“uh, babe?” scotty called out as he stared at the basket that was on their doorstep. all his intentions were was to go and grab their newspaper, but to his surprise there was a basket with a small sleeping baby instead. his heart began to race as he looked down at the child with a note attached saying that they would do a good job taking care of them. his eyes just went wide as he tried his best not to wake them up. “you might want to come look at this.”
hey, could you possibly write me a blurb on y/n being a radio presenter at radio one and meeting niall through her job, your writing's amazing x
of course, dearie! what a cute idea :) a little longer than a blurb though sorry x
“God, no,” you groan, looking at the plan for your station for the week. “Why do I have to talk to Niall Horan?”
“Tsk tsk,” your boss clicks, sighing. “You know who your target audience is.” She pulls out her handy binder of charts, her long, perfectly manicured fingers skimming over your ratings. They are, of course, all almost exclusively within the under 18 and 18-30 age range.
“I know,” you whine, fully aware of why he was on your show. That didn’t mean you had to be happy about it though.
“Besides, I thought you liked that Direction band or whatever.” Casting off all of your concerns with a flick of her wrist, she adds, “I worked hard for you to get this. I thought you’d be praising me at my feet. Every other girl would be dying for seven minutes with Niall Horan, if you catch my drift.” Grinning at you, you roll your eyes at her lack of subtlety.
“Oh, stop!” You cry, feeling your face grow hot. You continue on, more seriously this time, “That’s the problem, though. I’ve met way too many rude celebrities to be excited to shatter whatever naive good feelings I have about him.”
Opening the door, she calls back to you, one eyebrow raised, “”Who knows? Maybe you’ll get lucky this time.”
“Shit,” you mutter once she’s out of view, your pulse involuntary starting to race.
Your head pounding, you rearrange the papers on your desk again, making sure that Niall’s papers across from you are also perfectly set up. You don’t need another bitchy comment from a celebrity about that this time. Sighing, you quickly leave the room to go find a cold bottled water for Niall. Rushing back, your feel you heart sink into your stomach when you see through the window that Niall is already sitting in his chair. “I’m so sorry I wasn’t here,” you apologize, talking a thousand miles per hour. Still holding the water bottle, you wave it around for a moment as you try to figure out where to put it–on his desk, in his hand? After a moment of pondering, you finally set it on his desk, right next to his open hand. Clearing your throat, you add, “I got you a bottled water. Do you want anything else, Mr. Horan? I mean, we have coffee, tea, soda, flavored wa—”
He chuckles under his breath. “This is fine, thank ya.” Finally looking up from his notes, he smiles slowly at you. “And, please, call me Niall.”
Fiddling with your hands by your side, you simply nod at him, unsure of what to make of this strangely polite behavior. Walking over to the chair opposite him, you start to lead him through the plan. “First, I’ll introduce you, of course, and then—”
He clears his throat, and you stop, looking up from your notes with what you’re sure look like wild eyes. “And what do I call ya?”
“Oh,” you blush, your thoughts slowing to a crawl. “Y/N,” you shakily respond, attempting to keep an even tone. Goddammit, you’d never had so much trouble talking to anyone before in your life.
“And don’t worry,” he reassures. “I read through the notes already, so I know what ta do.”
“Wow, you’re ready then,” you say, sounding more surprised than you mean to. “I’m impressed,” you finish, trying to lighten up your tone.
“I do me best, love,” he answers, effortlessly taking a swig of his water. “Let’s do this, Y/N,” he smirks, giving you a wink.
Feeling his eyes on you, you attempt to introduce him as you would for anyone else. Meaning without sounding nervous or–God forbid–lovestruck.
“First up, I have ten questions for Niall that were submitted by listeners here at Radio One.”
At first, the questions that you ask him start out fairly simple–coffee or tea (tea), “Stay With Me” or “Thinking Out Loud” (“Thinking Out Loud”), and Twilight or Fifty Shades of Gray (having to choose, he ends up with Fifty Shades of Gray). But then the pauses between Niall’s answers lengthen as he scrunches up his face, lost in thought.
