i love you is a song

whale-donger  asked:

how are you able to find such amazing songs for your playlists, i love almost all of them

In an alternate timeline of my life, I work in the music industry. I was a bit of a band groupie/blogger/obsessive curator in high school (even started a Music Appreciation Club) and then I majored in Music in college and had a college radio show where I talked about and played stuff I liked. In short: I am a music person. 

Discovering new artists is something that I sadly no longer have a lot of time for, but I have a personal library of over 20,000 songs that I’m constantly putting on shuffle. So I don’t really know how music discovery happens in the modern world. Most of the new stuff I find is from TV/film/other friends/my existing library. I still use iTunes and that’s how I found new stuff for a long time - they used to have this amazing Free Weekly Single thing, which is how I first heard Adele and a bunch of other great artists. Even though my indifference for it is fairly well-documented on this blog, Spotify is probably pretty good for discovery?

“We don’t have time for you” Every year, I would stay at home for weeks because nothing was “coming in.” Instead of waiting, for the past 5 years I’ve been writing my own songs, making my own albums, producing, directing, and/or editing my videos, making concepts and styling, writing proposals and presenting marketing plans, and even looking for my own jobs, all so that I could do what I love for my fans. Even after 5 years, I’m given the same answer. They still tell me I’m not good enough. What more do I have to do?

sanvers gay af headcanon where they stay up after having sex and maggie who’s a lil bookworm nerd reads alex her favourite poetry and alex plays with her hair while she does so and alex loves this one small poem by leonard cohen called ‘the sweetest little song’ and it’s only two lines long

you go your way
i’ll go your way too

and it just sort of hits alex and she loves it to bits and it becomes like Their Poem™ and they get matching tattoos, alex gets one line on her right side sort of above her hip and maggie gets it on her left side on her ribs so when they stand next to each other the tattoos touch

Have You Ever Been In Love

A/N: An anon request for a Spencer x Reader where they are much older, graying, with grandkids, that kind of thing. One night, they go out to a restaurant, and their song comes on. The reader makes Spencer get up and dance with her in the middle of the restaurant. The requester said the song choice was up to me, so I decided to go with Have You Ever Been In Love by Celine Dion because I could listen to that shit every damn day. @coveofmemories @hanny-bananny


How had the time flown by so fast? There was no way you were 75 and Spencer was 79. You couldn’t possibly have three grown children and (almost) 8 grandchildren. But you did. And tomorrow you’d have been married for 50 years - the golden anniversary. You’d been lucky enough to live this long and remain in love with the man you married every single day. As a matter of fact, if it were possible, your love for him had only grown over the years.

“There’s no way we’ve been married for 50 years, right?” he laughed, his voice still soothing after all these years. It had grown a little more shaky with age, but his mind was still as sharp as a tack, and he still sounded like the man you’d fallen in love with so many years ago. “We can’t possibly be that old?”

“I’m afraid we are,” you chuckled, linking your arm in his as you walked into the restaurant. “But through it all, we’ve had three beautiful babies and now we almost have 8 beautiful grandbabies.”

“I can’t believe Diana is going to pop again in two weeks.” Diana, your youngest, was 38 years old and just under nine months pregnant with your eighth grandchild, her third and final, according to her. Your two others, Walter Spencer Reid, was 48 years old and had two children of his own - Walter Jr., 12 and Illaria, 10, and your middle child, Alexandra Jennifer, was 43 and had three kids of her own, all boys, Spencer, David and Morgan. Your BAU family reached through many generations of your own. 

Diana already had two children, Emma, 8, and Faith, 4. The little one yet to be born was a boy and he would be named after your son-in-law, Michael. So many little ones to love, especially since you’d retired from the Bureau a decade earlier. “It’s insane. But I can’t wait to hold a baby again. You remember what it was like when you first held ours?”

How could he not? Those three days had been some of the greatest of his life. That and the day they were married. After going through so much, he found happiness with one of his best friends and created the life he’d always imagined himself having. Somehow, time had flown by and now they were here, being seated at their favorite restaurant the night before their 50th anniversary. Tomorrow was technically the big day, but the kids and grandkids had planned a special dinner at Walter’s house for your actual anniversary. “I’ll never forget.”

The Italian place around the corner from your old apartment had been your favorite for more than 50 years. It changed hands within the family that owned it, but the menu never changed and you always got the same thing, normally ordering before you were even seated. Chicken Florentine for you and Eggplant Parmigiana for Spencer - every single time. “So what do you think the kids have planned for tomorrow?” you asked.

