introducing jenna

anonymous asked:

Who takes who's last name when married??

michael and jeremy become mell-heere. michael likes to say ‘michael mell-heere’ in a way that sounds like ‘michael mell, here’ and he thinks its funny. he can also say it in a really stupid poor imitation of kermit the frog’s voice and it gets jeremy every time

jake & rich become mr and mr goranski bc if you think for One Second that jake isnt taking rich’s last name, ur dead wrong. rich is like “i mean are you sure??” and jake’s like “dude jake goranski sounds so badass ofc im sure”

chloe takes brooke’s last name!! for a long time brooke thinks her last name is lame bc ppl mispronounce it all the time and to her lohst is so plain compared to ~valentine~ so when chloe’s like “it just feels right” brooke just starts crying on the spot lmao

jenna & christine become the canigulas and jenna says it all the time she always introduces herself as jenna canigula even if it’s just a first name/casual scenario bc she just likes hearing it lmao

BMC 50′s AU

this is also a callout to the BMC discord chat

This just a first draft and introduction to the AU, there is a LOT more
The Clique (Jeremy, Chloe, Brooke, and Jenna):
-Jeremy works at a soda shop with Chloe, it’s how they met and how he got into the clique
-Brooke works at a Carhop and is boss at roller skates

The Gang (Michael, Christine, Rich, and Jake):
-Michael works at an arcade
-He’s the one that fixes the machines and the jukebox
-Christine works at a candy shop
-Jake works at a record store (he always alerts Michael of new releases)
-Rich is a gas station attendant and he’s damn good at his job
-Michael and Jake have cars (Michael’s has a tendency to break down)
-Rich and Christine have motorbikes (Rich’s looks like it’s gonna fall apart)
-aro/ace mom friend Christine
-she can dead lift Rich
-basically the leader of the gang
-the boys are pretty sure she’s killed a man (of kindness or just in general)

-and they become friends
-michael gets to know the other members of the clique when chloe is working, brooke stops by, and when jenna covers for jeremy
-Jeremy meets the gang because 2 loud obnoxious guys wasting the ketchup tends to draw attention.
-when he meets Chris he gets flustered cause she’s hella adorable and she’s so sweet and asks him questions about himself and it’s Chris.
-he’s also terrified of her cause he saw that time she decked Rich
-the groups don’t really merge much
-they’ve at least all been introduced
-jenna just knows all their shit
-but the girls do steal away christine sometimes and send jer with the gang
-this is how jeremy starts seeing michael outside of work and school
-also how he learns about rich and jake
-he knows they have dated girls before so he was a lil confused when he found out they were dating
-they aren’t obnoxiously open about their relationship in public
-but once they are hanging out at michael’s they start doing cutesie shit

bmc hogwarts au hcs

changed my mind about doing all the years in one post, i’ll try to do 3-4 tomorrow


gryffindor: rich, jake

slytherin: jeremy, chloe, jenna,

ravenclaw: christine

hufflepuff: michael, brooke

i’m not putting the reasons behind the houses, if you disagree, that’s fine, we all have different ideas

this is gonna be a long ass post, covering only years 1-2

@keplcrs helped with some of these! hcs in bold belong to them!

- most of them didn’t really know each other, apart from michael and jeremy

- the two met at the train station, jeremy rammed into michael while running around the platforms 9 and 10 trying to find platform 9¾

- but apart from them, most of our kiddos didn’t know sht about the others

- sure chloe would notice that walking tree kid with brown hair with some kind of creature following him

- or michael sitting by that theatre kid, always having to dive out of the way before her potions went boom

- first year was pretty chill for them

-apart from jeremy making a scene in flying lessons, chloe and jenna got a fucking kick out of that

- second  year however, things got a bit interesting

- michael has seen brooke around before, she seemed pretty nice, maybe a bit naive

-after an incident with brooke’s owl ending with a nasty head wound, the two started talking

-they became pretty close after

-michael still has the scar from that even to this day

-he gets a ton of ‘hello potter’ or ‘hey there harry!’

-jake was always told he had a good throwing arm,

- and he was pretty good at sharp turns and quick dives on his broom

- so he wasn’t very surprised when he was chosen to be a chaser

- it made a bit of a ruckus, he 12 for merlin’s sake

- though he was still kept on the team,

- during games, he’d see a boy around the stands

-the boy had a rooster streak, with scars going up and down his arms

- jake would steal a few glances, the kid always seemed to be looking at him

- jake thought he seemed pretty cool and maybe cute too

- jake tried looking for him in the halls but he never seemed to be there

- jake knew he was in his house and in the same year, but damn it seemed like the kid wasn’t there

- no one knew his name or his classes

- now, even though he was in quidditch, he honestly preferred herbology and care for magical creatures

- whenever they pulled out the mandrakes, jake’s was real chill, hugging his hand and not making a sound while the others screamed bloody fucking murder

- he always had something following him, an owl? for sure, toads? hell yeah, seriously he’s a disney princess

- whenever he wakes up there would be birds singing on his windowsill and everything

- chloe  valentine, dubbed the princess slytherin, (the malfoys held the title of king and queens,) was a pureblood as was fuckin proud of it

- no one messed with her

- she usually stuck with those of high status, and her childhood friend jenna

- she always found a way to skip classes, or not do shit in projects and not get in trouble

- one day she was skipping, sitting in the gardens practising charms and spells

- until a ton of fucking doves were shot at her

- of course, she was mad, her hair was pretty much a pillow, feathers everywhere

- she got a bit cut up too

- she was ready to ruin somebody’s social status, chloe turned to the direction where the doves came from

- only to see that hufflepuff- brooklyn was it? standing there looking like she witnessed seeing her favourite toy thrown into a shredder

- the girl immediately began apologizing, summoning napkins and band-aids

- usually, chloe would’ve beaten her to a pulp, but for some reason, she didn’t

- chloe didn’t know why, but the girl seemed so guilty

- chloe just let her remove the feathers and try to cover the scratches in band-aids

- chloe tried to talk to her, asking why she wasn’t in class, and why she decided to use avis here of all places

- brooke of course was taken aback, the chloe valentine, was willingly talking to her?

