This is me, showing you how sometimes, artists can let themselves be influenced by a peer too heavily. And that simple inspiration can become near-plagiarism.
I’m not putting credit, even if none of these examples are from the same person. I’ve made that decision so no one gets shit over this– though I’m sorry because they are all great pieces, and I know a lot of time and work were put into all of them. I’m not here to bash, or to try and lessen anyone’s worth and talent. Plus– this could have happened with anyone. These are simply the examples I have collected over the past few months.
Last disclaimer: All of the artists above have not repeated this very often, if at all, of what I’ve seen. In fact, it’s not always copying. Just being inspired very heavily (as seen above). And I can see how good they are: Their potential, and, above all, their obvious talent. All in all, I simply want to point out one last time that this is not against them at all. They have simply provided me with the examples I need to make a point.
And who would I be showing other pieces without calling myself out: I’ve done it too, and I include myself in everything I’m saying. It is because I’ve done it, actually, that I take it to heart so much.
Which is fucking embarassing to admit so bear with me.
In fact, even if you do recognize any other of these pieces, don’t give anyone trouble. Please just– don’t ever send good-willed artists hate. Chances are, they were having a nice day before you showed up.
So… it’s well-known there are many ways for artists to learn. To become better: And one of these methods is to copy others.
But usually, these studies remain
in your personal folders. They are not to post and claim as your own. Or if you do post them: you’d share it for what it is, I’m assuming.
And this is where this trend gets a little dismaying. In neither of the original posts was there a mention that Elentori was the inspiration. Even though it is obvious to any onlooker. Not even hidden in the tags. And I’ve checked all of these blogs’ archives just to make sure that I was not mistaking the copying and the copied.
I’m not diminishing Elentori’s work either: She’s a great reference, and I don’t know a soul who dislikes her work or doubts her talent. She’s actually made a brand for herslelf and that’s why her style lifts from the masses.
But that’s exactly it: she has found her own style, and it’s working out great for her. And that’s what I wish upon every other artist out there.
There is no reason to purposely put yourself in someone’s shadow, just because you admire them so much.
So like Noah Bradley says in his art camp:
Study art from masters. The older, the better. And if they’re dead, that’s the best. There’s nothing else they could’ve taught you.
(This isn’t an actual quote, it’s just very much the message he gives from what I remember.)
I would change that a little: Copy masters (Master painters, Disney illustrators… and there are more) as well, and especially. Don’t just copy trends or trendsetters, guys. Find your own signature. Something that others will want to copy as well. Something that’ll be uniquely yours. Try different things. Dwelve in cartoons even when you’re into realistic things. Just to better yourself.
And here’s a thought:
Can we make it socially acceptable to be comfortable, as artists, to cite our inspiration? To say;; hey, I tried this artist’s style today. Here’s how it turned out!! Because there must be a reason why we don’t do it. And maybe it’s some untold social construct?
I don’t know. I just think we should move past it.
specifically chose an apartment with enough space for a piano,,,,,,,which means his living room is just his piano and like a rug there isn’t any room for anything else,,,,,,
but that’s fine with him because he has his computer set up in the bedroom so he can play games and that’s all he really needs in his life youngjae is a simple man with simple hobbies
he also won’t admit it but he spent more money on coco’s bed than he did on his own (definitely waited for ikea’s end of year sale or something for that)
keeps everything pretty minimal in style, beige’s and whites. tries to keep his place tidy because he knows it would make his mother proud and he wants to leave as much open space for coco to play around
more dog toys in his apartment than there is furniture
the neighbors all know him as ‘debussy boy’ because in the spring/summer when youngjae has his windows open the neighbors can hear him practicing clair de lune and it’s such a relaxing melody that someone will shout “encore!” just to hear youngjae play it again
he’s also just a really sweet, mannered guy so most of the neighbors don’t mind his music and some of the moms keep asking him to offer piano lessons so they can bring their kids over to be taught by him
and that’s exactly what he does because hey, rent is getting higher and making some extra money on the side is never a bad thing
but most of the time he can’t even bring himself to take the neighbors money,,,,,,,,,he ends up teaching on donations that the parents have to literally push onto him
and you’ve never been really interested in learning to play the piano,,,,,but you’ve lived across from youngjae for half a year now and every time you hear him play it’s like ,,,,,, it’s like stepping into a fairytale
not to mention that when you see him, with that eye smile of his and that adorable innocent aura,,,,,,,like ok ok you might maybe have developed a little crush or whatever,,,,,,,,
so one day you as you’re taking the elevator up with him, talking about the weather, you suddenly go “i heard you teach piano lessons - can i possibly sign up for one?”
