Film Analysis: The Themes of Wonder Woman

Source: Warner Bros. Pictures

I know I pretty much never deviate from SU but I really loved the latest Wonder Woman film. I just wanted to do a brief analysis because I feel like there are so many themes to unpack in the film (so there’ll be spoilers) and I was pleasantly surprised by the way things turned out. 

I’ll be using images only from the official trailer WB posted on their YouTube channel though, in case you happen to scroll past and don’t want to see anything yet.

This post doesn’t feel like the appropriate avenue to talk about the cast, the sets, music, and colours, so I’ll be focusing on the film itself, particularly on the story. I enjoyed all the other things about the movie but won’t go into them here.

1. Diana of Themyscira 

Source: WBP

Before any other character in DC and now the DCEU, I read and watched Wonder Woman. One thing I’d like to point out is how the story doesn’t shy away from her god-heritage and how that dictates her interactions with others. In fact, one pertinent lens to view this film is that of self-discovery.

Diana doesn’t know she’s god. Throughout the story she believes that she is as capable as any other Amazon (I really liked the Amazons, but maybe another post). She believes she’s equal in capacity and potential. I think this is an important thing to note. Diana didn’t go into war, looking for Ares, certain she was stronger than any other member of Themyscira. She left her home not because of a conviction that only she could do the task but because she believed it was the right thing to do. In her eyes, her mother and the other Amazons just didn’t see the value in entering human affairs the way she did. That was all. 

What I appreciated was that she went on her “hero’s journey” not out of a sense of duty as the only one who could do it, but precisely because anyone could go and help put a stop to the fighting. It then was not a question of who was most worthy, which is a question that excludes, but a question of who believed in this cause.

That agency is important in the story, as many heroes’ journeys often begin with a powerful force that pushes the hero to step up. In this case, she could have remained in her insular life, but she decided to step out of the comfort of the island and into a world she’s repeatedly been told does not deserve her.

In that regard, Diana knows what’s waiting for her will be difficult and fulfilling her objective will be a struggle. That struggle extends beyond the fighting, as even walking down the street is an issue for her.

And these “issues” are laden with our concept of heteronormativity. We’re talking about the early 1900s and perceptions of women at the time were brought up again and again. How she should act, speak, and dress are all moments that were presented with a tension that rubs up against our current understanding of equality. For instance, that a session could no longer be held because a woman entered the room is the kind of dissonance that I feel was intended to come off as laughable, because decades later the idea of perpetuating the same attitude is absurd (and very inefficient). In the same way, I feel it calls to attention present and more subtle forms of bias that the film hopes we grow to see as equally absurd to perpetuate.

Diana is presented as a character of depth. She is exceptionally strong, learned, and yet feels like a believable character because she is also prideful, flawed, funny, and naive. It’s a good proof as to why realistic movies don’t have to be “gritty” per se. Grit isn’t the magical ingredient; it’s grounding. And in her struggles to understand those around her as well as understand herself, the movements of the micro story are embedded and woven into a huge historical narrative, that of the Great War. 

And I think that’s where we feel all our individual stories are. We are at once absorbed in the primacy of our own lives while living in the tumult of the world at large. Navigating both the personal and the global is the daily struggle. 

Despite all of these struggles, both the physical fighting and the social tension, Diana stays true to her convictions about who she is and what she aims to do. Those beliefs can change, especially in light of new knowledge, which is what does happen in the film as she learns more about Sameer, Charlie, and Chief, but there is a Diana who remains. 

“I am Diana, Princess of Themyscira,” she says in the film. Her commitment to an identity of which she isn’t even fully aware is striking, and that message is empowering to any viewer. 

Because of this, the “reveal” of her godhood does not seem like an upheaval of her character. It is a part of Diana, but it doesn’t exclusively define her. In fact, as she knows more about herself, of which being a god is only a part, the more she is able to succeed. At the climax of the film, it is when Diana declares she fights for love and peace that she is able to muster up the strength to defeat Ares. 

2. Her relationship with Steve

Source: WBP

From the onset, Diana is presented as the protagonist of the film. There is no question. Her first interaction with Steve is her saving him from drowning. Then, she walks in on him immediately after he bathes. Then after they leave the island, she makes it clear that she knows about “the pleasures of the flesh” and just doesn’t believe that having two people sleep beside each other is going to lead to anything if they don’t want it to.

In the earlier parts of the film, their interactions were presented with vulnerability on Steve’s part (danger, nakedness, fear), but we begin to see it in all the characters as the movie progresses. Moreover, we see how they deal with their vulnerability. Steve is a cynic, and this underlies the way he acts.

Steve isn’t a one-note character though. He is complex and has stories implied about him. He is able to think quickly and hold his own in all the situations they’ve been placed. And his occupation as a spy does seem to hit very close to the theme of self-discovery taken by Diana’s character. As a spy, Steve holds on to his core identity and plays with the characters he assumes, never losing sight of who he is. As such, we have two characters very different, but also very similar. 

On the other hand, Diana isn’t presented as a character with gaps to fill (in the form of Steve). Rather, she’s a complete individual on her own, which is what makes her decision to love Steve more significant. It isn’t a decision of necessity, but similar to her deciding on taking the hero’s journey, it is a matter of choice.

The romance in the film feels organic in progression. I think it should be noted that the threat of death and the war ahead may have provided an adrenaline rush that propelled their romance forward, but even without taking it into consideration, they had a very intimate platonic relationship prior that could have believably developed towards the romantic. And again, for Steve’s character as well, it was a choice.

I enjoyed the contrast of Diana’s frankness and Steve’s truly trying to be inconspicuous and subtle in all his affairs. By the end of the film, both had begun to take up the better traits in the other. It is especially marked in Steve as he’d begun to trust Diana and open up about himself a little more.

3. The “Villain” 

Source: WBP

A lot of people I know found the “villain” Ares to be lacklustre, and the ending cheesy. I disagree because systemic issues and human nature are my favourite things to explore in media, particularly media created for popular consumption. 

Very explicitly it’s said in the film that we can’t all point our fingers to one “bad guy.” There is no one reason for war, inequality, poverty, and all of the injustice that we see in the world. There are many people who, and entire societies that orchestrate, execute, and then perpetuate the injustices that plague people even today. Tyrants don’t rise overnight (and they hadn’t in history either). This isn’t the first film to show this, and I hope it isn’t the last. 

I really liked how the film pointed out that systemic and systematic injustice exists. There are specific people who do things that are deplorable, but there are also systems that enable them, and I think that is the takeaway from this theme.

I also applaud the look that was given Ares. Instead of the stereotypical villain, who is bigger, more violent, and appears more physically powerful than the protagonist, we have someone who looks unassuming but is infinitely powerful. We don’t see the usual male villain who is really muscular and that becomes the focal point of his villainy. Instead, we have someone manipulative and powerful in a different way. Instead of the traditional god of war who brawls, we have someone equally powerful but more tempered in that power, and it’s the mark of someone who really has lost everything and everyone and now just wants to start over.

