the whole interview is pretty great

the situation on bts’ colorism in the japanese magazine

this is a long post, however i believe theres lots to understand on this subject that cannot be dismissed. i have two disclaimers: first, please read until the end before criticizing because when i say i made an effort to include all views i mean it. second, there will be hetero references in this since the interview was about their ideal girl.. i apologize n i dont mean to assume their sexuality or anything.

there are three main parts to this; 1) lets understand the whole picture, 2) be fair and 3) for those who were hurt by the “interview” and to those who want to dismiss them (this is not patronizing, i really fucking sympathize here)

lets understand the whole picture

to begin, I’m pretty much positive they didn’t actually interview bts for the magazine… rather, they drew on old interviews for the magazine… i don’t think the members were actually involved in any way with this magazine specifically. there a few posts about this and i’ll like them, but the best was by @jkguks. they showed how each exact response was recycled from an old interview. the post can be found here. comments have also been made that this magazine is known for such moves in the past and that their credibility isn’t so great. @allforbts pointed out here that the magazine didnt have a photoshoot – they reused pictures from other sources – which probably indicates they didn’t have an actual interview; however this isn’t real evidence. in my own personal opinion i dont trust the person who posted the translations on twitter. yes the translations are correct as far as we all know, but what i mean is… i think she knew the interview was old/reused. everyone that asked about the interview’s date received no response from her. she even made a comment about how many followers shes gained. if she cleared up that the interview was old or reused then this whole thing would die out n she’d stop getting followers. anyway i find it suspicious but i could also just be reading too far into it. the whole point of this is that at this point we can pretty much conclusively say that the interview is recycled n this is not something they said recently. this is not to devalue the weight of their words because it still hurt a lot of people. old or new, getting told your skin color is “unideal” is painful. however we do wanna look at this because we at least now know that their status of “since educated on colorism and racism and now pretty pc/sensitive” is not going to be revoked! they’ve since educated themselves, that is still the truth. this is just the ugly past come to rear its head.

on the other end of understanding the whole picture, i’m going to make a sorta controversial statement. hopefully in fully explaining it, you all will get the full idea… but for the sake of k-armys who are getting attacked by intl fans constantly and also for the sake of perspective – which may lessen the blow of their words for those hurt by them – i need to say this. the concept of colorism is alive and well in korea… it just isn’t the same as it is in the west. in the west – for the most part – we are more ethnically/racially diverse while korea is almost entirely racially/ethnically homogeneous. so how does this effect the meaning of colorism? well because one of the largest identifiable traits when looking at the differences between the world’s races n ethnicities is skin color, race/ethnicity will always be tied to skin color, especially in really diverse areas. in the west where we are consistently exposed to different races/ethnicities as part of our daily lives, a preference of skin color holds not only colorist implications but also racist implications. if some mayo dude said “i think darker skin is ugly on girls” we can safely assume hes a racist fuck on top of being colorist. however, since korea is homogenous, there isnt any real racist implications. let me elaborate: korea has issues with being racist against other poc, however in an interview discussing ideal types where the ideal type is already assumed to be at the very basis korean (or maybe another east asian ethnicity if you’re stretching it), the statement on skin color is directed at people of their shared race. so how is this less problematic? it is still problematic definitely – i’d like to make this clear – but in korea, the concept of skin color amongst koreans as a beauty standard isnt racially or ethnically motivated and therefore its more akin to saying “i prefer blue eyes over brown eyes on white girls” because they’re discussing a physical variance within their own race. in the end, it’s still colorist, but please try to understand that in korea the remarks arent as horrible. they still shouldn’t say that, and really, any discussion of skin color preferences is ugly, but it’s extremely important to be considerate of korean culture. intl fans forget constantly that we are guests to korean culture. if you were invited to someones house you wouldnt bust in there feeling entitled n doing whatever the fuck you want. you’d try and respect their rules and how they run their home. if you had a problem with something there, you’d politely ask them to accommodate you, explaining why that accommodation was necessary. you wouldnt fucking trash them for not having their house already equipped to your preference. thats incredibly selfish. this is the same way. you are guests to this culture, and while you shouldnt allow colorism to continue, this theme of entitlement amongst intl fans – especially when we have done very little to respect their culture; we demand they understand ours while continually paying theirs no regard – is really shamefully. i ask that people reading this do their best to be more considerate in the future. not everything is black n white… lots of things have grey area and we can afford to be more socially conscious. im pretty sure most k-fans have it about up to here dealing with koreaboos criticizing their culture… 

be fair

this is a short statement but i need to remind you all that most of the members were problematic in that interview and if you are only trashing namjoon you need to fucking stop. you are allowed to offended, of course – i was pretty bothered too seeing how im the opposite to namjoons ideal in every way, my bias who i’d fucking die for – but if your whole focus is “namjoon this and namjoon that” than youre being a biased ass and im gonna need you to sit down. if youre going to be mad, by all means, be mad, but dont fucking pretend the other members said nothing wrong. im sick of people pretending every member but namjoon is perfect and unproblematic. present day he’s probably the most un-problematic member since educating himself on racial issues, feminism, n lgbtq rights, making himself an advocate for them all while idols remain silent…. hmm…. but keeping pushing that “problematic member” agenda sure. yeah lets pretend the facts dont exist ok

for those who were hurt by the “interview” and to those who want to dismiss them

fans who read through the interview n realized they kinda fit their bias’ ideal type – esp in terms of skin color – please don’t make comments on how people need to “get over this”. for many fans, especially non light skinned poc, this really hurt. not only as a “i don’t fit my bias’ ideal type” but also as a betrayal of trust. many non light skinned poc have experienced some type of discrimination for their skin color and many had their sense of self confidence fucked over for it. its not just a “you dont think darker skin is beautiful, aw :(” its more of a, “you are someone i love and support and the fact that you’d call my skin color less attractive – the skin color for which i’ve had to struggle to find my own confidence in – just like so many others, feels like betrayal”. its really hurtful. so don’t be dismissive. you don’t understand. this isnt your discussion, im sorry.

