i love this band a whole lot

I don’t want to stay alive to get an education, or to be clever, or to get lots of money and spend it on lots of things. I don’t want to stay alive to drive a shiny car and get an A+ on my exam paper. I don’t want to stay alive to become famous or successful and have the whole world know my name.
I want to stay alive to fall in love, to have sex, to kiss another girl, to see things and take pictures. I want to stay alive to spend time with my family, to find new people and learn to love them. I want to stay alive to get scars and marks and tans and tattoos of memories, of places I’ve been and people I’ve met.
I want to stay alive to live.
I don’t want to stay alive to live that platonic life society built up for me. I’d rather die, and I have the scars to prove it.

Carmilla Fanfiction Favorites of Mine

MULTICHAPTER

Music To My Ears by Latchingontoyou

Sum: A highschool AU where the whole cast are all in band and orchestra and have their own secrets. The music unites them all in the end where they all become friends that help each other through the trials of growing up. Carmilla and Laura teach each other that love can help anyone survive even through the worst. A lot of angst and fluff. Not smuf. But there is a sequel with smuf. This series has made me cry and laugh spontaneously. It’s beautifully written and I would reread it again.

Find Me Through The Radio is the sequel to this, and it’s a lot of angst and it’s oh so wonderful. Warning: Both of these with kill you with fluff. Make sure to have kleenexs on hand.

Well That Was Unexpected by HollisteinFF

Sum: I really like this author, they have more works that I will mention because they are so good. This story is alot of smuff with some fluff and a plot that creeps up on you and turns into a mystery. It all starts out when Carmilla gets dragged into a strip club with her brother and she spots a small innocent looking honey haired woman that, ironically, goes by the name Honey, who she finds out is actually Laura. They start going on different escapades as they make their way through each other lists of fantasies, until Carmilla finds out that Laura may not be who either of them thought she was. There is also a sequel to this that I have yet to read, Unexpected Consequences by BloodandPaper, HollisteinFF

Good Enough by HollisteinFF

Sum: (This is a fanfic version of the movie Cruel Intentions. It’s beautifully done.) Like I said before, this author is amazing! This about Laura being a music prodigy and she gets accepted into a prestigious school, but before she goes her father decides that she needs to go out and do something besides just music. So he gets her to go to cheerleading camp where she ends up meeting a certain broody girl that has the whole camp of girls in the palm of her hands. (Literally. There’s lots of smuff) This certain brood also happens to be Laura’s new roommate. Which for the entirely too tightly wound blonde, may be the worst or best possible thing to happen to her. In the end they realize they may not be so different after all and that they both have issues. They show each other that love is possible and they can get through anything. Btw you’re in for a huge shocker in the end, and you’ll never expect it. So please grab some kleenexs.

Finding Real Love by KarnsteinRosenberg

Sum: Carmilla is royalty that forced into a life of obligations when at a very young age of 12 she was snatched away from the life she had grown to love. She learns that she must become true to her new self and accept it as the new heir to the throne.

Laura is a princess, who cares for her sickly father who just wants his little girl to be safe and in desperate times decides she needs to marry her off. The two girls lifes collide and they realize that they will need to work together in order to survive what has become their duties and responsibility for their kingdom. A really great story!! The only thing that I could complain is that english isn’t the author’s first language, but they do a good job otherwise. I read so much of this story in just one sitting. There’s 69(teehee) chapters full of angst, smuff, and fluff.

Where Your Treasure Is, There Will Be Your Heart There Also by churchofyourcurves

Sum: If you didn’t realize it from the title and the hint at Lily’s grave, this is a Harry Potter AU in which Laura and Carmilla and the rest of the cast are all wizards and witches that have grown into powers that require them to go to Hogwarts to learn about their abilities. Along the way Laura’s journalism desires get them all digging into things they probably shouldn’t until they all slowly unravel the secrets the school has to offer. This is a really nice twist for those that fell in love with the Harry Potter series and also enjoy reading about the Carmilla characters. Enjoy! Also when you’ve made it through (you’ll need lots of kleenexs with this one as well) all of the teenage angst, and fluff, (no smuff) then please buckleup creampuffs for the sequeal that it also has to provide. Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, Gladly Beyond.

Under Cover of Darkness by Heligena

Sum: Laura tries to sneak into the dorm that she shares with her broody vampire roommate. She comes home with injuries that she’s sporting from a long night and she doesn’t want to have to explain any of it to Carmilla. Her plan backfires when her roommate hears her shuffling around, and she ends up having to explain everything that eventually leads up to them unraveling the mysteries of the happenings that are taking place at the Silas University. All while they try and pretend they aren’t using it as an excuse to spend more time with each other.

This fanfiction is incredibly well written and has alot of mystery written into it that is nice to see along with hollistein. I feel like it really stays true to the actual show and what it had brought forth to all of us, but this is much darker and will not be easy on you. It has everything you could want in the story. Expect more good things from this author. This was beautiful.

