Can Square do this please, A Birthday DLC for Noctis, going back in time to just before Noct’s 20th birthday:

  • Set in Insomnia
  • New outfits for the bros
  • You get to explore the Citadel
    • See Noct’s room, Ignis’ office, Regis’ office, etc
  • Walk around downtown Insomnia
  • Fishing/sparring contest against Gladio/Nyx/Cor/Clarus
  • Photography contest & Arcade hopping with Prompto
  • Mini missions:
    • Find Ignis in the Citadel and inadvertently help him collect ingredients to make a cake (which eventually is your birthday cake, new recipeh yo);
    • Meet up with Nyx to pick up your “Star of Lucis” car from Audi - Insomnia;
    • End the DLC with a party in Noct’s apartment, everyone is there: Iris, Nyx, Libertis, Crowe, Umbra, Ignis, Gladio, Cor, Clarus, Prompto, and Regis comes to gift Noct with the Engine Blade
    • At the end they all sing “Happy Birthday” to a really embarrassed Noct

So I’m making this post to talk about the good things that BigHit does in this time of lines and screen time feud. BigHit entertainment is one of the best and least restrictive companies I have come to know. Since BTS are their only artists, the amount of freedom and close knit management they get is amazing.

There is no dungeon that the boys can disappear into, and there is constantly new content for the fans. Sure there are some things that happen that we nor the boys like, but then they are dealt with. Yoongi complained about his scalp, and BigHit relented, allowing him to stay dark for the past couple of comebacks.

They also allow the boys to use expensive equipment write and produce their own music to release as non monetized mixtapes or song covers. They even fully funded the MVs given to both Yoongi and Nams for their mixtapes, and that is something they didn’t have to do.

The boys are given the best produced music videos, and are allowed to create cinematic masterpieces with a deepened meaning. They not censored in the types of lyrics that they write, despite how controversial in Korean culture.

Now this may seem trivial to you. All these small things are nothing compared to the injustice that the members face. How dare they give Jungkook all the lines and leave everyone else out in the cold! 2Seok was basically missing this entire comeback!

Ok I hear you, but at the same time, consider the fact that this is the first (and probably the last) time Hoseok gets few *cough cough none cough cough* individual lines in a song. Spring Day was a more vocal based song, so they decided that he should use his vocal talent to back Jungkook rather than add another rap verse. It makes sense to me, and it gives him the opportunity to show his vocal talent on stage if he and Jungkook harmonize live as well.

And then there is Jin. It seems that he always gets the short end of the stick. The amount of individual screen time he got was unfair yes, completely. He is officially a (debatably the) visual of the group, and if anything that should be the place he pops up the most. But at the same time, Not Today was more a dance video, and he and Nams are well, not the best dancers, so they wouldn’t put them in the middle on all the dance shots.

Also look at the I Need U and Run comebacks, the entire story in the music videos clearly revolved around him and his character, something that the fans were quick to point out and appreciate. For those comebacks, he was in the center.

This is still not a justification, but simply a reason for why they might have chosen to edit the video like they did.

Next moving on to his line distribution. He notoriously along with V get the short end of the stick when it comes to lines. And I think it is simply because of the way the industry works.

You know how sometimes Jimin and Jungkook switch lines because Jimin is better at the high notes in the studio, but Jungkook hits them better live? The same thing goes for most line distributions. What voice works the best for the feeling they want to produce? Who can hold the notes the best on stage? Like I said before, Jin is not the best dancer, and their dances are HARD, so most of his time probably goes towards practicing the choreography rather than nailing his vocal stability on stage.

He objectively doesn’t have the best or most stable voice in the group, as often times on live stages he is out of breath by the time his lines do come up, and that is completely understandable. It’s the reason why so many (even the more experienced) artists lip sync to certain performances.

Dancing while singing is hard, and maybe it’s just not for Jin. Maybe, just maybe, he decided himself that his voice was better suited for slower songs with less choreo so that he can really focus on nailing his vocal performance. I mean in the solo he got to produce himself he chose a more soft ballad song rather than a more hard hitting one like Jimin’s because that just suits his voice better, and he knows it.

That’s why he got a lot more lines in “Butterfly” a slower ballad with less complex dancing and softer vocals, right where Jin thrives, but not really the typical image BTS produces musically.

Once again this isn’t a justification, and more a reason why he might get fewer lines. It is true that the line distributions are unfair and I agree with that, but it’s also a question of the industry standards, and the fact that sometimes it might be the best solution to a shitty problem.

I know I’m probably going to get some flack for this one, but it’s just something that needed to be said. Us fans really need to step back and appreciate not only the boys, but the company that helped make them.

I'm so tired why won't they speak up, or shut everyone else up. Like if you aren't going to talk about it but show it to other musicians who give interviews tell them, hey you know just don't mention this anytime soon? I haven't said anything, but he obviously doesn't do that let's them talk about it and he remains quiet.

I do think it’s interesting that his team is allegedly allowing multiple people to listen to the music but we have yet to have any of it leak. When are they going to let Julian listen and hit us with 6 second audio clips?

Sans got so scared he opened his mouth

Bonus:

Guys I am highkey stressed about tomorrow’s episode. What if Fitz is an LMD and he pulls a Rory from The Pandorica Opens on Doctor Who? Not saying he’d kill Jemma, but what if he’s programmed to hurt her, but he fights that order with every ounce of his being? Because it’s Jemma?

.

Random question for Americans or people in the know - absolutely not fic related, no way, I’ve got work to do and I’m not writing anything, that would be irresponsible of me, hhahahaha, nope, just honest to God curiosity - if you were in a coma for months and you had no family, how would that work? Like, would you have to leave very clear instructions not to be unplugged? Or would you be ‘killed’ anyway after a certain time if no brain activity showed up on monitors? And what about your stuff? Say you were upper upper middle class, so wealthy enough to cover medical expenses for a certain number of months, but not more - would a lawyer be appointed to sell your house so they can keep your body on life-support? Or would the hospital just keep you alive for free, because Hippocratic oath? And would any of that change if you were a famous person?

(I don’t need Harvard Law precision about this, I’d only like the story to be believable for Americans I’m just trying to finish a crossword / win a bet / understand this dream I had. Ugh. Okay, bye.)

I decided to turn that “making bets until they make out with each other” fic into a multichapter fic and I’m getting impatient because the first chapter’s not done yet but I want to show you guuuuyyysss
