it’s… LONELY.  to be more powerful than any man you know, and have to live like a shadow.  to be SPECIAL, and have to pretend you’re a fool.  i know how it feels, i… understand.   /   IND. MERLIN FROM BBC MERLIN,  WRITTEN BY MARTA   /   WARLOCK

Yoongi deadass could get away with anything he wants in his group like. We like to talk about Jungkook being beloved and getting away with things but let’s talk about yoongi who cheats, lies, steals, has extreme favoritism, and on top of that, is shameless about it. Forreal he doesn’t even prepare a counter argument. It always goes, *yoongi gets caught doing some shady stuff during a game* “I didn’t do it.” *all of bts, scratching their heads* “I guess he didn’t do it then, Idk.” Tale as old as time, either yoongi is going to cheat/deny/lie/steal, or he’s gonna casually try to lose on purpose so he doesn’t have to put in the effort. Or ya know, he’s the MC and he’s gonna pick one members side over the others when they’re clearly wrong but he’s loyal and he’s gonna help a brother out. Its such a beautiful tradition at this point. Why don’t we talk about this as a fandom?

“With those words, the rose petals begin to float up, whirling, and as they rise from the floor, so does the Beast. In the air he spins, slowly at first, then faster as the petals surround him, swirling and multiplying.” (Enchanted Table Read)

i wanted to try comparing their heights… abubear is so small oh my god

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.”)

anonymous asked:

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.

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.

