Azurrin week 2016 Day 7: Story

Bonus:

(she does it on purpose…)

“If I am the phantom, it is because man’s hatred has made me so. If I am to be saved it is because your love redeems me.” 

Not sure if The Phantom of the Opera really qualifies for “spooky” Halloween theme, but I think it does.  I mean, the guy is literally scarred and drops a chandelier on folks so…yeah…either way, here’s Phantom!Ben for ya’ll, haha!

As You Like It: Half Calf*, Full Audio

Hark, hear the audio of the 1967 National Theatre production of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It”, in which Jeremy starred as Orlando! This is with an all-male cast and I’ve posted a few pics and articles about it before.

Here is an obligatory visual aid to help with listening: Jeremy Brett in capris as Orlando and Ronald Pickup as Rosalind (who, btw, played Barrymore in Granada’s The Hound of the Baskervilles 20 years later).

*For another visual aid, see one thousand Jeremys.

Mmm, here. You need another:

Love you all! ;)

Thought I’d do my usual personal text post. I know some people don’t particularly care and just skim over these, but this is more of a diary entry and for people who actually are interested, which will only be a few of you. 

I have a 2 day weekend now - thankfully! I have to travel back down to London on Monday morning, which should be fun *eye roll* And I go on shift with a mentor to begin doing the job, and I’m getting more nervous. One of my colleagues said, and she’s right: we feel as if we were only preparing to pass the test and not retain the information to do the job. It seemed all about the test, rather than the job itself. 

But today I brought myself a new, smaller suitcase for work. My much larger one is for holidays. I also got myself Beauty and the Beast on DVD (it was a double pack of the cartoon version and live action version). I got to see my sister and niece as well, and get my hair cut. My under shaven parts grow so quickly and I’m constantly at the hairdresser’s. 

I brought myself some eyedrops as well as my eyes have started getting more itchy, especially when I’m tried, so I’m going to try and keep the moisture in them with drops. I think they’re getting dry and the air conditioning in the hotel I’m staying in is ridiculous and on constantly. 

I hope to get some more writing done this afternoon; possibly work on a couple of imagines or one shots; see how I feel. I do still have all my unworked requests. I never got rid of any of them, and one day I will finish them - I PROMISE! 

On the writer note, I do want to ask who still wishes to be tagged in upcoming chapters of Together or any imagines/one shots. I always post The Hobbit stuff, and rarely deviate from that nowadays. (This is obviously if you’ve made it this far through my post and haven’t just ignored or skimmed it)

 …..And finally - 62 DAYS TO NEW ZEALAND!!!!!!!! :) :) 

Polyjuice Potion - Yoongi

A/N: GUYS I LOVE THIS SO MUCH I JUST CAN”T // also first of my harry potter!au series


The chill of the dungeons nipped at your heels as you and your housemates clambered down the hall for your weekly potions lesson. To say that potions was your least favorite class was an understatement, you detested it. Not because you were terrible at it, that was far from the truth. In fact, you were heralded around Hogwarts as perhaps the best brewer to set foot in the castle since Severus Snape himself. Your particular dislike for the subject that occupied your Friday afternoons stemmed from none other than a certain Min Yoongi with whom you’d unfortunately been paired with for the year.

How do you navigate family holidays as a polyamorous person?

This is a more technical question, but are there any good ways to make ‘family holidays’ work with poly? Thanksgiving is coming up and 1 turkey dinner is daunting enough, I don’t know if I can manage 3. I don’t really know how to coordinate who goes where on what day to maximize the number of people made happy (and having everyone over at my place is not an option). Plus there’s non-understanding parents to consider…. help?

Ah, the eternal awkwardness of navigating the holiday season as a polyamorous person. Part of the trick is just being willing to let someone down; being a bit of a sponge willing to soak up some negativity and some conflict. You can’t make everyone happy, so let go of trying. It’s fair to want to “maximize” the number of people made happy, but really, your main job is to make sure your own needs get met, and to have the backs of the people you’re in relationships with. Seven annoyed or offended aunts and grandmas isn’t really “equal” to one burnt-out or insulted partner. 

Some families find that trade-offs work - “Jorston and I are going to Glavel’s family Thanksgiving, but we’ll be with you all for Christmas.” Or, “I’ll be doing Thanksgiving with Jorston’s family this year, and will plan to visit you for Thanksgiving next year.” Some people may pitch a bit of a fit about you skipping Thanksgiving, but that’s their problem. If you’re not up to 3 Thanksgivings, don’t go to 3 Thanksgivings.

Figure out what’s going to work for you, and then make that work. Don’t get caught up in making everything work for everyone. That might mean telling your partners “I’m sorry, but I’m just not up to going with you to your family’s Thanksgiving this year. I’ll be with my family for Thanksgiving all day. Of course you’re invited, but I totally understand if you want to spend it with your family.” There is no Relationship Law that you have to be together on Thanksgiving. Their family might whine about it and pester them about “where’s Blatilda? Why isn’t Blatilda here this year?” - but that’s, again, a mild unpleasantness that can’t be avoided.

