that was when i thought they made songs better

Twenty-five years ago Tuesday, a career-defining single was born — and with it, endless sitcom jokes and rap homages. It was referenced in Sing, the 2016 animated children’s movie, and in Shrek years before that. But when it debuted in 1992, there were those who took it to heart as an anthem of body positivity.

Baby Got Back” begins kind of a heartbreaking scene: a white woman talking to her friend Becky, straight up mocking a black woman. The man behind the song, Anthony Ray — better known as Sir Mix-a-Lot — says he didn’t make that up.

“It was like a blown-out, glorified version of what was actually being said at that time,” he says. “Basically, pop culture was waif-thin, heroin addict, big hair, fake boobs — you know, that was what they thought beautiful was. And because of the way it was discussed publicly, it made women who had naturally curvy bodies … run around with sweaters wrapped around their waist.”

“When I heard it, I just felt so — it was so affirming,” says Erin Aubry Kaplan. In the mid-‘90s, Kaplan was staff writer at LA Weekly. She and wrote a big feature article about the paradoxical way black women’s butts were seen — using “Baby Got Back” as an epigraph.

[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170418 JINWOO & SEUNGYOON for CECI May Issue

Another long hiatus that lasted 1 year and 2 months, reorganization from 5 members to 4. Upon its release, WINNER’s third mini album, “FATE NUMBER FOR” wiped out all doubt that surrounded them and recorded first place on the iTunes Charts in 21 different countries. Even now, two weeks since the release, “REALLY REALLY” refuses to drop from the top of the digital charts. We met with the two people who are at the center of all this talk, Kang Seungyoon and Kim Jinwoo of WINNER. We will suppress the urge to share all the details about how they were deeply natural with each other and how the melodies they hummed together matched so well. That is because it is unnecessary to talk about how WINNER is strong like they always have been and the fact that they still have much to show us.

I saw you two at a restaurant the other day. It was the day after the release of your album and the music videos for “FOOL” and “REALLY REALLY”.

JINWOO

Really?

SEUNGYOON

Oh, that was the day we went to eat nasigoreng and pasta!

It was fascinating. Your songs swept the charts and your music videos recorded ten million views in a day but you guys were eating lunch as if it was just another ordinary day. How did you feel?

JINWOO

The amount of attention and love we received for our debut album was unusual for a rookie group. We experienced many different things after that and after a long hiatus, we’re receiving so much love with our comeback so the greatest feeling we have right now is gratefulness.

SEUNGYOON

Oh, could you wait a second? Song Mino just video-called me saying that he wants to be interviewed with us. Hello? Hello? Oh, I can’t hear him well so I’ll hang up.

(Laughing) Is it really Mino?

SEUNGYOON

I just hung up (laughing) Like Jinwoo-hyung said, we received a lot of love with “Empty”, which was in our first album. Personally, I think I tried not to have much expectations for this album (FATENUMBERFOR). I put in the effort not to get excited even when our song got first place on the charts because it might drop soon after.

But even after 2 weeks have passed, it is still at the top of the charts. Is that satisfying?

JINWOO

It is very satisfying.

SEUNGYOON

I am a little satisfied? We were in a situation where we had to prove to people that it was possible for us to overcome the unfortunate things that happened to us and I think that’s been proven to some extent. Also, how it does on charts isn’t very important to me. I’m satisfied that our fans are liking our music.

You talked about which song you liked better in your V LIVE, right? I like “REALLY REALLY” a little more than “FOOL”.

JINWOO

Seungyoon made that.

Seungyoon took part in writing lyrics and composing the songs, right? And Jinwoo shouldered more weight as a vocalist. How did you feel when you listened to the songs for the first time?

JINWOO

Seungyoon usually sings the guide. He knows the color of our group and the vocal tones of the members so he makes songs that suit those things. Seungyoon took a large part in bringing a song that matches my voice well. I practiced and thought about how I should sing it but it feels like I didn’t need to prepare something more than my usual singing voice.

(Laughs) Aren’t you being too thankful to Seungyoon?

SEUNGYOON

I think the reason why “REALLY REALLY” is doing well is because all the members shine in it. For a group to get known by many people and to receive love, it is important for one member to really pull in the attention but the whole group getting shown is also important. I felt that this song could spotlight Jinwoo-hyung so I purposely put a lot of emphasis on Jinwoo-hyung’s parts. When someone thinks, “This person’s voice is pretty good,” then they can comfortably listen to the song while enjoying that vocalist.

Thanks to the start of the song, Jinwoo has also been called the “Where Are You Man” so it seems like what Seungyoon wanted is coming true.

SEUNGYOON

I’m personally very happy because Jinwoo-hyung’s voice tone and singing method and his other styles balance the song.

“REALLY REALLY” is a feel-good love song because it is really honest. Have you ever taken the step forward to honestly confess your feelings like the song?

JINWOO

I did have a time when I was innocent.

Do you think honestly confessing to someone would be difficult now?

JINWOO

No, I think I’ll always be like that…

SEUNGYOON

I didn’t write my experiences into the song. I just wanted to write the feelings I felt when I was very young. In a vague context. If you look at the lyrics, it doesn’t sound like a love story between adults. It has the vibes of a middle school student in a shoujou manga saying, “Where are you? I came because I missed you so come outside.” I purposely did not include the words, “I love you” in the lyrics. It’s not about loving someone, it’s about liking them.

Because you didn’t use strong words, it became a more lighthearted and innocent love song.

SEUNGYOON

It is also my style. I’m straightforward on a daily basis but when I’m confessing my feelings to someone, instead of saying, “I love you”, I say, “I like you” like a tsundere.

So it’s something like, “I love… I love… No, I like you”. On the other hand, “FOOL” is a breakup song. Excluding dating, what is the most regretful thing you have done?

SEUNGYOON

Hmm. You can say that we were at fault for our long hiatus after releasing our second album, “EXIT:E”. That is regretful to me. When I think about our fans who waited for such a long time, I become more regretful about that. I feel like I should’ve worked harder to do something. When I think about it now, I might’ve been blinded by the overwhelming response we got with our first album.

JINWOO

I regret small things. For example, if I had worked harder and studied a foreign language or learned how to play an instrument when we debuted, I would be really good at it now. I regret how I started learning how to play the drums but that has fizzled out now.

You learned the drums? Why?

JINWOO

There were no special reasons at first. But while I was learning it, I relieved stressed with it and my sense of rhythm improved too.

Talking about instruments reminds me about Seungyoon’s guitar. You were always with your guitar when you were on “Superstar K2”. What about now?

SEUNGYOON

I always have my guitars in my room but it’s been awhile since I properly played them. There is a preconceived notion that playing the guitar means that the person does rock or acoustic music. Because of that, I felt that WINNER’s music was getting discolored by me. It’s possible for people to think, “Kang Seungyoon probably does this kind of music. He plays the guitar so he probably can’t do that kind of music.” I wanted to avoid those kinds of obstacles when I’m promoting as WINNER. It is not like I didn’t practice at all but in the past year, I haven’t purposely used my guitar.

There are many people who look forward to your solo activities. Is the music you are working on right now going to influence solo activities?

