can you tell me about the bts ships? not just otp's, brotps too!
YESSsssSSS I CAN TALK ABOUT BTS SHIPS ALL DAY FAM
but ill only talk about the ones im familiar with:
1. YOONMIN (yoongi/jimin):
ok holy shit where the FUCK do i start with yoonmin. they’ve been my bts otp since day 1 so i have a LOT TO FUCKING SAY LOL
first off, refer to this post as to why i started shipping them, they have a LOT of cute fucking moments predebut and its been a painfully beautiful journey ever since 2013
before we jump in we need to talk about how YOONGI WROTE A SONG FOR JIMIN BECAUSE HE ADMIRES HOW HARDWORKING JIMIN IS. IF THAT AINT REAL THEN GET TF OUT OF MY FACE LMAo like where dat song @ tho yoongs
ok i need to chill, but theres more:
like jimin being yoongi’s #1 cheerleader at ISAC lmao look at him cheer his name in front of all the fans and other idols with ZERO shame, and then there’s yoongi pretending like he doesnt hear him #typical
^ TYPICAL YOONGI. this ship is very love-hate. mostly false pretense of hate on yoongi’s end and WAAAY TOO MUCH SHAMELESS LOVIN on jimin’s end BUT we all know yoongi’s putting up a front. like there’s actually so many subtle moments where he reveals how much he cares for jimin and they kill me every time, like this one:
but then right back to pretending like he dont give a fuck lmfao:
ALSO THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST LEGENDARY YOONMIN MOMENTS, THE “YOU KNOW. I KNOW.” MOMENT (explanation here) :
this whole v app broadcast was a yoonmin fest and it was a blessing. jimin got him a sweater for yoongis birthday and they basically confessed on live broadcast that they’re soulmates. ugh im so sensitive about this moment
yoonmin are polar opposites and that heart-pulling cold/warm dynamic they have is super shippable, thus the reason why they’re one of the most popular ships in this fandom
yoongi puts on a cold exterior and doesn’t really show his emotions. jimin on the other hand is super openly loving towards others, especially yoongi, and its really fucking cute how yoongi reciprocates sometimes
Dear lord, that took me ages just for a screen video @__@
This is one out of two specials that was included on the first ACCA DVD (yes I pre-ordered the other ones as well and I’m planning to upload the other specials with release in June (?) and August (?). As far as I know at least one special will be with Mauve/Grossular
Aaand in a following post I’m going to upload the one with Lotta and Jean :)
But for now: Let’s listen to Jean and Nino’s conversation while drinking (too much beer you guys…)
Would you buy a car or an apartment from Craigslist?
Okay. So I know it took me forever. But…
Craigslist Buying 101
1. Pictures. Pictures are so important! Please disregard any post on Craigslist that does not have images of the exact product that you’re going to be purchasing. Not a similar product- the exact product! This applies to:
It’s so easy to upload photos to the internet in this day and age, if the poster did not upload photos, they had a reason for it. Please do not involve yourself with sketchy people. There’s actually an option to filter out any posts without pictures in them on the Craigslist sidebar.
2. Professional. Disregard any posts with spelling errors and obvious grammatical errors. Any person who does not check their post for stupid errors is not worth your time. They’re trying to sell something to you- do they not care about the sale???
3. Information. The more information posted- the better. Theoretically you should be able to read an apartment posting on Craigslist and know the monthly rent, what utilities (if any) are included, the pet policy, etc. If the person literally did not write any information on the post other than a stupid one-liner like “great apartment for students” then skip skip skip.
4. Phone conversation. Has everything checked out? Ask to speak to the person over the phone to set up an appointment to go see whatever you’re looking to purchase. Do not agree to meet up with someone over email or text, you need to actually hear them talk before going anywhere. Know that they’re who they say they are! If they refuse to talk to you over the phone, RUN.
5. “Student”. In my personal experience, it’s better to avoid dealings with anyone who stresses the fact that you’re “young” or a “student”. Why should it matter what you’re age is? Many people will think that just because you’re young that you will automatically have low self confidence and be easy to push around. I hate these people.
6. Bring a friend. This is the most important rule of Craigslist buying- always bring backup. The more- the merrier. Here are some examples of who you can bring:
That one Uncle who is super hairy
Your co-worker Loris
Your elderly neighbor who can’t hear well
Your D&D squad
Literally anyone you trust
Never agree to meet a stranger by yourself, and always let the person you’re meeting know that you’re bringing your posse. They should not have a problem with this.
7. Check it out. When you arrive at the agreed upon location with your posse, make sure to fully check out whatever you’re looking to purchase. I have another post about checking out potential apartments, but here’s what I’d look for in a potential car:
Ask the seller to meet you at a local car repair shop. Either they or you can set up an inspection, but make sure that you are both there to hear the results. This guarantees that the car is road safe. There is no other way to guarantee that the car is not a lemon, a professional needs to do an assessment. Do not buy the car until a mechanic puts on an inspection sticker.
