well i happen to find it hilarious

EXO’s Reaction to You Dropping Your Ice Cream


Xiumin would start at the sound of you yelling out in pain. He’d turn around, his eyebrows raising in surprise at the crime scene before him. “Jagi, how could you,” he’d say softly, gazing down at the fallen ice cream before him in mourning.


Unimpressed to say the least, Chen would shake his head at fallen soldier before him. “I’m not buying you another one,” he’d say, though he’d let you sip his shake occasionally to appease you.


You’d let out an overdramatic scream as your ice cream tumbled to the ground. Without looking at you, Baekhyun would scream as well–though he didn’t know why he was. When he saw what had happened he’d let out another, more sad scream, ignoring the looks he got from people.


Chanyeol would find this horrific event hilarious, not even bothering to hide his laughter from you. When he saw how saddened you looked, he’d try to control his giggles and buy you another one, feeling (somewhat) bad for you.


Lay would assume the worst when he heard you yell. Once he saw that you had dropped your ice cream, he couldn’t help but chuckle at your overdramatic reaction. “No worries, jagi, I’ll getcha a new one,” he’d say, patting your head like a child.


D.O would definitely be judging you by the fact that you had dropped your ice cream within five minutes of having it. He’d get you a new one, but he’d show you how to hold it, being extra about demonstrating. “Here, hold it like thiiiis.”


Of course this was a perfect opportunity for Suho to make a dad joke. Of course. He’d wrap his arm around you and pull you close before whispering in your ear, “It’s okay–I’ll let you lick my ice cream cone tonight.” You’d hit him in the arm for such a ridiculous joke, but needless to say you’d end up taking him up on that offer.


Already giggling at something you had said, Kai would laugh even harder when he saw the former ice cream cone lying dead on the pavement. “J-Jagi…what did you do?” he’d ask between fits of laughter. Though he’d buy you another one, he’d never let you live it down.


Sehun wouldn’t even look over at you when you scream–it wasn’t until you tugged on his arm that he looked at the warzone before him. “Okay,” is how he would respond, fighting to keep a straight face. He’d occasionally you have a bite of his, but wouldn’t bother going back and buying another one.

Reaction to Losing You in the Mall…

A/N these two are very similar, so i combined them. I hope that’s okay. and thank you so much second Anonnie~ and i totally get what you mean first Anonnie, If I could, i would get lost going to my living room lol. ALSO, a lot of requests are coming in, so I’m working my hardest, so please be patient! but keep them coming in! ‘cause I’ll DEFINITELY get to yours. 

Kai ~


You had this poor boy worried so hard for a good 30 minutes of him walking around trying to find you. He even talked to the staff in the mall and was about to ask the mall cops to go find you, however he caught a glimpse of you and quickly walked over to you while calling out your name. He would be pissed at first, because he really thought the worst had happened to you. However, after you explain that you saw a new ice cream shop and got you two some ice cream from there, his heart would melt at the thought that you were thinking of him and trying to do something nice for him. He would thank you, but tell you not to wander off like that because it’s not good for his heart. He would then make sure to keep you close to him and keep a close eye on you for the rest of the visit at the mall.

He is having none of this. This has happened one too many times. 

D.O.: “I don’t know why she does this, this always happens. When I find her she better get her little disappearing, hide-n-go-seek, Casper the Friendly Ghost ass in the car, ‘cause I am having none of this. Not today.”

Jk, honestly, he would act smart and call you and if that didn’t work, he would just simply re-trace his steps to find you. Though throughout the whole time, he would be extremely worried about your well being, hoping that you are safe and not scared. Once he found you he would take you home where neither of you can get lost.


This would be hilarious, that is… for anyone watching the scene unfold. He would freak out and be over-the-top worried about you. He would search every floor and store for you. He would be a clumsy giant, tripping over things, bumping into people and display stands in stores. He would have his phone out, waiting for you to call him, but not thinking that, hey, maybe I should try calling her? ‘Cause he would be too much of a mess to think logically. He would be searching in the food court, when suddenly he sees you on the second floor.

Chanyeol: “I’m lost… Where you at…? Y/N!?”

Originally posted by mylordae


He would attempt to look for you, like really hard, but after an hour of searching, he would mentally and physically tired, and just wanting to go home. He would have tried calling you, texting you, calling the boys and seeing if you tried calling any of them. He would be sitting on a bench, when just by coincidence you would be walking by. He would be soooooo happy to see you and would jump up and run to the other side of the mall to you so you guys don’t get separated again. He would pull you into a big loving hug asking you how your little adventure was and if you were okay.

Xiumin: (Gif is little XiuXiu happily waddling running towards you when he spots you.)

This poor boy would be completely confused, and in a sense, in his own way lost. When he first notices you’re lost, guilt would overflow him. He would think how horrible of a boyfriend he is that he allowed you to get lost. He would also be worried about whether you were scared or mad at him for letting this happen. However, after half an hour of searching for you, he would begin to wonder if you’re really the one that is lost, or if he’s the one that’s lost.

Lay: “Wait, is she lost? Or am I?”

Originally posted by laygion


Chen would find this hilarious and would take his sweet time looking for you. He would be looking through clothes in stores, he would try samples of food that were given out. It would take a loooong time for you two to meet up because of his blasé attitude of the whole situation. Eventually would you find him, and he would be trying out a gourmet chocolate while chatting happily with the young man holding the tray. When you walk up to him he would simply turn to you with a smirk and say, “Oh, Jagi, did you have a good adventure, here try some Swedish chocolate. It’s really good.” He would offer you a tiny paper cup with a square of chocolate like nothing happened.

All he would care about is your safety. He would be pretty calm about the whole situation though, I mean, you’re in a mall, how much danger could there be? Also, eventually you would run into one another, so he’s not too worried. If you were out in town, then he would be more concerned, but instead he just keeps his phone out in case you try to call while he texts you asking where you are. When he finds you he wouldn’t make a big deal about it, knowing that you’re old enough to care for yourself and he doesn’t need to treat you like a kid. Also, this happens quite a bit, and every time you’re okay. He would simply take your hand while asking what store you would like to go to next.

Surprisingly, he would get a little upset about this. He wouldn’t be annoyed, he would just be worried about you and your well being. He would take it seriously in trying to find you. He would text and call you non-stop, hoping that you would answer and be okay. When he finally finds you, it would be like getting a stern talk from your mother. He would tell you how dangerous it can be to wander off on your own, especially when you get lost so easily like yourself. He would then take the liberty of holding your hand for the rest of your outing, not wanting to take the chance of you getting lost again.

