and other famous people

one of the reasons why I did straight white boy problems was because I wanted to grow as a person. This blog was my medium and I pushed myself to create, and to create, I had to expand my perspectives. 

In some ways, the straight white boy character that you became acquainted with was an exaggerated version of myself. Many of the problems were real life occurrences/observations/events that I drew from personal experience, but some problems also came from friends or were satirized to the point where the anecdote was unrealistic. Straight White Boy Problem #965 is honestly one of my personal favorites because this “problem” was actually a real situation in my life, and this situation could apply for several dudes that are questioning the meaning of masculinity.

The person that started at problem #1 is not the same person that finished with problem #1000. I was very much a self-entitled brat when I started this blog, but i have grown since then. I will be graduating college in december with a dual degree, leadership positions in student organizations, and the confidence that I can go out and do anything I set my mind to.

having a level of internet popularity (this blog finished with just over 164k followers) on a medium such as tumblr is very scary. one bad move, and you lose your rep - we have seen that with zubat, pizza, and most recently, sixpenceee. my advice to yall is to keep holding people in these positions accountable, but NEVER elevate internet famous people above other people. not everything i said over 3 years was 100% politically correct, but when i was in the wrong, i had fair and jovial conversations with people to figure out why i was in the wrong. no matter where you go in life, try to treat everybody fairly and equally - hopefully they will do the same to you. 

as for my name, you can call me alec. i did promise i’d tell you guys who i was after everything was said and done so there ya go.

thank you for following this blog and thank you for being a part of this experience. this blog was a giant, beautiful mistake that just kinda happened and im happy that yall enjoyed it as much as i did. i may do something in the future, i may not, but i leave this blog a changed and better person.

sincerely,

swbp

i want to take the train and just go. go to another city and explore it by myself with music playing in my ears. sit in a cafe, sip some coffee while reading a book and watch other people. take pictures of famous attractions. talk with the people who live there and learn what they think about life. i always have this strong desire to go and explore. a never ending wanderlust for life.

honestly, the lack of empathy that the culture on this website expresses towards famous people blows my mind.

there have been more than a handful of posts attempting to call out Ariana Grande for what happened in Manchester. Like nevermind that she was there and that she has to live with the fact that there are children who are no longer living because they came to see her in concert. Like never mind that she has the rest of a tour to do after her workplace was targeted by a terrorist attack!!!! 

like do y’all not realize that there was a terrorist attack at her damn workplace????? She was at work last night! That’s her job!!!!

idk it’s just exhausting… and it’s all written in that ~style~ of writing that you asses use when attempting to downplay someone’s pain and suffering. you know the one… the one that screams “this is said casually, but informed by the fact that i care way too much and i’m so morally better than everyone else it’s honestly laughable”

but like… sometimes… there isn’t a moral better when it comes to famous people. sometimes, they’re just fucking people living their damn lives! y’all have this sick obsession with proving yourselves morally better than others… and famous people are your favorite targets because their lives are pushed out there for public consumption so you feel like every single aspect of it is a way for you to prove your existence is somehow better than theirs.

it’s fucking disgusting and for y’all to use a terrorist attack at someone’s workplace to justify how you’re better than them because yOu wOUld HaVE hANdelED it ~beTTer~ just goes to show how disgusting and not better you all are.

do you think life is worth living even if you never achieve anything noteworthy?

given the statistical unlikeliness that any single human being will exist on earth at a particular moment in time, living is pretty noteworthy.

What celebrities are Fans of Green Day?

honestly i love hearing about other artists/famous people who are fans of green day it just makes my day. here are all the ones i can think off of the top of my head!!

- lady gaga, the first album she ever bought was dookie and she loved it so much that she would lick the pages of the booklet

- bruce springsteen considers green day to be one of his all time favourite bands. “green day, they make great records and they’re always thoughtful and intense and they have a band that plays great together.”

- mark zuckerberg, he even hired billie joe armstrong to play at his wedding

- brad pitt, tom felton, sean penn, shakira, alicia keys, snoop dogg, seth green, steve jobs, serena williams, matt skiba, pink, the members of muse, dave grohl, daniel radcliffe, david letterman, lars ulrich, conan o'brien, stephen colbert, etc. have all either mentioned in interview that they love green day or have been spotted at their concerts in the past

- weezer, against me!, blink-182, my chemical romance, all time low, fall out boy, simple plan, the 1975, yellowcard, paramore, new found glory and other artists have all cited green day as being a major influence to their music

- more on weezer. they’ve done a few covers of green day including worry rock and brain stew. they also have a lyrics mentioning green day in one of their songs called el scorcho, “i asked you to go to the green day concert/you said you never heard of them.”

