hahaha guys the musical version of Romeo and Juliet is just so quality, honestly:
French? Hungarian? You can listen to the soundtrack in English probably, but pick a language and prepare for An Experience
French version is Romeo et Juliette, and it’s the original play/music
the Montagues and Capulets are color-coded. Pretty sure it’s supposed to be red and blue, but honestly, it’s more like magenta and violet. Sharkboy vs Lavagirl, omg
everyone’s hair is so Extra in this version
the d a n c i n g
Les Rois du Monde. Just that song/scene
everyone looks like MCR Killjoys era, and the general visual and musical theme is like, Mad Max if governments still existed
everyone! is so! gorgeous! and amazing!
i just love Juliette a lot in this version, okay?
dialogue updated to more modern language (as far as my subtitle-reading self can tell) and it works really well
nobody cares about Romeo’s lonely soul because everyone is too busy TEARING UP VERONA IN SYNCHRONIZED DANCE STEPS
okay, so I’m a bit biased. I think you should watch both! Definitely, you should watch the French version, because it’s amazing and original! but actually, if you’re going to only watch one of them, you should watch the Hungarian version because:
Benvolio is like 97% more Personality in this version
T H E DANCING
alas, the color-coding is not nearly as obvious, but do not fear, because the hair is cranked up to 300% to make up for it
idk if this was a mistranslation or if this is genuinely the closest English meaning to match the Hungarian, but somewhere in the middle of a really serious song, Romeo says something like “my buddies, my friends” and I can’t stop laughing
Juliet is so pretty and cute and she’s just so excited to fall in love! and meet someone who is cute and nice and wants to kiss her!
if you didn’t already ship R&J you’re freaking going to now they’re so cute i’m literally covering my face with my hands and squealing
pretty much every time Benvolio and Mercutio are sharing the stage, I cannot stop smiling
this Romeo is like Romeo+Hamlet. he’s all introspective and premonitions of doom, so it punches you in the feels that much harder when it turns out he’s RIGHT
the Montagues are a pack of young, feral, hedonistic, heathens and it’s fantastic
the serious parts are actually serious, and they’ll tear you up, let me say. if you didn’t feel feelings about the deaths and the suicides before, you will while watching this musical
(those last 6 are true of the French version, too, I just stuck them in here because I’m biased)
Prom hasn’t been feeling very well but he’s not willing to skip on his training, not least of all because it’s time he gets to spend with Noct. He takes a hit and it’s not very hard but Prompto doubles over, mouth open in a silent scream as the colour drains from his face.
Noctis of course assumes he’s done something to cause this, not making the connection that Prompto’s self proclaimed ‘it’s just a cold’ might have been something more.
Something like maybe appendicitis. He tries to get back to his feet because Noct is panicking thinking that he’s somehow caused this. But prompto doesnt even get half way to standing before he’s collapsing and Noctis drops down after him.
relatively keeps to himself, is the kind of mysterious neighbor that no one really knows much about
sometimes kids are afraid of him because he has a really deadpan expression so the moms are always like “wonwoo-ah ,,,,, please smile? it’s so nice out!!”
but he ends up just getting embarrassed and then asking mingyu when they hangout at a cafe like “kids never let me pat their heads,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,am i scary?”