If the mechanic suggests that anything needs to be fixed on the car, the seller should pay for the repairs of give you a discount.
Ask the mechanic to raise the car so that you can check for rust.
Open all the compartments in the car.
Check out any seat or upholstery damage.
Does the radio/CD player work? How will you play your tunes?
Do the windows roll up and down?
Does the heat/AC work?
Does the defogger/defroster work?
Does the horn work?
Do the windshield wipers need to be repaired?
Ask what type of tires the car has. Are they all-weather? Will the car need snow tires?
When was the last time the car’s oil was changed?
Are the headlights bright?
Do the lights inside the car work?
Are their heated seats? Do they work?
If it’s a convertible- does the top open smoothly?
Are there any dents visible on the inside our outside?
Is there any rust?
Are you going to be given a discount if there is?
Does it come with license plates or will you need to buy your own?
Ask to test drive the car. Test breaks, acceleration, etc.
8. Price. The price for said item should not have changed at all now that you’re there in person. If it has, decline to do business. Remember to stand your ground! Loris will help you.
And finally- if you are buying a car, please read your state’s DMV’s page on the required forms. Here is the one for NY.
AAAAH MY LAPTOP IS AT 6% BUT HC WHERE MC HAS DARK SKIN AND IS SUPER INSECURE ABOUT IT (TOTALLY NOT SELF INSERTING T_T... I SWEAR)
I really hope these are ok and you honestly shouldn’t have to be insecure because you are perfect and beautiful just the way you are <3
Sorry it took so long too- I wrote them all and then whilst on holiday i had wifi for a bit and tried to upload it only… I caught the delete button and had to start again. I legit cried ~H
RFA with insecure, dark skinned MC
-He never actually noticed that you were insecure about it for ages -Your skin colour didn’t affect him one bit- he loved you for your kind words and encouragement -The fact that it was obvious that Yoosung didn’t mind really helped you to feel more confident about it -Yoosung made you feel like you mattered -And you loved him for it -However, one time you were over at Yoosung’s house playing LOLOL with his guild members -Yoosung had the microphone on so the two of you were chatting with the rest of his guild -When one of the players made a suggestion -“Hey, SupermanYoosung, turn the video camera on so that we can see you and your girlfriend.” -You immediately panic a little but then tell yourself to calm down -Yoosung never bothered- maybe they won’t -So Yoosung turns on the camera and says hi to his friends -You say hi too -Until one of them says, “Yoosung, you never told us your girlfriend was black!” -You already know where this is going and you hate it -“Well, it’s not something that matters, is it?” he responds -“It kind of does. You’ve gotta be careful with some people, y’know?” -You don’t mention how hurt you are -But you’re pretty sure Yoosung notices the tears in your eye before you turn your face away from the screen -He notices an empty crisp packet next to the computer screen and gets an idea -“Oh, sorry, I think there’s something wrong with my computer. I can’t hear you. We’re breaking up,” he says, rustling the packet near the mic -“Sorry, we’re gonna log off now.” -And he does, immediately turning to you -“MC, I’m so sorry! They were so horrible to you. I should never have agreed to video call. Please forgive me.” -You have to convince him that’s it not his fault and tell him you’ve always been insecure about it -“But why? You’re beautiful. You have no reason to be. It’s jerks like them that are the problem.” -He’s so nice you love him so much -Yoosung promises to change guilds because of them -That’s honestly like a marriage proposal from him -And he makes sure you never feel insecure when you’re with him by constantly telling you how beautiful you are
-So he already knew it was something you were kind of insecure about -But Zen constantly showered you with compliments about how beautiful you were -And if the most handsome man on the planet thinks you’re beautiful -Then you must be, right? -Thanks to Zen’s compliments he has a praise kink, ok? you’d started to feel a little better about your skin colour -Until the fan mail came -Zen usually shared his fan mail openly with you -So when he hid this letter -You knew something was up -Whilst Zen was at rehearsal, you found the letter and read it -Zenny babe I love you so much, I’m your biggest fan! I must say that you have a horrible girlfriend, though. She’s black! An actor like you should be with a skinny, blonde, white girl, not someone like her! You should date a fan instead. We’re totally gorgeous and would be loads better for your image -You’d read enough -Immediately tears started to pour down your face and you dropped the letter to the floor -Only twenty minutes later, Zen returned from practice and found you in this state. -“You read the letter, didn’t you?” he realised, immediately rushing over to you and wrapping his arms around you. -Zen rocked you gently as you nodded -“Ignore them, ok? They’re prejudiced snobs who are just jealous of how beautiful you are and that I’m so in love with you,” Zen said. -You told him that you knew you’d hear this kind of thing and that you were really bad for Zen’s image -Zen quickly shut that idea down -“Nonsense, babe. You’re perfect for me. And if I had to choose between you and my image, I’d choose you every time,” he promised. -You managed to laugh a bit -“Thanks, Zen. I love you.” -“I love you too, babe. You’re perfect, ok?” -He did always know how to make you feel better -And finishing it off with a deep kiss was also something he was very good at
