Because I have a lot of free time and I spend it rewatching LOON∆ MVs, I’ve began to notice some details I hadn’t seem at first glance. This theory is something I thought of after watching too much Choerry’s MV.
Also, this theory goes agains the theory that Choerry is the link between the cute and the girl crush LOON∆VERSES.
So, everyone remembers the scene where Choerry finds some round mirrors on the grass, right? I’m calling that place the Mirror Realm for better interpretation and to help everyone to not get lost in this theory.
Ok, since the mirrors positions didn’t remind me of anything, I decided to count them. And there is 12 of them! 12! LOON∆ will be composed of 12 members and there is 12 mirrors on the Mirror Realm, of course.
Now, for me to explain a little better my theory, I have to briefly tell you a bit of Love Cherry Motion storyline:
Choerry seems to be an ordinary girl, who decided to visit her friends HaSeul and YeoJin. They play together during their summer vacations, having plenty of good time. Till Choerry eats a cherry, that makes her dreams about this other world. When she wakes up, she’s not with her friends anymore. The place she seems to be is abandoned. A reflection calls her attention and when she looks to find where comes the reflection, she founds a blonde girl (since the image is blurry we don’t know if it’s Kim Lip or JinSoul), who runs aways. Choerry follows the mysterious girl and end up at the Mirror Realm. At this part, she seems to look through every mirror, but all of them seems normal. Till she finds her mirrors, who gives her a cherry. And let’s face it, if you were in her position, you would also find it very strange.
Since it seems she only find her own mirror intriguing and the others mirrors to be normal ones, I believe that each mirrors can only work with their correlated member. As I said before, there is 12 mirrors, so this theory might be right.
“But, Mirella, what’s in the other side of the mirror?” you ask me. And let me tell you that the MV itself give us the answer:
For now on I will can the scenario (from the scene above) the Inside World and the scenario where Choerry was living her ordinary life as the Outside World.
As you can see in the image, the Inside World is rather different from the Outside, but it has his points. Choerry from the Inside is in the same pose and wearing the same clothes as the Choerry from the Outside, so it proves that was in fact Choerry from Inside who gaves the cherry. Also, I believe the upside down tree is there to represent and make an illusion. Who can’t that be? Choerry from the Outside World is in the middle of the nature, and since the Inside World seems to be focused only on the colour, the tree is up there to simulate nature, when the Choerry from the Outside World looks through the glass and see the reflection of the nature around her.
Now to the main point (that I already told): this Inside Worlds is focused on the colour. In Choerry’s case, the purple color. It represents her essence.
Now back to the MV’s storyline: Outside Choerry accept the cherry from Inside Choerry and eats it. The cherry seems to be some kind of key to knowledge, to find her essence. I believe that because after that scene, the nature from the Outside World, that was green, turns into purple. That’s how Choerry is seeing the world from now on. She passed through a transformation and is now able to see the world differently, based on her essence.
Now following this theory of mine, I believe that Kim Lip and JinSoul passed through the same process, we don’t know when. They found the Mirror Realm, accepted a gift from their Inside selves and discovered their Red and Blue essence.
Now, what will happen in the future is unclear. Are the previous member (HeeJin, HyunJin, HaSeul, YeoJin and Vivi) also going to find this Mirror Realm and discover their true colors? And what are the future member to debut going to tell us?
PS: about the begin of Cherry Love Motion MV, where Choerry is playing with her friends, eats the cherry, dreams and wakes up in another place: I think there is two possibilities here. Or all the begin was a dream and she truly wakes up at the abandoned place, or she was with her friends but she slept for a really long time (let’s say years) and her friends abandoned her there.
Using source PNGs from here, I was playing with the idea of multiple copies of a shape, because that’s what I saw in the shadows that I created for “Circular Associations - B - Multi-Shadow“. How did I make this one? I took that first plane, and applied an Array Modifier, using an Object offset, which translated and rotated each instance. Then it was a matter of adding some Glare and playing with Curves on that output to produce the blingy result we see here.
More variations incoming… but… uhh… I don’t know how many of those will be able to top this one. The Processing designs get a little more intricate, but I’ll have to get really creative with the Blender/post processing parts of those ones to reach the high standard this variation has set.
Guillermo del Toro Gómez born October 9, 1964, is a Mexican American film director, screenwriter, producer and novelist. In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as the gothic horror film The Devil’s Backbone (2001), and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and more mainstream American action movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II (2002), the supernatural superhero film Hellboy (2004), its sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008), and the science fiction monster film Pacific Rim (2013). His latest film, The Shape of Water, won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and is scheduled for an American release on December 8, 2017.
