i haven't made a thing in so long i don't even know how anymore

anonymous asked:

I don't watch voltron (I plan to but haven't had the time yet), so could you please explain the sheith discourse? Idk anything about any of the characters specifically, but just based on appearances I've always liked that better than klance.

Oh my sweet summer child, I wish you well if you ever decide to brave through this fandom hell. Okay so I’ll sum this up because honestly I do not wish to talk about this discourse anymore.

Everything started shortly after the show aired on Netflix on June 10th. Due to Keith’s and Shiro’s close bond, familiarity with one another and always attempting to protect each other, they became a popular ship. So popular in fact that Josh Keaton, Shiro’s voice actor, acknowledged this on his blog and even coined the name for the ship: sheith.

It didn’t take long until he and Neil Kaplan, Zarkon’s voice actor, started mentioning sheith on their twitters as well. To top it off, Chris Palmer, who directs the show, also made this Shiro drawing with the description “Shiro loves you, baby” and tagged “he is looking at Keith.” Honestly with so many people involved with the show (even if the VAs aren’t directly involved, it was still nice) showing support for the ship, and considering Montgomery and dos Santos who previously worked on The Legend of Korra are producers in Voltron, a lot of people believe they could become canon like Korra and Asami.

Things blew up however when SDCC happened in July. Tim Hedrick, Montgomery and dos Santos who were at the event were asked by a fan about the ages of the characters, since the only clue we had was the DreamWorks’ site saying they’re teenagers. Pidge is 14, Shiro is 25 at most and everyone else is late teens.

However, many fans interpreted it as proof that Shiro is factually 25 and the other three are 17 and claim that Shiro/Paladin ships are pedophilia, wrong, incorrect and a bunch of other nasty things. They use the video as confirmation and refuse each and any other evidence to contrary, even when it comes from the same people that were in the video. Some even attack the voice actors over it, which is why Josh Keaton stopped talking about ships altogether on Twitter. The truth is, most people before and after the video saw and still see Hunk, Keith and Lance as being 18-19 and Shiro as 20-22 at most, not 25 since he doesn’t even look that old.

There is a whole lot more to this story, including but not limited to the fact that the official comic still mentions they’re five teenagers even after the SDCC event, Josh Keaton confirmed on twitter that ages were never brought up during recording and how Hedrick, Montgomery and dos Santos refuse to answer any all questions regarding the ages, and someone found a video prior to the age video where Montgomery talked about Shiro being a student, not an instructor as people against the ship kept mentioning. Recently Pidge’s voice actor also snapchatted about Shiro/Keith and Shiro/Keith/Lance. Last week it was revealed that the garrison where the paladins previously studied at is college like education and a military base as well, meaning they couldn’t be younger than 18.

Tbh the whole thing is a mess, the only thing we know for sure is that the creators themselves apparently never gave this too much thought in the first place because they wanted people to see the characters as being the age they believe them to be. And now they either refuse to talk about it anymore or contradict each other in what they have to say about it, but antis refuse to stop and continue harassing shippers and the ship tags daily with violent threats and name calling.

Incidentally, NYCC is coming up this week and the same three crew members will there. It is speculated that more fans will ask them about the ages and I’m already dreading the next wave of shitstorm coming this friday.

For more about Shiro/Paladin discussions, this post is a good post about it.

KEITHS VLOG BROKE MY HEART SO HERES A FIC

MEGA THANKS to @hastalalaterkeith7152 for sending me quotes from the vlog so I could write this without internet and also motivating me


“I think it’s dumb.”

“Well of course you would, mullet,” Lance retorted.

“I’m just saying, there are better things we could be doing,” Keith fumed.

Lance raised an eyebrow. “Like what?”

“Hm, I don’t know, maybe trying to find Lotor?”

“Okay, that’s enough,” Shiro interrupted. “We haven’t found any trace of Lotor, so in the meantime, why not strengthen the coalition? It will be good for our allies to know more about their ‘defenders of the universe.’”

“Exactly,” Lance said. “So, Keith, get your butt in there and make a vlog!”

“I don’t even know what that is.”

Lance groaned. “Come on, mullet, it’s not rocket science. Vlog. Video. Log,” he drew the words out, one at a time. “Like a journal, but as a video.”

“What am I supposed to say?”

“Anything you want,” Shiro said. “Just be careful not to give away sensitive information, in case these ever get into the wrong hands.”

“Right. Sounds easy,” Keith muttered under his breath. Why couldn’t somebody else go first? That would make it easier. So far only Coran had done it, and Keith had learned from experience not to follow his example when it came to film making. But Pidge, Hunk, Allura, and Coran were all working on castle upgrades, and Lance and Shiro had a one-on-one training session planned. That left Keith to sit alone in what Coran had deemed ‘the recording room,’ talking about himself. Something he’d never been particularly good at.

“Hey, man, take it easy,” Lance said. “No need to cry over it.”

“I’m not,” Keith said, confused.

Lance groaned again. “It was a joke.”

Of course it was a joke. Lance always made jokes. And they always flew right over Keith’s head.

“I’m not going to cry,” he said in frustration, after the door to the recording room had slid shut behind him. He sat down. Took a deep breath. Turned on the camera.

“I’m Keith, the pilot of the black lion…what should I say?” he asked. “I’m a paladin. I fly the black lion. I-I said that already, see that’s why I’m bad at this. What else am I supposed to tell you? Okay, um, I guess I’m part Galra…”

After stammering through an introduction, finding words seemed a little easier. Whenever they visited planets, people always seemed most interested—or disgusted—to learn about his heritage, so he opted to talk about that for a little while, pulling out his knife to try and bring up the memories of the trials. Then he remembered what Shiro had said about sensitive information. Maybe talking about the Blade’s secrets wasn’t such a good idea.

Keith paused, staring down at the knife, at his reflection in the shiny, rare metal. “I guess being part Galra is a big deal. Might explain why I was never really good at…connecting with people.” He thought back to the events on Arus, how Lance had tried to teach him some sort of team chant. He still thought it was dumb, not as dumb as this video, but still dumb enough. He said as much, and before he realized what he was doing, his face was heating up and he was raising his voice in anger. Why did he have to get angry so easily?

“I am so sorry,” Keith said, remembering all their allies would be watching this. He leaned back, closed his eyes to calm down. “I am so sorry, I guess…I have a bit of a temper, so…”

Words were becoming hard again. Sticking to his heritage, Keith realized, might also not be the best idea. He didn’t know enough to talk about it with the ease he’d like. And not knowing was making him angry. Not knowing where he came from. Not knowing where his mom went. Not knowing why she left.

Words were hard, but for some reason Keith couldn’t seem to make them stop coming out his mouth. Emotions were rushing out, and he couldn’t keep them bottled up anymore, but this wasn’t the time or place. There was never a time or place for the leader of Voltron to break down.

Breathing was getting hard, too. He felt tears coming, sniffled once, and frantically thought of a way to cover this up. But it was too late. He’d spilled his guts and now everyone was going to know, the team was going to know, the allied planets would know, the universe would know that Keith Kogane was just some scared little kid lost in space.

“I'm—I’m outta here! Get me outta here,” he muttered, getting to his feet. “I'm—I’m outta here!”

He couldn’t do it. He couldn’t pilot Black, he couldn’t lead Voltron, even with Shiro back, hell, he couldn’t even make a damn vlog, whatever the hell that was. It was frustration more than anything that made him yell, “I said I wouldn’t cry!”

Keith stalked out of the recording room, the colours of the hallway swirling together as tears blurred his vision. It occurred to him that he’d left the camera on, but he didn’t care. He just needed to be alone. He was already alone. He was always alone. He was a loner. Right now, he needed to be alone somewhere safe from discovery.

He stumbled into his bedroom. He was dizzy, he couldn’t walk straight, he couldn’t think straight. He didn’t want to be here. He didn’t want to be a leader. He didn’t want to be a paladin. He just wanted to be home, alone in his cozy little desert shack, back when he liked being alone, when it was easy to pretend he didn’t care about his parents, when he had no idea that he was an alien.

Keith was really crying now, hot, messy tears dripping down his face. The armor that encased his shaking body was too tight, too constricting. He fumbled to get it off, piece by piece, fingers slipping over the smooth surface as he trembled with sobs, until eventually he gave up and sank to the floor. He was all alone. Nobody wanted him. Nobody cared. Why would they? All he’d ever done was push them away.

He wasn’t sure how long he stayed like that, crouched in the middle of his room with his head in his hands. Surely there were better things he could be doing right now. Like trying to find Lotor. Or training. He could’ve taken down the gladiator at least twice by now.

The sound of the door sliding open was barely audible. Just a gentle whoosh, a whoosh Keith had heard many times before. He didn’t pay it any attention, even as someone walked into the room and knelt beside him. He felt a hand on his back, rubbing up and down, slow and gentle, heard soft words being murmured in his ear. He tried to focus on that.

“Hey, Keith. Hey, it’s okay. Shhh, it’s okay, Keith, you’re alright.”

Keith swallowed hard and steeled himself to meet the kind pair of blue eyes that looked down at him.

“L-Lance?”

“Yeah, buddy, it’s me,” Lance smiled worriedly. He brushed tear-soaked bangs from Keith’s face. “Can you tell me what’s wrong?”

“I—” Keith froze. That was just the problem. He could never bring himself to open up. He never told anybody what was wrong. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t seem to take down all the walls he’d spent years putting up.

“It’s okay,” Lance soothed. “You can talk to me.”

“No, I can’t!” Keith cried, much louder than he’d meant to. Lance flinched. “Can’t you see that I can’t talk to you? I can’t talk to anybody! I’m no good at it. I can’t connect with people, I can’t open up. Nobody likes me, and I try so hard, but I can’t make people like me because I always push them away and I don’t mean to but it just happens because I don’t know how to do it any different and then I’m all alone but I don’t want to be alone anymore but I can't…I just…I can’t.”

“Keith.” Lance’s strong, steady hands found Keith’s shoulders. His voice was soft, caring. “What are you talking about, man? You’re not alone. I’m right here. I’m always here for you.”

Keith wiped viciously at the tears stained on his cheeks. He didn’t say anything. He didn’t know what to say.

“Let’s get off the floor, huh?” Lance suggested. Keith nodded. Lance guided him to his feet and helped him take off the pieces of armor he’d missed. Keith tried to do it on his own, but he felt so clumsy and useless he ended up just standing there while Lance reduced him to the black bodysuit that was underneath all their armor.

Lance sat them both down on the edge of the bed, keeping an arm around Keith’s shoulders. He was still warm and a little bit sweaty from training, but Keith didn’t care. It felt good, Keith realized. It felt good to be close to someone and have them look out for you.

“We all care about you, Keith,” Lance said. “You do know that, right?”

“I…” Keith paused, “don’t know.”

“Well, we do. All of us. And yeah, okay, I guess your people skills could use a little work, but we know you’re trying. You’re part of the team, Keith. You’re family.” Lance squeezed his shoulder, smiling. Keith looked at him uncertainly. “What is it?” Lance asked.

