I'm not a shipper, but @ every shippers who want a canon mlm representation, should stop erasing Keith and Shiro's relationship just because it's notp. Because from the look of it they're the ones that seems to have chance in becoming canon. People are screaming broganes! in every posts to the point of sounding like old homophobes, and even from non shipper's view, it's transparent as fuck. Like it'd be easier if people just admit that KL are not important to each other as people make out to be.

Yes, I agree with you wholeheartedly. The very earliest Voltron interview I heard was before the show even released, and when asked about providing more lgbt rep the way they did with korrasami, Lauren said: “We have those first 13 episodes and if we ever went beyond that, we would like to push the envelope.” Which tells me any gay relationship they planned to expand on has been present right from the start. Add to that comments about how “Keith latches onto Shiro,” “Keith’s always scared he’s gonna say or do something wrong that’ll cause him to lose Shiro,” “He supports Keith one hundred percent, he’s stuck his neck out for Keith a lot,” and “Keith and Shiro have the closest relationship”–if they were ever hinting at anything, I think it’s sheith. 

From onscreen canon interactions, Keith and Shiro’s relationship has always read as romantic to me. And claiming what they have is just brotherly when it’s so obviously different from Matt and Pidge’s dynamic–I just don’t understand it. So many of Keith and Shiro’s scenes are incredibly intimate. They confide in one another, comfort each other, offer physical reassurances and hold each other close. Keith prioritizes Shiro’s safety first and foremost and literally vows to save him, “as many times as it takes.” We see from Keith’s very first scene a tenderness between them that’s never replicated with anyone else. So much of their relationship reads as a veritable fairytale romance. I don’t think that’s an accident. 

It’s really transparent to me when people claim that this season was somehow homophobic for veering further towards allurance or not having Keith interact with Lance?? Like, people are literally claiming the staff don’t care about representation and never had any intention of including it, but?? The crew has already blatantly informed us that it was never their intention to tease Kl/ance, and they directly said they wouldn’t queerbait it. Because it was never there. Fans making serious accusations like this is incredibly transparent–if the only representation that matters to you is your ship, then I think you should reevaluate why. As a bi guy, kl/ance has always made me uncomfortable and I never saw any precedence for it in canon. 

Lauren literally said, “we’re working in animation. Our schedule is so far in advance for that–even if people shipped Keith and Lance, we couldn’t go back and just change the story–to be like and now they’re in love!” When asked about Lance’s future “Mr or Mrs Blue Lion,” Lauren responded exclusively with female pronouns. This isn’t like the bait and switch with building up leader Keith only to throw Shiro back in the pilot seat. Representation is serious, there is no gotcha moment, they’re not continually pushing aside kl/ance so they don’t “ruin the surprise.” 

Representation is a very real concern for Joaquim and Lauren, and they’ve already outright said teasing kl/ance was never their intention. They’re completely against queerbaiting. We’ve been definitively told no. If fans are unable to let go of fanon and refuse to acknowledge the narrative we’ve been given, then that’s on them. But it seems hypocritical to me to claim they were led on when they just refused to listen. As Lauren said: “they start out at odds, but then they grow to kind of respect each other. And if that leads into people being like–they’re spending time together! Then that’s a ‘thing,’ but…We’re not trying to cater to or bait anyone into anything, we’re just trying to do what’s right for the story.”

And I’ve seen people claim–but, kl/ance is so popular! The fans love it so much, they shouldn’t discount it just yet! Things can change! And it’s incredibly clear to me that those fans are naive in their understanding of the animation industry. Joaquim said this best: “There’s just no way. We’re already years past that storyline, you know?” He and Lauren outright confirmed they can’t go back and make kl/ance canon, because the decision to do so would’ve had to have been made years ago. Animation is not a medium conducive to major change. That’s just something fans will have to learn to accept. 

Lauren and Joaquim really seem like they actually care and they’re fighting for more representation. That means something to me. And if people expect me to feel sorry for fans who harass them simply because they didn’t make their OTP canon and are trying to focus on their own narrative, then they don’t know me. If it’s representation fans are concerned about and not just ships, then they shouldn’t see kl/ance as the only viable source for it. I’m sorry if people were disappointed and wanted representation in another form, I really am. I understand, I do. But I don’t think it’s fair to tear down the creators for it when they’re trying their best and act like kl/ance was somehow our only chance. 

anonymous asked:

Hey, you're German, right? I've got a huge favour to ask of you. I've been studying German for a few years, and I plan on studying there for a year. Before that, I wanna improve my language skills, so I've been wondering if you could tell me about some good original German movies? I don't want to watch dubbed ones, I've heard they're horrible. Thank you so much! Love your blog, by the way.

Dubbed movies aren’t actually half bad - at least to movies dubbed in other languages. Trust me, I’ve watched both Spanish and French dubbed movies, they were way worse. This is what we like to call “Jammern auf hohem Niveau” - complaining even though everything is pretty good. You’ll find that Germans are a people of complainers; we like to complain about everything. We are never content :) 

Still, I’m really really excited that you’re interested in my culture and HELL YES THERE ARE A BUNCH OF AWESOME GERMAN MOVIES. Here are some highly acclaimed ones and some of my favourites, I hope all links work. 

