After a highschool reunion where you got to see your old classmates in your hometown, a storm forces you to stop at the motel. You’re already wet and pretty pissed by the situation, but it gets worse when there’s only one room left for you, and your old enemie, Jeon Jungkook.
A/N : guess who’s back ! didn’t proofread yet, also the address is totally random, i have no idea if it’s real and where it is omg
“There’s no fucking way, no fucking way.”, you repeated, angrily running your hand in your wet hair.
“I’m sorry, Miss. But that’s the only solution.”, quietly said the girl behind the counter, nervously biting her lip. And in another situation, you would probably feel so bad about making her so anxious but your anger was blinding you from feeling anything else than pure rage. Rubbing under your eyes to wipe away any mascara running down your face, you leaned on the counter, hands flat on the cold wood as you tried to stop them from trembling so much.
“Are you sure ?”, you asked, desperate eyes looking behind the rather young girl. She was wearing a blue button up, nothing indicating her name, her hair up in a tight ponytail. Maybe it was the fact that you were slightly screaming at her or the fact that it was already late, but she looked completely taken back by the situation. You sighed as you saw that they were only one key left hanging on the brown board, ready to ask her if she could find any other solution, but she spoke before you.
“There’s nothing I can do, Miss.”
You looked at her once again, desperate eyes silently begging her.
“Fucking move already.”, a voice said, and you couldn’t help but roll your eyes as you immediately knew who the voice belonged to. You felt a rough hand push your shoulder, the force making you move a few steps to the side as the man took your place in front of the girl. An outraged gasp left your lips as you looked up, rage bubbling in your stomach, your jaw tight.
“I’ll take the room.”, he said, and you hated how his voice immediately changed, from an arrogant tone spitting poison to a sweet voice that he would use to get what he wanted.
Pausing his credit card on the counter, the girl turned around to grab the black key before you started speaking again.
“What the fuck, I’m sleeping in the last room.”, you spitted, quickly finding your wallet, slapping a few bills on the wood.
The blonde turned around, holding the key in her small hand, her eyes going from the man offering her a sweet smile and you, desperate eyes and gritted teeth.
“I’m not sleeping in my car.”, quietly said Jungkook, finally looking at you. Hair flat on his forehead, a few droplets falling on the floor, his clothes were as soaked as yours, his shirt tight against his body, sticking to the curves of his torso.
Looking at him, you asked yourself how miserable you looked, your dress wet with the rain, makeup running down your face, hair surely waving with the water.
“I’m not sleeping in my car either.”, you breathed, looking at him up and down, before giving a look at the window. Water beating the glass, leaving the blurry image of the storm going on outside, the few trees outside arching their branches under the strong wind.
You really couldn’t sleep in your car, it was too dangerous. The wind and rain were only growing stronger, the water gathering in the small parking lot. If you didn’t want to sleep in the centre of this mess, you had to take the room.
“If that’s the only solution.”, you breathed, giving up. You really didn’t want to sleep in the same room as Jungkook, but you had to. The man rolled his eyes, sliding his card towards the girl.
“You’re paying for half of it.”, he indicated before quickly taping his password on the machine.
“What a gentleman.”, you said, your eyes throwing daggers at him as you gave the girl the rest of the money for the room.
“Because you thought that I would let you sleep in the room that I fully payed for ? I know it’s the apocalypse outside but I’m not an angel, even if I look like one.”, he said, the smile you hated so much stretching his lips. And god knew that if you could, you would take your car and find another motel, if only you could.

I absolutely love the coloured pages for Moments but I also just love the black/white/grey colour scheme for the main comic so much bc it just seems rlly original and it just works?? Idk that's my unasked view on it haha
thanks so much!! i really love the greyscale style too, i’m so damn happy with how the comic looks :) colour is nice but i think the comic feels more… idk the greyscale style has a slightly cooler aesthetic… idk!
okay so i literally had no idea that calling someone coloured is offensive where i live its like, you're either black or white or coloured (or "chinese" but racism against asian people here is so over the top terrible so lets not talk about that for now) but like once i said "person of colour" irl to refer to a mixed race person and everyone looked at me like i'd completely lost it
It used to be the lesser racist term years ago to say coloured but now people don’t like being called coloured unless you’re saying it in the context of something like POC it changes a lot and honestly depends on the individual
“Can you tell me a bit about yourself?” is the most daunting question for a borderline.