and youngjae seems a little surprised, mostly because his students are all children
but even with his cheeks getting more red he tells you that sure, he’s free this sunday
and before you ring his doorbell on sunday afternoon you check your hair and straighten your shirt like one hundred million times but when you finally do, youngjae opens the door and apologizes in a stutter for the mess (there isn’t any mess tho lmao)
and you follow him to the pretty piano in the middle of his living room and you’re like “where’s your tv? o:” and youngjae is like “no ,,,, room,,,,,,,,,,, i watch whatever i can on my laptop!” and you’re like “you must really love playing the piano, it’s like this apartment is dedicated just to this instrument”
and you don’t even mean to make him embarrassed, but youngjae has to hide his face for a bit because he’s blushing and once you both sit down on the bench you confess you don’t have the first clue about what you’re doing
and youngjae finally seems less shy, smiling and putting his fingers on the keys and teaching you slowly what sound each one makes
and the time passes so fast as you two sit side by side and youngjae’s voice is so gentle and his laugh makes your heart beat a little faster
and then you try to play something on your own, but you’re clumsy and suddenly youngjae puts his hand over yours, guiding your fingers along the keys
and only when you’re done does he realizes that you’re basically holding hands and he’s like “aH IM,,,,,,,,SORr,,,,,,y,,,,,,,,”
and he moves his hand away but you’re like looking down trying not to hide the fact that you’re really happy ,,,,,,,, plus his skin had been so warm
two shy cute people that obviously think “they’re so cute” about each other but can’t even look into each others eyes
and you thank youngjae for the lesson when coco starts weaving between your feet, nudging youngjae and asking him to take her on her walk
and youngjae is like “it’s no problem,,,,,if you want,,,,,,,,,you can come again,,,,,,,next week,,,,,,,,,”
and you’re like “i’d love to!” and then you look around in your pockets for the money you had brought but youngjae stops you and he’s like “i won’t,,,,,,,,,,,think of these as lessons more like,,,,,,,d,,,,,,,,da,,,,,,,”
and you’re like omg does he want to say dates?????
and youngjae can’t bring himself to do is he’s like “like d,,,,,,da,,,dat,,,,” and you giggle and say it for him and he’s like yES,,,,if that’s ok,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
and you’re like that’s more than ok and you’re like if you won’t take cash payment then can i kiss you on the cheek instead??
and youngjae would melt into a puddle if that was humanly possible but he nods and when you press your lips to his cheek you pull back fast and youngjae wants to say something
but coco’s barking cuts you two off,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
it’s cute though you both lie in the bed that night thinking about how you could go from being neighbors to being much more,,,,,,
gets in trouble with the landlord because he throws parties every weekend
but he always gets away with it because the neighbors are like “he’s a young boy, let him live!!!!” and also bambam has killer puppy dog eyes. they’d work on just about anyone,,,,,,,,,,,,,,minus like jinyoung
his apartment is a Mess. like im talking a real m e s s. his bedroom is just an assortment of clothing thrown into piles with shoes and accessories everywhere,,,,,,,half the time he ends up sleeping using an t-shirt as a pillow
the only thing he keeps clean is a Buddhist shrine he keeps in his room as per request of his mom and if anyone even tries to go near it he’s like “i WILL chop your hand off” ,,,,,it’s really important to him
but yeah his living room is just,,,,like no one is sure what’s going on,,,he’s got like weird art on the walls and a neon sign he bought on impulse and like ,,,,, empty bottles from drinks and take-out cartons and underwear hanging off a lamp ???? glitter on the floor who even knows
his kitchen is even worse like when does he even do the dishes. does he even own dishes? nope bring your own dishes if you plan to not eat off like a frisbee when you come over
you know bambam at first because you hear about his parties, literally like you hear the party through your wall
and ten minutes later there’s a ring at your doorbell and some dude named jackson is inviting you over since there’s free drinks and food
and you’re like you know what ill go and that night you get introduced to bambam, who is apparently trying to attempt some kind of high speed dab balancing a bottle of water on his head and you’re like “why he’s doing that”
that jackson kid is like “oh, he’s doing it for instagram”
and as you continue being neighbors with bambam you find out he does a L OT for instagram
which is fine like,,,,,,,,,,,kids and their social media these days but before you know it you end up being asked by bambam himself for some help
and so you’re standing in his living room, holding up his phone and you’re like “are you sure this is a good idea?”
and bambam, who is attempting to do a handstand is like “anything for the internet is a good idea”
and you’re sighing like ok but if you come tumbling down im not going to catch you
and you start recording as he tries to lift both arms up at the same time to dab “upside down” which of course is a total failure like you predicted
and he goes falling legs, something sounds like it cracks and you’re like
“…………..bambam don’t move i think you might have broken your arm” and bambam whose just laying there motionless is like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, “i can’t move,,,,,,,,,,,it hurts,,,,,,,,”
and you don’t want to be an asshole and just leave him all alone once the ambulance comes so you tag along and the EMT is like “so what exactly happened?” and you’re like “he ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, fell while working out.”
and you’re not sure if he believes the lie you’ve just told but the EMT shrugs and is like “it looks like nothing is broken, your boyfriend just has a fracture.”
and you want to be like boyfriend??????? since when excUSE me
but bambam makes a sound of pain and you’re like “ok ok don’t worry, you’re not dying”
and somehow you find yourself staying by his side in the emergency room and after the doctor has patched him all up you go out and get the two of you some coffees from the vending machine
and bambam is sitting up in the bed and you’re like “let me the first person to sign your bandage” and you scribble something like “don’t ever dab upside down again” and bambam laughs
but also,,,,,, he looks up at you and there’s something sincere in his eyes when he tells you that he’s really thankful for you staying with him and that you’re really a good neighbor
and you’re not sure what’s gotten into you, but bambam looks so handsome,,,,, maybe because you’ve never been so close to his face before but his features are so gorgeous
that you have to look away and conjure up a laugh to hide your embarrassment from locking eyes with him
but knowing bambam he’s sly and he’s caught on
and you feel his free hand wrap around your waist and pull you closer and you’re like “oh!??” and he’s like
“you took care of me, so how about i pay for our dinner tonight?” and you’re like “bambam can you even get your wallet out with one hand?” and he’s like “i can try, for you.”
