the song say man and not person but i'm a girl so i changed it

anonymous asked:

tell us why perfect by ed sheeran is about phan

perfect is easily one of the most romantic ballads since thinking out loud and ed has even said that he views it an outperformance in comparison to thinking out loud, which is interesting in this context considering how relevant thinking out loud is to everyone who remembers what happened at the 2015 brit awards. it was quite an iconic moment and it’s something people still talk about, so it’s especially intriguing that the song perfect is directly connected to it and treated as somewhat of a sequel

it also happens to describe dan and phil’s history together from past to present very accurately

honestly, i don’t listen to ed sheeran’s music regularly and although the lyrics aren’t the deepest or the most unconventional, i’ve been itching to write down some thoughts

[listen to the song here to set the mood]

[Verse 1]

I found a love for me

Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead

Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet

Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

we’ll start right off with the first four lines in verse 1, which i believe are being sung from phil’s perspective (however, the perspectives are subjective and can change throughout the song) these lyrics mirror the start of dan and phil’s relationship. phil was generally more mature when him and dan first started talking, age wise and experience wise. phil could’ve technically been considered an adult while dan was still very young and inexperienced, hence why “Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead” is so fitting here. dan and phil were both very quick to love and didn’t think so much about the consequences of their decision to trust each other so quickly. phil quite literally invited dan to dive right in and follow his lead, professionally and personally. the last line can be used to describe just how unexpected it must’ve been for phil when dan came along. early on, dan’s main priority was waiting. waiting for phil’s responses on twitter. waiting for phil’s dm’s. waiting for phil’s texts. waiting for those 5 hour skype calls with phil. waiting to meet phil. only until later on did phil realize that dan was the someone for him

‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love

Not knowing what it was

I will not give you up this time

But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own

And in your eyes, you’re holding mine

in the second half of verse 1, the first two lines once again touch on dan and phil’s maturity levels when they first met, referring to them as kids. they behaved as kids would, acting silly and goofy with each other and relishing in each other’s youth, savoring the honeymoon stage as much as they could. but with being a kid comes immaturity, and that side of them showed through some of their reckless behavior. they treaded on thin ice while not knowing what was beneath it as boundaries or limits really didn’t exist for them in the early days of their relationship

[Chorus]

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath

But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

this is where the tenses change and the song switches its focus on what is happening in the present, unlike the two verses in the song which seem to be reminiscing on the early days of a relationship. the first two lines of the chorus describe the bond that dan and phil have now and the moments that they share together. dancing in the dark in each other’s arms and listening to their favorite song implies that it could be a song that holds a special meaning for both of them specifically or a song that they are both able to connect to and enjoy together as best friends/lovers/etc because it reminds them of each other. the plural pronoun choice in that second line is accurate considering dan and phil share pretty much everything

[Verse 2]

Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know

She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home

I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets

To carry love, to carry children of our own

the second line in this verse is probably the most important lines because the song directs its focus away from the present and jumps directly backwards into the past, treating the chorus almost like it was was a mere glimpse into the future. dan and phil quite literally shared each other’s dreams back in 2009, phil was a youtuber and dan was an aspiring one. and although they had no idea whether or not youtube would’ve become as massive of a platform as it is now, dan and phil still shared a lot of goals and also supported each other’s individual goals that the other might not have shared with them. so yes, technically they were still sharing each other’s dreams merely through mutual support regardless of whether or not both of them had those same exact dreams in mind. “I hope that someday I’ll share her home” is such a meaningful lyric because dan and phil never had any idea that they would’ve ever had the opportunity to move in with each other and change millions of people’s lives together. all they could hold onto at the time was hope. but that hope was so worth holding onto because now they’ve been sharing each other’s home for over 7 years, literally and metaphorically

the last two lines are pretty self explanatory. dan and phil know more about each other than anyone else does and some of the things that they feel comfortable sharing with each other are things that they wouldn’t feel comfortable sharing with anyone else. aside from secrets, they carry each other’s love, and even though they can’t literally “carry children,” they have created a family together. the meaning of family in this context is subjective, whether you want to consider it a family solely between the two of them or the family that they’ve made with their audience

We are still kids, but we’re so in love

Fighting against all odds

I know we’ll be alright this time

Darling, just hold my hand

Be my girl, I’ll be your man

I see my future in your eyes

once again there’s another tense shift. the lyrics are insinuating that the present relationship still has much room for growth but has remained very genuine, which is also true in dan and phil’s case because they are visibly growing with each day that passes. they are growing professionally and personally and the amount of that growth, even just recently, has been astronomical. they see their futures intertwined and they truly are so in love

as for that second line, read it and really let it sink in… “Fighting against all odds.” if dan and phil have done anything in their goddamn lives, it’s fighting all goddamn odds. the odds of phil’s replies to dan on twitter leading to dm’s, the odds of those dm’s leading to 5 hour skype calls, the odds of those skype calls eventually leading dan to buy a train ticket to piccadilly station and actually meet up with this man whom he had met online, the odds of them taking the biggest risk of their professional lives and moving in together in the heart of london so they could pursue a radio show that they had no idea would either pay off or go down in flames, the odds of them actually creating this life together, helping each other through their sudden rise to fame? the odds of them actually having the opportunity to create such a unique community and change people’s lives for the better? what dan and phil have is not what society would deem conventional, but they have beat every normative agenda out there and have literally defied all odds. there were so many potential setbacks… there were so many things that could’ve gone wrong… but they didn’t.

[Chorus 2]

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful

I don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

[Chorus 3]

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

I have faith in what I see

Now I know I have met an angel in person

And she looks perfect

I don’t deserve this

You look perfect tonight

these last two choruses are very similar to chorus 1 with a few minor lyrical changes

chorus 3 is a lot more confident and hopeful of the future, much like dan and phil seem to be at this current point in time. the view that they have of their future seems to be filled with such good things, like moving and adopting a dog and whatever other “life things” they might have in mind. but i think the most important thing to consider here is that their futures are so tightly bound to each other, and they have nothing but tremendous faith in each other. whatever their futures may hold, it holds them together

now end this analysis with a visual of dan and phil curled up together in phil’s bed, reminiscing on how all of this happened and just how lucky they are to have ended up in this current moment with each other

i’m not saying anything but… perfect is the perfect song for them

Comet is the only thing I care about if it doesn't win I'm gonna cry

Like. I can’t even explain it I’m too invested in this show. I’m going to infodump about it because I’m so sad that DEH might beat it out for the tony and it doesn’t even deserve to.

- the usher for my actual seat talked to me about DEH and I told her I loved it but it annoyed me when everyone kept saying ’ oh yeah it has 9 tony noms’ and I was like “ well… comet has 12!” And she laughed and we Bonded™
- did I mention I was alone for like the first hour I was in the theatre because I ran in at 7 without my mom and sister. They wanted to eat their food and I was like “NO COMET”
- I was hungry because I’d skipped dinner?? The comet gods threw food at me.
- The girl who talked to our section was the best. Also I was the only person who read war and peace in my section which made me feel Important™
- Natasha’s “NO!” When Andrey tells her he’s going off to war and prologue starts

- “I KNOW THEYLL LIKE ME!” *pause* “EVERYONE HAS ALWAYS LIKED ME!”
- getting stools into those tables took a little while but it was the best thing I ever saw.
- no one else was so powerful. It’s one of my favorite songs that I’ve like, ever heard, and Denee rocked it. Honestly the little things I noticed from her I applied to my singing it ( it’s a song I’m working on in vocal) and it helped so much. God bless Denee Benton.
- The opera was AWESOME. Gelsey again as opera singer made me die. Her voice is so strong and good and perfect.

-DENEE BENTON STRIPPING-ISH ON STAGE TO JUST A CORSET AND UNDERWEAR ( I’m sure she has a Leo under it)?? MY GAY LITTLE HEART DID NOT SURVIVE.

- the ball is so painful please Anatole no more

- Natasha gushing about how much she loves Anatole to the crowd makes me cry
- Pierre you gentle giant plz stop drinking
-that’s right Sonya. Roast her.

He said it was up to Denee to decide what she was comfortable with, and in the show it wasn’t there. ( I’m glad Denee stopped saying something she wasn’t okay with)
-oh Sonya nothing is your fault you little gerbil please calm down and realize you aren’t responsible for Natasha
-THE PLAN FOR NATALIE ROSTOVAS ABDUCTION HAD ALL BEEN-
- balaga is such a fun song. I didn’t get egg shakers but everyone who did seemed to have a good time!
- during the abduction when Anatole says not yet and pauses, Lucas draws it out a ton. One of the people next to me tried shaking her egg to get it started up again and he just looked at us and said “ no.”
-Natasha is so excited to go with him I hate it. Also the violin is amazing as it always is in that show.
- yOU WILL NOT WNTER MYYY HOUSE S C O UN D R E L.
- Denee runs up to what looks like a sink (?) and you can see her miming taking arsenic.
-Pierres reality check kills me. He’s been telling himself he’s worthless nothing matters and he probably hasn’t gone outside in a long time, and then someone’s asking for him for his friend.
-what?? whAt? WHAT???
- Anatole sobbing in Helene’s lap is good and terrible at the same time. She strokes his hair, and it makes me die.
- DRAG HIM PIERRE. THREATEN THE BAD MAN.
- when Anatole leaves Pierre and him throw his bag around for a bit.
- Natasha very ill is so sad I cried then
-in Andrey and Pierre, Andrey is so tired. He’s holding the letters with anger, like he doesn’t want to touch them anymore. It makes me upset because only about 25 songs ago he clutched them to his heart.
- when Andrey says ’ never speak of that’ he holds Pierre up on his tip toes by his shirt. On “ again” he punches Pierre in the chest and runs down to his fathers throne. He sits there and the tension never leaves him as he grips the arms of the chair. Mary tries to fret over him, but he waves her away.
- Natasha and Pierre is the saddest song too. Natasha is so small in her room plain, baggy white nightgown and no shoes. The emotions in that song are so high. Natasha climbs up the stairs as Pierre starts the “ if I were not myself” part of the song, and hesitates with each kind thing he says.
- Pierre stops after “I” and I think he only continues because he sees that Natasha has heard him and that she tenses at the word.
- “UNABLE TO FIND THE SLEEVES.”
- the comet is a good prop I love the comet #gayiconthecomet
- the stage door was so amazing. All the actors were the sweetest. I’m super terrible at names so I apologize if I just call someone their character name.
-Paul Pinto came out and instead of saying “ I loved your performance and my friends did as well” I said “ my friends love you and told me to say hi” he looked a little hurt and said “oh, well tell your friends I said hi, I guess.” I have hurt the best man on this planet and I can never make it up
- I told the guy who plays dolokhov that he was amazing and I cried very hard and he said “ oh well that’s what we always want, isn’t it?”
- PEARL ( an ensemble member) SIGNS IN PURPLE. I ASKED HER WHY SHE SAID IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO BE DIFFERENT SO I WOULD REMEMBER HER.
- josh came out even though he had somewhere to be. He went to the end of the line and worked his way up.
- josh has the kindest eyes, he could stab me and I would apologize for getting blood on his knife. He also has a baby face and a beanie. I love him.