- now brooke wasn’t what you’d expect

- she was basically like michael, a huge nerd with a big heart

- yes, she was pretty, but that was basically all anyone cared about her

- brooke said that this gryffindor was teasing her, brooke was shit at charms she knew that, but it hurt even more when someone else said it

- so she was practising, wanting to prove them wrong

- chloe asked if brooke knew the gryffindors name

- ` i think it was dustin `

- ‘lets ruin his goddamn year.’

- and that’s how dustin became known for having his hair dyed neon green and yellow, with bird poop all over his robes

- no one messed with brooke after, and she was one of chloe’s closest friends after

- brooke was later introduced to jenna, and the two hit it off

- jeremy and michael were the hufflepuff-slytherin  duo

- jeremy was often called the ‘nicest slytherin’ no one really had any idea how he was placed there

- until jeremy punched some guy for making fun of michael

- jeremy has a major sweet tooth, in his room, there is so many empty containers of bertie botts and chocolate frog cards

- this kid, connor, was it? always complained about it

- jeremy purposely dumped all his trash there just to tick him off

- in the middle of the year, things start to get r e a  l interesting

- there was an ear-splitting shriek in the halls one day,

- everyone ran over to see what it was all about

- chloe was standing in the hallway , eyes wide with horror

- brooke laid on the floor, she wasn’t limp, just frozen

- brooke’s eyes were wide, she looked like she was ready to scream, it seemed like she was about to step back

- chloe looked so distraught

- jenna rushed over, trying her best to comfort her

- michael was also in tears, pulling his robes hood over his head, jeremy pulled michael close

- this was the first time all of them were in the same room

- the professors shoved their way through the crowd, telling everyone to leave

- most of them did, the school was really tense

- something was lurking around the school

- jake was walking back, when he noticed a red streak

- jake grabbed the boys hand,

- rooster streak immediately tensed up, whirling around ready to deck jake

- rich immediately calmed down

- `oh, it’s just you.`

- holy shit he had a lisp

‘hey- i’ve seen you in the stands during quidditch, you seem pretty cool’

- rich was really confused, why would gryffindor’s golden boy want to talk to him?

- but there he was, sitting with jake as they ate lunch, both trying to figure out what happened

- they felt someone tap on both their shoulders

- `hey you’re that kid that blew up the potions classroom!`

-  ’ughh, i thought you all would’ve forgotten.’ the girl laughed though it was hollow, forced, she sat next to jake

- they all introduced themselves, and christine proposed they could go talk to chloe, maybe see if she knew anything

- so the trio walked to the slytherin table, chloe glared at them, telling them to leave

- chloe’s makeup was all smudged, jenna was trying her best to fix it

- christine asked if she knew anything, or what happened

- all chloe said was she and brooke were walking to lunch, when brooke stopped for a moment,

- then she just- fell, frozen

- jeremy was listening, along with michael- who always ate at the slytherin table with him

- michael piped up, suggesting they could explore the library for clues.

- so of course, that’s how the newly found gang snuck into the library with the help of jenna’s potion skills.

- michael and chloe definitely clash and argue since brooke was their mutual friend but they hardly interacted

- jeremy is probably really jumpy because “guys this is against the rules what if we get caught g UYS”

- jenna made invisibility potions for them, but it killed her and she lived off of sugar and caffeine the afternoon she worked on them

- they all met up outside the library, but already they made a scene

- `ow! jenna that’s my foot!` ‘sorry michael!’

- they manage to get in, and they all began scrolling through books and reading the spines of the books, looking for anything that made sense

- during that time, rich dropped his oil lamp, it made a loud crash and the floor caught fire, everyone f r e a k e d™

- `shit! rich what the hell did you do!` ‘fuckfuckfuck jake step on it put it out’ `wtf why do i have to do it-` ‘gUYS flamel is gonna hear us!!’

- the chaos continues, jeremy trips on a chair, chloe loses the key to the restricted section, and jake got lost in the mythical creatures section with chris

- everyone nearly screamed when they heard loud footsteps


- they all tripped over each other trying to hide or get out unseen. it was a total disaster.

- rich and christine scrambled to the bookshelves, using their height as an advantage, they curled up surrounded by books

- michael darted under a table, chloe ran behind a potted plant, and nearly screamed when she saw a spider behind it, jeremy didn’t know where to go, so he just hid with michael, jenna took another douse of her extra invisibility potion, scrambling into a corner

- why not just stand out of the way? jenna thought it wouldn’t take long, and with more people, they should’ve split up, so she cut the potions duration time down

- that means they were slowly becoming more visible by the second

-it was so tense guys

- flamel took so long to leave

- they all were so relieved until-

- `wait wheres jake-`

- and then they panic ag a i n because “guys we lost jake how did we lose him he’s like 6 feet tall”

- jeremy was ready to curl up and fucking die, this was too much for hiM

- `jake where’d you go? i can’t find you!`

‘jake take it slow, stay where you are till we find you!’

- the weren’t even close to finding jake, and the moon had definitely changed positions

- jeremy and michael noticed something that put them all on edge, they found jake’s oil lamp, just discarded on a table

not far away, books were tossed about, there were a few indents where nails  dug into them

- but it was getting early, they had to leave

- rich was extremely worried, so many scenarios played out in his head

- jeremy is in tears, and even christine can’t seem to keep up the positivity

- the next day, they all didn’t say anything about jake, but they all knew what the others were thinking

- this carried on for two more days until jake just- appeared

- he acted like nothing happened, that everything was fine

- no one trusted him

- something happened, they all noticed jake’s futile attempts to cover a cut on his cheek, or how he’d jump at the slightest sound

- one day they were all walking back when a swarm of students went past them,

- curious, they all followed the crowd, pushing past the kids and making their way to the front

- there on the wall, something was written in blood

- mrs. norris hung from a torch, petrified just like brooke

- the group scattered again, some staying behind to watch the scene, others running away.

the chambers of secrets has been opened, enemies of the heir, beware.”

