just saw this on the west end

2

I saw Taylor was on tumblr one lunchtime, so I reblogged a gif of me dancing that I posted on Monday, with the message “Taylor!!! First off, I love you and the first two songs so so much. And I’m finally at dance college! I’m having the most amazing time and in a few years when I’m in a ballet company or on the West End I’ll still be warming up to your music. Thank you for everything, love Emma xxx”
She liked it and I had a little meltdown, and I thought that I was the happiest she would make me until the album came out. That is until I finished college to see a message from Taylor Nation asking me for my details. I replied straight away, and they called me as soon as I did. They invited me and my Mum to London the next day for a special event, and from the timing and they fact that they wanted me to travel at such short notice I figured I would get to meet her. So of course we said yes, booked train tickets, and then it was time and we were all queuing to register and check in. At first nobody wanted to mention Taylor, and then a woman cane to apologise for the delay and said just chill and talk about Taylor. So after that we all got super excited and started talking, and on the way in we were told where we could leave our bags and coats, and this guy said to me “You won’t need it, where you’re going it’s going to be hot. And you’ll be faded enough from the heat, never mind meeting… you know.”
Which was 100% confirmation we were meeting Taylor and I started freaking out and told people that I met (WHO I WANNA GIVE A MASSIVE SHOUTOUT TO -ABBIE AND FLORA - @auntbeckyisbae @spoookyswift WE TRIED TO KEEP EACH OTHER SANE THE WHOLE TIME AND THEY’RE AWESOME)
And then after another little wait we got on a bus to go to the classified location: Taylor’s house!!! We were forewarned not to scream when we got there so we crept in very quietly and only whispering how shook we were. Her house is absolutely gorgeous! All of the design is so H E R and it looked like one of those stunning pinterest homes. So we went to the kitchen and ate delicious cookies and M&M’s that said REP on them, and of course the chicken nuggets. There were loads of fizzy drinks, and the next thing we see Scott, in his usual state of handing out guitar picks. Then Tree walks in and we have another meltdown (also she is so pretty like how!??) and then I saw everyone crowding round the kitchen doors so I went over there. I looked up to see Andrea and some of TN walking down the stairs waving and the excitement just kept building until the crowd started moving. Me, Abbie, and Flora realised we were heading to the living room, and all held hands and with our parents/siblings too. One woman from TN saw usand said “I love this support system you have here!” And we ended up sat on the floor next to the air conditioning which was very nice, it got SO HOT in there. We all saw TN, Scott and Andrea pointing and whispering and we knew she was about to arrive. I was still calm at this point, until Scott opened the door just a crack. I knew that if it wasn’t Taylor, he would’ve just opened it normally, and then THE QUEEN HERSELF WALKS IN AND WE ALL STARTED CRYING AND SCREAMING AND SHES JUST LIKE “HEYYY!”
Then she sits down in the chair and you’ve heard most of this so I won’t go into too much detail. But yeah she said all the countries and she couldn’t work the speaker and the music is SO GOOD YOU GUYS I CANT WAIT FOR EVERYONE TO HEAR IT. And then it was time for meet and greet!! I spoke to Andrea first and she hugged me and then I went in and saw Taylor Swift and I started crying as soon as she spoke to me and hugged me.
She said “Hiii. You look beautiful” and i was like “I love you”
And then my mum told her “They said we only get one picture so I was gonna let her get it on her own but they said I can get another one” and Taylor goes “Of course, don’t be silly!”
And then my mum told her it’s my birthday soon and I said “It’s on Wednesday!”
She leaned in for another hug and said “Happy birthday!” Then after that hug she kept hold of many hand as I told her “I was supposed to have a party tonight but I was like sorry guys, I’m sick, I’m going home”
And then my mum said “We only heard about this yesterday.”
AND THEN THE BEST THING HAPPENED SHE LOOKS AT ME AND SAYS “Yeah i picked you like two days ago - you’re the dancer right? From Manchester!”
At this point I’m jumping up and down crying and my mum told her that I learnt a dance to one of her songs yesterday, and she looked so happy, she goes “Which one!?”
And I said “Look What You Made Me Do! The teacher pointed right at me and said ‘you’re gonna love this cause we’re dancing to Taylor Swift”
And she was like “Yeah! I saw you do your thing” and she gestured a little bit of the move and I said “A double pirouette!”
She goes “Yeah! And I was like we HAVE to get her”
(Cue my actual death)
And she carried on: “I’m so glad you made it. I was like, can she come? Is she coming? Cause I wasn’t sure with the West End thing whether you were in London or Manchester…”
So I told her “No that was just someday, and I was wondering do you have a favourite musical? What musicals do you like?” And then she told me “That’s a hard question… but the whole speak now tour was based off Wicked.” And i was like “Ohmygod that’s so cool”
Then the lady asks if we want to take the picture and I was so excited, so first we got the one with my mum in, then before she even got chance to ask me what pose I wanted I said “Can i get a kiss on the cheek?”
And just as I think it’s over and she can’t possibly make me any happier, she gives me another hug goodbye and as I’m walking away I said
“I’ll hopefully see you on tour”
And she looks me dead in the eye and says “Yes. That would be the BEST!”
AND THEN WE ALL CRIED AND WENT TO GET OUR MERCH AND GO THANKS FOR EVERYTHING TAYLOR BABE I LOVE YOU MORE THAN I CAN SAY ❤️❤️❤️

Ever since middle school you had been watching your friends find dates and get into relationships. They teased you about being a third wheel sometimes, but you didn’t mind. You did feel lonely once in a while without someone there to hold you, but you didn’t feel that way very often. Even though technically you weren’t dating anyone in real life, there was a boy thousands of miles away that had your heart. He was constantly texting, snapchatting, and even video calling you to the point where he knew more about you than your friends in real life did. You had the biggest crush on him and wished more than anything that you could see him in person one day.

Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie on Broadway, British Accents and Wearing Those 'Kinky Boots'

To some theatergoers, Brendon Urie might appear to be just another actor starring in Kinky Boots, the Tony-winning Broadway musical by Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein that centers on a reluctant shoemaker and his unlikely inspiration.

But at Sunday’s performance, the audience’s Panic! at the Disco fans let out a collective gasp at the frontman’s surprise entrance, and loudly screamed as if at a rock concert when he showcased his bright, four-octave vocal range on solo numbers.

“Oh, my god, it feels phenomenal - I’m just kind of getting sandbagged with love,” Urie tells The Hollywood Reporter of making his Broadway debut in the musical through Aug. 6. “I don’t know what first attracted me to this world, but the whole universe that is musical theater just blows me away. I love it.”

Urie, 30, goes Off Script with The Hollywood Reporter to talk dancing in heels, wandering around the West Village and writing music for a Broadway project in the future.

When did you first consider joining this show?

