Goblin in Review: The Kisses

As specially requested by @mynameishassie​ Here’s a review/reaction of all the kisses between Shin and Eun-Tak in Goblin. Just to play around cause I have nothing better to do.

Ahh… good ol’ memories. The very first kiss between Shin and Eun-Tak in episode 6… a kiss so pure, innocent, and naive that all the snowflakes started floating upwards. What is gravity? Apparently it doesn’t work in the presence of these two sweethearts. So what makes this kiss important being their first kiss? Well this kiss set the stage for Shin to start thinking about life instead of dying. This kiss was initiated by Eun-Tak not because she necessarily loved him at the time, but because she didn’t know the consequences of Shin’s sword and what love really encompasses. This kiss compared to their last kiss is totally different in terms of romance and their mutual feelings. Shin was still only learning what it meant to be in love and Eun-Tak was still only desiring love. This is seen in their body language as Eun-Tak was struggling to stay on her tiptoes to hesitantly peck him and Shin’s shoulders were completely slumped forwards in utter dumbstruck. A perfect way to get our silly couple rolling. Despite this kiss being not hot and sexy, I appreciate this kiss as I love Shin’s reaction to Eun-Tak kissing him… to think this supposedly “weak” and “defenseless” girl can easily make this 939 yo Goblin confused and break down his defenses. But I desperately needed more than this kiss.

Now this was a proper “first kiss” of them being an official couple; what better way than for Shin to redeem himself by initiating the kiss while Eun-Tak asked for it in episode 10. The setting was perfect for our silly couple: fun date in a tent while drinking soju, a kick-ass entertaining performance, and a sweet and happy kiss shared between the two. This kiss was literally the definition of happiness as their kiss even has it’s own Sun shining a random light of unknown origin. It was quite hot of Shin to grab her face so gently as he kissed her and then Eun-Tak stole another kiss right afterwards. This made me love Eun-Tak more as she’s not afraid to ask for kisses… I understand why, lol. Just look at who her boyfriend is. I do like this kiss a lot, as said by Eun-Tak herself, “It’s perfect.” It was the perfect kiss to show how they mutually love each other after coming to an agreement that they will both fight to be together as compared to episode 4′s kiss. I wasn’t expecting anything hotter or sexier since our couple finally got together after jumping the hurdle of Eun-Tak finding out the truth behind Shin’s sword. But still, I needed more! lmao

The cute photo booth kiss. That’s all that really needs to be said about this kiss, lol. It was a cute and off-guard peck that Eun-Tak gave to Shin which left him flustered and giggling like a little girl. >.< The funny thing is that Eun-Tak had pure intentions while it left Shin thinking about (most likely) not so pure thoughts … this girl can literally kill Shin on the spot whether she removes his sword or not, lmao. I just can’t get over how Shin caught himself using “tiny” and “small” in the same sentence! And then he proceeded to say he wants to come here every day, lmfao. This entire scene in episode 12 is adorable and especially how pure Eun-Tak’s intentions were to 1) get a picture with him and 2) give him an excuse to see his sister. Of course, it wasn’t enough to satisfy my fangirl desires and I was desperately hoping… praying… for a kiss that would exceed my expectations.

Gif Credit | Rating: Hotness = 10/10, Passion = 10/10, Satisfaction = 100/10 

Now we’re talking… this kiss swept me off my feet when Shin turned back to give her such a desperate, passionate, and engraving kiss before his imminent death. THIS WAS THE KISS WE WERE ALL WAITING FOR 13 EPISODES LATER!!! Just look at this beauty! Till this day… I love this kiss so damn much, it’s the kiss of the century. Just look at how Shin cupped her face as he kissed her with such a passion knowing that he might disappear forever. Look at Eun-Tak unable to say or do anything as she just closed her eyes in compliance… worried why he would suddenly kiss her like that. It was the perfect hot and passionate kiss to show how our couple loves each other and wants to be together. THEIR CHEMISTRY WAS OFF THE CHARTS! OMO! The only that that disappointed me about this kiss was how they DIDN’T FULLY CLOSE-UP FILM IT! Like why you gonna film a friggin hot kiss but not show us the whole thing close up??? Ugh… That was the good stuff there. >.> Despite my love for this kiss, I was praying that an even better kiss would happen once she was 29 yo. 

Gif Credit | Rating: Feels = 10/10, Longing = 10/10, Satisfaction = 10/10

This kiss was sooo good… a slightly melancholic kiss that was filled with feels as Shin immediately embraced a frantic Eun-Tak into a kiss as she finally remembered him. All I can say is that this kiss was so good from the angle it was filmed, from how it focused on Shin’s hand tightening on her, and to how both Eun-Tak and Shin’s eyes were filled with so much pain, sadness, and longing for each other. I started ballin like a baby cause they needed to be in each other’s arms and I was so happy when she finally remembered him! Ugh… To think this all happened in episode 15… T.T But this wasn’t the kiss I was waiting for… there was something else I needed to see from the episode 14 preview. 