“I’ve never had that before,” Keith admitted.

“You’d better get used to it,” Lance chimed. “Because we’re not going anywhere. We love you, man.”

“I love you too,” Keith managed. He was tearing up again. Lance pulled him in for a hug, and Keith went with his instinct to hug him back. Things weren’t great, but with Lance here, they were better. Speaking of which…

“How did you know to come find me?” Keith asked.

Lance ducked his head. “I, uh, kinda saw your vlog. You left the camera running.”

“The vlog,” Keith moaned. “I don’t know what I was thinking, saying all that stuff. And now the universe is going to see it. What do I do, Lance?”

“Don’t worry about it. It hasn’t been sent anywhere yet, and I’ll bet there’s a way we can delete it. And we could make a new one.”

“I don’t think my second time around will be any better,” Keith frowned.

“We’ll do it together,” Lance grinned. “We’ll call it ‘Get to Know the Two Bravest Paladins of Voltron!’ Razzle dazzle, right?”

“Yeah,” Keith chuckled. “Razzle dazzle.”

anonymous asked:

hey! i've been seeing conflicting accounts about this and i wanted to ask you how you felt because i'm on the fence. often times people will say noctluna doesn't make sense cause they don't really know each other. they've been exchanging letters for years but they haven't even been in the same room for that same amount of time. but since i've never been in a relationship it has me thinking: were their exchanges "enough" i guess? can you fall in love with a penpal? (sorry for this rambly msg!!)

I’ve actually talked about this in a few different posts, but it really pisses me off when people say it isn’t possible (and it makes me even more peeved when people say she knows someone better that she only knew for a day than her 12-years-and-counting love and penpal)

One thing I said in probably my first meta post on it is that I do very much wonder about the demographics on those who do and don’t ship it. There’s overlap, ofc, there always is, but I wonder about the biggest numbers, y’know?

Most of the people I’ve seen who ship it are in committed relationships that have been ongoing for years. I’m 30 and married and a parent. My husband and I have been together for 12 years, married for 9.

Another thing I’ve seen is people taking the game context of the notebook and applying that to their real life use of it, which is dumb af. I understand the “It should have been in the game!” complaints, but to outright ignore Brotherhood showing us clearly that that the notebook included long letters and very personal info………. *sigh*

The notebook has a lot in it. The game may not have made that as clear, but it has been made very clear in canon through Brotherhood.

But even then, the descriptions on the notebook do make it clear. The 1~5 affection point description is that it contains 12 years worth of memories. The 6 point description tells you how the last page is stained in tears. The no affection description (in JP at least) is even tragic as well, telling you that an answer will no longer come.

Maybe they didn’t show us the entries in the game, but they did make it obvious, if you bothered to pay attention.

I also wrote another post at some point where I talked about falling in love with pen pals!! In it, I talked about when I was a kid in elementary school, we got assigned pen pals. Before we started writing our letters, we talked a lot about pen pals in general. We were told of lasting friendships and love that have come out of it, we were told how it can be so freeing to share things with someone like that, we were told so much. Even here in America, once upon a time, pen pals were a romantic thing.

That’s not so much the case anymore here.

But it is in Japan.

They even have a specific word for sharing a notebook. What Luna and Noctis did is a thing, and to completely hate on them is also to ignore the social differences.

It’s fine if it doesn’t do it for you.

I can even agree that I do wish that certain things had been made more clear.

But theirs is a very real romance. It isn’t in your face, and that’s what I love about it. It already developed, so what we see isn’t the formation of that love, it’s seeing that love that already exists and binds these two.

Also:

True love isn’t that person being the only thing you think and talk about - That’s obsession.

True love isn’t dependent on constant physical interaction - That’s an insult to all long distance relationships, for starters.

True love is support. True love is lasting. True love is a quiet passion burning under the surface. True love is seen in the actions more than it is spoken of.

True love is family, and family is acceptance, belonging, trust.

It’s home.

Stydia prompt where Stiles is secretly makes copies of all Lydia's keys, but she catches him. They are dating.

THIS IS SUCH A CUTE PROMPT. Also I included a little Scott for extra goodness!! Hope you enjoy :)

Stiles has been acting peculiar recently, at least more strange than his normal self. Lydia first noticed this when the two of them were at her house together, getting ready to watch a movie. While Lydia set up the movie, Stiles was in charge of getting the snacks. It had been nearly ten minutes, and he still had yet to come out. Of course, after hearing a prodigious thump, she assumed the worst, rushing into the kitchen with her bare feet slipping across the tile.

a/n: Man, I’m really sorry that I haven’t updated in months. I’ve been in a slump, and with college around the corner, things have been super hectic  (◕︵◕) 

But anyway, I do hope you guys like this piece! Since I haven’t written in a while, I might be rusty, but thanks for sticking with me this long  (●´ω`●) ! You guys are great :D

Soryu’s headcanon was inspired by this piece by @otomeden. Please check out her stuff. They’re great!  ♥‿♥


Eisuke:

          Eisuke was not amused.

          What started out as a simple outing to his private beach became a full-blown volleyball game, courtesy of Baba. His childish competitive streak got himself dragged into Baba’s stupid idea of a 3-on-3 match. The worst part about all this was that his team was losing, and Eisuke Ichinomiya never loses. He, Baba, and Ota have already lost two consecutive rounds.

          Still, what really got on Eisuke’s nerves was the fact that she and Soryu were an abnormally great team—no, scratch that—they were a deadly duo hell-bent on victory.