and lastly, to the fans who were hurt by the interview. im sorry boo. im sorry that the industry you support continues to hurt you. im sorry someone you decided to love and support made you feel like that. please remember that the ideal type is such a flimsy concept. they really dont mean anything. those questions were grossly specific n they were so unnecessary, but at the end of the day, they are still made up preferences. the boys wouldn’t find you unattractive for not meeting the bits on their checklist – fuck no. attraction just doesnt work like that. no one falls in love with the person that hit everything on their little “ideal type” checklist. honestly, if you asked me to describe my ideal type n i just listed shit off the top of my head, it probably wouldnt add up to namjoon…. but in every way namjoon perfect to me. im fucking whipped. this is the same. dont take their ideals to heart, dont feel like anything on you needs to change. you are exactly the way you need to be, and dont ever let some guys “ideal type” make you feel any less. n if anyone every tries to tell you that you’re failing to meet their beauty standards… fucking kick them. fcuk them seriously. dont let this shit effect your self confidence. gross comments like that dont deserve a thought in your head

I'm so sic and tired of the same hp tropes. Have you read anything weird, cross? Not like, crack, but just off the beaten path? Please, I'm suffering here.

Hmm, well I haven’t had time to read all that much fanfic period lately but here are some that felt kind of… unique to me? Not exactly ‘weird’, just really good and not a trope I read all the time. Also included a few FBaWtFT fics so if those aren’t your cup of tea, just skip past the first four. Hope you enjoy :)

The Cigarette Case by AgentMalkere

Apparently even Gellert Grindelwald isn’t immune to a niffler’s sticky paws.

(In which Newt was not expecting to find Percival Graves in a stolen cigarette case.)

Menagerie by prosodiical

Newt comes to New York with only one purpose in mind: find out what happened to the real Percival Graves.

They’ve tried it the hard way; Theseus has been pressing MACUSA for weeks, but they won’t do anything against the word of Graves himself. Newt’s approach is a last-resort, but he’ll do anything to save the man he loves, and so - he opens his case.

Dearly Beloved by prosodiical

or: Five times Percival Graves said he was married, and one time Tina believed him.

When Director Graves starts elaborating on his supposed husband, the entire department is even more certain he doesn’t exist - an author and a dragon tamer, who’s somehow captured a creature that can kill a hundred wizards at a time? And what sort of name is Newt, anyway?

Tina’s one of them - at least, until Newt Scamander, magizoologist, shows up in New York and lets a Niffler loose. And when he realises Graves has been replaced by an imposter, things only get more complicated from there.

The Graves Identity by Mishafied

He doesn’t remember who he is or how he ended up injured in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness; all he knows is his name is Percival, and he owes his life to the shy, redheaded zoologist who saved him. But unfortunately, just because he doesn’t remember his past doesn’t mean it can’t come back to haunt him.

This is the story of how Percival got his happily ever after, and then had to fight to keep it.

Hogwarts, to welcome you home by gedsparrowhawk (FaceChanger)

“You understand, Professor,” Harry began, after a moment, “that I don’t have my N.E.W.T.s. I don’t even have my O.W.L.s. Between everything I never had a chance the first time around, and then afterwards there didn’t seem to be much point. Hermione argued for it, of course, but I was so tired of Britain. So technically, I am completely unqualified for the position.”

“Quite a way to begin an interview, Mr. Potter,” McGonagall said dryly.

Or, three years after the war, Harry Potter becomes Hogwarts’ newest Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.

The Sum of Their Parts by holdmybeer

For Teddy Lupin, Harry Potter would become a Dark Lord. For Teddy Lupin, Harry Potter would take down the Ministry or die trying. He should have known that Hermione and Ron wouldn’t let him do it alone.

Charlotte the Great and Powerful by Evandar

Her whole life has been about gaining power through struggle and sacrifice and manipulation of the only thing she has going for her (Charlotte’s a terrible person beneath the pretty face and she knows it).

Charlotte wants to be more than the girl from the cupboard and she’s not above using others to gain power.

Gelosaþ in Écnesse by Batsutousai

Caught in the backlash of Voldemort’s Killing Curse, Harry is thrown through time to a world so very different from his own.

The Love of a Good Wizard by SweetSorcery

History of Magic has something to teach after all, and two resourceful students decide that the key to having any future at all lies in the past, and in Tom Riddle’s heart. Assuming he has one.

Influence of Souls by Nia_River

He stared at his journal, a creation into which he had poured his memories and dreams, his heart and … soul. Now, to send it to where it needed to be.

Hell To Raise by Tozette

All Harry knew that day was that his Aunt Petunia had begun to scream. When he came from his cupboard to see what was wrong, he found her sitting pale and distraught on the spotless kitchen tiles. She was gibbering as that evening’s three-kilogram chicken dinner did a rather acrobatic tap-dancing lap of the room, squawked loudly, and then fled through the window and out into the back yard.

—————-

In which Harry Potter animates the dead. Dumbledore disapproves. Other forces… not so much.

Don’t Fuck With Florists (They’ll Fuck You Up) by MayMarlow

Unsatisfied with his post-war life, Harry decides to get to the root of all of his problems when that root was still working at Borgin and Burkes shop in the late 40s. He’s the Master of Death, damn it, he can do what he wants for once in his life.

Tom Riddle isn’t particularly happy about working at a small, dingy shop for magical artifacts, no matter how interesting those artifacts are. He’s even less happy when an insufferable stranger sets up the most obnoxious flower shop right across the street.

What follows would be a romantic comedy, if it weren’t for politics.

the girl who lived (again) by dirgewithoutmusic

Peeves, though he was nasty about everything else–ickle firsties and orphan girls–got it immediately. For all six years of Harry’s Hogwarts tenure, he dropped water balloons on the heads of anyone who misgendered her.

Professor Binns never quite figured it out, but he didn’t know any student’s name. Nearly Headless Nick gallantly and somewhat awkwardly called her lady and tried to hold open doors for her, despite the fact that he couldn’t open them.