- lil wayne is a fan as well, he even made a reference to them in one of his songs, “she’s askin’ do you have the time to listen to me whine”

- ed sheeran, he saw green day when he was 10 at wembley stadium and was the very back of the stadium and i think he talked about how disappointed he was that green day didn’t (and couldn’t) pick him to go onstage

- matt healy from the 1975 was picked to go onstage with green day and play bass when he was 13 and it actually inspired him to be in a band

- other punk bands such as bad religion, dead kennedys, nofx, anti-flag, rancid etc. are all supportive of green day, have gone to their shows, played together, and many are good friends with the band despite green day’s controversial reputation in the punk community

there are definitely more but i tried covering all the ones that i could think of or could find through 2 minutes of googling!! hope this answers your question. feel free to add any that i forgot ✨

Jean-Paul Sarte’s famous quote from Being and Nothingness doesn’t mean what most people think it means.

“Sartre’s point was never that other people make your life hell. He was trying to tinker with the philosophical concept of "being for others,” which holds that people function as mirrors of our psychological understanding of ourselves. Chad the giant douche has been a douche his entire life, but his douchiness is reflected by other people’s reactions to him. The more people he interacts with, the more of his faults he will be forced to recognize via their actions.“

Cow Chop GTA/FAKE AU

Fake Chop - new group of misfits that only recently sprung in los santos, they are famous for unconventional forms of committing crimes like using 50 gallons of lube to rob a bank. Even though they seem ridiculous they are very effective and have rising respect from the other crews. The are extremely famous for weird weapons and punishment for people that wronged them such as: a dildo, body bag torture, self- waterboarding, burning plastic and their weird fixation on force feeding people. They are truly chaotic evil and the crews of los santos must be weary of these wild cards.

Brett - The Mastermind. He is a lot behind the scenes, very low profile and has good reputation in los santos. He helps the gang by keeping tabs on the happenings in los santos and keeping the police off their scent. Police believe he is a very respectable man with a small business.

James - The Bruiser. Really good at street fighting and has basic knowledge of many weapons, he can get into random fights with every other gang in los santos. Because of Aleks and him have experience with heists and murder sprees both of the have excellent manipulation skills. He can cross dress to get what he want and may act harmless but will beat you up.

Aleks - The Russian. He will not hesitate to kill you, he has good leadership and he is an expert marksman using guns, very good at long range. He has a deep care for his crew and will protect them at all costs. Can seem intimidating when meeting him. Fastest runner that he can out run cops in cars.

Aleks and James duo are well known by the police, the police has a lot of history on them and all their previous crimes.

Joe - The Heart. He keeps everyone from killing each other, he isn’t really good in fighting but he can go anywhere they need him to be because he is good at blending in and he has a very smol build. He trains the crews dogs he can make them furious attack dogs in a snap.

Trevor - The Rookie. Even thought he know the ins and out of being in a gang he still is a young grasshopper, He is generally for intimidating people with his size. He has the very important responsibility of the equipment and the arsenal, he keeps the safehouses safe by being the one on guard. Joe and him are really good at disguising theirselves but rather than blending in he is usually the distraction.

Anna - The Lancer. She sees the train wreck that they call a crew and sometimes wonder if her old job will take her back. She is a jack of all trades, so if anyone in the crew is injured or captured she can temporarily take their place for a while. She mostly works with Asher and Lindsey behind the scenes, hacking and researching, she is good for penetrating enemy forces because they won’t suspect anything from a small woman.

Asher - The Eye. He has control of all of los santos’ cameras and he helps the crew by being the eye in the sky, he is on watch when the have a gig. Sometime they experiment on him but every one in the crew gets experimented on.

Lindsey - The Informant. She is where the information are from, she is support like when the need a quick getaway, gets things they need immediately or emergency medic. She helps manage the crew’s ties to other gangs in the los santos area, to keep other gangs from waging war against them.

Because of the recent rise of Fake Chop I can finally set my ideas freeeee

anonymous asked:

Please explain to my friend why malec is in love. Trying to prove a point. Love your blog btw ❤️

hey anon’s friend !!! i hope this is enlightening:

The little things:

  • They give each other little gifts. See: the omamori charm Alec got for Magnus when they were in Japan 
  • They constantly want to impress each other and do The Most™️ to make the other happy. For example, Magnus name dropping famous people and complimenting Alec a lot. Also, their second date where Magnus literally takes him portalling around the world. Let’s not forget Alec is always shirtless around Magnus trying to impress him.
  • They always boost the other up. See: “Magnus is quite magical” and “We have a Very Capable warlock for that.” 
  • They defend each other, no matter what. Like literally they first meet when Alec helps Magnus beat a circle member.
  • They’re always such soft beans around each other. Magnus is so gentle with Alec and so smiley. Same goes for Alec !! *war flashbacks to Alec blushing around Magnus*

The bigger, more important things:

