So I’m (almost) done with my final AS exams, and having at last completed my first year of college, I feel like I’ve picked up on a lot. I know that there are a LOT of GCSE students on here - particularly in Years 10/11 - who are planning to start their AS Levels in September, so I thought I’d make a post of things I’ve learned (both through success and a lot of failure) that might be helpful!
1. MAKE SURE THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE SIGNING UP FOR
This definitely sounds pretty basic, but you would not believe the amount of people who either switch their subjects around or drop A Levels entirely within the first month or so. As much as the change is definitely okay and it’s great to switch to what works for you, if you make these changes after a week or two, you’re going to have a LOT of work to catch up on regardless of what course or subject you move to. In regards to A Levels as a whole, here are some aspects that could be helpful to consider based on how you work:
AS moves fast; content is covered extremely quickly and although you’ll be eased in gently, you’re expected to keep up.
There’s a lot of content. I struggled more revising three AS subjects than 11 GCSEs.
They’re very academic; although some subjects have coursework, a lot of this is written (essays, investigations, etc), and there’s a big reliance on exams.
It’s much stricter on homework. In my college, if we don’t keep up with work, there’s a pretty high chance we can be kicked off the course.
In terms of individual subjects, I feel like there’s a big misconception that all of your subjects should relate to one another, which isn’t true at all! If you have a specific career plan in mind, sometimes similar subjects can be helpful (for example I know people taking chemsitry/physics/biology or drama/media/film), but having a backup plan is always nice! A couple of things to consider with subject choice are:
How will you be assessed? This is a pretty important one; if you don’t like writing, but take three subjects which evaluate you on your essay writing ability, you’re going to struggle.
What’s the content of the course? You may think a subject sounds great, but not the actual curriculum and topics!
Do you like the teacher? This is an iffy one, but if you meet the teacher and absolutely 1000% can’t get along with them, it’s going to damage your motivation. Just make sure you can tolerate their class.
2. USE A L L OF YOUR INDEPENDENT STUDY TIME
I am telling you now that you will be told this by every single adult you meet in college. every. single. one. And you’ll probably argue that you don’t have enough work to fill all of the time, or that you’re too tired, or, you know, something that seems reasonable at the time but regrettable three months later.
At my college, we’re expected to put in five hours of study per subject per week, not including homework or in-class time. For most people, this’ll mean around 15 hours a week, which doesn’t seem much, but whEN YOU DON’T USE IT, IT IS SO MUCH TIME LOST. I don’t know anybody who puts in 15hrs/week, but now that it’s exam season we’re all regretting it real hard.
Get your homework done, and find a way to revise your work. Flashcards. Posters. Past papers. If you don’t have any new content to learn, put in the time every week to study the stuff you do have, and I promise you it will pay off.
3. BE NICE TO YOUR TEACHERS
Honestly this shouldn’t even have to be something that I have to remind people, but here we are.
In sixth form and particularly college, there’s much less of a power imbalance between students and teachers than there is in school; we’re on the same grounds, we’re both pretty independent, and we’re both there doing what we’re doing because we want to be. So have some respect.
A lot of the time at colleges, teachers have actually had experience in the field that they’re teaching and they’re so genuinely excited about the topics; one of the best things I’ve found at my college is how enthusiastic the teachers are, and how much interest they have in anything you have to say, especially if it’s relevant to the subject.
Also, when you show respect to teachers, they show respect to you. Many a time I’ve been given a short but extended deadline on a piece of work just because I’ve dropped a teacher an email or spoken to them before/after class, and in the words of one teacher, ‘the fact that you’re concerned enough to ask is enough proof that you’re putting effort in’.
But yeah. Talk to your teachers. Let them know if you’re missing a class. They’re human beings; don’t be a dick.
4. GO TO ALL VISITS / EVENTS / WORK EXPERIENCE
Not all places do a lot of these, but I know my college has done a few bits. What I mean by this is things such as higher education/career fairs, work exploration, and visits from people in specific careers. Even if you think that it isn’t relevant to you at all, you could learn or come across something that could be beneficial or helpful to your future, a qualification, or even just enjoy an hour or so.
I did an afternoon at the StonePillow Homeless Shelter in my town; I didn’t change my mind about my career, I didn’t gain any qualifications from it, but I definitely found it interesting and it certainly had an impact on my worldview.
On the same note, join a club. Not only is this something which can be later used on CVs and personal statements, but you can learn a lot of skills which can help you in your actual subjects.
5. REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE NOT SUPERIOR
Not exactly a tip, but something that I really think A Level students need to keep in mind.
There’s a big thing that I keep seeing of A Level students joking about being better than people doing other courses (BTEC, apprenticeships, vocational, etc), and it’s not true at all. Everybody is working equally hard to get the qualifications that THEY need to get to where THEY want to go.
If you’re thinking like this, just stop.
I really hope this was helpful to anybody considering A Levels - best of luck to anybody currently sitting exams!
There is only one person you had your eyes on ever since you started high school, and he will never be yours. Not now, not ever. Your feet are grounded to the floor, just as the game ended as you watched his girl wearing jersey running up to him for a hug, and slowly you felt your heart begin to shatter.
You could see him smiling as his hands were wrapped around her waist, securely and filled up to joy as she screamed happily for the final football game. Your school won by a landslide, by him running toward the end goal in victory, pandemonium breaking out from the bleachers as the other team lost. But you’re here, not having the enjoyment of the win or any of the excitement as you watch the couple. He’s swinging her around in his arms, laughing with his honey sweet voice and kissing her from her forehead and her cheeks, her lips, her nose, from the ecstasy he’s experiencing. That was when your first heartbreak destroyed you, ruining your weak heart, and the first time you felt like crushed diamonds and broken into pieces.
Seokjin: You were at a small fan meet and the boys of BTS were playing a game. They were split into teams and the MC told each team to find certain items, and the fans would give the items to the members if they had them. Jin had given you various glances throughout this game, always asking you first if you had the item the MC was asking for.
“An angel plushie or keychain!” the mc called next.
Seokjin shot straight to you once again but instead of asking you for an angel plushie, he grabbed your arm and helped you up.
At your confused look he smiled, held the mic up to his mouth and said, “I didn’t find an angel plushie, but a real life angel! I believe I’ve won this round MC!”
I’M SORRY BUT WE ALL KNOW HE’S A CHEESEBALL AND THIS WOULD TOTALLY HAPPEN OKAY?!
Yoongi: You were walking back to your allotted office space where you were writing lyrics for your groups debut when Yoongi caught your eye from across the hall. He was looking at you with slightly widened eyes when he realized you were looking at him too. He instantly gave you a shy smile (like in the gif) and you started walking towards him without realizing it.
You: “Hey, you’re…You’re sort of a mad genius with lyrics do you know that??”
/why did that come out of your mouth first thing??/
He let out a puff of air and laughed, “Yeah I kind of am aren’t I? Are you in a new group here or something? I’ve never seen you here before.”
Still embarrassed from blurting out the first thing that came to your mind when you saw him you said, “Yeah actually… I was just on my way to write some songs for our debut…”
“Ah, well,” he smiled at you even wider then before, “I look forward to the next lyrical genius emerging from the rookie groups. And… If you ever need some pointers just seek me out. I’m here all the time I’m sure we’ll see each other again.”
You did see him again. And you did ask for pointers, but only so you guys got to spend more than a few minutes at a time together.
Due to each reaction being a mini-story (I’m sorry for getting carried away again) the rest of their reactions will be under the cut
For freshman going into art school: the bare bones recommendations
So ya chose to go to an art school… That’s great! 4 years of coffee and easy mac with a tin of paint thinner are in your future, friend!
But what do you actually need for an art school? Do you need the master set of pastels and oils or do you just need a pencil? Honestly… It depends on the school.
BUT!! From my own personal experience at the Kansas City Art Institute, I’m going to make a list of things to bring and what not to bring (at least on move in day).
HERE WE GO!
Every college is different on how their dorms work. Some are communal (like KCAI) some are single room apartments. But these basics should help you know what to buy and what to leave behind
( NOTE: every college has a different guide on what to bring and what not to bring. Please adhere to your school’s rules to avoid fines.)
YES list–the things you absolutely should bring
-mini fridge (2.5 cubic ft is good, if you share with your roommate you can go bigger)
-microwave; you OR your roommate. no one needs 2 microwaves.
-string lights. for when ya wanna see your desk but your roommate’s asleep.
-small trashcan. bring a pack of trashbags–draw string is the best.
-shower caddy/bag with flip flops. shower shoes are expensive, flip flops work the same.
-house shoes. for those cold days and walking to the bathroom.
-a small shelf/storage ottoman/storage seat. You want to have space to store your dry foods and textbooks, but you wanna be able to have a seat other than your desk chair.
-shoe organizer. whether it actually holds your shoes or not, this is great or organizing things. socks, cleaning supplies, hairspray and febreeze are off your desk and out of your closet.
-door mirror. you can get some pretty good ones for cheap at walmart or target. be sure of your door dimensions first though.
-2nd phone charger/long phone cable. for charging your phone in bed or at your desk. you never know how far away the outlet will be.
-fairly new power strip. just to be safe and to plug all your stuff into.
-body pillow if you don’t like cold walls.
-a notebook for each class that involves reading or note taking. you might think you can use a binder for all your classes, but easier organization and lighter backpacks are always good. also keep a highlighter and pen with each notebook. it’ll be well worth it, trust me. no one likes losing pens on exam days.
