Here’s to Rap Monster, who has dreamed of this moment since his debut. Who used to perform as an underground artist as a student and who led his group so well despite his young age, despite of his uncertainty and fear for the future. Who makes sure to always be there to talk to his members about their feelings and thoughts. Who gave up entering a good university for his passion for music and has spent nearly every night writing lyrics and making songs even till the early morning, even while waiting to go up on stage and even when they are on the plane flying to their next event. Who always writes such thoughtful tangents on loving ourselves, trusting our youth and our passion, forgiving ourselves, and appreciating everything that we have in this world. Who shows us every side to him even though he’s scared of the vulnerability. Who never forgets to thank those around him even if he does not know them personally. Who always thinks of us wherever he goes and who is always rooting for us in whatever we do. Truly without him, BTS would not be the BTS that they are today. And I really hope that he knows that; I hope that receiving this award was able to take all his stresses and heavy thoughts from his shoulders. And even more, I hope that he has learned to love himself- flaws and all- just as we love him. Thank you for always showering us with love and thoughtfulness even if we may not deserve it, thank you for never forgetting about us. I hope that you never doubt yourself and your pure heart. You are more than deserving of this award.
Here’s to Jin. Who has shown us that hardwork and self-confidence is everything. He was accepted into Konkuk university, which is a prestigious Seoul university, before entering Bighit. He got into the film department with absolutely NO special admissions. He studied hard with plans as to become an actor but when Bighit changed his career path, Jin practiced every single day to become the amazing performer that he is today. I think of how he called his vocal trainer at 4am to show her that he has improved and I get so proud. Here’s to the oldest member of the group. Who constantly showers his members and his fans with love. Who was the one that cooked for the members, borrowing food and tools from his own family when BTS could not afford to, who made sure that every member became comfortable in Seoul when they first arrived at BigHit. Who is unbelievably intelligent as well. Who is always there to make us laugh with his silly gags and jokes, who is always there to make us feel loved. You worked hard to improve, you worked hard to be where you are right now. You deserve this.
Here’s to Suga. Who learned what it meant to be an adult at such a young age. Who used to perform for audiences of two and not have enough money to even buy ramen. Who used to listen to people constantly tell him that he would ruin his family. Who came up to Bighit as a trainee to become a hip hop artist and still worked hard and did not falter when that goal changed; learning to dance and what it means to be an idol, studying and working part time, fighting with suicidal thoughts, depression, self-hatred, a broken shoulder, and more. Who spends countless of sleepless nights working on music and lyrics, even on the nights that they are on vacation or when they just come back from a performance. Who truly showed us that though the start may be humble, the end will be prosperous. Thank you for teaching us what it means to live with passion, thank you for always working hard even if you don’t need to. You may not believe it, but this award is real and you deserve it. You’ve achieved all of your goals now! You’ve worked hard to be where you are. Thank you for showing us that hardwork and determination will never, ever betray us.
Here’s to J-Hope. Who was a street dancer and came into Bighit planning to become a vocalist and dancer. Who, when everyone doubted his skills, practiced even harder to become the well-rounded artist that he is now. Who taught himself how to rap and how to write lyrics despite having little experience in that area and is now one of the main creators behind bts’s music. Who practices every night, working on his mixtape and working on his dance skills, because he loves to do so. Who shows us what it means to live with hope and who never fails to show us happiness even in the most difficult of times. I hope you know that we are aware of how thoughtful you are, I hope you know that our love for you is eternal, and I hope you know that you too are more than deserving for this reward. And I just hope that you know that your existence to us gives us strength, that you do not always have to put yourself behind a happy facade and force yourself to hide your true emotions. We know the wide range of thoughts that you have running in your head and we absolutely care for and love all of them.
Here’s to Jimin. Who was a diligent student that studied dance so passionately. Who spends nearly every night in the practice room because he thinks “who am I to be resting right now?” I think of how you cried when people doubted your skills and I hope you know that those people are completely wrong. Your voice is something that touches our hearts and moves us and your skill in dance never fails to amaze us. You belong on stage. Here’s to Jimin. Who also showers his members with such adoration and affection, who is always there to comfort them in the darkest of times. Thank you for showing us what it means to be a good friend and brother. Thank you for showing us what it means to be kind. I hope you know that we love you just the way you are and that it’s okay to rest and to make mistakes. Please don’t ever doubt yourself.
