i don’t care about anyone’s sexuality. gay? straight? not important. what matters to me is the content of a person’s character. for example, i think your sonic oc could benefit from some more realistic flaws. it just seems kind of out there that he can only be killed when the planets are perfectly aligned
under the cut is a list of fics that folks in the haikyuu fandom read to remind themselves that there is good in the world. i hope that the list can help spread some positive energy during this tough time. thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions and helped to put the list together!
fics are arranged by ship and include ao3 link, author, length, and summary. please let me know if one of your fics is on this list but your tumblr/twitter/etc isn’t linked, and i can add it.

Kageyama can understand that, to some extent, although he doesn’t quite understand why that would extend to talking to him about volleyball, but fine. He can accommodate this, if that’s what it takes. He asks for Kenma’s contact information immediately.

Because when she smiles, when she’s laughing, it’s like all the planets and stars are aligned and it’s the greatest feeling in the world to see the person you’re in love with just being happy.
I’m in love with her. It’s a fact.
Because when she’s upset, when she cries, it’s like a knife being plunged into my chest, slowly twisting. It just breaks my heart to know that something or someone has punctured her heart and caused her pain. It’s a horrible feeling to see the person you’re in love feel so hurt.
I’d do anything to make her happy and I’d do anything not to make her cry. Because she is my heart and I want to be with her for as long as she’ll let me. And I want to keep it that way.
Kpop fans are so lucky compared to Utaite fans bc kpop idols are so active like they’re always uploading selfies and having fanmeets and dropping bomb ass hits that get millions of views and there are always funny videos of them being cute or speaking English and are just widely popular and active

What he means:
I know you're pining, but every cloud has got a silver lining. The leaves are parting now the sun is shining, and you're in my arms so the planets are aligning. My heart is strong, like a tree!

[iGOTARMY] GOT7 And BTS Interactions That Will Make You Believe In GOTBANG 170412
Idols are busy and hard working. They have little to no time for friends and family. But sometimes, because of common schedules, chart shows, or award ceremonies, groups get to interact with each other unscripted. These are the moments when fans get to see their idols’ seemingly normal side – just people being friends and hanging out. While there are many idols and groups who are close, this time we’ll take a closer look at the glorious friendship between two of the hottest male groups of the moment: GOT7 and BTS.
BTS having debuted in 2013 and GOT7 in 2014, their schedules overlap quite often, resulting in the most precious cross-group interactions. Performances, competitions, or random encounters – these are the most memorable GOT7 x BTS or GOTBANG interactions that have at least some iGOT7s and ARMYs believing in a world where a fandom called iGOTARMY exists.
Whenever one of the two groups happens to be in the audience while the other one is performing, things get a little… well let’s call it relatable. There was sit-dancing for entire performances, random dabbing, and just uncontrollable waving of arms and mouthing of lyrics. All of this has happened.
The most recent example: Jackson and BamBam struggling to contain their inner fanboys during BTS’s performance at the 2016 MAMA.
But that’s not all – they couldn’t handle their admiration for each other on many other occasions. More than once, members of both groups ended up cheering each other’s names, singing their respective songs, or dancing each other’s choreography. Probably the most accurate display of all of the above is their encounter on “5 Minute Delay,” where groups react to their performances on “Music Core.” There was shouting. There was cheering. It was beautiful.
When GOT7 and BTS meet on stage, there are greetings, hugs, and sometimes, probably when the planets are aligned in a certain mysterious way, a magic mixture of dancing, laughing, and fooling around. Legend has it that 2015 MBC Gayo Daejejun was one of those dates. It featured dancing Taehyung and JB, a shy Jimin, and in the background, the entirety of GOT7 and BTS. Add fancy suits and “Uptown Funk” and you have one of the best GOTBANG moments to date.
It was powerful, it was badass, it was 14 dancing machines — aka VIRTUAL BOYS — and people were screaming their lungs out. The dance performance featuring all 14 members only lasted about two minutes, but the fact that people are still talking about it more than one year later shows that what happened in these two minutes is very much worth your attention.
Of course when talking about GOTBANG interactions, we can’t skip their encounters at the annual Idol Star Athletics Championships. From sitting together and goofing around to giving us amazingly mischievous reactions when someone (looking at no one in particular, Jackson) misses in archery, the whole image seems as if they weren’t two separate groups but one super group with 14 members.
It seems as if an essential theme in this relationship between Rapmon and Jackson is low key dissing each other, from the backstage interview at the 2015 MAMA that’s basically just them teasing each other to the fact that they even created their ship name Rapson themselves (yes, seriously). There seems to be quite some emotional potential, at least on Jackson’s side, and trust us, if someone made a TV drama out of this, we’d watch it even before English subs.
If we didn’t know any better, we would think this was scripted. The golden Maknae and The evil Maknae. Kookie and Yugi. JK and YG. Nochu and Hit the Stage. The two ’97 liners have been spotted around town on several occasions. Jungkook actually explained on screen that Yugyeom is his closest idol friend. He even mentioned Yugyeom (and BamBam) in the thank you notes of the “You Never Walk Alone” album – long story short: if you don’t love this bromance by now, you might as well be a rock. Time will tell if this is a match made in heaven or if it will result in terror for the other members and despair for all fangirls and fanboys.
We’ll probably never know more about these because, YES and THANK GOD, idols do have a private life. There were certain incidents where GOT7 and BTS members talked about calling each other or even did call each other on air. We hope this is just the tip of the iceberg and their friendships sail happily into the sunset.
‘When you meet your soul mate, you remember,’ Greta says simply, and Jon looks insulted, but Greta always says things that she doesn’t realise offend others. Jon knows she doesn’t mean it. Greta’s now staring into space, eyes unfocused like she sees things the rest of us can’t. 'Planets align… the universe pauses… your lips hover over his, and you can almost taste him already. You almost know how soft those lips are going to be… full. Perfect.’
I feel myself slipping into her daydream. A voice rings in my head, an alarmed 'What are you doing?’ And then my own voice, trying to be cocky: 'Pitying you.’ Right there next to the tour bus. The urgency of our lips, the barely controlled want, the -
'See, he remembers,’ Greta says, smirking. I snap out of it. They’re both staring at me. I feel like I’ve been caught red-handed.

lana’s video for Love actually made me tear up at the point where the camera zooms in on her eye and we can see the glittering cosmos reflected back at us. this video might just be a cool aesthetic piece, or it might be the perfect conceptualisation of what it feels like to be “young and in love.” falling in love makes you believe in crazy things. logic is the monopoly of single people, who tell us that falling in love is an amalgam of coincidence and compatibility and social conditioning. everybody knows this - until you fall in love, of course. then the truth of the universe is unveiled to you. lovers emerge from the earthly dark into the loving glow of the sunlight. love transcends us far above the world; to a place where time ceases to exist, and the only gravitational pull is the infinite string between two beating hearts. suddenly, you see that every event in your life has been a stepping stone leading you to this person. all those whims and free choices, were actually the intricate weaving of the stars. and now that you have found this person, the soul that was born of the same stuff yours was, it feels like all the planets are aligned; the music of the spheres rings in concordant harmony; and your place in the universe is no mistake - all this time, you were made with intention. and with that realisation, comes the recognition of divinity. from thereon, every mundane moment - going down to the coffee shop, playing video games - is celestial. you navigate through the universe with new eyes, filled with awe and reverence. it might be a senseless theory, but it doesn’t matter that all of this is beyond human comprehension. it doesn’t matter that the people who manage to hold onto their sanity tell us we’re crazy. as lana puts it, so perfectly simple, it’s enough to be young and in love.
