isn’t james still taking cat’s place at catco? what did he think about kara getting fired? would he be able to do anything in his position? would he even want to? does james even know??? does kara ever talk to him anymore? didn’t they agree to be friends? where is james 87% of the time when we don’t see him? why are the writers forgetting who james is and what his role in the show is? who is this monk elk and why is he in my house
do you ever think of how much barry loved lup…….how his identifier in the seven birds prophecy is ‘the lover’…….how many times he died trying to find her…..how every single time he didn’t know what or who he was looking for but he knew it was important so he kept going even when he couldn’t remember………..i do
my coworker and i – who are both lesbians – have discovered what appears to be a large and fucked up bug in the salon. neither of us can get close enough to identify it or determine if it’s alive or dead, so we’re trying to find someone to help us – we went to starbucks and our gay guy friend who works there was like “absolutely not i hate bugs what do i look like” and we were like ok fuck. we know our coworker coming in is also a gay guy and he’s absolutely not about any gross shit like bugs. i asked my coworker if her girlfriend could come help us and she was like “god no she hates bugs even more than i do” and im like god i hate gays why are we like this
the champagne glass in your hand felt heavy as you watched on. people around you bustled but you paid them no mind, instead your sight was fixated on the scene in front of you. another mikaelson ball was in attendance and you donned a beautiful gown, even surprising yourself with how well fitting it was - classy and just the right amount of trashy for you to feel like a goddess.
i love ur pokemon mob au!!! do u have natures/moves/abilites/ picked out for everyone like u do with shou? and what pokemon is reigen?
yeah!!! i doodled up some reference sheet things of them! :0
mob’s an espurr… or is he? something that’s established in the pokemon anime is that Mew can change its form to look like other pokemon, so i actually like the idea of mob as a mew who doesn’t know hes a mew!!! he only looks like a mew when he hits ???% tho, and that’s also the only time mob uses his hidden power move. im bending the rules of pokemon a lil bit here lmao
Ritsu’s a shiny espurr! even though he’s a psychic type, i think he had a lot of trouble actually using his psychic moves. he and mob are probably adopted in this au tbh. Frustration is his most powerful attack :0
Teru’s a braixen! i almost made him shiny but i think regular braixen’s pallet fits him more nicely. i gave him hidden power electric bc his aura is a spiky lookin yellow!! this is pre-mob teru, i haven’t figured out what he’d look like with haystack hair lmao. also not sure abt his nature.
AND finally, the Dad… reigen’s a Zorua posing as a Drowzee! But he has No offensive moves whatsoever, he’s useless in a physical fight. He’s very good at keeping up his illusion though, only dropping it when he’s alone.
and yeAH thats everybody that i’ve figured out so far!! not including shou, who is in another post ;v;
“ What does he think of me…? I always had that in mind. Even if he had a good opinion, i couldn’t feel happy. I can’t, because the person he sees isn’t Goro. This isn’t me. Me… Who am i? I don’t know. I can’t think. No. I don’t want to think. I don’t want for him to like me. Not this. Or maybe i do…? I just want to feel loved. Does that mean that anyone’s fine? No… It’s not like that. It’s not like that at all…
It’s stupid. I’m stupid. It wasn’t supposed to end like this… So cliché. I feel sick. If i talk to him as a friend, it’ll only be worse. I’d fall, deeper, deeper in a spiral of horror and pain. I have things to do. Things i MUST do. No matter how i feel. No matter how other’s feel. Isn’t just natural to ignore all these meaningless thoughts, if they’ll only make the end more bitter? I’ve never met kindness. I’ve never met love. If i do… If i let it be… If my soul reaches at least a fragment of yearning… I’ll miss it. I’ll miss him. I’ll feel hopeless, more than i can imagine. I don’t want that. I… Don’t.
I’m not in love. Love is pure, sincere, beautiful, healing. Love isn’t selfish. Love isn’t a martyr. Love isn’t something you’d want to run away from.
Okayy so when I first started witchcraft I was young and
this one thing remains the same: whenever someone finds out I’m a witch they
ask me “do you worship the devil?” “are you going to put a hex on me?” or “I better
watch out before you put a curse on me” ….
And I understand where people come from sometimes,
especially when I encounter really big Christians and all of that. I know that
not everyone is going to understand and that there are going to be some people
who, because of what they were taught, go straight to that assumption .. But my
question to that is “What if I did?” would you stop being friends with me or
talk to me about my practices when some people don’t even practice their faith
like they’re supposed to? What makes this even worse is the fact that people
think things are black and white. There are different types of witches dude.. and
a big news flash! There are Christian witches *waits for loud gasps*
Honestly because there are so many ways to practice, you can
be a Cristian witch who just put a curse on someone. The point is (and I’m not
picking on Christians, just using it as an example) is that when people tell me
that they are Christian I don’t just say “OMG are you gonna like splash me with
holy water” “I better watch out or you might stone me to death” like that’s wild
in my opinion. If you are curious about what I practice, try to ask questions
about it! Or do some research maybe? You wouldn’t appreciate it if I ask you
some off the wall shit and I don’t either.
SOOO instead of complaining about it without actually helping anyone, I’m gonna post some links so you can learn for yourself okay?
sports: on-campus dance team along w/ jimin + jungkook, mens volleyball
clubs: math club is boring so he dropped it for tango club and is trying to make everyone else come and try it. jackson agreed, jb was dragged there against his will
where do i even BEGIN,,,,,,,he’s the most adorable person and laughs sO loud at his one professor’s math puns that everyone else thinks is just straight up Corny but no yugyeom is c a c k l i n g with his hand on his stomach and smacking his hand down against his desk
and the professor even is like sheesh it wasn’t THAT funny but yugyeom is close to tears
so why math??? well yugyeom had initially planned on doing like finance for businesses when graduating or something and he’s always had a good knack for problem solving
even though sometimes the way he does it is kinda????? weird
like there might be a formula for something, but yugyeom will find a short-cut around it or come up with a whole new way of finding the answer
and a lot of his fellow majors are like ?????? how,,,,is it magic??? math is a solid concept????? but like,,,,,is it,,,,,yugyeom is always like “you guys need to think more like newton,,,,,,,like would he have found out all this stuff if he thought we already knew everything????? nO!!!!!!!”
and you look at him and see this tall, silly boy with a shining smile and kind of a childish nativity about him
but then he’s telling you about his combinatorial analysis homework and how fun enumeration problems are
and you’re just like???? what language is he speaking in????
he actually really likes doing his homework before dance practice because solving problems gets his adrenaline going and tbh people might not see it this way but dance has a lot of math in it too
you have to know the sequence of moves, what angle to bend toward to make it look pretty, how much time you have and what moves should fit in at what intervals
but when yugyeom was like “our routine is like a reaaaaalllllly cool equation guys!!!!!!” everyone on the team was like what in the world
is a good student, but if you open his notes up you’ll see doodles in the corners of pages of like jinyoung frowning with furrowed eyebrows and yugyeom is like “look, even on paper jinyoung is mad at me!!!!”
