there are some of us who are nice and who do love everyone without limits

Loose thoughts by Jayalvarrez

I’m usually pretty closed off to sharing any thoughts or feelings but whatever, fuck it maybe I can make someone feel something, these are just thoughts and feelings of MY opinions that I pulled from my list of notes scribbled down in different moments.. I’ve always said it before I barely show 5% of who I really am on social media.. Thank you to everyone who supports me.. I couldn’t live my life like this without you.

Confidence

Confidence is natural, arrogance is forced.

Never think your to smart that you can’t still be the student, wisest people die still learning and improving.

Focus on your own ideas and directions, don’t let others & your mentors tell you everything and influence everything because even the most helping hand has biased ideas and thoughts

Trust your past self on ideas and thoughts it’s the same person you got you to where you are in this moment

You have to believe yourself and convenice your self to feel powerful about what you say, hearing your own voice has a certain ring to it like no one else’s.

Use yourself for everything you are, you truly are amazing and unqiue be loud about it but be humble & do with love.
You are undefinable, You have no single label or group you belong to.. and your mind isn’t even slightly opened yet.

Being honest with yourself saves you in the long run always.

Never be insecure of your creativity.

Don’t live a life based only around how you look, Spending time on your mind and soul is everything..
Determining your self worth off your looks will leave you empty & with short burst of satisfaction.

Remember where you started from and where you are going, You use to dream of the things you have now.. even though this life style becomes casual never forget what got you to this exact moment.


Girls & Sex

My brain is built more like a female than a males, It’s giving me an emotional reach to deeply understand and open up to any feelings or thoughts of any human being. Being soft & loving is being strong.

If she doesn’t want it as much as or more then me I have no interest, sex is mental and eye contact can give you more then anything, giving love is more then expecting all the other persons attention and actions , unless it’s feeding the soul, passionate with a twisted mind it’s a waste of time.. treat every touch on her body like it’s art. 15 second feelings are nice but a feeling in your mind for hours after is even better.


Gorgeous girls and body’s are easy, gorgeous minds and souls are hard. A girl with a beautiful body doesn’t always make for a beautiful girl.

Remember there’s always far better things ahead then anything left behind.

Being sweet & loving to girls will never not be cool, but regardless of gender actions get reactions.

Energy is EVERYTHING.

Never worry about a good looking guy stealing your girl you better worry about that guy who emotionally gets your girl more & makes your girl laugh more 😉.

Getting under a girls skin with just my eyes and words as a connection makes it taste so much better (literally) than relying on physical looks or surface substance to entertain my mind.

I think few people are really built for relationships, I think technology will save us all.

It doesn’t matter how it looks and feels to anyone else it’s how it looks and feels to us.

Don’t let chasing pussy control your life or distract your big plan.

Being physically beautiful is nice but let it be nothing more then the gates to the soul.


Human Relations

i’ve got more personalities then the people i’ve met all together in my entire life combined, I don’t expect people to understand me, more likely expect them to judge me then to ever care to think past clueless first thoughts.

Take everyone with a grain of salt and a open mind, people don’t come with directions.

Peoples opinion of you is their truth, it’s not necessarily your truth or could be even close with to right at all.

The way you talk about the people you hate is a transparency of your own self esteem.

Don’t worry about trusting people, just don’t trust their emotions. Most people can’t understand them self how could they truly trust and understand you, & that’s fine.

Study psychology and history it will give you understanding and every answer you need, the world evolves but human emotions never will, people really aren’t that complex at base.

Don’t fight back into negativity and childishness insecurity, it only makes things worst.

If you want to hurt someone do it mentally, actions are short lived.

If you constantly blame other people for your problems take a look in your own soul.

make peace with your past so it doesn’t ruin your future

Standing up for someone who can’t stand up for them self is the coolest thing you can ever do.

To truly love someone is accepting someone for every thing they come as.

World & thoughts


Language is a forum of communication not always a measure of intelligence, At times I’ve had deeper conversations with just my eyes and touch then I have with words. You could be the most understanding person on the verbal side, but without a emotional understanding you may never be able to communicate with some people.

You don’t need to be any skin tone or ethnicity to practice and enjoy any cultural feelings, every human on this planet bleeds the same blood chances are you ain’t that special.

your not meant to be accepted or fit in, if you were you’d probably not of left that old life.

You can’t blame any one person or culture for anything, this planet is more diverse then you could ever process, Don’t get mad at a person for believing or acting a certain way even if it seems wrong or foolish in your eyes.

Being a good person won’t always benefit you, but there’s some emotional satisfaction in helping others.

You can’t fight science wether you like it or not, it holds the answers to all your fears and to all your questions, It’s a depressing beautiful thing.

Just because the Mass of people believe something is right or wrong doesn’t mean it’s either right or wrong, Most people go off emotions not logic, 1st world go figure.

I feel most alive in moments I don’t feel human. It’s all I really care to live for at times, these split seconds that my mind gives me these chemicals is all I crave at times.

ART HAS NO MASTER OR CRITIC JUST DIFFERENT OPINIONS.


I stand by no perfection and i’m a complete psychopath, I’ve been told i’m crazy outta my mind but attest it keeps me from going insane.. Anything said above can change in the moment & a mind with rules & barriers is limited, a wise & witty mind is what I work towards 😉 I'f any words can make you feel or relate it was worth me sharing! If I annoy and get under your skin for being..well just who I am.. I hope it hurts 👁

Yuri on Ice interview translation - Animage 2017/01 (p20-23)

I was going to post this last week but gave priority to the BD stuff. This will be the final interview from the booklet that came with January Animage! There’s still an interview with Kenji Miyamoto left untranslated, but it will be taken care of by @whiteboxgems​ whenever she has time! I’ll reblog it when it’s around.

This is actually 2 interviews, I’m posting them together because they were one after the other and (main reason) because the second one is very short.
A few notes below to better understand the interviews.

The first one is with Yuuichirou Hayashi, the one who created the ending (ED = ending by the way) footage. I have the feeling someone previously posted translations of the captions under the ED screenshots, but I don’t remember where and I’m pretty sure it was just the captions and not the interview parts, so here you have it complete. This one is pretty interesting because he explains in detail how they created the ED, and has some extra information on cut scenes etc. Definitely a must read in my opinion!

The second one is a short interview with Kayoko Ishikawa, the one who did the costume designs. Here you might think: didn’t Chacott design the costumes? I’ll explain. It’s more or less like with Mitsurou Kubo and Tadashi Hiramatsu: Kubo created the original designs for the characters, from scratch, and Hiramatsu transformed them into designs specifically created for animation, therefore with simpler lines, detailed expression sheets and so on. Likewise, Chacott did the original designs for the costumes, from scratch, based on the indications by Yamamoto and Kubo, and then the anime’s costume designer simplified and modified them so that they would be suitable to be animated. (Before actually animating them there’s a further step: the anime’s color designer is going to decide the exact colors, shadows and highlights included, that will be used inside the anime. I translated an interview with the color designer Izumi Hirose some time ago)

I usually don’t add pictures but this time I felt that it would be better to add them as an immediate reference. However, they are just for reference and are not meant to be visually stunning, so please bear with the quality because I just took photos of the magazine with my phone and quickly edited them.

Translation under the cut! (kind of image-heavy)

***If you wish to share this translation please do it by reblogging or posting a link to it***

***Re-translating into other languages is ok but please mention that this post is the source***

First of all, sorry for the slow responses! I forgot that I had to work a shift today, so I wasn’t around all afternoon. Which didn’t leave much time for me to write, but here I am, so lets do this (until I inevitably disappear to get some sleep)! Also I’ve gotten some very lovely asks but I wanted to write this down before I forgot. I thought of this headcanon while I was working and it’s too damn good not to share:


Alright, this happens at some point after CW but before Thanos shows up. The team (without Bucky, who’s still in Wakanda, working on getting his head cleared) is back in the US, having signed some form of revised accords. Steve is no longer team leader, but otherwise they’ve gotten off fairly easily with little repercussions. The tension between the old and new Avengers is obvious and especially Tony is met with outright hostility. It doesn’t help that Rhodey still isn’t in any shape to join the fights and is rarely around.

One day Clint signs Tony up for a parenting class. It’s another not-nicely-meant joke because of all the criticism Tony’s gotten for letting Peter fight. Only, the thing nobody expected? Tony actually goes. Because apparently he’s just that masochistic (apparently part of him still desperately wants to fix, to work things out between them). It earns him a lot of harsh ridicule, but Tony finishes it all the same.

Thing is, the Team Cap is so busy making fun of him, they don’t even notice when things start changing. Little things. When Steve walks into an argument between Clint and Tony and asks the latter “What have you done now?” disappointedly, Tony doesn’t snap something, get defensive or flee. He says “Have you ever noticed that you’re always immediately assuming I’m the one who has done something?”. It earns him another hurtful comment from Clint, and the incident is forgotten.

Until. Until, one day, during a debrief, Steve snaps. “She’s just a kid, Tony!” he yells when Tony keeps insisting on harder training for Wanda.

There’s a moment of silence, before, “Oh. Really? Does everyone agree with that?”

“You’re still not done catching up, Stark? So much for the futurist,” Clint sneers, and the matter is dropped. Or so it appears.

For the rest of the meeting, Tony is quiet. Thoughtful. In retrospect, they should’ve taken it for the warning it was.