- the next few days were tense, no one trusted the slytherins, chloe, jenna, and jeremy stuck together, going to most classes together

- michael seemed jumpier, and everyone noticed that journal that seemed to be older than jenna’s grandma, he would always keep it with him

- jeremy knew he wasn’t spending enough time with michael but whenever he tried to talk to him, michael would dismiss him

- the school was seeing more and more petrified students, all were muggleborns

- rich and michael were constantly being watched over, whether it be by jake, christine or jeremy

- one night though, as rich was walking back from potions, he heard something sliding across the floor, the spiders in the stone corridors fled, running from something

- `what the fuck-`

- rich glanced up, he was in front of the trophy case

- and in the reflection of the glass, two yellow eyes stared back at him

- rich didn’t feel a thing

- they found him later, jake broke down

- jake refused to go to any of his classes, he just sat there by rich

- he was supposed to look after him

- during quidditch, he put most of his anger out on the ball, using as much force as he could

- the next day, michael disappeared

- not a trace to be found

- but, michael left behind the journal,

- jeremy and jake were cautious, but eventually, they opened it

- after just staring at empty pages, jake wrote down a quick greeting

- jeremy freaked out, falling over when it wrote back

(cue the hagrid is framed jazz)

- they go to question hagrid, only to get the cryptic message

- `follow the spiders? the fuck?` ‘he knew right?-’ `yeah, but where? there are spiders everywhere?!`

- the two slip away, only for all the spiders to crawl up jake, trying to get him to follow them, jake had a look of minor disgust

- ‘why spiders? why couldn’t it be follow the butterflies?’ jeremy wasn’t very happy as he followed jake

- they figure out he’s innocent and jazz, after aragog scarred them for life of course

- after some help with christine, they figure out where to go, the girl’s lavatory

- jake was glad to get away from myrtle, who was a bit too flirtatious

- `she’s a ghost for crying out loud! probably older than me!`

- they find michael, and the fight goes down. jeremy, christine and jake work together this time

- but fawkes still had to help out

- the trio are deemed heros, which jeremy was definitely not used to

- michael and jeremy had a talk, and it ended in a lot of hugs and tears

- when rich and brooke arrived along with the other petrified students, it was very very very gay™

- chloe swung brooke around and just hugged her real tight

- no homo tho

- for jake and rich? they might as well kiss for fuck’s sake

that’s for the first two years, this took all day and i’m d r a  i n e d™

once again, thank you @keplcrs for some of the headcanons!

Ok but Jenna Rolan standing in front of a mirror for h o u r s introducing herself as "Jenna Canigula" in different types of voices and scenarios just to test out the way it feels

NOOOO THATS SO CUTE??? she knows a lot of diff tones/voices to convey certain moods bc of christine’s constant practices for her roles that jenna picks up on a bit by extension and she can go from a dead-serious, no-nonsense “jenna canigula.” to a really flowery/bouncy “jenna canigula!!!” and she loves the way All of them sound


His Benefit: “Nice to see you again“

Request: “Can you do an imagine where Josh’s high school girlfriend gets pregnant before he goes on his first tour and she doesn’t tell him anything cause se didn’t want to ruin his dream of being a drummer? And then they run into each other years later and stuff. That was kinda specific lol (I love your writing so much ❤)“

“Mommy!“ an agonising voice cries, as you walk through the door.

“What‘s wrong, buttercup?“ you panic, wrapping your arms around the little 6-year-old and pull her close, gently rubbing her back. She tries to speak, but the words coming out of her mouth are barely understandable by the sobbing sound. She sobs into your chest unceasingly, hands clutching at your jacket. You hold her, rocking slowly as the tears soak your chest. After a while she pulls away, blinking lashes heavy with tears, that make tracks down her face and drip from her trembling chin, while clear watery snot streak from her nostrils down to her slightly open quivering lips.

“Do you wanna tell mommy why you‘re crying, Lia?“ you ask softly, voice filled with concern while wiping away her tears with both of your thumbs.

“L-lucas made f-fun of me b-because I don‘t have a d-dad. I told him I do, b-but he called me a l-liar!“

Summary: You and your best friend were surprised when you got the opportunity to become a trainee and fullfill your long lost dream, little did you know the hardships you’d find not only in adapting to this new life, but also matters of the heart you’d never expect to happen.

word-count: 3.692

genre: fluff/angst

“Are you sure you wanna do this?“ You turned to Y/F/N and asked.

"There’s no way to escape now, is there?”

“I don’t think so, are you nervous?”

"Apparently not as much as you are Y/N.”

“Stop it; I know all that confidence is a defense mechanism.”

She laughed and nodded.

You were both nearing your new residency aka a dorm full of trainees in a foreign country for you both.

If anyone said you’d be on this situation a year ago, you’d laugh and tell that person that they are crazy, but then it happened, you and your friend were hanging out when you watched the new video uploaded by SM and surprise; they will hold the global audition where you two live!

Perfect Only last So Long- Tyler Joseph Part Thirteen

Tyler’s P.O.V.

I saw the look in Y/N’s eyes when I asked her if Gabby could meet Jenna. It was hurt and I wasn’t even sure if I wanted Gabby to meet Jenna anymore. I loved Jenna, but I loved Y/N. Y/N and I had history, a daughter, and I wanted a future with her. I knew she did too, but I didn’t know how to talk to her about it. We had Gabby together and I wanted to be a family, but at the same time I had a girlfriend.

“Dad look it’s a baby giraffe and a mommy giraffe and a daddy?” Gabby said pointing excitedly.

“It’s like whole giraffe family.” I said picking her up so she could get a better view.

“Like you, me, and mommy.” she said and I smiled. “Do you love mommy?” she asked me and I wasn’t sure what to say.

“Well yes, if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have you.” is what I decided on telling her, but of course she had more questions.

“Why don’t you live with us? I miss you when you’re gone.”

“Oh sweetheart, I’m never gone. I’m always right here.” I said pointing to her heart. “I’m also always one phone call away. I don’t live with you because me and mommy aren’t together anymore. I miss you terribly when I’m not with you, but mommy misses you too when you’re not with her.”

“Can you live with us. Nobody will miss anyone when we are together. The giraffes live together, why can’t we?” she asked.

“Mommy and I are just friends. That would be weird.” I said. I wasn’t sure how to answer these questions. She had so many.

“But you said you loved her. Mommy talks about you a lot. She use to cry when listening to your songs.” she said sad and I felt bad.

“What does she say about me?”

“That she loves you. She thinks I’m asleep when she talks to me, but I’m not. She said that she wishes she could change things, make them better for me. She said she would leave one day, I’m not really sure what she means. Doesn’t she love me?”

“Of course she loves you. She’s never leaving you, just like I’ll never leave you.” I told her kissing her forehead.

We continue around the zoo but I couldn’t get my mind off of what Gabby just told me. Y/N loves me still. She cries because of me, and she said she wanted to change the past. I wish I could fix all her worries and issues, but I knew I couldn’t.

