why did we not have this

The reason why 'Sea' is a hidden track:

Q: And if fans are so lucky to own the physical album, they’ll hear two hidden tracks at the very. Why keep them secretive?

Namjoon: I think they’re hidden because you have to be a real fan of BTS to understand them. Otherwise, you won’t. Otherwise, you’d like be, “Why are they feeling so confused about things? They’re good?!? They’re No. 1 somewhere, they have so much stuff, why are they worried?” People always talk about that. But if you are a true fan of BTS and you buy the album and you listen to the hidden track – if you are an Army and we spent time together from 2013, 2014 – they could understand. It’s kind of more special, more closer, to our true hearts.

And then I keep asking myself over and over again why the hell did you act the way you did if you already knew we wouldn’t last? Why did you act the way you did if you already knew you’d forget me. Why did you act the way you did if you already knew I wouldn’t have mattered anyways?

There’s a problem with having a lot of 1) stupid ideas and 2) awesomely creative friends.

Because honestly they just enable your stupid.

I went off to Maine in August and, during a break from my novel, wrote nine episodes of this while on a sugar high. (My fave’s the Predator one, but it’s not until #7). Guys, LOOK AT DAVE’S ART. Why the heck isn’t he working for DC or Marvel yet? Anyway, here’s something dumb that Dave and I did in our spare time. We’ll be dropping one of these a month (-ish). around our actual commitments. 

Edit: here’s a photoset version that’s easy to embiggen!

“Like they either-” Sam tried to swallow the lump in his throat, each option he thought of sounding as intimidating “They either kill her off or… our (Y/n) ends up pregnant too.”

“Wh- what?” Dean blinked “No, man’t that’s- no it can’t happen, it’s just-”

“What?” Sam cut him off “Stupid? Is it, Dean? That’s the only thing I can think of. Yeah she was pregnant before and yeah they didn’t incorporate that in the show but it’s twins now. Her belly’s gonna grow twice as fast and twice in size, and that is definitely something you cannot hide.” he threw his arms in the air and Dean clenched his jaw.

He really didn’t know what he wanted less. To lose the woman he loves or to have to endure you getting pregnant with his brother’s child when he wished so badly he could be the one to make you a mother.

“I mean if you have any other ideas shoot but- I- I seriously have not stopped thinking about it ever since she told me about her pregnancy and I’m- I’m terrified. I mean the pregnancy aspect scares and excites me at the same time and I-” he shook his head “I don’t know about it but the-” he swallowed thickly, fighting the unpleasant feeling in his chest “The other aspect I can’t even dare to think about for longer than a second, Dean.”

What Am I To You? (P. 3)

Pairing: Kim Taehyung (V)/ Reader

Genre: Angst

Words: 3.3k

Part 1 | Part 2 | Masterlist

What have you done?

“I’m sorry….this is my fault.” You felt your eyes get watery.

“This is my fault as much as yours.” He started. “There is something I need to tell you-” He was cut off by the knocking.

You quickly wiped your eyes and looked out your peep hole.

“It’s Nayeon.” You panicked.

His eyes widen and he went into your bathroom hiding.

You opened the door. “Heyyy.” She sweetly greeted.

“Have you seen Tae?”

“Not since the party.” You answered.

“Hey you okay?” You nodded. “Do you want to get breakfast….I could really eat.” She laughed.

“Yeah of course….but I’m going to take a quick shower.”

“Okay.” Then she turned around and left.

You shut the door and went back towards the bathroom. “You need to leave…like now…before she comes back.” You panicked.

He just looked at you distraught. “We need to talk about-”

“I know okay…..I’m sorry but I promise it didn’t mean anything.”

You thought you were saving you and Taehyung’s friendship but what you really did was shatter his heart with those few words.

He looked down processing what you said.

“Right….of course.” He started to walk away.

“Let’s pretend that it never happened.” He continued and left.

“Tae?” What’s wrong with him? You thought he would be relieved but he wasn’t. He said to pretend it didn’t happen but maybe he couldn’t. Maybe he was upset because you almost jeopardized your friendship.


You continued getting ready and met Nayeon in the college cafe. You tried texting Tae and told him you wanted to hangout with him later but he declined. He said he was doing something with Nayeon.

“Took you long enough.” Nayeon mocked once she saw you. “I already got us food.” She giggled.

“Nice….thank you.” You sat down. “So how are you feeling?”

“Surprisingly okay…my roommate gave me some medicine.” She explained.

“That’s good….maybe you should slow down next time.” You laughed.

“Yeah, I don’t even remember anything.” She pouted.

“Well, you were past out pretty early for a party.”

“Can you tell me what happened?”

You gulped almost loud enough for her to hear. “Well…..Tae and I carried you to your room after we found you past out on the couch.”

“Oh okay.” She seemed relieved. “What did you guys do?”

