anonymous asked:

I'm sorry if this is bothering but do you know when holy ground was written? Assuming the line "note on the door with the joke we made" from dianna's bday party in April and EHC (I believe EHC was written with ed in May if I can remember correctly) could possibly been around that timeframe assuming both of those songs are about the same person.

You are very much not bothering me, anon; I am always happy to answer any and all such questions as I am able to. 

I am afraid that I don’t know precisely when Holy Ground was written. I do think, however, that sometime between May and June 2012 is a reasonable hypothesis.

  • The liner note would suggest at the outside that the song post-dates the 21st October 2011.
  • According to Jeff Bhasker, who produced Holy Ground and The Lucky One, the lyrics to both were complete already by the time of his first meeting with Taylor (x//x). This can have taken place no earlier than the 19th March, when Taylor returned to LA from Sydney, where, by her own admission, The Lucky One was written in a hotel room (x). 
  • If we accept (i.) that our ‘note on the door with a joke we’d made’ is  the note on Dianna’s door and (ii.) that it was written at her birthday party, then Holy Ground can not have been finished before the 28th April 2012.
  • Bhasker has said previously that his four-hour studio session with Taylor took place on a particularly uncomfortable ‘Summer day.’ Taking him at his word, the earliest estimate for production (and, thus, the date by which Holy Ground must have been written) is the first week of June; the latest the last week in August. Given that Red’s lead single debuted on 13th August (and, less convincingly perhaps, that she was shooting promotional materials in July) the later date is unlikely.  

When it is considered, in addition to these criteria, that May-June 2012 was, as you observe, a period of special activity in Red’s production history, there is no obvious incongruity. It is entirely plausible that Holy Ground should be a close contemporary to several other songs, which also have been associated with Dianna. Notably, Taylor wrote Everything Has Changed between the 15th May (when she and Ed met in Phoenix, for a first writing session) and the 28th May (when they were photographed together outside a studio in Santa Monica). Treacherous and Come Back…Be Here probably were written at roughly the same time: co-writer Dan Wilson has suggested that he and Taylor met over two days in the spring of 2012, with the final recordings being made a few weeks later. If we are right that Come Back..Be Here was a reaction specifically to the visit to London which Dianna made with Naya Rivera in mid-May, this writing session most likely took place between the 17th and 25th of that month.

Was there a particular event which determined the start of the iron closet?

Shit like Wellington in New Zealand and then them practically having foreplay on stage during the first few days of the U.S. tour, fans are screaming they’re about to come out, BAM suddenly Harry and Louis can’t be in interviews together anymore, they’re more separated on stage, homoeroticism between the other boys is ramped up (Louis acted especially uncomfortable with that), elounor is in your face, Louis does another ‘denial’ in the Much Music interview, Harry is thrown to the wolves in an uncontrolled interview where he’s asked if anyone in the band is hiding their sexuality, Harry suddenly goes crazy with the tattoos, which is stuff like ‘I can’t change’ and hangers and cages.

Lilo, Larry & Bonding

Hello, friends.

Happier times ahead! Picture it. April 2012. Still 5 more years of Obama left on the clock. OT5 interviews! Australia!

Let’s focus on this 39 second video where Liam says something that sounds “American” to the other 4 and Louis and Harry, especially, find it amusing.

Liam: Hiiiii everybody who’s watchin’ this from Hot Hits!

At this point, Niall laughs and Louis is amused. SO AMUSED!

Harry notices Niall/hears Louis giggling and turns to Louis, obviously.

Then Louis very cutely asks Niall “Why you laughin’?” And they all wait for Niall’s response.

Niall can’t/won’t make fun of Liam, so Harry to the rescue!

He turns to Louis and says very dramatically “I have an American…” And looks at Louis.

Liam is genuinely confused and then catches up and makes fun of himself. They all stare into the camera as Liam tries again.

But then Louis says with emphasis on his accent “’ELLO, everyone.” 

And that’s when Harry turns and stares.

And stares.

And cocks his head a bit as he stares fondly.

Harry finally turns back to the camera, looking almost drunk.

Then literally tries to snap himself out of it as Niall begins to speak.

Liam is trying to finish the bite with Louis off camera, but every time Liam tries to speak, Louis makes a weird noise. Finally, Liam breaks and yells the bite in a silly voice and Harry is amused/pleased at Louis’ antics as he turns to smile at him.

And stare some more.

Over it, Zayn yells “A massive thank you to everyone watching this, love you guys, thanks you for all your support.”

Niall can make fun of Zayn and does by repeating “Thanks you.” Louis says it repeatedly then, while Harry continues to just!

The end. 

Except to say this: I really feel like this American/Australian/American leg of promo they did in March, April, May and June 2012 allowed Louis, especially, to bring Liam out of his shell more in interviews and with them, personally. I think this is a really important Lilo-building time period and you can really see it here as Liam is teased and after being momentarily confused, joins in on the fun and then everyone is giggling and having a fun time in the middle of a very grueling schedule of interviews and other promo.

And Harry was there to support Louis in everything he did, amen.

Case Study ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ Midnight

Very serious warning with this part.  There’s nothing that really happens in this section that would require a warning beyond the general one I’ve given, but things get very intense in this part of the story.  This was very hard to write, and I imagine it will be very hard to read.  Please, make sure you’re in a good place before you read it, and also, as always - this doesn’t reflect everyone’s experience.  

