Adagio

Requested by Anon: Ballerina Lily meets Street Dancer James. read on FF

In other news, this is my 30th jily fanfiction. Congrats to me having no life! 

In ballet, an adagio (uh da zhe-o) is a succession of slow, soft, lyrical and continuous movements.

It was while at his brother’s class at the Potter Contemporary Dance Studio that James first saw the lovely red haired ballerina. She was dressed warmly in thick tights, a woolen company jacket embroidered with pink ballet slippers, and furry boots. Red hair stuck out of a purple knit hat, the red strands matching the blush from the cold wind on her cheeks. James was in the back of the class (Sirius refused to let him at the front claiming it was nepotism) and kept getting flashes of her as she posted the flyer at the front of the classroom. If Sirius spotted her, he made no motion to say hello. She turned to face the group of dancers as quickly as the swooping feeling in his stomach when he saw her smile at the other girl she’d come in with.

The ballerina’s green eyes glanced once more around the classroom and landed on James for a few seconds. She offered him a smile before she and her brunette friend left the dance room. James tripped slightly, catching himself and fixing his movements from unyielding to flowing. Sirius shouted at James not to miss his steps and James allowed himself to focus on his ending rotation so as to keep Sirius off his arse.

As soon as the music was off and Sirius’ class was dismissed, James quietly walked over to where the girl had stood taping a poster to Sirius’ wall of motivation. It was covered in various flyers, posters from Broadway musicals, and pictures of past students. James found the flyer right next to the picture of Sirius and James in their mum’s production of The Sound of Music when they were eight years old. It was a bright orange flyer with a swan at the top, promoting Levinstown Ballet’s tryouts for Swan Lake.

“What were the pointes doing in here?”

Summary: He hears music playing through static-y speakers long before he actually gets anywhere near the school gates. The guitar riff is light and airy, and familiar in a way that James hates.

I'm so glad you liked the fic~! <3 And if you decide to draw all the Servamp costumes, that would be absolutely awesome! I originally imagined sneaking Hugh in as Harry Potter, because I thought it'd be funny. But I had no idea how to include that besides having him be quite proud of his costume until he saw Mahiru and then be like: "... you may win this round, insolent fool, but you will rue the day you made a mockery of me!"

I LOVED THE FIC SOOOOO MUCH. I was a giggling mess, it was so cute and perfect~ And it took me awhile…. but I drew their costumes from the fan fic as a token of my appreciation!! (you had some great choices @wonderfulchaos69 !! This was fun to do!) 

I loved the way you wrote Lily~ The ballerina fairy costume was too cute!!<3

Sailor Moon Ophelia and Tuxedo Mask Hyde was something I didn’t know I needed. ;w; BLESS THIS IDEA. 

Zombie Sakuya was great as well. :D (It was kinda hard to draw his zombie makeup but I like the outcome anyway!) poor Lily when he saw Sakkun lol…. ;w;

Just the mention of baby Tsubaki’s Winnie the Pooh costume made me collapse from the cuteness. Also that last minute Mafia Wrath idea was great, I laughed when she said:  “I’m joining the mafia for Halloween.”

Also here’s your Hugh idea as well!

THANKS A MILLION FOR THIS FIC!!! <3 now I must return to answering the rest of my asks in my inbox… TwT

If anyone is a fan of this au I highly recommend this fanfic! 

Marauders Dancers AU

(Okay bear with me here while i try to write 

So @betweenlightandshadows once mentioned this and after I ran into some folks I knew so my mind started running like a puppy who missed their human…)

Gryffindor Productions is a platform that students can use to come up with creative and unique dance performances. So the gang is up for creating a fusion of different styles and just an all-round badass and extremely diverse dance number. 

James - Specifically Desi! James as a classical bharatanatyam dancer. He was forced to take something up as a child so that he could “reconnect with his roots” or something like that. Initially it was whatever but after a while he loved it. The story telling, the grace and power that work with the music and beats and the bright jewelry on his tan skin with the fierce makeup. Red and gold dhoti and just James’ fingers showing crisp hand gestures (mudras) and having a very expressive face because of it. 

