jesse james days

This is taken from New Girl. Completely. Well, not the convos. Maybe inspired is a better word because I changed the situation a bit, too. @avadean-kedavra thank you for introducing me to New Girl, I already messaged you in all caps about this. Also it is short but ever since I watched this episode all I could think about was writing. Oh and this is an AU. Sorry, I ramble a lot.


KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS!

James tried to open the wooden door that was locked from the other side as his friends cheered on for them to kiss. This wasn’t how he planned tonight would go but then again, he shouldn’t have tried to trick Remus and Sirius into playing this idiotic game while they were drunk.

“I told you not to do a two!” shouted James, thee door wasn’t budging at all and he was getting frustrated, there was no way he was kissing Evans right now.

“You told me to do a two,” shot back Lily her green eyes burning holes in James’ skin. She had a bra and a tutu on for some reason and was walking up and down.

KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS!

“Shut the fuck up and let us out now Padfoot.”

“Yeah, no fucking way Prongs,” replied Sirius from the other side. “Just kiss and we’ll let you out.”

“It’s simple really,” added Remus and he kept on chanting.

“Let’s just kiss and get it over with,” suggested Lily pushing a lock of her hair behind her ear. “Let’s french it out a little bit.”

“Okay,” said James as he let out a sigh. “But stop calling it that.”

They walked to each other and just stood like that for a good while trying to fathom the fact that they were about to kiss each other. They had been roommates for what, two years now? How did they end up like this?

“Okay, we are doing this.”

“Are you a tonguer?” asked James after a brief pause.

“Am I a what?” 

“I wouldn’t want to– you know do something you are not comfortable with.”

“Just.. do it,” nagged Lily with a lengthy eye roll.

James put his hands on Lily’s cheeks and gathered the courage to do this. This was the only way out of this hell hole. He leaned in..

Nope,” backed out Lily. “Nope, no can do. I can’t do this. Your face–”

“What’s wrong with my face?”

“You do this weird face.”

“Okay, I will try something else,” he snapped. “Just stop interrupting it.”

James didn’t know what was wrong with his face, for all he know he was as good as it comes but apparently Ms. Evans thought there was something wrong. As if she was the prettiest girl with her green eyes and red hair.. 

KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS!

James leaned in once more, not knowing what to do with his face, he straight up smiled and Lily backed out once more.

“You can’t kiss me with your teeth, you know?”

“Okay, I’m done.”

“Just kiss me.”

“No.”

“Just do it, what’s the big deal?”

“I can’t.”

“James,” she began sounding very impatient. “Kiss me so we can get out.”

“Not like this!” he yelled finally. 

What?” whispered Lily in response. 

James was asking himself the same question, where did that come from? He didn’t like Lily, they were buddies, they were bud-buds, she was his best mate or something. He started frantically walking up and down the room trying to figure out a way out of this.

“What does that mean?” repeated Lily as she watched him walked around the room like he had lost him mind finally. 

There was a way out of this, just one way out so he walked to the closest window and climbed.

“What are you doing?” screamed Lily.

“I’m getting some air,” he replied shouting. He was standing at the edge of the window and he realised the stupidity of what he had done when it was too late. He started walking towards the living room window holding onto anything he could find so that he wouldn’t fall down and die because he couldn’t keep his mouth shut. Yes, he was out of the room but he was about the fall four stories down.

This was all compliant with his new strategy in the loft, avoid Lily Evans at all costs, even if it means you’ll fall to your death.


What the hell does that mean?

Lily had been tossing and turning in his bed for a good while and she was bored of it and she decided to go out to get some water or wash her face to forget what James had said.

James Potter with his stupid hair and stupid gorgeous body. No. They were best friends, they had always been best friends. She was there for him, he was there for her, that was the extent of their relationship.

She got out of the bed and opened her door to one James Potter standing right in front of him. 

“I was just–”

“I just want to get some water Potter,” she interrupted.

“I wasn’t doing anything,” he said hastily.

“I know it was just in the heat of the moment,” she reassured even though she didn’t believe that one bit. “We were drunk and, yeah, don’t fret about it.”

“Yeah, you’re completely right,” he answered with a small smile. Lily could swear he was staring at her lips but she was sleepy and this wasn’t good.

“Anyways, good night James,” she mumbled as she made her way to the kitchen. 

