still going through all of his interviews

anonymous asked:

Do you have any ships within gorillaz?

no,

i am very intrigued by the relationship stu and murdoc have, not in the sense that ‘wowie uwu they are both so hot uwu it’s not abusive at all uwu they love each other uwu’ but in the simple matter that both of them depend on each other in a rather tragic way. i strongly believe that murdoc really does care about stu, a lot, he’s just a bag of dicks when it comes to coping with his past abuse. to be honest i hate all the ‘stu is still being held captive ect, he’s in the band against his will’ fuzz. he’d be long gone if he really wanted to.

in the last interview we saw how stu helped murdoc calm down when he started dissociating, and even though most people viewed it as a funny moment during the interview, it makes me really quite sad because we get to see how much murdocs life is still impacted by the abuse he had to go through as a child.

so no, i guess no ‘ships’ but bonds.

anonymous asked:

What do you think about how shaken Magnus looked in the last scene? Before he and Alec kissed.

magnus is in so much pain. he’s been through something incredibly traumatic and the memories he wanted to bury deep inside of him are again so vivid. no matter how many centuries it’s been, it still feels like it has barely happened

magnus also almost died. and alec didn’t believe him, even when magnus told him all those intimate details. alec had doubts but it wasn’t enough. so magnus has many trust issues (harry mentioned this in his recent interview)

and after everything that happened, alec came to him for his hair. he was so hurt, he tried anything to make the pain go away. he tried going back to more colourful look, he tried drinking way too much alcohol, he tried dancing

but despite so much pain, he knows how much he loves alec. and that hasn’t changed. that’s his constant, something that grounds him but it’s also something that can hurt him even more because love is never easy. especially between two people who are so different

(i think i made myself emo about this and i’m gonna cry again)

To all the new followers and people who liked/read my superbat drabble: You are awesome <3

Anyway, have a continuation? I’m a sucker for reactions


Clark Joseph Kent, I cannot believe you bothered to show up to work!!

“Um. H-Hi, Lois.”

Gah!! I could just-!” While Lois pantomimed strangling the soul right out of his body, Clark adjusted his glasses and tried to not listen too much to the whispering.

Who was he kidding, he was both ‘curious and obscenely nosy’, as Bruce liked to put it.

“Braver than he looks, if that’s real-

Actually sleeping with Batman, holy shit-

“How did Batman pick that up? I’m surprised Clark didn’t faint at the sight of the Bat.

“-cannot believe we spent all these years one cubicle from each other, and you have the audacity to keep something like this from me- hello? Clark?!” Lois snapped her fingers impatiently, and Clark blinked several times.

“Sorry. Spaced out.” Lois pinched the bridge of her nose. She breathed very slowly.

Series masterlist


“But I don’t want you to go” Seung hyun told you as he grabbed your arm and stopped you from packing, you turned to face him, cupping his face as you gazed in his eyes.


“I have to go, besides it’s only for one night, I will be back tomorrow” you said softly as you stroked his face with your thumb.


“Can’t I at least come with you?” he asked with a furrowed brow, you let out a light sigh at his unwillingness to let you go.


It had been two weeks since your fight with Seung hyun and he had become more clingy then ever, it was beginning to drive you crazy. He barely let you out of his sight, all he did was go to record with the guys and then come straight home, making sure to be beside you at all times and looking over your shoulder every time you were on your phone. You loved him but you needed your space, his constant watching of you was beginning to spark feelings of resentment towards him and drive you closer to the want of the other man in your life but it seemed he no longer wanted anything to do with you. When Seung hyun finally left you to go record you sent Jiyong a message apologising for not meeting up with him but he never replied and you had to admit it made you mad, really mad. So when you got the call to do a photo shoot for an interview you jumped at the chance, being away from everything that was going on brought a feeling of relief, even if it was just one night.

Spot Conlon and the Gay British Bakeoff

*cracks knuckles* Okay, im ready for this.

This is where he meets Crutchie.  Everyone is like how is this kid supposed to run around the kitchen with a crutch quick enough? No one believes in him but Spot instantly sees his potential. Spot and Crutchie become fast friends because Spot is only a few years younger and the two quickly make an alliance. Somehow if Crutchie needs to put something in the fridge or freezer that’s halfway across the tent Spot will carry both of them over there and get them both out. Crutchie could do it on his own but it’s a slower more risky process. In return Crutchie helps spot with his decorating at the end of the rounds because Crutchie is a speedster and somehow finishes his bakes with like with 20 minutes to go every round. No one knows how he does it??? But once Spot was having a harder time on his so Crutchie went to put his own in the freezer but he only could carry half at a time and some jerk decided to trip Crutchie Causing his bake to splatter all over the ground Spot knew that fighting in the tent was illegal (I don’t know if it’s really illegal I just assumed) so no matter how badly he wanted to punch that guy’s lights out he went and helped Crutchie clean it up and reassure him that it was okay and he still had time to make the other six the best they’ve ever tasted. He could still present the other six and he did. It was the technical though so Paul and Mary didn’t see what happened, and even though Crutchie;s tasted amazing, he got last because there weren’t enough. (If the guy who tripped crutchie had on some stage makeup to cover up the massive bruises he was sporting from our favorite angry boy, well, that’s something no one but Spot will really know)

Crutchie gets eliminated in the semi finals because it was a bad leg day for him. Spot helped as much as he could but he also had to concentrate on his own. When Crutchie was eliminated, that was the first time Spot ever actually passed out in the whole show. Somehow he kept it together all the other stressful times before??? But when Mel says “Crutchie.” Suddenly Spot passed out. Crutchie caught him and hardly has time to register what happened because what’s wrong with Spot???? Jerk guy laughs like ohh. Little spottie couldn’t take his boyfriend getting eliminated. Now this guy. This jerk guy is such a homophobe, and since Spot and Crutchie announced they have boyfriends, he’s been out to get them ever since. Crutchie nicely states like “Actually he’s not my boyfriend, I have a boyfriend though!! His name is jack and hes the best thing to ever happen to me. I love him.” The jerk guy doesn’t know how to say anything else because crutchie was just so nice?? When Spot wakes up and hears about this, jerk guy gets another black eye.

