“i just don’t see it”

the comic:

- shinny AND junior show feature a classic. a fav…… the same fond nursey smile-smirk that always seems to crop up when he’s teasing chowder. 

how often does this happen??????????????????????????????????

- if you look close enough in ‘post I: roadie’ chowder and nursey are both team attic. enough said
- taddy tour: we witness our confident sophomores mentoring the taddies :’) this has nothing to do with them together but it just warms my dead heart so it’s going on the list

the tweets:

- “chowder: hey jack are you going to watch the sharks game or the kings game if youlike LA uh i’m from san francisco so–
nursey: dude. chill.”
[holster voice] oh my god i’m so sorry but i sTIILL GEEET JEEALLOUSS

What's your opinion on this robot harry?For me it's so annoying he can't even pretend to be excited for his own tour, his social media presence is such a turn off

Well I’m sort of digging myself a grave with this one, but since I haven’t seen a post I can fully agree with, here we go. Disclaimer, I actually study this at uni. I was the Social Media Manager for the planning and putting together of a fashion show, on all platforms. I just handed in last month a 6-months marketing plan that was based around social media promo. So I do have a bit of knowledge in this area. I am by no means an expert, but this is my future field of choice, so I like to think I’m at least educated.

The situation isn’t as black and white as people have put it so far. All I’ve seen is “he’s horrible at engaging with fans” and “he doesn’t own you shit so stop complaining”. The answer is a very big grey area in which Harry’s actual social media presence fits perfectly in my opinion. First of all, there’s two main templates we studied for marketing purposes this year, Gaynor Lea Greenwood’s promotion suggestions (2009) and Burcher (2013)’s Paid, Owned and Earned media concept. Long story short, the first one is your traditional marketing campaign and the second one relies more on social media and advertising on it. Now, I think Harry’s team went for the more traditional approach, and let me explain why.

Harry started distancing himself more and more from twitter and Instagram ever since the hiatus started.Even before, during OTRA and MITAM promo, most of his tweets were promo stuff, lyrics I’m not sure we fully understand even now, charity work, promoting friends or tweeting about holidays/important days or events. His fan interaction has been low for quite a while, and I’m honestly baffled people are acting like this is news. Looking through his Twitter in 2015, there are some tweets to fans, yes, but they’re very sparse.I counted about 12 in 5 months, most of them in September, when Perfect came out, and around the release of MITAM.His tweets were mostly thanks to fans for various awards and nominalisation, promoting the songs/album, some lyrics and, without fail, after every concert he tweeted a thank you for coming.

It felt more personal than what we have now (tho in all honesty, his tour hasn’t started yet and if we eliminate the OTRA tweets it’s already a different story), but Robot Harry has been a thing then, and people were riding along with it instead of condemning it to the extent they do now.But, the thing is, Harry didn’t have the entire burden of engaging with the fanbase like he has now.Louis, Niall and Liam always took turns in taking the lead in replying to fans and interacting with them, which allowed Harry to do his part and everyone was mostly happy.

And yet, I personally don’t feel this frustration many people feel. I think it’s quite interesting actually. A bold move that wouldn’t work for other artist whose career relies on people who live and breathe social media (maybe Beyonce or Adele, but they are in another league). I was very intrigued by Harry’s statement in the Behind the album video, in which he said that there was a time in his life when people knew everything about him, and he didn’t like it.He has been overexposed since 2012, his personal life splashed across tabloids, fake relationship or not.And now he disappeared for a year (and has been retreating into himself for at least 2) and he wrote this mysterious™ album, trying to see if people can listen and understand it without knowing much about the current him. In this context, having an album that surrounds itself in mystery and then doing 4 Q&As on twitter and 3 livestreams sends…extremely contradictory messages. I can, and will fault his team for presenting a dual image of Harry that sometimes makes 0 sense, for handling a lot of things so poorly, and for the entire Carolina mess, but I will say that his social media fits this old school mysterious rockstar image they’re showing of him. I also think his actual reason is very personal and very real, and I respect the fact that he didn’t compromise this choice he made for promo purposes.

His promo relied on more traditional channels. TV and radio appearances, print magazines, and most importantly, the secret gigs. Now, I’m sorry, but I felt entirely more connected to Harry running across London at 8AM in my pyjamas than by any twitter spree he’ll ever do. I never did this before. This reminded me of the stories my dad told me, of queuing up for days in front of the box office so he’d get the tickets when they went on sale. It was very old school and it worked for me. It was a phenomenal experience, something I will never forget. And he did this for us. All profits went to charity, he didn’t do this for money. And while I know this was for a few selected cities and a handful of lucky fans, it was intimate and it was special and I think everyone, regardless if they were there, or vicariously living through pics and videos, felt a connection to Harry. We got emotional on his behalf when he sang with his idol on stage 2 weeks later, you don’t do that for someone you have no connection to.

Now, the actual reason I’m happy with what we’ve got is that it is genuine from my POV. Liam is the perfect candidate for a comparison, since he also took a bit of a break from social media (not as heavy as Harry’s, but he definitely wasn’t as active as Louis or Niall) and his promo is as textbook as it gets. He slowly, but surely increased his activity since January, a few more tweets, a few more pics on Instagram.A big turning point was April when he posted 13 pics on Instagram, compared to 8 in March, 4 in February and 3 in January. His Twitter went through a similar process.Now, the moment he started posting more, I knew his music was gonna be out soon. It’s pure marketing. You start your campaign weeks before the actual launch, it’s only natural. Unless you want to drop it as a surprise, but that’s another discussion. Actually Harry did it too, with the TV ad, but that was ruined by the info getting leaked beforehand and everyone getting pissed off by that so whatevs. Now, Liam is going for the approachable celeb route. Streams, Instagram stories, snapchat, tweeting fans, loads of pics, videos with popular Youtubers. It’s nice and about as well handled as it gets (apart from that weird video release earlier than it should have been and Liam just generally being a bit…odd?off?idk how to explain it, but a lot of people feel the same way from what I’ve seen). It fits with the image Liam is going for, it aims at the right target audience. He’s not trying to enter a new market like Harry is. He’s consolidating his place in the current market from what I’ve seen (and I’ll admit I haven’t followed his promo as closely as Harry’s). Trying to imagine Harry doing this sort of promo doesn’t really work for me.

Niall has been present on and off social media ever since he came back from his trip last year. Literally, if I pull up the calendars people have been making each month, he doesn’t get more than a handful of days without doing something, so it’s unfair to compare him to the others, since he’s always around and posting and doing stuff.