My hoodie - phan
  • Yoyoyo time to write a proper fanfic.
  • Prompt: Dan starts walking around in his boxers and hoodie and Phil is finding it hard to cope.
  • Yo I'm bad at writing leave me alone
  • ______________________________________
  • I threw myself down onto my bed with a thud. Sweat was dripping down my forehead from my damp, black hair. The heat was really getting to me. Really. And I needed some sort of distraction. My sweetly hands came down the grip to hem of my shirt. I lifted it up, over my head and let it drop onto the floor.  I could feel a light breeze against my chest. Cooling me in the slightest.
  •   The forecast had said it would be 26°c today but it ended up with an astonishing 36°c and, quite frankly, I didn't know how I was going to cope with this heat. Especially since I've been so busy with my roommate, Dan.
  • You see, when I was a teen. I'd use to just strip down into my underwear, sometimes less, and just lock myself in my room where I can cool down. Or wank if I couldn't cool down. It took my mind off it. But recently. With me and Dan having so much on my, our, plate. I haven't been able to have a good 10 minutes in my own time to wank in the day. Because when it's night it's considerably cooler so there's no point in doing it anymore.
  • I took a moment to listen. I couldn't hear Dan anywhere in the house and if he was he wasn't doing anything that involved moving so I supposed I would have a good while to myself to "take my mind off the heat".
  • I slipped my hands down into the front of my skinny jeans. Thumbing with the button and the zip until eventually I had them undone. I ran my hands from my  lower stomach and round to my hips where I shimmied my Jeans and boxers down to the middle thigh's. Exposing my semi hard member.
  • I racked my brain for some wank material. Something to get me really going since I didn't know exactly how long I'd have. Maybe 10 minutes maybe 2 hours. You never know. It's not like I could ask him either, he'd immediately want to find out why. Which would be awkward.
  •   I continued to rack my brain for  a Something to wank to no matter how hard I tried I had no success. Buffy? Nah I want a man right now. Tom Holland? Nah. Dan Howell? He's my roommate!
  • But he did look sinfully good today.
  • He'd been lounging around in some tiny Calvin Klein boxers and my York university hoodie all day. Strangely, even though he claimed it was because it was warm I still had my doubts. Just, the way he swayed his hips extra sexually when the walked and how he wanted cuddles a lot more than he used to. Where'd he'd also push his barely clothed butt against me as we did so.
  •   Maybe it was my mind overreacting. Or maybe it was because he was actually doing it to get my attention.
  • Probably not. But he did look good I just admit.
  • Undoubtedly, he was sexy. And everyone knew it. With his deep set eyes and big thigh's. No wonder all the drunk men in the pub always tried to take a bite out of him. Including me if I had enough pints. Not only that. But his personality was amazing! Funny,  kind, #relatable. I loved everything about him. I continued my thoughts about my sexy roommate while my hands made light work teasing around the area till my cock stood at attention against my lower stomach and my breathing became ragged. Dan being the reason why.
  • My hand gripped it at the base before I started some slow, tight thrusts. My breathing started picking up a pace as i did. Quick, shallow breaths kept escaping though my parted lips as my thrusts sped up. Soon I started lifting my hips up to meet my hand in the middle. The feeling becoming addicting.
  •   "Fu- yes Dan. You regret them little boxers now don't ya?"
  •   I moaned out under my breath as a felt myself coming closer to the edge. I always got like that when I got closer to Cumming. It was just a kink of mine.
  • "Phil can you play wit- JESUS SORRY!"
  • My hand shot away from my rock hard member and my eyes darted to the door where a very red and sweaty Dan stood.
  • "Jesus!"
  • exclaimed. My hands coming down to cover my modestly. Even the slightest touch making me want to Moana since I was so close to the edge.
  •   "Sorry..."
  •   Dan muttered out nervously. Shifting his body from foot to foot to avoid looking at my directly.
  •   I tried to tug the blankets up around over me but I was already sat atop of half the blankets do it barely covered my cock.  My face burned bright pink as I stared directly at Dan. Thinking of something to say desperately.
  •   "Sorry. It's not what it looks like."
  •   I bursted out quickly. Immediately regretting it as soon as the words left my lips. This was embarrassing, obviously. Nothing short of it.
  •   "Ah, I'll go to the living room."
  •   Dan mumbled out before he slipped away from view. Closing the door as he did so. Leaving me to let the checkered blackers drop and feel embarrassed.
  •   Why did I think this was a good idea?
  • ______________________________________
  •   Hours had passed since the incident and I still remained in my room. Constantly pacing around my room going over and over the previous events.  The thoughts of the intense heat completely leaving my mind. I could barely feel it at this moment.
  •   Next time we talk it's going to be so fucking awkward. Why did I do that?! I could have waited till fucking night time. Or when Dan was having a fucking nap! Or even done it anyway and just not of fucking moaned Dan's name!
  •   I wonder if he even heard that.
  •   He could have missed it. I guess I'll find out la-
  •   "DINNER!"
  •   well I guess now.
  •   "COMING."
  •   I left my room and jogged down stairs to the living room where two plates of stir-fry sat on the table. One in front of an obviously anxious Dan.
  •   "Hey. We didn't have the things to make burritos so we're having stir fry."
  •   Dan murmured out. After had I sat down across the table. He was still wearing just the boxers and my hoodie but the jumper was so low I couldn't even see the boxers.
  •   "Oh, that's fine."
  •   I said as we began to tuck into the meal before falling into an uncomfortable silence as we next Thought of what to say. Last time one of us caught the other wanking was over a year ago when I walked in, having come home early from Florida, to Dan fingering himself in his room. 
  •   Afterwards I hadn't been nearly as awkward as this. I just apologized for not knocking and then we made a few jokes and forgot about it. If it weren't for me getting off to it later (luckily not getting caught).
  •   Really the moral of this story is that I need to stop finding my roommate sexy.
  •   I should just apologize, honestly. It worked last time so I suppose I should just hope he hasn't heard his name on my lips as I got off and hope it'll just be like when I walked in on Dan.
  •   "Dan, I'm sorry. About before. I really should of locked the door or Something. Maybe had waited till you had left the house o-."
  •   "It's ok Phil, really. But I need to ask..."
  •   Dan trailed off. Ask me what?
  •   "Ask what bub?"
  •   I asked.
  •   "Why did you say my name?"
  •   He said quietly. Peeking up at me through his eye lashes. He looked so strangely Adorable while asking such a personal question.
  •   "Uhh, I- well. I... don't know... Wait! I wasn't moaning your name! It was a different Dan!"
  •   I managed to get out after desperately searching for an excuse. Coming up with a shitty one in the end.
  •   "Oh. Well why did you talk about my little boxers? Does the other Dan wear them?"
  •   Dan stood up and pulled his jumper further down his legs before he picked up both of our plates. Moving then into the living room. Presumably to watch a film while we eat so it's less embarrassing. I trailed close behind while I tried once again to make an excuse.
  •   "I don't kno- no. He doesn't."
  •   I murmured out. This shit wasn't working at all so I might as well abort mission and come clean.
  •   "Then who where you moaning about?"
  •   Dan asked rather innocently. Crawling closer to me between my slightly spread legs and cuddling into my chest. Probably thinking the coast was clear and it wasn't about him.
  • This is going to ruin that.
  •   "You, Hun."
  •   I said as calmly as I could. Adding the nick name in hopes of making it less awkward. Seemingly it worked as as soon as the words left my lips Dan's face changed to an expression I couldn't quite place. Happiness? Lust? Love?
  •   I didn't know really.
  •   "So do you like my little boxers then?"
  •   Dan asked quietly while shuffling upwards on my chest so that his head was tucked against my neck. I picked up the TV remote on the arm of the couch and started scrolling through the channels in an attempt to distract myself from the warm breath on my neck.
  •   "Well, they are awfully short, Dan."
  •   I replied as I trailed my hands up his tanned thigh's to his boxers to prove my point.
  •     Only, my hands didn't touch his boxers. It touched Something lacy. Dan wiggled under my touch but he didn't move away. If anything he pushed his cute bum closer. Somewhat giving me a better feel.
  •   "What are these?"
  •   I asked as I lifted my head in attempt to see what it was. Failing miserably. Instead I stayed to feeling them to find out what it was and waited for Dan to tell me.
  •   "Underwear."
  •   Dan said simply.
  •   "What type though? They're lacy."
  •   "Girly ones."
  •   Dan murmured quietly. His face going a little pink from embarrassment. My hands stilled immediately on his butt.
  •   HE WAS WEARING FUCKING PANTIES!
  •   Ok. Wearing his underwear around the house is one thing. Wearing fucking panties was another thing! If I could hardly handle the boy in underwear I definitely can't handle him in these!
  •   "Oh. Baby. Like panties?"
  •   "Yeah... You didn't like my boxers so I wore these."
  •   Dan snuggled into my neck more as he spoke moving his legs so the they where either side of my legs. Letting my hand roam more freely over the soft lace.
  •   Was he coming on to me? If he was I have no complaint but I don't want to just flirt with him when he doesn't want to because that would make things awkward.
  •   "Well. I do like them baby."
  • I said as I brought one hand to hold his upper thigh. The other one moving to become stationary on his lower back. The arch of it bringing dirty thoughts into my mind.
  • Oh just imagine for his back would arch if I bent him over this couch and fucked him. Delishous moans would escape from his beautiful lips as he begged for more.
  • I gently lifted my hand from his thigh. Holding my breath as I prepared to do something risky.
  • "In what way do yo- ah fuck!"
  • My hand came down on his perked butt. Resulting in a loud slapping sound echoing around the living room and a pained moan escaping from his parted lips.
  • "Again."
  • He murmured out. His cheek still tucked into my neck.
  • "Well you have been a bad boy baby. How about you go get ready in your bedroom, I want you in nothing but those panties baby. Then I'll punish you for getting me all hot and bothered with them panties."
  • Part one?
I don't even know your name.
  • *based off the song by Shawn Mendes*
  • *I kinda cringe at this but it's worth a shot*
  • I saw you standing there, My mind was taken over by your brown eyes that somehow shined in the dim room.
  • I dont know if I was drunk or not, I didn't remember much from that day.
  • It was long before I saw you sit down. Alone.
  • I would have walked up to You, Would have talked to you, I would have done anything to see them eyes again.
  • But I was pulled back by Pj, He asked what drink i wanted, I replied to him quickly without thinking.
  • As I turned around you weren't on the sofa any more, I searched the room for you, only to see you beside Me, ordering from the bartender.
  • _______
  • I said hi and you replied with a slightly drunk smile, But I could tell it was genuine.
  • "Hey", You said, taking a sip of your drink.
  • "How are You?", I asked, trying to make small talk.
  • "I'm good now that I have someone to talk to", You smiled.
  • I remember, we talked for a few hours, I made a stupid joke and you laughed at it, Your smile was somehow beautiful.
  • We ordered more drinks, both of us becoming even more intoxicated.
  • You led me to the bathroom, your hand in mine.
  • You pinned me against the wall, Gently somehow, You were so gentle with everything you did, wether that was with the way you spoke or the way you touched Me, You were always so gentle.
  • You had your lips against mine, my hands tugging at your shirt.
  • It was a drunken mess but it felt right, I knew I wouldn t regret it.
  • We didn't take it far, we both knew that was going too fast.
  • I led you away, we smiled at eachother, My head hurt from the amount of alcohol I had consumed but it didnt matter when you smiled at me and the pain was gone.
  • We saw a group of people, you looked like you were trying to hide from Them, they had cameras, I understood.
  • But of course they saw you, we both saw them walk up to us and you quickly scribbled on a piece of paper, I took it without looking at it.
  • And then you were gone, Taken with the crowd.
  • _________
  • Turns out you were a celebrity I had never heard of.
  • I walked- no, I staggered home and almost immediately collapsed on my bed, The alcohol I had drunk that night was too much.
  • I forgot to check that piece of paper.
  • I think I dreamt about You, I don't remember properly.
  • I only remember waking up, In the dream, I only saw a tall silhouette, somehow the dark eyes glowed and it's the only feature i could see.
  • Nothing happened, I was propped on my elbows, just watching the shadows and it was doing the same.
  • Then I woke up.
  • Everything was so quiet and lifeless, my head hurt so much and my throat was dry, I went to the kitchen and downed a few pain killers with water.
  • I remember staggering to the kitchen and putting my clothes into the washing machine, a piece of paper fell out of the pocket of my jeans, I checked it and saw a number written messily on it.
  • Someone picked up the call on the third ring.
  • "Hello?", They said, they're voice hoarse.
  • "Who is this?"
  • "You called Me.."
  • "I found your number on a piece of paper in my jeans"
  • "Ah, You", I could hear your grin, "How are You?"
  • "You still haven't told me your name"
  • "That doesn't matter right now"
  • "But-"
  • "We made out last night"
  • "Oh...um"
  • "Don't worry, It was great"
  • _____
  • You were always on my mind, I couldn't  sleep properly, couldn't eat, I could barely form a sentence.
  • It had it been a few days, I hadn t called you, I was too shy.
  • I got through work somehow, altough I was constantly drawing you on my notebook, I would get weird looks from my co-workers but I didn't really care, How could I care about other people when you were on my mind?
  • "Why do you keep drawing that one random person?", Pj asked as he say down to eat lunch with Me, of course I left my sandwich untouched.
  • "Um-I, No reason, I just like drawing it", I spluttered, stuffing my notebook into my briefcase and bending the pages slightly.
  • "You know, He looked a bit like someone I keep seeing in magazines", Pj told me.
  • I knew he was talking about you, "W-what's his name?", I asked, desperate to know who you were.
  • "I don't know, I just keep seeing him"
  • I sighed without replying.
  • "What?"
  • "Nothing", I said, getting up and leaving.
  • I took my phone out of my pocket and picked the contact I had saved as 'nameless'.
  • _______
  • "Hey, you", You said down the phone, it made me blush, I'll admit that.
  • "Hi, Can you please tell me your name?"
  • "Why would you want to know my name? Names are just sounds we use to label ourselves"
  • "Shut up, you dork", I laughed, I could hear you laughing to.
  • "I dont know your name either actually"
  • "You mean the sound used to label me?", I smirked.
  • "Yes, I dont know the sound that is used to label you"
  • "That sound is Phil"
  • "Nice sound"
  • "Thank you, altough, you should probably thank my parents"
  • "Ah, Yes, the parents, when do I meet them?"
  • "After you tell me your name.....and buy me dinner"
  • "I'll have to wait then"
  • "Why wont you tell me your name?"
  • "I don't know, it's fun to know you're thinking about me"
  • "Seriously?"
  • "Yeah, Its cute"
  • "Shut up!", I laugh down the phone.
  • "Make me"
  • "I will if we meet up"
  • "Sounds like a plan"
  • You told me to meet you at the coffee shop that was just around the corner from me.
  • It wasn't long until you had your lips against mine and my hands travelling up to your hair.
  • The coffee shop was luckily empty, apart from the woman behind the bar that was listening to music through her headphones and couldn't care less that we were making out in the corner.
  • I pushed you away, "I-I still dont know your name", I muttered, Looking into your lustful eyes.
  • You held a finger to my lips, "soon", You whispered softly.
  • _______
  • The morning after tore me apart, The daily newspaper was delivered, I looked through it and suddenly stopped, dropping the paper immediately, Running into my room and grabbing my phone, I was reading the words over and over, They were imprinted into my mind:
  • Dan Howell caught making out in corner of local coffee shop with mystery man.
  • Followed by a picture of us on the green armchair that I remembered as a place of happiness.
  • I didn't even think this sort of stuff would be printed into a newspaper, It wasn't news-worthy.
  • I called you, You answered, The fist thing you said to me was "I'm sorry", Followed by a small sob.
  • "I-Dan.."
  • "Well now you know my name"
  • "Yeah"
  • "I'm sorry", You said again.
  • "Its-It's okay", I replied.
  • "Really?"
  • "Yeah, Dan, It isn't your fault"
  • "Thank you so much"
  • "Its no proble-", I heard shouting coming from your end of the line.
  • I could only hear a few "Dan Howell!"'s and one person shouted, "Who was that man?!"
  • "Shit, They found out where I live"
  • "Dan?"
  • "Ive gotta go"
  • "Dan?", The line went dead.
  • I didn't hear back from you since.
  • ______
  • I hadn t heard from you in at least a week, your calls went voicemail, you didn't reply to my messages.
  • I searched your name, It said you were some sort of ex-band member.
  • It made sense.
  • I had no idea where to start looking, I didn't know where to go, who to talk to.
  • I called again, It went to voicemail, again.
  • I spent hours everyday, just wandering up streets, Looking  for any sign of you, I found nothing.
  • I searched through magazines, nothing.

