They joy of encountering another post with the “either ace or relationship” because both APPARENTLY DOESN’T WORK :DD

Fucking hell, this annoys the shit out of me and I actually belong to those who personally don’t care about a romantic relationship. I don’t want that for myself but it’s so incredibly frustrating to always read people assume that being ace and having a relationship is a no go together. Just–urgh.


that 뱁새 (baebsae) are birds called crow tits, which are any of various small birds of paradoxornis or related genera that resemble tits found especially in korea. its these little guys right here ^^

cute, aren’t they? ;DD

now, there’s a korean proverb that goes like this, “뱁새가 황새 걸음을 걸으면 가랑이 가 찢어진다” which translates to, if a crow-tit walks like a stork, it will break its legs, meaning if you overdo something or try to imitate someone better than you to make yourself look more/better than you are, you will just bring more hardship upon yourself.

so when rapmon and suga starts the song with

they call me baebsae
we were cursed at, this generation
quickly, chase ’em
thanks to the stork, my legs spread
so call me baebsae
we were cursed at, this generation
quickly, chase ’em
my teachers who were born with a gold spoon and chopsticks

they mean

the society calls us a try hard
we had a hell of a hard time, our generation
so quickly, chase ‘em away
cos thanks to the storks’ societal boundaries, our legs are bruised
so call us a try hard
we had a hell of a hard time, our generation
quickly, chase ’em away
our teachers who were born with it all

because in korean society, crow tits refer to normal people/lower class or the younger generation while storks refer to the ‘better’ higher class people, or supposedly, the older generation.

and i like how j-hope voices his concern by pressing on this issue further and mention the stuff normal people face everyday like

if you go to a part-time job, it’s “passion pay”
if you go to school, it’s the teachers
the superiors who use violence/abuse their authorities
and the media that go on about every day about “the forsaken generation”

i thought people should know that “열정페이” or “passion pay” is a term koreans refer to the extremely low wage that companies pay to young people where these workers get paid much less than they should be getting (often less than minimum wage) for a job in hopes that the workers’ “passion” will somehow compensate for the lack of a livable wage. its terrible. 

as for “포 세대” or “the forsaken generation”, when IMF crisis happened in the late 90s, a lot of countries suffer from economical depression, including south korea. and because of the social pressures and economical problems such as rocketing prices, tuition, housing prices, and so on, a lot of people in this generation are said to easily give up on few things central to what is normally considered a complete life, like, love, marriage, and raising children. and it’s precisely because of this term used in the song is why i think ‘stork’ is also referred to the older generation, in addition to the higher class people ^^

i also thought it was brilliant how suga just single handedly pointed out why the societal boundaries set by the storks are ridiculous and not fair because

i have the legs of a crow tit, you have the legs of a stork
they say, my legs are worth a million dollars
but mine are short, so how can we play/do the same events?
they say, if it’s the same meadow, it’s okay
Never Never Never

he is saying that his generation are at a disadvantage compared to the storks because crow tits and storks are obviously DIFFERENT species so they are playing in a different meadow, its poles apart, which is NEVER OKAY

and rapmon made it clear when he said he wanted to

change the rules, change change.
the rules that the storks want to, want to maintain.
but we can’t do that now, can we? BANG BANG.
(cos) this isn’t normal.
(cos) this isn’t normal.

to which v and jin replied in the storks pov

ah, stop singing on about effort, effort
ah, it makes me cringe (viscerally disgusted).
ah, effort effort, ah, effort effort (whatever)
ah, you don’t really stand a chance~

that had all of them yelled out

as expected of the storks!

at the last line, because of f course you higher class/older generation would say such things, do you even care..

fyi they use 싹수가 노랗다 in the song that literally means “your chances are yellow”, a common saying in korea to indicate that there is no hope at all because metaphorically speaking, there is a chance for a tree to grow tall if it stems from a green shoot but if you grow from a yellow shoot, there is almost no chance. its sort of a harsh thing to say to someone tbh

which is why when jimin and jungkooks’ part came i died because first of all, jimin and jungkookss voice, second of all jimin and junskooks voice, and third of all jimin and jungkooks voice they’re actually teasing the storks like

as expected of storks, they don’t disappoint
as expected of storks, they earn their name
as expected of storks, they eat/take it all
as expected of storks, of the storks~~~~

and that part where jungkook’s voice goes off

saying that it’s my fault, you’re joking, right?
saying that it’s fair, oh are you crazy
saying that this is justice
you must be kiddin’ me
you must be kiddin’ me
you you must be kiddin’ me

he is basically saying that it is outrightly insane for the society to blame them for their supposedly failures when they didn’t have a chance in the first place!

which is why the ending chorus gets me every time because instead of putting down the storks, they end up humbly BUT resonantly stating that, okay,

we are crow tits, we don’t disappoint
we are crow tits, we’ve earned our name
we are crow tits, let’s live together
we are crow tits, crow tits

like, despite everything though, isn’t it best to just live equally and get along well together? 

i guess what bangtan is trying to say is that even if they were born without gold spoon and chopsticks, they will still work hard to overcome societal boundaries, like, despite coming from a relatively small company, despite being aware of the rigid social expectations of being an idol as well as having to face media favoritism on big companies, knowing they will get hurt a lot, they will still try hard to achieve success, and ‘chase’ away the storks in the entertainment industry.

also i think its important to know that while crow tits are active, noisy, and social birds, they are also highly adaptable, and are amongst the most intelligent of all birds after parrots and the corvids (crows and jays) <33

on a rather irrelevant note,  

how can they be dorkS 

and gorgeous at the same time??


