A lot of people have just been pointing this moment out that this is Hunk making Galra jokes, which is definitely happening, don’t get me wrong, but I also feel like it overlooks something else that Hunk is trying to point out:
Galra Keith, really is, way funnier than regular Keith.
Keith is more emotional than ever before this season. Believe me, I loved Keith a lot in the first season as well, but after Keith has figured out some stuff about his past, he has changed. And here’s the kicker:
I think the writers paired him up with Hunk specifically for this purpose.
I’m back from the event and I’ll write a report before going to sleep, mostly because I’m sure I will not be able to decipher my scribbles when I wake up… It’s not the full talk show since you can’t record it and also I couldn’t possibly write down everything, but I tried to take note of most things, especially stuff that has never been mentioned elsewhere. In the end it became quite long so I guess I was able to get most of the stuff down…
Needless to say it’s my notes, so other people might write about parts I omitted, etc. To be honest quite a few of the things they said especially in the beginning, like what the seiyuu think about their characters, is something I’ve read so many times in interviews that I could almost answer in their place, lol… I was a bit disappointed that one of the questions that was answered is the one about Chris’ mysterious acquaintance, because actually Kubo answered that in Pash already (it’s in the Q&A part I’ll be translating later), and I hoped they would feature questions about stuff that hasn’t been explained yet. Well I guess not everybody reads interviews, but still…
Due to the format of the report you can find my comments here and there, mostly in brackets. Under the cut because it’s long.
I forgot to mention something important: the ones participating in the talk show were Mitsurou Kubo, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).
What would all the DAI companions' and advisors' favorite memes be?
mods decided to divide these up into two important categories:
Sera. Sera, Sera, Sera. Can recite the intro to The Bee Movie, will send the entire script via text to anyone who tells her to stop. Rides Wheelies to Hide her Feelies.
Varric. Master of the copy pasta, can recite most of them by heart, but his favorite is the Navy Seals one.
The Iron Bull. Very skilled at bofa, leaving the Chargers absolutely refusing to clarify anything he says, and tragically trying to stop anyone else from doing the same.
Leliana. A fan of the classic rickroll, excellent at hiding urls so no one can tell what it is, intersperses the rickrolls with actual informative posts, so no one realizes what is going to happen to them.
Dorian. Big fan of the nihilistic meme, completely deadpan about them. Also runs a badnecromanytips blog full of dead puns.
Josephine. Only posts Wholesome Memes about loving her friends and enjoying life. It’s too sweet-hearted and no one can deal with it.
Blackwall. Posts near incomprehensible tragic yet hilarious memes. Sometimes posts farming memes?? Everyone is mildly concerned for him, but as Sera’s bbf (bearded best friend) he is aware of All the memes.
Cole. Really likes Spongebob memes?? He doesn’t really understand the humor, he just thinks they are cute. Sometimes will make those tag yourself memes as different characters representing his friends. He is showing his love for them.
Cassandra. Is delighted by Sword and Shields in-joke memes and posts them thinking no one understands, but Varric knows… he started them.
Vivienne. No one, absolutely no one expects her to have knowledge of memes, until one day Dorian makes a Mistake, and Vivienne replies with, “Blood orange, really? How pretentious. It’s red.”
non-memers who sera and friends torment:
Cullen. Doesn’t really “get” most memes because the levels of humor go over his head, but features in a lot of Sera’s snapchats with his hair steaming and chopstick stickers everywhere.
Solas. Believes himself to be above memes. Sera interrupts him before every sentence to go, “you, an intellectual”.
-He'a a legend, He’s Al Pacino. He’s an amazing actor certainty but, you know, the one thing I didn’t really know about Pacino, prior to the shooting was that he’s certifiably insane. -Oh really, you’ve seen the paperwork apparently. How does that manifests itself? -He has a joke, he likes to tell -He likes to tell joke? -Oh yes, he likes to tell jokes and he liked tell me this one specific joke over and over. And I really didn’t understand it. -You didn’t get the joke. -I did’t get the joke. -And he thought it was your problem that you didn’t get the joke. -Yeah absolutely, he definitely thought it was my problem. -So he keeps wearing you down with the same joke. -He flicked at it upon me and I could feel like, you know, IQ points dropping. -The greater the pressure, the dumper you feel. Did you ever understand the joke? -I finally figured it out yeah. -Do you remember the joke? - Yeah. He used to lean over and go “A skeleton goes into a bar and orders a beer and a mop.” But I mean on a loop. -Over and over again. I must say, you kind of expect a little more from Al Pacino. I’m kind of on your side here. I get it but I don’t want to admit that I get it.
hoseok is Old Money and has never worked a day in his life.