You would be out with Luhan and Lay one day and would get separated pretty quickly. So the two boys would spend about an hour trying to find you, eventually giving up and deciding to sit on a bench and wait for you to find them. It would take another whole hour for you to find them, and when you did they would give you that look (cue gif). While Luhan asks, “You had fun on your nice little outing Jagi?” What that really means is, “Bitch where you been? We don’t have time to play your little hide-n-seek games today.” He would then proceed to hold your hand the rest of the outing.

Originally posted by milkshakecennetinden


He would be ready. Like, anyone who saw his face would know something was up. He wouldn’t be mad at you or frustrated, he would just be ready to kick some if he saw you in any kind of danger. He would had a cold exterior, but on the inside he would be dying with each passing minute that you weren’t there by his side. Once he got you, he would ask if anyone bothered you while you were on your own. 

Tao: “Anyone bother you? Touch you?”

Y/N: “No, no one bothered me.”

Tao: “What about that guy? He looks suspicious.”

(yasss Tao, look at him with that metal pole, so sexy and intimidating)

Sehun would be scared for himself. He would be worried about how he would get home, if he was really the one who was lost, would you be mad at him for losing you, would you be making him dinner tonight or no because you would be pissed he lost you? All those things would be running through his head, and while he’s looking for you, he would kind of resemble a child who’s lost and looking for his mother. Once he found you though, he would be elated and so happy. One, because he’s no longer alone and can get home safely, and two because he actually missed you and really needs you, and this helped him realize that.

Gif: (Shy little Sehun when he realizes he needs you and actually relies on you for a lot.)

He would be another rational thinker, calling you and texting you. However, he would be really worried for your sake, he knew how often and easily you get lost, and thoughts of you being scared and worried would be running through his head. He would mistake girls for being you out of him desperately trying to get you back into that safety of his presence. Once he found you he would pull you into a big warm hug, kissing your forehead once and asking if you were alright. He would ask you not to do that again, for both his sanity and your safety. He would proceed to hold your hand for the rest of the outing.

The Spones fandom is made up of some of the most talented people but is tiny and in need of more content. Due to this fact, there are significantly less Spones fics so I searched extra hard to compile a good, lengthy list of fics.. and somehow managed to find way more fics than I did for my Mckirk one?? Why am I such trash, help I need a life.

(Listed alphabetically: ** = favourite)

Addressed to the Damn Doctor by ElloPoppet | 2.5k, T

Spock writes McCoy a letter of confession, despite not quite knowing how to write a love letter. (A super sweet insight into Spock’s mind, especially on his thoughts on the Enterprise’s resident doctor.)

Best Medicine for the Worst Patient by gammadolphin | 8.5k, T

It’s a special kind of hell, becoming obsessed with the laughter of a man who barely even smiles unless he’s high or dying of blood loss. Leonard doesn’t handle it particularly well. (A hilariously frustrating fic in which Bones becomes a little too obsessed with trying to hear Spock laugh just once more.)

Blues March by IntuitivelyFortuitous | 7k, T

Leonard McCoy sees his friends bleed. He loves the blood when it is inside them, flushing their cheeks and warming their skin. When it colors his hands on the operating table, he can think of little but the time he has with them, and a minute is too long to waste. He’s not going to let Spock get away that easily. (Gruesome and sad yet somehow really sweet.)

The Body by therev | 13k, T

McCoy’s consciousness is transferred into an android body after a fatal accident. Spock helps him remember the man he used to be. (Wow a really creative and fascinating fic that could have gone totally wrong if it hadn’t been written by such a talented author.)

           “No, Mr. Harris,” I say in a snarky drawl, “Contrary to what you seem to believe Beacon Hills is not the most interesting place I’ve ever lived. I spent 2 years living in China, 8 months in the heart of the dense jungle surrounding the Amazon River, and 3 weeks trekking across the Sahara Desert. So I’m curious as to why you seem to be under the impression that your quaint little suburbia has any form of fascination for me.”

           Mr. Harris flushes with embarrassment and mumbles something about how today’s youth doesn’t appreciate the simplicity of a quiet town before he quickly walks away from me. I hear a snicker from somewhere behind me to the left, and I turn slightly to see who it’s coming from. Out of the corner of my eye I notice a pale boy, his cheek and neck dotted with a few moles, his dark brown hair completely disheveled and his hazel eyes are flickering with amusement.

           I bet if she knew all the freaky shit that happened around here she’d be a little more impressed by it.

           I quirk an eyebrow at the response, my interest peaked, and I continue to listen and find myself growing increasingly more amused by what he comes up with as class continues.

Honestly everyone should watch Powerless.  I’ve seen it around on tumblr but I don’t actually know anyone myself who watches it but it’s just great.  Normally I don’t like it when shows hint at big name superheroes being around but they don’t actually show up visually (aka Agents of SHIELD bc an ABC show cannot afford RDJ) but this show does it well.  I find the cast to be genuinely interesting and likable, and they dry-humor, almost mocking tone it has towards the big name superheroes is great.  Like there’s a Fantasy Superhero league in one episode.  They comment on female superhero stereotypes in an attempt to destroy them.  They normalize having disasters happen all the time because of supervillains and it’s hilarious.

Like.  In the first episode Bruce Wayne texts his cousin Van Wayne to stop using his HBO GO account.  It’s just great.

  • Percival: "After you."
  • Theseus: "I don't think so."
  • Theseus: "I don't let anyone walk behind me. Seven out of ten attacks are from the rear."
  • Percival: "Okay. Well that still leaves a thirty percent chance I'll attack you from the front."
  • Theseus: "Uh. Yeah. But then it'll be easier to stop. I'll block the blow. Or I'll counter it-"
  • Percival: Slaps him across the face. Walks away.
  • Theseus: Undignified squawk of offense.
(Not So) Tough

Hey guys,
hope you all had/have a great day! Enjoy reading and please let me know what you think. Love you! xx

Pairing: Betty Cooper x Reader

Words: 645

I walked into my room, surprised that Veronica was sitting on my bed. “Eh, hey, Ronnie. What are you doing here?”

