I have an idea/question, because I’ve seen Elriel lots on my dash and it got me thinking (and because I am tired as shit of couples everywhere): I want Elain and Lucien to be mates but of the best friend quality.
First, because what Lucien needs is a friend, he needs to learn what friendship means before throwing him into a relationship and Elain needs a break to rationalize what the fuck happened but mostLY MY SMOL GINGER ONE NEEDS A PROPER BFF.
So omg can’t you imagine Elain braiding Lucien’s hair while she talks to him of Azriel and Lucien is like first world shipper of them and goes “omg woman just kiss him.” Lucien using his cunning little head to set them up. Lucien and Cassian being bros and shipping elriel like mad. Lucien getting excited when he sees shadows because “omg he is here my ship is sailing.”. Lucien using court politics to bring Elain to the Night Court and when she talks to him about it he is there checking his hair for split ends being the suavest wingman going “I have no idea what you are talking about”
also excuse you but lUCIeN AND TARQUIN EVERYONE????
Sucks for you, my ship is sailed by the best damn reaver on the Iron Islands and it's carrying the Mother of Dragons. My ship will burn all your ships to ash! Tell the Drowned God I said hi motherfucker! Long live the queens!
helloooo~ anon, thank you for stopping by. I think I understand what you were saying, but I’m not sure if you misunderstood me?
Jungkook closed his eyes leaning on Jimin’s shoulder is like it’s his most peaceful place in the world and he could forget about his surrounding just for a little bit
This part over here is what I think about the moment and yes, I agree with you that I tend to find every rational explanation out there possible whenever I see a Jikook/Kookmin moment too. And as you did, it was a special moment in my eyes too, as I quoted myself above. The thing is, my point when I told you about what my friend said is to state that even though it’s so obvious to me, even though I thought that when people looked at that exact moment they would feel the same, there was still my friend who didn’t have any of it, and took it another way which I had no idea how. That’s why I said I’m like TT. I also told her that Jimin’s hand blocked Jungkook’s face, he couldn’t even be seen on camera, what’s the point of posing that way? And she just said maybe it’s the angle… What could I say more?
So yeah, again, my point is that, there’ll always be people who look at things differently, even tho it’s so obvious to us, and there’s nothing we can really do about it, since it’s their own perspective. (I never talk to her about Jikook/Kookmin again because I know she won’t understand and perceive their moments). So what we can try to do is to accept it, and move on, instead of questioning why, which doesn’t result in anything. That’s what I think when I saw many shippers kept asking “Jikook/Kookmin is so real how can people ship *other ship*?” over and over again. I just hope we can sail our ship without involving other ships so much or start bashing shippers of other ships. Of course, no one has to agree with me, since I said everyone had their own perspective. It’s just a suggestion, not a must.
And no, please don’t be worried, you’re not rude at all, thank you for kindly explaining your view to me. Let’s just hope my friend won’t see this, she would question why she is being involved in a ship discussion xD. Thank you for loving my blog too, I hope I don’t disappoint you too much :-)
hi anon~, thank you for sending me an ask. I actually saw that moment, but it didn’t really leave any strong impression on me. I had to go and see it again to make sure if there was actually something in order to answer you, but I still don’t see anything? Basically there’s nothing to comment from my side.
If you actually wanna know how I see it, then… BTS members are very close, it’s nothing unusual for them to hug and cuddle. Especially V and Jungkook are known to be very close as well. This might be offensive to some shippers, but some people said that Taehyung didn’t even know who was sleeping beside him but still naturally cuddled/hugged back, since he asked Jungkook “Why are you here?” after he woke up. So it could be any member, and the same thing would happen. If you wanna focus on why Jungkook initiated it, Taehyung is his hyung, they skinship all the time (hold hands, put arms around the other’s shoulder etc.). Jungkook does it with other members too. If you see it from a Jikook/Kookmin shipper’s perspective, just because Jungkook and Jimin have something special (yeah love) going on between them doesn’t mean he has to restrict himself from being intimate with other members, since they’re all his hyungs. The same goes for Jimin. Hobi and Jimin can be very intimate at times. But that has nothing to do with our main characters, Jimin and Jungkook’s relationship, at least for me. What makes their relationship special isn’t just skinship, but their facial expressions, how they act around each other, everything.
And this is gonna be offensive too, but it’s my own opinion. Let’s say, if Jimin were in Taehyung’s place, would you think we will get to see that footage? Never, ever. It’s there for us to see because there’s actually nothing out of ordinary, nothing too special, it’s just one day within their daily life. If there’s actually something, Big Hit won’t release it. There have been multiple examples where Jikook/Kookmin moments got cut. It’s not like they lack of footage. Sure Bon Voyage was sponsored by Vlive and Naver, but Big Hit had the right to review everything before the actual thing was published, I believe. And if I recall right, the recent moments of Jikook/Kookmin being closed, having intimate skinship etc. were filmed by the media (mostly them not being in the center of attention tho), not Big Hit. We still got to see Jungkook piggybacked Jimin in videos released by Big Hit, so I have no complain tbh. It’s our shippers’ job to find their moments on our own anyway xD. I’m content and happy with what we’re given. So again, my point is, they cuddle each other is not big of a deal. It can happen between any member of BTS, they’re as close as brothers.
Whenever I see moment like this particular one you asked about, my reaction is not “omg what about my ship? oh no my ship is not sailing, Jungkook doesn’t love Jimin anymore” or anything of that sort. My thought is gonna be like “oh my here we go again, some shippers are gonna be at it again, shipwar can happen again” etc., or more like my fear (I’m not targeting you for this, anon, please don’t misunderstand me, I’m talking about it in general). But for my part, I always enjoy seeing any of them being close, knowing that they have each other no matter where and when, things like that. I hope you don’t think too much about this if you’re a Jikook/Kookmin shipper. Instead, you can fangirl/fanboy with me about Jungkook saying “I’ll sleep over there with Jimin hyung” when they were figuring out where to sleep when they 1st got in that camping car xD.
Thank you for reading this. I hope this can somehow answer your question. But also, I don’t wanna involve other members too much in our ship, so I hope we can somehow be chill about other ships’ moments.
