this could become a new meme

“My path always led me back to you, again and again. I grew tired of you after a while, of course. Looked for new adventures. But I guess your path led you back here, again and again. One more loop, looking for something you could never find. Chasing your ghosts. You were lost in your memories even then. I guess I should’ve known that’s what I would become for you: just another memory.”

It’s cool to hate Taylor Swift. She’s a social media pariah, the punchline of every meme, a living snake emoji. Her new single Look What You Made Me Do was jeered into the charts , making it to number one and breaking records on its way. Her new album is to be a treatise on reputation, and boy could Swift deliver a TED talk on that subject. She’s become universally despised to the point where it’s taboo even to admit to feeling sorry for her. One is allowed to concede that 1989 had a few bangers but that’s the limit.

Swift became synonymous with the snake emoji thanks to one fateful subtweet by Kim K. Her spat with the Kardashian-Wests is what has earned her most of her bad reputation – she’s a liar who got what she deserved, right? Case closed. But it’s naive to think good old-fashioned karma is all that’s at play in the Swift saga.

Swift is not the first snake woman. Since the Old Testament, society has sought to discredit and vilify women by associating them with the scaly and the slithering. It’s the oldest trope in the book – from Eve to Medusa, the snake has always been a faithful misogynist device, used to destroy female reputation.

Celebrity culture is at best a lifelike simulation, at worst an outright fabrication. The general public can only guess at what really went on between Swift and West, and the entire incident may well have been a mutually beneficial publicity stunt. Yet it was seized upon with an unconcealed glee by the online horde that now collates and quantifies every female celebrity’s actions for moral evaluation – realistically, it was just the excuse they were looking for. Swift’s downfall was long awaited. She has been dismissed as a maneater who exploits her partners for Youtube hits and, in that famous diatribe, declared a calculating professional victim. We’re supposed to believe the powerful playboys she courts are blameless lambs.

Long before the West debacle, she was already branded a snake when she sent attorney’s letters to fans selling Swift merchandise and to her former guitar teacher for attempting to exploit her past. In a society that supposedly abhors the gender wage gap, one could be forgiven for thinking Swift’s unashamed defence of her intellectual property and rightful earnings to be admirable. Instead she was met with a vicious campaign of character assassination – evidence of her years of endless, painstaking kindness toward fans was buried in a sea of hate memes. People were determined to see her as false and traitorous.

The eagerness to scrutinise and condemn surfaced again when Swift made fumbled attempts at good feminist engagement. When trying to call out Nicki Minaj in a now infamous Twitter quarrel, she demonstrated ignorance of the intersection of race and feminism. Quickly realising her mistake, Swift listened, learned and apologised, which one might think was an exemplary response – but too late. The witch hunt was already under way.

In 2017, it is unacceptable for famous women to learn on the job – they must emerge from the womb with a complete working knowledge of intersectional feminism and if they don’t they apparently deserve a sustained campaign of online abuse. It’s hardly surprising that a year later, Swift backtracked on endorsing misogynist lyrics by West – she was likely terrified of making another misstep.

Swift made headlines again recently by suing her sexual abuser for a symbolic $1. She won with style, unapologetically asserting the wrongness of the abuse that was perpetrated on her but on the day of her victory, there was tumbleweed on the Taylor Swift hashtag. The online horde that has judged Swift for so long misses nothing, so the selective deafness on certain actions speaks volumes. Only the damning evidence is accepted as canon.

Regardless of what Swift does, she is accused of being a treacherous temptress. She’s always a snake. Her actions are incorporated into the narrative as an afterthought, perfunctory pieces of evidence to support an already foregone conclusion. Like all witch hunts, it’s trial by drowning. If you sink, you die, if you float – we kill you for being a witch, stupid. Hating her is the end in itself, and her response means nothing. She’s tried proudly owning her reputation, she’s tried parodying herself (see Blank Space and her LWYMMD video) but nothing works. Her reputation is set in stone regardless of her actions – but this is nothing new, for her or any famous woman.

Only 18 months ago, a different woman was synonymous with the snake – Hillary Clinton. Like Swift, she is not unproblematic – but next to Donald Trump should have been an easy choice as president. The public once again latched onto spurious nothings (in this case phantom emails) to magnify cracks in a woman’s character that would have been passed over in a man. No material evidence was even required for Clinton’s downfall – “woman as serpent” is so ingrained in society that we defaulted to it with only the most subtle encouragement. Her reputation was decided before facts. Once again, the snake reared its head and we all obediently hissed in unison.