Striking also is how all of the characters talk about the war as “The war to end all wars.” That was the honest sentiment of people during the First World War. Operative term here being “first.” That there were more wars that followed really speaks of how those systems and ideologies lived on after the people who instigated the conflict. And situated in the context of all those who died and lost everything, it seems callous that we would keep fighting one another and causing more destruction. But it is something that’s been done and is now etched forever in history. 

The non-violent message features rather heavily in the film’s climax. When Diana fights Ares, the first thing to go is her sword, the one she believed was the god-killer. The sword is a classic symbol of violence, conflict, and war, and it was destroyed almost immediately. It’s interesting because she clung to that weapon throughout the film, and it gave her faith in her own abilities.

In the end, it is not brute force that will stop the existing brute force. Diana herself put a stop to Ares. It was what emanated from her that destroyed the embodiment of violence. 

In that regard, it is the individual who has to decide not to give in to the temptation of furthering violence and injustice. After all, Ares’ main role in the film was to tempt. That was exactly what he did to Diana and she resisted.

4. The role of Dr. Poison

Source: WBP

Isabel Maru had such a presence in the film, even though she didn’t feature on the screen as often as did the other characters. Back in London, they deemed her the greatest threat. They were setting out specifically to destroy her laboratory. 

I find her character very interesting because we get the faintest sign of a backstory from her and it’s still all very coherent. Her file reveals that she didn’t always have an injury on her face, and based on her interactions with Ludendorff and later, Steve, she’s searching for acceptance and affirmation. There is a subtle manipulation that goes into convincing her to continue creating poisons and chemical weapons.

Even among enemy lines, there is a struggle for her not to be infantilised and patronised, or to be viewed only as a woman in the case of her interaction with Steve. Especially in the latter scene, Isabel is fully aware of this and explicitly tells him she knows. She may not have been pulling all the strings, but she was presented from the beginning as a strong secondary character to the main enemy.

Diana was able to defeat Ludendorff relatively easily, but Maru had survived until the end of the film and was in the climax. What Ares tempted Diana to do was destroy Dr. Poison, and Diana let her go.

In depth: Throughout the movie, Diana was never directly pitted against her. The former’s goal was always to remove Ares in the form of Ludendorff. Then suddenly, close to the end, Ares pits the two women against each other (It’s all a very familiar story). Diana chooses not to perpetuate the cycle of killing and violence that characterises the pasts of so many of the other characters.

5. What it leaves us

Source: WBP

One emergent theme from the film that we get is a loss of innocence. At first, Diana is idealistic and feels her beliefs are clear-cut. Liars are bad. Ares is responsible for everything. Being strong is enough to save the day.

Gradually, we see her belief in these things erode, eventually replaced by an understanding that the world is more complex than it was made out to be. At the same time, there are moments when world doesn’t want to be saved.

It culminates when Steve sacrifices himself at the climax of the film. At this point, it appears as though there is no use in fighting Ares, and it seems as though Ares was proven correct all along. Human beings are cruel and violent and selfish. It becomes so easy to assume apathy. What does it matter what one person does if there are all these people and systems that perpetuate injustice? It becomes easy to give up and do nothing or give up and join in.

At the same time, though, Steve’s loss presents the other side of the story. Human beings are empathetic and altruistic; they try to see the good in others and are moved to change by others’ suffering. It is true that a lot of the systemic issues we see in the movie, particularly for equality and peace, are still present today, but we’re making progress.

Diana emerges with a realistic working understanding of human beings. They aren’t perfect, and they are capable of great harm, but also great good. As she said, she’s realised it wasn’t up to her to save the world for them, but she’d be there when they did make the decision.

In our current socio-political climate, it is almost the default to affect the same hopelessness and apathy. But that’s why the message of love, justice, and peace was anything but “cheesy.” It’s precisely what we can do in the environment we’re put in. It’s something that is in our control, and like all things the movie presents, it is a choice.


I really love Wonder Woman. Before there was Harley Quinn in my life, there was and will always be Wonder Woman. I loved the way Jenkins told the story and I really hope for more like it in the DCEU. So much could be written specifically about the character as a woman, and all the imagery that comes with it. And the Amazons. Countless posts could be dedicated only to analysing their social structure, values, and dynamics. The film was great and it did justice to a lot of what made Wonder Woman so appealing when I was growing up.

anonymous asked:

could you maybe tell me more about the predebut yoonmin flirting? always read that they were flirting so much in that phase but i don't really know anything about it. ^^'

170721 KBS Music Bank - EXO Comeback stage KOKOBOP..

SOMETHING BIG JUST HAPPENED ON TODAY’S MUSIC BANK!! 

We might be witnessing the event where Park Chanyeol and Byun Baekhyun boldly flirting on live TV..! 

Byun Baekhyun FREAKING did THAT on NATIONAL TELEVISION ..!!

watch closely.. After Baekhyun did that kissy face to Chanyeol, he looked behind the camera.. as if he is checking whether or not the camera is filming him.. Baekhyun knows that Chanyeol saw him.. Chanyeol saw his signal.. and if you noticed, Baekhyun keep looking at chanyeol, waiting for his reply.. 

you could clearly see that Park Chanyeol is shocked..! I don’t think he expected Baekhyun to do that THERE..!! At first i thought maybe they are hinting each other for something they are supposed to do or say or maybe Chanyeol is just teasing Sehun, but DUDE.! 

Park Chanyeol is freaking look at Baekhyun when he puckered his lips..!! They locked eyes when Chanyeol did that.. and that nods afterwards tho.. WTF..!?! watch the 1st gif again.. Look at the big picture.. 

Chanyeol replied Baekhyun’s “flying kiss” and he even waited for Baekhyun to nod - signaling that he received it..!!! 

GUYS..!! THIS IS HUGE..!! At least for me idk about you guys.. They are being bold again.. and this is very unfamiliar for me.. coz I thought Chanbaek already passed that phase.. That phase where they are careless, bold and clingy and sweet, whining to each other, being SOFT.. 

I noticed that Chanbaek had been very gentle and soft and sweet lately tho.. ever since the new era started.. eventho i kinda miss them like this, like they were few years back, but now, its kinda weird and scary at some point.. this is  so not like them.. they are not this whipped and careless.. they could be very obvious sometimes but not like this.. ITS A LIVE SHOW ON NATIONAL TV! And its Baekhyun who started it..?? I know many people gonna argue about this saying “Baekhyun always is fearless and bold” but thats not the Baekhyun I’m used to.. 

so Firelights.. I don’t know if i can ever moved on from this huhuhu, but so far this is the 2nd most obvious and bold moment Chanbaek ever done (in my personal opinion) besides the footsie.. lol.. and no.. its not like i dont like this thing they did, of course i like it, just its so sudden.. I got dumbfounded by it.. hehehe.. 

p/s: btw this is the original video ^_^

Summary:

Misha and Jared mess around during filming so that Y/N and Jensen have to redo their kiss scene several times.

Words: ~1200

A/N: I decided to make this a mine series, so tell me what you think so far. (I don’t mean any harm to Daneel but for the sake of fanfiction Jensen is single in this imagine.)

×××

I literally had to run to keep up with these guys. Unlike them I was small and had short legs so that one of their steps equaled three of mine.

