that shared determined look before yuri first started skating and after when he just said, ‘hai. hai.’ they’ve come to understand each other. they know how they work together now.
the sequins on minami’s jacket A+
THE. SUIT. SEDUCE. ME. VIKTOR. WHAT.
minami-kun fangirling over yuri as much as we do; how great is it that even his ‘challenge’ was encouraging him to do the best? he wasn’t saying ‘i’m gonna crush you’, he was literally saying, ‘prove me right; do your best; show me you’re the person i inspire to be like’.
viktor’s smile-sigh-head tilt
seeing yuri improve as a person and at skating, as much because of his own determination as other people, and how often they all make mistakes. they’re not perfect. (and how blown away we’re going to be when yuri pulls off a perfect set)
love as something multi-faceted and strong and complex and yuri basically declaring to international television
next episode’s back hug
so much development told entirely through commentary and skating just phenomenal
when viktor uses makkachin like a toy so he doesn’t have to watch lmao you’re so fucking cute
All My Idols Ch 6: A Princess, Her Princes, and Her Knights
I have never been so annoyed in my
life, curled up in a ball on the floor facing the corner, like a child in time
out as GD struggles into his ridiculously tight pants behind me. Unni insisted
that I hide in the make shift dressing room that was built out of sheets that
are tucked into the ceiling panels. She promised me I could come out when the
show actually starts but since the boys don’t want me running around out there
by myself, I’m left hiding. Even though they get their own waiting room they
are required by the show to leave it open incase some of the younger groups
have missions that require their help. Though none have had missions, many
younger groups have stopped in just to greet them.
“I’m done,” GD says when he is
finally dressed in his black leather pants and sequined jacket that is the same
bright red as his newly dyed hair.
Turning around I’m surprised to be faced to face with a squatting GD. I
let out a little yelp in surprise making him laugh.
“Ya Jiyong! What are you doing to
our Charlie?” Top grumbles from the other side of the curtain.
“Nothing, I just scared her,” GD
continues to giggle as he strokes my head.
“I have to go to the restroom,” I
say as I peek out of the curtain with GD peeking out above me. Dae and Riri are
getting their makeup done by some of the few makeup unnies who know about me,
while Top and Youngbae are sitting on the couch right next the make shift
changing room on their phones.
“I can show you,” One of the unnies
says with a pretty smile. The guys nod and let me follow her out into the hall.
Still dressed in my work clothes I don’t stand out that much from the dancers
and idols other than for my darker skin and western features. After working
through a labyrinth of halls we find the bathroom, she sends me in, “I’ll be
out here when your done.”
I give her a smile and say, “Thank
you,” Before heading inside. I’m only gone for a couple minutes at most but
when I come back, she is gone. Glancing around nervously I wait by the bathroom
door, hoping she just wandered off for a second but after a whole ten minutes I
know I have to find my way back alone. But after taking only one turn I
automatically regret my decision as I run into Bobby.
“You again,” Bobby says, but this
time his words lack hostility, he even smiles at me.
“Hello to you too,” I say with a
little bit of playfulness.
“Did you come here with the hyungs?
We didn’t see you when we passed by a few minutes ago,” Jinhwan asks with a
small smile, a smile I can’t help but return. I don’t know what it is about
him, maybe it’s his soft features and small height, but I feel comfortable
“Yea, I kind of got lost,” I say
with a bit of embarrassment.
“We can show you the way,” He
I beam at him, “That would be
amazing! Thank you!” A blush spreads across the older man’s faces, making him
“No problem, it’s this way.” He
leads me down the hall way with me following behind him, and the others tailing
“Sorry about earlier,” B.I walks
faster to keep up with me.
“No worries, I’m happy you care
about your hyungs,” I smile at him.
“Earlier, you said you were a fan,
is that why you stopped by our practice?”
It’s my turn to blush at the fact
that I have been caught, “You saw me?”
Junhoe answers this time, “Yea we
have seen you every time but thought we should leave you alone until we saw you
wander off into the direction of the studios.”