  • Lets go back to the dark times when Alec was supposed to marry Lydia shall we? Magnus didn’t give up on him and told him multiple times that he’s dooming himself to a lonely, loveless marriage(“You’ll be lonely all your life, and so will she. Neither of you deserve it. And I don’t either.”). He saw that Alec was unhappy with the marriage and made sure Alec knew that he didn’t have to marry some girl he would never love just to restore his family’s honour (which was ruined by his own parents so). He fought for him. The line “Where’s the honour in a lie? What about love?” comes to mind. Magnus even showed up to the wedding, risking not only his place in the institute as a respected ally, but also his reputation. He stands there, with all his emotions out in front of everyone and just lets his eyes do the talking.
  • Alec sees this and just the sight of Magnus stops him in his tracks. In front of everyone, he walks back down the aisle and kisses Magnus like his life depends on it. He knows how the community around him will react, but for once he puts Magnus before his duty and his family’s messed up honour.
  • Lets not forget Magnus’ iconic line “For almost a century I’ve closed myself off to feeling anything, for man or woman. You’ve unlocked something in me.” This line is so important to me because here’s the thing. It’s extremely hard to open up to someone. But usually when you love someone, you feel safe opening up to them. I think that’s why Magnus feels so safe exposing emotions and memories he’s been hiding for so long to Alec. He talks about how he used to be suicidal, he talks about how Camille turned abusive, he even talks about how Alec himself makes him feel. Magnus loves Alec enough to unleash memories that hurt him terribly.
  • Next !!! They’re always checking up on each other/each other’s wellbeing. For example, after Magnus heals Luke, Alec cleans up and asks Magnus if he’s okay. After Alec is possessed and kills Jocelyn, he goes to Magnus’ balcony and Magnus comforts him and makes sure he understands that he’s not to blame. Let’s not forget Magnus spending days by Alec’s side trying to keep him alive.
  • Speaking of which, when it seems like Alec dies, did you notice Magnus’ face? He looked absolutely destroyed, like his heart had been ripped out of his chest. After days of trying, after days of begging Alec to wake up saying things like “I’m all out of answers” and even trying a kiss, he has to watch him “die” and Magnus just looks, ruined. He looks about ready to crumple onto the floor. That is the face of someone who lost a man he loves more than anything.
  • Also, they would do anything for each other. See: Magnus defying Victor Aldertree in a time where downworlders aren’t even allowed in the institute. Also, Alec shooting Azazel for “Magnus” even though he knew it was a risk and he could get him angry and suffer is an example here.
  • No matter what, they always try as hard as possible to have good communication. They know it’s important and they put everything aside to communicate properly. See: “When things get hard, don’t push me away” and “I won’t.”
  • To me, loving someone means you’d put your pride aside for them. That’s what these two always do. Alec puts his pride aside to apologise multiple times and Magnus puts his pride aside to show Alec all of his emotions in the beginning of their relationship.
  • They feel safe with each other. For example, “You shouldn’t be out alone, it’s not safe” and “I’m not alone, I’m with you, The High Warlock of Brooklyn.” It takes a lot too feel like you’re safe with someone, like they could protect you. Usually, I only feel safe with the people I love.
  • Lets not forget that in times of danger and crisis the first person they think about is the other. When Jace accidentally activated the soul sword, Alec went mad trying to find Magnus. he was worried out of his mind and so was Magnus. They both couldn’t stand the thought of losing the other. And the relief on their faces when they found each other was so obvious.
  • Speaking of which !! That leads me to my last point !! They literally said I love you !! And they’ve said it multiple times since. They love each other and its beautiful.
What would NCT U be like jealous?

MASTERLIST

I thought this was requested but it wasn’t lol oh well. Enjoy.


Taeil:

The type to just sit and glare. He wouldn’t be the type to say anything, not just when he’s jealous, but in general too. Whenever you were with his members, he wouldn’t mind though - he trusted you and he trusted him. But if you were with anyone he was unfamiliar with or didn’t trust, he’d watched from afar staring at him with glazing, cold eyes. Eventually you spot his behaviour, and leave them walking towards Taeil and wrapping him into a tight hug. “You don’t need to worry about me Taeil, I’m all yours”, you’d reassure him, smoothing out the frown lines between his eyebrows.


Taeyong:

Originally posted by exoequalsmylife

Taeyong wouldn’t get jealous often or easily. He knew he was yours and you were his; your relationship would be very deep, sincere and genuine - neither of you would be willing to satisfy such a bond. There would be the rare occasion where he’d turn very sour, bitter and jealous. Usually, if he was already quite upset or self conscious as it was, seeing you with any man but him, would make him very jealous. He’d immediately storm up to you, grabbing you by the arm and pulling you away from the conversation, despite your protests. Pulling you into another room, he’d enclose you into a tight hug and whispering into your neck to never leave him.


Doyoung:

Originally posted by nctinfo

As a boyfriend, Doyoung would be more than delighted to show you off to everyone and would basically be your biggest fan (even if you weren’t famous or an idol or anything) He liked having other people stare at you with admiration, with the full satisfaction of knowing that yes, they could look, but no, they couldn’t have you. Doyoung would get jealous if you didn’t tell him about your plans with one of your male friends; it would worry him a bit. He’d turn very clingy, first pouting and swinging your hands between you and him, hoping his cuteness would stop you from going. It’d go through many stages of aegyo and kisses and complaints until he’d be literally clinging to your leg, begging you not to go with tears in his eyes at this point.