You choked on your drink that you started but ended up spitting it out, coughing for your dear life. You took a bunch of napkins and cleaned up. You felt uncomfortable from all the people staring.

“You okay?” Nayeon looked concerned.

“Yeah, wrong pipe.” You pursed your lips.

“So?” She was waiting for your response.

“Nothing.” You nervously said.

“What do you mean?”

“We were pretty drunk ourselves so we just talked and when I woke up he was gone so I don’t know where he went.” You lied. The memory flashed through your head.

You waking up naked next to him. You felt butterflies just thinking how beautiful he was, especially when he was asleep.

You saw Nayeon staring at you and you immediately felt guilty.

If she ever found out she would be devastated.

You felt like you ruined everything already. The only thing was you couldn’t read Taehyung, like usual.

Was he okay with it or did he hate you now for this dumb mistake that could ruin your friendship forever? Was he heart broken for cheating on Nayeon? You had no idea.

“Why are you blushing?” She smiled. She turned around from where you drifted off to. She looked back at you confused. “Do you have a crush on someone?”

“Oh no.” You avoided the question.

Because, ‘I’m falling for your boyfriend’ is really gonna be a good conversation starter. Not like you’re the one to set them up or anything.

“Come on, you could tell me.”

“Trust me-

"Please, we could double.” She wasn’t giving up.

“Okay.” You flipped through all the guys in your head. Who could you get away with that she doesn’t know?

His name is…….Jungkook.” You actually had a good time with Jungkook last night but you didn’t have a crush on him and you knew Nayeon didn’t know him.

Jungkook may had said he didn’t like her but he said he never met her because she claimed that she wanted Tae all to herself.

“Oh…is he cute?” She winked.

“Sure.” You tried to move on from the awkward conversation. “So what are you and Tae doing later?”

She shrugged. “Not sure…I haven’t talked to him yet today.”

You looked at her confused. Why would Taehyung lie to you? There it was, the sharp pain you kept feeling. Taehyung must hate you. You made your friendship awkward and now you don’t know how to face him. He obviously didn’t want to face you.


Nayeon was on her way to look for her boyfriend. She knocked on his door hoping to find him there because he wasn’t in a texting mood today.

As he opened the door annoyingly he was surprised to find Nayeon there with a big smile on her face.

“Hey babe.” She wrapped her arms around Tae bringing her lips to his. He didn’t really respond so she immediately pulled away. “Hey what’s wrong?”

“Nothing, just still hungover.” He lied.

He wasn’t in love with Nayeon but he felt guilty. It wasn’t fair to her and he knew that. He cheated on her with you. Even though you were both drunk, that wasn’t an excuse. How was he going to tell her? Taehyung was honest with pretty much everybody. He hated lying, especially something like this.

“Come on.” She pulled him inside and pulled out some pain reliever out of her purse. “Take these.” She handed over a bottle of water.

“So apparently you wanted to do something today?” She continued.

He closed his eyes feeling more guilty. He was caught in a lie. He figured you talked to Naeyon.

“Yeah…maybe we can stay here and watch movies?” He suggested.

“Okay cool.” She said excitingly. “I’m sure we can play some games as well.” She bit her bottom lip hinting of what she really wanted. Taehyung wasn’t ready to have sex with Nayeon. He didn’t have any feelings for her so he felt like it wasn’t moral.

“And also I was thinking we could have a double date.” She was still excited.

“With who?” Taehyung asked confused.

“(Y/N) has a crush on someone and I thought that maybe I could set her up like she did for me.” Nayeon laid her head on Taehyung shoulder.

“Who does she have a crush on?” Taehyung pulled away so he could look at Nayeon.

Taehyung felt the rage and jealousy already and he didn’t even know who yet.

How could you have a crush on someone already and why didn’t you tell him, he thought. He thought you were best friends.

“I don’t know him but she said his name was Jungkook.” She said dumbfounded.

Taehyung stood up aggravated startling Nayeon. “Are you fucking kidding me?”

Taehyung started pacing rubbing his forehead frustrated. He felt horrible before but this was an all time low for him. Not only did you break his heart this morning of your regrets of last night but now you had a crush on his best friend. He didn’t know how to express any emotion anymore. His heart just kept shattering step by step.

“What’s wrong?” He almost forgot Nayeon was there.

He had to tell himself to calm down or the truth will clearly be shown. “Nothing, I just can’t believe she never told me.” He said distraught.

“Yeah I had to drag it out of her.” She giggled. “But I don’t know him.”

“I do.” Tae said causing Nayeon to look at him. “He’s my best friend.”


Taehyung went over to Jungkook’s dorm immediately as Nayeon asked if he could invite Jungkook into a double date which he knew he never would encourage.

He knocked on the door and it didn’t take him long to answer.

“Hey man, long time no see.” Jungkook teased.

Taehyung just clenched his jaw looking at his best friend.

“What?” Jungkook looked alarmed. He never see Taehyung without a smile. “Tae?” He asked serious.