and mingyu is like uh WELL,,,,,,,,,,,,
but in reality wonwoo is a sweethearted angel. like he picks up litter if he sees it around the apartment building and always offers to hold groceries for any of the elder neighbors
also he always gets cutely startled when another neighbor’s dog comes over to him and sniffs him or barks in greeting and he’s like !!!!! usually ends up dropping whatever he’s holding
and he looks down at the little like ??? pomeranian and is like “so,,,,,scary,,,,”
and the owner is like omg,,,,,,,,,,,no they’re not scary they’re cute do you wanna pet them??? and wonwoo is like NO ,,, no ,,,,thank you i gtg
his apartment is really clean and well kept,,,,,,he has this vintage looking record player and collects mostly older jazz stuff that’s soothing and sometimes even a lil sad
when his friends come over they’re always like “dude,,,,,,,do you have any records from like pop groups???” and wonwoo just blinks and is like “why would i have that,,,,,,i listen to records before i sleep i don’t think i could fall asleep to snsd’s ‘party’,,,,,,”
he’s also a big fan of blankets and has them everywhere so he can fall asleep anywhere he pleases: the living room, the bedroom, the goddamn kitchen -
doesn’t really decorate his walls but has a photo of parents and brother in the hallway and every morning he waves goodbye to it before he leaves,,,,,it’s cute
and you have seen wonwoo before, mostly in passing. he never really looks up from his phone or book so it’s more like passing a ghost than anything
until one day you’re both on the floor at the same time and as you unlock your door, you take a step in until you look back and see that,,,,,,,,,,,
wonwoo is staring at his door and you’re like ?????? what’s he doing
and then you see him literally fall forward with his forehead against the door and you’re like IS HE OK and you’re hesitant but you call out like “everything alright???”
and wonwoo turns his head and he’s like ,,,,,,, “i don’t have my keys,,,,,,,im locked out.”
and you’re like ,,,,,,did you,,,,,,,forget them inside??? and he nods,,,,shamefully looking at the floor and you’re like oh,,,,,unsure of what to do
but then you hear it. a growl.
a stomach growl
and you can’t help but laugh and wonwoo puts a hand shyly over his shirt and he’s like “e-excuse me,,,” but you’re like “if you’re hungry you can come over, im just making ramen tonight so?”
and wonwoo is shy, he’d usually probably decline because he doesn’t want to bother you but then he hears his stomach growl again and he knows mingyu (who has a spare to his apartment) is gonna take like 2 hours to get here
so he nods and you grin, telling him not to be shy and come over.
and once you’re inside, wonwoo sitting awkwardly at your kitchen table you’re like “so,,,,,while the water is boiling - tell me about yourself.”
and wonwoo is like “there’s not much,,,,,” and he tells you that he has a brother, he likes to listen to music, write lyrics sometimes,,,,,and he’s kinda like “im sorry im boring” and you’re like no not at all and once the ramen is done you guys keep like talking
and wonwoo is a little reserved, obviously you guys are strangers basically, but you keep listening with enthusiasm and you smile when he attempts a joke and ask him more about himself
and unlike most people you’re not,,,,,,,making some comment about how he looks angry or tired. you’re just,,,,,,,genuinely listening and it’s been a long time since wonwoo has met someone new who didn’t right away seem judgmental of how kind of simple he is about most things
and once he realizes that mingyu is calling him to let him know he’s here, wonwoo is kind of upset that he has to leave the conversation,,,,,
but you tell him that it was nice talking and he thanks you for the food and when he meets mingyu out in the hall
mingyu is like nudging wonwoo and he’s like “that neighbor you were with - they’re cute.” and wonwoo is like “oh,,,,yeah they are,,,,,and they’re nice,,,”
and mingyu’s like wiggling his eyebrows and he’s like “did you just call someone nice,,,,,,,,,hmmmmmm i thought you weren’t a people person,,,,”
and wonwoo is like GIVE me the spare keys mingyu
and mingyu is like “go ask the neighbor on a date and i will.” and wonwoo is like m I NG Yu,,,,,,,but mingyu won’t let up because he’s like c’mon i know you think they’re cute
so when you hear a knock on your door and open it, wonwoo is biting his lip but he’s also like “not,,,,not to be weird but are you free this weekend? i just want to get to know you more so we can get coffee,,,,,,,if this isn’t awkward,,,,”
and you’re like oh,,,,,,,,you’re flattered and you’re like sure!!! and wonwoo is like ,,,,,,,,well in shock because you agreed but also blushing because wow,,,,,,,he actually got a date with you,,,,,,
and you exchange a time and place and you smile before closing the door and wonwoo swears his heart beats a bit faster
but then he hears mingyu’s voice like GET IT BRO and wonwoo is like “give me the spare this time or eLSE-”
always running out of his apartment because he seemingly is late no matter what???
