i wonder if sidra get a lot of hates because people kept saying that she look like stella behind her back

even through sidra do look like petra but the colors of her eyes, and acting a bit like stella was before althrough less cold and less meanie and…

at first, sidra tried to ignore it (courtesty of her friends and sister) but then the rumors and talks behind her back just keep going until sidra doesn’t take this anymore and get mad the way petra doses

and she just went ‘say that or i will punch you in the face hard if you ever, ever say bad things about my mother and me.’ before walking away, knowing these people will shut up about it the next time they see her

Everyone Has A Weakness - Part 2

Request from @sborrink: (possible part 2 to ‘everyone has a weakness’ or a stand alone story. Your choice.). Dom!Bucky x reader where the reader finds out that Bucky has a thing for skimpy Halloween outfits/lingerie courtesty of Nat letting it slip out during a drunken girls night out (Bucky reluctantly helping Nat pick a costume). Reader sees it as a perfect oportunity to get back at Bucky at Tony’s Halloween party for all the teasing he’s done, but Bucky has some ideas of his own.

Note: So I have changed this just a little bit in regards to how Nat informs the reader. Rather than having her letting it slip due to alcohol she just comes right out with it - I can definitely imagine her doing that! I also would like to apologise right now for the ending! haha!

Warnings: There is smut in this piece so please if you are under 18 DO NOT READ. It is not suitable for you so I’d rather you stayed reading my SFW stuff. Major teasing (sorry!), language, dominance and slightly controlling behaviour.

Another piece of fabric was thrown over the changing room door to where you were stood, forcing you to catch it before adding it to the pile that was steadily beginning to form. You couldn’t believe that this stuff was actually classed as clothing – looked more like brightly coloured dental floss to you – but Nat had insisted on coming shopping for Tony’s Halloween party and dragging you along with her.

Your mind wasn’t in it though, not after what had transpired in the gym the other day, good god you hoped no one had seen the two of you, scrap that….heard you. It became apparent rather quickly that Bucky brought noises out of you that you didn’t even think were possible and given the shock of how quickly it had all unfolded you were unable to even attempt to keep them held back.

“[y/n] are you even listening to me out there?”

Nat’s voice snapped you out of the rather racy thoughts your mind had started to play out and it was a good job too because you were beginning to feel an all too familiar heat building between your legs and had she not spoken your ability to stand would have soon disappeared.

“Sorry Nat, was too busy wondering just how this all passes as clothing.”

“о мой Бог! (‘oh my god!’) You sound ancient! This is all the rage among us adults at Halloween…” You were about to disagree with her entirely but almost as though she knew you were she spoke again before you could even open your mouth. “….and Bucky LOVES this stuff.”

