pretty pretty please oh pleaase will you do a post about sunggyu as in what's so great about him, just because i want one after the great job you did on Woohyun :D
Okay so my Woohyun post was liked by people, that’s always nice to hear! I hope the anon who sent in the original ask starts to see Woohyun in a different light from now on ~~
I guess I can talk about Sunggyu too, but where to begin?
1. HIS UNIQUE VOICE / EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION
Sunggyu’s voice is one that is instantly recognisable. He can be a soft falsetto, he can be a heart-wrenching high note. He is as versatile a vocal as Woohyun is, and can lend his voice to many different genres of music. He has proven himself a stronglive vocalist too (remember that time the music stopped during a live and he just carried on singing, totally unfazed?). One of my favourite performances of his was on Yu Huiyeol’s Sketchbook in 2015, where he sang Nell’s Time Spent Walking Through Memories and his own title track Kontrol.
Sunggyu has one of those voices that really makes you feel things, you know? He is able to project some real emotion into his vocals, and every single song on his second solo album 27 just hits you with it. One of my fave things is when Sunggyu sings songs with softer, quieter parts that then reach an inevitable crescendo where he showcases the true power of his voice. A good example of that is this performance of Only Tears. Then there is this incredible duet he did on Duet Song Festival which just gets me every single time. I could probably go on about Sunggyu’s voice forever. But here is a compilation of his head notes, falsettos and long notes on Immortal Songs 2.
2. LEADER GYU
Not only is Sunggyu an amazing leader for INFINITE in the sense that he pushes them to succeed and leads with a firm hand, he is also known to counsel the other members if they need advice. For Sungyeol and Sungjong’s birthdays last year, he went out while they were in Japan to get them gifts as he didn’t want them to miss out just because they weren’t at home. In INFINITE Showtime episode 10, Sungjong thanked Sunggyu for helping him out and listening when he has worries and concerns. The INFINITE members are close enough to Sunggyu that they can absolutely roast him on tv shows, knowing that its a joke. Back when they all lived together in a dorm, Sunggyu would wake up the members, and that is seriously the cutest thing ever, just watch it (like, yeah okay so he wrestles Woohyun, but he was being a little brat! And the spraying Sungjong was totally Nam’s idea soooo…).
He is also currently MCing a new show called Singderella alongside Super Junior’s Heechul, and it already looks to be pretty hilarious. You can easily find clips on Youtube ~
4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE:
So above were three main points about Sunggyu as an idol, as the leader of INFINITE, as a singer. Here are some more important things:
Sunggyu has made multiple appearances in musicals, showing his vocal versatility as well as his acting skills. He has had main roles in Gwanghwamun Sonata (alongside Super Junior’s Kyuhyun), Vampire, In The Heights (with fellow member Dongwoo) and All Shook Up.
His friendships with other idols. Sunggyu is known to be close with numerous other idols, most notably Super Junior’s Heechul and Kyuhyun, SHINee’s Minho and (former) Beast’s Junghyun. He even appeared on Junghyun’s FB Live broadcast a few months ago in the Beast member’s new studio.
His love of Nell. He is known to be a huuuuuge Nell fanboy, actually going so far as to say he only auditioned for Woollim because Nell were part of the company at that time. He reached peak fanboy when Nell’s Kim Jongwan produced his second solo album 27 and featured on a track with Epik High’s Tablo.
His undeniable good looks… So many people may be critical of Sunggyu’s small eyes, but it has to be said that he has amazingly good visuals. That jawline, those hands… I could go on, but you get the idea.
It’s strange but in a weird way, I miss my darkness… you know what I mean, the indifferent sadness that you resign yourself to when you’re completely and totally hopeless, when you no longer see a reason to try anymore so you kinda just shuffle along day after day, when nothing really matters because you don’t plan on living for much longer. Things that once ate away at you no long strike fear or anxiety into your heart cause “once I’m dead none of it’ll matter.” I’m told it’s fucked up to say because “Some people are dying to feel any other way! HOW DARE YOU WANT THAT BACK!!” Look at it from my point of view: when I didn’t have any purpose or motivation to exist, there was no stress about work, or school, or anything else; every problem just slipped away with my will to live. I could simply sink down into the darkness and embrace the silence. It’s different now that I’ve been “trying"again… It’s so much harder than before. It’s so fucking bright and loud!! but this time you’re not allowed to just walk away and cave in on yourself! You have to accept and acknowledge everything! And no matter how hard you try, you can no longer channel the familiar sanctuary that you’ve grown so accustomed to! You feel as though you don’t belong there, with the normal people, at all. After you’ve lived with the darkness for so long, can you ever truly return to the light? or will it always have those pieces of you, the ones that it took in the first place?