There’s more, like a lot about the set so if you want to hear me infodump about comet please let me know kids

Traffic

The Ignition fic that no one asked for but that I needed to write because damn. That video has ended me. Enjoy!
@strongenoughfoundation sorry, I had to tag you again, that video has done things to both of us XD

It was too hot, too loud, and the traffic was too AWFUL.

You’d been sitting in this car for God knew how long now, on a packed highway in the summer heat. Every window was rolled down in an attempt to fight off a heatstroke and honestly, you’d started counting the minutes until your sure death if you didn’t get off this road soon. Groaning in despair, you snatched the hair tie from your wrist and tied your hair back in sharp motions.

At the sound of your voice, your best friend glanced at you from the driver’s seat, eyebrows raised. “You all right over there?”

“I’m dying, Lin,” you deadpanned. “I am actually dying.”

“That’s a little dramatic,” he remarked, a teasing smile tugging at his lips.

“This damn highway is doing dangerous things to my head.”

“Wow.”

“I imagine death so much, it feels more like a memory.”

At that, he burst out laughing. With a hand resting on the steering wheel, he leaned back against his seat and sent you a warm glance. “I feel like I can’t argue with you because you just did that.”

Flopping back against your seat with a loud sigh, you pointed at him. “That line is the one I relate to the most, honestly,” you told him wryly.

“Why am I not surprised?” he asked.

You lifted your head and arched a brow at him. “Are you saying I’m a negative person?”

“You said it, not me.”


“I feel the need to remind you that you’re stuck in this car with me for at least an hour.”

“I feel the need to remind YOU that this is my car and I can kick you out at anytime.”

Grumbling, you shifted around in your seat to get to a more comfortable position and brought your feet up onto the edge of it. “Asshole,” you muttered simply and he snickered. You wondered if walking was a better choice than this traffic-induced hell after all.

Sighing in resignation, you settled for dozing in the searing sun and sneaking a couple glances over at Lin as you did. Hey, you couldn’t help it if your best friend also happened to be kinda (really) attractive, could you? It wasn’t bad just to look, right? You idly studied him through half-closed eyes, admiring the way his hair got all tousled as he ran a hand through it. He was wearing a dark blue tee because of the heat and you tried to steal a few guilty glances at his arms. You bet it’d be nice to be wrapped up in his arms, heat or no heat.

“…you done staring at me yet?”

“Shit!” you hissed, blushing furiously at having been caught. Lin cast you a sideways glance that was wayyyy too knowing and was that jerk SMIRKING? Growling something unintelligible, you reached forward to the dashboard. “I’m putting the radio on!” you announced.

“Hey, I don’t mind, you can look all you want—”

“I’M PUTTING THE RADIO ON.” You jabbed at the power button and cranked up the volume.

The first few notes of a song blared out and you recognized it at the same time Lin did.

You groaned out a frustrated “NOOO,” while Lin practically cheered like a two-year-old.

“I’m turning it off!” you said at once, and you reached for the button again.

“No you aren’t!” he shot back, batting your hand away. He ignored your squeak of protest and flashed you a wide grin. “You turned it on, so you’re stuck with the consequences!”

Sinking down in your seat, you brought your fingers up to your temples. The lyrics to the “Ignition” remix pumped out of the speakers and brought back a ton of memories. “Lin-Manuel Miranda,” you stated, “if you start rapping, I swear to God—”

“No, I’m not tryin’ to be rude, but hey pretty girl, I’m feelin’ you, the way you do the things you do, remind of my Lexus coup—”

“AAAGHHH!” You threw your hands up as he started freaking dancing in his damn seat, one hand still on the wheel and other in the air, and dear lord, it was like PTSD. Hands over your ears now, you glowered at him from your hunched over position. Lin just smiled back like the stupid, hot person he was and pointed at you as he went on with the song:

“So baby, give me that!”

“No.”

“Let me give you that!”

“HELL NO. Lin, I swear, I will never speak to you again.”

Cheerfully ignoring you, he kept going, letting that edge of a growl into his voice and you internally swooned. Why did these things happen to you? “It’s the remix to ignition, hot and fresh out the kitchen, Mama rollin’ that body, got every man in here wishin'—”

He cut off, making you glance over in confusion; just in time for him to lean across and steal a kiss, lips pressed to yours fleetingly. Your eyes shot open wide, body going rigid as he grinned into your mouth and then pulled away a second later.

“Lin!” you spluttered out, as he just laughed and went back to rapping out the lyrics. “What—You—What the hell!?”

The lyrics became a little shaky as he tried not to laugh, a stupid smile on his face. When he glanced at you, his eyes softened and…was he blushing?

Against your will, your mouth quirked up too and you looked down at your feet.

As the two of you sat, with the speakers blasting around you, you brought your fingers up to touch your lips in wonder.

My Lady Gaga Theory

This is something that is on my mind since Lady Gaga released her new video clip, John Wayne, and I just want to write it down so I won’t forget.


So, everyone knows that all the clips she released from Joanne are connected to which other. They all start were the last one finished. But John Wayne looks quite different from Perfect Illusion and Million Reasons… The clip reminds me of old Gaga videos, with a frantic pace and lots of color. So how does this one connect with the others? I read a comment saying the Gaga realized that the first videos were not good and decided that it was time to go back to what she did before. Not only I don’t agree with this (to me, Joanne is more mature than her previous albums) I also think this is bullshit. There’s no way Gaga didn’t know what she was doing. This is not a random change of pace.


In July 2016, Gaga and Taylor Kinney ended their 5 year relationship. In September, she released Joanne’s first single, Perfect Illusion. The song talks about a heartbreak, about a relationship that wasn’t as good as the song’s character thought it was. The videoclipe shows Gaga in a sort of journey, trying to deal with her new situation and trying to understand what went wrong. She dances with strangers and runs in desert, as if she was lost.



Then, she released Million Reason (to me, the best song in the album). This song is about a person trying to rebuild a broken relationship; she begs for a reason to stay even though she knows it’s not a great relationship. The clip is very melancholic and she seems, again, very lonely. She’s trying everything she cans to bring him back, but she knows is all in vain.



John Wayne, like I said before, is frenetic. It starts with Gaga talking in a calm tone that becomes a shout. She rides horses and motorbikes; she hurts herself without noticing or caring about it; she gets a ride with a stranger and runs over a dog; she shoots a gun; she kills herself. She’s angry and she says “I crave a real wild man” because every guy she knows is “just the same”. In the end, everything is just a day dream.



So, this is my theory: Lady Gaga will release 7 video clips, each one representing a stage of grief. We already have Perfect Illusion as SHOCK, with Gaga trying to cope it the break-up; Million Reason as DENIAL, with her trying in vain to save something that is already dead; and John Wayne as ANGER, for obvious reasons.


After that, we have BARGAINING, GUILT, DEPRESSION and ACCEPTANCE. I think Dancin’ in Circles will be the next video, since it talks about masturbating to fill a void someone left in our lives. Maybe this is the way she found to keep him next to her. Or maybe Sinner’s Prayer, which also can be GUILT. I think Just Another Day could be ACCEPTANCE and Hey Girl DEPRESSION.



Ok, so this is it. My theory that doesn’t change the world. I wrote it because I didn’t saw anyone talking about this and what I read was quite stupid, so that’s it. Sorry for my English :)

Disney Movies

A/N: I don’t have a good explanation for this. I truly don’t. Forgive me, it’s 3 am and I wrote this in a single day and I know I have soulmates and a few other requests and fics to tend to. I’m too inconstant. I’m a big kid, what can you do?

  • Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

The Lion King! I’m sure Simba’s history and the talk about “who you are” would touch Altaïr’s apparently “cold and stoic” heart — but you know him well enough to tell apart the truth and what he tells others. He knows most of quotes and secretly memorized “The Circle of Life” accidentally, even though you could swear his favorite song was “Just Can’t Wait to Be King” — you found out when you woke up one morning and Altaïr was in the kitchen, brewing coffee and humming the song while he watched the steam rise up with a distant look. The movie has kinda turned into a comfort animation he turns to every once in a while just to keep the memory of the feeling he had when Simba climbed the rock and roared to claim his place as the king.

Seeing Their Ideal Type At A Concert

Requested by anonymous- Also, I’m sorry if it’s dumb and horrible and not what you were looking for. I’ve never done one of these before. I did some looking around and made this to the best of my abilities. I’m pretty sure I wrote these longer than most of the reactions I’ve seen, and less open ended and more story like, but that’s just how I roll. They kinda ended up almost more like mini drabbles lol. Scenarios? Whatever. Also, I felt incredibly cheesy writing these. So much cheese.

He thinks you are so pretty, and practically falls in love with your smile. He’s thrilled to see that you’re here for him when he notices your shirt with his face. He sends you finger hearts and his signature sun smile. He see’s that you and your friends are keeping up with even the more complicated dances, and notices by your movements that there is no way you are not a dancer. Suddenly this boy who was born extra, becomes extra X9000. Tongue is out, hips are thrusting, and he’s spending as much time on your side of the stage as possible. Unbeknownst to you, his whole performance has become about making you smile as much as possible. He catches the flower crown you throw onstage and wears it for the rest of the concert. As he leaves the stage at the end of the night, he makes a mental note to take a selca with the crown in the hopes that he’d see you comment.