In addition to his directing works, del Toro is a prolific producer, his producing works including acclaimed and successful films such as The Orphanage (2007), Julia’s Eyes (2010), Biutiful (2010), Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011), Puss in Boots (2011), and Mama (2013). He was originally chosen by Peter Jackson to direct The Hobbit films; he left the project due to production problems but was still credited as co-writer for his numerous contributions to the script.
Del Toro’s work is characterised by a strong connection to fairy tales and horror, with an effort to infuse visual or poetic beauty. He has a lifelong fascination with monsters, which he considers symbols of great power. Del Toro is known for his use of insectile and religious imagery, the themes of Catholicism and celebrating imperfection, underworld and clockwork motifs, practical special effects, dominant amber lighting, and his frequent collaborations with actors Ron Perlman and Doug Jones. He is also friends with fellow Mexican directors Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu, collectively known as “The Three Amigos of Cinema”.
When del Toro was about eight years old, he began experimenting with his father’s Super 8 camera, making short films with Planet of the Apes toys and other objects. One short focused on a "serial killer potato” with ambitions of world domination; it murdered del Toro’s mother and brothers before stepping outside and being crushed by a car. Del Toro made about 10 short films before his first feature, including one titled Matilde, but only the last two, Doña Lupe and Geometria, have been made available. He also wrote four and directed five episodes of the cult series La Hora Marcada, along with other Mexican filmmakers such as Emmanuel Lubezki and Alfonso Cuarón.
Del Toro studied special effects and make-up with special-effects artist Dick Smith. He spent 10 years as a special-effects make-up designer and formed his own company, Necropia. He also co-founded the Guadalajara International Film Festival. Later in his directing career, he formed his own production company, the Tequila Gang.
In 1997, at the age of 33, Guillermo was given a $30 million budget from Miramax Films to shoot another film, Mimic. During this time, his father, automotive entrepreneur Federico del Toro, was kidnapped in Guadalajara. Del Toro’s family had to pay twice the amount originally asked. The event prompted del Toro, his parents, and his siblings to move abroad. In an interview with Time magazine, he said this about the kidnapping of his father: “Every day, every week, something happens that reminds me that I am an involuntary exile [from my country]
Del Toro has directed a wide variety of films, from comic book adaptations (Blade II, Hellboy) to historical fantasy and horror films, two of which are set in Spain in the context of the Spanish Civil War under the authoritarian rule of Francisco Franco. These two films, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, are among his most critically acclaimed works. They share similar settings, protagonists and themes with the 1973 Spanish film The Spirit of the Beehive, widely considered to be the finest Spanish film of the 1970s.
Del Toro views the horror genre as inherently political, explaining, "Much like fairy tales, there are two facets of horror. One is pro-institution, which is the most reprehensible type of fairy tale: Don’t wander into the woods, and always obey your parents. The other type of fairy tale is completely anarchic and antiestablishment.”
He is close friends with two other prominent and critically praised Mexican filmmakers Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu. The three often influence each other’s directorial decisions, and have been interviewed together by Charlie Rose. Cuarón was one of the producers of Pan’s Labyrinth, while Iñárritu assisted in editing the film.
Del Toro has also contributed to the web series Trailers From Hell.
In April 2008, del Toro was hired by Peter Jackson to direct the live-action film adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. On May 30, 2010, del Toro left the project due to extend delays brought on by MGM’s financial troubles. Although he did not direct the films, he is credited as co-writer in An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies.
On June 2, 2009, del Toro’s first novel, The Strain, was released. It is the first part of an apocalyptic vampire trilogy co-authored by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The second volume, The Fall, was released on September 21, 2010. The final installment, The Night Eternal, followed in October 2011. Del Toro cites writings of Antoine Augustin Calmet, Montague Summers and Bernhardt J. Hurwood among his favourites in the non-literary form about vampires.
On December 9, 2010, del Toro launched Mirada Studios with his long-time cinematographer Guillermo Navarro, director Mathew Cullen and executive producer Javier Jimenez. Mirada was formed in Los Angeles, California to be a collaborative space where they and other filmmakers can work with Mirada’s artists to create and produce projects that span digital production and content for film, television, advertising, interactive and other media. Mirada launched as a sister company to production company Motion Theory.
