us together at the same place

‘You & Me (Thanks Aroha)’

Do you remember us from that warm spring day?
We couldn’t hide our awkwardness
It was my first time feeling that way
Everything was so beautiful, especially when I looked at you

When I’m with you, things become sweet
I can’t believe it

I’m your sunflower, you’re my light
I’m happy because we’re looking at the same place
I hope we’ll be together and create our own story
Wanna walk together? On this flower road ahead?

you you you and me and
you you you and thank you
you you you
Our pictures that we’ll draw out together
When I’m tired and struggling, I think of you
I thought of something good, it’s you all

The reason I fell for AROHA, listen up
Problems I thought were easy, you solved for me
You made me strong and came to me sweetly
You make my heart feel so calm

I’ll be good, I’ll give you more love so you’ll be surprised
I’ll give it all to you guys
Let’s be forever, until the end
It’s what we felt when we first met, it’s destiny
Let’s be together, let’s make heaven together

Each moment feels like a movie
I’m getting curious

I’m your sunflower, you’re my light
I’m happy because we’re looking at the same place
I hope we’ll be together and create our own story
Wanna walk together? On this flower road ahead?

Do you remember? The day we first saw each other?
We were so shy back then
When I see you, I feel so happy
Whatever you want, I’ll always be with you

When things get complicated
I’ll sing a song for you

Wanna walk together, one step, two steps, three steps?
I can only be happy if you’re by my side
One step, two steps, three steps, whenever you’re feeling tired
Wanna walk together? On this flower road ahead?

you you you and me and
you you you and thank you
you you you
Our pictures that we’ll draw out together
When I’m tired and struggling, I think of you
I thought of something good, it’s you all

I wanted to draw all the diamonds together. but since they haven’t revealed fully all the designs yet, I use the wall design of them instead here..

I somehow feel like they are almost like royal gem siblings somehow? (though gems technically don’t have “family”, but I like to think they came from the same place type of deal). I like to think pink as the youngest/newest, and White as the oldest of them all. And yellow and blue in the middle (maybe yellow a bit older than blue? )

I’ll never forget the way your laugh sounded no matter how long it’s been since I’ve heard it. I won’t forget how your breaths sounded as you slept, or the patterns your heartbeat would make as my head laid on your chest. I won’t forget the color of your eyes, the scars on your hands, the freckles on your nose, or your silhouette. How could I? I can’t forget that I’m in love with you but I have to love you from afar now. The kind of love where I can’t go home with you. The kind of love where you have to disappear for a while. The kind of love where I can’t call you, I have to rely on fate to bring us to the same place at the same time. I’ll love you from afar because I know that we are better apart then we are together, but that doesn’t make it hurt any less.

something interesting for the mommy issues!sangwoo hc

Lemme tell you it’s absolutely true??

So (skip to avoid spoilers please)

If it’s not apparent enough by the English translation of the comic, Sangwoo’s got mommy issues the size of a small country, which are supported by various things in the story thus far, (the dress, “do you want to be a mom?”, the insinuation that she sexually abused him. etc) but there’s one thing that doesn’t quite come across in the translation

I read it first in English and then in Korean, because I’m a desperate ho, and I noticed something

Yoonbum refers to Sangwoo almost always entirely as “Sangwoo-ssi”. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Korean honorifics, “ssi” is an honorific that when placed behind a first name like in “Sangwoo-ssi”, is used between adults of approximate same age and same speech level. He also speaks to Sangwoo almost always with formal speech. These two things together is kind of the standard for two adults who know each other, maybe aren’t super close, but know each other enough, like work colleagues or classmates. 

In the basement scene where Sangwoo is choking Yoonbum, however, as Yoonbum is begging to be saved, Yoonbum drops the formal speech and starts to call him “Sangwoo-ya.” “Ya” is always used with the first name, and denotes a much closer and much more familiar relationship than “ssi”. It’s used between friends and siblings, but with the sharp contrast of his formal speech and “ssi”, when I was reading it Yoonbum calling Sangwoo “Sangwoo-ya” immediately struck me as the way a mother would call her son. And not too long after Yoonbum says “Sangwoo-ya” he drops the rope. 

