Hi everyone! Anyone coming to Hyper Japan this weekend? I’m there tomorrow. I got a press pass very last minute (like too last minute to use it for its intended purpose, interviewing DLL) but they needed to see a business card so now I have a whole bunch of spare business cards that I don’t know what to do with so if you see me at the show I’ll give you an official Homicidols business card! Yes, seriously.
Kerrie, I say this as your publisher and also your friend: Autograph those things and charge 5 muckles or whatever you call British currency for them
Anyway, let’s have a look at some of the most outrageous yet believable idol misconceptions of this week!
Investing in throat lozenges, as I reckon I'd make a killing selling Strepsils on the alt-idol black market due to en-masse idol guttural screaming.#OTTIdolMisconceptions

"Did you know that when they're not performing, managers make the idols stalk fans on Twitter and give them random likes?" #OTTIdolMisconceptions

This one is actually a backup fun, but with Papermaiden appearing on A-to-J’s podcast today, it only felt appropriate to bring this one out of the archive, as this was all her idea!
Now, where did this all start, perhaps?
Well, if you’re active on K-Pop stan on Twitter at all, you may have seen a couple of self-insert fanfic prompts such as:

Which then brought me to tweet:
God damn, imagine if there were those screwed-up BTS and One Direction self-insert scenarios but with ur oshis, just fuckin imagine. "N*croma react to you dying in childbirth", "Michishige Sayumi cheated on your husband" can u fuckin believe

(I censored Necroma because I know how much Himari stalks this twitter and I didn’t want to creep the poor girl out)
Which then brought people to respond:
Chayu reacts to u falling down the stairs
Dawa reacts to u burning ur face off while trynna fry a chicken
Loverin reacts to you oshihening https://t.co/W9Mcn5LW1R

Maiden is right, I think we could have a lot of fun with this one.
So, this week’s Friday Fun is all about insane idol fanfic prompts! I can’t promise me or Papermaiden will actually write these fics, but at the very least we can have a good chuckle at “How will BiS propose to you?”. Tweet your fic prompts with #HomicidolsFanficDay, make sure to get creative!
