  • what she says:i'm fine
  • what she means:chris wolstenholme is a really good bassist. i mean have you heard hysteria? the entire thing is played in 16th notes and his fingers go at the speed of flaming hell fire. don't even get me started on knights of cyndonia. the finger tapping on that track is incredible. he can show off but knows when to take a back seat and just be the driving low end of the band. i mean he plays slap on songs like undisclosed desires and panic station yet it's really understated and not faffy at all, it's really easy to make slap bass into a narcissistic spectacle but he's humble about it and only does what's needed and it sounds awesome. chris writes really good creative bass lines and doesn't always stick to the root notes. chris can sing and play bass at the same time which is harder than singing and playing guitar. chris wolstenholme needs appreciation.

Translation of Nine Muses’ tweets after 150707 The Show.

You can’t really be a wallflower when you’re a part of space-loving, futuristic rock oddballs Muse, so it’s no surprise that drummer Dom Howard is both one of the most enthusiastic and one of the most creative modern drummers out there. With only three of them making enough of a racket to fill stadiums, his role is huge.

Bedtime Stories

Based on Prompt by fangirl-who-dreams : “… I was wondering if you’ve gotten a request for a prompt where the raptors love the reader to either sing or read to them, like the reader’s voice calms them. It would be so cute!”

 

You stare at your bookshelf, sighing. You’ve read every single one of your books and you really need some new ones. However, there isn’t exactly a library on the island and you don’t have any friends to borrow from. You grab Pride and Prejudice off the shelf, along with your picnic blanket and leave your trailer.

When you get to the paddock, you open the safety gate, walking in and laying out your blanket.

“Okay, ladies. You’ve exhausted my resources, so were going to have to have a re-read.” The girls rush over to meet you at the gate as Barry walks up.

“I’m gonna head out for the night. Owen’s covering for me; he’ll be here in a few minutes.” He smiles as the girls form a small dogpile next to you. “Will you be good till then?” You forgot that he had a date tonight.

“Yeah, of course.” You smile at him and wish him a good night.

Opening your book, you lean against the wall and begin.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man, in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” As you begin to read, you hear soft footsteps behind you, but ignore them. The girls look up at his approach, but their eyes quickly settle back on you. You continue to read until their eyes begin to droop and you see their breathing slow.

You look up to see Owen leaning against the wall. “Come here often?” he asks, smirking.

“Every night,” you smile back. Owen is quite a flirt, but it never really bothers you; it’s pretty cute.

“When Barry said you would be on the night shift, I thought he meant like supervising, not reading bedtime stories.” He jokes with you but it annoys you a little, his teasing tone.

“Well, yeah. They won’t go to sleep if I don’t.” You shrug your shoulders as you push yourself up off the ground. “I used to only do it a few times a week, but then they would start whining at night, refusing to go to sleep unless I read to them.”

He laughs at this, “I guess they like your voice.”

You correct him, smirking. “Or they just like my taste in literature.”  He nods his head, still smiling, but then you frown for a second, “I’ve read all my books though. I need to go get some new ones.”

He looks surprised down at you, “Well, I mean it’s not like they can tell the difference.”

You stare at him blankly and , honestly, resist the urge to slap him.


“How can you say that?” you try to keep your voice quiet, but can’t help the slight annoyance that rises up in you. “They’re not just animals, you know. They’re smart! Brilliant even!” you feel your face getting red; “They’re infinitely smarter than us, that’s for sure!”

He stays quiet during your rant but when you’re finished, he places his hands on your shoulders. “Hey, I’m sorry. You’re right.” He nods, “I didn’t mean to get you worked up.”

You look into his green eyes, and feel a calm come over you. There’s something about his hands on your skin and his eyes looking deeply into yours. You realize you haven’t said anything; you’ve just been staring up at him, but he doesn’t seem to mind. He leans closer so that your faces are inches apart and you can feel his breath on your face.

“Owen.” You whisper, closing your eyes. His hand moves to your cheek and he pulls your face to his, closing the small distance.

The taste of his lips reminds you of the forest: fresh-cut redwood trees and dirt. His hand moves to your hair as he deepens the kiss, gently pushing you up against the wall.

As much as you thoroughly enjoy kissing him, you hear a whining noise and break apart suddenly. It takes a moment for you to look away from his eyes. You let out a soft chuckle when you realize that you’re both breathing heavily as if you just finished running a race.

