Tales from a Summer at an Amusement Park Food Line

- While attempting to close on my very first shift, I accidentally dropped an entire container of Italian dressing on the floor. Most of it went into my socks. It made for a very unpleasant ride home.

- The line I worked in served personal pan pizzas, club wraps, carved turkey sandwiches, salads (side salads as well as Mediterranean salads), very large pickles, and a variety of desserts made in store. We were allowed to alter recipes as people requested, within reason. One person requested a pizza without sauce. I respected her decision. A surprising number of people requested pizzas without cheese. I questioned theirs, especially since they got pepperoni.

- We offered a gluten-free pizza that took twenty minutes to cook (ordinary pizzas took five). There was one man I came to recognize who showed up at least every other week to order a gluten-free pizza. I very much hope that he had a season’s pass, or he was spending upwards of $70 a week for the privilege of waiting on a pizza.

- A child came in with his parents one day and they began asking about the ingredients in all our food. As my coworker began to answer, I stopped him and asked if this were an allergy question; when told yes, I asked them to wait and went to hunt down a manager, as company policy stated that only managers or higher could answer questions regarding allergies. My coworkers did not understand why I was wasting people’s time like this. I attempted to explain to them that I had no desire to kill a seven-year-old because I thought I knew better than the allergen manual. They continued to ridicule me. The mother made a point of thanking me in front of my supervisor when she arrived for apparently being the only person who was concerned about the well-being of her child, who was evidently allergic to everything.

- This was far from the only argument I had with my coworkers about allergen safety. I fear for the customers.

- A man came into my line one afternoon, looked at me, looked at the salads, looked at me, looked at the salads again, looked at me, pointed directly at the salads, and said, “You sell salads?” I expended every ounce of willpower I had left not to respond, “No, sir, those are small ornamental shrubbery.”

- Victoria Justice came to give a concert at our park one afternoon. I have never heard any of her music, but between the fact that she was apparently an elitist bully to the ride attendants (and other guests) when she was enjoying her day at the park and the fact that the park was sold out that day with mostly girls under the age of twelve, all of whom wanted pizza for lunch, I have decided that I hate her.

- A couple came through my line. We recognized each other. They were parishioners at the church I had worked for prior to the amusement park. I left the church because I was fired in a very underhanded and unprofessional manner. I cheerfully told them to say hello to everybody for me. They left very quickly.

- Part of our job was to engage any guests waiting in line in conversation, especially the children. I was exceptionally good at this part of my job. My coworkers were either in awe or jealous.

- The number of people who did not understand that I did not have their special orders ready before they thought to order them was mind-boggling.

- A toddler came into my line and began chattering with me. This would not have been unusual, except that his parents were nowhere in sight, nor was any other adult, as they were all in the other room watching the show. I leaned as far over the counter as I could to keep the little guy talking and in sight until an adult came to take responsibility for him. To this day, I sincerely hope that the adult who came for him was actually his mother.

- While attempting to close down our second line, I used one of the four doors to the small refrigerator cases to support myself as I pushed myself from a squatting position to a standing one. I ripped the door off its top hinge.

- My coworker made a joke one night about something she would like to do. I explained how it would be possible. Her eyes filled with fear. I had to explain that I am a writer and had done research for a mystery novel and that I have not, in fact, ever cut someone’s feet off at the ankles with a cake knife.

- I became somewhat well-known among my coworkers for knowing all the words to the songs in the shows that went on in the dining area while we were cooking/serving. Strangely enough, my coworkers were less confused as to how I, a 23-year-old, knew ‘80s pop songs than they were as to how I, a 23-year-old, knew German drinking songs.

- Three days before the end of the summer, having been friends with one particular colleague for nearly five months, I had to pull out my ID to prove to her that I was in my twenties and not, in fact, nineteen.

GRAVITY FALLS FAN APPRECIATION POST

Ok so you know what? I have spent a long time thinking about this and I need to share it with all gravity falls fans. I have seen countless and countless gravity falls posts and I just have to tell you guys that the fans are just amazing. I mean they are just astounding whenever I see a new post or fic or anything I am so stunned by the quality of the fandom I mean, I really don’t know how exactly to explain it

But I’ll try

First are the AUs. The wonderful incredible AUs. I mean, I know that other fandoms have AUs and blends, but nothing like gravity falls.

