In response to questions about my earlier post from a C-EXOL in regards to Yixing (Lay) not being able to attend the upcoming Exordium in (insert country name) 2017 tour, I’m going to attempt to give a run down of what’s going on as I understand it. Any citizens of either country please correct me if there are any inaccuracies.
As of Today (yesterday for Korea) the South Korean court officially removed Park Geun-Hye as president…she gone. However, while she was in office (around summer time 2016), S. Korea and the U.S. of A came up with, agreed to creating and executed a THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) defense system to protect them against the missile threats that were coming from N. Korea. China was not a fan of the system for they believe “it will enable deep military surveillance that undermines Chinese and Russian security.”
Once S. Korea gave the thumbs up to execute the system, China began restricting all things Hallyu:
Some of the restrictions reportedly outlined in the prohibition are:
A ban on Korean organizations filming in Korea
A ban on investing in new Korean agencies
A ban on Korean idol concerts with over 10,000 audience members
A ban on Korean-Chinese collaborative projects
A ban on broadcasting dramas with Korean actors
These bans include satellite broadcasts and online video sites.
Remember when Uncontrollably Fond came out and Suzy and Kim Woo Bin were supposed to go over to China to promote the drama and do a fan meeting but it mysteriously got cancelled like the day before? yeah, this is why. Remember when EXO was supposed to do an Exordium in Shanghai and that abruptly got cancelled too? Yeah, this is why. Remember when Chou Tzu-yu from Twice waived a Taiwan flag on national television and some of y’all ripped her to shreds publicly causing the girl to have a mini nervous breakdown and Twice was banned from Chinese TV as a result!? yeah, China also opposes Taiwan’s independence. Remember when Yixing posted the Chinese flag on IG and dang near all of y’all ripped him to shreds too!?!? yeah….i’m gonna save that rant for another post.
So why are C-EXOLs asking for support for Yixing from international & K-EXOLs? because he is literally banned from any Korean activity!! our dear unicorn can’t be with EXO at this time because of political differences and this applies to any kpop group that has a Chinese member: F(X), Miss A, Super Junior, EXO, etc. etc. Yixing was the face for Lotte Duty free in Korea with EXO but all the Chinese uproar has cancelled that and he has been removed.
So there you have it folks. It’s always unfortunate and discouraging to read about these things not just in your own country but around the world. Politics is a beast and it feeds on greed, fear and corruption. It’s like Biff Tannen from Back to the Future, like Scar from The Lion King, like Sid from Toy Story. Hopefully you will keep the other innocent citizens of said countries who are now caught in this mess in your thoughts as well.
So I was rereading the Fantastic Beasts textbook...
… And there was something that got me wondering. Newt loves all of his Beasts. “None of the creatures in that case are dangerous!” Even including the erumpent and the Nundu (which his book describes as, “Possibly one of the most dangerous beast in the world.”). He cares so much about all of them.
But according to the About the Author, Newt was also responsible for the creation of the Werewolf Registry. The thing that stopped Remus Lupin from being able to live like a real person for most of his life.
Why would Newt create something so vile?
Why does Newt seem to hate werewolves? Unless…
We know this happened in 1947. After the franchise ends (1945). We know Newt and Tina are still alive and in the 90′s. But we know nothing about the futures of Queenie, Jacob, Leta, or Credence…
What if one of them gets killed by a werewolf? Maybe even a werewolf Newt had defended. Stood up for. Trusted.
Newt just wants to protect the Magical Creatures of the world. He doesn’t understand people as well, but he wants to protect them too. Just what would it take to break that?
Give me a 'Oh, my God, I thought you were going to die. Please don’t ever scare me like that again.' This one's a challenge - I've been through that myself, and I'd like to see how the two compare... do your best, Ava. Congratulations on the 500.
This one’s on you. I hope you like angst and tears.

casual way of indicating that something awful was unfortunately made worse.
Robin discovering Starfire had been kidnapped was the wound; Red X being the
one behind it would have been the salt. It had been serious, but nothing the
team couldn’t handle, and nothing Starfire couldn’t get out of on her own.

