and also tony's face

So about the Dreamcar show

Y’all, so much happened. 

In bullet form for readability/it’s 1AM and I have work in the morning because I’m an adult.

Pre-show

I got there like 45 minutes after doors opened because my days of lining up mega early for shows are over.

  • That’s a lie
  • I just had to work til 5 and it was raining all day so I didn’t wanna sit outside anyway

So I walk into the venue, and??? It’s so empty??? Like what the fuck??? I went to the bathroom, which is wayyyyyyy at the back and in the basement, I hate getting to it during packed shows because you CAN’T MOVE. That venue is not safe and there are not enough exits BUT ANYWAY.

When I got back upstairs I went to the merch table and bought a tank top

  • Warning if you see Dreamcar: it fits weirdly small???
  • But I love it
  • Also they didn’t do that thing I hate when bands jack up prices by like $10 because of the conversion rate.
  • It’s $35 online and I paid $35CAD.
  • Joke’s on you that’s only like $20US
  • Help our dollar is a fucking joke

Then I went to the stage and despite the opening band staring imminently I was only two people from the front???

Superet

I mean, I don’t know if I would go seeking out their music but they were really fun and had fantastic energy. The lead singer kept making eye contact with people in the front and it was slightly awkward but also endearing as hell. I kept getting distracted during their set because I decided most of the rest of the band looked like other people

  • The keyboard player looked so much like Jamison Covington from JamisonParker
  • Does anyone remember them? They had like one album in maybe 2005 and I loved it
  • But it’s so emo
  • Listening to it now is like??? Was my world ever that dark? Damn son.
  • The drummer looks just like a dude I went to high school with and played in Concert Band with
  • But it is not.
  • That dude is a DJ now though
  • The percussionist lowkey reminded me of what’s his face from Cabin in the Woods… the stoner one. 
  • Cabin in the Woods is a great movie

Dreamcar

I mean is it any surprise that they’re great live? All of them have been performing for so long so like… they know their shit. But there’s a lot happening all at once, it seems like. You’ll maybe see when I post my video of All Of The Dead Girls once it finishes uploading to YouTube. But I guess it’s partly because Tom, Adrian & Tony are so used to playing together but sometimes it’s like there’s their show happening and then there’s Davey being Davey around them and it is a lot.

  • Someone yelled “You’re good!” between songs and it got a good laugh out of Davey who was like, “I’m glad you think so???”
  • Like what an odd thing to say???
  • The other three have mastered the art of keeping Davey on topic
  • If he sounds like he’s about to go off on a tangent just start the next song it’s great
  • “If only that would work during interviews,” I’m sure Jade/Adam/Hunter is muttering to himself in the distance
  • They covered Don’t Change and it was amazing, I wanted to get a video of it but it was such a different (more upbeat) version I didn’t even clue in on time lmao
  • During the bridge of Kill For Candy, Davey and I shared a moment during the first “Let it dissolve on your tongue” and it was magical

Post-show

It rained literally the entire day here, so when I walked out of the venue and it wasn’t raining anymore I thought, y’know what, I’m gonna stick around for a bit, try my luck meeting these dudes. But only until 11:00. That’s my cut-off. I’m a responsible adult.

  • This is a lie
  • It’s cute that I believed it though
  • Also it was still raining but it was a very fine mist so it wasn’t that bad
  • This is also a lie it was terrible and my hair went to shit

There were like 25 people waiting, at the peak of it. After about an hour, some people had left so there were maybe 20 or so. Not bad at all, right? About half of those were No Doubt faithful, who seemed to be a very tight-knit group who all knew each other from various No Doubt events and trips and stuff. They were super nice and – bonus! – most of them couldn’t be fucked about Davey. But we did talk about the show, how awesome it was, and the fact that Davey is secretly jacked was mentioned – not even by me!!! And most of them agreed that a) it should’ve been a longer set and b) they should’ve covered some No Doubt because Davey singing I’m Just A Girl would be delightful.

  • Somebody made the joke that the guys snuck out past all of us and were probably on the public transit bus that went by
  • “But then they’ll get to Sherbourne station and get shanked.”
  • If you know Toronto at all you know that’s probably true
  • If there was anywhere in this city where a repeat of “what are you gonna do about it, pink shoes?” was gonna go down it’s motherfucking Sherbourne St.

Finally at around 11:15 or so, security & tour management came out and set up a barricade by the bus, telling us all to line up in twos. Ok cool. We did. 

