guess what i have a new favourite movie

Bachelorettes

“What on earth possessed you to come here? To think this was a good idea?” I laugh, awkwardly scratching my elbow as I follow my friend inside this dodgy strip club. We’re looking at possible to-do’s for another friend of ours her bachelorette party, but as far as I’m concerned we haven’t gotten anywhere at all. 

“Come on, it’s the all too known cliché. Sophia lives for sappy clichés. This would be the best thing about the whole day.” Sheila wiggles her eyebrows in my direction as she walks further into the club. 

“I personally believe you’re getting a knock out of me feeling uncomfortable.” I groan, following behind her as I try to avert my gaze from half naked ladies serving drinks. “As if you don’t enjoy the finesse of a toned male figure.” She scolds me. All I can do is shrug my shoulders as I slide into the bar stool beside her. “Of course, but if I’m willing to pay to see one is a whole different ordeal.”

I see her lips purse and I can’t help but grin. I didn’t mind going to a strip club but I know Sheila would be blowing this way out of proportion. “Y/n, do me a favour and give it a chance before you completely blow this off, alright?” She turns to me and grasps my outstretched hand, squeezing it as she grants me with her puppy dog eyes. 

“Well, because you asked so nicely.” I laugh, clapping my hands together before beckoning a waiter over. “Rum coke. Double. Thank you.” I immediately mumble as she approaches us, making sure to make eye contact instead of staring at her voluptuous bosom. 

I see him right away. Slight darker skin tone, carbon black messy hair and an arrogant yet vibrant smile uncovering his pearly white teeth. He’s wearing nothing else than a pair of boxers, and I can’t help but imagine him alongside Channing Tatum in Magic Mike. He would fit right in - and I would’ve watched the shit out of that movie. 

He notices us and grins slyly, slowly swaying his hips as he moves closer towards us.

“Ladies.” He nods his head as he approaches, Sheila’s eyes growing three times their normal size - which is usually quite big already, might I add - as she gives the mystery male a very thorough once over. 

“What gives us the honour of having such nice ladies as you over this fine evening?” The male speaks as his eyes twinkle underneath the dim lighting, leaning against the freshly polished stage in front of us. 

“Seeing what you have to offer around here.” Sheila speaks without a hiccup, making the blush rise on my cheeks. “Our friend is getting married and we’re planning the bachelorette.” She adds, smirking before she throws me a look, showing the male I am also involved in her shenanigans. 

“Well I guess I’ll have to show you what we have to offer then. Calum Hood, lead dancer, if I can put it like that.” He chuckles and I think it’s my new favourite sound. If this were a movie, my eyes would be twinkling underneath the dim lighting of this rather filthy strip club, and he would be smirking down at me. Well, the last part was true.

“It’s mainly for my friend – we’re just the entourage.” I mumble, averting my gaze to the table in front of me where my drink had appeared – something I hadn’t even noticed happening.

“Well,” Calum slides onto the table, his muscular torso right in front of my wandering eyes, “We do offer an arrangement for bridal parties. It’s a private room, a few dancers if I’m not mistaken. Isn’t that expensive either.”

“What do you think? Sounds like something Sophia would be happy with.” Sheila turns to me, seeming unfazed by what was in front of us.

“Are you sure she’ll be happy with that? I mean…” I trail off, frowning and staring off into the distance. I hear Calum scoff and I glance at him through the corner of my eyes.

“Then I guess I’ll have to convince you, don’t I?” Calum mumbles before he raises to his feet. He disappears to the side of the stage, while the lights dim. A new tune starts playing and I momentarily jump in my seat when a harsh white spotlight appears right before our eyes.

Calum appears on stage and while he walks to the centre, he sways his hips to the beat of the music. It’s mesmerizing to watch how he immediately takes over the stage, owns it and seems to have fun up there. He is in his comfort zone and that makes watching him all the more enlightening.

