Short drabbles request Wonwoo, it’s always been you, neighbour AU
Two requests for a neighbor AU for Wonwoo so I’ve combined them. This one uses the quote “It’s always been you.”
Growing up with Wonwoo was an experience you wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. Being at his side through every part of his life, defined your own version of normal. You knew him since he was the dorky skinny kid with the heavy books in his backpack that hurt his shoulders, and you knew him as he grew into the gorgeous young man that made most of the girls and some of the boys whisper behind their hands about his mysterious charms.
He wasn’t such a mystery to you though. You knew his handsome detached expression was the side effect of him thinking about the pupae life cycles he just learned about in bio- or the philosophies of the main character in his latest novel.
And beside, could anyone really be a mystery to anyone when you woke every morning to wave at the sleepy pajama-clad bed-head version of them through your bedroom window? You were pretty sure they could not. You were pretty sure there was nothing you didn’t know about him.
Until one day. Right before graduation, when you were both getting old enough to move on with your lives, you started talking about the future. You were sitting on the grass in front of your houses after school. And then he confessed, stammering and awkward in a way he usually wasn’t around you, looking up at your two houses, side by side, that he thought he was falling in love.
“What?” you asked, stomach plunging to your shoes, feeling suddenly sick with the thought. With the idea that your familiar world was tipping over. With Wonwoo loving someone.
You thought back to all the love struck people at your school, and the way you laughed internally at them and treasured Wonwoo as your own, and you suddenly realized that if he had fallen for one of them in return… you would be jealous.
“I know it may not be what you want to hear,” Wonwoo said, finally looking over at you. His dark intense eyes were too much. You looked away. “But when we talk about forever, I can only think about one thing. I can only think that I… I don’t want to leave these little houses across the way from each other. I don’t want to stop falling deeper in love every day. I don’t want to leave you.”
“Me?” you asked, eyes flying back to his. “What-”
“Of course you,” Wonwoo laughed, face softer than it had ever been before, the look he reserves only for you. “It’s always been you.”
Baekhyun Birthday Project: EXO’rDIUM in North America!
Hi guys! As many of you are aware, Exo will be coming to North American at the end of April! I am lucky enough to be given the opportunity to attend, and I was thinking since it’s so close to Baekhyun’s birthday (May 6th) and many of us cannot attend his party, why don’t we make the tour special? I think it would be cool if we could sing happy birthday to him during the concert! As international fans we are not always given the opportunity to participate with events such as birthdays, so this could be a good chance for us to create a special moment with Baekhyun while celebrating the happy occasion of his birthday! Some information below:
We will start singing during the last ment only during Baekhyun’s speaking part. Let’s be respectful to all of Exo and not cut them off while they’re talking! We will start to sing right before he talks.
The last ment takes place after “Lucky One.” That is when we will begin to sing!
Because of the short notice and lack of funds, it is not possible for me to make banners for us to hold up, but it would be nice if we could all raise our lightsticks or turn on our phone flashlights to create a silver ocean for our Baekhyun!
We will be singing the English version of the “Happy Birthday” song (This may be obvious but! just want to clarify lol)
This project is aimed to take place at the Newark concert, April 25th. This is simply because that is the only concert I will be attending, and it’s not really possible to create a project for shows I’m not attending. BUT, if it’s a success, I encourage those who are attending the LA or Mexico City shows to carry on the project!
Please spread the word! On Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram - wherever you find home in the fandom. The key to this taking off is communication. Also, my friends and I plan on spreading word in the line the day of the concert, feel free to do so as well!
I hope that we can spread word of this project and create a special memory for Baekhyun! As we all know, he adores Aeris and even his birthday is an excuse for him to spend time with them, why not make it so he can celebrate his birthday with ALL of his fans? Even if you are not attending the concert, please reblog & share this so we can spread word!
