Carl the Animator: “It’s a deep, complex, and fleshed-out love story, conveyed entirely in 5 derps.”
Ted the Animator: “A classic tale. Boy discovers Mr. Hyde tied him up, boy is worried, boy finds that three-inch green chin is growing on him, boy searches his feelings, boy realizes he wants to be Mr. Mr. Hyde.”
Carl the Animator: “…was that all a setup for that one joke at the end?”
Ted the Animator: “Yes, and I’m darn proud of it.”
PROMPT: Smol spider having crush at Peter leaving him gifts and trying to woo him even tho they logically cant be together. Leaving him cute web messages and flowers. (Also imagine Wade getting jealous of a cute smol spider)
Random Gift for my friend @ghost-oakes of their Genny (who is like…the hottest clown in town I SWEAR TO GOD) My little guy Blinky is just photobombing the gift because HE HAS TO BE IN EVERYTHING, hasn’t he?! GET OUT OF THE WAY YOU DROOLING DERP!
I’m rewatching Riverdale S1 and it’s genuinely painful to see what Betty goes through re: Archie and infuriating to see how he responds to her getting over him.
This is a girl who has pined for the boy next door since she was a child. She tells him something deeply sweet, and intimate, that she has this fantasy of them as a couple. It’s not something that’s easy to say – especially for a girl like Betty who is consistently drowning in good girl expectations.
She doubts that he feels the same for her, she clearly struggles with self-esteem, but she goes for it. She tells him. And the night she takes the plunge, just in that one night alone, he’s too busy trying to get his hands on two other women to even see it coming.
Betty doesn’t even register to Archie when she’s telling him he can have her, she wants him to have her, she wants to have him. Then, he just takes her claim that she’s fine, already over his rebuff of her romantic feelings, which, dude, Archie, how stupid can you be? He dismisses her concerns and ignores her advice and instinct re: Grundy even though she’s known him basically his whole life. He’s so involved in his own stuff that he has no idea what she’s going through with Polly, and her parents, and her crumbling mental health.
He takes her for granted, in every single way a person can take someone for granted, throughout the entire season. It’s not until he can’t have her, until he sees how head over heels she is for Jughead, that he sees her.
I know some people love the “don’t know what you got ‘til it’s gone” trope but I hate it, I always have and I especially hate this potential incarnation of it.
Because on top of Archie being an idiot, there’s Jughead. Who knows Betty well enough even before we’ve seen them interact to tell Archie to get his head out of his ass and go talk to her if he wants to fix things. Who values her opinion so much that he goes with her pick for the drive-in’s last screening. Who trusts her enough to join the school paper at her request even though he’s obviously reluctant to get involved in, well, anything. Who senses that she needs support on multiple occasions and seeks her out to provide it - when he is going through some seriously dysfunctional shit of his own, mind you - not like “Oh I love girls and football and music all at the same time this is hard” dysfunction but “My home life is a nightmare and I live in the janitor’s closet” dysfunction. Who opens up to her, who gives her a safe place to open up, too. Who is passionate about her – wants to kiss her, to touch her, to tell her how good and smart and strong she is. Who sees her every time.
Like there’s just no competition, even. It’s not a love triangle. It’s two people in a wonderfully healthy relationship and there’s Archie who derps on in at the 11th hour because he realized he missed out on something great. And I’ll be really, really frustrated if they actively pursue something that even resembles a triangle in S2 because there is nothing valuable in that story to tell, they’ll wind up sacrificing a really fantastic piece of character development for both Betty and Jughead for some ginger manpain and I’m not here for that.
GOT7 Reaction: Best Friends to Boyfriends (request)
So this post is in reference to this other reaction: GOT7 as your best friends. And… I know that I went a bit crazy with this post, but it was fun to do this reaction.
How he asked you out: You were over at the dorm and you and Mark were in the
middle of a BFF nap session while the rest of GOT7 spoke in the kitchen talking about
whether you guys were dating or not. (You weren’t but they weren’t convinced
that you guys were actually still “just friends”). That’s when the brave Bambam
snuck into the room, taking a picture of you snuggled into Mark’s neck with his
arm around you as a piece of evidence.