  • 12 Meter ohne Kopf (a movie about a German pirate, who allegedly walked 12 meters after being beheaded in order to save his crew)
  • Auf der anderen Seite (a really bautiful sort of episodic movie connecting the lives of three families, both German and Turkish)
  • Barfuss (a movie about a girl suffering from PTSD, who is saved mostly accidentally from committing suicide by a dude cleaning the clinic she is in, and then follows him around everywhere, and they fall in love. Seriously, onely one of two movies by Til Schweiger worth watching)
  • Buddenbrooks (the story of a very rich merchant family and their downfall…a really famour book adaptation)
  • Das Boot (a movie about a German submarine and its crew during World War II. 100& must-see)
  • Das Experiment (A movie about a psychology experiment in prison, and how people react when given free reign over others. This should come with a huge trigger warning. It’s awesome, but also really super disturbing)
  • Das Leben der Anderen (You might’ve heard of that one, since it received an Oscar. It deals with surveillance in East Germany, and is, also, a must-see).
  • Das weiße Band (A movie about the oppressive and rigid society pre-World War I children grew up in.)
  • Das Wunder von Bern (This movie mixes the football world championships of 1954 (soccer for heathens who call other stuff football) and the story of a family that has to re-learn to live with each other when the father comes home after being a war captive for like…12 years MUST SEE)
  • Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (movie about famous German left extremists, the RAF and their terrorist attacks)
  • Der Schuh des Manitu (THE single best German comedy to ever exist. It makes fun of Cowboy movies/books that are super popular in Germany. You’ll cry of laughter seeing Native Americans with a Bavarian accent - which also means your language level should be really high, or you won’t understand a thing. Uh, obviously don’t watch if you think white comedians playing Native Americans is racist even when it’s satire)
  • Der Untergang (the last days in thr life of Adolf Hitler. You’ll probably have heard of that one, too. MUST SEE)
  • Die Blechtrommel (God, I don’t know how to describe this one. Basically, a movie about a child who decides he doesn’t want to grow anymore and observes the world of the adults around him?)
  • Die Fälscher (again, dealing with World War II, and people in concentration camps who were tasked with copying money of other countries)
  • Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei (a movie about three rebels who break into rich people’s houses only to rearrange their furniture and tell them to revise their morals - until one of them catches them in the act and they abduct him for a weekend. MUST SEE)
  • Die Feuerzangenbowle (THE classic movie. about the German school system. An older guy pretending to be a student at an elite high school. Also gave the name to a drink you will find a lot on Christmas markets)
  • Effie Briest (another novel adaptation about a young woman whose marriage is arranged and who loses everything when she cheats on her husband)
  • Ein Freund von mir (two guys who are completely different building a very strange friendship)
  • Elementarteilchen (about the lives of two brothers who were separated after birth, and the completely different lives they lead)
  • Fack Ju Göhte (no links yet, it only came out last year, a new comedy about the German school system, and absolute must-see, if you happen to find a link one day)
  • Gegen die Wand (a Turkish girl fake-marrying a German addict in an attempt to escae her family. MUST SEE)
  • Goodbye Lenin (a beautiful movie/comedy about a family and the German reunification. MUST SEE)
  • Im Winter ein Jahr (a family dealing with the loss of their son/brother)
  • Kabale und Liebe (a superb adaptation of Schiller’s play. bsjdhkdjk)
  • Kebab Connection (…I don’t even know how to describe this movie. Just watch it. Very multi/transcultural and hilarious)
  • Keinohrhasen (a douche has to do community service at a kindergarten - and finds that the girl he used to bully as a kid is now his superior. uh-oh. It’s super funny)
  • Kirschblüten - Hanami  (a dude travelling to Japan to understand and be close to his late wife) 
  • Lola rennt ( a movie about a couple in a dangerous situation - and three possible outcomes)
  • Schiller (ah boy, this was a TV production, so I couldn’t find a link. A brilliant movie about the life of Germany’s best playwright, if you ask me)
  • Soul Kitchen (a comedy about a guy trying to keep his restaurant afloat and keeping his brother out of a life of petty crime)
  • Sophie Scholl - die letzten Tage (a movie about the last days in the life of Sophie Scholl and her brother, who were part of the resistance against the Nazis)
  • Vincent will Meer (a guy with tourette syndrom, a girl with an eating disorder and a guy with OCD break out of their psychiatric clinic to go to the sea. MUST SEE)
  • Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken? ( a movie based on a real story, about a group of teenagers vowing to commit suicide once they do not feel any love anymore)
  • Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot (a comedy about a kid who does a lot of nonsense and when told that he is the reason his mother dies, blames himself, feares that he has to go to hell, and tries to make up for his sins by finding his dad a new wife. Hilarious. Again, tho, super strong Bavarian accent, beware!)

And if you want to watch a few good German TV-shows:

  • Türkisch für Anfänger (ABSOLUTE MUST SEE TV SERIES OMG WATCH IT!!! It deals with a German-Turkish patchwork family and it is hilarious)
  • Tatort Münster (basically a procedural crime show. There are a lot of Tatorts, but this is the only one that is always good. you’ll find a lot of the episodes on youtube)
  • Der letzte Zeuge (a show about a coroner solving crimes)

If you're looking for wolfstar prompts could you maybe write a wolfstar raises Harry au? (btw I love your drabbles/fics they're so good)

Harry shrieked happily as he waddled away speedily from his godfather. He chased after the toddler with his hands stretched out. “Gotcha! You’re a fast little fellow, aren’t you Prongslet?” Little Harry struggled against his grip when Sirius’s fiancee, Remus, called out that dinner was ready. He looked up at Sirius who looked back down at him. “Race you.” Sirius said. Harry sped off ahead of him, Sirius feigning slowness. “Oh, so close! You’re going to make a great Quidditch player some day.” He told his godson as he lifted him up onto his shoulder.

“What’s Quidditch?” Little Harry asked.

“Why don’t you explain it to him while you help me set the table?” Remus asked, handing his fiancee some plates.

“Of course, darling.” He put the plates out and set Harry down on a chair. His head just made it above the table. Remus smiled softly at the boy, then to Sirius. They sat down and ate together, Harry telling his Uncles about his day.


They day came when Remus and Sirius got married. The wedding was quite small, but perfect all the same. It was even more perfect when Harry came bouncing down the aisle, holding the rings on a red velvet pillow. He was smiling so brightly and giggled when Remus ruffled his hair.


Before they knew it, they were in Diagon Alley shopping for Harry’s school supplies. They walked into Madam Malkin’s where Sirius immediately spotted white blonde hair. “Oh no, not a Malfoy. We should come back later.” He began to pulled Remus away when Harry bounced up to the stool right next to the boy. Sirius started after him, but Remus held him back.

anonymous asked:

i see a lot of people saying joaquim and lauren saying theyre fighting for lgbt rep means theyre fighting for it in the show, but couldn't it also mean they have awesome examples in the show, and that means they're doing their part in fighting on behalf of the lgbt people by giving us such good rep? or maybe its the other option and were screwed

alright, i watched the panel (or, well, i watched the part where they got asked the question about this bc i don’t have the time or the patience to watch the whole thing rn) and here’s the link to it, the question gets asked around the 32:47 mark. here’s the transcript (with a few things added by me that i picked up on) 

Fan Question: I know you can’t go into any specifics, or name any characters, but I was wondering if we will be seeing any LGBT representation in the Voltron universe before the show ends?

[they pause for awhile and i think that’s because they’re thinking about how to answer. to me, it looks like they’re—specifically lauren—trying to figure out how to answer this because it’s an obvious SPOILER TERRITORY question… they can’t say too much and they can’t say too little. they don’t want to say no comment or anything like that because, at this point, that’d be a clear indicator that we’re getting LGBT rep. some of y’all really need to realize this stuff before asking spoiler territory questions tbh? whether we like it or not, that would be a big spoiler, especially to them… because they want to tell their story, they don’t want to give it away.]

Joaquim: Lauren?

Kimberly: Ah, that’s such a good question.

Joaquim: That’s a really good question.

Kimberly: How can we… [she doesn’t continue but i think she was going to say something like “how can we answer this?” because like i said, it’s spoiler territory. idk what else she would have said other than that?]

Lauren: I think—You know, I think it’s something that is super important to us.