-at least 2 rolls of quarters (about $20). laundry. it costs $. at KCAI my laundry usually runs at $3.25 because i add a little more drying time.
-some sort of storage for your desk that isn’t super heavy. I’m currently using both a plastic crate from walmart for books and a cardboard box to keep stuff away from where I work.
-water filter pitcher. water purity is different everywhere, and even though the water may be clean, a lot of people get sick their first week in a new area just because of the water difference. a filter eases that discomfort just a bit more.
-folding laundry hamper. I say folding because it’s easier on move in day and it holds more. win win!
-basic cleaning supplies. messes happen.
-ETHERNET Cable. the wi-fi WILL go out while you’re at school. it’s just going to. so have an ethernet cable the proper length from the plug to your desk for your computer. (Note: ethernet is only best when the wi-fi is out. it connects to main campus computers and that’s dangerous. PLEASE only use when the wi-fi is down.)
NO!! list–leave this behind.
-your massive collection of books. I have too many here myself, but you’re not gonna read or use personal reference books as much as you think. Bring only what you use more than once a month.
-stereo system. no one likes overly noisy neighbors.
-pots and pans. unless you live in a swanky apartment dorm with a kitchen, you’re never gonna use that stuff. a coffee mug, bowl, and a microwave are as about as 4-star restaurant as you’re gonna get.
-movies in cases/videogames WITH cases. use a cd binder. works the same and saves space.
-a bunch of fancy clothes. you’ll really only need 2, maybe 3 nice outfits in art school. pack 2 weeks of tops with 1 week of pants. saves space and laundry you have to do if you alternate weeks. coats, jackets, and cardigans are up to your style.
-anything that takes up more floor space than your fridge or ottoman. UNLESS you know for a fact that you’re gonna set up your desk under your bed in a “T” formation, there’s not much room. so consider a floor pouf or a cushion to go behind the ottoman to make a seat with a back.
-a bunch of purses, shoes, or hats. Again, UNLESS you know exactly how the room is laid out it’s hard to figure out space. if you use a purse, 2 maybe 3 is the most you’ll need. shoes are basically this: everyday, everyday #2, shoes for rain/snow, 2 pairs of nicer shoes, and flip flops for the room if you don’t use houseshoes.
-your vast collection of coffee/tea mugs. I’m sorry, but you’re gonna have to pick favorites. at most you’ll use 2-3. I personally only have 1 here and then I have my water bottle.
Other than those things, check with your school list when it’s available to you to see what you need and what you don’t. Once you’ve filled the checklist THEN you can start bringing other things like books, pillows, electric kettles, irons, etc.
Every school is different, and KCAI has its own guidelines on what is or isn’t allowed. See what rules you can wiggle around and disguise based on your own needs. (aka not illegal stuff. duh. but like mattress pads and extension cords.
Now that the dorm is covered, let’s get to actual art stuff!
The short answer: every school’s different. and KCAI’s freshman/ foundations year is unique compared to other schools’. The reason being is that aside from animation and film, foundation year is like a free sample buffet on what majors there are. We have still lifes, charcoal, woodshop, illustration, writing, sculpture, painting, and individualized work all year. 2nd semester is when classes get more focused but still. it’s kinda crazy but really nice in the long run.
The budget that’s recommended IS a bit um… well… depends on the teacher. I personally had a teacher who liked for us to do a bunch of stuff without fully using our materials or would have assignments where new materials would run out and we’d have to buy more.
A safe budget for supplies is about $200 per semester. Now, that’s for supplies only. Take into account food and amazon shipping and emergencies for the rest of your $.
Stuff you’ll need that they don’t tell you in the beginning of the year
KCAI offers a “FOUNDATION KIT” at the beginning of the year that is about $250 all together. The list they give you is well organized so you can buy stuff on your own to save money. See what you already have or can buy for cheaper prices before you buy the kit.
Now, again, every teacher is different. Here’s the BASIC list based on mine and other friends’ experiences.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. usually comes with foundation kit. I got a nice Superbonder dual temp. gun at Hobby Lobby with a stand. Works great and has a long cord.
-more hot glue sticks than you thought was possible.
sold in the KCAI campus art store.
sculpture and cardboard are gonna be big parts in the beginning of the year, but you’ll be thankful later on. be SURE you’re using dual temp. sticks and the proper size for your glue gun.
-sandpaper/ sandpaper block.
sold in the KCAI campus art store.
not too expensive, like $5. the sanders are gonna be busy in woodshop.
sold in the KCAI campus art store.
wood dust and/chips hurt. just get some simple safety glasses.
-masks. sold in the KCAI campus art store. not too expensive. get a new one every 3 weeks. about 2 needed in total.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. OR go to walmart/home depot for cheaper. mine is a 12 ft self-lock one. it’s pretty good.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. I think it comes in the foundation kit, but you’re gonna run out. get at walmart for cheaper.
-(not a need but it’s super helpful) trashbag taped to your desk. saves trips to the trashcan and helps your space stay tidier.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. to carve screenprinting rubber stamps when you get into pattern. PERSONALLY I ordered a set of wood whittling tools on amazon that work the same, were cheaper, and work on more than just rubber stamps (pumpkin carving!!)
-baby wipes. you don’t really NEED these, as sinks exist, but when you work with charcoal and you don’t have enough time between the next drawing or lunch, these help a bunch.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. teachers recommend the metal ones, I just use the clear plastic ones. less distracting when critiquing.
-BIG ruler, more of a yard stick.
sold in the KCAI campus art store(?) I think it comes in the foundation kit, but you can always just buy a cheaper metal yard stick or share with a friend.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. comes with foundation kit. I’m not talking #2 pencil you use all the time, I’m talking 4B and 6H and such. Get a decent set with a sharpener.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. comes with foundation kit. this charcoal goes away FAST. get an extra box before classes start.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. for when your charcoal is just not erasing.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. comes with foundation kit. the blade is gonna dull down eventually so get an extra for later.
sold in the KCAI campus art store. think it comes with the foundation kit. Now, I personally am terrified of box cutters because I over-think injury possibilities, so I just use my x-acto knife (hello dull blades). But unless you’re a scaredy-cat like me, a simple box cutter is needed.
-cutting mat, self-healing.
sold in the KCAI campus art store (I thiiiiink). those weird green mats you see in sewing sections or on artist speed-draws? yeah you’re gonna need one. Big is good, small is fine too.
Other stuff depends on the teacher. Trips to Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Blick, Creative Coldsnow (kansas city), or other places for supplies IS gonna happen. If you don’t drive, find friends who are doing supply runs too and carpool.
Art school is crazy and it’s fun, but it IS college. So keep a weekly schedule, take notes, and do your homework.
Characters: Jared x Reader, Jensen, mentions of Rob and Richard
Summary: Jared and Jensen are talking at their panel, and Jared gets to talking about his wife.
Italics are Flashbacks
This is my own entry for Kayla’s Birthday Challenge! :) I chose to do the quote “Cinderella never asked for a prince. She asked for a night off and a dress.” and the date Dance classes. :) Some of it is from Jared’s perspective, which was fun to write. So enjoy the fluff!
My lame explanation for not posting on Tumblr. I only work 3 days a week, but I covered 3 shifts on top of my 3 full shifts.
“I’m here to relieve you.”
Lance doesn’t take his eyes off the ocean.
Shiro coughs into his hand, before he speaks up again.
“I said, I’m here to relieve you kid.”
“Go home Shiro, you’re still sick.”
He coughs harshly into his hand to support lance’s accusation.
“Yeah, well Hunks got it worse which is why I can’t have one of my guard open and close for 2 days straight.”
“It’s been 3 and I’m sure another day won’t kill me.”
“…but it does make the scene unsafe. I can’t trust my lifeguard to make the best judgement after 3 shifts in a row.”
Lance turns to face Shiro
“…and I can’t trust my supervisor to make the best decisions when he is still recovering from pneumonia.”
Their staring contest is short lived when Shiro turn his head to cough.
Lance takes this opportunity to hold his grounds.
“It doesn’t matter Shiro, I won’t be alone. The new lifeguard you hired starts today, and the last thing we want is for him to think this station is a living pétri dish.”
Lance looked agaped.
He loved Shiro, he became a lifeguard specifically to work with his team on the south side, and he could proudly admit that he learned everything he knew from him. So he knew the fuzzy memory was a side effect of his illness.
“Shiro. I’ve got this. Get some rest and I’ll handle the New guy and I’ll show him the run down too.”
The expression on the older boys face shows that he’s got a headache over this entire scenario, but he trust Lance’s advice and decided to head home after all.
He wouldn’t Leave Lance if he didn’t trust him. The boys worked with him for years now, and he has definitely made an impact on the community. The district had even offered him a station on the North Shore with a team of his own.
The North shore was just as gnarly as the South side, but they had sun kissed babes straight out of a magazine, so Shiro knows that Lance could leave anytime if he wanted.
“Thanks Lance, I appreciate this and lance…
Lance looks at Shiro with utmost respect and focus.
”…don’t push yourself. I don’t want another guard down.“
When Shiro is off the beach and out of sight, Lance can’t help but sigh. Hes down right exhausted, and he’s pretty sure he’s going to catch whatever his coworkers got. If he can just stay on his feet until Shiro is fully recovered, and for Hunk to get over the worse than Lance can crash and burn without any worry about who’s watching the beach.
