Story-time with Sora and Noctis takes a weird turn. Noct may have competition for the title of Crown Prince of Napping!

Bonus time-jump panel in which Noctis takes his rightful place as the Naptime King:

Everyday Witchcraft

1. Meditate - still the mind, the breath, the heartbeat, open a channel through which the spirits can communicate if they wish to, listen.

2. Walk - honour the genii loci, notice the changing seasons, observe signs and omens, traverse the kingdoms of humanity, flora and fauna, give aid where it is needed.

3. Divine - build relationships with divinatory tools, sharpen skills, train intuition, ask questions, receive answers.

4. Invoke - the presence of spirits to assist in tasks, to protect on journeys, to grant guidance, maintain connections and uphold contracts.

5. Craft - use the hands to create, to construct, imbue each creation with spirit and purpose, a meal, a potion, a carving, a weaving, enchant the mundane and material.

6. Sing - the old songs, the power songs, the prayers, the chants, to heal, to awaken, to enforce, to ward, sing the sun to sleep and the moon to rising, sing in the bath, at the hearth, in the heart.

7. Read - widely and deeply, old and new, academic and popular, across boundaries and taboos, slowly and with full attention, take notes, research, reflect.

8. Write - record experiences, practices, thoughts. keep journals and grimoires, spellbooks and scripts, remember, elucidate, illuminate.

9. Draw - sigils and runes, symbols and signs. Carve, paint, scratch, blacken, redden, scrawl, in the sand, with salt, in the air, with chalk, ink, blood, charcoal, the mind.

10. Collect - herbs, woods, stones, feathers, bones, teeth, soil, the raw materials of natural magic, fill jars, boxes, bags, gather, forage, wildcraft, thrift, take that which is discarded, value the found over the bought.

11. Observe - the cycles of moon, sun, planets, stars, take heed with the eyes as well as the almanac, feel the sap rise, the birds migrate, the bulbs awaken, the leaves wither.

12. Renew - old spells, old wards, protections, and boundaries. Clean what is obscured, recast what has weakened, maintain what is working, replace what is lost. Tie up loose ends.

13. Communicate - with everything, stones, trees, spirits, the dead, that which grows in the garden and that which visits it, other practitioners, mentors, students, seekers, the younger self, the higher self, the wyrd. 

Autumn Leaves
Pyrrha Nikos Didn't Deserve it
Autumn Leaves

I wrote a song about Pyrrha Nikos from RWBY because I love her and she’s beautiful and only deserves the most beautiful things in life. I told @misshermitcrab​ forever ago that I wanted to write her a song and I finally did SO THIS IS DEDICATED TO JULIE. 
I hope you guys like if you listen! <3


Brilliant sun, where have you gone?
The nights are getting longer,
fear is setting in everyone.
Beyond the clouds, I see the world.
But from up here I have
never felt so alone.

Do you believe in destiny?

Autumn leaves fall into my hands.
Their edges cut me when they land.
Just another scar that I’ve counted.
Maybe this was not what I wanted.

Armed to the teeth and setting out.
But I don’t feel protected,
instead eclipsed by all my doubt.
A final kiss to find a light.
I’m sorry that you didn’t
realize it was goodbye.

Do you believe in destiny?

Autumn leaves fall into my hands.
Their edges cut me when they land.
This is how I’m meant to protect you.
Please forgive me for holding the truth.

Huntress, savior of the world.
Broken pieces of a girl.
Falling into my destiny.
This was the path laid out for me.

Huntress, savior of the world.
Not superhuman, just a girl.
Following the echoes of
the ones who showed me how to love.

Autumn leaves fall into my hands.
Their edges cut me when they land.
This is how I’m meant to protect you.
Everything was over way too soon.

the third full length bedroom witch album was released by Practical Records on April 21st, 2017 with limited edition tapes available of selectively chosen tracks from the album on the label’s bandcamp ~*~ .
this album is centered around processing trauma and using the term “injury” as a metaphor to describe our relationship to trauma as experiences that never really leave us.  Injury as separate from hurt, hurt as temporary, injury as insidious and everlasting pain

BTS Reaction to You Flinching During an Argument

You had been arguing about how he rarely have time for you anymore due to recording and practicing, when he raised his voice, quickly walking up to you, only to have you shrink back.