and you have the urge to like pinch him for being greasy all of a sudden but also like maybe this goofy guy who actually loves your attention a lot,,,,,,,,,,,,,is really cute and worth it to go to dinner with,,,,,,,,,
if the neighbors cat gets stuck in the tree, everyone knows to call him: the living giant of the apartment building, Kim Yugyeom
the neighborhood kids adore him because they always beg him for piggy back rides or to sit on his shoulders
and he always stops whatever he’s doing to play with them and just be an overall cute angelic human being that we as people do not deserve
has that kind of personality that makes people give him stuff for free and when he thanks them they’re just like “oh wait there’s something else i need to give you wait here a second-”
anyone who meets him instantly wants to take care of him,,,,he’s soft
his apartment is really well organized which is surprising for his age,,,,, like his closet is color coded and he matches all the patterns with each other
and he cutely hangs his laundry out on the balcony like his mom taught him
and just like,,,,,,,he’s so sugary sweet and simple
buys fresh flowers for his living room whenever he can. that’s the kind of person he is
and you’ve been pretty good friends with him for a while. he even helped you paint your apartment where you had to get on a stool to reach the ceiling and he just,,,,,,,,well stood there
and you know yugyeom has a passion for dancing, he’s always telling you about what song he’s practicing and who he met up with from different dance crews
but one night as you’re going up to the roof to just sit and think,,,,something you do every now and then
you’re surprised to hear the faint sound of music beyond the door and when you open it
you can hear a song on full blast, and the sound of someones sneakers against the floor and you’re surprised to see the tall, lean, but familiar figure of yugyeom
and although you usually see him wearing some kind of long coat, turtlenecks and shirts from popular brands
you see that all he has on is a pair of old sweatpants and a plain black t-shirt, sweat visible around the neck.
his movements though,,,,,,they’re far more smooth than you could have ever imagined. you can tell he practices a lot, he’s so good that you can barely see any mistakes
and yugyeom doesn’t notice you until the song ends and you (embarrassingly) unconsciously clap
and it startles him to the point that he lets out a small yelp, but with the faint light from the streets below he makes out your face and smiles
and he’s like “why are you up here?” and you’re like “no reason, i didn’t know you used the roof to practice?”
and you can see him get sheepish, scratching the back of his neck and he’s like “my room doesn’t have enough space, plus i don’t want to be loud with my music. it’s so nice and free up here.”
and you nod looking at him with a still mesmerized expression and yugyeom laughs a bit and he’s like “don’t gape like that, im nothing special” and you’re like no what?? you’re so amazing???/ i never knew you were THIS talented
and he laughs again, but he’s really happy to hear you say that and you go over and pass him a napkin from your pocket and you’re like “your sweat!!” and he gets blushy again but thankfully you can’t see it
but you’re also like “ill go, i don’t want to disturb you”
but yugyeom grabs your wrist before you turn and he’s like “if you want,,,,,,,,you can watch me some more,,,,,,,i don’t know if it’ll be entertaining though-”
but you’re already saying you’ll stay, sitting down comfortably by the portable speakers and yugyeom is like “pick a song!”
and you shuffle through his music, settling on a chris brown song that makes yugyeoms eyes light up
and it’s really adorable,,,,,,the way he’s so passionate while dancing and then so cute when he’s just talking to you,,,,,,
very how should i put this,,,,,,,BOYFRIEND material
Hello my lovely unicorns. Today’s post isn’t going to be a learning curve for people already familiar with the lifestyle rather people who say it’s like pedophilia. Now, this may change peoples minds it may not but i do want to make this post. I want to clarify this is for abdl as well i will be making a separate one for petplay since it’s different. Ok? Ok let’s get started.
**DISCLAIMER I USE THE TERM DDLG BECAUSE IM A LITTLE GIRL. NOT BECAUSE IM TRYING TO HURT ANYONES FEELINGS. YOU LITTLE BOYS, MOMMY DOMS AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN ARE SO IMPORTANT! UNFORTUNATELY I CAN’T NAME EVERYONE ALL THE TIME AND IF I SAID CGL ALL THE TIME ID FORGET AND PUT DDLG THEN THIS WOULD BE HARDER TO WRITE***
First thing first i want to start by saying ddlg and abdl is for consenting adults unlike pedophilia which has a child and a full grown adult. Its part of the bdsm community which stands for: Bondage and Discipline (BD), Dominance and Submission (DS), Sadism and Masochism (SM). Now ddlg and abdl does have some child factors however it is not pedophilia. I will admit some people are into because it can be taken as an ‘alternative’ route to pedophilia but in reality that’s not what it is about. Ddlg stands for: daddy dom little girl. There are other abbreviations like: mdlg which in mommydom little girl, and so on the list is endless, but for the sake of time i’m going to just say ddlg. Abdl stands for: adult baby diaper lover. While those things might sound pedophile-ish they’re not. Ddlg is mostly the little liking to feel taken care of and protected by their dominant. These dominants can be called anything we want although we prefer the word daddy, because it’s much easier to say while in little space and a lot cuter. However we are not talking about our fathers even though it may seem like it. We are referring to daddy as being the best dominant for us. We are not referring to them as our actual fathers even though they may provide and care for us as such. If we so chose to we could call them sir, master, dommy anything we want to. We so choose to call them daddy because its more generic and goes with the little girl (or whatever gender) 'aesthetic’ of it all. It’s the same thing with adbl however they can be more into piss play and diapers. Acting like a infant opposed to a little who usually acts as young as 2 (not all the time but mostly). They prefer baby things and bottles opposed to a little who will drink out of sippy cups and like more big girl things like barbies. This is not to say littles don’t use bottles or can’t but bottles are mostly used in this branch of the community.
