enjoy-it-while-it-lasts

2x14: Random collection of thoughts
  • I loved the synchronisation of the opening and closing scenes of Jace and Sebastian. The opening scene is so eerie upon rewatch.
  • Sebastian ‘Woops, there’s Clary’ Verlac totally knew Clary was on her way.
  • Simon’s confidence in going against Jace already broke my wee heart before anything really heartbreaking went down. Like, ‘good for you, buddy. Enjoy it while it lasts’
  • What happened to the ‘Is it really a competition if I always win’ line?
  • For someone who gets his trivial wisdom from movies, Simon was pretty dumb for going near that tree.
  • ‘Use protection, and I don’t mean your gun!’ God, I hope she does not turn out to be some evil maniac.
  • The Malec handshake scene was adorable af.
  • Acting-wise I am sure Sarah Hyland would have pulled off playing the Seelie Queen, but since everyone know’s she’s with Dom, it would have been kind a weird to have her go like nowkiss.gif.
  • So who is she gonna play?!
  • I’ve seen some people complaining about a child playing the Queen, but I really loved it? Same thing happened with the angel Ithuriel, loads of people complained it should have been some drop dead gorgeous man, rather than an old guy. Angels and fairies are worlds apart from humans, and since the entire cast is already made up out of gorgeous people, I feel like yet another supermodel in a funky costume would not have done the job in showing that devide.
  • Also, Lola Flanery is insanely talented. She did a great job at being playful like a child, while wise as someone ancient.
  • The Other Side fit the kissing scene perfectly. And they timed it perfectly when Clary realised she hit the point of no return. I get it y’all wanted it for Malec, because it is a great song, but it’s a freaking break up song. Would y’all really want a scene that would fit the song? Like, super sad trouble in paradise? I doubt it, 
  • Add Lola Flanery to the list of ‘best schadenfreude face’. You know, the list that previously only had Alan Van Sprang on it from 2x11.
  • Random canon fact: Seelies also get blisters when wearing ballerinas. Check out the Queen’s handmaiden in the pink dress when the Queen joins the table.
  • I am so here for Raphael exposing Sebastian.
  • ‘The game isn’t for me’ I love how she sounds 50% bored, 50% entertained.
  • Isabelle looked drop dead gorge the whole episode. 
  • ‘No, mama. It’s mine’ Fuck me uuuuuppppp. Didn’t think anything other than Alberto’s wounded puppy face would hit me in the feels so bad.
  • R.I.P Climon and Rizzy. Welcome back, Clace. I can’t wait to see you, Sizzy.
  • Based on the promo, looks like poor Izzy is going to be in the position I have been way too many times: the one stuck in between a miscommunicating soon-to-be-couple.
Jaylos Week - High School Musical AU

He had never been chased before and, if he had to be honest, Carlos was actually liking it.

Mal thought he was stupid and continuously reminded him that Pretty Boy (which she always meant as an insult, but Carlos never denied how true it was) saw him as a conquest. Carlos was a shiny toy that was new enough to still hold value in his eyes. And yeah, that might be true (it probably was), but why did that mean he couldn’t enjoy it while it lasts?

Soon enough, Jay would find someone else to chase. Carlos hadn’t been around long enough to genuinely know Jay, but he knew the stereotype. A flirty teenage boy, hopping from fling to fling, and never staying around. Whether or not Carlos said yes and gave into being the flavor of the week, Jay would give up eventually when Carlos was old news.

Carlos knew that, he headed Mal’s warnings and made sure to not get his hopes up. He would take the special attention and over the top flirting and run with it. No one had ever adored him like that before, desired him, and it made Carlos giddy and confident and light-headed.

It didn’t hurt either that Jay looked like something from a romance novel. Dark skin and darker hair, less of a voice and more of a purr when he spoke, muscles that made Carlos stare whenever they were exposed (which was most of the time with all the sleeveless shirts Jay owned. It seemed everyone liked Jay’s muscles and he was certainly a people pleaser).

