Your eyes fluttered open to the sound of talking. It was muffled, coming from the living room, but you could clearly make out the stern and exasperated voice.

“Give her a few days to adjust- she’s exhausted and in a huge amount of pain. Then, I will give her your number.”

It was silent for a moment as you lifted your right hand to rub your tired eyes. The smell of coffee filled the hallway, giving you a certain level of inexplicable comfort and the knowledge of the time of day. Your heel paused in the crease as you heard Bucky’s voice lower to an unimaginable tone. “You don’t want to press me on this.”

The sound send a shiver down your spine, one that made you antsy enough to squirm a bit. You attempted to raise up into a slight sitting position so you could hear his conversation better, but the tiniest of movement sent a sharp pain shooting through your entire side and abdomen. Despite biting your lip to keep any noises from escaping, a cross between a whimper and yell snuck out and, within a moment, Bucky was rushing into the room, fingers carelessly hitting the end button on his phone and pocketing the device.

“What happened? Are you okay?”

You blinked back the tears in your eyes, hand hovering over the tender area near your ribs. “Will you help me sit up?”

His worried eyes didn’t let up as his hands reached out to slide gently under your lower back and the crease behind your knees. His touch was soft, and his voice seemed to mimic that same warmth. “You’ve got to be careful, Doll.”

Doll. You might have felt the butterflies in your stomach if you weren’t so nauseous from the pain medication. He had never called you anything but your name and “Fighter.”

“Who were you talking to?” You mumbled once he had rested you up against the pillows.

“No one important. How are you feeling? You’re due for more of your medicine.”

“Could I have it?” You swallowed down the feeling of neediness, knowing he was going to be doting on you for two whole weeks, and the both of you would have to get used to it.

“’Course,” he reached for the bottle on the bedside table to the right of you, pouring until a large pill fell into his hand. You took it from him, placing it into your mouth and reaching for the glass of water he was handing to you.

He set the glass back onto the table when you were finished, gently sitting on the empty mattress space next to you. “Natasha and Steve came to see you while you were sleeping. They brought food for you if you are hungry. You should probably eat something so your stomach doesn’t get upset from the painkiller.”

You shook your head instantly, groaning out at the mention of food. You had been nauseous during your whole stay in the hospital, the operation and painkillers making you want to barf into the nearest bucket at all times.

Bucky’s eyebrows furrowed in concern. “I could make you a smoothie? You could sip on it?”

When you only continued to look at him warily, he sighed. You could almost see the self-doubt run across his features as he questioned if he were the best person to take care of you. Both of you knew he was the best to keep you safe, no doubt, but for the rest…

“Do you have peanut butter?”

He looked confused as he searched your eyes, but nodded nonetheless.

“Could you make me a peanut butter banana smoothie? The protein in it would probably help too.”

The hidden reassurance in your words seemed to work magic as his eyes lit up again. He nodded hastily, standing and wiping his palms on his sweats. “Yeah, yeah, I’ll make it right now.”

“Wait!” You called as he went to leave for the kitchen, nodding toward the television in front of where you were laying in his bed. “Could you turn something on for me?”

And that was how you ended up sipping on a peanut putter banana smoothie, watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Bucky sat next to you, above the covers despite you being covered by the sheets from your waist down. You both leaned against the pillows, legs straightened in front of you, watching the television contently.

He chuckled at the parts you laughed, but the reaction was directed more toward you than the actual show. The questions he asked sounded even more ridiculous than what was happening on screen, but you enjoyed when he had one because it was always veiled in a comedic snark that left you giggling into your drink.

“I want to be like Lisa Vanderpump one day.”

“Me too,” you agreed, even though you knew he was kidding. “I have some heels you can borrow for a start.”

His eyebrows raised, tilting his head toward you as he spoke in a teasing voice, his eyes never leaving the television screen. “They’d have to be pink.”

“Of course.”

Silence erupted as the two of you watched the families interact on screen.

“Do you have any siblings?” Bucky asked, and you knew he had to be curious from the lack of people who had been concerned for your wellbeing both before and after the car wreck.

“Nope… Well, not any that I know of. I was put up for adoption.”

You hoped your nonchalant voice kept him from looking too deep into the topic, but as his head turned and his eyes focused on you, you knew you had gained his complete attention. “What was that like growing up? Having a foster family, I mean.”

The awkwardness was almost palpable, but you knew he was asking innocent questions. He wanted to learn about you. “I, uh, had many actually. Kinda went from home to home until I turned eighteen.” You shrugged.

His voice was barely louder than a whisper, his eyebrows furrowed. “Then what?”

“Then I moved around by myself and ended up here, met Natasha, and… here we are.”

More silence.

“I’m so sorry.”

You shrugged again. “Don’t be. What about you? What’s your family like?”

He seemed to blink back into reality at the question, looking surprised for a moment before shaking his head and looking down to his lap. “We actually don’t talk much.”

You nodded, keeping your eyes on the show drama in front of you rather than push him for information he didn’t want to give out.

“Anyway, let’s switch to easier questions.” He sighed as he leaned back farther, his hands going to rest behind his head. “What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?”

“Vanilla.”

He side-eyed you. “No way vanilla is your favorite flavor.”

“It really is, I’m a simple girl.” You laughed, watching as he shook his head in mock disapproval.

“Shame. Rocky Road is by far the most superior.”

And then you really laughed, completely forgetting about the fact you were in a bed, and had been all day, due to your injuries. “Who even are you? We’re going to have to get two different cartons while I’m staying here then. I won’t eat that.”

“And who said I was getting us ice-cream?” He teased.

You didn’t answer because when you turned to shoot back a snarky response, you came within a couple of inches of his own face. Your eyes immediately landed on his lips, and you felt yourself subconsciously lick your own. His blue eyes were shining, seeming to light up in the dull room surrounding you. You could have stared into their glistening waters for hours. They drew you in like a riptide, and you were stuck, falling, leaning…

And crashing.

Quite literally. A giant crash from behind your back made you jump, breaking apart the minimal distance that had remained between you and Bucky. The sudden action made your whole body scream in pain, and you groaned out as you squeezed your eyes shut and leaned back into your pillows.

You felt the bed shift underneath you as Bucky got up, his soft voice turning extremely playful as you heard him cross the room. “There you are, Dex.”

Your eyes peeked open to see him scooping an orange Tabby into his arms, his free hand reaching out to pick the fallen lamp back up once the cat was situated. “Dex?”

“Yeah, like Dexter. Sam named him after the show.” He walked back to his previous spot on the bed, now with a purring cat.

“You have a cat… You do not seem like a cat person.”

“Have you seen this little guy?” He faced the cat toward you. “How could I not like him?”

The cat’s wide eyes met Bucky’s, and he let out a meow as if to tell Bucky it’s about time to put him down.

“You’d love having a pet. They’re the best.”

You choked out a laugh. “I can barely take care of myself, so I don’t think I’d be able to do that.”

He shrugged. “Animals help take care of you, in a way.”

The Tabby cat slid in between the leg space between your left and Bucky’s right thigh, spreading out and stretching until his long body was comfortable between both of you.

“See, he likes you too.”

His words reminded you of what he had said at the hospital. He had said that he knew you hated him, that he could live with that as long as you were alive.

“You know, you keep assuming how I’m feeling.”

“What do you mean?” He was distracted as he pet the content orange cat.

“I never said I liked the cat.”

He looked over at you, amusement in his eyes as his lips curled into a smile. “Don’t trie to lie, I see it all over your face. You like Dex.”

“What about when you said I hate you?”

Silence once again as he scrambled to respond in a way that didn’t come across as if he didn’t care. Because he definitely did. “You probably do after all that I’ve done, and I don’t blame you. I’d hate me too.”

“Oh, stop.” You rolled your eyes. “I don’t hate you.”

He met your gaze, but quickly averted his eyes to look anywhere but at you. “You don’t? And, uh, why is that?”

You pondered over the question. Why is that? Was it because of the way he looked at you even as you laid there both looking and feeling miserable in pain? Was it because of his ocean blue eyes or his dark chocolate locks that you so badly wanted to run your fingers through? Was it because of his protective instinct that taught others how to do the same? Was it because, as he watched Desperate Housewives, he laughed both with you and at you, and allowed you to have fun in a time you never thought you would? Was it because he had brought your first smile to yourself in a long time to you? Or was it just because your hearts beat in sync?

“Honestly?” You asked as you pushed all of those thoughts down. “I don’t think it’s possible to hate your soulmate. Everything in you will just bring you back to them anyway.”

He nodded, his mesmerized eyes taking you in as if he were looking at a long lost lover. “Right,” he choked out, his voice a mix between a low, raspy tone and a whisper. “There will always be that pull.”

It wasn’t just the pull and you both knew it. Neither of you went to correct it, though, as Bucky moved a piece of hair behind your ear, knuckles trailing along your cheek and jaw as his hand returned to his side. The pull was so much more. It was an incomplete feeling that had you itching to find the only piece that could fit to fill the empty spot inside of you. It was a physical need, a feeling you often felt when you weren’t around Bucky. You weren’t sure if the spot was filled when you were around him, but it was better than when you were not, and you would take that any day over nothing.

You looked up at him from your laying position to find him already watching you. He was blinking more than he normally would, eyebrows furrowed as his mind raced behind his eyes. Your heart faltered.

“Bucky? You okay?”

He looked to the bed sheets, his eyes moving back and forth in thought hesitation. And then he was moving quickly, his lips coming toward yours. You sucked in a breath, wanting this moment to happen so bad, but knowing the circumstances surrounding it. And it was as if he felt the same thing, because in the same second you lips were about to touch, he moved his course of action. His eyes searched yours and then he leaned up slightly and placed the most loving kiss onto your forehead that you felt your eyes drift closed at the feeling.

Butterflies erupted into your stomach as his cologne further invaded your senses, leaving a wonderful smell behind as he pulled away. Your eyes stayed closed and when you finally built up enough courage to open them, you found him exactly where you had left him. His right hand was casually stroking Dexter’s back and his eyes were glued onto the next episode of Real Housewives.

You forced the butterflies to leave your stomach as you looked back to the television again in silence, but you couldn’t fight the smile that involuntarily began to form.

