HOSEOK / J-HOPE / HOBI| BTS 5,176 words | A TRIFECTA (comedy/drama/romance) featuring bff yoongi warnings for language
notes: this was supposed to be a short drabble. oops. I hope you enjoy this plebeian way of writing, I can’t bring myself to wax poetic.
To everyone, Hoseok smiles and out-shines the sun, his laughter more beautiful than a choir of angels, he carries that spark within, lifting the mood of all around him.
To me, Hoseok smiles too easily, as if everything is a comedy show, his laughter shrill and sharp, a terrible cackle akin to nails on a chalkboard. His spark is more like firecrackers–annoying, loud, and not very pretty to look at.
Yeah, fuck that guy.
I spent most of my time avoiding his company like the plague, and the most unfortunate aspect of my life–and there were many of those–had to be the fact that we shared a best friend. How Min Yoongi, all round grumpy-guss and sleepy baby, got along with the human equivalent of microphone feedback, the world may never know.
Summary of an
overheard conversation from a coffee shop that I thought was
interesting. It took place between an older black man and his white
Black Man: … Okay, another thing-
Why is it black guys only get cast as good guys?
White Man: Haha, wait, you want
more black people to be cast as bad guys? Anyway, that’s not true,
I’ve seen black bad guys In movies.
Black Man: No it is true! It is.
Name me one black supervillian, can you name me one right now?
White Man: Uhhh….
Black Man: See, there it is, you
can’t even name one!
White Man: Haha I bet I could
name one, but I’d need a minute
Black Man: No, see, it’s like,
people are afraid to cast a black guy as a villain, because they
don’t wanna say “black guys are villains” and then have everyone
up their ass about killing the guy at the end. But see, that’s messed
up because, that’s just less work for all the black actors out there.
Isn’t nobody gonna be mad if like, some black dude was cast as the
next ‘Darth Vader’ or some shit like that, I know a ton of black
dudes who’d be like “Oh shit, yeah, check it out, the mother
fucking new Darth Vader is a brother!” Who doesn’t want to be Darth
White Man: Aaah I see what
Black Man: Right?
White Man: So you’re saying
like, liberals in Hollywood are going out of their way trying to
protect black people in stupid ways, and they’re actually making
things worse at times.
Black Man: Exactly! Exactly, and
it’s like, you can feel all of Hollywood, all of the media trying to
tip-toe around you and shit, like, you can feel people “trying not
to offend you” in the dumbest fucking ways, man. And they’re
missing the bigger point-
White Man: Which is?
Black Man: The bigger point is-
Black dudes don’t need to be treated special. You don’t have to try
not to kill motherfuckers in a movie if they’re black, especially if
that means you’re gonna end up putting less black people in the
movie. You just have to like, make an attempt, to see that they’re
included. That’s it-
White Man: I see-
Black Man: -That’s all. Because
there are black villains in real life.
White Man: Right.
Black Man: And white ones, and
Asian ones, and everything else. So go ahead on, and throw that shit
in there, put in your bad guys of the various races, just make sure
that ALL you’re showing of any one race isn’t just as villains or
something. Like you don’t want it to be where like: the only Chinese
dudes you ever see in a movies are, like, bank robbers or some stupid
shit like that.
White Man: Yeah. I know we’ve
seen that problem before in movies, where like one race is always
cast a certain way, and it may not necessarily even be a cultural
stereotype, it’s almost like a movie convention. Things like the
“Magical Black Man” or whatever-
Black Man: Right, mhmm, the
“Magical Negro”, yep that’s a thing. That came out of voodoo
White Man: Out of voodoo?
Black Man: Yeah, back in the
slave days, when slaves were coming over from Africa with African
religions, then slowly mixing Christianity into it, it made a
different type of worship. That’s where black people starting getting
that reputation as “all spiritual” and shit like that, it’s
because slaves were throwing in all that “African mysticism” and
shit into their Christianity. So that Magical Negro thing is a bit of
a stereotype from black culture, that’s why people are mad. It’s
like, the helpful Black Servants that’s all ‘deep and spiritual’ is
helping White Folks, some people see it as a remnant from those
White Man: Oh wow.
Black Man: That’s
just the most negative viewpoint of it though, I’m not saying that’s
what I believe. That’s just what the people that hate that character
the most think. Personally, I just think it’s one of those things
that started happening in movies, like everything else. Someone saw a
magical black person the first time it was done, and was like “Okay,
that worked in that movie, I’ll put that in mine.” And so on. Maybe
at some point too, people started to be like “Oh! I can squeeze a
black person in this movie! I’ll get this shit made cause the troupe
works, and I’ll get extra points for squeezing a black person in
White Man: Hahaha
Black Man: Yeah, but that whole
magical Nergo thing dosen’t really bother me, as long as there are
other roles too. So long as black guys are getting the villian roles
too, they can keep the magical negro role, that’s alright with me.
(beat) I’ll tell you what does get me though, is these
superhero, Sci-Fi, fantasy movies.
White Man: What
like the Avengers?
Black Man: Yeah Avengers, Hunger
Games, fucking, Avatar and whatever, all that.
Avatar had Zoe Saldana in it, she was co-starring.
Man: Well, Avatar maybe was a bad example-
Hunger Games too, I’m not saying there couldn’t be even more
black people represented, but I think there was a whole village that
was almost exclusively black in that movie, so you can’t say they
weren’t represented at all.
Black Man: Yeah… well
you might have me on that one. I guess some is never enough you know,
more black people, load em up!
White Man: Hahaha, just
the whole cast just-
Black Man: Haha sure, I
wouldn’t mind seeing that a time or two outside of a Tyler Perry
movie. But it doesn’t need to be all black, all the time, other races
are good too, I like watching white people on screen. Lots of great
white actors- love Bruce Willis and shit-
White Man: Haha, I’m just teasing
Black Man: I guess what I was saying with the
superhero/sci-fi thing, and I can’t really think of a good example,
so maybe it’s not as common as I thought, but it’s where people have
some rationale for why all the people in a movie would be white. For
example, you might have a movie about Superheros, and someone will
come out like “Well, they’re all from this certain fictional
country, which is mostly white” And I’m like “It’s fictional!
It’s a location you made up! Can you not make up some black people in
that country?” It’s like, you can have people leaping over cars, or
space aliens blowing shit up, but a black guy in a space suit would
rip you out of the movie?
White Man: You know, you’re
right in that I think I’ve heard logic along those lines before, but
I’m having trouble thinking of an example.
Yeah, well anyway, more black Darth Vaders, that’s the main
For the idea thing: Black Siren meeting Team Legends accidentally and she has her redemption arc with team legends.
honestly what happens is sara shows up, punches oliver clean in the jaw and is like im here for my evil sister? no ifs ands or buts she’s coming with me
black siren: no i’m good… thanks sara: 1-800-did i ask you? you’re going to learn to love again and we’re going to teach you black siren: I REALLY AM GOOD THANKS
so basically they turn the s h a m e c u b e into a bedroom for black siren so that she can’t use her powers and like, i’m sure at some point someone forgets to lock the door and she’s just wandering around the ship like, damn it i’m stuck in the time stream and if i don’t get out of here, they’re going to make me play jenga again
god help her she does have some fondness for sara. she might deny it until her dying breath but nobody’s killing that little brat but laurel her goddamn self
sara: aw that means you love me black siren: nope. nope
mick and black siren get along famously. this is not good news. for anyone
honestly at some point black siren is like come on assholes, let’s be fun. let’s break some rules. stop being nerds, be cool like me. let’s rob a bank. let’s commit a murder. let’s go dance on tables and blow up cars mick: GOD YES ray: i just want to be liked so okay
honestly ray coming to see her sometimes and just, talking to her. no judgement, just talking. and fuck, she hates him for being so damn sweet to her with no other motives just because he is sweet, how dare he try to understand her? what an asshole
black siren: i will literally do anything just never make me play Munchkin again it’s so fucking entry level