(I want to point out as well not all little ages are as young as 5 some are 13 or higher.)
Now remember those pedofiles i mentioned earlier? Using ddlg as an alternate route? Those people don’t represent us as a community. We don’t sexualize children in anyway shape or form. I have not once heard of a situation where a dom has said “oh yeah your little nows the time to f***” little space is about letting go of problems and return to a state of mind when life was easier. It’s not about sex even though they can have sex because they’re both consenting it’s not what it’s ABOUT. It’s about loving one another, caring for each other, and having fun.
Another way pedophilia is different from ddlg and abdl is that pedofiles tend to be attracted to well, children. They say they like their innocents and smooth bodies. This lifestyle is nothing like that. Its two ADULTS CONSENTING TO ADULT THINGS while one acts younger than they really are. Now i know you might be saying “well there’s underaged littles” and yes there are. I’m not denying that. It doesn’t make my point any less valid. They sometimes don’t have sex with their doms just doing it because they love being little and their doms love to take care of them (Side note: i know most underaged littls are sexually active, but they concent to it. Unlike a 5 year old child and a pedophile).
My point is Adbl and ddlg (and branches cgl etc.) Are not pedophilia.
1. They don’t sexualize baby or kid products. They yes are used but rarely during sexual activities or used in any sexual way whatsoever.
2. They are both ADULTS
3. Pedophiles tend to be attracted to actual children. We in this community don’t condone that one bit. A Lot of us are morally against it.
I hope this helped. Maybe yes maybe no,but no matter what we aren’t hurting children in anyway. If you have a problem with the community there’s a simple thing you can do to solve all your problems with it……simply ignore it. We aren’t coming to you telling you that you calling your S/O a name is bad or that you doing something private with your S/O is wrong. So kindly shut up and sit down because your self righteous “THIS IS WRONG. SEXUALIZING CHILDREN!” is simply unnecessary and really stupid because in short. We aren’t. Thank you for reading

Heyo I just absolutely love your blog! Would you mind doing a classical musician au (orchestra or solo, doesn't matter) for Yoongi, Seokjin, and Taehyung? Like they play classical music and instruments like violin or piano? Thank you so much! 💖💖
ummmm listen to me anon i love orchestras,,,,i love listening to harp concertos,,,,how did you know,,,,,,
he’s the conductor
and he takes it very seriously. like he does not play around
with him it’s all about perfection and it’s not because of some sort of complex he has,,,,,it’s because people like to look down on younger conductors like him,,,,people who might not have years and years of knowledge so he pushes himself and his musicians to play their best even if it means hours of tireless practice
fluent in italian + french because he needs to know how to read choral writing
plays piano,,,,but rarely shows it to people outside of his close musical friends and mentors.
known as ‘stone yoongi’ since he doesn’t change his expression ever,,,,,,not even when the tempo rises or something goes wrong. he’ll correct people with the same tone of voice as he praises people
some of the musicians don’t like his very practical, hard-work over everything approach but everyone in the orchestra puts their trust in his leadership because they know he’ll never let them down
and you’re one of those people, you play viola and you’re seated right in front of yoongi and no matter what piece of music you’re playing or how well or how bad the practice is going you can’t help but admire his complete grace and unwavering expression
,,,,,,,but also you’ve made it your own personal mission to make him smile. at least once
because you remember seeing him smile,,,,,,during the new years dinner where one of his mentors had complimented him on his improved skills and how,,,,,,,,you’d seen this beautiful gorgeous smile you knew you’d never be able to forget
and so from making faces, to making musical puns, to even using two bows to give yourself antennas,,,,,,,,,you’ve tried to get a laugh. a chuckle. a hint of that smile
but it hasn’t worked
not until you end up late to practice, running past everyone’s stares, hair a mess and yoongi goes “why are you late”
and you, out-of-breath, admit that your case had gotten stuck between the closing doors on the train and you had to literally put your foot against the door and tug it out, falling over onto your back in the process
but you grin and pull out your viola and you’re like “thankfully, she’s fine!” (referring to the instrument)
and this,,,,,,,,this pulls the corners of yoongi’s lips into a small smile
but enough of a smile that it shows his gums and his eyes scrunch up
and you’re like holy,,,,,,,,i did it,,,,,,,,,,he smiled,,,,,
and after the practice you go up to yoongi and you’re like “im sorry for interrupting the practice-” but yoongi just shakes his head and then suddenly he’s ????? smiling again
and you’re like someone pinch me he’s so freaking cute
and he’s like “it’s fine, but really the way you were most worried about your viola really-” and he looks into your eyes and he’s like “really shows that you love it,,,you love music right?”
and you nod, because of course you’ve always loved it from the bottom of your heart
and the next thing you hear you can’t believe but ???? yoongi is like “me too,,,,,,,not a lot of people truly care for their instruments and their talent,,,,,,,also - aren’t you happy, you finally got me to smile.”
and you’re like Omg,,,,,did you figure out what i was up to?
and this time it isn’t a smile but a smirk more so and yoongi goes “it was obvious, but since i smiled - how about you do something for me?”
and you’re like well,,,,what?
and he’s like “do you want to go get coffee with me?” and you get a bit flustered and taken aback and you’re like,,,,,,,are you asking me to hangout??
and yoongi is like “hmm, no im asking you on a date.”
