benny you are my absolute favorite

James March: Nice Try

“Where have you been? I haven’t heard from you in weeks!” Your best friend, Janice shouted on the other end of the phone.

“I know I know.” You said to her, strolling around the 7th floor in the Hotel Cortez. Nothing but James’s white button up, panties and fuzzy slippers were worn on you. Nobody ever visited the 7th floor besides you, James and Miss Evers. James didn’t even want the other ghosts being a disruption either. Besides, there are plenty of other floors they can haunt.

“You haven’t been returning my calls. I was thinking you were mad at me or something happened to you.”

“I’m fine. Trust me.” You reassured your best friend. “I fell in love.” Falling in love with a ghost, James Patrick March to be exact, was never on your bucket list. The Blue Parrot lounge was where you met him and it was almost like love at first sight to you. He offered to pay for your drinks and then two of you hit it off there. The way he spoke had you weak in the knees. His voice was like silk. It almost soothed you as the words fell from his lips like butter.

“What?! Tell me all about it Y/N!” Janice said excitedly.

You couldn’t exactly tell your best friend that you’re dating a serial killing ghost because she’ll think you’re insane or on drugs. Instead, you told her what you wanted her to know from his first name, how handsome he is, where you reside with him and how amazing he treats you.

After reassuring her that you’re all and well, she let you go and made sure to tell your circle of friends that you’re doing more than okay.

Walking down the hall, you hummed to a tune as you were making your way to the room James was in. He had jazz music playing from one of his favorite artists, Benny Goodman. Although he has no choice really, you enjoyed that he was old fashioned. It’s quite difficult for you to come across single men your age like that. All they want to do is party and have sex with multiple women.

“Ah dearest.” James’s eyes lit up when he saw you enter the room before he took a seat on the chair with pipe in one hand. “You look absolutely splendid in my attire.” There was a newspaper on the coffee table as if his next task was to read through it, while a half filled glass of bourbon sat atop the coffee table ready to be sipped slowly. 

“Aw thank you.” You couldn’t help but blush red, your darling always knew what to say. “I was going to ask if you wanted to join me in the Blue Parrot lounge for a drink or two. Maybe keep Liz company?”

James inhaled from his pipe before answering. “That sounds quite appealing. I suggest you put on more appropriate garments.” He stated.


After James suggested you change was when you parted ways and he told you he’d meet you at the Blue Parrot lounge. Surprisingly, you arrived there before him, so you made yourself cozy at the bar.

Not even ten minutes later, a stranger takes a seat beside you. It confused you a bit since there were a lot of empty bar stools.

“Next drink is on me, gorgeous.” He refers to you.

You glare at him for a second, then look away to face Liz. She shoots you a ‘oh no’ type of look. “No thank you. I’m with someone.”

“Boyfriend huh?” The stranger frowns jokingly. “Well I don’t see him around. I insist.” He decided to be ballsy and grasped your wrist, but you immediately denied it. It was perfect timing too because James shows up, standing right behind the guy, basically breathing on the back of his neck. You glanced at James, then back at the desperate man. He definitely was in trouble now.

“Trust me. I’m WITH someone.” You implied. James grabs onto the man’s shoulder who twitched from being surprised.

“If my queen says she is with someone, I suggest you listen.” James said with widened eyes.

“Really? Mr. 1920s? Cane and all?” The stranger chuckled while giving James a disgusted elevator look. James, on the other hand, was giving him a death stare, his hand clenching his cane.

You raised your eyebrows, sipping on your alcoholic beverage while keeping the dozens of liquor bottles displayed as your view. Liz continued on wiping down the bar table. You both knew where this was going so you laid back and minded your own business while James takes care of this.

“This is a joke. I’m out of here.” The man scoffed, then shrugged his shoulders. “You’re not pretty enough for the trouble.” He attempted to walk away but before he could take another step, James pulls out the knife hidden in his cane and stabs the guy in the back who wanted to screech in pain but he couldn’t.

He instantly fell to the floor and dropped dead. It was as if James knew the right spot to stab him. You quickly glared at the dead body, then fixed your gaze onto your beloved James. “Thank you. He was annoying.” You said.

“Of course, dearest.” James replied, taking a seat where the dead man was once sitting. He made sure to take your hand into his, leaving a sweet kiss at your knuckles.

