Summary: Y/N decides to get a SQUIP. Things don’t end well when her boyfriend, Jared, finds out.

A/N: This was requested!! Hope you guys enjoy!

“So this thing actually works? It isn’t gonna go haywire like Jeremy’s did?” I asked, glancing down nervously at the shoebox in front of me.

“Jeremy Heere was a rare instance. This is a newer software, so all the bugs have been fixed.” The stock boy said, pushing the shoebox closer towards me.

“Awesome, awesome. Here’s your money, then.” I said, passing him the required bills. He smiled at me as he took the money, and he looked more like a shark than anything remotely human.

“Enjoy your new life.” He said, passing me the pill. I took it and watched nervously as he walked away, my leg bouncing up and down.

I pulled out the bottle of Mountain Dew from my backpack, and uncapped it, shoving the cap in my pocket.

I took in a deep breath and popped the pill in my mouth, taking a large swig of Mountain Dew.

I swallowed and let out a sigh, remembering what Jeremy had said about it taking a while to kick in.

I walked quickly back to my car, thanking God that I only lived about a 5 minute drive from the mall. I got home and opened Instagram, noticing a new post from Jared.

@theinsanelycooljk

Look at this nerd. She’s the worst, honestly. @Y/I/N

The photo was of me last Saturday, curled up on a couch, clutching a stuffed bear Jared gave me for Valentine’s Day and wearing one of Jared’s t-shirts.

I rolled my eyes, but a smile crept onto my face at his actions. I went to reply, but a wave of pain watched over my body.

“What the hell!” I screamed, collapsing to the ground. I rolled around, feeling my muscles seize up.

Calibration complete. Access procedure initiated.” A voice said and I looked around, wondering who was saying that. 

Discomfort level may increase.” The voice said and I suddenly let out a shriek of agony, feeling like I was being pulled apart from the inside.

Accessing: neural memory. Accessing: muscle memory. Access procedure: complete. Y/N Y/L/N… welcome to your Super Quantum Unit Intel Processor. Your SQUIP.” The voice rang through my head and I was suddenly free of pain.

“You… you sound like Lin-Manuel Miranda.” I said, and there was a brief silence. I wondered if the SQUIP was still active, but the voice spoke up again.

This is my default setting according to your memories. You can also set me for Kristin Chenoweth, Philippa Soo or Andrew Rannells.” Lin’s voice said, and I shook my head in disbelief.

“Lin’s fine. I, uh, God this is weird.” I said, still in shock and disbelief.

I exist only in your mind, Y/N. No one can see me, but they can, however, see you having an animated conversation with yourself. Instead, you can think at me. Telepathically, per se.” The SQUIP said, and I paused, cringing internally.

“Uh, ok.” I thought, still uncomfortable with Lin-Manuel Miranda in my head. Suddenly I heard a knock at the door, and my eyes widened.

Answer it, Y/N.” The voice said and I nodded, walking to the door. I swung it open, and smiled when I saw Michael and Jeremy standing there.

“Hey Y/N!” Michael said and I smiled, ushering them in. They dumped their backpacks down on the couch, and Jeremy brought me into a quick hug.

“How are you?” Jeremy asked, and I shrugged my shoulders. I suddenly felt a sharp pain in my back, and I straightened up immediately, cursing  internally.

You were slouching. For a drama student, I’d expect you to have better posture.” The SQUIP said and I immediately straightened up.

“I, uh, I’m fine. Really.” I said and Jeremy shot me a strange look.

“Can he tell I’ve got one? You know, a SQUIP?” I thought, and I imagined the SQUIP was laughing.

He can suspect, sure, but he will never be certain because of the fact that his unit is currently disabled.” Lin’s voice said and I nodded, not noticing th strange look Jeremy shot me.

“Y/N… are you sure you’re ok?” Jeremy asked, gently placing a hand on my arm. I flinched away slightly, and Jeremy’s eyes widened.

I hate to alarm you, but he has definitely noticed now.” My SQUIP said and I let out a shaky breath.

