made this especially for chris :3

Yuri!!! On ice headcanons

1- Viktor uses the “don’t you know who I am” excuse to get out of bad situations
2- Viktor hides all of the alcohol in the house before competitions so Yuuri can’t get too crazy (though he’s not opposed to it)
3- Hiroko (Yuuri’s mum) showers any of the skaters (especially Viktor) with gifts when they go to Japan to visit because they made her son happy
4- Yuuri likes calling Viktor “Vitya” because it makes him blush and look really cute
5- Yurio talks to his cat as practice for talking to Otabek because he’s too embarrassed to talk about his feelings with anyone else
6- Yuuri and Yuuko used to have sleepovers all the time when they were younger
7- Mari used to steal Yuuri’s Viktor posters just to annoy him
8- Chris and Phichit had a bet as to who would make the first move out of Yuuri and Viktor (note: Chris won and Phichit had to pay him 20 moneys)
9- Viktor and Georgi were really good friends (there is only a day between them v- Dec 25 & g- Dec 26)
10- Chris and Viktor probably had sex with eachother as an experiment but had 0 romantic feelings for eachother when they were younger
11- Yurio is pansexual (this one is my opinion and I have no idea how it came into my head but I just think it’s cute)
12- If anyone except Yuuri touched Viktor’s hair he would have to refrain himself from slapping them across the face (or would actually slap them if they were friends)
13- Yurio stops in the street to pet stray cats
14- When fans stop Viktor for photos but say they don’t want Yuuri in the photo, Viktor refuses to take the photo
15- Jj stalks Yurio on social media and cries every time he sees him with Otabek because he wants to be his only friend
16- Mickey hates Mila because she is dating his sister and for no other reason
17- Seung-Gil goes to gay bars a lot
18- Emil gets mistaken for being older a lot so never gets asked for ID when he tries to go anywhere even if he isn’t old enough while Mickey does even though he is older
19- Phichit tried to attach a camera to Makkachin’s collar so he could see what Viktor and Yuuri were up to 24/7
20- Makkachin wishes he had earmuffs so he could block out the noise Viktor and Yuuri make at night ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Sebastian Stan x Hemsworth!sis Request

Hello dear!! Could you please write an imagine where the reader is married to Sebastian Stan and she’s a Hemsworth, and she gets her first Oscar so they’re all super proud of her?? I loooove your blog!! <3


You clicked your nails together as the car got ready to stop on the red carpet. “Hon,” Sebastian grabbed your hands so you stopped your nail clicking, “if you keep messing with your nails you’ll get highlighted on E! For having the worst nails of the night,” he chuckled.

“I can’t help it. I’m nervous. This is my first Oscar nomination.”

“I know, and I’m so proud of you,” he squeezed your hand. “I’d kiss you but I don’t want to ruin your makeup. Listen to me, tonight is going to be great! Whether you win or not you are nominated for an Oscar, something only the best of the best get nominated for so, win or lose, you are amazing and I love you.”

“Thanks, Seb. You’re amazing and I love you too,” you gently kissed his lips just as the car came to a halt. Your signal to get ready to hit the red carpet. The driver opened the door and Sebastian stepped out, holding a hand out and helping you from the SUV. You walked with Sebastian and paused for solo and couple pictures, and a couple of interviews. You even ran into your brother, Chris, and your sister-in-law and posed for a group shot with them. Finally, you, your husband, and your family, made your way inside and to your shared table.

You didn’t even notice you were clicking your nails again until Sebastian laughed to himself and, again, held your hand in his. The lights dimmed and the show started. La La Land won for Best Picture. Ryan Gosling won for Actor in a Leading Role. And now your category was up, Actress in a Leading Role.

“With so many amazing woman in one category I’m sure finding a winner was hard for everybody. Let’s hear who our nominees are. Isabelle Huppert…Ruth Negga…Natalie Portman…Emma Stone…Meryl Streep…and Y/N Hemsworth-Stan.” The envelope was produced. “Let’s see who the winner is. The winner for Actress in a Leading Role is……Y/N Hemsworth-Stan.”

You gasped at your table and didn’t stand up until Sebastian stood up and reached for your hand, bringing you up with him. He wrapped you in a hug and you smiled and fought back tears, still in disbelief. Elsa and Chris hugged you and, after the love was shared, you made your way up to the stage in front of all your peers and coworkers.

