so proud to be a fan of yours

anonymous asked:

You inspired me to start writing fan-fiction and I just wrote the first sentence! I know it's probably stupid but I just really wanted to thank you and let you know that I really love all your fan-fiction, and literally everything you write!

That’s so exciting omg!!! I’m so proud of you congratulations, good luck with the fic and thank you so much for the lovely compliments!!!!!!!! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

anonymous asked:

did your mom doubt you at first when you came out, if so what did you do. Also how did you convince her to let you cut your hair. Hope recovery is going well me and all of your fans are so proud of you!!🎉🎉

she found out in 2014 and didn’t even begin to accept me until 2017, if that explains anything. I was literally kicked out of the house for 8 months.

Today is special.

Why?

Because today is the 4th anniversary of a group of boys who started from the bottom and climb, and are still climbing as high as they can.

These boys are Bangtan Boys also known as BTS.

For me BTS is one of the most special groups to exist.

Because not many groups are willing to tell their stories.

BTS does not have to rely on buying song after song after song. After all, they have the freedom to produce, experiment, write and create the art they want to create. It is amazing to see a group of people who write in an industry where many companies opt out of letting their idols write and create and instead choose to mostly buy songs, giving their artists minimal freedom in many cases. BTS, however, does have that freedom and uses it to their full advantage.

Look at the solo songs or any of their solo work as an example.

Rap monster tackles society, Illness, pressures and so much more in his songs. He shows worry for the new generations and generations to come faced with injustice, anxiety and depression. He worries about his members and shows understanding and compassion. In fact, he uses lyrics as an expression of his inner struggle and philosophical thoughts and in turn opens conversations that are very much needed in society. He works hard to communicate with all the fans and in general, he works hard to communicate with people. He does not just show interest in his fans but in society as a whole.

Suga too wanted his voice to be heard. He said it himself, he was not content with just rapping. He wanted people to listen to what he has to say too. And definitely, Yoongi has a lot to say. At first, he seemed like such a closed person, but his mixtape gave everyone such an amazing insight into his mind. From the depression, to self hate, to allusions to suicide and social anxiety he bears his soul to all, in turn trying to help others realise that they are not the only ones going through a hard time. And if he continues to recover(because I believe that even if one gets better, some demons still remain and always have to be fought)  then hopefully so can we. And also, how can one not love a man who reveals a song called ‘first love’ only to reveal that his first love was his piano, when that is such a beautiful and sincere confession.

Originally posted by junghosyub

J-Hope’s mixtape is one I definitely cannot wait to hear. Because I feel like he is a member who also has a lot he wants to say without any constraints. Hoseok ’s song ‘mama’ just showed how amazing he is as a person. He had a solo song in the Wings album, like all the members and he chose t write a loving and sincere song thanking his mum for all that she has ever done for him. For how she loves and supports him in this difficult path. He seems to struggle with feeling like he is not good enough. As a member or son. I hope that’s not true. He also shows his emotion through his dance.

Not these three members show us the most of what they are feeling through writing and producing. However, the other 4 are also working hard on developing as writers, amazing sure to develop and also express themselves.

Taehyung showed his inner turmoils and  guilt over an unknown action or feeling in stigma as he apologise see to his brother and sister and even worked with Namjoon to produce a new song, showing a different side of him, as well as a different singing technique deciding to tell different stories with his voice and songs. Taehyung is also proving himself to be a very good actor, telling more than than just his story.

Originally posted by pjkook

Jungkook, in my opinion, seems to struggle most with expressing himself. And I believe that that is normal. After all from a young age he has been a trainee with means that most things kids get to experience such as relationships, getting in trouble, love, sex and more this teen was not allowed to have. He was too busy being 'manufactured p’, as some may say, to be the perfect idol. However, since he grew up in the public eye for quite a long time we see how his story is his progress as he tries to gain confidence and express himself asking Namjoon for help with his songs 'Begin’ as well as by releasing amazing covers.

Originally posted by jeonity

Jimin, like Hoseok shows his emotions through dance but also has shown us how he can communicate through his vocal colour and his emotional expression. He worked on 'LIE’ showed confusion, loss and heartbreak as he is 'caught in a lie’ and while we do not know the reason for these emotions we can appreciate them better and can relate them to us and our situations.