Here’s to Taehyung. Who had to get the help of the Bighit staff to convince his family to let him begin training. Who wanted to be a farmer so that he could help his grandmother in Daegu. Who has been so strong throughout this difficult and painful year. Who still performed passionately for us even when he lost one of the most important woman in his life. Who put up a joyful front for so long even though he was actually in so much pain. Who constantly shows us new sides to his personality. Who constantly works hard in all that he does. Thank you for never failing to put a smile on our faces even when you were going through such a low point and thank you for teaching us what it means to be a filial child. Thank you for loving bangtan just as much as we do and thank you for always being so kind and bright. You share so much with us even when we aren’t deserving of it, Your stage presence and skill never fails to amaze me as well. We will remember your grandmother and we will always thank her for her blessings. You are more than deserving of this award. We know how wide the spectrum of your thoughts are and we know how intelligent you are- no matter what type of expression you might have on your face, your existence is always one that we will love.
Here’s to Jungkook. Who started training at such a young age, who was so shy and insecure about himself. Who left his family in Busan to come up to Seoul when he was just 14 years old. Who sacrificed the chance of making so many important memories for his dream, who sacrificed his youth for us. You gave up so many childhood memories- school romances, field days, school friends- to be on stage. Thank you. I think of how you cry when you think of the hardships that his members are going through and I thank you for trusting your brothers and your future, you deserve all the love in this world but please realize that you, also, have been through so many difficult times and have dealt with hardships. It’s okay to not be strong all the time. Thank you for showing us your growth and your endurance and passion. Thank you for showering us with love in so many ways (whether it be through your detailed song covers or your concert ments), thank you for becoming the person that you are today. Please know that even when your thoughts are cluttered and messy, we are always here to support you and love you. You are more than deserving of this award, thank you for sharing your youth with us.
Lastly, here’s to BTS. This whole entire post of mine is incredibly cheesy but they really do mean a lot to me. Not only do they brighten my every day with their humor and antics but they each have taught me so many things and they constantly inspire me in all that they do. They have taught me to dream, to be diligent, to be loving, to be humble, and to trust my future. More importantly, they have taught me what it means to be young. So here’s to BTS and their first daesang. You deserve it more than anybody in this world and you each are deserving of all the love in this universe. Thank you for showing us that we never are alone and thank you for understanding us and showing us what it means to achieve your dreams and to live with passion. We hear your voice.
Though seeing NU’EST struggle on Produce 101 has been heartbreaking for LOVEs all over the world, there has undoubtedly been a lot of good to come from the decision. From a personal standpoint, my follower count has been climbing, meaning there are more and more people who want to keep updated on NU’EST’s endeavors. If you are a NU’EST blog and your follower count has been rising, that means good for the boys because they are drawing people in. They are people of interest.
Taking a look at their instagram follower counts, they have been climbing by the thousands every day. It’s insane the number of followers they’re generating, at the rate they are generating. Even the number of members in the fancafe has been skyrocketing and has been placing them high in rankings on the chart of fancafe activity.
Going to their official YouTUBE, the boys are nearing 300,000 followers. They’ve been gaining about a thousand new subscribers on YouTUBE a day as well. Last year around Q is, they hadn’t even broken 200,000 yet.
Finally, and most importantly, their albums are selling out fast. The prices on them have skyrocketed on places like ebay and Q is and Canvas are selling out across web-stores everywhere. Q is and Canvas are among the best sellers and several artists from other well-known K-Pop groups are promoting NU’EST on their instagram accounts.
For anyone unsure if this was a good decision on NU’EST’s part to appear on Produce 101, I encourage you to take a look at the evidence. These boys are trending across the board and are a hot topic among Korean youth. Have faith and trust in our boys; when they take their career into their own hands, they always step forward with strategy, wisdom, and a humble attitude.

Loki shifted from foot to foot as he stood next to a farrier’s waiting for Ariella. He was terrified that she would not come, he was unsure why he felt it, but part of him felt there was a chance it would not happen.
It was ten minutes past the time they were supposed to meet and he became worried, telling himself that she had a long route to go, he was adamant to give her a little longer, hoping she would turn up.
When twenty minutes had passed, he felt his stomach sink and his excitement and joy dissipate. She was not coming, was it something he said, was it something he did, he began to feel his breath catch in his chest as he thought of it all. Heartbroken, he turned to walk away. He was a fool to ever leave the palace, to think that anyone would be his friend. Forcing his tears of hurt to remain at bay, he began to half walk, half run to the palace, not paying any heed to anything around him.

The flowers in this room, what do you think they are? I know this is just a drawing, but if Saeran designed this room for MC, each flower here would mean something special.
I have a few guesses based on how they appear. Here’s my thought process as I stare at this screenshot.
The purple flowers stand out here. I could only think of two possible flowers.
Or, maybe lisianthus. Now, violet roses mean admiration, magic, and love at first sight while Lisianthus means, outgoing nature. Out of these two possibles, violet roses make more sense.