Louis deserves a better team and I won’t have anyone uttering anything else in my presence, and yet somehow, despite Niall’s constant presence and Liam’s textbook engagement, I’ll never feel as connected to them as I feel to Louis. Louis’ tweets are the perfect mixture of absolutely adorable fan service (“our year” 😭😭) and some of the things he’s passionate about (tv shows, fashion, footie/sports). His promo for JHO was….I have no words for it and I’m gonna have a rage fit if I start thinking about it, but his overall persona is charming and endearing when he’s posting things himself. He created a real communication channel between us and him and he knows how to use it when he needs to send a message (warning selfies anyone?Only you?). There’s an actual analysis of Instagram stats that shows he’s the number 1 male account in engagement and overall likes and that doesn’t surprise me one bit. Louis is a smart businessman, he has a loyal fanbase who is here for him through thick and thin.

And on top of everything I said so far, none of them owe us anything outside the promo bubble. Apart from shoots, songs/albums/tours info and official announcements, they do not owe us anything. If they chose to share a picture from their home, that’s their personal space, and while it’s good for PR, amazingly good in a society that thrives from the feeling of knowing everything about everyone (like what’s your fave’s breakfast and how’s their cat is doing), it’s still a part they can choose to keep private and no one should be entitled to ask for more.

Have you seen Adele’s Instagram? It gives you this illusion of closeness to her, with make up free selfies, funny poses and landscape shots. Too bad literally everything is from touring and other official appearances right? There’s one picture of her home, and that’s to celebrate the end of the tour. Harry sort of did the same with the booklet pictures. He allowed you into his personal space in a controlled manner, just like Adele did. Only he did it in a different way. His promo is just different and you have to think a bit outside the box to see that he actually did a lot of things other artists do. Just a bit differently. Was it perfect?Fuck, no. Was it as bad as many people make it look like?Personally, I don’t think so. It was just different and people are entirely justified to see it as a good or a bad thing. I see it mostly as a good thing. Mostly.

harry also

  • lied about how he met the guitarist(said he worked at a pizza shop and that he’d never been in a studio before, when he’s just roommates with harry’s other very famous producer who has worked with celebrities and they were also in a band together for years with picture evidence of them both in a studio)

anonymous asked:

I see everyone shitting on Louis's team about Dan's interview and okay, I get it. They're not entirely innocent, but all of the guys gave him an interview so who knows what dirt he has on them

Its undeniable that DW is one of the pre-eminent print celeb journalists in the UK which tells you how low the bar is set. But he is also in a deep symbiotic relationship with Syco and SJPR - They give him their exclusives; he broadcasts the messages they want out there as ‘news’. Everything Wooton has done to Louis has been at the request of Sony-Syco. Dan does not go off message with them.

 Its also undeniable as far as Im concerned that Louis is at the mercy of Sony-Syco when it comes to his image, and they have nailed him in his closet. The fascinating thing is that we can now see apparent proof that for them, a baby and a rebounding beard aren’t enough. They still feel so threatened by Larry that they planned this - and in my opinion Dan raising Larry was planned, denial or not. We can see Wooton replied to a tweet which asked him to be professional, with an aggressive claim he would ask Louis about Larry on video to shut us up, even though the interview had already been done. That suggests a plan to me - pick a tweet to make that reply to, panic everyone, get more attention and then… EITHER he was bluffing to ‘teach fans a lesson’ = get more clicks, or he did it and we get a planned BS3 of some kind. 

Make no mistake - that Larry question to Louis would NOT be asked by Wooton, without the express permission and collusion of his team. Louis team have to WANT Dan to do this because he would never risk pissing them off. Im taking a pessimistic view of whats going to emerge from the interview because… bitter experience. But I want things to have genuinely changed to Louis benefit. I really really want to be wrong. My crazed hope supplies though, are running very low.

The question is, if this is a denial, why would ‘Syco’ (= Sony HQ) still be desperate to try to throttle Larry, given the absolute LH separation and polarisation of images since the hiatus began? Its not as if it looks like they would care much if Louis ‘being gay’ impacted his success.  We can see how half-hearted and semi-incompetent so many of their efforts regarding his actual career are, compared with labels who are all in for their stars. Are they hoping if we (Larries) go away, they can end the stunts quietly without fingers pointing at them? Are they simply keen to remove Larry from Harry’s image, because Harry IS without question a major Sony priority and has been for some time? 

Its fascinating that Wootton was the one who got Harry’s ‘undefined sexuality’ quote. No demands from Dan to deny Larry from Harry (though Larry is just as much about him). Instead he was given the almost unprecedented experience of Wootton softening a superhet message. Yet with Louis, Syco-Sony’s paid boy Wooton implies he’s aggressively setting him up to be the bad guy, risking alienating the fans he needs as he launches his solo career? There’s a pattern there that is endlessly familiar; Harry is permitted/encouraged to be LGBT friendly while Louis is painted as the one who cant stand gay rumours, which is just heartbreaking. Maybe this is actually going to be a miraculous moment set up to allow Louis to be emollient and diplomatic and peace is declared by Sony on Larry fandom. But if the worst comes to the worst, I just hope that fans see through whats happened and dont blame the victim (Louis) if he really is forced to say things we dont like. One thing I’m confident of - it’s not Louis fault.  Wild speculation, but I wonder if he knew this was coming - hence Amsterdam.

anonymous asked:

oh my GOD that idea that you just mentioned about the fan response??? would literally die for that wtf and tbh i just want to see a lot of jason and whizzer interacting because i Always live for that


