he said he loves australia in it

We were in London last October and visited the Houses of Parliament. An officer by the name of Keith Palmer was happy to pose with us for a photo once he learned that we had travelled all the way from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, Australia.
It sent a shiver down my spine when I realised Keith was the officer who was killed in the London terror attack which took place last night.
I spoke with Keith for quite a while and found him to be a genuinely nice bloke. He said he would love to visit Australia with his family one day. The girls suggested if he did make it to Australia, he should visit Alice Springs and we would show him how special a place it is.
That will never happen now, all because he was doing his job and trying to keep people safe in the face of yet another crazy terror attack. Our thoughts are with his wife and family.
With everyone so suspicious of everyone else these days, he was happy to chat and smile for a photo with a bunch of Territorians on holiday whilst still remaining vigilant and carrying out his duties as a police officer.

turning this into a series.

Calum looked up at his wife of 11 years.

She looked tired and he was sure that she was.

They’d married young. Some people said too young. But it worked for them.

She worked on the tours for the first three years and in the next two years they lived in different countries together and explored and loved each other endlessly.

I'm thinking Rin might've met little girl in overalls at the beach. Cause besides school and swim practice, that's where he spent most of his time. So maybe... little was there building a sandcastle. Maybe Rin helped her get buckets of water and seashells cause you know our shark boy is the romantic chivalrous type. Maybe this was before he learnt English so maybe he didn't understand anything she said and only identifies her with her overalls. Maybe I'm crying now. T_T so cute.

AHHH YES. SO CUTE! I LOVE THIS ONE! *hugs you and cries with you* 

Like, imagine Rin trying to look for her after he returns to Australia (post-ES)

“Dad once said to me, that should he pass away, if there was some way of letting me know he was going to be ok – that we were all going to be ok – the message would come to me in the form of a White Feather. Then something happened to me, whilst on tour with the album, Photograph Smile, in Australia. I was presented with a White Feather by an Aboriginal tribal elder, from The Mirning people, which definitely took my breath away. “ - Julian Lennon 

During the recording of ‘Free As A Bird’, a white peacock appeared as Paul, George and Ringo were having their picture taken

“I said to the other guys, ‘That’s John!’ Spooky, eh? It was like John was hanging around. We felt that all the way through the recording.”  - Paul McCartney

While absent physically, John’s spirit is still with us, so while this is a day of sadness it is also a day of commemorating a wonderful person’s life who continues to influence a generation. We love you John <3

Two Hearts Drawn Together by Chelsea Frew (chelseafrew)

Louis Tomlinson is 1/3 of a world-famous boy band. Harry Styles is a deaf university student. When they meet each other at a book signing, they experience an instant connection. They soon discover, however, that bridging the divide of their differences is easier said than done.

  Two Hearts Drawn Together by Chelsea Frew (chelseafrew)

Louis Tomlinson is 1/3 of a world-famous boy band. Harry Styles is a deaf university student. When they meet each other at a book signing, they experience an instant connection. They soon discover, however, that bridging the divide of their differences is easier said than done.

Right By Your Side by mezziedemo

Marine Biologist Harry Styles works at SeaWorld Australia and conducts dolphin therapy sessions for people suffering trauma or fear of water. He loves his job and his life in Australia, but it all gets turned upside down when a beautiful blue eyed boy from the UK is sent down under for therapy after a near drowning incident.
Louis Tomlinson dived into the river to save his sister without a second thought to his own safety. When he almost drowned trying to save her, the after effects are severe. After a particularly bad panic attack, he is referred to a program in Australia, where he finds himself in the care of the prettiest boy he’s ever seen.
Can they maintain the professional boundaries required to get Louis well again, or will their desire for each other be too hard to fight?

a couple months too long by Louistimes2

“I mean who wouldn’t be scared when a cute little twink comes to tell a famous rockstar that the great sex in a doorway they had ended with a baby.” And yeah, now Louis is staring at him with wide eyes.