Unfortunately, Jay’s muscles were covered on the field, but Carlos wouldn’t have been able to see them from his distance anyway, so he stopped pouting. Mal stood next to him, entirely uninterested in the game, chatting idly with Evie, whose attention was evenly split between the game and her friend.

He was still deciding how he felt about Evie. The princess was stunning and lively, enticing even. Especially to Mal. Carlos couldn’t think of another person who got the same look from Mal as the look she gave Evie. If Evie made Mal happy (who knew that was even possible?), she was okay to Carlos. In fact, any other case, Evie would have been perfect.

She was Jay’s best friend and one of the only people in Auradon immune to his charm – a trait she was very proud of. That’s why she started hanging around him and Mal, she would follow Jay over to them.

And there was nothing wrong with being Jay’s friend; in fact, that made Carlos like her more. The issue was that he didn’t know if Evie liked him. She was always giving him strange looks, particularly when Jay was around. It was like the princess was studying him, evaluating Carlos, judging him.

If Mal was interested in someone, Carlos would probably do the same thing for her. He would observe, consider and decide on anyone who wanted to date her. It was part of being a friend.

But Jay didn’t want to date him. Jay didn’t want to date anyone. Did Evie give that same thoughtful look to everyone Jay flirted with? She would have to get tired and confused since Jay moved so quickly and what would be the point? Did it have to do with him being Mal’s friend, was Evie trying to decide how to get on his good side (and, by extension, Mal’s?) or was she trying to replace him?

Carlos startled out of his musings by a shout from the crowd in front of him. They were hollering at a person barreling through, gesturing and looking around wildly.

“What on Earth is he doing?” Evie murmured and she was hardly heard over the noise.

The announcer’s voice boomed across the field. “One of the players, number 8, Jay, has left the tourney field and is climbing into the bleachers on the south side. There are less than five minutes in the game, what is he trying?

Sure enough, when the distraction in front of them got close, closer, right in front of them, Carlos could see a handsome face beneath the helmet.

“Jay!” Evie hissed. “What’s going on?”

But he ignored her. “Carlos,” he was breathless and sweating after nearly a whole game of tourney, a wild look in his eyes that was a combination of scary and sexy, “I am not leaving this spot until you let me take you to dinner.”

What?

“What?”

Is-is he really talking to another student right now? Jay, get on the field!

Evie pushed Jay softly. “Get back on the field, you’re going to cost the school the game!”

Jay shot her a fleeting look, smirk in place. “Not if I make it back on time.” He turned back to Carlos. “I’m not leaving until you say yes.” He raised his voice over the roar of the crowd, everyone shouting and begging for one of the star players to return.

“I-I-, bu-but, you have to-to…” Nothing was making sense.

“I’m not hearing a yes.”

“Jay, this is the semi-finals,” Evie nearly screamed. “You can’t blow this!”

“Just say yes.”

Evie leaned past Mal, who looked utterly bewildered (but much more interested in the game) and grabbed Carlos, panic in her eyes. “The school will freak if we lose. Just tell him yes!”

The coach is trying for a time out, but there are no breaks except for emergencies in the final quarter. Just a bit more than three minutes left and Jay is still off the field!

“One dinner. That’s it. If you say no to me after that, I’ll be done. Just one dinner, Carlos.”

“Carlos! Jay!”

“Yes, fine, yes! Just get back on the field, go!”

Under the helmet, Carlos caught a wide grin and excited eyes. Jay turned away and ran back down the bleachers (Carlos would forever be grateful that Evie insisted they sit closer to field, toward the bottom, instead of being isolated at the very top like Mal tried for).

Three minutes left and Jay has finally returned to the field. I’m sure he will be in huge trouble with his team, but for now, he is running toward the goal, receiving a pass from Prince Ben-.”

Carlos refused to turn even though he could feel both girls staring at him. He ignored people in the rows in front of them, glancing behind to stare and murmur at him.