Honestly, today I could tell you I prefer dark colours, I’m quiet and I don’t have a lot of friends but tomorrow I could literally walk in wearing all white and pastel colours, be chatty enough for you to tell me to keep it down while also texting away in my 3 group chats.
I don’t know how to answer that question and I probably never will because I have no idea who I am and there are so many versions of me, I just can’t keep up.
Romani are usually excluded whenever the topic of the Holocaust/WW2 comes up, so it’s not all too surprising that the Romani Day of Resistance is very unknown to the majority. But it should be celebrated and embraced since it represents a change in the way Romani culture and identity appear in public space - where a history of resistance replaces a history of oppression:
On 15 May 1944, the underground resistance movement in the Auschwitz, Birkenau concentration camp
warned the Roma that the SS guards were planning to round up the nearly 6,000 Roma and Sinti prisoners and send them to the gas chambers.
On the morning of 16 May, the Romani prisoners did not show up for the usual morning roll call and ceased cooperating with the SS guards.
The Roma barricaded themselves into their shanties. They had broken into an equipment warehouse and armed themselves with hammers, pickaxes and shovels, taking apart the wooden sections of the bunks they slept on to make wooden stakes.
When the SS guards approached the area, they were met with armed resistance from the inmates.
The prisoners forced the guards into retreat, and though some prisoners were shot that night, the act of resistance allowed the Roma and Sinti prisoners to put off execution for several more months.
The SS were in shock because they had completely failed to anticipate this resistance. Concerned they might lose more men and that the uprising might spread to other parts of Auschwitz, they retreated from camp BIIe.
No Roma died in the gas chambers that day. The Nazis subsequently put the prisoners of BIIe on a starvation diet.
Later, on 23 May 1944 the Nazis moved 1,500 of the strongest Romani prisoners to Auschwitz I, many of whom were then sent to Buchenwald concentration camp.
On 25 May 1944, 82 Romani men were transported to the Flossenburg concentration camp and 144 young Romani women were sent to the Ravensbrück concentration camp.
Less than 3,000 Romani prisoners remained in the family camp at BIIe, most of them children.
On 2 August 1944, the Nazis gassed all the remaining Romani prisoners to death in gas chamber V, although the Roma fought back on that dark night as well.
In Hungary the 2nd of August was designated in 2005 by the Parliament as “Roma and Sinti Genocide Remembrance Day”, yet most European countries make no or insufficient mention of the Roma victims in their official position regarding the Holocaust.
Roma are still misrepresented by stereotypes that overshadow our culture and real identity and it should be needless to say that Europe should put some effort on making the Roma genocide widely known and recognized, to serve as a counter force to the increasingly violent rhetoric and action against the Roma because and through them. Yet it does not seem like anything like that will happen any time soon.
& Yes, please reblog this to make at least some of our history known.
things u don't need to be non binary or genderfluid
- an androgynous face
- flat chest
- a neutrally pitched voice
- white. your skin colour, your heritage, your culture, they are parts of u to be as proud of as your gender identity, and though you may not see yourself represented the way white nb/gf people are - please, please know that it makes you no less valid, no less real.
u just need to know that who u are is real, recognise that ur identity is ur identity, no matter what the outsides say, no matter who tries to dictate to you who u are/what that identity is.
who you are is who you are, and that is completely valid.
I’ve seen a few people talk (and gotten a few asks) about what could the stark blacks and whites in Sana’s season could possibly mean. So far, I haven’t seen any opinion on this I really agree with so I’ll add my personal interpretation to the mix.
Each season has a different colour palette (and filter added in post-prod) that corresponds to its main and, by extension, their personality and how they see the world.
I picked a selected pictures from each season to illustrate my point. Sometimes, the main isn’t in the picture, so as to show you how much they influence (because it’s their season and their POV) the characters around them.
Eva’s colour palette is very earthy with yellows, greens, greys, creamy whites… The type of clothes she (and the people around her) mostly wear are wintery, cosy, and soft. The whole season’s picture seems quite dimmed/faded (probably a filter) that goes with Eva’s self effacing personality and how she feels she blends in the background. The only times she dresses in all black with heavy makeup is when she’s out of her comfort zone: namely, at parties.
