anonymous asked:

I'm kinda new to shawns music and I was wondering if you would mind explaining who all the other people mentioned in fanfics are? (Geoff, Josiah, Andrew, Brian, etc.) thank you!

Heya welcome! So here’s a list

Brian, Matt & Ian: His best bros since childhood. Brian is THE bff tho.
Geoff: Guitar tech/Ian’s bro and pretty much a big bro when you think about it
Andrew: his manager
Zubin: guitarist/music director
Mike: drummer
Josiah: photographer
Tom: production manager

I might be forgetting some folks but these are the people he’s around almost on the daily that you might see in fic besides his family.

“Yeah well just text me when you want us to come over?” I said as I pulled out my notebook.

We were sitting in the second row out of my choosing and because I had shown up early to get a good seat. I liked the third row because you were close enough for the prof to know your face but not too close for him to ask you questions.

“Excuse me?” I heard a voice coming from next to Shawn. I glanced over and saw the girl in the row up from us leaning over the seats, her long hair falling near Shawn and she pushed it back behind one ear. “I wasn’t here last class, do you think I could get a picture of your notes?”

My eyes narrowed automatically. First, most of the power points were online, you could sufficiently catch up by just reading them alone and supplementing with the textbook, second why didn’t she ask the people next to her and third, why was her smile so fucking big?

“Oh yeah for sure, but my writing is terrible? Maybe you might want to ask someone else?”  Shawn answered