-You were really nervous about working in Jaehee’s cafe at first -You’d always been super conscious of your skin colour and how that would come across to people -When you finally decided to raise this concern with your girlfriend, Jaehee looked at you in a confused way. -“MC, your skin colour makes no difference to who you are as a person. I need you to work for me. Please,” she begged. -So you agreed -But you couldn’t help but notice that people always went to Jaehee if both of you were free to serve -If Jaehee noticed, she’d always make sure to reassure you afterwards -Because you’re beautiful -But one day it happened -Jaehee was busy serving someone when a man walked in -You smiled and greeted him like usual -“Hi sir, can I take your order?” -“No thanks. I’ll wait for the white girl. Black people like you shouldn’t even be working in a public place,” he snapped back. -You just stand in shock as tears start to well in your eyes -This is what you had feared -But Baehee is to the rescue -She just finished with her customer and heard what the man had to say about you -“Excuse me, but I’d be very grateful if you’d please leave our café. I’m afraid we don’t serve people who insult our employees because of a prejudice they may hold against a beautiful, talented girl,” Jaehee said as composed as ever. -You couldn’t help but grin and kiss her cheek as a quick thank you -You’ll definitely thank her properly later -“And she’s gay too! What is the world coming to,” the man huffed before walking out. -“MC, I’m so sorry. The things he said were disgusting,” Jaehee apologised. -“This is why I didn’t want to work in the shop. I’ll ruin your business,” you sobbed. -“That’s ridiculous. Just because some people in the world are horribly prejudice and rude doesn’t mean that you’re any different from anyone else,” Jaehee convinced you. -You can’t stay upset when Jaehee’s looking at you like that. -“I love you, you know?” she told you. -You nod and kiss her properly this time -Whilst a customer clears their throat
-As someone surrounded by the kind of people to be racist all the time, Jumin was very understanding as to why you’d be insecure -He personally thought that it was ridiculous for a skin colour to define you -And the way he acted so naturally around you when you arrived at his apartment made you feel a bit better -However, you hadn’t even found time to tell Jumin that you were insecure before Sarah barged in -Literally -She started with her false claims of having found Elizabeth the 3rd -So you said something, noticing Jumin’s discomfort -“That’s obviously not Jumin’s cat and if you knew him better, that would be obvious. Please don’t be so rude as to waste his time like this.” -Her eyes grew wide when she saw you. -“Jumin. Who is this black woman?” -You already know where this is headed -“She’s a very good friend of mine. Do you have a problem?” Jumin responded calmly. -“Jumin! You’re meant to be my fiancé. Of course, I don’t mind you having flings- I understand- but with someone like that?” Sarah scoffed. -“What is that supposed to mean? MC is a very nice person. I can’t see why I wouldn’t want her here in my house,” Jumin smiled at you. -You were so grateful that Jumin was actively defending you -“She’s black! All black people are either dangerous or too dumb to understand anyone,” Sarah said, folding her arms. -You couldn’t hold back the tears that were forming -And if Jumin hadn’t been before, the second he saw your tears -He was mad -“Leave my house now. Not only have you brought me false information but you have insulted one of the most important people in my life beyond reason. I refuse to have anyone as close minded in my penthouse,” Jumin snapped. -“You can’t do that!” Sarah tried to protest -But he could -And he did -Security guards dragged her out as Jumin turned to you -He slowly stepped towards you and wiped your tears gently -“I’m so sorry she said such horrible things to you. Someone as incredible as you could never deserve it. It was vile,” he said. -“That’s not the first time it’s happened,” you whispered. -Jumin’s eyes flared -“If anyone does it again I will personally ensure that they become jobless or bankrupt.” -Before you could even say anything else, Jumin connected his lips to yours -You knew from that day on that you were in love with this man
