Okay, I want to know if either Keith or Shiro ever got so drunk, that one of them bought an exotic animal and forget about it. Also could the animal be the same color has their lions?
[The Voltron Family] Shiro came back in with the mail. The kids were still sleeping since it was only 7am on a Sunday. As he went through with all the mails, he handed the ones meant for Keith on the table. Keith was drinking his usual cold chocolate drink as he gathered his mail. Shiro sat down across his husband in the breakfast table as he grabbed his tea.
Keith: *goes through the letters* Electric bill, water bill… *hums* *opens the electric bill one* *eyes widens* My god. Shiro: *raises an eyebrow at Keith* Keith: Our bill is $1000 for this month. *gapes at Shiro* What on earth did we do this month that we used too much electricity?? Shiro: Hmmmm. *ponders* It’s summer, Keith. It’s to be expected. Keith: But $1000? Did we suddenly have centralized air conditioning? Shiro: You know, I was actually going to discuss that with you. Keith: No, Shiro. We are not going to have centralized air conditioning. We have three floors in case you forgot. *rolls eyes* *mutters* This family needs to know how to save. We have a swimming pool for a reason. Use that if you feel so hot. *grumbles while glaring at the bill* Shiro: Then our water bill will— Keith: It’s cheaper than electricity. So. Plus, books are available for entertainment. We’ll have a family meeting about game console usage. Shiro: *chuckles* You can’t do that, Keith! It’s their source of fun!
Shiro just shook his head at his husband. He went back to his own mail, opening the credit card bill.
Shiro: *eyes widens* Keith. Keith: Hmmm? *looking at the other bills* Shiro: Did you somehow buy something worth $8000? Keith: *snaps his head towards Shiro* What? Why would I buy something that’s worth $8000? Who in the right mind would? Shiro: Keith. *shows him the bill* I swear to god, I did not buy anything this much. At least not in these past few months. Keith: *shock* So you think I would?
Both obviously didn’t have any idea where the big amount came from, so Shiro had to call the bank to confirm.
Operator: Ah, yes, Mr. Shirogane. It says right here the purchase was done on March 31st around 11pm. Shiro: At 11pm? *eyes Keith* Keith: *shrugs* Shiro: May I ask what was the purchased? Operator: It was a squirrel monkey. Shiro: *shocked* A SQUIRREL MONKEY? Keith: *eyes widens in horror* Operator: Yes, sir. They are really expensive too. Shiro: And this was using… my credit card? Operator: Yes, sir. *continues explaining and giving more details* Shiro: *gulps* Yeah, okay, thank you.
Shiro placed down his phone on the table and saw Keith’s head buried in his stack of mail, groaning… in pain.
Shiro: Keith. Keith: I was out on March 31st with Kuro. Remember that time? I got drunk. Shiro: *crosses arms* Yes, I was informed. You wouldn’t stop kissing me. You called me a “sex god.” Keith: *groans* Don’t remind me. Not my best night. *head still buried* Shiro: You were drunk, I get that. But how did a squirrel monkey get into the picture? Keith: *moves head to the side to look at Shiro* I may or may have not entered an exotic pet shop. Shiro: And? Keith: And the monkey was yellow and it reminded me of Hunk. I wanted to get Hunk the monkey. So I purchased it. *bites lip* Shiro: Using my card? Keith: Yeah. We used your car that night, so. *shuts eyes in shame* Shiro: Okay. *takes a deep breath* Okay. May I ask where this 8 grand monkey is now? Keith: *slowly opens eyes* That’s the thing. I don’t know. Shiro: What do you mean you don’t know? Keith: I mean it as it is. I feel like I might have… released it somewhere. I dunno. It’s a bit blurry. Shiro: You let go of an 8 grand monkey… in the city. Keith: Forest, maybe. I dunno. There were trees. Shiro: Keith. Keith: I’m sorry! I’ll pay for that $8000 no big deal!!! *panics* Shiro: *can’t really stay mad* *chuckles* Keith: *looks up* You’re… not mad? Shiro: I mean, I am. That’s 8k, Keith! But you’ll pay for it anyway so that’s not my problem anymore. Keith: *pouts* Shiro: I am amused you bought an exotic animal and forgot about it though. Keith: Remind me not to get drunk with your brother again. *rolls eyes* Shiro: You’re not getting anywhere near alcoholic drinks again. Who knows what you might buy next time. I don’t want a lion in this— *stops to think about* Actually, that might— Keith: TAKASHI, NO.
all of u out here with ‘yeah bts did well but let’s not forget that without tvxq, big bang, etc etc they wouldn’t be here’
guess what?????? no one’s forgetting them. we all know that the reason any of the groups now are known outside of korea is because shinhwa, h.o.t, sj, tvxq, big bang, wonder girls and psy invented the hallyu wave, as it’s called. bts (and other groups) grew up with these idols as their inspiration, so yes, we can’t forget them. no one’s forgetting that super junior went big in china, or that tvxq went big in japan and that’s how the newer groups have it easier in these markets.
let’s be real. what bts has achieved is something no group has done before. please stop trying to take credit for what they have done just because you think your group or fandom is superior. fact: everyone thinks their fandom is the best. bts’ marketing strategy to have an active twt account and youtube channel since before debut is one thing that worked out extremely well for them. couple that with other things such as writing socially-aware lyrics, producing and composing their own songs, having kick-ass choreographies and showing off their dorky sides on social media, you can’t say that they didn’t deserve to go to the bbmas just because your faves couldn’t.
bts broke boundaries that weren’t broken before, just like YOUR FAVES broke boundaries that weren’t broken before. older idols didn’t even have the full use of social media to promote themselves, and YET they broke into the asian market. bts had it, and they broke into the global market. just because they had the advantage of a better technological era doesn’t mean that they didn’t deserve the win. it just means that they used their assets very well, and deserved it even more.
moreover, as the rolling stones said, bts write lyrics about loneliness (whalien 52), having a difficult time in life (lost), female empowerment (21st century girl), being confident in yourself (cypher pt 4) and so many other songs. this makes them relatable to not just a teenage fanbase (although yes, that is the majority), but an older fanbase as well. the catchiness of their songs makes them popular amongst the pre-teens. so you see, they have their reasons and validity for being where they are now. they deserve their fans, wins, and attention.
therefore, before you go around saying that fans of bts need to respect what older idols have done, know that we do. we appreciate everything that has been done in the past that has made bts the successful band that they are today. but also know that we are proud of our boys, and that we will celebrate and rejoice. so for some reason, if that makes you bitter, by all means use the advanced technology we have today and mute us.
because no, we’re not discrediting your faves. but we’re asking you to credit our faves when they deserve it.
imagine teenage winn and lena as lab partners who sit and invent devices to remotely set off their school’s fire alarm so everyone can get out of class, and who build a machine that lets them make toasties x5 faster, and who put helium in the air vents just because, and then one day they accidentally find a cure for cancer while trying to make a vaccination to cure peanut allergies so their friend could eat nutella
