england expects




 Rays of light creeped through the break in the curtains casting beams upon the bed you shared with Harry. You glanced over to the bedside table which held your alarm clock, projecting the time across its face. 8:22. The room was cool despite the fact it was mid summer. What else could you expect from England though? Your feet gently hit the laminated floor beneath you as you tiptoed out the bed- being careful not to awaken Harry. You pulled large hoodie over your head, covering your underwear clad body in which goosebumps arose on your body. 

 "y'cold bug?“ Harry’s husky voice startled you slightly as he watch you from the bed. 

 "A bit.” You admired his beauty from your stance across the bedroom. His hair flopped against his forehead of a slightly plump face which always occurred when he first woke up. His inked chest rising up and down slowly as his gaze continued on you.

 "C'mere and let me warm you up.“ You climbed back in the bed beside Harry and cuddled into his chest as his muscular arms wrapped around you waist. You gazed up at his swollen morning lips, placing your over them. 

"Love yeh kisses.” He mumbled tucking you deeper into his chest. You fiddled with the cross necklace which hung carefully from his neck, taking it in your fingers and running the pad of your thumb around the outline. Your hand moved across his slow rising chest, lightly brushing over his newly developed chest hair.

 "Look at these hairs! Bloody hell where did these come from,“ you giggled looking up to you boyfriend "and my word! Look at all this stubble!” You mocked running your hand across his jaw, feeling the rough prickles beneath your fingers. 

 "Took me long enough, 23 years to be exact.“

 "My little baby boyfriend is turning into a manly man.” You pouted. 

 Harry brought himself so his body leant over yours, looking down at you with a cheeky smirk. “I’ll have you know, I never wasn’t a man,” he asserted jabbing his fingers in you ribs making you squirm beneath him, “and I’ll also have you know, you’re younger than me so don’t get too loud down there.”   His lips connected with yours and lingered for a while until breaking from you and gazing down at you in the light. “Look like an angel.” He whispered, stroking a piece of fallen hair from your face. You giggled at his corny remark, sitting up from your position and pecking him on the lips once again.

“I love her because she moves in her own way.“ Harry sung along gently to the radio as he poured his cereal into a bowl. 

 You sat on the counter admiring him dancing and singing along, two years of dating and yet you still couldn’t get over how amazing he actually was, he was genuinely the most perfect man you had ever encountered. Not one day went by where he hadn’t failed to make you laugh and make you feel special, whether he was with you in the moment or a thousand miles away. 

 "Y'know,” harry started, “you’re making it incredibly difficult for me not to kiss your pretty little face off, sat there all cute and pretty.”

 "Then do it.“ Harry got up from his chair and ran upstairs, you had absolutely no idea what he was doing but then again , everything Harry did was very unpredictable. 

 "Harry? What are you doing?” You giggled walking to the bottom of the stairs tilting you head up to look for him. Loud footsteps cam running down the landing and down the stairs as harry rushed towards you, taking your head in his hands and planting kissing all over your face. “You’re such a dork, you’ve got toothpaste on your chin.” You giggled underneath his lips. “Didn’t wanna bless you with my bed breath so had to brush m'teeth.” You shook your head at him , laughing slightly before licking your thump and bringing it up to his face, wiping away the toothpaste which had landed on his chin.

 "Eughh gross.“ He mocked pulling a disgusted face at you.

   "Disgusting aren’t I?” You challenged. Harry wrapped his arms round your waist pulling you closer to him, using his finger to tilt your chin up towards his face. 

 "Absolutely repulsive, and I love it.“ He mumbled pressing his lips into yours. 

(Sort of a) Acorn Press Acrylic Charm Review

Yoooo~~~~ my acrylic charms came today during a snowstorm and I totally did not expect it XDDD I thought the storm was going to delay it for sure. Kudos to USPS delivery guy (stay warm and stay safe man). It really made my day ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

Here are the references for my Yuri on Ice and Overwatch characters charm set. I will be selling these at future cons and events. So check out my con schedule if you’re interested in purchasing them! I will probably sell them online for leftovers. I don’t have a store yet (as of 2/9/17) so check back on my tumblr or other social media (or you can message me) for updates!

