his cheek on it
  • As mentioned before, he never got to watch cartoons or movies as a kid and he’s willing to watch the ones you’ve worked on
  • It always amazes him that you made what was on the screen and he loves it (he’s never said it out loud but it shows on his face)
  • He really enjoys the ones that are story-based rather than the nonsense slapstick ones (which is what Saeyoung enjoys, much to his dismay)
  • Seeing the childlike innocence in his eyes is heartwarming and you wouldn’t trade it for the world 
BTS REACTION: Them being insecure and you comforting them

@thewitchofthewillowtree Thanks for everything, you’re such a doll 😭.

Seokjin

He was on top of you, kissing you slowly, breaking the kiss only to remove his shirt. You were staring at him, taking in his beautiful face and body. “Everything about you is so sexy,”. Seokjin laughed, “Not my fingers”. Despite the fact that he meant it as a joke, you didn’t appreciate the joke because you knew he was insecure about them. You demanded his hand and after he gave it to you, you stared into his eyes and sucked them one by one. He watched you with lust and surprise on his face. “Like I said, every part is incredibly sexy. Because they’re apart of you, and I love YOU,”. Smiling his kissed your lips softly. “Thank you Jagi, I love you too,”.

Namjoon

You were watching Namjoon during his photo shoot, unable to tear your eyes from the gorgeous man in front if you. The sexy looks and smiles he sent your way made you eager to have him alone. So as soon as you entered your home, you threw him on the couch, straddling him. “You don’t know how sexy you are,”. He chuckled, “I really don’t,”. You could tell by his expression he meant it. “Why don’t you believe you’re good looking?”. Shrugging, he looked away from you. “I was always told by fans that I wasn’t,”. You slowly slid peppered kisses on his jawline “I happen to think you’re perfect,” you said looking into his eyes. He blushed and pulled you close for a deep kiss. “I love you,”.

Yoongi

The two of you were walking a fairly busy street at night, drinking coffee and talking. You were excited about pictures from his most recent concert and raved about how handsome and sexy he was. Chuckling, he made an off hand comment: “I’m not good looking,”. You paused and glared at him. “I am SO sick of you saying things like that! Matter of fact…”. You walked over to the nearest bench, stood on it, and screamed, “MIN YOONGI IS THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE!! I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM!! HIS EYES, HIS SMILE, HIS LIPS, EVEN HIS NOSE IS CU-”. Wrapping his arms around you waist, he snatched you down for the bench and covered your mouth. “OKAY I GET IT Y/N”. Pulling you along after him, he muttered a thank you as you noticed the blush on his face.

Hoseok

“The maknaes deserve to go on Hit the Stage more than I do,”. As soon as Hoseok said those words, you got upset. He had filmed for a variety show the other day and the episode finally aired while he was at practice. The words upset you because he always underestimated his abilities. When he came home and greeted you, you told him you needed to speak with him. He became nervous and asked why and you showed him the clip. “Why do you do this?? We all know you work harder than ANYBODY on the choreography! Dance is YOUR thing!! Jimin and Jungkook have plenty of other things. Let yourself have a chance to shine, okay?? STOP UNDERESTIMATING YOURSELF, YOU’RE AMAZING!!”. By time you finished you were yelling and he was silent. “Baby, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to yell I just…wish you’d believe in yourself a bit more sometimes,”. Wrapping his arms around your waist, he shook his head. “No, you’re right Jagi. I’ll be more confident, okay?”

Jimin

He was distant all day and wouldn’t tell you what was wrong. It was late afternoon and you had finally had enough. You strolled into the bedroom and jumped on him where he lay. When he made no attempt to move you, you straddled him. “Ya! Park Jimin! You’re gonna tell me what’s going on RIGHT NOW. I’m your girlfriend, let me support you,” you demanded angrily. He sighed and pulled you into his arms, hiding his face in your neck. “I gained 20 lbs…are you disgusted with me?”. You didn’t respond, only pulled away from him and began to tug at the hem of his shirt. He started to object, wanting to be serious but you simply said, “Take it off,” in a tone he’d never heard you use. After he complied, you kissed him slowly and softly, tasting him throughly. Then you trailed wet kisses along his jawline, neck, and chest. You made sure you take sure to go excruciatingly slow on his stomach, placing kisses so gentle he found it endearing. “Jimin, no matter what you look like, I’ll always love you.But if you must know, you’re perfect to me,”. He began to get teary and he pulled you into his arms, not trusting himself not to cry if he spoke.

Taehyung

“Y/N, am I…wierd?”. You cocked your head at Taehyung when he asked you that question. “Did something happen?” you asked. “Well, the fans still tease me about being super wierd so I was just wondering if I should stop..”. You got irritated by that, “Stop what? Being yourself?”. Before he could respond you grabbed his shoulders and looked him in the eyes. “You just think differently than others. Even if you do act a little crazy sometimes, it’s not a bad thing, Tae. In fact, your crazy, overactive personality is what I love about you. So don’t let anyone stop you from being yourself,”. Smiling, he drew you into his arms, cooing about how cute you were, smoothering you in kisses.

Jungkook

“Take it from the top,” the man said with obvious frustration. Jungkook sighed, leaned into the mic and began singing the song beautifully. That is, until he suddenly cut off for the 6th time in a row. “You know what? I think we need a break. Take 10 everybody,” the man announced, drawing a hand over his face. He turned to you. “Please talk to him. Find out what’s going on,”.

You had come to Jungkook’s recording session for a new solo song to support him. But so far, he seemed highly upset and unsatisfied with everything— specifically himself. You watched as he threw his papers on the floor before sliding down the wall, sitting beside them. You came over to him, placing a hand on his shoulder. “Kook, what’s going on? You sounded amazing, why do you keep getting upset?”. He was visibly upset, a distant look in his eyes. “It’s not good enough. I can’t hit the notes I used to. My voice sounds a lot harsher too..”. Your eyes widen in surprise; you never knew he was insecure about the way his voice sounded, but then again, his voice WAS finally changing. You shook your head and held his head in your hands, forcing him to look at you. “Jungkook, your voice is changing so of course it doesn’t sound the same. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful. It sounds richer and actually those high notes were even better than Jimin’s,”. He chuckled softly at that. You took the opportunity to make him laugh again, because the sentimental stuff wasn’t really either of your things. You stood up and attempt to sing and dance “Cheer Up” by Twice. He laughed so hard tears formed, begging you to stop. You laughed along with him, sitting down again, going back to being talking. “Besides, if you really sucked, Yoongi definitely would’ve told you by now. But seriously…I believe in you Kook. You’re amazing and this song will be too. So you know, give it your best,”. He blushed, pulled you in his arms and shyly kissed you. “I love you,” he whispered.

MASTERLIST // PART TWO

Originally posted by danteko

Keeping a relationship a secret is a good idea, right?

No, not at all.

‘Can’t wait to see you tonight, baby.’

I read Dan’s text message with a huge smile as I stood in front of my closet, trying to figure out what to wear. There were so many options and at the same time there were none.

Dan and I had been dating-ish for two months now without telling anybody. We were afraid of how people would react since nobody would have ever expected us two to get together. We wanted to be sure about this before we told somebody else.

It was a Friday night and Dan’s friends were throwing a party. He invited me to come with him, not as his date though. I was worried about who to talk to tonight since none of my close friends were going and I also didn’t know about how to interact with Dan in public.

I had to park my car a little further away from the house where the party was held at because all of the good parking spots were taken already, signalizing that a lot of people came.

As I walked into the big house so late that Dan must have arrived an hour ago, I immediately spotted him drinking beer with his friends. They were joking about something and laughing out loud from time to time. Since Dan and his friends were by far the most popular and attractive guys in our town a lot of females were surrounding them, trying to start a conversation.

I had to stop myself from smiling at Dan who noticed me the second I walked into the room. He was clearly checking me out in my dress that wasn’t too fancy but he seemed to like it anyway. I also had to stop myself from telling those girls to back off my boyfriend.

Sweaty bodies were dancing to music that was shitty and way too loud. There was alcohol everywhere and people were flirting with strangers while getting drunk. A typical teenager party therefore. Some people just live for weekends like this.

I talked to a few girls that I knew from school. They were updating me on all the recent gossip since I wasn’t good with stuff like that. I never hung out with the ‘cool and scandalous kids’.

“I heard Tiffany tell her friends at school today that she wants to get with Dan tonight.” Jessica, one of the girls I had chemistry class with told me under her breath. I nearly chocked on my drink at her words.

“Dan as in Dan Howell?” I asked her, gritting my teeth while trying to not sound too interested.

“What other Dan is there?” She wanted to know, indirectly answering my question.

Great. Miss Popular was after my guy not knowing that he was already taken. By me!

“Let’s play Truth or Dare” Somebody shouted in between two songs. The response was quite diverse. Some people seemed to really hate the game while others seemed to love it.

“C’mon let’s play.” Jessica excitedly exclaimed, grabbed my arm and dragged me along with her.

“I really don’t wan-“ I was in the middle of saying as she made me sit down on the floor where everybody who was playing was already gathered in a circle.

My eyes suddenly landed on Dan who was sat right opposite me. He didn’t look that comfortable either and I could clearly hear his friend Jason tell him “I bet it will be fun, don’t be so boring!”

There was a little twinkle in Dan’s eyes as he saw me and he raised his eyebrow surprised to see me here. He was looking as handsome as ever. His hair was a little bit curly and he was wearing the black leather jacket that I loved so much on him.  

A guy I had never seen around before started spinning an empty glass bottle and it landed right on Jason, making Dan smirk.

“Truth or Dare” the guy asked Jason. He obviously said ‘Dare’ since he was an outgoing guy and up for almost any challenge.

“I dare you to knock on the neighbour’s door in just your underwear and ask him if you can borrow a jar of peanut butter.”

