also the credits song is really good

i know y'all have been gunning for a tfc tv show but I’m about to make all ur dreams come true…….. All For the Game: The Musical

  • holy shit.. i know
  • a 3-act musical for each book… it would be long as hell (at least 3 hours), but it would be Worth It
  • show opens with the song “Running”, neil is introduced
  • the exposition is laid quickly followed by the upbeat track “Meet the Monsters”
  • “Better Luck Next Time” -andrew n neils first duet
  • they’re are a Lot of andreil duets; some of everyone’s favs are “You’re a Fox”, “Upping the Percentage”, “I’d Go Back For You”, “Oh, Neil”, “You Liar!”, and “Yes or No?”
  • actually this musical is just half sexually charged duets, half exy games
  • not that anyone is complaining
  • also the training song sequence
  • eden twilight’s music is sultry and sexy and the lighting is low
  • ‘I’m fine” “I’m fine reprise” “I’m (not) fine” (to the tune of i’m fine)
  • “I can be calm” “Ok That Time Didn’t Work Lets Try This Again” “Well Fuck That Noise (Riko I Hate You)” all neil solos…. all fantastic
  • all of neil’s clapbacks ……. rapped
  • speaking of that…..andrew and allison? they rap battle
  • renee has the most beautiful solo…. she’s so talented
  • riko thankfully only gets one song in the entire musical, titled ‘The Raven King’ but it gets interrupted about five lines in bc Neil starts singing over him
  • “I do what I want” - andrew minyard’s first solo but the choreography is the exact same from bet on it in hsm 2
  • Kevin always, ALWAYS breaking the fourth wall and monologuing how much he hates his team to the audience
  • the guy who plays Kevin is a fan favorite, arguably his acting is the best and his song “Never Been Skiing” sold like crazy
  • when shit starts to get sadder……songs start to get sadder
  • the song “Nathaniel” left everyone in the audience in tears… holy shit don’t forget the scene in act 2 
  • and the other scene in act 2…..fuck
  • there’s lots of crying.. like any good musical
  • but also its funny.. like nicky has some really comedic lines and his song (“I just want a gay friend”) is fantastic…
  • its so uplifting too!!!”
  • u can’t tell me that they didnt somehow fit the music to no scrubs by tlc, zero to hero from the hercules soundtrack, and wannabe by the spice girls in this production
  • this show gains a cult following
  • tony’s are won……. shitty high school productions are put on….. its truly amazing

add to this if you want!!! credit also to @skysap for giving me ideas!!!

