they even share the same happy dance

anonymous asked:

hi! Do you know any hot bed sharing fics? Also do you know any fics where sherlock is self-deprecating and john just showers him with love? Thanks!!

Hi Nonny! 

I actually currently have a bed-sharing fic rec list here so you can check that out there! Here are some others I don’t have on that list that I’m currently sorting:

Feel your breathing by Mixxy (T, 2,129 w. || Post-TRF, Cuddling, Separation Anxiety, Platonics) – And he was numb yet feeling far too much, he was back on that pavement, and his mind was buzzing far too hard, whispering you didn’t do it in time, Mrs. Hudson is dead, Lestrade is dead, your John is dead dead dead- And then John’s hand was around his wrist, thumb rubbing over his pulse point, and Sherlock’s not sure if it was to comfort him or John but either way it worked.

Turn the key, and come home by TooManyChoices (M, 2,718 w. || Angst/Humour, First Time/Kiss, Happy Ending) – Sherlock and John have been dancing around what’s between them for years. Will John return to Baker Street, and if so, will things ever be the same?

Lie-In by scullyseviltwin (E, 2,540 w. || Bed Sharing, Morning After, Fluff) – “I can’t believe you drank an entire bottle of wine.”

Assurance by belovedmuerto (T, 2,382 w. || Bed-Sharing, Friends to Lovers, Fluff, Idiots in Love) – It’s not so much the ‘you’re half-dead, you wanker,’ or even the broken ribs, the hairline fracture of the pelvis, the dislocated shoulder and knee, and the wrenched ankle.

Affirmation by jamlockk (E, 3,096 w. || First Time, Dev. Rel., PWP, Love Declarations, Emotional Sherlock, Comforting John, Gross Fluff) – “Sunlight dappled John’s skin, casting a glow across his spreadeagled form as he dozed among the rumpled sheets. Sherlock knew the expression on his face was hopelessly soft but for once did not care about showing his true feelings so openly. He simply stood there, in the doorway, gazing at the impossibly beautiful man currently snuffling softly in his slumber.” Part 8 of All the ways we love

It Was All Right There In Front of Him (A Five Times Plus One Story) by bees_stories (T, 3,191 w. || 5+1, Protective Idiots, Grooming, Bed Sharing, Lestrade POV) – DI Greg Lestrade is a good detective. But sometimes he doesn’t trust the evidence in front of him, until there’s a compelling reason to do so.

Acceptable Behaviour by bbcatemysoul (M, 3,449 w. || Fluff, Dev. Rel., Miscommunication, First Time) – Sherlock isn’t really sure why John wants to shag him, but he’s certain that if he’s careful to behave properly about it, John can be persuaded to keep doing it. In other news, John is a good boyfriend and Sherlock is an idiot.

One Day Like This by nondeducible (E, 4,872 w. || First Time, Bed-Sharing, Romance, Fluff, Virgin Sherlock) – When Sherlock emerged from the bathroom, the sight before him nearly took his breath away. The only light in the room was the small lamp on the bedside table. John’s skin shone like gold, his hair like the purest silver. He was on his side, facing the empty part of the bed, his outstretched hands ready to embrace whoever climbed in next to him. Sherlock could imagine, just for a second, that this was their shared bed and he was coming back to settle into John’s arms.

Bed-Sharing Between Flatmates by testosterone_tea (T, 5,053 w. || 5 and Ones, Bed Sharing, PTSD John, Science, Whump, Insecure Sherlock) – 5 times Sherlock had an excuse to share John’s bed, and the one time he didn’t need one.

A Terrific Soporific by antietamfalls (T, 11,269 w. || Bed Sharing, Sleepy Cuddles, Fluff, Insomnia, Experiments) – Sherlock, a long-time sufferer of insomnia, is forced to share a bed with John at a hotel while on a case. To his astonishment, he finds that spending the night next to John helps him sleep and becomes determined to maneuver himself back into John’s bed.

Winter’s Delights by Kate_Lear (E, 21,173 w. || Holmes Family, Christmas, Fake Relationship, Friends to Lovers, Bed Sharing, Domestics) – Sherlock takes John home for Christmas to meet the extended Holmes family. Part 1 of Winter’s Delights

Knotted by naughtyspirit (E, 23,166 w. || UST/URT, Cuddling, Sharing Body Heat, Confessions, Kissing, Mastrubation, Frustration, BAMF!John) – John has to cancel a date because of Sherlock’s case, which leads them to be tied up in a basement from which they have to escape. They get wet, get tied up close and John has to step up and save them. Because he’s pretty. And hot. And just a little bit of a BAMF.

Bedtime Stories by Liketheriver (M, 34,388 w. || Emotional H/C, Romance, Angst & Humour, Bed Sharing, John First Person, TRF, John Whump) – John’s POV during Season 2 and beyond when Sherlock takes up semi-permanent residence in his bed. A collection of codas and missing scenes wrapped up into one long fic and topped with a bow that takes the story beyond Reichenbach and into happy territory once more. Part 1 of Bedtime Universe


As for self-depricating Sherlock, Gosh, this is something I really like too, but I think when I was sorting I classed it under my “pining” category… Let me see if I can find any off hand (Sorry if there are repeats; a lot of the ones I have are bed-sharing fics). Note that these are the ones that are tagged; I probably have more but haven’t sorted them yet:

Under The Covers by berlynn_wohl (E, 1,221 w. || Est. Rel., Shy Sherlock, Anal, Fluff) – John would have liked to have the lights on and seen everything, but Sherlock was shy, so they did it this way, always.

Apologies by Sherlock Holmes by ad0rably_0rdinary (G, 1,549 w. || Fluff, Worried Sherlock, Cuddles) – Sherlock sends John off with harsh words, and Sally points out that if he keeps it up, John could leave him. Worried Sherlock ensues, and he blunders his way into a cuddly apology.

29 January 2017 by wearitcounts (Sher_locked_up) (E, 1,765 w. || Anniversary, First Time, Insecure Sherlock, Love Confessions, Post-S4) – “That,” John says, “should have happened years ago. Maybe even the first time.”

The Marriage Proposal Negotiation by Goddess_of_the_Night (G, 2,161 w. || Dev. Rel., Possessive Sherlock, Insecure Sherlock, Fluff, First Kiss, Post Mary) – Sherlock hasn’t ever really done anything the traditional way, so of course it wouldn’t bother him to propose to John even though they’re not even dating. And the fact that John is already on a date with someone else when he decides to do it? Tedious.

Affirmation by jamlockk (E, 3,096 w. || First Time, Dev. Rel., PWP, Love Declarations, Emotional Sherlock, Comforting John, Gross Fluff) – “Sunlight dappled John’s skin, casting a glow across his spreadeagled form as he dozed among the rumpled sheets. Sherlock knew the expression on his face was hopelessly soft but for once did not care about showing his true feelings so openly. He simply stood there, in the doorway, gazing at the impossibly beautiful man currently snuffling softly in his slumber.” Part 8 of All the ways we love

Unmissed by 221b_hound (M, 3,235 w. || Est. Rel., Pet Names, Insecure Sherlock, Worried Sherlock) – John enjoys a good brawl during a case, and Sherlock begins to worry - when they retire, will John get bored? Will John get bored and leave. But even if John isn’t a genius about cases, he knows a thing or two about Sherlock’s panic attacks about them as a couple. With only four days till the wedding, he’s not about to let Sherlock continue with this misplaced notion that John will be bored in retirement. Part 20 of Unkissed

Acceptable Behaviour by bbcatemysoul (M, 3,449 w. || Fluff, Dev. Rel., Miscommunication, First Time) – Sherlock isn’t really sure why John wants to shag him, but he’s certain that if he’s careful to behave properly about it, John can be persuaded to keep doing it. In other news, John is a good boyfriend and Sherlock is an idiot.

Rumpled by WhimsicalEthnographies (E, 3,601 w. || Est. Rel., Insecure Sherlock, Fluff, PWP, Proposal, Bottomlock) – Then, halfway through a documentary on river otters that neither of them was paying attention to–how could John, with a gangly, limp consulting detective practically purring in his lap?–Sherlock suddenly bolted upright, looked at John with a perplexed expression and a crinkle above his nose, and blurted, “Marry me.” Part 4 of Longitudinal Cohort

Bed-Sharing Between Flatmates by testosterone_tea (T, 5,053 w. || 5 and Ones, Bed Sharing, PTSD John, Science, Whump, Insecure Sherlock) – 5 times Sherlock had an excuse to share John’s bed, and the one time he didn’t need one.

the lingering taste of orange juice by darcylindbergh (G, 5,824 w. || Pining Sherlock, Fluff, Miscommunications, Humour) – Sherlock felt the familiar heat surge in his abdomen again at the touch: hope strung taut between head and heart as in all the quiet moments between them, when Sherlock sometimes got the clues all mixed up and thought maybe John felt something too. For once, Sherlock is the idiot.

All the Flavours, Cherry and More by cwb (E, 6,274 w. || Est. Rel., Lip Gloss, Lingerie, Birthday Presents, Insecure Sherlock) – Sherlock feels a blush rising to touch his cheeks, more sensual than uncomfortable now that he knows John isn’t disgusted by him. No, John is responding exactly the way he had hoped.