The snake eating its own tail in Swift’s lyric video is a genius symbol for the hatred without any logical end or beginning; misogyny is always a self-fulfilling aim. It’s an infinitely repeating cycle – it wasn’t so many decades ago that Monica Lewinsky was the snake and Hillary Clinton was the contrasting archetype of purity. Before Swift, it was Lady Gaga or Lana Del Rey being slammed as fake and phony. Now they’ve miraculously fallen back into favour, but for how long? Women are swapped in and out of roles in the machinery of patriarchal society and its race to destroy them.

Swift’s new song is superficially crafted as a Kanye diss song, but the “tilted stage” Swift refers to is not West’s, it is ours. We, her audience of billions, are the ones who always leave her slipping off the edge. Swift’s imagery is too spine-tinglingly salient to be accidental – “you said the gun was mine” expertly captures the way the misogynist society conjures up incriminations to vilify, demonise and discredit women.

Swift knows she can’t win, so she is content to play up to whatever role will bring her temporarily back into favour – “I’ll be the actress, starring in your bad dreams”. Swift knows her reputation is out of her own hands. Yes, Swift’s new single is a diss track, but she’s dissing us. And we probably deserve it.

anonymous asked:

I feel like your documentation of memes is complicated. It seems as though this blog elevates certain memes that have not broke through into new geographical locations yet and makes them prematurely stale so to speak. Kills them before they have had time to mature and become a hit. Could this be that they have not reached me and therefore I dislike them off the bat? Could it be that they weren't very popular in the first place? You should get some UN funding to study the effects of yur existance

There are more memes in heaven and Earth, Anonymous, than are dreamt of in your dashboard.

Ellana Lavellan | Headcanon Meme - ♦ quirks/hobbies headcanon requested by @kellinahasaship 

Every now and then there’s the quirk of having a cultural clash with human customs. 

The hobby Ellana loves the most has become Gardening. Until now all she could do was work with dry herbs fit for travelling for her herbalism, so having a live garden permanently in one place she can actually see grow over time is something new entirely. It’s been a learning experience, but she loves the patience and tranquility required. It’s a welcome break from the hectic nature of her duties. 

But she’ll still never understand why people like to give each other cut flowers that will die so soon, she’ll only gift live plants in pots and prefer the same in return. 

hey there!! it’s me again and this time i got inspired by the greatest internet cult leader, the guy who’s known for being himself a meme, Daniel Howell.
Do you eat, drink and breathe memes? Well my friend, you have come to the right place! The meme culture has become wide spread around the world. Dan even claims that it has become the definition of the purpose of our existence at this point in human history. So in order to glorify this culture, i’m holding The Meme Machine Meetup.

how can you participate?

Participating is as always pretty simple. All you have to do is send your favourite meme along with a picture of yourself making a funny face. We wanna make this as fun as possible. You can also try to create your own meme as this could be a great opportunity to come up with something new.

use the tags #meme machine meetup and #meme machine phandom meetup in order to be a part of this meetup.

Who can participate?

Anyone can participate as the aim of this meetup is to dignify memeing and have as much fun as possible.

When is the meetup being held?

The meetup is being held on Monday, the 28th of August at 17:00 pm GMT.

please don’t hesitate to send me questions if there’s something that isn’t clear to you.

PLEASE REBLOG THIS TO SPREAD THE WORLD

-

✌HAPPY MEMEING✌

Writing on the walls of Run Japanese Ver.

Phone Booth

“Dedicated to all the boys who have lived in this painful world. Shit”

“Res, non verba”

Latin for “deeds rather than words”, or “actions to be used instead of words”. Also appears in bathroom that Taehyung is in.

“Pain past is pleasure”

I can’t find much on the origin of this, however it may derive from the Chinese proverb “苦尽甘来”, which literally translates to “suffering ends, good comes” (may be slightly off because my Chinese is not the best, but it’s along the same lines)

“Dum spiro spero”

Latin for “While I breathe, I hope”. Also appears in the main room.

“Papillon”

French for “butterfly”. Papillon was the name of one of the concept shoots for 화양연화 pt. 2.

“Je ne regrette rien”

French for “I regret nothing”. Je ne regrette rien was the name of another concept shoot.
Non, Je ne regrette rien was also the title of a song by Édith Piaf near the end of her life, as pointed out by this lovely anon. The lyrics are about forgetting the past and starting over.