  • the media finds out about them before they’re even like officially dating. Somehow one lucky paparazzi person that is on like stealth mode gets a picture of a tender moment when Marvin and Whizzer are out together somewhere. In the picture, Marvin is like brushing an eyelash off of Whizzer’s cheek or holding his hand or doing something really sappy (basically trying to communicate to an emotionally-stunted Whizzer that hey sleeping together is cool and all, but I want to actually date you, you know). Well, the news BLOWS UP with headlines like ‘Whizzer Brown’s Mystery Man’ and ‘Playboy baseball player settling down?’ and everyone scrambles to find out just who Marvin is. Once they find out that Marvin is a divorced dad, news outlets like TMZ are flooded with headlines like (thanks to @a-lesbian-from-next-door-too for this GEM of a headline) WHIZZER BROWN WITH DILF???
  • Whizzer Brown secret boyfriend is the most searched thing on Google that day.
  • All production in the tabloid industries stops as editors bark for their reporters to dig up more on this story. Journalists scramble for any bit of info they can get on Marvin.
  • And here comes disastrously incorrect articles like:
    • Marvin was actually still married when he and Whizzer started “dating.” Whizzer was the cause of his divorce.
    • Marvin is like 15 years older than Whizzer and is basically using Whizzer for his money.
    • Marvin has been Whizzer’s secret boyfriend (HUSBAND???) for over ten years now and it’s been kept well hushed hushed secret bc Whizzer has built a brand out of Gay Baseball Player/Playboy.
    • Jason is Marvin and Whizzer’s adopted child.
    • CONSPIRACY THEORY: Marvin and Whizzer are not actually together at all. Marvin is not even gay! Whizzer just wanted to rebrand himself from “player on and off the field” and so hired Marvin to be his fake boyfriend (pretending to be “settling down”). (this prompts a startled Marvin to exclaim, “How could anyone think I was straight???” to which Whizzer dead-panned responded, “Honey, no self-respecting gay man dresses like that.”
  • Also consider the TMZ panel (also credit to @a-lesbian-from-next-door-too for this exchange, too)
    • Marvin? What kinda name is Marvin?
    • “I know. It’s such an old man’s name!”
    • “It’s like he was born a middle-aged dad, you know?”
    • “Uh, guys, Whizzer is a pretty stupid name, too. When you think about it. I mean, who names their kid Whizzer?”
    • “No one asked you, Brent.”
    • “Yeah, Brent. Shut the fuck up.”
  • Marvin finds out about the news bc he goes to work the next morning and some asshole coworker has taped all the headlines around his desk (the DILF headline is blown up and taped over his entire desk).
  • Marvin is obv pissed and lowkey anxious bc he doesn’t want this sort of attention to negatively affect him or (GOD FORBID) Jason. Whizzer himself is just a little annoyed and sees that Marvin is upset, so he tries to like make the issue go away by tweeting out: “tfw ur out with one of ur booty calls and ppl think that just bc he held ur hand u two are getting married’. And uhh, this makes the media die down but Marvin gets more upset bc hey asshole I think I’m falling in love with you but apparently I’m still just one of your booty calls, huh? And Whizzer gets mad bc Marvin is mad and he just tried to make Marvin less mad, and angst angst angst.
  • When they do get together, Whizzer posts a picture on Instagram of the two of them with the caption ‘tfw you fall in love with one of your booty calls’. And the Internet just kinda explodes.
  • Fans are a little mixed. On one hand, they’re happy that Whizzer seems to be happy. On another, they’re terrified that a relationship will somehow hurt Whizzer’s playing. They then shut the fuck up when Whizzer plays the most vicious game of his entire career and just throws the best pitches and just basically almost single-handedly eviscerates the other team. At the press conference, people ask what’s up with Whizzer’s playing, and one of Whizzer’s team members just sorta smirks and answers for him, “He has a lot of pent up tension and aggression. He hasn’t seen his boyfriend in like a month [bc it’s the peak of the season and they’ve had to move around a lot to different cities and such].“ 
  • Guys guys guys guys, I cannot begin to describe just how i c o n i c Marvin becomes so quickly. 
  • Because once they’re like “official,” Whizzer spams his instagram account with Marvin - Marvin in a new gifted Red Sox jersey while Jason (in his decked out Yankees uniform) glares mockingly at him; at the park during a crisp fall afternoon, Marvin breathless and red-faced and caught mid-laugh; Marvin comically but dead-seriously holding a baseball bat with a stance and grip that makes Whizzer and all baseball fans around the world weep; Marvin Jason and Whizzer, in a cheesy selfie after a really tough game; a picture of Marvin’s back as the man is hunched over an oven (this one has the caption “I love when a man puts the steak in ;) ” ); a particularly artsy one with a black and white filter, with Marvin (asleep, hair mussed, naked but only his bare arms, shoulders, and upper back is not obscured by the white sheets) asleep in their bed. The fans lose their minds over these pictures, along with the little tibits of info/stories that Whizzer shares when prompted about what a dorky/lame/baseball-hating/he-writes-me-poetry-literally-what-a-fucking-nerd that his new boyfriend is. 
  • When tweets and questions about Marvin keep buzzing Whizzer, Whizzer kindly asks (not forces, Jeez, Marv, don’t make it sound like I held a gun to your back) that Marvin get his own instagram/twitter accounts so they can just fawn over Marvin directly and leave Whizzer the hell alone to answer questions about baseball and photography and not about his relationship every fucking five minutes
  • This turns out to be a mistake. Marvin amasses ten thousand followers in six months. The guy barely even posts about Whizzer himself. He posts about broadway reviews and retweets funny cat pictures and every once in awhile, he posts partiuclarly needling things like how chess is better than baseball and he tags and @’s Whizzer in all of them. And everyone??? Loves it??? Whizzer is a little jealous at how people fawn over Marvin?? Like where’s some Whizzer love??? Whizzer is still the twunk that everyone loves, right???
  • Marvin is slowly accepted by the baseball wives. They’re catty and cliquish and they make Marvin’s life a living hell those first few months, but when Marvin does not take their shit and keeps pushing back, they grow to a mutual understanding that soon turns into begrudged respect that eventually turns into tentative friendship that eventually much much later turns into “if you dare utter one mean word or look at Marvin the wrong way, I will slit your throat with my sharpened, manicured, pastel pink-painted nails.” Whizzer shares one picture on his insta of Marvin with the baseball wives, with a glass of champagne in his hand and looking like he’s talking shit and the other baseball wives are laughing and eating this shit up, and he captions it: I think my boyfriend joined a cult.
  • The media as a whole leaves the two alone after they turn out to be just a regular couple and not that interesting?? EXCEPT EXCEPT EXCEPT (see next bullet point)
  • Okay, so Marvin hates baseball, right? This is established. This is well known. This is Fact. Well, after they become like “official” and the media now knows who Marvin is, news outlets start to attack him/make fun of him/crucify him for looking bored at Whizzer’s baseball games. Like he’ll have his phone out or he’ll have his chin propped up with his hand as if trying to combat sleepiness and sometimes he brings like a magazine to read and he always has that bored, vaguely pained “I do not want to be here right now” look on his face. And any time that the Red Sox makes a good play or gets a homerun, it’s clear that he’s been spacing out bc whenever the people around him start cheering, he likes jumps and does that weak, wide-eyed “Idk what just happened and i kinda want death right now but I am being supportive” clap (one time, he zoned out and Whizzer’s opposing team got a homerun, and Marvin just started meekly clapping bc he heard the crowd doing it and ESPN and TMZ and all the news outlets had a field day of making fun of him).
  • And the media??? is like “why are you not supporting your partner? You embarrass him by looking so bored. Can’t you learn to love the sport if you love him??” and being really bitchy about it. And Whizzer gets pissed and so goes on air during a press conference - when some smart-ass reporter tries to make a barb about Marvin looking bored and in pain - and says really bitchily, “Guys, Marvin just doesn’t like baseball, okay? Yeah, that makes him an idiot - because baseball is incredible - but it doesn’t make him a bad partner. I don’t expect him to love the things that I love. I like that we’re different, you know? That makes him less boring. Like, he goes to my games even though he hates baseball. That is being supportive. Like fucking hell, guys, I’m with him because he makes me laugh and has a great ass - not because he’s some super baseball fan.” CUE MIC DROP.
  • And yeah, there are homophobic reactions to the relationship. Facebook groups dedicated to it. Marvin gets hate mail and one time got like yelled at on the street. Some of the media’s stories are overtly homophobic and overly crass. It’s 2017, sure, but there are still idiots out there.
  • Marvin and Whizzer don’t let the attention - good or bad - get to them. They just keep being in love and posting overly sappy instagram posts about their anniversaries and poking fun at each other on twitter and the attention never breaks them.

