Something I noticed is that the comic frames I provided was actually smaller than I intended. If I do this again in the future I’ll buff out all the rough spots like that and probably provide you guys with a little more time. Like I said I’ll be back to making my comics next week when things are less hectic. Thanks again to all the comic artists that helped me out by making these :) you rock! See you next week.
Today is your boyfriend, Tristan’s runway modeling gig. It is held by the infamous Will Drake at the Hotel Cortez in downtown Los Angeles. You didn’t go with Tristan to most of his gigs, but you had the day off of work and not to mention, an overnight stay here is free thanks to Will Drake.
Another reason was because you didn’t trust Tristan. He gained a terrible habit of doing drugs at his gigs and you wanted to be there to make sure he doesn’t. But who knows, Tristan always finds a way. You even tried to convince him to go to rehab in the past but every time you brought it up, he would get defensive.
You know you deserve better and your friends are always telling you to leave him, but you just can’t let go. The both of you have gone through so much together. Good and bad.
There was even a dark time when Tristan has hit you when the both of you got in a heated argument while being heavily intoxicated. He was too drunk to fully realize it, so you just cried yourself to sleep. Being sober the following morning, Tristan apologized and promised it wouldn’t happen again.
“Tristan, you’re on in 10!” The backstage crew member shouted to Tristan as he was walking past him. He was all over the place trying to stay organized, telling models when they were up next. The plan is for Tristan to make an appearance 4 times throughout the show in 4 different outfits.
“Yup!” Tristan replied while sitting in front of the vanity mirror. There was a hairstylist doing last minute touches on his hair. You were standing next to Tristan, putting your hand on his shoulder. “Babe, can you not? I don’t want you in my personal space right now.” Tristan says, moving his shoulder away from you. He’s been such a diva all day and you just went along with it.
“Okay. Whatever.” You let out a sigh, then went to sit on a chair about 5 feet away from him, pulling out your smartphone to keep yourself occupied.
6 minutes later you go to use the bathroom.
Once you come back, you see Tristan quickly snort a line of white powder on his vanity. Your eyes raging with anger, you push Tristan on the back. “What the hell, Tristan?!”
Tristan rolls his eyes.
“Tristan Duffy, let’s go! You’re up after Lawrence and Stacy.” The backstage crew member grabs him by the arm to his place. Tristan doesn’t even say a word to you.
“What the fuck?!” Being so angry and disappointed with your boyfriend, you chose not to rush to sit front row to watch him do his thing on the catwalk. Instead, you go to the bar upstairs.
Because of the fashion event going on in the lobby, the bar is pretty much empty. You see the bartender who’s tall and slim with a bald head, wearing green eye shadow and thick eye liner. Sitting at the bar, you see a pale man with dark brown hair and a modern day Gomez Addams mustache. He is also dressed to the nines in a dark blue suit.
You sit one chair away from him. The bartender walks over to you and asks, “I’m Liz. What’ll you be having, hun?”
“Just make me the strongest drink you can make.” You respond.
“You got it.” Liz starts on making your drink.
“This one’s on me, dear.” The man tells Liz and then looks at you. He moves to sit on the stool next you and puts his hand out for you to shake. “I’m James. James Patrick March.”
“Y/N.” You put your hand to shake his back, but instead, he grabs your hand to kiss your knuckles. Wow. You can’t remember the last time Tristan ever did that to you. “The way you’re dressed, you look like you should be joining the fashion show downstairs.”
James looks up, opening his mouth, letting teeth show. His eyes wide as he responds with, “Ah, yes.” He pauses, then looks back at you. “That sort of festivity is not to my liking. May I ask why are you not attending such occasion?” He had a really strong tone of voice and sounds straight out of an old movie, similar to Clark Gable. Whereas your boyfriend talks more like Rob Kardashian. This man is definitely classy.
“Well, my boyfriend is in the show. But, he really pissed me off beforehand and I can’t even look at him in the face right now. So. Here I am.” You let out a fake laugh. Liz hands you your drink and you take a sip. “The next one’s on me, James.”
“Oh no. Have anything you like, dear. This is my hotel.” With drink in one hand, he puts both of his arms out, being proud to show off his hotel.
“Wow this is your hotel? Tell me all about it.” You are very opened to hearing anything this nice man has to say about his hotel. For once, a man (especially a good looking man) cares to have a decent conversation with you while being very passionate about it. You didn’t want to compare a stranger to your boyfriend, but whenever you sit down with Tristan at the dinner table, he’s always on his damn phone looking through social media instead of talking to you. You really hated how technology has so much control over people nowadays.
“Splendid!” James says in excitement. “Come. Let’s sit.” James nods his head, then puts the hand that’s holding his drink to point at the table nearby.