“Carpe diem”

Latin saying, often translated to “Seize the day”

“Only me and my…”

I can’t see this one too clearly, but it looks like “Only me and my style”

“Memento mori”

Latin for “remember that you will die”.
It is also the name of a short story by Jonathan Nolan, which is about a man who uses tattoos and notes to keep track of his life as he has anterograde amnesia. The story cuts between two timeframes- while the man is in a mental institution, and when he is on the run after he escapes. This reminds me of the part in Run where Hoseok wakes up in the hospital after Tae and Namjoon have been arrested. It then cuts to the party scene. The contrast between scenes is similar to the contrasting timeframes in Memento Mori.

“Chill”

“La vita dolce”

Italian for “the sweet life”, or “the good life”

“Draw me like one of your french girls”

The iconic line from the Titanic which has become a meme of sorts. This is a seemingly random inclusion from Bighit.

“This train ruined my life”

This line was originally hidden in the music video by Namjoon, but thanks to the new photos that came out, I finally figured out what it said. The trains in the I Need U and Run music videos are probably referenced here. In Run, when Namjoon opens the door to the train carriage, it cuts straight to him entering the party scene. “Train” could be a metaphor for his delinquency, as we later see him vandalising and getting arrested. 




Taehyung’s room

“…while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to die live humbly for one”

This is a quote from J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye.
The full quote reads: “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.”
It should be noted that the original quote has been modified, replacing the word “live” with “die”, however “die” is then crossed out and replaced again with “live”. The first half of this quote appears in the main room.

“Hoi doei”

Dutch for “hi bye” (informal)

“Youth is never coming back”

Also appears in the room Jimin is in.

“Don’t fear”

“Won’t trust, can’t trust, don’t trust”

“Save me from myself”

Name of Brian Welch (also know as Head), guitarist of Korn’s autobiography. Also a Christina Aguilera song.

“I paid love”

“Pain paid”

“High & Dry”

Title of a Radiohead song. While reading the lyrics, I noticed the line “You broke another mirror”, which links to Yoongi and his shards of glass from the mirror he broke in Run, which seemed to create some sort of chain reaction among the boys.

“Siste, viator”

Typically used on Roman roadside tombs, meaning “stop, traveller”

“Collapsing”

“Paradise is”

“I do believe in fairies”

A quote from Peter Pan. @taetaetown has a really good theory on how Peter Pan links to the whole INU/Prologue/Run universe, which you can read here and here.

“To young to die”

Probably supposed to be “too young to die”, which links to the possible deaths of the members. The words are split up into two lines, and the word “paid” is written before “to die”, giving it an overall reading of “paid to die”. Not sure if this was intentional or not, but that seems pretty fishy.

“The end”

“Vida”

Vida has Latin origins, and means “Long live”, or just “Live!” in languages such as Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.




Seokjin’s room

“Nevermind”

Name of Intro for 화양연화 pt. 2, as well as an album by Nirvana.

“In bloom”

Song by Nirvana, written by Kurt Cobain. It is the second track in Nevermind.

“Butterfly”

The black spray paint towards the top right of the butterfly looks like it may have said “Butterfly” before most of the word got erased. There are also butterflies flying in the room, and Seokjin is known to be connected with butterflies throughout the music videos.

“Goodbye Jin”

Originally, I thought this said “collapsing”, which also appears in Taehyung’s room, but it has been since pointed out to me that it might also say “Goodbye Jin”. It’s rare that they included a direct reference to one of the members, and this is significant as it alienates Seokjin even more from the members. Either they have left him, or he has left them.




Main Room

“YOLO”

“You only live once”

“Pro Memoria”

Latin for “for memory”. Also in Taehyung’s room. Thank you very much to  @little-boat-boy for telling me that this phrase was said to “remind you not to forget about the dead, and that they are alive in your minds.” This is scarily relevant (if the theories are true) to the fact that the members, apart from Namjoon, have died, and that Seokjin is living with his memories of them. People also added “gloria” to the phrase, which means butterfly. This is because butterflies are fragile yet still important. Butterflies were often related to memories and the dead.

“Teen Spirit”

Probably a reference to Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana, the first track in Nevermind.

“3.1.2016″

Not sure if this is completely relevant to the story, but I’ll include it anyway. The 1st of March 2016 marks the 97th anniversary of the Samil Movement. 
This was a series of demonstrations for Korea’s independence from Japan, and was suppressed a year later by the Japanese. Over the year, around two million Koreans participated and many were arrested, wounded or killed.
BTS tweeted about this with the hashtag #Remember1919. 