fukurodani hcs
  • since sarukui has that sweet monkey smile for most of his emotions, it can be hard to tell when he’s legit angry—but according to komi, mad!sarukui flares his nostrils, so komi dubbed mad!sarukui as gorilla!sarukui (sarukui is Not Amused)
  • Stories to Tell Onaga I: in the previous year, komi made it a punishment that anyone who made fun of his [lack of] height had to carry him around to & from club; after shirofuku made fun but could only carry him princess-style, komi amended the punishments to piggybacks-only & said the managers were off the hook so only the guys have to carry him these days (as onaga wasn’t present, sarukui & konoha have pics of komi-hime to show their first-year baby bird)
  • bokuto is Proud Dad & Team Mom all at once sometimes; when akaashi & suzumeda joined last year & onaga this year, bokuto has shown his “mY BABIES” side complete w/glomps just as many times as he’s congratulated everyone on a well-played game
  • most everyone on the team is Too Much, so onaga tends to ask washio for advice & so they chat a lot; they are good pals~ 💕
  • akaashi knew suzumeda as the sporty girl in his class & let that slip to shirofuku; shirofuku p much hunted her down to see if she’d like to become a club manager
  • Stories to Tell Onaga II: do not call shirofuku by the nickname “yukki"—konoha tried to last year & almost didn’t live to see his final year of high school
  • acceptable nicknames: "komiyan,” “kaori-chan” (not rly a nickname but y'know—also, only by shirofuku), “wasshi” (by konoha & bokuto when they’re being lazy), “saruman” (sarukui thinks he’d make a kickass evil wizard), “yamisen” (short for “yamiji-sensei;” coach honestly doesn’t know what to do with the 3rd yrs, poor guy)
  • unacceptable nicknames: “yukki,” “ninja-kun” (according to konoha; the others find it hilarious), “omonaga/-kun” (after the others learned how bad it hurts onaga’s feelings, they stay on the watch for teasing instances & defend their baby owl as needed; bokuto/konoha/komi are rly vocal about it, but sarukui & esp washio give the best silent glares to shut people up)
  • akaashi has poor taste in t-shirts, in scarves, in pants…but, surprisingly, he has a rly cool sweater collection & good taste in shoes
  • Stories to Tell Onaga III: konoha refused to do a cosplay café & dress up as a girl in his first year, but bokuto assured him it was no big deal & cross-dressed to show his support; fukurodani banned cosplay cafés for the years to come
  • suzumeda learned early on about her senpai’s ravenous appetite, so she often carries candies in her pockets these days just for shirofuku
  • when it comes to studying, washio leads the pack w/akaashi’s, suzumeda’s, & onaga’s help; konoha & shirofuku manage okay on their own, sarukui & komi do best cramming at the last minute, but bokuto…fukurodani has to pull out all the stops for him ;w; but akaashi & onaga have the best patience for teaching him things
  • after the fukurodani–nekoma match, since he got his first, real taste of useless!bokuto, even sweet little onaga gets exasperated w/his senpai in games at times…
  • Stories to Tell Onaga IV: after their first training camp back in their first year, the 3rd yrs know NEVER to let sarukui possess permanent markers. NEVER.
  • konoha can, unfortunately, confirm that yes, that is bokuto’s natural hair color(s)
  • owls who only have to run a comb thru their hair in the morning: onaga, akaashi, shirofuku, sarukui, washio
  • owls who take forever to groom: suzumeda (she can never get a proper, smooth ponytail on the first try), bokuto, komi, konoha (boy has so much product it puts the team to shame)
  • when the day looks particularly exhausting & club hasn’t even started yet, one can find washio hiding in the references part of the school library; onaga learned this first, then akaashi & konoha, but they’re all kind enough to the gentle giant not to pass around this info ESP to bokuto
  • be scared when there’s new music out for komi & konoha to enjoy: komi jumps around erratically to the songs stuck in his head & konoha shakes his moneymaker…even during club
  • komi & shirofuku are Not Headrests. pls tell sarukui & konoha, tyvm
  • on a similar note, onaga & washio are Not Ladders. gdi, komi
  • in the fukurodani vbc, there’s a thing called the “owl races"—if coach yamiji lets five minutes pass w/no direction, the team starts pairing off & running laps outside, w/komi riding on washio’s shoulders, shirofuku on konoha’s, & suzumeda on onaga’s; akaashi & sarukui refuse to carry bokuto, and akaashi almost strangled bokuto w/his legs that one time bokuto surprised the setter & hefted him up onto his shoulders