SEUNGYOON

I think there will be some influence to an extent. Acoustic and rock music will not be completely gone. That type of music is one of the fields I can do. However, once WINNER solidifies as a group more, if I receive the opportunity for a solo album, I have an indefinite wish to title it, “Everything You Want” and include hip-hop, jazz, ballad, rock, and dance songs. I want to make an album that contains all kinds of music so that I can enjoy it, as the person making it, and so that people who listen to my album can enjoy it too.

Both of you are members who act. Jinwoo, do you have plans for any solo or acting activities in the future?

JINWOO

Hmm. Firstly, I’m still scared about challenging myself in releasing a solo song. I lack the certainty in knowing what song or style that will suit me best. I do think about continuing my acting. Since I started it, I want to properly work hard in it.

You made an unprecedented decision to perform in the Korea National Contemporary Dance Production of “The Little Prince” last December.

JINWOO

I really wanted to challenge myself in a new experience. When I was spending my days working out, taking lessons, practicing, and wanting to do something other than those things, I received a very good offer. I thought to myself that I needed to work really hard for it. The Seoul Arts Center stage is not a stage where even modern dancers perform on often. I also received a lot of stress because I was worried that I would be told “he’s like an idol”.

You two are part of a company that is known to make the most “hip” content in Korea. There are sub-labels of YG that produce subculture content too. Is there something you find interesting in the mainstream right now?

SEUNGYOON

DPR LIVE. I think he’s cool because he makes his own music, performs alone, produces videos alone, and just makes everything by himself. I also get inspired by what he makes.

JINWOO

I like DPR LIVE too and contemporary dance is fun too. It’s very liberating. I’m not saying this because I was in “The Little Prince”… (Laughing)

There are many WINNER songs that deal with loneliness and empty feelings. It is a universal emotion but are there times when you are more lonely because you are celebrities?

JINWOO & SEUNGYOON

Yes, very often.

JINWOO

It can’t be helped because there are always limitations on what people do every day and where people can go.

SEUNGYOON

I think celebrities are a little different from people who are recognized by others. We are aware that we are people who are recognized by other people, not celebrities. It’s not just about not keeping ourselves from drinking excessively or having harmless hobbies, we can’t easily do anything. In this context, we ended up growing apart from [non-celebrity] friends and the people who we can meet gradually become limited. It’s not like Jinwoo-hyung and I don’t contact our childhood friends at all but because we can’t meet each other comfortably like in the past, it feels like our surroundings are being compressed.

JINWOO

Once that happens, you naturally end up being alone most of the time. Even if I meet someone, it’s usually my members.

On top of that, both of your hometowns are far from Seoul. Jinwoo is from Imjado Island in Sinan and Seungyoon is from Busan. Do you guys like Seoul?

SEUNGYOON

We really love Seoul! There’s so many things to do here.

(Laughs) That’s a relief.

SEUNGYOON

There are many things to do but there’s not many things we can do. But I like shopping and I can do that to my heart’s content. Most of the friends I’ve met while working are in Seoul anyways so I’ve become comfortable with this city. It’s like my home.

JINWOO

There are really not many people on Imjado Island. I like Seoul because there are so many people. But I don’t like how there are many cars too.

You’ve been to many cities [in and out of Korea]. Is there a city you want to live in?

SEUNGYOON

We went to LA recently. Seunghoon-hyung says he wants to live in LA because the weather is nice and it’s relaxing. But if I were to choose between LA and New York, I would live in New York. For now, I like being in a busy place. I feel like if I live in a relaxing place, I would get depression. I think that’s because I don’t have a peace of mind yet.

JINWOO

I want to live in Sokcho. Unlike my hometown which is in the west coast of Korea, the east coast of Korea has really blue seas. When I saw it for the first time, I was really surprised. I thought I was overseas! I want to live in Korea while looking at a clean ocean. I don’t really like busy cities.

Your choice makes sense.

SEUNGYOON

But I still like Seoul best. New York is nice but Seoul is better.

JINWOO

That’s right. I like being in Korea the best.

I’m going to ask a heartwarming question. What are you to each other?

SEUNGYOON

You go first because you’re the hyung.

JINWOO

Hmm… I’ve been with Seungyoon for a long time. I’ve received a lot from Seungyoon but I’ve never directly thanked him before.

Then can you two say thank you to each other while looking into each other’s eyes?

SEUNGYOON

(Laughing)

JINWOO

Thank you, Seungyoon, really! I want to tell my other members thank you too. Hmm. I’m really thankful for them.

SEUNGYOON

I’m also thankful. I get lonely easily and even though we’ll probably live separately in a few years, I feel safe that my family lives with me. Jinwoo-hyung is more special to me because we’ve been together for the longest time.

JINWOO

When I look at Seungyoon, I feel really proud.

SEUNGYOON

Hyung raised me like a parent. When I joined YG, he took care of me a lot.

When Seungyoon joined YG as a trainee, he was already pretty famous but Jinwoo didn’t feel burdened by him?

JINWOO

I thought he would act like he’s all that but he wasn’t like that at all. Almost to the point where I found it fascinating.

SEUNGYOON

I really started from the bottom~

You two are more heartwarming than I expected. It’s a beautiful sight

JINWOO & SEUNGYOON

Thank you!

Scans by @goduandme5     

Why, upon rewatch, I realized that XCIX is a lot better than people give it credit for, at least in my opinion.

So, I decided to rewatch the new episode so I could formulate my thoughts further than “ok that happened.”

I still had the same problems with it that I had when I watched it for the first time.

But then the ending happened, and Dean Martin started playing, and I realized…

The forced romance.

The unsubtle double entendres.

The fanfictioniness of it all.

It was all on purpose, and the song made it clear for me.

Genndy and the crew knew this making the episode, so they decided to make it as over-the-top and unsubtle as possible.

So when I realized that, and the song started playing after that abrupt cut, I laughed long and hard.

This episode was hilarious.

And that deserves some praise.

I hope this makes sense.

Also, considering we have two episodes left, it makes sense to have an episode as lighthearted as this.
Do You Think About Me?

Anon: “Nico as a famous youtuber and will as his biggest fan? uwu”

Will is not obsessed with Nico di Angelo.

He is just very very committed. Okay, so maybe when Nico posts his daily vlogs, he drops everything just to watch Nico go through his day. So what, if everytime Nico posts a cover of a song, Will almosts faints. 

No, Will was not obsessed. 

He was in love. 

He’s in love with someone he’s never met, but it feels like they’ve known each other for years. He’s in love with someone who doesn’t even know he exists. 

It’s quite pathetic, but sometimes you can’t help who you fall in love with.

cooking

*Noise of FaceTime ringing*

You click accept and see Shawn standing in his kitchen. You place your phone against the toaster, standing in your kitchen too. Shawn was back home from tour and you had been at home for a month now. Whilst Shawn was away, you had sent him a photo of a meal you had made yourself. He made you promise to teach him how to make it once he was home. 
“You’re gonna need to turn that music down Shawn,” you shouted so he could hear you, as if he was in the room with you. His head snapped in the direction of his phone. He lowered the music and smiled, “Hey baby.” You had the usual ‘how are you’ exchanges before he clapped his hands and said, “Let’s do this!”

