Important Question: Can We Smooch Our Way Out of This?

Is Savioritis a literal curse, or just a side-effect of Savior-ing? Because if it’s a literal curse we can TLK our way out of it, no? That would have Emma live and keep her power– although her absence would have to be explained in the “reset” if JMo does not renew her contract.

Everyone holding hands saved Robin from the Soul-sucking Wraith– maybe Emma’s entire family including Hook smooching her on the head can save her from Savioritis?

my girl, linen and curls…
lips parted like a flag all unfurled,
she’s grand, the bend of her hand
digging deep into the sweep of the sand.

The princess had always harbored a fierce longing for the sea, as if it were an unattainable suitor; a bold, fickle thing that ebbed and flowed against the jagged rocks beneath her window. On the edges of the stone sill were thick, crystalline layers of salt. As a girl, she had developed the somewhat ill-advised habit of swiping a pink, wet fingertip along the edge and bringing it to her lips in order to catch a taste.

Her pirate’s lips were always sharp, and bitter, and tasted vaguely of blood and seawater. A far cry from the stone dry saltiness of her long forgotten tower. Her family would call it a kidnapping, but she was too smart for that; too strong, too willful—not enough caution. She had wanted to escape, and there she had been, ripe for the picking. The pirate captain with the long, thick dark hair. The pirate captain and the pirate ship with all that deep, dark oak—the heavy, aged sails that they rode into every storm they could find. She had been born a princess, but the rough, unforgivable waves of the ocean had crowned her anew. A pirate’s life for me.

An OG gift for the princess to my pirate, @captainwiley. xo

Is it possible for BTS to someday reach the level of popularity and status that groups like BigBang enjoy? What would the members and the company have to do to reach that level?

Not only is it possible, but all indications show that they’re well on their way to the top of the top.

For a while there were some minor concerns that BTS were struggling to connect with their domestic audience. They were considered “global” stars first, which is all well and good, but idols can’t really survive without home-ground interest and support. But the Wings album and YNWA has proven that BTS are a juggernaut both in Korea and overseas.

I have never seen a boy band outside of the Big 3 companies to become so huge and so loved in such a short amount of time. They are growing exponentially as they continue to sweep the charts, break records, freeze servers, and make more fans with each new comeback. It’s almost surreal how it’s all unfolding for them. But seriously, they’re legends in the making.

Sorry to say this, but Kelly Slater and other surfers saying that sharks should be culled in big numbers are in the wrong. In the last 10 years 80 people have been killed by sharks. That’s not a huge imbalance or a big threat. There are areas where a handful attacks by sharks on humans happen every year and people are warned to not enter these waters. (The area which Kelly Slater talks about apparently saw 20 attacks since 2011, 8 of them deadly.) Yet that is still such a small number, compared to real common threats. More people get killed by dogs every single year. (Apparently 25.000 a year.) No one asks that all dogs should be killed. And are surfers forgetting that the ocean is the natural environment of sharks and NOT of humans?

You are entering the natural habitat of a dangerous (because of its anatomy, not because it loves to attack humans) animal, that can kill you if it mistakenly attacks you, and then you call for it to be extinct, so you can have some fun. That’s pretty ironic…