You finally pull your eyes from his and look down at the source of the intrusion and you see Blue staring up at the two of you. She opens her mouth to whine once more and you laugh, nodding your head.

“Okay, fine.” You say, “One more chapter and then you’re back to bed.”

Owen laughs beside you, sliding his hands into his pocket. “I should leave you guys alone,” he says looking towards Blue. “She won’t be able to concentrate with me around. “

You shake your head, smiling. “I’m sure you won’t be a distraction to her.”

But then he looks at you with that smug smile and says, “I was actually talking to Blue.” He winks and walks out of the cage. Your heart twinges at the thought of him walking away after what you just went through. You think about going after him, but he peeks his head back around the corner and says, “When you’ve got her back to sleep, perhaps you can come join me.” He smirks at you once more and finishes, “Maybe then we can finish what we started.”

Your face goes tomato red and you look down at Blue, listening to his footsteps fade away. Touching your fingertips to your lips, you let out a soft breath. You don’t exactly know where this is going to go, but you do know one thing: Owen is one hell of a kisser.

Jealousy

Based on Prompt by yuffie-materia-princess:  “Owen getting jealous over guys openly flirting with the reader when they aren’t even together but in the end he makes sure everyone knows that the reader is alphas female?”

You’ve been working at the park for four months now and so you were excited to get transferred to work with a carnivore. However, you didn’t realize how many men worked at the raptor paddock. You knew a few of them: Barry, Owen, a couple of interns; but you quickly found out that all the men in the paddock think with their dick and not their brain. You had been winked at, catcalled, and flirted with. All day, you’ve been called “Baby”, “Sweetheart”, “Beautiful”, and “Kitten”.

However, it’s easier to play along than to fight it; at least then you have something to do. So you’ve been casually flirting back all day. The only person today that doesn’t seem to be in a good mood is Owen. All afternoon he has had a mad pouty look on his face, and has more often than not had his arms crossed. You can’t imagine what’s bothering him as he loves to flirt. He’s the one person that you would actually enjoy flirting with as his innuendos usually leave you laughing so hard your stomach hurts.

You decide to approach him up on the catwalk, thinking that maybe you can brighten his day. “Hey there Gravy,” you say teasing with your nickname for him.  “You wanna join the fun? I think the guys are taking bets of who’s actually gonna take me home.” You bump his shoulder with yours laughing lightly. “If you put money on it, I’ll go home with you and we can split the cash.”

You’re almost offended when he doesn’t smile at this, but simply grunts at you. “Owen, what‘s going on? You look like you want to strangle someone.” Your eyebrows crease in concern and you place your hand on his arm. “You know you can tell me anything.”

You’ve never seen Owen like this before and it’s starting to worry you.

“Just don’t think it’s funny.” He says, roughly.

You don’t really understand so you ask, “What’s not funny?”

“You encouraging them like this. They just want to get you in bed, do you realize that?” His sudden anger confuses you and you place your hands on his shoulders, looking into his eyes.

“Whoa there, big boy. It’s just harmless flirting; you think I’d actually go for any of those guys?” You try to joke but it doesn’t change anything. “What’s really going on Owen? Why does this bother you so much?” you take a breath, giving him a chance to speak, but continue when he doesn’t, “I’ll stop. It’s obviously bothering you, so it’s over. Okay?” He still won’t look at you so you move a hand to his cheek, and he looks down to your eyes.

“Did you ever think that maybe I don’t like seeing you flirt with them?” He looks conflicted, like he doesn’t want to be saying this and then it hits you. You understand why he always likes flirting with you, and why seeing you flirt with other guys upsets him.

“Owen, are you-” You stop for a second, not sure what you want to ask. “Do you want, I mean.” You take another pause as he stares at you. His eyes look like they’re begging you, but you don’t know exactly what he wants. You see that confliction flash in his eyes once again before he wraps an arm around your waist and pulls you closely to him. You hear catcalls and whistling but all you can feel is his lips crushed to yours. You sigh into him and kiss him back. When he pulls away, you hear clapping all around and realize that the guys are cheering for you.

“Well, it’s about damn time!” Barry shouts from below.

You laugh and bring a hand to your face, slightly embarrassed. One of the guys comes up behind Owen and slaps him on the shoulder. “Well, I guess she’s off limits now.” You both laugh at this and Owen just looks down at you smiling, “Damn straight.”