You were handed your Oscar as you reached the podium. “I…I…I…”you stuttered. “Apparently I’m speechless,” you made the audience laughed. “I can’t believe I’m here right now receiving this award. I’d like to thank the people that went to see the movie and the amazing writer and director. I’d like to thank my parents and my brothers who pushed me to follow my dream of being an actress and I’d especially like to thank the love of my life; my amazing husband Sebastian Stan. Thanks for supporting me and putting up with me making you rehearse lines with me until 3 in the morning. I love you so much,” you said right to him.

The music queued you and you made your way off the stage and back to your seat. Your family yelled and cheered as you got back to your seat. “Congrats, little sis,” Chris and Elsa congratulated you.

“Thanks guys,” you walked over to your husband who kissed you long and hard.

“I am so proud of you. You deserve it, Babe.”

You leaned comfortably into him as the worries were all gone, “Thanks Stan.”

You knew that people made bad choices but the fact that you were saving the same 3 people more than once a week said something, you were a little worried when they all ended up in the same place, you figured Chris was tracking you and you knew that both Kol and Jeremy had history in Mystic Falls but with the Mikaelsons fighting against the Salvatores you were stuck in the middle and this time you were taking a side, you knew the Jeremy had laid a trap for Kol and you knew that it was going to work, you could see possible futures and the on that had the highest probability of succeeding was the one that you would see and that was Kol going up in flames literally. You were waiting across the road from the house when you heard a voice “What are you doing here!?” You jumped and looked over at Jeremy.
“Making sure that you don’t do something stupid.” You answered.
“He’s not a nice person.” Jeremy defended and you rolled your eyes.
“No one is.” You answered.
“What?” He asked.
“I don’t matter just go home, Jeremy.” You answered.When you saw Kol move into the house for the second time that was when you took action, you walked into the house stopping the arrow from hitting him in the leg and then you stood in front of him. “Bad idea.” You said.
“What killing them? I think it’s wonderful idea darling.” Kol smiled as he tried to push passed.
“It would be better if they didn’t have a white oak stake.” You said and he looked at you.
“I’ll take my chances.” Kol glared as he walked off.
“I should just get a new day job.” You groaned as you walked into the kitchen, you looked to see that Jeremy had the stake and you put up a barrier between him and Kol, Elena looked over at you and glared, you snapped her neck before she could do anything and then walked over to Jeremy. “Gimme that.” You ordered and he shook his head, the stake disappeared from his hands. “Chris.”
“Yes?” He asked smiling from where he was leaning against the kitchen door frame.
“Stake now.” You ordered and he smiled.
“Only if you tell me how you know who to save and when they’re in trouble,” Chris smirked and you sighed.
“I see possible futures.” You answered. “You three are always in flux it’s annoying.”
“You don’t mean that.” Kol smirked, you love seeing my perfect face.“
"Hmm.” You hummed. “Your brother will be here soon be nice.” You ordered.
“You need to stop picking fights.” You pointed at Jeremy “and you need to get home, your parents need you.” You said to Chris who threw you the stake and disappeared.
“Wait you’ve been around since I was made a vampire.” Kol frowned.
“I was cursed, made a deal to save someone that I loved and I still had to watch them die.” You answered. “Never worth it.”
“What’s your name?” Jeremy asked.
“No wouldn’t you like to know.” You smirked before ushering Kol out the door and disappearing.

1000 FOLLOWERS CELEBRATION POST!

Originally posted by asdarknessfell

A while ago, @thecrownedrose and I discovered that we had been chasing each other in follower numbers for a while, so we decided that if we hit 1000 followers within a week of each other, we would join together to do a big celebration. We did it, and so, quite a lot later, this is that celebration! 

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING: 

While I was posting Cherchez la Femme, I discovered that my wifey was really, really good at making moodboards, unlike myself. She’s the one that made the moodboard for each post of CLF. So we decided to combine drabbles and moodboards. She does the moodboards and writes the majority of the fluff, and I write all of the angst and smut, and all the Winterboneless fluff, more on that later. 

THIS WILL BE GOING ON FOR TWO WEEKS. Saturday, September 2–Saturday, September 16.

Sound good so far?

HERE ARE THE RULES: 

1. If you request a drabble OR a moodboard, you may have up to three (3).

2. If you request a drabble AND a moodboard, you may have up to two (2)

3. Lucy and I will be in communication for the whole celebration, so you can request it on either blog and we’ll share with each other.