That evening, when Wanda orders a new dress online, FRIDAY dispassionately informs her the transaction is impossible, as the price goes beyond her monthly allowance.

After a fruitless shouting match with the AI, she goes to Steve. Who (after a just as fruitless shouting match) goes to Tony. Who shrugs. “You told me she’s just a kid. Nobody, not even she herself, disagreed. I’m treating her like one.”

Suddenly, M-rated movies are inaccessible whenever Wanda is in the room. Once her curfew is reached, all electric devices go into sleeping modus (unless in case of an emergency of course). Talking with Tony, screaming at Tony, proves to be completely useless. Tony refuses to budge. Repeats lessons from his parenting class, about enforcing rules and teaching children boundaries.

And it doesn’t end there. The entire team is cut off from Tony’s money–Steve has to admit, he’s entitled to that, and maybe the team has gotten a bit too used to throwing Tony’s money around. That’s not the bad part anyways, they all have their own salaries from the government, they can still live. Just maybe a little more limited than before.

But suddenly the services they’ve become accustomed to are cancelled. They have to buy groceries themselves. There is no cleaning crew after Wanda throws a temper tantrum–she has to clean it herself or one of her ‘staunch defenders’, as Tony calls them, has to do it for her. New furniture doesn’t magically appear out of thin air, they have to buy it. And suddenly–suddenly the costs are starting to add up.

There’s a list pinned to the fridge one morning–on paper even–with their chores, going from doing the dishes to the laundry, that rotate every week. Who hasn’t fulfilled his one has to do all the chores the next week. FRIDAY keeps track of it, and barring missions and injuries, there are no exceptions.

Being grounded is an honest to god possibility now, including all electronics, for when they break one of the House Rules. And they are all enforced ruthlessly.

They all try to talk to Tony about it–they aren’t children, they don’t have to put up with this shit, it wasn’t funny to begin with, when is he gonna stop this already–but he remains unmoved.

It’s all “You told me Wanda is a kid,” and “I am allowed to set rules, considering you’re living under my roof. And there really is no excuse for breaking them, you are all aware they exist and why. They’re reasonable and you know it.”

And the most damning of them all. “If you’re so grown up and independent, you know where the door is. Walk out. This isn’t a prison, and you’re always welcome back, provided that you’re following the rules. You can walk away any time you want.”

Suffice to say, Clint is getting a lot of shit for signing Tony up for that parenting class. (Tony tells him he really appreciates it because clear communication is important.)

You don’t know when you stopped caring but you knew it was sometime that night after you got the call. It hit you so suddenly, like a slap in the face.


You inwardly groaned for the tenth time tonight. Instead of being at Jessica Davis’ party, like everyone else was, you were stuck at some family dinner. You couldn’t shake off this weird feeling you had, though. It was the first party of Junior year, it was supposed to be a life changer. But who’s life would it change?

There was this girl, Hannah Baker. You didn’t know her very well but she seemed nice enough. Every friend, or acquaintance, you’ve ever seen her with, the relationship doesn’t usually last long. It was weird to notice these things but everyone noticed it, right?

One thing everyone did notice, her new hairstyle. You had seen the pictures on Instagram that everyone was posting and you spotted her in the background. That was almost an hour ago, you put down your phone and haven’t picked it up since.

Maybe her life would change? New hairstyle, new… personality? You didn’t know what but something was off.

“Excuse me, I have to use the restroom.” Discreetly tucking your phone in your dress pocket, you stood up.

Your mom passed her conversation with your aunt and waved you off. “Go on, honey, but hurry back. Your aunt and I are discussing colleges.”


Colleges. You always laughed at that. They were discussing colleges for you without your consent. Like it didn’t matter where you wanted to go, it just mattered where they wanted you to go.

Well no, it doesn’t work like that. You don’t have a say in where or when you want someone to go. They just go and disappear, gone, just like that, out of your life forever.


His phone probably died. Yeah, that was the case, your idiot boyfriend, Jeff Atkins, always leaving the house with a low battery. But he promised that he’d call when he got home, and he didn’t call yet. So that means he wasn’t home yet, right?

Even if he wasn’t, he should be on his way there now but he’s not answering his phone. You don’t know if that’s a good thing or not, you want to make sure he’s okay but you don’t want him to get in an accident because you were calling his phone.

“Hurry up in there!” You nearly jumped out of your skin at the sudden interruption from your thoughts. Shaking your head, you flushed the unused toilet and opened the pipe.

“A fucking classy restaurant like this and they can’t even afford a public restroom with stalls… I’m coming!”


The door shut closed and you tried to refocus your eyes but they were filled with tears. Your mom has just visited again, the conversation between you two has been the same these past few weeks.

‘Are you okay, honey’ which really means 'You’re not over that yet?’

'I’m fine, mom’ which really meant 'No, I’m not okay. I fucking loved him.’


“Hello?!” You nearly dropped your phone when you heard it ring.

“Y/N, it’s Clay.” Clay? Was he okay, did he need a ride home from the party?

He was rambling on about something and you couldn’t hear exactly what he was saying. “Clay-ok, Clay, calm down. What’s wrong, do you need help or-” Clay was at the party with Jeff. What if something happened with Jeff and that’s why he’s calling you?

“-Is it Jeff? Is he okay, did he drink too much?”

You heard heavy breathing over the phone instead of a response and you called his name again. “Just… come to the corner of Tanglewood and Bay Street, it’s urgent.”

“Clay,” Your voice came out more urgent and harsh now. “Tell me what happened.”

There was a moment of silence and you swore you heard ambulance sirens in the background. “Clay?!”

“I-it’s Jeff, he was in an accident.”


You remember being mad that day. He said he wouldn’t drink too much and that he would make it home safe. He promised. But he broke his promise and you’ve been mad at him ever since. You were mad at him for leaving you.

Clay said it wasn’t his fault and he knew that now, whatever that meant. You didn’t believe him until he shoved this shoe box in your hand. He was muttering something about how he shouldn’t be showing this to you and you responded with 'then why are you.’

He looked you straight in the eye that afternoon and said, “Because you need to know the truth.”


Clays sweater did nothing to provide you warmth and you took it off immediately. The ambulance and the police, who were currently questioning Clay, were all here.

The only thing that wasn’t here was the stop sign that you had stopped by so many times. You found it odd but didn’t say anything about it, you couldn’t say anything at all.

Everything felt numb, your feet, your hands, your cheeks. It was almost fall and it was getting chillier but the cold wasn’t the problem. After your call with Clay, you drove to where he told you, going over speed limits and almost getting into an accident yourself.

You had hoped that he was joking and that was just some cruel joke. But who would joke about something like that? No one would, no one should joke about something like that.

And, fuck, you just wanted to hear his voice again. You wanted to hear him tell you 'It’s okay, Y/N, I’ll be good at the party. I’ll only have like two beers’. You wanted to get that call from him late at night saying that he’s home and safe.

But it was too late for that now, they already put him in a body bag.


Is this a joke? This can’t be real. Hannah Baker is dead!

That’s what you yelled at Clay the next time you saw him. Why would he give you this, the tapes, to listen to? He asked which tape you listened up to, completely ignoring your question, and you scoffed in disbelief.

You only reached up to Tape 1 before you turned it off. He gently placed the box in your hands, from when you threw it at him, and told you to listen to Tape 10.

“Clay, what does this have to do with Jeff?” All you got for a response was 'you’ll see’. Clay had definitely changed since Jeffs death and you were worried about him. Along with a few other students, he was acting weird.

Maybe it was because of these tapes?

Nevertheless, you reluctantly put Tape 10 in the Walkman and pressed play.


You hated it. All this attention you were getting as you walked the halls. All the 'I’m sorry for your lost’ that you were being thrown your way.

You didn’t need anyone’s sympathy.

On your way to your locker, you saw that girl, Hannah Baker, and Clay fighting. Well, you wouldn’t call it fighting, more like arguing, but they both looked upset. Hannah was crying, but why? She didn’t even know him.

“Ms. Y/L/N,” Mr. Porter was suddenly by your side and you nearly jumped out of your skin.

“Uh, yes Mr. Porter?”

He uncomfortably scratched his stubble, he was nervous. “I know that Jeff was your boyfriend and you’re probably hurting right now. Trust me, I know how you feel-” No you don’t “-I lost someone I cared about too-” Everyone loses someone they care about, what’s your point “-and  I know-” Once again, you don’t know anything, Mr. Porter “-that you’re in a time of need right now-” I need Jeff Atkins, that’s what I need “-so you’re more than welcome to come to my office, if you want.”

You let a dry chuckle escape your lips before closing your locker. “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Then you walked away.


You walked and walked until you were finally where you wanted to be. The corner of Tanglewood and Bay Street. They had put up a new stop sign, one that wasn’t made out of wood, one that couldn’t be knocked down as easily as the old one was.

One that wouldn’t be knocked down as easily as Sheri fucking Holland knocked down the old one. Sheri Holland killed your boyfriend, it was all her fault. Hannah Baker was there too but you couldn’t bring yourself to be mad at a dead girl. Besides, she did call 911 about it, even though it was too late.

You were beyond outraged. You talked to Sheri more than once after Jeffs passing and she knew what she did. You finally knew the truth now, thanks to those tapes.

You hated yourself for blaming Jeff for what happened that night. It wasn’t his fault and you knew that now.

You were 'beyond outraged’ for about a minute. It’s like you didn’t even care anymore to confront her about it or to do something. You practically dragged yourself here, but you had something important to do.

