Lin-Manuel Miranda on His Lifelong Oscars Obsession and Why the Show Still Matters (Guest Column)

The Hollywood Reporter
February 20, 2017

During college, Lin-Manuel Miranda and a friend used to improvise interpretative dance tributes to best picture nominees at their annual Oscar party. “It was a lot of breathing and rolling around,” recalls the creator of the Broadway smash Hamilton. “We had a great Seabiscuit dance one year.”

For the New York-born son of Puerto Rican parents — his father a political consultant, his mother a psychologist — it was just another phase of a lifelong fascination with the Oscars that began when he was growing up in the Inwood section of Manhattan, playing and replaying the telecasts that his family recorded on their VCR. At 37, Miranda is about to cross the threshold from superfan to participant: “How Far I’ll Go,” which he wrote for the Disney film Moana, is nominated for original song, and on Feb. 26, Miranda (with his mother) will attend his first Academy Awards.

It’s an auspicious step in a career that will see him star with Emily Blunt and Colin Firth in Disney’s 2018 Mary Poppins Returns and collaborate with composer Alan Menken on the studio’s live-action The Little Mermaid, one of Miranda’s favorite films and, he reveals here, the gateway to his Oscars obsession.

My brain is a compendium of Oscar moments: Tom Hanks’ beautiful acceptance speech when he won best actor for Philadelphia in 1994. Roberto Benigni climbing over chairs and wanting to make love to everybody in the world when Life Is Beautiful won best foreign-language film in 1999. Kim Basinger presenting in 1990 and telling the audience that one of the best films of the year, Do the Right Thing, was not nominated. For her to take a stand, 25 years before #OscarsSoWhite, was incredible — and impressive because time has shown the prescience of that film.

I expect we’ll see more of that this year. It’s a political time, so I imagine the Oscars will look exactly like your Twitter or Facebook feed. Why should we ignore for three hours what we’re talking about 24 hours a day?

The Oscars were always a family affair when I was a kid. One sort of unintentional tradition we had every year was during the “In Memoriam” part of the show. My family called it the “She died?” section because my dad, who is pop culture-oblivious, would always go, “She died? He died? She died?!” the whole time. So, it was very sad and yet also very funny watching my dad catch up.

When I was a kid, the Oscars felt like this impossibly larger-than-life thing. The first time I felt like I had a horse in the race was in 1990. I was 10, and The Little Mermaid was up for best song and best score. They did that crazy “Under the Sea” number with the late, great Geoffrey Holder and dudes in scuba outfits tap-dancing with flippers. We had a tradition of recording the show on our VHS, and I must have watched it a million and a half times.

There was also an amazing Chuck Workman montage at the beginning of the show that depicted 100 years of filmmaking with classic scores. I was already in love with movies, but this was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen in my life.

That was the period when Billy Crystal was hosting, and I would memorize his musical spoofs of the year’s top films. He did them with Marc Shaiman, whom I’m working with right now on Mary Poppins Returns… I was a huge fan of those moments and musical numbers — they showed a genuine love of movies while still poking fun at them. I may also be the only person in America who laughed his ass off to “Uma, Oprah. Oprah, Uma.” David Letterman’s commitment to that bit was enough to put it over the top for me. He didn’t care if no one got it. In his head, it was funny.


Hosting the Oscars is not a thing I would ever want to do… You always have to do this dance as a host: You’re playing to a billion people at home, and you’re playing to anxious contestants in a room, and that’s an insanely hard thing to divide. It’s the most thankless task in the world. I have a pretty healthy ego, but it does not extend in that direction. I’d much rather be the guy writing the opening tune than having to deliver it.


Another Oscar moment that really stuck with me was when Whoopi won her best supporting actress for Ghost. I’ll never forget, at the top of her acceptance speech she said, “Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted this,” which is so rare. Then she said, “As a little kid, I lived in the projects, and you’re the people I watched. You’re the people who made me want to be an actor.” For me, it was like she was saying, “If you want this, you can get it, too. I’m proof that you can.”

I had been seeing myself in this world since I was old enough to do anything, and it was as if she reached through the screen to talk to me. I was that kid. Even my mother used to say, “Remember what Whoopi said.”

That speech was the inspiration for the opening song I co-wrote for Neil Patrick Harris, “Bigger,” for the 2013 Tony Awards:

There’s a kid in the middle of nowhere sitting there, living for Tony performances singin’ and flippin’ along with the Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkys, Matildas and Mormonses / So we might reassure that kid and do something to spur that kid  / ‘Cause I promise you all of us up here tonight, We were that kid and now we’re bigger


Another of my favorite moments was in 2005, when they had Antonio Banderas sing “Al Otro Lado Del Rio” from The Motorcycle Diaries, which was nominated for best song. And then when Jorge Drexler, who composed it, won, he went onstage and sang it, like, “This is how it really goes.” It was so funny and ballsy and great. I’m happy whenever Latinos win anything, so I was thrilled by both performances.

I can’t tell you what it feels like in that room because this will be my first time at the Oscars, but I can tell you why the Oscars matter. It’s a night when the arts and artists are formally honored, and this recognition is seen by millions of people across the country and around the world. The show inspires people to keep pursuing their craft, or to seek out the nominated films or the overall body of work of the nominees, and through that exposure, people gain a greater appreciation of what the art of filmmaking brings to our culture.

Idk if this is unpopular but I prefer taylena to all of Taylors other friendships

I don’t think it’s unpopular, but I totally agree. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of Taylor’s friends, but my heart has and always will belong to taylena. Let’s take a deeper look into this beautiful friendship because why not.

As Selena said to James Corden, she’s the original squad member. In fact, long before the invention of the “squad” and the goals that go with them, two young teens forged a friendship for the history books.

Both of them dated Jonas Brothers, keeping it in the family. A sign of true friendship. Most importantly, this is how they met. Apparently they “clicked and became instant best friends” thank god for Jo Bro dick.

Look at these awkward teenagers circa 2008, it was a dark time for all of us (peace signs, award mirror selfies), but at least they had each other.

Remember when Taylor wore flats and not heels taller than my entire body? Selena does. They look like high school freshman being sent off to their first homecoming dance. It’s fantastic.

And even as those awkward teen years progressed, they managed to stay best friends. Remember 2009/2010? Who doesn’t? Miley was still Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers were still wearing their purity rings and the disney kiddos/taylor had new drama every week? Let’s elaborate.

Taylor and Joe broke up, resulting in lots of bad blood

And of course, who could forget the massive feud between Demi/Selena and Miley/Mandy?

So much drama, so little time. But Taylor and Selena remained close throughout this whirlwind of teenage angst, which is not an easy thing to do. 

They look so happy and carefree. True friendship captured, frozen yogurt and all. 

Remember when they went bowling? I truly iconic friendship date. And check out that digital camera!

What I would give to be trapped in this friendship sandwich.

Friends who win people’s choice awards together win life together too. Best friends must have matching trophies, it’s basically law. Another quality moment.

While on her Speak Now Tour, Taylor wrote the lyrics to Selena’s song “Who Says” on her arm. Wow, Just wow. True friendship.

AMAZING. To take things a step further, Taylor invites Selena out while performing in New York to perform “Who Says” together. Such a moment. Definitely one for the books.

The AMA’s. Wow, what a night. Taylor rocking the side ponytail, matching 3d glasses for her and Selena. Lots of awkward dancing.

We can’t forget that this happened

And of course, here we have Taylor playing the awkward 3rd wheel to Selena and the Biebs, an important sacrifice we all must make for the sake of friendship.

The Teen Choice Awards. Look at these fools. Look at them. So happy, so carefree. Holding hands. Supprting each other. I may shed a tear.

Speaking of supporting each other, never forget this gem

Mermaid pose? Nailed it.

Who could forget this day? A vine of them eating ice cream by the beach. Selena’s wearing seen wearing heart shaped sunglasses, similar to the ones Taylor wore in her 22 video.

Of course, who couldn’t forget 22? A song with the secret message: ASHLEY DIANNA CLAIRE SELENA. Wow. A hidden message with Selena’s name for a song about their friendship! Who does that? Taylor does.

Unfortunately Taylor drifted from Ashley, Dianna and Claire. Thankfully, Taylena’s power only increased.

Remember when Taylor was dancing right behind her and she never even noticed?

Here they’re dancing to 1 Direction together, what many consider to be the start of haylor. Of course Selena is apart of this iconic moment.

Hugging it out again

Here we see Taylor speaking for all of us, cringing as she watches Selena’s ex fuckboy try and whirl his way back in. Me too, Taylor.

Some more awkward dancing at awards shows

And when your friend says there’s no way she can beat Miley, there’s only one proper response. One of the few times we get to see Taylor curse and she’s with Selena. Coincidence? Maybe, but probably not.