Seokjin: Jin would take your hand in his and apologize profusely for scaring you, insisting that he had overreacted about the situation and saying that you should just forget about it. He would still be upset, but he wanted to fix the problem instead of being sad about it.

Yoongi: “Y/N.” Yoongi would completely forget what he was upset about, but a whole new problem would form. He’d blame himself, convinced that he had done something wrong to make you act this way. His voice would return to it’s low, soft tone, and he would cautiously wrap his arms around you without another word.

Hoseok: He wouldn’t be able to hide his tears. He immediately wanted to pull you into a hug, but stopped himself, not wanting to scare you further. “Y/N…” He’d whisper, hurt evident in his voice. “You didn’t think I would actually hit you, right?”

Namjoon: Namjoon would want to talk to you about it. He’d sit you down on the couch with a safe distance between the two of you, not wanting to make you uncomfortable. “Jagi, what’s wrong? You know I would never hurt you.” CAN WE ALL JUST TALK ABOUT THIS GIF OMG

Jimin: Jimin would be the most upset. He knew he wasn’t the best at handling his emotions, and that bothered him, but when he saw you put your arms up over your face, that was enough. He would most likely spend the rest of the afternoon in his room, replaying the event over and over in his mind.

Taehyung: Taehyung would be hurt. He had reached his hand out to grip your shoulder when you had jumped back. He would stand there for a moment, hand outstretched before dropping it to his side. “Jagiya… I would never do that to you.”

Jungkook: Jungkook’s first thought would be, “who made you so afraid?” But he wouldn’t ask that, not yet. He’d look down for a moment before taking a small step closer. “Y/N, I promise you, I will never put my hands on you like that. I love you.”

*slides 10¢ and a stick of gum to you* Shance/ Langst headcanons? (Happy ending preferable but not needed) ( ◠‿◠ )

*pops gum into mouth and pockets the change* lol sure my dude!!!!

Langst-

-Lance is homesick, we know this, but he often pushes that aside in favor of making the others feel less shitty about leaving Earth. He comforts Hunk and Pidge with shitty memes and jokes and helps out by cooking food or helping Pidge with leads on her family, sometimes talks to Keith about what life was like in the desert, catches Shiro up on all the latest news since he’d been gone, little things really. But nobody ever asks Lance how he’s taking it, how HE feels about leaving Earth. He suffers in silence.

-Blue is probably the only one he tells about his fears and homesickness, since she’s always a good source of comfort and reminds him of home. Since she was on Earth for 10,000 years, she has images and videos of all kinds downloaded from the internet. It’s basically an astral plane type of thing, and Lance will sit and watch the videos of some old Vines and jokes on the good days, but when the homesickness hits him hard enough, she’ll pull out the videos of Varadero Beach and the oceans and forests and landmarks of Earth, and rumble soothingly as he cries watching the sunset.

-At one point she shows him an old video his Mama made, a family reunion back in Cuba, and he sobs his heart out but is so grateful because honestly his family memories had started to fade.

-Blue will often sing to him, though it’s more of a current of emotions than words, sounds of the ocean and the rain and whales, always deep and booming but soft and interspersed with the sounds of dolphins and seagulls. Lance wonders if the other Lions do this for their Paladins, but refrains from asking.

-Contrary to most tropes, Lance hates getting injured. But he has pretty bad luck, so it always ends up with him in the healing pods. Sometimes he’ll berate himself for being dumb enough to get hurt.

-Lance, at one point, stops talking as much and nobody knows why until Hunk checks a calendar and nearly screams. It’s Lance’s mother’s birthday today. And Lance was supposed to lead the song this year. Pidge is the one to hug Lance first, followed by Hunk who drags Keith and Shiro into it too, and Lance kinda just breaks down crying and everyone realizes exactly just how badly Lance misses home, misses Earth.