I will posts Jason specific headcanons later but like dang, this took a lot out of me bc I have a lot of FEELINGS and if you have more headcanons about this topic, reblog and add your own bc I’m curious how you feel the media/fans would take this.

gonna need to hear Accent Rant Part II: Featuring** Draco Malfoy (**STARRING)


so you know whenever you watch a film set in England any time between the 1880s and the 1930s there’s always that one posh cock who says something rude and classist and demoralising to The Hero™ while wearing a dinner jacket and everyone TITTERS into their champagne flutes and you know, as you stare murderously at his perfectly parted hair, that he’s going to get his Comeuppance SOMEHOW, even if you have to drag YOURSELF through the celluloid to PUNCH HIM ON HIS ARISTOCRATIC NOSE?

Draco Malfoy sounds like that guy. 

just for example: Benedict ‘bite it… you have to bite it’ Cumberbatch in Atonement, Rupert Everett in pretty much anything, Jude Law as Bosie in Wilde, Achievable Goals Please Jeff in Pride, the classically handsome but predictably shitty one in Kingsman: The Secret Service, Colin Firth in the 1995 Pride and Prejudice (some of these examples don’t fit the bill re: horrid rich dude in a movie, but all of them fit the bill re: horrid rich accent in a movie, so whatever, sorry about it, Colin), every single person in The Riot Club, Jason Isaacs in Peter Pan, JASON ISAACS IN HARRY POTTER, which I will bring up again IN A JIFFY, any Conservative politician in any film – not to mention a great swathe of Tory politicians in real life, but ESPECIALLY Boris Johnson. 

actually, Boris Johnson is probably the best example, mainly for entertaining Parallel Life reasons (PLUS someone actually wrote him as Draco’s uncle/Minister for Magic in a fic once, which I would have found absolutely hilarious if I hadn’t read it the week after Brexit) – him or David Cameron, though I do like to think that Draco Malfoy is more of an Alarmingly Blond, Deceptively Intelligent Career Politician Cultivates Reputation As Eccentric sort of person than a Fucks Dead Pig Mouths sort of person, but then Boris Johnson is at least partly responsible for Brexit, so which is worse, really?

A N Y W A Y, if Draco Malfoy wasn’t a wizard, he’d have gone to Eton, gone to Oxbridge, and then taken up his father’s seat in the House of Lords because you can fucking bet the Muggle Malfoys would be hereditary peers or whatever. he would have only shown up for the votes on, like, rich people taxes, and spent the rest of his time as a member of the Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual and Temporal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland fucking about and driving all the Lib Dems absolutely crackers.*

*can I just say right now that my political knowledge is extremely lacking, so if this paragraph reads like gobbledegook that’s because it probs is. 

in fact, all the shit I said about Justin Finch-Fletchley’s non-magic AU life? that would be Draco Malfoy’s non-magic AU life, except, unlike Justin, the magical version of Draco Malfoy’s life doesn’t have him ironically located at the bottom of the wizarding and wizard high school hierarchy. Draco Malfoy is the direct wizarding equivalent of Justin Finch-Fletchley’s non-magic AU life. like, canonically. the Malfoys are so rich they don’t work, they have a big, old mansion in Wiltshire, they’re OBSESSED with their own ancestry, and Lucius Malfoy throws money at the government and subsequently has the Minister’s ear despite a) not working at the Ministry, b) having little-to-no background in politics at all, and c) being a pretty much proven baddy. 

and, I mean, if Draco Malfoy isn’t the sort of person who would join a prestigious university drinking club whose Join Our Prestigious University Drinking Club hazing involves burning a £50 note in front of a homeless person, then who would? The Bullingdon Club is basically Young Death Eaters Assoc. (for the record, Draco is the one who’d write the tell-all memoir years later when all his old club chums are in positions of power in the government, Theodore Nott would be the one who rattled a dead pig and then became Prime Minister. I would also like to issue an apology for ever implying that Justin Finch-Fletchley would stoop so low as to shag deceased livestock. he seems like a nice enough chap.) 

anyway. Draco Malfoy is these levels of posh, is what I’m saying. Eton-Oxbridge-Westminster posh. Monty Python’s Upper Class Twit of the Year posh. ALSO, all of this + unnaturally blond hair Draco Malfoy is Magic Boris Johnson. (or maybe Lucius Malfoy is Magic Boris Johnson, in which case Voldemort is Nigel Farage and the war is Brexit. I’m living an AU where Harry decided to stay dead and Voldemort won. ha ha.) 

so yes, posh voice like Boris Johnson.

which begs the question: in a film series in which a good 90% of the characters speak Received Pronunciation English with a Definitive Upper Class Lilt regardless of how they should sound according to the book or, like, the laws of school catchment areas, WHY does DRACO MALFOY not sound POSH ENOUGH? HOW DID THEY MANAGE TO DROP THE BALL ON THIS??? why does Hermione Granger, muggleborn daughter of – I assume – middle class dentists, sound like the fourth Crawley sister, while Draco ‘my father bought seven state-of-the-art, outrageously expensive broomsticks just so I, a 12-year-old, would be accepted onto my school house team’ Malfoy sounds like he’s hanging out in the food court of the Croydon Ikea?