  • ____
  • I remember when I found you, I should have been happy but you were shaking, You were crying, you were curled into a ball in the corner of your living room, your for head resting on your knees.
  • You called me, told me the address, I got in the back, past the paparazzi, You told me you couldn't take it anymore, you wanted to be normal, you did want people chasing you around with cameras, making everthing you do public.
  • And I understood.
  • I sat down next to you and wrapped my arms around you, I felt your body relax and I laid your head on my lap, stroking your hair in a comforting manner.
  • You were breaking and I was trying to fix you, bit by bit.
  • It was slow, but it worked.
  • I snuk you through the back of your house, you had a small bag of only important belongings, I held your hand, Running my thumb over he back of it.
  • We walked back to my flat, I let you sleep, you needed it, I saw the bags under your eyes and the way your hands shook slightly.
  • I got in bed beside you and you immediately wrapped your arms and legs around me and nuzzled your head into my chest.
  • I hugged you back, It was comforting for the both of us.
  • "Thank you", I heard you whisper, And you hugged me a little tighter, I stoked your hair.

  • Garrett: /Former/ slave. He belongs to no one
  • Dorian: Ooh, touchy
  • ---
  • Dorian: Have I offended you?
  • Garrett: What makes you think I'm offended?
  • Dorian: Well in Varric's book he writes you as an understanding paragon of goodness, and yet whenever I'm within ten feet you start scowling
  • Garrett: I... didn't realise. I apologise
  • Dorian: Oh no need. In fact, it makes you one of the friendliest southerners I've met so far!
  • ---
  • Dorian: So-
  • Garrett: Not now
  • Dorian: I haven't even said anything
  • Garrett: I'm not up for talking at the moment. Please, just not now
  • Varric: Leave him alone, Sparkler. Everyone has their days
  • ---
  • Garrett: So you actually read Varric's books then?
  • Dorian: Not all of them. I tried reading that romance, Swords and Shields, per Cassandra's recommendation. I felt my IQ drop after the first sentence
  • Garrett: The Seeker recommended it? Varric will have a field day with that
  • Dorian: Well would you look at that? A smile! I feel blessed
  • Garrett: *sighs* And now you've ruined it
  • ---
  • Dorian: So... you're interested in men, are you?
  • Garrett: And married
  • Dorian: Well I noticed /that/. You and Fenris can barely keep your hands off of each other. I was just wondering...
  • Garrett: What?
  • Dorian: Never mind. Let's go back to you scowling at me whenever I walked into the room, that was much more comfortable
  • ---
  • (After Dorian's personal quest)
  • Garrett: The other day, when you brought up my preference for men, were you going to ask about my father when he found out?
  • Dorian: Ah, I've been had, have I?
  • Garrett: It would seem so. Do you still want to know?
  • Dorian: So long as it doesn't end with 'and then he decided to try a blood ritual to make me acceptable'
  • Garrett: Nothing like that. I was about seventeen when I realised, nineteen when I finally told him. It wasn't easy. I was terrified actually
  • Dorian: You were scared he wouldn't approve. I understand. What did he do, when you told him?
  • Garrett: He and my mother sat there and they listened. And when it was done, they just hugged me, told me they loved me, and that was it
  • Dorian: I see. You were lucky to have parents so ready to accept you as you were
  • Garrett: I was. And maybe you might be too, if your father's serious about making amends
  • Dorian: Maybe. I'd like to think he is
  • ---
  • Dorian: So your brother is a Grey Warden?
  • Garrett: He is. My fault, I'm afraid
  • Dorian: How so? I take it you didn't make him do it on a dare?
  • Garrett: I let him have his way. I let him go on that damned Deep Roads Expedition because he'd have thrown a fit over it otherwise
  • Dorian: He caught the Blight, I take it?
  • Garrett: Yes. And if not for Anders knowing where to find Grey Wardens, he would have died
  • Dorian: That hardly makes it your fault. Sounds more like rotten luck to me
  • Garrett: If I'd just made him stay at home-
  • Dorian: He'd have thrown a fit and done something equally stupid to spite you, I'm sure
  • Carver: I'm standing right here you know
  • Dorian: Oh I'm well aware
  • ---
  • Dorian: You know I always thought that Varric made that up
  • Garrett: *groans* Dare I even ask...
  • Dorian: You'd really never kissed anyone before Fenris? And he was your first time too? My, how romantic
  • Garrett: I am going to kill Varric...
  • Dorian: And here I thought we were past the 'you scowling at my mere presence' stage
  • ---
  • Garrett: So, you and Farier?
  • Dorian: Ah, you are curious? Well, I do love talking about me, so there's no harm in indulging you
  • Garrett: *chuckles* How on earth does he put up with you?
  • Farier: Well see, he does this thing with his tongue where he-
  • Dorian: Amatus!
  • Farier: *smugly* What? You use your tongue to talk, don't you?
  • Dorian: Oh, you little-!
  • Garrett: *laughs*
  • ---
  • Dorian: So... open to a friendly wager, Garrett?
  • Garrett: Hardly. The last time I wagered anything, it involved Isabela winning my clothes at cards and me running home with a bucket to cover my privates
  • Dorian: *laughs* Quite the image! Now that's a story I have to hear
  • Varric: I'll tell you all about it back at camp, Sparkler
  • Marian: You can see it first hand if you get him drunk enough
  • Dorian: And now I have my next endeavour all planned out
  • Garrett: Maker, no. Just no
  • ---
  • Garrett: So, out of curiosity, what did you want to wager on?
  • Dorian: Interested are we?
  • Garrett: Hardly, just curious as to what you were going to propose
  • Dorian: Well it's not fun if we don't wager. Varric put in for ten royals already on the odds of three-to-one
  • Garrett: In favour of what?
  • Dorian: I'm only telling those who are betting
  • ---
  • Garrett: Fine, just tell me what we're betting on
  • Dorian: Aha! Knew your curiosity would win out. We're betting on our dear Inquisitor's chances for success
  • Garrett: You're... betting on whether or not she'll die? That's rather morbid
  • Dorian: Not dying per say, though I suppose that will be the outcome if Corypheus isn't stopped. So, your wager?
  • Garrett: Not my trousers, that's for damn sure
  • Dorian: *laughs* Blast, and to think I could have owned the trousers of the Champion of Kirkwall!
  • Sera: I could pants him for you!
  • Garrett: Don't even think about it
  • Sera: *cackles* Too late!
  • Garrett: She's joking... Right?
  • Dorian: My dear Garrett, I'd watch myself from now on if I were you
  • ---
  • Dorian: So I sated your curiosity on our bet, now sate mine. Why /were/ you always scowling at me?
  • Garrett: I didn't even realise I was doing it before you pointed it out
  • Dorian: Nonsense, there must have been a reason. I /did/ hear you duelled Danarius and had a part in his death
  • Garrett: True. And I still have the scars to prove it
  • Dorian: So is it because I was nearly a magister? I take it that it's not because I'm from Tevinter, considering your choice in marital partner
  • Garrett: I... I don't know
  • Dorian: Ah, perhaps you feared I would harm Fenris in some way? I imagine he paints quite a picture of the Imperium
  • Garrett: Just... stop. I don't want to talk about this anymore
  • Dorian: Very well. Shall we talk about me instead? I do love that topic
  • ---
  • Dorian: Are they always that loud?
  • Garrett: Try sleeping next door to them. I think they do it on purpose
  • Dorian: Have you ever tried-?
  • Garrett: Yes, and it doesn't work. Trust me
  • Dorian: You must have gotten back at them somehow. I doubt Fenris would let it go
  • Garrett: *smugly* Well we did book them for the Bad Girl Special at the Blooming Rose once
  • Dorian: What-?
  • Marian: I still hate you for that
  • Garrett: I know. And it was worth it
  • ---
  • Dorian: You... really remember nothing?
  • Garrett: Not really. Only what I've been told since waking up
  • Dorian: Hm. When the Nightmare stole Lyris' memories, it only took her memories of the Conclave... Perhaps it was your extended contact with the demon that did it
  • Garrett: Do you think it will come back?
  • Dorian: I don't know. But if there is a chance, I am happy to help however I can
  • Garrett: Thank you Dorian
  • Dorian: Hmph, of course it took a memory wipe for you to say that to me
  • ---
  • Dorian: Lothering?
  • Garrett: Darkspawn
  • Dorian: Cheery. Kirkwall?
  • Garrett: Home
  • Dorian: Fenris?
  • Garrett: Husband
  • Dorian: Are you saying that because you know it, or because you feel it?
  • Garrett: ...both
  • Dorian: Hm... Ah. Dorian?
  • Garrett: *smugly* Scowling
  • Dorian: Aha, you /are/ starting to remember properly now, aren't you?
  • ---
  • Garrett: Thank you Dorian
  • Dorian: Well, I won't be one to refuse thanks but I usually like to know what I'm being thanked for
  • Garrett: For helping me remember. I was a bit of an arse to you in the beginning, wasn't I?
  • Dorian: Well you didn't spit when we met. It's more than I can say for the blacksmith
  • Garrett: *sighs* And there goes the moment...
  • ---
  • Garrett: So, Dorian...
  • Dorian: Ah, are we back to scowling now I am to be a true Magister? Don't worry, I won't hold it against you. I've even been practicing my maniacal laugh
  • Garrett: I just wanted to offer my sympathies for your father's death. I know how hard it is to lose a parent
  • Dorian: *sympathetically* Or two, in your case. I appreciate the sentiment, though I'd rather not speak at length about it
  • Garrett: Of course. Have you at least had your grapes peeled for you since being back in Tevinter?
  • Dorian: *laughs* No, but it is at the top of my list when I take my seat in the Magesterium. Along with trying to drag the Imperium back out of the muck, though that's a slightly more long term goal I'm afraid
  • Garrett: I'd heard a few rumours about that. You really think you can do it?
  • Dorian: Maybe, maybe not. But if I don't try, who will?
  • Garrett: True enough. If you ever need anything...
  • Dorian: Oh perish the thought. I believe you've been through enough, my friend. Only fate would be unkind enough to saddle you with yet more trouble after all of this

Strawberry Kisses

So I have written this fic for billyiscoolerthanyou because she won my little contest from a while ago!