-After all, none of them have super big families like Lance does. Keith barely remembers his dad, Pidge only has her Mum, Dad and brother, Hunk has a sibling and two parents, and Shiro only has his mom and his grandparents. But Lance has so many siblings and cousins and aunts and uncles that he has a whole lot of people to love and lose back on Earth, which must be terrifying to know if the Galra ever do reach Earth, they might get hurt or worse.

-so they soothe and reassure Lance that Earth will be safe and after he’s calmed down they all make it their personal mission to help him as much as he’s helped them with their homesickness.

Shance-🖤💙🖤💙

-PINING BOYS, PINING BOYS EVERYWHERE!!!!

-Shiro has a surprisingly dirty mind, I’m not getting into details, but Lance’s l e g s. Step on him please-

-The first time Shiro hears Lance sing in the showers he is 100% positive he’s heard God himself.

-Likewise for Lance, he was pretty sure that hearing Shiro sing in Japanese was the hottest thing since the man’s pecs!

-Keith is 90% of Shiro’s impulse control (spicy Shiro has spicy ideas and Keith is Done™), but he also wants to punch the man in the face because “For fucks sake Shiro just ask him out already, because if I hear one more fucking sigh out of you I’m stabbing you in the dick you thirsty hoe-”

-Pidge finds out and uses it as blackmail to get out of chores until they get together.

-Thank Alfor the walls are soundproof, Lance is v e r y loud and Shiro is blessed ;3

-Hunk does N O T need to hear how Shiro does THAT like THAT, thank you Lance, please spare his innocence, tmi dude TMI-

-Pidge cannot stop her smug little smirk around Shiro after the first night he and Lance get spicy, because she was the one to threaten the Black Paladin into confessing after she tricked Shiro into practicing how he was going to tell Lance he liked him by recording the practice confession and telling him she’d expose him if he didn’t do it first.

-Lance finds out, but merely high fives the girl instead because he has zero regrets now and Pidge is the best wingwoman he could possibly have backing him up. (TBH Pidge was sick of the pining and decided to cut down the pine trees herself)

-Black approves, Blue is a bit wary but warms up to the Black Paladin and entrusts her cub to him, Black does the same with Lance.

-After-nightmare cuddles. Poor beeb needs to be held ;-; (especially after ones where he loses Lance to the Galra and the Druids ;^;)

-Meme Team™💙🖤 they will joke about memes for hours, Hunk always has to stop Keith from stabbing one of them. “ONE MORE DAT BOI REFERENCE AND I SWEAR-” “Keith please calm down-” “HERE COMES DAT RED BOI-” “*UNHOLY ANGRY SCREECHING*” “oh fuck, Lance run-” “AAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!” “*Pidge laughing as she records the entire thing*”

Notes

Everyone and their mother has done a version of this story in the last few days, but I got a few requests, so here’s my take!

————————————————————————————————–

Your heart sank when you heard his voice crack.

He recovered right away, which you knew he would, but the subtle look of disappointment on his face when the performance ended was obvious to you. He had been rehearsing so long and practicing so hard all week to make sure the performance was perfect; he had even stopped his band more than once to ask if he could redo a certain section because he knew he get it better. The last rehearsal before the show, he had nailed every single note but now, when it was live, he had missed one and you knew he wasn’t happy about it.

The crowd was still ecstatic when he finished and you knew that no one other than Harry was going to care about his voice cracking, but Harry was his own worst critic and you had seen the result of that more than once over the course of your relationship.

There had been a few nights – down in Jamaica – where Harry had come home from a long day at the studio and went straight into the sitting room to continue working on lyrics, even though you were in a bathing suit and preparing to take a dip in the private Jacuzzi outside your apartment.

“Harry, you’ve been at this for hours,” you would say, “Take a break and come swim with me.”