Joaquim: It’s very important to us. Um, you know, obviously I think what’s great about our community is that, you can pretty much tell whatever story you want to tell and put whatever you want to see into these characters. And just know that, from our perspective, we’re fighting to create as open and as broad a spectrum of characters as we can. So, um, yea. We—

Lauren: We can’t give you any definite answers, but we are super—

Joaquim: We are advocates, and we are fighting for as open and as broad a spectrum of characters as we can create.

alright. i don’t see why the shit people are flipping ass abt this? this was great? this was really great? so, my thoughts: FIRST, try to put yourself in lauren and joaquim’s shoes in this moment. please realize that if they outright said YES or anything, all of us in the fandom would know who they mean: lance, for sure, and like i said in this post (which i think u should read if u haven’t already, along with the post i link in it discussing when lauren said “herself” when talking abt lance’s love interest), he’s going to end up with someone and the only two people it could possibly/reasonably be at this point are allura and keith. i used the process of elimination by taking all the info i know to logically figure out who lance could end up with, and it’s not allura. here’s an excerpt from the post:

if lance ended up with allura, it would not be “a place different than where he started in the series,” because that’s deadass what he wanted at the beginning, it’s exactly what he wanted… they said a good relationship for lance would be what he NEEDED, not what he thought he WANTED.

so, if they HAD said “ah yes, there’s going to be LGBT rep”, anyone who sits down and thinks logically about everything would fucking know that it’s going to be lance who is LGBT, definitely… because lauren DREW HIM HOLDING AN LGBT SIGN WHILE KEITH HELD THE RACE SIGN AND PIDGE HELD THE GENDER SIGN (i.e., signs that have something to do with their character and their storylines), and in turn, this would also spoil klance… because like my post concluded, keith is the only person who fits being lance’s love interest to a T.

they watch what they say, they deal with questions they can’t answer all the time. they work in media and they’re good at hiding things and not spoiling things unless they want to. this + a bunch of other shit that’s been said/is in the show, heavily supports LGBT content in VLD. also, since this bothers me: even if we somehow don’t get klance (i’m still 14857345% sure on it btw, not doubting here), LGBT characters can still exist. they don’t need to be with someone to be LGBT. it’s fucking annoying when people in the fandom act like someone needs to be paired up with someone else in order to be LGBT. obviously, i think klance is going to happen because lance IS going to end up with someone and keith is the only one who fits.

as for this: “Um, you know, obviously I think what’s great about our community is that, you can pretty much tell whatever story you want to tell and put whatever you want to see into these characters. And just know that, from our perspective, we’re fighting to create as open and as broad a spectrum of characters as we can.” idk why everyone is jumping to the conclusion that they MUST be fighting with dreamworks for the opportunity to include LGBT content because:

1) jeremy shada said “i can’t say but don’t worry, you’ll be happy” about LGBT rep in VLD. he wouldn’t have said that if they were fighting for the chance to include rep. they wouldn’t have let him say that. and by saying that, he obviously already knows there’s LGBT rep + tim hedrick, writer on VLD, said “no comment” when asked about LGBT content in VLD. as i said, saying “no comment” is a clear indicator that there’s going to be because it’s what people say when they don’t want to spoil things, even though that alone just spoils things. tim worked on TLOK, he wouldn’t be saying no comment if we weren’t getting rep, because he knows that that comment alone, is going to get people’s hopes up. i’m pretty sure he’s also the one that said asami is korra’s heart. he’s not gonna fuck with us, they all know a lot of VLD fans came from TLOK and a lot of them are LGBT. lauren has also said they are not baiting. this story has been in the works before the first season even aired, they are way ahead of us with where they’re at.

2) the bi flag colors AND the gay flag colors are used in s1ep6 and s3ep3, which are both klance heavy episodes. that’s not a coincidence. it’s not reaching. color symbolism IS a thing in all types of media, including animation, evidenced by the fact that the bi flag colors were in the finale of TLOK… which just so happens to have been animated by the same studio animating VLD, studio mir. lauren and joaquim work WITH them on this stuff, they don’t just put it in for shits and giggles jfc. same goes for all the fond looks between keith and lance. lauren herself literally said expressions are important.

3) it’s very possible that they worded it this way to intentionally throw us off or smth because they’ve definitely done it with other stuff. they could be making it seem like they’re fighting for the chance to include LGBT characters because they don’t want to give away that there already ARE LGBT characters. i know, it sucks that this stuff is treated as a spoiler, but if it’s going to play such a huge part in the storyline of a character… it IS a spoiler for the show. lance’s sexuality is going to be a big part of his storyline, this is supported by the fact that pidge’s sign and keith’s sign both played a big role in their storylines, and it’s supported by other stuff i’ve discussed before. as i said, confirming that there’s LGBT rep would also spoil the endgame couple. they just want to let their story unfold without giving away big parts of it. “fighting” could also have nothing to do with literally fighting dreamworks to include rep in the first place but rather, like this anon said, it could mean they have LGBT characters/content in the show, which means they’re doing their part in fighting on behalf of the LGBT community by giving us such good rep. joaquim said, “i think what’s great about our community is that you can pretty much tell whatever story you want to tell and put whatever you want to see into these characters.” this doesn’t make it seem like they’re in a war with dreamworks or anyone over including LGBT content. we know netflix is fine with it, so we don’t have to worry about that, and we have this:

this also doesn’t make it seem like including LGBT content will be denied by dreamworks, it seems more like they already know they can include it.

the way they answered this question honestly just came across—to me—as them trying not to spoil anything that’s to come in regards to LGBT rep. they were vague and cryptic yet again. lauren also says they can’t give “definite answers”. they can’t give answers that aren’t vague or unambiguous about this stuff because. they. don’t. want. to. spoil. anything. that’s just my two cents.

anonymous asked:

They go through fertility problems before finally getting a pregnancy that sticks, can we have the story of when they discover that Yuuri's pregnant with Irina? (Have you done this one already I haven't seen it, sorry if you have, love your stories!)

Whispers I’ve been waiting for this ask.

So as mentioned before, Yuuri retires from skating at twenty-eight and begins coaching and choreographing with Viktor. Because their desire to have children is a big part of the reason why Yuuri retired, they start trying to have a child right away. This would probably be late March, after Worlds. By early May, one of Yuuri’s pregnancy tests comes back positive. 

Unfortunately, at Yuuri’s first ultrasound, they can’t find a heartbeat. (I wrote a long-ass scene to do with this but then I pretty much realized that it was full of medical gibberish and crying and probably very boring, so I left that out) 

The miscarriage happens in June–and it takes awhile before Yuuri’s hormones are back to normal, in part due to stress. This is a great contributing factor to their conception problems. 

In December, Yuuri is almost sure he’s pregnant. For Viktor’s birthday, one of Viktor’s gifts is a gift-wrapped pregnancy test. 

“Have you taken it?” Viktor asks, and he’s holding it in shaking hands.

“Not yet,” says Yuuri. “I was thinking we could–it would be a nice gift, if we found out together.”

