I hope you like it!! ALSO HAPPY 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EXO (my ult)!!❤️❤️
When He First Sees You
Okay so I imagine first seeing Junmyeon at like a zoo
And he’d be with the giraffes and feeding them!! (cute x110)
Oh! He’d also like to take a selfie with the giraffe, but its so tol and he’s so smol sO YEAAHH
That’s when you notice so you casually walk over to the giraffes’ area
Only to feed the giraffes of but Suho would think you’re like his savior or something
He’d be like “OH THANK THE HEAVENS YOU’RE HERE. These darn giraffes just won’t let me––”
And you’re looking at him slightly amused because he looks so fit but the words that just came out of his mouth WERE SO CUTE (again, cute x110)
“Oh sorry, I should’ve introduced myself. My apologies. My name is Kim Junmyeon aka Suho for short, and currently I cannot seem to get this giraffe to compromise and get in the friggin’ frame!”
“I’m sorry to hear that, Kim Junmyeon aka Suho for short. Would you like me to actually take a photo of the both you??”
AND HIS FACE JUST LIGHTS UP AND HE’S LIKE “OK OK THANK YOU”
How He Asks You Out
So.. you ended up taking the photo with your phone instead of his..
Which is lowkey what Junmyeon wanted in the first place because he’s probably found his soulmate
I mean who else would offer to take a photo of a grown man who’s been arguing with a giraffe about a selfie?
“Does this look okay?”
“Yes yeah yes it looks perfectly fine! Thank you so much!”
“Here’s your phone back btw”
“Erm.. I think this is yours. You could just give me your number and send it to me, though.”
And you’re hesitant because 1.) was he trying to be smooth or 2.) did he not realize that he just asked for your number
It wasn’t until later in the afternoon when texts you “I hope this was smooth enough for you lol! I just wanted to ask.. you know how long a giraffe’s neck is? Well (even if you don’t) if you give me the chance, our could last longer. Right?”
Dad jokes already? You were hooked. Instantly.
First of all,,,, dad jokes for daysssss
“Babe babe babe! How do you make a kleenex dance??”
“YOU PUT A LITTLE BOOGIE IN IT.”
“JUNMYEON, THAT IS DISGUSTING.”
“IT WAS FUNNY THOUGH.”
I don’t really see Junmyeon as being a excessive pda type of guy
In public, there’d be handholding and small forehead pecks
In private, he’d cuddle you often and offer to carry you around the house on a piggyback ride
There’d be LOTS of gym selcas
Either it’d be a candid photo of him, you laying on the floor while he’s taking a selca, or a sweaty selca of the both of you after a hardcore parkour workout / exercise.
This is also the time where Junmyeon would have a bit of an adrenaline rush and only you could calm him (if you know what I mean)
To kinda conclude this whole thing, I think Suho would be a very mature partner. Marriage wouldn’t be too far away (he might even propose tomorrow who knows lol)! It’d be easy to picture family life with him and how he would handle becoming a father because he shows paternal-like traits already. Because of this, everyone would be excited for your near future together as Mr. and Mrs. Kim Junmyeon.
“Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps she won’t suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. But when that person looks back – and at some point everyone looks back – she will hear her heart saying, “What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days? What have you done with the talents God bestowed on you? You buried yourself in a cave because you were fearful of losing those talents. So this is your heritage; the certainty that you wasted your life.” ― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
The Importance of Taking Risk
It is easy to fall asleep in your training, and in your life, forgetting to take risks. As human beings, we grow comfortable and accustomed to things that are familiar, secure, predictable. However, without taking risk, we also severely limit our speed of growth. In fact, in some instances, we will end up regressing.
Daily Reminder: Shake things up! Tackle new challenges, do something that you’ve been avoiding. It is the things that make us uncomfortable that help us grow most!
Aided Blink - Knees playing up? Feeling your age? Can’t climb those ledges on those daily parkour workouts? With Aided Blink you’ll automatically always land on the top of any ledge you select!
Windslap - Does your three-year-old look sad because their paper windmill isn’t turning? Perhaps you want to keep your newborn amused when you have to be cooking in the next room? Windslap creates a super-light blast of wind that is guaranteed to briefly activate a wind chime or turn on the light in the next room! Comes in three colours.
Severely decrease spyglass magnification - never mind reaching for your reading spectacles! With this new ability you’ll be able to read the mail without asking the servants to bring it around the coffee table! (Actual spyglass not included.)
Push - always sick of your plants being nibbled by rats and cats? Perhaps your neighbour sometimes nicks a bottle of milk from your front door on weekends when they think you’re not looking! Then Push is the power for you! Give those pesky individuals a slight nudge which is almost definitely too soft to be blamed on you, but is probably noticeable enough to make them stop doing it! Works through glass windows so you don’t even have to get up from the couch.
