adam is finally using his instagram

-Blue wears a strange combination of floral dresses and combat boots everywhere. it drives gansey insane but in the best way ever.

-ronan is dreaming thousands of fireflies up and adam fills mason jars with them. they never die, but make the most amazing night lights. the pathway from the house to the barns in lined by these jars.

-blue steals 4 jars and goes to noah’s grave and leaves them there.

-henry ends up convincing the gangsey to finally join social media. somehow they’re all some connected by snapchat and instagram and Facebook messenger. it’s great.

-blue’s instagram contains pictures of dead flowers, blueberry yogurt, feminist novels and many pictures of trees (as well as sneaky shots of gansey labeled ‘dick’)

-ronan uses messenger to send obnoxious pictures to gansey of squash.

-henry however decided to provoke the angry irish farmer by endlessly sending pictures of him holding stuffed animals of cows and pigs through snapchat, each labeled ‘who’s the real farmer now?’

                -ronan blocks him.

-adam is finally sleeping eight hours a night and is down to one job due to blessed scholarships that paid for both his residence and tuition and he has not felt this safe and happy in years.

-lots of hiking

            -gansey drags them out to the woods at ungodly hours and talks about their next great adventure and quest and holy shit this boy will not stop.

-henry plays pokemon go and ronan nearly throws his phone out the window when he insists that they stop for the super rare pokebaby even if there are cars right behind them and they’re on  a highway like wtf henry your priorities are sad.

               -“one more time cheng”

               -“YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND, LYNCH!”

               -he also names the beedrill after gansey because he’s a bit of an ass.

-adam is getting boxes from nino’s for moving. blue turns his bedroom into a massive cardboard box fort, complete with cupcakes and lemonade and blankets.

-ronan likes to take naps there and dreams up flower crowns.

-gansey grows more mint plants. they’re a symbol of life to him and he never wants a single one to wilt.

-he also keeps losing his boat shoes.

              -ronan looks suspicious but in the end it’s been blue all along.

              -ronan steals his polo shirts. gansey is not impressed.

-driving to amusement parks! blue and henry take an unimpressed selfie each time gansey insists on pulling over to look at some historical monument at some point.

-adam is hella not convinced about the rollercoasters

-neither is gansey lets be honest because our sweet two times dead child does not want to go a third time. he dutifully follows blue on each ride though only because she is a wild child that lifts her arms up in the air and likes the rush and damnit if gansey isn’t holding tight to her hand each time.

-henry thrives on the drop tower.

           -and cotton candy

           -and funnel cake

-ronan takes roughly a million photos of henry’s hair since all the rides completely wrecked his carefully styled ‘masterpiece’.

-also: adam and ronan kiss and it tastes like lemonade and suddenly ronan starts craving lemonade all of the times.

-gansey has been trying to find apartments. he has a year off between school and blue wants to live for the first time uncursed.

-eventually they find a loft halfway between ronan’s farm and adam’s school.

-it’s above a used bookstore and cafe and blue falls in love with it.

-she makes curtains for the windows that are different colours and nothing in the loft matches in terms of decorations. wind chimes made from coca cola bottles and prints of frida kahlo and fairy lights hung everywhere.

-adam and ronan give them firefly lanterns.

-henry makes them paint the spare bedroom yellow and black because they all better know he is going to be crashing there.

-summer is ending and they are all painfully aware of it

-gansey has been sleeping like a normal human

-adam has been as well

-ronan still can’t be called a normal human

-blue takes a photo for her instagram account on the very last night of summer of the group in the field surrounded by the stars and fireflies and it;s beautiful, and in the photo you can almost make out the sight of smudgy boy standing next to ronan

-they all drive adam to his new dorm the next day and completely terrify his roommate

         -three boys in the hallway attempted to catcall blue and had a face full of a pissed ronan and gansey, and even worse, an annoyed blue.

        -henry brought far to many cactuses to decorate adam’s desk with just so he would have something to remember ronan by

               -”because, you know, your boyfriend is a giant prick”

          -ronan also brought a snow globe with glitter.

-blue also strings up more fairy lights because try and stop the five foot girl wearing the shirt with the words ‘not your babe’ across the front.

             -ronan assists in stringing them above the desk and bed because she wasn’t quite tall enough

-gansey tears up a little bit at the sight of his boy going off to his school.