And here we have Selena being a wonderfully supportive best friend when 1989 came out. Such a heartwarming message. I can’t even get my friends to like my instagram pics.

And as usual, they’re being supportive af at another awards ceremony

And who could forget the most beautiful heartbreaking moment of all time. Taylor’s reaction to Selena’s emotional performance of The Heart Wants What it Wants

But let’s get back to the fun stuff. 

Let’s talk about this lovely compliment

The time they drunkenly danced at the 1975 concert and Taylor posted a video. Truly marvelous.

Or the time they were the cutest couple in met gala history

And then there’s the time they got nail polish with their initials? And referred to it as BFF Birthday Weekend. Cheesy and adorable.

One of Taylor’s riskier fashion ensembles, but Selena was there to support her anyways. That’s friendship.

How about the time Selena imitated Taylor performing and NAILED IT

Of course, we can’t forget the Bad Blood video. Two bad ladies slaying my ass, dressed in S&M gear and surrounded by flames

And the reaction video they made when it won a Grammy, both of them crying tears of joy BECAUSE THEY ARE GENUINELY HAPPY FOR EACH OTHER WHEN SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENS

An iconic moment at the 2015 VMA’s, the night of the bad blood release. How to ignore your douchy ex when he performs at an awards show, presented by taylena

And more supportive friendship hugging of course

This next one is perhaps the most important, why? BECAUSE I WAS THERE. Here I am enjoying a lovely evening at the 1989 tour at the staples center in LA when Taylor brings out the ONE AND ONLY SELENA GOMEZ SO THEY CAN PERFORM SELENA’S NEW SONG TOGETHER, BOTH OF THEM LOOKING HOT AS HELL AND SLAYING MY ENTIRE EXISTENCE.

Remember when Selena once again praised Taylor for how fantastic she is via instagram?

Or when Selena shared her special blanket via snapchat, which she takes on tour for when she’s homesick. It’s covered with pictures of her loved ones, at least 2 squares containing pics with Taylor. A literal friendship quilt. Someone call Leslie Knope, she’d lose her shit.

Let’s not forget Selena’s carpool karaoke, where she not only admitted that she considers herself the OG squad member, but danced it out to Shake it Off

And, of course, the night to end all nights for Taylena: The 2016 Grammy Awards.

When they OWNED the red carpet together

When this wonderful moment happened

And this adorable shimmy. What are they doing? Idk but I love it.

Don’t forget platonic friendship cuddles

And a little private shade 

But most importantly, Selena’s reaction when Taylor won album of the year, crying tears of joy for her best friend and shredding my emotions into a million pieces

And watching as she accepts her award, like a proud sister

And finally

Selena tweets in Taylor’s defense the night of the kimye scandal and gets dragged to hell and back for it. talk about a ride or die damn

And at Taylor’s final awards show of 2016, as well as her final awards show of the 1989 era, we have Selena presenting Taylor her award for album of the year. Look how proud she is. Look at these idiots.

And here we have Taylor being her usual supportive self, cheering Selena’s name from her sofa as she watches her win the award for best pop artist at the AMA’s. Same, Taylor. Same.

In conclusion, Taylena is the most iconic friendship ever to exist, they invented loving and supporting one another and have destroyed my life on a regular basis since 2008 god bless them

From the Taylor Swift Spotify page.

Taylor Swift is that rarest of pop phenomena: a superstar who managed to completely cross over from country to the mainstream.

Other singers performed similar moves – notably, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson both became enduring mainstream icons based on their ‘70s work – but Swift shed her country roots like they were a second skin; it was a necessary molting to reveal she was perhaps the sharpest, savviest populist singer/songwriter of her generation, one who could harness the Zeitgeist and turn it personal and, just as impressively, perform the reverse. These skills were evident on her earliest hits, especially the neo-tribute “Tim McGraw,” but her second album, 2008’s Fearless, showcased a songwriter discovering who she was and, in the process, finding a mass audience. Fearless wound up having considerable legs not only in the U.S., where it racked up six platinum singles on the strength of the Top Ten hits “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me,” but throughout the world, performing particularly well in the U.K., Canada, and Australia. Speak Now, delivered almost two years later in the autumn of 2010, consolidated that success and Swift moved into the stratosphere of superstardom, with her popularity only increasing on 2012’s Red and 2014’s 1989, a pair of records that found her moving assuredly from country into a pop realm where she already belonged.

This sense of confidence had been apparent in Taylor Swift since the beginning. The daughter of two bankers – her father, Scott Kingsley Swift, worked at Merrill Lynch; her mother Andrea spent time as a mutual fund marketing executive – Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania and raised in suburban Wyomissing. She began to show interest in music at the age of nine, and Shania Twainwound up as her biggest formative influence. Swift started to work regularly at local talent contests, eventually winning a chance to open for Charlie Daniels. Soon, she learned how to play guitar and began writing songs, signing a music management deal with Dan Dymtrow; her family relocated to Nashville with the intent of furthering her music career. She was just 14 years old but on the radar of the music industry, signing a development deal with RCA Records in 2004. Swift sharpened her skills with a variety of professional songwriters, forming the strongest connections with Liz Rose. Taylor’s original songs earned her a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, but not long after that 2004 deal she parted ways with Dymtrow and RCA, all with the intent of launching her recording career now, not later.

Things started moving swiftly once Swift came to the attention of Scott Borchetta, a former DreamWorks Records exec about to launchBig Machine Records. Borchetta saw Swift perform at a songwriters showcase at the Bluebird Cafe and he signed her to Big Machine in 2005; shortly afterward, she started work on her debut with producer Nathan Chapman, who’d previously helmed demos for Taylor. Boasting original song credits on every one of the record’s 11 songs (she penned three on her own), Taylor Swift appeared in October 2006 to strong reviews and Swift made sure to work the album hard, appearing at every radio or television event offered and marshaling a burgeoning fan base through use of MySpace. “Tim McGraw,” the first song from the album, did well but “Teardrops on My Guitar” and “Our Song” did better on both the pop and country charts, where she racked up five consecutive Top Ten singles. Other successes followed in the wake of the debut – a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist (she lost to Amy Winehouse), stopgap EPs of Christmas songs – but Swift concentrated on delivering her sophomore set, Fearless.

Appearing in November 2008, Fearless was certified gold by the RIAA in its first week of release, and the record gained momentum throughout 2009, earning several platinum certifications as “Love Story,” “White Horse,” “You Belong with Me,” “Fifteen,” and “Fearless” all scaled the upper reaches of the country charts while “You Belong with Me” nearly topped Billboard’s Top 100. Along with the success came some headlines, first in the form of an infamous appearance at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards where her acceptance speech was interrupted by Kanye West, who burst on-stage to declare that Swift’s rival Beyoncé deserved the award more, but her romances also started gaining attention, notably a liaison with Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who appeared with the singer in the 2009 film Valentine’s Day.

Her flirtation with the silver screen proved brief, as she then poured herself into her third album, Speak Now. Released in October 2010, Speak Now was another massive first-week smash that refused to lose momentum. Hit singles like “Mine” and “Mean,” which won two Grammys, played a big factor in its success not just on the country charts but on pop radio as well. Following a 2011 live album called World Tour Live: Speak Now, Swift turned toward following a pop path on her fourth album, hiring such mainstream musicians as Dan Wilson, Butch Walker, and Britney Spears producer Max Martin. This mainstream pulse was evident on “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” the first single from Red. Upon its October 2012 release, Red shattered expectations by selling over a million copies in its first week, a notable achievement that was doubly impressive in an era of declining sales. Once again, Swift’s album had legs: it was certified platinum four times in the U.S. and its international sales outstripped those of Speak Now. She supported Red with an international tour in 2013 and more hits came, including “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “22.”

As Swift geared up for the release of her fifth album in 2014, she made it clear that 1989 was designed as her first “documented, official” pop album and that there would be no country marketing push for the record. “Shake It Off,” an ebullient dance-pop throwback, hit number one upon its August 2014 release. When 1989 appeared in late October 2014, it once again shot to number one and became her third straight to sell one million copies in its first week (a new record for any artist).

Swift gathered many awards during the subsequent year, including Billboard’s Woman of the Year, the Award for Excellence at the American Music Awards, and a special 50th Anniversary Milestone Award from the CMAs. Her 1989 World Tour crossed Asia, North America, and Europe during the last half of 2015, and she won three Grammy Awards at the 2016 ceremonies, including Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood.” At the end of 2016, she released “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” a duet with ZAYN from the soundtrack for Fifty Shades Darker. The single reached the Top Five across the world. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

The King-part 1

The King Masterlist

Summary: King Arthur-ish AU featuring Negan as a medieval king. It had to be done. It just did. Sorry.