The first time I saw it, two years ago. I went with a friend, and, I mean, immediately just upon seeing the first couple of scenes, I had this immense appreciation for the show’s message and I just wanted to be a part of it in any capacity. By the end, I was cheering and crying and laughing and having the best time.

It took me a couple of tours, but I’m glad it worked out. We were trying to book other [tours] and I said, “No, I want to take a break. I want to see what Broadway’s like.” [Cyndi Lauper and I] have hung out a handful of times and already she’s one of my favorite people in the world.

What’s your theater background? Did you do a bunch of acting in high school?

Not at all. I was a part of the theater craft class, so I used to build the sets and be behind-the-scenes, working tech. And my siblings and I would dress up and make little home movies with lots of singing.

I grew up loving musicals: West Side Story, Oklahoma!, Guys and Dolls. The Sound of Music is my favorite musical of all time. I’ve got such a crush on Julie Andrews.

What has surprised you most about starring in a musical?

It’s so wildly different, but so much fun. I guess I expected, to a certain degree, the nakedness you feel up onstage, but it’s honestly unlike any other feeling. When I’m playing with my band in a concert, the fans are all singing the lyrics together and screaming back at you like a giant campfire. But Broadway, you’re there to perform - it’s just you and the spotlight, and you have to just run into it at 100 percent. I’ve been trying to live in the moment, forget who I am and be that character, and just feel that emotion. Luckily, the music is so powerful that when you’re singing the lyrics, you already feel the emotion. I hope people get hit with the same fire and message of love that I got when I first saw this.

What has been the toughest part about playing Charlie Price?

Dancing in heels is actually pretty comfortable for me, and it’s harder to act like I’m not comfortable in the heels! (Laughs.) But the most challenging was the British accent. My dialect coach Amy Jo [Jackson] ran through the script with me over Skype. The hardest part was getting criticism like, “You sound Australian right now - let’s fix that.”

What new habit have you taken on?

I’m drinking more Throat Coat tea. On tour, we’ll do four shows and then a day off. Doing eight shows a week is crazy, in the best way possible. 

What have you given up?

Doing shows with my band, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.

What do you do when you first wake up on a show day?

I make coffee and breakfast for my wife and I, and I walk around for at least 45 minutes. This is the most extended stay I’ve had [in New York] and the West Village is very neighborhood-y with a bunch of dogs, so it’s a nice walk.

It’s a totally different vibe from L.A., where if you walk into a restaurant, everybody turns. In New York, I don’t think anybody cares, and that’s a good thing. You can have Tom Hanks walk into a restaurant and they’d be like, “Oh, yeah, that’s Tom Hanks,” and continue to have their conversation.

What’s your preshow ritual?

I do the warm-up thing. And I actually spoiled myself and put an Xbox in my dressing room, so I could play a little.

Most memorable moment at the stage door?

The first night was unreal - hundreds of kids, people climbing on trees and standing on cars. I thought they were going to get arrested, honestly! And fans bring gifts -  they’ve drawn stuff for me, given me flowers and written amazing letters. That kind of love just does not cease, and each night I feel it.

Are you interested in originating a part on Broadway?

Oh, my goodness, yes, I would love that. I’ve been thinking about that more and more. I’d love to do something that I’ve written music for, stuff I haven’t written yet. That would be so fun. I’d love to get an idea down and work with some amazing creative minds on that.

If you could be in any other Broadway show, what would it be?

To be Jean Valjean in a revival of Les Miserables would be amazing. And, having grown up Mormon, I think The Book of Mormon would be a good fit. (Laughs.) That’d be pretty fun.

cute things about nadim namaan’s raoul:

  • raoul was so cute and smiley watching christine perform in ‘think of me’ and someone had to tap him to sit down after his lines 
  • he hugged her a LOT, lots of small arm rubs and cuddles and general supportiveness 
  • kissed her hand tenderly after the ‘five minutes….little lotte’ line (aww)
  • called out to christine ‘i’m with you’ (or something similar) when it was announced that she would be playing the role of the countess and she looked up at him in the box all worried
  • cutely tilted her chin up during the roof scene
  • smiled and nodded when she said ‘you’ll guard me and you’ll guide me’ 
  • literally saved christine’s life and pulled her out of the way of the falling chandelier 
  • dove off a bridge into the lake to swim to the lair (you see him actually jump and disappear and i can’t remember if this is a normal thing or only for the west end??)
  • looked away when christine kisses and comforts the phantom (i felt like it was him watching her sacrifice her freedom for him and he just looked so heartbroken)
  • walked out of the lair with christine’s support and didn’t stupidly try and fight the phantom again (probably because he had just almost died ofc) and still found the strength to be the one to row the boat away from the lair afterwards.
Shooting arrows

Honestly, when I first got this request my mind went a mile a minute because there are just so many things I could do with this prompt but I decided to literally take it as it is so here you go. Some, hopefully fun, fluffy Wally x batsis. Thank you for sending this prompt in! Also I have no idea how laser tag works like so excuse the discrepancies and incorrect explanation / visualization. That aside, I hope you enjoy!


“Are you ready to lose, babe?” Wally asks as he picks his laser gun and you roll your eyes, laughing at his attempt at trying to bring you down with his words.

You grab your own laser gun before turning to look at him. “The only person that’s going to lose here is you, West.” You poke his chest with the tip of the gun and Wally scoffs, pushing it away before wriggling his eyebrows. You had to laugh at how silly Wally is being and you lightly smack his arm. “I am going to win this.” You lean over to whisper this to him and Wally laughs.

“Can you even shoot?” Truthfully, Wally has never seen you anywhere near any sort of guns. He knows you do mixed martial arts but he definitely has never seen you wield a sword or hold a gun so he is definitely looking forward to getting to know your skills.

You look at the laser gun in your hand, inspecting it for a few seconds before shrugging your shoulders. “We’ll just have to see when we get inside, Wally.” You tell your boyfriend and before the two of you can even continue talking, the person who is in charge of manning the game tells you to go in to the game room using the two separate doors. So you lean forward to press your lips against Wally’s cheek. “Good luck, West.” You giggle before rushing to the door you are meant to go in to and had to marvel at how dark everything is.

For your twentieth monthsary, Wally decided to bring you out for dinner before promptly challenging you to a healthy, competitive game of laser tag. First one to lose has to do whatever the winner has to say – which is pretty tame if you have to admit truthfully. Before the two of you entered the premise, you had Wally make a promise to not cheat and use his speed to win the game between the both of you – because this had happened more often than not for the past few times he had brought you to the arcade, theme park or state fairs.

“Babe, you in here already?” Wally calls out, pulling you out of your train of thoughts. You can hear his footsteps in the distant and immediately move from in front of the door. Thankfully, the two of you are the last two customers so there are no one but the both of you in this room.