The table you chose to sit at has a perfect view of the fashion show. Coincidentally, you see Tristan walk on the white runway. A part of you wishes you could be there to support him, but you’re just so pissed about him resorting to drugs. You thought he wouldn’t do it when you’re around, but Tristan’s a hard person to control.
Two hours pass and during that time, you listened to James fascinate about his hotel and he listened to you rant about your boyfriend. The conversation you were having with him made you forget all about the fashion show. James was being a great listener. He didn’t have much to say about Tristan. Most of the time, he nodded his head and listened while smoking a cigarette. You were so caught up in the conversation that you even told James about the violent drunken fight you had with Tristan before. “A man must never lay a hand on his beloved. Especially if she is beautiful like you, dear.” James looks you directly in the eye, then takes a sip of his drink.
You looked down and smiled. James is such a charming man.
You chugged whatever’s left in your glass and check the time on your phone. “Oh shit. I didn’t even realize we’ve been talking this long.” You look over the lobby, seeing everything getting cleaned up. Rushingly, you put your phone in your bag and stand up. “I should really get going, Tristan’s probably wondering where I’m at.”
“As they say, time flies when one is having fun.” James grins.
As he’s still sitting down, you quickly give him a hug. He can smell the aroma of your perfume. “It was nice meeting you, James. Thanks again for the drinks. I had a great time.” You start heading downstairs to the elevator.
James puts out his cigarette and starts slowly walking towards the bar. with his hands behind his back. He’s eyeing you while you’re still in sight.
Liz notices him right away. “James. She has a boyfriend, remember?”
“Ah yes. From what I have learned, this significant other of hers does not have good intentions. I just know.”
Finally, you reached the floor your suite is in. You unlock the door with your room key and rush in, setting your purse on the floor being worried that Tristan’s been concerned where you’ve been.
You start looking for Tristan. The first thing you see is half of an empty bottle of vodka on the table. Then, you walk in the bedroom and find him snorting another line of whatever drug that is on the nightstand.
“Are you serious right now?!” You push Tristan and quickly wipe off whatever’s left on the nightstand with your hand.
Tristan stands up. “What the hell, babe?!” Instead of being embarrassed about you finding out, he’s pissed that you wasted it.
You stand on your tip toes and push Tristan again. “What the hell is wrong with you?! God dammit, you weren’t even worried about where I’ve been for the past couple of hours?!”
“Stop fucking pushing me, dude!” Tristan yells, putting his face closer to yours as hes grabbing both of your arms.
“Look at you. You’re pathetic. You should’ve gone to rehab like I said. But no, you’re such a fucking loser!” You let go of his grip and push him again, which fills him with even more anger. You can see his face turn red and his jaw clench. He picks you up and throws on the nearest desk, causing the mirror to break. “Tristan!” You screamed. There’s no way that the people in the halls wouldn’t hear that. While he’s staring at you, he’s huffing and puffing from the strength he used to throw you. Mixing drugs, alcohol and anger is never the best idea.
Your mind is filled with confusion. The man you thought that loves you has really outdone himself this time. He made a promise that he wouldn’t lay a hand on you again. You’re so frightened now and just wished you left him the first time it happened.
You thought to yourself, who knows what else he’s capable of doing? Not thinking thoroughly in the heat of the moment, you grab one of the broken mirror pieces, run up to Tristan and cut his face with it. “I hate you!”
“Oh, you do huh?!” Tristan grabs you by the wrist, but right before he has the chance to abuse you again, James appears to stop him, making Tristan let go of your wrist. You ran to the nearest wall and cried. You could’ve sworn that the door was locked behind you. But you didn’t care to question it at this point. You’re just thankful that James is here to save you.
“Who are you?” Tristan still breathing heavily asks.
“It does not matter, dear boy. This is my hotel. And I will not allow you to harm, Miss Y/N.” James does not break eye contact.
You look up to see what’s going on as you’re wiping away your tears with the back of your hand.
An older woman with red hair, wearing a maid uniform bends down to you, handing you a tissue. As you’re sniffling, you say, “Thank you, uhhhhh.”
“Hazel Evers. But you can call me Miss Evers.” The woman smiles at you as she is getting your hair out of your face.
“Fuck off, man!” Tristan attempts to attack James. James being much stronger than him, pushes Tristan on the bed. You can see the veins popping out of James’ neck from using his strength.
James grabs a gun out of his pocket and shoots Tristan in the head.
Your eyes widen in shock and you get up to rush to Tristan’s body but James stops to hold you. “Oh my god, what did you do?!” You didn’t think a man like James was capable of killing someone.
“I saved you, dear. I saved you before it was too late.” Something about James’ voice is very calming to you. Still holding you, he grabs a handkerchief from his jacket and wipes away your tears.