  • Newsies Boyband AU!
  • Now first of all I would call them the Newsboys but like…that’s a real band that exists so idk what their name would be
  • But anyway! Boybands! Fun and cute and lots of wiggle room!
  • Crutchie
    • lead singer
    • beloved by his bandmates and by most fans but every once in awhile there’s that one fan
      • Idk I just think Charlie is overrated….he can’t sing that well, Jack has a nicer voice, and I think he only gets to sing lead because of his leg :/ I’m not ableist or anything, I just don’t like him
    • Mostly Crutchie ignores things like that but once in awhile he wonders if they’re true
  • Jack
    • lead guitar/harmonies
    • very much the Hot Onetm but people tend to overlook his talents
    • designed the logo and does all of the shirts and album covers but doesn’t make that public knowledge
    • the Crutchie Bashers usually use Jack as an excuse and Jack is having none of it he’s a master vague tweeter
      • I love all my bandmates and everyone is perfectly suited to what they do, from lights to vocals!
      • I feel like people forget Crutch and I have been best friends since fifth grade and I have videos like this cause if they didn’t they’d ask for more [video of Crutchie singing The Wizard and I at a middle school talent show]
    • he loves singing harmony, and only sings lead if somebody makes him. two songs in their repertoire include him on melody
  • Race
    • the drummer
    • (haha guess who still likes EYDW with all his heart?)
    • he’s the Wild Onetm but everyone adores him because he’s cute and funny
    • Racetrack Higgins Highlights:
      • “So I was like, fuck it-wait shit I can’t swear in interviews-fuck! Dammit, sorry, I-” “Race just stop talking”
      • he broke a snare during a concert once and put it on his head like a hat
      • pictures of him kissing everyone in the band, on crew, and even fans on the cheek but it’s because that’s what he does. In Italy. That’s how you greet people. and it just carried over
      • always wears a necklace with a shark tooth. gazes into the distance when asked where it was from and responds with, “I’ll never forget her.” Actually bought it Wings on a day off in North Carolina
      • changes hair colors every other week. fans go to two concerts in two days. first one he has bright red hair. next day it’s bright blue.
      • slowly acquiring more piercing until one day they’re all gone.
        • “Lmao you though those were real? I cried when I got a single ear piercing.”
      • then people think his tattoo is fake and it isn’t but it’s ridiculous. like literally the word “THOT” on the back of his neck. Spot dared him to.
    • so people love him even though he’s wild
  • Spot
    • designs sound for recordings and live shows
    • most fans only know him as the one goading Race on
    • but once in a while somebody recognizes him in the sound booth and is like “ahh, that’s who he is”
    • also secretly write lyrics sometimes but asks to be credited as “Sam Carlson” so his poetic writing doesn’t ruin his tough guy image
    • which makes people think of all these crazy theories as to who Sam Carlson is and why he writes songs randomly for the band
    • is the only reason Race hasn’t gotten lost on tour in a gas station
    • is the one who set up the Walkie Talkie system that keeps everyone organized
    • the star of Jack’s snapchat story half the time but never caught doing anything strange? people just know he’s awesome and says funny things
    • is the one who adopted the cat and resulted in him being named Asshole but it was an accident
  • Katherine and Sarah
    • managers and lighting designers
    • really cool and really gay
    • every time they’re doing a show around a Pride parade time or during Pride month there are rainbows and other flags everywhere
    • Sarah is also in charge of PR after the Incident of Race accidentally DMing a fan who’s username included Jack’s name something along the lines of “sup fuckface where are you everyone else is here and you’re the one who said he was bringing the good stuff”
      • by good stuff he’d simply meant the Purple Doritos but the fan didn’t know that and it took a while for people to let that go
    • People think Jack and Kat are dating for a long time because they’re always together
    • it literally took like fifty pictures of Kat and Saz kissing before people stopped denying how gay she was
  • Davey
    • plays bass but also violin and other related string instruments
    • sometimes sings a third part but not usually
    • people don’t give him much credit until there’s a new song
    • which starts out really slow and is only Jack singing and Davey playing cello but mid song it picks up and Dave changes instruments really fast like in the space of one beat to violin and goes really hard and the song tops the charts for weeks because it’s like crazy good
      • “yeah I’m a classically trained violinist, I just usually have more fun on bass” “…” “but i like that song a lot, most times I’m on violin it’s slow and boring”
    • that song is also when most of the Crutchie Bashing started because it was the first really popular one that featured Jack on melody since only Jack sang
  • Their shows are legendary for being good like the vocals the instrumentals everything is always good
  • they got their start in college where Crutchie got them into one of the theatres and it was just for fun
  • but Race, the wild one even in the very beginning, realized that they were actually really good and signed them up for some show like America’s Got Talent or something like that
  • and while they didn’t win overall, they did get enough attention to get a record deal
  • and then they just EXPLODED and became the new big thing
  • which kind of freaked all of them out a little bit because what has started as fun music with friends was suddenly paparazzi and crazy fans and people wanting to know “when is it what is it where is it how are you will you” about their songs
  • but they mostly acclimated pretty fast
    • Crutchie had the hardest time because while he’s friendly he’s also a but of an introvert and needs his privacy which was suddenly a lot harder to find
  • like most boybands, instantly there were Those Fans who shipped people
    • the most common one became Jack and Race because they seemed like the ones most likely to like each other
    • really though it was Spot and Race, who balanced each other out, and Jack and Crutchie, who’d been in love for years and only figure it out when people started trying to ship Jack and Race which made Crutchie really jealous, and the people who nobody knew as well like Specs and Romeo, Kat and Saz (at first they became better known later), etc
  • they get a really good rep with people because they’re always willing to take a selfie or like fanart as long as it isn’t creepy, or answer questions
  • Jack hosts monthly Q&A sessions on his snapchat and each time it’s somebody new
    • so like the first one is Crutchie, then Davey, then Race, then Katherine, then Sarah, the Romeo, etc
  • They don’t come out for a long time but one day they’re performing in a town where there’s this big news story about a gay kid getting harassed at school and they know the kid is there because it was the only positive thing they found on his twitter, so they all come out together like the entire band and crew
    • “So we’ve heard about some of the stuff that’s been going on here, and we want everyone to know that we don’t agree with it, at all. In fact, things like that effect us, too. I’m not the most eloquent speaker, but if you’re hurting today because of who you are, of how you’re born, know that you’ll always have support with us.”
    • And Jack kisses Crutchie in public for the first time which leads to Race stealing Crutchie’s mic and yelling something about “get up here asshat we can’t let him show us up!” and then suddenly every single couple involved in the band is on stage being proud of who they are
    • the kid who was getting bullied cried and then they invited him backstage and he cried more and it was really sweet and they stayed in touch
  • After that the Discoursetm is horrible around them for like, months
    • “reminder that Jack is dating Crutchie and shipping him with Race is not cool”
    • “reminder that we can ship whoever we want with whoever we want and it doesn’t cause harm”
    • “stop calling Jack bi when he’s gay, don’t erase his identity” (jack retweets it with the added caption “I’m bi as heck actually everyone is pretty and it’s not fair :)”
    • “they’re just faking it for attention!!!1!!1″
  • after a few years they announce it’s their last tour and people are like “oh no, what happened, did people start fighting?”
  • and their answer is “no but we’re like twenty eight now and honestly just want to get married and settle down”
    • except for Spot and Race who plan on going around the world in eighty days and then getting a dog and doing it again with the dog
    • or at least, that Race’s plan, Spot just honestly wants to stop moving around and settle down a bit, but maybe not get married yet
  • So the band breaks up and people are kinda sad but every time they’re all in one place, which is pretty often since they’re all best friends, somebody snapchat/instagram/twitter/youtube gets a new video of them messing around
  • Jack and Davey out out a solo album and it’s really good
  • Crutchie gets coerced into releasing a Christmas album and it’s funny
  • and Davey makes a Hanukkah album that’s him playing and singing traditional songs that he sang growing up and it’s gorgeous
  • Bonus: Red Carpet Tidbits
    • because I have a lot of feelings about Crutchie’s style
      • Crutchie gets known for never wearing a normal tux like it’s always custom done and never just black or navy
      • also his makeup is always On Point like crazy good and people are like “tell us your secrets” and he’s like “lol cvs and years of practice and makeup tutorials from YouTube”
  • Jack wears normal suites but there’s always a twist
    • the first was the time he actually just spilled paint on himself in the suit bc he’s an idiot but there wasn’t time for a new one so they ended up just going with it and it looked pretty okay
    • and after that he get’s suites from like Macy’s modified to look better on him and to add cool things
    • also his hat game is pretty terrific
    • he’s also a total hipster and people know it
  • Davey wears totally normal red carpet men’s attire but lets Crutchie do his makeup and look absolutely gorgeous
  • Race wears crazy stuff
    • like you know the Great Comet ensemble costume design? probably things like that. formal wear turned into punk style things and he pulls it off and lets Crutchie do his makeup too
  • the best picture of the band is from like, the Grammys or some award show like that where Crutchie is in a purple suit, Jack is wearing a beanie and a jackson pollock styled color splashed suit, dave is looking fine in a perfectly normal suit and SUPER Extra but good makeup, and Race is like barely clothed but still obviously supposed to be wearing a suit like thing and like a foot shorter than everyone

