listen up! we didn’t learn the whateverhameha or become the whatever masters! we’re not headed for the whatever line either! we were originally supposed to enter the final long arc now, but stuff happened, and now we’re here.
Quick report on Kubo and Yamamoto’s attendance to Concomics Guadalajara. I was in line for 9 hours plus two more for their short Q&A and am objectively dying, sorry for typos
ETA: When I wrote this it didn’t occur to me that it would get hundreds of reblogs before I ever got to fix it, now my half-deceased incompetent typing will live on forever *sobs*
I arrived at 6:30 am and there were already people in line jeeesus (lots were coming to see a youtuber though)
Gonna spare you the deets on the awful people in my surroundings thank @yuurinikiforov cos I screamed at her for hours
ETA: I just realized this sounds like it was Ally making me scream but in fact i tumblr-screamed at her to prevent from unleashing my frustrations on the gross fujos that surrounded me. Thank Ally because she got to read all that nervous-wreck garbage and y’all get to be spared
I had a two-day ticket so I was allowed in half an hour earlier and if not for that, I probably would’ve missed on the autograph line. They had space for 50 people (plus 200ish that had bought the express pass which was super expensive). I was #45. It took less than three minutes since getting inside for all 50 spots to be taken
(this was the line after three minutes. I was too lazy to take pics of it later, but it got to be around 5 times this at some point.)
ETA: According to Con staff, since the lines were very well organized, they actually got to sign quite a bit more people than the originally allotted 50. The Queens are so kind.
No photos, video or sound recording of The Queens allowed, except for this one taken by Con staff. They were giving away those postcards for the filthy casuals people who didn’t bring any official merch for the sign
i’m mostly kidding about the filthy casual thing bc I hate fandom elitism but there were a lot of people bringing FANART PRINTS and I wanted to gut them
Kubo would quick sketch a character of your choice. I chose Victor bc I love how she draws his huge heart mouth
I was able to tell Sayokan how grateful I am from the bottom of my heart and that I’m looking forward to the movie and she said thank you and that they’re workinng hard. I died. ETA: I wanted to say so much more but I was so nervous my Japanese came out really garbled and we didn’t have much time. And I didn’t get to say anything to Kubo because I didn’t want to distract her from drawing ;—;
Sayokan has a beautiful smile and I love her
ETA: She also had an aura like Meryl Streep in Devil Wears Prada, twenty years younger: A STRONG woman who takes no prisoners and is fabulous af. I love her with all my soul.
After the autographs, The Queens had a short stage appearance
There was a cosplay contest and the winners would get to sit in the front row for The Queens’ presentation. I didn’t take any pics but the standout for me apart from a flood of gorgeous girls doing Eros Yuuri, was a pair of girls doing Lilia and Yakov. The announcer clearly didn’t watch the show and botched Lilia’s last name, but the cosplayer had the attitude 100% on point.
Something I hate is people who say Yurio stressing the u, it sounds so wrong and a lot of people today were doing it and driving me mad
The stage was packed af
Kubo drew quick sketch of Victor while she and Sayo answered a couple of questions. They will post the video later today
Audience Questions logistics wasn’t very well prepared and even Kubo asked how it was gonna work. I was embarrassed for the lack of planning. In the end those that were lucky to be close to the stage got to ask the questions. Lia was praying for no stupid questions pls.
Q&A (translation partially mine partially from the interpreter)
1. What were your expectations about Mexico and have those expectations changed now
Kubo: I haven’t gone sightseeing yet but it’s my first time in Mexico and I didn’t expect so many people. [The people/audience] feels four or five times warmer than japan (make of that what you may, Japanese people say that about us a lot) Sayokan didn’t answer
2. Dumb question that has already been answerred in interviews about whether Yurio was planned to win from the start. As we know, yes, pretty sure both of them have said it before.
Sayokan added that his character development wasn’t completely planned though, and he evolved a lot during writing.
3. Which word do you think of when you thibk of Yuuri and Victor
Sayokan: Love (愛)
Kubo: She didn’t talk to the mic and people were still screaming about
so Ididn’t hear what she said but the interpreter said she said Friendship. My queens get your story sraight pls
HUGELY IMPORTANT ETA: Other people that were there have confirmed that Kubo gave a long answer that included 断ち切れない絆 “an unbreakable bond” and didn’t say anything about friendship. There was a telephone game going on because there was a JP-ENG interpreter and then an ENG-SPA interpreter and I don’t know how or why the latter got “friendship” but please take this into account, I don’t want people to hate on Kubo because I wasn’t close enough to hear her answer and the Spanish interpreter botched it.