Now it’s time for the final. His signature bake is some type of whatever they’re making but its in the shape of a Crutch with rainbow colored frosting stripes around it. He’s totally honoring Crutchie and doesn’t care it doesn’t look normal and “You should have saved this for the show stopper. The design is amazing but not what we were looking for.” And Spot’s like yeah well I have something planned for the signature. But i wanted to show this one right now in honor of Crutchie.”

So like you said his signature is the inside joke. But the cake itself or whatever hes making is literally all striped through with a rainbow. And each layer of color? A different flavor. He has so much going on when Paul and Mary come over he doesnt even stop to talk. He’s just throwing things together and just kinda humming to answer their questions, not having time to chat. They all think he’s lost it and gone crazy. They interview race who’s like “I’ve eaten nothing but his six flavored six layer cake for the past two months and it’s still the best thing I’ll ever eat. Ever.” Once it’s made Spot still has like two hours left to decorate it and he starts freaking out like I’m behind in running out of time!!!! And everyone in the tent is like???? you have two whole hours and your bake is already out of the oven??? But yeah his design is so intricate and well thought out. Race has obviously never seen it before because it’s a surprise. He finally gets it done with like one minute to spare and then you just hear a scream coming from him and you think it’s fallen over Instead he’s like I FORGOT THE CHOCOLATE FLAKES. Which makes everyone and their dog confused including Race because Spot hates the stuff??? Anytime he had to work with it in the technical Spot almost threw up. If it was used in the decoration of the technical Crutchie did it for him so now he’s willingly putting on chocolate??? you basically see this blur as spot puts on the chocolate shreds. See before the episodes started Race was like are you sure you won’t use chocolate??? And Spots reply was please. The only reason I would use chocolate in my bakes willingly is if I was gonna ask you to marry me. Race doesnt remember this for a while. Of course his show stopper is the best thing the judges ever tasted. He wins. And when Race sees his cake hes like???? Why chocolate?? And Spot is like dont you remember what I said before? And Race remembers just tears up and is like spot you’re not really doing this on tv… And Spot shrugs like I already have. And everyone is holding their breath because break up??? And Race sighs and rolls his eyes like you’re dumb. Of course ill marry you. And then they kiss. Jerk guy is not happy in the slightest. Spot is so happy with winning and his new fiance he passes out in Race’s arms.

Bonus: Crutchie was the best man for their wedding and he and spot spent hours and hours on the deserts.

some thoughts on james flint’s tragic ending

i let my mouth run on the silverflint/dimplemas situation to my buddies, and i just wanna toss my theorising out into the ether before 405 comes along and destroys all of it haha.

——-

essentially, silver holding back the info is twofold, and we can’t know which it is until he plays his cards - is he trying to keep flint focused on the war? is he wondering how strong flint’s attachment to him is compared to thomas? (bc he prob rightly suspects flint would drop everything if he could get thomas back, even if he’s blocking it now.) so having it in his backpocket as an emergency break, so to speak, can be useful both to get flint out of the way and to get him to relinquish the dangerous situation he is in. it can easily go either way and depends on so many factors we haven’t seen explored yet.

i’m also wary bc of the cast/writers going so hard on the silverflint in interviews, “love of his life” etc. i think flint is absolutely in love w silver rn, all the “oh i see” and dropped eyes @ silvermadi etc, it’s not even subtle anymore. so if flint is finally finding his own humanity and vulnerability again, even if it is through unselfish, unrequited love, that must mean a lot to him, and even if he gets a bittersweet, lasting reunion w thomas, he’d still be leaving silver behind, who at this point has also become integral to his very functioning. they absolutely are soulmates, kindred spirits, in many ways that thomas and james can’t be right now. at the same time, john is coaxing the human back out, which might be the very thing enabling james to reconnect with thomas, at the cost of leaving behind the one person who descended to his darkest depths and never recoiled, even joined him and supported him throughout. leaving that behind is fucking tragic in its own right. (even if i don’t believe like some ppl that thomas couldn’t possibly accept james back, i don’t think he’s nearly as blandly innocent as many ppl argue.)

plus all this saying how james had thomas, he had miranda, NOW he has silver who is a summation of all those relationships and perhaps “the one he needed the most”. gimme bittersweet thomas/james, both of whom are forever changed by their experiences and pain, for whom injust england is no longer an abstract idea, who lie awake back to back at night, comforted by having each other but knowing there’s places each has gone that neither can ever touch, and that’s ok, but it’s painful too. gimme thomas sitting on the bed and holding marcus aurelius when a few months have passed and james takes another of his occasional solitary trips to the shore where he’ll stare out at the horizon just because, because maybe there’ll be sails far-off. and thomas knows it’s not a judgment on himself and his love w james, but he knows there are things he might never be able to offer him bc that’s just how the world is.

Birthday Surprise

Word Count: 1457

You sat on the couch in the living room of your flat, grabbing for the remote as Netflix was asking if you were still watching. Yeah, you had been watching for that long. You had already finished all the seasons of your favorite show, so now you were going back through them again. It was an easy distraction from the ache of missing Conor.

Conor was currently on tour promoting his second album. It was the European leg of the world tour, and he was in Paris tonight. You missed him terribly. He tried to call and text as often as he could, but you understood that he was busy with interviews, appearances and performances.