don’t get me wrong, I love Tom Felton. Young Me was utterly enamoured by the slicked back hair and the smirking, and he will always have a place in my heart for being so delighted by Drarry and taking the Lauren Lopez thing so fantastically and for reblogging that gay wizard app tweet. BUT DRACO MALFOY ISN’T POSH ENOUGH. NONE OF THE YOUNG SLYTHERIN DEATH EATER SPAWN, I.E. FUTURE BULLINGDON CLUB WANKERS, ARE POSH ENOUGH. IT IS INCENSING. (I have theories about why, and by ‘theories’ I mean one single theory which is absolutely correct, to do with accent and class and stereotyping and blah blah not Harry Potter-related things blah.) 

at least they managed it for Lucius. Jason Isaac’s intense, hissy poshness gives me LIFE. every time he says anything CUTTING (or what is considered cutting by these PG films) I’m low key like ‘…yesss.’ there’s no way that a snakes-head-cane-concealing-weapon-wielding, ponytailed, hanging-out-at-Downing-Street-whispering-things-to-the-PM-even-though-I’m-independently-wealthy-and-have-no-business-here MOTHERFUCKER would let his ONLY SON AND HEIR sound like anything less than someone who’d been frogmarched to young adulthood by twelve governesses with a silver spoon lodged firmly in every orifice and given elocution lessons from BIRTH. I mean

the only person – THE ONLY PERSON – in the Slytherin Squad who doesn’t let me down is THE OG PANSY PARKO in Prisoner of Azkaban. she has one line and she absolutely nails it. the upper-class drawl. the tone of utter boredom. the way she makes ‘Draco’ seem like a perfectly natural name the way few of the other characters manage. I can hear it, in my head, clear as a bell, like she’s right here in my room with me. “Does it hurt terribly, Draco?” incredible. living art. give Genevieve Gaunt and her strangely on-point name a fucking Oscar. she is the posh we need to see in Slytherin house! the posh to which all others should aspire!! why wasn’t Genevieve Gaunt and her all-girls-independent-boarding-school-sexy-ambiguously-gay-bully drawl cast as Draco Malfoy?!?!?!

it’s only now that I’ve gotten to the end of this long, Boris Johnson-centric tirade on Draco Malfoy’s poshness that I’ve realised his TRUE Muggle equivalent is Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh: incredibly posh, tactful as a brick, quite racist, which you can blame on upbringing, and someone somewhere will eventually start a religious sect believing he’s a divine being. I mean… it’s obvious. Prince Draco. Draco Malfoybatten. it’s all making SENSE!

for the record: Sirius Black also has this accent. carry on.

Secret Idol Relationship With Dawon

-loves you way too much you don’t even know. You guys are supposed to keep it lowkey but the way he stares at you from across the stage during music show endings/stares at you performing/looks at you when you pass by like even if people don’t know your dating, fans know ‘oh man dawon has it bad for her. he’s definitely crushing hard’. You’d have to tell him later when you’re alone like ‘babe ik you love me and all but steer your eyeballs away yeah?’ and his reply every time would be like ‘do i? i didn’t even realize,I guess I can’t help it, Im just so happy whenever i see you’ with a huge cheesy grin on his face as he steps slides his hands around your waist and alas, the staring problem never gets solved ever.

-You two have signals for each-other when on stage and jokes way too much- you warn him he can get the both of you caught if he keeps acting without thinking for ex. one time you joked on a radio show that you like guys who push their hair back and wiggle their eyebrows and he literally did that shit for a few seconds during performance a week after, or literally tells the host on weekly idol that his favorite group is your group and that he’s a big fan of you. For sure everyone and thier moms now knows that he has a crush on you now. Everyone would be like dawon is a  y/n’s fanboy-earning you alot of anti fans now so he had to shutup about you for a few months but either way he will always be known as your fanboy to the point where you guys got casted to be mc’s together for music core and dawons HIGHKEY SUPER HAPPY cuz now he can see his girlfriend for a good hour a day per week plus rehearsals before the show as well leaving you two to be in a room alone to yourselves where you know his skin ship will be off the roof. “we have 10 mins quick sit on my lap!” also does neck kisses and sudden smooches alot like chill dawon we gotta go through the script. Is super satisfied he gets to flirt since you two are the mc show couple because of the script and sometimes he does ad-lib and the staff is just like “we never told him to tell her she looked super sexy today?” and your just like omg dawon cut that out.

-During Isac, Fans sees him staring at you from like across the field like damn dawon you got a staring problem. Won’t come up and talk to you but other idols will push him towards you or mention you alot and he will just grin like ‘its fine. im good here.’ but once he sees a guy idol come to talk to you, he’ll forget about ISAC as a whole who needs to be productive anyways, he’s just stressing out on why there are so many guys on your team. You’d have to console him later when you meet up but a kiss is all it takes to get him happy again.

-Tweets hidden messages on twitter or would just caption a selfie like “missing you” while he’s sitting in bed with a toy plushie on his head (the one you bought him). Often post twitter videos of him eating the foods you like and caption it with a “Hopefully you’re eating well too”. Gets irritated when he hasn’t seen you for a long time so he calls you and tells you at like 4am he will be at the han river. It bothers him to haven’t see you for so long so when you do arrive, he will just bring you quickly for a hug as he pours out his feelings for the day. Eventually, out of all the members he will most likely want to reveal the relationship sooner or later so at that point where he’s upset from not being able to see you, he will sit you down and discuss about the decision to reveal. He will take responsibility for the hate and consequences but as long as he’s able to tell the world he loves you, he will do anything but because everyone knows he likes you, when you do people are like we knew it whats new lol.

Bad Bob drops his gloves and takes on the press Part 2: Enter, George & Alicia

Well that first part certainly got more attention than I expected! I mean, I’m delighted, but wow!

So here we have the aftermath of Bob’s big interview. Buckle up, everyone, we’re heading to twitter!