Not important ETA: A girl close to me was yelling “Victuri” like she hoped they’d answer that and I was facepalming hard
Kubo also asked (in Japanese) if anyone understood Japanese, it wasn’t translated and a good dozen of hands shot up. She was surprised. Some folks screamed abd she said 落ち着け. One or two continued screaming so obviously they didn’t understand Japanese lol
4. Stupid question about whether they plan to develop Otabek and Yurio’s relationship.
Sayokan said they hadn’t fully decided on how everything’s gonna end in the movie so can’t say yet but look forward to the bonus on V6 (the interpreter said V3 and I wanted to gut him). Hoes I like Otayuri but stop trying to shove it on The queens’ faces pls
5. Do you have plans for a special chapter about the Lady skaters?
Sayokan said it’s definitely something they’d love to do but right now their focus is on the boys abnd finishing their story. Best answer for me tbh besides Sayokan’s 愛 cos I wanna see Mila skate soooo bad.
ETA: Forgot to mention this but a lot of people were chanting “Boda! Boda!” (wedding). Kubo asked what it was that people were chanting and the interpreter told them. Someoene else is reporting that Sayokan chuckled. There were two tall dudes in front of me so my vision was very obstructed and can’t confirm, but neither said anything out loud in response to it
Sayokan threw some gifts at the audience but My Queen is no pitcher and I was too far back so didn’t get anything *sobs*. Some were prints or maybe postcards but no idea of what exactly.
And that’s it! Theyll be signing more autographs and have another stage appearancw tomorrow but I can’t stay so someone else will have to report it whilst I die.
TL;DR I love them and my calebdar looks even more beautiful and I never thought that was possible and I’ll cry about this day for the rest of my life.
You watched Yuri in the mirror nervously nibbling on her
bottom lip while you wrapped her luscious chocolatey locks around a hot wand to
form soft perfect curls. All morning she had been a bundle of nerves for this
dinner and despite your best efforts to calm her down, her hands were still
shaking. “Yuri, you need to relax,” you told her quietly, scooping another inch
of hair up and wrapping it around the curler.
“That’s easy for you to say,” Yuri scoffed, rolling her eyes
at you. “I’m about ten minutes away from having a nervous breakdown!” Her hands
gripped each other tightly in her lap, the colour completely drained.
Unravelling her curl, you arranged it to frame her flawless
face, dropping your hand to her arm and squeezing it reassuringly. “I’m sure the
two men your mother has chosen are going to be amazing,” you said
hi! i’ve camped out for six of the seven twenty one pilots shows i’ve been to (ironically the one I didn’t camp out for was the last one), totaling 160 hours spent camping. for my first time camping i was twentieth in line, and for my most recent one, in new york, i was first. being first in line, it fell to me to organize the entire line for that show, so it was a good opportunity to master the practice of lining up. i’ve camped for shows in wisconsin, ohio, new york, and even for their saturday night live performance. i don’t mean to state this in a boastful way- i’ve gotten a few asks about camping out and figured i would put this experience to good use in making a guide for it. if you want to prepare for an upcoming show, or understand the line at your past show better, give it a read. i incorporated all of my experiences, my friends’ experiences, and things i’ve seen online (through an objective scope) into this guide, because no two shows have been the same, in terms of lining up. for the most part, camping comes down to luck: luck with the venue. it’s explained in detail under the readmore.
Your group and Wanna One are both featured on the Weekly Idol ‘Rookie Monster’ special episode. Sungwoon, your boyfriend, isn’t always great at variety.
Variety shows had always made Sungwoon nervous, something you were acutely aware of as you looked over at your boyfriend, sweat beading on his forehead. You were standing with your own group, CIEL, waiting to be introduced by Doni and Defcon, the two excited hosts of Weekly Idol.
“And this week, for our monster rookie special, we have a special group that have skyrocketed to success,” Doni began, “please welcome… CIEL!”
Your current promotions song, Let’s Rock, played as your group hurried onto the all-white set, bowing first to the hosts and then to the camera.
“Let’s…” your leader began your introduction.
“travel high! Hello, we are CIEL,” the five of you bowed, and Doni and Defcon clapped, you five doing the same.