Near Reach - does it always seem like the TV remote is slightly too far away? Grab objects between two feet and five feet away with Near Reach! Caution: Not recommended for use on containers of whale oil
Shadow Baby - always have that one annoying relative who’s constantly dissatisfied with your lemon meringue? How about that manager at work seems to time yon on your lunch breaks? Maybe you should try Shadow Baby! It transforms any adult into a shadow for five seconds, long enough to escape scrutiny for those precious moments of me-time! (Warning: does not work with fluorescent lights, incandescent lights, or indeed any type of artificial lights. Sorry, we don’t know why. Larry, make sure to edit out this part when we publish the ad for power upgrades, I’m just making a mental note here so I can balance out the text spacing on the poster. And btwLarry stop using Push on my Sokolov figurine, I know it’s you, no-one else in this department has an office in that direction down the hall and little Sokolov is always face down in my coffee when I come back from lunch
Do you know some guides for roleplaying a parkour athlete?
None that I found while browsing through all of the tags that I thought I might find one in. I’ll give it a go instead.
First, I think you should read this; it’s a WikiHow introduction to parkour in real life. There is a second WikiHow article that gives three different examples of how a person could get into parkour once they’ve found the will to do so and how to pursue those three options. Finally, a third WikiHow article that tells you how to train for parkour. Those are things that you, as the writer, need to know in order to make sure that your character goes about the basics correctly. It’ll also give you an idea of where they’d have to start out, so you get a better idea of what it takes to become a parkour athlete. Also, remember that these three links are WikiHow links, that means they are the basic of all basic and should be treated as such. You want to do more research than just what is in these three links.
Being into parkour also goes beyond the simple act of parkour. I’m seeing a lot of parkour video games, and I’ve seen it in media like movies and television. Your character might also like watching/playing those.
Here are some more links to real life parkour guides:
The information in this first section will provide you with a general knowledge of what it takes to be and become a parkour athlete, which is a good base of knowledge to keep in mind while writing your character’s biography and personal information and while playing them.
TLDR; Parkour is an extreme, natural sport that takes you into the outside world (be it city or in nature) to use what is already there as what is essentially an obstacle course that is created out of a combination of what is there and what your mind can make out of it. In order to be a parkour athlete, your character would have to have 1.) been introduced to it somehow 2.) seriously pursue it while 3.) remaining smart about how they do it. There’s a reason there’s a link for Nerd Fitness up there. “It’s inevitable that someone would connect the dots between Nerd Fitness and parkour. After all, parkour’s approach closely follows the precepts of the Nerd Fitness Rebellion.” Your character can train alone, with a friend, or with a group of people– which could be their friends or a group they found and joined.
Your character will have specific clothing for it (which might not seem that specific because you don’t need anything but comfortable clothing you can move in– though it should be remembered that covering your skin = stopping yourself from getting scraped up generally), they will train seriously outside of parkour itself, and unless your character was already an incredible athlete, they will probably find it to be much more difficult than they thought it would be and they may be surprised at how taxing it is. This isn’t something you just decide to do and are a master at it, this is something that you have to put a lot of time into. Anyone that rushes into things risks things like injuries, not even necessarily due to lack of skill just due to the fact that the body isn’t always ready to handle new things, so keep that in mind when writing their parkour story.
Now that your character is a parkour athelete, they will probably need to change their exercise routine. Parkour uses your whole body, and that means that your character may need to strength parks of their body that they hadn’t even thought about before. Here are a few links to parkour workout routines:
TLDR; Your character will need to decide on what their workout routine will look like, because you can’t just magically grow the muscles you need to be able to climb a wall using nothing but the power of your drool-worthy arms. Just like any workout routine, beginners will have to start out lighter and move up– but like previously mentioned in one of the links I posted in the first of these three segments on parkour, it is important to always be aiming to do more. You don’t want to push yourself to the point of strain, but you want to push yourself to raise your limits. A good idea is to always be aiming for 10% more; put 10% more effort into your workout every week.
Injuries are another thing to keep in mind when writing a parkour athlete. There is a really cool infogram here that is all about parkour injuries. The seven most common parkour injuries are listed and explained here.
Avoiding injuries probably sounds pretty great too, right? So here are some guides on that.
TLDR; Always have your character stretch out to avoid injury, just like in any sport. It isn’t something you can just decide to do and then run into it that very second. The seven most common parkour injuries are hand and foot bruises, shin hits, knee capitations, knee sprains, ankle sprains, shoulder and hip bruising from a roll, and rips on the hands. Watch out for those, and remember that knees carry the highest risk for injury. It’s as easy as twisting or overusing them. So keep those things in mind when writing parkour scenes so that you avoid writing scenes that depict them doing things that would cause them harm. Also keep these in mind in case you do want to cause them harm.