No matter how much you tried to persuade him by wrapping your arms around his shoulders or shoving your scantily clad body into his back or pressing kisses to his neck, he wouldn’t give in.

“M’sorry babe. I need to finish this.”

“I bet all the other guys have gone to bed. You’re going back to the studio tomorrow; I’m sure all the words will be the same by then.”

He would let out a slightly annoyed sigh and turn ever-so-slightly in his chair.

“I’ve been workin’ on this one for days, (Y/N). It needs to be perfect and I can’t get it where I want it.”

You had enjoyed your time with Harry in Jamaica – you really had – but it was nights like that where you worried about his well-being. Harry would work until he collapsed if you let him; that’s why you were happy he had surrounded himself with so many people who weren’t going to let that happen. More than one night, his bandmates had forced him to take a break and go back to the apartment for dinner and to spend some time with you. You hadn’t expected to see Harry all that much while you were down here, but those little moments during the evening were always nice.

Harry was much more worried about his album being perfect than you knew anyone else was, but that was just how Harry operated.

Which is why you knew he wasn’t going to be happy about missing that note.

Who You Belong To

Description:  Jungkook has noticed you flirting with Taehyung for quite awhile and has finally decided you need to be reminded of who you belong to.

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Smut

Word Count: 8647

Warning: Dom!Jungkook, daddy kink, spanking, minor breath play, thigh riding, hair pulling, punishment, possessiveness

A/N: This is a happy birthday present to @avveh who has been my sounding board for literally every one of these fics.  She helps come up with general plots (what little plots I have in these smuts), what kinks to throw in, even some of the dirty talk, so of course I owed her a birthday present full of her favorite things.

The entire idea for this smut started between the two of us when the Bangtan Bomb for Sope-me was released.  We are possessive smut trashy fangirls and created an entire scenario based on the moment Jungkook got water and looked at something with, what interpreted as, a jealous look.  This is the kind of friendship we have.  We feed each other’s delusions.

Disclaimer: I have never taken a non-science college class. Meaning, I have no idea how to take notes for humanities or social sciences. Not saying this method won’t work for that, just that I can’t guarantee it will. Also, this method is not about achieving pretty notes, only structured practical notes.

What you’ll need:

  • Notebook. I use a notebook. Most people I know use a notebook. Why should YOU use a notebook?
    • You won’t get as many handouts (if any) as in highschool.
    • Professors won’t ask to see hw in your notebook. For all they care, your notes could be a comic about the class. As long as you pass, you do you.
    • You don’t have as many classes in a day so even if you carry around notebooks, your bag won’t be all that heavy.
    • You can divide it into three sections: class notes, seminar notes/work and lab work. All in one for your studying comfort.
    • Professors WILL reference that formula from 3 classes ago and when you have no idea wtf they’re talking about, you can just flip a few pages.
    • Seriously, no one in your class wants to hear you snap loose leaf paper out of your ring binder.
    • And let’s be honest, your notes are going to get jumbled up any other way.
    • If you’re taking a continuation class and you’ll need to revise from these notes, it’s much easier to pull out a notebook than to look through the thousands of notes from all your classes and try to figure out which are the ones you need and what is the correct order.
  • Two pens, three tops. Blue for general notes, black for sections and the other color for subsections or underlining. Go for black for general note taking if you want to (I do it too sometimes) but blue strains your eyes less.

In class:

  • Structuring notes: not every structure works for every subject and professor so you should figure out a method for each one. That said, I usually start out with a basic structure and then tweak it along the way to better suit my needs:
    1. The name of the unit should be your ‘big title’. ‘ORGANELLES’
    2. Every ‘big topic’ (very easy to identify – usually the professor will make it really clear that you’re moving on to a different topic or it’ll be on the slides) inside the unit is assigned a number. ‘3. Mitochondria’
    3. Every ’big aspect’ of that topic is a subtopic. ‘3.4. Structure’.
    4. If there are even more sub subtopics, continue with the numeration system. Otherwise proceed to use bullet points for any enumerations. If there are enumerations inside these enumerations (wow enumerception), change your symbol for each level. Instead of bullet points you can use dashes, squares, spirals, Xs…
    5. The exception for this is when the enumeration corresponds to steps in a process. In that case, I number each step and circle the number.
    6. For each level you descend, indent your text. It’ll be easier to not get lost. Skip this if you’re working with a small notebook and you’re afraid of running out of pages.
    7. Sticky notes are your best friend. Does some random piece of info the professor just decided was important enough to be mentioned not fit into your very methodic structure? No problem, add a sticky note. Cute + calls attention to it, so you won’t forget.

