Joey/Chris, Chris/Howie, Joey/Howie, 5k

There’s no turning back, and there are no shades of grey, because he’s Joey Fatone, out in public at a gay bar full of gay men with his gay friend because they are both so very gay and touching in public being gay and drinking gay drinks from a gay bartender as other gay men watch and Joey does not know if he is ready for this. He’s spent his whole life telling himself that he is not ready for this.


Joey comes out.

(alternate reality fic where Joey is gay and Lance is straight; Joey’s coming out is partially based on Lance’s own experience)




who wants to read some popslash i wrote almost ten years ago? probably no one, but i just archived an old story on ao3 if anyone actually would be interested in that  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

if the op you’re about to reblog from has a harry url and you don’t personally know them please check their blog first because chances are extremely high they’re a nasty het or anti and i’m tired of seeing blogs on my dash who wish i would choke or die just because i think closeted boybanders are still a thing

anonymous asked:

You know how people ship members of K-pop boybands or things like that? What if in Idol K world the same thing happens to Munakata and Fushimi? There's fanfic, fanart, Tumblrs of photographs of them together. To keep up appearances, they're told to stay close to each other in pictures, get matching cars, casually share sodas, etc. Fushimi thinks it's a load of shit for marketing purposes only, but he really has this crush on Munakata, and he doesn't like thinking it's just manufactured.

I could totally see this happening in Idol K world, there’s probably massive fan wars over whether Munakata/Fushimi or Yata/Fushimi is the true pairing and the fans have all kinds of conspiracy theories as to which is true, like Fushimi wore a blue watch that means he’s married to Munakata but his red tie means he’s seeing Yata on the side and the collared shirt means he’s actually with Akiyama but the low-heeled boots means he’s dating Hidaka and there’s just an entire community of fans dead convinced as to who Fushimi’s one true love is. Fushimi for his part finds it super annoying, like maybe that’s even part of the reason why he split from Yata and Homra’s label and went to Scepter 4, he kept seeing all these things online about his and Yata’s relationship that made him feel like the only worth he had in Homra was to be Yata’s secret boyfriend and he got sick of it, wanting to be seen for his own talent. Except of course no sooner has he joined Scepter 4 than the rumors start popping up about him and Munakata.

Munakata and Fushimi quickly become a very popular ship and of course the label wants to take advantage of it so the two of them start getting thrown together quite a lot. Munakata makes it very clear to Fushimi what the reasoning is, like the first time they have to do a photoshoot together Munakata asks Fushimi to change sides of the picture and come sit next to him, which puts Fushimi practically on his lap. Fushimi complains about it being uncomfortable but he smiles for the camera (well, not quite smiles but not a frown either, he’s a professional and he’ll be almost happy for the fans). Later on though he’s randomly scouring the internet because part of his job in the company also involves handling the social media end of things, making sure leaks don’t happen and taking care of trolls on official websites and beefing up their network’s security and such and he ends up coming upon the picture with everyone else cropped out except him and Munakata, with text about their secret crush. Fushimi clicks his tongue and looks disgusted and that’s when Munakata walks by and notes that it went just as planned. Fushimi’s confused until Munakata explains that this is a very calculated move at raising their popularity, as he’s found nothing sells merchandise like rumors. Fushimi thinks it’s stupid but has to admit that it works, and it’s only after Munakata leaves that he momentarily wonders why his stomach dropped a little when Munakata said the closeness was for show only.

So after that the two of them keep spending more time together, always posing in photos together and singing close on stage and Munakata even takes Fushimi out from time to time, like they go get ice cream and sit in the park while the paparazzi take a million photos from the bushes. Munakata seems unruffled as always as he discusses all the ways this is the perfect marketing tool while Fushimi just glares into his ice cream because he’s started becoming aware that it’s not really a ruse on his side, he is feeling things for Munakata, and he hates it because he knows it’s all fake and no way would Munakata ever even consider him if it wasn’t raising their popularity so much. Then maybe one day Fushimi’s a little sick but tries to go on stage anyway, Munakata stops him and puts a hand to his forehead and is being all loving and concerned while all the fangirls and press nearby quietly squee. Fushimi gets pissed, thinking this is all an act on Munakata’s part, and storms back into his dressing room. Munakata follows and Fushimi just snaps at him to go away, he’s not Munakata’s arm candy here to up his fame. That’s when Munakata admits that yes, he did set this all up so their star power would increase but he also did it because it gave him a convenient excuse to be close to Fushimi and show his affection openly without having it questioned.

Dea’s 2016 Haikyuu!! ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE FIC REC LIST

So… 2016 is over and I have to say I read less Haikyuu!! fic than I did last year. Most importantly I mostly stopped going through the tag by newest and simply read what was written by my friends or linked by them.

