only did some songs too sorry


So, I went to see Musical Touken Ranbyu today and..Holy shit it was awesome!

Just really, loved the story, loves the cast, loved the songs. The only complaint I have would be the technical issue where I felt that the sound speakers weren’t able to handle the loudness of the music and messed up the awesomeness of the songs sometimes, which I felt was honestly a shame, because they did really well on the singing. (Also, I think the music was a little too loud sometimes, as you could barely hear the actors sing.)

Until I picked up my tickets at the theater I had no clue where I’d be seated, so I feared the worst, but… I had some really nice seat. 15th row, 18th seat. Which not too far from the stage, and right in the middle of the theater at the aisle! 

More impressions and a short summery under the cut… 
(Read at your own risk! May contain spoilers! I’ll try to keep it cryptic though.)

thoughts of a little starlight

VIXX are underrated.

I say this because even though this is their fourth year as a group, even though they’ve won awards before and did quite well despite coming from a small company… I think that’s still the truth. Sorry for the rant, it’s gonna be long…

Now that Conception: Project Ker is ending, it’s easy to see just how underrated they actually are. 

First of all, Dynamite was great. However, it disappointed some people because it was a bright, funky song and video. Only because those people didn’t understand the lyrics or the concept well enough to care I suppose… Amongst other reasons that might be too harsh for me to say right now. Dynamite did bring a lot of new fans as well, but some fans seemed to lose interest. 

Second was Fantasy. This song could have broken a bunch of Kpop stereotypes, it’s literally on the scale of a large movie soundtrack. Yet somehow it took so long to reach the viewcount goals, even if it had to do with Youtube glitches. Once again it brought new fans in, but… I kept wishing we could have given them more wins. Of course, this had to do with the way it was released as well… however I don’t want to blame Jellyfish for doing it for the K-Starlights. I’m super grateful of how this company is so considerate. 

Now we had The Closer. The supposed ending of Conception, and it was full of nothing but surprises and showed how much improvement and skill the boys had accumulated in this one year. However this song was their least successful out of all three releases. Why? Is it because it wasn’t promoted enough? Because fans didn’t like it again? I’m honestly saying that I think Kratos is one of the best mini-albums this year, but I suppose that isn’t really enough. 

Musically, VIXX have never disappointed me. Performance-wise, they have never disappointed me either. Their music videos are all top quality, their content for fans always thoughtful and full of genuine gratitude for us. Their fanservice is incredible, their relationships with Starlights endearing. K-netizens have even pointed that out, how envious they were of VIXX’s Starlights.

Yet… why is it that VIXX are somehow mistreated on broadcasts, music shows… Is it only because they’re from a smaller company? The boys themselves are the nicest people, they’re all talented and hardworking and quite kind. They’ve never even had actual scandals or controversies, and if they have it was never caused directly by the boys themselves. Some people say they are problematic, however that is really not the case at all. They have never belittled or insulted anyone outside of their own group, not that we know of anyway, but they do not seem like people who would. They’re so supportive of their fans, they even try to help Starlights out, they feed them and keep them warm during cold days, they talk to them and listen to their worries sometimes. It seems like VIXX never really think for themselves. 

Kim Wonshik seemed to have worried enough about something to write in the fancafe. Today’s live stage was not only cut short once again, but Lee Jaehwan looked close to tears at the very end. It’s true that VIXX are somehow mistreated, and I don’t know why. If there are fans of other groups from smaller companies that have also been treated like so, then I’d like you to know that I also feel that frustration. At times like this, I don’t think fandoms should be causing wars or arguing against each other, arguing about which group deserves what. They all deserve much more sometimes, and fandoms could really stand together in peace while supporting their own bias group as well as helping each other out if possible. That’s what would be best. 

I’d like to end this on a more positive note; Underrated groups may still come out on top in the end. For some groups, their downfall is their fandom and their fame. I’d like to think if that group rises slowly, then they will stay at the top for a much longer time. 

I’m just really concerned because of how much it seems to be affecting VIXX lately. They all look more stressed, more tired. This year they had three comebacks, and they’re about to have a fourth tomorrow. 

Milky Way… It’s a song for Starlights, isn’t it? Together we make the Milky Way. They’re letting us know that together, we’re not only beautiful but always there for each other. Okay this turning a bit too gay. But y’all get my point. I wish that VIXX will never forget that the amount of wins does not equal their value. The fandom is growing, but still small. 

Fellow Starlights, thank you all for sticking by their sides. I really love this group and this fandom. 

Friends - Bechloe Fanfic

Chapter: 1/?


Inspired by what I imagine/wish happens in scenes that we don’t see in Pitch Perfect 2, slightly alternate storylines perhaps. Also inspired by the song Friends by Ed Sheeran

‘You’re making me sexually confused.’

Beca had failed multiple times at intimidating their opposition, but that one line specifically hung around in Chloe’s mind for the rest of that day. She wasn’t really sure why. It was almost like having a song stuck in her head.

All the way home from the riff off house she would just randomly hear Beca’s voice saying it again.

She caught herself staring at Beca a few times when this happened. Something about it was odd, maybe just because it didn’t seem like something Beca would say. Maybe it was something else though.