Yoongi’s stage presence is well known for being powerful and charismatic. So it was no surprise to you that your eyes kept being drawn to him again and again. What did surprise you was the feeling that he was actually looking right back. Several times he come over and did his lines while looking right into your eyes, and holy shit, was that a smirk? You tried not to get excited, knowing full well it was most likely fan service. What you didn’t know, however, was that he was just LOVING how into the music you were. You even kept up with his rap lines. He could see by your blush that you knew the grin was for you, so he decided to have fun teasing you for the rest of the night. Just when he thought you couldn’t get more perfect, instead of turning into a sobbing fangirl from the attention, you started teasing him back. You fan yourself when he’s thrusting his hips at you, roll your eyes whenever he says something cheesy, and pretend to puke when he does aegyo. His gummy grin came out in full force when you threw him a devil horn headband, and you raised your eyebrows at him in challenge. He prances around in the headband and the crowd is loving it. Too soon, the night is over. Two weeks later, you find a new comment on one of your youtube covers… MYG comments: ”The music’s not bad devil girl.”

Namjoon was greeting the crowd when he saw you, and stumbled over his words for a moment. You were stunning. If tumblr was a person, it would be you (I crack myself up). He spent most of the night hanging around your side of the stage, doing all kinds of silly things to make you smile, talking to the crowd as much as he could get away with. He knew he was supposed to be professional and pay attention to everyone, but he just couldn’t help himself. He was pleased when he saw you get excited and sing along with his parts, and thought it was cute when you tried to rap. At the end of the night, he made sure to lock eyes with you as he was saying goodbye to the crowd and gave you one of his famous dimpled winks. Fast forward a few months later, and the boys are looking over profiles for a model to be the love interest in their new music video. Namjoon’s shocked expression has everyone looking at the profile in his hand. “This one.” he growls. It’s you.

He sees a huge poster of him in a puppy costume in the crowd. It makes him laugh so he looks down at the fans holding it and is shocked. You were perfect. Suddenly, he wants to do nothing but impress you. Goodbye puppy Jimin, hello Adonis. This boy is being completely disrespectful and there are way more body rolls, lip bites, and clothes being pulled off than there was supposed to be. He threw his shirt at you, and you caught it, shocked and blushing, while he grins. The night ends, and you leave a changed person, a Jimin stan for life. You are so worked up you film yourself dancing to Jimin’s solo Lie, and post it on youtube.  A few days later, it’s being retweeted by none other than BTS’s twitter. In your messages you find something from someone with a private profile. “Are you wearing my shirt right now? ;) (I’m sorry, he just seems like he would totally fuk boi text, ya know?)

This boy would notice you right away and turn into a blushing mess. Until the music starts, that is. Suddenly he’s serenading you, and smirking, and just being charismatic AF. You were a little older than him and weren’t even a Jungkook stan, but you kept feeling yourself being pulled in his direction. He certainly moved his body in a way that suggested he knew what he was doing. Soon it was you that was a blushing mess and he loved it. You threw the plushie monkey on stage that you had actually meant for another member and he was quick to snatch it up and wrap it around his neck. He spent the rest of the night with it like that, and when the concert was over and they went to their rooms, he had it in bed with him. Some time passed, and you’re performing an acoustic cover of one of your favorite love songs at a cafe, like you do every Saturday. When the song is over, one of the waitresses brings over some tea and tells you it’s been paid for. You look around, and there in the dark corner of the cafe is a person in a black face mask. He pulls it down and winks at you before putting it back. Jungkook has found you.

Ah, Tae. With this boy you never know what you’re going to get. He’s either the most adorable thing to ever exist, or so hot a single glance will melt you into a puddle. When he sees you in the crowd, sex god Taehyung is activated. He’s looking into your eyes while licking his lips. Thrusting his hips, and dancing so incredibly amazing. He’s been pulling his shirt up so much you begin to wonder why he even still has it on. Towards the end of the night, you throw up the two plushies you’d brought for him. He picks them up quickly, and kisses one before giving it back to you with a wink. You both sleep with them that night. The next day you are so inspired (infires!) that you spend all day drawing. You post what you consider your greatest work, Taehyung in all his seductive glory, on tumblr and it seems to be well received. You get a message a few days later. “Do you really think I look like that? WOW. I think you’re pretty too.”

You were obviously filming and taking pictures, so he made sure to make as much contact with you as possible. At the end of the night, he looks straight into your camera and gives you his famous flying kiss. Several months later, Jin is taking an acting class, to prepare for a drama he was considering trying out for. The teacher reads off names and puts them into groups for a project.

I Don’t Dance - Story Repost

A/N: I’m feeling a little down on my writing, which led me to dig around in my fanfic folder, which led me to find this. It will be canon in my head until something else airs. :) 


Oliver Queen didn’t dance. He could vaguely remember dancing with his baby sister at a wedding reception when she still wore dresses that puffed out. During his partying days, he avoided the dance floor, preferring other…activities. After the island, he didn’t even like parties―only holding them and running a nightclub to hide his now worthwhile activities. According to some people, at least. The only wedding he’d been to since he stepped foot in Star City again was his best friend’s, and he spent most of it staring wishfully at him and his wife, swaying to the music while they stared into each other’s eyes, so full of love.

So why, tonight, did he have his arms around his new wife, leading her in their first dance together as husband and wife?

He didn’t really know. Couldn’t imagine how he finally figured out how to love a woman so much that he wanted to spend the rest of his days with her by his side. Couldn’t believe that she would actually want him by her side for another fifty years.

But he did. Somehow, some way, he did. They did. It hurt to think about how many rocky hills they had to climb before they reached the top of the mountain, but with their love for each other, they made it, and tonight, they were waving that flag from the mountain peak.

In a tux and a wedding dress.

The song that Thea picked out for them played on, but Oliver couldn’t hear or see anything but his wife. His wife. Tears filled his eyes as he thought of his younger self. Never would twenty-three-year-old Oliver Queen have imagined that eight years later he would be dancing with the most beautiful, kindest, gentlest woman on the face of the earth. The thirty-year-old version would’ve had a hard time imaging it.

Felicity twirled in her gown and then came back to rest her head on his chest. “Whatcha thinkin’ about?”

“About you.”

“About how I hacked your phone to see where we’re taking the jet tonight?”

Felicity!”

“I’m kidding. What exactly were you thinking about?”

“How if I could get Barry to take me back to seven or eight years ago, my younger self would never believe me if I told him what was happening right now.”

“My younger self wouldn’t believe it either. Getting married to a handsome man like you? I could go on but I already rambled about you enough in those embarrassing vows.”

He spun her around again and chuckled. “They made me cry.”

“Probably from embarrassment.”

“Never.”

“You have another sixty years with me, Mr. Queen. I will make it a point to embarrass you at least fifty times.”

This time when she twirled, he pulled her back and wrapped his arms around her waist. He buried his face in her blonde hair and whispered, “As long as you’re with me for that long, I’d be okay with that.”

The song picked up, and Oliver pulled Felicity along to the beat. Several times, one of them stepped on the other’s feet. Personally he thought her heeled shoes had to hurt more than his normal ones did.

But didn’t that symbolize them? They had their missteps; sometimes those missteps felt like high heels had just been slammed down onto shoeless feet, and sometimes they were just little slips.

Nevertheless, they found each other again. They swept along to the music; they found a reason to dance together. Just like now.

Diggle, Thea, Barry, and the rest of the crew cheered as he lifted Felicity in the air and spun her in circles. She squealed and gripped his forearms, throwing her head back laughing as he rotated twice before setting her down.

The music reached the end, and Felicity pulled away just enough to look at him. And smile. “I love you, Oliver Queen.”

He dipped his forehead down against hers and allowed a moment to catch his bearings. Everything that she said moved him to tears, even the little ‘I love yous’ that he’d heard a million times. Her look of love that she’d given him since the very beginning made his body wilt. Somehow he caught this amazing woman who saw him not as he was, but who he could be.

“What did I do to deserve you?”

Felicity’s arms came around his neck and she laughed. “You brought a bullet-ridden laptop into my office, remember? I knew you had a good heart from the beginning. And after a little while, I knew that I could love you. And to answer your question…you loved me. That’s all you needed to do.”

He bit his lip and nodded. Nothing else could really come out. How could it?

“Hey.” Her hands slid down his cheeks, her voice soothing away any doubts he still had. “You deserve me, Oliver. Don’t tell yourself any different. I’m your partner for life now. And you’ll definitely have to get used to me giving you these kind of pep talks.”

This time he smiled at her. “I’d be okay with that.”

Their kiss was met with roars of approval. Most of the noise came from Diggle and Thea. Oliver smiled as her lips claimed his, holding him captive for just one last moment before the night flew by them in a flurry of dancing and partying. He loved her. He loved this woman.

As the night wore on, he danced with his sister, his new mother-in-law, and countless other girls whom he knew. He and Sara Lance even took a turn.

“I’m happy for you, Ollie. Really, really happy.”

“Thanks, Sara.” He spun her around twice, careful not to reinjure her broken wrist. “I’m happy too.”

“It’s been a while since I’ve heard you say that. And before…you weren’t really telling the truth. Because you weren’t really happy before then either. Your soul was looking for the right girl. And you found her.”

“Yeah.” His eyes travelled the room until he found her, laughing with Roy and Thea. By the mortified look on Roy’s face, it had to have been wildly disturbing. He chuckled. Poor Roy. Felicity could pack a punch when it came to distasteful comments. Part of the reason he loved her so. “Yeah, I did.”

Because he did. Oliver Queen, former party boy and ex-killer, had found his light. With her help, he became the Mayor of Star City. With her help, he became the Green Arrow. He became a better man with her by his side. She changed him. And if someone wanted to argue that changing into a different kind of vigilante wasn’t true change, he had one fact to give them: Oliver Queen didn’t dance.