Abatement by WhimsicalEthnographies (E, 6,816 w. || Est. Rel., Retirementlock, Fluff, Sherlock’s Self Esteem, Grumpy Sherlock) – “What’s wrong with you? You love the cottage,” John glances over to the passenger seat, then quickly turns his eyes back to the road. Driving was still not his forte, but considering Sherlock still couldn’t properly bend and lift his new knee enough to press and release the clutch, he had to make do. Not that Sherlock hadn’t tried to argue his way into the driver’s seat. “I love the cottage for a week or two, John. Don’t be deliberately obstuse,” Sherlock grumbles, sinking further in his seat. Well, as best he can with a four-week-old knee replacement. “And that’s all we’re going for, love,” John says out loud. But what he’s thinking is, shit. He knows.

In Which “John” Becomes a Synonym for “Help” by asignoftwo (T, 7391 w. || Injured John, Worried Sherlock, Fluff) –  After the fall Sherlock returns to Baker Street and is reunited with John. When John is injured on a case Sherlock is faced with the reality that he could lose John again, and it tears him apart.

High and Tight, Soft and Loose by cwb (E, 7,429 w. || Jealous John, Miscommunications / Misunderstandings, First Kiss / Time, BAMF John, Insecure Sherlock, Clueless Sherlock, Junk Size, UST / RST) – John pressed the knuckle of his index finger against his mouth and sighed. “So, you’re coiled like a spring and ready to be … sprung?” “If you want to be pedestrian about it, yes.” “Like I said, you should do something about that.” “And like I said, pedestrian. What would you have me do? Take up jogging? Yoga? Oh! Unless you mean –” “I don’t mean anything. Let’s drop it.”

For you, there’s only me by shock_blanket (E, 19,557 w. || Jealous Idiots, Virgin Sherlock, UST/RST, Pining, Miscommunication, First Kiss / Time, Insecure Sherlock, Masturbation) – Sherlock realizes he has fallen in love with John, but believes he is unlovable. Cue lots of pining and jealousy on Sherlock’s part, followed by our favorite cuddly marksman making it all better. Because for Sherlock, there’s only John.

State of Flux by Atiki (E, 24,655 w. || Sherlock POV, Slow Burn, First Kiss/Time, Friends to Lovers, Frottage, Cuddles and Snuggles, Awkwardness, Insecure/Virgin Sherlock, Romance) – John’s marriage is over and he is finally back home (i.e. at Baker Street, where he belongs). Sherlock is awfully insecure and John is awfully hesitant, and they’re both awkward idiots, of course, but they figure it out. Many First Times happen.

a good old-fashioned happy ending by darcylindbergh (E, 32,731 w. || Christmas, Frottage, Comfort, Est. Rel., Fluff, Insecure Sherlock) – For Christmas this year, Sherlock wants to get John something special: something every fairytale deserves. Part 2 of things fairy tales are made of

Bedroom Tales by Junejuly15 (M, 49,950 w. || Friends to Lovers, Through the Years, H/C, Military Kink, First Kiss / Time, Romance, Insecure Sherlock, Voyeurism, Post-TRF, Ficlets, Fluff and Angst, Fix-It Fics) – Bedroom Tales is a collection of John and Sherlock ficletsThey are set at various stages of their relationship and are in no particular order. Some are fluffy, some sexy, some angsty, there is hurt and comfort, romance and love. What unites them is that they all play in a bedroom, but not necessarily the one in 221B.

Breakable by MissDavis (E, 117,627 w. || Established, Fluff/Angst, Depression, Paralysis, Happy-ish Ending) – After John is seriously injured, Sherlock struggles to figure out how to help him, keep himself sane, and maybe, just maybe, get their life back to the way it’s supposed to be. Part 1 of Breakable Not Broken

Definitions by siennna (T, 101,528 w. || Dev. Rel., Pining, Fluff and Romance, First Kiss, Love Confessions, Fluff, Cuddles) – Sherlock’s journey in defining his flat mate and stumbling through the muddled world of emotion.{{This feels complete; the chapter count is listed as ? but I feel like it is done}}


Clearly this isn’t all I have, but I’m always open to having more of insecure Sherlock fics if anyone’s got them! Hope these satisfy you lovely!

Dino — A Special Performance

I also took too long to make this ;; I think I got this request the same day as the Woozi Soulmate!AU. 

I tried to finish this before I went on my vacation, but I couldn’t!! I’m finally back so I can post it. I’m sorry it took so long!! I couldn’t finish the other request before I came back, because I was doing tourism and I wasn’t very inspired, but I tried to do my best so I hope it’s worth the wait and that you’ll enjoy it!!

I’ll try to post my fake text requests tonight and I’ll try to finish the other bullet-point scenario request I have as soon as I can!!

  • “Together?? Are you sure they meant me and not another idol with the same name?” You asked Dino
  • “Yes (Y/N)!! There’s no way they were talking about another person”
  • “But why? Why so suddenly? You know I’m not as good of a dancer as you”
  • “I was showing the members the video we recorded last week dancing Very Nice and Hoshi proposed having you in one of our performances with me!! So he asked our manager and other staff members and they said yes!”
  • You were surprised, so you stayed silent after hearing that
  • The thing was, Dino said that he wanted you to perform with him in their next concert
  • The concert wasn’t a part of any of their tours, they just decided that they wanted to have a show for the fans, so they organised a small concert
  • You loved dancing with him, since dancing was one of the things that made you as close as you were at that moment
  • You had met at middle school, and quickly bonded over your love for dancing, then becoming best friends and staying that way until that same day
  • Years later, when you were going to start high school, he told you that he was going to be an idol, that he had already been accepted in a company, and he even mentioned the idea of you auditioning too for the same company and you congratulated him, genuinely happy for him
  • ‘If I got in with my dances, you could get in too!’ he said that day
  • You two knew, even if you auditioned and got accepted, you wouldn’t be in the same group, but you thought he probably just wanted to share more things with you, and both being idols would be a great thing in common
  • But you just didn’t want to become an idol
  • You loved dancing, also liked singing, and Chan taught you a little about rapping
  • But… It just wasn’t your dream, you couldn’t see a future where you were a famous idol
  • So, you rejected his idea and somehow managed to not grow apart even when he got more and more busy with his life as a trainee, and also after debuting
  • “I don’t know, Chan….” You told him, still not very sure of all this
  • “Please! I really want to perform with you on stage. And I want to introduce Carats to one of the most important people to me, my best friend who has been supporting me during all this years! I promise you’ll have fun!”
  • You didn’t even pay attention to the last things he said because you were moved when he said that you were one of the most important people to him
  • You knew that, but hearing him say it made you very happy
  • Maybe that was the thing that convinced you
    “So, what song would we be dancing?” Dino broke into a big smile after hearing your question, but unfortunately he didn’t have the answer to it yet
  • “I still don’t know, our choreographer said that he’d tell me later today. Should we go look for him?”
  • You were already at the company building with him. It was the place he spent more time at, so it was the place where you hung out most times
  • “He’s probably at the practice room, so let’s go!” Dino said, not even letting you answer before taking your hand and walking towards said room
  • You followed him to the practice room·         
  • And when you entered, you saw their choreographer next to the speakers, probably about to play a song·         
  • But he looked up from what he was doing when he heard the door open, and smiled when he saw you and Dino·         
  • “Oh, Chan! I was about to go look for you, I know what song you two will be dancing in the concert”·         
  • ‘how does he know if I have accepted the offer or not’ you whispered, low enough so that just Dino could hear it, and he chuckled·         
  • ‘well, since we were looking for him together, I guess he assumed it’·         
  • You shrugged and just stayed next to Dino as he asked the choreographer what song had he chosen·         
  • And to answer him, the older man started playing the song on the speakers·         
  • And just by the first seconds of it, both of you seemed to realize what type of song it was·         
  • “M-Mm… isn’t this song a little too…?” He didn’t know what word to use, since ‘sexy’ sounded a bit too informal, but the man knew what Chan was referring to·         
  • “Yeah, it’s a sexy song, but I think it’ll suit your styles! Do you want to start practicing now?” he asked, obviously more excited than you and Dino·        
  •  “Mm, can you give us a second?” ·         
  • The man nodded and Dino took you out of the room with him to talk·         
  • “We don’t have to do it if it’ll make you uncomfortable” He said, giving you a worried look·        
  •  “What about you? Do you want to?” 
  • you thought you saw him blushing, but his answer sounded convincing enough to make you doubt about it·         
  • “We already do this type of choreographies sometimes for our fans! I’m used to it”·         
  • Believing his words, you accepted·         
  • ‘It’s okay’ you thought 
  • ‘We’ve done different types of choreographies together, so maybe someday, with or without a performance in a concert, we would have done something like this’·         
  • But those thoughts didn’t  really calm down the sudden nervousness that you were feeling·         
  • You entered the practice room again and Dino told the choreographer that both of you were ready to start practicing·        
  • And so, you both practiced for almost three hours·         
  • The choreography wasn’t too hard, you had danced some choreographies that were much more difficult, and Dino as well·         
  • So in those three hours, you and Dino had perfectly learnt the steps of more than half of the song·         
  • It didn’t make you as nervous as you thought. Actually, Dino and you weren’t too close during the parts of the choreography that you had learnt that day·         
  • But then, when you got to the part right before the last chorus and the end of the song, the choreography involved you too slowly getting closer as you danced·         
  • Closer, closer, and even closer, until right before the chorus your bodies were practically pressed together and your faces were just a few centimeters apart·         
  • In that moment, time seemed to stop·         
  • You didn’t hear the music, you didn’t see anything but Dino’s face in front of you, his eyes staring right into yours·         
  • He was starting to breath heavily, since he was probably a little tired from all the practices he had to do in that day with his group members and now with you·         
  • You looked at his forehead, starting to sweat a little·         
  • Then his half-closed eyes, that were still looking at you, just as if he too couldn’t see anything around him except from your face in front of him·         
  • Then his cheeks, that looked slightly blushed, probably because his body was warm from dancing, or so you thought·         
  • Then, his parted lips·         
  • When you looked back to his eyes, they started to close little by little, as well as his face started getting even closer to you·         
  • Without even realizing, and hearing the loud and fast beats of your heart, you closed your eyes too·         
  • “That was a perfect detail for the choreography!!”·         
  • After hearing the choreographer’s voice, you too pulled away quickly and didn’t even look at each other again, you just looked at the man who had interrupted the moment·         
  • You felt a little upset at said interruption·         
  • But why?·         
  • You were about to kiss, you were best friends·         
  • You shouldn’t have wanted to kiss him ·         
  • Your heart shouldn’t have beat that fast·         
  • You shouldn’t feel anything like that for your best friend·         
  • And yet, you felt it·         
  • You felt love·         
  • “Okay, this is enough for today! We can continue whenever you want, since we’re going very fast and there’s still two weeks until the concert!”·         
  • He kept talking about something that you couldn’t really hear, since you were consumed in your thoughts·         
  • When you looked at Dino, you guessed he wasn’t listening to him either, since he seemed lost in thought too·         
  • Then, you heard the practice room door close, and you looked around·         
  • The choreographer had already left·         
  • “Mm, should we leave too?” You asked, trying to ignore the awkward atmosphere around you two·         
  • Trying to ignore the fact that you were millimeters away from kissing just a few minutes ago·         
  • But it seemed like he wasn’t ignoring it·         
  • Like he didn’t want to ignore it·         
  • “Can we repeat that part again?” He asked·         
  • You were surprised to hear that question, but you tried to think that he just wanted to practice the choreography once more, and not because you two could have kissed and once you were that close, you could be tempted to kiss again·         
  • “Okay, I’ll turn on the music” 
  • You walked towards the speakers and started playing the song with the laptop that was placed on top of them and connected to them·        
  • And when the music got to that part where you were interrupted just minutes ago, once again you got closer and closer to each other·         
  • Again, everything around you disappeared, even the music that had not stopped·         
  • All you could see was him·         
  • All you could hear was the beating of your heart, getting faster as your faces got closer·         
  • And suddenly, all you could feel were his lips on yours·          ·         
  • When you pulled away, you didn’t know for how long that kiss lasted·         It could have been a few seconds·         
  • Or could have been a few minutes·         
  • But you wanted to kiss him again and repeat that moment over and over·         
  • You looked at him, but he wasn’t looking at you·         
  • Instead, he was looking to the ground·         
  • What could you say? Should you ask him if everything’s okay? Should you confess or should you wait for him to do it? ·         
  • What if he didn’t feel anything and just did that because it seemed like a good detail for the choreography? As his choreographer had mentioned before·         
  • Then, maybe the reason he couldn’t look at you would be because he felt sorry about doing that·         
  • But then, he denied all that, still not looking at you·         
  • “Maybe I should apologize for doing that,·         But I’m not really sorry”·         
  • Since he made a long pause, you thought he was waiting for you to say something, but before you could, he talked again·         
  • “I like you. I’ve liked you for a very long time”·         
  • Then, he finally looked at you, and you could see his face, red from the embarrassment and maybe nervousness wanting to know if you felt the same way·         
  • “If you don’t… feel anything, it’s okay, and we don’t have to do this performance and-”·         
  • “No” you cut him off “E-Even if I didn’t feel anything, this is just a performance so we can just dance like we have been doing until now b-because–”
  • As you finished saying that, you saw his expression change from nervous to a little disappointed
  • You were surprised seeing the sadness in his eyes, and inmediately felt bad for trying to tell him that he didn’t need to apologize with those words that sounded as if you were rejecting him but didn’t want to cancel the performance and just be professional about it and perform
  • You knew you could just have been straighforward and say that you felt the same way
  • You repeated his words in your head
  • ‘I’ve liked you for a very long time’
  • For some reason, you hadn’t realized sooner, but you were sure that you had been feeling the same way for a very long time as well
  • “You’re right, we can’t cancel it now, right? If you’re okay with it, then-” he interrupted your thoughts
  • but before he could finish, you cut him off again
  • maybe you had used the wrong words before, but you still could fix it
  • “I don’t want to cancel the performance and I’m okay with it because I feel the same way”
  • After saying that, you felt as if your face was burning as you blushed
  • He must have felt the same way too when his cheeks blushed again
  • Then, he let out a sigh of relieved, and laughed
  • “Seriously… Why didn’t you say that before…”
  • Hearing him laughing calmed you down inmediately, and soon you were laughing with him
  • “I’m sorry, I just got so nervous-”
  • “It’s okay” He said once he stopped laughing, and just looked at you with a smile on his face
  • “So in two weeks, I might not be able to introduce you to Carats just as my best friend anymore!
  • Now I can tell them that you’re finally my girlfriend