part of what people affectionately call the F4 of the math department,,,,,the other members are well,,,,,,,the most important thing is yugyeom is the youngest one of this group and people are always shocked because they’re like whAT he’s so tall,,,,,,,,tho,,,,,is he really that young????
his dance minor is purely for his own enjoyment,,,,even though the majors who take classes with him all agree that he’s really rEALLY good
“jinyoung can you get me that book over there.” “the one at the top?” “oh you know what nevermind ill get it since you’re too short!!! wait don’t hit me im sorry im sOR-”
jb: “don’t egg him on like that yugyeom, you know what’s coming if you do.”
yugyeom rubbing the bruise on his head: “buT,,,,,,”
joined volleyball team because the coach really wanted him on the rooster (plus it fulfills one the credits for his dancing minor so double win)
spiked a ball really hard by accident and it hit the floor and literally. deflated.
yugyeom with his cute face,,,,,,but hellish strength like honestly jinyoung should start being scared jkjkjk
and you’re actually,,,,,,well you’re dating yugyeom
it all started with you being at the dance team competition since you’re covering it for the uni journal and yugyeom,,,,,,,,whose usually one of the stars of all of the teams choreographs,,,,isn’t there????
like when the team comes out to perform you can hear the hushed whispers behind you and everyone’s like “where’s yugyeom??” “where’s the really pretty tall one??”
and you see how stressed the team captain looks and you’re like,,,,,something must have happened
and you know you should stay there and cover the competition,,,,but your curiosity gets the better of you
and you slip out of the dance hall and make way down the hallway that is packed with different college dance crews, bags of makeup and uniforms and props lay everywhere and you find the door that has your uni’s team on it and you knock on it,,,,,,,waiting until you hear a reply
and you’re like “can i come in?” and the person says sure and when you open the door,,,,,,,,there’s yugyeom
and he’s wearing the outfit, pretty makeup and everything but he’s sitting with his hand is on his ankle and he has this look between pain and confusion
and you’re like “i,,,,,im from the uni journal but i saw you weren’t going to be performing and i got worried?? i ,,,,,, know this is weird we’ve never spoken before but -”
and yugyeom’s confusion fades but he still has a bit of a grimace before he smiles and says that he’s fine, just a twisted ankle
but you’re like “does it hurt? maybe you should see a doctor?”
and he’s like “it should go away, im massaging it,,,,,,,,,,,”
and you kind of frown and are like “how long have you been massaging it?” and yugyeom kind of nervously laughs and shrugs and he’s like,,it’s been about 40 minutes since practice ended-
and you’re like bOY that’s not a twisted ankle that’s a sprain
and you’re like “you need to go to the doctor. ill call an ambulance.”
but yugyeom suddenly tries to get up to stop you but wobbles forward and you’re like o h nO and you run forward so he can lean onto you before he topples over and you’re like “sit.”
and yugyeom opens his mouth but you’re like “no no. sit. stay. im calling an ambulance and im telling the captain.”
and you do all that, and the captain says he’ll drop out too to go with yugyeom but you tell him you’ll handle it
and you basically ride with yugyeom to the ER where the doctor confirms that it is in fact a sprain and yugyeom needs pain meds + a break from practice
and after he’s discharged, you have his arm around your shoulders as you’re helping him so you two can catch a cab back to campus
and he’s kinda getting red in the face and you’re like ????? are you ok and he’s like “im still,,,,,,,,in the dance costume and makeup so it’s,,,,,,,weird”
and you do notice people are looking at you two but you just roll your eyes and you’re like “you look good, they’re just staring because you’re handsome.”
and yugyeom gets even redder when you call him handsome and you kind of bite back your lip because WHAT are you saying,,,all of a sudden,,,,,,
but it doesn’t end there no way buddy you both are getting all shy in the cab and the driver thinks you’re a couple and this is litERALLY your first day ever having a conversation with him
but yugyeom,,,,,,,,,,,,,,is,,,,,,,,,,woah like his visuals,,,,,,,,wow,,,,,,and you can’t help but deny being attracted to him on a physically level
but then you see how he innocently plays with his earring in the car, smiles when you guys are at a red light and there’s a group of kindergartners crossing the road, and how he keeps leaning his long legs (obviously cramped in the back of the cab) as close as he can to the side so you have enough space to sit comfortably
and when you pay for the cab since yugyeom’s wallet is back in his bag at the performance hall he gives you the most upset, puppy dog look and is apologizing and bowing 10000 times because he shouldn’t make you pay like this for him!!!!!
and you’re just like “yugyeom,,,,it was fifteen bucks it wasn’t that bad now promise me you’ll go straight to your dorm and rest.”
and you pull the pain meds from your pocket and hand them to him and you’re like “you remember, two every 8 hours!!” and yugyeom nods and you see suddenly
the cute mole right beneath his eye,,,,,,the way his bangs fall straight over his eyes,,,,,,,cute bowlcut,,,,,,,,,,,pretty long limbs,,,,,,,,and you’re like ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh he’s cute. i think he’s cute. oh no
and yugyeom, you can’t tell, but he’s thinking the sAME DAMN THING about how cute you are like oh NO he’s getting mushy for you because out of everything you could have done today, you helped out a stranger you didn’t even know well and put so much genuine care into making sure he was ok
and you’re both standing there,,,,,,and yugyeom is like “iF ITs,,,,,,,,,ok,,,,,,,can i ,,,,,,,,,,,have your,,,,,,,,,number,,,,,youcansayno!!!!!!!” and you’re like djfkldsfl of course you can !!!!!!!
and by the end of the week, with many texts, majority you being like: no yugyeom don’t go to dance practice taKE YOUR MEDS PLEASE AND REST
you both decide to meet at the library you know,,,,,,to study together,,,,hangout as friends
half an hour in though you’re like “yugyeom, if i can be very straightforward,,,,,” and yugyeom is already getting flustered but he’s like “yes?”
and you look at your book than up at him and you’re like “do you wanna maybe not study and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,makeout?”
and yugyeom’s eyes widen at the word and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,was i reading the signs wrong? but he shuts his math textbook and giggles into his palm before extending it to you and he’s like “im glad you asked, i was too nervous to.”
