are the best bagels

I'm headed to NYC at the moment for the long weekend -- anything I should absolutely do while I'm there?

Rush Groundhog Day. Wake up at 8am and head over to the theater and wait for the box office to open at 10am with friends in line. Pay $35 bucks for cheap seats and watch my favorite Broadway Musical of the year. It’s SO good and so worth it. Also, seeing Times Square at the hour is surreal. 

Before going to the Groundhog Day rush, go to Murray’s. Get a traditional everything bagel with lox. Best bagel in the city.

Go to Central Park, but from uptown. No tourists go all the way to the uptown part of Central Park. It’s the most gorgeous part, secret gardens and decorated gates. You can’t beat it. Get lost. Talk about life with someone you love, if they’re not with you, give them a call. Pet every dog you see. 

Bryant Park as well, from there go into the library. Inhale deeply. Ink, and dusk, and old New York. Grab a coffee and danish in the Bryant Park New York Public Library coffee shop on the ground floor. Write in your journal. Inhale again. 

The best view in the city is not the Empire State Buiding, it’s the Skylark on 39th between 7th and 8th. You’ll pay $15 for the best drink of your life (passion fruit whiskey is my poison of choice) but that’s less expensive than the Empire State Building, with a way better view. 28th floor. Act like you belong. No one does. So you might as well join in the con. 

The Met. It’s free. Egypt wing. And the American art wing. Stand next to Washington crossing the Delaware. Tell him your friend Cara sent you and that she says “hey.”

Marie’s Crisis at 1am on a Saturday night. Order a gin and tonic. Sing Rent at the top of your lungs with a stranger who will tell you how much this show meant to him. Who will dedicate his song to the friends he lost to AIDS. Order another gin and tonic. 

Stop and listen. Feel small. Embrace the chaos. Take three pictures every time you want to take one. Fall in love with my home.

When he's not on a mission, visiting Peggy, or sitting Sam's class at the VA, Steve spends all his free time hunting for decent pizza. There's got to be somewhere in DC that sells a passable, Brooklyn-style slice.

“Tony, I need your help.”

Stopping at a desk, Steve used his palm to smooth a long roll of paper right over a pile of lumpy parts.

Tony moved closer.

“What’cha got there?” Tony asked. The paper map was covered in colored dots. Reds, blues, blacks. Tony looked up at Steve’s unsmiling face. “Is this an alien invasion? I told you guys we needed to be ready” Tony took a raspy breath and started to sweat. “Is it hot in here?”

“No. No aliens.”

“Thank God.” He slumped into a nearby chair.

Finger pointing at the map, Steve said “Every evening, or afternoon, depending on when I have free time, I have hit a different pizza shop in DC. Cheese pizza should not be hard to find. They say they have Brooklyn style pizza, but …”

“Let me stop you right there. They won’t have it.”

“Why not?”

“It’s the water. Catskill/Delaware watershed. The low calcium content makes the best pizza dough and Bagels. Personally, I think the best tasting water comes specifically from the Catskill Mountains. Have you ever had water straight from a spring in the Catskills? Nothing else like it.”

“Is that why New York water tastes better than anywhere else?”

“You guessed it.”

“I thought I was just being nostalgic.”

“Nope. Not homesick, and not just enhanced taste buds. Regular people taste the difference too.”

But isnt the wife stealing fetishist lancelot

the tale of tristan and isolde (or: how king mark got cucked) was inspired by the celtic tales of naoise and deirdre (or: how king conchobar got cucked) and diarmuid and grainne (or: how fionn got cucked), and most likely in turn inspired the tale of lancelot and guinevere (or: how king arthur got cucked)

those ancient celts sure loved to talk about their kings getting cucked huh

IF BANGTAN WERE BAGELS WHAT KIND WOULD THEY BE I NEED TO KNOW FOR REASONS THANK YOU

After literal months sitting in my inbox, this is finally getting answered. I have alternate answers to all of these, but I had to pick one (and stop wasting valuable work time googling “ridiculous bagels”), so without further ado:

Bangtan as Bagels

Kim Seokjin - Multigrain Bagel

Wholesome, good for you, stunningly aesthetic, and often overlooked as one of the best kinds of bagels out there. (Not pictured: strawberry cream cheese, for optimum sweetness, whimsy, and pink)

Min Yoongi - Onion Bagel with Chive Cream Cheese

A little prickly on the outside, a little bitter on the inside. But a savory flavor sure to satisfy. And once you’ve picked this one, everyone will be able to tell. ;) Plus, it’s mostly just gooey goodness at the heart of it…

Jung Hoseok - Whole Wheat Bagel Sandwich

There is nothing this bagel does not offer you and freely give. Enjoyed by all who try it, filled with goodness to keep you going through your day, and never fails to bring joy to the world around it.

