❝What happened was Kim Hansol of Topp Dogg did an instagram live where he had tears in his eyes and was talking about wanting to kill himself and wasn’t being careful next to a busy road and kept like going on and off the road and not really paying attention to any cars and his friend commented genuinely scared because Hansol wasn’t answering his phone at all a few of his friends are saying they’ve gotten a hold of him and he’s okay now but still
If you don’t know Kim Hansol he is truly an amazing person not only is he a very talented dancer and singer he is very funny, he has an adorable laugh and smile, he’s an amazing writer and artist, and he supports the lgbt+ community and has ranted to homophobic comments on his instagram before about needing to accept people no matter who they love. He also is very woke about poc issues, is a huge fan of Rhianna and knows better than to say the ‘n’ word and actually got offended once when people thought he was going to say it when he was singing along to a song. He also wears the butterfly bracelet showing support for the Japanese victims of sex slavery during WW2. Also butterflies are attracted to him and if ur a somewhat spiritual person like I am then u know what that means.
All in all he’s an amazing rare type of person and he deserves to live a long and happy life and even if you don’t stan him or Topp Dogg please support him now in his time of need. His instagram is official_marykikoif you want to send him kind messages, he is obviously fluent in Korean, knows a fair amount of English, and is studying Mandarin for those of you that do send him messages.
Because They Can (Holy trinity x FemReader) fluffy drabble
(( gif not mine - cutes ))
(A/n): ahhhh kill me
Request! Fem!Reader is a popular gamer who collabs a lot. After several hate comments about how “a girl can’t play videogames,” her friends Mark, Felix and Jack cheer her up through a Skype call. If you do this request, I would really love it if you’d tag me though I understand if you would prefer not to :D
Warnings: lmao swearing
“I DON’T UNDERSTAND.”
“JUST GO AROUND THE BEND.”
“THAT’S LIKE THE SKETCHIEST THING I COULD DO.”
Not being able to coordinate yourself, your character ended up going backward by your control. You did not, in anyway, trust the front bend. Regardless of what Felix was trying to tell you.
You ended up dying.
“Oh, for fuck sake.” you grumbled, allowing yourself leeway to fall back in your chair.
“What,” breathed Felix “did I tell you.”
Together, Mark and the Irishman laughed heartily and looked into their set up cameras. You couldn’t help up pout at their joyous outbursts, hearing Felix tune in as well.
“I don’t know!” you began to defend, sitting up right again to reload the game.
“If I were to go down the front bend, I would’ve gotten jumped by 1A. I mean, they have lighter weaponry, but they had more soldiers.”
Beginning to mutter, you finished with “2B had less people so I thought I could just… slip by.”
Mark spit a bit before he laughed again, and said:
“I don’t think that’s how that works, hon.”
You only scoffed and challenged him with a “We’ll see.” before starting up a new map and inducing them to join.
Though the game had already started, and Jack and Felix were continuing commentary; you were slightly distracted by the comments of your stream.
Something’s about girls and games.
“Jack, if you round the corner onnnn…” you drawled for a moment before making up your mind “your second left, there is spare ammo in that wedge.”
“For sure?” confirmed Jack, clicking away at his mouse.
“Yeah, I remember. But, don’t pick up all of it, you won’t have room in your pack left.” you explained further “Utilize the space as much as you can so that you can pick up things like torch batteries. Yes, you will need them in the third map; second half.”
Mark seemed to be confused for a second, peering into his camera lens “Have you played through this before?” he asked.
“No.” you answered “You can just assume, because in that map, the only places to ‘hide’ in are the forest caves. Which are dark.”
Mark and Jack pushed out a chorus of ‘oh’s and thanked you heartily. Felix and yourself laughed, and you allowed yourself to glance at the chat once again.
“Should we take maybe five minutes to read over some things in the chat?” you suggested. The three boys agreed.
“Suuure thing.” sang Sean. Quickly, he leaned back in his chair and stretched himself fully; making inhuman groans with his mouth. You winced quaintly and chuckled.
