Quite a few people have been waiting for this post so I hope I can do it justice. Here we go…
We’re going to talk about a certain behaviour that you have probably experienced in your life already. It’s peacocking: when a person does outlandish or simply attention-seeking behaviours to appeal to a mate. It gets its name from male peacocks (obvi) because that’s exactly what male peacocks do: they flash their elaborate feathers to attract a mate. Here’s a nice example.
There are different ways for people to peacock, and different reasons why they might do it. Think about it like this: when you go to a job interview, you want to have a bit of pizzazz, right? You want the interview panel to walk away thinking, they’re a perfect fit, and forget about all the other interviewees. Peacocking is what people (and animals) do to show they are a good fit for something, and something is usual mating/partnering. *chokes*
Is it always romance and relationships? No. When we’re trying to make new friends, some level of peacocking can occur, too, depending on personality type. When we make new social connections, invariably people want to demonstrate their value as a connection. To a potential friend, you are saying “I’m fun” or “I’m worth knowing,” and you might do that by showcasing all your dirty Hannibal fanfics or your collection of priceless Fabrege eggs.
If the situation is romantic, you’re trying to demonstrate yourself as an attractive and worthy partner. Some messages you might want to send about yourself involve sexiness, daring, reliability, thoughtfulness, excitement, and so forth. These types of attributes appeal to our base biological instincts: we look for partners who will keep us safe (emotionally and/or physically) and are good matches for the fun stuff™.
What does this have to do with our favourites, KM? Well, I hope I’m not bursting any bubbles here, but JK seems to have gone through a peacocking phase with Jimin lasting from sometime in 2014 and calming by 2018. And, just so we’re clear, I’m not talking about peacocking in the pick-up artist sense, where someone wears something outlandish to attract interest in hopes of a hookup. As I said, I’m specifically talking about the acts some people do to differentiate themselves as worthy mates. And these behaviours tend to have attention-seeking qualities, hence the connection to the word. So, yes–you got me–I am saying that JK has done things to show himself as a good potential mate for JM. As much as I try to rationalize this list of actions, I can’t possibly understand them in any other context. If they just have a bromance, it’s the wildest bromance on record. o.O
sometimes… it is healthier and more fun to enjoy media without immersing yourself in its fandom. like making judgments and analyzing + interpreting things without having your opinions be shaped by the general fandom consensus is so sexy, and being a fan of a character without ever posting about them and just silently enjoying them on your own can be so nice
listen. l i s t e n. listen. kudos does not equal quality. popularity does not equal quality. i have read some “fandom classics” that i could barely fathom how boring or terrible i - personally - found them, and i have stumbled across some absolute gems that didn’t even break 100 kudos.
what is good doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. it’s sad, but true. just because you haven’t - or possibly never take - off in fandom doesn’t mean your work isn’t astounding and beautiful, it doesn’t mean you should stop writing; it just means that a very select corner of the internet missed the diamond in the rough.
fanfiction is flooded with content, there are so many of us out there producing it these days, and having a fic that takes off is almost as much about luck as it is about talent. never let a few artificial numbers on the internet dictate to you what is and isn’t worthy writing.
additionally, you don’t have to read or enjoy fics just bcs they’re big. i cannot count the amount of times i’ve read the first paragraph of something fandom adores and immediatly exited out of it.
just… do what makes you happy. write what you wanna write, read what you wanna read. understand that while we all want recognition - and some deserve it more than others - we did not get into fanfiction for that recognition.
recognition is good, but sometimes we get all tangled up chasing it and stop enjoying writing and reading and fandom as a whole along the way. be careful of that, please, or you’ll burn yourself out.
Twenty-five years in fandom and it doesn’t get truer than this. You absolutely CANNOT predict what will be popular and what won’t. It’s due to coincidence and timing and who happens to hit reblog and yanno…it’s a mystery. Write for yourself, read for yourself, this isn’t a job.
Filter and My Time is just… and jimin’s solo dance on black swan is just……. see y'all in afterlife i guess 🙃
After seeing Filter and My Time performance, i just can’t not think how fitting all of kookmin’s solo to your personas au. Are they perhaps following you here too sajeon? Or perhaps they even create some of the personas au 😳
Lie -> Christian ; Serendipity -> Diminie ; Filter -> Baby g
Begin -> Ian ; Euphoria -> Seagull ; My Time -> mfing Tattoo
Others who has difference opinion is still valid… but wrong. Sksjsjk 😂
Visually speaking, I think we can all agree that Filter was going to be that song. But My Time too?? lmao I’m glad that even soft stans and people who don’t stan JK were wrecked: it’s what you all deserve :)
Also I wasn’t around when people pointed out how KM switched their red/black colors, so I just want to show the utmost appreciation for my color-coordinating duo. Only respect and fear for my OTP.
