More Greaser AU! Sorry it’s not the main four. I got lazy with Firkle at the end so forgive me for not giving him decent clothing.. @v@“ (Also I just scribbled on some tattoos haha it looks very bad I know whatever) Basically Firkle has the most tattoos (full arms, almost full chest, up to neck) and piercings (tongue, nose, lots on the ears, etc). Pete has some on one forearm (maybe a snake) and no piercings besides his stretched ear. I imagine he has a very low pain tolerance while Firkle’s is almost non-existent. Also his hair is shaved at the sides. Henrietta has a big tattoo on her back and one on her lower cleavage/above her breast (still thinking about the image but I always end up with roses and skulls). Also some nose piercings because they’re hella rad. Michael has no tattoos mainly because even when he flipped hours through magazines, he never found a motive he was fully content with (whenever the others would tease him about his picky behaviour he’d simply respond with "you wouldn’t put a sticker on a Chevrolet, would you?”). He does have some piercings in non visible places though.
I’ll most likely redo Firkle at some point, at least hist clothes
Tbh gran,grel would be the like
Super supportive kind of dad
What im saying is
Bet your ass that when morgan and sully do the thang he is going to appear on morgans room carrying a “congratulations on the sex” cake
I did my first follow forever last year sometime around Christmas so I decided to do it again *audience clapping in the background*
So I wanna dedicate this to my friends/squad/mutuals and thank you all for making my dash awesome💛
(Also: my photoshop skills did not improve since last year so idk I tried)
okay so i’m simply going to focus how awesome the members of the mandaluyong congress were and how fatherly tatay/tito/ninong/papa (bear) john arcilla was.
i was excited for the dinner. more so because i’d get to meet fandom people and of course, the very john arcilla himself whom i only got to talk to in the facebook group chat. but really, i was more excited not because i’m going to have dinner with a celebrity, but because here was a man i want to interact with personally like a daughter is to a father. my expectations were met. even more, i got the chance to sit right in front of him. i was just making sure i sat next to lui - the person i’m most familiar with because i got to be with her a couple of times before - but papa john was right there too.
he talked animatedly. non stop. we spent what, two or three (or actually four?) hours in megamall’s kkk just conversing like your usual “makulit” family. we quite sequestered the restaurant. we went from heneral luna, the antonio luna himself, papa john’s opinions on current events, history from the colonial period to the present, the flaws of our government, politicians, the educational system, his personal encounters (he fanboyed over cate blanchett!), everything patriotism under the sun, the oscars, and his plans in restoring the supposed luna house in binondo. he truly wanted that house saved. and we, the lunaticos (all of us, not just the members present in dinner) to initiate the project. he said he wanted it to be a shrine of some sort, a museum, a rightful historical place that is protected and given honor, a headquarters for the lunaticos to hold events or just hang out (see? he was amazing!). but even if we won’t get to restore the house (hopefully we do), he still wants an actual place as headquarters (like the katipunan!).
there were plans too on how to celebrate the movie’s anniversary and antonio luna’s 150th birthday. look what’s in store for this fandom, this family, at 2016!
we all got to talk to him as his children and baby bears. i still am overwhelmed at the fact that he sat in front of me, listened to the things i asked and said, and was the total humble man he is. and for that, he got a star from manang det (and a bear too). i got to contain my feelings, thank god. i don’t really know. he was comfortable to be around with. again, just like a father. he’s someone you could talk to everyday, every hour, and not get tired of his wisdom and wit. we laughed over jokes mostly by the historiko people, and he willingly did fanservice like greet team bahay, someone who’s celebrating a birthday (over the phone), and chat with yeshua (aly) over the phone as well. he entertained, was overall kind, to the staff of kkk and the customers who approached him. he sang les mis, made a wish over a blueberry cheescake, and dressed up as heneral.
i will never forget these though. on a personal view. from the minutest details like my passing sauce and other food to him, encouraging him to try this dish, and the way he attentively listened to everybody’s opinions. i was the youngest in the group, the bunso, the ej, the beata. and i thank god so much for the familial love that night.
most especially, i will forever remember the greetings at the start where he asked everybody’s names or enumerated the ones he already know, and hugged us one by one. when it came to me, i introduced myself as selya. i don’t know if he remembered from the group chat or something, but i didn’t expect that he’d exclaim (as we shook hands):
“oh selya! selya ng aking buhay!”
and then we hugged. it was an awww moment and ohgod i was so happy he called me that (basically owned me haha). right then and there he was the francisco balagtas of my life.
by the end of dinner, after all the fanservices papa john got caught up with, we escorted him until he safely arrived at the parking lot without the commotion. so imagine us walking as kawals, bodyguards around him, in megamall at 9:30pm. the new squad goals. once we bid our goodbyes (to him and to the fandom people), there was another round of hugs and one last group hug before he left.
it was amazing. the night was amazing. i felt joy, love, the utmost positivity all in that experience. and to think that there will be more (the plans and whatnot), that’s just a one big blessing from above (thank you for providing yeshua!).
so here i am. here we are. all the way from september. 2016, we got you.
p.s. NAUBOS YUNG PAKWAN NA DINALA KO ODK. (and nagustuhan ni tatay huhu)