Walking to the middle of the road, you sat down on the concrete for a few minutes before laying down completely. This was the exact spot where Jeffs car was that night, you had it memorized in your head and you didn’t know if that was healthy or not.

You looked up at the cloudy sky, it was November now, and a few leaves made its way into your line of sight.

It was then you realized what your excuse was for not being mad at Hannah. I couldn’t bring myself to be mad at a dead girl. But you were mad at Jeff for something that wasn’t even his fault.

A car made itself known from a distance, the driver honked repeatedly but you didn’t move. You didn’t care if you got run over, you didn’t care about anything anymore. Your eyes stayed concentrated on the clouds above despite the tears that spilled over onto your cheeks.

“I’m sorry, Jeff. I blamed you for something that wasn’t your fault, for something you had no control over. You didn’t deserve it and I’m sorry.”

And then you left, disappeared, gone.

Just like that.

anonymous asked:

What about if the original (link and zelda included) champions interacted with puppies?

I usually have a 5 character per request limit, but hey, i’ll make an exception with the champions group from now on, and for once, not a sidon request! (still love him though lol)

Link

  • Ever heard of dogs being “a man’s best friend”? Link happens to be “a dog’s best friend”
  • This Hylian adores dogs and their unconditional love- it’s one of the creatures he can interact with while feeling like himself.
  • He is  very gentle whenever he meets a new dog, he knows some dogs may be a bit skeptical of strangers, so he always waits for them to approach him
  • … or he may throw meat between the two them to make the dog come closer- yeah, that works too.
  • Once the dog is familiar with him, you can bet that the dog will get a loads of cuddle times.
  • Scratch on the head? No problem. Scratch on the stomach? Link will stay there forever to scratch them if he must.
  • Dogs also loves how willing Link is to play with them. Seriously, he could play fetch for hours
  • Will most likely not leave the dogs unless the owner takes the dogs or Zelda (forcefully) takes Link away. 


Zelda

  • She do like dogs. She just hasn’t interacted with them a whole lot
  • Growing up as a princess and her own problems often didn’t give her the time to properly spend times with animals such as dogs,
  • Of course, once she started having Link around her, she often found herself with them more often. 
  • The first time she interacted with a dog was a bit…awkward
  • Link had unfortunately given her the advice on how you should let dogs approach you if they were ever scared.
  • That led Zelda to pretend to ignore the dog, just basically looking the other way…. while sitting right beside it
  • She’s just, humming to herself, thrumming her fingers on her knees and sometimes (impatiently) glancing back at the dog.
  • “Well, this is quite strange,it seems to be  ignoring me as well! I was led  to believe that this was the correct way of establishing a bond- wait a minute…why are you laughing?!”
  • After that incident, (And help from link) she managed to befriend the dog.
  • She is a lot more calmer around dogs and enjoys petting them a lot!
  • She prefers those dogs who are able to follow commands and do tricks as she finds their intelligence absolutely fascinating.
  • Still, her duties prevent her from interacting too much with them 
  • However, she lets herself take a break sometimes with them, if only to let Link relax as well.
  • …Not too long of course. Godess knows how long Link could be with them if allowed.

Mipha

  • “Oh…! What do we have here…?”
  • There aren’t many dogs around Zora’s domain (Actually, there is none), but Mipha has had the pleasure of hearing about them and meeting them through both her travels and Link.
  • She treats them like how she treats children: gently.
  • She finds it strange to touch their fur. Not unpleasant, just unusual. Once she got used to it, she was often found embracing dogs, with her face gently laying on their fur.
  • Not the most playful person and definitely not a dogs ideal playmate, but she do like to spoil them with petting and food
  • is a bit distraught over the fact that she can’t take some with her…
  • Goodbye’s are often said in a wavering voice.


Urbosa

  • She treats dogs as any ‘trained animals’.
  • she isn’t quite affected by how cute an animal is and she isn’t one to approach a dog first.
  • However, if a dog was to approach her, she would be friendly and pet it. considering the animals that usually approach her are the ones who is either energetic or very people-friendly, she might be amused by its antics.
  • She is the type who- if she has some spare time- would play with dogs rather than petting them, or at the very least make them run around and generally have fun and be happy while she watches. 
  • Whether it is a dog she befriended or not, she is quite protective over animals, not tolerating any abuse towards them. Just because she doesn’t have enough interest to initiate anything doesn’t mean that she doesn’t care. 
  • Also is one who likes spoiling animals with food and treats if she has any.


Revali

  • He has no fondness of dogs whatsoever
  • it’s not that he hates those those “…drooling, noisy beasts!” as he once had sneered,
  • It’s just that…once, when he had the pleasure of meeting one in a stable, it had tried to chase him. Luckily his reflexes allowed him to instantly fly in the air leaving only a gust of wind on the ground behind him. 
  • It was later explained to him by the dogs owner that the dog had been used to chasing birds and assumed Revali was the edible kind. 
  • Never before have you seen a Rito so offended.
  • Still, despite this, he doesn’t really hate dogs. As everyone around him seemed to bring out other sides of them,  rather than the ‘hunter’ side as he managed to do. 
  • He won’t admit it, but he is low-key nervous about a dog chasing him again if he tried to interact with them and that would not suit his image. At all.
  • Thus, he intentionally ignores it.
  • He was once convinced by Mipha to pet a dog that had taken a liking to her. one of gentle nature that just let Revali pet her.
  • After some awkward pets, Revali concluded that he wasn’t missing out that much.
  • Still, he is glad he got the opportunity to make that decision without any bias.

Daruk

  • Once mistook a dog for a wolf
  • Not due to any lack of knowledge, he just hasn’t seen many dogs around death mountain, but he has sometimes seen wolves at the bottom of it.
  • Still, Urbosa’s explanation cleared up his confusion nice enough
  • “Huh, so dogs are  pretty much smaller, house trained wolves? Ain’t that a surprise!”
  • Like Revali, he sees other people interacting with them and is very curious…but they also look very fragile…
  • And it’s a bit difficult for him to be gentle
  • He’s a bit confused with how he should approach them, last time they were pretty afraid of him so..
  • Urbosa however,suggested that he should just lure them over with treats.
  • And due to that advice, Daruk often ends up with about 2 - 3 dogs surrounding him while he sits and hands out treats, a giddy grin visible on his face.
  • The dogs may have been lured over with Daruk’s treats, but they definitely stayed for his charm
  • ….And how far he throws a stick.
  • Seriously, a game of fetch suddenly becomes a doggy Olympic event with Daruk.

a/n: let’s just blame @wangpuppo for enabling me to write this mess.

cr.


hyunwoo

  • the relatively quiet neighbor
  • very self-sufficient, can cook like eggs, bacon, and rice pretty well
  • does his own laundry and usually likes to kick back, watch some tv when he has nothing else to do
  • his friends love to come over and pester him so sometimes he pretends he’s not home
  • will even fall asleep when he’s hiding from minhyuk or jooheon
  • sometimes you forget he lives in the building bc literally no sound comes from that side of the wall
  • well, not always (you found this one out come about a week into your arrival into the complex)
  • so unknown to everyone else’s knowledge except his buds that inhabit the building, hyunwoo’s actually a dance instructor
  • a lot of the time he’ll actually do his routines at home, often having to rearrange furniture and play the dance song and all, and unfortunately, this means making a lot of…. sounds
  • this is the first time you’re experiencing this so you’re actually not sure what to think considering you’ve just moved in next door
  • all you hear is the furniture getting moved about and music starts playing and oh god you hear grunting too
  • you’re actually very sure you heard someone enter his apartment too though you can’t really hear their voices
  • it’s not like you tried to hear it or anything though you admit your neighbor’s extremely attractive you’re seriously not trying to think of what he’s doing and why he’s being so goddamn loud and oh god it’s like the fifth time in a row you hear the next bout of music and grunts and you’re actually a little traumatized
  • for the most part, you try not thinking about it whenever you see him but jesus it’s too hard when you’re grabbing your mail and he comes out looking all sweaty and exhausted and yeah nope abort
  • you do your best to avoid making eye contact with him even if he’s your super attractive neighbor with nice arms and a nice smile :(
  • the only time you’ll ever notice him is if he sees someone (either you or one of the elderly tenants) struggling to carry some things like groceries and he’ll be there in a flash
  • like you were at the entrance with like two boxes stacked from your old place and hyunwoo just appeared and said “oh!! lemme help you with that”
  • and of course you couldn’t really say no bc he’s already taking them from you and already making his way up the stairs since the elevator would be under renovation and he actually makes an effort to chat with you about life and how you like it in the building and even though you feel awkward about remembering that tidbit he apologizes for always dancing so late and probably blasting his music so loud
  • and you’re like “wait what”
  • and he goes “well, yeah i’m sure you’ve noticed the music! i’m a dance instructor so i practice a lot and my friends come by since they dance too so if we’re loud then i apologize-”
  • you’re just like “oh thank god”
  • him: o: “what”
  • you sheepishly admit you thought he was having sex for like five hours straight and he really almost drops your stuff in shock and he cheeks get all beet red and he’s stammering like that isn’t possible
  • and you just laugh, trying to calm him because you’re just grateful he wasn’t banging someone for that long so many times a night
  • and he goes “i assure you i’m very single” and oh dear lord he really actually set the boxes down at your doorway to facepalm
  • and you just wink at him and say, “well, i’m glad. i’ll see you around, hyunwoo! maybe you can teach me a dance or two~”

Literally Perfect

Kent had been running a solid forty-five minutes late to practice thanks to a car accident and resulting traffic jam between his house and the rink, which was oddly silent when he walked in. Yeah, all the guys were there, but no one was saying anything. There wasn’t even the sound of hockey, of pucks and sticks and skates. Everyone was just standing there and staring at him.