  • Since it was the first thing he bought with his own money after receiving his paycheck from songs he had done demos for
  • While he plays for the band, he teaches drums to children at a nearby orphanage while juggling with his studies as a medical student
  • Has a fanclub who literally goes to watch him to perform so they admire his handsome profile while playing drums 
  • If only they can see the 4587 horrendous photos of Seongwoo he sends to his streaks on Snapchat 
  • His studies are pretty decent even when he is super busy all the time
  • Had the highest amount of votes for ‘Most likely to conquer the World’ for his college superlatives because he is literally everywhere ngl
  • Hands down won 'Most Handsome’ by a landslide 
  • He is the drummer but he gets a lot of singing lines because, for some ungodly reason, he can do both at the same time without breaking a sweat
  • hi where do I sign up to worship ong seongwoo
  • His drumsticks are really cute since it was the one he used since young so they still had those spongebob stickers he and Daniel had stuck when they were younger
  • Here’s the thing, you were Kang Daniel’s younger sister
  • You grew up seeing Seongwoo by your side since the day you came back from the hospital tbh
  • He had been there when you still had your braces and even time when you got them removed
  • Or witness your emo phase where you had those embarrassing bangs you proudly cut yourself and pretty much wore fishnet stockings along with you skull decorated converses everywhere
  • But you had been his #1 supporter from the start on his musical skills
  • Like you did listen to his playing with a serious expression and critique his performance later on
  • Daniel was done with the two of you
  • You always had a huge crush on him like whenever Daniel read you bedtime stories, you will be like 'seongwoo is my prince charming!!!!’
  • Daniel gets so flabbergasted when you see you want to marry him cause he’s like ‘no no Seongwoo is my bromate! You can’t have him!” (oneniel detected)
  • I mean have you seen him?? 7 years old Seongwoo is just as fine as he is now;;;;;;
  • Which lead to Seongwoo using that to tease you in middle school to give him your gummy bears
  • You did deny it, saying it was a silly turn but good lord, your crush grew bigger as he and your brother became more mature and started breaking hearts
  • The only thing you had against him was your height
  • Like you were the same height with him when you were 12 and he was 15
  • Whenever he goes 'Didn’t you used to like - ’ 'HI SHORTIE!’
  • It was in your family genes since Daniel was already one head taller than Seongwoo by then
  • But when you turned 13, you had moved to an all-girls boarding school as your mum had previously been an alumni and religiously believed that 'all-girls school is the best education for a young lady’.
  • You only dropped by home occasionally but you never really had the chance to see Seongwoo since he was always busy
  • Daniel did tell you that he had drums practice, theatre performance or even a football game
  • You only got updates through photos that you begged Daniel to send whenever he could
  • While you had gotten more mature and the crush on Seongwoo fizzled, you were just sort of interested in his well-being???
  • He was the like the ex you never had LOL
  • But also because you had 0 male interaction in your school so like technically the last person you ever had a crush on was still Seongwoo so you were sort of attached 
  • When you finally graduated high school and came back to your hometown to join the local college
  • You had been meeting with your few friends the last few day but Daniel wanted to introduce you to his bandmates that you had been hearing a lot of
  • You didn’t have a clue who played in it since he refused to share with you but their songs were very much to your liking
  • Especially that one voice who always sung the bridge
  • You dropped by the garage since Daniel wouldn’t be moving out until 3 months later when he graduated from university
  • Daniel greeted you with a laugh as he started showing you his member
  • Your jaw dropped when you saw the drummer fiddling with his drumsticks like he was rly CUTE,,,,,
  • Your brother introduced you to the rest of the bandmates but your eyes were pretty much set on the drummer
  • Let’s just say you had the shock of your life when you realized it was Seongwoo
  • But wow your heart literally skipped a beat when he pat your head and went all 'who’s the shorty now huh?’
  • Like it was supposed to be teasing but knowing he became taller than you just made you go ???? what is my heart doing
  • Photos really didn’t do him justice or maybe because Daniel is just bad at taking photos but Seongwoo literally looked amazing - just like before
  • Your heart accelerated when he moved in to give you a hug and whispered in your ear that he was glad to see you
  • The younger you would probably have thought he was in love with you but age can really change someone
  • Best friend’s little sister - that was all you were to him
  • College went on as usual and Seongwoo sometimes dropped by to have lunch with you since you took the same major unlike Daniel
  • You two definitely became closer as he also sort of tutored you when you needed help for your chemistry class
  • Close enough that you asked him what do you do when you were asked out by the cute guy in your physics class, Park Jihoon
  • In your mind, you were hoping that it would like one those sappy romcom where the male lead gets jealous and say something like don’t accept him and go to me instead
  • But this wasn’t a drama but reality instead
  • This time it really hit you that you needed to completely move on when Seongwoo was amused and asked you to accept him right away
  • So you did but you realized something was wrong
  • You didn’t feel anything with Jihoon
  • You did blush when he fed you but  it wasn’t like with Seongwoo where you felt your heartbeat skipping so fast and your stomach was doing summersaults
  • On the other hand, Seongwoo didn’t exactly know what the heck was going on with his feelings
  • When he saw you at the garage, no longer dressed in your brother’s hands me down and in something fitting and grey contacts on, his heart wasn’t listening to his mind
  • You were clearly his best friend’s sister so why was he reacting to you this way ???
  • He pushed it behind him, telling himself that there was definitely some sort of explanation for that
  • Maybe he just wasn’t feeling well that day or you know he just misses you,,,, 
  • As friends, that’s all, nothing more than that
  • You definetely weren’t good for his poor heart 
  • But he really didn’t know how he had become frozen in his seat and his head started spinning when you had told him your boy dilemma
  • He wanted to tell you to say no, to be with him instead yet his throat felt dry and something else had come out
  • Something a brother’s best friend should be saying instead
  • “Go for it! I will be there if you need more advice.”
  • It was a week later when Daniel had brought up the topic on you and Jihoon
  • Apparently, things were going pretty well with you two as you had already told your parents about it
  • But Seongwoo scoffs at the news, saying that you were most definitely going to get your heartbroken since jihoon was a fuckboy
  • Daniel was like, “why are you being so salty???”
  • “im nOT JUST STATING THE TRUTH.”
  • Daniel was like “yeah sure whatever you say bro” but it’s like the boys instinct or whatever, he knows that Seongwoo definitely had something on you
  • While you didn’t think you were 'in love’ with Park Jihoon, it still hurt when he had dumped you like Seongwoo had predicted
  • After all, he was your first boyfriend but Daniel was having none of it and make sure you didn’t spend your time moping around
  • He told you in order to recover from your heartbreak, you should learn a new skill and be productive
  • You thought it was pretty ridiculous but you comply since well, he was still your older brother
  • You were like 'oh i really want to learn a music instrument since young!’
  • Conveniently, Daniel has read an article 'somewhere’ that playing the drums really helps with heartbreak (can anyone sense the amount of sarcasm in this sentence)
  • Even better, Seongwoo was free to teach you in mastering the drums like wow such good timing amiright???
  • Even if Daniel placed the opportunity right in his hands, he still didn’t think it was right
  • He was extra careful around you and honestly, you made a really good student
  • You learned things really quickly and you made the effort to practice as much as you could afford to
  • But the atmosphere between you changed
  • You couldn’t get one technique so Seongwoo came over and place his arms around your back and settle his wrist on yours to guide you
  • You could hear his breathing and just the scent of his which smelled like peppermint and fresh laundry
  • You turned around and like your face is barely inches away from his
  • You noticed all the small things you had never seen before
  • Like the mole under his eyes, his sharp jawline along with his deep set of mesmerizing eyes
  • He backed off immediately and that was when you knew your answer
  • Two heartbreaks in a month wasn’t something you’d be proud of but what could you do about it?
  • Daniel didn’t know anything as he passed you tickets during dinner for the college festival his band will performing in two days
  • It will your first time seeing them live and while you wanted to be excited, you couldn’t help but think of Seongwoo
  • You had ruined a perfectly good friendship but you knew the tension you both had wasn’t going to go far,,, it had to end somewhere
  • Two days later, you were amongst the crowd but Daniel found you immediately and waved which you did the same
  • Seongwoo looked surprised at your presence as you noticed him whispering something to Daniel
  • You didn’t pay much attention but looked at the list of songs they were performing
  • Great! Your favourite song was on the list
  • The festival started and like everyone else, you immersed yourself in the music
  • When your favourite song started playing, something seemed to be calling out to you as you looked at the band
  • There was an uncomfortable thing tugging at your mind when your favourite line was coming up
  • That was when it happened
  • Seongwoo sung the lyrics of your favourite line
  • But this time, you locked gaze with him
  • It seemed like no one else was beside you as you two shared the moment of him seemingly dedicating that line to you
  • “When you love someone so much that it overflows. It’s so amazing because this is how it is.”
  • “You’re such a soft-hearted person. Every time you are silently in pain, even if I have to give my all, I want to make you smile again.”
  • As it moved on to the next person, he smiled at you and nodded
  • When it was time to see them backstage, rather than talking to Daniel, Seongwoo whisked you away to the empty waiting room
  • “When I was teaching you …. I wish I had pulled you in and do this.”
  • He leaned in and kissed you, taking your breath away
  • Soft lips pressed against yours for the first time and you leaned in
  • You moved his hands and placed it on your waist
  • You gasped when he tugs your lower lip with his teeth and you could feel him smirking
  • He continued kissing you as he picked you up by having your legs wrapped around his waist
  • Everything came to an end when there was a knock and you could hear Daniel shouting that the stage crew wanted everyone to leave in 5 minutes
  • He gently set you back on the couch and you giggled as you buried your head in his chest
  • It ended up with you having messy hair and his white buttoned up being wrinkled
  • But it didn’t matter anyways when you both laughed at each other
  • “Feelings mutual huh?”

anonymous asked:

Hi! Is it fine if you recommend any kdrama from this year? I already watched Goblin btw >_<

Hey there! I’m so sorry for the late reply. I’ve been so busy with college and post-graduation plans. D:

I would love to recommend 2017 kdramas for you. Here a few that I recommend and they’re not in any particular order. I’ve included a brief summary of the dramas that I absolutely recommend, to help give you an idea what the drama is about. I hope you find some to your liking! 

1. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

Originally posted by ohdongu

I really liked this drama! If you’re looking for a fun, quirky, and cute drama to pass your time – then this drama is perfect for that! It will not fail to make you laugh and smile. In general, I love Park Bo Young and she does an amazing job of playing Do Bong Soon. Plus, how can you pass up a drama with both Ji Soo and Park Hyung Sik as the male actors? This drama is about the heroine, Do Bong Soon, who’s born with awesome super strength that is passed down to the women in her family. On the other hand, Bong Soon wants to be an elegant and graceful woman, the ideal woman of her childhood crush In Guk Doo, unlike being unruly and brawn. Her dream is to create a video game with herself as the main character. She lands a job being the bodyguard of the CEO of a gaming company, Ahn Min Hyuk. However, one day, a series of kidnapping occur in Bong Soon’s neighborhood and she becomes determined to catch the culprit, with the help of Min Hyuk, after her friend was almost kidnapped.

2. Chicago Typewriter

Originally posted by dazzlingkai

I’ve recommended it before and I’m going to continue to recommend it because this drama highly deserves the praise. Lol… all I can say is that this drama is the definition of friendship, love, and loyalty. I freaking balled my eyes out, not because of the romance, but because of the friendship!!! This drama is about a writer who experiences a “slump” while writing his book, but two important people come into his life and help him write it… while also a bit of reincarnation and time traveling to the 1930s during the Japanese occupation in Korea. One thing that may tick you off a bit is the main guy’s temper, but after that… he’s an adorable cute floof ball entranced by love. 