“Am I?” You call out, heading towards one of the rocks as you take cover. You look at the gun in your hand and wonder how to operate it. Fooling around, you decide to press the trigger, slightly surprising yourself when a light shoots out from the gun and you hear Wally exclaiming in delight. Your eyes widen when you realize you just gave your position away to Wally and immediately head towards the other rock, taking cover. You crouch and lean against the rock until you are almost flat and waited with abated breath as you hear Wally walk closer.

The moment Wally reaches the rock where he thought you had been, he shot the rock only to end up disappointed when he realizes that you are no longer there. Wally keeps his gun close as he looks around the place – it’s dark enough that he can’t see much but Wally thinks if he squints enough he might even be able to see an outline or some sort. To his surprise, you shot him on the chest causing Wally to yelp in surprise when you won a point.

“Babe, that’s not fair!” Wally cries out in despair as he scrambles to move from his initial spot but seeing as you are currently still crouched on the ground; he still could not see you. You giggle quietly to yourself as you move to follow him.

“It’s a competition,” You tell him causing Wally to yelp in surprise before he groans when you shoot him yet again. Wally finally spots you and you squeal when he chases after you, trying to shoot at you.

“Why are you so good at shooting?” Wally exclaims when you evade his shots and keep shooting at him. You cackle, mentally counting the points you have gotten over Wally. At this rate, you might even end up winning this thing between the two of you.

This thing goes on for the next five minutes – every single time Wally shoots at you, you manage to shoot him back twice, scoring a lot of points and just as there is only one minute left to the timer, Wally decides to do the most dramatic thing he can think of. He uses his speed and manages to catch you, pushing you up against the wall, causing you to whine because “Wally, you are not supposed to be using your speed!” and Wally corners you.

“Drastic times call for drastic measures, Y/N.” Wally leans down and captures your lips in his and you let out a moan when he pushes his body against you. All thoughts about winning left your mind as you wrap your arms around his neck, pulling him down to kiss him deeper. Wally glances at the timer and smiles in to the kiss before he pulls away, causing you to pout in displeasure because you were having such a good time kissing your boyfriend???

But before you can even complain, Wally shoots you multiple times and you let out a gasp when the timer rings, signifying the end of the game. “Holy shit – you did not just do that!” You cry out when you saw the score: Wally won the competition between the two of you by a good two points – two points he managed to receive because you had totally lost all of your inhibitions when he kissed you.

Wally laughs before he lets you out of his arms. “See you outside, loser.” He presses his lips against your cheek, causing you to roll your eyes at his jab. Wally walks away, laughing at your affronted expression.

“Wally West, you are so going to get it!” You call out at his retreating figure but despite losing the game, you cannot help but laugh. It has been a while since you got to hang out with your boyfriend like this – like a normal couple. It definitely is something worth remembering. Also, who knew you would have such good aims too? You are definitely looking forward to going here again next time.

44) Adam Campbell, senior (732) Says fellow student Jessica Cave says she saw 10 shooters at the school(Jessica herself was not interviewed).

What did the ear witnesses hear? Numerous students heard gunshots/explosions in different parts of the school simultaneously. Which of course probably meant more than two shooters, as Harris and Klebold were officially together almost the entire time. To wit:

45) Sara Houy, sophomore (380) Heard bombs in cafeteria below, while shooters were inside library, exploding bombs.

46) Josh Lapp, sophomore (480) Heard gunfire in other parts of the school while attack on library is going on.

50) Alex Babiniec, freshman (1954) “He thought the explosions were coming from the level he was on and from downstairs at the same time.”

51) Drew Lagerborg, junior (1999) Ran west down south hallway, there was a gunman at end of that hallway. Ran to north hallway, he heard a shooter down that hallway as well.

54) Lindsay Wyant, sophomore (4799) Heard shots in cafeteria and library at same time.

55) Evan Todd, sophomore (8826) Heard bombs in other parts of the building while Harris and Klebold were in library.

56 and 57) Diwata Perez and Jessica Holliday, seniors (9923) Heard gunshots elsewhere while shooters were in library.

Among the best evidence are witnesses who actually identified other participants by name.

58) Crystal Archuleta, junior (EP1-197) “…she did see one person throw a pipe bomb. …..She told me at the time she thought it was Robert Perry.”

59) Seth Dubois, freshman (EP21-125) “…Seth told Katherine(Carlston) that Robert Perry was seen shooting a girl in the back while leaving the library.”

60) Wade Allen Frank, senior (EP1-91) “Mr. Frank told me that he thought origonally one of the individuals(shooting) was someone by the name of Robert…” “He stated that the person was tall, approximately 6'3” and kind of ackward(sic) and gangly.“

61) Bryan Frye, sophomore (EP25-69) "He stated that the person he had previously believed this shooter to be was Robert Perry. …..In a previous interview, after receiving his yearbook, he had told his father that he believed the shooter to be Robert Perry. He also stated that the gunman had bad acne.”

62) Courtney Haulman, freshman (EP25-91) “There was three guys. The guy I remember most was the main guy. He’s over 6’ tall and has long curly dark-colored hair. He was wearing a trench coat. His name is Robert Perry.”

63) Lacey Hohn, freshman (EP1-186) “…can you identify or descibe who was shooting? ….Ms. Hohn said that she does not believe it was Harris or Klebold. Ms. Hohn believes it was an individual named Robert.”

64) Bijen Monty, junior (EP1-110) “I asked her if she saw the source of the shooting. She told me she saw who she thought, at the time, was Robert Perry with a gun hanging around his neck. She said she never actually saw him shoot the weapon. "She asked me if I had any information in regards to Robert Perry. I informed her I did not.”

65) Tessa Nelson, freshman (EP1-113) “I asked her if she saw the source of the shots. She said she saw a male, who she thought was Robert Perry, wearing boots, dark jeans with dark hair, walking down the stairs outside the cafeteria. She said the male suspect pulled a gun and started shooting.”

66) Katelyn Sue Place, freshman (EP21-285) Kate said, “It was (Redacted). I’m almost positive of it. I remember looking him dead in the eye. He was in my debate class….…..Dylan kind of looked like Robert, but Dylan doesn’t have the long face. Robert’s teeth are messed up and he was smiling and I saw his teeth then. Kate said that she has since seen pictures of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, and she said, "It’s not one of them.”(Referring to the person she saw shooting out on the outside commons.) “She remembers him shooting Ann Marie(Hochalter). …. Robert was just randomly shooting. …Robert was still shooting. ….Kate said that Robert shot Ann Marie before he smiled at Kate. ….She looked and saw Jason(Autenrieth) trying to help Ann Marie, dragging her away from Robert, to the side.”