“You know this is really easy right, and I don’t need to be doing this with you?” you laughed as you stepped away from the phone and made sure you had every set on the counter. “I know, but I thought it would be a cute little thing to do” Shawn confessed. “And we could see who is the better chef” he added with a smirk. “I knew it,” you sighed shaking your head. 
“Do you have everything?” You asked, knowing exactly what Shawn was like when it came to remembering things. He nodded eagerly as he changed the song. “You got the chicken?” You asked, with which he replied with a nod and smile. “The bacon?” He nodded again, “Darling I bring home the bacon, remember?” You rolled your eyes, “It wasn’t funny the first time Shawn.” He shrugged his shoulders and backed away from the phone. 
“I set the oven to 350 F degrees right?” Shawn asked, as he stood over the oven. “Yep,” you replied as you did the same. “Is it cold over there?” You asked as you reached up for the cupboard above to grab some foil. “Yeah, it’s snowing outside” Shawn said. “Really?” You said excitedly, looking at the phone. Shawn wandered over to the phone and leaned over, “(Y/N) you shouldn’t be excited about the snow. You should be excited about how great I look” he said as he brushed his hand through his hair. “Just look at my hair,” he said sarcastically, knowing that he hated it when it was too long. “Wash your hands before you continue,” you said with a cheeky smile. 

You instructed Shawn throughout the cooking process, waiting for him when he panicked that he was behind yelling, “Wait wait.”
“Ok, is your bacon thick?” You asked, as you opened your packet of bacon. Shawn remained silent so you glanced over at the screen to see him close to the camera, with a smile on his face as he repeatedly raised his eyebrows. “Grow up,” you sighed, rolling your eyes. Shawn pushed himself off the counter, “Fine, it’s thin.” You let a little chuckle escape your mouth, “Sorry.”
You wrapped pieces of bacon round pieces of chicken, hearing Shawn panic over how the bacon would stay wrapped. “You don’t need toothpicks, it will stick. Trust me,” you said loudly. 
“Ok, then you grab the bowl of brown sugar and roll the wrapped chicken around until it’s evenly coated” you said, doing just that. 
“Now I’m gonna dress myself for two, once for me; and once for someone new” you heard Shawn sing at the top of his lungs. “Concentrate Shawn,” you snapped. Shawn stopped just as he was about to sing even louder, and wandered over closely to his phone. “I’m sorry, kiss?” he asked in a sweet voice. You frowned at the phone before giving in, and puffing your lips out like he was. 

Both of you placed your wrapped chicken on the baking tray and placed them inside the ovens, and waited for 45 minutes. “You bored of being back home yet?” you asked, as you both sat on your kitchen floors opposite the ovens. Shawn nodded, “I miss performing so much. I gathered some of Aaliyahs’ old toys and set them out and performed to them.” You gave Shawn a weird look, “Did you really?” Shawn burst out laughing, shaking his head. “Of course not, I used my own toys.” You shook your head, but smiled because you had missed laughing with Shawn. “But I miss you,” he said softly. You smiled, “I’ve missed you too.” Throughout the waiting time, you’d smile whenever you caught Shawn looking past the camera at the oven, keeping a close eye on the food. Shawn would sing snippets of his songs, asking you which way you preferred when he changed the notes of words slightly. 

Finally it was time to reveal the truth, and find out who was the best cook. “Mine look like little dog shits,” Shawn laughed, flipping the camera to reveal his burnt chicken bites. “Sprinkle the parsley,” you said as you admired your perfect cooking. “Now it looks like little dog shits covered in grass,” Shawn said. You glanced at the screen and did a double take, “I said sprinkle not pour!” “Oh well,” Shawn sighed, flipping the camera back on him. “Let’s see yours.” You showed him your perfectly cooked bites and heard him curse under his breath. “I guess that means you admit defeat,” you said smiling at him feeling smug. He frowned at the camera, “Never.” 

Nct 127's reaction to having a s/o that enjoys singing

Request: I was wondering if I could request a reaction from NCT 127 to his s/o being a singer? like, not a professional or famous one but more like a casual singer who happens to be very good at it :) cheers!

A/N: i like singing myself and this was so fun to write , thanks for requesting !

Taeil:

Since he’s a really good singer himself , you were too shy to tell him that you yourself enjoyed singing , afraid that he may judge you .

But one afternoon while you were cooking lunch , you started singing to the music playing in the background , as you thought Taeil was sleeping in his room , like always . Little did you know he was mesmerised by your voice , as he appeared from behind you , harmonising and singing together , with a proud and bright smile on his face .

After that day , the both of you started singing together during your free time , as he gives you tips and advice on how to sing better .

So he teased you sarcastically at first , “ Wow , you sing so softly in the shower , i can’t hear you at all ” . And when you hit him playfully with your cheeks all reddened , he’d smile again and hug you, “ kidding babe , your singing’s wonderful , you should do that outside of the shower too , i want to hear it everyday ”

“ You’re so talented babe ”

“ I could listen to you sing all day and not get bored . ”

When he has the time he sings with you and both of you would often record song covers too .

Soon after he’d beg you to sing for him , claiming that he needs to see your ‘performance’ at least once a week .

He loves singing with you , especially when it’s a duet ballad song , as the both of you are able to interact and sing together ,showing your strong connection .

He saves your contact in his phone as “ my idol ❤ ” and likes to joke about making you a trainee in sm , then forming a collaborative unit with you , claiming that he’d be the dancer , you , the singer .

But he loves it most when you sing to him late at night , as the both of you are cuddled on the bed , as he finds your voice soothing and calming , making him fall asleep .

Like Taeyong , he smiles at you encouragingly whenever you sing , and would clap & cheer for you everytime after you finish .

He loves playing his guitar while you sing , and both of you could spend hours playing and singing together , and he’d compose songs for you to sing to when he has the time .

He often finds excuses to make you sing , but doesn’t make it obvious ,

“ You know they say , practice makes perfect , if you want to be as good as me , then sing more often ”

“ Sing for me now , i need to give you advice so you can improve babe ”

“ Your singing isn’t as good as mine but since i’m a nice boyfriend , i’m willing to listen ”

the-amazing-p3a  asked:

It's been to long, hun. <3 I was wondering if you would write a modern sonamy fic based on the song "If I Could Tell Her" from Dear Evan Hansen because this song literally makes me cry when I hear it. It's not perfectly canon but gosh it's a beautiful song

(x)

Missed you too, lovely!!! 

For those who don’t know, Nikki was in the Sonic comics wwwayyy back in the old days! He would be pretty pathetic… but then, when wishing to be strong, he turned into-! DA-DA-AAH! Sonic The Hedgehog! The hero and everything! Amy was dating Nikki, but she secretly also had a crush on Sonic.

So, Nikki IS Sonic! :D It’s a ‘split personality’ that Nikki is unaware of.

But because you want Modern, I thought of a great twist! What if Modern Sonic puts on glasses and wears one of Tails’s old sweatshirts? Amy runs into him and thinks she’s made a mistake! I think this’ll go nicely together :)

I hope this ‘twist’ will be better than what you wanted! :D When I heard the song, it was the first thing I could think of! If not, I’ll happily rewrite it more to your preferences :)

Prompt:

Sonic, after feeling Amy bump into him, at first wanted to act his usual way. He was wearing this type of ‘disguise’ mostly to go unnoticed without getting stopped by spectators wanting an autograph or other crazy fan girls chasing after him on what should have been his leisurely stroll around the place.

