EXCLUSIVE: BTS Celebrate Their Biggest Album Ever and Reveal What They Love About Themselves

Welcome to BTS’ next chapter.

The K-pop boyband shocked the biggest names in music when they beat out artists like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez for the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards in May – but their success is no surprise.

With 8.4 million Twitter followers and a fan base so dedicated it’s referred to as ARMY, BTS is one of the hottest acts in Asia, and soon, the United States.

“There is much more recognition of BTS music than before the BBMAs,” V, one of the band’s seven members, told ET. “Which means fans have higher expectations than before. We’re trying to live up to it and I hope the new album can be the answer to that expectation.”

The new album, Love Yourself: Her, dropped on Monday and was even shattering records weeks before its release with over one million pre-orders, according to BTS’ label, BigHit Entertainment. By Tuesday, Love Yourself had already topped the iTunes Album charts at No. 1 in a record-breaking 73 countries, the largest debut release for any South Korean artists. And “DNA,” the album’s lead single, is also blowing up on YouTube with nearly 30 million views since its early Monday release.

ET caught up with V, Rap Monster, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, Suga and J-Hope on Tuesday, where they opened up about their incredible success, their fifth EP, and what’s next.

Q. Love Yourself: Her is already a huge hit around the world. Were you surprised?

Rap Monster: We’re surprised at the huge response when each album is released but it is beyond our expectation and overwhelming this time. Our new songs topped iTunes chart in 73 countries and made its debut at No. 4 on the US iTunes Song chart. “DNA” music video views surpassed 10 million in just 8 hours, which was the fastest for Korean artists ever. We are very grateful to our fans worldwide for appreciating our music and video.

Q. The music video for “DNA” is a little different from your past music videos, and includes some intense choreography – what does this mean for other music videos off this album? How long did it take to shoot the video?

J-Hope: BTS’ music videos always have intense choreography, but it was even more difficult to learn all the dance moves before the shoot. It may look different compared to previous videos due to complex use of computer graphics and edit styles for “DNA” video, but it took three full days to shoot. Everyone was great in learning the choreography, although there were many different moves we had to perform for the video. Personally, I think Jungkook and Jimin really pulled it off nicely.

Q. You collaborated with The Chainsmoker’s Andrew Taggart on the song “Best of Me” after meeting at the BBMAs. What was the collaboration process like? What did you learn from him?

Rap Monster: We first met at the BBMAs last May. [We] were invited to The Chainsmokers’ rehearsal backstage for the award show and we had fun talking about music and many things. The duo sent us several tracks after we returned home from BBMAs and we selected a couple of tracks to work together. “Best of Me” was the best for our new album in many ways so we decided to write lyrics and finish it together. The song came out great and we were all satisfied with the collaborative process. Andrew is awesome; he’s passionate about music and I think there should be more opportunities for us to work again in near future.

Q. Who’s your next big dream collaborator?

Jungkook: My biggest dream collaborator would be Justin Bieber because I just love his voice and the way he collaborates with other artists. However, I’d like to give it a try with whoever has the right chemistry with BTS musically.

Suga: I’m pretty much open to anyone who’s unique and has mutual appreciation in the music as BTS. I have some tracks and songs written for future collaboration and I’m happy to work with artists who have the right voice and taste.

Q. The song “Skit: Billboard Music Awards,” features Rap Monster’s speech from the awards show – what made you choose to incorporate that into your new album?

Rap Monster: It was one of many ideas we had for this album and we all thought that it would mean a lot to BTS and our fans if we have it permanently in the album and cherish that special moment for everyone. We’re facing the second chapter with Love Yourself: Her in terms of music and life and the BBMAs is like a new turning point for BTS in many ways.

Q. Rap Monster already revealed that Barack Obama was an inspiration for “MIC Drop” – Why? Who else were you inspired by on this album?

Suga: There are so many things that inspire us. For me, it’s people around me. And for RM, it can be books he reads. In general, what fans talk about and think about become a very important source of inspiration to us, because we want to write something that’s real to people, especially those who listen to BTS’ music.

Q. During your live stream on Monday, Rap Monster said that his favorite song is “Ocean,” but that song wasn’t released with the album. What can you tease about when the song will drop, and what it sounds like?

Rap Monster: It’s one of two hidden tracks you can listen to only on the physical album. “Ocean” has a lot of things I thought about since my debut in BTS four years ago. I have lived through many different dreams, worries and emotions in past years and I wanted to share those moments in the song. Sound-wise, there’s guitar and synth and the song is over five minutes, which is quite long. I hope people like it as one of the surprises I’ve prepared.

Q. You changed up your hair color since we last saw you – who decides when it’s time to change your look?

Jimin and J-Hope: The hair color decision is based on the concept of the new album and the timing is discussed with the whole production timeline. Each member’s opinion counts, so our stylists and creative team propose optional colors for us to choose from. But at the end of the day, they’re professionals and they know what they’re doing and in most cases, the proposed colors turn out to be the best for each member.

