captain morgan pose

Has somebody written a fic where Chowder, Farmer, Nursey, and Dex do a stereotypical Florida spring break? 

They go boogey boarding at the beach, go dancing at clubs and visit Margaritaville where they drink margaritas the size of their heads. 

Farmer accidentally enters some beach volleyball tournament and wins while the guys cheer her on and celebrate with tequila shots. She wins a bottle of rum, so they immediately go out and buy several two liter bottles of Coke and drain it in one night because they can’t take it back on the plane. 

They have sandcastle making competitions (Nursey and Dex vs Farmer and Chowder) which ends with Dex getting buried in the sand because the fucker has a level on his keychain and using that is cheating. 

Chowder buys a cheap plastic snorkel and spends an entire afternoon snorkeling while Farmer takes photos of sea turtle nests. They all write their names in the sand and take silly pictures to send to the rest of their friends back home.

They do the Captain Morgan pose every. single. place. they. can. It becomes an entire album on Facebook. 

Derek buys a bunch of bottles to fill with sand and seashells to make for his sister and his moms, running out into the ocean several times shrieking “COME BACK” when a particular shell he wanted gets swept up in the tide. Miraculously he only slipped once. 

Dex nearly gets them thrown out of a restaurant for excessive complaining about the lobster. If you’re gonna spring for lobster, it better be damn good lobster and THIS WAS NOT DAMN GOOD LOBSTER. 

They go nuts at the chintzy souvenir stands, buying matching dudebro shell necklaces to wear ironically, fridge magnets that are also bottle openers, and novelty shotglasses. 

They come home and Dex is peeling and moaning in pain from sunburn, Nursey’s lost his sunglasses and somehow has seashells and sand in every pocket, Chowder’s broken the strap on his sandals and almost busted his braces on a giant airport Toblerone, and Caitlin’s ears have turned green from the shell earrings she bought and cracked her phone screen.

It was the best spring break ever.

“Bits, it’s Haus tradition!” Shitty exclaims, warming to his subject. He’s probably about five seconds from striking a Captain Morgan pose with his foot on a chair. “It’s got to be done!”

“Okay,” Chowder says, unexpectedly. He bolts upright. There is a gigantic red mark on his forehead from the table. “Yeah, okay! Let’s get hammered!!”

Summary:

It wasn’t the way Holster had envisioned finally getting a date with his d-man partner.

(Not that he’d ever envisioned getting a date with his d-man partner, because what they had was fucking good enough already, and it wasn’t like romantic relationships were any better or worse than platonic ones, or any more important, and he was happy with Ransom as his best friend, he really was, and he didn’t need anything else.)

It wasn’t the way Holster had envisioned finally getting a date with his d-man partner, but it was fun anyway.

While trying to be a good bro and help his best friend get over his recent breakup with March, Holster accidentally sets them up on a double date with two girls who are already dating… each other.

What is the correct response to this revelation?

Fake dating. Obviously.

Relationships: Adam “Holster” Birkholtz/Justin “Ransom” Oluransi
Additional Tags: slowest of burns, fluffy fluff fluff, also if u know me irl ur not allowed to read this lolol, its not v explicit but like…….for me it is lololol
Summary:

When Ransom meets Adam Birkholtz for the first time he’s wearing a t-shirt that’s half a size too small for him, jeans that are worn out in the ratty way, and Birkenstocks that look about a thousand years old. His glasses are crooked on his nose and he introduces himself with a loud, booming laugh even though Ransom hasn’t said anything particularly funny. Ransom thinks it’s the kind of laugh that moves mountains, full and round and beautiful.

“Everyone calls me Holster,” Adam says, squeezing Ransom’s hand before he lets it go.

“Cool,” Ransom’s smile back is a reflex, the easiest, most natural response to Holster’s toothy grin. “I’m Ransom.”

“Sick nickname,” Holster tosses an arm around Ransom’s shoulder’s without warning. He is very large and very warm, and his breath smells like cinnamon. “You know what, Ransom? I think we’re gonna be tight.”

Ransom laughs, it rises up in him fast and urgent, like excess happiness spilling from his lips, “sure, bro. Whatever you say.”

Summary:

“So tell me,” Justin’s mother says, all business, “is your boy going to propose?”

“What, Jack?” Justin says, and doesn’t really think much of it, because his mother eats up the details of Jack and Bitty and JackandBitty like Holster eats up rom-coms.

His mother sighs, and he can practically hear her rolling her eyes. “No, baby, I meant Adam.”

Combeferre bit his lip, eyes narrowed as he thought the proposal through. “On one condition,” he said after a moment.

“What’s that?”

“You do the same.”
Combeferre and Grantaire enter a bet. Even though it lasts only twelve days, the consequences are far greater than they could ever have expected.

*CASUALLY HIDES FACE*

I had too much fun at the PRCC yesterday okay.

Made new friends and screamed, streetpassed like 70+ people, felt like a cool celebrity with the many people who wanted to take pictures with this nerd, wow.

I FOUND MILORD AND THE NOISES I MADE WERE INHUMAN.

All in all, going to the PRCC was worth it despite the huge hour and a half line outside in the 90 degree Caribbean sun. No regrets, none! :’D
