two of my top favorite things in life

things you should definitely 100% not think about when you think about philip shea (except do because philip shea is perfect and you should always think about him)

- Okay, first of all, don’t think about how Philip was literally almost shot and actually did literally beg for his life for a moment and allowed himself to be scared about that for approximately .5 seconds before sucking it up and remaining seemingly calm for pretty much the rest of the show (except for when he realized tommy and tracey were in danger. because philip shea cares about other people. but once they are gone, he accepts it quickly and moves on. that is philips’ like number one skill. accept and move on. don’t think about why that is).

- Don’t think about how he somehow got to the city in the middle of the night and then didn’t even risk going inside. Don’t think about how he just curled up on the couch outdoors as if this was a common, acceptable place for him to sleep and passed out, alone, after almost being killed.

- Don’t think about how he goes from saying “I’m done. can’t go back, can’t go back there” to accepting he can’t live with him mom again in approximately ten seconds. He doesn’t argue too much about it. Doesn’t beg or plead or threaten to run away. Just says “I know” and gives his mom cigarettes and then sits and comes out to her because she wants to hear nice things about him and to him, lukas liking him back enough to kiss him is a nice thing.

- Don’t think about how when given the opportunity, Philip will sit next to a man who has almost definitely abused him and just do nothing but pretend the guy likes him.

- Don’t think about his honest confusion when he asks “Why not” after Lukas says he didn’t have sex with Rose.

- Don’t think about how Philip is so calm and willing to do or be whatever the person he loves (read: his mom and Lukas) needs him to be. I mean, yes, he tells Lukas no that one time and calls him on his shit other times, but really, overall, the kid is willing to put himself on the line for those he cares about: “Had to be cool for my mom—I can be cool for you to.” “What do you want me to say? I’ll say whatever you want.” Ugh, he just—he tells Lukas not to drink the hand sanitizer but then three seconds later he does the same thing, no questions asked, because Lukas tells him to. Don’t even get me started on the whole Rose debacle.

- Lukas freaks out when Philip hands him a condom, Philip minimizes it and says “It’s okay. it’s okay, it’s fine” coaxes him back down and no more pressure to do anything. Philip tells Lukas he told his mom about them, Lukas says “There’s nothing to say” and Philip just nods quickly, “Okay.” Doesn’t argue. Doesn’t call Lukas on anything. Just says okay and then offers to take Lukas into the city cause he thinks that will help him.

- Philip won’t get Lukas drugs, but he will help Lukas look for things to sell when he asks and go with him to the pawn shop and wait outside while he does it.

- And, like, I’m not saying this to say Philip is a pushover or weak, he’s not- he’s just contained. All the time. He is the stable one. The calm one. He is careful not to push too much. He thinks of solutions and waits to see if they will actually be listened to but is very, very cautious with actually being assertive with his ideas/wants/needs. He is just so much more attuned to everyone else.

- Oh, ALSO, don’t think too much about how Philip overheard Gabe and Helen arguing about him and chose to step out and put himself in that line of fire anyway. He could have just hung back and waited a little. Or, fuck, run off until things cooled down. But Gabe was being yelled at and they were arguing and so he decided to step in. Cause Philip wants to keep everyone happy.

When was the last time you cried? Hopefully not today because it’s only 10 AM and I think this date is going pretty well.

💧:Not yet, but who knows? I’m just very emotional. People often see being emotional as a weakness, so I really wanted to write music that changed that perception, and made me feel strong. The album is about that, but through the life of Cry Baby. It’s about how different experiences shape her, and help her become who she is, which by the end is someone who’s crazy and emotional, but confident and comfortable in it. I think over time it helped me do the same thing.


How many tattoos do you have?

💧:Off the top of my head, about 37. It’s definitely in the 30s.

What’s your favorite one?

💧:I have a gumball machine on my abdomen, that one and these two big ones I have on my thighs.

What do you want to get done next?

💧:I really want a Mark Ryden illustration tattooed. He has this series called “Blood, Sweat and Tears,” and I really want the “Sweat” one.

Are you a sweaty person?

💧:Definitely not.

There’s a photo of you smoking on your Instagram and you’ve captioned it, “it’s a joint not a cigarette for those of you wondering in the comments.”

💧:I get so many little kids in my comments being like “stop smoking you’re going to get cancer and die” so I feel like it’s important to make the distinction between marijuana and cigarettes. They’re very different things.

I really don’t know how I’d deal with that. I’d probably beating 12-year-olds like “do your homework you little shit.”

💧:Yeah, ride a bike! I do wish kids would get off the internet and go outside more.

This year was a magical time for minewt fic. Fic authors explored pre-canon and post-canon realtionships bewteen Newt and Minho, playing on their strengths and fleshing out their weaknesses. Authors brought to life realities where our boys  helped each other through the pain that haunted them and aus where our boys were happily or not so happily lovin each other. To show our appreciation to our wonderful fic authors below are the top twenty minewt fics of 2015, as voted by the shipdom! 

Two things to note before looking at the fic rec:

  • italicized titles are my personal favorites
  • ** indicate that you should carefully read the tags before reading the fic

1. The Storyteller | nightscape | Complete | 1k | Teen

In which Newt discovers his gift for storytelling, while Minho is hopeless at words (and hopelessly in love).

2. Inkwell | Smontheye | Incomplete | 16k | Mature **

Minho felt no surprise that living in the Glade was getting to him.