“Okay, what the fuck?” Kent asked, voice echoing in the quiet. At that, everyone jumped back into practice, just further confusing the hell out of Kent.

Whatever, he was late and needed to get geared up to practice, which he did quickly, getting himself on the ice in what he was pretty sure was record time.

Practice was one of the oddest things Kent had ever experienced. On the surface, to an outsider looking in (not that there were any observers; practice was closed), it was normal, but on the ice and to anyone who knew the Aces, something was off. Something was very off. It wasn’t like his team ever really respected him (except during games, but that was a different story), but this was a different level of fuckery. Even the rookies were acting weird, and the rookies hadn’t yet learned that everyone on the team treated the hockey legend, member of the NHL Top 100, with chirps and just general hell.

Kent ignored it as best as he could, throwing himself into practicing, pushing himself to his limits. He probably shouldn’t have done that, but it was whatever. He was used to working through pain and other physical limitations. He’d been doing it his entire life. Some old injuries were screaming at him, but he could handle it.

Practice was just wrapping up when things got even weirder. Kent was about to get off the ice, anxious to get out of his pads and take some painkillers, but the coach stopped him. Then there was a sound of one of the doors onto the ice, which in and of itself wasn’t the oddest thing, given that there were plenty of people who worked with the team, but everyone’s reaction to it was odd. Everyone, even the coaches, turned, looking between whoever was coming onto the ice and Kent.

Kent turned, determined to figure out what the fuck was going on. Once he did, he froze. Coming onto the ice was Alexei, wearing a nice pair of jeans and, of all things, the Parson jersey Kent had gotten him when they had been together six months. He also had one hand behind his back and an almost nervous expression on his face.

“What are you doing here?” Kent asked, confused. He knew that the Falcs had just started their bye week, but the Aces had a hectic schedule with five games during the week, so Alexei had taken Snowy up on his offer to go to Florida for a few days.

Alexei looked nervous. “I’m having something to say,” he said slowly. “Coaches, Aces team, they know.”

Kent was starting to panic a bit. Alexei wouldn’t break up with him in front of his entire team, right? And he wouldn’t do it wearing Kent’s jersey.

Kent glanced back at the team, skating slowly towards them. Swoops intercepted him, though, pushing him towards Alexei, who, oh god, was getting down on one knee and pulling a box from behind his back.

“I’m in love with you, Kent Parson,” Alexei said, and Kent handed Swoops his helmet and gloves so he could wipe his eyes. He was going to get chirped so badly later on for crying, but that was fine.

“I’m wanting to spend the rest of my life with you. Marry me?”

Kent was nodding furiously, full on crying now. “Of course I will.”

He skated over and pulled on Alexei’s hand, trying to get him to stand up. It wasn’t going well, but Alexei stood anyway, sliding the ring he held onto Kent’s finger and pulling Kent close. With Kent wearing skates and Alexei in regular shoes, their height was a bit closer than usual, so Kent only had to lean up a few inches to press his lips to Alexei’s.

The Aces burst into applause and chirping cheers and Kent flipped them off without turning around.

“You’re literally perfect,” he whispered against Alexei’s lips and felt rather than saw the grin he got in response. “I’m so excited to be marrying you.”

Cost of Freedom (1/??)

Summary: After a heist gone wrong, Kaitou KID has finally been caught. Now imprisoned, Kaito’s trying to survive until he can figure out a way to escape. His cellmate, ex-detective Kudo Shinichi, might be able to help. As the day of their planned escape nears, only one question remains in Kaito’s mind - Is Kudo really the criminal they claim that he is? Prison!AU.

@detectivegeekshin and I started talking about this AU yesterday. Now it exists.


Icy wind slashes at Kaito’s face, rain dancing on his head, but he doesn’t notice. Goosebumps spread down his arms, but he’s far more interested in the whimper of the man beside him - one of his new, fellow prisoners.

“Oh God,” the other man sobs. It belongs to another prisoner, with the number 035823 on the prison overalls he’s been supplied with, “I don’t belong here. I don’t, I really don’t.”

Water drips from Kaito’s nose as he glances across to the blonde haired man. He’s got short stubby legs, and a pudgy structure and Kaito decides that he’s not going to last long, not before the man breaks down completely.

Kaito shivers against the cold, “Dude. Shut up.”

The 26 things I’ve learned from life:
1. Be nice. Make it a part of who you are, not something you act out only when it’s convenient. Be nice, be nice and be nice. Even to people who don’t deserve it. No, you’re not being stupid nor are you foolish. Be nice because you care more about your heart. Be nice to the point that your heart doesn’t accept anger and hatred within it. Being nice to people is an act of kindness to yourself.
2. Everyone is afraid. No one really knows what’s going on. Some people are just better at pretending. Some people have mastered the art of going through the motion. But the fear of life is always there. So don’t let them fool you. It’s okay to be scared. You just have to stand your ground, again and again. Be scared still, but don’t stop from choosing the right thing.
3. Stop using and blaming the past for who you are, for the things you can control now. Your past isn’t catching onto you. No, you’re standing still, glancing over your shoulder and you’re waiting for it to swallow you whole. Don’t blame the past for the decision you’ve made to stop walking and moving forward.
4. This number is lucky because I say so. Because I believe so. It doesn’t matter what others think. It doesn’t matter that the Japanese believe it’s a number of death. As long as my belief doesn’t harm myself and anyone else, I can believe in anything I want. And yeah, I’m talking about a lot more than just my lucky number.
5. I can eat ice cream for breakfast. I have full control of my own life. I know when to stop, I know when it’s getting too much, I know what’s best for me because I know myself better than anyone. Don’t let people tell who you should be, what you should do. Because no matter how old you are, there’s always going to be someone who tries to do that. Don’t let them. Know yourself. Have that ice cream for breakfast if you want to.
6. Daydream more. It’s not a waste of time. It’s an attempt at surviving reality. Life can be harsh sometimes so you’re not weak or silly for daydreaming about things that are surreal and perfect. Imagine things being better and then you’ll have the strength to make them better. Because you wouldn’t be able to let go of that feeling…of perfection in your head. The perfection you could have for real.
7. Stop saying ‘… should be realistic’ and make it sound so negative. Chances are you’re going to achieve your dream if you work on it hard enough, if you believe in yourself enough, if you let go of things enough. Why do people use reality as an excuse to give up on things? Yes, let’s be realistic. Realistically, you can be happy, you can be successful, that person can love you back, and you can go through the hard times. Realistically, you can.
8. Read. You’re reading this long and boring list? Good. That’s a start. Now continue. Read every book you can find. Learn. Seek for more. Don’t ever get satisfied with what you know, no matter how smart you think you are, you don’t know enough. There’s so much of this world that you can’t possibly know in a lifetime. Don’t risk on missing out on anything.
9. Be sad. We’re not supposed to be happy all the time. Allow yourself the time to acknowledge how tired you are, allow yourself room to be real. Stop pretending that you’re fine when you’re not. Be sad, take the time you need. Hole up in your room and cry or listen to soothing music and sleep in all day. It’s okay. Afterwards you’ll be ready to be happy again.
10. It’s the thought that counts. I grew up with that rather religious value. When you already intend on doing something good, even when you haven’t said it out loud or acted out on it, God would already take into account your good intention. But it works the same way with bad intentions. So, just because you don’t say those bad things out loud or act on them, you’re still a bad person for thinking it. Slow down on the judgment and prejudice.
11. Stop comparing yourself with pretty much everyone else that you believe to be much luckier. They are who they are because they’re meant for it. You’re meant for something too but you wouldn’t be able to see that if you keep wishing to do what other people do or be someone else. You’re meant to be for you.
12. Don’t stop believing in fairy tales. What a sad life one must have if all they can see is the world as how it is and not as something more. One of these days, you’ll run out of things to live for if you keep counting only on the things you can touch or see, you can count and gain. There’s so much more to life that only requires you to have just a bit of faith.
13. Stop talking too much. Words can easily be misunderstood. Words can be twisted and used against you. Words can be so deadly when they’re said the wrong way. Talk when it’s necessary, when it’s true and when it’s out of kindness. Other than that, just shut your mouth and listen.
14. If you’re lucky enough to have been raised by decent parents, don’t ever stop cherishing them. You would always have your differences, your ups and downs. You may live your own life now but you wouldn’t be here without them so make sure you let them know how much you appreciate and love them. Don’t wait.
15. Don’t be too afraid to ask for help. You can be the most independent person in the world and you’d still need a helping hand here and there. Ask for it. Having too much pride in yourself wouldn’t do you any good in the end. There’s no shame in this. You still got everything under control.
16. Be so comfortable with yourself that you’re unafraid to do things alone. Go see that movie alone, treat yourself to a nice lunch, and go to bookstores. Why are some people so afraid of being alone? You can’t truly appreciate others’ existence when you can’t even stand being alone with the voices in your head.
17. Seventeen was the age when I thought I was supposed to be a certain way. That I was supposed to be this and that. And then I realized that that’s not the case. Just because society dictates us to follow this unspoken timeline and norms doesn’t mean we should succumb to it. It’s your life, make it your own.
18. Why are you in such a rush? Take time to slow down and just…be. You just achieved that one goal you had on your list. Revel in that small glory, enjoy it, you deserve it. Why should you move on so quickly to what’s next? Be grateful now, for any and every single thing you have, no matter how small. Tomorrow is tomorrow. Just focus on today.
19. When I was 19, I found out that fireflies are real. I know, I know. How oblivious I was. I used to think they’re just magical creatures out of books and stories. But then I got to see them and I was assured once again, magical things don’t just exist in books. Cherish the mundane things you’re so familiar with as if it’s magical. Because they are.
20. Forgive. Yeah, it’s one of the things that are easier said than done. But what good is it, holding on to anger and resentment? Aren’t you tired? Don’t you just want to let it go? Forgive the people who have wronged you. Forgive yourself for all your past mistakes. Forgive and let your heart be light.
21. Don’t expect things from anyone. At least not too much. Because yeah, we’re humans, we can’t stop ourselves from expecting. But nothing can disappoint you more than your own expectations. There are some things that are meant to be given without being asked. So if you don’t get them, move on.
22. Don’t wait on New Year’s to make up a list of resolutions. Don’t make up a bucket list as an ultimate goal you want to achieve because of death. Use life as the reason. You’re alive now. Act like it. Do those things you want to do now. Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Make new friends. Travel. Learn that new language. Ride a motorcycle. Anything. Do it now.
23. You don’t need that many friends. Just keep the ones that are worthy. Popularity feels good, I’m sure. But it doesn’t make you feel understood. All we ever need is to be cared for and treated right. You can only have that when you open yourself just enough to let people in and of course, you don’t let just about anyone come inside your fort.
24. Eat. Foods are like the easiest access to happiness. No one with full and satisfied tummy ever really complain about anything. Try different things. Be adventurous. Don’t limit yourself too much. You can always work out a sweat later on. And of course, stay hydrated too. Your skin would appreciate it.
25. Smile and laugh more. It doesn’t need that many muscles on your face to pull off a genuine smile. Just let it all out. Be merry and joyful not only during the holidays. Try to have it every day. If you just look, there’s always a reason to smile. Just look and give it a chance. It’ll come to you so easily. As easy as do-re-mi…okay, I’ll stop before I decide to sing the whole song.
26. Love. Just love. Love yourself. Love others. Love the world around you and the sky above you. The most important thing that you should know by now is that any emotion is a choice and if love is one of the strongest emotions humans can have then you’re making the bravest choice ever in your life. Choose to love.