Some polyamorous networks find that it’s easier to shake out into smaller, often more mono-passing, arrangements for the sake of the holidays. In my situation, for instance, even though I don’t practice hierarchical polyamory and none of my partners are my “primaries,” my partner “Casper” has a family that lives in the same city as my family, and I’m pretty close to his family. So I travel to my home state and do part of Thanksgiving with the Caspers, and part of Thanksgiving with my family. I can’t go to the house of my other long-term partner, “David S. Pumpkins," for Thanksgiving because the Pumpkins family lives in a different state. Even splitting the day between my family and the Caspers causes some friction. But that’s what I want to do, so I do it.

It may be that one year David S. Pumpkins lets me know that it would be really important to him that I join him for the Pumpkins Thanksgiving. In that case, maybe I’d choose not to go to my home state one year, and stay and do Thanksgiving with his family. That would mean some disappointed people in my family and Casper’s family. But sometimes we disappoint people! Or, I could tell David S. Pumpkins "I’m sorry, but going home for Thanksgiving is a tradition that is really important to me, and I just can’t do what you’re asking. Let’s figure out some alternatives.”

Either way, someone has a Thanksgiving without me, and the world goes on despite the fact that I had to tell someone “no” in a bummer of a conversation. Anyone - family member or partner - who chooses to try guilt-tripping, tantrum-throwing, or other tactics to get me to spend a holiday with them immediately drops off my list, rather than making me more likely to find time for them. It can be tempting to think that you really ought to go to someone’s house because they’re the “most hurt” about it, but don’t reward that kind of behavior. Decide where you want to go and then let people know what your plans are. It’s not a negotiation. 

When it comes to non-understanding family members, there are two possible problems. One is that you tell your mother that you’ll be with Glavel’s family for Thanksgiving, and she gets deeply wounded because !he’s not even your real boyfriend" or somesuch nonsense. All she’s done is make it easier on you to choose to spend a day in someone else’s company. You have my permission to flounce off elsewhere without any more fuss. You don’t need anyone’s permission or understanding to do what you want for a holiday.

But if you want to bring multiple partners to a family gathering and worry that your family members will be bigoted or rude, that’s something to take a bit more seriously. Talk with your partners beforehand about their concerns, how you’ll present a united front, which family members are more likely to be nasty, who you have in your corner, and what the plan is for responding to inappropriate comments. If you feel like a certain family gathering just won’t be emotionally safe for someone, don’t go, or at the very least don’t make that person go. 

So maybe it works out for you and Jorston to go to your family’s place for Thanksgiving and Glavel goes to his family’s place. His family might be like “why didn’t you bring your partner?” and Jorston’s family might be like “but why can’t you join us?” - but they will survive. They might sulk a bit, but they are adults and they will survive the crushing disappointment of an adult having other life obligations on Thanksgiving. Or, maybe all three of you go to your house for the dinner, and then all three of you pop over to Glavel’s for some wine in the evening, and then go home. Or maybe you and Glavel will go to Glavel’s house, then you’ll leave early and swing by to say hi to Jorston’s family.

There are infinite possibilities. All of them will make someone unhappy. But you do what you need to keep yourself happy. Make sure you see the family members who are important for you to see (both your own and your partners’, if you are close to their families) and make sure you and your partners find some time without pestering aunts and insensitive grandmas to enjoy each other during the holiday season.

Hi flock! 1. Damn your gif game is strong. *bows down* and the 2nd thing...I think, what did old man call her?, skipper? has already arrived in SA today. She was online at 1pm today and followed an actress who is shooting another show in CT (Troy: Fall of a City). Noticed it because I follow Bella Dayne and she followed MM back. OR it was total coincidence but what are the chances with her... or maybe they aren't in SA atm because it's easter week. I mean I don't know their schedule so...

Hi, boo! I’d bet my favorite pair of period panties and an IOU for a fuck to give that the visit has nothing to do with another production. I saw something about a marathon that may or may not be in the mix, but I didn’t look that closely because I have crap to accomplish today. (LIES. I just don’t care.) 

Holidays and dropping in on family events is An A++ way to put a spotlight on the shit you’re trying to sell and a while ago, my DeLorean brand crystal ball apparently barfed out a prediction that an Easter visit would be in order. 

I just hope that since they’re all on location and away from home that our two STRICTLY PLANOTIC BFFs and Third Wheel Skipper have a nice holiday meal together because if everything is as they say it is that shouldn’t be weird at all. May their Easter table be as friendly and full of familiarity and love as that table at the BAFTAs.

Oh, wait…

The Dinner

Previous

It was coming up on two weeks since Cameron left to report for duty. The time went by fast but that was because i kept myself busy scheduling clients back to back. Cam and i FaceTimed almost every night usually until he or i would fall asleep. Some nights we had a little fun (😉) but most nights we just stayed up talking. He was so funny and had me crackin up about stories from his day. But as much as i enjoyed our FaceTime calls, i was ready for him to come back home because i was missing our sessions more than anything. He told me he was coming back from base on Memorial day and i was lit because i knew i was getting some (much needed) dick that same night. The only plans i made for memorial day was a dinner at my parent’s house that evening with my half-brother and his family, but that night i had no other plans than to have my legs wrapped around Cam. 

