Three years ago today, this glorious thing happened:

And in honor of that; let’s have SOME FIC.


But first, a history of samflam anniversary fic:

And finally, the anniversary fic for 2017: peace

The rain pattered softly against the metal roof of the bus shelter, the sound muted and ethereal.

heyyyyy taylorswift today i finished my poster for Gillette night uno! i’ve been to both rain shows and those nights have been the best of my life. as much as i HATE the rain, i had the time of my life singing my heart out to my favorite songs those nights! i thought my sign had to honor my love for the gillettestadium rain shows! (lowkey hoping for another rain show)! as for my outfit, i wanted it to reflect my love for SHAKE IT OFF!! (p.s its not even finished yet…more sparkles coming soon)! every single one of your songs holds a fond memory to me. however, shake it off will always hold a special place in my heart. shake it off encourages me to be a little more bolder and braver. to shake off any negativity i receive not only from others, but from myself. to be comfortable in my skin, to love very silly little thing about myself. to always dance like i would in the shower. to shake off anything that doesn’t benefit my well-being. to have the time of my life whenever i can. whenever shake it off comes off, i’ve never felt happier. for that, i owe you my love and supportt, forever! plus my mom and i ALWAYS dance to shake it off no matter where we are, as shown here —–https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=d68hAUMP2PM

 thank you, thank you, thank you, taylor! i can’t wait to shake it off with you at gillette night 1 sec 109!

Genesis--a Birthday fic for the lovely and talented RDH

Alright, this is for raining-down-hearts because today is her birthday and she wanted pre-canon SoMa, so pre-canon SoMa it is.  

Soul is a bit of a whiny fuck, but then, Soul is always a bit of a whiny fuck.  Fair warning.

Happy birthday, RDH!  This isn’t nearly good enough to honor your awesomeness, but I did what I could.  Precanon is a bitch to write, what can I say?

Special thanks to rebornfromash for reading through this mess and, as usual, making it suck less.

If their partnership was anything so far, and it was many things, confusing was at the top of the list.  

When he had first arrived at the DWMA, first shown up to a classroom full of new weapons and meisters on the first day, he was surprised to hear that they would need to find a partner, that they should start looking now by getting to know the people in the room. Soul had known, in a sort of distant way, that he would eventually have to find a meister, a person to wield him, but he’d figured they’d assign him someone down the road.  He certainly didn’t plan on having to mingle just yet, to be forced to look for someone to wield him so soon.

The very idea of someone holding him and swinging him around was odd and unpleasant.  Hell, he hadn’t even figured out how to take his full weapon form yet–how on earth did they expect him to be used by a meister?  

He wasn’t ready for this.  He had just gotten here, to this strange school in this to strange city, bought all new clothes to go with his new life, clothes his parents never would have approved of with their bold colors and casual style, was still living out of a suitcase in a hotel room.  How could he be expected to find someone so important so soon, someone he would be stuck with for the foreseeable future, a new someone to disappoint?  Here and now were not the time.  

Long used to occupying the edge of a crowd, to staying in the shadows unnoticed and unbothered, Soul drifted towards the edge of the room as others mingled, leaning into a space between windows, his posture slouched and his arms folded protectively over his chest in a move he hoped made him appear unapproachable.  

Most people seemed to get the message and stayed away–he was damned good at sending off the leave me alone vibe and most people caught on and ignored him.

Most people, everyone else, but not her.

Sunday Night Music Club: Cobra Starship

Tonight we’re featuring Cobra Starship’s hit single ‘Never Been In Love’ featuring Icona Pop in honor of frontman Gabe Saporta’s birthday today! Be sure to wish him happy birthday on Twitter - @gabrielsaporta 

Hey, tell me if I’m crazy
But when you come around, round
It’s kind of amazing
My head goes through clouds
Above the rain and I’m never coming down down
Now that you saved me, babyThat stupid party talked outside
Walked to your place stayed up ‘til 5
You’d never think a random night could change your lifeI know now I’ve never been in love before
I know now I’ve never been in love before you