‘’Summer is the time for squabbles. In winter, we must protect one another, keep each other warm, share our strengths. … “When the snows fall and the white winds blow” - When winter comes; “The lone wolf dies but the pack survives

Quick messy sketch of our lovely Stark sisters and some random thoughts.

EDIT: some of the comments I received proved exactly what I was saying. Nice job :D. The bias is strong in some people. Had you even bothered to read any of my other posts you would have seen that I never trashed Arya…on the contrary I had shown my appreciation for the character and accepted her with the bad and the good. Do you think I would spend my time on a character I hate? I am referring to art. Do you think I would create FREE art of a character I dislike and try to portray her as good as I can (I am speaking of a solo Arya piece I previously posted). Someone said Sansa wished Arya died…well Arya wasn’t some angel either, and Sansa kind of bullied Arya (the whole horseface wasn’t very nice) who also seems a bit frustrated that Sansa got the ‘good stuff’ from their mother (hair, cheekbones, eyes etc). Do you have siblings? Kids growing up sometimes argue/fight and say mean things to each other. That doesn’t mean they mean it. How exactly do you see Arya? ‘Badass’ assassin fighter yay goddess of winter bae of doom? Well, she’s more than that just as Sansa is not beauty without brains. The people who jumped and ‘attacked’ (lol you little wolves you) seem to be the kind that worship a character and ignore its faults and instead will point every little fault of other characters. That’s what you proved in the comments. I never said I blame Arya for Lady or Micah. I was using your own logic of blaming Sansa for Ned’s execution. If one is to blame, than why the other is not? Are these situations not similar? Did any of them did what they did  to kill others on purpose? No. None of them did it to kill Ned/Micah/Lady. ‘Buuuut Sansa said/did that’/ ‘omg how dare you say a bad thing about our perfect goddess Arya’ etc. I never said anything bad, just the things that I noticed, and if you don’t like it…well I don’t fucking care. Most of the fandom is extremely biased when it comes to the Stark sisters. If pointing out the obvious means attacking a character then you have some problems. You are free to create your own art, spread the hate towards any characters  you want….because that’s how you feel. At the same time I maintain my opinion and I would like to invite you to read the books again if you think Arya and Sansa are enemies. They’re part of the same team. They learned a lot and they miss each other, Winterfell . Sansa thinks of her future children and one looks like Arya, the memory of the snowball fight scene when they play in the snow etc. It wasn’t all bad between them. Childish fights mean nothing. If I had a dollar each time someone told their sibling or parent ‘I hate you’/ ‘I wish you were dead’…I’d be rich.







Ned said it best. In winter the wolves must stick together. Another thing he noted is that Arya, like Lyanna and Brandon, has a touch of the wild wolf in her. This wilderness, according to Ned, was what put both Lyanna and Brandon into their early graves. 

 I’ve seen so much Sansa hate coming from show-only watchers (most of the time) and betting that Sansa will die this season  because  Arya is heading North and well there is not much to do for Sansa as she basically sucks according to some people. I love both Stark sisters for different reasons and IRL I share similar stuff with Arya which actually makes it easier to identify with her character. I have close to 0% in common with Sansa …and yet I still like her as a character.

 Funny enough Sansa is still blamed for a mistake she did in season 1/ book 1 while if I were to use the same logic Arya is to blame for Micah and Lady’s deaths because her actions led to that in a similar way Sansa spilling the beans to Cersei ultimately killed Ned (though that was NOT the plan, he was supposed to be sent to the Wall, but Jeoffrey did not listen to anyone and just sentenced him to death). 

Another thing is that Arya killing is constantly glamorized and  praised, while Sansa doing it makes her a monster. Saw some things being said that she could be pregnant with Ramsay’s child and that she would be a horrible person if she aborted it. There is moon tea, darlings! Sansa could have taken it constantly while being with Ramsay. There is also that wonderful fall that could have killed it…or the freezing cold and river…

Been talking to some friends and all of them said that Arya is the kind of girl they admire and her qualities make her more appealing/ attractive…which is a bit hypocritical considering that 100% of the people I’ve talked to were in relationships or married to ‘traditional women’ and not tomboys.


So lots of people think Sansa should be killed off because she is too weak and because there is place for only one Stark sister in the North XD.

But who is more inclined to hit the bucket? Someone who has learnt to keep their mouth shut and think ahead or someone who acts on impulse? Show only watchers are quick to dismiss everything that is book related, yet rely on ‘Arya’s GRRM’s wife fav character he won’t kill her’. Well…that doesn’t hold any water when the show is concerned ;) (plenty of proof in what the show did with Dorne, Jaimie’s redemption, Sansa’s rape, killing off characters that are still alive, introducing useless romances etc). If the show wants shock they would kill someone who is generally loved, not a character plenty of people deem weak. Last year I told everyone Margaery was going to die and people called me crazy XD. 

I personally think we lost too many Starks so far and those 3 that are left (Arya, Sansa, Bran) and Jon should form their pack and fight off winter. Each of them has their special skill sets. 



I was thinking of people that could actually die soon (SOME POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD):

Missandei- from my point of view she becomes a ‘spare’ the moment she reaches Westeros. Daenerys has the best of the best in her council: Tyrion. She teamed with Asha and Theon, Dorne and  Olenna. She is going to meet up with Jon who has his own advisers. Missandei’s skill set becomes pretty much useless. She is a good translator and knows many languages, but in Westeros Dany doesn’t need a translator and Missandei’s knowledge of Westeros could be very limited(I don’t know for sure how much she knows…she could know nothing as Westeros is so different from the places she lived in).

