Kyungsoo watches the kids play outside by the window. It’s raining and the kids are out playing under the rain. To say that he’s okay staying indoors is a lie, because he wants to go out and play with the kids too. But not just that, he also wants to experience how it feels like to have the droplets of rain soak him up from head to toe. However, her mom refuses to allow him to play under the rain in fear of him getting a cold right after.

But Kyungsoo just wants to play.

Envious of the other kids, Kyungsoo hides himself by burying his face on his arms laden on the window sill. The kids are splashing water on each other, skipping on the puddles, playing tag and spraying water gun on each other’s heads, but Kyungsoo could only sigh.

But when he lifts his head to see what the kids are up to this moment, Kyungsoo spots the new kid near their yard, crouched down while watching something on the ground. He doesn’t know his name yet, because the new kid just moved the previous day.

Taking a careful look towards the lonely boy in front of their yard, Kyungsoo saw him poking his stick on something floating in the puddle of water on the ground, until he sees a paper boat floating on it. Kyungsoo starts to wonder where the boy got his paper-like boat, so he calls him.

“Yah! Yah! Where did you get that boat?”

The other kid raises up his head, but then turns to his paper boat floating. However, the paper boat sinks and his shoulders sag.

“Hey! Talk to me!” Kyungsoo keeps on calling, but gasps when he sees the paper boat becomes a soggy mess on the puddle. “What happened? What happened! Why did it sink? Tell Kyungie! Tell me!”

The boy looks up at him and then runs closer to his window. However, a fence blocks his way to get closer to Kyungsoo.

“It’s a boat made from paper! I made it, because I want to be a captain of a ship like my Papa one day, but it sank!” The boy who was timid seconds ago, speaks up in answer.

“You made it?” Kyungsoo can’t believe it. He hasn’t known a paper can become a boat.

“I did! Papa, taught me how to make it!” The drenched boy answers, nodding his head firmly.

“Whoa! I want to have a paper boat too!” Kyungsoo finally kneels on his stool where he was just sitting earlier, half of his body is now on display before the kid’s eyes.

The kid’s lips tug up into a wide smile as he jumps in excitement, his eyes shining brightly. “Do you want to make paper boats with me later, then?”

“Yes! Yes! Teach me how to make paper boats!” Kyungsoo jumps in excitement too, not minding how his knees would hurt from his movement.

“Okay!” The boy gives him two thumbs up and another huge smile. “But what can I call you?”

“I’m Kyungsoo, Captain!” Kyungsoo giggles and makes a salute that he sees from the drama his mom loves to watch on T.V.

The boy giggles in return. “Aye! Call me Jongin!” He makes a salute as well. “Kyungsoo! I’ll go back home first to shower then I’ll come back here so we can play!”

“Okay, Okay! See you later, Captain Nini!”

“See you!” Jongin waves happily and runs away.

Kyungsoo might not have a chance to play in the rain, but making paper boats sounds more fun and exciting to him now.

I just saw this on Reddit today and I wanted to share it here.

When you’re a parent, you have to realize that the child you brought into this world is going to be their own person and you’ll have to start getting into things you may not understand and have ZERO interest in.

However, you damn well better act like you are.

I can still remember the feeling as a kid getting Pokemon Red and it being something I loved so much, so I wanted to share that with my mom. I wanted to show her my team, tell her about the gym leaders I took down, and she just took a glance at the Game Boy color and went “mmhhhmm”.

She gave zero shits when I beat Banjo-Kazooie, a game which was INCREDIBLY hard for grade school me and you can make me have war flashbacks if you so much as say “Rusty Bucket Bay”.

My town in Animal Crossing? Catching rare fish? Who cares?

I liked a cartoon series so much that I wrote little stories about it? “No, I don’t want to read it.”

This type of stuff matters to kids so damn much and she’ll never realize how much it hurt our relationship. It might not seem like a big deal she never sat down and watched me play something like Luigi’s Mansion, but that’s how kids try and bond with their parents.

After constantly being shot down they’ll eventually stop talking to you entirely.

Hit Korean boy band BTS is ready to take over Anaheim

Rap Monster, one of the seven guys in the South Korean boy band BTS, says it was only at the end of 2016 that he and the others realized how huge their band had become around the world.

“Somebody in the company sent me a message: ‘You got No. 26 on Billboard OMG congratulations,’” says Mr. Monster, the 22-year-old rapper born Kim Nam-joon, by phone from Chicago where BTS was set to play on Thursday before hitting Honda Center for a pair of sold-out shows on Saturday and Sunday.

“At first I thought, 'Ha ha, your humor isn’t really very good,’” says Rap Monster, the leader of the group and its primary songwriter. “We didn’t believe it.”

