Prompt: Maya took a deep breath as she climbed into the bay window. Yesterday was Saturday. Saturday was her eighteenth birthday. And Riley didn't know everything that happened.

The freezing January wind nips at Maya’s skin as she climbs up the fire escape to her best friend’s apartment. It’s early. Or very late. She’s not too sure, to be honest.

This Woman’s Work (Roman Reigns x Reader)

Context: Reader and Roman have a secret and it’s beginning to rip a hole in their hearts. Will they ever act on it?

**A/N: ** This is the sequel to “Mercy”. Different song choice used for this one though: “This Woman’s Work” by Maxwell. It’s a cover of the original 1988 song from Kate Bush but I like this one a lot better.

**SB: ** Trilogy? I don’t know. I’ll see how this part does first. As always, feedback is welcomed!

Read Part 1 here: Mercy 

This fic is on the longer side than Part 1 but I hope it’s worth it.

“…..Of all the things I should’ve said,

That I never said.

All the things we should’ve done,

Though we never did.

All the things I should’ve given,

But I didn't…..”

            3 months later: It was half past eight, a time that was usually too early for me to be awake, but I was. I sat down at a dining room table in my eight floor apartment. The beige curtains were drawn open enough to let the small cracks of sunlight peek through over the Manhattan skyline. The notebook laid out in front of me had the design ideas and the color scheme I had set for my wedding. But the man that I was marrying was never around to help.

           “Oh, you can do the decorations yourself for now. I count on you, babe. If you need help, just call your friends.” He said, sounding hurried and surprised to hear my voice on our last call. 

           “I have another business trip in Chicago on Thursday, then I’m flying out to France to meet with investors. I’ll chat with you about the wedding plans tonight.”

            Most of the time, we only communicated through video chats or text messages; all of which occurred during the early hours of the morning or in the late hours of the nights. I sighed. I was set to get married the following summer.

Happy Birthday, Percy

      This is unedited like everything else is so be warned.


         If Percy could choose one day to be left alone, he’d choose his birthday. Alas, here he was, knee deep in mud with a look on his face that could kill any monster that was unfortunate enough to come by him.
“We could’ve said no,” Grover says from beside him. It only makes Percy’s scowl worse, because no, he couldn’t have said no if he wanted to.
“It will only take an hour, Percy, I promise,” his dad said, that was five hours ago. He didn’t even know what this favour was, just something his father asked him to do. “You’ll see what I need when you get there.” Percy hated not knowing what the purpose of this small, quest? Was it a quest? He’s going to call it a quest. He hated not knowing the purpose of this small quest. It made him not want to do it even more than he already didn’t.
        When Percy woke up this morning he had Annabeth happily straddling his lap with a plate of pancakes and a large smile on her face. He got a present from her in the morning, tickets to a Knicks game for the two of them and Grover and a pendant for his camp necklace that was filled with water from every sea and ocean. She told him that hisother present would come later tonight. By the looks of it, he was not going to get that present which only ticked him off even more. 

“Do you think they do this on purpose?” He asked Grover once they got out of the giant pile of brown sludge. They both looked disgustingly down at their legs, all this mud will only slow them down.
“Do what?”
“Plan these things at the worst possible time? I just wanted a nice quiet birthday for once. Of course, now I’m with you, my pants are ten times heavier, I need new shoes, and I think I’ll be washing monster dust out of my ears for the next 3 days.” Grover stopped wiping off his legs and raised an eyebrow at his friend.
“We haven’t seen any monsters thou-oh.” He followed to where Percy was looking, standing there were two empousai. They looked familiar, Percy knew that they were part of the group him and Annabeth encountered in Tartarus. He didn’t know their names and he didn’t necessarily care.

       "That took you three minutes and twenty two seconds, a personal best,“ Grover complimented as he stopped the time on his watch. "Something must really be driving you to finish.”
“A birthday cake and promised birthday sex from Annabeth,” Percy deadpanned. Grover only hummed in response, mildly horrified but not surprised by how forward Percy was being. He too would be mad if he couldn’t get such a great gift because of such a stupid reason.
“How much further do you think it is?” Percy only pointed up the hill, at the top was the run down shack his father told him about. “That’s it?” Percy nodded. Grover looked over at him and backed away, an expression like that was not a good sign on a demigod as powerful as Percy. If he got any angrier he could flood the small town they were in without even thinking about it.
“If this ends up being another cup of coffee I swear.” Grover snorted at the memory, the great quest of Christmas 2014. Four days, a frostbitten hoof, and an arrow to the shoulder, all because Mister Poseidon wanted the perfect cup of mortal coffee. Percy and Annabeth almost took off the sea god’s head when they got back, it took Grover and Tyson to keep them back.
“He wouldn’t send you on a quest on a birthday if it wasn’t important, would he?”
“I wouldn’t put it past a god.”

       The shack was empty. Percy screamed. Grover watched as his best friend destroyed a door with his sword. Grover took said sword away. Percy calmed down.
“I’m going back home,” Percy finally decided. He walked out of the shack from the now hole that used to be the door and put his fingers in his mouth. Grover had to cover his ears to cover the whistle.
“Blackjack?”
“Yup, gonna stop me again?” Grover looked down at his watch and shook his head.
“Nope.” They both sat down on the single step leading to the wood building. Percy was half expecting to fall right through. “And I didn’t stop you last time, you decided to keep going.” Percy scoffed and shoved Grover.
“You literally covered my mouth until I promised not to whistle for Blackjack and you made this whole deal about how unfinished quests can ruin a half-blood.” Grover shrugged and looked back down at his watch. “Why do you keep doing that?”
“Doing what?”
“Checking the time, it’s only been two minutes.” Grover stayed quiet, obviously trying not to catch Percy’s eye. Percy knew his best friend, he knew his best friend better than his best friend knew himself. Even without the empathy link working anymore Percy could tell that Grover was hiding something. “Spill.”
“Annabeth asked your dad to give you a quest because she wanted you to get away while she set up your party and you kept getting through everything too quickly and-”
“Slow down, so I’m having a surprise party?” Grover wanted to punch himself. He did punch himself. Percy rolled his eyes and stood up, whistling again hoping Blackjack would come faster.
“Don’t tell Annabeth I told you, she’ll kill me if she finds out,” he begged standing up too.
“Where is it?”
“Your parents’ apartment.”
“How many people are going to be there?”
“How many people aren’t going to be there is the real question.” Grover dodged the pen that was thrown at him. He’s gotten pretty good at handling an angry Percy.
“Hey, Boss!” Grover didn’t hear it, but Percy sure did. Percy smiled at the black pegasus as he landed.
“Did you know about it?” Blackjack nodded and told him to get on, Grover followed and held on tight. He wasn’t very fond of Air Blackjack. “My apartment first, I smell like wet goat.”
“Hey!”

       Percy stared at himself in the mirror as he buttoned up his shirt. He had to look like he didn’t know, but he also didn’t want to make Annabeth mad and show up to his own party like he just rolled out of a mud pit.
“You clean up nice,” Grover said, joining him as he too buttoned his awful green shirt, it looked familiar but he’d never seen Grover in anything other than orange camp t shirts.
“Same to you, where’d you get that shirt from?” Grover smirked.
“Your closet.” Percy shoved him again. “We’d better get going, can’t be late.”