“So I wanted to talk to you about something.” I said to Gabby as we sat took a short break on a bench. “When we go out to dinner tonight what do you say my friend comes? She’s really nice and really wants to meet you.”

“Who?” she asked while kicking her legs back and forth over the edge of the bench.

“Her names Jenna.” I said smiling then went on to tell her a little about Jenna. I even showed her a picture of us together.

“Do you love her? You look happy when you tell me about her.”

“You know for a 3 year old you pick up on a lot.” I said smiling. “Yes I do love her and she really wants to meet you. Can she come along with us?”

“Yeah. I have another question. Do you love mommy like you love Jenna?” she asked me and I sat there in silence for a second. I hadn’t really even asked myself that question. I actually did, but I didn’t want come to terms with what I really wanted.

“That’s a tough question. How about we go get you a balloon and I’ll think of an answer.” I said and she started running towards the balloons.

Later that night we drove to the restaurant where we would meet Jenna. We sat at a table waiting and I stood when I saw her coming towards our table. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and she took a seat across from Gabby and I.

“So you must be Gabby. I’m Jenna.” she said and Gabby grew shy. I had never seen her like this, she was typically a loud and bubbly kid.

“Can you say hi.” I asked her and she waved small and moved close to my side basically hiding behind me.

She stayed that way most of the time, only moving to grab some food off her plate. She didn’t speak unless I asked her the question. 

“It was good to meet you Gabby. I hope I can see you again sometime.” Jenna said to Gabby when we went to leave, Gabby hiding behind my leg.

Jenna looked at me as if asking if everything was okay. I shrugged. “I’m not really sure. I’ll call you later once I get her home. I love you.” I told Jenna kissing her and then heading out to the car with Gabby in my arms.

“You okay?” I asked Gabby as I put her into her car seat. She seemed sad and a bit scared. I wasn’t really sure what was wrong, but maybe it was too soon to bring Jenna into the picture.

“I wanna see mommy.” is all she said tears starting to brim her eyes.

“We’re going home now. Don’t be upset, you’re safe.” I said before shutting her door and going to the driver’s seat.

I felt bad, I scared her by introducing her to Jenna. I had only just met Gabby 4 months ago and it was probably weird for her to see me kissing someone else. She knew her mom loved me and she didn’t understand. She’s only four and she’s seeing two people that say they love each other with someone else. 

She eventually fell asleep in the car and I carried her up to Y/N’s apartment.

“Looks like she had fun today. Here put her in her bed.” Y/N lead me to Gabby’s room.

I put her down and kissed her before leaving.

“So how did it go?” Y/N asked me when she shut Gabby’s door.

“Good until we went out to dinner. I don’t know I’ve never seen her so shy before. I think it was too soon for Jenna to enter the picture.” I explained.

“I’m sorry about that. Tell Jenna I’m sorry too. She gets that way when she’s nervous. I think maybe try again in a week or two. She’ll warm up to her fast.” Y/N told me with a smile that I could see right through.

“Are you okay with it?” I asked her.

“Of course. If Jenna and Gabby are going to be in your life then they need to know each other.”

“No, I mean with me and Jenna?”

Her face fell a bit and I heard her breathing become unsteady.

“I’m fine with it. As long as you’re happy and Gabby is safe, I’m fine with it. Plus what can I do about it. You love her don’t you?”

“Yeah I guess. I should really go soon, it’s been a long day. Good night Y/N.” I said putting my hand on the doorknob to leave the apartment. I so badly wanted to tell her how I really felt, but I wasn’t even sure what those feelings were.

“Good night Ty.” she said and I left.

Y/N’S P.O.V.

After Tyler left I peeked into Gabby’s room and gave her a kiss. I missed her so much today, I could barely function. It was hard letting her go with someone else when you had had her to yourself for her entire life. You didn’t like the idea of her meeting Jenna, you felt as if you were being replaced. You couldn’t control Tyler, but you so badly wanted him to see that you loved him, that you wanted him back.

You went back to your room and locked the door, back to the place you had been all day. Back to the same spot you sat and cried all day. When Tyler told you that he was seeing someone you got jealous. You knew he wasn’t yours, but the way you two would talk everyday late at night, you grew feelings for him, if you ever lost them in the beginning. Tears streamed down your face full of regret and doubt. You were reaching your end again. You were mentally and emotionally tired. You felt like Gabby was being take from you and she was all you had. Now with Jenna in the picture Gabby would realize soon how awful of a mom you are.

“Mommy?” you heard from outside of your locked door.

You quickly wiped your face of any tears and cleared your throat standing and opening the door for your daughter.

“Hi princess. Do you wanna sleep with mommy tonight?” you asked her picking her up.

She laid her head on your shoulder and you took that as a yes.

“I love you mommy. Nobody will ever replace you.” she said yawning as you laid into bed with her still hugging her tight.

“I love you too princess.” you said with a tear running down your cheek.

She fell asleep on top of you and you silently cried. She was probably scared you would be mad if she talked to Jenna. You were putting your feelings on your child and it was affecting her. This whole situation was a mess, but you needed it to be organized for Gabby.

“I’m going to make this all better for you. Okay princess, you’ll be happier.” you whispered to your sleeping child.

“This isn’t too bad.”, Kira shouted over the loud music. Lydia, Malia and you looked at her, as if you said ‘Yes, Yes it is bad.’. Most of the people were already drunk although the party only stated an hour ago.

The guys had gone to the kitchen to get all of you drinks. A couple of minutes where all of you just awkwardly stood around passed when Stiles and Scott returned. You furrowed your eyebrows, wondering where your boyfriend was.

“Where’s Theo?”, you asked Scott as he handed you a drink. He swallowed some alcohol which probably didn’t affect him anyway before he answered. “He stayed in the kitchen, I guess he met someone he knows.”, he shrugged and turned towards Kira.

You frowned. How could Theo probably know someone from here? He came to Beason Hills this year and last lived here when he was like ten. You slowly found your way to the kitchen, wanting to know who he talked to. As you reached the kitchen, you spotted him leaning against the kitchen island, talking to a girl. Oh well. 

You stared at the both of them as they talked and laughed together before you returned to your friends. Soon, Lydia and Stiles, as well as Scott and Kira went to the dance floor, leaving only Malia and you.