“What is this?” Doni asked, doing the hand gesture that was a part of your introduction. You laughed, doing the motion again.
“It’s to signify travelling to the sky,” your leader explained– the motion was a simple point to the sky, pointer finger moving up before you waved your hand in a ‘jazz hands!’ motion.
“Ah,” Defcon nodded, doing the motion himself. Doni looked at him, making a face.
“Somehow, the feeling’s not there…” he said, shaking his head at Defcon. “Alright, let’s have individual introductions.”
When it came to be your turn, you smiled widely at the camera, catching sight of Sungwoon grinning at you, looking a little less nervous. “Hello, I’m (y/n), the member who will dance into your heart!”
“Dance into your heart?” Doni laughed, “what’s that?”
“She’s the main dancer,” Ara, another member, explained, and you laughed, nodding as you did a little dance before retreating back to the line, covering your face in embarrassment. Behind the camera, Sungwoon snickered at you.
After all the introductions were over, Defcon clapped his hands.
“We have another group in the studio for this monster rookie special. These boys are the number one in the heart of Korea, let’s introduce… Wanna One!”
You clapped excitedly as the boys hurried onto the set, doing their own introductions. You laughed a bit as Sungwoon attempted to be funny, Park Jihoon just shaking his head at his hyung.
“So, do CIEL and Wanna One know each other?” Doni asked curiously, “have you ever met before?”
You gulped, briefly making eyecontact with Sungwoon, who was obviously panicking.
“Our promotions have overlapped,” Jisung explained, “so we’ve become friends.”
“(y/n) was the one who first introduced us,” your leader explained, gesturing to you. In your mind, you facepalmed.
“Ah, why?” Doni pressed.
“I used to be a trainee at Ardor&Able,” you explained.
“So Sungwoon, you know (y/n)?” Doni asked, turning the attention to your panicking boyfriend. You briefly considered throwing something, screaming, or pretending to faint in order to draw the attention away from him.
“Yes, like (y/n) said, we were from the same company before she moved,” Sungwoon began, “we’re quite close, and so of course, the rest of Wanna One wanted to meet my girlfriend’s group.”
There was a pregnant pause, and if you looked into the sea of staff behind the line of cameras, you could see Wanna One’s manager facepalming, your own manager standing next to him, sighing as he pulled his phone out.
“Well, I guess we’ll be editing that out,” Defcon laughed awkwardly, and you covered your face, completely embarrassed.
“Let’s, uh, let’s move onto the first corner of basement level three,” Doni transitioned, a seasoned variety host. “Get ready… Random Play Dance!”
As the two groups shuffled around, you found yourself next to Sungwoon.
“Real smooth, babe, real smooth,” you whispered with a snicker, Minhyun next to you joining in
“Oh, be quiet,” Sungwoon replied jokingly, ears bright red as he bumped his shoulder into yours playfully. He might have been a dork, but he was still your adorable boyfriend.
We asked, you voted, and now Katniss and Gale are on their way to Camp Mockingjay! So, here it is, the next installment of our story, brought to you by @burkygirl. You have 48 hours to vote on the direction of the next chapter of the story. Remember: vote in the comments, not in the tags! And don’t forget to spread the word by reblogging. The more fans playing this game, the more fun it will be.
The fuzzy blue dice I bought for Gale’s 16th birthday sway back and forth from the rearview mirror. We’re bumping along the dirt road that leads to Camp Mockingjay in his father’s old ‘89 Silverado, a plume of dust billowing in the air behind us. Gale’s shiny black baby is going to have a grimy film all over it. I’m still not sure I should have agreed to this, but after a whole day of driving, I can’t wait to arrive and get out of this truck.
From a hilltop we spot the camp nestled in the valley below, hugging the shore of Lake Panem. There’s a clutch of 12 cabins in the woods and a mess hall near the beach. I see sports fields, a dock and smaller buildings scattered about. It’s either a kid’s paradise or my slice of hell. I can’t decide.
Gale gives a low whistle from the other side of the bench seat. “Check it out, Catnip. Just think, on our nights off we can canoe on the lake, go for long walks in the woods, take the truck into town to catch a movie. We’ll get to spend the whole summer together. Plus, we get free room and board. It’s gonna be sweet!”