Warnings: Negan…language, smut, violence. Possible dub-con. Posessive Negan. Darker than I usually write. No fluff. There is no historical accuracy intended in this piece. I barely utilized the google.

Tags: @negans-network @negansmutweek @flames-bring-a-ton-of-ash @ladylorelitany @melodicdolls @superwholoki @thatwriterizzy

It was a day of celebration throughout the land. Banners flew in the breeze. Cheers and songs could be heard around the castle and surrounding city. The king had married a lovely new bride from a neighboring kingdom a week ago, and today the rest of the kingdom came together to watch the festivities and sport that only tournament can boast. Knights traveled to compete in hopes of winning fortune and glory and perhaps a place at King Negan’s legendary table of knights known as the Saviors. For it was they, that protected the surrounding lands from invaders and pillagers in return for tribute.

Villagers came from far and wide to witness the spectacle and to catch a glimpse their beautiful new queen. For a beauty Queen Gwendolyn was.  Red flowing locks braided in intricate patterns flowed down her back. Her porcelain skin was the envy of all. Large green eyes adorned with long thick lashes watched as each event play before her eyes. Lips the shade of a dusky rose formed a dazzling smile as cheered for the victors from her private box in the stand. The king had decided to participate in his favorite event, the melee, at the end of the tournament and was awaiting his turn on the side of the field while the jousting commenced.

The last knights lined their horses at opposite ends of the tiltyard. Each bowed to the queen. Their visors were lowered. The horses charged. The lances pointed towards the other. They hit each other with a resounding blow.  One knight fell to the ground. He struggled to stand but fell back in defeat. His squires hurried to help him off the field and to corral the horse.

The victor, Sir Richard of Alexandria, walked his white horse along the edge stands and removed his helm. He shook his wavy locks damp with perspiration. His blue eyes smiled to the crowd as he waved his hand. As he approached the royal box, he pulled a rose from his gauntlet and threw it the new queen. She caught it and the smile immediately disappeared from her face. The color drained her delicate features. Her eyes scanned the edge of the yard and found her husband’s glaring in her direction. He had seen the knight present his favor and her accept it. She quickly handed the rose to a handmaiden and sat down. Head forward, back straight, the very picture of an elegant lady.

hi! I don't want to sound rude at all or anything, but what has Ian Somerhalder done that's brought on the negativity? again, not trying to seem like a dick, just looking to be informed. thanks! (:

I’m so sorry this took me 10 years to reply to I got it this morning but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had the time to respond until now. Also, pls don’t feel bad for asking a question you’re totally fine! I’m on mobile at my aunts house so this isn’t as good as it would be if I could like sit down and type a response so I’m going to do the best that I can, here goes:

-When he started dating Nikki he was at a convention and he said he needed viagra to shoot DE scenes because apparently Nina is just so gross. Like come on dude, we all saw how obsessed he was with her, it was a little extensive at times (i.e. staring at her boobs during interviews). Yea, he sure as hell never needed viagra with her lmao bitter much, Ian?

-He also said that Elena’s contribution to the show was “banging the brothers and now they’re better people for it”. I mean the dude straight up slut shamed a female character for having sex with her boyfriends. (Meanwhile his character has literally fucked every female character that’s ever been on the show)

-also when a fan asked if we’d ever get to see a delena wedding he said “I’m already married.” Apparently he doesn’t understand the difference between real life and television.

-Yelling and berating a group of like 10 fans that were just asking for autographs, literally making a girl cry. He legit screamed at her for asking to take a photo, it’s on video and he gave this long ass speech to them like “THIS IS MY DAY” and then when everyone called him out on it after they saw the video online he made this Instagram post with a ten paragraph caption (full of grammatical errors bc he’s an idiot) about how great he is and how he did nothing wrong because he’s amazing to his fans. (Because screaming at them for wanting to take a photo with you because they look up to you is treating your fans so great)

-A few weeks later another video was released of him doing the same thing again

-he’s such a child he can’t even be in the same room as Nina. Example: the past teen choice awards he had a con going on so they rescheduled the entire convention so he’d be able to attend the tca’s, but then he blew it off. Nina was the only one that showed up and accepted the award that they had BOTH won all by herself. Dude can’t even face his ex girlfriend who is perhaps one of the most reserved and mature women I’ve ever seen and has a new boyfriend like come on you’ve both moved on and she left the show, you can’t even stand on a stage with her for 2 minutes to thank your fans for endlessly voting and giving you this award???

-One time he liked a photo Nina posted on Twitter and then claimed he was “hacked.” (Even though he insists that they’re friends and there’s no bad blood but he can’t like a photo she posts on social media that’s just too far lol) and apparently when someone hacks your Twitter they just like someone’s photo and then do nothing else lmao even the cast of the show (Matt Davis) were making fun of him for it bc it was such a lie

-his foundation is bullshit. They’ve legit never done a single thing and most of the donations go to him personally so now he has a 3 million dollar home in Venice thanks to his fake love for animals. Also, the people that donated thousands of dollars with the promise of a phone call with him never got it. He’s been investigated by the IRS like ten times already.

-he legit gets in fights with 10 year old girls on social media just take a look at his insta it’s all there. Some 12 year old made a comment about Nikki once and he straight up responded and flipped out at her and everyone was like wow okay she’s a child probably on her moms phone and you’re a grown man like come on grow the fuck up. And he’s done this multiple times to multiple girls. What kind of 36 year old man feels so threatened by a little kid that he’s gotta put her in her place? Once again, GROW UP.

-he’s super inappropriate with underage girls at conventions and makes comments about their “boobies” (his word not mine)

-made a rape joke about a month back when someone asked why Bonnie would ever sleep with Damon so he said he’d “get her drunk” bc when you’re drunk you can’t consent

-only takes pictures or interacts with fans if he’s being paid at conventions otherwise he refuses and yells at them

-he also lied about his relationship with Nikki. Someone once said it was kinda fucked up that he would date his ex’s friend and he responded by saying that Nikki and Nina weren’t friends and only met twice, which is a straight up lie. The two ladies made a video together for this campaign about health insurance, they hung out tons of times (there’s photos), Nina was literally at Nikki’s first wedding a few years back and the couples used to go on double dates. It’s his life and he can do what he wants, but the man just constantly lies about everything it’s ridiculous. Like even if they were friends who cares why do you feel the need to lie about it just to explain yourself to some random commenter on the Internet???

-his ego is so big idk how he can even walk down the street without it weighing him down the dude is obsessed with himself. He has a contest going on right now where you can win a dinner with him and Nikki and literally JUST TO ENTER you have to pay 10,000 dollars lmao

-there’s so much stuff it’s impossible to list all of it but that gives you an idea. For more stuff just check my anti-Ian tag it’s got everything that’s ever been posted.

-overall he’s a disgusting self obsessed misogynistic piece of shit who thinks he’s gods gift to women when in fact he’s nothing but a creepy narcissistic ass hole

Good for me C.H.

Camera flashes were the only thing I could see all along the red carpet. People were screaming our names as we were walking down, pausing every second to pose for the cameras.

Calum had his arm resting on my waist, his finger brushing the skin that my backless dress showed. He was dressed in an amazing suit that made me drool over him. A smile was plastered on his face the whole evening, even in the red carpet, a place I knew he didn’t like that much. But he had told me that he wanted to be there with me, supporting me in what could be the most important night of my career. I had been nominated for two Grammys: best R&B singer and best album of the year and I couldn’t be more nervous. Of course, I wanted to win but I also adored the other artists who were also nominated. So having Calum by my side, made me feel calmer.

Billboard

One thousand nights ago, you might have been listening to Taylor Swift’s 1989 for the first time. You might have blasting “Blank Space,” learning how to sing along to “Style” and gearing up to dance along to “Shake It Off” on the inevitable 1989 tour. October 27, 2014 seems like a long time ago now — as of Sunday (July 23), it was 1000 days ago — and since the release of Swift’s fifth album, the pop superstar has stayed extremely busy.

Could we talk about her charity work, the Kanye West-Kim Kardashian West drama, the AT&T deal, the Tom Hiddleston? Of course. But let’s focus, as Taylor often does herself, on the music. As fans await Taylor Swift’s post-1989 full-length follow-up, let’s review the songs that she’s given us (or performed, or co-signed) since her last opus.


RELEASES

By the end of 2016, it had become clear that Taylor Swift was not going to continue her streak of releasing a full-length album every other year, as she had done from 2006 up to 1989 in 2014. Yet three weeks before the end of last year, Swift returned with her first post-1989 song: “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” a duet with Zayn that was part of the Fifty Shades Darker original soundtrack. Produced by Taylor’s pal Jack Antonoff and following in the success of Fifty Shades soundtrack songs like The Weeknd’s “Earned It” and Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do,” “Forever” became Swift’s second soundtrack hit (following “Safe and Sound” from The Hunger Games) and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song’s video, released last January, has a whopping 361 million YouTube views.