“L.A. or London?” Interested in how he’s going to answer this question, you finally glance up from your lap, immediately (accidentally) making eye contact with him.
“I know that I’m here in America, so it’s probably not gonna be the popular answer, but…” He dramatically pauses for a moment before he finishes. “London.”
“Why is that?” You ask, cocking your head slightly, feeling your heart pound from his eyes that are still unflinchingly locked on yours.
“When I was in LA recently, I didn’t, well, I didn’t… have my ID and I had ta Google meself to get into a club!”
You laugh abruptly, surprised at his answer. “Sorry about that,” you start, your voice coming out a little breathy. “America is just, well, just like that.” Shrugging, you continue, “Also, the questions are just gonna get harder now, so good luck.” You give him a look of pity, truly feeling guilty for putting him on the spot like this. Maybe you should have chosen different questions.
“Taylor Swift or Meghan Trainor?” He breathes in through his teeth, and there’s an audible pause as he thinks it over, drumming his fingers on the desk.
“Harry’s gonna hate me fa this… but Taylor Swift.”
Breaking his eye contact–because you know the next question coming up–you hold back the urge to sigh loudly. “Pajamas, boxers, or, uhh, commando?” Suddenly very interested in your paper, you don’t look at him, even when you see him chuckling out of the corner of your eye.
When he doesn’t respond for a couple of seconds, your curiosity gets the best of you and you finally look up, just enough for his gaze to meet yours. “I know the answer everyone wants me ta say, but I’m gonna go with boxers,” he replies, a little smile on his face.
By everyone did he mean you? Oh God, what the fuck is going on?
Feeling the heat from your face travel to your chest, you laugh unconvincingly as you shift around in your seat. But when you realize there’s only one question left, a wave of relief washes over you. “Okay, one more,” you say, forcing a smile so that you sound better over the radio.
Knowing this is arguably the weirdest question for him to answer, you pause halfway through, losing courage. “Date a fan or date a,” you gulp, the sound bouncing around the room. “Band member?”
This one shocks Niall the most. He laughs forcefully, directly into the microphone. So far, he hasn’t looked surprised by any of the questions, but this one finally cracks his calm exterior.
Thinking for a moment, he answers smoothly, “Neither.”
“Neither?” You clarify, confused. That was definitely not the answer you expected. “I thought you said you’d be open to dating a fan?”
“Ah, so you do know about me, after all,” he teases, wriggling his eyebrows at you. When you don’t respond he explains himself, “I’d date an interviewer, though.”
His flirting catches you so off guard you whip your head up to stare at him. Not sure what to answer–and you get paid to never have that happen–you simply force yourself to laugh as you reply, “Okay.” You can’t have dead air. “Moving on,” you blurt, your voice louder than you mean it. Jesus, you sound as flustered as you feel.
“Now, can I ask ya those ten questions?” He flashes you a smile.
“No” is all you’re able to respond in a deadpan tone. Before he can derail you any further, you delve right into the new album, the upcoming tour, everything that you were supposed to be talking about. He contains himself this time, allowing you to lead the discussion as you had been hoping to.
The second the microphones are off, though, you start in on Niall, eyes blazing. “What the hell was that?” You bark, feeling a strange sense of anger and confusion, and you can’t tell if anything that’s happening is real or just your imagination. “Were you trying to embarrass me? Yourself?”
His face goes blank for a moment, unreadable. Finally, he gives you an apologetic smile and his voice is quiet but serious. “I’m sorry, love. I wasn’t tryna embarrass ya. Your smile rendered me dazed, and, well, a little not like myself.”
He really does sound sorry. You don’t mean to give in so easily, but you feel the tension wrapped tight around your body begin to loosen. “Like a lost puppy?” Jokingly, you give him the puppy eyes.
“Exactly,” he nods, and you can tell he’s immensely enjoying your expression. “Now, how about we discuss the answer to the same ten questions ya gave me over a—” He interrupts himself to glance at his Rolex. “I was gonna say drink, but it’s only ten in the mornin here.”
You laugh, knowing the jet lag must be affecting him more than he lets on. “A cup of coffee?” You finish for him.