4. PLEASE stick to the limit. Lucy teaches small humans for a living and I am currently working part time and trying to find a better job, so we’re busy. That’s why this is going on for two weeks instead of just one. That, and 99% of the time, I have absolutely terrible wifi. 

5. NO MINORS IF YOU WANT SMUT. DO NOT GO ON ANON AND REQUEST SMUT IF YOU ARE A MINOR. IT IS ILLEGAL AND WE WILL NOT DO IT. 

6. Everything will be posted (or reblogged) on both blogs. I will be tagging each drabble/moodboard as “1000″ and with the name of the character most prominently featured. So if you request a moodboard and a drabble with Winterboneless, the tag will read “1000 Winterboneless”.

7. WE WILL NOT REPEAT REQUESTS.

7. DO NOT REPOST THE DRABBLES OR THE MOODBOARDS. PLEASE CREDIT US, ESPECIALLY IF YOU USE THEM IN A LARGER FIC. It’s fine if you do, just say “made by” or “inspired by” and tag us. No big deal–we’ll love it.

CHARACTERS WE CAN DO:

1. Bucky Barnes (MCU)

2. Chase Collins (The Covenant)

3. Carter Baizen (Gossip Girl)

4. Lance Tucker (The Bronze)

5. Chris Beck (The Martian)

6. All of the Avengers (MCU)–THIS INCLUDES T’CHALLA AND SAM

7. Guardians of the Galaxy (MCU)

8. Ivar (Vikings)

*If you see a character that’s not on this list, run it by either of us and we’ll see what we can do.

A NOTE ON WINTERBONELESS:

We are aware that we are going to be getting A LOT of requests for Winterboneless because it seems to be Tumblr’s new pet pairing. We are begging you, PLEASE try to remember that this is not the only pairing we can do. Winterboneless is basically the reason rule 7 exists (there are so many people that like it, there are definitely going to be a few repeats, and we will not do the same request twice!). PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give us variety. We have lots of characters to play with here.

We love every single one of you and we’re both hoping to give back! OUR FOLLOWERS ARE AWESOME! 

sup-geek  asked:

Do you have any thoughts or speculations on the Bros' college days?

Well, there’s this… ;D

Speculating about the brothers’ college years is interesting, because we have more information about what the real-life Kratts did during that time.  I generally accept those experiences as canon except where they conflict with the existing canon (I’ve tweaked the details slightly so that it makes sense for their present-day selves to be creature adventuring WK-style rather than creating educational wildlife programs).

So we have Martin at Duke University (which should effectively quash the ridiculous notion that he’s not exceptionally smart, or that he didn’t do well in school) and Chris attending Carleton College, a small liberal-arts school in Minnesota.  Both knew that they wanted to do something to promote wildlife conservation, but they started off with some different ideas for how to go about it.  Martin initially planned to be a conservation veterinarian, with a focus on reproduction among endangered species, while Chris had some interest in conservation policy and advocacy.  Eventually, however, both brothers came to feel that they could have a greater impact by learning about endangered and threatened species in a more in-depth way than had been done before, then using that knowledge both to find new ways to help them survive and to educate and inspire others.  This career path also had the advantage of providing sufficient scope for their boundless energy and curiosity, as well as allowing them to forge amazing connections with the creatures that they love so much.

After graduating with a degree in zoology, Martin took a job as an assistant to one of his professors, who was conducting a research study in Costa Rica.  He decided to stay for a few months after the project was completed and do some creature studies of his own, and Chris, perhaps surprising himself more than anyone, decided to take the fall semester off and join him.  

It was during the Arribada, amid those long hours of waiting on the beach for the turtles to arrive, that the idea began to take shape. You know… we could do this.  You and me.  Travel around and study different animals, really get into their world… learn what it’s like to really BE the creature. … We could get a whole new level of understanding. … We could figure out how to really help them. … And if people understand more about them, they’ll want to help them, too…  

Chris went back to school with renewed enthusiasm and determination.  He’d always had the desire to learn everything he could about animals and their habitats, but now that he had a definite vision, it all seemed more real.  He founded an on-campus organization for biodiversity to bring together like-minded students and start spreading awareness, and took every opportunity to get out in the field.  He was even able to join Martin on two more of his research trips – trips that they’d both started to think of as apprenticeships for when they would be out conducting research of their own.  Martin, meanwhile, could not wait for Chris to graduate so they could get started.  It felt just like when he was 6 or 7 and begging his mom to let Chris come exploring with him, only to be told that he was still a little too young.  Finally, the day came, and Chris’s “graduation present” to them both was a fellowship that provided promising graduates with funding for a year of independent foreign research and travel.  The brothers headed to Peru… then Brazil… then Australia.  They were on their way!