Del Toro directed Pacific Rim, a science fiction film based on a screenplay by del Toro and Travis Beacham. In the film, giant monsters rise from the Pacific Ocean and attack major cities, leading humans to retaliate with gigantic mecha suits called Jaegers. Del Toro commented, “This is my most un-modest film, this has everything. The scale is enormous and I’m just a big kid having fun.” The film was released on July 12, 2013 and grossed $411 million at the box office.
Del Toro directed “Night Zero”, the pilot episode of The Strain, a vampire horror television series based on the novel trilogy of the same name by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. FX has commissioned the pilot episode, which del Toro scripted with Hogan and was filmed in Toronto in September 2013. FX ordered a thirteen-episode first season for the series on November 19, 2013, and series premiered on July 13, 2014.
After The Strain’s pilot episode, del Toro directed Crimson Peak, a gothic horror film he co-wrote with Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Cox. Del Toro has described the film as “a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story”, citing The Omen, The Exorcist and The Shining as influences. Del Toro also stated, “I think people are getting used to horror subjects done as found footage or B-value budgets. I wanted this to feel like a throwback.” Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam starred in the film. Production began February 2014 in Toronto, with an April 2015 release date initially planned. The studio later pushed the date back to October 2015, to coincide with the Halloween season.[
He was selected to be on the jury for the main competition section of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
Del Toro directed the cold-war drama film The Shape of Water, starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Shannon. Filming was set to begin on August 1, 2016 in Toronto, but del Toro confirmed on his personal Twitter account that filming would begin on August 15, 2016. Production was officially announced to have begun on that day and wrapped twelve weeks later, the film is currently in post-production. On August 31, 2017 the movie was screened and premiered in the main competition section of the 74th Venice International Film Festival where it was awarded the Golden Lion for best film, making Del Toro the first mexican director to win the award.
On July 21, 2016, it was reported that del Toro will retire from producing for projects that he isn’t creating or directing himself.
At the D23 Expo in 2009, his Double Dare You production company and Disney announced a production deal for a line of darker animated films. The label was announced with one original animated project, Trollhunters. However, del Toro moved his deal to DreamWorks in late 2010. Trollhunters was released to great acclaim on Netflix and “is tracking to be its most-watched kids original ever

I don’t believe it Inter World… or do I? What type of personal account story show is harder for you to watch and possibly believe, shows about people seeing ghosts or shows about people being taken by aliens? Now we can watch shows and movies about this all day, so why is it so hard to think it may be real? Is it the show, the stories, or the credibility of the person making the claim?
Let me know what you think on my blog and pass the thought along using #truth.
i just realized one of the tiers is art lessons and im really interested since ive always wanted to learn. how exactly does it work? i dont exactly have an art set up or drawing pad
Thanks for asking!
I’m a NYS certified Art Teacher with a Master of Science in Art Education.
Teaching art is *literally* my day job, so I thought it would make a good Patreon reward. =)
Art lessons would use google hangouts screen sharing or webcam if you just want to work on paper/lack a drawing tablet. If you’re using paper and webcam, I’d recommend you also get some colored pencils, oil pastels, and/or watercolors for days that focus on color theory.
I’ll generally try to teach a different topic each time, unless the class wants to stick to one topic. I will talk, demonstrate, and then everybody gets to try for themselves. I provide differentiated guidance and feedback to each person as they work, to whatever capacity they are comfortable with. Sessions are usually a little over an hour.
You can get 2 class lessons a month for only $30. That’s basically $15 per session. ( It does not include the free print in the $20 tier.)
You can get 2 lessons plus a print mailed to you every month for $50.
You can get 2 lessons, PLUS 2 more PRIVATE tutoring sessions where I only focus on you and your preferred topics, plus a print each month, for $100.
It’s actually all a crazy good deal because my wife and I generally charge $40-$50 per hour for private art tutoring. I’m offering this big discount as a thank you for consistent support each month, and because I don’t have to travel. ;)
Signal boost if you like the sound of that. Currently I can take up to 10 students for my class and 1 private tutoring student.
You pulled open the door and froze as the new member tumbled
to the ground. You didn’t see the takeoff for the fall, but when he landed, he
rolled and crashed into the chest. Something in the chest rattled around, but
you were too focused on the member on the ground. He propped his head up on his
elbow nonchalantly and raised an eyebrow at you. The door slammed shut, but it
barely even registered. You and the member were having a stare-down as he
fought to keep his rectangle smile at bay.
“Um… V…?” you asked hesitantly. He sat up and crossed his
legs, gripping his ankles cutely.
“Call me ‘Taehyung’! Or ‘Tae’,” he smiled.
