long distance skating

My dearest Tumblr-ers, I did it. I completed an 82.4 mile ride from Framingham, MA to Providence, RI and back. I left at 9am, and made it home at 9:30pm. It took me only 8.5 hours of actually skating, though. This was a day of many things for me. It is my first planned-route trip that I completed from start to finish. It is my newest single day pushing record. Its my third time crossing state lines by longboard. I’m on cloud nine. Thanks everyone here for your support- I did it.

sheith classical music au

so we have the dance au, the long distance au, the ice skating au… it wouldn’t be much of a push to have a classical music au, right? like please gimme all

  • Keith plays the classical violin and he’s really AMAZING. He’s a prodigy. His parents are so proud of him. Those rich family type.
  • He’s made a name and held solo concerts himself–always sold out. He loves classical music so much it’s the only thing he does. He breathes it.
  • After one of his solo concerts, he’s going back to their hotel. He’s inside his parents’ car when suddenly they crashed. Both his parents died and Keith… Keith turned blind and he’s got a broken arm.
  • Keith cried like he was a little kid again. HE JUST LOST EVERYTHING. He’s now an orphan but he’s 19 so he got his parents inheritance. He gets by. There’s nothing much he can do anyway with a broken arm. He still lives in their house and the house staff still takes care of him. 
  • Now here comes Shiro. Shiro plays the electric violin. 
  • Coran is Shiro’s mentor and Keith has been under him as well. So Coran goes “You’re losing your passion, Shiro. I want you to go to this address and meet this person. Get to know him.”
  • So there Shiro was, in front of a huge mansion. “Kogane Family” it says on the front gate. “Huh. Must be a loaded guy.”
  • Butler lets him in and he was pretty much expecting to see an old guy in his mid 30′s since Coran spoke highly of the dude–and god huge mansion bro. He was not expecting a guy 2 years younger than him.
  • “Who are you?” Keith asks cause honestly who the hell was he
  • “Um, Coran sent me here. You might know him since you–”
  • “I know him.”
  • “Oh, okay. I’m Shiro btw. Well, I play the violin and he told me I might find my passion again if i met you. For inspiration and all.”
  • Keith gets angry. “Are you bloody inspired now?!!”
  • Shiro is surprised. “What do you mean?”
  • “…Keith.” Shiro didn’t know and he didn’t know how to react either
  • “Yeah go find the broken violinist who took over the world and captured a lot of people’s hearts. Go mock him and prove you’re better than him.”
  • “Keith, I don’t think that’s–”
  • “I CAN’T SEE, SHIRO. I CAN’T SEE ANYTHING. I. AM. BLIND. My doctor said I will never be able to play again AND THAT… THAT…” Keith breaks down and cries.
  • Shit shit shit. Shiro approaches him and just hugged him because wow this guy is so broken and Shiro did not expect this AT ALL
  • “I can’t play the violin anymore,” Keith sobs. “I can’t.” sobs. “I want to but I can’t. I LOVE PLAYING THE VIOLIN.” Keith adds softly over and over
  • Shiro didn’t know what to do but he visited Keith EVERY DAY who was all “You’re here again?!” “I brought my electric violin!” “So pretentious! Everyone knows the classical one is the best!” “You haven’t even tried it yet.” “Well, idk because I CAN’T, SHIRO FYI. You’re a shitty player anyway” and Shiro laughs because friendly banter is a good sign
  • The thing is, Shiro would play and Keith would go “Wrong. Do it again.” 
  • They spend a lot of time together that Shiro is so glad that Keith can’t see him blushing when Keith is laughing OH BOY THIS IS BAD
  • One day Keith goes “I want to play again.”
  • “You will.” Shiro didn’t miss a beat
  • “But my arm and my—”
  • “Prove to them that your disability couldn’t stop you from doing what you love, Keith. You want to play the violin again? DO IT.”
  • Keith smiles and Shiro is like OH DAMN MAN I THINK I AM IN LOVE
  • “Okay, it might take a while and I need to convince my doctor and I… can you… um… would you like to–”
  • “I’d love to play with you.” Shiro finishes

Oh damn. Okay. OKAY. I will draw this. Just wait and see. OTL I need to have Keith playing the violin SO BAD.