But as more messages started to ping onto their phones he says the BTS boys realized it was no joke: Their sophomore album, “Wings,” entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 26 after its October release, making it the highest chart position for any K-pop act – not to mention one that sings primarily in Korean – and offering a bit of foreshadowing for Billboard naming the record the best K-pop album of the year.

Since then things have only gotten sunnier for Rap Monster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. In February, “Wings” was re-released in a new edition as “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and the combined editions have since sold nearly 1.5 million copies worldwide. Music videos for “Spring Day” and “Not Today” were released a week apart last month as well and exploded on YouTube where they’ve currently racked up 59.2 million and 60.1 million views respectively.

“When we heard that and really got that, I was saying, 'OK, this is going to be a whole other world,’” Rap Monster says of the significance of the Billboard chart success and all that followed. “And I feel like we should do something more, and dream something more.”

This past week they’ve taken a step toward something more, playing their first headlining and sold-out arena dates in the United States, after previously having mostly played on multi-artist billings at KCON conventions held here.

“So many people just to see BTS was really an honor,” Rap Monster says of the opening pair of shows at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. “It feels dreamy these days.”

Not, mind you, that it’s been anything like an overnight success or an easy road for him and the other BTS members.

He grew up a top student in his school who loved American rappers such as Eminem and Nas, performing even as he attended high school and eventually catching the attention of BTS future manager Bang Si-hyuk at BigHit Entertainment in South Korea. And though he says he gave up on music when he was 16, lacking confidence in where he was headed, he says Bang encouraged him to stay strong, believe in himself, and sign on as the first to join BTS, even though at the time he wasn’t sure who or what it would end up incorporating.

“I was not aware of the other members,” Rap Monster says. “But I like the company and I respect them. And he promised to me, 'I will make you do your music and get big someday, so please believe me.’

"So I believed him.”

The other six members soon were selected, each of them bringing different talents on the mic or on stage. Songs were developed by Rap Monster and the other members, with a team of producers working to craft the best music from the raw material, the melodies and beats, that they created.

“Our chemistry is different from other groups,” Rap Monster says. “Everyone has their own points and characteristics. If I’m a bad dancer, a good dancer teaches me. If I’m a good songwriter, I help the others with a good melody.”

We ask the obvious question: Are you a bad dancer?

He laughs and answers: “Yes, I’m a bad dancer.”

Their music is different from a lot of K-pop acts that have made ripples on the American airwaves. They’re not popular because of the novelty aspect of their songs – think “Gangnam Style” by Psy from a few years back. And they’re not quite as bubblegum as a group such as Girls Generation or as eclectic as the synthpop of f(x), the first Korean band to play the South By Southwest festival.

Instead, BTS often aims for that sweet spot where R&B and rap get together, the kind of stuff Justin Bieber might be doing if he sang in Korean and there were six Bieber variations with fashionable hair and eclectic yet unified fashion choices.

“BTS music sounds like it’s from America,” Rap Monster says. “We decide to always watch the trends and watch what’s going on over the world. America’s the No. 1 market in the world so that’s why people in America prefer us.”

As for communicating through the language divide, Rap Monster says that’s partly handled by the group’s wildly enthusiastic social media following: “Fans translate our lyrics and interviews,” he says of a following that has landed them at the top of Billboard’s Social 50 list for a total of 17 weeks since “Wings” dropped in October. “They’re able to say, 'OK, BTS is talking about us and our lives.’”

And it’s partly addressed through lyrical subjects that express the common hopes and dreams and fears and worries of any teenager or young adult in any country.

“Our lyrics are mostly Korean but we always talk about the young people’s lives and their minds,” Rap Monster says. “There’s something similar between every young person in the world, in America or in Korea. We share something together even if we use different languages or live so far.”

American fans are also the savviest music lovers in the world, Rap Monster says, which made heading out on this brief headlining tour a little bit intimidating at first.

“We actually were scared of performing in America as a solo act,” he says. “Their playlists are the best in the world. I was really nervous for them.

"But after we were on stage our fear disappeared. They’re like everybody, they’re like friends. Singing along all of the lyrics even through the raps. They know how to play, the rhythms and the dances.”

An aside here to share our favorite piece of Rap Monster trivia. You might be wondering whether he spoke through a translator. He did not. His excellent English skills were polished in the classroom but also at home through what he refers to as “a Korean mothers syndrome.”

“'Friends’ was really famous for the mothers in Korea for English education,” Rap Monster says of the hit American sitcom from the '90s. “It was kind of like a syndrome. Korean mothers make their kids watch 'Friends’ even when they were eating food or playing.

"I think it really helped. It has like 10 seasons, I think, and I watched it like more than five times through the 10 seasons. They use the gestures and expressions, like, Americans use, right? I think that naturally teaches me how to speak or how to make a gesture when you try to express some emotions.

"Thank you, 'Friends,’” he says, laughing. “God bless 'Friends’!”