Originally posted by jikookfantasy

Lastly, Jin is the member, who I believed was the least able to express himself, not because he doesn’t want to but because he doesn’t have the opportunity to showcase his stories as much. However, his solo song 'Awake’ is a true gift. It tells the story of a boy, not a man but a boy, who comes to the heartbreaking belief that yes, he may never be able to reach the top like others but he will continue to work just as hard and give his all to be better and better and better. It shows his loyalty and passion and that is what I love about Jin. But I would really love to see Jin tell other, different stories through acting.

BTS is already perfect as is and it is  we, ARMYs that have to keep replaying these boys because they do so much for us. They say and create so much for us. BTS is kind, thoughtful, they love their fans, show respect to all and are extremely humble, not taking what they have for granted but rather strive forward to improve.

So thank you BTS for being BTS

I hope you will remain together for very long.

I hope there will be no serious drama between you.

And I hope that we can stand together, BTS and ARMYs for many years to come.

If we can’t understand we will try to understand your problems. So please do not push yourselves and harm yourselves. We do not want that under any circumstances.

So thank you and happy anniversary

Thank you for reading

think about how lonely queer idols must feel… knowing most of their fans would turn on them in a moment if they came out… it’s hard to be an idol in general because majority of fans - even subconsciously - feel like they have some kinda of ownership over you and don’t actually care about your well being… but imagine been closeted queer. not only do they use you but they would actually hate you for just being queer.

i really really hope there comes a day when idols can come out and not be ashamed of who they are. on top of that, im so proud of all of them for having the courage to pursue their dreams and make music despite the bigotry that exists in their very audience

Okay it just hit me again. He really started his tour in San Francisco. And he invited Muna as his supporting act. A band of three queer women who are pretty outspoken about women rights and the LGBT+ community on stage & merch, who even have a song ‘I know a place’ who became the unofficial anthem for the Orlando shooting. And he went out there in a beautiful floral suit. He picked up a rainbow flag, waved it around, put it on his mic stand and later took it backstage with him. He made so many of his fans feel so safe last night and he publicly once again showed his love and support for the LGBT+ community. And to top it all off, he also sang 'Just a little bit of your heart’ and didn’t change the pronouns.

He did that. It’s a pretty big deal. And so important and encouraging for so so many. Harry, I’m proud of you. We see you. Keep prancing and dancing and being fabulous. You’re amazing. 💃🏼 🌈

Happy 23rd birthday to the beautiful, kind, humble and hardworking Jackson Wang! 

Words can’t even begin to describe how much you mean to me and so many others. Though you don’t know it, you’ve helped me go through so many hard times by just being yourself and bringing me comfort with just a smile. I’m always so proud of you and proud to be able to say i’m your fan! Your effort and hard work never go unnoticed and your love and care for your fans is so inspiring and heartwarming - I could never ask for a better person to love. Thank you for staying true and being you Jackson ♥️

What we’ve gone through as people, learning about the importance of the LGBT representation on TV, and really understanding the community. A lot more than we potentially did before, adds a certain pressure because then you want to make sure that you do it justice, and make them proud in every moment. And every time I look into Kat’s eyes, I see the importance of it, a lot more than I possibly did before.

julieandem: Dear coolest fanbase on earth

Today It’s been a month since Skam ended. I’ve been so tired of writing that I couldn’t even write a insta post. But today I can, and you deserve a thank you post, because fuuck, what a tsunami of love you created online the days after the finale!! It was so fantastic to follow, and I got so fucking proud and moved. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for all the messages you write me. I can’t answer everything, but I see each and every one of you.
And thank you so much for Thankyouskam.com - it’s so inspiring to read all your stories <3 *cries in norwegian*

 I don’t know what to do next, but I promise to keep you guys updated. And no matter what, I promise to keep telling stories to everyone who wants to listen. Hope you have a great summer and that you never stop spreading love totally shameless around you. <3  (To all the international fans: Sorry for writing in Norwegian, it doesn’t mean I dont love you, it only means I really LOVE that you are learning my tiny language and that you are helping each other translate. I think It’s very beautiful <3)

emupoppyjay  asked:

I'm grateful to be a fan of someone who makes people all around the world happy and smile. Who puts so much work into the videos they display. I'm just grateful to a fan of you. You do so much for us. Gosh my world would be a little dark without your positivity/silliness. You say youre proud of us. Well I'm super PROUD of you. On another note: I'm glad your mums surgery went well and hope the next and recovery goes well. Lots of love from me to y'all - Jc

I’m drifting off to bed, and this lovely message just made me tear up. You all don’t know how happy it makes me to be able to create these videos and hopefully entertain and support. It’s an absolute dream come true that I didn’t think was gonna be possible, and it’s such an honor. If I’ve managed to make you feel better or smile, it’s a blessing. I’m gonna try and sleep now, thank you so much for taking time to write this.

