03. Valentine’s Day (M)

A/N: In honor of it being Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to embrace my trash self and write a little mini scenario for each member. Some are PWP some have backstory but they are all filled with filthy smut. Enjoy xx. :’)

Genre/Warnings: Smut; (pardon my vulgarities) featuring a Possessive Seokjin, The Pussy-Eating King Yoongi, Candle Expert Hoseok, Daddy Joon, Sub Jimin, Smug Tae, and Creative Kook.


Seokjin:

It was incredibly rare when Seokjin let his composure go and his patience wear thin. Normally he was gentle, the man taking every bit of his time to map your body out, making sure he takes notice as to what gets you writhing in pleasure beneath him. He’s patient, always putting you first, and he never asks for anything in return. But there are certain things that make him tick – one being when another man can’t seem to keep his eyes to himself.

Cleansing The Cards

It’s natural for tarot cards to accumulate & harbor energy, since that is the primary force they operate through; it can “clog” or “restrain” them, making them rather unproductive, though it doesn’t damage them. They simply need to rest and be refreshed every now & then, just like the reader does.


METHODS ||

I suggest trying all of them out & sticking to the ones that work for you.

Shuffling
Simply shuffle the deck with the intention of cleansing it, in whatever way that’s most comfortable for you & for as long as you feel you need to.

Sorting
Sort the cards – arrange them in order of the 22 Major Arcana and 4 suits of the 56 Minor Arcana. Allow the deck to “rest” in proper sequence for a while. You could also simply sort the cards so that all are upright & none reversed.

Knocking
Tap the deck against something, or tap it with your hands / another object.

Sunlight
(This method is better for projective/masculine decks.) Place the deck in sunlight and leave it there until you feel that all the unwanted energy has been burned, faded, blinded, or driven out.

Moonlight
(This method is better for receptive/feminine decks.) Place the deck in moonlight and leave it there until you feel that all the unwanted energy has been drained, coaxed, flushed, or guided out.

Salt
Place the deck in a sealed, air-tight plastic bag and bury it in organic salt. Let the salt soak up the excess energy for a few days, or until you feel it’s done.

Crystals
Place a crystal that corresponds to your intention upon the deck, or somewhere near it. You could also form a crystal grid around it.

Smoke
Pass the deck through the smoke of incense or burning plants that correspond to your intention (most people would use dried sage or rosemary).

Pendulums
Swing a pendulum of your choice clockwise in circular motions above or on the surface around the deck with your intention in mind until you feel that all the unwanted energy has been drawn out & expelled.

Sound
Play any instrument with your intention in mind, or place the deck near a speaker and play music that corresponds to your intention.

*You can also cleanse each card individually rather than the whole deck at once, if you prefer. It takes longer but it’s more thorough & “intimate”


MAINTENANCE ||

After cleansing your deck, store it in a special box/bag/cloth and/or with a quartz crystal to protect and generally upkeep its clean state.


Simple tip: cleanse your deck every time you use it. This is the easiest way to maintain a healthy deck, & the ritual of it can improve your general relationship with the cards as well as your connection with them in the moment.

Other good opportunities to cleanse your deck:
- It’s brand-new / inherited / borrowed / secondhand
- Another person has come into contact with it (especially if it was without your permission – the deck will let you know if it’s been meddled with)
- It has come into direct contact with a surface or object you didn’t want it to (this mainly applies to the tarot readers who take extra precautions to preserve the energetic integrity of their deck – such as only laying the cards on a designated cloth/mat/board, not allowing others to touch them, etc)
- It has come into direct contact with another deck
- It hasn’t been used for a long period of time
- It’s been accidentally scattered/messed up/physically damaged
- Many different readings have been performed with it
- An extensive/intense reading has been performed with it