He’s been working on this beach since he was a sophomore in High school. It was just a part time job for quick cash, but after his first rescue he fell in love with his job.
The beach always brings in tourist, But he is always friendly with the locals.
He says while he walks the beach.
Pidge is a bright young boy who always sits and reads on the beach. Lance is pretty sure he has never seen him swim in all years that he worked as a Lifeguard, but he is never quick to Judge.
“Hey Lance, you here again?” Pidge asked with raised brows.
“I practically live here.” He laughs before it dies into a harsh cough.
“You okay? Your looking…” he stops to find the right words.
“You look pale.”
“Well I missed my classes today to be here, and Both my co-workers are patient zero. Your the genius you tell me.”
Pidge just grins.
“I don’t know if I’m a genius, but southside swells are coming in, and you don’t have to be a genius to know what that means.”
“The princess.” Lance whispers.
“Who’s the princess?” Lance turns to the unfamiliar voice. It’s his duty to be paying attention to the beach, so it catches him off guard that someone has been standing behind him, listening in.
“Only the greatest Surfer in this galaxy.”
“Oh.” The boy doesn’t say much more, but he’s wearing a red shirt with yellow shorts, and it only takes Lance a couple more glances to realize he’s the new Lifeguard Shiro hired.
“You must be Keith.” Lance puts his hand out to greet him formally.
“Yeah, but you’re not Shiro.”
“Lance actually. You’ll be shadowing me today, and hopefully Shiro will be back tomorrow to finish all the paperwork.”
The ebony hair boy just nods in agreement. He’s surprisingly quiet,and Lance can’t help but stare at his mullet.
“You look like you came out of an 80’s film with that hairstyle, you can tie it back can’t you?”
Pidge bubbles in laughter.
Keith on the other hand is self consciously touching his hair.
“I guess, if I need too?”
Lance just Waves off the conversation.
“Sorry Pidge, but we’ve got training to cover.”
Lance just Waves him off.
Keith follows closely behind Lance, as he moves towards the yellow station.
“Not to have listened in on a conversation that isn’t mine but who’s “Princess?” Keith asked, hoping to star small talk.
“You must be knew here.”
“Yeah, maybe like a month now?” He thinks.
“Princess Allura, she’s a professional surfer. She’s been traveling, catching waves around the world, but she’s grew up here.”
“Wow, thats cool to have a celebrity come to this beach.”
Lance just smiles.
“You’ve got a lot to learn.”
Keith doesn’t say much, just tilts his head to one side.
“Are you familiar with currents?”
Lance asked, to keep the conversation going but he know, the new guy has to know if Shiro hired him.
“Yeah, There was an earthquake a few weeks ago from Japan, I heard it was going to affect the Southside.”
“We call those Southside swells.”
Keith again just nods.
“Allura is in town, and she’s here for the surf, if you follow her twitter, then you would already know that, which means any of her local followers are probably going to be here to watch, or try to surf.”
“A lot of amateur show offs who are going to need our help.”
Lance continues to go through the training regimen, and the protocols
“I think that’s everything, and if you have questions you can ask me.” Lance coughs.
“Are you okay?”
Lance just sighed in his own exhaustion.
“Yup, don’t worry I’ll be fine.”
“Do we normally have shifts by ourselves?” Keith asked.
Hes been extremely careful to give Lance and the beach his full attention, but now that he’s open to ask, he can’t help but let all his concerns and nerves bubble out.
“Your the only Lifeguard here, and we’ve been at it for a couple hours now, aren’t we suppose to be working at least in pairs?”
Lance knew the question would eventually come up, but he’s so tired of talking already and he can feel his throats get raw
“Matt went off to College, which is why we were hiring, unfortunately Shiro and Hunk our other guards are both out sick.” Lance explains after clearing his throat..
“Are you sick?”
The questions is curt, but it takes Lance by surprise.
“What! No… I, I’ve covered shifts all week I’m just tired.
The expression on Keith’s face is knowing, but he doesn’t voice it.
They manage to keep the area safe for most of the morning. Everyone once in a while, Lance tells Keith to announce when the shore breaks are unsafe over speakers, but everyone manages to follow direction.
It’s almost a boring morning, but Lance can’t help but be grateful. He doesn’t want to get in the water today, he’s already shivering under his uniform, even with the sun out.
“Are you sure your okay?”
“I know I’m new but I can…”
Lance shoots up from his slouched position.
He’s running on the hot sand, and he’s in the water almost instantly.
Keith Just stand awkwardly in the station watching as Lance pulls a little girl into his arms, slowly letting the waves bring him back in, head never letting the girls head bob under the water.
By the time the Keith is on the beach, Lance is already talked by with the girls parents.
“Is, um… Is she okay.”
Lance is drenches in sea water looking at Keith incredulously.
“Perfect. No thanks to you.”
He spits as he walks back to grab a towel.
“Are you okay?”
Keith asked handing him a dry towel.
“Stop. Let’s get this straight new guy. Stop, asking if I’m okay. I get that your new, but you need to stop worrying about and keep your eyes on this beach.”
Lance tell Keith between wet soggy coughs.
“We have a perfect record this year for no incidents that require any medical attention, and I trust Shiro wouldn’t hire an idiot so I need you to help us keep that record clear. Focus on the beach and the swimmers, not me.”
“… You look hot.”
An embarrassing blush runs across Lance’s cheeks.
Keith presses a hand on Lance’s forehead.
Then slides the back of his hand to the blush on lance’s face.
haha i lov him my first born son, my illness friend, my bab
Genre;; fluff + uhh college!au,, soulmate!au, musical…theatre!au??, graduation!au at the end?????? is that a thing really i don’t knoww
mentioning of like an alternative version of park woojin’s dark past,, that damn dark past…. I had to warn you
Pairing;; Park Woojin x reader
Requested;; no ho ho ho i’m writing this so this account doesn’t die ++ this is also kind of for the anon who asked me to make the soulmate thing into a series sorry i never replied lol but im in a park woojin mood so woojin comes next
Soulmate AU Type;; soulmates experience the same illnesses at the same time until they get in a relationship together (?? is that the right way to put it idk) + soulmates are confirmed by a flash of light when you touch for the first time after you start dating
Summary;; Your best friend Woojin is alway sick when you are sick. You brush it off as being because you spend pretty much every second of every day with him, but maybe it’s something more…
don’t tell anyone the idea from this came from this amazingly fun fact;; woojin is 2 months and 27 days younger than me AND he got shingles EXACTLY the same time in his lifetime as me; so 2 months and 27 days after me; so he is my illness amigo
you and woojin basically grew up together
from the moment his family moved in next door to you you’ve been best friends
i mean the friendship started in a very… different way
you used to hear him singing and dancing in his backyard
and you sang back at the top of your lungs in a desperate attempt to start a conversation lol
when you were in middle school you two used to write your own little musicals and perform them for your families
they weren’t particularly uhh technical?? but they were adorable and your families loved it
there’s so many embarrassing videos of those musicals dfjshdf
when you and woojin both caught chickenpox at the exact same time and were confined to your homes
both of your parents winked at each other
they had the idea that y’all were soulmates because duh that’s how soulmates work
This is the first time I’ve actually shared headcanons (and they’re really dumb). These are for the movie just because I’ve been thinking about it a lot, but I have ones for the series if anyone is interested.
Other than Nya
and Kai, Cole and Jay have known each other the longest. They used to
be neighbours before Jay’s parents moved to the outskirts of Ninjago City.
Kai and Nya don’t have parents. They
both have jobs to be able to afford their apartment, although Kai
insists he could just work two jobs so Nya has more time to study and
focus on her grades.
and Zane get the best grades out the group, across all of their
subjects (the two of them have a friendly competition going whenever big
tests come up, which the rest of the group find terrifying). Jay comes
next with pretty good grades, especially in science and IT, then there’s
Cole and Lloyd (they get roughly the same) with middle-ish grades, Cole does best in art and music while Lloyd’s better at english and foreign languages. Kai has the worst grades of the bunch (but not bad grades, he just gets Cs mainly), he’s better at hands-on subjects like woodwork.
They often have movie nights at their base. Jay likes romance
and sci-fi, Cole and Kai enjoy action movies, Lloyd prefers things with
deep stories and morals, Nya likes monster movies and horror (she has nerves of steel) while Zane enjoys kung fu movies as well as animated films.
argue over who had the most fans. It got to the point they did an
online poll about it. Turns out Lloyd had the most fans, he was kind of
smug about it for weeks.
have a team fridge which they all keep food in. It used to get raided
during the night so they set up a camera to see who it was. Turns out it
was Wu in his sleep.
they stay late at base after a battle to hang out and work on the mechs
they take it in turns to get the food. When it’s Kai or Nya they
usually get takeout, Cole buys whatever he can find at the local store,
Zane cooks for them on this portable stove he has, Jay brings some of
his mom’s cooking to share and Lloyd gets pastries from the nearest
Koko found out about the ninja thing she started visiting their base
often. She makes sure they all do their homework, are getting enough
sleep, are eating properly and brings them snacks. It embarrasses Lloyd so much.
have gaming tournaments sometimes. Usually the finalists are either
Kai, Jay or Nya. If it’s Kai and Nya the sibling rivalry is so thick you
could cut it with a knife. With Jay and Kai there’s a lot of playful
shoving which ends up with one of them falling off the couch. Then when
it’s Nya and Jay it’s a lot quieter, just super tense.
have found fanfiction of people shipping the ninja together. Most of
the time it’s pretty funny, except when they ship Kai and Nya together.