So you distracted yourself by watching Netflix on the weekends. The weeks went by easier because you could put all of your attention to working, and stay late at the office to minimize the time you would have to be alone in the empty flat.

You finally retired to your bed and checked your phone one last time from your bed. You hadn’t heard from Conor since the night before so you sent him a quick text saying good night and that you loved him. You shut off the light and somehow managed to fall asleep with the spot next to you empty.

The next morning you woke up and went to the gym, and went shopping for some groceries. Around noon time Jack texted, asking if you had any plans for your birthday that was coming up next Saturday.

You replied that you didn’t, all your good friends were at Uni hours away from London. Jack texted back, telling you not to make plans and that he would plan something great, because after all he was the ‘Party God.’

Your week went on as usual, working mostly and texting Conor when he had time.

Friday rolled around and your parents drove up from your hometown with your younger brother and sister. You were glad to see your everyone and catch up, as your siblings filled you in about their schooling and your parents about other relatives and work. You finished off the evening with a cake that your mother had baked and coffee back at your flat.

“It sure is quiet here without Conor,” your younger brother stated. Conor and him got along very well, your brother thought anything Conor did was hilarious, as did you sister.

You gave him a sad smile at the comment and finished your piece of cake.

After your family insisted you open the presents they got you, you said your goodbyes and walked them down to the car. Your father pulled out a set of keys and the lights flashed on an white sporty convertible that was parked next to your family’s car.

“Dad, how do you have the keys to that car?” You asked.

“Because I bought it,” he replied with a smile.

“Why would you do that? You and mum already have cars?”

Your sister then interrupted, “It’s for you idiot!”

“What?” You questioned your parents.

You parents shared a look, and smiled at you, “We know that you’ve been saving for a new car so we thought this might work,” your mother explained.

Tears welled in your eyes as emotions suddenly flooded your body. Tears of sadness and happiness ran down your face as you embraced your parents. “Thank you guys so much.”

“We thought it might cheer you up a bit too,” your father said, “you shouldn’t stay locked in your flat all the time, maybe you can drive home some weekends to see us.”

You nodded your head and thanked them again. They soon got in the car and drove off.

Conor had some free time that night so you were on FaceTime with him.

“How was the show tonight?” You asked him.

“It was amazing, Y/N, the energy from the crowd is insane. They know all the words to the songs too, they sing along and I feel like I’m on top of the world,” you couldn’t help but smile as he explained everything that happened during the concert.

“How was your night? Did you parents come ‘round?” He asked.

“Yeah they did, we went out for dinner, you won’t believe it, they got me a new car too.”

“Wow, really? That’s nice, is it that one you were saving up for?”

“No, it’s some convertible, I can’t wait for you to drive me around in it all the time,” you joked. He always claimed that he was a better driver than you so you always let him drive you around.

He laughed, but his smile soon faded, “I can’t wait for that either. I miss you so much Y/N.”

The conversation shifted as you felt yourself getting teary eyed again, “I miss you too Con,” you said softly.

“Jack texted me that he’s planning some big outing for tomorrow,” Conor said, trying to change the subject.

“Yeah, apparently he’s a ‘Party God’ now,” you said putting air quotes up.

“I’m sure you’ll have fun, he is the life of the party.”

“It won’t be the same without you.”

“I know, Y/N. It’s soon now, only a few more weeks.”

It was getting late and you could see Conor’s eyes starting to shut, as the adrenaline from the concert was wearing off.

“I’ll let you go to bed Con.”

His eyes widened as if he was trying to force himself to stay awake, “just one more minute, it’s nearly your birthday babe.”

As the 60 seconds passed he cheered, then sung you a beautiful version of ‘Happy Birthday.’

“I love you so much Y/N.”

“I love you too Conor.”

And with that you said one last goodbye and exited FaceTime, missing your boyfriend more than ever as you tried to fall asleep.

You woke up to a few texts from Jack, informing you of when to be ready for the party and what the dress code was. You decided to treat yourself today, as it was your birthday. You were excited to drive the new car, and the weather was decent enough to have the top down. You went to get your nails done and your hair freshly highlighted and styled for tonight. You saw a pair of heels in a shop as you were passing by, and your dress for tonight would go perfectly with them, so you decided to splurge on them too.

You had done your makeup and slipped into a dress and heels, finally ready for Jack to arrive to pick you up. He texted that he was downstairs and you went down to meet him.

“Happy Birthday Y/N!” Jack shouted as he got out of the Uber, giving you a hug.

“Thanks Jack!” He ushered you into the Uber.

“We’re going to a restaurant first, then a nice place for drinks after, and maybe a club if you’re up for it.”

He then got out his vlogging camera and told his audience the plan as well.

The two of you soon arrived at one of your and Conor’s favorite restaurants in London, and you tried to keep a smile on your face as your thoughts were flooded with Conor.

Caspar, his girlfriend, Joe, Oli, Mikey and Josh were waiting at the table for the two of you to arrive. They all greeted you with a chorus of  “Happy Birthday’s” and you went around to hug all of them. You were glad they were all here to help you celebrate.

You all had a lovely meal and were enjoying yourselfs. Jack had convinced you to take a few birthday shots, and you were feeling better with the small amount of alcohol in you.

Suddenly, the waiters came over to your table with a large cake and sparkling candles, singing Happy Birthday. As the song came to an end, Jack repeatedly told you to make a wish as you blew out the candles. Everyone cheered as you blew them out in one breath.

“Nice Y/N! What did you wish for?” Jack questioned.

“Jack, if I tell you it won’t come true,” you reminded.

“Come on, tell the vlog,” he said, pointing his camera in your face, “the people want to know.”