Her prompt was: Dan feels depressed and has an eating disorder and Phil finds out. (Ending will be cute) ———————————— One… two… three… four… Dan was counting the little leaves he plucked off the strawberries, one by one. It was a hypnotizing occupation, actually. The smell seemed more amazing than ever before. Five… six… seven… ‘Dan?’ Phil’s voice went through his whole body and full of shock he dropped the strawberry on the ground. Quickly he picked it upagain, but didn’t eat it. He hadn’t even heard Phil coming in. 'Phil, what’s up?’ 'Why have you been sitting here for twenty minutes, looking at that strawberry?’ 'Excuse me!? I have eaten them, too, weirdo.’ That was a lie, and he felt Phil knew.  'Then why are there no less strawberries on the plate?’ Phil spoke, pointing at the plate on their living room table. 'I bought more this morning and just put them on the plate, too. It looks so ugly when the plate’s only half full, that’s the reason.’ 'Oh, okay.’ Phil sighed. 'I’m unexpectedly going to eat in town with Louise now, do you feel like coming with us?’ 'Nah, sorry man, already got plans.’ 'With who?’ It was quiet for a moment. 'The internet, very romantic,’ Dan tried to joke it off. 'That’s stupid. You haven’t seen friends like Louise for so long! Well, anyway, if you feel like coming, we’re at the Cat Café.’ Phil went to leave but just before the door he stopped and turned around. 'Dan, please eat that freaking strawberry, you’ve been holding that for minutes now.’ And with that, he left. Dan didn’t eat the strawberry. —– Fuck, he’d lost count. Where was he? Eighty-five? He’d probably been doing this too long. He picked up the strawberries with their plucked leaves and wrapped them in some toilet paper and threw them in the garbage bin. The toilet paper was necessary, as otherwise Phil would find out he hadn’t eaten them but thrown them away. This is what he had done with most of his food for the last four months.  Now it was time to weigh himself. Phil was in town again with Louise, so he didn’t have to be too secretive. It was three days ago when they went to th Cat Café and Dan couldn’t help but feel a little put aside, even though it was mostly his own fault. He walked to the bathroom and opened the little cupboard in which the scale was placed. There was a toothbrush on it, which Dan shove aside. He then took out the scale, stepped on it and closed his eyes, waiting for it to show him how heavy he was. —– One hundred twenty. One fucking hundred twenty pounds. He hadn’t even lost that much weight. Disappointing, to say the least. He placed the scale back in the cupboard and went to his room. Just then he realized how much he hated other things counting him, measuring him, telling him what he was. He shove his curtains aside and starting looking outside. London. The weather represented quite well how he felt. Cloudy, grey, the sun trying to shine through but not succeeding. Sometimes thoughts of simply jumping out of the window wandered through his head. It wasn’t that he wanted to die, but he just didn’t see the joy in living anymore. Everything was fucked up. He looked awful these days. Fat, tired and sick. Often he felt guilty for not finding the motivation to upload more videos. And then there was Phil, who made things so much better and so much worse at the same time.  Hopelessly in love. That was all there really was to say. Phil was the first and last thing he’d think about everyday and the fact that Phil would often rather go out with friends than stay at home with Dan was hurting him. It was absolutely normal and realistic for Phil to do that, but still Dan often felt forgotten and less loved by Phil than before. The definition of that 'love’ was unclear to Dan. They were best friends, but sometimes Dan thought there was more. Their cuddles just lasted a little too long. But then again it may just be wishful thinking. —– Fifty-seven, fifty-eight, fifty-nine… twelve o'clock. Phil had said he’d be home by twelve. Dan couldn’t help but always wait for Phil to come home when he’d gone out. Not that he’d let Phil know, he’d do it secretely by simply staying awake in bed until he’d hear Phil enter their apartment. He just had to be sure Phil got home safely. Probably because Phil was the only thing in his life that could sometimes make him smile and actually feel good and he just had to be sure that his only source of gladness was sage. Pathetic, he thought of himself. Phil’s an adult, not a kid. Stop treating him like a baby. He isn’t a baby. He isn’t your baby. He isn’t yours. Just as he got lost in his own self-destructing thoughts again, as he’d do every night, he heard a door click. Then something fell on the floor. Now he was sure it was Phil, as Phil would always drop something on the floor when he came home. Some kind of undiscovered and useless talent. But Phil was home, and now he could sleep. —– Three knocks. Dan groaned. What the fuck? He had finally fallen asleep. Was this death to tell him his life was finally over? 'Dan?’ Suddenly Dan was completely awake. He looked at the clock and saw it was only one o'clock. 'Phil, what’s wrong?’ Dan sat up straight in his bed. 'You’re asking me!?’ He sounded angry. 'What the fuck? Phil, I haven’t done anything and it’s midnight! If you won’t explain then go away please.’ 'If only you gave me the time to explain!’ 'Can’t it wait till the fucking morning?’ 'No!’ Dan didn’t feel like yelling back again. Not at Phil. Phil was never angry, especially not with Dan, so this kinda scared him. 'Let’s talk in the living room, Phil.’ 'No, let’s do it here. Dan….’ Phil sighed. 'Why are you destructing yourself?’ Silence. Dan could count the seconds, but didn’t. More important things were happening. 'What are you even talking about!?’ 'Dan, I’ve seen for months you’re not well. But since this week it’s going downhill so fast…’ 'Excuse me!?’ Dan so didn’t feel like having this conversation. Phil shouldn’t and wouldn’t know. 'Dan… I- I’ve seen it. The scale. I mean, that you are trying to lose weight.’ 'That’s fucking bullshit!’ 'You moved the toothbrush. That I placed on it. So you have weighed yourself. A lot, actually. Don’t lie, I know.’ Dan was shocked. Stunned. Numb.  'Dan, I only want to-’ 'WHY do you interfere with my life!? Just keep your head out of my business Phil!! I can’t believe you!’ 'You’re skinny. I don’t want you to kill yourself.’ 'Please get out of my room. How dare you!’ 'Dan, please-’ 'I said get OUT. You clearly don’t give a fuck about my privacy or me-’ And that’s when Phil walked, almost ran from the door towards Dan and forced his lips on Dan’s. Rough, yet full of love. Angry, but so soft. Their lips slided against each other and the feeling warmed Dan up inside. Phil grabbed Dan’s neck and automatically Dan’s hand went to Phil’s back. They bit each other’s lips and grabbed each other harder to be closer. It was very wet and full of all the emotions they had both recently felt. Suddenly Dan felt tears rolling over his cheeks. Phil probably tasted the salt in their kisses, as he looked up to see Dan crying. 'Phil… I’m so confused.'  Phil hugged Dan, who placed his head in the crook of Phil’s shoulder. 'I understand, Dan. Fuck, why do you destroy yourself? You’re so precious. So amazing, so full of love and kindness.’ 'I don’t know, Phil, I don’t know.'  'You have weighed yourself more than fifty times. I counted.’ 'Please don’t count everything I do. Ever. Not anymore.’ 'I can’t promise that if you’re still doing that yourself.’ 'What do you mean?’ 'Dan, can’t you see? You are the only one measuring yourself, hating you. That’s because you measure everthing about you. Not because other people or other things do that.’ 'I can’t stop counting, Phil.’ 'Maybe not. But you can stop counting that. You should start counting other things.’ 'Like?’ Phil kissed him. 'Like how many kisses I will give you from now on each day.'  Dan smiled. 'Or how many times… I make you laugh!’ And with that Phil started tickling Dan’s tummy. 'PHIL! PHI- STOP!!’ Dan laughed and Phil stopped. 'Or… how many times I will tell you I love you?’ Phil spoke, with slight hesitation. 'Why was there a question mark?’ 'Because I wasn’t sure how you’d react…’ 'I love you, Phil.’ 'I love you too, Dan.’ They both smiled. —– 'Phil?’ 'Yeah?’ It was twenty minutes later. They’d just been sitting on Dan’s bed, talking calmly and sometimes share little kisses. 'Will you stay here with me? Tonight? Just to- sleep?’ 'Yes, under one condition…’ 'Which is?’ 'Wait here.’ Phil stood up from the bed and walked out of the bedroom. A minute later he came back with a strawberry.  'Eat this and then I’ll stay here for the night.’ Dan hesitated. 'For me?’ Phil added. Dan smiled. 'Okay…’ Phil handed him the strawberry, which he ate, while still smiling. 'Tastes good.’ Phil snuck in the bed besides Dan and pulled the blankets over the both of them. 'We’ll get through this, Dan, together. I love you.’ 'Seven.’ 'What?’ 'You said you loved me seven times today. I counted’

alien-outpost  asked:

I'm Chinese and Irish (my moms Chinese, my dads Irish), and I'm not really sure where I fit in. I live in America, and where I used to live, I was surrounded by white people who made fun of me and treated me like an outcast. Now I live in a much larger area, and I'm often told I'm a "fake Asian" and that I'm not Asian enough to consider myself a POC- that I'm way too white. Do you have any advice for me? I sort of feel like I don't belong anywhere anymore.

Hey I know how you feel! It’s pretty tough and I’m still trying to sort out the white aspects and Asian aspects of myself.

I think the largest tip is just learning to be comfortable with both halves of your background. Maybe learn about Irish culture and history from even before the Romans. Or if you don’t like Ancient history go more modern or learn about Irish-American history. And in the same breath learn about Chinese History. Learn all the cool shit and also the not as cool shit. I felt that for me, just learning some of the history and culture of both backgrounds helped me to slowly accept and integrate both sides.

Now the hard part after learning to accept the two sides internally is becoming okay with it externally. It’s one thing learning history and another thing placing the two different backgrounds in one body in Modern Day America. At that point it’s no longer history and it’s personal and present.

Maybe find some other halfies and talk to them about their experience! Extra bonus points if it is an older adult. They’ve lived longer and seen the greater scheme of a lot of stuff. Really it’s just a long learning process. If it makes you feel better, I’m still on it as well.

But nevertheless it still sucks being told that you’re never ‘enough’ of one thing or another. You are Asian enough to consider yourself Asian. You have ever right in our community. I really never understood ‘fake Asian’ because if you have Asian heritage, I’m not sure how you can fake Dna, genetics, and blood.

I hoped this helped! If not feel free to submit another ask or you can talk to me personally!

-Aidan

Ps: the largest thing is trying not to make it a 'this or that’ thing. An 'Irish or Asian’ half of yourself. That’s why I stressed the integration of both backgrounds so much. Don’t put yourself at odds with yourself.

My moment is our moment: a Lucaya fanfic
  • The story is told from Lucas side, And is their last day in Quincy Addams Middle School. Just after last class.
  • Lucas POV
  • Middle School is almost over. I might as well say is over since We're not coming back after the summer break. We are going to highschool. Wow, I'm finnaly going to High School. How different would it be? What if We all drift apart? What if I never get to see my friends?
  • What if I never get to see-
  • Zay: You ok bro?
  • Lucas: what?
  • Zay: You spaced out...
  • Lucas: oh, I was just thinking...
  • Farkle: Can you believe we'll be in highschool soon?
  • Lucas: yeah... I was just thinking about that...
  • Zay: really? Cus you didn't look as exited about it like mr genious right here...
  • Farkle: aren't you exited about it?
  • Lucas: yeah I'm just worried about some things right now.
  • Zay: about what?
  • Farkle: something we can help?
  • Lucas: not really. I just need to sort some things out before we hit highschool.
  • Zay: oh I get it... Is about-
  • Lucas: not now zay!
  • Zay: yeah it is...
  • Farkle: well you still have the whole summer. Unless you have plans to go to texas.
  • Lucas: I do actually. That's why I think I need to sort this out today...
  • Zay: why such a rush?
  • Lucas: cus I'm leaving this sunday.
  • Farkle: but is friday!
  • Zay: yeah, relax... You still have like 3 days left...