Meera- according to some spoilers she heads back home after Bran reaches Castle Black. Does this mean her mission is done? Possible. I wouldn’t put it past GOT to kill her off (not after what they did last season with so many characters being killed off). She goes home to her father (you know…that guy named Howland Reed who was with Ned at the Tower of Joy). Bran already knows that stuff that Howland knows. And according to some other spoilers Gilly and Sam will find even more evidence about Jon’s parentage. Do we really need Howland/ Meera? Does it even matter anymore that Jon’s parents are who they are? He as a bastard was named KITN. Spoilers point to a romance with Dany. Last season Dany said that she would have to marry and who in the 7 kingdoms matches her own title? Who is left besides Jon? A marriage with her would make him king consort. If she dies (and I think she will die in the last season/book…but that’s another post), he ends up as king of the 7 kingdoms. No matter what…he is in a place of power. Even if he renounces his KITN title in exchange to Dany’s help against the WW (which doesn’t make sense because if she wants to rule the kingdom she must first clean it u…but this is what the spoilers state).

anonymous asked:

Do you believe phan is real? (Sorry if youve answered this before ! I love hearing your opinions and am curious as to which side of the penny your thoughts are based on 😊 thanks for being awesome ☺️☺️)

surprisingly, i’ve never received this question directly so i don’t think i’ve ever explicitly given an answer to it. while i have some pedantic quibbles w the phrasing “phan is real,” as i think the implications are a bit problematic, i do believe that dan and phil are romantically involved and i don’t hesitate in stating that or assuming it in the opinions i express on this blog. it’s probably been obvious in a lot of my answers/posts (examples that come to mind: the ‘will they move apart’ speculation, the fanservice discussion, the explanation of why i generally refer to dnp as partners, my reaction to the boncas, etc.), but i guess i’ve never taken the time to explain why i feel this way. 

in my opinion, there’s an abundance of explicit confirmation that dnp were romantically involved back in the beginning that, to me, becomes even more compelling because of their efforts to hide and delete those confirmations years later. these examples, along with a confluence of other very obvious truths (they’ve never had other partners in seven years, they’ve chosen to live together for so many years despite not really needing to for financial reasons or anything else, their lives are built around and with each other, etc.) make me feel very comfortable in my analysis that they’re together. i feel that there are two main reasons that people still deny the possibility of their romantic involvement and i’ll try to briefly address each: 

-heteronormativity. it’s just a fact that if dnp were not both male and all of the facts of their circumstances were exactly the same, no one would even question their involvement. (please excuse my rly simplistic enforcement of the gender binary in the ensuing explanation, i obvi don’t feel that gender is limited to male and female but it’s just easier to use that for the point i’m making). if a male and female lived together for 5+ years, and constantly spent the night at one person’s place/traveled across the country to visit each other even before living together, people would take it as incontrovertible proof of romantic feelings. if a male and female were to act the way dnp do around each other–namely, constantly flirting, teasing, touching, staring–and instill the amount of love and respect into their every interaction the way dnp do, no one would question their romantic feelings whether or not they’ve explicitly confirmed it themselves. if a man and a woman went on their dream vacations together, seemed to exclusively hang out with other confirmed couples, shared ownership of most of their belongings, chose to spend most of their waking moments together, and consistently valued each other over everyone else in the world for years and years and years, all of which dnp do (#confirmed), no one would have any doubts left. this is without even getting to a lot of the infamous tweets and dailybooths and formsprings and skype screenshots. for some reason, it seems like a lot of people think that accusing two MEN of being romantically involved, in a way that they would unflinchingly do to a man and a woman, is in some way rude or offensive or insulting–derogatory even. i think that a lot of people feel that it’s unfairly assuming too much, as if queer people don’t have to spend most of their life dealing with people assuming they are straight. it’s just… very hypocritical to me…. in the highly unlikely chance that dnp really are platonic het bros, i think they’ll be fine in the long run if a lot of people ~assume~ they’re together. and they don’t really do a lot to actively dissuade that assumption. if they’re non-het but not involved, i still think that they’ll be fine. my point, ultimately, is that the assumption of romantic feelings between dnp first of all isn’t even much of an assumption (it’s underlying literally every single thing they do and there’s a lot of evidence that, unless they’re literal psychopaths who took the time to fabricate a shit ton of stuff that implies they’re together, speaks for itself), but secondly isn’t an insulting assumption to make. 

-their own denials of their involvement. there have been a few times where they (mostly dan) have themselves denied their romantic involvement. dan has angrily posted to tumblr that the idea of dating phil is disgusting and laughable to anyone who knows them. he’s outright said things like, “those of you who only watch me because you like to fantasize about me being involved with my friend…” there was a time where they’d explicitly state they were single. but the issue for me with these denials, and using these denials as evidence of their relationship status, is that they’re being taken wildly out of context. most (if not all) of these assertions against the notion of phan being real were made in the aftermath of a huge privacy invasion that ushered in a fuck ton of scrutiny on dnp’s relationship status at the same time that their viewership was growing at unprecedented rates. they’d not been together very long at that point (only a couple of years), dan was going through a tumultuous period of dropping out of college and choosing to devote his life to this still fledgling career as an entertainer. neither of them were in any way sure of the longevity or potential success of those careers, and to actively choose in that moment of immense uncertainty to pin their professional viability on the durability of their romantic relationship would’ve been an insane risk to take. what if they only gained in viewership because of their relationship from that point forward?? what if their audience would only be invested in them as “entertainers” to see their relationship unfold? what if the relationship didn’t last or ended badly? they’d not only lose each other, but they’d also lose their jobs. that’s not to mention the obvious basic concerns of privacy, and keeping their personal lives for themselves to share and cherish. at the end of the day, dnp were and still are a closeted couple. they choose to be for many reasons. and in a moment where a huge piece of potential “evidence” of their relationship status was exposed to the world, they did all they had to do to stay closeted and to keep their relationship status private. unsurprisingly, this includes lying. 

idk, there’s a lot more that can be said about this topic and i don’t want to keep rambling on. definitely message me if you have more specific questions as i’m always down to elaborate on any of these points. i of course understand people who feel uncomfortable stating w certainty that dnp are together when they take such efforts to leave their status ambiguous even now. and obviously a confirmation of romantic involvement is not necessary to enjoy the chemistry and love and joy that they so obviously share with one another. ultimately their connection will always speak for itself and is at the heart of everything they make. all of the discourse around their own personal label for that connection is, in many ways, superfluous.

So as soon as Josh introduced himself to you, you anticipated him to be cocky and full of himself. He was probably used to get all kind of attention from women so you wouldn’t have been surprised if he made somewhat of a move on you. But this didn’t happen.

Instead, Josh was a truly a gentleman. He introduced himself as „Josh“ the friend of Tom, not as „Josh“ the drummer of Twenty One Pilots. Actually, he didn’t even bring his band up, only as he told you funny stories about being on tour with Tyler and the other members of the crew. Josh was genuine and a great guy to talk to. So as the night came to an end, you didn’t hesitate to give him your number, as he asked for it.



Now, a little over a week later, Josh asked you if you wanted to grab a coffee with him, at a little café. The two of you stayed in contact the whole time, messaging and talking on the phone occasionally. But you haven’t had time to properly meet again because you were busy with work.


It wasn’t hard for you to spot the bright yellow hair at one of the booths in the far back, where you could talk without being interrupted by the other loud customers who waited in line. To your surprise, you saw that Josh already ordered the drinks.

„(Y/N), Hi! I already ordered, since I was a little early, I got you a cappuccino with extra caramel syrup, that was it or not..?“

You couldn’t help but to grin, somewhat along the party, Josh asked you what your favorite order at a café was, and he remembered it perfectly.

„You’re right, thank you very much! How much do I owe you?“

As you heard him say, that it was on him, you slid into the bank opposite of him. Even if you wanted to argue about him paying for you, you knew that it would be pointless. Josh and you met only a few days ago and you already had the feeling of knowing him more than a lifetime. It just clicked with the two of you.

„So, how is it going for you? Everything alright with your co-worker or does he keep on annoying you?“ Josh smirked.

„Daniel is just an idiot, really. My boss told him to start working properly and he didn’t listen. Now I have to work twice as much because he got himself fired.“ You couldn’t help but pout. „But actually, I already did all of that, now that I think of it.“

Josh laughed. „Wow, maybe I should start working properly too! I wouldn’t want Tyler to throw me out of the band since I wouldn’t know what to do then. Literally.“

„What do you mean?“

„I wouldn’t want to work at a record store again. And since I didn’t go to college, my work options are very limited, you know?“ He chuckled lightly.

„Wait, what? You didn’t go to college?“ You couldn’t hide your astonishment. In no way were you meaning to be rude, but Josh took your outburst not so well. He got all defensive.

„I’m sorry that I don’t have a degree like you or anyone else for that matter.“ Josh looked away, being mad and slightly embarrassed.

As soon as you noticed your mistake, you took his hand in your own and forced him to look to you again. „I didn’t mean this in any bad way, I was just really surprised, that’s all. To be honest, I kind of envy you. You’re living your dream and didn’t spend many years at college, for a degree that you don’t even use. I’d love to be able to experience this, too. Actually, I majored in literature and where do I work now? At a little clothing store down the street. I don’t even know if I wanna do anything with literature for the rest of my life. But you knew what you wanted to do and you took any chance to get to your dream, even if it meant to take risks.“

Josh just looked at you. Completely amazed. He didn’t know what to say, what to answer. It took him some seconds to get your little monolog in. „I-… You’re literally the first person who told me that. Everyone said how dumb I am for throwing my chance at a good and save future away.“

„Well then, I’m glad to be the first, even if I think that the others are complete idiots.“ You smiled at him, still holding his hand. It felt nice and frighteningly comfortable. Like you’re used to it. What is happening to you? You never experienced those kinds of feelings that fast. You didn’t even know Josh that long!



„(Y/N), actually I wanted to meet with you because I had something to tell you.“ Just hearing those words, made your heart drop into your stomach. There never comes something good out of these kinds of messages.

„You know that Tyler and I tour a lot, and we’re actually leaving Columbus in less than a week again. For several months.“

There it was. You couldn’t help the pang in your heart. It was too good to be true, he’s gonna leave and forget about you.
You didn’t say anything, not because you didn’t want to but because you didn’t know what to say. You never had to experience this kind of situation before. What were you two gonna do? It’s not that you’re actually dating or anything like it, for that matter. Hell, you just met! But that didn’t stop you from falling hard for the yellow-haired drummer.