67) Lacey Smith, junior (4470) “On the diagram she depicts (Redacted) as walking in through the doors, past where she was sitting, and going in about as far as they north end of the school store. It was at that time she heard the windows breaking and then realized she was hearing shots. ”….she did not have any trouble indentifying PERRY when he walked past her. I asked SMITH how sure she was that the person she saw and spoke with was (Redacted). I asked, “90 percent sure? 50 percent sure?” Her response was “100 percent sure.” I then showed SMITH a photo lineup which included a picture of Dylan KLEBOLD, and asked her if the person who walked past her was in the lineup. She stated he was NOT in the lineup. …..As (Redacted) passed her and was near the commons area of the cafeteria, she then explained that (Redacted) pulled a weapon out from under his trench coat and started firing into the cafeteria.

68) Brenton Hooker, junior (16397) “….he turned around and observed an individual he thought was ROBERT PERRY(ex-student of Columbine High School) standing outside the door just to the north of the main entrance shooting a pistol in his direction….” ….HOOKER described the individual he thought was PERRY as 6'8” - 6'11" in height, very skinny, tight black pants, black trench coat…“

69) Tiffany Lien, freshman (968) “Lien stated she believed gunman number one was (Redacted)…. …Lien stated that she was approximately twenty to twenty-five feet away from gunman number one and looked at him face to face for approximately 25 seconds, frozen in her tracks.” Tall male had long black trench coat, black jeans, dark brown hair.

72) Chris Thierren, sophomore (1207) Saw a tall shooter with acne, large nose, shoulder-length hair. “He stated that the picture he saw was of (Redacted) and he was ‘pretty sure’ he was the shooter he saw that morning at CHS.”

73) Erin Walton, sophomore (4139) “Erin Walton said she knew one of the shooters, and that he not one of (the) two Eric and Dylan. …he was a senior named (Redacted). and he was very tall, had bad acne scars on his cheeks…. ”

74) Chris Wisher, sophomore (9832) “….he recognized one of the shooters–the other shooter was the kid wearing black that was arrested and placed in cuffs and put inside a black police car.

75) Ashley Egelund, freshman (22671) “Ashley was in north corridor when she observed (Redacted) and Eric Harris coming around the corner from the library…. She said Chris Morris was armed with a handgun while Harris was armed with a shotgun.(5248 ) ….both started shooting at Ashley…. Ashley did not know (Redacted) at first but she saw his picture in the yearbook and is positive it was (Redacted).

76) Leiha Murphy, sophomore (3828) In the cafeteria, notices commotion outside north-west door. "I saw a guy I recognized as (Redacted). He was running… (Joe)Stair had his blond hair down. It’s past his shoulders. He’s about 6’, tall, skinny, he was wearing a long black trench coat…. I saw nothing in his hands. He was observed a short distance from whatever was going on at the door. My thought was that (Redacted) was involved if there was a fight.” Stair named in the cafeteria map(3830). Leiha also immediately picked him out of a photo lineup. “I ask Leiha if she was certain that this individual was (Redacted). Leiha said "Oh yeah, I’m certain…. I saw his face full on. I remember seeing his face completely….(she said he stood in place for about 15 seconds)….I remember him graduating last year.” She remembers him wearing 'makeup on his face and hand’ and that because of that, he stood out from other students.“ ” (3836) Also, at least four ear- witnesses heard the suspects refer to one of their number as “Joe.”(Encinas, 2943, Herivel, 1927, McKenna, 3525, and Salazar, EP21-224)

77) Cara Sander, sophomore (EP25-203) Describes gunman as pudgy, overweight, very full face, thick bushy eyebrows. IDs him as (Redacted), who is heavy-set with a round face, short dark hair and dark eyebrows. A copy of the CHS yearbook page with Brian Sargent’s photo is included in her interview. [John Ungerland(1701) says Brian Sargent has a round chubby face and is a big guy with bushy eyebrows. He saw him that morning at school; Sargent was wearing a short sleeve white button-up shirt-a polo type.]

78) Jason Brehm, sophomore (719) One of the shooters had a very round face, shorter than 5'11”. Not Harris or Klebold.

79) Mindy Pollock, freshman (10009) Sees one gunman outside west entrance, holding a gun on the fence. …Dressed in a “white dress-type shirt”, short brown hair, with a “little bit of a gut”. “POLLOCK stated she recognized the lower, #1 gunman as (Redacted).”(1095)

80) David Eagle, sophomore (1878) “The guy with the gun had black hair looked like it was spiked shaved on the sides.(sic) It was also blond on top. 5'9”, about 18 years old. “He has since seen pictures of Harris and Klebold on television. …David said that the person he saw did not look like the people he’s seen on television.”

84) Nathan Anema, freshman (2359) “….Anema identified (Redacted) as possibly being the person he saw throw a pipe bomb during the shooting at Columbine High School on 4-20-99. …Anema stated that he initially thought the person that he saw throwing the pipe bomb was (Redacted).”

85) Katy Beer, freshman (6636) “…. when the incident began at Columbine High School, she initially tried to get out of the school by going toward the main doors on the east side of the school by the administrative offices, however, she said she saw a third shooter next to these offices and that this third shooter shot out windows at that location. …Katy Beer told him this third shooter may have been (Redacted).”

Also attached is a 1A envelope is a diagram of Columbine High School indicating the diection of Hengel and the two individuals dressed in black.” Apparently the interviewing officer didn’t like what he was hearing, and so the interviewer ends up telling the eyewitness what he saw: “I then advised Mark Hengel that the skinny person he saw standing and shooting was Dylan Klebold and the person he saw standing over the duffel bag was Eric Harris.”

100) Monica Schuster junior (19470) “Schuster saw gunman but did not believe it was Harris and Klebold.”

101) Kacey Ruegsegger, junior, gunshot victim in library (128) “Ruegsegger did not recognize the pictures of Harris and Klebold she has seen in the media as the gunmen in the library.”

The historical context of Columbine seldom gets any mention in the mainstream media. State after state had legalized conceal carry laws for law abiding citizens. As each state passed those laws, crime plummeted.
The gun-grabbers were losing the PR war over the issue of gun control as it became clear that armed citizens are adeterrent to crime. The gun-grabbers needed a public relations event so horrific that the emotional reaction to it would outweigh all possible logical arguments on the issue of gun control. Colorado was on the verge of passing a conceal carry law. Then Columbina happened, and the national move towards allowing law abiding citisens to carry concealed weapons slammed to a complete halt.

Certainly there are many interests that oppose private citizens being able to stop crime. Organized crime tops that list, followed by many polioce officials who see their own authority and pensions threatened by a public able to take care of themselves. Finally there are the pro-dictatorship forces in the US which see a disarmed and hyelpless population as crucial to their designs.

It is in this context that the very odd aspects of the Columbine shooting need to be examined. Looking back from a time when we know the government lied about weapons of mass destruction, and with 84% of Americans no longer trusting the official story of 9-11, it is valid to ask if Columbine was a staged event to trick Americansinto surrendering their Second Amendment rights.