Kept by Bodylikeabattleaxe

Sum: A zookeeper AU in which Carmilla is a Big Cat keeper and Laura works with the cute and fuzzy animals. They end up having to work together despite their differences in their job titles, and begin to see that you shouldn’t judge someone by their covers. This is a cute story that shows you the life of a zookeeper, but also shows you that love can be simple. It also can sneak up on you unexpectedly. Being a zookeeper can tug your heart in many different ways, so please creampuffs be prepared. But don’t worry, Hollstein will get us through it in the end. This has angst, fluff and smuff.

Fool’s Gold by whatsthedamage

Sum: I don’t think there is a creampuff left that hasn’t read this Highschool AU, but it’s always a honorary mention in my books. But this is about Carmilla and Laura going through highschool trying to figure out what they want, and come on people we all know that they are going to end up together, so why is it always so difficult for them to figure that out. Watch as these teenagers do everything in their power to avoid what everyone wants! Erjgh! Also this has to be one of my favorites for the simple implications of The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. Yes, thank you so much for that!!! :D

Absolution by lordvoldyfarts

Sum: This has alot of smuff and makes me so happy they way they supplied it in context to plot and angst. Carmilla has to witness her roommate with her girlfriend, Danny Lawrence, everyday and all she can think about it how she so doesn’t care. Nope. It doesn’t bother her at all. She just can’t stop thinking about the little ball of sunshine, but it still doesn’t mean anything. That is until she realizes it means everything. Carmilla decides that she’s going to wait for the right moment and swoop in to get the girl of her dreams.

The Kind of People You Meet On Airplanes by alterocentrist

Sum: More of a short story, but not really. Carmilla and Laura end up sitting next to each other on an airplane. They are complete strangers that are in for a huge surprise. Inspired by David Levithan’s “The Number of People You Meet on Airplanes”. But please don’t go and read that short story before you read this fanfic. This fanfic is more of a short novella, but please read it so your little gay heart’s can get the well deserved break from all of the angst I had thus supplied. This one is an imagining of what might happen when you sit next to a stranger on a airplane. You never know who you might meet. Expect the unexpected.

Also there is a sequel to this one as well!  "Now We’re There, and We’ve Only Just Begun" Oh how I love sequels! It’s also so hard to give up on such a good story. Isn’t that why we are all here reading fanfics? ;)

Pandemic by Puntrest

Sum: An apocalyptic story where a virus breaks out and the whole cast have to stay in a facility, Silas, to survive the plague of the outbreak. They are the survivors and their sole purpose is to help find the cure for the others that exist outside of the walls. Laura and Carmilla have become roommates that know nothing about the other and Carmilla is determined to keep it that way even as determined as her roommate can be about trying to find out what really is going on within the walls of the Silas facility.

This is a really cute story that feels like I am also reading a zombie outbreak twist, but it’s not at all. It just has alot of mystery and plot twists that I solely enjoy. The love story between the two is really a nice break for all of the angst that builds up as well.

My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose by peerieweirdo

Sum: Carmilla and Laura both own stores across from one of each other. One day Carmilla hears the store next to her making an obnoxious amount of noise while in preparation for them opening up, which prevents her from sleeping at night. Running out of patience, she decides to take matters into her own hands and find out what all the ruckus is. Little did she know that such a small woman could make so much noise and turn her world upside down.

One is a floral shop and the other is a tattoo parlor. You’ll never guess who owns which.

Emancipation by ceceash

Sum: In a world where slavery is lawful, Carmilla’s mother owns her own business that puts them in the upper class in which requires them to have slaves of their own to keep their image. On Carmilla’s 17th birthday, she is finally old enough to own one of her own. She goes to the auction house with her mother, who has allowed her to pick out one of her own. Little did she know she would find one that she would like so much. In order to save the little honey haired girl from the greedy hands of the other auctioneers, she convinces her Mom to buy Laura to be Carmilla’s very own slave.

As much as this story seems like it’s pretty fucked, it really isn’t. It’s a good story, that has a lot of beautiful moments. It has it’s unnerving moments with the whole slavery ordeal, but it’s oh so oh so good.

On Your Ground by kaitlynsgonnakait  (tumblr prompt which is really cool)

Sum: Did you know that being intimate with your patient as a doctor is considered unlawful and a violation of hospital policies of the United States and is a justification for imprisonment? So did I, I mean Grey’s Anatomy, obvi, but it still makes for a damn good story. Carmilla and Laura knew that too, but the was the last thing on Carmilla’s mind when she got injured. It was ok, she had a really hot doctor to take care of her though.

Ohhhh soooo much angst. Ughh so good. And smuff with fluff of course. Pfft duh.