Lots of buildings had been taken down and remastered into beautiful new locations for tourist attractions and the like! Sonic had to get in on it! But with all the people… especially people only used to seeing him on the news, he wanted to avoid publicity.

Taking Tails’s old sweatshirt and getting fake glasses, he tried to blend in as a tourist or civilian.

Amy was gonna blow his whole cover!

He shied away and tried to wave his hand down, about to tell her to quiet down before she pulled back, and looked embarrassed.

“Oh! I’m so sorry! You just reminded me of someone else!” she patted his back which launched him a bit forward. Stumbling, he was suddenly reminded as he flailed his arms about that this was similar to his encounter with her when he was a big, hairy beast.

But there was no excuse for this other than the Superman disguise effect…

Glasses.

Sonic looked up, balancing himself from the impact of her hand’s force upon his back and center of gravity.

It was all in the glasses this time.

That, or Amy really needed a pair of her own.

Feeling a bit offended at first that even now she couldn’t tell it was him, he folded his arms and tapped his foot, hearing her spout out her apologies as if rehearsed for moments like this; and especially play the cute card.

“I’m really sorry about that!” She closed her eyes and scratched the back of her head slightly, sticking her tongue out before giving him a closer look, putting a finger to her mouth…

“But you really did look an awful lot like…”

“…Like?”

He leaned forward, smiling. He figured she may just need a second look.

She blinked a few times, before grinning nervously and turning away, putting a hand up in a fist by her face. “Nah, it was just my honest mistake.”

He frowned.

Pulling back, he put his hands on his hips.

“Still! You could pull of Sonic The Hedgehog if you lose those glasses and tacky clothes.” she tugged on his sweater, looking over it as he flinched back.

Sweat dropping, he silently thought of how Amy could kinda tell it was him, but couldn’t put two and two together… so it seemed.

He sighed, and smiled, thinking he could have fun with this, he gestured a hand out and continued the conversation; acting completely innocent to the reality around him.

“It’s okay, miss. And you’re name is..?”

“Amy!” she happily piped up, and he realized she totally fell for it. Even after hearing his ‘softer’ voice, she couldn’t tell it was him. “Amy Rose!”

He decided to act like a shyer boy, hoping to throw her off even more as he leaned forward and put his hands behind his back.

“Not THE Amy Rose?” He innocently leaned back, as if surprised.

“O-oh… you… you haven’t heard of me, have you?” She blushed, and covered her face, swaying back and forth. “I didn’t realize I was so popular!”

“Oh, of course! I know all about you!” Sonic continued to act it up, pleased by her reactions. “They say you’re the cutest girl in Sonic’s team.” he winked.

“Ahhh~ The press can be so darling~!” she chimed, getting more animated before fluttering her eyes to him and placing a hand out in front of him. “And you are?”

“M-me..? Uhh..” his glasses slopped a minute, symbolically showing his disguise slightly loosen a little, before he pushed them back up and smiled back down to her. “I’m … Nikki! Nikki The Hedgehog.”

“Ah! I knew you were a hedgehog!” Amy pointed, and grinned as the two shared a rather precious moment, before Amy continued on, thumping her chest. “Well! I mustn’t falter in finding my precious Sonic! Hope you enjoy the sights, Nikki!” she waved to rush off, but Sonic wasn’t done with her just yet…

“H-hang on!” he called out, holding his arms out as she turned around, curious as to why he had stopped her from leaving.

“Is something wrong?” She looked over her shoulder. “You lost or need directions or something?”

“More like something.” he continued to play the sweet boy and looked shyly modest and humble as he ducked his head down a minute.

“The truth is… I once met Sonic.”

“What!?”

The evening was spent with Sonic (Nikki) walking around and exploring the sights with Amy, keeping up his disguise. He liked how she didn’t fawn so much over him when he was Nikki, and rather enjoyed her ‘normal’ company, which he didn’t see so often.

He didn’t pull any moves or anything, but there were moments where he would look over her shoulder, and smile, thinking her calmer self more desirable than the Amy he always encountered as himself.

They ended up getting ice cream, “My treat!” Sonic winked, thumbs up’ing in his signature way which almost blew his cover as his glasses slipped again when she stared at him suspiciously.

She shrugged it off though, to his relief.

“You sure do act like him, how long did you say he stayed with you on your farm with your grandpa before taking off after saving you from the fire started by Eggman?”

He had dug a pretty deep hole of a backstory… so he realized.

Sweat dropping again at having forgotten his fake story of how he met himself, he sat down by a bench near her as she accompanied him; giggling and grinning the whole way as she happily ate her ice cream.

Her little but frequent licks made him raise an eyebrow but think it rather humorous. She would never eat that way in front of him. To her, it was too messy and unlady-like around her one true love!

He kinda mocked at that. Liking her more when she ate naturally, and without restraint.

“Oh, that’s right. I think he stayed till his feet were cooled down from all the running.” He looked away, faking remembering, before he got a wicked idea pop into his head.

“Hey… I think I just remembered.” He looked forward then.

“W-what?” Amy looked concerned, as he looked away, trying to avoid her curiosity but secretly feeding it.

“I-It’s nothing… he might not want me to tell you about it..” he closed his eyes and folded his arms, “Hmm..”

“T-tell me! Tell me, tell me, tell me! Was it about me?!” Amy tugged back and forth on him, making him laugh internally while pretending to be startled on the outside.

He weakly smiled up at her after she stopped shaking him. “I-It was about you… yes.”

“W-what did he say… Sonic talking about me?! Eeep!” she let him go, totally in shock, before looking forward and then covering her face, blushing and squee’ing as she rocked side to side.

Sonic looked over his shoulder, smirking wickedly, before looking back to her as kind as any manipulator in a golden opportunity to prank his friend could be.

“He said you’re rather pushy.”

Her whole face flinched into white.

A single leaf rolled by in the wind, before she shook him again. “That’s not funny! Tell me the truth!”

“Wha-ah-ah! Okay, okay! But you have to promise not to tell!” he squinted his eyes, before thinking that was enough and he should probably say something kinder to her.

“He… He said…” before he could think of another comeback, he suddenly noticed her eyes slopping down and the genuine concern in them.

He realized his error was more than a few simple nice words could fix, and sweat dropped a moment as he thought more sincerely about what to retort back with.

“He said…”

He saw her eyes sparkle with hope, her mouth slightly open, the anticipation of something kind from her hero’s lips made him realize this had to be something that would last with her…

Or screw her up.

“Ehem.” Actually growing truly shy, Sonic looked away, a faint pink on his cheek as he put his hand over his mouth, lifting a leg stylishly up on his knee, something he would naturally do, but his character, Nikki, wouldn’t.

“He thought you were… Awesome.”

“..He thought I was awesome? Sonic?” Amy rose an eyebrow, before scoffing.

“Definitely!” Sonic turned back to her, growing in confidence a bit with the help of the disguise…

“How!” Amy leaned forward, pouting demandedly as she was fully paying attention to his next little ‘story’.

“Well…” Sonic rolled his eyes to the side, now getting kinda awkward and nervous.

“…He said… There’s nothing like your smile. Like sunshine you could feel.”

“Really?” she pulled back, amazed.

This reaction gave Sonic even more confidence, though he was still leaning back away from her.

He looked away, thinking again.

“He said… you never knew how wonderful that smile could make someone feel.”

“..Like sunshine?” She cutely tilted her head.