You’re all I’ve seen front he beginning. A magic I’ve never experienced before, black magic that leaves me entranced. We’re almost out of time. Just once, give me a place to slip in.
In the slowly waning night I lean in closer so my breath brushes by your cheeks that look so empty. Hold up baby, wait. I only look at you, follow me, 1, 2.
Black out What did we do last night? Black out Honestly, I only remember one thing. I’m thinking about your body I’m thinking about your body I’m thinking about your body All that’s clear is you.
I fell for you like I was in freefall A loveholic never seen before, a fateful biologic (reaction). I can’t explain it in words. Leave it all to me, just follow as I take the lead.
I want to give this candy to your mouth. In the moment we don’t need any sweet words, don’t push me away. Hold up baby, wait. I become one with you, and I fly, 1, 2.
Freak out What are we doing tonight? Freak out I want to see a new side of you different from yesterday. I’m thinking about your body I’m thinking about your body I’m thinking about your body It’s you I want
Umm, last night, umm, that’s right, umm ahh umm Memories where it’s like I’m flying above purple clouds, whoo, seem to be in my head, umm.
You can’t stop what’s already started. Try running away in this dream inside a dream you can’t wake from

Freak out Every night I want to have you. Freak out You already know everything about me. I’m thinking about your body I’m thinking about your body I’m thinking about your body All that’s clear is you.
can you link me some fics where Harry and Draco get together some time throughout their time at Hogwarts but not an 8th year fic
I apparently know a lot of Hogwarts fics that are not during 8th year, oh my word. I knew I had some where they got together before 8th but I didn’t realise this many. You definitely won’t run out of reading material for a long while, that’s for sure.
I was going to do all of them into one giant list, but basically half the fics I read are Hogwarts ones and it’s such a daunting task to do so. Go under my Hogwarts tag and just avoid the ones that are also tagged 8th year, and you should be okay ^^. Sorry if some 8th fics have escaped being tagged as so ^^’.
I have, however, listed the best ones in my personal opinion that are Harry and Draco getting together before 8th year. Happy reading :D

Fan: Match the color to a member. Woozi: Red -> Hoshi Blue -> DK White -> Jeonghan Black -> Woozi
T/N: The question appears to be some kind of a psychological test and each color corresponds to a certain meaning: Red - the person you like/love Blue - the person you cannot forget in your lifetime White - the person who supports your love decisions but actually likes you Black - the hindrance to your love life