  • the only kinds of movies komi enjoys are those full-on 3D experience ones where you sit in a seat that moves around; the only one who doesn’t get motion sickness from that & tends to join him is sarukui
  • bokuto thinks nicknames are a sign of respect for his friends, but he doesn’t realize hotheaded little komi actually softens up some when called "komiyan” i.e., no one can resist the bokuto charm 💖
  • when bokuto isn’t around to be the butt of the joke, konoha becomes the team punching bag (courtesty of komi, sarukui, & shirofuku)
  • shirofuku is allowed to help w/food & snack prep during training camps, but suzumeda prefers onaga’s help when actually cooking since he doesn’t eat everything as it’s finished
  • on rainy days, sarukui & akaashi are v distracting ‘cuz their hair gets Curly to the Max
  • bokuto w/his hair down & unstyled is a thing of nightmares
  • good birbs who eat a real breakfast in the morning: bokuto, komi (he thinks he might have one last growth spurt), suzumeda, shirofuku, onaga
  • bad birbs who’d rather sleep in until the last minute: sarukui, washio, konoha, akaashi
  • Stories to Tell Onaga V: when they first joined, bokuto took one look at coach yamiji & called him “grandpa”…& the other 3rd yrs have never let him forget it
  • owls who ride the train: onaga & konoha, washio, akaashi & bokuto
  • owls who walk/bike to school: komi & sarukui (sarukui stands on the back of komi’s bike when they can get away w/it), shirofuku & suzumeda
  • tan washio & komi get completely crispy during summer; fair-skinned konoha & shirofuku burn & turn redder than her hair
  • tho he dislikes jokes about his small stature, komi has no problem w/snuggling into a nest of heat made out of washio+sarukui+onaga during winter
  • everyone’s used to how bokuto drapes on them, but he’s clingy only w/akaashi since the 2nd year didn’t tell him off when it first happened (he was kinda shocked at the behavior), but akaashi is okay w/it by now
  • fukurodani’s biggest pain-in-the-ass according to bokuto & coach yamiji: sakusa
  • fukurodani’s biggest pain-in-the-ass according to everyone else: kuroo & nekoma (& bokuto, *lol*)
  • yes, bokuto’s not the brightest bulb in the box & yes, he forgets to return money he borrows, but he also is the mawkish dork who buys everyone a little xmas gift & some valentine’s candy or chocolate for them every year, so no one can hold anything against his heart of gold 💞
  • konoha is apt at reading everyone on the team, altho shirofuku is rather ambiguous to him so he guesses hungry most of the time (& tbh he’s often right, much to her chagrin)
  • shirofuku can out-eat all the guys & lap them if she feels like running w/them at the end of the day; BUT! she can also go for hrs w/o eating anything on the rare occasion
  • akaashi’s parents thought they’d have a bigger family & so got a big house, but it wasn’t until the club decided to chill @akaashi’s place so often that his parents got their big fam, *lol* (so, so many owls…)
  • the team also spends time @onaga’s 'cuz his mum cooks the best large meals
  • everyone’s from a decent fam w/decent incomes, but sarukui’s fam is loaded, so the team gets invited to vacation w/them during the summer in karuizawa @sarukui’s beach house
  • non-team friends: akaashi gets along v well w/kenma (quiet friendship), suzumeda is childhood friends w/yamagata (a fact she tries to keep secret from the guys lest they jump to traitorous conclusions), bokuto & kuroo obviously should never be left to their own devices, & shirofuku enjoys getting the quiet shimizu to talk
  • will make good wives someday (i.e., who’s domestic): onaga, akaashi, suzumeda, konoha (his skills are passable in the beginning before he gets better), sarukui
  • who traipses to the convenience store late at night for snacks: washio, bokuto, shirofuku, komi
  • komi has a great dane which was great until the pooch grew to be bigger than him; suzumeda has a maine coon who thinks it’s a dog; sarukui has a beagle–bloodhound mix & loves playing w/its ears
  • bokuto’s great w/kids & actually babysits neighbors’ kids from time to time; when the team was shocked at the thought of him being responsible for smols, bokuto sulked for a week
  • conversely, akaashi is not great w/kids 'cuz they don’t know what to make of his poker face; the only baby akaashi can look after well is bokuto XD
  • onaga & washio are teacher’s pets
  • bokuto can squirm out of getting detention w/a smile; konoha lands himself in detention w/a smile
  • after 3 yrs of bokuto & co., yamiji-sensei considers retirement…but he hangs in there for akaashi’s & onaga’s last yrs 'cuz they’re easy & good kids & become good captains

