Title: you’re what i deserve
Pairing: Lee Jinki/Reader
Genre: Idol!AU
Summary: Jinki never truly believed that there could be someone that made his heart race, but when he met certain idol…he knew that waiting for that feeling had been the right idea. Perhaps, someone like that it’s just what Jinki deserves.
Note: I’d like to dedicate this to my darling mutual @hitchhikingbabeh because she absolutely (does not) hates this man called Lee Jinki. Hope you like it!

More often than not, Jinki is good at hiding his feelings.

Yet, the phrase more often than not does not mean always and Jinki had his little quirks that people needed to study close enough to know what was what was going on through his brain. Most fans don’t notice when he is saddened and his eyes are asking someone to save him, they don’t notice when he is truly happy with tears marking his eyes and words not leaving his lips as he stutters out sentences of thankfulness. They don’t notice when he has allergies, when he is heartbroken, when his stomach is killing him, they are symptoms, feelings even, one or two that bubble up from time to time but he hides it behind that usual gummy smile. Not that Jinki was hurting, but he was human and humans went through changes so he doesn’t expect people to understand him. But fans are intelligent, some of them cleverer than others and when he starts seeing videos of himself on the internet about those feelings that he worked so hard on hiding, he was frightened. That video is shown to him by Kibum, who was always very aware of what fans said and what they didn’t, he was very communicative with every single one of them, though generally, so the least he could do was actually explain to him the entire situation. Shipping, so they call it, but he didn’t expect to be wanted as a couple by people with his crush, his real life crush, who was also a performer like himself.

Check in minute 1:34!  He is staring at her as she goes up the stairs to introduce the next artist!  So cute, Onew!” Kibum reads in the most serious tone of voice he can get while trying not to tease his friend, but a smirk was over his face when he saw Jinki’s widened eyes as he looked at the video, sitting down beside Kibum on the couch of his friend’s apartment. Truth be told, he had looked at her…how could he not when she was absolutely beautiful in that short dress he wore? But it had been a few months ever since he started crushing on her and no one ever caught him. “Here is another one,” Kibum clears his throat and he tries a few times to get a girly tone. “I can’t believe you have done this to us!  Please don’t date, Jinki!” Kibum sighs as he shakes his head, looking through comments of the two minutes video. “That one was dumb, absolutely.”

Hello, so this might be a dumb question (and sorry for my bad english) but do you think it's a bad idea to add some fanart into my portfolio for when I apply for art college? It's some of my best artwork and it's not nsfw or even shippy so I don't know, what's your opinion, can I use it?

If the school’s requirements doesn’t say you CAN’T include fanart, then it might be okay? I know I’ve heard that generally professors don’t want to see fanart, but in contrast, I went to the graduate showcase of my animation program last week, and there was a ton on fanart in their portfolios.. so I’m not really sure what the unspoken rules are. If it showcases your best work, and the portfolio requirements don’t say to NOT include it, then go ahead!

A little look back in history. I’m not sure of the exact years but from around 2005-2006, MTV ran an original, short-form programming entitled the “10 Spot Drop”. The program was meant to promote up and coming artists and would air during the commercial breaks of the the network’s most popular prime-time shows, most which aired at 10pm (hence the name “10 Spot Drop”). The clips, ranging from 9-11seconds in length, would feature original visuals and showcase track off the artist/band’s most recent album. Often, an would be showcased on the programs during or around the time of its release.

After browsing around on Youtube a bit, I realized Gorillaz had been featured on this program as part of the promotion for Demon Days. This video is comprised of all the short clips that were made for the album. I wasn’t able to find an HQ clip (which is too bad because I would have liked to make a photoset) but I thought it was pretty neat, and the clips range from creative to funny (, there’s something subtly hilarious about a cut and pasted version of 2D flying around in airplane idk). Anyhow, it’s too bad I never got to see this air on TV.

A Maestro’s Ordinance || A Rateo Love Story


Rylan danced and danced for hours upon hours everyday to get a spot in the school’s showcase. Rylan had to practice and practice or else that rotten musician Mateo would get the spot before him. He vowed everything that the dance program would have more people in the showcase than the music program. He sighed as the music turned off and he grabbed his towel. 

Rylan wiped his face and sipped at his water bottle. He grimaced as he saw the infuriating musician sitting at the door waiting to get in. He grabbed his phone and walked out of the practice room. “The rooms all yours Matthew. Not like you are going to get the showcase anyway.”

No, seriously.

It was something that I noticed when I first watched Phichit’s FS Program (Terra Incognita). But it was only clearly obvious when I watched JJ’s program (boy do i hate that dude but he can skate) and I knew it was better than Yuri’s. In the same way, I knew Yuri’s was better than Yurio’s before the scores were announced.

The thing with sports is that it would have been incredibly easy to just get these skaters to do more and more impossible jumps to showcase why they are getting better and better. It can be like Prince of Tennis until these skaters aren’t even doing actual humane moves.

But figure skating isn’t like most sports. Figure skating’s major component comes from presentation and boy does this series knows that!

The thing is Yuri on Ice is very good at subtly using better editing, dialogues within a person’s mindset, and better animation quality to showcase how a program is going.

It’s how the show subtly telling us Phichit is winning over Chris’s more technically impressive performance. It’s how the show subtly slowly improves Yuri’s Eros performance tidbit by tidbit – it wasn’t just fanservice.


And that’s amazing, because behind the series is clearly a group of animators that know how to really show instead of tell. It is probably why this show has been such a treat in all angles – it is because these people really think about how every single subtle details can play into the perception of a scene.


The United States is currently enjoying an embarrassment of riches in ice dance, which is by far our strongest discipline. The last world medal won by a US figure skater in any other discipline was won by Evan Lysacek in 2009. In the same amount of time, four US ice dance teams have won seven world medals. Half of the teams at this season’s Grand Prix Final were from the United States. Next week, our top teams will go head to head in St. Paul for the national title and a chance to represent the US in front of a home crowd at Worlds in Boston this spring. Who will come out on top?

“We all started working together on Grease in September 2014,” when the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton was in rehearsal. “I would press pause and talk about the Revolutionary War and then pause again for the dawn of the ’60s. The idea was about how to access the celebratory spirit of Grease — how to own and embrace the fact that we’re doing it live, this show about the first time you fall in love, have freedom.”

Kail hopes the trend for live presentations will extend to non-musicals as well. That’s of course where much of Golden Era TV got golden — the live broadcasts on Playhouse 90 and other programs that showcased the country’s emerging talents.

In the meantime, Kail himself is quickly returning to just such a project, staging Sarah Burgess’ new play Dry Powder at the Public Theater with a cast including Claire Danes, Hank Azaria and John Krasinski. “It’s a new and thrilling play by a writer to be reckoned with,” he said. Just the sort of thing success lets you dive in to.