Q. This new album marks a new chapter in your careers after School, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life and Wings. What do you want fans to know about this new era of BTS?

Rap Monster: We tried many new things for this album and I’d like to label it as “innovative,” if I may. There will be new styled songs, new video, and many new things from now on. We want to evolve as artists and develop what we have within ourselves. If we ever slow down or even fail for our trials, it’s OK and we’ll be and stay as BTS. In addition, I’d like people to love themselves and think about what true love is while listening to the new album, because real love calls for courage to appreciate myself as is.  

Q. What do each of you love about yourselves?

Jin: I love my face and how it looks, which I appreciate very much.

Jimin: I love my attitude towards work and tendency for perfection.

V: My newly discovered talent to shoot great photos.  

Q. You’re wrapping up your tour this December. When will you be back performing in the U.S.?

Rap Monster: We do have plans for a world tour in 2018 so we will definitely go back to the U.S. soon and meet our fans as much as we can. If there’s any special opportunity for us any time soon, we’ll make sure to share it with you first.

NUMBER ONE

Camila has officially gone and done it. Her very first number one hit, the third female artist to top the 2017 UK charts, the first ever Cuban American singer/songwriter to top the charts in the UK. She’s made history, broken records and stayed as grateful and humble as ever. This is what you call a superstar. Dreams come true kids, you’ve just got to believe in them.

lonnie-the-bird  asked:

I love how you did research before starting a comic (like calling the characters in each room). it's makes it much better quality. I'm a fan who went to every possible room in undertale and called papyrus(and undyne in a separate timeline) and I always find myself raging when people do something that doesn't actually fit the canon.

HUH??? WHY ARE YOU CALLING ME??

THANK YOU!! Oooh my gosh, we have read over so much stuff in the game repeatedly. When doing Chara’s story we constantly headed back to double check we weren’t contradicting anything in the game. And it got even worse in Forgettable! We had to double check the first arc and the game sooo much. And repeat over the planned plot to ensure we weren’t going to mess it up.

That said, I LOVE CALLING PAPYRUS. He is so funny! And when Undyne can join in it just gets better!

But what you said really made me think, I honestly believe many people didn’t realize you could call Papyrus in pretty much every room after the ruins. (The Core and True Lab excluded)

Because during the calls is where you learn the most about Papyrus, but many people play him off as a moron, which really does contradict a lot of what you learn about him during the phone calls. Such as his artistic abilities that I bring up whenever I can (which is why he’s the one drawing blueprints in the first arc! ;3)

THIS BRIDGE LOOKS DANGEROUS, BUT IT’S VERY STABLE.

IN FACT, IT’S JUST A ROCK FORMATION I PAINTED OVER.

I THINK IT LOOKS MORE DRAMATIC THAT WAY. 

The gauntlet of deadly horror. Is a rock formation painted over to look like a bridge. This skeleton!! Gah. He hurts my feelings. He’s so sweet. WHY CAN’T HE BE REAL.

Woah man, I’ve got so much love for that dude [Zayn], like, look at him, look at the position he’s in. He’s trying to be true to himself, he’s following his own instincts artistically and like I said in this time when people are being told that -you know- brown people or Muslims or immigrants or the boogie man, it’s important to have someone like that, at that level, doing what he is. And he’s repping hard, man. So yeah, that track is a freestyle track man, we jumped in and we just spatted off the dome and you have to wait to see - how and why the song is called Zayn Malik. I’m not giving too much away.

This is absolutely disgusting. This has got to stop. When will people learn that idols are people too. They aren’t just some object that you can defile any time you feel like it. I don’t care how many followers you have or if you think you’re a someone special because a famous youtuber follows you. This is wrong. If you would have just posted it to your account I would have thought it was gross and then just moved on, but you actually had the audacity to tag Monsta X’s official instagram account. Where were you when they taught basic manners and courtesy? How were you raised that you think this is okay to tag them in? These idols aren’t you friends on a personal level. You don’t have the right to do this. “Fans” (I use the term loosely here since I don’t consider people who disrespect artists like this true fans) like you are what makes it hard for other fans to be able to enjoy their faves. If people keep doing this and other disrespectful things to idols just like what happened with BamBam on Twitter, idols will stop doing this type of fan service and real fans chances to interact with their idols will get taken away. Don’t be the bad apple that ruins it for the whole group. All I’m saying is 1.) Don’t disrespect an idol to their faces by calling them daddy in public 2.) Don’t disrespect an idol at a concert or fanmeet because you didn’t get picked to be paired with your favorite member (Seriously grow up. Thank your lucky stars you not only got to go to a fanmeet, but that you got chosen to interact with any of them whether they are your bias or not. If you can’t do that then sit down because plenty of fans would love to take your place.)  3.) Don’t ask for other members on an idols solo vlive or any type of broadcast. It’s rude and can hurt their feelings. If you don’t want to see that member then don’t watch. 4.) Don’t demand that your idols speak in your language. These idols have fans on multiple continents. If you want them to speak your language then they would have to learn everyone’s and that’s not realistic. We have wonderful fans who spend hours translating videos and messages in a ton of different languages without being asked. Enjoy their hard work and thank them. 5.) Don’t send lewd pictures or videos like the one above to an idol’s official sns. Its tasteless and gross. 6.) Don’t make fun of an idol or the way they look or dress on an sns you know they are active on. Idols are humans too and have the same feelings you and I do. We all joke and talk about our biases and none of us are innocent of making suggestive or silly comments. But keep it on your private sns or in your group chats and tags and don’t for the love of God tag the group in it. Have some class, it’s that simple. Common courtesy is a thing. Learn it. Live it.

