It’s almost bitter-sweet that this would be the time when Pentatonix takes a break/hiatus or even splits up entirely…
I mean…their biggest music video of the album, Bohemian Rhapsody, paid homage to where they began - by both centering around the couch and also by giving solo moments to each member like they did in The Sing Off. Not only that, but their other major song of the album was Imagine - a powerful, beautiful song which was super personal and at the same time inspirational. The whole album, possibly their last for a while, was spectacular in the sense that it’s so meaningful! Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy was featured on their Evolution of Music video, and they’ve sung Over The Rainbow a countless number of times! Their work over the years has been growing to a crescendo and it’s stuck with them and shaped them into who they are now, and they’ve done something so brilliant with that!!
I’m not saying I want them to split up - far from it - but I’m just saying that now is such a nostalgic time to do it. And honestly? They deserve a break
Kuro: err… what are you talking about? Yaku san
Yaku: as i said… i wanna sleep together with you
Kuro: what the heck are you talking !? You just sleep on your futon is ok dont you!? (whisper)
Yaku: cus my futon is near a window when the wind blows, it makes a creak. it is scary, you know (whisper)
Kuro: that isnt a problem (whisper)
Yaku: ahh im done — you are annoying!!!! Just quickly get in my futon!
Kuro: what about you until now? You who you were before until now!!!?
You know, the thing I love most about tianshan is this seeming, keen contrast they have. Poor, rich. Weak, powerful. Family, no family. Hot, cold. Short-tempered and reckless, calm and calculated. Pure, tainted. Also, red and blue. (ok I know, this might be subjective and you don’t have to agree with me at all, I understand.. yet I couldn’t help but notice.. that blue is such a He Tian color? He always seems to wear blue shirts and yeah I could easily take it as ‘perhaps he likes keeping it minimal or whatever?’ and shrug it off, but I just can’t avoid the aesthetics of this damn ship. Minimal
black/blue plain clothing that emphasizes his well-build body, whereas Guan Shan prefers clothes a bit more loosen, you know, the way skinny boys would wear. Just so you know, I’m not talking about the uniform! Remember that time they met randomly on the street and Guan Shan was munching on his lovely sandwich ((the day he will happily manage to eat it I will take a day off and celebrate)) and he was wearing that white-peach shirt with a nice looking design on the back? Let me tell you, the boy may not be able to afford expensive clothing or whatever, unlike someone, but damn he has style.
Anyways. I just found it intriguing how, even to such an extent (details, palette) they are ying-yang. Two poles that can never touch. There’s this endless distance between them, as if they belong to two different worlds and there’s no way they would, well, collide. Get together, be something. Too complicated. Too dangerous.
In fact, I believe they aren’t parallels at all. They’re just the same. “Where I end and you begin” kind of thing. It’s like planting two identical seeds on different types of ground and watch them grow. Less water for one, maybe less sunlight for the other. Of course they won’t grow the same
— and one might turn out blue and the other red but that’s just the beauty of variety.
The more I analyze them as characters the more I find just how alike they are. Which is why I believe they canand will fall in love with each other. Isn’t love all about finding yourself in another and all that? Uh, yeah, kind of sappy and overused, but true nonetheless. There’s no wonder they are so drawn to each other. Studying each other, more or less consciously. Always, always intrigued (where’s He Tian going? what’s redhead’s name anyway?). Mo Guan Shan might be all “I don’t fucking get you” but I’d say he’s the only one who can actually fucking get He Tian.
They are day and night and they always meet at dawn and I think it’s beautiful and I want them happy.
No but why is the book problematic? What's wrong with them? I only read the first 2 and they seem okay to me. Its a little... Off... In some parts, but other that it seems okay.
ok im not really sure if this is the same anon that told me to go fuck myself if it is then i wish you love and happiness (also if it is then why are you judging me for not reading the books if you’ve only read 2) and if it isnt then i’ll gladly explain nonnie, btw im gonna talk about the books and casserole clam
Let’s start with the LGBT/queer part of the books/problems:
Alec is biphobic. He makes fun of Magnus for having been with men and women.