3. Tomorrow With You

Originally posted by wonpilimiri

Though I never finished writing my review for this drama… I still recommend it because it has a really beautiful story. Plus, I love Shin Min A. The story is about a CEO of an estate company, Yoo So Joon, who can travel through time via riding the subway. He foresees his future self and a woman, Song Ma Rin, in a terrible accident. He decides to marry Ma Rin in order to avoid that fate. The drama is kinda slow, but the story is very well written and organized. 

4. Duel

Originally posted by kdramastuff

I’m still watching this drama, but damn is it good that it lands in my recommendation list for kdramas 2017. Probably one of the best crime and mystery dramas I’ve watched in a while! The story follows the Chief of the Crime Squad, Jang Deuk Cheon. His daughter is kidnapped and the suspect is a human clone. I haven’t seen the ending yet… but I totally recommend this drama if being on the edge of your seat and suspense is your cup of tea!

5. Queen of Mystery

Originally posted by alittledramas

Another great crime and mystery drama, “Queen of Mystery” is about a bored housewife, Yoo Seol Ok, who is passionate about solving crimes by reading mystery novels. She has always wanted to become a detective, but gave up on her dream and married her husband who is a prosecutor. But one day, she gets involved in a real case and solves it, which leads her to team with detective Ha Wan Seung. 

6. My Secret Romance

Originally posted by r-a-n-x-i-e

I have mixed feelings about this drama, lol. I enjoyed watching it, however, the main guy character’s supreme “male alpha-ness” was overbearing sometimes. Don’t get me wrong though, the main guy was really sweet; I’m a sucker for guys who “fall in love at first sight” and “head over heels” for the girl. Probably one of the best rom-com so far in 2017. The story is about a nutritionist, Lee Yoo Mi, and a director of an underwear company, Cha Jin Wook, who have a one-night stand that would change their lives forever. If you like cheesy and cute romance with the cliche drama, this is a funny drama to laugh about and pass time with a friend who is also a romantic. Lastly, the art is absolutely amazing (art goals T__T)!!! 

7. Hospital Ship

Originally posted by smittenskitten

This is the drama I’m currently watching… and I am absolutely obsessed about this drama (not only because I want to go to medical school >.>). I love the actors and actresses, but this is Min Hyuk’s FIRST LEAD ROLE!! Anyways, even if you’re not a fan of Min Hyuk, this drama is a little different from your typical drama, as it focuses more on the professional life of being a doctor. Other people have different opinions because they complain there’s not enough romance, which I argue because the romance is not the focal point of the story; it’s more about the stories of each character and their struggles in their professions. There’s actually romance, you just have to be patient. It follows a team of young doctors who travel on the hospital ship to treat patients. Particularly, a genius surgeon, Song Eun Jae, who is a strong and independent woman, joins the team after an incident at the Seoul hospital. There, she meets Kwak Hyun, a doctor of internal medicine, who is the son of the highly regarded physician known as the “Korean Schweitzer,” but he wants to become a good doctor different from his father. Overall, I think this drama is great so far with the character development, especially if you like dramas that portray a more realistic approach to the professions of the characters. This aspect is actually one thing that really annoys me sometimes in kdramas, they’ll throw in a medical profession for the main character just for convenience, but not accurately write out the profession (*coughs* The Bride of Habaek *coughs*). Please give this drama a chance, especially if you like good character development and awesome medical action! And it’s an added bonus if you love Min Hyuk and Ha Ji Won!!!! ^__^

8. Rebel: Thief of the People 

Originally posted by leejaeshins

Oh man, this drama is AWESOME! One of the best Hong Gil Dong storylines I’ve seen. Full of action, thriller scenes, and a kickass historical drama… Rebel is a must see… especially if you love historical dramas. The writing is spectacular and the characters are all well developed/written. Set during the reign of the tyrant King Yeonsangun, the story follows Hong Gil Dong who is the son of a servant who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. The story tells the journey of Hong Gil Dong becoming Joseon’s first revolutionary activist. There are 30 episodes, but trust me, you’ll wish it was longer. The plot is not your typical predictable historical dramas and will keep you on the edge of your seat. 

9. Tunnel

Originally posted by kdramastuff

This must be the year of crime and mystery kdramas!!! Tunnel is about a cop, Detective Park Gwang Ho, who enters a tunnel, in the year of 1986, chasing a killer and ends up time traveling thirty years into the future in the year of 2017. The serial killer has resumed his killings and it’s up to Gwang Ho, with Detective Kim Sun Jae and Professor of Criminal Psychology Shin Jae Yi, to catch this killer. Each episode always kept me at the edge of my seat begging for the next episode – really great and suspenseful cliffhangers!

  • My Only Love Song (Historical, comedy, romance): Watch this if you love Lee Jong Hyun and Gong Seung Yeon from “We Got Married”

“No!”

He’s laid in bed, sweat built at his forehead. (A boy with ebony hair, cold eyes grown warm.) He thrashes under the covers. (A comforting voice - “It’s going to be okay. I promise.”) He murmurs desperate pleas under his breath, a twisted knot between his brows. (BANG!)

Jungkook inhales sharply, his entire body jostling upwards. You react, switching on the lamp and sitting up. “Jungkook?” He’s gasping for breath, grabbing fistfuls of the covers, searching the premise with scared eyes. “Jungkook. I’m here.”

He finally looks at you and it takes a moment for him to ease. “I-I….I’m sorr-”

“Don’t apologize.” You put a comforting hand on his shoulder. “You don’t need to.”

He nods, a deep exhale later, he calms down. “Y/N. There’s something…I’ve forgotten.” Your breath hitches and you shut your eyes to prepare for his next words. “And now-”

“-I think I can remember.”

anonymous asked:

hi! Can u give me some cdrama recommendations? Preferably historical and/or fantasy lol thanks

I love you, Anon! 

All of these should be easily found with English subs, but if you are having trouble, message me. As you will see, I am fond of a decent amount of romance, and am a fangirl for some actors more than others. Plus, they are all (IMO) good entry points. I put in a MV for each.

Ice Fantasy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgQkBS36bAY

To watch if you like beautiful visuals (arguably most beautiful drama I’ve seen, design-wise), high fantasy, heroic quests, brotherly love, something that looks like a Tolkien AU, BAMF heroines, multiple romances, fairy tales.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXznlp7UhDg

To watch if you like female centric stories, messed up love stories, evil families, secondary guys who are unhealthy intense but magnetic, a lot of hurt/comfort, arc where heroine goes from disney princess to cynical BAMF.

Not to watch if you don’t like family intrigue, messed up male leads, crazy secondaries.

Return of  Condor Heroes 2006 version

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZywct2fBmI

Not to watch if you want some spectacular acting or deep plot.

The Myth

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZQ1f3j6K6A

To watch if you are like me and this is your number 1 drama ever. OK, seriously, if you like time travel, moral dilemmas, best hero ever, battles, tragedy, amazing character arcs. SERIOUSLY THE WAY EVERYONE ELSE FEELS ABOUT NIRVANA IN FIRE, I FEEL ABOUT THE MYTH. 

Not to watch if you don’t want to be an ugly sobbing wreck. OK, and also if you want romance be number 1 (it’s in there and awesome but secondary) and also I skipped the modern storyline so no idea if it’s good but the period part of the drama is THE BEST THING EVER EVER EVER EVER.

The Young Warriors/Young Warriors of the Yang Clan

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeRSXu1QE5c

To watch if you like battles, a super cool family of fighters with their own personalities and issues, many love stories.

Not to watch if you don’t like ugly hats, a little bit older dramas, and disgustingly thorough heart crushing.

Three Kingdoms (2010 version)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3RVpdYDpYA

To watch if you want a crazy smart political drama with complex characters, many battles, and political manipulation.

Not to watch if you don’t want a 90+ ep drama that spans a hundred years, has very few women and only one love story of note. 

Pls note I did not list any drama set in the 20th century as not sure if it qualified as historical under your standards. 

My Lovely Girl 

Truth be told, I only watched this drama because of Krystal. It was my second attempt to watch this drama successfully because at first it gave me a strange feeling on how the plot tangles the lives of the characters. Of all people, seriously? Why would you fall for your deceased sister’s boyfriend? I tried not to judge haha. 

It eventually gave me kilig but at some points, I wanted to cut off the second male lead syndrome because I shipped Sena to Shiwoo more than the lead character (sorry not sorry ✌🏼).

Also, it gave me hints on how agencies of kpop groups work behind the scenes. Too chaotic, dirty and ugly. It gives the reality of what they are in, in order to pursue their passion, they need to go through hell. 

It shows love knows no dark past, char the power of love.

7/10 for this series~

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

“Do you like Messi?” (Ronald is shookt)

Who does not love this drama? But this series being too viral on my Facebook timeline gave me headaches, the level of spoilers you get before actually watching that episode was too much. I hated it being on mainstream though, hahaha me being selfish. 

I love how well rounded this drama is: family, friends, school and dreams. The fact also that it has no major antagonist makes it stress-free! And the kilig factor is 10000000x that you will end up pausing the scene and might throw your gadget, kick the air, grab your hair and punch your pillow! TOO MUCH DIABETES HAHAHA! I ship Bokjoo and Joonhyung so hard, I am not even shookt that they are actually dating in real life! Bless bless the swag couple!

Everything is cute and happy. I love the ending and I could not imagine any better way of ending it. Definitely one of my favorites. 

GIVE ME A JOON HYUNG LOL!

9.99/10 for this series~

Strong Woman Do Bong Soo

After watching the WFKBJ, I thought it might be hard for me to enjoy another series. The standard is already up to the brim, it is hard to beat through time. But thank God for this. Can you see the similarity from the previous series? The complete name of the the female lead is included in the title!

I love Hyungsik since High Society and that is enough reason for me to finish this series since I do no dot well with genres such as supernatural, historical, etc. but the plot hooked me. It is too powerful it made me want not to end it.

It has also so many kilig moments. Park Hyungsik wants me dead! loljk. Thank God kdramas exist, I need no boyfriends! I seriously need them to date in real life because the bts of the scenes are just too qt and shy babies huhu! But, yes, they are just professionals who can carry well their respective characters. 

 Opposite with the previous series watched, this has soo many stressful events but that add up to the spices of the drama! I wanted to point out also how this drama reflects how strong a woman is, literally the title. We are not weak, submissive and inferior. We also have our own strong points in life. We know how to carry ourselves! (Who run the world?! G I R L S!!!) 

Definitely one of my favorites!

9.9/10 for this series

P.S I was able to see its album,in personal, for their official soundtracks and the album screams PINK huhu, too cute plus the photobook also is cute!

Uncontrollably Fond

Who even allowed this? This whole thing is super stressful! Literally, no happiness at all. It took me some months to finish this and was ran over by the news that Kim Woo Bin in real life is suffering from nasopharyngeal malignancy. The news blew up the whole world because it appears that Woo Bin is acting the same role again…

Everything here is complicated that some scenes still made no sense for me! Was I not able to grasp it right away? But I have two points for this series. 1) We live awefully to serve the justice we are thirsty for and it is even harder to quench that thirst if we have no connections and money to start with. 