AU where the golden trio of Fids, Ford, and Stan go monster hunting

AND THEY JUST KEEP COMING

There are so many more AUs that I didn’t even mention its crazy! I’ve counted almost 200 AUs and I know that there are more out there

There is an AU where everyone sings like a regular Disney movie AND PEOPLE WRITE THE SONGS FOR IT HOW DO YOU HAVE THE TIME FOR THAT

And not only do people spend weeks, months, years developing their ideas and posting them online, they are writing fanfics, they are drawing fanart, they are commenting and building up to the point where it is so well known that no one even remembers who started

But it goes so much more beyond that. All the details, the plot, the intricacies that go in planning and creating them, painting and drawing them, writing and re-writing them. That is so much dedication but it goes beyond that

All the analysis and in-depth discussion of each episode, each character, each theory from Stan’s Death symbolism to Stan’s Twin before Ford was introduced, the time and effort put in dedicating and researching to build but these wild and plausible ideas, but it goes so much beyond that

The fact that these characters mean so much to us, we identify so much with them that the cipher hunt was even possible, that the fans had worked together worldwide to discover the location of bill cipher, that we sold out the pre-order of the journal 3 so fast that Disney printed the black-light edition TWICE for us, this sense of unity and fellowship that we have for each other, it’s just incredible

When I first started watching gravity falls, it was when Ford was first introduced. I knew about the spoiler going in, but that didn’t stop me from loving the show for its characters and stories. It was also when I first started Tumblr, so the first thing I looked up was gravity falls. I was floored by all the content, the AUs, the art, the fics, just everything. I was moved by just what a fan can do to show their support for a show they love. I have been in other fandoms, but never as immersed as I was with gravity falls.  

@saisai-chan, @thesnadger, @arodudejude, @pinesinthewoods @aroford @scribefindegil , @impishnature

You guys were like the first blogs that I’ve followed. From your fics, analysis, AUs, art, I’ve developed more appreciation for gravity falls than ever. You guys inspired me to try my hand at fics, to create my own AUs. I just have to tell you this, because, well, it would feel weird to say this shout out to everyone without addressing the source. So thank you.

I wish I could list you all, every user and blog because there is just so much more out there. But I just want to say that, to everyone who has ever written fanfic, drawn fanart, and published their AU for the world to see, I have never felt more at home, more amazed, and more inspired than I do in the Gravity Falls Fandom. So thank you for making me feel so included.

anonymous asked:

Did you know someone mentioned Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship in a rap song? I don't know if the rapper is well known or not since I'm not really into the whole rap world, but it's interesting to seem them mentioned. I've not listened to the song, but it's called "FGE Cypher pt.3".

I think I forgot to say that they mentioned Deadshot as well.

Hey! 

Woah, that’s really cool! I was wondering if they’d been in any songs and now they are. Here are the lyrics : “My bitch crazy and I’m crazy I’m Joker she Harley Quinn I be all up in her water like tryna learn how to swim” 

and the Deadshot lyric: “Fresh as hell, be on point like Deadshot” 

I really don’t listen or like rap that much either so I probably would’ve never know this happened. So thanks for telling me! It’s actually really cool. 

fun fact about Heavydirtysoul: that drum solo in the intro is actually a very well-known sample from a 60s funk song!

it’s called the Amen break and is the most widely sampled piece of music in history - and a Google search told me it’s barely been mentioned in reference to Heavydirtysoul, so I thought I’d share for the 21p superfans who want to know the music history behind it. the Amen break is a 6-second drum solo loop that got picked up by the 80s electronica community and found its way into literally thousands of songs across multiple subcultures of music. for the longest time nobody knew where it came from, but it was eventually traced back to The Winstons’ song Amen, Brother from 1969

here’s the song that it came from - the drum track loops throughout it, but it can be heard most clearly at 1:26. cool, right?

Samuel Seo talks about Giriboy on HIPHOPPLAYA RADIO, June 2016

SAMUEL SEO: When Giriboy and I first met each other, we discussed about how we’ve been and our recent thoughts etc. And actually, DO:OM’s title was supposed to be 조현 for 조현증 (schizophrenia). I thought it was a little iffy to put the title as 조현증 so I was going to name it 조현. I wanted to write it like a letter to myself, it’s not a love song.

Giriboy thought it was cool after hearing it so then I said “Let’s do it together” and he agreed easily. Then he told me he’s going to remix it and name it LO:OP, then from his perspective I will feature for his song. We then decided to write the song on our own album like a letter to the other person. We purposely made it so people can listen to it both ways. Either LO:OP first then DO:OM or DO:OM then LO:OP. People can play both songs on repeat and both songs will connect to each other really well. The “doom doom doom” in the front part is my voice so it connects to the next song.

We also decided that since we are working together and going to release our own album soon so I will release my album first, so LO:OP can come out later when Giriboy releases his album as its remix song.

HIPHOPPLAYA RADIO (Don Mills & Nucksal): We didn’t know you and Giriboy are this close to each other.
SAMUEL SEO: We haven’t known each other for a long time yet though. I think it’s been 2 months? No, I think it’s not even 2 months. I think around 1 month +, since we just released our albums. Ddolbae-hyung was like “There’s a guy called Giriboy. I think both of you will click well as a friend and fellow music people.“ It was during a time where I was having a hard time so Ddolbae-hyung said he’s going to find me a friend. Aside from his popularity and all, Giriboy is a really good friend and we think similarly. Also, he doesn’t come out from his working studio at all. looking at that, I got motivated as well. He always gives new ideas, I think he’s really cool.