“How could you? I… ugh.” Jeremy said, running a hand through his hair.

“What’s wrong? Is… is something going on?” Michael asked, jogging up next to Jeremy.

“She got one, Michael. A SQUIP.” Jeremy whispered, and Michael’s face fell as he looked at me.

“Why?” Michael asked, looking at me with shock and disappointment etched into his features.

You should probably answer him. And tell him the truth. You may not have the same end game as Jeremy did, but they’ll assume that you do.” My SQUIP said and at this point I wanted to punch it.

“I, uh, I can assure you that I don’t want to be cool. That’s the last thing I want.” I said, but that didn’t ease the disappointment on my friend’s faces.

“You saw what that thing did to Jeremy. To the entire school. Why would you want that, Y/N?” Michael asked, sounding incredibly hurt.

“I… I wanted to be something better than what I already am. I know I have a good life and wonderful friends, but that doesn’t stop me from having social anxiety and a crappy self esteem.” I said and their faces softened slightly.

“You should’ve come to us instead of getting one of those cursed floppy discs implanted in your brain. You could’ve gone to Evan. Or Jared. God, what’s Jared gonna say about this?” Jeremy said, his eyes widening slightly.

I assure you, I am much better than a floppy disc.” The SQUIP said and I sighed, raking a hand through my hair.

“I’m calling Jared, Y/N. He has to know about this. He loves you more than anything else.” Michael said, and I winced at the thought of Jared reacting to the news Michael would be bearing.

“Maybe Michael and I should head off. We, uh, we can meet up another afternoon.” Jeremy said, looking at me with pity in his eyes.

“Calm down Jared! Yes, she’s home. Where do you think we are?” I heard Michael say, and I let out a sigh.

“Stay strong, Y/N. If it, uh, ever gets too much, I have an open door and a fridge full of Mountain Dew Red. Just remember that.” Jeremy said, tentatively placing a hand on my arm.

I would highly recommend not taking his offer. My objective is to help, I swear.” I nodded, smiling at Jeremy.

“Jared’s on his way over. He did not sound impressed.” Michael said, shoving his phone in his pocket.

“Ok, ok. You guys should go.” I said, giving the boys the largest smile I could muster. It was pretty depressing, but they appreciated the sentiment.

I waved halfheartedly at them as they left, and I let out a sigh as soon as they were gone.

You haven’t ruined your friendship, Y/N. They’re just disappointed. And slightly angry, but that’s not the point.” The SQUIP said, and I let out a groan.

“I don’t care that I haven’t ruined our friendship. They still hate me, and I can’t blame them.” I thought, pacing around the house and thanking god my parents weren’t home.

We’ll work on your self loathing later. Jared’s here.” I took in a deep breath, readying myself for the wrath of Jared.

“What the hell were you thinking, babe?” I saw Jared storm in, his face already red.

“I’m sorry, it’s just.” Jared interrupted me by capturing my lips in a kiss, and my eyes widened slightly.

Well, that was unexpected.”

I closed my eyes, attempting to block out the SQUIP. It worked, and I tangled my fingers in Jared’s hair, tugging on it gently.

He let out a low moan, and his grip on my waist tightened slightly. Jared pulled away, his breathing laboured and his cheeks flushed.

“I love you. You know that right?” Jared said, his hair sticking up at odd angles.

“Of course.” I muttered, resting my forehead against Jared’s.

“Then why the hell would you do this?” Jared said, pulling his face away from mine.

I let out a sigh, running a hand through my hair. “Jared, you know how much of a mess I am. I’m socially anxious, and…” I said, not wanting to tell Jared my other reason for getting the SQUIP.

“And? And what?” Jared said, looking at me with a determination he reserved only for incredibly intense games of Monopoly.

“And I often get worried that you don’t really love me.” I whispered, lowering my gaze to the floor.

Just in case you’re wondering, Jared isn’t pleased with that. At all.”

“Is.. do you honestly think that?” Jared asked, his voice soft. I took in a deep breath and nodded, bravely lifting my head.

I felt tears welling in my eyes, but I noticed that they had started to form in Jared’s eyes as well.