Snape called Harry “Mr. Potter” for all seven years that he was in Harry’s life. Around year three, Ron stopped counting the detentions he got for his increasingly sarcastic responses to this.

Rise Above by Straight_Outta_Hobbiton

For once, Harry has taken advantage of his enormous wealth and used it to talk to a solicitor. He finds out a few things— namely, the fact that his participation in the Triwizard Tournament has rendered him an emancipated minor and the last Lord of the Potters. Being the Lord of the Potters means a lot of things, but most importantly, it means Harry can get the hell outta dodge, and his friends can come along, too.

Thus begins the new life of the Golden Trio. They’re in America, they’re in California, they’re in Berkeley. Let the good times roll.

Harry Potter and the Really Round-About Way of Finding a Horcrux by floweringjudas (manipulant)

One should know better than to involve oneself in Weasley Family Skirmishes, even as a messenger. It always ends badly. …Or really well, depending on your perspective.

A Lightning’s Tale by Riddle_Master_101

Harry Potter is abruptly thrown into a different world upon receiving his letter from Hogwarts. Danger stalks him at every turn, light and dark are locked in a constant, eternal battle, and weaving it all together is this substance called magic…

interviewer: how annoying is ryan reynolds on set?

jake gyllenhaal: i would say he’s really not annoying at all… he’s like… he’s actually the best… he’s the best personality on set and he makes everybody feel pretty great and his energy, which i deeply believe in, it’s like… it infects the whole… in like a… in like a… like a sort of… hu-… in like a very… in like a… think about… think about it like an epidemic. uhm… like of… of mass proportions. that’s what his personality’s like… but positive.

anonymous asked:

We all know Darren's not good at hiding his true feelings since his gestures always gave things away. To add up, I don't think Chuck's good at it either. I started noticing it with Mario interviews when the many moons comment came out and again there's a mention of the PR house during the radio show Chuck either looked away or ducked his head down looking uncomfortable as hell with some sort of "yeah I don't know anything about it don't ask me" awkward smile...

The thing about Chuck, he KNOWS Darren. He knows the truth.  He spends substantial time with Darren’s actual partner.  

But he probably was not, until recently, all that familiar with PR Darren. He certainly hasn’t witnessed it up close. And Chuck doesn’t strike me as one who runs out and buys the magazines and newspapers D is featured in.  There is no need, anything he want to know he can ask his brother and he is certainly going to get a much more honest answer by asking him directly.  

So I think its a bit of a shock almost to see Darren in action and how easily he lies. But I agree 100%, his body language is very telling.  You can tell he is looking at Darren and screaming “Bullshit” in his head.  And considering he has been prepped and knows what questions are coming, its pretty great that he is not even trying to mask his feelings when this is happening.

I have to say, watching the CG interviews and promos, I have a whole new respect and appreciation for the dynamic between Chuck and Darren.

No Job is Worthless

Okay friends, this has nothing to do with writing and everything to do with me getting up on the proverbial soapbox, so if you’re here for the writing, feel free to move right on by.

Mkay, now that we’ve got everyone here, let’s begin.

‘Tis that time of year again: summer jobs/internships/co-ops, you name it. And some of you probably slunk off back home because (once again?) you didn’t land anything. You spent all year in classes, worked your butt off, applied to everything and anything that looked remotely related to those things you were learning in classes…

And you got nothing.

Nothing but form rejection letters from careers sites, interviews that never got back to you, and a whole bunch of disappointed hopes.

Or, potentially worse, you have that shiny new degree in your hands, fresh from the printers and not even framed yet, and you have nothing. No job prospects, no hopes other than maybe one of those applications you filled out might come back any day now. But in the meantime you have bills to pay, parents/family members to answer to, and potentially a mountain of student debt breathing down your neck.

Trust me, I’ve been there.

My major in college was chemical engineering. It was a pretty great school, does a lot of cutting edge research. Highly selective, the whole thing.

I worked for 3/3 summers in college, plus on campus during the year. (Career Center, just doing glorified cut/paste type things on a computer.)

Here’s my summer jobs:

  • Pool technician at a local amusement park (post Freshman/pre Sophomore)
  • Research at a lab on campus (post Sophomore/pre Junior)
  • Cashier at an arts & craft store (post Junior/pre Senior)

 

They sound really relevant to my field right? I was putting my degree to some use? Maybe?

Not really. Let’s break them down.

MD's Top Med School Interview Tips

All of these tips are based on my own experience with 3 Medical School Interviews this year, if you have any more suggestions feel free to reblog and add them. My askbox is also open if you have any questions. 😊

{Interview Prep - A couple weeks before}

1. PREPARE WITH A FRIEND 👯: Try to find a person you trust and get along with to help you prepare. My friend and I met up once a week for a couple weeks to go over potential interview questions and MMI scenarios. We pooled resources and each looked online and in prep books for possible questions. Together we went through a ton of ethical situations and talked about pros and cons of everything. It was great to have a safe space with a friend to explore healthcare issues and just by having these conversations I felt more comfortable with the language and opinions that are associated with medical topics. [Note: make sure you and your friend aren’t coming up with the SAME answers for questions. The point of this is to practice expressing your point of view and answers with a person you are comfortable with]

2. KNOW YOUR CV 📄: Pretty much every interview (no matter what format) will have questions about YOU. So in addition to knowing answers for the basic questions (Why do you want to be a doctor? Etc..) make sure you can articulate your experiences, what you’ve learned from them, challenges you’ve had and why these skills and experiences will help you with a career in Medicine. Some schools release lists of attributes they look for in prospective applicants, so try to figure out how your experiences exemplify those qualities.

3. KNOW WHAT THE INTERVIEW FORMAT WILL BE 🔎: You will likely want to prepare differently if you are doing an MMI or more situation based interview compared to a panel interview. Also it’s good to know if the interviewers will have access to your application information or not.

4. PRACTICE WITH A PRO 💼: If your school has a career centre or Pre-Med club, try going to an interview workshop to get individualized feedback from someone who has practice interviewing lots of people. Another option is to ask your boss (wherever you work) if they would be willing to run through a mock interview with you. I know this may not be possible everywhere but it was super helpful for me to get feedback from my boss because she has interviewed hundreds of people over the years. Even though she isn’t involved in anything medical there are certain things that can make or break any interview and it’s good to have someone point that out to you. I felt super prepared after doing this!