All of a sudden, Sonic’s eyes dropped slightly and he leaned up, becoming more straight-backed and speaking even softer.

“And he noticed… when you get bored,… you puff up a corner of your cheek. It’s so discreet. But really sweet.”

“He said that? Honestly?”

“He said you still read those silly stories. Trying to get ideas on how to make your own, a real, reality.”

He suddenly smiled, moving more towards her.

“But he kept it all inside his head. What he saw, he left unsaid. And though he wanted too. He couldn’t talk to you. He couldn’t find a way… but he would always say…”

He leaned more forward.

“If I could tell her.. exactly what she meant to me. If I could tell her… that the way she laughs, it always gets to me. But you’re ideas of love were worlds apart. But he always wanted to tell you… just how… um. I don’t remember.” He suddenly grew nervous about being so ‘honest’ in his lying and nervously put his hand to his chin, looking away and kicking his leg back up, trying to dodge the conversation any further.

“Did he say he anything else?” Amy was completely infatuated with his words… as she placed a gentle, but pleading hand for him to continue on his knee.

The sensation shot him off in a quick comment, not even thinking about it, just impulse.

“Anything else? Well, of course he did! He said so many things I’m just trying to remember the best ones…” he shrugged, again, his smile turning more sheepish but realer by the second…

“He thought… you looked really pretty-ER.. Cool! When you mastered how to swing that hammer of yours!” He kept swishing his arms around, pretending to hold her hammer and swing it around.

She giggled, “He really did?”

“Oh, of course! And he… wondered how you learned to be so graceful on the battlefield!”

“Sonic..” she looked down, holding a closed-hand to her heart, looking deeply touched. “But he thinks our idea of love is two world’s apart?”

He seemed to be lost in how adorable and touched she looked… If only he could…

“But what can you do… when there seems like such a great divide… Between what you want and what would be… or seem… too… much.”

“He just seems so far away…” Amy looked away, slightly arching her back and bringing her knees closer to her sides, her legs wrapped a little over the other in a lady-like manner, as if she was withdrawing herself in insecurities for a moment. “I never knew he felt that way…”

How did he even begin to tell her?

“And what could he do when the distance seemed so wide?” he moved closer.

“How could he say he….” he stopped himself a moment, his eyes widening.

(AU moment. If this was true canon, he would turn away here and I’d end it… but since we’re going off a song that isn’t ‘perfectly’ canon anyway~ >wn>)

“I love you.”

“Huh?” she turned back to him.

“…I love you…” he suddenly seemed to be realizing it himself. A huge open smile coming on his face.

“I love you!”

“W-woah! N-Nikki…” she got up, holding her hands out, “I.. I should go.” She lowered her eyes and scanned the ground, before taking off.

“W-wait-!” he held out his hand before twitching and stopping himself.

He pulled it back, shaking his head and gripping it.

“..Don’t be stupid… Just stop yourself now, Sonic.” he sat back down fully upon the bench, staring at the ground as he slowly…

Covered…

His face…

“But we’re a million worlds apart.. I don’t even know where to start… If I could…

           …………………………………………   Tell her.”

                           He took off the glasses and placed his hand on his eyes.

(Hope you enjoyed it! :D The song is gorgeous, haha!)

I was too young to have been tired by the time marriage equality passed, too cocky to have been hopeful, too bitter to have been excited. I was shocked by the force with which I became a person who was free. It propelled me upright, a marionette of bones and joy.

There is video of me bouncing my way into a crashing group hug — I shared it on Facebook and inadvertently came out to my grandmother. A coworker got up to give an impromptu toast, and I was gripped suddenly by the desire to walk up and kiss her. I drank two glasses of champagne, instead, and played “Chapel of Love” out loud in the office while straight men patted me on the shoulder.

It has been a long two years since. It has been a fistfight. It has been a car crash.

Anxiety has hovered close all this last week, touching the back of my neck and tugging at my ankle. On Friday, I made a small sober scene at a party and couldn’t apologize. Three nights before that, I walked by Cadman Plaza at sunset and came home caught in the kind of rolling, gasping cry that can’t possibly last as long as it does, grateful for the polite indifference of every tired rider of the B26 toward Bed-Stuy.

All week, it was like that. And that girl, the one who gave a toast, the one I hadn’t thought about kissing until I did, every morning, she woke up and made me breakfast and told me that she loved me. And told me again, when I asked. And again. And when I came home at night, we’d practice dancing across the bedroom, humming loudly to whichever song we couldn’t remember the words to that day. Sam Cooke and Etta James.

“Do you feel any better? No? Well, let’s go again.”

And we would.

It’s the strangest thing, when anxiety lifts. Like coming home after a long trip. You take a look around and realize you left yourself with a sink full of dirty dishes and things you didn’t mean to say.

Today I ran up four flights of MTA stairs to catch the downtown Q train, and when I got there, Edie Windsor had died. And I thought about the grief that propels a body into anger, into action. About the world Edie created through sheer force of will — one in which she married a woman she wouldn’t have been allowed to dance close to, sixty years ago.

She leaves behind a wife, a law, a legacy, and two girls in a little one-bedroom in Brooklyn, tripping over each others’ feet and grinning.

Yuri on Ice interview translation - Pash! 2016/12 (p16-17)

This is an interview with Chacott’s Yuiko Sagiri that was published on Pash! Dec. 2016 issue. Chacott is a brand that mostly makes dance costumes/clothing/accessories, but they happen to create costumes for figure skating as well. She was in charge to come up with the designs for the original costumes appeared in the anime.

Usually I only post text, without images, and I was wondering what to do with this article, because it’s not as easy to understand without pictures. They have most of them on their blog too, but they’re all in different pages and it would have been a pain to link, therefore in the end I decided to include pictures taken from the magazine. Please understand that the pictures are only for reference and are not meant to be high quality scans (in fact I just took them with my phone and fixed them a little).

Since the post is heavier than usual because of the pictures I tried to use a cut for the first time. Maybe I should do it for long interviews as well…

Every blog always has a what if mc was a kpop star or was a amazing singer...how would the rfa and v and unknown react if mc was tone deaf and sounded like nails on a chalkboard(mostly because I'm the worst singer ever, btw I love your blog :3 )

Okay but that’s literally me too! My singing voice is so awful too so I feel you lol! I’m sorry it took me so long to write this but I hope that you like it!! :D


Yoosung

  • Yoosung was off in his room playing games like usual so you decided to take a shower
  • He won yet another round of LOLOL and took a little break
  • When he took his headphones off, Yoosung heard what sounded like someone screeching to a song from in the bathroom
  • Yoosung shuddered at the horrible noise and assumed that it was a song that you were playing from your phone
  • When you got out of the shower, you walked into the kitchen to find Yoosung making some dinner
  • “Hey MC what was song were you listening to in the shower? And who was the singer, they were awful!” Yoosung asked you
  • You turned your head in embarrassment and awkwardly answered “Uh that was me singing Yoosung.”
  • He immediately feels so bad and runs over to hug you almost crying as he says “I’m so so so sorry MC! You weren’t that bad, really! I’m just a little tired from gaming and I probably didn’t really understand what I was listening to, please forgive me!”
  • You told him that it was alright and that you wouldn’t try to sing as loudly anymore
  • But Yoosung still felt horrible and made your favorite dinner for you and kept reassuring you that you weren’t really that bad of a singer