HIPHOPPLAYA RADIO (Don Mills & Nucksal): But you don’t even come out from your working studio either.
SAMUEL SEO: Still haha I went to the Just Music office and his studio is really cool with a lot of awesome equipments. I felt jealous.

HIPHOPPLAYA RADIO (Don Mills): I went to Just Music website and saw Giriboy’s busy schedule.
HIPHOPPLAYA RADIO (Nucksal): Giriboy-nim is one of the few idols in the hip hop industry now. (T/N: as in how busy Giriboy is going to gigs here and there)
SAMUEL SEO: Nowadays he is very busy. Apparently it is festival season now. Every time when we message, he always says he’s in the waiting room. But really, of all the people I know and are the same age as me, it’s my first time seeing someone having this much passion for music and working so hard for it.

HIPHOPPLAYA RADIO (Don Mills & Nucksal): You and Giriboy even have the same haircut.
SAMUEL SEO: I go to the same place as Cjamm.

Pennsylvania Food Part ½

Pennsylvania is one of the only states with a unique cuisine, most of which was brought over by German settlers during America’s colonization. Some of this food has made its way across America in the forms of snack brands and convenience stores. The following are some restaurants and brands that began or are based in PA. 

Food Wars

Wawa v Sheetz

The easiest way to tell if someone’s from PA is to ask them what gas station has the best food. If they’re from the west, they’ll say Sheetz. If they’re from the east, Wawa. And if they’re not from PA, they’ll tell you they don’t eat at a gas station. 

Snack Brands

Sturgis; Snyder’s of Hanover

Pretzels were first brought over by the Germans, and the first hard pretzels were actually made in PA by Sturgis in 1861. Both of these local PA companies have since expanded their brand to various sweet and salty pretzel snacks, as well as other snack food.

Herr’s, Martin’s, Utz

PA has a variety of local potato chip companies, but these three are the best known.

Candy

Hershey’s 

Hershey’s is of course America’s favorite and best known chocolate/candy brand. Milton Hershey established his company’s town in 1905 in Dauphin County. Hershey, PA is known for the Hershey factory, hotel, school, and amusement park, complete with Kiss-shaped street-lamps. It’s also famous for those singing cows, and I hope you’ve got that song stuck in your head, because you know I do. 

Wilbur Chocolate Company

Living in the shadow of Hershey is this small chocolate manufacturer in Lititz, PA. It makes cocoa products for sale to bakeries, as well a line of chocolates for consumers, including their famous Wilbur Buds.

Just Born

This Brooklyn candy company moved some of its operation to Bethlehem, PA in 1932. It’s famous for Mike and Ike’s, as well as Peanut Chews and Peeps, both of which were acquired from local PA candy companies after the move. Every New Year’s Eve, Just Born drops a large candy Peep in Bethlehem, as the local version of the Time’s Square ball. 

Boyer

This small candy company is famous for the Mallow Cup, marshmallow inside a chocolate cup. 

Gertrude Hawk

This gourmet chocolate manufacturer in Lancaster County probably provided your fundraising material if you went to school in PA. They have many retail stores across the northeast. 

Tastykake

They produce a wide variety of packaged baked good snacks, similar to Little Debbie or Twinkies. (But better)

Other brands

Primanti Bros. Restaurant

This Pittsburgh sandwich shop started as a sandwich cart in the 1930s, and has now expanded to over 30 locations across the northeast.

Heinz 

This ketchup brand is an American favorite that was founded in Sharpsburg, PA in 1869

Turkey Hill

Founded in 1931 by a bottled milk salesman, this family company eventually expanded into a dairy and ice creamery. This Lancaster County company is now owned by Kroger. Their ice cream is sold nationwide, and there are a few dairy stores across the northeast. Turkey Hill is also famous for their iced tea. 

A-Treat Bottling Company

Established in 1918 in Allentown, this soda company temporarily stopped production in 2015. Now back on the market, this soda is famous for its traditional manufacturing methods and products such as birch beer, root beer, and cream soda.

for your fluffy prompt request: cullrian + holiday sweaters (I know it's only October but i accidentally got a run of christmas songs when I put my mp3 on shuffle the other day and now i'm feeling unseasonably festive)

Sooooo you said holiday sweaters and my brain immediately went to inappropriate holiday sweaters. Hope that’s okay, ‘nonny!

Having a boyfriend not well-versed in Ferelden customs was difficult in a lot of ways, Cullen had known that would be the case going into it. They’d argued over everything from the proper side of the street to drive and walk on, how much spice was too much when Mia came to visit, how to make coffee and interior decoration. But never in his wildest nightmares had he imagined the situation he found himself in right now.