“Hey,Y/N, did you see or hear anything of Betty?”, Veronica asked worried. Her brown eyes filled with concern. “Why? What happened?” I looked into her eyes, confused because you heard nothing of her. “Well, you know we went to look for the playbook thing last night, right?” I nodded, not sure what she was about to tell me. “Yeah, erm we found out that Polly’s name was written in it. Betty was pretty shocked by it and now she doesn’t answer any of my texts or calls”

“Shit”, I breathed, feeling the anger bubbling inside of me. Trying to calm myself down I took some deep breathe. Now was not the right time to be angry, first I had to make sure that Betty’s alright. “Don’t worry. I’ll try to talk to her”, I mumbled, rubbing my temples. “What if she doesn’t want to talk to you?”, Ronnie asked with the same worried voice. “I guess, we’ll find out soon” I said, picking up my phone and texting her.

Hey, Bets
Meet me at Pop’s

“So, do you want to come with me or are you planning to stay in my bedroom?”, I laughed, trying to hide the worry I was feeling, while I grabbed my jacket. 


“I’m going to sit with Jughead”, Veronica decided, making her way over to Jug’s usual booth. I didn’t really mind since I wanted to talk to Betty alone. “Wasn’t sure if you really would come”, I smiled softly, sitting across from her. Her head snapped in my direction. She swallowed and played with her fingers. “Why-why not?”, she asked, her voice not as steady as usual.

“Ronnie told me what happened”, I said unsure of how she’ll react. My eyes scanning her face, worry written over my face. Betty breathed out. “I don’t want to talk about it”, she muttered, looking everywhere but at me. “Betty, it’s okay to feel sad. It’s okay to be angry. Don’t bottle everything up. You need to let it out” I took her hand and squeezed it slightly.

“I’m just so.. Why did nobody tell me what really happened?”, she whispered. Her voice sounds hurt and disappointed. “It’s not just that no one bothered enough to tell me the truth. It makes me so angry that boys like Reggie and Jason are treating girls like that. They act like women are just objects, like women are nothing. I’m just so sick of guys thinking they can do any and everything with girls just because they’re popular”

“Yeah, I get that, believe me, I really do but please stop hiding your feelings. It won’t make anything better.” I still held her hand, not wanting to let go. “Wished I’d be more like you”, Betty mumbled, looking at the table. “What do you mean?”, I asked confused, wrinkling my eyebrows. My eyes searching for hers. “Nothing. You’re just so confident and it seems like you fear nothing. You’re so strong and I don’t know, you can handle these kind of situations a lot better than me” She sounded embarrassed, a light blush forming on her cheeks.

“Bets, don’t say such things. You’re one of the most confident and strongest person I know. You don’t need to be like me, I like you just the way you are. And believe me I don’t handle situations like these well, I just don’t show my emotions”, I winked and laughed. Betty also cracked a smile and mouthed a ‘thank you’. “So the tough and sassy Y/N isn’t as tough and sassy as she pretend to be. Interesting”, Jughead laughed. He and Veronica sat down next to us. “Oh, shut up, Jones”, I stuck my tongue out.

Preference "How they react when they hear you sleep talking"

(Firstly sorry for posting so late, I got busy :( and secondly sorry if some seem similar I just couldn’t find other ways for them to react XD So i really tried my best to make them all different. PS. They’re talking to themselves XD Gifs not mine/found them on google/credit to the original owners.)

Negan-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d have the reflex to always answer you immediately whether you say something weird or not. However, he’d then realize something off and shift to your side to look at you super closely. He’d then realize his mistake and start laughing to himself. “Fucking shit…Y/N…you’re at it again…talking in your sleep…Here I thought you wanted to keep me company…whatever that doesn’t mean I can’t hug you…”

Daryl-When he hears you sleep talking, at first he wouldn’t be too sure of what was happening. He’d wondered if you were awake and turn to your side of the bed to wave his hand in front of you and spend quite some time inspect you. When he’d realize you were asleep, he’d end up smiling and tuck you in even more. "Seriously, Y/N…what kind of grown up talks to themselves in their sleep…you’re a weird one…but I still love you…”

Rick-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually wake up just to listen to whatever you have to say. Sometimes it made him laugh, even making it hard for him to control it but sometimes it was just sweet it and melted his heart. He’d then just turn over to your side and wouldn’t be able to keep himself from smiling and getting closer to hug you and kiss your cheek. “Even in your sleep you’re sweet Y/N…and you love me so much…I must be lucky to have you…”

Merle-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d end up not sleeping for most of the night. As soon as he’d hear you he’d turn over to check you and grin to himself as he’d get closer to you. He’d start to talk back to you, questioning you about whatever he wants to hear, usually questions about your feelings for him or just about your sexual fantasies. “Oh…so what else do you like about me? Actually no…Y/N…I want you to be real honest here…what’s dirtiest thing you want me to do to you…”

Glenn-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d start to laugh and just try his best to keep it in. He’d find it adorable that you did that in your sleep and would just want to pinch your cheeks but hearing you say weird things would just make him laugh more than anything else. “What the hell Y/N…How can you be as hilarious asleep as you are awake…Great now I can’t sleep because of you…”

Carl-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually be asleep as well. You would usually be both sleep talking to one another and it seemed to always happen when one of you start it. It would make everyone else around laugh and try to join in so you’d both just say weird and regretful things. “Y/N…you’re just jealous…of me…cause of my hat…I see you looking at it…But i’m not giving it sorry…”

The Governor-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d find it adorable and just shift on the bed to get closer to you. He’d listen trying to figure out what was happening in your mind and wouldn’t be able to stop smiling whenever he realizes your having a dream about him. “Even in your dream I love you that much…good…it’s how it should be…”

Abraham-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d smirk to himself and try to carry a conversation with you. He knew it could get weird talking to you when you’re asleep but he’d just love it that way. He’d then end up spending most of the night propped up on one arm and just stare at you sleepily. “Goodness Y/N…how can you get this weird in your dreams…I always thought you were a sane person…”

Eugene-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d get startled and try to figure what was going on. He’d turn to you but still kept his eyes shut and just start to ramble along with you when your sleep talk just seems natural. However, once it gets weird he’d then just stop and awkwardly just wrap his arm around you. “I should’ve guessed you were asleep…man i’m such weirdo thinking you were talking to me at this hour…”

Ron-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d be able smile and laugh. To hear you, it was just another reason for him to feel a little happier and he’d end up whispering nice things about you in hopes you’d end up waking up as well. “I like you Y/N…I like the way you smile at me…the way you look at me…and I like everything else about you…”

Jesus-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d wake up and start to chuckle. He’d get closer to hear you and hug you from behind resting his head on you and sleepily answer back to you only to wake you up. “Yeah…I like you…I like you a lot actually…I mean there’s a reason we’re together…so yeah…oh you’re awake now!”