Kai actually passed out when they first found out, and he didn’t wake up
for an hour. They were worried they’d broken him.
matter how old they get the Ninja will always go trick-or-treating. Kai
insists they do it, and no one has the heart to tell him no because of
how excited he gets.
After the movie the group decided to look after Meowthra, they take turns feeding them and giving them belly rubs. It’s basically their mascot now.
who hogs the duvet Akaashi, he likes bundling himself up in it and Bokuto’s naturally really warm so he doesn’t mind~ when it’s really cold during the winter, they’ll become a deluxe blanket burrito since Bokuto + duvet = maximum warm and Akaashi loves it
who texts/rings to check how their day is going Bokuto! Sometimes he texts during class, but Akaashi is diligent and won’t respond until afterwards; it’s usually just things like “what are you having for lunch today?!” “i hate math, it makes my brain hurt…” but sometimes Bokuto will text “i miss you </3″ and during break time Akaashi will quickly text back “I miss you too”
who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts Bokuto! He’s actually pretty observant about knowing what Akaashi likes, and often gives gifts that surprise him~
who gets up first in the morning They’re both pretty heavy sleepers and can honestly sleep like 11 hours straight; it takes 5 alarms with the ringer on full blast to get them out of bed in the mornings, but once they shower they’re fully awake and ready to go!
who suggests new things in bed Bokuto, Akaashi’s a bit more reserved about these sorts of things, but Bokuto wants to learn all the different ways of making Akaashi feel good~
who cries at movies Bokuto, Akaashi doesn’t cry easily when it comes to movies but Bokuto gets caught up in all the emotions
who gives unprompted massages Bokuto! He likes helping Akaashi relax and his fingers are strong but gentle; he usually peppers Akaashi with kisses at the same time
who fusses over the other when they’re sick They both fuss over each other, but Bokuto’s way more intense about it and becomes a nervous chatterbox because he’s so worried; Akaashi ends up having to calm him down and he can sound exasperated but he knows this is one of the ways Bokuto expresses his love
who gets jealous easiest Akaashi, Bokuto makes friends with anyone willing to be friends with him and Akaashi knows how easy it is to be wooed by his passion, power, and good looks, so he gets in the habit of observing people who act close with Bokuto and mentally file them as a threat or not; but at the same time, Akaashi knows that Bokuto can be really troublesome and usually reassures himself with the knowledge that he’s the only one who can truly deal with the whole Bokuto package
who has the most embarrassing taste in music Uhh I feel like Bokuto listens to hip hop, alternative rock, pop, and dubstep, while Akaashi listens to classical music, jazz, and electropop
who collects something unusual Akaashi collects owl-related things (plushies, keychains, he even has an owl onesie) since he thinks owls are cute (I wonder why…)
who takes the longest to get ready Bokuto because he has to spend time spiking his hair~
who is the most tidy and organised Akaashi, although he still makes small messes sometimes; Bokuto’s a little bit more of a whirlwind and leaves some clothes on the floor, some dishes by the sink, but when it’s time to clean he does his fair share
who gets most excited about the holidays Bokuto gets more outwardly excited, but Akaashi gets excited internally! They love being able to spend time doing things they don’t usually have time for amidst school and volleyball, like marathoning TV, going to the beach, sleeping in, going to hot springs
who is the big spoon/little spoon Bokuto is the big spoon, Akaash is the little spoon~
who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports They both get competitive, although it takes some egging on to get Akaashi to participate
who starts the most arguments He doesn’t start it purposefully, but Bokuto’s fluctuating mood can happen at the wrong times and Akaashi doesn’t always have the patience to deal with it, so he’ll usually go do his own thing and leave Bokuto to stew, and once he comes back Bokuto’s either snapped out of it or Akaashi will talk him through it
who suggests that they buy a pet Akaashi! He likes cats and Bokuto thinks they’re cute so they end up getting two~ one of them is named “Val” and the other “Libra”
what couple traditions they have Massaging each other’s hands after a game; Wednesdays are Chinese food nights; matching ugly Christmas sweaters; making nachos with the works when marathoning a TV show; going to festivals and winning prizes for each other; going to the countryside for a week in the summer to get away from the city and enjoy nature; Akaashi bakes heart shaped cookies for Bokuto on Valentine’s day, while Bokuto buys him chocolate candy; marathoning Marvel films during winter break
what tv shows they watch together Sense 8, The Flash, Black Mirror, Bob’s Burgers
what other couple they hang out with KuroTsukki, Konoha/Komi, KenHina
how they spend time together as a couple Discussing volleyball; practicing plays; study sessions; buying snacks after school; watching Pacific Rim when Bokuto randomly gets in the mood for it; Bokuto warming Akaashi up when they’re outside and even with three layers and a scarf he still feels cold; Akaashi making their lunches for the next day and Bokuto hugging him from behind as he does so; Akaashi kissing Bokuto’s fingertips and Bokuto kissing Akaashi’s forehead, cheeks, nose, and mouth; going for picnics and lying on the grass and holding hands as they gaze at the clouds; wiping away tears, hugging each other fiercely, murmuring “I love you forever and always”
who made the first move Bokuto, he just got to the point where he couldn’t hide it any longer and blurted “Akaash I like you so much would you pretty please go out with me?!” Akaashi responded “Bokuto we’re still having practice” and Bokuto went into dejected mode until Akaashi added “that wasn’t a no”
who brings flowers home Bokuto! He likes placing them behind Akaashi’s ear because they look good on him~
who is the best cook Akaashi, especially when it comes to cooking meat; Bokuto can make basic dishes like pasta
requested by anon: “could you write a college au of minghao please? if you do, tsym (and please include a reader in it, i’m sorry if it’s too much to ask for)”
Admin note: I wrote and rewrote this and researched and rewrote and deleted and wrote this again so many times, it’s not funny (ok maybe a little). I’m sorry if this wasn’t any good, I legit had such a tough time with this one, well anyway, I hope you enjoy!
Minghao is a Performance Music Major
particularly with a dance focus
when he’s not sitting around in some rehearsal room in the music building practicing his vocals or reviewing for the next postmodernism in dance exam
he can usually be found with the other music majors
usually sitting in the outside picnic area of campus
or running through some of the choreos created for the next final project out on the lawn with Soonyoung, Jun, and Chan
with Joshua (vocal performance major) playing guitar
or with Jihoon telling Mingyu to stop blaring rap long enough for him to finish composing
which causes Mingyu and Vernon (contemporary production majors) to both defend Drake as a musical artist
and that Jihoon should stop composing his boring classically arranged piece
which Jihoon says he can’t because he’s a freaking music theory and composition major and it’s due soon
while the rest are debating the musical merits of the latest pop sensation and whether or not the hook is repeated over and over
“‘Despacito’ has the same chord progressions throughout” “Ok no, there’s a modulation in the bridge…” “DEEESSPAAACITOO”
and Minghao’s music major friends may seem a bit like a mess
but they’re all really close friends
they host recitals every winter and spring
the whole music and drama department
and Minghao is always one of the front performers especially from the dance program
though someone should give him more vocal lines in the shows, why can’t the professors realize his vocals are amazing and that he never gets enough lines smfh
Minghao’s best classes outside of his major are those relating to liberal arts
especially lit and psychology
the only two courses you shared with him since they were mandatory for graduation
you both have talked before, but mostly just the universal complaining and groaning over homework assignments that characterize every college student ever
since your major was in media studies, his in performance arts
it was understandable that you didn’t really get a chance to get to know Minghao, since students with the same majors normally spend a lot of time with people from their own departments
but that’s how you always saw Minghao
since the media studies classes were in the humanities and social science building
which is a little past the music building
his group of music majors is always sitting on the lawn in between
and you’ve noticed little things Minghao does
like how he always opens the doors for the instrumentalists carrying in cases in the morning
or the way he acts like he’s done with his friends 100% but then ends up buying them breakfast and making sure they eat
and while it seems as though Minghao is always rehearsing for one thing or another
you sometimes see him skating down the campus on his skateboard or reading in the library
stuff not even assigned to him by your lit professor
joined by Jun, Wonwoo, and Joshua, or other random music majors
they sort of claimed the back corner of the library
one day your lit professor decides it’s been too quiet and boring
time to assign a huge project that could potentially make or break your grade
because college professors like torturing students as hobbies
and better yet, it’s a partner research essay and visual presentation
which works for you because whoever your partner is, you can just borrow some equipment from the media productions classroom to get the visual presentation part done
and as the teacher starts reading off names
all you can think about is how you hope you don’t get stuck with someone who won’t do their work
the professor calls out Utopia by Thomas More
the one book on the list you really wanted
and then “Minghao, y/n.”
jumping up and silently thanking the heavens for giving you such an easy book to work with
so many freaking things you could talk about, you’re so excited
you almost forgot that you had a partner as you go up to collect the book and the directions
Minghao walks up to you quietly
“So when do you want to meet to work on the essay and visual presentation?”
“Oh uh, we can do tomorrow at the student café if you want.” you tell him
the two of you meet the next day and split the work evenly in half before
“I have a postmodernism in dance exam tomorrow so I’ll take-off first.”