Cullen blinked and stared down at the sweater dangling from between Dorian’s black-laquered fingertips in horror. It was ugly, yes, the greens and reds a few shades too vibrant, approaching fluorescent but then there were those reindeer who were clearly… no. Surely not.

“Well?” Dorian asked impatiently, a bit breathlessly, almost like a kid waiting for permission to open his first Christmas present. He was grinning and Cullen forced himself to give a wan smile in return.

He squinted down at the reindeer again, hoping in the quick moment he’d turned away the reindeer would have started doing something more… well… reindeer-like. Frolicking in the snow and not frolicking like that.

No luck.

Maybe if he just closed his eyes for a minute and took a few deep breaths everything would be back to normal. A normal he understood. A normal that did not include either him or Dorian wearing a sweater with reindeer fucking emblazoned across the chest to his office’s Christmas party.

One. Deep breath, Rutherford.

Two. Everything’s going to be fine. You’re imagining things.

Three. Just… breathe.

He opened his eyes. The reindeer were definitely still having more fun than he was. 

“Dorian… those reindeer.” He rubbed at his temples and scowled. “They’re not… actually doing what I think they’re doing, right? Please tell me they’re not doing what I think they’re doing?”

Dorian’s silence was telling and his scowl deepened.

“Dorian…” He hissed, fingers fisting through his hair so tightly his scalp burned. “Please. I need you to tell me.

“Well…” He felt the soft press of Dorian’s mouth against his own tightly pursed lips and he almost softened, almost opened up for him until he glanced back down at the sweater and blanched, visions of Lavellan’s face if he walked into The Herald’s Rest wearing that monstrosity tonight flickering in front of his eyes. 

Dorian.”

“Really Amatus, it just depends on what you think they’re doing,” Dorian replied brightly, too quickly. Cullen glared as Dorian’s eyes lit nervously from him to the sweater to the far wall and back down to the floor.

“Well look, they’re certainly not having a knitting circle, I can tell you that much. So you’re safe on that count!” Dorian chanced a look back at Cullen, fidgeting with the fabric between his fingertips.

“That’s not what I thought they were doing and you know it,” Cullen growled as he sat heavily on the floor, fingers raking through his hair.

“Do you want to see the other one?” Dorian asked as he tossed the offending garment across the back of the couch and rummaged through the shopping bag sitting at his feet. 

“Ta da!” Dorian cried as he pulled a second sweater out and held it out in front of his face. 

Cullen rolled his eyes. “Yes, that’s so much better. A snowman massacre, charming. I especially like the one that’s spurting blood all over the Christmas tree.”

“Well you don’t have to sound so grateful that I went out and found these for us, Amatus,” Dorian huffed.

“You did hear me say that we had to wear these to my work Christmas party, right? Tell me you heard me say that.”

“Of course I did! You said we needed ugly Christmas sweaters for your work Christmas party. And I delivered, are these not absolutely hideous?”

Cullen would have admitted that Dorian had a point there - hideous was a massive understatement - had he not been too busy hyperventilating. 

“This is it,” he muttered between quick, shaky breaths. “I’m going to be fired. Lavellan is going to take one look at the both of us and that’ll be it. Good bye, thanks for a good couple of years but don’t let the door hit you on the way out. I’m going to get fired. And all over a stupid fucking sweater because my boyfriend can’t tell the difference between ugly and massively inappropriate. At least it’ll give Sera one last laugh at me. It’s a Tevinter thing. It has to be a Tevinter thing. Oh god… and why are you laughing this is not funny Dorian.

Dorian’s soft chuckle grew until he was doubled over with laughter, pink-cheeked and gasping for breath, his eyes tearing up. 

“Maker but your face, Cullen,” Dorian wheezed, stifling another fit of giggles. “So worth it.”

“I still entirely fail to see what is so amusing. And what’s worth it? Losing my job?” Cullen snapped. 

“You really thought I didn’t know any better. You actually did! ” Dorian grinned as he reached for a second shopping bag on the floor and tossed it straight at Cullen. “Here, idiot. The first ones are just for home.”

Cullen sighed in relief as he pulled out two incredibly ugly sweaters - one with Santa’s face and covered in tiny, tinkling bells and the other festooned with elves whose hats and shoes lit up when you pressed a button tucked into the cuff - turning to rest his face on Dorian’s chest. 

“I hate you so much, you know that right?” He whispered, grinning as he turned to look up at Dorian. “You’re absolutely going to be the death of me.”

“Mmmmm, probably,” Dorian hummed in agreement, leaning down to press a kiss into Cullen’s hair. “Oh, look! My favorite stupid Southern custom. Mistletoe!”

Cullen looked up to see Dorian holding a sprig above their heads, grinning hopefully down at him. 

“Forgive me, Amatus?”

“Never,” Cullen whispered with a soft smile, trailing his fingers through Dorian’s thick, dark waves before pulling him closer until their foreheads lightly touched, teasing at Dorian’s lips with his own. “Merry Christmas, my heart.”

