I'm sorry, I don't understand your tags about your last gifset, the one about "the pretenders speech" between Flint and Silver. Maybe the speech itself is obscure to me, even after s4. Can you explain me?
the way i see it, which by no means is canon because we never really got confirmation and it’s open for interpretation, is that flint knew right from the start that silver lied about having no part in stealing the urca gold from him. in 210 silver said it was the two pirates who came up with the plan to sell the information of the gold’s whereabouts to jack. he excluded himself from the story, and flint, who was seconds prior to that all but cheerful and soft with silver, did a 180 and you could actually see him slam the door shut between them. he instantly distanced himself from silver, not outright calling him out on the lie (silver was using his best ‘i’m vulnerable pls don’t lash out on me’ act), but visibly struggling with the supposed ‘truth’. i simply don’t believe flint to be stupid enough to buy a lie like that knowing what he knows of silver’s abilities to manipulate and lie his way through everything. those two men silver accused were a) not smart enough to come up with that plan on their own and b) not brave enough to cross a man like flint. there was only one person on that ship who possessed both characteristics and flint had to have realized, or at least suspected said person was the man he’d come to refer to as a partner.
now, the little monologue from 301, if you regard it superficially, is about the weak pirates like captain hallendale and his men who cannot be a part of the war against civilization because they’re simply not built for it. flint calls them fools and pretenders, men who are unreliable and easily swayed by emotion or manipulation, but the way he says it, the tone of voice and the strange sentiment behind the words feels more like a jab at silver and less at those men. he’s indirectly calling silver out on his shit by comparing him to those weak men, the ones who were never with them in this war to begin with because men like them would always find an excuse to back out for their own sake. silver’s alarmed expression gives him away. despite gaining a place among the men and committing himself to this new life, i think he still found himself in flint’s accusations. he was a pretender and will remain a pretender, except his motives will change over time.
and this brings me to your question and the events of s4
silver spent a long time fooling himself that this life and the war were something he wanted. the illusion of power given to him by the men and billy helped a great deal in building that belief. he got drunk on it and convinced himself that the war was something he was capable of going through while remaining intact, emotionally and physically. once the reality crashed into him and he came to realize that flint’s war was nothing more than an endless nightmare that takes lives and loves, that it didn’t suit his needs anymore, he found a way to betray flint yet again. just like he did with the gold. he’d changed a lot over time, his motives changed, but his self-preservation remained intact. so, knowing what we know now, that silver betrayed flint’s trust in the end (though it wasn’t exactly a cruel betrayal, he did give him something to compensate for it), that monologue flint gave him in 301 became all the more meaningful regarding their relationship and silver’s character.
sidenote: flint’s reaction once he was told the truth during their shark date gives me all the more reason to believe he knew the whole time. he wasn’t angry, he was.. at peace. he was waiting for a confession of sorts and after silver gave it flint started to regard him as his equal again. actually smiling at him for the first time since before silver told the lie.
I just want to say that yours headcanons and interactions with everyone here just crack me up so fcking much, honestly, you guys are a true blessing. And, if it's okay, could I request the RFA+V+ Saeran falling hard for MC but they just don't notice, like, at all, and, God help them, they are trying their very best, what the actual fuck MC (it's okay if you don't wanna do the request, I hope you guys have a great day!)

make her red like that? Is she alright?
always putting your hands on her cheeks, trying to see if she’s ill and it just
makes her blush 10x more
MC she’s gonna pass out at this rate, get your hands off of her, just notice
that she likes you so the two of you can cuddle and she can get over turning as
red as she does!

the man has next to no emotions but when you come around he’s practically a
puddle on the floor- how in the world don’t you notice?
making sure you’re comfortable with anything the two of you do
invites you to lunch and you don’t like the restaurant, he’ll cancel his
reservations and find a new place immediately
DOES EVERYTHING HIMSELF. Not once does he ask Jaehee or another employee of his

you suggested (that is if it isn’t drastic)
LETS YOU PICK UP ELIZABETH? CUDDLE WITH HER? GIVE HER KISSES? DOESN’T THAT TELL

lightly brush his hand against yours when the two of you are walking close
together, and watch to see if he can actually grab your hand
you the Flynn Rider smoulder more times than you can count but all you do is
giggle because it’s your favourite movie. Your giggle is like heaven but MC whY

just plain sucks at sharing emotions
thought he was pretty obvious?
there are times that you’re the only one he’ll even acknowledge? That’s pretty
self-explanatory there MC
takes you out for ice cream all the time, walks around town, whatever you want.
He hates people, he doesn’t willingly go out for that. Unless you want to
invites you over to just hang out and play some games, watch some movies, or
sometimes just to nap
asks you to teach him how to cook/bake, so he can spend a lot more time with
you give him this dazzling smile that just makes his heart flutter and he can’t
even look at you
also like to hug him and he practically passes out every time. It scares you a
little bit because you can’t figure out why?? Is he okay??? Are you dead??
steps out of his comfort zone and hugs you back?? You’re so happy and you
absolutely love it! You think that maybe he’s finally becoming more social! You
have no idea that he only hugs you because??? It’s you

