secret to love

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

Everything was a mistake.

SO, first day of Juminzen week and I’m so excited! I will probably not participate on all days buuut, here’s day 1, I took the secrets prompt for this one. 

And I might… have gone a little overboard, the word count is 2,807 if you guys are interested.

How was it possible?

How could Jumin keep something his big hidden from him?

More importantly, why didn’t Zen notice?

The signs were there, right under his nose. Jumin coming home late at night, and in the mornings Zen discovered that his shirts smelled different from the cologne the entrepreneur usually used. Heck, the fact that he had constantly avoided Zen’s questions about work being too heavy should have been enough of a warning to make him suspect something, anything.

But he hadn’t. He hadn’t suspected nor thought something was wrong with Jumin’s suspicious behavior, at least not until the proof was right in his face, sort of.  

And to think it had started as a lovely morning.

Remy furious: I hate that man. I swear I do. If it weren’t for the fact that I’d burn in hell for killing my own father, I’d f*cking murder him.

Sal softly: Nah, don’t talk like that, cousin. He’s scary, but he’s still your father.

Remy: Nico’s my father, Sal. I don’t know what that man in there is. I don’t even know why I keep looking for Manny. He makes me sick, but it’s like I still need him. I don’t understand it.

Sal: Listen. Take care of this Steven Brandt guy and then do what you’ve always done since you turned eighteen. Get out of Newcrest. Don’t come back here. I mean, you went as far as Sunlit Tides last time. You should go even further away. You and Lala and your kid.

Remy: I leave but then I get to missing my family. Especially Mae. And you. Even Nico. And I come back.

Sal: Don’t this time. Uncle Otto and Manny want you to take over this sh*t and they won’t take no for an answer. Use them to finish that millionaire, and then get outta here. It’s nothing for you in South Newcrest, Remy. Nico realized that a long time ago. So should you.

  • Lexi: *over the comms* Everyone has to stop eating junk. For now on, only vegetables and protein!
  • Vetra: *over the secret comms* I have fifteen cases of Blast-Os in my room. We can hold out longer than she can.

Okay but seriously real talk. Literally there were just so many beautiful quotes is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

- “The problem with my life was that it was someone else’s idea.”

- “Birds exist to teach us about the sky.

- “There are worse things in the world than a boy who likes to kiss other boys.”

- “How could I ever be ashamed of loving Dante Quintana?”

- “I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn’t get - and never would.”

- “I bet you could sometimes find all the mysteries of the universe in someone’s hand.”
