aaliyah always

Okay, so I didn’t want to post this yet, but I really really REALLY wanna show you guys what I’ve been working on for months. AND since it’s Aaliyah’s birthday… might as well post it lol. So SURPRISE!!! I’ve been working on an animation of Aaliyah! This was supposed to be for the 20th anniversary of her album ‘One In A Million’ in August, but let me tell you something… animating is hard, and it takes a lot of hard work. Even with my hand cramping right now, it’s all worth it. And that’s what Aaliyah taught me. My passion is art, and even though the work is painful, or it makes me bone-tired, it’s all worth it because just seeing something that I created come to life, it’s the best feeling in the world honestly. So, yeah it’s not fully finished yet, but I am planning to finish it by the end of this month or next month. Just wanted to show you guys what I was working on, and that none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for Babygirl and her music. I’ve been listening to her music for over 20 years, since I was little (and her music video, ‘One In A Million’ was the first video I’ve seen of hers on MTV lol), and she was the only artist I really admired, and her music helped me find what I truly love doing, and I thought an animation would be a perfect tribute for me to pay my respects and thank her for inspiring me and millions of other fans out there. 

Happy Birthday, Miss Aaliyah!! Love you and miss you always!!!! 😘💕

Summary: At one of Shawn’s Q&A’s, the fans seem to be more interested in you and Aaliyah than they are Shawn.

A/N: There was a Shawn imagine where it was similar but it didn’t include Aaliyah or the same questions. I asked the writer of that fic ( @1-800-sassy-mendes)  if she was ok with it and she was! Hope you understand! Xx


“y/n? y/n wake up, Shawn’s doing the q&a and you said you were gonna come with me.” Aaliyah said as she shook you awake. 

“I’m up! I’m up. What’s-what’s Shawn doing?” You mumbled as you slowly rose from the couch. 

“The q&a! Come on! It just started!” She whined.

Part 2 / Part 3

Commitment Day. The dream of any princess, except Aaliyah, of course.

Commitment day was a tradition for the children of royalty here in Auradon. To keep the royal legacy alive, the kingdom would have a huge ceremony where each royal would be paired with another. The mirror of Auradon would display the name of each royal’s true pair, and the two would be married off within the year.

And today, on Aaliyah’s 18th birthday, she would be paired with the person she would spend the rest of her life with. How exciting.

Requested - Hi! Could you write something with Aaliyah and Y/N. Like they get along pretty well and like Aaliyah asks Y/N about losing Virginity (Y/N lost it very soon) or something like that. Thanks!

Requested - Heyy, I have an imagine request 💕 so, you’re visiting Shawn in Canada and he’s busy, so you end up spending time with Aaliyah (like take her shopping or out for milkshakes or something) and Shawn finds out and he thinks it’s really sweet and fluff fluff fluff

Your name: submit What is this?


“Baby, I’m so sorry,” Shawn says for what seems like the hundredth time as he glances over at you briefly before refocusing his eyes on the road in front of him.

“Don’t be.” You respond with a cheeky smile. “I get to drive your jeep and hang out with your sister, so it’s a win-win for me.”

“Have I told you lately that you’re the best?” He asks.

“Maybe once or twice,” you tease, a smile on your face as you genuinely appreciate this time you’re getting to spend with your boyfriend, even if it isn’t a lot. You came to Canada to visit him, but he ended up having to rehearse at the last minute, which kind of ruined your original plans for the afternoon.

The drive to his rehearsal space goes by far too quickly, and before you know it you’re driving his jeep out of the parking lot on your way to pick up Aaliyah from school. Since Shawn ended up being busy, you offered to pick up his sister from school and take her to the mall. You’ve grown really close to Aaliyah over the past year that you’ve been dating Shawn, and since you don’t have a younger sister, you take full advantage of getting to spend time with Aaliyah and play an older sister role in her life.

Aaliyah became one of my best friends and we were inseparable. We would dress up to the nines and dance the night away. I introduced her to her great love, Damon Dash. When I’m asked about Aaliyah I always say she was perfect, an angel on earth. For her, it was about the work, not being famous. She chose her friendships wisely, and was discerningly private, surrounding herself with empowering, down to earth people, and always gave so much to her fans. I keep a regular pen-pal friendship going with one of her fans (@aaliyahalways). And that voice – no one compares. I miss her.