“That’s fine, we have a whole month, we can chill.” you said smiling
Minghao returned the smile and turned around to leave when
“Here, call me if you need help with your half, I’ll finish my half of the essay by the end of the week, so we can begin the visual presentation.”
he hands you his number and you just nod and assure him he can just leave
with Minghao off to study, you decide to go work on your half in the library
the library is usually open quite late anyway
you start researching the ways More wrote his socio-political satire
but with the amount of sleep you’ve been getting, you fall asleep on top of your laptop
and sure, the library isn’t for napping
but screw it, you’re running on 3 hours of sleep in the last two days, what else can you do?
Minghao walks into the library a little while later, looking for a global dance history book when he sees you sleeping on your laptop
hair cascading over the table as you breathe slowly in and out
he smiles unconsciously
he had noticed this before
but you’re really pretty
while the closest interactions you’ve both had together were the random jokes Wonwoo would tell you and Minghao in psych
he knew you were a really nice person, since you and the video production team would always film the shows and performances he did with the rest of his department
he had even seen some of your short student films, the ones that he could only describe as art from someone who must really love what they do
and seeing you calmly napping was cute
so he goes to the nearest vending machine impulsively and buys a can of coffee before he puts it behind your laptop that you’re using as a pillow
“What are you doing Minghao?” Jun says giving Minghao a sly smile while coming up behind him
“Nothing.” he laughs
“Doesn’t look like nothing.” Jun smirks
“We have a project for lit, she’s my partner.” he said shrugging his shoulders while looking down at you
“Does she always sleep here?”
Jun nods his head slowly, an understanding look on his face
“Yea you like her, imma call it now.”
“Yah!” Minghao says punching Jun’s arm
“Hey I called it so remember this moment in the future and thank me later.”
Minghao shakes his head
“Well, Wonwoo and I are ready to go, let’s get something to drink.”
when you wake up and shut your laptop you see the can of coffee sitting in front of your closed laptop, with a post-it note
“Keep up the hard work partner! Fighting! -Minghao” you read
you laugh and take the can with you
over the next few weeks, you and Minghao work together on the lit project
and when it’s done and you both get an A-
you both celebrate with ice cream from the student café
and funny too
he makes you laugh quite a bit by trying poorly to imitate the lit professor
the two of you kept texting about random hw assignments even after the project was over about anything like movies you wanted to see or concerts that were nearby
you got to know more about his dream to be a performer
he was so passionate about it
they way he talked about performing was the same way you felt about filming in media studies
each a form of art, but each a way to express it in your own style
by the time the winter showcase comes along, your professor assigns you to camera 3 on stage for the show
and you text Minghao
“Hey, break a leg at the concert :)”
“Breaking appendages would actually be a bad thing XD” he texts you back
“You know what I meant!”
“Yea haha, are you coming to watch?” your heart skips a beat a little reading his message
you watch as your phone shows that “Minghao is typing” message a few times before it stops
“I mean you don’t have to if you don’t want to”
“I’m filming so of course I’ll be there ;)” you text back
“Oh ok lol”
you laughed at his short response
when you go to the performance hall the night before opening night to set up the audio systems with some of the other video production crew
you see Minghao and one of his friends running through a choreography
you stare at him amazed, the choreo included them dancing with a white ribbon connecting the two of them, which should have gotten tangled countless times but didn’t
you didn’t really want to intrude on the rehearsal, so you leave him a can of coffee with a post-it note on it by the stage
“I believe I owe you a coffee, don’t forget to rest, I believe in you, fighting!-y/n :)”
Minghao is internally screaming at how cute you are when he reads it
“JUST ASK HER OUT ALREADY AND STOP BOTHERING ME.”
Jun’s trying to work on the choreo and practically yells at Minghao who’s told the guys the story for like the fifth time
“Ok but isn’t she so cute? 'don’t forget to rest, I believe in you’”
“Minghao, I called this remember?” Jun say laughing
Minghao smacks him on the arm again
so Minghao decides to finally gather up the courage
with you sitting in the desk next to him in lit
your knees inches away from each other
“Hey y/n wanna grab a dinner after the show or something?”
“Depends.” you say heart beat steadily increasing
“On what?” Minghao says trying to keep his cool
“On whether it’s a date or not.” you want to scream at yourself, where did this courage come from?!?!
“And if it is?” he smiles
“I’d be happy to.”
and when you’re filming the show that night, Minghao catches your eyes while waiting in the wings on stage left
and shoots you a wink
which nearly causes you to drop your camera
and you see him getting smacked by Jun
after the show, he brings you backstage
“Got the gardening club to get me these” he says handing you a small bunch of white carnations
“Aw they’re beautiful.”
“I ended up doing a lot of research on the significance of flowers thanks to a lit project, white carnations mean sweet and lovely.” he smiles shyly
“They also mean pure love.” you say smiling
“Yea, well… they’re just flowers to celebrate a show well-done.” he coughs blushing
“Let’s go for dinner, shall we?”
when all the other music majors found out
it was chaos
“HONESTLY Y/N DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY MUSIC MAJORS HAVE ATTACKED ME TODAY WITH QUESTIONS?” your friend from the media production course asked you
“It’s like some celebrity is dating you or something from this response!” she says shaking her head
and whenever you walk to the humanities building
Minghao bounds up and takes your hand
in front of both the departments
so you have the music majors screaming at Minghao
and the media studies majors cheering you on
it’s a mess
but Minghao just shrugs it off and wraps an arm around you
“Want to grab a coffee before lit?”
“Sure” you laugh
and he holds your hand as you both make your way to the student café
and the both of you lay on the lawn after sipping your lattes
hands intertwined staring up at the clouds in the sky
“Look, they look like white carnations.” you smile and point up at a cluster of clouds
just enjoying the light breeze of a spring day
when he pulls you closer until you’re laying on his arm
A bunch of people are asking about how my medical school interview went down considering I unusually got accepted the same day in lieu of having to wait a few weeks to find out. It’s a pretty interesting story, so here goes!
I went into SUNY at around 8:00 am for the interview. There were 3 other applicants, two girls and a guy, and we were low-key nervous. We talked about the other optometry schools we interviewed at, but I think deep down we all knew this was our first choice school. It’s the #2 ranked optometry school in the entire country, smack dab in the heart of NYC next to the New York public library and the beautiful Bryant Park. But since SUNY is very competitive and only accepts around 100 students each year, we were all on edge.
We were told online that the interview was more of a 3 person panelist interrogation. We were briefed by the admissions director, who seemed a bit more bubbly than usual, and then took the elevator up to the admissions office. There we found out that there was actually only 2 people on the panel, since one had to go to a big optometry conference in Chicago. I was the 3rd to be interviewed, so I talked to the others to pass the time and prepare myself. The first interview was supposed to last 30 minutes but was an hour long. The second applicant was also an hour long. Then it was my turn.
The 2 interviewers were very nice, one was a recent PhD and the other had worked there for around 30 years. They asked me about why I switched from Bio to Film and then back to Bio at the University of Miami, and about the research I did at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. I told them I’m very much into both art and science and UM offered great programs in both, so I wanted to explore both of the fields to see how I liked them. I ended up not liking the film industry and missed the challenge of the sciences, so I went back to school after graduating to finish my prerequisites. I said, if you would have asked me if I regretted my decision to switch majors when I graduated, I would have said yes because I spent 3 years taking those prerequisite classes, but now having taken them and acing them because I finally learned how to study, I have no reservations going into the medical field since I feel I can handle it now. It felt more conversational and less like an interrogation. I felt like I nailed all the points I needed to and explained my research involvement in great detail, so I left the interview feeling good…
…until I checked my phone and realized I was only in there with them for 30 minutes? The first two applicants got an hour each with them, why did I get the regular 30 minutes? The last applicant went in and I began stressing, replaying and over-analyzing what I had said to them over and over. What if she’s in there for an hour too and they kicked me out early because I’m not accepted? However, she also was in there for only 30 minutes, saying she wanted to ask them more questions but received a knock on the door to finish up. Maybe our interviews were shorter because we were behind schedule?
Either way, we took a tour with students and had lunch with them. I was a bit worried before the interview, but given this inconstancy I began freaking out internally, trying to rationalize the time discrepancy. Maybe the first two applicants had iffy applications and the panelists needed more time with them to iron out a few things? Maybe me and the other girl had less time because we were in better standing? But what if it’s the inverse and they gave the others more time because they’re definitely accepted and we’re not?
Finally, we all went back up to the interview room and we were briefed on financial loan and housing info, if we were to get accepted. The admissions director came back in and began telling us we would get an answer from SUNY in 2 to 3 weeks and began discussing the next steps we would expect if we were to not get accepted, if we were provisionally on a wait list, or if we were accepted. I tried not to sweat as he stared me right in the eye multiple times talking about not getting accepted, yet also looked me in the eye when talking about acceptance; I had a tough time reading his bubbly disposition.
Before he dismissed us, he asked something I wasn’t expecting, “Okay so, this is an interesting situation where you guys have a choice. When would you like to find out your results? Now or later?” We were all like… wat. We were silent for a bit, tensed up and slowly agreed that we’d want to know now. “Oh good, because all 4 of you are accepted.” I had a palpitation. We were in shock. We had talked before about reading this one student online who said that all 3 of the applicants got accepted that day and how cool that would be, but since there was 4 of us that probably wouldn’t happen. But it totally did. The other applicants and I traded info, realizing that this may not be our final goodbye as we would likely be attending together in 2018.