       He unlocked the door with his own key, a large smile spreading across his face as the room full of his friends and family yelled happy birthday as he walked in. He felt a hug on his legs first, looking down all he could see was a mop of brown curly hair.
“Hey, Laura,” he said picking up his sister, “did you get me something?” She nodded and handed him the small box he noticed she had clutched in her hand. “Help me open it?” The girl beamed at him as she took the box back, she had no hesitation as she ripped apart her own wrapping.
“It’s a fishy for my Fishy” she stated happily. It was a small clay goldfish that he knew for sure their mom helped her make but there was no mistaking that the pink paintings were all her own.
“It’s perfect, just what I wanted,” he kissed her forehead and set her down, just in time to be pulled into a bone crushing hug by their mom.
“Happy birthday, baby,” she said handing him a fairly large bag, he kissed her cheek before pulling out what was inside. “They’re from Paul too, he saw you admiring his collection and wanted you to have some. Maybe start your own?” Percy could only gape at the records. They were perfect.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you.” Sally could only laugh with every kiss her son gave her. “Where’s Paul anyway?”
“He’ll be here soon. Now, enjoy your party, its been awhile since you’ve seen your friends.” That was the cue for said friends to circle him with their own presents and happy birthday hugs. However, all Percy could think of was where Annabeth was. She wasn’t in the crowd of people.
“Happy birthday, Jackson,” a deep voice said shoving a box into his stomach. Percy didn’t even need to see who it was to know.
“Thanks, La Rue. It won’t hurt me will it?”
“I’m not a monster, Per-”
“I got it, don’t worry,” Chris said ruffling his still wet hair, Percy thanked him before they walked off. He accepted all the gifts given to him and handed them off to Grover who put them who knows where, for all Percy knew Grover was eating them all. The crowd finally cleared to start the party and finally the people he wanted to see were in front of him.
“Our presents are in your sister’s room,” Hazel said as she wrapped her arms around him, “might not want to open Piper’s indoors, it might explode.”
“Will not!”
“It will, you packed it while wearing armour,” Jason said earning himself a smack.
“Thanks, guys. Have any of you seen Annabeth?” Piper smirked, Frank and Jason laughed into their hands, only Hazel offered him an answer.
“She’s on the fire escape.” Apparently Percy looked a bit hopeful because Piper burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.
“You gotta wait till you get home for that, Percy. She just wanted some air.” Percy rolled his eyes, thanked his friends one more time, and gave Grover a final salute before walking towards the window that lead out to the fire escape.

       Annabeth hadn’t noticed him when he climbed out, he shut the window drowning out the inside noise and sat on the sill. She had her back to him and he admired her seemingly effortless hair and the dress she was wearing that hit just the right spot.
“You knew,” she said, he dropped his hand into his hands and groaned. “If you didn’t know then you’d be wearing your pyjamas right now, am I wrong?”
“You’re never wrong.” Percy could tell Annabeth was smiling, he didn’t need to see her face to know. “That stupid quest thing really tired me out, Annabeth, if I wasn’t told then I would’ve just went right to sleep.” It was a lie, he wouldn’t have fallen asleep. Not with the promise of a certain birthday gift keeping him awake.
“Sorry about that, couldn’t think of another way to get you to leave me alone.”
“Well I’d rather be alone with you in our apartment on my birthday than with my best friend in a giant mud pit. Muddy goat is not a nice smell by the way.” Annabeth laughed which made Percy’s smile bigger. He finally stood from his spot on the sill and wrapped his arms around his girlfriend. She leaned back into him, turning her face so that she could see his face.
“You look nice.”
“Thanks, so do you.” Annabeth jumped when Percy’s hand touched her thigh but she didn’t move it away. “Do I still get that present?”
“Two hours, we nee-eed, stop it, we need to stay for at least two hours,” she stated turning around to face him. His arms were still stayed around her so he just used the new position to kiss her, something he didn’t get to do when he woke up. “Percy”
“Hm?”
“As much as I love kissing you, we should get inside,” she said, however, the way her eyes were still looking at his lips told him something entirely different.
“Lets just wait till someone comes to get us, yeah?” Annabeth bit her lip, looked over Percy’s shoulder at the window, and nodded.
“Fine, but no fondling, I don’t want someone like Frank catching you wish your hand in my-Percy!” She moved his hand and placed it on the railing behind her.
“Sorry, fine, just kissing then.”
“Good.” He leaned back down and pressed his lips back to hers. He could stay outside forever if it meant he’d at least be getting birthday kisses from Annabeth. He’ll stay outside until it’s not his birthday anymore. He’ll stay outside till his next birthday. He’ll only stay outside for a minute because Grover Underwood was a complete ass.
“You guys coming in?” Annabeth smiled up at him and patted his chest.
“Happy brithday,” she whispered giving him one last peck before climbing back inside. Percy followed and flipped off Grover.
“Couldn’t wait just five minutes?”
“Nope, happy birthday, buddy.”