5. READ LOTS 📚: Stay informed about current issues, healthcare related and otherwise. You may be asked for your opinion on something and while you may not need to know exact details it’s a good idea to have a general sense of big events/issues happening in the world. Also if you’re interested in Medicine it’s a great idea to read some books about it! I personally loved the following Atul Gawande books: Being Mortal, Complications, Checklist Manifesto, and Better. Don’t forget to read whatever it is YOU find interesting, not just Medical stuff, it’s important to pursue other interests too. [ps. Following lots of Medblrs helped me to be aware of a lot of topics that may or may not have been discussed in my interviews]

6. THE OUTFIT 👔: Find something that makes you feel professional and awesome. Whether you are buying an outfit, borrowing clothes from a friend or wearing something you already own, make sure it fits and you are comfortable. My parents bought me my first suit for Christmas for me to wear to my interviews. I wore a black pencil skirt with a black blazer and a white blouse (it didn’t have a collar but it had a conservative neckline and a ruffle detail in the front), black heels and stud earrings. I looked kind of plain, but I felt professional and confident. I knew my personality would show through in my attitude not my clothes, however other people may want to wear something more stylish and that’s okay - but I’d advise staying on the more conservative side.

{The Interview}

1. ORGANIZATION ✔️: Make sure you’ve made appropriate travel arrangements so you can get to your interview early in the *least stressful* way possible. You may or may not want certain family members to be around you during that time and that’s okay. Do whatever is going to make you feel the most calm and confident.

2. MANAGE YOUR ENERGY 😴: Do your best to relax and get a good night’s sleep before (easier said than done - I know!!). Do a light work out the night before or the morning of- whatever you usually do! Schedule the day so you’re doing a tour of the school’s campus AFTER your interview if possible so you can just relax and won’t be tired for your interview. Eat a good breakfast and potentially bring a snack with you in your bag if you’re allowed to and you’re going to be there for a long day. I didn’t realize how long I would be without food for one of my interviews and I was SO HUNGRY and almost lightheaded by the time my interview got started because I didn’t realize we would have to sit through 2 hours of presentations beforehand. Thankfully I made it through the interview but I felt pretty weak and shaky after because I hadn’t eaten for hours.

3. OTHER APPLICANTS 😊: I was pleasantly surprised by how nice and friendly everyone else was. It was actually a highlight of the whole interview experience to talk to the applicants and hear about their backgrounds. I met engineers, theatre majors, athletes, pharmacists, research prodigies, 30 year olds switching careers, applicants from small towns and big cities, people working on Masters, PhD’s and other undergraduate students with traditional and non traditional degrees. Everyone was great and it was cool to feel like we’re all in this together. I could totally see these people being my future friends and colleagues so it was great to chat, but obviously if people prefer to be quiet and focus on their interview that is okay too! Do what’s best for you, but be nice to people. [ps. Don’t be intimidated by other people’s accomplishments if they bring them up. The admissions committee wanted YOU to be there for a reason. Another person’s awesomeness doesn’t make you any less awesome]

4. THE INTERVIEW 🌻: Go in there with confidence knowing that you’ve made it so far in the application process. This is a big and exciting step and no matter what it’s a huge accomplishment just to be invited. The admissions committee wants you to be awesome, and you’ve been preparing for this moment for a long time so relax and try to enjoy it as much as possible! This is an exciting day!! You get to talk about Medicine and yourself and things you are passionate about! You get to meet other great applicants who could be your friends and colleagues one day! You get to meet current students and faculty at the school and learn about their experiences and ask questions!! Despite stress, nerves and anxiety YOU GET the chance to interview at a medical school!! This is awesome and exciting and I am proud of you!! ✨✨✨

jana0898  asked:

I'm loving all your theories/thoughts about the show but i would be very interested to know what ending you would be REALLY disappointed with? Have you read Any theories that you would just hate as the ending of pll? (Sorry for my bad English I'm from Germany :D)

Thanks!

Basically anything to do with the whole show being a dream from that night in the barn, or Aria writing a book. Anything that implies this whole story never happened, I hate. But the cast (I think Ian and Keegan?) have mentioned these ‘theories’ in interviews and have mocked them, which means we’re pretty safe. This won’t happen, but still, Keegan is known for lying so you never know.

In terms of what could actually happen - anything to do with a minor character being A. Like Sabrina, Furey, Sydney, Addison, etc. People like that exist just to take up screen time while we get to the big reveal. If they end up being THE big reveal, I will genuinely regret every minute I invested into this show.

Your English is great!!

This Isn’t Your Interview

Warning: fluff

A/N: this is much shorter than I wanted it to be, sorry. Also, reader is around the age of 2 or 3

Summary: Jensen has an interview and brings his daughter with him and she keeps saying adorable stuff and answering questions.

Jensen sat in the leather chair with the tiny toddler girl in his lap, ready to start his interview for Entertainment Weekly. The interviewer sat across from him and smiled at the small child. “Let’s get started, shall we!”

Multiple questions later y/n began to make random noises trying to get her dad’s attention. “So Jensen, how is the whole single parent thing working out? You seem to be doing pretty well.” Both Jensen and the interviewer laughed, but before he could even answer, y/n was shouting with her hands on her hips. “My daddy does a great job of taking care of me!” The small child said, full of sass.

“I expected nothing less of him.” The interviewer laughed at the little girl’s response. “Now Jensen, would you ever consider letting y/n being on the show?” At the mention of her father’s show, y/n’s head peeked up and she gasped. “That would be fun!” She clapped her hands together. “I would get to work with Daddy and Uncle Jare-bear!” The little girl giggled as Jensen just stared at her in awe. “Ya know I’m supposed to be answering the questions, right?” He smiled down at y/n while trying not to laugh.