like no matter how many alarm clocks he sets,,,,,,he leaves his house juggling his keys, his bus pass, his jacket, his water ,,,,,, and his hair looks like it has never seen a brush in it’s life
he always ends up forgetting something too. usually it’s literally he forget to lock the door to his apartment
but this is his charm!!!! all the older people are like “he’s such a youthful young boy full of energy!” and all the kids think he’s super cool because he dances and does taekwondo
and also hoshi has this bad habit of listening to music way too loud in his headphones so if you’re on the elevator with him you’re sure to be hearing shinee’s 1of1 album blasting through the small space
and speaking of shinee, hoshi looks up to them so much he has their poster up on his wall. well he has a lot of stuff on his wall from the medals he’s won in taekwondo, to bizarre polaroid photos of seokmin and minghao, to autographs he’s gotten from famous choreographers he’s met
and his wall is a mess, so is his floor and bed. like there’s training clothes everywhere and his bed is never made and the only saving grace is the can of febreeze he got from mingyu as a gift on secret santa
his refrigerator is just big bottles of water and frozen sushi he got from the grocery store and like no one understands what in the world he’s living off??? maybe he’s running off energy from the sun??? who knows
and you know hoshi, it’s impossible not to with his crazy bedhead and his singing outloud to ‘sherlock’ habit
and you guys are friends, not like super close but you know enough to talk in the hall and one day as you’re talking you mention you just beat your highscore in ‘just dance’ on this song by usher
and hoshi’s like “that’s your highest score? i could crush you if that’s your best.” and you’re like OH WANNA BET
and hoshi is like hell yeah i wanna bet come over and ill show you how a pro does it
and so you end up sitting on his couch (which he had to clean, there were chip bags and notebooks on it) watching hoshi turn on his wii and before starting the game he turns around to give you a grin and you’re like PFFT you’ll never beat my score
but ,,,,,,,,,,you are wrong. he beats your score. that and also,,,,,,you’ve never seen such a good dancer in your life
BUT ARE YOU GONNA ADMIT THAT ? NO WE DON’T LOSE IN THIS HOUSE
so you get up there and you bust out everything you have and hoshi is like OOOOOOO you look serious,,,,but it won’t be enOUGh
and by the end of it you’re huffing and puffing but,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,YOU GET A HIGHER SCORE
and you’re like AYEEEEE I WON GIVE ME THOSE 50 BUCKS WE BET
and hoshi is staring at the TV with his jaw on the floor but then he’s smiling and he’s like “you’re so cool!!!!!!!! you actually beat me!!!!!” and he high-fives you because tbh he’s competitive but like,,,,,,,he’s also a sweet guy
and you’re like ohg;ldskgfh,,,,,i did,,,,,,,,,,,,,
and hoshi is like “i don’t have fifty bucks on me, but i do have enough to take you out to dinner? it’ll be japanese take out though,,,,,” and you’re like LOL that’s fine. free food = good prize
and hoshi like offers out his hand and he’s like “shall i escort you to the five star restaurant than?” and he’s got this mock british accent but you’re laughing and you take his hand
and you only blush when you realize that you guys are still holding hands as you leave the building and go up the street,,,,,,,,,,,,
and maybe you blush even more when hoshi is like “doesn’t this kinda feel like a first date?” right in front of the cashier at the takeout place and you’re like SHUT
but he’s just grinning and you’re like,,,,,,,what is going on
and hoshi is like “i figured just dinner isn’t enough so, ill add another thing to your prize.” and you’re like what is it??”