Can you guys stop being mad at fans for being… fans?? It’s normal to want the best for your idols, want them to be happy, healthy and save. It’s okay to worry about their well-being. It’s okay to hype up your faves. It’s okay to support your idols and want them to win awards and achieve more. It’s normal to be proud of them. That’s literally what a fan is for. So can some of you stop shitting on people for doing completely normal things??

The Foxes and College Yearbook Quotes:
  • Andrew Minyard: “Fuck Stickball and fuck Josten”
    • Just to piss Kevin off. Poor Day’s brain fried for a second and he went “Wait, are you changing sport?! What the fuck, Andrew! What is this stickball?! What did they promise you?!” Wymack had to be the one to tell him. 
    • Neil smiled at the quote as if he was looking at a little fluffy kitten; he got his percentage raised for that.
  • Kevin Day: “Be the Queen on your chessboard. Kings never get too far.”
    • The poor kid spent weeks polishing his quote and now Foxes spend most of their times after reading it fake-bowing in front of him.
    • Jean sends him a picture when Renee shows it to him; it’s just his own face with an arched eyebrow. Kevin answers “Fuck you”, but he smiles seeing Jeremy making faces in the background.
  • Neil Josten: “Ohana means family, and family means no one gets abandoned or forgotten - Lilo and Her Weird Alien Dog” 
    • The upperclassmen cried.
    • It took them a week to realize Neil honestly thought the name of the movie was “Lilo and Her Weird Alien Dog” because that’s what Andrew told him.
  • Aaron Minyard: “Two chemists go into a restaurant. The first one says -I think I’ll have an H2O.- The second one says -I think I’ll have an H2O too- and he died.”
    • he actually wanted to write “Fuck you, Andrew” but Katelyn glared at him until he changed it. 
    • Andrew gets it, but refuses to laugh on principle.
  • Nicky Hemmick: “I’m GGG: Getting Gayer and German”.
    • He employed Erik’s help, but the man is a sap and only offered romantic/sentimental quotes, so he had to find something on his own. 
    • He fought the whole editorial department to have his quote in rainbow colors and he won.
  • Danielle Wilds: “I wear steel-ettos to better kick you in the balls.”
    • It may or may not be a reference to a certain Raven and a certain banquets and she may or may not take a picture of the quote “@” him on twitter.
    • Allison, Matt and Nicky all high five her when they read it.
  • Allison Reynolds: “Pretty hurts, steals your money and burns your house.”
    • She fucking loves the Wonder Woman movie, so her other option was “Men are unnecessary for pleasure.
    • But after Raven fans trashed her cars she wanted to make a statement, that she could hit back thrice as hard. 
  • Matt Boyd: “Danielle Wilds, would you make me the honor of taking me as your Proud Trophy Husband?”
    • Yup. He honest to God asked her like that. They had actually talked about it already, stuff like “What if I asked you to get married?”, “Now?!”, “No! More dramatically and stuff, but yeah… Would you say yes?”, “Make it more dramatic than Aaron and Katelyn and we have a deal.”
    • He brought Dan the yearbook and then knelt when she was distracted reading so when she lifted her eyes there he was, with a ring and blushing to the roots of his hair. Nicky filmed everything.
  • Renee Walker: “To be kind and to be helpless are two different matters.”
    • Nicky finds it adorable, while Neil and Andrew read it for the threat it is and their smiles are creepy and dark for a moment there. Allison looks proud.
    • Jean retweets the picture of the quote and adds “@Alvarez, this is why you don’t fight her”. It’s the first tweet ever in which he “@”s someone and the Trojans are so proud they collectively send Renee flowers.

Bts reaction to their s/o giving them hickeys

Concept: You left lots of hickeys and bite marks all over their shoulders and neck, but they left much more on you and yet dare to complain

Seokjin: Jin would act all dramatic trying to tease you. 

“Jagi, I can’t believe what you did to me! Jungkook noticed the hickeys from yesterday and made fun of it!” You get grumpy.

 “Oh no, one little hickey was seen! Did you already forget how my body looks like? It’s about ten times worse and I had a meeting today!” He starts laughing as you show him your marked body.

 “Someone did a good job yesterday, I’m sorry for complaining”

Originally posted by bwiseoks

Namjoon: Namjoon would be really cocky. “Babygirl, I think I need to punish you. Look at my body!” He takes off his shirt. You look at him skeptically.