“Uhhhmmm..” Mark sounded uncomfortable “these aren’t very appropriate.”
You were struck by confusion at first, offering your lens a childish look. You then checked, and read several comments in the below chat.
‘she’s pretty dumb for getting killed so easily lmao’
‘idiot move (Y/n)’
‘why girl’s shouldn’t play video games ^^^ they will get you killed smh’’
‘airheaded bitch wtf’
Well, shit. You wouldn’t have guessed people were still this immature. Have to admit though, you were a little peeved they totally bypassed everything you had just said.
“They mean me…” you mumbled half hearted.
“Yeah,” Felix said, sounding detached “they do.”
The four of you kind of sat in an uneasy silence. The chat slowed, some viewers even slightly apologizing.
‘yea and? now get her off the stream ffs’
Mark was the first to admit how rude that was, giving his camera lens an uneasy stare. Jack followed suit with a disapproving look- the kind that tore out the hearts of his viewers.
Felix- well Felix killed it. He went on a lengthy rant about how sexist the comment was and how much of a douche that made them for saying it.
He went full rage.
“Do you want to… continue the stream?” you mumbled, silently hoping they would say no. You were alright, just feeling a little defeated at the moment. You felt as though you couldn’t hold yourself in front of any audience any longer.
“Not really.” said Mark, still glaring at his camera “Not at all…”
“Not anymore, I don’t.” agreed Jack.
The atmosphere hung thickly around the situation. Countless times, viewers that were actually trying to enjoy the stream apologized for the words of the ignorant. You almost felt bad.
But not too bad when you reached up and shut down your stream recording camera.
Felix, Sean and Mark did the same.
Silence. The skype call and webcams remained.
“(Y/n) don’t be sad.” said Felix. He smiled at you.
You managed your own grin and told him you weren’t sad. Afterwards, you thanked him for standing up for you.
“Don’t be a sad pupper.” giggled Mark effortlessly. He was really, heavily worried. Though, the male wasn’t sure it came across in his voice.
“No, no I’m not sad… defeated maybe.” you clarified.
Felix was a little heart broken. You were one of his closest friends, he didn’t need to see- or hear you sound so… deflated.
“Well they are just fucking… fucking dickholes.” he demanded stiffly.
“I swear to god, if any other small brained, chapstick looking mother dickbag says one more thing, I’m moving to America and starting a rally.”
You laughed quietly at the Swede’s declaration “Mother dic-”
That made you at least chuckle a little, along side Jack and Mark. You were glad to be charmed by Mark’s deep falsetto of a laugh and Sean’s warm welcoming giggle.
“Hey hey don’t worry, she already lives by me. I’ll punch everyone in the face and then give her a hug.” stated Mark.
“I’ll regulate who can and cannot comment of her videos- only the very best may speak to her.” offered Jack, sounding proud.
You giggled some more, joined by the entire group.
“You guys are like my protection squad…” you uttered, filling with joy at an alarming rate.
“Well I mean,” said Jack.
“If we aren’t-” continued Felix, as he laughed.
“Who will be?” Mark finished, winking into his webcam.
“Only my three knights.”
I have given up on doing them in order. As long as I get them done so I can allow requests again, I’m fine
People who answer “single payer healthcare” every time a problem with the U.S. healthcare system is brought up are part of the problem.
Mashing the SPH button every time the grownups are talking simplifies the conversation about US healthcare to a useless degree. SPH is the goal, but just injecting those three magic words into every conversation does nothing to address the complexity and nuance, and only allows the person saying it to feel good. Most of them are just as uneducated as people who want it to remain a for-profit system.
If you are in favor of SHP, as every sane person should be, then you need to get your hands dirty and educate yourself on some things. Here, I’ll start you off:
1. Torte reform. Want to curb over testing and over prescribing? Torte reform. Doctors need to be able to not worry about being sued because they missed your zebra or something unrelated to what you saw them for, and they need to feel comfortable saying, “No, Barbara, you can’t have a zpak for your virus”. TORTE. REFORM.