Zen

  • Zen was practicing his script for a new musical that he was starring in with you - He had a long singing part that he was excited about
  • Zen had the voice of an angel and you loved listening to him practice  
  • Once he finished practicing for his solo song, Zen asked for you to practice a duet song with him
  • He started singing the first part and when it was your turn, you sang your heart out to try and be as good as Zen
  • You finished singing your part and looked at Zen excited to hear what his opinion was on your singing - Zen’s eyes went wide, how could someone as perfect as you have such a terrible singing voice?
  • “So how did I do Zen?” You asked him - He blinked a couple of times and forced a smile saying “Your singing voice is uh good MC.”
  • You smiled brightly and hugged him, telling him how excited you were that Zen approved of your singing voice
  • Zen smiled and hugged you back, there was no way he could tell you how awful your singing voice was
  • “Hey MC, how about I give you some singing lessons to make your voice even better!” Zen told you
  • You happily agreed and Zen sighed in relief
  • Even though your singing voice was atrocious, Zen taught you some basic skills and over time it got slightly better
  • Zen just made sure not to let you sing in public for both your own sake and his

Jaehee

  • You and Jaehee were closing up the cafe for the night after a long day
  • You were cleaning up the cups while Jaehee was sweeping the floor
  • Jaehee was singing in a small voice and your eyes lit up when you heard her
  • You knew the song she was singing so you decided to join in and sing in your best voice
  • Well your best singing voice was simply terrible and Jaehee jumped when she heard you sing - “MC… What in the world was that?” Jaehee asked cautiously
  • You smiled and said “That was me singing silly! You have a great singing voice Jaehee, we should sing together sometime!”
  • Jaehee sighed and decided to state the obvious and say “MC, your singing voice isn’t very good. But mine isn’t either so let’s not sing together.”
  • You frowned a little but agreed saying “Yeah I guess you’re right. We can just listen to Zen sing in one of his musicals instead!”
  • Jaehee smiled in relief and nodded saying that she wholeheartedly agreed with you
  • So for he rest of the night and Jaehee cuddled on the couch and watched Zen’s musicals, neither of you singing along  
  • Jaehee was silently relieved that you took the news about your singing voice so well and decided that she would tell you all about your good qualities instead

Jumin

  • After another long, stressful day of work, Jumin was looking forward to coming home
  • On his way home, he thought about how he wanted to have a nice dinner with you and just cuddle each other for the rest of the night
  • Jumin walked in to the penthouse and the sound of someone’s singing was heard
  • He thought that his ears would bleed from the horrendous singing so Jumin went to find the source
  • Jumin was left almost speechless when he saw that the horrible singing was coming from you
  • You were laying down on the bed singing in your ‘unique’ singing voice to Elizabeth the 3rd
  • “MC, what’s wrong with your voice?” Jumin asked startling you and Elizabeth the 3rd
  • You smiled saying “I’m just singing a little song for Elizabeth the 3rd! We were both waiting for you to come home and got bored.”
  • Jumin gave you a confused look and said “I don’t understand. Your singing voice is appalling but it seems like Elizabeth the 3rd enjoyed it. She doesn’t even like it when I sing to her…”
  • You pouted and said “Hmph, well maybe my singing voice is better than yours Jumin! I bet you’re an awful singer too, sing something for me.”
  • When you heard Jumin sing, everything became right in the world
  • Jumin smiled when he saw your surprised look and pulled you in for a hug
  • From that night on, you had Jumin sing you to sleep every night since his singing voice was perfection
  • But Jumin still thought that even though your voice was awful, he always had you sing for Elizabeth the 3rd since she seemed to like your singing voice better than his for some very strange reason

Seven

  • You and Seven were bored one night and decided to go out for a karaoke night for something new and fun
  • Seven was extremely hyped when the two of you got there and immediately started searching for duet songs for the two of you to sing
  • Once he found the perfect song, Seven dragged you onto the stage to sing
  • It was some cheesy romance song and it was fun until it was time for your part to sing
  • Never in his life did Seven hear someone sing so horribly and the rest of the crowd agreed
  • Some people started booing you and telling you how terrible your singing voice was
  • When Seven saw you on the verge of tears, he grabbed the microphone and started singing in the worst voice that he could come up with
  • Everyone’s attention was now focused on Seven who then told him how awful of a singer he was
  • He had enough of the rude people and took your hand and lead you back to his car
  • “Why did you do that Saeyoung? I mean I know that I’m not a great singer, but I didn’t realize that I was that bad.” You sad sadly to Seven
  • Seven scratched the back of his neck and said “Well no offense, but your singing voice is kind of… bad. But there’s no way I’m letting those people get away with saying those mean things about you. They’re going to be destroyed by the Defender of Justice!”
  • So that night, Seven went through and hacked into all of the obnoxious audience member’s accounts and essentially ruined them for making fun of you
  • When he was finished, Seven told you all kinds of jokes to make you feel better and he said that he could use your terrible singing voice as a weapon against the other RFA members when they wouldn’t listen to him
  • You agreed because who couldn’t say no to this adorable dork?

V

  • You and V were doing some spring cleaning mostly cleaning out his thousands of pictures that he’s taken
  • V was in the other room tidying up and humming to himself in his own little world
  • But he was rudely awakened when he heard some kind of terrible singing
  • He assumed that you were playing some kind of music and went to investigate
  • V’s eyes widened when he heard the awful singing wasn’t coming from some one else, but it was coming from you
  • “Is something wrong V?” You asked as he continued to stare at you
  • “Was that you singing just now MC?” V questioned
  • “Yes it was! Why? Was it really that bad?” You asked nervously
  • V smiled telling you no that your voice was beautiful and he was just surprised was all
  • There was no way this angel could break your heart and tell you that your singing was horrible, no matter how bad it really was
  • So for the rest of the day, you sang in your awful voice to V and he only smiled, telling you how good you were
  • At the end of the day you had finally convinced V to sing a little something for you
  • And when you heard him sing, you told him that you would rather him sing than you since he was clearly much better
  • V had never been so thankful in his life at your request

Unknown

  • Saeran was acting moodier than usual today and that was saying something
  • You felt bad for him since he seemed more sad than anything else so you thought of some ways to cheer Saeran up
  • You grabbed him some ice cream and sat down on the couch with him handing him a spoon
  • Saeran started to feel a little bit better so when he was done, you made him lay down on the bed to cuddle with him
  • You laid behind Saeran, stroking his hair and he seemed to be calming down
  • That was until you thought it would be a good idea to sing a little song to help him fall asleep
  • Saeran sat straight up when he heard your terrible singing and gave you a strange look
  • “MC, what the hell was that?”
  • “I was just trying to sing you a little song to help you fall asleep since you seem kind of upset… I’m sorry if I did something to upset you.” You said sadly to Saeran
  • He sighed and said “Well yeah your singing voice sucks. It’s worse than Saeyoung’s laugh.”
  • You were about to get up and leave him alone but Saeran grabbed your arm and pulled you back onto the bed
  • “Your singing voice may be awful but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be with you. Sorry if I hurt your feelings and thanks for trying to make me feel better.” Saeran mumbled
  • You had always made Saeran feel better because of your kind heart but Saeran made a mental note not to ask you to sing for him ever again
  • Unless it was to make Seven go crazy

Fic Update: Any Four Walls: FUBAR

FUBAR

As soon as the bad turian lady came and collected Tyrra—without acknowledging Rose in her little hidey-hole of blankets under the desk—Rose started the game of hide-and-seek she’d been itching for. She was really good at hide-and-seek. This time, she wasn’t looking for a hidden person, but a hidden panel or vent or something. She knew that, in a spaceship, all the air had to come from somewhere. Air came through vents.