But tonight, he did. Because Oliver Queen could dance. As long as it was with one girl.

Felicity Smoak.

Prompt thats angsty but fluffy? Where Trini gets into an argument with her mother and blurts out something along the lines of "you just can't accept that I'm gay can you?!" And she ends up running off but cuz of their ranger powers everyone just knows one of them is upset especially Kim and they end up finding a slightly drunk sad and gay trini sitting under a tree. Xx

Summary: In which Trini’s mother kicks Trini out and Kim is there for her gf.

Tags: Abuse, homophobia, underaged drinking, more angst than fluff but there’s fluff at the end

Notes: I know that Trini’s mom’s name is June… right?  I’m not quite sure about the dad so I just named him Richard because that was the name that popped on the top of my head.

Read @ Ao3


“Trinity, this girl you’ve been friends with, Kimberly… I saw something or are my eyes deceiving me?” June asked her daughter just as Trini twists the doorknob to her bedroom. Trini stops as she remembers dropping her friends off at Kim’s car after spending the afternoon at the Gomez household.

Kim had kissed Trini for a quick second out of unconscious actions. Both wide eyes as they pulled away, remembering that no PDA anywhere near Trini’s house as one of their rules. The group looked at the house and its windows to see if anyone in the household saw, especially Trini’s mom. They gave a small sigh after seeing no one and they all nodded and laughed in agreement that Trini and Kim have to keep their kissing in control near Trini’s house.

“You know why we always move and I’m sure you don’t want a repeat. I suggest you drop the entire gay act and stop defying me.” June had said, keeping her head straight up, voice unfaltering, and arms now crossing her chest, showing signs that she is in control of the household.

Trini’s grip on the doorknob tightens but releases it before it can break under her super powered grip. Trini turns around to face her mother with a fuming face.

“You just can’t accept that I’m gay, can you?” Trini whispers under a dangerous tone that June had caught. Trini’s angered face turned into fear as she sees her mother’s brows creased in between.

Hit me with that cute shit and do Gwen for the love meme

*tries to remember what this is in reference to because it’s been forever* RIIIIIGHT! Okay, let’s do this.

When they discover they’ve got a crush:

I imagine with Gwen it gets increasingly difficult for her to recognize that she has a crush, with each time it doesn’t work out. (Either because you subscribe to my hc that she has a long string of failed relationships with douchebags or the idea that she’s an awkward nerd who’s never had a date, or something in-between.)

Anyway, I figure her immediate response is panic, then denial, then “oh fuck.” Probably in greater or lesser amounts depending on the likelihood of her crush feeling the same way.

How they confess/hint:

Aaaaaavoidance! Either until it goes away (ha, yeah right) or it just kinda … explodes out of her. She didn’t necessarily pick up her repressive, “shove these feelings down into a tiny box” tendencies from David, but it’s something I like to think they have in common. Self-medication — either through doctor-approved methods or … less doctor-approved methods — is probably another one.

Big gestures of love:

Anger. And panic.

If she’s yelling at you for being a goddamn idiot who could’ve gotten yourself killed, what the fuck were you thinking you absolute moron who the hell let you even leave the house without a chaperone for fu … Yeah, when you reach that point you know it’s love.

Also, going along with insane plans like ruining Parent’s Day (or, hell, having Parent’s Day) to take your most difficult camper out to pizza even though that might cost you your jobs. That, too.

Little gestures of love:

Canon: Ben & Jerry’s, urging you to take a break, learning your stupid shitty camp song and singing it

My headcanon: Calling you an idiot and lame, smiling/laughing 100% more than happens in canon because goddamn it I just need to hear my beautiful girlfriend laugh please I’ll do it myself if I have to

How to win their heart:

Watch trash TV with her. Take her to see some sort of live fighting — pro wrestling might be too corny, but boxing? Martial arts? Hell to the fuck yeah — share your opinions about bad YA romance, listen to her talk about … anything.

Just please, someone listen to her. No one listens to her. She knows so much and is so enthusiastic about sharing information and no one cares.

How to break their heart:

Hey, why do you think that Jeca is a toxic relationship? I mean, I ship Bechloe, but I don't get why you would think that way about Jeca? By the way, I make this question just out of curiosity, not because I'm trying to pick a fight or whatever. I just genuinely want to know. Have a lovely way <3

Hi! Since you’ve been polite and just want to know my opinion, I’ll reply you with simple but clear facts 😄 

(This reply is meant for people in general who ship these two).

 Jeca is a toxic relationship because of so many reasons.

1) Jesse is the perfect representation of a creepy stalker. He’s always watching her; first, at the beginning of the movie, from the car (okay, this was a coincidence because they both just arrived. But still). Later on, when Beca shows up at auditions, he appears behind her near the scenario. He couldn’t just sit with the rest of audience to watch people do the auditions, no; he had to follow her and observe her closely. Like “what the hell? You’re so creepy!

Regarding this, Jesse reminds me of the song Every Breath You Take by The Police (which by the way, talks about a stalker. Many people think is a love song, but it isn’t):

Every breath you take and every move you make

Every bond you break, every step you take, I’ll be watching you

Every single day and every word you say

Every game you play, every night you stay, I’ll be watching you

(…)

 Oh, can’t you see you belong to me

How my poor heart aches with every step you take

2) What’s worse: he doesn’t even accept Beca for who she is. Instead, when they’re working at the radio station, he criticizes her looks. Like, “what’s wrong with you, jerk?” Let me refresh your memory just in case; this is the dialogue between Jesse and Beca:

-Jesse: So, what’s your deal? Are you one of those girls who’s all dark and mysterious, then she takes off her glasses and that amazingly scary ear spike and you realize that, you know, she was beautiful the whole time?

-Beca: I don’t wear glasses.

-Jesse: Then you’re halfway there.

-That’s the look of someone who’s obviously in love with the jerk who’s insulting her appearance-

Even the foolish person on earth can see what’s going on here. He isn’t joking (honestly, if anyone finds this funny, he or she has a mental problem). Jesse sees Beca as an alternative girl who should change her appearance in order for people to see she was beautiful, implying she isn’t looking her best and only if Beca changes her way of dressing, etc. will become someone better. This is SO not right. Beca is amazing the way she is, just like each person in the world. Every one of us chooses how we wanna look by picking our clothes, using certain make up, etc. because this is a way of expression: the way we express our identity. And this jerk goes and opens his mouth to let her know her appearance is not right just because he says so.

Chloe, on the contrary, accepts and really likes Beca just the way she is (pun intended). Jesse just wants to manipulate Beca to make her fit into his world. A stereotypical world in which the girl has to look “girly” and the man gets the girl at the end of the movie.

3) And if anyone finds him charming and excuses him by saying he was joking, I repeat: no, he wasn’t. He wanted to change Beca from the very beginning. He had his eyes on her and wanted her to become her girl because he’s so fucking obsessed with movies and he must have her. Like some kind of trophy. And what’s his favorite one? Oh, yeah. “The fucking Breakfast Club”. I watched this movie to know why would he like it so much and why would he recommend Beca  watching it. What I found didn’t surprise me at all. There is an alternative girl who wears dark clothes and everything, and at the end of the movie she decides to suddenly get a makeover by wearing a pink dress and having a hairstyle that isn’t like her at all. I don’t have anything against dresses, but I’m definitely against changing the way one looks or behaves to be liked by someone. In this case, there was an athletic boy that, after seeing this change of looks, decides to ask this girl out. Whaaaaat?

————————-Now I look like a flawless butterfly!———————


There’s a huge difference between the way Jesse acts towards Beca and the way Benji behaves towards Emily inn PP2. The latter are two cute dorks and it’s a healthy relationship. Both act the way they are and none of them has to change in order to like each other.

And I’m stopping here because I could ramble all day about how Jesse isn’t worthy of being with Beca. In real life, if someone doesn’t like the way you are, you don’t go out with that person. You and them are not meant to be, that’s all. But no, here he has to get his own way and at the end of the movie, he has to get the girl after behaving like a douche, because that’s the way it had to be, right? *snorts*

 So yeah, Jeca is toxic and no one should romanticize a relationship like this.

Game Of Thrones: Season 7 episode 6 non spoiler review: Starkbowl, The blue eyed army, Jon Snow (King of my heart), A dragon or two, A tale of the hammerless Gendry, A love song for Tormund and me being absolutely done with Game of Thrones. Because I'm not ready to die and the show wants to kill me.

Note: Even though this is a non spoilery review, it may contain spoilers which will be noted/indicated before they are revealed. All thoughts are just my personal observations and opinions.

Firstly, let’s talk about Arya and Sansa- because that’s some BS right there and I can’t even; at first, I thought Arya and Sansa were playing littlefinger. But from this episode, I am now unsure. D&D, do you truly expect me to believe that these two sisters who haven’t seen each other in years, believed most of their family members to be dead and had no one and nowhere to call home would honestly be fighting like this? I can understand if there were only a slight atmosphere of distrust and/or caution- they didn’t get along even as children and of course now that they’re grown up they’d be trying to get a better feel of eachother, but all full blown bloody starkbowl is not what I had in mind. I mean [SPOILER] Arya (essentially) only threatened to kill Sansa [SPOILER] by saying she could wear her face (can you wear the face of someone living?). I mean maybe threatened is too harsh a word? But Arya’s intention in that scene was certainly to intimidate Sansa. It was working very well. But bravo to my Sansa (Queen of my heart and my Kings heart), for standing her ground. My point is, I find this very unrealistic and if it’s not a ploy planned by my Stark girls, I very well hope they band together in the end (which they will). I just want my baby’s to understand and recognise each others struggle and bloody love eachother.