and yes. you makeout with yugyeom in that corner of the library no one ever bothers to go to and it’s,,,,,,,,,,so cute every time you break away yugyeom is like “what if we get caught???” and you’re like “it’s kind,,,,,,of thrilling though??” and he giggles and it’s sO FREAKING ADORABLE
you just lean back in and kiss him and he’s literally always smiling when you first start because he’s so giddy,,,,,, and he tastes kinda minty,,,,,,,like he chewed on gum before this,,,,,,,which he totally did because guess what kim yugyeom was daydreaming about kissing you before you guys met up so he prepared. Just in case
and when you’re done,,,,,walking out of the library and you’re jumping up to get yugyeom’s hair fixed and he’s leaning down to ask you to give him just one more peck
you run straight into,,,,,,,,,,,,jinyoung and jb
who both ask yugyeom where he’s been before looking at you in confusion because,,,,,,,,,they’ve never seen you before
and jb is like “is this your significant other yugyeom?” and you and yugyeom freeze up because,,,,,,,what,,,,,,um,,,,,,,,,,
but you come to first and you’re like “no,,,,,im his,,,,,,,,,,,tutor!!!!! for advanced linear algebra!!!!! well yugyeom - we’ll see each other next week for more studying!! bye!!!!”
and you zoom the heck out of there and yugyeom is left grinning at his friends who both shake it off and ask if he’s going to eat with them and mark
and as you’re walking back to your own dorm you let out a sigh and you’re like,,,,,,,,,i hope yugyeom isn’t feeling too awkward,,,,,,
and thankfully you get a text from him that’s like: they didn’t suspect anything ~~~ we’re in the clear
and that’s the story of how you end up,,,,,,,,secretly dating yugyeom
because you both agree when you meet up again, this time off campus and at a bookstore, that you totally wanna be a thing but,,,,,,,telling people right away might be hard?????
because people are noisy (cough literally the rest of got7 like damn mind ya business bambam) and you and yugyeom ,,,,,, want to just be together and get to know each other
which you do and it’s so much fun, yugyeom is an amazing person to date. he’s this perfect mix of romantic, but still a little novice to everything but he’s so willing to do anything for you
and you guys have fun, at the shopping mall together or at the arcade or even just walking side by side sharing a drink and snacks and talking about life
and yugyeom is so silly, playing small harmless pranks on you then laughing in the way that makes his nose scrunch up
and you’ll sit somewhere, holding hands and getting all cuddly and everyone thinks you’re both so cute,,,,,,,the way he’s got kinda bend down to be at eye sight with you / or if you’re tall how you both look so gracious like models,,,,,,,,
and yugyeom always thinks of you,,,,,it’s obvious with how he’ll send you photos of him next to a patch of flowers and be like “i saw these and was like ‘wow so beautiful!!’ i thought they were you, but they’re just flowers hehe’
and he’ll be up late doing math homework and send you like a thousand crying emojis even though you also love the way he gets super excited about these abstract,,,,,,,,crazy complicated concepts
but also as sweet and innocent as he comes off with all his giggling and playful pranks or puns or jokes
you can tell that sneaking around with you,,,,,,,like taking risks and bringing you over to the dorm when he knows any of his friends could walk in,,,,,,,,,or even on campus like the two of you out in the back of the gym with you up against the wall and yugyeom’s lips to your neck,,,,,,,like,,,,,,,,,
he really,,,,LIKES IT
and you kinda do too because it feels like you two have this secret that is so juicy,,,,,,,like you once had to press into this small corridor because you saw jackson coming around the corner and you were up against yugyeom’s chest
and he had his hand on the small of your back
and once jackson passed by you both realized how darn close you were and yugyeom got all red,,,,,,,,,but like,,,,,,,,,neither of you moved first because it’s s fun,,,,,,it’s so fun to have secrets!!!!!
you wore his sweater once to class once and forgot that youngjae was in it with you and you were like wait,,,,,,,isn’t that one of yugyeoms fRIENDS O H SHIT so you had to take the sweater off and you forgot you’d thrown it over a pajama top of yours and so your friend was like “why are you wearing a huge teenage mutant ninja turtles shirt ????” and you’re like no reason. i just,,,,,,,this is Fashion
but at some point you kind of get a bit sad because,,,,,,,dating secretly is so hard. you wanna go to yugyeom’s volleyball games. his dance competitions. you wanna meet up before class and kiss him before he has to go. you wanna sit in the library while holding hands under the table
but yugyeom seems ok with not doing,,,,that so you don’t wanna ruin it
until,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the secret is finally out,,,,,,,all thanks to bambam
who people don’t give enough credit to for being really observant because you and yugyeom just get back from a date and you run into bambam who is walking out of lab and you need an excuse since he sees you two together
and comes over and is like “you’re still tutoring yugyeom????? he told me he was a genius once i don’t get why he’s getting tutored”
and you’re like “OH ,,,,, well geniuses cough need some help sometimes too”
and yugyeom nods, giving his best smile and then bambam is like “i have a question, what’s that on your neck yugyeom?”
and yugyeom puts his hand on his skin and you look over and see the,,,,,,,,mark you left,,,,,,,,,and you’re like FRICK
and bambam isn’t even looking at yugyeom when he asks, he’s looking at you and the shock on your face ,,,,,,,,,
well bambam is just clapping his hands together and he’s like “well i guess you’re right,,,,,,,,,geniuses do need help but,,,,,,,,maybe by that you mean helping yugyeom out with,,,,,,,,hickies???? making out?????? getting fre-”
and you’re like UM WHAT NO YUGYEOM THATS A BUG BITE TELL HIM
and yugyeom is like “yEAH it’s a mosquito bite-”
and bambam is cracking up he’s like “was the mosquito the size of a baseball?????? yugyeom pLEASE”
and yugyeom is getting red and his voice is getting slightly higher and he’s like “iT WAS,,,,,,,”
but it’s so freaking obvious that he’s lying and you’re like we’re caught oh shit
and you totally are because bambam is like “if i know, you know got7 is gonna know so you two should just tell them before i make a big deal of it”
and so,,,,,,,,,,,you and yugyeom sit on his bed as the six members all stand and look at you and jinyoung has his arms crossed like a concerned mother and jackson is just like !!!!!!!!!!! this is amazing!!!!!!!!!! and mark doesn’t really care
and jb is just like “this,,,,,,,,,kid got into a relationship before me,,,,,,,” and ultimately it’s youngjae who goes
“what the hell has been going on?”
and you and yugyeom both explain,,,,,what happened and jinyoung is like whY DIDNT YOU TELL ME THE MINUTE YOU TWO BEGAN DATING!!!!!!!!!!!! and you’re like sORRy,,,,,,,,,,,he’s so scary
and yugyeom puts his hand around you and he’s like it’s ok,,, he’s always like this
but jinyoung is like excuse me - hello get your hands off each other no pda in this house -
and jackson is just like jINYounG can you Calm Down for like a minute anyway
and he turns to you two and he’s like “you’re both the cutest people ive ever seen. im so happy for you. please take care of our gyeomie, he’s sensitive.”
and yugyeom is like im nOT,,,,,,,but jackson is holding your hands and he’s like “please” and you’re like “of course???? ill cherish him with my life??????”