-henry takes photos and eventually talks in one of the traumatized boys that blue tore skin off verbally into taking a group photo of them.

             -it’s a bit crowded, since they’re doing it in adam’s shared bedroom.

            -henry has blue on his shoulders and one her hands is messing up gansey’s hair while ronan is wearing a flower crown that adam brought with him, one arm around his waist and has the smuggest smirk on his face while adam looks so blissfully happy.

-a week later blue and gansey quietly move into their loft

            -three days after a doormat shows up saying “fuck off”

-it’s perfect

Okay, y’all. Owl City On The Verge Tour Experience! Spoilers ahead...

I bought my tickets early. Like, the week they came on pre-order early. Fast-forward to October 5, 2015…

 Mid-afternoon, I pack my stuff and fly to Nashville.

Next I hopped in a cab and headed to the Cannery. Upon my arrival, I saw a bunch of Hoot Owls lined up on the sidewalk. I should have expected that, but I didn’t think about how many people were as excited about this concert as I was.

We were soon herded off into our own VIP line far ahead of everyone else (sorry guys).

We were taken inside and instructed not to take selfies. I asked the stage manager what the reason for this rule was and she said that selfies generally take up too much time and not everyone gets their fair share of time with Adam. (Seriously, they should start this an hour early.)

I was first in line to meet Adam. First one on the first night of the tour. What. But then I saw @asitfillswithlight behind me and I went to say hi to her.

I managed to get back second in line. I was having a conversation with a dad who really didn’t want to mess up his daughter’s picture. I was trying to show him the best ways to ensure that he took great pictures. As I was speaking with him, the crowd fell silent. They all looked over my shoulder as Port Blue softly started playing. I turned around and there he was. Adam Young. I didn’t have time to gather the thoughts and things I was going to say to him, so our conversation ended up going like this:

Me: Am I actually talking to Adam Young?

Adam: I don’t know… I think so!

(I shake his hand and introduce myself.)

Me: Man, thank you for everything.

Adam: Well, thank you for coming!

Me: Talk about surreal, meeting the guy you look up to that’s always writing about surreality.

Adam: Yeah, definitely. Thank you.

Me: So did you fly in?

Adam: Yeah, we flew!

Me (forgetting all the interviews that say he doesn’t like flying): Do you like flying much?

Adam: Um, not so much.

(We both laugh. At this point, the stage manager or whoever she was started rushing us to take our photo. She doesn’t appear to know how to change exposure, but that’s okay. I’m gonna actually fix it in Photoshop soon.)

By this time, I’m ushered to the main concert area and told to find a spot. Still spinning from the sheer surreality of this whole thing, I walk right up the stage, to the front row. (We didn’t have seats, but I was right at the front.) I realized that I hadn’t given Adam the letter I had written him earlier. I peeked around the corner of the fabric backdrop.

Me: Hey, Adam!

Him: Yeah?

Me: This is for you.

Him: For me? Thank you!

I walked back to my spot, happy with the experience so far. We stood around for about an hour, and then Rozzi Crane came out and performed a few songs. (Oh my gosh. Her vocal range… I can’t) We realized before she came out that her setlist had been put on a piece of paper so she wouldn’t forget any songs. Being on the front row, I took a flash photo of the setlist, turned my camera upside down, and saw the setlist.

Warning: This next part contains spoilers not only to Rozzi’s setlist but also to Adam’s. If you are attending an On The Verge concert and don’t want it spoiled, then don’t read the parts that are italicized. You have been warned!

Rozzi’s Setlist:


• Jealous

• What a Girl Wants by Christina Aguilera (Cover)

• Painkiller > Mirrors

• How Come You Don’t Call Me by Prince (Cover)

• Psycho

After Rozzi finished her set, she hung out at the merch booth and took photos while Adam’s show got set up. (She was super nice oh my gosh)

When Adam’s setlist was taped down, I jumped at the chance to photograph it.

Adam’s Setlist:

• Mobile Orchestra Intro (Jasper played his guitar with a violin bow and it was amazing.)

• Bird With a Broken Wing (I recorded this one in HD. It was the only one that I took on my GoPro. I’ll upload it via YouTube soon. My Nikon had some weird settings to record super low quality in super slow motion… so it cut out half the audio. If there’s one of these that you want to hear, it’s likely I caught at least half of it on LQ video. You can inbox me to get that.)