You smiled, giving him a look, “I wished that Conor would come home.”

“Good thing you wished for me or this would have just been awkward,” a voice came from behind you.

You whipped around in your seat to see Conor standing behind you. You leapt out of the chair and into his arms.

“I missed you so much,” you whispered to him.

“I know, I’m here now,” he said as he pulled you in for a kiss.

Leave me feed back and message requests (any of the buttercreams!!) 

anonymous asked:

Do you think they are having Carisi yell at Barba so much so that we'll KNOW we're not going to get Barisi ? Like , they've been teasing us with Barisi , but now we're definitely not getting it .

lol I don’t think either of those things is true.

(warning: keeping it real, and referring to canon, platonic Barisi)

Season 17 Barisi

I don’t think the writers ever actively teased us with canon romantic Barisi. They just saw the potential between two “opposites”, two very different characters with one major thing in common (the law), and they let that dynamic unfold. The initial banter, the jokes, the grudging respect, the eventual support and camaraderie. On paper, it made perfect sense, and Raul and Peter brought it to life beautifully.

I mean, even Raul himself said how much he enjoyed the Barba/Carisi scenes:

About the [Barba/Carisi] relationship, Esparza admits, “I don’t think [Barba’s] a very good mentor, but I loved the way the Carisi/Barba stuff played out. I didn’t respect him at first and then little by little I began to respect him.”

Esparza and Scanavino are both happy with the evolution of this relationship, says Esparza. “They started really writing for us and I remember we had a moment were we looked at each other we were like, ‘oh they’re giving us some really good stuff!’

So, to me, Season 17′s Barisi goodness was just clever writing. Making good use of two of the show’s best characters, letting two wonderful actors have fun, and exploring the Barba/Carisi dynamic in a humorous but also poignant way which enriched the entire season.

Season 18 Barisi

As for this season’s yelling, I don’t think it has anything to do with Barisi either. It has to do with Sonny personally. He’s not just yelling at Barba. He’s been yelling at witnesses and perps, too. In a recent interview, Peter said he feels that Carisi has been going through something dark:

There’s been nothing said explicitly this season, but I feel like off screen he may be dealing with some heavy stuff.

So I think that’s what the yelling is about. I don’t know if Peter knows something we don’t, or if this is his way of rationalizing all the Angry Cop scenes he has to act out. Still, it seems that Sonny is working through some personal issues, and his relationship with Barba is an unintended casualty. As is his sense of humor. Then again, the writers haven’t really cultivated any of the interpersonal relationships in S18, or even the feeling of a “squad”, so this isn’t surprising.

Also, let’s not forget (even though the writers clearly have) that Barba set up a job interview for Sonny, with a Brooklyn ADA, as a favor (btw you know how Strauss was on the show last week? A Brooklyn ADA? But he was a defense attorney, suddenly? lol). We never did find out how that job interview went. Maybe Sonny didn’t get the job? And he’s mad, lol? And he’s taking it out on Barba, because Barba made him believe he could do it? But he can’t?

Fanwank

I’d like to think Sonny’s professional frustrations are getting the better of him, and he’s lashing out at Barba because Barba has the job Sonny wants. Problem is, Sonny needs to shit or get off the pot. You don’t get to backseat drive a criminal trial. Sonny is welcome to offer suggestions, but he’s in no position to make demands. Barba is the ADA, Sonny is the cop. Barba makes the trial-related decisions, and he doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. If Sonny is frustrated, he needs to blame himself for deciding to stay with the NYPD.

Maybe that’s exactly what he’s been doing, and that’s why he’s angry. I truly hope that’s the season-ending conflict/culmination of Sonny’s anger issues. Otherwise, it’s all pointless. Which could very well be the case, of course. The writers seem to think that yelling = tension, and when an episode is otherwise dull (so, like, every week), they add some anger. Unfortunately, Sonny seems to be the popular choice for those outbursts, which is strange, since his previous characterization was far more mellow. 

Conclusion

Let Peter and Raul have fun acting together, please :D

Eeek love you so much for uploading so many Blake's performances and vids😍. Can you upload recent and Grammy ones too? Thank you!

Pleasure! As I’ve said, me only becoming a fan last year has totally limited the amount of videos I have access to, so… Having said that, there’s PLENTY on my site to download currently. Search away, check tags, or literally just through the lists per era. https://shefani-archive.info/performances

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm new to Gorillaz and I was wondering about that post you made about Murdoc recently.. Where does it say about him sacrificing himself, saving a kid from suicide and being raped? (and the doctorate but I assume he's been to school so..)

hello and welcome!!

i actually made that post two years ago, but the message rides eternal ahaha ooooh i love murdoc so much…

you can find most of the information in rise of the ogre, gorillaz’s published book of lore - it’s been out of print for nearly ten years, but there’s still used copies floating around on ebay.

when noodle disappeared after the el mañana video, she was supposedly taken to hell. i say supposedly because, unfortunately, like most things in gorillaz, the actual reason of her disappearance and what happened is still kind of up in the air. murdoc told an interviewer that he traveled through hell to rescue her, and i’d like to believe it, but we never really know with him. but! he was also the one (again, supposedly) who schemed the whole crashing windmill island thing and hired someone to frame noodle’s death, so…

in phase one, the people behind gorillaz used to go online and chat with fans under the guise of murdoc. there was this one fan who told them that he was tired of it all and planning on ending his life, and so murdoc swooped in and chatted with him for a good few hours, i think it was, and calmed him down. jamie hewlett actually told this to an interviewer once. there’s no link to their conversation or anything.