Ten:

Originally posted by tenchittaphonsnose

Ten would be the type to stick to your side and be very shady towards the male in questions. Threading his fingers through yours, he’d rest your head onto his shoulder, smirking at your friend who furrowed their eyebrows slightly. Whenever he (your friend) said anything, Ten would fake laugh and say something sarcastic in return. Expect many eye rolls and heavy sighs from Ten too. Eventually he would be way too rude for your liking, and you’d have to pull him away and lecture him - but this would only make him grin since he got what he wanted.


Jaehyun:

Originally posted by y-ta

Jaehyun would immediately go silent and walk away angrily if ever he was jealous. He knew that if he stayed there any longer, he’d only do or say something he’d later regret. Knowing fully well that you felt his presence leave, he’d continue the silent treatment not even looking at you when you came over to comfort him. Eventually he’d break and rant at you, which was surprising for you since Jaehyun was rarely open and blunt with his feelings.


Mark:

Originally posted by monoka

Mark would try to hide his jealousy. He wouldn’t want his feelings to affect anyway; he’d think he was being unreasonable and would fight with his conscious as to what to do. Pushing the feelings back, he’d put a smile on and pretend things were okay. However, as time goes on, his smile would falter and his heart would drop when he saw you made no attempt to pay attention to him instead. He’d end up putting up with it though, until afterwards where you’d apologise and comfort him for being so insensitive towards him.

Secret Love Song - A Harry Styles Mini Series (Part 1)

The sound of your phone ringing woke you up causing you to groan. You reached over to pick it up from the nightstand and saw that it was your boss. You sighed sitting up in bed and sliding to answer your phone.

“Hello?” You said quietly.

“Y/N! Thank god! Okay, are you available this morning?” She asked.

“Uh… yeah, why?” You asked.

“Madison is sick and she had an interview at BBC Radio scheduled and I need you to take her place,” she said.

“Sure, I can do it. What time?” You asked looking over at your clock.

“Well, you have to be there in an hour,” she said.

Seriously? How did she expect you to get ready, drive there, and be prepared for the interview in less than an hour?

“Okay, I’ll be there,” you said.

“Thank you!! This is such a huge interview for us, so I’m so glad we don’t have to cancel it. I owe you big time!” She said.

You ended the call and then quickly got out of bed and went into your closet. You through on some black jeans, a nice top and a blazer along with some heels before quickly throwing your hair in a bun and putting on a bit of makeup.

Once you were ready to go, you grabbed your bag and notebook and headed out the door.

**

You arrived at the studio and showed your press pass. Your boss sent you an email with all the information and questions that Madison had prepared, so once you checked in you sat down and scanned over everything.

Your face flushed when you saw the name of who you would be interviewing.

Harry Styles.

Shit.

Freaking out was an understatement at this point. You were used to interviewing celebrities and other semi-famous people, but this was the first time you were interviewing someone of this caliber and someone you were a fan of.

If you weren’ t already nervous, you definitely were now and after reading Madison’s question, you knew that you couldn’t ask these.

You checked the time and saw that you had about fifteen minutes before your scheduled time, so you quickly took out your notebook and started writing down different questions.

This interview was supposed to be about his new single and album as a solo artist, so all the questions you were writing down were revolved around that.

“Y/N?” Harry’s PR came said walking over to you.

“Hi, yes,” you said standing up and holding out your hand.

“Hey, we’re ready for you, now,” she said.

“Great,” you said grabbing your things and following her into the room.

With each step you took, your nerves started to take over. You were starting to feel sick yourself, but it was much too late to turn around and go the other way.

Plus, you wouldn’t want to make a bad impression by leaving and being unprofessional.

She opened the door and let you walk in before her. When you walked into the room, you saw Harry standing over to the side talking with a few people and drinking some water.

“You can just have a seat right over there,” she told you pointing to one of the chairs in the middle of the room.

You nodded and went over to the first chair. You set your bag down and took out your notebook and favorite pen. You also grabbed your phone and set it up to record the interview in case you missed a few things while you were taking notes.

You were just getting everything set up when you felt someone walking up behind you. You turned around and saw Harry Styles standing there with a smile on his face and his hand stretched out.

“Hello, I’m Harry,” he smiled.

“Hi, I’m Y/N,” you said. “I’m from “Y/Magazine/N.”

“Nice to meet you. I’m ready whenever you’re ready,” he said.

“Oh, I’m just about set up, so if you want to just have a seat or something… that’s fine,” you told him.

“I’m just going to grab some water, would you like one?” He asked.

“S-Sure, Yeah, if you don’t mind,” you said.

“Course not,” he smiled before walking back over to the table of food and drinks to grab two bottles of water.

