It’s rare I post a photo on here with a celeb these days because I swear to god some random people just loved to hate that time I met Tom Hiddleston at a party and posted it on here (like you don’t know me and you deffo wasn’t at the party to gtfo of here ya muggy little c*nts, excuse my French) last year.
Annnnnyway!! I just really wanted to share this one because it was at a charity event the other night and about a month before this I’d seen James McAvoy for the first time since Ruling Class and to my shock he actually remembered me and my friend, asked how we were and told us he was doing more theatre next year. Then at this event the other evening we had spotted him arrive but wanted to play it cool. At one point we walked right past each other and I could tell he was looking but avoided eye contact but I know he recognised us because then when my friend behind me past, she must have made eye contact because I heard him say ‘hey’ and something to the effect of ‘you’re here’ but we didn’t stop and talk.
Finally, later in that evening, after I’d had a load of champagne courage he was returning inside after going outside for a bit and I just intercepted him with a light backhanded slap on his chest/shoulder (I really need to learn not to do that oops) and then the following happened:
Me: Hey James!
James: Hey you! *holds out hand to shake*
Me: *goes to fist bump instead because that’s how I roll*
James: Nah, come here! *proceeds to pull me in for a hug*
And inner me is freaking the fuck out because James McAvoy just hugged me like I was his bro (and I am happy with being his bro if anything) That’s when I also realised I’ve got to not screw up now and come across like a major fangirl, I’ve got to act chill AHHH but I somehow managed.
So, then I spoke to him for what seemed like forever about how we’ve both been, theatre and other stuff. It’s so easy to get caught up talking to this wonderful man that I nearly forgot to bring my mate in on the convo but then I got him to wish her a happy birthday and we continued to talk about theatre and stuff. (Theatre is my passion of you hadn’t noticed oops) And then he was so nice with taking photos afterwards and I legit feel like I’ve upgraded from random James fan to random acquaintance that James recognises but not in a bad way! Then later that night I went to talk to him again and he took some classic James McAvoy selfies with us, because he’s a photo beast when he gets hold of your phone!
Oh and he also remembered telling us a month before he was doing theatre because turns out he probably isn’t now until 2018 because everyone is doing he show he wanted to do next year already!
You finally arrived at the RFA’s annual Christmas charity party and you were nervous. It was your first year attending this event and the second you stepped onto the party grounds, you knew you had messed up.
You had on a floor-length champagne gown that molded your body beautifully and brought out the best of your features. The sweetheart neckline revealed your smooth skin and accented your collarbones nicely. The bodice of your gown was hugged with lace and the skirt hung beautifully with flecks of gold that glistened in the light. Your long brown locks were curled and twisted up into an elegant updo and finished with a pearl hair piece.
To anyone who says Robert should be more sensitive of Aaron’s feelings with regards to Rebecca:
I think Robert’s problem is literally the opposite to Aaron’s, in the sense that Robert trusts Aaron too much. In Robert’s mind, Aaron is the most honest person he knows. So in that sense, Robert believes that if something was really wrong or something was really troubling Aaron, Aaron would tell him.
So when Aaron says he’s fine with Rebecca, when Aaron offered Bex champagne and encouraged Robert to go talk to her that time, and when Aaron invited Bex to Charity’s party…Robert believed it. He trusts Aaron so much that he’s not reading between the lines like maybe he used to.
Robert has lied and schemed enough times in his life to spot when someone is lying and scheming. But he didn’t even question Aaron suddenly springing a surprise weekend away to Manchester, conveniently after Robert told him he had to go to an overnight meeting with Rebecca. Even though this is a stunt Robert would probably pull himself, he didn’t think for a second that Aaron had just randomly come up with it on the spot. Because that’s not what Aaron does. Robert doesn’t think Aaron would do something like that.
People have mentioned how Robert used to be so in tune to how Aaron was feeling (the stuff with Gordon, for example; Robert realised something was wrong when nobody else did). That’s because, at that point, Aaron was sort of a lone wolf and he was pushing everyone away. He was kinda a loner, in a sense, even though he’s always had a lot of family around him, he wasn’t letting anyone in at that point - and Robert knew that.
But it’s different now. Robron are living together, they’re engaged, they’re more open and honest with each other than they ever have been, and in Robert’s mind, I think he just assumes that if Aaron had a problem with anything, that he would tell him about it. Like I seriously believe that. I think Robert is so comfortable in their little family unit, and has so much faith in Aaron’s honesty, that the thought of Aaron shutting him out in any way is just beyond him.