Louis is a fan of Harry’s and they fuck and end up with a child.

Amazing Sin by thecheshirepussycat

Or, the story of Louis ‘Steal Your Man’ Tomlinson.

brought it back by gravitycentered for zouis

Louis wakes up without his cock and finds it bloody impossible to have an orgasm in such an unfamiliar body. Harry is very curious about what it’d feel like. They work something out.

searching for a sweet surrender (but this is not the end) by donnyslouis for ziamsie

Or an AU based off the Voice where Louis’s Adam, Harry’s Blake, Niall’s Shakira, Zayn and Liam have a cliche Romeo/Juliet love story and Louis’s too old for pathetic pining.

ask me no questions (and I’ll tell you no lies) by colourexplosion

or, an au where people actually use yahoo answers for stuff.

a vivid dream, a lucid scene by likebritishshowers

Everybody has a talent. Zayn, he drew. Liam, he sang. Niall, he could drink for Ireland, and did frequently. Harry, he always knew exactly when, where and how people were going to die.

It’s no big thing, just like how his mum knows exactly how long it takes to bake her cakes and make them taste like heaven on a plate. His perception of the world wasn’t much different from the average person’s except for the beacons that hung over everybody’s head like an illuminated sign, only to be extinguished after the first glance. This meant Harry had no choice but to know that the little girl who said hello to him every morning was to die in a car crash two months from now, and that his university professor would commit suicide by gunshot in his late fifties following a divorce from his cheating wife.

He’s powerless to stop the hands of fate, and he knows that better than anything else, but when one boy in particular makes his way into Harry’s life obliterating everything in his way, Harry is determined to cheat death with him for just as long as he can.

Ace by aclosetlarryshipper

The sexuality crisis you probably haven’t read.

roll like thunder, burn like stars by hilourry

In a world where the hierarchy of society is omegas and they get to pick their alphas. Omega Louis really wants Professor Harry Styles as his alpha.

we’ll play hide and seek to turn this around (give me love like never before) byWankerville (Strawberry Milk serie)

or an au where harry paints his nails and drinks strawberry milk and is too nervous for it to be nothing and louis’ just trying to figure out whats wrong with him

Falling into your gravity by larriebane

The Doncaster tribe has suffered from the increasing attacks of the rogue werewolves for months now and finally their pleas have been answered. The Government has sent them enforcements in the form of a family of high standing, the Styles, whose babelicious son turns a certain omega’s world upside down. Poor Louis is just trying to get people believe he’s a beta as his family’s life depends on it.

Wild And Unruly by 100percentsassy, gloria_andrews

Harry is a cowboy sitting on the biggest oil reservoir in Wyoming, and Louis is the paralegal assigned to pressure him into selling his land.

The Edge of My Seat by MiniMangaFan

Or, Louis drags Naughty Boy on Twitter and fucks Harry at the same time.

Space Oddity by Velvetoscar for Star55

Louis’ blessed with the inconvenience of getting his neighbor’s mail. It works out really well for the both of them.

wanna taste your heart, don’t interfere by MarchieTheHare

(harry presents as an omega, louis is his alpha best friend, and there are hidden feelings that just get harder to control.)

Escapade by Anonymous for howlouvely

In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved. But when the wedding is for his lifelong best friend (and former boyfriend), and is happening in under a month, finding a date for the ceremony and accompanying festivities becomes more of an adventure than he ever could have planned for.

And down the long and silent street by whimsicule

Or: Wherein Louis and Harry are on the opposite ends of the social ladder, but their paths still cross on the filthy streets Louis calls his home. The odds are staked against them from the beginning, and even more when Louis’ past finally catches up with him.

Butterfly Gun by eravain

Harry has never been much of a fighter, but—as always—where Louis Tomlinson is concerned, a lot of things stop being true.

1940’s AU. Even after six years apart, they can’t forget their shared wartime childhood.