When he came back, you took the water bottle from him and your hands gently touched causing your face to blush fifty shades of red.

You cleared your throat and sat down in your chair while Harry sat in his in front of you.

“Okay, I’m just going to press record on here,” you say mostly to yourself and then you look up at Harry. “So, Harry, first I want to say thank you for coming today.”

“No problem, thank you for having me,” he smiled.

“Let’s start off with how’s your day going so far?” You asked.

“It’s going great. A little nerve wracking, but for the most part it’s been amazing,” he said. “What about you? How’s your day?”

“It’s going pretty well,” you nod with a smile. “Now, for all the people who might not know about this, why don’t you tell us a little bit about your new single that’s coming out in a few days.”

“Well, it’s coming out April 7th and it’s called Sign Of The Times. I’m really looking to it finally coming out. I’ve been waiting for this time for awhile now and now that’s its finally time, I can’t wait for everyone to hear it,” he answered.

“I’m sure everyone is just as excited if not more to hear it as well,” you smiled.

“Would you like to hear it?” He asked.

“Sure, if that’s okay,” You said.

“Of course it’s okay, I want to know what you think about it and I’m sure everyone will want to know about it in the interview too,” he smiled.

“True,” you nodded.

Harry reached into his pocket and pulled out his phone. He typed in his password and scrolled through before you start to hear music filling the air of the room.

Once the final note of the song played out, Harry looked over at you. His eyes were trying to meet with yours, but they were having a hard time probably from the nerves of waiting on your opinion.

“Wow. That was really good,” you smiled. “I mean wow, I’m speechless.”

“I’m going to take that as a good sign,” he smiled.

You nodded with a laugh.

About an hour later, your time was up. You stood up and held out your hand.

“Thanks again. It was really nice meeting you and your song is really beautiful. Congratulations,” you smiled to him.

“Thank you, it means a lot that you enjoyed it,” he smiled. “And it was very nice to meet you.”

“Well, I should better get going. I’m sure you have more interviews to do,” you said packing up your things.

“Actually, you were my last one of the day,” he smiled. “Grimmy and I were just about to head out for some lunch.”

“Oh, well, I don’t want to keep you from that either, so I’ll be out in a bit,” you said.

“This might be a bit forward, but do you have any lunch plans?” He asked.

“I’ll probably just grab something nearby,” you shrugged.

“Would you want to join us for lunch?” Harry suggested.

That came out of the fucking blue.

“Um, I don’t know if that’s professional,” you blushed. “I mean, I would love too, but I don't’ know how my boss would look at that since you’re technically a client.”

“Oh, right, yeah I didn’t even think of that,” he blushed running his hand through his hair.

“Sorry,” you sighed.

“No, no, I understand,” he said.

“What if I invited you?” Nick said from the other side of the room. “I’m not your client, so if I invited you out to lunch and Harry just happened to be there… “ he suggested.

“He makes a valid point,” Harry smirked.

“That he does, but I would hate to intrude on your plans though,” you said putting your bag over your shoulder.

“It’s fine really, I don’t mind and it’s obvious that Harry doesn’t mind,” Nick smirked putting his arm around his shoulder.

You looked at the time before looking up at them. “Well, I guess I do need to eat at some point today, right?” You laughed.

“Exactly!” Nick said. “We’re going to a place just down the street, you’re more than welcome to walk with us.”

“Sure, sounds great,” you said.

**

The walk to the restaurant was a little awkward, mostly because of you. You couldn’t believe that you were going out to lunch with Harry Styles right now and that he was the one who asked.  

Maybe he was just being polite and after the lunch, he wouldn’t want anything else to do with you. Or maybe he was hoping you would write a better article about him if he took you out to lunch? 

Honestly, whatever the reason didn’t matter in that moment because you just needed to focus on not making yourself seem like an idiot. 

When you get to the restaurant, Harry opens the door and holds it open for you. 

“Thanks,” you smiled walking through the doorway. 

“No problem,” he said. 

You all sit down at a table and look over the menu before ordering. The waitress takes your menus and you take a sip of your water. 

“So, Y/N, since you spent the last hour talking about Harry, why don’t you spend some time to talk about yourself?” Nick said looking over at you. 

“Oh, no, I don’t really like talking about myself.” you said shaking your head. 

“Neither do I,” Harry laughed. 

You giggled. “Well, if I have to, why don’t you two ask me questions and I’ll answer them. Let me be the interviewee for once,” 

“We can do that,” Nick smirked. 

“How long have you been a journalist?” Harry asked. 

“Professionally, almost four years,” you answered. 

“Wow, so what made you want to be in journalism?” He asked. 

“I’ve always enjoyed writing since I was younger and I worked for school newspapers, and when it came to University, journalism was a better degree option than a creative writing one,” you shrugged. 

“Do you not enjoy being a journalist?” Nick asked. 

“It’s not exactly that. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love being able to do what I do, but despite popular belief interviewing celebrities wasn’ t exactly the type of journalism I wanted to get into. No offense,” you coughed. 