October 2010 ~ November 2010 ~ December 2010 ~ January 2011 ~ February 2011 ~ March 2011 ~ April 2011 ~ May 2011 ~ June 2011 ~ July 2011 ~ August 2011 ~ September 2011 ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ October 2011, Part 2 ~ October 2011, Part 3 ~ November 2011 ~ December 2011 ~ January 2012 ~ February 2012 ~ March 2012 ~ April 2012 ~ May 2012 ~ June 2012 ~ December 2016

Warning: These stories all revolve around an AU world where Kurt and Blaine both have serious mental health disorders and end up rooming together at a boarding school geared towards special education.  I work in mental health, so I’m familiar with this stuff and will try to be as accurate as possible, but please keep in mind that this is a work of fiction.  There will be some angsty parts and some happy parts and many parts that are in-between, and I don’t have a definitive plan in mind other than a happy ending.

Also, Kurt and Blaine are in the same grade here, both juniors at the start of the story.

October 2011, Part 1 ~ Midnight

Blaine loved classes, except the last few in the afternoon when his mind typically turned to Kurt, Kurt, Kurt because they hadn’t seen each other for so many hours.  It helped, though, that last period this year was English.  Blaine loved English, and books, and stories.  They had just finished Among the Hidden, which was really, really good except the parts that were scary and sad, and next they were going to read Walk Two Moons, which Blaine was really excited for because Kurt said it was one of his favorite books from middle school.

Only Blaine hadn’t been able to concentrate today, not as much as usual.  He was feeling jumpier, like he had to get out of his seat, and for some reason everything was bothering him.  He’d been a few minutes late for breakfast this morning because he got distracted in the shower, and then Kurt had snapped at him, and then he’d snapped back at Kurt, and they had barely talked at all during breakfast and that made Blaine sad and also a little angry too, because really why did Kurt always have to be so particular?  And then he must have been in a bad mood because of that, because he yelled at Brittany this morning when she kept going on and on about Santana and unicorns, and he’d made her cry which really sucked, and yeah, he maybe wasn’t having the greatest of days.

But now it was English class, and he kind of felt okay with everything that had happened.  Actually, he felt kind of amazing.  He kept thinking about all those kids in Among the Hidden and how they never got to go outside.  And that must really suck, because Blaine loved to be outside.  And what would they do all day, anyway?  They must read a lot.  Blaine loved to read.  If only he could give them that, give them something to read.

Hi, I don't know if this is a smart thought or something but I just want to share, feel free to correct me! Okay, so I was thinking that their management wasn't stupid at the start, about the covering up of their sexualities-

-I think that if they would’ve come out as gay I doubt that they would’ve reached the success they had later on, I’m not saying that the closeting is a good thing, I just think that’s a smart move to make on someone they want to let on a teen market.

——-

It’s pretty standard that the more famous somebody is, the more iron their closet. What made this case a bit different was that in spring 2012, as their closet was being more harshly imposed, not only did they

1. get more famous, 

but also

2. they got more rebellious.

Well guys, here we are.  This part could probably use a little more revision, but I need to sleep now before work, so…

It has been such an honor to share this journey with all of you.  I can’t believe that this story actually came together this quickly, but it’s truly been a blessing, so… enjoy the epilogue!  Notes on the story, possibly additional drabbles (feel free to prompt, although I can’t 100% guarantee!) and the AO3 version will all most likely happen in near future :-)

Side Note: I told many of you that Blaine has intellectual disability.  That is what it’s called today, but when Blaine was diagnosed we were operating under a different diagnostic manual, and this story reflects that accordingly by using the multi-axial system and the term “mental retardation”.

Psychosocial Assessment Summary:

Kurt Hummel is a 16-year old boy who presents to Dalton roughly six months following the death of his father and only remaining biological parent.  He comes here voluntarily and with the blessing of his step-family, Carole and Finn Hudson, who appear sincerely supportive.

Kurt stared at his image in the mirror, straightening his tie, fiddling with the cuff links on his tux.  He found it strange that he didn’t feel nervous—at least not about the commitment he was about to make.  Lingering in the back of his mind was a great deal of anxiety about the ceremony and the music and the reception going smoothly, exactly as planned, but Kurt was doing his best to ignore it.  Those things weren’t what today was about, after all.

Today was about them: about Kurt and Blaine and everything they had somehow, miraculously built together.

September 2011 ~ Kindred

“Well, Kurt,” Mrs. Faber began, sitting prim and proper, legs crossed, in her seat.  Kurt liked that she dressed well, today in a classy apple-red cardigan with beading around the neckline paired with a simple, knee-length black skirt.  “I know last week we were beginning to discuss your relationship with your father, figure out where those sparks of your condition might have started.  Have you thought about it like I asked?  Do you have any insight?”

Kurt stared at her shoes: black pumps with 1-inch heels, strapped and fastened with black heart-shaped beads.  “I have something I’d like to talk about,” he said.  “If that’s alright?”

He didn’t have to look at her face to know she was surprised.  “Of course!” she said, not even trying to mask her excitement.  “Of course, we can talk about anything you like.  Please.”

“I’d like to talk about Blaine.  I mean—things have been good.  But it seems I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock.”

Kurt smoothed the lapels of his suit, took a deep breath, and walked through the doorway.  The little bell jingled, assuring that the pretty, middle-aged woman standing behind the counter took notice of him right away.  “Hello,” she said, offering him a smile.  “Welcome to the Cheesecake Boutique.  Is there something I can help you with?”

He straightened his posture, reached down deep for his confidence, and said—“Yes, actually.  My name is Kurt Hummel, and I’m here to convince you to hire me.”
