baltimore things

andrew’s relationship with wymack is really something. andrew knows how to pick handcuffs and were he handcuffed to anybody else he would have been out of them in no time. but, no in his current emotional state wymack was the only stabilizing thing during baltimore. until he arrived back at the hotel and he noticed new cars in the parking lot. which could only mean one thing, neil was there. i bet you andrew had never run faster in his life and that’s with dragging wymack behind him

this afternoon i decided i’d try my hands at the most iconic andreil scenes

now at 1 am i’ve got a single WIP, lots sleep and no motivation OTL

Edit: this actually got notes so i repainted it with proper shadows + u can now get it here

Knowledge I Acquired in Philadelphia and Baltimore

·         The thing that Kaylie (Kali? Kaleigh? Kalie? Kehleh????) plays for Dave Hause and the Mermaid is called a melodica. The more you know.

·         The words that Dave asks you to sing are “I got the autism vaccine blues.” I didn’t figure this out until 20 minutes ago cause I googled it.

·         The Patience call Matt “Matty”

·         They call Evan “Evvy”

·         No one seems to call Frank “Frankie” which honestly is not surprising.

·         Alex’s signature is currently a star inside of a G

·         Evan is TOO FUCKING NICE. I watched him play along with a wasted tech for half an hour and then hang out with fans for another hour and then a half hour more after he said, “I’ve gotta pee so bad, I’m gonna pee my pants.” Like this boy started crossing his legs and getting antsy and STILL wasn’t telling people to STFU and go home like he totally should have. Don’t take advantage of Evan, I’ll fight you.

·         Matt hasn’t been hanging around after shows so much, which is totally fine, just interesting. :)

·         The bald guy with a beard who runs onstage to fix mics and hand off guitars is named Kevin, and he’s very good at his job…and the jobs of other people

·         Kevin, who says he’s a “backline tech,” is not afraid to spill some fucking tea.

·         Frank still doesn’t like getting hugged please don’t just walk up to him and hug him, more on this later.

·         Alex Grippo is literally always ready to give up a pep talk, whether he’s drunk, high, or sober. (Only confirmed drunk or sober but he loves some green so I’m hypothesizing).

·         The big idea of that pep talk might be “Do what you want, but do what you need. It’s a hard balance.”

·         Alex loves talking about his wife

·         Alex advises that one use dental floss for sewing patches if one wishes to be a Real Punk

·         Alex split his pants by the fifth day of tour

·         All the dudes in The Patience are just…growing their hair out. They’ve never had it this long and they don’t know what they’re doing.

·         Evan especially doesn’t know what to do with his hair even though we’ve assured him it looks just fine.

·         Evan has a strip of forever-blonde hair on the front of his head that never changed from his childhood.

·         Frank agrees that Jersey at least looks shittier the further you go north, and that the culture between North and South Jersey is different in that people from South Jersey never wanna leave, and people in North Jersey try to peace the fuck out.

·         Evan’s glasses mysteriously disappear and reappear throughout the set.

·         The lead-in to one of the songs straight up sounds like Pomp and Circumstance, and I don’t think they realize it at all.

·         The wasted guy who bugged Evan all night swears up and down that The Patience is one of the best bands he’s ever worked with, but he also swears he and Evan are best friends even though later Evan was like, “Yeah we go back hours, what the fuck.” So…take that as you will.

·         Alex got called a cheeky bastard once, and he loved it. If we can all find a way to casually insert it into conversation (as a compliment) I wonder if he’ll notice…

·         Frank is a good musician. Like, we all know that already, but watching him improvise and work through new shit in the acoustic session was like eye-opening. He’s seriously good at his job.

Prompt where Neil hides a British accent from the foxes to hides his identity but when he comes to the hotel after the Baltimore thing he lets it out and their all like the fuck

I looooove accents jfc this is like a thing for me okay and since there isn’t just one British accent and you haven’t specified I’m gonna go big (because go big or go home, right) and gift Neil with a thick, thick Yorkshire accent (I’m not gonna write dialect so if you don’t know how it sounds you should watch like a minute of this and imagine Neil talking like that… there ya go)

Hope you like this!

So today was Baltimore Comic Con and I cosplayed Hugh from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, based on the graphic novel illustrations and the photos in the novel. This cosplay was a lot of fun, even though the goggles shoot my depth perception and peripheral vision in the foot and I’m already nearsighted to begin with. That being said I still think I got some great pictures (all of these were taken by my dad!) and I got a ton of compliments from people either A) had no idea what I was but were impressed by how many bees I had or B) had no idea what I was but were shocked and delighted by how soft Henry the plush bee is.

All in all a good day even if I did have to take the costume off early because one of my little friends kept poking me in the neck.

What if Neil’s uncle came just a little bit too late? and Nathan had the time to completely fuck up Neil’s legs. he wanted to stop Neil from running away again, but Neil can’t even stand on them anymore.

He has no feeling in them now. the doctor point blank tells him there is 0% of Neil ever walking again. and Neil’s devastated. Exy was his life, the reason he came out of hiding. Exy is what gave him friends, a family, a home. and now it’s just gone. ofc his dad would take this final thing from him. he could of killed him, but he took away his reason for living instead.

and Neil’s just withdrawn. he can’t bare to even look at anything Exy. he avoids Kevin like the plague, cause that boy just bleeds Exy. but Kevin’s avoiding Neil too cause, how’s he supposed to look Neil in the eyes knowing his futures gone? i mean, the foxes lost the championships by not having enough players, and that killed Kevin enough, but at least they all get to play again. and Kevin recovered from his injury, but Neil can’t.

after weeks of Neil refusing to come out of his room, or talk to anyone, Andrew’s had enough. he bursts through the bedroom door and just chucks these leaflets at Neil. Neil picks one up and see’s they’re about Wheelchair Exy.