Dwight-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d slowly wake up smiling and jokingly cup your face as if to talk to you. He’d end up just staring at you, enjoying looking at your lips slightly moving to form words and he’d end up laughing at himself for doing what he was doing. “I’m sorry Y/N…I seem like a freaking weirdo…gosh why am i apologizing, you’re asleep and probably can’t hear me…”

Morgan-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d genuinely think you were awake talking to him and casually just start to answer. Sometimes it can get strangely deep but sometimes he realizes your answers were starting to get weird and that’s when he’d slowly turn to look. “Y/N? Y/N…damn it…again…i’m talking to you in your sleep…why do I keep doing this to myself…”

Shane-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually smile and turn over to you. He’d prop himself on one arm and start to stroke your hair hoping you’ll have a good sleep. However, whenever he realizes you were having a rather dirty dream he’d casually slip his hand under the blanket and into your pants. “Oh Y/N…I know what you need…”

Milton-When he hears you sleep talking, at first he’d tense up thinking you were angry about something as it was late at night but once he realizes you were saying sweet things about him, he’d get flustered. He’d try to stay still as much as he could and just want to listen to everything you have to say. “Y/N…really you think all that of me…even in your sleep you’re so kind…”

Aaron-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d start to laugh and wouldn’t be able to stop. Eventually it would end up waking you frustrated and him grabbing you just for a hug. He’d start to apologize and try to explain what had happen. “I’m sorry Y/N! It’s just really funny what you said! If only you could hear yourself you’d understand!”

Gabriel-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually seem to wake up whenever you were saying dirty things. He’d get startled and turn away from you, closing his eyes. However, realizing you were mumbling to yourself about him he’d smile and just turn around to get closer for a hug. “You might be saying strange stuff Y/N…but at least it’s about me and not someone else…”

The Wolf-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d wake up in surprise and get up from the bed. He’d go to your side and look at you and start laughing when he realizes you were truly asleep. “What is this?! What kind of person sleeps and talks at the same time! You’re really weird Y/N…”

Noah-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d get a little worried thinking you had a fever or something and would always end up getting up checking your temperature. Once he realizes you’re fine, he’d feel at ease and be able to start laughing. “Well as long as you’re asleep it’s better than you being sick…”

Simon-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d start to laugh and wouldn’t even want to hide it. He’d sometimes even get up and go get every of his friends who were still awake and just get them to listen to whatever you had to say. “Hey guys! Y/N’s at it again…listen…yeah she’s hilarious even in her dreams…I got lucky like that…”

Ezekiel-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d start to chuckle and wouldn’t be able to resist just wanting to hug you and kissing you all over while trying his best to not just wake you up. “Y/N…You are unbelievable…How can an adult be as lovely and innocent like this…”

Benjamin-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d smile and scoot closer to you to hear you better.  He’d listen to everything you’d have to say and just feel at peace and at ease to hear you that no matter what you were saying he’d be able to fall back to sleep. “It’s good to hear your voice Y/N…I like it…”

Caesar-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d go check on you making sure you were fine and then chuckle realizing you were just asleep. He’d then just kiss you and go back to sleep. “Goodnight Muñeca…You should be asleep and sleeping…not keeping me awake…”

Michonne-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d approach you and wrap her arms around you. She’d be a little worried but hearing you saying silly things she’d smile and kiss your head before going to sleep. “You should be fully asleep at this hour Y/N…not rambling on…about little ridiculous things like this…”

Maggie-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d usually turn to look at you and wouldn’t be able to stop smiling and grinning. It made her laugh to hear you speak so much in her sleep and she’d end up falling asleep to the sound of your voice. “Even in your sleep you make me smile Y/N…if only you knew…”

Andrea-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d usually be sleepy herself and would end up talking to you. She wouldn’t even be sure if your were awake or not and just end up talking to you. “So that’s what I told him…Y/N if you were me..what would you do?”

Jessie-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d smile to herself and turn to check on your for a while before turning back to sleep. 

Beth-When she hears you sleep talking, she wouldn’t even realize it and just talk to you about everything and anything. She’d open up to you and slowly fall asleep. “Yeah…I don’t like it here…it’s not as comfortable as home used to be…you feel that way too, right Y/N?”

Sasha-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d turn over to you and look at you for a little while. She’d then smile and just get closer and stroke your hair before falling asleep next to you. 

Rosita-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d chuckle and feeling clever she’d start to ask you about your thoughts. She’d want you to tell her the dirt and your views on her and the others around and wouldn’t want to stop. “So what do you think of him? Do you like him? or do you like someone else? Tell me Y/N…:

Enid-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d get startled and wonder what was going on. She’d slowly look over to you and just start to chuckle and go back to sleep.

Tara-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d smile and chuckle. She’d get closer to you and hold you tightly against her and listen to everything you have to say. 

Carol-When she hears you sleep talking, she’d be able to genuinely have a good laugh about it and would have a hard time keeping it in. She’d then calm down and just look over at you ruffle your hair.

After a while (as all tragic things do) gansey and co. start finding ganseys death hilarious? It’s gansey that starts it - saying things like “well the third times the charm, Jane,” or “this is the worst thing that’s ever happened to me including the two times i died.”

Ronan is the first to catch up never missing an opportunity to be a little shit so like Blue will be being difficult at gansey and Ronan will just be like “I mean damn maggot you’ve already killed the kid let him buy an air hockey table if he wants to”

Adam surprises them with a joke too he’s in the middle of college applications and essays and aglionby school work and he leans back and let’s out a heavy sigh and goes “this actually might be more stressful than watching blue murder gansey”

They all start doing it “the night gansey was killed-” “stop telling people I’m dead” “sometimes we can still hear his voice” or “this is worse than gansey dying that one time” “which time?”

And then finally finally one day blue gives in and says “Richard Campbell Gansey the iii, if you don’t knock it off I’m going to kill you again”

And gansey laughs so hard at this it starts as a gentle eye crinkling laugh that dissolves into literal giggles

Somebody told me they have been waiting for my new review, and here it is. My previous ones are here, if you are interested: x
This will be slightly different from the others - and, I hope, not too long. Let’s see how it comes out. The chapter I’m going to review is… controversial among phans, and for a reason. Here are my thoughts.

Counterpoint: Erik and Christine, 1881.