it’s a touching scene
but afterwords,,,,,after got7 is gone and it’s just you and yugyeom he’s like “sorry they’re like that,,,,,,,,” and you’re like “no!! i like all of them, they’re nice.” and yugyeom is like “im gonna just say something if that’s ok?”
and you’re dreading it,,,,,because now that the secrets out,,,,,,,will that make yugyeom want to stop seeing you?????? but instead, to your shock he’s smiling embarrassingly and is like
“it’s a relief they found out,,,,,,,ive been wanting to tell them but i wanted your consent first,,,,,,,,,im just thinking about how nice it would be to be able to hold you in front of everyone,,,,,,”
yugyeom kind of rolls his shoulders back and looks away adding “,,,,,,,to show you off as mine,,,,,,”
and it’s honeSTLY THE mOST adorable thing he’s so pink and he whispers the ‘as mine’ part and you can’t help it you throw your arms around his neck and you both topple over onto his bed and you’re like “im really happy because i wanna do that too!!!!!! kim yugyeom,,,,,,you’re mine!!!!”
and he’s laughing and wrapping his arms around you
and you nuzzle his neck,,,,he’s so warm and big it’s so safe in his arms
and just as you’re going to lean up to place a kiss against his jaw
the door flies open and jinyoung is like “WHAT IS GOING ON”
and you’re like ihbdljksfd and yugyeom sits up and you slide out of his lap and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and jinyoung is like “you two, we need to have a serious discussion about safety and-”
jackson comes in and literally just picks jinyoung up and is like “c’mon, let’s leave the kids alone” and you’re watching in shock and you’re like “yugyeom,,,,,,,,,,,,does this happen often?” and yugyeom shrugs like “yeah sorta,,,,,,,,,anyway you were kissing me and i’d like you to keep doing that ^^”
finally revealing your relationship makes you and yugyeom only get closer,,,,,like sure sneaking around was fun n hot but,,,,,being able to be together comfortably all the time is even better
eating lunch on the quad, being able to help yugyeom out at the gym before competitions (you’re always giving him shoulder massages and yugyeom’s friend jungkook asks once if you can do one for him and yugyeom is like “jungkook,,,,,,,,if you want me to go bowling with you net friday never ask that again” jokes jokes,,,,,,,,ok maybe not), and just like yugyeom being adorable and bragging to everyone in his classes that his significant other bought him this cute keychain look at it it’s the best thing in the WoRLD
yugyeom: “i love you more than i love math.”
bambam: “holy shit that’s a big statement coming from him. he must really love you, ive literally heard him sleep talk math equations before.”
you got super bored doing your homework for a class once and yugyeom was like ill come over!!!
you didn’t think that meant he’d bring his phone and put on some really lively music and make you get up and practice what he’s learning in tango club
which quickly turned to doing the tango, kissing, changing the music to something slower and somehow the two of you were dancing slowly to the music with yugyeoms forehead pressed against your own
like some kind of sappy romance film scene,,,,,,,,,,even though it was perfect and you literally felt like you were walking on stars in that moment
you have cute petnames for yugyeom and he loves them sm
except when his friends catch on and start calling him them in class and the professor is like “who are you calling,,,,,,,,,,angel of my life??? there’s no one in this class with that name?????”
yugyeom: “my love for you is like π it’s irrational and can go on forever,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,was that corny?”
you now also get to wear yugyeom’s sweater in public without worrying and wow it’s so comfy and smells like him,,,,,,,,you love your boyfriend so much
volleyball yugyeom waving at you during practice and the ball heads straight for his head but misses and hits his shoulder instead because he’s so damn tall
you still run over and ask if he’s ok and he’s pouting like “it hurts ;w;” and you’re like “let me kiss it better!!!!” and everyone is like BLEGH LOVE IS CHEESY
it’s just so warm and loving with him, he can be so silly and childish and get overly excited about things ,,,,,,, jumping up and down and doing little cute dances
but at the same time,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,he’s so gentle and considerate with you and your feelings and he’s always quietly asking for your reassurance and praise
like he just wants to hold you and hear you say his name and how much you love him because,,,,,,he wants to be treasured by the person he loves to infinity and beyond
and when you say something as simple as “you’re so amazing” yugyeom turns every shade of pink but also kisses you with such a passion you lose your breath,,,,,
jinyoung still sometimes is like this pda must stop- but honestly he’s so damn happy someone is treating yugyeom right,,,,,,,,and taking care of that big wobbly child
Hi, my name is Luke. please don’t skip past this post.
First of all i would like to, from the bottom of my heart, on my knees, thank the people that have already helped me. really i can’t put into words how grateful i am that I’ve gotten the help i have.
Let me bring everyone up to speed. a few days ago i made this post.
TL;DR me and my family are being kicked out of our house. we dont know what to do and we are in need of help.
But… unfortunately the situation is much worse. as of right now i think we have a week maximum to figure out what we are going to do.
in the original post I offered to do Commissions to people for what ever they could offer and I didn’t want to take just donations…
but at this point i have to put it all to the side…
This is my paypal email. (those of you who commissioned me might notice its different than the one you used, that was my original personal email.)
Please….anything you can do im freaking out and my family is freaking out. and we dont know what to do, i don’t know if i deserve your help or not i dont know….this is so hard for me to make, but i know if i don’t i’ll regret it.
if i didn’t do everything i could. please if you can just reblog this… even liking would help… i cant offer anymore commissions…but i just…please. i know i dont deserve it, but i dont know where else to turn to.
and if nothing else, i know not all of you are religious. but those of
you who are, if you could pray for me and my family. i would appreciate
thank you for reading this.
Im jumping on the lacelot bandwagon for a bit here but its more just lance centric.
So imagine lance meeting or perhaps getting kidnapped by lotor (obviously) and Lotor being nice to him and stuff, complimenting him, “Such a shame the others don’t realize the heart of the universe pilots the blue lion.” and just going on about how lance is special in one way or another. And at first Lance isnt stupid, he barks back things like “shut up, they know im special” or “i AM important to them.” etc. Even thougg he feels as if he’s lying a little in the back of his mind because he isnt sure if they even appreciate him. And so after countless times of arguing back Lotor decides to let Lance go but before he does he says “dont worry blue paladin, if you change your mind i will be here waiting for you to return so you dont have to live in their shadows anymore. I’ll make to give you all the love and appreciation you deserve when you arrive.” and that kind of makes lance think for a bit before he takes off to the castle ship.