On the train home, it occurred to me what had probably happened. We were already accepted before we walked in the front door, maybe even as soon as we got the interview invitation. That’s why the admissions director was so bubbly, telling 4 nervous applicants that they got accepted after fooling them into thinking they had to wait weeks to find out must be the absolute highlight of his job. They kept saying we shouldn’t be nervous because we applied very early and they only accept 30% of applications anyway, so being there at all was a really good sign. But the fact that one panelist was missing was a dead giveaway for me in retrospect. I think our interviews didn’t really count, they just wanted to get to know us and show us around campus because they already knew we were going there. They could afford to have already accepted applicants be interviewed by only 2 people, so the real interviews to weed out the less competitive applicants can have that 3rd panelist present.
In the end, it was a nerve wracking experience, but one that I certainly will never forget. I can’t wait to begin optometry school next year! Thanks to everyone who stuck with me and supported me during the past several years. <3
Hey. So, I really adore your Thiam Headcanons and I would have some more for you: 1) what would they do at Halloween 2) who would throw the other a surprise birthday party 3) where do you see them in 10 (or more) years 4) who cooks and who bakes 5) any AU ideas for them and 6) what would their first vacation together be like? Thank you so much for sharing your amazing work with us!!
1) What would they do at halloween?
They would ppppppparty!
Halloween has always been Mason’s favourite holiday and Liam always gets dragged into it, not that he’s complaining. When they were kids they’d trick or treat but now they’re old enough to party and Mason will die before he lets them miss the chance to go to a proper Halloween party.
Theo pretends like he doesn’t care at first but the second Mason insists everyone dresses up Theo is off. Liam can’t shut him up for a week about what costume he might wear. It takes a while before Liam actually realises that it will be Theo’s first Halloween in ten years.
They end up going as batman and superman, it’s lame and cliche but they get to leer at each other in tight outfits all night so they’re pretty happy. When they eventually have to haul Mason and Corey back to their houses they go back to Liam’s and watch (judge) scary films together.
2) Who would throw the other a surprise birthday party?
The whole werewolf senses make surprise birthday parties difficult. Liam tried to throw one for Theo but he heard the heartbeats of the people hiding before they’d even got near to Liam’s house.
3) Where do you see them in 10 years?
After that Anon who had the Doctor!Theo history teacher!Liam headcanon I honestly can’t see them ending up any other way.
But yes okay so I see Theo as a doctor and Liam as a history teacher. Theo works long ass hours constantly and paid more than he makes to get through all the training and Liam’s on a teacher’s salary so their house isn’t the best. Or the cleanest a lot of the time.
They adopted a six-year-old who came into the hospital after saying with abusive foster parents. Theo didn’t even mean to start talking to her but she’d been stuck in the hospital for a while with repeat surgeries and then Liam and Dr Geyer start talking to her and after the latest big bad tears up the hospital and Liam and Theo find themselves running for her room the second the second it starts to make sure she gets out safely they decide they might as well see if they could.
They’re still fighting supernatural beasties but doing fairly well at adulting alongside it. Theo thinks if they could afford a maid their lives would be perfect. Liam thinks if his students could start listening to him it would be better.
4) who cooks and who bakes?
Both of them cook, neither of them bake. They’re both…adequate at cooking, sure it’s not great but they won’t starve. It’ just they don’t have the patience to stick to the recipe’s or the care to remember to check stuff in exactly the cooking time. Baking, however, neither of them touch it. Liam made cupcakes once and Theo almost broke a tooth on them.
5) Any Au idea’s for them?
College AU! Right okay, so you have Theo the smart as fuck stoner and Liam the angry history nerd who ends up sharing a dorm with him.
They hate eachother at first. Theo is loud and obnoxious and seems to pass without trying and Liam is there busting his balls trying to keep up in his classes and play lacrosse and hang out with Mason.
Liam has a breakdown one night, no tears or anything but he just starts whispering history facts and rocking back and forth and after some laughing Theo convinces him to smoke a bit to calm down.
They end up at the nearby skate park Liam ranting angrily about his teachers while Theo skates around him. After that, they’re pretty amicable, if amicable means they fall in love while Theo tries to teach Liam how to skate and Liam bombards Theo with the history of marijuana.
6) What would their first vacation be like?,
Airplanes is what I’d imagine it to be like ;)
It’s miserable. They go to England, London to be exact. Jackson and Theo hit it off after the hunter fiasco, they’re both sarcastic egotistical competitive assholes and bond somewhat and then continue it with a string of insulting text messages. Eventually, it turns into a “if you’re ever in London come hang out.” sort of invitation.
It rains the entire time and Liam bitches about it. Theo bitches about the smell and the noise. Jackson bitches about them bitching and Ethan bitches about how it wouldn’t be so bad if they’d actually go out and do something which starts Liam off on the rain again. They agree to try a nice tropical beach next time.
Tiffanie Mang is one of the 125 painting animators who worked on Loving Vincent. She travelled to our Studio in Gdansk, Poland all the way from America to work on the project and shares her experience of working on the film below. Look out for your chance to ask Tiffanie your own questions soon, at one of our special LA events!
Tiffanie Mang inside her Loving Vincent PAWS
I applied to Loving Vincent in early 2016 after a couple friends saw an advert looking for painters and urged me to apply. I remember thinking how amazing the project looked and how cool it would be to be accepted as an artist. Of course I didn’t actually think it would happen…
I didn’t hear back for about two months, and when I did, I almost forgot what I had applied for! After Skyping with the production coordinator, they asked if I could fly to Poland to do a three day test. That would mean quitting my current job, giving up the plein air painting class I was about to teach, and possibly moving away from LA for the rest of the year. I was almost not going to go because the risk was so big - there was no guarantee I would make it on to production because I had to pass the test first.
I hastily booked a ticket and flew out to Gdansk, Poland. After a weekend of exploring the beautiful town by the Baltic Sea, I arrived at Breakthru Films’ studio to take the test. I had no idea what I was getting myself into; I majored in Animation, and this was definitely the hardest animation test I had ever done. I had never done paint on glass animation before, let alone paint on canvas in oils. It was a real challenge, and I truly didn’t think I was going to pass. When I found out I had crossed the preliminary line, I was the happiest person ever. It was such a surreal moment. I then went through two weeks of training before officially starting production and embarking on the crazy journey of working on this beautiful film alongside many other extremely talented painters, who I am so honored to have met. I would not have traded this job for anything else, for it truly was a life-changing experience. The film itself and the people I worked with made it worth every penny, risk, and sacrifice.
A few Loving Vincent Painting Animators outside our Gdansk studio with Douglas Booth
I worked on the film for about 5 months. I did a total of 6 shots and animated Dr. Gachet, Marguerite Gachet, Armand Roulin and Louise Chevalier. I am thankful I got to work on a variety of shots, from closeups, to wide shots, to walk cycles. It was a new experience and challenge each time, from mixing new colours to getting the right brush strokes. I also got to work with the director on creating two original key frames for a couple shots, which was really fun to do because I had to take immediate reference from Van Gogh’s work and other design paintings done by talented senior painters in order to paint the first frame.
I really enjoyed working on the shot where Dr. Gachet and Armand Roulin are chatting in his garden, and Louise Chevalier walks in briefly. I got to paint some awesome camera blur of Louise walking towards the camera and off screen. The biggest challenge was animating Dr. Gachet talking, whose head was the size of a penny. I also really enjoyed animating an extreme close up shot of Armand’s face towards the end of the film when he is contemplating everything he has heard and learned about Vincent Van Gogh. I thought I might get bored painting those subtle movements in his eyes and lips, but I actually had a lot of fun capturing the important nuances to convey the conflicted emotion! It was my last shot for the film, so that definitely added to the bittersweetness.
Louise, Armand and Dr Gachet in the garden
Working on this film made me admire Vincent so much more as a painter, restless fighter, and poet of strokes and colour. I read a book about him to prepare for the animation test, and I remember resonating so much with his pain of being a struggling artist and finding his true voice, even when it meant going against society’s norms.
“Always continue loving nature, for that’s the real way to learn to understand art better and better.”
Vincent van Gogh, 1874
Since I love painting landscapes and I do find true, endless inspiration in the natural beauty that surrounds us, this Vincent quote always makes me smile.
I currently work at BartKresa Studio (a 3-D projection mapping studio) as a concept artist and designer. One of our latest projects was creating the stunning visuals that were used for the Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Party, where I got to meet Jerome Flynn in flesh after painting him as Dr Gachet for so many months!! I also teach classes for plein air painting, one of my lifelong passions. My never- ending profession, however, is to continue to search for and sculpt my independent voice as a true artist, which as Van Gogh stated, will be the most painstaking but rewarding path of all.
Oh my gosh I am running late!!!! So, so far this has not been your day. You had been late to you zero period, and got yelled at for carving something wrong on your ceramics project. Good lord!!! Couldn’t you catch a break. You stuck your earbuds in and pressed play on your High School Musical Radio station on pandora. You got to work on your project. You had drawn this nice floral design in your sketchbook. Writing and drawing was a way that you expressed yourself. You continued working on your sculptured tile. Stick to the Status Quo came on. You had never really liked it, you liked all the other songs but just not that one…why cuz’ it’s telling people to stick to one thing. You have never really liked the barriers put on people. You were always looking for different outlets to express yourself but sometimes were too shy to actually go for it. You were usually out going but when you had the opportunity to do something you freeze…something you wished you didn’t do.