“What really knocks me out is a book…”

From a quote by J.D. Salinger, author of The Catcher in the Rye.
The rest of the quote doesn’t seem to appear, however the full quote reads: “What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”

Your skin makes me cry”

A line from Radiohead’s Creep. Guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood once said the song was about “recognizing what you are”.

“Henry II”

This is really random and I can’t seem to find anything at all that links at all to the plot. However it must have some sort of significance, so I’ll be looking into this a bit more.

“Ruined”

“Save me”

Also appears in the phone box multiple times. This was revealed to be a track on the new 화양연화 Young Forever album.

“Our home is nowhere”

This could reference the song …But Home Is Nowhere by AFI. The lyrics of the song are pretty cryptic, and seem to fit into the concept. One particular line stood out to me, “discarnate, preternatural”. Discarnate is defined as “not having a physical body”, a reference to spirits and ghosts. Preternatural, in contrast to supernatural, assumes that it is a phenomena with an unknown explanation. It is said to be “suspended between the mundane and the miraculous.”

“You think I’m bad”

Thank you very much to @dailydoseofdia​ for messaging me about this quote. It could be a reference to a book called Kill or Cure, part of The Afterblight Chronicles, in which a plague has killed a large portion of the human population.
The full quote reads: “You think I’m bad, that this society is bad, but that’s only because you haven’t seen the rest of the world.” I think this is a really interesting quote, as it could link to the naivety and youth of the (dead?) members who really haven’t seen much of the world yet.

“Ode to youth”

A poem written in 1820 by Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz. Also the name of the OST for Secretly Greatly.

Painful

The word “painful” appears, but it is crossed out. “Pain” is spray painted over and over again on the walls of this room.

“Don’t trust”

Links to “won’t trust, can’t trust, don’t trust”




Other

Nirvana

There seem to be a lot of references to Nirvana.
The state of nirvana is defined as “a transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self, and the subject is released from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the final goal of Buddhism.”
Essentially, it is an ideal state of peace and happiness.

The Catcher in the Rye

The book is quoted on the walls, as is the author, J.D. Salinger.
Published in 1951, it is about a teenager’s struggle with growing up and death. It highlights the innocence of childhood vs. the artificiality of the adult world. A main theme which appears throughout the book is the preservation of youth, which fits perfectly into Bangtan’s concept, and has an ominous link to the recurring line of “youth is never coming back”

Easy

The word “easy”, or more often, “easy easy”, appear multiple times throughout the video in different rooms. These words also appear in the photobook for 화양연화 pt. 2. Easy easy is a song by King Krule, who had a troubled childhood and was diagnosed with at least one mental illness. The line “Cause if you going through hell, we just keep going” can be easily linked to the struggles that the boys go through in the music video.

Angel Numbers

I’m going out on a limb here, and I’m not too sure about this. The numbers 626 and 42 appear in that main garage where the dance part of the music video occurs. These numbers must be there for one reason or another, so I looked into the meanings of the angel numbers.
Angel number 626 brings the message of trusting your surroundings and the situations you are put in, and knowing that everything will work out in the end, for the better. It also tells you to trust the energies of the angels guiding you. It is a number which relies greatly on trust, and contrasts with the message of “won’t trust, can’t trust, don’t trust” portrayed in the music video.
Angel number 42 is a message to pursue your passions and fulfil your life purpose. It also encourages you to maintain your faith in the angels, which once again links back to trust. The number 42 is also named as the meaning of life in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Song titles

The titles of some BTS songs appear in the garage as well. I’m not sure if they’re there just to fill up space or if they have some sort of meaning behind them, but Dope, Let Me Know and Just One Day are all written on the walls.

Eighth rest

The musical symbol for an eighth rest, or quaver rest, appears in more than one room. It is the notation for 1/8 of a beat of silence.

I think I got most of the important ones, if there’s any I missed please message me~

Last Sentence Meme

I was tagged by @jeeno2, @pookieh, @peetaspikelets, @deinde-prandium, @maxwellandlovelace, @jennagill, @thelettersfromnoone, @eala-musings, and @ambpersand to post the last sentence of my current WIP. Thanks for thinking of me!! <3 It was awesome to read what you guys have been working on, even if it was sometimes just a snarky email or something you unburied in a dusty draft folder. ;) 

I used to only work on one thing at a time, but lately I’m trash, so I have a fuckton of WIPs, some more current than others, that I toggle among as the mood strikes. Here’s what I’ve got for them. 