“What the fuck, mate?!” Jason shouted as everybody laughed and some girls giggled.

“What’s wrong with you?” he asked the guy who dared him to do this as he started to take off his shirt, revealing his toned chest.

People started to whistle as Jason walked to the door and opened it wearing nothing but his boxers.

“It’s freezing outside!” he complained as he wrapped his arms around his own body for warmth, shielding his nipples from the cold air of the night.

He quickly ran across the street, as he saw that no car was in sight. The neighbour, a 50 year old man, was not too pleased to see Jason.

“I’m going to call the cops, you dumb pack of teenagers!” he shouted after Jason as he sprinted back into the house after he was obviously denied some peanut butter.

We were laughing our butts off while Jason’s cheeks were bright red from running and embarrassment.

“It will be fun, right?” Dan asked Jason, making me giggle.

We continued playing and after a few rounds the bottle still hadn’t landed on me or Dan. One of Tiffany’s friends was just dared by a guy to take her shirt off was now spinning the bottle in a pink Victoria Secrets bra.

It landed on the devil herself, Tiffany.

“Dare” she said and I already had a weird feeling in my stomach region.

“I dare you to kiss Dan for at least 10 seconds.”

My mouth hung open as I tried to suppress a gasp.

Tiffany was seductively smirking at my boyfriend whose eyes had grown wide in shock. He was taking a quick glance at me. His face spoke of panic as Tiffany said, “A dare is a dare, right?”

With that being said she pressed her lips onto my boyfriend’s, making my heart sink. And those 10 seconds were the hardest 10 seconds of my life.

1

I swallowed hard although my mouth was completely dry

2

I tried looking away, but I couldn’t 

3

My blood started to boil as I watched Tiffany eagerly kiss my boyfriend

4

My cheeks grew bright red as anger filled every inch of my body

5

I wanted to rip my heart out just so it wouldn’t hurt that much

6

I wanted to yell for them to stop but I had to sit here in silence

7

My hands started to shake with anger as they were clenched into fists

8

My eyes got watery and the first tears were about to spill

9

I decided to get up and leave, not being able to bear this anymore

10

Dan pushed Tiffany off his body right before I could get up to leave.

“Y/N is my girlfriend!” he shouted and all eyes suddenly landed on me.

Words: 1585

Summary: Dinner b/w The Mantles and (Y/L/N) with a bit of a twist at the end. 

Spoilers: Cute, fluff flashback b/w Reggie and the Reader.

A/N: I had fun writing this so hopefully you guys like it! 

Part One

You arrived home practically speeding home, since for business dinners, your father wants everything at its best. But before arriving you stopped by the flower shop to get tulips for Reggie’s sister Riley (I made this character up) and Pink Roses for his mom Vicky (this is his moms name in the comics). Hoping these were still there favorite type of flowers.

Mom! Dad! I’m home!” You shouted opening the door to your home.

“(Y/N) you’re a bit late, now go on and start getting ready” your father answers you.

“Sorry dad, I stopped at the flower shop as quickly as I could to get flowers for Riley and Mrs. Mantle.” You spoke up and your mother gives you a smile

“Well that’s sweet, now go on take a shower and start getting ready, do you want to give them like that or should I find a vase for them?” your mother asks

“No just like this, I think, you don’t want my help getting the stuff ready?” You question them.

“No honey” your parents answer in sync

“Okay” You nodded and went up the stairs to start getting ready. Wondering why they were acting strange about you looking nice since they usually didn’t care as long as you tried.

You turned on your music and got in the shower, then If we were a Movie by Hannah Montana started playing on shuffle, and you couldn’t help but smile and start singing along to the song that brought a great memory to you.

Flashback:

If we were a movie
You’d be the right guy
And I’d be the best friend
That you’d fall in love with in the end

You and Reggie were watching TV at his house, both 9 years old. You persuaded him to let you watch Hannah Montana with him. His parents were away with Riley at the clinic.  He would pretend he wasn’t enjoying it, but you’d catch him smiling every now and then. You sang along to those lyrics dancing around the living room.

Wish I could tell you there’s a kiss
Like something more than in my mind
I see it could be amazing

Then Reggie got up from the couch and started to walk away, when you grabbed him and made him dance with you. He squirmed to get away, but defeated he did what he knew would get him off your grip. He pretended to start slow dancing with you, so his hands reached your waist and he started to tickle you. You ended up on the floor laughing/screaming “Please! Reg! Stop! Its hurts!”  until you ran out breath to speak. He removed himself and brought water for your dry mouth.

That day was great for you because you and Reggie were growing up and your little group was growing and sometimes you just wanted to spend time with him. You were both about to turn 10 and your parents promised to take you two camping.

Turning off the shower, you grabbed your towel and started to get ready for the dinner. You dried off your hair so you could curl it. A smile plastered on your face to the memory that was now flooding your brain. You could not get yourself to think about anything else, and thought nothing about the fact you could not get Reggie of your mind, you simply pushed that away by lying to yourself that maybe it was better this way since you would have to deal with him and his parents.

You ignored the fact that the memory made you think so much about the old Reggie, Oh the old Reggie was so charming, caring, and you were the only girl in his universe until his sister showed up in your lives when you both were 7 and throughout the years you started drifting apart, not because of her, but the fact that growing up meant changing and you both were no longer into the same things anymore.

It was now 6:50pm as you applied red chapstick, since you weren’t a big fan of makeup, you kept it simple with a bit of black eyeliner to match your dress as well since that’s all you could do.

Your heart sunk the moment you realized you had no dressy shoes, mentally preparing yourself for your mothers’ wrath. You recently bought new converse, and you decided to pair them with “fancy” looking black socks.

It was now 7:00pm when you heard the doorbell ring. And you heard you parents call you, so you made your way out of your room and down the stairs.

You couldn’t help, but smile at Reggie.

He looked amazing in that maroon blazer, white shirt, and black pants. You were glancing at him until your mom took you out of your trance.

“Well well” your mother spoke up “look how handsome you have turned out” She directed a smile at Reggie

You were reaching the last steps and you felt Reggie’s eyes on you.

Man, she looks so beautiful Reggie thought

“(Y/N) you look amazing” was what came out of his mouth as he reached his hand towards you, and you grabbed it and finally made to the last step.

“Um, these are for you (Y/F/Flowers), hopefully they’re still your favorite” you nodded at him as you took the flowers in your hands and you were both staring at each other until Riley broke it by hugging you.

“I missed you sooo much (Y/N)!” The brown haired girl with a huge smile on her face spoke.

“I missed you so much too! Look I got you flowers too” you grabbed her hand leading her to the kitchen island where her and Mrs. Mantle’s bouquets resided. Your dad led the family to the dining room.

“I got you flowers too Mrs. Mantle” you declared when you walked in the dining room with Riley and she took the seat across yours.

“Oh that’s so sweet, but please hold them for now” you nodded “And please call me Vicky” she added on and you smiled placing her bouquet on a small table in the dining room.

As you were about to take your seat, Reggie got up grabbed your chair, so you could sit in it and pushed you in, and took the seat next to you and you both couldn’t help but smile at each other. The parents were on their own side of the table as our mothers brought in the food.

“So what business are you guys doing together?” you spoke looking directly at your father and Mr. Mantle after a few minutes.

“I am going to start a practice at the hospital” your father spoke up taking a drink of his merlot.

“I am going to pitch in some money, to help your father out start the practice” Mr. Mantle added on.

There was a bit of shift in the mood of the dinner now and you somewhat regretted that you asked.

“This Garlic, Basil Chicken is great Mrs. (Y/L/N) the tomato butter sauce really makes it pop” Reggie spoke up to get rid of the awkward silence that you started and you smiled at him and he returned it.

“Why, thank you so much Reggie” your mother spoke up while your father and Reggie’s father glanced at each other.

You and Reggie started to talk, as your parents held up their own conversation and Riley was playing games on her tablet with headphones plugged into her ears you would turn to see the 10 year old, so into her little world.

“Well” Mr. Mantle spoke up “I hope you can keep your end of the bargain” and the dining room went silent, so silent you could even hear the crickets outside chirping.

“(Y/N) do you like Reggie?” Mrs. Mantle broke the silence and you choked on the water you were drinking.

“I really hope you do because your parents and I would love for you guys to date, right?” She kept going and you were so confused as to what was going on and all the parents smiled.

You looked at Reggie who was staring down at his plate with a somber look on his face.

“Um, what is going on?” You finally spoke up and Mr. Mantle and your dad handed you a small stack of papers.

“This is a contract your father has signed in our partnership in the practice, in return I would like for you to date Reggie, during any events we have since he is not popular for his attitude and with you we could have an advantage to these fundraising events” Mr. Mantle spoke up “See honey you are sweetheart, compared to Reggie” he added on.

“You would make it look like he was changing his ways” Your father spoke up and your mother and Mrs. Mantle were just smiling.

You were speechless, you couldn’t get a word out, you could not believe your ears as to how Reggie’s parents were talking about him or your parents who didn’t seem to care about you to agree to such a thing in exchange for money. Instead your body took over and you stood up from your chair and walked out.

Reggie’s POV:

I couldn’t believe the way my parents did that, we had agreed that I would ask her out like a normal teenager. We were 16, and throughout the days I made it my mission to start changing, I know she noticed; but now that plan was out and I had to go out and look for her.

I come to the masses with yet another positivity post in relation to our beloved Nygmobblepot. This might be shorter than the last positivity post since we haven’t received that much information since the last one. But here it goes! 

First off to get this off our plates, a recent article/interview in relation to Queerbaiting came out. Here is the article (x) – In it Robin Lord Taylor talks a lot about Oswald’s sexuality. What made me momentarily shocked was the way he worded one of the claims he makes. It could be an accident, but I thought it was worth noting.

in [the April 24 episode], it’s when the Riddler announces himself and he’s taking pills and he’s having hallucinations and he’s hallucinating Oswald and you can see in those exchanges — not romantically, he didn’t have that for Oswald — but there still was a love and a respect and a need on his part too to connect with him,” Taylor says. 