  • Zay: but last time I could watch! And it was painfull I must add
  • Lucas: You didn't had to watch!
  • Zay: she said the exact same thing... But honestly, I can't look away.
  • Farkle: Don't worry Lucas. We won't butt in.
  • Zay: But I wanna watch!
  • Farkle: I'll keep an eye on him.
  • Lucas: thanks buddy. I need some alone time now. The girls will be out of their meeting soon and I have to think what I'm gonna say to them.
  • Zay: But Didn't you already made up your mind?
  • Lucas: Yeah... But is not about me, I need to know how they feel about it.

  • Maya: Can't wait to get out of school. So gladd is finaly over!
  • Riley: Aren't we waiting for Farkle and Zay?
  • Lucas: they had something to do. I was waiting to walk you home.
  • Maya: whatever, lets get out of here.
  • Riley: But Farkle always waits for us
  • Maya: Riles, he's gone. You wanna stay here alone?
  • Riley: But...
  • Lucas: Come with us Riley, we kinda need to talk, and that's kinda the reason they left.
  • Maya: oh... Sorry... I' leave. So you can talk.
  • Lucas: No! I mean... Don't go... This is kinda between us three.
  • Riley: why?
  • Maya: isn't it obvious? He knows we both like him! This is ridiculous... I'm not staying. (Turns and starts walking away)
  • Lucas: Maya! Please! Would you listen to me at least?
  • Maya: (turns, tears filling her eyes) why should I? You know all you needed to know, and you didn't say anything.
  • Lucas: I'm sorry. Is just... You never asked me what I felt! Or what I feel...
  • Maya: doesn't matter anymore...
  • Lucas: yes it does.
  • Riley: So what so you feel Lucas?
  • Maya: Lets go Riley... (Comes back to get Riley and takes her hand) It doesn't matter anymore, is all behind us. (Tries to drag Riley out)
  • Riley: (stops her) wait, I wanna know how he feels.
  • Maya: why?
  • Riley: Because is true. We never asked him what he felt...
  • Maya: Then you go ask him. I don't care anymore.
  • Lucas: Maya please... Just listen
  • Riley: what do you feel Lucas?
  • Maya: I don't wanna hear it! I don't care! (Turns away with watery eyes)
  • Riley: you know, for someone who doesn't care you're talking in all caps. And I know you care! You wouldn't be upset otherwise.
  • Maya: I don't!
  • Lucas: Well I do Maya! I do care because all those times I could have said something I didn't. And I understand if you don't wanna give me another chance, but please let me explain.
  • Maya: explain what? I already know. You felt sorry for me, you thought your moment with Riley was over, but then it wasn't... And we are better if we stay friends... Did I miss anything?
  • Riley: oh, Peaches. You missed everything!
  • Riley: You wanna know what I've been looking at for the past few months? I've been watching my best friend hiding her feeling for the guy who's supposed to be dating me, and him (turns to Lucas) him falling in love with her right in front of me! But he never said anything! He never said anything because...
  • Lucas: because I care about you Riles.
  • Maya: see... you got it all wrong. He loves you. He always has. (walks away)
  • Riley: we had our moment Lucas... Is gone, just like Maya. She still loves you, you know? That's why she's so hurt.
  • Lucas: I'm sorry Riles.
  • Riley: Don't be. I had my moment. Go have yours!
  • Lucas: (runs outside but turns as he reaches the door) would you be alright?
  • Farkle: (turns around the corner) I'll walk her home!
  • Lucas: should have known....
  • Zay: Go Bro! I'm right behind you...
  • Farkle and Riley: NO!
  • Maya was walking really fast, just around the corner. He reached her because he was running. Touched her arm and stopped her.
  • Lucas: (panting) Maya, please wait!
  • Maya: Is ok, Huckleberry. No need to explain. I just need some space right now. We'll talk on Monday.(starts walking home)
  • Lucas: No. (Follows her) that's the thing. We are not fine! This can't wait for tomorrow. I'm leaving in two days for Texas and I won't come back untill next school year starts...
  • Maya: We're fine, we'll still be friends when you come back.
  • Lucas: Just stop saying that! We are not just friends!
  • Maya: yes we are! (Keeps walking until he grabs her arm and turns her)
  • Lucas: you never once asked me what I felt.
  • Maya: Because I already knew the answer.
  • (Takes her arm away from his hands) Lucas: No, you thought you knew.
  • Maya: so enlighten me. What did you felt?
  • Lucas: I was afraid! I was ashamed because I liked this girl so much, but she wasn't into me! She even pushed her best friend to date me!
  • Maya: you know what, You didn't had to date me. If you liked Riley so much and after she "pushed me" to you, you could have said no. Is not that hard!
  • Lucas: what? Why would I say no to the girl I like? That would be stupid!
  • Maya: what are you talking about?
  • Lucas: You. I'm talking about you. It's always been you. I've liked you since the day you smiled at me, introduced yourself and broke up with me. I never got over you... And then you pushed Riley to me, and she's cute and all, but... She's not you. I never thought I had any chance with you, until Texas, when Riley told me you... liked me.
  • Maya: But, why didn't you said anything?
  • Lucas: because I couldn't believe it. I was shocked. And scare. It was the scariest moment of my life.
  • Maya: why? I'm not a monster.
  • Lucas: Because if I ever had the chance to have you, that meant I could loose you. And I don't wanna.
  • Maya: That's stupid
  • Lucas: I know right. I was finnaly gonna have my moment.
  • Maya: what moment?
  • Lucas: this moment!
  • Then, I don't know where all that confidence came from, but I just had to kiss her. This was my moment. I just grabbed her face, gently and pulled her close to me, and I leaned down to reach her lips. And I kissed her. I kissed her and I was the happiest I' ve ever been. I couldn't believe I finnaly did it. I had my moment.
  • Maya: don't you mean our moment?
  • Lucas: yes. My moment is yours.
  • Maya: did you really liked me since the first day?
  • Lucas: I did. Why you think I kept the game going so long?
  • Maya: I thoought you likes Riley and you were just annoyed by me.
  • Lucas: I do like Riley, but my heart was already somewhere else. I was just scared of you.
  • Maya: but why? You rode a bull!
  • Lucas: baby, you are way more scary than Tumbstone...
  • Maya: I'm not that bad...
  • Lucas: you told me you wanted to break me!
  • Maya: and you said you couldn't wait for it!
  • Lucas: Cus I wanted to make you happy...
  • Maya: ugh... This isn't working out...
  • Lucas: (laughs) let me gess. It's not you, it's me... Cus I don't pay enough attention to you?
  • Maya: but we can still be friends!
  • Lucas: not really... You see, I tried. But I can't. I'm way to much in love... I can't let you go.
  • Maya: really? That much?
  • Lucas: I would rather have you break me every day for the rest of my life, than not having you around.
  • Maya: says the guy who's leaving for Texas.
  • Lucas: If you ask me, I'll stay.
  • Maya: oh... I would never do that...
  • Lucas: what? Why not? You're not playing this right!
  • Maya: because, I'm not staying here Huckleberry. I'll rather go have a squaredance week than sit around waiting for you. Besides I kinda miss pappy joe.
  • Lucas: If that makes you happy, I certainly can't wait for it. Ma-am.
  • Maya: you just gotta recicle lines don'tcha?
  • Lucas: I'm resourcefull. Did I tell you about the time I delivered a baby horse?
  • Maya: shut up and kiss me already!
  • Lucas: will do ma-am.
  • The end
  • Not really
  • A little extra 😉
  • Maya: wait... How long did you said you were leaving?
  • Lucas: all the vacation time.
  • Maya: that's a lot of packing... I don't think I have that many texan outfits.
  • Lucas: you know... you can wear regular clothes.
  • Maya: you really need to try harder...
  • Lucas: I'll carry your bags?
  • Maya: you're not even trying...
  • Lucas: we'll get you new ones!
  • Maya: now we're talking. I was just kidding by the way. We are comming back after one week.
  • Lucas: I figured, after you said squaredance week.
  • Maya: yeah... Sounds nice and all. But I hated the rodeo... Brings back bad memories.
  • Lucas: No more rodeo shortstack.
  • Maya: promess?
  • Lucas: I promess, I'll talk to grandpa...
  • Maya: I'll deal with Pappy Joe from now on.
  • Lucas: Ok... Can I have my moment now?
  • Maya: no... You had yours. Now is my turn to have my moment! (She kisses him)
  • Lucas: Our moment?
  • Maya: our moment.
  • And just like that. I got the girl. All it took was a few yesrs, some time to analize things and a lot of guts. Cus man, she's scary.
Now for the fun!!
  • So over the ships pretty sure Rucas is happening now on to the "game changing" news that's going to happen in sweet sixteen! So I'm going to try my hand at predictions! Mind you I'm bad at this stuff so bear with me lol
  • So first what we know
  • ~Everything relies on a decision (so the game changer may not happen)
  • ~Topanga has some say in the decision
  • ~Depending on the decision Cory could potentially not be their teacher anymore
  • ~It has nothing to do with money
  • ~it has nothing to do with school
  • ~there is no threat of them moving back to philly
  • ~ Cory was not offered a better job
  • ~ an opportunity did not present itself to Riley
  • ~Farkle dos not get an early acceptance to college
  • ~the game changer makes Riley Auggie and Maya sad and cry but it in itself isn't necessarily sad...it's actually good
  • ~if it happened it will affect EVERYONE including even Shawn
  • ~ Farkle does not know and his reaction should be particularly interesting
  • ~ someone if not everyone is finally going to "explode"
  • ~no one came out as gay bi etc
  • ~ may seem to the "bird watchers" (wtf is that) that it is good for rucas but in fact it isn't
  • ~ no one dies and we already said the game changer was actually good news so this is like common sense
  • ~no one is pregnant (although that honestly would be like the BIGGEST game changer of all time in my book especially if Riley was pregnant but that's like OVER pushing the envelope lol)
  • ~this game changer could potentially affect Rilaya and it seems not in a good way
  • ~Maya is not moving in with her dad
  • ~If they film the show where the game changer does happen,again, everyone will be affected and they could potentially end the show on this ( if need be i.e. Get canceled)
  • ~if no cancellation again everything will change
  • ~there is the potential to lose someone
  • ~in this episode no one is moving
  • okay so with all of this information to me the most obvious predication is that Cory, Topanga, Riley, and Auggie are potentially moving. Really the only thing that will affect everyone and the very premise of the show itself with these perimeters is them moving. Because really nothing would affect Shawn other than Maya and Katy and let's be honest most of all Cory lol. We know Maya isn't moving to her fathers but still if Maya was the one moving why would Auggie be crying and Topanga have a choice in the matter?
  • -So we know Cory didn't get a new job offer and Riley didn't get a new opportunity. I thought about maybe one of their parents got really sickly and they had to move back to be with them but nahh because of the hint the news is good and they are not moving back to philly. So this kind of only leaves either Auggie getting a new opportunity and them moving for him or Topanga once again getting a new opportunity (and I say once again because there's always something going on with Topanga esp if you watched BMW). Also as far as tying into Topangas say in the matter the girl meets world writers already said sometime in this season Riley and Topanga were going to have a huge fight and this might be the catalyst. Also there was a hint at possibly someone realizing they like another person while being in a relationship because reality has a way of making things clear with the potential of losing someone. Let's all be honest and say we now this has to do with Riley and Farkle. and also it was stated the show if canceled could easily end this way (also hinted that it's common. What's a more common way to end a series than the main character moving away). Now there was mention that no one was moving (In this episode). It was real suspicious how "in this episode" was added to meaning probably the decision hasn't been made yet about the move.
  • Well those are some of my thoughts where and why they are moving is a mystery but it might become clear soon.
  • I got all of these hints from a tumblr user who was at the live taping of the episode. I honestly forgot their username so if anyone knows it please link or something 😁 oh found its "girlmeetsherworld" I don't know how to tag people lol but there is probably more hints on that blog
  • Feel free to let me know yalls ideas
  • UPDATE: it's recommended to watch these BMW episodes "A long walk to Pittsburg 1&2" , "Graduation", Angela's Ashes, "Brave New World 1&2" now I JUST finished binge watching all of BMW so I don't even need to go rewatch but if you haven't watched these episodes then wow it's almost completely obvious lol
  • "A long Walk To Pittsburg 1&2": episode where Topanga MOVES AWAY to Pittsburg because one of her parents got transferred!!!!
  • "Graduation": episode where they graduated high school and everyone was MOVING AWAY to college and on to the next chapter of their lives. Topanga had to make the decision to go to Yale or stay with Cory (she stays with Cory lol)
  • "Angela's Ashes": Angela MOVES AWAY with her father to Europe
  • "Brave New World 1&2": last episodes of BMW everyone is preparing to MOVE AWAY and again on to the next chapter of their lives. Again, Topanga gets a job offer from a law firm in New York (hello gmw lol) and Cory and Shawn MOVE with her there
  • I mean idk how much more blatant could this get and multiple people have said watch these episodes. And can we please talk about how basically ALL of these episodes have some shit to do with Topanga? Perhaps a hint? Even though Angela was the one leaving in Angela's ashes Topanga was the one zooming around and interviewing for the New York job so The episode was about Angela but HIGH KEY Topanga.
  • Lol I'm going to stick with this moving away thing but knowing my luck it's not going to be this because it would have been "too obvious" haha
  • Another Update:
  • So after an interesting message today I'm now like 87% sure that this is happening 🙊
  • So I watched True Maya and Jexica again because those are the recommended GMW episodes to watch and let's just say in this theory I'm missing exactly who is moving (I think Riley and fam but I'm not exactly sure), why they are moving, and where they are moving
  • Let's just say that after watching those episodes I see that at least one of those answers is defiantly hinted at 👀👀
  • A hint: something pertaining to one of those three questions will be mentioned 3 times over both episodes. All of the mentions are different but they all have one thing in common. Another hint, after you watch the episodes and think about it, look back over the recaps of my BMW episodes. It's literally written right there.
  • Okay actually...after some things I realized that basically everything you need is in this theory lol just put it all together. like I said isn't there a common theme in the BMW episodes? And watch the two GMW episodes and think about what I said. All of this should answer who, why, and where (:

barney and robin's real ending (in my personal universe it's a bit too fairytale)
  • It's 2030, Robin is driving and Barney is on the passenger seat, they're talking
  • R: Remember when we were in Hong Kong?
  • B: Yeah asian boobs, I mean, girls, everywhere
  • Robins rolls her eyes
  • R: I mean //that// day
  • B: Of course I do, Robin, how could I forget?
  • Robin sights and pouts slighly like she's upset but not in an entirely sad way
  • R: She was so small
  • B: Yeah
  • R: And now, college
  • B: Yeah, about that, do you think it'd be too much to put a tracking device on her? I'm thinking on the teeth maybe-
  • R: Barney!
  • Robin takes one hand off the wheel and slaps his arm
  • B: Ouch! Don't pretend like you haven't thought about it. Remember: dorms, booze, frat boys
  • R: Frat boys?
  • B: It's college anything could happen, we have to take precautions
  • Robin looks thoughtful for a moment
  • R: We could ask Marvin to look after her
  • B: That's not enough! we should-
  • R: Shut it Barney she can see us
  • B: Fine but we'll discuss it later
  • It's 2019, Barney and Robin are on a hotel room in Hong Kong. Robin is rushing around looking for something work related and Barney is sitting on the bed looking anxious
  • B: Robin?
  • She doesn't listen
  • B: Robin, hey
  • Barney holds her wrist as she walks by
  • R: What Barney? I can't find my things and I'm late
  • B: There's something we need to talk about
  • Robin finally pays attention to his expression and her own shifts from frustration to concern
  • R: Is something wrong?
  • Barney takes a deep breath and tugs her toward the bed. She sits in front of him, their eyes lock
  • B: We have to talk about where this - he gestures in between them - is going
  • R: What do you mean?
  • B: Look, Robin, neither of us ever wanted to get married-
  • R: Wait, Barney, I know you hate being away from home but I just got a proposal to move back to New York, I'll barely travel anymore you won't even have to come if you don't want to I-
  • B: Hey Scherbatsky, calm down
  • R: No! You're about to ask for a divorce!
  • B: Wow, wait, no, that's not it
  • He holds her hands and shifs so they're sitting closer now
  • B: When we got married I vowed to always be honest with you, and lately I've been wishing for something, something you might not want to share with me, and that's why I've kept it to mysel only because I thought-
  • R: Cut to the chase Barney, you're making me nervous
  • B: Okay. I think. No. I know I want kids, but I want you more, so if you don't want them, that's fine, but if you could do this for me, Robin, if you've changed your mind even a little bit about this please
  • R: Barney, I told you, I can't
  • Robin let's go of his hands to rest her palms on her own flat stomach
  • B: I know, I know, I was thinking we could adopt
  • Robin gets up covering her mouth with one hand and starts pacing around the room
  • B: I get it if you don't want this, I knew about it when I married you
  • R: Be quiet I need a minute
  • They stay in silence for a long time Barney on the bed and Robin still pacing. Eventually she stops in front of the window contemplating the view of that strange city
  • R: We could do it here
  • B: What?
  • R: Before we leave for the U.S., I can call some favors
  • B: I don't follow
  • R: A little girl, I think, they leave so many of them here
  • B: Are you saying...
  • She turns around to face him, the corners of her mouth are curved up just slighly
  • R: We're getting a daughter
  • Robin's voice is a whisper but the words make Barney smile openly
  • B: We're getting a daughter!
  • He jumps off the bed and rushes toward Robin taking her in his arms and kissing her. When they break apart there's laughter and tears and they're terrified but really happy at the same time
  • Barney and Robin are on an orphanage, there are kids running everywhere, they are starting to regret their decision and are about to leave when a little girl stops them, she looks about seven and her black hair is tied back with a red ribbon, an employee comes running after her
  • (M is for the little girl and E is for the employee)
  • M: Miss, Mister, do you think I'm too young to know if I like girls?
  • Barney and Robin smile in surprise at her question and the employee looks mortified
  • E: I'm sorry, she's always like this, out of control
  • R: It's okay
  • M: Are you gonna answer?
  • E: Mae!
  • Barney laughs
  • B: I think that's something you always know
  • M: See?!
  • The little girl looks victorious but the employee eyes her angrily
  • E: Let's go, that's enough for the day
  • M: You need to get over yourself
  • Barney bursts into laughter then and Robin slaps his arm but she's holding back one of her own
  • E: I apologize, she watches too much TV, hockey games made her agressive
  • That sentence makes Robin freeze and Barney looks over at her smiling in utter amusement
  • B: So you like hockey?
  • M: Yes, and the news, actually aren't you Robin Scherbatsky?
  • Barney pokes Robin's ribs and she comes back to the real world
  • R: Yeah, I mean, yes, I am
  • M: You're everywhere, your life must be awesome
  • R: I guess, I've seen a lot of places
  • M: That's so cool
  • E: Okay, Mae I'm serious time to go
  • M: Fine, fine, bye
  • She waves her little hand at them as she walks away and Barney and Robin are left with a sense of accomplishment
  • Back to 2030
  • There's a beautiful nineteen-year-old girl on the sidewalk, her hair is tied back with a red ribbon, she smiles when the car pulls over and opens the door to get in
  • M: Hey mom, hey dad
  • B: Hello baby girl
  • M: Dad I told you to stop doing that, I'm going to college!
  • B: But you'll always be my baby girl
  • M: God you're so cheesy
  • Mae rolls her eyes and Robin laughs
  • R: Are you excited?
  • M: Are you kidding me? It's gonna be legen - wait for it - dary! Legendary! Plus, lots of college hotties
  • B: That's my girl!
  • Barney and Mae high five and Robin rolls her eyes
  • R: You do remember we're going to Canada in two weeks right?
  • M: Of course! Not gonna miss the Scherbatsky's annual hockey game on the year we kick aunt Katie's team in the ass
  • R: Now, that is MY girl!
  • Robin and Mae high five and Barney smiles
  • M: Why are we going to uncle Ted's again?
  • B: It's the anniversary of the gang
  • R: The day they met me twenty five years ago
  • M: Wait does that mean aunt Lily is cooking?
  • R: No, I think it's aunt Tracy's turn
  • M: Thank god, aunt Lil's "gourmet" taste kills me
  • R: Yeah, don't ever tell her that
  • M: I know, I know "Aldrin justice"
  • B: Your aunt Lily is an evil mastermind that must not be toyed with. We're serious
  • M: Sometimes I think you guys overreact
  • Barney and Robin exchange a serious look
  • R/B: Just don't tell her
  • M: Wow, okay
  • They arrive at the Mosby household and Robin stops the car, as soon as she does Mae jumps out and runs for the door screaming she'll get revenge on Marvin and Daisy for whatever new prank they pulled on her, her parents stay in the car watching
  • R: Does it ever bother you?
  • B: What?
  • R: That she doesn't look like us
  • B: Robin, she's exactly my type
  • R/B: Asian with some boob
  • They say it at the same time
  • B: Yeah!
  • R: That's disturbing
  • B: For once I agree let's never say it again
  • He's starting to get out of the car but Robin holds his arm to keep him in place
  • R: Seriously, does it? Bother you I mean?
  • B: Robin, I think if we did have children that were of our own blood they still wouldn't be as perfect as Mae is, so no, it doesn't
  • Robin smiles
  • R: Thank you
  • B: For what?
  • R: Everything
  • B: I agreed to a divorce three years into our marriage why are you thanking me
  • She slaps his arm once again playfully
  • B: Okay, you know what, it was entirely my pleasure
  • Their eyes lock and they smile in perfect sync leaning in for a kiss but are interrupted by Mae shouting from the door
  • M: Hey! Are you guys coming or what?
  • R: We'll be there in a second!
  • Robin gives Barney a quick kiss and they get out of the car and walk toward the house, their second pair of wedding rings gleam under the sunlight
Beatles: First Radio Interview, 10/28/1962
  • MONTY: It's a very great pleasure for us this evening to say hello to an up-and-coming Merseyside group, The Beatles. I know their names, and I'm going to try and put faces to them. Now, you're John Lennon, aren't you?"
  • JOHN: "Yes, that's right."
  • MONTY: "What do you do in the group, John?"
  • JOHN: "I play harmonica, rhythm guitar, and vocal. That's what they call it."
  • MONTY: "Then, there's Paul McCartney. That's you?"
  • PAUL: "Yeah, that's me. Yeah."
  • MONTY: "And what do you do?"
  • PAUL: "Play bass guitar and uhh, sing? ...I think! That's what they say."
  • MONTY: "That's quite apart from being vocal?"
  • PAUL: "Well... yes, yes."
  • MONTY: "Then there's George Harrison."
  • GEORGE: "How d'you do."
  • MONTY: "How d'you do. What's your job?"
  • GEORGE: "Uhh, lead guitar and sort of singing."
  • MONTY: "By playing lead guitar does that mean that you're sort of leader of the group or are you...?"
  • GEORGE: "No, no. Just... Well you see, the other guitar is the rhythm. Ching, ching, ching, you see."
  • PAUL: "He's solo guitar, you see. John is in fact the leader of the group."
  • MONTY: "And over in the background, here, and also in the background of the group making alot of noise is Ringo Starr."
  • RINGO: "Hello."
  • MONTY: "You're new to the group, aren't you Ringo?"
  • RINGO: "Yes, umm, nine weeks now."
  • MONTY: "Were you in on the act when the recording was made of 'Love Me Do'?"
  • RINGO: "Yes, I'm on the record. I'm on the disc."
  • (the group giggles)
  • RINGO: (comic voice) "It's down on record, you know?"
  • MONTY: "Now, umm..."
  • RINGO: "I'm the drummer!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "What's that offensive weapon you've got there? Those are your drumsticks?"
  • RINGO: "Well, it's umm... just a pair of sticks I found. I just bought 'em, you know, 'cuz we're going away."
  • MONTY: "When you say you're going away, that leads us on to another question now. Where are you going?"
  • RINGO: "Germany. Hamburg. For two weeks."
  • MONTY: "You have standing and great engagements over there, haven't you?"
  • RINGO: "Well, the boys have been there quite alot, you know. And I've been there with other groups, but this is the first time I've been there with the Beatles."
  • MONTY: "Paul, tell us. How do you get in on the act in Germany?"
  • PAUL: "Well, it was all through an old agent."
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: (chuckles) "We first went there for a fella who used to manage us, and Mr. Allan Williams of the Jacaranda Club in Liverpool. And he found the engagements so we sort of went there, and then went under our own..."
  • JOHN: "Steam."
  • PAUL: "Steam... (laughs)
  • JOHN: "...as they say."
  • PAUL: "As they say, afterwards, you know. And we've just been going backwards and forwards and backwards and forwards."
  • MONTY: (surprised) "You're not busy at all?"
  • PAUL: (jokingly) "Well yes, actually. Yes. It's me left leg. You know. The war."
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "George, were you brought up in Liverpool?"
  • GEORGE: "Yes. So far, yes."
  • MONTY: "Whereabouts?"
  • GEORGE: "Well, born in Wavertree, and bred in Wavertree and Speke -- where the airplanes are, you know."
  • MONTY: "Are you all 'Liverpool types,' then?"
  • RINGO: "Yes."
  • JOHN: "Uhh... types, yes."
  • PAUL: "Oh yeah."
  • RINGO: "Liverpool-typed Paul, there."
  • MONTY: "Now, I'm told that you were actually in the same form as young Ron Wycherley..."
  • RINGO: "Ronald. Yes."
  • MONTY: "...now Billy Fury."
  • RINGO: "In Saint Sylus."
  • MONTY: "In which?"
  • RINGO: "Saint Sylus."
  • JOHN: "Really?"
  • RINGO: "It wasn't Dingle Vale like you said in the Musical Express."
  • PAUL: "No, that was wrong. Saint Sylus school."
  • MONTY: "Now I'd like to introduce a young disc jockey. His name is Malcolm Threadgill, he's 16-years old, and I'm sure he'd like to ask some questions from the teenage point of view."
  • MALCOLM: "I understand you've made other recordings before on a German label."
  • PAUL: "Yeah."
  • MALCOLM: "What ones were they?"
  • PAUL: "Well, we didn't make... First of all we made a recording with a fella called Tony Sheridan. We were working in a club called 'The Top Ten Club' in Hamburg. And we made a recording with him called, 'My Bonnie,' which got to number five in the German Hit Parade."
  • JOHN: "Ach tung!"
  • PAUL: (giggles) "But it didn't do a thing over here, you know. It wasn't a very good record, but the Germans must've liked it a bit. And we did an instrumental which was released in France on an EP of Tony Sheridan's, which George and John wrote themselves. That wasn't released here. It got one copy. That's all, you know. It didn't do anything."
  • MALCOLM: "You composed 'P.S. I Love You' and 'Love Me Do' yourself, didn't you? Who does the composing between you?"
  • PAUL: "Well, it's John and I. We write the songs between us. It's, you know... We've sort of signed contracts and things to say, that now if we..."
  • JOHN: "It's equal shares."
  • PAUL: "Yeah, equal shares and royalties and things, so that really we just both write most of the stuff. George did write this instrumental, as we say. But mainly it's John and I. We've written over about a hundred songs but we don't use half of them, you know. We just happened to sort of rearrange 'Love Me Do' and played it to the recording people, and 'P.S. I Love You,' and uhh, they seemed to quite like it. So that's what we recorded."
  • MALCOLM: "Is there anymore of your own compositions you intend to record?"
  • JOHN: "Well, we did record another song of our own when we were down there, but it wasn't finished enough. So, you know, we'll take it back next time and see how they like it then."
  • (long pause)
  • JOHN: (jokingly) "Well... that's all from MY end!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "I would like to just ask you-- and we're recording this at Hume Hall, Port Sunlight-- Did any of you come over to this side before you became famous, as it were? Do you know this district?"
  • PAUL: "Well, we played here, uhh... I don't know what you mean by famous, you know.
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: "If being famous is being in the Hit Parade, we've been over here-- we were here about two months ago. Been here twice, haven't we?"
  • JOHN: "I've got relations here. Rock Ferry."
  • MONTY: "Have you?"
  • JOHN: "Yes. Oh, all sides of the water, you know."
  • PAUL: "Yeah, I've got a relation in Claughton Village-- Upton Road."
  • RINGO: (jokingly) "I've got a friend in Birkenhead!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "I wish I had."
  • GEORGE: (jokingly) "I know a man in Chester!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "Now, that's a very dangerous thing to say. There's a mental home there, mate. Peter Smethurst is here as well, and he looks like he is bursting with a question."
  • PETER: "There is just one question I'd like to ask. I'm sure it's the question everyone's asking. I'd like your impressions on your first appearance on television."
  • PAUL: "Well, strangely enough, we thought we were gonna be dead nervous. And everyone said, 'You suddenly, when you see the cameras, you realize that there are two million people watching,' because there were two million watching that 'People And Places' that we did... we heard afterwards. But, strangely enough, it didn't come to us. We didn't think at all about that. And it was much easier doing the television than it was doing the (live musical performance) radio. It's still nerve-wracking, but it was a bit easier than doing radio because there was a full audience for the radio broadcast."
  • MONTY: "Do you find it nerve-wracking doing this now?"
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: (jokingly) "Yeah, yeah."
  • MONTY: "Over at Cleaver Hospital, a certain record on Parlophone-- the top side has been requested. So perhaps the Beatles themselves would like to tell them what it's going to be."
  • PAUL: "Yeah. Well, I think it's gonna be 'Love Me Do.'"
  • JOHN: "Parlophone R4949."
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: "'Love Me Do.'"
  • MONTY: "And I'm sure, for them, the answer is P.S. I love you!"
  • PAUL: "Yeah."