“Could you guys go any faster?”, I mumbled, being quite annoyed already as I tried to keep up with them. Jensen’s pace instantly decreased and now was right next to me.
“Maybe you should grow a bit more.”, he smirked down at me before giving me a wink.

My heart stopped beating the second he did that to me. And he didn’t even know what he did to me. And it was sure as hell that he would never know.
Being in love with Jensen Ackles was way harder than I had ever expected. It was not only the fact that he was one of my best friends and therefore this whole feelings crap was putting our friendship on paper thin ice. No, it was also because of Misha and Jared constantly sensing my interest in Jensen and them never stopping to tease me about it, which someday, I was pretty sure, would the reason why Jensen wouldn’t want to be friends with me anymore.

And in general, Jensen mentally killed me on a daily basis. His eyes, his smile and his fucking flirty comments made my life so much harder.

I shook my head as if I would shake away the thoughts and finally replied, “Ha ha. As if I could just decide to grow more.”

Misha chuckled after he and Jared lowered his speed, as well. “Well, Y/N, I have to say I do love the fact that you’re so small. It makes me look taller.”

“Misha, I’m not small! It’s not my fault that you’re all so freaking tall. Especially you, moose.”, I laughed and padded Jared’s back. Then I felt Jensen placing his arm around my shoulder, putting his weight on me. “I think your height is perfect. It’s really comfy like that.”, he claimed and I hit him playfully before he picked my up and threw me over his shoulder, causing us to laugh uncontrollablaly.

My hands were pressed against his back while I felt all the blood rushing to my face, and not only because I was upside down…

He set me down onto the ground when we reached the set, ready to film some new scenes.

I knew that there wasn’t much time left. There were only a couple of scenes left until our kiss. Jensen’s and my character were going to get together. “Finally” according to Jared and Misha but Jensen and I left this awkwardly uncommented. We both knew that it wouldn’t be easy and I mentally scolded myself for not talking about this scene with Jensen yet.

“Okay, guys, we had to do some changes in the program. We moved a few scenes and today we’re doing the scenes in the church and at the children’s home. Tomorrow we’re going to film the bunker scenes including the fight between Sam and Cas and of course the kiss.”, the director told us before we started working.

There was one half of me that was happy about the kiss scene being moved but on the other hand I just wanted to do it and forget it again and act like it never happened so Jensen didn’t get suspicious.
But maybe I could built up the courage to talk to him about it since it was quite a thing in our relationship, at least it was for me.

In the evening I spend my time in my trailer, thinking about visiting Jensen and… you know. Talk to him about this thing. It somehow didn’t seem like a big deal to him and it made me thinking to much.
Was I overreacting? Was I putting too much thoughts into this kiss?

I had been alone for not even half an hour until Jensen entered my trailer, slowly opening the door and closing it again.
A shy smile formed on his lips as he looked into my eyes briefly.

It wasn’t hard to find out what he wanted.

“So, um, I wanted to… you know, um…”, he began, trying to find the right words, “You wanna talk about it?”
He approached me hesitantly before he sat down next to me, leaving an unusually high amount of space between us. “Yeah, I guess.”, I shrugged, wanting to be casual, which somehow loosened the tension a bit.

“I don’t want it to be awkward.”, he chuckled while he leaned back against the wall of the trailer, the pile of pillows embracing him. “Yeah, me neither.”, I agreed and even though his calmness made my shyness fade away, I was still nervous as fuck.

“You sure you’re fine with it?”, he wanted to know, his hands crossing behind his neck. “Sure. Why wouldn’t I? It’s just a kiss.”, I replied, not really meaning what I was saying. I was fine with it but I was so nervous about it and thought about it all the time. And of course the fact that it could reveal my feelings towards Jensen made it a bit not fine.. “It’s not like we’re going to film a sex scene. That would be awful.”, I continued, laughing at the end of the sentence.

I watched Jensen’s facial expression drop and my eyebrows furrowed in confusion. “What is it?”, I asked when he sat up again.

“You haven’t read the new script yet, have you?”
“No, I haven’t.”

“There’s this one scene… but I’ll talk to them. Maybe they can change it or maybe they can imply it or something…”, he mumbled while he shifted uncomfortably.
Somehow I needed a moment to understand what he was talking about and then it hit me. “Oh! No, Jensen, it’s fine. Really….”, I laughed nervously, “It’s just, um, because… I don’t think a lot about being naked on screen. With ‘awful’ I meant that it would be even weirder than the kiss. Between us, I mean…”

“So, you don’t want to have sex with me?”, he asked abruptly, a flirty smirk on his face, making my eyes widened in surprise. I was definitely not prepared with this kind of question.
“What?”
“I was just messing around with you.”, he chuckled and then stood up, strechting his limps. “Anyways, I need to go now. Still got some text to learn…”

I stood up too and followed him to the door where he gave me a tight, breathtaking hug before pressing a kiss on my forehead. A big smile appeared on my lips, unconsciously.

I watched him going away until he stood dead in his tracks, turning around and coming back to me again. “Do you want to have sex with me?”, he questioned with such a serious expression that made me laugh.

In your shoes.

This was requested a long time ago by @australiasami​ and initially I had some qualms about writing it because I didn’t know much, or any, at all but then, a sweet darling @balletbunsandsugarplums​ gave me a few advice and I am forever thankful to have you help me.

I am still worried about how this turned out so I hope it was alright and hope everyone can enjoy this! I have less than 28 requests now so I will work on them and hopefully by the end of July, I can open the requests again. Anyways, enjoy!


Being back at home is such a stress-reliever for you but too bad, the same cannot be said for your entire family, with the exception of Alfred, of course. You have half the mind to ask Alfred if he had been to Texas before but decided against asking him because Alfred might not even give you a straight answer. But you are back in Texas and you are happy to be back – it feels like you haven’t been home for the longest time.

“Y/N, we are not getting in that truck you have rented.” Bruce frowns, looking at the truck. “It does not feel safe.” You roll your eyes at your husband’s answer.

“Bruce, I love you very much, I really do but every single night you go out to fight crimes,” You whisper this part quietly, “You will be perfectly alright with getting on this truck.” You tell him, putting a hand on your hip, looking at him with one of your eyebrows raised, as if challenging him to answer back.

But before Bruce could even reply, Damian cuts in and slides in between the two of you, keeping his back to Bruce. “Mother, I have never driven a truck before – can I drive?”

Bruce and you look at your youngest son before answering, “No.”

Damian frowns. “Tt.” He crosses his road and moves to stand beside Alfred.

“Fine but I want to drive the truck.” Bruce finally relents and you smile at him before pressing your lips on his cheeks. He makes to move towards the truck and you turn to face the rest of your boys.

“Okay, Dick, you and Jason have got that truck and I trust Tim, Damian and Alfred will be alright with the last truck?” You ask and Alfred gives you a small smile, nodding his head. Damian looks at you.

“Are you sure I cannot drive, mother?”

You laugh, shaking your head. “No, Damian. Alfred’s driving.”

Jason picks up all of the luggage and gently throws it at the back of the truck. “Come on – the heat is crazy and I want to take a shower before we do anything later.” He calls out before getting in the truck he had been assigned to with Dick.