Kim Namjoon - Sesame Seed Bagel with Lox

An acquired taste for some, this fancy and seemingly pretentious bagel is actually the everyman’s bagel, loved by millions as a good way to start the day. Sophisticated, yet frequently awkward to eat.

Park Jimin - Bagel Bite

Wee but mighty – you can never get enough of this bagel. Frequently saucy AND cheesy, this is one bagel sure to please the masses. And check out those cute little curves! (Notice how hard I’m resisting making the JIMIN IS A BAGEL JOKE?)

Kim Taehyung - Rainbow Bagel with Sugar Crystals

I’m not sure I actually need to explain this one, but here goes: Never fits the mold, stands out proudly, makes everyone smile, and loved by both children and adults. (Paired with the right spread, this bagel can be intense, compelling, and unexpectedly intriguing)

Jeon Jungkook - Everything Bagel with Mac & Cheese and Also a Burger Because Why the Fuck Not

Always so fucking extra, this one. An everything bagel includes all the best parts of all the other bagels (because they raised him on their BACKS, Jungkook. I mean… *ahem*) Always doing the most, sometimes gets stuck in your teeth and bugs you all day (or worse, embarrasses you), gives you heartburn, and probably leaves you with regrets in the morning. But also, really just a kid on the inside, trying to impress everyone.

To be honest, college was not entirely exciting for you.

There was the endless need to submit papers, plus the fact that the readings that your professors assigned to you was endless. Furthermore, some professors did not care if you passed or failed, while some even did not care if you actually learned something in class. What was worse was the fact that some of your professors simply read whatever they would place on the PowerPoint.

And unfortunately, your first class in the morning was the kind of professor who did everything of the above. Plus, the fact that this class was a required minor subject, which you could probably slack off a bit, but still not afford to fail. But, you were on an academic scholarship, so you had to make sure that you did not get any grade below a C. Hence, you were going to have to make do with whatever you had to make sure you passed this class. 

Even if the professor sucked.

The bell rang, signifying the end of class, as your professor dismissed the class. He stayed in the room, however, since he still had another class after yours. After all, he was assigned to teach the morning classes of this particular subject.

You decided to text your best friend regarding where the two of you were supposed to meet that day, while you were on your way outside the classroom when you suddenly bumped into someone. You apologized quickly as you turned up from your phone.

“I’m really sorry! I wasn’t looking up at all,” you apologized to the person as he shook his head, giving a reassuring smile to you.

“It’s okay,” he said warmly as he moved to the other side of the path and went inside the classroom. You turned around and smiled, a bit satisfied that there wasn’t much fuss, but you suddenly felt someone tug your wrist, making you turn back.

Pairing: Simon Snow/Baz Pitch


June 19th

Baz POV

“Please Baz”

“You’re absurd if you think I or Snow will go along with this Bunce”

“You’ll find a way to persuade him, you always do.”

I raise an eyebrow in response.

“It’s his birthday Baz. I just want him to have a nice day.”

I sigh, only Bunce would come up with a plan as utterly ridiculous as this.

“You just have to take him out for a few hours while we set up a party for him here. It’s nothing major, a few drinks, I’ll pay if you want! We just need to get him out for a while.”

It’s Simon Snow’s birthday in two days and Penelope Bunce has come up with the brilliant idea of throwing him a surprise party in our apartment.

There are only five things you need to know about the tragedy that is Simon Snow;

1: He’s obsessed with food (like really obsessed, it’s all he thinks about)

2: Due to unfortunate, mandatory housing arrangements, he and I live together

3: He’s studying to be a teacher because he is practically a child himself (though he will deny it)

4: He despises me because I accidently pushed him down the stairs on moving day at the start of the year.

5: I’m hopelessly in love with him.

