visardist asked: the entire text of post/80729329643 pls :)
tbh i never expected that post to blow up but i had a lot of fun writing it so i’ll go graf by graf!! also it got super long so tossing it under a cut
they brought it up in this interview! (((: it’s really cute and there’s a lot of information in there but I WISH THEY’D SPEAK IT CMON
molalucy asked: For the writing meme, please. :) Jin looks up, pops his welding visor up and returns a nod before going back to work. Cheung walks his bike to the loading dock, lashes a box of scrap to the back of it and takes off for the residential sector of the Old Kowloon. He pulls up next to a grocery store, an elderly granny puttering around inside it with a mop, and parks his ride by a stack of winter melons.
thank you for asking!!!! that spec. part was mostly to establish that they’re constantly checking in with each other HAHA. like nonverbally, they’ll let each other know ‘yo i’m taking off’/’ok i know you won’t be here’ and also kind of a way to give each other a chance to uh, make requests or give each other reminders before they split. since their default is ‘together’, when one of them splits off it usually involves some anxiety on the part of the other two ah…
also i headcanon that cheung had to take on the older brother role real seriously for their adolescence and while jin & hu could focus and specialize, he had to take a wider view and do things like take on odd jobs and scrounge and scrimp and probably bargain for every little scrap they can get. like the work that’ll get him looked down on but fuck it, he needs to put food on the table, yknow?
but in doing that, they also establish relationships with people in the neighborhood who see three little boys trying to scrape by, and who’re always willing to jump into a chore or task to make some change so they kinda build a family from the community (hence why they’re so willing to become pilots to protect it). also the bike’s probably a beat-up old thing that he bought secondhand because the farther he can travel the more he can earn in a day, yo! my headcanon is that he upgrades to a motorbike when he’s older and it’s his first Big Purchase HAHAHA /woops derailed but yeah
HAHA yeah it’s about pacrim!! and yeah, the triplets speak canto, their dad’s from HK.
but right?! it’s such bullshit they didn’t get a chance to speak it. also they’re only using mando in china right now ://////// and they’re starting from scratch with mandarin SO THEY SUCK BUT IT’S RLY CUTE…
Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written, and stick that selection in my ask/fan mail. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
ask / fic !

man like you set a movie in kong kong, cast three actors who are native cantonese speakers, call them local boys and then you waste money dubbing them over in mando??
who was behind this decision and are they fired yet