Symptoms of a deck that needs to be cleansed:
- An irregularly large amount of cards drawn in a reading are reversed
- An irregularly large amount of cards are falling or popping out of the deck while you shuffle & handle it in general / the deck won’t stay together
- The readings are becoming unclear, or you’re having an unnecessarily difficult time interpreting & discerning their meaning; you’re getting mixed messages, the cards aren’t cohesive, and so on. If you feel like you’re not gaining anything out of the readings you do with a deck, you need to cleanse it.
- You get the sense that you need to cleanse the deck. This could manifest in many different ways; perhaps you feel bored of the deck or distant from it, or perhaps its “personality” changes, or perhaps you simply feel off about it. Common “off” feelings are slowness or lethargy, disengagement, bitterness, exhaustion, a sense of a contrary or combative disposition, misplaced irony, dullness or hollowness, strain, stress, aggravation, confusion, or alienation, and may come from either you or the deck itself when you interact with it.
- You can’t bring yourself to focus on the readings you do with it; neither you nor the deck can maintain your concentration / awareness / full presence.
- You consistently lose and misplace the deck or you can’t find it when you want to use it – or other people have moved it, even just once. If you don’t give it a spot and it tends to wander around your house, that may translate into your cards. Cleanse them and pick a permanent/regular place to keep them.
- The deck loses its “magic” and begins to feel like plain paper to you
- Using the deck consistently drains, frustrates, upsets, or annoys you / using it no longer brings you whatever beneficial quality it usually does.

Thought this was helpful.


“This morning I have been pondering a nearly forgotten lesson I learned in high school music. Sometimes in band or choir, music requires players or singers to hold a note longer than they actually can hold a note. In those cases, we were taught to mindfully stagger when we took a breath so the sound appeared uninterrupted. Everyone got to breathe, and the music stayed strong and vibrant. Yesterday, I read an article that suggested the administration’s litany of bad executive orders is a way of giving us "protest fatigue” - we will literally lose our will to continue the fight in the face of the onslaught of negative action. Let’s remember MUSIC. Take a breath. The rest of the chorus will sing. The rest of the band will play. Rejoin so others can breathe. Together, we can sustain a very long, beautiful song for a very, very long time. You don’t have to do it all, but you must add your voice to the song. With special love to all the musicians and music teachers in my life…..#Resist"

Open Letter to the Clique from Mark

Dear Skeleton Clique,

We are slipping.

Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun use their many talents to send a message of hope and community to those who feel hopeless and alone. The band’s mission is for this message to reach those who struggle (usually with depression, since this is the struggle they (specifically Tyler) understand best), in hopes that it will also help the listener overcome the obstacles they share. They do send other messages, but this is the most immediate and by far the most important.

When a fan base selflessly rallies around this kind of mission and message for the sake of helping others to stay alive, it’s unspeakably beautiful and actually lifesaving. When that same fan base selfishly rearranges its priorities to put fan-status ahead of the mission, it’s unspeakably ugly and detrimental to everything it stood for to begin with. It isolates the message from those who genuinely need it most. It’s an ego-driven, life-threatening mentality.

If there wasn’t so much at stake, I wouldn’t care enough to write a single word about this. The reality, however, is that a truly lifesaving message is getting heavy pushback from many who claim to believe and live out these truths – all in the name of self-glorification. When that happens, we withhold goodness from so many people. Again, we withhold aid from those who need it, and I refuse to just sit here and watch that happen.

I’m not just assuming this negativity and selfishness exists, but rather watching it unfold firsthand. Furthermore, I’m not just assuming that people could really benefit from the message. How many times have you read “Your music saved my life” in the comments? Has it saved yours? Would you want it kept from you?

Let’s take a look at some (paraphrased) attitudes we constantly see:

1) “I’ve been a fan since [album title/year]”
I completely understand why somebody would be proud to have watched a band grow from the beginning. In that case, there would be few who could claim to have seen what you’ve seen, and that’s special in and of itself.

However, it’s not meant to be a trophy for you to shove in anybody’s face. The most likely reason somebody would do this is so that others might acknowledge and validate some high-level of fandom that they possess. Instead of seeking this approval for no good reason, acknowledge your fandom to yourself and move on. Validate your fandom by being a fan. Support the band and its mission.

Honestly, you’d be hard-pressed to find more than one legitimate instance in which you should bring up how long you’ve been a fan. The only one I can think of (and it’s rare as hell) is if somebody asked you directly, but even then, just tell them and move on. Somebody was a fan before you, and there’s likely a band you’ll love that – through no fault of your own – you haven’t even discovered yet.