anonymous asked:

Harry is actually a very intricate story teller and a great listener who lives for other people's drama. I actually believe a lot of his songs are other people's stories, with a dash of his own experience to make it a heartfelt song. People also forget there are other writers credited and though this is often those who wrote instrumental lines, they could've contributed to the song writing. Look at Ed Sheeran, he didn't actually have a perfect night with a Galway girl but it made a good song.

you’ve really just gotta take a step back and look at all the different elements that are at play. he can still make it about him while not making it explicitly about him, if that makes sense.

Shore Leave

Jim Kirk X female Reader

Summary: You go on shore leave with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and your best friend Nyota tries to convince you to ask your crush, Jim Kirk, on a date.

Word Count: 2,296

Characters: Reader, Jim Kirk, Nyota Uhura, Leonard McCoy, Hikaru Sulu, Spock (mentioned), Christine Chapel (mentioned)

Warnings: Kissing, slight flirting, the ocean, okay-ish writing

Author’s Note: I started this as a way to break writer’s block, but it turns out this is the longest fic I’ve written to date. I really hope you like it, I tried not to be too out of character, please tell me if you think I’ve failed at that. Sorry for any spelling or grammatical errors. I am not good at writing endings, so sorry ‘bout that. I used the prompt “Don’t get your hopes up” as a starting point on this.


Also, for some reason I see the song Cigarette Daydreams by Cage the Elephant fitting in here somewhere.

“He’s staring at you again,” your best friend Nyota told you, gesturing behind you to the captain. You were eating lunch in the commissary when she spoke up.