Consequently I’m less confident in my reccing this year (compared to last year’s list), but nonetheless this was an amazing year for fic readers and I am eternally grateful to all the writers providing us with gorgeous fanfic, no matter if you made it on a list like mine or not.

All the love to fic authors, and may your new year be better than the last!


Jaywalkers series by @sturlsons
Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei and many others, G-M

A collection of stories the morals of which all amount to: if something can go wrong, it will. Also, if something can go right, it also will.

Alternatively, that one college AU where everyone fucks all the shit up.

Starting with the obvious stuffs today. Funny enough I also put this series on last year’s list and it has since only gotten better. Not only is it hilarious as all hell, it also manages to rip your heart out and then heal it at once with the most beautiful romance.

breaking pattern, breaking ground by @pommetree
Akaashi Keiji/Ennoshita Chikara, T

“He thought of progress, of going further, over a silent breakfast with Kazu and Hisashi. This is, technically, already a greater distance than he’s ever been. But as Chikara took the final bite of his tuna onigiri and waits now as one face in a milling crowd, he knows he wants more.”

The king of all music AUs. I doubt I’ll ever see and orchestra fic this perfect.

Character Development by @silvercistern
Akaashi Keiji/Bokuto Koutarou, E

“That’s some kinda gratitude. I get the ideal guy to take you to prom, and you act like he’s not even here? What happened to my painfully polite little brother?”
“I doubt I’d let him take me to the hospital if I were bleeding to death.”
Keiji needs a date. Bokuto needs dating lessons. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

This frickin fic, dude. Blew me away. The characterisation is absolutely incredible and the PLOT! Every character has their own point, every happenstance a reason, every sentence a beauty to it. I wish books were written like this.

feel love run through my blood by @katzuyas
Hinata Shouyou/Kuroo Tetsurou, E

A tiny kiss was pressed to the side of his head and Shouyou snickered.
“You’re a sap,” he said, amused, but his heart was trembling at the gentleness of the gesture.
“Of course,” Kuroo replied as if it was the most obvious of things. “You wouldn’t have me any other way.”
Shouyou chuckled, pulling back to look at him. Kuroo had a small smile on his face, just a quirk of his lips, really, but it made Shouyou melt, like it always did. Maybe he was the real sap in this relationship…

So this was a gift for me and let me tell you. Getting something as perfect as this is the best fucking feeling ever. It is romantic and smart and hot and all in all so so lovely, please do yourself a favour and read it!

Silica Sand by @lilienpasse
Azumane Asahi/Nishinoya Yuu, G

Overworked, over-stressed programmer Azumane Asahi works on the top floor of a Shinjuku skyscraper. Nervous around his coworkers and terrified of the long drop on the other side of the window, Asahi falls into a miserable routine, only to have it broken one day by a simple message on the outside of the glass.

I admit, this was published a year ago, but I’ll be damned if I overlook it now!It is a beautiful story of two very peculiar people coming together and influencing each other, with such delicate characterisations and the language!! A dream.

I built you a home in my heart by @newamsterdame
Kozume Kenma/Kuroo Tetsurou, M

Five years after high school— what changes, what doesn’t, and what really matters, in the end.

I don’t even have the words to describe my joy over this fic. It is an incredible story, about learning yourself and learning others through love and devotion and I have read it so many times. And cried every time again.

to the beat of my heart by kittebasu
Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei, E

Former boyband member and acting idol Tsukishima Kei’s continued entanglement with Nekoma’s lead singer Kuroo Tetsurou is just a series of missed steps in choreography he can’t quite master. (It doesn’t help at all that Kuroo Tetsurou makes a habit of constantly changing the music.)

I just… ugh LOVE this fic from the bottom of my heart. Boybands aren’t usually my thing but I absolutely can’t get enough of this, dammit. This is such well written romance, grown up but not, with so much passion and I just can’t get over it!

Kooks by @crollalanzaa
Sawamura Daichi/Sugawara Koushi, T

As a volleyball player, Sugawara Koushi was used to competition, but it was nothing compared to the competitive mums at his local Baby!Splash swimming class. He can stand his ground and even laugh, until a vile insinuation stops him in his tracks.
He knows he must fight, but sometimes it’s hard when the whole world and even your mother thinks you’re odd.

This fic has a very special place in my heart, what made the decision which of Carole’s fics to put here surprisingly easy. It’s incredibly well written, as always, but I get caught up in the emotions it conveys if I even so much as think about it, and that’s quite a feat. It tells such a strong message!

Chase the Horizon with Me by boxofwonder
Akaashi Keiji/Ennoshita Chikara, G

Their meeting is not fate, per se, that would be too tacky, too grand for the way they met.
If Akaashi had to put any name to it, some kind of descriptor, looking back, it’s … a stroke of luck. Pure, wayward, stupidly fortunate coincidence.

