What she means:
Why have All Time Low never played A Daydream Away at an acoustic set? Like, it's understandable why Alex wouldn't play it at any other live show since the acoustic portion staples are Remembering Sunday, Therapy, and now Missing You but really? Never an acoustic show. It's objectively one of their best songs with its use of metaphors detailing a relationship never becoming a 'real' one but still covering there was strong feelings there. Even though it was on Dirty Work (an album they need to stop besmirching the name of) it's still a pretty great song and perfect for an acoustic set. Is there a personal reason Alex doesn't play it like Lullabies? Does it bring back a painful memory he'd rather forget? I need answers.
Request: “Love your writing!! Can you write a Shawn imagine about him being nervous about meeting your family for the first time and he ends up feeling sick the whole way there but you tell him to just relax and it’s just nerves but once you get there later that night he just continues to feel worse and worse and ends up falling really ill and you feel bad for him and take care of him?? And maybe he’s embarrassed about being sick at your parents house??“
Pairing: Shawn Mendes x reader/female character Rating: General audience Words: 1353
John Mayer is playing softly on the radio as they speed past the trees on the side of the highway. Shawn buttons and unbuttons the top button of his shirt in the side view mirror for what feels like the hundredth time. They’re getting closer to her parents’ house and he can feel his stomach turn at the thought of standing in front of them for the first time. He looks hesitantly at the tie in his clammy palms every few seconds.
“Do I have to wear the tie?” he groans. “I feel like I’m already in danger of asphyxiation with this shirt collar.”
“If I have to wear this dress, you have to wear that tie,” she says, eyeing the piece of silk in his lap. “Besides, it was your idea.” She receives nothing but a pitiful expression in response. “Fine,” she gives in. “But you’re helping me out of this damn thing when we get back home.” She rolls her eyes when she sees the smug smile on his face. “Not like that! This dress is tight as hell and I’m going to need help taking it off.”
“Oh, so no sex?” Shawn smirks at her. She smiles and shakes her head as she puts on the blinker and turns onto a smaller road.