anonymous asked:

I know you don't partake in watching vet shows, but how do they affect how people view you as a veterinarian, and how do they affect young people who want to become future veterinarians? Do you have a lot of clients come in with a certain expectation of you because they watched said veterinarian show?

I don’t think veterinarian media is all that widely consumed. Certainly the most common veterinarian narrative in the media seems to be ‘veterinarians are ripping you off’, which is extraordinarily frustrating when I see so many cases that could have been fixed cheaply if I saw them early, instead of leaving them to worsen.

The sort of narratives that people are expecting when they come to the clinic, almost tropes really, seem to be these:

  • Money is no object. That we will somehow bend the rules and treat for free.
  • Male vet = Dream catch (at any age mind you! 70 year olds are not out of the game.)
  • So you have a CT scanner here, right?
  • But you’re also still all like James Herriot, old school and folksy.
  • It must be a fun job, playing with puppies and kittens all day
  • That the vet is your friend because you see him once a year and he will do you favors
  • That everything will be dropped immediately to see their patient.

But at the same time they are expecting the ‘vets are expensive’ angle, which means just about anything I suggest over $20 will be framed in their mind as ‘expensive’ instead of ‘good value’.

Future veterinarians get fed this glossy and polished version of veterinary medicine in the media. You either see all good stuff or ‘heartbreaking’ content that still frames the veterinarian as kind hearted and passionate. You tend not to see the gallows humor, the depression and mental health, the morbid fascination with pathology or the cruelty and neglect humans are capable of.

When cruelty is presented in media it’s usually distant. It’s framed as “This horrible person did X but we’ve rescued the animal now and here’s its recovery,” but in veterinary medicine you’re often face to face with the person, trying to convince them to do what needs to be done.

So veterinarian media tends not to discuss our mental health, the undesirable behavior of the general public or how morbid it can be. It paints veterinarians as dedicated, passionate and selfless but at the same time media will often call us greedy, scam artists and money hungry. So we get stuck in this dichotomy and often become afraid to value our work fairly or ask for money for fear of being one of the ‘bad’ vets.

You tend not to see the grit, you only see the polish. That’s true to a large extent even with this blog, though I’ve tried to not censor my feelings or emotions about assorted topics. You don’t get to see everything that I feel and think, but you do get to see that I’m a human, not a character.

Interesting from my point of view, when I do show too much negative emotions, I get ‘called out’ about it. This is annoying because on the one hand I feel what I feel, and if I’m angry I don’t think it’s fair that I should have to hide, but at the same time it’s not what’s expected from the veterinarian narrative, even on Tumblr. So I tend to keep more of a lid on things.

If I can accomplish only one thing with this blog, it would be to add to the veterinarian narrative, so that we’re seen more as people and less as some sort of animal loving martyr.

An: i am soooooo sorry about how late this is… well no matter here it is. :-)

part 2


You woke up, and judging by the sound of the house you were the only one awake. This makes sense as everyone else would still be getting used to the concept of sleep let alone waking up for what used to be a full day of hunting.

Wondering what you could do with the alone time that you had been gifted with, you decided to grab your drawing stuff and head to the back garden. On your way out you were flooded with memories from your childhood. All of which caused a smile to form on your lips.

Once you were outside you sat at your favourite spot, under a large tree facing the house.  Unsure of what to draw you decided upon one of your fondest memories. One where you and luci were a team and Gabriel and Michael was the opposing team, typical Raphael didn’t want to risk getting hurt, so he refereed. The game; piggyback racing.

An hour or so later you had completely finished, while examining your work you were joined by your brothers.

“What you drawing” luci asked. Trying to sneak a peek.

“Doesn’t matter what she’s drawing, it’s going to amazing either way” Michael replied all the while starting at the clouds.

It was true your drawing was brilliant, all your drawings were brilliant, you were the original artist. It was a gift from your dad when you were explaining how beautiful his creation was saying you wished you could create something as beautiful. With that art was born.

“you going to show us or what?” Gabriel impatiently asked.

Turning around your sketchbook, you revealed your creation.

“I remember that!! We totally kicked your ass’” Gabriel passionately shouted, although it would be fair enough to call it screaming.
“No you didn’t!” with those three words Gabe and Luci were having a scrap, with me and
Michael cheering on the side lines trying hard to keep out laughter in, yet drastically failing.

Little do you know your parents were watching from the window with smiles on their faces.