There are other things that I didn’t think were conveyed fully through the translation (the translation is great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes things are lost between languages) but I thought this would be good to share!

instead of hero/villain ships being about weird power dynamics or sexual tension or whatever, hero/villain ships where is just kinda.. happens… like the hero spends so much time with the villain, trying to save them or rehabilitate them or kill them in some instances, that they actually start enjoying the villain’s company more than they’d like to admit. both sides end up have post or pre-battle heart to hearts, where they discover they have more in common than they thought. maybe the hero can understand the villain’s plight, or the villain comes round to the hero’s way of thinking. 

more hero/villain ships where the villain just sort of hangs out with the heroes. they’re bound to betray them at some point, or so the hero thinks, because they’re a free spirit who follows their own whims. but now the villain is crashing at the hero’s apartment and the hero doesn’t even care. sometimes the hero and villain eat takeout together or fall asleep in the same places. then the hero really notices the villain’s absence when they’re gone.

more hero/villain ships where the hero and villain have known each other since they were kids, or certainly for a long time. they were friends. somewhere along the line they became more, or at least one of them started to develop feelings for the other. then when they eventually become the hero and the villain, those feelings don’t just go away. they manifest themselves into strangled pleas and frustrated yelling. alternatively, the relationship continues, but it’s not healthy and they need to stop, but they’re addicted to each other. 

more hero/villain ships where it never goes past flirting and battle banter. they’re always teasing and flirting with each other, maybe even been close enough to kiss and smiled with shit eating grins on their faces, but both recognize it could never work. 

more hero/villain ships from the villain’s perspective. pining away for the hero in their secret lair or from prison. being so close to almost letting slip that they love the hero. the villain being mentally ill and unable to cope with their attraction to the hero and having that drive them deeper into themselves, to the point where the hero almost becomes the villain’s villain.

blue night radio ♡ 170309
translation: u. kim, soompi

(the leaving announcement - longer translation) jonghyun: when i first started hosting this show, i wanted to create a space where people, including myself, could set their hearts at rest, no matter where they were. three years later, this space has grown into a whole world in itself. it taught me about so many things i’ve never experienced, and i’ve also revealed a lot to my listeners. this space allowed us to come together in one place regardless of where we were physically. some people joined us from the other side of the world and at a different time, but we were were still in the same space. physical space had nothing to do with us, and i hope it continues to be that way.

do you know the feeling when you find something you love so much that you’re not sure what you should do to take good care of it? blue night has turned into something like that for me, and now i don’t now what to do. i guess every beginning has an end. i have something to tell everyone today. for various reasons, i will be taking some time away from the physical space of blue night i thought my listeners should be the first ones to know. i will continue to be in the same spiritual space we created.

i apologize. i said i would stay for a long time, but [i had to do this] because of my schedule and health. i’m sure there will be a time when we can share our stories with each other again. as i’ve always said, i have a certain mindset that i set for myself as a radio dj. while i’m away, i will continue thinking about those things and polish myself before i come back. i will definitely come back.

How to: Make a Combustible Purifying Powder

You’ll need:
Camphor or Frankincense or eventually Sulphur 
Sea Salt (preferably blessed or at least, rough, but regular will do)
My pick: Powdered Palo Santo
You can replace with: St. John’s Wort (for driving something away); Amaranth, Benzoin, cinnamon, mint, sage, saffron, vervain, (to protect); mandrake (powerful protection);  any other purifying/protecting plant you want
Optionally: a mortar or a grinder

A Explanation:
This is a highly flammable powder that kinda goes “poof” into a large flame and dies out quickly. So be careful.
It’s good for kind of driving away nasty energies/spirits, or just purifying the place.

How to:
If you’re using the same ingredients as me, all you have to do is mix them together in whatever container you want, and optionally, use the mortar to make it smoother and break the bigger bits.
If you’re using another plant that isn’t already powdered, make sure it’s dry, and grind it in the grinder or the mortar (depending on the plant) and then add the camphor and salt.
That’s pretty much it, to be honest.

Use:
You can use it on a bonfire or a campfire to finish a ceremony and such.
You can burn it in a heat resistant recipient in your own home.
You can put a bit on a candle flame when doing a ritual or something.
You may put it on a piece charcoal (made for incense) and such other things.

It’s a nice, explosive way to shoo bad energies out the door.

As usual, be sure to tell me how it went!

And now I’m back where I began

A Night in the Woods!Yugioh AU by me cos I couldn’t help myself. The name was suggested by @dragonbeak​  ✌ (thanks again!)

✎ “Three figures return to Domino City granted with another chance to start anew and live a normal life after a few years of disappearing. However, the people they had once knew and left behind are not the same as they used to be. The friends they grew up with have changed along with the homes that sheltered them. The city grows, and with each passing day begins to leave them behind. For old bygone’s sake, everyone comes together for a small celebratory reunion and to hold duels in the most unlikely of places.