“Are you serious? Ugh, Ny, what am I supposed to do,” you ask desperately.

“Ask him out? Come on, we both know you like him too.”

“Even if that were true, I can’t just ask Kirk on a date! He’s captain of the freaking ship, I’m just a lieutenant. And we’re only on year one of a five year mission. Things could go horribly!” you exasperate.

“(Y/N) calm down. It was just a suggestion,” Nyota says placatingly.

Wanting to change the subject, you asked a question. “What are you and Spock planning to do while on shore leave? I heard Risa is a very beautiful class M planet.”

“I read about a few interesting places. Luckily we’ll be there during the Luhlanat, or festival of moons, so I think Spock and I are going to that. What about you?” Uhura decides to go along with the shift in conversation.

“Probably just soaking up the sun on the beach. You have no idea how much I miss being able to feel the organic, solar heat. Which reminds me, I need to replicate a cute swimsuit.” You make a mental note to do that later.

“Is there anybody special that you need a cute swimsuit for?” your friend questions playfully. You scowl at her as way of reply and continue to eat your synthesized food.

A few moments later when you’re about to leave, a yellow shirt enters your field of sight. You sigh inwardly as you already know who it is. “Mind if I walk down to Med-bay with you? I’m on my way to see Bones.”

tonys thoughts pt 2 (performance edition)

Okay preface this by saying all of the performances were incredibly well-done and clean - everyone was seriously on their A-game. Most of this is about the choice of song itself. (Bonus I’m severely unfamiliar with the shows so I do not have examples of other songs they could have done)

(I can’t remember the exact order so these are probably not in it)

Come from Away: I felt the song choice itself was pretty strong - from what I gather it was early in the show and was a good one to feature the whole ensemble. I definitely was curious about the show after watching it. For some reason, though, the stage seemed too big? Also whose head was that…

Miss Saigon: Showcase the incredible lead? Check. Convey the intensity of the show? Check. Highlight the awesome ensemble vocals? Woah!
I do think it was out-of-the-box to do a scene and then a song, but I felt overwhelmingly confused by the first minute or so. Maybe since it’s a revival, they trust the audience to be thrown head-first in, but there was very little context. That being said, it was a powerful showcase.

Groundhog Day: It was a really cute number and the song was nice, I just felt, again, like the context was missing. Who is this woman? Where in the show is this? The ensemble involvement fun - you could definitely see the personalities and variety of the characters, which was very cute. Sidenote anyone else notice a rando standing in the wings?

War Paint: The show was built to showcase two strong leading ladies, and this performance shows us that. I don’t know anything about the musical and the song itself was fine. Forgettable.

Hello, Dolly: I don’t have much to say. They really undeserved the show and its cast with this number. Sure, the song was nice and didn’t really need much explanation, but I knew nothing about this production going in and I’m left with nothing.

Dear Evan Hansen: I was definitely skeptical going into this one, but I have to give credit where it’s due because Ben Platt was lovely. However, as a song to represent the cast of the show? They could have done better - at least a duet or a trio if you’re going to have your chorus oohing and aahing. I also feel like I learned a bunch of Ben Platt’s vocal tics.

Bandstand: For a show without a lot of nominations, I was really impressed by this performance. A good ensemble (and lead) showcase, and I got to appreciate that Tony-winning choreography. Despite any thoughts about this show itself, I thought their performance was well-chosen and very strong.

Falsettos: Even though it was out of context, they made the character relations very clear and did a good job showing off the whole cast. It was also majorly adorable. I guess if I had to nitpick, some of the other performances were showstoppers, and this one wasn’t really, as in, I felt like it was setting me up for a part that didn’t come. Also I’ll say what we were all thinking: thank god they put a wig on that man.

Great Comet: Really good use of space, and great balance between showing off individual vocal chops and highlighting the awesome ensemble. It was big fun, and they managed to convey a lot about the show’s feel despite being on a different stage. I would have liked to see a number with Denée Benton, well, singing, but this was a high-energy performance that was my personal favorite of the bunch.

anonymous asked:

I seen this on another Gorrilaz imagine account and I wanted to see your spin on it. How would 2D react if you had to be one of the girls that was feeling all over Murdoc in the Feel Good Inc. video?

Ohhh, I love this prompt but I’m keeping it gender neutral! I want to credit @all-gorillaz-imagines because I feel the need too since they wrote it first. I also went a little overboard on the prompt.

Stuart Pot (2D): 

2D had wanted you to get a taste into his life. How it was to shoot a video and all the work it went into it. You were kind of excited so when you heard you were going to be an extra, you got really excited. 

