last of the teddy girls

tainted, i'm telling you•part one

a/n: a teddy boy! Shawn au! Check out his GQ Italia interview, he talks about them. I don’t write in proper English here (use a lot of slang, w/c London talk) so message me if you need more explanation lovelies!

synopsis: Shawn’s part of the Teddy boy subculture of 1960s North London. He’s got a girl (but kinda doesn’t) and a few mod rivals who want him gone. He just wants to smoke and listen to some Elvis with his girl, but the worlds got other plans for him.

i just remembered that joe gilgun not only gifted samara lee (the wee girl that co-starred with him in the last witch hunter) a teddy bear with a note saying “to the sweetest girl on set. love ya mate” but also gave her a plate with huge cookies, three packages of chocolate and strawberry milk and two butterfly shaped lollypops. this man is a true blessing!

Honestly, only Leon could get a new potential love interest while dressed as a humanized Fre/ddy Fa/zbe/ar in a Chu/ckie Ch/eese at 2 in the morning on Friday the 13th.