 “What? What’s this look suppose to mean?” You take off your shirt too, exposing your body which is covered with love marks and bites.

 “Did you forget this?” Namjoon starts smirking while walking up to you.

 “Don’t be so bratty, you’re not a celebrity. It’s not as important to you as for me. I think you indeed need to be punished.” 

Originally posted by aestheticpinkjoon

Yoongi: Yoongi would most likely stay calm. “Don’t you think you took it too far yesterday?” He’d say looking at you.

“Excuse me but take a look at your work!” You show him your body and he starts smiling proudly as if he just won an award.

“The marks of my lips suit you. Even though I didn’t plan them to be so big…” He’d kiss you softly.

Originally posted by bangtannoonas

Hoseok: Hobi would be totally proud of the hickeys you gave him. He’d wear a low cut shirt on purpose so everyone could see your masterpiece. It would be a bit embarrassing for him to admit though so he’d blame you playfully.

“I had no choice, I just couldn’t resist and push you away.” You’d start laughing.

“Are you for real? You were the one who wouldn’t stop sucking.” You’d joke and you two were laughing for almost an hour.

Originally posted by myloveseokjin

Taehyung: Tae would kinda be like Hobi in this point except that he would remind you every thirty seconds about your ‘unthoughtful act’ 

“My fans, the media, the members. Everyone could find out!” 

“Then why aren’t you wearing a turtleneck or something? I got it worse and I’m not exposing myself like you so stop complaining.” You’d tease him to fresh up his memory.

“Jagi!!! You liked it yesterday, remember!” 

“You liked it too, Tae. Are we done? I’m not gonna argue about it” He’d hug you and give you a kiss on the cheek. 

“Okay, I’m sorry.”

Originally posted by mvssmedia

Jimin: “Wow you’re such an animal baby!” He’d say looking in the mirror admiring the hickeys. He’d try to put make up all over his neck and shoulders but it turns out a mess. 

“Watch your mouth, tiger. I can’t even wear a skirt cause my legs are full of hickeys too.” 

Jimin would smile and give you a kiss as an apology.

Originally posted by itschiminie

Jungkook: “They’re gonna kill me.” Jungkook would also try to cover the hickey up. 

“Who is gonna kill you?” You’d ask. His face’d turn jungshook real quick.

“Don’t you remember that one time at the airport when fancams took pictures of my hickey and everyone got crazy?” 

“I have dinner with my parents tonight, and considering that I have much more hickeys than you and the strictness of my parents I think I got it worse.” You complained.

“Oh my god I’m so sorry I did this to you!”

What If BTS Had A Rap Battle With An AI? SK Telecom CF Filming Site Surprise Interview!

We were able to meet BTS, the idols who were noticed by Billboard, New York Times, Times, Rolling Stone, and other overseas media. In the past 5 months, they’ve once more proved to be the hottest boy group after being the first K-Pop group to win “Top Social Artist Award” at the Billboard Music Awards. Meeting them at the commercial filming site for SK Telecom, we were able to ask them some questions we were curious about.

[BTS’ Update Talk!]

Q: This is your 2nd year being active as the models for SK Telecom. How does it feel?

V: Even in the past, I would always go to SK Telecom whenever I bought a cellphone. Being active as a model like this makes me very happy.

Jin: I feel proud to be working with the most popular telecommunications company. My family has also been using SK Telecom for over 10 years. It’s always good.

Jungkook: I’ve also been using SK Telecom for a long time. Now that it’s our 2nd year being active as a model for them, it practically feels like we’ve become the face of SK Telecom.

Jin: To hear that the New York Times selected BTS under the “Music That Americans Love The Most” is an honor.

J-Hope: I still can’t believe it. I’m happy to think that we’re receiving so much love!

Suga: It’s all thanks to all the ARMY that love us!

Q: We heard that recently BTS was the only group among Asian singers chosen by the New York Times for “Music That Americans Love The Most”. Congratulations!

Jin: It really is an honor. I’d like to think that it’s not just thanks to Americans, but also to fans all around the world in order to get this result. I love you ARMY!

J-Hope: I still can’t believe it. I have the thought that we’re receiving a lot of love from America. I’m always very thankful to the fans.

Suga: It’s still puzzling and fascinating. I think it’s thanks to all the ARMY that give us love.

Q: Is there a foreign artist that you enjoy listening to recently?

Rap Monster: I listen to Vic Mensa, Mura Masa, and Lianne La Havas a lot.

Jin: Julia Michaels for me!

