i will take screenshots of everything

Sorry to break the news, but you did not report the person behind that blog. Instead, you reported me. And I am still suffering the consequences.

I did not run that blog. Yes, they used my image. All my pictures from Facebook and Instagram, my statuses, even the captions. And then interspersed them with animal abuse images, fantasies about beastiality, other fucking disgusting sentiments.

You people found my Facebook, where I listed my wildlife rescue group. You didn’t think, for a moment, that it was odd that none of these abuse fantasies appeared on Facebook. A girl who was apparently willing to put her face, her location, the names of her family her local fucking vet clinic on her zoophilic Tumblr page, strangely had none of these thoughts on a just-as-public Facebook page.

Not one single person thought, “This is a bit odd, maybe I should reach out to this person just to confirm that it’s them.”

You people, high on some fantastical idea of justice, called the authorities. And I did not even know about the existence of the blog until the RSPCA showed up on my doorstep one night.

THEY, thankfully, had the sense to believe me. As soon as they showed me the page and I broke down in tears, they got the idea. So they told me to go to the police. The police palmed me off to ACORN (a cybercrime body) who dismissed the case because “nobody in the images was under the age of 18.”

Meanwhile, Tumblr had taken the page down, only for it to resurface again last year.

I then pursued a civil case. Emailed lawyers in my local city. They advised me only to take it to Tumblr, who shut down the page a second time. No further action was taken.

I never received another call from wildlife rescue because I was unable to prove that I did not run this disgusting blog. Wildlife is my biggest passion in the world and I may never work in that industry until I can clear my name.

So I messaged this page - report-a-predator. They told me to prove it - fair enough. So I sent them EVERYTHING. The screenshots, my emails to ACORN and SAPOL and Tumblr and the lawyers. They did not respond. I emailed them again, begging them to clear my name. They did not respond.

I am furious. I am fucking enraged that this post even still exists on their page, because the actions of this so-called “justice group” has directly impacted the life of an innocent person and they will do nothing to acknowledge it. Not even respond to a simple email. Not even take down the incriminating post.

I know my blog is tiny, I know nobody follows it, I know this will probably never be seen. But I am not going to be silent.

If you’re ever caught up in a whirlwind of pseudo-justice, maybe check the facts first.

Hansol - ToppDogg ( UPDATE )

Hello K-Pop fam, I’ve come to bring you another announcement.

Hansol had another Instagram live today and he looked so much better. His hair was all fluffy and cute and he smiled a few times. He apologized to the fans for making us worry and that’s he’s doing better.

He also said in E n g l i s h
“Please do not take screenshots and post them.” So if any of you have done that, PLEASE delete them. He was so kind to talk to the fans today, so please respect his wishes.

He told us that he’ll explain everything in a few years, so let us all hope and pray that he heals and things will go better for the group.

Thank you to all the fandoms that helped and supported ToppDogg and their fandom, ToppKlass, during this time. Please continue to show support if you can. Much love to all of you.


K-Family is the best <3

Just A Rack set FIX

Various fixes for my old set  (mainly for pre- and postpatch shadows issues) and eight new pieces of EA clothing made deco (plus a „no shirt” version of Dinner Blazer). I also added “talk to objects” function to clothes (insane sims). Each item (except for the hanger) has at least 2 swatches. New files will overwrite the old ones if you had them in your Mods folder (if you’ve kept the same name).

To place clothes on the rack please activate bb.moveobjects on. Height is already adjusted. The rack is in misc deco and the rest is in clutter, but it’s easier to just search for “flop”.

Credit to @peacemaker-ic for his wood texture I used on the hangers and for helping me out with the ssao problem (tutorial here).

1. Just A Rack and Just a Hanger

From left to right:

2. T-shirt, Long Sleeve T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, Shirt, Casual Jacket, Dinner Jacket No Shirt (new), Dinner Jacket

3. Bikini Top, Cross Straps Top, Halter Top, Bows Top, Denim Jacket, Heart Sweatshirt, Silk Jacket, Hoodie Jacket, Floral Dress, Evening Dress

I forgot to take screenshots of Activist Tee and Bomber Jacket, which are also fixed

4. New items: Windbreaker, Cardigan, Henley Jacket, Checkered Dress, Duffle Coat, Oversized Sweater, Midi Dress, Glam Dress

Gonna watch this movie asap even tho I know they won’t be saying what I’m sure they would be saying if it wasn’t for damn you Arakawa. With love despite everything,

Your friendly neighborhood Aira
(don’t take me seriously I rlly do love herrrrr)

Well, I’m terrible with this things, but I’m always glad to help! So I’ll try my best :> My english is pretty poor so eh, this may be hard to explain.