“I don’t get parties, what’s so good about them?”, Malia asked, turning to you. You chuckled at her remark. “You know it can be funny, but you can’t get drunk so it stays lame for you.”, you explained and she furrowed her eyebrows in response.

You smiled and looked around the room as you spotted Theo and that girl you’ve never seen in your life came your way. They approached you still laughing and you wondered who could even laugh that much. You slightly rolled your eyes.

“Hey guys!”, Theo greeted you, grinning. Your face showed no emotion which made him frown immediately. “That’s Jenna, an old friend of mine.”, he introduced her. Jenna smiled brightly at you and waved shortly. “Jenna, that’s…”, Theo trailed off as he saw how pissed off you were.

“I’m Y/N, his girlfriend, if he didn’t tell you.”, you told Jenna, faking a smile. Jenna’s smile now faded too. Theo awkwardly coughed. “Yeah, uhm, we better go.”, he said as he put a hand on the lower back of Jenna and walked away with her. Your jaw almost hit the ground as you realized what just happened. 

“What just happened, Y/N?”, Malia asked you, trying to understand the feelings she smelled on you. Anger. Sadness. Disappointment. “I think my boyfriend just turned me down.”, you told her, not looking at her.

Now you and Malia sat on a couch, while Malia had to repeatedly refill your cup with alcohol. “You know, I’m usually not that jealous, you know me.”, you slightly slurred and Malia looked down at you and shook her head. She knew you had been jealous your whole life. 

Although Malia couldn’t get drunk herself, she actually was pretty amused with your drunken state. You held your empty cup her way and she slowly refilled it with tequila. You quickly drowned the whole cup and your sight was blurry for a split second. “It’s not that I was jealous the second I saw them together,”, you started, looking at your friend. “it’s just that he left.”, you explained. “With her.”

You looked down and closed your eyes as you tried to calm your drunken self. “I can kick his ass, if you want.”, Malia suddenly suggested. Your head instantly shot up and met her gaze and you exploded in laughter. Malia smiled as she saw that she made you laugh. “That would be great, thanks.”, you giggled. 

“May you refill my cup now, ma’am?”, you asked her, giggling. She smiled and shook her head once again as she refilled your cup. You quickly drowned it and then continued giggling. 

“Y/N?”, you head Theo’s voice asking for you. Your head quickly spun around and you got dizzy for a second. “What?”, you asked. “Y/N, I’m sorry for earlier-”, he started explaining but you cut him off. “Nope. I don’t even wanna hear it, yanno? I don’t careee.”, you slurred, which made Theo furrow his eyebrows in confusion. 

He suddenly spotted the bottle of tequila in Malia’s hand and snapped it away from her. “Did you drink all that?”, he asked shocked. You raised your eyebrows and squinted your eyes at the half empty bottle. “It’s still halfway full, so I guess I drank that.”, you giggled. “No, Y/N. It’s half empty.”, he told you, his voice stern. “Just because you’re a pessimist doesn’t mean I’m drunk.”, you chuckled and looked at Malia, rolling your eyes at the fact that Theo was so strict.

“We’re going home. Now.”, he ordered and you rolled your eyes once again. “Who do you mean ‘we’? You and Jenna?”, you smirked. A look of cunfusion washed over his face. “What does that have to do with Jenna?”, he asked you, but you didn’t even bother to answer. 

“Y/N, we’re leaving this party. Now.”, he demanded and you groaned in response. “See you, Malia.”, you spoke and you hugged her tightly. “I found this highly amusing. We should go to parties more often.”, she told you and you chuckled. 

You stood up from the couch and almost fell back onto it due to how dizzy you were. “Woah, you okay, Y/N?”, Theo asked as he held your small figure to steady you. “I’m fine.”, you said without any emotion in your voice as you freed yourself from his grip. The both of you had almost reached the door when someone called out your boyfriend’s name.

“Theo! Wait a second!”, Jenna shouted from behind as she approached the both of you. “Will I still see you around sometimes? At parties or on weekends?”, she asked him, looking up at him through her long lashes. She was so fake you almost puked.

“Uhm, no.”, you spoke, freeing Theo from Jenna’s grip and standing in front of him. “You won’t see him around. I might have told you this before but you obviously don’t understand how relationships work: I am his girlfriend. You won’t see him anytime soon.”, you told her, concentrating on your words. “Bye!”, you said as sweetly and fake as possible before you turned around and left the house with Theo by your side.

You were so angry you were about to punch someone as suddenly the effect of the alcohol kicked in, making you almost fall over. Theo hurried to your side. “Come on, baby. Let’s get you home.”, he whispered as he picked you up and carried you bridal style to his car. By the time he slowly lay you in the backseat, you were already passed out.

You woke up when Theo carried you into your house. You mumbled something as he carried you up the stairs to your room. “Where the fuck am I?”, you mumbled. Theo chuckled. “I’m trying to bring you home without waking up any of your family members, so it would be nice if you could stay quiet now.”, he said as he pushed open the door to your room. 

He lay you on your bed and pulled off your shoes. Then he pulled down your skirt to replace it with some shorts for the night. When he was done, he made you sit up again so he could pull off your shirt. “That fucking b*tch.”, you mumbled, eyes only half opened. “Who are you talking about?”, Theo questioned as he searched for another shirt. 

You fell back into your pillow because Theo wasn’t quick enough. “Jenna.”, you mumbled and Theo chuckled in response. He soon returned from your closet with another shirt. “You’re jealous, aren’t you?”, he asked as he pulled your shirt over your head, leaving you in your bra. You scoffed. “No? I’m not jealous. I just don’t get how she was all over you when she knew I’m your girlfriend.”, you explained as he put the new shirt over your head.

“You’re jealous.”, he grinned and you rolled your eyes, letting yourself sink into your bed. “Okay maybe a little bit. But that doesn’t matter right now,”, you spoke as you watched how he pulled his shirt off. You’ve seen every little detail of him but it always surprised you how good he looked. 

“You’re drooling, babe.”, he mocked you because he caught you staring at him. “Anyway. Where do you even know her from?”, you curiously asked. “She went to the same school I used to go to.”, he simply explained. You rolled your eyes. Everything about this girl bothered you. 

He chuckled again as he returned to your bed, only wearing his boxers. He let himself fall next to you and immediately pulled your body into his. “I’m only jealous because you seemed to have fun with her and she was literally drooling over how hot you looked and I just,”, you spoke, pausing for a second. “I just can’t lose you, okay? Because I love you so fucking much, you don’t understand.”, you explained while your hand was caressing the skin on his chest.