Now let’s move on to the King of my heart: Jon “I am a King” Snow. Sigh. Jon oh Jon. Why oh why would you do that? No, seriously. I’m very very angry. I saw this coming of course ( I read the spoilers- shame on me). But I seriously can’t even comprehend what you think you’re doing. I WAS ROOTING FOR YOU, WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU. [MAJOR SPOILER] There was absolutely no need for you to “bend” the knee. She had promised to help you fight the white walkers. She was going to help you fight the blue eyed demons. Soooooooooooooo why did you do that. [Spoiler] My Queen- YOU ONLY KNOW ONE TRUE QUEEN IN THE NORTH WHO’S NAME IS STARK. Sigh. I don’t get where this sudden affection for Dani has come from. It was literally non existent before. It’s either due to his gratitude for her help. Orrrrrrrrr he’s playing the game. He’s killed the boy, recognised her great affection for him, and has decided to use it to his advantage. He’s killed the boy. Hopefully it’s that latter, but I can imagine it being a mix of both. Furthermore Jon Snow, I am very cross with you, but I love you and trust you enough to know that when we are at the end, your duty to the North, to your family, to your one true Queen Sansa Stark will override everything. Including Dani. You’re a man of your word Jon snow. A man of your word.


Ah, Dany. Now this episode, Dany’s character intrigued me immensely. I’m going to start with her wardrobe choice. When she went to help our gang, she transitioned back in to her lighter coloured clothing (to show that she’s actually doing something selfless for the first time in ages). But as soon as she gets back to the boat, she has changed back in to her darker attire (to represent the dark path she’s still walking on). Nothing in GOT is a coincidence, they’ve done this on purpose. To foreshadow. To mirror her actions. I repeat nothing is a coincidence. They even throw in the conversation with Tyrion. Tyrion’s begging her not to go- to do nothing. Not because he wants our blue-eyed demon fighting companions to die- oh no. He does it because he loves her and he’s scared and he doesn’t want to lose her. But Dani refuses. She has to go. She has to help them. Why is this conversation thrown in? I think it’s to give us hope. Last episode Tyrion and Vary’s are having that whole conversation where they are convincing themselves (mostly Tyrion) that what she did to the Tarly’s (my poor Dickon), was justified. When Tyrion says she isn’t her father, Vary’s replies she never will be with the correct consul. And here in episode 6, we perhaps see the earlier version of Dany. Helping people because she wants too, because she sees it as a duty, because it’s the right thing to do. Not the Dany we’ve been seeing recently: a Dani obsessed with the iron throne because she believes it’s her birth right (lol- R+L= J. Targbowl is really on the horizon). And it gives us hope. Perhaps she makes questionable decisions, but she is still good. Nope. As soon as we’re back on the boat, back in to her dark attire to represent her dark path. I mean think about it, [SPOILER], if they wanted to paint her as this truly good leader, why accept Jon bending the knee? If she had said no, I’ll help you either way, no my faith in her would’ve been fully restored. Because she’d be helping Jon not because she got something out of it, but because she recognises the threat the white walkers pose is too real to ignore. I have a love/hate relationship with Dany. I don’t hate Dany, I love her in the way that I love Cersei- not because she’s a good person, because she’s a complex one. When her and Tyrion discuss what happened with the Tarly’s, she calls it necessary. When Tyrion explains other ways they could’ve dealt with it- SHE DISREGARDS HIM. Sigh. There’s so much I could say about Dani but honestly, I’m just not bothered.


The blue eyed army- also known as the White walkers. This paragraph will include spoilers in essentially every sentence, so I suggest you just skip this one. Okayyyyyy- let’s talk about The King of the Blues- or the night King. Whatever. Same thing. This guy is BADASS OKAY. [SPOILERS FROM HERE UNTIL THE END OF THE WHITE WALKER PARAGRAPH]
The way he killed Viserion on his first attempt? Yeahhhhhh byeeeeeee. Dude’s just too cool for school. He’s too cool for the North. He’s just cool in general to be honest. I really can’t wait until season 8 and the rest of the books to find out what the WW’s true purpose is. I’m really interested to find out. They really killed my baby Benjen. Who deserved so much more in life- YOU SEE JON. BENJEN DIDN’T DIE FOR YOU TO BEND THE FRICKING KNEE. YOU POMPUS SWINE. YOU ATTRACTIVE BEAST. YOU PANTY DROPPER. Sigh. Jon Snow, King of my heart- he knows nothing. But the White walkers are seriously such an interesting aspect of the show and now that they have a dragon on their side, it’s about to get very very interesting. The wall’s coming down. And the war’s about to begin.


Tormund and a splash of The Hound- I just love Tormund and thought it was wrong to write a review and not mention him. I love him and all the cute things he said about Brienne. And his observation of the Hound was bloody spot on (the hound is another interesting character).
[Slight dialouge SPOILER].
“I don’t think you’re really mean, your eyes are sad.”
[SPOILER] I just thank the God’s (the old God’s and the new), that they kept him alive as it was a very very close call.

The Hammerless Gendry- A tale: A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR BLOODY GENDRY THE HAMMERLESS who indirectly saved our gang. Whom is already loyal to his future “brother” (mwahahaha) in-law and the KITN (forever and always) Jon snow. Who could’ve died but kept running. The true hero of this episode: THE HAMMERLESS GENDRY. [SPOILERS AHEAD BUT IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE HIS HAMMER IS READ ON] Okay, so we’ve captured a WW, just another day in the North you know- no bigie and we’re ready to return to perhaps not the comfort of dragonstone (we are essentially bloody prisoners), but definitely as far away from the blue eyed ones as possible when we find ourselves surrounded by the army. YAY. Bloody brilliant. So what does Jon who knows nothing Snow do. We send our most capable rower- sorry- runner to run back to Dadvos (I do love Daddy Davos) and get a Raven to Dragonstone stat. At first, he refuses to leave bro in-law but Jon tells him he’s the only one who can do it. So he begins to run when The Hound stops him, says he’ll be faster without the hammer and so (hesitantly), Thor- I mean Gendry- entrusts the hammer with The Hound (guess he’s worthy). And that my friends, is how Gendry the Hammerless lost his hammer. And he’s a bloody hero for it. If Gendry didn’t get to Dadvos, Dani wouldn’t have known what was going on and therefore, they’d have been screwed. Gendry is the true hero.


My final thoughts: I enjoyed episode 6 thoroughly (apart from a few bits and bobs) and don’t know what I’m going to do next week when it all ends for maybe two years as opposed to one. It definitely gave me all the feels- I shouted, I jumped, I rolled my eyes, I almost cried (twice) and I got very very angry. I don’t understand where Jon and Dany popped out of but understand its necessity in the show in order to set up Targbowl, The (inevitable) Northern revolt and the fulfilment of Dany’s prophecies (three mounts you must ride… three fires you must light). I can tell Dany is smitten with Jon. Couldn’t say the same for Jon until this episode (poor Jorah). I’m happy the gang is safe for now. And I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of Sam and Gilly at Winterfell. Littlefinger death shall be immensely satisfying. Can’t wait for this foolish Starkbowl to end. The meeting at KL is going to be epic. Dany vs Cersei. Brienne and Jamie reunion. Euron shows his face maybe? A flipping R+L=J REVEAL WOULD BE GREAT. And yeah. I have too many feelings to type coherently, but overall, I quite enjoyed that episode.


I’m on book two of The Ice And Fire series: a clash of kings. And so far, I am enjoying them immensely.

Sneak Peak: The Prince & Me

a/n: This is a 600(ish) words sneak peak of something based of a request that i’m now working on. If you’re reading this i’d love some feedback x

As the night came to a close, a young man sat patiently at a table observing the people around him, the atmosphere became more warm and intimate as the bar slowly emptied. He noticed the staff seemed to smile more genuinely, their friendships on full display as they began to joke and dance while closing up for the night and he felt honoured to witness such a sight. He watched as they put chairs up on tables, mop the floors and clean out the machines and yet they seemed really happy, more comfortable then they’d been all day, he couldn’t help but think maybe it was because they finally had control of the jukebox.
Soft mumbles of steel guitar strings, resembling an REO Speedwagon song, began playing through the speakers as the affection of the man’s eye began swaying back and forth in time with the melody. He watched as she slid her shoes off and got lost in her own little world, softly mumbling the words under her breath as she danced. “Mhmm” he replied without removing his eyes from the girl as a warning came that it was 15 minutes till closing.

“Sorry it took so long, closing up always takes ages. You ready?” She finally appeared in front of him, out of uniform, books in hand and he bag hanging messily over her shoulder. “I don’t know, were the Montagues and the Capulets ready to stop fighting after Romeo and Juliet died?” He asked peeling the bag from her shoulder to ease the weight. “I don’t know” she laughed, “that’s why you’re helping me study?” “Right, right, sorry” he shook his head, smiling to himself as he made his way over to the door to hold it open for her. She turned around and began walking backwards to face him “I’ve been calling them the mongooses, oops” her confession caused him to throw his head back in a small but genuine laughter.

***

24 Hour Laundromats had become their hangout, every night after her shift they’d both walk over to the small establishment and as it was late by time they’d get there, it’d be completely empty. The neon lights out the front were the only real lighting they had, the lights above them were wither being repaired or broken to the point of no return. The walls were lined with washing machines and dryers while the background was just fabric softeners and detergents that caused a rank smell throughout the room.
“You’re from the land of Shakespeare, doesn’t that make you some sort of natural genius at all things poetry?’ she teased, shoving popcorn in her mouth. “God no,” he quickly shook his head “I was just expected to grow up very knowledgeable and my parents saw to it that that’s how I turned out” he paused as he put his coins into the washing machine. “Okay…” he wiped his hands on his jeans and slid down the wall to sit beside her, “where are we up to?” he grabbed the book from her hands and began to read “…My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss” he closed his eyes taking in the words imprinted on the page. “Wow, you’re a real fangirl, aren’t you?” he laughed “I just find it really beautiful” “but I don’t understand what he’s saying,” she frustrated “I know it’s supposed to be some beautiful, life changing bullshit but I don’t know what the hell he’s saying, why can’t he just say it straight out?” he looked at her in amusement, shifting his whole body to face her as he moved in closer. “But that’s what’s so beautiful about it, personally, I like how it’s something you have to think about, it doesn’t have one straightforward meaning it makes a universal story more personal to you and how you interpret the struggles of two people so deeply in love they’d betray their families just to be together” his voice softened as if he was scared anyone but her would hear him talk.