First of all, I want to point out something: don’t take this as the absolute truth, or the definitive way to draw ducks. Because it’s not. It’s the way I do it; how my eyes see it. And each mind is a world. And, who am I to teach anyone anything? Exaclty: nobody. I don’t have the basics, and if you take what you’ll see here as a definitive way to draw ducks, you’ll be risking to make the same mistakes as me. And, believe me, I make a bunch of mistakes xD So think about them more like tips. These were helpful for me on their moment, and I guess now it’s a bit easier for me to draw the ducks. So I better start.

The beak. Maybe the worst part to draw on a duck. I guess it’s the one that can make or ruin a drawing xD Believe me, I had a really hard time with the beak. I still having it sometimes. But I kinda reccomend you folks to consider drawing the shape first. It helped me so, so much. It may help you too. Before that, I used to draw some kind of arc first. But it was slow and tyring, and used to end looking terrible x3

Old and new eyes works a bit like the same. But the old had more lines for the eyelids and the new doesn’t, I guess? Here are some expressions for eyes that came to my mind. Obviously, there exist a lot more. Combining them with the beak is funny to do.

I don’t have a lot of tips for the body. Is useful for me to separate it in different parts. And I try to push my poses, but they usually end being sticky poses xD And that’s basically what I know; it’s really not so much. Maybe the material explains it better than me. You’re free to use these as references or something :>

Now, for my steps, I don’t have exactly a method. I just makr the sketch, ink, add color, add some poorly made shading with a multiply layer and then a bit of color editing with a screen layer or something like that.

As you can see, it’s not a pretty smart proccess xD

For a last thing, I can tell that tons of observation are really helpful. Take screenshots, make notes; everything you want. Take what you like for each one. But, principally, have fun. The ducks doesn’t have to look exaclty like they are. Change them to make them easier to draw for you. The proportions, colors, whatever you want! Draw them in your style; your own, unic way! :D Add them your own sparkle! It would be great! Just be yourself, and draw. Hope it helped, at least a little :‘3

Valkyon’s date part 1

( They were talking about the scratches Valkyon got from the robe during the race.)

V: Yes, it’s three times nothing. I might have the marks for plenty of days, but it’s nothing. I already have a lot of scars, so now i have an another one.

G: That’s true… how did you get all of them ?

V: It depends on the scars… you prefer the glorious stories or… the embarrassing ones ?

G: Both. I want to know everything !

V: Okay. I had this one while fighting an Ankou.

G: ( He showed me the two scars he had on his stomach.)

V: It planted a double blade sword in my stomach. I had to spend about fifteen days in bed, I lost a lot of blood, but fortunately none of my vital organs were touched.

G: That’s terrifying…

G: And this one ? ( I pointed a scar barely visible inside his neck.) the fun is gonna start here :^)

V: …

G: It’s embarrassing ?

V: A little… but if you really want to know… It’s the least gracious memory from an old conquest.

G: I think that you liked what she did to you ? ( I can’t control the jealousy in my voice.)

V: The act it self wasn’t unpleasant… the mark is indecent for my taste.

G: … I see.

G: And otherwise, you had a lot of conquests ?

V: What do you mean by “a lot” ?

G: In the H.G, have you ever gone out with someone before ?

Valkyon started thinking and i learned that mister was a heartbreaker/ladykiller. Who would’ve thought ?

Meanwhile, i was surprised to know that despite his prize list (?)… he was never able to love any of these women. And to use his terms, “It was not wrong to try”.

V: It’s surely because i didn’t meet the right one.

G: Are you really looking for her ?