Then it comes out negative. And Yuuri cries.

“I’m sorry,” Yuuri sobs into his pillow on their bed, curled up into a little ball with Viktor trying to wrap as much of himself around him as possible. “I ruined your birthday. It was a stupid idea, I should have just taken it by myself and not disappointed you. I’m sorry.”

“I thought it was a lovely gesture,” Viktor whispers against his shoulder blade. “I love you, you know.”

“I ruined your birthday,” Yuuri sniffs again. 

“The night isn’t over, yet,” Viktor tells him.

They go out and get pretty extravagantly drunk. It’s probably not the wisest course of action, but it’s better than sitting at home, staring at the four walls and crying. 

In February, Yuuri sits Viktor down and says, “Maybe we should take a break. Just for a little while.”

Viktor closes his eyes, sighs, and nods. Because he loves Yuuri, and he knows how tired they both are.

(But a little voice in the back of his mind is saying Lilia and Yakov said they were taking a break, too. And that break lasted twenty years. And then it was too late.)

They go out for White Day, which they enjoy celebrating despite not living in Japan at the moment, and when they go to bed after a nice dinner and some dancing, Yuuri realizes that some sort of…pressure has been lifted.

“That was fun,” Yuuri whispers to Viktor afterwards, head on his chest and palm against his belly.

“Mmm, one can only hope,” Viktor murmurs back, and laughs into Yuuri’s hair. “Isn’t sex supposed to be fun?”

“It hasn’t been, though,” Yuuri whispers. “Not for awhile.”

Viktor, almost contemplative, brushes Yuuri’s hair behind his ear and kisses his forehead. “Maybe we’ve been putting too much pressure on ourselves,” he says, and reaches over to turn out the bedside light.

A month and some change later, Yuuri is standing in at store with his phone out, staring at his grocery list. He accidentally flips to his calendar app, where he’s been keeping careful track of all his various cycles, and realizes something.

He counts backwards six times, grocery basket forgotten next to him in the aisle. Someone actually taps his shoulder to ask if he’s alright, because the look on his face must be similar to that of someone who’s seen a ghost.

“I’m fine, thanks,” he mumbles vaguely, and all but runs to the family planning aisle. 

“Yuuri?” Viktor asks, when he comes in the door without so much as a hello. “Everything okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine!” Yuuri calls. “I just–I need to go to the bathroom! Sorry!” He drops all his other purchases on the island counter and books it to the bathroom, more or less slamming the door behind him. He hears Makkachin whimper at the door for him. 

“Oh, that’s…that’s fine.” He hears Viktor going through the bags in the kitchen. “Did you get onions?”

Yuuri doesn’t really answer, since he’s so busy peeing into a cup–Viktor’s drinking cup, unfortunately. He dips every test he bought–eight tests of four different brands, because he is Viktor Nikiforov’s husband and being over-the-top is kind of the Nikiforov MO, also because he is not fucking around–and lines them up neatly on the counter, then tries not to hyperventilate as he sits on the edge of the bathtub and waits for the tests to develop. 

Viktor knocks on the door. “Kitten? You forgot beets. And half the other things on the list. I’m not complaining, just–is everything okay?”

“Um–just–just give me a minute!” One of the tests is starting to fade in–he knocks two others onto the floor in his hurry to grab it.

One pink line. His heart drops, and he drops with it–sinking onto the floor.

“Yuuri? Are you sick?” Viktor jiggles the doorknob. “Sweetheart? Can you talk to me?”

Yuuri, still vibrating with adrenaline, leans over and unlocks the bathroom door. “You can come in,” he murmurs, not even bothering to hide the despondency in his voice.

Viktor nudges the door open gently, and Yuuri can tell that he knows what’s happened the moment he sees Yuuri sitting on the bathroom floor surrounded by pregnancy tests.

“Oh, Kitten,” Viktor murmurs, hunkering down on the floor with him.

“I’m late,” Yuuri tells him, sniffing. “So I thought–I don’t know, I shouldn’t have even–but I thought maybe…”

Viktor sighs, and gathers the tests that fell on the floor–a pair of expensive ones, with the digital display. He glances at them and clicks his tongue, then does a double take. And a triple take.

“Yuuri,” he says carefully. “Did you look at all of them?”

“No,” Yuuri sniffs, swiping the tears of his cheeks somewhat fiercely. “I didn’t want to–to see all of them say negative.”

“Yuuri.” Viktor sets the two digital tests in front of him, and then reaches up to the counter to retrieve the other five. He lines them all up in a careful line.

Pregnant. Blue plus sign. Blue plus sign. The word YES–

“Oh my God,” Yuuri says, searching through them. “Oh my God. Viktor.”

“Where’s the negative one?” Viktor asks, eyes roving frantically along the floor. 

“Here.” Yuuri hands it to him, shaking now for a totally different reason.

Viktor holds it close to his face, and if Yuuri didn’t already know that that man loved him he would have at that moment–you have to love someone to willingly put something with their pee on it that close to your face.

“Look, look.” Viktor holds it out to him, and points to the spot where there might be a very, very faint pink line. “It’s early yet. It’s faint, but it’s there. They’re all positive. Eight positives. Yuuri. Yuuri.”

“Oh my God.” Yuuri presses his face into his hands. “Oh my God. Viktor, oh my God.”

“I know!” Viktor brushes his hair back, kisses the side of his head. “I know! Yuuri, oh baby, please don’t cry. Shh, don’t cry.”

“I’m crying because I’m happy!” Yuuri wails, feeling ridiculous with tears streaming down his face, a grown man huddled on a bathroom floor just sobbing his eyes out.

Come to think, this might be Yuuri’s first happy bathroom cry.

“We’re going to have a baby,” Viktor coos to him, head resting on his shoulder.

Yuuri wrings a hand, hiccuping. “What if I–”

“Don’t,” Viktor says. “Don’t think about that. Remember what the doctor said? Most people go on to have perfectly normal pregnancies after a miscarriage.”

“But I’ve been having so much trouble–”

“That was stress. And hormones. And maybe other things, but it doesn’t matter now because you are. You are pregnant. There are eight tests here telling me that you’re going to have my baby–and I have complete faith that they’re right.”

Yuuri stares at him, eye still swimming in tears. He sways forward until their foreheads are pressed together, and grabs Viktor’s hand to push it up underneath his shirt, pressed warm against his belly. 

“Who should we tell?” he murmurs.

“Let’s keep it to ourselves, for now,” Viktor whispers back. “You know me, Yuuri. I’m Russian. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t tell anyone until your water broke.”

Yuuri, who a year ago thought Russian pregnancy superstitions were pretty extreme, can’t disagree with him. 

