hey i took the photo for this is the future

One day at a time (chapter 1) Lin-Manuel x Reader

I had a 9 hour plane journey with nothing to do so I wrote a stupidly long fluffy fic as part of a new series.  

Summary: This is based on Lin’s adorable tweet about him messing around on tinder. Old Man Miranda explores Tinder while logged into his friend’s account and has an awkward conversation with Reader. Awkwardness and some fluff ensues. It’’s about time I wrote something that wasn’t totally angsty for a change.

Warnings: Nothing but fluff, but I definitely swear more than I think I do.

Photo taken yesterday.

   My attitude towards “Hey, can you take a picture of so and so while I so and so…” is usually “Yeah, I can do that…”. My job is fun, and for the most part you learn something every time you’re out.

   When an Olympic athlete asks you to take some photos for a new line of work, that “Yeah” turns more into “Whaaaaa????!! Definitely.” So today, I did just that. At the beach. The shots will be more refined in the future, but just to kind of warm up and try to figure out the end goal we took some shots down at the beach. Here are a few for now…

Olympic Athlete Chantae McMillan in St. Augustine, Florida. (By the way, she does the heptathlon, in the track and field division. 1 or 2 events clearly isn’t enough. 7 is required.)

“But the man’s black hair seemed to call to him from behind the camera, whispering through a sea of stars, his eyes driftwood on a beach, filling him with warmth, his smirk enough the set the world alight. And he laughed. And he couldn’t stop. ”

I bet you weren’t expecting that. Hey loyal followers and those who forgot to unfollow me alike! It’s Dakota with 2 more PKCNs. I promise I took the usual photos of these, but my tablet must have deleted them. Or I can’t find them.

That handsome young roughigan is my Chinese little brother, Name Omitted. I’m in China for a study abroad program after leaving Orlando and pursuing my minor and future “career” of teaching English. I’m definitely not in it for the money, I’m in it for the lulz.

China’s great though. I’m staying in Tianjin at Tianjin Ligong Daxue, so if you’re here, look me up. I’ll say 你好 and make you a free PKCN.

I made one of the girls on our program a Pikachu that turned out pretty cool too, but I didn’t feel the need to post it.

Other updates on Dakota: Still Single (wink), Senior in College, Knows some Chinese, some guitar, and current Rubik’s cube record is 22 seconds.

If you want to chat, I’m on wechat as dakotathephillips. I’m no longer on facebook. I didn’t unfriend any of you, I just suspended my account. I still love you in the way that I choose to use that word.

So thanks for following, reblogging, and reading. I’m thinking about starting the old business back up. IDK…If this post gets over 100 notes I’ll post the Samus Aran I made a few months ago. If not, no harm done, I’ll just go work at a convenience store.

Much love, Dakota
