‘Where the Streets Have No Name’ came together in a bit of a rush the evening before we were due to start recording again…I was recording onto a four-track tape machine, working alone, sequencing keyboards to the drum machine. I was starting to get desperate and thinking about the next tour. I imagined being at a U2 show and tried to dream-up what I would want to hear. It was my attempt to conjure up the ultimate U2 live-song. It was a strange feeling when I finished the rough mix, because I thought I had just come up with the most amazing guitar part and song of my life, but I was totally alone in a big house with no one to share it with. I remember listening to the complete silence of the house for a few seconds after the music had stopped and then doing a dance around the room punching the air. Then I went home.
The Edge, U2 by U2
lmao that is the most adorable thing I have ever heard I love Edge so much
he is totally my spirit animal
also did this dude literally just spontaneously decide one evening “I’m going to write the best live song ever, like, THE quintessential song that will define U2 concerts forever henceforth,” and then just like…sat down and…did that??? in one night??? how
like damn son, if Edge had been around Italy in whatever BC, Rome WOULD have been built in a day
This is a really long post that comes down to the conclusion of exactly how long Kei and Yamaguchi have been friends so just press J now and scroll back up a bit don’t want to read it all.
Tsukishima Akiteru is about 6,5 years older than Kei, and since Akiteru’s birthday is in March, he is 7 years ahead of Kei in school.
This means that in chapter 88, when Akiteru starts high school, Kei is in his third year of elementary school (age 8-9)
I think this is the panel where the time skip between then and Akiteru’s 3rd year takes place, because when Kei says this:
He’s in this classroom:
Which could be year 3 class 5, or more likely year 5 class 3, but since Akiteru is in his 3rd year of high school, Kei is definitely in year 5 of elementary.
When Yamaguchi is being bullied, the bullies say this about Kei:
Which leads me to think that this event also takes place when Kei is in year 5. Of course, he could have been in class 3 in other years too, but Yamaguchi says “thanks for the other day” when he meets Kei again:
Thus, I think the bullying took place at the start of the school year (they’re classmates, as you can see in the earlier picture, so Yamaguchi would have known Kei’s face during the bullying if they’d been classmates for longer).
This also makes sense because when Kei asks Yamaguchi to come to Akiteru’s match with him, it’s the Interhigh prelims, which take place in early June. If the bullying hadn’t taken place in the beginning of the year, Kei and Yamaguchi wouldn’t have known each other well enough for Kei to invite him to come with.
In the 5th year of elementary school, students are usually 10 years old and turn 11. Since both Kei’s and Yamaguchi’s birthdays take place AFTER summer, these cuties are both still 10 here:
Skipping forward, when they go to Karasuno, Yamaguchi and Kei have been friends for 5 years already (and likely went to the same middle school. Otherwise they’d have been friends for 2 years in elementary and would then have met again in high school, which doesn’t feel like it fits the closeness between them at Karasuno.)
Finnrey Anastasia AU - except it’s not the lost princess, it’s the lost prince but it’s still in-universe because… I’m a massive nerd. And I’m sure this has been done before but uhhh consider:
Finn is the lost prince of Naboo, stolen from his mothers, the deposed Queens who were removed from power when the First Order started to claw its way to power - they managed to escape while a puppet was put in their place, but some bastard stole their light from them. Once they’re safe, they put forth a desperate plea to the galaxy to please, bring their son home. He lost his memory of the attack and was raised as a stormtrooper, but he remembers enough of his mothers’ lessons to know that it’s wrong - he defects and runs into Rey.
Rey is the street-smart quick-thinking schemer who worked in the palace before it was attacked, who tried to get Finn to safety when they were both ten years old but couldn’t save him from the First Order. She and Poe are after the reward but something pulls her to this boy with the heart of gold, something feels… different about him.
(bonus: BB-8 is Poe’s extremely affectionate and expressive tabby cat who is permanently sitting on Poe’s shoulders)
The trio flies around the galaxy, avoiding the First Order’s lackeys while Rey teaches Finn the ins-and-outs of how to act like royalty so they all nab that reward…. (but she certainly doesn’t expect to fall in love with him on the way…!)
Thanks to @artistefish I am LIVING for InuKag once more. Like, I always am, but it’s a burning fire right now. I’m really grateful, since I’ve been lacking the passion (but never the love!) lately. I am enthralled with her 90s High school AU SO MUCH I can’t even… ahhhhh! I’m getting nostalgic for all things pre-teen me used to love, and even made a playlist of old songs I used to listen to when I was younger and there was nothing but love for Inuyasha in my heart. I didn’t have a lot of time to work on this, but I had to throw something together to express my adoration for this AU and this artist/writer that I’ve admired for so long now.
Annabeth saw the first gift during the morning coffee rush while training the new kid they had just hired. She shoved the letter addressed to “cute blonde barista” into her apron and forgot about it. Customers were always trying to get her number, it was nothing new.
The second gift couldn’t be shoved into her pocket or forgotten, at least not without damaging it. Attached to the thorny fresh-picked rose was a note: “read my letter :)”. She made a mental note to open the envelope when she got home and plucked the petals off the rose, throwing away the stem. She’d find something to do with them; they were too pretty not to keep, even though Annabeth praised herself on being sensible enough to avoid getting caught up in fanciful things like flowers. They were too pretty to go to waste.