Ballerina! Lily - She studied ballet since she was extremely little and she wants to join the Hogwarts Dance Academy, so while she has classical dance in the bag, she needed something unique and different to give her that edge to get a scholarship. She finds out about the Marauders’  past performances mixing classical Indian dance with modern western hip hop and she’s intrigued. Ballerina Lily storms her way into the group and just dances to whatever music they throw at her with untouchable grace. 

Musical Prodigy! Sirius - Sirius claims that he cannot dance (he knows ballroom and he secretly learnt jazz but no one is allowed to know about it okay?) but he is a musical prodigy. He’s the reason the Marauders can get such flawless tracks that blend into each other like they were meant to. He can feel the emotions of the music and the dancers and he delivers music that leaves you with goosebumps. He has to work closely with the choreographers to make sure that they understand the tone and mood of the music and that the music compliments their individual style and personalities. 

Freestyle! Remus - Remus always wanted to be a dancer but never had the opportunity but he did have the internet. He learnt to dance on his own by practicing in front of a mirror. James “discovered” him on the street when he was performing to random songs that came on the radio. Remus just wants to dance and he will and can dance to almost anything and everything. He’s taken up his own mission titled ‘Mission: Make Padfoot Dance” and he will stoped at nothing to get Sirius to dance with him 

Tap Dancing! Peter - His mom has a dance studio and teaches tap dancing and Peter is an absolute natural at it. He’s super fast on his feet and super bouncy and everyone knows that despite his insecurities, when he’s dancing, there’s a smile on his face because that’s the one thing he’s good at and he knows it. None of the other Marauders can so it gives him something to be proud of. 

This is all a mess but a mess I wanted to share … @punkrockprofessor

Raily+Professional Dancers AU

The board I made earlier inspired something because I’ve really been struggling with this. Also, @incendiaglacies jogged my brain juices.

1. Lily is a ballerina. She’s never really in the main role in performances, but she still loves it and puts her heart and soul into every performance.

2. Ray used to be a dancer, but ended up stepping down and becoming a photographer instead. His latest assignment has him covering the upcoming performance of a group that includes Lily Stein.

3. Initially, Lily is not a fan of this man taking photographs of her as she tries to rehearse (he swears he’s taking them of everyone, but she feels he pays too much attention to her). Yes, he’s cute, but he’s also distracting.

4. Ray notices Lily staying after rehearsals more and more to perfect her performance. He offers his help, telling her he used to dance. She accepts with reluctance, but she finds herself falling into a good rhythm with him.

5. Afterwards, they go out for coffee, and Lily talks to Ray all about her secondary passion- nanotechnology. He hangs onto every word she says with interest that she’s rarely seen another person take.

Taylor has raised the profile for most of her friends.. Stop being so gullible if you think the GP heard of Karlie Kloss pre-Taylor. Karlie never had paps taking pics of her on the streets of NYC before Taylor.

Nobody is denying that her association with Taylor put Karlie more on the radar of the GP, but it’s when nasty lil Taylor stans come into this inbox saying shit like “Karlie was a nobody before Taylor became her friend..” then my Klossy garbage ass gets PRESSED! Aaah yes because poor, unforunate Karlie, who started an incredibly successful career in her early teenage years was but a mere street orphan before Taylor Swift (I’m sorry, Christ) saved her from a life of CERTAIN mediocrity!

Like, no, people that spew that shit hate the idea of Kaylor in any way, shape or form and are transparent (not to mention uneducated and UGLY) as hell.

Of course being associated with Taylor is going to make people in the general public more aware of who someone is, but let me see y'all drag Martha (or as you know her, Marsha) Hunt, Lily Aldridge, Kels Angelina Ballerina whatever the fuck, Jaime King and the rest of Taylor’s lesser known pals like you drag Karlie and then we’ll talk. Until then, you can take a seat sis.