Swift has also spent the downtime between albums to collect a few songwriting credits: “Better Man,” Little Big Town’s latest country hit, was written by Swift… although it wasn’t revealed that the pop superstar had penned it until a few weeks after its October 2016 release. “Better Man” topped the Hot Country Songs chart, and has been performed by Swift exactly once (more on that later).

Meanwhile, Swift also sneakily co-wrote “This Is What You Came For,” Calvin Harris’ hit from last year featuring Rihanna, under the pseudonym “Nils Sjöberg.” She was eventually outed as having a hand in her ex’s Top 10 smash, and the song’s official credits now include Swift’s name. She has performed it exactly twice (more on that later).

Aside from those three songs, the big music news of Swift’s post-1989 run has been where her previous output has been available. After famously locking herself in a stalemate against Spotify and agreeing to have only Apple Music serve as her streaming host, Swift unleashed her catalog upon all streaming services — Spotify, Tidal and Amazon included — on June 9, 2017, the same day that Katy Perry just so happened to release her new album, Witness. Four of Swift’s albums, including 1989, returned to the Billboard 200 albums chart following the streaming free-for-all.

TOURING

The entirety of the 1989 world tour was contained in 2015, and the 85 shows became that year’s biggest tour, taking in more than $200 million worldwide, per Billboard Boxscore. The big difference between 1989 and Swift’s previous tours, of course, was that she graduated to stadiums from arenas on her latest live run, and she’ll likely continue in that format whenever she goes back on the road. The tour was also captured in The 1989 World Tour Live, a concert film shot in Sydney and released in partnership with Apple Music in December 2015.

LIVE PERFORMANCES

Ten months after her 1989 tour wrapped up, Swift decided to put on a one-off show last October at the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix in Austin – her only performance of 2016, and the first time she played “This Is What You Came For” herself (in a solo piano version, no less!). “As a songwriter, the most rewarding feeling in the world is writing something and then having the crowd sing it back to you because they know the words,” Swift said during the show.

Swift played the track again at a pre-Super Bowl performance in Houston earlier this year, in an event dubbed the AT&T Presents DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night. She also played “Better Man” and “This Is What You Came For” at the show, which has been Swift’s only performance of 2017… so far.


MUSIC VIDEOS

By now, we’ve all seen the seven music videos that came from the 1989 era. Some fun stats about them: the three biggest videos (“Shake It Off,” “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood”) have become Swift’s first to cross the 1 billion mark on YouTube, while the controversial “Wildest Dreams” clip is one of Swift’s five most-viewed videos ever at this point (“You Belong With Me,” from Fearless, rounds out that top tier). The live video for “New Romantics” was unveiled as an Apple Music exclusive, and has 66 million YouTube views to date. Joseph Kahn directed four of the videos, including “Out of the Woods,” which was filmed in New Zealand.

AWARDS/ACHIEVEMENTS

Essentially, Swift released 1989 in October 2014 and the accolades started pouring in almost immediately after. She was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2014, and “Shake It Off” was nominated for record of the year and song of the year at the 2015 Grammys. The song didn’t take home either prize, but Swift nabbed the big one the following year, when 1989 won album of the year at the Grammys in 2016. After previously winning the award for Fearless, Swift became the first female solo performer to win multiple AOTYs at the Grammys.

The Grammy win (along with two others in 2016) was simply the crown jewel in a long list of major achievements in the past 1000 days. Swift also won Video of the Year at the MTV VMAs in 2015 for “Bad Blood,” was given the 50th Anniversary Milestone Award at the ACM Awards that year, and 1989 became only the fifth album ever to spend its entire first year in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart. All told, 1989 has sold 6.1 million copies one thousand days into its existence, according to Nielsen Music, and in June, the RIAA certified Swift for having moved 100 million song units, second only to Rihanna among all artists in their rankings.

ADS

It’s worth noting that, while never commercially released, the sound of Swift rapping along to Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” does exist in this fair world. In a popular Apple Music ad, Swift rhymes along with the song on a treadmill before face-planting in epic fashion; she also toasted Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” and The Darkness’ “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” in separate Apple ads. Consider the homages a subtle co-sign of not just the songs in question, but of Apple’s playlist curation.

FRIEND SUPPORT

The cornerstone of Swift’s post-1989 music activity may very well be the role of “hypewoman” — that is, building up her pals and supporting their music online. She’s got mad love for squad members Lorde, Haim and Selena Gomez, and former tour mate Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” might have very well gotten a mini-bump due to an Instagram post in its favor. The biggest revelation for casual Swifies: Taylor’s still an enormous Kings of Leon fan! “I’ve been waiting for this album for SO LONG and it’s insane, you need it in your life,” she wrote of the rock band’s WALLS. Same with the 1989 follow-up, Taylor.

“Chloe? Chloe, where are you, we have to go–” I walked in the bathroom to find Chloe sitting on the counter, Harry behind her with her hair in his fingers and an elastic in his mouth. “So you didn’t like how I did your hair, huh?” I smirked.

“Daddy braids better, mum, we didn’t want to hurt your feelings.”

I laughed as Harry secured a braid in her hair, “You didn’t hurt my feelings, sweetie.”

“Alright,” Harry lifted Chloe down from the counter, “You’re ready for the red carpet, princess. Show me your walk and pose.“

Chloe walked a few steps, hand on hips as Harry narrated, "Walk, walk, walk, pose.” Chloe smiled at the hypothetical cameras. “Walk, walk, walk, pose.” Chloe blew a kiss to the camera. “Perfect! They’re gonna love you.”

☠️ 20 YEARS OF ONE PIECE ☠️

  • 10/20 Favorite friendships.

Luffy and Usopp: BEST FRIENDS. This one it’s my favorite of all. They are all friends and they all have different relationship as friends, but this one honestly I love this. Like it might be because both are the same age and enjoy the same things, but they are always having fun and being excited for the same things, they understand their stupidness. And like, it works since Luffy is a reckless guy and Usopp is coward so the scenes between these two are really funny. The fight they had because of Merry in water 7 broke my heart because Luffy didn’t want to do it, he had to as a captain. Like I cried a lot with them but I was really happy how they fixed everything. And even if they make joke and stuff, Usopp respects him a lot too. And protects his dream as well. HE DOESN’T ALLOW ANYONE TO LAUGH OF LUFFY’S DREAM.

Zoro and Luffy: this friendship it’s loyalty more than anything. They are all loyal to Luffy as captain and friend but Zoro definitely wins this award. I love this one just like I love the first one. Luffy’s personality works well with every member I have to say. Zoro is a lazy guy and a really serious man as well. And he respects Luffy more than anything, even if he acts like a kid, he recognizes him as his captain more than anything. And he protects his dream more than his own and that’s honestly beautiful. He was wiling to give up about his dream if he can protects his like like COME ON THIS FRIENDSHIP ITS GOALS. And Luffy as well, he trusts Zoro so much. Like I really love when Luffy is like: if Zoro says he will, then he will. I’ll leave it to him. He loves his vice-captain so much.

Zoro and Sanji: it’s actually a rivalry for not a real reason actually. Since little garden they established this rivalry because they couldn’t decide which of them brought the biggest animal to cook. This one it’s specially for comedy and I love it too. Like they fight for the tiniest thing but when it comes to help and works as teammates, they can relay on each other to accomplish that goal. Even if they fight a lot, I’d say it’s a good friendship between these two. I really loved how back in Foxy’s arc, Sanji asked him to be friends for 10 minutes and unite so they can win the game and Zoro was agree. When it comes to seriousness they have pretty much the same thoughts as well. And their nicknames are actually funny as well; ero-cook and marimo~ // Even if they can’t admit it they actually care for each other, they wouldn’t be the same with their partner of fights.

Nami and Luffy: Well, even if I secretly ship them as a couple, even if I don’t make a big deal for it since One piece it’s pretty awesome without romance and I would hate to see ships wars because of this, I’m going to focus on them like that; Luffy treats all his friends the same, of course he takes care of girls in his crew, I’m not saying they are weak but I bet he understands sometimes they need to be protected I guess. Nami’s personality it’s of the girl that doesn’t understand Luffy’s stupidness and it’s always hitting him for the ideas he jumps with. Even if she doesn’t posses haki lol. But never mind, this friendship/relationship have been developing through the series just like the others. At the beginning Nami didn’t trust any of them, but Luffy did since he met her. Luffy was the first one Nami asked for help after 8 years. I believe he became someone in her life with who she feels safe and protected from that moment. She’s the navigator and he’s the captain, she’s a part of as I call it, the coward group and it’s always arguing with a Luffy about the islands they should go, so at first she was always trying to persuade Luffy and avoid danger and the and Luffy would always win. But I feel like she doesn’t feel scare at all anymore. She respects him as captain even if she acts/looks like the actual captain sometimes and Luffy doesn’t seem mad at all about this, and what about him? Well, he decided she was going to be his navigator even after she betrayed them… even if Johnny told then she killed Usopp. He didn’t believe so..