May We Stay Lost On Our Way Home by LoadedGunn

Harry thought he had a handle on things. He hasn’t gotten papped in over a month, even the most zealous of fans have given up on finding his location, the Fortress is starting to look hospitable, and Niall just learned how to make shrimp bisque. Even having a massive crush on a gorgeous mythical woodland creature was working out for him.

Most of the time.

On March 31st, Harry Styles disappears. Though many speculate, only two people know where to find him: Niall, his former guitarist, and Zayn, who follows where Niall leads.

The fact the biggest boy band in the world broke up two weeks earlier might be related to the disappearance. The fact Harry meets a fairy named Louis in the woods is a whole other matter.

December 3 🎄 He comes home for Christmas - Military!Calum

“I know babe,” your boyfriend said to you quietly. “I won’t be able to come home for another three months.” You were on the phone with Calum, he was telling you the bad news -you won’t be home for Christmas. This was all part of a huge plan that he and the boys had planned. You sighed, tears in your eyes. “I miss you, and I can’t wait to see you again.” The sadness in your voice made him really guilty that he was lying to you about not coming home, but he could only imagine the bright smile on his face when he holds you in his arms for the first time in forever. The muffled “Flight 442 to Australia” was heard overhead in the airport, but you didn’t hear. “I have to go y/n, I love you, and Merry Christmas,” Calum said into the phone, lifting the handle on his suitcase. You returned the ‘I love you’ once more and wished him a Merry Christmas. “I’ll call you tomorrow morning,” he said, ending the call. Putting his iPhone in his pocket, Cal began to walk in the direction of the flow of people who were boarding the plane. He handed the woman my ticket. “Have a nice flight,” she smiled, obvious that she hated her job. He thanked her and boarded the plane. Calum spent most of the plane ride sleeping, hoping you meant your words, and really did love him. Being in the Military, he definitely had a struggle with keeping relationships. Usually, he would come home to find his girlfriend with another boy. Other times, his girlfriend would sort of forget about you. He’d arrive at the airport with no one to welcome him, alone he drove home. With you, Cal knew that this was different. You loved him with your whole heart, at least he hoped he still did. December 25, Christmas Day, the plane landed. Calum grabbed his carry on, and exited the plane. He got his bags from that weird baggage claim thing, and headed to the parking lot with Mikey and Luke to get into the car. Cal was ecstatic to see you. His bags were loaded into the car and you drove off to your shared house where Christmas was going to be spent. “{y/n} and us went to church,” Ashton said in a text to Calum. “Be home in 15.” Calum hurried to change his clothes, and freshen up. In the kitchen, he made a glass of water, taking a cookie from the plate on the counter. The front door burst open, {y/n} and Luke laughing. Calum stayed hidden in the kitchen, mostly so {y/n} didn’t see you. You sat down on the couch across the kitchen, turning on the tv. “I thought you were going to call me,” he called out to you from the kitchen. You looked up surprised, then looked at him as if you were to say ‘Is it really you?’ “Calum!” “Merry Christmas baby,” he whispered with a smirk. You smiled widely, Calum looking like he was over the moon with happiness. He pulled you into a tight hug, resting his chin on your head.
There was a moment where you thought he was going to cry he was so happy. “Welcome home, Darling,” you said, looking you in the eyes. “I love you so much.”

Dating an American girl ( requested )

requested: yes

daddy-sos said:  Can you do a 4/4 blurb of the boys dating an American girl

( send me requests or prompts for blurbs for any boy!! I’ll gladly do all of them )

so Ashton would love driving through those long ass highways in America and lots of them became unexpected road trips. You guys would also have constant fights on what things should be called. He would tease your accent as well and you would stand out loads when he took you down under to Australia for Christmas. His family would be so fascinated on your accents and Harry would even get you to say some words so he can giggle over it. 

dating an American girl would mean that Michael would never ever have to worry about what donut flavor he should get because you would know which ones were the shit. Same applies for pizza and you would know the numbers for each pizza parlor to call. 