And there’s something lurking in the woods.”

Combining NitW’s general story and feel of characters + canon post-events *and coughdoujinshiconceptscough*, this is the idea I have come up with. This is the first batch of character designs and I have more coming in later ᕕ(⌐■_■)ᕗ click on the images to see higher resolution, yadda yadda.

“Broken”.

In Jack’s last FNAF video (MERGED TOGETHER | Five Nights At Freddy’s Sister Location #4) :

*Anti glitch*.

Today’s video title, zalgo description, and heck- even the thumbnail. It’s all literary broken:

There’s been theories that suggest that Anti has taken Jack’s place. I agree with them. 

If this is the case; Jack is the one (trapped) inside, and it’s Jack trying to get out through possibly- and if so, ironically- the same glitches Anti used. 

Now, to Anti; Jack is the “bad”, broken thing inside of him.

My point… If something is broken that you don’t have the time or effort to fix, what do you do with it?

Get rid of it. Throw it away. Destroy it.

How much longer before this happens?

“We Live For Love” - The Amazing True Story

“We Live For Love” is a real song written by Neil Giraldo, the guitarist - and later husband - of rock icon Pat Benatar.

Many of the details I used in the story “We Live For Love” are directly from their real life love story. Pat and Neil met exactly the same way as Jamie and Claire did - and ended up touring the world together, marrying in 1982 and raising two daughters.

They still tour today - sharing their stories and hits with a brand new generation.

And all the while, share their incredible, enduring love story with the world.

Here’s how Pat described it in her autobiography, “Between A Rock and a Heart Place” (emphasis mine):

I’M JUST GOING TO put this out there once and for all: without Neil Giraldo (or “Spyder,” as I’d later dub him), my career would not have happened. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t have had any success as the pop princess Chrysalis wanted. But I never would have succeeded to the degree I did, made strides for women, been part of the eighties rock movement, had my face on MTV, won four Grammys, sold millions of records, and still been around thirty years later without the genius and heart of that man.

Because I am not responsible for it; we are responsible for it, all of it. From the moment he stepped into the room at SIR, our lives changed—first musically, and later romantically and spiritually. We were each other’s muse. It was like we had each been missing a part and when we met, we were finally whole, connected on a primal level.

…From the moment we first started collaborating, I knew Spyder was a visionary. His mind never stopped. He was constantly experimenting and trying new things, yet he knew precisely what needed to be pushed farther and what needed to be discarded. It was exactly what I’d been missing.

…Still, we kept it professional during the recording. We worked in the studio eighteen hours a day… One of the first things Spyder told me was that my instincts had been right all along—everything depended on me having the right sound, the right direction, and the right players. What I needed was a band where the bed of the music was aggressive and strong, a band that would push me to sing harder, tougher. As he says, I needed a Sicilian guitar player from Cleveland to dirty it up some.

…And when Spyder made that sound a reality, I thought the very same thing I’d thought a few years back at the Liza Minnelli concert: I can do that.

I’d had it in me all the time, but it was Spyder who let it out.

  • Gavin: Huh. You know what I just realized? Oy is the funniest word in the entire world.
  • Michael: Huh.
  • Gavin: I mean, think about it. You never hear the word oy and not smile. Impossible. Funny, funny word.
  • Geoff: Oh, dear God.
  • Gavin: Poodle is another funny word.
  • Geoff: Please drink your drink, Gavin.
  • Gavin: In fact, if you put oy and poodle together in the same sentence, you'd have a great new catch phrase, you know?
  • Gavin: Like, oy with the poodles already. So from now on, when the perfect circumstances arise, we will use our favorite new catch phrase.
  • Michael: Oy with the poodles already.
  • Gavin: I'm telling you, it's knocking ‘whatcha talking ‘bout, Willis?' right out of first place.
  • Geoff: Gavin, for God's sake, be quiet.
first kiss?

