lol sorry i've been too busy to make things and stuff

So I got some bad news today. Health stuff wise. This is personal stuff that’ll likely have a big impact on my writing, but ultimately it’s still personal so I’m going to put it under a read more. I apologise in advance to people phone-browsing.

Keep the Hitter Honest

Rating: T

Relationships: Anders/Male Hawke

Warnings: none!

Summary: Garrett - ever the holiday lover - is looking forward to spending Valentine’s Day with his boyfriend…or he would be, if Anders hadn’t forgotten about it. 

Part of my Caught Looking world. Takes place 3 years after the main story. 

I promised Valentine’s fluff for these two, so here it is!

Edit: Read on AO3


“Please don’t make me go to work,” Garrett moaned, burying his face in Anders’ hair.

“Hand me your phone, I’ll quit for you.”

Anders couldn’t see him, but he could feel Garrett grinning against his head. No matter how many times they had this discussion and Anders assured him he didn’t need to work, Garrett refused to quit.

“I can’t deprive the world of my beautiful buns,” Garrett sighed dramatically, rolling onto his stomach. Anders took the opportunity to reach out and squeeze his now prominently displayed bare ass.

“No one should taste them but me.”

Garrett had the nerve to look scandalized, swatting Anders’ hand away.

“I meant my cinnamon buns, thank you,” he scoffed. “But I’ll let Bodahn know you think we should use my ass as an advertising tool.”

Anders snorted, giving his boyfriend a small shove.

“You need to get up, Mr. Advertising Tool, or you’re going to be late.”

“But I don’t wanna,” Garrett groaned again, hiding his face in his pillow. When he didn’t move after a few moments Anders yawned and made himself more comfortable, assuming the conversation was done.

“Did you have any plans for tomorrow?”

Anders peeked a sleepy eye open to see Garrett now looking at him expectantly.

“No?” Anders replied, frowning. “Should I?”

Hurt briefly flickered across Garrett’s face but then he shrugged, trying to look nonchalant.

“I mean, it’s Valentine’s Day, so I didn’t know…”

Anders sighed as he rolled onto his back, covering his face with his arm.

“Fuck.”

anonymous asked:

Hi, I have been busy with exams so I've been away from Tumblr (or any social media for that matter) for a while now. Can you please explain to me whatever happened with TMZ? They had begun setting up the denial story but then nothing happened after that. Could you help explain why, what the purpose was, or what the next step is? (I'm sorry that this isn't relevant to the whole bandage thing from today, but I was really hopeful the denial was going to happen earlier and now I'm confused)

We all hoped the denial was going to happen earlier, anon, but they seem to be drawing this out. We’re not sure exactly why. It could be because the contract is in force longer than we anticipated and they’re waiting that out; it could be for some other reason entirely. I don’t think we have enough information about their contractual status and what’s going on behind the scenes to know why the timing has been this drawn out.

So, TMZ has hit the high points of this story, but there have been something like three weeks between each new plot development. First, you had the constant papping right after the birth and the consistent reminders that he hadn’t taken a paternity test. Then there were the stories about custody and support conflicts. This set up the idea that Louis had limited access to Freddie and that Briana was demanding a lot more money than Louis was willing to pay. This also set up the idea that Louis’ lawyers would insist he take a paternity test before proceeding with negotiations. The stories that came out after this also set up the conflict between Danielle and Briana, with Briana supposedly objecting to Danielle being around Freddie because she didn’t want him bonding with another woman at his age (never mind that Briana has changed at least her hair color since them). These stories were followed by Louis going out every night, traveling all over, and getting seen with Danielle consistently, all behavior that would seem to be in conflict with the idea that Louis was trying to make himself the perfect father figure for a custody battle. We all thought that was going to lead to a story that either he had already taken the paternity test or that Briana was so upset she was going to force this court, which would require a paternity test. Neither happened. Instead, TMZ (Dax, in particular) started talking about whether babygate is all a hoax. It was mocking in tone, but they laid out a lot of the evidence and consistently drew attention to all of the fakeness of everything (I called it a “faux-mock,” which didn’t catch on to my disappointment lol). Buzzfeed also picked up on this and had a long article on how it could be a hoax, which was read by a lot of people in the general public who agreed that things seemed fishy. Both TMZ and Buzzfeed referenced Larry in all this coverage. After a week or so of this, we got pap pics of Louis with an actual baby. TMZ used this as evidence that babygate was “solved” because that was clearly a real baby. However, (1) Harvey pointed out that could be anyone’s baby, there’s no evidence it was Louis’ or Briana’s, (2) even Dax noted that he doesn’t know if Louis is the father b/c there’s been no paternity test, and (3) they haven’t shut up about it – TMZ has consistently been tweeting about babygate being “solved.” You’d think they’d move on if that were true. Also, Buzzfeed did a follow-up where they pointed to the birth certificate and said that that means it isn’t a hoax, but most of the people who read their initial article didn’t see the follow-up and lots of people agree that it could be forged. But as it stands there is a real baby, so the idea of a paternity test is plausible. They planted the idea of it being a hoax in the GP’s minds, but provided enough evidence to go the paternity test route.

So, this is where we currently stand with TMZ, until they pick up on the bandage pics, if they do. They’ve “solved” babygate, though they keep talking about it. And Harvey isn’t convinced. It’ll be interesting to see if and how they pick up on the bandage pics. The Daily Mail has also been regularly publishing a lot of this stuff, too, so that’s another source to keep an eye on.

We don’t know why it’s been done this way but I think there are a few options: (1) they’ll just go with the paternity denial story, but having raised all the suspicious stuff, they’ll trust that people have enough information to understand that it was all fishy, especially if and when Louis comes out, or (2) they’re intending to do a full exposé of the stunt, and probably cast blame on Simon and OT, either soon or in the future (like when Louis and Harry come out). They’ve put enough information out there that they can trust that people will be able to figure out this was all a hoax, but whether they actually ever explain it is the question.

If you want to see the specifics of what TMZ has done @tellmethisisnotlove has a great timeline here. I think I hit all the high points, but I probably forgot something because I was going from memory.