Could you create the world in FtWD VIII? “You would have walked into my bar one summer night,” Elyza whispered as hips moved against her own, wanting to go again. “I would have seen you and fallen in love, but played it overly cool. Invited you back to mine. Fucked you til sun up and sent you on your way.” Please. And thank you for your work.
“Yeah, yeah, I swear I go to class,” she muttered, meandering around the back dock in small, lazy circles as she mumbled into the phone balanced on her shoulder. “I’m not working too many hours. I’m getting it all done, I swear.”
On the other end, a woman fret and tried to make sure the bartender kept up with her studies, all while still on the other side of the world. It made Elyza smile, despite the roll of her eyes to each mundane, motherly question.

was no exception. You came in 20 minutes early just to try your luck that maybe— just maybe — you’d see them in the flesh. Your co-workers shook their
heads and you groaned. They haven’t come by at all.
You didn’t hear the phone ring but you
definitely heard the words ‘tofu pizza’. You perked up and Max, the one on the
phone, turned to you with a smirk. ”..and three meat lovers, got it. Do
you want any drinks?“ You leaned over the counter and gave Max a huge
smile. He chuckled and pushed your face away before you fell. "We can get
it to you in about 25 minutes.. yeah, it’s no problem. We have someone who can be

to hug him but he kept you at arm’s length. “Thank you for choosing Pizza

Sam and Eileen volunteered to spend the night watching JoJo to give Dean and

It’s in the middle of a meeting
when Graves suddenly feels the band on his finger grow hot and agitated. He
stops mid sentence, hands braced down on the end of the conference room table,
as images flash across his mind’s eye – quick snap shots of things until
finally, he has what he needs.
He presses his thumb to the
underside of his ring finger and against the band itself and says, “I’m coming,
hang on,” before turning to the room at large.
“Director Graves,” Picquery
blinks, cool and composed but he can see in her gaze that she has at least some
inkling of what has happened. “Everything alright?”
“I am afraid I must excuse
myself,” is all he says and then he’s abusing his high security clearance to
disapparate out of the meeting room and into the living room of the flat he shares
with a certain Magizoologist. He finds the case atop their bed, a rather
nervous looking Dougal sitting on its top most step – peering out, waiting. The moment it sees him, it dips back into the
case; obviously aware of what Graves has come for. Graves follows him down in a
hurry, his feet flying down the rickety ladder, only to find that Newt is not
in his little shack.
Could you do a cute/angst almost one with Garfield Logan (Beast boy)?

Y/N!“ a classmates calls out from the front gate, "Your boyfriend’s
a group of students crowding around the front of the school. A common occurrence
at this time of day. Ever since Beast Boy started picking you up after school.
You first saw Beast Boy hanging around
Murakami High School a few months ago. He was sitting on a secluded bench,
staring at his hands. He looked so anguished that you couldn’t help your feet
from approaching him.
"You’re.. Beast Boy, right?“ Of course he was.
Everybody in Jump City knows the Teen Titans and there’s only one green boy