A Modern Love:

He smiled at her, either because he noticed the way she was eyefucking him or because he didn’t, and ordered, chatting with her about something for a moment before making his way over to the pick up counter.

Bullseye:

Mrs. Mellark sits at the head of the table, Mr. Mellark at the opposite end.

Against the Wall:

“So the blonde from the diner—Delly, I think you said her name was (she knew goddamn well what her name was)—how do you two, ah, know each other?” 

Untitled Feysand/ACOTAR Drabble:

And night— She is its sensual kiss, its cool secrets and hushed promises.

In The Sun (I Feel As One):

Later, when he painted this, he’d make her eyes the color of shale, the rabbit’s liver a deep, rich aubergine, and he’d stroke himself to the memory of this, imagining her brows were knitted from the force of him thrusting inside her.

What Is Past Is Prologue:

Fifty yards or so behind them, through the haze of the tear gas, I saw a Molotov cocktail go flying, landing uselessly in the middle of the street to burn itself out.

Untitled RomZomCom:

As long as their wounds weren’t too ghastly and the rot hadn’t set in, their teeth could be knocked out, they could be collared up, and presto! Your beloved, belated family and friends could become your new guard dog. 

Errata:

I fill in the blanks myself: we should find other partners, divide the work now to minimize contact, fuck and marry and have a million babies. 


I dunno who has already done this or what, but I’m tagging: @ohmakemeahercules, @alliswell21, @tomshollandss, @badnovels@absnow, @wildlyglittering, @muttpeeta@mareebrittenford, @roseymama, @herainab, @lvfics@inloveinwonder, @the-peeta-pocket, @andthisisthewonder, @dianaflynn22, @drivebyanon@everlylark, @peeta-pit, @everhutcher, @pinksnailsaver, @everllarkingnewtina, @hutcherette, @lovesbiggerthanpride, @awhiskeyriver, @que-sera-sera88, @thetruthisinthetooth, and @appleblossomgirl0305. No pressure, but I’d love to see something from you guys. <3c

Okay but lili posted a picture of a meme from reddit on her story and cole... uses... reddit.... I'm starting to become desperate or a tad too obsessed

literally I thought the same exact thing… 

can I add to this desperation and obsession? I noticed in those stories she’s using a 15 inch macbook pro (based off the speaker holes on the side) and as far as I know, based of previous snaps & insta stories, she has an older version of a  13 inch macbook pro. so unless she bought a new laptop, could she be using a certain reddit user’s laptop? HAHAHA I ACTUALLY REALLY HATE MYSELF FOR NOTICING THIS

Rae Spoon “Armour” Lyrics Meme

Armour

  • We feel it before we wake up.
  • You know every stone I placed was to build a life for you.
  • There’s no amount of damage that we can’t withstand. 
  • We are not made to be broken, even by our own hands.
  • But there’s no place we can begin.
  • On our bodies we wear armour.

I Hear Them Calling

  • I want to live like this all the time.
  • The beasts of wanting say “let me out”.
  • I could stay underground, but I want to sing.
  • Let’s take a chance and scream at the wind.

Written Across the Sky

  • There will be no miracles.
  • There’s nothing spiritual about holding our empty cups.
  • We’re hungry.
  • Our screams will split lightening and bring on the flood.
  • There is no glory in a forest of doubt.

Can’t Go Right

  • There is nothing left to mend.
  • Somethings happen you can’t take back.
  • Some things can’t go right again.
  • We are fighting a battle that no one can win.
  • I have told you over and over that I know who I am.
  • If you don’t believe me we are way past the last stand.

Wrestles With Death

  • I asked the stars to pull away time.
  • They said no, no, no.
  • I asked the sky to blow out my light.
  • I asked the sea to swallow me.
  • I wrote my way away the edge.

Stolen Song

  • I can see what made you so hungry to be someone new in the big city.
  • You can try it on, but you can take it off.
  • That’s why it doesn’t belong to you.
  • That’s what made me so hungry to stick up, to stand out.
  • I could try it on, but I could take it off.
  • That’s why it doesn’t belong to me.
  • It’s a stolen song.