Taehyung walked past Jungkook into the dorm.

“Hey V.” Jin called him by his other nickname.

Tae didn’t say a word he just nodded.

“Tae Tae what’s wrong.” Jungkook jumped by his side aggressively wrapping his arms around him.


“Basically I came over to invite you for a double date.” Tae continued.

“Who am I bringing? Jin?” Jungkook teased.


Jungkook’s face dropped. “Why?”

“Because (Y/N) has a crush on you.” Tae said emotionless.

“What? That can’t be right?” Jungkook laughed.

“Well she told that to Nayeon so…” Tae said with more attitude.

“Look Tae, even if that was the truth, which it isn’t, I would never do that to you.” Jungkook said sincerely.

“Why does it matter I’m in a relationship and she doesn’t have feelings for me anyway.” Taehyung’s face flushed but no tears came out.

“You’re obviously not happy, why don’t you just break up.” Jungkook suggested.

“I can’t.”


“Because I have no one else.”

“What do you mean?” Jungkook was confused.

“I thought for a split second that maybe (Y/N) had feelings for me but….I don’t know.” Tae looked down. “I just keep setting myself up for disappointment and Nayeon is there and I know how she feels about me so…”

“So….do you have feelings for her?”

Taehyung didn’t answer. “You can’t do this to yourself….its not fair for her or yourself.” Jungkook raised his voice in concern.

“I know….I just need more time, I’m sure it’s there.”

“And what if it isn’t, you going to forget about (Y/N)?” Jungkook had irritation in his voice.

“She doesn’t like me like that.” Taehyung was tired of talking. “And to be honest, I’m sick of waiting for her….I just wish she would stay out of the picture and liking you is not gonna do it.”

Jungkook was shocked by the words of his best friend.

“Are you saying that you don’t want to be her friend?”

“No……..it’s just hard to be around her that’s all.” Tae fell back to lay on Jungkook’s bed.

“Have you thought about telling her how you feel?” Jungkook asked.

“I do all the time, but I know how this works….it could make things awkward.”

“Don’t worry too much Tae.”

“Jin why don’t you make something to cheer him up.”

“That’s okay…Nayeon wants to go out tonight.” Tae started to get up.

“Of course the princess wants your service.” Jungkook nagged.



Jungkook decided to pay you a visit after Taehyung left.

When you answered the door you never expected to see Jungkook of all people. Yes you consider him a friend because of Tae but that was it, you would never intend to hang out unless Tae was there.

“Hi?” You question. “What are you doing here?”

He smiled and walked past you. “So I heard that you had a crush on me.” He smirked.

“Oh no.” You slapped your forehead. “I can’t believe she would just go up to you and tell, what kind of friend does that?”

“Actually Taehyung told me.”

“W-what?” You felt shocked. You never thought that he would hear of your little lie and you prayed he wouldn’t.

“Jungkook….I don’t have a crush on you and please tell that to Taehyung.” You panicked.

“It’s okay, I figured you didn’t….that would be weird.” He sat on your bed.

“Thanks.” You said sarcastically but followed by a chuckle.

“Nayeon was convinced I had a crush so I lied and said it was you to shut her up.”

Jungkook rolled his eyes. “Why do you even hang out with her?”

“I know she’s a pain but she’s sweet.”

Jungkook laughed sarcastically. “That’s funny.”

“Can I tell you a secret?” Jungkook started.


“You can’t tell anyone especially Tae.”

“Okay?” You were confused.

“Taehyung is in love with you.”

“What?” You couldn’t believe what you were hearing. “No he’s not.”

“Oh yes he is….has been for a while.”

“You sure?” You were shook.


“Why hasn’t he said anything?”

“Because he didn’t want to ruin your friendship.” That was a pretty good reason and also the reason you were afraid to move forward.


You couldn’t help but blush. “Why are you smiling like that? Do you like him to?” Jungkook asked in excitement.

“Maybe.” You bit your lip.

“Why don’t you tell him?”

“I wasn’t really sure until last night.” Those words slipped from your mouth that you wish you could take back.

“What happened last night?” Of course Jungkook had to end his curiosity.

“Um-” You didn’t know how to explain. “We sort of had sex.”

“Whoa- what?” Jungkook stood up. “You two?”

You nodded. “Don’t get carried away….we were both drunk and obviously we don’t really remember much…”

“That’s insane.” Jungkook smiled.


“You guys need to be together.”

“We can’t.” You quickly responded.

“Wait, what?” Jungkook sat back down.

“He’s with Nayeon and she is crazy in love with him, I can’t do that to her.”

“So it’s fake love…..he obviously isn’t in love with her back.”

“It don’t matter….he needs to break things off himself.” You said.

You saw that Jungkook was thinking. “Get ready.”


“Because we are going on a double date.”


“I don’t like this, he’s going to be heart broken.” You whispered to Jungkook as you walked up to the diner.

