Hi - it's my Birthday today and I always forget to ask, or like today have no trivia to request! Each year FaceBook shows me my past birthdays and the one that always sticks out was the prerelease on 7th July 2013 that I won (my 33rd Bday) and put pictures of my prizes online - which led to me getting a Xathrid Gorgon on my birthday cake as that was the promo for the event.

Happy Birthday!

USUK REC-LIST NOVEMBER 2014

Well here it is, the rec-list re-furbishment of this gross post you’ve all been waiting for. Remember bolded x’s are additional sequels or branch off stories and x’s after the authors name are links to their other social media and fandom related sites.

Last Seen’ does NOT mean ‘fanfiction last updated…’ it means when the author last updated any of their linked accounts.

If that seems strange to you remember with the dying state of the Hetalia fandom as a whole (not just USUK shippers) it is nice to know that there are people still out there.

Link summaries and fiction status/type will appear on hover, my apologies and condolences go out to you mobile users but I am afraid a computer is required for this task.

BEFORE ANYTHING

Here is my favorite fanfiction of all time:

The Tell Tale Heart’s by RainingPaperButterflies  x  

Alfred and Arthur hated each other from the moment they met, and decided instantly that they wanted nothing to do with the other. However when forced to share a dorm room, they begin to find that avoiding each other is going to be harder than it looks.

Mention this and I will gush for .02 seconds before bursting into tears and falling to the floor clutching my heart. It was one of the very first fanfictions I read on the lackluster internet of my black and white kindle before I knew the glory of having a fanfiction account.

Speaking of high-school au’s guess what’s next?

MC dislocated her shoulder and broke her rib while filming a video with Young Jeezy for the remix of ‘#Beautiful’ on July 7th 2013.
She had a positive attitude about her injuries and went back to work several days later. She continued looking fabulous at important events with customised slings to match her outfits. She truly is a fashion icon!

Let’s commemorate the Angel by getting this to 100,000 notes♡

I am very happy and honored to share my birthday with the one and only Ringo Starr :) Especially since I’m 16 now and this song is perfect! Rock on Ringo!

Hello, my name’s Isabel– people call me Belle for short. I’m 17 and the last two years of my life have been a struggle from self harm, severe anxiety/panic attacks and terrible speech problems (I stutter and get my words backwards). My favorite band is Crown the Empire and I met half the band at Warped ‘13 (July 7th, 2013). My past isn’t so great but when I entered high school, I was digging into some new music and I noticed this band who was all theatrical and had that awesome steam punk look. When I found out that the guitarist of Crown the Empire, had a speech impediments, he became someone I thought would be pretty rad to meet. My disorders and my speech problems grew worse because I had a lot of bad relationships and my anxiety grew more and more. But when I was done with my sophomore year, it was my 2nd year of Warped and I got a chance to get a picture with the guitarist of Crown the Empire (which I won’t post because I like this picture of us from Warped '14). After meeting Brandon Hoover, I felt like something sparked because he was the nicest man I’ve ever met– he’s kind and funny and I wish more people were like him. July 7th, 2013 changed my life forever.   After the Summer of '13, my whole Junior year went down. I struggled again with bad relationships, bad anxiety and severe panic attacks through out the year. I felt like complete shit, to be honest. I relapsed November 24th, 2013 from an anxiety attack relating to a bad break up and the first thing I did was turn on “Memories of A Broken Heart”, “Lead Me Out The Dark” and “The One You Feed” and cried in my room and in the shower like a complete baby. After crying and all the broken heart shit, I decided, I needed to move on and I checked my Twitter. The guys of Crown the Empire made me laugh harder than my ex did. I felt happier after that. I messed up my chances going VIP for “Start From The Bottom” tour and I couldn’t go to Break Down the Walls tour either because my deal with my mom was, “get good grades, you can go to Warped and meet Crown the Empire”– so what did I do? I stepped up and studied my ass off just to meet one band and one band only (I’ve basically waited an entire year to meet Crown the Empire)   Around March/April, I saw Crown the Empire were doing Band Happy classes all Summer long for Warped and I begged my mom so much for these and she finally agreed because she knew Brandon made me smile a lot and she knew I I looked up to him. I’ve already saw them twice and I was so stoked to meet them in person on July 6th, 2014. I tweeted Crown the Empire so many times, saying how excited I was. How happy I was to finally meet the man I look up to as a hero. This band always replied to me and liked my tweet. Even Brandon replied to me and it made my day much better.   I’m an artist (also a musician) and I had an art show May, 15th 2014 and I decided, I’m going to make a 6 Anime-panel of Crown the Empire. I did it in 2 ½ days the week of the show and in colored pencil. All of a sudden, Brandon tweets me and told me, to send it to him again when it’s all finished! That motivated my tired body to push myself even more now (I’ve worked 48 hours straight on this). So when I was finished, I took pictures of it and it hung proudly in my school. The band twitter followed me so I sent them a message directly to Brandon and he replied to me saying it looks so badass and he’d post it soon. So on May 18th, 2014– Brandon posted my art work– my hero complimented and posted my artwork on their social media sites. Over the last 2-3 weeks it hit an over all of 10K+ views and I’ve never felt so successful in my life and more motivated to do more art work. Andy retweeted my work and the feedback was so positive, I couldn’t believe it. It was an amazing feel and I was meeting Brandon 2 months after. Ironically, on May 18th, 2013– that was the first time I saw Crown the Empire live.   After a terrible month of June, I was able to pass all my classes thanks to Crown the Empire. July rolled by and July 6th 2014 came by so quick. I was late to Warped but my band happy class was at 3:00. When 3:00 came by, my nerves became worse because I had written a letter to Brandon a month before meeting him in a few minutes. I walked into the tent and I was sitting right there near my hero. I gave him my letter and Brandon put it in his mouth to be funny. I complimented his shirt because everyone knows he’s crazy for pugs and he high fived me. The band happy class went so well and we all laughed and the guys really opened up– especially Brandon. He didn’t even stutter that day and we carried on a conversation. Brandon and I talked a lot and I couldn’t believe I was talking to my hero again. A mosher pushed the hell out of me at Born of Osiris, before band happy and I told Brandon I messed up my knee but managed to stick for Band Happy. He high fived me, called me “fucking awesome” and a trooper. We got a selfie (the one on top) and he signed right on top of my scars. I’ve been 7 months clean because of Brandon and because of Crown the Empire. I had to leave Warped Tour early because my knee got really bad to a point where I couldn’t walk properly and I had to miss out on Crown the Empire’s set sadly.   I met my fucking hero. He complimented me and we talked. We got a picture and we talked. It’s because of Brandon, I didn’t give up because of my disorders and disabilities. It’s because of him that I finished my shitty junior year and was able to meet him and 5 other goofballs. It’s because of Brandon, I’ve been clean for 7 months. I still stutter a lot but every time I panic now, I’ll always refer back to our picture and put on Crown the Empire. Brandon saved my life the last few years and I finally got a chance to finally talk to him, he signed my scars, got my letter to him and took a picture with him. He’s so down to earth and Crown the Empire really are the sweetest guys ever. Brandon is the sweetest guy I’ve ever met and I can’t explain that any further.    Thank you Brandon for always being there for me when I needed to laugh, thank you for saving my life and thank you especially for changing my life and becoming my hero.