Can you believe I listen to Young Forever everyday and cry buckets of tears? Lay the song dissection on me ~F
oh my god fhasdlgadg there is s omuch happening in this song, i’ll try my best to address them best i can. you could spend three days listening to it on repeat and still find hidden parts in the instrumentation or the vocals or the soundbites i just ugh. while reading this, please keep in mind that i’m not a professional musician nor am i an intense music student nor am i even particularly good at playing my any instrument(s), so if you belong to one of the categories above: please don’t hate me lmao
1. electronic vocals (?)
in the original ver of young forever, the addition of electronic sounds manages to enhance the piece w/o overloading the listener. a lot of top 40′s lay on too much of these toggling effects after recording & i get bored of it real fast; it’s banal af and most songs ends up sounding the same. however, whoever produced this / was in charge of sound editing did a great job avoiding a lot of overdone trends !
the song opens with a really quiet, rather high vocal scat (for lack of better words) that is repeated throughout the rest of the piece w/o trying to catch attention. the whole point of this motif is to bring variety to the basic synth piano that starts off namjoon’s verse, but it keeps getting looped back over the chorus and is half-drowned out by the melody later on. it’s an interesting decision to bring it back again, esp when the casual listener won’t catch it.
when most of the instrumentation cuts out around the 2min mark with jungkook’s line, it becomes more prominent again, returning the theme of “quietude” back to the audience. the ending is pretty bare to the bones musically, but this high line is reminiscent of the beginning of the song, and brings everything back full circle. it’s drowned out most of the time, but i’m still in love with this tiny lil touch idk
2. usage of silence
right when namjoon’s voice comes in, the editor made the deliberate choice to leave in his intake of breath. this serves the purpose of making the bass line feel more impactful (aka that note drop u hear; i’m still trying to place what instrument that is) it’s the juxtaposition of the opening, the intimacy of the inhale, and how namjoon gets past the first couple words w only synth support all serve to intensify that first real heavy note
not to forget, hoseok’s verse builds up the tension so high before wiping out completely. it’s the two (? maybe three) lines of percussion and the synth (sounds like unwinding VCR tape) that crescendo with his voice. the whole thing seems to “break” as it reaches the climax, serving to make his scream at the end even more intense. the whole rap part has been leading up to it, and i get chills every goddamn time mmfalsdkhg
this is the same with jungkook’s part. the vocals have a more noticeable percussion line, and the snare (?) drum speeds up + crescendos into the silence. only when EVERYTHING drops out with him, do the busywork of all these melodies and countermelodies smooth out into clapping, the high opening line, and very obvious piano. there are also tons of layered vocals weaving in and out.
there is so much power in the silence as well. the silence right after hoseok’s verse where he yells into the deep, his lines climbing higher n higher every time, silence at 2:03 when jungkook sings, and silence at the beginning of the song. all of it is important to bring about a suspended, anticipated feeling to the listener ?????????and it makes things the song less cookie-cutter + more interesting
3. that One Bass Note
when counting in 4/4 (idk if it’s cut time or not lmao; both seem to work fine w the rhythm), that low bass comes in on the down beat of every two measures, so the suspension is more engaging than to have one every bar. it’s a really small thing, but it helps with the languid, drawled-out sorta feel that this song aims for.
both yoongi AND namjoon have very minimalistic starts to their lines. their rap begins on the pickup and the third word or so is really emphasized bc of the drop (idk what’s producing the noise tho / what exactly to call it). hoseok still gets that bass note, but he starts right on the down beat, which immediately changes the mood of the piece, but draws relatively little attention to it ????
4. musical buildup
the song gets built up verse by verse. namjoon starts with that high line, sparse piano chords, a sort of high-beeping noise that sounds like synth woodblock or something lmao. that sound goes off on the 3rd beat of every measure, while that bass note is the down beat of every second bar.
yoongi gets a fuller sound with low vocals, synth piano in a high ass tessitura (likely to compliment the opening motif), a really nice percussion line, and some nice low bass-y chords to bring in more depth. this is when the song starts sounding healthier, heartier, more gut-wrenching.
hoseok gets double percussion with the start of his lines. there’s a brassy, brush-like sound going on every beat, and a rat-a-tat-tat sorta thing that starts outta it at 1:06, and then takes up a life of it’s own. it has nice syncopation & it gets held off to every 3rd beat, right until taehyung starts singing. then it becomes a consistent line in the background of the song and it makes me nut so hard every time
this signifies a change in the overall dynamics and sound (???i guess) bc it calls in a more harried tone when vocal line goes In For The Kill. from then on, things stay pretty consistent (the electronic woodblock and that one bass note too!), except there are a bunch of easier heard percussion weaving in and out which is expected
5. layered vocals
throughout the song, there are tons of echoey lines, the ones that branch off from the main lyrics right away, others that circle back and show up while hidden way in the background. all it of constitutes to a hallowed sort of feel, like you’re standing on the beach or off a cliff or in a canyon with nothing around you for miles and miles and miles and it just???it takes that feeling of being Alone / at the end of ur time and really drives it home. this effect really goes with the theme of the song, especially when the lyrics turn out to be a death knell of sorts ;((