„I know this sucks. If I could, I would stay here… I really like you,(Y/N), even if we just met.“

You smiled sadly at him, squeezing his hand lightly. „I really like you too, Josh“

„I- okay screw this, I know this sounds absolutely crazy, but do you wanna join? Like, go on tour with me? Even just for a week! I can’t stand the thought of leaving you so suddenly when we are just getting to know each other.“

You were even more speechless than before. Going on tour with him? Like actually touring? That sounded so crazy. But what sounded even crazier, was your answer.

„You’re right, this is crazy… But yes? I wanna go on tour with you?“ Never did you think that you would even consider something like this. Leave everything behind and join some boy you met a few days ago on tour? Like actually touring? You are crazy. But it was Josh, and if you liked it or not, the first time the two of you talked it instantly clicked. You already felt so comfortable around him, which you weren’t even with some of your long-known friends. If you wanted to give this a chance, you had no other choice.

Josh grinned, practically from ear to ear. „Really?“

You nodded, grinning as well. This whole situation was so unreal, you couldn’t believe it.

Before you could even register what was about to happen, Josh put his one hand on your neck and kissed your cheek. „Thank you so much!“

You felt your blood rush to your cheeks. How on earth could you fall so easily and hard for this boy, who was sitting right across from you?



A week has passed and you were currently watching the third show of the boys. Tyler took his wife Jenna with him, who you got along really well. The two of you were watching them perform while talking.


„I’m really glad that Josh met you. He’s doing a lot better now and that’s all because of you. I’m sure he hasn’t told you all of that, but he was single a long time, because normally the girls he was interested in, weren’t so supportive with the band and touring. So he actually gave up on meeting someone, until he saw you.“

You felt your cheeks reddening, as Jenna assumed that the two of you were official. Sure, you both acted like a couple and confessed your liking to each other, but Josh hasn’t made any move for making it official.

„We’re not- Josh and I aren’t together.“

Jenna looked at you like you were crazy. „Please don’t tell me that Josh hasn’t asked you out yet? He’s such an idiot, really.“

You just shrugged, not sure of what you should answer. Hell, you weren’t even sure that he really likes you.

„I need to talk with him, or with Tyler so he talks to him. I’m sure that he already thinks of you as his girlfriend, he probably only forgot to properly ask you.“

„Please, don’t do that, Jenna! He probably has his reasons, why he wouldn’t want to make it official.“ You practically begged her. It would be so awkward if she asked Josh, why he hasn’t asked you out yet. Josh would assume that you asked her to do it and then everything would be over.

„Pfft, he’s head over heels for you, the only reason why he hasn’t made any move yet, is because his dumb head forgot it. Don’t panic, everything’s gonna be alright.“ Jenna smiled at you, which you eventually returned.


The two of you watched the rest of the concert in silence. Jenna watching her husband perform, while you watched Josh drum his heart out. You couldn’t help but stare, seeing him living his dream made your heart flutter. You hoped that Jenna was right because at this point there was no way you could deny your feelings for the yellow-haired boy any longer.

After the concert was over and Josh tackled you in one bone-crushing hug, ignoring the fact that he was a sweating mess, you noticed how Jenna and Mark silently talked while casually glancing in your direction. She wouldn’t…? Oh no.

„Hey, Josh! The others wondered if you and your girlfriend wanted to hang out later, at one of the busses.“ Mark looked at you, trying his best to hide his grin but failing terribly.

„Yeah, why not? You don’t have a problem with that, right (Y/N)?“ You just nodded your head, accepting the offer silently. Why didn’t he correct Marks assumption?


Just as you wanted to ask him yourself, because you couldn’t wait any longer, Josh noticed his little ‚mistake‘.

„Wait- Oh god, I’m sorry.“ Even if you didn’t understand why exactly he was excusing himself, it wasn’t like he hurt your feelings or so, your heart fluttered again because Josh was actually blushing. Probably because of embarrassment. But nevertheless was it cute.

„Don’t say sorry, it’s no problem.“ You gave him a reassuring smile, hoping that he would take the hint and finally ask you. 

But nope. Josh just kissed your cheek and told you that he was going to take a quick shower before you two meet the others.


As you wanted to go to the bus, where you were staying at, you heard Josh calling for you. „Wait (Y/N)! I forgot something!“

You turned around, looking expectingly at him. „What?“

„I- err,“ He took a deep breath, before answering your question. „Do you wanna be my girlfriend?“

You couldn’t believe your ears. Was he serious?

„I’m sorry that it took me Mark’s assumptions to finally ask you, but to be honest I already thought of you as my girl, so… I don’t know why I didn’t ask you sooner.“

As you heard him, you couldn’t help but chuckle. „Good to know that you already claimed me as yours, before I even knew it.“

Josh looked at you, shrugging lightly while smiling like the cute idiot that he is. „So, you wanna be mine officially?“

„Yes, I’d love that, you dork.“ And with that, you leaned in to kiss him. Just as your lips touched, you heard Jenna scream.

„Yes! Finally! Took you long enough, Josh!”

The two of you burst out laughing. Now, the yellow-haired drummer was finally yours, and you wouldn’t want to change that for anything in the world.

anonymous asked:

☕️ Undyne is an introvert. She goes to the cave behind the waterfall (the one with the tutu) when she wants to be alone, she doesn't want you to go into her room, and she's anxious that waterfall will get overcrowded when people start moving from the city(she says this when you call her in the room with all the puddles i believe) Papyrus also says that Undyne likes her privacy when you talk to him outside her house and she doesn't want to befriend you

Ohhh man, this is a really interesting take! I never actually thought of it, but damn, I kinda love it. Her being an introvert in a broader sense (rather than in the more commonly used asocial sense), recharging herself by being alone, is really interesting to me, and sort of fits with some of my headcanons for her. Sometimes, she seems a bit lonely and prone to silent brooding. The way that she hides away after you defeat her is a big example.

I think overall I would classify her, at least in my mind, as an ambivert. I think as much as she likes her alone time to restore her energy, she also draws her focus and strength from her friends and genuinely loves spending a lot of active, involved time with them. I think she tries to strike up a balance, and can’t really enjoy the silence without breaks to go noogie her skeleton friend or watch some anime with her favorite nerd. I see her as leaning one way for a while, quiet alone time or wacky friendship hijinks, then swinging in the other direction for another while. 

For some other extroverted traits, while I think she limits her social circle at times to those she really trusts, and she’s not concerned with being popular, she DOES really care about a lot of people and think about them often. She wants you to cherish the nice ghost that lives next door. She wants you to cherish the cute bird. She wants you to do well in your quest. She wants to protect Papyrus and his sweet personality. She sees a cute girl staring out into the abyss at the dump and you better believe she’s going to make the first move and strike up a conversation. Her favorite trait in other people is passion. When she’s looking at the end of the world, she doesn’t just worry about the people she’s closest to, she thinks of everyone. Everyone who needs her help, and everyone who needs to be saved. It doesn’t matter how close they are to her. It doesn’t even matter if she hates them (ex: humanity). Other people are being threatened and it doesn’t matter if she is dying or hurting. She needs to hold on, not for herself, but for them. 

So, yeah, I think she’s got a lot of extroverted traits (in more common-use sense) and a lot of introverted traits (in a broader sense), and I really like that about her.

[Masterlist[Part 2]

A loud yawn almost broke your jaw. You rubbed your tired face that felt more like a mask, trying to wake up just a little bit more. Even though a fresh cup of coffee was an extremely tempting idea, you doubted you would survive one more. You were pretty sure that caffeine was flowing through your veins right now, after so many cups that you lost count.

It was a hard night. You and the Winchesters were wandering in the dark, trying to find out what was going on in a small city in the middle of nowhere. You hated this particular hunt. Nothing was going as it should be and since you arrived there, you have been attacked three times already in the span of a few days. But people were dying, so there was no chance of leaving it unsolved. To be honest, you didn’t even want to leave it be, you were a hunter after all – but you were exhausted after another sleepless night and another sleepless day when you had to interview more people. It was fair, actually. Dean had taken the guard before you, and Sam was supposed to watch over you two on the upcoming night. You still had no idea what was hunting people down in this city, but you were sure as hell that it was aware of your arrival. And it wasn’t happy.

You bit your lip slightly, just to keep your mind awake, but it took you only a few seconds to go back to your previous, barely alive, state. You were leaning on Dean’s Impala, watching the boys flirt with a middle-aged woman across the street. She must have known something she didn’t want to tell, because otherwise the boys wouldn’t be acting like this just for fun. Not in the middle of a hunt at least, you hoped. And damn on you if it wasn’t working.

“Hello, darling. Fresh and resplendent as always, I see,” a well-known voice erupted behind you. You could almost smell the sulfur. Or maybe it was overstrain.

“Yeah. Few more days like that and I may even visit you in Hell personally,” you muttered, not bothering to look back. You felt like every move was taking the tiny scraps of your energy that were left. You didn’t have many of them, so you surely weren’t in the mood for taking a risk.

“As much as I would love your visit, I am pretty sure it’s still too early for you,” Crowley said with a smirk, now standing on your left.

You gave him a tired look.

“But Dean-o said I will rest in a grave. It’s so tempting.”

Crowley laughed quietly at your poor attempt in joking, even though it was really bad. You have known each other for a while now, since you were working with the Winchesters and they had to use the demon’s help from time to time. You have known every sin and every move Crowley made even before you had actually met him – that was the boys’ way of protecting you from him and his charms. It was kind of cute of them, but they didn’t have to worry so much about you, to be honest. You were not a kid anymore. You understood how the world was working.