Aaron has always been so honest with Robert. Even when he was messing up, like when he kidnapped Lachlan, he didn’t keep it from Rob. Right away he opened that car boot and showed Robert that he had Lachlan hidden away in there! He has always been pretty transparent and even though Aaron can push people away sometimes, for the most part he does wear his heart of his sleeve (he shows his emotions/feelings more than he expresses them with words).
So for Robert….like he’s aware Aaron has had an issue with Rebecca, but both those occassions were for specific reasons; First there was the kiss, which anyone would freak out over, but that was all resolved in Robert’s mind - and I think it was resolved for Aaron too, for the most part (or at least he thought it was). Robert explained why it happened and Aaron clearly accepted that (he seemed to have more issue with the fact that Robert tried to bust Lachlan out of jail). Then there was the mix-up with the birthday surprise. This time, Robert really was totally innocent, but I also think he totally understood how it looked to Aaron, which is why he wasn’t too angry about the surprise being ruined (as disappointed as he was!).
So in Robert’s eyes, while he knows Aaron has had an issue with Bex, it’s been more a case of specific situations - that were actually innocent and quickly resolved - as opposed to Aaron being insecure as a whole. Like, Robert has no idea the depth of Aaron’s issue with this - he thinks it’s just a couple of isolated misunderstandings and that’s that. He doesn’t know how deep in runs. He doesn’t know that it makes Aaron uncomfortable just knowing that Robert is in the same room as Rebecca.
So I think that’s why Robert lies to him next week; he wants a drink with his friend to celebrate something work-related going well. Which is totally fine and normal (and especially because Robert has NO FRIENDS, he’s going to want to cling on to the one he’s got) BUT he doesn’t want this to be yet another situation that Aaron misunderstands/takes the wrong way/reads too much into. So I think in Robert’s head, him keeping this meeting a secret *is* his way of being sensitive to Aaron’s feelings, because he doesn’t want Aaron to get the wrong end of the stick again.
I don’t think for a second Robert would lie to Aaron if he knew the extent of his paranoia/jealousy/insecurity. But Robert is oblivious to it and isn’t reading between the lines because he believes that Aaron would be totally honest with him if his feelings were running a lot deeper.
And I understand why Aaron is keeping it from Robert; because Aaron KNOWS he can trust Robert, he really does. But there’s a part of him that isn’t allowing himself to trust Robert. And because he’s got it wrong before, he doesn’t want to appear like a broken record by keeping going on about it. And Robert saying “we can’t keep doing this” after Aaron ruined his birthday surprise; that’s going to rattle him too. He doesn’t realise that if he just sat down and explained to his fiance exactly how he’s feeling, and the depths of it, that Robert would totally understand. And I also think Aaron is scared to truly admit to himself just how much all of this is getting to him.
So I seriously feel sorry for the both of them. I know some people aren’t happy with the fact that Aaron is going to turn to violence to vent his frustration, but unfortunately that’s just how Aaron is and how he always has been. He attacked Paddy when he had to face his sexuality, he attacked that man during the warehouse raid the Christmas before last because Gordon was back, and he’s going to attack Kasim because he feels his deep-rooted insecurities are going to sabotage his relationship - and there’s been other incidents in between all of that too. This is what Aaron does, and in a way I’m glad Emmerdale aren’t completely erasing that side of him. Even though Aaron has grown up a lot and is healthier than he used to be (for the most part), we’re all so aware that he still has quite a way to go, and that he does need some proper help in dealing with a lot of the (totally understandable) issues that he has.
But the good thing about it all kicking off next week is it’s really going to break the ice and bring all of this shit to the surface. It’s really going to make both Aaron and Robert face things properly and hopefully they will start dealing with it in a healthy way, together, as a couple.
So while I agree they could each do things a bit differently (Aaron should be honest; Robert shouldn’t lie to him next week), I understand them both. And I know once it’s come to the surface, they will deal with it…just as they always do :)
Monday 9th January: It is Charity’s surprise birthday party and Chas and Rebecca decorate the pub in anticipation. Chas is excited how embarrassing it will be for Charity but when it comes to party time, the pub is virtually empty. Will the big night be a damp squib? Chas rallies to buoy her cousin united in singledom.
Cain wants Chrissie’s share in the garage or says Lachlan will pay the price. Chas is pleased to see Aaron and Robert back. Thursday 12th January: Robert walks in on Jimmy and Nicola in an intimate moment. He tells Jimmy to get to the yard. Jimmy dissuades Nicola from taking a look at the books but Nicola has other ideas and wants future interest in the business.
Nicola’s fired up after her visit to the portakabin.
Friday 13th January: Rebecca uses Ross to take her mind off things when Chrissie stands her up. Chrissie fumes to walk in on them. Will Chrissie and Rebecca’s makeup be short lived and are their battle lines being redrawn?