Secret Craving by catmilla

Sum: Carmilla is the new history teacher at the Silas highschool. The same school she went to herself. She never really liked school, so she surpised a lot of people when she decided she would teach, but it was her dream. College was finally over and she could finally pursue that dream. She’s nervous, but luckily there’s a little blonde girl that is determined to make her feel welcome to her new class and even more excited to “get to know her”.

Also, did you know that teacher-student relations considered sexual, whether consensual or not, is also illegal in public schools and immediate action of termination is required? Doesn’t this sound alot like that bloomington movie? Anyone else? No? Ok, well carry on.

The Trade We Choose by carmillasleatherpants

Sum: Laura needs a new job and she needs it stat. Luckily her friend LaF decided to put in a request for Laura to become the new personal assistant of the famous Carmilla Karnstein at Karnstein Industries until she becomes the new chairman in November when Carmilla turns 25. Or is she so lucky? When she looks at the reviews of how her possible new boss may act, maybe she isn’t as lucky as she thought she would be. At least that’s what the trail of previous personal assistants have said. Laura refuses to believe that anyone could possibly be that terrible.

This is reminds me of a better version of 50 Shade of Grey, but without the weird abuse. And it’s actually really good. Plus I’d watch this movie over and over again without feeling awkward, even while watching it by myself. *cringe* ok so not 50 Shades of Grey

The Black Cat by marissalyn14

Sum: Laura gets dragged to the Black Cat by her friends in order to get the birthday present of her dreams. Little did she know if would be a Kitty cat in a pretty black robe.

Little does Laura know her world would be turned upside down after she met the girl of her dreams. Maybe the Kitty isn’t as innocent as her name suggests.

This story a nice alternate twist to ‘That Was Unexpected’ that I mentioned before and it doesn’t disappoint. There’s smuff and fluff.

Veni, Vidi, Vici by standoutinacrowd

Sum: A HSAU, but what makes it great is that it has a nice twist of also being a stepsister AU. o.o. Hmm so the gothic broody useless lesbian and the bright and sunny popular girl’s parents decide to get married forcing the two to have to live together. Whats wrong with that? Everything! Carmilla has had a crush on the tiny blonde for 3 years. This can’t be happening! Now her crush is her stepsister. Ughh. (insert broody eyerolling).

On top of that Carmilla has a bad rep of rumors floating in the halls, no thanks to the beanstalk, so the ball of sunshine already has a bad image of her. It can’t get worse, right? Ha! The blonde is straight and her twin brother refuses to give up on his chances of getting in the cupcake’s pants.

This is going to be interesting. Smut and fluff.

-SHORT STORIES-

A Human, A Vampire, And A Werewolf Walk Into A Cliché by WaterBendin

Sum: A short story in which Danny, Laura and Carmilla all decide that they should get to know each other better by playing ‘Truth or Dare’. We all know the cliche of this one, but it turned out completely different than I thought it would. It’s really good.  

Coffee Sophistication by Muse92

Sum: Carmilla works at a coffee shop and she has become an expert at guessing what someone’s order will be. No one has ever surprised her with an order, until now when she meets a tiny journalist. Lots of fluff.

Shameless Smut Tropes by novaprospekt

Sum: I have never felt like a story has ever needed a warning in it’s summary, because well in my opinion I think it gives away the simplicity of the element of surprise. That can always make a story that much better. I have especially haven’t ever felt it necessary to add a warning to a story with a title such as this one, but there’s a first for everything. This story/stories has offended quite a few creampuffs, just because it pushes the boundaries, but if you think you can handle it I highly recommend it. I think it brings a refreshing change to the playground of the Hollistein AUs. I thought it was really good, and you get ample warning before each story provided. So far there are 31 or more stories listen and I think the author plans on adding more in the near future. Enjoy you dirty bastards! Shamelessly.

Anatomy Lessons with Professor Hollis by Fox_is_Fandumb

Sum: Smut with Fluff. Carmilla almost loses her job as the TA for her instructor, Professor Hollis, until Professor Hollis decides to sweep in and offer to tutor her student. The lessons go much better than planned. Maybe Carmilla actually knew a lot more than Professor Hollis had expected.

Special Delivery by bodylikeabattleaxe

Sum: Carmilla gets an interesting package in the mail. With all of the impending doom of Silas, Laura is interested in some change. Maybe this mystery package is exactly what she was looking for. Smut with Fluff.

Break Up to Make Up by littlemonster

Sum: Smut with some fluff. The title says it all.Could easily take place right after their breakup in season 2, but the author wrote it before it actually had taken place. It still reads as such.

In-Flight Distractions by Muse92

Sum: I want to say that the title says it all again, but I won’t be cruel. This is really good smut, about Carmilla having a fear of flying. Luckily she has a really cute distraction.