I bolded the words “didn’t have” because to me it would have seemed easier to say “doesn’t have” considering Edward Nygma doesn’t have feelings for Oswald– or does he? Again, getting this out of the way first because it’s probably not that big of a deal.

Now to talk about 3x15

Since 3x19 is coming out soon and we can expect a few harsh exchanges between these two men, probably more death threats on Ed’s part if we’re being realistic I have things we can remember. 

Don’t forget Edward saying “Someone stronger and smarter. Someone that people would fear. No one else saw that.”

Lucius: Except Penguin?

Edward: Except Oswald.

Let’s not forget the erotic hallucination because Edward was taking pills on purpose to see Oswald. Amy Winehouse’s “Wake up alone” has a very interesting meaning.

If that doesn’t mean something gay coming from Edward’s head I don’t know what does. Ed also halted the song by screaming “Killing you killed a part of me!” which wouldn’t be the case if he didn’t deeply care for Oswald. (More than Isabella because her dying didn’t kill a part of him).

Also, Edward at the end of the episode saying; “I cared about you and I miss you.”

Edward can say anything in 3x19 and never take back what he said in 3x15 or how the audience truly knows he feels. 

There are still things from the old positivity post like Chris Chalk mentioning nygmobblepot and the Gotham twitter being positively suspicious about the pairing. Here is the last Nygmobblepositivity Masterpost if you haven’t read up on it yet (x)

Up next is that new Smaylor interview. There are a few things we can grab out of this interview that are worth noting.

  • “And what we filmed through the end of season 3 it’s like…It’s just we have to keep going. Where we end up in the end of season 3 it’s like…That would have been just a heartbreak to have to stop. Yeah cause it’s really juicy. It’s good stuff.” - Cory Michael Smith
  • Also, it’s worthy noting the last time Robin and Cory were in an interview together was before the screening of 3x06 right before Oswald finally confessed his love for Edward Nygma. Food for thought. 

Also as a small little piece of positivity, I want to remind you all that Ivy’s Perfume is most definitely a plot device and is highly unlikely that it won’t be used again. 

This is more speculation/observation rather than factual. But I think it’s worth noting. With a new released photo from 3x20 we see Oswald and Ed staring at each other. Many fans have noticed the water droplet on Oswald’s noise, but there is also water in his hair, visible if you zoom into the picture. There has been another instance where Edward was in the rain on a balcony in a set photo. We might get a nygmobblepot balcony scene…

Coincidence? I doubt it.

Also, @flyinyoursoup recently met Robin Lord Taylor in her post here (x)  Robin says here that ‘in terms of Ed and Oswald interactions’ 3x19 is his favorite episode. Go check out the full post ♡  

Despite this one other review going around for 3x19 you can read a positive overview of the episode here (x) Things may be tense for Nygmobblepot now, but the resolution to their arc is going to come to a head soon it would seem.

Random Sidenote: The Official Gotham Twitter’s pinned tweet is Nygmobblepots Reunion. See here

Now, I think we just need to reiterate how important these photos are. Stare at them again and then tell me Ed and Oswald hate each other. 

Lastly I’d like to note that we should be prepared for Edward to threaten to kill Oswald again or deny regretting his actions. It isn’t out of character for him to repress his actual feelings about the matter, and very in character for the Riddler to be pissed because his revenge fiasco didn’t go according to plan. Also, Oswald’s also going to want to kill Ed. To avoid cognitive dissonance, Ed is most likely going to want to mirror his harsh threats/advances. Doesn’t mean they won’t come to an understanding in 3x20 or at the end of 3x19.

Make a Move

Word Count: 1, 206

Request: So um requests are open so I was wondering if you could write one where yn and Shawn collabed on a song and they are in a similar situation where Shawn and Camilla were at James Corden’s show and they aren’t together but they both want to be and she’s like you have never made a move and Shawn’s like I always do and then he cuts her off by kissing her and like crazy fluff and the crowd’s screaming and stuff that would be awesome!


The lights were dimmed and the roaring of the audience could clearly be heard throughout the studio. Even in the back, where you and Shawn sat, you could hear every scream emitted as it echoed to the backstage area. People walked around chaotically, continuing to prepare lighting and sound for tonights show. 

You and Shawn had recently released a duet together which had instantly blown up. It reached the top spot on countless charts, played constantly on the radio, and was even up for multiple awards. Due to the success of the song, you and Shawn were constantly invited to different interviews and talk shows to talk about the new song. This also meant the two of you were hardly separated. You did almost everything together at this point, but it wasn’t like you were complaining. From the minute you met Shawn and started writing together, you felt a connection. It had been months since the song came out, but every time you performed it with him, you still felt an undeniable spark. You could tell Shawn could feel it too, but neither of you ever made a move. Neither of you wanted to ruin the great friendship you had created over this song.

Currently, you were backstage at the James Corden show. This was only another stop in the series of interviews, but for some reason, you felt uncontrollably nervous. You didn’t know if it was because of all the fans already screaming your name or the fact that Shawn was sitting only inches from you, but you couldn’t stop the nerves from running through your veins. 

Your leg shook in a continuous beat, telling everyone around you that your nerves were kicking in. You were busy letting your thoughts take over when you felt a large, warm hand settle on your knee. You abruptly looked up to see Shawn with his confused eyes looking into yours. His hand pressed down firmly making sure your shaking stopped.

“Are you nervous?” He asked, tilting his head to the side as he asked the question.

You shrugged your shoulders in response, not really knowing the answer. You didn’t know what was up with you. You just knew Shawn’s hand resting on your knee was not helping.

“You’re never nervous for this kind of stuff. What’s wrong?” He asked, his eyebrows furrowing in sincere worry.

Before you had time to answer, one of the workers came over to you, telling you it was time for you and Shawn’s interview. He ushered you two to the side stage, waiting for the signal that it was time for you to walk on. While walking, Shawn’s hand stayed on your lower back attempting to brush away the nerves, but actually doing the exact opposite. 

It was only a couple minutes before they gave you the signal and the two of you walked on. The crowd erupted into a high amount of screaming, a mix of both you and Shawn’s names, almost making you deaf. The crowd slowly settled down as you and Shawn waved at the audience and sat down on the couch next to James’s desk. James hushed the crowd before turning to you and Shawn.

“Well, it looks like everyone is excited to see the two of you. How are you guys?” He asked. 

The two of you responded, leading right into the serious of questions James had. He asked you about the song, the inspiration, how you two met, and loads of other typical questions. Suddenly, he asked a question off the topic of the song, which made your eyes go wide. Not that you hadn’t been asked it before, but every time you get the question your stomach still flips.

“So are you two together?” James asked, making you and Shawn’s faces burn red as you shook your heads.

“Oh, come on. Are you sure? You’ve never even made out,” You giggled nervously at the joking question, not wanting to answer because you knew your voice would come out shaky.

“No, we have never done that,” Shawn answered, but the uncertainty was clear in his voice.

“I don’t believe you! So you’re telling me you have never made a move, Shawn?” You and Shawn both spoke up quickly, with very different answers coming out.

“No! He’s never tried.”

“I have but she always rejects me.”

You looked at each other wide eyed while the crowd burst into another fit of screaming.

“What do you mean I’ve never tried? I always try! You always blow me off!” He told you defensively while your mouth fell open.

“When have you ever tried?” You asked, crossing your arms. Suddenly, Shawn moved an inch closer to you.

“Right now,” he said nonchalantly as he leaned in. 

You were taken by total surprise. Your body froze. You couldn’t get any part of you to move. All you heard was the earsplitting scream of the crowd and all you could feel was Shawn’s warm lips on yours. It took you a few solid seconds before you could get your lips to move against his, taking in the feeling of the kiss. His hand lay gently on the side of your neck, his thumb caressing your jaw lightly. After what felt like hours, he pulled away. Both of your cheeks turned a hot shade of red as you stared at each other, not knowing what to do next. You were fully aware of the crowd’s sharp squeals as the echoed in your ears, unable to stop. You looked over at James to see his mouth wide open, clearly not knowing what exactly had happened either.

Shawn turned back around, facing James, waiting for something, anything, to move this interview along. James still sat stunned, before closing his mouth and shaking his head slowly. He signaled for the crowd to quiet down, before looking at you two wide eyed again. 

“I promise ladies and gentlemen, that was not staged,” He joked to the audience, clearly not being able to come up with anything else to say to you.

“I think the only thing more fun than watching that was seeing your publicists freaking out as it was happening,” he laughed while pointing over to the side stage where both of your teams were moving frantically. 

You finished the interview, both of you barely talking, not quite sure what to say after that entire incident. You walked backstage before you turned to him, his cheeks still burning red. 

“So was that… like did you… that was real right?” you asked, stuttering over your sentence. He nodded his head shyly as he stepped closer to you.

“It made me mad you said I’ve never made a move. I’ve been trying to make a move on you since we first met. I just had to let you know that…” His sentence faded off as you pressed your lips against his once again.