“We’ll see you at Grandpa’s house, Ma.” Dick exclaims before making his way to the truck. You wait until all of your kids as well as Alfred get in to their own respective trucks before heading to the truck where Bruce is currently waiting for you.

Bruce starts the engine as soon as you are seated, he glances at you and lets out a sigh before putting your seatbelts on for you. “Safety first.” He reminds you causing you to laugh before pushing him back to his chair.

“Come on – let’s go home!”

After eating the lunch your parents have prepared, you decided to bring your boys along to the local livestock show that happens to

After eating lunch that had been prepared for your entire family by your parents, you decided to bring your boys along to the local Rodeo. It took a little convincing mostly because Bruce had been skeptical but after reassuring him that no one would make fun of the Bruce Wayne, he had relented like he initially did with the trip and you beam. Damian had been as excited as he can get – though honestly, you think he was probably looking forward to the events where he can participate – Tim on the other hand is documenting every single moment, making what you assume is a Vlog. Dick and Jason are chatting with each other about how they could probably win the mounted shooting – your parents had been more than helpful with giving the boys details pertaining to events happening at the rodeo.

“Do you think if I ask mother enough, will she eventually let me drive the truck?” Damian asks once all of you arrive at the stadium. “Or perhaps, she will allow me to do some of these events?” He asks no one in particular.

“Maybe if you sneak away and do it, she probably would not realize.” Tim snickers, filming Damian up close. Damian rolls his eyes before pushing the camera away from his face. He has a few things he wants to see and if possible, register too.

“If any of you are betting, just don’t blow too much money.” You tell your boys before hooking your arm with Bruce’s. Alfred had decided to stay back at your parents’ house to help prepare food for dinner because all of your siblings and cousins are going to come down tonight and it’s really going to be really fun to see all of them again.

“This is surprisingly not as bad as I expected it to be.” Bruce presses his lips on your temple causing you to giggle, snuggling against his side as the two of you walk around the arena. You used to go to these things all the time with your grandpa while growing up and being here reminds you of the fun times you had with him. “What’s in that mind of yours?”

“I used to go to all of these things with my late grandpa – Rodeo was a huge deal to him and since I was the first born grandchild, he shared that love with me.” You smile at Bruce who nods his head. “Which is why I wanted to share that love with everyone too.”

Bruce feels a little bit guilty for his earlier reservations. He doesn’t even know why he had been so reluctant to come to Texas with you – perhaps, it’s a little bit out of his comfort zone, he can’t quite pinpoint why yet though – but now that you have shared that important part of your childhood with him, Bruce really wants to try to enjoy being in your hometown now.

“Alright then, you have me interested. What do you think we should do?” Bruce asks you but before you can answer, your comms – it’s a tad bit easier to have this rather than calling your sons one by one – rings and Dick’s voice enters your ear.

“Uh, guys – I think we may have to leave soon because Damian is starting to steal all of the cows he thinks are being mistreated.”

Okay time to voice my opinion

I think TS is making a bad move here. TS already has issues paying their managers and other staff, and they can’t even properly promote the groups that they have. Secret hasn’t been seen as a full group since 2014, Untouchable is ???, Sonamoo has been getting maybe…one come back a year, and B.A.P…well B.A.P is doing great for having been gone a year. They have a great international following so they aren’t doing terrible, but they still aren’t really known in Korea. Proper promotions could change that, but TS doesn’t know how to build hype. If they did..they would have given us more news on their comeback by now. All we know is that the boys are supposedly on Jeju island filming a mv. (and probably soon heading to Singapore seeing as they have a concert tomorrow night) Still no news on when they’re coming back. 

I understand that Yongguk and Himchan may head off to the army soon, maybe some of the other members as well. So maybe TS needs a new thing to try and bring in money, but even still. TS isn’t SM, they aren’t going to attract fans from their name alone. Also with all the other boy groups coming about, it’s gonna be even harder for this new group. Like I can understand maybe wanting to get the group out there and known before B.A.P starts going to the army (or even leaving the company), but I also know TS is dumb af and doesn’t know how to manage properly. 

At the end of the day I wish the best for this new group. Hopefully B.A.P will be okay, but I know us babyz won’t let TS ignore them. I worry most for Sonamoo, Secret and Untouchable. :( I can’t see the future though so who knows what will happen, I guess it’s better just to stay positive and hope for the best. B.A.P still has blue coming soon! So let’s give it a lot of support! And if you can, let’s support Sonamoo as well!

Talk about the liveshow! That was a wild ride

Where do I even begin…this liveshow…we are so shook, give us a moment.

First off, Dan was in the moon room. He has made a point of not showing the his bedroom to the internet, so maybe him showing the room is kind of trying to tell the internet something? Before they moved, Dan “accidentally” put hints in his liveshow, so now maybe he is doing it with coming out? (Demons take that as you will.)

Secondly, He said Phil was in his usual spot because he was “editing”. Dan could have done the liveshow in any room other than that, like the lounge, but he picked his room for some reason. He then changed the story later on where he said Phil was figuring out OBS (which is very easy to figure out actually I use it to film the Sims.)

Next, Dan shows his bedroom, and you can see the floor is the same as in Phil’s tweet about the centipede. (This has blown up I’m sure you’ve seen it.) If you look at Phil’s “bedroom” you can see the floor is entirely different than the one in the tweet. In one of Phil’s liveshows if I remember correctly, he kept the same story about being in bed when the centipede came in, so it can’t be that he just tweeted the wrong words.

Then, when Dan was talking about his emo phase he described it as having a “scary sexuality”, trying to be “queerer” and he asked if current emo was being “super gay and talking about our feelings” meaning he isn’t afraid to describe himself, or his past self at least, as queer. (Granted, he was talking about the emo experience as a whole, but he was definitely drawing from his personal experience.)

He said there would be a gaming video (Golf maybe), then Dream Daddy, Then Sims.

The Fitting (Part 4)

(Your attempts to ignore what happened between you and Jungkook are futile and you must make a decision about what your relationship will be going forward.)

Warnings: Oral, intercourse

It had been several days since you had last seen Jungkook and you were grateful for his absence.  All the boys were traveling for fan meetings and promotional events, but you had to stay behind in Seoul to finish alterations on their upcoming video wardrobe and get everything organized for the shoot.

In your mind, you practiced how you would behave once you saw him again.  The last time you spoke to Jungkook was when you had hooked up with him in the office.  You were disheveled, exposed, and still had the taste of him on your tongue when you told him to get dressed so you could get back to work.

You laughed at yourself for behaving so strangely.  You were embarrassed at the indiscretion and ashamed that you had been so brazen with someone younger, someone you worked with, someone you weren’t even dating.  The whole situation made you feel slutty.

On the other hand, slutty felt kind of good

So for the first time in months I have time to just do whatever I want and I thought I’d spend the first morning casually raising some points about Percy Weasley because oh boy.