in an old magazine interview from phase one, i believe, murdoc told them about how “he’d lost his virginity to a dinner lady when he was nine and that he’d been in a bad mood ever since.”
the rape is implied, of course, but come on…

he actually got his doctorate on his own! he was in jail for not having enough cash to pay for his brothel and decided to get his doctorate to write his own prescriptions lol

talk about never giving up! this man has such a positive outlook on his grim life, i adore it. no matter how shit it may be, he always manages to turn it around.

anonymous asked:

I have noticed Murdoc has been consistently strange this phase. He acted weird to say the least in the interview where he starts 'glitching' and 2d tries to calm him down with the 'oOo' noises and hand gestures. I was seriously creeped out. Do you think he lost it for good? Do you think he'll act that strange in the tv show? ALSO what do you think the tv show will be like? I read somewhere Jamie said the collaborators would be there so... Sesame Street gorillaz version maybe? sigh

The true explanation is that the writing is inconsistent *but* if I were to reason it out myself from how he’s been presented I’d actually say it’s the opposite. I don’t think Murdoc’s completely lost it. It seems more like somehow, during the hiatus, he’s become more self-aware but still can’t decided or make sense of which Murdoc he wants to be, and that’s why he’s so affable in interviews but at the same time acting out and throwing in these OTT stories that are at odds with his onscreen dynamic with the other band members. This is all my personal interpretation of him, but I’ve always felt like a lot of Murdoc’s public persona is put on or over-exaggerated like, he picks and chooses aspects of himself that he doesn’t feel completely terrible about and amplifies them up to ten- I don’t have time to go through all the detail here but there have been implications that he’s somewhat introverted, has cried etc. So it’s the rare person that truly knows who Murdoc is…I don’t think even Murdoc knows who he actually is and imo this causes a lot of internal chaos and confusion for him.

I think this internal chaos has been exacerbated even more this phase because there seems to be a tiny part of him that’s feeling guilty. I’m inferring this from 2D saying that he’s been drinking more and using S&M to “torture” himself rather than 2D. At the same time, you have his ridiculous onscreen behavior and stories about the band, cooking road kill etc. so it come across like he’s still trying to cling to the role he played in phase 1 + 2 because that’s what he knows and feels safe with while also grappling with what seems to be, for the first time, the experience of conscious guilt over that same role. And the result is him looking even more out of it than usual…he’s at a crossroads. And I’m not pulling the guilt angle out of nowhere either, it was heavily implied he was heading that direction during Phase 3 (they seem to have unintentionally continued it here in a weird way?) This is just one interpretation though.

I hope he’s allowed to process some of this on the show. He can still retain most of his zany personality while also finding some inner peace, imo. As for the show, ideally I would want it to follow a plot (can be season long or single episode) and stay in their world. Sesame Street Gorillaz frankly sounds awful so I hope they don’t do that.

I was going to write Namjoon a letter, but the alcohol isn’t helping. The words and feelings that are running through me are threatening to choke me. I just want people to appreciate Namjoon for the amazing leader that he is. It’s been a week already, but I’m still not over how he carried his brothers at the BBMAs. God knows how stressed he was, how nervous he felt. And through it all, he held his ground and nailed every freaking interview. He represented them well. 

When Namjoon stans say we want him to be appreciated, we don’t just mean for being their leader. We want our fellow ARMYs to see how hard he works. In their music and simply for who he is. He’s come so far. He hit a few bumps, but learned from them and has become a better person. We want ARMYs to see how much he cares for his brothers, and for us. He never forgets us. Even when some “fans” have done shit that has hurt him and brought his spirit down, he always remembers us. I don’t know. I’m rambling. I’ll delete this in the morning.

anonymous asked:

The video though doesnt include the "no" he says at the end of that answer. I just wanted to point that out, although it doesnt change much, and his answer was still so loopty loop. i cant get over how completely awkward the entire thing was

man, you’re all testing me today.. he said “i would lean towards no” after stuttering his way through an answer for a solid minute (and saying “if you really listen to the lyrics you’ll know what it’s about” before that). if the “no” is the only thing you wanna take away from that whole sequence - and the whole situation - i can’t help you.

Improv (Lin x Reader)

Prompt: None except the like twenty likes and a comment ye

Summary: The interview happens (but idk how to write so)

Warnings: Umm low self esteem

—————-

“I can do it. I can do it.” You said over and over. You could, you would, everyone at Improv had told you it’d be okay. That they’d be fine without you.
It still didn’t put your mind at ease.
———–
“You’ve been dreaming about this, almost your whole life. You have to do this. Tell you what, we’ll go with you. Right Carlos?” Jason had said the night before.

“Oh yeah, most assuredly.” Carlos said as he continued to read.

“‘Most assuredly’ what century are you from?” Jason asked as you rolled your eyes getting ready to go out on stage. It was the last night before you had to go to the audition.

You’d had the lunch a few days ago and set up a day you could come and audition. You felt something in your stomach, like a black hole sucking you in from the inside out.

“Three, two, one.” You counted down and flopped into your spin-y chair and rode all the way to you desk in the middle of the stage. It was small and so was the audience but it was home.
“It’s so good to be home.”
————————-
“That’s right.” Jason said behind you. “You can do it. You’ll get the job and you’ll be every character and you’ll become rich and famous. Isn’t hat right Carlos?”

“Yep, most defiantly.” He said and nodded. You stood in front of both of them, the door looming before you. You started to walk forward, you were almost to the stairs.

“I can’t do it.” You said and turned trying to run.

“No.” Jason said as he blocked your path. “You have to do this.”

“Carlos you can’t let him do this to me.” You said turning to the other guy.

“I can, because you have to do this.” He said and you stomped your foot in anger.

“Stop acting like a child.” Jason said and rolled his eyes.

Then the door opened and Jason turned you around. Lin stood there a smile on his face.