“Well since Miss y/n seems to enjoy having the spotlight, I think I should ask her a few questions.” The young Ackles looked up at her dad as if looking for a sign of approval, to which he solemnly nodded his head.

“Now Miss Ackles, have you ever been on set before?” “Actually I have. I go with daddy every time he’s there. I sit in the big girl chairs with Mister Singer while Daddy and Uncle Jared make scenes.” Y/n states in a professional tone.

A few more questions for the little girl and then she turns to her father. “When will daddy get to talk again?” She looked over at the interviewer with pure concern for her father. Both adults laughed at the cuteness of the toddler and then continued with the interview.

As the few final questions rolled through, Jensen’s baby girl stayed quiet so her dad could finish.

Then, the final question that y/n had been waiting for. “Now do you think y/n should be a major character in the and be an amazing badass hunter like her dad? Because this kid is gonna grow up to be a star I tell you.” The interviewer smiled at the twinkly eyed little girl. “Absolutely, yes, 100%, positive!” y/n yelled while jumping off her father’s lap.

“This is my interview ya know?” Jensen asked with a serious face even though you could tell he was trying not to laugh at his child’s cuteness.

“I think, one day she will be a huge star and on the show. And it’s obvious that she will be a badass.” Jensen proudly exclaimed while picking his daughter back up.

“Well there you have it folks!” The interviewer started off joyously. “That was Jensen and y/n Ackles here with Entertainment Weekly! I’m (insert random interviewer) and this was Entertainment news!”

Jensen and the interviewer stand up and shake hands and then he starts to walk away with his happy child in his arms. “You’re adorable, ya know that?” He questioned his child. “Yeah I know!” She sassed back at him. “You are definitely my kid.” Jensen and y/n drive home with smiles on their faces, happy that they had some great father daughter bonding time today.

“Thank you sir come again.”

“Thanks.” Zack spun around with a bag of fried chicken and potato wedges in his hand. “I really should get back to the apartment…” He mumbled to himself. “Oof!”

“Ow…A s-sorry!” A young boy with blond hair and purple eyes looked up at him before quickly running inside.

“Hmm…He looks familiar.” Zack shrugged before walking off to his campus. He really didn’t have any business to be there but he thought what the hell. He’d just people watch while he ate his lunch. It was pretty hectic at this time seeing as people were grabbing a bite before they headed home or back to class. Finding a seat in the far back Zack planted himself facing away from the sun before opening his mouth watering bag of deliciously, freshly fried, chicken.

“And he said that he’d call but you know how that went.”

“Frankly he’s such a hard ass. I heard the highest grade in his last class was a 70.”

“To think she was cheating on the test. It’s badass.”

“So he gave us the wrong book and now the bookstore is making us pay an extra $100 if not more!”

Zack chuckled as he listened in on other conversation’s making sure he made it look like he was looking at his phone. He heard about a girl who’s boyfriend was cheating and got some good dirt on some professor. He got a good biased view on some political issues. And he got to listen to a lot of stupid shit. After hearing it all he wasn’t jealous or upset that he didn’t have friends. But when he saw the people interacting, he couldn’t describe the feelings he felt in the pit of his stomach.

You got signed as a trainee at the blooming age of 13, since you were a toddler you loved to sing and dance, you would even make shows for your parents and siblings every sunday. You admit that it was hard and it needs patience and hard work but you honestly loved every minute of every day, the main reason was that all the hard work brought you one step closer to your dream, so you worked damn hard and became one of the best.

Your group ‘Pink Champagne’ debuted and it became a huge hit across Korea, you were the lead singer and your vocals could give goosebumps to every person that would hear it. You were always happy and cheerfull, you loved playing with the fans and you would always make time for them, your group was very humble and everyone kept their heads straight.

You were his celebrity crush from the start. You still remember the interview

“So have you met BTS?”

“No, but we would love too, they seem like very cool guys”

One of the members replied and you nodded.

“A member from BTS is a fan of a specific member”

“It’s got to be (y/n)”

“Why me?”

“Cause you are both crazy and… weird”

“Well let’s see the video, shall we?”

~So who is your ideal type?~

~That’s a question for J-hope~

Rap monster said with a sneaky smile as he turned to him. J-hope had this huge grin on his face that made him look adorable.

~I can openly admit that (y/n) from pink champagne is my ideal type~

~really? why do you like her?~

~She seems so positive and happy about everything, she is also very… pretty~

he said while blushing. Your members started teasing you and congratulating you

“So what do you have to say about this?”

“Well…. I don’t know. He looks like a great guy so… thank you”

—————————–

You met him during the MAMA awards. Your group was performing right after his, so when you had to rehearse the whole show to make sure everything was right you bumped into each other a lot. Everyone was right, he was as energetic as he seemed to be on interviews and just… life. You got along amazingly well and you started hanging out whenever your schedules allowed you too.

You don’t even know how you became a couple, it just came along the way. You would be hanging around and then you started flirting then kissing, then boom you were boyfriend and girlfriend.
You loved how sweet he was, he always took care of you and made you crack a smile no matter what.

————————–

You always liked rapping, but you were too scared to do it. You admired how brave Jimin was when she went to Unpretty Rapstar, it was something you wished you could do. Then Hyorin and Heize and Yezi. You were very close to Hyorin so you supported her a lot and talked to her on a daily bases

“Do you think I would be able to do it?”

“Of course, you are naturally talented. I believe you should give it a shot”

You nodded and spun your chair around. Hyorin always supported you and she even helped you on a lot of things. She was the first one to know that you would be on Unpretty Rapstar 4

———————————

Hoseok’s notification were blowing up, he wasn’t really able to catch up.

'Why is she doing this?’

'She is going to fail’

'J-hope needs to control his woman’

'Isn’t she a singer?’

'That she has a boyfreind who is a rapper, does not mean she is one’

'He should teach her how to do it’

'J-hope must be mortified’

'J-hope is her coach’

'I hope he can teach her how to not embarass herself’

What the hell? He didn’t really understand, so he went on google.

“Lead singer of Pink Champagne (y/n) on Unpretty Rapstar 4?”