“Okay, Taehyung,” you grinned back. You were still confused,
but you were satisfied that you had proved your theory right. He motioned for
you to go closer to him, and you complied. He stopped you when you reached the
middle of the rug.
“Wanna see something cool?” he said in an excited tone.
“Sure,” you smiled. You felt like you were humoring a child
more than anything. He stood and scurried behind you, and your guard was
immediately up. You felt like he was going to touch your back. You could sense
“Take off the nightgown.”
You followed his instructions once more, with a bit more
suspicion than before. Your back tensed itself and awaited his touch. You felt
your hairs standing on end as goosebumps waved through your body. When V’s
fingertips brushed your spine, your shoulder blades jerked together as your
torso bowed away from his hand.
“You knew that I was going to touch you,” he murmured. His
voice sounded lower and was no longer childlike. “You knew it was coming, so
the anticipation built your body up until it was hypersensitive. I finally
touched you, and you could barely stand it.” Your eyes widened; you felt his
lips at your ear. You gulped nervously. “But when I did touch you, it was satisfying, wasn’t it?” he purred. You didn’t
know how to process this sudden character change. The pads of his fingers
barely skimmed your sides, sending another round of goosebumps through you. He
moved at a timely pace towards the hem of your panties, but he lifted his hands
before they reached their destination. You could feel tingles making a pathway
under your skin to where you wanted his hands to go. You gasped quietly at the
strange sensation. He backed away, and you swallowed as you focused on the
“Let’s try something else,” he sung. “How about you close
your eyes?” You followed his orders, immediately tensing once more. You could
hear his voice weaving around your head. “I want you to concentrate. Ready?” He
waited for you to nod. “Picture the inside of a freezer: the frost, the cold,
misty air, and the whiteness. It’s a walk-in freezer, and you’re inside of it.
You want to leave, but the outside is even colder—a snowstorm in Antarctica…”
You were hypnotized by his deep voice, and you were barely
aware that your body was rapidly cooling from your imagination. You shivered
and clenched your teeth instinctually. Your nipples hardened, and you were
almost positive you could feel a cool breeze.
Suddenly, your lower lips were fiery hot, making you gasp in
surprise. It burned equally as much as you craved the heat on the rest of your
body. Your eyes shot open to see V staring intently at your face. He looked at
you almost curiously as the heat on your lower lips caused you to get wetter.
You were sure he could feel your panties getting damp. You unintentionally
clawed at his biceps to try and steady yourself from the shock. You stared into
his eyes, realizing then that he had held his hands very close to the fireplace
to heat them. He let out a miniscule smile that betrayed his unaroused façade.
You worried your lower lip as he released you and loosened his tie.
“Sit on the middle of the bed,” he said, walking to the
chest. You wanted to peek inside, but you scurried to the bed after catching
V’s darkened gaze. You scooted to the middle like he’d told you to. He returned
to the bed with a small cooler and towel in one hand, which he put on the bed
before him. He discarded his tie and removed his shirt. After crawling on the
bed towards you, he placed feather light kisses to your lips. You were already
craving more. Without touching you any more than he was, he made sure you were
laying on the bed by shifting his weight.
“Arms above your head,” he murmured. “I want you to feel
everything.” You did what he said, your wrists crossing above you on the
pillow. You watched his shoulder blades and back muscles longingly while he
untied the curtains from the bedposts. The curtains seemed to float down into
place, and the whole bed became enveloped in darkness. It was as if you had
been blindfolded. You couldn’t see V, but you could hear his light breathing
clearly. Your body was tingling and hyperaware as it tried to compensate for
your loss of vision. You felt V’s body heat grow dimmer as he sat up, tugging
off your underwear as he moved farther down the bed. The cooler rattled around
as he shook it, and you soon felt him hovering over you again. Your lips felt
freezing and wet, and you realized that he was holding an ice cube to them. He was
holding the ice with the towel and dragging it slowly down your body. You almost
felt like your skin was creating steam as the cold inched down your neck and
across your collarbones. Your breath hitched in your throat when the ice
circled your nipples individually, sending an unmoving shiver through you. V’s
heavier breathing almost went unnoticed by you as your back arched in the
strange pleasure. You let out tiny gasps when he pulled the last of the ice
cube around your bellybutton.
While you tried to settle your breathing, V blew gently on
the lightly pooled water across your torso. You whined a little at the teasing.
You wiggled in an attempt to show how much you wanted him. He chuckled ever so
slightly, and then he placed a much-needed kiss on your lips. He didn’t linger there
but instead continued to press open-mouthed kisses down your neck. His fingertips
glided up your inner thighs and splayed out, touching as much skin as possible
while they traveled to your hips.