“Well,” he laughed, “I imagine Walter was in charge of the playlist. Diana was probably responsible for nothing. If she was, then we have to smack Walter and Alexandra on the backs of the head. And Alex is probably cooking dinner…I suspect that chocolate raspberry cake I love for dessert, and dinner…hmmm…”

You hoped it was Alex’s chicken marsala. She was the queen of that recipe. Spencer mentioned the chicken marsala. Probably because he was reading your mind. “I know they were planning the whole thing, but I hope they made a point of calling Morgan, JJ, Emily, Penelope and Luke,” Spencer said. Although they had a family of their own, their team was family too, and they hoped that the remaining members could be there. 

“Me too,” you replied. “I think they probably called them.” Just as your food came to the table, you heard a familiar tune float through the restaurant. 

Have you ever been in love
You could touch the moonlight
When your heart’s shooting stars
You’re holding heaven in your arms
Have you ever been so in love

A small smile crept its way onto both your faces. It was the song you’d chosen for your first dance. “Did you tell them?” Spencer asked. But you hadn’t. It was just an amazing coincidence. 

To Spencer’s surprise, you stood up and held your hand out for him. When you were younger, he would’ve shied away from such public displays of affection, but at this age, neither of you cared what anyone thought anymore. “Dance with me,” you whispered. As you looked into those light brown eyes, you nearly started to cry.

Have you ever walked on air
Ever felt like you were dreamin’
When you never thought it could
But it really feels that good
Have you ever been so in love

Spencer wrapped his arms around your waist, which had expanded a bit do to age and babies, while you snaked your hands around his neck, playfully tangling your fingers in his hair, which was now more gray than brown. “I couldn’t imagine spending my life with anyone else,” you whispered in his ear. “To many more, okay?” Both of you smiled from ear to ear as some other diners looked on. A young couple, probably about the same age you and Spencer were when you started dating, looked on in awe. 

“Is this your wedding song?” she asked, her eyes wide with joy. You nodded as Spencer gently twirled you around. Now the entire restaurant was watching.

Have you ever said a prayer
And found that it was answered
All my hope has been restored
And I ain’t looking anymore
Have you ever been so in love, have you

“Married for 50 years tomorrow, sweetheart. How long have you been with your boyfriend?” you wondered. She told you they’d been dating for less than a year. 

“You should ask her to marry you,” Spencer said, much to the surprise of the boyfriend. “You look at her the same way I look at her,” he smiled. “When you find it, don’t let go.”

The time I spent
Waiting for something that was heaven-sent
When you find it, don’t let go,
I know

As the song came to a close, Spencer dipped you as much as his aging body would allow and brought you back up for a kiss as the restaurant patrons cheered and clapped. When you sat down, you made a point of turning back toward the young couple. “My genius husband here is right of course,” you laughed, reaching across the table and placing your hand over his. “You remind me of us. I know love when I see it.”

“Alright, have fun up there!”, you told Harry, giving him a quick peck on the lips. He grinned.

“Always do.”

Then he left, going backstage, leaving you with some friends by the barricades.

Shortly after Ed ended his song, took a big gulp from his water bottle and then gave the crowd a massive smile.

“You lot are absolutely lovely. Now, I have a little surprise for you. A friend of mine is here tonight and I would like him to join me on stage. What do you think?”

The crowd cheered loudly. You could hear a few fans, standing a little ways away, yelling at each other.

“Oh my gosh, it’s gonna be Harry, isn’t it?”

“Aaaah, if it’s Harry I’m gonna die.”

“Oh God, Harry and Ed! HARRY AND ED!”

You grinned. You loved how passionate Harry’s fans still were, even after all these years.

“Alright, you heard ‘em! Come on up here, Harry! Harry Styles everyone!”, Ed was just saying.

Old Devil’s Moon

Dean Winchester x Reader

1000 Words

Story Summary: An unexpected drive in the moonlight brings you and Dean closer.

Author’s Note: This is written for @just-another-busy-fangirl and her 1K Follower Musical Celebration!! Congrats on the followers, you deserve every one of them!! Much love!! My song is Old Devil’s Moon from Finean’s Rainbow. I probably didn’t do the song justice, but I tried my best!!

“No warnings, except it’s fluff!

You weren’t sure how it all started. One moment you were riding shotgun with Dean, laughing at his extremely lame jokes, feeling like you had the world by it’s tail. Then with one glance over at him, that’s when you felt it. The tell tale signs of your heart becoming attached. Knowing that your hunting friendship was growing into something more. Something that scared you, but exhilarated you at the same time.