Calum would love to go and have these nice little trips around famous sightseeing areas with his family and you as a tour guide. You would explain all the history behind all the different places as well as take them to places you thought was worthy of the Hood family’s tasting. 

Luke would want you to take him to nice clubs and places with great beer. He’d also take this opportunity to get everything he ordered online to be shipped to your house because  being the diva he is, the amount of clothes he ordered online were ridiculous and all of them came from America and it took him quite some begging for you to let him get it shipped to your house

consulting-cannibal replied to your post “I am so beat Will post properly tomorrow Scout I will message you…”

SCREAMS

Oh Scout

Scout

Dear

Rich and Matt want copies, they want Rob to see it, and they want you to sell and make money off them as much as you can because they love it (Matt: Does this give you an ego boost?? [joke from their panel heh])

Like I was the last one to meet Rich cause I was doing other bits and went to Osric first so yeah he was flicking through and he thought it was really good and wasn’t sure if to sign the front or the back but I said I intended to get it signed so I don’t mind the front wherever he’d like to sign it

So they want to get Rob to come here next year so he can have fun in Australia with them and like I can get him to sign God ‘n’ Gabe and he can see it and yeah Scout your comic has approval from The Trickster himself


(ALSO I WAS INCREDIBLY AWKWARD THE WHOLE TIME LIKE HOLY SHIT SOMEONE PLEASE SHOOT ME I AM SO BAD AT THESE THINGS WOW)

uMmMM OKAY TRONNOR IS SO REAL.
1. In the first picture (first sighting of Tronnor this week) Connor deleted the caption and changed it but it used to say that the picture was soo old (that’s why Troye responded with baby emojis) BUT ITS OBVIOUSLY NOT HUN YOU PROBABLY JUST TOOK DAT PHOTO.
2. In the second picture 22 hours ago which was 9:27am in Perth at the time SO HE PROBABLY SPENT THE NIGHT BC LOOK AT NUMBER THREE OMG 3. In the third picture 2 hours after that tweet, Troye posted this snap WHICH GIVES HIM THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF TIME TO EAT BREAKFAST AND GET READY AT TROYES HOUSE OTHER THAN AT A HOTEL AND HAVE TO DRIVE TO TROYE’S HOUSE.
4. The fourth picture clearly shows that after a lovely day together, they both enjoy a nice Australian sunset.
AND THAT WAS MY PROOF THAT TRONNOR IS REAL AND CONNOR VISITED TROYE ON HIS BIRTHDAY.

If people can trust that I’ll make the right decision and hopefully, whatever that is, I’ll make them proud. I’ve got to stage when I done ten years in the forces. There’s part of me that - especially post Australia - that would love to keep on doing that.
—  Prince Harry admitted he feels under a lot of pressure to make the right decision, but he does not want to be saddled forever with the tag of ‘party prince’. In fact, he said, he “never wanted that”.
I am pissed to say at least !!

In Australia our Prime Minster has just started this ….

“What happens in the United States is obviously a matter for the United States, just as what happened in Ireland a few weeks ago is a matter for the Irish,” he said.

“Obviously there is a community debate going on, I have views on this subject which are pretty well known and they haven’t changed.”


He is not going to allow a vote cause HIS views on same sex marriage hasn’t changed. Not Australia’s HIS !!!!!

Our country is siting about 70% are for same sex marriage !!!

He is denying 70% of the population who voted him in their right to marry the person they love cause he thinks it wrong !!!!!


I am so angry right now cause this dickhead is running my country !!!!

Help Me Through It (Jack Gilinsky)

Can you do an imagine where Y/N and Jack Gilinsky are watching movie in Y/N’s family room while her mom is at work and then they hear a loud knock at the door but when she opens it their are people standing in military suits with a letter stating that her father has passed away in the war and she starts freaking out and Jack comforts her sweetly?

“So what movie do you want to watch?” I ask Jack, scrolling through Netflix.

He mumbles something that I can’t quite hear so I just pick a random movie that looks good called Stuck in Love.