Although the Gekidan Haikyuu track suits came out while touring Winners and Losers, the Engeki Haikyuu team have prepared them for members of past productions as well! Here’s Matsuda Hiro (Ikejiri) of Tokonami sporting his after recently receiving it from HQ staff! Since Tokonami only has one player in the stage-plays and the Engeki Haikyuu staff line the collars with the team color, Hiro-pon owns a unique jersey of which there is only one in the world! He’s very happy to have it.
This is now my 5th scenario (?) (WOOH FANCY) and this is a request by @jiminhow
Word Count: I have no idea
Genre: Good ol’ fluff
Message: I apologise if it’s not what you want :/ (hopefully it is tho!)
What could be the worst thing in the world for you?
The worst thing?
Family or friend dying?
All good, but for me it’s Park Woojin joining Produce 101.
I love him, with all my heart. But! I haven’t seen him in weeks and even when I watch the programme, the staff say ‘Park Woojin’ no one knows who he is! That pains me more than I can say, I’m probably more pissed about it than he is.
But luckily, there is one day. This is the day. What is the day? The day when friends and family of Produce 101 contestants go and visit them. Of course, they don’t know, it makes better TV that way. But when asked who he wanted to see the most, he said me, and I feel really bad about it because he could have picked his mum or dad and he picked me.
But regardless of my emotions I get myself ready and go down to the Mnet building and queue outside, just like the hundreds of other people waiting to see their loved ones.
“Aren’t you a bit young?” a woman in front of me turns round to ask.
“Oh I’m a girlfriend,” I explain.
She gasped, “your boyfriend must be very brave to reveal that he has a girlfriend!”
“It’s not really revealed,” I say awkwardly, scratching my head.
She gasped again, “good luck then!”
I bowed politely and she turned back round. Every time the line stepped forward I could feel my heart beat more and more until I was at the front of the line.
“Who are you here for?” the guard asked.
“Park Woojin,” I said.
“What’s his grade?” he asked.
"A,” I answered.
He raised his eyebrows, “relation?”
"Girlfriend,” I answered as confidently as I could.
He looked at the other guard and slowly let me in.
"Just wait in the lounge that says A on it,” he said.
I bowed and walked in, trying to find the ‘A’ lounge.
As I found it, I walked in, looking at everyone else. I bowed, looking around while saying hello. I found Youngmin and Daehwi’s families, walked over, saying hello and sitting with them, now just waiting to see Woojin again.
"You alright Y/N?” Daehwi’s mum asked.
"Do you think Woojin’s votes will be okay after everyone realises he has a girlfriend?” I asked.
"Well, I think they’d be stupid to not vote for him, that’s for sure,” she said. “But don’t worry, just think about see—”
"Relations of A Graders, please come through.”
She gave me a reassuring smile, helping me stand up on my wobbly legs and walk through the building. All the A Grader’s families lined up behind a big red curtain, as we did so we could hear the boys entering the hall. I wanted to jump down and run to Woojin as fast as I could but I knew it would only be a few minutes.
A member of staff came along the line, whispering to us all that as soon as the curtain went up, to stand still, the boys will come to us.
I nodded and tried to imagine my feet were glued to the spot, to stop me running to him.
"Remember boys,” we heard BoA speak. “Whatever you see behind the curtain, run to what you want.”
There was obvious smirk on her face as she said that sentence, I could hear it from behind the curtain.
I felt my heart beating the fastest it had probably ever beaten before as the curtain lifted up and I made eye contact with Woojin. Before I knew it there was 15 man boys (lets just call them that) running at all of us and I felt Woojin’s arms rap around my neck, pulling me into a hug.
"I missed you,” he said. “I missed you, I missed you, I missed you, I missed you, I missed you!”
He suddenly kissed my lips and I smiled into it before pulling away and whispered, “I missed you too.”
He pulled me tighter, lifting me up and spinning me around.
“Now boys,” BoA spoke as Woojin put me down. “This is your prize for all the hard work you’ve done and your encouragement for all the hard work to come.”
Woojin pulled me into his side, breathless while kissing my head.
“While you can have the whole day with them today,” BoA continued. “That’s it, tomorrow is back to hard work.”
All the boys shouted, “Yes!” back at her, bowing before going back to their loved ones.
Woojin pulled me into another hug, “the whole day?”
I looked round, finally realising the amount of cameras there were but I didn’t even care now.
I nodded into his shoulder, “The whole day.”
He pulled me closer, kissing my head, “I love you so much.”