Fast forward, he gets there and the first thing he hears is Keith yelling at him for disappearing in the midst of battle and a lecture from Shiro about why he needs to be more carful and alert. Hunk and pidge ask what happened to him. Lance is hurt that no one realized he was kidnapped after screaming into his mic for a minute or two before being silenced. Lance contemplates whether he should tell them about lotor but decides not to. He then gets called by allura who tells him to be more carful out in missions and that mistakes are crucial at the time and that he must try harder to be with the team. After that, he tries to help the team when they’re doing something. After another mission and another failed attempt to get his word into shiro, thay night he starts contemplating what Lotor had said to him before he was let go. After another few weeks of things as usual for him, his last straw was when Shiro told him to “stop being childish Lance, that plan might not work.” which was followed by silent stares. He ended up snapping at everyone. Which goes a bit like :
“OH IM THE ONE BEING CHILDISH?!? YOU NEVER LISTEN TO ME IN THE FIRST PLACE ANYWAYS, IM JUST TRYING TO HELP! LET ME HELP SHIRO!”
“Lance! dont talk to shiro that wa-”
“SHUT UP, JUST SHUT UP ALREADY KEITH, MR PERFECT PILOT, YOU DONT KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TOBE IGNORED BY SHIRO SINCE HE’S ALWAYS LISTENING TO YOU! YOU DONT KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TO TRY YOUR HARDEST ONLY TO BE SHUT DOWN BECAUSE NO ONE TAKES YOU SERIOUSLY! ”
“Woah okay dude chill ou-”
“DONT TELL ME TO CHILL OUT HUNK, YOU’RE NOT THE ONE WHO CRIES THEMSELVES TO SLEEP SOMETIMES BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE A TALENT LIKE YOU OR THE OTHERS. EVEN PIDGE CAN DO MORE THAN ME!”
And with that he walks out. Later that night he waits till everyones asleep and sneaks out and leaves in Blue, at first he doesn’t know where he wants to go so he just flies aimlessly in space before he stops and opens a wormhole. Once on the other side he spots the galras ship and when he lands in it he is greated by Lotor. With tears in his eyes he looks up at lotor before looking back down and closing them before buring his face in lotors neck. Lotors only words are “Welcome back, Blue Paladin, lets get you all settled in.” before lifting him up and carrying him to his quarters.
After a week without lance Shiro and Allura send a tracking signal for blue and pick it up on lotors ship. They prepare for battle and on the others ship they pick up the signal and track how far they are from them and prepare for battle aswell. Lotor made sure lance had no knowledge of the tracking and battle.
Finally the castle ship arrives and to the paladins surprise when they break into the ship, they are greeted with an armored lotor and galra soldiers and Lance by lotors side, holding him close. As the battle goes on lance manages to help capture the paladins. Allura and Coran manage to escape but lotor knows that they will be back for the others eventually. After they are captured lotor tells his guards to throw lance in there with them. As lance screams “i trusted you! why?” and kicks, lotor just grabs him by his face while hes being retained and says “did you really think i was being serious? Clearly i was only after the capturing of Voltron and its paladins.” to a teary eyed lance before he is dragged away to the cellars. Once thrown in he and the team make immense for now as time is crucial. (They make sure to rebuild their friendship and bonding later on properly) and make a plan to escape. Since Lance has been there longer they ask him how to get out with their lions. After finding the lions and getting ready to escape they find themselves stuck as lotor finds out and tries to stop them. After battling with galra soldiers and lance managing to injure lotor, they manage to escape through a wormhole allura had opened after she recieved their coordinates.
Back at the castle they use lances knowledge of the ship to try and find a way to defeat lotor, and each apologize to lance privately for ignoring him and all the things they did. Especially Keith and Shiro. Allura and Coran included apologized to lance as well. Although it may not solve anything fast, lance is happy that they apologized to him. And with that he knows that they’ll be able to build a stronger bond with time.
hi mom your blog is my favourite on tumblr i love your writing so SO much!! if and when you have the time can you do the neighbour au for vixx? if it's too much then the maknae line will do (i've read all of your stuff multiple times over + you're the reason im into seventeen and got7 ily) thank you in advance!!
omg this is so sweet thank you so much!! im glad you’ve come to love 17+got7!!!
sometimes he doesn’t leave his apartment for days. you can tell because his mailbox overflows but you can hear the music from his apartment for like a week straight,,,,,,,and then sometimes you’ll see him leaving his place at like 3 am dressed like he’s going to a Very Fancy club
“it’s the life of a composer,,,,,,,i don’t sleep for like ever and when i finish i have to go and get drunk with the person who paid me to write the song”
his apartment is essentially his recording studio, all the instruments and his computer are in the living room and it’s so crowded he bumps into his piano everytime he tries to get to the kitchen
likes collecting those little lego figurines and they’re like everywhere. on his computer, above his microwave, probably in his bathroom near his shampoo
wears some,,,,,,,,interesting outfits that always become the talk of the block
likes to try and keep everything clean but at some point he’s so into work he doesn’t realize he’s spilled cola under his desk chair and the laundry hasn’t been done since hyuk got a solo i mean what now
you know ravi is a composer,,,,but you aren’t really sure what that entails
until your best friend hakyeon, who happens to be close to ravi is over at your place and is handing a list that is titled “how to keep ravi alive” and you’re like what
and hakyeon is like,,,,im going on a trip to europe for a month and usually i check in on ravi when he writes but i won’t be here and everyone is busy and i need to make sure he at least eats something,,,,but i can’t so please,,,,,,,,,,,,,,do this for me
and you wanted to refuse at first because you don’t even know ravi
but hakyeon is a sweet person and he promises he’ll come back with something nice from europe for you so you decide fine, how hard can it be to just check up on a person
TURNS OUT when it’s ravi it is kind of hard
because the first day you literally come into his home and try to introduce yourself 4 times before you realize he’s so sucked into his computer he can’t even hear you
you check his fridge and there’s just,,,,,some old wine and like???? take out that smells Suspicious
and you throw it out and come out of the kitchen to tell ravi he needs to eat but then he looks up at you and screams because hOw DID you gET in here,,,,,and you’re like IVE BEEN HERE FOR HALF AN HOUR and ravi is like?????? i never noticed
but he apologizes as soon as you explain what hakyeon told you and he’s like embarrassingly rubbing his neck like,,,,oh don’t listen to hyung im fine on my own
but you think about his refrigerator and how sunken-in his eyes look from probably not having sleep and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,no i think hakyeon was right you need someones help
so you grocery shop and you buy coffee, red bull, energy supplements - whatever he needs to stay up
and hakyeon is only gone for a month but in that month you get to know ravi better than most people
how he works tirelessly, day and night, on 5 seconds of a song. how he gets angry with himself for not being able to write a melody. how he refuses to sleep until he’s met his goal