Ok so i met niall and louis @glasto

honestly it was the most random thing in the world because if u go to their show or look for them particularly it’s maybe different cause ur sort of slightly prepared plus i’ve never seen them live anyway, but yeah i was literally just standing in the fan zone waiting for james bay to perform and since we were working as freelancers we could get up quite close to the stage for all the shows (except headliners) and for pyramid stage u can peek a little for backstage as well so yeah i was there casually smacking my face with a sun cream since the uk shocked us all with an unnaturally hot and dry weather and we all got super sunburnt anywaY my friend just leaned in and asked if those aren’t the guys from 1d and my heart dropped so low u have no idea cause i still associate 1d with zayn i mean i can’t help it and then the next thought was harry but ofc later i put the picture together and since niall adores james bay and apparently they had free dates on that weekend i figured it out later but yes so i don’t think they were supposed to walk by us cause barely anyone from the vips did??? And i assume it wasn’t safe either but god knows ?? but yeah they were walking really quickly and louis just walked past and then niall walked behind him and looked super pumped and then smiled at me and i’m guessing i looked kind of terrified so he just started to jump around even more thEN walking just right by us he said smth like ‘james is a brilliant guy isn’t he? Just brilliant mate’ i think i can’t recall precisely tbh and i just nodded dumbly and louis kept walking but niall kept looking back and then half yelled what was my favorite song of james and i said scars and he smiled even wider and said it was his as well and then asked his friend (body guard?) to hold his cup and ran back to high five me but i still had sun cream on my hand and i just waved it in the air and mumbled something god knows what but he just smiled and said ‘it’s ok i could use some of it as well’ and then high fived himself with my hand it was sO cute

Shamir (Electronic, disco, hip house)

PWR BTTM (queercore) (thanks for putting me onto them!)

Add anyone I’ve missed! I’m sure there are many more. (If I’m mistaken and any of these people are not non-binary feel free to message and let me know!)

Trying to convert my friends into Swifties:
  • Friend: Well, I will say that this Blank Space song is kinda catchy...
  • Me: OMG I know, right? Do you even realize how smart this song is it's satire that Taylor wrote about how the media portrays her incorrectly and also did you know Taylor has secret hidden messages on her cds? The capitalized letters spell out sentences and the one of Blank Space spells "There once was a girl known by everyone and by no one" WOW that is so deep she is just amazing, did you know this won Top Streaming Song at the billboard music awards she sets so many records--

eyyyyyyy its me again! I want to get a reaction of the bts member s/o begging them to try bachata (a hardcore well known Latin dance check it out with the song: Propuesta Indecente)

Wow that is a pretty and intense dance. Mad props to the dancers who do that!

Seokjin

He’d try it cause you asked and were so adorable when you asked. But he sucks at it and you both know it. Don’t make him.

He would seriously try at first. But he’s awkward.

Foreplay right? Basically right? For him it is. He’s ready to get his bachata on.

You showed him how to do it only a few times. Now he’d always ask you if you want to “practice”. He’d ruin it with his body rolls and not much would get done.

I don't know if someone has already said this but Chen and Sehun did a Special DJ thing a week ago and the first song they played was Just Do You by India Arie :) Even though I'm pretty sure they didn't pick the song, it's always cool to hear black artists being appreciated in Korea who aren't SUPER mainstream (Rihanna, Beyonce, Nicki) - Don't get me wrong, I love those three!

3:52

And also there’s a lot of well known Black music artists in Korea, not just those 3, there’s some underground, old school artists mention, I’ve even found a lot of new artists through K-Pop idols mentioning them! it’s amazing! ^_^

You know, had the Puni-chan song not been an established thing in the actual series outside of being the ending, had Eureka not sang it to Puni several times in the past, I would’ve probably simply called that scene a cop-out, but…fortunately that was not the case so I actually really liked it. This little kid went in hard, struggling to even raise her voice at first but ultimately succeeding in protecting her friend, just like the song lyrics said. Eureka really is a great character, and I will miss her.

Citroid’s death was also well handled imo, I mean we HAVE known it almost 3 years so even if it rarely appeared I did feel something seeing Citron shed tears for having to destroy his most prized creation. In addition to losing a friend it must’ve hurt his inventor’s soul immensely, though of course he was also proud for what it did in its final moments.

Of course, we know that Citron will be working on repairing it in a couple eps so depending on how that goes this scene might lose some of its impact. I would prefer the original Citroid’s memories to be gone for good even if Citron manages to recreate the body, that way something of value will have actually been lost.

Shout-outs to the fiend Zerosic for falling into a classic Lumiose Gym trap like Ash did in the very first XY episode, love that they brought that back. I also loved that Zerosic was bandaged up in the post episode segment due to taking the L, I appreciate humorous touches like that.