“Oh, Y/N.” Jared whispered, pulling me close to his chest. I sniffled, feeling a few tears run down my face.

“Shh, shh.” Jared muttered into my hair, rubbing my back soothingly. My tears found their way onto Jared’s shirt, and I noticed that my SQUIP was silent.

“Hey, hey, look at me.” Jared said and I lifted my head, noticing that his eyes were starting to go a little red.

“Never, ever, doubt that I love you. Sure, there will be times where you feel unloveable. Like the world is just out to get you. But those times are minute in comparison to the good times.” Jared said, gently wiping away one of my tears with his thumb.

Mathematically, and according to your memory base, 85% of the memories you have could be classed as ‘good’.

“I love absolutely everything about you. Your smile, your eyes and the way they light up when I tell you some dumb joke. How your hair always smells like strawberries and vanilla. Like, how?” Jared said, and I chuckled weakly.

“It’s my shampoo.” I muttered, a half smile resting on my face. Jared smiled widely at me and kissed my forehead, his lips lingering for a few seconds.

“I love the way your hand fits so perfectly in mine, and don’t get me started on your body. That could spark a very different kind of conversation.” Jared said, looking me up and down, biting his lip.

I felt the blood rush to my cheeks, and my smile widened slightly. “What I’m trying to say is, I love you Y/N Y/L/N, and I always will. SQUIP or no SQUIP.” Jared said, placing his lips on mine.

You should tell him that he’ll probably love you more with my assistance.”

I wrapped my arms around his neck, fiddling with the hair on the nape of his neck. His arms snaked around my waist, and pulled me tightly against his chest.

I kissed Jared with fervour, focusing on nothing except him. I pulled away reluctantly, my lungs burning slightly.

“I love you. I love you. I love you.” Jared said, punctuating his words by kissing both my cheeks and my forehead. I sniffled, smiling wider and brighter than before.

“You’re my favourite human being. You know that, right?” I said, looking up at Jared with love in my eyes.

Jared chuckled, tucking a wisp of hair behind my ear. “Of course I know that. And the same goes for you, Y/N. I don’t know what I’d do without you.” He said, taking one of my hands in his free one.

“Crash and burn, probably. You’re not very good at fending for yourself, babe.” I said, gigging slightly as I watched Jared pout.

“You’re so mean. I meant, it’s true, but still!” Jared said, squeezing my hand gently. I rolled my eyes, pecking his dusty pink cheek.

“Oh, babe! I almost forgot.” Jared said suddenly, and I looked at him curiously, arching an eyebrow.

“What is it?” I asked, and Jared smiled widely at me, pulling his phone out from his pocket.

“I saw the funniest meme the other day. You’re gonna love it!” Jared exclaimed, unlocking his phone and scrolling through it.

I laughed loudly, shaking my head at the enthusiasm Jared had for memes. “Sometimes I wonder why I’m still dating you, Jared.” I said, laughing slightly.

“Because I’m a wonderful human being who love you with every fibre of his being?” Jared said, giving me wide puppy dog eyes.

“I’d say so, babe. I’d say so.”

He would be in tears. Tears of laughter of course. He would probably take photos of you being stuck and would laugh some more. Once he pulled you back up after 5 minutes or so, you gave him the cold shoulder. “Come on baby, please don’t do this to me.. I’m sorry” He tried to hide his snicker. All you did was puff out your cheeks and turn the other way (Something Yoongi couldn’t resist) “No… I’m sorry! I really am! Please y/n… Let me hug you please… You’re really cute right now.. Please..”

“Jagi Jagi Jagi~ Where are you My sweet princess?”
“Taehyung! Please!”
“Marshmallow~”
“KIM TAEHYUNG GET ME OUT OF HERE THIS INSTANT OR ELSE NO MORE HUGS OR KISSES FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH”
With that, he instantly pulled you out and embraced you, “Please don’t, I can’t live without your hugs and kisses..”

