The concert in Portland was amazing! About 45 minutes before the concert my friend and I were in our seats when we saw Zack walking towards us. He said hi and asked if we wanted to meet Brendon. My heart literally stopped beating. Obviously we said yes and Zack brought us backstage. Brendon was so sweet and he hugged me like four times and I was so happy. Apparently my dad’s best friend had planned this a couple weeks ago. Also, before Brendon played This Is Gospel he said “Before I start I would like to dedicate this next one to Christian (my father who died a couple of months ago) and his awesome family and friends that I got to meet backstage, you guys are very fucking awesome” I was in tears and I thought it was so kind of him. Again, the show was amazing and honnestly it was probably the best night of my life.
Summary: You and Tom meet at Comic Con while you’re both promoting your new movies
A/N: I saw The Lost City of Z today and almost died because it was so good. It’s literally my favorite book of all time and when I found out Tom was going to play Jack is almost cried.
Tom and the rest of the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast were in the middle of an interview when she first caught his eye. She was dressed in a blue floral dress when he saw her. Tom tried to keep his focus on answering the questions but his attention kept diverting to her smile. Her smile was the most enchanting smile he had ever seen and she had the most kind eyes of anyone he had ever met.
She was crouched next to a little girl and appeared to be singing. Although Tom couldn’t hear her, he knew she had to have the voice of an angel.
“So, Tom, got your eye on anyone?”
Tom snapped his head back over to the interviewer who was smiling at him.
Tom stayed quiet for a moment as he looked at Zendaya for help who simply giggled at the boy in distress.
“Um, I-uh… I don’t know. There’s one girl who I recently saw and thought was beautiful. But I haven’t had the chance to introduce myself to her yet…”
Tom could feel his cheeks heating up as the rest of the cast ooo'ed at his response.
Tom looked up to Harrison who was smirking at him.
Tom turned his gaze back to look for her, but she was gone. Tom felt like he was going to have a panic attack if he didn’t find her soon.
Luckily for him, the interview ended and he had 1 hour before their panel started. 1 hour to find the mystery girl.
Tom frantically looked around the mountains of people for the dark haired girl in the light blue floral dress. Tom prayed to whatever god was up there that he would find her and find her soon.
Tom was abducted from his prayers by a familiar voice calling his name.
He turned his head to see friendly blue eyes looking back him.
“Hey, kid. It’s been a while.” Sebastian said as he smiled sweetly at Tom.
Although they joked about having a rivalry, they were actually quite fond of each other.
“Oh, hey Seb. Sorry, I just saw this girl earlier and I’m trying to find her.”
“Oh? What’d she look like?”
“Ummm… dark hair, kind eyes, beautiful smile, she was wearing a light blue dress with yellow, black and white flowers on it.”
“I think I know who you’re talking about. Her name’s Y/N. She’s the voice of the new Disney princess. She’s probably in the break room, honestly. Or maybe try and find her booth?”
Tom nodded and took off towards the break room.
“Okay, bye, I guess…” Sebastian mumbled as he watched the lovesick boy run away from him.
Tom could hear people yelling his name for pictures, but he ignored all of them. He felt horrible for neglecting his fans, but he had to find her.
Tom finally reached the break room and saw the same beautiful smile from before as she read from a book of fairytales.
Everything felt like slow motion for Tom as he approached where she was sitting.
Tom had normally been good at talking to girls, but as soon as her e/c eyes met his, he felt hopeless.
His throat ran dry and he could hear his heart pounding in his chest while his stomach did cartwheels inside of him. He felt like he was no longer in reality, but placed in a fictional world of romance like in the movies his mom always watches.
Tom suddenly become aware of how much time had passed of him staring when he noticed her smile beginning to drop.
“Hi? Can I help you with something?”
And that was it. Hearing her voice. Her voice was as smooth as velvet and as beautiful as a sunset over an ocean.
Tom swallowed the lump in his voice and counted to three before blurting out a hello.
The beautiful smile returned to her face as she greeted him once again.
Tom’s cheeks heated up again.
“I’m Tom. I uh, I saw you earlier and I-I just, um-”
“He thinks you’re really pretty!”
Tom whipped around to see Sebastian standing at the door smirking, obviously enjoying the torture that the poor boy was in.
“Oh… is that true?”
Tom turned back to look at Y/N with wide eyes. He slowly nodded and felt his cheeks grow warmer if that was even possible.
Y/N smiled up at him before grabbing a notepad from the tables and a pen.