Seeing as Daigo only really fought fodder I can’t help but feel like Serena should’ve taken care of that, especially since Team Rocket took on the last remaining admin. But alas, I guess they just had to have Daigo play a role in this somehow, hopefully Serena will do more in the finale. Nevertheless, I was certainly glad to see the young God again if nothing else.

 (quick voice actor comment: even though I love Kenichi Suzumura I can’t help but feel like Takahiro Sakurai would be the most perfect fit for Daigo, whenever I read his dialogue in the games I immediately picture that voice in my head. But that’s just me, I certainly have no issues with SuzuKen’s version).

The battles in this ep were weak (especially the titular Citron VS Xerosic, though I did love how Luxray just bodied the two grunts before they even had a chance to call out their Mons, no mercy), but honestly I kind of expected that to be the case, with several plot points having to be addressed, good animation being already used up by the more important gym/league battles and the Flare finale (trailer shows that at least one of the eps will have Iwane), I didn’t think we’d really get quality battling for the whole arc, if even most of it. I was glad that the squad got to actually be out and fight the main villain for once, but alas, only Pikachu and Greninja remain now. Lysandre’s Mega Gyarados is ridiculously overpowered, being able to fend off all of these Pokemon including two Megas (one owned by an Elite-4) and Ash Greninja, makes sense that the “normal” Mons wouldn’t last too long. I like that Noivern at least got to save Pikachu.

Of course, the actual most upsetting scene in the ep was this. 

Goodnight, sweet bby bird prince. :[

Requested Swazz/John Swift Imagine:

Y/N POV

“So its booked?” I ask again confirming. “Yeah just make sure you are on time for it this time please” my manager pleads remembering a slight incident when I wrote the wrong time down and got to the place I was performing an hour late, people booed me. I sigh reassuring him as I hang up writing the time and place down on a little teddy bear post it and sticking it to my notice board in the hall way.

As I take aseat back on the couch I pull my laptop towards me googling `Musicon` (idk I made it up) tossed who else Will be performing at the festival like 3 day event. As I press enter Google returns a search quickly the top result being about some group calls the Omaha Squad. Interesting I think to myself pressing onto page about them. Quick summary they are some seriously cute guys. I Google each of them getting to know them icase I bump into them and do the same for all people that will also be performing there. Niget falls and im sat in the same position with my head phone in listening to Twenty-Fifteen, Skate Maloleys mixtape. These people are so talented I tHink to my self as I turn it off and head to bed.

-Day of the event-

“Wake up child you have 20 minutes to get ready you slept in” I hear as someone shakes me awake. I hold up my hand “please momma 5 more minutes” I beg into my pillow. All of a sudden my duvet is ripped from my body and my bare legs and arms are exposed to the cold air conditioned breeze drifting through the room. I am quickly awakened by the awful feeling. Shivering I jump up and walk towards the bathroom flipping off my room mate. I jump into the shower washing my body but leaving my hair and jump back out again wrapping a towel around my body. I walk back into my room too see my duvet done. Smiling I walk towards my closet. I fling open the doors as I think about what to wear.

Finally deciding on a baseball tee and shorts I them on and grab a beanie incase of bad hair and shove it n my bag. I decide to wear my glasses because I will be doing meet and greet and some fans cry and which makes me cry and my contacts fall out. Grabbing my shoes and flinging them down the stairs, I follow with a small suitcase in hand and walk towards the kitchen to grab some breakfast but before I am able to I hear a car horn. Groaning I grab my shoes and pulling them on and walk towards the front door pulling it open to see my manager waiting for me. Grabbing my suitcase, I slam the door shut, locking it as I walk towards the car hopping in shotgun. “Atleast you are on time” he tells me as he sets off down the road, on the highway, to the place it is being held. I put in my headphones for the quiet ride drifting to sleep against the window. I am slowly shaken awake as I look around at New surroundings. Its an openish field with a small hotel behind a big stage. I stare at jitter in awe as I hope put of the car, my backpack in hand. Its bigger than any place ive performed at before. “Right ive taken you luggageto your room which you have to share with another person who is performing here because they want to keep you all on one floor for security reasons” he tells me and I nod. He hands me my Keu and I slip it into my bag as he motions for me to follow him.

I march behind him backstage where he introduces me to the runner of the event. “Oh its nice to meet you. My daughter lives you so when your manager here called to see if you could perform I accepted without hesitation. Either way its your turn to uncheck in around 10 minutes why don’t ypu go warm up your voice.” She orders. Not knowing where to go I walk over to a couch and fall onto I as I Start my vocal exercises.