“Charlie-ssi?” The massive maknae
asks from behind me; I glance over my shoulder at him, humming a yes. “Can we
call you noona?” I automatically stop and spin around to face him, all the boys
stop and take a step back; surprised my by actions and scared of my massive
“Of course you can! I don’t have
any dongseangs.” This boy also blushes under my attention.
“Does mean I can too?” Junhoe and
Bobby say together with hopeful grins.
“Yes! Since I’m older than all of
you except for Jinhwan oppa,” I give the oldest my mega watt smile.
“Yo! Bobby!” A familiar deep voice
calls from down the hall. We all turn to see Rap monster from BTS standing at
the end of the hall with Suga right behind him.
“Hey Hyung,” Bobby yells back as he
makes his way to his friend.
my god! I scream inside my head as I try to keep my cool. I have never
wanted to fan girl so much in my life. As much as I love my big bang oppas, BTS
is definitely in my top three favorite groups along with them. But with big
bang I have seen past their idol image to see the people they really are so the
fan girl in my head is gone when I’m with them. BTS on the other hand are the
idols I had posters of hanging in my room; they are still the idols I
The guys greet each other as I
drift to stand behind Ikon, not wanting to loose my way back to my oppas but
not wanting anymore unwanted attention. They talk for a few minutes, by that I
mean Namjoon talks as Suga looks interested but tired. He must feel me staring
because his eyes shift to me and I see something spark in them. Feeling
uncomfortable with his intense gaze fixated on me I step behind Jinhwan who
automatically notices Suga trying to see around him to me.
“Bobby,” Jinhwan calls,
interrupting Bobby and Namjoon’s very active conversation. “You can continue,
B.I and I are going to take Charlie back to the hyungs before they start to
worry.” He grabs my hand and leads me past his group with B.I trailing behind
me. Trust me, I already know they are
going to be worried.
“Who is this?” Suga asks as we try
and walk by, blocking our way. When no one responds he asks, “Charlie was it?”
“Yea, Charlie,” I say pronouncing
it slowly so he can hear it properly.
“Sorry Yoongi hyung but we have to
get her back before the show starts,” Jinhwan says ask pushes past the older
boy, B.I follows with this head down.
“Fine,” Suga’s irritation is
obvious as he glares at Jinhwan. “See you during the show Charlie,” He gives me
a gummy smile that I have honestly fantasied about. As we turn the corner I
want to scream in frustration and happiness as the rest of BTS comes barreling
down the hall. I tuck myself behind Jinhwan as the boys stop to greet each
I ever getting back? Jinhwan gives them a little bow, giving them a small
glimpse of me behind him, they all step back, surprised.
“Who is that?” Jin asks as he looks
over Jinhwan to me, why are these damn
boys so curious? Have they never seen a girl before?
“A friend,” B.I deadpans with a
forced smile, “We have to go, so we will see you later.” He tries to push
Jinhwan and I past them but the boys don’t move out of our way, in fact, they
move closer to get a better look at me behind Jinhwan.
“What is your name?” A deep voice I
recognize to be V.
“Why haven’t we seen you around
before?” The smiley boy with orange hair asks.
“Why are you all so interested?”
Jinhwan asks, obviously annoyed with not just their questions but also their
presence in general.
“Yea,” B.I adds as he actually
sniffs my hair, I stare at him with a face of both confusion and amusement. “Do
you have some kind of idol attracting perfume on or something?”
“Why are you attracted to me?” I
tease back, enjoying the deep blush that spreads across his face.
“Good to see you guys got far,”
Junhoe laughs as he and the rest of the group we left behind joins us once
again, including Suga and Rap monster.
“As much as I am enjoying meeting
new people I really need to get back to my oppas,” I say to the crowd of
attractive boys around me. They all look to me, their attention flooding me
with nervousness and I find myself dragging both Jinhwan and B.I in front of me
“Cute,” A few of them coo at me
like a child.
“Okay guys seriously, we are going
to get in big trouble if we don’t bring her back soon so let us through,”
Jinhwan says seriously, I silently thank him for stepping up.
“Where are you even taking her?”
Rap monster asks.
“We need to take the princess back
to her prince charmings.” Junhoe explains with a smile in my direction.