2. The cost of med school. As it stands, most students leave med school with 300-400k in debt. As single payer statistically speaking involves a drop in pay, this becomes untenable. They should not be paying a mortgage when they get out of school.
3. Residencies are underfunded. Doctors can sometimes come out of school, with the debt mentioned above, and not be able to match into a residency and finish their training.
4. Doctor shortage. 2 & 3 would help address this, but if we want to switch to SPH we need more doctors to handle the load, otherwise you’ll be waiting weeks to see one. Plenty of smart, potentially qualified people go to a different field because they don’t want to take on the crushing debt.
5. Preventative care. The whole conversation around this needs to change, to emphasize it over emergency care. Treating stage 1 cancer is cheaper than treating stage 4. 2, 3, and 4 are related to this. A heavier primary care load means we need more primary care doctors.
6. Transparency of pricing. Everyone involved in the process, especially doctors, need to know what things cost. This also goes towards over testing (Noticing a pattern? It’s all connected.). Right now that’s not the case, and to avoid being sued, expensive tests are probably being ordered in excess of what is necessary if there’s an efficient cheap one.
7. Profit limits. Now, I tend to lean more capitalist than most of Tumblr does, so I don’t have a problem with some profit being made. BUT. There needs to be a limit to how much drug companies, hospitals, and insurance companies can over charge. That could be a flat %, I don’t know. But it would definitely help limit the expenses and how much is paid in general (which makes it easier to switch to SPH.). Drug companies especially.
8. Doctors need to be educated about how the admin side works (thanks @md-admissions for that one.) so they can be better prescribers and be more aware of what it’s like on the other side of the fence. Here’s the quick and dirty: Dr. dxs and codes for that. –> treatments are added in the form of HCPCs –> After the appt, stay, etc. is over the billers charge the insurance company, after going through a whole host of corrections. Mostly because of the next step, and because you can only use certain ICD codes with certain HCPC codes –> bill goes to a clearinghouse, whose only purpose is to check it for errors. It’s an automated system that will reject for completely minor things. Bill is either accepted and sent to the payer, or rejected and sent back to the provider for corrections –> Biller performs corrections and resubmits. This part can literally go on for months, but it’s eventually sent to the payer, or the exasperated provider gives up –> once at the payer (insurance demon I mean company), they look it and either pay it or reject it. Often they refuse to give you more reason for the rejection than an arcane code. If it’s medicare you may or may not get a human-readable report. It’s a crapshoot if you get a 277 or 999, as far as I can tell. If the payer rejects it sometimes they won’t even discuss it with the provider, and insist you use the clearing house as a go-between. They look for any reason to reject and providers lose *millions* to this BS. –> After all of this, the balance is either written off or forwarded on to the pt.
9. Eliminate clearing houses and insurance companies. This would happen as a by-product of switching to single payer, but none-the-less, it still addresses the problem of administrative waste that would still need to be watched out for under a SPH system. Clearinghouses are useless. People who do the job of checking the coding and whatnot tho (coding is important and necessary, because it allows for tracking of illness for stat reasons but also because that’s how they know what to pay.) could be transitioned to the same job in a SPH system.
Ok this isn’t exhaustive, but I think it’s a good start.
So please, SHP people, before you go beating that drum make sure you’re ready to address the complex mess that is American healthcare because I’m tired of listening to your smug assertion of “single payer would fix this” and I agree with you. It’s lazy and uninformed.
Harry and Ron were SUPPOSED to be roommates but Ron fucked up and forgot to request him
On move in day Harry bumps into this asshole who’s bitching about someone touching his “imported scarves”
Harry doesn’t have a lot to unpack so he’s already set up when that same asshole barges into the room. He doesn’t even notice Harry as he
orders the poor volunteers around, telling them how to set up and “that
doesn’t go THERE what are you, an animal???”
When the storm clears Harry just stands there blinking as Draco finally
notices him. He offers him his hand to shake with his signature
“Malfoy. Draco Malfoy. And you are…?”