Maybe I’m biased because this fic takes place in Germany, my home, but to be honest I don’t think you can go wrong with this author. This has so much emotion, so much genuine love for the characters and their struggles and their story, it makes my heart bloom every time I read it.

shut up and dance by @mysecretfanmoments
Kozume Kenma/Kuroo Tetsurou, E

AU where Kuroo and Kenma have never met before… but then, sometimes all it takes is one glance. (And some encouragement from friends… and a few games of Smash… and half an inexpertly prepared drink from Lev.)

Man, I am so glad this story exists and you two thought of it. It’s such an interesting take on the character’s relationship and behaviours. Val is probably the only one to manage to make it work so beautifully and elegantly!

Pieces of Peace by @franeridan
Bokuto Koutarou/Kuroo Tetsurou, G

The apartment was situated in a nice part of Tokyo – the bus stop was only a block away, five minutes of walk were enough to reach the metro station, there was a conbini just around the corner, it was that kind of place.
It was also on the highest floor of a mostly new building, with tall windows and spacious rooms, and was big enough to easily accommodate Kuroo, Kenma and both their ridiculously-wide-winged Animae. It was so good, he had had troubles believing he’d lucked out to that point.
Which had made it to be expected, really, when Kenma had avoided eye contact and mumbled a barely audible “I can’t move in with you anymore”.
Of course it had happened.

I have read this fic so many frickin times. Probably the most out of all the ones in this list. It surprises me a bit because I usually don’t deal well with soulmate AUs, but this just has the most DELICIOUS mutual pining I can imagine on top of being excellently and lovingly characterised. It absolutely kills.

Being Human by @shions-heart
Kozume Kenma/Kuroo Tetsurou, M

Kuroo Tetsurou is a witch’s apprentice living above The Black Cat, a magic supply store where he also works. When his master leaves him for an assignment in China, and his best friends Oikawa Tooru and Iwaizumi Hajime abandon him for a working vacation on the beach, Kuroo commits the taboo and summons a demon to help him in the shop and help drive back the loneliness that lingers in the shadows.
Only the demon he summons isn’t the type of demon he expects, and he finds himself stuck with it with no idea of how to return it to where it belongs.

There is absolutely NO WAY one can go wrong with Sy’s fics. She is the queen of kuroken and I am so thankful that she blesses us with gems like this. Incredibly plotted, characterised, worded, this is an all around masterpiece!

The Boy and a Lopsided Moon by porridgemilk
Bokuto Koutarou/Kuroo Tetsurou, T

Kuroo learns, one day, that there is a thing known as relationship therapists.

Fuck this sounds like a dream. Such incredible visuals, it’s practically poetry. But then again so real! I can’t get enough of it.

laugh at my expense by @fyolette
Akaashi Keiji/Kuroo Tetsurou, T

Outsmarting yourself and other assorted misfortunes, a comedy in two acts.

This fic made me laugh, tear up, clutch at my sides and my heart. For a good time go here, you will NOT regret it. Goddamnit.

deus ex by @downmoonwrites
Akaashi Keiji/Kuroo Tetsurou, T

The first time he saw the sky was the night Kuroo dragged him out of the City.
Staggering along with Kuroo’s arm around his waist, his brain still too fuzzy to quite comprehend what was going on, he had looked up. He saw tiny, innumerable pinpricks of light, shining clear and beautiful, free from the cover of the Dome.
“What are those?” he said. His voice sounded like rust, the slow grinding of a machine that’s never been used screeching into utility once again.
“The stars,” Kuroo had answered.

Ah yes. The fic that wil remind you that you can under no circumstances forget that ficwriters are untrustworthy. BROKE MY FUCKING HEART
AND I LOVE IT. Seriously. It’s soo good.

Wide Eyes Don’t Bother Staring by @xwynn
Bokuto Koutarou/Kuroo Tetsurou, T

And you feel dumb, downright idiotic that it takes you all this time to realize it as Kuroo laughs and grins, eyes alight when he nudges your hand with his under the table, that the feelings you harbor for your friend isn’t just platonic.

A little bit to relish for the end. This is exactly my jam, and one of THE most atmospheric pieces I’ve ever read. Almost too much to comprehend.


I WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND PARTY HARD!!

If you wish for more recs, I have them (and a little talking about my writing) in my rambles tag!

1. Destroy the picture in your head of how you think its all supposed to be. That picture is an illusion. Listen to me, there is no such thing as the best. There is no such thing as a right way to live. It’s an ideal. You have to execute the model of utopia that you have created in your mind, because how do you expect yourself to live up to an imagined place where everything is perfect? You do not want set yourself up for failure. There is not a right way to live and there will never be a right way to live. Once you destroy that illusion of the perfect way to live, you will be much happier.

