“ You are beautiful because your eyes are different sizes and your lisp gets in between your tongue and teeth every time you try to say “something”. You are beautiful because the scar under your chin looks like a spider and because you have a massive fear of heights. You are beautiful because there never has been, nor will there every be anyone else on this Earth like you. Because your flaws are like fingerprints and should be embraced just like the free will that resides inside. You are not beautiful because of the symmetry in the little squares on your telephone, you are beautiful because ‘you’ are the only ‘you’ this place will ever know.”

This song is what everyone needs. Absolutely love The Maine

do you ever just get really sad about the fate of Oscar Wilde, Alan Turing, Keith Haring, hell even Mark Ashton. Like, these men did so much & i literally have to put my neck out on the line to remind people they’re not only great men but they were also gay. why can’t we link queer and awesome together in mainstream society. why do we have to fight so much. why do i have to remind people that Mark Ashton literally the main character of Pride(2014) was died of HIV/AIDS and was a pillar of activism. Keith Haring drew inspiration from being gay & his HIV/AIDS diagnosis & the terrible tragedy that was the epidemic. Oscar Wilde wrote so wonderfully to create Dorian Grey & I adore his writing beyond most others. Alan Turing effectively stopped a war & created computer science at the same time. They were all successful and they were all queer. why is it always ‘despite being gay’, ‘in spite of their homosexuality’, ‘although he was gay’ like no. they were queer and they were brilliant. let the 2 coexist. they did amazing things and they were queer. they also did amazing things because they were queer. they did not succeed ‘’’’despite’’’’ their queerness. being queer is not something to overcome. they were queer and they were awesome. 


Terri Garber is one of my favorite actresses, but she isn’t very well known. She played bad Southern Belle Ashton Main in the miniseries North and South (1985).

I absolutely adore her and hope to talk more about how fabulous I think she is.

When it comes to being an absolute BAMF, Terri Garber is a master.

A new customer. - AI

“I despise you more than any other human I have ever met, sometimes. You’re loud and wild and act like you have the mental capacity of a five year old.” A sigh passes your lips. Great. This is just what you needed.

“Are you flirting with me?” He says as his face cracks into a smile and a chuckle leaves his lips. Ashton Irwin drove you crazy. He was the reason behind your current misfortune and was the reason your blood was at boiling point. But you couldn’t help but love him anyway.

“So, are you going to clean this mess up or just keep on staring at me? Not that I’m complaining but the hot coffee over my lap is quite distracting.” Silence. That’s all you could give him, as much as you pleaded with your head to talk there was no words.

“I’m just- erm, yeah. I’ll clean your table now.” The heat on your face was unbearable and you were certain that your cheeks had gone so red that the whole shop knew you had turned into a blundering mess. Ashton was sat back in his chair with his arms overlapped on his chest, a smug look on his face and he was practically basking in the pleasure of watching you.

It wasn’t that you hated Ashton Irwin, you didn’t at all but ever since the first day he walked into your coffee shop, all he had brought with him was trouble. He had come in one Monday morning, laptop in hand and nothing had been the same since. By Tuesday you were friends and had learnt all about his passion for music, how sometimes he had to get away from the studio and his band members in order to finish a song he had been working on. Wednesday brought on a whole new adventure in itself as he placed the earphones over your head, your stomach doing somersaults as he pressed play on a song he had just finished. It was unlike anything you had ever heard and you couldn’t help but close your eyes and get lost, the song ended and when you glanced at him he was staring at you, you could see the universe in his eyes and you caught yourself wishing he saw some in yours too. Thursday brought a sense of ease, Ashton had been asking you questions all day as you wandered around the shop and playfully answered him. His eyes never left you, he watched you intently and hung on to every word you said. And by Friday… well by Friday he meant everything to you. By Friday you knew you were in trouble.