“2D, what if I fuck it up? This song could be smash hit and it could all be ruined by me,” You said as you messed with your fingers in nervousness. 

2D laughed, “You’re not going to ruin it love. I’ll make sure that if you’re feeling uncomfortable or anything like that, I’ll tell them to cut.” 

You smiled and followed him out the door. You didn’t know what you were supposed to be doing but whatever part you had, you were going to make sure that you killed it. 

The five of you finally arrived to the studio where they were filming it. You were feeling the jitters but that soon went away after they dragged you towards a trailer to get your make up, hair and clothes done. 

Once you finished, you looked at yourself. You looked fucking amazing. They had you in some rather provocative clothes but you couldn’t complain about it. This was all happening thanks to 2D. 

“Where is 2D’s friend or whatever! We need you by Murdoc, now!” You heard the director scream at you. 

You ran out of the trailer and seen Murdoc laying down on some couch thing. Oh no. What the hell were you going to be doing. Hopefully it wasn’t anything to bad because you knew 2D would stop everything to take him away from you. 

“You, I need you to lay down next to Murdoc. Every other extra step away. You need to lay on Murdoc and pretend like you just did the deed. Play with his nipples or something,” He said as he sat down on his director chair. 

Oh no. 2D was going to have a shit fit. 

You laid down next to Murdoc and the director quickly moved your hand down to Murdocs crotch and your left hand down on his nipple. 

“Well sweetie, at least break up with 2D before you go to me,” Murdoc said as he tried to act innocently about the situation.

The director shouted action. You were supposed to be feeling up all over Murdoc while he played his bass and since you didn’t want to get 2D into any sort of trouble, you had to comply. 

You were feeling up all over his chest, tracing it lightly while the director told you to even go in and start kissing his neck. But as soon as he shouted that out, 2D stomped towards Murdoc and you. 

“What in the hell do you think you’re doing? You said that they were going to be an extra!” 2D screamed as he grabbed the director from his shirt. 

“You either find someone else or you can forget about me continuing this video,” 2D said as he let go of the director and grabbed you by the shirt. 

Murdoc started laughing at 2D’s distress. He had no kinds of feelings towards you but seeing 2D that upset about his partner gave him a kick. 

“Hey! Sweetheart! Once you finish with 2D, you know where to find me!” Murdoc screamed at you. 

“I will actually fucking murder you if you lay another finger on them. Do you understand?” 2D said as he shoved Murdoc against the wall. 

“Okay,” Murdoc said a lot more intimidated at 2D than before.

Hopes for the English Version of Layton’s Mystery Journey:

-Dubbed voices in the localised android/IOS version, or at least have subtitles for Japanese. 

-Decent voice actors for dubbing. Do not give us a repeat of Lost Future Flora’s voice. I’d rather listen to good (subtitled) Japanese voices than terrible dubbing. 

-Diverse accents. Let Kat have a cockney accent, like her Uncle Luke. Make Ernest Italian. Have Emilianna come from… I dunno - the Spanish speaking island of San Grio! The PL games usually has wonderful voice actors, but, believe it or not, there is a world outside of England. Yes, Britishness is a staple of the games and it’s amazing, but after seven games and one movie, I think there’s a little room for variety amongst the main cast. (I know Aurora sounded Irish and Lucy had a seemingly Yorkshire accent. That was awesome.) 

-Christopher Robin Miller better come back to voice older Layton.

-Yuri Lowthenthal is cool, but I’d rather not hear Clive’s voice coming out of Luke’s mouth. 

-References to earlier titles in the series. If there’s a reference in the Japanese version, it sure as heck better make it into the localised version. (Except the part about Flora being a ‘bride candidate’ for Layton. Might wanna skip that part.)

-On the flip side… You know how in some dubbed animes - e.g. Pokemon - they’ll add in some things that weren’t in the original version? If the creators want to sneak in any extra Layton callbacks, please go ahead! 

-No references to English government whatsoever. Not even a sly joke that only older players will understand. I don’t need to be reminded of Brexit or anything else related to politics. Also, Bill Hawks is not even worth a mention - we have Ridley as mayor now. It’s all good. 

-Music: No pop songs, please. The dubbing teams have always left  the soundtrack as it is, and this trend will hopefully continue. The only exception is the credit songs, where they replaced the Japanese singers with instruments. Honestly, I never really minded this because the instrumental versions are just as beautiful? I hope the credits are just as heart-wrenching in Layton’s Mystery Journey! 