Thoughts I’ll never speak out loud.
(Sorry it’s so long, I’m awful at describing things so it takes me a while to do it)
Sleepy yuri on his boyfriend’s shoulder ❤️I meant to post this last week but it took forever to get the colours right. Literally, coloring this piece nearly killed me. Idk why it was so difficult and I’m still not fully happy with it but wtv lol.

“Mmm, ugh, god,” Killua moaned, eyes fluttering shut as blue irises rolled to the back of his head.
Gon tilted his head to the side with a grin. “Do you like that?”
Killua cracked one eye open. “Don’t ask stupid questions, Gon. Gimme another piece.”
Laughing, Gon did as he was told. He cut out a nicely sized chunk of chocolate cake that was sitting on the table in between them and lifted the fork up to Killua’s lips. Killua opened his mouth obediently. The second Gon passed the cake into his mouth, Killua’s whole body sagged. The expression of pure euphoria on his face made Gon giggle.
“So, this wasn’t a waste of money at all, then,” he couldn’t help but tease.
Killua didn’t even bother to open his eyes this time. Instead he just groaned, “It’s so freaking good. How do they make chocolate taste so delicious? I feel like I’m in heaven….”
Gon’s smile grew. He and Killua had passed an expensive chocolate shop on the way back from the restaurant about an hour ago. The cake on display was supposed to be made of chocolate from the finest countries around the world, layered with dark fudge and rich mousse. Killua had stared at it hungrily for nearly five minutes before Gon finally tugged him inside the store. He’d bought the cake without a sparing a moment to think.
The cake had been expensive, sure. They didn’t need it either after that dinner Gon had treated Killua to.
But the look on Killua’s face after trying that first bite of cate- the blissful way his lips curved upwards as Gon fed him, how those thick lashes fluttered and his pink tongue flickered out to lick away any trace of remaining chocolate…
Gon’s heart skipped a beat and his toes curled.
Killua’s happiness was priceless. And in the end that was the only thing that mattered.
Pairing: Kim Taehyung x Reader Rating: Explicit Genre: Domestic Tae smuuuuut Word count: Not enough 1,891
Summary: Taehyung is completely enraptured by the way the light makes your skin glow and can’t resist the urge the feel the beauty of it against his fingertips.
A/N: FOR MY LOVE @taechulo WHO I PROMISED TO WRITE THIS FOR LIKE FOREVER AGO <333333 Okay but smut is hard for me??? Idk why??? So I’m sorry if this isn’t super fab ;u; I also very briefly edited this cause I’m lazy (psst there’s probably a lot of grammar errors oh well)
When dawn first peeked through the blinds, blanketing you in a golden hue, he fought back the urge to reach out and touch you for Taehyung wanted nothing more than to feel the warmth of your skin beneath his palm. It took a lot of self-control, but he refrained from doing so - you needed your rest; the night prior had been long and rigorous, fuelled by too much wine and desire. But the longer he looked you over; completely mesmerised by the way you glowed as though you were a deity, the more Taehyung couldn’t resist the urge any longer and allowed his hand to find purchase on your shoulder.
He had started off just ghosting the pads of his fingers along the length of your upper arm, slow and gentle, then carrying on to the remaining parts still left untouched. A shiver crawls up your spine every time his nails scratch the smooth expanse of your bare waist while his fingers trace your curves. It causes small bumps to litter your flesh, accompanied by a soft whine and the flutter of your lashes and he holds his breath, stills his movements and smiles in silent amusement when you do not wake.

The beginning of a little series of drawings picturing characters from different stories who (in my opinion) have a lot in common. Why not to start with two of them from my forever favourite manga and book?
I’ve always thought Kureno and Tom were alike, since I read Fire and Hemlock for the first time. Their spoilerly situations are partly explained by this pic, but their personalities also seem to me similar: calm, mysterious, intellectual (?) and a little sad guys with kind hearts. I love them both <3
You are such a great artist omg! I found you through that thanksgiving Tweek comic (so cute btw), may a request a jealous Craig?
Thank you, friend~! I’m glad you found me~ idk why that particular comic was so popular with everyone lol. But, it’s about to have more notes than the silly anniversary post I did, so I’m happy regardless~
And let me think about this—YES ABSOLUTELY YOU CAN!
Sorry this took so much time! I probably took longer than I should have on certain panels ^^’ (if second panel gif doesn’t work, try this)