So my first Taylor concert was May 11th, 2010 at the Nassau Coliseum, and here’s me opening the tickets on Christmas morning.

And although there’s only a single picture of my mom and I, I’d prefer not to post it simply because I’m crying due to the group of girls in front of me who were really tall and I couldn’t see Taylor at all (my mom took these pictures).

Then in 6th grade (2011), I dressed up as Taylor from the YBWM video for Halloween

6th grade was also the year when Speak Now was at Madison Square Garden which was completely sold out and impossible to find tickets (that weren’t $900 a piece).

-

Then on July 13th, 2013 (7th grade, going into 8th), I went to the Red Tour. All my pictures are on my other computer, but here’s a picture of my sister and I before I had my emotional breakdown because tAYLOR SWIFT.

Then on August 21st (going into 9th grade) Taylor LIKED MY INSTAGRAM POST.

And then here’s me when 1989 came out.

And here’s my dog attacking me in the process

And then a few days later, October 30th, I skipped school to see Taylor perform in Times Square, which was super awesome because I was about 5 feet away.

And Scott and Andrea were about 10 feet behind me (also very cool).

And here’s a horribly embarrassing picture of me with my siblings, very uncomfortable because we were up since 4am and it was freezing.

And on Valentine’s day, I printed out a bunch of Taylor Swift v-day cards, and handed them out to people around school, which is kind of a big step for me considering I’m a lame freshman in a sea of upperclassmen, but it was very exciting and everyone seemed to have thought it was funny.

On May 17th, my new Swiftie friends, Julia (attractivefriend) and Kelvin (republicofswift) came over to watch the Bad Blood premier, and it was pretty damn awesome.

A few months later, Taylor liked 3 different posts, and then on June 1st, she followed me.

And I cried for 3 hours and choked on a meatball. Here’s a Snapchat that my friend put in her bio.

I also printed them out and stuck them around the house.

And recently, I created a group chat with now 10 of my closest friends, and they are absolutely hilarious and turn the shittiest day into the greatest. We call ourselves the “poTAYto Squad.”

(noitsolivia // republicofswift // kaleidoscope-heartbeat-s // taylorconda //indierecordtaylor // coffeeallalonee // looseslips // welcometonewyorkcitay //sarahcarinhas // givingoutchanceseverytime)

And this is all because of Taylor, who’s impacted my life since the 2nd grade. I’m now 15, and going into the 10th grade, so thank you, Taylor, for raising me into the person I am today. You’re absolutely wonderful. taylorswift Kelvin (republicofswift) and I will be in section 232A this Friday, July 10th all dressed up with posters (we’ll post pictures later on this week). Love you lots, and thanks again, Taylor<3