A moment of silence passed between them “…well fuck

anonymous asked:

do you happen to know why pyoji's solo teaser was reuploaded? i'm struggling to find information as to why :(

So don’t have every little detail so forgive me. But KBBCs were not happy with the women in the MV. Made a huge thing about it and even (I think) was going to boycott P.o’s solo debut if it wasn’t changed. Even heard something about not wanting another Conduct Zero on their hands and only doing this because they don’t want P.o to have a scandal or issue off that bat of his solo career.

Now the issue I find with this is….has any of these people listen to P.o’s actual music?

For me it’s like OH NO WE NEED TO SAVE THE BABY, THE FLUFF BABY, THE YOUNGEST, THE ONE THAT HAS NO SEX APPEAL AND I HAVE NEVER LISTENED TO ONE OF HIS SONGS!

The song I’ve been wanting but never got a release 

He also been apart of most of Bastarz’s songs and their songs are not on the cute side. Boy makes one song called Selfish & Beautiful Girl and everyone like this is P.o. It’s like Jiho wanting to do more than what he was use to and how I felt what P.o was doing. I guess he getting hate too from the fandom. For me this has taken me from surprised because I thought it’s been knew about what music P.o makes.

To.Bitxx

What’s in your head bitxx
Plastic surgery beauty, obsessed with luxury bags
A famous bully during your school days
But now you’re just a club-going girl

Every day you prepare sexy underwear
You pick up guys who look a bit naïve
And wet your lips, everyone beware
That bitch’s body is killer

After drinking, eyes open and you’re in a motel
And then the day after in a hotel
I’ll give you a nickname girl
An aged luxury rag, how’s that?

Girl, grab a guy with lots of money
No, don’t think about marrying
A guy who meets you fxcking
Must feel like shit, just sell your body damm

or my favorite song to this day by him

I Believe in Me

My way, at the end of this road
Let me be the one looking at heaven while laughing
A recipe leading to success
I don’t need it, I follow me, I believed in me

The bright and unfocused child from boyhood
Woke up alone every day
Had to leave when the parents go to work
Kindergarten, even before the school doors open

Waited for the teacher to come quickly
In the child’s hands is a breakfast of Dunkin’ Donuts
Both parents work so they have no time
I know they are working for me

I smiled every day because I wanted to become a strength for them
I smiled even though it was hard
The positive personality I learned that time
Became a weapon and support to the adult me

When I just turned a little older than 10
My parents’ jobs thrived and I was given
An environment where I’m not in want
I came to match shoulders with a relatively wealthy household’s son

My father told me
“You’re my son so you’ll become a special man”
Although our home was small and poor
My dream that grew from there was neither small nor poor

Trans by: bontheblock

I don’t know the full story of course but what it seems is they are worried about P.o’s solo debut and how having women in the MV will give him backlash….which in the end gave P.o backlash and even censoring him even though this isn’t a new style of music for P.o. *sigh* I don’t even think this song is going to be a true P.o song that we come to know but a more poppy fun song with fluff cute scenes. Now the MV has been edited and we will never know what the MV was suppose to look like. I guess only one man in Block B is allowed to have women and their ass and titties in his MVs and no one says anything about.

VVV I’m 100% sure has ass and titties but please don’t make me watch that shit show of a MV. Thank you.

Conspiracy theory this is all Jiho’s doing because he the only member that wants all the ass and titties in MVs all to himself even if having them there really has no point….he just wants to have random shots of them because it’s very very hep hap. 
A girl just trying to watch Artist and in the first minute I get a shot of someone’s ass. I get it Jiho you’re a horny man that likes ass but what does her ass have to do with this song? Also the post I made the other day about giving Jiho $5 to film my ass for his next MV was a jab at this whole P.o thing but also Jiho for the funnies. 

anonymous asked:

is there a rec of links for a beginner to kpop, like top groups or things to know. i can't seem to find one anywhere sorry to bother you

A Beginner’s Guide to Kpop

(aka, good lord i’ve wasted so much time on this)

I’m gonna introduce you to some basic groups and songs and terminology for Kpop. Be aware that I’m not an expert or anything, but I can help you out with some of the basics you should know if you want to get into it!

First, some words/terms to know.

A group, or band, is exactly what is sounds like. Most bands are usually either male or female (but some, like Akdong Musician or MFBTY, aren’t gender-specific) and usually range from four to twelve members (with some exceptions, like Orange Caramel and Seventeen.)

An idol is any single member of a group, regardless of gender.

For each group there is usually (but not always) a division of vocal, visual, dancer, and rapper. Vocals sing, visuals are the aesthetic draw/face of the group, dancers dance, rappers rap. Some members can fill more than one of these roles – for example, BTS’s Jungkook, who is a vocal, dancer, and rapper. Or MAMAMOO’s Hwasa, who is a vocal and rapper.

A bias is your personal favorite member of a given group, while an ultimate bias is your favorite member out of any group, period. 

A debut is a group’s very first song/MV that is being promoted. A comeback is a group’s newest song that is being actively promoted or made into a music video. Usually comebacks are accompanied by appearances on music shows, or even full albums. 

Aegyo is a Korean term for acting cute, making adorable faces and talking in a high-pitched voice. (I didn’t know what this was until like a month after I got into Kpop, and it left me so confused at the time lol)

A group’s Maknae is the youngest member. All older members are considered a Hyung/Oppa (a term that equates to ‘older brother’, shown as respect) or Noona/Unnie (a term for ‘older sister’, also shown as respect).

A Sasaeng fan is a creepy stalker fan. These are the people who sneak into idols’ dorms, who find their numbers and call them in the middle of the night, who write them letters in menstrual blood, and all kind of other nasty scary things. Don’t be like that.

There are some others, but these are the most important. That being said, if you do not speak Korean, please don’t throw Korean words around as an accessory. Show some respect for the language and those people who speak it, please. Don’t be that fan that’s like “OMG OPPA I LOV YUUUUU SARANGHAE” please don’t do that

Now, some top groups you should know about. 

(To anyone who is already in the Kpop fandom, please don’t get mad or say I’m ignorant if I don’t mention a group I should have mentioned. I might forget one. Also, again, I’m not exactly a Kpop expert.)

The groups I’m naming are ones that have made a very significant impact on the industry, or continue to show strong success today. That being said, there are a ton of influential groups, and I can’t really fit all of them on here without it getting too long. 

Some original, old-school groups to know are SHINHWA, Baby V.O.X., H.O.T., and Fin.K.L. These guys are like…. some of the OGs. We’re talking about the some of people who started what’s considered modern Korean entertainment industry. This was arguably the first ‘wave’ of Kpop music, and it hit around the late 90′s through the early 00′s.  

The next ‘wave’ brought some names and songs you might recognize, and this era is what people (who don’t really know much about Kpop) generally associate with Kpop. Artists like Shinee, 4MinuteSuper Junior, Girl’s Generation, TVXQ, 2NE1, Big Bang, Wonder Girls, f(x), and yes, PSY. A quick youtube search will bring up the top songs from these bands – most of the groups I just listed are even still active, despite debuting in 2005-2009. 

Around 2010-2012, the genre began gaining recognition on a more global scale. VIXX, EXID, CN-Blue, Orange Caramel, SISTAR, INFINITE, Ailee, Block B, A-Pink, BTOB, AOA, and EXO are popular artists that debuted under this time frame. This is when Kpop started to pick up steam in the global market, with more international hits coming from the Korean market (like PSY’s Gangnam Style or Big Bang’s Fantastic Baby, both of which you have probably at least heard of before). 

Kpop has exploded on a worldwide scale recently, bringing around a ton of new groups. 2013-2016 has been a timespan of massive international growth for the industry. This has led to the debut of tons of groups, but most notably – BTS, Akdong Musician, GOT7, MAMAMOO, Red Velvet, Winner, Oh My Girl, Monsta X, Twice, Seventeen, iKon, GFriend, Cosmic Girls, and NCT. That sounds like a lot, but there are a lot more I could name. 

That’s your brief history lesson on Kpop eras and group debuts! 

A few popular/influential songs from some of the groups listed above. 

(I had to pick and choose, because I couldn’t do every group. For each band I’ve listed an older song first, and then a newer song second. And it’s okay, you’re allowed to be a little bit freaked out by some of the older stuff. It’s okay.)

I’ve starred*** some of my personal favorites – I know it’s biased, of course, but those are just personal suggestions if you don’t have much time! I love pretty much every song on this list, though. I tried to choose songs that showcased each group’s strengths and growth over the years. 

SHINHWA - Perfect Man / This Love ***

2NE1 - I Am The Best / Come Back Home

Shinee - Lucifer / View ***

Super Junior - Mr. Simple / Devil

Girl’s Generation - Gee / Lionheart 

Big Bang - Bad Boy / Bang Bang Bang

f(x) - Electric Shock / 4 Walls ***

EXID - Every Night / Hot Pink

Block B - Nalina *** / Toy

EXO - Growl *** / Lucky One ***

AOA - Miniskirt / Good Luck

BTS - I Need U *** / Save Me ***

MAMAMOO - Piano Man  / You’re the Best ***

GOT7 - A / Fly

Red Velvet - Ice Cream Cake *** / One of These Nights

Seventeen - Adore U *** / Very Nice ***

Twice - Like OOH-AHH *** / Cheer Up

Monsta X - Trespass / All In

Oh My Girl - Closer / Liar Liar ***

NCT - The 7th Sense *** / Fire Truck

This doesn’t cover the whole Korean Music Industry. 

There is a lot more to Korean music than just boy groups and girl groups. There are tons of solo artists, indie artists, and hip-hop artists that I haven’t mentioned, and the groups I’ve already mentioned are just the tip of the iceberg. But if you’re just interested in learning about the more mainstream Kpop, the list above is a great place to start!

As far as solo artists go, I can highly recommend Zion.T, Lee Hi, DΞΔN, and Ailee

Getting into Kpop can be a gradual process, especially for a non-Korean speaker.