Taking you with him, he goes to sit on the couch and lays your head to rest on his lap as you cry. Your head was filling with mixed emotions. Of course, you’re sad that the man you thought you loved is laying there dead. But what if James didn’t show up to save you? Who knows what else Tristan is capable of doing to you. He could’ve easily killed you as well. So much just happened in a short amount of time that all you want to do is lay down and cry.
“Miss Evers!” James turns his head to Miss Evers.
“Yes, Mr. March?!” She answers. Miss Evers seems very loyal to James.
“Would you get Sally to help you rid of this body?”
“Right away, sir! What a glorious stain!” She leaves the room excitedly.
James looks back down on you and caresses your head. “There there, dearest. Never will I hurt you like he did.”
This hiatus is killing me so I thought I’d post about what I think might happen in s4 based off stuff the cast and crew have said and also some speculation.
• This season will apparently be a lot happier and lighter than last season and I think it will focus a lot on recovery and relationships
• Two big storylines will probably be Maya and Tristan’s recoveries. Tristan’s storyline will probably be about his disability and rehab and I’m guessing Miles and Zoe will play supporting roles in this plot. I think Maya’s storyline will focus on her rebuilding her old relationships with people like Grace and Zig (Also it seems like Zaya is going to be endgame and I’m not sure how I feel about that.)
• Obviously the seniors will be graduation :( so there will definitely be episodes about prom and graduation and all that.
• From some of Chelsea’s tweets, it seems like we will find out more about Esme and her backstory. I feel like this might play into Zig’s involvement in Maya’s plot and that Zig and Esme will probably break up.
• Grace will probably have to deal with her CF and her plans for how she wants to spend the rest of her life, she’ll probably get a lung transplant and maybe deal with the side effects of that (also the writers and definitely going to have Grace and Jonah get together).
• There has been some stuff floating around about them doing a transgender storyline (I think Spencer told a fan or something? I could be wrong). Anyway, I feel like they will address this because in an interview, Stefan mentioned they would touch on the LGBT community this season. I think this plot would involve the Gamer Club because in an interview Amir said Baaz would be in a supporting role in an arc that will spark conversation and interest (something along those lines anyway)
• Apparently, we will find out why Yael wears a wig (maybe this will tie into the transgender plot?)
• I think we will find out more about Saad because he didn’t have that big of a role last season and descriptions of him seem to include more information on him than we’ve had on the show! Hopefully they’ll maybe explore some of the difficulties refugees have in assimilating in a new society.
• And this is pure wishful thinking and not based on any evidence but I hope they do an asexuality storyline with Shay! That would be a really cool and interesting storyline and I’ve never seen a character actually say they were asexual on tv before
So yeah, those are some of the things I think (or hope) will happen next season! Obviously there will be more storyline and plots than I’ve mentioned but hopefully they will all be great! What do you guys think will happen? I’d love to have a discussion about it with someone!
@homonormality OKAY BEFORE ANYONE SEES THIS AND BELIEVES THIS ASSHOLE. THE TRUTH: I WAS A DEDICATED FAN FOR 10 YEARS BUT I HAVE QUIT HER I ONLY BROKE 4 TIMES IN THE PAST YEAR AND ONE OF THEM WAS AGAINST MY WILL
current fate round table crew rated by how much of a slut they are
1. Dick magic tier: Merlin
>>>> 2. Lancelot [circumstantially a slut, repeatedly, notable in that he Gets Off to shame so it’s difficult to tell how much he honestly regrets his actions.] >> 3. Gawain [thinks he’s number one on this list but keeps getting cockblocked, we let him believe he’s a slut because it helps his self esteem, but to be fair he probably has gotten around a fair amount, just not enough to ruin anyone’s reputation] >> 4. Tristan [circumstantially not a slut but would probably sleep with you anyway]
>>>>>>5. Arturia/Arthur [circumstantially not slutty but keep in mind they have a lot of pent up frustration from being King thus would likely settle for the first person to compliment them on their Sword. Confirmed don’t like tentacles but may be into vore, approach cautiously]
> 6. Agravain [nobody approaches him, probably sleeps with arturia alter body pillow, avoid sleeping with at all costs bc the pillow Will cuck you] >> 7. Bedivere [circumstantially a slut but too good for anyone around him, nobody wants to corrupt his pure ass, would probably sleep with you and be Good in bed and treat u with love and respect which is probably too vanilla for the rest of them]
8. Mordred [mordred doesn’t know what the word Slut means. Mordred would go “I’m the biggest slut here” but only bc they know there’s some kind of negative connotation attached to that word.]