You were so focused on willing his hands to go where you
wanted them to, you didn’t expect V’s mouth to be at your stomach so soon. His tongue
flicked out and lapped up the beads of water that were still on your stomach. You
let out an unintentional moan at the warmth of his tongue, craving more of it
immediately. His head moved away from your stomach and to your inner thighs. He
kissed you almost carefully, and your head was reeling from desire.
Finally, his lips pressed against your slit. You almost
bucked your hips up in response.
“Tae!” you gasped, forcing your body to hold still. He growled
from arousal and licked your clit. Your eyes practically rolled back in your
head as he ran his tongue slowly across your sex, earning him several moans
from you. He flicked his tongue rapidly against your nub suddenly. Your shallow
breaths were laced with moans, and you could barely control your tightening
core. He rubbed his lips against your clit and sucked, pushing a single finger
into your ready entrance. You rocked against him and sped your hips up in time
with his ministrations. You hadn’t noticed how loud you’d gotten until you lost
your voice when you came. Your body shuddered, and you clenched your hands
above your head together. V’s now gentle tongue was lapping at your juices. You
twitched at each movement of his until he sat up once more.
“You taste good, Jagi,” he murmured. His voice was deep and
husky. “How about you turn over for me?” You hummed in assent and propped yourself
on your hands and knees, feeling a newfound arousal make its way through your
stomach. You heard him unbutton his pants, and then he rubbed his hands on the
small of your back. You bowed your back and spread your legs. He reached for
your swollen clit and moved around it in torturously slow circles. His head
tapped at your entrance, but he slid past it and rubbed his hardened length
against your wet lips. You were going crazy from his pace.
“Tae, please,” you whined. “Faster…”
“I’ll think about it.” You heard the smirk in his voice. He was
still sliding himself against you, and you were trying to twist yourself so he
would enter you. His free hand moved downward so his fingers could dig into
your hips. You clenched your walls in anticipation, your breaths coming out
shakily. He eased himself inside you, giving you only a moment to adjust. You
moaned at the fullness and instinctually pushed back against him. He let out a
breathy gasp as he felt you.
“So tight,” he mumbled, seemingly to himself. Without any
warning, he pulled almost completely out of you and slammed back in. You yelped
and gripped the sheets as he pounded into you hard and fast. V was unrelenting
and grunting heavily. You let out a series of sharp “ah!”s mixed in with slurred
renditions of his name. Your core felt like it was on fire, but your arms and
legs were shaking from effort. Your elbows buckled, making your face crash into
the sheets. Your mouth gaped open while your eyes squeezed shut. With your body
bowed lower, it opened up a new angle; V was deep inside you. His pace was
becoming sporadic; he was getting close. Your core knotted tightly, and your
voice signaled that you were ready to cum.
“Wait for me, Jagi.”
You tried to loosen your stomach, straining with everything
you had until his final thrusts started. He let out your name in a deep moan,
and that was your undoing. You both came hard simultaneously. V bent over you,
clutching your sides as he released. You clung to the sheets in the same manner
until he pulled out of you. Slumping over, you curled up sleepily while V
snuggled up behind you. He nuzzled the back of your neck and giggled lightly.
“What’re you laughing at?” you grumbled.
“You moaned my name. You sounded like ‘Tae, ohhh!’” he
teased, giving a high-pitched imitation of you.
“Stop that!” You swatted at him, but the darkness hid your
grin and red face.
“‘Tae, please! Faster!’”
“I don’t sound like that!” You scooted away from him and off
of the bed, parting the curtains with a dramatic swoosh. He was giggling furiously and chasing after you, buttoning
his pants while you snatched up your underwear and nightgown. You stuck your
tongue out at him as you put your clothes back on.
“Your hair is all crazy,” V remarked. You tried to flatten
it, but to no avail.
“I’m leaving; I don’t need to sit through you teasing me,”
you muttered playfully, striding towards the door.
but you have to come back and see me!” he said excitedly. You smiled at him and
pushed open the door, making a half-assed attempt to shut it quietly. You ignored
the darkness in the unwelcoming hallway, turning towards the door and wondering
who would come next with a strangely light heart.
Anton Stankowski was a German graphic designer, photographer and painter. He developed an original Theory of Design and pioneered Constructive Graphic Art. Typical Stankowski designs attempt to illustrate processes or behaviours rather than objects. Such experiments resulted in the use of fractal-like structures long before their popularization.