“You’re here! We were wondering if you got lost.” He told you and Jason pushed you forward. You stumbled forward and gave a small nervous smile.

“Nope, just clearing up some things. Uh let’s go.” You said and walked past him through the door.

———————–

You were still shaking when you got to your apartment. You’d been so nervous, you hoped you hadn’t shown any of it. You had a few things prepared and they had a few things. You had done almost all of them.

When you were done and out of sight of your interviewers you had started shaking and freaking out. Why? You weren’t sure, you chalked it up to be all the adrenaline you’d been trying to suppress coming all at once.

When you got home, and turned your phone back on, there were thirty messages. All of them from the crew at Improv. They all said sweet things wishing you the best and telling you that it would be okay. It was like you already had the part.

Jason and Carlos came over for dinner, like always. You went out to your favorite Chinese place. While you were there you got a text. You didn’t look at it because you were with friends and you found it extremely rude to text while you were out with friends.

But Jason and Carlos could see the nervous excitement that racked your body as you looked at your purse time and time again.

“Well if you won’t check it I will.” Jason said and reached across you to your purse. He grabbed your phone and then looked up. “You got the part.”

Fame (L.H.)

A/N: This is not one of my best writings. I’m disappointed with how it turned out, but it has been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’m sorry I keep writing such sad imagines, but those usually have a nice plot to them. I promise the next one will have a nicer story line. I most likely will not be writing a Just Friends Part 3 or Roommates Part 2, so please stop asking. However, once I reach 1K followers, I’ll give you all a little treat :) Also, THIS GIF IS NOT MINE.

Masterlist || Ask

Part 2

*****

That picture.
That stupid picture.
It was because of that picture that you found yourself clicking on various posts that had your heart breaking even more.
What picture?
The fucking picture of Luke in his smiley shirt - you know the one - pre-lip piercing and with fringe.
The picture made you realize how much he had changed with his new found fame.
Sure, the first year wasn’t as bad, but as the band grew, the more Luke lost himself in the fame.
Of course you were happy that the band was taking off and that he had become more comfortable and confident in his own skin, but if along the way he acted like someone he wasn’t, he’d eventually turn into that person permanently and you don’t think you can sit back and watch it unfold.
Luke was no longer the lanky, shy, teenage boy that you once knew. He had become this muscular, outgoing, nearly twenty year old man that you don’t even know.
“Hey, Luke,” you called over to him where he was sat on the opposite couch on his phone - which is really all he does anymore when he’s not playing a show, being interviewed, or not out clubbing.
“Hmm?” He hummed, not even looking up at you.
“Let’s go do something. The two of us, just like how we used to. We can go to your favorite pizza place down the road,” you suggested. You wanted to spend some time with your best friend as it has been a very long time since you had.
“Sorry, can’t. Have an interview in a few. Maybe next time,” he shot you down, still not looking up at his phone.
What a lie that was.

More pictures.
All you saw were picture upon picture of him over Twitter and Tumblr.
“Interview, my ass,” you mumbled as you scrolled through the pictures of Luke at Nice Guy with some girl.
He could’ve said he wanted to go clubbing. You would’ve joined him, but it seems that he doesn’t want anything to do with you as of lately.
After scrolling through a few more, you slammed your laptop shut in anger.
You don’t recognize the boy that was on your screen.

“Hey, Y/N!” Luke yelled at you from behind.
You turned around from where you were walking in the direction of their dressing room. “What?”
Luke caught up to you. “Geez, what’s your problem?”
You rolled your eyes and kept walking. “What do you want?”
He put his hands in his pockets and shrugged. “Thought we could go out to eat.”
You stopped in your tracks and looked at him. “Wow, you actually have time for me? Ordinary, Y/N?”
He furrowed his eyebrows. “Why say it like that? I always have time for you.”
You let out a sarcastic laugh. “Bullshit.” You turned to walk away.
Luke grabbed your arm and pulled you back. “It’s not bullshit. I make time to hang out with you.”
“Oh really? When’s the last time we hung out, Luke?”
He thought for a moment. “When we went bowling and made a bet to see who would have to be the winner’s servant for a day.”
“And when was that?” You proceeded to question him.
“Last week?” He guessed.
This time you scoffed. “More like five months ago, Lucas. Nice try.”
“So what if I haven’t made time to hang out with you? I’ve been busy with the band,” he nonchalantly stated.
“Busy with the band? You call going out clubbing and hanging with girls busy with the band? Get a grip on yourself, Luke.”
“Stop being such a complaining little bitch, Y/N. You should be thankful that I even still bother to hang out with a nobody like you.”
You sucked in a breath and took a step back away from him as tears filled your eyes.
That was the one thing Luke had promised you he wouldn’t dare to think of saying to you as he got famous more and more everyday.
Luke’s face turned into one of shock and regret. “Y/N… I-I didn’t mean-”
“Don’t worry. You won’t have to worry about hanging out with a nobody like me anymore.”
“That’s not what I meant-”
Then you said the words that broke him. “I don’t even know who you are anymore.” And with that, you turned on your heels and ran away.