First, I like the idea of Christine keeping a diary. But the first thing that bugged me was that, after her gala’s debut, the Angel - aka Erik - doesn’t even praise her pupil like we see in Leroux (“The angels wept tonight”) and in ALW (“Brava, brava, bravissima”). Kay’s Angel of Music is very cold and aloof, and while I don’t doubt that he is “very strict”, he seemed to me downright… cruel in his scenes towards poor Christine. She cries so much when he is angry that I felt great pity for the girl. I think that Erik builds a barrier between him and his student to defend himself from the anguish of a deadly desire he can’t control. It is his twisted way to “cope”.
Anyway, I couldn’t help but frown at this: basically Erik thinks to himself how much he wish he could kill Carlotta for the many times she made Christine cry. Erik, you great booby - you make her cry! Constantly. Isn’t he aware of this or is he just a hypocrite?
Keeping on reading, I had the feeling that the blame of Erik and Christine’s unsuccessful relationship would be on her, not the other way… I was not wrong. But first things first.
The “first kidnapping” here is clearly based on ALW: Christine is dragged down to the Opera dungeons by the enchanting voice of her not-so-angelic Master, clearly spellbound. And then, the unmasking, even more violent than its Leroux counterpart. No Christine protesting loudly (and bravely) about her kidnap, no Erik crying at her feet…
The first glimpse of the utter destruction of Christine’s character is seen in her dumbfounding passivity. Erik thinks of her as having a “fatal flaw, like a hairline crack in a vase” in her absolute dependency on the men in her life to survive. He thinks that her future husband would also need to act as her father, but that’s the point of Christine’s journey: letting go of the shadows of her past (mainly her deceased father, one of the many things that bond her to Erik) and become her own person. A metamorphosis that doesn’t happen here. I would have preferred if that “fatal flaw” would have been the constant quiet sadness within her (basically, her depression after her father’s death), a loneliness that make her more compassionate towards Erik’s. Because she defeats her “fatal flaw”, and that’s what makes her such an inspirational character. In Kay, I’m not in awe of her like in the original, or even in ALW.
Another thing that bothered me is how Erik calls Christine “child” constantly - and she doesn’t protest! If I were in her shoes, I would be furious. But this is only one way in which Erik shows her “belittlement” of Christine. So different from the way he puts her on a pedestal in Leroux - not less harmful, by the way.
Needless to say, their relationship is deeply unhealthy. Why? Because they’re not equals. Christine is addicted to Erik’s voice; she is submissive and doesn’t stand up for herself - she doesn’t even learn to over time. She’s just… there, object of the male protagonist’s desire. The spineless child doesn’t become “mistress of her own actions” here; and that’s a pity. I sensed so much wasted potential in these pages…
“And suddenly, without any warning, I [Erik] began to cry.” At least this is IC.
“I wish I were that cat!” Christine is jealous of a cat, y'all.
“Where once I was content to be a wilting marigold, I now aspire to the glorious height of the sunflower.” Yes, but by her own hand, not his. Erik gave her back her voice, and of course she will be forever grateful to him for that, but he’s not the sun. She is.
And because I lacked the courage of a rose, I could not set him free.” While the metaphor is quite beautiful, it’s also incorrect: the real problem is not Erik’s face. “It’s in your soul that the true distortion lie”: that’s why Christine can’t stay with him! This is not even mentioned in Kay: it’s like the main obstacle is his “haunted face” and that Christine cannot “overlook” that. But it isn’t. Even her relationship with Raoul is disfigured by the superficial appearance that the latter is a believable rival to Erik for Christine’s affection only because of his handsome features and his youth. That’s not true. Christine chose Raoul because he is not an unrepentant murderer a generous, sweet, brave boy that would risk his life to save Christine’s. She genuinely loves him, and that’s canon, I’m sorry.
And the real choice is not between Erik and Raoul: she chooses herself, her dignity. To let go of her past that makes her cling to Erik, a father-figure - “not more memories, not more silent tears, not more gazing across the wasted years.”
She’s the hero of the story: she saves everyone (including her abuser) with the greatness of her heart and sacrifice. That’s what makes her a glorious character. It’s like Kay misses a big point here.
Another thing that bugged me is how Christine doesn’t freak out when she finds out that she is the spitting image of Erik’s mother. In her shoes, God knows I would.
I won’t comment about the pornographic effects that Don Juan Triumphant makes on Christine; I’ll just let you imagine what would happen if Erik ever had the possibility to stage his opera… quite hilarious.
I’d raped her with music instead.” Again, no comment.

I have other 156890 things to say but I’ll stop here. You can guess that, while very well-written and lovely to read, I think that there’s something very wrong in this chapter, especially Christine’s characterization. We could have had a magnificent retelling, and instead… Of course, I’m not Jesus, this is only my humble opinion. Other phans are free to like anything that I somehow criticize. Someone loves Kay’s novel, someone else hates it, and I can understand both viewpoints.

My conclusion is that Susan Kay wants to do bad things with his Erik, and why I can’t blame her?

Thanks for reading! Even if you disagree with me, I’d like you to let me know your opinions. It would be an interesting debate! :)

This is something that I have been wondering about for a while, and since it is related to writing I decided to ask one of my favorite writing blogs...Is it wrong for guys to want to write romance? Not the steamy, rated R stuff, but rather the process of falling in love bit. I love action, adventure, and science fiction, but I always have romance intertwined in it. It is something my friends find hilarious and I can't help but wonder if it is really all that strange....

Okay, well here’s a representation of what happened when I read this:

*Runs down stairs in a rage, trips on bottom step and almost breaks ankle*

“Mum! You’ll never believe what someone said to my Anon!”

*Gripping phone tightly, mum stepping away a little due to my ‘minor’ freak out*

“Wh-what, Honey?”

*Reads the message and has to stop mid-way through because I’m too pissed*

*Heavy breathing*

And now, I’ve sat here and reread this ask about 8 times. Darling, Write whatever the f**k you want to write. Don’t feel bad because of your ask, that is not what I’m getting mad at. I’m mad because someone (or group of someone’s) was teasing and putting my anon down for writing romance. Write The Romance! No one has any right to tell you what to write, so don’t take it to heart. If they irritate you once more for writing romance, you let me know and I will be there asap to punch a few faces. Then we get coffee and write romance novels like total badasses, okay? I’m sorry for my anger, oh god, I hope I haven’t scared you all off… I just feel that things like this shouldn’t be stereotyped to one gender and no one should be hurt by someones words for doing something that they’re probably rather good at. And if you want to write smut, you damn-well write it. 

I love you all very much and if someone hurts any of you because of what you write or the way you write, I swear I will fly out to your hometown and start some shit. No kidding… Good luck with the romance writing and message me if you want someone to tell you good things about you and your writing. Lots and lots of love from Yasmine xox

Today, I fucked up by accidentally selling my students thongs.