-during sound check-

Johns POV

“SAM STOP FUCKING AROUND YOU ARE GOING TO B-” I start but stop when what I predicted happens and a speaker falls and crashes onto the ground. Sam looks up confused from his position on the floor where he fell. He ju,ls up icing up the speaker and putting back in place before taging a seat on couch next to me. “Told you” I say as he pulls out his phone his face still red. We are both glued to our phones when we hear someone singing, we both look towards the direction of the stage then back at Wachovia other at the same time before both jumping up and sprinting towards the stage, pushing to get there first. As we approach the side of the stage a short, **** (your hair colour) com’s into view. Shes sitting at the edge pf the stage her Legs dangling as she sings with someone. The person shes singing with turns around, its Kenny. Hes smiling a her while she sings. Sam taps my shoulder before walking towards them.

“You have an amazing voice, im Sam” he tells her. Squinting because of the sun she looks up at him, her face still not visible to me. “hey, I know who you are and I love your song Aye Ma” she compliments him, her speaking voice just as sweet as her singing. I watch as Sam chuckles sitting down with them. I don’t hear what they are saying but they start singing again. This time its a well known song, Baby by Justin Bieber. I watch intently but in a non creepy way as she sings. How she rests her hand on her stomach and how she grips the microphone so hard her knuckles turn white. Smiling I walk away even though I haven’t seen her face yet.

Everyone is setting up for the show as the VIPs are allowed for the q&a with all of the people who are performing today. Me and Nate walk down together as I check twitter and quickly favoriting a snapchat from earlier of me and Sam. As we approach the stage I am so engagedin my phone that I don’t notice someone running towards me before slamming straight into my chest. I am pushed back a little but whoever ran into me headbuts me before falling back onto their bum. Next to me Nate starts laughing while I look towards whoever I hit. Its a girl, a beautiful one at that. As I go down to help her up she gets up walking her head into my nose falling into the ground again. Standing again I grab my nose swearing under my breath. The girl jumps up and touches my hand wanting to see my nose. I let her see as I feel something running down my face. “Fucking hell, I am so sorry, he was chasing me and I didn’t see you. Your nose is bleeding…come with me” she babbled as she pinches my nose hard. “Owwww calm down with the pinching little lady” I tell her as the pain makes my eyes water. “Well sorry but you don’t need blood on such a nice vest now do you” she tells me pulling me by my nose towards the couches. She grabs a box of tissues off of the table and she shoves me down on it. She pushes me head up wiping it first. She then pinches it again, pushing my head further back. I wince through the pain. She grabs a water bottle and puts some on a tissue cleaning me up.

“Done” she tells me accomplishment in her voices as she releases my head. “Thanks imma go wash my hands” I tell the girl not recognising her face but immediately recognising her voice. “Oh and you ha-” I don’t finish my sentence because Sam walks up and starts attacking her, looking for something. Getting up walk to the bathroom to wash my hands before walking back out to see we are all being called on stage for a the q&a. Around 15 of us pIle stage. 10 chairs were there sp some people had to sit on the stage. I am ne of those unfortunate people as I go and sit by the Jack’s ad Nates feet. I lower to the ground stretching my legs out infront of me, as someone takes a seat next to me. “Where are you, you Srebrenica meant to be here you Fuck boy” the now instantly recognisable voice speaks into her phone.

“Are you kidding me? You beg for so long at ditch me for that whore” she speaks angrily into her phone. “Fuck you” she says hanging up and slamming her phone down on stage. She looks over at me and smiles. “Hi again, I wont hurt you this time. Im Y/N” she chirps. “John” I tell her. “I know but either way hey” she laughs out as the questions begin.

So far most the questions have been to the more popular musicians but we have all answered quite a few questions each. To my surpRISE I am asked another, “my questions for Swazz and its do you have a girlfriend or a crush right now?” A cute blonde girls me. I shake my head “none of either I don’t think but there’s this girl whee caught my attention, not sure if I like her yet though” I state, smiling at her. People behind me start oohhhing. Ignoring it we carry on with the q&a. Someone then asks Y/N the same question. “I just broke up with Grayson after 2 years because hes a little Dickweed, sorry children. And im not exactly ready to jump in with someone else yet” she tells the audience. Grayson? Guessing that is her ex. I feel little disappointed but Atleast shes single I think to myself.

-during actual show-

Me an Nate have just finished outrage 3 songs and have just come off stage sweating. “Nate you were amazing, way better live” Y/N complimentshim ad he grins. “Well its your turn now, so don’t disappoint” I tell her as she gets ready tk go on stage. She breathes a few times before running out onto the stage as her song begins. She walks around the stage interacting either fans and getting them to sing along with her.

Y/N POV

The whole crowd was joining in and it was my last song and I decided I wanted to bring a fan of mine on stage for my last song. I look down,scanning the crowd and see a withholding a sign saying that I saved her which makes me smile so I run to the side of the stage to ask securityto being her upon stage. Moments later a crying shocked teenager is brought up to me. Smiling I go Greet and and get her to join in my last song with me.