Boasting the number of years you’ve served in the clique doesn’t drive any of your points home. Not a one. Instead, it divides us, which is foundationally against the message and mission of the band to come together and stay alive.

2) “I hate that they’re getting famous.”
If that’s the case, you simply don’t love or support this band. Let me clarify.

There are only two cases (that I am aware of) in which it makes ANY sense to be upset about your favorite band getting famous: 1) They did so by way of “selling out.” In other words, they sacrificed their mission and message and abandoned what they once stood for as a means to an end (but even in this case, you’d be more upset about the means (selling out) than the end (fame)). 2) Their concert tickets are now much more expensive, which makes it more difficult for you to see them live. In these two cases, absolutely be mad.

The reality you need to accept is that if you love this band, it should bring you unspeakable joy when fame allows their message to reach more people. Otherwise, you’re pushing back against the mission of the band, likely because you just don’t want to share, which brings me to my next point…

3) “This is my band.”
I believe the “this is my band” mentality is responsible for a lot of the issues I’m discussing. When you link your personal identity so heavily with something that is fundamentally meant to be shared, you will inevitably forfeit your identity to the public when it actually becomes shared. You will lose yourself entirely.

4) “I hate how people call themselves fans but they only know Stressed Out/Tear in my Heart/House of Gold/Car Radio.”
Show me even one person who claims to be a Twenty One Pilots fan while simultaneously admitting to only knowing one or a handful of song(s). Seriously, if you see somebody do both at the same time, comment it below. Let’s see how many actually exist.

In other words, those who are upset about self-proclaimed fans only knowing one song likely have no way of proving that the person actually only knows the one song. Rather, they assume the worst of a stranger based solely on whichever song they listed as their favorite. If it’s a radio hit, they often call out the poor soul who simply said they like Stressed Out. Even if they do admit to only knowing the one song, in most (if not all) cases, it’s paired with something like, “…but I love this band,” suggesting they expect to dig further into the discography based off of how much they love what little they’ve heard.

The truth is that these songs are powerful enough for one of them alone to move somebody. If you’re not willing to accept that truth because you feel somebody isn’t doing the entire catalog justice, you don’t even understand these songs, let alone support the mission they drive. No matter how ideal it would be for someone to know the whole catalog, no matter how cohesive and intentional each album is as a whole, that can’t possibly diminish the fact that each song can speak volumes by itself. It’s no crime for somebody to recognize that. In fact, it strengthens this community and allows it to grow.

5) “It’s ‘Twenty One Pilots,’ not ’21p’ or ‘TOP'”
I actually agree that we should spell out the band’s name. They requested that we do so out of respect. However, we need to realize something.

Those who abbreviate the band name are almost never doing so to diminish what Twenty One Pilots is. Abbreviating is common with band names, and people are usually just being people. If you’re seeking to invite the person to understand the spelling-out of the band name, do so kindly and in a way that fosters community. This is usually the route the clique takes, and I’m grateful for that. This is just a friendly reminder.

Again, this is no time to take people’s innocent ignorance personally (see point 3). There is never a need to prove how much you know just for proof’s sake.That divides the fan base and pushes back against the band’s mission and message.

EDIT: Since this article was posted, Twenty One Pilots has released official merchandise with their band name abbreviated in nearly every way imaginable (2NTY ØNE PLTS, TØP, etc), which I have to imagine was their decision. Do what you will and remain inviting.

6) “Vessel is not their first album”
Again, those who suggest Vessel is the band’s first album almost never do so just to get under your skin. Don’t let it anger you. Instead, realize that it actually makes a lot of sense for someone to believe Vessel is their first album considering the difference between independent releases and label releases (some of their work isn’t actually allowed by law to be sold commercially or publicly). Be welcoming and kind. Nurture the clique. Let it grow.

7) “Twenty One Pilots is not indie/rock/pop/rap/whatever.”
The lines separating genres have become so blurred at this point that it’s almost pointless to even try to assign one to a band anymore. There’s no reason to get upset if you think Twenty One Pilots has been misrepresented by genre. That being said, by all means have a discussion about what you think it might be. But don’t get upset. That just doesn’t make any sense.

For the record, they’re self-declared as “Schizoid-Pop” and I have no idea what that’s even supposed to mean. Discuss.