This time the kiss was more relaxed. Your lips moved easily together without the tension of a crowd watching. His hands rested on your lower back as he pulled you closer to his chest. You separated from the kiss with a huge smile on your face, happy to know he really did feel the same way.

the life and times of ryan ross pt 8

.2015/2016

welcome all! make sure to thank @jen–ne–sais–quoi for the existence of these posts because the poor thing asked to know about ryan and now she probably knows more than she ever wanted to!

here in our final chapter, we shall see what ryan has been up to from where we left off in 2015 to as current as we can be as of today (feb 26, 2017) this is mostly links and pictures because he didn’t actually do a whole lot

alright, early 2015. pretty much all ryan ross does is spend time with friends, mostly dan keyes and ryland blackinton. he goes to coachella and looks lovely in his hawaiian shirt. 

he also posted some teasers about making music on instagram, but we saw no new music. 

the most important thing about 2015 is ryan’s beard. 

look at it. it’s glorious. 

in february/march of 2015 zayn has left one direction (this is a ryan ross post, why is she talking about one direction??? it’s relevant, i promise.) someone thought it would be funny to edit the 1d wikipedia page to day that ryan ross had joined the band. 1d fangirls lost their minds. ryan tweeted “ You guys got it all wrong, the four remaining members of One Direction are joining MY band” 

if you look at his twitter throughout 2015, some of the tweets are vastly different than others. it could’ve been him on drugs, it could’ve been shane morris. personally, i think it was more shane, but the other is a possibility. also in june 2015, he got super fucked up and crashed a PHASES show. there are pictures of it out there, but i don’t think it’s really appropriate to share them. i also vaguely remember someone (z maybe?) asking for them to not be shared because ryan was really embarrassed and upset about it. about the incident he said “Def was having too much fun at the Phases show tonight, I promise I’ll never do it again  again” so there’s that.

then in july ryro got a girlfriend! he began dating model helena vestergaard and it seemed really good for him. it was certainly good for all of us fans because he posted so much while they were together. she also posted a lot about him. there were so many ryan pictures. it was glorious. here are some pics

then the next most important thing of 2015 happened. 

dorothy ross. 

ryan and helena got the cutest puppy in the world

from then on his instagram is pretty much dottie, but none of us mind because she’s precious. 

we also got this monstrosity

that’s all i’m gonna say about that. more helena and dottie pictures. then we get a picture where ryan tells us he’s taking vocal lessons!! and then he posted a teeny clip of a new song!!! more dottie & helena. a video of him learning to box?

don’t forget that this era of ryan likes hockey and baseball. he watches both and plays hockey too. 

halloween 2015. the fucking party. so. you thought we were done talking about brendon urie. we’re not. by 2015, he and ryan are not talking, at all. brendon usually avoids talking about ryan at all. then adam levine (yes, that one) has a halloween party. ryan’s invited because he’s best friends with mickey madden. he goes as a gremlin. well, a mogwai because he’s fuzzy and not scaly, but yeah. 

brendon, dressed as a skeleton and with sarah, was also there. as far as i’m aware, they basically didn’t even talk. brendon goes on to mention it a million times.

btw, by this point ryan doesn’t use his twitter anymore, it’s all just instagram links. there were some tweets earlier in the year that i’ll be talking about in my shane morris companion piece, but basically, shane likes to troll ryan’s fans by tweeting things or posting things on facebook then quickly deleting them.

also in 2015, ryan posts a picture of what seem to be song titles along with promises for making new music (the “shut the fuck up” was in response to someone telling him to go to bed btw) 

we’re now at the end of 2015. it seems like this is when ryan finally disconnects his twitter from his instagram because (except for one) his tweets stop and his instagram continues. he has also dropped shane morris as his manager (thank god)

near the beginning of 2016, ryan tells us that he has written a song for a band called agelast (sadly, that is pronounced ah-gel-ist, not age-last) he posted on both twitter and facebook about this. i’m inclined to believe both posts were actually him, not shane, but who knows. there was this comment on the facebook page that would be nice if it was from him. 

then, also early 2016, he and helena broke up. he was all set to fly to visit her in australia on a long term modeling job, and maybe he did, but that was that on helena vestergaard. she deleted all traces of him from her social media. he continued to play hockey and post pictures of dottie. 

he also bought 5 pounds of sour patch kids, causing all of us to fear for his health. then he starts to become a bit of a recluse. he posts a lot less frequently and it’s usually dottie pictures. 

then he goes to a renaissance fair and saves lives with his look 

easily the most important part of 2016 was when ryan did a surprise performance with dan keyes’ band cologne at emo nite la. it’s everything. EVERYTHING. watch it now. it felt like a nice comeback and he looked GOOD

we also got another tiny song clip. more pictures and videos of dottie. he also modeled some new PHASES merch with Z and Langley 

he went to the beach and we were blessed with this glorious image 

then he turned 30! and jeremy burke & alison harvard threw him a mini party at midnight with pizza! 

also sometime in august, his demo ep was deleted from soundcloud (his whole soundcloud was deleted) along with his site going down and his facebook page being deleted. the only thing we know is actually ryan is his instagram. 

then came halloween. with costumes in the past like et, a sloth, and a gremlin, we knew he would not disappoint. he was link from legend of zelda and he spent a good amount of the party (adam levine’s again, bden was not there) with victoria asher and gabe saporta from cobra starship. have some pics. 

(that’s gabe beside him)

then he “drank some blood” in this adorable video with his vocal coach

throughout 2016, a director named dan adams (glitterworldinc on insta) had been tagging ryan in a lot of pictures. i’m going to make a companion piece for him as well, but i’ll mention him here. he posts pictures of ryan, sometimes with strange captions, sometimes with rude captions. many pictures didn’t have ryan in them, but he was tagged. some pictures were of ryan’s house or around echo park. see more about that in the companion piece. lots of speculation went on about what he was doing with ryan. we’ll get to that in a minute. something more exciting now. the longest clip of new music that makes me cry every single time i listen to it, that callback line. (fun fact, z commented on it and called him space boi which is where i get one of my tags for him)

he looked beautifully goth for new years 

now we’re in 2017!

we found out this year that all the things glitterworldinc had been posting are because ryan’s going to be in his new movie!! he’s playing a character named Dewey Parsons in daniel adams’ new movie starmaker

the newest picture we have from ryan himself is this

and dan adams (glitterworldinc) has recently posted two! one was posted today! 

and that is basically everything i know about ryan ross’ life from the earliest facts i know to today! thank you for coming along on this crazy long ride with me and reading this giant mess. i’ll make those companion pieces here soon, so look out for those!

EDIT: Update!!!!! ryan posted this mere hours after i finished this because he likes to make my life harder (i’m mostly kidding, i love him so much)

his caption: “On all twos Makin tunes on toons”

EDIT NUMBER 2: i should have made an outline for these posts, jesus christ. i told you all in another post that the guitar ryan burned alive would be important later and then i never told you why. the why is because brendon still has it. yep, he has the guitar that ryan burned all the way back in the cabin/pretty. odd. era. how do we know this? oh, just because brendon put it in his literal house of memories. it’s fine, i’m not crying. (it’s not fine, i am crying) the house of memories is a vip thing for this tour where fans can go in and take pictures with a bunch of old panic! things, from the masks from fever era to stuff from the victorious video. i would kill to go. 

CeCi Korea June 2017 Issue: Boys, be the ASTRO!

Summer’s coming and you’re making a comeback. What comes to your mind when I say ‘summer’?
Moonbin:
What comes to mind when you say ‘summer’ would be freedom? I want to light a bonfire at a campsite and spend an enjoyable time. My hometown’s in Cheongju so a lot of times I’d have fun like that when it’s summer.
JinJin: If you’re talking about summer, then of course it’s the sea. I used to enjoy fishing with my family when I was younger. The image of someone fishing paints itself like a memory.
Sanha: I’ve only been to a waterpark once since I was born but it was a lot of fun. I want to go again.
Eunwoo: The sun’s up longer during the summer. It makes me remember how it would still be sunny out even though school has ended and I’m playing soccer. My dad’s really been into hiking lately and I want to tag along too.
MJ: A weather where you have to avoid the sun!  Doesn’t it totally seem like a song title to you? I want to eat watermelon underneath a shady tree.
Rocky: Maybe because I’d sweat more than I usually do but diet is what comes to mind first. Rather than hitting the gym, I want to try a sport that I can enjoy doing so I’m thinking of starting swimming this summer.

Is dieting important even to male idols? Do you regulate your meals as well?
JinJin:
I usually dance intensely so I don’t see the need to purposely go on a diet. When we finish filming for our music videos, I would hear that I’ve unknowingly lost weight.
Moonbin: Before debuting, my diet meals were personally planned and I would have chicken breast and eggs in the mornings. If I’m busy, then it’s one apple. I would eat like that. We’ve decided that we’ll now manage our own selves.
Eunwoo: We don’t pay as much attention to it as girl groups. But even so, we would each put in some care when there’s an important filming and if the other seems like he’s gained weight then we would tell him.

Is there anything after debuting that you want to be better at or something that has attracted your interest?
Eunwoo:
I think I need to continue studying up foreign languages. When we perform overseas, I think it’s polite that we learn their trendy words, dances, etc.. Because we have to do even better.
Moonbin: Me too! And having stamina is more important that I thought. We were always overflowing with energy pre-debut so I didn’t think there was a need to worry about our stamina but as we continuously carried out promotions, I can feel that my stamina’s deteriorating.
JinJin: I’ve recently developed an interest in fashion. If previously I only stuck to the hip-hop style that I like, then now I’m finding ways to wear clothes that fit my body and physical frame.
MJ: I think managing my stamina and just generally taking care of myself is necessary. I try to eat some nutritional supplements too.
Rocky: Seeing as how I’m a rapper, I’ve been thinking lately about how I should read more books. There’s a limit to how much I can write just using my own experiences. I’m reading and not too long ago, I asked Eunwoo hyung to loan me one of his books. It’s a book called but I’ve yet to start on it.
Sanha: I’m relearning the basics of guitar (playing). I want to be better at it. I also want to show acoustic versions of our songs.