Is justice really only readily available for the upper class? Sad, sad world

2) In the end, forgiveness is what you truly need to give, to dislodge the thorn being shoved in your throat for a long time to breathe freely. 

Things are bound to happen when it has to, it is fated. To suffer, be happy and finally come at peace~

ISTG I cried bucket of tears, it made me lonely. 

7/10 for this drama~

Doctor Crush

The fact that is medically related, okay go, give it a shot! But it also took me months before I was able to finish this series, like Uncontrollably Fond. Haha and that was my only drive to finish this series, m e d i c a l l y related!

Just like UF, it circles around being vengeful towards the people who wronged you and it only takes forgiveness to heal the wound stabbed long time ago. 

7/10 for this series~ 

Episode 89! Big drama, quick action, shit not sorted out!

Such quick action, actually, I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a long time, and recap a whole episode at once. BUCKLE UP!

Malik is being a total unreasonable emotionally-abusive foolish SHITHEAD right now. I am so disappointed in him. He stops Rishid from WINNING to tell him he has to take the massive risk of playing the Fake Ra card because Malik just sort of wants him to and, to make him do it, he dangles the one thing Rishid will carve his own face off for…

This is a LOW BLOW you lying little shit, go sit in the corner and sort your shit out.

Shortly thereafter:

“I am so aroused right now.”

This ridiculous Monster swap, trading Mr Scorpion for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Actually The Avatar Of A God, turns out to be even more pointless than you might expect:

ICBINTAOAG has the same ATK as Mr Scorpion did! It inherits the ATK of the Monsters sacrified to summon it (Mr Scorpion counted as three Monsters bc it had eaten three Monsters. Yes, I think that’s bullshit too, but on the scale of the bullshittitude perpetrated this episode, it barely registers.)

Malik is delighted.

I think it proves you’re a manipulative little dillweed, but hey, it’s nice to know Malik’s ravings support my theory that Rishid was some kind of nephew or something.

Meanwhile, in her room, Isis divines what is about to happen and mentally warns Rishid that he’s about to mistake. “Mentally” here meaning “in her own head”, not “telepathically”, sadly.

Well maybe show the hell up next time instead of sitting in your room by yourself watching through your haunted jewellery. Then you could have warned him for real and maybe he would have listened! Like seriously, Isis, sort your shit out.

But she isn’t there and Rishid calls his attack and Malik’s Duel Disk FREAKS THE FUCK OUT

Yes, incredibly, just like EVERY OTHER TIME THEY USED A FAKE RA CARD, they have angered the actual real God known as Ra who makes their displeasure known through the age-old tried-and-true Zeus-favoured method of Precision Lightning Headshots.

Boom.

… Awkward.

Seems a bit harsh to ALSO lightning Jounouchi, but in Ra’s defense, Jounouchi didn’t get hit until he approached Rishid.

Everyone freezes in shock, except Honda, who runs forward to climb onto the dueling platform (but does immediately stop when Isono asks him to, even though, for all he knows, his friend is dead or dying…)

(Yami’s ADORABLE shocked face distracted me for a while, but try to tear your eyes away to appreciate Otogi’s horror-blah too!)

Tournament Organiser, Tournament Sponsor Company CEO, and yet somehow also Competitor, Seto Kaiba, tells everyone not to worry!

… this STRONGLY implies that there IS a fatal level though. It is a CARD GAME DEVICE, Seto. Sort your SHIT out.

Isono wants to end the duel and disqualify both competitors for “being unconscious during the duel”, which does seem a little harsh but on the other hand has the massive benefit of freeing the unconscious duelists up for some highly necessary medical attention, but Kaiba Walking-Health-And-Safety-Disaster Seto has a better idea!

Literally, let’s stand here for five more minutes and see if either of them get better or die. These two people just got HIT BY FUCKIN LIGHTNING, this is NOT a suitable tie-breaker. It’s a goddamn CARD GAME, the secondary win-lose criteria should NEVER BE “well let’s see if the electrocution sends either of them into cardiac arrest”. SORT YOUR SHIT OUT, SETO.

… HOW does he EVER get insurance to cover ANYTHING??

The Nerd Herd start yelling at Jounouchi to wake up.

Except Yami who stares in consternation elsewhere? Apparently at Rishid? Maybe he’s in denial about Jounouchi potentially being seriously hurt?

Isis has another worry than merely losing a brother to godly-lightning-attack…

And Rishid is the one who keeps the other!Malik at bay, so if he’s killed in a tragic card-game accident…

This is where things kind of fall apart for me, suspense-wise. Like I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to be rooting for Jounouchi, and I certainly don’t want him to die or anything, but Rishid’s reasons for needing to get up and carry on are SO much better??? This isn’t Duelist Kingdom, where Jounouchi needed the prize money to save his sister’s eyesight. He’s literally in this tournament because he likes this dumb card game and it seemed like fun. He wants to do well and duel Yugi/Yami, but #spoileralert he ends up doing that after the tournament is over and that’s fine, so it’s totally not necessary for him to win here. He wants to get back up and continue the duel … so that he can duel his friend at some point. 

Rishid wants to get back up and continue the duel because he knows he’s the only one standing between Malik and the violent alternate-personality waiting to break free and use Malik’s body, and he’s haunted by memories of Malik’s descent into darkness after being tortured by his own father as a child, which Rishid couldn’t save him from.

Jounouchi’s electrocution-vision?

He literally dreams he dozed off in class, then falls over his desk and has a little chat with his friends.

He does have a sweet moment where he acknowledges that he no longer wants to be that rash, aggressive guy who gets into fist fights all the time, because…

He feels, in the dream, heavy and tired and asks for his friends to help him up…

<3! 

So friendship wins out over family and duty and Jounouchi stands up while Rishid falls. This fits with the “friendship heck yeah” theme of the series, but … idk. They explicitly framed this as “who is more determined to win this duel” and it reeeeeeally seems like it would be Mr If I Don’t Win My Precious Younger Brother Will Lose His Mind Maybe Forever and not Mr It’d Be Real Nice To Duel Yugi I Guess.

Anyway, it happens and Jounouchi’s up, but kinda dazed and not sure where he is.

HE GOT HIT BY FUCKING LIGHTNING LIKE FOUR MINUTES AGO, LADY, WHAT THE FRESH HELL, MAYBE SORT YOUR SHIT OUT

And Kaiba’s characteriscally-but-forgetfully derisive

oh my sweet precious fleeting grip on sanity it was yoUR GODDAMN IDIOT IDEA. YOU. YOUUUUUUUU. SHIT. SORT. NOW. PLEASE.

Speaking of fleeting grips on sanity, Jounouchi and Yami go to help Rishid but he’s like “lol don’t mind me, it’s Malik you gotta watch out for cause he’s about to flip the fuck out Disassociative Identity Disorder style”

And they’re like, legit, “Gasp! Namu is Malik?? The only other person on the blimp???” #sortyourshitout

And Malik FINALLY - cause you know he rehearses this in the mirror right? right. - gets to be all like “YES, IT IS I, MALIK! AHAHA”

But then tragically, like 67 seconds later, he becomes the very Malik they have not been fighting this whole time but instead becomes the Malik they will henceforth be fighting…

Who is very dismissive of The Artist Formerly Known As This Very Malik.

Fucked up things about mother! and what they meant, or at least, how I interpreted them

Mother! is a film that marketed itself as like a mystery thriller.

You see a couple living alone in an isolated house with a weird crowd of people coming in for…a reason.

And you think oh, so it’s a mystery. What’s happening? So you go see it.

And what you get is a metaphor about the lives of celebrities and their families. 

Now.

Let me explain my interpretation. 

First- 

Invasion of privacy:

Obviously, all of the people, polite but invasive, were a metaphor for how even the most polite “fans” are still intruding. 

Everything’s normal at the beginning of the film. Even though Jennifer Lawrence is a little uncomfortable with the old man and his wife, she’s still not totally upset. Social manners dictate that she be a kind hostess. And she is, she takes their invasion pretty well, since her husband seems reasonable and kind for letting two strangers in.

These two strangers are just “fans” of his original work. They’re normal people who just admire him. That’s normal, right?

“Fans are people too.”

They’re just admiring. 

At this point, Jennifer Lawrence and her husband are normal people who are just happy that their work gets recognized.

This is “small” celebrity status. 

People who are recognizable, but not uber famous. 

They get to be friendly with fans, get one on ones without people getting weird 

But then….

Fans make their own personal problems somehow related to their celebrity and behave badly when their celebrity’s family or friends tell them to step off, they don’t own that celebrity (*coughs, sound familiar, tumblr?) 

So the two “normal” fans have two fucked up sons. One kills the other. It’s a tragedy. Jennifer Lawrence expresses her condolences, but Michelle Pfieffer is cold and says she couldn’t “possibly” understand while Jennifer’s husband is gracious and “mourns.” 

Michelle Pfieffer is a “fan” who sees her own problems in the lives of the celebrity’s family. 

She then “takes sides” according to how she applies her own tragedy to the celebrity’s situation. 

And she takes the celebrity husband’s side, because he’s “mourning” while Jennifer is uncomfortable with people in the house. 

But this mourning is pandering.

He’s showing only the slightest of true sympathy for them. He just revels in the drama, in being the hero, who comforts all. He is their messiah, he pities their small problems and comforts them because he is a benevolent master. 

Additionally, all of the family members come in, invade Jennifer’s home.

They re-paint.

They jump on her sink even though she TELLS THEM REPEATEDLY that it hasn’t been braced yet.

Then it BREAKS. 

Like this is just the beginning.

Celebrities and their families TELL their fans not to do something.

For a practical reason.

But fans do it anyway because they think they’re being cute, playful. They take liberties with celebrity’s possessions, with their reputations. 

They treat the celebrity’s things like toys and then let them clean up the mess while they get off scot free and retreat into anonymity. 

Then the celebrity gets MORE famous. People ADORE him and treat him like a god who can do no wrong, whose every action is sacred. They then DEMONIZE close relatives and friends when they have NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT GOES ON WHEN THE CAMERA IS OFF. 

So Jennifer Lawrence has a baby. The madness is over. Her husband is happy because he finally started writing again. He published a book and everyone’s excited. 

She’s happy because it’s just the two of them, plus another, the baby that’s coming. 

There’s no stain under the carpet  (blood, from when one brother killed the other earlier) and she throws away medication she’s been taking the entire movie to deal with the stress. 

But then the paparazzi come. Fans come. They come and they take her husband away from her.

Earlier, he went away for an “emergency.”

He left his wife alone because he “had to” and he assumed that she would be ok.

And she’s an adult, after all.

It was traumatic, but she excuses him because he’s a “good man.”

But in this case?

He just adores the fame.

He leaves her to bask in glory. 

He doesn’t eat dinner with her, a dinner she made specially for him. 

And THEN, he tells everyone to come inside.

They eat her meals. 

They start taking her things, because they “need a piece” of the poet they adore so much.

She tells them to stop but they don’t care. 

This whole part was clearly a metaphor for how celebrities’ lives are treated as commodities. 

Everyone feels entitled to their favorite celebrity’s lives. 