We were assigned to live together at the start of the year and it’s only gone downhill since then.

The first few months were torture.

Living with the drop dead gorgeous student with blonde curls and piecing blue eyes that made my breath catch was bad enough but said student was also the greatest idiot I had ever met.

He got crumbs all over our tiny apartment, he was always hogging the T.V. by watching sci-fi shows with his best friend Penelope with the big frizzy red hair and purple glasses and he never knew when to shut up.

Simon Snow could talk for days on end and never pause to take a breath. And most of what he says is utter nonsense but nobody calls him out on it. Well, nobody except me.

He’s also a hypocrite. Because while he doesn’t care that his chatter all day disturbs me, the minute I got out my violin and practised, he started complaining about the noise.

Though I suppose I had been playing at two in the morning but in my defence how was I supposed to sleep knowing that Snow was sleeping half naked on the other side of my bedroom wall?

Of course I couldn’t tell him that so I told him I was stressed about school.

He actually had the nerve to narrow those perfect blonde eyebrows of his and ask if I wanted to talk about it.

I told him he needed to stop acting like his annoying ex girlfriend Agatha and keep out of my business.

He stormed back into his room in a huff and I almost continued playing just to rile him up further.

But I didn’t.

Because that night when he stormed into my room, his eyes filled with exhaustion and rage, his hair tussled from sleep and so much of his glistening brown skin on show was the night that I finally accepted that I was quickly falling in love with him.

“Why don’t you take him out and I’ll help set up the party?” I suggest “Snow’s much more likely to agree to go out with you than with me.”

‘Because he’s straight.’ I remind myself 'And even if he weren’t, you’re the last person he’d want to be with.’

Bunce avoids my eyes, “I thought of that but our friends weren’t sure…”

I roll my eyes, “Your friends are afraid to be alone with me? Really? Just what rumours are Snow and you spreading about me?”

Bunce huffs, “You aren’t exactly subtle about your hatred for Simon, Baz. Plus you know I can never lie to him. I know you can so please? Just this one day, do something nice for him.”

Bunce is unfortuantly right.

If I can lie about my feelings for him for all these months then I should be able to hide his surprise party from him for a few hours.

Summer holidays start in two weeks anyway and I’ll be free of the -oh so perfect- Simon Snow for two whole months.

“Fine” I say, keeping the edge in my tone so Bunce knows that I’m not one bit happy about this.

Bunce’s eyes widen with joy and surprise and she grins madly,

“Oh thank you, thank you! You’re doing me a massive favour Baz! I won’t forget this.”

“You better not” I mutter but she doesn’t seem to be listening to me anymore

“Would you be able to take him out around 7? We should have everything sorted by 9 so could you be back by then? Oh this is amazing, he’ll love it!”

Penelope is already halfway out the door and is looking around my apartment and murmuring about where to put what.

“Sure Bunce.”

“You’re a star Baz! See you then!”

And then the door slams closed. I wince and wonder what on earth I’ve gotten myself into.

The Futon

hey can kai and i sleep at ur place tonight roomie got pissed last time kai spent the night at mine

Kibum scoffs at the text he just got from Taemin. He should know by now that Kibum can’t say no to him.

The Futon is open for business if u get ur asses here by the time i go to bed

thanks key ur the best we’ll bring u bagels!!!

Kibum just shakes his head and goes back to the paper he was writing. Once he finishes the paragraph he was on, he goes into his bedroom to get his extra comforter out of his closet and put it on the futon. Taemin always complains about the purple flowers that decorate it, but he always shuts him up by saying he can go find someplace else to sleep if he’s going to bitch about Kibum’s extra blankets. Besides, Kibum’s cousin gave it to him for free; he’s not gonna pass up a free comforter, flowers or not.

the funny thing is about this bread au, there is actually a recording of Roy's voice actor singing a song about wanting to have a simple life as a baker

Oh knead knead
Pull, pull
It’s time to mold it
Into the shape of a dinner roll

I’m just a simple baker
Trying to make my way
Though my bagels are the best
At the end of the day

I like to make them
At just the right time
So the Lieutenant can hear me
Bust this sick rhyme

I’m going to make them
Over an open fire
Whoosh, whoosh

‘Cause you know my heart 
Burns for bread too
Kaboom, kaboom!