and then he like pokes his cheek and is like “this date with me~~~~” and you’re like never do aegyo again but omg you’re cute,,,,,,,
casanova of your apartment building
winks and uses the same “you look like a flower every time i see you, but this time - you’re in full bloom~” line on everyone,,,,,,,,,and when i mean everyone i M E A N E V E R y o n E
even the dogs that live in the building ,,,, like there’s a lady with a little chihuahua on the second floor and after telling the lady she looks ten years younger than before, seungcheol like calls the dog a beauty and wow is that dog blushing?????? probably
he’s kind of a really popular guy,,,,like to the point that people will wait outside your building and be like “does seungcheol really live here??? i heard he’s so handsome you can’t look him straight in the eyes,,,,,,,”
but in reality,,,,,, his apartment is just the most least romantic thing ever LOL
like there’s just sports equipment, sports magazines, and empty water bottles everywhere ,,,,,,, and his laundry pile is so big it’s threatening to fall over,,,,,,, and like the only thing he has for decoration in his whole apartment is like a picture frame he got as a housewarming gift from seungkwan but ,,,,,, there’s no picture in it
and like he’s lucky because he has a balcony he can go out onto but on it is his bike that takes up half the space and dying plants he never takes care of
and he’s so,,,,,,,like well-kept when he leaves the house but then he comes home and throws everything off and like literally rolls into bed or plays video games in just his sweatpants
and you know more than anyone else how the ‘suave and cool’ seungcheol really is because you’ve been friends since before you were neighbors
and you’re always over at his place sitting on his balcony and just talking (mostly gossiping because seungcheol actually has a LOT to say and the view from the balcony is nice)
and sometimes you come over and trip over like a jumprope he left on the floor and the only reason those plants on his balcony are not DEAD but definitely close is because you water them when you drop by LOL
and seungcheol tries to bribe you to do his laundry but you flick his forehead and you’re like “no. im not your maid. get joshua to do it.”
and one day you come over and you’re like ,,,,,, seungcheol your apartment is negative ten degrees” and seungcheol
who is sitting on his couch in a literal down coat is like “yeah i forgot to pay the heating bill.”
and you’re like OH MY GOD but you’re also like get up loser you can spend the night at my place and not die here like a human icicle
and seungcheol is like like i love you you’re my everything my SAVIOR
and you’re like SAVE IT DO NOT GREASE ME
so seungcheol ends up in your living room on your couch instead and you’re like ok goodnight and seungcheol is like “hEY,,,,,since im here let’s watch a scary movie or something” and you’re like dude we’re not kids this isn’t a sleepover your dumb butt literally didn’t pay- and seungcheol is like fine fine you’re scared I GET IT
and you pause because exCUSE me who did you call scared???? move over
and you plop down next to him and pick the scariest movie you can find and you’re like “first one to scream is a big loser - ok?” and seungcheol is like “when in my life have i ever screamed? you’re on”
but halfway through,,,,like you aren’t even paying attention because you’re sitting under the same blanket as seungcheol and like his arm is practically around your waist and your thighs are touching and he’s really big and warm
and you’re tired,,,,,,you had a long day and before you know it you’re knocked out. like what movie? what bet? ZZZZ time
and seungcheol notices, and he’s like oh they’re asleep,,,,,he should move so you can lay down
but as he’s watching your face illuminated only by the light of the TV like ,,,,,, seungcheol notices finally just how nice your features are
and you two have been friends for like ever,,,,, but he’s never quite looked at you and taken it all in,,,,,,,,and somehow now that he is
seungcheol is like ,,,,,, oh god ,,,,,,,, you’re cute
and not only that???? you literally have saved his ass so many times from bringing him actual food when he forgot to grocery shop, to helping him get hotpacks when he pulled his shoulder, to now,,,,,,when he found himself freezing in his own apartment like YOU saved him
and leaning down he brushes some hair from your face and he’s like,,,,, you know what im not gonna move
and instead moves a bit so your head falls on his shoulder more comfortably and he moves the blanket off himself so it’s covering all of you
and he falls asleep too,,,,,,,,,with the movie still playing
and in the morning you open your eyes and you’re like wow my mattress is so warm but broad and oooo it’s moving
but then you look down and oh hey there seungch- WHAT
and you want to jump up and be like WHAT IS GOING ON but seungcheol lazily opens one eye and is like “go back to sleep,,,,,,,”
and for some reason nothing feels wrong about this,,,it’s surprising but not wrong,,,,,,,,
so you just shrug and go back to sleep as you feel seungcheols arms wrap tighter around you
and oh my god isn’t the best friends to lovers cliche amazing,,,,,,it really is hehe
No, I'm not getting off the only working elliptical machine just so you can use it.
me: 24 y.o. F, 15-20 lbs away from my ideal weight, making lifestyle
changes and going to the gym more often to combat my weight problem.