- Marketing: So far, the marketing for the English version of the game has been great. (Though, we’ve yet to receive a localised trailer…) The official website is bright, colourful and seems to reflect the feel of the upcoming game. The marketing team don’t need to pull a Ghostbusters 2016. What do I mean by that…? GIRLZ RULE! MOVE OVER, OLD MAN LAYTON! OH ERNEST, YOU SILLY BOY! (I’m so happy we have a female protagonist and a mainly female cast, but Level 5 don’t need to do that.)

-Can Sherl be voiced by Sherlock Holmes? Please…?  

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Sky High could probably be considered one of the best Disney Channel Original Movies, because it was basically flawless except for the ending where instead of either choosing to rock the single life or go out with Warren Peace who genuinely seemed like a good person, she chooses her asshole best friend who is probably the most idiotic and dickish character in the movie besides his father and the bad guys. Also, there's this really weird and kind of awful cover of a really good English Beat song in the ending credits which rubs me the wrong way. But yeah. Sky High.

Break My Heart

Fandom: Supernatural

Pairing: CasxReader

Word Count: 1.6k

Warnings: Angst?? Really nothing

Notes: This took FOREVER to write because I kept getting interrupted so I apologize in advance for the choppiness. Also, the title was inspired by the song ‘Break My Heart’ by Hey Violet

Prompt Summary: Reader notices Castiel’s weird behavior, especially around them. Reader begins to worry and soon realizes what they thought is not the case. 

Credit to GIF owner 

Needless to say, you knew how to hunt. You thought of yourself as a good, responsible hunter, not afraid to get yours hands dirty of you needed to. You didn’t see yourself as vulnerable or weak. Yet, as you and your boyfriend Castiel crept around a what seems to be empty vamp nest, you felt his body staying close up against yours. His hands were balled into fists, feet moving quietly and steadily; he was cautious of everything. You couldn’t help but perk an eyebrow, knowing Castiel was not the most ‘careful’ type, nor did he have many fears. Especially of a tiny vamp nest.

As you rounded the corner, Cas stepped right in front of you, ultimately blocking your view. Your arms flared out are your sides.

“Cas can you please move?” you ask, trying to get a peek of what was in front of him. His head nervous flits towards you and for the first time since you’ve known him, you saw little beads of nervous sweat roll down his forehead.

“Yeah-yeah of course” he mumbles, stepping beside you. You glance over at him and his tense body, continuing on through your journey inside the nest.

A knock comes from a redwood door on the left side of the hallway. You and Cas both turn to the door, looking at each other before you bring your foot down on the slab of wood. It swings open, revealing a pitch black room with furniture scattered everywhere. Your fingers search for the light switches, flicking on the light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. The room is illuminated and quiet. You and Cas stand uneasily, assessing the furniture covered room carefully. However, the silence doesn’t hold out for long.

A tall brunette vamp with disheveled clothing, leaps out from behind one of the couches, looming towards you with his white fangs. Your blade is ready in your hands, waiting for the vamp to come close enough so you can hack its head off. Before it reaches you, its forehead slams into Castiel’s palm. You watch as the vamps skull glows a blinding bright blue, crumpling to the ground as Castiel removes his hand. You glare at Cas who soon meets your stone like glare.

“What?” he asks.

“What was that for?” you ask impatiently. Cas looks from you to the vamp then back at you.

“What was what for?”

You suck in a breath, “I could of easily killed that vamp. I didn’t need you to do it”. Cas continues to stare but doesn’t say anything back. You let out a groan and exit the room.

The entire ride home Cas didn’t say a thing to you. He didn’t even look at you. He kept his eyes pinned to the navy night sky. The only thing that was heard inside the black Impala was the chatter between the Winchester brothers and the soft hum of Dean’s music.

“I’m telling you man, this chick was hot” Dean proclaims from the drivers seat. Sam laughs, “A hot vampire?” he questions. Dean smirks “A hot vampire” he replies.

Deans hands lifts off the wheel as he goes on explaining about the alleged hit vampire. You don’t really care to listen, continuing to think about Castiel and his weirder than usual behavior. What set him off? What was running through his mind?


The next couple days passed in a blur. Cas no longer ‘slept’ next to you at night or accompanied you during hunts. In fact, he rarely even spoke to you. You were beginning to grow worried. He’d never shut himself out from you, he always loved the time spent with you and you loved being around him. In fact, he seemed to cross himself off completely with the exception of small conversations with the Winchesters.