When Joker explained it to her back on the Normandy, he had her hold out her arm. With the flat of his hand, he brushed his palm down her skin. “This is like the outside of the ship. Nothing gets in, right?” She nodded. Then, with a fingertip, he traced the blue-green lines underneath, running all the way from her wrist to her elbow. “Inside every ship, you’ve got the guts. Life support, circuitry, electronics, all kinds of important stuff. That’s what keeps things running. They’re all connected, and most of the time, you don’t pay attention to them. Only when something goes FUBAR, uh, wrong, do you have to worry about what the veins and arteries are doing.” Then he’d showed her all kinds of cool maps and pictures that showed not just the room with all the bunkbeds that she slept in, or the big room that was her mom and dad’s, or the one with the star map in it, but all the squiggly lines that meant power and air and even toilet waste, since apparently peeing into space wasn’t a good thing.

Tyrra’s room definitely had air, it definitely had power, and it definitely had a bathroom. Rose started there first, because it was small and because she’d have a good excuse if the bad lady came back right away for some reason, like when Mom always forgot something in the mornings when she was taking them to school. Usually her coffee cup. She always went back for the coffee cup. It was one Rose and Tyrra painted themselves, with their handprints and hearts and some kind of weird turian butterfly things and Earth butterflies, too.

Big Bang reactions when their gf has the same humor sense as Bianca del Rio

[GIFs not mine]
A/N:
Heyy… So I just watched 20 minutes of Bianca del Rio and she/he(?) is so funny I can not even. Her jokes are the best and I am still laughing ( I could never be Kardashian because I have talent) ahahhahahah I laughed at that so much (btw I like Kardashians)&( Oh that’s part of the costume?… Security….)&(come on, every joke’s not a winner, just like detox) ahhahahahhahahI’m rlly sorry if I missed the point of his humor….

T.O.P
He liked your sense of humor, but sometimes it was even too much for him. He tried to stop you from making offensive jokes around those people who he knew would take them serious, but you did it anyways so he had to explain you are famous for that. He tried to come to every gig you had and he laughed the most out of all of them. It was annoying for him at first but he got used to it and now he can’t stop hearing your jokes.
“Wild and sassy, that was my name in prison.”(you)
“You better stop YOU. What if one day I start making jokes like that huh?”

You met at the party he was at and he thought your humor was the best and then you started dating. He still loved your jokes and you still had same humor. He was sometimes embarrassed when you made unnecessary jokes in front of important people, but the other members and other YG groups loved you and you basically got to hang with all of the YG groups. You even made a song with iKON and GD was really proud of you for doing so well.
"We’re Drag Queens in a competition! The only thing worse is F*cking prison!” (you say that to Yang HyunSuk in front of GD)

He laughed at your jokes, ever since he found you on youtube. He kept watching your best moments and went to a lot of your gigs and even hired you once. Then he tried flirting with you and you loved how he tried and went on a date with him. And he started using your jokes. Then you were dating for 2 years. He still laughed at every fucking joke. He really loved you, not only because of your humor tho.

It was actually you who fell for him because he was so sweet while making jokes, but you were just rude (in a funny way).You were friends at first but then started dating. You gave him your sarcastic answers almost every day. He knew you won’t stop making jokes even tho sometimes you were too much to handle. He liked introducing you to others and he loved when you came in the studio and made everyone laugh when they were stressed.
“Look I actually made a friend today. Me. Friend.”

He met you at a business party and he couldn’t stop talking to you. You loved his personality and he liked yours too and that was enough for you to start dating. He loved it if you asked him to go on a stage with him and sometimes he asked you to come at his concert and entertain VIPs(the fans of course). He loved it when you joked with other members and he would laugh hard af.

Could you do RFA (+ Saeran & V) when MC plays piano but cannot seem to play a difficult part in one song; they get really stressed about it and even skip meals to practise and stuff? I hope that made sense. Thank you ^^

Hey Nonnie!!! I hope this fits what you wanted. I don’t know much about piano so I had to keep the piano part of it generic, sorry bby ;~; But I did my best since I knew two people who are learning piano and I just wanna give them big hugs so I went based off that. I hope you enjoy it!!! ^^ ~ Admin 626 

YOOSUNG

  • he was so excited when you started playing piano!!
  • He just thought it was a really cool way for you to express yourself
  • One night he wakes up at 2 am because he’s thirsty and he sees you practicing???
    • “MC wtf you need to sleep”
    • “No! I need to get the rhythm of this song down!!!”
  • You seemed really irritated so he backed off
  • But over the next few days he notices you haven’t been eating either
  • And boy oh boy this little hoe takes charge
    • he DRAGS your ass away from the piano
    • he refuses to let you do this to yourself
  • “MC, learning an instrument isn’t something that you can get in a day or two by practicing as much as you can. It’s going to take time. It’s going to be frustrating. It’s going to make you want to pull your hair out. But if you’re not healthy, it’s going to make things so much harder on your brain and body.”
    • thefactthatYoosungistheonelecturingyouonselfcarewakesyouup
  • He doesn’t let you go near the piano for a day or two, he wants you to remember that you have a life outside of piano!!!
    • So many snuggles and kisses omg he’s trying to kill you with his cuteness
  • After that, he sits with you when you practice so you can talk to him about your frustrations with the song your practicing
    • Hetriestolistenbutyoulooksoprettywhenyouplaythathegetsdistracted

ZEN

  • Honestly he’s in charge of all your self care
    • He buys all your beauty products (only if you want that kinda stuff tho!!! You’re hot af with or without them), he makes sure you go on walks, he makes sure you eat a decent meal, etc
  • He honestly loves when you start learning how to play because he can help you!!! Hahaletspretendhecanplaypianofornowokay
    • but you wanna do it all on ur own so you refuse his help
  • but he noticed right away when you became obsessed with a certain song
    • You just weren’t acting like yourself…?
  • Usually when you didn’t get something, you’d give yourself a break and come back to it but you were obsessively playing
  • When he noticed you didn’t eat a meal, omg this boy went HAM
    • You’re his princess, he’s not gonna let you do this to yourself
  • When you wake up the next day, the keyboard in his apartment is gone
    • THIS HOE IS SO DRAMATIC HE TOOK AWAY YOUR KEYBOARD
  • You are so, SO angry at him, you don’t talk to him for a few days
  • ·      You finally give him a change to explain himself becausehearinghiscrieswasheartbreaking because you wanted to hear his side
    • The keyboard was at Jumin’s house!!!
  • “MC, I just don’t want you always playing it… You’re my treasure and I hate seeing you so worked up over it. I thought maybe if you had some time away from it, you’d feel better and you’d be easier on yourself.”  
  • Cue ugly crying because the song made you feel like a failure and how could you forget that you’re the world to Zen and he would do anything for you
  • You take it easier on the piano and when you are frustrated, Zen helps you and gives you tons of kisses to help you feel better