“It’s fine I have a plan.”

What was he planning?

You entered the theater and as soon as Taehyung saw you and Jungkook holding hands his face dropped. He really did like you.

“Hey.” Nayeon greeted. “Why didn’t you tell me he looked like that?” She whispered into your ear.

You just shrugged. This whole thing made you uncomfortable.

“This was our first date.” Nayeon grabbed onto Taehyung’s arm causing you and Jungkook both to roll your eyes. You had such a rage towards Nayeon when she was around Tae.

She always wanted the world to know they were together.

When you found your seats you made a small eye contact with Taehyung. He looked away quickly. He couldn’t even look at you.

You were sat between Nayeon to your left and Jungkook to your right. Taehyung choose to sit as far away from you as possible, more specifically close to the aisle. You felt anxiety.

“Stop worrying.” Jungkook whispered. “He’ll be okay trust me.”

Jungkook made it clear that he didn’t want you saying anything about your feelings. He wanted to convince Taehyung to tell you himself. And to get out of his lousy relationship first.

As the trailers were starting you saw Nayeon fidget in her seat making you draw attention. You saw her scurry her hand over Taehyung’s thigh.

Your heart was beating from your rage. You wished you never had that double date which started their relationship. There you said it.

She was really asking for it. She brought her hand closer to his fly palming the area. Taehyung gave a falsely smile and grabbed her hand to hold instead. It was his sweet way to tell her no.

“What’s wrong?” Jungkook asked.

“Nothing.” You gave a fake smile.

Jungkook leaned forward and looked in the direct you were previously. He saw that Nayeon was once again trying with Tae. You looked over and saw her bring her hand down under his waist line of his jeans.

“I’m going to use the restroom.” He sat up and walking down the aisle. Jungkook nudge you to go after him.

“I have to use it to.” You got up nervously and followed Taehyung’s footsteps. When you entered the lit up hallway, you saw him sitting on one of the benches looking distraught.

“Hey.” You sat down next to him.

He glanced at you but turned away quickly.

“What’s with you?” You poked him. “Why do you hate me?” You said it as a tease but you felt like he really did.

He let out an audible sigh. “Why do we call each other friends when you can’t even talk to me?”


“My best friend (Y/N)? Why didn’t you tell me.”

You know Jungkook told you not to say anything but you didn’t have to tell him everything.

“I don’t have a crush on Jungkook.”

He looked at you confused.

“Nayeon insisted that I had a crush and wouldn’t shut up about it….so I lied.”

“Why Jungkook?” He asked.

You shrugged. “Jungkook’s my friend and I knew that she never met him so I didn’t think this would happen.”

Taehyung still looked confused. “Your friends are weird Tae.” You giggled.

Finally, he smiled at you.

You leaned your head on his shoulder. He wrapped his arm around you bringing you closer. You wished he would just be honest with you so you can both be happy.



“I want you to know that you can tell me anything….never hold back the things you keep bottled up, because you’ll regret them later on.”

He looked down at you thinking but said nothing. He was clearly not ready and you understood.

You grabbed his hand that was holding onto you and circled it back so you can hold it properly. You leaned your head back down to enjoy the moment.


You both jumped from the voice that ruined the peace. You both looked down the hall seeing Nayeon staring at you both. Her usual brighten up face was no where to be seen.

You couldn’t read her expression but it was definitely serious.

“You’re missing the movie.” She lowered her voice as you and Tae made your way over.

She quickly grabbed Tae’s hand and went back inside leaving you alone. You were taken back from her attitude. Did she think something happened?

The movie wasn’t all that good, its hard for horror movies to be scary now of days.

“I’m gonna run to the bathroom quick.” Nayeon announced. You were staring off into space until she called your name to join her.

What is this high school?

You leaned on the sick waiting patiently for her to finish. When she was done, you almost swear she was glaring at you as she washed her hands.

“Good?” You pursed your lips and turned around.

You jumped from the fact that she grabbed your arm aggressively to stop you from walking out the door.

You raised your eyebrows at her to question her actions.

“Do I really need to warn you to stay away from Tae?” She was acting crazy.

“Excuse me?” You sassed.

“You heard me….your going to stay away from Taehyung from now on.”

“That’s not happening.” You laughed sarcastically. “Did you forget who got you two together?”

“I’m not an idiot (Y/N)…. I know you’re in love with him.”

“You’re crazy.” You tried to turn around again but she stopped you. “Let go of me.” You clenched your jaw.

“It’s funny how you could of easily had him but now that he’s unavailable you want him….wow desperate much?”

“What the fuck is wrong with you?” You couldn’t believe she was acting this cold towards you.

“I’m being defensive….I’m not gonna let a slut like you take my boyfriend.”

You aggressively got out of her grasp and made your way out of the bathroom in rage.

Walking away you were on the verge of tears. This was your friend. So you thought. How could she act like this?