So his last three DADA teachers were Quirrell, Lockhart and Lupin. We know that those are the years that you should be learning duelling, first verbally, then non-verbally, then who knows what Lupin taught the seventh-years but I’m sure it was excellent NEWT preparation, and we know old Perce probably got Os in all his subjets and he would probably need DADA to enter the Ministry. However, this guy also never raised his wand at anyone outside of class. When would he have? He stayed at the Ministry from the second he left Hogwarts to some time before the Battle of Hogwarts, and he was not a participant in active resistance until that point. This guy’s first actual real duels were most probably those in the Battle of Hogwarts. Okay but, how is Percy so good at it without real practice if one of the reasons why Lupin died is beause he was out of practice, not having rushed into squirmishes since August? How is Percy with no prior battle experience the one not only handing out simple Disarming charms but reducing a person to a sea urchin? Don’t get me wrong, stressful work environments must contribute to vivid fantacising about jinxing your bosses like that but how, HOW, is Percy good at real, outside-of-the-class duelling? I need answers.

We know George is that cool person who helps Harry put his trunk on the shelf first year on the train but how many others are struggling with the same problem? And  so is Percy, newly a Prefect, the kind of person who lends a hand to the Harrys of the train who I have no idea how they put their luggage on the rack without magic, or is he like “I am a Prefect, I am an important person who has to do important Prefecting” and just orders someone else to help first years? Or would he just levitate the bags instead of hands-on-help? Ah yes maybe that’s Percy.

So Percy is the only one in the family not in the quiddith team, but we know he is into quidditch, how can he not be? And he bets on it with Penelope. And he goes to the world cup other than as an assistant to Crouch Sr. So he’s into it, okay, stop with the fanfics where he’s not. But then, why doesn’t he play? Well we know he himself is more academic, but I had a thought that maybe because he was the third kid, and all the others were already in the house by the time he was 11-12, so maybe Percy thought he shouldn’t ask for a broom and go for the team if quidditch is not his priority? It would hold the team back to have a teammate who flies a school broom, I imagine, so maybe Percy thought it was better just to skip the quidditch thing and that made him so focused on other, more theoretical things even more so? But this is also kind of sad because what if he wanted to play if he could have?

That said, just wait until Wood hears this story and is like hey Perce you can fly my broomstick– 

What else, what else… Oh yeah, so the Wood thing. I will probably write about my theories in a separate post about what could have been there and stuff, BUT for now, let’s just go with the basic canonical probability that as roommates, Wood and Percy were in each others closest circles at school at least. This means that when Percy is not in contat with anyone from the Order until he contacts Aberforth (and why him? that’s so odd, how did he hear about Aberforth? How can he just contact him??? That is really out of the blue for me.), then the most obvious networking link between him and his family, like, Fred and George especially, not to mention the old quidditch team, all in the DA, not sure if all in the Order but they all came to fight so yeah they were there, super battle-ready, 24/7, so… anyway, so the most obvious link between Percy and his family would have been Wood. But hear me out:

Wood kind of represents this special person in the whole wartime evironment, who is talented and plays for a team that people know and cheer for and support and follow and he’s probably on some fan’s T-shirt or quidditch cards or something, even if he’s a relatively new player. (Although, it’s been 3-4 years by DH.) These things just happen when someone plays for a proper team/club. So it’s REALLY WEIRD if he goes “missing”. Super embarrassing for the government, however strong in their power, like, I don’t think the Ministry, even once the DEs have taken full control over it, can just terminate Oliver Wood from Puddlemere United, without everyone noticing that this is openly odd. These things cause outrage, even in the worst of times. I want to compare it to the Blood in the Water water polo game between the USSR and Hungary at the Melbourne Olympics 1956, just after the Hungarian revolution had been smashed into smithereens. Or, when the British government tried to use Lord Montagu, Peter Wildeblood and Michael Pitt-RIvers along with a dozen other high-profile court cases as a deterrent for offenders of laws against homosexual practices, at the time criminal offences, but then all that really happened was that the public was outraged more at the police’s entrapment tactics rather than condemn the victims of this increased wave of arrests and harrassment (so called “Lavender Scare” after the Red Scare), AND it lead to the Wolfenden Committee and their report in 1957 and subsequently the decriminalization of homosexuality between men over 21 in 1967, so the police really pissed against the wind on this one simply by going after famous people. Even if the law and executive forces have it in their power to strike down on anyone, all equal before the law after all, if they touch popular celebrities, there is public outcry no matter the regime. So my point is, Oliver Wood to me represents that person: he is super suspicious, he is known to have been quite close friends and teammates with not just Harry Potter but the Weasley family and so he is suspect but he is also someone who can’t just go missing overnight. He would be watched, he would possibly be brought into the Ministry on account of sports stuff but then interrogated in Yaxley’s office, I don’t know, but he would be able to walk in and out of the Ministry as number six from Puddlemere, on quidditch business, something none of the other Order members can do, if you think about it. Arthur is too much under scrutiny and no one would know if they randomly put him in Azkaban, but if they do that to Oliver Wood, even if the Prophet doesn’t report it and even if quidditch seasons were possibly on halt at the time, people will know and it’s weird so the gov wouldn’t really opt for any of that. Therefore, Wood is Percy’s guy, if he wants to contat the Order. Which, he did.

Percy seems more guilty than holding a grudge after A Very Frosty Christmas, to be honest, and it’s like he is doing this for his own as much as for his family’s sake not to contact them too soon, even though he says it’s been coming on for a while, the whole openly going against the Ministry… But… he was so ignored, probably super forgotten about when they realised he REALLY doesn’t keep in contat with his family… So he was in THE BEST position all throughout this, to mess with the system from the inside. Think Broy in the Michael Collins film (minus the execution). Only, he would have been better at it than Kingsley was. Percy never slipped up. That makes him excellently positioned to know everything, handle everyone’s files, read everything and copy everything and not be noticed. For all we know, he could have been acting of his own accord whenever he could, randomly sending out warnings to Muggle-borns before they are unjustly brought into the Ministry. And the better he did this, the less we would know. I imagine he would randomly mention this over Christmas dinner 1998, and everyone would be like YOU DID WHAT? And maybe for the first time in his life he wouldn’t brag but just shrug and say it was the least he could do if he wasn’t out there duelling Snatchers. There’s a really cool German film called The Lives of Others, and Percy could have been perfectly placed to be a cavity in the system unnoticed like that spy guy Wiesler. We know about people like Xenophilius beause he messed up by openly publishing anti-Ministry material but, I mean, Percy wasn’t even important or suspect enough to be put under someone’s Imperius Curse. This is incredible. MORE OF THIS PLEASE.

I will probably have a lot more to say later but yes I find Percy’s character so interesting because of all the unexplored potential that you may find parallels in if you dig up stuff from the Cold War era, regardless of the country. We all did this, spies, surveillance, it was a thing in all continents, and I would have loved to see more of this in HP. You have Lupin who infiltrates werewolf circles, you have the head of the Auror office Kingsley working for the anti-gov Order, with Tonks of course, and you have people like Percy who are powerful for their blending into the world of files and secretaries, and Wood who could be the darling of the sports scene, supporting the resistance while in the public eye, like artists or singers would be. The ultimate double-agent was Snape, of course, but it’s more about his inner emotional state with him, and his dubious loyalty, like is he a good person is he not, that kinda stuff, but I want to see more of these alternative ways of very realistic insidemanship from the resistance, which we might not hear about much because they did their job well.