BTS Reactions to their s/o Being in a Girl Group

Request:  Hi! please can you do a (possibly long) bts written reaction to their idol gf being a drummer, dancer and rapper in a girl group! :)

Note: Wow I love this idea :’)) wow I wish I was this talented aha, I hope you like it! Some of these may not be as funny as they are purely fluff, and that’s mostly because I feel that a passion of music is something that I can relate to and can be very romantic about. I let my own feeling of passion take over my writing of this one since I’ve seen the same sort of funny idol reactions a lot and would like to get a bit deep <3 (P.S. you asked for long, and I did my best to provide !!)

Jin would, in his usual behavior, have a sort of motherly pride while seeing his s/o make all of her dreams come true. He would quickly become her number one supporter, and attend every performance that his schedule would allow. Despite seeing all of these performances, the amazed reactions he would provide never seemed to be short of the happiness he felt when he first saw the stages she performed, always earning the same shy smile in response that he found beautiful. He would love practicing in the same area as her, despite never getting work done because the endless hours of admiring her (cue constant sounds of “wahhhh” and sneaky little winks and/or blown kisses whenever she reacts), plus giving her tips anywhere he felt he was in the place to. The sessions tend to end with him asking her to teach him some of her key dances and working incredibly hard to actually learn them so he could impress her as much as she impressed him every day. I also feel that she would inspire him to strive for more. To fly higher, and get to a place where he feels like he’s meant to stand beside her. A place where he can finally stop admiring and be on equivalent groups (as if he isn’t already nearly perfect psh).

P.S. If she were to ever create solo music, you bet he’s the one adding in any vocals. A few more songs to add to his public playlist :))

“Have I ever told you how truly talented you are?”

“Yes, Seokjin. Around five times in the last thirty seconds.”

“Well, you are truly talented.”

Imagine that huge bright and true smile of his, yes you know, that one. Now imagine him wearing it for hours on end just because he saw his love performing live. This relationship would make everyone so happy, members and fans alike, just because Namjoon is so bright while being with someone he loves and shares the same passion with. I would expect so many collabs and demos and cute little dance videos (in which he makes an adorable fool of himself but it’s okay because the whole video is filled with his laughter and that brightens up any day). He would try, try so hard at learning the drums, but she would refuse to allow him to even go near her set after the third ripped drum head and fifth broken stick, so he any videos including drums were of him showing off her skills. A lot of his compositions would become love songs, and everyone would know exactly why after seeing his vlives in Mon Studio featuring more appearances of his s/o curled up comfortable in a corner when shes not busy herself. It would be a well known fact that alone, they would often confess all of the poured out feelings they had and use it to their musical advantage. As for the kind of music they’d create together, it would range from intensely lit music that got everyone dancing or, their personal favorite, soft r&b pieces in which they let everything out and/or bring attention to important things.

“I swear if you lay one finger on my drum I will take back my studio key and never allow you back in.”

“IT WAS ONE DRUMSTICK”

“ONE, MY ASS. I’VE HAD TO BUY SPARES BECAUSE I’M SCARED OF YOU.”

They would have a deep knowledge of how one another felt and it would spark many feelings that would never be deniable. These two would often wander off to a world of their own while in the midst of tons of people, just because their conversations were untouchable by the outside world. Also, despite their endless similarities, their endless differences would inspire one another to reach for so much more. Yoongi’s wish of learning the drums would be fulfilled to full extent (thanks to a few all-nighters just because they couldn’t think of leaving each others’ sides). He may teach his s/o a few of his composing tricks, to which she would be able to contribute to her group’s music and be endlessly thankful to him for. Yoongi’s music would become better and better (somehow) and his s/o would be known more and more for hr endless work ethic. This would be a good thing for their members, too, since one improving member can easily inspire the other members to improve with them. This relationship shows strength.

P.S. nobody understands their sense of cruel humor, and give up trying to after the two dedicate (savage as fuck) diss tracks to one another as a Christmas present.

“I thought you would make up for your height in other ways, but alas, I’ve been disappointed once again.”

“Sure, Mr. Jjang Jjang Man Boong Boong.”