( He said no )

anonymous asked:

I'm trying to draw the YOI characters in my style. What's your take on the non-Asian male ice skater's eyeshapes? (Out of the Asian characters, Otabek probably has the narrowest eyes)

That’s an interesting question! Before I figured out the style I prefer to draw in, I tend to try to draw as close to the source material as possible. But if you look at enough references, you’ll be able to deconstruct how certain artists draw certain things! YOI style is distinct enough for me to recognize it. 

What I observed when I started drawing fanart for YOI was how Kubo-sensei drew eyes. So I followed that! 

The main character design however, is by Tadashi Hiramatsu (Hiramatsu-san!) and they follow this collaborative guide on how to draw the characters for the show. That’s how the characters would stay and look the same even though several different people are drawing them for the entire series.

I’ll trace over the eyes and then draw how I draw eyes and then show the basic hexagon shape (red).

For most of them, she goes for distinct half hexagon shapes for eyes. There’s a certain way she does this, and when you notice it you’ll see mostly the same eyes for most characters!

Victor’s are expressive coz because they’re bigger towards one side and slants down towards the ears. But Yuuri’s eyes are much more expressive because they have a rounder shape.

She follows a basic hexagon shape for everyone but it differs per character depending on their personality! For Yurio his eyes slant upward towards the ears (also because he’s always looking down lol) while Leo’s eyes droop downwards. Also take note of the double eyelid!

Chris’s eye shape is like Victor’s but rounder like Yuuri’s. The eyelashes distinguish his eyes from the others. JJ’s eyes are very boxy and it’s very noticeable since everything re: his facial features is big. It’s like a box that’s slanted downwards! And Emil’s is like Yuuri’s but with less eyelid, and rounder towards the middle :D

These two are actually my favorite because the hexagon shape isn’t followed as much but they have the Stereotypical Ikemen Eyes. I couldn’t find a decent screenshot of Michele’s L’Homme Arme program, his eyes were sharper there than Serenade for Two (or when he’s emotional lol) his default eyes are sharp, straight (lol), and masculine. While Georgi’s are the opposite, although they actually share shapes! The bottom of Georgi’s eyes are more of slanted upwards towards the ears, while the top curves downwards (like Victor’s eyes, but not as round). I love his eyelashes too, just saying. I rly love how they drew Georgi especially in Tale of the Sleeping Prince (when he was looking up!!!)

I hope that helped!!!

Does the David Goodsell book in your sidebar have his trippy illustrations? If so, that's jumping to the top of my reading list.

(built-in tag: trypophobia tw /// )

YES IT DOES AND I LOVE IT, unfortunately i left my hard copy at home and had to take screenshots from my uni’s online version:

talking about the flagella of bacterial cells:

THIS IS MY FAVORITE I LOVE:

about this book for those who haven’t read it: this is from the book The Machinery of Life by David S. Goodsell! basically the whole thing is him, a biologist, talking about life at the molecular level in layman’s terms; it’s a pretty short book (under 200 pages) and is totally accessible for anyone who might be interested in molecular biology/biology in general but has never taken a course past the high school level. all the illustrations are photos taken with scanning electron microscopes that were colorized and edited for clarity. i love it because its like, that u fam. u got motors and machines in each of ur cells and they look just like motors and machines that you can see at the macro level. that u

you can get it here on amazon!

“You what!” My friend Mica almost yelled.

I shushed her looking around hoping that she hadn’t drawn too many eyes to us. I only found a few but they didn’t linger before going back to their laptops or lunch. Turning back I was smiling at her outburst but wanting to contain it. I swatted at her telling her to shut up before crossing my legs and stirring my iced drink.

“Oh my god, are you fucking serious?” She continued. “You fucking with me right now. You did not meet Shawn Mendes on the fucking street!”

The Art of Falling In Love (With a Stranger): Part 1

Real life

Pairing: Finn Wolfhard x Reader

Summary: After an amusing mixup, Finn and the reader become close friends despite never meeting the other. Fluff and embarrassment ensue.

Disclaimer: I do not own Finn Wolfhard so I don’t own his political views, etc.

Y/n: your name

Y/f/c: your favorite color

Y/h/c: your hair color


Finn clicked ‘post’ and within seconds, millions of fans had already commented on it. Curious as to what they were saying, Finn scrolled through the comments only to sigh in annoyance when they were all along the same lines: ‘You’re too adorable/hot/precious’ and ‘marry me’. Seriously, if this is what girls are like these days, Finn’s not sure he’s going to ever get married.