I plan on adding to this list as I go along. Please if anyone has more to add, tell me so I can make it grow. Ill probably read the stories or put them under as suggestions and add the name(if thats ok) of the person who suggested it for credit.

anonymous asked:

I saw your post about following more blogs about the other boys gave you a different perspective about Louis/Harry and the band as a whole... Can you elaborate a bit more on your thoughts? I'm curious to know :)

Sure. I’m going to preface this by pointing out that I am referring to my dash and nobody else’s dash. I know everyone’s dash is different. Also, anyone can blog about what they want. If someone is primarily a Larry blog, they’re going to blog about Larry. I get that.

Having said that, there are some specific things that tend to get ignored by a lot of Larries, like how often the men shared clothes, not just Louis and Harry. Also, Harry does sexual innuendo with everyone on stage. (I also think stage Harry has a very different persona than off-stage Harry, but that’s neither here nor there.)

In general, I think all of the band members tend to joke around a lot, play around a lot together, etc. They all have relationships with each other, and I think when I was following pretty much only Larries, it was easy to think that it was sort of Harry and Louis against the world. But really, it is–and has been–the whole band against the world.

When I was writing my Niall-centric OT5 fic, I needed to see Zayn in a much more sympathetic light than I was personally seeing him. A lot of that is because I came to the fandom after Zayn left, so I’ve always seen 1D as OT4. Following some more Ziam and Zayn blogs helped me see him as a more complex person than I was seeing him as before.

Niall is often presented/viewed as this happy-go-lucky fifth wheel. You know, the jokes about how he loves 1D more than anyone else? Sometimes the tone is just off. Almost like Niall is lucky to breathe the same air as Harry and Louis, like he wouldn’t be talented enough to do anything on his own. But he does a lot of charity work, he’s whip smart and quick. His golf stuff gets laughed off like it’s just a dumb hobby, but he’s done a lot with Justin Rose for charity stuff. Highly respectable. While I can’t figure out what the hell he’s doing with his album, I think it’s clear he’s worked hard on it. “This Town” has done fantastically, and has been on the air and charts pretty damn consistently since it was released. Also, I think a lot of people still view Niall as this sort of little brother unsexed one, and dude. No.

Liam, in my opinion, is too often dismissed as someone who does what he’s told and toes the party line. I think people ignore how this benefits the whole band. He also has been working with a ton of different people in the music industry, which tells me he’s just as respected in the industry as Louis. But he doesn’t get screamed about the same way. I also think Liam being seen as the buttoned-up one who follows orders (or whatever) can mean that people ignore the deep down sensitivity that he has.

I think some arguments (like Louis is the band leader and everyone else falls in line depending on what he wants, or that everyone admires him) really take away a lot of agency from the other members of the band. I think it’s quite clear that the band members work(ed?) together to be successful. The idea that Louis has nobody before he had Steve is just weird to me, because he had a whole band of people who respected him and whom he respected. I also think, when you follow some other blogs (especially ones that I think are seen as “fringe,” like the ones who think OT5 will get back together), it’s easy to see media narrative in a different light, just because you’re getting more viewpoints.

I think that often Larries are quick to forgive Louis and Harry their images but eat up the other three members’ images as if they must be true. But following more Niall/Liam/Zayn blogs has helped me see the band members, and the band, in a more nuanced way.

over the years i’ve gone through so many phases music-wise, beginning with cheesy hair metal stuff and michael jackson but only when i discovered music from seattle, did i feel like this was really IT, like this was the music i had always wanted and needed to hear. first band i got into was pearl jam and then bands like alice in chains, nirvana, mudhoney, mother love bone, and finally soundgarden and temple of the dog followed. it’s truly impossible to count how many times i’ve heard all their albums and how much i relied on them in my adolescence. all the feelings i’ve held for this music never went away. i always thought grunge had the best singers in rock music, especially chris cornell. the most outstanding and powerful voice i have ever heard. i don’t remember who said this but i’m sure it was someone from tumblr, this person said that grunge music feels like home and regardless of how many other bands you listen to, it will always be something you come back to. and it’s so true because after all those years, when i feel bad, soundgarden and pearl jam are the major bands i turn to. this music never felt depressing, quite the opposite. it was something i’ve always held onto. what i admire the most in music is how much emotion it can give us and chris’s voice is the perfect example of raw emotion i always look for in every band. i could talk about importance of those songs for hours but right now i just want to thank chris for his beautiful, meaningful lyrics that he had written and for the music he had made. if i hadn’t discovered grunge, i would have never met my best friend weronika with whom i saw pearl jam live in 2014. and that is also something i will be eternally grateful for. everything good in my life had happened thanks to the music and chris’s music played a huge part in it. as cliche as it may sound sometimes, i really don’t know where i’d be without this music. it keeps me strong everyday so thank you chris for everything, i hope you found andy and that you will rest in peace. i send love to his family, his friends, fans and bandmates 

Interviewer: “Does that sum up Nirvana’s whole philosophy about the band - don’t think about it, just do it?”

Krist Novoselic: “I’ve always really liked music, ever since I was a kid. I was really in love with certain bands and they were like my bands. It was probably an identity thing too for me, so I’m really glad that I’m doing something that I totally want to. It means a lot to me, it’s not just some kind of fashion thing.”