Sam and Dean had found a case just outside of Nebraska that they suspected had demons behind it. Eager to get back out on the road, you pulled out your small bag and began to pack later that night to leave in the morning. As you made your way over to your closet, someone knocked at your door.

“Come in” you called.

The brass doorknob turned, the door slowly opening. Your eyes widened as you saw Castiel standing at the entrance.

“Cas..” you mumble as you head over to him. He welcomes you with open arms, engulfing you in a tight hug. You grip onto him, having not feeling his body against yours for what seems like weeks.

“Cas what’re doing here? Do you need anything?” you ask, as you part. His eyes are fearful yet they keep pinned to you. He sucks in a breath.

“You can’t go on that hunt tomorrow” he mutters.

You furrow your eyebrows, looking up at him with disgust. His gaze shifts from you down to the floor.

“You can’t tell me what to do” is the first thing that came to your mouth. You didn’t realize how harsh it was until you notice Cas’ body recoil. A feeling of guilt washed over you. Cas looks up at you with his pleading blue eyes, tilting his head.

“Please Y/N.. Don’t go” he whispers. His voice was soft and low, the corners of his mouth slightly drooped. You swallowed hard. You wanted to go on this hunt, you wanted to go on every hunt after this. But the way Castiel was looking at you, with worried eyes and tensed muscles, lips pressed into a thin line, you couldn’t push yourself to go.

“Fine Cas..” you mumble, folding you arms across your chest, “But you need to tell me why”. Cas furrows his eyebrows, “Why about what?” he asks. How could he not know? Did he not realize what he was doing?

“Why you’ve been acting so weird. Why you don’t want me to go on this hunt” you say, obviously exasperated. Cas teeters, his hands balling into fists at his sides.

“You’ll find out soon enough” he says and disappears right in front of your eyes.


You spent the next couple hours unpacking, sticking your nose into books and reading up on some leads. The brothers had left early, deciding to take a night trip to Nebraska instead of leaving in the morning; which meant you and Cas were all alone. At around 9:30, Cas appeared in your room with his hands hooked behind his back. You jumped, books tumbling out of your lap.

“Cas! You have to warn me when you do that!” you say in rushed breaths, setting the books atop your bed. Cas lets out a weak smile, looking awfully nervous.

“Sorry Y/N.. it’s just.. I’ve been thinking about something” he mumbles, hands fidgeting behind his back. You look up, your heart beginning to race. You let out a nod, beckoning for him to go on.

“I’ve been thinking about us”

You knew those words all too well. Those words pricked and prodded at your mind, knowing that they could end in a million different words. Those simple five words could make or break any relationship, but from your experience they break more than make.

“Cas wait-” you mutter. While the angel had been thinking, so had you. The past week or so you’d been constantly trying to connect the dots on why his behavior suddenly took a weird turn. You’d rehearsed just about every interaction (there wasn’t a lot since he ignored you for almost a week straight), thought about every thing he and you conversed, his body language, you pondered just about everything. Your brain felt numb after it all, but you finally came to a conclusion.

“I know you want to break up with me. And just, before you say anything I just want you to know that I love you so much and I’m sorry that this didn’t work out” you said, motioning to him then back to you. He looks at you with utter confusion.

“I know how things like this to work. The whole ‘it’s not you it’s me’ thing. So please, just say it. Break my heart” the words come out shaky and painful. You loved Cas with your whole heart, but you wanted him to be happy no matter what.

Cas shakes his head, “Is that you’ve been thinking this whole time?” he asks. You stand quiet, not knowing what to say.

“You thought I wanted to break up with you?” he asks , taking a small step towards you.

“I mean yeah..” is all you can manage to say.

Castiel frowns, “Y/N, I’ve been thinking about us in a good way..” he says. Your heart thumps against your chest. Castiel lowers himself to the ground, propping himself up on one knee.

“Y/N, these past couple years have been so amazing and exciting. I can never keep my mind off of you, and I wish I could explain in words how much love I feel for you” he says. You can’t help but chuckle at his sentences.

“I never want you to doubt how much I love you. I love waking to you in the morning and watching the moon glow above you at night. I love your toughness and bravery, your intelligence and even your stubbornness”. His words come out smooth like silk. His arms swing out from behind his back, revealing a small black velvet box in his hands. Your eyes widen.

“So Y/N, will you make my life even better and marry me?” he says and opens the box, revealing a glistening diamond ring. You feel all your insides jump, adrenaline rushing through your veins.
“Oh Castiel… of course” you say, tears stinging your ears. Cas lets out a grin from ear to ear, sliding the ring onto your ring finger. He stands and cups your red face in his hands, planting a sweet kiss on your lips.