When you got closer to the boys, they both gave you a questioning look.

“Let’s go.” You tugged Jungkook’s arm.

“Hey what’s wrong?” Taehyung grabbed your hand.

“Nothing’s wrong Tae, but it will be.” You glanced back at Nayeon who was making her way over. Taehyung followed your eyes and when he looked back at you, you were already out the door.

“Are you gonna tell me what’s wrong?” Jungkook asked.

“You were right.” He looked at you. “Shes crazy.”

Jungkook smirked. “I’m worried for Tae, he needs to get away from her.”

Jungkook’s smirk quickly faded. “So new plan….get him to breakup with crazy.”


Masterlist | Part 1 | Part 2

Sheith Pirates of the Caribbean AU Part 2 (Part 1)

  • After the Brethren Court, Shiro hasn’t seen Keith ever since. But he can’t stop thinking about him. He’s never been this taken with someone else before. His night escapades just can’t compare.
  • He’s so smitten. It’s ridiculous.
  • He tends to stare into the horizon and just keeps sighing.
  • “Captain, you’re like a widower,” Lance says. “Get it?” Lance nudges his elbow. “Widower. The Widow’s Death?”
  • Lance just snickers. “Man, you got it so bad, huh? You don’t even join us anymore when we hunt for chicks in Tortuga. And that’s saying a lot because you usually get the most. And yesterday you didn’t even bother leaving the ship. C’mon. Is he really all that?”
  • “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
  • Lance rolls his eyes. “Captain Keith Kogane. I don’t get it though. The guy has horrible hair. The guy’s a murderer. I mean, not saying we aren’t but he’s like—”
  • “Don’t you have something to attend to, Master Lance?” Shiro raises an eyebrow. After that no one dares talking to him about it.
  • He has no idea that he brings his ship to the Red Sea. Even Shiro is shock at this.  
  • “Oh boy. Did not expect this at all,” Hunk whispers to Pidge and Lance.
  • Pidge is the first one to ask, “Captain, why are we here?”
  • “I… I don’t know, Pidge. I honestly don’t know.” Shiro answers breathlessly. However, his eyes roams around the place. Looking for something. For someone.
  • “I don’t think he’ll appear,” Pidge says softly. “No one has seen him.”
  • Despite everything, they stay. Shiro will do anything just to look at those dark purple eyes once again. He leaves the ship and goes to shore hours after midnight. He just stares at the sea. “Keith, where are you?”
  • “Looking for me?” Someone whispers in his ear.
  • Shiro jumps in his place and looks around. No one is there. Just him.
  • He hears someone laughing softly. “Why are you here, great ol young Pirate Lord of the Black Sea?” the voice asks.
  • “I… I can’t stop thinking about you,” Shiro admits.
  • The laughing stops and Shiro could feel it’s speaking in front of him. “I told you. I’m cursed.”
  • “I already know that, but is there a way to break the curse?”
  • “You don’t know anything about my curse,” Keith sneers.
  • “What do you mean?” Shiro asks, looking straight at nothing.
  • “Has it ever occurred to you how the hell am I able to defend my ship if I have no crew? How no ship ever makes it out of my territory?”
  • “No. Keith, show yourself,” Shiro requests. “Please.”
  • “If I do that you will definitely stop thinking about me. And you’ll sail away from this place forever.”
  • What is he talking about? “I’m sure I can handle it.” Shiro just really wants to look at those beautiful eyes once again.
  • “Don’t say I didn’t warn you,” Keith sighs.
  • A few moments later, right in front of Shiro is a rotten corpse wearing clothes full of blood. Shiro swallows the lump in his throat. He looks up and sees that Keith’s face has empty eye sockets. He takes a step back. It’s too much to take in one go. It’s not the Keith he saw months ago. This one looks very disturbing.
  • “I told you,” Keith disappears again instantly but Shiro was quick enough to grab his face and suddenly, Keith’s human face starts to form around where Shiro’s touching him. Shiro’s eyes widens in surprise as Keith’s dark eyes mirrors his expression.
  • Shiro smiles softly at Keith and places both of his hands on the younger pirate’s face. The second eye forms and then the rest of his whole face is visible. “You’ve got the most interesting curse, Captain Kogane.” He starts caressing Keith’s cheek. “I’d like to hear all about it, if you don’t mind.”
  • Keith slowly smiles at him, nodding as he leans into his touch.

It’s 2017 and I’m still fucking pissed Deaf West Spring Awakening didn’t get Tony or a tour or a longer run. They did not make an entire musical bilingual through choreography and cast incredibly hardworking and talented deaf actors/actresses to hit every single musical cue to be disrespected like this. This is why we can’t have nice things in theater.