ALEC WAS SUPPOSED TO DIE IN HER FIRST DRAFT i see she loves malec so much she was gonna have her only male gay character die FOR LOVE GUYS
Casserole said how she “headcanons” Raphel as asexual, which first of all was kinda weird?? bc she changed his sexuality and then said “its a hc” like she is the literal author??? everything she says has to be canon???, and second of all it’s rude towards the ace/aro part of the fandom bc not having any rep is terrible and having someone give you that rep and then take it away from you is the wrost thing ever
Alec’s sexuality is HIS ONLY STORYLINE, he is the token gay character.
Apparently there’s a lesbian couple in the books that is sent to an island or something
Magnus is canonically bisexual but then she “headcanoned” him as pansexual bc for her they are kinda the same, what she is doing only shows how little knowledge she has over queer stuff and how little respect she has for her characters’ sexualities.
Simon and Izzy, a straight, white (in the books) couple get a happy ending, and Magnus and Alec, a same sex, biracial couple don’t. Now, because the straights are gonna hate me for this, i’m not saying straight white couples don’t deserve happy endings i’m just saying that if she is such an ally then why didn’t she give BOTH couples a happy ending?
Malec was denied proper development in her books, to my knowledge not even the most important parts of Alec’s ONLY storyline (the token gay) where in his POV, their entire relationship was in the background (she like sends them away for half a book i think), it wasn’t even put in the main saga of the books even tho alec IS a main character.
After the show became such a popular thing she was like “oh i’m gonna write more malec” what did she do? she decided to write smut, which only proves that she fetishizes gay sex, reminder that this is a STRAIGHT woman that is writting about two male characters doing something sexual only bc she wants a t t e n t i o n.
she prides herself for being an ally but in reality she is a straight person that has internalized homophobia and DOES NOT ACCEPT IT AND TRY TO CHANGE IT
Now let’s go to the racist part of the books:
Its very clear, and even in the show, how much social differences downworlders and shadowhunters have, it’s not subtle how much she was trying to make racism a thing in the books. Shadowhunters have so much internalized racism towards downworlders i don’t even think they notice it, and it’s even obvious in the show how much they seriously don’t think downworlers are equal, and yes i’m talking about EVERY CHARACTER, but im not here to talk about the show, anyways… you know how i said Izzy and Simon get a happy ending? well that’s bc Simon is turned into so many things but hey hey surprise he ends up becoming a shadowhunter and being happy with the love of his life bc now he is not filthy and digusting like the downworlders now he derserves respect and love. You see, it’s not that it is a bad thing to talk about social differences in YA novels because you can eassily educate people (if you are well educated yourself), BUT cc did such a bad job with it she souldn’t have tried, why not leave simon as a vampire but have him be respected by everyone? why not have sh realize they are racist and that they should change? why not at the end of her books have laws be changed so downworlders can be equal? LOL NO WHY DO THAT WHEN I CAN CHANGE SIMON AND MAKE HIM PURE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE
Anyways let’s move to the incest part:
Now imo this is the most controvercial issue in her books, CC has an incest fetish, it’s disgusting and so so so wrong…
Someone asked her something about TVD and she was like “lol why don’t you ship the ones that are brothers”, she wrote a fic about ron and ginny , her entire story is like an incest fest, Clary and Jace find out they are brothers but do they stop being weird and sexual with each other? nope they keep doing it BUT ITS OK BECAUSE ITS LOVE AND THEY ARE NOT ACTUAL BROTHER AND SISTER if that is someone’s actual excuse to see Clace as something romantic then please ask them what is wrong with them, even if they aren’t brother and sister they THOUGHT they were and while they THOUGHT they were they were still all over each other BUT ITS LOVE SO ITS OK, also isn’t there a part where sebastian tries to rape his actual sister (clary)? ha the rape part wasn’t disgusting enough??? ADD SOME INCEST, isnt that how clare’s brain works?
Can we also talk about how Alec has a crush on Jace even tho they are B R O T H E R S… maybe not blood related but they are still brothers and it’s just so fucking wrong. Tbh im surprised she didn’t try to have Izzy be attracted to Alec.