The next hour passed by and it was the end of the ceramics class. You were stuck next to these girls that wouldn’t stop talking about their gymnastics like they were the coolest cats in town. (teen beach movie reference…hahaha get it no? Moving on) You met your best friend Alexia at her locker so you could go to the computer center and work on some homework. You met and our conversation started. She was the one person who you felt like you could talk to without being judged and be painfully sarcastic and she would still love you for the crazy kid you were. We had met during soccer… it was the funnest you have ever had!!
“Hey are you going to soccer practice later” you asked.
“Nah got cross country” “EWW!!”
“Your so funny (Y/n).””Thank you I pride myself…hahaha.”
Our playful banter lasting a bit while we did our work. But soon after the bell rung and you went to class. You were working on some lab in chemistry with your new found junior friends. You were smart enough to keep up with their math and stuff, as a sophomore. You had silently prided yourself in the fact that they trusted you with their thoughts and such. They were good people who got caught in the wrong crowd sometimes. They would occasionally ask you for help on some stuff in math but you usually sat there and quietly listened as they shared their thoughts and feelings on everything.
Your week passed by slowly like this with playful banter with your best bud, and your in depth conversations with others. You waited for Saturday to approach. You were able to go to Downtown with your friends Alexia, America, and Kimberly.
You’ve have been waiting for your girls night out on the town. Your mom doesn’t like when you go out and do things by yourselves there there always is and adult present, which you didn’t really mind, because you aren’t going to do anything bad. We liked to admire different styles and art and expressions. We were kinda like the hippies of campus but 500xs cooler. You had taken your wallet and your mom dropped you off to meet Alexia at America’s house, and Kimberly’s mom was going to drive you guys.
You were talking pictures to make my aesthetic collages for your photography account. You went and enjoyed ourselves. It was one of those stress free days that you wished would never end. Everything was going great until he showed up. You were just sitting there minding your own business until this group of really attractive guys showed up.
“Excuse me miss are you using that seat?” one of the guys with nice dark brown hair asked. He had a british accent. “Umm…(Y/n)” “Oh no we are not go ahead and take it.” you said with a smile. “Thanks” said the other one with gorgeous light brown hair flashing me a killer smile.
“Why do you always leave me to do the talking?” “Come on (Y/n) you are the more outgoing one of us” “Yeah and look at you…you’ve got an admirer” ”No I don’t”
Sure enough when you look over at their table you see the one with the nice smile and freckles looking at you and smile. There was no way of you denying, he was good looking. But the sad fact was that you would probably only see him today and never again. Little did you know that was our first encounter with the boy.
Later while you were walking by the train station you see a rush of girls waving spider man merch so you can’t help but evade the area. In your little walk around the group of screaming girls you happen to run into someone. ”Oh my holy cheese-its I am so sorry” you start but were cut off by new yet familiar voice. “It’s perfectly fine love, aren’t you the pretty dane from the cafe earlier” ”Umm…hi” good lord my awkwardness is showing….. “Love you are fine your are not as awkward as me believe me…I’m Sam” he said with a smile.
You spoke your thoughts oh lord cheese-it protect you
“(Y/n)” “Nice to meet you” and as he said that his voice seemed to double in volume. “And this is Harry…my twin” he said with a sigh. “That’s cool…I kind of have a twin everyone says that my friend Alexia look alike but we are not.”
He chuckled my goodness he is cute. “Hey would you mind taking a picture of us?” some random girl came up and asked “Umm sure…” you took the picture and she said a quick thank you and left. You struck up a small conversation with them and they said they were visiting the states for a few weeks and this was their night out on the town. They talked about how they were visiting their brother who was out here working. Sam mentioned going back to finish school in 3 weeks which is a bummer because he was so sweet. Harry said he was into photography and film and that he writes. They were some talented boys and they were so nice. After about 15 minutes the girls all came back to see you talking to the boys.
“(Y/n) we have been looking for you, we saw Tom Holland and he so nice we got a few pictures with him”
Harry and Sam suddenly went a little pale. They were referring to their older brother…they kinda avoided talking about him because girls would try to use them to get with their big brother.
“Oh well I am sure he was but I was with these guys and we were just chillin’. I think I had some more fun talking to them rather than mobbing the poor guy, he has a life too. I am pretty sure that he wanted a little bit of space to enjoy life like we do. I would have just let him be either way.” All eyes were on you after that statement. Sam and Harry had their signature smirk on. The girls looked down slightly ashamed but still happy they got to meet a celebrity.
“Hey (y/n), Alexia, America, my mom is going to pick us up by the coffee shop she finished her errands.”
“Well I guess we got to go…I hope you have fun visiting the states boys, don’t forget to check out those shops I recommended.” you said.
“Oh love I will for sure… let us at least walk you to the café.” You guys chatted it for a bit taking you time walking. As you approached where you would say goodbye Sam pulled you aside and said ”Today was fun I hope I will see you again, though the chances of that happening is very unlikely I hope you had fun today because I know I certainly did” and then he started walking away but not without leaving a lingering kiss on your cheek.
Oh man lord cheese-it protect you because this wouldn’t the last time you saw this mesmerizing boy.
My eyes fluttered open at the feeling of the warm sun resting on my face. I look around my white themed room squinting. It’s time like these I wish I had blackout curtains or that I went with a darker color for my room. I stretch my arms, causing my sheets to move around me.
I roll over and get out of bed. I shuffle over to my connected bathroom and use the bathroom. I look in the mirror and see my hair is an absolute mess. oh well. I brush my teeth quickly and wash my face. I walk back into my room and throw on a large t-shirt that most likely belonged to my older brother.
I have 4 brothers and I’m the only girl. My youngest brother is 12-year-old Patrick but we call him Paddy or Pads. Then there’s the twins, Harry and Sam (absolute trouble those 2 are), they’re 18. Next, there’s me, 19-year-old Y/N. Lastly is 21-year- old Tom.
I grab my phone and walk downstairs. I see Harry and Sam on the couch fighting over the TV clicker.
“Hello, evil twins. Where’s Pads?” I say snatching the clicker and putting on Cartoon Network.
“He’s in the kitchen with Tom and Harrison,” Harry says now interested in the Teen Titans.
Harrison is Toms best-friend. They’ve been friends for as long as I can remember. I always got to be included in their games whenever they needed a princess to save or just an extra player, so I got to be close with them. It was only natural me and Haz caught feelings for each other. It started in junior high when I cried because a boy had stood me up on a date as a joke. Harrison comforted me on the couch while I cried. He admitted that he liked me, and we just kind of took it really slow.
We started officially dating about a year ago but nobody knew. Tom would be fairly upset if he found out his baby sister and his best-friend were together. He always told us about how wrong it is and that he would kill Harrison if he ever looked at me.
“Sounds like a disaster,” I say more to myself. My parents left for some “couple get away” and left us children by ourselves. Tom was in charge and so he had to stay with us at home instead of at his and Harrison’s apartment and that was just a bad decision on my parents part because Tom is a complete idiot. Don’t get me wrong I love him, but when he and Harrison are together, it’s complete anarchy.
I walk into the kitchen to find Harrison at the table on his phone while Tom and Paddy are trying to cook breakfast.
“I’ve been cooking eggs and waffles since before you were born Pads, I’m pretty sure I’m right,” Tom says while scrambling the eggs.
“Mum makes them different Tom, I’m telling you, you put the cheese in with the milk.” Pads says frustrated.
“No! It goes in once the eggs are in the pan” Tom retaliates.
“Who put you two in charge of breakfast for the family?” I say walking to the fridge for a glass of juice.
“Goodmorning Y/n, now tell Tom he’s wrong. He thinks you put the cheese in once the eggs go in the pan but I say it goes in before that and with the milk.” Pads says stepping down from the step stool he has so he can help.“Well, it depends, but usually, you’re supposed to put the cheese in with the milk” I say smirking as I take a sip of my juice. Tom groans and puts the cheese in.
“Don’t worry Tommy, you’ll be smarter than a 12-year-old one day,” I say patting his back and kiss Pads on the head. I walk over the kitchen table where Haz is.
“Goodmorning Harrison, is there a reason you’re in my house on a Sunday morning? Doesn’t your mother make you clean your room on Sundays?” I say teasing him.“Haha, very funny y/n. I decided to help Tom keep the Holland Herd in check”
“the Holland Herd? You’re such a loser” I say laughing.
“If I’m a loser than you’re a loser,” He says smirking at me.
“No, do not compare me to you, we have no connections to each other, nothing alike, not even close,” I say crossing my arms.
“I beg to differ,” He says quietly, taking a sip of my drink.
“I’m just saying, a few nights ago we seemed to be reaaaalllyyy connected,” He says leaning into me so he can speak quietly. My face heats up at the thought of what happened a few nights ago.
“HEY! You both are way too close to each other. Back it up!” Tom says looking over his shoulder as he finishes with the waffles.
I roll my eyes as Harrison scoots his chair over.
“Jesus Tom, they’re friends, no need to go all ‘leave room for Jesus’ on them,” Sam says walking into the kitchen and sitting across from me.
“thank you, Sam! at least someone gets it” I say beginning to pout.