When you both woke up and went to get something
to eat, they all were there. Immediately, they all punched at you and interrogated you as they revealed the
incriminating photo Bambam took two hours earlier. “And you guys say you are
just friends. This doesn’t look like just friends to me!” Jackson stated.
both exchanged a look at each other, then Mark turned to everyone, “So what if
we are dating?” The rest of the members stayed quiet, not really knowing how to
answer the question. “That’s what I thought” he said as they all filed out of
“I just thought you guys were cute together.” Jackson pouted as he
walked past the two of you.
It was only after you two ate in his room that the
topic came up between the two of you. “So… I kind agree with Jackson… We do
look cute together.” You brought up “casually”.
When you said that, he knew now
was the right time to finally ask you. “Yeah, like c’mon look at us! So why don’t
we just go out? I mean like everyone already things we are, plus we practically
act like we are already.” he said trying to hide his nervousness.
Most dates between the two of you are casual,
the main point is that you guys get some time together.
Watching a movie at the
dorm = date,
Staying the night at your place = date,
Getting lunch together when
you both are free = date.
Don’t worry though, every so often the both of you
would make time to schedule a more serious date. Many times, he would even
surprise you by taking you to a really expensive restaurant where you have a chance to get all glammed up.
Tons of inside jokes between that two of you, like more than before if that is possible. Especially a lot of double meaning jokes…
One of the biggest reasons he is so in love with
you is just because he feels he can be his normal self with you. He constantly
tells you that you always make him feel like he is home.
Time outside is always fun for the two of you.
It consists of things like volleyball, basketball, skating, playing with coco
or him teaching you how to do flips.
Couple outfits aren’t his style. He only goes
along with it when you beg him. But he does compromise by getting you guys matching
necklaces/bracelet/rings, which he promises to never take off.
He isn’t big on PDA either. For him the most he
would do in public is hold your hand or have his arm around your waist.
Now that you are together, you don’t secretly
steal his sweaters; now you declare them as your own, only returning them so that they can smell like him again. He is completely fine with it though, he
loves that you love them and he thinks you look cute wearing his sweaters.
When it comes to attention, you still have to
fight between Jackson and Coco, nothing would ever change on that.
Now, when it comes to arguing, he is a whole new
Mark. Even though he is a go-with-the-flow guy… when he is mad, he is MAD. He is
like a volcano that just explodes. And after his outbursts he gets into a
silent treatment. He can go days without talking to you when he is in that type
of mood. However, even though he gives you the silent treatment, he won’t be a complete
jerk. He would still do his part around the house or give you a glass of water if you ask or assist you with something… he would just be extremely silent and
not even open his mouth. On top of it all, he will take the longest time to
apologize to you or admit that he was wrong.
You steal his phone a lot and fill it with
your selfies. Many of the selfies you took, you took with him as he slept or they
are selfies of you and coco. As revenge he will use your derp face selfies as
his lock screen.
· How he asked you out:You rushed over to your door at almost midnight to see who was frantically knocking in your door. You peeked out the peep hole and saw JB standing there.
“Jb, what are you doing here?” you asked as you opened the door. Immediately you were concerned when you saw him breathing heavily. “Did you run over here? Is everything okay? What happened?”
“Y/n! Hi, So um- ok- wait- I need to catch my breathe.” He took a moment, then he looked at you., “Ok….uh.” that’s when his face blushed more. “So for the last few days you have been complaining about that guy you have been seeing and I am tired of hearing it. I don’t think you should be with him.”
“I know that I said you should wait things out, but he isn’t worth it! You deserve a better guy! A guy like me… Y/n, I’ve liked you for a long time and I hate the way you let guys treat you, you deserve so much and I hate it when you give thse assholes a chance because I am be so much better for you- and I… just… I do-don’t know what I’m trying to s-say anymore.” he faded off
You could feel your face heat up. “So you like me?”
“Are you asking me out?”
“I think so.”
There is no way around it, at one point or
another, you guys are going to adopt at least one cat together
Now that he and you are “practically one”, you
were promoted from second in command, to
“JB #2” when he isn’t around. Jinyoung may be a bit salty about it, but
he will get over it. (low key you still have to look over JB too, nothing changed
in that aspect)
Before, when you were just friends, you would
always catch him making stupid face at you… but now that you guys are together
you get a whole new set of looks from him 😉
He is a cuddle monster. He loves to use you as
his personal pillow when you guys are laying down together. Most nights he can’t
even fall asleep unless he is on top of you. He especially loves it when he
rests on your chest and you run your fingers through his hair, Those moments
are his paradise.