and the perseverance and creativity in him really shocks you because wow,,,,you’ve been living next to such a hard-working and talented person and you never even knew it
but also ravi you’ve worn those basketball shorts 4 days in a row take them off please
at one point you asked if ravi had brushed his teeth and he said something you couldn’t even understand so you went to the bathroom, came back with his brush and a cup of water and were like “open up”
and ravi was like ????? and you were like “ill brush your teeth while you work”
and it was,,,,,,,,,,oddly very intimate
and ravi may or may not have suffered like (3) mini heart-attacks
but when hakyeon comes back and ravi is done with his song you revert back to being,,,,,,just neighbors
until ravi needs to shut himself in for work again and you get a call from hakyeon where he’s like “you need to know something, ive been trying to make sure ravi is ok this past week but he keeps calling me by your name and when i tell him hello - im hakyeon he lets out a deep sigh and long story short i think ravi grew an attachment to you”
and you’re like??????? me????? but also,,,,,,,,you can’t help but smile a little
and you go next door and let yourself in and you’re like “ravi?” and you see he’s asleep with his head on his desk and you go over to get a blanket to cover him with but when you do, tucking it around his shoulders
you hear him murmur something low and you lean in closer and hear him say thank you along with your name
and when you come back to check on him again in a couple hours he’s awake and seeing you, it makes him actually stand up from his computer (something he does not do often when he works)
and he’s glowing, his sharp features all turning soft as he sees you
and you’re like “hakyeon told me you missed me” and ravi is like “AH,,,,well,,,,,,,kind of,,,,,i just,,,hakyeon nags at me and you were nice to me-”
and you get this smug look on your face and ravi is faltering under it and you’re like “here i brought some fruits over for you to snack on, but also -”
and you press a paper slip into his palm and ravi’s eyes widen and you’re like “it’s my number, so you can call me instead of hakyeon”
and you don’t see it as you go into the kitchen with the fruit but ravi literally gathers what little energy he has to do a little happy shimmy dance
and he tapes your number to the side of his computer screen and whenever he looks at it he gets this goofy grin on his face,,,,,,,,,because hehe,,,,,,,i have my crush’s number,,,,,
only person in vixx who makes his bed in the morning
lives a pretty simple and clean life, likes consistency and has one of those big calendars on his wall where he writes down all his future plans and probably even has like a workout schedule
park hyo shin album shrine in his bedroom complete with framed autograph
the type to have like candles ,,,,,,, that are in the shapes of like flowers it’s cute
bunnies have always reminded me of hongbin so maybe if he lived apart from vixx he’d have one that he jokingly names like wonshik but no no it’s real name is something cute like whatever the korean is for like carrot soup or something LOL
idk why but he likes pastel polka dots imagine him with pastel polka dot bed sheets he’s such a cute person
people are always surprised that he doesn’t have like,,,,,one billion mirrors in his house because like how can one Not look at a face like that
but in reality those kind of things make hongbin really shy,,,,,,like he’s just like,,,,im not handsome and everyone in the building is like IF that isn’t the biggest lie i have Ever heard with my own two ears
everyone in the neighborhood has a crush on him. it’s unavoidable. it’s hongbin fever
you’ve lived next door to him for a longtime so you guys are pretty familiar with each other,,,,,but the problem is everytime he meets one of your friends. they fall for him
and end up begging to come over just for a glimpse of him and then when they try to ask him out
hongbin awkwardly like ,,,,makes up an excuse as to why he can’t date them and they get sad and you’ve seen this happen five times and you’re just like ?????????? what is his type ????? what is he looking for???
but you’re not gonna ask him that because well like That’s Rude
but one night you actually end up over at his place because your tv broke,,,,and the premire of your favorite drama is on and hongbin was kind enough to let you in to watch it
and during a long commercial break you look down to see hongbin sitting at the table, writing down something and you decide that hey you’ll never have another chance to be alone like this with him
so you lower the volume a bit and you’re like “can i ask you something?”
and he nods without looking up and you’re like,,,,,, “ive lived across from you for like four years and ive never seen you,,,,,,,with someone,,,,that wasn’t from your friend group and this is probably super invasive but - are you seeing someone?”
and hongbin’s eyes go wide and he like looks up in silence
and you’re like “,,,,,,is it like an arranged marriage thing????? am i asking too much this is rude im sor-”
and hongbin shakes his head and is like “no,,,,,i just,,,,,,,,,” and you’re like ?????? and he kind of sadly laughs
and is like “,,,,,the person i like hasn’t come to a realization yet.”
and you’re shocked because hongbin. prince of your neighborhood. actual living art is harboring a one-sided love????
and you can’t help yourself you’re like “who is that blind? i mean,,,,,,,,anyone who looks at you is enchanted”
and hongbin laughs because that’s what he does. compliments make him shy
but then you go back to watching your drama and you don’t notice hongbin has stopped writing and suddenly you hear in a very quiet voice: “were you,,,,,,enchanted by me?”
and you look down at him and you’re like “are you asking if i liked you?”
and hongbin swallows a lump in his throat but builds up the courage to nod his head and you’re like “of course,,,,,,but i knew it was a longshot i mean ,,,,,,,,do you know how popular you are? it’s like falling for an idol-”
but suddenly hongbin is up and he’s like “don’t say that.” and you’re like is he embarrassed??????whats going on??????
but he just takes a seat next to you and he’s like “it’s you,,,,you’re the one i wanted to confess to me.”
and you’re so shocked,,,,,,you literally drop the remote and hongbin is getting red the longer you stare at him wide-eyed
until you’re like looking over at the tv and the drama is a kissing scene and then you look back at hongbin and you’re red now too
and you’re both red and there’s kissing in the background but you know what there should be some kissing in this apartment too
because you both like each other so why not
but when you do kiss him you’re like wait. wait. is this real did i fever dream this-
and hongbin takes your hand and puts it on his face and he’s like “it’s real.”
big tall meme
who can’t figure out how to cook a meal for himself but can reboot a computer and probably fix your tv in less than ten minutes
for the sake of this au,,,,hyuk is Nerd. as in his whole apartment is full of like action figures and comic books and video games and dirty socks and,,,,,half eaten bags of potato chips, opened cans of redbull
your usual college boy whose friends are all part of the e-sports club at school like c’mon
of course how could i forget, his movie collection of sci-fi alien flicks is the only thing that’s organized on his bookshelf
everyone in the building comes to him for help like the ladies need help with their broken microwaves and hairdryers while the dads don’t get why their son managed to break the new computer (hyuk looking at the sticky keyboard: uh,,,,)
and he does it for free for elders but the teenagers who go to him to learn how to game or upgrade their setups he’s like “my work isn’t cheap. 20 bucks an hour on nothing.”