Bitty’s Vlog

So, I’ve talked about the team trying to get on Bitty’s vlog. But I was thinking about Bob and Alicia, and how I am 1000% certain that they are going to love Bitty, and about what a nerd we all hc Bob as, and so:

When Bob finds out about the vlog, he watches all of them in like, a day (Jack got his 110%ness from his parents, okay) and he really really wants to get to know his future son-in-law (listen, he starts calling Bits that like, immediately, it’s “Mr Jack’s future husband” sometimes, but he will totally introduce Bitty as his future SIL, he’ll answer the phone or text him “hello future son in law, how are things”, I will fight you)

So obviously, he wants to get on the vlog. He probably asks Bitty about it in an indirect way at first, just trying to get Bitty to talk about baking, about ow the vlog works, etc. He likes seeing Eric get excited about it, and he’s almost as entertained by the jam dramas as Jack is (it’s a lot about how Eric’s accent gets thicker, because it’s a novelty that Bob finds entertaining, and a lot about watching Jack’s face go all soft and fond)

Eventually, he just really wants to be on it. Maybe some of the others have filmed with Bitty, maybe just Jack, but Bob wants in on the Baking Enhanced Bonding With Bitty. So, he’s sneaky about it, uses Bitty and Alicia’s BFF-ship to stack the odds in his favor. “Hey future son in law, i want to do something special for Maman, will you help me make her favorite meal? Perhaps we could record it, it’d be fun, eh?”

Bitty is Mildly Suspicious, but he acquiesces, because it makes him feel like a part of the family already when Bob is so interested in his life. And also, Bob offered his kitchen for the day, and the Zimmermann kitchen is Bitty’s literal dream come true.

Bob is a minor disaster in the kitchen, but it goes surprisingly well even if the state of the Zimmermann kitchen afterwards gives Bits a mild anxiety attack.

Alicia and Bitty are actually really close. Their respective partners are flabbergasted and overjoyed in turn. Alicia and Bitty discuss fashion and music and art for hours, they go to events together when Bob and Jack are busy or disinterested. 

But Alicia wants in on the Bonding. 

And there’s a community thing/WAG reunion for Bob’s former team/whatever, and Alicia is almost as competitive as Bob, and there was one woman who always had to one up Alicia with her desserts, and this year she wants her to eat her award winning torte with a healthy dose of Alicia’s dust.

So, she asks Bitty to help her make something that’ll knock her down a peg. And sweetens the deal with family recipe cards. Bitty is Very Excited.

Alicia is a decent baker, and has been secretly following Bitty’s vlog for longer than they’ve known about Jack and Bitty. She has been using his recipes to make the other ladies at her women’s group marvel at her skills. 

But she wants to spend some time with her future son in law. “You know what, we should do a video for your vlog! It’d be a blast!”

It is in fact, a blast. They drink wine and Alicia dishes about the baked goods one-up-manship and it’s just as petty as the jam feud, and Bitty loves it.

Just, the Zimmermanns loving Bitty and wanting to share his hobby/passion with him. And Jack watching quietly and falling more and more in love with Bitty, and imagine how his parents embracing Bitty makes Jack’s relationship with them so much easier, the pressure of perfection that Bitty has helped him realize is self-imposed melting further away in the unflinching love and acceptance of his mom and dad…

DATING DOWOON

@stephbangshope said : hi! i was noticing you didn’t have any Day6, and homegirl a hoe for them:-) so if i could, could i request what dating Day6 would be like? if that’s too much, maybe just my baby Dowoon?😊 love always girl!💕


  • the shyest oml
  • he plucked up the courage to finally ask you because Jae and Brian were teasing him and he was doing his best to convince them that he really could ask you out
  • stuttered slightly and almost backed out until you told him you’d love to go on a date with him
  • actually the Softest Bf In The World
  • he’d take a lot of photos of things that he wanted to share with you
  • he’d probably ask the other members to film him while he played the drums because he wanted you to hear something he made up for you
  • “I know it’s not super romantic but um… I hope you like it…”
  • but it would honestly be so sweet????? he would be so sweet????
  • not a fan of pda (p meaning either public or private tbh)
  • still, he would like to hold your hand even though he’d be a little embarrassed about how sweaty his hand was
  • early morning dates to see the sunrise
  • and he’d take candid photos of you with the sunrise in the background
  • Dowoon’s phone would be filled with photos of you
  • his lockscreen? you
  • his homescreen? you
  • Jay and Brian would be the #1 supporters of your relationships
  • they would never tease you, they would only tease Dowoon
  • actually, all of Day6 would all support your relationship
  • “young love”
  • Dowoon would want to tell you he loved you ten times a day but he would be too shy until one day it finally slipped out of his mouth
  • and he’d blush so hard and mumble something about how much he meant what he said
  • and when you told him you loved him as well he’d blush even harder
  • shy kisses all the time
  • mostly on your cheeks
  • he’d love when you kissed him on the nose
  • subtle couple items like phone cases or jewelry
  • he’d probably have your name saved in his phone as some cute if not somewhat cringy nickname
  • he’d smile whenever he saw it pop up on his phone, grinning down at it with his hair falling slightly into his face
  • Dowoon would be a soft boyfriend who would love you unconditionally and still be shy about things the two of you had done a hundred times and he would want to show you that he loved you any way he could
hat films are my special interest, and this fandom is not dying

I know that this isn’t a huge fandom like Supernatural or whatever. 

There’s so many people leaving, or that have left, that made good content and added to the numbers of us that are still around. Now it seems like the same content is shared over and over in our little bubble on media, which again, is good - we all have the same interests - and there isn’t a lot of variety in the content on tumblr that’s new, or there’s just not loads of it. 

Being a small fandom isn’t a bad thing, at all in fact. We’re still standing, we still have the same liking of those three that keeps us laughing and loving each video. 

The amount of times people have told me (in other fandoms that I’m in) that there really isn’t any point in loving these guys so much when the fandom is “dead” is really too much to put down in figures, and I’ve stopped counting anyway - it just goes over my head. Why? Because Hat films are my special interest. 

It’s a term in the autistic sort of group here on tumblr that I’ve seen it being used- it basically is just something we, as autistic persons, can get very attached to and excited about. We can talk about our s.i’s for hours on end and be very happy to do so! Every autie could have a different one, it could be an animal specie, a person in their lives, a tv show, literally anything. And since about 2012, mine has been Hat Films. 

Today, that means I have loads of ideas on the daily about aus and fic ideas, I love watching them and talking about them - heck, the whole reason I’m on tumblr was because I love the idea that there’s other people like me that also like them as much, maybe more, and won’t be like people outside of fans who don’t know what I’m talking about when I babble on and on about them so much. 

So when someone initially told me not to bother anymore about them or the fandom (since it’s “dead), I was initially upset. I wouldn’t have anything to be excited about- no one to share that with. 