The White T-shirt Bomber There were a couple of publicized interviews of students on 4/20/99, in which students claimed to have seen three suspects. The official report, which came out several months later, claimed that these people were confused. The report claims that they saw Eric Harris both before and after he took of his trench coat, and thus thought that he was two different suspects. Now, the southwest side of Columbine is where the shooting began, and it is a jumble of corners, angles and hills. People near the West entrance would not be able to see around to the stairs. People by or down the stairs would not be able to see the West entrance. So, only the witnesses further away would have the best perspective on the unfolding events. What do these witnesses say? THE WITNESSES Chris Wisher (page 1261 in the 11,000 pages of released files) Chris states that he was behind the cafeteria about 100 yards away, and heard what he thought were fireworks. He turned and saw two kids wearing trench coats, and one kid wearing a white T-shirt who was throwing bombs onto the school. One of the trench-coated kids shot a shotgun at him, and then other kid in a trench coat had an automatic rifle. A little later, he and his friends also saw a person with a gun hiding in the bushes in Weaver Park. Jake Apodaca (page 653) He states that he saw 3 suspects, simultaneously. He was at the soccer field, heard firecrackers. He turned and saw two guys carrying shotguns, wearing black trench coats, black berets, black pants, black army boots, and black T-shirts. He had seen them at school before, but could not find them in the yearbook. A 3rd guy wearing a white T-shirt, jeans, light brown hair, that he had not seen him at school before, was seen throwing bombs onto the roof. It is not stated if the 3rd suspect had a gun or not. Jake also states that he saw a gunman with a shotgun hiding in the bushes in Weaver Park. Jonathan Cole (page 749) He states that he had met up with Jake Apodaca and Chris Wisher outside the main West entrance. There, he noticed two tall guys in black trench coats, no hats, one had on a ski mask, and one had “puffy” hair. One had a white T-shirt under his coat, the other had a black or dark T-shirt. These 2 walked over to top of the hill and looked down toward the cafeteria. He then saw a third male, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans, exit the school through the same door. This person looked over to the other two suspect, and yelled “GO!! GO!!”. The two suspects pulled out guns and began shooting. Jonathan began running, looked back and saw the person in the white T-shirt throwing some bombs onto the roof, which exploded. Several days later, when students were allowed back into the school to claim their belongings, he saw the white-t-shirted bomb-thrower at the school. This person is described as being 5'10", wearing black glasses, and having collar length blondish brown hair. Jonathan was shown a photo lineup, but could not identify him as one of those suspects. Jonathan was about 73’ to 75’ away from the gunmen, but could not identify them. William Arapkiles (page 660) On 5/5/99, Billy states that he was at the soccer field, and heard firecrackers. He turned and saw 3 people near the West entrance. Two were wearing black trench coats, and carrying guns. The third was wearing a white T-shirt, and no visible gun. The person in the white T-shirt was pacing back and forth about 5’ away from the two gunmen. He saw the gunmen shoot toward the ground and into the air. He saw them shoot one person near the top of the stair, and another at the bottom of the hill, then a third victim that was trying to run away across the parking lot. The shooter then shot at the witnesses on the soccer field. Billy observed actions of one shooter, which seemed to him to be a jammed gun. Don Arnold (page 666) Don states that he was on the soccer field, heard firecrackers, and turned toward the school. He saw a “short, pudgy” male in a white T-shirt that was throwing bombs onto the roof. He did not see this person having a gun. Don saw another male standing at the top of the hill, shooting toward the parking lot. Don had gone shooting with his father before, and knew the sounds of gunshots. He heard two different gunshot sounds – one was a shotgun, and the other was not. This shooter then turned and shot 5 or 6 time toward the soccer field using a shotgun. He saw that this shotgun was a pump shotgun. Pat Neville (page 1043) On 5/6/99, gave an account much like Don Arnold’s. He was by the soccer field, heard firecrackers, turned and saw two suspects. One in a black trench coat, tall, all in black, shooting people with a long gun. The other had a white T-shirt, blue jeans, no visible gun, and was throwing bombs onto the roof. Arthur Curtis (page 765) Arthur was also on the soccer field. He only saw 2 shooters. One was tall, with long hair, and wore a black trench, the other wore a white T-shirt. He saw the one in the black trench coat carrying a sawed-off shotgun. Arthur states that he could identify the one in the trench coat if given a picture. He saw them shoot at groups of people and at the soccer field witnesses. He reported that the one in the white T-shirt descended the stairs, fired a few shots, and went back up the stairs. Mike Kenny (page 938) Mike was also on the soccer field when here heard a noise like firecrackers. He looked and saw two people about 100 yards away. One was in a black trench coat and black pants and was holding a TEC-9, the other was about 10 feet behind him and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. They appeared to be together. The one in the trench coat was shooting, but Mike couldn’t tell if the one in the white T-shirt was shooting or not. The trench coat shooter shot at the players on the soccer field, who ducked and ran. Mike looked back, and saw explosions on the roof. He did not see anyone throw a bomb up there, but either of the two suspects he did see could have thrown a bomb to that location. Jason Brehm (page 718) On 5/5/99, Jason give the following information: Jason walked out the West main doors, and saw a figure in a black trench coat, leaning against a post outside the library North door. This person was a little shorter than 5'11", with a round face, and was not Eric or Harris. This person had a black hat turned backward, black boots, and one pants leg tucked into a boot. This person also has a large, full, black nylon bag with straps at his feet. Jason walked to the soccer field, heard firecrackers, and turned around. He turned, and saw the guy in the trench coat still there, with smoke rising beside him. He said this lone gunman walked down and back up the stair, shooting, then threw some bombs onto the roof, then ran back down the stairs and shot a different, louder gun, which Jason thinks was a shotgun. He thinks that was when Lance Kirkland was shot in the face. As Jason was running away, he saw a figure in a white T-shirt walking calmly from the parking lot towards the shooter. J-u-s-t-i-n Woods (page 1268) J-u-s-t-i-n was on the soccer field, and states that he was about 50 feet away, and saw two guys come out of the West entrance of the school. He identifies one shooter as Dylan, describes him as wearing a trench coat, a black hat, and no mask, carrying a handgun with a banana clip. He says that the other suspect wore a white shirt, black pants, boots, not hat, no mask, and more clean-cut that the other. This suspect had a shotgun, leaned against the fence and shot at people. Klebold was shooting at @#% and the other people on the soccer field as they ran away. He heard explosions, and saw smoke on the roof of the school. Bryan Stepp (page 1179) On 4/30/99, Bryan stated that he was playing soccer, and saw two guys near the West main entrance. One was wearing all black, black cargo pants, black trench coat, and a hat. The other suspect was wearing a black trench coat and a white shirt, and a hat. He saw the first suspect bend down and light fireworks or pipe bombs. When he stood up, Bryan could see he held a gun with a banana clip. He said that someone walked out of the West