If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me! As I said above, I will be attending the April 25th concert in Newark and I will be available at the venue that whole day, don’t be a stranger :)
So, I won’t be active properly until July. This month I have my final exams for high school (my bac) and I really shouldn’t have procrastinated a whole year lol. Oops. Anyway, I won’t be reblogging or posting anything (I will like things tho mostly from my phone from time to time and answer messages).
And THAT is why you never judge a book by its cover.
Got on a bus, sat down, alone, as usual. I was a little further forward than usual because I let a nice family sit in the back and this was my island of solitude.
Then the bus took on more passengers. And more.
Eventually I pulled my bag in and scooted to the window as the bus filled up more–and almost immediately the seat beside me was taken.
He was an older man with a bag, and I just locked myself into my phone and gave him some slight acknowledgement (I don’t really interact with strangers because anxiety).
I noticed that he had a black bag, and he was muttering, I couldn’t tell if it was to me or to someone else (I think it was me). I avoided contact, though, retreating further, and pretended not to notice the sight or smell when he pulled out a can of cherry alcohol.
But eventually ignoring him became more awkward and felt ruder, so eventually I put my phone down and started talking back. Here’s what I learned:
–His name is Bobby Joe
–He’s never been on a date in 49 years
–He has diabetes and his foot is working poorly
–He has a 31-year-old son who is a carpenter
–He is also a carpenter
–He is missing his right middle finger but did not lose it to a saw
–He lost it in Afghanistan
–Along with all but one of the men in his vehicle
–He also got shot in the lower abdomen (he showed me)
–He also got addicted to Heroin there like pretty much everyone else
–He has been clean for THIRTY TWO MONTHS do you know how proud I am of that man?
–I sadly already forgot his exact quote but it was something like “I am me and that’s all that matters” it was inspirational
–The man is a goshdarned American war hero and I was about to dismiss him as a creepy old drunk who never made anything of his life
I know this is a very specific story and my white male privilege gives me a lot of leniency in how Scary people can be, but…wow
30 years old and I still have so much more to learn.
But you know what?
The 29-year-old me never marched into a conversation like that. The 29-year-old me would have kept his judgment and his misinformed beliefs. But I am 30.
30 is different. I’ve grown. I’ve leveled up.
So happy birthday to me. May God bless me with many more, and may I use what I have already been given to help others. There’s a lot more life to live, and a lot that I have lived that I can share.
Imagine Chanyeol hiding away from Kyungsoo to give him some peace and quiet as a birthday gift. Chanyeol’s too busy munching on leftover oreos while crammed in the pantry to hear Kyungsoo asking everyone where Chanyeol had gone off to. Chanyeol’s also too busy regretting eating those expired cookies to notice Kyungsoo’s unintentionally bright smile when he finds him.
“Happy birthday, Soo,” Chanyeol mumbles, trying to wipe the crumbs spilling from his mouth. He’s a bit surprised when Kyungsoo ignores the mess and crunches him into a tight hug.
“Just for today,” Chanyeol hears Kyungsoo whisper. “Just for today.”
i still remember the first time i saw this, and had no idea wtf was happening. i obviously dont speak Korean, hahaha and i just laugh when they laugh. but the moment Hobi our spirit smiley animal began to cry because his parents popped up in the messages, i just lost it and cried too. and i am crying as i write this because the video is playing and i am a mess.
another year, another birthday, and another great hopeful day. i am happy for Hoseok’s existence and am grateful for his debut. his eyes will always capture my soul. his rapping will always take my breath away. his singing will always and forever leave me speechless. and his wild personality will always make me love him and so much more.
i can’t wait for the derp photos and the next surprise he’ll receive on his birthday. :”))

give thanks for Yuri Kochiyama’s righteous beautiful soul for nurturing revolutionary consciousness in so many. She’s also a taurus and shares the same birthday, May 19th, with her close friend Malcolm X.
Happy birthday to four of my favorite people! There are much more achievements than I have listed here and I know there are many more to come. I am very proud to be your fan and will be so for life.