Okay obligatory this didn’t happen today. It happened during my first year of teaching. I’m a little nervous about posting it as it’s rather identifying, buuuuuut oh well. I actually kind of forgot it happened until I mentioned it to some co workers today and they thought it was hilarious…

So, my first year of teaching. I graduate school in December and start teaching in January. Around Valentine’s, a measly six weeks in, I decide to set up a classroom store where the kids can buy innocent little things with points for good behavior.

I go to the dollar store and collect a bunch of cheapo gifts. One of the things I find is some little lace roses, wrapped in plastic like a real single rose would be. No markings or tags on it at all, I swear. I think it’ll be cute since it’s around Valentine’s. I figure maybe some of the boys will want to purchase them for gifts and the girls will purchase because it’s cute. Whatever.

I buy about 25 and sell them all. The kids love the classroom store. At the very end of the day, a student walks in bawling her freaking eyes out. She says her mom told her she couldn’t keep the rose. Huh??? She says her mom got the same gift from her boyfriend and so she knows what it is and made her take it back. I’m not understanding AT ALL, until finally the girl pulls out the once-rose and presents a red lacy thong. I’m dumbstruck. I think, “oh SHIT.”

I swear to you the roses had no markings or labels. I take it to my co workers. They laugh their asses off and say I need to go to the principal. Principal isn’t mad but asks who I sold to. I say, I don’t remember them all… Some boys bought to give as gifts from other girls. She says I have to call to let the parents know. She also suggests I no longer do a classroom store.

That’s how I end up calling about 80 parents six weeks into teaching to let them know I accidentally sold their child thong underwear.

