The waitress delivers her drink silently, sets it on the coaster with a quiet thunk, disappears. Her name is Micha, she has two children, and she came to Earth from a planet whose name Lena cannot pronounce. Her children are seven and nine, and Liam plays soccer and Cole is good at math, and Lena knows all of this because Micha told Kara while Lena sat beside her.
Kara radiates a heat that draws Lena in against her will; she thinks she sat opposite Kara in a booth the first time Kara brought her here, but if she did it was the only time.
She’s never been here without Kara before, and the bar feels different tonight.
Halfway through her drink, an alien beer that is blue and tastes like cinnamon, her seat dips, and she expects to see Kara when she looks up, but instead it is Alex, dressed all in black and dripping with rain.
“You’re not a very difficult person to track down.”
this is the shittiest thing, in the entire fucking world, that you can do.
for starters, this is alex and lisa’s big day. it’s SO obvious how much effort lisa’s put into making it as perfect as it can be. don’t ruin this for them.
weddings are typically the happiest days of people’s lives. don’t fucking ruin the happiest day of their lives just because you want to meet the band.
you may think it’s okay to crash alex and lisa’s wedding because all time low loves their fans, but you’re just being selfish. you’re literally only thinking about yourself, and you’re disregarding how anyone else might feel.
sure, you’ll be happy that you met the band, but do you fucking realize that they weren’t happy to meet you there? you’ll be singlehandedly making them despise you.
you may be happy, since you met your favorite band, but think about how they feel. lisa will be crushed. her big day is ruined by some piece of shit wanting to meet the band. alex will be pissed. he’s been dating lisa for 10+ years, and when he finally marries her, some asshole comes along and ruins it. the rest of the band will think you’re nothing but a selfish, disgusting piece of shit who doesn’t care about the fact that she could ruin their best friend’s wedding, and only cares about herself.
remember that time some girls went to alex’s house and asked for pictures? yeah, this is almost as bad, if not, maybe worse. everyone knows that those girls who stalked alex are disgusting, and you’d probably agree too. but this is literally the same concept.
alex doesn’t have to share his private life with us. us knowing about his engagement, his fiancée, wedding plans, that’s a privilege. it’s his private life, but he chooses to share it with us. he could just as easily not tell us anything. you fuck up this one thing for him, and he’s not going to want to share things with the fans anymore.
overall, just be a human fucking being and stop only thinking about yourself.