She suddenly felt a small grip on her forearm and her lips were on James’ lips. They were softer than she thought they were and she didn’t understand how but she was kissing him back. This wasn’t how she planned this night to go but as James deepened the seemingly innocent kiss, she felt like she could see through space and time. 

“I was talking about something like that,” said James before he went back into his room without saying another word.

Lily just stared trying to understand what just happened was real or not.

Wow.” 

  • Sirius: There is nothing less sexy than a dude asking if he can kiss you.
  • Remus: Nothing? I mean, what if I ate my own hair and pooped out a wig? What if I called my mom after sex and described it to her? What if I had a croissant blog?

April 3rd 1882: Jesse James killed

On this day in 1882 the famous outlaw of the Wild West, Jesse James, was killed by Robert Ford. James was a member of the James-Younger Gang from Missouri; his gang gained notoriety in the period 1866 to 1876 as they robbed banks, stagecoaches and trains. He first gained national attention after shooting a cashier during a robbery of a Missouri bank. The gang’s decline began with an attempted robbery of a bank in Northfield, Minnesota when the majority of the gang was captured or killed. James and his gang were pursued by law enforcement until the outlaw Robert Ford, who had posed as James’ friend, shot him in the back of the head in order to collect the bounty on him. The governor of Missouri quickly pardoned Ford, which shocked the public as it suggested their governor had conspired to kill a private citizen.

“In Loving Memory of my Beloved Son, Murdered by a Traitor and Coward Whose Name is not Worthy to Appear Here”
- epitaph for Jesse James, written by his mother

but I mean I’m so here for punk!lily but of course we all know how stifling school uniforms can be so maybe like james doesn’t even know how punk she is because he only ever sees her at school in sensible skirts and top-buttoned shirts but one time maybe he runs into her in diagon alley and she’s got ripped jeans and band tees and studs and james just mumbles to himself I’m head over heels in love with her

  • On this day in 1975, Julian Adderly died. Julian Edwin “Cannonball” Adderley was a jazz alto saxophonist of the hard bop era of the 1950s and 1960s. Adderley is remembered for his 1966 single “Mercy Mercy Mercy”, a crossover hit on the pop charts, and for his work with trumpeter Miles Davis, including on the epochal album Kind of Blue (1959). He was the brother of jazz cornetist Nat Adderley, a longtime member of his band.

  • On this day in 1963, Whitney Houston was born. Whitney Elizabeth Houston was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston was one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold over 200 million records worldwide. She released six studio albums, one holiday album and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification. Houston’s crossover appeal on the popular music charts, as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for “How Will I Know”, influenced several African American women artists who follow in her footsteps.
    Houston is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits. She is the second artist behind Elton John and the only woman to have two number-one Billboard 200 Album awards (formerly “Top Pop Albums”) on the Billboard magazine year-end charts. Houston’s 1985 debut album Whitney Houston became the best-selling debut album by a woman in history.[9] Rolling Stone named it the best album of 1986, and ranked it at number 254 on the magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.Her second studio album Whitney (1987) became the first album by a woman to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Its lead single “I Will Always Love You”, became the best-selling single by a woman in music history. With the album, Houston became the first act (solo or group, male or female) to sell more than a million copies of an album within a single week period under Nielsen SoundScan system. The album makes her the top female act in the top 10 list of the best-selling albums of all time, at number four. Houston continued to star in movies and contribute to their soundtracks, including the films Waiting to Exhale (1995) and The Preacher’s Wife (1996). The Preacher’s Wife soundtrack became the best-selling gospel album in history.

  • On this day in 1961, James B. Parsons became the first Black person to be appointed to the Federal District Court in the continental United States. On August 9, 1961, Parsons was nominated by President John F. Kennedy to a seat on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois vacated by Judge Philip L. Sullivan. Parsons was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 30, 1961, and received his commission the same day. He was the first black person given the prestigious appointment to the Federal bench, which under Article III is a life term.In 1974, author Joseph Goulden wrote a book about Federal judges called The Benchwarmers that was very critical of Parsons. Goulden claimed that a poll of Chicago lawyers revealed that only 15% had a favorable opinion of the judge. Goulden also claimed that Parsons had sat on the bench while drunk and that an overwhelming number of lawyers complained that he was unable to understand the issues in complex cases. Nevertheless, Parsons served as chief judge from 1975 to 1981, assuming senior status on August 30, 1981. Parsons served in that capacity until his death, in 1993, in Chicago.