Long Distance (A Hayes Grier Imagine)

Can I have a Hayes Grier imagine where you guys have a long distance relationship?

This was for an anon, I hope this is okay! -Ashley


Long Distance

You sighed as you scrolled through your Instagram feed. There had been a party last night and everyone was posting about it, including your boyfriend, Hayes. You hadn’t seen him in over two months and it honestly made you sad seeing all the fun he was having while you were stuck at school.

He was still in Los Angeles, but you were at school in Seattle. It was hard living so far from him, but you had gotten into the college you had been dreaming about since you were little and you weren’t going to let that opportunity go. Even if it meant living over 1,000 miles away from your boyfriend.

“Some of us are going out tonight, do you wanna come?” Your roommate asked, “Y/N? Helloooo?”

You snapped out of your reverie, “Uhh, no. Not tonight.”

“Are you sure?” She asked.

“Yes! Go and have a good time, I think I’m just gonna watch some Netflix tonight.” You told her.

“Alright, if you say so.” She said and started to get ready to go out.

You looked at instagram more. The party that everyone was posting about was for Halloween and it was at Dillon Rupp’s house so it was huge and tons of people were there. You decided you needed to stop looking at the pictures and get some homework done before you binge watched something on Netflix. You went to your desk and pulled out some of the homework you were assigned, then your roommate left.

You looked out the window. It was raining, which was no surprise. It was always raining here. Definitely different than the sunny southern California that you were used to. You were getting nowhere with the homework, so you decided to turn some movie on Netflix. However, you realized halfway through you had no clue what was going on.

You gave up and decided to call Hayes.

“Hey!” He said when he answered the phone.

You felt your eyes start to tear up just hearing his voice, you had no clue why. “Hayes.” You smiled.

He knew something was wrong immediately, “Y/N? What is it?”

“It’s nothing. How was the party last night?” You asked.

“It was fun, it was at Dillon’s so it got kinda crazy like it usually does.” He laughed and you laughed too, thinking about the times you’ve had parties at Dillons.

“That sounds fun.” You told him.

“Y/N, I know something’s wrong. Please tell me.” He said in a soft voice.

You bit your lip, you didn’t know why you were feeling like this. You had been so good these past two months, but for some reason right now, you were feeling restless and sad. “I… I miss you. So much Hayes.” Finally, the tears broke through.

“Y/N!” He sounded surprised, “I miss you too! I thought everything was okay up there!”

You tried to stop sobbing so you could talk, but it was no use. You felt pathetic. “Y/N, Y/N… Shhh… It’s alright.” He said, soothing you. “Just breathe, baby.”

You took a deep breath, “I’m sorry I’m acting like an idiot.” You finally calmed down enough to talk.

“You’re not an idiot! I miss you too. So so much.” Hayes told her. “I can’t wait to see you.”

You smiled, “Me too Hayes.”

“I don’t know if I’ll be able to control myself when we come to get you from the airport.” He said, cheekily and it made you giggle. “There it is. I’ve wanted to hear that laugh.”

“You know how to make me feel better.” You told him.

“Good.” He said, “I don’t want you to be sad. You’ll feel better when you come home for Thanksgiving.”

Your face lit up in realization, you had forgotten that you were going to be going home for Thanksgiving. “Oh yeah!”

“I bet you’ve been missing the sun.” He said.

“I think more than I’ve been missing you.” You said, playfully and he laughed.

“I love you Y/N.” He laughed.

“I love you too, Hayes.”

“Are you busy or can you talk? I just wanna hear your voice.” He said and she could tell he was blushing.

“Of course I can talk.” You said, laying back on your bed, glad to be talking to your wonderful, long distance boyfriend.


Framingham, MA to Providence, RI and Back!

Here it is guys! This is a pretty intimate look at who I am in primal beast mode. I put my heart and soul into this skate, learned a lot about what it takes to complete a goal, and set a new personal record.

Everyone’s support means the most to me. Being me, I wouldn’t do things like this if I didn’t have amazing followers and friends to encourage me to set the bar higher.

I have high hopes for the future. Please share, like and comment!