Heavenly Commentary: Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Lily: You're back. How's Padfoot?
  • James: ...He escaped.
  • Lily: I'm sorry, what?!
  • James: He escaped. Turned and slipped through the bars. Swam right off the island. Watched him do it.
  • Lily: Why?
  • James: Because he's innocent?
  • Lily: He's always been innocent. Why now?
  • James: How am I to know?
  • Lily: I thought you guys knew everything about each other?
  • James: We used to. But these days the conversation is a little one sided.
  • ***
  • James: Happy birthday son.
  • Lily: Happy birthday Harry. We love you so much. And we're so proud of you...
  • James: Shh it's ok...
  • ***
  • James: Oh crap. Marge is coming. I hate this woman.
  • Lily: We all do. But at least he'll go to Hogsmeade.
  • James: One way or another.
  • ***
  • Lily: ...What did this bitch just say about me?
  • ***
  • Lily: Bad blood?!? I'll fucking kill this bitch.
  • James: Evans calm d-
  • Lily: No one talks about my boy like that!
  • ***
  • Lily: Ha! Serves you right, you pathetic creature!
  • James: True but him walking around Surrey with his stuff isn't the best of outcomes.
  • Lily: He'll be fine. He's survived worse.
  • James: I forgot you get like this.
  • ***
  • James: Was that...Padfoot?
  • Lily: I think it was. Why did he come to Harry?
  • ***
  • James: Three hours on the run and he walks right into the minister. He's not a good criminal is he?
  • Lily: That's a good thing. Why does Fudge seem fidgety? And why not press charges?
  • ***
  • Lily: He fell asleep with his glasses on. So adorable. My baby.
  • James: He'll be ok for a few days. I'm going to see if I can find Sirius. Maybe find out where he's going.
  • Lily: Ok be safe. Don't die.
  • ***
  • Lily: He looks so happy. Under the sun, surrounded by people.
  • ***
  • Lily: Any luck?
  • James: None. What's he been up to?
  • Lily: Enjoying freedom. Spent the last few days ogling a new broom. Best in the- James come back here!
  • ***
  • James: So they think Sirius wants to kill Harry? Are they stupid?
  • Lily: Given that they don't know a rather key piece of information, it's actually the logical conclusion.
  • James: No, they knew how close we were. They should have known he'd never betray us. And what's with "he's at hogwarts"?
  • Lily: That caught my attention too. It's possible he is actually after Harry. But to tell him the truth.
  • James: But like you said. Why now?
  • ***
  • James: Moony? He's teaching?
  • Lily: He looks so old...what happened to him?
  • James: He thinks one of his best friends killed the other three.
  • Lily: He's been so alone all these years.
  • ***
  • Lily: Why is the train stopping? And why is it getting colder?
  • James: How?
  • Lily: Frost on the glass. Oh my. Dementors. Why are they-
  • James: HARRY!
  • ***
  • James: Scream? Who screamed?
  • Lily: No one.
  • ***
  • Lily: I imagine Sirius is the Grim she is referring to.
  • James: I think so. You know, she looks like a crazy old lady but she's pretty talented.
  • Lily: She saw a big black dog and thought 'death omen'.
  • James: Yes, but she still saw the dog.
  • ***
  • Lily: How stupid do you have to be to insult a hippogriff?
  • James: About that stupid.
  • ***
  • James: If Harry is told that Sirius got us killed then he'll go after him.
  • Lily: I know. But Padfoot isn't the bad guy. So Harry isn't in any danger.
  • ***
  • James: Look at that greasy haired bastard. Look at his eyes. He's terrified of what Moony will tell Harry.
  • ***
  • Lily: Padfoot did that? Why?
  • James: This makes no sense. He came to Hogwarts to get into Gryffindor tower? What the hell?
  • Lily: How did he get in the castle?
  • James: He's a marauder Evans.
  • ***
  • James: Recognise and kill werewolves; you...aargh!
  • Lily: When did he become so awful?
  • James: He was always like this Lily. Just never to you. Natural born death eater.
  • ***
  • Lily: I'm fairly certain that was Sirius in the stands.
  • James: Probably. It's a good ga- Dementors!
  • Lily: HARRY!
  • ***
  • James: The broom...
  • Lily: You're more worried about the broom than the boy!
  • James: He's fine. But the broom...
  • ***
  • Lily: Please no...
  • James: It's you screaming. He hears you.
  • Lily: He hears me die...no James I can't take it! It's not right! IT'S NOT FAIR!!
  • James: Sshh...
  • ***
  • James: That's my map! Those little ginger geniuses! They've given Harry the map!
  • ***
  • Lily: He's listening to everything. Look at his face. It's killing him.
  • James: He may never know the truth. Only Sirius and Peter know what truly happened.
  • ***
  • James: He's so...angry. He hates Sirius so much.
  • ***
  • Lily: Isn't that the new broom? James?
  • James: ...That's...the sexiest thing I've ever seen...
  • Lily: You're forgetting that night when I wore that little red thing.
  • James: ...No I'm not.
  • ***
  • James: Strip it down?!? What the fuck?!?
  • Lily: Calm do-
  • James: HOW WOULD PADFOOT BUY A BROOM?!?
  • Lily: Why don't you ask him. Then ask him if he'll wear that red thing for you because I won't.
  • James: That's so- wait what?
  • ***
  • James: He...he heard me?
  • Lily: Oh god, he's crying.
  • James: We all are. I used to hate that our son didn't know what we sound like. Now I can't think of anything else I want more.
  • ***
  • Lily: Are you serious? Harrys patronus is YOU?!?
  • James: Our boy has style. Don't be jealous.
  • ***
  • Lily: Why the hell is Padfoot attacking Ron?
  • James: He didn't actually attack Ron.
  • Lily: You know, you're right. Let's throw him a parade! Why is your friend being so STUPID?!?
  • James: Why is it that whenever he does something stupid he becomes "my friend"?

  • ***
  • James: So they saved one beast. Let's see if they can save the other.
  • Lily: Dumbledore planned this all along. You realise that right?
  • James: I do.
  • Lily: He takes too many risks with our boy.
  • ***
  • Lily: He thinks it was you? Why?
  • James: Because I look like my son. Harry conjured that Patronus.

  • James: He's going to try to see his father save his past self without realising that it was in fact his former present self that saved his then future self.
  • Lily: It's like you want me to hit you.
  • ***
  • Lily: They did it. They actually did it.
  • ***
  • James: Your damn right I would've been disappointed Moony.
  • Lily: Yes yes and unfortunately he's TOO much like you. And now Remus is leaving again. I hope he'll land on his feet.
  • James: Cats land on their feet. He's a dog.
  • Lily: You're awful.
  • James: And he's incorrigible.
  • ***
  • Lily: He carries you within him. That's something.
  • James: That's...that's everything.
  • ***
  • Lily: Padfoot you're brilliant!
  • James: Hogsmeade and a firebolt. Clearly he's trying to be the favourite.
  • Lily: The favourite? He's the only one there.
  • ***
  • James: I was thinking...
  • Lily: About the prediction and Pettigrew? Me too.
  • James: He's coming back. And when he does he's going to go after Harry.
  • Lily: I know.
  • James: What can we do?
  • Lily: Nothing.

anonymous asked:

hi. the 1st time i heard bastille's songs was in april (i think). but i wasn't a fan. now, i'm in love with the band, but i don't know anything about them, i only know the names of them, and i just know who is dan and woody, i always get confuse with kyle and will. also, i didn't understand the videos (only bad blood). i'd like to ask you to explain to me the band, the videos (if you know), 'cause i don't want to say "i'm a bastiller" without knowing anything about the boys... pls

i’m really sorry for not answering this earlier mate but i only noticed i got this message at like 4 am and i went to sleep right after i finished writing it (and also my power went out just as i was about to publish this and stuff so i’m sorry if you thought i was ignoring you)

(disclaimer: i wrote everything at like 5 am so if nothing makes sense it’s because i was really just sleep deprived, also it’s really fucking long because i got a bit too excited)

kay so for starters this is daniel campbell smith (but he just goes by dan smith as everyone knows i dont even know why i’m saying this), he’s 27 years old, his birthday’s on the 14th of july and he’s 6’1 (1,85 cm?) tall if you were wondering, and he’s awesome (even though he doesn’t really think so)

he’s the lead singer and the person who writes/composes all the songs and stuff and he plays the piano/keyboard like a damn fuckin pro (cos he is one) and during live songs he bangs like 2 drums and its just hella cool. just to sum it all up he used to be a solo singer and all of a sudden he just decided he wanted to form a band cos apparently being a solo singer didn’t really appeal to him so he grabbed woody and will that were already on his live band and later kyle and then made bastille a thing

some funfacts about him: the band’s named after bastille day which happens to be the on his birthday, he’s a hUGE david lynch fangirl (see: his entire fucking wardrobe, that one song he wrote about laura palmer, his hair???, etc), he really really likes movies (he studied english literature because he wanted to be a journalist so then he could write about movies), he’s also a pessimistic little shit and he’s like negative about everything but he’s really humble and kinda shy and stuff and basically just a really nice guy i’d totally go out to have a drink with him sometime