Continued from Part 2 of Christmas Comes Early…Jughead and Betty’s relationship is better than it’s ever been before, but then there’s Archie…

Gif courtesty of @admireforever

Jughead was completely lost in thought thinking about Betty. He had never known that it was possible to love someone as much as he loved her. He thanked the stars above that he’d been given another chance to show her what she meant to him. He’d grown older and wiser and stronger over the past couple of years and he knew he would be a better man for her now. It meant everything to him. She meant everything to him.

And he knew he’d started to make some progress in getting Betty to join the Serpents with him. She had seemed much more into the idea when they’d been together the night before. The thought of Betty being a Serpent sent a thrill throughout his whole body. Having her be a part of something so important to him, looking badass as hell with her own Serpent jacket, made Jughead feel like the luckiest man in the world.

 "Jug! Earth to Jughead!“ Toni’s voice calling his name snapped him back to reality. 

“Uh…what? Sorry, what’s up, Toni?” Jughead asked as he closed the hood of the old Chevy he’d been working on.

“What were you so deep in thought about?” Toni asked with a smirk as she approached Jughead’s work station at the auto shop. Toni worked there with him, but she did all the appointments and billing in the garage office. The two often had lunch together, and today Toni had brought them sandwiches.

Jughead shrugged.

“Um…nothing…really.”

Toni chuckled as she handed Jughead his lunch.

“Spill it.” She said, not believing him. She knew him too well.

Jughead leaned against the old car and wiped the grime off his hands with a towel, unable to hide his grin.

“Well, only that I talked to Betty about the whole joining the Serpents thing last night and she seemed much more open to the idea than she had before.”

Toni’s eyes widened with surprise. She knew how much of a holdout Betty had been when it came to talk of joining the gang.

“What did you do? Seduce her into agreeing to it?” Toni asked with a laugh.

Jughead could feel his face turning red. 

“Oh my god…you did. Well, it’s about damn time. Must have been pretty good too, in order to change her mind like that.”

Jughead chuckled.

“Well, I didn’t intentionally seduce her, and I don’t quite know how convinced she is at this point. She said she would ‘consider’ it.”

Toni shrugged.

“Hey, it’s still something. It’s progress. Just give her some time. She understands how much you want this, but you guys just got back together. Don’t rush anything.”

Jughead nodded in agreement. Toni had always been a voice of reason.

“Oh, and she ran into Archie last night at Pop’s. Well, actually, seems Archie went to Pop’s specifically to go see her. He didn’t even text me to let me know he was back.” Jughead said before biting into his turkey sandwich.

“Seems he’s been avoiding you lately. Any ideas why?” Toni asked, curiously.

Jughead shook his head.

“Not really, but I’ll find out. I’m going to drop by his house before dinner at the Cooper’s. I’ll find out what’s been troubling him.”

——

Jughead rang the doorbell as he stood on Archie’s front porch. He usually wasn’t one to show up unannounced but Archie hadn’t answered his texts and Jughead wanted to know what the hell was going on with the person who’d been his best friend his whole life. The last time Archie had acted this way was the summer that Jason Blossom was murdered. And as they had all discovered, Archie had been having an affair with Miss Grundy. Jughead didn’t know about it until much later, and it was only when he’d seen Archie and Grundy together that he even knew something was going on between them. Archie hadn’t told him a thing leading up to Jughead confronting him about it. The whole situation had hurt Jughead. It felt awful knowing that Archie hadn’t trusted him enough to tell him what was going on, and instead, had distanced himself from Jughead.

And now Archie was doing it again. Jughead hoped he could get his friend to open up to him about whatever it was that was bothering him.

“Jughead.” Archie said matter-of-factly with a nod as he opened the front door to see Jughead standing there. It was almost as if Archie had expected him to show up, and yet, he didn’t seem too thrilled to see his old friend.

“Well hello to you too, Arch.” Jughead replied sarcastically. “Hate to bother you, but can we talk?”

Archie shrugged as he opened the door wide enough to let Jughead enter the house.

“Dude, what’s going on? Betty says you went to see her last night but you couldn’t shoot me a text?”

Archie sighed as he rubbed his face with his hands.

“Yeah…I don’t know. I just…things have been busy, with finals and everything. And…” Archie trailed off, knowing full well that his excuses were weak and Jughead wasn’t buying it.

Jughead nodded as though he understood, but he couldn’t help but feel extremely frustrated that Archie was holding back. He thought they’d grown out of this kind of thing. That they were adults now.

“Well, I can understand being busy. But I had something really important to tell you. I needed to hear back from you.” Jughead replied, hoping that opening up to Archie about getting back together with Betty would help Archie to loosen up. It seemed as though Archie was on the defensive, and Jughead had no idea why.

“Yeah, Betty already told me that you two got back together. The way she acted, it seems like things have gotten really serious pretty quickly.” Archie said with what almost sounded like utter disdain in his voice.

Jughead couldn’t help but grin at the mention of the woman he loved and how amazing things had been between them.

“Things have gotten serious…very serious.”Jughead replied.