He hums, agreeing. “That’s what I meant.”
You look him over, never really having had the chance or the desire to do so earlier. When you look too closely at him–his brilliant eyes, his freckles, his honest smile–you feel your knees begin to buckle. “Why me?” You ask, your voice softer now. “I mean, literally every girl in the world would kill to have even seven minutes with you.”
“What? Seven minutes?” Shit, that came out wrong. Damn it. Eyebrows raised and with an amused expression on his face, you can tell he’s pieced together your thought process.
“Never mind,” you sigh, frustrated that, for once, you can’t seem to get the right words out of your mouth.
“Well, fa starters, you’re beautiful,” he says factually, not a trace of doubt in his voice. “But more than that you’re a mystery ta me. I want ta know who ya really are off of these airwaves.” As he gestures to the equipment around you, you can tell the words coming out of his mouth aren’t part of any show, any ploy.
You pause, actually considering his proposition. If you’re being honest with yourself, his answer is much better than you expected.
“Well, I suppose one cup of coffee couldn’t hurt,” you speculate. “Or tea in your case.”
“Perfect,” he murmurs and grabs his sunglasses off the table, placing them on the top of his head. Holding the door open for you, you slide through the doorway, your eyes glancing up to see your manager. Her head poking out from her office, her face lights up as she sees Niall exit right behind you, too close to simply just be leaving at the same time.
“I see you!” She calls out gleefully as you two walk out of the building, shoulders touching from your proximity. Waving your hand behind you, you brush her away as Niall’s booming voice and your content laugh echo throughout the hall and out into the open air.
One thing that attracted me to your fantastic, awesome, art was the wrinkles. It makes your work look more realistic...? How do you do it? How do you know if you put too many wrinkles? Where should you draw them? How do you shade them? Sorry for asking too many question! ☺️
Ok, I’ve been trying to think of a good way to answer this, so bare with me XD
I have always been interested in fashion (when I was younger, I actually wanted to pursue the fashion industry) so I really, really like drawing clothes. My mom also makes clothes in her spare time. She still makes me dresses and stuff.
I found out some… *aham* things, about the fashion industry so I gave up on that idea (lol) but I still very much like clothes, so I spend more time developing my OC’s closet than the OC itself, ya feel? And I think because of this, I got used to how different materials behave on the human body.
Like, seriously, most of what I’ve learned is from pure observation. The wrinkles… it’s a bit hard to explain how to know when there’s enough of them… After a while, you just know. It’s easy to learn by looking at pants, I think. Because the lines are very much clear on pants. And you just kind of get a feel for it?
I’m sorry, I hope I’m not confusing you more
Veil is so soft that it drops beautifully on any surface, so it always has a LOT of wrinkles when you draw it.
denim is a harder material, but it can still fall into a shape. But it has less wrinkles.
cotton is somewhere between veil and denim, so it still has a pretty good amount of wrinkles.
leather is hard af, so in most occasions, no wrinkles. Unless it’s a very thin layer, then it can get some, but that’s because the material itself is quite heavy.
As a tip, I say, take pictures that you like, and draw the clothes. Well, you can draw anything, but concentrate on the clothes and the way the material falls around the body. Sooner or later it’ll become second nature :)
The shading takes a while to master, tbh. but again, as long as you practice, you’ll get there no problem. Don’t let it scare you :D
Seventeen: My muse slips their hand into your muse’s pants
((CHRM. *cracks knuckles*))
He approached the girl from behind as she was getting ready, no doubt wanting to leave to somewhere. His demeanor relatively calm as he was able to smell the slight scent of perfume and mixture of chemicals in the air… He took a deep breath, yet as silently as possible… even though he despised the smell of the mixture that was her own and the chemicals, mixed together… it was certainly welcome to the other option.
“Going out?” His voice sounded up behind her as he stared at her still, sight and mirror providing for him the whole view on her… he wanted to see her face. “What a rare sight.” He approached her slowly, every step calculated as his hands slipped behind his back slowly, a smirk settling in place on his face… which was… not the trademark smirk… but a smirk nonetheless.
Do you wanna know me more? send me questions in my ask.
