and i am so so tired

a daydream: i wake up and remember i have no deadlines. my sheets are warm and i snuggle back down into the blankets, my best friend’s arm draped over me and his face pressed into my spine. our place smells like hazelnut coffee. we doze for a while. when we get up, there is a small christmas tree in the corner of the apartment. the lights are soft, not harsh like the overhead lights. all of our semester’s paperwork is sorted and put away, and the kitchen is clean. we bake cookies and put them in packages to give to family. we drink hot spiced rum and read books we chose to read for fun. there’s music playing that’s perfectly suited to our moods and we don’t have to change playlists ever. the world outside is peaceful, somehow, and we can rest.

*a cackle is heard in the distance*

DANCE MAJORS AU Part 1 (Part 1.5Part 2, Part 2.5, Part 3 finale) Hip-hop dancer Keith in a ponytail. Everyone is just so mesmerized when he dances on stage or even just during practice. Outside the dance studio, he’s a huge space nerd who’s got a secret crush on the contemporary ballet dancer next door who he may or may have not thought of asking out… next week or next month.

Quick confession: he leaves me breathless and renders me speechless all the time

List of Lance’s random talents:

  • He can do that thing where you flip a water bottle and it lands standing (his record is four water bottles at once)
  • He’s surprisingly good at throwing things into other things backwards (i.e throwing a pen behind him and having it land in a cup, throwing something into the fridge, throwing something into the garbage behind him, etc)
    • Lance every time he successfully completes a trick shot: Someone call an exorciser because I have been possessed by the ghost of Michael Jordan!
    • Hunk: Michael Jordan isn’t dead..
  • (To add to the above: Lance cannot apply this trick to basketball. He is awful at basketball.)
  • Is almost always correct when he guesses the time
  • An excellent shot with a rubber band
  • Always stops a microwave before the timer runs out and it can beep
  • Can spin/roll anything between his fingers (pens, coins, etc.)
  • Can solve a rubix cube like it’s nothing, even while blindfolded