There are other flowers are, a dark pinkish or coral color. They don’t stand out as much as the enchanting purple ones and they have a rose appearance too. They could be roses.
The meaning for pink roses are: admiration, confidence, desire, energy, friendship, grace, everlasting joy, happiness, ‘Please believe me’, secret love, thank you, trust, youth, ‘Thank you for being in my life’
Still, that shade of pink seems too light, what about a coral rose? That fits the color nicely… Coral roses mean desire, enthusiasm, fascination, appreciation, congratulations.
But, what if they’re not coral or pink roses. What if they’re camellias instead. They almost look like roses.
Camellias mean, admiration, deep longing, a desire. That still doesn’t seem right. As I look at the petals, they seem to have a more pointed appearance. So then, what if they’re dahlias?
Dahlias mean: ’Warning of Change’, forever yours, anxiety/instability. Though I’m unsure of dahlias as they’re typically larger than roses.
Along with the purple and dark pink flowers, there is a darker color flower underneath them. Based on what they look like, they look like snowdrops, but I’ve only seen snowdrops in purple, blue, and white. Can’t be it, and they’re a bit big to be those, so what about amaryllis?
These flowers mean pride, splendid beauty, beautiful but timid, shyness, innocence, success won after a struggle.
Now, this room was set up before MC arrived. We know Saeran wasn’t told by Rika to specifically get MC. It could’ve been anyone, but Saeran grew attached to MC very quickly, so he probably chose her because he saw her at least once before. This is my feeling. This MC doesn’t download the app, it’s downloaded for her when ‘Ray’ borrows her phone. So the app isn’t even on MC’s device, but she was still contacted by Ray and he knew her name. So I imagine, again, Ray knew who MC was, at least enough to want to invite her into. So the flowers in this room are meant to tell her something:
I’m enchanted by you, this must be love at first sight, but it’s secret as I feel shy.
What do you guys think?
Now the flowers at the back can be one of two flowers, tulips or hyacinth. They’re not well-defined, but I feel it’s one of those two.
Tulips mean an absolute romance, a declaration of love, spring. Pink tulips specifically mean ‘my perfect lover’ and showing feelings of love, well wishes, and feelings of caring.
Hyacinth, specifically pink ones mean: harmless mischief, play, joy
If you have any ideas relating to the meanings of these flowers (I’ve compared them from 3 books I bought about the meaning and language the flowers represent).
I LOVE your blog, I pretty much consider it canon by this point XD Here's a fun question though - how does Lemony know Daniel Handler (the character) and why does he trust him so much...?
You’re very kind, @greatsandwichprince! Be careful, though, this blog is 100% speculative (though some theories are more credible than others).
If you read the un-Authorized Autobiography, search “Handler, Daniel” in the index. The reference points to page 52, a report on a young volunteer who may be invited to join the organization. This child is posing in front of the San Francisco bridge (Daniel Handler was born, raised and currently lives in San Francisco). In the transcript of the V.F.D. reunion committee, there’s also a mention of a young volunteer named D. whose function is to represent another volunteer named. L (page 35).
So Daniel Handler is a member of V.F.D. in the canon of Lemony Snicket’s fictional universe. He’s basically an associate that Lemony met during his youth and that he trusts implicitly. One might even say they’re of one mind.
You’re standing before a great gap. It’s as vast as an ocean. On the far side you see a mass of people. It’s clear they want to be where you are, but have no way of crossing. You possess the power to take them from where they are and deliver them. You are the bridge. You are the inspiration that is needed. You make illusions into clarity. Dreams into reality.
Do not fear vulnerability. Embrace your youthful nature. Trust in your intuition.
Completely Pure. Its character is: innocence, simplicity, na�vety, children’s talk.

Penitential lamentation, intimate conversation with God, the friend and help-meet of life; sighs of disappointed friendship and love lie in its radius.
The key of triumph, of Hallejuahs, of war-cries, of victory-rejoicing. Thus, the inviting symphonies, the marches, holiday songs and heaven-rejoicing choruses are set in this key.
Melancholy womanliness, the spleen and humours brood.
The key of love, of devotion, of intimate conversation with God.
Feelings of the anxiety of the soul’s deepest distress, of brooding despair, of blackest depresssion, of the most gloomy condition of the soul. Every fear, every hesitation of the shuddering heart, breathes out of horrible D# minor. If ghosts could speak, their speech would approximate this key.
Noisy shouts of joy, laughing pleasure and not yet complete, full delight lies in E Major.
Na�ve, womanly innocent declaration of love, lament without grumbling; sighs accompanied by few tears; this key speaks of the imminent hope of resolving in the pure happiness of C major.