entrance door, and this suspect shot at this person, who then fell down. Bryan said that this suspect shot at students down the hill from him, and they all ran away except one, then the shooter shot at the student in the soccer field, who fled. When Bryan looked again, he heard explosions and saw smoke above the roof of the school. He also saw the banana-clip shooter shoot out the windows in the double doors of the West main entrance, then both shooters walked down the stairs toward the cafeteria, where they shot out a window. Evan Vitale (page 1243) On 4/20/99, Evan stated that he was in the Sr. parking lot, in a car that was about to leave school. He heard a “pop pop pop” and looked, and saw a kid on the top of the hill, shooting a rifle, about 30 shots. This gunman was wearing a white T-shirt, a trench coat, black pants, had dark hair and dark skin. He saw another individual in a dark trench coat, a black ball cap worn backwards, and long, blond hair, who was running up and down the stairs outside the West side of the cafeteria. As the car began pulling out, Evan noticed a third suspect. This person was stand by the wall next to the West side of the cafeteria. This suspect was holding a pump shotgun, and wore a white shirt and black pants. He was very sure this was not Dylan. Evan did not believe it possible for this suspect to be the same as the shooter on the hill, as it seemed that this would have required this person to move too far too fast. Trent Karnes (page 911) Trent was the driver of the car Evan Vitale was riding in. He was in the parking lot when he heard what he thought was someone roofing. It was 6 or 7 rapid gunshots. He turned and saw a person at the top of the outside stairs, holding a rifle, leaning on a fence, shooting down the hill at people. He was wearing a white dress shirt, black dress pants, and a thin black vest. Trent saw another person, about 6'2" or 6'3" tall, in a black trench coat, black pants, medium brown shoulder length hair, a black leather hat, and sunglasses. He saw this person running up and down the stairs, apparently looking at the victims between groups of shots by the first person. Trent estimated the distance at between 100 and 200 yards. He also mentions that there was a kid wearing a white T-shirt and faded blue jean shorts, standing, watching and smiling. He thinks this kid was not part of it, only that he thought it was a joke, as apparently did the other people he saw smiling as they ran. Mindy Pollock (page 1093) On 4/26/99, she gave this information to the FBI: She was about to get into Trent’s car with Evan, where she heard firecrackers. She looked, and saw a man running up and down the stairs, and another standing at the top of the stairs shooting people. She thought is a skit. She described the running man as wearing black pants, black shirt, a black hat backwards, a black trench coat, and carrying a silver handgun, which she did not see him shoot. She described the shooter as wearing black pants, a white shirt, black suspenders, a red hat backwards, and a huge black gun. THE CONCLUSIONS Summary table deleted here. I’ll edit in a reformatted version later. We know Harris was wearing a white T-shirt, but did the investigators come to the correct conclusion that every sighting of a suspect in a white T-shirt was Harris? Of the 15 sightings listed above, only 7 are consistent with Harris. Even with these 7, 3 are clearly inconsistent with the official timeline. (See detailed analysis of the witnesses’ accounts below.) Put another way: of the 14 people that witnessed these events, only 4 gave statements consistent with the description and activities of Eric Harris, as seen in the Sheriff’s Report. Most telling however, is that no less than 4 witnesses saw 3 suspects AT THE SAME TIME. These 4 witnesses were Chris Wisher, Jake Apodaca, Jonathan Cole, and William Arapkiles. This is very, very strong corroboration - corroboration that was either overlooked or ignored. Two others had strong evidence of a third suspect. These two were Don Arnold and Evan Vitale. It is certainly reasonable to assume that not every witness will see every suspect. So, for the sake of argument, lets suppose that there was a third, T-shirt wearing bomb thrower, and see how well the witnesses’ statements support this. Please note we will not be counting the failure to notice a suspect as an anomaly. This could easily be accounted for by a bad angle, or by the witness focusing on the more immediate threat rather than surveying the scene carefully. Since we know that Harris wore a white shirt as well, how can we tell the two apart? Well, Harris wore black pants, had a gun, and spent all of his time outside the school at the top of the hill, shooting people (according to the official report). The possible 3rd suspect, as reported by the 4 witnesses who saw 3 suspects at once, wore blue jeans, had no gun, and threw bombs onto the roof. Do any of the other witnesses report a shooter that more closely matches our hypothetical bomber? Lets examine each: Don Arnold: The description of the trench-coated shooter with a pump shotgun, shooting from the top of the hill, much more closely fits Harris that Klebold. Since the suspect in the white T-shirt does not match Klebold at all, he must be a 3rd suspect. Don hears two distinct weapons, but the suspect in the white T-shirt did not have a gun, which also strongly indicates a 3rd suspect. Pat Neville: The description of the trench-coated shooter much more closely fits Harris that Klebold. Which means the suspect in the white T-shirt must be a 3rd suspect. Arthur Curtis: The description of this suspect in a white T-shirt fits Harris very well. Mike Kenny: This report has little information, but Mike did notice the explosion, and since the suspect in the white T-shirt was wearing blue jeans and had no visible gun, it does give more support to the white T bomber theory. Jason Brehm: This muddled account is mostly likely a combination of Harris and Klebold. J-u-s-t-i-n Woods: A sighting of Harris without a gun seems most likely. Who threw the bombs is unclear. Bryan Stepp: Given the sparse details, it is most likely Harris Evan Vitale: The 3rd suspect could possibly have been Harris. Even if it was not, this suspect is not the white T-shirt bomber as described above. Trent Karnes: The shooting suspect in a white T-shirt is consistent with Harris. The other person mentioned seems most likely to be uninvolved Mindy Pollock: This suspect also is consistent with Harris. So, let’s try these groupings: Arthur Curtis, Jason Brehm, J-u-s-t-i-n Woods, Bryan Stepp, Trent Karnes, Mindy Pollock, and Evan Vitale do not report seeing this white T-shirt bomber. The person in a white T-shirt that they do see conforms well to Harris’s description. If we assume that the official timeline is erroneous in not having Harris go down the stairs, then they are very consistent. Don Arnold, Pat Neville, and Mike Kenny saw a suspect that very strongly supports the account of the bomber seen by Chris Wisher, Jake Apodaca, Jonathan Cole, and William Arapkiles. SUMMARY: There was a third accomplice, the White T-shirt Bomber. Switching to this theory instead of a two-shooter theory, the number of anomalous testimonies falls from 11 to 4. (Evan, Jason, Trent and Mindy all reported a shooter that may not have been Eric or Dylan). Of the 14 witnesses, four witnesses saw him simultaneously with Eric and Dylan, and 3 other witnesses saw him with one of the two shooters. Put in percents: No white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 73% With white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 28% If we factor out the anomalies that do not directly relate to the white T-shirt bomber, we have: No white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 50% With white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 0% None. Zip. Seven corroborating witnesses, four of whom saw 3 suspects simultaneously. Furthermore, none of the seven reports about the white T-shirt bomber contradict each other. And the theory much more closely aligns with the actual witnesses’ reports than does the official report.