Gif Credit | Rating: Lovey Dovey = 10/10, Rainbows & Unicorns = 10/10, Satisfaction = 8/10

Just another really lovey dovey peck between the two… oh wait… two pecks cause Shin wanted another one, lmao. I just love their height difference… *incoherent giggling* BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR THE BEST KISS DAMNIT! DON’T FAIL ME GONG YOO!!! 

Drumroll…. 

Gifs Credit | Rating : Sexiness = _(꒪ཀ꒪」∠)_, Dirty thoughts = ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ), Satisfaction = ∞ w/ too much salt

What more can I say about how much I am absolutely obsessed with this long over-due sexy make out between these two? Just look at how Shin launched at her… but at the same time Shin is such a gentleman as he stopped to make sure she was okay with it.. OF COURSE she would reply back enthusiastically! BUT I DIED WHEN SHE JUMPED AND WRAPPED HER LEGS AROUND HIM! OMG! AND FOR THE LOVE OF ALL MAKE OUTS, when Shin started planting kisses on her face and she was smiling from enjoying his touch… that was the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen!!! BUT DAMNIT! WHO THE FUCK CUTS IN THE MIDDLE OF GONG YOO AND KIM GO EUN’S KISSES??? WHY WOULD YOU DEPRIVE US OF THESE TWO WONDERFULLY AMAZING KISSERS??? WHY COULDN’T YOU SHOW US THE WHOLE DAMN THING??? (╯°益°)╯彡┻━┻

Seriously, the only issue I have with this kiss is that they abruptly cut the kiss at the GOOD part. They could have gradually transitioned out of the scene instead of just cutting in the middle of the kiss; they had plenty of time to add 30 more seconds – oh for goodness sakes, I would’ve been glad to see another hour. PLUS, WHY WOULD YOU NOT SHOW SOMETHING YOU TEASED US IN THE FUCKIN PREVIEW??? Two lovers who defied time, God, death, and were finally together would NOT just simply call it a night after sharing a passionate kiss on the couch AFTER staying together overnight in fuckin luxurious hotel (with probably a huge ass bed)… just saying. ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ノ︵ ┻━┻

And that’s all folks… I can’t really say that I’m completely satisfied since I love Shintak so much… It makes me sad that Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun will probably never costar together again since it’s rare for people to costar together a second time. WHAT A SHAME! YOU HAVE TWO AMAZING KISSERS COSTAR TOGETHER AND THAT’S IT? Like I would have been okay if they didn’t show any skin… just some more steamy moments between the two because their love is so fuckin tragic that they deserve some more lovey dovey couple scenes. Ugh… just because I’m a salty grandma, friggin 15 age rating ruined it! At least the kisses got better and better and we got a few Gong Yoo certified kisses in Goblin. T.T

or, the clueless/teen movie au that i’ve been talking about for the last four months :)

preview:

Chris joins them with two bottles of champagne, one tucked under each arm. “Ready to get wasted, boys?”

“Just a second,” Georgi says, “Viktor’s having a genius moment.”

“Right, right!” Viktor says, glad to have Georgi’s support. “I’m into altruism now, Chris.”

“What’s altruism, some kind of pill?” Chris asks.

“It’s giving for giving’s sake,” Viktor explains, although he thinks Chris might’ve been joking. “It’s the joy of being a good person despite receiving no reward.”

“Lame,” Chris says.

anonymous asked:

Idk if you were asked this before but have you considered maybe posting the first chapter of your novel on Tumblr or something as a preview of what to expect from the story? It would let the reader determine if they would want to complete it or not instead of diving into Patreon for a story which they have no idea what it's about/if the writing style's their cup of tea/etc. :)

OH!!!!! That’s a great idea, actually!!! I just finished editing the first chapter yesterday, too, so its as clean and pretty as its gonna get for now! maybe i’ll make a post for it later today! Thank you!!!!

anonymous asked:

What did you think of last night's episode? Did you think it was good or bad for Nygmobblepot?

I loved it! I’ll get to your question about Nygmobblepot in a bit but first let me talk about a few other things.

Gabe’s utter betrayal was painful. Even after everything that he experienced, Oswald thought there was still ONE person he could trust. But nope, Gabe wanted to sell him to the highest bidder. It was a way to hammer in this lesson that no one in Oswald’s life had truly cared for him. When he says “I can’t take on Nygma and Barbara and the rest of them by myself”, it’s soooo heartbreaking because he’s realizing that he doesn’t have anyone.

BUT THANK GOD FOR HIS NEW-FOUND FRIEND. OMG seriously BLESS Ivy. Let’s imagine for a dark moment what things would have been like if she wasn’t with Oswald. Imagine Oswald trying to heal alone … imagine him being betrayed by Gabe while alone … imagine him just GIVING UP because he’s truly alone.
Ivy wants nothing from him but to be his friend. And Oswald needs a friend now more than ever. She heals him, saves him from Gabe and offers to help him build an army. I loved that she didn’t trust Gabe and decided to stick around to make sure Oswald was going to be okay. It was really touching. Imagine after Oswald tells her the detailed story of what happened to him. Ivy is going to be so pissed at Ed. I think even after Oswald and Ed reconcile, Ivy will probably never like him or trust him. Also, Ivy was at Sirens when Ed exposed Butch as the leader of the red hood gang. She saw that moment of Oswald holding Ed after Butch knocks him out. She knows who he is.