I read a post yesterday about someone that said how the incest stroyline was such a huge part of the books and that they hoped the writers did a good job with it… WHAT KIND OF PSYCHOTIC THINKING IS THIS there is no good way to treat incest what the fuck is wrong with cc stans????????? its all so wrong
BUT IF YOU ARE IN LOVE I GUESS ITS A OK TO HUMP WHO YOU THINK IS YOUR SISTER
Ok so now… my issues with book!malec:
For what i have read this relationship is really toxic, Magnus and Alec start their relationship when Alec is 17, which is not only illegal but oh so wrong, they don’t communicate at all (i think Alec almost takes Magnus’ inmortality away and doesn’t even give a fuck if Magnus is ok with it), Alec is such a biphobic asshole toward Magnus…
Straight people like to complain so much about Show!Malec but this is literally one of the very veryveryvery few same sex relationships that is healthy AND THEY HAVENT EVEN STARTED THEIR OFFICIAL RELATIONSHIP give me a break
I really want to point out how hard it is to create a queer character/relationship and not fuck it all up if you are straight and know nothing about queer romance, she tried and failed. It was awful and gross and please NEVER let her write queer romance ever again.
(Her cishet stans talk about how much Alec/malec’s stroyline matter so much to them, dude IM QUEER IT ALSO MATTERS TO ME BUT HER POTRAYAL OF IT WAS TERRIBLE SHUT UP)
Ok so now let’s jump to the anti cc boat:
She enjoys toxic relationships (she made a character go back to her abuser).
Is such a petty woman isn’t she like 40 wtf
almost got a girl kicked out of college
slut shamed izzy, which was extremely rude because emeraude and the writers have done a great job they dont derserve this shit
made her stans attack a fan
something is gay? time to sexualize it but dont worry she is such a great ally she is great her representation is 10/10 total knowledge of the LGBT+ community
so manny more terrible things tbh
And i know some of you are gonna be like BTU HSE CRATED TEH SADHOW HUNTERS WORLD lmao no she didnt she plagiarized everything, there is like a chart someone made where they compare everything in TMI with Dark- hunters and my dude it’s pretty fucking similar. And she didnt exactly create her characters, she took the personalities from HP characeters and put them in her books, oh yeah that reminds me people are actually saying tmi is better than harry potter??? no it isnt???? leave hp alone
Did i forget anything please tell me i’m here to add things to this list.
Also if you cc stans are gonna come crap on my blog or this post, im gonna ignore you so don’t waste your precious time please.
Edit: I forgot how Izzy and Clary literally hate each other for no reason other than the girl on girl hate trope, which is childdish and gross
AAHHH I Just want TO SCREAM ABOUT HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR ACCOUNT BC I REALLY LOVE THE BOFT (buff+soft=boft) NERD BOY THAT IS TENYA IIDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA*breath*AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ok im done screaming now
*SCREAMS WITH YOU*
YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! LOVE THE BOFT BOY. HE IS SO SQUARE AND WONDERFUL. Thank you for liking my blog!!!!
OK! I can't find my words rn. Yixing has just a fine line to pass and get into my heart. Like boom! How did you do that? Omfg I cant wait to read the scene between them and then Jongdae very jealous you're killing me. Okay im done and out now cause you're probably tired of me talking about my shit but I think this serie- im glad that you turned this into a serie- is one of the bests. Also, thank u so so much I hope you had also a great day! Well, here is night so there is supposed to be day. ❤️
said: Me reread your replies about Jd and his attitude and then Yixing and oh no “so intense” im loosing my mind. I love you. God blesses you! ❤️❤️😘😍
I’m having a great day, thank you! I hope you’re having a good night! I love you so much and I could never be tired of you!!! NEVER! 💘Hehe, you’re going to explode with the next part I’m sure. I’m just going to drop a snippet from the next chapter for you because I love you.
-Snippet from Part 4 of Primrose-
☾ ❁ ❁ ❁ ☽
Yixing sighed, “She looks bad and I’ve even offered human blood from a blood bank or even Jongdae’s blood in a cup if that would make her happy, but she won’t take it.”
Minseok nodded, “From what I know, she needs to feed straight from the tap the first few times for her fangs to come in all the way. She’s probably in extreme pain and while giving her blood would perk her up, her fangs would still be aching.”
With a shake of his head, Jongdae closed his eyes, “She won’t drink from human and she sure as hell won’t drink from me.”
Junmyeon bit his lip. “Minseok,” he said carefully and when he had his attention he went on, saying his words low and slowly while he eyed Jongdae. “is it possible for her to feed off of someone else?”