instrument: the harp
“if you bother me during practice again i will strangle you with all 47 of these strings. do nOT test me”
deserves more solos ,,,,,,, like yes jimin’s tchaikovsky violin solo was great but,,,,,,jin has this really good boieldieu piece,,,,,
people are always like “he’s so perfect for the harp,,,,it’s the most beautiful instrument in the orchestra and he’s just as beautiful tbh”
and yes he looks magical playing it, long fingers gliding across the strings and a very handsome composed face it’s honestly like watching a prince
so many other members have messed up by looking over at him and just being mesmerized and basically missing their notes
and you’re new to the orchestra, replacing one of their flute players who’d gotten sick and on the day of your first rehearsal
you get there super early and you see this tall boy with this HUGE case and he’s looking at the door to the practice room and you’re like !!!! he needs help
and you go over and you’re like “let me hold the door open for you!!!”
and you don’t even look at his face, you just get the handle open and look at the case and try to guess ,,,, like it’s not a cello it’s not the right shape,,,,,an octobass??? no,,,,,,,
and then you hear him laugh and he’s like “thank you!” and it’s a very unique laugh it’s kind of squeaky??
and you look at him and holy moly is he????? an???? angel????
how can someone look like that
and jin is just like “my harp is such a pain to move,,,,,it’s the worst part about this instrument.” and he like slowly begins to move it through the door and thankfully the case is on wheels, but it’s still gigantic
and you get bumped a bit by jin’s shoulder as he’s moving past you but you’re like more concentrated on making sure the harp gets inside unharmed
and once jin gets it through the door, he gets it into his position and he’s like opening the case and you’re like “let me help!!”
and jin is like “oh, thank you! by the way are you new?” and you introduce yourself and tell him you’re the new flute player and he’s like oh im jin,,,,,,as you can tell i play harp LOL
and you’re like “i love the harp!! it’s such an underrated instrument,,,”
and jin claps his hands and is like EXACTLY,,,,,you get me i feel like we’ll get along
and you guys start talking and it’s kind of funny because you’re on one side of the harp and he’s on the other and like you can see him through the strings
when finally you peek from the corner and you see jin’s face once again you’re like what ,,,,,,,, art,,,,,,,am i looking at tbh
and he’s like “oh here let me show you how to play a note on the harp!”
and you’re like !!!! ok
and he takes your hand and gently guides it over onto one of the strings and tells you to put your foot on one of the pedals
and you notice how long and elegant his fingers are and you’re like he really is perfect for this instrument
and his warm breath is against your ear as he’s telling you to play an ascending note
and it’s like a scene out of a movie,,,,,,,
until you hear someones voice and you look over to see a younger boy going “hyung!!!!!! are you two having a MOMENT?”
and jin is like “jungkook come here - what did you just say?”
and you’re blushing because,,,,,a moment,,,,,,and jin’s ears are red too but he’s too busy running to chase jungkook who has dashed out of the room saying he’s going to tell the rest of bts that jin is being a big flirt LOL
instrument: the bassoon
his instrument is the largest one in the woodwind family and therefore can play the lowest notes and everyone says it’s fitting because his voice is p low too
someone: “taehyung has anyone ever told you,,,,,you speak in like a B flat?”
taehyung: “honestly i don’t speak that DEEP im not batman please,,,,,though that would be really cool should i try speaking like batman from now o-”
the whole orchestra: “PLEASe god n o”
he really likes it when kids ask what kind of instrument he’s playing because it looks like a really big flute??? with lots of keys??? and shiny parts??? and he’s just like very very excited to tell kids about how cool the bassoon is and how it is very very important to the orchestra family
and tbh most people look at him and their first impression is that he can’t be serious,,,,,,like he can’t actually play classical music well with his torn up jeans and vibrant personality,,,,,they’re just like “shouldn’t be in a punk band or something?” but taehyung,,,,
when he plays,,,he’s 100% serious and committed and you can see the shift in his face. like he goes from all soft smiles, big eyes, sparkling laughter to concentrated, sharp focus
and you don’t know taehyung at all, to be honest you’re just an usher that works at this concert hall and during the practice you’re doing the usual check up to see that the seats are all clean and there isn’t any safety hazards
when you look up you see this grinning boy, with pretty brown eyes and a really cheerful chuckle walking up onto the stage and he’s holding the bassoon and you’re like huh he looks kinda playful,,,,,is this orchestra not famous yet?
but literally ten minutes into practice you look up again and spot him,,,,,the same smiling youthful looking boy playing with such a stark expression of seriousness that you almost trip over yourself as you’re going down the aisle of chairs
and taehyung notices the way you keep throwing glances over your shoulder
and even after practice as everyone is going back out and the theater is being opened for the night,,,taehyung passes by you and gives you a smile and you’re like ?????
but shrug it off as you start helping people to their seats and passing out programs
but then you hear people talking with other members of the orchestra and when you help over an elderly couple to their front row seats you see him,,,,,taehyung,,,,,,standing there too and you kind of blink a bit because shouldn’t he be mingling with the other musicians and people??
but taehyung tilts his head and gives you a wink and you’re like !!!!!!! blushing and looking around and then giving a small wave
which in turn makes taehyung break out into a grin, slight pinkness in his cheeks
and you don’t get to talk until after the performance but taehyung finds you as you’re pointing out the bathroom to some people and he’s like “hi ^^” and you’re like omg,,,,hi?? and he’s like “so which do you like more,,,,,,,musician me or plain me?” and you’re like huh and he’s like “smiley, cute me or sexy, serious me?”
