and that wristband really

The Façade of the Modern Hipster Chef

If you are a chef who also has an “urban farm”, what you are is a chef who gardens, a gardener. You have a fucking garden, no matter how many people work there. I know it doesn’t sound cool, but does your microeconomy really depend on gauged ears, steampunk wristbands, and a collection of pennyfarthings, or does it depend on your commitment to urban community gardening and food sustainability?

Thought I would be going to Houston for the weekend, but it turned out to be merch I will very much appreciate. 2 years ago I bought an ACL wristband and on my way out 2 guys really wanted to see the last act so I gave one of the guys my wristband and my sister gave the other hers. Last year my friend gave me a 3 day wristband and I got into ACL for free and took some of my favorite photos. Two weeks later I ended up front row for Taylor Swift. Better things will come~

To everyone who’s going, I hope you have lots of fun.

@taylorswift put on an amazing show as always 💖
Request: Special gift

Request: You’re a hang around, usually being in parties and stuff. One day Tig wakes up with a major hungover and finds you taking coffee with the guys wearing one of his wristbands. He asks why and you tell him how he got really drunk in the previous night, and you actually took the time to help him to his dorm, bath him and stuff. He kept trying to play with you but you were super mom on him haha Then as he is getting into bed, he takes the wrist band off and gives to you as a special thanks

Sun was sneaking through the blinds in Clay’s office and you stretched on the couch, waking up. You had crashed there after the party last night, not wanting to drive after the few drinks you had. You left the room and walked to the salon. It was a mess, cups and bottles of beer everywhere. People were sleeping around, some of them already waking up.

You entered the kitchen and started to make coffee. Soon, the boys would be around the bar, looking for a cure to their hangovers. You took the coffee to the bar and poured a cup for you. It was like the smell had awaken the dad, Bobby being the first to walk to the counter.

“Morning gorgeous”, he greeted you. Happy, Chibs, Juice and Kozik walked there too, waiting for you to pour them coffee. You liked to be around them, being a friend of the club for a while now. You were always there in the parties and frequently to make coffee in the next day.

“Is this one of Tig’s wristbands?”, Happy asked, pointing to your wrist. You looked down, smiling. You had forgotten that it was there and the boys where looking curious at you. Those accessories had a meaning for Tig.

“Yeah, he gave it to me”, you said. Bobby spit his coffee, laughing.

“He was drunk, right?”, he asked. You nodded, taking a sip of your own cup.

“Oh yeah, very”, you were about to tell what had happened when someone came from the hallway, cursing.

“Fuck!”, the person yelled after hit the wall. Tig himself emerged from there, his hand on his forehead and he practically crawled to the bar.

“Morning”, you greeted him as the boys smiled. You gave him cup of coffee, which he took it like his life depend on it.

“Man!”, he growled, turning to his brothers, “How much did I drink last night?”

“A lot”, you where the one who answered, making him look at you, an eyebrow raised. You hid your smile behind your cup, but he noticed it.

“What the hell did I do?”, he whined and suddenly his eyes widened, “And why are you wearing one of my wristbands?”

“Well…”, you started talking, all the boys looking as you told Tig’s Drunk Night story.


You arrived at the clubhouse a little late and the party was already wild. You never had seen people drinking as much as they were doing and apparently, Tig was the leader of the pack. He was behind the bar, pouring shots and serving beers, doing a prospect’s job, but looking happy about it.

“Hi Tiggy”, you greeted him. He smiled and poured you a drink, as he did the same for himself. If he kept doing that he would be in a coma really soon.

“Heeey dooooll”, you grimaced. He was already drunk.

“How about you let the prospect do his job?”, you suggested, drinking your shot.

“Are you trying to distract me?”, Tig leaned over the bar, looking at your cleavage, “‘Cause…That could work”

“No dumbass”, you laughed, “I’m trying to keep you alive”

“I’m alive!”, he opened his arms, trying to look like a hero or a god, but failing, only looking a stupid drunk biker.