You had never been so intoxicated by someone, the idea of him became a staple in your everyday routine and the days he was away became the longest. You would get up and go to work and keep your eyes fixated on the door waiting for him to enter. It was an unexpected friendship but it was one of your most valued and he quickly became someone you turned to when it felt like the world was against you. He made sure to question your actions and always encouraged you to be the best version of yourself, he made you a better person and you were grateful for that.

“You know, I’ve been coming in here for six months now and that’s the first time I’ve seen you spill something. I must say, I’m impressed.” You resist rolling your eyes and settle for a snarl that makes him shrink back into his seat. He laughs and it makes you pause, it’s your favorite laughter of his, the one that travels all the way to his eyes and makes them crinkle. It’s a sound you wish you could hear every day. You want to change the conversation, you want to tell him how the thought of him leaving today and not returning for a few months is slowly killing you but you know it’s too far. It’s too much for just ‘friends’. Ashton had slowly become the one who changed everything. He was the fire that set you alight and ignited every nerve in your damn body, he made you dare to dream and even made you finally pluck up the courage to write a business proposal to expand your shop.

Irony. It hits you hard in the face and drains you of any hope you have, you don’t get to decide who you fall for, all you know is that they drive you completely crazy insane but it is worth it. He is so wrong for you but so right, you know what you feel for him makes you feel unhinged and no one can explain it and it’s because you are in love. Irony. It makes you feel a hundred miles away from the one you are closest to.

It’s when he kisses you on the cheek you know there is no going back. He is leaving and his touch lingers on you longer than usual. Your hand brushes over his and you swear you feel your insides explode, his eyes search yours for the next move and it feels like time is moving so slow but the moment is over as quickly as it has begun. That is all it takes, a touch so subtle and gentle but it sets your whole body on fire, it leaves you dazed and takes you away for a few seconds. That casual kiss on the cheek should have meant nothing, but it made your heart burst and your hands shake. You were in love with him, not the casual love you feel when a stranger passes you by and stops you with their looks, it was nothing like that. It was the love that captures you and makes you grateful for every little thing that has ever happened. It was the love that had the power to reduce you to a fragile mess.

It had been weeks since you had heard from him, the sinking feeling in your stomach had grown every day and you are sure he has forgotten about you. The shop feels empty, the words of customers had become a background noise and you find yourself holding back tears on multiple occasions. Maybe it was you, maybe you felt something he didn’t and you had created an imaginary connection in your head. He was everywhere, his songs played on the radio and his usual seat in the shop is left untouched most days, acting as a constant reminder of his absence.

The bell on the shop door chimes and when you look up, you almost lose your balance.


He walks towards you and you swear you haven’t taken a breath since he entered, you don’t have to chance to register anything until his arms are curling around your body and pressing you tight towards his chest. Everything is tense until you feel him relax, your hands claw at the material of his shirt to convince yourself this is real. Words are muttered but you can’t decipher them, the world is spinning and you want to cry. He pulls back and his hands encompass the sides of your face, lips brushing against one another and suddenly it makes sense. You know why they call it falling in love, you fall with no destination and it drives you crazy, it sends you into a mess and lets your ears fill with your heartbeat whilst the world continues to spin.

His lips find yours again and you know it was worth the wait, you couldn’t care less that everyone is staring. It’s quiet but you hear it, his voice so low that aren’t sure if he is even speaking at all.

“I missed you. I missed you so much.”

I was bored so I made a band lock-screen🔒

anonymous asked:

Why are Ash and Mike the ones who get picked for PR stunts?

Ashton isn’t a main target tbh here’s how it works..

Michael - an easy target as he won’t say how he feels or is less likely to confront management

Ashton - They won’t use him too much as they know he is the most likely to tell people fuck off and that he won’t do it

Calum - Has on and off again pr because of how he can act at times sometimes he goes along with it and at times he also has stood up for himself (they had him wrong)

Luke - Unusable as he is the only one with an actual girlfriend that fans know about, If they tried to split Luke and Arzaylea for pr it would backfire cause him jumping right into another relationship fans wouldn’t take it serious right off the bat theyd take it more as a rebound.

Hope this helped