2. You were born with the ability to say ‘yes’ to things, which means you were also born with the ability to say ‘no.’ Remind yourself this.

3. There will be times when nothing about yourself makes sense. We’re all strangers to ourselves. There are times when it is okay to question everything about our life because we are constantly changing. Instead of letting these times breed into loneliness, give yourself the ability to let these times provide you with strength.

4. It will always be okay to love yourself. Never let anyone tell you differently.

5. Just because other people may have it worse, doesn’t mean your problems are not valid. You are allowed to be upset. Never let anyone tell you otherwise.

6. Liking the cafeteria food at school does not make you weird. I promise.

7. People might tell you your love for a band or for a celebrity or for a certain song is a phase. They will probably be right. But it is important to find the things that bring you joy and to become an enthusiast about everything you love. If you are intrested in something love with everything you have. Love things passionately and wholeheartedly. Don’t compromise your love for something because of what other people say. If it makes you happy, embrace it with open arms.

8. There’s no such thing as a good side. People are full of imperfections which end up turning into such interesting photographs.

9. When people sense that they are being heard, they will always give you something worth hearing. Any time you talk to anyone about something that they love they’re their most beautiful. Never put someone down while they’re telling you about something they love. It’s a really cool gift to get to talk to people about that.

10. I want you to find someone that fills you with light. Be with someone that makes you laugh until milk is squirting out of your nose. Be with someone who falls in love with the way your nose is a little crooked at the end. I hope that in your lovers’ eyes you see raindrops falling down out of your childhood window. I hope that in your lovers’ arms you smell fireplaces and apple cider, and that you feel at home. One day you will find someone to love that reminds you that home is not a place, but that home is a feeling. But most importantly, I hope that your first love is yourself.

anonymous asked:

Dude, I LOVED FIVEAWESOMEGAYS! I kinda miss those days of YouTube... Could I hear some more thoughts on them and/or your early YouTube experiences? Who were your favs?

Sure! Let’s see, I watched the vlogbrothers, like, religiously. I also watched sortedFood, which is the only one I occasionally checked on when I wasn’t really watching youtube at all. And I loved charlieissocoolike, you deserve a drink (kind of on and off and way more than my drunk kitchen), and, unfortunately, nerimon and all their little side projects like that boyband thing. Uhm, also mmm, i think his name was like whataboutadam or something of that ilk? And of course Tyler Oakley.

So my thoughts on them are mainly that capitalism is a wild and powerful thing, hahaha. To watch what was essentially people pursuing a hobby and maybe making a little spending money, and then leave for a couple years, and come back to people being millionaires? Off of youtube? Is wild to me. 

Like I probably could have been actual buddies with Dan and Phil, had I been a commenting type of person back then and now they’re like, legitimately famous. And also very restricted in the kind of content they can make. Like them, and just about every other youtuber, so that’s no shade to DnP. 

So, its great in some ways, I love that some people have been able to build really successful off youtube and probably make change in some people’s lives (with the huge caveat that I’m disappointed but not surprised that the vast majority of these people are white dudes that are mostly straight). But idk. Its also a little sad in that the youtube that I knew, with its small communities and its really close creator-to-fan contact is harder to find now because of that professionalization.

lol that’s probably way more of a downer than you expected, so I’ll leave off with this song. I remember when it came out and it still gets stuck in my head sometimes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hj1GIIMp8E

A really really long and meaningless post about the blue cult arc and how crazy it was

Okay so i was pretty behind on the manga bc i usually wait for the paper volumes to come out, but (for obvious reasons) i caught up and i just wanna throw my thoughts out there bc i don’t know reading those chapters was a fuckin wild ride.

Also this post has no coherence or purpose it’s honestly just me saying words.

Keep reading

perhaps-trees-and-tea  asked:

the louvre + sober ?

the louvre: three favorite artists?

my three favorite music artists are Khalid, LP, and Halsey. Khalid, bc he reminds me of old school r&b music and his songs speak to my soul, LP because her music is simple yet packs a punch with her lyrics, and Halsey, because she’s so innovative with her sound and she’s very hip hop/beats which i dig. 

sober: what’s one of your biggest vices/guilty pleasures?

one of my guilty pleasures as of lately has been BTS. I knew i would be into it bc i get so into boyband type things and i never knew there was a boyband-ish kpop group i could gravitate to so quickly. I love their music, it makes me wanna dance, their lyrics are very cute and i honestly love singing to the songs and just guessing how it sounds in Korean :’) so yeah guilty pleasure is defo BTS.