Archie scowled, knowing full well what Jughead was implying.

“And you’ll probably just end up disappointing her again.” Archie scoffed.

Jughead suddenly felt completely sideswiped by his best friend. He couldn’t understand where all of this contempt was coming from.

“Why would you say something like that, Archie?” Jughead asked, clenching his jaw. He had expected Archie to be happy for him and Betty, not the opposite.

“You want the truth, Jug?” Archie asked as he crossed his arms over his chest.

Jughead nodded.

“Lay it on me, man.” Jughead replied as he mimicked Archie’s defensive stance.

“For the past month, I’ve realized what could have been…no, what should have been with me and Betty. I should have picked her over Veronica. Now, I want to make it right. I want my chance with her. Betty is an incredible woman. She belongs with someone that would be good for her.” Archie said as he glared at Jughead.

Jughead almost wanted to laugh. He couldn’t believe Archie was serious. But Jughead tried to tell himself that these were the words of a man that had been scorned by an ex. That he was so hurt by his breakup with Veronica that he was trying to go back in time. But that wasn’t possible. What was in the past was in the past. Archie had passed up his chance to be with Betty long ago and Jughead would be damned if he let Archie try to steal her from him now.

“Archie, listen to yourself. What you think you want, isn’t what you want.” Jughead replied, doing his best to bring Archie back to some semblance of reality.

But Archie continued to scowl.

“She deserves someone who won’t hurt her the way you did.”

Jughead shook his head, unable to control his chuckle at Archie’s words.

“I was just a kid, Archie. I was a kid in my first serious relationship and going through a lot of tough shit. I’m not the same person that I was then. And now Betty and I have a second chance. Don’t think for a second that I’m just going to step aside and let you mess that up for us. I’ll fight you tooth and nail for her.”

Archie smirked at Jughead’s challenge.

“Then, let the best man win.”

—–

“Juggy, my parents are right downstairs! Polly and the twins are next door!” Betty giggled as Jughead grabbed her around her waist, pulling her to him, kissing her neck and collarbone. She smelled and tasted incredible.

The two had gone into Betty’s old room after helping Polly put the twins to sleep once they had all finished dinner. Betty had wanted to grab a few things real quick before leaving to go back to her apartment, but the nostalgia of the old days had come flooding back. Jughead would never forget that they had been in that very same room when he’d kissed Betty for the first time.

“Then we need to be very, very quiet.” Jughead replied, his voice low as his hands found their way under Betty’s dress and began to remove her panties.

Betty softly sighed at his touch, unable to tell him no.

“We have to be quick.” She murmured as she unbuttoned his jeans, her hands impatiently fumbling with his zipper.

Jughead sat on the edge of Betty’s old bed, the pink comforter and lace pillows were still the same ones that she’d had when she was in high school. He smiled slyly at Betty, thinking of those old days as she climbed on top of him. How many times had he wanted something just like this to happen during all those times he’d been with her in her room? He’d lost count. But now it was happening, and they both let out a groan of pleasure as their bodies melded together.

“Shhhh…” Betty said with a quiet chuckle as she pressed her lips to Jughead’s.

Jughead grabbed her bottom as he pushed himself in deeper, causing Betty to gasp, moaning softly in his ear as her arms wrapped tightly around his neck.

“Oh Juggy…”

Jughead couldn’t help but smile to himself at the way her body responded to his. It was as if they had been made exclusively for each other. That the two of them were meant to be in every way imaginable.

“I love you.” He whispered as his hands wandered over her bare breasts and then down to her waist, he clutched her tightly as he moved his hips in a steady rhythm with hers. It didn’t seem like their quick romp in Betty’s old room was going to be so quick. It was too good. It was perfect, and he couldn’t even imagine anything ever getting in the way of what they had.

He hadn’t told Betty about his conversation with Archie earlier, and he wasn’t sure he was going to. Even though he knew Betty loved him, and wanted to be with him, there had always been that little voice of doubt in the back of his mind that wondered if Betty still harbored some feelings for Archie. After all, she had been in love with Archie for years before she and Jughead had dated. He couldn’t help but wonder if she had really gotten over Archie that easy.

