So sad that MX didn't win today... but it just makes me want to try harder but I'm so confused with the voting system/ schedule. Could you please tell me in order what i need to vote on and what I need to stream for each certain music show? does that make sense? :( sorry for the bother!

You can check how every music show and voting period works here.
Out of the music shows international fans can vote for, you only have Show Champion and MCountdown (since Monsta X don’t promote in The Show).
You can vote for Show Champion from Tuesday to Sunday, as explained here.
As for MCountdown, you can vote from Friday to Monday, as explained here.

Please keep in mind voting represents a really small percentage of the final result and that streaming (if you can) should be your priority!

Sweet Dreams

“Sweet Dreams!” Was snarled as the bedroom door slammed shut before Marcus could even get close to it.

“Oliver you can’t be-” The door being ripped open had Marcus snapping his mouth shut almost hopefully before a heavy blanket wrapped around his pillow got pelted at his face.

The oomph of it socking him back was muted with his stumble backward.

“Oli-” “I already said Sweet dreams go sleep on the couch Marcus!”

Hugging the blanket and pillow to his face then and Marcus let out a vicious scream of frustration. Whatever good mood he would have had from winning his match today cast aside because his prick of a fiance was bitter over losing.

‘Thirty points and he takes it out on me. See if I care I picked out the damn couch for this specific reason.’ He thought to himself before throwing the blanket and pillow down. Following suit shortly after and he just stared at the ceiling with a scowl.

The Modern Goddess

Aphrodite walks down the street, an unassuming young woman. She watches the men who follow women around, clawing at their hair, their clothes. She curses them on a watery tongue. They will drown on their own words tonight. 

Athena is at war in the senate seat, the streets, in her own head. She’s a strategist, a wise, nasty woman. She stands for the people who are thrown to the wolves, and gives them a sword so they can be the heroes she knows them to be. 

Artemis hunts down the abusers, the takers, the grim reapers. She shoots arrows of truth and revolution into the hearts of survivors. She is always just ahead in the tree line, crying for you to be free. 

Hera is the school teacher, the grandmother, a victim who notices your wounds and stays with you. She is a mother, firm grip on your shoulder as you stand up against violence, against anything bad for you. You will win today, you have no other choice. She looks at you and survival is etched in her face. 

Hecate is the friend that tells you to leave the asshole, who is a bodyguard, who threatens their tongues with their wrath. She cannot be moved, grounded in the earth. 

Hestia is a social worker who takes in runaways. She holds picket signs and feeds those who would not be fed. Who makes homes for the lost, the aged, the sick. She sees their strength and their trial by fire. She rewards them for their triumph up to this point.

Persephone knows how to fight for her love, how to break your mother’s heart for knowing who you are and what you want, realizing that was not what your family wanted. She waves pride flags, she sips wine at gay bars.

Win Your Heart

So, today was a snow day and I was able to work on Fragile Design, including ironing out some tricky plot points (thanks to @optomisticgirl for her wonderful thoughts and encouragement).  Now, I’m sitting here and thinking as my husband makes dinner (yes, I’m a lucky girl) and I need to write something short and sweet and involving no major plot other than references to potential impending storylines to come.

(also I’ve spent the past week re-immersing myself in @msgenevieve447‘s writing and loving every minute of it…this is an ode to her as well because she’s one of the people in this fandom than inspired me to write and I owe her much for that)

This little drabble is based on one of my all time favorite Captain Swan conversations, a piece of which is below:

Ah, yes…under the cut, for smutty reasons (you know how I do)…
