shoot us some bradley headcanons, and if possible the basis for them

Oh boy here we go…

  1. His bitterness is actually a cover-up of something and he’s using it as a coping mechanism. I do believe that he was bullied as a kid or he comes from a family that didn’t make it clear that his feelings are important enough. Or both.
  2. Needs attention as a form of validation. Milo usually takes that attention away from Bradley and it’s not Milo’s fault but Bradley’s jealousy is completely justified.
  3. In the second episode he hears from a random stranger “YOU will be my leader” and it’s enough for him to feel a little bit valid (”He saw something in me.”). Which means he’s ready to seek validation from literally anybody and that can be really dangerous, someone help this poor kid.
  4. Incredibly low self-esteem. If something comes in his way he doesn’t know how to fight it and, again, uses his bitterness to cope. (He’s being interrupted a lot and doesn’t know how to get people’s attention back)
  5. He believes that everyone is (or can be turned) against him. Again, it can happen to you when you were bullied a lot. (Bradley: “In! Your! Face! Other people!” Mort: “I’m on your team!”). He has trust issues for sure.
  6. His crush on Melissa wasn’t the love on the first sight. It started slowly when he realized she doesn’t find him annoying. And then it developed more because she was being nice to him. (Bradley: “Oh, hey Melissa! Mind if I join you?” Melissa (with a smile and a welcoming gesture): “Sure, Bradley, have a seat.” Notice that she later doesn’t look weirded out when he freaks out, she’s ok with him being like that. I bet he’s appreciating that.)
  7. He doesn’t actually believe he has any chances with Melissa at all. (“So Melissa, what’s up with your boy [Milo]?”) Again, low self-esteem.
  8. He is afraid of his feelings for Melissa. (“You sure you don’t wanna join our team, Melissa? I named it "Team Melissa”. Not after you. Different Melissa.“ - after taking a step forward he immediately took a step back, he also may be afraid that he’s gonna ruin it.)
  9. He feels lonely af and his biggest fear is being rejected.

As you can see my headcanons are not the happy ones…

Random Melissa headcanons:

She currently doesn’t have any crushes and doesn’t seek for any romance. She considers Bradley as her friend and enjoys their friendly rivalry. She likes making bets with him. She did notice him acting strange occasionally and she wonders what’s up with that but doesn’t really feel like she’s the right person to ask.

You and Brad met through Twitter and you are in a relationship for nearly 6 months now. But you never met each other in real life. You knew about his career and bc he is afraid of you getting hate you nevee published your relationship.

One day you call Brad.
“Hey beautiful! How are you?” Brad says happily.
“Not that good babe..”
“Whats wrong?” He asks you. XAre you feeling ill?“
"No.. Not at all. Its just..”
“Its what?”
“I cant do this whole thing anymore. We never saw each other and in all your interviews you say you are single. I just want to have a normal relationship.”
You both pauses for a few seconds. Than he says: “That does mean that we broke up now?”
“Yeah.. Im sorry Brad. Your music is more important than me. I knew that all the time. And it was always okay till now. I just cant this anymore. Sorry Brad. Hope you make it.”
Before he couldnt answer anything you end the call.“

3 weeks after the phone call Brad and the other lads come to your hometown.
"Braaaadley?? Whats wrong?? You look so sad today.”,Tristan asks.
“Its (Y/N) hometownm she is some were in this town. I cant stop thinking about her.”
“Did you knew where she lives exactly?”
Brad shakes his head. “No.”
“Maybe she comes tonight?” Tristan tries to cheer him up.

~After theconcert~

“She wasnt there Tris..” Brad says with tears in his eyes.
“Im sorry mate.. Come on.. Lets go to the bus. Sleep a bit. You’ll feel better than.”
Tristan tooks his hand and they went to the bus together.

You knew that they had a concert tonight. You didnt attended there. But you still wanted to see Brad so you waited near at the bus.
As you see Brad and Tristan came along tears start to roll down your face.