and you get that he’s referring to how he is off and on stage and it makes you giggle and he just wiggles his eyebrows
and it’s cute,,,,,,his sense of humor matches yours and taehyung asks if your ushering shift is over soon and maybe you two can get dinner?
there's been a lot of negativity surrounding s*pergirl recently, i was wondering what your thoughts are on kara's current romantic arc, and also alex blowing off earth birthday/encouraging kara to be with mon-el? and anything else, if you want
i love that alex is a lesbian ok & that they covered the coming out so well. i haven’t seen any of the episodes since it returned so keep that in mind when i saw season two is completely lacking in the overarching drive & important themes that they introduced in season one. it is choppy & exhausting to watch & i don’t get any sense of direction from watching it. do i love it? yes. i LOVE supergirl i think it’s fun & exciting & i love all the positive messages so when im watching it I’m like yeah!!!!!! this is great!!!!!! but when im thinking abt it afterwards im disappointed
i dont understand at all what Kara or alex would see in mon el & im not saying that as someone who is queer im saying this as a writer there is nothing absolutely nothing that speaks to a connection between mon el & Kara. being the last of their people, coming from the same sun etc, isn’t even enough. if anything it’s more of a division not because draxamites & kryptonians had prejudice against one another bc that was a fun point that made Kara look at her own prejudices so I liked that. but like beyond that there is nothing that makes them,,, alike?? he is selfish & a bit of a hedonist & Not Rly interested in being a hero he doesn’t want to be hurt & all of that is fine !!!! when coming from a writing pov bc u want ur characters to have flaws & u want there to be smth to be developed. what I don’t understand is why Kara has to develop it & why it is LITERALLY abt his development & Not HER actions & HER decisions re: his development. he’s abt ten thousand times less interesting than kara but im not seeing enough abt her & not only is it disappointing but it’s actually kind of ridiculous
i like sisterly conflict, i like that they get to grow like this tbh (from what i have seen anyway from gifs etc) i think it’s inaccurate to represent them as perfect sisters all the time they’re both growing as ppl they’re bound to clash esp now that alex isn’t swallowing everything down & now that Kara can rly be herself they’re bound to have to navigate that so I think that’s important
i can put together a more coherent thing later if anyone wants specific answers im just at work rn so this is just a rant but anyways ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ there u go
when cicero writes to atticus in 67 BC: “mind you don’t engage your library to anyone, however keen a lover you may find; for I am hoarding up my little savings expressly to secure that resource for my old age”
i’m crying like,, “don’t u dare give ur library to ur (new) lover bc i am far more important and it’s mine” ????????????????????? i love the m
“so i have taken some time to digest my feelings on the new movie but before i dive into spoilers i loved almost all of it. there were definitely some things that disappointing me but overall i thought it was pretty fucking fantastic.
My favourite part of the interview is when they said they wont change what they are going to do with the show just because of fans/a popular "headcanon" since they have already planned out the show way in advance. Honestly, even though I love Sheith but I would be more satisfied if there is less to no romance between anyone as I believe this show is meant to focus more on teambuilding, friendship and family. Really cant wait to watch what the staffs has installed for us over the seasons. (:
I agree anon, I think they handled the situation really well. Shipping is one thing. But for too long, I feel like there’s been this sentiment in fandom that if you get angry enough, if you harp at and harass the staff enough, if you tear down anyone else who thinks differently–then you’ll get whatever you want. Seeing fans act so entitled and trying to control the narrative is just…not fair to the staff. And this isn’t just shipping either, I believe it also extends to things like demanding to know exact ages as well.
And again, it’s like…considered unprofessional to ask shipping questions at these interviews. It puts the writers in an uncomfortable position. They have said time and again you can ship whatever you like, and they’re all for that. But that doesn’t mean they can change the whole narrative, you know?
And I’ve said this before, but I think most people don’t understand how far in advance you need to plan everything out for a show like this?? You pitch your TV Bible with all your major plot points on day one, so even at the start you know what you want from the story. And by the time season 3 starts airing, a lot of the animation for seasons 4 and 5 is likely already done and so is the writing for 6 and 7.
You just can’t go back and change major things; animation isn’t a medium that is conducive to that. It’s not feasible. You simply don’t have the time or resources. I love vld, and whatever happens with relationships (whether there are any or not) I’m petty sure I’ll still like it. And I mean, ya, I ship sheith. Seeing it happen would be great representation to me. But I also really like their dynamic in canon already. They mean so much to one another, are so supportive and understanding and really care for one another–I can be happy with that.
i havent seen this in the s4 tag yet and the only thing i saw was someone asking the same question but the post just has likes so here is my theory ? - if u can call it that - about it
what made me think a lot about it was when beatrice was having the talk with henrietta about tuition and giving the baby up for adoption
don’t throw away your dreams for this child, don’t let that man poison your life the way he did mine
staying in that house, with both of them arguing a lot of the time, being in that environment is just really. not good.
bojack stayed in that house for years until he moved to california. growing up with parents like that, it will cause so much damage
then it got me thinkin of when beatrice says he loves her sons show, horsin’ around. that made bojack real confused (and me too at first), until i remembered the episode bojack was in beatrice’s old house
beatrice, promise me you’ll never love someone as much as i loved crackerjack
i guess she says “someone” as anyone, but the fact crackerjack was her son is still an important factor in a way.
we know beatrice has dementia, but she still remembers certain things. even before having dementia, maybe she did secretly loved the show. she wanted to love bojack. but she can’t, she saw what it did to her own mother.