this is a super weird thing to rave about but like, i bought these pencils when i saw wicked last week and they’re amaaaazig

The 101 Columbine witnesses and their reports (conspiracy)

According to the final report of the investigation, only two people–Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17–planned and executed the mass shooting at Columbine High School outside Littleton, Colorado, on April 20, 1999, leaving 15 dead and 23 wounded. But at least 101 eye- and ear- witnesses remembered it differently:

1) Chris Wisher, sophomore : He turned and saw two guys carrying shotguns, and wearing black trench coats. A 3rd guy wearing a white T-shirt and jeans was seen throwing bombs onto the roof.

2) Jake Apodaca, sophomore (653) He was at the soccer field, heard firecrackers. He turned and saw two guys carrying shotguns, wearing black trench coats and black T-shirts. A 3rd guy wearing a white T-shirt and jeans was seen throwing bombs onto the roof.

3) Jonathan Cole, freshman (749) He noticed two tall guys in black trench coats. He then saw a third male, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. This person looked over to the other two suspect, and yelled “GO!! GO!!”.

4) William Arapkiles, freshman (660) He states that he was at the soccer field, and heard firecrackers. He turned and saw 3 people near the West entrance. Two were wearing black trench coats, and carrying guns. The third was wearing a white T-shirt, and no visible gun. The person in the white T-shirt was pacing back and forth about 5’ away from the two gunmen.

5) Channel 7 News at 12pm(noon) on 4-20 (EP 21-244) “Reporter said that numerous witnesses he spoke to who were not named said they saw 3 gunmen.”

6) Lindsay Elmore, junior (332)“I believe there were 3 gunmen.” (340) “…there was so much movement that Elmore thought there was more than two people.”

I asked SMITH how sure she was that the person she saw and spoke with was (Redacted). I asked, “90 percent sure? 50 percent sure?” Her response was “100 percent sure.” I then showed SMITH a photo lineup which included a picture of Dylan KLEBOLD, and asked her if the person who walked past her was in the lineup.

“Grayson told me everything, this was all your doing?!” Damian screeched at his father.

Of course, Dick told Damian, the man just can’t keep a secret from his little brother at all. Bruce massaged his temples as he tried to get the Batcomputer up and running. Ever since the games started a few years back and the Justice League disappeared, the Batcomputer was left shut down in the Batcave, catching dust and growing spider webs.

“Damian,” Bruce began calmly, “We have to do everything we can to-“

“To what?! Send my beloved to her death?!”

Bruce’s eyebrows shot up and he faced his livid son, “No! Damian, God no! Of course not, (Y/n) is safe.”

Damian was heaving. The mere thought of you getting hurt today, the first day, made him want to rip the limbs off of any Court member who stands in his way. He tried to calm down, he trusts his father no matter what so he in took in a deep breath and let out a frustrated sigh, “So what is this damn plan everyone has knowledge about except me?”

As soon as Damian saw his father smirk, and hearing the sound of the Batcompter humming back to life, he knew that this plan was going to end well.

“Alright,” Bruce brushed the dust away from the keyboard and looked at the screen turning on, “here’s the plan, son….”

And it was at that moment when Damian realized, the Batman is finally back.

~

Everyone rushed to the living room just in time to watch the first day of the games. Alfred quickly turned the tv on as soon as it started. The grades for evaluation were out today to kick start the games.

“Wally West…” The Talon announced live, “…10/10.”

“Yes!” Dick cheered.

“Artemis Crock…10/10…(Y/n) (L/n)…..”

Everyone held their breath. The Talon was astonished when he read the results, “Unbelievable…” he whispered.

The suspense was killing everyone, especially Damian, please get a 10, please get a 10, he thought to himself.

“(Y/n) (L/n)…” The Talon repeated, “11.”

The entire room filled with cheers. Damian jumped up from the floor and raised his arms up in victory, “Yes!! That’s my beloved!”

“You really taught her well,” Tim said, “what exactly did you teach her?”

“Like I mentioned yesterday, Drake,” Damian grinned, “everything she knows…well, she doesn’t want to kill of course.”

Jason chuckled, “That’s cute, but can she at least hurt her enemies?”

“Really, Todd?” Damian scoffed, “I didn’t train her to be weak.”

Damian remembered what his father told him this morning. Today, the Hunger Games will be played out normally. If everything goes as planned and the League district members are all safe today, then there’s nothing to worry about.

Damian kept his eyes trained on the tv, he didn’t want to miss you for even just a second.

“It’s starting.” Dick whispered, but loud enough for everyone to hear.

The scene changed to an open field.

~

You were rushed into an elevator, not given any weapons. The only thing you could remember now was Oliver telling you to run as fast as you can and get your swords.

“Just don’t get killed.”

You rolled your eyes, “You make that sound so easy, Mr. Queen.”

“And don’t talk about the League, do you understand?” He whispered, “there are cameras everywhere, in the trees, in the rocks, in the freaking air-“

“Yeah, Oliver, I know.”

Your heart started banging in your rib cage as the elevator started rising. The ceiling opened and a bright light blinded you as you were slowly rising up to the Hunger Games arena. It’s only been a few days since you saw the sky but it feels like its been years.

You’re now finally in the field, looking around at all of the other players. You spotted Wally on your right and Artemis on your left, they both gave you a nod. Arsenio was at the far end of your right. You felt a sense of reassurance once you realized all of your enemies were far away from you as possible, leaving the League members closer to each other.

All the weapons were in the middle of the arena and you spotted your swords just waiting for you to make a move.

The count down to begin the games finally started. You were able to hear your beating heart with every passing second. As soon as the loud speaker reached 1, you raced as fast as you can towards your weapons.

Translating The Sadist Language Part2

“I hope you’re not expectin’ ta have a happy ending with just one main target”: I hope you are not expecting to have a happy ending with the brat i raised as my daughter because ya know i don’t want her to marry an unbearable fuck.

“Maybe getting skewered by the north, south, east and west heroines  from Ichigo 100% would suit you better?”: Dude you are the one who likes to molest every single thing you saw without a dick. Chill.


part 1

Creepypasta #1051: Crawl

Length: Long

I was renting a run down house in a low income neighbourhood in the west end of town. It was the kind of neighbourhood that is populated by small, independently run convenience stores every couple of blocks. The kind of stores that have shelves stocked with dusty old bags of pasta, and canned soup, veggies, and beans with faded labels, and strange tiny bottles of “ginseng shot” on the counter. People didn’t buy food at these stores. People bought lottery tickets, energy drinks, six packs of watery beer and cheap packs of cigarettes. Outside the shop doors they met up with hoodie-clad figures with shifty eyes to pick up dime bags or a gram or two of coke, even tranquilizers. These stores sold distraction; an escape from the mundane existence of those struggling below the poverty line.