Suddenly, his eye catches on an interesting question that doesn’t involve marriage or what he uses for his hair or even the post: ‘What is your opinion on feminism? Similarly, what are your opinions on social injustices?’

Intrigued, Finn clicks on the username of the commenter. Casually scrolling through his posts before bed is one of his favorite hobbies but it would appear he hasn’t been paying enough attention to the ‘little people’, as his agent calls them.

The account, @your-username, is full of videos of you laughing with your friends, puns, and interesting stories. It’s a lot more interesting than looking at the duck-face selfies his fellow celebrities post.

Deciding he has nothing to lose, Finn DM’s you.

Finn: Hey! Your comment was really interesting on my latest post. It had nothing to do with it, but it was interesting. Um… I support feminism, I guess. What do you mean by social injustices?

Almost immediately, you started typing back and Finn braced himself for the electronic squeal he was about to mentally hear. Instead, you type back:

Y/n: Social injustices like the prejudices surrounding certain races, the hate that women have to bear on a regular basis for striving for achievement. Is this, like, a prank or something?

Finn: Why would this be a prank?

Y/n: There’s almost no way the Finn Wolfhard would be responding to my comment.

Finn: Why’d you post it, then? And yes, this is the Finn Wolfhard

Y/n: I mean to post that on another post but clicked yours by accident… there’s a reason it was so random XD sorry to bother you! If you’re answering fan’s comments you must be annoyed to find out I didn’t intend it for you…

Finn frowned. Now he feels stupid. Your next text quickly soothes his bruised ego, though:

Y/n: It’s fine. It’s actually interesting to find out how to answer questions like that! I want to be an actress, you see, and the Stranger Things and It cast are kinda my role models… so young and so successful! You guys are wonderful people and amazing actors!

Finn smiles and types back quickly.

Finn: Np. You’ll have to let me know when you star in your own show, I’ll watch!

Y/n: Sorry about the misunderstanding. Will do! Cya!

Finn types back a farewell and scrolls through your profile a bit more. Every time he answered a fan’s comment they would keep him up until at least 3 in the morning trying to find out everything about him and asking him to date them at least 30 times. He decides this y/n is an interesting character.

For the first time in a long time, Finn goes to bed before 12:00, his mind still wondering about this girl who contradicts everything he knows about girls these days.

Finn almost surprises himself the next morning when he texts you.

Finn: Good morning

You don’t reply and he takes that to mean you’re still sleeping. It takes you another three hours to reply and then you say:

Y/n: Hey, sorry, I was hanging out with my friends. Wassup?

Finn grins.

Finn: Hanging with your friends and playing 2048?

Y/n: Haha, you saw my post. Yeah, you got me! I was too lazy to check who texted me. You didn’t answer my question, though. wassup?

(You just posted a screenshot of the website 2048 with a square that had the numbers 2048 on it highlighted. Finn’s not sure what that exactly means, but your caption ‘Hells yeah!’ indicates that it’s exciting)

Finn: I honestly have nothing to do right now. wbu?

Y/n: I should be doing hw, but who cares about that stuff, right? im writing/reading fanfiction and watching vines bc im basic and a fangirl

Having made up his mind, Finn grins, types out a quick ‘bye’ and follows the girl. Immediately you ask him, why’d you do that?

Finn: What?

Y/n: You just followed me. Is this a joke?

Finn: What?

Y/n: You’re a celeb and I’m a nobody. Why are you following me? Is this some popularity test or something? trick a nobody into thinking you’re actually interested in them before dumping them?

Finn: At least you post interesting stuff. literally all anyone posts these days is those duck face selfies

Y/n: That wasn’t an answer

Finn: What’s your deal? I’m not allowed to follow you?

Y/n: No, but now literally all my friends are going to be so pissed at me

Finn: Why?

Y/n: They’re going to think I did something to get you to follow me without them

Finn: girls are weird

Y/n: tell me about it


Finn: how was ur hoco?

Y/n: it was fine, i guess. They didn’t play any slow songs and I went with a dude but all we did was play chess in the cafeteria and eat

Finn felt weird at the thought of Y/n going to homecoming with another guy and mad that she didn’t even get to dance.