He slightly smiled at your statement. “It’s okay, baby, I know you’re always going to be jealous and that’s okay because I would have reacted the exact same way.”, he told you as he caressed your cheek. “So you’re not mad at me for getting drunk and yelling at Jenna?”, you asked him.

“Of course not. You are my life, Y/N. There’s so much happening in our world but this will never change.”, he smiled and pulled you into a loving kiss right afterwards.

His hand was now lying on your hip as your lips melted into one. You slowly pulled away after a few minutes. “One more thing, Y/N,”, Theo told you as he turned off the light. 

“What is it?”, you asked. “You’re going to have a huge headache tomorrow.”, he chuckled and you giggled along with him. “Are you still going to be here when I wake up?”, you asked him. “Always.”, he whispered into the silent of the darkness.


I honor of Jenna’s birthday, here’s a little treasure uploaded to YouTube back in 2014 by WhoWars2013. It’s Peter and Jenna introducing what I believe was the very first screening of the very first night of the World Tour. Lovely words from both. And even though the video is a bit blurry - don’t miss the hug they give each other at the 20-second mark.

Rewatching The First Secret...

…And I was wondering why the texts Ali was getting wasn’t signed by -A. It seemed too big a mistake for Marlene to make but I realised, Mona was in fact the ‘A’ in this episode (set a year before the series) but she was the only A. Then in this episode Mona met Jenna, who turned down Alison’s invitation to join her clique because she hated her being superior to everyone else, just like Mona. Mona then introduces herself to Jenna, and vice versa, and this is the start of the 'A team’. Without a group of people to help her who hated Ali as much as she did, there was no team. There was no A. It was just Mona playing silly games and sending non-threatening messages, then it started to get more serious. And as the team grew, so did Mona’s hatred for Alison. So now Mona is -A and her group are her team, hence the A team. The next -A text (actually signed by -A) appears at the end of the episode, after Mona had recruited Jenna to be her aide, because now, they’re a team. Oh, and the creepy baby mask at the end would be Mona, after she had attacked Ali with the knife.

From Here!

“O-Oh, um… Good evening,” the girl gave a little curtsy while clutching the parasol tightly in her hands. She seemed to be anxious about something, blue-green hues darting back and forth as she looked down the streets for anything familiar, “Uh… D-Do you know where I am?”

Meeting The Josephs- Tyler and Jenna Joseph (poly)

A/N- For those who enjoy these types of fan fictions than you should go follow @spoopyboydallon. She post some and they are super cute so go check them out. 

You had been in this relationship for 3 months now and today in your opinion was the scariest. Being in a relationship with both Jenna and Tyler brought a lot of hate towards you. They were already married for 2 years when you all admitted your love to one another during a drunken night. You were friends with Tyler for a long time and Jenna became an immediate best friend when you two met. When Tyler had told you that him and Jenna were getting married you realized how much you regretted never telling Tyler you loved him years ago. You knew Tyler had a thing for you too. You didn’t let it affect your friendship with either one of them.

Now 3 months after coming to terms with the fact that you all were in this love circle thing, you were meeting his family.

Although you had talked with them before you had never met them or talked for more than 5 minutes. When telling his family about the change in the relationship they were very accepting and that was a relief, but that was over the phone. What are they going to think when they actually meet you.

You were really nervous they would think of you as the weird one or that you somehow brainwashed Jenna and Tyler into loving you. You truly loved the two of them and they loved you and all you hoped was for their families to approve of you.

“You guys almost ready?” Tyler asked walking into the bathroom where both you and Jenna were.

“Yup, just finished putting on my make up.” Jenna said.

When you didn’t answer they both looked at you.

“You okay Y/N?” Tyler asked walking over and wrapping his arms around you from behind.

“Um, yeah, actually no.” you said.

“Y/N don’t be nervous. They’re just people, they’re not going to bite. Trust me if I didn’t think they were going to respect you, us, I wouldn’t be bringing you to meet them. They will love you just like they love Jenna. Just breathe.” Tyler told you and you started to calm down.

“Right, they’re just people.” you breathe.

“You ready now?” he asked pulling away from the hug.

You nodded and put away the makeup you just finished applying to your face.

“I remember how nervous I was the first time meeting his family. I walked in the door and his mom hugged me right away and welcomed me into the family. You have nothing to worry about, they’re good people.” Jenna said as you walked out of the bathroom.

Tyler’s parents were going to have a picnic at their house as a get together so they could meet you. Most of his family and close friends were going to be there. This was a huge step in the relationship, but you had to trust what Tyler and Jenna said.

As you pulled up to the house Tyler opened the backdoor for you and Jenna to get out of the car. He must have seen you get nervous again because he kissed you on the cheek and whispered in your ear that it’s all okay.

“Hey Tyler is here.” someone announce as you walked through the door following Jenna and Tyler.

You stayed behind them as you followed them through the house.

His mom and a one of his brothers was in the kitchen.

“Hey you guys. Everyone is outside, food will be ready in about 20 minutes.” his mother said before turning around from the sink to face the 3 of you.  “Jenna you look great and you must be Y/N. It’s so nice to finally meet you.” she opened her arms and hugged you. You immediately felt so much better.

“It’s nice to meet you too Mrs.Joseph.” you said.

“Oh honey don’t call me that. I’m Kelly. Welcome to the Joseph family if you need anything ask.” she said.

“Thank you.” you said with a smile.

“Okay well we’re gonna go outside and see everyone else. Catch up with you in a few mom.” Tyler said and the three of you left and headed to the backyard where there was about 15 people chatting with each other.

“Hey there Ty and Jenna. How’s it going?” Maddy approached with her husband.

“Doing good. Maddy, Will this is Y/N. Y/N this is my sister and her husband.” Tyler introduced you.

“Hey. I hope Jenna warned you that we are now going to be best friends, it kind of just happens in the Joseph family.” Maddy said.

“Sounds good with me.” you said, already knowing Maddy was the sweetest thing on earth from Jenna.

After Tyler and Jenna introducing you to everyone else you settled at a table with Maddy, Jenna, and Tatum (Zach’s wife for the ones who don’t know).

“This is so cool our sister group just grew.” Maddy said.