“Well, if that’s the case, maybe when you learn how to speak properly, you can give me a call.”
Y/N handed Tom the piece of paper that contained her phone number.
Tom smile brightly at Y/N before he heard them calling for the Spider-Man Cast to head to their panel.
“Maybe after this is over, I can take you to dinner? Would that be okay?”
Trying to record as much from Seacon as I can remember for you guys, since you keep sending me asks about con moments. Here’s a heart-melting Jensen story:
The girl immediately in front of me in the op line for Jensen on Sunday had a little girl about JJ’s age. I was watching his face while I was in line the whole time, and he looked kind of tired and the ops were moving quickly so I sort got the impression that he was just going through the motions that morning. But when he saw this little girl, he just lit up. Eye crinkles and all. He kind of bent down with his hands on his knees and grinned at her and asked, “Hey! Can I pick you up? Do you want to be picked up?” in this higher pitched voice and she was like, “Ok” really quietly. So he scooped her up onto his hip and grinned real big for the picture.
When he put her down, she tried to walk away but he kept talking to her. The ops literally stopped for a long moment so he could have some more time chatting to this little girl. It was sO CUTE AND I WAS SMILING SO BIG by the time I stepped up for my op.
(He really wanted to hold this kid, ok. He saw a baby and he was like GIMME.)

A little birthday gift from me to you. ^^ Happy Bday!! Just kinda doodled what popped into my head. I love the stories you tell and I just wanted to show it. Sorry if it’s real messy and sketchy. Don’t know if I’ll have the time to finish it anytime soon, but here you go!
OH MY GOSH AHHHHHHH!!! THIS!! It’s so beautiful thank you!!!!!!!! D:
Wow literally almost cried when I first saw this!! I would KILL to see this finished or even colored! It’s so clever and amazing dude!!! I honestly adore the way you drew sabe the most AGH his wings and his hair!!!
Y u makin me cri like dis ?? ;___;
The staging of the scene and the books, papers etc is just SO GOOD. setting this as my phone wallpaper even without color tbh !! XDDD
I’m not usually one to shit on other people’s ships but like.. I started following some stanfou blogs cause I’m a slut for some happy canon gays and also beauty and the beast is cracking but apparently a lot of these people ship gafou as well. okay, that’s fine. but also I have never had such a notp. like I say, I’m not one to tell people what to ship but I’ve just got to rant because you know what gaston is?? you know what the wonderful gay man howard ashman, a gay man who died of aids, created gaston as??? a manifestation of toxic masculinity and homophobia. gaston exists to demonstrate the fear held by lgbt+ people of homophobic manly men who literally kill lgbt+ people every day. and now we get the lovely new lefou who is more of a real person and switches sides! who realises what a shitstain gaston is!! who sings “there’s a beast running wild there’s no question, but I fear the wrong monster’s released” when gaston leads the attack on the castle!! who dances with a man who we earlier saw enjoy dressing in drag (and who is played by a gay actor I believe)!!!! and gaston still dies. this film shows us a canonically gay man moving away from toxixc masculinity and overcoming homophobia (both of which are represented by gaston), and both of these things ultimately being defeated as gaston dies. when disney first created beauty and the beast, howard ashman partly created the beast to show how, although people were vastly homophobic, believing hideous things about gay men (they were predators, perverts), there was kindness and softness there that no one wanted to see. the message of beauty and the beast is that passing negative judgement just because that’s what society says you should do is very wrong, and even those who seem so different from you are just human, really. beauty and the beast is, at its heart, a message of hope for lgbt+ people. it was the final work of a gay man who was dying as he wrote it. an integral part of the hope is that homophobia is defeated. the remake actually furthered this! with lefou being announced as canonically gay and actually taking steps to remove himself from the toxic and EVIL gaston!! the representation of homophobia!! but people still insist on shipping them because they have close contact and at first lefou likes gaston and lefou is gay as fuck. and it just grinds my goat because it feels a little like spitting on howard ashman’s legacy.
I don’t know why I made this. I’m not telling you what to ship, I’m not saying don’t ship it, I know I can block it if I don’t like it yadah yadah yadah (although I am a mobile blogger so I.. can’t really block things…) but like I say - I’m not asking you not to ship it! do what you want, have fun, if you like gafou then ship away. I just think that more people should be aware of the importance of gaston and him being a villain. a lot of shipping him with the lovely lefou makes him kinder and forgivable. homophobia is not forgivable. gaston is not to be forgiven.