That reminds me, aren’t you having your first solo concert in July? Is there a stage that each of you are dreaming of?
MJ:
I want to put smile on the faces of fans who are coming to watch our concert. I’m thinking of having a stage with JinJin.
JinJin: I’m going to do it with you (laughs). After debuting, I don’t think I’ve had the chance to really show my rap so I want to show off a dark rap that matches with original hip-hop.
Rocky: I want to show off a dance stage that’s worthy of hearing comments like “legendary” and “the best”. We don’t have that kind of image yet.
Eunwoo: Shall I go home today and upload one? With a title that says “ASTRO’s Legend.”

underrated songs from bands that had “one hit song”

You know what I’m talking about. A song gets overplayed on the radio and everyone eventually starts to hate it. But what about their other songs? Maybe they have potential? The radio can ruin songs for us, that’s why I limit my radio listening. I’ve always wanted to write out a list of songs from artists that have that “one hit song” that everyone knows. I’m just writing each one as it comes to mind, so the list will probably be all over the place. enjoy.

Gotta Go My Own Way 4 | Calum Hood

I am incredibly sorry for the delay. I’ve been so busy with my life recently (shocker) and I will also be busy my spring break next week so I don’t think I’ll have time to write the finale to WNCIL :( But this time I will keep you guys updated so I don’t disappoint. Enjoy.

Previous Parts 1 2 3


Calum’s POV

Coming back from Mr.Jackson’s room, I hid the piece of paper, that could potentially ruin the relationships around me, under my set of clothes laid out for our gig tonight. It was folded small enough to not be seen underneath my green t-shirt, but as soon as I laid the shirt down on top of it, I heard the knob to the door start to turn. My head whipped around to find the boys and Y/N, her smile still sat on her face as she laughed at something Luke said. I straightened up and leaned my back against the table our stuff was set on, my hands clutching the white painted wood. I flicked my head at them, a signal of ‘what’s up’, and watched as the boys all started to grab their stuff and start getting ready to warm up a little before soundcheck.

“Let’s get ready buddy, soundcheck’s in about 2 hours!” Ashton yelled, throwing my some hairspray to make my hair look more appealing than it was right now. Since the meeting, my hands have just been running through it, the anxiousness hitting me hard.

Y/N came and stood by me, grabbing the bottle and a comb from behind me and smiled softly at me. She sprayed a little bit of hairspray on the comb and lightly fluffed it through my thick hair. She almost at to stand on her tip toes, but she was and has always been the perfect height for me. All the negative and anxious feelings that built up inside of me seemed to vanish when I looked into the light of her eyes. She was too busy focusing on my hair, when all I could do was smile. She noticed my focus, and blushed before pulling the comb away to look at her masterpiece. 

Her hand reached up behind my neck at the baby hairs I had, and slightly tugged on them. The boys had now left the room to find their instruments, leaving the two of us together. My hands found their way to her waist, my fingers rubbing at the cotton shirt material. 

“My handsome Calum…” My smile only grew bigger. Y/N had always been that way with me. She knew how insecure I could get sometimes with Ashton being the buff guy in the band, Michael being the bad boy looking type, and Luke being the fan favorite. There were days when I would just want to hide away from the world because no one ever cared for me. I felt overlooked and under appreciated, but Y/N helped bring that confidence back into myself, reminding me pretty much everyday of how handsome, built, and talented I was. I leaned in and captured her lips with my own and molded them. She instantly melted into me, bringing her other hand to drape over my neck and shoulder. Her chest lunged and pressed up against me, only deepening the very needed kiss. I felt her moan into my mouth, causing me to leave a trail of light kisses from her jaw line to the edge of her collarbone, something I know drives her crazy.

“Calum…” she whispered, “I’m s-sorry I finished the song w-without you…” This caused me to teethe at the skin of her neck, leaving red streaks.

As a second moan escaped her lips, we heard 3 big bangs on the door, followed by a shrieking girl voice. 

“Calum! C’mon! The boys are already out here!” A loud, annoyed sigh came out of my mouth, as my forehead landed on Y/N’s shoulder. I could feel her body tense up beneath me, and her skin started getting warm. I rubbed my hand on her lower back to reassure her that there was nothing to worry about, but in reality, she had everything to worry about. 

“It’s okay Cal…go get ready for soundcheck, I’ll be on the sides in a little bit.” I lifted my head, my eyes landing on her understanding smile. 

“We’re not finished though.” I smirked, trying to lighten up the ruined mood. Y/N only chuckled at my stupidity, and nodded. I lightly kissed her forehead, and then sprung off the table heading for the door. As I turned the knob, I looked back one last time to see her with arms crossed, watching me.

“Don’t forget, I love you.” We both smiled widely, and she said I love you back.


Y/N’s POV

I turned back towards the table, only to see that Calum’s clothes were still in the room, and now on the floor. I knelt down and carefully picked up his clothes, but suddenly a white piece of paper fell out under his shirt. I set the clothes on the table, a curious look laid upon my face, my eyebrows scrunching together.

It was slightly crumpled, and had tiny font, to the point where I had to bring the paper closer to my face than usual. I saw it was addressed to Calum, but the sentences that I saw in fragments nearly destroyed the butterflies he left in me only a minute ago.

“…solo career…break away from 5 Seconds of Summer…front singer of Hey Violet…great career move…” and so much more was written in this document. My hand fell over my mouth, shocked and disgusted that Calum had this paper basically signing his life away to Hey Violet, to Nia, from 5SOS…from me. I felt utterly sick reading the contract, reading all the perks he could have if he left his band, how much he would be paid, the places he’d travel, the ‘more’ opportunities he could have as a solo artist. But none of that would matter if he didn’t have Luke, Ashton, or Michael. I wasn’t mad so much at the fact that he’d be leaving me, but the fact that he’d be leaving the 3 main people who worked so hard along side him to have their dream of playing arenas for adoring fans a reality. He didn’t stick with them because he knew they could potentially become famous, but because he wanted to conquer the world with them by his side. But ever since Nia came along, she’s tried corrupting Calum, and trying to make him fall for the fame and money, like he promised never to do. And it was almost as if my biggest nightmare, had become a reality.


Soundcheck was just now finishing up, Hey Violet and the boys both emerging backstage since they were both out there. Everybody was all smiles and laughs talking about the funny fan questions, reactions, and signs that they saw from their adoring audience. However, I was sitting on the corner of the couch on my phone, my back pocket burning where the Calum’s contract was. The other 3 boys sat around me, nudging me to see what was wrong, but my eyes only laid on Calum who was laughing it up with Mr.Jackson and Nia, of course. His back was turned to me, as I felt tears start to form in my eyes.

“Wait…Y/N what’s wrong…” Luke whispered lightly in my ear, the other boys leaning in to listen. I shook my head, pulling out my phone and clicking on the picture of the contract I took, showing it to all of them. They’re not only his best friends, but his bandmates and business partners, they deserve a right to know even if it’s not from him.

Luke’s hands balled up into fists, Michael’s face was almost as red as his hair, and Ashton only began to get as watery eyed as I did as they read the dreaded contract. They all looked at him with stares as deadly as daggers, but his back was still turned, oblivious.

“Do you actually have this? Because if you don’t, this is a really sick prank Y/N.” Ashton said sternly. I shook my head defensively, pulling out the folded piece of paper quickly before stuffing it into my back pocket again.

“Why would I fucking lie about this Ashton? He’s been hiding it from us!” I scream whispered. 

“When did you find it? Where did you find it?” Michael asked.

“Today, under his shirt for the set. He was trying to hide it away so nobody would know that he’s fucking leaving.”

“C’mon, Calum may be stupid sometimes but I don’t think he’d be willing to give up the band like that. He wanted this more than any of us, he wanted the band to grow together and get to where we are now as a group, best friends, brothers. He wouldn’t dare leave us.” Luke defended.

“Then why did he hide it from us? Why didn’t he just flat out say no and not take the contract then? Why did he take it in the first place, and then sneak it past us, thinking we wouldn’t ever find out about it? Luke, this isn’t just your best friend, but mine also. Calum is everything to me. I know him as well as you guys, and even I know,” I sighed, before the next sentence came out, “the benefits are just too great. Calum is so straight-forward, if he really didn’t want to take the offer, he wouldn’t have even taken the contract.” 

As my voice died out, we heard behind us the convo of Calum, Mr.Jackson and Nia. Mr.Jackson had left momentarily before hustling back out to the small ‘living room’ we were all hanging out in. There was a huge guitar-bass like case in his right hand, and he set it down at Calum’s both, both him and Nia smiling proudly.

“Open it son. It’s a gift from all of us here.” Mr.Jackson smiled.

Calum carefully bent down and opened the case, revealing a new jet black glossy finished bass, clean and obviously expensive. Calum held it in his hands as if it was a new born baby, gocking at it’s new fine beauty. He was speechless, and beside me I heard all 3 of the boys groan to themselves.

“M-Mr.Jackson…w-why, why did you give me this?”
“Let’s just say, someone put in a good word for you,” he winked at Nia beside him, “and said you deserve it, and I agree wholeheartedly.”

“This…this is incredible, thank you so much!” His smile stretched up to his under eyes, the heartfelt crinkly smile that I adored so much was on his face for all the wrong reasons, and he was slowly becoming the Calum I didn’t know.

My world came crashing down, though, as Nia reached up to Calum’s cheek and placed a tender kiss on it. My heart broke seeing the two together, acting like a more real couple than him and I had this whole tour. Tears broke out of my eyes as they cascaded down my cheeks, my hands and face becoming hot, as I ran back to the dressing room. All eyes focused back on me, a concerned/sad look on everyone else’s face but only a smirk to be found on Nia’s.

As I shut the door behind me, I ran toward the back of the room near the table with all the boys necessities on it and rested my hands on it, letting out a loud sob that I had been desperately trying to hold in. My vision was instantly blurry, soaking the table beneath me. I heard the door creak open, not caring who was there, my almost hopeless state completely taking up my attention.

“Was that fun to watch?” The snarky voice echoed throughout the door. I shuttered as my tears stopped, but still kept my back to her.

“You tell me.” I sniffled.

I heard her chuckle and she walked into the room slowly.