And here are a few little tidbits that are purely my own invention:

1. The decision to go to a school five hundred miles away from home was more difficult for Martin than he let on.  He wasn’t particularly nervous about being on his own – in fact, he viewed college as an exciting new adventure – but he’d always been close to his family, and he knew he would miss them.  And then there was Chris, of course.  He knew his brother would be all right – he had friends, family, sports, and other things to help see him through – but he couldn’t help but feel as though he were abandoning him.  In the end, though, he felt that it was the right place for him, and that he owed it to both of them to get the absolute best creature education he could, and so off he went (vowing to call home often).

Chris, being only 14, was less sure that he would be fine, but it turned out to be true, and the realization provided a valuable boost to his confidence.  And as much as he loved and looked up to his brother, he also found that it was easier to carve out his own identity – something that had been a bit of a struggle for him – with him slightly removed from the picture.  That same desire later influenced his choice to attend a small northern college rather than a large southern university, but not his course of study – their shared passion for creatures was something that he cherished, and he never considered studying anything else.

2. Sometime during his sophomore or junior year, Martin bought himself a beat-up little blue hatchback for a couple hundred dollars.  It only worked about every other week, but when it was running, he’d use it to give his friends rides or to go out hiking or exploring, and also for the occasional trip home over a holiday weekend or semester break.  The car made some of his family members a little nervous, especially on those long drives, but somehow Martin always made it in one piece.  Asked about it now, Chris just shakes his head.  “That car ran on pure optimism,” he says, laughing.  He can’t deny, though, that some of the auto repair skills his brother learned from that old bucket of bolts have come in pretty handy during their field work, especially in the pre-Tortuga days.

3. Chris had an absolutely terrible roommate his freshman year, but he didn’t really tell Martin about it until much later, partly because he didn’t want him to worry, and partly because he couldn’t completely rule out the possibility that Martin might drive up there and take him out.  Big brothers can be unpredictable like that.  XD  

Just talking to @stillgoingstrongforeternity about the potential Disney purchase of Fox’s movies. And I have to wonder, if it happens:

1. Would this have any adverse affect on the TLOS movies getting made?

2. If they do go forward, will they have the right to change any of the terms agreed upon? Most importantly Chris’ creative control in writing and directing?

3. Could this have any impact on any potential deal Fox made with C&D?  I just hope, if there is a deal, it is iron clad. Especially if this could include cable channels including FX.

I admit when I wrote this I thought it was only the movie division.  It is greatly concerning that FX could be a potential part of this. 

I have to say, I hope no such deal happens right now. 

Was it a kiss? Yes, of course!

I know there’s been some debate on whether or not it was really a kiss, since no one actually explicitly saw their lips touch. 

But I’m strongly against the whole, “they did not kiss” argument, and here’s why!

When Yuuri was breaking down, Victor was wondering how he could calm Yuuri down. He asked casually, ‘should I just kiss you or something?’

This is significant for a few reasons.

1) Victor considered kissing as a way to help Yuuri calm down.

2) It was explicitly stated and a clever use of foreshadowing.

3) I’m not sure on the direct translation, but by using the word ‘just’ was fascinating in itself, and here’s why:

Victor says “Should I just kiss you?” casually, because kissing clearly wouldn’t do enough to calm Yuuri down. Kissing him to shut him up would not be the way to effectively calm Yuuri down or make him feel better. It was just another way for Victor to get the truth out of Yuuri, which he blurted out immediately after.

That is yet another indicator that their love is deeper than simple romance, that it is more than that. A kiss is what a simple lover might do, and they might not go the next step to really care and comfort their partner. Victor cares about Yuuri too much- he’s not going to hush Yuuri. He wants to hear Yuuri’s heart.

Now, on to the moment.

First of all, the two rush to each other- Victor running to the proper location, Yuuri looking around for him frantically, then quite literally scrambling to Victor as soon as he spots Victor again.

We then hear the music halt to silence to emulate a sense of breathlessness. This is clearly to help the viewer feel that heart-stopping, breath-taking moment directly before a kiss like this one. It goes silent, reflecting the way Yuuri’s mind must blank for those split few seconds. This was very intentional and 100% meant for the moment of a kiss.

