  • “ugh i know shes such prep”
  • okay so root has like this quasi gothic/emo thing going on
  • swoopy bangs

  • she starts the black nail polish in middle school, only it’s also sharpie.
  • just black sharpie fingernails constantly
  • and then she starts to use white out too
  • alternates each nail
  • or colors them black and tries to make little hearts and skulls in white out
  • and then you have shaw
  • the resident garbage can
  • showers like three days a week, constantly looks likes she rolled out of a dumpster
  • tries to make her hair into a mohawk every damn day
  • wakes up an hour early to try every morning
  • buys like 30 dollars in product a week

  • her poor parents. they’re so tired all the time
  • ripped dirty jeans that are probably her older cousins at some point

  • but she cuts the sleeves off
  • she gives herself little tattoos too and tells people they’re real
  • and again, doesn’t shower to preserve the art
  • you cant have those sweet tatts fading
  • root and shaw meet in english class in sixth grade
  • shaw’s sitting in the back looking very dramatic and angry while listening to mcr
  • aggressively tapping her feet and mouthing the lyrics and doing a little touch up on her wrist tattoo

  • it’s true love
  • after a few weeks of exchanging weird middle school gifts and sitting next to each other at lunch shaw’s like
  • “do you wanna hang out after school. we could like. go to the mall.”
  • and they go to the mall and to hot topic and browse for three hours and flirt terribly and don’t buy anything because their parents aren’t here and they don’t have money
  • shaw tries to fight a prep the know from school for making fun of root’s hair and they get kicked out
  • remember those weird rubber bracelets that all had different meanings? they totally exchanged those. gauged their relationship in colored rubber bands
  • then they walk to the 7/11 and get slurpees and candy
  • shaw buys to let root know shes serious
  • shaw’s mom picks them up a little bit later and they go back to shaw’s house and hang out more
  • “ugh i’m sorry about my mom shes so /embarrassing/”
  • “i know sam, parents are the worst.”

  • “ugh no way. dances are for preps. plus the music would suck.”
  • “oh cool. do you wanna hang out at my place instead?”
  • root grins because shes got like 5 cds in her backpack that she wants to show shaw

  • root helps shaw with math, shaw helps root with history
  • shaw’s like, i wanna play a song for you
  • she fucking plays ohio is for lovers by hawthorne heights

  • shaw’s finishes the song, panting a little bit because being a rock star is hard work
  • roots speechless
  • this is just like in her fanfics
  • “so. um. did you like it?”
  • and root carefully takes the guitar out of shaw’s hands and sets it on the stand
  • and tackles shaw’s face with her own face
  • nearly breaks her nose
  • eventually they run out of air
  • and pull back
  • it’s gay and then they hug and just don’t let go of each other for a while and its very pure and gay
