Hi so I just saw your Zion one (it was soooo good & cute btw), and I was just wondering if you could do what it’d be like to date Nick if you can? He’s my boy and I need more of him in my life to be completely honest 🤷🏼♀️
Thaaaaanks a bunch love! I just watched their live performance of Redbone on MTV and Nick looked like such a snack so I’ve got hella feels
DATING NICK WOULD INCLUDE:
So. many. dance. lessons.
“Babe—” he’d gasp between snickers. “That’s not—that’s not it.”
“If you make fun of my dancing you can cuddle on the couch alone tonight.”
Him being a smirky confident boyfriend in front of you and the boys but blushing real hard when someone else mentions you
Avoiding interview questions about you by strictly answering with “no, she’s great, yeah..she’s an amazing person.”
The fandom making fun of him and using his flustered self as a meme
He’s not always touching you in some way but sometimes he’ll spontaneously grab you by the waist and kiss you passionately or lightly smack your ass when you walk by
“Mara!” you’d yelp.
“Do you want me to stop?”
“……No.” you’d huff.
Him whining whenever you playfully mess his perfect quiff up
But of course when you’re doing it subconsciously mid make out session, he doesn’t really mind
Sometimes he doesn’t even brush through it, leaving it a fluffy mess on his head
The boys noticing it and teasing him for it
Wearing his gold chains even though you tell him not to put it on you
“It looks way better on you than it does on me, anyways.” he’d smirk, kissing your neck after he clasps the chain around it.
Him harmonizing with you whenever you’re absent-mindedly singing a tune
“You sound amazing, babe.” he’d mutter as he gives you a quick kiss on the cheek
A lot of cuddles with him and his lil puppy, all snuggled up on the couch during a netflix marathon
“I love my family.” he’d goofily sigh, tightening his arm around you and petting his pup with his free hand
Of course you’d be a part of the girlfriend groupchat
Where Zion’s gf likes to post pics of Zion sleeping, you post the most obscure and rare baby pictures of Nick back when he was in Iconic Boyz
You teasing him about whenever you get the chance
“Babe, look at this sick dance routine!” he’d shove his phone into your face
“Would you say it’s…iconic?”
“That’s the last time I’m sharing shit with you.”
Being the only one who can calm him down when he’s raging
“Call me when you stop seeing red.” you’d roll your eyes, getting up to walk out off the room
“(Y/N), baby, wait. I’m calm, I promise. Don’t leave.”
You’re not the type to ‘steal’ your boyfriend’s clothes and he finds it adorable that you respect his personal space and belongings too much
“I just—” you sigh. “I have nothing against people who do wear their partners’ clothing, I just think that it should be because your partner wanted you to, and not because you just took it, you know?” you’d ramble
“No, yeah, I totally get it. I agree.” Nick would nod (while secretly devising plans to get you to wear his clothes) (and also Nick is just too shy to tell you that he wants to see you in his clothes)
“Babe it’s sunny, take my hat!” “That LA sunshine’s always buggin’, did you bring glasses? Do you want mine?” “It’s getting a bit chilly. I have a spare sweater if you’d like,”
Until one day you just get used to wearing his stuff that you do so out of habit
“Is that my cap?” he’d grin at you as he hugs you from behind
“Oh shit, yeah. I totally forgot. Here—” you’d reach up to pull it off but Nick’s hand stops yours in its tracks
“Nah, keep it on.” he sways you back and forth gently in his arms. “Looks good on ya’.”
Probably a lot of playful lap dances, just for fun, especially when the boys get a little wasted
Nick actually doing a good job and you having to sit there and bite back moans as you pretend as if it wasn’t affecting you
“I think she likes it!” Austin would notice your warming cheeks first, causing you to blush a deeper shade of red
“Oh my god.” you’d burry your face into your hands
“Don’t worry. We can finish off later.” Nick would wink at you over his shoulder, getting off your lap (the surge of confidence coming both from alcohol and the blatant want in your eyes)
ALL RIGHT WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE HEARTBREAKING "SOMETHINGS MISSING"
ALRIGHT YALL. I DONT KNOW ABOUT YALL, BUT MY FAVORITE FUCKING SONG IN COME FROM AWAY BESIDES STOP THE WORLD IS “SOMETHINGS MISSING”. NOW A FUCK TON OF YOU ARE GOING LIKE “HAYLEY WHAT THE FUCKITY FUCK??????” AND LET ME EXPLAIN WHY. IT IS THE MOST PERFECT SONG TO DESCRIBE EVERYONE. LETS LOOK AT THE LYRICS.
Out the airplane window, I can see Manhattan
And there’s still smoke
And suddenly I’m afraid all over again
And there are others afraid too.”
THIS IS ALMOST THE EXACT SAME STRUCTURE FOR THE ENTIRE SONG. SOMETHINGS _____________. THEN AN EXPLANATION. THEY LOST THEIR SENSE OF SECURITY IN THE ATTACKS. NEXT EXAMPLE.
My flat is the same as I left it
I start to unpack
And I find the camera.”
LIKE I SAID. SAME FUCKING STRUCTURE BUT DIFFERENT WORD.
NOW THE MUSIC. AT FIRST IT STARTS OFF ALL RAINDROPPY (it’s now a word) AND THEN IT GOES INTO WHAT I LIKE TO CALL REALIZATION MODE. MINOR KEY. SLOWER AND THE MUSIC KINDA FADES INTO THE BACK GROUND AS THEY REALIZE WHAT HAPPENED AND TRY TO DEAL^tm. IT THEN COMES BACK FULL FORCE AS PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO BREAK DOWN.
THE STAGING IN THIS IS FUCKING PERFECT. ITS BASICALLY EVERYONE MOVES ON THE SOMETHINGS ___________ AND THEN FREEZE. BUT THE BEST PART IS THAT THE TURNTABLE IS GOING FROM THE FIRST SOMETHINGS ______ TO “YOU HAVE REACHED GANDER ACADEMY” AND HOLY FUCK OKAY ITS HELLA HEARTBREAKING. AND IF YOU SEE IT LIVE/ SEE THE BOOTLEG EVERYONES FACE IS SO HEARTBROKEN AND HURT AND WORRIED. THEN WHEN YOU REACH “YOU ARE HERE AT THE END OF A MOMENT” ITS LIGHTS ON JUST BEULAH AND HANNAH AND EVERYONE IS STILL, BUT THEY START MOVING ON THE NEXT SOMETHINGS BLANK. LISTEN CLOSE BECAUSE YOU GET A HELLA COOL THING BECAUSE NICK SAYS “ACROSS THE ATLANTIC” AND ITS SO HEARTBREAKING AND HES JUST ASTONISHED?? AND EVERYONE IS JUST REALLY FUCKING HEARTBROKEN. AND THEN THE HARMONIES REALLY HIT IT TF HOME. IM CRYING NOW BUT IT NEEDED TO BE SAID.