“Why are you doing this to me. I haven’t done anything, to deserve the downright hateful things you have done to me.” I turned around to face her, trying hard to show off that I wasn’t phased or intimidated by her.

“You, little ms.princess, weren’t even suppose to be on this tour in the first place! It was suppose to be Luke’s mom! You haven’t even been doing anything to help Calum out, I’ve stepped in multiple times just to save his freaking job!” I was taken back, and gasped.

“So giving him that contract to become a solo artist is you being helpful? You’re not only trying to control his life, but you’re trying to ruin mine, and my best friend’s!” She could only smirk at my reply.

“You just don’t like the fact that I,won.”

“Is Calum the prize? Is the press and money the prize? No thanks, Nia. You’re very good at a game that I’m tired of playing! So, I guess you’re getting your wish. I’m done here. He’s all yours.” I swiftly grabbed my purse off the table and turned for the door, to see Calum already standing there, arms open for me.

“Baby…c’mon please talk to me.” He pleaded as I walked past him out of the room. “None of this means anything if I don’t have you here by my side experiencing it with me, please, I wasn’t trying to break up apart!”

I stopped in my tracks, my heart sinking at his lies. I angrily pulled out the contract from my pocket, quickly opened it up, and threw it down towards his feet.

“That! That is what’s breaking us apart, Calum! The lies, the sneaking around, the new feelings you’ve developed for Nia! I’m out of here.” I could hear his sniffles as he picked up the crumpled up paper as I stumbled out of the backstage door. But I soon heard his footsteps, coming after me.


CLIFFHANGER! Again, this imagine is based off of HSM2, so any language that’s familiar to you guys in here is from the movie. The next part will be the actual ‘gotta go my own way scene’ just a heads up. And I know this part went by kinda quickly, but I hope you enjoyed it none the less.

Shut up and dance with me

I wrote this for ursulaismymiddlename as a thank you for helping me figure out this world of Tumblr and for the fun talks we’ve had over the last few days!

Her request: Okay, so how about Peter Quill loves to watch you dance around his ship in just your underwear and one of his old shirts.  Sometimes, he can’t keep his hands off of you *wink*

I might be the only one silly enough to wonder how the Guardians would wash their clothes in space, after seeing the movie and especially after getting this request, but there you have it. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this. Let me know what you think!

The title and the lyrics are from the song ‘Shut up and dance with me’ by Walk the Moon!

Hello :3, before I start I just want to say good luck and I hope that your blog becomes successful ^^ Okay, for my request, I wonder about how the RFA (and minor trio if you do them) would react to the MC/Reader being a famous youtuber (like markiplier or jacksepticeye, etc...) okay thank you ^^

Thank you for the sweet message! I love Markiplier and Jacksepticeye too. I’m really sorry this took a while, but I hope this satisfies your request!

Yoosung

·         You run a gaming channel. Haha, did you really expect anything else for this guy?

·         Well, it’s canon that he sometimes records his LOLOL matches, and I bet his dream is to become a famous let’s play YouTuber (I would totally watch his channel tbh)

·         He has no idea that you’re a YouTuber, let alone a famous one at that. In fact, he doesn’t even know what your career is. He assumes it’s something to do with computing or something like what Seven does since he sometimes sees you hunched over a computer screen at 4am after one of his LOLOL rounds. He doesn’t know you’re slaving your ass off, editing your own video so it goes out on time

·         Anyway! This boy probably watches a lot of YouTubers anyway, but his favourite happens to be your channel.

·         He’s a lil suspicious because not only do you eerily sound a lot like that YouTuber, but they also didn’t upload any videos during the time you happened to be at Rika’s apartment. When he tells you this, you say that it is you, but he assumes you’re joking.

·         He finds out you’re said YouTuber when he watches a video where they have a life update and your face is in the thumbnail and throughout the video!

·         He’s stunned, like holy crap he’s dating a really famous YouTuber! A celebrity!!

·         He asks why you never told him and you assumed he already knew and was trying to act ‘cool’ about it – the signs were there, such as staying up late and isolating yourself for a couple of hours a day (though tbh you’re probably filming when he’s at college so you can spend more time together when he returns home).

·         He’s super willing and eager to appear in one of your videos! Will you two play LOLOL? He doesn’t mind playing Persona or Overwatch either, since these are the two series you said you would record next. But he’s really fucking creeped out when you start playing Mystic Messenger – like wtf this is so meta??

·         You ask him to play Dead or Alive with you for your next video… poor thing can’t look at the screen or you and his face is so red that it’s kind of funny. He didn’t know it was this sexual! He swears that he isn’t looking at the boobs!

·         Eventually, you do get around to playing LOLOL with him (a fan requested it under the name shooting-star… hmmm totally not fooling anyone, Yoosung) and he’s really excited to play with you! He’ll blabble on about it while he kicks your butt, and surprisingly doesn’t get annoyed when you start doing some really stupid shit instead of fighting the monster.

·         Sometimes he gets a little jealous that companies send you games for free to review, but tbh everyone would be like that?

·         Also, he occasionally gets a little sad because why would someone so awesome and popular like you want to date someone like him? But you keep reassuring him that you truly do love him, and just because you have a lot of fans doesn’t mean you care about him any less. Heck, you even tell him that you would quit your career just to prove your fame plays no factor in your relationship. “MC, don’t delete your channel just because of me!”

·         He comments positive things on all your videos and usually starts a comment war if someone writes something mean. Nobody deserves to say that about you!

·         Often you catch him binge watching your videos over and over – he loves the compilation videos! He also likes the videos where you talk about your relationship with him because it makes him feel extra special.

·         You let him review your videos before they go out, and while he does love being able to watch them first, he can’t bring himself to criticise your videos, since to him they’re perfect!

·         He’s a slightly worried about you going to meet and greets, and gets jealous when other guys start flirting with you and looking at you in a lustful way. But you aren’t going to be swooned by all that, since you only have eyes for him.

·         He becomes the coolest kid in his college and suddenly everyone wants to be his BFF. Smol bean loves the attention

·         You encourage him to start his own channel, and soon you become a YouTube power couple. However, this means people often write fanfics and fanart about you two, and while he really loves the attention, sometimes some of the more NSFW stuff can make him very flustered.

Zen

·         Since he’d be much more active on social media as he becomes increasingly popular, it’s only natural that one day he’s going to stumble upon one of your videos, if he hasn’t already guessed from the camera equipment, the amount of time you spend editing your videos, all the packages you get from nail polish companies who want you to review their products, and so forth.

·         Still, one day his social media is flooded with messages from fans telling him to watch some video; apparently some famous YouTuber had made nail art inspired by his latest musical. He wasn’t too interested in nail polish and such, but he wanted to know who it was so he could thank them!

·         But the YouTuber’s name… the voice… it was you!?

·         You were awesome at nail art! It looked stunning, he really liked your sense of humour, and he couldn’t help but smirk as you gushed about his acting skills and handsomeness. He wondered why you never told him before, but was there really any time to when you nearly got kidnapped and inducted into a cult?

·         You notice that you’ve gained an influx of fans who are all obsessed with Zen shortly after… turns out he promoted your channel to his fans!

·         He loves how you inspire your fans to try anything they want in life -  you made a YouTube account when everyone said you would never be famous, and now you have a ton of subscribers.

·         He’ll be a lil’ jelly that you have way more fans than him, but that won’t change his love for you! Just like him you started from the bottom so he hopes one day he can emulate your success. So, he completely supports your career! He knows how it feels to not be supported and told he shouldn’t pursue what he loves, so naturally he’s your biggest champion.

·         He gets concerned that maybe a lot of guys watch your videos, but when you show him that 90% of your audience is teenage girls, his concerns are quelled. Nobody is going to be writing crude comments about his princex!

·         Even though he loves your nail art and wishes it could be framed, he’s kind of traumatised by your peelie bag. But don’t get him wrong, he does find the peel porn satisfying!

·         He can’t seem to understand your obsession with holographic nail polish, however. It’s pretty, but he can’t understand why you literally only wear that kind of nail polish. He’s also amazed by all the nail polish you have when you move in with him - the amount you have covers an entire wall.

·         He leaves lovely comments on each of your vids. If anyone writes a mean comment on your videos he’ll probably rant at the commenter and shower you with praise, saying that you shouldn’t worry about shitty comments like that!

·         He’s down for a collaboration video! He would’ve let you paint his nails but he was kind of terrified by the fact you wanted to get rid of his cuticles with “Dexter-level acid stuff”. So, you let him paint yours! He’s pretty good at it, but at first, he kept getting the polish on your skin and you nearly cried because you HATE NAIL POLISH REMOVER.

·         He also does a voiceover on one of your videos and memes have been made about it. “MC, don’t put a matte top coat on, I can’t see my reflection!”

·         He’s waiting to do a boyfriend tag, though. Don’t leave him waiting!

·         Sometimes he ‘accidentally’ walks in on you filming, but really, it’s just so that he can make an appearance in your videos -  nobody is complaining, however.

·         Whenever you two are out, fans always come up to you and honestly the pictures you take with your fans are so cute!

·You two are honestly the cutest YouTube couple ever?

Jaehee

·         When she worked for Jumin, she never had time to watch YouTube. However, since opening the café with you she likes to watch a couple of videos a day – mainly Zen appreciation videos and the like.

·         You were planning on telling her about your YouTube career soon after the party, but you get a message from her congratulating you on your most recent video. You’re like: “Jaehee, how tf did you find out if I never told you?”

·         She had been checking out the Zen fanclub site where a fan had posted a video of a popular YouTuber covering one of the songs from Zen’s latest musical. She was really surprised to see it was you! And your vocals were better than Zen’s! (and that’s saying a lot lmao)

·         She loves your covers! She thinks your voice is beautiful and enjoys listening to your covers, especially when she’s stressed. She finds that it helps her unwind easier.