But even though Crowley was not a Saint, he was still playing by the rules and you respected this side of him, just like he respected your hunting skills. There were times when you had been a true pain in his ass, killing so many demons that he almost didn’t believe one person was able to make it. And yet, there you were, standing side by side.

“You feel alright?”

“I’ve been worse,” you shrugged. “But I’ll be back to my old self once we finish this mess. I wish we could do it soon.”

“I don’t have any information about this case, unfortunately.”

“Since when would you want to help us without begging?” you raised an eyebrow. “I thought the begging was the best part.”

“Oh, I still love it. I just do not enjoy seeing you in a state like this, it takes the fun out of your poor attempts in convincing me to do anything. Especially if you are driven to the limits because of some stupid monster.”

“And who’s saying that?” you asked sarcastically.

Crowley shot you a bright smile, obviously proud of himself for making you a little more alive.

“Maybe we could discuss this problem somewhere in private,” he offered slyly.

“Sure, ‘cause I obviously have so much free time right now. Who cares about people dying,” you dismissed his flirt. You weren’t even mad at him. He was Crowley. He flirted all the time, with literally everything that had two legs.

“I’m not saying about right now, but I’m always open for any…”

“Go there,” you pointed out to the other side of the street, where the Winchesters were working their magic.

Crowley frowned.

“What do you mean?”

“If you want to have fun, show the boys how they should charm the pretty lady, because I’ve been waiting for like half an hour and they still have no answers. Well, I mean, I’m pretty sure they have many answers, but none is useful for our case. And you may lose some steam by the way.”

The Demon blinked, taken by surprise.

“Darling, I’m pretty sure I sense something more than you are actually saying,” he stated carefully, watching you with concern. “If anything is wrong, you may tell me…”

“Sorry, Crowley,” you backed up, feeling guilty. He had nothing to do with your irritation and shouldn’t be blamed for it. “I’m just tired and everything makes me angry right now. I mean, just look at this woman – how can anyone be so stupid? Boys aren’t even trying, and she is still so tacky… And it’s gonna take some time before she says anything connected with the case.”

“Oh my, are you jealous?” Crowley gasped theatrically. “Is it Moose or Squirrel? Who should I hate even more?”

“Nah, stop it. I just can’t believe anyone can think like an animal. I mean, I’m used to it, but it still keeps me surprised every time people act like they have never heard about dignity.”

“It’s not that bad, everyone has their needs…”

“Crowley. She is drooling in front of them.”

“She is not…”

“Look closer. She just raised her skirt with the door frame, of course unintentionally.”

“…you may be on point a little bit.”

“Say that again, so I can record it.”

Crowley laughed quietly.

You yawned again. You had only slept in the Impala once and it left a not very comfortable feeling, but at this point, you were so tired you would fall asleep on the ground. You gazed longingly at the backseat, almost feeling the soft texture underneath your beaten up, exhausted body…

Crowley was observing you, but you were too lost in your thoughts to notice it. The two of you were neither friends nor  enemies anymore (for which he was more than relieved, but would never admit). You were an interesting person and he kind of enjoyed working with you. You often had those little conversations, when things weren’t in so much rush and you had a short break before rushing into new problems.

He got to know a few things about you. Most of the time, you kept being hardy and determined as to what did you want to archive. There was hardly anything one could use against you. And now… You probably didn’t even think about your words, but Crowley was rarely forgetting anything. And now he had something that could be considered as your weak point. Of course, he still wasn’t sure what precisely caused it, but was more than willing to find out. In a world where people and monsters constantly had to fight each other, having an advantage over one of your biggest opponents was at a premium.

“I guess the boys have finally found the answers they were looking for,” Crowley stated casually, looking at the other side of the street. The Winchesters noticed him and visibly hastened their steps.

“You sure you don’t want to teach them how to take from people what they want faster?” you asked.

“I think I still have to learn a few things myself, love,” he said in an abnormally nice tone. He was radiating with happiness, just as if he won a billion dollars. Or maybe souls, who knows what demons preferred.

“Okay,” you shrugged.

Before the brothers came to you, Crowley was gone in the blink of an eye. They didn’t look very pleased.

“What did he want?” Dean asked worried.

“I don’t know. Maybe he was bored in Hell. Can we finally go to motel? I’m dying…”

“You could take a nap in the car.”

“I didn’t want to be mugged. I hate breaking fingers of muggers, they scream so loudly…”

“Right. Let’s go back, Rambo,” Sam laughed, patting you on a head. You may be smaller than him, but you could toss him to the ground any second.

You wanted to remind him of that, but another wide yawn stole your words and closed your eyes, and after you entered the car, you already forgot what you wanted to say. Thanks, Chuck, that nothing important happened that day and you could sleep through the better part of it, not bothered by any more problems.

During my first year of college, I tried many new things to get out of my comfort zone and learned many life lessons throughout the year.

In high school, I mostly focused on school, running, drawing, my blog (which I started during the middle of 11th grade). I was not really “social”, and only hung out with 1-2 friends at a time. I did really well in all, and I was very happy.

In college, I decided to branch out, since I would describe myself as introverted in high school, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and be more social.

I’m a bioengineering major, entrepreneurship minor, runner for a division 1 cross country and track team, freshman representative for the Chinese Student Association, write articles and take photos for Spoon University, and work in a bioengineering research lab. I was also posting 3 times a day on my blog, and also made sure to post on my food art Instagram every day, and my personal/running Iinstagram every 2-3 days. I barely had time to draw, which is one of my favorite things to do.

I attended a bunch of events first quarter to try something new, and learned that all that social activity took away my time to do things that I am passionate about. I and found myself looking back in high school, and living in the past because I wasn’t as happy. However, that was an important learning experience for myself.  

Here are some life lessons I have learned during my first year of college that I hope helps you.

1. Most important: Never take anything personally. The more people I met, the more I started to realize that you’re just not compatible with some people. Think of it this way: If you know that you are only trying to be friendly, but the other person doesn’t seem to like you, then that is their problem because they’re obviously blind and can’t see your awesomeness. They are not worth your time. Same thing with getting rejected from something. Once you stop taking things personally, I promise you will feel happier because it’s not your fault if you’re just trying to be a good person.

In high school, I never had the desire to branch out and meet new people from my school, therefore, the people whom I hung out with share many similarities with me.

You don’t have to get along with everyone, and you’re not limited to anyone either. Be nice to everyone, because you don’t have time to make enemies and/or deal with drama.

2. People are worried about themselves. I personally don’t think it’s necessary to try so hard to present yourself. People don’t judge you as they may seem to in high school. Everyone’s mostly minding their own business.

3. Find your own method of time management. In college, no one is going to tell you what to do. You can have class from 1-9 hours a day, and you need to plan the rest of your time well.

4. Realize your limits. Everyone has a different limit, and it’s something I believe you should experiment with early on in life to find out.

In high school, I was very successful in running, so everyone seemed to know who I was. I came into college feeling like another face. I was injured, and not doing as well in everything as I would like because I was involved in too many activities. I do believe in trying new things to explore, but realize that you have a limit. Learn to prioritize.

5. Learn to say no. I like to be a nice person, but I also believe that in order to be able to help people, you must take care of yourself first. By spring quarter, I started to feel tired of having to do so many things, so i worked up the courage to say no to some of the things, so I could have more time to study for my test, finish homework, or simply because I need to go run.

Missing a party to study is ok, in fact, no one seems to really care. I never party because I rather study and do quiet activities in my room such as drawing on weekends when I have a little extra time, and my friends understand that. Don’t feel weird if you are not into things that everyone else seems to be, and you don’t have to make yourself do things that you don’t want to (unless it’s school work because you’re here for a degree), either.

6. Don’t let anyone pressure you into doing something. I don’t party or drink. But that doesn’t mean I don’t isolate myself from people who do. I have friends that like to party, but they never force me to do something that I’m not comfortable with. You’re not “weird” if you chose not to drink because your true friends will accept you for who you are.

7. Appreciate your parents. Don’t take them for granted and become friends with them. 

8. Get to know your professors. Don’t be intimidated, they want to help and it’s fun to make friends.

9. Don’t be shy. That’s not how you get what you want. Plus, don’t be afraid to speak in class, and someone probably has the same question.

10. Make friends in classes. You can make great study buddies and share notes when either of you are absent.

11. Use a planner (paper or electronic, whichever you prefer) because physically writing helps you remember things more.

12. Take advantage of your resources such as interlibrary loans, databases, writing centers, tutoring, friends, professors, gym, and anything else.

13. Don’t buy your textbooks from the bookstore since they usually cost more. Get them from a friend, or find them online. 

14. Be confident. Fake it until you make it. That’s how you get many things in life.

15. Prioritize your health. Without it, you have nothing.

16. Make a list of things to always carry with you. For example: Food (quiet food in class), headphones, planner, phone, laptop, gum/mints, chargers, notebooks, etc.

17. Learn to adapt to change. Don’t expect it to be easy. I thought I was a very independent person in high school and that I would love college, but so many things change. I struggled my first quarter, then I got used to the routine. It will be hard at first, but you will learn and grow and become a better and more mature person than you were before.

18. Don’t be afraid to try new things. The more you know about yourself, the better equipped you are to make decisions about what you want in your life.