The Beast is Me

  • Blue is the colour and the sound when I chase myself around.
  • I I can’t sit still and I can’t stay down.
  • When I hear them call from the deep, I know that the beast is me.
  • Orange is the sky in the morning when I wonder if I’ll ever sing again.
  • Gray is sound of the quiet.

Flood

  • You come out of nowhere and bring on the flood. 
  • I will swim for you if that’s what you want. 
  • What is between us if you aren’t out for blood? 
  • I will bleed for you if that’s what you want.
  • Sing for all that has been stolen. 
  • Bodies broken are still perfect.
  • Break the dam and make a new world.

Go for the Kill

  • It’s not enough to reach for a touch. 
  • You have become what you’re longing.
  • Where do you go when you’re wounded?
  • I live so you can chase me.

Try Again at Everything

  • I do not trust the ground, but I float above it when you’re around.
  • I will wear your grandmother’s ring and try again at everything.
  • We both want to stay free.
  • If it’s true to you then it’s true to me.
  • I would not have believed that I could find a family.
  • I failed life and it failed me.
  • I thought it was so out of reach.
Being BFF’s With Markson

Jackson x Mark x Reader best friend au

  • How you meet:
  • You meet through Amber from f(x).
  • One day she invites you over to her home where Jackson and a couple of her other friends were there for a small dinner party.
  • You end up getting along with everyone but it’s Jackson who insists on exchanging numbers with you. 
  • He ends up inviting you over to GOT7′s next concert and you hang out backstage due to you also being an idol and not wanting to cause a fuss in the audience.
  • All the boys know who you are and compliment your music while you wish them luck on their performance, but it’s Jackson and Mark who keep you the most company.
  • When they finish their performance you feel just as tired as they do because you had been low-key dancing and signing along with their music and Jackson gave you a very unwanted sweaty hug followed by Mark who you found yourself being more comfortable around than the other boys excluding Jackson.
  • You end up going out to eat with both Jackson and Mark and the entire night is filled with laughs and never-ending conversations.
  • From then on, Jackson and Mark become as close to you as Amber and you hang out with the two men more than you do with your own members it seems.
  • Mark and Jackson are usually pranking you.
  • At one point they film one of their many pranks and post it on Instagram making your friendship public.
  • You three don’t mind sharing you friendship and continue posting about each other.
  • Mark and Jackson insist on always taking you out to eat because they claim you’re happier with a full stomach??
  • Jackson showing you friendly affection in public and fans love it.
  • Mark is too shy but once in a while he will hug you as a goodbye or a greeting.
  • You, Mark, and Jackson speaking in both English and Korean in one conversation and anyone who is around you gets annoyed because of it but you guys don’t care because it’s your own little language.
  • Both of them teach you Mandarin.
  • You fail at learning Mandarin.
  • Being super supportive of each other’s music.
  • Constantly being showered in praises by Markson whether it be on your outfit choice, latest performance, or new single.
  • You needing to tell Markson to chill because they could act like children at times.
  • Being squished in a Markson hug when you’re cold or sad.
  • You calling the boy’s pet names when they’re upset to make them feel better. It works 9/10 times.
  • Markson wanting to take those couple photos with you since you’re all single asf. You only take the pictures because they bribe you with food.
  • Markson sending you memes when your apart because they miss you.
  • You surprising them on their tour and vice versa.
  • Markson + you selfies are always A1 and become trending on Twitter constantly.
  • You and Mark ganging up on Jackson because it’s funny to see him become bothered by your jokes.
  • Then you apologize with ice cream.
  • Markson being high-key clingy friends.
  • You don’t care though because you have your clingy moments too.
  • That one time at that one award show when your group one your first award ever and Markson ran on stage completely unscripted and lifted you in the air together.
  • It became an iconic music award moment.
  • You crying when they picked you up and thanking them for being your bestest friends in your acceptance speech along with your members.
  • You crying again when GOT7 wins an award but you have to chill or else your members will kill you lmao.
  • Markson + you crying/hugging/laughing/teasing backstage after your award wins & it’s all caught on camera and posted online.
  • EVERYONE DIES BECAUSE WE ALL WANT FRIENDS LIKE THIS.

The list of crazy wacky legit Kaishin AUs me and my friend have came up with.

I wanted to make a weird little list of all of the AUs me and my friend have came up with, cause oh boy do we talk for hours on end siting around downtown about this shit. So here we go!