Determined to get slim and fit again.
Don’t be tantrum lady: late 40’s F, loses her shit over an elliptical
I was on one of two specially designed ellipticals in a row, they’re
the only two of that type my gym has. The one to the right of me is
wobbly and hasn’t been working, so I used the one on the left. This
middle-aged lady tries to get on the one on the right, she discovers
it’s broken. She sees me using the one next to it and is irritated that I
have a working one and she doesn’t. Instead of handling the situation
like a reasonable adult and using another machine, she stomps up to the
service desk and tells a staff member. She angrily marches all the way
over to the machine, with him following. He inspects it, and discovers
the machine is in fact broken. He suggests she use another machine like
she should have done in the goddamn first place, and she, I shit you
not, stomps her foot, sighs loudly, and rolls her eyes, all the while
glancing at me as if it’s somehow MY fault I’m using the working machine
and the one next to me is broken. Lol.
This is only half of the story. I stay on my elliptical, she finally
takes the hint and uses a slightly different type of machine that’s
directly in front of the one I’m using. She makes a big show of how hard
it is for her to use it, looking wobbly and unsteady the whole time.
She’s huffing and grumbling to herself, all the while wishing I’d get
off of my machine. I don’t get off. I take a sip of my drink (water
mixed with hydroxycut powder), realize I have to pee, walk off the
machine, but leave my stuff there because I am NOT done, do my business
in the bathroom, and come back. The lady is fuming at this point. I see
her get fed up with the machine she is using, angry that I have returned
to my spot and will not move. I smirk and watch as she stomps over to
the stairmaster, and use that for a grand total of 5 minutes>. She
stamps off that one as well, and walks back over to the machine I am
using, looks me directly in the eyes, as if to say “I’m entitled to that
machine.” I stare at her deadpan as if to say back “No bitch, I am NOT
moving.” She tries to get BACK ON THE BROKEN ONE, discovers that no, it
did not magically get fixed out of thin air, FURIOUSLY stomps off into
the bathroom, is now blathering to someone on her phone and screaming. I
never saw her again. lmfao.
TL/DR: Middle-aged woman at the gym throws a temper tantrum over a
broken elliptical, tries to guilt me into giving her my spot. I don’t.
Can you do a scenario with Shinee at cinema please?? ❤❤❤ I love this blog. It's the best!!

it’s okay he gets the gist
but he’s going to watch the movie at home bc it’s a good movie ok he gets what happened
bursts out the doors when the movie’s over like I AM
Can we just talk about how perfect Community’s 6x04 “Queer Studies and Advanced Waxing” is?
Like there’s so much to it, from Chang’s concern that he was only cast as Miyagi because he’s asian, to Abed (canonically recognized as having ASD) having intense empathy for the baby birds (with the wonderfully tragic subtle parallel of his mother having left him when he was young).
But the best part was the amazing discussion of sexuality and it’s complexities.
Dean Pelton has always been assumed as somewhat queer. He is very attracted to Jeff and he often dresses in drag. But sexuality is so much more complicated than just liking boys or girls. There are more than two genders, more than monogamy, more than monosexuality, more than physical attraction, etc etc. And while any kind of positive LGBTQIA representation is awesome, it’s usually something like what the school board tries to do in the episode. They want the Dean to be a neatly packaged, cardboard cut out of the gay white cis male. But that denies so much of who he is and also reduces him to a symbol of how not homophobic they are rather than a complete person.
I cannot get over how well Frankie sums up how problematic this is
“When a person becomes symbolic, they gain symbolic power at the price of independent power.”
Omg. I am obsessed with how perfect that line is. Frankie Dart is my hero. Plus, she subtly comes out to Jeff and the Dean as queer like it ain’t no thing. New fave characacter.