“I know, I’ve wanted to bring her along with us around town, but she was scared to meet you guys.” Jenna teased.

“Are we really that scary?” Maddy asked.

“I wasn’t scared. I was just nervous you wouldn’t like me.” you admitted, already feeling comfortable with the Joseph’s.

“We’ve like you since the beginning. Tyler and Jenna talk so much about you.” Tatum said and you looked at Jenna.

“All good things of course.” Jenna said kissing you on the cheek.

After more conversation and food you went to go find Tyler. He was sitting in a chair talking to his dad and mom. They were facing the other way so you came up behind them. You didn’t mean to listen into their conversation, but when you heard your name your ears perked up.

“I think Y/N is a lovely lady. She beautiful, kind, and she looks like she really love both you and Jenna.” his father said.

“Yeah she’s something special. She was really nervous about you guys not liking her, but I think she’s feeling better. Thank you for being so accepting to this relationship. We all really love each other and I know it’s early, but I feel the same way I felt for Jenna. I really think I’m in love.” he said and you felt the heat rise in your cheeks.

“Well Tyler as long as you 3 are happy and the relationship is healthy than I think it’s great. We love Jenna and we love Y/N too.” his mother said.

“Thanks guys for everything. I think we’re going to get going soon. Y/N has work early tomorrow.” Tyler said standing.

Before he turned around you started walking the other way and then back again to make it look like you were just walking over as he turned around.

“Oh hey babe. You ready to leave soon, I know tomorrow you have to work early.”

“Yup, ready when you are.” you said and he wrapped his arm around your shoulder. “It was so nice meeting you guys. Thank you for inviting me into this family.” you said with a genuine smile.

“Come over anytime sweetheart the door is always open.” Kelly told you.

You thanked them one last time and then you and Tyler went to Jenna to tell her you were gonna leave. You three said goodbye to the rest of the family and made your way to the car.

“Wasn’t so bad now was it?” Tyler said getting in the front seat as you and Jenna got into the back.

“No, they are amazing.” you said.

“Told you.” Jenna said laying her head on your shoulder.

You kissed her head and you saw Tyler looking in the rear view mirror at the two of you smiling as he drove.

“I love you guys.” you said

“We love you too Y/N.” Tyler said and Jenna mumbled a love you.

Runaway showstopper  (JoshxReader)

This is  going to be short. :/

“Mommy, when can we see Daddy?” Your daughter said impatiently.

“In just a few more minutes dear.” You sighed. You were just as impatient or maybe even more. All you wanted to do right now was to kiss Josh.

Josh was currently on tour with Tyler doing their emotional roadshow tour. They had been on tour for 2 months now and you couldn’t wait to see him.

Oh, and you couldn’t wait to see Tyler. He was your Mom’s best friends son and you guys were forced to hang out but it didn’t matter because you guys got along anyways. Tyler introduced you to josh and you introduced him to jenna.

You pulled up to the venue and walked to the backdoors to get (your daughters name).

“We’re here mommy?” She said jumping up and down.

“Yes, we are love.” You giggled.
You opened the door and were greeted by mark. 

“Well hello, lovely ladies.” Mark smiled picking up Y/D/N.

“MARKY” She squealed. Mark chuckled and placed her back on the ground. “Right this way loves. The show has already started.”
You followed Mark and got on the side of the stage where you had a clear view of Josh and Tyler. Josh was rocking out with his eyes closed and biting his lip. While Tyler was singing his heart out to Lane Boy.

“Can I go see daddy now?” Y/d/n pleaded with puppy eyes she picked up on Josh. “Not yet baby.”

“But I want to see Daddy now. Look he’s right there. DADDY!” She yelled running on stage. Your eyes wide in running to grab her. 

“Baby, come back here.” You shouted. 

“They say stay in your La- Whoa!”  Tyler stopped, looking at you. 

“Hi” You say quickly running pass. Then you heard Josh drop his drum sticks. 

You looked up to see Josh holding Y/d/n tightly. 


“Oooh, My baby. I missed you so much.” 

The crowed awwed and roared. They were going crazy. You ran up to Josh and all hugged. 

“Sorry everyone, it seems we got a little run away showstopper.” Josh laughed letting go. “That was really adorable.” Tyler chucked. 

“Uncle Tyler!” She giggled running into Tyler’s arms. 

“Oh my god, she just called me Uncle Tyler.” Tyler smiled big. 

“Sorry babe, we’ll be back stage. Under control this time.” You smiled. “Love you.” 

“Okay, love you too and you” Josh smiled kissing Y/d/n.

anonymous asked:

Hiya, Ashlee! Could I bother for just a second? I'm having quite a bit of trouble writing lately; I have an idea set for what I want to write, but I just can't get the juices flowing enough to press my fingers to the keyboard and make progress. There are somethings I REALLY want to get to, including a huge project I want to get moving, but I can't shake away this block holding me back. Do you have any tips on how to break away and get to writing again??? Thanks! -That sweet Anon from earlier. :D

Hey sweet anon!! You’re not a bother at all, I’m actually flattered you’d even think to ask me. :)

I understand perfectly well what a bitch writer’s block can be. I have a few different methods I use to break through it, so I’m just going to throw them all at you in no particular order and hope that one of them helps. 

Disclaimer: some of them will be contradictory because every case of writer’s block is different and what works one time might not work another. Also take everything with a grain of salt because a) I am sadly not a professional author, b) I am probably terrible at giving advice and c) it is very late and I may or may not be high on cold and flu medicine. 

Let’s go!

