“TOP OF THE MORNIN’ TO YA LADDIES! MY NAME IS
It was just another normal day.
Jack had nothing special planned today, except recording one episode of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds with Felix, and playing some Overwatch with Bob in the afternoon. Maybe Signe
was going to come over and they could watch a movie together later that night.
Little did Jack know what was going to happen on this very day.
Most, if not all, Carats know that Jihoon’s birthday is on November 22. Well, it turns out that November 22 is the feast day of Saint Cecilia, the patroness of musicians. Jihoon is the most musically-inclined member of Seventeen.
Okay, I just needed to say that. Now back to your regular programming…
The following days, luckily no Anti outbursts happened. But Jack’s general mood got worse and worse. He was hopeless. Desperate.
Sad. And so frightened to end up killing Signe… he knew that another attack
in her presence would be deadly for her.
I don’t know if Arakawa really thought about it but I love the fact that she gave the pretty pink princess/alkahestrist we all know and love the name May/Mei. Depending on how you write/pronounce it, it could mean
美 (měi) “beautiful” which she totally is or 妹妹 (mèimèi) “little sister” which she obviously is to Ling.
But it could also mean
梅 (méi) “plum” aka plum blossoms which are known to bloom during late winter. The Chinese regard the plum blossom as a symbol of strength coz I mean like how many flowers bloom in winter? Plum blossoms also symbolize hope and endurance in difficult times.
In the series, May/Mei travels crosses a freaking desert to travel to another country for the sake of her clan. She stayed by Scar and Al’s side even when things were going rough. She had to transmute the soul of the man she cared about even if she obviously didn’t want to but did so anyway because she also had to save the life of that young man’s older brother. Not many preteens can handle that kind pressure and life-threatening experiences, but May/Mei pushed through it all and survived all while giving hope to others that they can survive too. Much like the meaning of her name.
So this week I decided to make tiny pixels of every member of achievement hunter and of most of the teams. Under the read more (I’m so sorry mobile users) I have each of the members seperately, as gifs, in their teams and gifs of the teams, and I’ll keep adding to it as teams are made/I remember them. I’m also working on Fake AH Crew and King AU versions. If you have any suggestions for me or requests I’m open for asks.
The walls began to move towards him, he felt extremely claustrophobic
and trapped all of a sudden. He fell from his chair and hit the ground. He knew that the low temperature and the moving walls were just an
imagination of his brain, probably caused by Anti, but blocking it out was
harder than he thought. In fact, he wasn’t able to, so it all added up to the
attack. He started hyperventilating.
“And I remember when I met him, it was so clear that he was the only one for me. We both knew it, right away. And as the years went on, things got more difficult – we were faced with more challenges. I begged him to stay. Try to remember what we had at the beginning. He was charismatic, magnetic, electric and everybody knew it. When he walked in every woman’s head turned, everyone stood up to talk to him. He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn’t contain himself. I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him. And in that way, I understood him and I loved him. I loved him, I loved him, I loved him. And I still love him. I love him.”
Jack woke up. At first, he didn’t know where he was, but after a few
moments he remembered everything. The voice, the pain, the agony… He was still
lying on the ground in his room, the VR headset next to him. Jack could see red
marks on the floor from his blood. He tried to stand up. He felt a dull pain in
his arms and legs, his head ached and he had a funny feeling in his stomach.
Jack took another day off to recover from the past Anti attacks and
their consequences, but soon saw that it wasn’t necessary. He felt like himself
again: energetic, quirky and bubbly. His headaches had stopped, and he had been
able to sleep pretty well last night. He ordered pizza for lunch, discovering
that he was hungry as hell, not having eaten anything at all for three entire days.