But most importantly is the vagueness of the Dean’s metaphor. Personally, I took the never ending handkerchief metaphor to mean his sexuality is complex and constantly evolving, while still having some things in common with being straight up gay. Both handkerchiefs and rabbits can be pulled from a hat. But the rabbit is pulled out once and done so it is much simpler, while the handkerchief progresses over time (hence “never ending” handkerchief). Additionally, the rabbit out of a hat is a magic show trope; it is the example non-magicians use as what a magician does (like how heterosexuals only think of queer people as simply gay). Whereas the handkerchief trick, while there is sometimes of an awareness of it, isn’t really as commonly thought about or represented. There’s even a ton of variety within how the handkerchief trick is performed; it doesn’t even have to be out of a hat but can be from a sleeve, mouth, pocket, or behind an audience member’s ear. I think I’m letting this metaphor run away with me, but you get the idea.
I also like that they don’t say what else the Dean is. Because, as Frankie said, your sexuality “is nobody’s business.” The Dean is simply himself.
Sexuality and gender is a spectrum that extends in a multitude of directions, not just gay or straight. And when we stop having to label and understand something in order to accept it, then we will have truly made progress.
“We’re both baristas and sometimes I have trouble reaching for things and I show up to work one day to find a personalized stool with hearts and my name on it i hATE YOU but also thanks” Write this write this write this *chanting* Shortie Zaynie and tall Leeyum ❤️❤️💙💙💙 Pretty please with cherries on top 🍒🍒😍
pretty-little-zaynie said:“You are very tall and I am very short so you run into me all the time and honestly this is getting ridiculous” omg please do this one I so imagine a cute little grumpy nerdy Zayn facing up to jock Liam
I hope this wasnt too all over the place!
Zayn’s pretty sure he’ll never need glasses,
not even in his old age, since he’s spent a lot of time exercising his eye
muscles by rolling them so much.
He was in his first year of university when he
realized that he couldn’t survive on the small amount of allowance his parents
gave him every month before he ran out. He felt guilty too, leeching off his
parents especially at the age that he was.
So he did the logical thing and soon acquired
a part-time job as a cashier at the campus’ coffee shop. And that was great,
absolutely wonderful, all he had to do was work for a bit, get paid for it,
then head off to his dorms to study.
Pretty busy life, but he was
earning and paying off his debts.
Now if only he could stop the
feeling of dread whenever he was going into work.
His time as a coffee shop cashier
initially had been pretty mundane, come in, man the register and sometimes load
up a cup full of whatever sugary Christmas delight an over-worked student
wanted and repeat this procedure until closing time.
That was until a fellow dorm-mate
joined the crew as a barista. Liam Payne.
The bane of his existence. Louis only rolled his eyes at Zayn whenever he
spat out Liam’s name, Harry only flashed him a charming but sympathetic
dimple-filled smile while Niall only cackled loudly. Now that he thought about
it, Niall always cackled loudly at everything.
But there was a sad truth to his
hatred, he was actually in love with him.
Oh man……. This episode had me feeling some kind of way…. Now don’t get me wrong! I love Reiner and Bertholdt. I truly do! Even more so than Eren and Armin. I feel the same over Annie and Mikasa too! But back to my point…. Seeing Reiner break down and go through a panic attack of sorts….. Made me hurt for him so much more! Omg….. I really am afraid of (manga) Reiner from here on out, because that man’s emotions and mentality are only going to get WORSE! But if I’m being honest… I never realized how sociopathic and manipulative Bertholdt really is…. Trust me, this isn’t my first rodeo… At this time back in 2014, I already found out about all this back in the manga! But goodness gracious, actually watching it on tv and listening with my own ears…… The man truly had some mental control issues over Reiner! Don’t get me wrong….. I still ship them (I also ship Bertholdt and Annie too!) but I’m starting to wonder…. If that’s one of the reasons why Annie also kept her distance from those two? I mean I guess besides Mina and Hitch, she also confided a lot with Eren. Idk….. I’m getting all mixed up in my thoughts!!! I also can’t believe is will be one of the very last scenes we ever see Ymir again in…….. Fuck that makes me emotional! We all know what happens to her in the end……and…..I just…… It’s just not fair! Ymir reminds me a lot of Levi. Their stories are so parallel….. But I will elaborate more on that, next post!
1) ichi was sitting by himself and totty came to keep him company! 2) oso came over to a standing kara and they sat down like this together! 3) todo was by himself and jyushi scooted right up to him on his belly!