“None taken,” Harry says. “What type of journalism would prefer?” 

“I guess one that has a bit more meaning, like traveling the world and helping others while writing about my experiences there and things like that,” you blushed. 

“Why haven’t you tried that?” Harry asked. 

“Because unfortunately, that type of journalism doesn’t exactly pay the bills. When I was in university, I got the internship at the magazine company I’m working with now, there aren’t many traveling journalist jobs available,” you shrugged. 

“Well, don’t give up on that, hopefully, one day you’ll be able to do it,” Harry smiled over at you. 

“I hope so,” you smiled. 

**

After you all finished eating lunch, you get out your wallet to pay, but Harry puts his hand over yours. 

“Don’t worry about it,” Harry said. 

“Are you sure?” You said. 

“Yeah, it’s fine,” he said. “But if anyone asks, he paid for it.” Harry nodded over to Nick with a smirk. 

You sighed but nodded with a laugh. Once the ticket was paid for, you all head out to leave. You walk back to the studio, where your car is, which happens to be parked right next to Harry’s. 

Nick had already gone back inside the studio, so it was just you and Harry standing near your cars. 

“Just so you know, I don’t usually do this,” Harry said leaning up against his car. 

“Do what?” You asked confused. 

“Go to lunch with a journalist, who interviewed me,” he said. “And I’m not saying that you would, but our lunch and now is completely off the record right?” 

“Of course, I would never do something that,” you said quickly. 

“I know, I just wanted to make sure,” he smiled. “And I know this might be a bit of an issue for you, but I really want to see you again.” 

“You do?” you said. “For like an interview?” 

“No, I mean just to hang out again, maybe dinner next time?” He asked. 

“Oh, um, I don’t know. I would like to, but like I said earlier…” you said. 

“I understand,” he sighed kicking his boot against the pavement of the parking lot. 

You bit the inside of your cheek. “How about this? We could exchange numbers and keep in touch?” You suggested. “But I don’t know about going out in public…” 

Harry looked up at you smiling. “I think I can handle that.” 

He handed you his phone and you added yourself into his contacts and he did the same in yours before you exchanged them back. 

“Well, I better get to the office so I can start typing up your article,” you said. 

“I can’t wait to read it,” he smiled. 

“Maybe I’ll send you a copy before it gets published,” you smirked. 

“I’ll be looking forward to it,” he said. 

“Have a nice rest of the day, Harry,” you smiled with a wave. 

“See you around, Y/N,” Harry said before the two of you got into your own cars. 

He motioned for you to pull out first, so you did and drove straight to your office with the biggest smile on your face. While Harry drove to his house, wearing a matching smile. 

another weird thing about living in New York is that sometimes you’ll be getting your hair cut, and it will turn out that the guy getting his hair cut next to you is Trevor Noah’s personal makeup artist. that guy will then spend 30 minutes telling you about what an asshole Trevor Noah is to everybody who works for him, and how he’s only nice to other famous people, but one time a little old lady fell down in front of him and Trevor Noah ignored her to keep texting but Kate Winslet saw the whole thing and marched over and helped the old lady and told Trevor Noah he was some kind of an asshole.

and then your hairdresser will be like “oh yeah, that sounds just like her. I did Kate’s hair a couple of times when I was working on the Today show, she was such an angel.”

like what the fuck, I’m just getting my roots done and then there’s an imbroglio of firsthand accounts of celebrity fuckery

idol au character rundown

so if you havent heard, @mooksmookin created an amazing idol au which they allowed me to write! (you can see their explanation here!) so i thought it was about time to introduce the characters to the au!!! without further ado, here are the stars of the show~

Oikawa Tooru

  • the leader and main vocalist of the famous boy group seij-OH!
  • signed to the company HQ entertainment at 13, oikawa grew up as a child actor and singing in musicals, deciding that singing and producing was what he wanted to pursue.
  • widely regarded as the group’s prettiest member and a visual, oikawa is sought after for modelling, promotions, and acting. however, oikawa turns each opportunity down unless the other members accompany him.

Iwaizumi Hajime

  • rapper and supporting vocalist for the group seij-OH! with a voice rough, sensual and honey sweet.
  • signed around the same time as oikawa, his childhood friend. iwaizumi always supported oikawa, but made a point of asserting himself and chasing after the goal of making music.
  • can play guitar, and often writes the guitar licks, bass lines, and chord progressions for the music. the fans die whenever he plays guitar, and frankly, die whenever they get to see his biceps.

Matsukawa Issei

  • lead rapper of the group seij-OH!
  • was signed at the age of fourteen after repeatedly sending demo tracks of his garageband music to HQ.
  • the fans know him as “the bad boy with a soft heart,” which earns snickers and laughs from the other members. really doesn’t give a shit about PR and often speaks his mind and doesn’t tone down his sarcastic and lewd humour.

