getting blanked

looking back to when i was younger im totally baffled as to why i thought that antidepressants would change who i was, and that they were bad, or where i even got that from

just, i feel like there needs to be way more education on mental illness and treatments early on. because no one ever talked it through with us, not until we needed them and had to wrestle with the insecurities that came with it

iconic moments in the get down part 2:

  • shao drop kicking some rich white boy who used the phrase ‘nigga coke’
  • rara trying to ask a girl out
  • MYLENE’S TOY BOX PERFORMANCE
  • dizzee realizing and admitting to himself that he’s in love with thor
  • SHAO REALING DIZZEE IS IN LOVE WITH THOR AND REASSURING HIM 
  • shao’s real name is curtis!!!!!
  • rara using star wars metaphors to bring the dj kingdoms together
  • Shaolin Fantastic: Adventures in White Boy Land
  • the iconic scene with all the crews and kingdoms coming together to defend the get down
  • ZEKE GOT IN TO YALE

Concept:

Adrien Agreste is desperate. He’s tried asking Nino, but his friend sort of tripped his way into his relationship with Alya by mistake, and he’s not too proud to admit it. Plagg is no help. He’s asked Natalie, only to get a blank look. Plagg is NO help. Adrien’s even asked Gorilla. The man stared at him through the rearview mirror for a full minute before he burst out laughing and didn’t stop even after he dropped Adrien off at school. It was hard not to pout all day.

So now, Adrien is doing what he should have done in the first place - it’s SO obvious, after all. I mean, obviously HE’D be an expert.

‘Come in.’

Adrien walks into his father’s study with shoulders pushed back in his dad’s preferred posture.

‘What did you need?’ his father asked without looking up from his designs, seven different sketched clothes articles being shuffled around to create various combinations.

‘Yeah,’ Adrien said, trying to channel as much of Chat Noir as he could, ‘so dad, you and mum, huh?’

Gabriel’s hand paused delicately where it was poised over a pair of tan women’s trousers.

'I mean, you two…. Got together and everything, you know?’

Adrien watched in fascination as his father’s eyebrows rose very slowly. He wasn’t sure if it was a good sign so he went on.

'And mum was pretty. I mean, REAL pretty. Well of course she was pretty she was a model. But she was. Nice, I mean. And you TALKED to her. And it WORKED. Of course it worked, she married you and you had ME.’

Gabriel Agreste looked like he was almost afraid to talk, but he put the sketches down, steepled his fingers and finally looked up at his son.

'What are you asking exactly, Adrien? I thought Natalie had adequately covered the topic of human sexual reproduction even before you joined College?’

'Not that, dad!’ Adrien replied, throwing his hands up in the air in exasperation. 'I know all about that. Natalie tested me and everything and I got top marks. I’m asking about all the rest! That’s more important!’

Gabriel Agreste’s eyebrows joined his hairline. He managed to look vaguely nauseous, which was the face he made when he was in any way flustered or uncomfortable.

'All… The rest.’

'Yes!’ Adrien replied, the word exploding out of him when he couldn’t contain it anymore. A river of more words followed it once it had split the dam. 'The flowers and the complements, and the manners and kissing her hand, and being a gentleman! All of that! But I’ve tried it all and it hasn’t worked, so I MUST be doing something wrong! But you landed MUM, so you must have done something really right, so please dad, please teach me?’

Gabriel Agreste may as well be speechless for the first time in his life. He managed, 'What?’

'How to ask out a pretty girl!’ Adrien said in moan. 'The right way! So she says yes!’

Gabriel took off his spectacles to give himself time to think, polishing them off a silk hanky he always carried in his pocket, to give himself time to think. He didn’t think he’d be thinking about this already. But that was the problem with thinking. Once he put them back on, he’d formulated a reasonable response.

'I would like to know who the young lady in question is, before we go any further.’

Adrien’s brain went into panic mode. Darn, darn darn darn, he hadn’t thought of this! What was he going to say? He couldn’t say Ladybug obviously, his dad would never buy it. Quick, think of girls he knew! Girls he knew, girls he knew- ah! Girls from his class! Let’s see; Chloe- ah ah, hard nope, no way. Alya- nope, no way again, bro code. Mylene, yeah, super taken. Alix….. Just no. Darn it all, all he could think of were black hair and blue eyes and - hang on!

'Marinette Dupain-Cheng,’ Adrien squeaked. He hoped his cheeks feeling hot meant he would convince his father. Gabriel stared at him for a moment before he buzzed Natalie from the intercom on his desk.