I’m mesmerized by his movements. It’s sensual, almost freeing and a real pleasure for the eye. Now that I give it a second thought, I think this would be even better if he was wearing more clothing so he could take it off. Just the thought of him doing said clothing removal during the bachelorette party gets my cheeks all tainted pink and a weird, unnerving feeling to erupt in my stomach.

It ends too soon, in my opinion, and he wipes his forehead with the back of his hand as he retreats to the back of the stage where he came from.

“That’s just a little bit of what you could expect.” Calum sighs as he stops right in front of us again, sweat dripping from the side of his face as he smiles brightly towards us. I bite my inner cheek as I try to suppress the grin that’s growing onto my features, before I speak.

“Well then, are you available in the third week of August?” I smirk, batting my eyelashes as Calum lets out a loud laugh. “Then I guess you’ll see us again.” Sheila smiles as her fingers curl around my arm, hoisting me up to my feet. “But for now, we have to leave. We still have a lot of things to figure out, right Y/n?” Sheila gives me a pointed look, smirk half hidden by the bad lighting. I feel the blush creep onto my cheeks as I glance from Calum to my mate. “Uh, yeah, yeah you’re right.”

We bid our goodbyes and I can’t help but glance back once more over my shoulder, seeing Calum still staring at our retreating figures. The sun light is harsh on my skin and I shield my eyes, trying to figure out where we were again.

“We definitely need to come back here.” I chuckle, cheeks tainted a bright red as I avoid Sheila’s gaze. “Of course you think that now. ” She nudges me in my ribs and motions for me to follow her to our right, to our next destination.

Okay, the fun part of this game is that I know I have a type.  Guess what it is?

Tarma and Kethry (The Vows & Honor series, Mercedes Lackey)

Once upon a time, apparently a popular trope of fantasy series that involved women warriors and sorceresses was usually “rape & revenge.”  I first “met” Tarma and her oathsister Kethry in the popular Sword and Sorceress Anthology edited by Marion Zimmer Bradley.  The amazing part of Tarma and Keth’s story isn’t really about how they avenged their respective abuse (which is already told in the first book and is done with) - it’s the fact that they are both strong, sensible, no-nonsense women who somehow end up in the kind of epic adventures that bards will warble about to no end and yet still remain so very human and fallible.  They’re allowed to be imperfect, they’re allowed to learn and grow and heal and love - and when I talk about love, it’s not just about finding some romantic partner to “magically heal” their psychological scars.  It’s the love that begins in friendship and ends up being forged as a true family. 

(Yep, Tarma is also one of the first effectively ace characters I’ve encountered too.)

Himura Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin) - One of the best examples of the trope “Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass” and I love him so.

Erik, the Phantom of the Opera (Phantom, Susan Kay)  - Also another one of my garbage can sons.  In Susan Kay’s brilliant piece of professionally published fan fiction, the Phantom is fully realized as both the broken child, the mysteriously alluring man, the monster and the genius that he is.

10 Questions

I was tagged by the wonderful @estalfaed - thanks, lovely!

  1. Dream Vacation location?  I’d love to visit Iceland, or a cruise around the Scandinavian fjords would be amazing.
  2. Who did you save - Kaidan or Ashley? Guess! I’ve never saved Ashley once so far, I can’t bring myself to do it…
  3. What is your favourite dessert? Cheesecake, preferably plain New York style with black cherries.
  4. What is a MUST-HAVE in a prospective partner? A sense of humour and a positive outlook.
  5. Which was your favourite Doctor Who companion (if you watched the show)? I’ve never watched it…
  6. A salt circle is good for keeping out what? Slugs. It also sounds like it should keep out faeries or goblins or something equally mystical, but it’d definitely work on slugs.
  7. Favourite Movie? JUST ONE?! Shaun of the Dead…or the original Ghostbusters…or Back to the Future…or Stranger Than Fiction…there are too many to choose from.
  8. If you could have any super power, what would it be? I’d love to just exude calm and peace and love so that people absorb it and stop being asshats to each other for five minutes. Failing that, I like Rogue’s ability to steal powers from other people because that way I get them all :)
  9. You have three paths before you, one leads to a misty forest, one leads to a ruined castle, and the last leads to a quiet lagoon. Which do you choose? The castle every time, preferably with a storm brewing so I can stand on the tumbledown battlements and look moody as my long hair whips around in the wind.
  10. If you could see your future, good, bad and in between. Would you want to? Nope, no chance, never. I know I’d get too hung up on anticipating the bad parts.