SO.
Being a part of the skeleton clique should make you feel proud. We are the foot soldiers in places the band can’t reach alone. By spreading this message, you help the band help others, and that’s all they want. That, and to see the clique grow.

If somebody flat-out disrespects the mission and message of Twenty One Pilots, by all means fight back. Don’t be rude, just be real. Defend the truth with more truth.

In that same vein, spreading this message is crucial. Let it through. Do not keep it for yourself. This band is not yours, it’s ours. Not everyone in the clique is guilty of this selfish mentality. In fact, I’d say the vast majority is still on track. However, I say again, we are slipping. Let’s find our footing.

Stay alive, friends. |-/

“I know I just broke into your apartment in the middle of the night but there are some bad people after my special power over alternate universes and I’ve decided to put all my faith on you to save everything.”

“Your grandmother was the best in her field and you’re the only one she ever taught listen I know you don’t want this but we need someone to take the job as soon as possible and you’re our best choice.”

“People faint when my emotions run high I hate this power do you know how many times I’ve tried to explain this.”

“See this dog? Take it, he’s gonna be important.”

“I know you’re royalty, but there are greater things at stake, so put on the freaking gillysuit and follow me.”

anonymous asked:

if you had to describe the contrast between jungkook and jimin in terms of clothing, how would you do it? (without white shirt and timbs for jk and fluffy sweaters for jm hihi)

hmmmm,  jimin has changed a lot when it comes to clothing. during their debut days he used snapbacks and basketball shorts a lot and now he’s more….sophisticated? elegant? now he uses tight jeans/dark pants, slacks, dressing shoes, button up shirts… it’s like he has taken a liking to dress up a little bit more. 

x 

Jungkook, though, has kinda remained the same. he’s been seen wearing dress-up clothes too, but most of the time he’s wearing beanies, baggy pants and over-sized tees. he has that aura of bad boy, kinda?? idk, he’s more casual with his style.

x x

this is taking in what i see from the pics at the airports or when they go at music stations. idk, if i’m honest with you i like the contrast between them (specially at the latest v app broadcast)

“Don’t take this the wrong way,” Jack says as they walk up the stairs.

Bitty’s pale blond eyebrows almost disappear into his hairline. A bead of sweat rolls down the side of his face. “Okay, that’s almost, like, a guarantee that you’re going to say something offensive, dear.”

“Sorry.” Jack unlocks the door and hangs his keys on the hook. He takes off his toque. “I just don’t get it about Beyoncé.”

“How long have we been dating?”

“Nine months?” Jack counts on his fingers. “Yeah, nine months.”

“And how long have we known each other?”

“Two and a half years? At least?” Jack guesses.

“And how long have I liked Beyoncé?”

A/N: This is for @just-another-busy-fangirl​‘s 1K Music Challenge - the song “Something Good” from Sound of Music. This is one of my all time fav movies. I think “Something Good” is one of the most romantic songs ever. I knew when I chose this song for the challenge that the fanfic that went with it had to be special. Hope you like it. 


Fall quarter arrived and I was scheduled for only one class with Professor Winchester. I was disappointed, but I was taking 18 hours of class plus working at the bar. Our designated Tuesdays and Thursdays hook up schedule happened few and far between. After 10 weeks of seeing each other every day it was difficult to adjust to. But I knew my time with John wasn’t a mistake.

One Wednesday afternoon I was standing in the hallway outside our classroom talking to a friend when she noticed Professor Winchester walking down the hallway towards us. She froze mid-sentence, staring up in wonder at her crush. I nonchalantly looked over at him as he stopped next to us.

April 2nd had arrived and you had walked into the Camping World Stadium with a pep in your step eagerly anticipating the happiest day of your life. The day you’d been working for since you were 16; the very moment you can stand in the centre of that ring and hold that belt in the air knowing you are ultimately at the top of the mountain. The only thing that stood in your way… ‘The Queen’ and her unbroken pay-per-view streak. Simple you’d think; but she hadn’t maintained these wins for no reason- heck she’s a hard beat but all that it came down to was sole passion. Something you pride yourself on gaining over the long haul.