Now, to answer your question. Do I think this episode was good for Nygmobblepot? Yes. Let me explain. Watching Gabe betray Oswald was painful but watching Oswald get his revenge was AMAZING. At this point in the story, Oswald has been the victim of Ed’s many forms of revenge but he’s never gotten the chance to fight back. When Oswald loses it and kills Gabe with a gardening tool, I think he’s taking out some of the rage and frustration he’s been holding in. He might even have been imagining that was Ed. And of course, I don’t want him to kill Ed. In fact, there is no doubt in my mind that he WON’T kill Ed. But at least he got to make one person pay for betraying him. It’s a poor substitute but it’s something. From the preview for next week’s ep, it looks to me like Ed might be taking on the court of owls. And let’s face it, he’s probably going to have his ass handed to him. It also looks like Oswald has assembled some of his army and returns to the mansion (so happy about that!). But here is what I think will happen: Oswald’s resolve to kill Ed will waver when he actually comes face to face with him and realizes that Ed no longer hates him, but actually MISSED him. I think they’re somehow going to be forced to put their differences aside to team up against the court. And I am going to DIE when that happens. Can you imagine Ed trying to CONVINCE Oswald to work with him … just the thought OMG.

Either way, I am super excited for next week’s ep and for OSWALD’S NEW LOOK. WTF HE IS 110% HOTTER. RIDDLEBOY IS GOING TO CRY REAL TEARS WHEN HE SEES HIM.

since i’ve decided to post updates abt my fansite order, i realized looking over some of the pics abt how whitewashed they are. i’ve decided that i’ll only support fansites that don’t whitewash (only buy from fansites that don’t whitewash). almost immediately i knew i wasn’t going to buy the luminary’s project. they posted previews and jimin looks so white - almost like a ghost. the previews for heartthrob and scene stealer look alright but i’ll have to go through more of their pics to make sure.

i try to make sure that the stuff i make and reblog isn’t whitewashed but i think i need to be more bc some of the fansite pics i have in the past are.

anyway if you’re going to support a fansite (financially or just liking/reblogging pics) at least support one that loves the members for their real skin tone.

anonymous asked:

Do you like New Girl?

oh my god

fun story, whenever i first got my bangs cut, everyone that looked at me told me I looked like Zooey Deschanel

But to answer you, I’ve never seen the show aside from like previews, but it looks like something I’d enjoy

So I have been staring at these two images from the preview for a while because something always felt a little off. Not in a bad way, the best words I could use to describe it is that there’s a feeling of there being something that’s unresolved. But there isn’t any tension in the air.

At first I went to look back at episode 7 and we got this:

But in that scene there’s definitely tension (along with having something left unresolved) so it’s not that. The context of ep 7 was that they just had an argument but in the ep 12 preview Yuuri is definitely too calm for anything negative to have happened.

Then I was able to place Victor’s face. We’ve actually seen it way back in episode 3!

This is his thinking and evaluating look. It also has a hint of anticipation. Up until this point Yuuri has yet to show any of the potential that Victor saw and flew all the way over from Russia for, both in the personal respect (Yuuri’s been rejecting and running away from him) and the professional one (he was overweight and has yet to show that spark he saw in the youtube video).

Regardless of the fact that his choice is starting to look less fortunate than he had initially planned, in comes Yurio with the power to overhaul the choice that Victor DID make. Yurio has the power to make Victor go back to Russia, to leave Yuuri’s side with nothing more than a “sorry, I promised him that if he won I’d be his coach”. And Victor KNOWS that Yurio has the skill to win, he’s seen it first hand in compared to Yuuri’s which he’s seen only in 1 youtube video. So, Yurio showing up serves as a big wake-up call for Victor to get his mind out of the gutter and actually focus on the coaching/skating aspect of his relationship with Yuuri (and Yurio). This moment we see Victor considering everything that’s happened up until now and how his life could potentially take a very large trajectory change from this point on, depending on the results.

So this leads me back into the ep 12 preview. Victor’s making that same calculating/anticipation face. I think that it’s because Victor is realizing that from this point on, his life is going to make a large trajectory change and I’m convinced that this thought will stem from the talk they’ll have at the beginning of the episode. But this is by no means a bad thing! This analysis is actually written to serve as a way to show that Victor is NOT angry, that there’s NOT some negative emotion hanging in the air. It’s just Victor being Victor and mulling everything over, as he is wont to do.

So, at the end of the day, I don’t think that we have anything to fear from the preview. Victor’s just doing his thinking thing which isn’t abnormal for him at all. As extra consolation, Victor is still wearing his ring too. :)