From working with cameras with Woojin before, I knew that the one at the back of the room was zoomed into me and Woojin so purposefully, I pulled out of the hug, crashing my lips against his.
“I love you too,” I whispered, pulling away.
“The cameras one us isn’t it?” he asked.
I nodded, resting my head on his shoulder.
I looked over and saw Daehwi’s mum with Daehwi in her arms, both of them in floods of tears and I couldn’t help it.
I buried my head further into Woojin’s shoulder and let the tears flow, I missed him so much.
He chuckled, but sobs were obvious in his voice, “me too.”
I giggled, still crying, as he pulled my head out of his shoulder. Me looking at him with teary eyes, him looking at me with teary eyes.
“Your so precious to me,” he whispered, pulling me back into a hug, crying freely.
Let’s just say that it may have been emotional, but it was one of the best days I’ve ever had. I just missed him so much.
After the high touch we were led into lines of 20 people. The front of my line decided to split and I ended up leading the end of the line. They thought they would be the last line and get extra time with the members, but the were the next line called.
The staff ushered my line into the room to line up against the wall. When I was leaning against the wall I looked up and Jooheon was staring at me. He looked me up and down, while smiling at me. I smiled back at him and scanned down the rest of the line. Wonho was at the end of the line staring me down. He didn’t shift his eyes away from me when I caught him. This man just kept staring, until they called that the picture was being taken.😳😳
While the group was leaving the staff asked me to lead my line up to the group. As I walked passed Jooheon smiled again; Kihyun leaned down, smiling, holding his hand out for me to grab and told me thank you; Minhyuk did the same exact thing - they repeated what I did during my high touch; Shownu looked at me and shifted his eyes away quickly; I.M. smiled/waved at me and I did the same.😆
Wonho was last in the line and who I stood in front of. Smh.💆💆 That man is nothing but a flirt.
When I got to him I turned around and looked at him for a few seconds. I turned to say “Hey!” to I.M. when I felt Wonho put his hand on my lower back. I put my hand over my mouth because I was genuinely shook. 🙊He kept his hand there until I turned back around to face him.
I looked at this man from head to toe because he was looking godly. I stared in his eyes and he smirked while lifting his eyebrows. I continued to look him over and he started shifting on his feet. The girl beside me turned and told him “Don’t try and make yourself look taller,” but he didn’t understand her. He turned to her and said “Hmm?” and looked back at me. I don’t know where my boldness came from, but I looked him in his eyes and said “You’re gorgeous.” 😍😘He tilted his head, leaned down and repeated “gor geous.” I thought he didn’t understand what I said so I smiled, looked him in his eyes again and said “You are gorgeous” slowly so he could catch it. He heard me the second time and his reaction surprised me. He scanned my face and smiled a little before he caught himself. But he looked away from me while covering his mouth with his hand.🙊🙊 He kept his hand there for a few seconds until they were about to take the picture. Before I turned back around I told him “Don’t act shy now.“💀💀 That man was all kinds of rude and disrespectful at that concert.
After the picture was taken, I turned back around to talk to him some more and he was already looking at me waiting for me to speak. But before I had the chance I girl rushed from the end of the line and asked him could she get a hug. We both turned to look at her with a blank expression. 😐😐Of course he nodded his head and he put his arm around her. After she let go he turned back to me and I legit forgot what I was gonna say. So I just asked him could I get a hug and his reaction was totally different.
He smiled, opened his arms wide and motioned with his hands for me to come closer. I stepped into his arms and wrapped my arms around him. I spread my hands wide because I wanted to feel the muscles in his back. Don’t judge me his selfie made me want to feel them. 😂😂I don’t know if he tensed his back, but I felt all the muscles I saw in that pic.👀👀 After I wrapped my arms around him, he wrapped his arms around me. He pulled me close and squeezed me slightly. I had so many emotions running through me. It felt like he was trying to snatch my soul. 😭😭I was so close my head was laying on his chest. We hugged for about 10 seconds, then I let go first smiling at him. He leaned back and smiled while letting me go. Before I left I turned back to the other members. Kihyun, Minhyuk, and Jooheon smiled and waved at me. Shownu looked at me and nodded his head, while I.M. was talking to someone else. Wonho and I smiled at each other again and I walked out the door. I low key felt bad like I was cheating on Shownu.😅
That was the best night of my life. My first Kpop concert and I got so much love from my bias group. 😘😍If you get the chance to see them live, take it. You won’t regret it.🙌🙌