“I guess I’ll go find Miss Evers then.” Liz said with her nose in the air. Miss Evers was always willing to clean up after you and James.

Now you can’t wait to thank James later in the bedroom.

Another month of fics! These are some of the stand-out ones for me this month, and not all of them are exactly new, but excellent nonetheless. I’ve been cleaning out my to-read list, and I’ve found some absolute gems!

If you like Hamilton then give “In The Heights” a try

I’m seeing a lot of non-musical listening people loving Hamilton so I feel I must direct them to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s OTHER amazing musical “In the Heights” 

My absolute favorite musical, it touches on topics like gentrification, community ties, city life in New York,

 preserving culture and identity in a place where you feel both at home but unwelcome, 

and a whole lot of Latin-based cultural quirks that I as a Filipino found to be extremely familiar, 

like reactions to extremes of heat in the summer, hardworking and tired people, 

that one street vendor who goes around selling his wares like a trooper on hot days, 

that one old lady matriarch of the community who everybody considers their grandma, 

responsibility to family, the pressure of one kid from a poor community to be educated and to go far not just for themselves but for the entire community, 

the gossip from the chattering ladies at the local salon, 

every excuse you can get to party and eat and drink and sing and dance you gotta take it, 

inviting the whole barrio to eat at your place during a celebration, etc etc ad infinitum 

The music is ridiculously good and energetic and gorgeous with a very engaging Latin flare 

and amazing raps written and performed by our favorite Lin-Manuel

and the drama is so powerful it’ll bring tears to your eyes 

You might also see some familiar faces/hear some familiar voices as some of the actors in In The Heights perform in Hamilton, like Chris Jackson as George Washington, previously the rapping young entrepreneur Benny 

You can listen to the full soundtrack online, I believe there are tracks on Spotify and I don’t have iTunes but you can check there, and I also know all the tracks are on youtube if you can’t access either

It is my absolute favorite musical of all time, it’s fun and funny and triumphant and heartbreaking and utterly beautiful and I highly recommend it. 

Well thanks to everyone reblogging my post about being close to my next hundred literally within the day i am now at 1800 so i figured i’d do a mini follow forever! 

Like i said this is a mini follow forever so these are pretty much my absolute favorites (aka the all stars) :

americanflagelin // anze-kopistar // blackhawks-shuffle // bunny-benny // coach-qs-stache // craawford // dontbesaad // daddyseabrook // dunkankeith // enforcechicago // goallagher-galchenpuck // hockeyismyreligon // hottscartnell // iloveshinpads65 // kimmoforever // krisbryants // marchandmad // massholehackey // mo-gardiner // nyrqurlforev // petitereveries / rvrbata // savemecareyprice // shawzys-little-mutt // somekindofhockeyblog // stale-sandcastle // stlouisramz // t-o-ews // teenagekane // teuvotamborine // themutt65 // toewscrosby // troubaa // young-mullet-enthusiast //

thank you all so much you’re amazing! i’m hoping to get to 2k by the end of the playoffs (which probably wont happen) and when i do then i’ll post another one that will probably be longer :) 

I can’t believe i reached 1K. The hockey fandom on here means so much to me! My confidence has gone up a 100000% since joining it. Before I couldn’t even make a text post and now i get anon’s telling me to stop making text posts cause i’m so annoying hahah. 

But seriously i love all of you.

~special stars~

smallchinesegirl –> She’s basically my best friend. We spent the past two summers basically living together. One time when my parents were gone for the weekend she came over just to cook me food. She’s in england for school and i’m so proud of her and how well she’s doing :’). Everyone should follow her, her blog isn’t hockey but she’s the bomb.

hawkeytime –> I’ve known her since middle school. She’s probably one of the smartest people i ever met. I didn’t even knew she liked hockey until i moved away after my sophomore year but ever since we’ve climbed mountains together and read each others ridiculous fics. All of our conversations are pretty embarrassing. Also we’re married. so yeah.

chitownhockey –> She’s the best. Like the absolute best. We’re talking like heavy duty best here. She listens to my bullshit, she helps me study, edits my essays and puts up with me when i’m cranky. she’s just so super duper awesome i swear.

phthylo-tides –> My soulmate basically. She’s been in and out of my life since 5th grade but i’ve loved her even when she was gone. When we go weeks without seeing each other it’s like it’s nothing. Also she was in love with Nathan Horton for a bit and that’s not something anyone could blame her for.