“(y/n) confirms the rumours about Unpretty Rapstar”

He was stunned. He knew you liked rapping and you did rap sometimes, but he never thought you wanted to do it professionally. He wanted to help you

——————————

“Babe are you sure?”

“yes, why do you think I can do it?”

“No, no that’s not it. But do you know what you’re getting yourself into?”

“You’re calling me stupid now?”

“What? no”

You loved messing with him. You knew that his heart was at a good place, he was genuinely worried, both of you knew that girls can be very nasty and they won;t go easy on you.

“I’ve been practising every day, even Jessi came to give me tips”

“And that’s great but… you know that they might use my name as a weapon against you right?”

“And that’s why i’m practising, so I can bite back. You don’t believe me? let’s rap battle”

“What?”

He asked. You got up and got your phone searching for a beat. You found one and pressed play

“Do you want me to start?”

You questioned him. He got your phone and turned off the music immidiately

“I’m not battling you (y/n). How about I help you?”

“Like what?”

“Rap for me and I will give you tips. Rapping 101”

He pressed play again and waited for you to start. He could understand that you have been practising, you sounded much more confident and your rhymes were very smooth, but they were still minor mistakes you did

“You need to focus on your breath, you need to take quick breaths inbetween but without missing your beat. Also your voice gets a bit shaky, you have to work on staying on the beat and not let your voice get shaky”

“Ay Ay Captain”

You said very louldy and saluted him. he laughed and hugged you

“But you were very good. You’ve worked hard”

“Thank you baby, it means a lot”

“I love you”

“I love you too”

The cheers of the public were so warm… You could never forget that feeling. It was the first time ever you perform in Asia with your band and their excitement made you insanely happy. You were new on the business back then, you have just released your first album and it became extremely popular worldwide in just a couple weeks. You could not believe it, one day you were in your garage having fun with your best friends, just making what you love most, write music and the next day you are performing in a Korean talk show the same day as BTS, your favorite kpop group! It’s a crazy world in which we live in. You felt all the eyes on you, and you were blushing, it was so new to you, but since you were the only girl of the group you always received an especial attention.

13x09

A couple of days late but everything has truly sunk in, or been completely wiped from my memory…

1) How is it that the Grey Sloan staff always happen to be driving down a road whilst a lion’s crossing it, or a plane’s crashing over it, or a building’s collapsing onto it… Just show me the building collapsing- i don’t need a primary character present to witness that.

2) Be still my Jolex heart… They got a scene. Unreal. Pinch me. There are no fans more deserving of screentime than the Jolex fans, they’ve basically been starved for a year now. After exploding a storyline about abuse, they’ve since moved it at a snail’s pace - something I wouldn’t have a problem with if they’d beefed it up with a lot more realistic Jolex interactions. Jo’s little addition of “I don’t want you to think that it’s you. Ever.” gave me all the hope I need for Jolex to be married with kids in a couple of years.

3) Be still my Merlex heart… It’s just the two of them. She’ll be fine, she’s always fine. Except she won’t be. Not if he does this, because she’ll be the only one left standing.

4) With a disproportionate ratio of women to men, the thing the latter series of Greys has really missed is a good bromance. And no Jackson and Ben, I’m not buying yours. Step in: Owen and Riggs. A patient leads Owen to admit his own affair whilst with Cristina, and he sees light- Nathan is not the spawn of the devil. I cannot wait for your drink, I’ll be recording it from behind a magazine at the table next to you.

5) Everyone sticking up for Webber and fighting for him- YAS. He has the whole staff and fandom behind him let’s be honest! Eliza is ridiculously pretty, and I think her and Arizona have great potential, but if you’re kicking THE CHIEF out (sos Bailey, we’re still not there yet) to be able to do your job, it won’t fly babes.

6) Omelia, Omelia, Omelia. Owen wanted to go home and see his wife and all he got was a fucking note to tell him Amelia had done a runner. NOW, a couple of interviews with Kevin made it seem a bit bleak, but don’t think it’s their end. This isn’t how they end. I can’t go through another Carby (Carter and Abby from ER, props if you know that one) again. Basically, Caterina needed time off, the writers couldn’t think of anything better so she’s gone for now. This is not the end though. And if it is, this is the reason fanfiction exists.

7) Oh, in other news, a building collapses, it’s the landlords fault, a victim’s mum tries to strangle him in revenge, Alex is left on a cliffhanger where he’s about to hand himself in, and Ben Warren became a priest.

Summary:

This episode was not what was advertised on the tin. Take it back and return Amelia Shepherd please thank you bye.

  [Week 2 - Chai Noir]

In the middle of the previous quarter, Marinette had been dragged along to a café at the edge of downtown by her cousin, Bridgette.

While it did get her into a regular schedule for studying, she was at least little concerned at how well Bridgette knew her crush’s schedule (“oh come on, if you were in my shoes I bet you’d be even worse!” She objected once, to which Marinette neither agreed or denied.) and the day that the shifts were shuffled around, the grumpy barista was one night replaced with a much nicer, much more familiar face.

Enter Adrien Agreste, model and son of her favorite designer.

So maybe Bridgette wasn’t that wrong about the whole “you’d be worse” thing. Not that she’d admit it anyway; as far as her cousin knew, she was just sticking to the routine she was forced into.

Marinette bought her drinks before he came in for his shift so she wouldn’t be a stuttering mess at the register, and managed only a glance when he came in before pondering on her project’s theme for her class on week 2 of the quarter. It was a seminar on generating inspiration from the world around you, which came easy to her in collége. The class was encouraging everyone to try something new outside of their normal sources of inspiration.

Pick a series of anything and create a portfolio for each thing, including a photo of the source for each piece.

The only question was…what to pick?

Turns out fate had plans for her and her final project when she heard a yell and the sound of someone crashing to the ground.

Her first words to him ended up being, “A-are you okay?!” when he laughed himself so hard he fell off of the stepladder he was on.