Bless this boy, it’s another case of the endless smile :’)) I believe Hoseok would be more of an inspiration to his s/o than the other way around. Her multiple talents may be on showcase for all to marvel at (which Hoseok does openly and happily) but she may see the boy being much more talented than her, since his talents are long lasting and influential worldwide. He’d create endless amounts of happiness, drive people to be so much better than they ever thought they could be, and create a sense of safety with only a few words. She’d love every second he took out of his day to watch her train and practice, for she would be his center of attention and there was no feeling like it. He would inspire her to take her already many talents and make them better. Hoseok, on the other hand, would know about the effects he has on her (they’re pretty obvious) and continue them ‘til the ends of the earth.He would find the girl fascinating and so incredibly lovely. He would only ever want the best for her and would do whatever he could do to help her get to it while keeping it fun and exciting. It would a because she inspired him. After meeting her, his dance became smoother, his raps became easier to write, and his sunshine smile became a bit brighter. He thought of helping her as returning the favor.

P.S. Imagine the mixtapes and choreography they could work on in their spare times…. bangtan bombs just became a little more lit.

“Hoseok come on, let’s run trough it one more time before wrapping up.”

“You know you’re at your limit. Don’t push yourself. Besides, why would I want to continue practicing when the arCADE JUST OPENED DOWN THE STREET LET’S GOOOO.”

“…You better win me a damn stuffed animal.”

Jimin’s affection equals hours of silent work by one another and by the end of the day, feeling closer than ever before. He would be impressed by her mounts of talent, but wouldn’t let himself openly fawn over it too much. Not because he didn’t want to seem fanboyish or anything, since she would already be certain that he was her number one fan at all times, but because he knew how much more it would mean to her if said only on occasion. He would treat her rightfully as an equal and she would know it was for the best because it meant not being alone on some sort of pedestal. It wouldn’t be until late nights, when she’s stressed and close to giving up, that he would take her in his arms and reassure her that she is amazing and talented and that if she tries hard enough, there is guaranteed success. Her most trusted source of harsh criticism would become Jimin because of this, since she knows that he never sugarcoats anything, and she would do the same. They would create the prettiest dances together, too; taking a like talent and making something extraordinary from it through humor, comfort, and untouchable connection. Undoubtedly, dorky behavior prevailed from the two, and every fan witnessed it in countless twitter wars of just videos of each other. Jimin making a terrible drum beat, his girlfriend taking a key part of one her dances and messing it up in an incredibly embarrassing way, him dancing the hottest girl group choreography, her rapping straight fire in her best aegyo voice; free time with these two would be an adventure.

“Jimin, if you post one more video of that damn rap, I swear I will pull out the Good Girl, Bad Girl clip.”

Kim Taehyung

Tae would be the perfect opposite of Jimin. He would know how amazing she was, and tell her about it every chance that he got. All of her group’s songs would be on his playlist and he would blast it throughout the studio or dorm. He would watch her practice and marvel at her in wonder. He would ask her to teach him how to play drums and giggle happily every time he messed up, having to leave it to her to have such a wonderful skill. He would watch her write lyrics and express them in her own way of rap and just smile because he loved to see how happy it made her. Her dance always infatuated him as he watched from beside the mirrors, showing her that he saw the emotions she was portraying and that he understood what they meant. Whenever he got to help writing lyrics for Bangtan, he would go straight to her for help because he looked up to her. He would love everything about her and make it known, only asking for her love in return, which he wouldn’t have to ask for in the slightest—since anybody would be willing to love such a beautiful person. He would be able to keep her stable and excited with his constant humor and playful attitude. It would never bother how much he admired her, because she admired him too in a lot more was than he would think. Whenever he watched practices, every member would love it because his smile had ‘the power to heal exhaustion.’

“Taetae i would love to help you right now but I have a performance tomorrow to prepare for.”

“Oh, well can I watch?”

“You have to go- no don’t you dARE GIVE ME THAT SMILE.”

Jeon Jungkook

A Golden Maknae and an incredibly talented female idol…. music shows would have fun with that. I feel like Kookie is often singled out for having multiple talents, so he would really enjoy knowing someone with that same kind of recognition. The two could easily learn to fill in one another’s weaknesses and become the duo of the century, making continuous demos and covers in any downtime that they have together. According to Suga’s birthday video, Jungkook has been wishing for a drum teacher rather than being self taught! It would be a great way to learn something new, and his s/o could learn something from him as well. These two would build one another up really high and support each other the whole way, creating an unstoppable pair of growing artists. They would’t just keep to themselves though, I feel that they would, together, motivate both groups to become more ad more. They would pour out ideas to each other late at night, build upon each idea, then return for thoughts of other members. The dependence they could create for one another is amazing and lovely, and the fun they can have while doing so could turn their passions into something they never want to get rid of.

P.S. Jungkook’s snarky remarks probably cause a lot of playful competition between the two.

“Well, this idea seemed really nice, and fits our concept well. What do you think, Kookie?”

“Are you sure that you, of all people can even pull that off?”

“I sure as hell can! Just you watch, smartass.”

“Yes, yes, sure you can, honey. I also think it’ll help if you add…”

He chuckled lowly, somewhat tired from his schedule today but coming home to you was his favourite part of the day. Vernon hugged you gently while you held onto him tightly even though he was bit a sweaty from dancing most of the day.

“Happy birthday to you too babe.” Vernon gave you a kiss, smile in the middle of it.

The two of you shared the same birthday which was one of the first things that you both talked about and kind of bonded over when the two of you first met.

It’s been two years since and you both have had a great relationship together. Whenever it came to occasions, you totally freaked out over what to get Vernon, how to celebrate the occasion with him and make the day feel special and so on. Vernon could always tell how much you over thank everything. He found it adorable how much effort and though you put into making him feel special. Vernon would always tell you that you would need to calm down and he’d comfort you.

Jumbled Memories - Behzinga

Ethan X Reader

Y/N’s POV

My ears were ringing. My head was fuzzy. My memories jumbled. My eyesight was blurred and my words were slurred. I was drunk. Ridiculously, dangerously, stupidly drunk. My body moved to the beat of the music that pounded through my ears probably damaging my hearing but I didn’t care, I was on a high (Of life… and alcohol I guess) and I was having the best time ever, I felt truly free. Ethan, my boyfriend of 2 months, and our other friends had decided to keep a low profile tonight, sitting on the sofas surrounding the dance floor - they were all being boring shits basically.

I’ve been waiting for you

Hi! My entry for @eruri-of-the-month on the theme ‘waiting’

_______

The world had turned black, faded in muted greys at first before succumbing to the inky darkness which enveloped all colour and sound. Nothing existed anymore, a bleak landscape that was shapeless, nameless, lifeless and Levi embraced it finally, giving in to inevitability as he realised that this was it, his end. His unceremonious and rather embarrassing end.

Faint crashes broke through the cloud but they failed to rouse him from where he lay, cries and shouts merging into a mist that didn’t matter anymore. Once this had been everything to Levi, a place that held so much meaning and he’d fought to keep his research neat and tidy, papers piled alphabetically and books stacked in a uniform manner to try and give order to an otherwise chaotic existence.

His lids flickered, vision now useless in the haze and a slight flash of red caused his eyes to roll closed again, the brightness hurting his retinas and adding severity to the already fucked up situation. Levi knew there was no point in struggling. What good would that do? Starved of oxygen, he allowed fate to march in and remained still, attempted to forget all about the scene around him. His state. All of his work. The whole reason for living.

It could have been worse, he mused as thick smoke surrounded his prone naked body. It could have been a less destructive fire that ravaged the building, one easily escaped from. If that had happened he’d surely be out on the street with no clothes, soot and dust his only protection from nudity. However, twisted luck meant that Levi stayed stranded, a blow to the head rendering him incapacitated and muggy, unable to even consider self preservation so here he lay like he’d entered this world, bare and lost.

Moving on is a choice. It’s not something that comes with time, it’s not waking up one day and noticing the sun shining a little brighter.
It’s throwing out old pictures and burning his shirts with your best friends.
It’s choosing not to check up on his social medias, because you know it’ll get you right back to square one.
It’s listening to his favorite songs, just because you like them, and not because it reminds you that the two of you share the same taste in music.
It’s smiling when your friends brings him up, it’s choosing to stay quiet when they ask you about him.
Moving on is walking down the street where he kissed you that one night and not feel anything.
It’s smiling at strangers with the same spark in their eyes as him.
It’s wishing happiness upon him. It’s wanting him to succeed, even though you aren’t going to be there to support him, and you know that’s his own fault.
Moving on is doing things you never did before. It’s dancing in public and it’s trying new foods. It’s buying clothes with different colors and it’s cutting your hair super short.
It’s smiling at strangers and going out with no make up.
Moving on is learning to love yourself, learning that you’re just fine on your own. It’s realizing that you don’t need him, and it’s smiling at the thought of that. And remember, love; Time does not heal wounds. You do.
—  Self love is the most important kind of love.
Jungkook Scenario: Birthday Wish.

Request: Can I make a scenario request where you(bestfriend) go to BTS concert secretly to surprise Jungkook cause it’s his birthday. Jungkook also asks you to be his girlfriend during the concert and introduces you to the members. Thanks and love your blog!

Genre: Fluff


You assessed the contents of your bag and then moved your eyes to the table in front of you and smiled while looking at the pretty cupcake topped with white cream, little red stars and a tiny candle just so you could put it in a pretty package, it was your first time trying baking and it was completely worth it since it was for Jungkook’s birthday.
As his best friend, you wanted to make something especial for him on his day, since he was working so hard and all of that you thought that maybe he didn’t have the time to plan something, but lucky him, he had you.

The little smile never leaved your face while you were on the bus in your way to see him because Jungkook didn’t know you were doing so, all of this was a surprise, a kind of impulsive surprise if you were honest with yourself, but you were hoping him to like the surprise, the cupcake and your presence.