But I realise that now, honestly, it doesn’t matter. Like I said before, the fandom is coming back from where it had a little downturn, and there’s more of us coming back or joining in. 

But personally, I don’t think I’ll be agreeing when people say this fandom is dying or is dead. I have met so many good people here - so many good creators, writers, artists, heck, I met the love of my life through watching three guys on the internet insult each-other and play video games. 

I’m going to try to be a better creator here - more fics and that, more activity. I like talking about and liking Hf in general, and if I can spread that, I’ll try to. 

Thank you to so many creators in this fandom - @threeplusfire, @blithe-bee, @marblellous, @lukadarkwater, and so on. If you read this and you are a creator - whether you write novel-length fanfiction or draw tiny sketches - I owe you so much thanks. You keep us going. 

A small fandom is still a strong one. And we’re a good one. 

Not losing you - Jensen Ackles x Reader

Title: Not losing you

Pairing: Jensen Ackles x Reader

Word Count: 2,107

Warnings: Serious injuries, Jensen relating to Dean

Prompt: Hey! I was wondering if you could maybe write an imagine where the reader is an actress on the show, and she and Jensen really like each other, and y/n gets badly injured and like unconscious when filming a scene and Jensen is really worried and stays with her in the hospital and such! Love your writing!!

“Jensen” Jared pursed his lips as he let Jensen’s cup of coffee on the table “Don’t do this to yourself, man. Please.”

Jensen’s hand rested on his knees as he stared at the sleeping form. Your sleeping form. If it was any other occasion he would have loved it more than anything, because yes he had guilty pleasures, but at that very moment he just wished so bad you could wake up.

“I almost lost her, Jared.” he felt a lump form in his throat as fresh tears welled up in his eyes “I almost lot her.” he buried his face in his hands as he tried to keep his sobs in.

“J” Jared placed a hand on his friend’s shoulder “It’s not your fault.”

“No but I should have been there, Jared. I should have been there damn it.” Jensen gritted his teeth “I should have been by her side in an instant.”

“That’s humanly impossible, Jensen. You know it.” Jared breathed out with a smile as his friend stubbornly shook his head.

It had started out first as a game. The four of you goofing around as you always did on set and as Jensen had come to love more than anything else.

The Clan of the Boltcutter

or, Why Keys Are Not the Tools of Freedom

Science fiction is a genre that loves its stuff. For a genre of ideas, the invention frequently takes center stage as the manifestation of those ideas, as the crucial prop of the plot twists, and as the symbol of whatever deeper meaning we find in stories of the Future-That-Could-Be. In a world of outlandish vehicles, practical prosthetics, and that damn guitar, the humble boltcutter may be the most powerfully symbolic object in Mad Max: Fury Road.

The recurring skull/skull-in-steering-wheel motif certainly dominates the beginning of the movie. What are the women and the audience left with at the end, though? For a story of escape and freedom, in which locks and chains make repeated appearances, we need a symbol similarly oriented around getting out, away, loose. Not a key, I’d argue, nor a vehicle, but the boltcutter: a tool favorable for the physically weak, independent of any of their oppressors, and designed to dismantle that which binds.

(Warning: under the cut, spoilers for everything. Seriously, much spoiler, so details, very warning.)

anonymous asked:

do you think the k army is hiding things about kookmin from the international arrmy to protect the boys, and if you do, then why? what made you believe?

another anon also said:

HELLO, i have been hearing stuff like the Karmy defending kookmin and their career and hiding stuff from the Iarmy, i wanted to ask your opinion.. do u think this actually happens, and if you do then why do you think that way and where have you seen it happend! thank u for everything and i LOVE ur blogggg

do i think this actually happens ? 

yes. i’ve been in the kpop fandom long enough to witness stuff like this happening you may or may not know but i’ve been shipping exo’s kai and D.O since 2013 , and i’ve seen this thing you’re talking about when Korean fans hide stuff from fans in general not only International fans, for the sake of saving the boys’ careers , so yes it happens .

 for kai and D.O’s case ,a Kfan/  chinese fans saw them actually “kissing” in the dark and she recorded them doing it  but refused to release the video , i don’t know but maybe it’s  their company that convinced her to not do it or maybe other kfans did .either way she did it to save their careers because she knew that it’d destroy the whole group’s careers if the video was released since korea is still a major homophobic country.

for ji kook/ kookmin i haven’t heard of anything like that happening yet , but i’m sure that Karmy aren’t releasing everything,because they know for sure that Iarmy basically make a huge deal out of everything so there could totally be some hidden moments somewhere out there 

like that iconic backhug moment, i’m 100% positive that it was filmed by other , from different angles,with better quality cameras, but the few other people who filmed it wouldn’t release their fancams.. 

also i don’t know if “kookminword” on youtube, and the other channel who originally made the analysis of” jimin hiding in jungkook’s hotel room” are korean or not, but they deleted the analysis from youtube to protect their careers, because they knew for sure that in the case of dispatch actually seeing the video, it’d cause a huge “dating rumor” that could potentially destroy their whole careers not just the two of them but bts as whole . so they definitely made the right decision by taking it downw

My ultimate review on LOGAN.

It’s been 6 hours after I finished the movie Logan and I still think about the ending, and I still let a few tears roll down my face. 

This movie killed me from the inside. It hit my emotions so hard that I need a few hours or maybe days to recover from this movie. No movie has ever done this to me. Ever. And this means a lot to me. 

The movie itself, I thought was very depressing, but life is depressing, and that’s what makes this film so real. It surprised me that Logan’s limp wouldn’t go away because I thought he would heal, and being a Wolverine fan since birth I had this hope that he would heal up and continue to be that helpful person with metal claws. But to my despair, he didn’t heal; instead, he became worse… he was dying. I did a little research before I watched this movie and read that this is going to be Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie, my obvious answer for that is that in the movie, Logan is going to die. Easy, right? I thought it would be easy for me to watch a fictional character dying but it wasn’t. At all. It killed me so much, my heart hurts writing this review. 

The film to me was missing something, I think it was hope. Hope was missing in the film. Though life is depressing and weak, there is still hope, and that’s how I function through life, and maybe others do too. In this movie, it felt like the whole world was tumbling down a giant hole where your destination is death. The journey for Laura was hopeful, but along the way you could still see Logan coughing, getting more injured, and Charles Xavier taking more pills and getting seizures every so often. That’s creating a hopeless emotion in the pit of my stomach.

What hit me hard was the death scene. Remember The Wolverine? Yukio said that Logan would die on his back, blood everywhere, holding his heart. It did seem very visible in The Wolverine film but it was in this film that Logan dies. Yukio’s vision is true. He was laying on his back, lots of blood, holding his heart: his daughter. I can feel the tears about to run down my face again, using his heart to describe Laura is what kills me. Throughout the movie, Logan and Laura have a hard time communicating to one another but in the end, Logan died protecting her and loving her. Logan loved her all along. And that hurts a lot for me because I really hoped that they would have more time together as father and daughter. Laura never had the chance to have an actual parent and Logan needed hope in his life. Instead, they got more bloodshed and death. The tears started to roll down when Laura said: daddy. Everybody in the movie theatre aw-ed, a few sniffles here and there, but I was balling. I was balling so hard because I knew that would happen! I knew it! In the middle of the movie, I told myself to be prepared for the daddy word at the end because we know what’s coming but I wasn’t prepared! I was balling my eyes out, it was so sad, and I think it’s because of my relationship with my father, in a way, that triggered my emotions. Maybe I wished and I hoped that Logan and Laura could have a relationship like me and my dad’s… the reason why I answer maybe is because I might be too embarrassed to admit it? 