Kurt Cobain: “You better watch yourself Krist, you’re getting a bit too serious. You’re gonna get fired, man.”

after noodle's senior prom (at her sketchy inner city high school) she tells the guys to pick her up out back. they catch her making out with a girl, and i mean like, the girls against the wall and their giggling between really long french kisses. what do the guys do in response? do they say anything or just say silent and awkward? sorry i freaking love seeing noodle grow up

me

The Whole Band ™:

  • When Noodle’s bandmates roll into the back parking lot of her high school in search of the prize, (Noodle herself) they all stumble upon something surprising.
  • “Hey, I never knew she was one of those lesbeans, yeah, Russ?” frikin murdoc it’s lesbian you uncultered swine
  • Woahhhh,” 2D would murmur, face pressed up against the window. “Is now a bad time?”
  • Russ would just stare in shock, not knowing what he should do. Should he go outside and split the two up? Should he drive away and come back later? Should he correct Murdoc?
  • Rolling down the window, Russ would stick his head outside. “Should we come back later?” He’d called, eyebrows raised. This catches Noodle’s attention as her head swings back to Russ, a wild blush spreading like wildfire across her cheeks.
  • “N-No, it’s not a bad time,” she’d stutter, giving mystery girl one last kiss before said departure. “Bye, ____.”
  • The drive home would be kind of quiet. No one is upset that Noodle kissed a girl, but everybody was just slightly taken aback.
  • “So,” Murdoc would say, finally breaking the silence. “How was it?”
  • “How was what, exactly?” Noodle would ask, looking through Instagram on her phone. “Because prom itself was kind of underwhelming– I had to go outside and get some fresh air because it was so hot in there.”
  • “Yeah,” Murdoc coughed. “To rub uglies with that girl-”
  • Noodle, we are very proud parents,” Russ would interrupt, his face distorted with an awkward smile, trying to avoid conversation. “And we are so happy regarding any of your decisions.”
  • russ is scared and sad bc his girl is growin up
  • 2d just stares out the window in the back of the car, twiddling with his thumbs

Omg could you explain the thing about Greeks and homosexuality?

this is gonna be really quick but like basically omfg anc greece wasnt this like free-loving progressive society like

also fuck if i get any of this wrong someone correct me this is off the top of my head but like most of it in anc greece was?? pederasty??

which was like. relationship between an older (and usually of a higher class) male in his 30s+ typically (ἐραστής) and a younger (probs middle class) male who would’ve been anywhere from like 14-20 (ἐρώμενος) i think ? and it was like. kind of a mentor thing like the sexual/romantic if u wanna call it that, and the relationship was both sexual and social and the older man would help educate the younger and all. we also don’t know how common it was in lower classes bc like everything we have records the lives of rich men

the older men would sometimes have wives also

and it was like socially accepted and w/e as far as we know but there was still like stigma when it was between men of similar age and class, though that stigma was mostly directed @ the ‘passive’ male 

also like ? doesn’t misogyny play into it a lot as well lmfao like irt seeking those closer relationships w/ men > women bc they were less than

and like there was. appreciation for the male form and all that it was like a complicated thing but anc greece just wasn’t this ~gay paradise that people act like it was (it’s also very…male centric)

also people like achilles and patroclus get cited a lot but ! part of why they’re so Famous is bc of the romantic nature of their relationship (which people disagree about but like. phaedrus i think in plato’s symposium uses em as a primo example of love and in the iliad achilles goes above and beyond with lamentation for patroclus and that’s a whole thing bc that lamentation was a role typically assigned to women like it was part of the women’s role to lament for dead husbands and relatives so achilles going to the extreme he does is v important)

and u can probs look @ the sacred band of thebes and shit but a lot of what im talkin abt is largely athens and crete im p sure and thebes was like ,diff. also i just looked it up again and the sacred band was made up of pederastic couples anyway

also like………..applying modern labels irt sexuality on ancient societies is rly difficult and full of problems bc conceptions of gender and sexuality were! different! the social conception of sexuality wasn’t there

god idk if this makes sense or w/e and some of this mightnt be 100% but like

anc greece wasn’t some all-accepting paradise it had diff social conventions and it’s complicated and none of this addresses love between women bc we have so little on that 

Okay wow, this chapter is a blessing. I’m super glad we get to see more and more of Tanaka and his relationship to Kanoka including their past. He is an amazing character and it seems like he finally gets the backstory/background information he deserves. 

I really loved that Atsumu talked to Kageyama, although that was expected, and I don’t know, it’s just my feelings, but it’s a little like we’re going to get a setter’s showdown and I AM SO HYPED. Damn, those intense looks… 

Also, Karasuno in their reverse jerseys.. can’t wait to see that animated! And Kageyama being savage as fuck calling Hinata a mandarin, I love him so much omg. 