Chopper and Usopp: as I mentioned with Luffy, they are around the same age and enjoy the same things like Franky’s creations. Chopper cares a lot for all his friends, but he spends most of his time with Usopp and is always believing what he says. I really like this friendship. Back in Water 7 when Luffy won against Usopp, he went down to take care of Usopp in tears even if he didn’t have to, that was honestly really touching for me because chopper really cares about his being. And well, they are really funny together!

Robin - Franky - Brook: I haven’t related them in special relationship YET. If you read above, I have focused in the firsts arcs and I was used to see all of them together. At least Robin, I really like her relationship with Usopp. He’s always scaring the shit of him and that’s really funny and she’s like the crew mom and chopper’s moma, she’s really cute with him. Brook and Franky joined the crew and fit perfectly with them. They create a really good friendship atmosphere. Franky Is really funny as well with Usopp and Chopper. And Brook can have a good time with all of them too, specially with Sanji from my perspective, pervs.

Nami - Usopp and Chopper: this is a really funny group. The coward group. Whenever they are together you know it will be fun. Just remember thriller back arc. I laughed a lot with them. Like they are cowards but when they have to fight, they fight. Normally it’s really funny when they are together so I really like them!

Sanji - Zoro - Luffy: The monster trio. Do I have to write much reasons about this one? They are the strongest of straw hats crew and I really love how Sanji and Zoro are always taking away the enemies when the boss is coming. I really love the way they act around each other too, they are really funny too because Luffy is the one who jumps with stupid ideas and he would get hurt in s comic way from both rivals. This team works really well when it comes to fight. I really love seeing them together. And the fact that they can beat anyone but the three of them lose against Nami by herself lol.

A Case For A “Sonically-Cohesive” Reputation

Sonically-cohesive is arguably the most controversial phrase in this fandom.

It all started back when Taylor was describing the 2014 Grammy awards in one of those amazing Grammy pro session videos.  Red was up for album of the year.  She heard “Reeee” – They said “Reeeeeeeandom Access Memories.”

Source: t-swift

She thought she won.  She didn’t.  It was a tragic night that has gone down in history.  A night we will never forget.

That night, Taylor stuffed her face and got to work.  How were Red and Speak Now different from Fearless, her only album that had succeeded in winning Album of the Year (at the time)?

Originally posted by greysswifts

She realized that they were not “sonically cohesive,” but Fearless was.  

So on 1989, Taylor’s number one goal was to create a sonically cohesive pop album.  No more country/pop.  She would make sure that the entire album was well-integrated and unified – that each song sounded unique, of course, but that they all sounded like they were from the same family.

Now, Taylor went to great lengths to ensure that 1989 was sonically cohesive.  She had Max Martin co-produce with her and stuck to a small team in the songwriting process.  

On reputation, she seems to have worked with the same few people, more or less.  While we know very little about the album, we can infer that much from the first two singles.

I’ve read a lot on here about how “different” Look and Ready are from each other.  How their differences “prove” that this album won’t be sonically cohesive.  No one knows whether or not this is true, but I do find that claim interesting. 

When I listen to Look and Ready, they definitely sound related, at least in the same way that Blank Space could be related to Out Of The Woods.  

Here’s what we know:

1. On LWYMMD, Taylor worked with Jack.  For Ready, she worked with Max, Shellback, and Ali.  These people all know her well.  They know how she writes.  If she wanted to have an album that was not sonically cohesive, my thought would be that she would choose entirely different people to work with than before.  You might argue that we don’t know who she worked with because we haven’t heard the album.  But, she intentionally chose to release these two songs first.  If the sound was going to be all over the place, she might want us to know that from the get-go.

2. There are no bonus tracks.  Every song made the main album.  Does this tell us anything?  Maybe not.  But maybe it tells us that she is telling one story, leaving nothing out.  I know a lot of people who never heard New Romantics or You Are In Love because they only listened to the standard version.  She is doing something very cohesive with this era.  Does that mean it’s sonically cohesive?  Maybe not.  But I’d imagine it does…

3.  Taylor’s most successful albums have been sonically cohesive.  Her best lyrics (you can fight me on this if you want) were on her albums that were not sonically cohesive in the same way that Fearless and 1989 were. This little tidbit we’ve received about stronger lyrics on reputation make me think that she is embracing the strengths of all of her albums.  The sonically cohesive strength of 1989 and the lyrical strength of Red.  Now that is something she has never done before.

4.  Both Look and Ready are dark and twisty in their lyrics and their sound.  No, of course they don’t sound exactly the same.  But they are definitely both Meredith anthems!  Both Merediths – the cat and the character.  The lyrics have haunting metaphors and imagery and melodies, giving us these complex, fiery emotions.  Kind of like how all of the songs on 1989 felt hopeful and free, and all of the songs on Fearless felt young and dreamy.

5.  Lastly,  there is a difference between not doing promo/dealing with the media and not wanting Grammys.  Taylor is one of the most ambitious people EVER.  I find it very hard to believe that she would do anything without thinking about Grammys.  And that is not a weakness or flaw – that is a strength.  She is successful and wants to be rewarded for her hard work.  She wants to be an acclaimed songwriter AND overall musician/artist.  

When has she been most acclaimed?  
You guessed it, when her work was sonically cohesive.

Well, that’s all I got.  I’d love to discuss this more.  Send me an ask!

Imagine skipping class with Chris. (Part B)

A/N: Part 3B! Oh God, I was going to wait till tomorrow but I’m just too excited! I’m really happy with how this one turned out. You can read the previous parts here: (Unexpected Reader - Part 1/Part 2/Part 3A) Enjoooooy! X

Burbank; that was where Chris took you after breakfast in the cute little corner bistro you loved so much. He took you all the way there to give you a tour of Marvel Studios as well as introduce you to some of the people from the industry you were dying to be apart of. He even managed to get you a quick meeting with the very busy Kevin Fiege, who- thanks to Chris- promised he’d give you a meeting when you graduated from UCLA; an offer to which you squealed at the second you thought Kevin was out of earshot. He wasn’t, and it explained why Chris Evans would go through so much trouble for a girl people said was, “just a fan he met an airport.” You were sweet and humble and passionate, and Kevin wouldn’t be surprised if months later he’d heard Chris ended up dating you. The two of you clearly had a lot of chemistry, and he wasn’t blind to the way Chris looked at you; it may have been subtle, but it was definitely a look of love.

Love.

A strange concept; love. It could either be the simplest of things, or the most complicated. Unfortunately for the two of you, it was the latter. Neither of you wanted to admit anything, due to fear of getting hurt. That was the thing about love, despite how wonderful it could make a person feel- there was also the chance of ruining an entire being. A wrong move, a poorly chosen word, bad timing- all of these were factors capable of tearing a soul in pieces.

Chris couldn’t do that to you, he couldn’t take away that light you carried despite how dark you thought you were. You were the kind of girl who still believed she could meet the love of her life in a coffee shop; who believed in love at first sight; who wanted to marry as soon as possible; who didn’t want to date casually; who was a hopeless romantic; who thought love was just like the movies. You had an incredibly innocent heart that he both wanted to force his way into, but also protect. He wanted you to have a lifetime of happiness, and he wasn’t yet sure if he could provide that for you. But God, he was starting to realize you were a girl he wasn’t going to get over easily. If he found out tomorrow you were going on a date with another man, he’d both be ecstatic and heartbroken.

Chris took his eyes off the road for a brief second to throw a glance your way. It’d been fifteen minutes since you got into the car, but you were still smiling at the pass hanging around your neck. He’d made it himself, and it had both your name and the phrase “VIP - Chris Evans’ Very Important Person” on it. You looked over at him as he turned back to the road, smiling when you saw him smile. You still couldn’t believe your luck; it’d been exactly forty-three days since you met Chris and you still couldn’t believe your luck. You woke with a smile on your face each morning- not just because of the ‘good morning’ texts he’d sent you, but because you woke knowing you had him in your life. It was a pretty freaking amazing feeling, one you hoped you’d never have to give up.

“Thank you for today, Chris.” You told him, smiling; he glanced at you and smiled back, nodding. “You’re right about it being worth my time, I couldn’t imagine spending today any other way. This has just been an absolute dream come true, honestly-” you cut yourself off, chuckling, “you’re the best, the absolute best.”