When Yuuri announces to his and Viktor’s students and he won’t be skating for awhile, the look Lilia gives him across the rink is disturbing levels of all-knowing, but Yuuri figures that it doesn’t really jinx anything if the person figures it out themselves–and has as-yet undiscovered superpowers aiding them.

“I think Lilia just smiled at me,” he whispers to Viktor as he leans against the boards, watching their students warm up.

“Pregnancy brain,” Viktor tells him gravely, but there’s a joviality to his voice that’s hard to miss.

Here you go. I’m so so sososososososo sorry it took so long

Theo stalked through the winding halls of the zoo. Liam’s heartbeat still rocketing behind him. He’d actually been impressed with the Beta for a moment, the plan wasn’t the best but it was better than any of the others people had come up with and Liam had actually thought about the location properly, using one that gave them a tactical advantage, it was smart. Really smart. And then he had to go and ruin it by letting his anger get the better of him and refusing to leave.

It’s fine, Theo thought, if Liam wants to get himself killed it doesn’t matter, it means nothing, he means nothing. Gerard’s voice floated through the halls of the zoo, reaffirming the kill order on Liam’s head.

how do you introduce a large group of characters (around ten) that are all meeting for the first time? sort of like the hunger games when they're all training and none of the tributes know each other. i already want to establish the relationships (romantic and friendships) between certain characters so i can flesh out their personalities more.

Thanks for your question, nonny! :)

This is something I’ve had to do before: in my second novel, I gathered nine characters to a rooftop and observed them all through the eyes (and first impression) of my POV character.  It was a difficult scene, and it felt awkward at the beginning – but by the end I found I’d enjoyed it a lot.  Something about meeting new characters for the first time is always exciting… so to meet a bunch of characters at once?

Originally posted by samisoffthewall

But it’s also difficult.  The more characters you have, the more confusing it can become to keep track of them all.  Beyond that, you have to consider how you’re portraying all of them, with their body language and their interactions with each other.  How much is too much for your POV character to discern from first impressions?  How do you separate what your character can see from what you already know?


How to Introduce Multiple Characters at Once

I’m going to list out a couple dos and don’ts, all working toward the same primary goal: to interest your readers without overwhelming them.  Things get confusing if your characters aren’t laid out right, so that’s going to be my focus…

Do: picture the setting.

If you’re going to outline some or all of the characters in the scene, the best way to start is to imagine the room through the eyes of your POV character.  Where your characters stand is important – almost as important as what they’re doing.  If they’re quiet or introverted, they may be off to the side.  If they’re dominant or relaxed, they’ll tend toward the center, probably dead ahead of your character.  Take note of this, because this will affect the order in which your character sees them.

Don’t: introduce them linearly.

Unless your character is literally meeting these strangers in a line-up, you shouldn’t introduce them from left to right.  Remember that these characters aren’t stationary objects – they’re people who move, speak, and make noise.  Different people in different corners of the room will grab your MC’s attention.  They may hold that attention for a long time, or only for an instant before your MC is distracted by someone else.  Jump around between characters, although you should try not to revisit the same one twice.

Do: describe them subjectively.

Your MC is going to have bias, preconceived notions, which color the way they view certain people.  They are going to think of some things as normal, based on their exposure and their role models in life.  They’re going to have opinions on people with short hair, or people who over/under-dress, or people who bite their nails, or people who talk too loudly or don’t talk at all, etc.  They’re going to develop first impressions that may be incorrect, but that’s the fun part – who they at first perceive as a gross narcissist or a social pariah may later become their best friend.  So use that strongly.

Don’t: over-describe them.

Readers can only handle so much information at once, and if you describe all ten of these characters from head to toe, they’ll wind up dizzy.  Instead, pick one focal trait per character – one that’s distinctive from any other character.  If you have two blond men in one room, you can’t describe them both as “the blond man.”  In fact, it can be better to use non-physical descriptors at first (e.g. “Teeth-Grinder” or “the awkward starer”).  Either way, don’t tell me your characters’ hair colors (unless they’re outrageous) or if they’re wearing a flattering wrap dress.  And please, oh please, don’t have your character “overhear” names.  You learn names when they’re told to you.  Don’t try to cheat.


I hope some of this has helped you.  If you have another question, my inbox is open!  Good luck :)

What exactly are nurses/doctors asking me when they ask if I have any allergies? I assume they mean allergies to things like penicillin, but I always tell them that I'm allergic to dust because I don't want them to yell at me later if there's some obscure medical complication that could have been avoided if I'd told them I'm allergic to dust, but then I feel like an asshole because of course they're not talking about dust allergies. I mean, right?

We’re asking about all allergies, and you should go ahead and list everything. If you say “dust” on your allergy list, we don’t necessarily do anything differently, but we don’t think you’re an asshole.  And it might be relevant if you have respiratory allergy symptoms and the doctor is trying to figure out why.

The only people we think are assholes are the guys who, when asked “do you have any allergies?” respond with “Yeah.  Women.  Haw!  I’m allergic to women!”

(This happens constantly.  You wouldn’t think so but it does.)

So, I'm impressed with quite a lot about your writing, but one of the things I'm impressed with the most is how you do characters. The characters are just really /Real/ and alive and vivid. My characters are round and have flaws and motivations and everything that smart people say good characters need to have, but. They're still just not as /Real/ as yours. So if you have time, could you give some tips for developing characters? Thanks!

Dear protecterwinsmith,

Let’s say someone asked you to draw a person. 

If you’d never drawn a person before or thought you didn’t have much time, you might do one of these guys:

Example A: stick dude. A stick dude is recognizable as a person because it follows the baseline, easiest rules of personhood. It’s got a head, a torso, a familiar arrangement of limbs. You don’t need more to get the concept of “person” across. 

Now, if you had a bit of experience drawing people or thought you had more time, you might do something more like

Example B: Cartoon Dude. Cartoon Dude is even easier to recognize as a human. He follows the rules of personhood even more: he’s got facial features, ears, hair, clothing, shoes. You can tell one cartoon dude from another cartoon dude. You can populate an entire series with cartoon dudes and the storytelling would work, because they would effectively follow the baseline rules of human anatomy as well as being unique enough to tell apart. 

Now let’s say you had a bit more time or you had some more experience drawing people and someone asked you to draw a human realistically. Depending on how much you’d done it, you might get

Example C: 3-D dude without reference. A 3-D dude drawn without reference is even more recognizable as human. He can hold all sorts of nuance in his expression because he follows the baseline rules of personhood even better than the previous two. More nuance means more empathy from the viewer, and more empathy usually means more emotional resonance.

And finally, let’s say someone asks you to draw a human but gives you an actual person to look at. In the same amount of time given, you might end up with

Example D: Portrait with reference. This guy (one of my brothers, in fact) follows the rules of personhood, their effectiveness limited only by my ability to capture them in the time given or by my level of experience. He’s recognizable as both a person and an individual because of the specificity of his facial features, and moreover, he is unlikely to look like any other person I would draw using this method because of my close adherence to his, you know, actual face.