Essays in Existentialism: Vegas II

Okay, so I just read your Vegas prompt and I’m in love with the story and the characters. Any way you’d maybe do a part two? Like six moths later or something? I don’t know.. just write anything really I love your work. So yeah. Go you mate. 

Previously on Vegas

The city was absolutely dripping, soaked through to the bones with the rain that refused to stop after days and days and days. The bay itself seemed wetter than normal, while streets and shoes and welcome mats never got a chance to dry. Instead, the sidewalks and streetlights and window sills remained soggy fixtures in need of a good squeeze and sunshine. 

The water-logged inhabitants didn’t notice after the fourth day, they just seemed to collectively think they’d all fabricated the sunshine, and it never actually existed. Instead, they resigned themselves to becoming aquatic, and perhaps one day even getting gills.

Hello, my name's Eileen! I'm a trans girl who's trying to get back into drawing after years of pause and potentially sell my art. I absolutely love your art style and i was curious as to how one finds their style? I'm sorry if the question's worded poorly, but do you think you could give any advice? I'd appreciate it very much!

Hello, Eileen!
Aw, that’s the name of my favorite Bloodborne NPC!

Funny thing, “Peach Fuzz” is the farthest thing from my, what you one would actually call, my art style!

My advice is the same for EVERYONE (and I know some of you are tired of reading this, but it’s absolutely true)

Keep a sketchbook.
Draw everyday.
Draw from life everyday.

Your style will develop on its own. And, of course, it helps if you have artists that really resonate with you, but do NOT try to ONLY emulate their style.

And remember, not everything you draw has to be perfect! Just keep at it, and keep it varied!

Garcia and you were good friends but you hadn’t met the team at all and it was frustrating. “You’ve got this Y/N, the force is one with you.” you mumbled, playing with your necklace. The elevator doors dinged open and you stepped out, heading straight for the doors where a group of people stood crowded around a few desks in the bullpen. You recognized the lanky tall one to be Spencer from Penelope’s polaroid wall. He looked quite different with the 4th doctor get up. You also recognized Prentiss, the new unit chief, who seemed to be in the middle of a briefing.

You walked out in front of your members and bowed to the MC’s who welcomed you on the show. Standing uncomfortably, the MC’s interact with the rest of your members and not you. 

When introductions were over they came and stood next to you, “Hello! We’re uh.. MC’s for.. this show-ah.” 

You smiled and bowed saying hello in Korean. 

“Oh! I forgot you spoke Korean so well!” They said laughing with each other.

“Okay so, we have a serious question, do you think that the reason why you are so popular is because you’re an foreign leader?” One MC asked, cutting straight to the point. 

You cleared your throat, “Uh, I believe that our music and the way we work so well together is the reason that we are popular.” You defended. 

“Well many say the reason that you are so popular is because you are black and the fact BTS’ Rap Monster has taken an interest in you.” The other host stated.

You laughed slightly, uncomfortably, “I love being black and I happen to think that it’s an amazing thing to have a black person in a kpop group.” You defended yourself once again. 

“Don’t you get insecure though?”

“N-”

He cut you off by continuing, “I mean it’s obvious that the ideal type is a pale girl, that’s what is considered beautiful.” 

You bit your tongue and looked over at your manager, he didn’t say anything so you decided that you were going to give people a piece of your mind. 

“I don’t need to be considered ‘beautiful’ to someone who contains beauty in a box. I don’t need to fit the mold that you have of someone’s “Ideal Type.” I came to Korea to prove something, that anyone can make it if you want it bad enough. So no, I’m not insecure because I know my talent. If you do not like me simply because the color of my skin then that only reflects how simple-minded you are, and simple minds have no business judging anyone, or anything, let alone music. Music is about music, not how you look. “ You finished, walking off the set and taking off the mic that was attached to your shirt, you bowed before closing the studio door. 

You walked to your car and got inside of it. Tears fell down your cheeks and you couldn’t stop it. You grabbed and lit a cigarette with your shaking hands, inhaling the smoke that relaxed you when all of your phone rang.

“Moni”

You smiled and sniffled, “Hello?” you answered. 

“Are you okay?” He asked and you laughed, tears threatening to fall again. 

“Do you want a lie or the truth?” You replied sarcastically, bringing the cigarette to your lips again.

“Are you smoking?” You looked at your cigarette and then at the phone. 

“I’m sorry.” You mumbled. 

“You promised me you’d stop. You were doing so good!” Namjoon lectured.

“I’m sorry Joonie, I’m going through some shit now and this was the first thing that was there for me.”

“What about me?” He muttered under his breath but you still heard him through the phone.

“I didn’t want to bother you, people already think I’m piggy-backing off you and that I’m corrupting your mind.” Rolling your eyes you inhale another puff.

 “First, put the cigarette out.”

“Bu-”

“Put it out Y/n!” He yelled. 

“Fine.” You smashed the cigarette in the ashtray, “Happy now?”

“Yes, now what do you mean, “corrupting your mind?” 