9/10 Galahad tier:
>>Mash [can do whatever she wants but nobody has the heart to call it slutty. Mash could show up in full bondage gear and everyone would tell her it’s a nice look for her]
>>Galahad [not because he wouldn’t have sex but because the universe would literally bend itself to prevent galahad from having sex. he knows better at this point]
Though I’ve only been apart of half, I wish to see & be apart of the many more years to come! So proud of all they’ve achieved 😊
Thanks to these four guys for bringing so much happiness, positivity, love & support in my life! As well as amazing memories and wonderful friendships, being able to be myself and express myself creatively 😊 AND being apart of a lovely, unforgettable experience!
The Vamps, THANK YOU ❤ Hope to see you soon! (and to actually be apart of your tour when you come back to Canada & to be in my city when you return, or even my country for that matter 😂) I don’t want to miss out on meeting you guys again!
AKA What plots we needed but got upended by the Bus Crash
Sidebar: NOT SORRY FOR THAT JOKE!
So the bus crash was a perfectly played out sucker punch to the kidney that left you breathless and crying on the floor after you realized what it was. However it did derail two running plots that in the long term would have been valuable for a short term gain of the fantastic Eric and Olivia show stealing scenes in NC3.
Let’s talk about those for a moment.
Okay, I might be overstating with the whole ‘two plots’ thing because only one of them was a running plot, and the other was an Lovecraftian abyss where good plots die known as the writing around Tristan. Let’s start with Maya as everyone is probably tired of my angry rants about Tristan’s mismanaged plot lines.
So before the crash Maya was boyless and heading into the world of ‘turning into an adult’ a lot more than almost any other Degrassi senior in the past. Clare and Alli got close but Clare’s plot derailed with her sexual harassment plot and Alli’s plot never left the school. Which hindered it being a ‘becoming an adult’ plot. Drew also got close but his plot quickly turned into ‘babysit Miles’ and ‘don’t sleep with Grade Tens who are trying too hard.’
So with Maya, who actually had a lot of space to explore ‘running headlong into her career,’ they derailed it for her suicide plot. Which was great, Olivia killed that plot dead. Poor choice of words, point is I’m not complaining about the plot. But we lost a lot of room to explore another useful teenage issue. However, Maya Matlin, was the character to do it with.
See, since Cam, this darkness has been trailing Maya. Getting a bit of plot space here or there, but not the space it needed. It showed up two or three times each season before now. So it was the right plot for the right character, and Olivia hit all the marks for the plot… which is why this isn’t so much critical as ‘petty complaining.’
Troubles with Tristan
So while Maya was complaining, this is an actual criticism. And I KNOW without this I’d lose all the Lola plot from NC3. But there was a lot to do with Tristan that probably won’t find space if they do his TBI plot correctly. See, I still feel Tristan isn’t ‘done’ until they have him face his insecurity head on. And his biphobic slutshamy things, but mostly the Insecurity.
I mean face it. Not… casually get confirmed ‘being gay is hard’ from a random one shot love interest, followed by Tristan being a bad friend to everyone. Having Tris own up to his issues and decide to change, even casually (like Zig ‘not cheating on Esme’ is him moving past his ‘cheating on everyone else’ characterization).
See, Zoe and Miles have had chance after chance to reverse their terrible horrible life choices from early on. They’re the same characters, but also clearly not the awful people they were. Maya will be spending S4 facing her own demons. I hope Zig and or Winston get to face their issues (Zig’s past/family drama, Winston…. getting a plot).
Sidebar: Not all characters are on the same level of use, Esme, Jonah, Tiny, and Grace were never going to be given the same level of focus as Maya, Zoe, Tris, and Miles. And that’s fine. It isn’t fine there’s a clear racial divide, and that shit needs to stop. But you can’t be surprised some character’s are leads, and some are seconds.
We’re not going back to giving Snake plotlines.
Now, now we have Tris recovering from a huge injury, there should be a lot of time spent on his injury. For Tristan, someone who is all about being self-realized (and then insecurely undermining himself) that’s a huge shift to adjust to. Which means all of that? Should take priority over him overcoming his past issues. But if we turn our back and just let a biphobic jerk tell his best friend her orientation and erase his boyfriend’s identity it won’t be a compelling resolution.
If you want to understand what I mean, Goes Hollywood had issues, but the plots for Paige, Ellie, and Marco were on theme to show how they grew. …or ungrew for Paige then regrew because… okay I said issues were had.
I’m concerned that Tris’s recovery and his relationship with Miles will be rolled up into one plot, and put most of the weight on Miles again. And really Tris needs his season to learn and grow, way more than Miles who has killed it lately. And by lately I mean the whole time.
Hopefully I’m wrong and Tris will get his growth, but… they don’t have a great track record on this.