for jeremy it was love at first sight
for jean, after years of abuse at riko’s hands, it takes longer

it takes slowly finding his place and getting used to the rhythm of his new team

it takes letting jeremy in a little at a time 

first as teammates 

then friends 

then he starts to let jeremy be physically affectionate with him 

it’s slow progress, the first time jeremy hugged him he flinched, but eventually they’re close friends and he feels comfortable with the contact 

he also feels himself start to fall for jeremy 

he wants to be around him all the time. he’s drawn to jeremy’s warmth, his optimism, his patience, and his obvious affection for him 

hugs and friendly touches start to linger and one day jeremy kisses jean’s cheek, just the barest brush of his lips, and jean blushes 

he lets jeremy walk away, still in mild shock 

their first real kiss comes the day after that incident when jean, very awkwardly, asks jeremy if he’d like to kiss him again 

jeremy smiles and leans in to kiss jean’s cheek again but stops immediately when he hears jean say ‘no’, feels his hand close around his wrist. he’s confused for a moment before jean brings jeremy’s fingers gently to his lips and says ‘here’. jeremy moves his hand to cup jean’s face and leans in close to kiss him, softly, but with a confidence that calms jean’s nerves, and he lets himself relax into it and kiss him back 

the next day at practice jeremy can’t stop smiling across at jean. jean becomes flustered and they’re both a bit of a mess on the court, but none of their teammates seem too bothered

Hanyu Yuzuru talks about Machida Tatsuki’s “Sudden Retirement”

Yuzu: 

It’s difficult to put into words but, ‘comrade’? - it feels like that. The term 'rival’ is also very close (in meaning) but no matter what you want to call it, it’s not that kind of prickly (relationship) - of course, during competitions we're both very very prickly towards each other and we don’t really talk very much. 

But it’s not like that, both of us together have been aiming for the same kind of place, aiming for the same kind of stage, aiming for the same kind of location*. We have fought our way forward, together. (He’s) that kind of comrade (to me). 

Of course he’s a big senior (to me) so calling him a comrade might be considered disrespectful but, I think that probably, Machida would also say the same thing for me.

A short but very respectful interview filled with quiet emotion.

Full translation under the cut.

So often when we talk about Asians in media, people expect Asian-Americans to be placated by Asian content. They don’t distinguish between Asian and Asian-American content — they’re very different, and that’s not to place a higher value on one or the other. It’s just to give an awareness to people that to lump us together as the same story is reductive to our experience. The fortitude it took to come here as an immigrant, with no support system in a new place, sometimes not even speaking the language, and what it must take to have the courage to build that kind of a story and home from scratch — it is a different experience. When Hollywood executives think Asian-Americans are placated by simply Asian roles, I think that’s reductive to what it means for our immigrant experience and how unique and special that is to us. Asians and Asian-Americans — not better nor worse — just different.” [x]

“Technicolor Deco” by Shirley Gisi of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

I absolutely adore this quilt! I saw it in Chattanooga last year, where it won Second Place Wall Quilts. It went on to Des Moines where it won Best Use of Color, and here in Daytona, it won Second Place for Wall Quilts-Stationary Machine Quilted. It also graced the cover of American Quilter Magazine last November.

Shirley Gisi is known for her wonderful use of color and this one is my favorite of all of her pieces I’ve seen.

When the same quilts travel together to shows (as frequently happens) they start feeling a bit like family, and it was great to see this gorgeous quilt again.

Gift 30 By Milla

Hello! :)
Getting the last gift! Finally this calendar (last year lol) is complete! I hope you enjoyed all the goodies … Btw, I loved to see them in your interior! You are incredibly talented and creative! ♥
I felt that something was missing to beautify the outside and created this together with love for you.

>> I edited the pillow knot textures in potoshop and you will have to do the same if you want your images look more real. Note that the knot detail is a texture, it is not 3D … It has parts where texture is clearer (that’s what I corrected). The smudge tool does the job. ;) Credits for Petunia Mae.

>> The hanging planters come with slots so that the plants can be placed in them. For hanging plant you will have to use OMSP’s to desired height. All credit goes to @yumesims (I converted from your conversion)…

>> The Wreath Flowers and Wreath with plaque are by Luna. I only edited the mesh and added recolors.

·Even though it’s a warm summers evening he insists you take his jacket when he sees you shiver once

·Still being so shy around one another and flinching when your hands meet

.Keeping them in the same place though so eventually he take your hand in his

·Sharing the light meal together in mostly silence as you just enjoy each other’s company

·When you’re having dessert, which consists of strawberries dipped in sugar, is when the conversation really starts

·It flows so easily between the two of you and soon enough you’re laughing and joking together like you used to; before your crushes grew

·You notice his eyes flickering down to your mouth and back again to your eyes as you lick sugar from the corner of your mouth

·His heart is fluttering the entire time; he loves the sound of your laugh

.Hank gently brushing a stray hair out of your face and making you blush

·Sitting so close by the end of the evening you’re practically cuddling

·Hank telling you all about his lab work as you watch the stars

·Resting your head on his shoulder; causing him to blush

·Walking back to the mansion together hand in hand, with some of the picnic things in your arms as the night got cold

·Making hot chocolate for both of you and sitting in front of the fire to continue your conversation

·Finally breaking apart and bidding each other good night well past midnight as both of you have become sleepy

·Pressing a gentle kiss to Hanks lips after he insists on walking you to your bedroom door, making his glasses fog slightly

It’s 2 am.