“They basically said the only Ideal Type and what is considered Beautiful is pale and the rumor going around that you like me is contradicting it and apparently I’m doing some type of fucking witch-craft shit if it’s true. God forbid a Korean likes someone that’s not Korean. Call the fucking president.” You ranted. 

You heard him laugh then get serious.

“You’re an artist, they should judge your art, not the way you look. That is so annoying. I’m sorry you had to deal with that.” He said.

“It’s not your fault, can I come over?” You asked. 

“Chips and soda?”

“And Icecream! You can’t forget icecream!” You screamed, sniffling. 

“Okay and Icecream.  By the way, that rumor is true.” He said quickly before hanging up. 

You looked at the phone, “What rumor..?” You muttered to yourself.

It finally occurred to you what he meant and heat rushed to your cheeks.

Your daughter and son looked at you and Namjoon.

“That’s why you can’t stick to something just because it’s normal. Find yourself. If you like something that isn’t that common don’t change just because people don’t like it either.” Namjoon said to your kids, grabbing your hand and kissing it.

 You looked at your children, “Do whatever you want to do. Don’t limit yourself because your scared of what others may say or think.”

You son came up to your and hugged your legs, “I think your beautiful mommy!” 

Your daughter followed him and held your other hand, “Yeah mommy! And you’re a really good singer oh! and dancer!” She clapped.

You giggled and kissed their heads, “Thank you babies, that means alot coming from you both.”

Namjoon cleared his throat and you looked at him. 

“You too, baby. It means alot coming from you too.” You said leaning over to give him a kiss.

Request- “Hi! If you do hamilcast imagines can you do a Daveed x Reader where the hamilcast ships them together and always tease them and one day during a ham4ham Lin finds a way to make them finally get together?”

Words- 2,174

You laid down on the floor of the recording studio. You’d just recording one of the hardest songs on your new album and decided and break was needed now. Your producer came in to talk to you. 

“Proposal.” he said.

“Shoot.” You open your eyes, but you did take your headphones out. That was enough attention wasn’t it. 

“We should have some guests on this thing. Some featured vocalists.” he explained. 

“If you trying to convince me to have Pitbull on my album, it’s a done deal.” you said. 

Your producer laughed. “Not Pitbul…but a rapper isn’t a bad idea. Know anybody?” 

Your mind wandered to all the friends you had on Broadway, and how that included some from Hamilton. You smiled at your producer. 

“I know a few people.” you said with a smile. 


You wandered up to the Richard Rogers theater. They had just gotten done with their matinee performance, and you were taking a coffee break from recording, so you figured you’d visit. There was a huge crowd outside the door. Some of them recognized you and asked for pictures, which you happily obliged to. You walked up the theater and addressed the guard there. 

“Hi, I’m Y/N L/N? I told Jasmine I was coming.” you said. 

“Y/N!” You heard pounding and then Jasmine emerged on the stairs, her stage makeup still on. Anthony followed behind her with a smile on his face. When she reached you she instantly threw her arms around you. You grinned and hugged her back. 

“It’s so good too see you!” you squealed. Jasmine released you, a huge grin was slapped on her face. “Anthony!” You turned to him and wrapped your arms around him as well.

“Hey Y/N.”  

“C’mon you have people to see!” Jasmine grabbed your arm and pulled you up the stairs. You and Anthony both laughed and followed her. You said hi to all the people you knew and got introduced to some new people. 

“How does she have so much energy?” you murmured to Anthony. 

“I have no idea.” he said back. “We just got off stage, everyone’s so tired, except her. Your like an energy source for her.” 

You and Anthony shared a laugh. The three of you walked up to his dressing room together. 

“I think Daveed’s taking a nap.” Anthony said. He walked in and turned the lights on. “Wake up! Y/N’s here!” he said. You heard a groan, and you and Jasmine walked into the room. Daveed was lying on a couch with a Jefferson pillow under his head. He was wearing jeans but no shirt, and he had definitely been sleeping. Nice. 

You walked over and sat on his back. “Thanks for the welcome wagon David!” you said, purposely mispronouncing his name to piss him off. 

“Haah you’re funny.” He said. 

“I know.” You took a sip of your coffee and got off of him. He stood up and smiled at you. 

“Aw wow, you didn’t have to get me coffee!” he took the white cup out of your hand and started drinking it. 

“No Daveed! That was mine!” You reached for it, but he put it up above his head. He was so tall, there was no way you were getting it. You looked at Anthony, but he just shrugged with a smile on his face and his arm around Jasmine. You glowered and reached for your cup from Daveed. He smiled and kept it out of your reach. You crashed into his chest. He laughed and put your cup down on the small table by the bed. He put his arms around you in a hug, and you rested your on his back. You put your chin on his chest and looked up at him. 

“You’re too tall.” you said. 

He grinned at you. “Can’t help it.” 

There was a soft knock on the door. “Did I hear Y/N’s voice?” You turned to see Lin smiling in the doorway with a smile on his face. 

“Lin!” you shouted. You walked over and hugged him. He spun you around and you giggled. 

“How are you?” He asked once you pulled away. 

