The slightest change in your tone will
Throw me for a loop.
And though I know you’re not him,
It’ll eat me up inside–
Wondering where I went wrong,
What I should’ve said instead,
What I shouldn’t have said at all
And i’ll pray I didn’t fuck things up.
I’ll pray that you still love me,
I’ll pray that nothing has changed,
As I sing myself to sleep
Don’t leave, don’t leave, don’t leave.
modern au where Moiraine is driving the kiddos in her blue volkswagon bus and Lan in the passenger like cleaning his finger nails with a giant knife or some dumb fantasy thing like that, when “…Baby One More Time” comes on the radio and Moiraine gets WAY too into it and Lan doesn’t flinch or acknowledge her intense jammage and no one says anything when its over, but the kiddos are in the back just staring mouth agape the entire time, too shocked to even record it for evidence
Now that the full version of Like Morning Follows Night is out, I can say one thing:
I definitely think it’s not a love song. The only word of love that’s used is from Sun’s point of view. This decidedly elevates it to a one-sided thing. Just listen to it - does this sound like two people saying “I love you/etc” to one another? If, for whatever reason, the answer is yes…I now ask you: if you compare it to Bmblb, which one sounds MORE like two people saying “I love you/etc”?
My answer is one hundred percent Bmblb, and that’s why I don’t put Bmblb on the level of one-sided because the lyrics definitely make it seem that’s there’s two points of view, and it’s got a much happier vibe, one of realisation on both parts.
LMFN does not have this realisation, in fact, the lyrics push the concept that Sun wishes Blake would realise how much he cares for her - but until then, he will follow her. Like Morning Follows Night. The song isn’t called like Night follows morning for a reason. Nowhere does this song say Blake needs him like he wants her to.
Still, I like the duet, because it reinforces the meaning of what we saw in V4. It’s a strong song that, to me, showcases the struggle that Blake and Sun have had - trying to understand each other’s points of view.
I genuinely am glad that somebody is telling Blake she needs to stop her lone wolf act. Sun’s stepped in as the voice of reason she needs, which used to be her teammates - particularly Yang. Obviously Blake is missing them dearly, and what she’s said proves that she never wanted to leave.
I believe Sun cannot fill the shoes of Ruby, Weiss and especially Yang. He isn’t going to become Blake’s partner, he’s got his own team he needs to lead, and a partner of his own. Blake was more than happy where she was before - who she was with before. When it boils down to it, I’m thinking there’s an underlying reason to the story as to why she chose Yang at the beginning.
Anyway, this is purely my opinion on the context of the song, and I don’t intend to tear down those that want to view it differently as a way to hype themselves. Not at all, in fact, I just want people that might have a harder time believing in Bumbleby to take this into consideration. I’m trying to be as subjective as possible using the lyrics, tone, and when it was used in the show to gauge what it’s implying.
Until Bmblb is used, if it is at all, I keep my judgement that it’s a solid romanctic song implying Bumbleby.
Deku- He doesn’t drink. Usually the DD. When he does drink, however, he is emotional and a lightweight. “You’re too nice to me, Uraraka-san. I don’t deserve you!” Kinda reckless, he ran into a wall once and busted his nose.
Uraraka- She’s the one who gets really honest and brutal. “BAKUGOU, YOU CAN EAT MY ASS.” She turns into the “dumb baby” of the group. “Who wants to see me, jump down this flight of stairs?” She ends up floating away half the time and no one ever knows where she is.
Iida- Typically doesn’t drink either. The other DD. When he does drink he doesn’t change that much, just kinda loosens up a bit. “HAS EVERYONE DRANK WATER. MAKE SURE YOU DRINK WATER BETWEEN ALCOHOL. IT PREVENTS HANGOVERS AND WILL-” A chatter box.
Bakugou- Shirtless. He’s the one who gets drunk and immediately loses his shirt. Becomes more friendly(ish), but the nicknames stick. “Deku isn’t actually half bad for being a complete fucking idiot.” Lost his shoes and made a pair out of Hantas tape. “IT’S CALLED INOVATION, ASSBITCH.”
Kirishima- The karaoke master. Literally knows every single song. Toxic by Britney Spears? Knows it. Life is a highway by Rascal Flatts? Got it. The hype man. He ends up on top of a table at some point. He goes up to people asks, “Wanna know how I got these scars?” “You only have one and it was when you were a BABY.”
Momo- She usually provides the alcohol for the party. “JUST MAKE IT FOR US!” “We gotta be responsible if we DO drink.” Makes sure no one’s stuff gets messed with. Gets really giggly when drunk and everyone falls in love.
Todoroki- Spicy boy™. Beyonce once said, “I get filthy when that liquor gets into me.” Speaking of Beyonce, Partition is his jam and will not hesitate to dance his ass off. Half lidded eyes are his his look when he’s drunk.
Tsuyu- Can handle her alcohol. The one who tends to the emotional drunks. Makes sure to drink plenty of water. She takes “drinking like a fish” to another level. Gets existential. “You ever wondered why were here?”
Kaminari- The DJ. Will play everyone’s favorite song then follow it up with cotton eyed joe and he thinks it’s hilarious. The one guy who has rhythm but can’t dance for shit… so it kinda looks like he knows what he’s doing.
Jirou- Comes out her shell more. Is actually a big dork and makes sure everyone has a good time. Mentions memes or vines to everything everyone says. “It’s hot in here.” “It’s the heat.” “Can you read this for me?” “No I cannot. What up. I’m Jared, I’m 19 and I never fuckin’ learned how to read.”
Mina- “Typical” drunk girl. Here to have a good time and Does 10 shots off the bat. She laughs really loud and compliments everyone. “WHO WANTS TO DO JELLO SHOTS?” Is always down for beer pong and she always wins. The Champ™