anyway moving on this is kyle johnathan simmons(apparently his middle name is johnathan according to like some sites??), he’s 25/26 so he’s like the youngest person in the band which is really weird to me?? either way, his birthday’s on the 5th of february, he’s like 6’3 (1,90 cm) and he’s also awesome

he’s the guy that plays the synths and the keyboard and the bass in some songs and does backing vocals and bangs the drums with dan like at the end of of the night and he also shakes that weird egg thing i don’t know the name of and fuck it he basically plays a lot of shit there you go. he was like the last person to enter the band. legend tells that one day he was on a houseparty dan was also on, and at some point dan got kinda (i mean really) drunk and he just started to go around inviting literally everyone that even held an instrument to join the band and kyle was literally the only one that said yes, and thus bastille was formed

funfacts: he’s got like the best moustache in all the land, all the fans give him weird cat apparel because he has an “obsession” with cats, he’s pretty much a 6 year old child?? i mean like according to some of the other members he watches a lot of disney movies and stuff like that and like until a few months ago he’d never drank coffee in his life???; he’s got a lot of bling like hella son and he doesn’t like fish. dont make him eat fish.

anddd here we have woody. his name is actually chris wood but no he’s woody. dont call him chris because nobody is gonna know who the fuck ur talking about. anyway he’s 29, born in july 6th, he’s 5’6/5’7 (1,70 cm?) (EDIT: APPARENTLY HE’S LIKE 5'10 BUT WELL) which makes him the shortest in the band, and he’s less awesome. he’s also awesome. no he’s more awesome.

anyway he’s the drummer and a professional clapper when they have to do acoustic sessions and stuff, and like everyone else that isn’t dan he does backing vocals. back in the day when bastille wasn’t a thing and dan had his little solo project his mum gave him a flyer she found about some drum teacher and she was like “you should call him, he might have some students!!” so he marked a meeting with the guy thinking he was some 80 year old bloke with a beard but he turned out to be woody and as he didn’t have any students he just offered playing for him and dan was like lol k

facts: he has some nice ass hair i’m seriously jelly of (though he’d switch hairstyles with anyone else in the band because he bumps into things a lot because of the long hair though apparently cutting it isn’t an option), he’s from plymouth and i dont know why that’s relevant but they always seem to bring that up in a lot of interviews so yeah and he’s muse’s number 1 fan and i can’t think of anything else to put here i’m writing this at 5 am don’t blame me

and last but not least we have my fav member of the band william farquarson. he’s 30 years old, his date of birth is on the 22nd of september, he’s 6’1 (1,85 cm) as well and he’s awesome. like real awesome.

anYWAY he plays the bass and the guitar and sometimes in some live songs the keyboard aaaanndd he does backing vocals. as far as i know one of his friends told him to check dan out and he went to one of his gigs and he was like “oh he’s really good” and then he kinda became obsessed with the idea of joining his band so he just started to talk to dan and basically just lie about every single thing like how he could play the keyboard and sing and how he disliked jazz while he loved it just to make a good impression and join the band (which worked out in the end go will)

and for some facts about him: he’s got the best fucking beard in the entire planet (hashtag tru confirmed by me), he’s an actor, like a decent one, he does the art thing like really well too, he’s a suave motherfucker, maybe a tiny bit gay, and he’s the only one in the band with tattoos (he’s got a spider, the parker pen logo or whatever the hell that is and ‘bad blood’ written on the most embarrassing font possible which he got while really fucking drunk in texas on the release date of their album), and as stated before he lies a shitload so i wouldn’t believe a thing he says

also by the way bastille fans aren’t called “bastillers”, they’re “stormers” which is a reference to the storming of the bastille and stuff and i think that’s kinda cool tbh

and if this wasn’t really enough for you there’s this post that like has a lot of links to other guides to bastille and such

i’d try to explain the vids to you but man i don’t understand like half of them so i’m not even gonna attempt, i’d recommend asking other people about it if you really wanted to know though.

Adam/Nigel story (1/2)

Hello, my lovelies ^-^ I wrote this ficlet a couple of weeks ago after some comment I read on my bb ter0rr’s blog about Adam, Nigel and a possible daddykink scenario. Please note I am not back on the writing saddle yet, so it will take me some time to write the next part- but I felt like publishing this first chapter for you all ♥

I tried to be as respectful as I could to Adam’s characterization as a young man with Asperger’s, and if I succeeded it was because of the invaluable help I got from brassknuckled, who sent me a quick and insightful beta which made the story so much better <3

I hope you enjoy it! :D

TW for this chapter: Violence, explicit language, slurs.

I Will Wait - Chapter 9

Chapter 8

________________________________________________________________

A/N - Shout out to my MUSE irenehooliganp-dubber​ , for patiently listening to my crazy theories on what Stefan is thinking and where he is at (in my ff), on what the Heretics really want, new mythology ‘ideas’ and of course my ‘vision’ for Steroline ! Thank you for being my sounding board since chapter 1 ! I don’t think I could have reached this far without you.

P.S. irenehooliganp-dubber​ has JUST joined Tumblr. She is a Steroline stan, a Stefan Stan and a brilliant writer. Follow her folks ! !

________________________________________________________________

Day 52 

I don’t get it” Damon informs Stefan as he and Stefan take the camping equipment from the trunk. 

“You don’t get what?” Stefan asks. 

“If you were in love all this time, what was all the confusion about?”

Stefan sighs.

“I guess I never believed I could love like that…” Stefan replies slamming the door of the trunk shut. 




1998

“I don’t get it..” Lexi admitted. Stefan and her were sitting on the ledge of a random roof drinking out of their respective bottles. 

“What’s not to get?” Stefan replies taking a sip out of his bottle. 

“So what..you just meet somebody and fall in love with them…just like that ? That’s how true love works..?” Lexi asked sceptically. 

“ Something like that…”

Lexi did not look impressed.  She thought over it for a minute and continued “Honestly… that’s not exactly the kind of love I would want for you..”

“You don’t want me to find true love? What kind of a best friend are you?” Stefan teased. 

Lexi stared into the night sky and said,  “I think there’s something better out there..”

Stefan laughed at Lexi’s words. 

“What could be better than true love?” He said containing his laughter. 

“It’s hard to explain..”

“’Cause’ it doesn’t exist” He quipped. 

Lexi took a swig at the bottle in her hand as she struggled to articulate her thoughts. Her gaze remained fixed on the tiny stars that illuminated the dark canvas that was the night sky, almost as if they held an ageless wisdom that she needed to tap into.This was one topic she knew Stefan to be stubborn about. His notion of love wasn’t something he let anyone influence, not even her.

She finally decided to speak, or slur in this case. Maybe he will mull over it later when he was sober. 