You pick things up as you go along, you learn what is and is not appropriate to say. It can be daunting at first, when you’re just learning how everything works. Honestly, it took me months to get a firm grasp on music shows and comebacks and promotions and variety shows and all that kind of stuff. 

The Kpop music industry is wildly different from any Western music industry, so if you’re more familiar with Western culture, there may be some things that confuse you. If you want to get into Kpop, please have an open mind and be respectful of cultural differences. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, but please do it respectfully!

Also, if you choose to follow Kpop idols on Twitter or Instagram, please be polite and leave kind/positive messages. If you look it up, there are lists of several translations of supportive messages (eat well, take care of yourself, i’m supporting you, etc.) that you can send in Korean, if you wish to. 

Kpop can be overwhelming at first. Trust me, I’ve been there. If you’re having trouble with learning a group’s names/songs, your best bet is to look up member profiles on Youtube or Google. The most helpful thing to me was watching music videos that had the members’ names on the screen! That helps to give some face recognition. 

(A tip – never memorize members by their hair color, because they change it up literally all the time.)

I hope this has been comprehensive and helpful, and I’m really sorry if I left anything out! If you’re looking to get into Kpop, I really think this would be a good place to start, and make things a lot less overwhelming.

The Plan

So, after some encourage me from Shayna, I decided to post some of my imagines that were originally on Wattpad. I am really sorry if this sucks badly, but I tried. I might post more too! I apologize for any grammar, spelling, or punctuation errors of any kind. Anyway, thank you Shayna! @sunshine-and-chocolate-kisses


“Dude, this is serious. My dad might really send me to Oats Military Academy this time!” Ted said in utter despair to his best friend, Bill Preston, who looked just as mortified.

“This is most heinous! How will we convince your old man not to send you to Alaska?” Bill replied, trying to think of ideas to save his best bud from military school.

“I have no idea. I’m sure he’s looking for plane tickets already!” Ted said with forlorn expression, which should never happen. Ted should always be happy and ready to rock n’ roll.

“Wait, dude! I think I just came up with the most excellent plan to save you.” Bill jollity said, feeling a hypothetical light bulb appear above his curly blond locks.

“Well, what is it, dude?” Ted questioned hastily, eager to hear Bill’s genius plan.

“Okay, well, you know [Name] [Last Name], right? The really smart honors babe?” Bill asked, referring to one of the most intelligent girls in their grade.

“Yeah, what about her?” Ted inquired, a bit confused at first. What did [Name] have to do with Oats?

“Okay well, here’s the plan, my amigo. We ask [Name] to fake date you for awhile, just so your old man lays off.” Bill revealed, feeling a bit proud. Man, who knew he was so good at this?

“Wait what? What if [Name] says no? That would be bogus!” Ted replied, feeling a bit more skeptical and reluctant to carry out this plan. But then again, when did Bill’s plans ever fail them?

I mean, they did pass history! Even if they received help [note: Rufus was the help], but who cares? They passed!

“She’ll say yes, dude. [Name] is nuts for you.” Bill reassured with a knowing smile.

“How do you know?” Ted questions.

“Okay, well you know Misty—I mean—MOM? Well, she’s friends with [Name]’s older sister, and sometimes they mention [Name]’s love life. I overhear stuff, y'know.” Bill revealed, which left Ted surprised at the revelation.

“Oh, really?” Ted mumbled, still dazed in shock. He wasn’t expecting such a pretty and smart girl to find interest in HIM. Ted knows he’s a ditz, he hears people talk about him sometimes. And while sometimes it hurts to hear people’s general opinion of him, he chooses not to care.

He’s destined for great things—both him and Bill. So, who cares what others think?

“Trust me, Ted. It’ll work!” Bill reassures one last time before they start practicing their songs. 


“What?” [Name] asks in surprise, still grasping her AP Chemistry books in her hands.

“Please [Name]…” Ted pleaded, unintentionally making a puppy face, which seemed totally lame of him but [Name] found it cute.

“Let me get this straight, Ted. You want to hire me as a fake girlfriend so your dad doesn’t send you to Alaska for military school?” [Name] asked, repeating everything she heard to make sure she was right.

“Yup.” Ted bluntly replied, a grin on his face, which [Name] thought was adorable. It wouldn’t hurt to help the poor kid, right? Plus, [Name] doesn’t think Ted could be states away from Bill. Those two were inseparable.

“How much pay is the job?” She asked, giving a smirk back in reply.


“Well, what did she say?” Bill asked, tuning his guitar to the best of his ability, which was not that great.

It was after school already, and the two boys were getting ready for band practice.

“She actually said yes, dude! I have a girlfriend, a fake one, but a girlfriend nevertheless!” Ted exclaimed in delight, now the hard part was actually convincing his dad.

“Excellent! I told you, dude!” Bill happily responded.

“Yeah, later tonight I’m going to tell my dad, so we’ll see how that goes.” Ted informed Bill. After that, the two rockers got into their regular routine as the Wyld Stallyns.


“Hey baabe!” Ted called out for [Name], who was walking with her Academic Decathlon friends.

“Who is he talking to?” [Name]’s friend, Trinity, asked with a scandalized tone.

“Me.” [Name] replied, which shocks everyone in the friend group as Ted approaches her.

“Don’t mind me, dudes. I need to borrow my girlfriend for a moment.” Ted says without delay, gently taking [Name]’s hand and dragging her away.

“What’s the big idea, Ted?” [Name] asks once they reach a more reclusive part of the campus.

“Okay, so I told my dad I had a girlfriend at dinner last night.” Ted revealed, and he seemed a bit timid too.

“Oh, how did he respond?” [Name] queried, curious to hear the answer.

“Well, him and my brother laughed for about five minutes straight at the news. He almost choked from laughing too much.” Ted replied, feeling a bit ashamed and embarrassed.

At the new information, [Name] felt determine to prove people wrong about Ted Logan. Sure, he was sometimes ditzy, but he was a very nice person. Not to mention, he’s very cute. It sadden and irritated [Name] that Ted and his friend Bill had such a bad reputation.

[Name] let out a heavy sigh before looking up at her tall (fake) boyfriend with a determined look, “Look Ted, we’re going to convince everyone in San Dimas we’re a thing. Trust me, you’ll never step foot on Alaskan soil if you don’t want to.”

Ted smiled, feeling a bit better, “Thanks [Name], you’re pretty cool yourself.”

“I know dude, I know. So, when am I meeting your old man?” [Name] asked, already thinking of possible outfits to wear. She needs to dress to impress.

“Saturday?” Ted suggested, and [Name] nodded.

“I’ll see you at 7!”

After that, [Name] went through motions of her week. But it didn’t come without repercussions of Ted announcing their relationship, and she was having trouble with her friends. It just angered [Name] so much, so what if Ted isn’t good at math?

Or so what if he forgot his chemistry homework? He isn’t a bad person at all, but her friends want to think otherwise.

“C'mon [Name], why are you with him? He’s so beneath you.” David, a so-called friend, stated. Murmurs of agreements could be heard from the hallway, and that was the final straw for her.

“Look, assholes. I don’t know what stick is up your asses, but I’m not dealing with it. I’m dating Ted, so what? It isn’t your business, and frankly, he’s way above you. At least he isn’t degrading people, and making them feel bad for who they. So you know what? Screw you guys, he’s my boyfriend!” [Name] ranted out, feeling livid at her friends, which she wasn’t sure if they were her friends anymore.

To put it bluntly, they were too shock to even say anything towards the angry girl. [Name] ran into Ted as soon as she left the classroom, seeing him outside the door.

“[Name]…” Ted mumbled, and it was so sad seeing him so dejected.

“You heard those idiots, huh? Well, don’t listen to them, Ted. You’re cool and I like you for you.” [Name] reassured, giving him a smile, taking his hand into hers.

“You’re the best, babe.” Ted replied back, a huge grin growing on his face.

“I know. I can’t help it, y'know.” [Name] replied, and the two walked down the hallway, their hands intertwined with each other.

In the end, when Saturday evening came, it turned out that Ted’s father absolutely adored her. He was happy to see his son date such a respectable and intelligent young lady, even claiming that [Name] would be a good influence.

If Mr. Logan had any plans of sending his son away, they were halted as Ted’s (and even Bill’s) grades ended up improving as [Name] tutored them.

Ted and [Name] decided to drop the “fake” part out of their relationship and ended up as an actual couple. Even Ted’s younger brother thought [Name] was cool, and he was a hard-ass to impress.

Bill was thrilled that he was the best wingman ever, but he was also happy his best friend wasn’t leaving.

After all, the Wyld Stallyns were going to change the world.

THE ESSENTIALS - A STONY STARTER LIST

For those newly inducted into the Stony family, there are a few fics which everyone needs to read. And here are a few compiled for your reading pleasure:

The Twice Told Tale by arysteia: For someone he’d hero-worshipped for so long, Steve Rogers in the flesh is a pretty big disappointment. For one thing, he keeps looking at Tony as though he reminds him of someone else, and even if he never says anything, Tony’s pretty sure it’s his father. A lifetime of not measuring up to Howard’s expectations is more than enough, thank you very much, and he’s certainly not going to make an effort to live up to any of Steve’s. Steve’s pretty clearly failed to live up to his expectations, in any case, and that’s not hypocritical at all. Explicit, 15 789, Complete.

Ghost in the Wires by sororexitium: When Steve moves into Avengers mansion he is caught up in strange coincidences. He walks behind an unseen ghost: a ghost who leaves empty spaces all around the manor. It doesn’t make sense, and it sounds crazy until he meets Anthony, a computer simulation programmed by Anthony Stark, who died two years ago. Then it just seems even crazier. Mature, 48 292, Complete.

Two Out of Three (Ain’t Bad) by plingo_kat: It blindsides him one morning in the middle of his customary third cup of coffee; Steve walks through the door in loose cotton pants, shirt pulled up to wipe the sweat off his face from his usual morning workout, and Tony thinks: adorable. Teen, 9 449, Complete.