“Well, I was great until someone,” You glared at Daveed,” drank all my coffee.” 

“You owe her a new one.” Lin said. 

“Okay.” He turned around and shrugged a Oakland T-shirt on. What a shame. 

“Wait actually?” you asked. He nodded. “Can you escape?” you asked, thinking of the crowd outside. 

“I’ll manage.” he laughed and grabbed his wallet.

“Perfect! I have something to ask you anyway.” you said. Lin, Anthony, and Jasmine all shared looks.

“Really? You’re just taking her from us? She just got here.” Lin said, but he had a smirk on his face. 

“I’m not taking her.” Daveed said. He walked over to you.  “This is taking her.” he said. He bent and down picked you up, slinging you over his shoulder. 

“Oh my god!” you screamed. Daveed ran all the way down the stairs laughing with you on his shoulder.  He set you down in front of the door, and you walked out to get coffee together. 


Lin stood at the top of the stairs, watching you and Daveed walk out together.

“Lin?” Anthony asked with a worried voice. “What are you thinking?” 

Lin fiddled with the ring on his finger. “They really need to get together.” he said. 

“Watcha talking about?” Pippa came around the corner with a smile on her face.  

“Daveed and Y/N?” Jasmine said. 

“Ooooh! Are they dating yet?” she asked sincerely. 

“No.” All three of them said. 

“I mean I can’t tell if they like each other or not, but they seem close don’t they?” Jasmine said. 

“Y/N’s close with everybody.” Renée said suddenly. 

“Jesus christ, this stairwell is becoming a fire hazard.” Chris said. The group piled into the the nearest dressing room, which Oak happened to be sitting in. 

“Great!” Lin clapped his hands together. “Another opinion.” Oak looked up questioningly. “Y/N and Daveed. Ship it or rip it?” 

“Ship it.” Oak said. “I don’t think they’re into each other like that though.” 

“They just don’t realize how cute it would be.” Philippa said. 

“Yes…” Chris warned. “But we should meddle…should we?” 

He looked around at the contemplative faces.  

“We should.” Lin said.


After the madness of getting out of the theater and actually finding a coffee shop, you both stood of to the side waiting for your coffee.

“So what did you have to ask me?” he turned you. 

“Oh!” you said excitedly. “My producer wants a featured artist on my album. He was thinking a rapper. You in?” you asked eagerly. 

“You sure?” 

“What do you mean am I sure? You’re like the best rapper I know.” 

“You don’t know a lot of rappers, Y/N.” he said with a smile. 

“Okay true,” you said “but that doesn’t make you any less good.” You tugged on his arm. “Pleeeassse?” you asked with a puppy dog face. Daveed laughed and looked away from you. 

“Of course.” 

“Yes!” you fist pumped. He laughed at your silliness. His smile was so big and bright. 

“David?” the barista called. Daveed sighed deeply. You couldn’t help it and burst out laughing.


Working with Daveed had brought the two of you a lot closer. Hours in the studio together had really strengthened your friendship…and your growing crush on him. It was hard not to fall for him when his smile could light an entire country, and he laugh was the greatest sound you’d ever heard. You wold go on little coffee runs together always, and he always paid because “I’m in Hamilton, Y/N, I have money.”, which was total bullshit. 

You sat at a desk with your headphones on. Several other people were in the room, but you were privately going over Daveed’s vocals in the song, smiling to yourself. 

Suddenly Daveed was leaning against your desk with a grin. You pulled your headphones of. 

“Icecream?” he raised his eyebrows. You looked over at your manager who was leaning against the wall. You gave her pleading eyes. She sighed and nodded. You grin and got out of the chair. 

You and Daveed walked out of the ice cream shop and decided to walk to Richard Rogers. Daveed needed to be there soon, and you did not want to go back to work yet. You both sat in the couch on eating your ice cream. Jasmine walked in and gave an appraising look to both of you. 

“Y/N, you have chocolate on your face.” she said. 

“What?” You started wiping at your face. 

“Here.” Daveed swipe his thumb on the corner of your mouth. Your breath hitched. 

Just then, Lin walked in. “Just who I wanted to see! Y/N, I need a favor.” 

“Okay?” You raised your eyebrows at him. 

“Daveed too actually!” Lin said, excitedly. “Can you guys do ham4ham tomorrow?” 

“What are we doing?” Daveed asked. 

“Empire State of Mind.” Lin grinned. 

“Okay.” 

“I guess.” 

“Sweet! Just make sure you know the lyrics, You’ll probably do it accapella.” Lin winked and left the room. You gave Daveed a confused look. He just shrugged and ate his ice cream. 


You arrived at the Richard Rogers ridiculously early that morning so that no one would see you coming in and ruin the ham4ham surprise. You took the liberty of sleeping with Daveed’s favorite Jefferson pillow, mostly because it smelled like him. 

You were awoken by an grinning Lin. 

“You’re on in 15, sunshine.” You groaned and pushed his face away. Then you felt a weight on you back. 