“It’s not over yet,” he threw another smile your way. “We’ve still got one more stop before we call it a day, and um-” he pulled his car to a stop; you looked out and saw the Dolby Theatre. “You might want to do a quick costume change.” He told you then got out of the car before you could question him further. “C'mon,” he called as he knocked on the back windshield.

You got out of the car and chuckled when you saw him hold up two dress bags. One held a navy blue tux, and the other held your old prom dress. “Where the hell did you get that from?” You laughed, taking the bag from him. “You didn’t break into my room while I was sleeping, did you?”

“God, no,” he laughed. “Ava did.” He told you and you chuckled. Of course Ava did, your best friend would do anything Chris asked her to because she too was a huge fan of his. You’d met her on Tumblr a few years ago, connecting through your love for Chris Evans and writing, and only recently met her in real life. She was yet another wonderful thing you needed to thank Chris for, because without him to write about- you would’ve never met Ava. “I told her about today and she offered her services.”

“Isn’t she a doll,” you bit sarcastically, then laughed when he did. “Are you serious about changing?” You quizzed and he nodded, walking towards the entrance as he draped the dress bag over his shoulder. “Oh come on,” you ran after him, “I don’t want to put on a gown!”

“You’re going to be very under dressed.” He pushed the door open and beckoned you in with his head. You stared at him, not saying anything or walking into anywhere. You huffed when he chuckled, “it’ll be fun, Y/N. Trust me,” he said with a smile that you’d never- in your forty-three days of knowing him- been able to say no to.

“Fine,” you sighed and stomped into the building. “Is there a bath-” You cut yourself off when he pointed you in the direction of the bathroom. “Just so you know, I might not even fit that dress.” You told him as you stomped towards the female bathroom like a pouty child; he followed behind you, chuckling softly. “I’m not as slim now as I was at my prom.”

“You still look great to me,” he told you and you felt heat rise to your cheeks. You bit back your smile as you glanced back at him. “Get dressed,” he instructed and you nodded, “then meet me at the stage.”

• • • • • • • •

Chris waited on the stage patiently for you, fiddling with his cuffs and sleeves. “I look ridiculous,” he heard your voice and looked up as you walked down the aisle towards the stage. His lips parted in awe, then formed into a smile as he appreciated how breathtaking you looked in your simple, but beautifully elegant, chiffon gown. “I mean-” you lifted your gown to display the sneakers you were wearing. “You could’ve at least got Ava to steal me some heels too,” you joked.

“You look beautiful.” He complimented as he walked down the steps to meet you; his heart beating as fast against his chest at the sight of you, as your heart was against your chest at the sight of him. “Now come on,” he held out his arm for you to take, “I want to show you something.”

“Like what?” You asked, letting him lead you on stage. “We’re already inside this amazing theatre, I mean- this is where they host the Oscars every year.” You pulled away from him to stroll the stage. “This place has held the talents of Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington and Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino and-” You stopped when you realized Chris was smiling at you. “Of course,” you walked back over to him and poked his chest, “Chris Evans. A man who should have won Oscars upon Oscars by now.”

“As biased as you are, my number one fan,” he teased and you giggled, “I appreciate it. And yes,” he agreed as he looked around the place, smiling. “The theatre is amazing and I did bring you here to show you the interior. But-” he said and you turned to him, “I also brought you here to prepare you for your future.”

“And how are you preparing me for my future?”

“Come here,” he used his head to beckon you towards him. You walked over hesitantly then tensed when he moved behind you, gently grabbing your arms. “This is where you’re going to be one day,” he whispered into your ear, smiling. He was having trouble remembering what he’d planned to say to you because your perfume was incredibly intoxicating and all he could think of was kissing your neck. “You’re going to be standing up here, looking down at everyone you’d thought you’d only see on your screen, thanking them and your loved ones for taking a chance on you and supporting you to your first Oscar win.”

You smiled as you imagined what Chris was saying. It was almost like you could feel the Golden Statue in your hand; the weight and the sturdiness of it. You closed your eyes and looked up; it was like the heat of a thousand lights were kissing your skin. Your ears could hear the thundering applause and the cheers as the entire audience rose to their feet to give you the standing ovation you deserved. You’d look out into the crowd and smile; smile at the people you’d worked with, those who’d helped you get you the award. That was the dream, it’d always been the dream. Just like Chris was part of it, he was part of everything. Even as you closed your eyes to picture a scene where you just won an award of the highest honor, you saw him. You saw him in the crowd and you smiled because knowing him, having him believe in you the way he did, having him in your life- that all meant so much more to you than winning an award.

“I can’t wait to see you up here,” he told you as he released you from his grip. His hand forgot you were just a friend and not his girlfriend, and took it upon itself to brush your cascading hair over your shoulder. “You are going to go to amazing places, Y/N. I promise you that,” he said with so much sincerity that you felt your eyes well with tears.

“Oh God,” your voice quivered as you sniffled, trying your best not to start crying. Chris’ eyes narrowed as he gently wrapped his arm around your elbow to turn you towards him. “These are happy tears,” you quickly told him when you saw concern in his eyes. “I’m um-” you reached up to brush your tears away, but he beat you to it. “I’m just really touched that you believe in me.”

“Of course I do,” he smiled and lowered his hand to take your in his; he squeezed it gently. “You are incredibly talented, Y/N. I am so glad you decided to pursue screen writing because- God, it’d be a waste if you didn’t. You have a way with words that not many do, and I have no doubt that it’s going to take you up here one day.”

“Because of you,” you said and he shook his head.

“No,” he said. “Because of you. With or without me, you were going to find your way here and I’m…” He trailed off, smiling at how beautiful you looked despite your teary eyes and runny nose. “I’m going to be standing in that audience applauding your incredible talent, and wishing that I’d one day be lucky enough to be able to direct or even act in one of your flawless pieces.”

“You’re going to make me cry,” you chuckled because it was your only way to stop yourself from crying. He smiled and brushed the tears that had escaped off your cheeks. “Thank you, Chris,” you told him as you forced your way into his arms, hugging him tightly; he’d hugged you back without hesitation. “You have no idea how much all of this means to me.”

“You’re welcome.”

Part 4A

Façade [Epilogue]

Pairing: Chanyeol x Reader

Warning: Language

Summary: You thought you wanted fame. You thought you wanted this.But a part of you still yearned for that normal life, a normal love: finding someone that you love and will love you back with all his heart. So soon enough, this became too much for you.


PrologueChapter 1Chapter 2Chapter 3Chapter 4Chapter 5Chapter 6Chapter 7Epilogue



Chanyeol is nervous.


He’s practically shaking, and even though he’s already done this once, he feels even more nervous than the first time.

anonymous asked:

Can u do a imagine with like the reader being jealous when everyone talks to Bakugou or midoriya Thank you I read your blog it's really looks like you have good writing

Thanks so much; that makes me so happy! 

In this imagine, with Izuku, it could be taken as frienship or romance, while with Bakugou, it’s definitely romantic. Hope you like it!


Warning: A bit of cursing. 

BAKUGOU:

You never thought of yourself as a particularly jealous person.

But apparently you were wrong because you turned out to be one jealous motherfucker.

Could anyone really blame you though? You had never had to deal with this kind of thing before. Sure, your boyfriend was well-known and strong, but it was more of a notoriety than actual popularity as most were too terrified to approach him. But in this kind of situation, you understood why everyone was crowding around him. That didn’t mean you had to like it.

“Bakugou, partner with me!”

“What?! No, Bakugou and I are bros; he’s pairing up with me!”

Aizawa had given the class another partner training exercise, but this one was a bit different in that the winners would be awarded extra credit points in any class they wished. The class instantly became a warzone as people, especially those that desperately needed the points (i.e. Kaminari, Mina, etc.), clamoured and practically crawled over one another to get to someone that would be most likely to win that number 1 spot. Obviously, the top choices were Bakugou and Todoroki. Students crowded around the two powerful boys, begging them to be on their team, and when Todoroki partnered with Midoriya, everyone immediately turned to Bakugou.

“Come on, man, we worked great together during the sports festival!”

“He’s working with me!”

Your right eye twitched as your fists clenched. You hadn’t even gotten the chance to get out of your seat yet with how fast the rest had gotten up to find their partner. You found no need to rush as you assumed you’d be with Bakugou. Like you always were.

“Doesn’t Bakugou-chan always work with (y/n)-chan?”

“Well, (l/n) is smart; she doesn’t need the extra credit points! I’m sure she can spare Bakugou for one day.”

Since when did that electric dumbass make your decisions for you? Midoriya backed away after seeing your form trembling with anger. You were pretty laid back most of the time, but he knew that your rage could be as destructive as your boyfriend’s, a terrifying fact most were unaware of.

