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)
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.
okay but for real, why do you think seokmin is slept on?
honestly…i have no idea. i really want to know the answer to that too :(
idk how he gets slept on because first of all he’s handsome af. like have you seen his visuals? i mean all of svt are visuals but seokmin is like…really up there in terms of visuals
LOOK AT THAT JAWLINE. HIS NOSE HIS EYES HIS EYES HIS EVERYTHING. HE WAS SCULPTED BY THE GREEK GODS THEMSELVES
Second of all his vocals are no joke. like the boi can hit them high notes with so much ease and he’s soooo stable. i have never heard him go off key when he sings live. and any time he does those…idk what they’re called but you know in adore u when he first comes in and he does that growl thingy? that? yeah so good. bless jerah for this video
and this cover is so beautiful it made me love him even more
and it was so good that he ended up doing a duet with the og singer of that song and the new song was beautiful too?? like i was floored?? im crying the amount of emotions and his voice just gets me weeping on the floor ;_____;
third of all his stage presence is no joke. like he may be silly and goofy off stage but damn this boi can kill just by looking at you
fourth of all he’s so funny?? like he does all these stupid gags and sacrifices his image just to help bring up the mood and even tho he has that image i still love him for it? also since sometimes he is a bit shy it helps that soonyoung will be there to help encourage him and reassure him that he is funny and that he is important and i just- (reasons why i love seoksoon but thats a rant for another day)
reason no 5: he’s really actually very soft and caring despite his silly image. like on svt project how he cried when the judges only praised seungkwan’s voice but not his. the best (or worst? idk) part is that he wasn’t even crying because he was jealous or angry at seungkwan. no he was crying cause he thought that he was the one lacking and that he had to step it up himself. like…where else can you find such a sweet boy ;___; he’s seriously so sweet and he’s always thinking about the others and how to improve himself and sometimes i wish he would realize that we love him the way he is now (not that self improvement is a bad thing) but i do think he underestimates his abilities sometimes and it makes me sad to think that he could be sad TT
final major point: he is literally the sun. ive never seen anything brighter in my life. like…how do you sleep on someone as bright as the sun? i will never understand…i will now proceed to spam you with the sun, please wear glasses to avoid eye injury. you have been warned
so i guess i didnt really answer your question but i hope this will help people to realize that they shouldn’t be sleeping on lee seokmin since he’s an extremely talented, handsome, sweet, and amazing person who is the sun and deserves more love and attention
Hogwarts robe being wayyyyyyyy too big on him sweater paws
“Mama you said this was in a small?”
“it is in a small hao. You’re just smaller than small i guess”
Biting his lips like crazy when the hat is placed on his lil fluffy head
slytherins at the table all being like “what he looks too pure to be here”
smol minghao getting lost in the corridors
best friends! with hosh
“You’re a half blood? sweet me too!”
Second year minghao getting peer pressured into trying out for quidditch ft. hosh
“how the hell do you fly so fast???” “uhm-”
“because he weighs as much as the fucking broom soonyoung”
“jihoon why don’t you love me?” soonhoon lives
blushy hao after his first game
People always wonder how he’s a slytherin bc hes so nice and shy
…..when hes not mad
once a Gryffindor named mingyu scratched his broom going on a “joyride” and he was sent to the hospital wing for 8 days
really hardworking! studies very hard and practices quidditch so much that other people get worried
“hao youre going to get hurt if you keep practicing without sleeping”
“pssh i’ll take a nap once i finish 3 more laps”
playing with his pet owl (which he uses to send letters to his parents who live far away)dont touch me im soft
favorite class is charms bc he likes being able to do little things that make people smile
also bc thats the class that teaches him to do fun stuff like make junhui’s hair spontaneously change color (which junhui doesn’t mind because he claims he still looks handsome regardless damn vampire)
also not surprisingly really good at defense against the dark arts
fifth year minghao getting lots of people fawning over him bc of how he suddenly dyed his hair white (and those years of intense quidditch training sure helped too) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
still gets really shy every time he gets called handsome by girls and guys alike
minghao writing secret letters to the person he likes and sends them via charmed paper airplane and gets all giggly
as the years go by he gets stronger and more confident (que thughao)
got into a big fight in 6th year with a gryffindor because they claimed slytherin house cheated in the quidditch finals
which they didn’t. they won fair and square and hao worked super hard
insults thrown back and forth
“i don’t give a damn if i get expelled from hogwarts. NO ONE INSULTS MY TEAM AND WALKS AWAY WITHOUT AT LEAST A MISSING ARM”
fight gets broken up by gryffindor house prefect seungcheol
as punishment for hexing the boy, hao gets suspended from playing quidditch for the rest of the year
sulks and pouts in the library while junhui tries to cheer him up why are hufflepuffs so sweet?
“ we could go to hogsmeade? I’ll buy you cauldron cakes”
“see! being suspended isnt that bad. I mean I’m not on my house team either so at least you have me!”
“…. is that supposed to make me feel better jun”
his patronous would be a gold dragon and soonyoung would always be like “man why i couldn’t i have a cool patronous too instead of a fucking hamster??”
“idk hamsters are pretty cool man if you ask me”
Stressed out minghao taking a break from studying for OWLS to go on a midnight broom ride over the forbidden forest
Crying on the last day of seventh year because he’s going to miss the memories
“what?! HAO YOURE CRYING??? I DIDNT KNOW YOU COULD CRY”
sniffling “…. shut up mingyu”
A/N: AHHHHHHHHH that took forever to write. I just love harry potter (and minghao) so much and so i just thought why not combine my two loves. tbh i alwasy have a soft spot of supernatural aus.

Omg I was already rewatching 13x06 and came to your blog to freak out about how in the "that's a pretty damn big win" Sam closed the doors of the drawer like that was such an unnecesary moment and I felt like it could mean "he's out of the closet for me, these doors can shut down forever there's no going back in" or the other way around idk. And then saw u were commenting about it just on your last ask and gods thank god I wasn't the only one seeing that
DEAN OPENED THE DOORS!
THEY HAD THAT CONVERSATION ABOUT WHY DEAN’S SO HAPPY AND HE’S LIKE “WELL I GOT MY CAS BACK, OF COURSE I’M LE HAPPY NOW!”
AND SAM’S LIKE OKAY I GUESS THAT’S FAIR BUT… *CLOSES CLOSET*
Yeah, and the whole thing took place in the room with the saloon doors (you know, the kind that swing both ways?).
I mean, I had to watch the whole thing like three times through because I couldn’t believe it.