JAEHEE

  • Listen,,,this precious soul,,,does not deserve this,,,,
    • She loved that you were playing piano
    • Allshecouldimagineisyourcutieassplayingpianoinhercoffeeshop
  • But it wasn’t worth it if you were going to stress so much!!!
  • She’d never say anything if you slammed your fingers on the keys in frustration because she knows learning an instrument isn’t the easiest in the world
    • But when you start skipping meals??? Oh my gosh this lil lady gets SO worried about you
  • But she never wants to say anything to you because you seem so passionate about playing piano
    • She knows what it’s like; she’s been there. Her high GPA didn’t happen bc she was smart, it was because she WANTED good grades and dedicated herself to it
  • But you stressing out stresses her out??? It’s actually taking a toll on her??? omfghowdareyoudothistoher
    • SHE ACTUALLY PASSES OUT AT WORK ONE DAY
  • “MC, please…please realize that you can’t force the song into your fingers. The slower you go, the faster you’ll get there, okay?”
  • baeheeyouretheonewhopassedoutletuscomfortyouomg
  • You finally notice how self-destructive your behavior was? You lost like 10 pounds? MCwhy
  • Now when you get frustrated, you use your fingers for a lil something else to remind you how good they are

JUMIN

    • Helovesimaginingyouplayingforhimafterhehasaharddayatwork
  • He hires u a fantastic teacher
  • hE BUYS YOU A GRAND PIANO??? Omfg someone give this boy a spending limit
  • But the fact he went so far for you puts a lot of pressure on you
  • you’re skipping meals, not getting enough sleep, you’re barely even going outside udumbhoe
  • your piano teacher notices how bad you look and tells jumin!!!
  • This lil sweet bean is so mad at himself
    • Did he do something wrong???
    • How did he not notice something was wrong to begin with?!
  • While there’s a hurricane of feelings in him, he’s really straight forward with you
  • “MC, please take a break. Eat something, get some fresh air, anything…please?
    • “I can’t, Jumin. You spent so much money on me, I need to work as much as I can to the best I can be!”
    • omfg this is what she’s worried about, how silly of her
  • “I want to make one thing clear. The money does not matter, okay? This isn’t an investment. You’re not an investment. You’re human. I just wanted to be part of something that makes you happy. Right now, this isn’t making you happy, and I will not let you internalize this and act like it’s normal, okay?”
    • jujubeursosweetomg
  • Jumin keeps SUCH a close eye on you after this
  • He’s there for you at any sign of distress and will whisk you away to an animal shelter so you two can have fun socializing with the animals
    • Cuteness overload helps with stress!!!

SAEYOUNG

  • This boy doesn’t even know that you take up piano
  • He’s holed up in his room on another project that takes him WEEKS to finish
    • He does notice that you’re not nagging him to eat or sleep but he figured you knew he wasn’t going to listen?
  • When he comes out and he sees you at the piano, he gets so excited!!!
    • “You’re learning piano? Well, that’s just grand”
      • wait why did you stop playing

  • He drags you into the shower and omg so much love from this lil dude, he washes your hair and everything
    • Makes you eat and he covers the piano with some space themed sheets he has, he is not letting you near that thing for awhile!!!
  • He takes you to bed and you end up on top of with your face nuzzling his neck, his arms wrapped around you
  • “MC, I know you don’t wanna hear this right now, but when I heard you playing, it was really good. You poured your feelings into that song and that means so much more than hitting a wrong note, okay? Not everyone has the ability to play as passionately as you.”
  • isSaeyoungbeingreallysweetandseriouswhatisthis???
    • “Plus this relationship can’t have two people with really unhealthy habits, that would be a lot of treble”
    • Nevermindhesadumbass

SAERAN

  • Omg this boy thinks you’re an angel when he sees you seated at the piano
    • Thinks you’re a goddess when he actually hears you playing this little cinnamon roll can’t handle how amazing you are
  • But you look so frustrated? Why do you look so frustrated, you’re fantastic, what
  • He doesn’t really say anything because if something as wrong, you’d tell him
  • Except you don’t? You didn’t wanna bother him with something so small

    • He pretty much gives you an ultimatum
  • “MC, I love you, okay? I want you to be healthy. I think you’re amazing at piano and I would love to see you continue on playing. But if you keep up with these bad habits, I will destroy the piano.”
    • Saranwrapplsdontbesoscary
  • But this definitely did wake you up
    • Edgelord McGee said I love you?? He expressed care for you whatisthis

“You are my sunshine.”

Most nights went by without incident.  You’d both sleep soundly through it and wake up the next morning relatively well-rested.  Bright eyed and bushy tailed and ready for whatever the new day decided to throw at you next.  Some nights, however, were the complete opposite.  Tony’s panic attacks would seize him mid dream and he’d wake up shouting.  Thrashing about on the bed and waking you up in the process.

Tonight was one of those nights.  You were awoken by a terrified scream and the bed suddenly shifting as Tony lurched himself awake.  Taking a moment to calm your own racing heartbeat you slowly sat up and reached across the darkness to squeeze his shoulder.  “Tony?”

“Sorry.”  He mumbled.  Each time he woke you up this way he apologized first.  He hated waking you up, even if he was sometimes glad it meant he wouldn’t have to go through these attacks alone.

“Come here.”  Easily he curled into you, arms hugging at your waist while his nose buried itself in the crook of your neck.  The weight of his body settled comfortably against your side as you hugged onto his shoulders to pull him into you more securely.  After each panic attack this was how you’d get Tony to fall back asleep.  Holding each other tightly and trying your best to keep his mind off of whatever terror it was that plagued him.

“When I couldn’t sleep at night my Mom used to sing me this song called you are my sunshine. It worked like a charm every single time.”  Tony made an unintelligible noise against your neck.  If you hadn’t known any better you would’ve thought he was falling asleep again.  But you knew that he was wide awake.  He just didn’t feel like talking about it.  Breathing deeply you began running a hand through Tony’s hair and began to hum the song quietly.  Hoping that it would be able to give Tony some kind of comfort, like it had given you for years.

So I was thinking it would be funny to photoshop this pic of Marina and the diamonds next to Onision when he “cried” because of his IRS problem saying: “you can’t do better than that Onion boy” it’s a reference to one of her songs better than that from the album froot, I thought it would be funny cause I came to know onion from the video he made about her 😊

Live Spectacle Naruto 2017

(A not completely spoiler free review…)

So, yesterday I made quite a last minute decision to watch this performance after all, which of course meant I had to hope I could still get a ticket on the day itself. Although it turned out the be a lottery, because too many people showed up, I got lucky and secured myself a seat (on the 3rd row, far right corner). The seat itself wasn’t all that bad, it was just that… from the angle I was watching none of the projections actually lined up with the actors. Actually, I think only the people in the center block of the theater (and maybe those far in the back) really got to enjoy all the spectacle of the projections… and from my angle the moveable “screens” were also pretty pointless (for some scenes they should really just have used screens that covered te whole stage and not just the middle section, but on the other hand it was also fun tho have a peek at the “backstage”)… 
But anyway, that’s pretty much the only complaints I have about this show! Really, it was awesome and definitly worth the money of the ticket. If you love Naruto (and musicals) and you have a chance to watch it, I reccomend you do! 

Good, onto a little more in depth review!