anonymous asked:

I don't mean to pressure you by any means but I was wondering why you haven't been putting out any more videos these days? Are you not making any more?

This will get pretty long but its something I’ve been wanting to talk about for quite a while, so sorry if this is something you guys are not interested in. 

The short and direct answer is, don’t worry about it! I’m still going to be making videos in the near future.

The long, extensive answer is this, though. If you guys have been following me for a few months, you guys know that I’ve been struggling with making content overall for quite a while now. Its made me depressed and frustrated even thinking about it. I consider myself a content creator, and when I cannot come up with a concept for a video that it worth making or showing publicly, I feel like a complete failure and end up unmotivated. This, however, is due to how I manage my Youtube channel and the type of content I’ve been putting out for a long time. It’s all been crackin’ silly jokes and improvising pretty much all of them. I know many of you guys like the videos like I HATE PULP and TOILET PAPER ANGER and the POKEMON CRIES videos, but honestly they require zero effort. Even so, after a while the jokes start to get pretty old, and I don’t want to force content down your throats over something that’s already run its course. These videos never really requires any effort on my side and the quality was mediocre at best.

There’s a lot I want to do, but I really enjoy doing things my current audience likes. However, I feel like its time for me to start doing things a little bit more for myself, while also retaining an audience and also growing it little by little.

I admit, I enjoy the attention and am slightly embarrassed to admit it. It’s not something I never really imagined myself saying publicly, but I feel it needs to be said for this post. I love the artwork you guys make for me, I love messages from you all, I love when you guys visit my streams, etc. However, for the past few months, I’ve become pretty irrelevant in the communities I used to be part of. Even in my own. It’s not really that big of a deal or a bad thing by any means, but since I’ve gotten a tiny taste of success, I kind of want to build up more upon it and do my very best to reach more people to make them laugh and have a better day because of stuff I make. This is the sole reason why I started making videos and audio in the first place. When my work can’t do that anymore, I feel useless. Therefore, I’ve been thinking long and hard on who I am and what I want to do with my work. I’ve been considering pure animation, sketches, vlogs, etc. There’s a lot I can do, but I think I’ve arrived at a conclusion that I’m not really willing to reveal just yet. Making stuff is more of a gamble, and when people like me worry a lot about these sorts of things, it can end up being pretty stressful. However, I feel like this entire “creator’s block” period and slight existential crisis was all critical to who I am and will be soon. 

I hope you guys understand where I’m coming from and why I haven’t been as active these past few days, and I really hope I haven’t betrayed your guys’ trust by not keeping up with more content… You guys are seriously one of the best things that have ever happened in my life, and I would feel really bad if I lost all of you some day. That’s why I’ll keep working hard on what I do and never give up on my hopes and dreams, living up to my own expectations and ambitions, with hopes that I reach your expectations as well! Again, sorry for the long post. I felt it was necessary for me to give some sort of explanation to my absence. Thank you so much for reading this, and if you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask away!! You guys are the best people in the planet, and I love hearing from you all. Keep being absolutely incredible.