“Payback’s a bitch.” Daveed said. You groaned and shoved your face into his Jefferson pillow. “Come one, you can’t tired when you sing.” He got off of you and practically dragged you off the couch. You checked the mirror to make sure you didn’t look tired. You and Daveed ran through the song once. You did some vocal warmups. Lin came in again and announced it was time. 

You were waiting with Daveed on the other side of the stage door. 

“We have a really special guest for you today! She’s about to drop a new album that one of our own is featured on. Y/N and Daveed!” Lin’s voice rang through. He pounded on the door. You and Daveed walked out smiling. The crowd was huge and they were cheering wildly. 

“I SHIP IT!” someone screeched over the crowd. 

“Me too!” Lin said clapping. You gave him an incredulous look. The crowd went absolutely batshit. You covered your face in your hands, and Daveed just laughed. 

Lin had everyone start a beat, and soon Daveed launched into the first verse. He kept looking at you with a smile in his eyes, and you couldn’t help but smile back. 

“Tell by my attitude that I’m most definitely from…” 

You closed your eyes and sand out. “New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of.” 

You opened your eyes saw Daveed staring at you, a different kind of smile was one his face. Not the one he used when he was laughing. You never knew what this smile meant, but it always made you melt. You kept singing and glanced over at Lin. He was jamming. You finished your verse with a laugh at the way he was dancing, and Daveed launched into the second verse. The crowd was absolutely loving it. Daveed turned to you and started walking closer. You grinned and sang the refrain right back to him. He smiled and turned back to the crowd for the third verse but he was very close now. 

“Anna Wintour gets cold,” he looked over at you, with a smirk. “in Vogue with your skin out. “ He brought his face close to yours. “Good girls gone bad, this city’s filled with them.” Daveed looked you up and down like he was checking you out. The last verse was before you knew it. You quickly turned back to the crowd and belted the refrain. You closed your eyes and smiled as you sang. This was what you loved to do. You chanced a glance at Daveed. He was entraced by your singing. You turned and sand the bridge right to him.

“Street, light, big dreams, all lookin’ pretty. No place in the world that could compare…” 

You were becoming more and more focused on Daveed. By the time you finished the song, you’d completely forgotten there was a massive crowd watching you. You were breathing heavily, adrenaline was rushing through your body. Daveed stared at you. Everything else disappeared. 

He closed the distance between you. Your hands went to his face and you pushed your body against him. Your lips collided sending spark through every part of your being. The crowd became nothing but a dull roar. You kissed Daveed until you had to pull away to breathe. You looked out to crowd and blushed. 

“Well…good luck with the lotto I guess.” You heard Lin say. Daveed took your hand and led you back inside with a grin on his face.

lovelyrhink’s top headcanons

anonymous asked:

I wonder how many true louies there are actually still in this fandom and how many are still calling themselves that while in reality having actually moved on but refuse to admit it (either to themselves or to others, or both) out loud.. seems like a rapidly growing number if you ask me 💔

I would agree, anon.

I usually try not to fall into the true v. fake fan argument, but I cannot comprehend being a fan of an artist—an engaged fan who claims to love them—and not wanting the best for them.

I really don’t understand how anyone calling themselves a louie right now can be OK with his (past and) present situation. Even if you, personally, were happy with what you are getting as a fan, wouldn’t you want better for him? Unless you think he chose this and is happy about how his career is being managed— and that includes the stunts, because these have always been and continue to be deeply tangled up with his career, as well. And, if you’ve been listening to him, how can you think that? He’s literally said out loud that his fans do a better job at promoting him than his team; said his fans were great when Nick told him that they had been begging him to focus on his music and not his ‘personal life’. And that’s not even getting into all of Louis’ big and small acts of defiance and attempts to communicate his discomfort, frustration, and sadness with his situation, which he has kept on with in spite of being punished for them time and time again.

All I can conclude is that these are people who call themselves fans but don’t really care all that much; they’re looking for a bit of entertainment and that’s all—which, fair enough, but why attack those who want better for him? And, really, what kind of fan are you that would get offended at anyone wanting better for him? And not preferential treatment, just fair treatment.

Or, as you say, there are people who aren’t any type of fan at all, either never were or aren’t any more. At most Louis is an afterthought to them, and they want to focus on what or who really matters to them. Again, fair enough, but why go after those for whom Louis is what matters most?

I would hazard a guess as to why: it distracts from the positive bubble of fun, threatens headcanons, and in calling attention to certain disparities raises uncomfortable questions.

And of course this has been encouraged and led by the actions of 1DHQ and its reincarnations, with a bigger push in recent times, through their belittlement and erasure of Louis as a person and an artist, and active efforts to alienate and exhaust his fanbase through stunts (that growing indifference or resentment toward him for how boring/tiresome/annoying they are is painfully obvious…) and the push and pull of hope and disappointment that leads people to stop trying to support him. All this alongside the elevation of others and the attempts to provide for these fans’ core wants at their chosen source, rendering Louis a prop or an accessory. You’re not going to complain about the appetizers being a bit lacking when you’ve got a full course meal in front of you.