-Mostly my presence – you mumbled to yourself, and stopped in your tracks after stepping out of the bus for a moment because of your words, an instant rush of heat got you and you shook your head to both sides. –Focus Y/N – you said to yourself and kept on walking.

You had arranged everything to be at the BTS concert so you could surprise Jungkook right there, it took you a lot of insisting and will but now you had a VIP backstage pass that you were definitely using at the end of the concert.
So now you were waiting in the line, daydreaming about all you were going to do and mostly about Jungkook.

You moved your eyes fast to your feet, feeling your cheeks tingling. Being Jungkook’s best friend was definitely one of the best things that had happened to you, he could manage to make your days especial because he was like everything to you. 

-If only he knew…-

[TRANS] KAI - EXO'luXion Photobook Interview

Q: Do you tend to get nervous before standing on stage?

Jongin: When I was younger I really tended to get nervous. Should I call it perfectionism? I really can’t show a performance which is not to my liking to other people. That is why I do not really prefer freestyle [dance]. I am not satisfied with expressing myself through impromptu freestyle. I feel awkward to show other people the things that are not my 100%. During trainee days, I remember that I always got really nervous before evaluation time that I trembled all over my body. Other than this, there are also other times when I felt really nervous. I was trembling during debut showcase and standing on the debut stage. I also trembled on the first Dream Concert, the first time going up on stage for concert. On the first day of our first solo concert, it is not only me but the other members were also nervous. In the waiting room we shouted, took deep breaths, anyway it was chaotic. But then right before we went up on stage, there was a short moment of silence and after that we all smiled. And we started dancing. At some point, we started enjoying the tension before going up on stage. Should I call it thrill? Tension is something that starts from pressure but it includes the feeling of expectancy from standing on the stage to show [performance] for the first time. There is also a thrill of my own image. When the audience see the performance that I myself is satisfied with, what kind of feeling will they have? I enjoy thinking things like that.

Q: Who is the member that you talk with the most in the waiting room?
Jongin: Suho hyung. I tend to talk to Suho hyung about the performance with Suho hyung a lot before the concert. But honestly before going up on stage, rather than talking with other members, there are more times when I check my body condition.

Q: EXO members unanimously praise your performance talent. To be able to feel your sexiness through the various sides of your performance is very impressive. What kind of man do you think as sexy man?
Jongin: I think a man who is covered with sexiness even without taking off [his clothes] is the real sexy man. A man who gives a sexy aura instead of flaunting “I am sexy”.

Q: What do you do when you want to look sexy?
Jongin: When I want to look sexy on stage or when I sing songs with sexy mood, I put emphasis and dance. Or sway my pelvis very hard. Hahaha.

Q: What kind of artist do you want the audience to think of you as, when you stand on the stage?
Jongin: There are a lot of times that I think vaguely about what kind of artist I want to be, but I have never put words into it. Hm, if I have to explain and put it into words, it’s a deep artist. I think it can be expressed as “I want to be an artist that is like a deep ocean whose end is unknown”.

Q: What do you think are the EXO members’ strength?
Jongin: Baekhyun hyung is really fun. I think there are people who feel that Baehyun hyung looks childish because he always says funny things, makes people laugh and is a cheerful person. But hyung’s greed and passion in music are tremendous. He always worries about EXO and the performances. Before he became EXO, he had never learned dance at all and only done singing, but right now the side of him pulling his weight and dancing well is amazing. It would not be possible without Baekhyun hyung’s passion. D.O hyung really sings well. From the EXO [members], I like D.O hyung’s vocal the best. He deliver emotions but I think he was born with it. I think singers, dancers, people who draw, are the type of occupations that express emotions and hyung is really outstanding in that part. I want to take after that part [from him]. Xiumin hyung is kind, cute and simple and honest. It is really cool to see his attitude in doing his best in everything. I also like that he listens to the younger [members] attentively. Hyung really has a lot of strengths in every side of him that it is hard to pick and say, “This strength of Xiumin hyung is the best.” He is a good person. Suho hyung, more than anyone else, thinks of EXO a lot. He thinks about EXO endlessly, and share his thoughts to me endlessly. Sometimes it seems like he thinks about EXO too severely. I really like his acting and on stage the side of him being devoted is amazing. He has a strong sense of responsibility because he is the leader. Chen hyung is really kind. Should I say he is simple? I really like that strength of Chen hyung. I acknowledge that hyung is good in singing and dancing but if I have to choose one thing that I want to take after from Chen hyung is kind heart. Honestly in daily lives, I tend to get misunderstood a lot. Because my skin is tanned, expression is dark and I have dark circles. So there are people who misunderstand me as a cold person and I receive a lot of stress. To the extent that I practice smiling. But Chen hyung always smiles and is very kind, that he gives the people who see him a good feeling. I really want to take after that side of him. The thing that I want to take after from Chanyeol hyung is his greed in composition. I always get jealous of hyung’s ability when he makes a song and play it for us. Someday I hope I can learn how to compose from Chanyeol hyung and make music myself. I am also learning it by myself but it is hard. Sehun is loyal. He always thinks of the members and his loyalty is strong. I think it is a really big asset. Because as much as Sehun keeps his loyalty in his daily lives, it will all come back to him. I always feel thankful towards Lay hyung. I am thankful that he runs the schedules in China himself and still puts effort to do EXO team activities together too, but I am thankful of his presence. The fact of him being with us is something to be thankful for. Not only the side of him doing both singer and actor activities side by side, but also his passion in music is outstanding. I also want to take after of that passion from Lay hyung. Honestly for me I cannot really do things well unless it is something I like or am interested in.

Q: Tell us your thoughts after completing EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion.
Jongin: If we want to say 44 shows are long, they are long, if we want to say they are short, they are short. EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion has finished but honestly I want to do this performance format longer. Because I want to do it better every time. But only if I brush that feeling, I can prepare for the next performance. I think that the regretful feeling that I feel while doing EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion may be nourishment when I get ready for the next stage. I want to show a better performance to the fans, a performance that I myself do not regret and am satisfied with. That is my dream.

Q: In “Baby, Don’t Cry” stage, there was a spotlight stage for you and Sehun, right? You showed off cool dance and water dance. Is there any part where you would like to add more of your idea?
Jongin: I really like composing performance but when the director, Jaewon hyung, suggested the water performance, I really thought it was a cool idea. I considered it a perfect choreography to the extent where there was not any need to think about “it will be good to add something more here”. I simply thought that I had to complete that performance with my style.

Q: What was “my style” that you talk about?
Jongin: I do not put effort to simply just dance well. A “cool” feeling is important but more than that I think delivering the emotion felt in a song is the most important thing. We feel a certain emotion when we listen to the song lyrics with a lot of people. It will be good if I can express the emotion through my dance and the audience can feel more of my emotion while looking at my performance.

Q: Do you mean that you want to make a stage which the audience can “feel” instead of “see”?
Jongin: Yes. I want to make a stage that is shared with the audience, and a stage that is more open. I mean [a stage] that will leave the audience’s interpretation and feeling open. When I express a sad emotion, it is possible for the audience to feel a happy feeling. It is because even if we see the same thing, the emotion one feels is different. Things like this can be some sort of fun when looking at my stage too, can’t it?

Q: But when the audience look at your performance, they think that it is “beautiful” or “sexy”.
Jongin: I like a beautiful and sexy performance as well. But beyond that, I think that emotion clearly exists. For example when I did “Baby, Don’t Cry”, it was the same choreography and movement but I could show different performance according to my emotion on that particular day. One day I expressed a hopeless story, one day a light emotion. Other day I dressed the stage with a good feeling.

Q: Did your emotion change every day when you performed “Baby, Don’t Cry” for 44 times?
Jongin: Yes, it changed every day. Because every day my mood is different. I dance based on the mood at that time, before I go up on stage. Therefore there was a day when I danced while smiling, other day I added some movements. The details were slightly different, there was also a time when I buried my head [in my hands]. I always did a little differently in those 44 performances. That is the kind of performance I seek to do.

Q: The gesture of you sweeping your head while standing up on “Baby, Don’t Cry” last part is very sexy. Did you aim for it?
Jongin: You can see it that way. I aimed to do “Baby, Don’t Cry” last movement perfectly. Haha, but for the rest I did not aim for it. My hair was long and as I did the performance I sweated so I swept my hair a lot.

Q: When you dance, it seems like you season it with ballet feelings. Do you also add ballet movements to “Baby, Don’t Cry” dance?
Jongin: I didn’t insert ballets movement intentionally. But the basis of all dance is ballet and since I was young I have done ballet so naturally in my movements [the ballet feeling] oozes.

Q: What is the most memorable stage in EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion?
Jongin: “El Dorado” is the most memorable. Lyrics and LED sticks, as well as the gold outfit and other things that form “El Dorado” might be very childish if put into text. But the performance was not the least bit childish and very cool [instead]. That was the director’s [Shim Jaewon] strength. For me “El Dorado” performance shows the end of the directing. If we consider it as movies, it can be The Lord of the Rings or Spiderman. If we only think about the story, they might feel like a cartoon but they really are not childish at all, aren’t they?

Q: When do you think you commune with the audience during EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion?
Jongin: Director Shim Jaewon emphasised, “Make eye contact with the audience a lot.” I also agreed with it. During the concert performance, I intended to commune with the audience while looking at them one by one. Different to broadcast performances, at concert performances while communing with the audience the energy is boiling? It’s simply feeling like “You are looking at me too right? I am also looking at you.” I think the real commune is as a singer, boiling up the audience’s energy on stage and communicate together.

