Happy birthday @nightsofllyn, you beautiful enabler and wonderful writer and friend <3 You’re to blame for the beast that this AU has become in my head so here’s my gift back to you for that, stay beautiful and have the best birthday ever <3
Love doesn’t need to last a lifetime for it to be real. You can’t judge the quality of a love by the length of time it lasts. Everything dies, love included. Sometimes it does with a person, sometimes it does on its own. The greatest love story ever told doesn’t have to be about two people who spent their whole lives together. It might be about a love that lasted two weeks or two months or two years, but burned brighter and hotter and more brilliantly than any other love before or after.
Where did all those feelings go? People spend their whole lives looking for love. Poems and songs and entire novels are written about it. But how can you trust something that can end as suddenly as it begins?
I had my first two days working at Penguin and guys it’s amazing there! It’s so colourful and there’s books EVERYWHERE! And so many of them I can take for free!! There’s a ‘pulp’ section full of books employees can take which is full of advances from all departments (*googles every YA book published by penguin*) - it’s like working in heaven!!
Everyone there is really nice, and obviously loves books, and it’s so amazing to finally be working in a publishing environment everyday. I’m going to love working there, which is such a lucky feeling to have. I realise I’m so incredibly blessed to be saying this.
I write the above not to brag, but to say don’t give up on working towards your dreams. I was so unbelievably close to giving up on working in publishing after being rejected over and over again for two years, but I kept pushing and now I’m in a place I love!
Okay listen Imagine lying in bed all cuddled up next to your boyfriend Calum, while he is still asleep. So you use the moment to not so creepily watch him, because he usually gets to shy when you study his features and you just can’t yourself and admire your handsome boy, wondering how you got so lucky. After some time he opens his eyes and as soon as he catches you staring he starts to hide his face in his hands and crawls further under the blanket and demands with his raspy morning voice that you should stop staring. You do as he wishes, because you know how embarrassed he gets and tell him that you’ll go and make breakfast, but Calum just holds onto you and doesn’t let you leave the bed, trying to hold on to one of the rare mornings you both have together as long as possible. Soon you start to notice that he studies you features just as well, as you try to do with his and ask him why he is allowed to do so and you aren’t. And he just answered that he tries to not to get to close to you, in case you have to break up over the long distance or he fucks something up while he is on tour. And you knew calum had some issues with relationships and the term of love, that is what everyone was saying at least. So you start to ramble about how you want to spend the time you together as close as possible in the best way ever, so you have nothing to regret in case you may break up. And suprisingly he agrees and in your euphoria about the achievement, you accidentally let the three big words slip out of your mouth and you immediately close your eyes, you don’t wanna see the reaction of the boy that apparently isn’t capable of love. But he just says it back, telling you that the time he spends with you, is in fact the first time he feels alive and at peace since a long time!
imagine Kyle, Jason, and Jessica having a full on discussion/argument about something (that isn’t even that Deep, probably about pokémon) in Spanish and Simon sitting there wondering what the hell is going on and when they can’t seem to agree, they just shut up and stare at Simon expectantly so that he could tell them what he thinks but he just blinks back and gives them finger guns