  • Tom came out first and the orderly line went to shit because he just like, walked right out to chat and take pictures and sign autographs. I was trying to stay near the barricade and missed him entirely. Oops. 
  • Tony came out next and did the same thing, but actually on my side. I got a picture with him and he signed my ticket.
  •  Adrian stayed by the barricade but was very chatty with people. I also got a picture and autograph from him.
  • All of them seemed to like, know some of the No Doubt die hards who were there and I think that’s so cool, they’ve always seemed like this huge, untouchable band to me but they’re so cool with their fans

All three of them got on the bus, and because of the No Doubt fans stepping back I was pretty much at the barricade. The tour manager came back and asked who we were still waiting for so of course were like, obviously Davey. So then came the new instructions:

  • Single file lineup please (I ended up third, so cool)
  • No photos
  • This is 900% ok I’ve seen my pictures with Adrian & Tony I know what I look like
  • I’ve been standing in the rain for two hours I look like I live in garbage and a family of raccoons have been living in my hair for the winter
  • No hugs either
  • Also fine because who honestly wants to hug a bunch of damp strangers???
  • Just a chat, an autograph, and keep the line moving
  • Awesome, we’re grown ups, we can do this
  • Oh shit now I have to think of something to say

So then Davey appears in that long hoodie/cloak… thing… which I SHOULD have asked where he got it because I love it but obviously I think of things to say after the fact, so whatever. He was really chatty and smiling at everyone and it was so nice. The first two conversations happened as I was trying not to awkwardly stare at Davey. I’m not gonna be the one who makes it weird.

  • This is also a lie
  • I don’t think I made it weird though

When it was my turn, he asked how I was and I said “amazing” because I was, and the teenage version of me fainted then and there, she was not at all prepared for this moment.

I might’ve rattled off something about how his music, whether AFI or Blaqk Audio or Dreamcar or any other project, has been such a big part of my life for almost half my life now, so thank you and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without it

  • I don’t think that was weird
  • It was true, too
  • “Thank you, I hope that’s a good thing.”
  • I mean.
  • Obviously.
  • So I said it’s absolutely a good thing, thanked him again, and mentioned I would see him in like 3 weeks (!!!) for some AFI shows. 
  • ‘Cause y’know. He’ll remember.

And then I walked back to the subway and went home, 18-year-old me screaming internally.

tl;dr I saw Dreamcar, they were amazing, I finally met Davey Havok after 15 years.

@agenderraskel said “Then one day Bucky bites into his lollipop.”

Nooooooo!!! *shudders* Why? Why would you do that to me?? It’s not even the implication behind it that must have everyone in the vicinity wincing, it’s–okay, it’s silly but I’m still convinced my teeth are gonna break whenever I try biting into something hard like a lollipop and I run the other way every time I see someone do it because those poor teeth, why???

Here have another plot bunny that I’ll say I’ll get to maybe and then put off for a while because I’m distracted with university:

So Tony is just as much of a kisser as rdj and if he kisses you on the cheek or anywhere on the face then you know he’s accepted you and you’re part of the family

And after civil war Tony’s hanging out with the new crew and at this point he’s given kisses to basically everyone except tchalla and tchalla is like any day now now… It’ll happen any day now… And he’s doing stuff for Tony (and kinda leaning over a little bit so Tony can reach his cheek/forehead better which is a constant source of hilarity for anyone watching) but despite how grateful and how nice Tony is to him he never gets that damn kiss and he’s sad about it but he respects Tony’s wishes

But then Tony kisses carol and forget sad now he’s full blown upset because oh my god it’s been literally two weeks?? She saved your arse one time and she gets a kiss where’s my kiss damn it why aren’t I good enough so when Tony finally turns to him with this big smile and shining eyes he’s annoyed with him because flirting with someone can only take you so far, now Tony’s being mean to him (which is a fair enough assumption to make TBH)

So t'challas upset and now Tony’s upset as well because t'challas upset with him and eventually someone is like oh for fucks sake and explains to tchalla that tony is actually in love with him but was worried that tchalla would somehow figure it out if Tony was too physically affectionate (and would be disgusted by his feelings) so instead of explaining anything there he kept his distance and misunderstandings everywhere! (because they can both be kind of socially stunted at times)

so tchalla confronts tony and tony confirms what the person said and then they apologise to each other for hurting the others feelings and admit their feelings and they kiss on the lips and also on the cheek because FINALLY THATS WHAT TCHALLA BEEN WAITING FOR HELL YEAH

(Tony teases that tchalla is more excited about the cheek kiss than the lips kiss, tchalla just kisses him again in response)

anonymous asked:

Okay but BONUS for the soulmate AU (hi it's Ghost Anon ^^): ever since Tony got his names he's been wearing these two subtle black wrist bracers that turn into black/gold repulsor gauntlets with a hand motion, so when Bucky/Natasha get their names within a few days of each other, they have no idea whether Tony's gotten *theirs* yet. They think probably not because *why would he?* So they think that they have to woo him into even considering them, and that's part of why they're so bad at it. 1/3

Natasha corners Bucky a few days after she gets her names and just holds out her wrists to him with a raised eyebrow; shaking, he offers his left arm, where her and Tony’s names are stacked neatly above his hand. He presses his left wrist to hers and trails his fingers over Tony’s name on her right. “How could he ever accept *me*?” he mumbles to her, achingly resigned. “I don’t have a good track record, myself,” she mutters back. “But maybe we can try to show him how different it could be.” 2/3

(Neither of them think for a moment about starting a relationship themselves without Tony. “I don’t want–it wouldn’t feel right to me, without him,” Bucky confesses, meeting her eyes worriedly. “If it’s supposed to be the two'a you, it’s supposed to be *both*, not one.” She huffs a tiny laugh and takes his face in her hand, slowly, to kiss his cheek. “We’re in agreement, there,” she says. And thus begins the terribly awkward wooing quest of poor anxious and emotionally bruised Tony Stark. 3/3)


Welcome back, Ghost Anon!!! Damn, these headcanons just keep getting better :D I love how they never once consider just trying a relationship between the two of them! And I especially like how they are willing to work for this. That’s one of those tricky things about soulmate AUs in my opinion: it always seems so deterministic. Like you don’t have a choice at all, this is the person who’s perfect for you, so of course you’ll stay together–I can only imagine the kind of control issues I’d develop if I lived in such a world.