Now that you two are together, he might let himself
go just a small bit. You are always making him food or you guys are always
going out to try new places to eat or he uses his work out time to be with you
instead. On top of it all you love his tummy, so he doesn’t feel the need to
try as hard to work out like he used to.
He genuinely loves calling you by pet names…
like embarrassing ones like: honey bunny, cupcake, cutie patootie, baby doll,
honey bun, honey bunch, princess, Shnookums, etc. and you love how cheesy he
is. However, he would die if the rest of GOT7 ever heard him calling you any of
this. In front of them he only calls you babe or jagi. Sometimes he will try to
whisper the cuter (cringier) names in your ear or whisper it through the phone,
cuz he just won’t feel right if he doesn’t tell you something cute at least
once. The second anyone even thinks they hear him say those cute things, he
gets defensive with them and gets after them as a way to change the subject.
When it comes to PDA, he on the same level as
the pet names. He is all for the cute stuff with you like eskimo kisses and a
face full of pecks, but in public he tries to play things cool. He has to be “chic
and sexy” as Jackson always says.
Because he has so much on his plate on, being in
charge of six other guys and all, he is prone to forgetting dates like you birthday
or anniversary, or his birthday, his mom’s birthday… just everyone’s important dates. Part of your job as his “wonderful, loving other half” is to constantly
remind him of things not Got7 related that are coming up in his life. Of course
you don’t mind, anything to get less stress of him.
When he does forget your anniversary or
birthday, he feels so guilty. To make up for it, he will schedule time that is
meant just for the two of you to go out on a nice date, anywhere you want to go
and anything you want to do.
Going back to the whole stress thing… when he
gets stressed, he gets frustrated… and when he get frustrated he gets snappy
at anyone and everyone. When you were only besties, his little outbursts were
kinda funny, but now they aren’t because they are sometimes directed at you. It wasn’t something you liked, so it was something he constantly tried to work on.
Sometimes he catches himself and other times he doesn’t.
He holds grudges. “OH SO I CAN’T SNAP AT YOU WHEN
I AM FRUSTRATED, BUT YOU CAN LASH OUT ON ME JUST CUZ YOU HAD A BAD DAY!” This
guy keeps score of everything and knows what to throw back in your face. He will be like Mark in that, after an
argument he will go into silent mode and go days without talking. Unlike Mark
though, he might not even acknowledge you when he is giving you a silent
treatment, depending on the severity of the fight.
At the end of the day, he is just a passionate
guy and he puts so much of himself in whatever mood he is in. No matter how
much he gets mad, that won’t take away from the fact that he loves you too much
to ever risk losing you.
When it comes to couples outfits… All I have to
say is that you have to come up with looks that work with bucket hats
asked you out: It was in the middle of your famous Harry Potter marathons
that he decided to ask you out. He liked you for a long time and he always
wanted to ask you, but he was always scared of ruining things with you. But it
was on that day where things just felt so perfect. It was just you and him at
your place and you were just watching the movie all comfortable and cute,
resting your feet on his, every so often throwing popcorn at him to playfully
annoy him and give him that beautiful smile of yours. That was when, he was
willing to risk asking you out if it meant there was a possibility of having
more moments like this. That was when he said “Y/n, you know you are a lot like
Ron and I am a lot like Hermione.”
You had confused his comment as an insult
and threw a pillow at him, “Are you calling me dumb?”.
He just laughed and
said, “No! What I was trying to say is that we are meant to be!”
He is more of a romantic compared to many other
guys. He is really cute in the sense that he would write you little love poems
and leave around little notes for you to find. Not to forget he would quote
romantic lines from some books the two of you love.
He loves days where the both of you get to sleep
in. They are rare so the both of you take advantage and make an event of it
with a big breakfast where both of you cook together.
For sure he is the type to take part in couple
outfits. But more so the sophisticated looks, the whole coffee shop aesthetic.
Don’t get me wrong, he would still be big on matching pajamas to wear around the
Just because you guys are a couple now doesn’t mean
he will completely stop being savage with you. Any time you make a dorky
comment or get too annoying with the others, he would just stare at you and
shake his head. He would probably also mumble “Why am I dating you?” under his
breath, but on the inside, he finds everything you do to be cute and added to
what he loved about you.