If you think about this in terms of characters, you could build a novel with any one of these sorts of character.

Example A: A novel built with stick man characters would be incredibly stylized. Fairy tales are often stick figure characters. Instead of being fully-fleshed individuals, they’re types. This is the stick figure woodsman (we can tell it’s him, he’s drawn with an ax). This is the princess (we can tell it’s her, she’s got a crown and some long hair added to the stick figure). This is the knight (we can tell it’s him, he’s got a sword and a stick horse). People don’t actually look like stick figures, but as long as the characters are all stick figures, the narrative still works at some level, because it tells you the rules and follows them, even if they aren’t the rules of reality. The moment you draw one character as something more than a stick figure, though, the viewer suddenly realizes how the others are merely made of straight lines. 

Example B: When I first began to write, I used to write novels with accidental cartoon characters. I knew I couldn’t populate a novel with stick figures, so I tried to flesh them out. What makes a human a human? I asked myself desperately. Specifics! I made character worksheets and dutifully filled them out with attributes. Height, hair color, eye color, hobbies, place of residence, parental occupation, etc. etc. I ended up with characters who followed the rules of being human, and they could carry a story, but they still didn’t feel real. 

I’m skipping Example C for now, because it’s a byproduct, for me, of failing to remember the lessons of Example D.

Example D: Example D is how I build characters now. I begin by studying real people instead of by creating lists of traits. I end up with shadows I forgot to draw in my cartoon version, hair that looks like actual hair instead of what I sort of remember what hair looks like, and feet that have all the toes drawn in because with a reference, I can remember how to accurately draw a pinkie toe. Real people are complicated and surprising. If I were building a character with a fear of water without looking at a real person, I might give them the phobia because they’d nearly drowned once: the easiest and most logical answer. It wouldn’t necessarily be wrong — it would follow rules that a reader would understand. But if I looked at a real person with a fear of water, I might discover that their fear developed because of an obsession with quantifying the abstract, and trying to understand the concept of an infinite body of water made them anxious. A much more complicated answer, but more specific and more real because of it. If I populate a book with characters built like this, I’m going to end up with a nuanced story that should have more emotional resonance. Moreover, the more I study real humans and build characters from them, the less I have to lean on real humans to make secondary characters. As I learn the more subtle rules of how people’s personalities are made, I can start to build new humans who don’t exist — who nonetheless appear as if they could. 

Example C: I’m returning to example C because it’s a cautionary tale for me. Even though I feel that I’m worlds better than that old version of me writing cartoony people who could only exist in a two-dimensional place, if I get lazy with my character development, or if I try to create a sort of person I’ve never met in real life from scratch, I can still end up with one of these weird cartoon-realistic hybrids. A character who nearly looks real but lacks the subtle, observed nuances that I can only get from keeping an eye on real life. These characters follow the rules, and they have back stories and hobbies and nuance, but they’re still lacking the surprising, non-linear subtleties of a real person, or they’re lacking the specificity that comes from studying a real-life elbow and carefully transcribing the shape of it.  

There are particular sorts of things I look for in real people when I’m stealing bits and bobs, but that is a topic for another blog post. For now, I’m going to go figure out why I still can’t draw feet.

Stiefvater

anonymous asked:

would you write a fic/headcanon about isak looking after a hungover even and even looking after a hungover isak? seeing the differences with what they both like and need when they're hungover and the comfort that soothes them <3 your work is incredible!

when Even is hungover:

  • Even doesn’t actually really get hangovers he’s that asshole who hangovers just don’t happen to
  • in fairness he isn’t a massive drinker, even if he wasn’t drinking in moderate because of meds and his health alcohol wouldn’t be his substance of choice (that substance would be a little more, ahem, green)
  • he usually gets a bit of a headache if he was drinking the night before and he’ll play it up like he’s going to die if Isak doesn’t get him a glass of water immediately, but he’s actually fine. Even usually wakes first too so he gets his own water and has a couple painkillers and he’s all good but he likes to make out to Isak that he almost died because Isak couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed to get his favourite boyfriend some water
  • Even doesn’t really get the love of alcohol if he’s honest???? like yeah some of it tastes nice but most of it tastes like shit and it feels bad to drink and he’s seen what a bad hangover looks like and he doesn’t get why people would do that to themselves. nah. not really his scene. too loud and too messy and too much.

when Isak is hungover:

  • now Isak is a different story
  • if Isak drinks he always ends up drinking harder than he probably should and he ends up with hellish hangovers and can hardly move for the next 24 hours
  • Even discovers pretty early on that Isak’s solution to hangovers (and most other things tbh) is to sleep it off. it’s not exactly a solution though????? because it doesn’t cure the hangover it just means Isak waits the thing out?????
  • Even’s had his fair share of big nights out and friends who do get hangovers so he knows some tricks and if Isak has plans to go out Even makes sure he has necessary ingredients in for his magical hangover cure drink
  • he also makes sure there’s a big glass of water next to the bed for when Isak gets in (he always leaves a cute doodle with it reminding Isak to drink all the water before he goes to sleep)
  • hungover Isak is the most pitiful and needy thing Even has ever experienced, right up there with sick Isak
  • Isak demands to be cuddled so he can press his face in Even’s chest and block out the sunlight
  • but he’ll also make sad tired eyes up at Even and pout asking for fried food (he swears it always help a hangover pass) but if Even tries to get up to make something Isak just about throws a fit so it always ends up with Even awkwardly phoning the take out place while Isak is using him as a life sized teddy bear
  • the main thing Isak gets with a hangover is more thirst than he feels should be physically possible, so Even makes sure they have a lot of juice in (he tries not to let Isak live off fizzy drinks, which Isak would if he could)
  • thankfully Isak isn’t one for vomiting everywhere when hungover, but there have been a couple of nights when Isak stumbled straight to the bathroom to empty his stomach before he does anything else (those are usually the nights that someone convinces him to do shots, he just isn’t meant to drink like that RIP)
  • but if he’s been sick the night before Isak will feel even more sorry for himself than usual and needs a lot of cuddling and kisses (only after he’s brushed his teeth, even Even’s love has limits he’s discovered)
  • when Isak gets the spins (this usually happens if he comes home drunk out of his skull) he’ll clutch onto Even like he’s the only thing anchoring him to this world. Even kinda loves it, though he doesn’t love the sound of Isak’s anxious breathing as he tries to regain his sense of equilibrium
  • Even’s magical hangover drink usually works pretty fast though and it doesn’t taste half bad so Isak doesn’t protest necking the concoction back the next morning
  • he does protest that Even won’t tell him what’s in it though. Even insists that it has to remain a secret otherwise what will Isak need him for???? Isak usually rolls his eyes and gives Even some sass, because he’s hungover not dead and death is the only thing that will stop Isak Valtersen’s sass
  • like I said, Even’s concoction works pretty quickly so Isak only really suffers for about an hour after he’s drained the glass, but he still feels kinda gross and sluggish after a night out so those days are always reserved for cuddles in bed and quiet activities like watching Netflix
  • Isak always whines and swears he’ll never drink again, and Even can’t help but laugh because he knows they’ll be in this exact same position in a couple weeks if not sooner
  • but that’s alright
  • because he’ll always be there to make his magical hangover cure and cuddle Isak back to full health
I don’t think Malec had sex in 02x07 after the cut and here’s why...