Rap Monster recently collaborated with the American rapper Wale on the song “Change,” which like some of BTS’ other songs – and unlike most K-pop – touches on politics and societal issues. He says he’d loved Wale’s music for a few years when the opportunity to do the song came along last year “like a miracle, like a dream come true.

"The song has already come out and we shot a music video together, but still sometimes I lie in my bed and think, 'Did I really do something with him?’” Rap Monster says.

He knows that boy groups from Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync to the Jonas Brothers and One Direction tend to have a finite lifespan before members get restless to move on solo projects, acting gigs and other opportunities. But he thinks the variety of interests and musical genres that individual BTS members have can be handled on the side or even within the group, and BTS itself can carry on.

So while Rap Monster says he’d love to collaborate with Drake or Miguel one day, Suga feels the same way about Kanye West and Flume. Jungkook seems more inclined toward pop R&B – his dream musical partners would include Bieber or Charlie Puth. V is a little bit old school, having mentioned Norah Jones and the Fugees as on his wish list. Rap Monster ticks off the rest of the band: Jimin digs Chris Brown, J-Hope is into the similarly initialed J. Cole, and Jin is a fan of old-school showman Bruno Mars.

“I always tell them that every time we have hits under the name of BTS we shine the best when we are a team,” Rap Monster says. “I know all the seven members, they love music, and I know their No. 1 wish is for us to perform and make music and sing and dance.

"Maybe someday someone will want to be on a television show or be an actor,” he says. “I just hope they know all of the popularity and fame and money is from the name of our team. That’s not one person, everybody contributes to the team.

"Nobody knows the future. I just hope it can last as long as possible.”

The Paladins and Puppies

- Blue went and got the puppies from Earth because Lance was sad

-There’s a big litter of floofs in the lion when she returns, the puppies all under their Mama, who is in the pilot seat

- Allura: “Paladins! The blue lion has returned!”
Lance: “Blue, girl, what were you doing?”
Blue: *puppy noises*

- Lance opens her up right away and almost starts crying when all the tiny puppies come gently tumbling out.

- He calls the rest of the team to come see the miracle.

- Hunk is scared of hurting the puppies but they sure aren’t scared of him

- Keith didn’t see dogs that often, but the tiniest of the litter takes a liking to him and he loves it instantly.

- Shiro befriends the mother and they watch their kids play together

- Lance is laying on the floor and just letting the puppies surround him, trying to convince Hunk it’s okay

- “See, Hunk, you just gotta-” *gets lovingly attacked*

- That actually makes Hunk feel better

- Pidge is in quiet tears holding puppies in her lap because she’s reminded of Gunther and these puppies are such a comfort

- Allura and Coran are confused but also excited because it reminds them of a more deadly thing they had on Altea and Allura is getting glomped

Tl; dr: Paladins and Puppies

you know what really fucking grinds my gears? the fact that amazing organizations like You Can Play can spend so much time, money, and effort doing their best to make hockey inclusive - they can get players to use rainbow tape, they can have players and coaches release statements, they can encourage players to speak up against homophobia - but all of that means jack shit when a kid can still be watching his favorite team play and see some douchebag like andrew shaw using the f-slur. i know it was a while ago, and i know he apologized, but that doesn’t undo the fact that, no matter how hard YCP works, kids will still see shit like that and think “yeah, it still happens on the ice” or “yeah it probably happens in the locker room.” it’s fucking bullshit that so many people can work so hard just so that people aren’t scared to play hockey and be open about their sexuality, and some dumbass can fuck it all up in .2 seconds bc he didn’t agree with a fucking tripping call.

Summery: Theo finally has some fun with his childhood crush


“Hey, you want a ride?” Theo called as he spotted you walking home alone. “Come on, we live right next door it’s not like it’s out of the way.”

He growled to himself when you shyly shook your head and hurried away. He liked to think he’d moved on from pre-school, but here he was, feeling like he was back in first grade. Except now you were hot and didn’t have any building blocks for him to knock over.

He made such an idiot of himself in first grade, tiddling after you, stealing toys and pulling your pigtails in utter desperation to get your attention. He would forever be sat on the naughty step watching other kids play with you, his best friend and neighbour, simply because he’d not wanted to share you.

Theo let his mind run over his most recent daydreams as he stopped at a red light. There was no doubt in his mind you’d be submissive, the scent of complains clouded his head every time he passed you in the corridor, making it hard not to just throw and arm over your shoulder and steer you to an empty class room.

The park had a piano and a rose covered gazebo! 🎹🌷

@sixpenceee I don’t remember because I was so young, but when I was 3 I fell into a bucket filled with water and drinks. No one noticed me because they were watching a boxing match and all the kids were playing, but my mom had a feeling she should check on me. If she never had that feeling i would’ve drowned. She thinks it was a sign from God. I guess that’s what 3-year-old me gets for wanting a cold Dr. Pepper