He didn’t look up at you. He continued to look down and
you noticed tear stains on his cheeks.
Joshua stared at the tile wall, eyes pink and swollen from all the tears. He lay in the ice cold water, his arms draped over your wilt body that rests on his chest. He was completely drenched from head to toe, but he couldn’t be bothered by that.
His throat felt dry as fuck from all the screaming.
Joshua begged you to come back to him. He begged and begged, desperately whispering sweet words into your ear as he held you in his arms. When that didn’t work, he tried tracing your soul.
He used up all his energy to summon your soul back to your body before you could reach the final destination.
Which Hogwarts house do you think each member would be in?
OH MAN I LOVE HOGWARTS AU!!!!!
this is how i see bts being sorted:
Namjoon and Jimin in Gryffindor
Jungkook and Yoongi in Slytherin
Jin in Ravenclaw
Taehyung and Hoseok in Hufflepuff
some extra stuff:
jimin plays seeker on the Gryffindor quidditch team while namjoon plays beater. jungkook is Slytherin’s seeker and jin plays chaser for Rravenclaw. Hoseok is Hufflepuff’s captain
yoongi’s amazing at defense against the dark arts.
taehyung has a natural talent for charms
Hoseok has a knack for transfiguration. Yoongi and him partner up in class and he suggests to hoseok he should transform into a horse as a joke. hoseok actually does it and yoongi can’t stop laughing (this is when they become friends)
yoongi and jimin meet in astronomy class, which they both suck at. they spend most of the class making up shit to please professor Aurora
Jin’s the Head Boy and Namjoon’s prefect
Taehyung becomes friends with Jungkook and Jimin when they’re all put in detention for failing potions (they had burned a hole through their shared cauldron)
Namjoon volunteers for Hagrid on weekends, helps to feed the beasts he keeps on the school grounds
Yoongi and Hoseok date for a year, during which jimin is devasted because he has a big crush on the Slytherin senior. but he’s good friends with hoseok through quidditch so he tries to be happy for them
Namjoon and Jin get to know each other through night patrol (since jin is head boy and nam is prefect, their shifts often cross paths). they wander the halls of hogwarts and become good friends over time
i feel like the driving force of the plot would be the return of the Dark Lord and BTS kinda teaming together to stop him? idk but I fuckin love HP so FUCK ME UP
Newt was back on the streets of London. After resting quite a bit and trying to lay low in case news of his adventures in America caught up to him, he was back doing what he did best - chasing his Niffler pell-mell through the streets of London in the dead of night.
He was trying to remain inconspicuous, but the looks that the few muggles on the streets were shooting at him was telling him that wasn’t possible. So he picked up the pace, whistling and calling out.
“Come on,” he whispered to himself, “you’ve got to be around here somewhere.”
He crouched down when he saw something shiny on the ground. It was a coin, beyond which were a few more coins scattered about in a sort of trail. Excited, he sprinted around the corner, his eyes lit up and coat billowing behind him.
“There you are, you little - oomph!”
He’d crashed into something, falling to the ground on top of something soft. His case was knocked out of his hands, his coat flew up over his head, and he grabbed whatever it was in front of him as tight as he could. When he opened his eyes, they were met by another’s. They weren’t a spectacularly unique color or anything, but they held a soft sparkle that, when illuminated by the nearby shop’s light, seemed to look like starlight.
“Oh, I- I’m so- so sorry!” He exclaimed, jumping off of the woman he’d landed on and offering a hand out to her.
“I-I’m Newt. Newt Scamander.”
She took his hand, letting him help her up off of the pavement. After brushing herself off, she smiled up at him.
“Hello Newt, Newt Scamader. I’m Y/n.”
Newt smiled a small, crooked grin as he looked into her eyes. He watched as she leaned down to retrieve something.
She held his case, her brow furrowing as she read the words ‘muggle worthy’ imprinted on a keyhole near one of the latches. She nearly gasped in realization. He was a wizard. She smiled to herself.
“Your case, Mr. Scamader?” She held it out for him to take.
“Please, call me Newt.” He took the case, inspecting the latches before holding it by his side.
He smiled at her again, the same lopsided grin and sparkling eyes taking her breath away, before he snapped out of whatever daze she’d put him in and leaped away.
“Oh! Oh my- I nearly forgot!” He mumbled to himself. He turned to the woman once again.
“I lost my- my d-dog. He’s s-small, resembles a - a platypus? Of sorts, and- and - well, have you seen a dog around here?” Newt managed to stutter out.