I sit down beside Jack on the couch and watch as the opening credits begin, Mom’s at work so it’s just us. My dad has been stationed in Australia for the last three months, I miss him terribly but I know he’ll be home soon enough.

I hum along to the song playing on the movie and hold Jack’s hand. “I said World War Z” Jack jokes, smiling at me.

“I didn’t hear what you said, so I made a final decision for the both of us” I say to him.

About half way through the movie I’m hungry and am craving popcorn, but I’m too lazy to get up.

“Babe, will you please make some popcorn?” I ask Jack, in a whine.

He scrunches his nose at me but still gets up and makes the popcorn.

“Thank you, love you” I shout to him in the kitchen.

“Yeah yeah” he calls back.

Jack finally comes back with the popcorn but before he makes it to me the doorbell rings. I get up and meet him at the door, kissing his nose and grabbing the bowl holding the popcorn.

Jack smiles at me and stands behind me while I open the door.

I open the door slowly displaying two men in a MIlitary Uniforms. My heartbeat stops for a moment when I see them and the blood drains from my face.

I’ve seen enough movies to know what this means. My body freezes and my hands lose grip on the bowl in my hand, breaking it on the floor.

I tear my eyes away from the men and lose consciousness, falling back into Jack.

“Y/N…” Jack says, waking me up from my sleep.

I moan and open my eyes slowly, retracing the last moments before I passed out.

“Jack, please tell me that was a bad dream” I say through a sore voice.

“Baby, sit up” Jack says looking at me with sad eyes.

I close my eyes and cover my face with my hands feeling the tears rise in my eyes and my throat close up.

“No” I cry.

“I’m here baby, I’m right here” Jack says, holding me.

I lean into him and continue to cry.

“Shh” Jack says, rubbing my hair.

“We’ll get through it baby, I’m right here” Jack whispers to me.

Sometime after my crying puts me back to sleep, I sleep for the rest of the night and finally wake up when Jack and my mother wake me up.

Jack’s face is red from crying and my mother looks like she’s seen a ghost. I’m guessing Jack had to tell her the bad news.

“Mom?” I say out loud.

“I’m here honey, it’s alright” My mother says, holding my hand.

“Mom..he’s gone” I cry, letting the sobs escape my lips.

Jack rushes by my side and starts touching my hair and whispering to me.

“We’ll get through this” Jack says to me and my mother.

I look up at Jack through my tears and smile at him weakly.

“Thank you” I manage to say through the tears.

To all the people thinking this...

You guys do realise they literally said UK first. Implying other counties after. They’ve said they would love to go to Australia, and most other countries, and if the UK tour goes well (which it will), they probably WILL end up going to Australia, and everywhere else.

It is literally exactly the same as what tyleroakley did. He toured his country first, saw that it went insanely well, so now he’s taking it international.

You cant just expect them to go “were going on tour to 36 different countries all at once!” Its totally illogical. They have no idea how the tour is going to go down (and given all this negativity surrounding it, can you blame them!?) so it literally just makes sense in so many ways to tour their own country first, see how that goes, and take it from there

Remember, “UK first”.

(and to anyone thinking im in the UK and “just dont get it” im literally FROM Australia)

Happy Birthday to my baby brother! ~

these are old photos but ANYWAY (read below)

Today is my baby brother’s 9th birthday! (17th December)

He is a MASSIVE fan of both @therealjacksepticeye and @markiplier like I am, we always talk about them, quote them to each other and watch them together. I asked him last week what his dreams were, he may be too young for that question at the moment but I asked him and he said: 1) to get a birthday reply from either Jack or Mark. and 2) to meet both of them.

I will make my brother’s dreams come true no matter how long it takes, I love hearing him giggle to Jack and Mark, they’re all he watches when he goes to bed or if he is sick. I may be a massive fan myself and my dream is also to meet them & I wouldn’t share it with anyone else. One day little buddy, I will make it happen. I know it’s hard because we’re in Australia, but one day!