How do you think the relationship between Nat and Bucky develops though? I mean, just because they now have the names they aren’t immediately in love with each other right? So maybe it’s during their quest of wooing Tony that they begin to care for each other in a romantic way? And for added angst potential: although Tony refuses to acknowledge their flirting with him, he definitely notices the way they start looking at each other. Cue more freak-outs from our poor anxious and emotionally bruised Tony Stark :)

But also imagine the expression on Nat’s face the first time a terrified Tony who’s half-convinced she’s gonna rip his guts out through his nose kisses her on the cheek in thanks. Imagine the soft smile Bucky will wear, the first time Tony just hugs him in excitement. Imagine the way Nat’s and Bucky’s hands will link themselves together so naturally, the way the slip in and out of each other’s space with perfect ease. 

It’ll be worth it. 

digdipper09 replied to your postOmg dude I love your regency!AU!!!! Can you…

Oh sweetheart <:3 except when people mean Tony, Tony’s horse also swishes his face towards them because that’s his name.

Lmao I’m dying

“Hey, sweetheart,” Bucky says, dipping his head to give Tony a kiss, but then a startled “BLAGH” escapes his mouth.

Tony turns and has to cover his mouth to smother his giggles when he sees Sweetheart lipping at Bucky’s hair.

Steve doesn’t bothering smothering his laughs. He even points at Bucky to rub it in.

this movie fucked me up man but it had some gr8 animation. i wanted to draw some of the outfits so heres this..my fav part was when these 3 were like “can i speak to the manager” it was great

ok but single father steve and kindergarten teacher tony au

genius billionaire tony who mysteriously retired from the arms business after afghanistan and became a teacher instead. who everyone thought always hated kids but is secretly brilliant with them. who makes story time and learning to count seem like an adventure.

and of course steve’s kid adOREs tony. he thinks mr. s is the coolest thing on this planet and he talks about him non stop like he’s a combination between a wizard and an astronaut the way he talks about him and the class pet, this robot arm called dummy, and the awesome science classes mr. s does with them.

and there’s parent teacher interviews and steve finally gets to meet the illustrious mr. s and he’s charming and funny and way too handsome to be his kid’s teacher. and tony’s having an internal meltdown because rule one of his contract is that teachers aren’t allowed to date parents (tyvm prinicipal fury he can keep it in his pants ok he’s not like that anymore). but they still exchange numbers for purely professional purposes, emergencies and etc. so steve starts bringing coffee for tony in the mornings when he drops off the kid and the kid getting sick one day and tony calling to check up on him all worried.

i need the thing someone write the thing

ALSO THAT CIVIL WAR TRAILER

(AKA the reason I watched the SuperBowl)

I just cannot

Ok but people seem to forget Tony used to design guns. He knows them inside out. He knows them so well that in the middle of a fast paced fight with a super soldier he can literally take one apart with one hand. Dont ever think of pointing a gun at Tony Stark cause you’ll be left looking like an idiot with a trigger that does nothing

“Hey Barton, you want to come see this.”

Clint looks up at Tony’s voice, putting his bow and quiver on the rack before walking out of the large room. He could practically hear the slyness in Tony’s voice, and all he’s wondering is who the billionaire is spying on now. That man has no regard for privacy.

He walks into the security room, seeing Tony staring at one of the screens, grinning. Clint sighs. “Tony, if it’s Wanda and Vision again, I don’t want to-”

“It’s not.” Tony grins. “It’s better take a look.”

Rolling his eyes, Clint plops down into the chair next to Tony’s leaning over and looking at the screen. He’s surprised when he sees his younger sister, (y/n), walking down the hall with Pietro. He’s even more surprised when he sees they’re holding hands.

“What the-She’s only twenty-one!” Clint yells. Tony just smirks and crosses his arms as he leans back in his chair.

Clint’s eyes stay glued to the screen, mouth open as the two of you talk. Pietro’s obviously flirting, and he’s surprised to see that you’re buying it. His sister! At the end of the conversation, Pietro leans down and kisses you softly.

“What the-”

Tony cackles as Clint storms out of the room, watching on a separate monitor as he grabs his bow and quiver from the training room. Looking back at the monitor with (y/n) and Pietro on it, he sees an arrow fly into view. Pietro barely moves in time not to be hit. Clint’s curses ring over the speakers, making Tony grin as he chases Pietro down the hallway. You chase after your brother, cursing also.

Tony sighs, smile still on his face. “I should probably go get Cap.”