Okay HUGE A/N: OMGosh you don’t know how perfect this request is. So after i saw this in my inbox, i like went to this big carnival + international exhibition that happens in my city and took pics of carnival booths there to go with this post cause I thought it would be cute so ejincnewdnvjebnweiuhvnoweb im so ExCiTeD to write this. And this may or may not be super long. I apologise if it sucks but thanks for requesting hun ♥‿♥
(so fyi two carnival shots below are mine :D)
You tugged at you friend’s hand hurriedly across the entrance gate. You were so excited to spend some time at your local carnival today. Though carnivals don’t seem like a big deal, this one was. Vendors and stores all over town set up booths, there were countless rides and your favourite part, a midway with several booth games. You were quite the competitive girl, so of course anything game related caught your eye. So as you were walking through the crowd, a red headed boy with cat face paint on his face caught your attention. “Give a hand at the ring toss folks, get a ring on any bottle and win a prize!” he called out with a cute smile.
“Hey, can I try that?” you questioned your friend.
“Seriously Y/N, those games are just cunning ploys to get your money.”
“Ah Please!!! I’ll die if I don’t try it. PWEASE!!!!”
You squealed in delight and pulled her towards the booth. You ever so willingly handed over your money to the boy at the booth. “Is the young lady confident that she’ll win?” he questioned, his eyes sparkling. Either he was really passionate about running a game booth or super sweet, you couldn’t tell. “I am, I never give up!” He laughed and handed you your rings “Good luck!”. Three tries… and three fails.
“Ah man c’mon!” you flapped you hands around in misery.
“Told you this was a waste of money”
“You were really close the last time, I thought you almost got it” the booth boy offered.
You were about to go again when your friend dragged you away before you could protest. Though the rides were amazing, a certain prize and red head were on your mind for the rest of the day.
You tiptoed over to the booth and tugged at the sleeve of the red head, who had his back towards you. He turned around and a flash of surprise crossed his face.
“You came back!” and that was when you noticed his snaggletooth smile for the first time.
“I couldn’t help myself. I have my eye on a certain prize” You pointed up towards the large Squirtle plushy that was hanging over your head.
“He’s so cute! He was worth another visit!” Inside you knew you meant both Squirtle and Snaggletooth, but of course you wouldn’t admit that out loud.
He laughed and leaned closer. “Well, miss-”
“Y/N… Y/N + your last name”
“Ah yes, Miss Y/N. I’m really glad you came back today. And I’m Woojin by the way, Park Woojin.” If you weren’t wrong, his cheeks were staring to flush a rosy pink.
You grinned and handed him your money. And the grand result… three fails again.
“WTF, you’ve got to be kidding me!?”
He giggled at your profanity but immediately composed himself.
“You know, I would just give it to you if I could but-”
You shook your hand “Don’t worry. I know you can’t do that. I guess I’m just really unlucky”. Then you trudged away sadly, distracted by your failure to see his pouty expression at the sight of you leaving.
He watched you amused as you tied your hair back and rolled up your sleeves, glaring down at the menacing bottles that were lined up before you, their necks poised up in the air so proudly.
“Wow Y/N. I swear I see fire in your eyes. Nice, burning passion”
You smirked “I’ve got this Woojin. I have the perfect strategy. If I aim for those bottles in the corner at a 55 degree angle, that damn adorable Squirtle is mine! Muhaha!”.
He just laughed and handed you your rings. “I’m praying for you Y/N. May the Squirtle be yours!”
Your first shot was actually quite horrible. It hit the edge of the booth, and tumbled to the floor. He winced but gave you an encouraging smile. Your second one was a bit better, it hit one of the bottles at least. You huffed and carefully aimed the last one. It caught on to one of the bottles and twirled around. You two looked at each other with excited expressions as this one truly seemed like a winner. But then it tumbled off and gracefully flew away across the booth. Both of your jaws dropped to the floor.
“Like wth? I know I run this game, but I think these bottles are rigged” Woojin scowled.
You sighed heavily and looked at him with a sad smile “It’s okay Woojin. I’m just super unlucky. Ughhh forget it! Later, I’ll see you around” You ignored his calls, and left the booth quickly.