Harry reluctantly takes it. “… Harry Potter”
Throughout the school year they’re very short with each other, usually
hanging out with other groups. They still respect each others rules and
lifestyles within the dorm, but rarely ever talk.
One night, late into the year, Draco comes in shit faced drunk while Harry is studying.
He starts crawling all over Harry on the bed and ends up laying in his
lap talking about how everyone wants to be friends with him because of
his father and how sometimes he doesn’t even like the people he hangs
out with and stuff like that
After his long rant they just kinda sit there and suddenly Draco looks
up like “You’re really hot you know that? Like suuuper hot. That’s why
all those girls are after you. But you’re so stupid you don’t even
realize it. Honestly.”
He kinda goes on about how hot Harry is and how sometimes he wants to
make out with his stupid face and how the way his expressions are on a
day to day basis is practically killing him but then Draco starts
falling asleep mid-rant and just passes out on Harry’s lap.
Harry just sits there in stunned silence before sliding out from under Draco and going to Rons to spend the night
Draco wakes up feeling horrible and he doesn’t remember a lot from the
night before. When he sees he’s on Harry’s bed and Harry is gone he
starts panicking like “fuck fuck FUCK what did I do??”
Later that night Harry comes back and they exchange awkward “heys”
before Draco gets all formal saying he’s sorry if he said anything out
of term or caused any trouble
Harry just laughs like “you’re fine its cute the way you act when you’re drunk”
Draco is internally screaming at "cute” but he’s like “nevertheless I should not have imposed you-”
Harry interrupts him like “dude enough you don’t have to act so up tight with me I’m not gonna judge you”
And after a bunch of back and forth they’re suddenly criss crossed on
the floor talking about their stupid aunt and uncle or how strict their
houses are and they’re up talking until 2AM and somehow Draco ends up in
Harry’s lap again ranting away and Harry is playing with his hair, only
stopping when he agrees with something (“RIGHT?? How stupid is
There’s a small pause as they catch their breath and wind down a bit
Draco closes his eyes while Harry combs through his bangs before asking “So last night I just ranted about my friends at you?”
Harry chuckled and makes a mysterious comment like “among other things”
“Like what?” Draco is sweating now oh god what did I say to this beautiful boy
“Apparently I’m hot and I don’t even realize it”
Draco’s hands are on his face because he’s beet fucking red and Harry is laughing trying to pry them away
“don’t worry, don’t worry! I thought it was cute-” “don’t make fun of
me!” “I’m not! Really! It was adorable! To be honest, I think everything
you do is adorable” “OOHMYGOD PLEASE STOP”
and they both act like total fucking dorks until Harry manages to get
Draco’s hands out of his face and plants a weird upside down kiss on his
Harry half-expects him to get embarrassed, but after a beat Draco’s
pulling Harry back down with messy kisses and reposition’s himself so
he’s straddling Harry’s lap
They’re wrapped around each other, Draco holding himself up so he can curve Harry’s head back and force his mouth open
Harry’s clawing at his back, about to slide his hands down to grab
Draco’s hips when there’s a loud knock on the door (“are you fucking
kidding me” goes through both their minds)
Ron’s coming from a party, drunk, trying to get Harry to go with him. Harry just takes Ron back to his dorm instead.
He expects Draco to be asleep when he gets back, which he is.
But on Harry’s bed.
Deliberately leaving space for Harry.
For the rest of the year they switch off on cuddling and making out with each other on
different beds. Ron finds out at the end of the year and is more upset
about how he could have half-dormed with them since they had an extra
bed than the fact they were secretly dating all that time.
I think I’m in love with muggle AU’s of drarry. Also, make out scenes are my life. Fight me.
Overall I really enjoyed Homecoming. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker was a lot of fun to watch in Civil War and really comes to life here. He’s just a giant dork who wants to do the right thing! (sound familiar?) The supporting cast was quite lovely too, especially Liz and the Vulture. The relationship he has with Peter has to be one of the most fun and dynamic ones we’ve seen in a really long time.