Note: don’t like, don’t read - it’s that simple :)


Ever since you began dating Shawn, Aaliyah had automatically taken a liking to you.

She was excited for there to be another girl around, besides her mother or her best friends. Aaliyah looked up to you as a big sister, almost - always asking you for advice.

Whether it be about clothes; school; friends; sports; boys - Aaliyah always wanted to talk to you about something. It actually got to the point where Shawn had accused you of stealing his sister, jokingly, of course.

Lately, though, there was one topic that girl could not stop talking about: boys.

According to her, his name was Ben and he was the most perfect thing to walk the earth. Aaliyah’s words - not yours.

“Baby please wake up, you promised you wouldn’t do this again. Baby, please just open your eyes for me” I begged once again, as if he could actually hear it.

I wanted to scream at him, grab his shoulders and shake some life into him. Hell, if he wasn’t already fighting for his life, I would kill him myself for doing this to me.

Shawn shuts off the engine and looks over to you. He reaches over the center console, intertwining your fingers with his and squeezing your hand lightly with his own, “Don’t be nervous baby.” He tells you. “They’re going to love you, just like I love you.”

He sounds so sure, but insecurity still bubbles within you. “But what if they don’t?” You ask.

Guys, the book is there! See pic number 4! There was some beautiful flowers! I bought her favorite flowers and left a cheque for the Aaliyah Memorial Fund. I also took a picture with a shirt of aaliyahalways design, it looks amazing! And with my new Jacket!
I just broke down in tears because I couldn’t leave her, I don’t know why but I’m like: “I want to stay close to her” I really can feel her presence with me when I’m there! So I stayed there untill almost 4PM, untill Ferncliff close its doors. The taxi man said to me when he saw my shirt: “Aww you’re gonna see Aaliyah. It’s crazy, a lot of people go to visit her, I’ve never seen that!”
To know that she receives all this love warmed my heart at a point you can’t imagine!!!!! Untill next time Lili and Michael.

Shawn Mendes x Reader

Rating: T - moderate swearing

A/N: I got inspired by Shawn saying he just started watching Grey’s Anatomy and I fucking love that show. So I wrote a small little blurb/imagine about it. If you guys want to see more of it, maybe let me know!

Shawn’s POV:

“Dr. Mendes I have your files here for you”

I looked up from my phone as I approached the nurses station. “Thank you Maria” I mumbled softly as I took the yellow file from her hands. “And here is your coffee, one sugar” She laughed as she sat a cup on the desk. “See, this is why my you are my favorite” I smiled as I took the coffee and kissed her cheek as I rounded the corner as I sipped down the cup of joe.

“You do realize sexually harassing the nurses is like totally against the law right?” I rolled my eyes as I tossed the empty cup of coffee into an approaching trashcan. “And you know being a bitch this early in the morning is really obnoxious?”

I laughed as I looked over to my younger sister Aaliyah who was walking towards me with a grin across her lips.  “Ouch Brother, it hurts” She laughs as she wrapped an arm around my waist. “How was the night shift?” I questioned as I wrapped an arm around her as we walked down the hall.

“A shit show as always” She smiled through her exhaustion as she signed her out papers. “We had a 12 car pile up come in around 2:40 am, honestly i’ve never seen so many exposed bones in my entire medical career” She gushed as she grabbed a few files and stuffed them into her bag. “Just wait, soon enough it’ll become the norm” I laughed as I sat down and looked up at her.

“We also got a new trauma nurse, she’s really great. Does her job, doesn’t take all the sexist remarks from the doctors. Real badass” She smiled as she looked over her shoulder. “Look, she’s right there” Aaliyah motioned to the woman walking through the automatic doors. I’ve seen thousands of woman in my life time, and I have never seen someone so beautiful in my entire life. Being at a loss for words has never happened to me, I’m normally a very confident man when it comes to women but my tongue felt numb and dry. “Have a good one Aaliyah, thanks for showing me around” She flashed her perfect smile towards us, well more of Aaliyah but I could always pretend.

“Of course Y/N! It was my pleasure- Hey wait! wanna get some breakfast at ROYS?” She yelled after Y/N as she kissed my head and ran up to her holding her bag. The two were out of ears reach, but they laughed and linked arms like they were high school best friends and left the hospital leaving me confused. “Y/N” I thought to myself as I smiled to myself.