He would be just like Suga and would be a laughing and crying mess. If the temperature was warm enough, he would literally roll on he ground and start laughing, “I bet this happened because you’re short” he teased

MY TRIP TO KRAKÓW

On Sunday I came back from Kraków where I stayed for a couple of days. I’d like to write for you some volleyball stories and moments which made me happy! :)

I went to Kraków on Thursday with my boyfriend. At 2pm we got off the train and went to square by the shopping center because there was a meeting with Karol Kłos and Andrzej Wrona (they anounced it on their facebooks). We saw a big crowd of girls so we knew that the meeting was there. We wanted to have a photo with them but it was quite impossible. I tried to take a selfie too but…

At 3pm they told us that they have to go so they stopped to take photos and dissapeard in their hotel (actually we hadn’t knew that the building which was next to the shopping center was their hotel but ok. We realized it later). We thought that maybe they will show up again so we decided to wait. Then we saw Rafał Buszek who was walking next to us. He was giving some autographs so we came closer too. He was ignoring every word we said (because we were asking him to take a photo) but then I told to my boyfriend: “Ok, take it, I will pose”. Here you have it:

We were so tired after our trip so we wanted to go to our hotel, take a shower and leave our suitcases. We saw another group of girls standing beside the other doors. We decided to wait 5 minutes more. Nobody showed up so we gave up.

After some time we got out of our hotel and went to The Old Town. We were enjoying the weather so we went for a walk. I checked photos on my instagram and I saw that Americans had posted some pics. We were looking for them everywhere but we didn’t manage to find them. When we lost our hope, my boyfriend asked me “Isn’t that men a volleyball player? He’s so tall” and then I got so emotional and told him “Omg, this is Piotr Gruszka!”. We came closer and asked him for a picture. He gave us a smile and agreed.

Later we met our friends from Kraków so we spent that evening with them. When me and my boyfriend were alone again, we went to see if the group of girls was still standing there. There was almost nobody, just 3 boys. When we saw that they asked Aaron Russell for a picture, we wanted to take it too (this pic is the worst hahaha and don’t ask me why). There was Micah Christenson too but we didn’t want to bother him so we came back to our hotel.

On Friday me and my boyfriend got up early, ate breakfast and went out. We wanted to go to the shopping center I don’t remember why but ok. When we were walking next to Starbucks we saw Thomas Jaeschke buying a coffee. We waited for him and obviously asked for a photo.

When we got out of a shopping centre we were close to ‘VolleyHotel’. We saw some of the players there. We didn’t want to bother them but when David Lee showed up we asked him for a photo. He seemed happy as always.

Later we had to go to The Old Town to meet our friend from Kraków again. When we were walking down the street I said to my boyfriend “Look, Łukasz Kadziewicz, I want to have a photo with him!”. He was carrying a microphone and the men who was next to him was holding a camera. When we were closer he asked us “Are you from Poland?”. We said that we are and we want to take a photo with him. Then he said “Ok, but now you are going to help me”. Then he asked us about few things like: where are we from and do we know what is happening today. We answered thats we are here and he started to record us. There was a little interview but this isn’t anywhere. Maybe that’s better because sometimes we were talking about stupid things. Nevermind, here you have a photo.

After that, we met out friend and cichypit who had arrived in Kraków. Later our friend had to go so we went with her to the shopping centre (we were there every day XD). When we left we decided to sit down under the tree because the weather was too hot. After some time we saw that something is going on with the VolleyHotel. There were many people who were looking like they were waiting for something. My boyfriend said that maybe volleyball players are going to leave the hotel and will go to Kraków Arena for their first match. We were standing there for a couple of minutes but then we realized that they are not going to leave it this way (because there were too many people). We went to stand beside the other door where there wasn’t nobody. We were waiting for… 2 hours I think. Aaron Russell and Thomas Jaeschke showed up first but they went to Starbucks to buy a coffee only :P (also for their teammates because they were carrying many coffees haha). Suddenly I don’t know how Karol Kłos went around the corner which really surprised me. My boyfriend asked him to take a photo quickly and he agreed. Here it is.