  • On this day in 1960, the Race Riot happened in Jacksonville, Florida. Because of its high visibility and patronage, the Hemming Park and surrounding stores were the site of numerous civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s. Black Sit-ins began on August 13, 1960 when students asked to be served at the segregated lunch counter at Woolworths, Morrison’s Cafeteria and other eateries. They were denied service and kicked, spit at and addressed with racial slurs. This came to a head on “Ax Handle Saturday”, August 27, 1960. A group of 200 middle aged and older white men (allegedly some were also members of the Ku Klux Klan) gathered in Hemming Park armed with baseball bats and ax handles. They attacked the protesters conducting sit-ins. The violence spread, and the white mob started attacking all African-Americans in sight. Rumors were rampant on both sides that the unrest was spreading around the county (in reality, the violence stayed in relatively the same location, and did not spill over into the mostly-white, upper-class Cedar Hills neighborhood, for example). A black street gang called the “Boomerangs” attempted to protect the demonstrators. Police, who had not intervened when the protesters were attacked, now became involved, arresting members of the Boomerangs and other black residents who attempted to stop the beatings.
  • Nat Glover, who worked in Jacksonville law enforcement for 37 years, including eight years as Sheriff of Jacksonville, recalled stumbling into the riot. Glover said he ran to the police, expecting them to arrest the thugs, but was told to leave town or risk being killed.
    Several whites had joined the black protesters on that day. Richard Charles Parker, a 25-year old student attending Florida State University was among them. White protesters were the object of particular dislike by racists, so when the fracas began, Parker was hustled out of the area for his own protection. The police had been watching him and arrested him as an instigator, charging him with vagrancy, disorderly conduct and inciting a riot. After Parker stated that he was proud to be a member of the NAACP, Judge John Santora sentenced him to 90 days in jail. Jacksonville remained as two cities, one white and one black well into the 1970s and beyond. Throughout this time there remained a “Colored Town” section that was almost exclusively Black with its own businesses, professional offices, restaurants, theaters and was a near photo-negative reflection of the nearly all-white downtown area. Ghettos and shacks could be seen below the highways into the 1970s and beyond.
  • On this day in 1948, "I Was a Negro in the South for 30 Days" published .The series, written by Ray Sprigle (who was actually a white reporter), describes his experiences while disguised as a black man within the ‘Jim Crow ruled’ South. The articles formed the basis of Sprigle’s 1949 book In the Land of Jim Crow
  • On this day in 1936, Jesse Owens wins four gold medals in the Berlin Olympics.James Cleveland “Jesse” Owens was an American track and field athlete and four-time Olympic gold medalist.
    Owens specialized in the sprints and the long jump and was recognized in his lifetime as “perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history”. His achievement of setting three world records and tying another in less than an hour at the 1935 Big Ten track meet has been called “the greatest 45 minutes ever in sport” and has never been equaled. At the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, Owens won international fame with four gold medals: 100 meters, 200 meters, long jump, and 4x100 meter relay. He was the most successful athlete at the games and as such has been credited with “single-handedly crush[ing] Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy.”

  • On this day in 1905, Robert N.C. Nix  was born. Robert Nelson Cornelius Nix, Sr. was the first African American to represent Pennsylvania in the House of Representatives. The Robert N.C. Nix Federal Building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is named in his honor.In 1958, he defeated two opponents in a special election to fill a congressional vacancy left by Earl Chudoff in the House of Representatives. An elected official who rarely wanted or attracted widespread publicity, he supported mostly liberal legislation. He was reelected 10 times. He worked for the passage of the landmark legislation promoting the American Civil Rights Movement and privately sought to prevent the House from denying Rep. Adam Clayton Powell his seat in 1967. In 1975, he introduced an amendment to the Foreign Military Sales Act requiring the Defense Department to provide the U.S. Congress with information on identities of agents who negotiate arms sales for American firms

It’s already been two years since, in my opinion, the best TV show finished. I loved, love and I will always love House MD for everything it has taught me. I’ve learned so many things I don’t even know where to start, things about life, about people, knowing yourself, medicine. All and every single one of the characters has taught something, and I’ve grown to love them with all my soul. It’s the reason I’ve been able to get good marks this year, because thanks to it, I know that, as long as you don’t give up, you’ll get what you want, or at least, you’ll get what you deserve. It doesn’t matter how many years pass, House MD will always live inside all of the people who have watched and loved the show. Inside our memories and hearts, House, Cuddy, Wilson, Chase and all the others will live forever.