I look at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me
It’s that old devil moon
That you stole from the skies
It’s that old devil moon in your eyes

The Iterations of Arya Stark

Within A Song of Ice and Fire, there are a number of Arya proxies you can find, both by look and by personality. I think it’s interesting to study them side by side to see what the characters have to say about her as a person, as well as the authorial intent, parallels, and possible foreshadowing. There was Lyanna, a wild beauty by most standards; Ygritte, the fiery first love; Meera, the ever-protective sister and huntress; Margaery, the cunning pretender; Jeyne, Lady of Winterfell; Leaf, a small vessel of old magic; Willow, a fierce little girl who acts as a queen; and finally Alys, the grey northern girl with a frosty winter crown. 


“Lyanna might have carried a sword, if my lord father had allowed it. You remind me of her sometimes. You even look like her.” (Arya, A Game of Thrones)


Something about her made him think of Arya, though they looked nothing at all alike. “Will you yield?” he asked, giving the dirk a half turn. And if she doesn’t? (Jon, A Clash of Kings)


Jojen was so solemn that Old Nan called him “little grandfather,” but Meera reminded Bran of his sister Arya. She wasn’t scared to get dirty, and she could run and fight and throw as good as a boy. (Bran, A Clash of Kings)


A few days past, he had taken Ned aside to show him an exquisite rose gold locklet. Inside was a miniature painted in the vivid Myrish style, of a lovely young girl with doe’s eyes and a cascade of soft brown hair. [..] The maid was Loras Tyrell’s sister Margaery, he’d confessed, but there were those who said she looked like Lyanna. (Eddard, A Game of Thrones)


The girl was slim, and taller than he remembered, but that was only to be expected. Girls grow fast at that age. Her dress was grey wool bordered with white satin; over it she wore an ermine cloak clasped with a silver wolf’s head. Dark brown hair fell halfway down her back. And her eyes…

That is not Lord Eddard’s daughter. (Reek, A Dance with Dragons)


A cloud of ravens was pouring from the cave, and he saw a little girl with a torch in hand, darting this way and that. For a moment Bran thought it was his sister Arya…madly, for he knew his sister was a thousand leagues away, or dead. And yet there she was, whirling, a scrawny thing, ragged, wild, her hair atangle. Tears filled Hodor’s eyes and froze there. (Bran, A Dance with Dragons)


Gendry was the closest thing to a man grown, but it was Willow shouting all the orders, as if she were a queen in her castle and the other children were no more than servants.

If she were highborn, command would come naturally to her, and deference to them. Brienne wondered whether Willow might be more than she appeared. […] Brown hair, brown eyes, skinny….could it be? Arya Stark’s hair was brown, she recalled, but Brienne was not sure of the color of her eyes. (Brienne, A Feast for Crows)


The girl smiled in a way that reminded Jon so much of his little sister that it almost broke his heart. […] The snowflakes were melting on her cheeks, but her hair was wrapped in a swirl of lace that Satin had found somewhere, and the snow had begun to collect there, giving her a frosty crown. (Jon, A Dance with Dragons)

Blackpink’s Reaction To You Playing Guitar For Them

~For anon!~

{ Rosé }

“You did this all, for me?”

Rosé would be in absolute awe of you. Watching every finger placement and strum, she would find it extremely attractive and wouldn’t be afraid in showing you. I’m sure she would return the gesture as a surprise when you least expect it, maybe on stage.

{ Jisoo }

“Please, just one more?”

Jisoo would probably do a mini dance to what you are playing, making you laugh in the process. She would be so grateful that you would do that for her, probably begging you to do another song. You accept of course.

{ Jennie }

“You give me goosebumps, I never knew you could sing like that!”

Jennie would be so captivated by your voice as you put so much emotion into the performance. She’d understand every single word and would get quite emotional. It would make her fall in love with you ten times more as you reveal another side to you.

{ Lisa }

“I love you so much, I’m so happy right now”

Lisa would be the most surprised, it would be so out of the blue that it stopped her in her tracks. She would sit down and watch you intently as you sing to her and would be so giddy and overwhelmed afterwards. I can imagine her attacking you with hugs and kisses afterwards.

fooled christmas (a soft sad love song)

i’m at your feet, as you sit on a brown chair and think

think about all the doom that we can’t see, think

about the way things might end for us tonight, think about

how the stars are just reflections of the people down here;

someone retches downstairs and it sounds like

a soft sad love song, muffled and honest, no punches pulled

someone falls upstairs and the thud is loud and true

confusion rings throughout the house;

not the christmas we expected, is it?