The day seemed to drag on forever, I felt my mind wandering back to Y/N and her smile and laugh. Aaliyah sent me a text about 2 hours ago telling me that Y/N was coming over for dinner to our shared apartment for dinner since she just moved to California and didn’t know anyone except her. To say that I was excited to meet her would be an understatement, I had this stupid grin on my face the entire time and I couldn’t really think about anything else.

“You look like you just took a really great shit” I heard from behind me in the employees lounge. I turned around to see my best friend and co-worker Camila. “Shut up” I laughed as I took off my sneakers and grabbed my boots. “Seriously, you looked like you just took the best shit of your life and you feel 10 pounds lighter” She laughed as she tied her sneakers. “You have the night shift tonight?” I questioned as I noticed her grab her very colorful scrubs from her locker.

Camila was in PEDS and she was honestly perfect for the job. Camila and kids are a match made in heaven. She knew how to calm down the most anxious, upset and violent kid out there. “Yeah I took over Amanda’s shift she was having some family issues so I wanted to help her out” She shrugged still exhausted from her day shift. “Make sure you get some sleep in the on call rooms okay?” I nodded as I grabbed my jacket and slipped it on.

“Yeah I will defiantly be using those rooms later as long as no one is fucking in them” She laughed as she tied her hair up into a pony tail. “Honestly, the amount of sex that happens in this hospital you’d be surprised there aren’t any STD’s or pregnancies” I chuckled as I grabbed my bag and threw it over my shoulder.

“Right! that’s what I’m saying!” she laughed. “I gotta go i’ll see you tomorrow morning?” She questioned as she walked towards the door. “Nope i’m off tomorrow” I smiled at her. “What! Why!” She whined as she crossed her arms across her chest making me chuckle. “Because it’s our dad’s birthday so Aaliyah and I are heading to Malibu for the weekend.” I smiled at her as I squeezed her shoulder in a comforting way.

“It’s MANNY’S BIRTHDAY AND I HAD NO IDEA” She yelled in disbelief hat she had forgotten my dad’s birthday. “-AND  THE ENTIRE WEEKEND? NO MENDES’S? AT ALL?” She gasped as she held her chest being over dramatic as always. I laughed as I shook my head “Yeah Camila, now shut up your scaring the patients”

“THANK GOD!” She threw her hands up in theatrics while laughing. “Have a good one!” I yelled back to her as I spun on my heels and out into the parking lot.

“Hey I’m home!” I yelled as I opened the door to our apartment, to stop dead in my tracks as I looked at the sight in front of me. “Jesus Christ”

“Hey Brother! This is Y/N You guys saw each other briefly go clean up you smell like the hospital and it sucks” Aaliyah laughed as she went back to cooking. There she was, in all her glory. Y/N was wearing dark skinny jeans with a button up blouse and heels. Her hair was pinned back slightly but a few strands got loose and hung next to her face framing it perfectly. She had a glass of wine in her hand and that smile graced her lips.

“Hi.. I’m Y/N I’ve heard a lot about you Dr. Mendes”

Masterlist is here!

A/N: Also if anyone wants to talk or be friends with me, I could use some guy advice!! (haha! is that super pathetic?? i’m so sorry lol)

Jealous Love

Anonymous requested: Hey I was wondering if you could do an imagine where you get jealous of Shawn and Camila and try to make him jealous back with an old friend of yours. You guys go back and forth over it, creating a heated argument but in the end you guys make up and he confesses he loves you? Haha if that makes sense lol

Note: you guys I freaking love to write drama it’s awesome


Everyone knew you liked Shawn, well except for Shawn. It wasn’t something you wanted to tell him in fear that he wouldn’t feel the same way and it would damage your friendship.

Aaliyah had always tried to push you to tell him, but each time you shot her down.

For years, you sat idly by as he expressed his feelings to you about other girls. You would always give him meaningful advice, even though you knew your heart was hurting at the thought of him with another girl.

Including now, this was one of those times.

Camila Cabello, one-fifth of Fifth Harmony had reached out to Shawn, wanting to collaborate. You had no problem with Shawn collaborating with someone, but it made you uneasy when rumors started going around that they were dating.

Shawn had told you how he thought she was amazing and it made you sad, definitely, jealous, definitely.

Shawn and you had set up a day for the two of you to go out to lunch or spend a day in. You both thought food would be nice to catch up over - since you two really hadn’t been able to spend much time together with Shawn about to release his album.