Creepypasta #1255: My Daughter Had An Imaginary Friend

Length: Medium

I’ve always found imaginary friends creepy. You hear these stories about children having imaginary friends that are the ghosts of confederate soldiers, or children who point to pictures of dead relatives and say, that’s grandpa, he plays with me every night. I hate those stories. I always hoped my own kid would not have the necessary imagination – but when we moved into the townhouse, it turned out she did. A few weeks after the move, she loudly declared the existence of her imaginary friend at the kitchen table.

“I played with the clown last night, mommy!”

“The clown?” I frowned. She didn’t have any clown toys. I had seen It at an impressionable age, and my relationship with clowns has been  strained ever since. No clown toys were allowed to enter the household.

“The clown came to my room and played with me after you went to sleep!”

Oh god, I remember thinking, why did it have to be a clown?

“Was the clown nice?” I asked carefully.

“Very nice. He gave me chocolate!”

I frowned, but a smile tugged at the corner of my mouth. Of course her imaginary friend would give her chocolate. She loved chocolate.

“Sweetie, you know you’re not allowed to eat chocolate, right?” I smiled at her.

She giggled. “But it was magic chocolate! The kind you can eat and eat and eat and eat and never get a tummy ache!”

“That sounds like really good chocolate!”

“It is!”

I reasoned that the move had triggered the need for an imaginary friend. It wasn’t surprising; our old apartment was in a building with a few other kids, while our neighbours at the townhouse were all older. There were certainly kids in the area, but none would play in the adjacent yards. Instead, we had an elderly couple on one side, and a slightly younger widower on the other. Neither had grandchildren that came to visit, so the yards were empty.

So Ellie made up an imaginary friend. It wasn’t too strange, I just didn’t understand why on earth she had to go and make up a clown.

It went on for years.

I learned that the clown lived in her closet, that he was very nice, and that he would give her magical chocolate sometimes.

At one point she stopped talking about him, and I hoped it would be the end of it. I asked her about it.

“So you don’t play with the clown anymore?”

Awww Manders never thought I'd live enough to see you defending Frank and Claire relationship or saying Cait/Tobias sex scenes are hotter than Cait/Sam ones. I used to enjoy your snark about Fronk sooo much, what a bummer! Seeing you taking sides with him.

See, now this is incredibly irritating. I think you completely missed the point of my post. Nowhere did I say Claire/Frank sex was hotter than Claire/Jamie sex. NOT. ANYWHERE. And in fact, that’s why Claire and Frank wouldn’t work out. Once Claire had sex with Jamie, there was no comparison. Not only sexually, she would also never be emotionally fulfilled by Frank ever again. Claire and Frank were doomed because he only accepted parts of her, with conditions, while Jamie accepted all of her, unconditionally. Also, I think you completely missed larger points about Claire and that’s pretty unfortunate. Go ahead, focus on Claire and Frank and use it as a reason to ignore Claire’s strength, how she’s a survivor, a great mother as Jamie knew she would be, and goes on to become a doctor in the 1950s, which is pretty bad ass. Frank is only one part of Claire’s fucking awesome journey.

If you want to know why I love Claire, why I’m so protective of her, you only need to know that my mother told my alcoholic father to get help or leave. He left. But she carried on and raised four awesome children on her own while working nights as an intensive care nurse. We had extended family to help, but she did it all. And she didn’t have the memory of a great love to cling to. When life gets tough, you keep going. That’s Claire and that’s my mom.

Don’t put words in my mouth. Sorry you miss the snark. I hate Frank and I can’t wait for the turtle-necked little shit to die.

Why does it feel like this cb wasn't as hyped as the previous ones? Since we won a bbmas I thought this cb would the cb of the century or something, did people not like DNA so much? Not today and spring day was hyped more... even fire and bst! People talked about those for soo long but with DNA it feels like people have already moved on, of course there's a lot of people taking about DNA but it feels less than what I expected...

Not sure what’s your criteria for cb of the century though hehe~ i think this cb is hyped in its own right. I mean we’re really breaking a lot of records for it. And have accomplished so much and it’s only been 4 days. For one I just think a lot of armys weren’t too fond of DNA as the title track. Which is perfectly fine I might add. Us fans are the most critical of their work in the first place. But I think the album as a whole, a lot of people liked.

But also, the DNA mv was simple enough that there was no need to make theories and read theories and stuff. Which I really like tbh. I really didn’t want another emo mv. It’s great to just watch the video and have fun and enjoy the music. Also maybe bcoz it’s September and school started for a lot of fans. So although we work a lot behind the scenes, maybe not much visibly in social media or something? That’s why probably you feel like there’s not much hype :)

but honestly don’t worry too much this album is doing great so far! We just have to consistently work hard to stream the music and mv to win music shows and to also have good results for bb200 and hot100.

Fun Shakespeare Fact of the Day

You’ll notice that Shakespeare’s later comedies, like AS YOU LIKE IT and TWELFTH NIGHT, have fool characters with a very different “brand” of humor than his earlier ones. They’re intellectuals rather than the butt of jokes. That’s because Shakespeare’s acting company replaced their old clown, Will Kempe, with a dude named Robert Armin and incorporated some of his pre-existing jokes, songs, and general shtick.