So first, we get this incredible visual of their lips, hardly inches apart, parted and shiny. Yuuri is especially flushed (from the skating, of course), and his eyes are wide with shock. Victor looks incredibly seductive in this shot.

There’s a frame of Yuuri’s complete shock as Victor closes in.

And then, Victor closes his eyes.

There’s no doubt that the camera is angled this way to show that they are indeed kissing.

Then, we get this frame.

The positioning of their heads is a bit questionable. it seems unlikely that Victor’s lips could actually be on Yuuri’s- from this angle, it looks like his lips are against Yuuri’s cheek that we cannot see. Not to mention, Victor’s arm is blocking the actual connection.

This could have just been an animation fault, but despite that momentary shock, the reactions seal the deal for me.

Minako looks totally shocked and excited to see this, reflecting her persona of constantly sexualizing Chris and even Victor. And now, to see them kissing- of course she would look as flushed and excited as this.

But most of all, the reactions of the family. (My favorite reaction is Yuuri’s mom, who just looks pleasantly surprised). They’re all shocked, and hilariously, Yuuri’s sister looks a bit disgusted- if you have a sibling, of course you’ll be grossed out at seeing them kiss someone else; people with siblings understand that overreacting to the smallest things is totally necessary ;) but really, it’s for humor.

 The reactions are certainly convincing, but what did it for me is what Victor said.

So, people may say that since they landed with Victor’s head tucked by his ear, it’s proof that Victor did not kiss him.

But honestly, that makes no sense. No, they did not share a long, drawn-out kiss (which I believe will happen at the Grand Prix). But they definitely had a peck on the lips at the very least.

Why would Victor say that this was the only thing he could think of to surprise Yuuri more than Yuuri’s surprised him?

If it was just a hug, that would not make any sense. They have hugged before, many, many times, and even in front of the media, in front of others. No one would be so shocked to see that, and if that scene was meant to be a hug, there’s no way the scene would have went silent, that the angles shown would be shown, and the foreshadowing would have even happened.

One could argue that this was just fanservice, but we’ve already proven that Yuri on Ice is not one of those shows. It is not one to make a real relationship into just fujoshi bait. The fanservice is Chris- he is definitely sexualized, I’d argue, but to be fair, he is the one sexualizing himself and controlling his sexuality, so even that argument can be made. But regardless, Victor and Yuuri’s relationship is anything but shallow fanservice.

This is real, and they are not screwing around. 

To me, this was painfully obvious since as early as episode 2, but especially by episode 3.

We’ve just barely made it past halfway through this season (and with this show’s success, I would pray there will be a season 2, a movie, both, just something). We’ve been proven every week that Yuri on Ice can continue to shock us, to take it a step further, and to show Victor’s and Yuuri’s relationship developing even more.

So what else will they do for the next 5 episodes? Oh, I am so excited to see, and I have no doubt it will continue to make history, as it has proven now for 7 consecutive weeks!

pairing: Chris Beck/Beth Johansson, Chris Beck/Beth Johansson/Mark Watney (and any variation thereof) 
fandom: The Martian
note: I’ll be honest, I’ve been wanting to write this pairing for a while, and after seeing the movie I decided to finally do it. I know this might not be a popular pairing, but you know what? Fuck it, I wanted to write it so I did. I’ll probably still write more beckwatney than anything in the future, but I’ll probably write some more for these 3 too, and I hope you guys enjoy x

Chris was in love with Beth.

He knew that, she knew that, pretty much anyone who interacted with both of them at the same time knew that. It was one of those open secret kinda deals – everyone knew, but no one said anything. Mostly because everyone knew they were too professional to do anything about it (because Beth obviously loved Chris back).

So everyone was half right. Chris and Beth were in love. But they weren’t too professional to do anything about it.

They were just exceptionally good at hiding their relationship.

Chris, unfortunately, hid another secret. One that he thought no one knew, not even Beth.

“You’re in love with Mark?” Beth stared at him with wide, slightly hurt eyes.

Scratch that – no one but Beth knew.

“Beth-” Chris started, but Beth held up a hand.

“Don’t lie to me Chris,” she warned.

Chris swallowed and shook his head. “I, I won’t,” his voice shook, “just, just let me explain?”

He had no clue how she found out, but it was honestly a worst case scenario.