anonymous asked:

What would Jooheon, I.M and Wonho's reaction be if they had to collaborate with their crush for a performance? How would they be throughout the period of practicing/recording together? I really love your blog btw! You're the best❤️

What they would be like if they had to collab with their crush (Jooheon, I.M & Wonho)

Jooheon; He’d be so nervous when he found out he had to do a collaboration with his crush. He had to write the lyrics with you, his rap parts and your singing parts, and practice the performance with you for a whole month. The first meeting would be a little bit awkward, but Jooheon’s friendly, puppy-like side would show, which would make you feel much better. 

I wrote some lyrics in the studio before, i did the first verse of my rap and the chorus that you’ll sing. Have a look, tell me what you think about it.

Jooheon would try and stay as professional as he could, though he could not hide his smile whenever he was around you. You two would get hella close and become mega best friends after that 1 month.

Originally posted by j00h0ney

I.M; The first meeting would be hella awkward. He just couldn’t help it. He’d try and pretend he wasn’t awkward, but it wouldn’t work. He’d be nervous, since he has to work with you, his crush. He’d make the first moves though and lead you through it, coming up with ideas and topics for the lyrics and the performance in general. Changkyun would be a bit shy the first few times, avoiding eye contact at all costs, but as time went by, he’d become more comfortable and easy going.

So uhm.. Can i have your number? So we can like.. Talk about this stuff when we’re not able to meet?

He’d be very supportive of you and all of your ideas, and he’d compliment you A LOT whenever you rapped/sang. He’d always try an make you smile or laugh, especially if you got stressed. 

Originally posted by garisanee

Wonho; This boy.. At first he’d be lowkey about everything and stay as professional as he could, though it would change very soon. You two had to come up with a choreography for the song you had to perform, and he’d lead the whole thing, easily explaining the moves for you that he came up with that matched the song. After a few meetings, he’d become a little shit and he would always stare at you, trying to keep eye contact ALL THE TIME. Even when you two were dancing in front of the mirror, he’d stare at you instead of himself, and he’d make it obvious. He’d also just ‘accidentally’ would brush his hand over yours or bump his arm against yours gently. 

This move is a little difficult, you have to have good balance for it. Let me show you. Spread your legs a little and extend your arm like this..

Wonho would place his hands on your hips gently, then on your arm, as he showed you the move. You’d feel his hot breath against your neck which would make you blush like crazy. He’d love it. He’d be a little tease. After the collaboration, he would ask you out for some coffee, a smirk on his lips and his eyes staring into your own. Smh.

[Words on the setting from my side]

- friends
- teaching
- activity
- kid
- joy
- gymnasium
- team
- happy
- sportive (?)

[Birthday surprise]
Before opening the setting monitor showed words asking us not to say おめでとう until instruction and then we shall sing Happy Birthday together. This was a surprise to Nino.

[Nino sensei’s teaching about unko]
- Nino-san’s jacket was green and his tie with green patterns.
- Nino asked if everyone had unko today. Aiba-san answered five times. Nino said it’d be problem then.
- In western world, high heels were made in order not to touch unko in street. Hat with brim was made because people in the past threw unko out of window (in time when there was no toilet?)
- Perfume was made to remove odour of unko.
- In Japan unko was seen as thing can be re-used and was used as fertilizers.
- The setting was to teach how food turns to unko. Sakurai-san was to demonstrate his typical day. He ate delicious meat. He was super cute when demonstrating going to toilet.
- ARASHI members dined together last night.
- Sho-san did “ho!” deep breath, the one they learned in himitsu. Aiba said it was reminiscing. Sakurai kept doing this.
- Sho-san did a lot `marius` gag e.g. itadakimarius when he started eating.
- After the demonstration Nino said Sho-chan arigatou.
- Unko’s shape can tell our health status. Banana shape is healthy, hard is lack of exercise, too soft is eating cold things or drinking too much beer, juice etc.