·         She’s a little unhappy you have an Echo Girl cover on your channel, given what happened between her and Zen, but you reassure her this was way before that drama began. (this is assuming the drama happens after Jaehee’s route)

·         She’s supportive of your career - who wouldn’t be? She develops you a schedule so you don’t lose sleep editing videos. She’s seen the bags under your eyes and it reminds her of when she used to work for Jumin, so she doesn’t want you to get too stressed out because she knows that feeling all too well.

·         Baehee’s thinking of playing your covers in the cafe, or asking for singing lessons from you… but she won’t pressure you into it!

·         She’s amazed you have so many fans, but sometimes she finds the comment section a little weird – you have to explain that some of the comments are just running jokes on your channel. Similarly, she also finds your fanbase a little strange but you assure her it’s all in good faith!

·         She reports any hate comments and replies to them with dignity and grace.

·         She doesn’t really want to be in your videos as she’s camera shy, but through persistence you rope her into a Q&A – your fans ship you two so hard!

·         For her birthday, you decide to cover her favourite song – fans just think it’s another video (and your last before the end of the year) but for Jaehee, it’s special! It’s her favourite video of yours.

·         She loves to talk about you to customers when you aren’t working in the café – she once gushed about you to a customer for so long that the coffee she was making for them went cold.

·         If you get record deals from companies, she’ll make you think logically about it. Will you truly be happy? She threw herself at an opportunity and look what happened to her.

Jumin

·         So, at the RFA party, he’s really surprised that when he introduces you as his partner, the media goes crazy. Sure, he expected some sort of uproar, but it literally took so many bodyguards to make the reporters leave. Naturally, he must ask if you had anything to do with it. You explain that you’re a popular YouTuber who does makeup tutorials, but he has no idea what you’re talking about. “What’s a YouTuber?”. I mean, he can’t even work a vending machine, he didn’t know you could check who was in the RFA chatroom before signing in… but you’re patient and explain it to him, as well as showing him some of your most popular videos.

·         He’s amazed by the quality of your videos, and admires how you tell your fans that they don’t have to wear makeup to be beautiful. He’s also fascinated by the fact you have so many subscribers that eagerly await your next video. Tbh, he understands the hype, but guess who gets to view your vids first?

·         He’s really confused by those dumb challenges like applying makeup with a condom or a hardboiled egg. “Is this what commoners like to do for fun?” “No Jumin, we just want to have fun before we die”

·         He’s surprised by the fact that so many makeup companies send you their products for free - is it a good business decision? Likewise, he wonders if the gold play button is actually made from real gold and the effects it would have on YouTube’s finances. He’ll frame it above the mantelpiece!

·         He might be chill with your fame and your subscribers, but he’s NOT okay with the business deal you have with your company. You bet he’s putting an end to the deal with the greedy corporation who takes 60% of your revenue!

·You are kind of surprised when he asks if his company can sponsor one of your videos. To him, it’s the perfect business opportunity, but you weren’t expecting him to take such an interest in what you do. Of course, you accept his offer. It might be a conflict of interests, but if it’s to boost his company you won’t refuse

·         He’ll buy you the best camera equipment, editing software, expensive af makeup products… If there was anything you needed, he would buy it for you in a heartbeat. There’s no use in arguing with him, anyway.

·         CAN YOU IMAGINE TRYING TO DO THE BOYFRIEND DOES MY MAKEUP CHALLENGE WITH HIM? “____, I can just ask a makeup artist to do your makeup if you’re too tired too” JUMIN THAT ISN’T THE POINT OF THE CHALLENGE. But he does a mostly good job… He does remind you after every product he applies that you’re more beautiful without it on. Also, if you ever do a boyfriend voices my makeup tutorial video, he’s probably going to digress and start talking about how beautiful Elizabeth is.

·Likewise, if he must appear in one of your videos, Elizabeth must as well. He wants the whole world to see and appreciate her beauty.

·         He reads your comments and appreciates the nice ones. He agrees with them! If he sees a mean comment, all he has to do is type hello and the commenter will delete their comment. Nobody messes with Jumin Han. (That is, if he knows how to reply to one…)

·         Speaking of which, if you get another “does jumin han is gay?” comment you might lose your mind. Jumin finds it annoying too, but reminds you that it’s only a small percentage of your audience who actually ask that.

·         He doesn’t need to be jealous of all the men who watch you – once the media gets hold of your relationship they back the fuck off. Of course, if any still think they have the guts to try and flirt with you he can just make his mark on you 😉

·         Likewise, when anyone calls you beautiful, he doesn’t get offended either – he knows, honey.

·         He buys another penthouse in the complex so you can film videos there. You really only needed one room but now you have a dedicated house for your videos!

Seven

·         He knows you’re a taste test YouTuber from the background check he did. Even so, he probably knew who you were anyway, but because of all the agency work he had, he never had the time to watch your videos.

·         Even though you were a little famous before the RFA, suddenly you’re an internet sensation after the first party. Can you guess why? 😉

·         Honestly, he’s quite amazed that you seem so open online, yet there’s a lot of things your fans don’t know about you that only he knows. He really admires that about you.

·         He’s also amazed at how much you make – he’ll tease you and ask you to buy him another baby but really, he’s kind of shocked. He was roped into joining an agency, thinking he could save himself and his brother through unethical means, but he could have started a YouTube channel to make money? You have to remind him that YouTube wouldn’t have been as profitable as it is today at that time, however.

·         Surprisingly, your fans weren’t worried about your absence. He didn’t tell you this, but when he stayed with you at Rika’s apartment, he was secretly editing all the videos you hadn’t finished editing and posting them. How did he access your videos? This boy is a hacker, don’t question it.

·         Sometimes he’ll tease you about your popularity too, but truthfully, he’s proud of your success. He becomes your #1 fan and the leader of your fanclub. He’s really overwhelmed by your popularity; does he really deserve someone like you? Yes, he does.

·         At first, he doesn’t want to be in any of your videos, which is understandable because he’s still dealing with stuff from the agency. Once that’s over, he’s more than willing to be included! Free food? Aw heck yes!

·         Sometimes he gives you really awesome suggestions and sometimes he gives you some horrible suggestions – he tricked you into trying a Century Egg! “What the fuck is this, Saeyoung!?” “MC, this is a kid’s channel!”

·         He wishes for the day he can be in one of your videos with Saeran, but it likely won’t happen because Saeran will probably never fully recover from his trauma. He can dream, however.

·         HE COMMENTS FIRST ON ALL YOUR VIDEOS FFS.

·         He also becomes your editor - like Yoosung, he’s very happy to be the first one to watch your videos. Sometimes he might edit some dumb shit into them, but the editing job is top quality.

·         He’ll also make memes out of your videos, too, and spread them online. One of them is a new viral trend and you have no idea to react to its popularity.

·         He really wants you to taste test HBC but honestly, what’s the point if you’ve done it 20 times already?

·         Hate comments? What hate comments? Every time he sees a hate comment, he’ll hack into that person’s account and change the comment into something nice, and then maybe mess with them by only letting them watch cat videos for a few hours.

·         He’ll create a bot which leaves nice comments on your videos and spreads them online – each video has a totally unique comment!

·He’s also gained a following because of his quirkiness and humour - he might set up his own channel, but it’s dedicated to really dumb 10 second videos and vlogs of the two of you.

Saeran

·         He likely doesn’t know very much about YouTube since he probably wasn’t allowed to watch it at Mint Eye, and if he was it was only YouTubers the Saviour approved of. You did not make the list of who he could watch.

·         You tell him about your career when he’s well into his recovery, and even if he doesn’t seem too interested he checks out your channel when you’re not around. He finds himself binge watching your channel – he actually enjoys your baking tutorials.

·         He can’t quite believe you have so many subscribers? Why does a mega celebrity like you want to hang out and date a nobody and pathetic person like him?

·         He doesn’t tell you at first that he has been going through all your videos, and you don’t give it much mind since you don’t think he cares about your channel, but you’re very surprised when he gives you a cake he made following one of your videos. Somehow, it’s better than the one you made in the video.

·         He will act like he doesn’t understand why you bake so much, but he loves eating the treats you bake. However, he’s very overwhelmed by all your ingredients and equipment; he’s likely never even seen half the stuff you have.

·         Your channel is actually very beneficial to him since he’s able to try new dishes that he would’ve never have had at Mint Eye or as a child. I headcanon him as a fussy eater, so having him watch your videos and deciding what he’s willing to try is great for you and Seven since he often doesn’t eat what you two like.

·         He is obsessed with your homemade ice cream! You’ve had to think up fifty different recipes for it so he can taste test it over and over lmao.

·         You do try and get him on a video but he really doesn’t want to, since he’s camera shy, so he tries things off camera and gives his own ratings on your dishes. However, people are able to recognise that he’s your boyfriend since they can hear his voice.

·         He gets into huge arguments with ANYONE who criticises you and threatens to dox them if they continue being mean. You’re way too nice to deserve hate from assholes who think they can say whatever they want just because they’re ‘protected and hidden’ behind a screen (spoiler alert: they aren’t). If he isn’t allowed to dox the haters then he would create a glitch in the hater’s account where every time they say something mean they get a jumpscare on their screen.

·         Much like Seven, he would edit your videos – he might suggest it out of the blue after seeing you work late, but he’ll get awkward and flustered about it. if you ask him about it, he’ll refuse at first before accepting the offer. He’ll edit your videos perfectly; they’re beautifully done, but he doesn’t think they’re that great. He always tells you to just get Seven to edit them because he’s “better” at it, though you tell him that he is amazing at it.

·         Whenever he’s feeling stressed or recovering from a PTSD attack, he finds your videos calming. He really likes the satisfying ones where you have sped up shots of cakes baking or pouring a mixture into a pan. He also finds your voice soothing too, since you aren’t too loud and wacky in your videos.