Finn: That stinks. If it makes you feel any better, my hoco was just as sucky

Y/n: XD yea i know.

Finn: Stalker!

Y/n: Noted. And by the way, you’re out of milk.

Finn: Not funny bc i actually am out of milk

Y/n: XD hocos are all sucky

Finn: I bet chess was better than being forced to dance. thats what happened to me

Y/n: Poor thing, people wanting to be with you

Finn: you got asked!

Y/n: Fair enough.

Finn had seen the photo you had posted on your profile. You were wearing a stunning y/f/c dress and your y/h/c hair was curled slightly. You looked like a princess but talked like a rebel.

Finn supposes it’s part of your charm before blushing and hastily focusing on memorizing the lines of the scene he has to shoot tomorrow.


Finn: What are you being for Halloween?

Y/n: the wall of lights from ST. Wbu?

Finn: That’ll be interesting to see. Send me a pic. im being richie from it bc i got to keep the glasses and a hawaiian shirt is easy enough to find

Y/n: Dude so many people in my grade say that it wasn’t scary

Finn: They’re being dicks it was terrifying

Y/n: Thank you!

Finn: Who’d you see it with?

Y/n: the boy who took me to hoco

Y/n: we were both wimps and clutching each other’s hands when we were scared


“Who are you texting?” Caleb inquired, trying to peer over Finn’s shoulder. Finn hastily turned the screen off, which was useless as it buzzed and turned on again within a second as you answered the question he had just asked.

“His secret girlfriend,” Gaten answered.

“She’s not my girlfriend!” Finn protests.

“He hasn’t stopped texting her,” Noah adds, “but he won’t tell us who it is. I think it’s that cute reporter that asked him all those questions.”

“I bet it’s Millie!” Gaten guesses.

Millie looks over from where she’s looking at Sadie’s phone and shakes her head. “He hasn’t responded to any of my texts or Sadie’s. The mystery girl isn’t one of us.”

“I think it’s Sophia,” Sadie says before diving back into her phone.

For a few minutes the entire limo is bomboarding Finn with questions. He ignores them all and just responds to your text.

“Hey, Millie,” Caleb calls. Finn relaxes, glad the attention is off of him, but then Caleb snags his phone out of his hand and presses video chat. Gaten, who’d seen your username, quickly tells everyone what it is and they all immediately search you up.

You answer the chat, much to Finn’s dismay. “Hey,” you say quickly without glancing at the phone. “Give me a sec—shit!” You throw your hands in the air as an orange fluffball jumps onto her keyboard. “Crookshanks, I swear to God—”

You try to lift the cat off but it swipes at your face.

“Asshole! Give me a sec, Finn.” You pick up the floofball and run to grab a Band-Aid. The entire limo can hear you drop the cat onto the ground before it jumps back onto the desk and looks at the camera. For all the cat is a jerk (Finn would know, you’ve faced off against Crookshanks many a time during a video chat) he’s extremely smart as well.

“Aww,” Millie coos.

Crookshanks chirps in response.

“Yeah, sorry, Finn, I was playing—” You shove the cat away and finally glance at the phone. “You’re not Finn.”

“Sorry, Y/n,” Finn calls.

“Oh my God, you’re Caleb McLaughlin!” you exclaim, your eyes widening comically.

“Call him Caleb,” Finn tells you, still off-screen.

You flush a deep red. “Hi?” you offer quietly. “I’m sorry, I don’t know what I’m doing.”

“We just want to know who Finn’s girlfriend is,” Sadie shouts.

If it’s possible, you flush an even deeper red.

“We’re not dating!” Finn yells through muffled hands; he’s hidden his face in them. You do the same on the screen before the view is obstructed by the orange cat’s pelt again.

“Dude, you’re dating the future Miss America!” Gaten exclaims, still scrolling through your posts. “This bitch can sing, dance, and she’s super hot!”

“Sorry, Finn, dinner!” you say loudly before hanging up.

Finn’s face is bright red when he finally takes it out of his hands. “I’m going to kill you.”

“Jaeden, Sophia, Jack, Wyatt, Chosen, and Jackson just started following her!” Sadie announces.

“How the fuck did they hear about this so fast?”