[Sakurai sensei’s teaching about manliness and femaleness]
- Sakurai-san’s jacket was pink and tie with grey and white pattern.
- He partnered with Sato Shori. They were double Sho combi and double S combi (both names were SS).
- The corner was to wrestle with Hamaguchi Kyoko. Sho-san asked Fuma to do it and Fuma said he wanted to do unko, and Sho-san said `no more now!` (giggle)
- Masaki-san was still sweating up till the second teaching. It seemed that the dome was bit hot.
- In VTR, Sho-san entered VS ARASHI’s green room to get members’ blood (by a nurse). When getting Masaki-san’s blood, Sho-san said `It`s red, right?` When getting MatsuJun’s blood, Sho-san said `Is it thick (same word in Japanese to describe MatsuJun’s face), and MatsuJun laughed ‘Not thick!’ When getting Nino’s blood, Sho-san asked him if he was happy and Nino said he was happy. When getting Leader’s blood, Leader shouted ‘Painful!’ The nurse failed to get the blood vessels several times, at last she managed to do it, Sho-san said 'Great~ So he is human~’ When getting Sho-san’s blood, he was the only who didn’t look at the needle. And he said 'Not painful~’ with a pitiful look.
- Sho-san said while people may have a sterotype on manliness and femaleness, in nature different species have different interpretation. For example for King Penguin, man is to feed the baby penguin while the female is to hunt for food.
- For human being, female may unconscious have consideration factors on choosing partners i.e. good voice. This may be related to immunity (sorry I didn’t take note on this part so I am not sure)
- The blood of members were sent to immunity test. Nino got almost full score, meaning he has good immunity. MatsuJun and Nino have two areas which were the same, there is only 0.01% for two persons to be the same in two areas, they were like miracle brothers. Leader and Sho-san got one area the same. Masaki-san had three out of four areas different from other members (the remaining area, all members were the same). So Masaki-san was different from them. Sho-san (?) said that so that Masaki-san can get along with anyone.

[Aiba sensei’s teaching about sports]
- Masaki-san’s jacket was navy blue with brown tie. He took the jacket off during his session.
- The word sports has association with the word deportare which means joyful and play.
- Masaki-san asked if animals play sports or not. Sho-san answered no, because animals do not comprehend rule. <– Very Sho-san-like way of thinking, I think.<br> - Then Masaki-san said lions play and the lost one will go away, there is some sort of rule in it.
- Masaki-san introduced interesting sports in the world, in Finland there is a game called `Transporting wife`, husbands carry their wives and run through barriers. The winner will get beer in equivalent kg of his wife.
- They had match on this game. Nino acted wife for ARASHI team. Sho-san tried various ways to carry Nino but failed, at last he carried Nino on back. Leader carried Nino with ohimesamadakko, the venue (including me) couldn’t be more excited. MatsuJun carried Nino like carrying mannequin in Shukudai kun. Masaki-san tried to carry Nino from behind but failed and they both fell. Masaki-san tried several ways to carry Nino but failed and they fell several times. At last Masaki-san succeeded and he was in full sweat. MatsuJun commented that the game was interesting out of imagaination.
- Masaki-san said that one can train `brain working nerve` (運脳神経) to help on do better sports. Examples of exercise to train such brain working nerve include walking while sitting on floor and using the butts to move forward.