Not the words she would have expected, but at least they came out clearly. Even the thought of ordering a drink while he was at the counter tied up her tongue and she couldn’t understand why. Yes, he is son to Gabriel Agreste, her idol, but he’s just another student here working a food service job like most everyone else on campus. Adrien Agreste is a normal person among normal people now.

The magical powers-that-be decided he should be treated as a normal person too, because when she looked up and saw the blackboard, her nerves dissipated almost instantly.

In neat letters the blackboard read “Chai Noir.”

That’s all it took for her former celebrity crush to crack. It didn’t matter if he was cute; one punner in her life was already too much. She had to admit though, it was a good pun for the fact that the drink matched her partner.

Marinette felt a little bad for laughing at Adrien’s drawing skills, but she was more than happy to fix it for him. She barely remembered to pull up a photo for reference since she knew her partner’s face and messy long hair like the back of her hand.

Her fumble when she introduced herself aside, talking to him soon felt like easy banter like with Chat Noir or Alya. His body language was awkward and stiff at first even when his speech wasn’t, she noticed, as if he never talked to people he met this soon this much. He never showed any sign of not wanting her company, so she stayed past closing time to talk with him and get her last drink for the night.

She smiled to herself as she started pedaling. Maybe they were actually meant to meet.

When she arrived at home that night, Marinette took a long sip of the drink as she dropped her bag on the beanbag chair.

She started doodling an idea she had the other day - a cute poncho with a fluffy trim that was light enough to wear with most weather. The hoodie cords had puffballs at the ends, matching the trim, and the whole thing would pair well with cute shorts or leggings.

The drink was nearly finished when she started painting it in with her cheap watercolors. She had drawn herself in the outfit, so navy was dabbed onto her hair and peach for her skin. Boots and shorts were easy with warm brown and light blue tones, but when she got to the poncho itself, she wasn’t sure exactly what color she wanted.

That is, until she took the lid off of her coffee cup to check how much of the Chai Noir she had left.

Marinette took one last sip, poured the remaining drink in the overturned lid and dipped her clean brush in it.

Guitar Queer-O

This is one of my faves because it parrallell’s Trey’s relationship with Matt.

Trey/Stan is the “talented” one out of the two and Matt/Kyle is “holding him back”. People often say that Matt doesn’t really do anything, that it is Trey who writes everything etc. (Of course we all know that Matt actually does a whole lot more than just keep Trey company) but what is important to Trey/Stan is doing it all with their best friend. Both Trey and Matt have often said that South Park is the energy between the two of them. First and foremost, South Park is simply the product of a close friendship, and would not exist were it not for their close relationship and the chemistry between them.

“I thought I was having a great time because I was getting signed by managers and, going to big sex and coke parties, but, then I realized, I was having fun because I was doing all that…with my best friend” - Stan

I mean it’s clear that the reason the dialogue between Stan and Kyle seems so genuine here is because it is pretty much how Trey actually feels. And although Matt actually does a whole lot, like take care of the business side of things, arrange and do interviews, make sure the episodes get done on time etc, to Trey it’s all about their friendship. And he could not do it without the support of Matt.

And while we are at it, let’s not forget how friendship has been a running theme through much of their work. It has cropped up on several other occasions in South Park, it is pretty much central to the storyline in Book of Mormon, Baseketball and even Team America.

Basically Trey just really loves his Super BFF.

I had a dream that I was a lowly scribe in this Middle Earth-esque world and had been employed by the high queen to pen her life story. The queen, played by Antonia Thomas, was from actual reality and used to be a drugged-out, wild, rich brat, so her lack of manners and poise and the way she talks with her husband, the terrifying and temperamental Crimson King (“Woman, you are late for your appointment” “Call me that again and I swear to fucking God I will rip your balls off and wear them on my goddamn crown, dear”), pretty much shocks me to the core. But we go ahead with the interview anyway. 

“You’re going to start with ‘Once upon a time,’ right?”
“Why would I do that, your highness?”
“All great stories start that way.”
“Forgive me, majesty, but they do not.”
“No, trust me, they do.”
“They do not.”
“Oh my god, shut up, they do.”
“I have never heard such a phrase.”
“Must not have heard a lot of great stories, then. Okay, let’s start. You ready? All right. Once upon a time, this whole bullshit thing started when I was completely off my tits on cocaine and crashed my car into my dad’s bank doing ninety.”

Okay, i thought of a film crew doing an inside tour/ mini doc of the three exy teams (foxes, ravens,trojans):
The ravens:
•They take it completely serious. they can’t put their reputation on the line.

•a lot of shots of them completely drills perfectly.

•everyone on camera is clean and dressing to the 10’s in the latest fashion. no hair is out of place.

•every interview with one of the players is once again perfect. these people have to be trained by a media coach.

•then there was a whole spiel about the history of exy which included the moriyamas, and lil’ kevin.


the trojans:
•(personally, i feel like the trojans are like the all american team)

•they show footage of tailgate parties and talked their fans.

•the interviews with the team was great because they all got along pretty well. •there was a whole segment about the trojan’s trophy room. •they showed some of their drills which of course were flawless.


the foxes:

• a week before the camera came, kevin was lecturing the team about making everyone look good. “since they are the champs of last year and need to act like it”

•it first the filming went great. they filmed some drills and luckily everyone was on board (even Andrew) with trying to make a good impression.

•but the one on one interviews did not end well.

•Andrew (ofc) said no and went to the roof for a quick smoke.

•Dan, Allison, Matt, and Renee did okay because they are still unproblematic favs.

•They asked Aaron about his relationship with his brother, and he just said they were on good terms and walked out.

•Nicky was soaking up the camera time because he has things to say and he is very photogenic.

•The Queen Kevin has become his alter ego aka “Media Kevin” (yes, i know its so original)

•really hyping up about the freshman’s potential, and that he is glad to play at palmetto state and that wymack is one of the greatest men he has ever met.

•Neil “attitude problem” josten went off after they asked how he could be an a relationship with someone like Andrew. and then he finished off with “but i know we will have a great season this year,” and then walked off.