Millie just waves her phone in response.


Y/n: Dude, why are all of your friends following me?

Finn: I’m sorry

Y/n: Now I feel pressure to post funny stuff since famous people are looking at what I’m doing

Finn: You’re already funny, trust me they’ll love your posts

Y/n: thx

Finn: whats ur deal with famous people anyway

Y/n: the paparazzi are always watching u guys

Finn: tell me about it

Finn: so your worried theyll start watching you too?

Y/n: no just that they’ll start looking at what your looking at and laugh and b like ‘oh wow this bitch think she cool’

Y/n: idk its stupid

Finn: no its not

Finn: I cant say anything without it being analyzed 50 times over during interviews

Y/n: plus some celebs think theyre better than normal ppl just bc theyre famous so idk i thought u were like that at first


When Finn hears about Matt and Ross looking for another female actress his age, he’s stunned. Sophia’s busy doing something and he hasn’t really heard of any really big kid-actresses right now (or maybe he’s spent too much time hanging out only with the Stranger Things and It kids).

Anyways, he tells you immediately. Your squeal is loud enough to puncture his eardrums.

“I asked them if they would be willing to hire someone who hasn’t acted in a big movie before,” Finn says, smiling as you clap your hands to your cheeks to hide your grin, “and they said they wouldn’t mind as long as she was good!”

“Do you really think they would hire me?” you ask, your hand still cupped over your mouth.

“You’ll be hired the second they see you,” Finn promises and wonders how he still hasn’t met you in person.

Is it possible to fall in love in a year?

Finn thinks so. He knows it was the right decision to reply to your comment. He still can’t believe how down-to-earth you are, how you struggle with math just like him, how you’re an amazing writer. He’s read some of your fics and even edited a short story you wrote and entered into a contest. You didn’t even place, unfortunately, but Finn’s been encouraging you to publish it for at least a month. The judges were fucking stupid not to give you first place.

How can it be that you two haven’t even met each other in person yet are so close? Finn has no idea how tall you are compared to him, what you smell like, what your hair feels like with his fingers running through it, yet you text each other every single day and while video chatting, seem to communicate without talking. He knows your favorite color, your birthday, what games you like to play, what sports you like, and vice versa.

You’re a nice dose of reality when he’s overwhelmed with the stresses of Hollywood. You’ve talked him to sleep many a time when he’s freaking over a scene he has to shoot and he’s helped you study for tests you have to take. The two of you are orbiting in completely different circles. You’re working for grades, he’s working for money.

And yet Finn’s palms sweat whenever you respond to one of his texts or smile at him from your phone screen. Your laugh makes his world appear in high-definition.

Finn thinks he’s in love.

He thinks you might like him too, based on how many guys you’ve turned down in the past three months (five. You told Millie about them. Surprisingly, the two of you are close as well).

But how could he be, if he’s never even touched you?

(Sometimes, like right now, he really does feel like Mike Wheeler. They both fell in love at a really young age to girls they didn’t really know.)


Y/n: Favorite vacation?

Finn: Hawaii

Y/n: No way, you’ve gone?

Finn: It was awesome

Y/n: Did you snorkel? Did you see turtles? Is the water super clear?

Finn: Yeah, all that and more. The fish weren’t afraid of us; I swam right through a school of them.

Y/n: So. Lucky!

Y/n: Oh, did I tell you I’m sending in a video of myself acting, singing, and dancing to a theater company?

Finn: no way! What play are they putting on? Which theater company is it?

Y/n: Broadway…

Finn: No shit! Dude, you won’t even need the Stranger Things role to get famous!

Y/n: Ikr! Anyways, I gotta go, cya

Is it bad that Finn wants to take you to Hawaii now?


Finn can’t believe it when Matt and Ross say he can go to your interview too, since he was the one who recommended you in the first place. The two of you are so excited to finally meet the other.

Finn’s counting down the days.

Exactly a week from when the two of you are finally, finally going to meet the other, he gets this text:

Y/n: Hey Finn. Um so my grandpa took a bad fall and I’m not really that close to him but we’re all traveling across the country to see him and my grandma. They’re not sure he’s gonna make it because there was some internal bleeding and stuff and his kidneys aren’t doing too hot, but I won’t be able to make it to the interview. I already told Matt and Ross. Just thought you should know.