“It’s the kind of love that… finds you when you are not looking for it….one that.. builds over time through numerous shared experiences… one that..sort of sneaks up on you, because you never really saw it coming….And before you know it, you are in so deep that you can’t shake it off no matter how hard you try. And once you embrace it, you never wanna live without it…”

Stefan wasn't convinced.The musings of a drunk Lexi was surely entertaining, but that’s all they were to him, random ramblings of an inebriated mind. He couldn't take her words seriously. Lexi was an expert on a lot of things, but when it came to the topic of love, he didn't need another’s opinion to ratify what he believed to be true. Besides Lexi sometimes did have a habit of pulling his leg for sport. 

“Lexi…A - you're DRUNK ! B - Love is not a thief in the night, it can’t sneak up on you… C - they don’t call it FALLING for nothing.. I don’t think you can FALL and not know it ! So stop messing with me and drink up !”




Present Day - At a deserted camp-site by a lake 

The sun has already set. Stefan is busy fiddling with his phone by the camp-site.

“There is no cell reception here” He declares

“So?” Damon has never known Stefan to worry about his cell phone range. 

“So what if the girls want to reach us?” He asks his brother.

“I’m sure they can go without us for a few days…” Damon dismisses Stefan’s concern. “You wanna help get some firewood ?”. 

“Nope” Comes the quick reply. 

Stefan walks over to where Ric is seated. He takes a seat a few feet away from him. He is acutely aware of Ric’s despondence. He wants to say something.. something to… help him…? Console him maybe? Give him hope ? But what does one say to a man who has literally lost everything?

“Are you ..” Stefan starts only to be cut off by Ric, “No..I’m not Ok and no I’m not going to be OK”.

Stefan doesn’t broach the subject again.

“What are you going to do about Caroline?” Ric questions Stefan, breaking the silence.

Stefan is not sure if he wants to discuss Caroline with Ric. Its not like they are best friends. Besides, it feels like rubbing salt in Ric’s exposed wounds to talk about his potential future happiness. So he chooses to remain silent and fixed his eyes on at the lake glistering in the moonlight in front of him. 

“Go on…humour me” Ric insists. 

Maybe it will distract him from his own life, Stefan reasons with himself as he proceeds to answer Ric. 

“I told her I would wait… for her to heal.. I don’t want to rush her into anything before she is ready…”

“That’s a nice thought..” Ric admits. It takes Stefan by surprise. He was expecting sharp criticism. Ric looks like he’s less hostile now. Reminiscent almost.. “But sometimes now is all we have” Ric adds as an after thought.. The bottle in his hand is almost empty. He looks at Stefan and continues,  “Just because you said you would wait, doesn’t mean you can’t show her what she means to you.” 

Stefan looks over at the empty shell of the man who used to be Alaric Saltsman. He has known the man for years. And he has always known him to love his liquor. But never once has he seen him so desolate. It’s almost as though he’s begging the Gods that created him to end his suffering. 

“My fiancé is dead.” Ric says. His voice is steady but thick with anguish. His eyes look ahead at the lake before them, they are devoid of life or love or any distinguishable human emotion… “My fiancé ..who was pregnant with my kids… and I don’t think anything will ever be the same again for me…but I do know this.. She knew exactly what I felt for her…and that..is probably the only thing keeping me breathing right now..”




Day 53 (Happy Birthday Stefan)

“RISE AND SHINE BROTHER !” Stefan mocks Damon as he mercilessly pulls him out of his tent. 

“What?” Damon asks, too tired to come up with a witty retort.

“Get up, pack your stuff, we are going home”

“You want to spend your birthday on the road?” Damon really doesn’t understand his brother. Why would anyone spend their birthday driving for hours on end ?

Stefan doesn’t bother replying, he’s placing an unconscious Ric into the back seat of the car. 

…..

They’ve been on the road for an hour. Stefan has one hand on the steering wheel and the other on his phone. He is constantly looking at it, expecting the little beams that indicate cell-phone reception to appear at any moment. 

“Expecting a call?” Damon asks. He is clearly bored and looking for amusement.

Stefan doesn’t reply.

“Is this about Caroline? Is she why we are driving back today and not tomorrow?”

Stefan’s eyes are still drifting from the road to his phone.

“So what, one bad advice and you won’t talk to me about your love life? In my defence I did not have all the information, you..”

“Did you apologize to her yet?” Stefan cut him off, his tone is accusatory.

Damon doesn’t reply. He’s quiet till they stop at a road-side diner. The human needs food, even though he doesn’t seem to want it. Stefan wants coffee anyhow. He didn’t get much sleep the previous night. His mind kept wandering back to Ric’s words. Lack of sleep is never a good colour on Stefan. He cheers up at the fact that he has cell reception now.  He checks his voice mail hoping to hear from Caroline. Birthdays don’t mean much to him, but he knows it means a lot to Caroline and somehow he feels that her avoiding him on his birthday is not a good sign. He feels uneasy that she would suggest a trip without her. Especially now …

Hey ! Happy Birthday ! Although, you probably won’t get this till the day after your birthday.. anyhow I hope you had a good birthday. Bye !

Stefan smiles at the sound of her voice and her little ramble. He dials her number and waits for her to answer. 

Caroline: Stefan, hey, happy birthday.. how are you calling me?

Stefan: Hi.. thank you.. I.. we are on our way back

Caroline: “What ? whyyy??

Stefan: Doesn’t matter.. what are you uhh.. up to today.

Caroline: I.. have a shift at the Grill 

Stefan: I thought your shift was last night

Caroline; Yeah I changed it..I.. uh.. didn’t want to lead anyone on.. so.. my shift is with Matt tonight

Stefan: Save me a seat at the bar?

Caroline: yeah .. sure…I gotta go.. happy birthday again.

Stefan: Bye.

Stefan has a goofy grin on his face as he replays the conversation he just had in his head. 




It’s late as the car finally crosses the border into Mystic Falls. Stefan has been driving for hours now. If not for his excitement to reach Caroline, they would have probably taken another one or two hours. This is all very amusing to Damon. The perpetually guarded brother that he has always known is suddenly not too concerned about hiding his eagerness to see his girl. There is even a visible change in his demeanour as they move closer to their destination. He seems more relaxed and there’s a ghost of a smile peeking from the corner of his mouth as his eyes come alive in anticipation. 

Stefan’s phone rings. Both brothers reach forward to grab it from the dashboard. Damon is quicker. 

“Why is Matt calling you?” He wonders out loud as he answers the call

“Where are you?” Matt’s laboured breathing is disconcerting. He doesn’t wait for an answer, “Get to the Grill. Now. Or send help”. The brothers hear the voice of a girl screaming as the call drops.

Garnet’s Shades

Before explaining this theory, I want to give full credit to my great SU friend and fellow theorist, dankndolly who came up with this theory. We were talking on Facebook because of the news that Steven Universe was coming back! This one is one of my favorites and I decided to post this with her permission of course!

So we know Garnet is notorious for wearing her shades or visor or whatever you guys want to call it. Garnet is mostly stoic and does not show much facial expressions because of her shades. Everyone at first thought she wore shades to be cool or to hide her third eye because of being found out as a fusion. However, dankndolly believed there was much more. What if Garnet uses the shades to hide her vulnerability? When Garnet takes off her shades, she shows her more vulnerable side and she shows trust when taking them off.

Here’s some evidence that will prove her theory.