Here comes the best moment of that day! USA NT started to leave the hotel exactly this door where we were stand by. I was so excited and I was waiting for Max Holt. The first who showed up was Matt Anderson but he refused someone to take a pic. I was sure that everybody was going to refuse (because they hadn’t much time to do that). Then I saw Max who was leaving. I turned to cichypit and I said “He won’t agree, he won’t, I know it” and then my boyfriend asked him for a photo. He looked very surprised, like he didn’t excpect that. He said “Yes, of course”. Cichypit had to push me to go and pose but finally I did it. I was standing next to Max when my boyfriend said “Why  aren’t you standing in the middle?”. I got more surprised than Max at the beggining because I didn’t know that someone else is posing too. He took photos and I realized that this guy was Murphy Troy. I don’t remember every moment of this story but thankfully, cichypit and my boyfriend remember all. I WAS TOO EXCITED. But I have it and I love this photo so much.

After half an hour Polish NT was leaving too.

On Saturday we weren’t doing anything interesting. We met cichypit again and we sat down under the tree all day. At 6pm we went to Kraków Arena.

We were one of the first in Kraków Arena. We waited for the players. Team USA arrived  earlier than Team Poland. They started to warm up.  When every USA player was out I was worried because Max didn’t come. I knew that he had injury and on Friday he hasn’t played. Finally he came. He was wearing libero’s shirt.  

The saddest thing for me was that Max didn’t even attack, he gave balls for his teammates only :(

The most interesting thing of this match was the place where subs were standing especially when Holt and Anderson were there together. 

The moment which I have in my head all the time is when Max was singing “I got my mind set on you” and hit Matt in his ass by a towel. I don’t have a photo of it but it was the cutest!

Although Poland didn’t win, the match was absolutely amazing. We had so much fun there. We wanted to stay here for 5 sets but USA won 3:1. We thought that we would have another photos with the players but it was very hard. Team USA didn’t come to us, just Rafał Buszek, Dawid Konarski and Karol Kłos. My boyfriend decided to take a selfie with Karol Kłos. This selfie is the funniest of our trip haha. Even Kłos said to us “It must be a funny pic”. 

To sum up, this trip was completely awesome! I’ve never expected that I will have so many photos! I hope that in the future would be more and more :) Karol Kłos is definetely the nicest person, he even commented my photo on instagram! I’m so so so so happy! Thank you for reading this long post!

Andy Black at The Lyric Theater 3 March 2016

My sisters and a friend and I went to see Andy Black in LA at The Lyric Theater.

I wasnt able to get there very early (around 7pm) on account of us all having school earlier. So when we got there I was struggling to find parking near the venue. So I dropped everybody off, and decided to ask the people around where I might find somewhere to park.

Right at the entrance, this BVB guy (I think he’s their tour manager but I’m not sure) was hanging in front of the venue with two other guys. I asked him about parking, and he told me he parked in a residential area around the corner. I thanked him, and then I was about to go try to find parking when a man that was accepting concert goers into the venue told me that since it was after 4pm, I could park right there on the street. So I was able to park literally in front of the venue entrance.

There was a bar, so the guy at the entrance put large X’s on both hands of anyone who was under 21. There was a small room, a lobby of sorts, with green carpet that looked like fake grass, and a step up into the venue that was designed to trip people. A merch stand sold Andy Black t-shirts and posters. I bought some t-shirts from the mini merch stand. The shirts have “The Shadow Side” album cover on it. I love them!

The Lyric venue was very small, but it was intimate and cozy, and perfect for the secret “warm-up” set for Andy Black. There was a lot of open space, and a small stage. Barely enough room for the drum kit and with only a few feet of walking room for the guitarist and vocalist. The back drop of the stage was the words “Andy BLACK” written in huge letters. Smoke drifted off the stage, decreasing the visibility in the already dimly lit room, and adding an ethereal aura to the room.

There was already a lot of people there when I got there. Quite a few of them wore BVB or Andy Black merch. It looked to be fans of all ages, many of them dressed up nicely, and were very polite and enthusiastic.