Okay so, I’ve stayed pretty quiet on the whole cut and sex scene or lack thereof from ep seven, we all know the one I’m talking about. But I was talking to @seaselkie (again) about this because that’s where my rants about TV shows usually goes, and she hasn’t yet seen season 2 so despite shipping Malec she’s impartial, also some of what I’m writing might have come from her in our discussion so I’m giving credit. So yeah, I showed her Jace’s sex scene, Izzy and Alec’s convo and the Malec “pre-sex” scene.

Her instant response was: “No way are they having sex right there.” 

I agree.

I want to acknowledge now, that if they did have sex after the cut, it’s fucked up in more ways than one. It’s homophobic from a viewing standpoint and unhealthy from a relationship standpoint.

-OCD like?????? wrecked my life man. like it was a constant undertone in my childhood and tl;dr was a super bad time and i didn’t get properly diagnosed until i was in high school and i was like??????? oh my god it makes sense????

-started undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy for my OCD and anxiety in high school bc i was having a Hella Bad Time™

-results just in: thoughts cant hurt u and u dont have to wash your hands until they bleed and Good Numbers and Bad Numbers are just numbers, etc.

still miserable at school because i was relearning things i already learned/taught myself on the side and was frustrated and hated everything and myself 

-my ELP coach reached out to me and asked if i’d like to do a plant experiment??? she would use program money to get the equipment???

-shoutout to my ELP coach for making school worth coming to again and making homework and projects worth doing on time again bc she gave me a chance to actually do something that im interested in and express myself through science and be challenged, just not in class (*insert american public school tangent here*), literally, actually saved my life and stopped my self harming and helped my depression bc at the end of the day i got to do what i loved 

-shoutout to my environmental sustainability teacher who encouraged me and was 200% willing to use his resources to help me learn, who sought out the edge of what i had taught myself and used his college microbiology degree knowledge to teach me more and provide me with more resources instead of circling me back into the lesson and making me wade through what i already knew like all my other high school teachers did when i asked them more questions to extend on my extending on my learning

-anyway back to the ADHD thing

-so i always had some obsessive thoughts and actions from my OCD, but when I got put on my current medication thats been working SUUUPER WELL I LOVE IT, i suddenly couldn’t focus. my grades dropped. this was literally in the second half of my senior year. i was off any and all ADHD medications because of their stimulatory effect, which i learned the hard way a few years ago made my OCD compulsions 200% worse and symptoms more intense. 

-okay like. this was wild right

-my psychiatrist told me that because I was struggling with my depression, anxiety, and OCD less, my ADHD was starting to show more because my (copious) energy was no longer being bogged down by depression or eaten up by fear and compulsions. 

-that. took a little bit to get used to. like i had to change my study habits and stuff (current study set up: 1. ALWAYS study at school/in a different building because when i try to study at home/in my dorm it’s a signal that it’s time to begin winding myself down and tapering off my energy for the night, and i fall asleep 2. use white noise to drown out that Dank ADHD Hypersensitivity and Distractibility). I also am now more fidgety than i was and need more effort to focus– i control this by working out every morning to burn off some of the residual stuff so i can actually function (not yoga lol). if i dont, im hit with weird slams of writing inspiration and distractibility during the day, which are cool but then get looped into obsessive thoughts that make them hard to shake

-it just was a weird moment of realization for me because the last time I struggled with my ADHD explicitly was in early elementary school. it had been “gone” for so long that i literally thought that my parents had me diagnosed too young and it was a wrong diagnosis (i was diagnosed in kindergarden). 

-most, if not all, of my autism-like-symptoms come from my OCD and ADHD. I’ve been tested for autism, and do not have it. my hyperfocus and passion come from obsessive thoughts and stuff relating to those two disorders, and im inclined to say that my social incapabilities relate to impulsivity and oversharing related to those two disorders as well (i’ve been doing pretty well controlling those lately having gotten help for that in therapy, but…….you know……still working on it like yikes. i feel better about it after meeting some of the grown up, employed plant academics here at school, which all share some resemblance to me in social ability. ive heard rumors about the whole “academics are bad at socializing” stereotype but like……….i see it now…….these are my people………)

Hey bro

You know how we’ve always said it would be cool to go on a double date

When has either of us ever said that

I get your hints. I don't see them as a problem. I think a subset of the people annoyed get them, they just feel like they're a little too flip because of a failure to be properly exposed to how trivial their concerns are on a cosmic scale. I think another subset of people feel like the responses beat around the bush because you're not responding to some subtextual aspect of their question they feel is obvious.

My mind space is not on tournament Magic. It isn’t what I do. I’m the design guy, so my focus is more on the architecture of why and how we put things together.

So when someone asks why there aren’t graveyard answers, I take it as a design question. Structurally, why wouldn’t you put answers in the design?

The answer involves non-public information so I give a coy “wait and see” answer. I do 100% plan on explaining the reasoning when I’m able.

The person asking the question was concerned with Standard though so they were asking me, the easiest person to ask a question, something to let me comment on the state of Standard.

I wasn’t being dismissive or arrogant or unempathetic. I was a hammer assuming something was a nail when, in fact, it was far from a nail.

With hindsight, I now see the tone behind the question and if I had it to do over, I would give a straight-forward answer.

Here’s the problem for the future for me. Can I tell the difference before answering? Not only do I have the viewpoint issue, but I’m most often answering questions in between living my life.

I think the “madness to our method” quote was written while my son was brushing his teeth. My focus is already not 100%, but if I want to keep up my volume (which was the #1 positive response when I asked recently what people like about my blog) that’s the time I have to answer.

My point for this long post is that my goal is always to be the best spokesperson I can be. I try to learn from my mistakes to improve, but I know that this kind of nuance issue is just not something I’m going to catch all the time.

I promise you I hear the concerns and I’m working to do the best I can. I’ll try to catch things like this in the future.

All I ask in return is to remember I’m a human being capable of making mistakes just like anyone. Please don’t assume malice on my part.

If generating a million plus words of Magic a year should do anything, it should at least make my intentions clear. I care very much for the game and for the community. My involvement here on the blog is to enhance the game and make it more enjoyable for all of you not be dismissive of your concerns.