So, there you are, sitting in front of a little cafe that Shawn and you had claimed as your “spot” a long time ago. You sat anxious, wondering where he was as he was about thirty minutes late. If he was going to be late, he should’ve at least texted you.

Almost on cue, your phone rings, a picture of you and Shawn your mother had taken of you showing up.

“Shawn, where are you?” You ask, not in the mood for pleasantries.

“Shit, Y/N, I’m sorry but I got called into the studio - Camila wanted to go over some things for the song and change a thing or two, she also bribed me with burgers, I can’t miss this. I don’t think I’ll be able to make it. I’m really sorry.”

You sigh, angry and most of all extremely jealous that Shawn held her over your friendship with him. This would’ve been the third time that Shawn canceled on you to do something with Camila, if anyone was counting. You were.

“Save it, Shawn. Go be with Camila,” you pause, rubbing a hand over your face. As much as you wanted to be angry at Shawn and tell him to go to hell, you couldn’t. “Do you want to get dinner or something later?”

“Sure, sure, I can do that. I’ll text you, okay?” He sounded rushed.
“Look, sorry, Y/N, but I really have to go.”

“It’s okay, just text me later-” You couldn’t finish your sentence, Shawn hung up on you.

You pull your phone away from your face and slam it on the table in front of you. You headed home shortly after, waiting for a text from Shawn.

One never came and as it came upon eleven o’clock at night, you knew it wasn’t going to happen. So, you went on twitter, going through your timeline - noticing that people had posted pictures of Shawn.

He wasn’t alone and he wasn’t in the studio.

He was leaving a club in Montreal with Camila.

Yeah, that one hurt.

When you had awoken the next morning, you decided that if Shawn didn’t want you, then you had to move on. Or, you could at least see if he could get jealous of you - mission would be accomplished then.

Obviously, if Shawn didn’t get jealous, you would know he didn’t like you the same way you like him and you could move on.

So, you called up an old friend and asked him if he would accompany you to a show that Shawn had tonight in downtown Toronto. He said it would be no problem and said he would pick you up at seven. Perfect.

Your phone vibrated and you glanced at it, reading a message from Shawn.

Shawnie: I’m sorry about last night, I got so caught up in work stuff. Will u be at the show tonite? I want to see u :)

You rolled your eyes at his lie, as if you were stupid, but replied nonetheless.

To Shawnie: I’ll be there, see you at 7:30


As 7 rolled around, your friend David showed up at your house, definitely dressing to impress. You, were dressed not much different.

“Wow, Y/N, you look beautiful.”

You smile, hearing exactly what you wanted, just not from the right person.

“Thank you.” You reply, getting into his car. “We are going to be late.”

“Yeah, of course, let’s get going.” David said, looking at you with his dark green eyes.

David understood that this wasn’t a date, he was purely being used for an experiment. Wait, that came out wrong. He knew you weren’t using using him, he just knew that this wasn’t an actual date.

When you get to the venue, you immediately spot Camila. You didn’t hate Camila, by a long shot, you wished that she was hate-able, so it would be a lot easier on you. The thing was, though, she was sweet and you couldn’t dislike her.

“Y/N!” Camila shouted, waving at you as she got closer to you.

“Hey, Camila.” You smile as she gives you a hug.

David gives you a weird look and you shrug it off, pulling away from the hug.

“Are you excited for Shawn to perform?” She asks you, smiling right beside you.

“Always.” You say, truthfully. No matter how pissed you were at Shawn, you would always be proud of him achieving his dreams and being happy.

David clears his throat and your eyes widen.

“Um, Camila, this is David - my date.” The words came out struggled, your brain and heart knowing that you should be saying Shawn.

Camila looks confused and startled for a second, then a little embarrassed before she reaches out a hand.

“It’s nice to meet you, David.” Is all she she says before she scurries away, telling you a “see you after the show!”

You look at her, extremely confused as to why she just acted so weird, but let it go.

“Do you think this is actually going to work?” David asks you, looking into your eyes.

“One can only hope for so much, David.” You say, quietly, but he heard you.

He gives you a small smile out of sympathy and you know it’s because he’s been in a similar situation. He, actually, used you for the same reason you’re using him right now - a year ago. It didn’t work out.