You know how famous franchise actors will sometimes choose not to renew their contracts because of “artistic differences” and pursue their own independent projects? Well, that might have happened here. Will Kempe probably played roles like Dogberry and Bottom and possibly Falstaff and was pretty darn famous, especially for physical comedy and dancing.

We aren’t sure exactly why he left the Lord Chamberlain’s Men (did he quit or was he fired?), but we do know exactly what he decided to do right afterward, and boy howdy, was it weird.

He pulled a big publicity stunt that he called the “Nine Days Wonder:” Morris-dancing over 100 miles from London to Norwich, crowds lining up to see him go by.

Shortly afterward, he fell into obscurity and died in poverty, while Robert Armin and Shakespeare revolutionized comedy.

I’m not sure what’s funnier, imagining Will Kempe as the big star whose career tanked and ended up on Dancing with the Stars, OR the guy who loved dancing around with bells on so much that he chose to leave behind everything for true artistic fulfillment.

For beta to omega, what if Anakin captures Obi-Wan when he goes back to coruscant to get the twins? Does he lock him away? Do they bond?

There is excitement vibrating in his stomach and a rumbling chuff escapes him before he can control it.

Because Obi-Wan’s has finally, after a year and a half, been caught.

On Coruscant of all places and Anakin knows that it most likely means the omega tried to kidnap the twins but… but he didn’t succeed and now he’s back and Appo has given him directions to a landing pad where they are.

Anakin had left for a week long mission and apparently his clever little omega had tried to take advantage of that, had tried his best to regain the twins but had failed.

The ship lands with a little thump.

Anakin’s walking so fast that Piett can barely keep up with him when the ramp of the shuttle finally decends and…

And Force this is not what he expected.

There are troopers everywhere, keeping the public at bay, Appo is outright yelling at Tarkin of all people and there is smoking debris all around the landing pad, coming from a half constructed and now ruin floor above.

What in Force name?

And then an all to familiar iron smell reaches him.


Vader barely notices the sudden sharp silence as he is noticed by his men and Tarkin’s entourage, eyes focused on Pink who is kneeling by a black clothed figure, the medic’s hands working furiously and Anakin can see the pool of blood around him as the medic kneels in said crimson liquid.

The alphas steps feels mechanical as he moves closer to to the clone and he finally sees what he dreads.

Obi-Wan, on his back, a piece of durasteel rebar piercing through his stomach and pinning him to the landing pad, his eyes are closed and his beautiful hair stained with blood as his lips are pale from blood loss along with the burgeoning colors of bruises on the exposed pale skin where Obi-Wan’s clothes has torn.

There’s a horrifying hitch in his breath that terrifies the Sith to the depths of his core and blood pounds through his ears covering almost all other noises.

Before he can ask what happened, Pink eyes shot up to him and are filled with relief. “Lord Vader, can you cut this here and perhaps squeeze the underpart of the rebar off? We need to transport him to a medical facility as quickly as possible but he’s pinned.” The medic gestured to the rebar pole.

Pulling his saber from his belt, Anakin ignited the red blade and held onto the end pointing up of the rebar as he cut the lower part off at the indicated length before extinguishing his blade and focusing the Force to the other side of rebar coming out of the others back, snapping it off so Obi-Wan was no longer pinned.

He knew why Pink was not just pulling it out, knew that if he did, Obi-Wan would just bleed to death in moments.

But it still hurt to see the other like this, hurt to see his omega so…

Pink waved over to some of his vods, both of them hurrying over with a stretcher.

“Can you transport him safely?” Anakin rumbled deeply, his voice almost a strained growl.

“Yes sir, the rebar was the only thing keeping us here as we didn’t have the cutting tools avalible, we’ll have the medics on standby the moment we arrive and use the emergency traffic lane giving us priority.” Pink nodded, staring up at him. “But perhaps…you would be able to lift him better then we could, more stability and less jarring.”

The Sith nodded at that and hooked his blade back on his belt, waiting for the two clones to get the hover stretcher completely ready before slowly and carefully lifting Obi-Wan.

He still gasped with pain, unseeing green eyes opening in response as the redhead gurgled and Force Anakin never wanted to hear that again as Obi-Wan suddenly coughed up blood as he was placed down on the stretcher.

Pink was instantly rushing Obi-Wan off before Anakin could say anything and then he was gone with Obi-Wan.

Slowly Lord Vader turned and looked at a still furious looking Appo and a pale lipped Tarkin who looked blank faced but the Sith could feel the mans fear beneath the mask the other was sporting. “What.Happened?” He snarled lowly, all alphas tensing and omegas all over itching to expose their throats in surrender.

Even the betas were uncomfortable at Vader’s oppressive being at this moment.