It was very warm inside the room, so my companions and I wanted to get rid of our jackets. The guy at the entrance to the venue said that normally we weren’t allowed to return once exiting the theater, but because my car was hardly ten feet away, he said it was okay.

When I went back inside I saw Jake just hanging out in the lobby of the Lyric with his friends. He was drinking a coke, and surprisingly nobody was noticing him. I had previously passed up multiple chances to speak to the BVB guys because I am shy, and I didn’t want to bother them.

But I just went up to him and said hello and I got to shake his hand and tell him I think he’s awesome and he took a selfie with my sister, my friend, and I. He was quiet and didnt say much but it was really nice of him to take a photo with us. I’m really glad I was able to park so close, because otherwise I probably wouldn’t have met Jake!

A few minutes later, I saw Joe Flanders standing in the back and I went up to him to say hi and immediately he just opened up his arms and gave me a big hug and then we talked for like 5 minutes about Average Joe, and then he went backstage with his companions (the ones that I had interrupted in order to say hi to Joe…sorry guys).

It was only a few minutes until the show started, and the talking became louder and the room buzzed with excitement and anticipation. I found a spot close to the front, but all the way on the right side of the stage; I quickly became friends with the very sweet girls next to me.

One of them, Sophie, told me how she had spoken to Juliet Simms’ mom, who had come out earlier seeking a safety pin for Andy. Sophie said she gave her one. Later, during the show, Andy apologized that his pants were slipping (hardly noticable) and left Sophie and I to wonder about backstage wardrobe shenanigans and the fate of her safety pin.

I was right next to a speaker, but at least it was pointed away from me so it wouldn’t be so loud. The stage was no taller than mid-waist (and I’m not very tall). We watched the crew do equipment checks. There was no barrier, and hardly any security persons. Then only one I did see guarded the backstage entrance and the stairs that led up to the stage. Behind him was a photographer, the BVB manager (I had also seen him running about earlier), and the lovely Juliet Simms.

There was only a few feet a security guy between Juliet and I. She was so close! I said hi to her and told her I loved her and she blew me a kiss.

Also next to me was the lady that runs the Andy Black street team. I forgot to ask her her name :/ But she was very nice. She explained to me that the snapchat tweet from earlier (which I was confused about) was actually a filter that those at the show could use. She told me to follow the Andy Black street team page on Facebook and snapchat for news and things.

The venue’s music stopped as it was about time for the show to start, and people began chanting “Andy.”

Suddenly the drummer (on twitter @beauxevans) and the guitarist (on twitter @joshjarmusic) came out, the colorful lights on the stage came on, and all of a sudden everything was very loud and thrilling. One of the girls I had befriended earlier, Sophie, held my hand and we ended up clinging to each other in our mutual excitement for most of the show.
After some kick-ass instrumental, Andy burst onto the stage running, and they played “Stay Alive.”

They also played Ribcage, Dancing With Myself, Louder Than Your Love, Time To Waste, They Don’t Need to Understand, and We Don’t Have to Dance.

Andy asked the crowd if we were having fun, and we all screamed that we were. They sounded really awesome and everyone was just there to have fun. For such a small room, there was an enormous energy of love and enthusiasm that filled what little space people weren’t. Andy splashed water from water bottles on the crowd. My new friend Sophie let me go in front of her for a bit so I got to hold Andy’s hand. The speaker was right in front of us, and it was pretty cool to not only hear, but also feel the songs.

At some point the crowd chanted for Juliet to come on stage and say hi. At first she and Andy looked at each other and had a conversation through looks and gestures and after a moment he shrugged and asked her to come on stage. She came up, said hello to everyone, gave Andy a kiss, and went back to watch from just off stage. Andy said that that was very different and nice that (unlike at Black Veil shows) that they could have an unscheduled moment like that.

The concert ended more abruptly than it had started. With the final notes of We Don’t Have to Dance, Andy, Josh, and Beaux quickly exited the stage; security told us to make out way to the doors, and it was over.

I am also going to see Andy Black on July 2nd at the El Rey Theater in LA. Who else will be there?