[Matsumoto sensei’s teaching about nervousness]
- Matsumoto-san’s tie was green.
- He taught us way not to lose to nervousness.
- His corner ask one audience to talk to member. When staff searched the audience which took some time, Sho-san asked what if doing one time of `transporting wife`.
- MatsuJun listed out symptoms of nervousness, Masaki-san added `want to go to toilet`.
- MatsuJun’s corner was to let the members to experience nervousness. He asked Nino to player recorder (flute). Nino said he was not nervous, he entered Johnny’s because of playing it (during audition). But his pulse was recorded rising.
- Nino didn’t play very well and he fell into foams like MMDA.
- Masaki-san said 'Ninomi~’ when Nino fell.
- MatsuJun then said he also practiced recorder and wanted to play a song. He talked to Nino 'Kazu! Listen to it!’ But his playing was out of tone and Nino laughed so hard and said 'Jun-san! Jun-san!’
- MatsuJun wanted again but still out of tone and he laughed hard.
- At last the song came out to be birthday song. We sang it to Nino. The birthday cake was strawberry cake with 34 candle. 3 is pink and 4 is yellow.
- Nino said he’ll start doing sports coming to age 34.
- Right nervousness can make us perform better.
- Athlets learn to control nervousness by setting up routine, like some actions you decided to do before a game and when you do it you can concentrate.
- MatsuJun taught us 'WakuWaku routine’ there were four steps: 1. jump twice to straight your body 2. breathe slowly 3. look straight 4. straight your hand, circle two times, and fingers down. Just like 'ARASHI, ARASHI, for dream’.

[Ohno sensei’s teaching about tears]
- Leader talked about an episode of him and his teacher in primary four. There were regrettbale tears and happy tears.
- Leader said he cried when watching the finale of Hanzawa Naoki, but during testing he didn’t.
- During test it was found that when one cries, the stress level will go down. Crying helps one alleviate stress and relax mind. It is a good way to change mood.
- Leader said animals don’t cry.
- 5 x 10 in 5 x 10 con was broadcast because many fans mentioned it during voting. The venue was full of appraise when Sho-san appeared. After the video Sho-san joked that he was really slim that time.
- Leader said he didn’t expect a full version will be broadcast.
- Masaki said it is a good group (as depicted in the video).
- MatsuJun said that in the VTR Aiba-san tried hard throughout the song to hold his tears while at last he smiled. It was good. Love you! (To Masaki-san). And Masaki-san answered Thank you.
- Leader said that crying is actually a resonance with others’ feeling.

* Sorry I have not crossed checked with other repo. I took handwriting note. Please feel free to let me know if I have repo anything wrong. Thanks.

Add: During closing Sho san did two times disco star byebye. And Masaki san did one disco star walk. And when they entered the door, since the camera was filming Nino, Masaki san who needed to cross in front of them bowed to walk in order not to bother the filming.

The Reality of Dating Hoseok…

  • *cue desiigner’s panda instrumental*
  • Because rapper wonho and his 🔥 can never be forgotten.
  • Alright, but on a serious note, being with hoseok is like…it’s just… incredible.
  • This man cares about you so much, and he doesn’t go a day without showing you as best he can.
  • Don’t be deterred by the fact that he doesn’t want to get married, because this doesn’t mean that he takes relationships lightly.
  • In fact, out of all of monsta x, hoseok is the one who puts so much into his personal relationships. (they all do, okay)
  • Sometimes he tends to fall into the belief that he’s “not enough” or he “can’t express himself” for you, but my god, he couldn’t be more wrong.
  • Unbeknownst to himself, he expresses his feelings in the most simplest of ways. it’s almost like an art form:
  • The way he stares at you, the way he holds you, the way he gives you 100% of his attention whenever you’re speaking, the way he smiles at you, the way he worries about you…everything he does is profound in its own right.
  • And it’s a shame that he can’t recognize this. sweet humble bby~
  • He’s another sensitive one, and he doesn’t see the point in hiding it.
  • If he cries, you cry, and vice-versa.
  • Adores his mother so much, and you nearly choke up when he confesses that you’re the two most important figures in his life, bless.
  • He’ll do anything for the two of you tbh.
