Another AU no one asked for lol!!

I wanted to finish this before Moana came out, BUT I am glad I waited because now I have a story to my AU based off of one of my favorite songs from the movie ( x )

So now this exists! And I took what I knew from my Samoan heritage, and the rest the beautiful islands to make it! I made it very general, so I used a few different Islands and languages to do it, so in speaking, this is generally polynesian, but more Samoan based, since I am more familiar with that.

Since Komugis name wouldn’t work in the language, I did some research and came across Komaki! So here we have our little blind Island girl, Komaki. 

Meruems name was hard to find a match that sounded close to his original name and held an important meaning.. but I did it!  In this AU he is Chief Mārama! Which is translated from Maori to the word light, which.. meruem apparently means the light that illuminates all or something so.. Yup!! we good!

Cold, Empty Mattresses and Falling Stars

So this was supposed to be my pbb fic before I dropped out bc ~reasons~ but I figured I’d still finish and post it anyway. I’m sorry this has been so long coming; I’ve been working on this on and off since july, I’ve had to weave it in and out of my suddenly hectic schedule consisting of work, a-levels, and more work ever since I’ve started college, I’ve changed and rewritten and altered so many little things it’s nearly driven me crazy over the course of those months so now I’m just so glad I’m finally able to share this with you. It isn’t much, I guess, but I hope it’s enough.

I really took to this prompt. I live in an area that stands in a strange middle ground between rural and urban. I come from a fairly big town in which I’ve lived my whole life, I’m no stranger to traffic and congestion and crowds and buildings, and London; the capital, the biggest, brightest, most densely populated city in England sits only about forty-five minutes away from me. Somehow, despite this, where I live I’m also surrounded by miles and miles of desolate countryside with no signal or sight of another person after so little as a ten minute drive out of the town; meaning I’m surrounded by the stars. Which, if you know me, subsequently means I spend a lot of time looking at them. Although they’re both polar opposites, I feel as if I relate to and make up the elements of both Dan and Phil in this fic.

(Also I had a slight obsession with this song over the summer which is why a lot of it is based on it lol)

Thank you to my lovely beta Aqua for being an absolute star with this fic. You’re literally one of the best betas I’ve ever had and I’d literally love to work with you again (pls). Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me with this fic, whether it be picking out my overuse of semi-colons or suggesting different swear words for me to use (I love being an actual sinner!). I love you so so much, and I can’t wait to actually mEET you tomorrow so we can get cheeky Nando’s and go to Waitrose like the tru Sussex ladies we are xxxxx

Thank you to my equally lovely beta readwritewatchrepeat for being so patient with me throughout this; I really really appreciate how supportive you’ve been over these past couple of months what with the dropout and stuff, and I’d love to work with you again in the future <3

Thank you to my (unofficial) artist Abi for this beautiful song. Abi, you’re the most talented person ever and I love and appreciate every single song you’ve ever written for a fic of mine. You’re one of the most incredible, beautiful, kind, caring, and just fucking adorable people I know, inside and out, and I’m still not certain what I did to deserve to have you in my life, but I’m so glad you’re here. Quite a bit of this fic was written with you in mind after the song you wrote (and the dream I had) so I hope you like it. I love you so, so much, and I’ll see you in my dreams (hehe). <3

Ok I’ll shut up now so u can read the fic instead of my emo rambles

Dan and Phil

I just finished watching TATINOF and the Documentary on Youtube Red and it was absolutely amazing. Dan and Phil have worked so hard on all of this for so long and I am extremely proud of them. They deserve all of the success that they currently have and even more. The show was so emotional when I actually, physically went, and watching it now was equally as emotional. I’m glad that they pointed out their insecurities about being a youtuber and addressed it. Phil deserves to know that he is beautiful and amazing just the way he is, he doesn’t need to change.And dan needs to know that he can create his  own destiny no matter what it is, but also being a youtuber has helped so many people and so many people look up to him and Phil. They need to know that what they have done, what they have created has impacted so many people in such a positive way. Their book, show movies, and videos in general are so genuine and amazing. Im so proud of Dan and Phil, and im proud to call them my inspiration.