And Inarizaki is so fucking extra like?! They nearly have a whole orchestra/marching band with them, and they’re all tall and pretty and confident, they have lots of TV interviews, and they are nearly treated like idols?! And they’re wearing pitch-black jerseys…. might heart can’t take this… send help…

bts married life : jungkook (2/7)

autumn leaves drifting onto gravel roads. the scent of mahogany tables in furniture stores. fireworks crackling and sparkling in the evening sky. late night bus rides. music escaping from earphones. crickets in the silence of sunsets. being lifted off the ground and spun around.

what is it like being married to jeon jungkook?

Proposal- Tyler Joseph

You were sitting  backstage with Tyler and Josh in their dressing room. You were on the couch with Tyler sitting on his lap as he played with your hair and talked to Josh about the show. Every time his phone would buzz signaling he got a text he would pull the phone out of your view. This was strange because he usually didn’t care what you saw on his phone. You had been dating Tyler for about 2 years now and you’ve always been very open to each other.

“Hey Josh we have to go take care of that thing.” Tyler said.

“What thing?” Tyler just stared at Josh until something clicked. “Oh that thing. Yeah let’s go.” Josh stood and you moved off of Tyler’s lap.

“Where are you going and what ‘thing?” you asked starting to get annoyed with the secrets.

“Don’t worry about it babe, we’ll be back in time for soundcheck.”

“So you’re just gonna leave me to sit here in the arena with nothing to do.”

Tyler looked at you for a moment then smiled. “Yup.” then they walked off.

He was acting so weird today and it kind of hurt that he was sort of ignoring you and all your questions.

You plopped down on the couch and as you did you felt cold glass rub your leg. It was Tyler’s phone. You immediately got up to go bring it to Tyler but you didn’t see him or Josh down the long hall and you didn’t want to get lost in the arena.

His phone buzzed again with a text from his sister Maddie.

Good luck. She deserves this.

Good luck with what? The show maybe? And who is she and what does she deserve?

Maybe she was talking about you. Maddie has never been the biggest fan of you and she probably would only be happy if you left Tyler’s life.

Your thoughts began to roam into thinking Tyler was gonna leave you. They were confirmed when you saw a text come in from one of Tyler’s brothers, Zach.

Do it before she leaves you. 2 years don’t you think that’s a long time?.

You went to open his phone to read what the previous text were about so you could put the pieces together, but his phone wouldn’t unlock. His password was always the same but he must have changed it.

You started to feel guilty when you tried every possible code and the ‘disabled for 1 minute’ screen showed. It wasn’t like you to be snooping around but you couldn’t help it. You love Tyler and you thought things were going so well. I guess not because he’s gonna leave you.

You stood from the spot on the couch and threw Tyler’s phone down on the floor out of anger. You grabbed your purse and left. You didn’t know how to get out of the arena with all it’s confusing halls but once you came across the stage and saw Tyler’s piano just sitting there it set in.

The man you put your life into didn’t love you. The man you woke up to almost every morning for the past 6 months since you moved in with him was gone. He was probably out looking for someone better right now.

You were quickly pulled from your thoughts when you heard Tyler’s voice in the background talking to Josh. They just got back from wherever they went and were headed to soundcheck.

You  were still in shock from thinking that Tyler was going to leave you that when you felt a pair of arms snake around your waist from behind you jumped a little.

“Hey baby. I missed you when I was gone.” Tyler said pulling you close and kissing your head.

“Missed you too.” You said with your head in his chest. Even if he was going to break up with you, you couldn’t help but love him.

“You okay?” He asked looking directly into your eyes.

“Yeah just tired I guess. I’m gonna go lay down before the show.”

“Okay. I’ll wake you before we go on. I love you.” He kissed you on your lips and you realized how much you were going to miss that.

You headed to the bus and fell asleep on the couch.

3 hours later

“Hey beautiful, wake up. We’re about to go on in like 20 minutes. I want you to watch the whole show tonight I have something special happening.” Tyler said shaking you awake.

For someone who was going to break up with you, he had a lot of compliments to give.

As Tyler lead you back to the arena you could hear the opening bands playing and the fans going crazy already.

You sat in a chair that Tyler pulled up for you on the side of the stage as him and Josh got all last minute things together.

Right before they went on Tyler ran over to you and kissed you “God I love you Y/N.” Then he ran off onto stage and started the show.

When it came time for Trees and Tyler’s speech you realized he wasn’t in his usual spot on stage where he gives the speech and he had his ukulele in his hands.

“Okay as most of you know this is usually the part of the show where I give the speech about how grateful we are to have you as our fans and all that jazz and then we play Trees. Tonight I wanted to do something a bit different. Something different for a very special person in my life. I love this person and no I’m not talking about Josh or my mom. I’m talking about my girlfriend Y/N who most of you know. If you don’t you should know she’s the most beautiful, fun, loving human in this world. Oh and did I mention how beautiful she is.” The crowd was filled with cheers and ‘awwwwes’.