I’m not dictating, do ship what you want to ship.
tldr; I guess I just think it jars that so many people want to ship lefou - one of disney’s first gay characters, a character with such development and progression in this film - with the physical manifestation of homophobia. particularly when stan is right there like come on guys let the gay boys be happy.

I saw a positivity blog post something about how the asexual flag was one of the most aestethically pleasing ones in the community because they had seen a gross comment about how it was ugly, and literally all the notes were filled with exclusionists saying "I cant believe you would post this when the creator of the lgbt flag died" even though it had nothing to do with that??
Are exclusionists ok? Having such a giant victim complex really isn’t good for their blood pressure.
This is what I gave to Ed the last time I saw him: it’s his own one-of-a-kind custom version of Monopoly! It took many months to design and create from scratch, but it was a fun project to work on, and he really liked it. :D
I did all the art and design work myself, and my sister who is a professional book artist built the box and gameboard using my designs. I’m so lucky she agreed to help me! We were both so pleased with how it turned out.
Ed literally said, “I’m so excited!” when I gave it to him, and then we sat down on the floor and looked at all the pieces together. (That middle photo is him telling me I should be designing things for a living, which is just so flattering considering I didn’t even know I could do this stuff until I started doing it for him.)
He went around the board and read all the names of the properties out loud, haha. It was so cute! He was particularly amused by the “Stuart’s Couch” space and called Stuart over to see it. The whole time, he kept going, “This is sick! This is so amazing!” <3
The little backpacks and sofas take the place of houses and hotels in the game. (So, technically you could build a sofa on Stuart’s sofa, which I think is funny.) The backpacks are jewelry charms I ordered from China and painted green with nail polish. And I sculpted each of the sofas from polymer clay and baked them in my oven, which made my house smell funny. The orange and green dice came from a specialty gaming vendor at Dragon*Con this year, and the Simpsons, Hobbit, Shrek, and Pokemon player tokens were all eBay purchases. At first Ed said he would always choose to be Blinky, the three-eyed fish from the Simpsons, but then he discovered the Pikachu token and, like, simultaneously burst into tears and orgasmed, so I figure his face was worth the stress of that eBay bidding war. Fact: A well-placed Pikachu will always make Ed Sheeran cry. ;)
If I could change anything about the game now, it would be to redo the money. When I first designed it, Murray was still part of the tour, Graham and the Sing puppet seemed more relevant, and Kevin hadn’t been hired yet. But Ed was still amused by it, I think. He even called Mark over to show him that he was on the 50. Mark laughed, but then he was like, “Only 50?” Each person has a quote on their bill, and Ed read those out loud too, but he stopped and just sort of giggled when he got to his own and didn’t read that one out loud. I’d probably change it to something about being pregnant with steak. Right now it says, “You don’t even look at me when we make love anymore,” which made me laugh at the time that I put it on there, but now I sort of wonder if he even remembers saying it. He might just think I’m weird.
Ed thought the radio stations instead of train stations was a clever idea, yay. And I was so glad to see that he seemed really entertained by the Chance and Community Chest cards! (In his game, they’re called Plus and Multiply cards. For reasons.) They’re all things that have really happened to him, like doing that icecream eating contest or being one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. When he read the one about a bottle of Nandos peri-peri sauce shattering in his backpack, he was like, “Do you know that story?!” which I thought was funny because… it would sure be a hell of a coincidence if I put it on one of the cards and didn’t know it… but it was so cute that he asked and then shook his head mournfully like he still has regrets about it to this very day. Oh, Ed. You’re my favorite. :)
Giving this gift to Ed was one of my favorite things I have ever done in my life. He was so happy! I’ve always said my ideal job would be Santa Claus because I love giving people presents, but honestly I don’t think I have ever enjoyed it more than that night. Look at his face! That smile! It makes my heart grow three sizes! It’s probably a good thing I don’t see him more often because I’m sure I’d spoil the boy absolutely rotten if given the opportunity.
Sorry for such a long post. I’ll stop with the pictures now… after this one.
(You can see where Jamie Lawson mentioned the game at the BBC in [this video] and Ed talked about it with Buzzfeed [here].)
Listen, I loved, loved, loved that scene where Rick apparently died. Not because I thought it was the best thing ever (hello dumpster) but because of how Danai presented Michonne freezing. I swear, you literally saw the light going out of her eyes. And when she realized that he was alive and ran to him…I believed it. I was there. My god, this was beautiful.