Also, I find it super funny that overwatch and YOI characters came during a BLIZZARD, COLD and ICY day (no pun intended lol) 

They look super nice thanks to @acornpress ! I would highly recommend them if you are interested in selling acrylic charms for cons/online in the future. This is my first time ordering acrylic charms so take my words with a few grains of salt. Also I’ll be rambling all over the place and spamming run-ons so be aware :P

People's reactions to Louis playing this event strikes me as another one of those sliding scales when it comes to his career. None of the others would play such a lacklustre event, but because it's Louis, the expectations are low. Like the regional radio station tour.

You read my mind anon. And imo you are spot on. Its a perfect information point in fact for anyone scrutinising how that brand reduction is going. The sliding scale you mention is very pertinent; that old frog in boiling water analogy. Our expectations for Louis have been successfully lowered to this already, just one single in. We’re congratulating his team for finally doing their jobs – booking him on a reality TV show graduates festival in NW England

 Im kind of expecting it to be talked up in the fandom though until its not much worse than equivalent of the top events the other guys play. Because we know that things aren’t *really* that bad for Louis; his mad extreme fans are exaggerating as they always do.  Soothing assurances that Louis career may not be going quite as well as the others, but he’s fine if not for those pesky bumbling, lazy but still well meaning people who are (so inexplicably) his team. Maybe they’ll get their act together this time though yeah?

So yeah anon, the frustration is all too real. I look at some of the posts going around about this, and the fact that Louis’ promo for it is already dodgy (*Facebook* is the go-to platform for Louis career announcements?) and what I see being spread around is the exact same emollient, numbing stuff we’ve seen all along,  as BTY and Louis whole launch, were stabbed in the front and the back, in front of our eyes. I can no longer understand if its just refusal to look at whats happening straight on; or seeing it and refusing to join the dots because that might be just too awkward.  Or something else? Who knows?

This gig is apparently proof his next single is imminent so yay rejoice!, but nowhere and I mean *nowhere* on the ‘tell me why this is happening and should I worry?’ blogs is it even *acknowledged* what his team have done to BTY  so we should be very concerned for the next single too and braced to take extraordinary measures to support it.  Because acknowledging what happened with BTY – and it has been extraordinarily blatant if you just choose to look  – would mean that incompetence is no longer an option as a valid excuse.  And ‘incompetence’ seems to be the last line of defence and its not going to be surrendered come what may.

Meanwhile perhaps we can consider that this gig is a less than stellar way to promote a single for Louis Tomlinson, who should by now (if he had been allowed actual promo as opposed to what they’ve done to him) have a recognisable rising profile as a solo act with (limited but still real) global name recognition and a huge fanbase. Perhaps we can notice that the gig it’s peopled by lower tier XF/BGT/Syco acts, and Rita Ora is the only name that comes close to his in recognition or global reach. That that none of the other 1D guys labels would let them near a XF/BGT bill like that to promo their single because it lowered their brand? That it nonetheless suits the Northern, humble chav who fits right in with a reality TV tabloid line up in NW England. And the very simple fact that Louis has been *allowed* by his own team so few performances, that now anywhere he’s allowed to sing  is seized on as incredibly good news that shows he’s still being promoted. How much further can they lower our expectations? Until were hailing them for a show on Clacton pier?

Where is BTY to keep Louis name current before the next release? Actually lets not mention BTY and of course its not sabotage.  And Harry will be in the UK at the same time. So, that explains everything, rejoice even more, they decided it all together and away with your niggling downer warnings that maybe Louis’ brand is being diminished to the  level of James Arthur and Louisa Johnstone. Pick someone supportive. 

Ack sorry anon. Im just a bit sad watching this all happening. And believe me if there are suddenly a raft of top bookings - top TV shows with sit down interviews, high level festivals, actual label backing on radio as opposed to smoke and mirrors, social media promotion not designed to damage him –if that happens now and BTY was just some bizarre punishment beating, I’ll be the first to rejoice and do backflips all over the blogsphere. I’ll say lovely things about everyone responsible. But Im not pretending its likely at this point because I see zero evidence of it. And that makes me want to work all the harder for him, because we are *all* he has got.