They want a piece of them for themselves, but don’t consider that maybe one day, there’ll just be nothing left of whatever it was that made that person special. 

They also take liberties with her food, her toilet, her possessions, her house.

They tear things off the wall and run off with it. 

They shove her around and don’t care that she’s pregnant. 

And then….

Kristin Wiig the editor, social civil war, and how celebrities are expected to fix the entire world’s problems by being “icons” when they’re really just people. 

Ok, this part of the movie was really weird and kind of tedious. For some reason, the film went from people invading and cutting up her house to…women in cages.

People fighting in the living room with riot masks. 

People getting pepper sprayed. 

Bodies covered in ash all over the floor. 

Nurses and medics rushing to help people lying on the floor, dying. 

And amongst this mess is Jennifer Lawrence and her husband…who inspires people. 

Who sees their suffering and wants to help…but who disregards his wife.

Who starts to see himself as a messiah, instead of as the man he truly is. 

This is a fascinating part which I only understood JUST NOW, as I was typing this! 

Celebrities are our “fantasy.”

The real world is horrible. 

People die in terrorist attacks. 

People protesting are pepper sprayed and beaten. 

Women are sex slaves being sold like goods. 

Disgusting men walk around destroying everything. 

And here we have a celebrity who’s powerless to stop these things. 

And yes. 

Yes, he is a figure of hope. He can offer people some comfort in trying times. 

But he’s also human.

He has his own responsibilities. He’s just a man.

He NEGLECTS HIS WIFE AND CHILD to be the people’s “savior.” 

And that leads us to: 

A baby is taken from her mother, its neck is snapped by the people’s rough handling of it, and its corpse is ripped apart and eaten by his father’s fanatics

Ok, this part was horrific. 

But I understood what it meant. 

He wanted people to see his child because they “asked.”

He really did want to support his wife, at some points, but every time, EVERY TIME, his fans came first.

His image came first. 

He took her baby from her after it was born after assholishly waiting for two days for her to FALL ASLEEP.

Then he gave it to the crowd.

And they tore it to pieces.

Clearly, this was a metaphor for a celebrity’s family.

Everything they do is consumed by the public. 

The babies of celebrities are neatly folded into consumer goods the moment they’re born.

They’re battered by scandals and by the public’s eye. 

It was brutal to watch and I think the message there was that we don’t consider how it would feel to be born with a spotlight on you and your every action.

We take it for granted, our privacy.

Our right to live our lives unmolested. 

But kids?

Kids of celebrities are always being “held up” and “eaten” in a way. 

Ok, so the scene ends with the baby being eaten and with one fan saying, “We’re so sorry for your loss…but he will not be forgotten!” 

This to me says that people will apologize for their actions…but not mean it. 

They’ll never learn their lesson; they’re just sorry their dark side was exposed to the light.

They’ll hide it away again until the next situation comes along. 

Then…

Jennifer Lawrence’s husband refuses to apologize and he refuses to change his ways EVEN AFTER HIS BABY WAS KILLED

Seriously. 

His baby died and what does he tell his wife?

“I’m sorry…but we can make something out of this tragedy! It wasn’t for nothing!”

It shouldn’t have happened in the first place.

Jennifer Lawrence is disgusted, rightfully, because he’s just thinking about himself.

he didn’t care about her or her baby. 

he cared about the publicity. and now that the baby is dead…he still thinks of himself as the people’s god.

he “makes” tragedy into yet another moment of worship. 

And then a scene that just wouldn’t end…..

Jennifer Lawrence is brutally beaten by a crowd calling her a whore and her shirt is ripped at and I’m forced to see her boobs popping out 

Ok so…this part was really upsetting. 

You thought a tiny helpless baby having its neck snapped and its corpse eaten was as bad as it got?

no. 

After her baby is killed….what happens?

She stabs a bunch of people with glass.

And then they descend on her, screaming, and beat her brutally, punching her in the face, in the stomach, tearing at her shirt.

Her boobs pop out.

And then her husband FINALLY comes to her rescue.

Now. 

This part?

Well.

A celebrity’s family member is angry at her privacy being violated. Or she’s angry about a way she’s been portrayed in the media.

She lashes out. 

And is mercilessly torn apart by a misogynistic public.

Like I think her breasts popping out wasn’t meant to be sexy at all.

It was literally the grossest thing I’ve ever seen, not that Jennifer Lawrence isn’t hot, just that…

I don’t find people beating a woman’s nose in and then kicking her still pregnant stomach as she lies bleeding on the floor sexy foreplay.

Plus her boobs aren’t sexually shown.

They’re just there, on display, after a crowd of people beat her almost to death. 

Now. 

This scene to me…makes me think about leaked nudes.

Everyone was calling her a whore. 

Celebrity’s wives are under careful scrutiny, you know?

In a way husbands aren’t. 

So rumor  mills always accuse wives of cheating, or of being shrill, nagging, selfish bitches who don’t support their husbands. 

This to me was the story of a wife of a celebrity who was treated horribly by the public, who’s as human as the rest of us but doesn’t get to be because she’s in the spotlight. 

Her brutal treatment was really symbolic of how people don’t know SHIT about a celebrity’s home life.

They assume they do and demonize anyone deemed “harmful” to their celebrity, who they CLEARLY adore because they can do no wrong….and that includes family members. 

But they don’t know anything. They don’t understand.

And people get hurt. 

Families are torn apart. Love is lost. 

And finally….

Jennifer Lawrence gave everything to this asshole, then blows up the house she built for him, and THEN her burnt corpse still gives him its heart, which becomes the priceless antique that he’s treasured for years 

This was the ending. 

She’s dead. 

She’s burnt everything, the house, their possessions, him, the people. 

And yet…she still gives him the last thing she has. 

Her heart. 

When he never deserved it.

And he takes it, smiling.

And it becomes a priceless jewel, something he’d had in the beginning of the film, which had been broken by one of the many visitors. 

So this part was infuriating because..

then you see another woman waking up in the house, right where Jennifer Lawrence started.

So there you go.

That’s the ending. 

There’s a massive scandal.

The public takes the celebrity’s side, of course.

The celebity’s wife is destroyed socially and publicly.

She’s forever that “bitch” who hurt a good man. 

A brave hero. 

(who let his son die and let his wife deal with this pain all alone). 

She’s burnt every bridge she knows.

She doesn’t have her baby or her husband or her home or anything.

This seems to me like a metaphor for divorce.

The celebrity’s spouse is divorced and has nothing anymore. 

In fact, they have less than what they had before, because at least before they knew anonymity.

Now they know hatred from people who only saw the whole debacle from the side of the celebrity, and only pitied and cared about him, since they don’t know this non-famous, normal, human woman. 

But she still gives him her heart, saying she loves him, loved him. 

And he has everything she ever gave him, all of the support and love, and now that he has it from millions of adoring people?

He doesn’t need her anymore.

He takes what she has left and leaves.

And finds a new woman.

A new victim. 

And it begins again, the scrutiny. 

This movie was fucked up. 

But damn. 

Was it fascinating. 

Because the social commentary is simply phenomenal.

I’m actually kind of bent out of shape about this, because the movie was brutal, but its message was even more brutal when you realize it. 

It wasn’t a mystery thriller like it seemed. 

it was a story about the media. 

And about fame and power that corrupts and destroys people who’re really not that different from you or me. 

All I could think about was Britney Spears and how she had a mental breakdown and all people could do was mock her and make fun of her and shake their heads, telling their daughters how they don’t want to grow up like her.

She’s human. 

Humans are fucked up. They fuck up.

The only difference with celebrities is that their mistakes are horrifically public, and the backlash is much worse. 

So…

I hated this movie.

But fuck, I just realized, I kind of loved it too. 

Edit: I’m a fucking dumbass. It’s an allegory for the Bible. And that’s it. Ok. I’m an idiot. Disregard everything I said.

No!” You screamed, covering your face with your blanket, letting only your squinted eyes see the television screen. Next to you, Lin only laughed, remarking on the female heroine’s actions on screen. You glanced over at him and rolled your eyes.

“How are you not freaked out by this?” You questioned him, your eyes narrowing as you watched the light from the television dance over his facial features.

He looked over at you, “(Y/N), you invited me over for a horror movie marathon. This is entirely your fault if you’re scared.”

“Yeah, but I didn’t think you’d enjoy the horror movies.” You remarked back, almost grumbling under your breath.

“It’s cinematic mastery at its best – controlling the human psyche, predicting your next reaction. What’s not to love?”

What if MC didn’t take care of herself while V was hospitalized? (based on day 10) pt. 2

I actually got a lot of positive responses to the first part of this story so I was encouraged to keep writing it c: Thank you first of all to those who left encouraging comments! It really means a lot since this is my first story I’ve posted on tumblr. 

This part revolves around Jihyun and Jumin this time and how they’re holding up knowing that MC passed out probably because of them. Also for all intensive purposes of medical records, I gave MC a surname/last name. I imagine that her last name would be “Jeon” xD Just a heads up.

Pt. 1 // Pt. 2 // Pt. 3 // Pt. 4

Part: 2/?

Length: 2093 words

Pairing: VxMC

Warnings: none

Sorry for any grammatical errors ^^;;


Having let their emotions settled down, both Jihyun and Jumin were able to process what had just happened. Jumin knew something was wrong with MC when he first saw her. Compared to  the photo that Seven had sent earlier in the day, how could he not have noticed that her health was visibly declining? Jumin was anxious. Jihyun was guilty. And they didn’t speak to each other for a while as MC was the only one occupying their minds.

Seeing MC hooked up to an ivy and wrapped up in multiple blankets was not exactly what Jihyun wanted to see the moment he woke up. All he wanted was to assure her that he was fine and be there for her just like she was for him. Had it not been for the fact that he was still making his way out of anesthesia, Jihyun would have had a fit in one way or another and the pain in his abdomen was far too great. He knew he was still at risk of opening his wound again, so he swallowed his desires to sit next to MC. Grunting as he dealt with the pain, Jihyun made a tight fist with the blanket balled up in his hand and some tears rolled down his cheeks. It was all a mingle of physical and emotional pain at the moment and he just wanted it all to be over.

Rika had stabbed him but he could not care enough about her. He had always been living for her obsessively, and this was his payment. And in so, he thought he was extremely weak for having let himself be fooled by her. Why did he have to talk to her back in the mountains? How could he not see her delusions were going to drive her to do something like this? Why did it take so long to realize Rika would not stop with just his eyes?

Jumin on the other hand was doing exactly what Jihyun would have done. He was standing by MC’s bedside simply watching over her. He felt it was for the most part his fault that she was like this at the moment. What would have happened if he had just come to watch over Jihyun with her since the moment he found out that he was in recovery?

It was no wonder that the two men in the room were close friends as they felt the same kind of remorse and shared the blame over MC.

The silence was broken when another nurse came in about ten minutes later with documents in her hand and a wristband to put on MC with all her information. Hanging her clipboard at the end of MC’s bed, she asked Jumin, “I assume you’re her guardian?”