@jamiiemariia You have requested and I’ve returned. Prompt: Doomfist and Lucio soulmate AU where their first words to each other are written on their wrists and they meet in battle.

some notes, I’m actually a sucker for soulmate AUs, I know its super over done, but like, they over done for a reason. This is actually a tini bit inspired by @junelets​ recent doomcio panels.

Ok so I’m adding to the “tea spilling”

I hate to do this because I’ve stepped away from the fandom and really am just fed up with it. And in light of the kind of stunts they are running right now - this is the last straw. I have been sitting on a story from my friend (I’m posting this for her. And she previously wanted me to keep it private but she gave me permission to post it.) I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS NOT MY STORY - MY friend gave me permission to post it. Please respect me and do not ask me who it is. She is not famous so it doesn’t matter who she is. This will be my last post about 1D for a long time if even forever. Because this fandom is NOT healthy. But anyway here’s the story (I won’t answer asks about it because I’m not posting it for the attention on me.) It’s a receipt that UAs deceive and contribute to damage control. Also if they tweet random shit about Larry or anything really that’s out of place like there’s prolly a reason why even if nobody is talking about anything in particular.

Now my friend was telling me and a group of friends about this little incident clubbing. It was in May in LA (it would have had to be May 9th? Because I tweeted the 10th about last night Calvin fucked up which I’m gonna add later.) that time Louis went clubbing with Calvin, Oli and Liam. It’s nothing incriminating to Louis OR Harry’s sexuality. BUT my friend’s friend went clubbing with them that night (the one night Liam was with them.) My friend told me that that her friend told her that Calvin was trying to get these girls to go back to the hotel where Oli, Calvin, etc were staying at and he was SO smashed and he was saying that the guys will be there and that they should come back with them and then backtracked to say that Louis wouldn’t be there because he’s staying at Harry’s. Now my friends and I didn’t really know if this was true but nonetheless we got a kick out of it and (I have a couple screencaps of tweets I sent out about the situation.) TO WHICH THIS GETS BETTER:

SO the next day 1DAlerts comes online to say they’re pretty sure Louis was staying with FRIENDS not Harry. Pretty convenient, eh? Nobody understood why they tweeted this. Because I mean aside from the normal chatter like NOBODY was tweeting about this story which is the MOST hilarious part! “Obviously….”

So here are my receipts:

If you see my tweets shading the situation are timestamped a couple hours BEFORE their tweet. And even better another friend of mine posted shading them for covering up when his friend fucks up and they called her crazy and were just “stating their opinion” They didn’t even mention the UA by name or the people involved :’)  The funniest bit is we all were sitting on this and they really just confirmed the story to us when they were trying to cover it up… And no that one I’m replying to on these screencaps don’t know anything and is not my friend in this story so don’t harass them about this. I will not be divulging who it is. So again PLEASE respect and don’t ask who it is. I don’t wanna send out 18237429847289 replies saying no. It’s just gonna be a blanketed no.

anonymous asked:

wanted to ask for small scenarios with V, Zen, and Jumin and a male MC? they're in love, but MC doesn't want to be with them out of fear that they'll eventually be found out by the media. he's scared he'll ruin their careers because of a scandal over V/Zen/Jumin liking men. it's okay if you don't want to write all three, just whichever you have time/inspiration for pls <3

Jumin:

HE took a shaking breath, unable to calm himself. “MC,” he finally managed to say, MC still trapped in his apartment, “You are telling me that you do not care for me?”

MC shook his head, eyes wide in fear. “J-Jumin, I never said that. I love you. How could I not? I.. I just can’t be with you. You have an image to maintain. The press would have a field day when they find out about us, Jumin. I can’t let that happen. I can’t be with you” MC took a breath, trying to clear his mind, tears spilling over his eyelashes. “I ca-” He broke off with a sob, unable to continue.

Unable to see the love of his life in pain, no matter how angry he was, Jumin pulled MC into a hug, whispering soft words of assurance. Once MC had calmed down some, Jumin sighed, pulling away. “MC, I will say this once and only once.” With one of his slender fingers, he tilted MC’s chin up, looking him in the eyes. “I don’t care what the media says, it is just mindless gossip. Let them say what they want.” He took a deep breath, trying to calm the nerves he suddenly felt. “I love you, MC. I love you more than my image, or my father. I don’t care if he disowns me for being with you. This is what I want. The first thing I have ever wanted this much. Are you going to deny me that?” He growled slightly, his possessive side showing.

MC swallowed hard, looking up into Jumin’s grey eyes. “I.. I could never deny you anything, Jumin.” He smiled softly, believing that somehow Jumin would make it alright


Zen:

“Zen, just stop! Pease!” MC cried out in frustration, barely able to keep from screaming. MC was throwing his clothes into a bag haphazardly on the floor. “Just let me leave, Zen!” The picture of them kissing that had been released to the press burned into his eyes. He could hear the news reporters twittering mockingly about how Zen’s career would go down. He should never have caused a scandal like this for Zen.

“MC! Please, can we please talk about this?” Zen’s voice was frantic as he tried to stop MC. “MC, please.” MC’s heart broke a little at hearing Zen sound so defeated, but he steeled himself trying not to give in.

“Zen just let me leave, I’ve caused problem’s with your career and I-” He was cut off by the familiar feeling of Zen’s lips crashing down on his, Zen wrapping an arm around his waist and pulling him closer. He struggled against him for a moment, before giving in, kissing him back, tears of rage flowing down his cheeks, turning the kiss salty. Zen pulled away, tears in his own eyes.

“MC,” he began softly, “Don’t leave. As much as I love acting, I love you more. I would give it all up in a heartbeat if it meant you would stay. Please stay, MC.” MC sighed before lifting his head to look at Zen, smiling softly as he did, signaling his defeat.


V:

“Jihyun…” MC trailed off, unsure of what he was feeling. V’s hand was warm in MC’s hand, and even though it was something they had done a million times, he still felt butterflies in his stomach. They walked along a beach, their footsteps showing them the way back. “I know you say that you don’t care.. but your photos.. If it gets out that you’re in a relationship with another man, it could be very bad for your career.” He came to a slow stop, turning so that he was looking at V, the setting sun behind him making him look so much more beautiful.

“MC, I’ve told you, I do not mind.” He smiled, raising a hand and cupping MC’s face. “I love you, and I do not take my photos for other people. I take them for myself.” His expression softened even more if possible, letting his hand drop from MC’s face. “I.. I actually have a question to ask you, MC.” He flushed slightly, taking MC’s left hand in both of his, and getting down on one knee. MC gasped slightly, watching V and how the waves were around his knee, knowing his pant leg must be soaked. “MC.. I know that we cannot truly be married yet, but will you wear my ring, like we are? I want to marry you someday, if possible, and I want to have some way that everyone else will know that you are mine.” He paused, looking up at MC through his blue hair. “What do you say?”