Jughead was unable to control the pestering insecurity he felt in regards to Archie. And he felt guilty for it, knowing Betty would tell him that he’s absolutely ridiculous for feeling that way. She would tell Jughead that she loved him and only him and that the thing with Archie had just been a silly, unrequited crush. But the determination on Archie’s face when he’d told Jughead that he would be willing to fight for Betty, had been unsettling. It was as if Archie knew he could defeat Jughead in the long run. And Jughead couldn’t help but wonder if Archie was right.

To be continued…

Favorite Movies: 1/11 - 1776 (1972)

“I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace; that two are called a law firm, and that three or more become a Congress! And by God, I have had this Congress! For ten years, King George and his Parliament have gulled, cullied, and diddled these colonies with their illegal taxes! Stamp Acts, Townshend Acts, Sugar Acts, Tea Acts! And when we dared stand up like men, they have stopped our trade, seized our ships, blockaded our ports, burned our towns, and spilled our BLOOD! And still, this Congress refuses to grant ANY of my proposals on independence, even so much as the courtesty of open debate! Good God, what in hell are you waiting for?” ~ John Adams, 1776

The Monkees in London

Here is a sort of masterpost type thing of the Monkees’ time in London in June/July 1967. This was the only significant time all four Monkees spent in the UK during their heyday, and obviously being from the UK and spending a lot of time seeing bands in London this stuff interests me.

The boys arrived in London on the 28th of June, coming just across the water from Paris. The very next day they held their first ever group press conference at the Royal Garden Hotel, which is overlooking Kensington Gardens (which is basically attached to Hyde Park).

The Royal Garden Hotel/Press Conference:

By coincidence, last summer I was in Kensington on the anniversary of the Monkees stay there. Here’s a post I made at the time, showing the hotel as it was in 1967 compared to how it is today.

The Shows:

The Monkees played five shows at Wembley Arena (known until the late 70s as ‘Empire Pool’) over the next three days: one on Friday 30th, and two shows each on the Saturday and Sunday, to crowds of 10,000 at each show. Lulu was the support act, and the poor girl apparently copped some flack from the audience as she was rumoured to be involved with Davy at the time.

Here is what Lulu thought of each of the boys, transcribed by me from Flip magazine, February 1968:

“To be quite honest I had a pre-conceived notion that Davy might be a bit big-time and sure of himself because of his professional attitude. I was wrong. When I got talking to him at Wembley I soon realized that he is overwhelmed by it all and just a little bewildered and before he went out to face the audience on the second night with all his relations down from Manchester to see him, he was as nervous as a kitten. He introduced me to his sister on that evening and we spent some time talking together about him. The family is immensely proud of him and the way he helps his father. He obviously has a very deep attachment to his family.”

Peter can get incredibly wound up about a subject, and suddenly right in the middle of our shopping spree [with Micky Dolenz and Samantha Juste] he got involved in an argument with Micky about fate and whether our lives are all mapped out for us. Fortunately, it was not too serious and a clash of opinions like this is soon over.”

“Peter is one of those people who have a natural gift for helping keep the conversation going–Mike, for example, does not and if he is in an untalkative mood you won’t shift him. Mike is a lot more deep than you realise–there’s a little piece of himself which he is keeping to himself and no one is going to get a look at. He was always polite and very much the Southern gentleman and he has a wicked dry sense of humour, but you don’t very often get past the door marked 'Private’ in his mind.”

Micky is really lovely. He’s a marvellous ham at times and just clowns around the whole day. To watch him handle the press is a treat–he turns an embarrassing question with a good humoured crack and immediately gets the reporters on his side.”

A few fun facts about the shows:

  • Mike and Micky wore black armbands in support of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger who’d recently been busted for drugs.
  • Mick Jagger’s face was also shown on the big screen while Davy performed “I Wanna Be Free”
  • According to a review by NME of the final show, Keith Moon was in attendance and, before the show started, stood up and shouted “we want The Who!”

Party with the Beatles / Micky in Hyde Park:

On the 3rd of July, the day after the Monkees completed their Wembley shows, Brian Epstien threw a huge party for the Monkees at the Speakeasy Club in London. This was also the party that Micky and Peter introduced the Beatles and Eric Clapton to STP.

