The first American novel, William Hill Brown’s The Power of Sympathy, which the author wrote to “expose the dangerous consequences of seduction,” is published anonymously in Boston on this day (21 January) in 1789.
Boston Chelsea Hotel Ch.1 (Trixya) - Evelyn Bubbles
Hi! Evelyn Bubbles here. I hope you bitches are ready for this new chapter! It wouldn’t be here without my beloved translator, Sofi, and my amazing beta VicThirteen. You girls made my day! (And life).
This chapter is super long, I’ll snatch your wigs!
My tumblr is @subtle-spaghetti if you wanna ask me something or send a request. Constructive criticism is always welcomed! And please keep in mind English is not my first language, so… enjoy anyway!
Note: I changed some characters’ gender. Yup! There are no drag queens here!
for whatever reason, the Boston gang all end up on an 8 hour flight together. who sleeps through the whole thing? who's the annoying neighbor? who is secretly terrified the entire time? how does it all go down?
The Boston Gang go on Vacation! God help all of them.
Henry, Fanny, and baby Charley are sitting next to each other, and Henry REALLY wants the window seat. Charley wants it too. Henry has to be the adult and give it to him, but after an hour Charley gets bored as hell and starts crying just to fuck with them. He cries the rest of the flight, just because he can. He’s only 2 and is already an asshole. Henry and Fanny are on the verge of tears themselves. Sam offers to give Charley a shot of whiskey to knock him out, which causes Julia to slap him.
Charles gets the aisle seat in the row next to Henry, which is super necessary for his height. Sam is sitting next to him, and Julia is in the window seat oh her side. Sam probably ignores her the whole flight and leans over to talk to Charles. They are both a little too loud, and when Charley starts crying they probably speak louder to be heard, which gives Julia a fucking migraine. Charles is so excited to get there, and Sam is just excited that Charles is excited. They kind of hold hands the whole flight, which Julia absolutely notices and will not forget any time soon.
Julia probably sighs and tries to sleep the whole time, but Sam’s big mouth and Charley’s screaming keeps her up. She’s on the verge of murder.
Ted is probably sitting with Wendell Phillips and Anna Shaw, and the three of them have the most normal and casual flight of all. When the conversation lags, all three probably resort to on screen entertainment. Wendell and Anna probably both fall asleep on Ted, and he doesn’t mind it for one second.
Oliver and Amelia and 5 year old Wendy are in the next row, and Oliver IS the annoying neighbor who tries to talk to everyone around him. He focuses mostly on Amelia, but Sam and Charles just said something funny, or Emerson mentioned an interesting fact, and Holmes HAS to one-up them. He doesn’t shut up the whole flight. Wendy mostly looks out the window or watches tv. Amelia brought earplugs, and spends the rest of the flight reading.
Thoreau is convinced they are going to crash. The conversation probably goes like this:
Thoreau: I hate this… I hate this. What if we crash? Waldo, why did you convince me to do this?
Emerson: We’re not going to crash. The statistical likelihood is ridiculously low.
Holmes: Exactly, HD. The odds of dying in a plane crash are one in 11 million.
Imagine Steve going undercover and using a New England accent.
“’Ey Frankie, I need
anothah beeyah heeyah,” Steve calls across the bar.
“Gimme a sec, Timmy,
I gotta help this moron.”
Steve settles onto
his barstool. According to the team, he’s really good at mimicking accents, so
when they needed someone to infiltrate in Boston, who better to send than
someone who can sound just like them. He cringes at how crude the dialect
“I ain’t got all
day, Frankie. I gots things t’do, people t’see.”
“Yer a fucker Timmy.
Here’s yer beeyah. Now get outta my sight.”
Steve smiles, not
minding that he ruffles a couple feathers. How else is he supposed to fit in?
“Well you didn’t
have to be rude,” Natasha’s voice
comes over his earpiece.
“Have you spent any
time watching me? These people have two modes, loud and rude. Also they can’t
drive for shit. Have any of them heard of a blinker? And what’s with the
streets? I never know where the fuck I’m going. I’ll be driving along and suddenly,
the street becomes one way, but there’s no where to turn and I can’t make a
U-ey. This is a messed up town, Nat.”
“Jesus Steve, I didn’t
realize you felt so passionately about Boston. I thought you woulda loved it,
considering you were around when all that patriotic shit went down.”
“Fuck you, I’m not
replies, a smile in her voice. “Just get back to it. I’ll check in later.”
SInce the controversy with liam is going around, is it too late to organize something like taking rainbow signs that say "ITS ABOUT FEELING SAFE" during the shows (im going to boston and I want to do this but not be alone)
We think this is a great idea! There are 132 participants going to OTRA boston so you definitely won’t be alone. You can find all our boston participants here and check out the Boston Rainbow Direction meetup here - feel free to get in contact with them and make this happen!
We have so many beautiful RDers coming to Boston! And while Boston should be a pretty friendly place, I know some folks may feel nervous about waving their rainbows in a big crowd. On the slim chance someone harasses you at Gillette or you see someone else being harassed, please text the word: CONDUCT to 78247 followed by the details of what's going on, and someone will come deal with it. This is anonymous report service, so don't be afraid to use it!
I dont know if anybody's said this yet but for the color app you dont need to screenshot. If you press the i in the lower right hand corner it lets you choose which color you are. You only need a screenshot if you are orange or purple
Hi, thanks for the info! You can find more about the Rainbow Light action here.