“Oh stop pouting, you’ll get wrinkles,” Tom says bringing over plates of waffles and eggs for everyone.
“HARRY FOOD!” I yell into the living room. He rushes into his seat at the table before digging in
.We all laugh and have a nice breakfast before it’s time for our daily activities.
“Alright let’s get to it. Pads has football practice from 12-2 while Harry has a film meeting at 12:30-1:30 and then at 1:45 Sam has an audition and I have dance class from 3-5, then Pads has lacrosse from 4-6, Y/N what do you have again?” Tom says rushing through the schedule in his head.
“Gymnastics from 5:30-7:15 and then Ballet from 8-9. I’m free afternoon so I can take Pads to lacrosse, you take him to football, Harrison picks him up while I take Sam and Harry. Harrison can pick up Harry. Then you pick Pads up from lacrosse and I’ll be home at 9:15 for dinner.” I say as we all three go to our cars.
Everyone splits up and we head off to our busy day. It’s always like this in our family. We’re all a bunch of hard-working overachievers.
I drop off Harry and then drive the hour to Sams audition and wait for him to finish. Once he’s done, I drop him off at home and head over to Tom and Harrison’s apartment to grab Pads. I drop him off at lacrosse and then head back to the apartment.
“tired already?” Harrison jokes as I plop on the couch.
“No, but listening to Sam talk all the time about girls gets quite annoying,” I say moving so he has room to sit.
“We only have an hour and a half but really less than that because you still have to change and get ready,” Harrison says pouting as he moves to lay between my legs with his head on my chest.
“I know baby but we’ll get some free time this week. I only have classes on Wednesday and Friday.” I reply kissing his head.
“whatever shall we do to pass the time,” Harrison says smirking as he slowly crawls his way up my body.
“I’m sure you’ll come up with something Haz, but make it quick,” I say teasingly.
He crashes his lips into mine and cups my face with one hand. His kisses move from my lips to my neck and jaw.
“You’re so damn beautiful, god really sent me my own personal angel” He mumbles nibbling on parts of my neck.
“fuck Haz, that feels good,” I say pulling on his shirt.
“I’ll take mine off if you take yours off?” He says jokingly.
“Such a child Osterfield,” I say sitting up and peeling off my t-shirt. He quickly takes his off and dips back down to kiss me.
“WHAT THE HELL”
We both jump 10 feet away from each other at the sound of my brothers’ voice.
“SHUT IT Y/N. Are you out of your mind? Making out with Harrison? In my apartment!” Tom says as I quickly fumble trying to put my shirt back on.
“I TOLD YOU TO STAY AWAY FROM HERE YOU ASSHOLE!” He says charging Harrison.
“TOM STOP! You’re overreacting” I say pushing him away from Haz.
“Yea bro, calm down,” Haz says from behind me.
“Don’t call me bro. If I was your bro you wouldn’t be trying to sleep with my sister you prick.” Tom spits.
“Thomas stop. it’s not-“
“go home! now!” Tom snaps at me.“No! you’re not my dad. I can see whoever I want. So what I’m dating your best friend. You should be happy.” I say crossing my arms.
“He’s not my best friend anymore. I can’t believe you! And you guys are dating? for how long?”
“about a year mate, we love each other” Harrison says grabbing my hand.
“Oh fuck off. I told you both no, so why would you do it?” Tom says throwing a vase at the wall.
“We’re in love,” I say quietly.
“You know what fine. I’ll move out and find my own place. You both stay here and continue to see each other. When you get knocked up or something else goes wrong don’t you dare come to me Y/n, when he leaves you for someone else i’m gonna look you straight in the eye and say i told ya so.” Tom says grabbing his bag and Tessa and stomping out.
“What do we do now?” I ask sitting on the couch.
“He’ll see that he’s overreacting. For right now I suppose he’s right, do you wanna move in?”
“Harrison, I don’t know. I’d still have to talk to my parents and I don’t like when Toms upset” I say tears pricking my eyes.
“Hey hey hey, we can figure it out. For now, you go kick ass in gymnastics and ballet. Then you can come back here and stay for a while.” Harrison says walking me to the front door.
*2 Years Later*
“Harrison, hurry up we’re going to be late!” I yell up the stairs of our apartment. I and Harrison had to be at the premiere of Sams and Harry’s new movie.“I’m coming Jesus, love. You can’t rush perfection” He says walking down the steps with a smirk.
“Oh please. Just get in the car,” I say grabbing my purse. Harrison grabs my hand which causes me to stop walking. He pulls me back and into his arms.
“You look beautiful darling. I love you” He says sweetly kissing my lips.
“I love you too Haz but I don’t want to be late,” I say pouting as he moves hair out of my face.
“Alright then, let’s go,” He says walking me to our car.
We greet my parents and brothers once we arrive.
“Toms by the food table. You should talk to him” Harry whispers to me as I hug him.
I walk over and see Tom grabbing lots of random deserts.
“Tommy?” I say quietly not wanting to scare him.
He doesn’t say anything but he turns around hugs me tight.
“I’m sorry y/n/n. I was stupid. I-I didn’t think that you and Harrison were actually going to last and I didn’t want either of you getting hurt.” He says almost crying.
“It’s alright Tom. We still love you. I fact, Haz doesn’t know yet but I was wondering if you wanted to be the godfather?” I say tears welling in my eyes.
“Godfather? To-to what?” He says wiping his eyes as he steps back from me.
“My-our baby,” I say smiling and rubbing my stomach that’s not even showing yet.
“You and Haz are having a baby?! IM GONNA BE AN UNCLE? I LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH” Tom yells gathering the attention of everyone at the party.
“TOM! Today was supposed to be about the twins!” I say my eyes widening as everyone rushes over to me. Harrison pushes through everyone and looks at me. He grabs my upper arms and looks down at my stomach.
“My baby is in there?” He says with wide eyes.
“Yea Haz, our baby is in there. I was gonna wait till later to tell you but we all know Tom can’t keep secrets to save his life” I say sniffling.
Mum and Dad all gather us into a group hug. Mum is blubbering about being a grandma and dad is crying cause his only princess is going to be a mum.
“Well I feel it’s only fair you name it after us, seeing as this is our day,” Sam says smirking at me.
“Oh god no. My child is already going to be around you both, I’m not cursing it with your names forever.” I laugh ruffling his hair.
*9 Months Later*
“HARRISON I SWEAR IM NEVER HAVING YOUR CHILDREN AGAIN,” I say as a wave of contractions hit me.
“Nurse? Can we get some pain medicine or something for her?” Harrison’s says worried as he pushes the hair from my forehead.
“Miss? It’s time to start pushing” A doctor says to me.
After what felt like forever of pushing, I hear a scream.
“Here’s your beautiful son. Congrats you both!” The nurse says handing me a child in a blue blanket. He hasn’t been cleaned off yet but he still looks beautiful. I began crying and so does Harrison.
“Should we bring in the family to meet him?” I say as Harrison climbs into the small bed with me.
All the holland’s walk in looking eager.“Mum, Dad, meet your grandson, Stanley Dominic Osterfield.” I pass the baby to my mother and look at Tom.
“You named him..after me?” Tom says with tears streaming down his face as he looks at the adorable sleeping baby.
“Well, I wanted to name him after the most important men in my life, and he’s already got Hazs lasts name so I went with you and dads name,” I say as Tom brings me into a tight hug.
“Thank you! I love you 3 so much” He says into my shoulder.
“Alright then mate, quit the waterworks, you wanna hold your nephew?” Harrison says grinning at his best friend. Tom hugs him tightly before opening his arms to hold the baby.
“Next one gets named after me,” Paddy says sitting at the end of my bed. I laugh at him and lightly kick him.
“If you have twins name them after us!” Harry says grinning.
“I am NOT having that many kids, I don’t know how mum and dad did it,” I say laughing before realizing how tired I am.
“Goodnight love,” Haz says kissing me before I fully fall asleep to the sound of my family talking about who my son looks like.
Summary: This started as a 4+1 setup on Lin asking you to marry him. It devolved into a study of a year plus some in a relationship, and how you can be so close to the end and yet so far in the blink of an eye.

Warnings: Badly translated Spanish, a swear, maybe.
Notes: I do not speak Spanish, nor have I ever been on Broadway, nor am I a traditionally published author. I put a lot of research into this stuff to make it seem as realistic as possible, but if you can tell me how to fix a situation or change a translation to make it better, please let me know, I’m happy to listen.
I took a lot of inspiration from random things, but I want to point out some of my sources because they are important.
The Hamiltome gave me most of the original cast/crew names and timelines for when things happened (transfer to Broadway, opening night, etc.) I also heavily relied on the timeline on the Hamilton Wiki page.
One of the recurring quotes throughout this work comes from Peter Pan. Kudos if you know it.
Random House and Anderson Press are real. Their websites are very helpful.
Spanish translations are courtesy of Reverso Contexto. Better than Google, but I’m sure, not infallible. Let me know if I’m way off the mark.
Title comes from the Jon McLaughlin song of the same name. It is the over arcing theme song for this fic. Link
This is the first thing I’ve written in at least 5 years, and it’s the first thing I’ve written for a Broadway fandom in 10+ years. Please be kind.

There are moments in our

not a moment like any other. It was not even a huge moment, that they
show in every teenage movie. It was just a moment. One to change both
of your lives and understanding things you have never understood