You were embarrassed that he had to see you fail so many times. He probably thought you were an idiot. You plopped down on a bench with a bag of cotton candy, and started stuffing your sorrows away. After awhile of replaying the miserable game attempts in your head, you got up to head home.
“Y/N!!! Wait!” you stopped and turned around to see a breathless Woojin, the Squirtle plushy in his hand.
“Oh? Woojin! What’s this?”
“Here, this is for you” he huffed, handing you the plushy. You immediately wrapped your arms around the soft toy tightly.
“But I thought you couldn’t just give it to me?”
“No, I played for it. Three times just like you. But I won on the last one” He smiled.
You felt your cheeks heating up as you made eye contact with him. Not only was he cute, but so sweet and considerate as well.
“Thank you Woojin! You didn’t have to…”
“I wanted to. Really!” he looked a little nervous now “So… I don’t know if this is too soon. I mean I’ve only known you for 3 days, but uh … I have a day off tomorrow and um maybe we could meet here. I could teach you, the tricks to winning carnival games.”
You ignored your inner soul scream in delight and tried to stay calm.
“Are- are you asking m-me on a a date?” You failed at the calm part.
He flashed a shy snaggletooth smile “Yeah…I guess I am”
You smiled and nodded your head quickly “Sure. I’d like that, alot.”
And that was when 3 Days of Carnival became 4. But the last day was filled with winning lots of Pokemon plushies, laughter and sweet loving gazes.
Best scene ever when Quinn takes charge in the ops room when Saul calls in after escaping. But I am curious to know why the writers chose to have Carrie walk into the ops room in her pj's, but had Quinn change into a shirt. Am I overthinking this? As small a detail as it is, I think it makes perfect sense for each character. Did I just answer my own question?
Yeah, I’d say you answered your own question. Carrie doesn’t care all that much about decorum (I mean she’s late for a CIA meeting after a one night stand in the pilot) unless she needs/wants something.
Quinn always had a strong sense of chivalry and formality….
Button-down vs PJs:
Washing dishes (omg, I’ll never get over the tie tucked in):
Showing up (early):
And y’know damned well he’d have been able to fix the fucking wifi (true love):
I submitted that story time! and Yes, I gladly do have an update on what happened, I read all of the advice and took my time and did a lot of thinking and I’m trying my best to stay calm and avoid writing in all caps!!!!
OK, So after I sent that submission, I decided to take your advice, kmusicandblackwomen! I also asked my friend and she LOVED the idea! So I wrote him a long letter, I didn’t expect to make it that long, but I threw in some jokes, to not make it weird. And the letter was basically me confessing how much I like him and that I’ve had a crush on him for over a year and that he gives me butterflies. I also told him how, as weird as it sounds he made me happy! and that every time I saw him walk in that door, he made my day better! And I was like, Man, I hope you’re single, if not pretend you never read this letter!
Even though we talk on the phone some times (mostly text), I couldn’t find the courage to tell him on the phone or to his face, that gave me anxiety thinking about it and I didn’t want to play the “make him wait/play hard to get” game! I was scared some other girl would sweep him off his feet, so I have courage enough to finally take it to the next level and confess, even though I think it’s quite obvious to him I like him. And from all the staring and flirting he gives me, I think it’s quite obvious he likes me too….at least I HOPE!
am i the only one absolutely, completely and utterly heartbroken over the deaths of the suriel, the weaver and the bone carver?¿? please tell me i’m not!! (bryaxis is adorable psh he just wants company) they were such interesting characters that were more than the myth that was built upon their lives !
and this book had such realistic character arcs omg especially how tamlin never did completely get over feyre and her betrayal, how long nesta and elain took to recover from their experience, how there was always a price to pay for everything. and don’t even get me started on the amazing female! support! and! female! friendships! and strong female characters!!!!
although i did think it took a teeny bit too long to build up to the climax where they kind of rushed all the events at once aka my heart got steamed over by a roller coaster ;-;
also i understand this book might not be everyone’s cup of tea but the hate towards it is kind of over the top?