  • That scene that you can’t get out of your head? That one exchange of dialogue that keeps echoing through your thoughts, even though you have absolutely no idea who’s saying it or why? That little spark for your big project that makes you get butterflies in your tummy, the idea that started it all? Write it down. It doesn’t have to make sense. It doesn’t need any context at all. Don’t bother about stitching it into a larger plot or universe right now - just get it on the page. Yeah, it’s not going to sound as good on paper (or screen) as it does in your head, but it’s no good to anyone if you just keep it up there. The important thing is to just start writing. Worry about everything else later, and just start with what you have. You never know what could flow on from there.
  • But Ashlee, I hear you say, What if I don’t have any scenes or dialogue yet?! Never fear! If all you have is an idea - not even a plot, just a raw, basic, idea - you’re still good to go. 
  • Grab yourself a nice big piece of paper and write your idea down in the middle of the page. That’s right, we’re going to mind map this bitch. I find it helpful to use different colours for different things - one colour for character ideas, one colour for plot ideas, another for sub-plots, another for backstory, etc. etc. Apart from that, there’s no order to this part. Literally scribble all over the page, wherever you like, whatever comes to your mind. If one idea links immediately to another, sweet, draw a pretty coloured line between them and give yourself a pat on the back. If not, it doesn’t even matter. You’ve got plenty more paper to fill, so just leave that lonely little idea floating there in your cloud and move on to the next one: they’re all going to link up eventually, so don’t feel bad for it. 
  • Once you’ve got your awesome multicoloured mind map, step back from it and admire your handiwork. Look at all those words on the page! You did that! You deserve a cookie. Go get a cookie and then come back to your pretty mind map. It’s time to turn it into some not-so-pretty documents.
  • Group ideas based on colour and type them up into separate documents: At this point I normally do one for characters, one for plot and one for whatever the hell else I wrote down in my initial creative frenzy. 
  • Let’s start with the character document. I love characters. I especially love my own characters. They’re like my babies. (My teenaged, fictional babies.) But at this point in the process I don’t give them very much attention. I write down what I’ve got - usually a physical description, age, what their main goal/motivation is and some defining features that have bearing on the plot (eg. selfish, over achiever, etc.). 
  • And then I leave them alone. I’m a big believer in letting characters grow and develop over the course of the plot, so I don’t like to cram too much information on them immediately. Some people fill out massive character forms, but I’m not about that. If I know I want them to start out one way and end up a changed person by the end of the story, of course I write that down. But it is literally in the form of: “Starts out selfish. Develops heart/conscience. Sacrifices own happiness/original goal for others and ends up getting happiness through that act anyway.” Bam. Done. No more detail needed right now. Say bye to your babies and move on.
  • The plot document is next! You’re going to use a lot of headings and bullet points here. Probably. I do, anyway. Now is the time for me to introduce my good friend - outlining! (Outlining and I are actually not friends. We’re more like begrudging students who got paired up for a group assignment and really don’t want to work together but know that we have to in order to get a good grade, so we’re all passive aggressive and complain about each other to our friends for the whole project but end up pulling it together at the end and getting a pretty good mark. But whatevs.)
  • Take the points from your mind map and put them into a rough chronological order. After that, try to fill in any gaps you have, but don’t feel too bad about empty spaces. If you need to write “Something awesome happens here and they escape” just go ahead and do that. No one will judge you. Once you’ve got a big, very rough plot outline down, the fun really begins. 
  • Take that outline and break it down into three acts. Beginning, Middle, End. Simple, right? Now take each of those sections and break them down into chapters, where one big plot point/event/development occurs each chapter. Underneath the chapter number and the summary of the plot development you just assigned to it, break it down into three scenes (by scenes I don’t necessarily mean scenes, like how they use the term in screenwriting, I more mean it in the sense of pacing/emotional beats). In these scenes it’s good to make notes of any new characters or plot developments being introduced.
  • Here’s an example from the first draft of the outline I did for my novel.
    ACT I:
    Chapter 1: Introduce Jenna, Harper, Elle and Gabby as they move into their new dorm for their final year of school, and Jenna finds the weird old book.
    Scene I: Jenna saying goodbye to her dad, moving in with the girls and giving a basic rundown of how things work at this school/are different from what she’s used to.
    Introduce basic physical descriptions and history of the girls.
    Introduce Jenna’s dad being a professor on a research trip, hence the boarding school.
    Scene II: As Jenna’s unpacking and putting her stuff away she discovers a secret compartment in one of her drawers, inside of which is the book with notes about a storm and a shipwreck.
    Scene III: Jenna’s first day of classes.
    Establish Jenna as a good student.
    Introduce Bill the prefect.
    Introduce Chekhov’s Gun!!!!
  • You see some scenes are more detailed than others. I haven’t gone into what each scene really entails, and I haven’t even got a Chekhov’s Gun yet, I just know that I want one. Because Chekhov’s Guns are one of my favourite tropes and I love them. But anyway. The point of this outline isn’t to be super detailed and to have your entire story worked out - it’s simply to give you little breadcrumbs that you can follow when you get lost. They’re just jumping off points that remind you of all the bases you need to cover. 
  • If you have any snippets of dialogue or specific ideas you know you want to include, they’re just added bonuses you can put in their corresponding scenes. 
  • Don’t panic if you don’t have enough information to do an outline like that for your entire story! At first I actually only did an outline like the one above for Act I. Act III got a single paragraph summing up how I wanted the story to end, and Act II only got a few disjointed sentences with lots of question marks at the ends. But it didn’t matter, because I had a starting point, and as I wrote other stuff came to me and it got easier to fill in the gaps for the rest.
  • If you’ve made it this far go get yourself another cookie, because you’re being a real trooper. 
  • As you write, if you come to a scene that’s not working, skip it. Move on. Come back to it later. Maybe you don’t even need it, or maybe you just aren’t looking at it the right way at the moment. Whatever the case, let future you deal with it and just jump ahead for now.
  • If you want to go ahead and write random scenes in no particular order at all, do it. I do it sometimes, and store them in a separate document until I get up to that point in the manuscript. Then I copy and paste them in, do a bit of tweaking and reward myself for how much my word count just jumped with very little effort from my present self.
  • If neither randomly writing nor outlining is helping you, go ahead and step back from the project a bit. Go get another cookie. Go sit in the sun. Go for a drive with the windows down and try to find the exact words to describe how the wind feels against your face. Do not feel guilty for this. Everything is research.
  • When you come back, you don’t have to dive straight back into the proper writing. Make a playlist for your story. Choose a fancast. Make edits. Go searching for random prompts that don’t match your plot at all but will be a good exercise in character. Not everything you write has to have the goal of being in your final draft.
  • That’s a really important thing I’m going to emphasise: Don’t look at this with any sort of finality. First drafts are always crap. They’re meant to be crap, it’s why they’re called first drafts. A lot of the words you write today are not the words that are going to get published, so who cares if they don’t quite flow? They’re there, you wrote them, and that’s all that matters.

I have no idea if this makes any sense at all - I definitely went off on a few tangents - but I hope that you find something in there that can help you get past writer’s block. Feel free to message me if you have any questions or comments, and good luck with your projects!!