instead he’s very invested in charities and in the arts and never gets tired of attending balls and events of all sorts.
he also hosts a score of his own, so he has a large staff to help him around the house.
did i say house? i meant mANSIONS. plural.
the most social of all the socialites.
it’s no secret that jung hoseok lights up a room and his social affairs are always free of drama and scandal because he’s everyone’s unproblematic fave.
such a lovely employer too, he treats everyone fairly and often stops to have a short chat with his domestic helpers, i.e you.
everyone always wishing him a good morning/afternoon/evening/night when they pass him, because he’s very polite and often does the same.
and he remembers everyone’s birthdays and gives them all a decent bonus for the holidays he’s such a saint.
but he also makes The Absolute Worst puns all the fucking time and you’re all obligated to laugh with him rip
“you didn’t sweep that room with just a glance, did you?”
“haha no, sir.”
“another one fights the dust, i see.”
“haha yes, sir.”
“don’t make mária do the hoovering, she’s slovak.”
“haha okay, sir”
and if these genuinely crack you up then congratulations you’re already his favourite.
if not then you’re kinda really very cute anyway so he doesn’t mind.
and maybe one day he has an event to attend and you arrive late with his newly pressed tuxedo and he’s like ????? where were you
“sorry i’m late, sir. i over-swept.”
and hoseok fucking loses his shit.
good job you cleaned the floor earlier that day because he is fucking rolling on it.
now you’re definitely his favourite.
then he gives you a very straight face and asks “can you tie a bowtie?”
and you’re like “no ??????” because of course not how even
and he’s like “great! i’ll teach you!”
because he can do it just fine, he knows the technique, but he always messes it up on himself and it ends up looking sad and floppy.
so you spend about twenty minutes tying hoseok’s bowtie and cracking jokes until you master it, so that you can help him out in the future.
and because he really really really likes making you smile.
from then on he lets you practice regularly and you get very good at it and he’s like “ah, the student has defeated the master”
so you go “thank you, master.”
and oH BOY GOES RED AF
i mean it shouldn’t be a big deal you call him “sir” all day long but
young boys are addressed as “master” by the staff and he gets nostalgic and yet it’s oddly erotic and he’s so flustered help the poor man ????
nah you’re probably flustered too.
rip the both of you.
things are awkward after that.
he doesn’t want to make things awkward because he’s your employer and he doesn’t want to like accidentally harass you or anything.
but you know how he’s like really invested in the arts ???
and he attends every ballet production in the country at least three times.
and donates so much money to theatres and operas and dance institutes especially, so they make him a guest of honour at every opening.
and he was supposed to attend the season opening at the ballet with someone (there was no one lol) but they cancelled and now he has a plus one but no one to take with him.
and he knows you have a birthday coming up (in two months lol) and he’ll pay for the attire if you don’t have anything to wear but he would be honoured of possibly maybe you would want to be his date ???????
and of course you acCEPT ARE YOU MAD THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE
and rip jung hoseok ??? because you look amazing in evening wear and will you ever let the poor boy live???? how is he supposed to take his eyes off you long enough to catch the performance omg ????
and on the way there in the limo you tie his bowtie and he tells you all about the production you’re seeing and the choreographer which he knows personally and the primary dancer park jimin who he also knows personally and
and honestly he’s so passionate and over the moon with joy and it’s a delight to listen to him talk about the thing he loves so much you fall in love with him like ten times on that one limo ride bless.
and after the show you’re like wow best date ever ????
and you admit to him it’s gonna be weird going back to work for him after all of this because he’s treated you like royalty and tomorrow you’re going back to folding his socks.
and he’s like “i mean, not,,,,,,,, necessarily?”
“what do you mean?”
“you could just,,,,,,, marry me?”
and hAHA of coURSE he’s jOKING hahhhha a hah ah
but seriously no pressure or anything but he really likes you and would like to keep seeing you,,,,,,, in evening wear.
and if you want to keep working for him that’s cool too, but if you don’t then you don’t have to and if you wanna quit and sue him that’s fine he’ll settle out of court and give you a large severance package and he’ll write you the best references and
and you just gotta kiss him to shut him up.
and then you make out in the back of the limo.
imagine hoseok taking you to all the fancy events and showing you off.
showering you with gifts and pampering you, it’s A Lot ok.
and he’s the loveliest person on earth but he will punch anyone who dares suggest he’s “slumming it” with you no fucking way m8
and be warned if you’re attending a ball he’s gonna make you dance all fucking night but it’s okay because he’s a terrific dancer lucky u.
and if you want to travel he’ll take you anywhere you wanna go from lavish tropical resorts to the most remote mountain villages.