That said, I need to vent about Tony’s “mentor” role to Peter. Tony doesn’t have nearly as much screen time as the promotional material would suggest, but they keep advertising his role and involvement with Peter as super important. I’m pretty anti-Tony tbh, so I won’t be kind here. That said if he is your fave, and you don’t feel like reading any negativity, you’ll probably want to skip this.
Okay… can we just think about the fact that Zuko and Mai were literally 13 when Zuko got banished… 13…
Who the fuck has a serious, healthy relationship or is in love with someone at the age of fucking 13. And then he was gone for 3 years. So did these two even know who the other person was? I’m just really thinking about how he came back and suddenly they’re dating again and it shows that these two have no clue who the other is. Like you can’t love someone without knowing what kind of person they are. What I’m basically saying is this relationship was entirely built on lust and Zuko and Mai aren’t compatible in any sort of way, definitely not after those three years Zuko was away and finding himself. Their relationship was forced and even then shown on many accounts to be unhealthy and abusive. He did what was right by turning away from the fire nation which was by the way the biggest terrorist threat in the world, and Mai spit in his face that he was “betraying his country”. Yeah okay. Super healthy relationship here.
‘I like it.’ Harry returned, pulling food from the brown bags and handing things to her. Zara noticed the note of extra jalapenos on the burger that Harry handed to her and she smiled, pleased Harry had gone with it and not thought she’d regret it like others had tended to.
‘Ketchup?’ She asked hopefully.
‘And mayo.’ Harry told her proudly handing the sauce sachets to Zara.
‘Wow Grim really didn’t forget anything huh?’
‘Heyyy.’ Zara snapped her head to Harry at his response. His face was a picture of offence and she had to try not to laugh. ‘I remembered from the restaurant actually.’
im happy that the movie is bringing more people in and the tag is more active and more people are contributing and spreading the chaos walking love (read: pain) and im glad that tom has that fan base who are now getting involved but with all of that said
I’M SICK OF THE TAG BEING FULL OF TOM HOLLAND WHEN IT’S ONLY VAGUELY OR NOT EVEN RELEVANT TO CHAOS WALKING AHHHHHHHH
I NEED MORE EDITS AND THOUGHTS AND IDEAS AND LESS TOM HOLLAND SHIT
legit tho, I do understand the frustration people have when their original work doesn’t get noticed. i feel the same, despite not putting much of my original work out in the internet in the first place (I’m nervous about sharing things before they’re at a certain level but i digress)
but what annoys me is when people just…constantly complain about how no one pays attention to their original work and only looks at their fanwork?
my question is….what were you expecting?
We all know why we’re here for fanwork first. It’s because we already have an emotional connection to those characters, and most of the time, we’re already specifically looking for content related to those characters. It’s easy. It’s relaxing. We know the characters, we know the plots and settings, and it’s just a nice way to unwind with things we already know we love. There’s less mental work that has to be done because don’t have to reintroduce ourselves to anything, it’s just…it’s a safe space. It’s a comfort zone.
Original work? That’s harder. Of course it has to happen sometime before you can go looking for fanwork, of course you got into something original before you got into the fanbase, but once you find a comfort zone, it’s easy to stay there where you’re already having fun and you already know what you like. Getting to know someone else’s original stuff when you’re already online for the fan stuff is extra work during a time where you’re really just here to relax.
So yeah, it sucks that original work doesn’t get as much attention. But if you get into making original stuff, you have to understand that it’s an uphill battle and you have to be willing to put that effort in. No one owes you anything, much less their attention. Just because you make something doesn’t mean the world owes it to you to give you the attention you want.
Original work is work. Not to say that fanwork isn’t work either, but to act like the two are interchangeable is flawed and is setting you up for disappointment. You want your original work to be noticed? You have to work for it, you have to work as hard as those people who made the stuff that gets fanwork already worked. Sitting around and bitching about how no one looks at your original work is nothing more than self pity and entitlement.
You want attention? Put your nose to the grindstone and make your thing something that people make fanwork for. It’s not going to be easy, and if you thought it was going to be easy, you’re in the wrong line of work.
so I recently hit 500 followers and it may not be that much but I’m really proud and I love every single one of you! Thanks for putting up with me I know I can be very annoying and at times problematic and I’m glad that you’re all still here.

