i only know how to live in big cities where public transport smells like urine and things are open until 2 am but also i want, for a few months, to retreat to the new england countryside and live by a lake, smell that rotting wood smell of old buildings, never see another person walk by unless i go into town where there is only one Main Street with one CVS
I finished work early yesterday and went to the new consignment store in town (found a lovely lace top) then took the trail home and noticed all the trees are budding ─ we also had an unexpected family dinner for my uncles birthday! 🙊
Monday I just cleaned and celebrated the new moon, Tuesday I worked in the morning and spent the afternoon reading and practicing yoga, today my sister is coming to visit then tmrw my other sister is as we’re all going to spend the weekend together!! 😁💗
me when i experience a slight ache in my upper body:
*sobbing* this is it. i am a dead person walking. how could this happen to me. how will i tell my parents about this disease. im so young. ive got a lot to live for. why me
yes it’s great that negan killed a rapist but please don’t forget that he himself is a rapist who literally scares women into trading sex for protection and for the protection of those they love and this does not clear him of that whatsoever
HYYH was all about youth and the struggles that came with it so I believe the consequent albums (WINGS and YNWA) are about growing up and leaving their youth/childhood behind.
Clothes There’s a heavy focus of clothes in the MV e.g. BTS sitting on a mountain of clothes. It’s possible that these clothes are ones they no longer wear. Everybody has clothes that no longer fits them when going through childhood and puberty. Perhaps these clothes represent their past as something they cannot “wear” anymore.
Train The train is in the MV, travelling to an unknown destination. It represents BTS travelling (into adulthood) and not staying still. In the beginning, Taehyung is seen stepping onto tracks as a train approaches. This could represent the the feelings of entering adulthood (scared, sad, helpless, etc.).
Seasons The beginning of the MV starts in winter and ends with entering spring. Entering adulthood may seem scary at first but it gets better. It also symbolises the passing of time and change.
“No season can last forever”
Shoes Jimin is shown with a pair of shoes in the beginning and end of the MV. We don’t know who they belong to. I previously thought they belonged to a dead member (Jin) but they might be Jimin’s. Just like the clothes, he’s grown too big to fit into the shoes (they represent his youth). At the end, he hangs up his shoes as closure, and a way to finally move on and accept that he cannot remain in “youth” anymore.
Omelas/Motel Omelas is portrayed as a motel in the MV. A motel symbolises all things temporary. You go there but don’t stay there forever. Also, the motel has no vacancies, so there is no room in “paradise” which may be youth. The boys realise they have to move on.
Rebelling BTS are shown having food fights and messing up a room. Jin also pierces Jimin’s ear with a safety pin. These can all considered acts of rebellion, something most teenagers do. This also symbolises the themes of youth, coming of age and adulthood.
Group We are made to believe Jungkook is alone in the train but it’s revealed that the best of BTS are with him. Also, Jimin is with the group when he hangs up the shoes. Just like the album title, this may represent that even though it seems you’re alone, you’re not. Everybody experiences childhood and the struggles of leaving it. You Never Walk Alone. <3
The difference in intimidation between these two is staggering.
#srsly tho the set up and dialogue and tension in these scenes are FANTASTIC #THIS small moment alone is gr9 #Tarkin barely budges as krennic is stomping towards him in fury #while krennic almost turns into a shuffling flustered mess of a boy as tarkin just casually strides towards him #tarkin has faced actual monsters head on in his youth #this boy is nothing