-Ha, he sure knows about being insecure -The only thing is, he doesn’t know why you’d be insecure -“MC, you’re amazing. Why would you hate anything about yourself?” -You tell him it’s because people used to tease you all the time in school -He promises you that they were just being idiotic kids and you’re beautiful and perfect the way you are -And it makes you smile -He always makes you smile -But one day you needed more PhD Pepper -And shopping is always more fun with two people -So the two of you go to the store -Only to meet a rowdy drunk outside the store -Seven pulls you in closer by the waist just in case -The drunk spots the two of you and hollers -“Ayyy look at the black girl thinkin’ she can get a white man. Keep dreamin’, hun, you don’t deserve any rights.” -You are beyond offended -But not as offended as Seven is for you -“Quick, MC,” he said, dragging you into the store -He pulled you into a corner and got out his phone -“Saeyoung, no!” you whispered, not wanting to ruin someone’s life just because they’re prejudiced -“Too late,” Seven smirks after tapping some quick code into his phone -You don’t even want to ask what he did -But you do anyway -“Hacked all his social media, texted his mother and maybe added a lovely virus.” -You smack his arm -“You can’t do that,” you told him -“Just did,” he smiled, taking your hand and dragging you to get PhD Pepper -When you get home, he barely lets you walk into the door before he speaks -“MC, no-one says that to you on my watch. I won’t let them tear such a beautiful and talented person down like that without ruining their life. I love you so much. Never let them get to you.” He grabbed your shoulders to tell you. -You feel like crying, both from what the man said and from Seven’s sweet words -Instead, you just kiss him and he kisses back passionately -He wants to prove that love to you ;) -I need to stop
-He wasn’t even aware that was a thing people were judged for -“It’s just a colour. Why does it matter?” -Whilst you’re sad that he doesn’t understand your self-consciousness -You’re glad he thinks it doesn’t matter -Bc it doesn’t, guys, you’re perfect whether you’re brown, white, blue or pink (I’m looking at you Lars) -It does mean that both of you don’t really like leaving the house, though -So usually you don’t -But Saeran really wants ice cream one day -And who are you to deny your man ice cream? -So you go down to the ice cream place -Saeran orders mint choice chip and you order vanilla -You’re heading out of the door when some guy yells -“You can eat as much vanilla as you want but you’re always gonna be black. Maybe you should just get out of our country instead.” -Opting to ignore it, you grit your teeth and reach for Saeran’s hand -Only it’s not there -Instead, Saeran had grabbed the man’s shirt and had him pinned up against the wall, giving him an intimidating death glare -“Say anything like that to my girlfriend again and you’ll never walk or speak again,” he seethed. -You want to protest -But he looks so hot -“Of course you two freaks are dating. You’re perfect for each other,” the man laughed -So Saeran punched him -Hard -“Yeah. We are perfect, thanks,” he hissed, walking back over to you as the man fell to the floor, clutching his bleeding, broken nose. -“Saeran, you shouldn’t have done that,” you started to say but he raised an eyebrow. -“Ok, fine, thanks for defending me. You looked hot,” you admitted with a blush -“I dropped my ice cream,” Saeran pointed out to you. -With a roll of your eyes yet a smile, knowing your boyfriend has your back, you take his hand and lead him back inside -He’s such a sweetie, though- he just wants ice cream and MC
-V was at an art gallery, selling his photos -And as the supportive girlfriend that you were, you went along with him -After talking to so many people, he was beginning to get thirsty -So he asked if you could go and get drinks for the both of you -Whilst you were gone, a woman approached V to ask about a photo he’d taken of a lake -You returned with pink lemonade for V and water for yourself -V is totally into pastel drinks -“Here you go, hun,” you smiled as you passed him the drink. -“Thank you, my dear,” V responded, kissing your cheek. -“You have a black girlfriend? As an incredible photographer, don’t you think you should have a white one. You’d be able to take nice photos of them, then,” the woman said snarkily. -That stung -V was such a calm person that you didn’t even know he could get mad -Boy were you wrong -“I beg your pardon, but you have just insulted not only a very beautiful and lovely woman, but the love of my life who has been the inspiration and passion behind so many of my photos. I will not tolerate someone like you with prejudiced views to belittle and berate her because of something beautiful that she was born with and that makes her no different from anyone else. I must ask you to leave my exhibition if you can’t refrain from insulting my girlfriend beyond justification,” V snapped. -His tone was so harsh yet so cool and calm that it made you terrified -But you were so happy that he would say something like that for you -“It was just a comment,” the woman huffed before turning on her heel and walking out, much to your relief. -V immediately turned around and hugged you -“You are the most precious thing to me and the most important thing in my life. I won’t allow anyone to put you down like that again. Your skin colour makes no difference to who you are. If anything, it makes you more perfect. Please, never be ashamed of it. You are beautiful and flawless.” -Honestly, how could you be sad when this man is saying things so nice they’d make anyone swoon -Someone buy me twenty of him -Don’t actually buy him- that’s prostitution
josephine!! i can never be bothered to draw characters in their actual outfits, apparently
(i can’t figure out how to make tumblr not wash the colours out… does it just do that to all pictures? is this something everyone just deals with and i’m imagining it being worse than it is? who knows)