I’ve been around for ages in tumblr but I joined the football fandom exactly a year ago maybe a bit more and I’ve never been happier so thank you to all!
I would like to shout out the people who I couldn’t miss following for the world, some of you are mutuals of mine, some of you are not but following you makes me really happy and I want you all to know it. Special mention to all my madridista followers/mutuals who are still here, there are not many of you left but if you put up with me you’re really amazing and valuable and I want to thank you especially bc my harshest rants and comments have been about your club and sometimes you, that doesn’t mean I love you.

Note: This little bit here has been my headcanon for a good few months and a part of me wishes that I had posted it during Pride Month, but I didn’t because I’m an idiot. I don’t have a lot of experience with “coming out” as I don’t fall under the LGBTQA umbrella, but I do think that Emma and Killian would most certainly not care if their kid was. I was supposed to be working on a Wes request and a Harrison request, but my Beth muse was going so I decided to follow through with it. I will work on Wes tomorrow and hopefully post it by tomorrow night. Anyway, thank you @welllpthisishappening for listening to me babble on and on about these children. I would be lost without you. Available in AO3 flavor here: [LINK] Summary: Beth Jones has been going on a lot of dates, butEmma and Killian aren’t entirely prepared for the bit of news that their fifteen year old daughter drops on them over breakfast. Rating: T Word Count: 2,900+
Killian Jones loves his daughter with everything in his heart, but these days he misses when she was a little minnow in his arms who wanted nothing more than to splash around in the waves, fiddle around with his hook and giggle against his chest as they watched whales break the ocean’s surface while taking the Jolly on the joy ride.
Now, she’s a full-fledged teenage girl, no longer sweet and adorable, but clever, gorgeous and maddeningly charming with a penchant for tight fitted clothing and low neck lines that blatantly show off more cleavage than Killian is comfortable with. At fifteen years old, Beth Jones is both Killian’s pride and joy and his worst nightmare. There are days where Killian is pretty sure he’s going to suffer from aneurysm due to half of the outfits she puts on. Even worse is that he now catches men of all ages blatantly staring at his little girl. He nearly killed one of the dwarves who had been checking out at his daughter’s ass in the grocery store before his wife stopped him. It doesn’t help that she’s also aware of the staring and sometimes even encourages it with a flirty wink and an all-knowing smirk that gives him a sense of deja vu.
Now boys hound her at all hours of the day. Text messages, phone calls and little notes start cropping up all over the place. One boy who had been working as a bus boy at Granny’s even had the nerve to ask her out while they were eating together as a family. He could barely contain his look of disdain while Beth calmly told him she was unavailable and to ask her some other time. Harrison looks as horrified as Killian while Wes and Neddy tease their sister on how popular she is.
“Jeez, you cannot even eat without getting someone’s number,” Wes snickers. “And I thought I was the gorgeous one in the family.”
“Shut up!” Beth hisses under her breath. “It doesn’t mean anything.”
She says it doesn’t mean anything, but half the time she humors these idiots and lets them take her out for dinner, to the movies and even to the park. Killian doesn’t understand it and doesn’t want to. He just wants it all to stop.
“She’s fifteen, Killian, she’s allowed to date. I don’t remember you giving Henry, Harrison or Wes this much grief when they started dating,” Emma comments after listening to him rant about Beth’s latest date at the movie theater with Dean Kelleher. Dean is two years older than Beth and his parents were some sort of minor nobles back in the Enchanted Forrest. Killian doesn’t care if the boy’s parents were Olympian gods, no one is worthy of his daughter.
“That’s different!” Killian exclaims. “She’s”- “Your little girl,” Emma interrupts him with a teasing smile.
“Your little pirate princess. Your little buttercup. Your minnow. Shall I go on?” she asks him, looking every bit amused.
“Swan…” Killian gives her an irritated look.