hakyeon: stop pandering from teenagers
hyuk: ,,,,,,i have no idea what you are talking about *hiding his piggy bank which literally says ‘money from gamer nerdz’ jokes jokes
you know hyuk is handy with,,,,,electric stuff and whatnot so when your lights go out in the middle of the night even though you paid all your utilities like last week,,,,you know the man to go to
and when hyuk opens the door you’re like “whats up, my lights are out and im not sure if it’s a fuse box thing or -”
and hyuk is like “i got you let me come over”
but as you’re walking through the hall of your apartment you realize, you don’t have a flashlight and you’re like my phone is somewhere on my sofa,,,,,let me fell around
but you have literally zero light and it’s night out and you think you’re heading toward your sofa but you feel something soft standing in your way
and you’re like touching it and you’re like it’s soft,,,,but hard???
wait is that t-shirt
and you’re like hold up
“hyuk??? am i touching you????”
you: “why didn’t you stop me what th-”
hyuk: “it was fine, i liked it.”
and you turn pink, thankful for the lights off and want to swat his hand but you don’t know where that is until you feel his hand take your wrist
and he takes his phone out of his pocket and shines it on you and you’re like heY
and he’s like “hehe cute” and you’re like excuse me what
and hyuk is like “nothing, lead the way”
and when you get to the fuse box you hold the phone and see hyuk work with the wires. you notice the light shading his handsome face, a set jawline and wow,,,,his height????
and you’re like this is the first time im looking at hyuk and going ‘he’s hot’ what the HECK is wrong with me
and hyuk finishes in under five minutes and all your lights turn back on and he smiles
and it’s so,,,,,cute his nose is adorable did you just notice that??? why are you having all of these thoughts about your neighbor??
and he’s like “all done. how’d you like to pay me?”
and you’re like “i think i have some cash- but,,,,”
and hyuk grins because he’s like “yes,,,,,i don’t want cash”
and you’re like oh,,,,,,,,and you’re like “ok lean down-”
and hyuk does super duper excited that he’s about to get a kiss
but instead you pinch his cheek and go “ill order us pizza, don’t think im easy han sanghyuk.”
and with that you turn around and hyuk is just like: that was sexy
after actually reading the story i am here to analyze the parallels we see so far. im gonna assume you guys have seen the summaries because they are EVERYWHERE but basically the story centers around a utopian town called Omelas, who’s perfection relies on a singular miserable child. every citizen of Omelas knows this and must make the choice whether to stay knowing the cost of their happiness, or to leave and face whatever is out there.
in the description of the summer festival, it says the horses were adorned with “streamers of silver, gold, and green.” the concept photos must be from before they knew the truth, while they were happy at the festival.
in the teaser we see someone running out of a door (that kinda looks like a bus door to me), through the snow, and into the warm light of Omelas. “I incline to think that people from towns up and down the coast have been coming in to Omelas…on very fast little trains and double-decked trams.” i think the snow symbolizes the cold world outside the utopia of Omelas.
the rest of the similarities all happen in the last paragraph, when the narrator is describing the people who know the truth and choose to leave.
the first one is jungkook standing outside Omelas at nighttime, and all of them running between the buildings. “Night falls: the traveller must pass down village streets, between the houses with yellow-lit windows” and “…they walk ahead into the darkness”
next is jimin walking through the field, “They keep walking across the farmlands of Omelas.”
and lastly, all of them going out together. this is where the story and the video start to differ. in the story, it emphasizes that every traveller who leaves Omelas leaves alone. “Each alone, they go west or north, towards the mountains.” or “Each one goes alone, youth or girl man or woman.” clearly, this is not the case.
they are all walking together, determination in their eyes. “But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.”
Here is the transcript from the panel only including the actual questions, for the people who cant watch / don’t have time / or who were triggered by some of the topics discussed.
All of the personal stories have been removed, this is just the questions that the fans asked and Jack answered. Some questions were left out as i either couldn’t hear it properly or they were too complicated to write out (only one or two). Enjoy!
Fan: I wanted to know if you could speak another language?
Jack: Uh, kinda? I mean- I barely speak english, so. I speak a small bit of Irish, French, Danish, a little bit of Korean. Not very well!
Fan: I have a serious question, do you want to go to prom with me?
Jack: I was waiting for some very strong political commentary or something. Dude i’ll go to prom with you! I’m not a cheap date though. Im gonna need a limo, a dress, flowers.. Ok, sure. No problem. Hit me up. Hit me up in the DMs. Slide into them DMs man.
Fan: Do you prefer the original ghostbusters or the remake?
Jack: What do you think? It’s like- Do you like to eat pizza, or do you like to eat garbage? Does that answer your question? [laughs]
Fan: What’s your favourite song?
Jack: Im gonna have to go with the opening to Peppa Pig. It’s the best. It’s hard to top that. [snorts] [quietly sings Peppa Pig theme song]
Fan: Whats your favourite soundtrack from a game?
Jack: Oh, Jesus. See, everyone wants me to say Undertale, and that’s a good one, but i’m going to have to go with Shadow of the Colossus. And thats not just because its my favourite game ever, i think the soundtrack is really good and it really compliments that game as well. And its epic, you should work out to that soundtrack. Just like, battling titans, its amazing.
Fan: Since you don’t like Guinness, what kind of beer do you like?
Jack: See i’m like the worst irishman. I like beer but it’s like, Miller and Coors. Im so not patriotic at all. I like light beers. Im sorry everybody!
Fan: Do you like Twenty One Pilots and if so, what’s your favourite song by them?
Jack: I started off listening to their Blurry Face album- [Audience cheers] Man, thats all i have to talk about is Twenty One Pilots and then i’m good? [Audience cheers again] My favourite song from them is Lame Boy.
Fan: I wanted to know what your favourite storyline series is on the channel? Aside from Shadow of the Colossus.
Jack: Oh god, hit me with all the big questions. I don’t know, there’s a lot of good ones that i’ve played that have really good stories. My current favourite one is Night in the Woods. I love it, it’s just so weird! “Im a total trash mammal”. But probably Undertale. I’m not pandering either, i really like it.
Fan: Is there something that you wanted to try in the next year that you haven’t tried before?
Jack: Hmm, how much am i allowed to say… One thing that i want to try more of, and i’ve said this in videos, is to try and do this kind of thing in a touring fashion. To try and go around- because we always go to these events, and we always go to panels at them, but not everyone can come to this and there’s people watching at home- Hi people at home! [waves at camera] So it kind of sucks because all of these events go on in places that certain people can’t get to. So im going to try and do a thing- its not going to be anything crazy. We’re just going to try and do a thing where we go to more places and try and do more of these at different venues. Hopefully, i don’t know how that’s going to work, we need to test it out first. It could be awful. But hopefully we can get it done.
Fan: What video was the most fun for you to make?
Jack: Oh god, there’s like four million of them. I don’t know, it’s different because different things are fun for different reasons. Recording certain series- recording Shadow of the Colossus was really fun because its my favourite game, and then recording The Last Guardian was awesome because that was the sequel to that. And then recording with these guys [gestures to Mark, Ethan, etc] is awesome as well because we always laugh a lot. Different games for different reasons, certain things that- well, its more the ones that stand out to me more so the ones that are ‘fun’. It’s easy to have fun but its hard for a game to have a huge impact on you.