GOT7 Newscaster AU
  • They’re the morning show, and have a love-hate relationship with it 
  • At the beginning of the day, everyone is already dead. Wake up time is 2:00 AM, and Youngjae and Yugyeom always whine about their job choices 
  • First brodcast is at 4:30, and they barely rest during commercial breaks because of changes in script and touch ups and it’s hell 
  • After the first brodcast, there’s another at 5:30, and the last is 6:30, but there’s always work afterwards. It’s a truly hectic job, but it’s Their Job so it’s okay- most of the time
  • Jaebum is the floor director, and is part of the unofficial morning hype crew. He doesn’t show up on camera, and the rest of them hate him for it
  • Jaebum knows everyone’s coffee orders by heart and massages his poor babies’ shoulders when they’re half asleep and getting make-up done. A true dad bro
  • Jinyoung and Yugyeom are the main newscasters, who inform the general public of the things happenin and so forth
  • Jinyoung does “Word of the Day” and Yugyeom mimicks him with a funny face to lighten it up because literally No One Cares Bro (but Jinyoung is so into it it’s cute) 
  • They do local news, so it’s more light hearted in general- no one wants to watch depressing news when they wake up! And Jinyoung and Yugyeom are good at making people at home happy
  • Yugyeom always asks people at home what they’re eating for breakfast, and playfully scolds viewers “you better be eating! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and it’s the cutest thing ever- even though he never eats breakfast, which his twitter followers never fail to point out 
  • Because of their relaxed broadcasts, funny interactions with each other, and allaround handsomeness, each person (sans Jaebum, who doesn’t even use social media) has a mass following on Instagram and Twitter. Jackson and Bambam being the most popular follower count-wise
  • Mark is the traffic informer guy and Bambam is the meteorologist and both use the green screen, which is next to the front of the building- which has like giant windows instead of walls
  • Bambam is always interacting with people passing by and he’s become a local internet meme- #weatherbamselfie #NewsBam #IDABBEDWITHTHEWEATHERMAN, etc 
  • Mark is more chill, and knows that nobody really cares about the traffic. Even so, he’s no stranger to the mass following on social media. He “doesn’t believe” Bambam when he says it’s because of his looks (tho he knows it’s the truth)  
  • There’s two dogs on set- Coco and Miho. Miho sometimes interrupts Bambam when he’s giving a forecast and Bambam ends up both giving the weather and throwing Miho’s toy- only for the puppy to come back to him. You can hear laughing in the background 
  • There was once a bug on the Live Traffic Cam, and the green screen showed it and Mark SCREAMED and will never live it down, ever 
  • One time Yugyeom couldn’t wake up enough to put in his earpiece and ended up fumbling with it on Live Television while Jinyoung laughed at him 
  • Another time, Jinyoung accidentally said “food fuck” instead of “food truck” and the rest is history
  • “At least I’m not into foodplay" 
  • "Oh I heard about this good food fuck that’s stationed down the street" 
  • Bambam wore a black and white stripped turtle neck one day, and will never wear one ever again. Reason: when Yugyeom and Jinyoung transitioned from regular news to the forecast, Yugyeom announced with such a serious tone "And Now, Weather, with The Hamburglar.” And Bambam had to be forcibly reminded by Mark that he couldn’t tackle a news anchor while they were Live
  • Mic check usually includes things along the lines of “I want to kill myself, one, two, but first I’ll kill Yugyeom, one, two” “I want to go home, one, two, and get away from this abuse, one, two" 
  • Jinyoung constantly flirts with the makeup artists and Yugyeom fake barfs 24/7 
  • Sometimes to mess with Yugyeom, Jinyoung and Youngjae bribe the people in the script office with lunch to make slight changes to Yugyeom’s script. The shade of red on Yugyeom’s face is one of the greatest things on earth
  • Jinyoung and Yugyeom are the most busy, having to do promo videos and prerecordings, and while the rest of the boys wait for them to finish up, they take Snapchat videos of them with filters and try to make them laugh. Yugyeom is weak
  • There’s a running joke that when Mark does his report, he keeps his left arm glued to his side and only moves his right arm, but barely. Even though he’s more free flowing now, when he first started he was so awkward. At random times, one of them (mainly Jackson) will stiffen his arms and waddle around and EVERYONE LOSES IT except Mark ofc 
  • To mess with both anchors (because what else is there to do, honestly) Mark and Bambam convince the stylists to have Yugyeom and Jinyoung wear matching suits, and it’s always too late for the two to change anything and they’re always so??? Flustered about it. It’s hilariously adorable
  • One time Bambam forgot about the green screen and wore green pants to work… nobody said anything because everybody’s an asshole, and Bambam didn’t realize until he saw himself on screen. He was so embarrassed he flattened himself against the wall, but in the end, told the forecast "like a ninja” and only covered his face when he finished 
  • Being the floor director, Jaebum is constantly moving around the studio, in and out of rooms, up and down different floor levels, and always on his feet. There’s a sense of respect for him, because before, during, and after each broadcast he’s telling everyone what’s happening and waving his arms around and pointing at cameras and making sure everyone has their scripts and earpieces and the field reporters are where they should be- it’s crazy for him. Though this doesn’t stop the boys from messing with him lol. He’s constantly Stressed™
  • They make it up to him, though, and always treat him to things after each workday is done
  • Youngjae and Jackson are field reporters, who go out on the street and to local events like fesivals or parades, and the occasional farmers market. The inside workers envy their freedom, but only slightly because of the things they go through 
  • Youngjae once had to go interview miniature pony handlers, and while he was talking to the camera, Live, a pony came over and PEED ON HIM. It was traumatic
  • Jackson once got yelled and lectured at by an old lady because his hair was bleached, and took all with a smile, though he was constantly makin eye contact with the camera 
  • Youngjae was at the beach interviewing a group of surfers, and a really hot dude came over and slung an arm over his shoulder and he Couldn’t Stop Messing Up His Lines Holy Crap 
  • Both Jackson and Youngjae are afraid of the “Runners”- the people who go behind field reporters and yell things like “OH MY GOD IM ON TV” or run by them shirtless or something. Once one of them accidentally crashed into Jackson and he continued his report from the ground
  • There was a grand openeing to an amusement park, and both Jackson and Youngjae were sent to go and report together. In the script, they had to ride the “FALLEN ANGEL: DEATH DROP” and Jinyoung and Yugyeom from base phisically tore their earpieces out because the screaming was so loud. Jinyoung still whines about his wounded eardrum
  • Once when Youngjae was out doing a market brodcast, he didn’t hear the cameraman say it was Live and couldn’t hear the anchors calling for him, and Twitter EXPLODED because he was singing along to the random street musician and “Well, instead of hearing about fruit stands, I think we all would rather like this." 
  • Youngjae didn’t notice until he saw the cameraman crying 
  • When Jaebum got sick (from when he "visited his parents” aka overworked himself) the studio was IN CHAOS because the stand-in, Jae, was still under the title “floor director-in-training” and holy
  • Jaebum watched the morning news from his place and almost cried when Yugyeom messed up and looked up to where He usually stood and frowned when it wasn’t Him, because He is on His couch and Couldn’t be there for Yugyeom :( he got emo over his favorite bub
  • After the workday, everyone practically ran to Jaebum’s apartment, only stopping to say hi to people who recognized them lol, and demanded he get better!!! But jokingly ofc 
  • They made him soup and treated him like a king for the rest of the day. Youngjae and Jinyoung stayed after everyone else and because of their care, Jaebum was back on his feet in no time. (He wishes he stayed out for longer tho, he loved getting the attention) 
  • Mark accidentally swore on Live Television because as he was walking to the other side of the green screen, he tripped and fell with a loud “SHIT” and it got so quiet he thought if he laid there long enough he would disappear 
  • “There seems to be some trouble over at the traffic center, Yugyeom, how was your morning so far?" 
  • "It was good, though I could have gone for a longer rest. I’m tired." 
  • "Me too." 
  • ”…“ 
  • "I think our traffic center is back to normal, what do you think, Mr. Tuan?" 
  • "I want to die, thank you, and now on 6th street-" 

Just gonna go ahead and say this, don’t attack Arryn or the CRWBY for anything really, but specifically shipping shit.

Since it’s still relatively early in the volume and I’m 99% sure Yang is gonna be in the next chapter (or so I hope), don’t get too pissy and take it out on them. This goes for EVERYONE
