This will not be word for word from the episode because I don’t feel like re watching it. Lol.
y/c/h - your color hair
Dying is a part of life. Eventually everyone dies and moves onto heaven or hell. You see, I never really believed in God. There are so many different religions with vivid descriptions and you never really know what’s real and what isn’t. But I did expect something.. Not pearly gates but something. There is nothing though. At the very least I expected to float around as a ghost or something. Haunting people that pissed me off.
Nothing but darkness.. Forever. Maybe I was in hell. And hell is nothing. There is no God. The Devil made him up so that people have faith and hope that if they’re good they can end up with their loved ones. Well, even if you’re a saint you’ll still end up in Hell.
I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t do anything under the same roof as my parents killer. It hurt too much and the nightmares and my mental state weren’t helping my case either.
Powell’s Book Store is the mecca of bookstores. It is what all other bookstores wish they could be when they grow up. It is, for the booklover, a religious experience. Powell’s is the largest independent bookstore in the world, and it is located in Portland, Oregon.
Technically, it’s a chain, because it has subsidiary bookstores throughout the area, but when someone says “Powell’s” they mean the main store, Powell’s City of Books. Which takes up an entire city block. And they didn’t knock down the old buildings and build a new building, no; they just connected all these old warehouses and stuff so it’s a warren. You go in and they hand you a map, because you need it to find your way around. They sell both new and used books.
They have a lot of books, but it’s more than that. These days, if you want some sort of rare or out of print book, you can probably find a copy on Amazon or Ebay or something. But it used to be, if you wanted a book that was out of print, you called Powells and they found you a copy. If they didn’t have one, they would use their arcane skills to find you one. They can still do this; if Powell’s can’t get a copy of the book you want for you, it can’t be done. They were online in the late 90s, well before Amazon.
I can’t explain to you the joy and awe and wonder of Powell’s, but it is truly an experience to go there, and I love it.
AU of the GTA V AU- nefarious criminals, use the club as both profit and as a cover for harder deals
(Names: Achievement, The Cockbite, Hunters, ??? Goin’ Brakeless)
•Geoff the boss man: underground face of the club; handles finances, drugs, weapons, etc; can usually be found either sitting behind the bar with his feet propped up and his eyes hidden behind a pair of shades or tucked in a dark corner watching over his kids on stage; Ryan’s back-up when needed
•Jack the bartender: ‘public face’ of the club, mostly just deals with the alcohol but occasionally helps with drug deals; aircraft and warehouse connection; super protective mother-bear for all the dancers
•Gavin the bartender: originally hired as a dancer as well but didn’t enjoy it as much; switched to bar full time once they hired Michael; will occasionally jump on stage to perform a routine with Michael or Ray
•Michael the waiter/dancer: originally called in to deal with the sketchy fuse box; was asked to audition when Jack caught him swinging his hips and bopping along as one of the gals practiced while he was doing repairs; minor military-grade weaponry connection
•Lindsay the waitress/dancer: Michael’s roomie and kind-of girlfriend; dancer at a competitor’s club, the source of 99% of Michael’s moves before he’s hired; moves to Geoff’s club when her old joint gets busted for illegal sexual practices
•Ryan the bouncer: found him on Craig’s list, super serious and scary and intimidating until you get to know him- in reality a huge goofball; falls for Ray immediately the first time he sees the younger man working the pole and promptly begins wooing him; the main weaponry connection
•Ray the dancer: most recent hire, the 'newbie’ (Gavin jokes about him being the virgin and that sticks for an annoyingly long time before he gets caught giving Ryan a rather explicit lap dance in the dressing room after hours); decent drug connections, an excellent shot- sniper for hire on the side
I had more floating around my head when I first thought of it but it’s all alluding me currently. Oh well.