Q: During this concert tour, there were times when you felt upset because of the injury. On the other hand, is there a thing that you obtained thanks to the injury?
Jongin: Yes. Before EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion [dot] I injured my leg that I intuitively think “I will not be able to stand on the stage”. It was very hard after that day. Because it was a performance of EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion tour finale that I had waited for, my mental pain was huge too. After EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion Seoul first concert, due to small injury I think I do not have a lot of concerts that I am 100% satisfied with. So I prepared hard to perform a performance that I would be 100% satisfied with in EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion [dot] but in the end I got an injury so I was very dejected. To the extent where I wanted to run away from EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion [dot]. I am very sorry towards the audience and the members. When the concert started, I went up on stage and performed at my part and down after my part was done. It was very awkward and I was embarrassed. When I was up on the stage, I always faced the audience and smiled but below the stage I feel like crying. The thought like “What am I doing right now?” kept whirling in my head, and I was really jealous at the members who danced on stage. Then there were times when I went near to the audience area by lift and communicated with them, in the end I could not hold my tears. The emotions that I supressed, exploded. And at the same time, I received consolation from the audience. From that day, I thought about what kind of performance I could do while sitting on the chair, gradually I got used to the performances that I was given. The lesson that I felt from that time is for me to be satisfied and to show the audience an even better performance, “Let’s take a good care.”

Q: In an interview, you have ever said, “At the time when I do not dance, I gain a lot of things”. If you became the audience and saw EXO’s performance, what would you feel?
Jongin: There was a time when I said, “I also want to see EXO’s concert as an audience.” But because of this injury, I basically have experienced it. There were a lot of feelings that I felt when I looked at EXO stages from below the stage. After looking from outside, at which part the audience went wild, which part I felt lacking, I got to know the strengths and witnesses of EXO stages. I think in the future it will be the foundation of the performances that we will show. Referring to the things I felt, reflecting them on the next concert, I think we will be able to show a better performance and do better.​

At Ron and Hermione’s wedding, Harry and Hermione shared a dance to ‘O Children” reminding Hermione of a happy moment in a dark time not so long before. 

Ron didn’t quite understand why that particular song, but had the feeling it had to do with the time he left them in the woods. He didn’t question, but danced with his little sister, and watched his wife, smiling and dancing around in the craziest way.

Harry and Hermione were dancing the same way they had in the tent just years before, and to be able to share this dance with her brother–in a way–made her night even better.

anonymous asked:

hey nicole! so I'm fucking Ryden trash and I relate to this blog so hard and I was just wondering if you had any Ryden head canons and if so can you share them?

hi! im happy to know that im #relatable and oh boy i do have ryden headcanons!! i think ive talked about some of them already but im gonna try to add a few more

  • live in denver  
  • slow dance lore 
  • idk if u remember this post but i like to joke that the sun/moon trope was relevant even back in 2006? so imagine brendon and ryan playing around with eyeliner and one of them, probably brendon, ends up drawing a tiny moon on ryan’s face/hand? ryan doesnt even ask him why but just laughs and goes for the same thing with bren and draws a sun instead,, eventually it kind of becomes their thing? seeing themselves as the sun and moon
  • brendon and ryan dancing to more songs by the killers!! it doesnt even have to be dancing actually, they could be lying next to each other and listening to sam’s town and when they get to when you were young brendon cant help but think how “the beautiful boy who doesnt look like jesus but talks like a gentleman” reminds him of ryan
  • them alone in a hotel room, ryan playing guitar, brendon singing along and not being able to take his eyes off his boy. thats all
  • august 31st 2007, 4 am, it’s raining heavily in seattle but ryan and bren have managed to find a restaurant where they can wait for the downpour to stop. brendon in his worn out grey hoodie has never been more beautiful in ryans eyes. ryan feels like he’s in some sort of a jetlag ‘awake-but-dreaming’ state. he’s already writing northern downpour in his head
  • brendon reading the lyrics to northern downpour for the first time and knowing what they truly mean because they’re about the night in seattle when it was only the two of them and it all felt right and perfect, so he wants to bring it up and talk and cry and just be with ryan but he cant find the courage to do so
  • both of them refusing to admit their feelings for each other and trying to belittle their relationship to some “i get lonely on tour and you’re one of my closest friends so i need you” sort of fling,, and they need to talk about it and figure out what it all means but they always end up with “we’ll talk next time” until they get to the point where there’s no next time

god im sure there are more scenarios that have crossed my mind and i should mayhaps write them down sometime? also here are 2 of my fav fics that i count as actual headcanons

Right Where We Left Off (Jimin, OC) Part 1

OC- Song Yujin

Yujin stared at the TV screen, the announcer’s voice echoing in her ears. “Bangtan Boys are back! Catch them as they go on their promotional tour this month!" 

The boy group was having fan signing  events across the nation and Yujin stared at the list of places they would be visiting flash before her eyes. Her heart stopped when she saw her hometown, Busan, written at the very end of the list. 

Then the boys flashed on the screen saying their usual greeting. Rap monster spoke first saying how excited they were to meet the fans. Next was Jhope who happily invited everyone to come and see them. And then his face flashed on the screen, causing a thousand memories to resurface. She wanted to look away but somehow couldn’t. 

"We can’t wait to see you all!” Jimin said excitedly, shooting the camera his signature smirk followed by a smile. And then the advertisement ended, leaving Yujin breathless; even if she had probably watched it a million times today. 

~~~
Once upon a time, Park Jimin and Song Yujin were best friends. They had met in middle school and had become close throughout their high school years. They did everything together; sharing the same classes, joining dance competitions, and even playing pranks on their schoolmates. They were inseparable and Yujin couldn’t imagine her life without him by her side. 

That is until Jimin decided to sign a contract at Bighit and became a trainee at their company. He was talented; with good looks and a charming personality. He was basically the whole package which is why it didn’t surprise Yujin when the company had spotted him and wanted to make him a trainee.

“That’s great Jimin! You’re going to be famous!” She perked, happy at the news that her best friend is finally making it to the big stage. 

“Yeah,” he laughed. “But I’m kind of nervous, you know? I mean, there’ll be a lot of really talented people there and the chances of me debuting–”

“Is huge!” She said, squeezing his shoulder. “You’re really talented, Jimin-ah. You’re going to make it, I’m sure of it!”

Jimin sighed as he glanced at her with a smile, “You always had so much faith in me.”

Yujin grinned, “Of course!”

“I wish you didn’t.”

At that Yujin frowned, “Why not?”

Jimin shrugged, “I don’t want to disappoint you. You know how much I value what you think and I don’t want to let you down.” He gave her a weak smile. 

Yujin sighed and gave him a half hug, “Oh tsk. You’re never a disappointment Jiminie~. Never.”

Jimin paused before finally giving her a hug. Yujin was surprised at the sudden gesture and she stiffened. Jimin liked skinship and would usually do it with her, like draping his arm across her shoulders, hooking his arm on hers, and even going as far to holding her hand in public. Although Yujin was pretty much used to it, there was something about the hug that made her feel something weird in her stomach. It felt different… like it actually meant something.  

“Thank you, Yujin. ” he whispered in her ear, making her shiver. “For believing in me.” At that, she relaxed and gave in to the hug. 

“You’re welcome, Jimin." 

~~~

Everything changed after that and it wasn’t just the fact that he had to move into the city to do his training. 

Yujin started seeing Jimin in a different way. She felt her heart beat a little faster at the sight of him; she constantly awaited his phonecalls or text messages and when he did, she felt so happy as if she were floating on cloud 9; she acted more feminine around him which Jimin found a little weird at first, considering that she used to be a little boyish but eventually found it quite nice. He even commented that he liked it and that it suited her more, which made Yujin’s heart do flips. 

The time they spent apart from each other had made Yujin realize that she was actually in love with her best friend. She had loved him all along! She just didn’t see it amidst the time they spent goofing and fooling around. 

As the months passed, Yujin’s feelings grew while Jimin had become busier and more focused on his training. From weekly visits to their hometown, it had become a once or twice a month thing. Messages were sent back and forth but mostly contained casual greetings and one-word sentences. From phone calls that usually lasted for hours, it had become short and straightforward, with Jimin always being too tired to keep up with the conversation. 

Yujin didn’t show it but she was half angry and unhappy at the status of their relationship. She had tried her best to be supportive and encouraging but Jimin seemed to completely ignore her efforts. It was like he wasn’t even trying to keep in touch and like he was on purposely trying to keep a good distance between them. 

Her other friends had warned her of what could happen but she ignored them and protested that Jimin wasn’t like that. He would never exchange their friendship for a chance at being an idol. 

Would he?

