I just wanted you to know that that shirt seems buttoned pretty hastily and in a bit of a shabby way, and that the lady behind you with her “adoring gaze” is hiding pretty badly whatever you’ve just done in there, and since I’m sethkate trash, I’m immensely grateful for all these little details,
P.S. I’d like an invitation to the wedding, if it’s not too much bother.

Becca X MC Part 1 (I just said that out loud didn’t I?)
MC= Jyn. This is set “after” the Sophomore book (Some point after Becca and Madison make up but before the end of the quarter)
Jyn couldn’t help but smile as Becca and Madison chatted away. It had taken almost the entire quarter of Jyn mediating but their friendship was finally on the mend. They were going on about what sort of things they’d been up to since their falling out, though Becca was leaving out anything about their clandestine relationship for obvious reasons.
The coffee shop was otherwise bizarrely quiet. Zig was cleaning something behind the counter, Kaitlyn was sharing a drink with Anissa at the next table. Jyn found it a bit odd that they were drinking coffee through a straw, but that’s just the sort of couple they’d become, sharing everything regardless of how weird it made them look. Tyler and Abbie were pouring over an Uskea catalogue. They had gotten over their rough patch without Jyn’s help, much to her relief. Now they were communicating much better about what each of them wanted and needed. Which included some new décor for their flat apparently. Zack and Chris were quietly discussing student council with Arjun in the corner.
“So, you never did tell me what happened between you two..” Madison said suddenly.
“What do you mean?” Becca asked
“Well you were at each other’s throats all last year and now you and Jyn are practically inseparable.”
The only response Becca managed was “um…”
“Logan had even joked that the only way you two would get along is if you got a room and screwed each other’s brains out” She had done air quotes while talking to demonstrate they were Logan’s words not her own.
Jyn couldn’t help but chuckle while thinking “well that’s pretty much how it happened”
She looked up as a crashing sound came from behind the counter. Zig had dropped a glass. Though she noticed she was the only one looking in that direction. Everyone else in the shop was staring at her with stunned looks on their faces. She turned her head slightly back towards Becca and Madison, Madison sharing the same look as the rest of the room, Becca was wide eyed with a look of sheer terror on her face.
It was Becca’s face that made Jyn realise, her hand moved instinctively to her mouth, “Oh God! I just said that out loud didn’t I????”
excerpt from a zadison “to all the boys i’ve loved before” au i’ve been working on
Dear Madison M.,
Did you know that when you kissed me I would come to love you? Sometimes I think yes. Definitely yes. You know why? Because you think EVERYONE loves you. That’s what I hate about you, Madison. Because everyone does love you. Including me. I did. Not anymore.
Here are all your worst qualities:
You’re really mean to adults. And then they look at me like it’s my fault for not saying anything about it.
You always take the last piece of pizza. You never ask if anyone wants it. That’s rude.
You’re so good at everything. Too good. You could’ve given other girls the chance to be good, but you never did.
You kissed me for no reason. Even though I know you liked Mallory, and Mallory liked you, and Mallory knew you liked Mallory. But you still did it. Just because you could. I really want to know. Why would you do this to me? Thanks to you, it was as unexpected as a kiss could be.
The worst part of it is that stupid nothing kiss made me start liking you. I never did before. I never even thought about you before. Mallory always said you were the best-looking girl in our grade and I agreed, because sure you are. But I still didn’t see the allure of you. Plenty of people are good looking. That doesn’t make them interesting or intruiging or cool.
Maybe that’s why you kissed me. To do mind control on me, to make me see you that way. It worked. Your little trick worked. From then on, I saw you. You have really long lashes. Unfairly long.
After you kissed me, I liked you for the rest of seventh grade and most of eighth. It hasn’t been easy watching you hold hands with Kyle Spencer and making out at the bus loop. You probably make him feel really special. Because that’s your talent, right? Making people feel special.
Do you know what it’s like to like someone so much you can’t stand it and know that they’ll never feel the same way? Probably not. People like you don’t have to suffer through those kinds of things. It was easier when Kyle moved and we stopped being friends. At least then I didn’t have to hear about it.
And now that the year is almost over, I know for sure that I’m almost over you. I’m really proud to say that I’m immunized to the charm of Madison Montgomery. All because I had a really bad dose of you in seventh grade and most of eighth. Now I never have to worry about catching you again. What a relief! I bet if I ever did kiss you again, I would definitely catch something and it wouldn’t be love. It would be an STD!
You know, when I got here earlier today, we were sound checking. I was standing on the stage, looking around at an empty arena, and I could only think of this three word phrase, and after sound check anyone I’d run into backstage, people I know people who work with us, all I had on my lips were those three words. I wanna tell you what those three words were. The first one I would like to define, clarify. The first word is we. And when I say we, I don’t just mean me. I don’t just mean that other guy over there on the drums. I don’t just mean our label, booking agency, publishing, all those people who are here tonight checking us out, watching what it is that you guys created. It’s not just our family, it’s not just our friends, it’s not just the other bands who play with us. It’s not this amazing crew that tours with us. It’s not just… our amazing crew that tours with us, again. And somehow it’s not just you guys in this room, but it’s the thousands of other people who are going to hear about this show, too. It’s all of us combined. Listen. So that was just to define the first word: we. That’s what I mean when I say we. The phrase is this. I couldn’t stop saying it all day. Anyone I saw, they just said ‘what do you think of this, man?’ I just said ‘we did it’. Listen. Every single one of you that listen to me say that right now, you can yell afterwards. This is a celebration. WE DID IT! Would you please give it up for my very good friend, I wouldn’t be up here without him: Josh Dun on the drums!! Well we almost gave you everything we had. I promise you we’re gonna give you everything we have left.

Ok guys, so I have been having major Madison feels lately. I had to rewrite this like twice until I was happy with it (because I am a perfectionist). But anyway, I wrote this because MadBows needs wayyyy more love than he gets. He also needs to get resigned but I digress. I hope you enjoy what my dirty mind came up with.
Six Months Earlier
As John Carlson’s
younger sister, I got to spend a significant amount of time with the Capitals
roster. The only way my parents let me go to college anywhere but somewhere in
the state was if I stayed in the same area as John. I could be considered what
you call an accident child. I was a full 7 years younger than John. With two
older brothers being the only girl was a challenge. Both brothers and my father
are a little what you call over protective.
I was practically born
to do research. So I decided to go to George Washington University and study
linguistics with a minor in international affairs. I had gotten a job with the CIA as an analyst
for when I graduated in May.