Jumin simply nodded without saying a word. He knew he was not MC’s guardian but someone had to take care of expenses at least and give permission if she needed any certain treatments. (lowkey only happens in k-dramas)

“Alright. So the patient, MC Jeon, presents symptoms of dehydration and malnutrition. Her body temperature was also slightly lower than normal so we have to monitor her every hour. But we suspect she has something else and it doesn’t appear on Miss Jeon’s previous records, so we ask if we can run a blood test. Given, the results won’t be back until morning.”

“Please run any tests that are necessary. Her health is my priority. But do you happen to know when she’ll wake up,” Jumin asked while trying to hide his anxiety. Hiding his emotions was usually easy and effortless, but that night was especially difficult. Anyone could hear the shakiness of his voice and Jihyun was quick to pick up on it.

“Honestly, it could be a few hours or more. What we can assume for now is that she put her body under so much stress and well, with dehydration on of top that, she just needed to shut down for a while. It’s a natural healing mechanism for some.”

Jumin hummed in acknowledgement and allowed the nurse to leave. He honestly had no further question because he was already so distracted by MC. Once it was only the three of them in the room, Jumin had fell into his seat, letting a frustrated sigh.

“Jumin, it’s okay to be frustrated. Don’t try to suppress your emotions,” Jihyun muttered seeing as his friend was clearly struggling to keep his emotions hidden. “It’s not necessary for now.”

Jumin had been so focused on MC that he had disregarded his friend who needed equally if not more attention. Stealing another glance at MC, he returned to Jihyun’s side, sitting by the opened window. The breeze entering through washed away some of his anxiousness as he unbuttoned his shirt at the top, allowing him to breathe more freely now. Like earler, Jumin continued to slide his hands through his hair until he could finally calm down.

“Forgive me, Jihyun. I know I said I’d look out for her but now the both of you are hospitalized,” Jumin expressed his guilt. But he was quick to change the subject as it was only making him feel more sorry towards both MC and Jihyun. “But tell me, how are you holding up?”

“Everything hurts,” Jihyun grunted as he weakly placed his hand over his stomach, wincing as sparks of pain traveled up his spine. This was definitely more painful than when Rika hurt his eyes. “But I have to endure it all. I was hoping this would all end with me but I hate myself for this. I really wish I could’ve kept this agony and torture to myself. I didn’t want MC to share in this.”

“Looks like you didn’t change even after ending up like this. I’m not letting you take all the blame for this. Not this time,” Jumin lightly interrupted as he pinched his nose. As much as he cared for his friend, it was getting redundant how Jihyun would entitle himself to suffering. Gesturing with his hand to emphasize his disappointment in his friend, he controlled his tone and volume of voice as he scolded Jihyun, “Listen, you’re my friend but this habit of yours, to take all the blame–I need you to stop that. You… you know, I hope after this incident you can start changing and not just for MC’s sake but for yours.”

“I know, Jumin. But here it really is my fault. Rika and everything up until now is because of me–”

“I’m not going to argue with you right now, okay? I don’t need you straining yourself. I want you to recover so that MC can have one less thing on her shoulder. God knows what else is going on in her life,” Jumin finally exhaled. He really did not want to be giving Jihyun a sermon right now on how he should live his life, but he could not deny that it was not the healthiest way to live either. He was genuinely concerned for MC even if they had only met very recently and he could see that she had connected with Jihyun in such a way that it harmed her. The way Jihyun behaved now was not healthy for MC at all and if he had to lecture his friend later on, he would. For MC’s wellbeing. After all, it was the least he could do for trusting Jihyun so much.. Who knows where everyone would be if he had not pried into all secrets earlier. “Jihyun, it’s my fault for not coming here sooner. It’s my fault for not making sure that MC was fine. I was too caught up chasing the hacker with Seven and Jaehee, so no, it’s not your fault that MC lost consciousness. I’m telling you this as a friend. Your behavior lately really concerns me.”

“I’ve been bothersome all this time haven’t I? I can’t imagine how long you’ve been infuriated with me. Everyone’s probably thought of it too,” Jihyun already knew this. He had always been conscious of his fatal flaws but he never thought that others were so aware of them and having this dawn on him, he felt a pool of embarrassment and shame in his stomach. Sensations of weakness were beginning to arise in his recovering body and he acknowledged that this was a conversation for when he would be in optimal condition.

Jumin decided to leave the conversation there and move on too. He would bring up this discussion once more later on.

“Jihyun, I don’t know if you’re going to like what I’m about to say,” Jumin lowered his eyes as he genuinely could not bring himself to look at Jihyun for what he was going to say. “We can’t have the party tomorrow. For yours and MC’s sake. It wouldn’t be right to have the party without either of you, and well, the both of you are our priorities now.”

Jihyun let out an exasperated breath clearly displaying his disbelief and his mind began to spin. He was not someone who was easily angered but in that moment, he was riled up and pissed. But he was not mad at anyone, not even himself. He was frustrated that their plans had to change at the last moment after all the effort MC had put in.

“Dammit,” Jihyun growled as he forcibly removed the oxygen mask from his face and hurled it at the floor. That sudden movement was a terrible idea as he felt a stab of agony in his abdomen. Coiling over and his breathing shaking, he grasped his stomach region as the pain drew tears from his eyes. “Ahh…ah..ugh-”

“Jihyun! Take it easy, please. You’re worrying me sick already,” Jumin reacted immediately and tried to ease his friend back into a resting position. “Shit… Your wound.”

“Ah… I think it’s–ugh–fine,” Jihyun winced and endured his pain as he bit his lip. He was having trouble breathing rhythmically as his discomfort seemed to grow exponentially. Lifting his hospital gown shirt, he saw his wound—a three inch scar, closed with stitches. Luckily, it had not reopened as a result of his brute movement. But Jumin caught something else besides the wound.

Jumin motioned toward the bruising closer to his ribs and lower side. Noticing Jumin’s gestures, Jihyun looked at what was catching his attention.

It was bruising from Saeran’s abusive outburst. The images were still all too clear in his mind and the sensation of being kicked still remained in his muscle memory. Jihyun still remembered Saeran’s crazed mental breakdown; he recalled gasping for air and crying out for the unstable boy to stop; he remembered feeling guilt for not having been able to save MC on his own. That was something he still couldn’t tell anyone about.

“I’ll tell you—agh—some other day,” Jihyun delayed revealing the truth as he weakly pulled his shirt back down.

“I trust that you won’t keep any more secrets, my friend,” Jumin sighed, a disillusioned tone in his voice, and laid his hand on Jihyun’s shoulder. “You’ll get through this. You and MC. I know that you’re both strong.”

“Ha… MC is probably stronger than me from what I see,” Jihyun bitterly chuckled.

Almost as if on cue, a nurse came in with a tray of tubes and a needle to extract blood from MC. Both Jihyun and Jumin were thinking the same thing. They hoped that MC’s tests would come back without displaying anything negative. The nurse quietly performed MC’s lab work and before leaving, she notified Jumin that visiting hours were over and that he could come early in the morning to see the blood test results. However, Jumin would be too busy with canceling the party so he gave his permission to disclose the results to Jihyun who would be in a much better condition by that time. After all, they were both going to take care of MC.

Soon after the nurse left, Jumin also said his goodbyes for the night. He went over to MC and gave her some words of encouragement, hoping that she would hear even in this state. Right before exiting, he turned around and gave his friend some words of advice.

“I’ll pray for the both of you while I’m away. For your health. You know, MC was also praying for you when I came in earlier,” he relayed. “Like you said, she’s strong, but she could use a little bit of help…

“Jihyun, I think you should pray for her too.”

You needed another couple of days away from work. You’ve barely been back from your days off and you’ve already had enough of the drama. SHIELD used to be such a ‘boring’ place to work! That’s what you loved about it, there wasn’t much of the usual office relationship drama. That is until you allowed yourself to fall for Bucky. Everything went downhill from there.

You tried working from home but there was only so much you could do. There were classified data to be examined and SHIELD’s network had extra security software to make sure this information didn’t leak; you couldn’t risk handling that kind of intel outside a secure server. So as much as you wanted to stay in bed in your pyjamas watching Netflix you now had to get up and go to work. Yeah, it was not a prospect you were looking forward to but let’s be honest here – broken heart is not a real injury. You can’t pull a sickie because of that.

The “I didn’t have internet for almost 2 months and used up all my 4G reading 1d fanfiction” fic rec :)

 louis/harry chaptered

+ Curly Bun Man

  • I just paid for these Doritos but they’re stuck in the vending machine and I know you’ve been waiting but I am not going to let you buy something until you help me. AU 

a ghost in my lungs (it sighs in my sleep)

  • “Sometimes, when Harry is alone, he’ll stop what he’s doing - texting, fiddling with a ring, reading - and go still, like he thinks if he’s quiet enough Louis will emerge from his hiding spot and say hello.”  Alternately, the one where Louis is a lonely ghost haunting the house on the hill, and the boys move in on a Tuesday.

Poor, Unfortunate Soul

  • Louis, drunk and confused, falls off the side of the cruise ship. Harry, who had been following some dolphins who had been following the cruise ship, rescues him and takes him to a small island until help arrives (as it always does, because Louis is not the first drunk to fall off a boat). But until then, it’s just Harry and Louis. Oh, and Harry is a very handsome, shy merman. Who might have a thing for humans. And Louis, apparently, has a thing for mermen.

+ Cupids Chokehold

  • But - naively, stupidly, blindly - Harry holds out hope for a love that’s written across the stars. He can’t give up the feeling that there’s someone out there, waiting for him. He’s just going to have to wait for them, too. Or: Louis is a Cupid who tries to match up Niall and Harry. It doesn’t work out as planned.

louis/harry oneshots

this unnatural path, it spans infinitely 

  • “You’re gay,” Louis suddenly says, snapping Harry out of his trance. He nods slowly. “Yes, I am.” Louis then goes silent again and swallows back. He closes his eyes shut tightly and lets out a breath. Harry is somewhat worried, mostly because he’s just met Louis today and hasn’t seen him act so strange. “You’re so fucking open with it, Jesus.” New York City: The city that never sleeps. Harry, a university student, takes a trip to New York City with his university and is partnered with Louis Tomlinson. Secrets and fears are revealed and a feeling of longing comes out between the two. or an au where Louis and Harry are on a trip with their university to nyc and the fall in love and fuck.

Wax Off

  • Harry reaches back in with both hands, wordless. The span of his hand wrapped easily over the top of Louis’ thigh, his thumb pulling to stretch the fragile skin there tight. With his other hand, he grasped at the edge of the hard wax, peeling it up just enough to get a grip with his thumb and first finger. He looked up to meet Louis’ eyes. “Ready?” Harry helps Louis wax everything off.

All the kids at school (they were wishing they were me that night)

  • “Are you sure that you two aren’t dating?” Louis forces his gaze away from Harry’s scrunched face and looks to Nick, already rolling his eyes, “Yes, Nicholas, we’re sure. There are these neat things called ‘friends’, perhaps you’ve heard of them, and me and Harry the best kind and best kinds of friends don’t screw each other on the sly. ” Or Getting voted 'School’s Hottest Couple’ when they aren’t actually a couple complicates things a bit.