–after show back at hotel–

I feel so tired as I stumble around my hotel room looking for my phone, finally finding it on the floor I go and jump into the double bed rather than the small single. Feeling pleased with myself I start to drift off, hugging my huge teddy into me, somebody bursts in through the door shouting another few voices following them instantly ruining my sleepiness. “FUCK YOU MAN” I scream out of frustration for not being left to sleep. “Calm down baybeeee” Someone shouts back. Recognising the voice, I sit up. “Dafuq you call me boy” as Sam jumps on the bed with me “hey why you in my room” I ask him and the others that I now recognise, as he attacks my teddy. “ "we are all forced to share with random people who are sleeping and we thought Johns room mate might be nice enough to still be awake so we can chill for a lil bit.” Jack Johnson tells me. I don’t really know him, I mainly know Sammy. The other 2 people were John and Nate. “Right well I was going to sleep before you Fuck boys walked in but you are more than welcome to chill” I say putting quotations Around the word chill. “Good coz we wrestled going to wake you anyways f you were asleep because we have got anywhere else to chill in this tiny hotel and we aren’t aplowed to leave the floor.” Feeling for them nod my head letting them do whatt they gotta.

“Sam get off my fucking teddy, you giving it boy germs” I screech while he is kissing it. “Gimmie” I continue pulling on it. Sam being stronger is able to keep it. John howevercomes to my rescue as he pushes Sam off of the bed letting me get my teddy back. Quickly snatching it back I shove it under the duvet on my stomach. “Thanks roomie” I tell him as he sits on the end of my bed. “So why is it you get the bigger bed?” He questions me, smiling.“basically I got to the room first, so you boyfrieeeennnnd get last choice” I tell him smirking. “Actually I got to this room before yon and my luggage is under this bed already and under that pillow is my laptop.” He gives me a new pieceof information. I check and he right. “Awhh sorry, you can sleep here if you want” I tell him getting out of the bed. Quickly regretting it when I remember I am just in some tight girl boxers.

“Damn Lil MA, that butt” Nate compliments. I roll my eyes at him.John however is the only one that is looking down. “Nah you can sleep in it” he tells me and I jump back in. “Thanks” I tell him.

“I know I said we could chill but Im tired so you 3 know where through door is, now use it” he tells them.“oh so you want her to yourself, we get it bye” Johnson says wwalking OuT after sassily flipping his nonexistent hair. Nate shaking his head follows him out. “Just so you know John got a crush on you” Sam whispers in my ear before jumping over the bed and out of the room. I smile at myself, hes cute burning not ready for another relationship yet. Forgetting whether said I snuggle into the bed and try to get back to sleep.

Johns POV

“Imma go shower” I tell her as i leave for the bathroom. Shes so beautiful and I want to ask her out on a date, nothing serious yet. I tell myself. “WHERE” she shouts from the bedroom. I realise I was talking out loud and That tbhe door was still open. “Park and subway tomorrow” I shout back. “Pick me up at 3” she shouts back. YES BITCHES I mentally cheer. “Shut up im trying to sleep”

Some Thoughts...

I think Taylor’s scared to be herself, her TRUE self. Her whole teenage life, she was told how to be…by her mom…by her label…now its by a majority of her fans needing her to be hetero. She’s so used to hiding, and the kind of courage it takes to be raw and honest is something she either will (a) acquire because she’s tired of living a lie or (b) will never have because she’s THAT scared. When I was a kid, there was a rollercoaster in town that I wanted to go on called “The Ring of Fire”. The thing was huge and it took you upside down. At first when I saw it, it didn’t look scary at all, but as I waited in line, it suddenly dawned on me that this was going to be terrifying. As I saw person after person puking afterward, I almost bailed and didn’t go, but I stuck it out and got there, and you know what? I loved it! Taylor is in that line, along with quite a few other closet gay celebs. Yes, the rollercoaster is scary, but what’s even scarier is never truly being yourself. You know why we all feel like we know Taylor? Because she makes us feel like we do. Its a business. She’s a business. For her to come out jeopardizes her business and brand. However, for her to stay closeted, she WILL eventually sink. What do I mean? Sheep don’t stay 14 forever. This kids will discover some new band or singer and leave…Taylor might as well come out and have her happiness, be known and loved for her honesty, eventually become a song writer while Karlie does either coding or fashion (or a bit of both), the two of them will always be socialites…heck, they might even get a reality TV show out of it…but she should have her happily ever after.

so some of the hiccstrid fandom seeks answers from the netflix panel

well there relationship evolves in one clip there shown sitting together watching the night sky then in another clip astrid takes a blow for hiccup against a new dragon known as song dragon with the clip ending with hiccup saying astrid! i said nice way to end the clip sigh.. i wish someone took video of that panel like when jay and dean were at wondercon last year i know alot of fans have gripes with the show but its the glue that ties together with the movies every moment they share gets us closer to where we see them in httyd2 relationships take time to build up and personally i liked there moments in the first 2 seasons oh btw dagur is back