So here we are, anon. A very unfair and sad situation all around… “Loyalty number one.” as you can see. :( Louis deserves better. 

A Rant on Representation

Ok so I saw Indecent on Broadway tonight and it was an incredibly moving show, that made a ton of good points on what it meant to be a Jewish artist in the 20th century and the hoops you had to jump through. (See tags for more on this)
However
It’s based on a true story of this play called God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch, about a prostitute and a brothel owners daughter who fall in love. (The whole cast got arrested for putting on an indecent show it was nuts).
And there’s this scene between Lemml the Stage Manager of God of Vengeance and Eugene O'Neil where they’re talking about the indecency trial and Eugene is going on about how much of a dark place the world is and he says “and those two girls… are like a lighthouse” (or something similar) and I just… broke.
Y'all
I’ve never heard anyone say anything like that before, and for someone who’s sexuality is to a lot of people, just a category of porn? To see love between two girls called a lighthouse in a dark world? It was so intensely moving and it ultimately made me cry and I just can’t believe this show got extended to a point where I would be able to see it because I am just… so moved.

[Masterlist]


The bookstore has always been my favorite place to spend a huge chunk of time. It’s relaxing and it’s also where I met my husband, Namjoon.

We were in the same section browsing the opposite ends of the non-fiction alphabets. The space was small so once we both reached the center of the bookcase we had to shimmy by each other. Shorty after, I ended up wanting a book from the top half of the shelf that I had to overstretch myself and still couldn’t reach until Namjoon handed me the same book he had been holding and got another one for himself easily, due to his height. We ended up going out for coffee to talk about the book we both ended up getting.

When Moni was born Namjoon read to him every night whenever he was home. He would lay Moni on his chest in the rocking chair of the nursery and read different types of books. As Moni got older he liked looking at the photos in the books until he learned how to read then he started reading more and more.

As soon as we enter the bookstore, Moni goes straight for the children’s sections. Namjoon and I go our separate ways into the store. A few minutes go by as I wonder around each sections of genre. I finally find a book that sparks my interest but it’s on the top shelf. I extend my hand to see if I even have a chance at reaching it. To my dismay, my fingertips only reach the bottom of the book, not enough to slide it out.

Suddenly, someone is pushing into my back to reach up for that same book, “Ma'am, you have really good taste in books.”

Gah, I love writing for Yixing, thank you for sending in this request! I hope you like it, lovely anon! 😊 PS: Happy 11/11! I hope all of your wishes come true today!


The moment you make eye contact with him, you know you’re screwed.

You’d screamed for about ten minutes straight with excitement when you got the job as the lead make up artist for EXO. But it never occurred to you how it might affect your personal life to work so closely with such kind, talented, and attractive men.

Yoongi Scenario: It Will Rain.

Request: First of all i really love your blog, girls!💕 Second, some drama with superstar Namjoon Yoongi! Maybe, inspired by It will rain - Bruno Mars(???)

Genre: Romance / Drama


Yoongi was brushing his teeth thoughtfully when you entered the bathroom without him noticing you, it was around nine in the morning and he had just woken up after falling asleep around four am, he seemed to be more into his thoughts than groggy as he had his eyes full opened but his attention wasn’t on his surroundings, so you sneaked on him, pinching his waist and making him jump.

-Ouch- his voice was still raspy and more so having the brush in his mouth, so after being done with it he turned to discover you sitting at the edge of the bathtub, you had an apple on your hand with already a few bites on it, a playful smile on your face.

-Morning- you said, your smiling getting wider as he walked to you.

-Are we this mischievous so early?- he leaned down, bumping your foreheads together. -Morning- Yoongi kissed your lips, your smile making him do so as well even when he was kissing you. -Tasty- he muttered as he could feel the flavor of the apple in his mouth. 

-I thought you’d sleep more today babe, it’s your free day- you said taking another bite of the apple. 

He shrugged. -I’ll spend it with you, I want to show you a couple of songs actually, I want to eat something first though and I…- Yoongi looked down at you, he hadn’t paid much attention to your clothes but he saw you were fully dressed, jeans, black boots and a plaid shirt, you were pretty as always but since it was his free day in ages Yoongi expected you would actually be wearing your pajamas or your underwear. 

-Yoongi…- you muttered making him give you a puzzled look.

-Are we going somewhere?- he asked getting out of the bathroom making you follow him back to the bed room. He sat on the edge of the bed and looked at you once again, waiting for your answer, Yoongi had dark circles under his eyes and his hair was disheveled, he was in only his boxers and a white t-shirt, but you still found him handsome, you would find him attractive no matter what he was doing, it was something beyond looks what you liked about him. -Y/N?- he pushed. 

You went to him, getting between his legs where he received you and waited for your answer. -I’ll be going to my parent’s house for the day, you know I have a lot of time without seeing them and also my mother is going to make a stew or a special dinner of some sort, I’ve told you how she is when she makes these things and also…-

-Y/N- he cut briskly. -They are your parents, you don’t have to make excuses to go and see them-