“Oookay”, you shrugged and turned around. Stubborn drunk men weren’t your idea of a party and you walked away, looking for your other friends. As the party went on, Tig became more stupid, laughing of every joke, even the terrible prospect’s ones. The drink festival didn’t have stop either, he was still pouring drinks, one-for-you-and-one-for-me thing.

You walked to the bar again and slid your arm around his waist. Tig looked at you and smirked, doing the same with you. He thought that was being charming, but he was smelling awful and his face was red, he was tripping on his own legs..

“Come on Tiggy”, you cooed, “Time for bed”

“Yeah…Time for bed”, he nuzzled on your hair, making you hiss. You let him do it, wrap his arms around your waist, just for him to follow you to the bedroom. You stumbled along the hallway, but eventually got in his dorm where you threw him in bed, preparing to leave him there, “Come here”

“Jesus!”, you screamed when he pulled you down with him, making you fall over his body. You tried to get rid of his grip, his lips trying to kiss you, “Damn Tiggy, behave!”

“I like that game”, he smirked as you succeeded in getting up, “Yeah, I’ve been a bad boy”

You couldn’t help, you burst into laughter. Was he really thinking you would play the dominatrix game? Not with him drunk anyway. Tig looked up to you, now looking like a lost puppy. You cupped his face and kissed his forehead.

“Let’s get you under the shower okay?”, you whispered and he nodded, now losing all the excitement, acting like a robot. He tripped on his legs, but managed to follow you to the bathroom. You turned the shower on and pushed him under it, letting the cold water flow for a while.

You dried him and threw a clean boxer on his chest, telling Tig to change his dirty ones. He obeyed, still confused and drunk, but already able to stand up. He walked to the bed and growled as he laid down. You put a blanket over him and Tig smiled.

“This is nice”, he had a stupid cute smile on his face and you kissed his forehead, like he was a child, “Thanks Y/N”

“You are welcome sweetheart”, you smiled and turned to leave, but Tig held your wrist. You looked at him again and he was taking off his wristband, putting it on your hand.

“For you”, he whispered, already closing his eyes, “For being so nice to me”

You smiled, putting it on your own wrist. You turned the light off and slowly closed the door, leaving Tig sleeping like a baby.


I’ve been a bad boy”, Bobby imitated Tig when you finished the story, making all the boys laugh hysterically. Tig frowned and finished his coffee.

“Thank you doll”, he handed the cup back to you and turned to the hallway, walking back to his dorm. You rushed behind him, grabbing his elbow.

“Here”, you started to take off the wristband, “I know that it means to you”

“Keep it”, he covered your hand, stopping you. Tig kissed your forehead before turned back to his path, “You mean to me too, doll”

okay, but can we talk about how they’re coming full circle with Jasper and the wristbands? The last time he really had any interaction with them was back in season 1 when Monty was working on a way to use them to communicate with the Ark. When Jasper tried to connect the wire to it it shorted and fried all the wristbands, thus prompting the “I must be cursed” line and now it’s the wristbands that are going to help save Raven and eventually everyone else, and who is the one that was put in charge of getting the wristbands, and is going to try and put together the smashed one? JASPER FUCKING JORDAN.

Still in shock that this dork (@bientist) and I actually met dan and Phil. Tldr: it was a really freaking fantastic day. 

 Sooo so so I go to college in Pittsburgh, but I’m from NYC and I heard about this event weeks ago after someone on tumblr stealth found it on the b+n events page. I frantically checked all of my schedules to see if it was possible, bought 2 overnight bus tickets within barely 24 hours of each other, and DID THE THING (because turns out I’m a little crazy). I got to the line around 7 AM, having underestimated how many people would already be there. It was around the block, and I was fucking freezing, but I made some line friends to dork about d+p with and pass the time. Waited in line for like 2.5 hours, really worried i wouldn’t get a wristband after all, but I was finally able to buy one for me and @bientist and it felt like a rare and valuable treasure.