You were simply waiting nervously in the Gorilla area, the only form of comfort was your best friend, Dean Ambrose to confide in. Yeah… not like he was the best person for advice in the world. You two had been best friends for what seemed like a lifetime right from FCW to your current position today and it didn’t seem to be wavering; even if you’re on separate brands.

“C’mon kiddo, you’ll do fine. Just do what you do and you’ll come back with that title.” Dean was right in the middle of soothing you with the overall aim of stopping the nervous wreck you were evidently becoming at the present moment, when a company member practically took a hundred metre sprint towards you. The few words he muttered, well they instantly eradicated any remotely special feelings about the so-called ‘best day of your life’. “Creative team have changed their minds. Charlotte will retain tonight and you’re going to have to tap to the figure eight. Sorry.” Your mood almost visibly dropped. Guess there was nothing to fear at this point right? Maybe it was your intense stare, or the fist-clenched figure beside you but whatever it was… caused that runner to dart away before your words could even fight back.

“Y/N… I -” Dean tried to form a sentence to help the clear pain that was mentally inflicted on you; nothing would work though… nothing could. At least he tried but you just shook your head, hopping off the crate in a split second. A lone tear rolled down the side of your cheek, threatening to ruin the glam which was made special for the moment you would cherish for the rest of your life, however this was soon wiped as JoJo called your name and your entrance music hit. The time had finally come… the time to take a step into that newly meaningless ring…

15 minutes. Fifteen minutes was all it was but those mere few minutes were the longest you’d ever experienced… You had to let all you worked for just walk away, the long hours in the gym, the injuries, the heartwarming sensation felt when the crowds call your name… Was it really all worth it if this is how it ends. Those feelings didn’t leave you at any moment during the entirety of the match; weighing down on you every step you tried to take. Your mind just wasn’t in it solely focused on the outcome of this match which would not only devastate you, but what seemed to be the crowd as well.

We fought. I battled. But I couldn’t win.

The roars of the audience were muffled as a soul destroying big boot knocked you to your knees. And to your senses at that. You aimed to reverse, throwing punches left, right and centre- I mean the least you could do was put on a show. Then it happened; all in a split second. Blink and you would have missed it sort of thing. Charlotte threw your body backwards into a roll up pin, countering it at the last moment into her signature… it was time.

The bell rang, louder than normal it seemed but it was nothing compared to the mass of gasps and boos echoing the arena. The plain sight of Charlotte walking up the ramp, holding that belt high above her crown was enough to make you sick to your stomach. A lump almost immediately loomed in the back of your neck and a stream of tears threatened to spill out of your now blurry orbs.

You made you way back up the ramp, exiting through the curtain in an ever so slightly angered manner. Of course, your best friend was still there; eagerly waiting for you to just return and say everything would just be okay. It wasn’t though. It was easy to hide your emotions; to shield them behind a false attitude but in the face of others, that was borderline impossible. Warm tears began to flow in rapid streams, dropping to the floor as they rolled off your chin.

“Hey, hey stop” Dean began, rushing to your side to tug you closer towards his herculean build. Your sobs now became more rapid, soaking pools into his soft black t-shirt.

“I can’t do it anymore! All of this.” You whimpered, raking your fingers through your neatly curled hair. “I can’t seem to do anything right. Literally I’m on the verge of just leaving, they clearly don’t care for me. I’m put in meaningless matches week in and out and when I finally get my Wrestlemania moment they take it away from me. This isn’t even the first time; it happened before with my title shot against Nikki!”

Your temper grew, turning those tears of sadness into utter rage. “Look I know it seems like that but you know that’s not true. Don’t just give up all you worked for Y/N.” Dean reassured you, placing a tight grip on both of your shoulders. In a way he was right but being screwed over time and time again was never in the contract I signed up for.

“You know what? Give me a reason not to turn around and walk away now, because I can’t find one.” You faced away from him, smacking the palm of your hand against the crate that you not long before perched on, cherishing the moment that you would look back on in a lifetime to come. “Ugh.”

Unexpectedly a tight grasp tightened around your wrist, pulling you away from your fit of anger. You were suddenly really close to Dean’s chest, enough so that his scent filled your nostrils and close enough for you to see the discomfort in his eyes. “I love you.” 