(this somehow turned out longer than part 1)

  • The other Falconers are some of the first to respond. Jack is the baby of the team, even if he isn’t technically the youngest. They Adore Him.
  • Guy: “It’s amazing that the press thinks this is acceptable to do to a kid.”
  • Marty: “Bob’s story is haunting. if it were my kid, I’d be angry, too. Jack is a great player and a great person. He doesn’t deserve that treatment”
  • Tater: “my heart breaks for Zimbonni and his family. Jack is good friend and his Bitty Baker is as well.”
  • (this is actually the most pleasant of all his tweets. the rest were mostly him cussing out the press in both English and Russian)
  • (he gets really creative with the character limit, let me tell you)
  • (there may be a few “fuck you” poems in there. gotta love Tater)

The Bet

The Bet

It was a couple of hours before the Super Bowl and Billie felt like she was running around like a chicken with her head cut off. She and Chris had arrived in Houston a few days ago and it was hard for her to keep up with his manic energy. Chris was on cloud nine because his precious Patriots were on the verge of winning their fifth championship ring. 

And since they didn’t bring the baby that weekend, he wanted to party his ass off. But Billie felt like a third wheel because he was spending most of his time with his brother Scott and last night he went out with Jeremy Renner to the Super Bowl pre-show concert. But as luck would have it, he had also sprung for her parents to join them for the big game. Yet when she picked them up from the airport, she hated that her mom was bombarding her with questions about the baby. And she explained that Leila was better off with Chris’s family so they wouldn’t screw up her sleep schedule.

Every few weeks since the nightmare of Trump started have been weeks like this, weeks where the hits just keep coming and you just can barely keep but with all the horror more for my own sanity than anything I just want to expel all the shit that has happen in the last week(ish)

1. Trump goes to war with the FNL and most of professional sports. I don’t follow sports, they hold no interest for me, but I understand and respect that the FNL is like a cultural powerhouse in America. So the idea that a President would attack them is… crazy right, like a thing I never imagined would happen, but it did. Trump and Steve Mnuchin making creepy deeply racist statements that basically the rich white people who own FNL teams should have the right to control what they’re overwhelmingly black players have to say. General creepy neo-fascist flag worship porn, and in the mix the whole BLM message of the kneel got lost in some FNL unity BS as owners tried to co-op it

2. While Trump was busy being racist against black football (and Basketball) players, he was ignoring an island of (AMERICAN) hispanics. It wasn’t till he got called out on it that Trump figured out where Puerto Rico, and stopped there. He got into a Twitter battle with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz who has been working her ass off and has been a total hero through this whole thing. But Trump hates women, and people of color and women of color set him off so victim blaming, implying that we’re not really gonna rebuild Puerto Rico, switching between claiming everything is great and blaming any problems on Puerto Rico (or the fact it’s an island) meanwhile the response is still lagging behind what team Obama did in Haiti in 2010, and seems to only be doing what outside politicians (John McCain, Hillary Clinton) tweet at them days too late

3. Roy fucking Moore happened, Roy Moore is a crazy person totally unqualified for public life that wants to make being gay illegal and put America under biblical law, he’s been impeached from side wide office in Alabama twice now (both times for trying to defy the US Supreme Court) and this asshole won the Senate Primary in Alabama. Alabama being Alabama Moore is the odds on favorite to become a US Senator 

4. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Prince spent over 400,000 dollars for domestic flights on private jets, including a $25,000 flight from DC to Philadelphia….. which is 2 hours away by car from DC…. Prince also used military transport for his overseas travel. Which is something that is reserved as a rule for people who need 24/7 secure communications with the President, needless to say the HHS Secretary isn’t one of those people. So Price’s transport in 8 months was close to a million dollars. At the same time Prince has been busily telling everyone how we need DEEP cuts to medicaid because there just isn’t enough money. All this is bad enough, but it seems MANY people on team Trump have been using private jets on government dime. Oh also EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt spent 25,000 dollars to build himself a private sound proof room that no one knows what he’ll use that for since the EPA already had a secure room for reading classified information? oh also he has a $800,000 a year around the clock security detail like the President, which no one else in the cabinet has oh also he likes private jets too. 

5. Catalonia tried to have a referendum on independence. Spanish courts ruled this illegal but that doesn’t really explain why the Spanish government unleashed federal police into the streets of Catalonia. Police broke down the doors of polling stations, dragged people out by their hair, stole ballot boxes, charged crowds of voters swinging batons and firing rubber bullets. By the end of the day over 800 people had been injured by police. Catalonian President Carles Puigdemont said that Catalonia had “won the right to statehood” meanwhile the Spanish government under Mariano Rajoy have gone full 1984 and declared no vote happened at all, and also that their reaction was totally fair, while also refusing to negotiate with the Catalonian government, I don’t know what happens next but it looks scary and set for violence in the coming week.

6. Las Vegas shooting, the new “deadliest shooting in American history” coming 16 months after the last deadliest shooting. as of right now it’s 59 dead and many more hurt, a man with dozens of guns and hundreds of rounds of ammo. The story feels like one we’ve heard before. It’s tiring to be locked into an never ending cycle of mass shooter gun violence, where the reaction to even talking about guns is to be violently shut down by people, I have no doubt the very fact I listed this will get this post hate reblogged at some point. Trump’s statement on the shooting said nothing about guns, shocker. I don’t think it’s really controversial to say that countries with fewer guns have fewer gun deaths, you get fewer guns through gun control, logical. There’s a river of blood from guns in America, but we don’t seem to give a fuck. That’s just depressing, it’s depressing to see stuff like this and know that it’ll happen again because we don’t care to stop it. 

The 1975 are fucking up...

It’s breaking my heart to see the tweets and posts from people I follow dragging the band and saying their feelings towards the band and their music is changing because of the seriously mishandled series of events that have occurred this week.

I’m an American. So this hasn’t affected me like it has a lot of you but that doesn’t mean I don’t get it and I’m not mad for you.

First, the pop up stores, while a wonderful idea, ended up being divisive and total bull shit. Not all merch (like the jackets) being available in all the stores created a sense of elitism and unfairness and upset a lot of people. The Loving Someone hoodie was a beautiful idea….but the LGBTQ community didn’t benefit from it’s sale, a bunch of het cis males did. And I get the anger there. They threw it together too fast, with little thought and it ended up making them look like they just wanted more of our money. When in reality, I truly feel like they try and keep putting things out for us because they want us to constantly feel rewarded by them. Not realizing that we’d much rather them take their time to really come up with a fair and meaningful product or idea then to just keep throwing out these half thought out and executed plans that end up disappointing more than exciting. It’s not that hard, have a limited number of jackets? Then spread them out amongst the stores. Don’t put them ALL in the London pop up and not send any anywhere else. That’s crap and poor planning.