• Dreams and Disasters (The transition between BWABW and DD was so seamless.)

• Dementia



• Unbelievable

• Beautiful Times (JUST YES)

• Kamikaze (This just gets better and better)

• Meteor Shower (He dropped his pick right as he was starting to strum and handled it like a total pro)

• This Isn’t The End

• Sky Diver

• Midtro (I quite honestly forget what this was… I’ll go back and check my footage. If anything turns up, I’ll make an edit.)

• My Everything (For this one he used the dreamy My Everything preview he posted on Instagram recently. The atmosphere during this song was spectacular.)

• Back Home/Fireflies (Adam opened this by mashing up the lyrics to the chorus of fireflies and Back Home, then when he was on his final chorus, he looped the vocal where he sang the word “fireflies” over and over and over again, making a seamless transition into Fireflies.)

• The Medley (This was an Owl City dream mashup. Tip of the Iceberg, Umbrella Beach, Cave In, and one or two more I can’t recall. They all blended perfectly.)

• Verge (Verge was great. Some people have complained about his range being too high in this one, but like, have you heard Thunderstruck? Just saying. He nailed every high note he hit.)

• Deer in the Headlights (Everyone. Went. Nuts. As soon as they realized this was playing. It was amazing.)

• Hello Seattle (This one started off with a cool guitar-ish version of the Hello Seattle Remix. It transitioned into the Ocean Eyes version of Hello Seattle.)

After they played this song, Adam said “Thank you so much! We’ll see you next time!” After the band exited the stage, the crowd chanted, “ONE MORE SONG! ONE MORE SONG! ONE MORE SONG,” at which point the band returned to play

• Good Time (Accompanied by Rozzi Crane. Which I have to admit, I really, really liked, even though Good Time is not one of my favorite Owl City songs.)

(I’m not sure what happened to the 99 Red Ballons cover. They may have just cut it for time.)

Spoilers over.

Here are some pictures from the show! I’m happy to send any of these to you without a watermark for edits or whatever, but if you plan to use them online, I’ll ask that you credit me and my blog. Inbox me if you want details about that.

EDIT: I forgot to include his shoes. You’re welcome.

After the concert was over, I talked to some hoot owls, got some pictures, and had a fantastic time soaking in the atmosphere. Here’s a picture I got with Leah (@asitfillswithlight ). Y’all should follow her if you haven’t already.

And then, after talking to Gabe about drums and GoPros, buying some awesome merch (I got a wonderful t-shirt and a fantastic poster), and saying farewell to all my new friends, it was time to say goodbye to the skylines and hello to the tree lines. I took off from Nashville and got home safely a couple hours later.

So that was my experience at my first Owl City concert! The whole night was incredible. I hope I’ll be able to go to another one whenever he’s back around.

Oh yeah, and you should reblog this cause I spent like, a thousand hours writing it and your followers probably want to see it too If you have any further questions, feel free to send me an ask and I’ll do my best to answer them.

anonymous asked:

*cough* Adam Driver's wife looks like a corpse *cough*

Totally and completely disagree, Anon. Personally, I think she’s a natural beauty and seems like a truly smart cookie. That being said, I do acknowledge that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and maybe she’s not your cup of tea. However, she is Adam’s. I’m assuming you messaged me or follow my page because you like/love/admire him, as I do. So, since I respect him, I respect her as his spouse. They seem pretty crazy about each other, have been together for years, and work together to run their non-profit, Arts in the Armed Forces. 

Also, Adam is consistently criticized for his looks, and yet there’s a whole army of us who’d probably be willing to testify to his handsomeness and outer beauty (to say nothing of his good inner qualities). 

Finally, Daisy Ridley was recently criticized for her looks and shape, and had some great things to say in response, so I’m linking to an article about that here:

Tayvin, Friends and a Campfire PART 2

Hi everyone, because I had such positive feedback from my first fanfic, I decided to do a part 2. Cue the excitement. Anyway I would like to apologise to for the few typos I have now spotted in my work. I’m going to be writing another fic based on a prompt sent by an anon and that should be up later this week.