(it’s like a mixture of wheelchair hockey and basketball, known as Power Exy. Exy’s already a violent sport, but it’s even more violent when you’re not only throwing yourself at someone, but your wheelchair too.)

written by M, intended to be the beginning of a short series (¾ parts? depends on what yall want) if there is enough interest

Every time you got to the airport in your hometown of Baltimore, the same thing happened. You walked off the plane and in to the airport, only to pick up the bags that the guys would drop when running to pull the love of their lives in to a huge hug. They tried not to notice that you never had anyone to come home to, but their pity sank in to your skin when they would invite you out to dinner as an afterthought.

They didn’t mean to forget about you once they got back to Baltimore but they had more pressing matters to attend to other than their pathetic tour manager and you wouldn’t let them try to baby you. 

Time off in Maryland was uncommon for the band and you weren’t going to let them spend what little time they had away from you, trying to keep you company.

Bonus: Mentions outside of songs

Tupac in interview

“The whole world’s gonna owe me an apology, 'coz I went through this and ain’t blow my brains out like Kurt Cobain.”

Tyler the Creator on Twitter

“Nevermind, I’m Gonna Do What Kurt Did. I’m Going”

Freddie Gibbs in interview

“Kurt changed it up, that’s why it was such a revolution when he committed suicide.”

I just read a post where someone told a story about how when they were little they accidentally stole a can of pringles from a store while their mom was shopping because they forgot to hand the can over to be scanned and so they thought they were going to be arrested as a thief so they ran away, and the cops found the kid walking on the side of the road and the kid freaked out and tried to run again and fought the cops to escape and broke down in tears but when the cop heard the kid’s story he laughed so hard he cried and took the kid back to their mom and paid for the can of pringles too because it was so funny to him. And like that’s a cute and funny story about childhood or whatever sure–but all I could think the whole time I was reading it was, “and if you were black they probably would have shot you instead.”

This should not be a thought that goes through my head in 2015. Or ever.

Prompt where Neil hides a British accent from the foxes to hides his identity but when he comes to the hotel after the Baltimore thing he lets it out and their all like the fuck

Ok, so I’ve seen this exact prompt at least two other times for other writers…but here’s my take on it! 

In which Neil Josten is the son of Nathan “The Butcher” Wesninski and Mary Hatford, Mob Boss of The Hatford Family - an AU. 

  • The Hatford’s are to the UK what the Moriyama’s are in the US. Making Neil’s significance that of Ichirou Moriyama, Mary’s to Kengo. and Stuart’s to Tetsuji. 
  • Nathan is not aware of said significance when Mary marries him, she was undercover, running away with Neil was always part of the plan.
  • Dying in California was not. 
  • Neil knows. Mary had told him everything, her family, his significance, their power, their empire. 
  • She dies, and leaves him with this legacy, that no one but Stuart now knows of, bc no one knew that Mary had a son, except for Stuart. 
  • So Neil, being in the US, away from the Hatford’s, with his father on his tail, decides that it’s best to never mention to anyone who he really is
  • The Hatford part of him is who Neil really identifies with, bc they aren’t like the Moriyama’s or the Wesninski’s, they don’t kill for sport, they’re well-respected, not feared.
  • So PSU, the Foxes, Baltimore - happens. 
  • And Neil makes the conscious decision to switch back to his native accent, one he hadn’t used in too long. He’s just so tired of hiding, he’s found his family and if that means his identity needs to be known, then so be it. 
  • The entirety of the hotel room just…stops. Like, he’s busted up pretty bad, but it’s still Neil, why is he talking like that? 
  • Dan’s the one who says something about his accent first
  • Neil’s so tired of running
  • He takes a deep breath and just let’s it all out, his story, his family, his mother, the Hatford’s, Stuart, the Moriyama’s, all of it 
  • Kevin’s bout to have a heart attack 
  • Andrew refused to even look at him for all of 2 minutes after Neil was done explaining. 
  • Matt’s prob crying 
  • Nicky’s def crying 
  • And yeah
  • The Moriyama’s don’t have the control they thought they did over Neil once the news spreads
  • Stuart offers to take him back home, but Neil stays
  • Neil stays.
  • Neil “Hatford” Josten is who he is, and after enough time, he steps down and offers Stuart his position in the family, which Stuart doesn’t take initially, not wanting to take that away from Neil
  • But Neil has more reason to stay in the US than the UK anyway 
  • He’s happy where he is, with the people that he is, and he wouldn’t have it any other way

somebodyhelpthenotdeadfreds  asked:

Freddie would never admit out loud that she really looked forward to Friday nights of getting drunk at Frederick's while they ate terrible Thai takeout.

Frederick maintained that it was the best Thai food in Baltimore but like most things he liked, it was terrible. “’cept for alcohol, you got good alcohol taste.”

“Thanks,” He said flatly, rolling his eyes. “You know you’re supposed to savor the taste, not down it in one go.”

“Where’s the fun in that?”

“We’re not getting drunk,” He told her, already digging into the takeout boxes. “We’re celebrating.”

“Celebrating what?”

“My review was today,” He replied. “I’ve been cleared and am set to return as administrator on Monday, just like you said I would be.”

“I’m always right, Freddo, your life will be easier when you realize that,” She told him, pouring herself another drink. “You chose to celebrate with me?”

He shrugged, “It’s relevant to the article, right?”

“Of course.”

Neither said anything about the fact that her recorder was sitting in the passenger seat of her car or that she hadn’t so much as touched the computer in her bag since showing up, neither said anything about the fact that they more often than not said anything about the interview or Gideon on Fridays. Freddie liked it that way.