Apparently, that was her first mistake. And she never thought that Park Jimin–her Jimin–would eventually let her down. 

~~~

Yujin sat on her bed that night, thinking about the past year she had gone through without him. After that night, she had cut all ties with him, not wanting anything to do with him anymore. He had made it clear that he doesn’t need her in his new life and even went on with it like she was just a ghost from her past. Yujin looked at the clock and found it blinking 1:35 PM. 

Funny, she scoffed. The same time it happened…


1 year ago

"You don’t understand!” Jimin yelled at her. 

He had come to visit her on that weekend and it was supposed to be filled with fun and a lot of catching up, as Yujin planned. But they ended up fighting in the middle of the night, outside Yujin’s house, when Jimin refused to even do stuff with her. When he told her that he was only here to let her know that he won’t be visiting anytime soon, it felt like a cold hard slap on the face. They weren’t together or anything but it felt like he wa actually breaking up with her…like he didn’t want to be friends with her anymore. 

“Then explain to me, Jimin!” She yelled back. “We hardly  even see each other and it wouldn’t hurt to return my calls or even send a text once in while!" 

"I’m busy with training, Yujin! You know how pressured I am right now with the company expecting so much from me. They want me to do this and do that and I just don’t have time–”

Yujin knew what he was about to say before he even had the chance to say it out loud; and she had beat him to it, “for me.” She mumbled. “You don’t have time for me." It hurt to say the words and she tried to hold back her tears thought it was threatening to come. 

"Yujin, I don’t mean that–” he looked away.

“No, no.” She held up a hand at him when he tried to console her. “I completely get it. I don’t fit in with your new life anymore–”

“It’s not–”

“You don’t need me anymore.” She hissed as she felt her anger boiling up inside her after being subdued for so long. “You don’t even want to have anything to do with me anymore!”

That’s not–”

“Don’t even try to deny it, Park Jimin!” She screamed at him. “You’ve practically pushed me away the moment you started ignoring my calls or even my slightest efforts of keeping in touch with you.” she seethed. “You’re a selfish jerk, you know that?!" 

Jimin bewilderedly stared at her and glared, ”I’m selfish? If anyone is selfish it's you! Instead of supporting me and trying to understand what I’m going through, here you are trying to pick a fight!“

"You asked for it!”

He cursed under his breath, “You’re so immature! I don’t know why I even came here to see you." 

His confession was like a slap and it shut her up as a tear rolled down her cheek. She wiped it away before Jimin could see, "You’re right, maybe you shouldn’t have come.”

They stared at each other, slightly panting at the hurtful words they had exchange with each other. “It was a mistake.” Jimin said, darkly. 

“It was.” She said. A mistake to fall for you. 

“Fine.” He said as he left her standing on the streets, feling as if the weight of the world had been put onto her shoulder. Yujin watched him go; watched him walk out of her life for good. 

“Fine.”

~~~

Yujin blinked and gasped as she felt pain in her chest. She moved her hand towards her face and was surprised to feel it wet with tears. She couldn’t believe that after all this time it still could hurt so much. 

Still hurts, she thought as she curled herself into a ball, trying to sleep the pain away. 

To be continued.

Man, it's only been a week, but I'm missing Valdaya already. Might also be because I went on a Valdaya binge watch, but still, my Valdaya heart misses them so very much

Same. I went back and watched all their dances😭. Val was so happy that weekend and what made it even better was that they decided to share that moment with us…..and T2 wasn’t there

This morning, I thought back to a year and seven months ago. I thought back to the very beginning of us. I cried and I cried, oh how I cried. Not because it hurt, but because it was beautiful. I took a chance with you and you showed me how to live. Yeah, I want you back. I would give anything to have you back, but I’ve learned that I can’t always get what I want out of you. You’ve called me a “pest” and a “coward”, cruel words that I would have never imagined you say to me. Words that run through my body like a serpent. Cold. Yet I still linger. I still miss you. I miss you right now at this very second, but you need space and time. Why? Because I attacked you with myself. I threw all my emotions and thoughts right at you. You carried them on your back like a slave, you were forced. But once you found the strength to say no, my world began to diminish. You became colder, smarter. You knew what to say and where it hurt. I miss your loud car. The black leather seats that boiled in the summer. We were so in love in the summer, at least I was. But just as summer came to and end, so did our love. The cool breezes of the fall mimic our downfall. They mimic you and I. I want to know what’s on your mind. I ask but you never answer. I call out to you, I scream out at you, but all that I hear is my own damn echo. Desperate. Pathetic. I want to ask you how your family is doing. God I miss your family. How is your dog? I know he’s getting old. Did I get old to you? I feel as if I got boring to you. I want another shot to show you that our love is still there. It’s yearning to be set free from its slumber. Let it be felt. But you won’t give me a second chance. It hurts but I have hope that maybe in the future, we can try at this again. I want one more opportunity and I promise to you I won’t throw it to waste. I’m jealous of her, whoever she may be. Present or future, I’m jealous of her. I know she’ll be beautiful and have a mind of her own. I know your type. I’m not blind, nor stupid. I can see what’s right there in front of me. It’s only natural that you try to fill the void I left in you with someone else. She’s not me, and she will never be. She won’t ever be me or be able to fill in what I left in you. Can she say juice the way I do? Has she seen the office more than you have? Will she make up her own dances when she’s bored? Will she struggle at winking? Will she ever give you what I gave you? Will she ever care as much for you as I do? Will she love you more than I do? No. She will never share the same things we shared. And even with all that being said, I’m still jealous. You’ll notice that when you’re with her, you’ll do things with her that you did with me. You’ll do our things. You’ll miss me like I miss you. You’ll miss my mom’s homemade salsa. But I want you to be happy. I want to give you the world again. I want to be your entire world again. I want to give your butterflies again. I want to hold your hands again, and I want to feel you pop your fingers while we told hands. I want you to wink at me again like you did when I smiled at you. I want to look into your beautiful green eyes and feel at home again. I want to be yours again, and I want you to me mine. I don’t want you to forget about all the memories that we shared. I want to reminisce over the night we met, we were two strangers. I want to tell you that I love you again without having to say “like a friend” afterwards. I think of what may be of us if you hadn’t given up so easily. Happiness. For me, maybe for you if you look back as far as I did, back to a year and seven months ago.
—  Your first love.

MINO - W (Oct) Magazine Interview!

Q: You were the runner up for “Show Me The Money 4”. Were the final results similar to your predictions at the start of the contest, such as your ranking and the winner?

Mino: I did not predict where I would place but honestly I thought I would naturally go to the finals. Since I am confident onstage, I thought that I would definitely go to the finals. I didn’t think it would be that difficult. But after experiencing the first preliminaries, my mind changed. I thought, “Ah! It’s going to be hard to move up.” So I worked much harder. I was in the Top 10 and on the finals stage in a blink of an eye.

Q: I heard that you got insomnia?

Mino: When an individual becomes suddenly busy or suddenly has lots to think about, they lose sleep. I experienced the most burden and pressure in my life and I think I thought/worried the most as long as I’ll live. Usually, I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow but after the broadcast started, I couldn’t fall asleep even if I wanted to.

Q: I thought that even if Song Mino did really well he wouldn’t be able to win. How would the public responded if a winner was announced from YG following Bobby in Season 3?

Mino: Honestly, I would be lying if I said I didn’t think about that. In the end, I didn’t win but I worried about the things I would hear if I did. So instead of being greedy to win from the start, even if I were to get eliminated, I wanted to show my coolest appearance onstage. I only thought about showing myself renewing my stage on my own.

Q: Even if you didn’t win, “Fear” became the most successful song from “Show Me The Money 4”. It was refreshing to see words that told the weakness of your heart among rap lyrics that expressed how strong and how the best they are.

Mino: It contains my honest feelings I felt while filming “Show Me The Money 4”. I was stuck in the wrong thought of having to write impacting and very strong lyrics from the time I prepared for the show. I only thought about “properly dismantling” the interest, anticipation, pressure, and eyes that tried to see me while wearing dark glasses around me. As I continued to write lyrics, that kind of obsession became more powerful and I became tied up within my own system. In that process I wrote lyrics that crossed a line and I deeply regret it. As I received an onslaught of criticism, I wanted to honestly write about the emotions I felt during that time. I was going to be on a stage where I could truly show myself since I was in the semi-finals. So I didn’t want to say things like, “I’m strong. I’m the best. You guys are all r*tards”. Especially because there weren’t many stages where I could share my genuine story, I sincerely told my story without tensing up.

Q: As you mentioned about “crossing a line”, there was controversy about your incorrect lyrics.

Mino: That line of lyrics was one of the lyrics I wrote during the time I was preparing for the broadcast before the program started. I think I wrote more than 100 lines of lyrics during the three weeks before the first preliminaries. Active rappers had so many bullets that they would’ve already prepared but I had been writing mainstream music until then so I was deeply restless. I thought that I had to write two to three times more than the contestants that I would compete with so I downloaded hundreds of instrumentals at the recording studio, and whatever genre it was, whatever theme it was, I kept writing. Since this kind of lifestyle became repeated, I think I hypnotised myself as I kept telling myself, “You need to be stronger. It needs to be more impacting. So you can beat the extraordinary contestants who are going to compete with you”. In that time when my judgment was weak, even when I was rapping that line, I wasn’t able to realise my error. It was problematic to not realise it on my own but I didn’t have the composure to think about it deeply. After the broadcast and after the public’s reaction, it hit me. As I was scolded and criticised by people, I was able to step out of the obsession I created.

Q: I’m sure you felt a variety of emotions in the process of getting criticized and apologizing.

Mino: I always wanted to write really good lyrics. I am working hard even now and I even believed that one of my strengths was lyrics. After this happened, I became more cautious in writing lyrics. My position is a mainstream singer and I have many young fans and female fans and I came to feel very deeply in my bones that it is something I need to face with utmost prudence. I think I need to accept this as an opportunity to become more mature as a mainstream singer and rapper.

Q: For “Fear”, Taeyang’s vocal featuring was very impactful as well as your rap.