“Y/N come here.” Tyler said gesturing you to go out on stage. You just stood there like deer in headlights. You never went out on stage with people in the audience. “She’s a little shy. Hold on.” Tyler came over and pulled you out on stage. The crowd all clapped when Tyler placed a small kiss on your lips. He grabbed the microphone again and started speaking. This time playing a few chords on the ukulele.

“I’m playing this song for you my love.”

Wise men say only fools rush in. But I can’t help falling in love with you.

He was playing your favorite song. It felt as if everyone in the arena was singing along but all you had your focus on was Tyler as he sang to you.

But I can’t help falling in love with you.

As he sang the last verse he got down onto one knee and pulled out a ring. You felt the world around you stop.

“Y/N will you marry me.”

You shook you head yes as tears fell from your eyes. You were so happy when he pulled you into a hug after placing the ring on your finger. You buried your face into his chest and cried. You were so scared all day that he was going to leave you when really he was planning all of this.

You left for the side stage so they could continue the show and once they both bowed Tyler nearly tackled you with hugs and kisses.

“Are you serious? You’ll really marry me?”

“Of course I will. I love you Ty.” you sat kissing him more.

You both headed back to the dressing room and he told you how he planned the whole thing today.

“Yeah today I just felt something I didn’t feel before and I knew I had to propose tonight. So me and Josh went to the jewelers and picked a ring that reminded me the most of you. Then when you were napping we rehearsing I learned can’t help falling in love. I just thought it was the perfect song to describe how I felt for you. I know you were kind of mad at me before for not telling you what was going on, but I sort of couldn’t. I had asked your parents if I could marry you about a month ago and I told them I wasn’t sure when I was going to, so today I was waiting for their approval to do it tonight before I went out with Josh.”

“I’m just happy you proposed instead of what I thought you were going to do.”

“What did you think was going to happen?”

“Honestly, I feel really guilty but I thought you were going to break up with me and when you left you forgot your phone. I looked at it and there was a text from Maddie and Zack that made me think you were gonna end the relationship. I know it’s dumb but I got scared.” You said with your head down.

He pulled you face up to meet his. “I love you too much to ever hurt you.”

I'm so glad that someone publicly supports him. But this sentence, that he probably hates humans right now is like a punch in the gut. To think what that boy has gone trough during first five years of band, then babygate and now this attempt of destroying his image. 😳😥 However, love will always win!!! 💙💚🌈🐝

I wouldn’t blame him at all if he did hate the world right now. But you know the crazy part? I bet he doesn’t. I bet he hates a whole lot of humans, but not all of them, not even the majority of them. At least I hope so. 

He’s gonna get through all this bullshit, he’s gonna come out on top and drop them all in the gutter where they belong

ANGST: Ford, convinced that everyone in the town would be better off without him after Weirdmageddon, runs away. He leaves no note, no indication of where he's gone. He just gets up, takes nothing with him and leaves. He heads into the woods and just disappears. Stan starts a full-scale search party to find Ford, convinced Ford left because of him. Stan ends up being the one to find Ford. Ford had collapsed from exhaustion and refuses to come home, knowing everyone will be better off without him

Nuuuuuuuu! ;AAA; Oh boy this reminds me a lot of @skaleigha‘s Guilty Ford AU, which I really love and has already had some great content made for it. Would this be right after Weirdmageddon? Right after they defeat Bill? Or do you think Ford would run away after Stan begins to regain his memory, terrified of what will happen when Stan remembers all of the mistakes Ford made and how the apocalypse was his fault?

This entire AU and this idea in particular just… oh man, it gives me so many conflicting fluffy and angsty feelings. On one hand you have Ford- who is so consumed in guilt and regret and likely self-hatred (damnit Ford, you poor man) that he feels like his actions in rebellion of Bill mean nothing since he brought Bill into this dimension in the first place. Wrongly, he assumes the community and even his own family (ouch) hate him for what he did in the past- never once stopping to think that maybe they’ve already forgiven him… That maybe they’ve already acknowledged that he’s done the best he can to make up for those mistakes…

And thus, the idea of the whole town coming together to search for Ford is really emotional and powerful to me, because that right there just PROVES that they’ve forgiven Ford and that they care so much about this family to help them when they’re caught in a flurry. I love the idea of this town being so close that- despite their obvious differences- they band around each other when crisis hits. I love that a lot! :DD

And gosh, what a gut-punch of a conversation the final bit of this idea would be. Stan finally finding Ford. Perhaps Ford’s been missing for nearly two days or something… lying prone on the forest floor… his stomach rumbling from severe lack of food… his injuries from Weirdmageddon still not treated. He’d probably be burning from fever thanks to infection, and nearly delirious. I imagine all the bottled up emotions would just come pouring out, messy and raw and spoken in horse, tear-filled whispers.