The Christmas song being hyped was a big mistake. They shouldn’t have said a word about that unless it was finished. The She’s American video being hyped, and even snippets released, but all we got was a tweet reply to someone from Jamie that it wasn’t going to be released with no explanation. Same with the Christmas song, no explanation. Then Euro tour cancelled with a bull shit half assed apology and explanation that everyone saw right through. And now the Loving Someone video that could have been something really meaningful and wonderful….and it’s just the O2 Performance we’ve all already seen. You’re disappointed. I’m disappointed.

But here’s things we have to remember…

The band themselves DO NOT plan their schedule. Matty half the time doesn’t know where the fuck he’s going to be the next day. They rely on Jamie for this massively. He hasn’t just failed us with this. He’s failed the band. He was stupid and threw together tours without thinking because they think they have to constantly keep going. If he’d stopped for a minute to look at their ticket sales history, and sales numbers in the Euro places they were going to then he would have KNOWN that trying to book them in arenas wasn’t going to make them any profit and they’d probably end up owing venues, promoters etc money to make up for the poor sales. He would have KNOWN what they could sell there and what they couldn’t. It’s his job to know that. He also, would have seen that it falls during awards season….and if he had even the slightest feeling like they were going to be nominated for awards, then he shouldn’t have booked them anywhere. The entire Euro tour was poorly thought out and executed and is a HUGE embarrassment and mistake on Jamie’s end. Not the bands. Yes, the band probably had final say when it came to officially cancelling but Jamie didn’t really put them in a position where they could say anything other than to cancel. The announcement of the US tour not even an hour later was extremely bad planning. The rescheduled dates being nearly 6 months later was extremely bad planning. Jamie saying it’s The Brits but then rescheduling them in much smaller venues was honestly, just taking the fans for idiots and like they wouldn’t notice. Just because the majority of the fanbase is teenagers doesn’t mean they’re stupid.

I know you feel like the bands social media is almost all promo but at this point those tweets and IG posts are not coming from them but from their team. The guys aren’t very active on their social medias in general so that’s why it looks like that. Yes it’s annoying….but it’s also their jobs. If they don’t promote themselves who will? I think it’s made into a bigger deal than it should be.

The Loving Someone video was just the icing on the already disappointing cake this week has been. It’s been hyped and promised for weeks and could have really been a beautiful and moving outlet for them to really express how meaningful that song is to a lot of people. What we got was a performance video we’ve all already seen. It’s a missed opportunity and a big fail. I don’t know if they didn’t have the time or the budget to make an actual video. I don’t know. I just know it was a massive disappointment on top of a string of disappointments.

Jamie isn’t qualified to handle a band with this large of a fanbase and this serious of a schedule. He doesn’t need to go, because he truly does love this band. But they need a PR team and Jamie needs to be under the umbrella of a bigger management team that can advise him and take over when necessary. Because his massive mistakes and half-assed thinking is greatly affecting the fanbase and the reputation this band has worked tirelessly to build.

This is where I have to be a “Matty stan” and defend some things because I’m seeing a lot of people coming for Matty and saying he doesn’t care about the fans and he’s just money hungry. Saying he shreds fans who get tattoos or travel to see them etc. We all know how Matty has ALWAYS been. If he wouldn’t do it, he doesn’t get it. He’s always thought his fans were a bunch of weirdos but he’s never stopped appreciating and loving them. He wouldn’t get a tattoo for his favorite band so he doesn’t get why anyone else would. He wouldn’t travel across the world for a concert so he doesn’t get why anyone else would. It also stems from Matty’s DEEP self-loathing and wondering how the hell people care this much. But he has never stopped caring for all of us and I can’t sit here and watch people say he has. He cares almost too much at times to the point where it’s affected his health. Look at the way he looks at you when he’s on that stage. Look at the way he speaks to you and connects with you. Yes, he’s created a boundary between him and fans lately but he HAD to. He was giving too much and it resulted in him having nothing left to give to even himself. Artists HAVE to create boundaries between themselves and fans otherwise they’re going to burn out. You have to accept that. When he’s been tweeted about ridiculous pricing on merch, has he not then taken care of it so that the prices are lower the next shows? Has he not made sure to give extremely intimate moments to fans he knows have given so much to this band? He loves us too much most of the time. We are so lucky to have a front man who connects with his fans the way he does. Matty can’t be fake to save is life so when he thinks something is strange, he says it. He’s not trying to shame you…he just doesn’t get why people do it. But he doesn’t have to.

Last, try and remember what is the bands fault and what is their managements fault and don’t come for the band over things like their schedule and shit Jamie has said and done that have fallen apart. Hopefully lessons have been learned from this huge mistake and it’s never made again. It makes sense it’s left a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouths. I’m sure the band isn’t happy about all this either. Sometimes shit happens and there has to be some room for error. They’re not always going to be perfect but they work SO hard. They tour more than any band I’ve ever seen because they love us and want to be in rooms with us. If they didn’t love us, they wouldn’t do that.

Be mad. Be sad. Be disappointed. Let Jamie and Dirty Hit know how you feel. But don’t forget how much THE BAND loves us.

okay hear me out: Neil as underwear model like

  • at some point he’s in a team that has a publicity deal with idk Nike and they have to wear Nike shoes
  • and Neil is pretty chill with that so when another clothing brand is like “hey we want u for publicity” he agrees

“Love…For Better or Worse” …. Pt. 3

After I revealed that Moses and I are trying to have a baby, my friendship with Levi quickly dissolved. I thought that sharing the news with him and Dana would be for the best and give me the feeling of support I needed from my closest friends. Humph unfortunately, I found out the hard way that doing that shit would only lead to bigger issues. While Dana was still on the fence about our decision, she continued to stand by me. Once she gave her “two cents”, she let it go and said she had my back no matter what. Levi, on the other hand, lost his mothafuckin mind. When I came into work that Monday, his extra ass abrasively approached me with more of BS, trying to get me to change my mind. This went on for the rest of the week and progressively got worse each day that passed. He wouldn’t let that shit go, even after I asked him to drop it several times, and continued to make working with him virtually impossible. By the end of the week I had enough and told him that if he didn’t stop, I would have to put him on leave, (paid of course), until he either got it together or found another studio. He felt as though I crossed the line giving him an ultimatum and decided to quit. At first, guilt set in and even though he was clearly in the wrong, I felt terrible. We were friends for years and for shit to end the way it did, bothered me to no end. As much as this situation hurt, I couldn’t let it bring me down.