You lick your lips, looking towards the stage, waiting for Shawn to come out and perform.

As he does, he thanks everyone for coming and starts to play his first song - however, you can totally tell that there is something wrong. He’s not as focused as he usually is in the songs and lyrics, but instead looks really distracted.

Hopefully, you’re the only one that catches on, because that would kill Shawn if it got out all over twitter.

The show practically ended as soon as you thought it began and someone came to find you, telling you that Shawn needed to see you backstage.

You look at David, him wondering if he should come with, but you tell him to stay and made your way backstage.

You see Shawn, obviously distraught as he hands his guitar over to one of the stage managers.

Your eyes meet and he walks towards you.

“Shawn, are you okay?”

At this very moment, you weren’t concerned about him and Camila, you were concerned about how he was feeling mentally and performance wise.

“How could you do that?” He spits, angrily.

 “Excuse me?” Your eyebrows raise in question, slightly taken aback by Shawn’s sudden outburst of frustration.

“You brought a date, to my show?” He asks, almost as if he were confused that you would do such a thing.

“Yes, Shawn, I brought a date. I didn’t think you would get all bent out of shape if I did.” You cross your arms, getting angry at his irrational comments.

“Yeah, well I did, so your mistake.” He says, his brown eyes somehow appearing darker as he got angrier.

“What the hell is your problem, Shawn? You ditch me for your girlfriend for days, Shawn! Days! And suddenly you’re angry because I brought a date to your show? I’m so god damn sorry.” You yell sarcastically.

At this point, members of Shawn’s crew had stopped to watch the fight - signaling they were concerned and John stood by in case the fight got serious and it needed to be broken up.

“I never meant to cancel my plans with you! Work got in the way and unfortunately you suffered the repercussions! And…wait did you say girlfriend? Are you talking about Camila?” Shawn’s voice gets less escalated, and his tone is filled with confusion more than anything else.

“Who else would I be talking about, Shawn?” You said his name with venom. “And don’t give me that bullshit, you didn’t text me when we were supposed to have dinner because you went clubbing with her! I saw the pictures, and don’t try to deny it because I know you two are dating. I mean, who could blame her? Plus, you’ve spent more time with her in the past two weeks than you have with me in the past two months!”

“That doesn’t mean I’m dating her, Y/N!” Shawn tugs on his hair and sucks in a breath, clearly fuming. “This extra time I’ve been spending with her is for us to figure out some way that I can tell you that I fucking love you!”

No one says anything, all that’s heard is Shawn’s angry laboring breathing. You had no idea that Shawn felt this way about you - I mean, how could you?

“That’s why we went to the club, last night.” Shawn says, his voice quiet. “We were trying to get my brain to open up in some way so I could figure out someway that I could tell you that.”

“Well, you just did.” You swallow, shocked.

Shawn steps forward and carefully, as well as slowly, cups your cheek; his hand softly brings your head further to his until you feel him kiss you.

Cheers and claps erupt around you as Shawn’s crew rejoice in happiness.

When you two finally pull away, you see Camila smiling to herself and you look back to Shawn, the both of you smiling at each other.

“I love you, too.” You say and he smiles even wider, going in for another kiss.


The moment that I got to see was so beautiful was the morning we arrived a young Bahamian boy knew she that was coming up to the island. And with her hair in ponytail and saggy pants and sagging eyes and really early o'clock, it was so early it was early o'clock! He had his camera and one of his favorite magazine covers and just like a celebrity unlike any other, she took a picture with him, she signed the magazine cover and he said, “My moms not going to believe this!” And she said, “Well, call her!” And so right there she spoke to his mother while she was at work to verify that he had left school, why he had left school was valid, and that he accomplished his goals. That’s the beautiful person that she is, was, and will always be.


AN: I’ve just been blessed by a reader who let me know the current post for Ambushed is something I already posted! So this is actually ambushed! Wow … thank you! Haha (rushed)

Requested by anonymous!

 Shawn had been talking about going home with him for weeks. It had been a while and you always loved seeing his family, so it was a no brainer. 

 The day had been going wonderfully, Indulging in the beauty that was Toronto. Along with the great boyfriend of yours you were spending it with. 

 "Are we going to your parents for lunch or will we be staying in the city?“ You ask, walking hand in hand with Shawn. 

 "We’ll stay out for lunch and return to my parents house for dinner. Does that sound good?"