In the relationship, he is the one that would for
sure remember your anniversary and your birthday and another other important
dates or events that revolve around you (and he would love to brag about it and
guilt trip you the few times you would forget).
He is the type to not want to talk about work at
home. Just thinking about his schedule is tiring, so he hates talking about it
when you ask. It is part of his policy to “not bring work home”, so when
he is with you he just wants to relish in the normalcy.
You both still stick to coffee dates and going
out and having fun and all, but when it is just the two of you at home, those
are his favorite moments. He loves it when you two are sprawled on the couch watching
movies or reading and you are just playing with his hair.
When around the other members or out in public,
he isn’t one for PDA. Holding hand would be the biggest sign of affection when
out and about.
He is the type of boyfriend that always denied
being the jealous type, but it was obvious he was. You would notice it when you
hugged a guy friend “too long” or something and he would have a mini silent
treatment or he would be a bit sassier than normal… maybe even say a passive aggressive
comment here or there.
When it comes to arguments, he would be the more
leveled headed one, but when he was too fumed, his words can hurt. He knows exactly
what to say to press your buttons. But, when he knew he was in the wrong or
that he took things too far, he would be quick to apologize to you and try to
make up for it.
How he asked you out:For weeks you had been bugging him to tell you about his girl he had a crush on. He was the type to tell you everything, but he refused to tell you about this, mysterious girl. “Jackson, I am your best friend, and as your best friend, I have to know who you like. I have to approve of them.” to be honest, you were just jealous that he never seems to stop talking about that girl, you just wanted to finally know what the hype was about. You really liked Jackson, but as his friend you wanted him happy.
“Ok fine… I’ll show you who she is.” He smirked. “But that means you have to come with me to the gym. She is there every so often and I know she is going to be there today. In the evening is the time I always see here there.”
“Really? I’ve gone with you at those times, have I seen her before?”
He didn’t answer, he just forced you to your gym clothes and dragged you to the gym you had been to only a few times before. Immediately you looked out for every girl there, but each one you pointed out, he only said no.
“Jackson, you made me do a whole workout with you, but you never even told me who this girl is! I thought you said shewas going to be here. I want to know.’ you whined.
That’s when he guided you over to the mirrors where the light weights are. This is where many of the girls hung out, so she had to be there! “She is right here! “ he said even thought there was no one else there.
“Where? Why are are you making me look at myself?” You asked as he place you in front of the mirror.
“Cuz, the girl I like is you.”
· Jackson encourages a healthy lifestyle together. “We
have to eat organic!” “Monday can be our cheat day.” “A couple that works out
together stays together.”
You always ask him if he loves you as much/more
than his mom and every time he avoids giving an answer. “Oh hey it’s time for
practice I have to go!”
“Jackson you just got back”
“Love you bye!”
Since he doesn’t always have a lot of free time
in his schedule, he does the best he can to be with you or at least talk to
you. He always texts/calls you when he is free, and when he is away on tour he
makes it a point to video chat you.
He always fantasizes about your future together. He
was the first to bring up marriage and how many kids you would have.
He was also the one to say “I love you first”.
He said it within a week of you two dating
Gets jealous over the smallest things “Why did
you hug Jinyoung before me?!?”
“Babe, I saw him first cuz he opened the door
and let me in.”
“I knew it, you love him more than me!”
This guy would never ever not touch you. No
matter what, he has to be touching you in one way or another. Holding you,
holding your hand, playing with your hair. Even when just standing next to each
other, his elbow has to at least touch yours. Therefore, when it comes to PDA,
he does not shy away from it.
· He likes to spoil you. Part of it is an attempt to make up for the fact he is gone a lot, but it is
mostly because he feels you deserve so much and he wants to be the one to
provide for you.
He is a bit more needy than when you two were
just friends. He goes to you when he is stressed with everything or when the
online hate is too much.
He takes you to Hong Kong so that you could meet
his parents. No matter how much he loves you, he wants to make sure his
parents approve of you
There are many times where the two of you get into
arguments over his schedule. You feel he is working too hard and he feels he
isn’t working hard enough.