this goes into my first point: maybe beatrice see’s something in henrietta that makes her think of bojack. she doesnt want her to be poisoned like she and bojack has because of butterscotch
this is just a theory, im not saying its fact, but i wanted to get it out there. id love to hear more points from other ppl as well if u got any
mumbles into the earpiece mic and everyone’s like what is he saying ,,, what is he talking about ??? (he’s actually reading outloud to himself and doesn’t even notice)
looks intimidating because of his sharp features but honestly…..cried during 101 dalmatians so like
choice of weapon is …. trying to negotiate tbh he isn’t one for violence at all
like he’s so tall and lanky sometimes you’re worried he’ll get knocked over by the wind so every now and then you’ll hold his forearm or wrist and he’ll be like ???? o///o what are you doing ??/
and you’re just like “making sure you’re stable”
tries to keep the more rowdy and headstrong bodyguards under control (cough taehyung cough jungkook) but it never works
you catch him reading while he’s waiting for you outside of a meeting and you sit down and lean your head on his shoulder like ‘ooo what book’ and bodyguard namjoon almost actually tips over because he’s shy hehe
head of the bodyguards, as in he’s the one that gives the orders
extremely observant and calculating - has a formation planned and three different means of attack prepared whenever you’re going to event
tbh you’re like ,,,,isn’t that a bit Much but yoongi’s top priority is your safety and if you get as much as a scratch on you he will literally fall into a depression and blame himself
you find out from bodyguard jungkook that yoongi actually has the cutest sneeze ever and that he’s actually kinda soft. his background photo on his phone is a pic of his dog min holly
and you think that’s cute because when you look over at yoongi he looks all business. serious in his suit, talking into his earpiece and giving directions to others
but while you’re getting lunch and he’s walking at your side keeping a look out you casually ask him how his dog is doing
and cold, ice leader yoongi gets a little flustered because
and you’re like “i heard from jungkook the puppies cute, can i see them?”
yoongi handing his phone over to you with a blush like,,,,um,,,they are cute
and you’re like hehe and you put the phone up next to yoongi’s cheek and you’re like
“just as cute as his owner”
and yoongi might just need to excuse himself to hide his face in his hands
is he your bodyguard? is he your babysitter? is he basically worried about you like a mom? yes to all three
but seriously some of the other guards are like jin, calm down they’re a grown adult they can take care of themselves - but jin is hunched over you like “did you eat breakfast? the guard on morning duty told me you skipped it but you promised me you wouldn’t-”
he’s able to talk with you casually because all his conversations center on him asking about your well being
once even pushed his forehead against yours to tell if you had a fever
and bodyguard namjoon was going to pull him back but you waved your hand
because one) you might actually have a fever and two) holy hell jin is so handsome up close even more handsome than normal,,,,,
made you dinner once and brought it over with him
and when some guard told him to take it home, you wouldn’t eat that trash you fired that guard on the spot and proceeded to eat everything jin brought over
once jin got sick and had to call off the day for work, so you canceled all your plans, made your way over to his house with some soup
and when he tried to protest that you know he’s the bodyguard blah blah blah you like put your finger over his lips and were like
‘id kiss u to shut u up for a moment, but you’re sick so lay down’
the moodmaker of the guards and is the only one who can make even stoic leader yoongi laugh
tries to see the best in people but if they turn out to be scum he has no problem high-kicking them into the trash can
used to be a dancer but started training in martial arts instead, doesn’t carry a gun even though everyone insists he should
“if i can’t solve the problem with a smile, my body will be the necessary shield”
hoseok is polite around you though, yoongi told him that no matter what he needed to keep his energy down when addressing you
so it kinda made you assume hoseok didn’t quite like you, but that’s not true he’s literally always holding back the urge to grin at you or ruffle your hair
and one day when he’s assigned to sit beside you on a long flight you ask him a bit about his life and whatnot and you can see him fidgeting and being tense
and so you get sullen and kinda hide in your blanket and hoseok is like what’s wrong??? and you’re like hoseok,,,,am i a mean boss?? is there something wrong
and hoseok is like whAT NO i LOVE YOU- i mean oh god…..oh god….i mean i love…..you….as my BOSS……
and it’s cute you’re like,,,,really?? you don’t hate me or find me awkward
and hoseok’s expression is complete shock he’s like hate??? no???? i just,,, i want to be careful and polite to show you im serious about being your shield,,,,
granted the next five hours you two spend sharing headphones and watching cartoon movie on the plane heeehu
is the kid who thought bodyguards were cool in the movies and that’s why he choose to become one
it might have to also do w the fact that while he was in training some jerk was like ‘you’re too small…no one will hire you’ and jimin was like hellbent on proving that ass wrong
compensates a lot with his good looks, like he’s the only bodyguard that checks his reflection out in all surfaces (even more than jin)
but like can you blame him he’s been voted ‘best hair on the squad’ for like 2 years in a row
everyone you work with that has their own guards is always asking you where you found jimin like what company he works for and if he’s willing to switch,,,,,,over for more money
and once you even witnessed a colleague of yours tell jimin that she’d pay him twice what you were paying him
and you were like oh he’d be silly not to take that,,,
but jimin just smiled, bowed and shook his head and was like “im not really in it for the money. the person i protect, they ….are holding my heart - if not to be cheesy and put it that way ^^’
when jimin turned and saw you he was like fRICK DID you HEAR ME
and you just giggled and put your hand over his lapel and were like
“im glad i hold a place in your heart, you hold one in mine too”
and you and jimin are cheesy but it’s adorable and yoongi in the back is like PARK GET BACK TO WORK but u guys have this moment