Now I have to come up with ten different questions and get tagging so…

  1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  2. Do you have any nicknames? If not, is there one you’d like to have?
  3. If you won the lottery tomorrow, what’s the first thing you’d buy?
  4. Are you a morning person or a night person?
  5. Do you consider yourself a good cook?
  6. What kinds of things really make you laugh?
  7. What is your favourite way to spend a day off?
  8. Do you have any pet peeves?
  9. Who is your best friend?
  10. What should I know about you that I’d never think to ask?

Tagging, without pressure or expectation: @humblydefiant, @shotce, @you-are-a-program, @giant-sequoia, @ellebeedarling, @arkesstuff, @aran-the-halberdier, @malmalsass (and @estalfaed because these are different questions)

Hello friends!! I was tagged by @chaoticpeachgarden , like, ages ago and I’ve been so busy. Anyway! 

Rules: Answer 11 questions, tag 11 people.


1. What is your favourite colour?                                                                             I really love pastels now, but black is really one of my favorites. 

2. Do you play any musical instruments?                                                           Kind of? I used to play guitar but I’m kind of out of practice. I do sing a lot though.  

3. What language would you want to be fluent in?                                                 All of them!!! If I wasn’t a computer science major I would do something with linguistics. But if I have to pick. Japanese. Because I want to live in Japan permanently and I think it’s the most beautiful language. 

4. Movies or TV series?                                                                                       Right now TV I guess, because I am REALLY looking forward to the new season of Rick and Morty.

5. What’s your favourite movie/ TV show?                                                             Of all time?! Oh man! I think favorite movie would be The Shining. Favorite TV show would be Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

6. If you had to choose a song as the soundtrack for your life, what would it be?  There are seriously so many! If I have to pick one, I would say literally anything from the FFVII sound track. But maybe One Winged Angel specifically because like, damn. I’m in love with Sephiroth and it’s a super bad ass song. 

7. What is your favourite/least favourite word?                                                       I don’t know if I have a favorite word. And I don’t hate the word, but I HATE when people call themselves otaku. If you call yourself an otaku willingly than you probably don’t know it’s actual connotation. 

8. What music/artists/bands would you recommend?                                             If you’re looking for some awesome rock, go for One Ok Rock and/or My First Story. If you want some super cute Jpop, Hey! Say! JUMP. And The Cure is always and forever an all time favorite band for me. 

9. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?                      Back to Japan.

10. What is/was your favourite subject at school?                                               I’m a math/science kid all the way. But I really enjoy anthropology the most I think. 

11. What’s your star sign?                                                                                        I’m a Leo



My Questions:

1) What’s your favorite type of weather? 

2) Do you consider yourself a funny person?

3) Do you enjoy driving/car rides?

4) What’s the dumbest school mascot you’ve ever heard of? 

5) What’s your favorite meme?

6) What TV show did you watch most as a child?

7) Do you like camping? 

8) If you could combine any two fruits, what would you combine and what would be it’s name?

Stay p.4 / Michael Clifford Imagine

masterlist / request 

part 1 / part 2 part 3 / part / part 6 / part 7

Why must I fuck up everything?

I want to chase after her, I want to wrap her up in my arms and tell her to stay and that it will all be okay but I can’t seem to get myself to do it. My legs are refusing to move and I’m sure if I ran they would give way underneath me. So I just stood there. I stood in the doorway all by my lonesome and I watched her leave. I watched her drive off. What if she doesn’t come back? What if this is actually the end? I got a second chance and I ruined it, why should I get a third chance? I wouldn’t give myself a third chance if I were her.