I realised three things when I woke up this morning about the man that had his body wrapped around mine. 1. He must be having an exciting dream, because his body was obviously enjoying it. 2. I really wanted to know why he would have swiped left on me. 3. I really really love this man. And I was going to an answer to the second thing. “Babe, wake up. It is important. Come on wake up. Babe,” I pulled myself out of Adam’s hold on my body and started shaking his shoulders. “Baby, what is it?” His husky, voice croaked out, his words laced in his Scottish accent, sounding so much thicker in the morning. “I have to know, why did you swipe left on me?” I asked him as I peppered kisses on his face everywhere but his lips. He finally got sick of my teasing and he grabbed my face and smashed my lips into his, with so much passion and lust. After so many minutes he pulled away and laid back down on our blow up bed, pulling me down with him. “I guess I had always admired you, I always wanted to meet you, have the opportunity to collaborate with you. And I have followed your career for years and heard Ellie talk about you. I understood that if you even stood in the same vicinity as a guy the media would go crazy. I just didn’t want that to happen. I guess in my own way I was trying to protect you.” My heart clenches at his words. He was protecting me before he even knew me. How can this man, with his body tangled with mine, not be called perfect? So overcome with emotion I grab his neck and bring my lips up to his and it quickly turns passionate. He rolls me over so he is on top and starts sliding my top off while the same time he starts kissing towards my cleavage.

But that all stops very suddenly when we have 9 pillows thrown at us, all at once and all of them making the target in one way or another.  We quickly break apart and Karlie gives Ellie a massive death eye, “Seriously why did you have to introduce these two, they are like sex bunnies? It is just gross,” she states, then turning to us she says, “and this is why no one wanted to share a tent with you. Because you two are gross. WITH A CAPITAL G!” So embarrassed by the series of events, I look down at my hands, to avoid making eye contact with anyone. “Okay yes, Karlie you are right it is slightly gross. But it is also kind of beautiful with how in love these two are. Like just look at them,” Charlie protests, umm Charlie everyone is looking at us I thought to myself. “I wish I had something like that,” Charlie finishes his defense on our behalf. We all look at him in puzzlement and I finally decide to speak up, the first time since the start of everything going down, “Okay guys I’m sorry you had to witness that, especially you Austin, but you can stop covering your eyes now and Charlie YOU ARE ENGAGED! Seriously, also WE ARE NOT SEX BUNNIES! And please leave so we can get dressed.”

Everyone slipped away from view, but I could still hear Burns joking with Charlie about his reaction. We continued our make out session, careful not to go too far considering my brother was less than 20m from us.

A short while later we slipped out of a tent and joined everyone for breakfasting, toasting breakfast scones on the warm coals from last night’s fire, crisping them up slightly. Breakfast was over quickly and we all sat back down on the logs surrounding the fire and started a game of Never Have I Ever. The group came up with the standard like ‘never have I ever had a threesome’ or ‘never have I ever been walked in on.’ Adam and I both had to take a shot of wasabi sauce for the last one. And then the turn got to Cara and without even thinking she said, “Never Have I Ever hooked up or dated a member, past or present, of One Direction.” I looked over at her with wide eyes and reluctantly took my shot then leaned back into Adam. Everyone was still staring at Cara and she finally broke the silence. “What is wrong with what I said?” Oblivious to the problem and then she looked over at me and realised, her own eyes growing bigger and bigger. “Shit Taylor I wasn’t even thinking I was just trying to get Selena to confess because missy is keeping her mouth shut about Niall.”

I nodded at her, letting her know that it was fine. “Hang on Selena, did you hook up with Niall from One Direction?” Charlie asked. “Niiicceee,” was his only response when Selena remained silent. “Guys I didn’t hook up with him alright. It was just rumours,” Selena finally explained. It finally got to me and I looked up to Adam and smirked, “Never Have I Ever swiped left on my future girlfriend/boyfriend,” everyone laughed at that one and Adam just raised his glass to his lips and skulled the disgusting drink. And because I went Adam finally had his own turn and this time he turned to me and smirked, “Never Have I Ever started using sexual innuendos I found from tumblr in real life. Like scrabble.” All I could do was glare and down my shot. And that opened a floodgate of questions of the group asking for clarification but it was hard to decipher who asked what and what exactly was said when all of a sudden a massive gasp was heard and Austin screamed and then spoke, “Is that what scrabble tournament means? Is that what you were texting Adam about Teffy when I was visiting in the studio and I saw that text? Ewww that is wrong on so many levels. I am your younger brother.” Everyone just laughed as a rested my head on Adam’s shoulder and nodded. And they couldn’t stop laughing. I looked up to Adam and simply said, “This is all your fault.” He just chuckled and brought me in closer.