Mino: Before the lyrics were finished, I was deep in thought about who I should ask to feature in it. I even got the guide of the song by Junhwae of iKON and Koonta-hyung [of Rude Paper]. After listening to the guides, I came to the conclusion that a clean vocal color would fit best, and the only voice I could think of was Taeyang-hyung. I asked him just in case he would comply and after listening to the song he gladly accepted. Although he was busy with filming “Infinity Challenge at the time, I am very grateful that he made time to participate. I was unbelievably satisfied while listening to the finished product.

Q: In a way Taeyang’s featuring was a double edged sword. Along with the success of the song, it also grabbed at your ankles. There were responses such as “Isn’t Taeyang featuring cheating” and “You’re the one who said you’ll do it without the YG tag”.

Mino:  That’s right. I think it was only natural for people to respond in such manner. I did rap, “without the YG tag on my back” but that doesn’t change the fact that I am under YG. I wish for people to accept that as my expression of vigour. I was promising to show Song Mino, not as a singer under the agency YG and not as a WINNER member. There were other singers who could’ve featured but as I was thinking about the creating the best song possible, the voice that kept ringing in my head was Taeyang-hyung. It is only natural that people thought I would be in a position of advantage with Taeyang of BIGBANG featuring but I thought that if the song itself is good, people would acknowledge it. It was hard for me to give up the whole picture I desired as a person creating the song. Also Blacknut was not a weak opponent so I did not have a choice but to choose my best cards. I was desperate to win the battle, to make the best song possible, and to fulfil my own satisfaction. So that was my decision.

Q: It was memorable to see your good natured laughter in response to Blacknut’s attacking rap, “Song Mino will win anyways”. How did you feel when you first heard that and how did you tolerate it?

Mino: When Blacknut-hyung said that for the first time during the second preliminaries, I thought, “Huh? That’s funny” as I heard it at the scene. Because I was fully prepared for people to target me and try to drag me down. I thought that I just had to do what I do but as the show went on, many people kept saying it repeatedly so towards the latter half of the show, I was slightly angry. Getting mentioned like a popular catchphrase and having it like a personal label, made everything I did with my efforts turn into nothing with that one phrase. Of course everyone is on good terms now. There is no one I am on bad terms with after being on “Show Me The Money 4”. Even if there were misunderstandings prior to the show, everything is settled well now.

Q: You shared that time with notable musicians of the hiphop scene. Is there anything you felt and learned?

Mino: As I met hyungs who I wasn’t able to meet in a long time and talked with musicians I didn’t know and competed with them, the spectrum within me widened. They were of big help, musically and humanely.

Q: You must have been under great stress during competitions such as “WIN” and “Show Me The Money 4” as you had to prove yourself and try to win. What made it possible to show good results despite it all?

Mino: Teddy-hyung once told me, “In the end, your days are the same”. Even if I become trapped in a difficult time and suffer from it and become distressed from it, my days are the same. Nothing changes. I think that’s really true. From that time on, I tried my best to empty my thoughts as much as possible. It’s difficult to express in words but nothing good comes in staying within a difficult situation.

Q: Another issue is the meeting between Song Mino and Zico. Both of you dreamt of debuting in the same group one time. What was it like to work with Zico as your friend, colleague, and producer?

Mino: I must admit, I was so happy. Even after we were separated into different groups, we contacted each other at least once a week. We know each other too well and we share musical influences with each other greatly. I always wanted to do things with him since we share such similar tastes in fashion, music, and dances(choreography), and through this opportunity I did everything I wanted to. Both of our wishes were granted. Naturally, there are more things I want to do with him but I am happy to do something we love to do onstage together.

Q: Will we be able to see you do something together again?

Mino: If my company allows it, I will definitely want to do anything. I’m sure my fans would also like that.

Q: Is there a rapper or musician other than Zico you want to work with?

Mino: Oh Hyuk of Hyukoh Band. I’ve been close friends with him since before. I had him come over during my “I’m Him” music video filming and he had to wait all day but only appeared for 0.3 seconds. But he’s so popular now… If I do something with him now, it would be too typical, right? (T/N: Typical as in bandwagoning cause Hyukoh Band is popular these days)

Q: Will we be able to see Mino the rapper in the future?

Mino: I am always ready to grab hold of any opportunity passing by. I will show a cooler side, a side that crushes everything.

Ship: Thorin x Reader
Words: 496


Gosh, it is hot outside, you thought for the fifth time today. You sighed and ran a hand through your hair, turning on the vintage radio on the small table next to your couch and making your way to the kitchen. You were immediately annoyed by the pop song that was playing. You’d heard that song at least ten times this week! But you pushed your annoyance away as well as you could and started filling the sink with hot water after rolling up your sleeves. Since your amazingly handy boyfriend had broken the dishwasher, you had to do the dishes, like this now. 


Speaking of the devil, you felt two strong arms wrap around your waist and pull you against a broad chest. You sighed contently and turned off the tap, turning around and wrapping your arms around his neck, your thumbs tracing small circles on his skin. Thorin smiled down at you, a twinkle in his warm blue eyes. The irritating pop song stopped and made place for a new one, its intro sounding much more appealing to you. 


Thorin grinned mischievously and took a step back, holding out his hand. “May I have this dance, my lady?” You suppressed a giggle and put your hand in his, letting him pull you against his body. The two of you danced slowly around your kitchen, the same way you had on your aunt’s wedding a few years before, when you had taken him as a date. You had shared your first kiss there as well.

Thorin pulled you out of your thoughts by resting his chin on top of your head and you closed your eyes, happy to be so close to him. “Remember my aunt’s wedding?” You broke the silence, your voice soft. He merely hummed in acknowledgement and pulled you even closer. You inhaled his scent and it made you feel even more secure, knowing you were home with the best man in the entire world.

“We should play that song at our wedding,“ he mumbled into your hair when the song was over. You chuckled and pulled back a little so you could look up at him. “Our wedding?” He smiled and let go of you so he could take a step back. You gasped in surprise when he got onto one knee and pulled a little box from his back pocket. “Only if you will have me, (Y/N).” He opened the box, showing the most beautiful ring you’d ever seen. Maybe your opinion was biased, since you loved Thorin so dearly.
You sniffled and nodded, holding out your hand. He beamed and took your shaking hand in his, sliding the ring on your finger with his own, nimble ones. “I love you, my heart,” he said once he got up. All you could do at that moment was jump into his arms and kiss him.

And if you were both crying while smiling like idiots, no one could blame you, right?

It was memorable to see your good natured laughter in response to Blacknut’s attacking rap, “Song Mino will win anyways”. How did you feel when you first heard that and how did you tolerate it?

When Blacknut-hyung said that for the first time during the second preliminaries, I thought, “Huh? That’s funny” as I heard it at the scene.

You must have been under great stress during competitions such as “WIN” and “Show Me The Money 4” as you had to prove yourself and try to win. What made it possible to show good results despite it all?

Teddy-hyung once told me, “In the end, your days are the same”. Even if I become trapped in a difficult time and suffer from it and become distressed from it, my days are the same. Nothing changes. I think that’s really true. From that time on, I tried my best to empty my thoughts as much as possible. It’s difficult to express in words but nothing good comes in staying within a difficult situation.

I must admit, I was so happy. Even after we were separated into different groups, we contacted each other at least once a week. We know each other too well and we share musical influences with each other greatly. I always wanted to do things with him since we share such similar tastes in fashion, music, and dances(choreography), and through this opportunity I did everything I wanted to. Both of our wishes were granted. Naturally, there are more things I want to do with him but I am happy to do something we love to do onstage together.

Will we be able to see you do something together again?

If my company allows it, I will definitely want to do anything. I’m sure my fans would also like that.

Is there a rapper or musician other than Zico you want to work with?

Oh Hyuk of Hyukoh Band. I’ve been close friends with him since before. I had him come over during my “I’m Him” music video filming and he had to wait all day but only appeared for 0.3 seconds. But he’s so popular now… If I do something with him now, it would be too typical, right? (T/N: Typical as in bandwagoning)

Will we be able to see Mino the rapper in the future?

I am always ready to grab hold of any opportunity passing by. I will show a cooler side, a side that crushes everything.

Taekai is like a real fairytale to me. They knew each other, before the world knew them. They had the same fire for dancing and music, so they helped each other to turn that passion into a career. Even though their fate was a bit bitter and they did not debut under the same group… They still remained close, supporting each others dreams. Taemin debuted first and Jongin was left behind, but he was only focusing on learning from Taemin and not being jealous. And look at them today. How happy do they look whenever they’re interacting. It must be a wonderful feeling to see your dreams becoming true together like that. They even got to share the same stage during Taemin’s solo era, despite of being in different groups. They have inspired and supported each other and still continue to do so. No matter what their relationship truly stands for, it shines through. Taekai is… happiness. Taekai is a soul connection at its best. It’s not about possession, but helping each other to become the greatest version of yourself. Taekai is about fighting for your dreams and seeing it become everyday life with someone. If that’s not bit of a fairytale, I don’t know what is.

You're saying this mid-day lunch break bday party is on the same level as Val receiving an award at the Dance Awards and if Jenna was able to rearrange her schedule for THAT she certainly could have rearranged it for a bday party for someone she isn't even that close to 🤦‍♀️ idk why it even has to be about Jenna at all. Just be happy that Val saw Z on her bday.

I see you missed the point as well but let me help you out: If people are so close as y'all say they are,arrangements would’ve been made to share the day(lunch break) with people. Ole girl ain’t even tweet anything out. You wouldn’t even known I said something in response to my anon if you didn’t stalk my blog but I know you love me and your day would be incomplete without it.