Hanamaki Takahiro

  • lead dancer and supporting vocalist of the group seij-OH! choreographs all of seij-OH’s dances
  • has been studying dance since age six, taking different styles including, but not limited to: jazz, contemporary, modern, several types of ballet, lyrical, tap, and hiphop. was signed to HQ at age twelve but only started training to become an idol at age fourteen.
  • he and Matsukawa met as trainees when Hanamaki was asked to fix his dancing form. they’ve been inseparable ever since, and have been informally announced to be dating.

Hinata Shouyou

  • at 20 years old, he’s confused as to where his life is going until he meets his idols, the legendary boyband seij-OH and creates a friendship with the members. his life spirals from fanboy to friend, and with it, romantic~ feelings begin to form
  • through his best friend kenma’s short film, hinata lands a modelling job via Kuroo Tetsurou Models, skyrocketing his own fame and earning him his own chance at the limelight

Kozume Kenma

  • 21 years old, and Hinata’s best friend. they met in high school through the internet, and eventually ended up living together when they moved to kyoto for university.
  • a film major and filmmaker, creating haunting, creepy, and visually stunning short films. has a decent presence in the indie filmmaker community, but struggles to find actors within his price range

Kuroo Tetsurou

  • a 22 year old acting/modelling agent, who was born into the modelling scene quite literally, with famous parents. never having sought out stardom himself, kuroo prefers to pull at the strings and makes his living making other people famous.
  • he was contacted by kenma, looking for actors, but they couldn’t work out a deal. later, kuroo goes to a film festival where kenma is featured and watches his film, taking special interest in the lead actor used- none other than hinata shouyou himself. it takes a little persuading, but he’s able to sign hinata and whisk him away to a career where he naturally excels .
  • kenma is stubborn and tries to ignore kuroo. it doesnt always work

anyways i love this au so so much it has so many shennanigans and so much angst !!! pls feel free to message me or mooks with questions about it and i promise to have the first chapter up soon ~

supporting characters under the cut!!!!!!

What would NCT 127 be like jealous?

MASTERLIST

Anon: (I’m not entirely sure how to phrase this) How would NCT 127 and NCT Dream act when they get jealous because another member is getting close to the S/O? Please? 😍😍Thanks!

I’ve copied and pasted the members who are also in NCT U here, as I’ve done this before for NCT U. Hopefully you’ll like this! Also, I know you asked how they would be if they were jealous over another member, but I honestly don’t think a member would do that to another so ya❤️❤️❤️

Also Imma be posting In bed with… Yuta later on tonight so please anticipate that too!😇


Taeil:

Originally posted by nctmark

The type to just sit and glare. He wouldn’t be the type to say anything, not just when he’s jealous, but in general too. Whenever you were with his members, he wouldn’t mind though - he trusted you and he trusted him. But if you were with anyone he was unfamiliar with or didn’t trust, he’d watched from afar staring at him with glazing, cold eyes. Eventually you spot his behaviour, and leave them walking towards Taeil and wrapping him into a tight hug. “You don’t need to worry about me Taeil, I’m all yours”, you’d reassure him, smoothing out the frown lines between his eyebrows.


Johnny:

Originally posted by neotechs

Johnny wouldn’t get jealous often or easily. I think he’s very self-assured and confident in himself; he’d be able to read you easily and know whether you meant to make him jealous or not. However, if ever he was jealous, he’d be very blunt and direct, even going as far as insulting you and basically making you feel like crap. He didn’t want to hurt you, despite being fully aware of his actions; he just wanted you to feel the same way as he did. After realising how offended and crap you felt from his comments, he’d immediately try making it up to you by making a fool of himself - and, of course, it’d work.


Taeyong:

Originally posted by neotechs

Taeyong wouldn’t get jealous often or easily. He knew he was yours and you were his; your relationship would be very deep, sincere and genuine - neither of you would be willing to satisfy such a bond. There would be the rare occasion where he’d turn very sour, bitter and jealous. Usually, if he was already quite upset or self conscious as it was, seeing you with any man but him, would make him very jealous. He’d immediately storm up to you, grabbing you by the arm and pulling you away from the conversation, despite your protests. Pulling you into another room, he’d enclose you into a tight hug and whispering into your neck to never leave him.


Yuta:

Originally posted by nctuhohahyes

Yuta would be so scary and mad when he’s jealous. He’d never physically hurt you, god no, and he’d never try to intimidate you. But if he was jealous, he’d definitely make sure you knew. It’d start off with glares and the rolling of the eyes, moving onto blanking you until eventually he’d just burst and start raising his voice. He’d rant for a while, using his hands and arms widely, throwing them up into the air frustratingly. With you not uttering a word or saying anything that could just provoke him into ranting again, he’d eventually calm down, sitting down heavily next to you head in his hands. He’d apologise and be very sympathetic after you explained thing to him and reassured him you weren’t planning to leave.