Who knew three words could make such an impact on a person. Dean was clearly holding onto some form of hope; his eyes were puffy and from where you were standing, you could almost hear his heart rapidly beating in his chest. “Er- I didn’t mean to say that- aloud.” He stammered, tripping on his the majority of the words he was trying so hard to contain.

A whirlwind of emotions all seemed to crash into you at once. “Dean. Dean please.” You pleaded seeing his plain aggravation as his figure twisted away from your smaller one. “Did… did you really mean that?”

“Of course I did! Y/N we’ve known each other for so fucking long and I dunno, I guess it’s always been there, you know? You and Me. Look I know I just threw this onto you and damn I really wish I hadn’t but it’s out there now.” His falters just turned into rambles and he began to search for an explanation for his out of the ordinary actions. That and your reaction… “And I’m really fine if you don’t feel the same y-”

You had to give in to your emotions and just let whatever was next to happen happen. The sudden heat of the moment all felt so right, so you did it. You kissed Dean Ambrose. You lips both locked in a heated connection and at this point, you never wanted to let go. “I love you too Ambrose. I swear I do.” You found energy for the words, muttering between every breath for air. The kiss continued, becoming more and more intense by the second, I mean it wasn’t hard to deny you didn’t find him attractive before- like just look at him. You bit his lip, letting out a fraction of a giggle as his lips traced to your neck, nipping at your skin. before you broke away and playfully slapped his chest. “I swear Ambrose, I am not waking up with a hickey… Wouldn’t mind waking up with you though.” You gave a final wink, prancing back to your dressing room to get ready for this long-winded day to finally come to an end.

Some would say this day was a disaster waiting to happen, would’ve about a half an hour ago. That all came to an end however when one man made a day of misery transform to a day certainly to remember.

A/N - More Dean love for everyone! I actually really loved writing this slightly angsty but fluffy as hell fic! Hope you all enjoyed reading!xo ~ Nikkii

Also just like to add that I am aware Charlotte’s streak has been broken by Bayley! Just to avoid any confusion as the imagine is if this never happened :).

Your name: submit What is this?

Your dress color: submit What is this?


Your heels click on the cold stone flooring, a wave of perfume is in the air and your dress floats in the wind on this cozy evening in New Orleans. You hear the faint sound of music reaching out of the Mikaelson Compound, alongside the chatter of various supernatural and human guests.

It is another Mikaelson gathering and you hope to have the chance to talk to a certain sharp-dressed Original. You hope that tonight you find some clarity if Elijah truly feels the same way you do, or if you just imagined him flirting with you. Because there were these moments where you could swear he was trying to woo you. Either way, you desperately wish that tonight is the movie-like night where all the stars align and you finally grow closer.

At least that was what you hoped would happen. Standing there in the nicely decorated Compound, watching Elijah dance with a woman he seems very comfortable with pretty much destroys that fantasy. You truly thought that Elijah had grown a liking towards you, but seeing him there so, intimate with that woman lets you realize that you were wrong. He is clearly not interested like he is interested in her.

a/n: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEAGAN!! (I know, it’s not quite midnight yet for you, but it is for me so it totally counts!!!!) You’re the reason for this whole universe in the first place and you’re the reason I continue to cry every day about it, so I hope you enjoy this fifth installment!! <3  (and everyone go wish my dearest friend @swans-and-pirates a very happy birthday!)


It’s a rarity in the Jones house for there to be a morning of complete silence. Typically, there are two small bodies bouncing on her, begging her to get up. Or, her second favorite way to be awoken- yelling in her face about Daddy being gone.

Emma narrows her eyes at the sight of her alarm clock reading 8:00.

She turns onto her side, facing Killian’s side of the bed. He’s still sound asleep. He got in late and she picked him up from the airport, so he’s probably exhausted and catching up on some well deserved rest. With a small smile, she watches his chest rise and fall gently.

Lol I've literally just found this blog and I've yet to see a post I don't like ( btw your selfie game is on 🔥 ) I was wondering if you had any domestic elorcan headcannons ? Props to you for being my new fave tog blog ! x

THAT WAS SO AMAZING AND CUTE OMG GOD BLESS YOU IM WRITING THAT DOWN SOMEWHERE SO I CAN READ IT FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS

Thankyoouu omg I always think ppl just brush over my selfies but 😘😘😘

Domestic Elorcan woop!