The words had barely come out of Junmyeon’s mouth before Jongdae was standing, his eyes a flaming red color. “Absolutely not. She’s my mate. You know how intimate blood sharing is between vampires!”
Minseok took a deep breath and stood, ignoring Jongdae’s outburst. “Yes. That would suffice. While human blood would be best, and Jongdae’s blood will be better, another vampire can do.” Minseok walked over to Jongdae and put both hands on his shoulders, “Sit down,” he ordered, “you need to think about her, not yourself.”
Jongdae was going to argue but Minseok had a strength advantage and was eventually able to force Jongdae to sit. He crossed his arms over his chest, resembling a small child but he didn’t care. He didn’t want his mate drinking from one of his brothers. It was wrong and it just wasn’t fair – but he didn’t know if he had a choice. “She doesn’t trust anyone,” Jongdae murmured.
“Actually,” Junmyeon started causing a glare to shoot his way from Jongdae, “She trusts Yixing.”
Jongdae’s glare snapped over to Yixing but Yixing was already shaking his head and putting his hands up. “Absolutely not. I have nothing against the girl but,” he pointed at Jongdae, “do you see how he’s fucking looking at me? Yeah, I don’t want to fight with him anymore than we have already gone at it.”
I am SUPER confused. I recently went back to my old gym after a year or two. There is this Asian personal trainer who I have not seen before, lets call him ® and the only reason I noticed him is because of his stares. First time I saw him I was like ayyy hot asian guy and that was it.
But then the staring started. I can always feel him around me, like he wants to say something but doesn’t. He is always in my vicinity. The first time I really noticed the staring is when one day I was walking into the gym and he had a client he was walking to the weight room he was asian too, like I dont know if he is chinese, thai, korean at this point. His client looked like he is really into hiphop from the way he was dressed. I will usually have my headphones on and staring at my phone most of the time. Anyway, they were walking down the stairs towards my way and I swear to God they did not break eye contact, it was like a constant stare for like 30 secs as they went into the weight room. I stared back because it caught me so off guard I was like, are they? what! ok! look down haha. I noticed ® more because he works at the gym and his face is familiar.
MMMM that’s a bit of a sticky question and one I’m going to kind of indirectly answer? I have nothing but respect for fic authors - it’s hard enough to write, even harder to publish your work for public consumption and criticism - but I caN say my fic turn offs (plus I ….can’t remember the bad fics I’ve read anyway, I didn’t finish or forgot them for a reason omg)
these are all, again, my own character interpretations and things I don’t personally like so if you do more props to yOU, this kind of turned into some of my phoenix and a little bit of edgeworth meta under the cut but w/E
first off, thank you so so so SO much for the response to the last chapter! it was….incredible. honestly. i was just blown away. thank you for being patient and being understanding, and thank you for putting up with all my teasing
i have more (so much more) i’ll say next time, but i don’t know when that’ll be. i’m working on a lot of college stuff and original things for my portfolio, as well as a big bang for another fandom and a collab fic. but i promise i’m always slowly working on this stuff.
also??? brick walls is on page 3 of the ml tag when sorted by kudos???? thank you so much omg
this chapter isn’t necessarily the most interesting and it’s less than half the length of ch11, but i still hope you enjoy!
Marinette has her arms around Adrien’s waist when he wakes up. She’s already awake, her head resting on his chest and vacant eyes staring at the wall.
“Morning,” he murmurs, brushing her bangs away from her eyes.
She gives him a small smile, but it doesn’t reach her eyes. “Hi.”
“What time is it?” He regrets asking when she pulls away to check her phone.
She frowns at her phone.
“It’s nothing,” she says quickly. “It’s only five, but we fell asleep early.” She swings her feet over the bed, motioning to the bathroom. “I’m going to—” She lifts her phone.
Adrien nods and reaches for his glasses. “I’ll be here.”
It takes him a few minutes to get up once she leaves. He can hear her muffled voice through the walls. He doesn’t know who or what she’s talking about, but he hopes it’s Alya.
He slides on his glasses and scrolls through the notifications on his phone. He shoots a quick update to Nathalie, usually he would’ve done it last night but he was asleep and she’s probably been lowkey panicking since then, before tackling the texts.
Nino only sent a few, but Alya didn’t hold back. At all.