“What the hell was that about?” It was the first time Mal had spoken about an event in the game and her voice had Carlos jumping.

“I’m…not sure. Jay’s never done anything like that. Never.”

If he turned to look at them (which he was still refusing to do), Evie would be giving him one of those intense, thoughtful looks. Carlos still didn’t know what they meant and he was more confused than ever.

He had been trying so hard to keep in mind that this thing with Jay was nothing special – at least not to Jay. He had resisted every picnic proposition, movie invitation and even one-on-one study sessions.

And now he was going to dinner with the guy who made a spectacle in front of the whole school just to get his attention.

What the hell has he gotten himself into?

He dared a glance at the girls. Mal was snarling at the people staring at them while Evie just watched him. Was she smiling? Evie had never been mean or even cold to him, but she had never smiled at Carlos either.

She raised a finger to her lips and tilted her head. “You must certainly be something special, Carlos.”

“Jay has good tastes.”

He ignored both girls’ compliments and stared into the field, not focused on the game one bit.

With less than a minute left, the Auradon Knights have won the semi-finals! Let’s hear it for our boys!

1. Go to a party and stay sober. Listen to the way your drunk classmates talk when they don’t plan to remember tonight when they wake up. Never talk about these experiences, just keep them for yourself.
2. Start driving in one direction on the highway after school one day, pretending like you’re running away. Blast bad pop music and sing along. Stop in the suburbs when your mom calls you to come home, but buy your little brother a cupcake before you turn back around.
3. Kiss your best friend. It doesn’t matter what sexuality or gender you are or they are. It doesn’t matter if it’s a peck or you escalate to tongue. You’ll laugh about it later, but it will always make you smile just for the memory.
4. Smoke a cigarette. Let it burn your throat. Cough, loudly.
5. Take a stand for something you believe in. When half your school laughs at you, take it with pride. Someone agrees, even if they’re too scared to say so.
6. Make enemies. Make the kind of mistakes that cause your life to implode. Lose everyone and everything to these mistakes. Only when you fall will you find out that you can pick yourself back up.
7. Sit on someone’s roof and talk for hours. Forget about dinner and tell your origin stories. Let your guard down while the dog barks below. Talk about god. Listen.
8. Steal Bourbon from your parents’ liquor cabinet and put it in a water bottle beneath your bathroom sink. Spike your tea with it when you think you’ve hit rock bottom. Pour the whole thing down the drain when it’s too strong for you.
9. Become a stereotype. Buy a record player and combat boots. Wear all black. Dye your hair bright blue and get your ear pierced three times. Don’t care when people laugh at you.
10. Make wishes at 11:11. Wear your pajamas backwards in the hopes of a snow day. Look for answers at the bottom of a bottle. Pretend writing things on your arms makes you special. Believe in anything. Believe in everything. Open every book and look around every corner. You’ll never look like this or move like this or think like this again. Enjoy it while it lasts or hate every second. But feel. Feel every damn thing.

ML Angst Week Day 4: Love / Life

For some reason I thought of Tikki and Plagg fondly remembering their old wielders and knowing that the superhero cycle will always repeat itself and they’ll inevitably continue to lose them.  But they draw strength from each other and try to enjoy this time while it lasts. 

(Last minute collab with @midnightstarlightwrites – I’ll reblog with her drabble attached!!)

Accidents Happen

-Sirius and remus are hidden in the common room. The two have little space to move as they watch their latest prank causes havoc amongst the other students, James included-

Remus: Merlin, he’s going to kill us

Sirius: *realises how close Remus is*

((OOC: Sirius played by the ridiculously attractive @asktheblacksheep like seriously theres no need to be this attractive, stop it))

“I know this isn’t going to be an easy ride… Doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it while it lasts.” 


Made some revisions to her portrait from yesterday! I definitely prefer her natural hair colour 😙😇

You can read a little about her here, if you’re curious!