got this job on accident….probably
like does he really know what his duties are? eh……debatable BUT does he like the fact that he could (possibly) get some bad guys with these nunchucks he bought back in college? yes he does like that fact
keeps trying to impress you with dangerous tricks like juggling knives or swinging the nunchucks around his waist
and when he hits himself in the eye you get up to help him but all the other guards are like “sit down!!! don’t worry!!!” and you’re like you guYS dont focus on me focus on taehyung who might get a bruise oh no it’s a black eye for sure-
wears his injuries with pride though like once there was this intense fight with this group of robbers and most of the guards involved stayed home the next day
but there taehyung was, with a bandaged head and an eyepatch and a puffy lip but there he was smiling at you the next morning
and somehow, probably unconsciously, you’ve become protective of him
and so when you guys are going somewhere crowded - the first hand you grab is taehyungs
and taehyung loves it when you stay close and he wraps an arm around your shoulder and holds you to his side
and it’s gotten to a point where even when there’s no present danger you and taehyung hold hands,,,,maybe eskimo kiss,,,,,maybe actually kiss,,,,,when yoongi isn’t looking,,,,,,,
doesn’t like the uniform at all. wore sneakers instead of the mandated dress shoes and was scolded by yoongi for like half an hour
showed up the next day in timbalands and yoongi was like NOT BETTER JEON
keeps “forgetting” his blazer and tie in places
sometimes even slings his blazer around your shoulders to “keep you warm” but in reality you know it’s because he doesn’t want to wear it
chases anyone that looks suspicious and deviates from the plan and literally everyone is like jungkook PLEASE
but he’s like ‘im a lone wolf’ and you can only laugh because it’s endearing
but also gets distracted by anything shiny or loud and like a kid, plays games on his phone when you’re all at a boring meeting
and yoongi is like pUT that away but you’re like psst jungkook what level in candy crush are you up to
you’re supposed to be doing important paperwork in your office but jungkook is teaching you how to play like league or starcraft and both you get scolded by jin
jungkook isn’t corny like the others he’s never like ‘im your shield’ or ‘you’re in my heart’ he’s literally more the type to high five you to show you affection
and it takes something like him finding you crying in fear when someone sends a threat out on your life that makes jungkook want to hold you in his arms forever and keep you safe
and he’s so gentle surprisingly, holding your face and kissing the tears away and you’re like,,,,,,,surprised
and jungkook is just like “ill….never leave you, im by your side for the rest of my life.”
Anyone else that cant stand the "empathy is the most important human thing! You're not a human/good person without it!!" thing??
Like while my empathy is lower towards other humans, but hyper towards animals, i do still have sympathy? And i just am more logical thinking so i just dont always agree on or understand why you’re upset? Why do you insist on that i cant have morals because of that??? Or that im inherently selfish because of it?!
…Why do you think neurotypical expressions are the standard of which how human you are is meassured?
cause he’s making me emotional with all the rainbows and the fact that it’s PARIS and that he sees a lot of rainbows every time he goes on stage, i think he chose a pic like this on purpose and its a beautiful picture indeed. he never interacts nor engage anyone online, every time he does something different from performing its either stalkers meeting or stolen pictures or stunts, he’s always so distant nowadays (and i cannot blame him all things considered) but then he does these things and you can feel the connection again for a moment, you can also tell it’s important for him that people feel free to bring the flags and celebrate even for 1 hour of concert, im just emotional cause im seeing him in 3 days and im not ready for all this
I love writing and i really wanna write a klance fic but i haven't written in a while because i'm really insecure about my writing. I stop after like a sentence. Do you have any tips/motivation when trying to write. BTW it's a klance BAND au where keith is the lead singer. ALSO, I love OTI, can't wait for an update !
bruh i have a degree in music i am ALL ABOUT BAND AUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
In all honesty, it’s really hard to deal with insecurity regarding your writing. Even now, every time I post a chapter I have this overwhelming urge to delete it. That oneshot I posted a week or so ago was even worst - I was like “THIS IS IT. IM DONE. THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE REALIZE THEY WERE ALL FOOLED INTO THINKING I’M A DECENT WRITER”. Tbh I think insecurity and doubt in your skill is a bit of an intrinsic trait for anyone who makes art.
The only advice I have is to know that your art, no matter its quality, is valid and important. All art is important, it’s honestly one of the few things that redeem the human race imo. Make art because you want to, not for any other reasons. You’ll have to tough through a lot of self doubt and self confidence problems but I can assure you that that’s normal (I literally do it every time I sit down to write). If you want to make art you just have to make it, ignore the angry screaming of your mind telling you you aren’t good enough because they’re fucking wrong dude.
That’s the best I’ve got. You aren’t alone in it, though. Being an artist of any kind is hard but it’s such an important job.
I might not be right but its just an opinion. I’ve seen many say Nicole (Wynonna Earp) acted out of character a few times like when she said “I’d shoot anyone for you” or when she kept those results from Waves.
The thing is…. Nicole is a character in development of whom we really know not much about. See, yes she was presented as this kind cupcake… but we dont know her past, her mistakes, her flaws? What if she for example lost someone too important for her before coming to Purgatory? So she goes to extremes when it comes to protecting people she loves. What if she is super insecure therefore felt the need to keep those results from Waves in fear than she’d spiral and Nicole would lose her or be unable to help her…
Now dont get me wrong Im not saying what she did was right. It was WRONG very WRONG. But to me it wasn’t out of character, to me we are just starting to see the depths of this character.
