lost dog ended up belonging to a neighbor. guys i was seriously chasing the dog around the block bc it wouldn’t let me pick it up. i eventually just started running towards my house and he chased me and i hung out with him in my garage while figuring out wtf to do because i couldnt even get the pup into my car.
anyway, 2 dudes pulled up across the street in a big ass truck, talking about the workout they just killed or whatever. i asked if it was their dog and they’re like “FUCKIN PAUL!!!” who i’m assuming is another dude roommate who let the dog out.
Some of the paladins being like really testy about being stuck in the one outfit they left in, because “these are like, my least favorite socks!” (Lance) but some of them being fine with it, like Pidge (“I always wear this shirt anyway. It’s my ‘sneaking’ shirt.”)
I see why KPop idols don’t put their REAL selves out there, like letting fans know they actually turn up and drink, smoke, have sex (gasp!), like to party, are attracted to this or that woman, they have to act like innocent, little Angels 24/7 and be so rehearsed to please you little judgmental, annoying little snot nosed kids.
I see some (I hope I don’t make this situation even worse by even bringing it up sigh) kpop “fans” bitching about Vernon wearing a bottom diamond grill in his mouth and jamming to rap music, chilling with his friend, being his self, but Noooo some people (I wouldn’t call fans) are complaining claiming “Oh he’s drunk”, “Noo He’s drinking” “I’m disappointed” “I’m embarrassed” blah blah blah (he was not drinking in the video thooo so wtf? even if he was, he’s legal to drink now anyway so…)“He’s appropriating Blacks” (by wearing a grill in his mouth) ok first of all, everybody and their damn mama wear a grill in their mouth these days, I don’t give a fuck about that, you want to talk about REAL appropriation, people taking from us and claiming it as their own in the entertainment world, that’s real appropriation, people really throw that word around too lightly these days, you need to look it up on youtube, it’s deeper than a damn bottom grill in his mouth, I don’t see him claiming shit, You really don’t know Vernon, who called people out on racism and has the wokest mom that called out the media on appropriating Black people and defends Black people so hard all the time on her account, so you not about to drag Vernon today Satan over a 12 second clip and make him seem like such a bad person for turning up, damn little nigga can’t turn up and have fun?
I wish these so called “fans” would stop judging these idols so harshly, and always trying to start drama, is your life that boring?
LET ‘HOOD ASS VERSON’ OUT HIS SHELL! DAMN! YOU WANNA SEE AN INNOCENT CHILD? GO TO THE PLAYGROUND! SHIIITTTT. and yes I fucking said HOOD ASS? You gonna get mad about that too? I don’t think we know the same Vernon? cuzzzz his ass ALWAYS been like THIS.
i was laughing with someone recently about “tumblr user unpr*tty” and this seems like a good time to remind people that there is literally no point in censoring yourself if you wanna talk shit because i can’t vanity search, if i try it’s nothing but tlc lyrics and a k-pop competition of some kind. this is also why you have to @ me if you wanna show me something and we’re not mutuals.
Do Japanese people understand the meaning of soulmates? Because I saw some tweets and people were confused and even disappointed. Like wtf? Anyway can you please write your own understanding of being soulmates?
I’m probably not the most qualified to answer this, so maybe @fencer-x wouldn’t mind chiming in a bit? But from what I know and have seen it looks like the concept of soulmates in Japan isn’t that different from the West. I don’t really feel comfortable getting into how extensive the Japanese understanding of soulmate is.
For what it’s worth, I have seen zero negative response on my TL. So, I’m not sure where those people are coming from.
As for me, personally? I feel fandom, as a general whole, not just any specific fandom, has sort of taken the idea of soul mate and made it something concretely romantic. However, the concept is that of someone who perfectly completes you, is your other half, and while that often has a romantic end, it’s not in the definition. A soul mate can be a romantic partner, most often the concept is used romantically, but it can also be a best friend.
Have you ever heard the What’s A Soulmate? audio? That’s basically my perfect definition of a soulmate.
As for Kubo’s use of soulmate and it being related to the rings Yuuri and Victor exchanged, that’s a pretty heavy romantic implication. The ring exchange scene itself is already clearly romantic and to try and say it’s just friendly is pretty ignorant, imo, especially with the knowledge that there is no discrimination of love in the YOI world. To say, on top of that, that those rings are a symbol that Yuuri and Victor are soulmates? That’s the romantic concept. Flat out. They are two pieces of one whole, souls meant for each other, a perfect union.
Regarding the Put in Work quest line in AvAc (Tony wants to woo Black Widow, goes to Steve for help (because of course what else does one do?). Steve helps Tony plan out what to do, and then they enact it which also includes Steve helping Tony work out in the new Power Gym (where Steve’s action is Stay Strong and Tony’s action is Stay Sexy), and Tony’s like “hey hey not bad” and Steve’s like “hahaha wait you were serious? Here let me show you how to actually work out” (aw Steve you extra little gym rat you). And then Steve tells Tony he’s proud of him (aw), and has him go off to go ask BW out. Here are my screencaps for this: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) )
ANYWAY so concept:
Howard’s putting pressure on Tony to like get a girlfriend and all that hetero stuff. Tony sets his sights on BW, goes to Steve for help wooing her bc Steve is handsome etc. Poor Steve lowkey has the beginnings of a crush on Tony, but he’s a good and supportive friend and will help Tony in his endeavor. He brainstorms with Tony, plots out a plan, even goes to the gym and gives him tips on how to train. Steve’s lowkey crush becomes a full-blown heart-wrenching crush.
ofc Tony is also besties with Jan so he tells her everything, and she’s like in the background of all this, maybe like goes and hangs out with Nat and sets the stage, like, “Tony’s sensitive pls don’t hurt him.” Nat’s like “…I’ll try but also I won’t just straight-up humor him.”
Tony and Nat go on a date (by going on a mission to Asgard or something? idk the AvAc format is odd) but he can’t stop talking about Steve and along the way Nat helps him realize he has a crush on Steve, and also his dad sucks and he should just get together with Steve. They come back and Steve’s like kinda sad but resigned and ready to be supportive, but the first thing Tony does is like fling himself into Steve’s arms and kiss him and confess, and meanwhile Jan and Nat had been lowkey hanging out (not dating-dating but they’d been getting together for coffee to chat about their dumbo friends and Tony’s dickhead dad and life) and with Tony realizing he wants to date Steve, Jan and Nat officially start dating. Everything is nice and all is well.