The Best Q&A

(Sammy’s pov)
Y/N and I are at my house. We’ve been dating for about 5 months and we don’t live together but she’s almost always at my house or I’m at hers because we live pretty far apart. She’s in the kitchen fixing lunch while I’m on the couch watching tv. I look over at her just to see a beautiful view. My stunning girlfriend wearing my shirt, I love it when she wears my clothes. I dont know why, maybe it’s the fact that it assures me that she’s mine or maybe it’s because they’re huge on her and it’s cute. I just love her, but she doesn’t know that.
(Y/N pov)
I’m in the middle of cutting the sandwiches I made for Sammy and myself when I feel two arms snake around my waist. I giggle as Sammy starts to kiss my cheeks repeatedly. I turn around to face him, both of us smiling insanely. He goes in for a kiss but I quickly dodge it and dash for the living room. “Ooooh no you didn’t” he says as he chases after me. I laugh as I’m at one end of the couch while he’s at the other, both of us ready for movement. I look at the stairs, then Sammy figuring the distance was far enough to get by him. I quickly try to dash for the stairs but Sammy latches his arm around me throwing me on the couch. I spring up grabbing his arms and pinning him down on the couch, straddling him. Panting from all the sudden movement, we stare at each other for what seemed like an eternity. Until I loosen my grip on him and he sits up. Still straddling him from the previous position, I put my arms around his neck. He puts his hands on my waist.
(Sammy’s pov)
“Babe?” I ask Y/N who’s on my lap facing me, arms around my neck. “Yea?” She responds staring into my eyes. “Can I ask you something?” I say “yea of course” she responds hopping off my lap and on the the couch beside me. “So there’s this friend I have-” I clear my throat and continue, “so my friend he um, he’s been dating this girl for almost a year and uh-” I try to make not so obvious that I’m talking about myself, and Y/N and my’s relationship. “Mhm go on” she says putting her hand on my thigh “basically he was telling me that he likes her a lot” I say “I would hope so if they’ve been together for that long” she laughs. “Haha” I nervously chuckle and continue “well he said that he thinks- he knows he loves her and he doesn’t know if he should tell her or not because he doesn’t know if she feels the same way and he thinks the period of time in which they’ve been together is too short to pull that love card. So my question is what should I- what should I tell him to do?” I quickly finish. She looks me dead in the eye, it was like she was staring into my soul. She studies my face for a bit more until she starts to jump back into the conversation saying “well Sammy, my advice is. To tell your friend, that love has no due date, and there are some people who fall in love after the first hello-” she smiles and continues “so when he’s ready, he should tell her because I guarantee that she is in love with him too and has been waiting for him this whole time.” She finishes kissing my cheek and walking off to the kitchen. I start to think long and hard about what Y/N said. Until she arrives back with the sandwiches she made earlier. We proceed to eat and watch some tv, until the time comes where I have to go to the studio.
(Y/N pov)
Sammy and I finish eating. While I’m bringing the plates to the kitchen Sammy comes up from behind me again hugging me “ohhhhh not again” I say turning around to face him. “You know I’m still missing that kiss from earlier” he says wiggling his eyebrows, I look at the stove clock to see it’s about time for Sammy’s studio session. “Isn’t it time for you to go to the studio?” I ask, he looks at the clock and jumps “OH SHIT! FUCK, yeah” he races to grab his belongings while I finish cleaning up the kitchen. Once I’m done which was fairly quick, I see Sammy is about to leave. As I’m grabbing a water bottle from the fridge, Sammy grabs my butt spinning me around and smashing his lips into mine. He grabs my waist bringing me closer to him if that was even possible, after about 15 seconds we pull apart breathing a bit heavily. “Bye baby oh and when I come back we have to make a Q&A for my channel, the fans wanna see wassup” he says laughing a bit “Ok, I might have to go run a few errands, stop by my house and meet up with some people but I’ll be here by the time you come back” I say. He smiles and nods leaving off to the studio.
(Sammy’s pov)
*at the studio*
Johnson gets out of the booth once he finishes his verse, “that was straight fire bro!” I say giving him the handshake as he approaches me Skate and Gilinsky. “Yeah man this songs gonna be dope” Gilinsky adds on, we all agree as Skate gets the weed out starting to roll up a few joints. “Yo G how’s Madison?” I ask him “she’s good why do you ask?” He questions “well ahh I was just wonderin’, when did you tell her you loved her?” I ask him my head facing downward avoiding eye contact. “Ooohh looks like someone got bit by the love bug, not surprised” Johnson says “yeah yeah whatever” I say taking a hit from a joint Skate passed to me. “You think you love Y/N bro?” Gilinsky asks “I mean I know I do, it’s just I don’t know if it’s the right time and-” Gilisnky cuts me off saying “and if she loves you back or if it’s too early, trust me I’ve been there” he takes a hit continuing “let me tell you this, when I told Mads I loved her all the weight came off my shoulders, it was by far the best decision I’ve made. We were friends for a while and one day we sat each other down and I was just like look I’m in love with you. And she felt the exact same.” “yeah but Y/N and I haven’t been together that long, isn’t it too soon tell her I’m IN LOVE?” I say “so? If you love her now why wait?” Gilinsky says. Then Johnson chimes in saying “I guarantee she loves you back bro, it’s all about the connection and how you guys feel. I may be single but I know about love”. “Johnson does know wassup and that’s a whole fact” Skate says. “Soooo what should I do?” I ask them. They all look at each other for a second and then say “do what you think is right”. I sigh as we change the subject, yet Y/N is always on my mind. After about a three hour studio session I notice it’s about time for me to head home. “Alright guys imma head out” I say. “Aight cool see ya later Sammy” Skate says “see ya Wilk” Gilinsky says “let us know how that Y/N thing goes” Johnson says. Suddenly an idea pops into my head “bye guys” I say as I rush out the studio on my way home. I text Y/N to see if she’s at my place.
Me: baby u home?
Babe❤:at your place yeah
Babe❤: hurry!
Me:why what’s wrong??
Babe❤️: I miss you :(
(Y/N pov)
I was setting up everything for Sammy’s video when he walks in the door, panting as if he ran a mile. “Hey…Sam you good?” I ask confused “yeah,” he pants and continues “I’m just so excited for this Q&A, there are some great questions” he says “yea I started setting up the camera” I say gesturing to the camera. “Ohh I got that just sit riggggghhhttt here” he says placing me on the couch in front of the camera. He goes to turn the camera on adjusting it a bit until he comes and sits down next to me. “Ready?” He asks “yup” I smile and he starts the intro. “What’s up everybody it is your boy Sam Wilkinson and I’m here today with my girl Y/N” he says smiling at me throwing his arm around my shoulders. I smile at the camera as he continues “and today we are doing a Q&A which is what y'all asked for”. Sammy taps my shoulder slightly indicating that I should continue on “we got the questions off of Twitter by tweeting the hashtag ‘Ask Sammy&Y/N’ and thank you so much for trending WORLD WIDE, we appreciate the love and dedication, we love you all so much annnddddd first question Sammy?” I say and he starts. “What’s the worst thing that’s happened to you at a concert” he says chuckling. “Well, this one time-” I decide to cut him off “SAMMY FUCKING RIPPED HIS PANTS ON STAGE IT WAS HILARIOUS!” I yell laughing. Sammy being embarrassed, sticks his head in the crook in my neck and mumbles “stooopp, I wore these really tight pants and when I got on I was really hype and jumpy and….” he starts to fade out. “It’s ok baby it happens sometimes” I say but I gesture 'no it doesn’t’ to the camera, he’ll find that out once he starts editing. “And I had to go out on stage and help him get off without being exposed because keep in mind he ripped his underwear too, not that everyone hasn’t seen his nudes alrea-” Sammy cuts me off “OK OK that’s enough, next question”.
We get through many questions about tours and social media and the occasional relationship questions until some… unusual ones start to pop up.
(Sammy’s pov)
I decide after about 10min to start throwing in the serious questions. “What do you think about Y/N?” Y/N reads “Hmmm Sammy whatcha think about meh?” She adds on giggling. I smile and respond “I think you’re the most beautiful person I’ve ever laid my eyes on”. She smiles at me, as if for a moment she forgot we were supposed to be filming because we were staring at each other for what seemed like hours. I then decided to speak “in fact,” I pause and look at the camera “Y/N is the probably the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me” “oh stoooooopp” she says blushing “No, actually I have to say something.” I say looking at Y/N then the camera then back to her and I continue “Y/N, you are so goddam beautiful, like I don’t think you understand how fucking stunning you are. You’re always talkin’ 'oh Sam I look so ugly today or wow I wish I was as pretty as her’, bullshit. If you could see yourself for a day in the way everyone else sees you, I think you’d finally understand how fucking gorgeous you are.” “Sammyyyyyyy” she says putting her head in my chest out of embarrassment. “Wait baby I’m not done” I say as she lifts her head, her glistening eyes gazing into mine. “I hope you know that every time I tell you to text me when you get home, put on your seat belt, watch your step, stay warm, sweet dreams or have a good day what I’m really saying is I love you. I love you so damn much that it’s starting to steal other words meanings. I didn’t want to fall in love or need someone
I really didn’t want anything 6 months ago, but then you came along and I wanted everything. So Y/N I’m telling you that I Samuel Wilkinson am in love with you, and when I tell you this it’ll be a forever reminder that you are the best thing that has ever happened to me” I finally finish. From the moment I said the words 'I love you’ her eyes lit up, she engulfs me in the best hug. Not just any hug, one of those tight 'lift me up off the floor mama bear hugs’ the hugs were you can feel the other persons heartbeat and a sense of care and love flows. Still hugging me she speaks “Sammy, baby, my love. I’ve been waiting to hear those words for the longest time, ever since we met I’ve known we were special. That the way we talk and laugh around each other is different than everyone else, that I will never meet anyone I trust as much as I do you. And I think most people search their whole lives searching for the thing that we’ve already found.” She pauses and lets go from our previous hugging position, holding my hands “Truthfully I could talk to you all night and day and still have a billion words to say, but too many words become meaningless. So I’ll leave it at that you Samuel Wilkinson are the most wonderful person I’ve ever met, and I couldn’t imagine my life without you in it.” She finishes. We stare into each others eyes both smiling from ear to ear. It’s like we read each other’s minds when we both leaned in for a kiss.
(Y/N pov)
It was like our first kiss all over again, the rhythm perfect, the sensation of each others lips unimaginable. But there was one big difference, it was out of love and that had to be the best feeling in the world. After we break apart I turn around to see the camera still sitting there, I walk closer to it to turn it off. I look to see that the camera is already off. Confused, I look up to see a grinning Sammy looking back at me.

Good day! I am actually curious as to what rumor was the art done by jeusus based on? It got me going :o

Hi!! Oh man well recently I’ve gotten obsessed with reading a couple of Star Wars subreddits: Star Wars Leaks and Star Wars Speculation. Neither of them are great for discussion but they are reliably hilarious, usually in an unintentional way, and there is the occasional really thoughtful post that I love. And I’m finding it fun to try to keep up with all the rumors about the new movie…. I knew absolutely nothing about TFA going in, but in this case I need to like, emotionally prepare myself for whatever will happen, so I’m actively seeking spoilers this time around.

