wow sorry about the long post everyone

Mark Lee is doing so much as a 17 year old just to achieve his dreams.

He was introduced in SMROOKIES at the age of fourteen, debuted twice when he was 16 and just as he turned 17, he debuted again as a leader. The first time he debuted in NCT U, Mark helped to write the lyrics to their debut song. He came out here with a verse and flow so good that everyone who heard the song was shocked and then even more shocked to find out that a 16 year old was the one who possessed all that skill. In NCT 127, Mark helped write the lyrics to the title song as well, with another iconic rap, then in that same album he helped write the lyrics to Mad City, the song that has everyone who listened to it on edge and eager to hear more. Mark delivered such skill in those songs I’m still amazed that he was 16. Just some days after he turned 17, he debuted a third time and once again wrote lyrics to the song but this time he didn’t write it in only Korean, but in Mandarin as well. I’m pretty sure he’s not fluent in Mandarin so he had to learn, mark sure his grammar was correct and ensure that his lines were rhyming and had a good flow. Mark did all that. Not to mention that those units were back to back, he debuted 3 times back to back with very little break. Mark undoubtedly gave up a regular sleeping schedule, a normal life hanging with friends, getting a regular education, years of spending holidays with family and relaxing together, so that he can fulfil his dreams. While some members would be doing promotions with one unit, Mark would have to do promos with all three, he’d have to perform all three songs, and if the schedule included once again and mad city then mark would have to perform 5 songs. Mark is really out here pulling thru all this handwork, at the young age of 17 just to achieve his dreams and goals. Mark is literally the definition of ‘work towards your dreams’. He’s never given up, he’s taken on the challenge of 3 units back to back and not once during a performance has he half assed it, nooo, Mark Lee puts so much energy and strength and determination into every single performance you can never tell if he’s tired. 

One day while he was a tiny, the thought ‘I want to be a rapper’ came into baby Mark’s head and every since then, he has worked towards it and has never given up. Mark Lee has made so many sacrifices to reach his dreams not even I think I can be that committed to achieving my own dreams. I’m just still so shocked that Mark Lee is only 17, and has done and given up so much for something he wants. He had the aspiration of something, and he’s paved his own way for it. I don’t think words can explain how proud I am to be supporting him. I am always going to support him 100% in everything he’s doing cause i know he’s making so many sacrifices and has gone thru so much just to live his dreams, he’s only 17 but he’s such an admirable person.
Mark Lee is truly a blessing and an amazing role model to any and everyone.

Gabriel is Hawkmoth theory

Okay i really need to explain why I am almost 100 percent positive that Gabriel Agreste is Papillion. After seeing the latest episodes, the writers are dropping hint bombs like no tomorrow. Unless they want us to think he is the evil villain and shock us with someone completely different (which is something I honestly wouldn’t be surprised about either) they are practically telling us it’s him. Let me show you (warning: will contain spoilers from the origins episode and simonsayz): 

Clue 1:

Boom. Right off the bat, we are shown Gabriel’s wife in a locket in the evil guy’s hand which should set off some warning signs of Gabriel Agrests is Hawkmoth (but who am I to say). Anyway, let’s continue..

Clue 2:

Next, which I thought was ironic, he gets angry *cough* cause why would he tolerate someone controlling him when he does it in his spare time *cough* PLUS hang on, check out his RING. YES THE ONE ON HIS MIDDLE FINGER WHICH LOOKS QUITE FAMILIAR…

HMMMM…..I don’t know about you but it looks like the SAME EXACT RING ON THE MIDDLE FINGER OF THE BAD GUY. But I could just be seeing things

Clue 3:

……why are you so interested in her earrings suddenly Gabriel? Maybe because YOU WANT THEM FOR ULTIMATE POWER 

AND WHY TAKE INTEREST IN CHAT NOIR’S RING?? He’s got places to be, that’s not near you (oh wait, you’re hardly around your son enough anyway OH)

Oh right, nearly forgot. Even though it was a risk, you probably planned to agree to this cause it brought you closer than ever to the real thing and THAT’S why you took so much interest in them as GABRIEL TO BE INCONSPICUOUS *heavily hinting*

Clue 4:

Here we have him looking at this lovely mosaic thing of his wife (which might mean its a secret entrance to a secret lair full of butterflies or something)…

Which might explain why in this scene we see as Hawkmoth just entered his secret lair and is a little angry (maybe cause an army of brainwashed people raided his house) IF *heavy on the if* he is Gabriel..

 Finally, Clue 5:

The akuma literally makes him a butterfly (which would be irony at its finest; could have been anything else but no, had to be a butterfly Papillion’s specialty). 

Let us not forget Adrien’s shoes which are designed by his father in the form of a black butterfly (see where this is going with the hints of butterfly references that link to Gabriel)

So yea, just needed to get THAT out of my system. If you weren’t already convinced Gabriel was Hawkmoth, this might have given better insight on the debate (they both have the same voice actor for crying out loud!!). It really doesn’t matter on the looks honestly. So what if the shape of their face or eyes don’t quite match up, its the signs that are hidden that tell the truth. Besides, I like to think of that as Papillion transforms, he becomes more determined causing his features to change. As we have already seen, the person on the other side of the mask can act and look completely different, but that doesn’t change who they are.

