trying something new here. this is my first ever original story i’ve written and i really love it and want to share it! (tagging @clearascountryair @marvelthismarvelthat @buckysbears @bioforensics AND @inevitablyfitzsimmons for reading this and betaing and @superirishbreakfasttea, @lapiccolina @bookedbyfandoms because you guys said you would read it if i posted and I LIKE VALIDATION )

We talk for a while


I have just pulled out yesterday’s leftovers from the refrigerator when someone knocks at the door.

‘Knocks’ probably isn’t the right word. ‘Knocks’ suggests that I was expecting someone, maybe my parents arriving—cooing and boisterous—excited to see how their daughter’s changed her childhood home. Or maybe a boyfriend, bringing homemade apple pie for dessert and cuddling and maybe something more.

But my parents are gone, I don’t have a boyfriend, and I hate apple pie.

And whoever was at my door was banging on it so hard and so urgently that for a moment I feared it was the police, even though the police probably wouldn’t knock at all.

“Coming!” I call over the noise as I make my way to the front, clicking my tongue when instead of stopping the pounding just seems to grow faster and harder.

I crack open the door and peer outside even though it’s almost too dark to see anything anyway. “Hello?”

The overhead light automatically clicks on and everything is illuminated.

jong-fetti  asked:

did u meet minho? are u guys best friends now?

I JUST MET HIM AGAIN AT TIMES SQUARE LESS THAN AN HOUR AGO ;; holy shit i cant believe he’s so cute in real life, i came up behind him, tapped him on his arm twice, and asked for his autograph because i know they dont allow photos and he was startled because i was speaking so fast but he saw the album and pen and he understood and grabbed it and went “whats your name?” so he could spell it (like holy shit choi minho just asked me what my name is) and i said “Casey” and he wrote “K-” and at first i didnt want to correct him but i was so shaken i did by accident and i was like “actually its a c!” and he went 

“Oh Sorry!” in THE CUTEST VOICE IVE EVER HEARD 

and i freaked out inwardly because wtf minho just apologized to me

and he was smiling his signature minho smile in front of my face ok and then when he finished he said “thank you” cutely to me and started backing away and i wanted to let him know how much i appreciated it but i didnt know what to do so i just attempted to say “thank you” in korean and bowed really fast and he did a lil’ bow back

and basically this was the best day of my life so far and the manager gestured at my friend not to take photos but they still got this photo of me and minho im shaking

track name | welcome 2 l.a. [feat. casey k & mike ant]

seven.august.twentytwelve

doesn’t matter where you’re from, cali gives love to everyone.

this one is for mini. i know he misses l.a. and i can’t think of a better ‘feel good’ l.a. track. the song has a great piano kick to it and the hook isn’t annoying or too popish; scipio [new to me] also does a great job of keeping the flow nice and mellow. for everyone craving a little bit of cali in their day - have a listen.