We first see Garnet without her shades in “Arcade Mania” when Steven tried to break her out of a video game induced trance. It is revealed she has three eyes. However, anyone else noticed something here?

She does not get agitated or scared that Steven knocked her shades, but she also flashes one on after realizing what happened. This shows she trusts Steven to have her shades off. However, putting them back on also shows she is not ready to tell Steven much about her third eye.

“Mirror Gem” was by far the first time we see her showing emotions without her shades. When Steven talks to the Gems about the mirror acting on its own, Garnet tries to take the mirror away from him. Lapis Lazuli freaking out, Steven slaps Garnet’s shades off and we get this:

We see anger literally etched on Garnet’s face. I mean if someone just slapped you for defending a threatening object that you know is dangerous wouldn’t you be pissed? She does not hide her anger from Steven and even said he was in trouble. She felt a bit betrayed and angry of Steven’s actions and the fact he forcibly (technically accidentally) took of her shades. We do not see genuine emotion until her shades are off.

In “Future Vision” Steven is on the roof in panic because Garnet told him of her powers to see the future. Now this scene truly shows her vulnerability to Steven.

She is sorry for telling Steven about future vision. Garnet can see many possibilities that can hurt Steve. But what makes her truly scared is her being the one that hurts him. Notice how her eyes are showing fear and sadness. We don’t notice this until she takes off her shades. She also takes of her shades to show Steven she is truly sorry for what she did. Hence why “Future Vision” is the first time we see Garnet vulnerable and wanting Steven to trust her again.

This episode does not really show much emotion, but is worth using as evidence. In “The Return” Garnet is struck with a destabilizer and poofs. Notice the scene here:

Her shades are falling off and we see another emotion we do not see much: fear. When falling down and separating, she looks towards Steven because she is afraid of what will happen to him. Again her shades are off and showing emotion.

A favorite and an episode no one can forget is “Jailbreak” because we get to see Ruby and Sapphire, Garnet’s counterparts of fusion. When Ruby and Sapphire fuse, we see a happy Garnet.

Notice how this is the first time we see her appear without shades. At first you see her being happy because she returns as herself again. However, Steven is surprised that Garnet is a fusion and is a bit worried he wouldn’t accept her. The only thing Steven is concerned about is if he met Ruby and Sapphire okay. Garnet puts on a smile and is happy that Steven is okay with her being a fusion. We see her showing multiple emotions without her shades and does not put them on until Jasper arrives. Again this shows her trust towards Steven.

By far one of the darkest episodes “Keeping It Together” definitely shows Garnet’s fear and conflict. When Steven and Garnet found the underground cavern in Kindergarten, they find gem mutants. Steven is confused, but Garnet is terrified to the point she questions herself as a fusion. When Steven snaps her out of unfusing, Garnet has an argument with herself and Steven tries to snap her out of it.

Garnet’s shades were forced off and we see her acting very vulnerable and having mixed emotions. Notice how she doesn’t put her shades on until Pearl and Amethyst are near. This shows she trusts Steven in her most vulnerable state in the show, but not to the other Gems. 

Let’s go back in time. Literally for the Gems. We again get to see the young Gems in “We Need To Talk.” When Greg is trying to learn fusion, he asks Garnet how fusion works. She says it’s more than just combining, it’s about showing yourself to the other and being yourself.

Notice how she takes off her shades and winks at Greg. Garnet is showing him that she trusts him with Rose. When Greg says he get’s Garnet’s definition of fusion, she is smiling. The shades are off for a brief second to Greg, showing trust and recognition of someone who she deems is good for Rose.

“Cry for Help” is the first time we see her take off her shades in front of the other Gems. When Steven suggests Amethyst and Garnet form Sugulite to destroy the communication tower, Garnet refuses because of the incident in “Coach Steven.”

Notice how her facial shows concern, but what is really surprising is that she is taking of her shades in front of Amethyst. Garnet is showing Amethyst how serious and worrisome fusing Sugulite would be. She could also be showing her trust in Amethyst when taking of her shades

Lastly we have the preview of “The Answer” which is what got dankndolly to create this theory. Notice how Garnet is when saying happy birthday to Steven.

She is excited and happy because it’s Steven’s birthday as well as telling him the story of how Ruby and Sapphire met. She is shown without shades at all and smiling wider than seeing Stevonnie in “Alone Together.” Garnet trusts Steven to the point she would show up without her shades. She is also showing her vulnerable side by telling Steven an important piece of her past.

So far there is much evidence proving that Garnet’s shades correlate with her emotions. When she has her shades on, she becomes calm, stoic, and unreadable. Of course that is not all the time, but she is able to hide her emotions well. Once the shades are off, we see her more vulnerable and able to read her emotions. It also shows how much she trusts someone because she is exposing herself. Garnet’s shades is a shield to show her strength and power and once it is off she becomes more vulnerable yet trusting to other people, especially Steve.

I hope you are reading this dankndolly! I tried my best to explain your theory. Reread and took notes from our Facebook conversation and made gifs to show evidence. Also hope y’all like it as well!

anonymous asked:

I'm curious your thoughts on a couple things. 1: How to define lawful good simply (in layman's) just to keep it easy for folk to digest? 2: Any historical folk that pop out as Lawful Good for you?

  1. Simple definition of “Lawful Good” - A belief that one should do whatever is best for the greater good, and that a system or structure should be present to ensure their needs are met and protected.  I’m not sure if that’s actually “simple” or not.  How about - “Be nice, but you don’t get to decide for yourself what ‘nice’ is.”
  2. Oh heck yes.  Listen up nerds, we’re going to talk about Lucius Quintus Badus Assicus Cincinattus.

You haven’t heard of this beefcake because he’s hella old school Roman, like “before Roman Empire” Roman.  Shortly after Rome got tired of doing the “King” thing, they were being run by a Senate (a period known as the Roman Republic).  As indicated by the name, it was a Republic, governed by the patricians(thank Jupiter they didn’t actually use the word patriarchs, tumblr would light this post on fire).

Cincinnatus’ son Caeso (yes I spelled it right), made some serious political enemies who brought some trumped-up charges against him.  He YOLO’d & skipped town, leaving his dad to pay a hefty fine which resulted in Cincinnatus losing much of his land & family farm.

Not too long after this, the Roman army was getting its butt kicked by an approaching army, and the Senate was like “frick on a stick, we can’t decide what to do.  Instead of all this bureaucracy, why don’t we just let a dictator make all the decisions for us.” You would expect perhaps a collective WTF from the patricians, but instead they agreed and decided to make Cincinnatus  “Master of the People” aka, The Boss.

Now, you’re probably thinking “Wow, I can’t believe Cincinnatus convinced them to do that,” because you’re thinking why would anybody want a dictator.  But remember, this is 450 BCE and most folks had a king/emperor/dictator, so it was more like the Romans were asking for a red mustang for their birthday because their friend Becky got one for hers.  Oh, and by the way, while the Senate made this decision, Cincinnatus was out plowing his field.  (not a euphamism).  He wasn’t even there to “convince” them he should be In Charge, they came up with the idea on their own.