The woman laughed a bell-like laugh.
“A dog that resembles a platypus? Why no, I can’t say I have.”
Newt began to turn away.
“Oh. Well, thank you, and I’m so so sorry, again, for bumping into you, and I-″
She cut him off.
“I am, however, looking for a Niffler that stole my bracelet. Perhaps he’s yours?”
Newt stood, mouth open and eyes wide.
“I have a few of my own as well,” She smiled at him, They’re obnoxious, aren’t they? I’d put a location spell on yours, if I were you. He’s a tricky one.”
“I-I would, if - if he’d be in one p-place long enough for me to c-cast one.” He responded, a confused and shocked look still on his face.
“What, never seen a female wizard before?” She asked, her eyes sparkling with humor.
“I-I-” Newt stuttered.
“Well come on then!” She called, grabbing Newt’s wrist and pulling him along behind her.
“We’ve got a Niffler to catch!”
Newt opened the door to his flat, exhausting the last ounce of his energy trying to pull his keys from his pocket. Realizing he’d probably left them inside, he glanced around before taking out his wand.
“Alohomora” he whispered.
The door swung open, allowing him to stumble tiredly inside, before shutting the door closed and nearly collapsing against it.
He flopped down onto a couch nearby, setting his case opposite him. He ran a tired hand through his hair, sending a look towards his case.
“You’re a handful.” He’d been directing the words toward his Niffler, but realized that everything inside was just as tiring.
With a groan, he got up to begin feeding his beasts. He set his case down in the middle of the floor, before descending into it.
It had probably been a few hours. He didn’t really know how long it had been, as time seemed to be nonexistent in his little world.
He heard a voice.
He stopped talking to the Occamy in his hand, setting it down into its nest. He listened carefully, before hearing it again.
“Hello? I-Is someone there?” He pulled his wand out, holding it in front of him in case he’d need to use it to protect himself.
The voice seemed too distant to be in his case, so he walked slowly towards the stairs.
He opened the trapdoor carefully, peaking only the top of his head and eyes out to see who could possibly be in his flat.
It was her.
She was wearing less; her coat was gone and her shoes were different. Her hair was wild and she was shifting around anxiously, but it was still Y/n.
“Newt?” She called again.
Newt began to climb out of his case.
“Oh!” she jumped in surprise, “hello.”
Newt, once standing out of his case, turned to her with a confused look.
“Y/n? What are you doing - how- how are you here?” He asked, pocketing his wand.
“I’m so sorry for intruding. Apparated.” Her eyes shifted around the room frantically.
Newt, however confused, nodded in understanding.
“Why?” He asked.
“My Leaflet,” she said urgently.
“I’m sorry?” He asked, his brow furrowing.
“Sorry. I have a Bowtruckle that I carry everywhere - attachment issues, it’s not uncommon for the youngest Bowtruckle in a group - and she’s not in my coat and I couldn’t find her anywhere and I thought maybe she got confused when we bumped into each other and maybe you have her and I’m so sorry but I’m worried sick-”
“Hey,” Newt said, placing a gentle hand on her shoulder to calm her down, “I haven’t seen her, but I’ll look in my coat, shall I? Follow me.”
It was Newt’s turn to carefully take her wrist, leading her down into the case.
Newt’s workshop in his case was crowded with more than one person, but he tried to keep a socially acceptable distance away from her while he searched through his coat pockets.
“Here’s one,” he mumbled, pulling Pickett out from his breast pocket.
“Pickett, have you seen another Bowtruckle around? Her mummy is here, and she’s dreadfully worried.” Newt spoke to the Bowtruckle slowly.
Pickett seemed to look towards the woman, who was standing in the corner and biting her nails.
Pickett pointed towards Newt’s pocket.
Newt turned to Y/n.
“Can you hold him while I find your Leaflet?” He asked, presenting the Bowtruckle to her.
She nodded, smiling softly, as she took Pickett.
“Hello, Pickett, is it?” She asked as Newt began to search for Leaflet.
After a few moments, he held out his hand. Leaflet sat perched on his palm, reaching out to her owner.
“Oh, Leaflet! You’re a naughty one, aren’t you?” She asked, taking her Bowtruckle carefully from Newt.
Both watched seriously at Pickett greeted Leaflet by giving her a strange hug-like embrace.
“I haven’t seen that before.” Newt whispered, looking up at Y/n.
“Neither have I.” She smiled, returning the eye contact.
“Looks like they’ve become attached to each other,” Newt whispered.
And both wizards would be lying if either said they hadn’t gotten attached to each other as well.