“Killian, like I said, she’s fifteen, not three. She’s going to grow up someday. Pirate princess is possibly gonna find a pirate king in the future and you can’t handle it.”
GHOST’s TOBIAS FORGE To Publicly Unmask Himself For First Time During Swedish Radio Show Appearance
GHOST lead singer and founder Tobias Forge — who performs as Papa Emeritus — will publicly unmask himself for the first time since the band’s formation for an upcoming appearance on “Sommar i P1”, Swedish radio channel P1’s daily one-man show which has aired every summer since 1959.
Each ninety-minute episode of “Sommar i P1” features a well-known Swede talking without interruption about whatever he or she likes, as well as choosing all the music for the program.
Forge stated about his August 17 appearance on “Sommar i P1”: “I’m going to talk about my background and about how things never quite turn out the way you think they will.”
Forge recently officially revealed his identity while responding to a lawsuit filed by four former members of GHOST, who accused him of cheating them out of their rightful share of the profits from the group’s album releases and world tours.
In his court documents, Forge — who had previously played in several other rock bands, including REPUGNANT, CRASHDIET, SUBVISION, MAGNA CARTA CARTEL and SUPERIOR — took credit for developing GHOST’s image and stage show and blamed his ex-bandmates for “destroying the mystery” surrounding the group by lifting the lid on GHOST’s business dealings.
GHOST is known for its eccentric performances and is composed of six members easily recognized for their satanic attires. Five men who call themselves as Nameless Ghouls play the instruments while the lead vocalist is known as Papa Emeritus. The Nameless Ghouls who are wearing identical devil masks and costumes represent the five instrumentalities or elements (fire, water, air, earth and aether or quintessence) while their leader Papa Emeritus represents the group’s anti-pope symbol.
Forge admitted in a 2016 interview with “Big Smash Radio” that the mystery surrounding GHOST has helped make the band more successful. “I think it definitely plays a part,” he said. “The thing everybody keeps ranting about is the anonymity, which I have a comment on on the side, but I also think that you don’t have to be anonymous or masked in order to have somewhat of a clandestine image. I mean, there are many artists that I know exactly where they are born and what their names are and where they live, which are still very, sort of, hidden. Even Nick Cave, who has a film about himself nowadays, is still someone who I would claim to be utterly enigmatic.”
He continued: “Even if people would know who we are, or you could click on a Wikipedia page saying my date of birth, it does not necessarily mean that I have to go out on social media and tell you where I’m eating. So, yeah, I think even in the future, when it might not be as hidden, or as secret, I think that you can still uphold some sort of… level of fog around you.”
It’s the last day and also Deku’s birthday, so. Also I promised more of the Villain!Todoroki AU so here’s that too. (Multitasking!) This is a sequel of sorts so read that first!
tddk week day 7: endings/beginnings
From the start, Izuku knew that being in contact with villains could put his life in danger. They were dangerous, volatile and didn’t respect the law. Even Shouto, who Izuku has slowly grown close to, was still capable of truly evil things like freeze a whole truckload of money and then set it on fire in the middle of one of the hero rallies.Villains did what they wanted to do, and Izuku couldn’t comprehend most of their choices.
But thinking that was probably his mistake.
Shouto promised him that no harm will ever come to him from the villains. They worked against the law but everyone that helped the Make-A-Wish Foundation had a certain level of goodness that shone. They had a code of their own, and Shouto personally promised that they will stick by it. The Creator, for example, showed up as promised and did not do anything bad when she met with the kids who wanted to meet her. (Being able to make anything from thin air was the most magical quirk in most of the children’s eyes.)
Earphone Jack, when called upon, did a private concert for the teens who admired her coolness. Tsukuyomi also showed up once in the middle of the night for the kids who wanted to meet him.
All the villains did as promised, and Shouto always pulled through. (Nobody asked to meet villains like Tomura, so there was never a problem about actual murderers being called upon. Izuku was glad at least that children instinctively knew where the line was, despite having quite the skewed perspective on heroes and villains.)
In the end, what Izuku should have been worried about were the heroes.