Arguments in general are never fun, and it
doesn’t help that he is pretty stubborn. However after a while is he willing to budge
and see things from your point of view then you both are able to sort things out
Actively plans out couple outfits with you. He even
suggests you take turns being “in charge” of the outfits. “Babe, last week you
chose out look, this week I get to choose!”
· How he asked you out:The two of you were walking in the park to take Coco out for a walk. It was a nice day out. There was a cool breeze in the air and there was almost no one else in the park, allowing you and Youngjae act as yourselves.
“Thanks for letting me use your sweater Youngaje.” You felt your face geting warmer as you tugged played the sleeves.
“You’re welcome.” he smiled.
“Coco looks really cute in that little sweater you bought her…”
“And you look really cute in my sweater.” he said ever so softly
“No I heard you say something!”
“I didn’t say anything!”
“You did! I heard you!”
You saw his face turning red. “Nuh-uh!”
“Stop lying! You said something! I know you Youngjae. You might as well tell me now, before I go through desperate means to find out!” you threatened.
“Fine… but if I tell you… You have to go on a date with me.”
He has you under “Coco’s step mom <3” in his
contacts. Aside from that, he only ever calls you love, honey, babe, darling,
baby, jagi… any cute pet name in the book, he will call you that. On top of
that, he almost always has a sunshine smile on his face when he calls out to
It melts his heart when you call him by pet
Don’t get me wrong though, he may be a cute boyfriend,
but he is not as innocent as he seems so 😉
He loves playing video games with you, even taking
the time to teach you how to play a game with him if you don’t know how.
His phone is filled with pictures of you. A lot of
them he took without you knowing. You are even his phone lock screen and home
He isn’t big on PDA, but he doesn’t hate it. So
there is a lot of hand holding and holding you by your waist, and a bit of back
hugs or small pecks on the cheek.
He loves it when you are the big spoon when you
both are cuddling.
He hates to admit it, but he is low-key excited
whenever you bring up the idea of couple outfits. He is subtle in how he
suggests that you guys go as far as wearing certain hats or shoes.
Sometimes he gets you little gifts for no
reason. He will just be out doing his thing
and he will see something that reminds him of you and he just has to buy
it so that he can give it to you. Many times these types of gifts are little
plushies. “They are so cute just like you baby!”
He serenades you with loves songs. He just wants
to make you feel special and in what better way than through song!
You are his muse to his solo songs… well you
were his muse when you both were just
friends but now it isn’t a secret that the songs are about you.
Compared to the other members, he is not the type
to get that mad. Sure he is will get upset, but he rarely raises his voice. He
isn’t one to stay mad for long either. Unless it is something serious, his
emotions will die down throughout the day and by night time the both of you go
to bed as if you never fought in the first place.
· How he asked you out:You let him in as you finished getting ready to g out with him to the movies for your secret late night hang outs. “Hey Bestie!” he said as he walked in.
Bestie. That was what he kept referring to you as ever since Yugyeom accused the two of you of dating when he found the two of you cuddling on the couch. You hated it because you hated to be reminded that he only saw you as a friend.
“Hi to you too bestie” you forced yourself to say.
“You’re looking hot tonight.” he smirked
“Well, I gotta match my style to yours.” you winked playfully.
“You don’t have to try that hard to do that… But then again some times you do have to try hard. Liked the other day when you were a complete zombie.”
“Hey! I was sick! You’re so mean. I thought you were my bestie.”
“Well. I am… But I don;t want to anymore.” he said more seriously.
Your face fell. “What?”
“He smiled at you. “Yeah, can’t we change that whole “bestie” title to “best boyfriend” or something? That just rolls off the tongue better.”
It doesn’t matter that you guy have been dating
for a month, six months, or a year, no matter how long you guys have been
together he is still going to flirt with you.
Dirty jokes back and forth between the two of
you that end up annoying everyone else.
And just because you guys are dating, it doesn’t
make Yugyeom any less of his “best-er friend”. That is right, you will still
have to fight for your boyfriend’s attention when Yugyeom is around.
Still keep strong to the tradition of late night
video chats, but now that you guys are dating, they usually end up 19+…
On that note, he still spams you with selfies…
You are his second hype man for everything he
Him: *flips water bottle* *shrugs as if he didn’t put 110% of his
effort into it*
You: *dabs behind him*
For sure he is going to bring you along to
Thailand whenever he gets to go. He was you around his family and he want to
take you around where he grew up. He wants you to love it as much as he does.