Finally, you couldn’t contain your fury. You stood, your chair screeching violently as it was pushed out, though most didn’t notice in the commotion to find a partner. You stomped your way to the crowd, pushing people out of your way. After giving Kaminari a particularly rough shove to make him back the fuck away from your boyfriend, you dropped yourself into Bakugou’s lap and wrapped your arms around his neck. Then you pulled him into a searing kiss that caused silence to fall over the room. Some gaped, others blushed, while a few stared in envy. Aizawa just rolled his eyes. Kids and their drama…

You pressed your lips against his roughly and his hands came down to hold your hips. A few moments passed until your lips separated, but you kept your arms wound tightly around his neck as you looked back to glare viciously at the other students.

“Back. Off. Katsuki’s mine.”

Bakugou stared at you for a moment then smirked at the class. “Well, that’s how it is.” The crowd immediately dispersed as no one wanted to test just how far you were willing to go to prove that statement. You turned to Bakugou again, an angry pout on your face. He had on his own smug expression. “Jealous, much?”

“Shut. Up.”

The two of you won the training exercise, gaining extra credit points neither of you really needed, much to the chagrin of almost every one of your classmates.


MIDORIYA: 

“Nice job, Midoriya! You held up well against Bakugou’s relentless attacks! That was super manly of you!”

“You were so cool, Deku-kun!”

You watched as people crowded around Izuku, a feeling you didn’t quite like bubbling in your stomach. Yesterday had been the combat training exercise with Izuku and Uraraka as heroes fighting against Bakugou and Iida that were playing the roles of villains. You were childhood friends with Izuku and Bakugou as your parents were close with theirs, and you were aware of their very rocky relationship. You had often had to get between the two to scold Bakugou for bullying the other boy and encourage Izuku to be more confident in himself. But even though you were aware of how they felt about each other, the battle between them had still horrified you. You were glad that they were both okay in the end (if you could call a destroyed arm and terribly wounded pride as ‘okay’).

The excitement still hadn’t died down as people praised Izuku for his valiant efforts. You shifted in your seat, unsure of why you felt so uneasy. You should be happy, right? Izuku had had such a hard childhood, always being bullied for being Quirkless and weak. It was fantastic that he was making new friends! And you did feel happy for him, but…

School ended, and you and Izuku were walking to the station together as you always did. Usually, Uraraka and Iida would join you as well, but today, they were apparently both busy. It was quiet between the two of you, which felt strange as you guys always had something to talk about.

All of a sudden, you stopped. Your companion didn’t notice at first and kept walking forward a few steps when a hand tugging on the back of his shirt made him stop. He turned back questioningly to find you looking down at your feet. “(y/n)-chan,” Izuku began hesitantly, “are you okay?” He noticed that you had been acting odd the entire day and was wondering what was wrong.

“I…”  You took a second to find the right words. “You made some new friends, right?”

He wasn’t sure where you were going with this. He thought of Uraraka and Iida and a few others that had kindly reached out to him, and his heart warmed. “Yeah, I think so.”

“But… but you won’t forget about me, will you?” He slowly started putting the pieces together. “Even if you make new friends, we’ll always be best friends, right?”

Izuku smiled softly at you and turned to face you. “Of course we will be.”

Your shoulders relaxed, the tension leaving you and you let out a small sigh of relief. “Okay. Good.” That was the only answer you needed. Because you knew Izuku, and you knew he would never lie to you. He took your hand in his, and the two of you walked to the station together side-by-side.

All was right in the world once again.

And So It Goes

Requested by @laneygthememequeenI was wondering if you’d take a request of a part two of too late, maybe where the reader comes to sing at a stark charity event with the avengers there and she covers another song of another artist and blows the crowd away and Steve approaches her but she tells him she’s over him and she’s already got someone else “who actually loves her”. If you don’t want to do it, it’s alright. I love your work. Take care lovely!

Summary: After you’ve established yourself as a recording artist, your schedule has kept you busy, but you’re more than willing to help out Tony Stark, a friend from your past. When you run into an old flame, Steve Rogers, he’s more than ecstatic to rekindle the relationship he lost years ago. 

Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader

Read “Too Late”!


You smiled as you stepped off stage for the night. The stadium was filled with over sixty thousand people who sang their hearts out to you and the very thought that you’ve accomplished your dream made you feel like you were on top of the world. 

You changed out of your sweaty clothes and thanked everyone involved in the show that night. Although you were sad that this was the last night of your world tour, you were happy to be home and relax for a while before your schedule would be crazy with interviews and filming for a new movie you were casted in. 

Fans were lined up by the gate and your security didn’t want to let you near them, but you begged and pleaded. They gave in and you grinned, thanking them before greeting your fans. 

“Y/N! Will you sign this for me?” one asked. 

“Of course!” you replied. 

“Can I take a photo with you?” 

“Yes, most definitely.” You smiled at the camera as the fan clicked the button. 

“You mean so much to me. Thank you for your songs,” another said. You clutched your heart and gave the fan the biggest smile.

“Thank you for loving it.” 

After a while, your security urged you to leave and you apologised to everyone you hadn’t had the chance to meet. You hopped into the car and was greeted by Shelby, your manager. 

“And she does it again,” Shelby joked. You laughed and high-fiver her, buckling your seat belt before resting your head on her shoulder. 

“Man, I’m so tired. I think I’m gonna pass out before we get back to the hotel.” 

“Well, you can sleep once we’re inside the room. You might have to greet fans at the hotel, but I’m more than happy to escort them away for you.” You shook your head. 

“No, no, I want to meet them.” 

“But you’re so tired,” she pointed out. 

“Yeah, but they waited. I don’t want to disappoint. Call the pizza place by the hotel and order a few boxes for them.” Shelby smiled and did as you told her before putting her phone down. 

“You’re so humble. It’s nice to see humility in this industry.” 

Shelby had been your manager after a string of people who wanted to keep you famous only because you had been thrusted into fame, pretty much as you started releasing new music. They didn’t care about your fans or about what you wanted to write, but Shelby was the one who use her voice to urge your label to let you write and produce your own music. Good thing, too. 

You greeted fans outside of your hotel and they thanked you for the pizza. When you made your way into your hotel room, you looked at the pile of opened envelopes sitting on the glass desk by the bed. They were cards that said your name. The GRAMMYs were a mere week ago, but you hadn’t had time to travel back to your home in Los Angeles to put them away. You were nominated for six awards and won five of them, making you the most awarded artist that night.

As you were about to brush your teeth, your phone rang and you sprinted to the bed to answer it. 

“Hello?” you asked, not recognising the number. 

“Y/N, you never fail to amaze me.” You smiled at the voice. Tony Stark, who had been your biggest supporter, was someone you hadn’t been able to see in person for a long time. He always made sure you knew he and the team supported you, whether it was buying multiple copies of your albums or sending you flowers to your hotel rooms. He hadn’t been at The GRAMMYs due to a conflict and you were saddened that you couldn’t greet an old friend. 

“Do you want to tell me why I don’t recognise your number?”

“I’m calling form Banner’s phone,” he explained. “You two haven’t had the chance to meet yet. Very nice and smart, like you.” You chuckled. 

“You are still the charmer, Stark.”

“Who would I be if I wasn’t? I’m here to ask you a favour, but I’m sure it’s one you’ll enjoy.”

“And what would that be?” You sat on your bed and crossed your legs. 

“I’d like you to sing at my company party,” he proposed. “Sing a few songs, drink some drinks, mingle with the team and then some. How does that sound?” You grinned at the thought of seeing your old friends again, your mind briefly thinking of Steve. He was the one you hadn’t seemed in a long time, but you didn’t feel the way you had before. 

“That sounds like a wonderful idea, Tony.” 

“Good, because I may or may not have promised everyone who I invited that you’ll be there.” You laughed. 

“When’s the party?” 

“I’ll send all of the details to your manager. For now, I’d really like to catch up. It’s been so long since we last spoke.” 

You sighed. “It’s been a minute or two. Things have been so hectic, but I really wouldn’t have it any other way. I missed you at The GRAMMYs.” 

“I wish I could’ve seen you win, Y/N. But, the Avengers had a mission and I had to find out the results when I got home. Congratulations, by the way!” 

“Thank you, Tony. Thank you for believing in me, for always believing in me.” 

“We all do,” Tony said. “Even Steve.” 

“Is he still with Kelsey?” 

“Oh, no. They broke up a little while ago. It was something about him finding Kelsey kissing someone who wasn’t him.” You cringed and felt bad for Steve, him catching her in the act. 

“Ouch, that’s gotta hurt.” 

“Tell me about it. He didn’t really complain about it after it happen. Steve kind of stopped talking about his love life and focused on the missions.” 

“Well, good for him. He shouldn’t be with someone who cheated on him.” 

Tony chuckled. “You know, for someone who was his ex-girilfriend, you don’t sound like an ex-girlfriend.” 