No matter how hard I think, I don’t know why I was so emotional, and still am, emotional about the death scene. It hurt my heart to see a little girl watch her dad die, and it hurt knowing that she only met him for a few weeks. If you read down to here, you deserve a cookie. Logan was my superhero… thank you Hugh Jackman.

Why Don’t You Kiss Her? | M.C

Inspired by this song.

AN: I’ve been wanting to write something about this song for so many years. I find it so fucking beautiful and underrated. Maybe listen to it when you read it? I feel like it could be the perfect soundtrack in a film, oh my god. 

Originally posted by pikamikey

You and Michael had been best friends for the longest of time. Your personalities were so alike that it was like you shared one. There was nobody else who understood each of you like the other did. In fairytales, that’d make you destined for each other. 

You’d spent yet another weekend with your bestie, doing the goofy stuff you’d always done - played video games, watched movies, walked the dog, pigged out on takeouts, the usual. Now it was Sunday afternoon and you were on the sofa which turned into a bed which was supposed to be guests, but being lazy assholes who loved your comforts, you guys always opened it up. You were binge watching some show on Netflix as you snuggled next to him. Your legs were tangled as he held your torso close to him. This was totally normal, you both always got up in each other’s personal space because you were both clingy as fuck and totally tolerated the other person. 

Your mind was set on the show you were watching, but Michael’s was someplace else. He was concentrating on the beautiful soul he held in his arms, taking in your scent of your signature shampoo that lingered in your hair, noticing all the little details on your face and focusing on your expressions you bared as your attention sat with the TV. Everything about you was perfect, so perfect that it was as if a world famous artist had created the beauty that sat before Michael. 

You’re the best of friends. You share your secrets. You know everything that was on his mind; all except one thing, that is… your best friend was truly and utterly besotted with you. He was scared to admit it, but heck, maybe… just maybe… he loved you. But what he was certain on is that he really did have feelings for you. Whenever you were near, he had strong and prominent desire to never let you go. 

It had been going on for long enough; too long maybe. That’s when Michael began to internally converse with himself to decide what the fuck to do. 

Why don’t you kiss her? Why don’t you tell her? Why don’t you let her see the feelings that you hide?

Don’t be so stupid, he thought. He was so afraid to make the first move. Terrified, even. Because one touch could immediately cross the line. But would that even be such a bad thing? 

Would she just turn away? Or would she promise me that she’s here to stay?

Come on, Clifford, you dumbass, he mentally scolded. You can’t keep living like this. It’s been too long. You’re obviously not going to get over her that easily. If you don’t find out how she feels, you’ll never get over this. 'Cause she’ll never know if you never show the way you feel inside.

“Y/N?”

“Yeah?” 

You looked up to pay the blonde beauty attention. Something about you looking so natural on a Sunday made you so beautiful. Of course, you were always beautiful in his eyes, but seeing the real you, the rawness of reality, it made his heart swell. 

His tongue felt as if it had twisted, his stomach feeling knotted and a lump grew in his throat. 

Say something, you fuckhead. Something, ANYTHING. 

Instead of finding the words, Michael stared in your eyes, which were waiting with curiosity with what he had to say. That’s when he went into autopilot. He leaned towards you and captured your bubblegum lips with his slightly roughened ones. Taken back by what had just happened, you froze in a daze. Unsure of what was going on, but a feeling you had never felt before - especially towards your best friend - overtook your body, signalling for you to comply with the actions. You began to kiss back, which somewhat shocked Michael. He was beginning to think he had ruined it. Destroyed the friendship of a lifetime. But you had proven him wrong. 

He pulled away but was too scared to look at you. He looked down to his lap. You weren’t sure why he was being so shy; it wasn’t normally his kind of behaviour around him. You lifted his chin to bring his minty green eyes to look at yours. 

“Hey, where did that come from?” you asked, half giggling. 

He let out an exasperated sigh. 

“I like you, Y/N… I like you a lot. I have for the longest of time…. Being your friend is without a doubt the best thing that’s ever happened to me…. I’ve been blessed with some incredible opportunities in my life, but the single most incredible thing to have happened is you walk into my life…. I’ve harboured these feelings for some time, always too scared to tell you… but being your best friend has caused those feelings to strengthen to the point where I can’t hide it anymore….” 

He looked down at your bewildered face. 

“I’m sorry…”

You brought his face closer to yours, just an inch away from your lips. 

“The only thing you should be sorry for is not telling me sooner.”

“Huh?”

“I had no idea until you just kissed me, but every atom in my body danced around with passion and excitement. I guess I’ve had feelings, too, without even knowing. Had you told me sooner, we’d probably be steps ahead of where we are now,” you giggled. 

A smile grew across his face with utter happiness. You closed the inch gap between your faces and pressed your lips against this, softly kissing him. There was a wave of euphoria that sparked around both of your bodies. He placed his hands on your face to control the kiss with more passion. Your fingers tangled in the silk of his hair, really letting your lips tell the story of the emotions that ran through your bloodstream. 

As you finally pulled away, he leaned his forehead against yours. His lips stretched upwards almost to his eyes with the ecstatic feelings he was feeling. 

“Be mine?” he asked sheepishly. 

“Always.”

Let Me Know

Pairing: Jin x Reader

Genre: Angst, Fluff, smut (maybe Idk)

Summary: You and Jin have known each other for a long time now. He only had eyes for you and you for him, or that’s what you thought. Everything changes fast and there’s nothig you can do about it. The only thing that’s clear is that life can be messed up sometimes, but you can always change your path.


My conversation with Yoongi was suddenly interruped by a phonecall. My heart skipped a beat when I saw who was calling me. Jin.

We knew each other since school. Every girl had fallen in love for him but he only had eyes for me. I was his best friend. I am his best friend. And he… He was and is still breaking my heart slowly. I guess I was wrong. I guess he didn’t only have eyes for me.

I couldn’t resist it and I ended up answering the phone. I felt the need to listen to his soft and warm voice. The one I missed so much.

“Y/N, ho-how are you doing?”

I could feel how nervous he felt because of his shaky voice. Why was he so nervous? He was just talking to me. Like always.

“I’m good, Jin.”

The invisible space between us was filled with silence again. And I didn’t feel the urge to change it.

“Listen, It’s been awhile since we saw each other and…”

“We see each other everyday at high school.” I interrupted him.

“But we don’t talk. I miss you…”

If you only knew how much I missed you.

“…And I thought that maybe you could come to my house and watch a film with me and my girlfriend.”

I had no excuse. In fact, I thought that if I went maybe it would help me to forget him. To see him like a friend again and nothing else.

How wrong I was. If I only had not gone there…