They Might Be Giants, June 2, 2017, Nelsonville Music Festival, Nelsonville, OH

What. A. Show. TMBG headlined Night 2 of NMF, and the lovely @nosleeptilltacos and I got a front row spot. The act before was Rodriguez, who drew a surprisingly huge crowd, so I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get anywhere near the stage. The moment Rodriguez ended, though, the crowd started to disperse, and Brandi and I weaved our way through folks all the way up to the rail. The only people ahead of us were a mom and her young son, and we were more than okay letting them have absolute front row.

The band started off with “Damn Good Times,” which is the only appropriate way to kick off any concert, no matter the band. It’s just federal law. The rest of the show was a total all-ages festival set, with just hit after hit after hit, plus a lot of the popular kids songs, and a couple new tracks for good measure. During “Why Does The Sun Shine?,” Linnell referred to the elements smashed in the sun as “Akron, Cincinnati…Dakron…Columbu…tanium,” and other poorly-remembered Ohio cities. They hit me with a one-two punch of lesser-played songs with “Everything Right is Wrong Again” and “Letterbox,” and I definitely lost my shit at “Everything,” because it’s straight up one of my favorite tracks.

About halfway through the show, Linnell got a call from “Mama TMBG,” the matriarch who birthed all five members of the band simultaneously. She said she got a text from “a man claiming to be from the Nelsonville Music Festival,” and he said there was no curfew, but to “keep the patter down.” Mama TMBG then talked way too much about being pwnd, and the birth of the band, right down to the terrible details of the afterbirth and the mucous plug. After that, it was back to the hits. This was my second time seeing “Don’t Let’s Start,” and I was just as excited as I was the first time; it’s a tune that gets the crowd movin’. “Particle Man” included a cover of “Chandelier,” which the audience went wild over. “I Love You For Psychological Reasons” and “Let Me Tell You About My Operation” were incredibly well-played in a live setting. The first encore was Dr Worm and Istanbul, which are always nice to see, and the second encore was another surprise for me, with “Dead,” which was unexpected and an odd choice to close out the show, but I was into it anyway.

The banter, as always, was great. Linnell and Flans talked about the massive swarm of bugs on stage, Linnell mentioned how nice it was to be able to look up and see the moon while he was playing. Flansburgh complimented the fest itself, saying most fests were a “human spanking machine” of nightmares, but this one was very pleasant. At one point, everyone clapped along to Marty Beller’s kick drum, like it was “the beginning of any Alabama song,” according to Flans.

Overall, this was probably my favorite TMBG concert to date. Everyone was just in sync with the band, they were positive and in good spirits and super enthusiastic. Because it was an all-ages show, Flans was visibly straining to not swear, especially because the front row was full of very young kids. But to his credit, he didn’t slip once. Also, the presence of the kids was awesome and the band really seemed to enjoy it (to quote my gf: “I have never seen Linnell smile so much as he did seeing those kids dance and sing”). A big ol queen bee showed up around encore time, and at the end of the show, Marty ran back onstage and gave his drumsticks to a family of kids who had been front and center the entire time, singing along to everything both old and new. I have never seen kids lose their shit more than when they got those drumsticks. It was awesome. Highlight of the weekend. And I always forget that Marty Beller is literally one of the best rock drummers in the world right now.

I don’t play music because I’m a tortured person. I play music because I enjoy it. Because.. because it sounds really good. I’m no sadder than anyone else I know. I also think it’s not all true: there’s things about my songs that are sad, but that’s not the point of them. People overlook the happiness. It all depends on your point of view: something that makes you feel sad might make someone else feel happy.

Things I love the most about Park Jimin:

1. His passion for dancing. Jimin became my bias wrecker in BTS because of his dancing. He’s so cool on stage that I can’t even take my eyes off him.

2. His nose. He indeed has a tiny cute nose that I really want to pinch so bad.

3. His eye smile. Whenever he smiles, I felt like it was proved that angels exist.

4. His caring side for the members. They’ve mentioned this on ASC that Jimin is their stress reliever, and that he listens a lot to their concerns. I just find it amazing that he mixes well with everyone. The members also said that he’s too kind to them.

5. His expressive love for the members especially Jungkook. I’m not sure where I read this but I think the reason why he bothers Jungkook a lot is because he reminds him of his brother, who is also a 97 liner.