Robert arrives at the office and is unimpressed to see Nicola barking orders. But can she gain his respect?*
she is the only artist ever to have a #1 hit in six consecutive decades, proving that she has longevity and is unlikely to get burned out in office
she publicly supports feminism, LGBT rights and Black Lives Matter
her Twitter account proves that she knows how to connect with the youths
incredible performer and public speaker
she has experience interacting in a political atmosphere due to her longtime support of the Democratic party and charity work with injured soldiers
she stands by her beliefs and doesn’t back down just to make a dollar or get publicity (for example she declined an invitation to perform at the 2014 Winter Olympics due to Russia’s anti-LGBT legislations)
she has struggled with dyslexia and possibly other learning disabilities, an experience that gives her an understanding of what learning disabled children deal with every day and how best to implement changes in the public school system
imagine the outfits
she could end every public address with a musical performance
Author note: Hello my lovely fellas, I’m here with Ethan imagine. I really enjoyed writing this, so I think y’all gonna like it. Maybe it’s long, but anyway enjoy and if you have any requests or ideas, just let me know!
passed, when my best friend Ethan asked me to go with him in fancy charity
party. At first I declined all his requests, but he didn’t give up and I
finally said “Yes” . Only reason why I didn’t wanted to go, because I don’t
feel good in my body. In charity party gonna be so many beautiful people,
especially girls who can catch Ethans attention and I was just afraid of this.
Everytime I felt like I’m not good enough for him.
„I hope you’re already done. I’m going to be at your place in 30minutes ;)“
„I‘m almost done.“
I send him
message back and put my phone down. I done my make-up and pierced my pearl
earrings. For the evening I put on tight, rose pastel color dress, which
perfectly accent my body (the dress is in picture). My heels were black and
they made my legs look a little bit longer. I curled my hair naturally and
scent myself with vanilla perfume. I looked at myself last time in the mirror
and walked downstairs. I got message from Ethan.
I grabbed my
keys and walked through the door. I was so scared, that maybe I would look too
bad for this fancy party, but I had to push away my negative thoughts and keep
myself in confidence.
As I walked
yard path I looked at Ethan, he was standing next to his car. He scanned my
whole body with eyes making me blush a little bit. Ethan was wearing black suit
and claret tie, his hair was fixed perfectly. This look stole my voice and
handsome“ I smiled and hugged Ethan.
Y/N. You‘re the only one handsome there“ He said speechless and opened cars
door for me. I laughed a little bit and sat. When I sat down I remembered, that
Grayson is in the cars back. I turned to him and smiled kindly.
all, you need to chill. Second of all you look too god damn good. It hurts, you
know“ Grayson said, when I wanted to say “Hey”. After his words I blushed and
punched his knee.
Gray. But you looking like fire too“ I winked.
in the car and we finally moved. In the radio started to play Montell Jordan -
This Is How We Do It. When I heard that our song is playing, I laughed and
started to sing along with Grayson, dancing a little bit too. In the middle of
song we started to laugh, because we couldn’t breathe. Suddenly I felt Ethan looking
at me. I sent him air kiss making him giggled. Grayson filmed few videos and
posted in Snapchat.
are.“ Ethan said and we looked around. Everywhere was photographers,
flashes. I felt really excited inside. We didn’t wait anything and walked
inside the building.
were in building I sighted slowly. Suddenly next to us I saw Cameron with Arron
and Jc with Kian. Every single one of us praised each others look, but boys
were speechless by my outfit
„What can I
say, you‘re lucky guy Ethan“ Said Kian and drank something from his glass.
„Gray, you too“
right“ Cameron giggled and winked in Ethans side.
too, that I have two amazing persons by my side.“ I smiled looking at twins.
minutes conversation, Gray walked away with boys, leaving me and Ethan alone.
Ethan suggested go to sit next to table. Suddenly few photographers asked to
pose for photos. After few photos we walked to our table and sat down. I sat
next to Ethan and sighted. I looked at Ethan who was taking photos and videos
for Snapchat. Suddenly he turned phone to me.
„Pose“ He laughed. I turned at him and started to
pose for photos, but I stopped after few minutes, and started to laugh.
that was worst poses ever“ I giggled.
no“ he giggled too. „I‘m really lucky and you looking absolutely stunning. I
can‘t hide this. I mean you always look stunning, but tonight is something
wow.“ He said.
I can say this about you same. But you need to stop, I‘m blushing too much“ I
said covering my face with hands. I heard his laugh. Suddenly I heard cover of
Maps, just in Vintage 1970s style. I loved this version so much and Ethan knew
it. He stand up and stretched his one hand to me.
your song, we need to dance“ He said to me and I stand up, giving him my hand.