Doyoung:

Originally posted by johnnyseo-ismylife

As a boyfriend, Doyoung would be more than delighted to show you off to everyone and would basically be your biggest fan (even if you weren’t famous or an idol or anything) He liked having other people stare at you with admiration, with the full satisfaction of knowing that yes, they could look, but no, they couldn’t have you. Doyoung would get jealous if you didn’t tell him about your plans with one of your male friends; it would worry him a bit. He’d turn very clingy, first pouting and swinging your hands between you and him, hoping his cuteness would stop you from going. It’d go through many stages of aegyo and kisses and complaints until he’d be literally clinging to your leg, begging you not to go with tears in his eyes at this point.


Jaehyun:

Originally posted by nctuhohahyes

Jaehyun would immediately go silent and walk away angrily if ever he was jealous. He knew that if he stayed there any longer, he’d only do or say something he’d later regret. Knowing fully well that you felt his presence leave, he’d continue the silent treatment not even looking at you when you came over to comfort him. Eventually he’d break and rant at you, which was surprising for you since Jaehyun was rarely open and blunt with his feelings.


WinWin:

Originally posted by nakamotens

Expect a very clingy and whiney Sicheng. He wouldn’t hold back, which would be surprising as usually, he’d be very awkward and shy with any PDA or skinship. But even one look from a gu directed towards you, and he’d be on your case, wrapping his arms around you and smiling cutely. It’d all be very secretive and subtle because this is winwin lmao but if the situation got any worse for him, he’d move onto being even more clingy, trying to distract you and pull away. Only afterwards would you realise what he was trying to do.


Mark:

Originally posted by kingminhyung

Mark would try to hide his jealousy. He wouldn’t want his feelings to affect anyway; he’d think he was being unreasonable and would fight with his conscious as to what to do. Pushing the feelings back, he’d put a smile on and pretend things were okay. However, as time goes on, his smile would falter and his heart would drop when he saw you made no attempt to pay attention to him instead. He’d end up putting up with it though, until afterwards where you’d apologise and comfort him for being so insensitive towards him.


Haechan:

Originally posted by ithastobemoontaeil

Although Haechan is more of an adult than a child, when he’s jealous he’d automatically go into “child-mood”. There’d be a lot of pouts and frowns on his behalf, but he wouldn’t try to pull you away from the prying eyes or stop it from getting worse. He’d wait until you confronted him about his odd behaviour, and only then, would he start acting mature. Quietly, he’d say what was up and how he was feeling, but the situation would be very stiff and awkward, even after you had resolved things. But within a few days, normal life would return and the situation wouldn’t be brought up again.

anonymous asked:

Any fics where Jongin is like a playboy but has some control over kyungsoo? Like he won't allow kyungsoo to date anyone or something like that? I know this is typical ask but I really need new fics of this kind <3

SO actually this list was super hard. I don’t know a lot where Jongin won’t allow Kyungsoo to do things because usually in playboy stories Kyungsoo is a pushover and doesn’t date on his own, so I did what I could. Because I was unhappy with this list I added regular playboy Jongin that I haven’t recced yet at the bottom for fun. I hope they work…. also, you can find old playboy lists here and here

Somebody’s Heartbreak: Ongoing. Yea! This story is back and I am happy, even though it only kind of fits. But Jongin has all kinds of power over getting Kyungsoo to do whatever he wants until Kyungsoo gets fed up

Heteroflexible: Ongoing (kind of this) Jongin is a porn star who meets Kyungsoo when he is doing something reckless, and then they continue to see each other in an open setting

Migrane: Complete 3 chapters. They are friends with benefits and Jongin does whatever he wants but he doesn’t like it when Kyungsoo starts talking to someone else

Trust Me Your Heart: Complete 10 chapters. Jongin uses Kyungsoo to break up with people as his pretend boyfriend

Hiraeth: one shot. They are in a relationship but Jongin is famous and playing a lot with other people and Kyungsoo is over it

Try: Complete 2 chapters. Jongin doesn’t like relationships and doesn’t want to be with Kyungsoo, but doesn’t want anyone else to be either

Playing Into The Game: One shot. nonau. they are hooking up and then Jongin starts hooking up with someone else and still wants Kyungsoo to only be with him (not so much playboy)

What’s Hers is Mine: one shot. not playboy Jongin but he has a girlfriend and is sleeping with Kyungsoo (his best friend) on the side and is a little possessive over him

Regular Playboy Jongin Stories 

drown all the lovers: Ongoing. Everyone warns Kyungsoo about Jongin, but he doesn’t listen

Smells Like Teen Spirit: Complete 8 chapters. Kyungsoo gets paired up for a project with a very promiscuous Jongin, who flirts with him but Kyungsoo knows he is too unpopular to really have a chance (v. well written)

Dreamwalking: ongoing. they meet after a one night stand and Jongin is a model with a lot of problems and Kyungsoo starts helping him out

Running In Circles: one shot. Kyungsoo ends up sharing an apartment with player Jongin and has no patience for him