Most of what gets posted to these comms as “secret insider info” is total bullshit, of course, which to me is entertaining – recently someone showed up with alleged plot synopsis/outline spoilers, and they posted ACT I and got quite a bit of traction and enthusiasm in one of the communities, of the “could these be real??” variety. I took a particular interest in this because they promised to post ACT II and then ACT III, and one of their teasers about spoilers to come was “Hux has a secret.” !!!! (Usually the fake spoilers don’t bother to mention Hux lol)

SO, this person came back and posted their ACT II spoilers, and a lot of people thought those sounded less plausible and more lame. I figured since they got dumped on for that post they might not come back for more abuse, but a few days ago ACT III appeared at last, and Hux’s big secret was revealed….!!

And the secret was that Hux is a Palpatine…. Snoke crafts a black lightsaber for Hux (in scene??) and hands it over. 

When I got to this part of “ACT III” I busted out laughing at work. Jeusus’ beautiful artwork is more than Armitage Palpatine Hux, Wielder of the Darksaber deserves. But ngl I love this idea and want it to be a crack trope in fandom.

Thanks for asking!! Fake spoilers and wild theories are the kind of purehearted fandom nonsense I love. I was a big big fan of the RON IS DUMBLEDORE theory back in the day.

unpopular opinion: tybcutio seems unhealthy and doesn't make any sense

I agree.

People argue whether Tybalt meant to kill Mercutio or not, but what’s the difference? I don’t think staging it like an accident truly alters the meaning of the scene. Their duel serves to criticize how these young men find violence dangerously stimulating. The slightest form of provocation will be enough for them to fight. You know, we often find the thumb-biting dialogue hilarious, but it is actually brutal—even a mere gesture can incite these men into violence. They don’t even know why they fight, but they continue to draw their swords and insult and wound one another. That’s all they do. Their concept of entertainment and honor is based on harming other people. They enjoy it. It’s what they do for fun. And it’s exactly what happens to Tybalt and Mercutio.

Tybalt has 35 lines (if I counted them well), and literally every one of those lines is said with the purpose of quarreling. Every. Single. Line. Is he another victim of the feud? Definitely yes. All the boys are. Tybalt was raised in this extremely toxic environment and ergo he became a toxic man himself. But the difference between Tybalt and, say, Romeo or Benvolio is that the these Montague boys struggle with the ideals that were imposed on them. None of them enjoy violence and they both attempt to escape from it in different ways. But Tybalt is more than willing to prolong the feud. Look at his conversation with Lord Capulet at the party. There’s a bit of a territorial attitude in both of them—Tybalt even dares question Capulet’s management of the family, and his uncle needs to remind him who the patriarch of the family is: “Am I the master here, or you?”

So I don’t think “fiery Tybalt” is supposed to be a nice character. He is full of hate and arrogance and he is never going to avoid a chance to show his bravado and perpetuate toxic masculinity. He’s just a dickhead. He hates peace. He thinks the mere mention of that word is shameful. He is basically heartless. He wants to fight Romeo because he hates the Montagues so violently that he wants to murder him. (There is also no evidence that he found out about Romeo’s love for Juliet. If he did notice it at the party he decided not to talk about it because it’s not important, because the fact that Romeo is a Montague is enough for Tybalt to despise him.) There’s not a single moment in the play when he questions his actions. There is nothing in the text that implies he regrets anything of what he does. He sticks to his pride and fury till the end. He is too arrogant to admit that kind of emotion. Suppose he regrets killing Mercutio and so he comes back to Romeo because he wants to die, too. Don’t you think Shakespeare would have given him one last speech if that were the case? Some apologetic lines? He could have maybe turned aside and expressed his repentance to the audience without the other characters on the stage noticing. But he doesn’t. He comes back to Romeo to fight him. “Here comes furious Tybalt back again.” (And I hate how most film adaptations make Romeo chase Tybalt when it’s actually Tybalt who purposely comes back to Romeo. Tybalt would just never run away from a fight.) He only speaks again to transmit his intentions to kill Romeo: “Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here, / Shalt with him hence.” And then he dies. Silently. No last words for Tybalt. He dies without saying a word. If there’s any kind of guilt going on inside him, it dies with him.

Surely there was a part of him that was kinder—looking at Juliet and the Nurse’s grief, it seems like he was somewhat lovable. But it doesn’t take Juliet long to come to the conclusion that it was probably her cousin who occasioned the fight that led to his own death. So she seems to know that the most potent part of Tybalt’s character was his violent tendency. What makes her drink the friar’s potion after having expressed all of her fears is the thought of Tybalt’s ghost “seeking out Romeo”. She fears his violence will be strong enough so as to surpass death.

So I think Mercutio dies because both he and Tybalt find violence exciting. We as an audience might enjoy to see them fight, but too late do we realize that fighting is never a joke. Mercutio dies not because Romeo intervenes in a game but because he intervenes in a duel. It can’t truly be an accident when both Tybalt and Mercutio deliberately decided to engage in a fight just for the pleasure of promoting violence. It’s the stupid concept of hypermasculinity that destroys them. Mercutio has been mocking Romeo all along because love has turned him into an effeminate man: “Alas poor Romeo! he is already dead; […] the very pin of his heart cleft with the blind bow-boy’s butt-shaft: and is he a man to encounter Tybalt?” He finds Romeo’s refusal to fight Tybalt shameful. (“O calm, dishonourable, vile submission!”)

Anyway, that’s my reading. I’m aware that everyone has a different opinion on the matter and I totally respect that. I just don’t think there’s enough textual evidence to support the idea that Tybalt and Mercutio secretly love each other because they’re both pieces of trash (and I love them).

omg i have actually thought that before! i think kyungsoo and baeksoo have some kind chemistry that is kind of magical. all shipping aside, they have that special opposites attract aura around them, but after years they meld so well? they would make a great movie couple because of this. they'd bring that on set and on film and i have no doubt it'd be equal amounts of hilarious and swoon worthy - bsa

hahha really? it’s an excellent idea, how can we make this happen? T^T

true, they’re like the epitome of opposites attracting (and colliding sometimes) and finding common connections. no wonder they make such a fun fic couple.

i was thinking about this the other day when i remembered how this scene from exo next door caught my attention when i first watched it because seeing them interacting as actors felt so different from seeing them interacting irl

this post comparing baekhyun’s character staring at the person he’s in love with (i haven’t seen the whole scene) to how he used to flirt on playboy and i loved how natural and sexy the latter felt. i’m curious to see baek doing more of that and to know how their energies would play off of each other in a movie, something with a different tone from END.