So two games that come to mind that have had a huge impact on me was ‘That Dragon, Cancer’ because thats just a rollercoaster from start to finish. That and ‘The Beginners Guide’ was a big one for me. Because i remember when i finished recording that video i was like “Ok, people are going to like this. I love this, this was a good thing to record.” And it was a nice experience to share and i don’t often get to do that with games. Like its fun to do Happy Wheels and everything, but at the end of the day they all kind of blend together. These are the ones that stand out, and it’s the one that stand out and sit there for a very long time that mean the most to you. Not that they were the most fun to record, but they were the ones to kind of stay with me the longest.
Fan: Is there a game that you play that you’re not very fond of?
Jack: Ooo, good one. I don’t know, i don’t think there is. If there’s ever a game that i’m not really fond of i just don’t play it. I think that goes for a lot of people. Or if i get bored of something i usually stop playing it. Well a lot of games i don’t know what they’re going to be like until i play it. God i wish i had an example, im bad at this. What videos have i recorded?
Fan: If you were to discover a planet in outer space, what would you name that planet?
Jack: Well, Uranus is taken. So im going to have to go with Urectum.
Fan: What kept you motivated throughout your entire YouTube career even when things seemed like they would never go your way?
Jack: Its going to sound like a cop out, but literally the people who watch the videos. I know it sounds cheesy and it sounds like you’re pandering to the people, but thats the real reason. There’s always a time when you’re uploading stuff that you don’t know if its going to do well or you don’t know if people are going to like it, and sometimes it just takes off and people love it. Then there’s always the times when you feel really down and you can go into the comments or go on Instagram or Tumblr or Twitter or something, and you can see people saying really nice things, or you will see them drawing fan art of the game that you’ve played or telling you their story. Like the people who have come up and said that you’ve helped them a lot, its that kind of stuff that keeps you going.
Because it’s very easy when you’re doing YouTube to get very jaded by it, because there’s a lot of- like when you get super involved in it and you do it as your job and you’re doing it day after day all the time, its very easy for it to consume you and to make you feel a bit cynical about everything. I don’t know, like you kind of take for granted what you have. So its when you do things like this, when you meet people, when you hear their stories and you hear how much what you do means to them, even if you think its silly, that keeps you going. Because you mean a lot for other people, as much as the people mean for you when they watch your videos. It’s a very back and forth thing and i definitely think its the viewers who watch your content.
Fan: Does pineapple belong on pizza?
Jack: HELL YES.
Fan: What do you want to say to all of the haters of pineapple on pizza out there?
Jack: Fuck you. There’s two types of people in the world, people who like pineapple on pizza, and people who are wrong [points at Mark]
Fan: When the full release [of Subnautica] comes out in May, are you going to re-do the series?
Jack: Yes. I mean, i feel like i kind of have to. Well i’ll probably skip a lot of the similar stuff like building bases and farming things [can’t hear what he said here] and whatever we haven’t seen or if stuff has changed or anything like that. I will definitely do it again, i love that game. The more Subnautica i get to play, the better. Its like the best game ever.
Fan: How is it like to make people smile every day?
Jack: It’s the best, man. Its awesome. It’s weird when you do- like i know that YouTube, what we do, people don’t consider it a job, but it is a job. And not a lot of people get to have that sort of feedback in their job or their line of work or the stuff that they like to do, or in their hobbies even. So its really cool that the stuff that we get to do that makes us happy, in turn reflects and makes other people happy, which in turn makes us happy, then it makes you happy. So its a really cool thing. I love it. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else anymore and it’s the best feeling in the world.
Fan: What’s a big goal that you want to achieve this year or in the next coming years?
Jack: Its like talking to a guidance counsellor again, like, ‘Where do you see yourself in five years?’. I don’t know, happy? [laughs]
Fan: It’s ok, happy is good. Stay happy!
Jack: I will try my best. As i said in the other question, i hope to do touring, and there’s other stuff that i’m trying to get done, that i can’t really say anything about and we don’t know if they’re going to happen or not so i don’t want to put stuff out there. As i said in the new years video i did, i just want to try and reach my potential or at least push past that. Because again, it’s very easy to just get complacent and just upload videos and do whatever, but you need to have that drive and that fire in you to keep going and try new things. I really want to try new things because i keep putting it off a lot of the time like, ‘oh, i have to make videos today i don’t have time for that.’
So i want to try and do more, and try and do bigger and better things because i always see other people do bigger and better things and its really inspiring. I want to try and reach that kind of potential as well. And i want to surprise people more than anything. I don’t want to just do the same thing over and over again and people think ‘oh its the loud, swearing Irishman.’ That’s cool, and that’s going to be on my gravestone, but i want to do more, and i want to as i said, surprise people and maybe do stuff that people thought i couldn’t do or stuff that i didn’t think i could do. I don’t know what that is, but we will find out together.
Fan: What’s it like knowing that thousands, millions of people support you in your dream even though 95% of them you’ve never met?
Jack: That is a weird thing, isn’t it? Because i always meet people and like all you guys here, a lot of you know who i am, some of you probably don’t, you probably just wandered in here, saw a crowd and was like ‘sure, whats going on in here?’ [laughs] So its really weird when you meet people and they know so much about you but you know almost nothing about them. Or maybe you know their username or their avatar and stuff like that, so i don’t know, it’s really bizarre. It’s a really surreal feeling, it’s awesome, i love that. I love that when you do YouTube you can reach so many different people, and not just world wide, there is so many people in different countries that speak languages that i had never even heard spoken, that you can see watched your video and im like, how? That kind of stuff is just so cool. I’m always fascinated by it. I don’t think i’ll ever stop being fascinated by it.
Fan: When did you and Signe meet? And how?
Jack: We actually met through Tumblr, which is really weird. Whenever i tell people that, they are kind of like ‘Oh.. i don’t know..’ Oh, we have five minutes! Ok, really fast. So, i was on Tumblr one day, and i was looking at a cool thing, and then she was like ‘hey dude wassup’ and i was like ‘yo girl wassup’ and then i was like ‘oh awesome.. thats pretty cool’ [laughs]
No, she had drawn some stuff of me a long time ago and then we just got talking. I can’t remember what we got talking about first, i’m terrible. And then i needed- I asked her if i could use one of her pieces of art in a thumbnail for a fan game that was done, so we just kind of got talking through that. And then she was doing a livestream on her birthday, and she was drawing me in it, so i stopped in, creepily. And i just said, “Hey, you better draw me pretty.” as a joke and she said “Go fuck yourself.” so i was like [nods head] Suh dude? [laughs] Its not just some magical fairytale, i didn’t ride in on a white horse brandishing a blade. I’m such a Casanova, right?