V: Lately, I’ve been listening to Bruno Mars.

J-Hope: Vince Staples!

Jungkook: Rather than listening to one particular artist’s music, I’ve been looking for a variety of music and listening to them a lot.

Suga: I’m always enjoying Vic Mensa’s music.

Jimin: I’m listening to Zayn’s music.

[Learning About BTS’ Mobile Life]

Q: You must have a lot of schedules overseas. How do you use your roaming?

Jin: We do have a lot of overseas schedules, but I usually just request automatic roaming and use it that way. Not too long ago, we had to go overseas for a schedule. But I forgot that I already put in a request for automatic roaming and contacted the advisor again to place a request. I remember being embarrassed because they told me that I was already using automatic roaming. Haha.

Q: Do you usually use your smartphone often? We’re primarily curious on how you use it.

V: I do a lot of things on my smartphone. Calling, texting, taking pictures, listening to music, SNS, and the Internet. I call a lot, I text a lot, I take pictures of the scenery, I listen to music daily, and I use SNS so I can’t be without my smartphone.

Jimin: I use my smartphone to monitor videos or listen to music. Also, I use it when I’m contacting another person.

[What Does BTS Think Is Happiness?]

Rap Monster: My happiest moment was our concert at the Gymnastics Stadium!

V: Me too, it was our first solo concert so I was proud.

Jungkook: After our debut, I’ve had so many happy moments that it’s hard to just choose one moment!

Jimin: As expected, every moment I spent together with the fans was happy~

Q: Until now, when was your happiest moment while being active as an artist?

Rap Monster: Our first concert at the Gymnastics Stadium. I can still remember it clearly.

V: I agree. It was a stage just for us, and I was proud that it was our first solo concert!

J-Hope: I think I feel the most joy when we’re having a concert and I’m singing while I look at all the audience members.

Jungkook: Um… I’ve had so many happy moments after debuting that I can’t pick a particular moment, but I think I was about to feel a lot of happiness due to the fans.

Jin: Every moment that I perform where there are fans. I get so filled with emotions that I feel like I’m going to cry. It makes me really happy.

Suga: I also feel alive when I do concerts, so I like it.

Jimin: Every moment that we meet the fans that cheer us on at a concert arena!

Q: What do the BTS members think is happiness? And what could the members put effort in doing together to become even happier?

Rap Monster: I think that happiness isn’t something grandiose, but something that begins from a small habit. Like a habit where you don’t compare yourself to others. Also, if you continue to devote yourself to what you like a little more and continue to believe that you’re right a little more, wouldn’t everyone be happy?

J-Hope: Oh, I feel similar to you. Loving yourself and slowly becoming satisfied is a big happiness. Let’s all have hope and passion in order to fulfill our dreams!

[What If An AI Had A Rap Battle With BTS?]

Q: Recently, an AI that was created using techniques from the 4th Industrial Revolution has been gaining attention. Overseas, the AI has already progressed to possessing the same skill level as humans in terms of writing novels and composing music. If by chance the AI came to challenge BTS to a rap battle, what would you do?

Rap Monster: I will do my best to fight it!

Jungkook: I’d like to carefully think that Rap Monster would completely defeat it…

Suga: I would not accept [the challenge]. How could I beat an AI! Haha.

Q: Finally, please say something to the SK Telecom insight readers.

Rap Monster: Insight readers of SK Telecom! It’s autumn. I’d like it if the heat passed by quickly. Please always be healthy!

Jin: Everyone, SK Telecom has a lot of benefits! Search well and use it in a variety of ways.

V: Please gives lots of interest to SK Telecom from now on! We’ll also show you an even better image. Please anticipate it a lot.

J-Hope: Please give lots of love to BTS and SK Telecom~

Jungkook: Thank you for loving SK Telecom and BTS. We’ll show an even more fun and diverse image from now on.

Suga: If it’s a telecommunications company, it has to be SK Telecom. I’m always thankful.

Jimin: I hope to see even more interest in both BTS and SK Telecom. Thank you.

So ToppDogg’s Hansol came out as asexual today. As part of the ace spectrum, let me say how emotional this made me and how proud i am of him. A kpop idol is asexual and came out in public to his fans, that’s so amazing.

I already saw people saying stupid shit like “asexuality is not part of the lgbt community!!!” and i swear to god, i am not here to educate anyone but do your research before saying shit like that. “Asexuality” is more than just “not wanting to having sex with your partner”.

I hope we can move past this and fully support him from now, and i hope he doesnt get to see stupid comments like that ever.