You ignored his calls and texts. You ignored the pounding on your hotel door. All you know is that you wanted out and the only way to do that was to leave.
So that’s what you did.
You changed into a pair of leggings and a tank, threw on a flannel, grabbed your phone and wallet, and was out the door.
You had gotten into a taxi and gave the driver directions to the one place where you knew that you’d be able to clear your head.
You thanked and paid the driver then headed towards the building.
You greeted the receptionist, who knew you very well from the amount of times you’ve been here, and asked if your room was open.
“Yeah, go on in,” he told you and you thanked him before rushing towards your room.
You opened the door and flipped on the light switch. You walked further into your sanctuary, letting the door close behind you.
You took off your flannel and tied it around your waist then threw your hair up into a ponytail.
You walked over to the sound booth and plugged your phone into the system and the familiar tune of Justin Bieber’s song Sorry filled the empty room.
You walked over to the mirror and stared at yourself. Your eyes were red and puffy from the crying while your hair was disheveled in its ponytail.
Then you started dancing.
At first it was just a few free styling moves, but then you let the music take over as you created moves, letting out your frustration and anger.
You don’t even know how many times the song had repeated itself or how long you spent in the studio, but you got an idea when there was a knock on the door followed by Casey - the receptionist - walking in.
“Y/N, it’s closing time,” he said as he sat in front of you with his back against the mirror as he watched you continue to dance.
“Really? How long have I been in here?” You asked surprised as you came to a halt.
He shrugged. “About five hours maybe?”
Your eyes widened. “What time is it now?”
He pulled out his phone. “About a quarter till ten.” He pocketed his phone. “You’re not normally in here for this long unless you have a class. What’s up?” He patted the spot beside him.
You grabbed your phone from the sound booth and made your way over to sit down beside him. “Luke.”
“What happened this time?”
You shrugged. “He basically called me a bitch and a nobody.”
Casey furrowed his eyebrows. “That doesn’t sound like the Luke you’ve told me about before.”
You let out a sarcastic laugh. “Because it’s not. I don’t even think that the real Luke exists anymore. He got washed away in the fame.”
He put his hand on your knee. “You should find him and bring him back as that is what a good friend would do. It’s also what someone who’s in love with him would do too.”
You gave him an incredulous look. “Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Hold on there. Who said that I was in love with Luke?”
He gave you a look. “It’s obvious that you are, Y/N. The way you talk about him, the fact that you’re angry about this, the fact that you care so much about what he does… all of that just points to the obvious fact that you love him.”
You sighed as you stared straight ahead of you at the wall. “How are you able to see all of this and yet I’m invisible to everyone else?”
He shrugged. “You’re in here a lot you know. It’s kind of obvious.”
“Yeah, to you.”
He sighed and stood up. “Come on,” he held his hand out for you to take.
“Where are we going?” I asked him as I took his hand and he pulled me up.
“We are getting some ice cream because that is always a great solution to every problem.”
You laughed. “I guess I could go for some ice cream.”
So, true to his word, the two of you went and got some ice cream. You stayed out for about an hour just talking and enjoying your ice cream until you had to go back.
“I guess I should head on back,” you tell him as you stood up to throw your cup away.
He followed you. “I can bring you back to your hotel if you want so that you don’t have to call a taxi.”
You smiled at him. “That’d be great, thanks.”
He nodded and the two of you walked over to his car.
He pulled into the parking lot of the hotel and turned the car off.
“You don’t have to walk me in, Casey. I can go in by myself.”
He shook his head as he got out of the car. “That’d be very douchey of me.”
You laughed as you got out as well. “Suit yourself.”
The two of you headed inside and into the elevator towards your floor.
“So, what are you gonna do now? You can’t just keep on ignoring him.”
“I’ll do it until I can’t anymore.”
He shook his head and the elevator doors opened.
The two of you stepped out and headed towards your hotel room. You opened the door and walked in to see all of the band inside.
“Uh, why are you all in here? This is my room in case you forgot,” you tell them as you put your phone and wallet on top of the dresser.
“What are we doing here? Where have you been? You’ve been gone for five hours and didn’t tell any of us where you were going. You didn’t even answer our calls and texts. Then you come back at a quarter past eleven with some random guy?” Luke scolds you as he got up from the bed and stalked over to where you stood.
You crossed your arms. “If you knew that I wasn’t answering your calls or text, did it ever occur to you that I was ignoring you? That I left for a reason?” You tell him.
He opened his mouth to say something then closed it again.
“Can you all just leave? I’m tired and I just want to sleep,” you sighed and opened the hotel door showing them that you meant it.
The rest of the lads got up, muttering a quick goodnight, before leaving with Casey following suit leaving Luke standing where he was and you still by the opened door.
“I mean it, Lucas. Leave,” you tell him and gesture with your head to the hallway.
“No,” he said stubbornly.
“Why must you be so damn difficult?”
“Oh, I’m being difficult? You’re the one that fucking won’t talk to me!”
“Because you’re being such a dick!” You yell at him and slam the door shut then stalked over to him.
“Oh, I’m a dick? How am I being a dick? I’m not the one blatantly avoiding another person who is only trying to apologize!”
“I don’t want an apology from you if it won’t be sincere and you’ll only do it again!”
“It was an accident! I didn’t mean to say it! It was a one time thing!”
“But you promised you would never say those words to me, Luke.“
He sighed as he rubbed a hand over his face. “It was an accident. I was just annoyed and it slipped out.”
“You wouldn’t say it if you never meant it.”
“Y/N…”
“I don’t even know you anymore, Luke.”
“I’m still me,” he told you.
You shook your head. “Fame has changed you, Luke.” You looked up at him with watery eyes. “And I really wish it hadn’t.”
His own eyes started to water as well. “Hey, the old Luke is still here. He just grew up.”
“You can still grow up and still be the same person you once were. You’re acting like someone you’re not and you’re turning into that person. Well, news flash, Luke. I’m not one to be swooned by all the glamour and fame. If you even knew me like you once did, you know I prefer the small things over anything extravagant. You know I’d prefer movie marathons in my pajamas than going out and clubbing.”
“What do you want me to do?” He pleaded.
You walked back and opened the door. “I want you to wake up and snap yourself out of this façade because until the Luke that I know comes back, I don’t want anything to do with you.”
He stared at you in disbelief. “You can’t just shut me out of your life, Y/N! Have all the years of being best friends meant nothing to you?”
You glared at him through your tears. “That! That right there is exactly what I’m talking about, Luke! You know just how much this friendship means to me! How dare you say I think of it any less!” You scoffed. “You need to get a grip on life.”
He didn’t move. “Y/N.”
“I swear on all that is good that if you don’t leave right now, Luke, I will scream bloody murder and throw shit at you until you do,” you huffed, all of your patience gone.
He stared at you in shock.
“You have five seconds,” you tell him as you started counting down. You normally would’ve laughed at your reference to their band name, but you were done with his shit. 
He shook his head and made his way past you and out the door.
You slammed the door and pressed you back against it as you slid down to the floor. Your strong façade dropping as your tears flowed freely.
You just lost your best friend.