This Ford would definitely be needing a hospital. And a therapist. And hugs.

Why, hello spooky ghost tattoo friend! 💕
So, Ghost town means a lot to me, as some of you know, they’re my absolute favorite band. To have a piece of their art, Alister’s Art, on my body in tattoo form means so much to me. Heck, one day, I’m hoping for it to be a whole sleeve! One step at a time though, haha. To Ghost Town and all the fellow ghosts who party around in the graveyard, I love you all, keep being you and keep being rad. Stay spooky, cuties. 💕

Hello! Could I ask about RFA members, V and Saeran reaction when they find out that MC is non-asian foreigner who is studying in Korea and has rock band.? Could I also ask for detailed reactions?? Thank you so much and good luck with running your blog! Keeping fingers crossed for you~! <3

Thank you anon! And I hope this turned out alright c : I had a bit more trouble writing for it, but I think it turned out well! It’s also formatted a bit differently since it’s more detailed!

Zen:

* After the RFA party you and Zen started meeting up a lot more and going out for coffee

* At first he was shocked to find out you were an foreigner, but didn’t mind at all. He also found out you got pulled into the whole ordeal after unknown because you were on vacation here.

* loved hearing stories about where you were from.

* When the two of you went up to pay he heard your phone go off. The ringtone was some song from a band, but it it sounded really good from what he could hear.

* On the way back The two of them talked about the band MC was in. He got super excited to hear more of the songs from them!

* Back at Zen’s apartment MC showed him all the videos and songs they had and even some unreleased ones no one knew about

* Whenever he was cleaning or going over lines he would play their music

* Convinced MC to plan a trip back to her hometown with him to listen to them live at some point.

Yoosung:

* When of Yoosung’s favorite things to do with you was share music. Both of you had similar tastes and loved finding new bands to listen to while he played LOLOL.

* He loved hearing the bands that were popular were MC was from.

* One day while MC had her music on shuffle one of he songs from her band started playing.

* Yoosung instantly loved it and asked MC what the band name was so he could check them out. He pouted when she refused to tell him.

* After a lot of pestering and whining he finally got the name and started looking up songs and videos. When he found one of the videos he was shacked to see….W A S T H A T Y O U ?

* The second he found out he clung to you and begged to hear you sing.

* How did he score this big on his first girlfriend?? She can sing and is in a band too?? 

Jaehee: 

* She always loves hearing your stories. After a long day of work all she wants is to hear more stories about your past, your interests and just everything. Jaehee is an amazing listening and remembers a lot of what you tell her too.

* Shes really good about trying dishes from where you are originally from and likes learning more about where you are from.

* One night you briefly mention the band you were in which peaks Jaehee’s interest. She gets pretty stubborn when she try to change the subject. Finally she gives in and shows her a couple songs she did.

* Jaehee likes them a lot and occasionally you can hear her listening to some of them in between the songs from musicals 

Jumin:

* Anything you do this man will love and support 100%

* He finds one of your CD’s one day and gets excited. MC comes home to hearing her old music and gets a bit flustered.

* After Jumin tells her how he found it he instantly talks about getting your own recording studio to do more music.

* At first MC isn’t fully on board before realizing how much she mised being in the band

*eventually she gives in and starts doing some solo work thanks to Jumin

Saeyoung:

* Thanks to his handy dandy hacking skills he had already known that you were a foreigner and had a band! 

* One day, when he was bored of work, he looked up random facts about where you were from. He got really intrigued and looked up your band as well.

* Boy did he replay those videos over a thousand times

* Seeing you up on a stage an preforming some damn good music made him fall for you instantly.

* And damn you had a good voice

* Then he had a lightblub moment. What if you played at the party?

* Good grief did it take some convincing, but you eventually agreed. 

* Everyone who was at the party was amazed. Thanks to you playing with a bunch of big wig people MC’s band also got a bunch of recognition! A few people who had some record company friends even got her a couple gigs! 

V:

* Mc was playing with V’s hair when she started humming a tune to a song. V couldn’t place the tune and asked her what it was from

* MC started to tell V about where she was originally from and about her band. He was a bit shocked to find out MC wasn’t from here. He had never really thought about it since he couldn’t see her and didn’t hear any trace of an accent.

* After finding out about her band V quickly bought all of the music she had released and listens to it around the house. MC gets a bit embarrassed, but it doesn’t take long for the two of you to start singing along together.

Saeran: 

* At first he didn’t really mention anything about you being a foreigner. To him it didn’t really make much of a difference.  

* While you were out he looked through some of your  things and found some old CD’s of a band he never heard of.

* He stashed them in a place only he knew to look and listened to them the next time you were out.

* After he heard it for the first time he put 2 and 2 together and was surprised that you could sing. 

* Every time your out he plays the CD’s. One day MC caught him. She laughed at the fact he was hiding her old music. After she found out MC ended up giving him a few more she had that he never found.

also makes sure to lock her things