Info courtesty of @psychojello. Full post HERE:

Peter remembers: “Micky and I are meeting the Beatles at a London club called the Speakeasy. And in come George and John singing to the tune of “Hare Krishna” “Micky Dolenz, Micky Dolenz, Dolenz, Dolenz, Micky, Micky.” And Paul is with Jane Asher, and the other guys didn’t bring anybody, and I had just done some STP which was an LSD-type psychedelic drug. I mentioned it to John and he said, “We heard that’s no good. Mama Cass told us not to take it.” But he said, “Okay”. So I went back to the hotel and I got some. Popped one down his throat. I guess he was alright because he seemed to survive. I don’t think I’m responsible for “Strawberry Fields” though.“

Here’s who attended: The Monkees (minus Davy, who was out of town to visit his family) and the Beatles (but not Ringo because Maureen was having a baby), Pattie Harrison, Jane Asher, Cynthia Lennon, Samantha Juste, Phyllis Nesmith, Dusty Springfield, Lulu, Eric Clapton, The Who, Procul Harum, Mickie Most, Frank Allen of The Searchers, Manfred Mann, Barry Miles, Jeff Beck and others.

Around 3:30am, George Harrison started a jam session with his ukulele, with Peter Tork playing banjo and Keith Moon playing drums on a table. Not too shabby! The party ended around 6am.

The following morning, after the party, Micky went wandering through Hyde Park and ended up singing to a bunch of fans.

“Who is the most incredible, the most unpredictable pop star of ‘em all? Well at the risk of offending supporters of other members of the Monkees, it’s Micky Dolenz who currently holds the title. And it’s all because he put on the most incredible, most unpredictable pop performance of all time when the boys were in London.”

  • lil gina taught lil jake how to use make up (courtesty of @phil-the-stone​, i add to this headcanon that she would make him hold the bottle whenever she’d put on new nail polish)
  • people around the precinct have been talking about jake/amy and betting w/ each other when they’d get together so when jake and amy finally do get together literally nobody bats an eye and both jake and amy notice that whenever their colleagues look at them, it’s that Knowing Look that lasts a second longer with a smile
  • amy doesn’t mind that jake always wants to be the little spoon. she wraps all of her limbs around him and they form a sort of human burrito and it delights him, but whenever she wakes up in the morn (she always wakes up before him) she finds him completely untangled from her and on occasion, half his body hanging off of the bed
  • rosa diaz is a bisexual and whoever she ends up with in the long run is literally a human ray of sunshine
  • back when he was still at the academy, jake had this hair:
  • he and rosa were - and honestly still are - the platonic version of this picture
  • when jake meets amy’s brothers for the first time it happens all at once and he’s frightened and they circle around him like he’s a deer that’s caught in the headlights and he does that nervous laugh + terrible joke, but then amy pushes her way through her brothers and reprimands all of them for striking fear in her bf’s heart when they are actually huge sweethearts (they think they’re being hilarious and end up loving jake a ton)
  • speaking of loving jake a ton, amy’s mother adores him. straight up. partially because amy rarely ever introduces men she dates to her family, but also because a mother can tell when something is legit
  • roger fucks up again and jake ends up cutting him out of his life for good (but he still respects his mother’s decision for giving him another chance)
  • jake and amy most def have discussed marriage and children. like, not seriously, but it has v sneakily slipped into their regular conversations and both of them feel secure enough in their relationship to just roll with it
  • if jake and amy have a girl they’ll call her rey because of star wars and raymond holt
  • and speaking of rey!! a future game the squad plays: real rey or fake rey. it’s like the ray version, except this time the squad guesses if something was said by rey or her father jake. it’s a tough one bc while rey is smort like her mom, she also tends to say things on impulse like her dad
  • the first time rey refers to captain holt as grandpa holt, nobody corrects her and everybody just rolls with it. also when she hears that his first name is ray she thinks he has the exact same name as her, and it excites her

“Dude, do you EVER read the entire email?? It’s not my birthday. I just had my 200th catastrophic blind date courtesty of Tinder, and I figured I deserved a drink .. or two. Five. Ok, seven.

Hey, if you want to get a little Professor Bolton action, I’m not going to stop you. Just .. if you do end up going home with him, please don’t tell me any of the details. I still have to sit through his Medieval History class for the rest of the semester..”