Speculation: Will Felicity be arrested at the end of the season 5 just as things are looking good for Olicity?

After watching Arrow’s latest episode and all the awesome Ghost Fox Goddess Goodness & Felicity going back to her hacking roots 

And then seeing this posted on Twitter today

It got me thinking & reminded me of the end of Smallville Season 7 and what happened to Chloe, Watchtower. 

Chloe is arrested by the Department of Domestic Security (DDS) and it happens right as Jimmy is proposing to her. (personally I did not mind that interruption because I loved her with Oliver Queen) But it comes right at a moment where everything seems to be perfect.  

We come to find out, at the beginning of Season 8, that it wasn’t the DDS that arrested her but it was actually LutherCorp, the bad guys.

With what I know right now, and that isn’t much, I can see this as a possible direction, hence my speculation that as it gets closer to the end of the season, Oliver finds out what’s been going on and knows all that Felicity has been doing. They hash it out. They work through it. 

So when they get to the last episode of the season, things are looking pretty good. They have dealt with the big bad and they are in the middle of a perfect and classic “Olicity” moment.  They are vulnerable and intimate. Then all of a sudden…BOOM!  She is arrested.  We get a moment something like this. 

Then we find out in Season 6 that Oliver & Diggle have been looking for Felicity this whole time.  They don’t know who has her. Dun Dun Dun Duuuun.

But this is only speculation and since it’s me doing it, it will most likely not happen & not sure if I even make sense. lol Enough of my rambling.  Time to get some work done.  


Just going to add this to this spec. @meandmynerd reminded me that Felicity Smoak was arrested in the comics, Green Arrow #39. I have this comic and I forgot about this. It would be great to see this play out on Arrow. 


everyone, please enjoy some hope lovee <33


Stimmiest handwarmers! Reboil them and they turn back into liquid! Then “pop” the disc again and they turn into solids and heat. Over and over! Yay!
Don’t interact from dd/lg cg/l k1nk.

I COULDN’T HELP IT! :’DD Since I had the day off today and it’s Christmas, I’ve decided to lineart and colour them, actually I didn’t do that since 2012 sooooo it took me a while to do it as I did back then, Thanks godness I still had my old colour pallete for them

As I’ve said in my previous post, Once Arnold knows Helga’s secret, he’s not falling for his threats anymore, he’s like “Yeah yeah Helga, keep yelling, I know what your actual feelings are” I can’t wait for that freaking jungle movie hahaha

And I haven’t forgotten about the rest of my meme requests! I’ll be drawing them tomorrow :D

chained-rabbit  asked:

I just read the Inferno AU and loved it!!! Especially how you related every charachter and their roles with what we have seen in the show. Can't wait for updates!!! :DD

Thank you so much!! ;A; I am trying to cram in as many references as possible. It’s a very different setting, but still YOI in its own way! ^ ^; Here’s another one people may or may not have caught: The reason why they call their blood “Life,” and the reason why Yuuri has endless amounts of it that he shares with everyone is entirely from:

Me at this scene: OH, so like, if we take this super literally, and L = life, and for vampires life = blood, that totes means that Yuuri’s a universal donor amirite.

YOI writers: ….how the fuck did you get that out of this.

(also bad translation crunchy, he just calls it “L” not “L words” wow)

Thanks for liking my dumb AU, and I really hope you’ll look forward to what’s coming! :D

Headcanon that Phoenix has a tendency to massage people when they’re upset. Like, he just puts his hands on some part of their body & starts massaging there, all throughout the conversation. He’s been doing this since childhood & he’s c o m p l e t e l y unaware of it. He even does it to his clients, so long as he can actually stand them.

Maya figures it out pretty quickly. Sometimes she acts upset just so she can get a free shoulder massage from Phoenix. Same with Trucy, except she gets head massages because Phoenix likes the feel of her hair. The first time it happened to Apollo, he flipPED OUT internally because how??? is he supposed to handle this????? But he didn’t say anything to Phoenix b/c Phoenix gives a really good wrist massage like holy bracelet this man has the hands of a god.

Also, Edgeworth has known all along. As soon as he & Phoenix were back on friendly terms with each other, the second Phoenix saw Edgeworth upset over even the slightest thing, he just kinda. grabbed Edgeworth’s hand & started massaging his palm & internally Edgeworth was thinking, “finally, that hand has been cramping up lately.” Edgeworth would charter a private jet for a Phoenix Wright hand massage.