I know it’s a hard thing to think about. Because Michael is always there for Jeremy and would go to the ends of the earth for him. And he freaking loves him!!!
But what if the whole thing made him realize that being with Jeremy was bad? Not to mention his self-esteem is really low after what happened. Thinking Jeremy didn’t need him.
It starts off slow, Michael and Jeremy only hanging out every once in awhile, then Michael stops texting him, stops hanging out, stops talking at school, till Jeremy just never sees Michael at school anymore.
When Jeremy goes out of his way to confront Michael, saying that he was sorry. That he shouldn’t have let the Squip take advantage of him, Michael just snaps.
“Last time I checked Jeremy, it was YOUR decision to get rid of me. And YOU said the Squip was off that night. You can’t blame it all on the Squip. Jer, I wanted to be there for you. But I don’t think there is a place for me in your future. Go be with Christine. Be popular. Like you always wanted to be.”
“You hurt me. Jer. I can’t handle it. All I can think is to that night. All I can think is back to when I was looking straight at you. But you couldn’t see me. You didn’t want to.”
“… You know, I was actually in love with you. I looked at you and I saw the world. I was willing to do everything and anything for you. But now I just look at you and I think of all the bad parts about myself. Like how much of a loser I am, and how I’m just… forgotten. I can’t live like that.”
“I’m gone Jer. I can’t be your best friend Michael anymore. Not your player 2. You threw of that all away. Maybe life is a one-player game, and I need to learn how to play it. Bye Jeremy.”
And he does leave.
Jeremy just feels insanely guilty about it. Doesn’t think he deserves Michael as a friend. So he just leaves him alone.
But one day Michael apparently was driving while high and gets into an accident. Jeremy is Michael’s emergency contact.
When Jeremy gets there it’s revealed Michael didn’t suffer a lot of damage. And he is a-okay.
When Michael sees Jeremy. Jeremy almost expects him to be happy. But Michael just asks why he is there. Jeremy soon is crying, and he tells Michael how scared he was. He also tells Michael that he can’t imagine a life without him.
“Well, you seemed to have when you had the Squip.”
“That was then, this is now. I don’t care what you say. But I’m going to make things right! I’m going to make sure you know now how much I care, and fuck it, I’m going to make you fall in love with me again and this time you won’t regret it.”
“… Good luck with that.”
It takes a long time.
Like, a really long time.
Michael at first doesn’t really see the point. He is just really unmotivated. He just thinks that Jeremy is doing it outta guilt.
Jeremy just does his hardest to make Michael happy. All that his effort really gets is a small smile that never reaches his eyes. But it starts to get better with a laugh at a joke, a bigger smile, conversations, playing video games.
It takes so long for Michael to even consider Jeremy a friend again. Even longer for him to be okay with the nickname “Player 1”. But during this time, Jeremy ends up falling hard for Micheal. Seeing how much Jeremy cares for him, and how much Jeremy missed a lot of things about Michael like his jokes and his quirks. All of those take months to come back.
For the longest time as well, Michael tries to not have feelings for Jeremy. Convincing himself not to get himself hurt. But Jeremy about a year later decides to confess, leading Michael to tell him about himself forcing to not have feelings for him.
Jeremy convinces Michael to start going out with him. And Jeremy just showers all the love he can give. Hugging Michael, kissing his cheek.
It isn’t until one night when they finally beat Apocalypse of the Damned. Jeremy celebrates right off the bat. Jumping from the beanbag and doing a joyful dance. Smiling and laughing, Michael can’t seem to take his eyes off of him and Jeremy just grins at him. And Michael just feels his heart flutter for the first time in year and a half.
Michael jumps up as well and ends up pulling Jeremy into a kiss. And sure, there is still a lot of bad days for both of them. But they work hard together and live a happy life together
ana bear, can i ask you something? can you write little quirks and mannerisms you love about our shining babes? like, a eprsonal trait, a habit, all things you think define them (like Taem's magic hands and stuff)

Also wants to be a history professor (what is it with you NTJs?) and really egoistic and surprisingly shallow about relationships and...gross...but he's the smartest person I know. Like he wipes the floor with your brain if he doesn't like you.

Wants to be a nun or a teacher or both. Pure human soul. Tries to be as plain as possible but she still is always so pretty because she's so nice. Nods fervently during lectures and tells people they're beautiful all the time.
Surrounded by STPs and yet still lonely. Best friend is an ENTP, me. Thinks I'm a genius. Wants to marry an ISTP. Staunch Catholic. Addicted to rules and moral codes. Super, super sweet.
Always has friends over?? Like they must live in his backyard. Wants the spotlight on him all the time. Always gets lead roles in plays. Is a secret nerd who loves conspiracy theories.