-Serial Killer Shinichi AU (aka Yandara Shin-chan)
This is a fully flushed out AU and has a full plot, and it will never see the light of day. Shinichi is vary jealous and basically kills everyone close to Kaito, and Ran cause Shinichi fucks up and she finds out, and his Father cause he puts it together.
(And the ending is like, ‘just when you thought it was over, it’s not’) and weird Umineko shit for endgame. (Heiji is the only one spared)

-Crystal Gem AU, (aka blunt rip off of SU, Shinichi is Pandora, and Pandora is a ‘gem’)
Kaito finds Pandora and it turns into Shinichi, poor Shin-chan has been trapped for over 300 years and experience the new world. Kaito is smitten. Shinichi as a double has a ability and a weapon, ability to see when someone is lying, and his weapon is a scythe.
Aaaaaand Merpreg. (I hate it but fuck do I want to see their love child)

-Death God Kaito AU (aka Kaito KID looks good in white and gold)
Kaito is a Shimigami that wanders collecting souls. He sees smoll shin-chan at a crime seen with his dad and notices the child has a bad luck curse placed on him.
He follows Shinichi through out his youth and indirectly saves him from serious injury caused by the curse. Shinichi almost dies and Kaito realizes he can’t always be there and that Shinichi is human. Go’s hunting for a gem called (oh I bet you can guess it) Pandora that can grant immortality, he becomes 'Kaito KID’ when Shinichi is 16 to look for Pandora and to one day invite Shin-chan to his heists.

Firewatch AU (aka Shinichi is a weak city noodle and Kaito fuckin lifts)
Shinichi wanting to get away from all the murder and his failed romance with Ran, takes the job as a Firewatch men in America (we don’t question why there in America) where his supervising watchman is Kaito Kuroba, a charismatic asshole that gos hang gliding off the souther east cliff ever Wednesday morning.
Shinichi is unexperienced (he lied on the Application form) in the bush and Kaito coaches him through it. First summer is all playful ratio banter, and getting to know each, the serious doki doki form. (Then everything sets one fire)

Kitsune AU!! (aka I really just wanted a reason to slap a fox mask on Shinichi)
Their in Feudal Japan, Shinichi is a Kitsune (a nine tail fox) and is quite content with his life when he is attacked by a hunter. All of his tails are cut of and he is left barely alive. He is saved by a Miko named Ran that takes him back to the Temple, he heals at there shrine, and when he is fully healed he leaves at night and steals the secret mask of the gods. He sets out to look for his missing tails with his now human form, and along the way encounters another Kitsune that just won’t leave him
alone.

Day and Night AU (aka he don’t shrink, he gets cursed!!)
Shinichi pisses off MK famous witch and gets cursed. Every day when the sun rises Shinichi converts to his 6 year old self, and at sunset turns back to 16. This puts stress on his normal way of living and seeks an outlet. Kaito KIDs heist become the perfect coping mechanism. Kaito is vary interested in this homicide detective attending his heists and wants to know more about him, but why in the hell cant he find him during the day.

Pandora Shinichi AU (aka this all could of been fixed with talking to one another)
Shinichi is left alone with Kaito KIDs heist target in a stressful situation and it turns out to be Pandora. The gem becomes crack and he accidentally becomes the new 'host’ for the double gem. Not having any idea what has happened to him, he doesn’t tell anybody and slowly become distant with everyone, especially one vary concerned Phantom Thief.


Prank AU (aka, meme central, aka let’s torture Kaito!, aka crack AU, aka memes for days. The Bastardization of Conan Edogawa)
Everything’s the same except everything is one fire. Conan is a meme loving fuck and memes on Kaito 24/7. Cone just wants the D and Kaito is like 'no u like 5’. Cone sets Kaito’s house one fire saying it’s just a prank. Cone shoots Kaito in foot cause he’s denied the D, it’s just a prank bro ;D Cone has a TV crew that followed him around as he runs up to Kaito KID and kicks him in the dick, Kaito wants nothing more then for the pain to end.
Cone has mad YouTube revenue, 'Kaito KID Loser, Accidentally Killed Father Prank Gone Wrong, Gone Sexual, Gone Violent, Police Called, Ambulance Called, Real Death, Mom Called, Mori Ran Called, Featuring DJ Kali.’
Kaito KIDs ultimate revenge prank is 9/11. (#kaitoKIDdid911#itsjustaprank)

I’m pretty sure there’s a few more I’m forgetting, I’ll add them if I remembered. Feel free to ask me about the AUs, I have a lot of them flushed out in my head!