Tonight We’re The Sea And The Salty Breeze

  • “How may I make myself useful Mr Styles?” “I heard physical activities made you lose lots of sweat and water, great way to eliminate the toxins from what I’ve understood.” “Are you propositioning me?” “I am.” or AU where Harry is rich and handsome and Louis serves him a smoothie.

+ Jump The Gun

  • He groans in frustration, slamming his suitcase shut and maybe slamming his head against it a bit, because Harry Styles is trying to kill him, and it’s all because he has a stupid fucking fetish for girls’ underwear. (or, Louis likes to wear lingerie. Harry likes that Louis likes to wear lingerie.)

+ Bambi

  • “What’re you here for, exactly. I really would love to know.” “Just here for a chat,” provokes Harry. “Lovely to get back home, you know. Got a turkey in the oven–” “At three in the morning. Get real, Bambi.” Louis deadpans a look at Harry, his eyes emotionless as they bore into him. “You’re here for the zirconia, aren’t you.” or the au where harry becomes an assassin and has a mission at louis’ house to steal the million dollar zirconia for zayn.

+ The Way You Make Me Feel

  • “You couldn’t last a damn day without trying to sleep with me." "I can last a whole fucking week,” Harry says, rising to Louis’ challenge. “Wanna make a bet on that, Styles?" "You’re on,” Harry grins. Or, Disney AU where Louis and Harry try not to fuck in public places.

+ A Match Made in Aisle Three (Everybody Cutloose)

“Don’t feel bad,” Louis said. “You picked the machine that freaks out on customers more often than not. It’s not your fault it froze on you.”
“Oh, OK,” Harry replied. “Glad it’s not just me, then.”
“Yeah. Um, I’ll move your stuff to one that works.“
"Wait, don’t!”
Too late.
Before Harry could finish his request, Louis saw what Harry’s purchase was – a giant bottle of lube.
Awkward.
So Louis did what he does best: made it even more awkward.
“Big night tonight?”
Idiot.

Or, the one where Louis is a drama student/cashier who assists Harry in buying a bottle of lube, and is also the only guy that frat boy Harry has trouble talking to.
Also featuring Sophia as stubborn matchmaker and Liam as accidental wingman.

Rinse Me Down

  • Louis just wanted to raise a bit of money for his Uni political party. Niall and Zayn decided on a 'people wash’ because “nobody drives cars anymore”. It quickly becomes a hedonistic water fight.

louis/zayn

tell me now and i won’t ask again

  • “You said you couldn’t live without me,” says Louis casually, eyes sparking a bit, and Zayn wants to tell him don’t ruin the momentbut he can’t deny this boy anything. “Didn’t think you cared so much, Zayner.” He pretends to swoon, eyelashes fluttering ridiculously, and he’s messing around but it doesn’t make him any less lovely in the lamp light. “You’ll give a girl the wrong idea, there.” or  Louis and Zayn as best friends, boyfriends, fiancés, and husbands.

+ keep you like an oath

  • Zayn doesn’t recognize the man through the peephole, but he looks harmless enough, so Zayn swings the door open, barely able to get out a greeting before,  “Hello, would you be interested in being my boyfriend?” The stranger asks.  “Uh,” Zayn mumbles, looking between the man and the space behind him, waiting for someone to jump out at him and tell him what’s going on. No one does. And the stranger is still grinning at him, blue eyes shining and teeth on full display as he waits. “Who are you?” Zayn finally asks, when the stranger makes no move to give him more information about what’s happening.

nor are mine ears with thy tongue’s tune delighted

  • louis is the shrew that doesn’t want taming. harry happens to like being adored, thank you. liam is hopelessly lovesick. niall’s the man with the plan. and zayn is in it for the money, until he isn’t. a 10 things i hate about you au. 

+ unwanted pets and the right kind of friends

  • the only things stopping louis from getting laid are his friends and a turtle named Lebron (and maybe his own feelings). or four times louis and zayn fail to have sex and the one time they do.

+ Love is Art and You’re My Canvas

  • zayn is fresh out of juvenile detention, louis is blind and both of them are the only ones who truly know how to take care of each other. 

+ i’m not looking for a lover

  • Zayn has recently come into possession of a fortune he wants little to do with and time he doesn’t know how to waste. And then there’s Louis, someone who can solve both of these problems even though he has his own load of baggage. They meet in New York. 

louis/liam

+ Soul

Liam tosses a grin back over his shoulder. “What are you going to do when I’ve gone and there’s no one around to drive you round the bend?”

Louis’ bike coasts to a stop. It happens so slowly that by the time he’s at a standstill, Liam is far ahead, up by the curve. “I’ll forget.”

Liam stops much more quickly. They’re alone in the dome; their private conversation can be held across thirty feet of open space. “You’ll what?”

Louis watches him. “I’ll forget,” he repeats. “Not the way you forget things, when you can’t pinpoint them but you still carry them in your heart. I’ll just have my hard drive wiped.”

Or: Louis is the medical android tasked with taking care of Liam in a world after nuclear war.

For ‘Grey’s’ Doc Jessica Capshaw, Work-Life Balance Is a Total Myth | Yahoo Style

Jessica Capshaw, who plays doctor Arizona Robbins at the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, says starring on Grey’s Anatomy has changed her life. She’s loved playing a lesbian onscreen but had no idea what her story arc would be when she first signed on as a guest star.

“[Shonda Rhimes] called me into her office and she was really direct. She was like, ‘I want you to stay for another episode, and in the next episode, you’re going to kiss Callie,’” Capshaw tells Yahoo Style, referring to her former onscreen partner played by Sara Ramirez. ‘I’m game to try stuff. So I was like, ‘Yeah. OK!‘”

Eight seasons later, the actress is a mainstay on the medical drama. Her “go with the flow” attitude has taken her character through all sorts of crazy plotlines including the loss of a leg and a recent divorce, which has opened the door for Rhimes to toss another curveball Capshaw’s way: having her heat things up on creen with her real-life friend Marika Dominczyk.

“It was definitely one of those moments when you were like, ‘I’m going to kiss my friend.’ That’s going to happen,” she says, with a laugh.

When she’s not saving infants onscreen, Capshaw is busy parenting her tribe of four. And while she, like many working moms, is juggling a career, family, and personal life, she is quick to proclaim that the idea of work-life balance is a fantasy. Here’s more from this outspoken actress.

What do you love about playing Arizona?
There’s a lot of loss that transcends in themes with Arizona but I think this season gets to be more about finding what she loves and getting to be in a relationship that’s a little irreverent, to get to be chased by someone. She gets to feel the newness of being in a relationship that is physical that is not her ex. And that’s been really fun to play this season. It’s been nice and new and fresh.

Arizona was with Callie for so long. Is it fun to get to play the field now?
It is! This year, my love interest is played by Marika Dominczyk. I’ve known her for quite a while, and she’s a good friend of mine — and married to Scott Foley, who is also a friend of mine. It’s a very interesting negotiation, but we had fun. We laughed a lot. And our husbands have definitely had a laugh or two over it.

Do you feel honored to be able to help fight for equality by portraying this character on a weekly basis? And to eventually teach that lesson to your kids?
I never would have imagined that I would be able to play a character that would feel like it does so much good, whether it’s people who feel like the character resonates with them and it makes their day a little easier to see themselves represented. Or if it’s someone watching it who has someone in their life who is gay and they might have not understood it before and all of a sudden, they have another person or another thing to point to and say, ‘Oh that’s a different context.’ Being able to play a lesbian as a series regular on television has been enormously rewarding.

My daughter goes to preschool, and the preschool has all kinds of families. And I guess one of the kids said, ‘You have to have a mom and a dad to have a baby.’ And my daughter said, ‘No. No you don’t.’ And this was all overheard and told to me later. She said, in a very kind and patient way to that child, ‘There can be a mom and a mom and a dad and a mom and there can be a dad and a dad.’ I am so grateful that she will never know any different, and it will only be if she is in the presence of people who are on the wrong side of history or small-minded that she will hear anything other than that. I feel grateful to have her living in a family that will put her out into the world as someone who understands the world a little bit.

You work long hours on the show but have four kids and a husband at home. How do you do it all?
My schedule is incredibly all over the place. A lot of people, especially who are working moms, say it’s all about balance and trying to create a balance, and I respectfully disagree. I don’t know that any part of my day is ever balanced. I don’t spend equal parts being mom or being a worker, being a wife, being an advocate, being a humanitarian, whatever it is that I am endeavoring to be.

I constantly have to make sacrifices. With four kids, there are going to be that many holiday performances and there are going to be spring performances and field trips and muffin mom. So there is tons of stuff that is there for the doing, and I pick and choose what I can. I find in my own life as a mom, that I always try to pick the things that I actually enjoy because I think my kids see that in me. I have a crazy schedule, and sometimes it works for me to be able to do the thing that I said I was going to do, and sometimes it doesn’t. So you sacrifice sometimes being able to go to the thing or pick up the child. I had much more stringent and very inflexible ideas of what I thought it meant to be a great mom when I first started.

I remember thinking that there was just no way in the world that my kid would ever have a doctor’s appointment that I wouldn’t be there for. But when you’re just starting out, you think things should be one way and you’re humbled that it takes a village. And there will be times when your kid is sick and they need to go to the doctor and you’re not going to be there. But thank God they are still going to the doctor. It’s just so unrealistic to think that we can do it all.

Your youngest is 1. Has it been exciting to return to your pre-pregnancy style?
I never wore maternity clothes, except for a couple of pairs of — yes, it’s true — jean shorts that I wore where I swear the inseam was like half an inch. It was embarrassing. I like myself a pair of jean shorts. I just did a recent purging of my closet, and I’m not gonna lie, there were probably five to six one-inch if not half-inch inseam denim shorts that had to go. I really felt like maybe it was time. Maybe they have just run their course in my life.

Once I had kids, I definitely did start to realize how I’d like to dress that feels comfortable and at the same time it feels current and it feels stylish and you feel like it has an attitude or an opinion. And sometimes you are in your workout clothes until 4 in the afternoon.

Fashion-wise, what are you into these days?
I find that for me, in the summer especially, it’s all about dresses. It’s one stop. You put on your great dress and some sandals. I love almost the entire Ulla Johnson line. They are great dresses; they are easy to put on. I also love finding sandals that go with everything and then finding a pair that have a ton of color that I’m excited to pair with something. I stick with blues quite a lot — light blue, dark blue. Besides blue as a color, I tend to say in the neutrals and the nudes, the creams, and the whites and the golds. I love a button-down shirt. I love a great pair of jeans. And I love a heel. I loved when the block heels came back in. It was so great because they are so much more comfortable, especially when you have four kids.

I have some fellow-mom fashionistas. My friend Marliene Rentmeester has a blog called Le Catch. I get the little newsletter every day, and it’s always got something fun in it at every price point. Unless it’s very ephemeral and very inexpensive, I think at this point in my life, I’m all about the classics. What do you love that you’re going to love for a very long time?