That next day, yesterday was a full day not doing much, we were packing up because we were heading back to the city that day, in the same cars we came in.  And as soon as we got service on our phones I was on tumblr, leaning my head against Adam’s shoulder, he was also looking at my screen. After two posts I final saw something, something that I wish wasn’t on the internet. “Elena Jane Goulding WHAT THE HELL DID YOU POST ON INSTAGRAM AND WHAT IS THAT CAPTION. YOU CAN’T POST PHOTOS OF ADAM AND ME WITHOUT TELLING US.  YOU TWO CHARLIE I KNOW YOU WERE INVOLVED!” I said, well more like yelled at Ellie, but I was justified because she had posted a photo of Adam and I in the car on our way to the campgrounds, my head in his lap and him running his hands softly through my hair.  And the caption was ‘I am retiring as a singer and becoming professional matchmaker #nomoretayvindrought #youareallwelcome.’ “Oh come on babe it is kind of funny and everyone on tumblr is pretty damn happy,” Adam whispered into my ear and he was right everyone on tumblr was happy but no one was happier than me, because I was in my favourite spot in the whole world. Adam’s arms and heart.
Troian Bellisario ‘Cried Hysterically’ at Fiancé Patrick J. Adams’ Post About the End of Pretty Little Liars
The Pretty Little Liars stars weren’t the only ones sharing emotional social media posts about the official end of filming. Troian Bellisario’s fiancé Patrick J. Adams also shared an sw…

“I cried hysterically at his post,” Bellisario, 31, told PEOPLE at a celebration of the show’s final season in Los Angeles on Saturday. “He nailed it. He got it totally. Everybody in our lives that cares about us that has had to share us with Pretty Little Liars has this mixed feeling about it being over. They’re so grateful that we get to be back and a part of their lives, but they also know that this has been our everything for seven years, so it’s like the death of a friend.”

What 2013 was for Owl City

This year was absolutely chock full of kerfuffles within the fandom – arguments about offensive tweets, arguments about music, arguments about god knows what, the worst being the issues with Daniel Jorgensen. All I can say is that we must be thankful that none of it got any worse, and that it just means a new future for Owl City itself. We all just gotta put it behind us and look forward to the new music Adam’s working hard on!

Let’s look back in joy at what 2013 brought to the fandom!;

-The release of the Metropolis music video

-The release of the full, uncut Flames pond episodes

-Adam featuring in Lights’ acoustic “Cactus in the valley”

-Adam’s “Shine Your Way” for The Croods movie

-his “Live it up” for the Smurfs2 movie

-Adam featuring in Reliant K’s “That’s my jam”

-Adam featuring with Toby Mac in Veggie Tales’ “Light of Christmas”

-Adam’s involvement with the Wonderfilled campaign

-That “Pop tarts thinks Owl City is crazy good!” thing

-The release of OCTMS acoustic with Hey Anna and I Hope You Think Of Me (finally)

-New port blue songs :D

-Adam reaching 1 million followers on twitter and 100 million views on the fireflies video

-And lets not forget Adam’s instagram gems; “Like a fridge full of frozen pizza”, Adam skateboarding in his undies, showing us snippets of songs and making silly faces, etc.

plus more things I can’t think of right now, feel free to add to the list :P

I was hoping this year would bring us a TMS concert DVD, but oh well, maybe next year. I’m sure we were all hoping for a new album, but never fear, Adam is taking the time to create the most amazing tracks you have ever heard! We just gotta sit tight and support him. Good things take time :)

Peace out like a trout xx

Vegas, je t’aime

September 2015


I sat on the sofa in Adam’s new house, scrolling through Tumblr and laughing at all my fans being completely over dramatic. A lot of the time I just scroll through my dashboard without liking anything. I’ve realised that when they know I’m on they post a load of stuff to try to get me to see it….which is lovely but sometimes I just want to see what’s going on without getting, for lack of a better word, spammed.