“Yes,” he whispered, “I’m in love with Mark,” and that was never something that he had honestly ever said out loud before. Chris had accepted he was bisexual years ago, but he’d never felt for another man like he did for Mark. Hell, the only other person he’d ever loved as much as he loved Mark was Beth, and it terrified him.

Beth inhaled, eyes suspiciously wet, but she stayed silent and let Chris continue.

So I met Chris Colfer yesterday!!!

Here is the full story!


I spent about two weeks time in total over the drawing I made of Red (my fav babe) from TLOS3. I have been giving Chris fan art for, now, the past 3 signings I have gone to. Each time I still get very nervous to give him something that really means a lot to me. I have such self-confidence issues especially with drawings and art. So the whole day I was worried about how he would react and such.

Anyway, I took a bus up from Virginia to PA to stay with my friend Heather for a few days until the signing. (I go home today unfortunately D: ) I had sent the drawing via mail (since it was too big to bring on the bus) about two weeks before hand. Anyway the day of the signing we picked up Heather’s other friend Melissa who is a big sweetie, and I drove them to the store since I was more familiar with the area. We get there in the afternoon, get our books and the waiting begins.

Myself and Melissa are sitting in chair outside while Heather is in her car and it started to DOWN POUR on us. Literally cats and dogs are falling from the sky! I was thinking it would have been hilariously ironic if one of us got struck by lightning! (*insert drum ba boom tsh noise here*)

So after about 20 minutes of raining the store let us inside as thunderstorms were rolling in to wait downstairs in the signing area. So Heather, Mel and I are all downstairs for a few hours, chatting up these very kind people in line and so forth and meeting up with friends from past signing.

Finally, the time rolls around. Everyone stand up knowing Chris was bound to come in at any moment. My heart starts to pound in my chest with nerves as I hold this stupid drawing I slaved over. Then an eruption of cheers as Chris arrived. I went quiet in awe, trying to see him but I couldn’t (for I am super short) and figured I’d wait until the line went up. The line started to move so quick, too quick for my liking, I feel like I’m having heart palpitations I’m so nervous!

Melissa goes up first and then before I knew it, his assistant takes my look to pass to Chris and there he is, looking at me. He says hello and I greet him back but my voice is so high from nerves like ah! I gave him my drawing and his jaw DROPPED open. Here’s the dialoge:


“Hi!”

“U-Um Hi Chris!”

“How are you?”

“G-Good. So I don’t know if you remember me but I always draw you something and I made another piece for you.”

I give him the drawing and his jaw drops -

“This is for me!?”

“Y-Yes, I hope you like it.”

“Oh wow! This is amazing! I can’t believe it  …”

I wrote my twiter name @LiamKorncake at the bottom and he sees it -

“Oh Liam! Is that your name?”

“Oh hi Liam! This is so amazing, thank you so much I love it!”


Then I started to cry a little bit, or try to not cry really because I’m so awestruck and I finally managed to say what I’ve wanted to say since the first book signing I went to so long ago.

“Chris, I just w-wanted to say” and I started really crying because I got really emotional and I’m so embarrassed I cried in front of him, “You have been such a positive influence in my life and, you have helped me through a lot of dark times. I always looked to you for inspiration to keep going and I just wanted to thank you so much. You’re my hero.”

He saw me crying and grabbed my hand and told me not to cry and he thanked me and just it meant so much to me. I was at emotional over load so I was done and stepped aside so Heather could see him and then we would leave o go upstairs and tell each other our experience and meet up with other friends.

Later outside, Heather told me that as soon as I walked away Heather told Chris I was her friend and how I had come up from VA and how much of an ‘artist’ and how amazing she thought I was and apparently both Chris and his assistant all agreed. I started to cry again because to hear that literally meant to much to me I can’t even describe it.

A few minutes later a mom and her two younger girls came out and approached me. They asked if I drew the 'Vote Red’ drawing and I said yes. They complimented it and I thanked them (all while I was still happy crying) and then they told me that Alla (did I spell her name right?) hung it up behind Chris and it hung there proudly behind him and my other friends in line came up and told me to and took pictures and like literally, my heart almost fell out of my butt. They even recorded my reaction to it while we were getting coffee!

It was just an amazing day. I have been going through a lot lately and struggling with so much and this was exactly what I needed. Chris is truly my hero for more than one reason and his books grant me an escape from even myself sometimes which I really need. So thank you Bookends, thank you to all my friends and thank you Christopher Paul Colfer!
