How easy it was to forget that the world outside was in ruins. In Reed’s arms, it’s impossible for Savannah to feel anywhere but home.
They dance to euphonious silence, their bare feet clumsily moving across the concrete floor. Their laughter rings through the hall like sweet music. Savannah cannot remember the last time she was allowed such freedom from her surroundings. She closes her eyes, Reed’s touch electrifying her where their fingers tangle. All at once, she is safe and filled with adrenaline. Maybe that’s what it means to love somebody, or simply to feel alive.
“You can’t dance,” she teases, giggling as he twirls her. She stumbles into his chest and the two of them burst out laughing once again. The dimple on his left cheek indents with his smile.
“So charming,” he remarks, drawing her closer. “But you’re no better.”
He raises her arm with an impish smile and right here, enveloped by his warmth, the sound of his voice, and the lingering smell of the woods outside that clings to him no matter what, she has never felt more at peace.
I commissioned the OTHERWORLDLY/AMAZING/TALENTED/BRILLIANT @eerna to draw my OCs Reed and Savannah AND I CANNOT STOP SMILING. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. ILY JO AND THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER.
do you ever think that each and every member of nct being together is fate?
like, think about it for a second.
taeil got into sm at the same time he got into the university he had always wanted to go to. he knew he had to pick one, so he picked university. but after a while, he realized nothing would make him as happy as he felt when he sang. so he quit university, and joined sm instead.
taeyong was street casted. do you know how insane it is to think that sm street casted someone as talented as him? he’s an amazing rapper, dancer, and vocalist with an incredible stage presence. it’s almost unreal to think he entered the company by chance.
haechan’s dream to be a singer came by complete coincidence. he couldn’t sleep one night, so he turned on the tv. as soon as he turned it on, the music video for shinee’s replay came on. it sparked his desire to sing on stage, so he auditioned. and he got in.
since predebut, fans were not expecting the minis to end up debuting with the hyung line because of the age difference. but despite nct’s crazy unit and rotational system, it was made so that trainees of all ages could join as members. imagining nct without the younger members seems impossible now. i will never not be glad that sm kept the sr15b together in one group.
winwin practiced traditional chinese dance in one of the top three art schools in china where he got street casted. he had doubts, but decided to go to korea for a month to check it out. in that one month, he knew that this was what he wanted for his future. he himself said he believed it was destiny that he joined sm.
johnny trained for nine years. he’s been in the company for a long time, and probably had doubts on if he would ever debut. i think he wasn’t put in exo for a reason. because although exo is crazy popular and johnny would be extremely well known, nct suits him so well. he has grown so close to the other members, they’re practically his family now.
chenle was a singer in china. he had his own solo albums, and even his own solo concert before he even joined sm. he had a career set for him, but instead he moved away from home to a strange country to become an idol. even we, as fans, were not expecting him. but now, i can’t see nct without him.
i don’t know. i’ve never really believed in fate or destiny. but i think if it’s real, this is what it looks like.
like ppl always talk about how miserable they are and how gloomy their lyrics sound but when you have thousands of people singing along at the top of their lungs to a song that came out 20 years ago and is being played by a band that’s been around for 30 odd years and like every person in the field and on the stage and watching from their laptops around the world is smiling so wide their faces look like they’re gonna split open, that is what a feel good band is. and it’s radiohead. doesn’t matter what they sing about, it’s how it makes you feel.
The Artemis Fowl books advocate for the environment, deal with misogyny in the workplace and the need for feminism, and has some of the best character development arcs like ever over the span of eight books. Also, there’s magic and fairies with guns and time travel and a whole lot of sarcasm and really no downside to reading them
This post about Vulcans and physical contact is suddenly giving me all the feels because like… I mean basically from a Vulcan point of view Kirk is behaving like a complete uncivilized heathen not fit for proper society, and would likely be considered a negative influence on Spock, what with all the Touching™ they get up to all day long. And it is almost always Jim who initiates that, especially in their earlier years; it’s just a marvel that from the very start, Spock never ever seems to mind at all.
But… I mean the thing is that Spock is not all Vulcan. He likes to pretend he is but he isn’t, and there are more than enough studies that show how immensely important it is for human beings to have physical contact – in whatever way, it doesn’t really matter, but we’re human and we need to be touched. Imagine carrying that need in you, so much more pronounced than in any other person on your entire goddamn planet (except for your oh-so-very-human mother); imagine growing up in a society where except for extremely limited and specific circumstances, even the most harmless initiation of physical contact is Not Done. It’s a taboo, it’s an absolute no-go. But I guarantee you Spock has that need, and just like all the things about him that might betray him as being more human than Vulcan sometimes, he pushes it down and denies it to himself because jesus, living in a society like that, what else would he do?
And then along comes Jim. And Jim doesn’t give a hoot about all this “no touching the touch telepaths” claptrap, from the very start he doesn’t, not where Spock is concerned. And you could probably argue that this is very inconsiderate and rude behavior, that he’s smashing headfirst through all sorts of Vulcan personal space boundaries on the daily, and I would argue back that yes, yes he is, and that is entirely and completely the point. Because he needs to do it; because Spock lets him do it. Because these boundaries are society/species-imposed, not personally imposed by Spock, and Jim Kirk is not an asshole. If Spock had ever indicated to him that he was actually serious about not wanting to be touched
by him, he would’ve backed off to the other end of the cosmos in a heartbeat. (And then pined quite tragically from afar and lectured any young boys he came across about how if you really love someone you go slow, you be gentle, you’ll know if they really love you back, but ok I digress, I JUST LOVE JIM KIRK OK)
What I’m GETTING AT here is that, goddammit, Spock needs this; exactly this sort of uninhibited but consensual boundary-crossing. I’ll bet you anything that when their five-year mission started, he remembered and catalogued every single brush of the arm or hand on his shoulder, because that’s what you do when you’re a touch-starved half-Vulcan with a crush on your Captain, okay. And so Jim gets that privilege, and Spock allows this kind of intimacy, and then, after some time, he also starts to initiate it, and they live together happily in their own
little sphere where the concept of personal space between the two of them no longer appears to exist (Exhibit A). And that’s even before that time they hold hands really hard and then also get married.