“It’s been a couple of years. It doesn’t really bother me now and I don’t think Steve’s a bad person. He’s made some bad decisions, but everyone does. He’s Captain America, for Pete’s sake. Isn’t he the one who oozes honesty?” Tony laughed at your joke.

“You’re one of his biggest supporters.”

“How could I not be? He’s the one keeping America safe and he’s the one keeping kids in school with those ridiculous videos.” 

“True, true. I’m glad you’re not harbouring hate, though. You don’t deserve that.”

“Thank you, Tony. If you don’t mind, I’m gonna catch some shut eye. Tonight was a blast, but I’m pooped.” 

Tony laughed and told you he’d send the details to your manager again before hanging up. You slept peacefully and didn’t wake up until late in the morning. 


The night of the party came sooner than you thought and you smoothed out your skin-tight blue dress, entering the building. The party was already in full swing and a waiter offered you a glass of alcohol, but you declined. Tony spotted you pretty quickly and pulled you over to where the rest of the team was. 

“Y/N, oh my goodness. It’s been way too long,” Wanda said as she leaned in for a hug. You held her in a tight embrace before moving on to Natasha, Clint, and eventually, hugged every member except for Steve, who was elsewhere. 

“Things have been rough in terms of scheduling,” you said, “but how could I pass up a moment to party with my friends?” The group laughed. 

“Your newest album had me in tears,” Sam joked. “I mean, come on, that song you produced with the most iconic R&B legend? Classic.” 

“Let’s not forget the last single you released before it came out,” Bucky added. “I know I’m supposed to be The Winter Soldier, but I cried like a bitch.” You laughed and leaned your head on Bucky’s shoulder, closing your eyes for a brief moment to take in the familiarity of being with your closest friends. 

“Thanks, guys. It means so much to me that you’ve been keeping up with what I do. And what about you guys? You’ve been kicking so much ass lately.” 

Tony beamed at you. “We do it just to impress you.” You and the team shared a laugh before Steve joined in. 

“Y/N, is that you?” You turned around and faced Steve. He grew a stubble that complemented his manly physique. His suit hugged his body nicely and his hair was gelled back. 

“Steve, hello,” you said. He didn’t know what to do and he couldn’t help but rake his eyes over your body. He loved the way your dress hugged your curves and how your hair was loose. Steve thought you looked more mature and more established, and he loved that. 

“It’s been a while, hasn’t it?” 

“Definitely so. You’ve been busy with missions.”

“And you’ve been busy with, well, being a performer and all.” You two shared a laugh before Tony pulled you away. 

“Everyone’s asking for a few songs,” he said. You left Steve to his thoughts and stood on the stage, microphone in front of you on the stand. 

“So, it’s my understanding that you all came because Tony promised I’d sing.” The crowd laughed at your joke. “Well, good thing my schedule’s cleared up, otherwise Tony would look like an absolute fool.” The crowd laughed once again. “I’ve been in love with Makin’ Whoope! by Ella Fitzgerald for a while. I hope you don’t mind if I sing that song.” 

Steve smiled when you chose that song. He had heard you sing it a few too many times when you were both together and smiled at the memory. You hadn’t met his eyes, but he was desperate to meet yours. You looked like you were in your element as you sang, your eyes closed and your hands roaming the microphone stand. 

In that moment, Steve realised his feelings for you had resurfaced. His stomach did flips and his heart felt like it was beating at a million miles per hour. He licked his lips and sipped his drink. Steve didn’t take his eyes off of you the entire time you were singing. He thought about how he broke your heart when he left you for Kelsey, and how he felt more in love with you in this moment than when you told him you didn’t care if he was Captain America. 

Steve was the first one to clap when you stepped off the stage after performing several songs.

“Wow,” Steve breathed when you met with him. “Just, wow.” You laughed. 

“I’m glad I render you speechless. If I recall, that’s hard to do.” 

“You got that right.” Steve looked at you. “Listen, Y/N, I’ve missed you. I miss us and I can’t help but beat myself up every time I think about how I let someone as amazing as you go.” 

“Steve -”

“No, please here me out. I know I was a bad boyfriend towards the end of our break up, but I swear that I’m ready to give all of me to you. Seeing you again made me feel like a kid on Christmas.” You sighed and looked at Steve. 

“While I appreciate your honesty, Steve, I don’t think I can take you up on that offer. I’ve found someone else who makes me happy.” Steve’s heart dropped.

“Who?” he croaked. 

“Myself.” Steve nodded, understanding that you wanted to be independent. “You’re a good person, Steve, and I’ll always be rooting for you.” 

“Thanks, Y/N. We’ll still see each other, right?” 

“Of course. I don’t believe in making things awkward when we have friends who care about us both.” Steve laughed and nodded. 

“Yeah, that’s true. I’ll see you around, right?” You nodded. 

“We will.” You meant it this time. 

Steve watched you asked you walked away, greeting everyone who came up to talk to you. His heart leaped into his throat and he was sad to watch you go, but he didn’t want you to feel like you couldn’t be yourself. He was damned that he could not longer hold you in his arms, but he was happy that you weren’t stepping out of his life like he let you do once before.

Tripping Over the Blue Line (9/45)

It’s a transition. That’s what Emma’s calling it. She’s transitioning from one team to another, from one coast to another and she’s definitely not worried. Nope. She’s fine. Really. She’s promised Mary Margaret ten times already. So she got fired. Whatever. She’s fine, ready to settle into life with the New York Rangers. She’s got a job to do. And she doesn’t care about Killian Jones, captain of the New York Rangers. At all.

He’s done. One more season and he’s a free agent and he’s out. It’s win or nothing for Killian. He’s going to win a Stanley Cup and then he’s going to stop being the face of the franchise and he’s going to go play for some other garbage team where his name won’t be used as puns in New York Post headlines. That’s the plan. And Emma Swan, director of New York Rangers community relations isn’t going to change that. At all.

They are both horrible liars.


Rating: Mature
Content Warnings: Swearing, eventual hockey-type violence
AN: Happy (pre)season! Henry’s going to stick around for awhile, Roland Locksley knows more about hockey than anyone else in this story and Emma can’t stop texting Killian. As always, I am constantly thankful for @laurnorder, @distant-rose & @beautiful-swan, who are are all just a goddamn delight. 
Living on Ao3, FF.net and tag’ed up on Tumblr as well. 


She’d told Henry.

She hadn’t meant to.

If it had been any other situation or any other kid, Emma probably wouldn’t have said anything. She’d have kept those memories and experiences and a very distinct string of never-ending disappointments pushed under metaphorical lock and key like they always were. She never told anyone that kind of stuff.

When their idol gf wins an award and sees them in the crowd

The scene: This was the day!  It was THE day!  All your hard work had to come to something, right?  All the extra practicing, the last nights, the injuries, the perseverance!  It all came down to this.  The announcer pulls the tab of the envelop he’s holding and reads the name listed inside….announcing:  YOUR NAME!

Jin:

Pride, joy, happiness, a giant grin, and love, lots and lots of love in his eyes.  That’s what you see when you make eye contact with him.  If you weren’t crying already, you might be now.  Everything is happening so fast, but damn if it’s not effecting you to see your man out there in the crowd grinning like it was HIM who won the award.  The two of you might be separated by tons of other people, tables, etc, but you’ve never felt closer.  Giving your speech is easy, because he’s all you see in the crowd and boi when you say his name as a part of your thanks, he might just tear up a bit.  This is a proud moment for him.  He knows how hard you worked.  He knows the long nights.  He knows because he was right there with you the whole time.  He was the one who brought you food when you forgot to eat.  He was the one who bandaged up your ankle when you fell.  He was the one who held you when you were frustrated and wanted to give up.  You can expect a giant hug when the whole event is over.  “You did it, jagiyah!  I’m so proud of you!”

He’s a quiet one, but that blank expressionless face everyone is used to will instantly melt into one of pride and happiness.  His gummy smile will make an appearance as he cheers for you.  When you make eye contact with him in the crowd, he’ll give you a look that clearly says ‘I told you, you could do it’, with that cheeky smirk and a raised eyebrow.  He’ll be the type to turn to the guy next to him and be like ‘that’s my girl’.  Just like his music he takes such pride in you and everything you do.  He sees the same ambition in you that he sees in himself.  He knows the struggles of getting lost in your work, both of you are guilty of it, but that’s what makes this win so much more gratifying.  You struggled to make it and all of that struggling was worth it.  He had told you that over and over again every time you felt discouraged or just wanted to give up entirely.  I hope you like celebrating, cuz you likely have a trip to Hong Kong coming up. ;)  “Prove them wrong, baby.  That’s what you have to do no matter what.  Make them eat their words.  That’s when all the shit they give you becomes worth it.  You proved them wrong and now they can go fuck themselves.”