((Ah Oh my god it’s been so long! Sorry these are so terribly late, but here are the finished products from the Christmas event I posted about long ago;;

Thanks to everyone who submitted ships, and I hope to finish other Christmas-related asks and get back on track with this blog!

Ps since there were 2 rushun requests, heres another one I made a while back and never posted;))

constantlyxinxreverie  asked:

8- kabby ... you could write about kabby talking about the kids (clarke, bell, raven, monty, jasper, octavia etc) and who they think is the "fun adult" or something kind of like that? Then they could talk to them and have a vote? So the kids could give their impressions/opinions on them. (( All fun-spirited though !))

Ahh sure!! Happy Belated Birthday! :D Man I haven’t written anything for these two in such a long time I kind of miss it, but I’m sorry about the quality I’m out of practice Thanks for the prompt!! I know it’s supposed to be a “drabble” but it might be a bit longer since I am unskilled in the art of brevity…(Wow after finishing this I have realized that this got a bit long…over 1,000 words…) 

Anyway, here’s some much needed fluff for you all! Takes place post-season 3 madness, everyone is happy and at peace.

[EDIT] Also available on Ao3 :3

This is all in good fun, please don’t take it too seriously

8. “Wanna bet?”

“I absolutely cannot believe that you think you are the fun one.” 

Abby Griffin crossed her arms in disbelief, then continued.

“Back on the Ark, all the kids cringed at your name. Kane. Don’t let Kane catch you skipping classes. Look out, Kane is coming our way. You seriously expect me to believe they like you better than me?”

He walked towards her, smirking, and matched her defiant gaze. “Things change, Abby. People change. I’m a reasonable man. I can be fun. The kids look up to me. But you on the other hand. You’re Clarke’s mother. The kids see you as nothing more than an overly-protective parent, just a mom who worries too much.” 

She wouldn’t deny it, but there was no way she was going to back down. She stood up completely straight in defiance, despite still being too short to talk to him at the same level.

“But that doesn’t mean I can’t be fun. They like me. I let the kids break the rules from time to time. It doesn’t mean they think I’m the strict one.”

“It might.”

She held his gaze, challenging him.

“Wanna bet?”

Clean

Hiii everyone. My name is Marissa, for those of you who don’t know me. I’ve been a fan of Taylor since her first album was released back when I was in 4th grade and have been listening to her music ever since. I’m 17 now, a senior in high school, so I had lots of Taylors songs to help me through middle school and high school. And they really did help me. I had lots of tough times and she made me feel less alone. More loved.

Clean has been my song from 1989 because just before Taylor released the album, my best friend told me she didn’t want to be friends anymore and started hating me. It broke me. She was my everything and I was devastated. It turned out to be for the best because that really was a bad friendship that was causing me depression and anxiety. That all ended on September 29th of 2014. Now it’s been almost 4 months that I’ve been •clean• from that toxic friendship. And that song has gotten me through it all. I keep telling myself that I can make it to 10 months without falling back into old habits I had with the friendship. Taylor was able to do it and so am I. It has been an absolute inspiration for me and a motivation for me to move past this all.

Taylor is playing a show on August 29th this year at Petco in San Diego. I want nothing more than to be able to go and see her when I am exactly 11 months •clean• because what’s better than seeing your idol live on such an important day? Honestly it’s all I want. I’m already seeing her on August 22, but to see her the 29th and possibly meet her would be incredible. I’m trying to convince my mom to let me go. She doesn’t know if I can get noticed by Taylor at all. If it happens she will probably let me go. So if anyone could help me get to see the girl who has gotten me through my darkest times on such an important day, I will love you forever. I already do, but you know I have to say it. Taylor, if you read this, I love you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. See you in August, friend. ♡ taylorswift

yo i just had an epiphany about transgender stuff

(it’ll be long #sorry not sorry)

so okay you know how we can accept things without fully understanding them right? if you’re lost don’t worry i gotchu fam. 

take gravity for example. sure you could take your time and learning all the finer points of gravity, but for the most part, everyone just accepts gravity exists; you pick a thing up and drop it, it falls to the ground. you don’t have to know why because it just happens. 

the same goes for things like lightbulbs or car engines; you don’t necessarily have to know how everything works to make a lightbulb shine or your car to run, but you know that it does. you can see it happen. 

we as a species are very visually oriented. if we can see things happen, we tend to accept them. we learn visual cues from the time we’re tiny babies till well into our adulthood, and we rely heavily on those cues. if we can’t see something or if something goes against those cues we learned, we reject it. a good example of this would be for centuries people thinking the world was flat and rejecting any idea that the world could be round. 

so now how does all this relate to transgender stuff?

i think part of the reason why people don’t accept transgender folks is because they can’t see transgender people. in other words, they can’t see why folks like us are trans. 

i’m sure it’s not anything new to say that people are taught from a very young age the visual cues to tell if someone is a male or a female. the gender binary is strong with us. when people are suddenly confronted with someone who doesn’t conform to what they’ve been taught, they shut down and they reject what they can’t understand. they can’t see it. 

but what i think more people need to understand (no pun intended) is that there’s a difference between understanding and acceptance. you don’t have to understand everything about transgender people or transgender culture to accept that it’s very real. 

(pfff i’m sure this wasn’t anything new to anyone but i just felt like sharing okay bye)