So while the Senate’s in a tailspin of “The British are coming!  The British are coming!” (well, Aequi, but whatevs) Cincinnatus is busy playing Old MacDonald.  The Senate shows up at his house and he looks at them all and goes “WTF why are you doing at my house?” and they say “Umm, You look like a hick, why don’t you put on some better clothes?”  (Painting above entitled “Cincinnatus gets pissed at uninvited guests but changes clothes for them anyways”)

So Cin gets his church clothes on for them and they say, “Good you don’t look like a redneck anymore c’mon we’re going back to Rome” and he says “why?” and they say “oh yeah, you’re The Boss now.”  So he gets back to Rome and instates a draft to go take care of the invading army, but instead of then saying “Good luck suckers, I’ll be plowing my field (total euphemism) while you’re at war” he instead falls in line with the infantry and charges in with the rest of them.

After Rome is saved (and he doesn’t slaughter all of his enemies mercilessly as was the custom of the day.  He definitely slaughtered some of his enemies, but no more than he felt he had to), he came back to Rome and said “Whelp, back to the farm.”  The Senate said, “Um, you sure?  You’re still The Boss.  You could do anything you want.”  And he said “Anything?” and they said “Yes anything.”  And he said “Anything?” and raised his eyebrow and they went “Yeah, anything” and he said, “Cool, I’m going back to my farm.”

That’s right, Cincinnatus decided being a farmer was more fun than being dictator, so he bailed (see what I did there?).  But that’s not the only time he passed at being a dictator.  Several years later, there were some rumors that a dude named Spurius (yeah it’s probably why we got the word that means what it means) was trying to get himself crowned king of Rome.  There was a conspiracy and nobody was really sure who was and wasn’t involved, so the Senate said, “Hey, remember Cincinnatus?  He’s a pretty stand-up dude.  How about we turn over the reigns of government to him, instead of somebody who sounds spurious (badum-ching).”  Once the conspiracy was put down (at the end of a sword), Cincinnatus said “can I go back to my farm now?” and they all said “Yeah, okay.” 

So he gave up being dictator not once but twice, serving the Roman Republic to the best of his ability, even after it cost him his family and his fortune. This brought out later comparisons between him and George Washington, who also could have probably had the United States of America on a silver platter because everyone loved him so much but he just wanted to go back to his farm.  The comparison was so strong that officers in the Continental Army formed the Society of the Cincinnati to honor the ideals of civic virtue, limited authority, and serving one’s country.  (The city in Ohio was named after it as well).

  • About 5 minutes into the class this beautiful girl came in
  • " sorry I'm late "
  • "Name?"
  • "YN"
  • "We'll YN you can take a seat in the back" he said pointing to me
  • " well class this is your new seat for the whole semester I hope you like it cause your not moving"
  • "Hey, uh, what's your name?" She asked.
  • "Jack. YN right?"
  • "Yup" she said popping the 'p'
  • "Nice name" I complimented.
  • "Thanks" she smiled and looked down, her cheeks getting a rosy tint.
  • The class ended and I got to know her real well. She's a tomboy which I kinda like too
  • {lunch time}
  • "Yo jack!" I shouted
  • "Hey what up man"
  • "Ok so in science there's like this really cute girl and I think I have a crush on her" I admitted
  • "Awe does jacky have a crush" he said in a baby voice
  • "Shut up" I shoved him slightly while looking down smiling. I think I do have a crush on her......
  • YN POV
  • "Hey YN!" My best friend Chelsea called
  • "Hey! What's up" I asked
  • "I over heard someone say they had a little crush on you" she smirked at me while wiggling her brows
  • "Ha good joke chels." I laughed at her comment
  • " no really. He said he was talking with you all science. So you know this boy" she said, her smirk growing wider
  • "Jack" I muttered under my breath
  • "Ooh so you do you like him?"
  • "Kind of...." I looked down feeling the blood rush to my cheeks. When I looked back up I found Chelsea had ran off. Shit she's gonna tell jack..
  • I ran out looking for her. I finally found her after 5 minutes talking to jack
  • "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" I yelled and jumped on her back causing us both to fall down as people looked down at us and laughed.
  • "I just set y'all up. You gotta meet each other after school at Starbucks near the mall at 4. Y'all can thank me later. Now you two get to know each other!" She called as she walked off
  • "Uh sorry about her.... She's kind of weird" I said after some awkward silence.
  • "It's okay. Um you don't have to meet me at Starbucks later. Like you can I'd you want but if not you don't have to" he rambled on
  • "Jack ill meet you it's fine"
  • *Flashback over*
  • 3rd person POV
  • That was the start of a amazing relationship between YN and jack. They have been inseparable ever since. They started dating a few days after that Starbucks date. There still together 4 years later. Lets look at there story now......
  • YN POV
  • "Jack you have to be on in 5 minutes stop!" You squirmed as he tickled you backstage at digi tour.
  • " ugh I don't wanna I wanna stay here with you!"
  • "Don't let your fans down come on go givem a show!"
  • "Fiiinneeee!" He exaggerated
  • I watched hime as he ran on stage with jack, Sam and Nate as they did there thing. I'm so proud of all of them.
  • I'm just a little disappointed because jack hasn't mentioned my birthday at all today. The boys have and same with twitter but he hasn't. I just don't get it because he always remembers.
  • "Now guys I wanna bring my beautiful girlfriend on stage and sing happy birthday for her. And give her a birthday present. YN COME ON STAGE BEAUTIFUL!" I can't believe jack just did that. But I got this rush of energy and I just had to run up!
  • All the girls screamed at the sight of me. I'm glad they all like me. I barely get hate.
  • They all started singing to me while I took a snapchat video of it.
  • Everyone started screaming when they saw snapchat on my phone. I laughed and made a few more videos.
  • Soon talk dirty came on the speakers and I was confused. Then jack sat me on a chair while all the guys took off their shirts. They all danced around doing body rolls and hip thrusts. Meanwhile I couldn't keep my laughs in and I new the fans were loving this.
  • The song ended And unfortunately it was the end of the show.
  • We were saying hi to some fans back stage and just having a good time.
  • " hi YN!"
  • " hi sweetheart"
  • "Babe ill be right back I forgot something in the tour bus" jack came over quickly, and pecked my lips and ran off
  • " so-" I started but she cut me off
  • " listen bitch I don't fucking know who you think you are but you can take your fat ass and ugly face and get the hell out of jacks life, better yet all of the boys life, that would be greatly appreciated. No one likes you. Your a fucking selfish bitch and your just using jack. At least I would have more to offer." She referred to her huge tits that were hanging out of her crop top
  • Tears welled at the the edge of your eyes. No one has ever said anything like that to you before.
  • "That's right cry you fucking slut" he hissed. I walked away from her past the screaming girls, into the bathroom and started crying. I got a few texts from all the boys asking me what happened. I didn't reply though. Then I heard the bathroom door open
  • "YN?"