-Elide knows how to sew and Lorcan is constantly ripping things in his Lorcan way and she just shakes her head and sews the buttons back on from that time they got frisky in the gardens

-Lorcan can cook quite well due to living on his own and actually has a love for food tbh despite what others may think. So he’s always getting up in the middle of the night when Elide is craving things or when she’s hungry and he never fails to make her happy with his concoctions

-They bake together ALOT from peanut butter to chocolate chip cookies at like 2 am and end up eating half of them while snuggled up on a blanket fort in their room (blanket forts ftw)

-When they’re a sufficiently established big family all the kids have sleepovers in mom and dad’s room and are just sprawled all over the big bed and Elide wakes up to a kid on Lorcan’s back and one under each arm

-Elide has sensitive af skin and Aelin and Lysandra introduced her to the wonderful world of pamper evenings and skincare and all that stuff and Elide just loves it soooo much and will have lotions and oils and body butters and scrubs galore, Lorcan of course entirely rejects the idea of this but one time he was v tired bc he’d just come back from a mission to a toddler tantrum from Marion and had to take care of that bc she wanted daddy not mommy but also didn’t really know what she wanted. So when he finally sets her down to bed he was just exhausted and sore all over

-so Elide took care of him by making sure he had a nice long bath filled with all the essential oils that she likes to put on and washed his hair and all, and afterwards when he was naked and lying in bed, she massaged him with the lotions for his skin and Lorcan thinks ok maybe this isn’t so bad after all

-he is a master of pampering whenever Elide is pregnant and this isn’t weird territorial bs it’s more like hey you really shouldn’t get up all day but guess what here are some things you can enjoy and do all day without getting up and Elide is usually convinced 

-LORCAN BABYSITTING CAN YOU IMAGINE LIKE 50 KIDS CRAWLING ABOUT AND CLIMBING ON TOP OF HIM AHAHAHAH

-Elide always reads with some part of her body resting on Lorcan and later tells him about everything she liked and disliked about the book and what characters she favours and Lorcan always listens to her intently and loves when she does this because she’s come a long way since being illiterate.

-Lorcan’s fav drink is coffee while Elide’s is hot cocoa especially although she will drink anything

-Elide learns to knit and often Lorcan will play absentmindedly with a thread or the end of the scarf she’s told him to hold onto

-When the kids are born they accidentally wreck the sweater and gloves Elide was working on for Lorcan to give him on Yulemas and that’s how Lorcan finds out and Elide is an absolute inconsolable wreck although she doesn’t blame the kids but she is quite upset that this happened and Lorcan has no idea what to say or do except hug her and tell her it’s alright

-Lorcan never has the patience Elide does to make the adult sized things so she teaches him to make warm baby socks and hoods bc he always loves pampering his kids and sometimes he involves Marion as well by asking her what colour she would like and does she want smth special on it (Marion is a night baby so for months it was constantly the moon and stars and they were on a 100 things she owned but she still love them)

-Lorcan will take Elide to musical places for dates and nights out and they will have a nice time listening to everything bc Lorcan has a soft heart for music

-Lorcan will occasionaly do Elide’s hair or help with it or braid it whenever she’s nearby and he’s bored

thats it for now hope you liked it!

John Lloyd Young - The Language of Soul

People who don’t know about @johnlloydyoungfriends often ask me, “Why do you fly across the country or drive several hours to see someone perform?  Is it really worth it?  Is he really that good?”

So I explain that yes, he really is that good, and it is completely worth it - and why.  After seeing him perform Tuesday night at Cafe Carlyle, I have even more reasons to give them as to why they should take any opportunity they can to experience a JLY show.