What’s your stance on scrubs?
I count myself among the lucky that I get to go to work in my pajamas. It takes me like 14 seconds to get into my outfit.

Has it been fun dressing your kids?
I kind of live for it. I have a little bit of a problem! And on any given day, probably any of my children are dressed better than I am. They go through their clothes so fast, but I do have to say, I stretch it out.

How did they hide your baby bumps on set?
During the tenure of my time on the show, we went from having real x-rays and real clipboards to having iPads. I used to carry the pads and the x-rays and it would be right in front of my stomach, or I would stand behind desks and that kind of worked. Then the Microsoft pads came out and I was like, ‘I have less room to hide!’ So they had to play with camera angles. But I think if anybody looks at the past couple of seasons, you’ll definitely see when I’m pregnant and when I’m not! Debbie Allen directed an episode one time where she actually used an entire ambulance to hide my pregnant body. Everyone got a very good chuckle out of the fact that it took and entire ambulance to cover me. I was like, ‘Guys I’m not that big!’

I’ve heard that Shonda Rhimes is a huge advocate for working moms.
She is amazing. She understands that every mom is going to need something different. And what she’s been so great about is she goes to the person and says, ‘What do you want? What do you need? What would make this transition and being a mom good for you in this way?’ She’s a godsend, and she’s in the earned position where she has quite a bit of power and she commands attention and understanding from people. And she’s able to say “This needs to be looked at” to the powers that be that might not have been keen on expanding options for maternity leave and childcare. And I think that’s an incredible thing.

Do your kids visit you on set?
I do believe that sets are a workplace and you have a ton of adults, you have a ton of equipment, you have a lot of dust. You have people that are frustrated, people that are joyful. And I’m the worst, by the way. I don’t know how it’s possible but I never cuss at home. I get to work and I cuss like a sailor. And you’ve got words going around. So I am always like, “The set it not a place for kids.” But we all have kids come and visit in our trailer, and I feel like when we are on location, kids always come visit because it’s a park or a building and that’s fun.

Do your kids realize their mom is a big TV star?
People come up and they’ll say something or they’ll ask for a picture and my kids think it’s the funniest thing they’ve ever seen. They just think it’s hysterical! They don’t understand it.

Your mom was an actress. What did she teach you about navigating Hollywood as a woman?
I think the greatest gift that my mom gave me was that I never saw myself as less than because I was a woman. I never thought — and naively so — that I’d have to give up more or I couldn’t do as much or I couldn’t get as much. She has such a strong character and incredible conviction, and she’s done so much and she’s accomplished so much and she’s just traveled so far. I think you have to take it one step at a time. If you find out there is a guy getting paid more than you and you do the same job, then you pick that fight. But it can’t be about everything all the time, at least not in that moment. I think then people get overwhelmed and they lose sight of what they are actually fighting for. I think it’s very important to be organized in your call to action in order to understand what it is that you want to accomplish before you go out there with arms swinging.

“Uh, you can put me down. It’s just a sprained ankle.” + jungkook + itazura ba kiss (it started with a kiss)!AU ......random I know. The quote just reminded me of an iconic scene from this series. Lol.

AU Itazura na Kiss / high school

This is, quite possibly, the stupidest thing you’ve ever decided to do; though, you suppose in hindsight, this’ll be something funny to look back on in twenty years. 

Assuming you’re even around twenty years from now. 

The pain in your ankle is no joke, and you’re flat on your back on the court, feeling tears welling up in your eyes. 

“Holy shit! _____! Are you okay?” Taehyung says, almost tripping over his feet as he runs from his seat in the stands to get to you, tie flapping into his face in the process. 

“Yeah, I’m… I-I’m good,” you say, groaning when you try to move your leg to stand. 

There’s murmuring surrounding you as other students start to gather, curious about what has happened, about why a senior is currently lying down on the campus tennis courts like an idiot. Your cheeks start to flush, but more from the embarrassment of suddenly becoming the centre of attention than anything else. 

“Dude, that was an epic fall,” Taehyung says, spluttering with muffled laughter. You groan, reaching up to hit his arm. “But seriously. Are you oka–” 

“Move.” 

You lift your head just in time for the crowd of students that have circled around you to part, making way for Jeongguk to step forward. He looks down at where you’re lying, completely stone faced, and you hate that even from your unfortunate position on the floor, he still looks just as handsome as ever. Taehyung gives you a look, shuffling aside with the rest of the crowd. 

“That was the worst backhand I’ve ever seen, _____,” Jeongguk says.

GOT7 Reaction: to their s/o fainting or falling on stage

A/N: Hopefully this is what you wanted! I got a little carried away and these turned out more like drabbles than reactions. I got kind of lazy at the end-oh well! Enjoy! [INBOX IS OPEN]

  • Jaebum | Jaebum would move like a demon is on his heels, he would practically sprint to you. Don’t be surprised if he catches you before you hit the ground. When you finally wake up its an hour later and only Jaebum is in your apartment, looking down at you as he places a cool compress on your forehead. He looks worried and so unusually flustered that you can’t help the soft smile on your face. “You scared me.” He mumbles more to himself than you and you make an exaggerated pout and tell him sorry. He rolls his eyes at your apology and gives you a quick peck. “If you’re really sorry, you’ll get better.” In true k-drama fashion he doesn’t let you out of his sight for the next week and coddles you to the point you try to make an escape attempt out of your apartment. ( “Where are you going?” “I just wanted to get some fresh ai-” “No. you need to rest.” “But-” “No.” “But-” “Nope.” “Jaebum!”)
  • Jinyoung | Jinyoung knows how important your career is to you, he knows you would spend every hour working, jump every hurtle to get what you want. He’s always loved that about you. You’re not afraid to try, even if you might fail. Wither you fly or fall, he would stay by you. And you tend to fall a lot- literally. Whenever you fall he would help you up and then give you a kiss on the forehead and mumble to himself about how clumsy you are. He wouldn’t give it a second thought until later but Jinyoung is always paying attention to you. You should have known he would have noticed. As the show goes on you tend to favor your right leg over your left, your steps seem a bit off, you aren’t smiling as bright and probably the most telling is the lump that is starting to swell around your left ankle. As soon as your done thanking everyone for coming, he’s in the wings of the stage waiting and quickly tugs you down halls until you find yourself seated in Got7′s dressing/waiting room. The staff members hardly bat an eye at you as they move around collecting their stuff but Jinyoung leaves your side and comes back with a small first aid kit and a nearly frozen water bottle. “I couldn’t find any ice.” He tells you before wrapping the bottle in a towel and pressing it against your swollen ankle. Unknown to the both of you a certain member - bam - has been recording Jinyoung’s romantic health care techniques. Unsurprisingly, he gets casted as a medical student in his next movie. It’s amazing, he gets an Oscar. 
  • Bambam | Both you and Bambam tend to be a bit careless. He is constantly forgetting his keys to the dorm or date plans, but it’s part of his charm. You on the other hand will get so invested in work that you forget to eat or drink - time is money! It’s no surprise when the dehydration finally hits you and you go crashing to the ground during a warm up set. The staff on stage give off a shriek and your boyfriend as well as the rest of the staff backstage run towards you. Bam is always one for the dramatics and he cradles your head and ask if your ok and break out into blubber tears when you don’t respond and then break out in blubber tears again when you do wake up. He’d hug you and burry his head in your shoulder mumbling something about “I love you” and “I was so scared.” and you’ll just laugh to yourself and tell him you’ll be fine once you drink some water. 
  • Jackson | Sweet Jackson is always around you. He’s beyond affectionate and being the affectionate, caring boyfriend he is, he is always taking care of you and being the overall doting boyfriend. When you accidentally twist your ankle going down some stage steps, you expect to meet the ground and you mentally prepared for the pain. In an instant warm arms are wrapped around you and your momentum was stopped. You look up to see the concerned face of your worried boyfriend as he quickly scoops you up bridal style. ( “baby are you ok?” “I-I’m fine, it’s just my ankle..”) You can hear the clicking of cameras going off and you look over to see fans clicking away at the both of you. Some of them even overhearing your conversation and pulling out their phones to record. You bury your head into his shoulder out of embarrassment and you hear Jackson chuckle as he walks back up the steps and towards backstage. Fan sites and netizens find the whole incident super cute. Unfortunately, so does media and gossip sites and you two have no choice but to confirm your relationship the next week. On the plus side, no more secret dates!
  • Mark | You were super excited to have been picked to join got7 on stage during the fan meet. When Mark had called out your number you quickly made your way to the side of the stage with the other chosen fans and waited to be allowed backstage. Once on stage Mark quickly pulled you into a hug and you guessed he must have felt your nervous energy and was trying to put you at ease. You quickly melted into the hug, letting him swing the both of you from side to side before finally letting go. As the interaction went on, you and Mark stood side by side as you watched the rest of got7 and their members try at the hackie sack game. When it was Mark’s turn he got to as high as 4 before the sack fell to the ground. Finally it was your turn. Luckily those days back in elementary school must have been good for something because you were on 15 before you misjudged the placement of your feet and stumbled over yourself and towards the ground. Luckily Mark had been close enough and grabbed on to your waist before you embarrassingly met the ground. He pulled you back into his chest and you could feel the heat radiating from your cheeks as the host said with 15 you had swept the game and won the prize for your team. 
  • Youngjae | In retrospect, the big issue with water effects during a stage is the potential risk for injury. You were in the middle of a duet with Youngjae, a cover of the classic ‘Endless Love’ when suddenly you go tumbling on to your back. Before you fell you had tried to steady yourself by grabbing on to Youngjae but it had caught him by surprise and only ended with him falling on top of you. You looked up at him and watched as his face quickly turned red as he realized the position you both were in. He quickly stumbled his way off of you and then reached for your hand to help you back up. You tried to straighten your clothes the best you could but the back was now wet and sticking to your skin. When you had both fallen the music had turned off so you and Youngjae glanced at each other and the audience before Youngjae started to finish the song acapella. You quickly joined him both of you falling back into the practiced routine and finishing. When he had finished the last note, Youngjae reached for your hand and you allowed him to pull you closer as you both gave a bow. As you were both being directed off stage by handlers you realized that he had yet to let go of your hand.
  • Yugyeom | You pass out during a joint stage with got7. One second your doing a routine with another young woman and the next your on the ground and the other girl gives off a scared shriek as there is an audible bang as your head hits the ground. Yugyeom can’t help his feet and he goes running from his side of the stage towards yours. Once he reaches you he’s relieved that he can’t see any blood but he’s terrified to touch you in case he might make it worse. When the ambulance finally arrives to take you, he jumps into the ambulance before his manager or anyone else can say anything about it. He doesn’t answer the many phone calls from the rest of the group and staff until much later. When you finally come to, your head is wrapped and your laying in a hospital bed. You can feel a weight on your arm and you look over to your side to see Yugyeom’s blonde hair as he sleeps beside you, his head resting on your arm. You smile softly and run your other hand through some strands of his hair before letting sleep take you once more.