We walked to dance floor and started to dance. His hands was around my waist,
my hands was around his neck and we were moving in rhythm. We both sang along
with Singer and enjoyed every minute of this. Our dance was full of laugh, joy
and somehow love. I just felt so much love. I looked at his eyes and smiled. I
put my head on his shoulder and suddenly I felt how he pressed my body by his,
making my smile bigger.
„Come in third floor. I don’t wanna lost.“
We got message
from Grayson in group chat.
“We have to
go.” I whispered in his ear. He just nodded and grabbed my hand. It felt
somehow good, but still awkward. We walked in to elevator and pressed button. I
moved closer Ethan taking his armrest, I saw his little satisfaction smile,
making me giggle.
just liked your smile. Full of satisfaction”
he said blushing.
seconds we were in third floor. We walked from elevator and started to search
for Grayson. We saw him talking with Jake and Logan, so both us came to them.
Brothers complimented my outfit and I thanked them. I didn’t knew, that my
outfit can make this impression for everybody. Soon Ethan excused ourselves and
grabbed my hand. I didn’t know where we going, but then I saw a big balcony
with view to LA. This building was on mountain, so view from there was wonderful.
Balcony was empty, so I took my heels off and I picked them to hold them in my
“Oh my God,
I could be here forever” I said to Ethan spinning around few times. When I stopped
and started ran to Ethan. He looked so good, his smile, oh and his laugh, I
could listen for hours. “I’m happy that I can experience this with my best
friend” Actually, my love.
He looked a
little upset now, so he just nodded.
everything okay? Because you look sad. If I did something wrong, just tell me.”
I put my chin on his shoulder, looking at his face features. But he still hasn’t
spoked anything. “Ethan say something.” Still nothing. “You know if you found
some girl and she made you sad right now, just tell. I’m gonna kick her ass”
Finally he started to laugh.
“Oh my god,
this is why I love you”
I freeze. “ You love me?”
mean it.” He went silent. “Okay, liar. I mean it.” He sighted. My heart started
to beat faster. He turned at me with full body and spoked “I know maybe this
isn’t right time to say that I love you, but I really do. And when you said ‘Best
friend’ it made me really sad. Maybe I’m tired of hearing everytime these
words, when I truly love you. And I know this is awkward, because… Oh never
mind.” We both looked down shyly.
“You had me
at our first ‘Hey’ and this is such a right time, you don’t even know” I
giggled and blushed. Suddenly I saw big smile on his face and his eyes on my
lips. “You..You can do it if you want”
at me last time and leaned for a kiss. His lips was so soft, I just wanted more
and more. He wrapped his hands around my waist and pressed my body by his. We both
smiled during our kiss and I just remembered, that this is my first kiss.
good kisser, even tho this was your first kiss” Ethan chuckled.
you, love” I said kissing him one more time.

Head canon where Jack has to go to a charity event hosted by the Falconers and in order to bring Bitty as his date, he also invites Shitty, Lardo, Ransom and Holster. The press takes lots of pictures and no one except the two of them knows that it’s a date. They’re interviewed as a group, but between Shitty’s unsolicited commentary and the defensemen’s antics Jack gets down the red carpet relatively unnoticed.
Inside it’s a zoo. Everyone is in fancy outfits and it’s like one of Lardo’s art show times 100. They’re all in tux’s, even Lardo, except her’s has a deep vee that shows off her more feminine shape and Bitty can’t help but point out to Jack the heated but guilty look that overcomes Shitty each time he gets distracted by the carefully taped gape of her blouse. Bitty and Jack don’t don’t play footsie per say… But they do tap each other’s toes under the table throughout dinner, smiling a little bit more to each other than anyone else.
After dinner everyone tours the silent auction. Jack pretends like he doesn’t see Bitty half-aborted freak out over the fancy stand mixer in the silent auction. Thankfully Lardo is also paying attention and she manages to distract him long enough for Jack to quickly scratch in ‘WLM King’, his phone number and an overly generous bid. When it’s time for Jack to present his auction item on stage, the group cheers with obnoxious abandon, but it’s the sight of Bitty that allows him to find his voice and present someone’s (not his own thank goodness) signed game jersey.
The Falconers raise a stupid amount of money. Bitty looks dumb struck at the winners ticket for a Kitchen Aid Pro in his choice of color… Ransom and Holster are in a food coma to rival that of Hausgiving 2015. The dessert buffet had been just a bad idea all around. Shitty and Lardo are hustling the bartenders and maybe successfully organizing an impromptu drinking game with Tater and Snowy. Bitty and Jack watch their friends from their table, something maybe like footsie is happening behind the tablecloth but they try to keep things innocent. They might be a little tipsy on champagne.