JLY proves that he can take any song and make it his own, no matter what language the song happens to be in.  He takes the time to explain a little bit about each song, and it’s a pleasure to learn more about these songs and why they are so special.  But even if he didn’t, we would still be moved - with JLY, music is truly the universal language as he not only performs each selection fluently, but with so much emotion that you can’t help but feel every word and note along with him.  He sang “Ming Ri Tian Ya (If Tomorrow Comes)”, which I have heard several times but still moves me to tears.  It was my first time to hear him sing “Usted”, which is a song I already loved…but hearing him perform it took my breath away.  He debuted a new language this time at The Carlyle, performing “Parla Più Piano (the theme from The Godfather) with so much passion that you could feel it throughout the room.  He was born to sing in Italian - and not just because he is Italian.  It’s because he feels it in his soul, which he does with every song he chooses in any language.  He told us how he learned this song because it was requested to be sung for the Vice President and his wife a couple of weeks ago, and how nervous he was to do it that first time.  Needless to say, he has perfected it in a short amount of time.  Bigger than Pacino and DeNiro - my hand to God.  :o)  

It was also my first time to hear JLY perform the Doors classic, “The Spy”, and I was definitely not disappointed.  You get that feeling that he just might know the deepest secret fears of everyone in the room, just from the way he performs it.  It’s better than the original, as are “Maybe I’m Amazed” and “To Make You Feel My Love” - he is so good at making all of these songs his own that it’s hard to listen to the original after you’ve heard JLY.  I actually heard “Maybe I’m Amazed” come on the radio as I was driving home from NYC yesterday…and no offense to Sir Paul (who I am a fan of), but his version just didn’t do it for me - it paled in comparison to JLY’s.  It really is a gift to be able to do that with songs like “Just One Smile”, “Since I Fell For You”, and so many others.

Of course he also treated us to “Sherry” with the moves, letting us sing along as well.  Most special for me was “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” - which is a personal favorite of mine for many reasons ever since I was a little girl.  He told us how he has not only sung this one (like “Sherry”) over three thousand times, but how many Presidents and dignitaries he has performed it for, including the recent performance for current Second Lady Karen Pence.  After hearing all of that, it made it even more special to have him serenade us with this song…and yes, that also took my breath away.

One of the best things about seeing JLY perform is hearing all of these various anecdotes that he is gracious enough to share with us, that make us feel like we are all sitting in his living room listening to him share his stories.  Stories about his trip to Cuba with the arts delegation are always touching, especially hearing how he performed for and with Smokey Robinson, and how all of the schoolchildren who met Smokey had no idea who he was, yet ran to him and clung to him like a grandfather because of his sweet spirit.  And one of my favorite things is hearing the stories behind the songs that JLY wrote with Tommy Faragher, as well as songs that Tommy and other songwriters wrote that JLY has chosen to perform and/or record.  It’s always fascinating to hear how a song came about or where the idea came from.  And he really shines on the original material - I can’t wait to hear “Almost There”, “Alone Together”, and “Slow Dawn Calling” on a recording….and I truly do believe that these songs belong on the radio, especially “Slow Dawn Calling”.  I have faith that we will all be hearing it there soon, and that many of the people who ask me if JLY is really that good will take notice and realize it for themselves.  That day is definitely coming.

Other highlights of the night?  Having JLY come and hang out with us at the bar while Tommy and the band performed an amazing instrumental number, watching many members of the Carlyle staff dancing to the music (I caught a reflection of one of them in the mirror by the bar - dancing in the kitchen), and seeing JLY gain new fans that were seated at the bar with us who had never seen him before and were completely blown away.  These two ladies discovered what we all know, and what others will soon discover - that John Lloyd Young is an incredibly talented man with a beautiful soul who can work magic with anything he performs.  He speaks - and sings - the language of soul.  If you have the chance to see him perform, do it, whenever and wherever you can.  He really is THAT good.  :o)

It’s time to close our special Harp Music Week, here on Musica in Extenso! For the final post I choose a work from a famous and prodigious composer, Claude Debussy.

Today on Musica in Extenso:

Claude Debussy

Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp

One of the most unknown and underrated chamber works by Debussy. It has an unusual instrument combination, chosen by Debussy as a best for the mood of the piece. Changing between pleasant and dissonant, with unique chord progressions, it’s truly a gem of early 20th century chamber music. The link will take you to a split 3 part recording, I chose this one because it’s simply the best one.

Movements:

  1. Pastorale
  2. Interlude
  3. Finale

Thank you for your attention and special thanks to the Editorial Board! Have a beautiful weekend!