“Princess?” I scoff.
“It fits you well,” Bobby joins in.
“I want to be your prince!” V says
J-hope can’t help but jump in as
well yelling, “No me!” All of the sudden all of the boys minus Jinhwan and B.I
start shouting at me about how they want to be my prince. And if I wasn’t
mentally drained for being up for basically 24 hours I would be enjoying this
and even joining in on this little game but all I want right now is to find my
“Ya! Ya! Ya!” I almost shout to
calm the large group of boys. “I have been up all night and most of today, I do
not have enough energy to play with you guys today, but if you let these to
lovely gentlemen take me away I promise to play with you guys next time.” All
of the boys frown deeply, something that always seems to happen when I mention
my sleeping habits to anyone. As idols I expect them to understand but from the
looks of disapproval and guilt on their faces I see that that will not be
“We’re sorry Noona,” Bobby says as
he looks at me with guilty eyes, now understanding why I was upset earlier this
“Yea, sorry Noona,” The rest of
“Noona?” Jimin says confused.
“Yea Noona,” Hanbin responds for
“July of 1994,” I explain shortly.
“Really?” The maknae line and
leader of BTS exclaims.
“Sorry Noona,” The four boys bow
“Thank you all,” I bow my head to
them before letting Jinhwan lead me out of the pack, B.I still trailing behind
me, but this time he has a grasp on my other hand. We weave through the halls,
doing my best to keep my head down to avoid anyone else but I feel eyes roaming
me and hear familiar voices I want to follow but maybe some other time. It
takes a few minutes for us to reach Big Bang’s room that has a few security
people walking out of it in the other direction. The boys release my hands
before letting me lead the way to the door. Peeking in I call out, “Oppa?”
All five of my oppas are there,
Daesung and GD are sitting on one of the couches, their faces buried in their
hands. Top, Seungri and Youngbae are all pacing in different directions but
they all stop and the others look up at the sound of my voice.
“Charlie!” They all yell and rush
to me, fighting for who gets to hug me first. Top wins and holds me tight to
his chest, kissing the top of my head multiple times before being forced to
hand me over to Youngbae who does the same. I’m passed to each person ending
with GD who doesn’t let me go, before they asks in unison, “Where have you
been?” Their eyes shift to movement in the doorway, where my two knights in
shining armor are standing awkwardly.
“What are you two doing with our
Charlie?” Top snaps, earning a swat from me.
Jinhwan bows before saying, “Just
returning the princess to her princes.” He gives me a small smile.
“And I thank you kind knight! I
will cheer for you during your performance!” I give him and B.I another smile
before signaling them to go, not wanting them to get in trouble for helping me.
“What was that?” GD asks me as he
strokes my hair, his voice and actions are soft and sweet but I know he’s mad,
they all are. They had been worried about me and it just looks like I was off
I snuggle closer to him, “I got
lost and they help me find my way back.”
“What took so long? You have been
gone for 45 minutes,” Top asks coming up beside us and placing his hand on my
back. I turn my head to look at him as I yawn.
“When they would try to lead me
away all these other boys kept popping up asking me all these questions and
they kept staring and ugh!” I bury my face in GD’s chest, my mind completely
spent. Top rubs my back soothingly.
“And the princess thing?” Seungri
asks with a smile in his voice.
“Apparently I’m the princess, you
are all my princes and Ikon are my knights.”
“I like it,” Youngbae says.
“Princess,” GD repeats.
“We have an hour and a half before
the show starts so how about a nap, for everyone?” Top suggests. Without a word
we all shuffle to find some place to sleep, Seungri gets the floor, Daesung
ends up down there along with him. Youngbae, Top, and GD get the couches and I
get to sleep on GD. He wraps his arms around me and wedges me in between
himself and the back of the couch. Dae crawls over to the door to shut in and
turns the light off while he’s over there, leaving us in a nice darkness. The
only sound is coming from GD’s phone on the coffee table playing soft music.
Finally back in the comfort of my
oppas I am completely at ease. We sleep for almost the whole time given to us,
that is until Unni busts in, flipping the lights on.