Growing up as a military brat, my family always took federal holidays pertaining to the service very seriously. Memorial day was like our Pre-Fourth-of-July and normally on holidays, my brother would drop in to celebrate. Jeremy (half-brother) and I were never really close growing up though, reason being was that he was a product of my dad’s first marriage. His Ex-wife was jealous of my parent’s relationship so in spite of his happiness, she kept his son from him. When Jeremy was old enough, he started coming around on his own, learning that the lies his mother told him about his dad and “his new family” weren’t true. Since then, Jeremy always made an effort to come around at least on the holidays.

I had spent majority of the afternoon at my parent’s house helping with dinner prep and talking with my mom and Summer (Sister-in-law) and playing with Liliana (niece) while my dad and Jeremy marinated then grilled the steaks.

When the food had finished cooking, everyone gathered to make their plates and headed out to the patio to enjoy the scenery and a nice meal. I had noticed my mom making an extra plate and setting out another placement at the table but i didn’t think much of it because I had my hands full with my busy-body niece who had finally fell asleep in my arms after playing all afternoon. By the time we all sat down at the table, Dad’s guest came walking through the house. i couldn’t make out the face, but the figure looked familiar. It wasn’t until he walked through the patio doors that i realized it was Cam. 

Surprised, I almost asked “what are you doing here?” but i caught myself because i didn’t want to be obvious that Cam and i have been talking since we met. But damn, i wish he would’ve given me a heads up that he was coming.

He walked towards his seat lookin all good and flashing that sexy ass smile of his. He greeted my parents first then stuck out his hand as he introduced himself to my brother and his wife. When it came to me, he greeted me subtly, acting like he couldn’t remember my name. I went along with it though. He knew how i felt about involving my parents in my business. They always over-analyzed everything and if i would have acted like i knew Cam like i know him, they would have internalized the relationship to make it seem like it was more than what it was and i didn’t want to go through all that with them. The twenty one questions, the “what are your intentions with my daughter?” type shit. And I know they do it because they care, but i just wasn’t ready for that yet. I barely knew anything about Cameron other than the fact that he could lay pipe and i wasn’t ready for an interrogation from my mom and dad about him. 

“Cameron, Thank you for joining us! We’re delighted to have you here.” My mom said as Cam took his seat. 

“Oh no, thank you for having me Mrs. Dianne. Everything looks delicious, wow.” 

“So Cameron, how are you liking your new position as a PO?” My dad asked taking a bite.

“I like it a lot. I’m definitely a lot busier when i get to base but it helps the time go by faster. The new schedule is nice too, two weeks on, two weeks off. It’s like having a vacation every month. And having a private living quarter is nice too. No more bunking with three other guys.” he replied taking a sip of his wine.

The whole while he and my dad were talking, i couldn’t help but look at him. i tried to be modest but he was so cute the way he interacted with my family. He was fitting right in, making us laugh, talking sports with my dad and Jeremy and even offered some advice to my mom about home repairs. I couldn’t take it, he was making me wet. I wanted to jump across the table and fuck him in his seat. I already knew he had me dickmatized, but now i was starting to become attracted to his personality too. I guess all the late night calls and cupcakin was starting to take an affect on me.

I guess my staring wasn’t as discrete as i hoped it was because when i looked up, Jeremy was looking dead at me smiling.

“Y’all fuckin?” he mouthed to me across the table.

“Shut up!” i mouthed back as my eyes got big and started smiling.

I looked around to see if anyone else was paying attention to me and Jeremy’s silent conversation but everyone else was swooning over Cam too. I looked back at Jeremy who was silently laughing to himself and shaking his head.

Damn. Was i being that obvious that even my older brother, who i never see, was able to tell? Shit. This is the first time that i’m seeing Cam like this. Actual boyfriend material and not just someone i’m fuckin. I was beginning to become infatuated with Cameron. And for the first time in months, I actually hadn’t thought about Stefon. 

After dinner was over Summer and I helped my mom clean up everything. I cleared the table while Summer and my mom packed up the extra food. Jeremy, Cam and my dad were inside the house still talking about sports and future football drafts. But i guess Cam somehow managed to sneak away from the conversation and make his way out to the patio where i was.

While i was outside grabbing the dirty dishes from the table, i felt a presence behind me and someone touch my arm. But i knew who it was so i didn’t have to look back. Cam hugged me tight and kissed my head.

“You look amazing.” he said still holding me tightly. 

“Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?” i asked

“I wanted to surprise you. Did i?”

“Ummm, definitely, but it was a nice surprise. I’m glad you came though cuz I missed you.”

“Well how about after we finish here, we go to my place and you can show me how much you missed me?”

“Sounds good.” I said laughing as he and I finished picking up the rest of the dishes.