Coming Home by Sonora: When S.H.I.E.L.D. approaches Tony Stark to help with their 1940s deception for Steve Rogers, to be a semi-familiar face and name to help re-introduce him to the world, Tony agrees on one condition - that it’s his show to run. And at first, it seems like his plan’s going off without a hitch. What he doesn’t account for, however, are his own growing feelings for Steve. Mature, 22 138, Complete.

Bros Before by tsukinofaerii: For a year, Steve and Tony have had a bromance of epic proportions, bonding over cheesy movies and long, dateless nights where they reminisce over love lost.

How To Royally Fuck Up The Avengers Tower by theappleppielifestyle: “Hey, Cap, it’s Tony. Stark. Iron Man. Uh, yeah- I was looking over the designs for your part in the Avengers Tower, and I am pretty sure Fury will castrate me if I put in some stripper poles, so I was wondering if you could swing by and see if everything is, uh. Dandy. Did people say ‘dandy’ in the 40s? I have no idea. Ah, anyway, drop by anytime. Yep. Bye.” Teen, 17 021, Complete.

Teenage Dream by shinkonokokoro: A battle with Loki leaves Tony de-aged physically and mentally to the time he was in college.
young!Tony takes it all in stride. He is duly impressed by his armor, confused and excited by all the superhumans (Thor and Hulk) around and then is smacked by the realization that the boring blond hovering around is actually his MAJOR childhood hero / crush / source of adolescent fantasies Captain America! Cue teen!Tony trying his best (and maybe succeeding?) to get into an increasingly flustered and blushy Captain America.
Bonus if teen!Tony is still way way more experienced than virgin!Steve and is *delighted* to get to top (and deflower) Captain America.
(Um, extra bonus for including a little bit of Rhodey and Pepper interacting with Tony. Also super bonus for Steve unearthing Tony’s daddy issues by the dozen.)
Explicit, 16 905, Complete.

Living In The Future by Closer: Eighteen-year-old Tony Stark is the boy genius who woke Captain America, and now he’s stuck with him. That’s not a bad thing, but between Steve’s wide-eyed wonder at the new world and Tony’s little fanboy crush, the awkwardness just keeps happening. Mature, 36 271, Complete.

In All the World by wallhaditcoming: In a world where Sentinels, people with five heightened senses, bond mentally and spiritually with Guides, people gifted with empathetic powers, Tony Stark has spent thirty-three years overwhelmed by the emotions of those around him and running from his own. Sentinel Steve Rogers wakes up sixty years out of his own time and struggles to deal with the massive amount of new sensory input while trying to find his footing in a New York very different from the one he knew.

We Don’t Need a Heart of Gold, We Need the Heart of a Lion by Zekkass: 'You know what’s an interesting plot bunny? And I’m sorry in advance. If Captain America was an alternate personality of Steve’s or vice versa.’ Explicit, 16 879, Complete.

Mature, 1 676, Complete.

Start as You Mean to Go On by BlackEyedGirl: Tony gets that the others think this is an ego thing - the way he can’t resist pushing Steve’s buttons. Honest-to-God, the guy just bugs him. Mostly because Steve is distractingly perfect, but a little bit because of the family history. Explicit, 2 612, Complete.

Be No Stranger (All Your Saints and Soldiers Remix) by jibrailis: That’s the twenty-first century love song, baby. Glitz and glamour and every one of us is a liar. Teen, 5 973, Complete.

Team Building Activities by valtyr: Fury’s a beautiful princess. Clint’s plotting a Communist revolution. Rhodey’s not sexy. Wall-E’s not a documentary. Clint’s not gay but he does give a great blowjob. This fic is not an AU. Mature, 37 938, Complete. (one of my personal favourites)

Sleep Verse by ashinan: As the months progress, Steve takes note of Tony’s complete disregard of sleep. And when Tony does sleep, it is usually on the couch in the living room. What started as a means of getting Tony to acknowledge his body’s demands, evolved into a complex array of mathematical equations and Pavlovian conditioning.

This Wasn’t What the Brochure Promised by kahn: Tony, Steve, Clint and Bruce spend quality time together in a cave. Tony does not build another arc reactor (even if he sort of needs one).

Teen, 7 424, Complete.

Recalibration by malfaisant: Loki touched the sceptre to his chest, a centimetre above the arc reactor, a centimetre above where it would’ve been harmless and Tony would’ve brushed it off with a crude joke. Instead, there was a sharp needlepoint on his sternum, and cold, blue tendrils clutching at his heart, the same electric blue as his pupils. Explicit, 46 390, Complete.

Homefront by copperbadge: Steve Rogers is a capable leader, a kind and cheerful man, a good friend, a strong role model, and a loyal soldier. He’s also teetering on the edge of suicide. Explicit, 12 860, Complete.

Slipping Through the Years by often_adamanta: The plane crash and subsequent ice might have killed him, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still around, haunting those he cares about. And since the only person who can see him is Tony Stark, death sure isn’t going to be boring. Mature, 17 991, Complete.

The Act of Creation Will Be Your Salvation by scifigrl47: When Tony Stark was seventeen years old, he built his first AI. On that day, he ceased to be his father’s creation, and became a creating force in his own right.
That one act likely saved his life, and not always in the most obvious ways.

monsta x in chicago!

okokok so my legs are still completely numb from driving so much yesterday omg but i saw monsta x last night!!!! this is what my mushy brain can remember:

wonho - wonho is MUCH MUCH MUCH paler irl than i expected? that boy looks pure af lmao. his ass is also MAGNIFICENT guys i mean it’s out of this world. i could see the curve from where i was sitting! i couldn’t stop staring at him tho like he looks so good in person. pictures really do not do him justice! he’s also so goddamn sweet like he seemed a little nervous/shy but was overall super smiley n cute. jooheon kept yelling for us to cheer for his arms lmao (which were great btw)

jooheon - HOLY SHIT does jooheon have a lot of fans! like, a lot! he got the most screams for everything. it was really nice bc i never see enough people supporting my dude. he has ridiculous stage presence like w h o a it was unreal! he really belongs on stage. i felt like i was watching someone who has been performing for decades. he was that good! he’s also much paler than i expected and his hair was rly nice lmfao. he had a lot of energy and was all over the place and you could see how excited he was to be here. lots of talking in english! his pronunciation is really good too!

i.m - FIRST OFF, he introduced himself and went, “hi babies” so we all kind of died. since he’s an english speaker, he was the one speaking most of the time (along with minhyuk interrupting quite a lot lol what an excited puppy). he seemed to get flustered a lot and embarrassed when he would mess up. i’m over here like “baby omg no it’s okay!” there was one point where he was talking about hyungwon being gone and he just gave up and went “whatever” lol sweetie, you did good and we’re proud of you! he was also a popular one with fans - could probably rival jooheon if jooheon’s fans weren’t so loud lmao.

kihyun - THIS BOY IS SO SMOL GUYS I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO TELL YOU. especially when standing next to the members guys it was so cute and so noticeable? idk why i never noticed that before! tbh i can’t remember a lot of him bc he was so quiet. but he did seem super excited to be there like he was smiling nonstop. and let me tell you - his speaking voice is so nice to listen to! whenever he spoke, the audience shut up, unlike for the rest of the members most of the time lol.

minhyuk - WHAT A PUPPY. THIS BOY WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE. SUPER EXCITED. ALL THE TIME. HE WAS SPEAKING A MILE A MINUTE. also was interrupting i.m like 24/7 to put his two cents in. it was so cute guys. he was hella cheesy too like lots of flirty english lines, as expected lol. he was also pretty handsy with the members, even though the other members weren’t. like idk fanservice (in terms of bromance, they were super flirty overall with fans) was really low but minhyuk was still pushing to do it and i’m highkey not surprised.

shownu - THE MAN OF MY LIFE. guys. wow. what a man. wow. just. wow. he looks so good in person like they had his hair done all nice and he was so??? i don’t even have words. y'all you know that vine from no.mercy where his expression changes from evil to puppy in .02949 seconds? I GOT TO SEE THAT IN PERSON WITH MY OWN TWO EYES. this man is seriously so much more adorable than people give him credit for! he was pretty blankfaced but when he would smile, he SMILED like his whole face lit up and it was truly #beautiful. also his talking voice is so much deeper than i thought it would be? like he already sounds like an old man lol. he is also super tan like wow and i thought i was gonna die looking at so much perfection. and his dancing is so smooth? like monsta x as a whole are such good dancers but live it was so much easier to see his specific style and it was really cool! he seemed to be a little nervous but he did super well talking and i’m so proud of him c: ALSO i heard a lot of fans screaming for him and only him like his fans were very…specific and vocal like i feel so warm and happy inside knowing that he now knows that there’s a lot of shownu stans like myself here in america~

okay now for the actual songs. i can’t remember the whole set list but it was a pretty good mix of songs off of all their albums! like they even did blind/incomparable/calm down/be quiet/ex girl (all of which i never thought i would see live). they also covered 24k magic by bruno mars (minhyuk, jooheon, i.m). let me tell you - there is nothing cuter than minhyuk singing bruno mars and then saying later on, in english, how much he loves him lol. they didn’t do stuck, all i do, or amen which i’m kinda salty about but whatever lol. they did nearly all their title tracks. ALSO THEY HAD LIKE DUO/TRIO STAGES (jooheon/i.m/minhyuk, wonho *would have been with hyungwon*, and kihyun/jooheon) AND SHOWNU DIDN’T GET ONE I WAS LIKE WTF WHERE’S MY MAN? idk why they left him out and i was kinda mad tbh lol.

the sweetest part about this all is that they CONSTANTLY kept bringing up hyungwon! like they would say “oh hyungwon likes this song” or “hyungwon was really excited to dance this piece with wonho”. they even left spaces for him when they were talking or dancing and it was so sweet! the fans cheered loudest when he was brought up, i think. despite that, you could definitely feel that there was a member missing. monsta x felt so incomplete! they are not supposed to be six. i could feel it the entire time. something felt off. it just goes to show how great monsta x is as seven!

ANYWAY this is hella long but overall i had so much fun and the fandom was so sweet and respectful and y e s easily the best night of my life !
