But let me ask you this question, how would the losers club comfort each other when they're crying? (Are you doing HEADCANONS? Idk I just wanted to ask and share some feels)
Bill: When someone’s crying, Bill instantly goes into big brother mode. The Losers are quite literally family to him, especially after his parents start to neglect him. They’re the people closest to him and he’s fully aware that they look up to him, so he totally feels a sense of responsibility to be there for everyone. In fact, he often pushes aside his own feelings for the sake of the group. He’ll sit with them and just try and listen and give good advice, pulling them into a huge hug after and asking if they wanna go get food or ice cream or something.
Beverly: If any of the boys are crying, she’s either 1. on the verge of tears herself because she cares about them so much or 2. she’s putting on her bad ass face and talking some sense into them. If it’s the former, she’ll just allow her friends to cry on her shoulders. She definitely has no qualms for showing affection to any of them, holding their hands and kissing their foreheads while they cry. If it’s the latter, though, she’ll have to take deep breaths in order to calm herself down so she doesn’t yell to talk sense into them. A lot of times she feels like they’re crying for reasons she thinks they don’t deserve to be this upset over, so she has to give them pep talks and reminds them to not give a fuck.
Ben: If Ben sees any of the Losers crying, he always feels so guilty and horrible for them. He’s the friend that says “I’m so sorry” or “you don’t deserve this” when his friends tell him about their problems. He gives such good hugs and truly wants his friends to be happy. He can listen to them rant for hours, just nodding his head and trying his best to smile and tell them it’ll be okay. He’ll always remind them that they’re amazing people and tell them all of the qualities he loves about each of them.
Stan: If any of them come to Stan while they’re crying, it’s when they need really practical advice. Stan, of course, feels bad. However, he’s not the best at comforting. What he’s golden at is logically hearing out the problems, taking both sides of everything and coming up with actually good solutions on how to improve it? If any of them are in fights, he’s the one to convince them of the other side and get them to apologize. Even though he has trouble being super sympathetic and soft like Bev or Ben, he cares so much about his friends and is always there to listen. He always tries to smile and tell them that everything will work out in the end.
Eddie: Eddie is the mom of the group. He takes care of everyone if they’re feeling sad, always prepared with hot tea and blankets and ice cream (with the spoons ran under hot water so they can scoop more easily). He’s the best person to go to when they just want to cry it out and be taken care of. He’s always open for watching movies or playing board games, and has no problem with any of them resting their heads on his lap. He’s not as bad as Richie in this sense, but he’ll always tell his friends to tell whoever hurt them to fuck off and that they’re not worth being upset over.
Richie: Definitely not the best person to go to for solid advice, but he’s an amazing listener and will definitely get as angry/upset as his friends about whatever situation they’re in. If they tell them about a fight they were in or something, he’s the first to say he’s gonna find them and beat them up. After he lets his friends get it all out, he does anything in his power to make them laugh. Making stupid jokes, ticking them, doing his voices. He just wants to see them smile. He’s also another good person to go to if they just wanna chill after a good cry, because he has the best music taste and it’s easy to sit with him and listen to a record and forget about problems.
Mike: Mike is the friend to go to if any of them want to go out and have fun after they’ve been upset. Mike is always up for going swimming, hiking, out to eat, you name it. He is so fun to hang out with that when they’re with him, Mike makes sure they’re busy and having a great time and not thinking about whatever is upsetting them. He also always has his farm open to whoever needs it, and for the Losers it becomes a sort of sanctuary to go pet the animals and feel relaxed with Mike.
aesthetic: Mike pushing Will on the swing, the two happily holding hands until they were bullied for it, even so they would do it in secret, sharing and trying each other's lunches, poking each other for the sake of wanting attention and contact, talking all night on the wallow talkies, dancing with each other at the snowball, their parents finding both of them sleeping in the same bed, usually it's mike sneaking out, saying that they're friends but feeling weird at that label
like mike totally sneaks out and bikes to Will’s when Will reaches him on the supercom, saying he had a really bad nightmare and needed someone to talk to. But Mike is like “no way. You’re not gonna be alone there. I know you’re scared, i’m coming over. Over and out.”
Before Will can protest, Mike is gone. He climbs in Will’s window about ten minutes later and Will just falls apart. He cries on Mike’s shoulder, and it isnt just one thing that makes him crack. It’s the nightmare, it’s the fact that he cant be himself with Mike, and it’s the trauma of the Upside Down.
Mike decides he can’t leave Will like this. So he grabs Will’s sleeping bag and sleeps super close to the bed. They even fall asleep holding hands, with Will’s dangling over the side of the bed and Mike’s reaching up to hold it in his own.
Please talk to me about gtop. I'm new to the fandom and I hardcore ship that two. Do you ship it too? Are there like 'proofs' that they're real? Please go crazy with me
omg, my favourite kind of ask. so i answered something for another anon a while back xxx
the most ~concrete~ you’re gonna get in the way of proof is the cyworld messages back in the day (they used to call each other turtle and shell for gods sake and the amount of just BOYFRIEND pictures found on top’s old acc is mad lmao)
but then they also share pyjamas (honestly what straight men do this), jiyong had a habit over the past year of liking/posting gtop fan art and manips like this. then there’s stuff like jiyong maybe - very possibly - keeping a gift bag that seunghyun gave him for YEARS
they met in middle school 😢…danny from 1tym recently took part on a podcast where he talked about them being friends before they joined YG like…people know about them being buddies which i find very cute?