Finn wants to scream. Why couldn’t your grandpa have waited a week?

Finn: It’s totally okay. I’m glad you’re going to see him. You’ll have to let me know how he’s doing, okay? Do you have another date you could do the interview?

Y/n: Matt and Ross suggested Monday the 22. It works for us, wbu?

Without even looking at his calender, Finn replies yes. Who cares if he’s got something going on?


Finn: What about you, what’s your favorite vaca?

Y/n: I’d have to say Great Wolf Lodge. Have you ever gone?

Finn: I think maybe once or twice when I was younger, idk

Y/n: It’s really great! We go every year for Thanksgiving. it’s pretty much the only time i actually see my parents. the water park is humongous and have you heard of MagiQuest? You can go on quests and they’re kinda lame but its still fun. When I was younger you could make your own remote-control cars and I would race mine up and down the hallways…

You kept explaining to Finn and he was reading but really, he was imagining you saying all that to him not on a screen but actually next to him.

Yeah, he’s in love with you.


“Hey, dude, can I borrow your phone for a sec?” Caleb asks.

“Sure,” Finn answers and tosses it to him.

“Dude, what’s your lock screen?” Caleb snickers. “Oh my God, is it her school schedule?”

Finn flushes as Gaten turns, seemingly summoned by the mere mention of Y/n. “Her schedule is his lock screen?” Gaten clarifies.

Caleb nods, chucking the phone back at Finn.

“Well, I don’t want to call her while she’s in class!” Finn defends. Except for Spanish class, because the teacher’s never there.

“Dude, you are so whipped!” Jack chuckles, appearing out of nowhere.


Y/n: Dude, guess what?

Finn: What?

Y/n: You’re never going to believe this but…

Finn: What?

Y/n: Broadway recalled me!

Finn: No fucking way! I’m so happy for you!

Y/n: And also… 4 more days!

Finn: Do you think it’s going to be awkward, seeing each other in real life?

Y/n: Why would it be?

Finn doesn’t have a response for that.


There’s two days left to go when the media starts to attack Finn for ignoring his fan. The truth is that he’d been so exhausted he just couldn’t deal with signing an autograph, taking a picture, and answering 300 questions. He just couldn’t deal with it.

Now he’s just searching up his name on Google and refreshing the page as articles swarm in about how ‘heartless’ and ‘insensitive’ he is.

There’s not one thing about how he’s a kid actor. He’s tired. He deserves a break.

Then his phone chimes. He can tell by the ringtone that it’s you. He fully expects either a ‘Finn, why’d you ignore that fan?’ or a ‘hey, it’s okay, they don’t understand’ but instead it’s a screenshot.

You send another.

And another.

You’re sending him tens of screenshots of tumblr, twitter, and facebook posts defending him. Maybe that’s not a lot in real life but the fact that some people can see it just make Finn want to cry.

So he does. And somehow he calls you and through his tears manages to give his thanks.

“I understand,” you say. Both of you are wishing you could hug him right now. “I wish you didn’t have to deal with this but I understand.”


One day left and the two of you are freaking out. You’re taking a plane to Orange, California, for a meeting with Matt and Ross (from the way Finn speaks so highly of your skills the interview is practically a formality). The Stranger Things kids have been staying in Orange close to the brothers so they’ll be able to start reading through the script the second they’ve finalized it, which will be any day now when they’ve found an actress for the part of an orphan who’s connected to the lab because her dad is Dr. Brenner and she knows where he is. The orphan’s name isn’t decided yet, but that’s the part you’re hoping to get.

You can’t help but wonder what Finn will be like in real life.

“Y/n!” Matt says, extending his hand. You shake it, smiling nervously, and then shake Ross’ hand.

“Hello!” you say brightly. “Thank you so much for letting me audition for this part.”

“It’s no trouble, really. From the way Finn speaks of you, we know you have real talent. Now, we’re just going to give you a few characters and a scenario and we’ll have you act out how you think they’ll react, all right?”

“Sure,” you agree.

“All right.”

You’re just finishing up with the audition when the door bangs open. “Sorry I’m late, the traffic was terrible—”

You whirl around.

“Finn!” Ross says happily.