The streets were dirty and full of litter and the houses were shabby and too close together. Permeating the smog filled air was the constant cacophony of sirens, thudding bass, revving engines, garbled noise from television sets, barking dogs and even the occasional shrill screech.

For three years I called this neighbourhood home as I dredged through long, miserable hours working in the legal department of a company that made gaskets. This company put more money into their legal department than it did into the safety of their employees, adopting the philosophy that it was cheaper to pay legal to get them out of nasty little lawsuits than to spend the millions it would cost updating their machinery. They scraped by on bare minimum safety standards and employed people like me to ensure that no claims had to be paid out.

It was a job that came with little sleep, too small of a pay check, and a heavy conscience.

While I was working at this company, the only place I could afford was this beat up little house in the West End. It was small, kind of drafty, and had the perpetual and inexplicable odour of wet dog kibble. It had dirty, peeling linoleum floors, badly patched drywall, and leaky plumbing. It was definitely full of mould and the space behind the walls was just about at capacity with mice.

It sounds like an absolute shithole, but if you saw it, it was actually much worse. The one thing this house had in the way of saving graces was the back porch. It was covered with a faded, striped awning that had once been red and white, but had taken on the colours of rust and too many cigarettes. This porch had enough space to fit an old threadbare sofa and a small wooden end table.

After a soul crushing ten hours at the plant, I would drag my weary body home, sit down on that sofa, light up a premium cigarette while sipping a glass of bottom-shelf red wine, and day dream about the day my real life would start.

It was just about the only time I had to relax. I could close my eyes and imagine I was sitting on the balcony of one of the colourfully painted town houses somewhere in a coastal town in Italy, a soft breeze ruffling my hair. The sounds of sirens and stereos would fade and be replaced by the sound of waves crashing, sea gulls calling, and music being played in the market place below. The stale, acrid smell of dog kibble would dissipate into the smell of marzipan, salt water and garlic, and the bougainvillea that dripped their fragrant blooms from hanging baskets all around.

i'm really curious about what defines west side boys and the other ones?? are west side boys just white boys lol? teach me these norwegian things please

halla! 

sorry this is a bit late! 

vestkantgutt does not mean white boy! i saw that one of the translations for det beste fra islam says that, and i get the reasoning behind it, but it’s not really accurate. “west side boys” refer to guys from the west end of oslo!

oslo is in many ways split into two parts, the east end and the west end. this wikipedia article actually explains it quite well! short story: the east side of oslo was the working class part of the town, whereas the west side has always been the home for the upper classes. after immigration to norway “took off” most non-western immigrants have also typically lived in the east side neighbourhoods. this divide has existed for over 100 years at least and the differences are huge for norway (that is to say, small compared to almost every other major city, but oslo west have some of the best living conditions in the country whereas oslo east have some of the worst.. but the difference between the best and the worst in norway is relatively small). 

hartvig nissen school is definitely in the west side of oslo, and i see a lot of articles about skam that claim that the show is only about rich kids from the west side of oslo. but when we look at the schools they went to before nissen (which is decided by where they live, whereas nissen you apply with your grades from lower secondary), eva, isak, jonas, ingrid, sara, even, mahdi and magnus are all from schools in the parts of oslo that are considered east side/working class (not to say that those parts of oslo can’t be expensive..). while sana, chris, vilde, p-chris and william are from schools in the west side. so technically elias would be a west side boy even though he is not white, and isak and magnus e.g. would not be west side boys, even though they are white. 

but when we talk about “west side boys”, or vestkantgutter, it usually probably means white rich boys. that is the stereotype. so like the penetrators. noora made fun of william for being a west side cliché once in one of my fave texts between them: 

W: What does the east side look like? 

N: Don’t know. I live in the city centre.

W: What’s the difference? 

N: You’re such a west side cliché

W: But seriously, do you have water and electricity? 

N: Lol

When Barry ran back to the future, he wasn’t surprised at how slow he was going once he reached there. He could practically feel the speed force leaving his body, slowing down immensely to the point where he was just a normal human again.

Part Two of Not Your Soulmate

Relationship: Lovers

Fandom: DC Comics

Character: Wally West

Wally and you were sitting on your bed watching the new Fear the Walking Dead on your laptop. Eating on your popcorn you heard Wally gasps, thinking it was from the show you did look over at him.

“Y/N!” He called making you looked over at him, your eyes widen. He was flickering in and out like kinda like the snow on the old TVs.

“Wally! What is happening?” You set your popcorn off your lap and was ignoring the mumble of the tv show on your laptop.

“I don’t kno-” His voice cut off and he disappeared completely.

“Wally!” You screamed hoping maybe he was playing a joke on you, your roommate came rushing into your room. You were still staring at the spot Wally had taken.

“Y/N?” Your roommate called as you looked over to her tears ran down your cheeks.

“I can’t see him. I can’t see Wally.”

I think the idea of Caitlin and Iris becoming friends next season is a bit absurd. Caitlin and Iris have never been friends, not really. They know each other through Barry. Caitlin is one of Barry’s best friends and that’s the only reason she knows/associates with Iris. Notice how when they found out Barry proposed, it was Barry she embraced and congratulated, not Iris? And then there’s the matter that last season, Caitlin wanted to help kill Iris as Killer Frost so she could help Savitar, who was actually her friend Barry. She doesn’t really care about Iris; she cares about Barry and Cisco, her actual friends. Seriously, can we see more Team Flash friendship? I’ve missed that. And honestly, if I want to watch a strong, cool female friendship, I will turn on Supergirl. Kara and Lena have one of the coolest female friendships I have ever seen. But Caitlin and Iris developing a friendship makes no sense. They have never really been that close and they don’t have anything in common, so what the hell would they talk about? Trust me, I’ve had friends who I had very little in common with and eventually we just drifted apart and stopped seeing each other so often because we just had nothing to talk about. We’d ask each other the same questions every day. Another thing that astounds me is the fact that they made Iris friends with Linda Park. I mean, did Linda really forgive Iris for meddling with her relationship with Barry? I don’t think I would have. The writers should just realize that other than Barry, Iris really doesn’t have any friends. Probably because Barry is blinded by his love for her and therefore unlike any other friends Iris has had, he doesn’t realize what a bitch she is. Because Iris isn’t the awkward nerdy kid who’s actually really cool and ends up making a lot of friends later in life even though no one understood him/her when they were younger, like characters like Barry, Cisco, and Caitlin. Iris was pretty well-liked in high school from what we saw, so what happened to all those friends? What about college friends? She has literally no friends outside of Barry and his friends. Even Linda Park was Barry’s ex-girlfriend. This is either just really bad writing, or Iris scared those friends off.