·         He also admires how when you receive personal messages or fanmail, you write back to every single one and treat every gift preciously, even if it isn’t that good. He sent you some fanmail under a different name just so he could tell you how your videos were helping him through recovery. You started crying because it reminded you of Saeran, and when he revealed he was the one who wrote it, you cried even more because you were so happy that they helped him through tough times.

·         Your fanbase adores him - he sometimes even gets his own fanmail! It helps him feel better about himself and rarely, you see the hints of a smile tug at his cheeks. One day, you hope to see a full smile, and if you can dream, catch it on camera.

V

·         You decide to be upfront about it. You’ve agreed to make your relationship as open as possible, and besides, he’s curious about your job. He’d need to be aware since when you film, there must be absolute silence – you run an ASMR channel, after all. Of course, he isn’t a loud person to begin with, but he wonders why you’re gone for multiple hours at a time and only making minimal noise, he’ll know why.

·         At first, he was unsure of ASMR, but after watching one of your videos when he needed to relax, he completely understood the hype. He finds it very relaxing, and particularly enjoys the 3D sound of your videos.

·         He subscribes to your channel and tells his photography friends about it – even Rui is a fan!

·         The type of channel you run is perfect for him since he’s blind – he doesn’t need to watch the videos to know what’s happening, he just has to listen – and since he has sensitive hearing upon going blind, the experience is enhanced for him. Your videos also help him sleep at night, especially when he feels sentimental about Rika.

·         His favourite videos are the ones where you play with people’s hair, because he really likes having his hair played with too, so hearing the sound of fingertips brushing against the skull and the light tug on hair is soothing to him since he likes to imagine you do that to his hair.

·         He might be blind, but he still has his photography skills and does a photoshoot for you. You end up using the photos to update your social media and Youtube profile pictures.

·         He lets you use his camera equipment and recommends good editing software to you! He’ll even teach you how to use it, though you’ll need to be patient with him since he can’t see.

·         You decide to do a Q&A with him and your fans love how sweet and caring he is! They also love his voice and soon after you’ve got him to do an ASMR video as well.

·         Your fanbase adores your relationship.

·         He is very supportive – a lot of people might find ASMR weird but he doesn’t. He’s there for you every step of the way, even when you hit 15 million subscribers.  If anyone leaves a hate comment, he’ll respond to them calmly.

·         Your popularity doesn’t really bother him, because so long as your happy, he is too. Everything else is a bonus.

Vanderwood

·         They see you spin a fidget spinner in front of the camera

·         They back the fuck out

·         Wtf is your career and why do you have 10 million subscribers?

My requests are open! 

here is a niall horan x reader fluffy piece i wrote to feel nice inside (this is obviously not someone i regularly write about so if you would like content like this off your dash, just blacklist ‘not tom holland’)

in which y/n listens to nialls favorite band 

Niall groaned into his beer before leaning back into the big, velvety sectional he was sitting on. Though Y/N couldn’t hear him, she definitely knew what was going on. Someone wasn’t doing too well in the final and Niall was getting frustrated. Y/N thought about which player it could be for a few seconds. She gave up quickly though, only knowing a few her boyfriend had befriended. All their names sounded familiar when she spent the whole time appreciating the sexy inflection of his Irish accent whenever he ranted about golf to her. 

After sending a few reaction texts to some of his buddies, he glanced over to the corner of his living room. It had been a few months since he’d brought in the cream papasan chair for her to curl up and do her work in. And that’s exactly what she was doing.

Jackson x Reader

Anonymous said: I came up this scenario that im sure would turn out amazing if u wrote it cos ur writing is so bomb its like y/n is part of a girl group and they go to weekly idol with got7 and they do those random dance battles and a got7 song starts playing and she goes straight and center to take jacksons place cos she loves got7 (jacksons her bias) and everyone teases her and jackson like omg u so cute and everyone is low key trying to set u guys up

A/N: I hope you like this! I’m not really sure how it came out but I tried lol

You rubbed your arms nervously as Dony and Cony did their introductions. You were a part of a new seven-member rookie girl group that had debuted less than six months ago, and you were already filming for Weekly Idol.

Filming for this show was somewhat of a rite of passage for kpop groups, you thought. Almost all of the groups you loved while training had come to film on this show relatively quickly after their debut. Some groups had been on the show more than once, almost every comeback.

You were thinking, of course, of Got7. Ever since you saw them on Weekly Idol, you fell in love with them. Your bias was Jackson, and as a trainee you had learned all of their choreographies for their title songs. If you had time off from your training schedule, you always watched videos of them on variety shows, paying particular attention to Jackson.

You weren’t quite sure why you were attracted to Jackson at first. You suspected it had something to do with how extroverted he was. Jackson Wang was one of the happiest, most extroverted idols you knew of. There was something about how easily he made friends that just made you fall for him.

Dony and Cony finished their introductions and motioned for you to come on set. Your girl group made your entrance and did your introductions. After a bit of relaxing banter, Dony and Cony looked at their cue cards. You were aware of staffs shuffling behind cameras, but you tried to pay no attention to that and focus on Dony and Cony, who seemed to be doing more introductions.

“Now, you already know them, they’ve been on this show multiple times,” Dony started.

“They’re like veterans,” Cony added.

“The seven-member boy group, Got7!” they cheered together.

Then Got7 were walking on set and you were dying a bit inside. As you were placed at the end of your group, Got7 lined up directly beside you. You were aware of Jackson next to you, and you thought you were going to die. You couldn’t believe this was happening. Why were they here?

“Now, you may be wondering why we have two groups today,” Dony said. “This is because we have prepared a special version of Random Dance Play! This time, it will be reversed. If a Got7 song plays, Y/G/N will dance. If Y/G/N’s song plays, Got7 has to dance. If you can each dance three songs, you will be rewarded with meat!”

You both cheered. You exchanged knowing looks with your leader. She was also a hardcore Got7 fan and as a result you and her had led multiple dance practices where you had gotten the other members to do Got7’s choreographies.

You were going to kill this.

The music started, and you recognized the beginning of Just Right. You quickly ran to your spots with the rest of the girls, and started dancing.

You basically knew this routine and song in your sleep. Jackson’s rap started, and you came up to the front and lip-synced the whole thing perfectly. You could hear Jackson and the rest of Got7 cheering in awe from the side and suddenly the song switched to your most recent title song. You cleared the floor and Got7 ran to take your place. You felt your heart skip a beat when you noticed Jackson was following your part of the choreo.

He knew your song. He knew your part. He knew everything.

The next four songs passed quickly, with both you and Got7 nailing each other’s choreographies. As your last song finished, you earned a round of applause from both Dony and Cony, as well as the other staffs in the room.

“Wow,” Cony said. “I don’t think we were expecting you to get it on the first try!”

“We did!” Jackson spoke up.

“Now we get meat!” Youngjae cheered.

“One thing I noticed,” Dony said. “Is that from song to song, most of the members chose different parts of the choreographies to follow, but Jackson and Y/N always danced each other’s parts, without fail. Did you two plan that?”

You and Jackson both shook your heads. “No, that wasn’t planned,” you said. “I just know only Jackson’s parts to their songs.”

“Me too,” Jackson said quickly. “I only know Y/N’s parts.”

You could have sworn you saw Dony and Cony exchange looks, but the moment passed too quickly for you to really pay attention to it. They called someone over to grill the meat for you, and the interview continued with both your group and Got7.

After the meat was grilled, it was passed out to both you and Got7. Jackson was about to put a piece in his mouth, but Dony and Cony called to him, “Jackson-ah!”

Jackson looked up in surprise. “Yes?”

“Why don’t you feed some of your meal to Y/N?” Dony suggested, a glint in his eyes.

“To Y/N?” Jackson was surprised.

“Yes, because as of now,” Dony came over and tied your wrists together with some rope he had seemingly pulled out of thin air, “Y/N is not able to use her hands!”

“What?” you were, understandably, very confused. “Why me?”

“Because you’re the youngest of your group,” Cony justified. “You too, Yugyeom.”

“What? No!” Yugyeom tried to run away, but Dony was too fast, wrapping the rope around his wrists before he could move. Got7 laughed as he was tied up.

“Okay Jackson, feed Y/N,” Dony said happily.

Jackson sighed and picked up his chopsticks, grabbing a piece of meat and holding it to your mouth. “Okay Y/N, say ah.”
“Ah…” Jackson placed the food in your mouth. You chewed slowly, savouring the food. Jackson picked up another piece of food and placed it in your mouth, but not before accidentally bumping the food to your chin. You chewed, but you could tell there was some sauce from the meat stuck on your chin.

“Oh, I’m sorry! Hold still…” Jackson grabbed a napkin and carefully swiped your chin, holding your face with his free hand. “There. Got it.”

You felt your face flush as he smiled endearingly at you. “T-thank you.”

“Hey, why so formal? I’m your oppa, am I not? You can call me oppa if you want to.”

“O-okay,” you smiled at him.

You didn’t hear Dony whisper to Cony, “They don’t call us weekly matchmakers for nothing.”


After filming was over, you were packing up your stuff when you heard someone clear their throat behind you. Turning, you saw Jackson standing there. “Oh, hi Jackson.”

“Hey, um… I was wondering…. maybe, like if you’re down for it, you’d like, want to get meat with me sometime? Where we can both eat, and maybe even if your hands are free I’d be able to feed you anyway?”

“Oh! Um…” you realized very quickly that holy shit, Jackson Wang was asking you on a date. To go eat meat. The Jackson Wang. There was no way you’d turn him down. “Yeah, of course! I’d love to eat with you, Jackson.”

At that moment, you could have compared Jackson to the sun. His smile lit up the room, making everything seem brighter. “Great! Here, take my number. I have to go now, since I kind of escaped my manager to see you, but text me! We’ll figure something out soon!”

He handed you a piece of paper and vanished down the hall, leaving you both dumbfounded and excited.

You were going to go on a date with Jackson Wang.