Noora’s colour palette is saturated (but the colours/filters dim when she’s not feeling well, like when the stuff with Niko happens) with pop-y blues, yellows, oranges… The colours (and clothes) go with Noora’s joyful and spirited personality. The types of clothes she (and the people around her) mostly wear are quite fashionable. As for the filter, to me it looks like a cold yellow but people have also suggested that the filter might “just” saturate the colours.
Isak’s colour palette is dark with army greens, burgundy reds, dark greys, … To me, it goes with how low (and even depressed) Isak is feeling during most of his season. The types of clothes he (and the people around him) mostly wear are very casual and unremarkable. This goes to contrast with how different Isak feels from the people around him, how he feels that (ultimately) he doesn’t fit and has to blend as much as possible and mimics the “normal” attitudes around him (ultimately he embraces who he is, that he doesn’t have to behave or dress one way or another to fit his true self, that he is his own “blend”). A bluish filter is used. Blue usually indicates sadness and melancholy (”feeling blue”).
And now we have Sana…
Sana’s happy colour is black. Her season’s colour palette is black&white with, obviously, blacks and whites but also colours “in between” like greys and browns. The clothes she (and people around her) wears are casual and sporty. She wears lighter/warmer colours and makeup the more comfortable she is. And her makeup gets darker and heavier, as her clothes get darker too and less personable, when she is uncomfortable and closed-off. This goes with Sana’s badass and active personality (as well as her love for basketball and hip hop music). The filter used is warm earthy yellow.
So yeah: to me, not everything has to be just symbolic for the sake of. TV shows and movies are visual arts and colours are, as a result, very important. You don’t need to dig deep into symbolic to get a feel about a character based solely on the colours used. A character dressed in white doesn’t automatically mean goodness and purity. Sometimes, when a character is in white and all the others around them are in black, it’s just that the director wants us to focus even more on that character in white.
Special thanks to @imagineisak who helped a lot with the colour lingo and who you should go harass so they write us a deeper meta on the use of colours in SKAM. Lots of thanks to the skamily discord chat as well. <3
Fruit and vegetables fall into five different colour categories: red, purple/blue, orange, green and white/brown. Each colour carries its own set of unique disease-fighting chemicals called phytochemicals. It is these phytochemicals that give fruits and vegetables their vibrant colour and of course some of their healthy properties.
What’s in a colour?
RED Red fruits and vegetables are coloured by a natural plant pigment called lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the risk of cancer and keep our heart healthy.
PURPLE /BLUE The plant pigment anthocyanin is what gives blue/purple fruits and vegetables their distinctive colour. Anthocyanin also has antioxidant properties that protect cells from damage and can help reduce the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease.
ORANGE/YELLOW Carotenoids give this group their vibrant colour. A well-known carotenoid called Betacarotene is found in sweet potatoes, pumpkins and carrots. It is converted to vitamin A, which helps maintain healthy mucous membranes and healthy eyes. Another carotenoid called lutein is stored in the eye and has been found to prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness.
GREEN Green vegetables contain a range of phytochemicals including carotenoids, indoles and saponins, all of which have anti-cancer properties. Leafy greens such as spinach and broccoli are also excellent sources of folate.
BROWN/WHITE White fruits and vegetables contain a range of health-promoting phytochemicals such as allicin (found in garlic) which is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. Some members of the white group, such as bananas and potatoes, are also a good source of potassium.
We often go with Kana to used books stores to find interesting materials. Last time I bought an old album about Japanese bridges and found in it one that I know pretty well - The Full Moon Bridge in the Koishikawa Korakuen Japanese garden. I go there to paint often because it’s one of the few gardens that don’t mind if you use a tripod (or two).
I did this picture during a pretty long session (about 5 hours). I first made a really basic sketch in 2H pencil and then painted with my Schmincke set. The foliage proved to be really difficult to paint in this style with just watercolours so I used some white poster colour paint (NIKKER brand) and mixing it with the watercolours added some details.
The light kept changing drastically because of fast moving clouds and I got rained upon halfway through the painting. I managed to finish it somehow just before a huge storm approached.