Hilary Duff's Interview on "Reddit"
  • Fan: What will your second single be?
  • Hilary: I don't know what it's going to be!
  • Fan: Would you like to make another album down the line or will "Breathe In. Breathe Out." be your last?
  • Hilary: God, I hope not! I really want to make more music. I already want to start working on another record! I've lived with this one for so long now. I know everyone else is just now hearing it, but I'm already thinking of the next step. I will definitely not wait as long to make another record.
  • Fan: Hi Hilary! Fans were wondering about the songs that didn't make the album that you mentioned in interviews or posted clips of (i.e. Feel Alive, If I Fall, This Heart etc.) and wanted to know what happened to them and if we will ever hear them? Secondly, I wanted to know if you can see yourself making more albums after "Breathe In. Breathe Out."?
  • Hilary: That's the tough thing about making a record. You start somewhere, and you end somewhere, and only a certain amount of songs can be on a record. And the strong survive. It's sad. "If I Fall" is one of my favorite songs, and "This Heart" is a song I wrote about Luca, so maybe I'll sing it live in concert with him there, i sing it to him in general, but that's the way it goes - you cut some songs, they might not be as strong as others, but there's always options of ways to use them. Another song I wrote for the album is "Outlaw," and we put that in YOUNGER - so now we put it as a bonus track on a special record that you could only get here or there. But that's just the way it works - and you only have a certain amount of spaces.
  • Fan: Last month you performed (on my 20th birthday actually!) in front of a huge audience for the first time in a while.. how did that feel?! Do you have any plans for pop-up concerts this summer or maybe even a tour?!
  • Hilary: I do have some plans for a pop-up tour, maybe one or two shows, just to play the new music. But nothing set in stone yet. All is depending on schedule. But yeah, I definitely want to sure, I'm just shooting the second season of YOUNGER in September, taking a break for Christmas, and then getting a show together. I'm really missing playing live shows, and being onstage, and it felt so good to play that Boston radio show and see a live audience in front of me again.
  • Fan: Hey Hilary! Thanks for doing this today. I have always been a fan. Saw you twice in concert in 2004/2005. My sister & I used to fight over who loved you more!! I can't tell you how many posters we had of you. Tour books, door-sized posters, DVDs, CDs. It's been incredible to see you grow into a successful, independent, & beautiful adult. So my questions are which do you favor more? music or acting? Why? Also, what's the most meaningful song on Breathe In. Breathe Out to you? Also will we see you on Haylie's cooking show? Thank you so much!
  • Hilary: Well, first of all. That's a cute story. I have stories with my sister like that too. I would say maybe I feel more comfortable with acting, you know? I've done that longer. I feel like that was my passion as a child, and my dream. And I fell into the singing, and obviously, get something totally different from it. I love being a musician now. I think it took me a long time to consider myself that, because I really have to work at it. But being onstage, there's no other feeling like it. It's tough to choose. Being in front of a live audience is something really special. I'm trying to get an answer first! They're both so different. This season I was so upset, but I didn't get to be on Haylie's show. I was so busy with my record and traveling so much that none of our dates matched up. It was such a bummer, because it's such an amazing show, and we have so much fun together. And it's a shame, because we have so much fun cooking together. Next season, i will! My favorite song on Breathe In. Breathe Out., one that's close to my heart is "Braveheart." I wrote that song. And it's a bit of a sad song, but there's definitely strength in it. And I love that about it.
  • Fan: What would you tell the 13 year old you?
  • Hilary: Mmmm. I remember feeling really insecure at 13. Like, part of my job was...I had to have a certain confidence, and a certain bravery, but inside I felt like a very normal insecure 13 year old. And I guess I would tell her to just take it easy on herself. That everything sorts itself out. And everything's not such a big deal. And I guess I would be like "Just wait until you're an adult - Wait until you're an ADULT, if you think that's a big deal!" And I'd give her a pat on the back, and say "Good job. Calm down!"
  • Fan: A few years ago a friend and I were walking toward Avalon on a Thursday night when he spotted you at Katsuya. Being young and naive, I got very excited and turned back, at which I time I pointed at you and shouted "YOU'RE HILARY DUFF!" Then you slowly turned and walked away, seemingly frightened. Do you remember this encounter? If so, I apologize for startling you.
  • Hilary: *smiles* No, I don't remember that encounter, but I guess I'm used to being yelled at in public!
  • Fan: Hi Hilary! What is your favorite part of being a mom? What is your best remedy for when Luca has a cough?
  • Hilary: Ooh, that's a good one. I think I feel so grateful that I get to have so many new experiences with him. I mean, everything in my life has changed because of him, and all of it is for the better. It's so entertaining to watch how his little brain works, and the questions that he asks me, the things he's interested in - it's amazing to watch him grow and become a little person, and I get to watch him grow and follow along with him. And laugh a ton in the process. It's great.
  • It depends on how bad it is. They make some natural cough syrup that I will use? I'll try to keep a humidifier in his room. And put baby Vic's vapor rub on his feet and his chest when he's sleeping.
  • Fan: What's your favorite Taylor Swift song?
  • Hilary: Oooooh, toughie. Tough call. Maybe "Welcome to New York"?
  • Fan: Is there a reason why Hilary is spelled with only one "L"?
  • Hilary: Because my parents really made a huge mistake! I don't know... I like the way my name is spelled, and I think now the rest of the world knows how to spell my name, but growing up, it was pretty much ALWAYS misspelled.
  • Fan: Hiii Hilary! You are always camera ready and gorgeous, what's one makeup/beauty tip you can share with us?
  • Hilary: I am DEFINITELY NOT always camera-ready, or gorgeous, but thank you! Hmmmm. What's a good camera tip? I think not enough people focus on eyebrows. That's one thing I focus on a lot. Eyebrows frame your face. People tend to make their eyebrows too small, or too light. I think if you played around with it, you'd be surprised what the outcome would be.
  • Fan: Harry Potter or The Hunger Games? lol Love you!
  • Hilary: AWWWW that's EVIL! How am I supposed to choose?!?! HUNGRY POTTER! Yeah, I love the Hunger Games. But I might say Harry Potter.
  • Fan: What was it like working with Tove Lo? She seems like such a fun person. I'm in love with your new album and I hope you enjoyed working on it as much as I enjoy listening to it.
  • Hilary: Aww, thank you! I love hearing that.
  • Loved working with Tove. She's a cool chick, for sure. REALLY talented. And really added something special to my record. I'm really grateful for that.
  • Fan: what has been your biggest challenge to record your new album?
  • Hilary: I think... it's just been a growing experience. From the start of it to the end, it's just learning a lot about myself and about what I want to talk about and what I want to say and how I want to reach people and what I want them to know about me. How my voice sounds. It's been 7 years since I made a record. And I guess it was a very therapeutic experience, but also a lot of pressure to get it right, you know?
  • Fan: Hi Hilary, What do you have to say to your male fans? We love you, and we wish you all the best as this brand new BIBO era is about to begin! We want as many singles as possible, and come to Toronto please!
  • Hilary: I guess I would say what I would say to any of my fans, which is I'm really grateful for your support, and sticking by me for such a long time. You make an impact, and a difference, in my life. And I hope you relate to what I have to say on this record. And this is definitely going to be an exciting new journey, and I hope you come along for it!