'Natalie, send me the file of Dupain-Cheng Marinette from the College research folder.’

'Yes sir,’ Natalie chirped back. A few moments of heavy sweating later - for Adrien - his father’s phone pinged, and Gabriel picked it up, thumbing through whatever Natalie had sent. One eyebrow rose higher than the other in the expression his father often made when he was pleasantly surprised. Somehow, Adrien was irrationally pleased his father approved of Marinette, even though he realised he was now totally screwed.

'Designed an album for Jagged Stone,’ his father said, sounding reluctantly impressed. 'You will invite her to dinner next week.’

Gabriel put his phone down, seemingly done with the decision. Adrien tried desperately one more time.

'But, the advice!’

Gabriel looked him straight in the eyes.

'What I’m about to tell you does not leave this room,’ he said solemnly.

'Yes father!’ Adrien replied eagerly.

'The secret,’ Gabriel went on solemnly, 'is puns.’

'I knew it!’ Adrien hissed under his breath.

'Ah, but not just any puns,’ Gabriel admonished. 'That is why you have been unsuccessful. You need to find her interests, formulate humourous sentence arrangements. Drop them with the correct TIMING. Timing is crucial, especially in one particular way.’

Adrien fairly vibrated in his seat as he leaned forward, waiting for his dad to finally tell him the secret.

'You must take her hand, gently. Look her in the eyes, and tell her, without fanfare, how you feel about her. And how that makes you feel: in that order, son. Then, and only then, must you drop a very smart pun, about something she loves, and beg her to consider giving you a chance. Then walk away, let her think about it, and maybe drop another pun on your way out. Make her laugh, so that when she remembers you, she will smile. She’ll call you back within the week.’

Gabriel was smiling for the first time in a whole year, that Adrien remembered. He looked misty eyed and far away before he snapped out of it.

'Natalie,’ he said into the buzzer again, 'contact mlle Dupain-Cheng, invite her to dinner Friday week.’

'Yes sir. I will inform cook and the household.’

'Good.’ Gabriel looked at his son with a determined look on his face. 'I will allow you to see how it is done during this first dinner. I will then expect you to try and learn, with practice, during following invitations. Do not let me down.’

'No sir!’ Adrien replied excitedly. He raced to his room, almost bouncing giddily with joy at how helpful his dad had been. Real advice! With practice!

Then he froze when he realised he was going to be practicing on his sweet, shy classmate, who was likely going to get the entirely wrong idea, and who he had absolutely not the courage to come clean with; not on this.

'Darn’, he hissed into his room. Plagg ignored him and continued to eat his cheese noisily.

i know i said this before but like. klance high school au. i claim this. it’s mine.

BUILD CHEATS I USE 

  1. bb.moveobjects: Enables you to place items off the grid. I use this along with the ‘ALT’ key when placing objects
  2. bb.showhiddenobjects: Shows debug items 
  3. bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement: Unlocks career items
  4. ‘Shift + ]’ and ‘Shift + [’: Increase and decrease object sizes (I rarely use this cheat)

ROOM SHAPE:

  • I started off with a 4x4 room square room. Rooms look much nicer when they aren’t a complete square. To get rid of the square shape, I added the wardrobe from Get Together. 

BLANK WALLS  

  • I dislike having blank walls so I made sure to cover most of it with paintings and wall decor. I also like to ‘layer’ my wall decor by putting paintings and wall hangings on top of each other. At the end of the bed I added some plants to take up the remaining space. 

WALLS WITH WINDOWS 

  • I sometimes add wall decor to windows as well. I added post cards and a sign to the window to add decor to an area that would be blank. I don’t use curtains in most of my builds since I like the natural light that comes in. 
  • The wall to the left of the desk has a corkboard with post cards, a protest sign and a calendar I added. This helps the room feel more lived in. Behind the corkboard I added a poster which brings in color to that corner of the room. 
  • Although paint cans don’t belong in a bedroom, adding additional decor gives you more items to play with to make each room unique
  • Don’t be afraid to use the same items more than once. If you feel it’s too repetitive, use a different swatch.

FLOORS

  • You can choose to use a carpet but I decided to use the ‘messy’ clutter that came with the Parenthood GP. Next to the mirror I added some clutter to fill up the space. 
  • I don’t mind if certain items (like the mirror) aren’t functional because it’s likely another room will contain the same item that is functional. 

Decorating this took me around 10 minutes and my tips can be applied to larger rooms! Bedrooms don’t need to include typical bedroom items so play around with items you’ve never used before. 

pls click on it idk why it’s so blurry