Anon prompt! Perhaps an OT3 fic where Arthur sacrifices himself for Lewis and Vivi? Like- Sacrificing his own wellbeing, physically, possibly even life? But everything manages to be ok in the end? (Can this be post-cave? Like- with ghosty lewis?)

((Ask and ye shall receive))


They hadn’t gone into a cave since the incident.

Arthur paled and began to shake when even passing by one, and Vivi didn’t dare ask Lewis how he felt about it. She didn’t have much of a mental filter, but never let it be said that she was stupid; a death so violent was not something one could just shake off. There was no way Lewis had walked away from that without some sort of fear, and he and Arthur had made so much progress since that first night in the mansion…Vivi didn’t want to risk it by asking tactless questions with obvious answers.

But they were going to a cave tonight, and she was worried.

I can't imagine what Dylan went through last year & I understand the privacy, but I do think if he did an interview and in his own words explained what happened it would be for the best bc that would be the final word and stop a lot of the speculation & rumors. Of course, he might not feel up to it, or there might still be legal stuff in work. But I feel like it could be cathartic to talk through it maybe and then show how he's triumphed over it all yk? It could be so inspiring for others.

I’m going to say no.  For a few reasons. 

Ultimately I understand what you mean and it’s what I wanted and agreed with for a while.  I just want him to sit down in his own words and tell us what happened.  The issues arise over a couple of things:

Legalities: People want someone to blame and the blame falls so closely to people that Dylan has worked with for years.  THis was an accident, but we want a villain so it’s hard to hear one side of the story, but have another that we can’t hear because it’s still wrapped up in some sort of red tape.  

Experience:  Some experiences you can get through and be an inspiration to others and some just change you.  A lot of people know about the crazy deaths in my family and after the first few I could have been the poster child for inspiration through loss.  Then I lost my mom and my nephew and checked out for a year. 

Everyone’s recovery is dfference and we have no idea where he’s at.  The accident changed him and if anything he’s definitely withdrawn into himself and makes his privacy a priority.  

I don’t think we’ll hear about the accident honestly for a few years, and I’m okay with that.  I’d like to see him get a little more settled in the industry so it doesn’t become a thing that defines him.

Thoughts on Cassidy's story arc in the comics? He's my fav character on the show and after I read the comics I was so upset I think I literally cycled through all 5 stages of grief lol. Do you think they're going to take his character in the same direction in the show as in the comics? Part of me hopes not but it would also make for more interesting character development. Thanks for reading love the blog 😘💉⛪️🚬

Hey pal! Boi, do I have a lotta thoughts on that issue.

(SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T READ THE COMICS)

Bottom line is, based on interviews with Joe Gilgun and some of the creative team, I’m pretty sure Cassidy is still gonna be the bad guy at the end of the show. As you may have noticed in the the finale of Season 1, there’s a reference to Cassidy attacking his ex-girlfriend on his criminal record, which alludes to the big reveal of his violent past, and the resulting conflict with Jesse and Tulip. So I’m pretty sure that is, indeed, what’s coming.

My main hope is that they handle it better in the show than the comics did, cause in the comics it sorta comes out of left field and the way Tulip is treated as a character during that arc is pretty repulsive and sexist in my opinion.

Now, so far the show has been a lot more slow and subtle than the comics, which I think will be helpful for building up to establishing Cassidy’s character. Also, they’ve made Tulip into much more of a well rounded, three dimensional character, which is really nice. I just hope that when they get to that point in the story, they do it in such a way where they’re able to tell that story about the nature of trauma, evil, abuse, etc. without using Tulip as a prop and throwing her around to fuel Cassidy and Jesse’s conflict the way the original comics did.

Now, as you can probably tell from the blog, I love Cassidy as a character. I think he’s brilliantly written, but I think that the fact that he is a violent person who has abused people is a really big part of who he is, because it’s a really important part of the statement that Preacher is making as a story. Cassidy is sort of a lot of people’s “edgy male power fantasy” in a certain way, but as Joe Gilgun said in an interview, very aptly: he doesn’t want people to find Cassidy sexy. He wants them to understand that a vampire is kinda, by nature, a selfish and bad person.

Remember that, on a fundamental level, Preacher is about what people do when they’re suddenly handed an enormous amount of power, how they handle it, and how it changes them. So I think that for the arc to work, we need to see Jesse struggle with learning to be a hero… and by the same token, we need to see the way in which Cassidy struggles with his propensity toward being the villain.

Though, as we saw in the comic, there’s a way in which he sorta redeems himself eventually, or at least tries to. So that could happen too. Who knows.

Personally, I’m excited to see where the writers go with this.

But by the same token, this is why I don’t reblog any “shipping” posts on this blog. Cassidy’s a great character… but he’s not a great person. At all. So I kinda try to warn folks not to ship people with him. You don’t want a character who you like to be a relationship with a character like Cassidy. That’s not gonna end well.