and for some reason this is my favourite gtop moment
Okay so consider: Kai, completely shitfaced, admitting that he wants to go out with one of the other three ninja but he doesn't know who because they're all so amazing, Cole is strong and gives the best hugs and Zane cooks like an angel and is so wonderfully weird and Jay makes the best puns and he likes all of them and the others, equally drunk, all start complimenting each other, and then Lloyd, completely sober, is just like "oh for fuck's sake just all go out with each other" ~ls xx
my favorite new trope is “lloyd, the sober chaperone” and dammit… perfect
I feel like dnp are being so much more affectionate to each other recently and are dropping lots of hints that they're together. After being together for 7 years and seeing how much of a power couple they are I don't believe they will ever breakup and I think they believe that too. So with that in mind do you think they're keeping their relationship hidden for the sake of their careers rather than privacy reasons?? Interested of hearing your thoughts! Love your blog btw xxx
i think both, and maybe even more. i believe remaining ambiguous is advantageous for them professionally in many ways. coming out always bears the risk of their content or their role as legitimate entertainers being overshadowed by their audience’s investment in their relationship. you could argue that that’s already the case (that there’s a significant portion of their audience that follows them due to an interest in their potential relationship more than their videos) but with the ambiguity that they currently have, they don’t really have people demanding for them to make content that is centered on their relationship alone. and also i’d argue that actually wayyyy more people follow dnp for their content than for their private matters just judging on view counts on certain videos in comparison to others, and the sheer number of people in their comments that are very certain that they are just friends and genuinely shocked/appalled that anyone could view them as more. i also think that coming out might put weight on them to take on a more proactive role as spokespeople for the lgbtq community that they might not want, and that again might overshadow their creative content. it might hinder their chances of being hired as a duo by corporations that wouldn’t want to deal w the attention and news of hiring a homosexual couple to host their events. which is obviously upsetting and a bit gross, but also, just the reality of how the world works right now. in short, i genuinely believe that if they were out it would undermine many people’s perception of the content they make and cause many people to take them a lot less seriously, especially as a duo.
personally, i also feel it continues to be good for them to remain ambiguous because it dissuades questioning and attention placed on their private affairs. we all know all of the stories of youtube couples whose relationships crumbled under the weight of public scrutiny and the consequences of oversharing. while dnp have dealt w this private-public balance for seven years and therefore would probably be a lot better equipped to handle that pressure than most of these other couples, i do think that their relationship remains the most important thing in their lives and so,, it’s probably just not worth the risk that all of that extra attention might pose. i just can envision a universe in which they were out and instead of comments being like “are they dating” “no” “probably not” “ugh i hate shippers” (which, lbr, are annoying in their own right), we’d have comment sections full of
“OMG KISS ON CAMERAAAA!!!”
“guys they’re not comfortable w pda leave them alone”
“OMG THEY NEVER KISS THEYRE PROBABLY NOT EVEN IN LOVE”
“ugh i hate these pervy people who just want dnp to do gay stuff for them instead of focusing on the content”
“okay phil, so when are you proposing??? ??”
“PHIL! ! ! YOURE SO OLD OM G HOLY SHIT UR OVER 30 ISNT THAT WHEN EVERYONE GETS MARRIED? U HAVE TO PROPOSE!!”
“guys, do you think bc they arent married, theyre not actually in love??”
“omg dan rolled his eyes in this video while phil was talking do u think they’re fighting?!?! i always thought phil could do better anyway ugh”
“why haven’t they made the boyfriend tag, they might be fighting omg”
“MAKE THE BOYFRIEND TAG”
“MAKE THE CHAPSTICK CHALLENGE”
“MAKE A BEDROOM TOUR”
wow a 30-second thought exercise and i already want to die from a cringe attack. you get my point.
edit: want to add a couple more potential comments bc i didn’t even go down the route of future-y things and the gross heteronormative assumptions about their relationship that might be directed at them, but how about “omg dnp when r u guys getting a baby” “omg dan is SOOOO obviously the GIRL in the relationship ha ha ha” vom.
I'd like to imagine that when Kageyama and Hinata start dating, when they visit each other's houses, they go into their rooms and sit all tangled up, fingers lightly intertwined, with each other and talk while having their foreheads touch, occasionally nuzzling each other. Even when they're bickering it would be very calm and just for the sake of it and still try to remain as close to each other as possible. =)
can i jump on the theories train too? pleeaassseeee? now pop bitch's blind item about zayn quitting because of liam makes more sense too. they can say zayn tried to stay away from liam for sophia and perrie's sakes. but in the end they got busted anyway and realised their feelings for each other were deeper than they were for perrie and sophia. now they're oddly happy the scandal happened because they're free to give it a go with each other. official narrative meets fake narrative for resolution
just as 1DHQ loses a major part of their power structure in Modest.
It seems like a plausible way to bring everything together and cover
their tracks while they still have the power to do so.
Hmmm…good point. I assumed Pop Bitch meant maybe there was something Zayn refused to do because of Liam, like a marriage stunt. But yeah, in hindsight, maybe they were hinting at a future narrative. Like you said, a future narrative blending reality and 1DHQ’s lies to tie everything together before they’re out. Y’all are coming up with a lot of interesting angles. These could all potentially work. Time will tell.
Imagine the Karasuno members always having tickle fights with each other except Tsukishima, because they're scared he'll kill them or something. But Tsukishima is actually really ticklish and secretly feels left out. So when he is alone with Yamaguchi and feeling down, he starts teasing and tickling Yamaguchi so he will tickle him back. Yamaguchi, of course, has figured out what he's doing but doesn't say anything for the sake of Tsukishima's pride.