“Are you on Tumblr again babe?” Adam called from the attached kitchen, where he was currently preparing what he deemed the greatest salad on the planet.

“Maybe….” I replied

“Are they still DYING over the fact we have never posted a selfie or anything?” He replied, trying to convey how dramatic he thought my swifties were, although deep down I knew he loved them as much as I did.

“Maybe….it’s so fun! Like they keep saying every single time you post a snapchat or either of us posts a picture on instagram their hearts skip a beat thinking it could finally be the end of what they have called the ‘tayvin drought’…and then they go and make super realistic photoshopped pictures of us which freak me out slightly….it’s hilarious!” I said, trying my best not to laugh as I wandered into the kitchen..

“Let’s see them…” Adam replied sitting on one of the barstools I helped him pick out, and pulling me onto his lap.

I scrolled through my dash showing him the photos and posts.

“Sometimes I feel like we are torturing them by keeping all these photos to ourselves….” I said, going out of tumblr and scrolling through my camera roll showing Adam all the photos I had of the two of us on my phone….like it was seriously way over half my camera roll at the moment.

“Well…you could just post one….or let me put you in my snapchat video instead of just the cats….but it’s up to you babe.” Adam said as I nuzzled my head into the crook of his neck.

“How about this…. I post a screenshot of my camera roll showing just the top or bottom of one of the photos….or will that just make it worse…maybe I should just post a photo….but no….but maybe….” I was voicing my current internal debate and I could feel the rumble of Adam’s laugh as I leaned on his chest.

“Ok well you sort that all out, and I will serve lunch.” He replied, lifting me off his lap and placing me back on the stool while he got bowls for the salad.


“Are you still coming to my show tonight?” I asked Taylor as she cleared the table after lunch.

“Yeah, for sure! I haven’t been for ages now!!” She replied, excited to be able to see me perform after I’d been to quite a few of her shows….although it was a little different. “It’s nice to have a few days off before I have to head out again!”

“Well it’s nice to have you here….the house feels a little big for just little old me.” I tell her, wrapping my arms around her from behind as she washed up.

“Well….Charlie and Burns basically live with you….so you’re not all alone….” She explained

“But they have their own lives!” I try to defend the fact that my friends are always around.

“I’m just joking Adam, I love how close you and your 'squad’ are…it’s cute!” She replied, bopping me on the nose like she does to Olivia and Meredith and walking away.

later that evening at the show


I was standing behind the DJ booth, mainly out of the sightline of all the people in the club, watching Adam work the crowds and play a mix of his older and newer songs, to the delight of the audience.

“TAY! You’re here!!” Charlie screamed as he walked towards me, having just arrived around half way through the set.

“Charlie!! So great to see you!!” I replied, wrapping my arms around him in a friendly hug.

We started chatting and taking photos of Adam, the crowd, atmosphere, and each other.

“Oh this is a great shot! It’s like you guys to a T ” Charlie exclaimed, handing me back my phone.

The photo had me smiling at the camera making a hand heart in front of me, with Adam in the distance behind me having turned around for a second to look back at us, he had his arms out to the sides and the biggest grin on his face.

“Hahah, yeah that looks great!!” I replied, smiling at the photo and seeing how the strobe lights and darkness of the club made me and Adam stand out. It was perfect, showing our personalities exactly the way we were and the way our friends saw it.

“Well you only get one shot to get it right…” I murmured going into instagram and formatting the picture. I then sat watching the rest of Adam’s set thinking about a caption.

Just as he was coming down from the DJ box I thought of it: 'Vegas…je t'aime’.

I posted it then went up to Adam.

“Congratulations babe! #That was fantastic!!” I told him wrapping my arms around his broad chest.

“Thanks babe!” He replied, walking me backwards to his friends table without letting me go.

“Taylor, you little ninja! You’ve set the internet on fire!” Charlie said, slightly drunk and laughing his head off.

“Wait? What?” Adam said, pulling out his phone to a bunch of notifications.

“So…yeah….kinda just gave them what they wanted….” I said, slowly and carefully to gage his reaction.

“That picture is awesome!! I love it babe!” Adam said, grinning broadly, making my shoulders relax completely.

I knew he had been waiting for me to post something, he just wanted to let me do it in my own time, no pressure, just overwhelming support.