You’re stood in the bathroom, staring in the mirror.

The bathroom is still a mess. His things are scattered, the remnants of him and your relationship.

You remember him bringing a toothbrush to leave in the bathroom, in your old place, before you’d moved in together. He’d been cheeky about it. He came up behind you while brushing your teeth. He grinned, started brushing his teeth and when he was done he pushed it into the holder next to yours. He kissed your cheek and walked out.

Creepypasta #1008: Something Weird Is Going On In The Apartment Above Us

Length: Medium

My boyfriend and I moved into our first apartment together in the beginning of May. Of course, we were super excited as this was our first place together away from family. We were on our way to becoming real adults. 

After moving in all of our crap and settling in, we quickly discovered all the pros and cons of having an apartment in the city. We got used to the police sirens and traffic noise pretty quickly- but we noticed that the upstairs neighbors were making quite a lot of noise. And not just regular loud stomping or music noise, but a very strange sound that was almost the exact same every time. 

When we first moved in the noise would only occur every few days, if that. However when it started it seemed to happen again and again until late at night. The only way I can describe the sound is almost like furniture being dragged across the floor in the same twice pattern. BRRRRT BRRT! 

The second “drag” is always shorter and louder than the first and always comes a couple seconds after the first. The force is strong enough that it shakes our apartment, I’ve had to reposition things on our bookshelf and counters because they get shaken out of place.

We dealt with this noise for about two weeks before we decided to say anything. At this point the noise had been happening for about three days straight and we were getting pretty tired of it. My boyfriend was at work at the time so I decided to go up myself to see what was going on. 

I knocked on the door and a woman, probably in her mid 30’s, answered the door. She looked like a normal woman, black hair, fair skin, thicker build, but it’s her eyes that put me off. They were so sunken in it almost looked like she hadn’t slept in weeks, I almost felt bad about coming up there to talk to her but I decided to ask anyway. 

Me: Hi, how are you? We’d moved in a couple of weeks ago into the apartment below you and we noticed some noise coming from your apartment. 

Woman: What? 

Me: Yea um, it kind of sounds like furniture being dragged across the ground. I just wanted to see if you knew anything about it. 

Woman: No, that’s the construction going on in the Penthouse. 

Me: Oh, OK. I just wasn’t sure since it goes on till almost midnight. 

Woman: It’s not us. I have to go. Bye. 

And then she shut the door in my face, her facial was blank the entire time, and she had this kind of hunched posture. It freaked me out, when my boyfriend got home he asked what happened. I wish I had told him everything, but all I said was that the woman told me it was construction in the Penthouse which is 3 floors above us. We thought nothing of it for awhile and just kind of dealt with the noise thinking it was the construction workers just doing their jobs. That is until we actually went up there.

One night we were drinking with some friends and we figured that it would be fun to go see the Penthouse floor for ourselves. It’s 3am and we all ride the elevator up to the top of the building where the Penthouse is and when the elevator doors opened, I felt my stomach sink a little bit. The floor only extended to the left of the building and not the right where our apartment is. There is no Penthouse above us, never was. And that’s not it. 

According to my boyfriend, he has spoken with some of the residents that live directly under the Penthouse. They claim that they hear nothing when the construction crew is working. So we know that the woman in the apartment above us was blatantly lying, probably to get us to go away. 

We’ve wanted to go back up there to say something but we never got around to it. We kind of ignored it until about a week ago when we heard what sounded like hammers tapping on the floor at about 9am on a Saturday. 

My boyfriend, obviously angry, went down to the leasing office to complain about it and that’s when the bombshell hit. Apparently they had just started renovations that day on that apartment, which is why there was the hammer noise. But when he mentioned the dragging sound they seemed confused and then told us that no one has lived in that apartment for months. I have no idea who or what I talked to but I’m afraid to go back up there, so far the noise has lessened but every time I hear it, it sends chills down my spine.