Being trapped like lab rats inflicted scars—physical and invisible—on all the boys. But it was a pain that was supposed to unite them. Their shared fears and grief formed a delicately balanced arch of comradeship and cooperation where just one cracked brick could send the entire structure toppling.

Like hell was he gonna be that one.

(In which Minho has a painful, horrible recurring dream, and he, Newt, and the Glade are never the same again.)

3. Take Care of You | minhoscallousedhands (aka fuckboytommy) | Complete | Teen

Minho likes to run at dawn. Newt knows. Minho thinks their relationship was over. Newt doesn’t.

4. Let Sleeping Boys Lie | nightscape | Complete | 1k | Teen

Waking Newt up in the mornings could very well be the most deadly task ever faced by the Gladers.

5. I saw a flicker, than smoke | sulfric | Complete | 1k | Teen

there’s a boy - there’s lots of boys, but there’s a boy. he sees him right away, his eyes drawn to him like a moth to a light. it’s kind of embarrassing, really, because he can’t stop staring at the beautiful boy jogging through the glade.

that night, he’s introduced to the keeper of the runners.

6. More than Bruises | caritivereflection | Complete | 4k | Teen **

Waking Newt up in the mornings could very well be the most deadly task ever faced by the Gladers.

7. Things you said when you were drunk | mrsshuckface (aka badboythoe) | Complete | 1k | General

Nights were always hard for Newt, Minho knew this. What he didn’t know, couldn’t understand is why they had started getting this bad.

8. Invisible Thorns | caritivereflection | Incomplete | 69k | Teen

Paradise lasted hours. Thomas thought the worst was over, but he soon learns that WICKED’s claws have a deeper hold than any of them could have imagined.

9. Built to Fall Apart | tridecaphilia | Complete | 33k | Mature **

Minho doesn’t want a Guide. Newt doesn’t want a Sentinel. Fate has other ideas.

10. Whisper Words of Wisdom | emma_and_orlando | Incomplete | 22k | Explict **

Minho is Prince and his kingdom is in money problems, so his father arranges a marriage with a rich boy who will help the family out of debts.


Newt is a young Prince who is forced into marriage with someone he doesn’t know and lives across the world. His kind is only on the world to provide children, norhing more. And everyone keeps reminding him that.

11. Animal I have Become | tridecaphilia | Complete | 21k | Teen **

Before they died, Minho’s parents were known for being able to rehabilitate any animal, even half-human ones. Now they’re gone, so Minho’s the one Jorge calls when he breaks up a were-fighting ring. Which puts Minho in charge of one feral Alpha named Newt.

12.  Pretend that you love me and kiss me again | mee4ever | Incomplete | 12k | Mature **

Suddenly, there was a guy beside him. He was of Asian decent, possibly Korean, Newt didn’t know him and Newt thought he was extremely handsome.


“Hello, gorgeous,” the man said, leaning on the bar. Looking at Newt. Newt stared back for a second before blushing and start looking around to see if there was anybody else the bloke could’ve addressed. Instead he sees Tommy and his heart sinks.

Or the one where Minho helps Newt get over his ex.

13. The Old One Two | pissedofsandwhich | Incomplete | 18k | Teen

Desperate for a job, Newt takes up a shady offer from a high school friend. The job is to play the medic for WICKED, an underground boxing ground. Newt doesn’t plan to stay around, but when a certain Korean fighter catches his eyes, his plans all fall to pieces.

Somehow, cupcakes play a major role in the whole mess.

14. Sing Anyway | TLvop | Complete | 8k | Teen

“So,” Minho said, into the silence. “The world’s a total fucking wreck. I still want to date you.”

15. Flower Fields are Like Dreams | technicolor monochrome | Complete | 7K | General

In which Minho is the unexpectedly hot owner of a flower shop, and now Newt has vases of flowers back home that he now has no idea what to do with.

16. Took the Midnight Train (going anywhere) | avxry | Complete | 5k | Not rated

Newt meets Minho on a train, Thomas meets Gally on the train, and they all would have met even if they didn’t, and doesn’t that make fate seem more real than it was five minutes ago?

17. Guilty Pleasure | Minho’s Hero Limps | 44k | Mature

A tiny story where Newt works for as a personal assistant for the owner of a large company in Glade City. The owner is Minho, who is a young billionaire with a long list of past assistants who all took advantage of the position.

18. His smiled turned the lights on | sebbykurt | Complete | 1k | Teen

From an anonymous prompt I received on tumblr reading: “something fluffy with them being running partners in the maze please.”

19. Loose Change and a Looser Hold | cockatoo | Complete | 6k | Explicit **

Minho wasn’t looking for love or companionship, just a warm enough body to fill the bottomless void of his desire. But Newt, Newt’s only looking for the money. And that’s as perfect as things get in the real world, and apparently that’s all they needed.

20. Only 30 shades of Grey | Minho’s Hero Limps | 41k | Mature

This little fanfic is based off a 30-day relationship challenge I found on Pinterest. Basically, it’s thirty different, fluffy stories about Minho and Newt being married and doing married-couple things.

Official Scans Vs Fan Subs

So socialdegenerate​ and I went through Viz Media’s Volumes Two, Three and Six of Gangsta. and found some interesting differences in translation. Nothing major because the sub groups do such a top job it’s just tiny, little things that get lost in translation. My favorite is Chad’s observations on Nicolas’ feelings on Alex (♥ω♥ ) ~♪

OS = Official Scans

S = Fan Scans