•but the some of foxes attempt to do some pranking off camera with a bucket of honey and a confetti canon. [they got caught because it may have hit the wrong target, which may have been someone on the crew]

•also someone switched the exy hi lights with finding Nemo, so when they were supposed to a short clip of the foxes studying their opponents it just ended with Nemo touching the butt.

✨In Which an Interviewer Insults Justin’s Girl✨

The door to our dressing room slams shut and once inside Justin begins to pace back and forth.

“How fucking unprofessional” he grumbles raking an agitated hand through his hair and letting out a deep breath. I’m standing in front of a full length mirror trying desperately to smooth my dress over the three month old baby bump that makes the designer garb just a bit tighter. Justin and I had decided to let Vogue cover our pregnancy since they’d done such a great job with our wedding. It had been a beautiful shoot what with Justin kissing and touching my belly for the photos and the suit they’d put him in had been the icing on the cake. Though, the interview got pretty rocky pretty fast when a young, amateur journalist sat down with us.

“ She fucking hit on me the whole time” Justin fumed putting a stop to his pacing to take a seat on the couch. I’m caressing my belly and waiting  for him to calm down a bit. I eye Justin from the mirror and see that he’s composing a text on his phone, most likely to Anna Wintour to express his rage. He taps away at his phone and I continue to let that stupid little girl’s digs at me swirl around in my mind.

“I’m not fat I’m pregnant” I say after the silence begins to irk me and Justin looks at me with a confused expression,

“that little bitch called you fat?” He asks in astonishment and I nod my head.

“I think you were still caught up on the fact that she brought up Selena” he nods and goes right back to texting with renewed vigor.

“She brought Gigi up too” Justin says under his breath and I nod, one of our closest friends had been caught up in the lame ass interviewer’s crossfire.

“She literally told me that Gigi gained zero weight during her pregnancy and then she alluded to the fact that I looked like a whale, like what the actual fuck” Justin runs tired hands over his face and sighs before walking over to be and placing his arms around my waist.

“You’re the most beautiful woman in the world Kenna, I’m sorry that this was such a shitty day I was just super excited to let everyone know about our baby plans shit today sucked” I take his palms and place them against my belly and he smiles against my neck.

“We got some really gorgeous photos out of it babe, and don’t worry I’m sure we’ll get a redo interview” he places a few pecks along my jugular and pauses when a tiny movement comes from my belly.

“See someone had a good time,” I say and the baby kicks again as if agreeing with me. Justin follows the movement and sighs happily before closing his eyes but suddenly they snap open and he turns me around in his arms.

“Wait a minute, you were going to reveal the gender to me at the end of the interview” I bite my lip and curse internally because I was secretly loving keeping this secret from Justin. I sigh and wrap my arms around his neck,

“Can’t you wait say… six more months?” He picks me up bridal style then and carefully sets me on the couch, standing in front of me with crossed arms.

“This is killing me Ken!” He says and I almost believe him because his eyes have just the right amount of strain.

“Fine.” His eyes nearly pop out of his head as his jaw drops,

“fine?” He echoes and I nod cooly.

“Fine. I’ll tell you what this baby is” he sits next to me on the couch eagerly and wraps his arms around me careful to put his hands right on my tummy.

“So for a girl we were thinking Ella Jane,” Justin does a huge intake of breath and holds my tummy a bit tighter,

“And Ella Jane  is a great name but unfortunately Ella would like to be Drew Jared Bieber” Justin is frozen in shock for a few moments before he gets to his knees and my face in his hands.

“We’re going to have a boy?” I nod and try not to let my hormonal pregnancy tears stream down my face as my mascara had been expertly applied.

“Holy shit we’re having a baby. A boy one” this cracks me the hell up and he soon joins in with a deep chuckle.

“ Yeah a boy one,” I confirm and he gives me the sweetest, gentlest kiss before hugging me in a vice grip.

“Thank you Kenna,” I snort and come up with a smart ass remark,

“I mean, you helped” I say childishly and he pulls at my earlobe with his teeth.

“Well today has taught me one thing” I look at him with curiosity and he checks his phone,

“Vogue will not be getting the first pictures of Drew” I nod before sealing this statement with a kiss.

The King Lists

My thoughts (not that anyone asked for them, but…)

I think the boys did the best they could with the material they were given to work with. Obviously there are some things they cannot say which limits them a lot, and their other alternative would have been to just have awkward silence following every question (which they actually did a couple times).  

Clearly this was MM/HJPR’s big attempt to deny everything and try to undo the whole last week. They failed. The boys managed to deflect almost all of it, and the gains they made last week stand.

Also nearly everything Ben asked is old news; there wasn’t anything I heard in that interview that’s remotely newsworthy which quite possibly means there won’t be articles about it which means the current stories in the press (Harry’s comment and Louis wearing the supportive Apple logo) will likely (maybe? possibly?) be the ones that stay in the press.

A couple of individual things:

Harry and Niall fist-bumping and laughing through the girlfriend question was great - it makes me think they’ve reached a point where, though still not their favorite topic, questions about it don’t bother them as much - they’ve turned it into a joke.

Zayn talks lower than the others, and I had a hard time hearing him through my speakers, but he handled questions well I thought.

Liam really took a few for the team and carried a lot of the worst questions. 

Niall really seemed to be trying to keep Harry (and the whole interview) in a lighter mood.

Harry did a great job of deflecting when necessary and holding his own. It was crystal clear that he knows how to work an interview and give the answer he wants to give. Further proof (as though it was really needed at this point) that his comment during ODE wasn’t a throwaway joke. He said what he meant to say. I’m also pretty sure he said there are some rumors he quite likes. Just sayin’.

Louis - I felt so bad for him. Ben just kept pushing and pushing. Someone else mentioned it was like an interrogation, and that is completely accurate. He kept control, but that interview was NOT fun for him. Honestly I think his “we have some great girls” may have been him trying to just get that over with, but Ben just kept on with rumors and fanfic and all those loaded topics. If I were Louis I’d have beaten him with a mic stand.

Ben - all I have to say about Ben is that he sucks even more than I thought (which I would have said was impossible). He’s a talentless sellout, and I hope he goes when Modest does.