This boi got to be at the top of the trending
game, so know that you guys are dating you have to be as cool as him. He still makes
you learn new memes or dances with him, but this time he makes sure you get
them as perfect as he does.
He is so into the idea of couple outfits. But you guys aren’t basic, far from that.
When it comes to outfits you guys gotta be fab, nothing less that model level
When it comes to you, “Nothing but the best for
my queen” (yes, that means you have to refer to him as your king).
This boy loves to spoil you. He will get you the
best of everything. Top brand clothes, shoes, make up, skin care, almost
everything no matter how much you insist that he doesn’t have to. But just because
he is so generous with you, doesn’t mean he gets anything for his members. He
still “forgets” his wallet every so often when they are all out eating.
He is not afraid of PDA, especially around GOT7 because
he loves to show everyone that you are his.
When it comes to arguments, he doesn’t really
get too upset. He isn’t one to take a lot of things seriously so if anything,
you are the one that gets more upset between the two of you… and sometimes his
lack of seriousness is what makes you upset. But sometimes it takes a bit of “conversation”
to get things straightened out between the two of you and things so back
· How he asked you out:You awkwardly woke up after a sleep over with Yugyeom to find a sheet of paper taped over your whole face.
“ What the-” you grumbled as you took it off. On the paper it as the last thing you ever expected to read. It was a note from Yugyeom saying “Hey Y/n, I know this is weird… I didn’t really know how to say this in person, but it is something that I’ve wanted you to know for a while. I really like you… like more than a friend. I don’t know if you feel the same way, but if you do, please meet me by our favorite spot by the river at 10 pm tonight, the spot where we first met. If you don’t go I’ll take it as sign you don’t feel the same for me, which is completely fine by me. I just wanted to let you know how I really felt.”
Instantly you broke out into a smile. You were so happy that he liked you back You had liked him for months now and you felt like you were on top of the world, but part of you was wondering if this was actually real. You tried to call and text him, but he never replied. That whole day you were in a daze as you mentally prepared yourself to meet up at the river.
When the time actually came by, you were running late. At 10:15 you ran off the bus and sprinted to the exact spot he was talking about. Within a few feet from the spot, you caught Yugyeom slouching form with six frowning boys around him. He barely held on to a boquet of flowers as Jackson ans Youngjae walked away with what looked like a basket and blanket for a picnic. Immediately, you screamed out for him as you ran to him. He turned around, his frown quickly turned into a smile as you threw yourself on him.
· Him teasing you is never going to end, even with
you guys dating. If anything it is only going to happen way more since you guy
can see each other way more. All this teasing just evolves into a prank war between the two of you, which late has
to get settled out by Jinyoung because you guys took things way too far and
trashed the dorm.
This won’t stop the teasing though. He just loves
to do it, that is one of the ways he shows you affections “If I don’t annoy
you then I don’t love you” he would say as he continued to poke your cheek like
he was been for the past ten minutes.
For sure, he is still going to drag you to the dance
studio with him, this time he will get you to dance with him *cough* dirty
· He is super shy about the idea of pda. He would
avoid it as much as possible. Since everyone in got7 still sees him as a baby
even though he is taller than everyone, they will always coo “Aww look at
little Yugyeom with his little girlfriend!” Avoiding pda means avoiding all
Yugyeom would be the sweetest in how he would celebrate
your anniversary. He would go all out with the scavenger hunt ideas. He would
have so many clues for you to follow and lead you all over the city only to end
up in the spot where you both has your first date.
He is different when it comes to arguments, at
least for the first few months or so. Most of the time he is quick to assume
that he is at fault and immediately apologizes and tries to fix everything.
After a while and once both of you become more comfortable with each other,
then that’s when he’d takes a stand for his thoughts. Thanks fully, he wouldn’t
be the type to shut you out and he would listen to your side of everything and
you both go from·
Unlike before, he wouldn’t ditch you for Bambam.
Now that you both were dating, he rarely ever wanted to leave your side. He is
just a giant cuddle bug.
His phone is filled with pictures of the two of
you (mostly of derp faces).
He is cool with couples outfits. He just lets
you choose what you both get to wear he doesn’t care what the clothes are all
that matters is that is it something you both do together.