ex: there’s one really muffled, hidden line mirroring the melody at 2:21, and the first time i tapped into it i Freaked??? who tf is singing????? why is this so genius??? it grounds the half-belting real nice-like. not to forget the way bts harmonizes with themselves but also leave spaces for single words to shine thru (until filling out all the gaps by the end) goes so well with the theme of playing with silence in this song. it’s Genius, i’m telling you. Genius.
6. the singing itself
the vocal line has a natural progression from the lower melody to higher notes. jimin and jungkook both have high ass riffs in falsetto, but every one drops a third, i think. i don’t have enough theory under my belt to break the melody down further (like why the notes sound good or the sound is very unique etc), but the choral parts are my fave bit. i love the minimalistic instrumentals (clapping on the off beats god ,,, always gets to me) while vocal line sings their hearts out on top of it (ಥ﹏ಥ) and then all of bts joins in. the full multi-layered voice effect is so nostalgic n sentimental and that’s exactly what they were going for with this???
wow truly incredible i love bts
this song utilizes typical effects often heard in pop music, but they’re used in very unique ways that help the listener stay engaged. the sound mixing is impeccable, the melody is neither repetitive nor boring, and hidden instruments as the moving line are done tastefully.
things i never want to be asked/told again about being polyamorous:
“so…. if you had to choose one….” “do your partners have partners?” “I’d get so jealous” “what if you wanted to get married?” “who do you love the most?” “do they all know?!” “what do your parents think?” “who has the best sex?” “I could never do that!” “when do you think you’re going to commit to one of them?” “how did you get them to all agree to that?!” “Ohh so you’re like a player/swinger…” / “I saw this documentary about swinging!” / “I’ve always wanted to try swinging!”
I reread xxxholic a few months back, and many tears were shed. I doodled some of that sad glasses kid, but the style went aaall over the place as I tried figuring out what to do (I still have no clue lmao). Bonus Doumeki and Yuuko woo (I like Doumeki the best tbh).
Everything was so clear then. We were waging the grand campaign, good versus evil. These days, black and white just dissolve into grayscale. I was wrong. I suppose everyone feels that he’s the hero in his own story, but there are no heroes, no villains, just people doing the best they can. I’m sorry. For everything. My only justification is I did the best I could. | SNAFU
I love your blog and your writings. Can you please make a GOT7 react to you having a heart attack/difficulty in breathing in front of them? thank you so much. Fightiiing~~
of course, anon! sorry for the long wait! hope you like it! (some of the gifs are so big in size and i honestly think i just wrote the same thing for every member… lmao i’m sorry)
He wouldn’t know what to do in this situation. It might take him a few seconds before he could react to you have difficulties. He’d rush to your side and immediately would try to find someone who can help you out. He would remind you that everything would be okay and smile. (because his smile is the cure to everything) He would do his best and try to help you in this situation until the ambulance arrived to help you.
You two would be talking until you chocked on air and started to have breathing issues. He would ask what’s wrong and the suddenly realize you were in a state of emergency. Being a protective man, he would immediately take you to the hospital no matter how busy he was (if he can drive a car) He’ll be that type of guy who would carry you into the hospital and cry for help. Demanding for a nurse to take a look at you immediately.
He would think you’re faking/joking at first because you usually would fool around with him, faking coughing and stuff. But after you collapsed because of lack of air, he would immediately call for help. He would try to make the situation better by being funny and all hoping to keep your mind off of your difficulties. He’d lift you up and carry you onto the ambulance and stay by your side throughout the whole day.
He would be very concerned about your condition. He would set you down somewhere like a couch or bed and then call someone for help. He would try to help you in anyway possible, telling you it’s okay, before the ambulance arrived. And from then, he wouldn’t move an inch away from you since he’s worried about your well-being.
Like Mark, he wouldn’t know what to so at first. He’ll ask if you were okay but once you fainted in front of him, he would freak out. Since he has a pretty loud voice, he’ll probably scream for help hoping that someone would hear him. He’ll run around, finding something to help you in your condition. As the little sunshine he is, he’ll remind you constantly that it’ll be okay and will stay by your side until you felt better.
Bambam: (LMAO IDK IF THE GIF WORKS BUT HIS EXPRESSION)
He’ll be in shock but worried at the same time. He wouldn’t really know what to do but he’ll try his best and help you. He’ll call for help before comforting you. He’ll be that type of guy who repeats, “What do I do?” multiple times before the ambulance arrives and takes you to the hospital. Bambam will stay by your side hoping that you would feel better while holding your hand.
Much like Bambam, he’ll be in shock. He wouldn’t really know what to do but he’ll yell for help. He would yell as he will run around trying to find something to help with your condition. He’ll be really caring and remind you that everything would be alright until someone showed up to help. He would hold your hand as helped you ease your mind.