“Grand Moff Tarkin deemed it best to shoot Master Kenobi down and had his guards do so.” Appo answered promptly, his voice tight.

All Clones had very detailed and specific orders when it came to Obi-Wan. No lethal force to be used and they would not dare to disobey such and order directly about Lord Vader’s mate.

Appo gestured up towards the broken floor under construction above them. “Master Kenobi fell, straight down towards the platform from forty meters above and hit the ground hard but he was still moving… until the rebar hit him along with some of the debris that came down.” The commander told him without hesitation.

“To be fair, he is a Jedi and is a trai-” Tarkin’s hands scrambled to his throat, clawing at it for air as Vader stared at him.

“He.is.my.mate.” The blond alpha snarled, tempted to just snap the others neck, the dragon beneath his skin snarling in agreement at the threat to his mate.

But the Emperor still needed Tarkin and with a disgusted snarl he let the other go “You only still draw breath because of your usefulness to the Empire, do not mistake this for mercy Tarkin.”  He snarled and then he twirled around on his heel to meet Piett and Appo’s gaze. “The medical center. Now.” He said shortly before he headed for the ship he had arrived in, raw anger enough to make any alpha bow for him as he boarded his ship.

He had a mate to see and insure the safety of.

I read you for some kind of poem

It reminds her that what they have is little, no nothing, more than an arrangement. He is a prince and has all the power in the world. (And she has little more than her ability to stay invisible.) Jon and Sansa AU.

- - -

They make fun of how she always tries to keep clean. Trying to keep mud from splattering her hem despite sleeping on the floor at night.

They tease her for her love for songs of romance and princes. They snicker at how she stays hidden in the tunnels just to listen to another ballad sung in court.

Varys even calls her his Little Ladybird.

So writing that sick-Peter fic (it’s getting so out of hand my guys) I realized something very important:

Stakar banished Yondu from the clans when Yondu already had picked Peter up.

That means two things:


First off, one day Yondu came back from that meeting, from his judgement by Stakar and the others, back to Peter, and was completely upset and confused and hurt, and Peter had no freaking clue what was going on. Because I bet Yondu never even told him about Stakar – that there were other Ravagers, perhaps, but not about the fact that he was close friends with them, that they were family. And he surely never told Peter why he had been banished, that he had been banished, because if he did, he would have had to explain to the boy what had happened, what he had done, and he would sooner or later have to explain why exactly he had picked Peter up.

So we have a hurt, lonely Yondu, who only had his ragtag crew and Peter left, a crew who probably either blamed Peter for all of it or wondered why they kept the boy if they could make money with him, and Peter who had no idea of anything.

Yondu was damn lonely during one of his hardest times, and I think that is partially why he got so attached to Peter, the last push – because Peter was all he had left, along with the few people in his crew whom he could have called crew. Peter was Yondu’s new purpose, his redemption and salvation all in once.


And second, that means that Yondu could have told Stakar about the one child he hadn’t sold to Ego, mention it to redeem himself, but he didn’t. He had that one chance at his hand to soothe Stakar’s disappointment by saying that he had saved one child, but he didn’t.

Why, that’s honestly a mystery to me.

Perhaps Yondu thought Stakar wouldn’t listen to him. Perhaps he tried and Stakar really didn’t listen. Or perhaps he feared Stakar would tell him to bring Peter back to Terra, where he belonged, and he couldn’t do that, because there was the risk that Ego would just send someone else to pick up the child, and Yondu wouldn’t let that happen.

In any case, this thought process just made me feel a whole lot of pity and sadness for and about blue space dad again, and even more respect for what he did right, in the end.

"I'm a target in a way most entrepreneurs are not," says the Oscar-winning lifestyle entrepreneur.

“I went to Atlanta to do Avengers 4, so I’m in and out for that, and it’s weird to go back and forth. We’re growing fast, and balls are dropping all the time. But honestly, I was on set and thought, “You sit here for two hours sipping tea, Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle are making me laugh hysterically — why the hell did I give this up?””

It seems to me that we have a pretty good confirmation that Pepper will appear in both “Infinity War” and “Avengers 4″ and not only that.

Team Iron Man (Tony, Pepper, Rhodey) will share screen again?

Honestly my dream come true. Aaah. Please be like in the comics were they fight together in their armors :) But if it’s only a casual conversation I’ll be happy the same :D

Why do we as a fandom constantly characterize zoe as being agressive or intimidating like. Have you heard her in only us? Her voice and her in general is so gentle and sweet, why did we give the “uwu cinnamon roll” role to evan when the whole musical is him taking adventage of someone’s suicide and zoe is just tyring to live her life

Sanha hated him. He hated him so much. He didn’t understand why Bin seemed to like him as much as he did. Was it because they could both manipulate fire? If that was the case, it was a dumb reason.

This was why Sanha was walking just a little bit faster, leaving the two of them behind. He didn’t want to stand next to him, he didn’t even want to breathe the same air as Minhyuk.