I landed an appearance on a popular modeling show for one episode as a stylist and guest judge. Moses and his old assistant Shea, who is now working for him again, came with me to Bridgeport. These past few days have been heaven thanks to Moses. Enjoying my time out here with him made me forget all about Levi and Nica’s phony asses.This trip was beyond perfect. I nailed my appearance on set today and even booked two of their supermodel hosts for major red carpet events. I was feeling great and couldn’t wait to share everything with my man. I practically ran in our suite, taking off my jacket and heels, and hurried into the kitchen where I figured he would be. He was there, looking pissed as shit though, accompanied by a worried Shea and a open bottle of Hennessy.

Seventeen Diamond Edge NYC: An Experience

I JUST got back from what has been probably, one of the most memorable experiences of my stay here in New York City. I’m going to try and crunch out some highlights, and save it away for later so I can come back and read this post and remember what exactly went down. This will be a long post. Also swearing. Baby Carats not allowed.

anonymous asked:

i have a question about the snapchat kim k thing. So she knew about the fame line but kind of gave hints that she was uncomfortable with it? and then didn't hear the bitch line? Bc i heard it was that once she heard the bitch line, she realized the offensive tone he meant and made the speech at the grammys. is that correct?

i am answering this with a timeline of events for clarification but have no desire to get into a discussion about it again or who said what. I stand by my previous opinion that the entire situation really hurt taylor, that kim and KW were shady af, that i bet taylor wishes she never took KWs call or said another word about any of it, in any fashion, after the song came out, and that is all i have to say. 

here is the timeline as i know it:

eddie is horribly abusive and y’all need to be aware of him

i really did not want to have to resort to this. i fully intended to not call eddie out and just let this die off. since it hasn’t, multiple friends have convinced me to come forward with the abuse, stalking, harassment, manipulation, gaslighting, misgendering, etc i have been subjected to at the hands of eddie over the past week+. i haven’t used tumblr in… ages, so i’ve completely forgotten how to use coding in tumblr posts. sorry in advance for that. this is going to be both a call out and a “hey, this is what really went down” type of thing.

before i hop into covering the hot garbage that has been happening, here’s is where to find eddie. i fully encourage everyone to block him and warn others. he has been getting away with abusing people for years.

his twitter:

his horror blog:

if anyone knows the url for his main blog, please let me know.

update: been told his main blog is gluskin. i have not confirmed it for myself because i simply want nothing to do with eddie.

this is going to be long, sorry. tw for… pretty much everything. reblogs are encouraged and appreciated. let’s expose this abuser before he can abuse anyone else.

Becoming Elite 1/?

Pairings: Past Seth Rollins/Dean Ambrose. Future Seth Rollins/Kenny Omega.

Rating: T for right now. 

Before I say anything else this is all @toosweetme’s fault. Blame her. This is what happens when her Kenny and Seth headcanons swirl around in my head while I’m sleeping. I wake up with this in my head.

Tag Squad:

@smolsassynalilsmartassy, @theworldiscolorful @panda-girl1999 @panic-angel3314  

If you want to be added to my tag list just tell me.

Even after winning the Raw Tag Team Championships with Dean, Seth still feels empty. But the imminent arrival of some of his friends is about to not only change things for him but for the entire WWE. 

Seth Rollins was hiding. He didn’t know why but he was. He was laying on top of one of WWE’s 18 wheelers in the parking lot of the Barclays Center.

He’d just won the Raw Tag Team Championship with Dean at SummerSlam and everyone had immediately swept Dean away to celebrate him becoming the youngest grand slam champion in WWE history.

Despite his change of heart and attitude Seth still wasn’t exactly the most liked person in the WWE. His reign of terror as the Authority’s golden child still left a sour taste in his fellow superstars mouths.

Sometimes he thought that it would never change no matter how much he’d changed or how much good he did from here on out he would never wipe all the bad in his ledger away.

He still hated himself for being weak, for falling for Hunter and Stephanie’s bullshit lies. He’d lost everything. Some were things that he could never get back. No matter what happened from here on out everyone would always look at him and wonder if he was about to stick a knife in their back.

Sometimes he thought about leaving the WWE and going back to the indies. He missed it sometimes for so many reasons. He missed being able to be himself in the ring, he missed flying so much switching to a more ground based style was slowly killing his spirit. He missed his fucking finisher. He hated the bullshit version of Omega’s V-Trigger that he was currently doing and it didn’t help at all that Kenny wasn’t exactly amused with him over it.

Of course, Kenny had to make that known in the most Kenny way possible with that DM fuckery. Kenny was one of his best friends but their friendship had been built on friendly rivalry and jealousy and sometimes they fell back into that pattern of one upmanship so as soon as that tweet happen Seth had become determined to do that fucking knee better.

He knew he’d never do it as good or better than Kenny considering it had been one of his finishers for years but at least he could make it not look like shit. Honestly, he just wanted to go back to using the Curb Stomp or he wished he could use God’s Last Gift.

He wondered if anyone would come looking for him or even noticed he was missing. Seth looked over at the red and silver title belt lying next to him. It still didn’t seem real at all. He was Raw Tag Team Champions with his ex-boyfriend who up until about a week ago hated his fucking guts. Seth jolted as One Winged Angel filled the air.

Seth dug in his jeans for his phone and answered it. “Shouldn’t you be sleeping, Kenneth?” “Aww Sethie do you think I’d miss watching you win a title for the first time since you came back from the knee?” drawled the voice of one Kenny Omega. “How’d you know I’d win?” Seth replied “You and Ambrose are unstoppable when you are on the same page. Everyone knows that. But for someone who just won a title at the second biggest PPV in their company you sound kind of down, my friend” Kenny said.

 “Everyone is partying and celebrating with Dean. He’s everyone’s friend. No one gives a shit about me as usual.” “Seth Colby Rollins what the hell?” said Kenny. “You really think that?” “No one in WWE gives two shits about me unless I’m with Dean. Not the other superstars, not the WWE Universe, no one.“

 "Well, I have some news that might change your mind Sethie.”

“Yeah, what’s that?”

 "I’m so fucking sick of being New Japan’s token gaijin. I’m just there to bring in the foreign viewers and I don’t want to do it anymore.“

 "Kenny….what the fuck are you saying?” Seth said sitting up.

 "I’m saying that WWE bought out my New Japan contract. As well as the ROH and New Japan contracts of Marty and The Bucks. The Elite are coming to take over WWE.“
